00:49:23 mircea_popescu: cazalla eulora item.

00:52:17 *: adlai sighs

00:52:38 adlai: trinque: pls to compare http://deedbot.org/deed-375398-2.txt and http://dpaste.com/3H6RR87.txt

00:53:28 assbot: Successfully unrated deedbot-

00:53:54 mircea_popescu: people anmd their down jones fixation.

00:54:18 adlai: hey it urned us a buck dinnit?

00:55:00 mircea_popescu: trinque other than the silliness of trying to force people to do things, the more general problem with not publishing code is that it creates a world of perverse incentives for one,

00:55:09 mircea_popescu: sooner than later you'll find yourself chasing your tail because of it.

00:56:40 trinque: I'd probably be a lot more willing to shoot the guy a tarball without the antics

00:56:55 adlai: deedbot-: http://dpaste.com/34TTQ2X.txt

00:57:08 adlai: ... well at least it respects revocations!

00:57:29 adlai: !rated trinque

00:57:29 assbot: You rated user trinque on 28-Apr-2015, with a rating of 2, and supplied these additional notes: highly educational, taught me not to trust unsigned text: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=20-09-2015#1280535.

00:57:30 mircea_popescu: well that;s kinda people publish it rather than passing it along on a p2p basis. saves them the effort of evaluating everyone's antics.

00:57:38 adlai: trinque: what can i say, drama is a lifestyle

00:58:58 *: adlai wonders what's wrong with 34TTQ2X.txt, curl|gpg eats it just fine

00:59:58 mircea_popescu: prolly the comments.

01:00:33 adlai: you mean the quoted public key block getting interpreted as a valid one?

01:00:35 mircea_popescu: adlai what is your notion of "never" and "another message" anyway.

01:00:42 mircea_popescu: not like pgp has these notions.

01:00:52 mircea_popescu: that, yes.

01:01:10 adlai: those notions are uncontrovertial, neither is "forseen"

01:01:21 adlai: ie, if another message is signed, the key was cracked

01:01:36 adlai: (or dignork asked for a challenge)

01:02:04 mircea_popescu: how do you know if it was signed after or before.

01:02:35 adlai: lolkay, s/sign/deed/

01:02:44 mircea_popescu: ah.

01:02:51 mircea_popescu: well it makes a difference, it's not obvious at all.

01:03:40 danielpbarron: step 1) sign contract step 2) recieve payment of some sort step 3) revoke key and claim "cracked" when counterparty tries to make an appeal

01:04:06 adlai: idiot counterparty should've deeded it!

01:08:37 adlai: trinque: this is rather weird now

01:08:59 *: adlai has another idea...

01:09:09 trinque: nah that one looks right; maybe I busted something earlier.

01:16:03 trinque: adlai: wtf, you revoked that key

01:16:05 trinque: lol

01:16:09 adlai: of course i did.

01:16:13 trinque: and it didn't work.

01:16:30 adlai: free testing is worth what you pay for it!

01:27:53 trinque: including a dangling header where the footer is chopped off

01:28:12 trinque: and my regex is currently quite happy to do so for wrapped messages

20:33:59 thestringpuller: yea. so you get 0.0012 btc/day, and while you sell shit with the computer it kinda buffers it.

23:38:13 mircea_popescu: btw, asciilifeform you know who invented "teledildonics" rite ?

23:38:34 asciilifeform: nope

23:38:38 mircea_popescu: "HTML is precisely what we were trying to PREVENT" guy.

23:38:45 mircea_popescu: ted nelson.

23:38:50 asciilifeform: l0l

23:38:58 mircea_popescu: he's right, too. it is.

23:39:16 *: asciilifeform owns pretty much the whole of nelson's collected output, on dead tree

23:39:31 *: asciilifeform still working his way through it, sporadically

23:39:46 mircea_popescu: (not for the reason he cites, or at least not exactly, he fails to understand the deep rpoblems with "rights management", (which are what "version management" is in an edulcorated form)

23:40:14 mircea_popescu: but otherwise, yes, link rot and no bijection. who the fuck wants this piece of shit.

23:41:23 mircea_popescu: hint : the "expectations" about "what the internet is" which were build in the 90s by people about as informed or inclined to think as the current "blockchain technologies" crowd, are predicated on a MAXIMAL EXTENSION of an optimal ideal nelsonian network.

23:41:24 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 25901 @ 0.00074452 = 19.2838 BTC [+] {3}

23:41:36 mircea_popescu: they have zit to do with the html&javascript internet of today.

23:41:46 BingoBoingo: That Lopp fellow shilling for 21 nao

23:41:47 asciilifeform: the micropayment thing has to be taken in context. it was 1960s and his vision was arguably an improvement of 'if you want to make money from thinking, have a job in usg academia'

23:41:49 BingoBoingo: https://archive.is/8Wb1W

23:41:50 assbot: The 21 Bitcoin Computer : bitcoinxt ... ( http://bit.ly/1FbViaw )

23:42:05 asciilifeform: *improvement over

23:42:31 mircea_popescu: all that shit re culture and whatnot, all the pretense of wikipedia to relevance, the whole kaboodle : an overstated maximal output of an optimistic evaluation of a technological base that a) never actually existed in fact and b) has meanwhile been substituted by a provably worse alternative IN ALL THE POINTS

23:42:51 mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo he was always 21 "evanghelism" afaik.

23:43:01 asciilifeform: the other thing that folks often forget is that neither nelson nor anybody else seriously expected illiterate derps to get their hands on the machines

23:43:01 BingoBoingo: Ah

23:43:13 mircea_popescu: this is how vc circus works, spend 10-20mn on "a venture", part of which goes to "a respectable voice" etc.

23:43:14 asciilifeform: any more than schoolchildren are given bulldozers to play with

23:43:36 mircea_popescu: in the 60s ?

23:43:47 asciilifeform: aha

23:43:52 mircea_popescu: in the 60s they didn't even realise their own children will be marrying into illiterate for lack of alternative.

23:44:10 asciilifeform: 'computer' had stopped being a job title, but was still very much a ~place~

23:44:16 mircea_popescu: when i was a kid, the #1 question hopeful spouse had to handle with the fambly was "are they smart enough"

23:44:22 mircea_popescu: us forgot this somehoiw.

23:44:53 mircea_popescu: who the fuck said "honey, she's too dumb for you and her house smells of poor people" the past decade.

23:45:20 asciilifeform: afaik this is still very much a thing in usa

23:45:22 mircea_popescu: ("smells of poor people" is in no small part ABSENCE. "intellectuals" are used to the mild allergenic reaction of paper dust mites + old ink smell in trace amounts. because 5k books around.)

23:45:32 asciilifeform: aha!

23:45:58 asciilifeform: to the point that if i travel for week+ and come home, it knocks me over nearly

23:46:13 *: mircea_popescu doesn't keep books anymore

23:46:24 asciilifeform: they didn't fit into the space capsule aha

23:46:27 gernika: My encyclopedia britannica smelled - not good

23:46:36 gernika: used to it now

23:46:39 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i took a gamble of sorts. it kinda worked.

23:46:41 phf: man can't keep up with that guy, first email, now books

23:46:56 asciilifeform: gernika: what vintage ?

23:46:57 mircea_popescu: what guy ?

23:47:01 phf: you

23:47:05 asciilifeform: gernika: i have a 1958 one, smells great

23:47:08 mircea_popescu: lol.

23:47:16 shinohai: Sent 20 emails out today regarding your art commission, get one chick to reply 10 minutes ago. I gave her a link to chat.

23:47:20 mircea_popescu: hey, i count it like giving up drinking.

23:47:24 mircea_popescu: i don't aim to defend it.

23:47:24 gernika: asciilifeform: 1958 - complete with class schedule of a junior high student from 1969.

23:47:40 asciilifeform: gernika: we might disagree on what means 'smells great'

23:48:35 gernika: asciilifeform: it's a slightly chemical smell - perhaps ammoniaish?

23:48:46 asciilifeform: gernika: not in mine (as far as naked nose can tell) - oddly enough

23:48:56 asciilifeform: other than possibly on the colour plates.

23:48:57 mircea_popescu: ahahahaah alf has a nose cosy ?

23:49:05 asciilifeform: cosy ?

23:49:15 mircea_popescu: o you dunno what a cosy is ?

23:49:27 asciilifeform: just now saw it for the first time

23:49:33 asciilifeform: apparently a kind of sock ?

23:49:33 mircea_popescu: it's a great thing. the main by-product of the knitting culture. little clothes made to measure by bored old women for things like teapots.

23:50:02 *: asciilifeform does not own a knitted cone (or any other kind) to wear on the nose...

23:50:07 mircea_popescu: it has all the symptoms of childrearing apparatus gone berserk.

23:51:19 asciilifeform: https://www.blocktrail.com/BTC/pool/21inc << l0l

23:51:20 assbot: ... ( http://bit.ly/1FbWoTx )

23:51:38 asciilifeform: and here i was thinking that hearncoin was through

23:53:18 mircea_popescu: so dumbass "political campaign" for some twerp here tried to have a huge rally (which is how i woke up, fucking drummers). but it's been raining, and nobody gives a shit about their crap, so they took refuge under a huge awning and there they've been, playing this inept 2 minute political soundclip (lo que la gente quiere, blabla fuckhead rodrgues) etc. this for a while, until

23:53:20 mircea_popescu: <mircea_popescu> those fuckers. NOBODY FUCKING QUIERES.

23:53:20 mircea_popescu: *hanbot* i'm dressing.

23:53:20 mircea_popescu: <mircea_popescu> huh ?

23:53:20 mircea_popescu: *hanbot* i am going out there to tell them to shut the fuck up.

23:53:22 mircea_popescu: <mircea_popescu> this i gotta see.

23:53:36 mircea_popescu: so she went down there and they stopped. and then... were quiet for like... ten minutes.

23:53:40 mircea_popescu: then they started again

23:53:46 mircea_popescu: for maybe five minutes. and then left.

23:54:05 mircea_popescu: let it never be said that woman can not break things. woman can break men's spirit, and that's major.

23:54:19 asciilifeform: l0l

23:54:42 mircea_popescu: she fucking shoo'd a political campaign away from the fucking downtown landmark!

23:54:45 mircea_popescu: valkyrie on a stick.

23:55:12 mircea_popescu: i gotta teach her how to work the backpack flamethrower.

23:55:24 hanbot: ^ yes please.

23:55:49 mircea_popescu: lmao. remember that monthy python supermarket scene ?

23:55:56 mircea_popescu: woman buys flamethrower ?

23:56:32 hanbot: i've got a fever, and the only prescription is moar dakka.

23:56:37 mircea_popescu: haha
