This is a very great achievement. As frequent visitors @ BP we already have seen parts of it, all collected and restored, amazing. This museum is very interesting for a visit, so if you are in the neighborhood of London, please drive 40 miles up and visit BP.

I'll certainly do that! I'm going to be in London next February and BP is one of my major places to go. What would be nice is if visitors could bring their own paper tapes and run programs on it! - Jonny

Just curious - how many Hz does it run at and how many bits wide are the datapaths, what storage does it have. Amazing how far we have come in half a century.

Incredible that this computer can survive more than half a century and 2 of My new dell desktops die within a year of unboxing.
