OT ? Do you wish you still had your old slide rule ?greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) Preparation Forum : One Thread
They have them for sale here
They have everything from fancy specialized rules (hundreds of dollars) down to cheap pocket ones (as low as 16 dollars!).
And yes, they do come with instructions.

Nifty site biker. I know I've got my dad's squirreled away somewhere.

Still have 3 slide rules (one is a circular one).
But ... I also have about 6 solar-only calculators (and a solar-only watch).

I went to the local Staples store and asked for a slide rule. There was NOONE working in the store that knew what I was talking about. When I was in high school, we had to learn how to use the slide rule. I wish I had that seventh grade math book and my old slide rule now.
