fucked up how Alan Turing, Computer Daddy, would've fit in around here

apparently he wouldn't shut up about how gay he was, and mentioned it in casual conversation

in 1936 he invented a computer that, get this, can do everything any computer built since then could do. everything. yes, it can mine bitcoin. yes, it can run Doom. it could run all of Amazon's backend. just very slowly, of course.

Computer Daddy was hella gay

if u use a mechanical process to move tape left or right, read a symbol on the tape, act on that symbol, or write a symbol, then ur gay

listen i don't make the rules

if youve ever launched an app or looked at a digital watch or listened to a CD then ur using gay technology

thanks Computer Daddy

Computer Daddy Alan Turing even wrote a video game before computers had video. and before anybody had actually built a computer to play it on.

it played a basic game of chess. not very well, people good at chess could beat it once they finally built a computer to run it on. but still.

video games are gay

@loweel Which part in particular are you attempting to correct, sir?

Since you're replying to the post about video games, here's the Wikipedia article giving details about it: en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turoch

@loweel I skimmed over the page, and I don't see anything that contadicts what I posted, sir. For me to see your point, you will need to be more specific.
