Hi Jeremiah,

so, if I don't get it wrong, every skilled engineer will be able to
build an "almost analogic" (zero bit of software preloaded) computing
machine ad use stage0/mes [1] as the "metre" [2] to calibrate all other
computing machines (thanks to reproducible builds)?

the first bit of code have to be "manually" introduced in the machine,
for the lazyer like me, what about a punched card? :-)

I didn't know about Nexus Intruder attacks: could you please give me
some links to the relevant bibliography?

so, having the scientific proof that binary conforms to source, there
will be noo need to trust (the untrastable)

thank you!


[2] I still have not fully understood the relationship between stage0
and mes
