The National Museum of Computing

The National Museum of Computing, co-located within Bletchley Park, has just launched its updated website. This is the home of the rebuild of Colossus, the World War II code-breaking computer.

Apprently, the museum will be featured on the BBC ‘The One Show’ next Monday (the 2nd Feb, presumably).

Well worth a visit if you are in the area.

Monopoly with real money

How about this for a cracking idea?  Apparently they built some monopoly sets for sending to prisoners of war in the second World War that contained real money, silk maps and files and things.  These were sent as part of red cross packages to POWs in Germany.
