00:16:16 mircea_popescu: ase, but for netflix usecase.
00:17:04 mircea_popescu: why would you imagine THAT particular aspect of the charade is in so much better shape than all the others ? can'\t fucking compile, right ? why would you be able to tcp/ip ?
00:18:33 mircea_popescu: and re this entire "europe suicide" bs... the eu population is half a billion. there are NOT THAT MANY PEOPLE IN ALL THE MIDDLE EAST! so a few million made it across ? big whoop. so the already marginal worthless white trash is going to have a worse time of it ? GOOD. fuck them, they took arms against their king in the name of convenience, comfort and MUUU then they earnestly expect it'll work out for them ? ha.
00:18:44 mircea_popescu: a little bit of comfort for a short interval and then oblivion. this is how nature works.

01:40:14 asciilifeform: see 'wasp' - how many maniacs does a city need running loose to stop all meaningful commerce..?
01:40:28 asciilifeform: even one can suffice.
01:41:22 asciilifeform: the particulars of the death of europe aside, the 'not so many people' thing boggles my mind. it is not unlike saying 'bullet is so small, how can an elephant die of it?!!'
01:42:34 jurov: first "wasps" from turkey arrived in germany 30 years ago . per your theory, it should lay in ruins already
01:43:40 asciilifeform: from one bullet, elephant visibly thrashed. now let's have ten.
01:45:18 asciilifeform: see also:
01:45:21 asciilifeform: !s rotherham
01:46:19 jurov: so? english lords did it, too
01:46:31 asciilifeform: which it
01:46:42 jurov: child abuse
01:46:52 jurov: and catholic teachers in ireland
01:46:52 asciilifeform: afaik they mainly 'did'... each other
01:47:01 jurov: and.. and...
01:47:23 jurov: but i guess this discussion is hopeless, goodnight
01:47:27 asciilifeform: i'll be the last to cry for the english, or for the germans, as they go into the woodchipper
01:47:47 asciilifeform: but does jurov like crossing countries off the map? at the end of the day, one has to live somewhere.
01:48:04 jurov: you do it, not me
01:48:21 asciilifeform: jurov would still agree to move to de ?
01:48:28 jurov: yes
01:48:34 *: asciilifeform takes off hat
01:50:02 mircea_popescu: im bashing rthe seaweed
01:50:38 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform what's not to get ? one would set food in the deathtraps for cunt.
01:50:40 asciilifeform: if the fish can, they must!
01:51:01 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: ah, this!
01:51:49 mircea_popescu: and the bullet thing is nonsense. immigration only hurts low status males. it helps low status females, and high status everybody.
01:51:57 mircea_popescu: fuck the low status males, who the fuck said they get anything ?
01:52:11 mircea_popescu: if they didn't suck there wouldn'\t be immigration, they'd be out there enslaving africa.
01:52:20 mircea_popescu: they wanna be orwell, that's fine BUT it comes with a dulap and anal lube.
01:52:25 asciilifeform: afaik none of the migrant folks intend to work
01:52:37 mircea_popescu: and what, the "born in germany" derps do ?
01:52:44 mircea_popescu: work at wow, maybe.
01:53:00 asciilifeform: de still has actual industry
01:53:02 asciilifeform: (unlike usa)
01:53:06 mircea_popescu: again : if they had intended to work they would be out there shooting elephants.
01:53:19 mircea_popescu: yeah, it does, on account of romania making the parts. tyvm.
01:53:38 *: asciilifeform dimly aware of this
01:53:42 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: which parts ?
01:54:02 mircea_popescu: pretty much all brake assemblages used in "european" cars made in ro.
01:54:22 asciilifeform: siemens et al make silicon.
01:54:24 mircea_popescu: iirc poland and ukr make the drive trains etc.
01:54:30 mircea_popescu: yeah, in... china.
01:54:34 asciilifeform: nope. in de.
01:54:43 mircea_popescu: for what, prototyping ?
01:54:45 asciilifeform: and, iirc, the only modern cpu plant (amd's) outside of usa proper is in de (augsburg?)
01:54:50 asciilifeform: no cpu in cn.
01:54:51 mircea_popescu: or was.
01:54:55 asciilifeform: (of the x86 variety anyway)
01:55:13 mircea_popescu: anwyay. 100k engineers and techs is not this discussion.
01:55:26 mircea_popescu: 50 mn nobodies derping about "nordic system" up and down is this discussion.
01:55:38 mircea_popescu: germany took the eastern orcs 20 years ago, what did it do ?
01:56:11 asciilifeform: they worked.
01:56:16 mircea_popescu: like hell they did.
01:56:22 mircea_popescu: ask an actual german.
01:56:44 mircea_popescu: worked with the gab.
01:57:06 *: asciilifeform actually saw'em sweeping toilets in frankfurt and munich
01:57:26 asciilifeform: turks, that is
01:57:39 mircea_popescu: turks lol. east germanz.
01:57:43 asciilifeform: ah, them
01:57:46 mircea_popescu: yes them
01:58:00 asciilifeform: those, yes, afaik, sit around being sad.
01:58:31 asciilifeform: which is not entirely the same as rotherhaming
01:58:33 mircea_popescu: how exactly is ein berliner better than شيعي ?
01:58:42 asciilifeform: he doesn't rotherham ?
01:59:07 mircea_popescu: pfff.
01:59:12 mircea_popescu: this is not better. this is worse.
01:59:43 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu sees rotherhaming as an essential public service. i don't grasp this. seems approximately as useful as locusts.
02:00:15 mircea_popescu: understand the fundaments of society : if you're confronted with a group of 100 idiot boys doing idiot shit, you go up to one of them, grab him by the hair and bash his head into a wall until he stops moving. problem solved. if however you run into a group of 100 idiot girls sitting around being weird, you rape one. problem also solved.
02:01:01 mircea_popescu: violence.
02:02:42 mircea_popescu: there is a very deep reason black communities do not have the biological collapse problem of "upscale" white communities in the same damned us state / county. no it's not "poverty" and no it's not "fuck da police".
02:02:52 mircea_popescu: it's that violence without recourse is educative.
02:05:27 asciilifeform: speaking of locusts,
02:05:29 mircea_popescu: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=03-11-2015#1314878 << lotta wishful thinking in there, of the exact sort that was supposed to be a solution for 1970s women.

02:05:35 asciilifeform: ^ found this little fella today.
02:05:41 asciilifeform: he's out of season, methinks

02:07:15 asciilifeform: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=04-11-2015#1315354 << expand on this ?

02:08:29 assbot: You have not rated zfx.
02:08:40 asciilifeform: !rate zfx 1 new blood, lisp
02:09:12 mircea_popescu: black mothers beat their children. black husbands beat their wives. brothers lay the smackdown on one another all the time, and teenaged females with overactive coyness stand a decent change to get a sweet sixteen gangbang. this all helps to maintain the society functional.

02:09:20 assbot: Successfully added a rating of 1 for zfx with note: new blood, lisp
02:09:33 mircea_popescu: people love to derp about how easter island ecological collapse is an example of this and that,
02:09:46 mircea_popescu: rarely does it occur that "this is what happens when no preditors"
02:10:28 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu posits usa city blacks as examples of 'functional' ?!!
02:10:34 mircea_popescu: yes.
02:10:44 mircea_popescu: guess what ? they have no propblem with immigration.
02:10:49 mircea_popescu: what is your definition of functional ?
02:10:49 zfx: thanks
02:11:34 mircea_popescu: it's what fucking health is. "an organism is healthy when all foreign bodies ingested are food."
02:11:44 zfx: can anyone recommend high-quality starting literature for studying electronics?
02:11:52 asciilifeform: zfx: horowitz & hill
02:12:02 zfx: got that on the way
02:12:05 mircea_popescu: electronics as what, a practical aplication ?
02:12:24 asciilifeform: zfx: but you will need basic school maths. if your education is seriously deficient, you may need forrest mims
02:12:42 zfx: well, I'm interested in some of the cpu reinvention ideas discussed here
02:13:08 mircea_popescu: L. D. Landau and E. M. Lifshitz, Electrodynamics in Continuous Media. hurr.
02:13:08 zfx: asciilifeform: how far is 'basic'?
02:13:26 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: win
02:13:37 mircea_popescu: i dunno what he's asking, what can i say.
02:14:28 asciilifeform: zfx: i must agree with mircea_popescu. thus far we have only the foggiest notion of what it is you'd like to accomplish
02:14:34 mircea_popescu: and in engluish no less.
02:14:52 zfx: asciilifeform: my lack of knowledge is somewhat robbing me of the ability to ask the right question...
02:15:12 mircea_popescu: eh, read that volume 8. can't be you're doing anything more important anyway.
02:15:27 asciilifeform: mega-recommended.
02:15:33 zfx: put it this way, I've spent a pretty long time working with software, but never dug into the hardware as far as I'd like to
02:15:46 mircea_popescu: (read, in the mathematical sense, is a specific thing. do all the work. especially the stuff towards the end of a chapter. ESPECIALLY.P)
02:15:50 zfx: certainly not far enough to read schematics and understand what I'm looking at
02:16:13 zfx: mircea_popescu: thanks, will read
02:16:53 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: perhaps surprisingly, i must take issue with the reductionist approach here. electrodynamics is to 'electronics' as fluid dynamics is to modern plumbing
02:17:02 mircea_popescu: ftr, ee without that is like jd without blackstone.
02:17:13 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform gotta start somewhere!
02:17:14 zfx: can't hurt to understand the fundamentals
02:17:30 *: asciilifeform blows dust off blackstone
02:17:42 mircea_popescu: or pr without cicero
02:17:48 mircea_popescu: or on it goes.
02:18:15 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: most of the time folks asking after 'electronics' 'just want to know' how to arrange the mosfets
02:18:22 mircea_popescu: yeah well fuck them.
02:18:31 zfx: that's not really my style
02:18:48 mircea_popescu: they wanna learn how to arrange mosfets, take a job in a tv repair shop for a summer.
02:19:05 *: asciilifeform doubts there are any discrete fets to be found in a modern tv
02:19:08 asciilifeform: but yes.
02:19:14 mircea_popescu: so go to cairo, take the job there.
02:19:28 shinohai: Guatemala still has old sets :D
02:19:33 asciilifeform: i'd expect sov. tube sets in cairo
02:19:35 *: mircea_popescu has observed person mill cylinder piston replacement by hand
02:19:37 asciilifeform: but perhaps i'm out of date
02:19:48 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: cuba?
02:19:51 mircea_popescu: cairo.
02:20:00 asciilifeform: neato
02:20:53 mircea_popescu: now i regret not buying them a tea
02:21:32 asciilifeform: re: cylinder, it is the lapping rather than the milling that is the tricky bit
02:24:24 mircea_popescu: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=03-11-2015#1315017 << with one million gallons of fuel. what ?

02:24:48 mircea_popescu: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=03-11-2015#1315024 << yep.
02:24:48 assbot: Logged on 03-11-2015 20:17:49; ascii_field: or that if a million russians wanted to move in and rape, pillage, there would be the same welcome ?
02:24:48 asciilifeform: consult, e.g., the memoirs of one douglas mcarthur.
02:24:53 mircea_popescu: not "if". was there, saw that.
02:25:31 mircea_popescu: heck, the only reason putin can't get rid of the underworld like stalin did is PRECISELY that back in stalin's day they'd have been shot, but these days... welcomed.
02:25:43 asciilifeform: so nato is a scam ?
02:25:49 asciilifeform: somebody tell jurov.
02:25:49 mircea_popescu: dude seriously.
02:25:53 mircea_popescu: how could it NOT be a scam ?
02:26:04 mircea_popescu: you know romania had better guarantees, in writing, than nato is ?
02:26:05 mircea_popescu: TWICE
02:26:34 mircea_popescu: somehow it was "defeated" both times, notwithstanding that fuck you, bunch of idiots, you don't show up as per deal and then bitch about it five years later ?
02:26:58 mircea_popescu: poland got nearly wiped, on the strength of the same scam, also twice.
02:27:32 mircea_popescu: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=03-11-2015#1315028 << the orcs are accepted because if you don't fuck your wife, someone will.

02:27:52 mircea_popescu: end of fucking story, no usg enters into any of it. binary choice, pick one : ( ) man ; ( ) boy.
02:28:01 asciilifeform: and if you don't burn down the church, someone else will ?
02:28:19 mircea_popescu: pretty much.
02:28:27 mircea_popescu: either you burn theirs or they burn yours.
02:28:34 asciilifeform: now this, yes.
02:28:46 mircea_popescu: for as long as italians aren't dropping nerve gas on eritrea,
02:28:56 asciilifeform: 'paris eats couscous'
02:28:57 mircea_popescu: eritreans will be going to rome.
02:29:30 asciilifeform: put in this notation, it is smashingly obvious.
02:29:37 mircea_popescu: mkthen.
02:30:18 mircea_popescu: and bitching notwithstanding, i will point out that this "send the women naked butt first" approach is so far working a lot better than the "we will resist behind the walls of vienna" 1100s stuff.
02:30:20 asciilifeform: iirc they dropped mustard gas
02:30:21 asciilifeform: but yes.
02:30:26 mircea_popescu: arguably a larger migratory wave than that one
02:30:39 mircea_popescu: (recall my discussion of china and how it keeps creating these waves that smash europe ?)
02:30:54 asciilifeform: aha.
02:31:10 mircea_popescu: that's the deep driver here. the us isn't even on the map.
02:31:23 mircea_popescu: china is strongly centralizing again, the nomads are going west.
02:31:32 mircea_popescu: pushing western tribes further west
02:31:48 asciilifeform: as i understand, cn is only involved in the sense that it is impervious to the usg orc-pushing current
02:31:49 mircea_popescu: at least this time they don't have a leader. yet they are very well connected.
02:31:55 mircea_popescu: which is why the politruks are so affraid to move.
02:32:02 mircea_popescu: god fucking help the lot if they do actually get a leader.
02:32:22 mircea_popescu: 100 man "special forces" teams are impressive on tv, owing to the poor quality of the camera as a perception mechanism.
02:32:35 mircea_popescu: but otherwise, the us got wiped, by a smaller force.

02:34:42 mircea_popescu: herpy derp. the us couldn't recruit 5 of those.

02:34:51 asciilifeform: (though it may well have been cn who airdropped brand new ipnohes)
02:35:08 mircea_popescu: dude. the pakis pushed west.
02:35:35 mircea_popescu: who the fuck do you think flattened syria if not a bunch of hardcore dudes that have been training against the "coallition" scarecrows for a decade ?
02:36:21 mircea_popescu: they don't wanna live in rome, they wanna live in lebanon. they don't like your women, they like those.
02:36:28 mircea_popescu: because much less shit to explain, they mostly get it.
02:37:16 asciilifeform: but in rome/berlin/stockholm there is payola.
02:37:19 mircea_popescu: "isis" is a conveyor belt. it reduces tectonics by moving people west.
02:37:26 mircea_popescu: fuck the payola. you think pashtun wants it ?!
02:37:30 asciilifeform: sure he does.

14:13:08 trinque: mircea_popescu: in my logs, deedbot's btcd eventually disconnected from 184.108.40.206 and began receiving orphan blocks again. after restarting it, it reconnected to your node and is receiving blocks normally again
14:13:13 *: trinque is very suspicious
14:13:24 fluffypony: "32 people died (and a lot more in critical condition) because of a fire in a club last Friday. The problem is that the the local authorities allowed that club to function without even the most basic fire-precaution measures, which essentially led to the fire and that many victims (150 injured and as i said before quite a few in critical condition). With a bit of a bribe you can do anything in Romania."
14:18:49 shinohai: @ fluffypony yeah I just noticed mircea_popescu home country was having a chimpout wow xD

14:33:41 fluffypony: lol
14:34:09 mircea_popescu: shinohai here's the problem : explain to me that you are defending "traditional marriage" aka "between a man or a woman" ~for the principle of the thing~ but not at the same time "traditional marriage" aka "the husband can take it whenever he feels like". they're both the same thing.

14:39:24 solrodar: it would be acceptable for bitbet to destroy it by sending it somewhere provably unspendable, but not to keep it for themselves
14:40:06 mircea_popescu: solrodar the problem with precedent and rule based systems is that you don't know what will happen until it actually happens. i would guess what would happen here would be the bet gets cancelled and so the nos get their btc back too, and perhaps the ability of bet starter to create that clause gets curtailed.

17:57:36 asciilifeform: to make tourist resorts ?
17:57:42 pete_dushenski: superficial politicians want to pretend to matter ?
17:57:53 asciilifeform: pete_dushenski: 'so that we would ask'
17:58:04 asciilifeform: pete_dushenski: it's fist-in-the-face psyops
17:58:16 kakobrekla: still better than eu.
17:59:07 asciilifeform: pete_dushenski: there also a basic trick involved. when you repaint the opposition as 'criminal', it can then be dealt with using police methods, which are cheaper than black bag work
18:00:32 pete_dushenski: seems more like 'we can achieve 90% compliance with 10% effort just by scaring derps into submission'
18:00:34 asciilifeform: and for every brian micon that needs to be tried for 'illegal bitcoining' you have 1,001 schmucks who were afraid to even read about it because 'they log my packetz'
18:00:42 asciilifeform: aha.
18:01:13 pete_dushenski: i've even seen this at usg 'green building' trade shows.
18:01:22 asciilifeform: if mircea_popescu were awake, he would probably say that none of this matters worth a damn
18:01:30 asciilifeform: but i'm not convinced. consider the case of chemistry
18:01:32 pete_dushenski: 'don't bring electric power tools because not green!' 'uhhh fuck you'
18:01:40 asciilifeform: which more or less died out as a scientific field in the 'civilized' world.
18:01:53 asciilifeform: (and was never really a thing in the 'uncivilized' - what does a pashtun need it for?)
18:03:34 pete_dushenski: i'd argue that this type of posturing ~does~ matter in the sense that it's a further wedge between ( ) boys and ( ) men
18:04:07 pete_dushenski: if anything, it'll push a few maybe neithers off the fence towards manhood
18:04:17 pete_dushenski: not a bad thing imo
18:04:31 asciilifeform: what, in this case, is 'manhood' ?
18:04:46 asciilifeform: cleaning kalash in kandahar with own piss every morning between goat fucks ?
18:05:02 pete_dushenski: not being afraid of pieces of paper = manhood
18:05:26 pete_dushenski: at least those issued by 'elected politicians'
18:05:29 pete_dushenski: contracts

18:22:24 lobbes: 'definitelynotisis.com'
18:22:32 *: asciilifeform sadly contemplates unplugging the thing entirely
18:24:46 lobbes: !up thestringpuller
18:24:55 pete_dushenski: asciilifeform: don't let them scare you !
18:25:05 thestringpuller: asciilifeform: you gonna let the USG force you to shut down your node?
18:25:27 asciilifeform: nah i'll wait till they shoot me and cart it off themselves.
18:26:14 thestringpuller: that's the spirit!
18:26:31 Namworld: In case anyone missed it yesterday, someone is looking to sell 20% of Coinroll
18:27:40 asciilifeform: i insist on being shot for high treason rather than for somehow associating with spamming scum.
18:27:51 pete_dushenski: Namworld: is 'someone' in the wot ?
18:28:13 asciilifeform: perhaps if tlp were here, he might cry narcissism.
18:29:21 pete_dushenski: we'll point him to the log entry when he arrives
18:31:40 asciilifeform: i suppose this is a good time to point out that i fucking hate common criminals who lack the brains or elementary decency to make themselves any kind of hard target
18:31:45 asciilifeform: they are the fodder on which usg lives.
18:31:51 asciilifeform: and cultivates for its sustenance.
18:32:28 asciilifeform: there are precious few creatures upon satan's green earth more loathesome than the common spammer.
18:32:50 mike_c: jurov: you still own part of coinroll?
18:32:53 asciilifeform: the very examples of the 'disposable males overdue for the meatgrinder' as portrayed in mircea_popescu's articles.
18:33:38 Namworld: jurov does, as well as wao, as well as me. But none of us is selling.
18:34:05 Namworld: The sale will have to go through jurov & wao anyway
18:35:27 pete_dushenski: !gettrust wao

18:35:29 jurov: right
18:36:23 mike_c: You each have 20%? Are these "voting" shares or silent-partner type?
18:36:30 asciilifeform: pete_dushenski, thestringpuller: the reason i was considering ~not~ keeping a node on my desk is the realization that, if this kind of thing carries on, it cannot really be considered a respectable node.
18:36:57 kakobrekla: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=04-11-2015#1315891 < missed this; i had a few unrelated gigs which allowed me to be free but not rich
18:36:57 assbot: Logged on 04-11-2015 17:29:23; pete_dushenski: kakobrekla: and what did you do pre-btc ?
18:37:41 asciilifeform: kakobrekla was then rich
18:37:44 asciilifeform: per my standards.
18:38:01 kakobrekla: barrel rich.
18:38:13 pete_dushenski: kakobrekla: no worries, i thought mebbe it was sooper sekrit. but really, no finance background ?
18:38:50 pete_dushenski: u.s. 'hood rich' = e.u. 'barrel rich'
18:39:10 kakobrekla: no, no finance background.
18:42:09 Namworld: No, we don't all have 20%. And these are non-voting shares
18:43:11 Namworld: Although jurov and wao will consider any input/advice you give, they take the decisions.
18:45:42 ben_vulpes: Namworld: it's painful to watch people dragging these details out of you. is there a signed operating agreement in place people can look at somewhere?
18:45:43 asciilifeform: ;;later tell mircea_popescu what is the proper defence against getting 'shremmed' ?
18:45:43 gribble: The operation succeeded.
18:46:23 ben_vulpes: pete_dushenski has it with the elusive negation
18:47:01 jurov: ben_vulpes there is not anything gpg signed. there was agreement with scrat, but he went mia
18:47:32 ben_vulpes: oh jeez.
18:47:41 jurov: we will draft it if anyone has serious interest
18:48:04 ben_vulpes: well i'm not but damn this is going to be an expensive price discovery exercise without contracts.
18:49:56 ben_vulpes: everyone's in the wot (right?) so it should work itself out eventually, but this is an interesting example of how gpgconomy works in contrast to the fiat contracting system.
18:50:13 *: asciilifeform would like input from his WoT re: what is the correct thing to do with obvious usg honeytrapping as described earlier.
18:50:37 ben_vulpes: yes, you're all in the wot, so no need for contracts, they're unenforceable anyways. that said, without formalized business relationships, pricing the paper's...complicated.
18:50:58 pete_dushenski: jurov: my guess is that your approach is backwards. should have gpg signed statement FIRST, then serious interest follows
18:50:59 ben_vulpes: like how many non voting shares? how many voting shares? who can issue more shares, and under what conditions?
18:51:13 jurov: no shares
18:51:21 jurov: but you're right
18:51:41 ben_vulpes: and that's just 3 questions that should be wrapped up neatly in the operating agreement.
18:53:10 ben_vulpes: asciilifeform: keep 'em.
18:53:15 kakobrekla: asciilifeform but does usg really need to honeytrap ? as far as i get it, there is no need for such customs.
18:53:19 pete_dushenski: "Magnets keep all your computer equipment in place, and it moves with you as you change positions. So even while you recline, your monitor and keyboard are proportionally placed for you to continue working." << re: altwork thingie. fuck magnets. give me screws and anchors !
18:53:20 asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: shrem.
18:53:34 ben_vulpes: asciilifeform: how does shrem relate?
18:54:21 mike_c: he went to jail?
18:54:25 asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: usg algo is, as i understand: 1) pick a fella who needs to have problems 2) steer known scum to his $thing 3) have it be established that he knows of (2) 4) pick him up as a thieves' fence
18:55:01 kakobrekla: i thought it was 1) pick up the fella 2) fuck him up
18:55:04 ben_vulpes: what precisely is your concern, though? relaying of 3vil t3rrist txns?
18:55:20 pete_dushenski: asciilifeform: solution : go kazcynski on their ass
18:55:31 asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: the 'card-ok' fella insisted on being obvious as daylight
18:55:32 ben_vulpes: shrem was out and out breaking the law
18:55:43 asciilifeform: and i doubt that he ended up on my box by pure accident.
18:55:48 kakobrekla: but anyway, if you dont feel like running a node from home, you should not do it.
18:55:51 asciilifeform: (it is not an ultra-high-bandwidth node)
18:55:56 asciilifeform: problem is that i fucking need a node.
18:56:24 asciilifeform: and i don't own an impregnable castle where i can leave a machine going.
18:56:28 pete_dushenski: obligatory kaczynski http://www.contravex.com/2015/07/03/hits-and-misses-of-ted-the-unabomber-kaczynski/
18:57:32 ben_vulpes: asciilifeform: how did you get from mocking "omg my packetz" to "omg my packetz"?
18:57:40 *: pete_dushenski off to the races. ciao !
18:59:57 asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: partly it is because i have a personal hatred of ph0rum sp4mz0r l337 d00dz
19:01:05 asciilifeform: they bring usg with them wherever they go. the way rats bring plague.
19:02:55 ben_vulpes: so boot 'em
19:03:08 ben_vulpes: that's a sane argument
19:03:43 Namworld: There's no share, just a stake in %. No share dilution as of now. Dilution could appear in the form of allowing investments on the site like other dice site where you can stake the bankroll. Although this would in no way be absolute/permanent.
19:03:55 asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: prolly gonna turn this thing into a gossipd-style whitelisted node soon.
19:04:22 asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: aside from stoolies, stooges, and other vermin, i elementarily lack the bandwidth to service the demand (and there is now again - demand)
19:04:46 asciilifeform: but i will also note, when mircea_popescu tells us 'get the everliving fuck out of usa' he has perfectly good reasons for this.
19:04:50 Namworld: Not sure how the transfer would be done, but I'm sure jurov and wao will sign both payment address and amount for the offer and agreement of share ownership upon payment.
19:07:01 Namworld: As for Coinroll's stats and data, it's always been available publicly for download.
19:11:53 ben_vulpes: Namworld: I'm sure you see the problem with statements-in-the-log-as-operating-agreement
19:13:00 ben_vulpes: asciilifeform: neat! ganbatte.
19:14:00 Namworld: Yes, that's why am saying it can all be signed properly prior to purchase occuring.
19:14:23 Namworld: I just wanted to let it known as I don't think that other guy advertised it around much.
19:25:20 kakobrekla: asciilifeform if not sekrit, which hw raid cards do you use/like?
19:25:54 asciilifeform: kakobrekla: pretty old '3ware'
19:26:11 *: kakobrekla currently fuming over hp p410
19:26:36 asciilifeform: the old-fashioned kind, with 64-bit pci (not pcie)
19:26:46 asciilifeform: pretty cheap secondhand, too.
19:26:51 kakobrekla: myea
19:27:23 asciilifeform: configured with an open source command line thing
19:27:32 asciilifeform: can also flash in own fw if you have a favourite.
19:29:15 *: asciilifeform fucking hates 'software raid' in any and all forms
19:30:55 asciilifeform: incidentally hardware raid utterly annihilates (if used correctly - that is, for striping rather than mirroring) all known and unknown 'hdd firmware diddles'
19:31:27 asciilifeform: this is, naturally, at the cost of introducing another closed turd boot rom.
19:31:35 asciilifeform: BUT the latter is an x86 blob and is trivially disassembled
19:31:37 asciilifeform: unlike hdd fw.
19:32:17 asciilifeform: i made the tradeoff with the full understanding that it was a tradeoff.
19:38:56 asciilifeform: https://www.rt.com/op-edge/320651-germany-refugees-crisis-bavaria << lulzy. esp. for jurov.

19:40:22 jurov: please find anything other than rt. anything.
19:40:49 jurov: even xinhua is miles better than rt
19:40:50 asciilifeform: jurov: largely consists of twatter screencaps
19:41:04 asciilifeform: of course it is possible that putin personally fakes these, aha.
19:42:03 asciilifeform: jurov: this kind of thing is arranged every time usg needs to ban another type of gun.
19:54:05 asciilifeform: 'After weeks of waiting to get registered with Berlin authorities, a group of refugees and migrants have sued Berlin?s main refugee center for failing to grant their asylum benefits on time, which they were promised when Germany took them in.' << lulz
20:09:46 trinque: asciilifeform: along the lines of the problems with your node, deedbot- now routinely gets orphans and nothing else blasted at it from various IPs, and will at times not be able to reach the node mircea_popescu gave, though I am not presently certain why
20:10:03 trinque: currently it is trying to catch up from the last orphan ass blasting by feeding from mp's node
20:11:27 trinque: and I have given that IP via -connect which unfortunately will keep it from being of use to anyone else
20:13:17 trinque: two things there: one I think I will begin looking into the connect vs addnode tangle this weekend, as it's affecting the proper functioning of the deedbot-
20:13:41 trinque: and two, I would like to move the hosting of the thing off AWS if anyone can recommend a friendlier host
20:14:13 trinque: it would not be surprising to me at all that Amazon obediently fucks with the thing from within
20:21:29 trinque: also, I span up bitcoind-0.5.4-beta last night and it began gagging on orphan blocks around 150k
20:21:41 trinque: this was from a home connection.
20:22:16 trinque: that one I'll restart later and see how it fares.
20:22:43 trinque: if the walls have eyes, the tubes have apparently grown fingers
20:45:34 asciilifeform: trinque: you are probably being blackholes.
20:45:37 asciilifeform: *blackholed
20:45:52 punkman: *cornholed
20:47:05 asciilifeform: trinque: as for hosts, unfortunately i cannot recommend anything at all.
20:47:17 asciilifeform: other than - possibly - mircea_popescu's coming-soon thing
20:47:23 asciilifeform: supposing that it comes, and works
20:47:33 asciilifeform: but it is likely to be expensive.
20:48:47 trinque: it is munching on the IP from mp successfully for now
20:51:33 ben_vulpes: i suspect that the operational protocol must be "one node for the network, one node for infrastructure"
20:52:22 ben_vulpes: eg if you want to run a node for infrastructure, you should -connect it to a synced node -addnode'd to the network at large.
20:55:57 trinque: really needs the wotnet to function properly, and this still doesn't fix black holing, just mitm
20:56:09 trinque: needs wotnet-radio
20:58:37 ben_vulpes: i'm still kindastonished the thing never had encrypted connections.
21:00:00 ben_vulpes: funkenstein_: your ip is leaking
21:01:06 asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: how do you do encrypted connections without gossipd ?
21:01:16 trinque: ben_vulpes: I'm glad the guy didn't just bolt ssl to the thing
21:01:18 trinque: could've
21:01:25 asciilifeform: trinque: hearn did !
21:01:40 trinque: big surprise
21:02:15 punkman: can ssh tunnel to trusted nodes
21:02:57 asciilifeform: people do this, yes.
21:02:57 funkenstein_: thx. happy V day all
21:05:09 funkenstein_: trinque: I don't know who they are but i have had some luck with bitcoincloud.eu vps
21:05:48 asciilifeform: if anybody's gonna 'obediently fucks with the thing from within' it'll be a bitcoin-themed isp from somewhere far outside the wot.

21:16:59 asciilifeform: from the commentz: 'Why not honeytrap the honeytrappers with hidden audio/video recording devices? They might be illegal to use without consent in your jurisdiction, but then you need not reveal the recordings until you need to, and I don?t think ?Arrest him for illegally recording evidence that proves my rape allegation was fake!? would fly.'
