So, ... Let me see if I have these versions correct.

Version 1: a live pilot before uploading happened.
Version 2: uploaded, checking on the previous AI.
Version 3: decided that the previous AI was not uploading fast enough, so sped it up. Oh, and then forgot about it.
Version 4: the restored soul foil from before the upload.
Version 5: the restored AI from after version 3. Now dead.
Version 6: a copy of version 5.

Did I miss anything?

That sounds about right.

The comment about the current schedule is a little unsettling...

I think Version 3 is Iafa. Like the librarian took over for the station AI.

... think we can do a "git reset --hard", and if so, which version should we go back to?

What's the point of writing the data if it can't be retrieved? Even backups might need to be retrieved at some point, that's way they're made.

Memory that can only be written to be the OS, as an append-only hardware log, that can be retrieved by investigators but not altered once written? As I understnad it, that's considered a "holy grail" by foresic investigators, and the airplane Black Box is the closest we come.

There is one type of memory that’s write only, usually found on servers but a fair number of home computers have it too.

And like the name ‘write only’, you can’t ever read from it.

/dev/null

Don’t believe it’s essential? Replace it with a regular file sometime and see how long it takes for the computer to start failing.

Been there, done that, the pyrotechnics were ... unwelcome.

Most unix systems have some form of "/dev/tty".

Things get silly with /dev/fd0

One windowing system had something like "con:ux/uy/sx/sy/title" as the name of a window that you could open, but had no way to refer to the current window except via standard output.

(upper / size for "u" and "s")
