What I'd like to know about the Antikythera mechanism is 1) has anybody built a working replica of it? (I know there are replicas: do they work?) 2) how to spell it (yes, I can and did look it up, but that's not what I want: I want to know how to spell it)

Delighted to learn that the person apparently solely responsible for spreading the legend of the "ancient Chinese curse" was Austen Chamberlain. Would never have guessed.
