To do this. Computers were invented to make this video.
I would agree, and add…for this, and no other, reason.
Oh. Then does this mean we’ve reached the end of the interwebs? Are we done?
Can I go home now? I’m tired. My feet hurt from all the web surfing I’ve been doing for the last ten years. And the callouses on my knees are really gnarly looking….
Wow, and I thought computers were a product of the Military Industrial Complex for solving complex ballistic problems to better get the round or warhead on target? I suppose selecting sperm donors and the appropriate biological match for the target host is similar to ballistics.
Heh! Better than the State Of Oregon rickroll!
Codebreaking, actually. Alan Turing. Bletchley Park.
But you knew that.
Original computers were analog and specifically ballistic computers. Code breaking came with the precurrsors of true digital computers with electronic sorting machines tied to a simple math processor. First true programable computer built in USA and used most for figuring ballistic problems where the answers were printed in the field artillary handbooks. At the same time analog computers were used in bomb sights, Submarine torpedo computers or TDC and Naval Gun Fire Control Directors. Analog Computers continued to be used in the Navy until late in the 1970′s.
…and the ORIGINAL ballistic computers were humans working it out with logarithmic tables and pencils.
I’d class the analog machines as “calculators”, myself. Truly programmable machines I would class as “computers” started with the “bombe” at Bletchley.
I think you have to be drunk to get it.
I can’t even imagine the hours of work that went into making that 1 minute clip. Intarnets!
I believe Stephen hit it on the head. This could have been done by hand. But computers were created to do it by less talented people (such as myself). Think of all the also rans who are setting mansions thanks to computers.
Awesome… If only they had included Tony Montana yelling “Hello”…
