Hood scripset: Quoted I give you increased autonomy in Burma, unrest in Iraq, rebuilt Lancaster bombers, talks in Paris, a bridge over the Channel and yet the computer items stirs up the most interest! :D Merely the place for comment. In character, General Gehlen and Source Merlin will be very interested in the Iraqi voting (NB - not entirely certain who these 'Independents' are - item for investigation), and Herr Dehler awaits a summary from his French counterpart (or from Prince von Thurn and ...

British Empire News 1948

Quoted from "Rooijen10" Looking quickly at the wiki page of Manchester Small-Scale Experimental Machine, I think the difference is that the SSEM uses a computer program it has in its memory while the Z3 makes use of an external control program stored on a tape which tells it what to do. Maybe it should be "first working stored computer program"? KBM has been marketing the Z4 and its derivatives for several years now, No doubt the next generation of KBM equipment will incorporate Transitron-tech...

British Empire News 1948

Quoted from "Rooijen10" Quoted from "BruceDuncan" Speaking out of character... Herr Zuse and KBM have been manufacturing and marketing computer equipment for several years now, including exports as far away as Chile. Isn't the British news about a computer program and the German news about a electromechanical computing machine? Well, it's rather hard to run a computer without a program. Given the development of the Zuse line of computers since its initial introduction, I would say that hurdle h...

Sifting out the truth from the chaff often reduced such authorities to tears or drove them to the local cantina. But this much was true – more of the swift motor launches had arrived to lend greater mobility to the Peruvian...
