However the answer may have eventually been extracted from Arthur Dent's brain, without the use of sharp cutting implements. Whilst marooned on Earth two million years before he was born, Arthur managed to find a possible question with the help of Ford Prefect using a set of home made Scrabble tiles. The answer encoded in Arthur's brain, through the random pulling of tiles, was:
What do you get if you multiply six by nine?
Note: if you are currently thinking that in base 13, 6 x 9 is 42 which is 54 in base 10 then the author recommends you leave your computer immediately and do something else with your life before you realise how truly sad it really is. The Question: What is Total Pair of Dice, or What is total paradise? Was put forward by Dan Smith of Leavenworth, Kansas in 1988 . If you add up the sides on a dice 1+2+3+4+5+6 = 21 X 2 = 42.
"To be or not to be." That is the question, as stated by Shakespear in Hamlet, which we all know, an infinite number of monkeys locked in a room with type writers will eventually come up with. 2b or -2b = the absolute value of 42

Sorry guys, but I don't get your jokes;( typing formulas in search bar doesn't work. Just need addition, subtraction, multiplication, division and square root. I'll try to handle it by myself, there are sources available.

No joke, at least on my K3 it does work. Search from the home screen, look at the results to get the computation from the first entry:

Its no joke.

just type it in the search bar...

*blows dust off of 3*

Hold down Alt - Now Q W E R T Y U I O P
when pressed will be 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0

To get the Syms ( * / - + ) you would press (Sym) [this is pictured]

I enter a sum 12 / 6 * 21 and then press (<-' ) Key

The result is displayed in the search.

-----------------------------------------------------

Our Jokes refer to 42. From the Hitchhikers series of books. That is all.

Hope that is nice and clear now.

I finished the work.

Link elided out of deference to Original Threads Author out of respect for him releasing his sources.

Yeah, I got Touch, and its not that smart to calculate
twobob, impressive work, but I like the ease of use of KindleCalc - add it to documents and it works. I had KUAL, but uninstalled it, as I like keeping things simple, only necessary modifications.

PS. didn't read "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" yet

each to their own...

Was fun to build. Pressing two buttons to make it run is simple enough for me.
If you only want to press one button? sobeit.


IIRC I refused to run this as the Author refused to release his source code.

Thus this (KINDCALC) is dead to me for "political" reasons.


I take it all back. He released them
