13:17:45 funkenstein_: but if not I know some people whose phones will be ringing off the hook despite the jump in prices

13:20:23 funkenstein_: re: Jim Carrey, even a slight progression down the path of knowledge or a momentary glimpse of self reflection is totally a surprise in any celebrity innit

13:23:08 funkenstein_: ok he's not terence or alan but at least he's saying something different

18:13:48 kanzure: (maybe. it's unclear whether i was the first case.))

18:15:43 kanzure: anyway, she should use her $400k of bitcoin funding to go and distribute full mirrors of her data.

18:16:01 kanzure: it would be more productive than writing another 10,000 lines of php

18:16:52 funkenstein_: how would that work?
