Re: Naturally.

By their websites shall ye know them.

If you really want to indulge Ludd's ghost - replace that old scientific calculator with a slide rule. Esp. in this day and age when we are being told how ruinous our electricity is, such a device is the ultimate in 'environmentally friendly technology', needing no mains power or toxic heavy-metal-bearing batteries and depending on the model, very resistant to dropping, hot coffee, sticky-bun contents and other vicissitudes of life imposed on calculating devices by all those studying trig, logs and other related aspects of the mathematician's black art.
