  1. it is important to understand how a computer works. People unfamiliar with computers sometimes find it helpful to think of them as fairly goodsized, complicated things. Computers range in size from as small as a hotel ice bucket to as large as an entertainment complex like New Jersey’s Meadowlands, including the parking lot. Inside, a computer will have a short red wire hooked to a terminal at one end and to another terminal at the other end. Then there will be a blue wire also hooked to terminals at either end, and then a green wire, and then a yellow wire, and then an orange wire, then a pink wire, and so on.
