That's a hand held calculator. What was funny was that the computers on one Apollo mission became overloaded and had to be rebooted to lift off from the moon. Today you only have to reboot when checking your email while writing a letter and reading the forum.

If Woodworking is so much fun why isn't it called WoodFUNNING?

I've made a few videos

Some reports have suggested the data center could hold as much as 5 zetabytes, an astronomical sum equivalent to 62 billion stacked iPhone 5s. King called that number "difficult, if not impossible to conceive.”

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

I believe it. It's almost scary what they can do. I'm wondering what the next few years will come up with. Hey...the Dick Tracy watch could be a reality.
