Actually, with the exception of the Jacquard loom (which I would argue is
controlled by a sequencer and not a computer, since it doesn't have any
read/write storage for variables or conditional branching', I've found
the other answers to be interesting and sensible. Certianly things have
been menitoned that i'd not really heard of before.
And yes, I tend to be pedantic, both in e-mail and face-to-face. Before
trying to answer a question (or solve a problem, or whatever), I like to
be sure I know exactly what is being asked.
