Slip AND slide.
My vintage Dietzgen, made of finest bamboo, steel, and dry lubricant, hangs
framed behind glass on the wall in my home office. There, after yielding
many a useful 3 sig-fig result in my college and early work career, it hangs
as a proud reminder of past conquests. My children, on the other hand, refer
to it as a relic of the past - much like the Beetles, the Stones, and Dad.
Dad (the bill payer)
