00:11:45 mircea_popescu: !gettrust SuchWow

00:11:45 assbot: SuchWow is not registered in WoT.

00:11:56 SuchWow: I was a founding op of #dogecoin lol

00:12:01 SuchWow: and i've never been interested

00:12:05 SuchWow: in bot trust games lol

00:12:28 mircea_popescu: mkay.

00:12:44 SuchWow: u can search ur logs for more, i've had a few mildly amusing exchanges here (not really tho

00:13:34 cazalla: SuchWow, is this the day where you check if #b-a is still around long after dogecoin was put to sleep?

00:15:30 SuchWow: cazalla: clearly you haven't been watching dogecoin charts, and even more clearly, you have no idea who i am.

00:15:39 SuchWow: or what i do, etc.

00:15:49 SuchWow: but have fun with your attempted cajoles lol

00:16:12 cazalla: SuchWow, you mean i don't know chinese exchanges pump it up with fake volume to fool westerners?

00:16:18 SuchWow: now i get why you only voice ppl under certain conditions

00:16:40 SuchWow: cazalla: if you say so, i really and honestly wouldn't know anything about that

00:16:40 cazalla: what conditions are they?

00:16:52 SuchWow: i dunno, you're here in this chan, i haven't been here for months

00:16:56 SuchWow: you tell me

00:17:21 SuchWow: you're the one making subtly degrading comments towards me based on total ignorance

00:17:28 SuchWow: so perhaps the rules have changed

00:17:48 *: SuchWow yawns

00:17:59 cazalla: people often up others that /join the channel.. sorta like answering a knock at the door? just being polite ya know, there is no judgement one way or the other until you open your mouth

00:18:26 ben_vulpes: altcoins are retarded, you're going to get prodded when you show up here pumping them.

00:18:32 ben_vulpes: big whoop.

00:18:45 SuchWow: cazalla: i've been upped over a dozen times here, thanks

00:19:01 SuchWow: it was not my idea to bring up altcoins in the discussion

00:19:12 SuchWow: someone asked who i was, i reminded them, and then you started in with ur bullshit

00:19:18 SuchWow: doesn't bother me at all tho tbh

00:19:21 ben_vulpes: heh. but you're here! who could resist taking a shot!

00:19:25 SuchWow: :D

00:19:26 ben_vulpes: > ur bullshit

00:19:29 ben_vulpes: > doesn't bother me

00:19:31 ben_vulpes: mhhhhhhhm

00:19:39 SuchWow: well i'll be more clear

00:19:46 SuchWow: implying that i have knowledge of what he was saying

00:19:48 SuchWow: is the bullshit part

00:19:56 SuchWow: what he actually said cold be true,, i woudln't know lol

00:19:58 ben_vulpes: we all do is the funny part

00:20:12 SuchWow: i just saw one of your 'members' spamming in another chan

00:20:14 ben_vulpes: we're all complicit in the altcoin pump and dump nao!

00:20:20 SuchWow: and said 'hey, why not see what they'er up to'

00:20:29 ben_vulpes: winding up altcoiners, today

00:20:35 cazalla: SuchWow, you're the one that said check out the charts.. i did and btc38 is supposedly 85% of the dogecoin trade

00:20:35 SuchWow: since btc has returned to volatility again

00:20:45 SuchWow: and i l ike to trade 796 at 50:1 instead of playing poker these days

00:20:48 mircea_popescu: lol what, the proposition is that dogecoin still exists ?!

00:21:02 SuchWow: cazalla: pretty sure cryptsy is still #1, but haven't checked honestly

00:21:20 SuchWow: cazalla: my comment was more about you saying doge had been 'put to sleep'

00:21:30 SuchWow: when in reality it has returned close to 400% recently

00:21:33 cazalla: pretty sure but haven't checked.. ok sorta makes sense why you'd be involved in dogecoin to begin with

00:21:43 ben_vulpes: <mircea_popescu> "i thought i killed it a year ago!"

00:21:51 SuchWow: cazalla: there you go again. Why do you think i am involved with dogecoin?

00:22:01 SuchWow: you keep using that as an insult

00:22:06 SuchWow: but i'm not involved with dogecoin

00:22:10 SuchWow: and haven't been for a long time

00:22:11 cazalla: SuchWow, you brought it up by bragging about being a founder of #dogecoin (wow, such bragworthy, not)

00:22:19 ben_vulpes: you're not anyone, how could you be involved with anything...

00:22:22 SuchWow: so keep on with that delusiohn. it would seem YOU know more than ME about it lol

00:22:29 SuchWow: cazalla: i was asked 'who are you again'

00:22:32 SuchWow: i answered

00:22:34 SuchWow: that's it

00:22:36 SuchWow: the rest wqas you

00:22:39 ben_vulpes: SuchWow: yeah who are you actually

00:22:41 SuchWow: dealwithit.jpg

00:22:55 williamdunne: SuchWow: You mentioned the dogecoin thing, I also assumed you're still involved

00:22:55 cazalla: umad.gif

00:23:06 SuchWow: well

00:23:11 SuchWow: 6 months ago when i was last here

00:23:11 mircea_popescu: http://31.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m8p818rhXu1qm11cfo1_500.gif << actual gif.

00:23:13 assbot: ... ( http://bit.ly/1GBqsVv )

00:23:22 SuchWow: that was what/who everyone knew me as

00:23:28 SuchWow: that is generally my reputation

00:23:28 cazalla: SuchWow, being involved in dogecoin at some point is not something you go around bragging

00:23:33 SuchWow: clearly it rings a bell to none of you

00:23:39 SuchWow: and you just keep asking me over and over lol

00:23:43 ben_vulpes: i tried to short it once

00:23:50 ben_vulpes: but i'm retarded so

00:23:51 SuchWow: i'm not bragging? i was answering a question asked of me

00:23:54 SuchWow: y'all dense as fuck

00:24:05 SuchWow: THAT is what (if anything) you would remember me from

00:24:12 SuchWow: and if you didn't want to know

00:24:15 SuchWow: you shouldn't have asked

00:24:18 SuchWow: hostile crowd here

00:24:32 mircea_popescu: well yeah.

00:24:37 cazalla: there is no hostility, you're just a little touchy

00:32:00 SuchWow: in that weekly register

00:32:04 SuchWow: when will that happen?

00:32:07 mircea_popescu: SuchWow nobody asked them anything.

00:32:10 ben_vulpes: who cares

00:32:19 SuchWow: everyone in btcland should?

00:32:27 SuchWow: because if rumors about china banning are relevant

00:32:34 SuchWow: than ACTUAL FACTS about regulation should be pertinent?

00:32:37 ben_vulpes: by the time the usg realizes that there's a btc-shaped train headed its way it will be too late for it to do anything.

00:32:43 mircea_popescu: i dun think you understand how teh btcworld works.

00:32:47 ben_vulpes: naw it'll be great SuchWow

00:32:57 ben_vulpes: we'll get to see btc users go to town on china

00:32:57 SuchWow: i think nobody knows the answer to my question lol

00:32:59 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 15576 @ 0.00041577 = 6.476 BTC [-] {2}

00:33:19 *: ben_vulpes chants "hash by hand. hash by hand."

00:33:21 SuchWow: and if nobody here knows that answer, than that tells me what i need to know lol

00:33:30 ben_vulpes: bitcoin-assets aka bitcoin doomsday cult

00:33:32 SuchWow: (i just trade btc/usd on 796 at 50:1 for gambling purposes)

00:33:35 SuchWow: way more fun than poker

00:33:41 ben_vulpes: repeat!

00:33:51 mircea_popescu: "main calls AppInit, which itself calls AppInit2 catching all exceptions in two seperate logic branches, shuting itself down if the second layer of AppInit doesn't fire correctly:"

00:33:52 SuchWow: i'm currently bullish, after a LONG time of being bearish

00:33:55 mircea_popescu: for crying out loud.

00:34:01 SuchWow: hence why i was curious as to the general sentiment here

00:34:08 ben_vulpes: mircea_popescu: what!?

00:34:25 mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes i just keep forgetting the horrest parts of bitcoin

00:34:38 ben_vulpes: it almost looks normal now

00:34:40 ben_vulpes: weep for me

00:34:42 mircea_popescu: then go through these phases of he's kidding no wait, wait, i recall this. but it couldn't be. o yes it is.

00:35:01 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 43996 @ 0.00041263 = 18.1541 BTC [-] {3}

00:35:51 mircea_popescu: mysterious BDB shenanigans on application shutdown << it doesn't have atomic index operations. which means, that it can has updated index but unupdated data.

00:35:53 SuchWow: i ofc assume that sentimentality on btc prices affects the securities tradded with it lol

00:35:57 mircea_popescu: at least that's what i understand of it.

00:38:23 ben_vulpes: ah CAddrDB("cr+").LoadAddresses(); i missed you

00:38:25 SuchWow: Anyhow, it's been a pleasure speaking with you all, and should I ever quit my job and start daytrading BTC/USD fulltime again, I will return. I will give back the last 2 minutes I have of being 'upped' to the floor. :)

00:38:37 mircea_popescu: cheers.

00:38:41 ben_vulpes: you were keeping track?

00:38:49 *: SuchWow pours shots for everyone before he goes

00:38:52 ben_vulpes: this was a deliberately orchestrated event!

00:38:54 mircea_popescu: "Even though the application's default behavior is to create the ~/.bitcoind directory itself unprompted (and yet not the bitcoin.conf file that the damn thing expects in there), if you pass it a data directory that doesn't exist, it refuses to create it."

00:38:56 mircea_popescu: ahahaha

00:38:56 ben_vulpes: i feel hoodwinked.

00:38:57 mircea_popescu: o god.

00:39:39 ben_vulpes: i'm getting lazy with pronouns.

00:39:54 ben_vulpes: but it's hard to write well wearing asbestos gloves.

00:40:06 mircea_popescu: Bitcoind as written would be the best possible example of condescending software design if it were worthy of being called "designed" instead of "crufted together by a monotonically increasingly febrile group of contributors". << i can sign that.

00:40:08 SuchWow: BOTTOMS UP! CHEERS! KEEP FIGHTING THE GOOD FIGHT MEN! AND WOMEN! AND OTHERS! SEE YOU IN 2016 WHEN THIS SHIT GETS SUPER REAL :D

00:40:16 ben_vulpes: oh fuck off

00:40:18 ben_vulpes: !down SuchWow

00:40:40 mircea_popescu: ./proggy -? << iirc this is the old ms-dos standard.

00:40:54 mircea_popescu: because it had to be different from the -h convention

00:40:56 ben_vulpes: the cover

00:40:59 ben_vulpes: it is so complete

00:41:15 mircea_popescu: hm ?

00:41:17 ben_vulpes: visual basic

00:41:21 ben_vulpes: old ms-dos cli flags

00:41:27 ben_vulpes: targeting windows

00:41:30 mircea_popescu: lol

00:41:38 ben_vulpes: it's almost convincing

00:41:41 mircea_popescu: yeah

00:42:16 mircea_popescu: certainly nobody still young enough to pick up chicks would know wtf -?

00:42:49 mircea_popescu: (and no, i'm not an exception - i have to have the chicks pick up chicks for me!)

00:43:45 ben_vulpes: poor old man

00:43:53 ben_vulpes: poor, poor you

00:44:18 mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes btw, as a matter of course articles like that should contain a "this is how you get your system to reproduce my screenshots" thing, with emacs settings etc.

00:44:38 mircea_popescu: help people learn the shit you use makes more people use the shit you use makes you less likely to have to learn shit other people use.

00:45:07 ben_vulpes: e for student

00:45:13 ben_vulpes: exercise*

00:45:35 mircea_popescu: it doth not have the great degree of generality that a good exercise makes.

00:45:51 ben_vulpes: M-x gdb

00:45:58 ben_vulpes: okay okay

00:48:28 mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes and yet, author knows enough to use strprintf rather than any other of the countless vulnerable c string things

00:48:34 mircea_popescu: in which aspect c is very much like php

00:48:49 mircea_popescu: ( http://locklessinc.com/articles/dynamic_cstrings/ for the curious )

00:48:50 assbot: Dynamic Strings in C ... ( http://bit.ly/1GBrSiV )

00:54:25 ben_vulpes: does argue for a rather sophisticated greybeard

00:54:51 ben_vulpes: the most elaborate programming exercise - write something world-changing in a style nobody would ever attribute to you

00:55:53 mircea_popescu: myeah. it just doesn't wash, half the "expert" population of c-ers doesn't actually comprehend c string safety

00:55:56 mircea_popescu: (admitting such exists)

00:59:56 mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes incidentally is http://cascadianhacker.com/headers/headlights.jpg a muntz rocket ?

00:59:58 assbot: ... ( http://bit.ly/1GBsyF5 )

01:01:21 mircea_popescu: ;;later tell pete_dushenski http://cascadianhacker.com/blog/2015/05/26_just-another-day-in-sunny-cascadia.html << nice job.

01:01:22 assbot: just another day in sunny cascadia ... ( http://bit.ly/1GBsFQN )

01:01:22 gribble: The operation succeeded.

01:01:24 ben_vulpes: muntz the car brand or muntz the guy who made TVs?

01:01:27 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 30100 @ 0.00040941 = 12.3232 BTC [-] {5}

01:02:05 ben_vulpes: either way, no

01:02:54 ben_vulpes: unless you're making a sophisticated joke about horsepower and snipping arbitrary cables...

01:04:09 mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes he also made a car.

01:04:20 mircea_popescu: like 1000 or so ever made. valuable antique now

01:04:53 mircea_popescu: http://onlytruecars.com/data_images/models/muntz-jet/muntz-jet-01.jpg

01:04:54 assbot: ... ( http://bit.ly/1GBsMMr )

01:05:24 mircea_popescu: but yeah, doesn't actually look like it

03:02:31 asciilifeform: how does it (claim to) work ?

03:03:11 ben_vulpes: broadcast a transaction with a higher fee, miners will include it preferentially to a previous transaction with the same inputs

03:03:20 BingoBoingo: asciilifeform:

03:03:22 BingoBoingo: faith

03:03:32 ben_vulpes: nevermind that nothing keeps people from selecting transactions for block inclusion arbitrarily

03:03:40 BingoBoingo: The Tood thing works through pure profit incentive

03:03:55 ben_vulpes: myeah, and miners should really be doing it already

03:04:16 asciilifeform: ben_vulpes, BingoBoingo: what is so peculiar about including whatever transaction fee? this was always possible ..?

03:04:16 ben_vulpes: it is in no way to the best of my knowledge a change in anything of import

03:04:47 BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: It's basically just Peter Todd made the first public code available to do this

03:04:55 asciilifeform: to do what?

03:05:02 ben_vulpes: convention for a long time was that "the earliest broadcast transaction wins" as some sort of half-assed soft-connsensus-aka-fecal-matter prophylactic against double spends

03:05:03 BingoBoingo: Select for fees

03:05:08 BingoBoingo: on the same inputs

03:05:10 asciilifeform: i don't get it. anyone was already able to specify arbitrarily high fee

03:05:35 *: asciilifeform sorta assumed that miners already optimize for snarfing up max fee

03:05:42 BingoBoingo: Indeed, but whatever fee maximizing patches miners and pools were running for were like most serious pool code... seekrit

03:05:48 asciilifeform: if they don't, they are fools, and it isn't any fault of mine

03:06:05 asciilifeform: let me guess:

03:06:09 ben_vulpes: prefer transactions with high fees over transactions with low fees

03:06:13 asciilifeform: shitgang is trying to push a 'for miners' version of turdcoin ?

03:06:23 ben_vulpes: it's about inclusion logic after transactions got broadcast

03:06:24 BingoBoingo: Apparently enough pools though were on derp and herp choosing "see first mine first"

03:06:26 asciilifeform: aimed to replace 'seekrit miner versions'

03:06:37 BingoBoingo: Pretty much

03:06:59 asciilifeform: unsurprising

03:07:09 ben_vulpes: me too

03:07:09 ben_vulpes: look how dumb we are

03:07:57 asciilifeform: i can picture the minutes. 'hitler: you know, miners are using own versions of bitcoin and don't particular feel like backporting their necessary mods to yours. hearn: so let's do the work for them. gavin: fine idea'

03:08:40 ben_vulpes: clearly don't understand how theWerld Werks (tm)

03:10:10 asciilifeform: btw, one of the (not so) secrets is that mining does not select for 'the brightest bulbs at home depot [u.s. household goods shop]' - nor for political acumen, nor for really much else other than the peculiar countereconomic wormholes which make it sound like a reasonable proposition

03:10:49 ben_vulpes: moreover i'm not convinced it wasn't a stooge who broadcast the RBF txn to make the tweet in the first place

03:11:06 ben_vulpes: mining is the worst business.

03:25:28 BingoBoingo: I am starting to think "Olde Laptop Colo" might make a nice franchised business

03:26:00 asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: pre-emplaced in sand pits and fused mains wiring, for the inevitable halt&catchfire ?

03:26:49 asciilifeform: perhaps bury them in the earth (with chimneys for hot air.) sorta like the tombs in recoleta cemetary in buenos aires

03:26:58 asciilifeform: (a surprising number had corpse-gas exhaust pipes!)

03:27:10 asciilifeform: ben_vulpes was there, saw this

03:27:27 BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Individual enclosures, one time setup fee which covers adapting the machine to its new cooling and power situation

03:27:50 asciilifeform: incidentally earth is great for passive cooling

03:27:57 asciilifeform: (if burial is deep enough)

03:28:29 asciilifeform: you will need to seal to keep out moisture, but if repair is not a concern (machine is disposable, replacement gets new burial plot) this is relatively simple matter

03:29:31 asciilifeform: though i still like my proposal for sinking miners to the bottom of the north atlantic, more.

03:29:49 asciilifeform: (go and steal, aha)

03:29:58 BingoBoingo: I'm thinking more steel sheds, rural locations that happen to be near interections of big city fiber. Prospective franchisees would be the local small town "computer repair" folk

03:30:48 asciilifeform: nah, you want to take serious advantage of the expendability

03:31:21 asciilifeform: but in such a way that the box lives out its remaining life, rather than being lifted by the first idiot copper scavenger who comes along.

03:31:44 asciilifeform: (not because valuable, but because copper scavengers need to be publicly flayed rather than encouraged)

03:31:46 BingoBoingo: Sure, but I'm thinking you do so by getting machines from the customers.

03:33:18 BingoBoingo: customer brings boxen, pay setup then power+pipe. Value proposition to franchisees is small town computer outfit gets an avenue to engage in rent collection.

03:34:00 asciilifeform: if box is easily accessible, 'skin not worth the tanning'

03:34:24 asciilifeform: whole point would be the physical security of a few metres of cement

03:35:14 asciilifeform: (it is possible to break up cement, but not without anyone noticing. this is the basic principle for the nuke test-ban compliance gadget used on both sides of the ocean)

03:35:26 asciilifeform: see the literature.

03:36:54 asciilifeform: (machine includes vibration, ph, sensors, clinometer, magnetometer, etc. if readings deviate from 'pylon is happily alone in the earth' memory gets zeroed and walked over, continuously)

03:37:40 BingoBoingo: Point for the customers is access to pipe and power off of their own premises. Physical security offered against naive scavengers, but premise could scale to hundreds of locations. Cheap and easily replicable

03:38:24 asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: schmucks in, iirc, germany, doing this already. see logs

03:38:38 asciilifeform: snorefest because this has literally no serious advantage over normal hosting

03:38:59 asciilifeform: (if i wanted a box in some schmuck's house, i'd put it right here in mine)

03:39:36 asciilifeform: but five metres of cement - or 500m of salt water - that would be something.

03:40:42 BingoBoingo: Typical imagined customer is small business that wants to support other local business. Connosieur customer wants access to pipe without fucking up their netflix at home.

03:41:28 asciilifeform: so he would share with ~some other schmuck's~ netflix ?

03:41:46 asciilifeform: this has all the appeal of renting out the toilet in your house as a public latrine

03:42:11 BingoBoingo: lol, yes

03:42:18 asciilifeform: or your kitchen, as a place for bums to cook roadkill in

03:43:07 mats: brb submitting my ycombinator application for this idea

03:43:14 BingoBoingo: mats: Go for it

03:43:37 asciilifeform: 'sharing economy!!11!!1' (tm) (r)

03:44:33 BingoBoingo: Seriously, this has all the promise of a great chumpatron except every now and then a customer does something worthwhile

03:45:36 asciilifeform: btw, my local telco quasimonopoly - 'verizon' - had a hilarious tamer version of this for some years, where you pay a few hundy for a box that opens a vpn to their end and gives you cell signal in your house, via your own net pipe. and they had the audacity to still charge for the 'minutes' and per MB of data.

03:45:55 asciilifeform: as result, the only folks who bought were 1) chumps 2) people who wanted to make own 'stingray'

03:46:26 mats: that's kind of brilliant

03:46:33 asciilifeform: vendor very much did not like (2) and they closed the hole which made reflashing the rom trivial. now you have to actually open the plastic box, oh noez.

03:46:40 mats: for operator, anyway

03:47:16 asciilifeform: who wants - go, buy.

03:47:19 asciilifeform: thing is still sold.

03:47:37 BingoBoingo: femtocel

03:47:38 asciilifeform: http://www.verizonwireless.com/accessories/samsung-network-extender-scs-2u01

03:47:41 assbot: Samsung Network Extender (SCS-2U01)- Verizon Wireless ... ( http://bit.ly/1RnOmqs )

03:47:55 asciilifeform: i'm told there are equivalents for other american carriers

03:48:24 BingoBoingo: I think Comcast and a few cableco's do this for wifi

03:51:15 BingoBoingo: Major revenue source for mothership is selling the franchisees laptop cages, cooling, and FeNi batteries

03:52:22 BingoBoingo: Revenue source for franchisee is setting up machines, collecting rent, and selling good feels to the locals

03:52:53 asciilifeform: if the past 40 years of computer retardation hadn't happened, and we used a stack with support for seamless process migration, 'voting circuit' computation, etc. it would be practical to use '1024 chickens' arrays of arbitrarily garbage hardware

03:53:03 asciilifeform: as it is, there is a lower bound for what is worth bothering with at all.

03:53:15 asciilifeform: what, other than bitcoind, would you even consider putting on such a thing

03:54:14 BingoBoingo: Actually this idea was born from I have phree machine, want to appliance it up with Bitcoind, but making it a super public seeder on the home connection would be the suck.

03:54:17 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 8974 @ 0.00039974 = 3.5873 BTC [-] {2}

03:54:46 asciilifeform: rent a cage at data center

03:54:55 asciilifeform: this costs money, so find 40 friends to split it with

03:54:59 BingoBoingo: Other maybe applications of such service though might be IRC bouncers and personal mail machines

03:55:04 asciilifeform: (typically they go by full rack)

03:55:46 BingoBoingo: Which is the beauty of this idea. Find folk who would sell fractional rackspace

03:55:57 BingoBoingo: AirBNB the datacenter

03:56:12 asciilifeform: fractional rack space with terrible hardware already exists

03:56:19 asciilifeform: i have a few boxes like this myself

03:57:02 asciilifeform: thing is, what you're actually paying for is proximity to respectable pipe

03:57:14 asciilifeform: this is not to be found in a residential unit, and certainly not in usa

03:58:02 BingoBoingo: And now we have the real crux of the problem. How to get chumps to subsidize serious pipe

03:58:06 asciilifeform: brings back to a fundamental point from one of mircea_popescu's articles - shuffling things around is not going to increase 'number of turkeys available'

03:58:32 asciilifeform: usa is a shit-internet country. this won't change because there is no good reason for it to change

03:58:43 BingoBoingo: More turkeys is a very hard problem. More chickens is much easier.

03:59:16 asciilifeform: laying cable to nowhere-duelingbajos-fucktown is not an economically +ev proposition.

03:59:27 asciilifeform: places which only even have telephones because usg imposed it

03:59:51 asciilifeform: desovietization will leave those folks where they belong - with highest tech level available being the hog harness

04:00:17 asciilifeform: (hell, possibly whole usa is candidate for this)

04:00:38 BingoBoingo: Mapsploring I am finding a disturbing number of duelingbajos-fucktowns which by all right ought to have datacenters advertising colospace based on cable locations and intersections.

04:01:11 asciilifeform: they probably have cable in cement vault

04:01:21 BingoBoingo: A number of these fucktowns even have major connection endpoints in the form of bezzelversities

04:03:07 asciilifeform: incidentally, just about every american town of any size has a version of this: the hollowed-out fortified walls of the old strowger-switch telco exchanges

04:03:19 asciilifeform: they are being filled up with 'dc on the cheap'

04:03:21 BingoBoingo: Prime candidate for such an operation is carbondale, Illinois. Lived there once. Oasis of connectivity in a desert. Major chicago-New Orleans pipe. Indianapolis pipe. St Louis pipe. Shithole Kentucky pipes. Many hippies who want to "buy local"

04:03:34 asciilifeform: but still largely empty, because in bezzleworld 'cheap' is a relative thing.

04:04:00 asciilifeform: but at no point does it make sense to emplace anything of any value whatsoever in mr. randomschmuck's house.

04:04:06 BingoBoingo: USG datacenters 10 miles away in Marion, IL off of the pipe path because prisons and FBU

04:04:14 asciilifeform: i will have no part in it. and i can't picture any sane person wanting a part in it.

04:05:09 BingoBoingo: Oh I never said house. I said shed. Shed goes on shitland, in town's once industrial district. Preferably a "superfund" site.

04:05:25 asciilifeform: what, again, would you pay actual money to host in such a place ?

04:06:01 BingoBoingo: to host three machines in different locals for the price of one machine in a big city datacenter

04:06:04 asciilifeform: and how does it beat the 20-30bux/mo an old pentium3 in data center costs?

04:06:37 asciilifeform: methinks we're speaking of a 'chinese backyard steel mill' situation here.

04:06:45 asciilifeform: !s backyard steel

04:06:46 assbot: 6 results for 'backyard steel' : http://s.b-a.link/?q=backyard+steel

04:07:18 BingoBoingo: AH, in this region there is not such a deal I can drive to. A bring the box colo costs $70 USD for 1 rack unit

04:07:42 BingoBoingo: At half depth

04:08:45 BingoBoingo: I'm trying to think out a way to chump this down to $20 per box

04:09:18 asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: that'd easily fit half a dozen of, e.g., these, http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=12-06-2015#1162727

04:11:40 BingoBoingo: But the franchise model was suggested for a reason. When dealing with homo reddictus must put meatshield up to absorb derp.

04:12:05 asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: i'm just at a serious loss to picture how this wins.

04:12:10 pete_dushenski: cazalla: i'm seeing the comment. also, replied. http://www.contravex.com/2015/06/19/epidemiology-is-hard-to-follow/#comment-21039

04:13:34 pete_dushenski: mircea_popescu: nice job ? y'know i'm taller than that guy ;) though i can see the similarity

04:13:37 BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Who said it wins? I'm merely suggesting it could take in more dollars than expended. At the moment McDonalds is losing.

04:14:17 pete_dushenski: ben_vulpes: your blog has a header ! and it's a c-c-c-car !!

04:15:54 asciilifeform: pete_dushenski: 'Sorry, hun, doesn?t work like that. That was the Ambien you took.' << is this the new substitute for lsd ?

04:16:02 asciilifeform: what's it do, specifically ?

04:16:13 asciilifeform: feel like i heard of it before

04:16:16 asciilifeform: (tlp?)

04:16:22 BingoBoingo: Consider college towns. Local population of students who want a seedbox for torrents who can't on the campus network because of network restrictions on. Just need any box they can ftp into.

04:16:37 pete_dushenski: asciilifeform: indeed it's from tlp. and it's a sedative.

04:16:46 BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Ambien makes one trip balls if you stay awake instead of sleeping

04:17:19 pete_dushenski: ambien "It is a short-acting nonbenzodiazepine hypnotic of the imidazopyridine class[3] that potentiates GABA, an inhibitory neurotransmitter, by binding to GABAA receptors at the same location as benzodiazepines.[4] It works quickly, usually within 15 minutes, and has a short half-life of two to three hours."

04:17:40 BingoBoingo: Less LSD alternative and more "robotrip" alternative

04:17:52 asciilifeform: so ghb-like mechanism ?

04:18:09 asciilifeform: robotrip ?

04:19:00 BingoBoingo: ghb like, if GHB were ken shamrock and Ambien Kimbo Slice

04:19:03 *: asciilifeform is very much out of date on dope trivia

04:19:37 pete_dushenski: robotrip sounds like robocop come back from the dead as a walking zombie

04:19:47 BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: You've never had a whole bottle of dextromorphan only cough syrup and communed with your toilet bowl contemplating "All"

04:19:49 *: asciilifeform will catch up on dope when he is finally confined to the психушка

04:21:13 asciilifeform: pete_dushenski still awake ?

04:21:24 asciilifeform: pete_dushenski ought to write a piece on the uprising at treblinka.

04:21:38 asciilifeform: (specifically)

04:21:51 pete_dushenski: hm. can't say i know much about it.

04:21:52 asciilifeform: ^ this re: the quoted thread with spandrell

04:22:01 pete_dushenski: asciilifeform: have some source material handy ?

04:22:04 asciilifeform: re 'wives & children'

04:22:04 pete_dushenski: aha.

04:22:17 asciilifeform: what languages does pete_dushenski have a command of ?

04:22:17 *: BingoBoingo was prescribed Ambien to sleep in Undergrad. Made the mistake of taking before getting last cigarette of the evening. Ambien can trigger some odd things.

04:23:20 pete_dushenski: asciilifeform: for translation purposes : french and spanish. the romanian bits i do, awful as they are, are only because mp authored them.

04:24:11 BingoBoingo: Also... get ready for more bearded ladies http://pipeline.corante.com/archives/2015/06/18/aging_as_a_disease.php (female facial hair is most notorious metformin side effect)

04:24:12 assbot: Aging As a Disease. In the Pipeline: ... ( http://bit.ly/1Jdm0QG )

04:24:37 asciilifeform: pete_dushenski: my recollection (ru sources) is that treblinka was the site of one of the very few uprisings on account of the participants in said uprising having already lost their women

04:24:38 pete_dushenski: BingoBoingo: what 'odd things' did ambien trigger for you ?

04:25:04 pete_dushenski: asciilifeform: ah yes, this rings a bell now. probably from the logs.

04:25:08 pete_dushenski: !s treblinka

04:25:09 assbot: 4 results for 'treblinka' : http://s.b-a.link/?q=treblinka

04:25:54 BingoBoingo: pete_dushenski: Mostly it triggered some interesting visual things and a profound compromise in judgement equivalent to a fifth of bourbon, but without the other tell tale warnings actual booze would offer.

04:26:36 asciilifeform: 'At Treblinka, an underground organization plotted an armed rebellion and mass escape. Learning about the Warsaw ghetto revolt from the last transports of Jews brought to Treblinka from Warsaw, the organizers decided the moment for revolt had arrived. On August 2, 1943, the underground fighters put their plan into action: to steal arms from the warehouse; eliminate the German and Ukrainian guards on duty; set the camp on fire;

04:26:36 asciilifeform: destroy the extermination area; and, then help the remaining prisoners escape to the forest. Many were killed during the rebellion, including all the resistance leaders, as the flames and reports of the revolt brought German reinforcements from all directions. But as many as 200 prisoners escaped to the neighboring forest, and perhaps twenty of those men survived German efforts to recapture them.'

04:26:41 asciilifeform: ^ engl. summary

04:27:17 BingoBoingo: If in bed immediately after ambien... much sleep. Problem is I developed tolerance to the stuff rapidly.

04:28:11 pete_dushenski: http://holocaust-history.org/operation-reinhard/uprising-in-treblinka.shtml << firsthand account of one of said 200 escapees.

04:28:14 assbot: Uprising in Treblinka ... ( http://bit.ly/1JdmiXY )

04:28:40 pete_dushenski: written in 1945 and presented before us congress.

04:28:58 asciilifeform: does it mention the interesting detail re: the women ?

04:29:29 BingoBoingo: pete_dushenski: I'm probably missing some nuances because... a decade ago

04:32:13 trinque: I had a roommate who would sleepwalk on ambien

04:32:24 trinque: started talking to me about the rollercoaster theme park he was at one night

04:32:30 trinque: and other hilarious nonsense

04:33:35 pete_dushenski: asciilifeform: just scanned it. account describes particular atrocities against women and babies, but doesn't specifically state that 700 "workers" who staged coup were mostly or entirely men.

04:34:04 pete_dushenski: BingoBoingo: alcohol sounds more fun.

04:34:12 BingoBoingo: pete_dushenski: It is

04:34:54 BingoBoingo: trinque: The cognitive impairment if I remember correctly is at least equivalent to 750ml of 80 proof liquor

04:35:04 asciilifeform: pete_dushenski: that they were men is no surprise of any kind. but the detail i recall was that they were men who either had no wife, no sister, in the camp (or knew that these were safely dead)

04:35:09 trinque: BingoBoingo: yeah I took some for the hell of it

04:35:20 trinque: felt disoriented, confused, but nothing worth repeating

04:36:38 BingoBoingo: A couple years later I was at a conference I wanted to nope the fuck out of, had one left in my grooming package. Challenged the up escalator and lost. Thankfully my (actual) sherpa kept me from falling in the Chicago river

04:38:11 asciilifeform: pete_dushenski: spandrell's 'we should stop and think what makes bold people bold, and what patterns are common to people who can fight back' is reasonable observation

04:38:57 pete_dushenski: asciilifeform: seems like a tricky and rather specific detail to unearth about treblinka. may be apocryphal ?

04:39:05 asciilifeform: pete_dushenski: may be.

04:39:18 pete_dushenski: asciilifeform: also ties into mp's "married men should stfu" piece

04:39:43 pete_dushenski: though most don't need to be told this, as spandrell points out.

04:40:08 asciilifeform: pete_dushenski: re: spandrell and courage: think about the soviet propagandists' exhortation to 'go kill a german with your bare hands.' was it this that won the war? or also other things, like supply lines from factories set up in open air past urals, etc. ?

04:40:21 asciilifeform: bare courage gives you: zulu.

04:40:29 asciilifeform: charging british 'maxim'

04:41:08 asciilifeform: (there were occasions where zulu - won! but notice we have a britain today, shrivelled cock and all, but still on the map; but no zulu)

04:41:50 pete_dushenski: well, strategy's a thing.

04:42:08 pete_dushenski: courage doesn't mean kamikaze in a port-a-potee

04:42:22 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu might disagree

04:42:33 pete_dushenski: perhaps.

04:42:36 asciilifeform: if saturday's thread is anything to go on

04:43:23 pete_dushenski: ok so courage is necessary but not sufficient

04:43:48 pete_dushenski: it's *all* the zulu had

04:44:05 funkenstein_: there may be things in the world not on your map

04:44:36 pete_dushenski: there most certainly are.

04:44:46 funkenstein_: as someone who spend fathers day cleaning shit off lightbulbs, i look forward to the opportunity to disprove the thesis

04:44:48 asciilifeform: if funkenstein_ has a secret map pointing out a kingdom of nuke-wielding zulu, he oughta share.

04:45:02 pete_dushenski: lmao

04:45:29 funkenstein_: they show up in gibson's cyberspace don't they

04:45:32 *: asciilifeform wonders how shit might end up on a light bulb

04:45:35 asciilifeform: own a pet hippo ?

04:45:51 pete_dushenski: funkenstein_: this'd be the thesis that family men have too much to lose to wage war ?

04:46:06 funkenstein_: that's the one

04:46:26 funkenstein_: compare e.g. mao and kai-shek

04:46:39 funkenstein_: at least from the histories i have read

04:46:54 funkenstein_: kai-shek had son captured by russians, was incapacitated

04:47:02 funkenstein_: mao, didn't give a flying fuck about kids

04:47:13 asciilifeform: famously, fate of stalin's son

04:47:14 pete_dushenski: funkenstein_: i suspect that a healthy chunk of b,tmsr~ is equally prepared to prove this wrong.

04:47:47 pete_dushenski: the digital domain being quite a different landscape from the concentration camps, i suspect it's entirely possible.

04:48:06 pete_dushenski: like the deficits that we can run, no one else can do.

04:48:23 asciilifeform: i never grokked that part

04:48:44 asciilifeform: by same argument, e.g., linux, has been running a far bigger 'deficit,' longer

04:48:53 pete_dushenski: difference between voluntary and coerced taxation model is my understanding.

04:48:58 asciilifeform: (are we simply mentally tallying unpaid specialist labour?)

04:49:20 asciilifeform: who was coercively taxed to write linux kernel ?

04:50:37 pete_dushenski: we're mentally tallying 'the state's' revenues vs. expenses

04:50:59 pete_dushenski: revenues are decentalised and therefore 'off the book'

04:51:14 pete_dushenski: expenses are 'for the greater good' and 'on the book'

04:51:24 asciilifeform: just pointing out that herr torvalds could run the same kind of calculation, and end up with similarly fantastic numbers

04:52:53 asciilifeform: funkenstein_: read link. not actually about lisp

04:53:20 pete_dushenski: asciilifeform: torvalds might do just that if he saw the value of such a calculation and understood the implications

04:53:27 funkenstein_: ah, you are on topic :)

04:53:57 asciilifeform: colour me thick, but i still don't feel like i have a grasp of the implications.

04:55:54 funkenstein_: he feels "tricked" to "give away work"?

04:55:59 pete_dushenski: well you're far from thick and not all that coloured, but the implication is that for an organisation as ambitious as this one, our enemies have their work cut out for them.

04:55:59 asciilifeform: digging up an old thread: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com//?date=18-02-2015#1023860

04:56:10 asciilifeform: ever wonder how this went away ?

04:56:57 asciilifeform: the original generation of 'computers are interesting and we know basic maths, etc' grew old, mostly did not die yet except in ben franklin's sense of 'most people die at 25 but buried at 75'

04:57:01 pete_dushenski: asciilifeform: i dunno torvalds well, but he doesn't seem to have 1/10 mircea_popescu's ambition

04:57:57 pete_dushenski: as such, torvalds won't direct his unpaid armadas towards anything like the targets and projects that mp will.

04:57:59 asciilifeform: but they went into the meatgrinder described in linked naggum piece.

04:58:47 funkenstein_: doing useful work is hardly a meatgrinder

04:58:52 ben_vulpes: i must be cocking this up in some novel way

04:59:08 asciilifeform: funkenstein_: read the naggum piece again.

04:59:45 asciilifeform: esp. the part re: 'is a surplus phenomenon'

05:01:47 funkenstein_: i'm not hugely impressed by his analysis

05:02:24 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 46500 @ 0.00039824 = 18.5182 BTC [-] {4}

05:02:30 asciilifeform: funkenstein_: would you be willing to share, roughly, how old you are ?

05:02:37 funkenstein_: this might apply to say, nethack coding

05:02:55 funkenstein_: but some things do have needs they address

05:03:14 funkenstein_: probably older than you, just not wiser

05:03:35 funkenstein_: due to various factors you may have already surmised

05:03:50 asciilifeform: funkenstein_: so you oughta be well-equipped to understand the observation re: 'it costs a hell of a lot to live'

05:04:47 funkenstein_: ok i don't know norway.. but i think that needs a bit of sussing out

05:05:16 funkenstein_: he does mention "advanced society?..

05:05:43 asciilifeform: norway was considerably more expensive for naggum than for just about anyone

05:05:52 asciilifeform: on account of how he ended up - literally - taxed to death

05:06:26 funkenstein_: ok that context does help thanks

05:06:46 asciilifeform: (short version: he decided that he could easily live off the consulting pay from working a few months / year. no. gov. decided that he must be secretly working the remainder of the year, and demanded tax, which he could not afford to pay. was driven into penury and died of self-neglect from easily treatable diseases)

05:07:22 funkenstein_: it is an often discussed irony that technology decreases leisure time

05:07:34 asciilifeform: but overall he was, i think, referring to the more prosaic fact that it costs a hell of a lot to ~not live like a 17 y.o. shit~

05:08:06 asciilifeform: that is, having four walls to sit in without strangers sharing the space, to eat real food, to sometimes visit doctors, etc

05:08:38 asciilifeform: this is even aside from the expensive things folks sometimes ~choose~ to do when they grow older, like producing children, etc

05:09:01 pete_dushenski: children, traveling, cars, hobbies...

05:09:21 pete_dushenski: it adds up quickly.

05:09:40 asciilifeform: there are other 'costs' that aren't precisely monetary, like the fact that you can't do the 20 years where you became a serious specialist in something - over again

05:10:06 funkenstein_: the travel one rings true.

05:10:07 pete_dushenski: ah yes, 'opportunity costs'

05:11:10 funkenstein_: damn in norway? that is surprising, from what i hear of social system there

05:12:06 funkenstein_: anyway, the irony is that he is.. while complaining about it.. donating his time to write the piece

05:12:15 funkenstein_: for us to discuss here now

05:12:39 asciilifeform: funkenstein_: a usenet post (or, for that matter, me speaking here) is more like a fart

05:12:45 asciilifeform: than 'donated time'

05:13:01 asciilifeform: it doesn't soak up concentration of the kind that is a serious limited resource in a thinking person's day

05:13:07 funkenstein_: useful work

05:13:23 funkenstein_: you can't be serious

05:13:34 asciilifeform: next time you're hungry, try eating this 'useful work'

05:13:38 funkenstein_: i'm sure you dream IRC

05:14:12 funkenstein_: I'll stick with oats and water

05:15:00 funkenstein_: I had a dream, something happenend in channel, and you or someone said "six months! right on schedule"

05:15:23 asciilifeform: wasn't me

05:15:28 funkenstein_: hehe

05:15:33 *: asciilifeform doesn't recall doing the 'six months' thing personally, either

05:15:46 funkenstein_: so it's a thing?

05:16:09 funkenstein_: i mean, past the excellent Yeshiva post

05:16:11 asciilifeform: it was a maxim made up by either mircea_popescu or pete_dushenski (forgot who)

05:16:22 asciilifeform: whereby a n00b 'must read log for 6 mo' before he can make any sense

05:16:29 funkenstein_: :D

05:16:47 funkenstein_: maybe that's what it was

05:16:52 *: asciilifeform is still not certain that he 'makes sense' even today

05:21:28 pete_dushenski: for that, i've received a hell of a deal.

05:23:21 pete_dushenski: i couldn't imagine having spent the last year and a bit more productively, even if, yes, it wasn't free. but what of value is ?

05:25:28 funkenstein_: the whole shebang maybe?

05:26:04 pete_dushenski: ?

05:26:29 funkenstein_: hawking said, the universe is the ultimate free lunch

19:02:13 ascii_field: it was begging for bullet for years

19:02:34 mircea_popescu: (peer over irc acquisition never worked worth a shit - the reason it was moved off freenode for instance is that it needed a special ircd to have even a vague chance)

19:02:50 ascii_field: what's special in that one

19:02:54 mircea_popescu: but i am very much perturbed by your proposition that it worked until recently. to what degree worked ?

19:02:55 ascii_field: i'm not seeing any oddities

19:03:01 mircea_popescu: can you say, count all the peers you ever got off irc ?

19:03:02 ascii_field: mircea_popescu: i got peers from it

19:03:21 ascii_field: ever since i've snipped out the gavindns seeds & the hardcoded seeds from my own tree

19:03:32 mircea_popescu: did you actually do a full sync that was throughout dependent on irc as sole primary peer source ?

19:04:02 ascii_field: one full sync and several partial (into the high 200k's)

19:04:21 mircea_popescu: ascii_field iirc the problem was something about how /who flooded the client. so they made a limit so it only shows 100 entries

19:04:27 ascii_field: (terminated through no fault of their own, simply because wanted to start from scratch when testing patches)

19:04:28 mircea_popescu: but then botched it and it always showed the same 100

19:04:35 mircea_popescu: which then flooded the clients in question so they stopped working

19:04:43 ascii_field: l0l!

19:04:46 mircea_popescu: ikr?

19:04:52 ascii_field: this almost certainly stopped being a problem ages ago

19:04:56 ascii_field: as the thing (mostly) died

19:04:59 mircea_popescu: aha.

19:05:01 mircea_popescu: still, special.

19:05:46 ascii_field: so irc on butcher block?

19:05:50 mircea_popescu: can you discern from whence you sit if the following is a possible explanation : you got now and again (rarely) a peer, which gave you its lists of peers, which is how you actually synced.

19:05:55 mircea_popescu: irc on butcher block.

19:06:04 ascii_field: well of course that's how i synced

19:06:20 *: ascii_field whets knife

19:06:26 mircea_popescu: so maybe the "doesn't work" vs "worked 3 days ago" is simply that you ran yours for a day and ben_vulpes ran his for fifteen minutes.

19:06:38 ascii_field: quite possibly.

19:07:07 ascii_field: i will remind readers that 'irc on butcher block' means a 100% reliance on seeds we enter in config. and also on specifying node's external ipv4.

19:07:16 mircea_popescu: aye.

19:07:18 ascii_field: which is, i suppose, as it should be. but means that: we need seeds.

19:08:05 mircea_popescu: i will provide no less than three, on physically separate machines, provided this can actually be made to work. which depends on excellent documentation.

19:08:25 ascii_field: mircea_popescu: do you presently have a system where the thing builds ?

19:09:01 mircea_popescu: i've not presently seen a package.

19:29:24 mircea_popescu: yes, this means that three people out of five would starve. guess what ? four of five starve now.

19:30:29 ascii_field: then i ask mircea_popescu, as best proof of this conjecture, to supply two people who know arse from elbow re: therealbitcoin from this pool

19:30:30 mircea_popescu: nonspecialisation would be strictly a better outcome. the only problem with it is that it relies on falsifying the "we are all human" dogma.

19:30:36 mircea_popescu: clearly only two out of the five are human.

19:30:46 mircea_popescu: haha.

19:30:54 mircea_popescu: no, the two would pointedly NOT know it.

19:31:01 ascii_field: not specifically

19:31:11 ascii_field: but, say, able to tell arse from elbow after, say, a month or two

19:31:31 mircea_popescu: eh get out. mod6 and jurov. what now ?

19:31:35 mircea_popescu: and i can keep picking pairs.

19:32:21 mircea_popescu: i dunno... iirc mod6 couldn't get the laptop to open last i saw him :D

19:32:40 mircea_popescu: something about the lock not being bsd or what was it

19:33:00 ascii_field: likewise, when mircea_popescu has occasion to visit a doctor, does he visit an 'obsolete' specialist, or just some fella who had a 'general sense of sanity' and decided, on a weekend lark, to open an anatomy book for an hour or two ?

19:33:19 mircea_popescu: last time i visited a doctor, it was doctor levy

19:33:39 mircea_popescu: i was about six, and my parents somehow had found an old jew - complete with chained pocketwatch - to be my personal physician

19:34:01 mircea_popescu: he was very much what i describe (not really what you charicaturize, obviously)

19:34:14 ascii_field: lucky then, that mircea_popescu did not need a doctor.

19:34:23 mircea_popescu: lucky indeed.

19:34:37 mircea_popescu: but i have some, however marginal, hope - that by the time i actually do, one might actually exist.

19:37:06 assbot: Specialization Is For Insects ... ( http://bit.ly/1LwOVN0 )

19:37:46 thestringpuller: was thinking about you in traffic this morning ascii_field

19:38:04 thestringpuller: thought to myself, "ascii has to deal with this shit for 4 hours a day. no use in my gettin' upset"

19:38:20 ascii_field: thestringpuller: closer to 2 on avg.

19:39:24 thestringpuller: that's my mentors favorite quote btw ascii_field

19:40:23 mircea_popescu: ascii_field i dunno about insects, but it is certainly a cheap if ineffectual way to assuage one's feelings of inadequacy.

19:40:29 mircea_popescu: then you get jwz's all over.

19:40:36 mircea_popescu: they're all specialists, and all in something else.

19:40:51 mircea_popescu: consequently nobody's responsible for anything and whatever.

19:41:14 ascii_field: can we distinguish shit from shinola, even if only to the extend of admitting the existence of shinola ?

19:41:29 ascii_field: jwz != perelman

19:41:39 mircea_popescu: sure.

19:41:47 mircea_popescu: but to their wives, they're interchangeable.

19:41:49 mircea_popescu: hence - divorce.

19:42:12 *: ascii_field doesn't recall perelman so much as threatening to have a wife

19:42:14 mircea_popescu: to their waiter - which they don't have - to their doctor - which idem - to their life, whatever it means, they're interchangeable.

19:42:56 ascii_field: i must confess that ^ makes literally no sense to me

19:43:11 ascii_field: why would they be interchangeable to their wives (supposing each had a wife) ?

19:43:17 mircea_popescu: ok. lety's walk through the path.

19:43:40 mircea_popescu: guy is 3. he is easily the equal of anything life throws his way. master of his destiny, the three year old roars.

19:44:33 mircea_popescu: a decade passes, and the thirteen year old is confronted with the sad circumstance that hanna likes basketball players and rachel likes football players, and to become either you gotta talk to the respective coach, and the coach says you gotta spend all your time practicing. well... he can't readily spend all his time twice over.

19:44:56 thestringpuller: what about guy who is on all the teams?

19:45:11 mircea_popescu: at which point, guy specializes, and takes rachel. another guy, coming later, takes hanna. for less effort, but lesser pickings. and so with everyone.

19:45:21 thestringpuller: guy who has letter jacket from baseball, basketball and football.

19:45:30 thestringpuller: couldn't he date hanna and rachel at same time?

19:45:36 mircea_popescu: then a kid from australia comes by, wants to play tennis, and well... none of the boys can play. because... mind you... not their speciality.

19:46:57 mircea_popescu: you ever seen birthday girl ascii_field ?

19:47:10 ascii_field: nope

19:47:20 ascii_field: what was it

19:47:47 mircea_popescu: an excelent film, see it sometime. the plot is that a russian whore (which just means woman in her 20s) sells herself off to an english eunuch

19:47:53 mircea_popescu: (which just means man in his 20s)

19:48:14 mircea_popescu: she, of course, has a boy back home. and that boy... comes to check her out.

19:48:36 mircea_popescu: the way this movie is generally perceived is "oh, russian mob and mail order bride scam". nothing of the kind. the russian boy is pretty much playing it by the ear,

19:48:56 mircea_popescu: and there's a most endeering scheme where he and the current guy his girl is ... with, let's say, walk in the woods.

19:49:17 mircea_popescu: and the russian tries to talk to the brit. plainly, man to man. it involves some kickjumps in the vegetation. the other backs off like a cat from a calendar.

19:49:46 mircea_popescu: it all goes to shit, but ~after~ that.

19:50:07 mircea_popescu: why exactly can't a random english kid talk the basic language of the other ?

19:50:18 ascii_field: because orc ?

19:50:23 mircea_popescu: what is this orc.

19:50:27 ascii_field: is this yet another 'humans good, orcs bad' yarn

19:50:30 mircea_popescu: yes, each thinks the other an orc.

19:50:31 ascii_field: because those are a snore

19:50:40 mircea_popescu: i just liked that scene. also nicole kidman.

19:51:08 mircea_popescu: it demands an explanation. WHY is it that the brit can't talk to the other ? he DID actually come in peace.

19:51:28 mircea_popescu: up until that point, the big reveal (for him), where he discovers that his inferiority complex to "civilisation" is unfounded.

19:51:46 mircea_popescu: you recall the amply discussed "soviet realisation". the funny thing is, those people's sons had... a very similar realisation.

19:51:51 mircea_popescu: except this time, re the west.

19:52:08 ascii_field: aha.

19:52:41 mircea_popescu: just how fucking hard is it to speak another's language ?

19:52:49 ascii_field: today you will find open discussion among thinking ru sphere folks, that 'islamic picture of western civ is essentially correct'

19:54:24 mircea_popescu: how much fucking polymacy does it take to get a fucking joke!

19:55:25 ascii_field: it is, at least partly, why i left academia

19:55:32 ascii_field: i.e. having to be in the same elevator as those people.

19:55:38 mircea_popescu: i can see it.

19:55:48 *: mircea_popescu was blessed with an early life in a land with no elevators

19:55:54 mircea_popescu: thinkaboutit.jpg

19:56:40 williamdunne: The women in Romania were beautiful, but I think Czech Republic had it beat out

19:57:02 chetty: large buildings (with elevators) look remarkably like beehives

19:57:29 mircea_popescu: williamdunne generally agreed upon fact.

19:58:02 williamdunne: Jesus Christ though, when I met the person at the bank I'd been working with for the past few months though..

19:58:03 williamdunne: Holy shit

19:58:05 williamdunne: Just wow

19:58:07 mircea_popescu: chetty oh, and no "access control" either. as late as 1988 you cvould just fucking WALK INTO the super-secret-only-not-military-because-the-smart-kids-hated-corporals itci

19:58:15 mircea_popescu: ie, the place working to make missile controls and whatnot.

19:58:25 mircea_popescu: williamdunne nailedher ?

19:58:37 williamdunne: Christ I wish

19:58:47 mircea_popescu: nuts. what do you wish ?

19:58:47 williamdunne: I'm too babyfaced to do any damage

19:58:53 mircea_popescu: didja ask her ?

19:58:59 ascii_field: mircea_popescu: we had elevators. which didn't work. fun on 15th floor

19:59:11 mircea_popescu: ascii_field see this is it, 4 floors everywhere.

19:59:17 williamdunne: "Hey, once we've got this account opened, could I bend you over your desk and fuck you in front of your colleague?"

20:01:22 mircea_popescu: ascii_field but to round it off : i am unimpressed with that utter fear of all usian pencildicks, "omg prison". seriously, lifetime pension ? tyvm. i am also unimpressed with the "difficulties" of "orcs" aka niggers in the us. i have never had a problem making sense of them or the reverse. and THIS is why i say the flight to suburbus is a purely sexual problem.

20:01:37 mircea_popescu: there is a deep link between sex and communication, not least of all because sex is the communication of biological material.

20:01:53 mircea_popescu: williamdunne wouldja stop trying to make her decisions for her ?

20:02:00 mircea_popescu: not your fucking job. specialize already.

20:02:25 williamdunne: Get your point

20:02:42 mircea_popescu: "we reject gender specialisation, which is not something anyone asked us about - to focus on professional specialization, which is both impossible and counterproductive"

20:02:49 trinque: williamdunne: I recall working IT at a hotel in FL when I was 19

20:02:59 trinque: I'm sure I was "babyfaced"

20:03:11 mircea_popescu: is this slang for pimplefaced or something ?

20:03:28 ascii_field: so when will mircea_popescu be getting on the u.s. prison plane ?

20:03:29 trinque: chick who was my boss seemed overly friendly, went ahead and chatted her up one day after work

20:03:34 trinque: fucked her for a couple months thereafter

20:03:39 ascii_field: there is probably a nice lifetime pension reserved for him here

20:03:40 trinque: learned a lot :D

20:03:46 funkenstein_: the orcs are the pigs, the stormtroopers. right right?

20:03:50 mircea_popescu: ascii_field well i plan to shoot a few schmucks first. so just as soon as they can line up enough schmucks willing to be shot.

20:04:13 williamdunne: mircea_popescu: It means young looking

20:04:20 mircea_popescu: that's a drawback ?!

20:04:22 williamdunne: noice

20:04:27 williamdunne: mircea_popescu: Young as in 15

20:04:39 williamdunne: Not young as if in pre-30s

20:04:47 chetty: jailbait

20:04:50 mircea_popescu: i still dun see it.

20:05:10 mircea_popescu: williamdunne they dont have sex jail in the czech republic.

20:05:41 williamdunne: This was in Bucharest, but yeah

20:06:31 williamdunne: Aha, nope, thats not me

20:07:41 mircea_popescu: anyway, eastern europe bank strategy has been to hire supermodels because a) they're stupid b) they're cheap and c) the stupid and cheap peasants that are their parents still own their own real estate and the best way to get them to lose it to austrian banks is by hiring thei better looking daughters. which they don't fuck because weirdos, but merely drool over..

20:08:06 mircea_popescu: the same womenz exist in london, you don't see them in retail bank branches because nobody gives a shit about the english peasant.

20:08:18 williamdunne: Aha

20:08:26 williamdunne: Well, I wouldn't call her stupid. She's been rather useful

20:08:27 williamdunne: but yeah

20:08:36 mircea_popescu: i'm sure she's a specialist.

21:05:36 mircea_popescu: "C++ is philosophically and cognitively unsound as it forces a violation of all known epistemological processes on the programmer. as a language, it requires you to specify in great detail what you do not know in order to obtain the experience necessary to learn it. "

21:06:11 mircea_popescu: you know there's actually a strong possibility this assertion is correct. from my experience discussing programming with girls that don't program, it often comes to some derivative of exactly this.

21:06:40 mircea_popescu: either "how do you know that", "how was i supposed to know that" or the more broad "this shit is just fucking stupid already"

21:06:53 williamdunne: On a side note something I found to be interesting; whenever it came up that I preferred the traditional model of a wife being submissive to her husband who goes to work while she performs domestic duties, it was made out that I am a neo-nazi by people my own age

21:08:10 williamdunne: mircea_popescu: Well, I didn't realize quite how deep SJW'ism was engraved into the souls of them

21:08:15 mircea_popescu: but for what it's worth, i don't believe C actually does this. i believe it is merely perceived to do so.

21:08:28 ascii_field: mircea_popescu: c - no

21:08:33 williamdunne: I never even said anything particularly controversial in my opinion; only that I would prefer a wife who didn't work over one that did

21:08:41 ascii_field: cpp, and other idiocies that force-rape the programmer with 'classes' etc - do.

21:09:08 mircea_popescu: williamdunne why would you prefer a wife that didn't work, and if you do, how do you know you're not actually looking for a mistress ?

21:09:19 mircea_popescu: ascii_field even cpp. let's model this on the act of telling a joke.

21:09:31 williamdunne: mircea_popescu: Wife was simply for their understanding, I'm not particularly concerned with the idea of marriage

21:09:48 mircea_popescu: now, you've probably heard enough jokes in your time to know there are two basic styles. one style is "some guy walks into a bar" and the other style is "this bloke joe walks into the bar".

21:10:14 ascii_field: (this-bloke (gensym) (walked-into (bar)))

21:10:17 mircea_popescu: the former is often trampled on by scoping questions by the [lamer] members of the audience. the second uses misdirection (the name's a throwaway) to perhaps enhance the results.,

21:10:46 mircea_popescu: "why should i know who some guy's name is to be able to tell a joke ?" "you only need to know the name if you plan to reuse it"

21:21:45 mircea_popescu: the notion that one can run out of it by running out of c is ridiculous.

21:22:16 mircea_popescu: ascii_field this goes right into our discussion about how the only reason lisp is ok where c is shot is that the hordes haven't sat on lisp but on c, would have been the other way around if they had sat the other way.

21:22:20 mircea_popescu: preciselythis.

21:22:29 ascii_field: naggum pointed this out

21:22:30 mircea_popescu: williamdunne technically, it's all "gain".

21:22:37 ascii_field: but it is not a complete story

21:22:50 mircea_popescu: ascii_field one day ima have an original thought. i swear.

21:22:50 ascii_field: rather like saying 'this bridge is only here because sufficiently large column of tanks has not yet gone on it'

21:22:55 mircea_popescu: (to my compiler)

21:22:58 ascii_field: technically - guaranteed true.

21:24:37 mircea_popescu: williamdunne what you'll be more interested will be to hear that a) romanian uses a unified concept for gain, which covers "gain from playing the one man bandit", "gain for gainful employment", "gain from having said a funny joke", "gaining time" etc, but the actual word, cistiga, is a direct usage of the latin castigat.

21:24:48 mircea_popescu: as in, castigat ridendo mores. to, literally, beat into shape.

21:28:19 cazalla: williamdunne, well because she's a good mum (the hate my job part is really just having less time for oneself)

21:29:41 williamdunne: cazalla: Fair nuff, I'm not so keen on the idea of children that I have to look after so between myself and domestic duties they would still have time for themselves, you would hope

21:30:40 cazalla: why do you prefer the traditional model of a wife if no desire for kids?

21:31:03 trinque: think he means that *he* has to bother with

21:31:13 mircea_popescu: either because he wants to buy a whore rather than rent ; or because he wants a mistress but is affraid of her bulls.

21:31:33 mircea_popescu: strangely enough, two very different problems manifesting in the same can.

21:31:47 williamdunne: Permanent companionship/sexual fulfilment without the hassle of children?

21:31:58 williamdunne: mircea_popescu: Not really scared of bulls, but I don't want to share

21:31:59 mircea_popescu: this still doesn't answer.

21:32:22 cazalla: williamdunne, biggest mistake i made at your age was believing i needed to get into a relationship with women to maintain regular sex

21:32:47 williamdunne: cazalla: I don't just mean sex

21:33:13 mircea_popescu: are you looking for a woman to worship you, that you really don't give a shit about ; or for a woman to worship yourself, that doesn't really give a shit about you.

21:33:29 williamdunne: Option 3, I suppose

21:33:34 mircea_popescu: there is no option 3.

21:33:46 williamdunne: Well in which case option 1 is the beyond obvious choice

21:34:06 mircea_popescu: never mind what's obvious, nobody asked your impression of collected social pressure. question's what you would rather.

21:34:42 williamdunne: Option 1, its an obvious choice

21:34:49 williamdunne: Not option 1 because societal pressure

21:34:50 mircea_popescu: well so then why shouldn't she work.

21:35:14 trinque: everyone needs something productive to do; what's she going to do, stare at a picture of you all day while you're off living?

21:35:28 mircea_popescu: ^ very good statement of the problem.

21:35:51 williamdunne: Why should she work? Are there not alternatives to a job

21:35:57 williamdunne: kept woman type thing

21:36:05 mircea_popescu: but that's for option 2 folk.

21:36:52 williamdunne: Do you have to worship a paid for companion?

21:37:03 trinque: wtf do you think paid for is?

21:37:20 mircea_popescu: don't the online whores these days call it exactly that ?

21:37:47 mircea_popescu: what is it, "tribute"

21:37:55 trinque: williamdunne: I have had chicks that don't have a career, and seen the detriment idleness can be

21:38:06 trinque: so it's a garden, or whatever, still she needs to see that her life has some kind of point

21:38:09 williamdunne: trinque as if in you pay for their upkeep

21:38:10 williamdunne: Oh sure

21:38:18 williamdunne: But I wouldn't call that work

21:38:29 mircea_popescu: why not ?

21:38:47 cazalla: well if she's not kept busy raising your kids or some other hobby, don't be surprised when she ends up in the bed of another

21:38:52 mircea_popescu: if it's worth paying for is work, and if it's not then it doesn't answer to this line.

21:40:22 mircea_popescu: "Because I am not religious, I have no mystical conception of an afterlife. To me, a person lives on not in Heaven or Hell but instead in the minds and hearts of those they touched while alive"

21:40:23 williamdunne: By work, I strictly mean doing something which you have to do to support yourself financially

21:40:43 mircea_popescu: fucktarded progressive sectarian nuts. "i have no religion except this wonky religion that i claim not to be one"

21:40:55 mircea_popescu: williamdunne like sucking cock ?

21:41:16 williamdunne: If thats what you're paid to do, sure

21:41:51 mircea_popescu: were you basically meaning to say "my idea of ideal marriage is where im just rich enough to not give a fuck" but misstated it as "woman should not work out of the house" and ended up irritating random people ?

21:41:53 trinque: that's work

21:50:56 mircea_popescu: i swear the quality of tx relaying is shittening every day.

21:51:25 mircea_popescu: the number of txn broadcast through one node used to be pretty much zero. i would guess by now it's over 10%. which is fucking insane.

21:52:58 mircea_popescu: (for the amaterus : txn propagation has a lot in common with epidemiology, a topic recently trouched upon here. in any case : the spots where a transaction goes from "unknown" to "broadcast through one node" to "broadcast to the whole net" are interesting in the general case. and the first move thereof a very good measure of "quality", basically speaking the inverse of an infection's pathogenicity)

21:54:15 mircea_popescu: (seeing how a transaction lives as such a finite interval before being included in a block, the % of txn that live as "known to one" vs the total "known to all" is of particular interest)

23:15:11 trinque: care to restate?

23:16:57 trinque: ag3nt_zer0: structuralism smacks of "that stolen-from is not your stolen-from; it's all of ours"

23:17:26 trinque: an attempt of many to claim some aggregate which supercedes the individual

23:18:11 trinque: so if it's one of those, oldest swindle there is

23:18:59 trinque: I don't see anything new; talented people try to do interesting things, and others try to hold him back to varying degrees

23:24:56 ag3nt_zer0: trinque: well I had no idea what structuralism was but read something by mircer_popescu and at the end he said "welcome to the post-post- structuralist world that the internet has enabled" or something to that effect... that got me looking at structuralisma dn post structuralism and I was just confused because what I read was that structuralism was a reaction against humanism -and- tradition,, but as far as i understand,

23:30:31 trinque: yep

23:30:40 trinque: ag3nt_zer0: how do you define traditionalism?

23:32:50 ag3nt_zer0: trinque: shotgun definition: orientation toward a suprahuman or transcendental "dimension"

23:33:21 ag3nt_zer0: Plato was a traditional philosopher

23:36:04 trinque: it's interesting then to see humanism in contrast to that term, as humanism seems to imagine this platonic form of "human" which we all resemble, and are therefore intrinsically valuable somehow

23:36:16 ag3nt_zer0: it is really perennial traditionalism, or perennialism that I am thinking of

23:38:03 ag3nt_zer0: well I suppose one way to english the difference is that a traditional orientation would be vertical (upward, toward the absolute, what not), vs horizontal (man is measure of all things and human contentment and "happiness" main goals)

23:40:39 trinque: I tend to be wary of systems that try to provide a taxonomy of human action

23:41:47 trinque: ag3nt_zer0: I see roughly what you're pointing at; what do you make of it?

23:42:47 trinque: ag3nt_zer0: more pointedly, I tend to assume that where someone makes broad generalizations about "being", they've actually given me a command

23:43:21 trinque: and I tend to interpret it along those lines, rather than there actually existing some transcendental realm where concepts exist, dance about, generating meaning

23:45:29 ag3nt_zer0: trinque: well the stuff of matter must rest upon something, no?

23:45:46 trinque: thought that which matter rests upon was an open question
