00:07:29 trinque: decimation: schizophrenic goes it alone, creates a system far lispier than this gentoo mess I live in

00:07:31 trinque: something sad about that

00:08:19 decimation: well, the idea of executing everything in 'ring 0' is appealing to me

00:09:03 trinque: Every piece of code in TempleOS (except the initial kernel/compiler) is JIT compiled on demand. Yes that’s right – you can run a program without compiling it, simply by using an #include statement from the command line. << I believe this is one of asciilifeform's desirable system features

00:09:05 decimation: the concept of partitioning security zones on a 'c machine' is an excercise in sophistry

00:10:31 trinque: "TempleOS is a motorbike. If you lean over too far, you’ll fall off. Don’t do that." << this guy's awesome.

00:14:57 decimation: "While much of Silicon Valley grew enamored of the digital currency Bitcoin as a libertarian alternative to central banks, Payne began consulting with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, a new federal agency created at the urging of liberal lion Elizabeth Warren."

01:22:20 trinque: fucking communist that took his stumbling into wealth as a sign that being a communist is right (what.. the fuck?), that businesses which something something social good are going to succeed, that the financial considerations are not essential to business but evil!

01:23:46 trinque: at least if he had the spine to be a proper communist I'd have a shred more respect

01:24:18 mats: lies

01:24:40 mats: this place breeds contempt

01:25:23 trinque: mats: actually I produce my own home-grown, free range contempt

01:25:50 mircea_popescu: lol

01:25:59 mats: carry on

01:26:51 mircea_popescu: well trinque... it worked when random ho was telling all the lazy schoolage hos about how the path to oprah richdom is not in school.

01:26:56 mircea_popescu: why should the same not work on bois ?

01:27:03 mircea_popescu: gangsta rap fo' da whitey!

01:29:47 trinque: bleh... BLEH!

01:30:14 *: trinque was raised by stern white men who said "do useful work, improve yourself, don't be a fucking fool"

01:30:31 trinque: seems that all evaporated in the US

01:33:05 ben_vulpes: whadday'all use for desktop environments, if any? i've inserted ubuntu into this mac and now need to make it usable

01:33:20 trinque: ben_vulpes: for who? yourself?

01:33:27 ben_vulpes: myeah

01:33:33 ben_vulpes: should i skip the desktop environment?

01:33:33 BingoBoingo: ben_vulpes: XFCE is prolly the best stating out option

01:33:35 trinque: could always copy your stump over

01:33:53 BingoBoingo: Or just use a bare windows manager

01:33:54 trinque: yeah xfce's lightweight, the various *box (openbox, fluxbox) ones are also very lightweight

01:34:01 ben_vulpes: myeah i plan to run stump

01:34:12 ben_vulpes: is teh desktop environment even strictly speaking necessary?

01:34:26 BingoBoingo: not really

01:34:44 trinque: my setup is xdm and stumpwm

01:35:10 trinque: BingoBoingo: xdm will read a file called .xsession in your home dir to launch whatever you want

01:35:24 trinque: rather execute, not read

01:35:41 trinque: bash script in there with: exec /your/wm/binary

01:36:03 BingoBoingo: trinque: Yeah, that's pretty much the standard for setting up anything.

01:41:33 BingoBoingo: !up tsoulus

01:41:36 BingoBoingo: !up Pierre_Rochard

01:41:45 BingoBoingo: Pierre_Rochard: How goes the shoulder

01:42:38 Pierre_Rochard: it’s out of the sling, starting physical therapy tomorrow

01:42:56 Pierre_Rochard: btw giving my two weeks notice to bitpay tomorrow

01:43:03 Pierre_Rochard: I’m going back to wall street

01:43:04 ben_vulpes: scoop!

01:43:08 ben_vulpes: wow rly

01:43:10 Pierre_Rochard: haha

01:43:28 ben_vulpes: what'd you do in WS?

01:43:32 ben_vulpes: s/in/on

01:43:48 Pierre_Rochard: accountant for new securitization issuances

01:44:24 Pierre_Rochard: this will be a different role though, I’ll be working with institutional investors to move their accounting from spreadsheets and PDFs to SQL databases

01:45:17 scoopbot_revived: Eurlorean Crafting - The Pickaxe Illumination http://fraudsters.com/2015/eurlorean-crafting-the-pickaxe-illumination/

01:46:22 trinque: Pierre_Rochard: sounds like a vast improvement :p

01:46:55 *: trinque shudders to think of some of the worst abuses of excel spreadsheets he's seen

01:47:13 Pierre_Rochard: trinque: agreed, great role to hone my python skills in

01:51:33 ben_vulpes: Pierre_Rochard: get intimate with the sql

01:51:49 ben_vulpes: trinque likes to bang on about how it was designed as an end-user-programming environment for accountants

01:51:55 trinque: word

01:53:10 trinque: all the questions any account will ever want to ask are able to be expressed as SQL

01:53:31 trinque: worth considering how close you may be able to get the accountant to writing the queries themselves

01:54:09 *: trinque put a great deal of effort into that problem, only to conclude that one should learn to write the damn query directly

01:54:12 Pierre_Rochard: agreed, though I do lean on sqlalchemy a lot, I can write raw sql

01:54:28 Pierre_Rochard: I’d like to just go straight to pl/pgsql at some point

01:55:00 trinque: staying too cozy in python, you'll probably end up reinventing things the db can do better

01:55:19 trinque: consider for example the difference between using a python ORM and raw SQL for an aggregate over some column

01:55:55 trinque: most ORMs would load the whole damn row into an "object" whatever that is, load all the objects into a list, then iterate over that duplicated set of data and barf out the aggregate

01:56:39 danielpbarron: http://www.trashbagbondage.com/ >> Welcome to Trash Bag Bondage >> We now accept bitcoin

01:57:28 mircea_popescu: <Pierre_Rochard> this will be a different role though, I?ll be working with institutional investors to move their accounting from spreadsheets and PDFs to SQL databases <<< the virgin goddess weeps.

01:58:11 asciilifeform: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=08-06-2015#1157366 << highest performance card where the open driver actually worked (of those still produced)

01:58:11 assbot: Logged on 08-06-2015 23:57:30; decimation: asciilifeform: the intel cards were hardly high performance

01:59:01 Pierre_Rochard: trinque: I made that mistake with the first version of pacioli with datetime logic, I’ve pushed all of that logic onto postgres now

02:00:32 trinque: Pierre_Rochard: that said I am under the suspicion that this kind of programming can also be done with CLOS in common lisp

02:00:46 trinque: though I'm not sure yet what that looks like

02:00:52 trinque: asciilifeform: ?

02:00:54 mats: http://www.themoscowtimes.com/article/523245.html

02:00:54 assbot: ... ( http://bit.ly/1AYL0s8 )

02:01:11 mats: >Russian Dies After Eating [Parts of] Tablet Computer to Avoid Police Detention

02:01:25 trinque: not that kind of tablet

02:01:34 trinque: lol

02:01:38 mircea_popescu: they didn't beat him or nottin

02:02:29 asciilifeform: http://www.themoscowtimes.com/news/article/girl-electrocuted-by-tablet-in-bathtub/504561.html << related !

02:02:29 assbot: Girl Electrocuted by Tablet in Bathtub | News | The Moscow Times ... ( http://bit.ly/1AYLa2H )

02:02:52 *: asciilifeform misread initially as 'girl electrocuted by toilet in bathtub'

02:02:58 trinque: I guess franz, inc has some sort of database over CLOS objects

02:03:19 asciilifeform: trinque: or the open src 'elephant'

02:03:26 asciilifeform: which turns any clos class into a working db

02:03:30 trinque: asciilifeform: very cool

02:03:32 trinque: ty

02:03:40 asciilifeform: it is very finicky but once it works - it works.

02:04:36 trinque: every program I've ever been paid to write was just a glorified db editor

02:04:47 trinque: still looking for the perfect set of tools for that

02:04:50 asciilifeform: trinque: consider new job ?

02:04:57 trinque: pays just fine, why would I/

02:05:17 asciilifeform: at least change gas mask filter frequently.

02:05:18 trinque: I'm under the delusion that I can make suffciently general tools the jobs don't take that long

02:05:20 trinque: lol

02:06:07 ben_vulpes: i'm going to beg a copy of trinque's tools and go murder parts of the economy he's not

02:06:27 trinque: right, that's the fun part

02:07:00 ben_vulpes: i'll work on dirty bits too

02:07:16 *: asciilifeform spent virtually whole day moving logic analyzer probes around.

02:07:37 ben_vulpes: at least you weren't programming?

02:07:48 mircea_popescu: LA still takes programmingm

02:07:51 asciilifeform: no, but i'm waiting for mircea_popescu to wake up and tell me how to do that from across an ocean

02:07:58 asciilifeform: l0l there he is.

02:08:13 mircea_popescu: >D

02:08:55 mircea_popescu: im too busy fucking digging up boulders for crying out loud

02:09:10 asciilifeform: l0lders

02:09:53 mircea_popescu: this is all i ever dreamed of - a mmorpg where i know the owner so all the stupid shit can be shot in the head

02:10:37 asciilifeform: little did mircea_popescu know that it is not enough to shoot stupid shit in the head, it has to be scattered with trotyl and buries in five separate graves, or will re-assemble

02:10:59 mircea_popescu: i don't mind.

02:11:23 *: mircea_popescu is kinda curious whether anyone ever manages to reverse the magic i put into this thing

02:11:52 asciilifeform: reverse in the sense of building it again somewhere else ?

02:12:19 mircea_popescu: reverse in the sense of descvribing the black box.

02:12:21 asciilifeform: or in the sense of godelizing it to go to some unintended place

02:12:22 asciilifeform: ah

02:12:49 mircea_popescu: it is after all the one problem of the clockwork puzzle. how to make one ?

02:13:36 danielpbarron: https://pbs.twimg.com/media/BUADXETCIAEokzE.png << fox news explains github

02:13:38 assbot: ... ( http://bit.ly/1AYMank )

02:13:52 mircea_popescu: is it a collection of tubes ?

02:14:41 mircea_popescu: "e-note" ?

02:14:45 mircea_popescu: wtf is wrong with these people.

02:15:34 mircea_popescu: in other news, there's 3x as many people reading fraudsters off a sony playstation than nintendo wii

02:15:37 danielpbarron: the news lady in the background looks baffled

02:15:39 mircea_popescu: i had nfi you could do that.

02:16:07 trinque: wii's got opera on it, dunno bout ps

02:16:38 mircea_popescu: so how do you type ?

02:16:53 danielpbarron: on screen keyboard plus joystick

02:17:00 mircea_popescu: oh

02:17:12 trinque: on the wii you use a mickey mouse finger and your self respect

02:17:41 trinque: I guess the ps browser might be opera too

02:18:20 mircea_popescu: Mr Warren Buffett Mon, 4:48 am 4.5 KiB $5 MILLION USD DONATION FROM MR WARREN BUFFETT

02:19:47 mircea_popescu: "I like to re-assure you of the legitimacy of this services as we will not be involved in any fraudulent act and will never be. use the money wisely, we only want to feel good by helping people this time of the year, this is the only thing that makes my wife happy too even now that she is not here with me anymore, we have too much to give away as I only have few months left on earth."

02:20:03 mircea_popescu: apparently one doesn't need to master english to catch the run-on sentences disease.

02:22:52 trinque: well shit I can't argue with pleasing his dead wife

02:22:56 trinque: where do I wire the funds?

02:23:25 mircea_popescu: send em to bill gates.

02:24:06 mircea_popescu: fun fact : search for barren muffett -> Quiz?s quisiste decir: warren buffett

02:25:31 mircea_popescu: oh and also : susan (who died like a decade ago) was into "population control"

02:28:03 trinque: I'm sure for humanitarian reasons.

02:28:47 mircea_popescu: speaking of trios, she actually left the guy to be a cabaret dancer in the 70s,

02:28:54 mircea_popescu: then provided a replacement (astrid)

02:28:59 mircea_popescu: the three sorta lived together

02:29:34 mats: did he inspire you to do the same

02:30:24 mircea_popescu: mno

02:30:34 mats: :P

02:30:45 *: mircea_popescu only heard of buffett relatively recently.

02:40:13 decimation: asciilifeform: who killed matrox?

02:41:27 decimation: although all the matrox boards I have used recently were shit

02:46:04 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 7740 @ 0.00034833 = 2.6961 BTC [+]

02:49:54 decimation: I bet the girl in the bathtub would have wished that her charger came with a $0.01 fuse

02:53:42 trinque: wait wait

02:53:51 trinque: how in the fuck is github worth anything let alone 750mil

02:54:43 trinque: well hell, the currency's not worth anything anymore, maybe they are

02:54:53 asciilifeform: decimation: matrox killed itself

02:55:04 asciilifeform: decimation: by turning full-bore winblows-only

02:55:17 asciilifeform: it was once the gold standard of graphics-for-linux

02:55:23 decimation: yeah I remember

02:55:28 *: asciilifeform owned a succession of matrox boards, until this.

02:55:37 decimation: amusingly even modern x86 servers still come with matrox cards

02:55:40 decimation: but they are shit

02:55:54 *: asciilifeform has not encountered or so much as smelled a matrox board for many years

02:56:08 decimation: asciilifeform: they come on both dell & hp rack servers

02:56:15 decimation: as 'standard console'

02:57:02 *: asciilifeform never seen anything but intel graphics in those

02:57:30 asciilifeform: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=09-06-2015#1157534 << fuse does exactly nothing in such a case. you were thinking of a 'ground-fault-interrupter'

02:57:51 asciilifeform: (gadget standard in newer bathrooms which senses whether current-in == current-out, and kills circuit if not)

02:57:53 decimation: well, depends on the exact nature of the shock

02:58:08 decimation: was it 5v? or 240v mains?

02:58:08 asciilifeform: btw even these do not always help in the case of 'toaster in bathtub'

02:58:16 asciilifeform: almost certainly mains

02:58:21 asciilifeform: 5v doesn't do much in water

02:58:32 decimation: most shit chinese transformers I've come across are direct shorts to neutral

02:58:46 decimation: 5v ground short to neutral

02:59:12 trinque: "Development work on Elephant been limited since 2009 and support not complete for the latest versions of SBCL and ClozureCL. It hasn't been tested at all with recent Allegro and Lispworks releases." << must be near the end of the most recent lisp cycle

02:59:13 decimation: but yes, a gfi would have helped too. are they not standard in ru?

03:02:40 asciilifeform: decimation: take a guess.

03:03:05 asciilifeform: (they are 'standard' in usa too, but i only touched one with own hands when moved into current house)

03:03:20 decimation: heh yeah

03:03:34 decimation: building codes are a dumbass idea

03:04:16 asciilifeform: americans often piss their pants (or nearly) when travelling abroad to 'orc' world, when they discover what -no- building code looks like

03:04:21 decimation: not because building to standards is dumb, but because it inevitably turns into a racket

03:04:27 asciilifeform: e.g., light switches at whatever height builder felt like placing them

03:04:36 decimation: heh yeah 'concrete box' is sop

03:04:50 asciilifeform: (i have heard of literal pant-pissing when subject could not find light switch in toilet)

03:05:31 decimation: asciilifeform: what I don't get about the 'orc' world is: why not learn to fix shit like that yourself?

03:05:39 decimation: orcs can access wikipedia too

03:05:46 asciilifeform: decimation: on a typical day, do you feel like moving a light switch ?

03:05:51 asciilifeform: one that works perfectly

03:05:56 decimation: heh good point

03:05:58 asciilifeform: or are there 1,001 other things to do.

03:07:42 asciilifeform: decimation: not like 'humans' will fix their broken-by-design surroundings. visit a few folks in usa and see how many drilled out the idiot 'water saver' thing from their shower head.

03:07:45 asciilifeform: my guess: none

03:08:00 asciilifeform: ditto the toilet

03:08:24 asciilifeform: (more complicated problem, but most can be transformed into something like a pre-1992 model)

03:08:31 trinque: I tend to be amazed by guys my age that don't own *any* tools

03:08:43 asciilifeform: trinque: wai wat

03:09:14 trinque: at the amazement or the lack of tools

03:09:46 decimation: asciilifeform: yeah the 'low flow' toilets are bullshit

03:09:47 asciilifeform: for non-u.s. folks: picture a toilet that won't flush -anything solid- in less than 3-4 shots

03:09:50 asciilifeform: (if lucky)

03:10:16 decimation: but isn't the flow limited by ceramic plumbing?

03:10:28 asciilifeform: decimation: in the worst cases, yes

03:10:36 asciilifeform: but more typically, it is 'set in software'

03:10:42 asciilifeform: that is, by the position of the siphon

03:10:47 decimation: yeah, makes sense

03:11:01 trinque: yeah mine's got that adjuster on the arm you can diddle a bit

03:14:27 decimation: heh so warren has a harem?

03:14:39 mircea_popescu: but the idea that random derps are getting 5mn from wb because susan'd have wanted it...

03:14:43 mircea_popescu: mkay.

03:14:55 mircea_popescu: decimation the 70s were 45 years ago.

03:18:51 asciilifeform: ;;later tell mircea_popescu would you happen to know the name (part #?) of the yugoslavian clone of the cdp1802 ? or (if existed) ro version ?

03:18:51 gribble: The operation succeeded.

03:19:38 decimation: asciilifeform: your history of x86 link was interesting

03:21:02 asciilifeform: decimation: gotta love how the -single worst- cpu of the '80s is still with us.

03:21:14 asciilifeform: (one of the best, z80, is -also- still with us. in current production, by the millions.)

03:21:20 decimation: heh yeah

03:21:40 asciilifeform: you can even get pin-compatible with the classical dip-40 package.

03:21:46 asciilifeform: ~5 usd.

03:22:57 decimation: asciilifeform: how much does that space qualified ancient cpu cost?

03:23:07 asciilifeform: decimation: depends where

03:23:17 asciilifeform: decimation: old-new stock on 'ebay' - 2-3 usd.

03:23:27 asciilifeform: brand-new from 'intersil' - somewhere south of 200

03:26:20 decimation: heh the cy enfield keyboard

03:26:52 decimation: apparently the 'new cool kids' couldn't be bothered to write decent software or use rad hard cpu

03:27:23 asciilifeform: decimation: endfield didn't pick it because rad-hard, but because was cheap and had very interesting (read: efficient) instruction set

03:27:44 decimation: yeah I'm sure he didn't use space qualified

03:27:51 asciilifeform: it beat the shit out of its contemporaries (z80, 6502) for instruction-compactness

03:28:02 asciilifeform: the basic model was actually 'spacey'

03:28:20 asciilifeform: (later it sold as si-on-sapphire for added 'spaciness')

03:28:54 decimation: if I were launching a satellite I would sure as hell rather have time-proven parts

03:29:47 asciilifeform: for many years i have searched for a period example of 'voting circuit'

03:29:54 asciilifeform: which 1802 etc. was surely used in

03:30:00 asciilifeform: but never found this

03:35:57 asciilifeform: (arm is de-facto microshit to intel as present-day ibm)

03:36:59 asciilifeform: it is interesting to contemplate how many of the traditional nato stereotypes of soviet industry were not only false, but apply to nato wholly and not at all to sov

03:37:23 asciilifeform: e.g., ussr had, in fact, a great many independent (in the administrative -and- engineering sense) manufacturers of various things

03:37:45 asciilifeform: nominally under the boot of 'gosplan' but factually own animals

03:38:01 asciilifeform: whereas there is not, nor can there be, an independent maker of, e.g., cpu, in the nato blok

03:38:46 decimation: asciilifeform: actually what's amusing is that usg has many similar competing departments

03:38:50 asciilifeform: e.g., i have found at least five entirely separate sov. clones of z80

03:39:08 asciilifeform: designed by different people, produced in entirely different places, with different processes

03:39:08 decimation: none of them make stuff themselves though

03:39:43 asciilifeform: some were not even clones in the traditional sense, but legit reimplementations

03:40:24 asciilifeform: iirc the sov. single-chip pdp11 (famous in 'bk-0010' microcomputer) appeared before there was such a thing in the west

03:40:57 decimation: the msp430 is kinda like the pdp11

03:40:58 asciilifeform: my elder brother, like millions of kids, learned on it

13:24:59 mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo no it was morel ike http://33.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_mb7fz1QLnr1rtxn3oo1_400.gif

13:25:02 assbot: ... ( http://bit.ly/1JBSGmX )

13:25:04 asciilifeform: BingoBoingo i think would like this chip

13:25:14 asciilifeform: phun phakt: you can still buy a toy computer with it: http://www.retrotechnology.com/memship/memship.html

13:25:16 assbot: ... ( http://bit.ly/1JBSHap )

13:25:22 asciilifeform: yes, with togglers.

13:25:32 assbot: ... ( http://bit.ly/1JBSKTw )

13:26:04 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform but seriously, "efficiency" aside, i have nfi how one'd program for a processor that allows random switching in and out of the process counter / memory counter etc.

13:26:08 mircea_popescu: imagine a 1802 valgrind

13:26:17 asciilifeform: you do it... with your hands

13:26:34 mircea_popescu: yeah, shiva must be this tall to pass.

13:26:42 asciilifeform: afaik there was never a compiler for it (you could trivially port sdcc etc. but... why)

13:26:53 asciilifeform: shivas only, yes.

13:26:57 mircea_popescu: mel1802

13:26:57 BingoBoingo: I am interested nao. How long until we get a foundry so we can make them fast?

13:27:19 mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo the reason they're 100 bucks a pop is ~ that nobody wants em

13:27:23 asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: buy a bag of 5,000 FETs. that there's yer phoundry.

13:27:47 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: actually there are plenty of folks who want. but they go to 'ebay' or 1,001 other places where they're a buck or so

13:27:57 mircea_popescu: aha.

13:28:27 asciilifeform: sorta like 'pogo'

13:28:39 asciilifeform: in that if you were to wish for a crate of 10,000 in one pop, there would be supply problems.

13:28:42 mircea_popescu: but with less baseline demand

13:30:04 BingoBoingo: Can a bag of FETs make one that's run bitcoind fast?

13:30:14 asciilifeform: thing lasts virtually forever. on account of the chemistry of the process, it laughed at power supply noise that would nuke any other cpu

13:31:25 asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: fast enough to keep up with blocks? possibly

13:31:37 BingoBoingo: Interesting.

13:31:48 asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: you'd have to bake something which can address >64k though

13:31:50 BingoBoingo: Run bitcoind is the new definition of fast

13:32:23 mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo it IS pretty much the baseline to distinguish computer from toy.

13:32:37 mircea_popescu: "if it can't sync it can't really be used seriously" makes a whole lotta sense.

13:32:54 asciilifeform: me, i just want something that'd sign a tx, while using no iron made after i was born

13:33:23 mircea_popescu: do you also want something that's warm and slippery while using no cells made after you were born ?

13:33:41 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 205887 @ 0.00035606 = 73.3081 BTC [-] {3}

13:33:42 asciilifeform: got one of these already

13:34:47 mircea_popescu: cells only last ~7 years you know.

13:34:52 asciilifeform: sure.

13:34:56 asciilifeform: speaking very loosely.

13:35:03 mircea_popescu: if you're speaking that loosely...

13:35:06 mircea_popescu: what are you even saying ?

13:35:26 *: asciilifeform still half asleep

13:35:59 nubbins`: hi

13:36:08 nubbins`: so i finally got my printer straightened out.

13:36:15 asciilifeform: it was bent ?

13:36:20 BingoBoingo: !b 2

13:36:21 assbot: Last 2 lines bashed and pending review. ( http://dpaste.com/15HYF6W.txt )

13:36:25 nubbins`: heh. figuratively, yes

13:36:36 mircea_popescu: nubbins` you know i left you a ding in the logs while back, you ever got it ?

13:36:40 mircea_popescu: ;;tells

13:36:41 gribble: Error: "tells" is not a valid command.

13:36:43 nubbins`: ah yes the booky-wook

13:36:51 nubbins`: is this a serial we're talking about?

13:37:18 asciilifeform: 'Good luck with that buckeroo. Looking forward to your complete rewrite of the Broadcom NetXtreme II 10/100/Gigabit firmware, by the way. There are about 25 versions of this product, and they have 4-6 MIPS 64-bit cpus running different firmwares on them. Total size, around 260K. It's like a bunch of independent operating systems running on propriety hardware!' << this is endemic and getting worse by the minute

13:37:19 mircea_popescu: i was thinking ima publish episodes on fraudsters an' then the whole thing

13:37:26 jurov: nubbins` did not get it cuz he reads irc out of the printer

13:37:28 nubbins`: ah, an anthology as it were

13:37:33 nubbins`: jurov STFU

13:37:43 nubbins`: go ahead and try to delete a line from my log

13:37:48 nubbins`: you'll need scissors and tape

13:38:07 mircea_popescu: is your log also only made out of paper that was there before you were born ?

13:38:09 BingoBoingo: Or a zippo

13:38:10 jurov: fire will do

13:38:23 BingoBoingo: Or humidity and time

13:38:27 nubbins`: mircea_popescu i order so much paper that the UPS guy is starting to not like me

13:38:55 mircea_popescu: yeah, because that's the monkey logic, "shit, this guy makes it so that i have a job!!1"

13:39:00 nubbins`: anyway. soaked the printhead in ammonia overnight. reassembled everything... it says all 6 cartridges are missing.

13:39:01 mircea_popescu: im so fucking sick of proles.

13:39:03 nubbins`: try this a couple more times.

13:39:11 asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: i like to pipe logs to thermal printer. (think 'cash register'). astonishingly fire-resistant, but does fade with time

13:39:16 nubbins`: turns out i was popping the fuckin ribbon out of the thing while inserting.

13:39:43 nubbins`: asciilifeform this is still a major use of dot matrix printers

13:39:58 BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: That is a serious problem with thermal. Twas a pain lighting the losing tickets friday night.

13:39:59 nubbins`: wait now, your thermal paper is fire-resistant?

13:40:00 nubbins`: o.O

13:40:10 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: un minimo respeto por el trabajador! (TM) (R)

13:40:14 mircea_popescu: fire retarded more like it

13:40:17 nubbins`: ^

13:40:27 nubbins`: funny thing is, i figured it was a lost cause

13:40:28 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform you're giving me spots on the spleen.

13:40:28 asciilifeform: nubbins`: aha. very annoying when burning otp

13:40:39 nubbins`: so i bought a replacement printer 30 minutes before i fixed the thing

13:40:44 asciilifeform: (what, not everyone prints one time pads on thermal paper ?)

13:40:52 nubbins`: then shrugged and decided not to cancel the order

13:40:55 nubbins`: because HEY

13:41:02 BingoBoingo: http://www.stltoday.com/business/local/to-land-syngenta-monsanto-offers-to-change-name-incorporate-in/article_da79bf37-0ccd-5dcd-aeb7-074e1e71fef1.html

13:41:03 assbot: To land Syngenta, Monsanto offers to change name, incorporate in U.K. : Business ... ( http://bit.ly/1JBUo7T )

13:41:03 nubbins`: why run two printers when you can run three?

13:41:03 mircea_popescu: which is good because it won't work anyway.

13:41:11 nubbins`: heh

13:41:18 nubbins`: mp actually these epsons are workhorses

13:41:23 nubbins`: 10/10 would/did buy again

13:41:52 asciilifeform: 'instead of printer, package contained bobcat. a++, would buy again' (tm)

13:41:56 nubbins`: haha

13:42:12 mircea_popescu: "her name was sheila"

13:42:21 mircea_popescu: "she was from odessa"

13:42:27 nubbins`: "but you can call her bob"

13:42:37 nubbins`: "she'll do things to your knob"

13:42:38 asciilifeform: https://xkcd.com/325

13:42:39 assbot: xkcd: A-Minus-Minus ... ( http://bit.ly/1JBUBb0 )

13:42:48 asciilifeform: ^ a little different from what i remembered

13:43:16 nubbins`: so were the 80s

13:44:07 nubbins`: also worth noting that a replacement print head was 50% the cost of a new printer

13:44:35 nubbins`: protip: if you can't service your printer yourself, buy a new one when it breaks

13:44:41 asciilifeform: nubbins`: was this that same printer where you ran a hose into the ink tank instead of swapping out cartridges ?

13:44:46 nubbins`: yes sir.

13:45:01 nubbins`: https://www.cobraink.com/CIS/CIS%20kits/1430%20kit/CIS%20Kit%201430.htm

13:45:03 assbot: .:: Cobra Ink Systems::. This is where the term CIS began ... ( http://bit.ly/1JBUQ5U )

13:45:12 nubbins`: ^ the old man who runs this company is a wizard

13:45:23 nubbins`: incredibly boring support videos but he knows the machines inside & out

13:45:35 *: asciilifeform used to do something quite like this with laser printer. it being, drill hole in cartridge, funnel, toner tanks from old xerox in office park dumpsters

13:45:37 asciilifeform: sorta worked

13:45:42 nubbins`: nod

13:45:48 nubbins`: i pay $25usd for 17oz of ink

13:46:13 asciilifeform: but eventually learned 1) toner comes in various granularities 2) is a real bitch to clean up, on account of 3) goes straight through a vacuum cleaner

13:46:57 mircea_popescu: the toner granularities thing is a fine example of biology in business.

13:47:13 mircea_popescu: the granules themselves are more or less engineered to clog competing heads.

13:47:23 asciilifeform: heads?!

13:47:47 asciilifeform: 'toner' in laser printer is pulverized plastic

13:48:12 asciilifeform: it is picked up by a rubber roller and deposited on selenium drum electrostatically

13:48:19 nubbins`: ^

13:48:36 nubbins`: inkjets have heads

13:48:51 nubbins`: and you should print with your printer at least once a week to keep them from drying out

13:48:56 asciilifeform: now, if 'wrong' granule size, or melting point, life of printer owner does become 'interesting'

13:49:17 mircea_popescu: whatever you call them

13:49:25 mircea_popescu: how do you call the "part which does the printing" in a printer ?

13:49:27 *: asciilifeform does not like liquid printers

13:49:54 nubbins`: mircea_popescu depends on the type of printer. in an inkjet it's a printhead

13:49:59 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: the printing per se worked. but sometimes the plastic would come right off the page when you fondled it.

13:50:09 nubbins`: a laser printer is closer to a lithograph than anything else

13:50:26 nubbins`: https://www.dropbox.com/s/sux12zfhww2dyun/TEST-PAGE.svg?dl=0

13:50:29 assbot: Dropbox - TEST-PAGE.svg ... ( http://bit.ly/1JBVu3l )

13:50:55 nubbins`: ^ for a 6-tank printer like mine

13:51:11 nubbins`: asciilifeform my cost per page is prolly lower than yours

13:51:15 nubbins`: altho TBF

13:51:25 nubbins`: inkjets are way, waaaaaaaaaaay slower than laser

13:51:33 nubbins`: and given that i doubt you do much fine art printing...

13:52:17 *: asciilifeform like a fool, picked up a surplus colour laser printer a couplea weeks ago. twentybux or so

13:52:38 asciilifeform: it works, but leads to decadence 'hmm, this code ought to have syntax colouring, let's print that'

13:52:49 nubbins`: heh.

13:53:06 nubbins`: "toner low in following cartridges: C (cyan). Y (yellow). M (magenta)."

13:53:07 asciilifeform: and eventually will have to be thrown out and bought again - who wants to buy four colours of toner

13:53:16 nubbins`: i buy off-brand toner

13:53:20 nubbins`: 123inkcartridges.ca

13:53:33 *: nubbins` also runs two Brother laser printers: one b/w, one colour

13:53:34 asciilifeform: nubbins`: in the colour laser, the expensive proprietary crud is the 'transfer belt'

13:53:45 asciilifeform: for which no chinese version, afaik, exists

13:53:52 nubbins`: is that separate from the drum unit?

13:53:55 asciilifeform: aha

13:54:04 *: nubbins` has replaced 1 drum

13:54:07 asciilifeform: a kind of conveyor, page-width, made from unobtainium

13:54:25 mircea_popescu: it's just plastic!

13:54:34 nubbins`: oh, wait, right

13:54:37 nubbins`: mine's white.

13:54:39 mircea_popescu: :D

13:54:41 nubbins`: runs under all the drums?

13:54:50 asciilifeform: nubbins`: aha

13:54:52 nubbins`: those have a life?!

13:55:01 asciilifeform: nubbins`: turns out, they do.

13:55:06 nubbins`: wow

13:55:07 mircea_popescu: insert girder.

13:55:19 asciilifeform: hence how colour laser printer ends up sold 'per pound' as surplus scrap

13:55:22 *: nubbins` has published novels on his laser printers, no belt replacement

13:55:29 nubbins`: (yet)

13:55:40 asciilifeform: nubbins`: these are found only in colour laser

13:55:56 nubbins`: ah. i've only run maybe 10-15 books through the colour one

13:56:04 asciilifeform: nubbins`: does yours have the evil usg yellow dots ?

13:56:11 nubbins`: i slayed an $80 Brother monochrone laser

13:56:15 nubbins`: asciilifeform no idea / who cares

13:56:18 asciilifeform: http://seeingyellow.com

13:56:19 assbot: Seeing Yellow ... ( http://bit.ly/1JBWbto )

13:56:25 nubbins`: heard of em

13:56:34 nubbins`: but i'd use the epson for copying currency anyway

13:56:39 nubbins`: (hypothetically)

13:56:46 asciilifeform: interesting mainly on account of 'usg gets to slip code blobs into consumer appliances' thing

13:56:58 nubbins`: SWIM hypothetically did this in their youth for a while

13:57:20 asciilifeform: l0l

13:57:55 asciilifeform: medieval counterfeiters, famously, got to drink molten lead (or sometimes, for showmanship, gold...) when caught. modern ones will one day be drowned in buckets of inkjet ?

13:58:02 nubbins`: imagine passing off some of this strange to a cashier, and while you're waiting for your food, guy behind you in line receives some as change

13:58:05 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 116300 @ 0.00035828 = 41.668 BTC [+] {2}

13:58:10 nubbins`: asciilifeform too expensive!

13:58:13 nubbins`: $5-8k/gallon

13:58:23 nubbins`: altho i guess they'd buy the bulk stuff huh.

13:59:38 asciilifeform: speaking of counterfeiters, i once read a fascinating bio paper where folks determined the actual cause of death of 'drink molten lead'

13:59:47 asciilifeform: by testing with cattle carcass

14:00:02 asciilifeform: turned out, it's almost certainly steam inhalation

14:00:09 asciilifeform: (from own flesh boiling)

14:00:27 asciilifeform: there were some good photos of resulting 'castings' also.

14:00:42 asciilifeform: i often wonder if any period 'castings' of this kind have been turned up by archaeologists.

14:01:03 kakobrekla: urlpls

14:03:56 assbot: Logged on 09-06-2015 12:59:40; mircea_popescu: amusing how transparent the usg efforts of turning bitcoin into gold are, by the way. "oh, we don't want to kill bitcoin, honest, we just want to make it so we're the only ones that can safely hold it. you know... like gold..."

14:04:18 mircea_popescu: except that only works on idiots.

14:04:27 mircea_popescu: the "you can't hold it" thing works on everyone. huge difference.

14:04:38 mircea_popescu: which is why the incensed bitching.

14:05:09 asciilifeform: the waterfall also works on everyone. but is expensive to maintain, yes

14:06:06 mircea_popescu: no baby, iot does NOPT work on everyone.

14:06:20 mircea_popescu: soros' breaking of the bank of england should be the only example you might ever need.

14:06:28 mircea_popescu: i LOVE!!11 the fact that they're giving me free money this way

14:06:36 mircea_popescu: and i don't care how much of it comes out of the skins of idiots.

14:06:55 mircea_popescu: actually, i hope most of it does, and i hope it comes out of their corneas and their daughter's labia.

14:07:13 asciilifeform: well, on one hand, mircea_popescu gets to pick up cheap coin. but on other, can't buy spare reactor for dirigible for 1 btc

14:07:20 mircea_popescu: there ~IS~ a reason they switched from trying that to trying gavincoin last year.

14:08:45 asciilifeform: in as far as i can surmise, the 'dept. of accumulating btc for the lizard throne' and 'dept. of breaking btc because wtf 111' co-exist

14:09:03 mircea_popescu: now wonder along with me : WHY is it that shithead gavin is SO VERY FIRMLY CONVINCED this must be done "before the end of the year" ? hm ?

14:09:18 mircea_popescu: who and where told them "we're getting wiped, at the most last out another three, maaaaybe six months" ?

14:09:30 asciilifeform: the thing which boggles my mind is, why not yet

14:09:38 mircea_popescu: because reasons.

14:09:42 asciilifeform: what, precisely, keeps the schmuck from twiddling the constant -now-

14:09:57 mircea_popescu: always reasons. the fact that nothing's instantaneous in the physical world is the chief reason there may even be life in the first place.

14:10:04 mircea_popescu: think about a world where interaction were undelayed.

14:10:11 asciilifeform: what, the filipinos have to grunt out precisely 1GB of forum commentz ?

14:10:37 asciilifeform: 'time is for keeping all things from happening at once' (tm) (r)

14:10:46 mircea_popescu: what is it that makes the speed of chemical reaction be the speed of chemical reaction ?

14:10:54 mircea_popescu: what, the electrons have to spin 1billion times ?

14:11:19 asciilifeform: l0l

14:11:30 asciilifeform: (all things have inertial mass, is the proximate cause)

14:11:47 mircea_popescu: not even.

14:12:01 mircea_popescu: inertial mass is, much like the "centrifugal force", a matter of observer observing

14:13:22 asciilifeform: btw i fully expect to see the classical bitcoin net under organized crap flood in near future.

14:13:32 mircea_popescu: as in... last week ?

14:13:32 mircea_popescu: doh.

14:13:37 asciilifeform: (with gavincoin pushes as 'elixir' naturally)

14:13:48 mircea_popescu: kinda why the scoring nodes are important

14:13:53 asciilifeform: why do you suppose i took precious time to run the orphans experiment

14:14:02 mircea_popescu: aha.

14:14:37 nubbins`: how many times have i heard "there are only 6000 nodes"

14:14:45 nubbins`: people are gonna be really surprised some day

14:14:52 mircea_popescu: and the thing that keeps schmuck is, the thing that keeps all schmucks. fear.

14:14:59 asciilifeform: nubbins`: do you recall my experiment where we estimated how many living nodes ?

14:15:09 nubbins`: the experiment but not the results

14:15:17 asciilifeform: results were depressing

14:16:03 nubbins`: <6k

14:16:04 nubbins`: ?

14:16:11 asciilifeform: <60

14:16:15 nubbins`: :o

14:16:20 nubbins`: how'd bitnodes find so many?

14:16:37 asciilifeform: by counting turdation crud as 'node' ?

14:16:41 mircea_popescu: this of course is in the logs

14:17:08 asciilifeform: it is on therealbitcoin ml

14:17:09 mircea_popescu: nubbins` bitnodes is in the business of finding what it wants to find.

14:19:13 *: nubbins` mumbles something about getting pogos running

14:19:16 mircea_popescu: why did it go away and why don't you remember it ?

14:19:26 mircea_popescu: human physiology, the stuff the memory hole effect's made of.

14:19:32 nubbins`: prolly a combination of poor memory and drug use

14:19:50 mircea_popescu: more like, the brain's not made for thinking anymore than bitnodes' is made to count nodes.

14:19:57 mircea_popescu: they're both made to make you feel good.

14:20:07 asciilifeform: incidentally, i assume everyone remembers the usg-sponsored outfit publicly parading their net of sybils (based on 'pseudonode' or something entirely like it. student can write equivalent in an evening)

14:20:39 nubbins`: or was i the only one barking up that tree

14:20:50 asciilifeform: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=09-06-2015#1158085 << mega-l0l! i think mine was made to feel like shit

14:20:50 assbot: Logged on 09-06-2015 14:19:57; mircea_popescu: they're both made to make you feel good.

14:20:57 nubbins`: mircea_popescu fwiw smart people do depression way better than idiots.

14:21:01 asciilifeform: so i sorta assumed it was for that.

14:21:03 mircea_popescu: obviously.

14:21:10 mircea_popescu: they actually have a right to it.

14:21:26 mircea_popescu: rather than pretending depression under false pretenses much like "ununderstood" adolescents pretend to be gay.

14:21:27 asciilifeform: nubbins`: i have buildroot working to my satisfaction. esp. after davout fixed the bug in mke2fs

14:21:37 asciilifeform: nubbins`: but now we need a fully uclibc-ized bitcoind

14:21:45 nubbins`: that's where i was stuck.

14:21:49 davout: asciilifeform: mazeltov

14:22:02 nubbins`: got buildroot built to my satisfaction, stalled up on actuall compiling bitcoind dependencies

14:22:08 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform you know, in all that story a release is required.

14:22:18 mircea_popescu: do we yet have something that people can put on pogo and run ?

14:22:21 asciilifeform: nubbins`: the next necessary step is the complete excision of dns from bitcoind

14:22:31 nubbins`: mircea_popescu i've had a statically built bitcoind for months now

14:22:37 nubbins`: i just can't re-create the build ;/

14:22:42 mircea_popescu: nubbins` exactly my point.

14:22:54 asciilifeform: nubbins`: once this is done, it will be theoretically possible to build uclibc-ized bitcoind

14:23:04 asciilifeform: and roll out buildroot+bitcoind buildatron

14:23:13 mircea_popescu: whichd be sweet.

14:23:26 nubbins`: actually, compiling boost w/ the buildroot toolchain is what had me stuck

14:23:29 asciilifeform: i have a months-old patch on the ml, which got lost among the nuts and bolts, that nukes dns seeds

14:23:30 mircea_popescu: pingin' ben_vulpes along with erryone else.

14:23:35 asciilifeform: but this leaves the idiot 'whatismyip' thing

14:23:45 asciilifeform: and a few other invocations

14:23:49 asciilifeform: these - need to go

14:23:57 nubbins`: i recall the discussion on that

14:24:23 nubbins`: i think we reached an impasse as to what was the proper way to find one's own ip and then other nodes

14:24:33 asciilifeform: nubbins`: there is a fallback in there - irc

14:24:38 nubbins`: right, yeah

14:24:47 nubbins`: imagine

14:24:52 asciilifeform: nubbins`: if we snip out the 'whatismyip' thing, that becomes the one and only turtle on which the elephants stand

14:25:03 mircea_popescu: nubbins` not exactly, config files.

14:25:19 nubbins`: fuck, right, yeah.

14:25:25 asciilifeform: and bitcoind will have to be given either a) own external ip, in config or b) ip of irc net to connect to

14:25:25 mircea_popescu: what sort of remembering is this!

14:25:29 nubbins`: text file sitting in the root dir

14:25:33 *: nubbins` gestures to the drugs

14:25:37 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform that is the runner's problem.

14:25:41 mircea_popescu: and it is a correct solution.

14:25:57 mircea_popescu: the approach here is to breach enemy's reliability,

14:26:02 asciilifeform: this is probably when i confess that i have this sitting on my disk already

14:26:02 mircea_popescu: nothing more.

14:26:07 asciilifeform: needs to be cleaned up, tested, posted.

14:26:11 nubbins`: woo

14:26:13 asciilifeform: perhaps - this week's the time.

14:26:21 nubbins`: oh wow, i missed out on the eulora thing

14:26:46 *: asciilifeform actually considered buying a box on which eulora is playable

14:26:49 mircea_popescu: myeah

14:27:01 *: nubbins` does not "game"

14:27:24 mircea_popescu: why not ?

14:27:29 nubbins`: lack of interest

14:27:40 nubbins`: <--filthy casual

14:27:47 nubbins`: i'll kick your ass at mario kart 8 tho

14:27:57 mircea_popescu: i dun think you comprehend how much ass eulora kicks and will kick in the future.

14:28:03 *: asciilifeform bbl

14:28:17 mircea_popescu: but i'll tell you this much : im sick and tired of having to switch games.

14:28:24 mircea_popescu: so im going to make this one work and play it forever.

14:28:36 nubbins`: i've got a vague idea. why else would i take a 25btc stock warrant? ;p

14:29:00 mircea_popescu: lol

14:29:19 nubbins`: valid answers include "that time you used it to earn 1btc on bitbet"

14:29:46 mircea_popescu: haha what was that ?

14:30:08 mircea_popescu: anyway, you missed out a 1337 satoshi/day permabag by not coming to sunday's event.

16:40:50 ben_vulpes: pete_dushenski: let's start a school

16:41:02 pete_dushenski: i'm in.

16:41:17 pete_dushenski: 1. teachers can physically discipline students

16:41:29 pete_dushenski: 2. students will learn to type on physical keyboards

16:41:37 pete_dushenski: 3. no touchscreens allowed on the premises

16:41:53 mircea_popescu: not swearing won't get you to heaven pete_dushenski

16:41:56 ascii_field: pete_dushenski: realize that this is not unlike the 'everyone will learn to write' thing from back in the day

16:42:01 pete_dushenski: 4. sexual education is to be taught in praxis, not just theory

16:42:02 ben_vulpes: teachers'll have to order parents to do so, as the thing of necessity'll have to run over teh wotnet

16:42:34 mircea_popescu: now that's an idea.

16:42:50 pete_dushenski: i'm not done...

16:43:08 pete_dushenski: 5. students will learn to think, then learn the alphabet, then learn to read

16:44:08 ben_vulpes: i also suspect that the initial stable of teachers will actually be the parents. nobody else is going to give a shit and la serenissima runs on deficits anyways.

16:44:13 mircea_popescu: "students will learn to fly then grow the wings most adequate to their preferred flight style"

16:44:18 ascii_field: ^^^^

16:44:19 mircea_popescu: "which will forthwith change as a result"

16:44:44 mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes more importantly : why would you as a kid take a beating from someone you're not a in a sexual relationship with

16:44:58 pete_dushenski: 6. those not academically inclined will be pruned from academic studies at age 13 to pursue technical professions

16:45:02 mircea_popescu: romans had forbidden slaves (ie, teachers, more broadly, bureaucrats) beating their kids as a cornerstone of civility.

16:45:15 mircea_popescu: pete_dushenski what if they become inclined at 19 ?

16:45:22 jurov: how is this determined at 13?

16:45:40 pete_dushenski: mircea_popescu: then self-teach ? go back to school ?

16:45:50 pete_dushenski: jurov: tests.

16:45:55 mircea_popescu: what if they go back to school with a chip on their shoulder

16:45:59 mircea_popescu: and set your entire world ablaze ?

16:46:11 ben_vulpes: not a bad outcome.

16:46:20 mircea_popescu: the focus of this process should not be satisfaction of the designer

16:46:31 mircea_popescu: but moreover avoidance of the situation where you piss off the rightly powerful.

16:46:40 jurov: there are tests for that?

16:46:40 mircea_popescu: shit on the powerless, that's what they're there for.

16:47:11 pete_dushenski: jurov: why not ?

16:47:20 pete_dushenski: mircea_popescu: how is "rightly" determined ?

16:47:26 mircea_popescu: why not is not a permissible question in this context.

16:47:33 mircea_popescu: rightly is determined by that they put your world ablaze.

16:47:41 jurov: pete_dushenski: because human mind?

16:48:12 ascii_field: pete_dushenski: visit jp, ru, cn, or - hell - us for that matter, to see how the 'tests' thing works out

16:48:15 ascii_field: in practice.

16:48:33 trinque: the right kids will want to learn

16:48:37 mircea_popescu: the concept of performance tests is not unlike the concept of postcard tourism.

16:48:44 trinque: I tend to think you have to beat that out of the intelligent if it's absent

16:48:46 mircea_popescu: "i've visited all the places my friends sent me cards from"

16:48:48 pete_dushenski: tests can be interviews, written exams, theatre performances...

16:48:49 trinque: and the wrong ones shouldn't be in the school

16:49:39 mircea_popescu: the only half decent approximation of a test would be, "either you go to school where each day for a year contains a beating, or else we kill you in six years".

16:49:56 ascii_field: pete_dushenski: try to grasp that 'perform on schedule' selects for certain kinds of human, not necessarily the ones you like.

16:50:05 mircea_popescu: kids can opt whether to die young and leave a beautiful corpse much before any serious effort was spent on them

16:50:38 pete_dushenski: ascii_field: i'm perfectly aware. i wasn't the cram-exam type myself !

16:51:04 pete_dushenski: mircea_popescu: kids can opt this for themselves ? not too young ?

16:51:07 ascii_field: mircea_popescu: you're approximately describing 19th c. ru military academy. except there you get beatings + death in six years

16:51:20 mircea_popescu: pete_dushenski apparently they're not too young to live and breathe.

16:51:32 pete_dushenski: neither is 1-day-old

16:52:20 pete_dushenski: with tests !

16:52:23 mircea_popescu: o i know, put folic acid in everyone' flour

16:52:25 mircea_popescu: and tests

16:52:26 mircea_popescu: yes yes.

16:52:31 ascii_field: it boggles my mind to see folks arguing for -more- perform-on-schedule-like-dancing-bear in child-herding

16:53:02 mircea_popescu: ascii_field the problem of child-herding, so far unresolved, is that women care too much and men don't understand wtf is in the box.

16:53:03 ben_vulpes: eh give him a break - the canuks get all their ideas from their southern protector

16:53:33 pete_dushenski: ben_vulpes: lol not true ! i read books and things too.

16:53:35 ascii_field: we already know the kind of people 'star pupils' grow up to be

16:53:37 mircea_popescu: so all that can conceivably be done is protection and tests.

17:29:57 ascii_field: mircea_popescu: the 'cleaner' in question was a util that is meant to clean up the explosion of blood and guts which results in perl upgrading on a gentoo box

17:30:26 mircea_popescu: unlike the profilers.

17:31:30 ascii_field: not really related except in the sense that the hose in a mortician's workshop is related to surgeon's endoscope

17:35:18 ascii_field: mircea_popescu: btw i regard valgrind, igprof, etc. as 'c cleaners' rather than cpp. they only kinda, sorta work on cpp

17:35:38 mircea_popescu: because it never happened that if one "upgrades" suddenly c++ code stops working
