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.
