<div>That issue has to be solved after Silktorrent as a software project is
complete.&nbsp;</div>

<h1>Fundamental Requirements for Trade</h1>

<div>The thing to keep in mind with that project is that if one were to create
a simple, plain, screw in stead of a computer system, then one would probably
fail to do it without depending on others, without trading, because metal for
the screw either has to come from something recycled or has to be bought from
somebody else, unless one starts to think, how to mine iron ore and process it,
which is inaccessibly huge task and requires huge investments to mining
equipment or travelling. Therefore the <b>production of custom hardware depends
on free movement of physical goods</b>, which can be effectively limited, as
the Soviet Union era demonstrated. The 2. World War and Soviet Union era also
demonstrated that it is possible to hide/store equipment, weapons, books,
blue-black-white flags to areas, that are not bombed to the ground. It is a
FACT that by mere chance some of those items, including functional firearms,
survived even while being stored at people's homes. Therefore before starting
to develop any doomsday-custom-hardware, <b>"warm summers of open trade-routes"
must be used for storing electronic equipment for surviving "foodless frozen
winters of closed trade-routes"</b>. Electronic equipment has to be literally
stored in refrigerators to slow down the diffusion within the components and at
some point they have to be replaced with new batches, both, for technical
upgrade reasons and for replacing probably "more diffused" components with
"less diffused" components. To do that economically the old equipment must be
usable with modern software, which means that the new software has to be very
efficient to be able to run on the old hardware. The first candidates for
storing are various Raspberry Pi like computers.<br>

<div>After the storage part has been solved, <b>the next project is long
distance drones</b> that are capable of flying undetected by any military
equipment. The cargo of those drones is small electronic equipment, microchips,
money. The money transfer is necessary even during peace time, because the
Supermafia always gets the majority of votes from slackers and otherwise
parasites, who do not want to develop their own business and just jell that
"the Government" should rob the hardworking people and redistribute
considerable percentage of the robbed assets to the slackers. Unfortunately the
top executives of the banks are psychopathic poodles, who do not fight for the
rights of banks to keep their client's account details secret, nor do they do
hardly anything to make it possible to use the services of the banks for online
trade without some absolute nonsense legal burdens. The 2016 banking sector in
Europe is just plain disgusting. Crypto-currency is often times useless,
because it can not be exchanged for the currency that is used locally for
paying for basic living expenses like electricity, food, utilities. In the case
of money the drones should include a money burning equipment to be able to burn
the money and dump the un-burnable bits prior capture by the Supermafia. To
minimize losses at transportation, money can be transferred in parts. The
Supermafia will, obviously, "ban"<i>(a term of
<a href="https://youtu.be/BBoAOIosEd0?t=2m35s">newspeak</a>)</i> &nbsp;those
drones, just like they have "banned" barrels that burn gunpowder. To avoid
causing material harm to the airline industry and to avoid endangering the
lives of airline passengers the drones have to fly below the heights that
passenger airliners use. They must also avoid hitting any ships and sales of
sales boats.</div>

<h1>Multi-CPU-machines from Microcontrollers or Cheap CPLD-s and FPGA-s</h1>

<div>Each MCU runs a virtual machine that simulates a CPU-core or some other
block of a CPU. The simulated multi-core-CPU has also memory management
functionality. Pascal programs are compiled for running on the simulated CPU.</div>

<h1>Custom Microchips</h1>

<div>What is needed is devices for creating individual prototype electronics
chips. Scanning UV-beam based "masking" technology has been used in industry
laboratories for decades for creating prototypes. Essentially, probably the
initial bill of material contains: UV-LED, piezoelectric components from some
piezoelectric microphones for precision-movement of the beam, some passive
sound barrier (The University of Tartu Institute of Physics cellar room for
using the various atomic microscopes is a source of inspiration), may be,
later, some active sound barrier.&nbsp;<br>
