ENIAC: A computer is born (news.com)

News.com has an interesting article on the ENIAC. Read the article here. Be sure to listen to the MP3 provided at the link in the article that reads Hear ENIAC programmer Jean Bartik explain how the computer was tested. Confident programmers that were they had a "perfect program" used unit testing and break points for debugging way back then. And I've always heard that debugging back in those days could be meant quite literally.
