    If you go to Advanced Mode when replying, you have a button under Aditional Options called Managed Attachments, conveniently badly named and out of view.

    The image will then be displayed at the end of your post.

    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    Do they even make scientific calculators that don't have a solar panel ? I haven't seen a non-solar calculator since the 80's.
    Until you can build a working general purpose reprogrammable computer out of basic components from radio shack, you are not fit to call yourself a programmer in my presence. This is cwhizard, signing off.

    My school bookshop sold one from Sharp in the late 90's. I bought the solar panel version instead

    My T86 graphing calculator or whatever from 2004 took like 4 AA batteries or something, but they didn't die often.

    Here is the one I carry, I actually preferred the older model, which was lighter and had a better key layout and did HEX, OCT, and Binary conversions, but they don't make that model anymore.

    The HP 48 series sucks too much energy to use a solar panel
