While in England, we stopped by Bletchley park to see, among other things, one of the first modern digital computers, the Colossus. I snagged a picture of it.

So imagine my surprise when I see a bit in the news this morning about this very computer. It’s up and running again, doing what it was originally built for, cracking German codes. Here is a picture from the article:

See that? See the similarities? I was standing right there! :)

Anyway, the work they did at Bletchley park was both important and cool. You can read more about it here and here.
