First printer ever designed has finally been built. : LUSENET : TB2K spinoff uncensored : One Thread

Mr Babbage was quite an engineer.

I can copy the text but can't get the pictures so.....

Babbage was a flat-out genius. He was assisted hugely by his very good friend, Ada (Lovelace?), Lord Byron's daughter. The Ada programming language was named after her.

flora, picking nits here, avert your sensitive eyes:

The title of this thread should read the first CALCULATOR if you follow the link. Though, wouldn't the abacus count as a calculator?...but I digress... {suprising - I know...}

The first printing press that I know of was a Korean job which used clay type, not the infamous Guttenburg.

Resume now to your regular programing...

Hi Flora-- As I read the article, the calculating machine was built in 1991. The PRINTER was just finished in 2000. This is not a printing press. It is the printer for a calculator or computer.

Gad, sign me up for Evelyn Wood. My speed scanning leaves something to be desired! I do love Byron, though...
