    Yes, the slide rule required you to think. You need to understand what "order of magnitude" meant. But slide rules are no longer made - anywhere in the world.

    I used them too. Slide rules were for quick estimates, although I did once use a tubular spiral slide rule which was as accurate as a log table.

    Joey, Joey, Joey . . . That's what being an Insider is all about! Two steps forward and three backward!

    Sheesh, I thunk you knew that! Group Hug all around.

    You shoulda seen what I had to go through to get Build 16215 onto my old HP Laptop that came with Vista! Now that was a trip, to say the least!
