00:16:03 asciilifeform: indeed it is there

00:16:14 asciilifeform: and there is a buncha rubbish/deadcode that needs to go, as well

00:16:30 asciilifeform: perhaps more interesting is my discovery that... the thing breaks 'v'

00:24:56 phf: oh, ty

00:25:39 phf: yeah, the i18n stuff was preventing me from building it, but otherwise it works (with some extra modifications to get it running under clang/macsosx, but those are inconsequential)

00:29:57 asciilifeform: i'd like to get it to a point where it builds without any blood sacrifices on all vaguely-posixy machines

00:44:37 ag3nt_zer0: anyone around?

00:45:30 ag3nt_zer0: oh ok... couldnt see the nickname list for a sec

00:46:07 ag3nt_zer0: how's it goin out there?

01:23:48 mod6: ok i've resolved that issue asciilifeform, I'll test on it for a few days and probably post a new version this coming weekend.

01:24:27 mod6: just so we're clear, this change makes it so "use Graph::Easy" is not required unless the 'g|graph' flag is passed.

01:43:53 mircea_popescu: from the tinfoil hat chronicles :

01:44:02 mircea_popescu: "Tom Morello was born on May 30, 1964, in Harlem, New York to Ngethe Njoroge and Mary Morello. Njoroge was Kikuyu Kenyan and a Mau Mau guerrilla. Jomo Kenyatta, the revolutionary leader of the Mau Mau, was his uncle. Njoroge served as liberated Kenya?s first ambassador to the U.N. In August 1963, Njoroge and Mary met at a pro democracy protest in Nairobi, Kenya. In November 1963 after discovering her pregnancy, Mary

01:44:03 mircea_popescu: returned to the United States with Njoroge in toll, and married in New York City.

01:44:03 mircea_popescu: Undoubtedly, Mary Morello similarly to Ann Dunham worked for either the U.S. State Department under Dean Rusk through the USAID student operations ran by Helms to infiltrate leftist Black African Liberation Movements to disrupt, recruit and inform. Ann Dunham was three months pregnant when she married Barack Obama Sr. on February 2, 1961. While Obama Jr. was being conceived in 1960, Mary Morello was circulating in Nair

01:44:05 mircea_popescu: obi, Kenya. Mary Morello had travelled to Kenya as well as Germany, Spain, Japan under a clandestine veil as an English language teacher between 1957 and 1963.

01:44:08 mircea_popescu: After graduating from Libertyville High School, Tom Morello was the first student in Libertyville?s history to be admitted to Harvard University. Yet when he graduated with a degree in political science, Tom Morello asserts that he was ?unemployable.? He then turned up in Hollywood as an exotic male stripper.

01:44:12 mircea_popescu: Ordinarily that?s the way the story is suppose to end, two small town boys from Middle America makes good. It was just faith that two young white independent American females just happened to be in the right place and right time [one in the middle of the East Africa] by chance meet two centrally placed Black African Liberation figures key to the interests of British and U.S. Foreign Policy.

01:44:19 mircea_popescu: One entangles the nephew of one of the most important and powerful Black Nationalist political figures of the 20th Century, Jomo Kenyatta, and the other entangles a key tribal rival to Kenyatta in love child triangles just at the moment of the critical end to a long bloody struggle for Kenyan independence from white colonial rule."

You go ahead and place your crazy protest bids way off in the bottom of the sociological order book and scream that someday, SOMEDAY, the market will come down to meet you, and you will be vindicated.

02:17:36 asciilifeform: 'An eccentric history buff was found guilty Monday of killing three prominent Alexandria residents over the course of a decade..... Prosecutors said he was motivated by bitterness over a child custody battle that he lost and a general hatred of Alexandria?s elite..'

02:18:09 asciilifeform: mug shot suggests that they caught... rasputin ?

02:18:27 mircea_popescu: lmao

02:19:02 asciilifeform: earlier, 'The case against Charles Severance, who turned 55 last month in the Fairfax County jail, is a circumstantial one, predicated largely on Severance?s voluminous writings and ballistics evidence that isn?t as conclusive as prosecutors might like.'

02:19:35 mircea_popescu: awww, nsa division head fell into the "find me five lines and i'll hang him" trap ?

02:19:42 asciilifeform: how else.

02:20:02 mircea_popescu: listen up, remaining ones... you won't know which of you isn't on my books already. but you know YOU aren't, and now you know it'll mean your ass.

02:20:14 mircea_popescu: get with the program, there's no prizes for being the last traitor of a dying state.

02:20:47 asciilifeform: somewhere a kryuchkov is nervously fondling his luger

02:22:44 asciilifeform: 'Their most convincing piece of evidence might be Severance?s writings, seized from his car and through various electronic means.'

02:24:09 mircea_popescu: im sure they're very convincing.

02:25:58 asciilifeform: (elsewhere) 'Severance was arrested in March 2014 over the murders after he sought asylum at the Russian Embassy in D.C. He was reportedly 'sent away' from the embassy and told he was an 'unwanted guest'.'

02:26:21 mircea_popescu: almost qntrable.

02:28:12 asciilifeform: the 'damning writings' themselves are - unsurprisingly - not public anywhere, afaik.

02:28:32 mircea_popescu: but they are convincing!

02:29:04 asciilifeform: 'a prosecutor told a jury Wednesday. The killings, carried out over roughly a decade, were nothing short of ?political assassinations.? ?Introduce murder into a safe and secure neighborhood,? Alexandria Assistant Commonwealth?s Attorney David Lord quoted from Severance?s writings.'

02:30:18 asciilifeform: 'A former Virginia political candidate was convicted on Monday of three murders over an 11-year span that fed fears of a serial killer in the U.S. capital area.'

02:30:23 asciilifeform: candidate, lol

02:30:38 asciilifeform: '...ran for mayor and Congress. He sometimes wore a tricorn hat, was known for ranting in public and once threw a punch at the organizer of a mayoral debate.'

02:30:56 asciilifeform: (paging emperor norton!)

02:32:54 BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> almost qntrable. << Someone give it the right treatment it could be.

02:33:38 mod6: asciilifeform: looks like my version handled it ok? http://dpaste.com/38PTAHG.txt

02:33:38 assbot: ... ( http://bit.ly/1XKOZzz )

02:33:50 mircea_popescu: wird.

02:34:07 asciilifeform: 'Lord [prosecutor] also said he believed that Severance did not leave forensic evidence at the scene of any of the killings because he wore gloves. He pointed out that ballistics experts said it was exceedingly rare for a killing to be carried out with the type of .22-caliber ammunition used in each case and added that Severance displayed guilty behavior by fleeing to the Russian Embassy in the District after police initially

02:34:07 asciilifeform: contacted him about Lodato's killing.'

02:34:26 asciilifeform: mod6: odd!

02:35:21 asciilifeform: and wtf, the usg Official Truth is that MOST small arms homicides in usa have .22 hole.

02:35:27 asciilifeform: last i saw.

02:36:12 asciilifeform: jury was either a) not told this b) knew but was Officially ordered to disregard ?

02:36:20 mod6: oh, i did notice that your vpatch does have dates in it though. you probably just had an older version of vdiff?

02:36:36 asciilifeform: mod6: hm it appears so.

02:36:53 mod6: mine still didn't seem to care, but maybe try yours without ts's?

02:37:06 asciilifeform: mod6: the price i pay for having half-finished crud lying around

02:37:14 mircea_popescu: i still dunno why it would have died

02:37:15 mod6: i hear ya :]

02:37:18 mircea_popescu: and perhaps it should be fuzzed

02:37:49 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: my original 'v' relied on python's 're' (regexp) widget, and will prolly fall down if looked at with evil eye

02:38:15 mircea_popescu: a

02:38:22 mircea_popescu: a ok this isn't his

02:40:47 asciilifeform: 'In another passage he writes, ?I?ve been nudging and trolling for over a decade and nobody has noticed. Violence wins. Assassinate because it is in the best interest of the child.?'

02:41:04 asciilifeform: 'Defense lawyers for Charles Severance, 54, of Ashburn, had asked the judge to bar prosecutors from using the writing as evidence out of concern that his inflammatory message would unfairly rile up a jury against him.'

02:41:37 asciilifeform: ( http://valawyersweekly.com/2015/06/25/judge-prosecutors-can-show-jurors-severances-writings )

02:44:33 ben_vulpes: regex is black fucking magic

02:48:07 asciilifeform: which is that the shrinkage of design space led us into a place where often one MUST use a regexp or a similarly braindamaged thing

02:48:14 asciilifeform: because the alternative is ?????????

02:49:01 mircea_popescu: in seeminglyt unrelated news,

02:49:02 mircea_popescu: "Before, the experience of addiction was entirely subjective, is it messing up your life? Now, it's been objectified, the subject's relationship with the drug is is no longer relevant, it is the fact of the drug that is relevant. The obvious example of this sleight of hand is that there's alcohol use and alcohol abuse, but there's no such category as cocaine use, even though the vast majority of its ingestion has nothi

02:49:02 mircea_popescu: ng to do with addiction. The reinforcement is from the outside to comply with this idiocy: say you party down one weekend, then a random drug test at work, oops! So two things can happen, Guess What Happens Next: you could tell the truth that the coke was on her ass and how could you not? doesn't make you a bad person; or pretend/admit you're an addict and agree to go to rehab. So it's unanimous? You keep your job

02:49:03 mircea_popescu: at McDonalds and the system gets another data point confirming it is right. I hope the parallel between this and anything written by Solzhenitsyn is immediately obvious, if not, read anything by Solzhenitsyn. The Matrix doesn't need you, but it will offer you a free pass if you help get the other batteries in line."

02:49:08 asciilifeform: pushing around huge fucking tanks of unstructured text sludge that has to be picked apart by machine every single fucking time you want to do anything - leads to regexp.

02:49:23 ben_vulpes: punkman: https://github.com/pgbovine/CDE/blob/master/scripts/package_completer.py#L39

02:49:24 assbot: CDE/package_completer.py at master · pgbovine/CDE · GitHub ... ( http://bit.ly/1XKQqOl )

02:49:40 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform and ironically the tanks of sludge got to be in the first place because "people want to read the code".

02:49:50 asciilifeform: aha.

02:50:12 asciilifeform: but also because 'why not have diff output a sexpr?' 'ewwwww parens omfg!1111111'

02:50:25 mircea_popescu: romney should have run on a platform of "there may be only one compiler and one namespace per generation and whoever breaks it we'll sell to ethiopian slavers"

02:50:51 mircea_popescu: forget "fiscal conservative" bs. information conservative.

02:51:04 asciilifeform: if it's one where diff and every single fucking thing under the sun doesn't operate on sexprs or something isomorphic - we get exactly to the same place we are now.

02:51:21 mircea_popescu: no, because no "autoconf" nor "make" bs

02:51:42 asciilifeform: we are dealing with a very basic mathematical issue

02:51:44 mircea_popescu: and it wouldn't be sexprs it'd be asts

02:51:49 asciilifeform: no different from the african huts that won't stand up

02:52:05 asciilifeform: sexpr is merely one way to represent an unambiguously-parseable ast

02:52:09 mircea_popescu: aha.

02:52:13 asciilifeform: which is why i said 'or isomorphic'

02:52:16 mircea_popescu: but focusing on the format is pointless.

02:52:20 mircea_popescu: right

02:52:36 ben_vulpes: asciilifeform: i am in the habit of sending various relatives snippets to paste into sbcl and limited instructions on what to do

02:53:01 ben_vulpes: (re parens)

02:53:10 asciilifeform: and...?

02:53:13 ben_vulpes: works!

02:53:15 mircea_popescu: we now know enough - through our own work of digging and torture-extracted confessions, no less - to estimate that a large if not the largest pillar of the insanity was rms&co misguided quest to protect "but people want to read the code".

02:53:33 ben_vulpes: these are molecular researchy folks and the like

02:53:50 mircea_popescu: io hope you're sending them as docx

02:54:00 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: how's that

02:54:02 asciilifeform: ?

02:54:13 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform recall the "can't expose ast" drama ?

02:54:22 asciilifeform: aha

02:54:29 ben_vulpes: i don't, praytell?

02:54:46 asciilifeform: the thing he did is called (at least by ilkka kokkarinen, who introduced me to the concept),

02:54:50 asciilifeform: 'unprincipled exception'

02:55:21 asciilifeform: 'yes, everyone can read the code!' 'but now we gotta make it so that we aren't working for microshit for free because no one can actually make'em obey gpl'

02:55:21 mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes recent rms/everyone else fallout over whether llvm is good or not and gcc should or shouyld not expose the ast

02:55:32 mircea_popescu: quite.

02:55:35 asciilifeform: so we got obfuscatory obscurantist skulduggery.

02:55:52 mircea_popescu: they were wrong btw. should have worked for ms for free.

02:55:57 ben_vulpes: "In all likelihood, there was no

02:56:09 mircea_popescu: as in "i'll slit your throat and rape your sluts" free

02:56:09 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: this is how we got apple.

02:56:15 asciilifeform: (the current, post-nextstep apple)

02:56:32 mircea_popescu: i disagree.

02:57:07 mircea_popescu: we would have gotten apple no matter what, even withoujt computing. apple is what happens when an ambitious young man gets lucky with the media buys early and then sticks to it.

02:57:20 asciilifeform: everything in an apple product that actually fuking WORKS, silently, tirelessly, without fail, without generating 'work' for armies of vermin - was written by folks who never dreamed that it would end up in a commercial unix

02:57:27 mircea_popescu: (it's a testament to the idiocy of america : you can FORCE them into liking anything.)

02:57:29 asciilifeform: (because they were dim, yes)

02:57:58 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: that's how we got the earlier apple.

02:58:12 asciilifeform: i'm speaking of the present-day one, which destroyed every other commercial unix house

02:58:31 asciilifeform: at least partly because it never had to pay for what became the os.

02:58:44 mircea_popescu: the "commercial unix houses" were the happy marriage of imbeciles to eighteen-abortions whores.

02:58:57 asciilifeform: sun was a legit thing for a spell

02:59:03 mircea_popescu: fucking medieval shogun'd have murdered them.

02:59:03 asciilifeform: (through 1995 or so)

02:59:13 asciilifeform: even hp

02:59:23 mircea_popescu: hp SELECTED fiorina.

02:59:25 mircea_popescu: ye ken ?

02:59:40 *: asciilifeform once owned a massive 'tempest'-shielded pa-risc monstrosity

02:59:43 mircea_popescu: here's a bit of truth for one bb : "Note that when scienticians talk about, say, the increase in alcoholism, they never go back before WWII, otherwise they'd have to label most ancient Greeks, all Vikings and everyone in colonial America as alcoholics. "Well," they'll explain, "it wasn't until then we started rigorously treating people as data points." "

03:00:11 mircea_popescu: funnily, the DO NOT apply the same principle to "climate data".

Why do they all own high-quality mobile phones charged with seemingly endless minutes? It is clear that the ?refugees
