I personally have shift-meta-letter keyboards shortcuts to start xterms at pre-selected locations. One of them, c, gives me a 40×8 xterm on the upper-right corner of the screen with a calculator. It is very convenient for my use style. It used to be bc -lq. But quite some time ago I upgraded to gp -q. It does rational functions, which is quite enough for quick access to my tastes.
