Navy Rear Admiral Grace Hopper was famous for explaining computer terms with an explanation so everyone could understand. After all it was the 1950's. She showed people a short, soda straw and would explain that that's how far an electricity can travel in a microsecond. People loved her. She's gone today, sadly.
The Navy was trying to run a complicated math equation one night. The algorithm would run all night long. When the operators came in the next morning, however, the computer had not finished, so they went into the airconditioned structure to find out what had happened. They found a moth between two contacts of one of the relays. One worker took a pair of tweezers and simply removed the moth who had been drawn there by the flashing lights and warmth. The moth had died, but it stopped the calclation for the night's run.
After the moth had been removed, the calculation started right up and finished a few hours later. Admiral Grace remarked to the press that they had discovered a bug in the program. That term stuck.
