The internet is awesome.

Remember when I wrote about the sad death of Andrew’s beloved TI-85? To my surprise, that turned out to be one of the posts that generated a lot of comments. (Seven is a lot for me, since I normally get two on a good day.) Well that post did more than generate comments, it netted Andrew replacement calculator!

It seems Arwen’s husband Bryan has moved on to bigger and better calculators since his days in Calculus III, and was willing to part with his old TI-85. I know what you – or at least Andrew – is thinking. Bigger and better calculators? Than the TI-85? No such thing!

But moved on he has, so Arwen shipped off the old calculator and Andrew, as you can see, is happy as a clam. He has promised to love it and pet it and call it George.

That picture is priceless! I'll laugh every time I think about it for days.

Bryan says he's glad the calculator is bringing Andrew joy. We haven't even missed it around here, hard as that may be for you all to believe! I'm happy that we could help out!

Aww, a happy reunion! It is so hard to adjust to a new calculator. I totally get it (though I'm a 92 devotee and now I just use Matlab for everything).

Please tell me what his shirt says. I know I won't get it, but i still have to know.

It's the t-shirt that makes that photo. In fact, I think I could probably superimpose my husband's head on that photo and the same picture is probably in an album around here somewhere. Hilarious.

I am VIRTUALLY CERTAIN that Paul has the TI-85! (Also, Paul would tell me I just misused the word "virtually.")
