This seems like a fine time to remind people that Ben Eater made an entire video series on building an 8-bit programmable computer from simple TTL chips (including detailed explanations of logic gates)

Best of all, it's and proof

@cypnk heh, I actually used a 8-bit computer on a FPGA today. Clock input with a button, goes as fast as you can push it ^^

@cypnk it was very fun to play around with
helps that it was pretty easy to do the assignments

@cypnk I love that series. Incredible engineering and teaching happening there.

@cypnk I did NOT know that at all. Awesome! Thank you.
