HEADER CHALLENGE - Its all in the Computer - By Kathy.


Listen to my music this week by The Code Breakers.

Im back folks.

Bletchley Park  - HQ for breaking the codes during W.W.11.

Now lets see what Bletchley Park has inside  - all about the code breaking machines and the folk who built the machines

 Pigeon Power
My Header

 The famous Colossus

How good would YOU be??

Such a sad ending - for a very clever man.

Please go to my side bar - near my shield and visit the other HEADBANGERS and see their take on Kathy's choice - Its in the Computer.

There were some clever folks at Bletchley Park. Very nice history of their work you have shown us! Over the years I worked with a few of the early computer folks who contributed to WW II computing in the US.

Mac: Welcome back, what an interesting look at the early computing world.

THAT is a place I would have loved to visit! Thank you for showing us around :-)

I first heard of that a few weeks ago when my wife and daughter were watching The Bletchley Circle. It was amusing, because I am more interested in cryptography and sleuthing than they (my family) are.

It is heartbreaking to learn of the demise of that brilliant man. While I do hold to biblical gender standards, it is sad when correction is done without compassion. Many hurtful things have been done in the name of righteousness, and it sounds like the treatment of Mr. Turing is an example.

Welcome back, Stewart. Hope you had another wonderful trip.

Interesting post --showing some things about early computers... Sad ending though...


Adam said...

it's a shame what the UK government did to Turing

Christine said...

That's really cool. I've never heard of much of that part of history, though I've heard of the WWII codes and the Navajo code talkers.

Jackie said...

I love codes!
And homing pigeons (we used to have them...and we had tumbling pigeons, too!)
Great blog!

Totally fascinating.

A very interesting exhibition, I like so much these old historic machines!Wonderful pictures!

Rick said...

Cryptography always seemed like such an enigma to me ;>)

Very interesting, Stewart. I've read a number of books about the exploits of the code breakers - fascinating !

Welcome back.

Looks a great and interesting place to visit. Certainly a shame about Turing. He should have been celebrated for being a hero, and not treated like a criminal

a brilliant post my friend.
looks like an interesting place to visit...a must-see.
