    A great article, I remember when Dayton Daily News originally ran it.

    Enjoyed it until about part 5 when they asked to register with them. Screw that.

    I found out you can exit the website and return to continue reading a couple more parts until it brings up the registry page again. Then repeat. Who knows, maybe NSA is so paranoid it keeps track of who's interested.

    Fascinating stuff - I'd love to know more about the technical details of the NCR machine since it seems to work in a completely different manner to the Turing Bombe

    "This site is dedicated to Margaret Davies who, during the war, worked on a lathe at BTM Letchworth making components for the Bombes."
