    Slide rules…. rule, for the lack of a better word :)

    I grew up with computers and pocket calculators around, but about a decade ago, I bought a slide rule for very little money on ebay..

    I must admit that I don’t use it very often, but every time I do, I enjoy it. You don’t just type a couple of numbers mindlessly into a machine, you have to actually engage in the calculation you’re doing, because you’re shifting commas all the time to make your calculation fit onto the scales of your slide rule.. I find that process quite refreshing and enjoyable :)
