    My neighbor across the street was a machinist on that project.

    He also worked on early radar development.

    Very interesting guy.

    DID YOU KNOW:
    ENIAC spanned nearly 17 metres and filled most of a 9-by-17 metre room. It could also perform 38 divisions and 357 multiplications in less than a second.
    ENIAC was noisy and emitted an incredible heat because it had 17,000 vacuum tubes sealed glass containers conducting electrical currents.
    Scientists at the University of Pennsylvania first invented ENIAC for the U.S. army in 1945

    Which made it very attractive to bugs who would populate the electronics and cause shorts.
    Hence the term we use today.

    My, what a classroom we have become.
