Sorry, to elaborate, nothing remotely unusual was going on.
Yeah, the computer in question was connected with Arcemde's lab, and it was a gift to one of the Ceasers. (Spelling) It was thought that casting such small parts needed didn't happen until after DaVinci (One of his students was credited with coming up with the way small metal parts were cast, I watched a special on guns once, DiVinci started research on how to make a "self firing" mechinism.(I forgot the term used) But it wasn't possible to make piece that small with the state technology was at the time. But during the time of the "dark ages" a lot of progress was lost, because of various factors. (Fear, supersition, and the Catholic church, store houses of knowledge being ransacked by invaders to name a few)
Plus people just assume that ancient civilizations were populated by simpltons. Food for thought the major branches of mathematics Calculus, Geometry, Trignometry, were "founded" by these ancient civilizations, and are virually unchanged from the state they where in before the Dark Ages. But I'm babling so I will stop.
