ANGER

I am going apopletic with rage. I shall start ripping things apart soon. Too bad my father took down the punching bag we had hanging on the wall. I would have annihilated it.

I HATE STUPID FUCKING CALCULATORS! How bloody complicated can it be to plot a few points for me and draw a line of bloody best fit? I COULD DO THAT IN TWO SECONDS WITH A PEN AND PAPER! And yet this expensive piece of plastic and metal can't do it! I don't know what to press anymore! I tried the rational approach, I tried the guessing, I tried the hysterical pressing-every-single-button-randomly, but it WON'T DO IT! And the worst thing is I actually need printouts from a GDC for the bloody portfolio that is supposed to be due TODAY!

And I'm sick and there is no chocolate in the house and even if there were I would just feel worse, but that doesn't stop me from wanting it! And there are a million things I have to do but I've spent HOURS on this bloody, idiotic, obsolete, incomprehensible PIECE OF TRASH YOU CALL A CALCULATOR!

First it shows me "Err:Invalid Dim" no matter what graph I try to plot, be it y=sin(x), y=2x or even y=10, the stupid crap. I don't even know what invalid dimension MEANS. I tried understanding it on my own and testing different buttons. I tried looking in the stupid instruction manual but the most difficult thing in there is the explanation to how to figure out five squared plus three. I tried talking to someone, they didn't know. I called a friend, she suggested some things. And after having tried them, it got me to try a thing of my own and LO AND BEHOLD - the bastard managed to plot y=x! It's a miracle!

And then comes the drama of trying to get it to plot 0;3, 1;12, 2;48 and 3;192. Like I said, this would take about two seconds by hand! What am I supposed to type into y= here, huh?! HOW DO I GET IT TO PLOT THOSE STUPID, SIMPLE POINTS?

OBNOXIOUS, SCHEMING AND PLOTTING [against me, not the values I want], DEFIANT, GORMLESS, REBELLIOUS, AGGRAVATING, RIDICULOUS FUCKING CLOD OF A CALCULATOR!

Just exakt därför skall man gå samhäll och inte sträcka sig längre än matte B ;)

Underbar beskrivning av en kass räknare!
Btw, du bör nog hitta nån plot-grej nånstans för att få den att plotta; graph-läget brukar dissa en om man vill göra sånt. Vad är det för märke osv?

Det är en TI-83+. Min kompis förklarade ungefär hur man skulle göra en gång (har redan glömt hur), men nu är problemet att jag INTE KAN CONNECTA DEN TILL DATORN och skriva ut graferna så det hjälper mig ändå inte!

AAAGH!!
