If you are a rocketry and computer geek like me the following website will send a spark through those sleepy synapses.
The Virtual AGC — AGS — LVDC — Gemini page is dedicated the Guidance systems aboard the Apollo Moon missions.

“The purpose of this project is to provide a computer simulation of the onboard guidance computers used in the Apollo Program’s lunar missions, and to generally allow you to learn about these guidance computers.”
