06:07:35 funkenstein_: he's got five albums on there at the bottom, the one you were interested in is 傻瓜的情歌
06:13:55 funkenstein_: guy is all over the place lol, reminds me of manu chao, moondog, les claypool, david byrne...
06:15:59 funkenstein_: er actually looks like only two tracks from that album on here.. hmm
06:46:43 funkenstein_: and uh, i recommend extra cautious with that kind of nightlife 在上海
06:46:48 funkenstein_: !ud shanghai
06:47:30 funkenstein_: ;;ud shanghai
06:47:31 gribble: http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php%3Fterm%3Dshanghai | shanghai. Term describing a type of kidnapping.Back in the 17th and 18th century in back alleys behind orphanages and bars there were trap doors that were ...
09:10:01 pankkake: http://www.bbc.com/news/world-latin-america-38284485 Central bank data suggests there are more than six billion 100-bolivar notes in circulation, making up almost half of all currency
11:30:58 kakobrekla: lol again with this nonsense
11:33:48 pankkake: I don't know which euro bills to hoard anymore!
11:33:55 pankkake: (inb4 none)
11:39:42 kakobrekla: afaik the 500s will be valid for a long time to come
11:39:53 kakobrekla: you just wont be able to get new ones or smth
11:40:05 kakobrekla: just saying
12:31:43 punkman: the point is to make you declare or exchange them at some point
12:37:11 jurov: the 500euros were never in widespread usage, when you got one it was pita to spend it
12:37:47 jurov: so ECB is content to just keep them valid and stop issuing new ones
12:40:11 jurov: iirc they wanted similatly stop 100s and 200s, but maybe next time
13:07:03 kakobrekla: incidentally i think the only time i was dealing with 500s was about 10 years ago and was in fact coming from the underground economy
13:07:48 pankkake: you were a thug?
13:08:53 kakobrekla: i dont think thug is the right word
13:16:53 punkman: I'm guessing underground as in undeclared/untaxed
13:18:35 kakobrekla: lets just leave it at that :)
13:21:15 punkman: in local cash control non-news, if you wanna send money outside .gr you get 500eur per user per bank, but banks also have global daily/monthly limits, so depends on phase of moon when you can send what
13:22:00 kakobrekla: any service solving this via buttcoin?
13:22:05 kakobrekla: local bitcoins i guess
13:22:47 punkman: not really
13:31:29 punkman: min wage is less than 500eur anyway, and they can withdraw 420eur per week in cash, makes no difference to most peeple
14:27:30 jurov: in most cases creating bank account/company in estonia is more convenient than bitcoin
14:27:53 jurov: using the "e-citizenship" program you don't even have to travel there
14:28:13 punkman: I've heard you gotta visit
14:28:14 Framedragger: have you done it jurov? i've heard of their thing but iirc you are still required to physically go there to get things started, no?
14:28:17 Framedragger: ^
14:28:51 pankkake: Establish an Estonian company online. A physical address in Estonia is required to establish an Estonian company. An Estonian address may be obtained via an external service provider.
14:30:34 pankkake: kinda expensive
14:30:54 Framedragger: ah maybe you can sets up a 'physical address' in the same way that uk companies house requires a company address: go to website, obtain virtual office address for $smallsum, done
14:30:54 jurov: okay, so bank account only
14:31:18 asciilifeform: why estonia, why not, e.g., caymans.
14:31:32 Framedragger: (like, 10 or 15 quid a year, plus 10 or 15 quid a year to establish and maintain limited company in uk)
14:31:36 punkman: asciilifeform: harder to do bizness with caymans
14:32:23 Framedragger: free/cheap bank xfer across all eurozone, no fees for doing bzns across EEA, etc etc
14:34:21 jurov: ^ and it might even solve the access to cash problem
16:19:21 punkman: ;;tall

16:23:19 asciilifeform: punkman: forkforkfork
16:23:29 asciilifeform: what are these folx waiting for, why the 3year propaganda storm.
16:23:58 asciilifeform: clearly they have not been reading their kakobrekla .
16:28:03 punkman: had to come up with segwit first
16:28:18 punkman: and couple of failed attempts inbetween
16:31:11 Framedragger: ^ a friend works in that particular centre, apparently they deduct points when you go on sick leave; you are micromanaged to insanity, "why did you scan that thing twice, oh it was a bug on our end, well okay" (but many times a day), etc
16:31:34 punkman: the new "Nike sweatshop"
16:32:27 punkman: camping out in scotland during christmas period sounds pretty hardcore
16:33:32 Framedragger: yea.
16:33:35 kakobrekla: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=13-12-2016#1462587 < haha, when you best explanation 'why' is a lyling scamming bullshit salesman and propaganda artist you gotta come to your senses and figure out you are deluded
16:33:35 assbot: Logged on 13-12-2016 16:23:58; asciilifeform: clearly they have not been reading their kakobrekla .
16:35:34 asciilifeform: well if these folx had read their kakobrekla, would then know they have nothing to fear, can fork six times every morning before breakfast and bitcoin will roll over and die without any fight
16:35:40 punkman: I'm starting to enjoy alf's and kako's back and forths
16:36:19 asciilifeform: kakobrekla oughta call up mike hearn, who last i recall was drinking sadly in switzerland, tell him he has a chance
16:36:27 kakobrekla: asciilifeform something not happening can not be attributed to some other random thing happening
16:36:39 jurov: if these folx have read their mp would then know they have nothing to fear because He Said So
16:37:03 punkman: "it is, not does"
16:37:06 kakobrekla: jurov reading does not help, you need attentiveness.
16:37:22 kakobrekla: many people read the bible, but only idiots of the dpb calibre can think it has to do anything with reality
16:39:39 asciilifeform: for a radical-skeptic d00d, kakobrekla appears to be quite certain of what can or cannot be attributed to what
16:41:19 kakobrekla: for a mad scientist alf is quite mad
16:41:32 asciilifeform: i did, incidentally, wonder, back in the early days of schism, whether kakobrekla would end up 'own man' or instead mircea_popescu-with-sign-bit-flipped
16:41:38 asciilifeform: seems -- the latter
16:41:55 kakobrekla: im glad you got it all figured out!
16:42:10 asciilifeform: if i had people figured out, why would i bother talking to them.
16:42:22 kakobrekla: what can i do if you keep brining up this nonsense subject
16:43:12 asciilifeform: if kakobrekla had wandered off into, e.g., unified field theory, rather than gavinism, i dun think i would ever have occasion to bring it up...
16:43:16 kakobrekla: ;;bc,convert thanks
16:43:17 gribble: Error: 'thanks' is not a valid currency code.
16:43:54 kakobrekla: asciilifeform keeps blaiming ME for trying to correct him
16:44:00 asciilifeform: hah, farnell. kakobrekla is also making hardwares now ?
16:44:06 asciilifeform: where do i buy
16:45:31 kakobrekla: i dont think i ever sold any of my hw contraptions ever
16:45:46 kakobrekla: -ever ?
16:45:53 kakobrekla: more ever more better
16:47:04 asciilifeform: kakobrekla: it is, admittedly, a very different affair, to sell, than to make onesies for own use. but can be interesting in its own right.
16:47:28 kakobrekla: i would agree
16:47:49 kakobrekla: but also add that yours still looks like something not meant for use in the field
16:48:00 kakobrekla: at least not in the form you sell it
16:48:24 asciilifeform: kakobrekla: it is a deliberately minimal item.
16:48:33 kakobrekla: or maybe the pics were not representative of the shipped product
16:48:37 asciilifeform: they -- are
16:48:39 kakobrekla: ok
16:48:49 asciilifeform: not really consumer product. think of it as ~component~, like your video card
16:48:55 asciilifeform: rather than a desk device
16:48:56 punkman: enclosure probably costs more than rest of hardware, right?
16:48:59 asciilifeform: correct
16:49:02 kakobrekla: well dont worry i will NOT be making a nicer trng to sell
16:49:30 asciilifeform: kakobrekla: i wouldn't particularly worry, there are 100+ other rng
16:49:42 kakobrekla: cool
16:50:06 asciilifeform: incidentally schematics were published not long ago, if kakobrekla wanted to make ~identical~ rng, he also could.
16:50:21 kakobrekla: aha
17:01:47 kakobrekla: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=13-12-2016#1462593 < i thought nike preceded apples assembly lines
17:01:47 assbot: Logged on 13-12-2016 16:31:34; punkman: the new "Nike sweatshop"
17:09:45 kakobrekla: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=13-12-2016#1462604 < actually not only 'not help', its the thing that puts you in trouble in the first place
17:09:45 assbot: Logged on 13-12-2016 16:37:06; kakobrekla: jurov reading does not help, you need attentiveness.
