The Kirsch postulate

2010/03/01

In “An undetected error, Russell A. Kirsch states “the Kirsch postulate”:

All computers are always, in some sense, “broken.”

How he reached to that assertion is an interesting story that includes moving the SEAC, a logic (wiring) error found out during the move and a lot of debugging that really missed the error.
