Thank you for sharing this, Al. Rich Alderson and I
had the privilege and pleasure of meeting Tony last year at The National Museum of
Computing. As he showed us the Colossus, he bounced around like a kid showing off his
newest toys to a close friend. It is hard to believe that such a vital spirit is no
longer with us.
I was unable to join Rich and Ian then (I was stuck in Canada due to ash) but visited the
NMoC in November last year. I didn't get to meet Tony but saw him taking a 'power
nap' in his office next to Colossus!
I only hope I can have such commitment when I'm 80!
