Re: And thus..

" If you say a log can be reliably kept with nothing but ASCII, explain how you can say a coin landed edge when all you have to work with is a single bit: 1 or 0?"

Uh, that's exactly -- I mean EXACTLY -- the point of ASCII logging; you are not limited to a circumscribed description:

Aug 22 22:30:12 localhost flipd: INFO: Coin landed on edge

I think it's you who will have a problem expressing an incommensurate event in a number system that doesn't include a representation of the event's state.
