    My professor showed me an app today called Googlizer or something or other. It's math related. For example he typed in 100! and it did 100 factorial almost instantly. I was hoping to play with it, looked on versiontracker, searched google, and found nothing. Anyone know the app i am talking about?

    You sure he just wasn't showing off googles cool calculator syntax?

    Just type "100!" into google. There's your result.

    positive it wasn't just in google, maybe it USED google as the backend, but it was a command line looking application, certainly not a web browser.

    EDIT:

    100 ! = 9.33262154e157

    This app actually gave you the full result out to the final decimal point.. no scientific notation at all.

    If it was math related, might it have been Maple or Mathematica or Matlab? Those are sort of the big three of math software packages....

    If you want to play around, this (which I have never tried) is free, available for OS X, and seems quite powerful: http://bway.net/~lewis/

    nope, it actually looked like a terminal running a command line app except it did say the title of the application at the top, not iTerm or Terminal or anything.

    Aside from this being an interesting little app (that would have come in handy for the ninebows puzzle!), I thought it was funny that the answer to Logik's question came from UnLogikal.

    Yes, I thought this was surreal. So, are you two the same person or not? :D

    EMW, btw, glad you made it home safe. Hope you enjoyed it down here in the Sunshine State. And nope, nothing about any tigers AFAIK. ;) :eek: :D

    Thanks! I love Florida - we were down in Fort Lauderdale visiting friends, then off to Islamorada for a few days. Ahhhh.

    It helped that when we got back to Chicago it was in the upper 70's all weekend, which is an April oddity.
