The Code Lair 

Our Interactive Scientific Web Calculator(Bringing these highfalutin' computers back to their roots! Square and otherwise.)Yep, this calculator is capable of computing your arithmetical expressions, in high precision (8090 significant figures) if necessary. Just type in the expression that you want evaluated and let it go. Note that, as in all floating point calculations, precision decreases depending on the number of intermediate calculations that are done. So although sqrt(10^6)10^3 returns a number that is 0 to 65 decimal places, sqrt(10^10000)10^5000 returns a very large negative number, even though both numbers individually are correct to at least 40 places. Precision is increased automatically by the code in certain calculations to preserve accuracy as much as possible, but beware of such classically degenerate cases.
