Why are you interested in joining this server?: 
I'm looking for people who are also interested in building redstone computers. I'm only really experienced with the "purist" dust, torch, and repeater, and would like to find inspiration on using more modern components in computational builds. Maybe talking to people who know a lot about redstone and computing in general would help me understand more.
Current Redstone knowledge: 
Most of my experience is just general computer science major stuff, not specific to redstone. Most of what *is* redstone specific, are memorized compact designs for adders and such, and of course the way the basic components work. What I don't know yet is how to "bridge the gap" between redstone computation and real computers, for example building a recreation of an NES CPU
Past Redstone Experience: 
I started playing around with computational redstone while taking a college class on computer architecture in Spring 2018. Since then I've toyed with 8-bit redstone CPUs, combining simple adders and logic operations with registers and instruction interpreters (and one still-buggy CPU clock).
About how often do you play Minecraft?: 
1-5 hours per day
Application status: 
Approved
What kind of creations would you like to build on this server?: 
My creations (shown in the images linked below) are attempts at simple 8-bit CPUs. Essentially just an ALU composed of an adder and some other logic operations, attached to a small register file. My simple instruction formats use small decoders to open "transistor" gates that determine which operation will take place with the data from which register. My next big milestones are implementing automatic instruction entry allowing prewritten programs, and following that, jumping/branching support leading to a turing complete machine.
