    Many calculators include a "random number" function.  

    Decide on the greatest error you wish to include, and then, with a bit of arithmetic, you can randomize your noiseless data.

    Example: calculator random number is from 0 to 1.0.
    Subtract 0.5 from random number to yield -0.5 to 0.5
    Multiply by 2, yielding -1.0 to 1.0
    Multiply by Greatest Error.  
    Add to noiseless data.

    In spreadsheets, you can sometimes also include the distribution of those random numbers.  The process above yields a uniform distribution (any error is equally as likely as any other).

    Dear Antoine,

    I will certainly re-do the simulations as you asked.

    Regarding the total lack of any noise in my previous example: yes, I clearly do understand this. I just could not quickly invent a way to introduce such noise. My next attempt will be a truncation of HCs to the integer arcminutes (but I not sure if this would be enough).

    So far I'm really impressed with TI-83+'s capabilities, and if a calculator is available - one should use it to its' full powers.

    Warm regards,

    It's nice Indian Summer here (60°N 30°E ), warm and quiet. :)
