So do I. Several of them, in fact -- basically one for each desktop where I am likely to want to do some arithmetic. I could just use one bc -l window and "sticky" it so that it appears in all desktops, but I've found that the calculations I do in a given desktop depend on which browser games I've got going in that particular desktop. So I don't share a single calculator session with them all.
