Sorry anon, your idea didn't work because the answer is so tiny that most calculators will not give a proper answer.

 

$${{\mathtt{0.088\: \!8}}}^{{\mathtt{60}}} = {\mathtt{0}}$$

 

Here is another idea

 

$$\\8.88^{60}*(10^{-2})^{60}\\\\
8.88^{60}*10^{-120}\\\\$$

 

From the home page calc      

$$\\8.88^{60}=8.031153870389\times 10^{56}\\\\
so\\
0.0888^{60}\\\\
=8.031153870389\times 10^{56} \times 10^{-120}\\\\
=8.031153870389\times 10^{-64}\\\\$$

Enter  '.0888'  into your calculator then push the y^x button ( the one with a 'y' as the base and the 'x' as the exponent   then enter '60' and then hit ' = '
