assbot: Online Emulation of Soviet Ternary Computer Setun / rinary
mircea_popescu: so you are actually sitting there and telling me that ternary based machines a la setun actually have a computational future, technologically speaking
asciilifeform: one could easily build 'setun' using modern Si chemistry, at negligible cost per se
asciilifeform: the fellow who built Setun was working with ferrite-based (transformer-esque) logic elements
mircea_popescu: isn't it the case that the situation summarizes as "the russki folks came up with the idea of trying out alternative logix, made the setun, proved thereby the thing is a waste of time" ?
asciilifeform: (what i actually suggested was to use 'balanced-ternary', like the russian 'Setun' machine)
