Comment Re:His first mistake was changing his lifestyle (Score 1) 842

The idea of making changes incrementally is a good one. It reminds me of the advice I heard from someone who was able to retire in his early 50s. He quickly learned that, when people he meets ask him what he does for a living, he shouldn't say "I'm retired." People get jealous, react negatively, etc. So he started telling people he's taking a sabbatical, and that's worked much better for him.

Comment Atari 800 (Score 2) 702

My Atari 800 home computer is my longest-lasting, hardest-working electronics device. It was built like a tank (the metal shielding alone weighs several pounds).

Other than that, I suppose my alarm clock. I've had it since 1988 and it just keeps going. Nothing fancy - LED display, just a clock with alarm, no radio functionality or anything like that.
