I was bored yesterday so i was trying to make different 3D graphs on my calculator. I went to zoom in and it had an error. I was curious to see what it would say if i pressed goto, then my screen turned bright blue. It wasn't blackish blue it was BRIGHT blue. I immediately took the batteries out of my calculator, restored my mem with omnicalc, uninstalled and deleted that piece of ###### graphing program. Its crashed my calculator 3 times, but this is the first time my screen turned blue. Did this happen to anyone else?
BTW its an app in case you didn't know.

What did it censor? I didn't even swear. I wrote ###### (which is only 4 letters, not 6)

There are very few words that are censored.

I am thinking about uncensoring some of them too.

The words parser is not all bad.

Type c-a-l-c without the - signs to get calculator.

In a short period of time there will be no real harm to your calculator. If you fail to remove the batteries and let it stay like that for a long period of time it can cause pixels to burn out or you LCD to leak fluid.
