I knew the answer anyway, I was using Google to double check.

I wrote a program in Visual Basic (version 3!) when I was about 17 that did exactly the same thing! At the time it had my IT teachers baffled, until one of them took a sneaky look at my code. I still had to explain it to him thou.

This is a simple maths trick and a clever bit of programming. The question will always produce an answer that is a multiple of 9. (9, 18, 27 etc.) Each time you go to the symbols page it changes the symbol representing the multiples of 9 and just displays that. If you do it more than once with the same number you get a different symbol because the symbol is change for the 9 times table!

Sorry to spoil your fun but I like to find out how these things work....

:D been a while since i've seen this one (or its kind anyway) again but it is nice. Wonder how long before it gets redone again :D
