.... when you can remember what a slide rule was/is (sometimes called a Slipstick). What is worse, is they I could get advanced results out of that quicker than most people these days can turn a computer on. We used to have competitions to see who was the quickest slipsticker). I was pretty quick, but there were a couple of colleagues who were just amazing.

I have to admit to being pretty good with this in my day http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Curta_calculator

I still use my slide rule when I am doing initial engineering computaions because it's faster than a calculator or the puter for simple aritmetic and math. Unless I am using engineering software... then, I just check the results against my "feel" for what should be. I am sure, if I was in an engineering office, young engineers would look strangely at me.

You're getting old when the only time you think of doing it twice is just before you do it once. You're getting real old when you start to worry about getting through the first time. You're really over the hill when you can't remember what "it" is or why it was important.

I have actually done this only realising after I had shut the front door behind me, only with me someone was on his way to sort it out. After realising my error and knowing there was no time to let the person know I popped the keys through the letterbox to pretend the keys had slipped out of my hand on the way out. Quite quick thinking for an old un?
