Don't know if this is the right section , but it's definitely pre-altair!

From the BBC....
Code-cracking is once again being carried out at Bletchley to mark the end of the Colossus re-build project.

Going to have to spend an hour or two out one day soon! It's only about 15 miles away.

You beat me to it! I heard it on radio 4 this morning... I'd like to go to Bletchley Park one day. Speaking of which, I saw a Manchester Baby the other week, missed the demonstration though. It'd been moved out of some dusty corner of the Museum of Science and Industry and is near one of the entrances. Saw a 486 hooked up to it but apart from that it was all switched off :(
