A REAL Classic Computer

difference-engine The London Science Museum has completed work on Babbage’s Difference Engine No. 2, 120 years after the death of it’s inventor, Charles Babbage. This Victorian mechanical computer was never completed during it’s designer’s lifetime due to many factors including cost, manufacturing difficulties and the fact that Charles Babbage had a bad attitude that tended to piss off investors.

My question is: Does it play Quake?
