Our English teacher at school, she must have been having it away with the science teacher. One day she said to us: "Write a clear ond concise way the difference between a linear and a logaramithmic potentiometer."

I'm with Bee on this one.
But Bea, hold up there amigo..... Just for the record, did nobody ever tell you that's it's considered as baaaaaaaaaaaaaaad to describe Mr. Sinclair's 4-function calculator as 'cheap'?

Hi Ripslider, well what happened? 

Most of the thread went on a nostalgia trip for those with a slide rule fetish.
