very sad news. Texas Instruments develops so many wonderful products.

I remember my Ti-92 back in 1996/1997.
Back then, the Ti-92 was a beast, as good as or sometimes better than software calculators on desktop PC's.
I remember hardware modding my Ti-92 in order to overclock it.

Most professors were ignorant about programmable calculators and allowed Ti-92's on exams.
I remember one professor who encouraged us to use calulators.
His exams were so long, the only way you could complete them in time was by pre-programming all forumulas into your calculator.
Anyone without a programmable calculator had no chance.

It's so strange to me. The year is 2012 and people still use 1990's calculators.
In the 1990's, you would never even think about using a 1970's or 1980's calculator.
I guess TI was way ahead of it's time.

I hope Texas succeeds with their secession bid. World's 15th largest economy could stand on it's own feet. Especially considering Texas receives $.80 on every $1.00 that is paid to the federal government. Oh, they also can balance a budget. Good luck Texas. What Americans should be in my opinion.

Our budget is not balanced and Rick Perry has drastically increased the amount of money the government consumes. Plus do you know what would be involved in an actual succession? We would need a new government, military, tax code, currency. What about the people who worked for the federal government? Would we let them live?

Succession is a fool's dream.

Yup, you're right. That letter is funny. Americans just crack me up, our masters don't even need to check our bonds to make sure they are tight, we do it for them.
