If you are interested in the history and people involved in the development of early stored-program computers, "Turing's Cathedral" by George Dyson is a good read.

Although I am a generation behind these early developments, I saw my share of paper tape, punched cards, and hand coded and toggled in machine language. Did you ever drop the center out of a large roll of paper tape? The "good ole days".

    [Veltro]: I don't understand. I keep getting "your connection is not secure" on https://perlmonks. org. The behaviour is totally random. Then it is insecure and then it is secure again...
