Yes, I'm a numbers nerd...

See, this is why I love the internet.

I have in front of me, looking terribly complicated, my dad's old slide rule. (Henceforth referred to as my slide rule, because it's been considered mine for several years now.)

Anyway, it's incredibly complicated, and doesn't come with instructions, and while I can figure out how to do simple multiplication with it, I don't actually need a slide rule to inform me that 6 times 3 is 18.

...so I decided to check out the internet, and see if there was a page of "how to use a slide rule" instructions.

There is.
Several, in fact.
Not only that, but I found a page with all these PDFs of old slide rule instruction manuals.
Including the exact instruction manual that was published, fifty years ago, for my slide rule.


How awesome is that!
