00:00:04 mircea_popescu: by its very nature this is a rare occurence, best handled by exceptional means

00:00:13 mircea_popescu: a protocol is exactly the opposite of exceptional means.

00:00:20 herbijudlestoids: lets say iv hired you to be my security consultant then

00:00:23 herbijudlestoids: what would you suggest i do

00:00:30 herbijudlestoids: i give you the requirement, you must meet it, or not get paid.

00:00:37 lippoper: we only talk in person

00:00:42 mircea_popescu: on the data so far i'd suggest you get laid ?

00:00:43 herbijudlestoids: lippoper: i didnt hire you

00:00:49 lippoper: leave all electronics behind ;-)

00:00:50 BingoBoingo: herbijudlestoids: Who really doesn't matter. My "anonymity" is merely at the behest of polite requests to people who could confirm otherwise. Who talks to who is always difficult to hide. Focus on hiding the subject and the message.

00:00:55 asciilifeform: anyone who goes, 'i want crypto!' without some idea of the actual problem he is trying to solve, is in an advanced state of sin.

00:00:55 mircea_popescu: i mean... i still dunno what you're trying to accomplish. talk to the entire world secretly ?

00:01:04 lippoper: Well, that's your first problem ;-)

00:01:23 herbijudlestoids: no

00:01:38 mircea_popescu: so you are trying to talk to identified entity X without anyone but X knowing it's you talking to them ?

00:01:45 BingoBoingo: If everything abut you is secret you get ignored.

00:01:45 herbijudlestoids: yes.

00:01:51 mircea_popescu: is X friendly or hostile ?

00:01:56 herbijudlestoids: X is friendly

00:02:08 BingoBoingo: What is X is incredibly hostile?

00:02:11 lippoper: what about Y?

00:02:17 BingoBoingo: You just don't know it yet.

00:02:26 mircea_popescu: fine, call in to radio shows, have a modem buzzing in the background.

00:02:29 asciilifeform: if X is hostile, then anything X knows, the enemy learns immediately.

00:02:32 mircea_popescu: have them listen to radio shows

00:02:36 mircea_popescu: worked just fine in ww2.

00:02:41 BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Bingo

00:02:59 herbijudlestoids: BingoBoingo: thanks for adding some useless lines to the convo

00:03:10 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform the q was to see if it's during or post delivery that the threat begins

00:03:39 herbijudlestoids: mircea_popescu: the requirement is to talk over the internet

00:03:46 mircea_popescu: herbijudlestoids my general point here being that once you yielded to the adversary the identification of the channel,

00:03:52 mircea_popescu: you've already lost most of the battle.

00:03:56 mircea_popescu: keep the channel secret in your model.

00:03:59 BingoBoingo: herbijudlestoids: Imma just adding further reading. Sometimes the noise between the lines can have meaning. Even if it isn't obvious in your particular use case as you imagine.

00:04:29 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [B.SELL] 2 @ 0.109 = 0.218 BTC [+]

00:04:38 herbijudlestoids: mircea_popescu: but i have not identified the channel

00:04:45 mircea_popescu: uh.

00:04:47 herbijudlestoids: all they could possibly know is that im using i2p

00:05:04 asciilifeform: steganography is an actual field, anyone for whom traffic analysis is more than an academic puzzle would do well to learn the basics;

00:05:06 herbijudlestoids: there could be a jabber server, irc server, even direct i2p-tunnel messages...

00:05:10 asciilifeform: but it is by its very nature non-standardizable.

00:05:11 BingoBoingo: i2p makes tor look easy.

00:05:44 mircea_popescu: herbijudlestoids so you're trying to gain some destandardization back. already a step in the right direction, but why do it this windows style.

00:05:49 mircea_popescu: just don't standardize i nthe first place.

00:05:58 herbijudlestoids: not sure what you mean

00:06:20 herbijudlestoids: what im saying is i can walk into the city, reaver a WPS pin, login using tails and communicate over irc/jabber/whatever over i2p

00:06:25 herbijudlestoids: how is the channel known

00:06:26 mircea_popescu: well i have the converse problem : not sure how to make it clearer.

00:07:23 herbijudlestoids: dear diary: today i hired mircea_popescu as a security consultant, and he told me to magically contact my counterpart to let them know they need to listen to eadio on certain frequency at certain time

00:07:32 asciilifeform: standardized stego (e.g. 'let's all encode messages in the lowest color bit of lolcat photos) is about as useful as the practice of hiding your house key under the door mat.

00:07:56 mircea_popescu: herbijudlestoids this is a decent point, in that you'll both need to be on the same page.

00:08:09 mircea_popescu: there's a long distance from this to making "a meta-protective protocol" tho.

00:08:19 mircea_popescu: just finish each message with "next message in the form of lolcats"

00:08:23 mircea_popescu: again, worked fine in ww2.

00:08:35 BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Twist in the plot: key under the rug can't withstand the torque necessary to turn the lock and breaks inside...

00:08:52 herbijudlestoids: mircea_popescu: these are literally the problems OTR was designed to solve lol

00:09:13 asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: grenade sans pin with the spoon held down by the rug, if you like.

00:09:15 herbijudlestoids: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socialist_millionaire

00:09:17 ozbot: Socialist millionaire - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

00:10:31 BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: I an imagining less explosions, but kind of yes. Sabotaged key under the rug that is both useless and leaves a trace of attempts at its use.

00:11:03 mircea_popescu: herbijudlestoids otr protects your meta-data now ?

00:11:14 mircea_popescu: i gues in the sense of no signatures...

00:11:27 asciilifeform: herbijudlestoids: what problem would you actually like to solve? that is, what is the portrait of the enemy? and what is to be protected?

00:11:41 herbijudlestoids: asciilifeform: i cant really tell you that

00:11:47 asciilifeform: no need to be specific

00:11:53 asciilifeform: just generalities

00:11:57 herbijudlestoids: the problem i would like to solve, is very very simple

00:12:03 asciilifeform: e.g. 'nsa' and 'warez'

00:12:34 herbijudlestoids: there is another geek, somewhere on the internet. we work on a project together. if someone wanted to attack that project, the easiest way would be to find out who ran it

00:12:45 herbijudlestoids: we need to talk...maybe once a month or less...

00:12:48 herbijudlestoids: over the internet.

00:12:54 asciilifeform: talk in real time?

00:12:57 herbijudlestoids: yes.

00:13:07 mircea_popescu: i doubt otr actually covers this case.

00:13:18 herbijudlestoids: it has to be impossible for anyone to ever use those communicatoins to find out who is running the project.

00:13:31 herbijudlestoids: mircea_popescu: i told you like 50 times we are using OTR to encrypt conversations that take place over i2p

00:13:32 mircea_popescu: if for no other reason then because it is probably feasible for the adversary to build a list of people and then cross names off

00:13:43 mircea_popescu: they won't KNOW it's you, they will however know it's none of the other schmucks.

00:13:57 mircea_popescu: they can take place over the naked body of mary.

00:15:01 BingoBoingo: herbijudlestoids: Why not turtle routing if it is only two known parties that can exchange credentials in person?

00:15:17 asciilifeform: it depends on what the project is. if it's a lamecoin, it could be 10,000 schmucks. if it's a working TWINKLE, your name is shamir and they already know where you live.

00:15:48 herbijudlestoids: i dunno what a twinkle is, but my name is sina, so close enough :P

00:16:09 herbijudlestoids: BingoBoingo: explain?

00:16:12 asciilifeform: http://www.ussrback.com/crypto/rsa/TWINKLE/twinkle.html

00:16:20 herbijudlestoids: ah F2F

00:16:42 herbijudlestoids: if i wanted F2F i would use gnunet, but i want intermediary nodes to take the traffic load, i dont want to talk directly to the counterparts IP

00:17:03 BingoBoingo: herbijudlestoids: Turtle routing is kind of like i2p except the assumption exists you actually know and meat/meet everyone you connect to.

00:17:26 herbijudlestoids: yeah...no...i would likely use the gnunet for F2F comms

00:17:38 herbijudlestoids: asciilifeform: it is not a working TWINKLE :)

00:17:41 asciilifeform: herbijudlestoids: is cost a constraint?

00:17:56 asciilifeform: because if it isn't, you can stuff bytes in the btc block chain.

00:18:00 herbijudlestoids: haha

00:18:18 herbijudlestoids: why on earth would i persist OTR conversations into the blockchain

00:18:25 mircea_popescu: and if it is, you can stuff bytes in altcoin block chain.

00:18:43 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [MS] 4000 @ 0.005 = 20 BTC

00:18:44 asciilifeform: agree on public keys, and encrypt

00:18:51 asciilifeform: the agreement only needs to happen once

00:19:06 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform by the way : have you considered this is probably a major driver for the altcoins ? do some secret messaging, in ten years nobody will exist with a copy of the blockchain anyway

00:19:06 herbijudlestoids: i definitely do not want to persist anything in any blockchain!

00:19:41 asciilifeform: herbijudlestoids: assume that every packet you send over the public net gets 'persisted' regardless of whether you asked for it

00:19:42 herbijudlestoids: lel you guys crack me up

00:19:44 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [B.SELL] 1 @ 0.1099 BTC [+]

00:19:45 mircea_popescu: herbijudlestoids your notion that stuff going through the internet is ephemeral boggles me :D

00:19:55 mircea_popescu: shit, beaten to it again

00:20:00 mircea_popescu: i gotta learn to touchtype already.

00:20:04 herbijudlestoids: asciilifeform: i make that assumption, but i why would i WILLINGLY persist something in the blockchain

00:20:16 mircea_popescu: because it's better to fuck willingly than to get fucked ?

00:20:34 asciilifeform: because this way 10,000 lamers are all equal candidates for the inquisition, for having said packets on disk

00:20:34 mircea_popescu: at least in some people's estimation.

00:21:05 herbijudlestoids: asciilifeform: in that case i would always use freenet, but i dont want persistence and prefer 10,000 lamers to have the packets in their NIC than on their disk.

00:21:06 BingoBoingo: I wonder if anti-Zyprexa exists...

00:21:38 herbijudlestoids: BingoBoingo: you want a psychotic inducer?

00:22:09 mircea_popescu: acid prolly works...

00:22:12 BingoBoingo: herbijudlestoids: Not exactly

00:22:25 BingoBoingo: More like a complacency relaxer

00:22:41 herbijudlestoids: so you want to increase your motivation?

00:22:43 herbijudlestoids: try l-tyrosine

00:22:48 herbijudlestoids: catecholamine precursor.

00:23:33 asciilifeform: herbijudlestoids: i'm feeling generous, have an example:

00:24:31 herbijudlestoids: asciilifeform: thanks for your generosity i guess, what is this?

00:24:33 mircea_popescu: pretty good shit.

00:24:39 mircea_popescu: you people and your synthetic helpers.

00:25:07 asciilifeform: and http://pastebin.com/Uw9syzhV

00:25:07 herbijudlestoids: i dont take any synthetics, l-tyrosine is a metabolic precursor you can easily obtain from food :)

00:25:26 BingoBoingo: I only brought Zyprexa up, because Vitamin H would have been too obvious...

00:26:56 asciilifeform: herbijudlestoids: recipe, for stowing four octets in the blockchain.

00:27:05 BingoBoingo: herbijudlestoids: If you want catecholamine precursors though Lima/Fava beans work just fine

00:27:09 herbijudlestoids: asciilifeform: ah right. thx...i appreciate the gesture :)

00:27:52 herbijudlestoids: BingoBoingo: um, no, the beans contain L-DOPA which is an acute dopamine precursor, l-tyrosine is much more effective and less acute, precursor to all catecholamines

00:27:56 ThickAsThieves: fava beans are the best beans

00:28:41 BingoBoingo: herbijudlestoids: Your chemistry isn't wrong, but it is missing 4 steps and 9 pathways.

00:28:53 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 29031 @ 0.00093295 = 27.0845 BTC [-] {2}

00:29:29 BingoBoingo: Also there is no such thing is an acute precursor unless you want to talk prodrugs like codeine

00:30:18 ThickAsThieves: lol

00:30:24 herbijudlestoids: BingoBoingo: i mean acute as in relative to l-tyrosine

00:30:35 herbijudlestoids: same way that 5-htp versus l-tryptophan

00:31:08 BingoBoingo: herbijudlestoids: I think you read pharmacology equivalents to the National Enquirer a bit too much.

00:31:16 asciilifeform: herbijudlestoids: four octets ought to be a roomy enough 'dead drop' for anyone

00:31:32 herbijudlestoids: asciilifeform: dead drop is not my requirement

00:31:48 asciilifeform: dead drop can tell the friendly forces where to find whatever.

00:32:05 herbijudlestoids: BingoBoingo: im not a neuroscientist, but i did used to work at the largest neuroscience research facility in australia. consider my knowledge on the topic a poor carbon copy

00:32:07 BingoBoingo: herbijudlestoids: 5-HTP is mostly a precusor of things that aren't catecholamines anyway

00:32:30 BingoBoingo: herbijudlestoids: I haven't taken a bio class since 7th grade.

00:32:38 herbijudlestoids: BingoBoingo: you misunderstand, i was referring to 5-htp being a direct serotonin precursor (equiv of L-DOPA for dopamine) and l-tryptophan being broader/less acute

00:33:35 asciilifeform: serotonin more or less stops at the blood-brain barrier, so 5-htp just annoys your liver.

00:33:42 herbijudlestoids: 5-htp is the l-dopa of serotonin...is what i meant

00:33:51 BingoBoingo: herbijudlestoids: But in vitro most 5-HTP becomes various histamines as opposed to becoming serotinin.

00:34:18 herbijudlestoids: who cares about in vitro

00:34:23 herbijudlestoids: i am talking about when you eat it

00:34:25 herbijudlestoids: in vivo

00:34:37 BingoBoingo: 5-HTP generallyis dangerous because it is a histamine precursor rather than a serotonin precursor.

00:35:01 BingoBoingo: herbijudlestoids: Well, I'm not in the habit of cutting vexual open.

00:35:14 herbijudlestoids: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/2357555

00:35:21 ozbot: Striatal dopamine terminals release serotonin afte... [Brain Res. 1990] - PubMed - NCBI

00:35:26 herbijudlestoids: "Peripheral administration of 5-hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) to rats causes 'wet dog' shakes and a parallel elevation of brain serotonin (5-HT) levels. "

00:36:31 BingoBoingo: And nicotinic receptor inhibitors like succicholine cause paralasis.

00:37:11 BingoBoingo: Most serotogenic receptors from the five documented families happen in the bowels.

00:37:15 herbijudlestoids: we have come a long way from your question of wanting to remove complacency

00:37:30 herbijudlestoids: i suggested something to increase endogenous adrenaline and dopamine together.

00:37:33 herbijudlestoids: my 2c :)

00:37:35 BingoBoingo: herbijudlestoids: And now we are talking about shit.

00:37:59 mircea_popescu: http://25.media.tumblr.com/02d74622f0955143cb0d95a07d983fec/tumblr_mfoxk60OCb1ru15g3o1_1280.jpg

00:38:03 mircea_popescu: meanwhile irl...

00:38:23 BingoBoingo: herbijudlestoids: The thing is meth can do that cheaper. Combine meth and an MAOI and you can do it fast and incredibly cheap with incredible safety.

00:38:39 BingoBoingo: Tits

00:39:09 ThickAsThieves: 850

00:39:17 cazalla: that zyprexa link.. why would a 6 year old be on that

00:39:37 cazalla: and what type of parent would give consent

00:39:49 herbijudlestoids: lel if you think meth + MAOI removes complacency

00:39:56 asciilifeform: in what universe is 'meth' cheap?

00:40:01 herbijudlestoids: cazalla: US Big Pharma influenced doctors :)

00:40:04 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [B.SELL] 1 @ 0.11 BTC [+]

00:40:13 mircea_popescu: cazalla no need for parental consent in the us.

00:40:31 herbijudlestoids: cazalla: they go to a conference, there is big pharma salespeople there, there is other doctors who were paid by big pharma to do studies, et

00:40:54 BingoBoingo: herbijudlestoids: You know we only whack you because we like you.

00:40:59 BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Missouri

00:41:18 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform what, it is cheap. cheapest thing on the street.

00:41:20 herbijudlestoids: mircea_popescu: why is that lady naked?

00:41:33 herbijudlestoids: she seems out of place

00:41:42 herbijudlestoids: BingoBoingo: <3

00:41:44 asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: i think you misunderstand. e.g. an AK-47 is 'cheap', if you're a Pashtun. but say you're a Brit.

00:42:19 herbijudlestoids: BingoBoingo: this is the first irc chan that i have hung out in since probly 2010...should give you a clue :)

00:42:21 mircea_popescu: no, it's cheap. go to wherever the homeless gather where you live and ask.

00:42:24 asciilifeform: then you pay 10x, and roll in the cost of lawyers, bribes, etc. if you're found out.

00:42:47 cazalla: herbijudlestoids: i know how it works but it's just shocking a 6 year old would be taking it, my dad takes a small dose to manage his schizophrenia and it did wonders for him but still, a 6 year old?

00:42:56 mircea_popescu: it's like the altchain of drugs, every fuckwit can cook it.

00:43:04 herbijudlestoids: cazalla: profit margins yo, they must be kept up

00:43:09 asciilifeform: the basic formula for black market cost is 'Quod licet Iovi, non licet bovi'

00:43:17 benkay: translation?

00:43:19 mircea_popescu: cazalla that drug cost a 100 mn to create and 5 bn to market.

00:43:27 asciilifeform: esp. now that 'silk road' is done

00:43:33 mircea_popescu: you think that can be paid off on the backs of the five hundred old people with an actual need for it ?

00:43:34 herbijudlestoids: cazalla: if your marketing strategy is so successful that it encompasses the entire 21-65yo spectrum...what do you do? expand the market ;)

00:43:53 BingoBoingo: I knew plenty of kids in elementary school on the Desoxyn

00:43:57 mircea_popescu: benkay what's legit for jesus isn't legit for random fuckwit

00:44:39 cazalla: not familiar with that one BingoBoingo, zyprexa gave my dad a sane life though

00:44:48 ozbot: Hawaii family sues dentist for root canal that left 3-year-old girl BRAIN DEAD - NY Daily News

00:44:59 mircea_popescu: think about it... root canals in milk teeth.

00:44:59 BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: In Detroit,St Louis, and Chicago the most common caliber used in homicides was .22LR

00:45:05 herbijudlestoids: cazalla: lol desoxyn is meth :)

00:45:11 cazalla: 3 year olds need root canal?

00:45:24 cazalla: must've given her pepsi instead of breastmilk

00:45:24 asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: if govt. stats are to be believed, this is true in all 50 states.

00:45:24 mircea_popescu: cazalla in the us, yes.

00:46:09 asciilifeform: low pressure round. hence pistols with barrels made of cheap hell-knows-what alloy.

00:46:12 BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Well problem probably isn't government stats in this case. In this case it is people who want to bake a murder want to use an expendable and cheap weapon.

00:47:06 mircea_popescu: so i guess the real gangstas are the people with daisies and red ryders in their mtv videos

00:47:20 mircea_popescu: as opposed to all the fakers with platform machine guns and anti tank missile launchers

00:47:35 asciilifeform: .22, 'olympic' caliber, favourite of executioners around the world

00:49:03 asciilifeform: every once in a while, somebody fellates a .22 and lives

00:49:09 BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: For small game fillinf hollow points with phosphorous has its virtues

00:50:15 herbijudlestoids: let me tell you guys about our prime minister

00:50:20 herbijudlestoids: his name is tony abbott

00:50:24 herbijudlestoids: imagine george bush

00:50:24 BingoBoingo: da union has the best videos on Youtube

00:50:29 herbijudlestoids: and then take away all of the intelligence

00:50:32 herbijudlestoids: thats tony abbott

01:26:01 mircea_popescu: lol "it's not a purse, it's european"

01:26:17 nubbins`: eternal erections would become gangrenous

01:50:35 BingoBoingo: If sit ain't cheap enough head into the wastes

01:50:55 asciilifeform: somebody 'in demand' should actually declare, 'wanna talk? low octets of tx amount to addr. A plz.'

01:50:58 mircea_popescu: that's okay, i can't tell which message he;s on about. we have thus achieved

01:51:04 mircea_popescu: perfect communicational symmetrification.

01:51:23 benkay: <mircea_popescu> benkay splendid stragety.

01:51:29 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform sort-of like how trilema credits work

01:51:30 nubbins`: hmmmmmm

01:51:37 nubbins`: re: "socialist millionaire" problem

01:51:50 Mats_cd03: hes 99% incoherent usually

01:51:52 pankkake: "Just like on the 1st edition VIPs get free shuttle service to and from the airport, free (4 star) hotel accomodation including breakfast (either singles or doubles at your option, no extra charge), free meals and drinks everywhere" oh. I see the point now :D

01:51:53 nubbins`: one nice thing about having a degree in pure mathematics is that you can grok wikipedia articles on math

01:52:15 BingoBoingo: I'd honestly be surprised if this matter is adjudicated in time for next year's conference.

01:52:29 mircea_popescu: benkay just sarcastic

01:52:37 asciilifeform: nubbins`: one can grok the millionaires protocol with a first grade degree.

01:52:48 nubbins`: oh, sure, yeah

01:52:49 asciilifeform: (at least, soviet 1st grade.)

01:53:17 nubbins`: i just mean sentences like "All operations are performed modulo p, or in other words, in the multiplicative group (Z/pZ)*."

01:53:23 mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo i hear a lot of work is being put into keeping us citizens from being able to travel abroad

01:53:32 mircea_popescu: for all sorts of not-directly-related reasons

01:53:38 nubbins`: and they said group theory wouldn't prove useful in real life.

01:53:56 pankkake: a lot of work = butt probes and cancer-giving machines?

01:53:56 benkay: can't say as i agree, mp. before i was limited pretty solidly on increasing revenue. nowadays, i'm only limited on revenue by my ability to find work and people to do it.

01:54:13 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: so far, just a bit of dekulakization.

01:54:13 BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: If it comes down to life and death I can walk to Nuevo Laredo and get all of the hookers. Nao though... Imma wilk my 2.5 BTC out of Mr. Drive Thru.

01:54:19 nubbins`: mircea_popescu: best korea does that, too

01:54:22 mircea_popescu: benkay the sarcasm refers to what was stated not to teh reality therein described.

01:54:47 mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo i was in nuevo laredo, had excellent pasta there

01:55:52 nubbins`: fun fact, the dollar store sells fake Moleskine notebooks for $1

01:56:00 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: there was some prattle about making folks owing $6+figs of tax 'невыездной'

01:57:40 mircea_popescu: $100 is good enough.

01:57:43 nubbins`: it's actually pretty hard to bind a book with thread so poorly that it falls apart

02:34:06 BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: So GHCQ should squash it in good order with their SYN shit.

02:34:10 mircea_popescu: incidentally, the 512 second block altchains die out in about 10 days,

02:34:22 mircea_popescu: when people are done mining the juciest blocks and move on

02:34:34 mircea_popescu: a 30 second block chain should be exhausted in about... a day.

02:38:47 benkay: we're all security people now.

02:38:50 BingoBoingo: Do banks even use SHA-1 yet? Is that "approved" for them?

02:39:09 mircea_popescu: benkay no i mean specifically, it sec consultants for banks with major customer facing interfaces

02:39:49 mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo sure.

03:01:25 nubbins`: altlang syne

03:51:35 nubbins`: not 3 hours

03:54:22 nubbins`: the only problem is that it's a costly meal because you have to buy so many different types of seafood

03:54:33 Vexual: yes, its so china

03:54:34 jayk: i could get the clams for free

03:54:36 nubbins`: but you get a huge pot of it afterwards

03:54:45 jayk: the ground has been so cold here i bet my potatoes are still hard from last year

03:55:14 nubbins`: i cellared a few sacks of potatoes today

03:55:17 cazalla: is it even worth your time to grow potatoes?

03:55:22 jayk: yes

03:55:24 cazalla: i grow stuff i can't pick up at the fruit shop

03:55:26 nubbins`: cazalla: again, it's not much effort

03:55:32 nubbins`: it's just spread over a long period of time

03:55:33 jayk: i probably have 1000lbs in the ground or more

03:55:38 cazalla: not so much the effort but the space they take up

03:55:40 jayk: they are easy to grow

03:55:47 nubbins`: you can grow potatoes in containers, it's what i've done

03:55:55 nubbins`: tall wicker baskets, even a burlap sack

03:56:09 cazalla: i've read you can grow them vertically but i've also read people posting that it doesn't work

03:56:10 jayk: i tried to grow onions but my ducks trampeled over them

03:56:13 nubbins`: get 100lbs of potatoes out of it

03:56:47 Vexual: do you pick 100 or 1000 lbs by hand?

03:56:57 jayk: yes with shovel

03:57:00 cazalla: my tomatoes have been shit this year, constant heat wave has just ruined them

03:57:01 jayk: i only picked about 50lbs

03:57:02 nubbins`: the deck wouldn't support 1000, it's rickety

03:57:18 nubbins`: my tomatoes were pretty good this year

03:57:28 nubbins`: the broccoli all bolted when i was away for two weeks

03:57:29 jayk: a dear destroyed all my tomatoes

03:57:31 Vexual: my mangoes were stellar

03:57:36 jayk: next year i will use fencing

03:57:44 jayk: or guns

03:57:55 nubbins`: armed sentries

03:58:04 cazalla: sentry would be sweet

03:58:13 Vexual: i sent an email to batman and no fruitbats came within a mile

04:00:05 ozbot: Snap pea 'Sugar Sprint' Plant Care & Growing Information | folia

04:00:31 nubbins`: or even several rods per pot, teepee style

04:00:52 nubbins`: grew 'em in empty 2L milk containers

04:02:57 herbijudlestoids: i want them to spend money on servers and switching instead of conferences and meetpus

04:03:21 mircea_popescu: jesus! so all my life i was of the opinion i can identify diabethics, because i smell it on their breath. bunches of people thought this nutty.

04:03:38 nubbins`: sweet

04:04:13 mircea_popescu: talking to doctor person today i find out that a. in diabethics the body uses a lot of fat, creating a lot of ketones

04:04:17 herbijudlestoids: mircea_popescu: ketoacidosis?

04:04:19 herbijudlestoids: yea

04:04:22 mircea_popescu: which eventually decarboxylate into acetone

04:04:28 mircea_popescu: which eventually gets lost through respiration.

04:04:51 mircea_popescu: (the guy asks me "well, what does it smell like ?" "apples" "but ofcourse. you're smelling acetone.")

04:04:53 Vexual: something clever

04:05:12 mircea_popescu: never fucking doubt what you know!

04:05:36 mircea_popescu: i guess so.

04:05:38 nubbins`: incidentally, this is where the whole "huffing on your fingernails before rubbing them on your lapel" thing came from

04:06:15 mircea_popescu: herbijudlestoids don't work with cunts. you play any poker ?

04:06:26 herbijudlestoids: i dont play poker

04:06:28 Namworld: You guys should see Bitfinex right now.

04:06:46 mircea_popescu: herbijudlestoids mkay. anyway, the idea is you ditch a hand when you know it can't win, not when you're comfortable with the loss.

04:07:04 Namworld: Someone managed to put a micro ask order for 500 USD/BTC and a bid for 10000 USD/BTC, which are now stuck there.

04:07:16 mircea_popescu: bitfinex still exists ?!

04:07:18 Namworld: Let's just say it's breaking having on the shorts/calls

04:07:29 Namworld: Yes. I was talking about it last month

04:07:41 mircea_popescu: how do all the scams keep going about like fucking zombies i'll never know./

04:07:47 Namworld: Saying how it was lasting a long time while I expected it to go under within a month.

04:07:52 herbijudlestoids: mircea_popescu: if i didnt think the company was about to grow by about 1000% i wouldnt be working here :)

04:08:05 Namworld: Mircea, there's a lot of people trading on Bitfinex.

04:08:08 mircea_popescu: herbijudlestoids a ok then. you don't REALLY think they're cunts huh.

04:08:18 nubbins`: well if it's gonna do that, fuck the servers and switching ;p

04:08:27 nubbins`: go to 2x as many "meetups"

04:08:35 mircea_popescu: Namworld sucks for them i guess.

04:08:35 Namworld: They can be seen on the Bitcoin price/market/speculation channels. Lot of people short/call on there.

04:08:36 herbijudlestoids: mircea_popescu: theyre cunts because i should be in charge and everyone should listen to me and do as i say but they dont

04:08:53 Namworld: I'm on like 20 BTC related channels, watching

04:08:53 mircea_popescu: herbijudlestoids kinda proves they shouldn't.

04:09:39 cazalla: tickles my ego when i know what mircea_popescu is going to say before it's said

04:09:53 mircea_popescu: cazalla :)

04:09:53 herbijudlestoids: let me clarify. they are not cunts, until something goes wrong in exactly the way that i predicted if we went down a particular path

04:09:57 herbijudlestoids: then, they are cunts.

04:10:03 mircea_popescu: tell them :D

04:10:06 herbijudlestoids: oh i do!

04:10:15 mircea_popescu: what do they say ?

04:11:05 herbijudlestoids: mostly that things are the way they are

04:11:21 mircea_popescu: uh.

04:11:47 mircea_popescu: i'll bet you an altcoin this thing isn't growing 1000% in three months.

04:12:09 Vexual: hey im at this luch, sounds like a good idea

04:12:09 nubbins`: ^

04:12:11 herbijudlestoids: 3-6 months is actually the timeframe

04:12:22 mircea_popescu: take it or leave it :D

04:12:29 nubbins`: just think your very own altcoin

04:12:34 nubbins`: you could call it herbijudlestoidscoin

04:12:38 mircea_popescu: that you can now owe :D

04:12:45 mircea_popescu: nubbins` nono, i meant tat's thing

04:12:48 mircea_popescu: one of them

04:13:06 Vexual: can't owe for a lunch

04:13:06 nubbins`: i know ;(

04:13:40 mircea_popescu: cazalla you know, i'm developing a serious problem with that.

04:13:50 mircea_popescu: people keep knowing what i'm gonna say and say it first just to spite me

04:14:21 mircea_popescu: im gonna borrow Vexual's chainz just to mess with people.

04:14:52 Vexual: um, yeah, sure

04:14:52 cazalla: i wouldn't do that, i see at as evidence i'm actually learning something

04:14:57 cazalla: it*

04:15:49 nubbins`: don't mess with the man's jewelry

04:16:05 Vexual: yeah its ok

04:16:09 Vexual: i guess

04:17:09 Vexual: im not here for a haircut

04:17:29 nubbins`: who is?! buy clippers

04:17:45 herbijudlestoids: i think after my company gets bought out im gonna just try and find some small/simple linux sysadmin work

04:18:49 mircea_popescu: herbijudlestoids why not find some small/simple sex work ?

04:19:00 mircea_popescu: like teaching a bunch of teenagers to enjoy walking naked about town ?

04:19:00 nubbins`: yeah

04:19:10 nubbins`: or giving out handies for bitcents

04:19:22 herbijudlestoids: mircea_popescu: im probly far less qualified? and i love working as a linux sysadmin on small projects?

04:19:25 herbijudlestoids: im sick of this scale shit

04:19:30 herbijudlestoids: running thousands of cores

04:19:41 Vexual: quit

04:19:45 herbijudlestoids: soon :)

04:19:53 herbijudlestoids: well, not quit, but buyout

04:20:04 Vexual: but the cunts remain

04:21:13 herbijudlestoids: i just have one last extremely large cloud to build

04:21:52 herbijudlestoids: maybe ill even get a job in a bookstore or something nice and simple like that

04:22:19 Vexual: lol

04:22:53 mircea_popescu: maybe you could work for mr bookman.

04:22:54 Vexual: ill do your tax

04:23:17 herbijudlestoids: mircea_popescu: thats two seinfeld quotes, fan? i grew up watching it

04:23:36 herbijudlestoids: "its european" and "mr bookman"

04:23:36 mircea_popescu: i probably watched each episode twenty times.

04:23:55 Vexual: it was all that was on television here for 10 years

04:23:56 herbijudlestoids: :D do you like curb your enthusiasm?

04:24:02 herbijudlestoids: lol vex yea

04:24:04 mircea_popescu: i never watched that.

04:24:13 herbijudlestoids: woah what!

04:24:30 Vexual: trilema

04:24:50 mircea_popescu: o nm, i did watch five minutes of it. larry david is being awkward while a girlscout selling him cookies gets her period.

04:25:23 mircea_popescu: it sounds way better in that summary than it actually was.

04:25:31 nubbins`: ^

04:25:31 herbijudlestoids: i always grew up thinking each of the seinfeld characters has their own special quirks

04:25:43 herbijudlestoids: but then i watched curb your enthusiasm and realised they are all just bits of larry david

04:25:53 mircea_popescu: nah.

04:26:02 herbijudlestoids: yah

04:26:08 mircea_popescu: i would say larry david's contribution into the show is roughly represented by his total pay.

04:26:22 mircea_popescu: he made what, like 50mn to seinfeld's 1bn ?

04:26:35 herbijudlestoids: ? his net worth is 750mn

04:26:35 Vexual: im sending chapelle corby the seinfeld box

04:28:38 Vexual: big bada boom in the cab nubbins'

04:28:46 mircea_popescu: Namworld hardly worth doing without the ban.

04:29:51 Namworld: I don't see why. It's supposed to be done strictly to go against the rules?

04:30:38 mircea_popescu: Namworld i generally don't want to see random people naked.

04:30:46 mircea_popescu: i want to see specific people naked and that's all.

04:31:14 mircea_popescu: moreover, the awkwardness and disability of the general folk the ban supports and nourishes serves as an adequate representation of their general mental and social inferiority.

05:58:56 Namworld: Do you know the consequences of having bids at 10000 and asks at 500 bugged on the orderbook? All shorts/margins are considered in the profits massively. And you can just margin to the max based on fake profits. Apparently.

05:59:27 Namworld: And run your account into the red when the actual last price makes shorts/calls execute.

05:59:43 Namworld: Someone put a screenshot in markets channel

05:59:45 Namworld: http://i.imgur.com/LdXwDlM.png

06:01:04 Namworld: Or actually they don't get executed based on last price... not sure.

06:01:09 Namworld: Either way

06:01:38 Namworld: If whoever put those orders in there removes them... might cause a mass execute of all margin orders.

06:02:13 Namworld: Because it seems the current situation gives everyone on finex more or less infinite margin.

06:54:03 herbijudlestoids: how can there be any margin liquidations if the orderbook is broken :P

06:54:03 Namworld: Because something must be botched in the code and it doesn't work, obviously.

06:54:24 herbijudlestoids: not like they can clear any orders in the market on customers with margin calls

06:55:14 Namworld: Luk hiere, thangs ir bork'd op.

06:59:08 Namworld: I would guess wallet would have gone empty OR Bitstamp would have been crashed/pumped infinitely if people managed to exploit it.

06:59:16 herbijudlestoids: it doesnt make sense to me unless the exchange is flawed by design

06:59:35 herbijudlestoids: youre saying the wide orders placed in the book jammed it up

06:59:55 BingoBoingo: Namworld: Bitocolypse was 11 months ago

07:00:20 herbijudlestoids: if liquidations are happening without going into the market then the exchange is taking on liabilities which might not be available when the market returns at the correct volumes

16:47:52 nubbins`: so it seems the inturnet is really upset about apple pulling blockchain.info from the app store, hey?

16:52:00 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [MS] 94 @ 0.005 = 0.47 BTC

16:52:55 ThickAsThieves: indeed

16:53:27 ThickAsThieves: god forbid Apple has a good reason

16:54:03 pankkake: I'm surprised it was allowed in the first place

16:54:09 nubbins`: but, but, i disagree with their reason

16:54:24 nubbins`: pankkake, the only reason it got in there in the first place was a sneak attack

16:55:02 kakobrekla: how so?

16:55:09 pankkake: introduce the app without X features, then introduce the features?

16:55:16 pankkake: that never works with Apple

16:56:01 pankkake: by the way, they don't even have to provide a reason for refusals :)))

17:01:29 ThickAsThieves: accepting bitcoin is the new "IPO" http://bitcoinmagazine.com/9945/favorite-team-accept-bitcoin/

17:02:01 ThickAsThieves: Overstock and Tigerdirect etc get a few extra hundred thousand and fade away

17:02:07 Duffer1: i accept bitcoin

17:02:10 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [B.MINE] [PAID] 0.76834323 BTC to 801 shares, 95923 satoshi per share

17:02:12 Duffer1: and lambos

17:02:13 pankkake: well, they deliver, at least

17:02:19 ThickAsThieves: indeed

17:02:25 pankkake: IPO was getting a lot of coins without accountability

17:02:59 pankkake: if accepting bitcoins means a lot of publicity and sales, that's not bad :)

17:04:53 pankkake: are lambos a good store of value?

17:05:21 nubbins`: heh

17:05:24 Duffer1: i have yet to receive one, i'll let you know if that happens

17:05:34 pankkake: I'm waiting for http://www.lamboparity.com/

17:05:36 nubbins`: pankkake: the wallet features were hidden by default

17:05:43 pankkake: lol hidden

17:05:48 nubbins`: yeah

17:05:53 nubbins`: you had to open a blockchain account

17:05:56 pankkake: reminds me of the flash light app that had a secret feature

17:05:58 nubbins`: via web

17:06:13 nubbins`: then some sort of thing like keep the account open for 2 weeks

17:06:14 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [MS] 212 @ 0.005 = 1.06 BTC

17:06:22 pankkake: interestingly, apple does not review the code of the app

17:06:32 pankkake: so you can sneak things… but usually not for long

17:06:34 nubbins`: then open the iphone app via the same ip address that you've previously logged in with on the website

17:06:46 pankkake: lol

17:06:49 pankkake: amazing

17:06:49 assbot: AMAZING COMPANY!

17:06:53 nubbins`: yeah

17:06:56 nubbins`: it was a real fuckaround

17:07:03 nubbins`: but they flew under the radar for years

17:07:28 kakobrekla: lol

17:07:45 pankkake: and in the same way, you can sneak malware. rendering the whole thing "for your protection" a lie

17:07:47 nubbins`: in practice, this made the app really unreliable when on the go

17:07:55 nubbins`: they do automatic code reviews

17:07:57 nubbins`: no manual tho

17:08:11 nubbins`: unless there's a problem suspected

17:08:17 diametric: automatic code reviews.. what a joke

17:08:23 nubbins`: i agree

17:08:32 nubbins`: it's more for catching bugs than anything

17:08:37 nubbins`: mem leaks etc

17:20:51 pankkake: powered by llvm?

17:26:16 asciilifeform: nubbins`: last i checked, those were just a thin gui skin on top of gdb and gprof.

17:26:37 nubbins`: pankkake, osx does use llvm-gcc

17:26:50 nubbins`: asciilifeform: could be, i never dug under the skin too much

17:27:17 nubbins`: afaik the whole thing is based on gnu tools tho

17:28:03 asciilifeform: well, Next's perverted gcc fork, anyway.

17:28:14 nubbins`: nod

17:28:29 nubbins`: this caused problems when trying to compile the last eulora release for osx

17:28:41 nubbins`: terrible, terrible problems

17:29:17 asciilifeform: apple died in '99.

17:29:29 asciilifeform: replaced by Next. (with name changed to 'apple')

17:29:39 nubbins`: nod

17:32:03 nubbins`: then in one major release, they reassigned the names to different things

17:32:11 nubbins`: what was once called a site is now a web, etc

17:32:20 nubbins`: but all the old class names remained the same

17:39:44 nubbins`: there's a steady push towards an apple device being a device of consumption rather than production

18:36:55 pankkake: coingen

18:37:05 nubbins`: maybe it really does, yep

18:37:08 benkay: why would you change the port number?

18:37:44 pankkake: mike_c: there's no hate for bernankoin

18:37:59 pankkake: it's *impossible* to premine anyway!

18:38:03 ThickAsThieves: nubbins ive decided your argument is not sound

18:38:11 ThickAsThieves: you had me worried

18:38:14 ThickAsThieves: but no

18:38:36 nubbins`: you've decided that the guy selling apples w/ razors to creepy old men is not at fault, because he's not the one handing them out to kids?

18:38:50 mike_c: i guess nobody will lose money on bernankoin cuz you can always just print more to keep people from losing money

18:38:59 nubbins`: "lel pre-razored apples, what a riot!"

18:38:59 Duffer1: lol

18:39:13 nubbins`: and we all have a chuckle and a kid slices his neck open

18:39:17 pankkake: well anyone printing it for more than a few hours is a fool

18:39:18 ThickAsThieves: in a world where there can be any number of alts, all on same codebase, no one alt is better than the other

18:39:19 nubbins`: but hey, fuck him, he shoulda checked!

18:39:33 ThickAsThieves: that includes bitcoin really

18:40:04 nubbins`: alts have two purposes: to experiment with ideas and to have a lel/run a scam

18:40:10 ThickAsThieves: says who

18:40:13 asciilifeform: eventually, mining breakthrough, and people will regret having undermined the whole concept of blockchain by having a swarm of little chains

18:40:13 mike_c: that's three purposes

18:40:13 nubbins`: says me

18:40:22 nubbins`: mike_c: the lel/scam is the same thing

18:40:53 asciilifeform: 'fail to hang together, and you will hang separately'

18:41:28 ThickAsThieves: mining breakthrough?

18:41:49 asciilifeform: hypothetically.

18:42:34 ThickAsThieves: but really, what makes bitcoin better than an altcoin other than its adoption level?

18:42:39 ThickAsThieves: it's all the same shit

18:43:22 nubbins`: one's real and the other is for fleecing rubes, that's what

18:43:27 asciilifeform: entirely ignoring the 'features' (many vs. few coins, frequents vs. rare blocks, etc) and premining,

18:43:33 asciilifeform: the difference is: who has it.

18:43:38 nubbins`: if you're fine with rubes being fleeced, then there's no difference, no

18:43:48 asciilifeform: every cryptocoin can be seen as an attempt to 'replay the history of money'

18:43:53 asciilifeform: with (optionally) different winners.

18:43:57 nubbins`: ^

18:44:03 asciilifeform: much depends on who these winners are.

18:44:19 mike_c: there is a difference between selling real estate in florida that is secretly swampland, and openly selling swamps.

18:44:33 ThickAsThieves: and it's impossible to have two coins coexist and be healthy?

18:44:45 asciilifeform: hard to sell swamp to people who understand what a swamp is.

18:44:59 mike_c: right, which is why you haven't bought any ATC

18:45:01 nubbins`: it's impossible for a rubecoin to be healthy, yes

18:45:06 ThickAsThieves: is it impossible an altcoin will become the winner over bitcoin?

18:45:26 asciilifeform: it isn't impossible. we live in a world with ms-winblows, for example.

18:45:28 nubbins`: let's be clear, your experiment isn't intended to become a winner over bitcoin

18:45:31 asciilifeform: there are many such 'winners'.

18:45:39 nubbins`: it's intended to have a chuckle

18:45:40 benkay: even if there is a mining breakthrough, the compute deployed against alts couldn't save bitcoin...

18:45:43 nubbins`: but the funny thing about intentions...

18:45:47 ThickAsThieves: says you

18:46:03 nubbins`: says me, yes

18:46:15 nubbins`: says you, as well

18:46:21 ThickAsThieves: no actually

18:46:26 ThickAsThieves: says the miners

18:46:33 ThickAsThieves: thats all really

18:46:42 TomServo: ThickAsThieves: You saying you don't own any and won't mine any doesn't preclude that?

18:46:58 ThickAsThieves: preclude what

18:47:08 TomServo: It winning over btc

18:47:19 ThickAsThieves: what i say doesnt mean much

18:47:47 nubbins`: that's becoming clear ;D

18:47:55 ThickAsThieves: seriously

18:47:58 ThickAsThieves: i know i fuck around

18:48:04 nubbins`: i do too

18:48:08 nubbins`: the suckers being suckered don't

18:48:23 ThickAsThieves: but you guys arent giving real arguments here

18:48:30 ThickAsThieves: you act like i'm inventing altcoins

18:48:36 asciilifeform: whether a particular alt is 'trying to win over btc' can be determined by looking at what it is being traded for.

18:48:36 Duffer1: it's a subjective moral argument

18:48:43 asciilifeform: if it is being parcelled out in exchange for btc...

18:48:53 asciilifeform: then it is clear which coin the author regards as genuine and having a future.

18:49:04 Duffer1: based entirely on what you believe is moral or amoral

18:49:17 nubbins`: duffer, it boils down to this, yes

18:49:25 nubbins`: promoting a lelcoin as being serious is amoral

18:49:28 nubbins`: in my view

18:49:30 ThickAsThieves: what if the other just wants to do create the thing to see what happens

18:49:32 nubbins`: others disagree

18:49:45 asciilifeform: would you happily part with gold, for instance, if you believe that 'gold standard' will make a comeback?

18:49:47 Mats_cd03: so what was the size of the mpex whale fee

18:49:49 nubbins`: what if i just want to stuff a cigarette with match heads to see what happens?

18:49:52 mike_c: nubbins`: do you think it was immoral to flip houses during the housing bubble?

18:49:57 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [B.SELL] 1 @ 0.11900001 BTC [-]

18:50:08 ThickAsThieves: so far its mostly been an expression for me, some luls sure, but kinda performance art

18:50:33 ThickAsThieves: i havent even pondered what my investment strategy might be for it

18:50:35 ThickAsThieves: i dont care

18:50:39 ThickAsThieves: maybe i buy some

18:50:43 ThickAsThieves: maybe i dont

18:50:51 nubbins`: mike_c, there was a housing bubble? ;p

18:51:19 nubbins`: i think it's immoral to sell a cardboard box painted up like a house to a new family

18:51:30 ThickAsThieves: thats not what this is

18:51:39 nubbins`: bernankoin, you read the spec and have a lel

18:51:58 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [B.SELL] 1 @ 0.119 BTC [-]

18:52:05 nubbins`: dogecoin, you see people actually losing things of value

18:52:30 nubbins`: intentions don't matter, what people do with the thing you've made does matter

18:53:07 mike_c: bah. and bitcoin is to blame for assasinationmarket

18:53:09 benkay: is running a gambling house a moral operation, nubbins`?

18:53:15 nubbins`: benkay, no

18:53:45 nubbins`: mike_c: assassinations are purchased with or without bitcoin

18:53:58 nubbins`: rubes losing money on ATC doesn't happen without ATC

18:54:11 mike_c: of course it does.

18:54:25 mike_c: that money is lost simply by rubes having it.

18:54:49 ThickAsThieves: you cant die from frostbite while bathing in lava either

18:54:55 asciilifeform: 'if i hadn't picked his pocket, some other fellow would've.'

18:55:01 nubbins`: ^

18:55:15 ThickAsThieves: except i'm not picking pockets

18:55:17 nubbins`: nice rationalization, isn't it

18:55:23 nubbins`: no, you're just selling tongs

18:55:27 ThickAsThieves: no

18:55:30 nubbins`: yyyep

18:55:34 ThickAsThieves: i'm selling streets

18:55:46 nubbins`: streets serve a useful purpose

18:55:49 ThickAsThieves: maybe people get robbed on them

18:55:53 ThickAsThieves: so does currency

18:56:12 Duffer1: this argument is why i never made Hodorcoin, in the end, someone was going to lose money on it

18:56:20 nubbins`: if you can justify it to yourself, there's not much i can do to convince you otherwise

18:56:26 nubbins`: just wanted to offer a perspective

18:56:34 mike_c: i lost money on mpex once. mp is a scammor.

18:56:38 benkay: everything is a scam

18:56:43 ThickAsThieves: i can say i dont want to hurt anyone

18:56:51 ThickAsThieves: surely

18:57:03 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 35005 @ 0.00085841 = 30.0486 BTC [+] {2}

18:57:06 ThickAsThieves: but i cant say that i wont sell knives

18:57:06 nubbins`: sure, and you can offer perpetual mining turds that anyone with a brain would know is a bad purchase

18:57:44 asciilifeform: take classic btc. it was a net gain in wealth, rather than simply a machine from moving money from one pocket to another, because it made new things possible. what new things does the altcoin-of-the-day make possible?

18:57:53 nubbins`: but you can't say that you're not intentionally fleecing rubes

18:58:10 asciilifeform: 'my ferrari' is one answer. but not an answer that will satisfy skeptics.

18:58:16 ThickAsThieves: well if we go buy the Altcoin's mission it's purpose is to get everyone to stop mining every other altcoin

18:58:31 ThickAsThieves: would you count marginal success in that as a good thing?

18:58:33 kakobrekla: allowing for txes when 1mb limit is being hit for one but thats where it ends

18:58:55 nubbins`: would you count getting people off heroin and into crack as a good thing?

18:59:12 jborkl: not to the dealers

18:59:19 ThickAsThieves: i dont think that's a proper comparison

18:59:27 asciilifeform: this is more like getting all of the addicts to buy from one large dealer instead of quitting

18:59:33 nubbins`: sure it is, they're trading one terrible choice for another

18:59:49 mike_c: if you accept the axiom that any coin besides bitcoin has no value.

18:59:52 ThickAsThieves: the problem is you are making assumptions that are false

18:59:57 Mats_cd03: Some people just lack enough empathy

19:00:05 nubbins`: do tell!

19:00:07 asciilifeform: just asking the question of where the added value is.

19:00:11 asciilifeform: it's a legitimate question.

19:00:14 ThickAsThieves: you assume all altcoins are a loss/waste

19:00:19 ThickAsThieves: i do not

19:00:23 nubbins`: i don't assume that

19:00:31 nubbins`: altcoins are a great way to test out new concepts

19:00:42 asciilifeform: if there's added value ('i've an nsa-resistant work-function, here, look') we're all ears.

19:00:47 nubbins`: but a big machine that spits out slightly tweaked alts isn't

19:01:07 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [NEOBEE] 500 @ 0.003078 = 1.539 BTC [+]

19:01:10 ThickAsThieves: again i think this is a false assumption as well, alts needing new concepts

19:01:23 nubbins`: nobody's saying you NEED to test new concepts

19:01:31 ThickAsThieves: no,

19:01:37 TomServo: ThickAsThieves: is it a "preformance piece" or "maybe a viable altcoin, we'll see"?

19:01:38 asciilifeform: then your real proposition is 'i ought to be Satoshi and will use the powers for Good'

19:01:39 nubbins`: just that there's the potential for learning, growth, new thought processes, etc

19:01:42 ThickAsThieves: you are saying the NEED is required for value to exist

19:01:56 ThickAsThieves: it;s not a fact

19:04:20 kakobrekla: I wish blowjob and icecream

19:04:29 nubbins`: you're trying to rationalize your lelcoin right now, in this conversation

19:04:36 asciilifeform: ThickAsThieves: good luck with the chump harvesting.

19:04:39 nubbins`: ^

19:05:06 ThickAsThieves: seriously, you cant definitively win one argument and now i'm a shill

19:05:21 nubbins`: what's with "winning" "arguments"?

19:05:26 TomServo: TomServo | ThickAsThieves: is it a "preformance piece" or "maybe a viable altcoin, we'll see"?

19:05:39 ThickAsThieves: i dont know

19:05:47 ThickAsThieves: it just is

19:05:50 asciilifeform: the trouble with chump harvesting, morals aside, is that there is always a new, slicker chump-harvesting artist coming to town.

19:06:00 asciilifeform: whose 'no added value needed' proposition is 'just as good' as yours

19:06:02 asciilifeform: but new/exciting.

19:06:10 mike_c: that's not trouble if he's not trying to harvest chumps

19:06:10 nubbins`: so value, many excite

19:07:37 pankkake: well, I'm stuck :(

19:08:00 ThickAsThieves: your arguments live in some imaginary ending where only bitcoin is left

19:08:02 asciilifeform: the other thing, your alt may be 'honest', but plenty are not. say, quite soon governments will begin herding people (through guile or force) into national altcoins.

19:08:04 asciilifeform: with central control.

19:08:14 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [B.SELL] 1 @ 0.1289 BTC [+]

19:08:15 asciilifeform: the proliferation of chumpcoins sets the stage for this

19:08:19 asciilifeform: by destroying the Schelling point.

19:08:33 ThickAsThieves: so

19:08:36 asciilifeform: 'divide & conquer'

19:08:38 Duffer1: interesting proposition

19:08:40 ThickAsThieves: you cant stop it if thats the path

19:08:50 ThickAsThieves: and it certainly wont be because i made Altcoin

19:08:55 pankkake: it's pchMessageStart, but I'm not sure how to reverse-engineer it

19:09:08 asciilifeform: 'no drop of water believes that it is to blame for the flood' etc.

19:10:32 Duffer1: lets put aside the moralizing and focus on the likely outcome of the experiment

19:10:44 mike_c: imagine a grid with 100 tiny squares and 1 enormous square. Add as many tiny squares as you want, the Schelling point remains.

19:10:44 Rick_: mircea is here?

19:11:09 asciilifeform: Duffer1: we already know the outcome. that's what makes it a distinctly disappointing experiment.

19:11:11 Duffer1: paging mircea_popescu , mircea_popescu to the desk please

19:11:28 ThickAsThieves: oh you do?

19:11:33 ThickAsThieves: intersting

19:11:34 ThickAsThieves: e

19:11:51 Duffer1: i believe that is the likely outcome as well ascii

19:12:04 asciilifeform: somewhere in russia, a drunk is unzipping, preparing to piss in an apartment lobby. you prod him, he answers 'drunks will always piss in lobbies. you can't just will it away.'

19:12:07 Duffer1: getting from here to there would probably be very interesting though

19:12:21 pankkake: does anyone here know basic C? how do I print, say, 0x0b? I want it to be 0x0b on the screen, or similar

19:12:27 asciilifeform: 'besides it already stinks'

19:12:54 ThickAsThieves: no, you are trying to say pissing shouldnt happen at all

19:13:03 asciilifeform: pankkake: printf("%x", foo)

19:13:09 ThickAsThieves: or that there is only one place to piss

19:13:11 ThickAsThieves: i dunno

19:13:13 pankkake: thanks, this is also what I found :)

19:13:36 pankkake: I need to find something interesting to write in C

19:13:39 asciilifeform: ThickAsThieves: merely that the world would stink less if people could agree to piss in toilets, or the woods, but not apartment lobby.

19:13:41 nubbins`: what he's saying is piss in the fucking toilet

19:13:49 nubbins`: not in people's faces

19:13:58 ThickAsThieves: by that argument why do we allow more than one fiat?

19:14:25 ThickAsThieves: why hasnt that been cleaned up?

19:14:31 ThickAsThieves: didnt require bitcoin to do so

19:14:32 asciilifeform: for the same reason that a town has more than one burglar

19:14:54 ThickAsThieves: you really see it that way?

19:15:25 asciilifeform: very basic game theory.

19:15:33 mike_c: pankkake: take something slow in one of your python programs and write a C module for it

19:16:30 ThickAsThieves: and what of this grand plan to make a better coingen.io?

19:16:38 ThickAsThieves: mircea is scammer too?

19:17:04 nubbins`: "a better"

19:17:11 nubbins`: atc = "a better" alt?

19:17:22 jurov: pankkake: rewrite pympex (but dunno if there's portable gpg C library)

19:17:30 nubbins`: PMTs = "a better" way to invest?

19:17:50 pankkake: I doubt the performance issues of pympex are in the Python code ;)

19:17:50 ThickAsThieves: amazing

19:17:50 assbot: AMAZING COMPANY!

19:18:10 ThickAsThieves: so enabling the more efficient creation of Altcoins is moral, but making one is not

19:18:10 jurov: i had in mind portability issues

19:18:34 nubbins`: nobody's saying that

19:18:49 pankkake: there are many gpg python libs, which all suck in a different way

19:18:59 ThickAsThieves: so it's just a fleecing of rubes plan of mp's?

19:19:10 nubbins`: nobody's saying that either

19:19:13 jurov: pankkake: yep, even some forks with same name

19:19:34 nubbins`: making a new compiler != creating exploits

19:19:39 asciilifeform: ignoring morality entirely. if you'd like to live in a future where crypto-coins are a useful thing, vs. a fogotten fad, think twice about cranking out spamcoins.

19:19:42 pankkake: in the end, for what I wanted to do, I ended up calling gpg directly

19:20:53 benkay: asciilifeform: would you elaborate on how cranking out altcoins will do *anything* to bitcoin?

19:21:19 mike_c: pankkake: curious what you were trying to do that was not working with the python gpg lib?

19:21:36 asciilifeform: benkay: one of the big strengths of classic btc is that it is a schelling point.

19:22:44 asciilifeform: now every idiot wants 'his own' blockchain. and soon, every government, with master keys baked in, naturally

19:22:49 pankkake: it's wasn't really about working, but I didn't want to add a dependency for nothing

19:22:58 mike_c: ah

19:23:01 pankkake: in the end most of the feature is calling gpgv

19:23:04 asciilifeform: in the latter, fiat infusions will make these boobycoins appear to be (temporarily) valuable

19:23:07 asciilifeform: and chumps will flock to them.

19:23:10 pankkake: which is also portable :)

19:23:26 asciilifeform: getting used to central control, pre-mining by national mints, and all of the traditional joys of fiat.

19:24:17 asciilifeform: 'embrace and extinguish.'

19:24:25 mike_c: i think you are vastly overestimating public knowledge of even the existence of altcoins

19:25:04 ThickAsThieves: I think you have limited the possible futures too much

19:25:46 nubbins`: replace max with alt

19:25:54 asciilifeform: every cig thrower is king of his own universe for a few seconds

19:27:48 nubbins`: ergo, it never will!

19:28:06 ThickAsThieves: again a bad analogy

19:28:10 nubbins`: when can we expect mike_ccoin?

19:28:25 mike_c: never, i own one ATC. hence my position :)

19:28:30 ozbot: LiveLeak.com - WELCOME TO SHIT BEACH

19:28:46 asciilifeform: life in garbage world, sans cleanup crews.

19:29:08 benkay: but "good money drives out bad", asciilifeform. every local government can print their own fiat, demand taxes in their own shitcoin, and all of the wealth will stay in bitcoin.

19:29:23 nubbins`: "so what if we're helping turn cryptocurrency into a digital liberia"

19:29:43 nubbins`: "fuck the signal, here's some more noise"

19:29:57 asciilifeform: the question we're about to learn the answer to is close to: 'does the average person actually appreciate toilets and garbage trucks? or would be be just as happy using his local beach?'

19:29:57 mike_c: this is like imagining that the btctalk retardation will hurt bitcoin.

19:30:20 benkay: there is only noise in the universe. moments of signal are rare and unusual and vanish rapidly. thermodynamics at work.

19:30:40 nubbins`: benkay, that's about two steps from "what IS reality?"

19:30:46 mike_c: but he threw his butt in the toilet. it was announced on btctalk.

19:30:46 kakobrekla: everything is locel on the net

19:30:59 kakobrekla: local

19:31:11 benkay: not hardly. it's more along the lines of "seeing clearly in the fog is difficult", nubbins`. not "everything is foggy so fuck it".

19:31:29 nubbins`: mike_c, ah, the toilet? that's okay, then

19:31:36 nubbins`: once you flush things down the toilet, they're gone

19:31:37 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [NEOBEE] 545 @ 0.0031181 = 1.6994 BTC [+] {3}

19:31:39 ThickAsThieves: Maybe, I make Altcoin, it does pretty good, then something goes bad and people lose a bunch of money. Then I admit you guys were right. The guilt eats my soul til I realize I must now design the best coin ever. I do, and it kills bitcoin, and the world basks in a new dawn of finance. I load up IRC "sup fuckers, good thing I made Altcoin!"

19:31:42 benkay: just because the signal is loud and clear today is not a reason why it should remain that way.

19:31:53 nubbins`: "well, the tanker was leaking oil something fierce, so we towed it outside the environment"

19:32:01 nubbins`: "into another environment?"

19:32:07 nubbins`: "no, OUT of the environment"

19:32:14 mike_c: ok, i give up. let's debate abortion and gun control instead.

19:32:45 kakobrekla: kill fetuses with guns!

19:32:49 nubbins`: ThickAsThieves: ...

19:32:53 ThickAsThieves: :)

19:32:59 asciilifeform: ThickAsThieves: i, for one, had no notion of convincing you that bamboozling people is wrong. only that you are ultimately burning your own furniture for heat.

19:33:10 mike_c: they aren't fetuses they are human beings. murderer.

19:33:30 kakobrekla: no, guns kill people, not people. not a murderer

19:33:40 pankkake: to make a "successful" altcoin nowadays you need more than releasing it

19:33:43 asciilifeform: right now, alt enthusiasts are shitting on a relatively clean beach.

19:33:55 Duffer1: when i argue against something, i take the time later to try to argue for it, i can't think of any arguments for altcoin atm (but that could very likely be user error) hehe

19:34:03 ThickAsThieves: asciilifeform, you are likely right, but it is already shaping up to be an interesting excercise

19:34:04 asciilifeform: they happily take their btc earnings from selling the alts and enjoy the valuable, relatively-stable coin.

19:35:17 nubbins`: ^ this is the other side of it

19:35:32 kakobrekla: someone has to be on the other side of the sell asciilifeform

19:35:40 jborkl: so what did I miss about GOX? just read a article that bitcoin withdraws are not working now? (not that I use them anymore)

19:35:46 nubbins`: you asked me if mp was running a scam by making a better coingen. i ask you if there's a mirceacoin

19:35:49 asciilifeform: nubbins`: 'Bob the Bridge Builder.'

19:35:57 nubbins`: wait, the same bob who sucks dicks?

19:36:02 nubbins`: i've heard of him

19:36:50 ThickAsThieves: i do wish mircea was here, because even if i'm outright in the wrong, he'd at least be able to make that clear. i'm having real trouble with these arguments.

19:37:16 ThickAsThieves: and to comment on TAT.VM

19:37:21 asciilifeform: not sure even karl friedrich gauss could make this any more clear.

19:37:31 nubbins`: HEH

19:37:53 ThickAsThieves: First, I didn't really realize what would happen, and I really did not intend to harm. However, I do regret it.

19:38:14 nubbins`: ^ picture yourself saying this about ATC 6 months from now

19:38:14 benkay: it's fine

19:38:15 nubbins`: please

19:38:17 benkay: you've done nothing

19:38:19 ThickAsThieves: And that regret did have an affect on my latter movs.

19:38:22 asciilifeform: ThickAsThieves: if this is true, it isn't too late to publicly repent and call the thing off.

19:38:34 ThickAsThieves: moves

19:38:34 asciilifeform: it would be a very educational act.

19:38:37 nubbins`: ^

19:38:40 benkay: how are you going to do that?

19:38:46 ThickAsThieves: i will not

19:38:55 asciilifeform: well, we tried.

19:39:00 ThickAsThieves: if it dies it will be due to my attention span more likely

19:39:05 nubbins`: SMH

19:39:12 jborkl: What are you doing anywy Tat, I missed that part

19:39:26 Duffer1: Altcoin jborkl

19:39:28 nubbins`: jborkl, helping scammers fleece rubes

19:39:33 nubbins`: or inventing the future of crypto

19:39:34 ThickAsThieves: in a meta moment i made a meta altcoin

19:39:37 nubbins`: we can't agree

19:39:38 mike_c: http://www.therealaltcoin.org/

19:39:39 ozbot: The Real Altcoin (ATC) - Never mine another altcoin again.

19:40:20 ThickAsThieves: look the slogan is also the disclaimer

19:40:23 ThickAsThieves: what more can i do

19:40:39 mike_c: btw, i disagree that an honestly run buisness that ends in failure is tarnishing to a reputation.

19:41:02 ThickAsThieves: are you referring to TAT.VM?

19:41:15 asciilifeform: mike_c: if pump'n'dump is a type of honest business, i'd hate to see what a scam is now

19:41:23 mike_c: he's not pumping & dumping!

19:41:38 nubbins`: mike_c: you disagree that displaying a shocking lack of foresight is tarnishing to a reputation?

19:41:40 nubbins`: jesus

19:41:47 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [NEOBEE] 147 @ 0.003078 = 0.4525 BTC [-]

19:42:12 benkay: what is this shocking lack of foresight?

19:42:14 mike_c: a shocking lack of foresight? super harsh. a lot of entrepeneurs fail

19:42:23 nubbins`: benkay, mike_c: TAT.VM

19:42:41 nubbins`: [16:07:54] <ThickAsThieves> First, I didn't really realize what would happen, and I really did not intend to harm. However, I do regret it.

19:42:56 ThickAsThieves: i dont regret it as a failure

19:43:03 ThickAsThieves: i'm not sure i'd even call it a failure

19:43:08 nubbins`: maybe you could whip up a regretcoin, premine a bunch, and send them to the rubes who got fleeced

19:43:09 benkay: how was vm a failure?

19:43:23 asciilifeform: ThickAsThieves: maybe i missed something... but where's the source code?

19:43:33 nubbins`: benkay: it wasn't a failure for TAT

19:43:35 ThickAsThieves: you missed something ;)

19:43:40 benkay: that's part and parcel of the story, asciilifeform. he didn't pay for the source.

19:43:43 nubbins`: mike_c was the one who mentioned failute

19:43:46 nubbins`: *failure

19:43:50 asciilifeform: who in his right mind would run this

19:43:54 ThickAsThieves: i regret that some people really did not understand what they were buying, despite utter transparency

19:44:05 asciilifeform: 7MB is room for all of the world's trojans, etc

19:44:10 nubbins`: do you regret that you really did not understand what you were selling?

19:44:10 ThickAsThieves: which wouldnt be so bad

19:44:18 benkay: nubbins`: it's a perpetual mining bond. pay btc now for a thing that becomes rapidly more useless.

19:44:26 ThickAsThieves: if it werent for the dramatic mining diff changes that came like 1 week after release

19:44:30 nubbins`: benkay: yes, that's correct

19:44:37 ThickAsThieves: i knew what i was selling

19:44:42 nubbins`: ooh

19:44:43 asciilifeform: pay for the source?

19:44:44 nubbins`: that's worse

19:44:46 ThickAsThieves: it was spelled out quite clearly

19:44:50 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [B.SELL] 1 @ 0.12020001 BTC [-]

19:44:54 nubbins`: you knew you were selling overpriced turds?

19:44:54 benkay: it was crystal clear.

19:45:01 asciilifeform: as if it took more than ten minutes to grab a copy of bitcoind src and change the constants

19:45:15 mike_c: do you hate JD too? people have lost more on that then they will ever lose on atc.

19:45:24 nubbins`: [16:07:54] <ThickAsThieves> First, I didn't really realize what would happen

19:45:25 nubbins`: [16:14:38] <ThickAsThieves> i knew what i was selling

19:45:27 mike_c: and people don't "understand" volatility or EV

19:45:29 ThickAsThieves: am i a criminal for profiting off jurov when he did the opposite?

19:45:38 benkay: yes well this is the world in which we live, asciilifeform. people can't grep source and depend on web apps to make altcoins from them.

19:45:50 ThickAsThieves: i sold mining futures

19:45:55 nubbins`: i'm not saying you're a criminal, i'm saying you're hurting other people as well as yourself

19:46:06 ThickAsThieves: oh i did not hurt myself

19:46:06 asciilifeform: i changed my mind. we should all love Altcoin. anyone who runs a 7MB turd of unknown provenance deserves the lessons contained therein.

19:46:15 ThickAsThieves: i gained some very valuable experience

19:46:26 nubbins`: oh, you hurt yourself, even if you don't realize it yet

19:46:29 asciilifeform: ThickAsThieves: i hope you stuffed some serious 0day strange in there.

19:46:40 ThickAsThieves: i didnt even make it

19:46:47 ThickAsThieves: bluematt did

19:47:03 nubbins`: "i didn't put the razor in the apple, i just gave it to the kid"

19:47:03 mike_c: now that they are making a mistake out of security ignorance instead of financial ignorance it's better :)

19:47:27 nubbins`: we're going to run out of soap if this hand-washing continues

19:47:35 mike_c: we're already out of soap boxes.

19:47:41 nubbins`: oh, zing

19:47:44 mike_c: hehe

19:47:58 nubbins`: luckily everyone's already standing on one

19:48:22 ThickAsThieves: consider also that tatvm enabled me to do every release after it

19:48:27 ThickAsThieves: xbond, neo

19:49:03 nubbins`: consider that pirate's scam enabled him to buy a bunch of blow

19:49:17 ThickAsThieves: so xbond was blow?

19:49:18 nubbins`: consider that tatvm has tainted everything you've done since

19:49:56 ThickAsThieves: and your integrity is flawless?

19:50:26 ThickAsThieves: so basically i hath been judged by nubbins long ago?

19:50:31 nubbins`: go dig up some dirt on me, i'll wait here

19:50:39 nubbins`: and basically, yep

19:50:48 ThickAsThieves: good to know i guess

19:51:07 nubbins`: good to know if you take something away from it

19:51:12 nubbins`: useless to know otherwise

19:53:33 Duffer1: i still <3 you TaT

19:54:30 Duffer1: another haiku!

19:54:55 TomServo: Well fascinating conversation, either way.

19:55:00 nubbins`: indeed

19:55:13 mike_c: roosevelt had something to say about this

19:55:37 nubbins`: mike_c: did he say "if your friends have to issue public warnings not to invest in things you create, you're probably a legit businessman with a future"?

19:55:38 TomServo: Something I think asciilifeform touched on, judging the merits of all cryptocurrencies... isn't hashrate pretty much the end-all-be-all?

19:56:10 mike_c: i don't think that was it

19:56:20 asciilifeform: TomServo: hash rate isn't all of it. lack of seigniorage is another.

19:56:31 nubbins`: mike_c: i'm terrible with quotes

19:57:01 mike_c: i have had friends start buisnesses that i would not invest in. that didn't make them scum.

19:57:08 TomServo: asciilifeform: Ah yes, with that being equal though?

19:57:26 mike_c: why do i keep misspelling business?

19:57:45 asciilifeform: there's a difference between 'use my thing. because it's better' and 'use my thing. it's better, really. and oh btw, if you buy in it will pay for my 1kg/day coke habit.'

19:58:02 ThickAsThieves: wtf

19:58:20 TomServo: I thought it was pretty interesting to see the LTC DOGE hashrate intersect, and then re-intersect and what those implications might be.

19:58:27 mike_c: yeah, tat is rolling in blow from atc.

19:59:20 asciilifeform: seigniorage is an actual problem. i personally know perfectly reasonable, intelligent people who won't go near btc because of Satoshi's coins.

19:59:26 kakobrekla: TomServo the implication is, people can get fooled more than once

20:02:42 nubbins`: good a time for a break as any

21:09:24 ThickAsThieves: [16:08] <ThickAsThieves> but the person that dumped the genblock can?

22:31:19 benkay: you're

22:31:24 benkay: http://plantlust.com

22:31:51 ThickAsThieves: you build carts?

22:32:03 dub: you fuck plants?

22:32:12 truffles: you're curious?

22:32:14 ThickAsThieves: well i'm vegan at least

22:32:19 truffles: oh no

22:32:43 benkay: we dragged the frontend kicking and screaming into 2014, dragged an ancient django application from 1.2 to 1.4, delivered myriad performance improvements totalling in excess of 10x across the whole stack, and implemented distributed work queues to decrease the risk of large data processing jobs

22:33:11 ThickAsThieves: it looks nice

22:33:32 mike_c: why 1.4 instead of 1.6?

22:33:41 ThickAsThieves: i wouldnt even feel scammed if i sent them money

22:34:16 ThickAsThieves: hmm it's not even a cart

22:34:19 benkay: the next development iteration is going to focus on putting a 'buy' button next to each plant, redesigning the remaining pages that look like they're from 2006, taking people's money when they do click buy and turning into a plant on their doorstep, using the 56+ nurseries the site owner already has relationships with for distributed development

22:34:20 ThickAsThieves: oops

22:34:30 ThickAsThieves: ah

22:34:40 KRS-One: fuck plants, they are boring.

22:34:43 benkay: distributed fulfillment

22:35:03 mike_c: boring is good. no scooping poop.

22:35:06 truffles: plants take work man

22:35:15 Duffer1: infinite scroll would be nice

22:35:43 benkay: 1.4 was necessary for some particular features, i forget what precisely. chose to not go all the way to 1.6 to mitigate risk.

22:35:47 benkay: oh yeah, did i mention the stack automation and rearchitecture?

22:36:15 Duffer1: it's a great looking sight though, i love the homepage

22:36:16 benkay: there was enough risk in this project that 1.6 made me uncomfortable and i stopped the upgrade at the release that bought us the features we needed.

22:36:42 truffles: they should have a subcategory "exotic plants"

22:36:44 benkay: thanks! the owner did the wires and we implemented it.

22:36:57 benkay: anyways, we have availability for other projects.

22:36:59 mike_c: i upgraded to 1.6 recently without many bumps. but i think i went from 1.4, so less risk

22:37:03 truffles: fruits*

22:39:38 ThickAsThieves: benkay, have you ever done anything in online education software

22:39:52 mike_c: bitcointalk is unusable. if only they had thousands of btc to improve the site with.

22:40:19 benkay: i've played with plenty.

22:40:43 benkay: is there something specific to the online education software domain that's not applicable to general webappery?

22:40:53 ThickAsThieves: nope

22:41:20 benkay: what are you curious about?

22:41:23 ThickAsThieves: just having a bad run with the team on it

22:41:32 ThickAsThieves: and the two before that

22:41:43 benkay: ouch

22:41:46 benkay: what's the stack?

22:41:55 ThickAsThieves: i'm pretty far removed from it now

22:42:00 ThickAsThieves: it's LAMP

22:42:44 benkay: phpbrekla's your man for that

22:43:08 ThickAsThieves: he'd probly cry at this code

22:43:17 dub: I heard tux might be in the market

22:43:28 benkay: company line on php is "we're only interested in the project if the client is prepared to make a large investment in moving away from php"

22:43:49 benkay: that said we can always manage a project and assemble a team for the right price.

22:43:56 benkay: there is a php fee tho :(

22:44:12 ThickAsThieves: the investment, in my eyes, would be in a team that can be counted on and is proficient

22:44:23 ThickAsThieves: the PHP is incidental

22:44:32 pankkake: I used to be in a php shop, but we did pass twice on a project that was simply… impossible to comprehend

22:44:36 ThickAsThieves: of course cost determines all in the end

22:45:11 ThickAsThieves: they are finally installing the new version of the software onto a live server this week

22:45:15 ThickAsThieves: after like 18mos

22:45:42 benkay: ka yikes

22:45:57 benkay: first thing we typically do is set up infrastructure, CI and low-friction deploys.

22:45:57 ThickAsThieves: and I had bigger plans for it, so it needs ongoing work

Convert to SaaS DIY Training Lesson Builder

22:50:06 ThickAsThieves: it's been a while since i looked into possible competition though
