Three T-A8D4s connected via Network Interface Cards (NICs) and a wire sending each eachother random packets. The A8D4s are connected via their I/O ports to the NICs and each NIC has a unique address.

    it looks complicated so err......+1? what does it exactly do though?

    Phones are actually computers, or at least they are now.

    I like how it uses 1 wire to communicate. That way these could literally be phones, sending information. (like pressure waves in TPT simulating waves)

    This is revolutionary on TPT.

    Last I checked, 5-bit is more complex than 4-bit. But, if compact-ness is the measurement of quality, then I suppose 4-bit comes out on top. As for there being any use for networking computers, I suppose I could connect a Control Unit and NIC to a 8KB drive and use it as a data volume.

    Well, looks like you have done somethung very unique. The best I can muster is a lousy 5 bit machine. Congrats, and don't worry about the morons. They think tpt is a place for tnem to be idiots.

    And this might be the first instance of networking computers in The Powder Toy. This might easily be a revolutionary breakthrough, given that connecting multiple computers has been speculated for a long time, but I have not seen a working implementation of this before. Thank you very much for creating and sharing such a thing with this community!
