00:14:27 penguirker: New blog post: http://contravex.com/2014/08/07/this-is-the-bitcoin-empire-this-is-the-new-yasa/

00:19:57 kakobrekla: here is a random pic http://shrani.si/f/3A/4W/1Dwdwmwt/unnamed.jpg

00:20:26 kakobrekla: it looks nicer in rl though.

00:21:50 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 9021 @ 0.00091043 = 8.213 BTC [-]

00:24:10 mike_c: cool, what's the screen from?

00:25:19 mike_c: you should make the text run vertically with lines in columns instead of rows. then do your best matrix impression.

00:26:06 kakobrekla: not what but where. china.

00:26:47 kakobrekla: it has a built in matrix thingy, if you misaddress the pointer to the screen line it will automatrix.

00:26:56 mike_c: heh

00:34:01 kakobrekla: the purpose of this gadget is not irc. what is it? not tellin. do what i want.

00:34:47 lobbes: <mircea_popescu> there should be a new constitutional amendment. "no one may run for elected office, be it presidential, as member of congress or senate or any other, who can not recite the entirety of all laws, regulations etc" << Does that include all migratory bird treaties?

00:35:45 mike_c: lobbes: or.. there shouldn't be migratory bird treaties. it's like flat tax. simple, yet insufficient.

00:38:34 lobbes: yeah, it is pretty ridiculous

00:45:13 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 9700 @ 0.0009142 = 8.8677 BTC [+]

00:59:27 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 7768 @ 0.00091019 = 7.0704 BTC [-]

01:19:33 asciilifeform: kakobrekla: i've one quite like this.

01:20:52 kakobrekla: at this point, i would be surprised if you didnt!

01:21:23 asciilifeform: kakobrekla: unsurprisingly, i've an embarrassingly large collection of these

01:21:32 kakobrekla: :D

01:22:00 asciilifeform: and is that a beheaded model m ?

01:22:34 kakobrekla: so called 'space saver'

01:22:41 asciilifeform: aha guessed as much.

01:23:25 *: asciilifeform never understood the need to save 'space' by abolishing numbers pad - unless living in a ship, manned capsule of some other variety

01:23:50 kakobrekla: i use a mouse.

01:23:51 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [RENT] 253 @ 0.00407389 = 1.0307 BTC [+] {5}

01:24:05 asciilifeform: for numbers ?!

01:24:40 kakobrekla: lol no, but numpad get in the way and im not much into numerical data entry.

01:25:15 asciilifeform: kakobrekla: lathe coordinates ?

01:25:52 kakobrekla: not in a long time.

01:25:53 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 24317 @ 0.00091545 = 22.261 BTC [+] {3}

01:27:25 *: asciilifeform recently bought a 'proper' lathe - no coordinates, just cranks...

01:27:55 kakobrekla: the only thing i miss is that far right enter for some reason but i have a programmable hw ps2 to usb converter and remaped keys / macros

01:28:28 *: asciilifeform has pretty much the entire numpad programmed as emacs knobs of one kind or another

01:28:37 kakobrekla: mhm

01:35:02 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 7500 @ 0.00091599 = 6.8699 BTC [+]

01:41:08 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 4789 @ 0.00091019 = 4.3589 BTC [-]

01:50:09 decimation: asciilifeform: I have found the extra function keys on my unicomp "model m like" keyboard to be extremely useful for emacs

01:51:52 kakobrekla: fyi you can remap any key to act as a layer switch so have n of different full layouts

01:52:06 decimation: re: keyboards in space capsules: spacex went with a touchscreen with "emergency keys" > http://arstechnica.com/science/2014/05/spacex-shows-off-dragon-v2-its-brand-new-manned-space-capsule/#image-7

01:52:42 decimation: kakbrekla: do you mean something beyond the usual ctrl-meta combinations?

01:52:57 kakobrekla: yea

01:54:47 kakobrekla: theres a number of ways to achieve that, currently im using https://github.com/tmk/tmk_keyboard

01:54:48 assbot: tmk/tmk_keyboard GitHub

01:58:25 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 12500 @ 0.00090935 = 11.3669 BTC [-]

02:01:26 kakobrekla: you can do most if not all of those tricks in os instead but ps2 is becoming a rarity anyway.

02:02:33 asciilifeform: kakobrekla: what i thought you had: http://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=29483.0

02:02:34 assbot: Happy Buckling Keyboard

02:03:38 kakobrekla: it is such http://www.clickykeyboard.com/2012/dec04/001.jpg

02:04:03 kakobrekla: restored, bolt modded.

02:04:11 asciilifeform: bolt?

02:04:25 decimation: huh do they have a unicomp controller gizmo? I assume it's a clone of the model m with usb gadget

02:04:31 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 5600 @ 0.00090834 = 5.0867 BTC [-]

02:04:51 kakobrekla: well you need to do that if you take it apart and put it together ... or what

02:06:20 kakobrekla: decimation who has what?

02:07:34 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 14500 @ 0.00090834 = 13.1709 BTC [-]

02:07:34 *: asciilifeform wants a stainless steel 'model m', will probably end up making it personally at some point

02:08:21 decimation: replacement firmware for the unicomp keyboard: http://pckeyboard.com/page/category/SpacesaverM

02:08:22 assbot: Unicomp, Inc.: Spacesaver M / Mac OS X

02:08:54 kakobrekla: what is it that you want to achieve?

02:09:17 decimation: so this layer hack is a function of the firmware on the keyboard?

02:10:14 kakobrekla: my setup takes in ps2 signal, but you can hook it up directly to the keyboard matrix

02:11:06 decimation: ah I see, so it's hardware "matrix switch"?

02:11:09 kakobrekla: you can hook it up to something like https://www.pjrc.com/teensy/

02:11:10 assbot: Teensy USB Development Board

02:15:26 kakobrekla: decimation scroll down that github page it should be clear

02:20:48 asciilifeform: 'What bothers me is that you are saying what the agency wants us to believe -- they used to be great, but these days they have trouble reading the newspaper, the Internet is too complicated for them, there is so much traffic and they can't find what they want. It may be true, but it is what they have been 'saying' for years. It's convenient for N.S.A. to have its targets believe it is in trouble.'

02:21:21 asciilifeform: (attributed to... Whitfield Diffie. circa 1999. http://cryptome.org/nsa-hersh.htm)

02:21:49 asciilifeform: (linked piece, otherwise is tedious crud)

02:23:06 decimation: asciilifeform it seems that the meta-nsa doesn't exist in reality

02:24:01 decimation: Hayden emphasized that the personnel problems are far less significant than the technological ones: "The issue is not people but external changes. For the N.S.A., technology is a two-edged sword. If technology in the outside world races away from us -- at breakneck speed -- our mission is more difficult. It can be our enemy."

02:24:46 asciilifeform: decimation: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=27-07-2014#772890

02:24:47 assbot: #bitcoin-assets log

02:25:23 decimation: yeah I think you are probably right

02:25:42 decimation: at any rate it's not clear to me that clowns like Hayden or Alexander would even recognize skills if they saw them

02:26:00 asciilifeform: decimation: no actual need for this

02:26:14 asciilifeform: the real, long-term decisions are made at the level below political appointee

02:26:30 asciilifeform: (that is, by folks who have lifetime careers in the service)

02:27:32 decimation: if such people exist, they are probably pretty sad these days, given the point made a few weeks ago about how they would have to live as paupers

02:28:00 asciilifeform: paupers? you ever meet u.s. civil service folks?

02:28:34 decimation: well, it depends where they are on the pay scale I guess

02:28:41 asciilifeform: they aren't rich, in the customary sense (they must work, and are expected to follow a variety of curious social rituals, including living in very particular places) - but not paupers.

02:30:21 decimation: http://www.opm.gov/policy-data-oversight/pay-leave/salaries-wages/2012/general-schedule/washington-baltimore-northern-virginia-dc-md-va-wv-pa-annual-rates-by-grade-and-step/

02:31:00 decimation: I wonder how many young technical folks joining the civil service are offered more than $60k?

02:31:48 asciilifeform: decimation: nsa, cia, nga - not subject to the traditional 'gs' ranks system

02:31:53 asciilifeform: they have their own

02:32:18 asciilifeform: what it is - i've no idea, but it was supposedly leaked not long ago; if you care, find it

02:32:49 peterl: who sells just one share of s.mg and s.nsa?

02:33:43 decimation: https://www.nsa.gov/psp/applyonline/EMPLOYEE/HRMS/c/HRS_HRAM.HRS_CE.GBL?Page=HRS_CE_JOB_DTL&Action=A&JobOpeningId=1049480&SiteId=1&PostingSeq=1

02:34:28 decimation: " Salary is commensurate with education and experience. Salary range: $52,146 to $116,90"

02:34:45 asciilifeform: no longer seekrit, apparently.

02:34:54 *: asciilifeform actually applied for that same job once

02:35:20 decimation: Come live in Maryland, pay $500k for house with schools, get paid $80k per year - for your country

02:37:51 decimation: this goes back to Mircea's point - USG "wants" things, but it can't really afford them - it's running on the "fumes" of past memories

02:40:38 kakobrekla: peterl: jimmothy

02:40:50 asciilifeform: ;;google senior executive service pay

02:41:18 asciilifeform: there's about 10,000 of them.

02:41:41 peterl: kakobrekla: You think he has enough money to afford that much?

02:42:01 assbot: Facts & Figures

02:42:09 asciilifeform: ^ interestingly, no data post-2010.

02:42:32 kakobrekla: peterl i imagine faucets still paying out

02:42:55 asciilifeform: 'ses' are the people who actually run usg.

02:51:15 mike_c: peterl: it looked like fabian was testing mpex tools.

03:08:30 decimation: ah the model M terminal keyboard to usb hack is cool

03:09:09 decimation: I still don't understand why serial terminals went out of style, seems like the perfect solution to point of sale units, etc

03:09:34 asciilifeform: decimation: because microshit decreed it

03:09:40 asciilifeform: can't run winblows on a serial term.

03:16:35 decimation: that's pretty much the equivalent of breaking windows, replacing them with more expensive (yet worse) windows (heh), and counting the whole project as a net positive GDP

03:20:15 asciilifeform: decimation: these, if i recall, suck

03:20:21 asciilifeform: the keys don't send 'break' codes

03:20:29 asciilifeform: i have a (stock) 122, gathering dust

03:20:44 decimation: so this means the controller must poll?

03:21:11 asciilifeform: 'soarer's' converter is, if i recall, closed-source.

03:21:16 asciilifeform: this could mean - anything...

03:21:24 decimation: ah, yeah that sucks

03:21:43 *: asciilifeform has this keyboard and really wants to turn it into a useful thing

03:22:01 asciilifeform: but that means replacing all the silicon with something. and retrofitting leds.

04:12:25 TheNewDeal: provides some visual excitement

04:12:27 mircea_popescu: kakobrekla you're doing it wrong. kbd should be in front of monitor not behind

04:12:55 mircea_popescu: TheNewDeal http://37.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_ls4wxvTRdu1qlne6uo1_500.jpg have some more then

04:13:26 ben_vulpes: mircea_popescu: what's the deal with lordosis?

04:13:35 mircea_popescu: hm ?

04:13:37 TheNewDeal: currently on the search for a % base graph of bitcoin days destroyed

04:13:47 TheNewDeal: lordosis shows party girl vs mommy status

04:13:55 TheNewDeal: at least, that was the word yesterday

04:14:10 ben_vulpes: well, wife status was the word.

04:14:10 mircea_popescu: lobbes yes, it does.

04:14:56 mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes if you mean the lordosis ~behaviour~ it's this female mammal response to being hawt.

04:15:05 fluffypony: I thought bird was the word

04:15:39 mircea_popescu: nono, the word is bird

04:15:45 mircea_popescu: stop mixing the codebooks fluff.

04:16:43 mircea_popescu: step 1. set down bottle without looking. part 2. set it down on usb stick. step 3. bottle overturns and falls over, exactly cork down. part 4. nothing further happens.

04:16:43 mircea_popescu: go me.

04:18:23 ben_vulpes: mircea_popescu: in that picture you said you could tell who was wifed, as they weren't displaying lordosis

04:19:13 ben_vulpes: is that a function of having borne young or not feeling hawt?

04:19:31 mircea_popescu: dude. lordosis just like that is usually a pathologic curvature of the spine. teh lordosis ~behaviour~ is different.

04:19:38 mircea_popescu: and the idea was only boring women get married anyway.

04:20:02 ben_vulpes: a hm

04:22:26 mircea_popescu: decimation: Hayden emphasized that the personnel problems are far less significant than the technological ones << well, i disagree. now, from a bureaucrat pov, sure, they generally can fill any jobs they want filled, according to their selection process. this however does not mean they are gaining any sort of valuable human capital.

04:22:26 fluffypony: argh

04:22:28 mircea_popescu: on the contrary.

04:23:24 mircea_popescu: decimation: at any rate it's not clear to me that clowns like Hayden or Alexander would even recognize skills if they saw them << precisely. suppose they DO recognise them, like, "this chick looks like she could suck a golfball through a gardenhose." now what ? the last guy that recognised that skill lost his job.

04:23:54 mircea_popescu: it's the easiest skill to recognise, too. so... not much hope. they're hiring people, sure, but people only google/microsoft/apple/amazon would hire if they didn't.

04:24:53 TheNewDeal: MP, whered you get the idea for the brk-a bet?

04:25:02 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform:they aren't rich, in the customary sense - but not paupers. << compare what'd happen to the us bureaucrat pauper vs the russian bureaucrat once someone in a hostile nation put the kaibosh on them. they're paupers.

04:25:52 mircea_popescu: gotta show the world who's boss.

04:26:14 mircea_popescu: more importantly, gotta show the kids what it means to be the boss and what a boss does.

04:27:01 mircea_popescu: otherwise they may end up bamboozled by the nonsense fetishism of pseudo-power the ycombinator swamp is pusing, "in order to interact with power acceptably you must give it away in exchange for the trappings of it". tlp discusses the matter extensively and well.

04:28:10 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform: ;;google senior executive service pay << these folk get options. whole different story, as bubbles happen 3-5 times in a lifetime.

04:30:55 TheNewDeal: just curious. I was trying to make a bet on MMM on a BTC basis in the past, and it kept on getting rejected. The brk-a bet surfaced not too long after

04:31:08 mircea_popescu: the russian scam ?!

04:31:40 mircea_popescu: well, the brk bet had the major advantage of 1k zeroconf. that has ~0% chances of being rejected.

04:33:06 TheNewDeal: no doubt. I think it's a great bet, and a somewhat ballsy one as well

04:33:48 mircea_popescu: it already paid lulz in spades. buffett held his yearly meet, supposedly "couldn't find any short". just the embarassment of that...

04:34:15 TheNewDeal: couldnt find any short?

04:34:21 TheNewDeal: what do you mean?

04:34:44 mircea_popescu: yes. i mean they claimed to want to invite someone who's short their thing, but to not be able to find one.

04:35:23 mircea_popescu: as far as i'm concerned, when the luminaries of the previous generation are careful to avoid playing you, more recognition is not really needed. it'll come, of course, but it's moot.

04:36:46 TheNewDeal: I am curious to see how confident investors are after his death.

04:37:13 TheNewDeal: I don't know how much he actually does for the company, but he is quite the figure head

08:59:29 DreadKnight: if I were to list Ancient Beast to get funding for it

09:00:41 mircea_popescu: problem there would be that your putative investors would have relatively little reason to believe you won't simply walk after the listing.

18:51:27 BigBitz: I mined for about a month...

18:51:33 mircea_popescu: oh

21:16:44 mircea_popescu: that thing was hot back when digg owned reddit.

21:17:32 DreadKnight: :D

21:17:44 DreadKnight: anyway, too many girls become sg nowadays...

21:17:58 DreadKnight: it's a bit diluted

21:19:19 DreadKnight: used to like 9 out of 10 models, now it's more like 1 out of 10

21:20:07 DreadKnight: maybe I'm growing too old for sg D:

21:20:30 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 7100 @ 0.00087573 = 6.2177 BTC [+]

21:20:42 DreadKnight: or all them scanks wanna be models and make money just because

21:23:31 decimation: lol from your 'bitcoin lawyer' link: "Practically, there is no public record of Bitcoin purchases. Bitcoin wallets are similarly anonymous as Bitcoin balances and transactions are identified only by a digital code with no link to person or place."

21:24:34 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 7600 @ 0.00087573 = 6.6555 BTC [+]

21:25:02 mircea_popescu: he is on to blood. any creditor can hide any assets in the chain.

21:26:34 decimation: I wonder how many drug lord clients he has

21:26:51 mircea_popescu: in florida ?

21:26:59 decimation: heh yeah

21:27:31 decimation: 'the street' will have its own uses for bitcoin, once the drug lords figure out how easy it is to move across borders...

21:29:59 DreadKnight: decimation, bitcoin was mentioned like 3 times in a futuristic tv-show called "Almost Human", key words being "black market" and "untraceable"

21:30:34 DreadKnight: (a few months ago)

21:34:02 decimation: yeah, but the drug-lords listen to their drug-lord lawyers, not american tv

21:34:13 decimation: at least the smart ones do

21:34:30 decimation: this particular lawyer has 'discovered' a new market for his clients

21:41:19 mircea_popescu: it's going to lead to a splendid conundrum down the road, because from the pov of bankruptcy/anti-asset protection legal practice, the preferred avenue would be to declar bitcoin wiorthless

21:41:30 mircea_popescu: and then unwind any asset-protective trade as "without consideration"

21:41:37 mircea_popescu: and just steal the buyer's thing to give it to the creditor.

21:41:52 mircea_popescu: however, this is exactly contrary to how the whole rest of the bureaucracy would like to treat it.

21:42:06 mircea_popescu: but that is a pike to drive in the hydra's eye later on, let's not anticipate.

21:42:30 decimation: quite so, bitcoin will enable a whole cottage industry of tax-avoidance

21:42:50 decimation: in the us it's quite important for elderly to have no net worth on paper, so they qualify for free healthcare

21:42:50 mircea_popescu: that's a different story.

21:42:52 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 3959 @ 0.00087589 = 3.4676 BTC [+] {2}

21:43:04 mircea_popescu: what i'm talking about here is, every single college kid getting mailed those ccs ?

21:43:05 decimation: which isn't quite tax avoidance, but it's measurable asset avoidance

21:43:08 mircea_popescu: buying bitcoin and moving to mexico.

21:43:53 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 8091 @ 0.00087784 = 7.1026 BTC [+]

21:45:47 decimation: if your scenario happens (college kids leverage usd debt for bitcoin) that will be the way that the baby boomers lose their lock on elite wealth and power in the us

21:49:16 mircea_popescu: if the kids weren't stupid it'd be happening already.

21:49:24 mircea_popescu: bitcoin is the perfect tool for intergenerational warfare.

21:49:44 mircea_popescu: take the coinfire dood. he thinks he's too old to be arsed to learn gpg ? he thinks he's too mature to submit ?

21:49:52 mircea_popescu: open wide, here comes the rape train.

21:50:06 decimation: re: dynamic equilibrium of bitcoin: I'm pretty convinced that 99% of people born in the west (especially academic specialists) have no idea about 'money', 'currency' 'non-money commodities', whatever words you want to use to label it

21:50:31 mircea_popescu: or about anything else.

21:50:31 decimation: yeah it's pretty much the same way that people think that ssl websites are the best practice in 'secure' data transfer

21:50:42 mircea_popescu: battery chickens have no idea 'bout pine needles. big whoop.

21:51:00 decimation: I also find it amusing that the most important thing that the bureaucrats & academics start derping about are definitions

21:51:16 mircea_popescu: it's the dubious blessing of being raised in a system, that with the safety this entails for as long as the system survives comes intermingled the complete cluelessness and inability to survive.

21:57:18 decimation: hell, no one younger than 50 in the US has tried to buy a house in the context of greater than 10% mortgage rates

22:00:06 decimation: if this whole winklevoss etf thing isn't a scam, bitcoin is probably going to trade 2-10x in dollars by next spring

22:02:06 decimation: it will be highly amusing to watch the anti-bitcoin derps on wallstreet to lose their shirts shorting bitcoin

22:03:09 mircea_popescu: they can't lose their shirts.

22:03:23 mircea_popescu: they got worthless money in infinite supply. as long as they follow the crowd they get to keep the shirts.

22:05:33 mircea_popescu: so recently some new guy was in here with his old idea rehashed and i pointed out to him it'll never work, and it only seems to work for now, because it's not working yet.

22:05:37 mircea_popescu: anyone recall particulars ?

22:08:46 jborkl: money in infinite supply is the us right now

22:09:00 jborkl: pricing is out of control

22:09:51 jborkl: a house for $400,000 6 years ago is easily $600,000

22:10:02 jborkl: maybe more
