    I think you mean slide rules...but you weren't introduced to them until Secondary school (or Granma school ).

    Any clip from TLOTLDR does it for me. An excellent transition into film from Sillitoe's short story. It still induces me to rebel and speak my mind.....perhaps that's why I am broke and unemployed!!!!

    ^ Got a headache just looking at that.


    Saw a comment that the Saturn V/Apollo computer had 100kb of Rom.

    That only took humans to the moon's surface and back.


    Kinda feel a bit entitled here having a 30Mb Farting Sound App on me phone.

    Not the greatest but appeals to me.

    Better to think inside the pub, than outside the box?
    I apologize if any offence was caused. unless it was intended.
    You people, you think I know feck nothing; I tell you: I know feck all
    Those who cannot change their mind, cannot change anything.
