RIP Tony Sale, the man who singlehandedly brought Colossus back to life. Arguably the first digital computer, it also brought the 2nd world war to an end at least 2 years earlier than it might have ended.
With Tommy Flowers you will never be forgotten.

Something I never wanted to add as an update. Steve Jobs of Apple has died aged 56. This man with Steve Wozniak shaped my world, words can't describe how gutted I am. Condolencies to Steve's family and friends.

Happy birthday to the Intel 4004 processor, 40 today! Also happy birthday to the room-sized computer that gave companies the ability to mass-process payrolls after initially calculating the movement of sticky buns - the Lyons Electronic Office or LEO. No I haven't got one ;)
