Happy World Tester's Day Again!

I have been religiously celebrating this day for the fifth year now. 
If you have missed my previous posts, here is the trivia:

On September, 9 1945 the scientists of the Harvard University while testing the computer Mark II Aiken Relay Calculator had found a moth which got stuck between the contacts of the electromechanical relay. 

The work they performed required some description, and the word had been found – «debugging» (literally: disposal of an insect) – and now it is used to describe the process of identifying and eliminating bugs which cause a computer to malfunction. The removed insect was pasted into the computer log with the entry: “First actual case of bug being found”, and was then transferred to the computer museum.



Happy World Tester's Day again!
