00:42:11 n6: Now when i'm trying to boot from the usb it gets me to 2nd loading green just has red and yellow dots, and seems to stall

00:42:51 n6: I have made a mess of this gentoo thing.

00:43:10 danielpbarron: slower is faster

00:43:39 BingoBoingo: n6: Maybe choose a different source based distro? http://morpheus.2f30.org/

00:44:37 n6: um, think it has to be gentoo here.

00:48:20 mircea_popescu: pete_dushenski haha but why the eagle

00:48:31 BingoBoingo: n6: If you want to follow the already trodden path set out by that guide sure? Why not let your freak flag fly?

00:48:32 ben_vulpes: asciilifeform: i crapped out a 1.25 gig tcpdump :(

00:49:01 asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: what's next, a five litre blood sample ?

00:49:05 ben_vulpes: *sigh*

00:49:06 n6: Don't I need to learn basics before letting freak flag fly?

00:49:07 asciilifeform: a 100kg stool sample ?

00:49:12 ben_vulpes: hey man i shit big

00:49:24 mircea_popescu: shit check that out, alf's quite the poetic library

00:49:37 asciilifeform: lolwat

00:49:58 asciilifeform: is there any english speaker alive who doesn't remember that one

00:50:07 pete_dushenski: mircea_popescu to quote two footnotes...

00:50:10 pete_dushenski: "This is clearly meant to be a derogatory term here despite wealth and prominent position being sine qua non for any sort of meaningful cultural perspective and despite the baseless implication that the world can be more accurately described from the worm’s perspective than the eagle’s."

00:50:16 pete_dushenski: "People working with you when you're a benevolent dictator loved and admired by all don't rebel because they like working with you. Not because they can't. They have to be able to, otherwise they're just as much dead weight, a set of paraplegic "sidekicks" in wheelchairs you have to push around. Incredible how distorted the ant's perception of the eagle's dare is"

00:50:23 mircea_popescu: <n6> I have made a mess of this gentoo thing. << dun worry, you;re not the first one

00:50:40 pete_dushenski: eagles on the mind, it seems.

00:50:44 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i realized while sitting in car that the awk doesn't handle formation of new files, or removal. will post tweaked version later.

00:50:53 asciilifeform: for now, can use this

00:50:53 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform yes. all of them.

00:50:57 asciilifeform: format will not change

00:51:01 asciilifeform: ever.

00:51:02 mircea_popescu: i suspect only russian speakers remember english literature now.

00:51:05 asciilifeform: l0l!!

00:51:09 BingoBoingo: <n6> Don't I need to learn basics before letting freak flag fly? << Hard to get more basic than Morpheus linux

00:51:48 pete_dushenski: mircea_popescu btw that second footnote... is yours.

00:52:01 asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: actually ~working with~ a linux without any package system whatsoever, is not entirely honestly describable as 'basic'

00:52:04 pete_dushenski: first is mine.

00:52:22 mircea_popescu: how you mean ?

00:52:23 asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: because if not for this, 'buildroot' is your linux.

00:52:28 ben_vulpes: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com//?date=01-08-2015#1220453 << is this still the case?

00:52:43 asciilifeform: see log.

00:52:45 BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Everything about 'basic' depends on to which facet of the thing 'basic' is aimed at

00:53:33 BingoBoingo: <asciilifeform> BingoBoingo: because if not for this, 'buildroot' is your linux. << Maybe.

00:53:42 ben_vulpes: hm i can't find the dulap dns record in search.bitcoin-assets.com

00:54:58 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: iirc it wasn't a name

00:55:03 mircea_popescu: yes it was ?

00:55:05 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: but meant something like 'loudmouth'

01:52:14 BingoBoingo: trinque: For that werc seems fine. Almsot entirely static site plus comment form is the challenge

01:52:22 BingoBoingo: And spam filter

01:53:05 trinque: interesting, rc is the plan9 shell right?

01:53:08 trinque: looks so

01:53:15 trinque: how's that thing?

01:55:02 BingoBoingo: I'm not sure rc is jsut the plan9 shell. On Openbsd I see those two letter attached to all kinds of scripts and Openrc is apparently best Gentoo init.

01:56:09 trinque: http://werc.cat-v.org/ << actually looks like it does use the rc shell

01:56:19 trinque: though yup, you see that around elsewhere too

01:56:25 trinque: "run control" maybe?

01:56:40 trinque: in the case of the init systems

01:56:49 BingoBoingo: Maybe? Also a lot of stuff just works on a lot of shells

01:57:09 trinque: https://docs.oracle.com/cd/E19455-01/805-7228/6j6q7uepi/index.html << looks like that's a usage of rc

01:57:10 assbot: Run Control Scripts (System Administration Guide, Volume 1) ... ( http://bit.ly/1IubQWT )

01:58:18 BingoBoingo: I guess plan9 shell could be named rc the same way apache, nginx, and 500 other things are named rc

01:58:24 BingoBoingo: *httpd

01:58:50 trinque: could be it used to have a firm meaning then squished into "uh I dunno man, some shell script like thing"

01:58:53 trinque: happens all the time

01:59:54 BingoBoingo: plan9 rc is just plan9 rc

02:15:14 BingoBoingo: The curse set upon us by Bell Labs is wildly different things running as the same names all because on some superficial level the function they try to do is "the same"

02:15:46 BingoBoingo: Build something else?

02:16:00 n6: Yes lilo but not sure how to set it up to replace grub in this spot

02:16:16 n6: asciilifeform: could you help me?

02:16:27 asciilifeform: n6: whatcha doing

02:16:53 n6: I need to use lilo in place of grub here http://thebitcoin.foundation/gentoo-stage3-amd64-uclibc-hardened-guide-wFullExamples.txt

02:17:25 trinque: what computer are you on

02:17:37 n6: amd64 desktop

02:17:39 trinque: lilo you're gonna have to run each time you change the kernel or end up unbootable

02:17:44 assbot: LILO - Gentoo Wiki ... ( http://bit.ly/1Iufxfd )

02:17:44 trinque: n6: what's the snag?

02:17:55 asciilifeform: trinque: and grub you also reconfigure each time you change the kernel

02:17:58 n6: I think its this version of gentoo its the same error as last time this time with all spelling right

02:18:11 trinque: asciilifeform: nah symlink for current kernel

02:18:18 trinque: doesn't lilo need to eat the kernel each time?

02:18:24 asciilifeform: trinque swaps kernels daily ?

02:18:29 trinque: no

02:18:33 trinque: yet fuck having to get a boot disk

02:18:38 asciilifeform: what boot disk

02:18:43 asciilifeform: run from live machine

02:18:56 trinque: the fail mode of lilo is worse than the fail mode of grub

02:19:08 asciilifeform: why should it fail

02:19:39 asciilifeform: grub2 is an atrocity

02:19:45 asciilifeform: what, 5x the size of therealbitcoin ?

02:19:47 trinque: what's wrong with grub 0.9.whatever

02:19:51 asciilifeform: with own vga drivers, even

02:19:55 trinque: sure sure

02:19:56 asciilifeform: and miniature 32-bit os

02:20:13 decimation: grub struck me as being about 50x more complex than it needed to be

02:20:22 asciilifeform: decimation: try grub2 !

02:20:22 trinque: asciilifeform: ah derp I forgot the guide uses grub2

02:20:30 decimation: yeah, even worse

02:26:06 n6: asciilifeform: Still don't understand, lots of the stuff in this conf I don't know, yet

02:26:17 asciilifeform: gotta start somewhere

02:26:41 n6: Feel like it might really hurt to fail another time.

02:26:54 asciilifeform: take a break

02:26:59 asciilifeform: not everyone has to do everything.

02:27:04 trinque: failure is also good for you

05:32:57 trinque: n6: the guide you followed did not account at all for EFI

05:33:14 trinque: in the EFI case there's even another partition you must have

05:33:56 trinque: the CSM thing I suggested is a way of setting EFI computers into a compatibility mode that behaves like BIOS

05:34:26 n6: trinque: what will it take for me to not have to make a 4th install here. I read your links still don't understand, last time I went without this step it ended poorly.

05:35:17 trinque: you don't have to trash the whole thing; merely reboot, set CSM, boot the livecd, mount, and chroot again

05:35:38 trinque: but first you must figure out where you changed the system to support EFI and change it back

05:36:05 n6: so the grub_platform? or you mean another place?

05:57:55 trinque: because in both cases it'd be because of a flaw, and neither you nor I know of the particular flaws in your firmware

05:58:04 n6: I think only edited the grub_platform file to try efi

05:58:30 trinque: the other place you might've would've been /etc/defaults/grub

07:10:44 punkman: Later, gets job offer through unemployment office. Manager asks if she has kids, oh you do? and you like them? naturally I won't hire you, so you can keep collecting unemployment. Next job, didn't look so great, she complains asks for different one. As the years pass, fewer job offers to fend off.

13:54:52 mircea_popescu: the soldier himself is as eternal as dirt.

14:30:00 Adlai: it's much easier to look at the nature of warfare and say, "oh, it's changing like this, or like that", but the much more significant changes are in its *objectives*

14:46:10 mircea_popescu: "Sweden has traditionally relied heavily on the strong protestant work ethic of its citizens. A cornerstone of the country's welfare system has been a population which has been reluctant to misuse the system. Although taxes have been high and government benefits generous, the strong work ethic has stopped people from taking advantage of the welfare state. Alas, this attitude has been largely abandoned. As time has pass

14:46:11 mircea_popescu: ed, people have adapted to the system."

14:49:03 mircea_popescu: win.

14:49:24 asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: if it is to parse automatically on unattended spy satellite, then yes, something else, not wireshark

14:50:05 ben_vulpes: i am unsurprised to learn that software does not produce human parseable output at the command line

16:00:27 mike_c: Drank the murky what-not and cleared my head

16:00:53 mircea_popescu: yeah, you're needed to overcraft high level items for high level crafters to get them bps

16:01:12 mircea_popescu: and you can always mine, and low q mined stuff fetches a high % premium relative to their net value

16:01:39 mircea_popescu: the challenge in eulora, much like in business, is to scale up while maintaining profitability.

16:01:43 mike_c: I'll start poking again and see if danielpbarron can make use of me. He seems to be king of the land :)

16:02:43 mircea_popescu: what doesn't work is the 'i made a level in five minutes so i'll make 500 levels in 20 hours' linear thing from grinder mmorpgs.

16:03:29 mike_c: I'm not so worried about +ev though. I already have a job.

16:03:55 mircea_popescu: on the other hand yesterday i bought ~10mn worth of thorns.

16:04:00 mike_c: hehe

16:04:07 mircea_popescu: it can add up to dough.

16:05:15 mike_c: hopefully Eulora will accomodate me - someone who is perfectly happy with -ev as long as I'm having fun. This should help supply the people who are more interested in the money.

When the amphibious force approached wit

22:59:08 mircea_popescu: so it's not that it's not "pvp based" it's more that even its pve is really pvp by another name.
