01:51:51 asciilifeform: ;;later tell kakobrekla gonna bid on bbet ?
01:51:51 gribble: The operation succeeded.
01:52:22 asciilifeform: ;;later tell kakobrekla i won't be sad at all if you do, quite the opposite
01:52:22 gribble: The operation succeeded.
02:28:18 *: funkenstein_ says "big bad bitbet bid" three times fast
02:30:54 asciilifeform: funkenstein_: old nyooz
02:31:20 funkenstein_: :)
02:33:08 funkenstein_: in happier news, copyrasts struggling https://torrentfreak.com/rightscorp-plans-to-hijack-pirates-browsers-until-a-fine-is-paid-160402/
02:35:47 funkenstein_: "The complaint comes from Rotten Records who state that the account holder behind a single Comcast IP address used BitTorrent to share the discography of Dog Fashion Disco, a long-since defunct metal band previously known as Hug the Retard."
06:44:27 davout: kakobrekla: do you control bitbet's twitter handle? should come with the other assets i think
06:44:50 davout: also, what's the precise hosting agreement that's in place today? when does it get terminated ?
07:00:34 kakobrekla: davout the api keys for twitter are in the code somewhere. ill have to check for the password (and possibly reset it). if the registered email is @bitbet then new owner can do that.
07:00:46 davout: ok
07:01:18 kakobrekla: davout there is no agreement for hosting. im paying for a server at online.net. it gets terminated when i stop paying for it.
07:08:36 punkman: are webserver logs/summaries available to bidders?
07:11:20 kakobrekla: has not been discussed (nor included in the deedboted package)
07:20:13 punkman: they are usually provided in such auctions, so I'd recommend putting something together
07:28:53 kakobrekla: idk are they? there has to be a line somewhere. my weaponized server setup is no included in it, nor is mirceas 'btc leaking payment network'.
07:34:22 punkman: they are. also expecting people to bid in comments of "progress report" post doesn't look like a great choice. has the auction been advertised elsewhere?
14:39:40 asciilifeform: ftr i will not be raising my max bid. if anyone wants the thing, they can bid 9 + epsilon.
14:40:08 kakobrekla: quitter
14:41:21 jurov: in eulora auctions there's minimal 5% raise
14:42:01 asciilifeform: kakobrekla: impulse buy. i had nfi how rusted the wreck would be, when bought.
14:42:21 PeterL: buyers remorse now?
14:42:48 asciilifeform: PeterL: more like, i had unwarranted assumption that ~machine~ would operate without interruption
14:43:03 asciilifeform: but now seems like this is one of the 1,001 'batteries not included'
14:43:19 PeterL: what batteries?
14:43:50 asciilifeform: PeterL: see log (particularly kakobrekla's comments)
14:44:19 PeterL: you mean the "server setup not included" comment?
14:46:34 asciilifeform: aha
14:48:52 jurov: i thought it's obvious, buyer is to read the code and figure it out
14:49:31 asciilifeform: anyway it is all fair, i am not trying to weasel out of my bid
14:49:36 asciilifeform: but might end up reselling if i win.
14:50:00 davout: asciilifeform: i place a 1 btc bid on your resale
14:50:23 asciilifeform: l0l
14:50:45 asciilifeform: i'ma try & clean the old tank before resale tho
14:53:23 punkman: easily worth 50btc+ for an online casino outfit
14:53:54 asciilifeform: punkman: if it ~worked~
14:54:04 punkman: just the domain
14:54:26 asciilifeform: punkman: doubtful, it's a .us domain, and i still don't understand how come usg never stole it
14:55:10 PeterL: why did they pick a .us domain in the first place?
14:55:21 davout: asciilifeform: i think it was registered to chetty, which afaik was a us citizen
14:55:42 davout: well, it /was/ registered to chetty, and I /think/ she was a us citizen
14:56:25 kakobrekla: asciilifeform i know why but you wouldnt believe anyway.
14:56:37 PeterL: asciilifeform maybe it was just such small amounts that the usg never thought it worth going after?
14:57:48 PeterL: despite asciilifeform's conspiracy theories, there is probably nobody in usg that cares what we are doing
14:59:22 asciilifeform: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=04-04-2016#1443249 << i have met some of these 'nobody'.

14:59:59 asciilifeform: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=04-04-2016#1443248 << they've robbed much smaller piggies than 700+ btc.

15:00:22 asciilifeform: problem likely was that coin was in mp's hands, and stealing the domain would not have yielded them any.
15:00:40 PeterL: aha
15:01:00 asciilifeform: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=04-04-2016#1443247 << kakobrekla if your hypothesis differs from above, it would be interesting to learn it ?
15:01:00 assbot: Logged on 04-04-2016 14:56:25; kakobrekla: asciilifeform i know why but you wouldnt believe anyway.
15:02:39 kakobrekla: you have met the nobodies? how come you are not yet soap?
15:03:17 PeterL: are these nobodies the same as lizzard hitler?
15:05:29 asciilifeform: kakobrekla: i have nfi why not yet soap, and mp did not have a ready explanation either.
15:05:44 kakobrekla: mega unsurprise.
15:05:51 asciilifeform: kakobrekla: but i had busybodies show up 'for no reason' at my old office, and elsewhere
15:05:59 asciilifeform: BingoBoingo-style
15:07:53 asciilifeform: PeterL: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=14-11-2014#922393 << see thread.
15:07:53 assbot: Logged on 14-11-2014 22:24:42; asciilifeform: (for n00bs only: who is 'lizard hitler' ? a character approximately as real as magnetic field lines were to michael faraday. don't look for magnetic field lines, they aren't there. physically. or as far as we can tell, anyway.)
15:09:11 asciilifeform: PeterL: or if you prefer, think of it as an item analogous to the planet's magnetic north.
15:09:30 asciilifeform: i.e. it is there only as a notational shorthand.
15:48:16 kakobrekla: btw re bitbet domains. bitbet.co was unregistered before Thu Mar 17 16:23:13 GMT 2016, i have actually whoised it before that (and after the fiasco started) but did not register. secondly there was more than 1 bitbet domain that was registered when bbet started in case .us would get taken. i suppose those should be transfered as well. < davout
15:50:04 kakobrekla: i should have probably snatched the .co at the time, to go with the package.
16:40:12 davout: kakobrekla: can you list them? suxx for the .co
16:52:16 kakobrekla: davout i cant seem to find any records of that at the moment. maybe it was .ws and another one.
16:53:09 kakobrekla: also
18:04:44 PeterL: why doesn't #bitcoin-assets-trades report mpex trades anymore?
18:07:25 asciilifeform: PeterL: schism
18:07:45 asciilifeform: PeterL: iirc kakobrekla proclaimed that nothing mircea_popescutronic is to dwell here.
18:10:18 PeterL: aha, ok
18:11:50 kakobrekla: actually he disabled the feature on his end before i could do it on my end so he can continue his dream of having control over everything uninterrupted.
18:30:53 punkman: hmm so nobody has a log of trades for last X days?
18:31:40 kakobrekla: there were any?
18:32:01 punkman: ah I guess coinbr has them
18:33:34 jurov: uh it ends by march 21?
18:33:37 jurov: mike_c:
18:34:20 jurov: everyone else was getting their mpex dope via kako?
18:35:07 punkman: jurov, have you thought of letting people list on coinbr directly?
18:35:36 jurov: sure, thought
18:39:10 jurov: and there isn't anything worth the hassle, don't want to run it alone, etc. etc.
18:40:16 mike_c: my poller might have died
18:40:20 mike_c: I'll give it a kick
18:41:00 jurov: do you need to refill data? or will get them from mircea?
18:42:57 jurov: !s asciilifeform management engine
18:42:58 assbot: 1 results for 'asciilifeform management engine' : http://s.b-a.link/?q=asciilifeform+management+engine
18:43:05 jurov: ^ punkman
18:46:39 mike_c: well. yeah, nevermind. I do get the data from kako, so if his feed is dead then those graphs are dead.
19:13:47 jurov: so, what now. ask him for refund?
21:31:19 kakobrekla: my shit was free. i can refund it not a problem. ten times if you wish.
