In a few minutes a computer can make a mistake so great that it would have taken many men many months to equal it.

-Unknown

Unknown=Merle Meacham

Thanks :D

TypicalExBf is referring to the attribution of "unknown" at
http://www.quotationspage.com/quotes/Unknown/31

It seems that a majority of webpages say the same thing, but a few give it to Meacham.

Any idea who Meacham is or an authoritative source saying he said it, Typical?

Whoa pardon my extreme lateness, I didn't even know this post got any replies. I tried emailing a geocity webmaster about it and even he had no idea, but made a claim to another Merle quote of "Xerox: A trademark for a photocopying device that can make rapid reproductions of human error, perfectly"

Call me crazy but maybe this is just some internet guy incognito getting fame and recognition for other peoples quotes.



P.S. Sorry again I keep up with boards as much as I used to my homeworklol
