00:00:37 mircea_popescu: nono, you said!

00:01:12 mircea_popescu: moiety so what are you up to these days

00:01:44 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 3420 @ 0.00087895 = 3.006 BTC [-]

00:01:53 mircea_popescu: http://edition.cnn.com/2014/05/07/tech/social-media/nsa-coded-tweet/index.html

00:01:53 ozbot: Behind the NSA's mysterious coded tweet - CNN.com

00:02:00 mircea_popescu: kinda derpy pitch

00:03:02 moiety: mircea_popescu, figuring out what to do next with my time really, which is hampered by trying to sort out house things recently. i have a deadline now.

00:03:30 moiety: i thought that re nsa and tweeter, like trying to play like cicada and getting it terribly wrong

00:03:36 mircea_popescu: doesn't sound like so much fun

00:04:04 moiety: not particularly, but it'll all work out :]

00:05:07 moiety: once one thing gets sorted, all the rest will be easier i think

00:07:03 moiety: i work better to deadlines anyways, wee bit of pressure did no one any harm

00:10:53 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [SCRYPT] 83 @ 0.041 = 3.403 BTC [-] {2}

00:13:36 BingoBoingo: Oh, anyone want to guess what my blood pressure was today?

00:14:50 mircea_popescu: 212

00:15:42 BingoBoingo: Lower, I'm not Kenneth Slaughter

00:15:46 mircea_popescu: lol

00:17:34 BingoBoingo: Was a healthy 121/66

00:18:39 mircea_popescu: o hey wd.

00:19:31 BingoBoingo: Thanks, Probably all of this damn tramadol keeping it that low.

00:20:22 BingoBoingo: I'm not sure I like this new doctor though, too young.

00:20:30 moiety: thats really good BB :] everything go alright then?

00:20:56 BingoBoingo: Eh, could have gone better, just more of the same for another week and see from there

00:21:15 *: moiety nods

00:21:25 moiety: hope things keep improving

00:21:41 moiety: i don't take well on tramadol at all

00:22:27 BingoBoingo: Eh, NSAIDs weren't doing anything and this does something. They seem to scarcely prescribe much else anymore.

00:23:14 moiety: this is true. it mimics how the body takes to other things. this doesn't translate well in me. tramadol is one of things people either do really well or really badly on.

00:23:36 moiety: tim, the bike crash guy, he loves it

00:24:03 BingoBoingo: I'd rather just go back to drinking, but these antibiotics...

00:24:23 moiety: theres only one antibiotic you cant drink on, its a myth

00:24:35 moiety: it begins with M and i cant remember what it is

00:24:59 BingoBoingo: There's plenty where it is ill advised.

00:25:50 BingoBoingo: Just because there is one building in town that will kill you for sure if you jump from it doesn't mean jumping from the other ones is an idea worth endorsing.

00:29:26 mircea_popescu: !up NormDePloome

00:29:26 assbot: Voicing NormDePloome for 30 minutes.

00:41:18 moiety: BingoBoingo: what i mean is i think the biggest issue is drowsiness. theres only one that will make a person sick -- that i know of

04:11:56 artifexd: There's my confusion. Bet refers to the thing being placed and the thing upon which it is placed.

04:12:21 artifexd: Well... fuck

04:12:33 kakobrekla: its lispy!

04:13:07 artifexd: Do you have different names for them in your database?

04:13:33 kakobrekla: different from what

04:14:21 artifexd: I imagine that there is a database with a table of bets and a table of, uh, bets. Both tables can't be called bets.

04:14:50 TheNewDeal: bets and betbets

04:14:58 artifexd: lol

11:07:12 mircea_popescu: some online news outlets to label the encounter a confrontation, which 7th Fleet officials disputed Friday.

11:07:12 mircea_popescu: USS Blue Ridge, the Japan-based 7th Fleet?s flagship, transited without incident near the two ships, Navy officials said.

11:07:12 mircea_popescu: All parties acted professionally, said 7th Fleet spokesman Cmdr. William Marks, who is embarked aboard Blue Ridge.

11:07:12 mircea_popescu: ?There wasn?t any communication [with the Chinese] due to both Blue Ridge and its helicopter being a safe distance away,? Marks said.

11:07:33 mircea_popescu: it wasn't a confrontation : we stayed the fuck away from them, so there was no need for them to beat our living daylights out.

12:18:28 mircea_popescu: "If, instead of treating their BTC like play money and throwing it into this kind of junk, folks just took a portion of their available dollars and invested that capital into random selections from the S&P 500, they would likely do much, much better."

12:18:57 fluffypony: mircea_popescu: he's not wrong, assuming he's referring to the "stock" on BitcoinBourse and CryptoStocks

12:18:59 fluffypony: in fact

12:19:05 pankkake: well he's right that most are junk

12:19:12 fluffypony: you could bury the money as cash in the ground and dig it up over 5 years

12:19:17 ozbot: Hayman Global Outlook Pitfalls and Opportunities for 2014 by Kyle Bass - YouTube

12:19:24 mircea_popescu: he got trampled to shit by mpoe-pr for being a fucktard, rather than admit he;'s a fucktard he prefers to claim "it was impossible anyway":

12:19:35 fluffypony: and whatever hasn't decomposed would still be more than investing in BitcoinBourse stocks

12:19:41 Apocalyptic: I like how the first question he's asked is "what do you think about bitcoin", despite it not being mentionned at all

12:19:41 mircea_popescu: sure.

12:19:46 Apocalyptic: he took the Buffet way out

12:20:22 mircea_popescu: Apocalyptic re buffett : i chuckled at the recent sacking of that wsj reporter over calling buffet a hypocrite for no good reason.

12:20:30 fluffypony: anyway I was writing a blog post about the fucktards that are Coinbase before getting distracted by this, I'ma finish it

12:20:35 mircea_popescu: somehow they think the strategy involved is not transparent as glass, i have no idea why.

12:21:03 Apocalyptic: mircea_popescu re Kyle Bass, he is saying in that presentation that Argentina is the best country to invest in for the following years

12:21:22 mircea_popescu: unsurprising.

12:21:38 Naphex: well BB might just get 0dayd with all those PHP scripts they run

12:21:51 pankkake: fluffypony: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=462370.msg6620628#msg6620628 if this guy really works for coinbase… :/

12:22:26 fluffypony: pankkake: his reply is what triggered the blog post I'm writing

12:22:37 fluffypony: or more specifically zumzero's backing

12:22:40 fluffypony: "Hmmmn, tricky. Go with the new poster whose first post started with a personal insult or take the advice and recommendation from an established and respected shareholder? What will Ken do? Tricky."

12:22:51 pankkake: I'm not sure what he even meant by that

12:22:58 pankkake: and who the RESPECTED shareholder is

12:23:17 fluffypony: pankkake: apparently my advice is worthless because I implied Ken hired an incompetent "project manager"

12:23:32 fluffypony: and Jasun7211's advice is golden because he's the *respektud sharezholder*

12:23:48 fluffypony: so he would never look out for himself

12:24:25 pankkake: also, lol at not using BitPay because they are "in bed with BFL"

12:24:54 mircea_popescu: fluffypony yes man, that's how it works. take dr foreskin : he does something stupid. he's publicly told just how stupid he is. he moves on to claiming that THE WORLD IS BROKEN

12:25:07 mircea_popescu: anything. anything whatsoever.

12:25:09 fluffypony: lol

12:25:45 mircea_popescu: anyway, basically fluffypony is sorta moving into a mpoe-pr 2.0 role here ?

12:25:49 mircea_popescu: curious how long that'll last.

12:25:58 fluffypony: I actually don't know how mpoe-pr/hanbot lasted as long as she did without quitting, I wouldn't have lasted more than a month

12:26:06 fluffypony: oh well yes, exactly

12:26:07 mircea_popescu: she's a woman.

12:26:16 mircea_popescu: i know what i do when i discriminate.

12:26:27 pankkake: I lasted in the forums because there wasn't much else I could do of my days

12:26:53 pankkake: insulting people on the internet was the bonus

12:27:05 mircea_popescu: you can only insult the willing.

12:27:18 pankkake: so what's your excuse, fluffypony?

12:27:18 mircea_popescu: i guess the rest you could rape...

12:27:23 pankkake: lol

12:29:44 fluffypony: pankkake: trolling is fun :)

12:29:50 fluffypony: seriously tho

12:30:05 fluffypony: I think there are some guys that want to do things in a way that is successful

12:30:15 fluffypony: and need a bit of testing-with-fire

13:19:28 bounce: but apple always made its own. it's to be seen if they can manage someone else's thing

13:20:33 fluffypony: bounce: yeah, I get the feeling that they're worried about losing ground in that space without Jobs

13:21:21 bounce: they're pretty headless right now. the rest runs pretty well -- cook is (I'm told) very good at the whole supply chain thing

13:21:42 fluffypony: pankkake: who is that? that's the nerd equivalent of someone taking a picture of themselves standing next to a Nissan 350Z (when they're probably 3 mths behind on payments) and putting it on Facebook to impress everyone with his lavish riches

13:22:17 pankkake: fluffypony: it's unknown, but it's a /g/ meme. these last days it's even better than usual obviously

13:22:33 fluffypony: bounce: yeah he seems to be good at managing the company and keeping it profitable and smooth, but he doesn't seem to have the requisite insight and vision

13:22:35 fluffypony: time will tell

13:23:13 pankkake: s/insight and vision/delusionist skills/

13:24:40 *: bounce could do the vision thing, blackberry style. -- that basically was a company with one customer, the boss. making something that blind-sides the hipsters, repeatedly, well, few can do that.

13:26:51 bounce: the thing is, apple is sitting on an ungodly pile of money, without much in the way of ideas

13:27:31 Naphex: get money spend money no money?

13:28:05 pankkake: buy starbucks

13:28:07 fluffypony: pankkake: nah, Jobs had insight and vision into what people (generally) wanted before they even knew they want it

13:28:12 Apocalyptic: Naphex, they have nothing to spend it on

13:28:14 fluffypony: the dude was smart that way

13:28:30 Naphex: meh. jobs just hyped people

13:28:34 Naphex: Look a computer in a phone

13:28:46 Naphex: sorry i meant a severly limited computer which you can use too buy more apple shit

13:28:55 pankkake: how many bought an iThing and don't even use it?

13:29:11 Apocalyptic: dem hipsters

13:29:15 bounce: dunno. any market research into it?

13:29:34 bounce: though probably not exlusively to nor blamable on apple

13:30:20 pankkake: jobs sold the ipad to the press, as the thing that would save them

13:30:49 pankkake: it didn't work at all, but they hyped the ipad before that, hoping it would

13:31:13 bounce: so? plenty large companies do that, and worse. "vaporware"

13:31:23 fluffypony: Naphex: I'm talking more about stuff like the iPad - it wasn't even a particularly novel idea, it was just so well executed that every major exec on the planet seems to have switched 80% of their tasks to their iPad instead of their laptop

13:31:48 Naphex: i never bought an ipad

13:32:22 Naphex: anyway bb, off home

13:32:49 bounce: fairly brilliant marketing move, though I'm not too impressed by the damage

13:33:36 fluffypony: bounce: well think about how something like WhatsApp was valued - it's valuation was based on userbase and potential monetisation right?

13:34:11 fluffypony: something like Beats has both a loyal user base and real revenue streams

13:34:45 pankkake: I wonder why there's no clothing line yet

13:36:04 Apocalyptic: mircea_popescu re vertcoin, I have no idea how big the VTC market is, nor what hashrate the network has

13:40:21 fluffypony: yeah I think so

13:40:34 fluffypony: they are good though

13:40:40 BigBitz: was the Apple buy a cash buy?

13:40:42 fluffypony: bought a pair of buds for the wife a few years ago

13:40:55 fluffypony: and she's abused them, yet they're still going

13:42:00 fluffypony: so I basically got them for "free" with the points

13:42:05 BigBitz: nice.

13:52:03 BigBitz: This, too, is antithetical to Bitcoin, but also flies in the face of all logic. Why layer the fees on to ordinary users that could be sending Bitcoin to their mom or their sick cousin? Why not let the merchants carry the cost, since they can write the fees off as a cost-of-doing-business?

13:52:19 BigBitz: Welcome to VISA/AMEX :) ie; end user does not carry th eburden of Merchant Services Charges

13:52:28 BigBitz: however, some refuse to accecpt AMEX based on their larger tx fee.

14:10:07 fluffypony: oh lordie

14:10:07 mike_c: proceed

14:10:25 mike_c: perhaps a link first?

14:10:34 fluffypony: mike_c: http://blog.spagni.net/posts/2014-05-09/

14:10:41 ThickAsThieves: Well, mostly, you are projecting all your own desires onto a business

14:10:48 Apocalyptic: mike_c, do you even backlog ?

14:11:12 ThickAsThieves: Coinbase has not obligation to be anything to you

14:11:41 fluffypony: ThickAsThieves: the article was triggered by a Bitpay vs. Coinbase discussion on the AMC thread

14:11:46 fluffypony: so it's in that context

14:11:55 mike_c: Apocalyptic: i was like an hour before that in catching up. so close :)

14:11:55 fluffypony: I can preface it with that if it'll help

14:11:56 ThickAsThieves: you should set it up differently then

14:12:12 ThickAsThieves: lile"Why I Like BitPay more than Coinbase"

14:12:25 ThickAsThieves: right now you just sound like a bitter customer who didnt get his way

14:13:59 Apocalyptic: as old as coinbase itself

14:14:05 ThickAsThieves: "Purposely breaking the Bitcoin model is not only irresponsible, but it gives us insight into what Coinbase is trying to achieve."

14:14:10 ThickAsThieves: you make that leap

14:14:44 ThickAsThieves: because they form a bitcoin/fiat money-changing service they are the devil?

14:15:09 mike_c: coinbase is only a scam if you treat it like a daytrading exchange.

14:15:29 mike_c: kinda like if you treat bitbet as a last-second bitcoin faucet.

14:15:31 ThickAsThieves: yeah you dont trade FX at the airport moneychanger now do you?

14:15:59 fluffypony: ThickAsThieves: not in and of itself, no - the problem is that they're building a userbase that is intwined in that ecosystem and will struggle to manage their own wallet

14:16:22 fluffypony: they're making their users treat Bitcoin payments like PayPal payments

14:16:40 ThickAsThieves: users are doing it to themselves

14:17:03 fluffypony: ThickAsThieves: ok well let's contrast the approaches

14:17:15 princessnell: would you expect those most of those users to use Bitcoin in any other way?

14:17:18 fluffypony: a Coinbase user buys something on a site that uses Bitpay

14:17:31 fluffypony: they're presented with a QR code + Bitcoin URI + address

14:17:35 fluffypony: presumably + BIP 70 in the future

14:17:45 fluffypony: they can still do "wun klick" payments and whatever

14:17:49 fluffypony: and have the money sucked out their bank account

14:17:53 fluffypony: and pay their 1%

14:17:55 ThickAsThieves: also, yknow your Coinbase thinks America is Important section mostly serves as data showing how US is important

14:18:00 bounce: patent violasion!

14:18:39 fluffypony: but they're aware of what's happening and where Bitcoin plays a role in the payment process

14:18:52 fluffypony: vs. a Coinbase customer paying on a Coinbase merchant site

14:19:10 fluffypony: where it's all magical unicorns denominated in USD and money coming out their bank account

14:19:44 mike_c: um, who cares?

14:19:47 ThickAsThieves: maybe a better argument, would be how merchant use of bitcoin is the problem

14:20:05 fluffypony: mike_c: I'm speaking to a specific point ThickAsThieves raised

14:20:36 bounce: UnicornCoin, only valid in combination with RainbowCoin

14:20:40 ThickAsThieves: yeah my point wa a customer can make as many sacrfices as they like to protect their own convenieneces

14:20:57 ThickAsThieves: with the convenience be speed, false sense of security, or ignorance as bliss

14:21:03 mike_c: yes, i think i'm following, but who cares if a user <-> coinbase <-> coinbase merchant transaction doesn't scream bitcoin?

14:21:10 ThickAsThieves: whether the convenience*

14:21:59 mike_c: "Since Coinbase has had their merchant tools rolled out since December 5th, 2012 it’s safe to say that they’re not a new startup."

14:22:13 princessnell: yr absolutely right about the cultural problems that the convenience creates

14:22:16 mike_c: uh.. 1.5 years is pretty dang new :)

14:22:54 bounce: https://bitcoinfoundation.org/2014/05/09/board-election-results-announcement-2/

14:23:04 princessnell: but i wonder if many (most?) coinbase users would have it any other way

14:23:07 ThickAsThieves: princessnell, but what's the flipside? a common cure for stupid?

14:23:31 fluffypony: mike_c: well, isn't part of the entire point of Bitcoin that "he who holds the keys holds the coins"? in other words, users should be encouraged to use Bitcoin in that fashion, anything else (webwallets) deviates from that core principle

14:23:52 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [SCRYPT] 10 @ 0.041 = 0.41 BTC [-]

14:23:53 ThickAsThieves: there's no "point" of bitcoin

14:23:55 ThickAsThieves: it's a thing

14:24:01 ThickAsThieves: it has no intention

14:24:13 ThickAsThieves: people can use it how they like

14:24:15 bounce: what, no "take the world by storm"?

14:24:17 mike_c: it's cash in your pocket vs. your bank account. cash in your pocket is a convience and subject to mugging.

14:24:27 princessnell: ThickAsThieves: moonsteads!

14:24:43 princessnell: (how do you tag someone by name on IRC?)

14:24:54 mike_c: you just did

14:25:02 bounce: no cash in pocket means chip&pin which in turn exposes the entire checking account

14:25:19 fluffypony: mike_c: I can't agree with that analogy

14:25:23 princessnell: heh, easy. thanks.

14:25:51 princessnell: i think shaming coinbase et al is appropriate. but i think this is a structural problem with demand.

14:25:52 fluffypony: I don't have a better one, but that's not apt enough

14:25:55 mike_c: fluffypony: why? that is exactly how i use it. i purchase, move coins to storage, and use CB for random day-to-day purchase/bets.

14:26:09 mike_c: and basically fully expect someday my balance on CB won't be there.

14:26:50 ThickAsThieves: CB serves certain purposes

14:26:57 ThickAsThieves: and that's okay

14:27:00 fluffypony: ThickAsThieves: I'm going to pull the article for the moment, I'll revisit it when I have time, but weekend is almost here

14:27:12 princessnell: right. but it does prime people in a problematic way.

14:27:19 mike_c: wha?? why would you pull an article that is generating debate?

14:27:57 ThickAsThieves: princessnell i dont think "priming" people should be a concern of coinbase necessarily

14:28:12 ThickAsThieves: nor am i sure it's even relevent

14:28:14 princessnell: ThickAsThieves no, of course not. they are a profit seeking business.

14:28:18 Apocalyptic: fluffypony, don't pull it just because TAT is being a coinbase shill

14:28:23 ThickAsThieves: haha

14:28:25 fluffypony: lol

14:28:26 fluffypony: no no

14:28:30 princessnell: i think path dependencies are relevant

14:28:30 ThickAsThieves: yeah dont pull it

14:28:31 fluffypony: I want to make my arguments clearer

14:28:42 ThickAsThieves: i just think it was a shot from the hip

14:31:23 ThickAsThieves: really i spoke up, and here, because i care

14:33:33 Naphex: and vetting it through bitcoin sig

14:34:24 fluffypony: dat low-res header pic

14:34:33 ThickAsThieves: whats wrong is it doesnt inject a new point of failure for the NSA to fuck with

14:35:01 ThickAsThieves: "y keeping the chain code hidden behind the server, we get unlinkability. "

14:35:03 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [SCRYPT] 4 @ 0.041 = 0.164 BTC [-]

14:35:20 Naphex: what i proposed and had a working example

14:35:33 ThickAsThieves: "If the chain code ever leaks then all your payments become linkable."

14:35:50 Naphex: is BIp32 hd pub keys, ecdsa signed with root address, then assigned

14:35:55 Naphex: everything in that article is then solved

14:35:56 ThickAsThieves: "First problem: stealth address usage bloats the block chain." fucking hell already

14:36:00 fluffypony: Naphex: so push it as a BIP and get comments on it

14:36:27 Naphex: i am shit at writing docs, better at writing and talking through code

14:36:27 Naphex: :(

14:36:40 fluffypony: Naphex: BIPs don't need much in way of documentation

14:36:46 fluffypony: and once it's up other people will contribute to it

14:36:53 ThickAsThieves: Hearn is on a mission to solve solved problems

14:37:47 Naphex: see where it goes

14:37:57 ThickAsThieves: bitcoin can't rap

14:38:09 thestringpuller: i bet MPOE-PR could rap

14:38:27 fluffypony: I'll rap - I mean, I did say on the AMC thread that I was "dropping the mic"

14:38:30 fluffypony: so restekp.

14:39:06 thestringpuller: Fine ThickAsThieves i'll get some producers myself and make my own bitcoin mix tape :P

14:39:10 ThickAsThieves: i've heard, with my own ears, "bitcoin" rapped in this studio in lyrics, it was embarassing

14:39:33 ThickAsThieves: you cant sound cool rapping bitcoin

14:39:38 ThickAsThieves: instant shill status

14:39:45 fluffypony: ok so what we do is get some samples and rhyming couples recorded

14:39:56 thestringpuller: Got so much crypto wealth, its bad fo niggas health.

14:39:59 fluffypony: and then we hook it up to a "listen to bitcoin" style service

14:40:00 thestringpuller: Boom

14:40:09 thestringpuller: i bet even Kanye could make that sound dope

14:40:36 ThickAsThieves: well mainstream rappers are shills mostly

14:44:20 ThickAsThieves: some Wale stuff is cool

14:44:21 thestringpuller: I think my favorite rapper of all time is Curren$y

14:44:38 thestringpuller: closely followed by Jay-Z

14:44:48 thestringpuller: then Big Daddy Kane

14:44:53 ThickAsThieves: yeah i like Jat Z's second half of his career

14:44:57 ThickAsThieves: Jay*

14:45:17 ThickAsThieves: but i like diff rappers for diff reasons

14:45:27 Naphex: ICE CUBE

14:45:27 ThickAsThieves: like Jay Z's lyrics can be pretty lame

14:45:31 thestringpuller: I honestly think Curren$y would hang out in #bitcoin-assets if he was in bitcoin

14:45:34 ThickAsThieves: but his delivery is on point

14:45:42 Naphex: ICE CUBE

14:45:57 pankkake: xzibit likes merged mining

14:46:00 ThickAsThieves: Kid Cudi sings all his raps, but much replayability

16:08:15 mike_c: well, first off, the last 20% is always where the time is spent

16:08:37 ThickAsThieves: sure, but this was on schedule to be completed 2 yrs ago

16:08:51 mike_c: so you're 1.8 yrs late in firing them?

16:09:10 ThickAsThieves: maybe, it's not me calling the shots

16:09:16 ThickAsThieves: but i can influence

16:09:45 mike_c: two years late on a one year project is bad management.

16:10:22 artifexd: Are the slacking, losing focus, or incompetent?

16:10:43 ThickAsThieves: i think they use foreigners so the tasks arent clearly communicated

16:10:57 ThickAsThieves: nothing new has been added to the plate

16:11:04 ThickAsThieves: it's just half-assing the requirements

16:11:11 ThickAsThieves: then pretending they didnt understand

16:11:24 pankkake: there is a chance the thing is worthless; it might have appeared to work, but there's not much inside

16:11:31 ThickAsThieves: i think another issue is the provider vastly underestimated the work

16:11:34 ThickAsThieves: but agreed to flat fee

16:11:46 ThickAsThieves: so it became low priority or something

16:11:58 artifexd: Sounds like it is time to find new developers and revisit your requirements. The may need some breaking down/clarification.

16:12:28 ThickAsThieves: i dunno i used the software some and it mostly works, it's just cleanup

16:16:29 Naphex: ah well, when i used to pick up dieing projects

16:17:17 Naphex: i went in, identified root problems, identified what the customer, client needs to realease

16:17:34 ThickAsThieves: this is actually the 3rd or 4th team we had on it, the previous one were all worse

16:17:48 ThickAsThieves: every team wants to start over

16:17:54 Naphex: are you using freelancers? or outsourcing companies?

16:18:05 Naphex: if every team wants to start over it might just be too shitty

16:18:13 ThickAsThieves: they purport to be a team, a business

16:18:15 pankkake: they probably want to start over for good reasons

16:18:19 ThickAsThieves: but i think they are just outsourcers now

16:18:45 ThickAsThieves: probably, but at some point someone has to fucking finish something

16:18:53 Naphex: the starting over thing, there is where the problems lie

16:18:55 pankkake: I've only refused one project, and my colleague refused it too, because there wasn't much to be saved, and fixing it would cost more than doing it again

16:19:04 ThickAsThieves: thats why its hard to let go

16:19:08 Naphex: it might just be too shitty of a code+architecture to work productively in

16:19:10 ThickAsThieves: since we already started over several times

16:19:37 Naphex: i've had clients picked up who used very very shitty platforms, which ended up beeing very succesful

16:19:49 Naphex: then all the problems started, while working in their code base was just a waste of time

16:20:02 Naphex: and any new feature they wanted to add might take more then 1 month

16:20:17 Naphex: i wanted to start over, refused when they denied. after 1 year

16:20:32 Naphex: the code, the platform was just too shitty to waste any good programmers time on it

16:20:45 bounce: sometimes you do need to start over. though not as often (and often not when) dev teams want to start over

16:21:13 Naphex: http://starshiners.ro/ -- 30k~ clients, 5-6k deliveries daily

16:21:13 pankkake: bounce: lol, yeah. we wanted to start over on our own code for a project, but it was still manageable, albeit painful

16:22:12 bounce: amazingly, still so many project managers that haven't read _The Mythical Man-Month_

16:22:12 assbot: AMAZING COMPANY!

16:23:04 ThickAsThieves: the idea was to make this software, polish it and add features for 6mos in use for grade school education, then further develop it by making it more robust for other types of training (i have/had clients in areas like haxardous material transportation certs, etc), then once it seems ready, make it a DIY SaaS monthly fee website thing

16:26:03 ThickAsThieves: the idea is for any person or company to be able to use it to build training

16:26:16 pankkake: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moodle ?

16:26:17 ozbot: Moodle - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

16:26:24 ThickAsThieves: pretty much

16:26:33 ThickAsThieves: we actually use Moodle for one portion of students

16:26:54 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [SCRYPT] 10 @ 0.041 = 0.41 BTC [-]

16:26:59 benkay: it's kinda hard to move the custom designd thigner into a multitenant deploy generally, ThickAsThieves

16:27:19 pankkake: perhaps building around Moodle, with people who actually know Moodle, would get better results

16:27:31 benkay: unless it was designed to do that from the get-go, but from the sounds of it it's kind of a mess in the first place.

16:27:37 ThickAsThieves: i dont think moodle licence would allow for the master plan though

16:28:17 pankkake: benkay: depends on how dirty you want it to be :D

16:28:19 benkay: then there is the 'shoehorn existing software into my problemspace' thing going on as well it sounds

16:28:32 benkay: pankkake: url-encode everything and throw away the method.

16:28:41 pankkake: GPLv3 should be ok, it's not AGPL

16:28:46 ThickAsThieves: well it was more organic than that of course

16:28:56 ThickAsThieves: they had a custom thing some freelancer made

16:28:59 ThickAsThieves: and Moodle

16:29:03 ThickAsThieves: so they had two systems

16:29:05 *: bounce spent a few weeks refactoring a fantastically bad code base. was sort-of fun, if you like a lot of mindless drudgery. lots of condensing copy/pasted code, but also coming up with interfaces to safely re-do (in less code) what's already there giving the same result with less spaghetti. and then slowly "factor up".

16:29:19 ThickAsThieves: which made dev of either one awkward

16:29:25 ThickAsThieves: and they wanted one system

16:29:39 bounce: that sort of thing goes best when the code is a particular kind of stupid: lots of repetition, lots of hooks to revamp.

16:29:46 ThickAsThieves: later came the ideas of SaaS

16:31:10 ThickAsThieves: there's more need than you might initially realize for a customizable education software

16:31:36 ThickAsThieves: orgs get really particular about grading systems and features they need

16:31:48 ThickAsThieves: in the SaaS version you

16:31:53 ThickAsThieves: 'd be able to customize such

16:31:57 benkay: sounds like you'd want to preserve your ability to deliver features fast and on budget at all costs.

16:33:42 ThickAsThieves: well we have yet to encounter a team that can assist, finding one is not easy when you have no reliable connections into better breeds of programminig teams

16:33:51 benkay: man this story is so familiar. non technical stakeholder dictates that a particular already-built thinger be used despite knowing nothing about its architecture or code quality or the ability of development teams to work against the existing codebase. thinger is either a mess or takes 6 months for an individual to come up to speed on the nuances/idiocies of, but project already has thinger built in.

16:33:54 ThickAsThieves: nor quite the ability to confidently discern between them

16:34:23 benkay: yeah that's the really rough part of the problem

16:34:30 benkay: not being able to qualify tech teams

16:34:33 benkay: that's brutal, man.

16:35:42 benkay: Magento's a really good example of this. you start a business selling shit online, you're all "hey magento! it's awesome and does everything i need!" then you want to hire someone to do work on your magento install and lolololololol either you hire kids who are learning php on the fly and they do god knows what to your install or you hire actual magento devs at 400+/hr

16:36:05 thestringpuller: "If you want nice things you have to pay for them"

16:36:28 benkay: i worked at a shop once that charged an ungodly amount of money to migrate another large ecom hustler from magento community to magento pro

16:36:30 ThickAsThieves: the idea of an open source cart always scared me anyway

16:36:38 benkay: ebay staff didn't think it was even POSSIBLE. but we did it.

16:36:59 benkay: cost...too much. probably more than writing a cms/ecom platform ourselves woulda.

16:37:55 ThickAsThieves: note that this point is off on a tangent

16:38:05 benkay: yeah sorry

16:38:09 ThickAsThieves: there's no new expense for this current iteration

16:38:16 ThickAsThieves: other than time passing

16:38:35 ThickAsThieves: they make progress, it's just painfully slow

16:39:10 ThickAsThieves: but now Moodle is way out of date and missing features they really want

18:28:40 mircea_popescu: danielpbarron wait, aren't those two clauses unrelated ?

18:28:59 asciilifeform: speaking of derpatronics: there i was, trying to pick up some chair on the cheap, and saw:

18:29:00 fluffypony: s/or/and ?

18:29:45 danielpbarron: mircea_popescu, if the price in BTC is going to change as the price of BTC changes, then wouldn't buying credits be like buying into FIAT (shorting BTC)?

18:30:03 danielpbarron: oops, price of fraudsters credits

18:30:06 mircea_popescu: danielpbarron ah ah.

18:30:19 mircea_popescu: well imo they're much too cheap atm, so ima not change them a while.

18:30:21 danielpbarron: if the price of fraudsters credits in BTC..

18:30:46 asciilifeform: fraudsters credit is probably the life support hose keeping tor alive...

18:30:58 mircea_popescu: lol

18:31:16 danielpbarron: right, they are cheap at the moment if you think of it in terms of the current FIAT price of BTC, but they are expensive if you are really long on BTC

18:31:43 mircea_popescu: that can't be right.

18:32:01 fluffypony: danielpbarron: so take $5, buy Bitcoin in -OTC, buy credits

18:32:02 mircea_popescu: that is right. holy shit.

18:32:15 mircea_popescu: well, let's say i won't change the price until btc reaches 1mn each

18:32:48 danielpbarron: fluffypony, that's not the point; I guess what I mean is: is buying fraudsters credits like an investment denominated in BTC?

18:32:51 fluffypony: when btc reaches 1 mil I'm selling stock in my remaining fraudsters credits

18:32:55 fluffypony: :-P

18:33:04 danielpbarron: ^^

18:33:47 mike_c: it's like selling private keys though, doesn't work. you can't enforce that you won't use the cookie after selling.

18:34:26 danielpbarron: fluffypony, someone could buy way more credits than they need with the plan of selling them in the future

18:34:39 mike_c: except you can't sell them :)

18:34:39 fluffypony: I mean, when BTC is at 1mil a pack of fraudsters creds will be worth $10k. if you're long on BTC you'll have a net worth an order of magnitude higher than that, so it'll be irrelevant.

19:09:46 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: that apple turd was an epic derpamatic, incidentally. ~500k views to date.

19:10:31 mircea_popescu: it's a good article.

19:10:47 mircea_popescu: you gotta learn to ignore the reactions to the major hits and focus on discussing the others.

19:10:56 mircea_popescu: nobody cares what many people think.

19:11:24 asciilifeform: yeah after i noticed what attracts derpmeisters, i moved on to other, more interesting subjects

19:12:23 mircea_popescu: "@SunSentinel ? 1h Man drives Tesla from New York to Miami at no cost" who the fuck came up with this idiocy. the tesla is a luxury product. the people who buy luxury products are being sold on "no cost" housewife routines ?

19:12:35 asciilifeform: (note that the piece correctly describes the fate of apple corp. not that this deserves prize of any kind, it was pretty obvious)

19:13:28 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: 100 m^2 of photovoltaics is also a 'luxury product', but it marketed in just that same way.

19:14:02 hanbot: the grass must be made greener

19:14:13 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform the photovoltaics are not the product.

19:14:14 asciilifeform: russian army style.

19:14:17 asciilifeform: by painting it.

19:14:30 benkay: 80k is a luxury product now?

19:14:45 mircea_popescu: if nipple piercings ensured the women carrying them will be used as fucktoys, giving away free cool nipple piercings would not be giving away any product either

19:15:00 asciilifeform: photovoltaics are not the product << the cocktail of self-righteous envirowhinerism and successful penny pinching (while 'pound-foolish') is the product.

19:15:01 mircea_popescu: benkay you seen the derpage ensuing from 30 btc mpex reg fee ?

19:15:20 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform nah, more like, the more expensive housing is the product.

19:15:29 mircea_popescu: the actual cost to builkd a house now is ~5k.

19:15:35 mircea_popescu: this is why the market is collapsing all the damned time

19:15:42 mircea_popescu: if they could make it so building a house cost 100k,

19:15:47 mircea_popescu: then the economy would be stable.

19:15:47 asciilifeform: less, if you permit exotica like machine-sculpted concrete

19:15:50 mircea_popescu: so, they're trying.

19:16:21 bounce: 5k what? dollars? that's a wooden shed, materials only, or what?

19:16:30 mircea_popescu: so the product is "getting photovoltaics to be common so they may be deemed standard so they may become mandatory so the developers can sell and the finance economy can work etc"

19:16:32 mircea_popescu: that's the product.

19:16:41 mircea_popescu: like the nipple pierced girls' fucking, being the product.

19:16:52 mircea_popescu: bounce all materials, house for a fambly.

19:32:40 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: the americans found a more barbaric and elegant solution to propping up housing costs - foreclose en masse and let the buildings rot, harvested by copper thieves, etc.

19:32:44 asciilifeform: rather than let price fall

19:34:33 mircea_popescu: not really. most prices are just depressing to all hell.

19:34:45 mircea_popescu: just, some here and there going the way of the rot

19:35:24 asciilifeform: there is definitely a palpable 'price floor', that remains solid, at least outside of war zones (e.g. detroit)

19:36:11 asciilifeform: nobody is getting a house, in decent physical condition, near a major employment hub, for 10k. yet.

19:37:44 asciilifeform: for so long as the racket of letting an average salaried schmuck borrow $MAXINT to repay for the rest of his life - the price floor will remain.

19:43:26 asciilifeform: ok, arizona.

19:45:17 nubbins`: cost of goods in alaska, too

19:45:27 nubbins`: have fun buying $50 watermelons

19:46:07 asciilifeform: i suspect that many people in usa would happily eat $50 watermelons in a $1000 house.

19:46:22 nubbins`: not sure about the usa, but if a canadian takes a job "up north", they get a government subsidy called the "northern allowance" to offset the increased price of goods

19:46:25 asciilifeform: but for some reason alaska climate puts them off.

19:46:35 nubbins`: $1000 house? nice try

19:47:01 nubbins`: $250k would get you a shack

19:47:32 asciilifeform: as mp pointed out some time last week, dynamiting the permafrost to lay foundations is costly, etc.

19:48:36 asciilifeform: one other thing about housing in usa - that is rarely spoken of in the open literature - is that the americans switched to housing price as a means of putting the '60-70s race wars on hold

19:48:49 asciilifeform: by auto-segregating

19:49:29 nubbins`: nunavut, canada

19:49:39 benkay: welcome to the us, where you can't even work without the permission of the bureaucracy

19:49:41 nubbins`: home of the $50 watermelon and the $28 head of cabbage

19:50:21 benkay: at least you don't have to take a class to do an internship, nubbins`

19:50:34 nubbins`: rent/mortgage is 30% higher than south of 60, as well

19:50:36 nubbins`: on average

19:50:40 nubbins`: so much for cheap houses :D

19:50:56 nubbins`: benkay: internships are for suckers :D

19:51:25 asciilifeform: the reason why no experiment whatsoever with cheap housing en-masse is possible in usa, is that any locale with such becomes 'infested' overnight

19:52:30 asciilifeform: to understand how this works, visit any u.s. location where the folks subsisting on gov. 'welfare' and petty crime can afford to live.

19:53:58 nubbins`: uni courses are generally assigned a number of credits

19:54:06 nubbins`: when i went, three credits per course was the norm

19:54:18 nubbins`: some courses with less hours (say, labs) would be 2 credits

19:54:29 nubbins`: and you need X credits to get Y degree

19:54:52 Namworld: Hey, Compliments brand

19:54:54 asciilifeform: nubbins`: three credits per course was the norm << same. but with some comical undershoot. e.g. 'operating systems' took about 40h/week of actual work for most of the kids, but earned... 4 credit.

19:55:01 nubbins`: :(

19:55:04 nubbins`: TANJ

19:55:17 nubbins`: Namworld, you have Sobeys? :D

19:55:43 asciilifeform: given that most u.s. uni courses are priced per credit, few complain.

19:56:40 Namworld: No, we have Metro

19:57:21 nubbins`: interesting, never heard of it

19:58:09 Namworld: Wait, wrong one... Compliments is from IGA

19:58:11 mircea_popescu: you wanted a degree, you had to pass all of a dozen or so courses.

20:01:29 Namworld: Oh, Sobeys bought the group that held the IGA franchise in 1998. Explain why they use same brand now.

22:29:31 joecool: davout: distributed

22:29:36 joecool: it's a bitch and a half

22:29:59 joecool: need to have a key for the team to work that way, or encrypt each message with each member's key

22:30:13 davout: joecool: that's dead easy with GPG

22:30:38 joecool: davout: which way and how?

22:30:40 pankkake: the only issue is when people leave or join, otherwise yes it's easy

22:30:41 davout: CLI -> cat message.txt | gpg -a -e -r member1 ... -r memberN -s -u my_key

22:30:48 punkman: shared key kinda works

22:30:57 davout: punkman: shared key is retarded

22:30:58 joecool: shared key is bad for security

22:30:59 pankkake: I use multiple destination a lot, actually

22:31:08 fluffypony: ;;later tell BingoBoingo http://i.imgur.com/I0JQld6.jpg

22:31:08 gribble: The operation succeeded.

22:31:57 benkay: so then you get an email with n giant gpg blobs?

22:31:59 davout: pankkake: yeah, that's dead easy, also multiple recipients is kinda mandatory if you want to be able to decrypt what you encrypt to someone else

22:32:07 BingoBoingo: fluffypony: http://deadspin.com/leaked-internal-scouting-report-the-patriots-do-not-li-1574040417

22:32:08 davout: benkay: no, because GPG uses a proxy key

22:32:19 pankkake: yes, I usually want to know WTF I wrote

22:32:45 davout: it encrypts the message symetrically IIRC, and only repeats the symmetric key for each recipient

22:35:43 joecool: but i also have key expiry set, i can't change my key expiry unless i load up gnupg with my offline copy and change it there

22:35:48 davout: fluffypony: nice cameltoe + spelling mistake, should read bitchcoin

22:35:50 joecool: if i try with smartcard it just errors

22:35:56 fluffypony: lol

22:36:13 pankkake: fluffypony: that's better than the golden crackwhore

22:36:40 mircea_popescu: davout> it encrypts the message symetrically IIRC, and only repeats the symmetric key for each recipient << this is correct

22:36:53 mircea_popescu: the only part is the original block cypher encryption at the front that swells

22:37:12 pankkake: fun command of the day: gpg --list-packets

22:38:19 joecool: gah, hate pinentry

22:38:36 davout: joecool: wai, pinentry is cool

22:38:54 joecool: davout: it sucks ass, there's two ways for me to use it

22:39:14 joecool: 1. with ncurses, which it fucks up horribly

22:39:17 davout: pankkake: moar GPG pro-tip, make gpg-agent forget all passphrases : killall -HUP gpg-agent

22:39:39 joecool: 2. with X, which means won't work over screen or in console

22:39:54 joecool: but going back to problem one, it'll just corrupt the term anyway or not show up proper

22:40:31 davout: joecool: wat? when i use it on servers it works fine, and with OSX everything also goes better than expectation, did you try a Ctrl+L to unfuck the term (untested)

22:40:38 joecool: this is a gnupg 2.xx issue, gnupg 1.xx didn't have the problem because it didn't use pinentry

22:40:45 pankkake: yeah, it's annoying, I'm using 2. because of thunderbird, but then I can't use it over ssh without changing the pinentry

22:40:56 davout: joecool: i use 1 with pinentry

22:41:04 Apocalyptic: ncurses is not that bad

22:41:23 davout: joecool: have you tried to use === instead ?

22:41:26 davout: XD

22:41:50 davout: or in french : "ton câble est bien branché? t'as essayé de siffler comme un con?"

22:50:19 ozbot: Fein Coin | Indiegogo

22:50:35 davout: what has the internet done

22:50:56 mircea_popescu: is it a good thing ?

22:51:10 davout: "You can give Fein Coins for events such as raking a yard or selling a pencil or more."

22:51:38 davout: i need to delete the internet icon from my computer

22:57:04 Namworld: "My name is Ben Fein. I founded Fein Coin with the picture of letting people pay for them the buy gift cards using a mobile app. I came across a idea to make the idea of electronic currency. Enjoy. :)"

22:57:17 Namworld: >>I came across a idea to make the idea of electronic currency.<<

22:58:24 davout: he had me at "Fein Coin is a e-currency that in the beginning 1 Fein Coin=$20"

23:00:12 Namworld: That has got to be trolling...

23:00:21 assbot: AMAZING COMPANY!

23:01:05 mircea_popescu: could he be more retarded ?

23:01:07 Namworld: Wait it's a video... so it's actually a kid...

23:01:22 benkay: couldn't say. is the kid really driving the thing?

23:02:52 Namworld: Maybe he vaguely understands Bitcoin and thinks he's mocking it by being "Look, I'm a kid, I can create money out of thin air too and scam you. See how stupid it is?"

23:03:16 Namworld: or someone else paid a kid to do a short video, for the same reason mentioned above.

23:04:57 mircea_popescu: that makes a low amt of sense number

23:10:00 jurov: mircea_popescu: coinbr referral code is fully optional, and i scoop the fees by default, so i don't need one myself :D

23:10:54 jurov: it's up to the users to lurk here or publish reflinks if they want referrals

23:11:37 Namworld: Well I'm out for the weekend.

23:12:59 jurov: bye Nam

23:17:12 mod6: <+davout> pankkake: moar GPG pro-tip, make gpg-agent forget all passphrases : killall -HUP gpg-agent << actually, you can avoid having to kill gpg-agent by not starting it up at all. just comment out `use-agent` in gpg.conf

23:17:26 mod6: iirc

23:17:36 pankkake: killall -HUP isn't a real kill, just a signal

23:18:02 mod6: yep: halt-user-process

23:18:02 pankkake: and well, GPG agent is damn useful when you batch sign a lot of things

23:18:20 pankkake: it's often used to tell daemons to reload their config

23:30:35 mod6: duuuur

23:31:20 jurov: "director of engineering" ..maybe it was the official title for ultimate phone hotline sink for unruly customers?

23:36:14 benkay: derprectum of engineering

23:38:45 artifexd: jurov: Can you answer a question about deposits into coinbr?

23:39:55 davout: pankkake: "killall -HUP isn't a real kill, just a signal" <<< the HUP signal, so?

23:40:23 davout: mod6: nah, it's actually HANGUP

23:41:02 bounce: "SIGHUP [...] terminal line hangup"

23:41:11 davout: mod6: also i like my gpg-agent running, otherwise i woukdn't, you know, run it :D

23:43:00 davout: killall -HUP davout

23:45:47 mod6: <.<

23:47:57 jurov: artifexd yes?

23:49:06 artifexd: The amount I deposited doesn't match the amount I was credited. I originally thought the missing amount was the monthly fee because it was on 1 May.

23:49:47 artifexd: But the management fee came out 3 days later.

23:50:06 artifexd: So, is there a policy about rounding deposits?

23:50:30 benkay: jurov: scamm0r!

23:50:58 jurov: no that must have been a mistake

23:51:08 jurov: which tx was it?

23:51:55 artifexd: The order # in coinbr is 3985

23:52:28 artifexd: The bitcoin tx id is 955cb8cf9b4e936a9d79b49331aa29c8fb135d639649438211c3de5fcd88145b

23:53:06 artifexd: It isn't enough for me to be upset about. But I was curious.

23:54:07 jurov: thanks for report, looking...
