01:28:30 assbot: Cynk Makes the Case for Buying Friends, Naked Short Selling - Bloomberg View

01:33:18 punkman: this Levine guy isn't so bad, even has footnotes

01:42:06 punkman: "I like Institutional Investor's boldness in picking "five hedge fund managers who are likely to deliver market-beating returns over the next 25 years." Who even manages a hedge fund for 25 years? If you deliver market-beating returns for 22 years, come on, retire, you are already fantastically rich"

01:57:08 mircea_popescu: ;p; fpptmptes

01:57:17 mircea_popescu: lol footnotes*

01:57:27 mircea_popescu: and nobody to date ran anything for 25 years

01:59:11 punkman: "You'll never deter Ponzi schemers; the psychology of Ponzi'ing -- either "I am an invincible genius" or "I've lost my investors money and have no choice but to Ponzi my way back into the black" -- sort of precludes deterrence."

01:59:33 punkman: "The best bet is to try to convince people not to invest all their money in undiversified opaque get-rich-quick schemes and, come, on, this is America."

02:01:51 mircea_popescu: quite.

02:02:01 mircea_popescu: there's no "deterring"

02:02:16 punkman: only killing

02:07:00 mircea_popescu: not really.

02:07:10 mircea_popescu: it's like "deterring" black mold in your bathroom.

02:07:26 mircea_popescu: fix the fucking plumbing. once the fed stops leaking, the mold goes away. big whoop

02:12:41 mircea_popescu: punkman shot the guy an email anyway.

09:14:14 jurov: xmj i like electrum. at least client

09:14:27 xmj: cool

09:14:39 jurov: server is quite turd-ish if you wanna run own

09:15:03 fluffypony: jurov: it's not that bad, it's just not very well maintained

09:18:28 fluffypony: never had keyerror

09:18:48 fluffypony: I struggled to get server working on Ubuntu 12.04, needed to install python-leveldb from backports and all sorts

09:19:27 xmj: jurov: looks like a variable that should be set isn't

09:19:53 jurov: i made it working even under pypy :) not very helpful, sunce it's io bound

09:20:05 jurov: but then it stopped working at all

09:20:23 jurov: things to look into someday...

16:07:31 mircea_popescu: fluffypony lol the rat trap is falling apart is it ?

16:14:32 mircea_popescu: this medium.com platform is so fucking retarded...

16:16:32 mircea_popescu: artifexd: Water cooling sprung a leak and blew my power supply. I guess it could've been worse. << yes, actually. you could have been electrocuted.

16:28:03 asciilifeform: artifexd: if water cooling, install 'ground fault interrupter'

16:29:08 asciilifeform: artifexd: common widget, usually installed inside kitchen mains sockets, which senses even small difference between current flowing in through 'hot' and leaving through 'neutral' wire (e.g. through your arse)

16:43:05 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: ground fault gizmos are SOP even in gringolandia now

16:43:22 artifexd: Yep. We have them in both bathrooms and all over the kitchen.

16:43:41 artifexd: Also, oddly, in my wife's office. Not in mine though.

16:44:30 *: asciilifeform tired of drowned hardware many years ago, won't touch water cooling now

16:44:35 mircea_popescu: time to sue her ? :D

16:45:05 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform you should prolly look into it again. you thinkl moore law's a big deal, give a look at plastics.

16:45:23 mircea_popescu: if an abstract "quality" value could be broadly associated, it went up a degree of magnitude each decade since 1960

16:46:26 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: the 'correct' way to do it is to have an all-copper loop, soldered joints - like refrigerator. but, for some reason, no one does this.

16:47:23 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: it's the friction joints (hose to barb) that end up slowly leaking.

16:47:28 mircea_popescu: some miners do it.

16:48:01 asciilifeform: the photos i saw were of immersive oil cooling (think transformer booth)

16:49:23 artifexd: asciilifeform: That's exactly what happened. One of the connections decided to call it quits. It's what I get for using barbs and not securing it.

16:50:03 mircea_popescu: artifexd you know you could just glue it on the outside.

16:50:20 artifexd: I prefer zip ties

16:50:32 asciilifeform: artifexd: mine had hose clamps on all joints. theory - clamping deforms the barb, you leak anyway.

16:51:12 artifexd: Ever had problems with the compression connectors?

16:51:39 asciilifeform: artifexd: there's probably a golden mean here. a real 'saint' with a dynamometer wrench probably could've tightened the clamps exactly enough.

16:52:31 artifexd: I need to find a single video card that can drive all my monitors. Then I can get rid of the water cooling.

16:52:42 mircea_popescu: artifexd why do you prefer zip ties over say caulk ?

16:53:28 artifexd: Zip ties are cheap, clean, provide uniform pressure, and are easy to remove with no mess.

16:54:50 mircea_popescu: but they work on the same principle as the barb does.

16:55:04 mircea_popescu: you want convergence of principles.

16:55:44 mircea_popescu: (this neatly dovetails in stan's "deform barbs" problem above : if you're building an army you don't want a 2nd cavalry, to argue with your 1st. you want an infantry too)

16:55:57 artifexd: The work in conduction with the barb. The barb provides interior pressure against the tube. The zip tie provides exterior pressure.

16:56:02 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: part of the problem is the abysmal, 'consumer' quality of the available thermoblocks (pumbed heat sinks that fit particular cpu, gpu, etc) - not one, afaik, to this day, comes with even threaded connectors

16:56:17 asciilifeform: *plumbed

16:56:25 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform but if they're metal... you can thread it

16:56:38 artifexd: Every one I has is threaded

16:57:08 artifexd: That's how you connect the barbs. Screw 'em in.

16:57:21 asciilifeform: artifexd: neat. these weren't available a decade ago.

16:57:39 mircea_popescu: artifexd imo the interior/exterior distinction is spurious. both work the same way really.

16:58:01 asciilifeform: the ones i had were machined copper encased in a plastic water jacket, with plastic barbs (non-removable)

16:58:09 artifexd: Ew

16:58:30 artifexd: Most decent water blocks don't come with connectors at all. Just threaded holes.

16:59:15 asciilifeform: artifexd: then the answer is clear. 'teflon' tape on the threads, connectors glued (or welded, if copper hose) to the tube.

17:00:47 *: mircea_popescu feels vindicated

17:01:04 artifexd: I don't think I would use copper tubes. My configuration changes too often.

17:01:13 *: asciilifeform was disappointed with water cooled machine even while it worked, on account of it still needing a few fans to operate: various parts for which no water block was available (chipset, mosfets, and power supply of that period)

17:02:29 artifexd: Waterblocks are available for just about everything now. It can take some looking. They aren't cheap. But they work well.

17:02:52 asciilifeform: artifexd: any that guarantee operation with 100% hermetically sealed case? (no case fans)

17:03:03 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [AM1] 4 @ 0.19100007 = 0.764 BTC [-] {3}

17:03:23 artifexd: The heat has to go somewhere

17:03:36 asciilifeform: pc mobo is encrusted with items like mosfets that presume circulation of air

17:04:03 asciilifeform: my sole objective was to get a silent machine

17:04:06 asciilifeform: failed.

17:04:34 artifexd: Ah. Yeah. Blocks for motherboards are available. They cover the north bridge/south bridge and the power caps.

17:05:21 artifexd: My ears aren't near as sensitive as yours so I'm good with a few slow moving fans on the radiator.

17:05:34 asciilifeform: artifexd: i used a 'toyota' radiator.

17:05:59 artifexd: A guy I work with used a car radiator and an aquarium.

17:06:15 artifexd: Ugly as hell, but it seemed to work for him.

17:06:40 artifexd: My system is all contained in the case.

17:07:34 asciilifeform: artifexd: ancient photo of machine in question: http://imgur.com/uE4oR6X

17:07:34 assbot: imgur: the simple image sharer

17:08:11 artifexd: Is that pex?

17:08:17 asciilifeform: pex?

17:08:51 artifexd: It's the plumbing replacement for copper. Flexible tubing.

17:09:10 artifexd: http://www.pexinfo.com

17:09:11 assbot: PEX Information

17:09:21 asciilifeform: artifexd: 'tygon'.

17:09:49 asciilifeform: from chemistry supply

17:10:05 artifexd: Ah

17:10:24 mircea_popescu: <asciilifeform> pc mobo is encrusted with items like mosfets that presume circulation of air << not really. mostly actually cool through the metal of the pcb

17:10:36 mircea_popescu: if you keep the board cool they'll be fine

17:10:56 asciilifeform: now if only pcb had a 'water jacket' like engine block...

17:11:16 mircea_popescu: if you cool the bridges it'll cool through there.

17:11:33 asciilifeform: heuristic: if mosfet has even a small 'hedgehog', the board designer thought pcb trace cooling to be insufficient.

17:12:15 artifexd: Unless it's an Asus board. Then the designers thought it would look cool.

17:12:29 mircea_popescu: i'm telling you, they'll be fine. you're thinking in terms of air movement removing heat, but even in a sealed case,

17:12:38 mircea_popescu: you still have heat conductivity.

17:12:48 asciilifeform: the box in question would croak after 48 hrs. or so if the case was not ventilated.

17:12:59 mircea_popescu: as long as you keep most of the board cool, mostfets can't make enough heat to cook themselves.

17:13:17 mircea_popescu: well, was this the toyota radiator thing in the image ?

17:13:43 asciilifeform: water line ran through two cpus, disk jacket, gpu. there was still some air circulation from power supply (conventional air cooling.) but sans case fan, machine would croak reliably.

17:14:10 asciilifeform: the mosfets did not cook themselves - internal thermal trip. you get a shutdown.

17:14:44 mircea_popescu: how hot was the radiator getting ?

17:14:58 asciilifeform: about 40C, on a warm day.

17:15:26 asciilifeform: considering that it was designed to dissipate 100kw - reasonable.

17:15:31 mircea_popescu: were you cooling just the proc ? or bridges too ?

17:15:51 mircea_popescu: a, no, see, that's the key element here.

17:16:00 asciilifeform: idea was, bridges would be cooled by air drawn upwards by power supply fan.

17:16:03 mircea_popescu: <artifexd> Ah. Yeah. Blocks for motherboards are available. They cover the north bridge/south bridge and the power caps. <<<

17:16:08 mircea_popescu: nah.

17:17:31 mircea_popescu: you basically had no cold source on the pcb. all the things you cooled were meanwhile heating towards it.

17:17:32 asciilifeform: that box would have probably lasted forever if it never had to be moved.

17:19:57 asciilifeform: if i were to attempt it again, i'd probably just machine a copper plinth in which the mobo can live, upside-down, with fins on bottom side.

17:20:19 asciilifeform: if plinth is large enough, no need for water.

17:20:51 mircea_popescu: the one similar thing i saw was purpose made copper tray filled with thermosilicone, on which pcb rested.

17:21:00 mircea_popescu: (no cpu involved, this wasn't a computer)

17:21:12 asciilifeform: this is SOP for large rectifiers, etc.

17:21:42 asciilifeform: you get a 'sarcophagus' similar to the one pictured in the $20k oscilloscope film.

17:27:54 asciilifeform: that machine served me through all of uni & a bit longer. RIP 'humanoid', 2001-2007. (named after line from soviet film, approximately 'humanoid rockets through the sky, screaming out that school's a lie')

17:29:14 asciilifeform: freebsd 4.

17:31:36 mircea_popescu: i still have board/cpu assemblies from the 90s

17:31:49 asciilifeform: likewise. and '80s...

17:32:05 mircea_popescu: amusing how shitty psus became, incidentally. the originals usualy last > a decade. the replacements, maybe even 5 years.

17:32:10 mircea_popescu: then the replacements 2 if you're lucky.

17:33:04 asciilifeform: one can still achieve the 10+ life - by removing all chinese electrolytic caps and replacing with normal ones

17:33:38 asciilifeform: or, alternatively, purchasing a unit where there never were chinese caps (difficult now - the chicoms have taken to mimicking the japanese markings)

17:35:44 asciilifeform: at some point the japanese parts will no longer get shipped in (won't pass the geiger at the container crane!) and then we'll really be phucked.

17:58:57 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform or, who knows, maybe the chinese start making actually good parts.

17:59:10 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: now why would they make those for export.

17:59:27 asciilifeform: (answer: they will - if you pay. but who will pay.)

17:59:59 *: asciilifeform randomly wandered into an old book store last night, saw a textbook on romanian language. every chapter opened with some example of torments from the 'russian yoke.'

18:00:37 *: asciilifeform saw that it was shelved - unsurprisingly - next to a volume of pushkin, in russian.

18:01:49 mircea_popescu: lol

18:02:23 mircea_popescu: if you had wandered into bookshelv in vienna cca 1814, you'd have seen the same book

18:02:26 mircea_popescu: ottoman yoke.

18:02:33 asciilifeform: naturally.

18:02:56 mircea_popescu: who knows, maybe 514, roman yoke

18:03:20 mircea_popescu: zee romanians have this yoke thing. at the rate the eu is going... by 2114...

A nearby policeman obligingly redirected the heavy downtown traffic all day, and it was several hours before the city noticed the unauthorized hole.?

19:14:58 mircea_popescu: "It is their firm determination to mercilessly destroy anyone who dares hurt or attack the supreme leadership of the country even a bit." shit sounds like john cleese was the copywriter in charge.

19:15:27 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: only him and no one else?

19:15:39 BigBitz: Rik Mayll was helping before he died.

19:16:02 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform just as long as it's "obama was killed"

19:16:14 mircea_popescu: or w/e,. bush, ford, pick your incumbent.

22:20:44 asciilifeform: benkay: terrible idea. just like touch screen keyboards (or that israeli firm that made a 'laser' keyboard drawn on table.)

22:21:46 asciilifeform: why does this crud appear again and again? no one heard of 'gorilla arm syndrome' and the like?

22:23:17 asciilifeform: fingers need mechanical feedback

22:23:24 asciilifeform: (not only for pleasure, but to absorb impact.)

22:23:57 asciilifeform: people seem intent on discovering new classes of 'repetitive' injury.

22:26:54 benkay: they keypress is required to prevent bruising?

22:30:17 mircea_popescu: benkay paradoxically, yes.

22:30:28 mircea_popescu: try punching as hard as you can in the air, see what happens.

22:30:40 mircea_popescu: same mechanics apply to finger movement too.

22:30:58 mircea_popescu: if there isn't a face there to stop your fist, your arm has to do it. and it's not really equipped or designed for such.

22:32:14 benkay: certainly, but if one's tapping on the table?
