Enigma machines and the second world war

UK Snubs Support For Home of WWII Enigma

I usually don't post news and neither rumours, I prefer to keep this blog as geekly as possible but when I've read this article I was so disappointed and I've decided to report it as well, please follow other posts if you're interested in tech things.

I'm a retrocomputing maniac, I love old mainframes, computers and each piece of equipment that represents the latest technology (of the period), I also love history and when technology meets history you'll ever find a retrocomputing guy

Enigma was one of the key factors for Second World War (from my point of view), a device with some aura all around, a mix between technology and magic. There were exaggerating things around it, from films to strange stories but it's nice and happy to talk about it.

Since this device is one of my favorites I was angry after reading this article so I've decided to share with you.
