I'd like to wish a belated Happy Birthday to Alan Turing. Yesterday would have been his 96th birthday. As one of the fathers of the modern computer, you have him to thank for the fact that you can read this. As one of the unsung heroes of World War II it is also quite possible that you have him to thank for the fact that you aren't reading this in German as well.
