01:22:34 assbot: Treason of the Intellectuals, Volume 3 ... ( http://bit.ly/1Ed2e2r )

01:22:36 decimation: he is now on a krazy korner railing against usg

01:22:53 decimation: yet he has given his life and his own son in service of usg, and accomplished nothing

01:23:10 decimation: reminds me of that tlp piece about hating the system so much you want it to like you

01:23:21 asciilifeform: and of course, the obligatory lenin, 'intellectual is not his nation's head, but its arse'

01:23:29 asciilifeform: (TM)

01:23:36 mircea_popescu: ahaha treason of the intellectuals verbiage, srlsy ?!

01:23:38 decimation: heh yeah that is related

01:23:45 mircea_popescu: dude, la revolucion is so fucking banal. always the same moves.

01:25:02 mircea_popescu: decimation this is the so called stupid wife paradox. it goes like this : when she's young she thumbs her nose at submission, because hey, she's not "that kind of girl". so she finds a husband instead, spends two-three decades discovering that it's a rotten deal, then gets to live with teh regret.

01:25:09 mircea_popescu: youth wasted on the young and all that.

01:25:38 decimation: mircea_popescu: of course the french philosophes pretty much founded the 'revolutionary intellectual' archetype

01:26:03 mircea_popescu: depends how you count the greek sophist.

01:26:18 mircea_popescu: or the byzantine byzantine. or the medieval courtier.

01:26:34 mircea_popescu: look into the abomination of "courtly love" to see 1100ad shitgnomism en fleur.

01:27:06 decimation: yeah, but the french revolution is a clean presentation of the modern 'revolutionary intellectual' and the consequences if he gains power

01:27:37 mircea_popescu: certainly more amply documented in "not dead" languages.

01:27:59 decimation: heh yeah

01:28:13 asciilifeform: hey folks still speak occitan and languadoc

01:28:16 asciilifeform: *languedoc

01:28:31 decimation: plus the history of the french revolution is still shrouded by those who have a stake in its outcome

01:28:42 asciilifeform: obligatory deng xiaoping here...

01:28:46 mircea_popescu: hence the scare quotes

01:29:09 mircea_popescu: heck, folks still speak greek. and it's certainly more mutually intelligible with classical greek than current english with high english.

01:29:17 asciilifeform: irrc it was him who was asked 'was fr. rev. a good idea?' answered 'too early to say'

01:29:18 decimation: or low german

01:29:37 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: if you like living fossilization, visit iceland

01:29:42 decimation: english arose because some retarded vikings living in the netherlands couldn't speak german

01:29:51 asciilifeform: more or less bug-for-bug compatibility with classical norse

01:29:57 mircea_popescu: decimation plattdeustch is still spoken, like idish

01:30:17 decimation: yeah, germany still hasn't steamrolled all of its accents

01:30:20 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: believe or not - there are idish newspapers in usa.

01:30:30 mircea_popescu: i used to know a guy publishing one

01:30:34 mircea_popescu: meanwhile dead, bu anyway

01:31:20 mircea_popescu: but anyway, anyone guess what "hron rade" denotes, in "english" ?

01:32:03 decimation: honarary?

01:32:19 decimation: heh honorary

01:32:28 mircea_popescu: (i'll help by pointing out that alf's device in discussing xerxes is structurally similar but stylistically very indicative of the changes in society since then)

01:33:30 asciilifeform: hey what can i do in barbaric tongue

01:33:32 mircea_popescu: anyway : "the sea" is the hellespont (which is what xerxes ordered flogged) in the same way hron (whale's) rade (road) is the sea.

01:33:46 mircea_popescu: one's categorical symbolization, the other's a kenning.

01:34:07 decimation: kenning as in kennelernen?

01:34:12 asciilifeform: everyone who likes kennings, straight to norse book, 'do not pass go, do not collect 200'

01:34:16 mircea_popescu: as in this poetic device

01:34:55 asciilifeform: mega-classic

01:35:08 mircea_popescu: btw, anyone know how cockney got to be called that ?

01:35:18 decimation: kennenlernen means 'familiarity' in german

01:35:27 mircea_popescu: decimation learning by similarity something

01:35:34 decimation: wasn't there a certain church bell

01:35:40 mircea_popescu: nope.

01:36:07 mircea_popescu: the story is, that a london redditard (poor kid from periphery) visited some peasant family once

01:36:33 mircea_popescu: which was impressive to him, because a) they had food and b) good living conditions (as compared to shitlondon of the time)

01:36:40 mircea_popescu: but especially c) all sorts of weird exotic shit.

01:37:03 mircea_popescu: so one time when a horse neighed, he got all scared. but the farmer told him to relax, horse just does that, it's called neighing and it never killed anyone.

01:37:21 mircea_popescu: time for bed, and in the early morning a very morose londoner sat with his breakfast.

01:37:27 mircea_popescu: "s'thematter, couldn't sleep any ?"

01:37:37 mircea_popescu: "holy shit all these cocks neighing!"

01:37:49 decimation: heh

01:37:53 asciilifeform: 'Down came good Freya, frowning at F?fu. / Said she to the warren-born: "No worth I find / In your smiting of cheese-thieves. Smirk not, but obey me...'

01:38:16 mircea_popescu: cats ?

01:38:34 asciilifeform: (from earlier link)

01:39:10 decimation: yeah it's the same root https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/kennen#German "From Old High German kennan, from Proto-Germanic *kannijaną (“to know”). Cognate to English ken (“knowledge, understanding”)."

01:39:12 assbot: kennen - Wiktionary ... ( http://bit.ly/1Ed4dUq )

01:40:21 mircea_popescu: it is.

01:41:08 mircea_popescu: btw, re "useful idiots", anyone actually read Mona Charen ?

01:41:14 asciilifeform: 'Bien Darkmans then, Bouse Mort and Ken The bien Coves bings awast, On Chates to trine by Rome-Coves dine, For his long lib at last.'

01:41:22 asciilifeform: engl. has 'ken'

01:45:12 asciilifeform: (i don't know anyone who didn't first run into it in p&p)

01:47:19 mircea_popescu: "In Western democracies, even in the U.S. where the hostility to regulation is greatest, there is a vast amount of central decision-making, but day to day decisions are left to market forces. A lot of the regulation - everything from bolt threads to type fonts - is carried out by tens of thousands of standardization agreements worked out by the industries involved. The solutions that arise aren't always optimal, but th

01:47:19 mircea_popescu: ey usually end up being workable. After two decades of fumbling, we have settled on a de facto standard for computer operating systems. It has imperfections - some serious - but it generally works. Imagine being saddled with a computer architecture defined by some central planning committee in 1983. At about that time, someone in the U.S. Government realized with horror that all the standardization agreements mentioned

01:47:19 mircea_popescu: above were being made and enforced with no government oversight. So the Government convened some hearings. The unanimous consensus, even by Ralph Nader, was that attempting to regulate this process was an invitation to chaos. "

01:47:33 mircea_popescu: lawl. this guy misread so much of recent history i'm giving up on reading it.

01:49:29 asciilifeform: phun phakt: usg really did come out with a 'standard' cpu!

01:49:33 asciilifeform: around same time as ada '83

01:49:43 asciilifeform: the only present-day manufacturers are chinese

01:50:04 asciilifeform: (and are also the only, afaik, remaining users...)

01:50:22 asciilifeform: 'mil-std-1750a' for the curious.

01:50:36 mircea_popescu: yup

01:51:06 asciilifeform: so dead, was snipped from gcc

01:53:01 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 6273 @ 0.00034181 = 2.1442 BTC [-]

02:01:58 mod6: so i made some additional changes to the modified pogo script. anyone wanna help me test quick? I tested it myself, but it'd be cool if someone else can verify.

02:02:35 scoopbot: New post on Qntra.net by thestringpuller: http://qntra.net/2015/03/blythe-masters-to-head-wall-street-invasion/

02:03:30 mod6: what's changed? 1) added some checks to see if boost,bdb,openssl are already built, if so, skip re-downloading & building 2) added a 'clean' command line parameter so you don't have to do this manually

02:03:34 mod6: http://pastebin.com/raw.php?i=A07gdeGX

02:03:35 assbot: ... ( http://bit.ly/1Ed76Va )

02:03:57 asciilifeform: mod6: neato. incidentally that's what, traditionally, 'make' is for

02:04:06 *: asciilifeform was simply too lazy to write a proper 'makefile'

02:04:30 mod6: yup, it just simply utilizes the makefile. but this way a person only has to run `auto.sh`

02:04:38 mod6: :]

02:04:55 asciilifeform: 'make' simply doesn't react well to being called from 'make'.

02:05:04 asciilifeform: (why? because retarded, don't ask me)

02:05:18 asciilifeform: that's why my orig. thing was a .sh

02:05:48 mod6: yeah, makefiles are touchy

02:06:29 asciilifeform: thestringpuller: i'm rather surprised it took them so long to hook up the goldpricedumpatron to btc

02:07:00 asciilifeform: though it's kinda a sad joke

02:07:38 asciilifeform: (compare 'physical settlement' in btc to gold, etc)

02:08:24 mircea_popescu: "hook" is being generous.

02:09:42 decimation: asciilifeform: if make is so terrible, why is it ubiquitous?

02:10:15 decimation: it's not like it 'fits into the cpu' like C does

02:10:27 mod6: so if you have a linux machine, and you want to help test, read this: http://dpaste.com/17V9VKB

02:10:28 assbot: dpaste: 17V9VKB ... ( http://bit.ly/1b3eHft )

02:11:11 decimation: mod6: you could have enumerated in octal and saved a few characters :)

02:12:16 mod6: fair. ;)

02:12:36 asciilifeform: decimation: there are plenty of 'crackpot' alternatives ('cmake', 'bake', .... 1001 others) but guess what

02:13:10 decimation: I kinda like scons

02:13:17 decimation: shitgnomery?

02:15:19 mircea_popescu: decimation no. jwzery. this attitude whereby one's excused from political involvement.

02:15:33 mircea_popescu: "so what if make sucks, not like i have the responsibility to find and support an improvement. i just type here."

02:16:58 mircea_popescu: "so the wife's a nag ? doesn't mean i /have to/ beat her until she desists. build mancave instead." on it goes. politicians are idiots ? self-appoint as "better than this" and that's that, work done. not like you have to shoot the bad politico if you can't vote him out. what, /have to/ ?!

02:17:13 mircea_popescu: not the right sort of morals, these, that are actionable. gotta have some of a more theoretical sort.

02:20:03 decimation: i want the noise

02:20:17 mircea_popescu: up to you. i dun think it's yet unwelcome.

02:20:30 decimation: mircea_popescu: it's common in the us for a usg employee to regard himself as 'apolitical' because he wasn't elected

02:20:44 mircea_popescu: well sure.

02:21:06 mircea_popescu: what's it change tho. it's common for rapists to regard themselves as "good fathers" and so forth, because she was asking for it or w/e.

02:21:08 mod6: ok... so. lets see here. i do think that ascii updated his key since then...

02:21:27 mod6: but i don't ever get that error... although, someone else has seen it before iirc.

02:21:30 asciilifeform: same modulus!

02:21:32 decimation: mod6: i'm running into a bad sig error too

02:21:42 decimation: virgin gpg db

02:21:55 danielpbarron: oh i just realized that the script potentially uses a different key than the one i have stored

02:23:20 mod6: it /shouldnt/ matter because it puts a .gnupg dir in the place where you run the script from. we didn't want it to diddle with your normal keyring in ~/

02:34:11 asciilifeform: did 'pastebin' crap that in ?

02:34:26 asciilifeform: there's CR LF's in there

02:34:40 decimation: lol in my dpaste?

02:34:42 *: asciilifeform pronounced fatwa on 'pastebin'

02:35:16 asciilifeform: but let all remember.

02:35:31 decimation: asciilifeform: everything feels free to mangle a passing cr I guess

02:35:41 mod6: i use pastebin more often because it does forever-pastes .. guess.. i just have to set dpaste for a year

02:37:10 mod6: decimation: huh, just looked at that error. must be something with 2.x version i'll have to fix0r.

02:37:22 mod6: can you change expiry on that guy for like 1 year?

02:37:29 decimation: yeah obviously some kind of permission problem

02:37:32 decimation: for the dpaste?

02:37:35 mod6: plz

02:37:47 decimation: done

02:38:15 mircea_popescu: !up p15

02:38:29 mod6: if you run it again and you don't have $FULL_CLEAN set to "TRUE", you'll need to delete ~/build/.gnupg manually.

02:39:03 mircea_popescu: * asciilifeform pronounced fatwa on 'pastebin' << kakobrekla said we're supposed to use dpaste.

02:39:09 mod6: ugh. anyway, i was hoping this would be the /easy/ part and we could actually test the part that needs testing lol.

02:39:23 asciilifeform: not the output

02:39:51 asciilifeform: betcha 'dpaste' takes a fat shit in there all the same

02:40:02 asciilifeform: but somebody test if want to

02:40:34 asciilifeform: it's building 'openssl' on my box now. and probably will for a few hrs, it's a slow box

02:41:36 decimation: mod6: I set $FULL_CLEAN to "FALSE" and it didn't do anything different

02:42:12 mod6: decimation: ok. that's fine. not sure what it's deal is.

02:42:25 mod6: thanks for giving it a shot.

02:42:30 decimation: no problem

02:42:50 decimation: it's probably a good idea to get it working on centos6 because that's pretty much the 'amazon linux' shit

02:43:11 mod6: eh, all around it's not much of an issue with the perl script, because no one will run that ever anyway.

02:43:40 mod6: i'll use it to patch the source code, then i'll bundle up the release.

02:44:32 mod6: everyone will start with an already patched codebase, unless they want to patch it manually or wrestle with one of the 2 scripts we have for this purpose

02:45:04 mod6: it seems, everyone has a mixed bag so it's hard to account for all of that i think.

02:45:19 decimation: yeah cross-platform is a pain in the ass

02:47:13 mod6: asciilifeform: this is the correct key to pull for you right?

02:49:45 mod6: decimation: anyway, it totally works fine for me on my aws machine.

02:50:34 mod6: oh, i guess im running a deb6 ami up there.

02:50:40 decimation: lemme try

02:50:45 mod6: and yeah, im using gpg 1.4.10 there too

02:51:21 mod6: so centos6 might have issues if gpg 2.x, so maybe i just need to get my head out of my ass and add some code for that.

02:56:02 decimation: yeah ec2 uses gpg 2.0.25

02:56:13 trinque: mod6: I got through the patching script fine on latest gentoo

02:56:38 trinque: what shell is supposed to be running the next one

02:58:15 mod6: it's a bourne shell script /bin/sh

02:58:25 trinque: my sh does not have -xu

02:58:33 trinque: I think in debian sh is dash, maybe?

02:58:41 mod6: ahh, just take off those params then. it doesn't need 'em i don't think.

02:58:46 trinque: k

02:58:53 mod6: ben addded those, not exactly sure what they do. lol.

02:59:11 *: trinque strokes the cargo

02:59:55 mod6: thanks for testing trinque

03:00:08 asciilifeform: still cranking 'boost'

03:00:28 mod6: ahh, ok cool.

03:00:35 mod6: did you get through the perl script ok alf?

03:00:50 asciilifeform: wai wat

03:00:56 asciilifeform: is that in the sh somewhere

03:01:32 trinque: mod6: no problem, chugging along in the build

03:01:43 mod6: no, the perl script is a separate thing that grabs the v0.5.3 base code and then patches it. then `auto.sh' pulls bdb,openssl,and boost and builds 'em and then builds the static bitcoind

03:02:30 mod6: for all: keep in mind if you're not running the test on a x64 machine, you'll probably have to edit the vars on lines 4, 6 & 8

03:02:48 asciilifeform: neh it is

03:04:17 decimation: interesting, it seems that it works just fine on amazon linux

03:04:23 decimation: so it's not a gpg2 thing

03:05:02 mod6: ok so your amazon linux is running gpg v 1.4.10?

03:05:12 decimation: no 2.0.25

03:05:29 asciilifeform: built deps, croaked on not finding bitcoin src

03:05:33 danielpbarron: oh uh.. i'm not running on a x64 machine (if that means bits in processor)

03:05:34 asciilifeform: why are these separate scripts again ?

03:05:57 mod6: danielpbarron: yeah, that'll be a problem. what os/arch are you on?

03:07:19 mod6: asciilifeform: because how we'll roll out the release: 1) I'll patch the source myself and put it in a 'bitcoin' directory 2) i'll place the 'auto.sh' in the same parent directory as 'bitcoin' directory 3) tar those up 4) end user will unpack archive and execute `auto.sh'

03:07:46 danielpbarron: gentoo i386

03:08:04 mod6: so in the end the downloading/patching of the v0.5.3 base code won't be necessary since it'll already be complete.

03:08:49 mod6: danielpbarron: ok, change line 4 to: "32", line 6 to: "x86_32" and line 8 to: "linux-x86_32"

03:08:56 mod6: and cross fingers

03:09:12 mod6: i've never tested this on 32bit so this is a first.

03:09:19 mod6: in fact.

03:09:19 trinque: decimation: did you try changing that home var to something else?

03:09:23 decimation: yes

03:09:24 trinque: I search and replaced mine with BUILD_DIR

03:09:35 trinque: so as not to mask $HOME

03:10:06 decimation: I'll try that

03:10:14 danielpbarron: of what, auto.sh ? I hadn't even gotten that far yet

03:10:18 mod6: while you're at it danielpbarron comment out line 130 of "auto.sh" so I can have you run one other command if you get through the static build.

03:10:26 mod6: (130 = "strip" command)

03:10:39 mod6: sorry, yes.

03:10:42 *: mod6 is slow.

03:11:28 decimation: trinque: no that didn't work

03:11:34 danielpbarron: no sorry i'm just distracted by the 3d gun guy trying to impress me on twitter

03:11:36 mod6: at the end of the static build there are 2 ugly warnings, but they're just warnings. so no worries.

03:11:43 mod6: heheh.

03:11:48 mod6: np, thanks for your help.

03:14:04 decimation: it might be that the umask on the amazon box is group writable, but isn't on my centos6 obx

03:14:30 mod6: hmm. noted. thanks decimation

04:36:55 assbot: dpaste: 319C632 ... ( http://bit.ly/1AgZ7ml )

04:36:59 asciilifeform: see, i missed all of this because did not even suspect this level of shitgnomery

04:37:09 decimation: how did you get yours working asciilifeform?

04:37:16 mod6: which works, because those are just warnings. it does output a bitcoind in the bitcoin/src dir

04:37:31 decimation: mod6: try modding the openssl 'configure' stuff to use 'no-dso'

04:37:47 asciilifeform: decimation: i don't think i noticed/touched this knob

04:38:03 asciilifeform: this is why it helps to have >1 of us pay attention

04:38:04 mod6: here's a full shot: http://dpaste.com/06NAYCD

04:38:05 assbot: dpaste: 06NAYCD ... ( http://bit.ly/1AgZ8Xl )

04:38:48 asciilifeform: i suggest fixing by using a pre-heartbleed openssl

04:39:03 asciilifeform: if anyone has any reason why this is a bad idea, please suggest it

04:39:36 mod6: pre-heart bleed? like 0.9.8o or whatever?

04:39:59 asciilifeform: pre-1.0.1 iirc

04:40:04 decimation: not that heartbleed really matters for our purposes

04:40:18 decimation: or have we not snipped the rpc stuff yet

04:40:26 asciilifeform: it doesn't, if the https-snipper patch was merged.

04:40:27 mod6: well, it was 0.9.8o that was giving us the issues with the tx in the 168`001 block

04:40:34 asciilifeform: rpc is still in

04:40:48 asciilifeform: but i personally ripped out https

04:41:13 asciilifeform: mod6: did anyone ever fully crack the conundrum ?

04:41:19 decimation: yeah if you are commanding bitcoind on an untrusted network you are fucktarded

04:41:36 mod6: no, not yet. i've been focused on just getting a release out.

04:42:03 asciilifeform: could find boojum therein, one wholly worth the effort

04:42:15 mod6: yeah certainly.

04:42:18 danielpbarron: mod6> danielpbarron: oh you're running this on ARM? this won't build on arm probably. << ahh you called it the "modified pogo script" which gave me the wrong impression.. but I understand what you meant now

04:42:38 mod6: ahh, my bad. sorry I didn't clairify

04:42:50 mod6: decimation: so no-dso gets passed to the openssl build?

04:43:00 decimation: yeah you put it on the Config arg line

04:43:14 mod6: ok, sweet, i'll give that a try now.

04:44:18 *: asciilifeform still suspects that: 168001 was a stealthfork

04:44:26 mod6: building...

04:44:50 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 64750 @ 0.00035793 = 23.176 BTC [+]

04:45:02 mod6: asciilifeform: it is certainly /strange/ that this problem occurs right after the last checkpoint in our version.

04:45:51 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 22400 @ 0.00037275 = 8.3496 BTC [+]

04:50:13 decimation: ok I have to dynamically link -l m and now it works without -l dl

04:50:24 decimation: at least, it starts

04:50:47 mod6: alright gents, i added 'no-dso' to the openssl configure and removed "- dl" from the makefile, and it compiled just fine:

04:50:50 mod6: http://dpaste.com/1HYJCGS

04:50:51 assbot: dpaste: 1HYJCGS ... ( http://bit.ly/1AgZMnQ )

04:50:53 decimation: me too

04:51:07 mod6: you had to add in

04:51:10 decimation: except for the dynamic -l m and pthread_nonshared

04:51:12 mod6: "-l m" ?

04:51:17 decimation: yep

04:51:24 decimation: it must be a redhat-ism

04:51:43 mod6: ah. ok.

04:51:53 mod6: well, that's good to know i guess in case of RH

04:53:25 mod6: so i'll re-submit that makefile patch and what will be v0.0.5 of the mod'd pogo script (with 'no-dso')

04:53:34 asciilifeform: neato

04:53:42 asciilifeform: builds, but does it run ?

04:53:49 decimation: ok you have to install glib-static on redhat

04:53:50 mod6: that bitcoind does run and start pulling blocks btw too

04:53:58 asciilifeform: aha!

04:54:08 asciilifeform: so this, then, is the new state of the art.

04:54:26 decimation: yes, 'strip out all the static libs 'cause it saves space'

04:55:35 mod6: http://dpaste.com/0RFHH3E

04:55:37 assbot: dpaste: 0RFHH3E ... ( http://bit.ly/1AgZZHA )

04:56:25 mod6: i'll do some more sync testing once I get the changes we found tonight resubmitted to the mailing list.

04:56:38 mod6: this was highly productive tonight; I thank you all who helped!

04:56:46 decimation: no problem, good night

04:57:26 mod6: still have a moutain of work ahead, but we're on a good track.

04:57:30 decimation: ok so the only remaining redhatism is to strip out the 'realpath' thing and add '-l pthread_nonshared to the makefile

04:57:31 mod6: you too. many thanks.

04:58:48 mod6: decimation: i think, in interest of time.. perhaps (with your help/testing) we'll post a patch for the makefile & the auto.sh post release.

04:59:10 mod6: or at least once we have a "freeze"

04:59:36 mod6: then going forward, we'll add in more conditions into these things to account for various platforms/configurations

05:01:06 danielpbarron: and removed "- dl" from the makefile << where is this?

06:13:18 Adlai: there are so few situations where it's remotely helpful to have an assault rifle in full auto, afaict the risk of accidentally using full auto in any other situation make it "wasach" but nothing more

06:13:53 Adlai: "wasach" = army slang, from arabic 'weight' - ie, extra weight which doesn't help you, but you carry it around to look tough

06:14:17 mircea_popescu: those situations being providing cover

06:14:30 mircea_popescu: they're not that few, if you're actually fighting. as opposed to what regular armies regularly do.

06:14:37 fluffypony: http://kukuruku.co/hub/diy/usb-killer

06:14:39 fluffypony: want

06:14:45 Adlai: a bit of training and you can give MUCH better cover with *aimed* selective fire

06:15:05 mircea_popescu: depends if it's five of you or five hundred of you.

06:15:56 mircea_popescu: with batallion size deployments rolling auto is much more effectual than "selective" whatever, because people are weird. sorta like how women living together synch periods, soldiers end up all looking in the same spot.

06:16:03 Adlai: you can drain a 30 round magazine in ~10 seconds and get most of your shots on target, and all of them in the right direction; or drain it in ~3 seconds, overheat your barrel, and kill half your friends

06:16:44 Adlai: there are situations where "spraying" is exactly what you want, but there are better tools for that than 'assault rifle'

06:16:58 *: mircea_popescu agrees that in practical terms, the useful full auto is a shrinking space.

06:17:55 Adlai: on the contrary, there's a lot less picking off enemies hundreds of meters away, and a lot more 'clearing rooms'

06:18:02 mircea_popescu: it comes to us from a time of emplaced machine guns and stuff

06:20:00 fluffypony: first

06:20:05 mircea_popescu: well honestly the second too, but unrelatedly.

06:20:05 *: Adlai maintains that both of these are INcreasing, but neither has anything to do with the AR15 family

06:20:15 mircea_popescu: hahaha what.

06:20:27 fluffypony: I don't know enough about firearm development to speak to the second

06:21:24 mircea_popescu: "but brother, why do you try to rescue cost savings ? you know it;s in its nature to sting you". "yes. but it is in my nature to be stingy."

06:21:46 Adlai: full auto is very useful in urban "kill everything" warfare. no country likes admitting that's what they're training for, but they train for this too.

06:22:11 mircea_popescu: nonsense. what are you going to do, spray and pray ?

06:22:22 Adlai: that's what it's called

06:22:28 mircea_popescu: the only thing that's useful in urban warfare is hiding.

06:22:43 mircea_popescu: everything else is a liability.

19:05:38 mircea_popescu: that the usms claims to have held auctions is undisputed. that it in fact did not is also plainly factual.

19:06:32 mircea_popescu: and this is why "apparently" is not more appropriate. the locus of power is b-a, not usg. when we say something here, fact or no fact, it becomes "apparently", like it or not like it.

19:06:46 mircea_popescu: when usg says something, it becomes allegedly, and until and unless it receives our imprimatur, it STAYS allegedly.

19:07:02 mircea_popescu: and thus, bush allegedly won the 2nd electoral term.

19:54:30 assbot: 0 results for 'ikea shelf' : http://s.b-a.link/?q=ikea+shelf

19:54:30 mircea_popescu: basically, you're in this space that doens't eixst, at all. there's a) real estate you own, and you like enough to own, which contains furniture of value proprotionate to that. and b) real estate you don't give a shit about, if you come back to find it ablaze you just shrug and move on.

19:54:41 mircea_popescu: yours is some sort of insane c) where it has all the disadvantages of both.

19:54:52 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu is approximately correct

19:54:59 mircea_popescu: well so then, here's an idle thought :

19:55:09 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu is puzzled because he can afford sanity

19:55:20 mircea_popescu: the reason you find it so hard to escape the gravity well is in no small part due to the fact that you;ve spent many decades making the wrong decisions and they're a bitch to undo.

19:55:22 asciilifeform: but over here we live in demented pauper-land where sanity is a premium product available to select few.

19:55:40 mircea_popescu: hardest of all is to move from c).

19:55:52 asciilifeform: decades << not quite decade

19:56:11 mircea_popescu: may explain why you're even contemplating the alien insanity, instead of just telling me i'm evil.

19:56:16 asciilifeform: but otherwise a nearly obvious description of what a gravity well even is

19:56:21 mircea_popescu: i guess so huh.

19:56:39 asciilifeform: i mean no shit, it sucks and no one would climb in on his own volition

19:56:51 asciilifeform: if knew what's in the tank

19:56:54 mircea_popescu: myeah. i see it. well... i feel better for having discussed it!

19:57:19 asciilifeform: but i probably should elaborate a little

19:57:31 asciilifeform: would happily set fire to all of it if had the other half of the conundrum licked

19:57:43 mircea_popescu: that's a rare man, and a virtually inexistent woman.

19:57:55 chetty: I beg your pardon

19:57:58 asciilifeform: l0l

19:58:08 trinque: easier when you're poor, heh. I've moved across the country several times, selling all the crap that didn't fit in a car

19:58:17 asciilifeform: trinque: i used to be 'theoretical'

19:58:25 mircea_popescu: chetty it's rare. you know it's rare.

19:58:26 asciilifeform: which is what i call folks who don't need any physical plant

19:58:29 trinque: better to advance the career, get another tv or whatever

19:58:38 asciilifeform: a good friend of mine is 'theoretical'

19:58:39 trinque: asciilifeform: ah yeah, I am mostly bits

19:58:41 asciilifeform: a mathematician

19:58:44 asciilifeform: i envy him often

19:58:47 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform> which is what i call folks who don't need any physical plant << which is why i said i was a theoretical physicist :)

19:58:54 trinque: heh!

19:59:08 chetty: rare it may be, but it does exist

19:59:24 mircea_popescu: it does.

19:59:34 mircea_popescu: hey, i covered my ass with that virtually in there.

19:59:35 fluffypony: BingoBoingo: yeah, when he accused me of having a financial interest I got bored

19:59:35 asciilifeform: i trained the pet, inadvertantly, by threatening, for some years, to move us into a ship

20:00:04 asciilifeform: aha

20:00:09 mircea_popescu: i've been on ships. they suck.

20:00:15 mircea_popescu: fucking bilge, nuff said.

20:00:16 asciilifeform: know what else sucks?

20:00:21 asciilifeform: living on land in gringolandia

20:00:23 fluffypony: mircea_popescu: I don't redditard professionally, I used PRAW + some python to grab the info and then shoved it into Excel of all things

20:00:24 asciilifeform: on $smallint

20:00:39 mircea_popescu: fluffypony well the results were so out of place for the venue. like... wow.

20:00:58 asciilifeform: on the ship you get the thing americans pay $maxint for - maximize distance from nearest human on command - for $0.

20:01:07 mircea_popescu: well, for $gas

20:01:10 fluffypony: I was very annoyed :-P

20:01:11 asciilifeform: sail.

20:01:19 mircea_popescu: op get the motherfucking fuck out.

20:01:22 asciilifeform: (orlov has a small engine, he claims only for parking)

20:01:24 mircea_popescu: you were going to live on a sailboat ?

20:01:30 mircea_popescu: what are you, a cartoon character ?

20:01:44 asciilifeform: had idea before reading mr o, but it was him who demonstrated that it can be done on something less than orbital budget

20:02:04 asciilifeform: anyway, i'm not satisfied presently with his demonstration. he cheated.

20:02:13 mircea_popescu: you ever like... i dunno, ever had a friend in porn invite you to spend a while with a coupla girls on a yacht ? or generally, spent any time on a sail vessel ?

20:02:50 *: asciilifeform is not an expert or veteran of the art. but also is not esp. susceptible to motion sickness

20:03:04 mircea_popescu: but have you ever spent, a whole day, on a sail anything, at sea.

20:03:09 asciilifeform: nope.

20:03:22 mircea_popescu: yes. well, before you expend any serious money / other resources on this, do that.

20:03:24 trinque: the sail really gets the thing swaying

20:03:33 mircea_popescu: you can not begin to imagine how fucking inconvenient it is. at all.

20:03:48 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: for this and other reasons decided that 'too orbital' for budget constraint.

20:03:51 mircea_popescu: i mean sure, as an outing, soemthing to do for a day or w/e, great. splendid sport.

20:03:58 mircea_popescu: but otherwise, jail is BY FAR more comfortable.

20:04:40 mircea_popescu: you wouldn't want to live in a bob sleigh or inside your go-kart either. it's not that dissimilar.

20:05:19 *: asciilifeform searches memory for historical figures who are known to have done any serious thinking while under sail

20:05:26 mircea_popescu: nelson, for one.

20:05:31 mircea_popescu: but he sailed an english manowar.

20:05:45 asciilifeform: aha

20:05:46 mircea_popescu: also franklin. but he sailed english ocean liners.

20:05:49 mircea_popescu: also twain, same.

20:05:57 mircea_popescu: none of these are the thing here discussed.

20:06:15 asciilifeform: at any rate, mr o spends most of his time at anchor

20:06:24 mircea_popescu: because "he chooses to" right ?

20:06:43 asciilifeform: the machine, as i understand, is for reasonably quick, inexpensive, and unobtrusive jurisdiction-switching

20:06:48 mircea_popescu: would be a shitload cheaper to just rent serially. FURNISHED appartments.

20:06:53 asciilifeform: as well as climate-switching

20:07:10 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: air travel -> arse inspection. sail - not yet (doesn't scale well)

20:07:15 mircea_popescu: yeah, sure, because he couldn't be served just as well by a common bus.

20:07:58 asciilifeform: bus to uninhabited islands ?

20:08:44 mircea_popescu: i propose this matter still needs a lot more thinking.

20:09:00 asciilifeform: it solves an actual problem, that some folks perceive themselves as having

20:09:28 asciilifeform: which is the one in 'stand on zanzibar' and of the 'mouse city' overpopulation experiment

20:09:29 chetty: I could go for a deserted island :)

20:17:44 mircea_popescu: "give us your tired, your hungry" omits the whole picture : sure a country of immigrants is a grand way to build yourself up. but, necesarily, it's a great way to fall over like a deflated donut within a century.

20:26:55 mircea_popescu: danielpbarron ahem. through what sort of magic the parts summed exceed the sum ?

20:27:44 danielpbarron: 750 BTC today will be on both chains post-fork

20:28:42 mircea_popescu: right.

20:30:13 danielpbarron: so someone pays you 750 BTC today, which turns into 750 BTC and 750 GSC (gavinscamcoin) later, and you just need to buy another 250 GSC to settle the deal

20:33:02 mircea_popescu: or in other words, they make 250 gsc for no risk, if they believe this theory whereby "people" will "update" to gavincoin on gavin's say so.

20:33:11 thestringpuller: danielpbarron: that assumes this 750 BTC is prefork.

20:33:50 danielpbarron: right, it's still a "good deal" to those who are so sure the fork will be a hit; i'm just trying to figure out how "good a deal" it is

20:39:33 danielpbarron: so it's kinda like they are trading 750 BTC for 250 GSC, no?

20:39:56 danielpbarron: where BTC is this "stilly worthless thing" to them

20:41:44 mike_c: danielpbarron: you need to be 75% confident to break even

20:43:20 danielpbarron: I think I got it now. I was hung up on my own bias against GSC

21:03:21 davout: ah, well to take up the offer you got clarification about amirite

21:05:25 davout: either way, it can't really work now, there can't really be a contract that defines what a gavincoin is before the guy actually commits some code

21:06:29 danielpbarron: it can't really work now because anyone dumb enough to want to make the deal doesn't actually have enough money for it to be worthwhile

21:06:59 danielpbarron: that aside, it should technically be possible to strike a deal

21:08:31 davout: there are plenty of people dumb enough to take the deal that also happen to have >1k

21:09:33 davout: it's not possible, because defining gavincoin as "everything that is not bitcoin" just doesn't work

21:10:38 danielpbarron: i'd define it the way they do: a fork of bitcoin that gets 80% consensus from miners (or 75% or 95%, whatever magic number they want)

21:11:46 davout: what if it's like a emergency bugfix harfork? or any kind of non-braindamaged hardfork we actually agree with?

21:13:28 davout: because the contract also has to have an expiration, in case the hardfork never actually happens

21:13:33 asciilifeform: 80% << obligatory >> 'We use the term "thieves" if the number of men does not exceed seven, "band of marauders" [or "war-band"] for a number between seven and thirty-five. Anything beyond this is an "army".'

21:55:03 danielpbarron: what's so hard about << I guess I care more about it being accepted by MPEx than I care about the blocksize

21:55:38 danielpbarron: that is, if MP says the blocksize needs to go up, then up it shall go!

21:57:17 davout: Adlai: because imo a one-off 2mb block size increase coin would be valued very differently from an exponential-growth block size coin

21:57:28 danielpbarron: not that i think this will ever be demanded, but there could other changes needed to avert catastrophe that depend on a fork

21:58:16 danielpbarron: especially when considering how messy the code apparently is

21:58:31 davout: Adlai: for such a thing to make sense it has to give the ability to short gavincoin into the dirt, nothing else

22:09:18 mircea_popescu: Most of these folks simultaneously demand government programs to alleviate poverty and hunger, mass transit so the poor can get to where the good jobs are, and international aid to the Third World. In short they want structured, paternalistic programs that address needs defined by the intellectual elite. They are bitterly opposed to innovations that merely give the masses more goods, food, or money and leave the decisi

22:09:18 mircea_popescu: on making to individuals.

22:09:18 mircea_popescu: First, the money has to be taken by force from the wealthy. Voluntary contributions don't count. Taxation at a level that the wealthy will consent to doesn't count. Any approach that recognizes the wealthy as having rights is unsatisfactory. Even worse is any recognition of philanthropy and the idea that some of the wealthy have social consciences.

22:09:22 mircea_popescu: Second, the programs can only address needs defined by the intellectual elite. We won't provide cheaper cars; we'll force people to use mass transit. One volunteer aid group once did a study of Third World needs, concluded that one of the most pressing needs in Third World countries was transportation, then excluded automobiles from consideration because they felt that automobiles had a negative effect. When mass trans

22:09:48 mircea_popescu: see, this is exactly adeuqate : these fuckwits are the exact prototype of the sterile "intellectual". they wish to matter, and they wish this mattering to happen through administrative measures.
