Oh 7734, just 376006 on “calculator words” if you want to go beyond 5318008 and see what other 378163771 words you could have made when you were really bored in math class. And be sure to read James’s 6078 post, but remember, it’s a joke!

Now if only James can use the motion sensor in the MacBook and MacBook Pro to determine when the Mac has been turned upside down, perhaps we’ll see this feature ported to PCalc for Mac too.
