condensed version:

its simply a very advanced switching mechanism that makes thousands and thousands of decisions per second. beyond that, you are kind of splitting hairs between the different types of computing mechanisms that exist, or have existed in the past.

in the end, its not really relevant unless you are in the chip making business.

I like computers. I've liked computers since I was 3 and I'm studying computer engineering now and will probably spend the rest of my life working with computers. But they are just not reliable. Every now and then I get asked "why is this not working?" and the answer basically boils down to "because computers suck".

I've thought about that a bit, and I think the problem is that computers are evolving too fast. I mean we've had them for less than a century after all (75 years since the Zuse Z3), and they've been switching forms every couple of decades since then. There's no time to sit down and fix what you have when everyone else is building better things than you, so they're basically in a state of "perpetual debugging".

You'll find hospital machines much more reliable than personal computers. On those you can't really prompt the user to reboot the machine if something unexpected happens.

Then again, they take a massive amount of money and time for their functionality. It's a tradeoff. You'll find engineering or software developpment to be all about tradeoffs. I'm sure there is a relevant XKCD or two. In the case of personal computers, spending that much on stability is not worth it.

Speaking of computers, I'm bullshitting around at work with templates and reflection to have a program that builds a program that builds code etc. Very surprisingly, it works, and could end up saving us a ton of time in the long run.

I've agreed with 3rdtry - the main problem with computers (in a broad sense, including things like phones and smart TVs, for example), is that technological progress is just too fast for longevity and maintainability to be a priority, or for training to be cost effective. If you know when you're designing something that it's likely to be obsolete in a couple of years, there's much less motivation to make it reliable and easy to maintain. Similarly, if you know providing/taking training in some software/hardware isn't going to be useful for more than a few years, there's much less reason to actually learn about it. And, as 3rdtry said, if your system is constantly a new design, then there's never enough time to fix the problems and make that design optimal.

This will continue to be a problem until electronics development plateaus.

Awesome awesome lessee.

Ok. Every single living thing on the planet (including you, gentle reader) has a unbroken line of ancestors that goes back two and half billion years that entails people, cavemen, monkeys, rat-things, lizards, fishies, slimy things and single cell organisms all the way back to the single primordial cell. A line which survived (often by the barest hair) multiple earthquakes, storms, rockslides, plagues, poison gas attacks, radiation and many, many nasty things with huge teeth.

You are all descendants of badasses and inherently more badass than any creature from a billion years ago or even a thousand years ago.

I had an epiphany once about this. During our lecture the teacher showed us the whole circuit diagram of a simple ALU. And I was like "So that's it? That's how addition works? The silicons just, somehow, do it?" Then once we played around with Assembly I realized everything can be done with these programs and everything else is just colors and sounds. That is pretty much satisfied the reason why I took computer science.

I don't mind, but I'm not entirely afraid to let someone know that what they've asked of me doesn't make sense. You kind of just have to be aware of the situation, who you are talking about, and the legality of what you've been asked to do.

Well, considering the Air Force used to pay me $250 just for maintaining proficiency in a foreign language, I'd say I get paid to think, even if it's just a little. ;)
