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.
Thank you, Hinto and Sector11!
Meanwhile...I suspect that certain OHCG members are napping. Is that snorts and snoring I hear?
Are you early birds or night owls? Do you wake up with the birds or fall asleep with them?
As you can see, I have nothing to add except that it's been a near-perfect summer in southern New England. My daily uniform consists of t-shirt, shorts, and sandals. Hail summer!
Winter here and a strange one it is - 17, 18 and 20°C for the past few days. Doubt it will last though, suppose to get cooler by the start of the week.
Winter ... yea right ... 22:26, the birds are sleeping, and it's 15° out there.
lately it's up at 09:00-ish and out to the neighbourhood 'downtown' then home again and on/off the computer all day. Will probably be up until 1 or 2 but will spend the last few hours reading ... until I can't hold my eye open
Too young to get into K&W?
Maybe too young to be a member here (Why the rush?) but not too young to be a guest
Have not see matlock in a long time ... wonder how long I'd last in K&W with bursting.
