  • Happy Bug Day

    It's a big day in test history.

    Today, in 1947, the first actual computer bug was discovered.

    While searching for the cause of a hardware fault, a moth was found trapped between points at Relay # 70, Panel F, of the Mark II Aiken Relay Calculator at Harvard.

    The operators affixed the moth to the computer log, with the entry: "First actual case of bug being found." The logbook, and the moth, are now in the Smithsonian.

    In other words, the bug never actually went away--it was just documented!
    The cat spread its wings and flew high into the air, hovering to keep pace with them as they moved cautiously toward the city. Then, as they climbed over the rubble of what had once been a gateway and began to make their way through piles of weed-grown masonry, the cat flew to the squat building with the yellow dome upon its roof. It flew twice around the dome and then came back to settle on Jhary's shoulder. - The King of the Swords
