it's more fun to compute: vintage show slated

British composer Matthew Applegate, a.k.a. Pixelh8, will stage an all-electronic performance using vintage hardware from the U.K.'s National Museum of Computing March 20 and 21 in Bletchley Park, the World War II-era British decoding facility also known as Station X.

More than 20 processors will be used, including the Colossus Mark II, the 1960s-era Elliot 803, and the '80s-era BBC Micro. The event is called Obsolete? Tix and info.
