First Computer Bug: 9 September 1945

65 years ago today, the first computer bug was dicovered – a deceased moth found between two relay points of the Mark II Aiken Relay Calculator then being tested at Harvard University. This computer phenomenon was reportedly named by LT (later RADM) Grace Murray Hopper, at that time assigned to the testing project.


    Sixty five years later, and they are still full of bugs. If only ORKIN could do something.
