00:06:02 assbot: Logged on 10-03-2016 23:09:57; mircea_popescu: so importantly - understand that it's in no sense a matter of 'stop being you, be somebody else'. anyone else would confront the same exact problem,, which is to say that this is not able to stand on its own. would work superbly as an add-on product of a company offering this kinbd of thing that can x-sell it.

00:06:37 *: asciilifeform is not ~complete~ idiot

00:08:46 pete_dushenski: ;;ticker

00:08:59 assbot: Logged on 10-03-2016 23:10:07; mircea_popescu: but otherwise, it's not workable, and it wouldn't be workable for trump.

00:09:13 asciilifeform: but usg would not sign off on it.

00:10:10 asciilifeform: consider iran

00:10:16 asciilifeform: siemens sold them stuxnet-os successfully.

00:10:20 asciilifeform: because...???

00:10:34 asciilifeform: because NO ONE GIVES HALF A FUCK

00:10:39 pete_dushenski: or non datur ?

00:10:56 asciilifeform: no one wants to LIVE badly enough

00:10:58 asciilifeform: to make use of sanity.

00:11:42 pete_dushenski: or they want to live plenty and don't seem to be ~sufficiently~ dying on own petard for using winbloze.

00:11:53 asciilifeform: which is why it is important to ~help them die~.

00:12:02 pete_dushenski: god's work

00:29:29 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform> no one wants to LIVE badly enough << sadly, this is ~true.

00:29:46 mircea_popescu: nobody is used to the idea that fuck up and it's your ass. not anymore. because hey, "that's no way to live".

00:29:49 mircea_popescu: well... neither is this.

00:41:23 thestringpuller: mircea_popescu: "only a cynical man would call what these people have lives...this is not how man was supposed to live."

00:43:38 pete_dushenski: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=10-03-2016#1429640 << fwiw i even enjoy giving pitches in person

00:43:38 assbot: Logged on 10-03-2016 22:42:50; *: BingoBoingo starting to think this actually kinda sounds like a pete_dushenski problem

00:48:04 mircea_popescu: " 1]To whomever is now going to say "it's server fault, deedbot should output GPG signed material with proper mimetype like application/pgp-signature". I can only recommend frontal lobotomy by robot that fetches its instructions with wget." << i lolled.

00:49:29 pete_dushenski: with wet floor pylons ??

00:49:48 mircea_popescu: lol

00:50:00 mircea_popescu: i think the "slippery when wet" thing is much needed instruction for otaku.

00:50:14 pete_dushenski: and bukkake

00:50:25 mircea_popescu: isn't that "wet when slippery" ?

00:51:36 *: pete_dushenski hasn't tried. doesn't know

00:58:16 pete_dushenski: http://www.nytimes.com/2016/03/13/travel/venice-italy-jewish-ghetto.html << speaking of all things tmsr

01:04:39 asciilifeform: jp folktale.

01:09:05 pete_dushenski: ya, just sayin'

01:09:59 asciilifeform: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=11-03-2016#1429778 << what even is happening in the pic

01:10:46 asciilifeform: also i notice that jp, like ar, does not manufacture ugly chix in any appreciable qty. at all.

01:11:42 pete_dushenski: letting out of doors and manufacturing are different beasts

01:13:16 asciilifeform: they might feed the ugly chix to koi

01:13:35 asciilifeform: but i will point out that there are not enough koi, or even sharks, on the planet3, to feed the ugly anglo chix to.

01:13:41 asciilifeform: just too big of a job.

01:14:29 pete_dushenski: jp just figured out 'organic food' centuries ago. it's a newer concept to anglos.

01:15:25 asciilifeform: afaik they never invented eating shit to begin with.

01:15:28 asciilifeform: most folks didn't.

01:15:35 asciilifeform: until americans 'helped'.

01:15:48 asciilifeform: starvation was good enough for people-who-had-no-food.

01:16:19 asciilifeform: (yes cn ate swallow nests, crickets, etc. and sure. but modern mass poisoning ~requires~ industry.)

01:16:21 pete_dushenski: pre-americans also had insufficient chemistry

01:17:21 asciilifeform: holy FUCK kakobrekla i have 100% 'silentwings' fans, NEW CASE, WITH ACOUSTIC FOAM, and STILL get resonances.

01:17:25 asciilifeform: wtf, what gives.

01:17:33 asciilifeform: it it the motherfucking disks ?!!

01:17:47 pete_dushenski: shoulda bought silentwings case too

01:17:49 asciilifeform: i threw out 2, replaced with ssd for the cost of their weight in plutonium, i suppose now have to do other 2 ?!!

01:17:58 *: asciilifeform grimaces

01:18:12 kakobrekla: hm


01:18:21 kakobrekla: im curious, which case is it?

01:18:23 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 9700 @ 0.00052284 = 5.0715 BTC [-]

01:18:23 asciilifeform: 3 days now

01:19:03 asciilifeform: kakobrekla: 'Thermaltake Suppressor F-51'

01:19:20 asciilifeform: steel, with silencing foam on 4 sides.

01:19:23 kakobrekla: im spinning rust free - i have a few 'hp microservers' for that running in another room

01:19:53 asciilifeform: i have the fucker standing on fist-sized sorbothane legs, too

01:19:56 asciilifeform: doesn't help.

01:20:02 pete_dushenski: http://images.anandtech.com/doci/9364/IMG_2708_678x452.jpg << cases in question

01:20:03 assbot: ... ( http://bit.ly/1TQlcqi )

01:20:16 asciilifeform: pete_dushenski: ick

01:20:19 asciilifeform: WTF with the glass, srsly

01:20:25 asciilifeform: that should be an inch thick foam.

01:20:31 pete_dushenski: gurls love it

01:20:34 asciilifeform: ???

01:21:20 pete_dushenski: "check out my sweet machine babe. you can see INSIDE" "omg that's hot [drops pants, bends over]"

01:21:30 kakobrekla: for case i use 'fractal design r4' which looks surprisingly similar to your pick

01:21:38 pete_dushenski: this is how i imagine thinking works in reddit heads, at least

01:21:58 asciilifeform: pete_dushenski: i am not a shrink, cannot catalogue every possible delusion

01:22:35 asciilifeform: kakobrekla: this thing had noise dampeners and intake filters (bottom and front)

01:22:46 kakobrekla: yes same here

01:23:02 asciilifeform: the hdd fittings are, fucktardedly, plastic tho.

01:23:10 asciilifeform: i suppose everyone is expected to ssd now.

01:23:18 asciilifeform: old case had steel brackets with rubber grommets.

01:23:19 *: nubbins` has cheapest fractal design case

01:23:23 kakobrekla: mine are rubberized

01:23:25 asciilifeform: nubbins`: which ?

01:23:30 nubbins`: core 1000

01:23:35 nubbins`: ~$50

01:23:50 asciilifeform: http://www.fractal-design.com/home/product/cases/core-series/core-1000-usb-30 << it ?

01:23:51 assbot: Fractal Design ... ( http://bit.ly/1TQlHk6 )

01:23:55 nubbins`: yep

01:23:56 nubbins`: rubber hdd groms

01:24:19 asciilifeform: has dampeners ?

01:24:42 asciilifeform: i really got the 'thermaltake' on account of the bottom-mount ps

01:24:44 nubbins`: nah, just spied the brand & blurted

01:24:47 kakobrekla: http://www.fractal-design.com/home/product/cases/define-series/define-r4-black-pearl

01:24:49 assbot: Fractal Design ... ( http://bit.ly/1TQlLR1 )

01:24:53 asciilifeform: (hole, that is. bought ps elsewhere, fanless)

01:24:54 kakobrekla: pretty sure that one is mine

01:25:04 nubbins`: vertical mount hdd thing kinda sucks

01:25:06 kakobrekla: the fan that comes with it is useless though.

01:25:11 nubbins`: given that i don't have a turkey-sized gpu

01:25:31 asciilifeform: i would love to buy a case that is just 200kg of copper hedgehog.

01:25:45 asciilifeform: fuck fans.

01:25:48 nubbins`: copper bucket full of thermal paste

01:26:02 asciilifeform: nubbins`: see the immersion cooling thread, physics does not cooperate

01:26:09 asciilifeform: (unless the machine is DESIGNED for it from day 1.)

01:26:11 asciilifeform: like cray was.

01:26:40 *: nubbins` used to work at gov research institute in ottawa, massive cray in lunchroom behind glass doors

01:26:43 asciilifeform: immersion adds parasitic capacitance to pcb traces.

01:27:04 asciilifeform: nubbins`: surely not the immersive cray ?

01:27:04 nubbins`: yeah, as soon as i said, i figured that much muck wouldn't fly

01:27:05 asciilifeform: (cray-2)

01:27:08 nubbins`: asciilifeform nah

01:27:20 nubbins`: would recognize from a picture, but can't recall any details

01:27:26 asciilifeform: prolly one of the shams they made after cray died

01:27:28 nubbins`: only that obtaining time on it was highly coveted

01:27:29 asciilifeform: with intel cpus.

01:27:40 nubbins`: this woulda been early 2000s

01:27:47 kakobrekla: anyway, easy to cut power to hdd to see if that is the bugger

01:27:49 asciilifeform: then - crud, yes

01:27:50 nubbins`: long after glory

01:28:12 asciilifeform: kakobrekla: can't do this when it spins, will rape the raid

01:28:19 nubbins`: afaik cray never really recovered from getting chip supply choked early on

01:28:19 kakobrekla: i dont think i get much resonances

01:28:25 asciilifeform: kakobrekla: it comes and goes.

01:28:38 asciilifeform: nubbins`: it did not recover from cray being dead.

01:28:42 asciilifeform: tends to be how it goes.

01:28:42 kakobrekla: but then again i spin fans at 200 rpm or less

01:28:56 pete_dushenski: ;;seen polarbeard

01:28:57 gribble: polarbeard was last seen in #bitcoin-assets 2 weeks, 4 days, 2 hours, 47 minutes, and 44 seconds ago: <polarbeard> cpp is full of it

01:29:01 asciilifeform: kakobrekla: i suspect that it is the heatsinks

01:29:08 asciilifeform: they are loosely-coupled and vibrate.

01:29:16 asciilifeform: (2 cpu board.)

01:29:42 asciilifeform: pete_dushenski: prolly he decided that we're a buncha nutters.

01:29:54 asciilifeform: after the 'regrind' thread.

01:29:55 pete_dushenski: this was news ?

01:30:01 nubbins`: ^

01:30:06 asciilifeform: news to ~him~

01:30:10 nubbins`: ...^

01:30:12 asciilifeform: that he'd have to write every patch N times.

01:30:15 kakobrekla: for heatsinks i use http://noctua.at/en/products/cpu-cooler-retail/nh-d14 (ofc not with default fans)

01:30:17 assbot: NH-D14 ... ( http://bit.ly/1MartVs )

01:30:20 asciilifeform: fella couldn't take it.

01:30:27 pete_dushenski: this is why kids should read logs for 6 months before talking

01:30:36 asciilifeform: kakobrekla: this physically won't fit.

01:30:44 asciilifeform: (on my board)

01:30:47 asciilifeform: again, 2 cpu

01:30:47 kakobrekla: ah

01:30:51 kakobrekla: aha

01:31:05 kakobrekla: theres plenty of models

01:31:15 asciilifeform: no socket F tho.

01:31:19 nubbins`: sous-vide computing

01:31:27 pete_dushenski: heh

01:31:28 asciilifeform: it is interesting, i searched for MONTHS to find a new set of socket F hs, found NONE

01:31:35 asciilifeform: had to WASH my old ones.

01:31:35 pete_dushenski: 60c max

01:31:46 asciilifeform: ~decade of dirt.

01:31:59 asciilifeform: vacuuming and even air compressor, turns out, does not really clean the inside.

01:32:03 asciilifeform: it builds up.

01:32:27 kakobrekla: "Thermalright HR-01 X" ?

01:32:37 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 5100 @ 0.00052461 = 2.6755 BTC [+] {2}

01:33:14 asciilifeform: where do you see AMD F in these ?

01:33:53 asciilifeform: i see AM2/AM3 and intel only.

01:34:08 asciilifeform: or, hm, there was adapter.

01:34:13 asciilifeform: sold out eons ago, looks like.

01:34:34 asciilifeform: but that this is actually very similar shape to what i had before.

01:34:45 asciilifeform: looks a tiny bit more cleanable.

01:35:01 kakobrekla: mebbe something liek http://imagehost.losias.net/images/U2y3F.jpg

01:35:04 assbot: ... ( http://bit.ly/1TQn0iY )

01:35:07 asciilifeform: substantially top-heavy though

01:35:14 asciilifeform: will vibrate even moar than mine !

01:35:29 asciilifeform: heat sink should not be top-heavy!1111

01:35:48 asciilifeform: kakobrekla: i have the dimms b/w the sockets, so this might not fly.

01:35:50 kakobrekla: and the world should not be round, yet ...

01:35:55 asciilifeform: l0l

01:36:17 asciilifeform: anyway these look quite like mine, but stood on end.

01:36:26 kakobrekla: http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Dell-PowerEdge-6950-AMD-Opteron-Socket-F-CPU-Heatsink-Y9115-/251322845713

01:36:43 asciilifeform: the dell hs need dell mobo holes!

01:36:49 asciilifeform: notice no bracket !111

01:36:54 kakobrekla: fuck do i know what you have

01:36:58 asciilifeform: tyan.

01:36:59 asciilifeform: forever.

01:37:07 kakobrekla: anyway this ends google-fu :)

01:37:12 asciilifeform: aha, extinct!

01:37:24 asciilifeform: reminds me, i gotta get a few moare of those same tyans

01:37:27 asciilifeform: for if this one ever melts.

01:37:44 asciilifeform: (if it blows a filter cap i can replace cap, dead northbridge - no)

01:37:48 kakobrekla: i believe i managed to acquire even more extintier things

01:38:05 asciilifeform: next set of hedgehogs , i expect to machine myself.

01:38:07 asciilifeform: from ingots.

01:38:12 asciilifeform: one day.

01:38:36 kakobrekla: however it took time and luck.

01:38:53 asciilifeform: new hs is not top priority atm for me.

01:38:59 asciilifeform: after all, old ones are clean now.

01:39:28 kakobrekla: i could get a custom adapter machined here if id be in such position prolly

01:40:02 asciilifeform: what i really want is just a 1m long heat pipe from each cpu

01:40:06 asciilifeform: to a 200kg copper hog.

01:40:19 asciilifeform: 'if wishes were horses..' (tm)

01:40:39 asciilifeform: pc oughta look like a mains transformer

01:40:42 asciilifeform: the kind on a pole.

01:41:00 asciilifeform: zalman co. made this for a brief spell a decade ago, it did not sell, cost $3k

01:41:25 asciilifeform: turns out there's ~no market for well-made quiet thing, whodavethunkit

01:42:17 asciilifeform: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/noiseless-computing,741.html << it.

01:42:18 assbot: Noiseless Computing: New Case Innovation From Zalman - Introduction ... ( http://bit.ly/1MasE7i )

01:42:23 kakobrekla: anyway its possible it just takes effort, like i had to buy 50 high end fans to find be-quiet

01:42:43 nubbins`: oddly, my current mobo has user-swappable op-amp for audio output

01:42:59 asciilifeform: nubbins`: i've even seen ones with tube amp !

01:43:04 asciilifeform: yes, on the mobo.

01:43:06 kakobrekla: nubbins` yet still garbage

01:43:14 nubbins`: lel.

01:43:22 asciilifeform: kakobrekla: as far as im concerned if it had ONE moving part, it is rubbish.

01:43:25 asciilifeform: i don't care where.

01:43:35 nubbins`: kakobrekla i'd imagine a proper op-amp from the start would be cheaper than adding the socket

01:43:50 asciilifeform: nubbins`: presumably it is for folks who habitually blow the amp

01:43:59 nubbins`: lel it is a "gaming" mobo, so...

01:44:07 nubbins`: target market is obv idiots

01:44:40 nubbins`: gold-plated audio connectors! electrically isolated audio section on board w/ LEDs demarcating! zzzzz

01:44:53 kakobrekla: all integrated sound cards are rubbish. ALL of them.

01:45:03 nubbins`: bought because cheap

01:45:11 nubbins`: don't even have speakers hooked up to it

01:45:14 nubbins`: just the piezo

01:45:18 nubbins`: !

01:45:30 kakobrekla: yes, mine is isolated too and yet it still pops when i tested it. (yes have a dedicated card for this)

01:46:58 nubbins`: we have an audiophile!

01:47:02 kakobrekla: audiofool!

01:47:11 *: nubbins` wonders if kako is vinyl collector or "other" type

01:47:41 kakobrekla: i have some records but not a collector

01:48:12 nubbins`: same, maybe buy a half dozen per year

01:48:23 kakobrekla: i havent bought any in years.

01:48:32 nubbins`: lots of newer pressings are pure shit

01:48:44 nubbins`: poor QC, not properly mastered for vinyl, etc

01:48:48 kakobrekla: i only have the old stuff

01:48:49 nubbins`: but it's just a cash cow now

01:48:58 kakobrekla: the new stuff is digitally recorded and then baked to vinyl

01:49:00 BingoBoingo: <asciilifeform> kakobrekla: as far as im concerned if it had ONE moving part, it is rubbish. << Aha, this goes to the power tool dilemma where unless paying out the ass everything is made by TTI in china and it is a competition between which TTI reseller do you trust most to preserve their battery platform. Not directly connected to this utterance of yours, but for some reason this is the one brian in the head clicked the thread t

01:49:00 BingoBoingo: ogether on.

01:49:01 *: pete_dushenski off to old theatre to watch monty python

01:49:09 nubbins`: old records are best, esp. if you have a spin-clean or similar

01:49:28 nubbins`: kakobrekla if you want to hear modern all-analog path, check out a record by Shellac of North America

01:49:56 kakobrekla: nubbins` i havent had a record player connected to my setup for years also

02:54:00 kakobrekla: dont change the argument this has nothing to do with capacitance !

04:33:01 BingoBoingo: AC is not one yet, though I did spread a bunch of BTi this afternoon to get a head start on mosquito control due to the mild winter.

04:33:08 asciilifeform: i have ~24 yrs of stoked hatred for the fuckngswamp

04:33:35 mircea_popescu: wait, you lived there whole lyf ?!

04:33:39 BingoBoingo: get a reciprocating saw and take that hatred out on nature. It will make you feel better

04:33:51 asciilifeform: what nature.

04:34:02 asciilifeform: scarcely anything to saw here.

04:34:14 asciilifeform: shrubs, sickly things.

04:34:26 asciilifeform: soil is red clay.

04:34:30 BingoBoingo: That just means saw feels even more powerful

04:34:58 asciilifeform: i nearly destroyed the chainsaw last time

04:35:03 BingoBoingo: yellow/orange clay here grows giant plants just fine

04:35:11 asciilifeform: it did not like the shrubs.

04:35:42 BingoBoingo: See, this is not a chainsaw job, too much power... it gets confused and tears at self.

04:35:43 cazalla: arvo'

04:35:51 BingoBoingo: arvo' to you too

04:36:08 cazalla: looks more like a shrub BingoBoingo

04:36:47 cazalla: chainsaw wouldn't be sporting though so all good

04:36:59 BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: You just need cheapest 18 volt reciprocating saw made by TTi and branded with whatever battery system pisses you off least + 5 tpi blade. Instant stress relief.

04:37:53 asciilifeform: not much to saw, again

04:38:15 BingoBoingo: cazalla: Well, didn't have much time

04:38:22 BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: But the shrubs!?

04:38:24 asciilifeform: and mosquitoes eat you alive.

04:38:43 cazalla: how about a hand axe? got that wrist strength, was an ezmode job for the few trees around here i axed down

04:39:08 BingoBoingo: BTi werkz for mosquitoes. Not the adults, but generally can be guerilla applied sufficient radius to protect own yard.

04:39:30 BingoBoingo: cazalla: Neighbor's fence on one side. My shed on the other. No room to swing.

04:54:43 BingoBoingo: We had a very mild winter so no die back on the rosebushes and the spring bulb have had leaves up testing the weather since late december

04:55:53 cazalla: down under summer was cooler than usually, at least it felt that way, no 3-4 day heat waves anyway so garden did well
