If youre reading this from your personal computer, consider yourself pretty damned lucky to have easy access to such badass technology. Once upon a time, the only computers in existence were machines like the World War II-era ENIAC (Electronic Numerical Integrator and Computer) and the Cray-1 supercomputer that werent exactly available for purchase at the neighborhood Best Buy.
