- My CSE's obituary

God...... Here's the bad news: After months of having a CSE, I am sad (read: PIS**D OFF) that I no longer own a graphing calculator.
Last night (10/22/15) , as I was working on my new idea for a game( Piano Tiles), my dad walks in and asks me what I was doing. I said that I was programming. He said "Give it to me" and I did. Well.......... He then took it and broke it over his knee and yelled "I've had ENOUGH OF YOU AND YOUR STUPID FU**ING ADDICTION TO GOD**MN PROGRAMMING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" . I said nothing. He stomps from my room, extremely mad. So yeah..... All programs that I have been working on, like the Piano Tile game and the Missile defense game, are now at 0% completion.... And will remain that way until I can manage to leave the house. Why did he have to do this?!?!?!?!?!?!?!
FYI: I don't have a addiction to programming. It does not control my life. I know when to get off my and go to bed, or to leave for work, or to do something else.
Well... on 10/22/15, at 8:15 pm, my dear TI-84+ CSE died, destroyed by .... Well, it's obvious.
I dearly miss my CSE, and have done many things of note with it, such as:
Program Ping-Pong, Galaga, Battleship, Lighting Show, Screensaver, Frogger, and even get started on a Magic: The Gathering program. All of which are backed up, and the piano tiles game and the missile defense game are lost... but those are relatively new. I can handle those losses.
I have also done many, many math problems, used the solver, and worked with it, yelled at it, loved it, even named it Blue Zapper.
When I last saw it, the screen was shattered, or what was left of the screen was shattered. The motherboard and the CPU was broken in half, and the battery cables that connect the battery to the calculator were ripped out. The plastic casing was absolutely destroyed, and even now.... I shudder to even think about it. It's taking all of my strength just to write this without crying.
But now it's all gone. Gone...... Forever. Blue Zapper will be dearly missed.
Farewell, Blue Zapper, TI-84+ CSE that you are. I hope you have a better life in the afterlife.
