18:26:19 funkenstein_: I'm going back through Buckminster Fuller's mega classic "operator's manual for spaceship earth"

18:27:07 asciilifeform: i srsly have nfi
18:27:10 asciilifeform: was it a warez ?
18:27:14 asciilifeform: i might have what you're looking for

18:27:35 pankkake: I didn't know they died
18:27:51 funkenstein_: it's been several days now
18:28:45 funkenstein_: i2p site?
18:29:01 asciilifeform: most of it is visible via plain www
18:30:42 funkenstein_: well we need a decentralized solution
18:30:58 pankkake: there's a private tracker for ebooks but I haven't contributed enough to have invites
18:31:00 asciilifeform: mirror things !
18:31:15 asciilifeform: 'save yourself and others around you will be saved' (tm)(r)(ru church)

18:35:26 funkenstein_: any good?
18:35:32 asciilifeform: or wait
18:35:45 asciilifeform: i thought q was re conventional meat libraries.
18:36:47 asciilifeform: then no, never seen before.
18:37:04 asciilifeform: looks like a premined alt cum warez.
18:37:16 asciilifeform: doesn't sound esp. decentralized.
18:38:04 asciilifeform: 'LBRY Inc. has reserved 10% of all LBRY credits to fund continued development and provide profit for the founders. '
18:40:16 funkenstein_: hmm yeah not the most inspiring start
18:43:11 funkenstein_: its not really clear to me how they plan to store the content
18:43:22 funkenstein_: looks like a namecoin kind of thing
18:43:48 asciilifeform: it's a classic 'kickstarter scam' item -- the details of making-it-work do not get much thought, because entire thing is a mousetrap, not a restaurant
18:44:30 funkenstein_: perhaps some well meaning folx can get in there and do something
18:44:43 asciilifeform: mousetraps are not convertible into restaurants.
18:44:55 funkenstein_: yeah starting from scratch is looking tempting here
18:45:03 asciilifeform: they do, however, extract coin from gullible 'well meaning folx' very, very well.
18:57:30 funkenstein_: well if we start hearing copyrasts complain about it, we'll know it's the real deal
18:58:29 asciilifeform: funkenstein_: interestingly, i find that the amule network still worx and contains many good scans
19:00:24 funkenstein_: nice, what is it almost 20 years now?
19:00:40 funkenstein_: edonkey2000
19:01:11 asciilifeform: i use 'amule' client
19:01:18 asciilifeform: never even saw the original
19:11:23 pankkake: I used ed2k, then e2dk+weird hacks, then eMule, then many eMule mods, then iMule, then aMule
19:11:38 pankkake: still launch it sometimes
19:13:23 asciilifeform: if what you're looking for is a thing of interest to half dozen people -- whether it's a b&w scan of very old military textbook, or a copy of Tru64 -- amule, if anywhere, is where you'll find it
19:14:13 funkenstein_: amule + KAD has a lot of users in china it looks like
19:14:26 asciilifeform: gotta dispense with the expectation of instant gratification, pankkake . i've found that getting $item out of amule is a weeks, sometimes months-long affair.
19:14:53 asciilifeform: when that 1 user who actually has the thing, has his comp switched on...
19:14:58 funkenstein_: that's been my experience too
19:15:28 pankkake: I grew up with rtc modem internet, I was used to wait a week for a file :)
