The photo shows the paperwork relating to the world's very first computer bug in 1945.

Really interesting.

There was me thinking everyone actually knew the very first computer bug was actually a bug in the system and they had to fish it out..

When I used to fix things for schools, was once given an overhead projector to fix that kept blowing bulbs.

When I opened it up there was a dead mouse wedged in the cooling fan, stopping it's rotation.

Then there was the doggy wee-wee in a VCR and lastly - a bug! Cockroaches in a cassette deck.

These were rare occasions but I did wonder about some of those London schools.

A few years back I bought an old Playstation 1 from a friend. Sometimes the disks would skip,and sometimes not spin at all. So I opened it up and the inside was caked in cockroach eggs and dead cockroaches. Needless to say I have never stepped foot in said friends house since then
