00:02:55 asciilifeform: ;;later tell pete_dushenski http://www.contravex.com/2015/11/10/the-danger-of-unchecked-assumptions-or-the-surprising-depths-of-inequality/#comment-34704

00:02:56 assbot: The danger of unchecked assumptions, or the surprising depths of inequality. | Contravex: A blog by Pete Dushenski ... ( http://bit.ly/1Hw9JXz )

00:02:56 gribble: The operation succeeded.

00:03:26 punkman: Buterin doesn't get to keep 44k btc

00:03:39 asciilifeform: got private key ? could keep if he likes.

00:03:45 asciilifeform: or what, coke machine ?

00:03:55 punkman: he must spent it on stupid shit

00:03:59 asciilifeform: 'must' how ?

00:04:12 asciilifeform: could move it to a fresh addr and vanish tomorrow.

00:04:15 asciilifeform: like the others.

00:04:24 punkman: he already had a chance to do that

00:04:43 punkman: or maybe never had the keys

00:04:49 asciilifeform: or.

00:05:37 asciilifeform: it's a very convenient rationalization

00:05:57 asciilifeform: when an idiot has xxxxx btc, 'oh but he couldn't possibly have the keyz'

00:06:05 asciilifeform: why the everliving fuck not.

00:06:15 asciilifeform: and SOMEBODY has the keys.

00:06:49 asciilifeform: what now, all of these 'somebodies' are gurus worthy of submission and imitation ?

00:06:50 punkman: somebody has, and they will spend it on eth "development", "conferences", etc

00:07:00 asciilifeform: ergo not so smart.

00:07:09 punkman: whoever keeps it, is smart

00:07:11 BingoBoingo: Carl Mark Force Model IV has the keys

00:07:23 asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: iirc the moron sold it all

00:07:37 asciilifeform: so he'd be a point in support of pete_dushenski's hypothesis

00:07:38 shinohai: http://thenextweb.com/gadgets/2015/11/10/pillow-talk-connects-distant-lovers-as-they-drift-to-sleep/ <<< sadly, people will pay to fund shit like this

00:07:39 assbot: Pillow Talk connects distant lovers as they drift to sleep ... ( http://bit.ly/1O2tB4k )

00:07:48 BingoBoingo: There's more of that idiot's production

00:07:55 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform but this is the problem of the bloody book. in "removing the requirement for a wot" it creates more problems than it resolves

00:07:58 mircea_popescu: admitting it resolves any.

00:08:11 asciilifeform: how does it remove ?

00:08:40 mircea_popescu: and NO, idiots are not able to propagate anything without the printing press. which is why prior to it there were 5000 different idiocies summing to 0 and ever since tyhen we've been deluged in organised imbecillity.

00:09:23 asciilifeform: tora/koran/et al worked fine without press.

00:09:28 mircea_popescu: and yes, stupidity is a technology like any other.

00:09:33 asciilifeform: schmucks sat with goose pen.

00:11:32 asciilifeform: anyway, i need not-having-knuth (or table of motherfucking permeattivity constants, or landau, or,or,or,x10,000) like i need to have my arms and legs and cock chopped.

00:11:38 asciilifeform: i don't see this argument going anywhere.

00:12:08 mircea_popescu: i personally read mazdak as a http://fraudsters.com/2012/in-general-evreii-trec-drept-oameni-destepti/#selection-45.0-47.0

00:12:09 assbot: In general evreii trec drept oameni destepti, on fraudsters - A blog by Mircea Popescu. ... ( http://bit.ly/1O2tSEc )

00:12:35 mircea_popescu: the idea that the torah is a book is a peculiar one.

00:12:38 mircea_popescu: it's a scroll.

00:12:45 mircea_popescu: scrolls scan just fine.

00:12:52 asciilifeform: book in general sense.

00:12:59 mircea_popescu: there IS NOT SUCH A GENERAL SENSE

00:13:05 asciilifeform: https://pbs.twimg.com/media/CTCgl3WUAAAXKjv.jpg:large (via vexual.) seems like they finally killed esp8266.

00:13:06 assbot: ... ( http://bit.ly/1O2tXaU )

00:13:06 mircea_popescu: "usg in the general sense"

00:13:41 mircea_popescu: books mean a very specific PERVERSION of culture ; much like usg is a very specific perversion of governance.

00:13:49 asciilifeform: 'esp32' !!111!111 now with all the bullshit you enjoyed not having in the original!

00:14:14 mircea_popescu: heh.

00:14:27 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i'm approximately as interested in inhabiting a world without landau as you are in inhabiting world without cunt.

00:15:11 mircea_popescu: so keep it.

00:15:30 asciilifeform: that's kinda what the thread was about

00:15:43 asciilifeform: but then we get 'but it isn't in the logz, ergo useless'

00:15:59 mircea_popescu: it is in the log via you. is it ?

00:16:06 asciilifeform: not wholesale ...

00:16:12 mircea_popescu: aha so then.

00:16:32 asciilifeform: 'Besides integrating hardware accelerators for AES and SSL....'

00:16:38 mircea_popescu: loller.

00:16:41 asciilifeform: 'a rich peripheral interface with DMA.....'

00:16:46 mircea_popescu: ahahaha

00:16:47 asciilifeform: oh for fux sake

00:16:57 *: mircea_popescu blames books.

00:16:59 asciilifeform: RIP esp8266

00:17:01 asciilifeform: we hardly knewya

00:17:19 asciilifeform: now i gotta wait for mircea_popescu to teach me to make replacement for it out of horses

00:17:55 mircea_popescu: "e simplu : pune coaiele pe nicolava".

00:17:58 mircea_popescu: dja know the joke ?

00:18:08 asciilifeform: nein

00:18:59 mircea_popescu: arab guy through the desert

00:19:03 mircea_popescu: camel is all slow and shit.

00:19:12 mircea_popescu: sees a camel soup-up and service shop. goes in

00:19:20 mircea_popescu: "do you make camels go faster ?" "aha"

00:19:27 mircea_popescu: "make this one go faster then!"

00:19:31 mircea_popescu: "put its ballsac on the anvil"

00:19:52 mircea_popescu: the guy does, the mechanic hammers it one solidly, the camel takes off doing something between scared hare and arrow in flight

00:20:04 mircea_popescu: "that's nice but... i'm still here. how do i catch it now ?"

00:20:11 mircea_popescu: "put ballsac on anvil."

00:20:18 trinque: lol!

00:23:17 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform anyway, the thread was about you saying how nobody should have to reprocess books ; and i made the point that but for the historical accident, one wouldn't even have to process them in the first place.

00:23:22 mircea_popescu: it was meant as a soothing observation.

00:24:00 BingoBoingo: How does someone sooth a man with such clear and limited emotional registers?

01:21:51 gabriel_laddel: ty. Anyways, nothing?

01:22:04 gabriel_laddel: ben_vulpes: howdy.

01:27:54 ben_vulpes: hola

01:35:27 *: asciilifeform observed an interesting effect. have two very similar pairs of cheapo headphones, but one emits strange scratchy sounds, other does not. then realized that it is the ~insulation on the cord~ that was at fault

01:35:46 asciilifeform: one set had cloth fiber, to 'look retro' presumably

01:36:04 asciilifeform: and it scratched on shirt, chair, etc. and vibration - propagates

01:36:23 asciilifeform: the other, with the more ordinary smooth insulation does no such thing.

01:37:20 punkman: sounds like the wire is damaged, not the insulation

01:37:50 asciilifeform: brand new.

01:37:55 kakobrekla: yeah cable microphonics are annoying as fuck.

01:37:59 asciilifeform: nono

01:38:04 asciilifeform: this is WITHOUT ANY CURRENT

01:38:10 asciilifeform: as in, 100% mechanical

01:38:16 kakobrekla: yeah.

01:38:52 kakobrekla: seen that more that id wish to admit.

01:39:00 kakobrekla: than*

01:39:17 punkman: without current, like cans and string?

01:39:24 asciilifeform: aha

01:39:26 asciilifeform: precisely

01:39:29 punkman: oic

01:39:41 punkman: never seen this

01:40:35 kakobrekla: prolly most headphones do this.

01:40:57 asciilifeform: mno

01:41:01 asciilifeform: only this set with the cloth cable.

01:41:14 kakobrekla: most headphones have shitty cable.

01:41:26 asciilifeform: not in this particular way.

01:41:52 kakobrekla: superlux do this as well.

01:42:33 kakobrekla: put them on, unplugged, move the cable, hear noise.

01:43:46 asciilifeform: never before seen this.

01:43:55 kakobrekla: just lucky i guess.

01:44:09 asciilifeform: i've been through perhaps a hundred disposable sets

01:44:12 asciilifeform: and not one did this.

01:44:25 kakobrekla: very lucky.

01:44:29 asciilifeform: l0l

01:46:20 punkman: question is, does nobody test the things before making a full factory run

01:46:28 asciilifeform: turns out not

01:46:37 asciilifeform: OR, more interestingly, yes, and it doesn't matter

01:46:42 asciilifeform: they laugh all the way to the bank

01:47:19 asciilifeform: the cloth on the cable is a classic 'fuffle'

01:47:36 asciilifeform: built to 'spray on' the appearance of quality where none exists

01:47:52 asciilifeform: sorta like those weights that have - likewise - turned up in certain heaphones

01:48:31 asciilifeform: which are in no actual way distinct in purpose or in effect from the weights found in fraudulent chinese hard disks

01:48:35 punkman: so you think it has big magnets?

21:01:33 whaack: hey again, I've been working on my "IRC Yeshiva" and been patiently lurking. I wanted to let you know you have another programmer pretty much at your disposal should you need one.

21:02:14 ben_vulpes: good morning whaack

21:02:33 ben_vulpes: have you taken mod6 or asciilifeform's 'v' for a spin yet?

21:02:54 ben_vulpes: !up ascii_field

21:02:55 whaack: I've looked at it, and I saw in the comments it needed testing so I figured maybe that's where I could start.

21:03:55 ben_vulpes: if you're feeling adventurous you could try installing gabriel_laddel's masamune and then scream into the log about gentoo quest

21:10:46 mircea_popescu: lovely kakobrekla

21:11:26 mircea_popescu: whaack cool, so pick something to do!

21:11:55 mircea_popescu: perhaps try and help mod6, he's doing a ton of different things, maybe he has time later today/this week to give out discrete tasks

21:24:15 ascii_field: rumour being, apparently, that the somewhat odd move of kicking out reporters is explained by there having been present 'komyoooonity organizers' from ferguson et al

21:24:51 analmaster: whoa

21:24:51 analmaster: rofl

21:24:54 analmaster: how is that a job

21:24:54 mircea_popescu: ascii_field the move of kicking out the media is not odd in the slightest.

21:25:03 ascii_field: odd for 'protest'

21:25:10 mircea_popescu: odd for dumbprotest ?

21:25:22 ascii_field: for the trad american sort aha

21:25:26 mircea_popescu: ima just quote tlp, because he has a very nice distillation of the problem :

21:26:30 mircea_popescu: If you hold a protest and you aren't throwing rocks it will fail. I'm not telling you to throw rocks, I'm explaining why your march won't work.

21:26:30 mircea_popescu: The reason "peaceful protests" don't work anymore is because now the protests are slower than the media coverage. When they threw the tea in Boston Harbor it was urgent, immediate, and by the time the press could interpret it it had already been digested by the public. But now even before the protest reaches critical mass the media, whose agents outnumber the protestors 100 to 1, has packaged and produced it, like

21:26:30 mircea_popescu: a reality show, and by the time Naomi Klein got there I had already been told to expect someone like her. Do you see? She had already appeared before she got there. Yes, I can take pride in thinking for myself but if I'm going to be honest, all I'm doing is reacting to what I'm told

21:27:02 mircea_popescu: the rules for successful are very simple : a) throw rocks ; b) no media.

21:28:06 mircea_popescu: obviously you can't make "the media" aka usg agitprop machine unhave all the vans and ex-sorority chicks and whatnot. so the only practical solution when you can't prevent them acting on their options is to limit their options to one.

21:28:16 mircea_popescu: throw rocks at the media, force them to pick the "evil people" narrative.

21:28:50 ascii_field: usg is on both sides of this chessboard

21:29:08 mircea_popescu: like soviet union was on both sides of THAT chessboard.

21:29:27 mircea_popescu: yes, they're all soviets. slightly hungry pissed off low level grunt soviets vs fatcat libertard soviets.

21:29:36 mircea_popescu: this happens to be good for bitcoin is all.

21:30:02 analmaster: soviet libtards exist?

21:30:06 analmaster: i thought they just throw them off the cliff

21:30:19 ascii_field: analmaster is posting from 1978

21:30:21 mircea_popescu: ascii_field understand : if the "huge hedge fund masquerading as church" engine gripes, the democrat party will have to be restructured.

21:32:04 mircea_popescu: and because of the communication problem (see http://fraudsters.com/2014/the-problem-of-ideal-social-systems-reprint/ ) they won't be able to do it smoothly.
