Ye Olde Computer

Back in ye olden days ( the 17thC )  a 'Computer' was a gentleman employed to do complex mathematical computation. Often there were whole rooms of these people doing stuff like plotting the course of Halleys Comet. Nowadays we have replaced these hundreds ( thousands! ) of highly trained people with small plastic boxes that make bleeping noises and are VERY ANNOYING!


  1. I almost did this but thought George would draw a muppet working an abacus!

  2. probably crashed less often back then.

    Nice drawing
