BBC News – Museum reunion for Colossus computer veterans

The largest gathering of veterans who operated the Colossus code-cracking computer in World War Two has been held at Bletchley Park.

The operators met at the National Museum of Computing (TNMOC) which has a replica of the pioneering machine.

It was held after publicity around Colossus’s 70th anniversary led many former operators to contact the museum.

Just cook. That is the message of the moment, the act to embrace. Just cook dinner. It is a habit as easy to form as a bad one, and more beneficial by far.

Of course, home cooking can be stressful, particularly during the week. Never mind the time spent at the stove. There is also the time spent planning, and the time spent shopping: invisible labor, more taxing than it seems. And then someone has soccer practice. Or the traffic is heavy. Someone needs to work late. Time famine grasps us all.
