Colossus misses the Christmas rush

The Cipher Challenge, run by the National Museum of Computing, was a great idea to test the rebuilt Colossus. After 14 years of rebuilding, I'd want to test the beast too.

The Cipher Challenge, run by the National Museum of Computing, was a great idea to test the rebuilt Colossus. After 14 years of rebuilding, I'd want to test the beast too.

Ironically, the challenge to break the WWII era German code was won... by a German bloke.

Now our plucky lads at Bletchley Park are raising a little bit of capital by flogging pieces of the tape used in the challenge, in limited edition envelopes, for a tenner.

Toodle-pip, chaps.
