06/13/2005: Well, we don't have a tip jar....
But The Beloved Proprietor Here (that's me; check the domain name) is contemplating the purchase of a new watch. A discussion thread on one of his mailing lists is also making him a bit nostalgic for The Good Old Days before electronic calculators, when the ability to use a slide rule was a distinguishing mark of incipient geekdom (and FWIW, I was reasonably proficient at using a slipstick back in grade school).
So if anyone's thinking of showing her/his appreciation for the Pearls of Deathless Wisdom And Other Bits o'Choice Entertainment provided by This Humble Blog, I'll consider this as a suitable token of your appreciation. Email me for the shipping details.
