Geir will be delighted that you don't have the same favorite non-calculator that he does. ;-)

BTW, isn't it ironic that the TI Programmer is NOT programmable?!?

Just curious,
Can't the 15c do everything that the 11c can do and then some? In other words, is the 15c basically a superset of the 11c? I ask because I'm thinking about buying Thomas For 15c emulator (Santa is bringing me an iPod Touch end gen.). ;-)

Thanks,

Kevin

Yes, if you have a 15C you should not need an 11C. However I don't have a 15C, just a 11C which is a very fine numeric calculator.
