Learn to use one anyway.  I keep an abacus on a shelf beside my computer to do
binary arithmetic with.  It's great for binary stuff -- I can do that sort of
calculation faster on my abacus than I can do them on paper or by trying to
figure them out on the computer.  Plus I can visualize the working of the
operations and see if I'm going off of the rails.

I used to have a tiny little 10-wire abacus that came with a "how to use an
abacus" book, but now I have a real nice 13-wire Chinese abacus and I wouldn't
give it up.
