Hello people,

Colossus is now up and running at Bletchley park in Milton Keynes (UK). It has been gradually rebuilt from old plans, by the people (who are still alive !) who originally worked on the project.
The link below is to a great site with much more info on this beast of a computer. I have seen it in action and it is well worth a look (visit on a saturday as there is much more going on at weekends.;)

Enjoy,

Had I known there was one operational in Milton Keynes, I would have wanted to see it yesterday! It wasn't on display in the museum :(
