43 years ago around this time the Internet we use to communicate with
was probably made possible because of TCP/IP, or Transmission Control
Protocol/Internet Protocol created at Stanford University. Today 3
billion people are on the net but really made it possible for this
extravagant number was the microcomputer created at around the same
time – the Micral in France and 4004 processor machines in the U.S.
Our hobby supported through this web site keeps this history alive.

Happy computing.

PS  This week marks the 100th anniversary of Einstein’s Theory of
General Relativity though published in 1916 according to Wikipedia.
