00:12:24 dexX7: kakobrekla: did you already receive your ips monitor? how is it compared to "some quality brand"?

00:15:58 kakobrekla: not yet, i think its gonna take a while.

00:16:43 thestringpuller: indoor positioning system?????

00:17:56 dexX7: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liquid-crystal_display#In-plane_switching_.28IPS.29 :)

00:17:57 ozbot: Liquid-crystal display - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

00:20:08 kakobrekla: not sure if i should get 2 or 3.

00:20:33 pankkake: are those >1080p?

00:20:39 dexX7: 1440p imho

00:20:50 dexX7: i don't have the links

00:21:09 kakobrekla: 2560x1440

00:21:17 dexX7: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Achieva-Shimian-QH2700-IPSMS-Edge-Eco-27-LED-2560x1440-AH-IPS-DVI-PC-Monitor/131033629039?_trksid=p2045573.m2042&_trkparms=aid%3D111000%26algo%3DREC.CURRENT%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D27%26meid%3D2660874548052918995%26pid%3D100033%26prg%3D1011%26rk%3D3%26rkt%3D4%26sd%3D251378161222%26

00:21:20 pankkake: I want a 2560x1600 ideally… I crave vertical resolution :)

00:21:25 pankkake: but those are rare

00:21:58 asciilifeform: pankkake: for vertical resolution, nothing beats 90 degree rotation.

00:22:13 pankkake: yeah, that's what I did at work. two 1080p rotated

00:22:21 pankkake: always intrigued people

00:22:22 dexX7: :D

00:30:44 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 8000 @ 0.00082095 = 6.5676 BTC [+]

00:44:37 FUDdealer: i'm selling high impact fud. /query.. if you are satisfied with my proposal, you pay

00:45:37 asciilifeform: http://www.thoughtcrime.org/blog/lavabit-critique/

00:45:37 ozbot: Moxie Marlinspike >> Blog >> A Critique Of Lavabit

01:10:40 BingoBoingo: I think I might have to give up on creating a GPG keypair with the Mac SE/30

01:11:25 asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: slow?

01:12:23 BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Key generation is still continuing. Either the entropy is really good or it is relying too much on virtual memory to try to accomplish this which... I think defeats the purpose if there are going to be a bunch of hard drive writes of the process.

01:12:39 asciilifeform: chances are, it's waiting for keystroke entropy.

01:13:09 asciilifeform: what's the os on that box?

01:13:44 BingoBoingo: NetBSD the 68k version

01:14:21 BingoBoingo: It might take up more room, but I'm considering giving one of these a go http://www.ebay.com/itm/SUN-Ultra-80-Server-Quad-450MHz-4GB-Memory-73GB-HD-/111200002029?pt=COMP_EN_Servers&hash=item19e4095fed

01:14:25 asciilifeform: run strace on the process, if it is blocked, and see where.

01:15:23 BingoBoingo: Thanks, I'll give it a try before looking into giving up on making an late 80's machine relevant again.

01:15:40 Vexual: you go girl!

01:16:09 BingoBoingo: I'll also try mashing the keyboard to generate some entropy

01:16:29 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [CBTC] 900 @ 0.00013745 = 0.1237 BTC [-]

01:16:37 Vexual: does it have a mouses?

01:17:25 BingoBoingo: Vexual: It's a Macintosh. Of course it has a mouse. This is the machine in question https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mac_SE/30

01:18:28 Vexual: i just wanted to say mouses

01:18:51 asciilifeform: dollars to doughnuts, it's blocking on entropy milking

01:19:32 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [VTX] 1 @ 0.293 BTC [-]

01:21:21 Vexual: http://vimeo.com/15351476

01:21:21 ozbot: Hold Fast on Vimeo

01:21:45 BingoBoingo: Fuck it, I'm just going to hit the off switch and read up on A/UX and see if there might be any way to build GPG on there.

01:22:09 BingoBoingo: That would probably also keep it more true to the "Vintage" theme

01:23:13 Vexual: sell it to a hipster and get a decent machine

01:24:33 nubbins`: ^ this, hipsters buy things

01:25:08 BingoBoingo: Vexual: The thing is there aren't many machines available that use so little bench space while not being x86 or ARM.

01:25:45 Vexual: yeah its a good choice

01:25:54 asciilifeform: entropy generation is the inevitable bottleneck here.

01:26:06 Vexual: shake the fucker

01:26:31 kakobrekla: why not x86 or arm again?

01:26:42 nubbins`: too commonplace to trust, i guess

01:26:43 dub: jesus an SE30

01:26:48 Vexual: coz paranoia

01:26:50 dub: what the fuck are you smoking

01:26:57 nubbins`: i wonder could like a game boy or nintendo DS or something generate gpg keys

01:27:05 Vexual: put your floppy in and out a few times

01:27:16 nubbins`: Vexual: that's what the lady said to the sailor

01:27:36 asciilifeform: none of this helps unless the system is actually programmed to gather entropy from said manipulations.

01:27:42 nubbins`: hm, ^

01:28:05 BingoBoingo: dub: Newports are what's being smoked.

01:28:08 Vexual: gather entropy from hipster jealousy

01:28:36 dub: smoking kills

01:28:40 nubbins`: http://www.dslinux.org/

01:28:40 ozbot: DSLinux - Linux for the Nintendo DS

01:28:42 BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: It seems like I might have to see if I can find the script that generates entropy from hookers and microphones from the fraudsters comments.

01:29:14 nubbins`: hipster jealousy is too uniform to be a good source of entropy

01:29:35 asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: random bits aren't hard to come by, but consumer hardware never included a ready means for doing so

01:29:56 asciilifeform: (until fairly recently, and we all know the story there)

01:30:09 nubbins`: ;;echo ^

01:30:09 gribble: ^

01:30:25 BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: So it seems. I actually feel lucky this dinosaur includes a co processor for floating point math.

01:31:01 asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: you don't need FP for gpg.

01:31:27 Vexual: youre right nubbins' im thinking of enthalpy

01:32:01 nubbins`: heh

01:32:10 nubbins`: and i just learned a new word

01:32:15 BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: I know, but the FPU helps when doing maths. One thing the SE/30 did well was run python.

01:33:22 asciilifeform: some maths, somewhere, but not gpg (or rsa in general)

01:33:34 BingoBoingo: Yeah, that is all huge int's

01:34:00 BingoBoingo: Vexual: If you want to do an imaging this is a thing https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pneumoencephalography

01:34:47 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 48150 @ 0.00082118 = 39.5398 BTC [+] {3}

01:35:00 thestringpuller: ;;echo the poop lives

01:35:00 gribble: the poop lives

01:35:11 asciilifeform: (cardano is perfectly happy with no FPU.)

01:39:04 Vexual: you gonna hack a scanner with an xray tube and hook it up to your old mac?

01:39:17 Vexual: totaly harsh bro

01:39:20 BingoBoingo: Well, I mean I've been using the SE/30 for non-crypto maths as well.

01:40:04 asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: why?

01:40:05 BingoBoingo: Vexual: Oh the X-ray was the least harsh part of pneumoencephelopathy. Consider the root words. Where is air going?

01:41:48 BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Mostly python scripts for modeling various things. Not usually useful things, but more as a self improvement thing.

01:41:54 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 5450 @ 0.00081581 = 4.4462 BTC [-]

01:42:03 asciilifeform: to develop the virtue of... patience?

01:44:17 BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Patience is a part of it.

01:45:01 asciilifeform: old hardware can be a joy; learn 68k asm, write something nice & clean. but python?

01:46:28 nubbins`: okay, so the poor sap who tried to buy one of my casascius coins at below face value on coingig sent me a "how do i know this isn't a scam?!" message

01:46:43 nubbins`: i politely informed him that the listing was removed 3 months ago and coingig keeps resurrecting it against my wishes

01:46:50 nubbins`: i then sent coingig a scathing email

01:46:59 nubbins`: so scathing, in fact, that my account doesn't exist anymore

01:47:04 nubbins`: AMAZING MARKETPLACE

01:47:41 BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: The thing is python makes it easy to write something. The joy though comes from !import (your bit of 68k asm) and gradually removing the python.

01:50:28 dub: wtf is a coingig

01:51:35 BingoBoingo: In other news apparently p=0.05 is no longer good enough http://arstechnica.com/science/2013/11/is-it-time-to-up-the-statistical-standard-for-scientific-results/

01:51:54 nubbins`: dub, it's like bitmit but even more of a piece of shit

01:52:03 nubbins`: because you can't even set the price of your items in btc

01:55:28 Vexual: statistical analysis of statitstical analysis. yay science

01:56:02 nubbins`: i got my lowest non-fail mark in statistics, 56%

01:56:17 Vexual: doesnt count

01:56:32 nubbins`: neither did my positive attitude

01:56:58 Vexual: how can you tell? you alm,ost failed stats!

01:58:40 nubbins`: i used a z table, duh

01:58:52 nubbins`: (that's a thing, right?)

01:58:59 Vexual: yeah, that works

01:59:32 nubbins`: heh

01:59:54 nubbins`: anyway, turns out you can get a degree in mathematics without having done more than a single stats course

02:00:34 Vexual: blindly accepting whatver your stats software says is the accepted model

02:00:42 BingoBoingo: nubbins`: That is because mathematics and statistics are different things, I've been told... At least by the mathematicians.

02:00:51 nubbins`: very true

02:00:55 mircea_popescu: ya!

02:01:03 nubbins`: there were three majors that fell under the umbrella of the math dept: pure math, applied math, and stats

02:01:25 nubbins`: in my infinite wisdom, i decided that pure math would provide me with the best job prospects

02:01:38 mircea_popescu: hahaha

02:02:48 nubbins`: i was chagringed to learn that the rest of the world takes "1+1=2" as an axiom

02:03:05 nubbins`: (and mildly displeased that it took four hours of lectures to prove it!)

02:03:25 dub: and now you're a professional artist

02:03:43 asciilifeform: nubbins`: took russel&whitehead a meter of bookcase to prove.

02:04:12 mircea_popescu: lol dub hasi t.

02:04:16 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 5400 @ 0.00081581 = 4.4054 BTC [-]

02:04:23 nubbins`: indeed he does!

02:04:30 nubbins`: there might be a moral in there somewhere

02:04:50 mircea_popescu: i have no idea how this guy can simultaneously believe in global warming but also understand subtle points about math and art.

02:04:52 nubbins`: asciilifeform: we had the benefit of history, we were able to gloss over some of the lead-up

02:05:09 mircea_popescu: i think he may be a professional troll.

02:05:23 nubbins`: professionals get paid ;)

02:05:35 Vexual: :)

02:05:43 dub: technically the internet is for trolling and I get paid to internet

02:05:46 mircea_popescu: professionals do a good job, whether for pay or pro bono

02:05:53 nubbins`: oh, fair enough

02:06:03 Vexual: are you double pro then mp?

02:06:35 Vexual: oh wait, i thought pro bono was something else

02:06:39 nubbins`: although on that tack, i'm a professional printer, not a professional artist ;)

02:06:59 assbot: Last 6 lines bashed and pending review. (http://dpaste.com/1459137/plain/)

02:06:59 mircea_popescu: !b 6

02:07:06 mircea_popescu: kakobrekla mostly for the "pro bono" thing :D

02:08:11 mircea_popescu: so i could write an article tit-led "normative heterosexuality for women, a guide" or else an article about good and bad uses of irc chans.

02:08:20 mircea_popescu: which would the crowd prefer to see first ?

02:08:38 dub: women are not hetero

02:08:56 Vexual: id like to read something about cake, whichever that fits ionto better

02:09:04 Vexual: or dragons

02:09:08 nubbins`: given that i'm really just here to mess with the signal-to-noise ratio, i'd like to see the latter

02:09:22 mircea_popescu: aite.

02:09:58 mircea_popescu: dub you are mistaken. it's not that women aren't hetero, it's that women eating out women is quite hetero.

02:10:18 dub: I thought about that possiblity as I typed

02:10:35 mircea_popescu: this is how the internet ends up broken

02:10:46 mircea_popescu: dubs think about the possibility as they rm -rf *internet

02:11:10 nubbins`: "Are you sure you want to send 'the internet' to the Recycle Bin?"

02:13:52 mircea_popescu: by the way, what's the ":3" emoticon mean ?

02:14:01 nubbins`: cat face

02:14:10 mircea_popescu: is it "my face is assshaped" or "my tongue is coming out directly of my eyes" ?

02:14:29 Vexual: Flambé Failure, mostache inverted

02:14:33 mircea_popescu: nubbins` like :} ? crooked smile ?

02:14:41 nubbins`: no, it's seriously the face of a cat

02:14:54 mircea_popescu: well presumably a 23 yo human typed it.

02:15:03 mircea_popescu: you saying rather than a young woman it's really a very old pussy ?

02:15:05 nubbins`: divide that number in half

02:15:12 Vexual: sacré bleu!

02:15:28 nubbins`: old pussies can still catch mice

02:15:31 nubbins`: "Hi Jon, Yes we spoke with the seller that told us that you had taken down all of your products so we thought you wanted your account closed so we went ahead and closed it, but we did not know that you were still using it."

02:15:37 nubbins`: once again, coingig: amazing company

02:15:37 assbot: AMAZING COMPANY!

02:15:49 mircea_popescu: nubbins` you should ipo it on cryptosticks.

02:16:08 nubbins`: sticks and binds

02:17:10 nubbins`: what i should do is roll a large "jazz cigarette" and walk to the bank

02:17:39 BingoBoingo: I wonder how long until someone IPOs S.MPOE on SticktoCrypt

02:18:05 nubbins`: StryptoCocks

02:18:10 mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo dudes had done their research, teppy had been inactive on forum for a while

02:18:21 nubbins`: letter transposition is seriously one of my true joys

02:18:31 nubbins`: wordplay in general, really

02:18:40 KRS1: /me

02:19:04 BingoBoingo: Hadn't Kumala been inactive on the forum as well?

02:19:47 nubbins`: it's amazing how quickly people get pissed off when you immediately clatter off the acronyms of the sentences they say

02:19:47 assbot: AMAZING COMPANY!

02:20:18 mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo lmao.

02:20:43 mircea_popescu: someone should ipo cryptostocks on cryptotheother thing

03:47:15 mircea_popescu: In a 1956 letter to J. Edgar Hoover, a former member of the Army Intelligence Service stated that Presley was a "definite danger to the security of the United States" because he had driven girls and boys mad!

03:47:15 mircea_popescu: The author further criticized Elvis's "motions and gestures, like those of masturbation or riding a microphone," and added that "Indications of the harm Presley did ... were two high school girls (...) whose abdomen and thigh had Presley's autograph. ... There is also gossip of the Presley Fan Clubs that degenerate into sex orgies." The letter concluded with the assumption that, based on eyewitness reports, Presley was

03:47:15 mircea_popescu: "a drug addict and a sexual pervert."

03:47:30 mircea_popescu: i hope that any future prosecutions of bitcoin include rock&roll caselaw.

04:00:20 asciilifeform: venezuela == cia project, public service reminder that communism -> no plasma tvs. you read it here 1st...

04:01:20 mircea_popescu: you know there's no need of divine intervention to explain why idiots jumping off buildings go splat.

04:01:44 mircea_popescu: similarly, there's no need to involve the world's least competent secret service to explain why chavez went nowhere.

04:02:02 asciilifeform: normally when you get millions of idiots happily jumping, rather than the odd one or two, somebody's built a convenient ramp.

04:02:09 mircea_popescu: nope.

04:02:27 mircea_popescu: i tell you, if cia were involved the only difference would be a ton of leaked "secret" documents

05:18:43 BingoBoingo: Diablo-D3: how many DMC shares for an AM share nao

05:19:19 Diablo-D3: 11:1.

05:19:26 Namworld: According to the way it was presented (group purchase), I'd say we were both scammed. But feel free to consider it otherwise.

05:19:39 Diablo-D3: BingoBoingo: problem is, only two people have enough shares to trade in

05:19:48 Diablo-D3: and they are MIA

05:20:06 Diablo-D3: Namworld: I was trolling, dont get panties in a twist

05:20:07 Namworld: I just need to find how to finance 10000 BTC now. Also, treatment for the septic shock BingoBoingo provoked.

05:20:28 Diablo-D3: he keeps saying hes going to pay out whats left and never does

05:20:53 BingoBoingo: Diablo-D3: I thought you were a market maker handling both sides and offering quotes

05:21:02 Namworld: I'd hope so about yochdog. But I don't see why people wouldn't be angry at me.

05:21:02 Diablo-D3: BingoBoingo: the company shut down.

05:24:14 kakobrekla: so 2x is based on the all time low of 0? i get it nao

05:26:14 Namworld: 2x is based on the amount of BTC he received, apparently

05:26:26 Diablo-D3: kakobrekla: yet I made good on the investment either way.

05:26:37 Diablo-D3: kakobrekla: its better than what everyone else did, ran with the money and never looked back

05:26:57 kakobrekla: not everyone did that.

05:27:14 Diablo-D3: pretty much everyone did

05:27:18 Diablo-D3: I cant think of anyone that didnt that isnt AM

05:29:37 Diablo-D3: yeah, giga was a scam

05:29:54 Diablo-D3: and because yours still exists means we cant verify if its a scam or not

05:30:29 Namworld: There might be a few more assets which I don't recall but kept paying

05:30:37 Apocalyptic: X-BOND too

05:30:44 Namworld: I'm strictly speaking of others than AM who didn't outright run.

05:30:55 Namworld: X-BOND is new, no?

05:31:44 Apocalyptic: not really, depends on your definition of new I guess

05:32:41 Namworld: Isn't it on Havelock? Few months old only.

05:32:46 Apocalyptic: 2013-08-02

05:32:47 Namworld: Was never on GLBSE to start with

05:32:53 Apocalyptic: you're right, somehow i thought it was way older

05:32:59 BingoBoingo: Wait, is Havelock still a thing?

05:33:02 Apocalyptic: sure

05:33:15 Namworld: Yes

05:33:16 Apocalyptic: they got acquired by some Panama fund

05:34:02 Namworld: I infer the owner acquired himself through a Panama registration

05:34:06 BingoBoingo: Isn't Panama just AMAZING country? I mean Noriega?

05:34:34 Namworld: Noriega?

05:34:44 BingoBoingo: Yeah, 1980's shit

05:35:13 Diablo-D3: heh

05:35:19 Diablo-D3: dont bother bringing up post-glbse assets

05:39:11 Diablo-D3: it wasnt ambiguous

05:39:25 Diablo-D3: let me make it clearer

05:39:33 Diablo-D3: "gawker is cancer, dont post links to their blogs in here"

05:41:59 BingoBoingo: "BingoBoingo: we dont need proof of that" I will gawker is cancer.

12:52:31 ThickAsThieves: vegans that work on computers and hobby on computers

12:52:34 ThickAsThieves: simple as that

12:54:25 Diablo-D3: truffles: its because they eat grains

12:54:26 Diablo-D3: which make you fat

12:54:29 BingoBoingo: I am reserving picture lest the internet hate me, because this cat has socks

12:55:13 truffles: i know i could shed some lbs by giving up bread

12:56:15 Diablo-D3: truffles: grains means not just bread

12:56:30 truffles: ya but thats what i eat almost daily

12:56:47 Diablo-D3: but pasta, almost any alcohol, corn, soy

12:56:53 Diablo-D3: no seed oils either

12:57:04 truffles: gotta give up the bread for the alcohol

12:57:04 ThickAsThieves: tell me more, i want to hear everything there is to know about paleo, twice

12:57:23 Diablo-D3: if its not olive oil or coconut oil, you shouldnt be using it

12:57:30 truffles: pfff

12:57:33 truffles: its all oil to me

12:57:42 Diablo-D3: truffles: alcohol isnt paleo either, but if you're going to get drunk, at least do it on wine

12:57:46 truffles: also doesnt olive oil burn faster

12:57:55 Diablo-D3: no peanut oil either, peanuts are a legume, and legumes are your doom.

12:57:59 truffles: WINE???

12:58:11 Diablo-D3: olive oil doesnt burn faster, it just has a lower smoke point

12:58:41 ThickAsThieves: uhh

12:58:47 ThickAsThieves: the smoke is not the start of the burning

12:58:49 ThickAsThieves: ?

12:58:56 Diablo-D3: ThickAsThieves: he said faster

12:59:01 Diablo-D3: its not a fuel in a car.

12:59:01 ThickAsThieves: right

12:59:12 ThickAsThieves: he meant burns at a lower temp

12:59:17 Diablo-D3: then yes, it does

12:59:23 Diablo-D3: but you shouldnt be reaching insane temps either

12:59:26 Diablo-D3: you're not deep frying shit

13:01:43 truffles: dunno, tastey dish?

13:01:48 Diablo-D3: hrm

13:01:56 mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo what i did was, melt homemade butter (it really kicks ass this thing), very lightly fry mushrooms-garlic-shrimp

13:02:23 mircea_popescu: then fish it all out, add flour, then add milk to make the sauce. then dump the pasta (which had been cooking all through) and the fished out material and serve.

13:02:30 BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: Morels might be the only distinctly 'mrican dish you are close to it nao.

13:02:33 Diablo-D3: oh dear god what mircea_popescu is describing ..... goddamnit mircea_popescu

14:20:38 BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: I didn't take 7 years of pharm school credits for no reason.

14:20:52 mircea_popescu: so why would anyone put dmso in bullets ?

14:20:53 asciilifeform: we had a beautifully-educational incident with DMSO

14:21:00 mircea_popescu: or did i do a crapass job of skimming that ?

14:21:02 BingoBoingo: (+/-3 years for self denial)

14:21:25 Diablo-D3: asciilifeform: DMSO is on my list of shit I dont fuck with.

14:21:34 BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: DMSO doesn't need anything as crass as bullets

14:21:38 asciilifeform: lab girl had round-the-clock headaches for six months. went to every conceivable doctor, brain scans, the whole shebang.

14:21:45 asciilifeform: nobody found anything

14:21:55 Diablo-D3: asciilifeform: DMSO container leaking?

14:22:00 asciilifeform: finally i notice she's wearing latex gloves.

14:22:04 asciilifeform: porous.

14:22:25 Diablo-D3: asciilifeform: wtf ARE the gloves of bunny suits made of?

14:22:27 BingoBoingo: I doubt it was the DMSO itself, what was the solute in the DMSO

14:22:28 asciilifeform: we had candidate compounds (pharma dev) dissolved in, guess what.

14:22:46 mircea_popescu: that chick owes you.

14:23:11 asciilifeform: probably would've noticed eventually

14:23:25 BingoBoingo: I bet the real villians were the candidate compounds.

14:23:33 mircea_popescu: well sure. probably the fed will notice qe does nothing eventually.

14:23:36 asciilifeform: without doubt

14:23:41 asciilifeform: DMSO per se is harmless.

14:24:08 asciilifeform: (in anything like a realistic absorbed dose)

14:24:48 BingoBoingo: DMSO is harmles except is it the only vehicle that may carry high molecular weight drugs through the skin without risking unfolded proteins.

14:24:58 asciilifeform: right

14:25:20 Diablo-D3: so, you know what the most disturbing commercial Ive seen for awhile is?

14:25:45 BingoBoingo: I bet id Diablo-D3 show up he is going to try to turn this into some cargo sult bullshit

18:07:47 nubbins`: the design is identical tho

18:08:20 nubbins`: all my gold so far is numismatic

18:09:47 mircea_popescu: no gold is "numismatic" unless you actually have renaissance italian issues or something

18:12:32 chaang-noi: 420, so who is lighting up in celibration? :)

18:13:26 nubbins`: mircea_popescu: coin collectors disagree, and as long as they continue to do so...

18:14:08 mircea_popescu: the entire value of the investment is predicated on circumstances changing of such nature that they can't continue to do so.

18:14:31 mircea_popescu: think about it. the "numismatic" value of bullion coins exists for as long as overcapitalised clueless americans stil exist.

18:15:27 nubbins`: the overcapitalised clueless always have and will always exist, although the nation to which they call home changes over time

18:17:15 nubbins`: although, to be fair, i buy numismatic coins because they appeal to my aesthetics

18:18:51 nubbins`: and i buy bullion because it's an investment

18:19:19 nubbins`: occasionally these two overlap, like with the Chinese 1oz panda coins

18:19:43 mod6: i would think you'd want it for its melt value, not its rarity

18:20:38 mod6: so when you have to cut one into quarters or whatever for tp... that guy wont care if its rare or not, only if it melts pure.

18:21:03 nubbins`: well, i have numismatic coins and vanilla bullion

18:21:11 nubbins`: and cash, and btc, and property, and skills, etc

18:21:13 nubbins`: diversity!

18:21:40 mod6: aight

18:21:44 mod6: :]

18:22:11 nubbins`: coincidentally, this whole collecting thing started when i was about six years old

18:22:22 nubbins`: i found a Cyprus 3 mil coin in a handful of change

18:22:50 nubbins`: located Cyprus on a map, and dutifully hid away my newfound treasure for future days when it'd be worth a million bucks

18:23:01 asciilifeform: metals aficionados, do you run density tests on what you buy?

18:23:47 nubbins`: no, altho i don't buy bars

18:24:23 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform the idea of coins is mostly that joe schmoe doesn't need any gear.

18:24:32 mircea_popescu: kinda why actual investors shun coins

18:24:34 nubbins`: ^

18:24:38 mod6: actually, im no aficionado, but density tests don't work to determine if filled with tungsten afaik. (gold and tungsten have nearly identical density) -- typically i've heard that the smaller the denomination of coin, the safer because they're harder to forge.

18:24:39 nubbins`: (^)

18:24:48 asciilifeform: you at least need the 'density spoon'

18:24:58 mircea_popescu: mod6 at the size of a coin, the cost of tungsten filling exceeds the value extracted.

18:25:13 nubbins`: i should just put "^" on a timer

18:25:15 mod6: ahh. that then too.

18:25:40 nubbins`: you can buy tungsten wedding rings

18:25:40 asciilifeform: if nobody tests, you don't even need tungsten, old-fashioned lead will suffice.

18:25:45 nubbins`: popular thing these days

18:26:08 nubbins`: altho impossible to cut off, so if you find yourself in the ER, they'll be shattering your ring with a set of locking pliers

18:26:28 mod6: don't get married?

18:26:30 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform actually at the size of a coin, recognising lead fillings with a density meter is not trivial

18:26:38 nubbins`: mod6, too late

18:26:40 mircea_popescu: not that it can't be done, but you need steady hands and eyes

18:26:44 nubbins`: (i chose titanium)

18:26:55 asciilifeform: the traditional method is the 'spoon' that tips over

18:27:01 asciilifeform: has a 'go/no-go gauge' in it, too

18:27:10 nubbins`: tell me more of this spoon!

18:27:45 asciilifeform: example: http://picture.yatego.com/images/47b45967967651.8/big_gcb0-kqh/goldmnzen-tester---gold-coin-balance.jpg

18:28:02 nubbins`: cool

18:28:04 asciilifeform: middle-right hand: thickness gauge

18:28:17 mircea_popescu: nubbins` tungsten's durity is why it's not worth filling coins with it.

18:28:59 asciilifeform: ultrasonic is the gold standard test if you don't want to drill/melt the sample.

18:29:18 nubbins`: mircea_popescu: from what i've heard, it's a massive pain to work tungsten

18:29:28 mircea_popescu: it is.

18:29:44 mircea_popescu: and the cost is per item (ie, making a 1/2kg filling or a 5 gram filling costs roughly the same)

18:29:54 nubbins`: nod

18:30:03 nubbins`: all kinds of fancy metals being used for rings these days. cobalt is another one

18:30:04 asciilifeform: t is pyrophoric.

19:47:31 ThickAsThieves: that sounds so... flamboyantly scamtastic

19:48:04 ThickAsThieves: “We don’t want to be the sheriff of the Bitcoin community. We just want to create an ecosystem of clean addresses.”

19:48:10 ThickAsThieves: it hurts

19:48:44 lurkwingduck: "clean"

19:49:02 ThickAsThieves: isn't this idea like fundamentally flawed?

19:49:10 kakobrekla: i will shoot the sheriff and maybe the deputy too.

19:49:30 ThickAsThieves: if the tracking is centralized, and they change the data internally

19:49:37 lurkwingduck: Especially considering how the security/anonymity minded people use address.

19:49:40 ThickAsThieves: then u fukt?

19:50:21 mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves basically this is a lot of pretense around the reputation scam people try to run on the forum

19:50:37 mircea_popescu: whatever was that dork's name that had a gambling list where he blacklisted everything (except scams) ?

19:51:20 Namworld: So that's like if every time a US dollar bill was used for a drug transaction, it became "void"? Good luck with that.

19:51:44 ThickAsThieves: well not exactly that

19:52:07 ThickAsThieves: they dont wanna make any money or police anyone or anything bad bro

19:52:26 mircea_popescu: Namworld no, more like "if you say avalon is pretty scammy we will write down your address on our list of things we hate"

19:52:30 lurkwingduck: They just want to point fingers at "bad" addresses

19:52:43 ThickAsThieves: they just wanna sit on top of the blockchain and see if coins come out

19:53:03 mircea_popescu: they just know vcs are retarded and are trying to milk it while it's good.

19:53:45 lurkwingduck: Haha mircea_popescu that is most likely the exercise.

19:53:56 ThickAsThieves: Trust us!

19:53:58 Namworld: yeah, I meant allow businesses to refuse "bad" addresses, which I suppose it means tracking "unclean" coin. Which is a pretty awful thing to do.

19:54:29 Namworld: Maybe they should go propose to the USG to make bills with sensors that explode when they're used in an illegitimate transaction. This way the USG could have only clean money circulating.

19:54:34 mircea_popescu: Namworld notrly. great way for businesses run by idiots to sink themselves.

19:55:00 Namworld: You're right... actually a good filter

22:25:40 Namworld: To my hotmail

22:25:52 mircea_popescu: maybe your hotmail has been around.

22:25:55 Namworld: Which is only public on the who.is on namworld.com

22:26:13 Namworld: Which mean people go a long way around to reach me instead of contacting the correct and obvious person

22:26:29 mircea_popescu: nubbins` send Namworld a tshirt with "other people get hotwives and all i have is this lousy hotmail"

22:27:29 Namworld: What's wrong with people?

23:03:09 mircea_popescu: he wants me to boycott "us bitcoin companies" meanwhile his blog runs on google. just that...
