I feel like going for a walk.
I'm not dead don't toss me out yet!
Let me join you Hinto
Some dude with eyes and fighting a fig-leaf doesn't constitute 'going for a walk'
I had a slide rule at one time too, but it was more a matter of "geek chic".
But at this age it's better to have a stock of Ensure and a good Life Policy to 'attract' chicks
702P was not just a calculator, she was a friend who taught me a lot. I was really sad when she passed away.
Always a sad day when a friend goes to the Great SUM. Today we all have, well at least us in #! World, : [Alt]+[F2]+[xcalc -rpn]. How many of us have no idea it's there?
I want one.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY Tim ... count by decades, makes me I'm 6.5 better than Head_on_a_Stick's hex which would have me at 41
OK, I'm outta here ... remember guys ... Visitor's are welcome ... and active visitors even more.
One of the best uses for a slide rule was to be able to cheat in university exams. You could write lots of stuff in pencil under the slider
I didn't see that! ... damo cheat ... never ... I don't believe it ... creative note taking yes, cheating no!
My project I just started is to try to learn c++, again. Although I have programmed in it, professionally, at least twice before, I can never hang onto it. The first few lessons have gone well.

Bruce Eckel "Thinking in C++" is excellent.
And free as well at his MindView site. I'd never make it past the first few chapters.
However: The Thinking in C CD ROM, buy it and get the book ... or better said, buy the "paper" book and get the CD.
