WORLD'S FIRST COMPUTER BUG
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST
STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST
What was the world's first computer bug?
The world's first computer bug was
just that, a bug, a moth to be exact.
In 1945 Grace Murray Hopper and her team were working
on the Harvard University Mark II Aiken Relay Calculator.
On September 09 1945 the computer started experiencing
problems and a moth was found between the points of Relay #70 in Panel F.
The moth was affixed to the computer log and they
reported that they debugged the machine, thus coining the term 'debugging'.
For the record; the term 'bug' was used by Edison to
report problems with his inventions, but it's origin may go back even farther.
