OK, slightly OT...
Rear Admiral Grace ("Amazing") Hopper PhD was given unto us in 1906. She
was famous for coining the term "debugging", whereby a moth was removed
from a relay contact in a *real* computer[*].
However, she must be condemned for giving us COBOL; yes, I know that vile
language, but I carefully leave it off my CV, as it seemed to be designed
for suits (Business Studies of course, but nothing technical) to spy upon
Defined, of course, where you could open a door and step inside it; I
actually did that once.
