00:10:48 asciilifeform: switch ?!!

00:12:37 asciilifeform: and even not considering this absurdity, you would have same problem as vasectomy patient (the sperm gets reabsorbed and your immune system begins to generate antibodies against it. with bonus measurable extra risk of alzheimer's)

00:14:13 pete_dushenski: it's on my radar

00:14:14 asciilifeform: just drop it in your 'v'

00:14:17 asciilifeform: and rebuild

00:14:20 asciilifeform: supposing it matters

00:14:39 pete_dushenski: myeah, at 35 connections now. all is well.

00:14:48 asciilifeform: (it makes no practical difference, the patch is cosmetic and i won't be surprised if it is not considered for inclusion in a release)

00:15:14 asciilifeform: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=07-01-2016#1362559 << for fuckssake, why??!!

Their grievances, like everyone else’s, can be addressed. But not before they put down the guns."

00:18:36 asciilifeform: ... so that it can be serbia'd

00:19:41 asciilifeform: kinda funny how americans laughed in '50s-'60s re: soviet cars costing a year of pay of average labourer there

00:20:01 asciilifeform: whereas now...

00:20:08 pete_dushenski: how the tables have turned

00:21:23 asciilifeform: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=07-01-2016#1362496 << there ISN'T such a thing, not one that doesn't fuck you up in readily-detectable (litigable !!111) ways.

00:22:03 asciilifeform: ovulation comes with a ready off switch - spermatogenesis does not.

00:28:31 assbot: More Swedes than ever are moving abroad - The Local ... ( http://bit.ly/1K0D0Ww )

00:28:42 asciilifeform: 'However according to Solevid, there has been little detailed research on the specific reasons Swedes seek new lives abroad. "There is stunningly little knowledge of these people and why they move," she said, adding that her team intended to investigate the issue.'

00:28:45 asciilifeform: ahahahaha

00:28:53 asciilifeform: MEGA-MYSTERY!1111

00:29:04 asciilifeform: who could possibly guess why they move.

00:29:23 asciilifeform: mendacious fucktards.

00:30:56 asciilifeform: (iirc, swedes - just like finns - who move to thailand, not only escape 'allah snackbar', but pay 0 tax, and can come back for socialist pension, health, etc. whenever they like...)

00:32:45 mircea_popescu: hahaha. and if "america" whatever that is would no longer be a populace opressed by "the rule of law", everyone'd be very happy and could put down their weapons.

00:33:02 mircea_popescu: so how abo0ut the simple message whatever anon politruk needs to hear is, "go fucking hang, we won't need weapons anymore"

00:33:22 mircea_popescu: any chance of that ? everyone employed by usg commits suicide over the weekend, usher paradise on earth ?

00:33:25 mircea_popescu: do your fucking part, eh!

00:33:26 asciilifeform: will work about as well as it did for nestor mahno.

00:34:27 asciilifeform: also picture standing in front of the nuremberg rally and telling ss 'go all hang!111'

00:34:35 mircea_popescu: "addressed" pshhhh.

00:34:52 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform these schmucks ain't got the balls for no rallies.

00:35:24 asciilifeform: mega-empires, their standing armies, and demented fuhrers don't hang automagically

00:35:41 asciilifeform: somebody has to clean'em up.

00:35:57 mircea_popescu: "There is stunningly little knowledge of these people and why they move," << nordic system is a great system, provided you only ask the people who stay behind.

00:36:02 mircea_popescu: by this measure, africa is also a great place to live.

00:36:23 asciilifeform: actually it's also beautiful if you ask the folks who moved to thailand.

00:36:29 asciilifeform: while collecting their phreeeeeeeee

00:37:50 mircea_popescu: hey, every idiocy is beautiful for as long as you're not paying for it.

00:37:54 mircea_popescu: hence, modern "art".

00:38:12 mircea_popescu: everyone's idea of lol except for the poor schmuck paying for his artistique daughter's abortions.

00:38:30 asciilifeform: has anybody aborted straight to the canvas yet ??

00:38:40 asciilifeform: or is that menstrual chick still state-of-the-art

00:39:12 mircea_popescu: it is a screaming testament to how dullard the chicks are that this hath not occured to them yet.

00:39:25 mircea_popescu: nicely mirroring the okcupid-no-bash debacle.

00:40:00 asciilifeform: aha!

00:40:05 asciilifeform: but NOW they can!111

00:40:20 mircea_popescu: can only helps the guy with a can opener.

00:40:46 asciilifeform: https://pbs.twimg.com/media/BujQQsDCAAAk6GG.png:large << as in this classic

00:40:47 assbot: ... ( http://bit.ly/1S757Lt )

00:41:25 mircea_popescu: why the fuck did they blackbar her teats.

00:41:27 mircea_popescu: idiots.

00:41:39 asciilifeform: no idea. iirc there is an uncensored shot somewhere

00:41:48 asciilifeform: (taken by one of many hundreds of people who watched)

00:42:22 mircea_popescu: nitwitty seamstresses. "oh, i put a fig leaf on david". well... hopefully vlad the impaler puts a little something up your tightest hole.

00:42:58 asciilifeform: countdown to 'edgy' art supply shops selling canvas-and-mifepristone-pill kit !111

00:44:21 mircea_popescu: it boggles my mind that they're using all the weird shit when rivanol irrigation'd do the trick just fine.

00:45:54 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: hard to 'DIY' with foley catheter

00:46:22 mircea_popescu: way the fuck safer and cleanner than anything 3rd party'd do.

00:46:42 asciilifeform: cleaner than pill ?

00:46:44 mircea_popescu: the african country of the us has a lulzy history of "we no got acridine we jump off table on knife hiar"

00:46:48 mircea_popescu: yes.

00:46:53 mircea_popescu: pill is a mess.

00:48:03 asciilifeform: at any rate, the shittier the shitland, the more preoccupied the rulers are with conscripting people to make people

00:48:17 asciilifeform: so BingoBoingo wasn't entirely wrong

00:51:36 mircea_popescu: in other news, that mifepristone reminds me a lot of diethylstilbestrol (anyone know the story of this particular thaliomidoid ?). romania uses levonorgestrel almost exclusively.

00:52:01 asciilifeform: also in usa, iirc.

00:52:04 *: mircea_popescu used to keep a notable stash, mostly because the whole army of sluts/students/tramps and assorted vagabonds didn't trust themselves with it.

00:52:12 asciilifeform: wai wut

00:52:18 asciilifeform: how's that

00:52:21 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i didn't think the usa even had anything.

00:52:47 asciilifeform: levonorgestrel is sold by, possibly, the pound, in every pharmacy here.

00:53:01 asciilifeform: and why wouldn't they trust themselves with it

00:53:35 mircea_popescu: cuz no fixed domicile ?

00:53:45 asciilifeform: ah hm

00:53:56 mircea_popescu: i suppose in a sense i offered wallet services o.O

00:56:01 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: but no longer keep stash ?

00:56:34 mircea_popescu: notrly.

00:56:56 asciilifeform: how come ?

00:57:14 mircea_popescu: not really entertaining random tramps so much anymoar.

00:57:19 mircea_popescu: age gets to us all.

01:08:57 BingoBoingo: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=07-01-2016#1362521 << No version string testing?

01:10:46 mircea_popescu: "I liked fraudsters better when it had a paywall (and I couldn't read it for lack of fraudsters credits)."

01:10:55 mircea_popescu: especially funny seeing how the only way to not have credits was to... read it.

01:11:09 asciilifeform: l0lz!

01:11:12 asciilifeform: where was this

01:12:12 mircea_popescu: https://www.reddit.com/r/Bitcoin/comments/3zqeqy/the_intellectual_culling_of_gavin_andresen/

01:14:33 BingoBoingo: ;;later tell pete_dushenski What qntra not authorative enough to publish truefax confirmed in multiple outlets?

01:14:33 gribble: The operation succeeded.

01:18:33 BingoBoingo: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=08-01-2016#1362613 << It sure does and the answer is the same, more hormones. Plenty of androgens including plain old testosterone will shut down spermatagenesis by shutting down the HPTA axis and silencing leydig cells.

01:18:33 assbot: Logged on 08-01-2016 00:22:03; asciilifeform: ovulation comes with a ready off switch - spermatogenesis does not.

01:20:22 mircea_popescu: taking more testosterone is not unlike adding more nitrocelulose to your gasoline.

01:20:32 mircea_popescu: it makes the car be sporty-er you say ?

01:20:46 BingoBoingo: Sure, but for birth control, works.

01:20:53 mircea_popescu: so does hanging.

01:21:36 BingoBoingo: But you can't reverse hanging with a 4 week course of breast cancer drugs

01:22:00 mircea_popescu: speaking of which, i remember the enchanted time of the 80s when gasoline shortages and rationing + the universal theft of "accomplished socialism" meant all the workers at the paints factory ran their cars on stolen raw toluene.

01:22:08 mircea_popescu: imagine that lulz if you will.

01:22:56 BingoBoingo: This is a beautiful imagining

01:26:50 mircea_popescu: (in fairness, it was the fuel of choice of f1 engines in the 80s, but it really is much too high octane to use in shitty ro-made engines of the era. not to mention carcinogenic)

01:27:57 BingoBoingo: Here they've been bouncing up and down the percentage of fun nitrogen compounds available in racing fuel for the past decade or two

01:29:40 *: mircea_popescu vaguely remembers a prototype to use toluene as nuclear plant coolant, too. imagine the fun of that!

01:31:17 BingoBoingo: Of all the ways that could go wrong, I wonder if there's some small, but existing chance that could make the big detonation

01:31:34 mircea_popescu: imagine the lulz of your coolant blowing up lol

01:31:49 BingoBoingo: 4Real

01:32:08 mircea_popescu: "we no longer have a coolant line." "because hydrogen explosion ?" "no, that's why we no longer have a roof. but that came after the coolant blew the line up."

01:32:27 BingoBoingo: And if some material is critical in the right way while the coolant blows up in just the right way...

01:33:03 mircea_popescu: pretty much everything goes critical once coolant goes away in an unplanned manner.

01:33:26 mircea_popescu: experiments in japan and other places are relevantg.

01:34:45 *: BingoBoingo just imagines as unfortunate reactor housing shape providing lensing as this happens

01:52:12 asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: approximately as likely as taking a king-sized shit forming critical mass

01:52:35 BingoBoingo: Obviously you've never eaten at Chipotle

01:57:06 thestringpuller: Chipotle is delicious even if it requires chipotle-away.

04:17:55 assbot: Logged on 28-10-2015 00:47:01; mats: this is the 'we know where the bugs _may_ hide, what locks _may_ have master key, so layer accordingly' defense. and often, variations of aslr are involved, despite how you feel about 'if they're in you've got bigger problems anyways'

04:19:45 phf: ben_vulpes: you call that thing like void foo(args) { IMPLEMENT_RANDOMIZE_STACK(foo(args)); ...}, static makes nLoops shared, so the logic is, you set it to some random value between 1 and 21 and then recurse down that many times, "randomizing" the stack

04:20:43 ben_vulpes: but but why

04:21:35 ben_vulpes: so this gathering nausea in the pit of my stomach when i read through implement_randomize_stack is perhaps an intuitive clue

04:24:12 phf: they randomize all the stacks that are exposed to the network

04:24:50 phf: so in case you get a stack overflow in the exposed code, doing a shellbuffer return becomes mildly trickier

04:26:01 ben_vulpes: why would do people use programming languages that do this?

04:26:13 ben_vulpes: aaa

04:27:46 punkman: I remember reading that gcc might optimize that away too

04:30:20 phf: maybe? gcc does TCO, but the code does foo(); return; rather then return foo(); so who knows..

11:16:09 mircea_popescu: copypaste argentina is ok. the weather is nice, the food is excellent, it's not terribly expensive and the government is a joke. for your purpose it is excellent, you can get a passport for a few grand nqa.

11:16:36 mircea_popescu: nevertheless, the people are idiots on an african level, and on the whole on their own strength on the open market not worth the price of a decent burial.

11:16:51 mircea_popescu: this, from what i hear, should be no change from the fillipines.

11:17:10 copypaste: i want to renounce my passport before the USG goes under because such event, which i think will happen in my lifetime, will make me stateless

11:17:20 copypaste: but you can't renounce your US citizenship before acquiring another one

11:17:36 mircea_popescu: so then it's perfect for you.

11:17:52 copypaste: the USG is already so bankrupt that it stopped adding passport pages, you have to pay them for a whole new passport

11:18:02 copypaste: they also are not issuing passports if they think you owe them money

11:18:20 copypaste: source https://travel.state.gov/content/passports/en/news/visa-pages-no-longer-issued.html

11:19:07 mircea_popescu: been on for a while. (and was predicted a year or two before it happened, also in the log)

11:20:03 copypaste: the thing about the pages is what surprises me...

11:20:23 copypaste: they say that it's to follow "international standards" and to make the passport more "secure"

11:20:33 mircea_popescu: ya well.

11:20:33 copypaste: i fail to see how it increases security at all

11:20:40 mircea_popescu: i'm romanian, i never gave a shit.

11:20:58 copypaste: Romania, now that's a good passport

11:21:17 mircea_popescu: yeah. lulziest case of the hare and the turtle ever. all my life that i can remember romanians thought it's the worst

11:21:26 mircea_popescu: then it turned out... one of the better that exist.

11:21:47 copypaste: the Philippine passport is one of the worst

11:22:05 mircea_popescu: i imagine.

11:22:09 copypaste: you get visa free access to some countries in Africa, its neighbors in Asia (but not any of the actually important ones - like China or Japan), and some south american countries

11:22:11 copypaste: and that's all

11:22:19 mircea_popescu: british is prolly the worst, largest selection of people who hate them

11:22:37 copypaste: eh, i would say that the US passport is by far the worst

11:22:45 copypaste: when people ask which country i am from anad they are strangers, I say Canada

11:22:49 copypaste: simply to avoid any confrontation

11:23:38 mircea_popescu: lol funny thing : while i was in costa rica i was considering going to new zealand. went to british consulate that handled the whole slew of dominions, woman told me i need a visa. was all wtf'd, wrote to the ro exterior minister at the time (young guy from my party) going wtf. the VERY NEXT DAY it was announced the visa requirement was mutually dropped.

11:23:42 copypaste: it was one of the better ones before they made these new rules

11:23:48 mircea_popescu: a week latter the letter arrived, and he was like... bwhahahahaha.

11:24:25 copypaste: haha

11:24:50 copypaste: New Zealand seems nice, but how they treat Kim Dotcom will show their true colors

11:24:59 mircea_popescu: eh it's bullshit. this was before the earthquake.

11:25:01 copypaste: Now Australia on the other hand, fuck that entire continent

11:25:10 mircea_popescu: and before the japan stove incident.

11:26:09 mircea_popescu: mnop

11:26:32 copypaste: well it's about a guy whose country ceases to exist and he gets stuck in an airport arrival area for over a year

11:26:48 copypaste: i have a feeling this will soon happen on a massive scale to Americans, when the USG goes under

11:27:25 mircea_popescu: lol prescience.

11:27:32 copypaste: except instead of just letting potentially thousands of people stick around in an airport, they'll just be loaded in a cargo plane and dumped over whatever remains of the midwest :p

11:27:52 copypaste: so, i would like to acquire another citizenship before that happens :D

11:28:05 mircea_popescu: experience shows that it never pays to wait to be shat on by the corporate fiction that supposedly owns you.

11:28:20 mircea_popescu: it behooves one to be part of the group that stabs the thing to death and drinks its blood.

11:29:34 mircea_popescu: much much better to be, if not one of odovacer's men, at least any of the other "barbarian"'s retinue than to hang out with the so-called "count" bracilla at ravenna.

12:09:31 asciilifeform: he can probably get a nuke for a couple grand.

12:09:39 asciilifeform: but can a human ?

12:09:46 copypaste: haha, indeed

12:10:00 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform for the record, you're talking to a guy with an actual record of up-and-getting-out

12:10:01 copypaste: the requirement on the books for an Argentine passport is 2 years residency

12:10:08 copypaste: quite a low residency requirement, copared to other countries

12:10:14 mircea_popescu: you should prolly spend more time asking questions than sprouting sententiousness.

12:10:17 asciilifeform: copypaste: yeah that's what i thought

12:10:37 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: that was a question. can ~i~ walk in with a few $k and get it.

12:10:42 mircea_popescu: yes.

12:10:44 asciilifeform: like buying milk.

12:10:50 copypaste: compared to Philippines, where the requirement is 10; unless you get married (Philippines has no divorce, only country other than Vatican City with no divorce laws on the books, or even in Congress)

12:10:55 mircea_popescu: no, not like buying milk.

12:10:57 copypaste: if you're married the requirement is 5

12:11:12 mircea_popescu: copypaste argentina has no abortion.

12:11:18 copypaste: neither does Philippines

12:11:25 copypaste: no abortion or divorce :D

12:11:28 mircea_popescu: fortunately uruguay is right there.

12:11:46 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: aha! you said 'not like buying milk'

12:11:53 asciilifeform: this means peopleskillz, no??11

12:12:03 mircea_popescu: were you fishing for a nail to hang your explanation on ?

12:12:13 mircea_popescu: no dude. it means hiring a lawyer.

12:12:28 asciilifeform: ah ok

12:12:30 mircea_popescu: you don't buy new teeth like buying milk, either.

12:12:33 mircea_popescu: gotta hire a dentist.

12:12:43 copypaste: now this is true

12:12:45 asciilifeform: ah so it is like in usa, but with a couplea zeros shaved off the price

12:12:49 copypaste: in the third world a lawyer can make miracles happen

12:12:54 mircea_popescu: a coupla couples.

12:12:58 asciilifeform: neato

12:13:07 copypaste: lawyers typically know exactly who to bribe, saving you the trouble of finding out yourself

12:13:17 copypaste: (and perhaps bribing the only autist in the country, thereby landing yourself in jail)

12:13:31 mircea_popescu: more or less. in this case it's mostly because you probably don't speak spanish to a level acceptable in court.

12:16:33 asciilifeform: with parents.

12:16:39 asciilifeform: is how this worked.

12:17:18 copypaste: i see.

12:17:33 copypaste: in USA, you are required to even get passports for your kids

12:17:36 copypaste: even if they are infants

12:17:41 copypaste: otherwise, they cannot come with you

12:17:46 asciilifeform: in usa passport is a travel document

12:18:08 copypaste: sure

12:18:28 asciilifeform: in su - was identifying document that, with some extra verbiage stamped on, doubled as travel passport

12:18:42 copypaste: actually, once i got mine i started using it as an identification document, which would lead to weird looks

12:18:50 copypaste: due to the main ID document in USA being a driver's license

12:18:54 copypaste: but due to my disability, i do not drive

12:19:13 copypaste: you can get a "non drivers driver license" (real name), but the line was so long and i already had a passport

12:19:13 asciilifeform: folks who do not drive in usa typically get issued peculiar non-driving driver's license

12:19:14 asciilifeform: (yes)

12:19:25 asciilifeform: it is stamped 'not valid for driving' or the like

12:19:30 copypaste: yes, i happened to have recieved the passport before the other one

12:19:33 copypaste: so i just never got the other one

12:19:39 copypaste: since the passport sufficed, even at banks

12:20:11 copypaste: i haven't been in the USA since 2014 though

12:20:16 asciilifeform: phun phakt, most folks in usaschwitz have no passport.

12:20:19 asciilifeform: they don't need it.

Couple days ago, I get a notice from post office with that tracking no.

15:11:49 mircea_popescu: heh. yeah, vhs tapes.

15:11:58 copypaste: because i'm ill, i go to doctors a lot. it's cheap in the third world, and they write me prescriptions for things that are hard to get in the US. so anyway, i always go see chinese doctors.

15:12:10 copypaste: there are american doctors which see foreigners, and also filipinos who studied in america

17:01:50 assbot: #49149 (Current install of qt4-mac 4.8.7_2 fails to install qmake) – MacPorts ... ( http://bit.ly/1n8dREc )

17:02:09 kakobrekla: some if not most silver thermal pastes dont actually conduct electricity

17:02:15 ascii_butugychag: 'It does install qmake, just not where it was installed before. ..... This change was made to allow parallel install of qt4 and qt5 (and, possible, other qt# variations). If you're having issues with other ports that depend on qt4-mac, please open a ticket for each and/or list them here & we will work hard to get them fixed promptly.

17:02:17 mircea_popescu: ^

17:02:27 ascii_butugychag: '... We knew this change would break other ports, but given that there are some 100 ports that depend on qt4-mac, we can't test them all. Thanks for your understanding.'

17:02:29 mircea_popescu: i never heard of metal colloid thermopaste shorting anything

17:02:41 ascii_butugychag: mircea_popescu: what do you suppose a resistor is made of ?

17:02:49 mircea_popescu: ceramics ?

17:03:07 ascii_butugychag: take the paste, take ohmmeter, see

17:03:16 ascii_butugychag: doesn't so much matter that it is a paste.

17:03:42 mircea_popescu: by this theory a good way to make a window is by mixing diamonds in the concrete.

17:05:12 ben_vulpes: ascii_butugychag: if you're looking for something to do with those old mac laptops, openbsd 5.8 runs like a dream on 'em

17:05:36 ascii_butugychag: ben_vulpes: this is not an old laptop

17:05:41 ascii_butugychag: this is butugychag laptop.

17:06:17 mircea_popescu: bluish hue ?

17:06:24 ascii_butugychag: and if your 'runs like a dream' doesn't include motherfucking suspend mode, i'm not interested

17:07:26 kakobrekla: what ascii is saying, take water and measure conductivity while gradually adding salts, but silver pastes are [mostly] safe in this user case

17:07:33 kakobrekla: distilled water that is.

17:07:56 mircea_popescu: and what if i take distilled water and add silver shavings ?

17:08:36 ben_vulpes: ascii_butugychag: i'll check in on zzz and ZZZ, ascii_butugychag

17:08:42 kakobrekla: they will sink :)

17:08:53 mircea_popescu: " we can't test them all. Thanks for your understanding." << what the fuck are we understanding ? that the kids don't belong anywhere near a computer, off to the farm ?

17:09:05 ascii_butugychag: zzz?

17:09:58 mircea_popescu: ascii_butugychag incidentally does your desktop do "suspend mode" ? if not why not ?

17:10:12 mircea_popescu: linton_s_dawson funny that all the poorfags are so preoccupied with THIS nowadays, huh.

17:10:14 ascii_butugychag: mircea_popescu: desktop doesn't go in motherfucking briefcase

17:10:17 ben_vulpes: also, this machine is not suited to be a portable anymore.

17:10:32 *: adlai notes that bitcoin.org's latest "Appendix A" is basically a restatement of his latest qntra's "footnote #3"

17:10:37 ben_vulpes: aged, delicate, valuable. should be treated as such.

17:10:49 *: ben_vulpes will be acquiring more vintage hardware in this vein

17:10:52 adlai: (it deals with wtf "hard" and "soft" forking means, which most derps seem to assume they understand)

17:11:11 ascii_butugychag: and if the windows don't go back to their places when different sets of monitors are unplugged and re-plugged, also not interested

17:11:29 ben_vulpes: ascii_butugychag: sounds like a problem for your window manager

17:11:41 ben_vulpes: x11 wms do this better than os x does.

17:11:48 ascii_butugychag: and i'm not interested in spending ANOTHER MOTHERFUCKING SIX MONTHS fighting the graphics card driver

17:12:02 ascii_butugychag: ben_vulpes: on WHICH portable gpu ?

17:12:12 ascii_butugychag: does x11 run worth SHIT

17:12:21 ben_vulpes: i doubt it's leveraging the gpu at all

17:12:51 ben_vulpes: listen, i just want a machine that's not running os x with the hardware quality build of the golden-era macintosh laptops.

17:13:14 ben_vulpes: if that means working in terminals or not using any chrome in x11, so be it.

17:13:15 ascii_butugychag: keep in mind, if there aren't at least 2880 pixels horizontally, i'm not interested.

17:13:25 ascii_butugychag: and i can't maths in a terminal.

17:13:52 mircea_popescu: i can maths in my sleep!

17:14:24 BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> i never heard of metal colloid thermopaste shorting anything << Apparently with silver colloid a concern is possibility of becoming capacitive after cooking long enough. Silver is always a special case because grand chamption conductor

17:14:27 ascii_butugychag: go generate 10,000 node flow graph in your sleep, thx

17:14:36 mircea_popescu: i suppose.

17:14:57 mircea_popescu: ascii_butugychag that's not math that's kandinsky.

17:15:00 ben_vulpes: anyways, your penchant for finding what is wrong with anything aside, openbsd happily supplants os x on mac hardware. for those willing to endure some pain to get away from the shitgnomes, and who have not been obsessively tending a gentoo installation since 1999.

17:15:10 ascii_butugychag: 'some pain'

17:15:24 ascii_butugychag: as in, NOTHING which i actually ~need~ on the job, works

17:15:24 ben_vulpes: life is suffering.

17:15:29 ascii_butugychag: but that's ok, broomstick, aha?

17:15:40 ben_vulpes: either under the reign of steve or others.

17:15:47 kakobrekla: BingoBoingo but you dont smear it over the whole cpu do you ? an also you can just tape over any elect conducting parts, no?

17:15:49 ben_vulpes: this is not a machine for $work

17:16:14 ascii_butugychag: i get paid to make xyz happen. and the budget makes provisions for shooting, say, up to six rabid weasels. BUT NOT 6,666,666.

17:17:38 mircea_popescu: incidentally, anyone can conceive of any reason NOT to have an apple-microsoft merger ?

17:17:57 ascii_butugychag: mircea_popescu: same reason today as in 1997

17:18:04 ascii_butugychag: ceremonial antitrust

17:18:08 ascii_butugychag: (ditto intel & amd)

17:18:21 ascii_butugychag: also each relies on the good-cop/bad-cop symbiosis

17:18:22 mircea_popescu: i bet you i could justify 100mn in bonuses for myself + 1-2bn in consulting fees for everyone involved doing a hp-compaq deal out of these two

17:18:51 mircea_popescu: then some dumb broad could preside over it to get all the social media femitards hot and bothered

17:18:59 mircea_popescu: and then... welll... ibm is still arouind, right ?

17:19:05 ascii_butugychag: would you also try to merge... the products ?

17:19:08 ascii_butugychag: because wtf

17:19:12 mircea_popescu: what products ?

17:19:20 mircea_popescu: ms always wanted a phone, apple always wanted an os.

17:19:23 mircea_popescu: it's automerged.

17:19:26 BingoBoingo: kakobrekla: I did the make a dot and let the heatsink smash it into place thing. There is a tape shim that goes over rest of CPU already, but old paste found its way under there before I removed it.

17:19:53 ascii_butugychag: 'apple always wanted an os' -- is mircea_popescu posting from 1995 ?

17:19:59 ascii_butugychag: dafuq

17:20:02 mircea_popescu: eh spare me. they don't have an os.

17:20:18 mircea_popescu: they stole some foss and filed the serials off, butterfly labs style.

17:20:48 adlai: mircea_popescu: "illusion of choice" aka pretty much the only talent that .il still encourages youngsters to hone... salesmanship

17:21:09 mircea_popescu: pfff. nobody actively makes that choice anymore. it's like encouraging the choice of stick vs nonstick driving.

17:21:10 mircea_popescu: forget it.

17:21:45 mircea_popescu: the people who run "whatever i just want to" and the people who "fuck you, drop dead" are the only remaining division, and in this context the two staying unmerged is nonsensical.

17:21:54 *: adlai knows at least one person who graduated from not-choosing to linux, and that's one-too-many for moloch

17:22:01 BingoBoingo: * adlai notes that bitcoin.org's latest "Appendix A" is basically a restatement of his latest qntra's "footnote #3" << Make a blog point this out. If ben_vulpes can blog so can you.

17:22:56 mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo he's still recovering from the castrating influence of bad parenting, doesn't quite feel at ease rubbing loser's nose in their own shit.

17:22:57 adlai: the trouble with a blog is that it rapidly fills up with your own bullshit. people get so sick of my bullshit at ~100x dilution, in here; imagine how bad it'd get in my own garden

17:23:18 mircea_popescu: for all you know chicks will read it and fill your inbox with written tits.

17:23:22 mircea_popescu: happened to me.

17:23:32 BingoBoingo: adlai: But shitting in your own garden is actually beneficial. The plants like it.

17:24:42 BingoBoingo: adlai: Anyways wouldn't writing a simple CL blogotron for your own use be a welcome sanity break from the scalplsd

17:25:28 adlai: in other phamily-related news, my lispm arbitrage has failed, due to usg-sponsor eagerness to sponsor as much as possible... but therein lies the arb, and anybody who does sponsor usg (or have family who do) is welcome and encouraged to pursue this further

17:26:04 adlai: in case the signal was too noisy right there: buying a working lisp machine, and donating it to a museum (of which there are several in the DC area), will get you a nice tax break

17:26:36 adlai: ofc you (or the other end of your arbitrage) need to already be paying usg taxes, but there are a bunch of people who do

17:26:50 mircea_popescu: kinda how all museums were built.

17:27:27 kakobrekla: i dont really see the point in the 'working' part

17:27:44 kakobrekla: it not like they will be turning it on and it will stop working over time with noone to fix it around

17:27:57 adlai: BingoBoingo: cl blogotrons exist, these days my blog-time is spent 'auditing' coleslaw vs hyde. scalpl, otoh, is pretty much one of a kind; cf ascii_butugychag on professional vs plebescite tooling...

17:28:03 mircea_popescu: he has a point.

17:28:22 adlai: mircea_popescu lacks an unambiguous antecedent

17:28:46 mircea_popescu: kakobrekla

17:29:22 ascii_butugychag: adlai: this is a sad joke, the machine's value is more or less ENTIRELY in the fact that it WORKS

17:29:29 adlai: so break it on the way over, i don't care! but all else aside, it's more educational to the budding usg-arsonist if they can play with a working doodad

17:29:36 ascii_butugychag: non-working but identically-appearing boxes are much cheaper

17:29:39 ascii_butugychag: and more common.

17:29:43 mircea_popescu: ascii_butugychag from his pov, the value of the machine is entirely in "what you paidf for it"

17:29:44 adlai: ... and what ascii_butugychag just said.

17:29:51 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 12300 @ 0.00048974 = 6.0238 BTC [-]

17:30:10 ascii_butugychag: my point is that museum can get it considerably cheaper.

17:30:15 adlai: mircea_popescu: you do need to get the museum to agree that your donation was worth anything

17:30:25 ascii_butugychag: and 'what i paid for it' is almost NOTHING

17:30:34 ascii_butugychag: so fuck that.

17:31:01 *: adlai failed his arbitrage on this basis - usg-sponsor doesn't want to engage museum(s) in negotiation, but maybe $alertLurker does

17:31:10 mircea_popescu: adlai notrly. as long as they take it, it's not their job to value it for fiscality.

17:31:55 adlai: you have to get a receipt (/me is not enough of a taxpayer to get the exact word right, maybe it's something else?) attesting to the value of your donation

17:32:05 adlai: you have to get a receipt (/me is not enough of a taxpayer to get the exact word right, maybe it's something else?) attesting to the value of your donation

17:32:11 adlai: !up ascii_butugychag

17:32:45 ascii_butugychag: adlai is correct

17:33:48 *: adlai is also drunk, late for dinner, overleveraged on hopium, etc etc... bbl

17:34:26 adlai: but please, this is applicable to ANY USG TAXPAYER in the audience. 3btc = nice tax break!

17:34:47 adlai: all you need is somebody to drive the thing to a museum and negotiate a little

17:34:58 adlai: (not necessarily in that order)

17:35:10 mircea_popescu: the museum doesn't issue the fucking receipt lol. whoever you buy it from does.

17:35:48 BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> the museum doesn't issue the fucking receipt lol. whoever you buy it from does. << Actually in USia receipts are given by museums/charities for donations

17:36:01 mircea_popescu: yes. on the basis of the provenance documents.

17:36:23 mircea_popescu: "this vase so and so was donated to us by x who bought it at an auction held by sootheby's valuying it at 4mn".

17:36:27 BingoBoingo: With discrepancy between seller and charity receipts grounds for IRSape

17:37:22 ascii_butugychag: mircea_popescu is correct. otherwise you could set up faux 'museum' and 'donate' junk 'worth' millions.

17:37:57 ascii_butugychag: and just about any serious deviation from your social stature in the spirit of 'peasant doesn't get to own a rembrandt, wtf' will attract auditors very, very quickly in usa.

17:38:18 ascii_butugychag: usg knows very well who has any business writing off serious sums and who does not.

17:40:28 *: adlai hopes that at least one other lurker [knows somebody who] will blink more than once at a 3btc tax deduction

17:41:02 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 4450 @ 0.00048974 = 2.1793 BTC [-]

17:41:08 mircea_popescu: adlai let me put it this way : s.nsa (which according to some doesn't even exist) just threw away ~5 btc over a delivery bet it didn't even HAVE to make. and i forgbot all about it until pete_d said something.

17:41:13 mircea_popescu: the death of the middle, eh.

17:41:34 adlai: the beautiful thing about the btcfiat market is that it means different things for different people

17:42:04 *: adlai has paid well over current market price for btc... what if those are the btc that ascii would've got?

17:42:24 mircea_popescu: and i'm not even going to pester alf about making another one for 2016 expiry. truth be told i'm rather pleasantly impressed with how s.nsa work is coming along of late.

17:43:24 *: adlai has yet to read latest statement; also, yet to leave pub for dinner date; also, yet to order bill, due to israeli ineptitude at peripheral vision/hearing...

18:59:32 mircea_popescu: so basically you have... a half specified, unstable implementation of a samovar\

18:59:36 mircea_popescu: they can't be that expensive ?

19:00:06 mircea_popescu: i mean i can't justify paying a few grand for one on the grounds of the two cups a year i drink, but you're paying more for the tea as it is.

19:00:09 thestringpuller: mircea_popescu: your friends import tea/grow it themselves?

19:00:16 phf: it's mostly the variety and availability. i can combine various kettles/teapots and get a decent result

19:00:41 mircea_popescu: thestringpuller not afaik, but you know... the man without an oscilloscope goes and visits alf's house whenever he needs one.

19:01:35 thestringpuller: i thought alf would be like seinfeld episode there. "You gonna return it without cheese-y fingerprints over it?"

19:03:26 phf: well wood samovars are out for home use, electric ones i think are mostly gimmicks, i mean i might as well have a trained bear at home

19:04:13 mircea_popescu: afaik samovars were in fact used at the table. iirc even in the us you can get smokeless charcoal delivered

19:05:53 phf: hmm, that's actually worth a try. you still need to heat up the teapot though, so it goes on top of samovar, which means that whatever you burn is going to change the flavor of tea

19:06:46 phf: so fully depends on how smokeless that charcoal actually is, and those that i saw used for grilling tend to produce a nasty chemical miasma

19:07:33 mircea_popescu: of course the us is pretty huge on the whole bbq thing. i can attest i had charcoal-made pulled pork and other such stuff and was wunderbar.

19:07:58 mircea_popescu: phf you mean used by random idiot ? ever been to one of their competitive bbq-offs things ?

19:08:50 mircea_popescu: in other news, "Sexy women dress wholesale, customize fashion lady dress FOB Price: US $15 - 25 / Piece Port: HUANG PU PORT Min. Order: 300 Piece/Pieces"

19:10:33 mircea_popescu: but during your us visit i definitely recommend seeing a) a renaissance faire if one's into easy fatties ; b) a bbq-off competition if one's into delicious fats.

19:10:43 mircea_popescu: can even take the pick-ups of a to b for bonus points!

19:15:58 thestringpuller: i'm getting fat as is.

19:16:26 thestringpuller: gf is good about working out and having good body. mine is turning to mush with all this work in the salt mines.

19:18:28 phf: my redneck friends took me to a state fair once, probably best "american" food i've had around DC area. icecream reminds me of the soviet one, that doesn't exist anymore. rich, fatty, none of them "substitutes", they were probably milking cows straight into the icecream mixer

19:18:34 mircea_popescu: and yet another reason i prefer women over men comes to light!

19:32:49 phf: i recently talked to a 15 year old, who told me that 2015 was more culturally significant then all the years since 1970 combined, he then proceeded to name things that happened in 2015 that i've never heard of. i said "excuse me" and walked away, but i still can't grok it.

19:44:31 phf: more kazantip, then afrikaburn

19:46:12 mircea_popescu: i somehow doubt anyone taught them kids how to stay within humanity while camping.

20:18:12 mircea_popescu: by now a clearer idea of this particular contemporary stupidity of the uneducated but bright young folk is starting to structure itself in my head, and ima call it bayesian.

20:18:15 phf: eliade's "yoga immortality and freedom" is still best exposition

20:18:42 mircea_popescu: it has a lot to do with the sad situation where "everything not encountered before is surprising" - which is, incidentally, just another way to say "i'm stupid".

20:19:05 mircea_popescu: it also has a lot to do with an implicit presumption that the world is comprehensible in a very mechanicist way.

20:19:18 phf: !up Chesterly

20:19:26 mircea_popescu: he for instance reaches for phenomenology (what happened!!!) when nothing on the ground warrants a phenomenological explanation.

20:19:36 mircea_popescu: in clarifying this error, for instgance, eliade would be very useful.

21:05:01 phf: hmm, bayesian thinking is sort of like if you walk looking at the ground and all you see are tiny twigs and then gradually all you see are tiny rocks and you don't have an ability to pull away and notice that you were walking through forest first and then you're at a base of a mountain. it sometimes "works", becase you've been taught that the two classifications exist so you call first forest and the second mountain, but of course

22:06:06 mircea_popescu: "bayesian thinking" is the equivalent of an algebra so defined that all operators are necessarily idempotent and all functions necessarily contiguous.

22:06:28 mircea_popescu: continuous*

23:42:24 mircea_popescu: i've not tried, but i am willing to bet that it'll bne fine.

23:42:29 asciilifeform: and yes if this was a thinkpad with actual ibm logo, this works

23:42:33 mircea_popescu: it is yes.

23:42:38 asciilifeform: but all it is good for is watching pr0n and 'lynx'

23:42:54 asciilifeform: that also !

23:42:59 asciilifeform: i got a bunch of these here

23:43:09 asciilifeform: but none are good for mining u.

23:44:08 asciilifeform: *ruled

23:44:15 asciilifeform: but none will drive a reasonable number of pixels

23:44:16 pete_dushenski: asciilifeform: anyways, you wanted the error logs (!), you got the error logs.

23:44:33 asciilifeform: pete_dushenski: that one looks more like a 'i tried to install shitlinux and got bored' log

23:45:57 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: neato

23:46:05 asciilifeform: but i can do that on a 486.

23:46:08 asciilifeform: just takes a little while.

23:46:12 asciilifeform: that's not the issue.

23:48:42 pete_dushenski: mircea_popescu: lol. "it will please you to know that ibm laptop suspends to disk without issue with ubuntu 10.04" != "girl says it actually compiled trb. SO THERE."

23:48:59 pete_dushenski: anyways.

23:49:41 asciilifeform: any university that didn't have 'jew quota' would rapidly fill up

23:49:52 asciilifeform: and then director would be asked 'why are you running a synagogue here'

23:50:22 mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo hey btw, any coverage over the total deflation of the stock market ponzi ?
