Turing Bombe Rebuild #leadinglinesmonday +#MetallicMonday curated by +Thomas Raschbacher #MetallicMonday #ukpcphoto (Midlands) :- If you've seen "The Imitation Game" (based on the biography Alan Turing : The Enigma by Andrew Hodges) starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Keira Knightley then you'll know all about this incredible machine. This is a shot of the (opened) back of the Turing/Welchman Bombe Machine at Bletchley Park. The Wikipedia entry for the bombe ( states that "The bombe was an electromechanical device used by British cryptologists to help decipher German Enigma-machine-encrypted secret messages during World War II." John Harper and the Bombe Rebuild Project team decided to try and rebuild one of these baffling and complex machines 60 years after all the British bombes were broken up. Incredibly, after several years of painstaking work (there was very little to go on as blueprints and various other notes had all been destroyed) a fully working Bombe machine stood once again at Bletchley Park ( Once in a while GCHQ in London send Bletchley Park an incripted message to put this rebuilt marvel through its paces and put it to the test. So far it's Bletchley Park and the Bombe Rebuild 13 to GCHQ's nil. The machine's beaten them every time!

Also got quite into Photography these days (partly due to G+ and all those awesome photos I see every day).

If you like the photos feel free to save, share them, but don't just copy them and put them in your profile without giving credit. Thanks

Unless otherwise stated my photos are under a CC-BY-NC-SA license: (In the unlikely case someone really wants to use one for commercial purposes feel free to contact me ^^)

Warning: I post most things public so they are searchable. You were warned ;)

Went there for a nice cool glass of Guinness once. Really nice decoration and good service. The price was ok. Unfortunately I did not have time to try the (vegetarian) food, but it smelled and looked very nice. War einmal auf ein kühles Glas Guinness dort. Nette Dekoration und Service. Auch der Preis war ok. Leider hatte ich keine Zeit das (vegetarische) Essen zu kosten, aber es hat sehr gut gerochen und ausgeschaut.
