From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (15Feb98) [foldoc]:
      {Arithmetic and Logic Unit}

From Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary [easton]:
      for grinding corn, mentioned as used in the time of Abraham
      (Gen. 18:6). That used by the Hebrews consisted of two circular
      stones, each 2 feet in diameter and half a foot thick, the lower
      of which was called the "nether millstone" (Job 41:24) and the
      upper the "rider." The upper stone was turned round by a stick
      fixed in it as a handle. There were then no public mills, and
      thus each family required to be provided with a hand-mill. The
      corn was ground daily, generally by the women of the house (Isa.
      47:1, 2; Matt. 24:41). It was with the upper stone of a
      hand-mill that "a certain woman" at Thebez broke Abimelech's
      skull (Judg. 9:53, "a piece of a millstone;" literally, "a
      millstone rider", i.e., the "runner," the stone which revolves.
      Comp. 2 Sam. 11:21). Millstones could not be pledged (Deut.
      24:6), as they were necessary in every family.
