Notes from the Museum

Summer Bytes winners!

Winners of Summer Bytes competitions are announced. Two maze winners, two computers of the future winners and one Date Your Heritage quiz winner. Don't miss Christmas Bytes coming sooner than you think.

Wants and Surplus

TNMOC's Archive is a treasure trove open to bona fide researchers. We're looking to fill in some gaps in publications like BYTE and PCW, and can even dispose of some surplus copies.

Bill Tutte Memorial unveiled

More than 70 years ago, Bill Tutte made a breakthrough that shortened World War II and saved countless lives. He passed away in 2002 unknown to all but a few privileged people.

Computing in 1974 from Computer Weekly

Forty years ago: a TV data news service is getting close, Birmingham Post & Mail gets online for staff, Leicester gets traffic control system, and everyone wants ICL's new range.

BBC TechTent Live at TNMOC

BBC TechTent came to broadcast live across the world at TNMOC as part of the Summer Bytes Festival. Rory Cellan-Jones presented and Chris Monk of TNMOC made an (audio) appearance.

When Orac met EDSAC

The Summer Bytes Festival springs lots of surprises and last weekend Orac, the supercomputer from the late 1970’s science fiction series Blake’s 7, met the reconstruction of EDSAC.

YRS 2014 at TNMOC

Dave Sussman reports back after YRS 2014 at TNMOC. The event was so popular that he's considering if there should be a more frequent meet-up at TNMOC.

Fantasy at Summer Bytes

Volunteer Owen has been having fun setting up the Special Effects Creation feature at Summer Bytes and has created a couple of tantalising videos.


This week a Young Rewired State group is having fun during the Summer Bytes festival at the home of Colossus developing their coding skills and mashing data in wondrous ways.

The recreation of Robinson

There's a new project at TNMOC: volunteers have begun the reconstruction of Robinson, one of the early attempts to industrialise code-breaking during World War II.
