    I agree.  That's why I use a calculator like you do.  I thought from
    David Weilacher's comments that he was advocating the use of very
    few things, so I suggested a further reduction in books, but perhaps
    that is too Draconian.
    
    In my world I need a calculator and a sextant.  That is it.  The
    tables are in the calculator, the almanac is in the calculator, and
    the calculator has a clock as well.
