I still have no idea what you guys are talking about.
The acronym stands for "What would St. Nicholas do?" It's a parody of "What would Jesus do?" which was a popular saying among American Protestants a few years ago. It was all the rage to wear a cheaply made bracelet with the acronym WWJD.

And now its side hugs. I'm glad they've developed so well.

Oooh, Post #5,005, a palindrome.   ;)
I guess it's too late now, unless I want to delete on of my posts, but the number of the post I submitted immediately before this was not only a palindrome, but also a unique repetition of one digit.  Without the comma separator, it could even pass as a binary number.

I've gone on a posting fast with the goal of lowering my average posts per day to less than 8 by my second anniversary on this forum.

Right now, I have to average 5.39 posts per day to accomplish the goal.   :)

Why is it that I continue to type "form" everytime I want to type "from?" Maybe I need to type "from" a thousand times a day until I can get it right. :-[

You know what would be cool, is that the New Year's after next, we can write: 1/1/11.  That would be fun to write many times.

Both, although I drink either ginger ale or chocolate milk at the stroke of midnight except I rang in 2004 with a champagne toast.   ;D  Since then, I try to go to bed before Midnight before people fire guns and firecrackers in the air.   ;)

Vertical bars should be the standard.

1/1/11 = .0909090909090909090909
1-1-11 = -11
1|1|11 = The date almost 13 months from now.

I think it might be more customary to solve 1/1/11 as 11. ;)

If you assume that it is one operation, instead of a series.  Remember, left to right for the same operation.

Except with division you generally go from bottom to top and what you have is simply the text form of:

  1  
----
  1  
----
 11

And hence why I prefer post-fix over in-fix notation, with:

1 1 11 / / = 11

there would be no question, or as you're interpreting the infix notation:
                  __
1 1 / 11 / = .09

Prefix works good to, it's great for Abstract algebra, but a bit difficult for practical use:

/(1,/(1,11)) = 11

or
                    __
/(/(1,1),11) = .09

Ummm...you can still get HP RNP Calculators

The Graphing Model (HP 50g):

http://www.amazon.com/50g-Graphing-Calculator-F2229AA-ABA/dp/B000GTPRPS

The Scientific Model (HP 33s)

http://www.amazon.com/HP-33S-Scientific-Calculator-F2216A/dp/B0000DK6G9/ref=dp_cp_ob_e_title_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1259954032&sr=1-11

Unfortunately they got rid of their classical buttons, guess it didn't make the calculators look modern enough, I'm really not fond of the 33s' buttons and miss my old HP48gx with expansion card slots, which broke. But the 50g is an overall better calculator, minus the buttons.

I have an HP48gx programme for my Windows Mobile phone, no equivalent iPhone version?

On another note, I get my new Droid today!!!

Yeah, I have seen the HP 50g at local stores with SD card capability.  I haven't seen the HP 33s around.

A friend in college also had the HP 48GX.  I liked that calculator even though it cost $300 in the early 1990s.

I have an HP48gx programme for my Windows Mobile phone, no equivalent iPhone version?

Here?

Congratulations.   :)

Keep it up.  7,000 posts can be quickly reached in this thread.
"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6

I am playing on here instead of writing my term paper.

I thought everyone plagiarized Wikipedia in these days although I don't see much of that occurring at my local college library.   :angel:

Term papers have become anachronistic.

I don't know - if the professor actually makes them do research, then it's still a good model.

You'd think in the computer age that the government wouldn't still be so clueless about what it's doing. You'd think.

1. Women blink twice as often as men.
2. Increased blinking is a non-verbal sign that someone is lying.
3. Therefore, women lie more often than men!

But we all knew that already :P
