    All:

    I love history and many of you may have seen this already. However, it’s amazing that a computing device (much like a watch) could have been engineered and fabricated so many millennia ago.

    Tom, thanks for posting that! I’ve been absolutely fascinated by that mechanism for years now, ever since I found out about it. I recently read where some treasure hunters are going to dredge the area near where it was found, in search of more clues to its purpose.

    Thanks for posting Tom, I was in Athens when the exhibition was running & I had planned to go and see it, but as Murphy would have it, it was closed for two days when I was there :?

    Looking at the video, I think I may have some large English fusee hands that will fit that square post 😆
