"Bollocks. I really hope you do not work with computers."
Bollocks on the bollocks. 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? Language can hit limits. Just as some things simply cannot be expressed in a yes or no, so some things cannot be reliably said in just ASCII. That's why there's such a thing as necessary complexity.
