    Re: Traditional navigation by slide rule
    From: Bob Goethe

    Tony Oz made a suggestion to me, by email, that I include decimal points on the C-scale and D-scale for the numbers between 1 and 2.  It is an interesting idea, and one that I had never considered prior to his suggestion.

    I would appreciate some feedback from those of you who are slide rule users/lovers.  At present, between 1 and 2, I have smaller numbers for 1 through 9.  Would the clarity for these scales be improved if those smaller numbers from 1 through 9 had a decimal point prefixed to them?

    Thanks for your thoughts on this.

    Bob
