I remember when I went into the aircraft instrument apprentice school. We had an entire course on how to use the slide rule. I remember buying a $25 state of the art slide rule from the local college. It could do quadratic functions and had a resolution out to 4 places. Man, those were the days. In college you could always tell the engineering students by the huge slide rules they carried strapped to their hips like giant knives. Then they started wearing those giant HP calculators. That was all before PC's. Then the college had an entire building devoted to housing one mainframe computer, in which we wrote programs, using key punch cards. Those were the days.
Yeah, but most of those are video game consoles, not computers.Atari 2600
