Basic Computer Tutorial.

We'll be referring to different parts of these and other tutorials in the coming weeks. During Monday's (9/14) lab session, you'll be investigating many of the basic parts of a computer.

On Wednesday (9/16) I'll spend a bit of time discussing this sheet I wrote a few years back comparing the speed of our modern computers to the speed of light. Don't worry about the math if you haven't reached this level yet. This is FYI only. :)
