My new background, courtesy of Henry P. Babbage.

I was at the London Museum of Science, which has a variety of ancient computers on display, including implementations of Babbage's difference engine. Bloggers picture uploading mechanism resized this to 1024x768, but its a good picture. Click, share and enjoy. Pretty terrific museum, if you like learning :-)
