wait wait wait i have an idea for what to name the idle
the x86 instruction for reading the cycles since reset is called RDTSC... so what if the story is called WRTSC (for *write* TSC)
either that or something like `jmp .ctc_begin`
(where ctc means 'closed timelike curve')
@hierarchon i don't have context for this but it sounds like an instruction from one of those alt-puzzle games where there's a hypothetical CPU that can go back in time to an earlier state by writing a lower value to its cycle counter
@chr it's a video game i'm toying around with that's one of those idler/incrementals, where you play as an AI trying to escape a time-travel research facility
