[modeleng] Re: Colossus back in action

Hummmm,,


All that heat from the valves and it just went to waste.  Maybe Colossus 
could have generated enough heat to boil water to run a steam engine that in 
turn turned a dynamo to make the necessary electricity to heat the valve 
elements!  Wow!  Perpetual motion at last  and people have been working on 
it without success since the middle ages.

 Chris,

 As a mechanical engineer I find it difficult to warm to computers even
 though I am told by an "early nerd" friend of mine that it was actually
 quite easy to warm to them because the heat from all those valves was
 horrific!

 Cheers,
