Re: Mean Machine

That is the most incredible name I have ever seen for a machine that calculates the mean of a set of numbers. It's stylish too. Excellent.

Re: Mean Machine

I was going to do one for the Median, but the name just wasn't right. And let's not even think about Standard Deviations.

Re: Mean Machine

The Medieval Median Medium ... Machine ... !

Anyway, I am going to do a Standard Deviation Calculator, but it is going to be boring with just numbers.

Re: Mean Machine

Make the Standard Deviation Calculator take place on a highway, that always spices things up.
