Re: Nothing wrong with sliderules
What's your point, Flocke?
A sliderule's more accurate than guestimating for fencing, fertilizer, seed, roofing, paint, roadbase, DG, working loads on beams and the like ... and I keep a circular slide rule in each of the aircraft and larger boats. Just to really make you think, I also use an abacus nearly daily. It's in the feed barn. I use it to calculate livestock feed & supplement needs. Electric calculators tend to die in a matter of weeks in that kind of environment.
Horses for courses and all that ...
