Did anyone ever try to contact Microsoft about error correction algos?
It's not as simple as that.

All the suppliers have independently created error correction systems for different parts of a computer that don't talk to each other.

It's like a million public transit agencies operating a million different bus routes, each which requires a different bus fare, there's no bus transfer between the buses, and there's no reporting of passenger count between them.

Likewise, a USB chip vendor may only be concerned about algorithms on both ends of the USB connection, and none of that information is reported to Microsoft Windows, as an example... The vendors responsible for two ends of a circuit route (A to B) doesn't worry about the two ends of a different circuit route (C to D).

You know what I am saying?

Yea i actually heavily researched this stuff too its not as simple as bit error rate over an entire system u would have to measure the bit error rate over specific logic circuits its not that complicated there are devices that do it but they cost a fortune 30k+

And building this self-monitoring technology into computers is currently impractical.

Na, more like anarchy. Look at the impressive high speed train networks & impressive subway networks that China now has. Or even the impressive free public transit that rich western-world Luxemborg has. Or that impressive GO Trains / Streetcars that highly capitalist Toronto, Canada has -- with ridership bigger than a 12-lane freeway! -- even Long Island Railroad has envy.</railgeek>

But this is Blur Busters, we don't talk politics. We talk geek stuff.
