Slide Rule Collection Update

In addition to walking over 10,000 steps yesterday (the first time in N days, where N is too high an integer), I completed a two-day period of taking an inventory of my slide rule collection (don’t laugh; well, ok, laugh).

By culling my collection of over 450 slide rules last year, I got the number down to just 253 slide rules that I really “need” in my collection, all stored in boxes with box numbers and specimen numbers that are listed in a FilemakerPro database, thereby making my next inventory easier.

And (of course) I have yet another box of slide rules that are outside the collection and that I permit myself to play with when the spirit moves me (and I am often moved by said slide rule spirit).
