Meanwhile, at the coast..

Not a pocket calculator.....

.....I rescued it from a skip when I worked on a temporary research contract in the Geology Dept at Sunderland Poly/Uni in 1989
.....they were clearing out a lab to make room for some of those new-fangled computer thingies, probably BBC Micros
.....I said they should donate it to a local musuem
.....they said the paperwork would be too much effort
.....consequently I had a helluva job, and some strange looks, lugging it home on the train that night looks almost identical to the third picture down on this webpage
.....except it's a lot dustier, and with more cat hairs has cogs and wheels, dials and sliders to fiddle with, even a gear lever makes proper mechanical noises when you turn the handles probably does no more than add and subtract's made of solid metal weighs a ton makes a great doorstop, a tornado wouldn't shift it

.....y'know there's probably an app for that now, except the doorstop bit.............
