00:00:15 asciilifeform: re: inheritance tax crapolade: the usg elite does not bequeath/inherit via the usual mechanism, but rather by:

00:00:17 asciilifeform: !s merit washing

00:00:18 assbot: 25 results for 'merit washing' : http://s.b-a.link/?q=merit+washing

00:01:16 asciilifeform: i.e. send children to harvaprinceyaleton, internships in africa saving monkeys or whoever, they are then eminently paper-qualified and no one can possibly object (tm) to their ascendency as apparatchiks

00:01:35 asciilifeform: the process is reasonably well-documented by mr mold et al and i will not waste more space on it here

00:01:43 asciilifeform: except to remind n00bs of its existence on such occasions.

00:02:33 mircea_popescu: if moldy had bothered to run the demos rather than just too busy sitting on ass and opining, he'd have noticed this theory is about as leaky as his submarines.

00:02:41 mircea_popescu: run the numbers if you're bored.

00:02:50 asciilifeform: which numbers in particular ?

00:03:52 mircea_popescu: well, the ones contained in the theory. apparatchick count, ivy league output, rich list.

00:04:09 asciilifeform: recall that apparatchiks are not all, or even most, collecting official federal salaries.

00:04:13 mircea_popescu: see how many kids rich people of 1960 had, how many of them are in ivy league in 1980,

00:04:22 mircea_popescu: and of those how many in the apparatus by 2000

00:04:41 mircea_popescu: or, if you prefer, for simplicity, work backwards.

00:04:46 asciilifeform: iirc mr mold does not trace the descent of modern elite to the rich of 1960

00:04:50 mircea_popescu: who do we start with, de blasio ? cuomo ?

00:04:51 asciilifeform: in fact, specifically disclaims it

00:05:03 mircea_popescu: and if you say "this is midwest only" or "this is non democrat only " you already lost.

00:05:15 mircea_popescu: well then what's the testable hypothesis ?

00:05:43 asciilifeform: posits a phase transition some time in early '60s where the 'optimates' (his term, something like 'old money') were dethroned by 'brahmins' (the folks running the show today, socialist functionaries who work 'for the good of m4nk1nd')

00:06:37 mircea_popescu: but. what is. teh. teeeeestable.

00:06:39 mircea_popescu: hypothesis.

00:06:41 mircea_popescu: ya know ?

00:06:52 mircea_popescu: otherwise teh empty rhetoric is suspect of well... that.

00:07:22 asciilifeform: testable hypothesis is that folks presently coming in to officer the upper ranks of the usgarchy (including not merely cia, etc. but the vc circus) , are largely annointees of previous generation therein.

00:07:53 mircea_popescu: unlike what, post explosion tunguska ?

00:07:56 mircea_popescu: that's always the case.

00:08:04 asciilifeform: always, sure

00:08:11 asciilifeform: but in this case a specific mechanism is posited

00:08:27 asciilifeform: sub-rosa, maximally deniable annointment

00:08:29 mircea_popescu: which works about as well as random chance.

00:09:29 mircea_popescu: suppose the converse. i have a girl with any of my women, she witnesses the life in a harem geowing up, i tell her all the dirty secrets of the world because i dfon't give a fuck, i encourage her to parade naked in town when she's 16 and so on, and when i die i leave her half a billion in untraceable money.

00:09:38 mircea_popescu: and this chick's not going to succeed because um ?

00:09:58 mircea_popescu: obviously the offspring of the powerful will do just fine, unless a) the powerful's just a fake elite ;b) the offspring's retarded or c) both.

00:10:29 asciilifeform: wasn't even arguing against the succession per se (next what, i should argue against snow?) but the bizarre deception games

00:10:53 mircea_popescu: mebbe their gaminess' imagined.

00:11:34 asciilifeform: mebbe my chair is imagined

00:11:37 asciilifeform: and i'm actually on a stake.

00:12:20 mircea_popescu: tell me how does it feel

00:12:24 mircea_popescu: to be on a staaakeee...

00:12:27 mircea_popescu: anywya, ima brb

02:09:16 *: asciilifeform total chump, came back from buying super-pleasure-led light bulbs only to discover that they won't fit in a single fixture he has

02:09:58 mircea_popescu: pleasure leds ?

02:10:04 mircea_popescu: what are you, potted plant ?

02:10:10 *: asciilifeform learned from a previous chumpapade that the ones molded to occupy the space taken by ordinary bulb, are laughably dim

02:10:20 *: asciilifeform hence bought the 1600 lumen units

02:10:27 asciilifeform: ever so slightly too big.

02:10:36 mircea_popescu: "accidentally"

02:11:01 asciilifeform: not exactly. and not really a secret why

02:11:36 punkman: asciilifeform: punkman: is that a total de-wxcrudification i see ? << I think so

02:11:40 asciilifeform: (the massive heat sinks for the rectifier don't do well in enclosed domes. but idiots insisted on placing them therein anyway, torching their hose. never mind that my domes are open to 30cm of air on the top - can't allow fit!

02:12:18 mircea_popescu: see, if only dc won,

02:12:22 mircea_popescu: you wouldn't need rectifiers.

02:12:29 asciilifeform: aha.

02:12:47 mircea_popescu: course the heat sink on the cables...

02:13:19 asciilifeform: what cables.

02:13:21 asciilifeform: bus bars.

02:13:24 mircea_popescu: lol

02:14:59 asciilifeform: punkman: looks like you clobbered all of it, nice

02:19:16 mircea_popescu: doesn't even have to be hammered

02:20:14 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: generally, one ought to. 'skin effect' doesn't apply at dc.

02:20:37 mircea_popescu: better fittings available for proper pipe.

02:21:10 assbot: ... ( http://bit.ly/1zGzVsY )

02:21:18 asciilifeform: better fittings - yes. for pipe.

02:21:23 asciilifeform: pipe to wire - problematic.

02:21:49 mircea_popescu: can always flatten the end :D

02:22:00 asciilifeform: i've been known to do just that.

02:22:04 asciilifeform: but i'm probably terminally lazy.

02:26:25 asciilifeform: next ad is more mundane 'hotel rates in moscow' etc.

02:26:26 mircea_popescu: this is somehow of value ?

02:26:34 asciilifeform: of zoological value

02:26:41 asciilifeform: i have yet to see an ad like this on 'google'

02:26:46 asciilifeform: or in any engl. speaking venue

02:27:14 *: asciilifeform does not normally repost spam, but this is a serious new (to him) page in spamatronics

02:27:43 asciilifeform: as for the photo, i happen to like it. and think it would look good in any respectable salt mine.

02:27:46 asciilifeform: in break room.

02:30:25 asciilifeform: the_scourge: reddit article << now my turn to ask, what was the interesting part ?

02:30:30 asciilifeform: i'm unable to find one

02:30:56 asciilifeform: was it the stooge, proclaiming 'Then you shouldn't be pushing for btcd in the post. Btcd is harmful to consensus. Your proposal to have miners run multiple consensus implementations doesn't require btcd to exist and its existence doesn't benefit it.' ?

02:31:16 asciilifeform: we already know about the spam farms. it's over.

02:32:42 mircea_popescu: spam is over ?!

02:33:00 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform which reminds me, you know the joke with the jew an' the big mean dog ?

02:33:27 asciilifeform: 'only the dead shall see the end of spam'

02:33:30 asciilifeform: or the like

02:33:33 asciilifeform: big dog ?

02:34:12 asciilifeform: decimation: your cloak is broken.

02:34:15 mircea_popescu: a scrawny jewish real estate agent is going down the street to show a house to a customer. on the way, a large butchery, and in it a huge dog

02:34:25 mircea_popescu: which starts to bark quite furious. the jew stops in fear

02:34:31 decimation: oh no

02:34:40 mircea_popescu: the butcher, a huge guy with a huge mustache, "don't be afraid, it won't bite"

02:34:47 mircea_popescu: to which the jew retorts "my good man!

02:34:59 mircea_popescu: have you talked with the dog about this, or is it entirely your own opinion ?"

02:35:07 asciilifeform: l0l!

02:35:12 decimation: I wonder if it is because I joined before the cloak took effect

02:35:29 mircea_popescu: it ? getting flooded ?

02:36:10 asciilifeform: if using a braindamaged/misconfigured client, the time to stop is probably now

02:37:00 decimation: it's funny, I don't see many incoming packets

02:37:25 punkman: what's with the "(quit: Changing host)"?

02:38:25 mircea_popescu: nice last words.

02:38:41 mircea_popescu: "duck ? what duck ?! anvil ? what anvil ?"

02:38:56 asciilifeform: 'hey bubba, watch this'

02:39:16 *: asciilifeform learned these 'famous last words' without context, but always imagined a frag involved

02:39:18 mircea_popescu: ;;google 'hey bubba, watch this'

02:40:09 mod6: hi all

02:40:19 punkman: decimation: you need to use SASL

02:41:39 decimation: punkman: I did use sasl

02:41:53 mircea_popescu: use it twice!

02:42:04 punkman: decimation: you were already using it?

02:42:12 *: asciilifeform sits and contemplates mircea_popescu's software license, and increasingly likes it

02:42:27 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform have you notice how my shit grows on one in retrospect ?

02:42:39 decimation: punkman: ah no, apparently I failed to configure it when I changed computers

02:42:46 mircea_popescu: starts as a joke, which is kinda funny, except haha, only funny, except hm... etc.

02:43:10 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i like to think i've pulled off this effect once or twice on folks

02:43:53 mircea_popescu: what did the father of the girl schopenhauer was courting say ?

02:44:00 asciilifeform: ?

02:44:08 mircea_popescu: "he's a nice enough fellow, if only he were more serious."

02:44:33 asciilifeform: l0l

02:48:16 *: asciilifeform is inescapably curious re: how the license in the article would actually behave in a secular court

02:48:26 asciilifeform: should it somehow make its appearance there

02:49:07 asciilifeform: the last clause of part (ii) would probably give a traditional jurist indigestion

02:49:13 asciilifeform: but - ianal

02:49:30 mircea_popescu: actually it would in principle bar any sort of legally organised body from ever using the software.

02:49:37 asciilifeform: well yes

02:49:38 asciilifeform: no shit

02:49:53 mircea_popescu: so it's moot.

02:50:02 asciilifeform: but is contract (implicit, 'shrinkwrap', otherwise) where one promises to break a law, a valid contract ?

02:50:11 asciilifeform: for all i know the whole thing would be tossed, like a rich man's prenup

02:50:33 mircea_popescu: well but if the whole thing's tossed then they have not acquired the right to use it.

02:50:42 mircea_popescu: secular law is positive.

02:50:52 asciilifeform: but then it's just like a missing license.

02:51:01 mircea_popescu: no, it's like an actual unlicense.

02:51:07 asciilifeform: ^ good name

02:51:18 asciilifeform: short, descriptive.

02:51:20 asciilifeform: unlicense.

02:51:51 punkman: next we will start planning the real unmonastery

02:52:03 mircea_popescu: o no, that i already built.

02:52:19 punkman: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com//?date=03-02-2015#1005496 << James C. Scott writes about this "legibility/illegibility" thing, quite relevant

02:52:21 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu risks becoming famous as an 'anarchist' eben moglen now.

02:57:40 mircea_popescu: "driving adoption" the reddit way.

03:00:00 cazalla: well, at least they had the sense to avoid zhou's coinjar by going with bitpos instead

03:00:33 cazalla: might raise the eyebrow of vexual, think we're the only 2 aussies..

03:00:39 asciilifeform: re: ddos: i'm still at a loss at how snmp/ntp amplification ddosnets can carry on existing without a 'tragedy of the commons' situation - recall, anyone here could in principle invoke the chumpnet at any time

03:00:49 asciilifeform: by sending precisely the same kind of forged packets the idiot sends

03:00:55 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform cause we don't give a shit ?

03:01:07 decimation: who am I gonna spam?

03:01:10 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: well yes. but it also appears that no one, anywhere, gives a shit

03:01:20 mircea_popescu: there's this very narrow lost demographic, mostly at the periphery of the world, made up of kids smart enough to be able to do it but dumb enough to not have anything better to do.

03:01:23 asciilifeform: consider, any spammer in need of a ddosnet can simply walk into #b-a

03:01:24 mircea_popescu: it is really very very narrow.

03:01:26 asciilifeform: and get one for free

03:01:33 mircea_popescu: like, toothbrush sidewalk cleaners.

03:01:37 asciilifeform: lol

03:01:42 asciilifeform: that has to be it.

03:01:49 asciilifeform: i can't picture any other explanation, presently

03:01:52 mircea_popescu: if you can do it with a toothbrush you could ... restore art, or make your own, or be a surgeon or etc.

03:01:55 decimation: maybe someone should compile the list of broken devices and sell it on -otc?

03:02:09 mircea_popescu: decimation but the people who could do it could get it anyway

03:02:11 asciilifeform: decimation: kakobrekla and i already posted, for free...

03:02:22 mircea_popescu: and anyone else a) doesn't hjave the money and b) would just be happy to send you support tickets

03:02:29 asciilifeform: they also are not especially hard to scan for in the wild

03:02:30 mircea_popescu: because the webwhrores charge for talking to them

04:29:58 asciilifeform: but how often.

04:30:06 danielpbarron: every hour or so

04:30:06 asciilifeform: and what kind of crash

04:30:18 asciilifeform: the usual oom ?

04:30:59 asciilifeform: i'm actually not certain that 250 is low enough setting to make a detectable difference on pogo

04:31:00 danielpbarron: std::bad_alloc

04:31:07 asciilifeform: ^ that'd be an oom.

04:31:34 asciilifeform: the bastard patch made the thing actually usable on pc for the first time (in my view)

04:33:08 asciilifeform: by no means is anyone encouraged to take my word for things.

04:33:54 danielpbarron: the old-fashioned laptop spinny drive arrive today

04:34:11 asciilifeform: swapping is the more or less one guaranteed way to ruin an arbitrarily good ssd.

04:34:14 danielpbarron: ss*

04:34:41 danielpbarron: what about spinning drive for swap and usb3 flash drive for chain

04:34:59 asciilifeform: requiring a spinning drive is bleh

04:35:01 danielpbarron: rather not have to do that though

04:35:08 asciilifeform: not to mention dog slow

05:51:29 ben_vulpes: now i understand how sensitive everyone is to the exposure of weapons-grade nodes to the internet at large, but i for one would greatly appreciate a few nodes of known vintage that would barf blocks to me at will for the testing of various bitcoinds.

05:52:01 asciilifeform: exposure of weapons-grade nodes to the internet at large << wai wat?! how would node function off the net ?

05:52:13 *: danielpbarron has two nodes on two different ips running different versions

05:53:03 ben_vulpes: the foundation's resources are meager. big servers that can build in parallel and download many chains in parallel are probably not a feasible acquisition at this time.

15:11:11 mircea_popescu: mod6 persuing your error log : it would seem to me that for some reason your peers keep pumping you with blocks height=168002 and over, whereas yotu never get height=168001.

15:11:20 mircea_popescu: this causes oom errors because narrow space for orphans.

15:11:30 mircea_popescu: it MAY be a subtle off-by-one error somewhere in the code.

15:12:05 mircea_popescu: note that none of the blocvks you receive match your sent getdata.

15:15:11 mircea_popescu: the fact that no checkpoints means no error would perhaps bolster the "bad code, off by one" hypothesis and relate it to the checkpoints implementation.

15:16:08 mircea_popescu: decimation: from $67,300 in 2014 to $61,287 this << remember the lulzy "need immigration to maintain geniusness of industree" paul graham nonsense ?

15:23:04 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform: swapping is the more or less one guaranteed way to ruin an arbitrarily good ssd. << while the principle is correct, in point of fact i would like this experimentally tried in our current case.

15:24:24 mircea_popescu: roughly speaking, my rationale is like this : because a large chunk of fixed data is always present (the actual blockchain), should a 100gb ssd be blessed with a 4gb swap partition, the drive finds itself in the position where the 100gb * 10k (say) writes are available as such : 100gb of them for the actual data, and 100gb * 9999 for the 4gb partition.

15:24:58 mircea_popescu: obviously 250`000 full rewrites of the swap means a decade or more of intense usage, and so, a perfectly economic use of the ssd in question.

15:25:45 mircea_popescu: so danielpbarron, if you feel like trying a generous swap on one of the pogos, with the understanding that the ssd disk you put in there will likely fry, please do so, and document the exeriment as well as possible.

15:26:00 danielpbarron: k

15:28:15 mircea_popescu: it's an ideal usecase for the "use ssd until it fries" because the value of running a pogo is in its running. so a pogo that ran for 3.5 years then died, had part replaced and resynced over three weeks then ran for another 3.5 years is a perfectly functional, 99.999% uptime pogo as good as any other.

15:28:26 mircea_popescu: same can almost never be said of catastrophic failure hdd system.

17:49:52 thestringpuller: but i guess her dad made deal with devil when defending OJ so whole family can have money

17:50:22 nubbins`: thestringpuller, if her dad was anyone else, she would not have made a "career" out of a sex tape

17:50:31 thestringpuller: ^- that was my point

17:50:32 nubbins`: a career on redtube, maybe

17:50:46 nubbins`: so unless you're saying you respect her because her dad went to law school...

17:50:53 nubbins`: no entiendo

17:51:08 nubbins`: see also paris hilton

17:51:48 mircea_popescu: no it's not.

17:51:56 thestringpuller: you know everyone on cochran's team who defended oj is dead

17:52:10 mircea_popescu: she is objectively a hot woman, and she understands feminity well enough to behave rationally.

17:52:28 nubbins`: sure. the world is full of objectively hot women, many of them hotter than her

17:52:33 nubbins`: (objectively)

17:52:33 mircea_popescu: one could argue idiotic us internet feminism is to blame for reducing her competition, at most.

17:57:39 nubbins`: if there's one thing that would make me permanently switch supermarkets, it'd be a couple of checkout aisles free from gossip mags

17:57:47 nubbins`: even just one

17:57:48 thestringpuller: because Jay-Z associates with these people rather than being a true G is why Dr. Dre beat him to the billionaire club.

17:58:06 thestringpuller: nubbins`: Whole Foods doesn't have gossip mags

17:58:24 nubbins`: t*: we don't have "whole foods" here.

17:58:34 nubbins`: mircea_popescu it's slightly more assaulting than billboard ads

17:58:47 thestringpuller: marketing is rape

17:59:38 thestringpuller: nubbins`: dre is a killer producer, but not nearly the same genius as say quincy jones. He made great business bets in comparison to Jay-Z.

20:00:15 asciilifeform: winblows user walking to pgp is somewhat like a prisoner walking in the direction of the yard gate. he is still in his cell.

20:01:14 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform no, not so. the better comparison is you saying " winblows user walking to pgp is somewhat like a virgin playing pensively with a fat cucumber. she isstill a virgin."

20:01:18 mircea_popescu: yes, she is. not for long.

20:01:55 asciilifeform: might depend on the winblows user, actually

20:02:05 jurov: mircea_popescu: verifying is another problem. i can do that by hand

20:02:16 asciilifeform: there are quite a few, i think, who are grossly underequipped - intellectually - to actually operate a computer

20:02:40 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform their possession is a blessing for whoever's not doing it : costs more than it produces.

22:10:12 asciilifeform: pete_dushenski: but more generally, applies to the sv vc crapolade. i.e. why does mr schmuck get 100 megabezzlars for schmuckatron? because he's the son/nephew/catamite of one of the vultures who feasted on the corpse of fairchild semi, at&t (pre-breakup), etc.

22:10:58 pete_dushenski: this is no different from what mazarin did

22:11:02 asciilifeform: (not necessarily direct relation - son in law, etc. will do in a pinch. as there's plenty of printed money to go around)

22:11:22 pete_dushenski: re-appropriate some wealth, give to kids

22:11:32 pete_dushenski: isn't this a roman thing even?

22:11:45 asciilifeform: the most pathetic aspect is when civilians become afflicted with the delusion of 'i can haz some too'

22:11:47 pete_dushenski: (and many others too, i'm sure)

22:12:02 pete_dushenski: well, because "we're all equal"

22:12:22 asciilifeform: pete_dushenski: as i tried to explain to mircea_popescu, 'merit wash' is a rather distinct animal from ordinary inheritance

22:12:30 asciilifeform: how:

22:12:47 pete_dushenski: so kid in compton is just like god-daughter of mr. rothschild

22:12:51 asciilifeform: inheritance doesn't create a gigantic circus where millions of fools think they have a shot at being an heir

22:13:03 asciilifeform: and thus warping entire civilization in various crippling ways

22:13:24 asciilifeform: !s tournament market

22:13:25 assbot: 7 results for 'tournament market' : http://s.b-a.link/?q=tournament+market

22:13:39 pete_dushenski: it would seem to necessitate an eventual divorce from reality

22:13:41 pete_dushenski: just to cope

22:14:04 pete_dushenski: (for the kids with no shot)

22:14:06 asciilifeform: let's ask BingoBoingo how sport aficionados feel re: 'fixed' matches in sports where this is not customary

22:14:21 pete_dushenski: are there such sports ?

22:14:30 pete_dushenski: maybe... golf

22:14:43 asciilifeform: that's the effect meritwash has on the participants (the 'extras' in the film, naturally. the pre-ordained winners - laugh all the way to the bank.)

22:14:47 pete_dushenski: where officials are largely on the sidelines and players call their own penalties

22:15:13 pete_dushenski: asciilifeform: which they do anyways so it can't be about them

22:15:44 asciilifeform: or, famously, the first television 'game show' - '64,000 dollar question' (usa) was famously discovered, in its day, to be fixed

22:15:49 asciilifeform: and this caused a national scandal

22:16:14 pete_dushenski: similar to who wants to be a millionaire? or the same ?

22:16:22 asciilifeform: no idea re ^
