02:23:05 *: funkenstein_ lols @ "ice free arctic forecasts"
02:23:27 funkenstein_: i flew over the pole twice last northern-summer and lemme tell you, there's a lot of ice
02:24:12 funkenstein_: it's a lovely view, one of the only places I've been in the air where a glance down doesn't reveal obvious anthropogenic climate change
02:26:56 funkenstein_: as to corporate agency employees "cooking the data whenever and however it suits them", yeah that's a big problem and not at all confined to environmental studies
02:27:44 funkenstein_: "centering", "anchoring", and "massaging the data" are huge in places you might not expect like astronomy and physics, and huge in others you would expect like economics and medicine
02:32:58 funkenstein_: i'm not sure what "de-industrialize" means exactly, but i do support making fun of folks who fly to greenwashing conferences but have never kept a compost :)
02:34:16 funkenstein_: in general if somebody gives a shit about the life forms on the planet doesn't mean they have to be a luddite
02:37:22 funkenstein_: it's possible to own a gun without shooting yourself in the foot
02:38:03 funkenstein_: but hey some people stop at "because I can" so here we are
06:17:52 kakobrekla: eh
06:18:10 kakobrekla: all a real man needs is a ssh connection
06:18:53 punkman: funkenstein_: btw "ice free arctic" is apparently term of art. >> "By “ice-free”, scientists usually mean a sea ice extent of less than one million square kilometres, rather than zero sea ice cover."
06:19:20 punkman: ssh is horrible on shit connection
06:19:29 kakobrekla: i know :)
06:19:42 kakobrekla: been experiencing that lately
06:19:49 kakobrekla: well, not since the last move
06:22:45 kakobrekla: but the man complains about 'speed', which is not a problem with ssh
06:22:55 kakobrekla: more problematic is packet loss resulting in terminated connections
06:23:13 kakobrekla: the rest you can survive
06:23:25 punkman: he tests packet loss too
06:23:26 kakobrekla: even spikes in lag
06:24:02 punkman: and slow connection means you have to wait between keystrokes to see wtf you are writing
06:24:09 kakobrekla: (been on 4G or something for the first 3 weeks of trip)
06:24:22 kakobrekla: nah, you write and wait :)
06:27:03 punkman: speaking of slow packets, packetA from UK, 30 days and counting, packetB from China, 12 days.
06:28:30 kakobrekla: lol
06:28:44 kakobrekla: china will grow larger ~ cnc generals
06:29:11 punkman: "Fast EU logistics, come to Mongolia"
06:34:16 punkman: ;;tall
