The Doye Tech Student's site has several pages connected to pc networking and
networking in general.
Some of the content of the site has not been updated since the Novell stopped
supporting the best
networking operating system ever, Novell, but
many businesses, organizations and schools are still running Novell networks so
we left the content here.
Novell now supports a flavor of Linux
as the NOS for thier products and you can read more about it here.
John Mauchly and Presper
Eckert was the first to design the computer; they are from the the University of Pennsylvania. The name of the computer
was ENIAC, which stood for Electronic Numerical Intergrator and Computer. It
filled 40 ,9 feet tall cabinets and had about 18,000 vacuum tubes with miles of
wiring this was designed for a weapon of war. It could calculate trajectories
for WWII artillery guns but because of it operating under the army secrecy it
was little known to the public only by computing circles, it was eventually
buried in history under controversy,
jealousy, and lawsuits. ENIAC, Eckert, and Mauchly were forgotten. They also
discovered the first Computer Company, but neither found fame nor fortune
because both men were poor businessmen and lousy marketers. The team that built
the first computer ate, slept, and lived with it. They ran into so many problems
from how to combine vacuum tubes together so they could count numbers without
making mistakes all the way down to how they could make supplies last. Finally
in 1946 this thing was completed<.
