Where in Time is Carmen Sandiego?[]

In Episode 39, the Time Pilots meet the young Lady Ada Byron, the future Countess of Lovelace, who is currently working for the man who has just conceived of the Analytical Engine. Upon realizing that this Analytical Engine is the first computer, Kevin is delighted and hands a confused Ada some modern-day (i.e. 1990s) computer equipment. Lady Ada's clues lead the Time Pilots to the 1830s, specifically 1833.
