The Origins of Spam, Unsolicited Mail not the "Meet"

Well University isn't all pointless you know, I did learn this from my networking lecturer scot.





If you didn’t know why unsolicited mail or spam mail is call spam, it’s because all computer geeks love Monty Python because it's awesome, but you could have learnt that from Wikipedia

Mind Fiz

So well I did start this blog to tell you all about what I’m doing at university..... well I guess I better put something about university then, today we had a group task, YAY don’t you just love them! Unless you are anything like me and think everyone else is incompetent, lol I joke. 

But what this has to do with computers is any one guess, but that's marketing for you...*sigh* we had to design and brand a new peppermint flavour drink.


 Well I do like to make things properly, so I went all the way to every ones favourite super store wall-mart Asda, and I made them. it’s a peppermint flavoured energy drink, so I did make it kind of relevant I also made a PowerPoint WOW.

What is a finger box

 

What is a finger box?

A finger box all though it may seem to be a relatively simple device, it is not on the contrary of being simple a finger box is more than a box with a hole in it, it is a massively complex device containing more than a thousand separate components per box, usually with nine boxes per set that makes over nine thousand separate components, but the device will work limitedly with just one box. 

Finger boxing is also known as fingering and boxing and is a massive fad among teens aged 13-18, the device in a simpler form were first invented by William John Trolington over 100 years ago in Australia.

A Finger box basically simulates a feeling, originally this was accomplished with mechanical devices in the box with some extremely cruel pranksters putting item such as glass and nails in witch would often decapitate the finger, this led to a act of parliament in 1919 by the UK banning the devices, which was quickly followed by the rest of the world. 

Although still banned the “underground market” of finger boxes saw a boom in sales during the 1980’s and was redeveloped into its current electrical module in the mid 1990’s by an unnamed Chinese worker.
The device works on the same principals as electrical prosthetic limbs, an electrical impulse is shot up the nervous system that will make the hand think that it is feeling something; anything can be simulated such as stroking a cat or shaking a hand. 

The finger box costs around £50 per box and are usually sold out within minutes they have reportedly have gone for over 200 per box on ebay.
