Who you callin "NERD"?!?! In all fairness, I no longer have the calculater watch, and would have to consult you, K, for the names of Star Trek episodes I guess it would be unfair to include defunct programing languages such as CPM basic, and Machine language.
So K, what was your score?

Almost forgot, still have a slide rule, and still remember how to use it, and... I still bet I can prove it is faster than a calculator.
