01:17:11 trinque: gabriel_laddel | trinque: yeah, so fyi there is no obvious way to add the docstring to eldoc << thanks for the crack at it

01:17:48 trinque: might be easier for me to forget about eldoc and try writing what I actually want from scratch

01:19:31 gabriel_laddel: trinque: well, you could do that, but it will interact with eldoc and slime-autodoc

01:19:36 gabriel_laddel: which are on idle timers

01:20:05 trinque: yes that might be the right way; I'm not in a position where I feel I know the best way yet.

01:20:19 gabriel_laddel: lol, idle timers are the ONLY way to do that

01:20:36 trinque: I want two things, at any point I want to know what I have available to me in the context I'm in

01:20:59 trinque: I want to have that broken apart into sensible categories of action, a tree structure of sorts from the current point outward to wherever else I might go

01:21:48 gabriel_laddel: :/ I know. Climacs is the inevitable conclusion. Doing the elisp dance around the cl package system just isn't fun.

01:21:55 gabriel_laddel: and eldoc is integrated into elisp

01:21:59 trinque: yeah you already know two

01:22:00 gabriel_laddel: polluting it.

01:22:11 trinque: gimme the same thing for *THIS* I've chosen

01:22:32 trinque: the docs for it, and a way to traverse to related things I might want to use instead

01:23:01 gabriel_laddel: Generic functions for this class, sorted by if they're implemented yet, things that have been passed this type in the past...

01:23:14 trinque: certainly

01:23:20 trinque: what does the whole goddamn world look like from this point

01:23:38 trinque: I am a very visual/spatial thinker

01:24:03 trinque: and only grow proficient in a domain when I have a sort of physical model of the space

01:24:36 gabriel_laddel: how the fuck did you ever get good at python

01:24:49 gabriel_laddel: related: I want to be able to inspect an object, mark it, then jump around through a bunch of other objects and hit a key to get a sexpr representing the accessor corresponding to my traversal.

01:25:22 trinque: gabriel_laddel | how the fuck did you ever get good at python << by forcing myself to work through it

01:25:48 trinque: eventually acquiring the mental picture of python's insane world

01:26:09 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 15387 @ 0.00053591 = 8.246 BTC [+]

01:26:32 trinque: and tbh I write python in a functional style over mostly primitive types

01:26:57 trinque: I am a simpleton.

01:27:57 trinque: gabriel_laddel: that example of taking action *once* and being able to turn that sort of "recorded" action into an abstraction, exactly fucking right

01:28:48 gabriel_laddel: Even if the indicies are hardcoded... still useful.

01:28:57 trinque: our merry band of madmen got things such as these done once upon a time by representing the ASTs of SQL queries as table structures in postresql

01:29:12 gabriel_laddel: madmen indeed

01:29:24 trinque: that was where I accidentally bumped into the power of a homoiconic language

01:29:32 trinque: because we... lol... forced SQL to behave like one

01:30:07 gabriel_laddel: fyi: http://lisptips.com/post/20871695085/printing-package-qualified-symbols

01:30:08 assbot: Printing package-qualified symbols ... ( http://bit.ly/1HvFRUE )

01:30:35 trinque: model ebnf as tables -> describe some particular grammar in those tables -> derive schema for statements in that grammar -> derive parser for farting ASTs into tables -> so on so on

01:31:16 trinque: it's just everything is data, including that which is used to model and manipulate the data

01:31:19 trinque: lisp did it far far better

01:32:10 trinque: incidentally we had the ebnf one bootstrapped such that it contained the description of its own structure

01:32:16 trinque: and could revise it from there

01:32:20 trinque: transactionally even

01:32:28 trinque: and that was super powerful as well, and I don't know how to get that on the CL side

01:33:16 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 46471 @ 0.00053591 = 24.9043 BTC [+]

01:33:42 gabriel_laddel: what, transactions?

01:33:59 gabriel_laddel: why would you want to revise sexprs?

01:34:13 trinque: yeah, I want to go insane in an arbitrary direction changing some data structure, then decide nope arbitrarily later

01:34:18 trinque: or even better, have it fail some constraint and do so

01:34:23 trinque: or in other words... "database"

01:34:58 gabriel_laddel: yeah, I wish you the best of luck on that quest. It is straightforwards, but ugh.

01:35:03 trinque: I would have to describe better how I've leaned on there being a declared schema which is also data

01:35:43 gabriel_laddel: defclass, plists, alists

01:35:59 trinque: for example an inner join between the schema-describing-tables and the rows describing the grammar was how I wrote a generic to-string for any language in the ebnf tables

01:37:39 gabriel_laddel: fucking ayy man

01:38:13 gabriel_laddel: I hope you don't take offense to this but...

01:38:25 gabriel_laddel: asciilifeform: this is what I mean by "we need people to carry the water"

01:38:40 gabriel_laddel: seriously, redirecting a trinque at CL would make the development 100x better.

01:38:51 gabriel_laddel: *the development experience

01:39:04 trinque: if you mean somebody should've kicked my ass ten years ago for not writing CL, I agree.

01:39:48 gabriel_laddel: I mean that someone should have paid for you to write CL, preferable packaging it up as an unchanging distro supporting only a subset of hardware.

01:40:11 trinque: so, here's what I do in real life, right?

01:40:25 trinque: I model people's businesses using a database

01:40:38 trinque: so to the extent that you put a better tool in my hands to do that, I'll only be appreciative.

01:40:48 trinque: s/appreciative/paying you/

01:41:11 trinque: I'm not personally out to revolutionize computing by focusing all my time on that as such

01:41:17 trinque: make sense?

01:41:25 gabriel_laddel: Yep. This is what I'm trying to get ascii to see.

01:45:28 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 127628 @ 0.00051856 = 66.1828 BTC [-] {2}

01:46:58 trinque: model a business, describe business rules which constrain the changes possible to the model, present the state of the model in various useful ways, attach behavior to changes permitted by the model

01:47:05 trinque: this is every goddamn application I've ever sold

01:47:22 trinque: and a tool which allows me to rapidly do that will drastically increase the rate of said selling

01:47:47 trinque: and you could stack corpses to the sky replacing products which were specific incarnations of such a database, rather than attacking the general problem described above.

01:48:00 trinque: and then when you've got fat stacks from all the killing you've been doing, hell, build some hardware why don't you?

01:49:58 trinque: this I think hits the problem of "the sale wants their particular problem solved head on" vs "to be a successful software business I must generalize" squarely

01:56:15 gabriel_laddel: !s dawg just make the cardano already so we can sell em

01:57:15 assbot: : http://s.b-a.link/?q=dawg+just+make+the+cardano+already+so+we+can+sell+em

01:57:15 gabriel_laddel: kakobrekla: search is down?

01:58:14 phf: were you guys trying to put symbol documentation into slime-autodoc results? that seems pretty easy, just patch whatever swank:autodoc returns. though seems like it would be distracting since multiline docs will keep resizing modeline every time your point is at a new function

01:59:27 phf: there's also C-c C-d d which brings up a window with symbol's description

02:01:31 gabriel_laddel: phf: C-c C-d d << M-x slime-describe-symbol

02:02:47 trinque: bbl

03:46:50 phillipsjk: Can I auth with the bot without voicing?

03:46:55 mircea_popescu: nope.

03:47:16 gabriel_laddel: mircea_popescu: the problem with templates is that generating syntatically correct code is fucking impossible.

03:47:21 mircea_popescu: in any case : i don't like aes for purely political reasons. it became an apparent schelling point out of absolutely nowhere for no discernible reason. these situations always stink.

03:47:52 mircea_popescu: gabriel_laddel i think the principle of machine-fixed code is broken, but hey. maybe you're in a narrow enough case you can pull it off.

03:48:16 mircea_popescu: if you can actually write programs to fix programs - why haven't you yet and why are we still running broken code everywhere.

03:48:28 gabriel_laddel: mircea_popescu: because I'm lazy?

03:48:32 gabriel_laddel: I need interns

03:49:02 mircea_popescu: that process works better the other way. ("i need to intern for this guy" vs "i need people to intern for me")

03:50:05 gabriel_laddel: I want to move *up* the ladder of abstraction. Purely mechanical lisping doesn't interest me.

03:50:33 phillipsjk: Anyway, I screwed up with my AES comment: naivly encrypting game commands with a fixed key will give you the same cipher text given the same input. Chipher modes are not my field of expertise though.

03:50:53 gabriel_laddel: Even if what I'm suggesting for interns is state of the art for some people.

03:51:14 gabriel_laddel: I could go to africa (or stanford) if I wanted to be "considered intelligent"

03:51:19 mircea_popescu: phillipsjk i've not put much design effort into that yet at any rate.

03:57:37 mircea_popescu: blowfish has successfully resisted analysis and was thoroughly abandoned. because aes "won a competition" ?

03:58:22 mircea_popescu: i dunno about you, or anyone else. but to me, winning a competition is a discomendation.

03:58:42 mircea_popescu: you know, like i don't expect a film to be good because it got 7 oscars. i expect it to suck.

04:10:06 phillipsjk: After a little research, I found that twofish was one of the finalists in that competition. (Apparently the 64bit block size of blowfish it a little small for some applications like encrypting over 4GB) You are probing me now :)

04:11:18 mircea_popescu: phillipsjk yes, but that's both trivial to fix and in practice long fixed (twofish, threefish, etc). it is in point of fact a VERY promising cypher branch, mostly on the account of its extremely complex schedule

04:12:25 mircea_popescu: this is shocking but factual : rarely will you see women carrying themselves like actual people outside of dance school and the slave quarters.

04:13:41 cazalla: you're big on posture eh? mentioned numerous times now

04:13:51 mircea_popescu: yes, i'm big on posture.

04:14:29 cazalla: not that i enjoy a slouch, just not something i've considered before either

04:27:22 mircea_popescu: the only performance edge ms ever had in its entire history. ever. directx 6-7

04:27:31 mircea_popescu: blessfully they choked on it.

04:27:34 cazalla: my brother played a lot of homm2 (mind you, here is retarded so probably didn't play it well despite sinking so much time into it, never wanted to play it over LAN with me for some reason).. i prefrered EQ..

04:27:43 ascii_modem: in '95 too. for me, winblows was the beginning of the end, gamewise

04:28:34 cazalla: i liked that ghetto version of homm2 which came on the cd, forget the name of it

04:28:50 ascii_modem: the only edge microshit ever had anywhere was from collusion with hw vendors.

04:28:58 mircea_popescu: nevertheless.

04:29:04 ascii_modem: just as today.

04:29:12 mircea_popescu: at the time, as a game maker, it was "directx or go home"

04:29:18 mircea_popescu: today, i can make an opengl game and simply not care

04:29:25 mircea_popescu: this is foundational.

04:29:43 ben_vulpes: hate to interrupt, but ascii_modem did you ever post a hack for speedily dumping all blocks via a -dumpblock analog or am i misremembering?

05:45:09 decimation: yeah, pretty much - which is the honest answer

05:45:30 gabriel_laddel: "security investments"

05:45:41 gabriel_laddel: !s embrace and extinguish

05:46:42 assbot: : http://s.b-a.link/?q=embrace+and+extinguish

05:46:42 decimation: The Linux Foundation (LF) Core Infrastructure Initiative (CII) is trying to identify OSS projects that need special focus/help for security so that it can best identify OSS projects needing investment.

05:46:42 decimation: "Similarly, the Department of Homeland Security Homeland Open Security Technology (DHS HOST) program’s goal is to “help facilitate the continued adoption of open technology solutions (including OSS)...to improve system security....” They have asked the Institute for Defense Analyses to identify and collect metrics to help identify OSS projects that may especially need investment for security."

05:52:07 mircea_popescu: systemd was an utter disaster for 'em.

05:52:43 punkman: how's that?

05:53:11 mircea_popescu: exactly how "war on terror" was a disaster for them. "oh we conquered iraq". "you won't be able to hold it"

05:53:14 mircea_popescu: wrong metrics.

05:53:27 decimation: "The “libapache2-mod-gnutls” package is especially concerning; this is a key glue mechanism between Apache and GnuTLS, but it seems to be minimally maintained. The others are libraries for processing various formats (images, compression, and XML) that are the basis for many other functions that do not seem to be well maintained. "

05:54:59 mircea_popescu: this is always the loser's excuse, of course.

05:55:41 decimation: "we were intending to bring peace and freedom, not exploit the colony's resources"

05:55:59 ascii_modem: where is the losing? plebes lost, sure (when did they not?) - lizards - won

06:01:15 mircea_popescu: not a debate that can be resolved at any rate.

06:01:34 mircea_popescu: but, without committing to being in any sense persuaded, or anything, consider the following :

06:01:45 mircea_popescu: by the time i can actually point to something, that side's lost.

06:01:50 ascii_modem: lets say this. gawker pays for hippie house , 5 bois per room

06:02:01 mircea_popescu: by the time we have "politically correct" as a concept, us liberalism is dead.

06:02:05 ascii_modem: lockheed - 1

06:02:11 mircea_popescu: by the time "systemd" is a word, usg-as-nsa is no longer.

06:02:14 mircea_popescu: does this make any sense to you ?

06:02:43 ascii_modem: only in wizard universe where names kill things

06:02:52 mircea_popescu: it is not that the name killed things

06:03:08 mircea_popescu: it is that by the time the mistakes got a name, the mistakes are by now too numerous to allow victory anymore.

06:03:25 mircea_popescu: that's the problem here - to make a name you need a concept, and the concept's only circumscribed enough when there's enough errors on the table.

06:03:33 mircea_popescu: and that enough is always > the enough for losing.

06:03:37 ascii_modem: i get that the reich is not 1000year, aha

06:03:58 mircea_popescu: well, i have not the instrumentation to make this point rigurouslyt

16:51:59 ascii_modem: mod6 et at: i've a hypothesis: if we had parallel sig verification, miners would have a strong game-theoretic immediate incentive to seek out & use therealbitcoin nodes

16:52:28 ascii_modem: faster verif. >> less chance of orphanchaining

16:53:03 mircea_popescu: im not sure how this works ?

16:53:32 ascii_modem: have some icecream, think about this

16:54:57 mircea_popescu: i'm a miner, i can think. i run my own nodes, i run my own pool, i couldn't care less about you.

16:55:02 ascii_modem: the funny part is that only the coming of the mega-txspam could have brought this possibility about

16:55:10 mircea_popescu: i'm a miner, i can't think. i run some random derp pool, i couldn't care less about you.

16:55:11 mircea_popescu: which ?

16:55:36 ascii_modem: own nodes aha. but gotta know you're on longest chain

16:55:53 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 10857 @ 0.00050443 = 5.4766 BTC [-] {2}

16:58:34 ascii_modem: miner working on chain that's been orphaned is pissing in the wind

16:58:46 mod6: ascii_modem: qq about stator build script: I was taking a closer look at this and it seems that your version removes 'no-shared' from the openssl configuration parameters and replaces it with 'threads'. Any main reason here? I thought we needed 'no-shared'? Just curious since your script seems to work well.

16:59:00 ascii_modem: to know precisely when to stop, he listens to incoming blks

16:59:49 ascii_modem: mod6: no idea, i didn't even remember what was in your original

16:59:50 punkman: 0.5.3 getwork is not compatible with anything they use

17:00:05 ascii_modem: punkman: ?

17:02:03 punkman: will be hard to use 0.5.3 for mining at this point

17:02:13 ascii_modem: why?

17:03:04 punkman: because we don't have getblocktemplate

17:03:18 ascii_modem: so?

17:03:38 ascii_modem: workfnction has not changed!

17:03:39 mircea_popescu: so, again : if they can think they don't need you. if they can't think, they wouldn't even know you exist.

17:03:56 mircea_popescu: game theopretically, bitcoind is irrelevant for mining.

17:04:11 mircea_popescu: but do not despair : the same situation was in place back when the power rangers maintained it.

17:04:29 ascii_modem: so the few miners who use parallel ver ~waste fewer cycles on orphan chain~ and wipe the floor with the rest

17:05:02 mircea_popescu: are you like deliberately not reading ?

17:05:28 ascii_modem: expand the 'cant think'

17:05:43 mircea_popescu: you know, spend three hours mining a spv verified chain because they just don't give a fuck.

17:05:52 mircea_popescu: dumb enough to point THEIR hash at antminer or w/e

17:06:09 ascii_modem: and now the 'can think'

17:06:38 mircea_popescu: ahaha great name

17:06:57 ascii_modem: do we have any detectable sign of 'can think' existing in the wild ?

17:07:03 punkman: yes

17:07:12 mircea_popescu: depends what we means.

17:08:17 ascii_modem: and i'll point out that if these people aren't talking ~directly~ to each other, they would still be verifying at speed of slowest link

17:08:28 mircea_popescu: why wouldn't they be talking directly.

17:08:38 mircea_popescu: even the schmucks figured that one out apparently.

17:08:42 ascii_modem: 'we' being something i could read

17:09:11 mircea_popescu: ascii_modem yeah, it's on the shelf right next to the secret cypher suites, have at.

17:09:22 ascii_modem: l0lz

17:10:07 mircea_popescu: understand : unlike most usecases for software, bitcoin mining presents exactly zero incentive to share code.

17:10:12 ascii_modem: aha

17:10:13 mircea_popescu: you DO NOT benefit from more people using your software.

17:10:40 mircea_popescu: this isn't wordpress, or red hat, where you hope to make money downstream out of basically, advertising.

17:10:54 mircea_popescu: there's a revenue model in place, and traditional software paradigms plainly do not matter.

17:10:56 ascii_modem: aha it's nuke war

17:12:06 ascii_modem: i would personally be surprised to learn that anyone bothered to implement multicpu ver prior to 950+kb blocks

17:12:23 mircea_popescu: what the current outsider schmucks (on #bitcoin-dev and etc) hope to achieve with their time is, release enough code that nobody* uses to give the impression they know their shit, so they can one day maybe join the actual miners as a junior analyst, and until then survive on conference rubber chicken.

17:12:27 ascii_modem: but sure, why not

17:12:33 mircea_popescu: it's a shitty game plan, but then again there's women aspiring to be singers, so.

17:12:53 mircea_popescu: iirc the first > 500kb block was a year ago

17:13:03 ascii_modem: sure

17:13:17 ascii_modem: but it being sop - pretty new?

17:13:27 ascii_modem: needs spam

17:13:28 mircea_popescu: sop is meaningless for the aforementioned reasons

17:13:45 mircea_popescu: this isn't a field where such a thing as sop may be a defined symbol.

17:14:06 ascii_modem: just that without heavy blocks, multicpu makes no appreciable difference

17:14:24 mircea_popescu: on olne hand, you'd be surprised what is appreciable for mining

17:14:29 mircea_popescu: a quarter second is actually money

17:14:38 ascii_modem: then yes

17:14:40 mircea_popescu: on the other hand, some people do code defensively. rare but exists

17:15:34 ascii_modem: if mircea_popescu tells us that this exists alive somewhere, i'm inclined to at least consider it

17:15:37 mircea_popescu: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=12-07-2015#1198564 << turns out.

17:15:37 assbot: Logged on 12-07-2015 11:30:39; kakobrekla: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=12-07-2015#1198038 < turns out you know the guy https://twitter.com/ErikVoorhees/status/619253918468444161

17:16:30 mircea_popescu: ascii_modem the gist of what i'm saying is that while foundation publishing the best code possible is a very useful and very worthy thing, you do not have game theoretic reasons to expect the things you were claiming to ewxpect

17:16:38 mircea_popescu: chiefly because that game doesn't exist, in a number of wayus.

17:16:52 ascii_modem: but will point out that we could easily have uptake among the not-quite-13373st but not the most ludicrously idiotic minerz

17:17:11 ascii_modem: with a public multicpu apparatus

17:17:17 mircea_popescu: this middle may perhaps exist, sure. sadly it's hard to observe

17:17:23 mircea_popescu: which is a very concerning thing, as it happens

17:17:39 ascii_modem: this'd be a spiffy litmus for it

17:17:46 ascii_modem: exists or not?!

17:18:15 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 144076 @ 0.00050498 = 72.7555 BTC [+]

17:18:16 mircea_popescu: the broader problem is that the way mining works is very much discouraging middle, which is a serious problem, as death of the middle class always precedes centralization.

17:18:17 ascii_modem: would soon learn

17:18:37 mircea_popescu: the way this works is : if you're any good as a miner, you're going to have your own infrastructure. you might keep the pool closed,

17:18:44 mircea_popescu: but it also costs you nothing to keep it open

17:19:00 mircea_popescu: and so, once it's open, people that aren't every bit as good as you no longer have any incentive to continue

17:19:04 mircea_popescu: instead, they point at you.

17:19:13 mircea_popescu: this is how the current "45% of network is dumb as rocks" thing has appeared

17:19:27 mircea_popescu: it was slowly nursed over half a decade by the above unfortunate centralizing force.

17:19:56 mircea_popescu: not that this problem wasn't broadly predicted and discussed 2010-2011. the solution, predictably, from white young adult us schmucks, was "honor!1!"

17:20:00 mircea_popescu: it failed, predictably.

17:20:21 mircea_popescu: !up ascii_modem

17:22:22 pete_dushenski: mircea_popescu: so you see a way to reinvigorate the middle ?

17:22:29 mircea_popescu: no.

17:22:45 ascii_modem: i've been thinking of the mechanics of miner war

17:23:20 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 42824 @ 0.00050498 = 21.6253 BTC [+]

17:23:57 ascii_modem: none of it points anywhere but moar centralized mines

17:24:13 pete_dushenski: next to hydroelectric dams

17:24:22 mircea_popescu: there fundamentally can not be a way to organize mining that's not centralizing, BECAUSE mining is going to have to follow the same rules, as that's what it does for bitcoin : checks them.

17:24:26 ascii_modem: mno

17:24:33 ascii_modem: plastique is cheap

17:24:43 ascii_modem: dams - fragile

17:25:19 pete_dushenski: ascii_modem: 'plastique' makes me think of explosives, but that can't be what you mean ?

17:25:29 ascii_modem: what else

17:25:46 ascii_modem: what, you think they won't ?

17:25:48 pete_dushenski: aha got it now.

17:25:49 mircea_popescu: it may very well turn out that bitcoin is a case of wishful thinking, entirely being powered by the illusion that we've managed to "get free energy" for as long as this illusion that "miners can be centrally verifying in a decentralizewd manner" lasts.

17:26:21 mircea_popescu: just like, you know, "coal burns in the furnace, yet coal in the mine will never run out" or whatever

17:26:55 ascii_modem: slavecoin then.

17:27:00 mircea_popescu: goes right into the discussion re monetary incentives a week or two ago.

17:27:07 mircea_popescu: ascii_modem again with the "Honor!!11" ?

17:27:10 mircea_popescu: what is with you people!

17:27:23 ascii_modem: honor?

17:27:29 mircea_popescu: yes. what else is slave coin ?

17:27:44 ascii_modem: just a different workfunct

17:27:49 mircea_popescu: slavecoin is honorcoin,

17:27:52 mircea_popescu: no two ways about it

17:28:01 ascii_modem: i dun see it

17:28:13 mircea_popescu: why are the slaves mining ?

17:28:38 ascii_modem: because fed to ants if they slack?

17:28:44 mircea_popescu: so honor.

17:29:08 pete_dushenski: survival = honour ?

17:29:16 ascii_modem: can automate the punishment a la cokemachine

17:29:24 pete_dushenski: what is this, greece ?

17:30:37 assbot: ... ( http://bit.ly/1RrMqTg )

17:30:44 ascii_modem: is mircea_popescu posting from some planet inhabited by beings who die rather than slaving, en.masse?

17:30:58 ascii_modem: can't say i ever visited there

17:31:12 mircea_popescu: why do you think this matters ?

17:31:54 mircea_popescu: objectively, what difference can you see between the slave that mines slavecoin because otherwise the ants and the holy paladin that doesn't ravish the maid because... "he couldn't live with himself" otherwise ?

17:31:59 mircea_popescu: no difference. it's all "for honor".

17:32:26 mircea_popescu: they learned it the same way, too : by having it beaten into them as children.

17:32:51 ascii_modem: well as i understood, you contend that the ant death is 'promise, not protocol'. when i suggest that it can be protocol, answered 'they will take the ants' - no ?

17:32:58 mircea_popescu: no.

17:33:30 mircea_popescu: i answered that in not taking the ants, they're doing exactly what people proposed miners do in 2010 : "well it's centralizing but they should honorably resist"

17:33:34 mircea_popescu: sure. they'll honorably resist

17:33:37 mircea_popescu: until the body gives way.

17:33:45 mircea_popescu: which is an economic process.

17:34:23 mircea_popescu: i suppose i'm not putting enough explicit into this which i know from experience but perhaps alone. there is this thing that happens to a slave, when she's naked

17:34:24 ascii_modem: i'm posting from planet where maxint folks lived and died slaving with considerably less pushing than 'or ants!'

17:34:34 mircea_popescu: and i mean, mentally naked, not without clothes, but without any ideology

17:34:39 mircea_popescu: she can still fail.

17:35:12 mircea_popescu: not because lazy, not because princess in her own head, but simply because there's an end to things. at which point she gets the ants.

17:35:31 ascii_modem: ah - that!

17:35:33 mircea_popescu: but up until that point... the whole charade had been powered by her trying to deny this. which is substantially what honor is.

17:35:54 ascii_modem: so next one picks up the hashng

17:36:04 ascii_modem: when n-1th is antfood

17:36:24 mircea_popescu: turning a broken system into an extensive broken system does not fix the system.

17:36:28 mircea_popescu: what are you, stalin ?

17:36:40 mircea_popescu: "i'm making a loss on every sale but hope to make it up on volume" ?

17:36:50 ascii_modem: he did though

17:36:59 mircea_popescu: notrly.

17:37:04 mircea_popescu: even hruschev laughed at him.

17:37:10 mircea_popescu: imagine that. hruschev! O!

17:37:32 ascii_modem: except that two continents still largely run on what he built 'at a loss'

17:37:38 mircea_popescu: so ?

17:38:06 mircea_popescu: "oh, this shit's pretty stupid" "dude, ITS HUGE!!"

17:38:09 mircea_popescu: what are you, from redmond ?

17:38:16 ascii_modem: h's laughter was the laugh of hyena eating the dead lion

17:38:22 mircea_popescu: perhaps.

17:38:34 mircea_popescu: imo that'd be more like beria, but anyway

17:38:46 ascii_modem: the lot of'em

17:38:55 mircea_popescu: like... you ?

17:39:08 mircea_popescu: or just them, the lot of them, up to an unspecified and unspecifiable border

17:39:30 ascii_modem: i'm a flea on a rat who ate hyena who....

17:39:53 ascii_modem: how else.

17:39:55 pete_dushenski: ....father bought for two tzutzim

17:40:04 ascii_modem: ^

17:40:07 mircea_popescu: lol

17:40:19 mircea_popescu: i dunno, i dun feel cosubstantial with the idiots of the past.

17:40:25 mircea_popescu: maybe another case of wishful thinking.

17:40:38 ascii_modem: i wish i did not

17:40:50 ascii_modem: but reality gets in the way

17:41:05 mircea_popescu: (this term, which probably does not exist in english, should probably be very much akin the xtian practice of eating crackers)

17:41:28 ascii_modem: i've never lived in anything but the ribcages of long-dead dragons.

17:41:53 *: pete_dushenski idem

17:42:46 mircea_popescu: this is fascinating. perhaps the only advantage of being romanian, but also perhaps the only advantage that could truly be called an advantage

17:43:06 mircea_popescu: you get to be the first dragon, for lack of notable historical anything.

17:43:59 pete_dushenski: but what of 'transylvania mops the floor with rest of country' ?

17:44:06 pete_dushenski: what is that if not history ?

17:44:46 mircea_popescu: so the anteaters won the battle with the lemurs ?

17:44:56 mircea_popescu: yay. you kidding me, these shits stand two feet tall

17:46:17 pete_dushenski: mebbe.

17:46:42 mircea_popescu: there were like.... maaaybe two notable romanians. one was german

17:46:44 mircea_popescu: the other was greek.

17:46:48 pete_dushenski: but that shit was still the mold for the dragon.

17:47:05 pete_dushenski: or at least his fertilizer

17:47:22 mircea_popescu: color me skeptical.

17:47:37 pete_dushenski: so you're to be the first notable romanian in history then ?

17:47:45 pete_dushenski: 'romanian' romanina

17:48:05 pete_dushenski: *romanian

17:48:14 mircea_popescu: i dunno that i'm all that romanian, tbh.

17:48:47 ascii_modem: l0l

17:48:58 pete_dushenski: mircea_popescu: than how do you have 'advantage' ?

17:49:02 ascii_modem: where then

17:49:13 mircea_popescu: how did that quote go, "In confronting that which they feared, he had become something else in their eyes...and no longer their champion."

17:49:42 mircea_popescu: pete_dushenski there's an equivocation at work tho.

17:51:05 pete_dushenski: !up ascii_modem

17:51:48 ascii_modem: what next, vlad t. also not romanian !?

17:52:18 pete_dushenski: thus is the fluidity of nationality as a concept

17:52:33 pete_dushenski: it's there when you need it and tucked away when you don't

17:52:41 mircea_popescu: ascii_modem pretty certain he was a basarabi

17:52:53 mircea_popescu: which is an ancient pecenegian clan. about as romanian as it gets.

17:53:05 ascii_modem: aha

17:54:46 mircea_popescu: (pecenegs are a turkic people, migrated in the 500s)

17:55:39 mircea_popescu: anyway, what i meant was merely that i don't generally seem very romanian to romanians themselves

17:55:59 mircea_popescu: chiefly on the grounds of not subscribing to various idiocies that there as anywhere constitute the spirit of propriety.

17:56:52 pete_dushenski: that adverse response by 'the locals' is almost the entrance exam for la serenissima

17:56:56 mircea_popescu: best anecdote to illustrate this being, of course, that i had a (us born) woman over, many years ago, and she made some local friends (clueless kids all excioted about this english speaking american woman that knows computers and with nary an idea about the world around them)

17:57:01 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 26650 @ 0.00050932 = 13.5734 BTC [-]

17:57:13 mircea_popescu: so then when i wanted to meet them she arranged a meeting and they were liek "oh, he's definitely not romanian"

17:57:13 pete_dushenski: if you're 'one of the gang' you're not using your noodle well enough

17:57:25 mircea_popescu: meanwhile, i actually owned the town and their sorry asses to boot. but hey.

17:58:07 mircea_popescu: pete_dushenski you gotta appreciate, at least at the time, being romanian was, to romanians, mostly a derogation.

17:58:27 mircea_popescu: ie, the first step to establish if some item sucked was, "is it romanian made ?" for if it were...

17:58:38 ascii_modem: orcish sop

17:58:45 pete_dushenski: yes, i recall the 'working for foreign company' prestige

17:58:52 ascii_modem: same in ru (of the period)

17:59:20 pete_dushenski: strangely in usa right now, 'made in america' is mark of pride.

17:59:33 ascii_modem: aha

17:59:38 pete_dushenski: basically because corn doesn't have country of manufacture stamp

17:59:41 ascii_modem: at least if not car

17:59:52 pete_dushenski: so finished goods are rarity

17:59:53 mircea_popescu: yeah, as in all dead empires. caragiale notes the case of the 1900s hungarian who declares that he'd rather eat soap wrapped in the hungarian flag than cheese in plain white paper.

18:00:03 ascii_modem: mno

18:00:04 pete_dushenski: the cars are basically corn at this point. see 'bioplastics'

18:00:35 mircea_popescu: incidentally, anyone know the fascinating story of one guadalupe leija serrano ?

18:01:10 mircea_popescu: this was a woman, married, with children. to a drug cartel boss. whose enemies sent a slick kid to seduce her, which the kid did. and he convinced her to withdraw millions of $ from her husband's secret stashes in the us

18:01:16 mircea_popescu: after which, beheaded her, and sent him the head.

18:01:24 mircea_popescu: how is such a great story not in hollywood i wish to know.

18:01:46 mircea_popescu: first mexican beheading, a woman. not empowering enough for the derpstablishment ?

18:01:55 pete_dushenski: more like bollywood material

18:01:55 ascii_modem: made in usa at this time (if not car) means that labour was ruinously expensive - and so there was no sense in saving five cents to make all the parts 'zamac'

18:02:02 pete_dushenski: speaking of which : "Mexico's most notorious drug lord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman broke out of a high security prison on Saturday night for the second time, escaping in a tunnel built right under his cell"

18:08:20 punkman: heh

18:10:18 ascii_modem: back to the mexican fella - in a very important sense he is more dependent on usg staying in business than a u.s. post office director

18:10:42 ascii_modem: no 'war on drugz' - no sinaloa

18:11:15 ascii_modem: unless can retool for slave trade

18:13:11 pete_dushenski: and vice versa. co-dependent relationship between 'war' and sinoloa

18:14:00 pete_dushenski: this was also lafond's point in the walmart piece.

18:14:36 pete_dushenski: that communities must be destroyed and middle class businesses bankrupted in order to fuel fight against nouns

18:30:49 pete_dushenski: highlight : "Block pruning allows Bitcoin Core to delete the raw block and undo data once it’s been validated and used to build the databases. "

18:32:28 pete_dushenski: "The minimum was chosen so that Bitcoin Core will be able to maintain at least 288 blocks on disk (two days worth of blocks at 10 minutes per block). In rare instances it is possible that the amount of space used will exceed the pruning target in order to keep the required last 288 blocks on disk." << RARE !

18:32:46 punkman: I'm working on some bitcoind debug improvements, I'm losing count of all the different printing functions

18:33:25 pete_dushenski: "Block pruning works during initial sync in the same way as during steady state, by deleting block files “as you go” whenever disk space is allocated. Thus, if the user specifies 550MB, once that level is reached the program will begin deleting the oldest block and undo files, while continuing to download the blockchain."

18:33:35 pete_dushenski: ^some funky shit, this.

18:34:28 punkman: paving the way for bigger blocks?

18:36:03 pete_dushenski: the 'dev' aren't paving their way towards anything.
