Wow. It's amazing how incredibly tangled I can accidentally make a logic diagram that only requires nine gates plus four flip-flops. Admittedly, any sequential logic is inherently tied in knots, but this is sort of sad. I had trouble reading my own diagram- until I went to the trouble of putting little routing arrows ("Data go this way") along the lines, which made it- well, not clear, but at least comprehensible.

It also made it look a little silly.

Why does this fail to surprise me? ,'P

Where can I see this logic diagram of yours?

Dr. Jolley has it, presently. (I handed in the assignment.) It wasn't a particularly interesting problem; given a clock signal CLK and an input line B, create a circuit with one output F that is high when and only when it detects the pattern 1010111, one input per clock cycle, low-order bit first. Just a simple exercise, but in updating from one state to the next (we were to implement as a Moore machine), I managed to twist the input lines backwards in unreasonable ways.

Information superhighway? This was more like information spaghetti.
