RE: Hand-held Calculator Recommended

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Off the subject a little, but in the same vein.  I actually found my old
slide rule from college a few weeks ago.  I swear I looked at it and could
not remember how to do a single thing on it.  Nothing...no recollection of
how it worked whatsoever.  

After about 5 minutes of fiddling around, I figured out multiplication, then
quickly put it back in its case and back in the box in the closet while
thinking to myself...."I took a senior year engineering final with THAT?
How'd I ever pass?"

Tell me about it. I can't bring myself to toss out my deceased HP-67.  
Or even the spare batteries I bought for it.
