Site news Why the Madness? A Personal Perspective The year was My grandmother just returned to Hungary from a visit to Canada. She brought the most amazing gift an year old geeklet could have had: One year later, my calculator expired.
This was a result of my incessant attempts to operate it, in the absence of a suitable wall wart, from all sorts of external power sources.
The poor calculator proved remarkably resilient, but 16V AC from a model train transformer eventually proved sufficient to kill it. Surprisingly, I found a service center in Budapest that repaired the unit for a modest fee. At this service center, I saw the marvel of marvels: In those days, most ordinary mortals never saw a computer except on television; here, I was holding a device that actually fit the palm of my hand, yet did everything a "real" computer was supposed to do!
I returned to this service center many times, pleading that they let me play with this beast, until they eventually told me to never come back. In the years that followed, I often visited those few Budapest stores that sold privately imported devices.
Unfortunately, owning one was out of the question: Despite my pleading, my parents flatly refused to sell the family car and satisfy my obsession. In the summer ofthings changed.
While still quite a bundle, more than the average monthly salary at the time, the amount was no longer unattainable.
I was able to save up the money from a summer job and come September, I returned to school with my very own PTK pocket calculator. Unlike the SR that I fell in love with earlier, this calculator offered no permanent storage; when you switched it off, your programs were erased.
Which is why I recorded my programs using a low-tech but reliable method: On of my best friends in class also had a calculator. Since then, I used many other programmable calculators, including the Cadillac of the day, the TIand a really strange Texas Instruments contraption, the SRA desktop calculator.
But as personal computers became commonplace, my interest in electronic calculators waned, until they became just another tool I carried in my briefcase, to be used when needed, forgotten otherwise. Sometime aroundhowever, I received an HP desktop calculator as a gift. This machine was in a sad shape, battery pack missing, exterior all dirty, but it still had its charger, and it was still functional.By Lt Daniel Furseth.
Today, I stopped caring about my fellow man. I stopped caring about my community, my neighbors, and those I serve.

Insanity, craziness, or madness is a spectrum of both group and individual behaviors characterized by certain abnormal mental or behavioral patterns. Insanity may manifest as violations of societal norms, including a person or persons becoming a danger to themselves or others, though not all such acts are considered insanity; it has been associated with the idea of contagion, as in the case of.
By Lt Daniel Furseth. Today, I stopped caring about my fellow man.
I stopped caring about my community, my neighbors, and those I serve. I stopped caring today because a once noble profession has become despised, hated, distrusted, and mostly unwanted. This interview with Terry Kupers is especially helpful and insightful.
