Windows 7: World’s oldest original working digital computer gets a reboot

Didn't the computer on the first manned moon mission have 32K of RAM? It was a very low amount for what it did.

Funny you said it like that. This spring while I was still in Florida me and a friend were talking about "Louise" (my G74Sx) and his XPS i5 and it was mentioned that between our two laptops we had more computing power than they used to build the first atomic bomb. As you said though even hand held calculators can claim that distinction. Amazing how far we've come in so short a time.

I tip my hat to all the pioneers in the field who have given us these wonderful machines.

That offered about 36K of word memory when entering text. A good look at how that looked can be seen at Apollo Flight Journal - The Apollo On-board Computers

The page there is for Apollo 14 and Skylab information. Since your link didn't work I found the page covering the Apollo program's Apollo Guidance Computer that sheds quite a bit light on what they had to use back then.

indianacarnie was the first computer steam powered? How many Conestoga wagons did it take to gather all the parts.
