Comment CRC (Score 1) 143

Forty years later, I still have my beloved CRC math handbook. Offered it to my son when he followed me into physics, but he was using wikipedia for derivatives and integrals. I still like browsing databooks, which were like baseball card collections back in the day. They were often like unobtainium, but - I made time for a TI factory rep, and he sent me everything they had. Likewise, I returned a woman's call at Motorola, and she was so happy I received two large boxes a couple days later. Doesn't hurt to be nice once in a while.
