CPU
In a PC, the central processing unit (CPU) is the primary control device for the entire computer system. The CPU is technically a set of components that manages all the activities and does much of the "heavy lifting" in a computer system. The CPU interfaces, or is connected, to all of the components such as memory, storage, and input/output (I/O) though communications channels called busses. The CPU performs a number of individual or discrete functions that must work in harmony in order for the system to function. Additionally, the CPU is responsible for managing the activities of the entire system. The CPU takes direction from internal commands that are stored in the CPU as well as external commands that come from the operating system and other programs. It is important to nore that these functions occur in all CPUs regardless of manufacturer

ALU
The arithmetic logic unit (ALU) is responsible for all logical and mathematical operations in the system. The ALU receives instructions from the control unit. The ALU can take information from memory, perform computations and comparisons, and then store the results in memory locations as directed by the control unit. An additional type of ALU, called a floating point unit (FPU) or coprocessor, which performs specialized functions such as divisin and large decimal number operations, is frequently used. Most modern microprocessors include an FPU processor as part of the microprocessor. The ALU and control unit communicate with each other and perform operations in memory locations called registers. A register is a location that is internal to the microprocessor that can be used as a scartch pad for calculations. There are two types of registers used in modern systems: dedicated registers and general purpose registers. Dedicated registers are usually used for specfic functions such as maintaining status or system controlled counting operations. General purpose registers are used for multiple purposes, typically when mathematical and comparison operations occur.
When a system malfunctions, as in the case of a Blue Screen of Death, the monitor will usually display a message and multiple numbers. There numbers are the contents of the register and other key memory locations. This information is usually not overly useful for computer technician, but it can provide a great deal of information to developer and technical support professinals as to the nature of the failure. It is a good idea to capture that information before you contact customer support.

A chemical paint remover commonly used by the military that almost instantly cracks and dissolves paint. It is commonly used on welds that require NDI "Non Destructive Inspection". Since sanding can alter / hide cracks a chemical stripper is needed. It is called baby shit because it smells horrible and looks like a brown sludgy liquid similar to baby shit. Currently California outlawed baby shit making it harder for the military service members to do their job. A weaker less effective chemical stripper was made to take its place however it is pink and not as strong. Baby shit can burn / slowly eat away your skin. And is not rinsed off metal after stripping it can cause Hydrogen embrittlement. Baby shit gets the job done in a timely fashion.
Hey PFC Shoemaker put some baby shit on those welds so we can take it over NDI. Make sure you have your eye, respiratory, and hand protection on or else the AMO will yell at you like your murdered some one.

The control unit is primarily responsible for directing all the activities of the computer. It also manages interactions between the other components in the computer system. In addition, the control unit contains both hardwired instructions (called microcode or microprograms) to perform operations. An example of an instruction might be the command to fetch information from memory. In older systems, the control unit would be a large number of integrated circuits on a circuit card. On a microprocessor-based system, the control unit is part of the microprocessor.
I the control unit determines when the user's commands will be proccessed.
