Anniversary of the First Computer Bug

Monday, September 15, 2003

The first computer bug was logged on September 9th, 1945, when a moth got trapped between relay points. Though the term bug had been used for some time in engineering circles, this is the first known case of a computer bug. The operators "debugged" the system, a term that is now a part of the etymology of the computer bug.
