Despite enhancements in both technology (hardware) and software, in general, these facts still hold true today.

A lot of google to find the answer to this one. Finding the publication date of the article was key to finding the answer. Then a lot more googling to ensure that the timeline matched up - unless you had access to one of a few subscription sites that have the article.

This is an interesting question, but with far too many answer options.
Therefore I did not even try to solve it on my own, but used google *shameonme*

If there were 2 or 3 options and a little more significant date differences (or if I was a date-storing-machine with all historical events in my mechanical brain), I would have tried without google.

But the important point at last: Learned something new Smile
Thanks for the QOD

Google, the first port of call for all your obscure literature referencing needs :-D

Points well earned? Yes, sometimes it is better to admit you do not know something and seek counsel from someone wiser, or just better informed :-P

I originally wondered if it was by Charles Babbage or Ada Lovelace as it was appropriate even then.

Great question!

Amazing how many people said 1859... Only halfway through WWII computers were really programmable (and used for military reasons) and the word was used as such... BTW programmers were all female at that time Smile
