I'm just looking at a bug the size of a harvest mite that I thought was on the surface of the screen but is on the inside surface walking about... Has anyone else had this?

You need to put in place a correct screen saver so it can find it's way out.

Probably where its mate is waiting to multiply:-)

Answer

That is why computer bugs are called 'bugs'. The term originated when Grace Hopper, an early computer pioneer, described the cause of a problem with an electro-mechanical computer that was malfunctioning.

A small moth had become trapped in a relay, causing it to fail. After that, anything which resulted in a software or hardware glitch was referred to as a bug.
