[Geek] The Return of Colossus

A reconstructed Colossus computer -- familiar to students of WWII cryptography -- will be cracking codes at Bletchley Park once more, as part of a Cipher Competition meant to raise publicity and funding for the new museum of computing and cryptography that Bletchley Park is to host.

A bit of a geek-squee moment for anyone interested in classic cryptography. (And a good read for anyone who isn't that familiar with how important Bletchley Park and the Colossus computers were to Allied military forces in WWII.)
