|Jabez Burns,Coffee Roaster & Inventor|
A few weeks ago, in Part 2 of The Story of My Jabezes, I mentioned that Jabez Burns, the Coffee Roaster, had also invented an Addometer. At the time, I spent quite a bit of effort trying to run down something substantial about Burns' number adding device, but to no avail. Today, I was going over some previously mined information and the following article from the online History of Computers,Hardware, Software, and the Internet showed up on an internet search: Jabez Burns Addometer
In the profound words of my grandson, "Cool!"
Indeed, how "cool" is this?
