On Usecalc

OK, so sev­er­al have fig­ured out that Use­Calc is in large part a spoof on us­abil­i­ty re­search.

Too bad it did­n't cause the re­sponse I wished for, which was some rea­soned us­abil­i­ty ex­pla­na­tion for why cal­cu­la­tors are done that way.

On the oth­er hand, it turns out sev­er­al peo­ple like Use­calc and have pro­ceed­ed to reim­ple­ment it in oth­er lan­guages, and with dif­fer­ent in­ter­faces.

Which is quite good, too, even if it sur­prised me a lit­tle. Now I have to think about it, too. I mean, maybe there is re­al po­ten­tial for the thing.
