My First Literal Bug

I just had my first bug. Thank goodness it wasn't fatal to my program.

Where did bugs come from? Apparently Thomas Edison named a technical error a bug. In 1947, Grace Hopper found a moth in her computer, creating an error because it was blocking an electrical contact.

Now, in the cold of winter, a little spider has tried to make it into the warmth of my integrated circuits. Thankfully it only made it onto the keyboard. When I opened up the lid, "a bug!" It was a fatal bug, or at least a dead bug. Ms. Hopper and I are now bug mates.
