That's because the repeat time for the horrendously slow B is several dozen ticks; coupled with the massive spark the replicator produces you can't use it to fast edgy shoot into a stream.

I already did SEE that it was a high-repeat time "reflector". I was just pointing out additionally that the stream running through the output can collide with the input before the input even hits the reflector, i.e. it's not a very good inserter.
Also we're beginning to get to the point where we may start slinging insults at each other so maybe we should just stop.

Here's a challenge: make a computer in WWEJ3 which extends its RAM when it is running low on it (i.e has effectively infinite memory)

Does a register machine with infinitely extensible registers count?

Sure, anything which adds new memory when running low.

What about a machine the consistently makes new memory no matter what?

If that's so, you can attach a UC to an existing computer that consistently builds new units of RAM.

What's your best solution for LSSCG(3)?

Prove or disprove the existence of a function such that f((3a+2)+(3b+2)) = f((3a+2)*(3b+2)) and f(3n+2) is not equal to f(3n+5).
