The weird thing about coming out of hypermania is some of the crazy ideas you bring out might actually work. Last time I developed a theoretical Runic computer but upon further investigation it was nothing but a different Turin machine.
This time using the TTL 555 timing chip and some clever soldering I may have the genesis of a Trinary computer. Basically a Base 3 mathematical device. At first it would be totally unhackable because all the code would need to start from scratch and I would probably hard wire the OS. But hell it may just prove useful for let’s say automated cars, anti hack built-in from the ground up. Add a layer obscurations by having a Runic interface. And of course a back door to gain control of units gone rogue. A line of code for it would look like this;
AAB CAB CCA BAC in decimal using X operand 2 2 6 6, and the ABC would be the respective first aett Rune from the 3 families of the Elder Futhark.
I’ll draw it up one night and plot the PCB. This is not Turin because it is not binary so none of Booles rules apply.
You never know I may replace the 555 with an actual mechanical clock making the device somewhat EMP proof.
