    Calculator

    Can someone suggest a good "tape" calculator program. I'm looking for a replacement for the standard windows calc. I want it to resemble and function like a ten-key or a printing adding machine. Where it actually shows the history or "tape".

    I know all about search engines and shareware sites, etc. I was just hoping someone had experience with a good one and could point me in the right direction.

    Thanks <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    I use TapeCalc2, which is a PC Magazine utility. You need to sign up for a free PCMag / Ziff Davis account to download utilities, but the price is right.

    You might also want to check out PC World's site for downloads as well as TUDOGS and TUCOWS. They usually have lots of good stuff. Alternatively, try a Google search . HTH

    Re: Calculator

    Hi Ricky

    Samantha has the answer (TapeCalc) for you considering the "tape" requirement.
    Calc98 is what you'll find at John's link...it's my favorite...I can set it as "always on top" and tuck it into a corner,out of the way when I'm doing work requiring a lot of calculations or conversions.
    Both are worthwhile having as part of your accessories arsenal.

    Have a Great day!!!

    Re: Calculator

    Isn't it amazing, all the "knowledge" you pick up from innocently following threads here in The Lounge! All these years I've been a PC user and I've never stumbled on TUDOGS before or heard anyone mention it. Thanks for the knowledge, Ron!

    Re: Calculator

    I downloaded both! I could've downloaded 1000 calculators and might never have stumbled across these two jewels. That's just one of the remarkable characteristics of the forum. There's always good advice available from good folks. Thanks <img src=/S/cheers.gif border=0 alt=cheers width=30 height=16>

    Re: Calculator

    John - It's funny that the ultimate calculator of all calculators, Excel is sometimes a bit more than one needs... It's like needing a one bedroom apartment and getting stuck with the Sears Tower! <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>. Thanks for the link, that calc is now part of my <font color=blue>Desktop Accessories</font color=blue> folder.

    Re: Calculator

    Thanks Samantha -
    I have replaced my standard Windows Calculator with the TapeCalc. It was exactly what I had in mind. <img src=/S/groovin.gif border=0 alt=groovin width=21 height=21>

    Re: Calculator

    Me neither. Known of TUCOWS for a long time, but never heard of TUDOGS. Pretty soon there'll be a whole Noah's Ark of such sites!

    Re: Calculator

    I couldn't resist and the spare time was killing me...

    TuPigs, TuCats & TuSheep will get you to a site (although not software related!)

    Lions, Tigers, Monkeys, Ducks, Hens, Apes, Fish, Geese, Goats, Chicks, Ferrets and Turtles won't do a thing! <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>
