That is not logic which may eternal lie . . .

Burroughs apparently used the CTul logic family for some of its mainframes.
CTul was somewhat like ECL ( see my ECL rant ) but yet completely unlike it. It was a strange RTL-like logic with open emitter output. It was incredibly power hungry, a chip left powered up without a hurricanes' worth of cold air blasting over it could get too hot to touch. I don't believe that anybody other than Burroughs ever used this logic family.
I'm not familiar with it, though it does seem to be the dark spawn of Shub-Niggurath. Who knew that the Necronomicon contained descriptions of electronic circuits?

Here's a joke. Do you know what a Cthulu cookbook is called?

The Necronomnomnomicon.

I've done enough for one day.
