It was twenty years ago when I walked into the Universityof Wisconsin-Madison bookstore and purchased my HP 12-C. Ihad had no experince with Reverse Polish Notation, except getting frustrated by it on my friend’s calculator. Yet, that day in the bookstore there was a sale,and all my engineer friends loved theirs so I decided to get one.
And it has been by my side ever since. It’s perfect size, sturdiness, silky and responsive buttons are wonderful. I get wistful when I see "running’ in the display. Regular entry on a regular calculator frustrates and angers me. Without my HP 12-C I get separation anxiety. It’s sad, but true.
So all hail the greatest calulator mankind has ever known…
