Tax time!

Posted in Blog

My W2 arrived, so that means it’s time to break out the calculator and get to doing my taxes…

Fortunately I have one of those new-fangled electronic adding machines…

Funny aside, I’ve had one of this family of Casios on or near my desk for decades. They have huge VFD displays that are easy on the eyes, really pleasant keys, and they run on mains power which gives them a satisfyingly analog 60hz hum when plugged in.

If you’re using some fiddly LCD pocket calculator more than 2-3 times a week, seriously — do yourself a favor and drop the $30 on an old-school desktop calculator. 🙂
