The dinosaur

The calculator I use in class is my trusty TI-82. Yep, the one I bought in high school for pre-calc, in the late 1990's. Actually, it's bloguser's; mine needs the button battery replaced. The screen plastic fell off some time in September, but it works just fine!. Absolutely fine. My darlings came up with a name for it, having made fun of the old gray lady, compared to their shiny yellow, blue, white, pink, you name it, slick and slim TI-85s and such. "What is that, a TI-1?" they asked.

Oh, and my car reached exactly 100,000 miles as I pulled into the driveway. I wonder which one I'll have to get rid of first.

there were TI-85s back in those days already. I had one! I still have it. It still works :). It's black. You are more than welcome to borrow it.

Thanks but no thanks! I tend to carry loyalty through to inanimate objects, and am partial to my TI-1.
