Olá Gileno,

Looks like you were faster than me!

Do you have one? That's the only smartwatch I would wear, weren't it so pricey.

Gerson.

Edited to fix a typo (again).

What bothers me most is their choice of verbal tense, not to mention the heresy at the end:

Quote: This was a way of entering numbers and operators that saved memory space but required some mental gymnastics as you would include operators after numbers. To get three plus four, for instance, "3 4 +" would be entered. It made for speedier calculations but was not intuitive,

Someone has to tell them RPN is still alive and is not counterintuitive.

Yes, that disturbed me, too.

However I am, for sure, of a certain age.
But... what age?
I thought I was from space age. Smile
