01:19:35 phf: ben_vulpes: so it looks from the log like it's still picking up bullet from somewhere. i updated the repo, so now there's an explicit --without-bullet in the script, if you do brew update and rerun. i tested it by installing bullet and then doing a cs build

01:20:12 phf: come to think of it i should probably test that it fails without the flag but with bullet present. i'll spin that up now..

01:25:56 phf: ben_vulpes: wait, can you please check your log bundle. i'm getting diff identical folders from the first one i get and the updated one

03:15:44 asciilifeform: pete_dushenski: post your makefile plz

03:15:50 asciilifeform: and your buildscript

03:16:47 pete_dushenski: seriously all i did was install os and follow steps outlined in http://therealbitcoin.org/ml/btc-dev/2015-August/000140.html

03:16:48 assbot: [BTC-dev] UPDATE: v0.5.4-TEST2 Pre-patched Test Bundle : Testers Needed! ... ( http://bit.ly/1DEslTm )

03:17:06 phf: ag3nt_zer0: raw didn't pen principia, that's just a persistent misconception, in FACT it was revealed to trinque in its complete form by the divine mother HERSELF (hail eris!) during some of his particularly strong ACID trips (10 strip, they said it was weak, so he took 6, damn, man, i'm seeing things ain't even come up yet), at which point he traveled back in TIME to spread the good word to the honest people of california. this and much mo

03:17:06 phf: re was explained in grant morrison's INVISIBLES series. get your facts, straight son, straight from the source. fnord.

03:18:25 asciilifeform: pete_dushenski: i wrote rotor for a reason

03:18:31 asciilifeform: the reason being that this is a waste of life

03:18:39 asciilifeform: yes, i could sit down and debug this

03:19:00 asciilifeform: but seven other people will come and each one will bring seven idiocies from his local os

03:19:21 asciilifeform: and each of those will need seven workarounds to be forced with red hot irons to behave in FUCKING STANDARD WAY

03:20:09 asciilifeform: rotor differs in that it is enough for you to find ~one~ box where it can be made to go

03:20:15 asciilifeform: and use that binary for the rest of your life if you like.

03:20:47 asciilifeform: i STILL don't understand why just about everybody insists on building stator.

03:21:57 pete_dushenski: asciilifeform: i know you wrote rotor for a reason, of this there is little doubt, but believe it or not, your instructions aren't dumbed down enough for me

03:22:07 pete_dushenski: they're not far off, mind

03:22:23 asciilifeform: pete_dushenski: if you're up to it, try building, i'll walk you through it while i'm awake

03:23:16 pete_dushenski: ok, lemme reinstall os and start fresh

03:23:23 asciilifeform: no need to reinstall os

03:23:27 asciilifeform: pick just about any linux box

03:23:32 asciilifeform: and go from there

03:23:43 pete_dushenski: oh ok

03:23:43 asciilifeform: if you can get a bash prompt, you oughta get a working build.

03:24:00 asciilifeform: start the recipe and prod me when you hit a stumble.

03:30:49 mod6: hi pete_dushenski

03:31:05 mod6: Let me dig something up for you here quick.

03:32:56 mod6: http://dpaste.com/3T9YGXC.txt

03:32:57 assbot: ... ( http://bit.ly/1KbgRDZ )

03:33:30 asciilifeform: apt-get install -y libboost-python-dev

03:33:30 asciilifeform: apt-get install -y libbz2-dev

03:33:30 asciilifeform: apt-get install -y zlib1g-dev

03:33:33 asciilifeform: ^ for fucks sake

03:33:35 asciilifeform: why?

03:33:43 asciilifeform: neither stator nor rotor needs these!


03:34:00 mod6: Right, should be trying to bulid the Rotor, really.

03:34:29 asciilifeform: stator doesn't need them either !

03:34:56 asciilifeform: if your stator did not build before but builds after running the above, IT IS NOT STATIC !!!

03:35:11 mod6: However, I have seen that on Ubuntu & Debian if you build boost without libboost-python-dev boost will complain -- it will still compile, but it'll complain. it complains less with the python errors if it has that and the libbost-python-dev dependentcies installed.

03:35:31 asciilifeform: ^ you are using CRUD FROM OUTSIDE THE STATIC BALL

03:35:39 asciilifeform: defeating the very purpose of stator.

03:35:57 asciilifeform: introducing local turdlets over which you have no meaningful control.

03:36:00 mod6: er

03:36:03 mod6: yeah.

03:36:10 mod6: im mis remembering that from v0.5.3.1

03:36:11 asciilifeform: why even bother then.

03:36:59 mod6: pete_dushenski: don't bother with the testing for TEST2 (or anyone else), just work for now on building rotor.

03:37:21 pete_dushenski: okilee dokilee :)

03:37:24 mod6: I appreciate you trying to build it.

03:37:51 asciilifeform: i also appreciated. how else would we have learned that i am the last one alive with a sane linux install, for instance.

03:38:15 assbot: Okily Dokily - Simpsons You Only Move Twice - YouTube ... ( http://bit.ly/1Kbh9eb )

03:40:21 mod6: I can not wait until we get past all of this.

03:41:44 pete_dushenski: hehe i'm having fun !

03:41:54 pete_dushenski: being a lab rat isn't world's worst job after all

03:42:13 pete_dushenski: every day a new maze, then... cheese !

03:42:34 *: asciilifeform still wonders what that 'cheese' thing would smell like

03:43:16 ag3nt_zer0: phf: hahaha was that really in the INVISIBLES?

03:43:43 pete_dushenski: asciilifeform: napalm perhaps.

03:43:45 ag3nt_zer0: shit about wilson and all that?

03:43:52 mod6: asciilifeform: so, what my goal is, short term, is to produce a bundle that (similar to TEST2) is patched up through -verifyall that we can drop into the rotor, and use that for testing next.

03:44:13 asciilifeform: mod6: i think you already have this ?

03:44:19 asciilifeform: (rotor takes a stator)

03:44:41 ag3nt_zer0: I never looked at that comic... I saw Morrison speak and thought he was weird haha

03:44:51 mod6: yeah. but your bundle doesn't have the right directory structure, and doesn't really have a patching trail or anything.

03:45:08 asciilifeform: my rotor bundle doesn't come with a stator at all

03:45:13 asciilifeform: it has to be supplied by the operator

03:45:19 mod6: so i don't wanna seem like im replicating work; just trying to clean it up a bit.

03:45:22 ag3nt_zer0: i mean I get the whole thing he was on about but he was seemd stragley excited haha

03:45:26 mod6: right

03:45:37 mod6: it has to be downloaded seperately. thats fine. i did this today.

03:46:20 mod6: was thinking that next I'll work on a patched bundle up through -verify all with rotor. and then work ourselves up to a place where we feel comfortable.

03:46:45 pete_dushenski: bbiab

03:46:52 mod6: do you think we should even bother with block dump/eat, -verify all?

03:47:03 asciilifeform: mod6: i regard them as useful

03:47:04 mod6: (in a "release")

03:47:13 asciilifeform: mod6: esp. for standing up nodes

03:47:21 asciilifeform: but also for debugging wedge states

03:47:25 asciilifeform: and generally.

03:47:30 mod6: so it wouldnt be a waste of my time to proceed in that direction?

03:47:34 asciilifeform: also it is possible to hash a blockchain using dumpblock

03:47:45 asciilifeform: (see ml for example of me doing so for a chain loaded from mircea_popescu)

03:47:55 mod6: yup, i recall.

03:47:56 asciilifeform: not a waste by any means.

03:48:19 ag3nt_zer0: phf: still lolzing haha thx fnord! fucking california haha

03:48:21 asciilifeform: i personally regard these as important knobs and their absence from the original bitcoin as an atrocity

03:48:29 mod6: ok. that's my next basic goal. build a patched bundle up through verify-all with rotor.

03:49:07 mod6: once we have that, and a new patch from trinque, i can complete my script and have a rotor that builds these test bundles with x86-64

03:49:44 mod6: make sense?

03:49:52 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 8450 @ 0.00060043 = 5.0736 BTC [-]

03:49:53 asciilifeform: aha

03:49:56 mod6: :]

03:50:05 mod6: was nice to see rotor build cleanly today btw.

03:50:18 asciilifeform: didja have to use trinque's patch ?

03:50:21 mod6: yeah

03:50:35 asciilifeform: oughta be part of the official ball then

03:50:53 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 1700 @ 0.00060043 = 1.0207 BTC [-]

03:51:18 mod6: was a gentoo/glibc environement -- compiled buildroot with the musl settings. didn't change anything to the "rotor" steps execept for adding the change to BDB configure options in trinque's message.

03:52:01 mod6: yah, I left him a note to re-send a patch with a detached sig to the ML. can help or do it for him if required, etc.

03:52:09 mod6: no giant rush tho.

03:52:17 phf: ag3nt_zer0: inivisibles is like a popcorn pulp version of pkd, illuminatus and magick. it's a fun read when you're 24, but definitely worth a read through if you're into that sort of stuff

03:53:39 ag3nt_zer0: it's no secret that california shares a magickal connection based on the law of correspondences to the Hindu goddess of destruction and the final age of dissolution, Kali... nor is it coincidence that the sun sets on the western world in KaliforniCaitlynJender - Bernardino porno bender blender

03:56:51 ag3nt_zer0: phf: i dunno; after he said he wrote his own reality and as he was writing the things he was writing were coming true I figured the comic couldnt be better than that...

04:01:01 phf: i only vaguely remember that talk, because i listened to it under the influence, and at some point i was convinced that i could perform magical rituals, and the only thing keeping me from fundamentally affecting reality was years of societal conditioning that i could at the time overcome. i think i was also at some point convinced that bush was a great grandson of aliester crowley by way of pauline pierce, and that he's going to bring about

04:01:01 phf: the appocalypse. the details are a bit hazy

04:02:10 phf: *that i could not

04:03:26 ag3nt_zer0: yeah... you ever look into the jack parsons/crowley/hubbard threesome?

04:03:40 ag3nt_zer0: pretty weird considering what hubbard went on to do

04:03:49 ag3nt_zer0: in Kali haha

04:04:30 phf: i'm sure hubbard just lifted whatever he could from his time at the agape lodge

04:07:07 phf: parsons is quite a character, there's a nice writeup about him and the whole crowley/hubbard connection in "apocalypse culture"

04:11:01 phf: though i'm not sure how much i want to put to public record on this subject. i made some interesting friends when i moved to this country, unfortunately this whole culture seemed to have died out. even when i was enjoying it, it was mostly archival work

04:46:52 mircea_popescu: trinque actually trump has been rich for a while.

04:47:30 onlooker: hi there, would you like to share your thoughts on copyright? I've only come across your writings today and found them most entertaining.

04:47:46 mircea_popescu: iirc lost it all in a dubious las vegas casinos transaction with fucking merv griffin.

04:47:58 mircea_popescu: onlooker it's complicated.

04:48:12 trinque: mircea_popescu: one thing occured to me this evening re: trump. he's telling the other people running to their faces that he's bought and paid for all of them in the past.

04:48:14 trinque: I love that.

04:48:25 trinque: mod6: putting that email together

04:48:47 n6: hanbot: sorry I lost my key(Not a person), still trying to fix my lsub issue on gentoo before I make a new one.

04:49:02 onlooker: lol, well thats no surprise, governments specialize in making simple things complicated

04:49:04 mircea_popescu: it's not really true. man's no rockerfeller. son of a middling queens landlord is all.

04:50:27 asciilifeform: i don't see how it 'is complicated' at all. folks who wanna be paid when i copy a number, get a raging hardon for the state (tm) (r) when it makes noises of promise to make it happen

04:51:19 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform ever been privy to something on the understanding you won't be sharing it ?

04:51:30 asciilifeform: sure

04:51:40 mircea_popescu: do you propose to do away with the POSSIBLITY of that understanding ?

04:51:56 asciilifeform: nah. just object to this kind of thing happening in a consumer setting

04:52:02 mircea_popescu: yeah, well, then... it's complicated.

04:52:19 asciilifeform: where the negotiating leverage on one side of the table is nil

04:52:22 mircea_popescu: as usual, consumers have no business in any of the places they stuff themselve.s

04:52:38 onlooker: I don't think copyright is the same thing as keeping a secret, if you keep a secret and you keep it well then you don't need copyright

04:52:44 hanbot: n6 alright, so then make that your top priority.

04:52:53 asciilifeform: when i buy a piece of shit from a street merchant i ain't taking no oath.

04:53:00 asciilifeform: he wants oath, can fuck himself

04:53:03 mircea_popescu: that's between you two.

04:53:05 mircea_popescu: so then...

04:53:14 asciilifeform: 'click-through oath!!!'

04:53:31 onlooker: if you fail to keep a secret they you have two choices, you can blame yourself for not keeping it well, or you can blame me and try to enforce copyright

04:53:33 mircea_popescu: don't be coming to me to relieve you of oaths you took on the theory that you shouldn't have and if you were a better man you wouldn't have.

04:53:49 asciilifeform: except i didn't

04:54:13 mircea_popescu: then i don't need to have an oppinion on it.

04:54:20 n6: hanbot: thanks I will get on that right now.

04:54:20 asciilifeform: well somebody mentioned 'copyright'

04:54:38 asciilifeform: which as i understand is the perverse concept that somebody gets to bang on my door and demand gold for copying a number

04:55:04 mircea_popescu: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=08-08-2015#1231425 << jesus definitely was a socialist. something something all people something.

04:55:04 assbot: Logged on 08-08-2015 22:47:43; ag3nt_zer0: something about the jesus would have been a socialist shit

04:55:45 onlooker: mircea popescu, you don't need to have an opinion about the color of you shit either lol...

04:55:56 mircea_popescu: there's a fraudsters article about that, actually.

04:55:57 asciilifeform: 'tis one thing if i was given a secret, swore an other. entirely other thing when i find a number scribbled on the sidewalk and decide to scribble it elsewhere

04:56:07 asciilifeform: *an oath

04:56:14 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform supposedly it wasn't on the sidewalk.

04:56:36 asciilifeform: ?

04:56:52 n6: trinque, asciilifeform: Would you be able to point me to a place where I can learn how to build lsub on my mac then put it on a usb drive and move it to gentoo so I can get wireless working and make a key?

04:57:03 mircea_popescu: consider the controlling case, as i opposed it to diametric s question back in the day. so quentin tarantino comes in here all upsed about you copying his latest movie. what do i say, "fuck off qt, if you made a movie you didn'ty make that movie" ?

04:57:08 asciilifeform: n6: nope

05:00:12 asciilifeform: french?

05:00:14 onlooker: I asked if you had an opinion, from the perspective of someone who seems intelligent and uses bigger words than me. I appreciate you taking the time to reply at all, I don't mind if you have no opinion, just I hoped you would see copyright as the elitists use to tell poor people they are not allowed to think

05:00:22 mircea_popescu: yeah.

05:05:00 onlooker: mircea popescu, yes, but you appear to be of the more logical bent than the standard elitist. Take for example your claim the paying for good things is how we get good things, this may be logical, but in fact the way the world currently works stealing good things has proven to be far more effective, Bankers are elitist too, would you put yourself in the same category as them?

05:05:05 phf: rimbaud naturally

05:05:38 mircea_popescu: onlooker i am de facto a banker, but i doubt the term has any substantial meaning to you past "those meanie assholes that make the house i want cost more than i can afford".

05:05:45 mircea_popescu: phf win.

05:06:08 mircea_popescu: the argument re stealing is actually ancient. it was articulated by the pillars of roman thought, of all people.

Anyway, I won't pay for your work, despite admiring your lovely way with language. I just feel that the one thing you miss is that you are not the only one able to come up with genius. Did one person invent the light globe? Copyright seems to say yes, but then the history of the victors is nothing new

05:13:31 mircea_popescu: in this view the nsa spying is more a required public service, like emergency health care.

05:13:58 mircea_popescu: onlooker copyright does not refer to inventions.

05:14:14 onlooker: at least Bitcoin is giving a larger voice to some

05:14:29 asciilifeform: wai wut ?!

05:14:58 mircea_popescu: which of the i dunno, three or so

05:15:11 asciilifeform: the 'bitcoin gives voice'

05:15:24 mircea_popescu: lol irony

05:15:26 mircea_popescu: !up onlooker

05:15:35 mircea_popescu: well, it gives voice to someone somewhere i'm sure.

05:15:44 asciilifeform: the 'gurl with 1000 beta' is pretty clear, though it is a case of '1,2,3,infinity'

05:15:53 mircea_popescu: so it is.

05:15:59 asciilifeform: consider a circa-1990s email box

05:16:51 trinque: np

05:17:01 onlooker: mircea, if you are distinguishing between copyright and patents it seems a petty distinction to me. I put them in the same category, both intend to punish people for copying thoughts and ideas

05:17:10 mircea_popescu: when did knuth give it up, 86 ?

05:17:36 asciilifeform: '89 iirc but not related to spam

05:17:43 asciilifeform: just to the chore of interacting with people

05:18:04 mircea_popescu: onlooker one attaches to form, the other attaches to concept. this is a fundamental distinction in any case. see the earlier thread re lost 1800 tech know-how, and the russian z80s.

05:18:37 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform you perceive a difference there ?

05:18:52 onlooker: askiilifeform, perhaps I should say math is giving voice to the poor, because it doesn't distinguish my data from yours

05:19:03 mircea_popescu: o.O

05:19:14 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: between the chore of shoveling '98 spam and the chore of answering mail from other maths folks ?

05:19:36 asciilifeform: yes, difference. (though i appreciate knuth's choice)

05:19:38 mircea_popescu: what is it ? lower bar for one group ?

05:19:50 asciilifeform: one is people and the other is cockroaches

05:20:17 asciilifeform: both 'kingdom animalia', sure

05:21:32 mircea_popescu: onlooker how are the poor getting correct data iyo ?

05:21:40 asciilifeform: ^

05:22:39 mircea_popescu: especially with no copyright. they just get cut out of the loop entirely.

05:23:20 asciilifeform: onlooker: consider, for instance, the predicament of somebody trying to correctly implement plain old rsa algo.

05:23:27 asciilifeform: if you think that you can do it from a textbook, think again.

05:23:30 mircea_popescu: to everyone's benefit, this, of course. but anyway.

05:23:41 asciilifeform: and rsa is ~much~ simpler than, e.g., bitcoin.

05:24:04 asciilifeform: yet virtually anyone who has ever done it, had to saw open six different existing incarnations and study

05:24:18 mircea_popescu: what textbooks ? there are no textbooks because why sell shit for 10 dollars

05:24:27 asciilifeform: and ~still~ had even chances of blowing own head off

05:25:19 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: 'textbooks' in this case being - once you reject the outright drivel and pediwikia printouts - dour and very terse, encyclopaedic overview of the basic maths, typically

05:25:37 mircea_popescu: which strictly exists because of the whole IP convention.

05:25:46 onlooker: I have a son, he's 9 months old, I have to change his nappy, he doesn't respect math, time, copyright or patent. He's poor. My nephew is 12, he has no money of his own, but he has a computer, mines his own coins, and although they are not worth much, he's able to participate, He can't participate in Banking, he's not even allowed to use his own account

05:27:23 onlooker: who are the vast majority of the poor? well, I would argue that those under 15 in the USSA have the biggest skin in the economic game despite being currently mostly excluded from it lol... Crypto could/may change that

05:27:50 asciilifeform: pray tell, how

05:27:59 mircea_popescu: turns out a bunch of pakis trafficked white girls as young as 12 by the thousands, for the reason of being white. which was concealed by the brits.

05:28:30 mircea_popescu: onlooker under 15 what, yo ?!

05:28:46 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: could've sworn this was in the logz

05:29:12 mircea_popescu: if it was i missed it. but really, 20 years, 1-2k girls, this broadly speaking is on par with the results of the serbs.

05:29:36 asciilifeform: except that it was done by the darlings of the lizards

05:29:36 onlooker: mircea popescu, ask yourself this, would bitcoin work without copyright, if the answer is yes, then it's not a requirement for ideas to be shared while keeping an ownership record

05:33:26 onlooker: let me try another angle, would bitcoin work if it wasn't copyrighted? And if the answer is yes, does it follow that this means we can share ideas while keeping a record of who owns what without requiring this antiquated legal system?

05:34:55 trinque: read the logs, guy.

05:35:16 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: thing is, you gotta contend with the fact that to many folks, 'copyright' ~means~ britney and microshit

05:48:28 mircea_popescu: in any case, there's no rescuing the poor (and it's a morally dubious proposition to even try). let instead those of the poor that are there undeservedly claw their way out. over many generations of belaboured effort, ideally.

13:51:59 mircea_popescu: chetty : http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=09-08-2015#1231874 here is your argument, in all its hideous nude glory. and it goes like so :

13:51:59 assbot: Logged on 09-08-2015 05:26:46; mircea_popescu: apropos of nothing : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rotherham_child_sexual_exploitation_scandal

13:52:32 mircea_popescu: some people, for reasons nobody really grasps in spite of trying for millenia (yes, it's a thing since forever) and in spite of having maybe some decent theories, want to fuck twelve year olds.

13:53:32 mircea_popescu: the white people who want this generally sit around the internet "being cypherpunks" and exchanging... depictions of the act. and often enough being "caught" and "prosecuted", on the very untenable rationale that their engagement in the victimless "crime" of exchanging bits somehow promotes and empowers the actual people doing the actual crime of you know, raping preteens.

13:54:15 mircea_popescu: we don't really know what the paki people who want this do, chiefly because we don't want to. but if we do : in pakistan, they go right the fuck ahead and rape the lot. and in rotherdam, england, they do the exact same.

13:55:13 mircea_popescu: this is the whole thing. what'd you tell a guy who wants to rape twelve year olds ? that it's bad ? he did not ask you that. and you can tell him to you know, wait around on social media untill the cute teenie across the street douses herself in gasoline and invites him over.

13:56:18 mircea_popescu: the alternative, where he texts a chick "hey, we got our sister, we're torturing her, come join" just as the chick in question was giving testimony to the supposed government of the uk - a more illegitimate contrivance never having been known to man, incidentally, they have all the legitimacy to govern kim jong il's favourite dog does.

13:56:21 mircea_popescu: and she does. SHE DOES.

13:56:59 mircea_popescu: offered the simple choice of A. stick with the alleged representatives of the schmucks that trade pictures of your rape and jack off in "online anonymity" and joining the raping party, she chooses to join the raping party.

13:57:38 mircea_popescu: that's the discussion. there is not now, nor was ever, nor will ever be invented a manner, stratagem or device to circumvent activity, or to make the passive on par with the active.

14:03:46 mircea_popescu: the entire fancy with western society and emancipation and freedom and have you rests on the reserve, no matter how muted, that "it's either this or we rape you". it needs to sit there like the nuclear option needs to sit on the table, for once it goes away, twelve fucking year olds choose, of their own fucking free will, to join the pakis for an all night / all weekend / all the years to come anal stretching, caned bu

14:03:46 mircea_popescu: ttocks and generally bloodied existence. that's how her choice plays out, and in her age and in her anonimity i believe she stands representative.

14:04:31 mircea_popescu: meanwhile, the fucking ~times~ has to do its own investigation because the reps of the crown are completely lost in their pipe dreams to the point they're covering themselves in the mud of publicly ridicule eagery and with both hands.

14:04:53 mircea_popescu: the fucking township in question has to pay independent experts to come and inquire, because it's fucking 1600 iowa over there in rotherdam.

14:05:08 mircea_popescu: and the sheriff never made it yet to the territory.

14:09:40 mircea_popescu: seems odd. if you want it, that legitimacy and that position, boys and girls, this is what you do. and that you don't do it is why people, such as myself, mostly point and laugh at your untenable pretenses of "regulating" bitcoin or online whatever.

14:11:07 mircea_popescu: i'm sure "the commerce clause" allows one to invade and try rotherdam just as well as it allows one to put the silkroad derp in prison and try miloshevich. why the fuck not, after all.

14:20:48 mircea_popescu: and in all this rests a lesson for practical everyday use, too. if you are actually man enough to let your girl know you'll beat the shit out of her if need be, which you generally won't even need to do after an initial stage of infantile testing of the theory as proposed, she'll be the most loving, loyal and internally happy woman that she could ever be.

14:20:49 mircea_popescu: whereas if you do not, she ~might~, maybe, manage to maintain superior brain function control over the rest of herself, and be some sort of a first approximation of the above. maybe. or maybe she won't, and go seek to be assuaged in the arms of other men, more inclined to provide the need - for it is a need. the surogates may work or not, but generally dont, and you'll know about it because if she thinks you're enough

15:25:46 mircea_popescu: that's the thing. why we still have hemophilia in spite of it not being desirable : dominant genes manifest by themselves, and thus you can't have unharmed carriers, and thus they die out under pressure.

15:26:02 mircea_popescu: recessive genes do not manifest by themselves, thus you can have unaffected carriers. thus they never die out.

16:52:01 mircea_popescu: i'm sure they'll make you whole, but if they don't you certainly can get a lawyer and sue them personally and u of maryland for joint and serveral liability.

16:52:13 mircea_popescu: and settlements for something like that start at six digits.

16:59:52 shinohai: Hopefully they dumped at $3 kek

17:04:15 asciilifeform: (this is their season)

17:04:20 mircea_popescu: not quite as fresh as a few years ago, and so on and on.

17:04:37 asciilifeform: on the contrary, they are running out of places to put'em

17:04:55 mircea_popescu: this usually connotes stale.

17:06:35 asciilifeform: and i saw a curio that mircea_popescu might appreciate. the largest textbook shop was demolished and replaced with a kind of 'convenience store'. i went in, and saw that approximately 1/3 of the floor space was for menstrual products; a third - for condoms; and most of a third - for gurl phashion paraphernalia. (the small change remaining - iPnohe cabling, etc.)

17:06:58 asciilifeform: by last Official count, the uni is 60-65% female.

17:07:19 mircea_popescu: they actually expect to be paid for condoms ?!

17:07:29 mircea_popescu: i thought those were free on campus and still nobody uses them

17:07:35 asciilifeform: complicated

17:07:37 asciilifeform: 1) yes, free

17:07:50 asciilifeform: 2) no one wants to be seen as 'soviet' and using the standard phree ver.

17:08:01 asciilifeform: hence - ten grades of preeemium

17:08:08 mircea_popescu: i don't get this.

17:08:15 mircea_popescu: wouldnt you WANT to be seen as exactly that ?

17:08:42 mircea_popescu: last i heard about a third of the kids pointedly wore army surpluss stuff.

17:08:58 asciilifeform: not here.

17:09:17 asciilifeform: plus the phree usg condoms don't have fruit juices, built-in vibratory devices, and other nonsense

18:52:37 mod6: So Shinohai and I just got done testing my TEST2 bundle with rotor script. We've built successfully on: Gentoo/glibc, Ubuntu 10.04, Debian 6 and Debian 8 :: All x86_64

18:53:44 shinohai: I propose adding that location echo to the script mod6 so as not to cause noob hair-pulling.

18:54:05 mod6: If someone wants to give it a try on x86_64 on a similar linux let me know. I've had to install a few pre-reqs on a totally bare minimum 10.04 like: build-essentials, curl, rsync, and unzip

18:54:20 asciilifeform: neato

18:54:34 mod6: ah shinohai, location echo?

18:54:41 asciilifeform: btw rsync should be abolished when we mod the thing to stop pulling from the net

18:54:49 asciilifeform: ditto curl

18:54:53 mod6: yeah, that's after we freeze everything though right?

18:54:55 asciilifeform: aha

18:54:58 mod6: ok np

18:56:00 mod6: ;;later tell pete_dushenski I have a script for you to try on Debian 7 to build TEST2 with rotor. You might need to install a few minor pre-reqs. I can hold your hand if required for that part. Let me know when you have some time.

18:56:00 gribble: The operation succeeded.

18:56:52 mod6: asciilifeform: only main change I had to make other than pulling down the TEST2 bundle itself was to add this: sed -i 's/bitcoin\/bitcoin\/src/bitcoin\/src/' rotor.sh

18:57:50 asciilifeform: this suggests that the dir structure was not created correctly

18:57:53 asciilifeform: in this test

18:58:27 mod6: no, mine's fine.

20:40:05 punkman: if you notice, only a few of the things need explicit UTF8 support there

20:40:55 asciilifeform: one notable attempt at 'fits in book but usable' was minix. a failed attempt.

20:41:02 asciilifeform: compare minix2 to minix3

20:41:18 asciilifeform: the latter runs on actual hardware which you may be able to find - but NO LONGER FITS IN BOOK

20:41:29 asciilifeform: it turned into a pathetically shabby imitation linux

20:41:56 asciilifeform: and before mircea_popescu chimes in and says 'find old hardware', let's see him booting from a floppy

20:42:16 asciilifeform: and running blockchain on an elephantine heap of floppies swapped in and out by hand.

20:42:21 asciilifeform: at ~10kB/s.

20:42:23 shinohai: LOL

20:42:42 *: shinohai inserts disk 4,560

20:42:56 asciilifeform: if you want to play 'rogue', you can use whatever iron you found in old university dumpster, yes

20:43:06 asciilifeform: but if you want to use bitcoin - suddenly there are all kinds of hard constraints

20:43:17 shinohai: Or, I could fire up the trs-80 and attempt to fit it all on cassette tape/

20:43:27 asciilifeform: gotta support modern disks, and modern bus, and ram, and... and.

20:44:28 asciilifeform: and yes, one can turn bitcoind into a kernel of sorts. (you cannot use a linux kernel as a base for this. to understand why, read src for kmalloc, etc.)

20:44:39 asciilifeform: but this does not magick away the problem of ~on what to develop~.

20:45:30 asciilifeform: have fun verifying blocks in <10M on that trs.

20:46:08 asciilifeform: (will a typical tx, much less block, even fit in the 64k address space ?)

20:46:49 asciilifeform: and sure, go and scoop ocean out with a thimble. but doing it ~quickly~ is another matter.

21:02:07 trinque: anyhow, cool that you're diving into that

21:03:14 williamdunne: Yeah, seems pretty good so far. Only bummer is that all of the libraries I can take advantage of elsewhere don't really exist, and if they do they are entirely undocumented

23:11:38 asciilifeform: the whole experiment in bringing back emperors was a flop

23:11:51 mircea_popescu: so it was.

23:11:53 asciilifeform: a kind of legitimacy-washing of unrelated structures

23:12:37 asciilifeform: sorta like if somebody took moldbug's suggestion of digging up and reinstating the stewart monarchy somehow

23:12:53 mircea_popescu: rank nonsense. you can't "be made" a king.
