More > Jiffy: "Hello Jiffy," Babbage murmured, utterly bewildered and transfixed by the strange entity on his lap. "What were you doing in my throat?" he managed at last. It was a reasonable question, and it received a reasonable answer: "I don't know. What's a throat?" "It's what you were in just now." "Oh. I see. I was sitting in it." "Ah. Why?"

More > December 1791 – 18 October 1871) was an English polymath. A mathematician, philosopher, inventor and mechanical engineer, Babbage, along with Ada Lovelace, is best remembered for originating the concept of a programmable computer.Considered by some to be a "father of the computer", Babbage, along with Lovelace, is credited with inventing the first mechanical computer that eventually led to more complex designs.
