WARNING!!! IT IS WELL KNOWN THAT THE FBI HAS DEVELOPED SOPHISTICATED MALWARE AND KEYLOGGER ATTACKS THAT DEFEAT TOR!
IT IS ALSO WELL KNOWN THAT THE NSA HAS INFILTRATED A SUBSTANTIAL PORTION OF THE TOR RELAYS. UP TO 80% OF TOR USERS ARE NOT ANONYMOUS!
TOR is a way to browse the Internet without giving away your location or identity to regular web servers.

Whonix is a system that is composed of two downloadable virtual machines. One is a gateway, the other is a workstation. They separate the internet access between them, so that the workstation sends traffic through the gateway, which forwards the traffic through TOR. The separation and use of virtual machines adds greater anonymity because certain types of identification attacks track a user based on machine configuration. Use of a standard virtual machine makes this type of tracking much harder. There are other benefits to anonymity, and details can be found here:

Tails is a specialized configuration of GNU+Linux downloadable as an ISO file that can be burned to a USB thumb drive. The USB thumb drive then becomes a live, bootable copy of Tails GNU+Linux. It uses cryptographic tools to encrypt your emails and instant messaging, and you have the option to connect to the internet over TOR or I2P, to greatly enhance your internet anonymity. WARNING!!! THE NSA HAS EXPLICITLY STATED THAT THOSE THAT DOWNLOAD TAILS WILL BE PUT ON WATCH LIST!!!

HP48GX and HP48SX Emulators Link to Emu48 Emulator Version 1.57

Link to good looking skins for Emu48 Emulator

Link to download the ROM version R (latest) for the Emu48 Emulator

Instructions for installing:
1) Unpack everything into directory of your choice.
2) In windows, start cmd.exe and type:
convert gxrom-r ROM.48G
You should get a operation completed successfully message.
3) Start EMU48.EXE and navigate the menus to choose a suitable KML script (skin) for the calculator.
4) For Linux users, perform step one as stated.
4a) Start WINE Explorer and navigate to cmd.exe in the directory /windows/command.
4b) Perform step two and return here.
5) You can start the emulator by typing wine emu48.exe or create a shortcut.
6) To create a pleasing icon image, convert one of the high res images in the Emu48 directory from .bmp to .png, which Linux uses.
7) Set this .png file as the icon.
8) Add the newly created shortcut to your taskbar if desired, for quick access to your favorite calculator!
