Panorama – The Colossus Computer

Today I was able to make a quick visit to the National Computer Museum at Bletchley Park, an absolute must for any geek in the UK. To see Colossus running, to hear it and smell the worlds first programmable computer running is an amazing experience.

There is a great story behind the reconstruction of this machine, which is told at the brilliant Tony Sale’s website.
