Would you believe, I actually have a calculating machine similar to that shown in the picture. My dad used to use it when doing rallying (1960s) to calculate time to the next checkpoint.

Bookkeeper isn't listed on Avanquest's site anymore. Did they discontiue it? or is the link wrong? I searched their site and didn't find it.
