23rd Psalm.

The Lord is my programmer,
I shall not crash.
He installed His software on my heart’s hard disk,
His interface is user friendly,
His mouse guides me to the right choices,
In my directory.
ComputerFirewallAndVirus.gif Though I scroll through the world wide web of life,
I will fear no virus,
For He is my back-up,
His password protects me.
He makes a menu table before me,
In the presence of my hackers,
My RAM is plentiful.
Surely upgrades and downloads will follow me
all the days of my life,
And I will be merged with His file forever.

The abacus was invented by the Chinese around 2600B.C. also referred to as a counting frame. It is a mechanical device that is used to assist a person in performing mathematical calculations and counting and therefore could also be referred to as being the first form of computer.

The computer as we know it today had its beginning with a 19th century English mathematics professor name Charles Babbage who designed the first programmable device. The computer was launched in 1943, that is more than century after Babbage designed the Analytical Engine and it was this design that the basic framework of the computers of today are based on. Babbage dropped his idea after he couldn’t raise capital for it. In 1998, the Science Museum in London, U.K., built a working replica of the Babbage machine, using the materials and work methods available at Babbage’s time. It worked just as Babbage had intended.

Generally speaking, computers can be classified into three generations. Each generation lasted for a certain period of time,and each gave us either a new and improved computer or an improvement to the existing computer.

First Generation: 1937 – 1946.

In 1937 the first electronic digital computer was built by Dr. John V. Atanasoff and Clifford Berry & was called the Atanasoff-Berry Computer (ABC).
In 1943 an electronic computer name the Colossus was built for the military.
In 1946 came the first general purpose digital computer called E.N.I.A.C. (Electronic Numerical Integrator and Computer) was built by John W. Mauchly and J. Presper Eckert. This computer weighed around 30 tons and had 18,000 vacuum tubes which was used for processing. Storage of all those vacuum tubes and the machinery required to keep it cool took up over 167 square meters (1,800 square feet) of floor space. It is said that the first time this computer was turned on the lights dimmmed in sections of Philadelphia. This generation of computers could only perform single task because they had no operating system. To see some pictures Click Here.

Second Generation: 1947 – 1962.

These computers used transistors instead of vacuum tubes which were more reliable.
In 1951 the first computer for commercial use was introduced to the public; the Universal Automatic Computer (UNIVAC 1) .
In 1953 the International Business Machine (IBM) 650 and 700 series computers made their mark in the computer world. During this generation of computers over 100 computer programming languages were developed, computers had memory and operating systems. Storage media such as tape and disk were in use also were printers for output.

Third generation: 1963 to Present.


With the invention of integrated circuit boards came the third generation of computers making them smaller, more powerful & reliable with the ability to run many different programs at the same time. In1980 Microsoft introduced the Disk Operating System (MS-Dos). In 1981 IBM launched the personal computer (PC) for home and office use. In 1984 Apple gave us the Macintosh computer with its icon driven interface and the 90’s gave us Windows operating system.

As a result of the various improvements to the development of the computer we have seen the computer being used in all areas of life e.g. phones, machinery, medicine. Computers are a very useful tool that will continue to go through new developments in the future.
