OK, this is probably my earliest.  The brochure for the very first commercial computer - the UNIVAC: 1948!  Designed by the ENIAC designers.

I love the claim: "Electrons work faster than ever in the newly designed UNIVAC system..."

Thanks for putting this up! The cover is apparently showing the BINAC (or what's described as the "elementary computer" in the Manual of Operations, 1954)?

Hi, just joined this community.  I'm a big fan of Computer History.  I especially love old documents - manuals, articles, books, advertisements, etc.  Here is my latest (and possibly among my earliest) finds - written in 1949!

Incidentally if someone knows where I can find even earlier stuff I'm looking for descriptions of universal machines (a.k.a. Turing machines) from before the existence of electronic digital computers. I know that Alan Turing was developing ideas for the universal machine in the 30s.  I'm interested in finding articles and/or papers from that time period when he was describing this amazingly visionary concept.

Stephen, I loved your review for Gravity ( https://play.google.com/store/movies/details?id=3nsimcpL5Ho ). I just finished it and liked it a lot. I'm going to watch it again keeping in mind your ideas.

I had a similar feeling to The Thin Red Line. In my initial viewing I hated it before I understood it not as a "war movie" per se (like Gravity isn't a "space" movie) but rather it is a philosophical treatise poetically told. World War II was simply the canvas that profound ideas were painted on.

I think this is the same idea you had with Gravity with "space" as the canvas.

We are addicted to war economically. We need to abstain so as to break our addiction by breaking the MIC.

Once we get surplus material sorted out that will also mitigate the Rambo law enforcement agencies getting tanks, grenades and bouncy castles. (Yes a police department actually got a bouncy castle from the military. We are decades past ridiculous at this point.)

Edit: from 4 to 1 stars. STUNNINGLY DISRESPECTFUL. I've never been treated so rudely at a motel before. Isn't hospitality supposed to be central to this kind of business? If you are trying to find a place to stay please do not give your business to a place that is ungrateful for your business and that is just as happy to treat you with contempt. I'd ask you to instead consider choosing from the myriad of comparable competitors that are respectful, polite and glad to have your business. I don't want to publicly call anyone out by name but I do want to mention a couple of people that were great during our stay and who gave us our initial positive impression. John and Paul are both a credit to the Unicorn and and couldn't be friendlier. If the owner or manager reads this and would like to know the details of our mistreatment after being a guest for three months I'd be happy to share (we left a few days after the incident). Contact me on Google+ or however you can. I initially intended to get in touch with management right away but then it occurred to me that if these people had the gall to be so boldly rude then its likely that management doesn't care. Original review: Four stars. This place is for weekly stays on a budget. It's extremely basic but it is clean and there is good wi-fi. I wouldn't recommend it for families but for adults or couples needing an extended stay on a budget it might be a good choice.

For what it is its very good. I was arguing with my gf that it should be four stars in the context of what it is (a 24 hour diner), not in the context of fine dining restaurants. She suggested three stars. Food is good. Their thick cut bacon is great (even as i prefer thin bacons). Yummy: Eggs Benedict, BLT, various pies, beer battered fries, Belgian waffle, et. al. Avoid the blueberries on the pancakes. Staff is friendly yet savvy at keeping the local meth heads at bay at 3 a.m. who are themselves generally more pitiful then menacing. They are at worst annoying once they learn you'll help them out with a few bucks or a smoke. If you want to mitigate this problem then support treatment and access to mental healthcare (which works) over law enforcement (which not only fails but is counterproductive as it permanently gimps the socioeconomic prospects of these people). But I digress.
