Addendum to previous

Having got all excited about the fact that an ego-boostingly high number of you darling readers arrived at my blog yesterday, I had a wee look at the search terms. Just for shits and giggles.

Could the person who searched for “fx-9750g hack” please stand up.

Why, for the love of all that is holy, would you want to hack a calculator?

Please note: I am not taking the piss. I actually want to know.

*Ten minutes later, on return from a Google session*

No, really – overclocking the calculator.

I’m a girl geek, and proud of it. But I feel, somehow, dirty. And not in a good way.
