Reboot for UK's 'oldest' computer

Britain's oldest original computer, the Harwell, is being sent to the National Museum of Computing at Bletchley where it is to be restored to working order.
That's right, we have a Computer Museum!

  1. It would be interesting to see one of these old school machines in action. It's hard to really visualize and understand what's going on inside a computer and these old style machines just make it more real... you can see a vacuum warm up as it stores a number into memory.

    I can't wait to see where we are in 50 more years.
