(j3.2006) Retro cool to go with your Fortran compiler
Wed Dec 15 04:42:38 EST 2010
I still have my 1950s slide rule. It was much used when I was an undergrad but then I found first a
marchant desk calculator and then a computer called CIRAC (32 instructions, 16 16bit Williams tube
registers, 1024 16bit word mercury delay line memory, 2millisecond cycle time) and the slide rule
passed into the back of the cupboard. I actually solved a PDE on the computer before moving on to a
IBM 1620 with Fortran. Nostalgia!
