01:46:12 asciilifeform: they weigh what, 50 gram, and don't vibrate

01:46:12 mircea_popescu: fuck that.

01:46:21 mircea_popescu: you keep to the fucking standard. buncha inept farmhands.

01:46:32 asciilifeform: in all srs i have no idea where that came from

01:46:34 asciilifeform: and why.

01:46:45 asciilifeform: what prevented the ps from being in the normal human place ?

01:47:04 mircea_popescu: why. cuz we had to pretend like every inept colony is populated by like humans and shit.

01:47:14 asciilifeform: who even makes a pc case locally

01:47:23 asciilifeform: i don't think i have ever seen one that was not chinese to the hilt

01:47:35 asciilifeform: with the possible exception of my pa-risc and sgi boxen

01:47:54 mircea_popescu: these schmucks.

01:48:02 mircea_popescu: there's no fucking way the azns would have made this thing.

01:48:03 asciilifeform: (the cases of which were solid steel, with tempest mesh - copper, gilded fingers! on all contact interfaces, pure golden toilet)

01:48:08 mircea_popescu: they're not stupidly creative enough.

01:48:36 asciilifeform: i'm surprised your vendor did not also roll his own ps, out of an old soviet shaver or something

01:48:57 mircea_popescu: i did not investigate the matter closely. it's not even impossible.

01:49:00 asciilifeform: (... have you ~looked~ inside the ps!)

01:49:50 asciilifeform: at any rate i will buy a pc made in argentina some time after i buy a ru car.

01:49:59 mircea_popescu: ru cars weren't that bad.

01:50:08 mircea_popescu: and note that i only bought the case

01:50:14 mircea_popescu: i don't buy fucking "pcs".

01:50:32 asciilifeform: that fella who used zaporozhets chassis and toyota engine also 'only bought case'

01:50:38 mircea_popescu: lol

01:50:48 *: mircea_popescu kinda liked the old volgas.

01:50:55 asciilifeform: (can you even 'buy pc' any more ?)

01:50:56 mircea_popescu: mostly because crashed one as a 9yo and... nothing happened.

01:51:04 asciilifeform: l0l

01:52:33 asciilifeform: i'm pretty sure i have the last steel pc chassis here (not counting rackmounts, i do not like them in residential quarters because of the fans)

01:52:48 asciilifeform: will prolly keep using it until dead

01:53:04 asciilifeform: (until ~i'm~ dead, that is. chassis cannot die)

01:53:38 mircea_popescu: this was made of the worst zamac.

01:53:44 asciilifeform: ick

01:53:47 mircea_popescu: im not even sure what it is, zinc and cowshit most likely.

02:02:01 asciilifeform: is starbux Officially licensed as 'money transmitter' ?!!!11111

02:02:03 ben_vulpes: "but yeah give me those two bucks"

02:02:09 mircea_popescu: "In other words, although the flood of ontologic emotion was Hegelian through and through, the ground for it was nothing but the world-old principle that things are the same only so far and not farther that they are the same, or partake of a common nature"

02:02:20 ben_vulpes: straight to tip jar

02:02:24 mircea_popescu: right, right, you gotta be stupid to follow stupid and if you aren't stupid naturally lsd might help you.

02:06:02 ben_vulpes: dood you gotta look into the nightmare that is the olcc

02:06:19 ben_vulpes: "oregon liquor control commission"

02:06:58 ben_vulpes: (hey, it's a bank holiday. half the staph even bothered to show up, and those left as soon as they fixed the fucked up builds they shipped on friday, leaving me and $bzprtnr alone with the tequila and org chart)

02:08:10 mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo for the record, i'd have said some rather stronger words than wj.

02:08:11 ben_vulpes: mircea_popescu: they now control marijuana in this derpy little province too

02:08:53 BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: He wasn't in the position to smash all of the cockroaches surrounding himself

02:10:48 asciilifeform: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=19-01-2016#1376256 << so i discovered that the lift this morning only goes to nth floor and no higher ($firm is on n+1th)

02:11:18 asciilifeform: because... holiday

02:12:55 asciilifeform: 'open it.' 'sir, this is a SEEEK0000R3 building!111' 'i work here.' 'you need a key!111' 'i can call the boss, want to make a new friend ?' ~grunt turns magic key in the lift~

02:13:00 asciilifeform: stairs locked.

02:13:11 mircea_popescu: is that even legal ?!

02:13:15 asciilifeform: (they only ever open from the inside)

02:13:25 asciilifeform: it is legal with the magic lock that only opens from inside.

02:13:38 mircea_popescu: heh.

02:13:41 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 120050 @ 0.00052582 = 63.1247 BTC [+] {3}

02:14:38 asciilifeform: tower is mostly lawyers iirc.

02:14:52 mircea_popescu: everything's mostly lawyers.

02:15:08 asciilifeform: has the flavour of faux luxury that tends to go with it, too

02:15:27 ben_vulpes: thirty-second inch veneers

02:15:31 asciilifeform: (gilded doorknobs, etc)

02:15:42 mircea_popescu: lol alf has seen true luxury down by casa rosada, ain't buing into wash dc lawyer buildings!

02:16:01 trinque: could wedge the magnetic doors open

02:16:19 *: ben_vulpes not engaging in wannabe red team wankery, this wine is over and am out

02:16:24 *: mircea_popescu used to force the derps working in the few ro ones to come the fuck out to meet him, as he wasn't going into that shit.

02:16:30 asciilifeform: interestingly the last few towers i slaved in had a peculiar tradition, male toilet would have a normal door, female - locked

02:16:30 mircea_popescu: really put a damp on the spread for many years.

02:16:50 mircea_popescu: i almost always use the girls room.

04:33:43 ben_vulpes: at least i can update my blog

04:33:47 phf: there "was", there was a standard package (require 'cl) that various parties were trying to kill. stefan monnier spent his emacs maintainer tenure deprecating, and i think succeeded. now you're supposed to use cl-lib, to the point that elisp goes out of the way to not highlight various cl forms

04:35:16 phf: first -> cl-first, defstruct -> cl-defstruct, etc. shitgnomery

04:35:58 ben_vulpes: but that's just because elisp completely lacks namespacing facilities, phf, there couldn't possibly be any sour-grapes malice at work!

04:37:33 phf: of course, what if things clash!! lets break 20 years of code, so that alice m. queerfem is not triggered by symbol clashes

04:48:28 phf: shitgnomes held an emacs conference, complete with code of conduct https://emacsconf.github.io/emacsconf2015/ , names on that page of projects and people are the usual suspects. organizers are sacha chua and john wiegley, who is the current emacs maintainer.

04:48:28 assbot: EmacsConf 2015 Planning Doc ... ( http://bit.ly/23bwPe0 )

04:49:45 phf: so in case anybody was under a false impression that emacs is going to remain a trusty engineer workhorse for much longer..

04:59:02 thestringpuller: phf: i've used VIM since I learned linux. #VIM4lyfe

04:59:06 mircea_popescu: basically, "let's get all the people who aren;'t involved in X and this bothers them in a room together and see if we can fuck up x" is the standard for "us cultyure" anyway

04:59:25 mircea_popescu: thestringpuller can't really program in it.

05:01:46 thestringpuller: it just takes more effort.

05:02:44 phf: thestringpuller: i've used vim from about 98 to 2002 and have no problems with it, but the whole vi vs emacs thing is silly. vi is a text editor, emacs is a lisp machine. there are some substitutes hemlock, mit scheme's edwin, climacs, but nothing with this much live ecosystem.

05:04:10 thestringpuller: lol climacs. that's a good name.

05:04:34 thestringpuller: i may learn emacs one day just haven't had the motivation.

05:04:50 thestringpuller: espcially since I'm technically still learning VIM.

12:38:03 asciilifeform: jurov: ever see the '5k' panels ?

12:38:40 jurov: no?

12:38:55 asciilifeform: there are already several vendors supplying these

12:39:17 mircea_popescu: ie 5k pixels wide ?

12:39:18 asciilifeform: but i don't have one, it is my understanding that you cannot drive it with a fanless gpu

12:39:23 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: aha

12:39:31 jurov: i know so far. but they are either 28" or $$$ + new gpu in either case

12:39:57 mircea_popescu: the last time i had a fanless gpu most of the girls i know today were still virgins omaigerd.

12:40:06 asciilifeform: i will NOT use a fanned gpu.

12:40:09 mircea_popescu: ...

12:40:20 mircea_popescu: why use a fanned cpu ?

12:40:31 asciilifeform: i'd throw those out also if i could.

12:40:36 mircea_popescu: ...

12:40:41 asciilifeform: fucking hate the noise.

12:40:44 asciilifeform: always hated it.

12:41:02 mircea_popescu: so build one of those submerged rig things.

12:41:05 punkman: 40" inch for 3840 x 2160 sounds a bit big

12:41:14 asciilifeform: (iirc this is in the logz) i DID experiment with water, for years

12:41:21 asciilifeform: just to reduce noise

12:41:42 mircea_popescu: what water, are you a poorfag ? oil.

12:41:42 asciilifeform: punkman: seems like you are describing a tv set ?

12:43:20 shinohai: I wonder if I could sell olive-oil cooled computers. Market the oil as being trampled at precise temperatures under the feet of certifiable virgins. Increases the cooling properties.

12:43:27 asciilifeform: anyway submerging is nontrivial (electrolytic caps soak up your coolant and bloat, then burst) and you can also forget about repairs or upgrade

12:44:01 asciilifeform: likewise submerged cooling works great for, e.g., mains transformer outdoors, but for 'point source' of heat like cpu, requires circulation pumps, which... noise

12:44:30 asciilifeform: i considered it, yes

12:44:36 asciilifeform: a decade ago, even.

12:44:58 asciilifeform: it worked ok for cray because he ~designed for it~

12:45:06 asciilifeform: pc crapola - isn't.

12:45:10 mircea_popescu: you can for one thing use convection.

12:45:46 mircea_popescu: shinohai olive oil is actually not terrible for this role. just, prohibitively expensive.

12:45:59 asciilifeform: electrolytic caps soak, burst

12:46:02 asciilifeform: what part of this is unclear.

12:46:05 mircea_popescu: you caulk them.

12:46:19 mircea_popescu: superglue all the things.

12:46:19 asciilifeform: go, caulk the 2mm ones, aha.

12:46:21 asciilifeform: i'll wait.

12:46:24 mircea_popescu: THEN submerge them in pesto.

12:46:45 asciilifeform: something like 400 of them on my mb alone

12:46:57 asciilifeform: and in what liquid are we to drown the spinning hdds ?

12:47:07 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform just pour some caulk on the upface of the mobo, let it be.

12:47:20 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: caulk does not thermoconduct well.

12:47:30 mircea_popescu: get silvercaulk :D

12:47:36 asciilifeform: the other thing that you will find, if you do this, is that... the parasitic capacitance nails you.

12:47:41 asciilifeform: recall permeattivity ?

12:47:47 mircea_popescu: no, because see, olive oil.

12:47:50 mircea_popescu: this is why it's good.

12:50:11 mircea_popescu: nah, it has to be sealed. it's inert if it can't oxidate.

12:50:23 jurov: what about virgin tears?

12:50:30 mircea_popescu: those are lubricants not coolants.

12:50:47 jurov: oh, these for hdd then

12:51:43 mircea_popescu: technically that's not even on pogo

12:51:50 asciilifeform: at any rate, the actual 'non-poorfag' thing... exists. it is a copper hedgehog, looks a little like a substation transformer, with MACHINED cavity to mount the mb, cpu, hdd in. 100% convection.

12:51:58 asciilifeform: but we're talking about half a tonne of cu.

12:52:29 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform no we're not. the OTHER thing you can do is plug one of the ends of those heat inverter units into it. whatever the fuck they call them.

12:52:31 asciilifeform: afaik this was never ~commercially~ available, there was - briefly - an aluminum thing from zalman

12:53:41 mircea_popescu: yes but there's also thermodynamic equilibrium. you only get liquid phase condensation in some cases on the curve.

12:54:28 asciilifeform: the other thing is that peltiers are laughably inefficient, and you are then stuck trying to cool the hot end

12:54:59 mircea_popescu: kakobrekla he has bat hearing, which is why he can feed himself on mosquitoes in the dark.

12:55:36 kakobrekla: laptop fans arent silent

12:55:46 mircea_popescu: i can hear the thinkpad.

12:55:54 asciilifeform: silent fan is a lulzy contradiction in terms

12:55:58 asciilifeform: the motherfucking air is MOVING

12:56:04 mircea_popescu: i could faintly hear it, then i had it cleaned for my sins, now i can distinctly hear it.

12:56:06 asciilifeform: ever hear of turbulence ?

12:56:08 mircea_popescu: but hey, at least it cools better.

12:56:37 kakobrekla: at 200 rpm the only thing you can hear is bad bearings

12:56:43 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform sooner or later you'll have to face the fact that the turbulence other people get isn't like the turbulence you get.

12:56:55 mircea_popescu: like in those cartoon "rain cloud 2x2 follows guy around"

12:57:07 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i get quite a bit, i use boards with >1 cpu socket even

12:57:07 kakobrekla: and i have done away with bad bearings

12:57:14 kakobrekla: it did cost a fortune but hey

12:57:28 mircea_popescu: kakobrekla if i recall the calculations correctly the principal harmonic should be ~285 hz if you 200rpm

12:57:42 asciilifeform: kakobrekla: i have fluid bearing fans here, can hear them just fine

12:57:48 mircea_popescu: i doubt he can hear below 15khz or so

13:01:47 mircea_popescu: it occurs to me, you could just get some of that aluminum foil flexible tubing stuff, plug the case in and have the vented done in the other room.

13:02:10 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: this is louder still

13:02:24 mircea_popescu: well no, you serpentine the tube.

13:02:25 asciilifeform: the correct recipe when one has other rooms is to run the displays over fiber

13:02:34 asciilifeform: and have the machine far, far away.

13:02:37 asciilifeform: as symbolics did

13:02:40 mircea_popescu: also this.

13:02:41 kakobrekla: asciilifeform it has a fan it just doesnt run it

13:02:49 kakobrekla: so its not fanless.

13:02:52 mircea_popescu: put the big iron in the basement. check it out, BingoBoingo vax lives!

13:03:08 asciilifeform: kakobrekla: i run at 90-100% load on a typical day

13:03:35 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i've intended to do this for 15 years, but it requires a dwelling with multiple stories

13:03:44 kakobrekla: get a bigger one and it will run at lower relative load :)

13:04:08 asciilifeform: kakobrekla: if pc ps came in 20kW, i would...

13:04:11 mircea_popescu: for the record, sed 's/<[^>]*//g' takes just about 1k seconds to purge a 6gb pile of webcrud into 1.5gb of pressed juice.

13:04:35 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform you got no basement ? i thought you had a house not flat

13:04:42 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: it is a flat house.

13:04:44 mircea_popescu: o wait, swamp.

13:05:18 mircea_popescu: what do you mean "flat house"

13:05:20 asciilifeform: kakobrekla: the basic problem is that there are no miracles, semiconductors have a temperature ceiling, the heat has to leave as quickly as it appears, or meltdown

13:05:24 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: 1 level

13:05:34 mircea_popescu: but it's a house, no ? it necessarily has a roof

13:05:46 asciilifeform: aha

13:05:51 kakobrekla: very high efficiency helps

13:05:56 mircea_popescu: so you got an attic.

13:05:58 asciilifeform: has an attic, which is entirely unsuitable for electronics

13:06:05 mircea_popescu: whyssat ?

13:06:18 asciilifeform: (boiling hot in the summer, mega-condensation in the winter, not hermetically sealed either)

13:06:24 mircea_popescu: bwahahah

13:06:30 mircea_popescu: us technologee ?

13:06:34 asciilifeform: understand, attics exist for insulation

13:06:59 asciilifeform: so a properly-constructed one would be ~worse~ place to park cpu

13:07:03 mircea_popescu: depends whose. but anyway - you hopefully rent this sad hovel, not own it

13:07:13 asciilifeform: i don't 'own' anything

13:09:03 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform you know i actually did the same thing ? mid 90s to mid 00s, i didn't evne own one.

13:09:06 asciilifeform: other, B: 'have some money'

13:11:05 asciilifeform: anyway none of the thermal problems are a thing on a dirigible, which comes with free airflow.

13:11:09 asciilifeform: so mircea_popescu does not need any of this.

14:44:52 copypaste: So archive.is's view of /b/ is not comparable to the #b-a log, which represents everything

14:44:54 mircea_popescu: but people can't fucking code.

14:45:08 mircea_popescu: copypaste true.

14:45:32 mircea_popescu: honestly, chans have to be toilet paper, who the hell is going to waste the bw/hdds for it otherwise.

14:45:44 copypaste: Indeed, I came to that conclusion independently

14:45:55 mircea_popescu: however... a wot-based chan, now that may be interesting.

14:46:11 mircea_popescu: you could technically run a chan off v.

14:46:15 copypaste: How could it work?

14:46:26 copypaste: I could help make one if you have an idea

14:46:40 copypaste: Would it still be anonymous ?

14:46:57 mircea_popescu: well, you could go two ways with it. one'd be, subscription driven, like a sort of twitter. one can see any content of people whose sigils they imported and nothing else.

14:46:59 copypaste: I don't understand how anonymity and the WoT could intersect in a meaningful way

14:47:13 mircea_popescu: the other would be push driven - people encrypt their photos to the keys they want to see them and no others.

14:47:24 mircea_popescu: neither of this would be anonymous - it would be pseudonymous.

14:47:28 mircea_popescu: anonimity is for idiots.

14:47:32 copypaste: ah, I see. So like Reddit then

14:47:54 mircea_popescu: either way a random cs-illiterate third party would not see anything.

14:47:59 copypaste: I've actually never even heard of a chan with forced usernames

14:48:00 mircea_popescu: so like twitter-reddit on sane-tor

14:48:16 copypaste: Much less forcing GPG keys

14:48:17 mircea_popescu: copypaste how are they forced ? you run gpg and make a key. whatever it comes out.

14:48:21 mircea_popescu: can make one key per post if you want.

14:48:52 mircea_popescu: ideally you replace the browser entirely, also. run as a sort of torrent.

14:48:55 copypaste: I see. It could have an option then to see posts not in your WoT

14:49:05 copypaste: Then to see posts in your Level 1 WoT, Level 2 only and so on

14:49:09 copypaste: I think it's a cool idea

14:49:12 mircea_popescu: depends which model you choose. if people encrypt their output, there's jack you can do

14:49:36 copypaste: No need for encryption, perhaps as an option only. Signing is just as well.

14:50:17 copypaste: If I get a WoTchan working, I'll link it here.

14:50:28 mircea_popescu: did you read the part about fuck the browser, also ?

14:50:41 copypaste: If I have I don't recall

14:50:48 mircea_popescu: <mircea_popescu> ideally you replace the browser entirely, also. run as a sort of torrent. <

14:51:14 mircea_popescu: just fork gnutella or whatever to serve as your basis. add a render engine, and you're g2g.

14:51:35 mircea_popescu: no longer need to host servers, bother with "laws" and similar bullshit. if people like your shit they'll run it.

14:51:42 copypaste: Not bad

14:51:44 mircea_popescu: if not, a well. less bw.

14:51:50 copypaste: Gnutella did work well

14:51:55 mircea_popescu: but you and the people who like it can STILL run it.

14:53:03 mircea_popescu: basically, the correct way to implement this, is to have a "universal" key and have people encrypt to whatever keys they want. if they include the universal, then it's public. if they don't, then only whoever they encrypted to can see it.

14:54:16 mircea_popescu: and now V also becomes a chan soft.

14:57:37 mircea_popescu: copypaste it'll take a while to implement, you'll have to pull in gpg too, and some other shit. but once done it does obsolete current chanology. i can't conceive who or how could run a chan anymore on anything else.

14:58:13 copypaste: I especially like the part about no centralized hosting

14:58:38 copypaste: I have a friend who is now working for fluffypony and Monero on adding I2P to that coin (perhaps the work is already finished)

14:58:41 mircea_popescu: it's really not THAT hard to do, in the sense that all the needed parts already exist, even if not perfect.

14:58:53 mircea_popescu: so it's not one of those "shit me a micron" sort of jobs.

14:58:54 copypaste: But before he was doing that, he was making a distributed chan using the NNTP protocol and Tor/I2P

14:58:57 fluffypony: copypaste: psi?

14:59:01 copypaste: Yes

14:59:07 fluffypony: oh he's awesome

14:59:16 fluffypony: he's not working for me, he's working with us :)

16:05:30 mircea_popescu: the idea isn't to "surf websites" and "easy upload and download". the idea is to replace the motherfucking browser altogether, so that a chanpage is created out of discrete resources requested from peers exactly like the browser works but without touching any sort of web anything.

16:06:21 ascii_butugychag: reduced to gossipd, no ?

16:06:24 ascii_butugychag: *reduces

16:06:32 mircea_popescu: certainly very close.

16:06:47 mircea_popescu: anyway, you don't have to even parse html and all that bullshit - because your site template is fixed.

16:06:59 mircea_popescu: so it kills the browser and everything web, all the way down.

16:07:48 mircea_popescu: and honestly doing away with this particular bowdlerization of the idea of freedom where sites "can change" is such a great win just by itself...

16:15:07 mircea_popescu: something like this is fucking obvious, even to the lowliest derp : there is no concept of "wordpress theme" in the fucking code, and if you want to "skin it" you eitgher write one or, as the derp case usually is, go to a repository and load one you like. nobody goes "hey, we should be able to decide what wordpress theme is used to display this article IN THE FUCKING ARTICLE".

17:39:40 gernika: It has other problems as well, namely spam, which it was explicitly "designed" to prevent.

17:40:08 mircea_popescu: spam shouldn't be a problem in a sane implementation of the above-discussed design

17:40:36 punkman: retroshare does p2p forums with gpg, but I wouldn't really trust the thing

17:40:37 mircea_popescu: broadly it seems more like a sort of confused yahoo messenger implemented by teenagers than anything.

17:41:25 phf: key exchange is hard, but i designed this easy to use automated schENALRGE YOUR PENIS NOW!!

17:41:31 mircea_popescu: punkman notably, the one difference between this and gossipd is that it really doesn't require so much trust. the paramount question isn't to make it possible for derps to safely exchange child porn or whatever, the paramount question is to make it possible to run a chan without having to bow down to an isp providing server space.

17:41:54 mircea_popescu: at least in my understanding.

17:54:03 mircea_popescu: i really don't blame the kids themselves, they're being raped under the guise of education, and in two major ways : one to create a wholly delusional concept of "originality" which is so badly wound up in self-contradiction it causes most brains to shut down ; the other is more pervasive, they are prevented from socialising normally in a myriad ways and as such become incapable to work with others.

17:54:23 mircea_popescu: while these idiocies may well serve societal and political goals of wrinkled up old women / usg, they have no room in the world.

17:54:24 ascii_butugychag: i'm not seeing #2

17:54:30 ascii_butugychag: they socialize very, very well

17:54:48 ascii_butugychag: but ~inside the leprosorium~ yes

17:54:52 mircea_popescu: they can't go to a random bar, they can't talk to random people.

17:55:04 mircea_popescu: socialisation is an ability to interact with the other , not an ability to tolerate the boring.

17:55:44 ascii_butugychag: but the latter is precisely what happens in 'random bar with random people'

17:55:47 ascii_butugychag: tolerate the boring.

17:55:49 mircea_popescu: not at all.

17:56:05 gernika: Roommate worked for adultfriendfinder.com. Did not leave his room, ever. And smelled like it.

17:56:23 ascii_butugychag: gernika: nowhere is it written that a hermit must stop washing.

17:56:42 gernika: Bathroom is down the hall, outside of the room.

17:56:43 mircea_popescu: ascii_butugychag there's a problem of positive feedback loops.

18:01:24 phf: hermit is not the same as hobo. i saw a hermit in india once, he lived in a cave and was well groomed within the limits of what was available to him. he smelled infinitely better then the bums that were begging in the street. for all practicle purpose american nerds are "hobos" with housing

18:02:27 mircea_popescu: phf you know there's an entire classification of the ... idle members of society. hobo travels, will work. tramp won't work, but travels. bum doesn't travel. etc.

18:04:09 mircea_popescu: a punk is, of course, the eromenos in the typical pressure-driven homosexual relationships they engage in. a hooker's not the same as a harlot and so on and so forth

18:09:58 phf: yeah, i'm lost with the terminology. my view into the lazy world is through hipster bums, like crust punks and gypsters, and they are not very precise with their terminolgoy, or else they latch on to some word and aggressively use it to self identify

18:11:38 punkman: what's below the bum?

18:11:39 mircea_popescu: well... you know, random technician in factory may well not know wtf he's doing also.

18:12:07 mircea_popescu: punkman the bum is not violent. generally "below" would go towards more violence.

18:12:38 mircea_popescu: a knave, well antiquated by now, would technically denote a "child of better means who is now destitute and agressive out of survived entitlement". a word lafond's looking for.

18:12:53 ascii_butugychag: violent man is.. not yet ~spent~. bum - is spent.

18:13:18 mircea_popescu: there is some merit in this.

18:14:05 mircea_popescu: female side is similar. whore is just that, end of road. hooker tries to grab you with a well placed line, still has that much fight left in her.

18:14:13 phf: with this classification crust punks and gypsters mostly fall into tramp category

18:14:31 mircea_popescu: imo they're scamps. (juveniles trying to live off recycling)

18:14:44 mircea_popescu: sorta common behaviour in youth of all mammals.

18:16:57 ascii_butugychag: at the bottom you have folks who no longer care how many kg of shit is attached to body

18:17:08 mircea_popescu: when the weigher for the worth in pounds of flesh comes around, it god damned weighs.

18:17:09 ascii_butugychag: yes!

18:17:44 ascii_butugychag: and was it mircea_popescu who had the article with 'the inescapable kid in school who smells of amoeba'

19:20:04 thestringpuller: the hearnia is removed, the ecological contamination remains

19:20:32 ascii_butugychag: the thing that always bothered me about bitcoin is that miners are basically opportunistic vermin

19:20:47 ascii_butugychag: and a machine that relies on cockroaches in whatever capacity, is what kind of machine.

19:21:15 mircea_popescu: anyway. i've moved my tx fee from 0.0001 (~4 cents) to 0.00022 (bout a dime, give or take).

19:23:49 BingoBoingo: ascii_butugychag: Hey, a fallback plan is a fallback plan

19:23:52 mircea_popescu: so in other news, seeing how the next halving happens to more or less coincide with the expected next usg attempt to "save" bitcoin,

19:24:00 mircea_popescu: i imagine we'll be hearing a lot about how, and to quote,

19:24:05 ascii_butugychag: mircea_popescu: 'life on earth' is not an instrument, i don't push buttons on it and expect a timely response

19:24:21 mircea_popescu: "Then knowledgeable people complain that the evil financial network is heading for disaster, that the government sponsored enterprises are about to cause a "collapse of the total financial system", as Wallison and Alan Greenspan complained in 2005, the government debates shrinking the evil government sponsored enterprises, as with "S. 190 [109th]: Federal Housing Enterprise Regulatory Reform Act of 2005" but they find

19:24:21 mircea_popescu: easy money too seductive, and S. 190 goes down in flames before a horde of political activists chanting that easy money is sound, and opposing it is racist, nazi, ignorant, and generally hateful, the recent S. 190 debate on limiting portfolios (bond issue supporting dud mortgages) by government sponsored enterprises being a perfect reprise of the debates on limiting the issue of new assignats in the 1790s."

19:24:31 mircea_popescu: ascii_butugychag neither is bitcoin.

19:25:32 mircea_popescu: your "push button, i matter" mental model is only applicable here inasmuch as you're hypocritical enough to go "i planted tree, and got an apple, therefore am in control" sorta thing.

19:25:36 copypaste: mircea_popescu: i've heard some saying that miners won't "allow" the halving to occur because they would never "vote for" something so against their "best interest"...these people don't understand the social contract behind bitcoin of course, or even that miners don't vote on anything but who gets 25BTC

19:25:38 mircea_popescu: otherwise... no. zero control and no buttons.

19:26:18 mircea_popescu: copypaste no, "these people" who aren't in any sort of sense people are merely laying the ground work for "the next battle", as they perceive the string of endless humiliations and buttrapes they receive.

19:26:49 mircea_popescu: it's kinda funny to me, because the vermin they regard as their progenitors, various "social rights activists" and whatnot benefitted from a context where each defeat made eventual victory more likely.

19:27:15 BingoBoingo: ^ Populist "Hegelianism"

19:27:16 mircea_popescu: the situation here is EXACTLY opposite, but they obviously lack anything other than the zombie drive.

19:27:18 mircea_popescu: braaaaainzzzz

19:28:01 copypaste: as far as i'm concerned at this point any bitcoin hardfork is an altcoin and every softfork is a way to give free coins to miners at some later date

19:35:12 mircea_popescu: somehow that's the one hardfork nobody thought to mention.

20:38:57 mircea_popescu: gotta say it's pretty impressive how f2pool manages to make 976.5x blocks.

20:39:49 BingoBoingo: I sometimes wonder if F2Pool's English language PR strategy is simply a method to get people to leave them the fuck alone.

20:41:38 ascii_butugychag: gotta love this homogeneous mass of 'foss', that 'came from nowhere', written by 'no one'

20:41:44 mircea_popescu: quite.

20:41:54 ascii_butugychag: like buying a briquet of pressed cockroaches at the butcher's.

20:43:58 mircea_popescu: aaand 27.64mb worth of mempool

20:43:59 ascii_butugychag: 'Quoting directly from its manpage, the keyrings facility is primarily a way for drivers to retain or cache security data, authentication keys, encryption keys and other data in the kernel.' << i don't recall asking for this to be a thing.

20:44:08 ascii_butugychag: anybody ?

20:44:18 mircea_popescu: course it was more like 120 earlier

20:44:47 mircea_popescu: ascii_butugychag im sure it was consensus comunity and all that.

20:44:55 mircea_popescu: innovated.

20:45:04 ascii_butugychag: mircea_popescu: trb mempool is 25MB perhaps... up to five minutes after warmup ?

20:45:12 ascii_butugychag: and then into the stratosphere

20:45:29 ascii_butugychag: so turns out mircea_popescu has a mempool garbagecollector, l0l

20:45:42 ascii_butugychag: wish he'd share. even the pseudocode.

20:46:12 *: BingoBoingo has small mempool thanks to 100kilo satoshi per kb inclusion requirement

20:46:21 *: mircea_popescu doesn't actually know how this magic worx.

20:46:41 ascii_butugychag: whatever pedagogic point mircea_popescu was trying to make by not giving the answer away, imho is made...

20:46:47 mircea_popescu: but there's only 9006 txn / 28.00 mb worth of mempool atm altogether.

20:46:51 mircea_popescu: da hex do you see ?

20:47:08 ascii_butugychag: mircea_popescu: yeah but in trb that 25MB goes with 500MB of frag gap

20:47:23 mircea_popescu: ah, noboduy's counting actual ram.

20:47:29 ascii_butugychag: ah then ok

20:47:30 mircea_popescu: this is you know, "sum total bytes as if they went into blocks"

20:47:43 mircea_popescu: all from the blockspace perspective.

20:48:01 ascii_butugychag: makes sense.

20:48:22 mircea_popescu: so far my response to THAT problem was... buy moar ram.

20:48:54 mircea_popescu: which is how come i even know people who can digest the concept of stuffing 256gb in a box.

20:49:00 ascii_butugychag: one does run out of holes for it, eventually

20:49:09 mircea_popescu: well we're not there yet.

20:49:42 mircea_popescu: but iirc this was mentioned and discussed a year ago, part and parcel of all the "Scaling" bs is a sheer cluelessness as to what a node actually is / what it does / how it looks.

20:50:45 ascii_butugychag: the other thing is that the operations involved in processing a new tx are O(function of mempool size)

20:51:01 mircea_popescu: there's a few things like that.

20:51:06 ascii_butugychag: n log n for the worst, iirc

21:26:28 ascii_butugychag: to frame the conversation as being particularly 'about genes' is a deliberate and carefully-constructed memetic gambit by monsanto et al

21:27:55 trinque: !up ascii_butugychag

21:28:47 ascii_butugychag: the automatic implication is that, e.g., tasteless tomatoes are a-ok so long as they are ~selectively bred~ for truck endurance rather than 'gmo'-d, for instance

21:29:40 ascii_butugychag: the other thing is that the 'gmo' hysterial supports an entire hipster pseudoindustry of 'organic'

21:29:44 ascii_butugychag: *hysteria

21:29:46 mircea_popescu: so would you be happy if we move on from "genetically engineered" to "monsanto engineered" ?

21:29:55 mircea_popescu: really the objection is the particularly inept "technology" used.

21:30:32 ascii_butugychag: it would not especially matter if they had spiffy and reliable technology.

21:30:36 ascii_butugychag: the ~end~ is evil.

21:31:03 ascii_butugychag: the purpose - cheap food at all costs.

21:32:15 ascii_butugychag: as described in an old mircea_popescu article, it is from ~this premise~ that the other atrocities flow

21:32:29 ascii_butugychag: the premise that 'we need cheaper, above all else, food, so that all may eat'

21:32:51 mircea_popescu: actually im writing an article that's apropos. brb

21:32:58 ascii_butugychag: in that light monsanto is just a devil conjured up by the premise.

21:38:05 ascii_butugychag: pete_dushenski: i sure as fuck buy. but also understand that i am stuck paying for voodoo claptrap at the same time as the reduced poison, you cannot bid for them separately

21:45:04 ascii_butugychag: who said 'every.'

21:45:10 pete_dushenski: sounds like a make-work project for the slave army you don't have

21:45:39 pete_dushenski: w/o provenance, there is only every.

21:45:49 ascii_butugychag: it would be regardless. because provenance guarantees nothing, the soil in which perfectly traditional tomato grew could have strontium, etc.

21:46:16 ascii_butugychag: and obviously we cannot dispense with provenance. but i must point out that it is a ~proxy~

21:46:22 ascii_butugychag: rather than the thing actually sought after

21:46:27 ascii_butugychag: does this make sense ?

21:48:39 pete_dushenski: looks to me like you're trying to cleave uncleavables

21:48:57 pete_dushenski: like you want organic spherical carrots made in attic

21:49:18 ascii_butugychag: they are only uncleavables because of tech limitations

21:49:22 ascii_butugychag: rather than philosophically.

21:49:31 pete_dushenski: here we go...

21:49:40 ascii_butugychag: if i could grep a tomato, they would be entirely cleavable.

21:49:51 pete_dushenski: like autonomous cars and benevolent robo-lords ?

21:50:16 danielpbarron: what ascii says about food in d.c. is also true in ct. I must go to the stupid hippy store in which most of the aisles are full of overpriced overhyped nonsense just to get the meat and veggies that actually taste alright and aren't poisoned. At least these hippy stores are frequented by the yoga pants wearing chicks though. The megastores are full of fat zombies; I'd pay extra just to not have to shop around them

21:50:18 jurov: there is no economic incentive for your food controllers not to cheat

21:50:21 ascii_butugychag: i happen to see reasoning about items glued together by happenstance as if they were intrinsically the same, as lame.

21:53:19 jurov: now go try to ennumerate all of them

21:53:42 ascii_butugychag: that's sorta what your mouth is for

21:53:51 ascii_butugychag: it - ordinarily - works.

21:54:38 pete_dushenski: danielpbarron: yoga pants chicks are in both kinds of stores here, but i guess our "normal" grocery stores in alberta are fucking deeeelux in 99.999% of the world. the hippie stores here aren't so bad but their staffs are beyond useless and the sanitation is definitely sub-par.

21:55:12 ascii_butugychag: pete_dushenski: try to understand the perspective of inventor. for x,xxx years churchmen prattled on about sex and reproduciton 'cannot cut apart'. and now they can go get stuffed.

21:55:32 pete_dushenski: save-on-foods by my place is like the fucking kadewe in berlin

21:55:41 ascii_butugychag: the whole point of engineering is to cut apart the happenstance-linked crud from what you actually want.

21:55:43 jurov: ascii_butugychag: but your tech solution stems from not having to taste everything, or?

21:56:15 jurov: and if you can't detect adulterants, why do you think you can detect all nutrients?

21:56:19 jurov: by taste

21:57:07 ascii_butugychag: jurov: it's a start.

21:57:10 pete_dushenski: ascii_butugychag: inventor made domes and pills, yes, but 'rhythm method' ?

21:57:37 pete_dushenski: not that 'rhythm method' is anywhere near perfect, but better than 'always is a good time'

21:57:53 ascii_butugychag: aha the 'don't do it when actually horny' method

21:57:58 ascii_butugychag: mega-tech.

21:59:03 mircea_popescu: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=19-01-2016#1377599 << this is rank nonsense. "list all the things that aren't in this box"

21:59:11 mircea_popescu: you can't even list them, you're gonna test for them too ?

21:59:27 ascii_butugychag: mircea_popescu: fortunately the question is never about the set of ~all possible~ things

21:59:30 mircea_popescu: ascii_butugychag even if grown exactly the same in every way, which is what ceteris paribus means

21:59:31 ascii_butugychag: but specific persilences

21:59:34 ascii_butugychag: *pestilences

21:59:38 mircea_popescu: not specific, is the problem.

21:59:45 mircea_popescu: 1940 list wouldn't include thaliomide.

22:00:01 ascii_butugychag: was speaking of produce

22:00:02 mircea_popescu: they recently discovered that it's quite likely alzheimer's is a prion based infectious disease,

22:00:06 mircea_popescu: spread of all things through root canals

22:00:14 mircea_popescu: (the tools aren't disinfected to that standard)

22:00:23 ascii_butugychag: uncle al had a piece on this

22:00:23 mircea_popescu: so... you don't know.

22:00:25 ascii_butugychag: circa 1990s

22:00:43 *: danielpbarron has never had a cavity or tooth pulled :D

22:00:53 ascii_butugychag: but yes, discussion was ~specifically~ re: known adulterants

22:01:05 mircea_popescu: i'd take provenance over "known list"

22:01:14 mircea_popescu: because i know a lot more about a clean spot than you';ll know about your list.

22:01:21 mircea_popescu: "my folk lived here 2400 years"

22:01:23 mircea_popescu: beat that.

22:01:43 ascii_butugychag: i can think of a few very gamma-backgroundy places where 'my folk lived 2400 y'

22:02:01 mircea_popescu: nevertheless, the argument is made. now it's a matter of quantification.

22:03:09 jurov: ascii_butugychag: do you approach this way the software you're going to use too? just check for known adulterants?

22:03:36 ascii_butugychag: jurov: that would be hilariously stupid ?

22:03:57 jurov: same with food

22:04:37 ascii_butugychag: seems like nobody grasped the actual point i was trying to make - where the provenance is a means to an end (clean tomato) rather than the end

22:05:02 ascii_butugychag: but i can't think of any reason why anyone should give a fuck re: the difference presently, so count me as sold

22:05:10 mircea_popescu: <ascii_butugychag> jurov: that would be hilariously stupid ? << loller.

22:05:12 jurov: i did grasp it but, that's why i asked about software

22:05:16 mircea_popescu: but alfie! MITIGATITS!

22:05:29 ascii_butugychag: thing is, ascertaining anything useful about software is undecidable

22:05:44 jurov: same with food, again

22:05:46 mircea_popescu: you think too highly of chem analytics. also undecidable.

22:06:16 ascii_butugychag: depends, again, what you're looking for (specific item, or general toxicology - which ~is~ undecidable)

22:06:34 mircea_popescu: are you looking for working software or merely software that never croaks on like 666 ?

22:06:48 ascii_butugychag: i once tried to get a few american biochemists interested in a portable tox panel for mushrooms

23:13:07 mircea_popescu: stamps are also "a real thing". original ponzi was a stamps deal.

23:14:07 SamPatt: Ponzi schemes are just fraud, there's nothing of value being done. What I'm trying to get across is that with Bitcoin something of value is actually happening (transactions).

23:14:25 mircea_popescu: anyway, you have more patience than i do, the nth bhagwan chowdhry is really no different from the n-1th

23:14:40 mircea_popescu: SamPatt transactions also happened with the original ponzi.

23:14:51 *: ascii_butugychag bbl.

23:16:58 SamPatt: Only transactions relating to the scheme, correct? Perhaps I'm not familiar with the original scheme itself, but as Ponzi scheme is regularly defined today it's just taking in new money to give returns to older players. There's no transactions occurring except to continue this fraud.

23:17:56 mircea_popescu: but those are in point of fact transactions.

23:18:10 mircea_popescu: you know the excellent "Color of bits" essay ?

23:19:45 mircea_popescu: aha

23:20:18 SamPatt: Unless he's proposing that all Bitcoin transactions are only being done to perpetuate further fraud then it's not a ponzi. Since I use Bitcoin for transactions that are for other purposes, it's clearly not ponzi

23:20:42 copypaste: who is arguing that it is in here?

23:21:03 copypaste: or are you just arguing against some strawman opponent SamPatt ?

23:22:01 thestringpuller: cazalla: LOL! "Nigga u gay."

23:22:03 mircea_popescu: but you can't distinguish transaction from transaction. what know you of its meaning ?

23:22:41 mircea_popescu: (in the other view : all currency is always and necessarily a ponzi scheme. and "fraudulent" in a sense.)

23:23:30 mircea_popescu: arguing with some idiot that said "bitcoin is a ponzi scheme" is a waste of time. the relevant point is that Bitcoin is less of a ponzi scheme than the us dollar is.

23:29:04 copypaste: ah ha, but tearing shouldn't be seen without smooth scrolling

23:29:11 mircea_popescu: derps not looking for solutions, looking for handouts.

23:29:17 *: danielpbarron nods

23:29:41 cazalla: copypaste, i'm probably using the wrong word (smooth scrolling) to say what i mean

23:30:08 punkman: buZz: lol

23:30:14 mircea_popescu: lol win. she's got nice tits anyway.

23:30:15 trinque: cazalla: v-sync prolly

23:30:26 cazalla: trinque, nah, it's off

23:30:32 buZz: ^_^ i just bought one just looking around

23:30:48 mircea_popescu: sluts drive conversion, who knew!

23:31:17 buZz: i can use another channel to idle in, do you mind?

23:31:20 mircea_popescu: anyway, i'ma bbl.

23:31:35 mircea_popescu: no buZz. if you want to be able to voice register your pgp key with assbot.

23:31:47 mircea_popescu: otherwise idling is free.

23:32:07 shinohai: ;;ticker --market all

23:32:09 buZz: why no btc key

23:32:09 punkman: !s zipit

23:33:22 buZz: lol cpumining sha256 :)

23:34:06 danielpbarron: can't encrypt messages to a btc key

23:34:12 buZz: danielpbarron: yeah you can

23:34:15 buZz: oh

23:34:19 buZz: wait, no

23:34:22 punkman: can't encrypt to btc address

23:34:23 buZz: only sign

23:34:29 punkman: you can encrypt to key

23:35:06 buZz: but its about authentication right, so even with signature i could proof i am me for i have this address

23:35:16 danielpbarron: and also because not everything needs to be the same thing, and also simply because.

23:35:26 buZz: :)

23:35:45 danielpbarron: it's way easier to authenticate via decryption

23:36:03 pete_dushenski: !up SamPatt

23:36:09 buZz: i like how bitcoin has all these clusters of people, with all very different societal structures and narratives

23:36:25 buZz: i'll stay pgpless, do as you wish ;)

23:36:55 punkman: buZz: why don't you like pgp?

23:37:06 danielpbarron: buZz, s'ok you need to lurk for 6 months anyway; by the end of that you'll either have left or have a key

23:38:33 buZz: punkman: i just dont like to change routine

23:39:20 thestringpuller: slack is so shitty. the logging is completely ineffective. oh and they want you to pay for extra logs? i can't even...

23:39:44 shinohai: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=19-01-2016#1377901 <<< Ethereum supporters are just plain insufferable.

23:41:23 punkman: /me hopes for "P" in 6 months

23:41:34 trinque: ^

23:41:43 pete_dushenski: shinohai: pretty much

23:42:08 pete_dushenski: punkman: do you add a space before '/me' or is your irc client b0rked ?

23:42:22 punkman: I don't

23:42:29 gernika: thestringpuller: I can't fathom slack. There are already a ton of manager friendly centralized IRC services out there.

23:42:33 trinque: /fix punkman

23:42:41 pete_dushenski: heh

23:48:49 punkman: I have a suggestion for an irc-bootstrap replacement in TRB. UDP torrent tracker announce, only takes a couple UDP packets, code's pretty simple. Recent client was using this in a small app, kinda cool.

23:50:52 linton_s_dawson: I'm looking to research the "v" thing you've bee talking about but searching for the letter "v" in the logs is obviously not working that well. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

23:51:13 thestringpuller: linton_s_dawson: the mailing list

23:51:22 punkman: yes, good point about single character naming of projects

23:51:59 danielpbarron: linton_s_dawson, http://wiki.bitcoin-assets.com/the_real_bitcoin << the instructions here involve using V, and you'll also end up with a working bitcoind

23:52:01 assbot: the_real_bitcoin [bitcoin assets wiki] ... ( http://bit.ly/238YcVW )

23:54:20 linton_s_dawson: I'll read up on that now, thanks. Also, interesting to see you support (or at least are not against) a new PoW that will destroy most miners.
