  • Thanks. I can see the slide rule listed at http://android-apk.org/apk/com.timscott.sliderule/2.3.0/alexvillas/sli de+rule/ For some reason I'm having trouble, probably cockpit trouble, in downloading or installing it to my phone. I'll keep trying. Ron McConnell [Non-text portions of this message have been removed]

  • Hi, Maynard, Yep, the online N600-ES works and looks great. That's why I wanted it on the new phone when I am away from the "big" computer. It seems to be just the downloadable/installable Android app that is unavailable in the US for now. See "Update Apr 2011: Timothy Scott..." down the page a bit. "I'm in California, which is still in the US as of this date." Have you checked today? :) Ron McC.

  • My wife and I finally joined the early 21st Century and acquired "smart" cellphones, the dumbest that we could find, and, boy, do we feel dumb. After about 3 weeks we can do most of the things that we could do on the old phones and some new things. One of the reasons that I took the plunge was reading about Timothy Scott's N600-ES rule for Android phones about 5 years ago. The link...

  • Following the lead in the thread topic, but veering toward the musical angle, musical pitch is a complex and interesting subject.

"... pitch levels could vary even within the same city..." - even today, like New York. Pitch...

  • Dustin looks like a good one. "Since it would probably be difficult to access a comic strip from 8 months previous, ..." I checked the Duncan web page, and nope, not there. Some older comic strips can be retrieved from the newspapers that carry them, like the Seattle Post-Intelligencer that carries Duncan, but the little "month" symbol doesn't work for Duncan as it does for many...

  • Hitler clearly knew and understood slide rules. I've sent this link to my old slide rule using buddies and to an Irish buddy who made his living in Germany for many years translating technical documents to and from German. I'm sure he will verify the accuracy of this translation. I also sent it to slide rule fan Dr. Richard Benson, Dean of Engineering at Virginia Tech, whom I am...

  • My Irish German-translator friend responded, " Ron, I think you should have held that one back until 1st April. Den Streifen hattest Du lieber fur den 1. April zuruckbehalten sollen." I recognize "1. April." :) Ron McConell [Non-text portions of this message have been removed]
