00:00:02 mircea_popescu: so ? still automatic citizenship!11

00:00:36 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: naive idea. they unplugged this, to avoid ru proper being swamped with the entire contents of kazahstan, ua, baltics, all the provinces

00:00:49 mircea_popescu: mod6: me too, that threw me off. but maybe i did something silly with the install by creating a root account? i'm not super clued on deb... but it asked me to make a root account first, then a user account. so that was kinda bizzare to me. << no that's how debian did it for what, 10, 15 years ?

00:01:07 asciilifeform: it was still swamped, against rules, and the people who did the swamping accounted for a large fraction of the bums which appeared during collapse

00:02:08 asciilifeform: at any rate, even if herr putin mailed me a ru passport as perverse birthday present, fat lot of good that would do. need a lot more than a passport to leave the 'big zone.'

00:02:48 jurov: only hungary does not need to fear such swamping can do "if you had ancestors in Big Hungary 100yr ago, here's your passport"

00:02:56 asciilifeform: ireland, i think, too

00:03:28 jurov: *Great Hungary to label the delusion properly

00:03:29 mircea_popescu: finally done with logs o.O

00:03:41 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: congrats

00:03:47 mircea_popescu: jurov jews are similar. romania too.

00:03:59 mircea_popescu: pretty much everyone, really. germany definitely, if you were born there.

00:04:20 mircea_popescu: us citizens on army bases routinely get dual citizenship kids if they become pregnant and deliver

00:04:50 asciilifeform: i've been informed that the usual excursions where people take pregnant women to usa, have reversed.

00:05:02 asciilifeform: or maybe it was just orlov.

00:05:26 undata: canada will readmit children of a canadian citizen

00:05:30 undata: sadly I'm two steps removed

00:05:59 mircea_popescu: i think the bar for thai citizenship is having sex with a trannie

00:06:00 asciilifeform: at any rate, no one is stranded in usa solely because of passports.

00:06:04 BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> mod6: me too, that threw me off. but maybe i did something silly with the install by creating a root account? i'm not super clued on deb... but it asked me to make a root account first, then a user account. so that was kinda bizzare to me. << no that's how debian did it for what, 10, 15 years ? << I thought it was just Ubuntu that only made a user account they'd turn into a super sudoer

00:06:05 asciilifeform: one can buy passport

00:06:09 asciilifeform: just like one can buy freedom

00:06:18 undata: mircea_popescu: haaaa

00:08:45 jurov: there must be some statistic how price of uprooting increases with age

00:09:03 jurov: hope bitcoin will grow faster

00:09:42 asciilifeform: how does it increase with age?

00:10:43 undata: don't buy a bunch of garbage if you're headed out.

00:10:44 *: asciilifeform must have missed something

00:11:09 jurov: at 20 it's pretty much 0

00:11:12 asciilifeform: undata: garbage can be packed into crates and shipped

00:11:14 jurov: then it goes up

00:11:22 asciilifeform: undata: if one must have it

00:11:23 undata: asciilifeform: yep, or that.

00:12:07 undata: jurov: I would say maybe leaving behind business contacts has a cost, but the internet solves that.

00:12:17 undata: and bitcoin solves getting paid by them

00:12:25 BingoBoingo: Buy truck, drive to panama, 4 digit number to move truck around the Darien last time I priced it.

00:12:27 asciilifeform: i guess there's the elementary fact that a 70 y.o. head of a firm cannot turn into a 20. y.o. apprentice again

00:12:28 TheNewDeal: rapeghost =?= rg

00:12:37 BingoBoingo: TheNewDeal: Yes

00:12:39 jurov: TheNewDeal yes ====

00:12:49 asciilifeform: undata: the internet solves that << if only.

00:13:05 undata: depends on what kind of business then

00:13:07 TheNewDeal: finally serving my sentence

00:13:18 BingoBoingo: TheNewDeal: Mine any news yet?

00:13:51 TheNewDeal: let me run one by you

00:17:29 BingoBoingo: TheNewDeal: Go

00:18:19 TheNewDeal: gotta keep it suuuper seektret

00:18:43 BingoBoingo: lol

00:21:29 asciilifeform: git clone http://therealbitcoin.org/test/bitcoin.git <<<< wtf nonsense is this, that's 2014 bitcoind in there.

00:21:50 thestringpuller: asciilifeform: do you know who maintains that site?

00:21:58 asciilifeform: jurov?

00:24:14 asciilifeform: at any rate, imho git is entirely the wrong pill here.

00:24:15 asciilifeform: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=22-10-2014#888734

00:24:15 assbot: Logged on 22-10-2014 20:33:59; asciilifeform: i suggest going with whoever had the mailing list idea. emphasize the 'we sign things and so mechanism doesn't matter' aspect.

00:24:49 asciilifeform: static www hosting latest stable result of composition of gpg-signed patches from mailing list - yes, more yoga, but ultimately the Right Thing.

00:25:19 jurov: yes, i just wanted to test, as it says

00:25:30 asciilifeform: git etc. is very tempting, sweet, yes

00:25:40 asciilifeform: but wrong for this occasion.

00:26:18 BingoBoingo: CVS ???

00:26:21 asciilifeform: forsaking version control systems entirely!

00:26:30 asciilifeform: the only way to emphasize the gravity of submitting a change to bitcoind.

00:27:18 jurov: um

00:27:37 jurov: that could apply once we're close to the ideal

00:27:41 nubbins`: ^

00:27:44 asciilifeform: nope.

00:27:46 jurov: or are we already?

00:27:58 asciilifeform: it's the only way to actually get somewhere with the old tub we have.

00:28:58 jurov: so you say what will be hosted - only list of patches and a script

00:29:05 asciilifeform: the somewhere, incidentally, is a stable satoshi-based gizmo worth using as a base for rewrite (idk about other folks, i shall rewrite for my own pleasure if no one wants, once finished with current affairs) - and perhaps worth printing!

00:29:08 jurov: that will verify and apply them?

00:29:22 asciilifeform: suggested script.

00:29:27 asciilifeform: only really need stock gpg to verify.

00:29:33 asciilifeform: and pubkeys naturally

00:30:29 asciilifeform: jurov: also host a copy of the present state of the mailing list, perhaps

00:30:39 asciilifeform: static html.

00:31:07 jurov: yes

00:31:10 asciilifeform: since, at least in the mechanism i suggested, no message shall be ever published that is not signed, any reader can verify that the mailing list is authentic.

00:32:45 BingoBoingo: <jurov> so you say what will be hosted - only list of patches and a script << I actually imagined set of books for the core an annumal supplement book of refinemnts

00:32:46 jurov: with a patch to mailman?

00:33:01 asciilifeform: patch to mailman << why ?

00:33:14 jurov: to reject unsigned msgs

00:33:17 asciilifeform: aha

00:33:29 asciilifeform: yes, that's the only work-like part of this proposal, yes

00:34:27 asciilifeform: incidentally, anyone who wants to mirror the proposed mailing list, will be able to do so at his pleasure.

00:34:30 asciilifeform: instant anti-ddos pill

00:34:49 BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: DO you want me to rip my openbsd cd's and upload them somewhere?

00:34:56 asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: what vintage?

00:34:57 thestringpuller: asciilifeform: I may be able to fulfill your order with nubbins` help

00:35:14 thestringpuller: It would be leatherbound and you can also engrave

00:35:35 asciilifeform: thestringpuller: afaik it has not yet been decided what ought to be between the pages...

00:35:47 thestringpuller: a writer buddy of mine does bookbinding of journals as one of his fanatical things

00:35:59 asciilifeform: i've bound an odd book here & there.

00:35:59 BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: 5.5

00:36:04 thestringpuller: so once you figure that out, nubbins can do a good printing job

00:36:08 nubbins`: it's good exercise for the fingers

00:36:14 thestringpuller: and then you can send it here to have it bound

00:36:15 nubbins`: and an excuse to own a small hammer

00:36:16 asciilifeform: 5.5 is almost new

00:36:36 BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: 5.5 is the first version after I cared to get the physical CD's

00:36:50 BingoBoingo: 5.6 comes out next month

00:36:59 *: danielpbarron got 2 copies of 5.5 from 2 different sources

00:37:05 *: asciilifeform is presently engaged in trying to collect the smallest (bitwise) possible bsd+gcc+etc combo that will build bitcoind 0.5-0.6

00:37:40 asciilifeform: cross-compilation for linux/x86

00:37:41 danielpbarron: and by copies i mean cd sets

00:38:27 jurov: i'll look into the mailman

00:38:39 asciilifeform: my present emulation, incidentally, is not to have network access

00:38:44 asciilifeform: controlled through (emulated) serial tty.

00:38:53 asciilifeform: and this, imho, is proper.

00:40:43 nubbins`: nice

00:42:03 *: BingoBoingo doesn't know if OpenBSD plus userland can be stripped to 1 FDD...

00:42:22 decimation: asciilifeform: bitcoind begs to be split into at least 3 programs

00:42:25 bounce: don't think so.

00:42:36 bounce: there's picobsd or nanobsd or whatwasit

00:43:18 bounce: for the one floppy trick you'd probably need qnx or so, but not sure if bitcoind would fit with that, even after you kicked out photon and the browser

00:43:51 BingoBoingo: bounce: Many of those abandoned, poor rng and gcc as FreeBSD derivatives

00:43:54 bounce: decimation: which three are you proposing?

00:44:12 BingoBoingo: <bounce> for the one floppy trick you'd probably need qnx or so, but not sure if bitcoind would fit with that, even after you kicked out photon and the browser << QNX that Blackberry thing?

00:44:37 bounce: qnx was a thing way before blackberry existed

00:44:57 BingoBoingo: bounce: I imagine BitcoinNetwork, BitcoinBlockhandler, BitcoinWallet

00:45:01 bounce: they did a one floppy demo once (twice, there's the xmas edition) that let you boot a full graphical desktop plus browser

00:45:26 BingoBoingo: <bounce> qnx was a thing way before blackberry existed << Indeed, but way for a decent RTOS to ruin the last Mobile OS

00:45:34 bounce: oh c'mon with the quoting

00:47:02 BingoBoingo: What there's a temporary Vag shortage so queefing is out of the question

00:47:45 bounce: well yeah I'm not too happy bb bought it up, no matter how good it'd be for them. qnx was a bit floundering though, that with everyone running off to leen0x and no real hardware incentive for what makes qnx special. just throw more hardware at the problem and it's sorted. (the beancounters think)

00:48:29 decimation: 1.) blockchain gather/relay 2.) transaction accumulate/relay 3.) blockchain database 4.) own transaction receive/generate 5.) wallet crypto

00:48:51 bounce: then again, bb is floundering too. won't be the first time some company buys up something good for a bout of fleeing forward, goes down anyway and takes the good with it

00:49:48 BingoBoingo: bounce: Well worse is when the company buys a floundering product and hides it to success like Intel did with DEC ALpha

00:50:01 asciilifeform: decimation: bitcoind begs to be split into at least 3 programs << of which only 1 is necessary !

00:50:37 asciilifeform: bounce: floppy << not for the whole orchestra, no. gcc alone, think! but to get minimal skeletal userland.

00:51:00 bounce: switch to a smaller cc first? :-p

00:51:11 asciilifeform: fabrice bellard's tinycc would be neat, but no cpp.

00:51:27 asciilifeform: and satoshi crapped out cpp and used cpp-dependant dependencies.

00:51:39 BingoBoingo: Boost is a bitch

00:51:55 asciilifeform: if someone wants to try building a cpp preprocessor using tinycc - be the hero, yes.

00:51:57 joecool: BingoBoingo: bb10 is not that bad, come on

00:52:05 bounce: boost is a bit ludicrous, even for the c++ course

00:52:11 mircea_popescu: <jurov> there must be some statistic how price of uprooting increases with age >> it does ? why would it ?

00:52:22 BingoBoingo: joecool: BB9 was perfect for what a person could expect out of a mobile turd os though

00:52:25 asciilifeform: ^ i did point out.

00:52:29 bounce: why'd you want to distribute the cc if you're going to distribute binaries?

00:52:48 BingoBoingo: bounce: So people can reproduce binaries

00:52:55 asciilifeform: bounce: we were discussing an ideally-portable and self-contained distributable build system.

00:53:08 bounce: then split it in a full build-everything-from-source thing and a shrunk binary-only thing

00:53:09 asciilifeform: that never pulls - anything - off the net on its own accord.

00:53:12 joecool: BingoBoingo: 9? did you mean 7?

00:53:24 asciilifeform: shrunk binary-only thing is the binary.

00:53:33 bounce: full source is never going to work on a floppy, unless you can make xor compression work

00:53:40 asciilifeform: any of the 29 (?) magickey holders can make you one & sign it

00:53:49 asciilifeform: i explained the floppy

00:54:05 BingoBoingo: joecool: Whatever came before 10 and had wifi calling and the vibrating dildo function

00:54:05 asciilifeform: even the source doesn't fit on floppy

00:54:06 bounce: probably flew me by, sorry

00:54:24 joecool: BingoBoingo: i dunno, 10 still has that too

00:55:17 mircea_popescu: <asciilifeform> instant anti-ddos pill << this is like saying that because anyone can wget -m qntra.net that's an anti ddos pill

00:55:25 BingoBoingo: joecool: But 10 doesn't work on preferred hardware.

00:55:37 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: it would be, if it were simple to mirror. and every post signed.

00:55:59 asciilifeform: and presuming folks wanted to.

00:56:11 asciilifeform: need both the will and the way.

00:57:08 cazalla: i got a response from paydici if anyone was interested in yesterdays article http://qntra.net/2014/10/bitpay-to-assist-paydici-to-enable-bitcoin-based-recurring-billing/

00:57:08 assbot: BitPay To Assist Paydici To Enable Bitcoin Based Recurring Billing | Qntra.net

00:59:10 asciilifeform: qnx << a very interesting item, and i loved playing with it when young, but it was inevitably bulldozed by the age of no-you-can't-make-money-selling-close-os-unless-you-re-apple-or-microshit

00:59:17 asciilifeform: *closed

00:59:31 asciilifeform: or, one might add, green hills corp.

00:59:47 asciilifeform: whose owner invented 'linux fud' !

01:00:18 asciilifeform: (their entire business model consists of 'we're rather like linux, but closed-source and nsa-approved, one hundred percent Aryan')

01:01:14 bounce: so qnx lacked military connections and dishonesty to succeed

01:01:46 asciilifeform: actually it had connections, and, afaik, still runs on various 'if they told you they'd have to kill you' hardware - but not a going concern

01:03:20 asciilifeform: at any rate:

01:03:24 asciilifeform: there is nothing magic about qnx.

01:03:33 asciilifeform: it is only less of a turd than other unix-likes because:

01:03:35 asciilifeform: there's less of it.

01:03:41 asciilifeform: (bitwise)

01:03:53 asciilifeform: therefore closer to 'fits in head.'

01:04:12 asciilifeform: about similar (in conceptual 'weight' rather than design!) to the unix described in 'lions book.'

01:04:32 cazalla: http://qntra.net/2014/10/julian-assange-bitcoins-blockchain-most-intellectually-interesting-development-in-the-last-five-years/

01:04:32 assbot: Julian Assange: "Bitcoin's Blockchain Most Intellectually Interesting Development In The Last Five Years | Qntra.net

01:06:51 asciilifeform: http://www.newscientist.com/article/mg17223184.000-did-bubonic-plague-really-cause-the-black-death.html << more interesting.

01:06:51 assbot: Did bubonic plague really cause the Black Death? - health - 24 November 2001 - New Scientist

01:07:51 BingoBoingo: Oh Today's World Series game is competitive

01:09:40 BingoBoingo: Fuck Hunter Pence looks like an extra from Breaking Bad, methed out motherfucker

01:09:48 asciilifeform: 'They are not the first to blame Ebola for an ancient plague. Scientists and classicists in San Diego reported in 1996 that the symptoms of the plague of Athens around 430 BC, described by Thucydides, are remarkably similar to Ebola, including a distinctive retching or hiccupping. Apart from that, many of the symptoms of that plague- ? and one in Constantinople in AD 540 ? -were similar to the Black Death.'

01:10:27 BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Familiar with Hanta or any other new worls scourges?

01:10:44 asciilifeform: 'Eurasian hantaviruses can incubate for up to 42 days, but are not usually directly contagious between people.' (linked piece)

01:12:15 BingoBoingo: The New Reno region mircea_popescu wants to playground eventually as new world hantaviruses, keep your distance from the mice...

01:18:18 decimation: qnx was fun. did they ever have a multiprocessing variant?

01:19:01 decimation: heh http://www.qnx.com/developers/docs/6.3.0SP3/neutrino/sys_arch/smp.html#SMP " Symmetric multiprocessing addresses the issue by running only one copy of Neutrino on all of the system's CPUs."

01:19:01 assbot: QNX Developer Support

01:19:15 BingoBoingo: decimation: BB10? Think it was bigkernellock like OpenBSD though

01:20:35 decimation: the c-machine is a mistake, but ganging multiple c-machines was an even bigger mistake

01:20:50 mircea_popescu: cazalla the sorrow in that "That's about as close as you can get with BitCoin." is delicious.

01:21:37 BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: Cazalla as head of qntra was a gift that keeps giving. Dude knows tone.

01:22:27 mircea_popescu: <assbot> Julian Assange: "Bitcoin's Blockchain Most Intellectually Interesting Development In The Last Five Years | Qntra.net << for sure.

01:22:52 decimation: the implication being that assange has accomplished little with his derpcapade

01:23:06 mircea_popescu: comparatively less does not mean little.

01:23:15 mircea_popescu: it just means everyone else is drowning in their own shit

01:24:20 cazalla: mircea_popescu, the reminder emails will probably get bitpay flagged for spam too

01:24:35 mircea_popescu: nah, they probably paid the payola

01:25:02 mircea_popescu: (the way "spam" works is you pay yahoo 100 bux or w/e, never get fglagged. dun recall right off what google is)

01:25:40 decimation: assange and his crew struck me as a naive bunch whose position is "we want a loving mommy state"

01:26:13 cazalla: decimation, he is quite soft when it comes to shit like aboriginals

01:26:37 decimation: cazalla: interesting. what does that mean exactly? more welfare?

01:27:11 cazalla: more everything at cost to the tax payer

01:27:35 decimation: plus apologizing for forcing their children to go to school and beating them until they learned?

01:27:45 mircea_popescu: lol

01:27:59 mircea_popescu: you know if you dig deep enough everyone's going to have a bunch of idiotic notions.

01:28:03 mircea_popescu: best take people at their peak

01:28:20 thestringpuller: mircea_popescu: All officers and directors voluntarily agreed to the Company's redemption of an aggregate of 12,750,000 shares of common stock for an aggregate payment of $2,491. In doing so, the Company will have further flexibility in continuing to strengthen its balance sheet and ultimately add shareholder value. << could you help me decipher what is going on here accounting wise?

01:29:02 mircea_popescu: they bought back their own stock ?

01:29:09 BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu> best take people at their peak << Great value of a WoT system as here has is you can know what their bottom is

01:29:57 thestringpuller: mircea_popescu: that's what I thought but based on these numbers...($2491 for ~13mn shares doesn't add up to the published market value as it looks like the ask value is ~ 8 cents a share)

01:30:02 mircea_popescu: at any rate, that's what it should mean, regardless what they actuall did.

01:30:10 cazalla: decimation, that's already been done and now they want compensation, the abos want to live off the land but government is determined to stop them no matter how much it costs

01:30:16 mircea_popescu: ;;calc 2,491 / 12,750,000

01:30:16 gribble: Error: Something in there wasn't a valid number.

01:30:20 mircea_popescu: ;;calc 2491 / 12750000

01:30:20 gribble: 0.00019537254902

01:30:25 thestringpuller: ^- see?

01:30:40 thestringpuller: http://investors.btcs.com/ << bottom of page has stock price

01:30:40 mircea_popescu: does it say who it redeemed from ?

01:30:53 thestringpuller: nope

01:30:56 thestringpuller: just "it was redeemed"

01:31:06 decimation: cazalla: that's pretty much how it works in the us and canada too

01:31:10 mircea_popescu: yeah well, basically, this is a disguised gift of stock from directors / interested parties to company

01:31:15 mircea_popescu: designed to increase per share value.

01:31:19 mircea_popescu: borderline fraudulent.

01:31:40 thestringpuller: okay that's what BingoBoingo and I thought. thanks for clarifying.

01:31:54 cazalla: decimation, they're not all bad, i had a good abo mate through school but once they hit 13, they just want to go lighting fires and breaking into corner shops etc etc sniffing a bit of 98 octane as well

01:32:18 decimation: they huff petrol? that's crazy

01:32:49 mircea_popescu: this idea that what people want matters as a universal...

01:32:56 mircea_popescu: who the fuck came up with this dumb shit.

01:32:57 BingoBoingo: Fuck this World Series

01:33:02 cazalla: yeah, they lock the bowser at some petrol stations because they come in with a jerry can, fill up and leave without paying

01:33:21 decimation: I have a friend who works in a hospital indian health service (branch of usg). she says the majority of us indians are drunks

01:33:36 mircea_popescu: decimation so are the majority of irishmen

01:34:02 decimation: ironically the irish got their own 'independence'

01:34:25 cazalla: basically, if ever confronted with violent aboriginal in australia, pop ya petrol tank cap and tell him "good sniff bro"

01:34:33 decimation: lol

01:35:18 *: mircea_popescu kinda likes the smell of gasoline

01:35:53 BingoBoingo: I feel gypped, the Kaufman stadium fountains appear to be off.

01:36:19 BingoBoingo: This is nothing like Ken Griffey Jr presents Baseball

01:37:18 kakobrekla: as promised i have setup a mirror for ze logs - http://log1.bitcoin-assets.com - hosting for the mirror gratuitously provided by mircea_popescu

01:37:18 assbot: #bitcoin-assets log - mirror 1

01:37:32 mircea_popescu: gratuitously means pointlessly yo!

01:38:01 kakobrekla: take it up with mp.

01:38:08 cazalla: mircea_popescu, here ya go, much safer http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Opal_%28fuel%29

01:38:08 assbot: Opal (fuel) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

01:38:29 mircea_popescu: Opal is a variety of low-aromatic << that'd be a problem

01:39:25 decimation: lol they used leaded gas before that?

01:39:38 BingoBoingo: Who didn't use leaded gas?

01:39:47 cazalla: i think that was phased out mid 90s decimation

01:40:00 decimation: even in the us that was gone by the 70's I think

01:40:31 BingoBoingo: For the hell of it I may or may not have driven a tank of leaded gas winter of 2006...

01:40:41 decimation: I guess the ban didn't go into full effect in the us until 96

01:40:44 cazalla: actually, i just checked, phase out began 2000 and ended 2002.. good sniff that

01:40:56 decimation: people bitch because aviation gas in the us still has lead

02:42:29 BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: I can report here on it so copyrasta containment not that strong yet

02:42:52 asciilifeform: stays in - in the sense that not once have i ever seen any reason to give a damn about it

02:43:08 BingoBoingo: Ah, that is a different dilema.

02:43:17 asciilifeform: other than scientific curiosity, re: what fascinates various folks so much

02:43:55 BingoBoingo: Baseball fascinates me in how it seems to be the intersection of dice games and atheleticism

02:44:07 BingoBoingo: That's why I find it betable

02:45:50 BingoBoingo: Also odd things happen in baseball over time. In 2010 people would call prank if you said Tim Lincecum warming up in the bullpen, but it is happening.

02:46:24 *: asciilifeform had to look up 'bullpen'

02:47:24 BingoBoingo: Ah, I guess for context... back in 2010 Lincecum was called the "Freak" for seeming unnaturaly better than any other starting pitcher, but since then... He has more than regressed to mean...

02:48:27 thestringpuller: Braves fans are like that with Craig Kimbrel

02:48:55 BingoBoingo: Mastery of Bullpen usage was how Larussa got the Cardinals two world series wins, but nao... Mathenaging...

02:49:15 BingoBoingo: thestringpuller: Kimbrel is probably Sirian.

02:49:40 asciilifeform: brain just won't digest.

02:50:21 asciilifeform: i had the rules of, e.g., baseball, explained to me - on more than one occasion - and promptly forgot the next day.

02:50:34 decimation: asciilifeform: yeah I'm that way with handegg and soccer

02:50:40 thestringpuller: Haha. BingoBoingo we should take asciilifeform to a baseball game.

02:50:44 BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: I'd suggest playing the part of a Nationals or Baltimore Orioles fan next year, but given the proximity to District 1, dunno how you feel about anal probing

02:50:47 thestringpuller: Get him nice and drunk while heckling the pictures.

02:51:08 decimation: I understand the general concept, but there are many subtle rules and concepts

02:51:15 asciilifeform: that's the catch really

02:51:41 asciilifeform: a great many cultural in-jokes and tidbits that seem obvious to a 'native' but utterly opaque to others.

02:52:00 BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: By refering to Kimbrel as Sirian I mean as in from the Wasp, bowlegged with inhuman movements. Only way to describe the fucker.

02:52:09 asciilifeform: this plus a chronic lack of my being able to muster giving a rat's arse

02:52:17 asciilifeform: yes i get that part - the only thing

02:52:26 asciilifeform: i meant, the game in general.

02:52:34 asciilifeform: and american football.

02:52:53 BingoBoingo: Ah, well most 'Murican don't really get Baseball anymore unless their spanish is good.

02:53:30 BingoBoingo: American football is simpler though. DOn't break your spine before you sign an NFL contract is basically all of handegg

02:56:54 decimation: BingoBoingo: except for all the subtle rules about when/where tackling is legal

03:00:04 decimation: and got a note from stalin, etc

03:04:35 decimation: I'm not sure how any c-machine can really be 'formally verified'

03:04:44 decimation: which is eal7

03:04:57 asciilifeform: decimation: the whole concept of 'formally verified' is a scam.

03:05:02 asciilifeform: in any and all cases.

03:05:11 decimation: As I understand, the 'common criteria' eal levels are going away, in favor of even less objective scam-criteria

03:05:12 asciilifeform: regardless of what kind of machine, and in what galaxy.

03:05:22 decimation: so it is easier for notes from stalin to be issued

03:05:27 asciilifeform: a physical machine is not a theorem.

03:06:07 decimation: for instance, if your logic was built with 74xx, how can you 'guarantee' fail-safe under all conditions?

03:06:11 decimation: you can't

03:06:16 asciilifeform: the notes will remain extremely easy for some, entirely impossible for others - to get.

03:06:19 decimation: who the hell knows what molten silicon will do

03:06:23 asciilifeform: just as intended.

03:06:58 decimation: yeah for instance if the chinese submitted an entry, no matter how open or impressive, it would never be adopted

03:06:58 asciilifeform: no need for the 74xx to melt - enough to 'get lucky' and reach a metastable state in one or more switching elements

03:07:01 asciilifeform: all bets are off then.

03:07:09 decimation: yep

03:08:06 asciilifeform: one of the sad prices we paid when switched to digital computers is the inevitable forgetting that we are playing with physical machines, and not mathematical platonic forms.

03:08:15 BingoBoingo: decimation: Well, where does Vax still reign???

03:37:25 undata: it disappears?

03:40:25 decimation: who's control? I have no doubt that off-continent enemies will be taken seriously, but who's orders are they going to follow? Texas?

03:40:46 undata: the military would still have a chain of command absent civilian authority

03:41:40 undata: I don't think the head-body metaphor applies here

03:41:52 undata: more like giant slave and ankle-chain

03:42:22 decimation: 1.) "chain of command" orders military to 'crush' a city 2.) half the troops go awol, the other half are murdered by partisans 3.) "chain of command" no longer in command

03:42:48 undata: the US military is immensely capable of holding cities

03:42:52 undata: "partisans" have no chance

03:42:56 thestringpuller: decimation: is right tho

03:43:56 undata: but I highly doubt any of you are going to like what follows if it falls

03:44:45 thestringpuller: definitely but without a function chain of command the army is going to fragment into multiple "militias" in a serious disaster

03:45:26 thestringpuller: we like to think so, but who is really pulling the strings?

03:45:38 undata: I'll listen to the other view; go ahead

03:46:37 BingoBoingo: undata: It's almost like you've been following none of our hobby projects we joke about.

03:47:57 undata: look, if you're going to present it as a given that the most effectively oppressive military complex on earth is about to disappear, you're going to have to justify that.

03:49:17 decimation: undata: think of it from the point of view of the lowly private. You are at Fort Hood, and wash dc is gone. Your commander has told you that the 'chain of command' has ordered you to 'take Dallas'.

03:49:48 decimation: there's no air support, because comms are down. The 'locals' mostly think that the state should decide how things are run, not some ex-bureaucrats.

03:50:11 decimation: things get ugly. a few bombs go off. You are ordered out of your apc into the city.

03:50:30 decimation: your friend is shot in the head, he calls for help, but the locals have already taken over the airport, no helicopters anywhere

03:50:35 decimation: what you gonna do?

03:51:01 undata: I think American's are cowardly enough that Dallas won't have to be taken.

03:51:06 undata: *Americans

03:51:16 BingoBoingo: undata: I'm just suggesting datacenter that can't be disconnected from a safe distance...

03:51:49 undata: if things start falling apart, they're going to beg for the first strong voice they hear to save them.

03:51:59 undata: and I think the military industrial complex will provide that voice for them

03:52:28 undata: when the jackboot ends up on the corner he'll have been welcomed by >50%

03:52:49 BingoBoingo: undata: But what if the Sirians offer that strong voice first!

04:35:14 asciilifeform: alter string - elementary

04:35:30 asciilifeform: ask nodes their strings - also elementary

04:35:39 *: asciilifeform can't fathom what people argued about

04:37:17 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform: one can fudge the version string in the proggy, yes, but if you're on the network, folks can presumably connect to your node and test behaviours <<< miner doesn't have to rely

04:37:24 mircea_popescu: and because of ddos, plenty of time miner doesn't rely.

04:37:32 asciilifeform: not replying - also information.

04:37:42 mircea_popescu: after a fashion.

04:37:51 decimation: subtle client strings, etc?

04:37:53 asciilifeform: if never replies, is it really a node ?

04:38:01 mircea_popescu: could be.

04:38:02 asciilifeform: in what way, then?

04:38:08 mircea_popescu: nodes can implement their own private ip allows.

04:38:20 mircea_popescu: if the right person asks, they answer.

04:38:23 asciilifeform: aha

04:38:28 kakobrekla: <mircea_popescu> asciilifeform: the non-classical version strings are interesting << the first time i said ppl alter their strings ppl hgere were "oh, mp is just making shit up to win an internet argument" < i can see how someone running v0.9 would set the string to 'ducky duck' but not v0.1.

04:38:45 asciilifeform: then arguably their external 'face' is the fellow in their private net who -will- talk to strangers.

04:38:47 mircea_popescu: kakobrekla now we're discussing psychology.

04:42:28 undata: asciilifeform: the hidden format being the git db?

04:42:31 undata: it's relatively simple

04:42:37 asciilifeform: who the hell cares if it's simple

04:42:41 asciilifeform: will you read it? in person?

04:42:45 undata: yeah

04:42:49 undata: I've done extensive work with it

04:42:49 asciilifeform: or let 'git' do its thing

04:42:53 asciilifeform: every time?

04:42:55 undata: it's just a key-value store of hashes

04:42:57 asciilifeform: why use 'git' then

04:43:01 asciilifeform: if you won't let it chug

04:43:33 mircea_popescu: i don't think you two are discussing the same discussion.

04:44:02 asciilifeform: ^

04:44:06 undata: asciilifeform: you're saying "what if git tainted my commit"?

04:44:10 undata: that's easily discovered

04:44:13 asciilifeform: no.

04:44:19 asciilifeform: that's not it at all

04:44:21 undata: then I'm off base; what were you saying?

04:44:54 asciilifeform: that the entirety of everything submitted by a contributor must be signed, every time, with his gpg key, and this fact be visible to the naked eye at all times

04:45:12 asciilifeform: naked eye means - no tools other than apparatus capable of displaying ascii text - plus one which can verify signature.

04:45:25 undata: I don't see why that's a requirement, but ok

04:45:33 ben_vulpes: base plus patchlist?

04:45:37 undata: ascii isn't the only format that's "right there for your eyes"

04:45:46 asciilifeform: pray tell what else

04:46:16 undata: I could show you every bit in my git db easily

04:46:23 asciilifeform: can i 'cat' it to my line printer?

04:46:26 asciilifeform: unchanged?

04:46:27 mircea_popescu: well ok, it could also be sung, or whatver. anyway, the central idea here is the signing.

04:46:32 undata: these are bizarre requirements

04:46:35 asciilifeform: no.

04:46:37 undata: you could sign via git hooks

04:46:46 mircea_popescu: undata you could sign via git hooks

04:46:53 mircea_popescu: similarly, you could sign via a website that has your pubkeys

04:46:54 mircea_popescu: would you ?

04:47:03 asciilifeform: i don't actually care if he signs via hook to his toilet flush lever

04:47:07 ben_vulpes: name of the game being dependency minimization.

04:47:10 asciilifeform: but i - won't.

04:47:12 decimation: the important part isn't the signature, it's the code

04:47:18 mircea_popescu: wait what ?

04:47:21 asciilifeform: !

04:47:24 mircea_popescu: without signature, there's no code.

04:47:31 mircea_popescu: just a collection of shit someone crapped out.

04:47:31 undata: ben_vulpes: sure, that's a fine value, but every time someone tries to reinvent VCS, they either produce something terrible or git

04:47:35 decimation: of course you validate the signature

04:47:45 ben_vulpes: undata: git can be used for development

04:47:52 ben_vulpes: that's not a problem

04:48:08 asciilifeform: use git for private dildonic pleasure. or for playing with friends. i do.

04:48:08 ben_vulpes: but for releases, history of changes to bitcoin x

04:48:14 mircea_popescu: undata that's kinda why this is not the same discussion. you're thinking of the scratchpad. they're talking the exhibition.

04:49:01 undata: that makes more sense. In that case yes, I could see a very simple tool for auditing, signing, then releasing

04:49:13 mircea_popescu: right.

04:49:26 mircea_popescu: fuck, people use email to this day to exchange code.

04:49:35 decimation: I think people are complaining more aboug github than git

04:49:36 asciilifeform: i was hoping to rationally convince people that the totality of the project ought to be the mailing list, the totality of the mailing list ought to consist of gpg-signed ascii text, and that this includes patch sets - which, collectively, add up to the product.

04:49:40 mircea_popescu: can you intercept x's email for y, change subtly, release ? sure.

04:49:45 mircea_popescu: "nobody could be bothered to do that"

04:49:45 undata: mircea_popescu: I use the same for code review, even if it's a matter of emailing myself

04:49:46 mircea_popescu: sure.

04:50:01 mircea_popescu: until it becames a case of "we will hang whoever made this one byte error in bash"

04:50:03 decimation: asciilifeform: isn't the linux kernel still done this way?

04:50:07 mircea_popescu: then suddenly people discover that... wait... ?!!?!?!

04:50:16 asciilifeform: linus uses some turdolator or other

04:50:23 mircea_popescu: nah its email

04:50:30 asciilifeform: 'bitkeeper' ?

04:50:33 *: asciilifeform behind the times

04:50:42 decimation: nah he wrote git to ditch bitkeeper

04:50:46 asciilifeform: aha.

04:50:53 decimation: but I know they discuss important patches on the kernel list

04:50:53 asciilifeform: well there's the answer.

04:50:56 asciilifeform: not plain text.

04:51:08 undata: you can extract a nice looking patch from git, and even email it from there

04:51:18 asciilifeform: and do all the linux contributors sign? i do not recall this being required

04:51:26 mircea_popescu: not rly.

04:51:26 decimation: Good question

04:51:34 asciilifeform: can extract != must exist canonically in that form

04:51:50 undata: asciilifeform: I'm saying it can provide the input to your envisioned system

04:51:57 undata: even automatically... via a hook.

04:52:07 asciilifeform: who even cares how each of us craps out his input

04:52:09 undata: anyhow, horse is starting to stink

04:52:12 asciilifeform: question is re: the canonical form.

04:52:19 asciilifeform: no, this horse is alive and well.

04:53:09 *: asciilifeform realizes that he is not very good at curing people of addiction to what feels to them as 'modernity'

04:53:12 decimation: asciilifeform: the bigger question is: who is the 'registrar' of the 'official version' - or does that merely exist in the private collection of each person's note?

04:53:17 undata: asciilifeform: explain; I'll listen.

04:53:47 asciilifeform: official version, if you like, is one (if any) that we (magic-29?) all agree to sign under.

04:53:47 ben_vulpes: <undata> anyhow, horse is starting to stink << what is this a reference to?

04:53:56 undata: ben_vulpes: dead horse, beaten

04:54:03 ben_vulpes: m ah

04:54:35 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform nah, "official version" is redefined from * this (static) to whatever one has most wot trust towards.

04:54:48 asciilifeform: in practice, the only possible result

04:54:59 mircea_popescu: so if version x is signed by people i know and version y is signed by people i don't know, x is official and fu.

04:55:01 decimation: right, it's in the 'eye of the beholder'

04:55:06 mircea_popescu: exactly.

04:55:14 asciilifeform: if 10 sign one, but never other, and 19 (plus ninjasp4mz0r) sign the remaining - clearly schism.

04:55:15 undata: mircea_popescu: interesting, a fork could emerge due to a breakdown of trust

04:55:16 mircea_popescu: no such thing as "official" "because we say so". who;'s we.

04:55:22 undata: that fits the social happenings well

04:55:29 mircea_popescu: undata more properly said : every breakdown of trust is a fork

04:55:30 asciilifeform: 'we's are illusory

04:55:44 mircea_popescu: rather than papering over breakdowns of trust with "foundations" and "chief scientistdom"

04:56:06 mircea_popescu: and this puts huge pressure on trusted nodes not to break the fucking trust

04:56:06 decimation: undata: no one here really minds having a different opinion than 99.999% of humanity

04:56:20 mircea_popescu: which is essential, because our enemies are putting a lot of pressure on them to break it

04:56:28 undata: my main thrust is that the thing will have to be structured in some way (a db)

04:56:29 mircea_popescu: and you can't just expect "conscience" to resist indefinitely.

04:56:30 undata: doesn't have to be git

04:56:40 ben_vulpes: no db necessary

04:56:41 asciilifeform: at any rate, the fact that no one could really directly profit (imho) from this escapade - other than devils, were they to succeed - should keep things interesting

04:56:42 ben_vulpes: or rather

04:56:43 mircea_popescu: conscience is fluid. look at Luke-Jr's conscience : he lied about bfl delivering. look at gavin, etc.

04:56:57 mircea_popescu: whenever people's conscience is the only protection, the third reich is about to emerge.

04:57:12 decimation: asciilifeform: right, I envision it more as the collected correspondence of gentlemen scholars, rather than a profitable venture

04:57:13 ben_vulpes: undata: staaaahp

04:57:40 mircea_popescu: decimation yes. but actual gentlemen, rather than presumed gentlemen.

04:57:46 mircea_popescu: ie, people with titles.

04:57:48 undata: ben_vulpes: piles of ascii no, never, please no

04:57:48 asciilifeform: collected correspondence of gentlemen <<<<<

04:58:25 asciilifeform: undata will feel better if we 'gzip' them?

04:58:29 asciilifeform: then no longer piles of ascii.

04:58:49 decimation: folks are welcome to publish, index as they see fit

04:58:56 undata: I yield the balance of my time, haha

04:59:04 mircea_popescu: lol

04:59:18 mircea_popescu: i dunno what the hatred of ascii is from anyway.

04:59:40 asciilifeform: comes from, as i understand, 'xml' and other pseudo-humanreadable abominations

04:59:53 mircea_popescu: more like utf-8 i thought

04:59:57 undata: no, git is a distributed database

05:00:00 undata: not merely a format

05:00:30 *: asciilifeform is not ignorant of 'git' mechanics, uses it (sadly) every day

05:00:59 asciilifeform: as in, 7 days a week.

05:01:19 cazalla: mircea_popescu, where the facebook page and mockups for that?!?

05:01:30 mircea_popescu: lol

05:01:45 cazalla: maybe they meant to raise 50k facebook likes instead

05:01:53 ben_vulpes: i think then this discussion is settled.

05:01:57 ben_vulpes: there will be a base.

05:01:57 mircea_popescu: lol

05:02:08 ben_vulpes: signed patches will released.

05:03:08 ben_vulpes: <asciilifeform> decimation: bitcoind begs to be split into at least 3 programs << of which only 1 is necessary ! << for the record, what are the three and which the one?

05:03:23 asciilifeform: which one - the one that actually 'bitcoin'ates

05:03:45 asciilifeform: the one which menstruates guilade - flush it

05:04:06 ben_vulpes: what is the bitcoinating? the part that attaches to the network, downloads and verifies the blockchain?

05:04:10 asciilifeform: the unspeakable cthonian horror that remains - why even think of it

05:04:21 mod6: asciilifeform: i like the idea of a cypherpunk-esq mailing list to propagate patches from a common release.

05:04:34 asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: the part that actually enables the things we like to do with the damn thing

05:04:40 asciilifeform: bitcoinate.

05:04:44 mod6: this hasn't been done for some time, and probably needs to come back.

05:04:55 asciilifeform: it is the only way.

05:05:16 *: mod6 gets ready to fire up mutt!

05:05:42 decimation: asciilifeform: wouldn't it be a good idea for the privkey need not live in the same memory space as the rest of the code, for instance

05:06:07 ben_vulpes: decimation: a fantastic idea.

05:06:21 ben_vulpes: wallets should be built atop bitcoind or equivalent.

05:06:33 asciilifeform: decimation: in my (now very old) plan for rewrite, there were to be two machines

05:06:41 asciilifeform: connected with serial cable

05:06:42 decimation: aye

05:06:51 decimation: perhaps with a protocol validator in the middle

05:06:55 asciilifeform: but it - is not the topic

05:07:05 asciilifeform: topic was janitorial upkeep of classic bitcoind

05:07:32 mircea_popescu: <asciilifeform> connected with serial cable << this from reading up on old mpex material ?

05:07:42 asciilifeform: wait this was in there?

05:07:53 mircea_popescu: long long ago, in a galaxy far far away

05:08:00 mod6: COIN WARZ

05:08:02 mircea_popescu: back when there weren't any enemies listening in on our lists

05:08:08 mircea_popescu: mpex was almost discussed

05:08:13 asciilifeform: it's an obvious idea, srsly

05:08:16 asciilifeform: or just to me

05:08:17 mircea_popescu: it is yes

05:08:44 asciilifeform: logic is one for all of us.

05:08:46 asciilifeform: like victory.

05:10:08 *: asciilifeform wonders if his entire life is alive somewhere in old mpex material.

05:10:30 mircea_popescu: the disadvantage of productivity is that it's 5am and the log is closing in on 1k lines. and yest it was nearly 3k. and jesus god it's a lot harder to go through when it's not mostly my own lines! i had no idea!

05:10:50 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform nah, im sure that's not the case, i never cut solid copper anythings.

05:10:58 asciilifeform: lol

05:10:59 ben_vulpes: mircea_popescu: welcome to my hell.

05:11:23 mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes cause normally i'm like, oh, logs, fancy that. but past few days it's been... omfg help me.

05:11:25 asciilifeform: protocol validator in the middle << people don't seem to get this. 'secure' is not a gigantic mechanized orchestra of quis custodiet ipsos custodes.

05:11:32 mircea_popescu: ^

05:11:38 asciilifeform: it is 'fits in head.' and a few other things.

05:11:57 mircea_popescu: mechanized orchestra is a particularly good metaphore. because it never existed.

05:12:00 mircea_popescu: WHY did it never exist ?

05:12:09 asciilifeform: i asked my father as a boy

05:12:14 decimation: well, quite simply because the failure rate would be too high

05:12:14 asciilifeform: 'why no compressor for the jazz band?'

05:12:24 mircea_popescu: decimation eeexactly.

05:12:27 mircea_popescu: !up deadalus

05:12:30 asciilifeform: 'those trombones - how are they any different from pneumatic hammers!?!?'

05:12:48 asciilifeform: 'why must these poor musicians blow, strain their chests!'

05:12:58 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform did he give you a sex answer ?

05:13:13 decimation: dijkstra would have been a fan of 'fits in head'

05:13:23 ben_vulpes: cazalla: i was derping with a colleague about btc payment processing recently. the topic: how to ensure the payment processor (he who tells the taco-delivery mechanism to release tacos) gets paid?

05:13:28 asciilifeform: dijkstra actually believed in proofs

05:13:39 ben_vulpes: our solution: one of the few actual uses for M/N signatures.

05:13:40 asciilifeform: he lived in the last days of an age of proofs

05:13:47 decimation: yeah but he also pretty much admits they are unworkable practically

05:13:47 mircea_popescu: i'm kinda reminded of the jews on toilet joke. "is this work ?"

05:14:14 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: actually yes

05:14:16 ben_vulpes: funds sent to M/N address, both merchant and payment solution provider must agree upon processor fee and merchant share to disburse funds to each.

05:14:24 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform can't blame him. only way out of that one.

05:14:29 ben_vulpes: mind you, this is a pure-btc play.

05:14:36 mircea_popescu: otherwise it goes on forever, like the us puritan thought pattern.

05:14:54 mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes seems dubious to me.

05:15:05 mircea_popescu: you familiar with the three man committee to split a buck ?

05:15:54 kakobrekla: there were to be two machines connected with serial cable < heh i have such setup with a buffer on the cable

05:15:58 mircea_popescu: you go to stan : hey listen, he's giving you nothing. take this 5 cents sign over to me.

05:16:04 mircea_popescu: basically it has no stable solution.

05:16:51 BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Problem with brass instruments is not strain on chest, but strain on face.

05:16:54 ben_vulpes: m=n

05:17:02 mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes no, n = 2 if there's no third.

05:17:14 mircea_popescu: shit. n = 1 is what i mean.

05:17:21 ben_vulpes: pardon?

05:17:53 asciilifeform: that film - is precisely about that orchestra.

05:17:57 mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes exactly.

05:18:16 ben_vulpes: okay, so my derpitude re: m/n aside, the thing has a stable solutino.

05:18:22 mircea_popescu: nop.

05:18:27 ben_vulpes: go on

05:18:30 ben_vulpes: please

05:18:50 mircea_popescu: well i dunno what's missing ;/

05:22:46 ben_vulpes: insurance policy?

05:23:04 decimation: all this does seem to break down to something like "we want a computer to enforce a human language contract" which ain't gonna happen

05:23:09 mircea_popescu: dude. srsly ?

05:23:31 mircea_popescu: "insurance policy" ? "here's a car that doesn't work, and just to make sure, we welded to it a boat that also doesn't work" ? is this a way to live?

05:23:41 mircea_popescu: do something that works.

05:23:43 ben_vulpes: that's too big a leap for my tiny brain

05:24:39 mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes what's your favourite meal ?

05:42:11 asciilifeform: depends on system.

05:42:26 asciilifeform: but given example wasn't so bad, 'molten slag' is also a metastable state.

05:50:03 mircea_popescu: undata: a highly armed, extremely disciplined military doesn't just vanish because the congressmen stop coming to work << obviously not. it just starts working for me instead ?

05:50:05 asciilifeform: the digital computer is a beautiful dream. good and well, but you can't dream the dream without some 'meat' to dream it with.

05:50:57 decimation: the thing is, the us military only looks impressive because it has 'support'

05:51:08 decimation: in the same sense that the wasp guy did

05:51:23 decimation: without that support, and with dwindling oil supplies, what you gonna do?

05:51:36 mircea_popescu: undata: BingoBoingo: I'll read this but to continue, the Russians sought Putin's strong voice after their collapse. << not after, honey. a decade after. that decade is important.

05:52:21 mircea_popescu: decimation generally high efficiency is obtained at the cost of high fragility. the jit system is a fine exampel of the principle.

05:52:41 decimation: aye

05:52:54 mircea_popescu: essentially to get "really good" at one thing you define a narrow thing to be good at.

05:53:14 mircea_popescu: then you end up engaged in the middle east trying to do another thing,

05:53:32 mircea_popescu: and everyone's pointing and laughing at your apparent inability, notwithstanding immense expenditure, not leat of all of your own god damned effort.

05:54:02 decimation: right, randomly destroy the support for the existing 'ability' and you see rapid nonlinear fragmentation

05:54:10 decimation: not graceful linear degradation

05:54:15 BingoBoingo: Predicted used for Deedbot: 1. Declarations of giving a fuck 2. Claiming swaths of US land 3. #b-a related corp financial statements

05:54:22 mircea_popescu: so yeah, if washington goes or stays is irrelevant, but if the obnoxious sissy faggots currently in the general staff are all raped and hanged the army will suddenly see its mission redefined much widerly

05:54:31 mircea_popescu: and in that redefinition it will signifcantly increase in strength.

05:54:44 decimation: without a single tank being moved

05:54:47 mircea_popescu: quite.

05:54:55 mircea_popescu: in fact, it wil happen not merely in spite of gas shortages

05:54:59 mircea_popescu: but because of gas shortages.

05:55:28 mircea_popescu: yugoslav army was not 1/6 as effectual as the same god damned units, except now commanded by the war criminals.

05:55:38 asciilifeform: folks who are not 'armchair general' scholars of nato idiocy may be surprised to learn the extent to which the entire edifice was built - still is built - to 'blow its wad' against ussr in no more than a 3 week period.

05:55:42 undata: mircea_popescu: I think we agree then.

05:55:43 asciilifeform: and then die

05:55:48 asciilifeform: of hunger, thirst

05:55:50 asciilifeform: boredom.

05:55:53 mircea_popescu: undata good to hear.

05:55:53 undata: I was arguing that "those piles of weapons" commanded by whomever will remain

05:56:12 undata: and likely operate without the freedom-loving layer of bullshit

05:56:25 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform well yes, pretty much every single gi item has fulda fucking stamped on it.

05:56:30 mircea_popescu: invisible, yet present.

05:56:34 asciilifeform: operate - to guard col. ripper's shiny new harem and wineyard - yes

05:56:38 asciilifeform: to 'take dallas' - why?

05:56:53 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform if memory is any guide, it will be more to settle wot disputes than anything.

05:56:58 BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Cousin spent 2005 - 2009 as an active duty Marine. Spent two years on a boat in blue water, "just in case"

05:57:05 decimation: my point is simply that there's no way the us military would be effective against its own people, it would fracture

05:57:09 mircea_popescu: harem does not need guarding, not in that context. btches know enough not to get messy at that juncture.

05:57:23 asciilifeform: harem as in physical structure

05:57:35 mircea_popescu: decimation doubt it. croatian military didn't "fracture". nor did serbian.

05:57:55 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform it seriouslt doesn't need so much defense. would be smartasses are well shy

05:58:23 asciilifeform: many places will get things they don't strictly need.

05:58:32 asciilifeform: or think they need

05:58:34 mircea_popescu: sure. so they do today. business as usual.

05:59:00 mircea_popescu: no, i tell you, it'll be "colonel X of Y promised major Z of K delivery of m then reneged. who the fuck does he think he is ? charge!"

05:59:10 mircea_popescu: because if you don't charge might as well shave, oil up and go to the harem.

05:59:21 asciilifeform: basic point - what keeps col. x from turning his division on the white house, for shits & giggles?

05:59:25 assbot: Last 4 lines bashed and pending review. ( http://dpaste.com/396AN7G.txt )

05:59:25 BingoBoingo: !b 4

05:59:46 BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: In Napoleon's army mustaches

06:00:05 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform the fact that his division is valuable and the wh is meaningless.

06:00:15 mircea_popescu: what should have kept hitler from digging the desert looking for the holy grail ?

06:00:16 mircea_popescu: sanity.

06:00:17 ben_vulpes: <mircea_popescu> kakobrekla no, just sayin', your guess is as good as sexyginger's << boss you got a funny memory

06:00:28 asciilifeform: may well have perverse meaning to col. x

06:00:29 mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes my memory's my best part!

06:00:38 asciilifeform: herr schicklegruber had a nonzero grail budget

06:00:42 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform exactly. perversity and sanity are unsisters.

06:00:43 decimation: right, but what does general y have to say about what col x. does?

06:00:44 asciilifeform: by some accounts

06:01:12 BingoBoingo: decimation: Various general were replaced by cigarette smoking men in suits

06:01:27 asciilifeform: today - col. x won't blow away wh because he has an imaginary retirement with hunting dogs and cocksuckresses living in the spiderwebby recesses of his balding skull.

06:01:36 mircea_popescu: ha! hahahah get out.

06:01:37 asciilifeform: tomorrow - the spiderwebs clear away. no dogs

06:01:41 asciilifeform: no retirement.

06:01:44 decimation: my point is that col. x is much more likely to appoint himself 'mayor of dallas' and send a polite 'fuck you' to the remaining chain of command

06:01:46 mircea_popescu: find me any army colonel that gets... cocksuckressES. plural ? gtfo.

06:01:52 asciilifeform: in his mind.

06:01:53 mircea_popescu: what was that caricature, army wife ?

06:02:10 mircea_popescu: dependosaurus ?

06:02:51 ben_vulpes: why do dependopotamuses have sex in the water?

06:02:57 asciilifeform: dependopotamus is a real creature which infests privates, not colonels.

06:02:59 asciilifeform: typically.

06:03:05 mircea_popescu: generally the hussies flock to the businessmen rather than the warlords. at least from what i've directly observed.

06:03:19 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i never heard of a colonel that wasn't ever a private.

06:03:31 decimation: mircea_popescu: this is regularlly the case in us mil

06:03:41 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: himmler?

06:03:43 decimation: colonels are appointed directly from university

06:03:51 ben_vulpes: well gents you have a good one

06:03:51 mircea_popescu: o.O ?!

06:03:53 decimation: it's rare one finds an officer who was first enlished

06:04:00 mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes we're writing for when you get up!

06:04:03 decimation: it happens, but not common

06:04:03 BingoBoingo: Well in Usia Colonels usually start as Lou-Tenants

06:04:11 ben_vulpes: mircea_popescu: ah go fuck yourselves

06:04:16 mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo 2nd lt is private neh ?

06:04:21 ben_vulpes: how am i supposed to read all these lines i didn't write?!

06:04:33 decimation: 2nd lt is the eqiv. of 'officer private'

06:04:34 mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes with attention! these are actually the good ones!

06:04:34 BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: No, its commisioned

06:04:39 asciilifeform: in usa, 'private' is rank of the cannon fodder man, fresh off the street

06:04:54 *: mircea_popescu thinks he pushed his point far enough, rests.

06:04:55 BingoBoingo: 2nd Lt often is platoon leader

06:05:15 decimation: with no actual military experience other than officer boot camp

06:05:47 BingoBoingo: I hear 2nd Lt's exist simply to make NCO's lifes miserable

06:06:03 mircea_popescu: undata: some guy comes along and pledges to slap our oligarchs around; after a bit economic collapse they'd eat that shit up <<< this is some massively funny shit.

06:06:08 asciilifeform: decimation: i once learned, to great surprise, that as late as '70s i'd quality for an instant lieutenant if joined american army - all you needed was an ordinary uni degree (4 yrs.)

06:06:11 mircea_popescu: you actually think this is what putin did ?! or russian prole thought he did ?!

06:06:35 undata: mircea_popescu: correct me. I'd like to know.

06:06:36 asciilifeform: decimation: this, i think, was repealed.

06:06:37 decimation: asciilifeform: of course, they would pay you a bonus which you are generally required to spend on a ford mustang

06:06:45 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i bet you the 20 year sergeants are pretty fucking happy with that o.O

06:06:50 asciilifeform: haha

06:06:53 asciilifeform: very 'happy.'

06:06:58 decimation: asciilifeform: no they still make you go through 'officer canidate school' which is boot camp lite

06:07:07 mircea_popescu: undata well, it's a lengthy matter, hard to fit in one line or w/e. but let me find you this thing about stalin.

06:07:16 asciilifeform: in those days, it was a kind of compressed 'crash course.'

06:07:16 mircea_popescu: !s stalin from:asciilifeform

06:07:54 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform wher's the one where you discuss people driving a truck with the man's pic ? because he makes order ?

06:07:56 asciilifeform: decimation: 'warrant officer'

06:08:06 asciilifeform: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=15-06-2014#719963

06:08:06 assbot: Logged on 15-06-2014 17:24:22; asciilifeform: phun phact. russian truck drivers had portraits of stalin in their windshields (facing out.) possibly even now.

06:08:18 decimation: no no warrant officer is generally a rank reserved only for highly qualified enlisted men

06:08:22 mircea_popescu: undata ^ there you go. he didn't say anything about oligarchs. he just promised order.

06:08:35 mircea_popescu: this is a subtle concept. like the platonic notion of cosmos, an ordered universe.

06:08:41 decimation: although I think there were various times when it applied to technical experts

06:08:50 mircea_popescu: the main thing is that this de facto promises that every phenomenon carries meaning.

06:09:00 undata: mircea_popescu: ah, not revenge, just a return to function?

06:09:00 mircea_popescu: because unmeaning phenomena are very bothersome to simple folk.

06:09:04 mircea_popescu: uyp

06:09:14 undata: this goes back to the conversation recently about the concerns of a soldier at war

06:09:18 mircea_popescu: yup.

06:10:06 decimation: right, and the question is: is col x. with his own local agenda going to provide meaning or is gen y. in far away disaster-land?

06:10:17 mircea_popescu: maybe. distance dampens meaning.

06:10:39 decimation: without reliable air transport and crumbling land-transport, america is a big place

06:11:01 mircea_popescu: a lot to signify, and rapidly deteriorating common language. not in the sense of english,

06:11:24 mircea_popescu: but in the sense of, this feat where random high functrioning idiots like the kent guy quoted earier suddenly buy the common delusion of "global warming" becomes impossible.

06:12:16 decimation: right, I envison something like revolutionary france where the king is derping around paris and all of the peasants suddenly decide not to pay their taxes or heed property rights

06:12:44 asciilifeform: 'stalin did not recede into the past - he dissolved into the future!' (de gaulle ?)

06:12:49 mircea_popescu: ^

06:13:15 mircea_popescu: the fundamental function of the rabi (which is what stalin was, practically, at the massive outskirts) is not going away.

06:13:25 mircea_popescu: and it does really not matter what sort of an ass the rabi is privately.

06:13:28 mircea_popescu: !up eightyeight

06:14:18 mircea_popescu: but the fact that the average person is not fascinated by congressional proceedings, let alone comprehend them at all, is a serious warning sign.

06:14:38 mircea_popescu: if you recall, back when the us functioned people went to see wtf jefferson said as their evening's entertainment

06:14:51 asciilifeform: well, people. not 'people.'

06:15:03 mircea_popescu: how is this then to be leadership ? because tradition-tradition ? mkay. only goes so far.

06:15:05 asciilifeform: homo redditicus was not yet born in his homunculus factory.

06:15:13 undata: "the dissolution of shared meaning" << this is a wonderful description of what's at work here

06:15:19 mircea_popescu: once the young sluts radicalise it's the end. which is why the teenaged runaway chgicks are so important.

06:15:28 BingoBoingo: Allegedly policical speech makes the evening newscast with alleged attribution

06:15:33 asciilifeform: it was why i linked them.

06:15:34 undata: what's the next step? doesn't someone come along and become that meaning for them?

06:15:35 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform reddit is an effect not a cause.

06:15:40 undata: and don't they long for it?

06:15:45 undata: I recall the "need to belong" also from the other day

06:15:46 asciilifeform: reddit is effect, yes

06:15:47 mircea_popescu: undata only if such can exist. i very much doubt it can.

06:15:53 BingoBoingo: !up justusranvier

06:15:59 asciilifeform: just like the drool of a drooling retard is an effect

06:16:05 asciilifeform: but still synonymous with retardation

06:16:12 mircea_popescu: granted.

06:16:25 decimation: I think such men can exist for localities

06:16:55 mircea_popescu: basically, the great federal project failed, the national project never succeeded, what's left is a sort of us of africa.

06:17:06 decimation: but right now the federal government means nothing but taxation and disorder to the majority of the populace

06:17:09 mircea_popescu: worst failed state in the history of european adventure, the us.

06:17:53 undata: there is a wide swath of the south that could easily start eating each other should the walmarts run dry

06:17:55 BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: The more I read on Argentina, the more it seems like what the US said it was going to be

06:18:13 decimation: agreed. and private Y. is going to be mulling these things over when he and his friends are getting killed over some vague pro-climate change agenda or whatever

06:18:43 mircea_popescu: undata why the south preferentially ?

06:18:51 Adlai: +BingoBoingo | I hear 2nd Lt's exist simply to make NCO's lifes miserable // true in the idf too

06:18:52 mircea_popescu: my bet is on chicago cannibalism = first cannibalism.

06:19:00 asciilifeform: also depends on how quickly us mil can retool for formally organized plunder

06:19:01 Adlai: why not detroit? or mogadishu?

06:19:18 mircea_popescu: Adlai detroit is stable as is. in fact if it does collapse, detroit will be the new capital.

06:19:27 mircea_popescu: they have the druglords to support order.

06:19:30 BingoBoingo: Adlai: Detroit now has some farms within city limits too

06:19:31 undata: mircea_popescu: chicago gangs could at least hope to establish some kind of crude order

06:19:34 undata: yeah

06:19:39 decimation: asciilifeform: indeed. there are powerful incentives for local col. x to 'defect' and become the warlord of kansas or whatever

06:19:52 undata: there are parts of the southern US that are just... astoundingly ignorant

06:19:55 mircea_popescu: decimation which, you'll notice, is exactly how the roman empire went.

06:19:55 Adlai: well, i doubt the US would let its capitol be ruled by local cartels, but they might be a capital of an independant state

06:20:03 asciilifeform: chicago cannibalism = first cannibalism << washington cannibalism - best cannibalism...

06:20:06 mircea_popescu: undata ignorance doth not a criminal make.

06:20:07 undata: they would not be capable of any kind of cobbled-together society

06:20:08 asciilifeform: a la 'best korea'

06:20:17 undata: mircea_popescu: what about hungry ignorance?

06:20:19 mircea_popescu: i have my doubts, having been there.

06:20:21 *: Adlai still maintains that human society is cannibalistic, we just don't eat flesh directly

06:20:27 mircea_popescu: undata nah, new york and california will be the shitholes.

06:20:34 mircea_popescu: rural missisippi wprolly be quite pleasant.

06:20:43 decimation: yeah I think the south and west would survive the best

06:20:51 mircea_popescu: generally, go to the places currently "ignorant", you'll be safe there.

06:21:13 decimation: rally the wagons, fuck you to outsiders, plenty of resources, not a crushing population density

06:21:16 mircea_popescu: their alleged ignorance is merely unallignment. not being alligned with the idiocy that just failed is a bonus.

06:21:47 asciilifeform: Adlai would be pleased to read the works of soviet academician Porshnev

06:21:53 mircea_popescu: this was kinda the boon of romania. the slowest sheep in the eu flock.

06:22:04 mircea_popescu: as a result, when the flock went over a cliff... romania was still way behind.

06:22:21 Adlai: asciilifeform: any specific one?

06:22:22 undata: mircea_popescu: I see your point; my parents have a farm in rural PA. It would take about three weeks for the more dangerous (meth-addled) neighbors to be quiet.

06:22:26 asciilifeform: who argued, almost convincingly, that cannibalism shaped all of human history (e.g., fire was discovered to fight the cannibal half of humanity, who then morphed into sc4mz0rs or the like)

06:22:42 asciilifeform: Adlai: afaik, as with most soviet crackpots, no translation to english exists

06:22:56 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform shit, you read my article about how fire was used to cookl ?

06:23:09 asciilifeform: nein

06:23:26 asciilifeform: tried using fire to cook, though

06:23:28 asciilifeform: it worked.

06:23:45 assbot: Muffins si-o disputa de antropologie pe fraudsters - Un blog de Mircea Popescu.

06:23:53 Adlai: well that's a nice crackocy, but i'm talking about the fact that upscale anglophonia lives off the sweat of other societies

06:23:55 mircea_popescu: "Ca atare, in baza acestor observatii, bomba : cel mai probabil prima carne gatita a fost de om, nu de animal. A cazut vre-o proasta-n foc"

06:24:19 *: Adlai is using "societies" to refer to other classes within and without anglophonia

06:24:29 mircea_popescu: Adlai why misuse the term then.

06:25:01 asciilifeform: de om, nu de animal << ahahaha porshnev

06:25:08 decimation: Adlai: it certainly is the case that the 'upscale (blue)' class in the us takes advantage of the labor & genius of the 'smart unaligned rednecks'

06:25:23 undata: mircea_popescu: oh, and florida is in the american south.

06:25:34 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i swear never read him.

06:25:35 undata: there are highly populated areas throughout the south

06:25:40 *: asciilifeform believes

06:25:40 mircea_popescu: but... one logic, one mouth, one fie.

06:25:41 BingoBoingo: undata: But Florida man is a hero of ancient legend

06:25:57 asciilifeform: 'one mouth, one fie' a la american saying 'one shot, one kill' lol

06:26:02 mircea_popescu: >D

06:26:05 undata: BingoBoingo: hah, he will rise and rule the cock of the continent

06:26:21 asciilifeform: http://www.new-cccp.ru/warb/1261.jpg << incidentally not only american saying.

06:26:45 Adlai: the relationship is quite similar to that of an agricultural society herding cattle

06:26:50 Adlai: mircea_popescu: why misuse the term << the term is misused to shock the audience, a technique you seem to enjoy yourself...

06:26:55 mircea_popescu: vrag!!! (aka enemy)

06:27:00 asciilifeform: incidentally that phrase (in picture) doesn't translate one bit.

06:27:03 asciilifeform: just fails.

06:27:05 mircea_popescu: Adlai not quite, no.

06:27:20 asciilifeform: 'hit such that ain't there one bullet but there's one enemy.'

06:27:38 asciilifeform: [to match it]

06:27:44 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform "shoot not to the shots but to the enemies" neh ?

06:27:57 asciilifeform: looks like that, yes. but no - above.

06:27:58 mircea_popescu: as in, don't shoot to have shot, shoot to have killed.

06:28:04 Adlai: mircea_popescu: oh come on, your blog is full of metaphors that shock the average netizen encountering it for the first time

06:28:31 *: asciilifeform to bed

06:28:33 mircea_popescu: Adlai this is true. but when i redefine terms i always do it with a solid backing of thought behind it, and my redefinitions are actually cognitively stronger than the current convention.

06:28:48 mircea_popescu: these considerations are important, i can't be immitated by merely taking pictures.

06:28:48 BingoBoingo: Adlai: You only think that because you're still looking at the rabbit hole and not harvesting the coneys therin

06:28:59 Adlai: ok, so what's wrong with looking at farming individuals of your own species as a form of cannibalism?

06:29:10 mircea_popescu: Adlai this was discussed in the logs :D

06:29:49 mircea_popescu: but anyway, at issue was the misuse of "societies" to mean "groups", not of cannibalism.

06:29:50 BingoBoingo: Adlai: It isn't cannibalism if you merely plan to take them to the rendering plant for fuel and not the abbatoir for meat

06:30:08 Adlai: no, not according to the current dictionary definition of cannibalism

06:30:26 decimation: cooking someone in your stomach is different than cooking them in your car?

06:30:33 Adlai: though i'm misusing the term intentionally, my misuse is well-defined

06:30:40 mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo you're on a... slippery slope, so to speak. for most of history women were merely used to make more of them.

06:31:08 mircea_popescu: seeing how for same most of the history man was the engine, it's technically using women as fuel.

06:31:09 BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: Or merely a lubricated slope

06:32:30 BingoBoingo: Man uses homo sapiens, ethics is the discussion of acceptable uses

06:32:34 *: Adlai recalls a calculation in Collapse that egyptian pharoes had at their disposal approximately the same level of manpower as a single piece of modern construction equipment (eg bulldozer)

06:32:59 mircea_popescu: i kinda doubt this calculation.

06:37:26 assbot: 3 Signs A Woman Is A Dependopotamus | Thought Catalog

06:38:15 Adlai: which bile/

06:38:20 BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: Homo redditicus has trouble accepting it has an origin story

06:38:38 mircea_popescu: "While dimwitted, the Dependopotamus is a shrewd beast who knows that there is one surefire way to trap a man: Bear as many of his offspring as possible. Since having a baby in the military is free thanks to the dependency benefits, she?ll be in a constant state of hosting and developing new fetuses that she isn?t certain are from her husband or one of her many lovers."

06:38:47 mircea_popescu: this echoes an older argument brought by say shaw, in much blander prose.

06:39:10 mircea_popescu: sure, the female can be seen as a preditor. in that it ingests and keeps the sperm, sure.

06:39:19 undata: mircea_popescu: this is the insecurity of many men, that if they can't keep their woman, it must be the wretched whore's fault.

06:39:25 mircea_popescu: this is more of a novelty / gentleman's amusing musings, than actual you know, life philosoph.y

06:39:57 mircea_popescu: undata it's not even clear if the author wants her to stay or to go.

06:40:42 undata: he wants to be worshiped by something he hates, undeservedly

06:41:35 BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: I think you wrote on geek wanting to be gifted a woman in his closet who doesn't need for anything. Dependopotamus trope is the inverse of that.

06:41:46 mircea_popescu: seems so.

15:06:56 kakobrekla: > Initially he was said to live in Siberia, but with the Informbiro crisis and the schism between Yugoslavia and the Soviet Union his home was relocated to Mt. Triglav, Slovenia's (and also Yugoslavia's) highest peak.

15:06:58 kakobrekla: hehehe

15:08:54 Vexual: can we equare Ded Moroz to Meng Fei xinxi?

15:09:04 Vexual: *equate

15:10:00 Vexual: kakobrekla is calling upon your intelligence

15:10:42 xinxi: is Meng Fei that good?

15:10:48 Vexual: nevermnd i googles it and its snata clause

15:11:06 Vexual: yes i like him

15:11:27 Vexual: he would be good at parties, inlike santacaluse

15:11:56 xinxi: yeah, they are quite different.

15:12:12 xinxi: Meng Fei has great personality

15:13:34 Vexual: yes h eeats magic mushrooms and provides no conversation whatsoever

15:16:01 Vexual: i need a new keyboard, perhaps jurov will bring me one

15:25:24 Vexual: he said he haz 20 oz

15:25:28 xiando: yes

15:25:42 xiando: now I know he has 20 oz and all I need is a $2 hammer and his address to get it

15:25:53 xiando: so my advice is to repeat after me: "I haz no gold"

15:26:07 Vexual: well i dunno if you noticeced but were getting friendly

15:26:32 xiando: :-) sorry. I just alwasy recommend saying "I have no gold"

15:26:56 Vexual: say what you like, if that shit goes missing..

15:26:56 xinxi: xiando, my gold was bought a few years ago

16:34:35 mircea_popescu: nubbins` "i don't believe i suck because i suck, let me rephrase this five thousand different ways maybe one sticks"

16:35:09 mircea_popescu: in my experience beating slaves into submission, two types are clearly apparent. one is interested in stopping the beatings, and will change in any way necessary. the other is interested in arguing about how the beatings should stop.

16:35:17 Vexual: oh lookout tomservo qntra ops

16:35:21 TomServo: mircea_popescu: Which radio show was that in reference to?

16:35:24 mircea_popescu: type two changes into type one around the third day mark.

16:35:36 mircea_popescu: TomServo something danielpbarron was on yest, dank something

16:35:55 Vexual: you're right tommo

16:36:00 nubbins`: "I think lots of people confuse (natural concentrations of (power or wealth) that come from either being (smarter or more savvy or luckier or (starting with more (power or wealth or reputation)))) with (systems that prevent newcomers from competing with entrenched interests)."

16:37:10 mircea_popescu: "i think lots of people confuse good hierarchy with bad hierarchy" to be followed by a) i am the one to establish which is good and which is bad, b) it's okay for me to use "does it recognise me as god-king" as a criteria of whether it's good or bad, c) the fact that i can and do argue against ANY hierarchy does not invalidate my methods.

16:37:30 Vexual: you were holdring chanops on the undregisered #qntra

16:37:53 Vexual: seems you left

16:38:12 mircea_popescu: the pill against this, of course, is mp on rape, all that discussion about how the ignorant don't know what they're ignorant of and therefore can't make choices as to what to learn and how to learn it. which is why mp is so unpopular with this particular crowd of retards.

16:38:14 TomServo: Oh ahah, yeah - wasn't sure how/why I ended up with the ops either.

16:39:04 Vexual: its just irc business

16:58:23 bounce: the pill against people establishing themselves as god-kings is you establishing yourself as a god-king, while making fun of the others?

16:58:27 mircea_popescu: i hate how life is filled with double standards. If a girl fucks a bunch of guys she's a whore. if I do, i'm gay. wtf?!

16:58:53 mircea_popescu: bounce that's all a matter of perspective.

16:59:08 mircea_popescu: god-kings exist exactly in the same sense "fuck you rich" exists : in the imagination of the poor.

16:59:52 bounce: the rich are simply too busy slinging subtle and oh-so-refined insults at each other

17:00:36 mircea_popescu: lol

17:00:42 bounce: ancient nobility, of course. nouveau riche and such are party poopers because the insults go over their heads.

17:12:28 mircea_popescu: am i to satisfy a negative ?

17:12:57 mircea_popescu: fuck you rich is like "youthful healthy". only the sickly and elderly know about it.

17:13:00 asciilifeform: not as such, but at least suggest how the apparent unicorns are simply goats with horn glued on

17:13:21 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform for instance by pointing out to the street whore that IS in fact fuck you rich ?

17:13:22 mircea_popescu: lemme find her.

17:18:20 asciilifeform: aha

17:18:25 mircea_popescu: fuck you rich. right ?

17:18:28 asciilifeform: how?

17:18:54 asciilifeform: the expression (afaik, american) traditionally means - one who is rich enough to never work again, if so wishes

17:18:54 mircea_popescu: well you're asking me ? your term! define it!

17:19:05 mircea_popescu: well she doesn't seem to be working, does she.

17:19:14 asciilifeform: and, usually presumes, live like a man (not rat)

17:19:19 mircea_popescu: ahaha

17:19:25 mircea_popescu: and that isn't a matter of perspective ?

17:19:57 asciilifeform: well yes. phrase is uttered by humans, who of course have perspective - 'tall' means something else to a dwarf than to an architect

17:22:34 asciilifeform: not usually

17:22:39 asciilifeform: though i've had my doubts

17:22:44 mircea_popescu: neither does my fuck you rich bitch., what now ?

17:22:54 asciilifeform: rat, however, often owns a rathole

17:22:57 asciilifeform: does the woman?

17:23:11 asciilifeform: 'rat' may even be an upgrade for her

17:23:19 Vexual: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8bdeizHM9OU no monero

17:23:39 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform rat owns a rathole in the same sense she owns some sidewalk.

17:23:50 mircea_popescu: possession being nine tenths of the law and all that.

17:25:21 asciilifeform: 'fuck you money,' if i recall, has the following etymology. the idea that if you came into $fuckyou, you could utter 'fuck you' to the boss at the plant tomorrow, and continue to live at least as well (consumption) as presently, indefinitely

17:25:37 mircea_popescu: so she has it ?

17:25:40 asciilifeform: and most of the speakers are not street bums, and so aren't sitting on a floor one cannot fall through

17:25:50 mircea_popescu: but that's besides the point isn';t it.

17:26:30 asciilifeform: well it has a meaning - most folks aren't bums, and possibly don't even inhabit a mental space where bums exist (other than in the vaguely 'doomy' sense that death exists for them)

17:26:53 asciilifeform: to abuse mathematical parlance, bumhood is a 'degenerate case'

17:29:21 Vexual: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=agRzpnS_FGw the doom generation

17:30:03 asciilifeform: 'fuck you money' is a very real item for which folks have a very real longing - because in fact, it is simply the desire to be released from workschwitz and arbeit macht frei.

17:31:13 asciilifeform: people with even an elementary brain do understand that perhaps one in a thousand can be a rentier

17:31:40 bounce: that is the assumption anyway

17:35:54 Vexual: ascii trolls now?

17:36:46 Vexual: of coursem its late, or early

17:37:33 kakobrekla: its fuck you money only until its not.

17:37:41 Vexual: not everyone with a brain seeks residual income

17:38:27 thestringpuller: mircea_popescu is still awake?

17:39:42 asciilifeform: its fuck you money only until its not << yes, generally how fiat works

17:40:00 asciilifeform: but one could redefine 'fuck you' with an engineering margin

17:40:20 asciilifeform: such that, e.g., you can lose 90% of the principal and remain fuckyou-enabled

17:40:41 kakobrekla: you basically need 10 fuckoffs.

17:40:50 chetty: I always thought it had more to do with being willing to live without whatever to the extent you would say $fuckyou to the boss, doesn't have to be money

17:40:58 Vexual: 100 bux is prolly fuck you money if youve got skills

17:41:08 thestringpuller: http://money.cnn.com/2014/10/22/technology/mobile/apple-pay-double-charge/index.html

18:14:00 mircea_popescu: so does this mean he IS playing or merely that he will be ?

18:14:03 mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo ^

18:14:45 mircea_popescu: <asciilifeform> to abuse mathematical parlance, bumhood is a 'degenerate case' << but inasmuch as your argument rests on the "mental space" of the user, then therefore my observation IS satisfied, and indeed it's not a thing, but merely a figment of imagination.

18:15:06 mircea_popescu: note that the reality of the longing for the idol is not in question, nor does it rub off on the idol to make IT real.

18:15:32 mircea_popescu: <kakobrekla> its fuck you money only until its not. << fuck you meat!11

18:16:34 mircea_popescu: <chetty> kakobrekla, matter of how much you like the foot? or the shoe .. <<< she has a point, i've seen women cut foot for prada heels.

18:16:44 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: prisoners may have different reasons to want out of the jail, but that does not make freedom a 'figment of imagination' - there is actually a world outside of the jail.

18:17:37 BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: My gut says it resolves at yes if he actually... starts playing

18:17:39 mircea_popescu: but that there's a world does not actually give the prisoner's notion of "freedom" any legs.

18:18:17 mircea_popescu: i mean, there's land where "the indies" were supposed to be, too. that doesn't mean columbus found india.

18:19:38 Vexual: she only east and poops

18:19:40 asciilifeform: unlike columbus/indies, just about all people have experienced freedom (in the sense of not having to work) - as children

18:19:43 Vexual: *eats

18:19:54 mircea_popescu: Vexual the whore. because she reuses her crack.

18:20:06 Vexual: the drug dealer charters planes and shit

18:20:09 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform childhood may be a poor experience of anything. freedom included.

18:22:04 asciilifeform: poor experience of anything << ?

18:22:11 mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo im just opening it for ip input.

18:22:34 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform well you wouldn't go through life with your living decided by a five year old's understanding of what's going on, neh ?

18:23:25 Vexual: when does london close?

18:23:46 asciilifeform: i understood that arbeit macht frei sucks as a five year old, just as well as now.

18:24:10 mircea_popescu: just as well, maybe. the same way, i think not.

18:24:32 mircea_popescu: i thought eucalyptus sucked, as a five year old. and alcohol. and so on.

18:24:35 wywialm: Vexual, in 1.5h

18:24:57 Vexual: no that's a juroc joje

18:25:16 Vexual: *jurov joke

18:25:37 wywialm: i'm unfamiliar with that one

18:25:59 Vexual: yes

18:26:12 mircea_popescu: wywialm how goes ?

18:27:17 wywialm: mircea_popescu, good question. As you have not heard much from me, you can deduce that the repo otc business did not do well

18:27:42 mircea_popescu: well to be perfectly fair, i had pre-deduced that last we met.

18:28:20 wywialm: yes, i remember that

18:28:49 mircea_popescu: btw, you writing a piece for the qntra ?

18:30:17 wywialm: i will definitely consider that as soon as i will have anything valuable to say

18:31:23 mircea_popescu: sounds like a plan.

18:33:29 wywialm: speaking of a plan, does anything happen on the options market in BTC? in particular, does the (possibly otc) option market happen?

18:33:56 mircea_popescu: more or less.

18:34:11 mircea_popescu: it's not terribly open to the general public.

18:34:40 wywialm: i guess i'm the member of general public then...

18:35:40 wywialm: is there a way to change that status?

18:36:14 mircea_popescu: well, basically, if you have a lot of volume you advertise it and you'll find someone. if you don't... well... you don't.

18:37:22 wywialm: ah, the standard way

18:38:05 punkman: wywialm: you could use bitbet for some action

18:38:15 punkman: or that thing xinxi made

18:38:55 jurov: btcnut

18:39:11 jurov: or such

18:39:13 wywialm: isn't it only for binary trades? that appplies to bitbet as well

18:40:45 mircea_popescu: you can make an option out of a future and an underlying.

18:44:10 punkman: I left namecheap search open in a tab and it crashed my browser, because javascript is awesome

18:44:57 wywialm: mircea_popescu, quite well, but i don't see how can i use two linear instruments to obtain nonlinear payoff

18:45:22 mircea_popescu: well, you'll likely have to throw a bond in there somewhere.

18:45:25 wywialm: apart from dynamic hedging, where i could use only one

18:45:44 mircea_popescu: anyway, it's a "sort-of" type of thing, obviously.

18:47:06 kakobrekla: heh JS, i recall some sites killing a core2 quad machine

18:48:04 wywialm: mircea_popescu did you mean any static replication?

18:48:36 mircea_popescu: wywialm basically.

18:49:02 mircea_popescu: not sure you can actually get it to be static

18:49:12 mircea_popescu: really, it's a field that can take a lot more work, bitcoin financial synthesis.

18:51:17 wywialm: i could "sort-of-replicate" option payoff trading on a spot market, each day buying/selling according to the delta (the difference being transaction costs and interest rate and noncontinuity)

18:51:33 wywialm: but thats not static

18:51:50 wywialm: do i miss anything?

18:52:34 wywialm: (of course i should have a decent model to obtain reliable deltas)

18:53:39 wywialm: mircea_popescu - but that's not static. do i miss anything?

18:54:01 mircea_popescu: it wouldn't be exactly static, no.

18:54:34 wywialm: what is the exact multiplier of x.eur?

18:54:48 mircea_popescu: 1

18:57:37 wywialm: btw, do you know of any trade on btc realized volatility or realized variance?

18:58:19 mircea_popescu: i don't recall anything being publicly announced.

19:03:25 wywialm: mircea_popescu, did you consider calculating a stock index for MPEx?

19:03:43 mircea_popescu: on and off, yeah.

19:03:53 mircea_popescu: maybe moving the oix from the now gone options to stocks.

19:04:24 wywialm: what types of indices did you consider?

19:05:08 wywialm: the warsaw stock exchange begun with 5 stocks listed as well, and calculated the WIG

19:05:35 mircea_popescu: yeah, i know. anyway, nothing public about all that yet.

19:06:25 wywialm: if you were interested in my thoughts on it, i could throw my 2 cents

19:07:46 mircea_popescu: ty :)

19:08:34 undata: that vid of the 16 year old brat attacking his new truck has me in stitches

19:08:56 undata: coward wouldn't even go for a window, not that he could break one the way he was swinging

19:09:06 mircea_popescu: ^

19:09:41 mircea_popescu: it's really an excellent piece, that.

19:11:45 asciilifeform: that thing made me have emotions.

19:11:46 undata: wouldn't break a window; would swing for his dad. fascinating.

19:12:02 asciilifeform: specifically, wanting to see the idiot executed a la the 'bear jew' scene in 'inglorious bastards'

19:12:11 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform why ?

19:12:11 asciilifeform: i.e. with baseball club.

19:12:26 asciilifeform: ruining a perfectly good truck

19:12:26 mircea_popescu: undata for his dad ?! are you kidding ?

19:12:40 mircea_popescu: i doubt the truck's all that good, looked like a guzzler.

19:12:45 asciilifeform: still.

19:13:05 undata: or whoever the fat fuck standing by was

19:13:15 mircea_popescu: that was his mom.

19:13:21 mircea_popescu: dad is skinny old guy with goatee

19:13:21 undata: haaa

19:13:48 undata: the guy in a black shirt going "you better not"

19:13:57 mircea_popescu: older bro ?

19:14:20 undata: probably 25, still living at home driving the mchummer

19:15:23 mircea_popescu: well, yes, but he got into whatever grad programme.

19:15:30 mircea_popescu: which 16 yo kids can't do, because highschool.

19:15:57 *: asciilifeform confesses he didn't have the audio plugged in

19:16:04 mircea_popescu: anyway, nothing wrong with all those kids living at that particular home, with their wives, girlfriends and offspring. it looks just about big enough.

19:16:05 asciilifeform: was it notable?

19:16:09 mircea_popescu: plenty wrong with them being this dumb tho

19:16:23 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform depends if you like male teenager whining or not.

19:16:28 *: asciilifeform does not

19:17:03 bounce: isn't that like a requirement for teenagers? whine, at least 50% of the time.

19:17:07 jurov: youtube comments say fake

19:17:46 bounce: to get back at the almighty or something?

19:19:21 mircea_popescu: well i dunno, seems to humiliate the kids.

19:19:32 jurov: doomiiinuuus vooobiiiscuuum

19:19:51 mircea_popescu: jurov no they have this thing where they make 13yos sing in front of the whole congregation.

19:19:58 mircea_popescu: all serious and shit.

19:20:00 undata: these are precisely the americans I hope starve first when their bank accounts no longer work

19:20:09 mircea_popescu: undata why ?

19:20:37 undata: because they're conditioned to be utterly insecure about whatever they lack, at no matter what level of wealth

19:20:41 jurov: i'd rather listen to 13yos than old farts

19:20:42 asciilifeform: they'll starve last.

19:21:02 undata: they gorge themselves on cheap "wealth" instead of generating actual wealth for the 'society' they're a part of

19:21:04 mircea_popescu: jurov that may be a matter of taste :)

19:21:23 bounce: cheap knockoff society

19:21:24 mircea_popescu: undata what bizarro social justice stuff is this lol.

19:21:38 undata: mircea_popescu: it's hardly that.

19:21:49 bounce: consumerist socialism?

19:22:00 mircea_popescu: i'll take your word for it, but it kinda sounds it.

19:22:17 undata: the american idea that the highest good is "eat as much as possible" whether the thing eaten is food, cars, etc.

19:22:24 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 14650 @ 0.00074011 = 10.8426 BTC [+]

19:22:35 mircea_popescu: how do you figure the people in the vid fit that theory ? they don't seem overweight.

19:22:38 asciilifeform: tell american about that he should generate wealth, and as likely as not, he'll fear being sent to uranium mines

19:23:16 asciilifeform: i'd fear the mines if someone decreed that i must now generate wealth

19:23:35 undata: asciilifeform: expressing a value is distinct from insisting it be imposed.

19:23:40 asciilifeform: i'm not sure i personally have ever held a day job which was a 'net gain for the motherland'

19:23:57 mircea_popescu: undata ok, but it's not very well expressed. what is the value ?

19:25:54 undata: mircea_popescu: why live if you're a cheap copy of the "rich" guy next to you. Life is about projects, not piling up Hummers. Wealth fuels projects.

19:26:10 asciilifeform: Wealth fuels projects <<<<<

19:26:32 asciilifeform: this. is precisely what i meant by 'i refuse to live as a rat'

19:26:45 mircea_popescu: i'm confused.

19:26:48 asciilifeform: if i can't afford projects, it isn't life.

19:27:00 mircea_popescu: but you can project anything.

19:27:03 The20YearIRCloud: I wouldn't say every american is driven by greed

19:27:04 punkman: well maybe I'd rather live around the guy that minds his own business, his business being his farm, rather than around guy that has neverending stream of "projects"

19:27:07 undata: I am also confused.

19:27:10 The20YearIRCloud: I know plenty that live self-less lives

19:27:13 undata: mircea_popescu: you seem to have many projects.

19:27:14 mircea_popescu: punkman i can see it.

19:27:25 asciilifeform: the particular species of projects i engage in. not sand castles out of cow shit in bangladesh.

19:27:32 asciilifeform: (though those may also be 'projects')

19:27:46 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform well... how about "reengineer all of it"

19:27:54 asciilifeform: ?

19:28:01 mircea_popescu: all of IT*

19:28:15 asciilifeform: aha

19:28:16 undata: asciilifeform: how about "Life is about projects, and wealth should only be interesting inasmuch as it supports those endeavors."

19:28:27 *: asciilifeform fails to apprehend, with puny brain, how this can be done on rat budget

19:28:29 mircea_popescu: i mean, if your bar is that, then you'll never be happy. takes a lot of dough, that project.

19:28:45 mircea_popescu: undata how about "you don't get to say what should be interesting to other people" ?

19:29:00 undata: mircea_popescu: everyone says that to everyone with every sentence.

19:29:02 mircea_popescu: that's what triggered the "wtf sjw is this"

19:29:10 mircea_popescu: i dun agree.

19:29:47 asciilifeform: even the comparatively smaller undertaking i'm presently engaged in - still doesn't come cheap. (i speak of the tooling which i have not charged to the piggy, but also of the fact that i cannot convert btc to usd even for those portions where expenses invoiced. as previously recounted here.)

19:30:15 punkman: asciilifeform: assuming you asked them, how much did olimex quote for cardano assembly?

19:30:35 asciilifeform: asked 'golden phoenix'

19:30:52 undata: mircea_popescu: I would never force anyone to live a certain way (provided it didn't encroach on my own) but I think it's essential to discuss ways to improve the art of living.

19:30:57 asciilifeform: was obscene price tag, for given qty, and they wanted auto-kitting

19:31:15 mircea_popescu: undata well sure, but the problem with this is diogenes. you know the bath tub story ?

19:31:19 undata: I do not

19:31:25 mircea_popescu: but you know who he was ?

19:31:41 undata: greek cynic

19:31:45 undata: reading the story now

19:32:22 mircea_popescu: yeah, guy famously got caught jacking off in the forum (roughly equivalent to putting pron tumblr pix in the serious #b-a chan) and when confronted said that his only regret is that hunger doesn't also abate by rubbing the stomach.

19:32:36 The20YearIRCloud: ascii is this a business where btc was invested for tooling?

19:32:52 mircea_popescu: anyway, at some point the city was being attacked by the enemy, and so every citizen was running up and down trying to make themselves useful. to the "society", by which of course you mean polis.

19:33:03 The20YearIRCloud: Oh a good note about RentalStarter, our banking partner has really stepped up in terms of lending to us

19:33:09 mircea_popescu: and diogenes being woken up by all the ruckus, started pushing the tub he inhabited up and down and all around.

19:33:11 asciilifeform: The20YearIRCloud: to a very limited extent. (mircea_popescu insisted that i bill for the construction of the three-axis robotic platform for prototype assembly.)

19:33:13 mircea_popescu: helping too, you see.

19:33:43 asciilifeform: The20YearIRCloud: all pertinent info is to be found on his site, do read the monthly proclamations if interested in the subject

19:33:58 The20YearIRCloud: TBH i can't remember what project you're involved in

19:34:15 asciilifeform: The20YearIRCloud: s.nsa. first project is a small electronic device, 'cardano.'

19:34:20 undata: mircea_popescu: how does that describe what I've said, in your view?

19:34:49 asciilifeform: The20YearIRCloud: co-authored with mircea_popescu.

19:34:59 mircea_popescu: well, the problem with "discussing the art of living" is diogenes. as in, discussion requires common ground. which isn't a given.

19:35:30 undata: mircea_popescu: doesn't everyone presume his way of living best, or he'd do otherwise?

19:35:37 mircea_popescu: ask asciilifeform ?

19:35:57 mircea_popescu: "best" is a complex concept.

19:36:07 bounce: then I'll take bestest

19:36:38 asciilifeform: lol i was beginning to think that diogenes was mentioned precisely because my 'best' is as odd as his was.

19:36:39 mircea_popescu: but on anecdotic evidence, whether people believe that or don't is more of an indicator of whether the polis is on the upswing or downswing than anything personal.

19:37:01 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform except his is the exact opposite of odd. his best is even.

19:37:11 asciilifeform: ahaha

19:37:23 mircea_popescu: anyway, you;ll appreciate i didn't bring him up in the definition of "fuck you rich"

19:37:27 asciilifeform: doesn't everyone presume his way of living best, or he'd do otherwise << 'you go to war with the enemy you have, not the enemy you wish you had'

19:37:34 asciilifeform: lol

19:37:36 mircea_popescu: the point is still there, tho. fuck you rich is about fuck you, not about rich.

19:38:02 bounce: implying people wish to be fucked over?

19:38:20 kakobrekla: no

19:38:25 kakobrekla: thats why they dont live in the barrels

19:38:29 kakobrekla: for the most part

19:38:31 mircea_popescu: meyer lanski famously told some older street thoughs, as a 12 yo, "you get nuttin' for nuttin'". that's all it is. at 12 he's as rich as me telling the sec how to behave.

19:38:34 asciilifeform: ^ yes. just as freedom may or may not be about a hacksaw, depending on whether one is in prison, and of what material the prison is made (a pair of clippers may suffice for a savage rope cage, etc.)

19:39:02 asciilifeform: (re: 'about fuckyou not the rich')

19:39:04 undata: one minute god-kings; the next liberty

19:39:06 undata: haha

19:39:12 kakobrekla: people slave for not to slave

19:39:19 mircea_popescu: best slavery there is.

19:40:11 *: undata processes on that last bit for a moment

19:42:10 kakobrekla: anyway, the recipe is to say fuck you, go in the barrel and then if you like climb out of it while keeping the finger raised

19:43:20 mircea_popescu: kakobrekla the problem wih that approach is that it's literally indistinguishable from the tack of the 16yo kid in the video.

19:43:35 asciilifeform: here's a random example of what it costs to effectively think about problems in the physical sciences, without a Crown license.

19:43:37 undata: obviously someone thought it worth writing about the barrel or you wouldn't be saying so.

19:43:37 undata: *everything* is stated with the implicit underlying statement that the worldview in which the statement was made is true.

19:43:39 mircea_popescu: selfless sacrifice on the altar of satisfying the societal expectation.

19:43:47 asciilifeform: i have to pay several 100 usd / yrs. to access library.

19:44:03 asciilifeform: (the university kind, that idiot college fauna get into for free)

19:44:07 mircea_popescu: undata a worldview can not be true.

19:44:59 undata: another attempt: all statements are implicitly advocacy.

19:45:08 kakobrekla: mircea_popescu since when do appearances matter?

19:45:17 mircea_popescu: (i don't mean it never is, i mean the noun is outside the domain of availability of the adjective. like a circle can't be heavy, 2d figures have no weight)

19:45:33 bounce: "free" as in part of the crushing tuitition debt package deal

19:45:39 asciilifeform: well yes.

19:45:45 asciilifeform: rolled into that particular chumpatronic prize.

19:45:46 mircea_popescu: kakobrekla well that's the thing, they don';t.

19:45:58 kakobrekla: so is all good.

19:46:06 asciilifeform: or into benefit package of being a loyal servant of Crown 'scientocracy' (professional academics)

19:46:08 mircea_popescu: <undata> another attempt: all statements are implicitly advocacy. << only for the utilitarian/methodist/usretardian school of thought.

19:46:11 asciilifeform: if you're a civilian - you pay.

19:46:12 asciilifeform: and pay.

19:46:22 mircea_popescu: but otherwise this is what the existentialists used to call "petit burgeois"

19:46:36 bounce: a reasonable solution for "publish or perish" would be useful

19:47:01 mircea_popescu: bounce "no tax money spent on education" is a solution.

19:47:10 mircea_popescu: be rich or stfu and work, science is not for "the people".

19:47:21 asciilifeform: bounce: they used to at least let people into the libraries without membership (though could not check out books, or read - the now all - electronic - journals.) but the bums began to nest there.

19:47:28 bounce: bit of a cop out. can't we do better?

19:47:47 mircea_popescu: who's "we" ?

19:48:12 mircea_popescu: but no, we can't do better, because otherwise the fucking bums start nesting there.

19:48:19 asciilifeform: 'once there was The People, terror gave it birth... once there was The People, and it made a Hell of Earth...' (kipling?)

19:48:21 mircea_popescu: like, the sort of people churning out "science" about stuff.

19:48:24 asciilifeform: (:re we)

19:49:01 asciilifeform: i give the library tidbit as an example of what, in my mind, 'not living as rat' involves

19:49:22 undata: if only there were some way to cheaply stockpile and grant access to documents.

19:49:24 asciilifeform: for a human vegetable, who only needs to afford a hovel to eat, shit, and fuck in, and a tv screen - different cost.

19:49:29 bounce: thing is, I do want to filter the pool for the talent regardless of parental wealth

19:49:48 mircea_popescu: what is talent ?

19:50:07 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i think that cost may be more than a few hundies a year.

19:50:18 asciilifeform: that's library alone

19:50:20 The20YearIRCloud: asciilifeform: is it that way around the world? I know it is here - bums everywhere at the library

19:50:22 asciilifeform: (the figure above)

19:50:35 mircea_popescu: The20YearIRCloud amusingly, bums here mostly sleep in banks.

19:50:56 mircea_popescu: i kinda suspect where bums sleep is indicative of societal notions

19:50:56 kakobrekla: guard the safes yo

19:51:07 asciilifeform: The20YearIRCloud: library is heated in the winter, cool in the summer, no one hassles the poor bomzh to buy anything

19:51:18 asciilifeform: and quiet, very few people per square metre.

19:51:26 asciilifeform: usually, entire floors empty.

19:51:28 asciilifeform: so perfect.

19:51:46 mircea_popescu: i wonder how many social studies chicks fuck bums because they're bums.

19:51:51 mircea_popescu: 1 a year ? 100 ? 10000 ?

19:52:08 asciilifeform: freshly-minted bums (or well-kept hobos) likely.

19:52:16 undata: mircea_popescu: again, anyone speaking about anything intends for the listener to be influenced by the content.

19:52:19 asciilifeform: the kind that walked in the same suit for a decade - less plausible

19:52:22 undata: I can't see how it could be any other way.

19:52:33 mircea_popescu: well so you can't see.

19:53:21 The20YearIRCloud: mircea_popescu: are banks over there open 24/7, or access to parts?

19:53:29 The20YearIRCloud: Around here they're on lockdown outside of normal business hours

19:53:40 mircea_popescu: The20YearIRCloud the atm parts.

19:53:51 undata: mircea_popescu: I think in english "gratuitous" means something far off from what you're aiming at.

19:53:53 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: in english, usually 'crime of passion' ?

19:53:56 The20YearIRCloud: Your ATMs aren't outside?

19:54:05 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform no dude, not at all.

19:54:14 undata: "uncalled for; lacking good reason; unwarranted."

19:54:19 mircea_popescu: "Un acte gratuit est le fait d'agir en dehors de toute raison, motivation ou incitation."

19:54:24 undata: and.. ain't that some shit.

19:54:46 undata: how could it be possible to act without motivation?

19:54:52 kakobrekla: also says it means 'free shit'

19:54:56 asciilifeform: banks 24/7 << story. where i live, you can walk into the vestibule of a bank (where the atm often lives, on 'bad streets') using a magnetic card. implication is that it must be the bank's - but this is false.

19:54:57 mircea_popescu: undata listen, go read le diable et le bon dieu, sartre.

19:54:58 asciilifeform: any card will do!

19:56:17 mircea_popescu: aww that sucks.

19:56:46 asciilifeform: (for those wondering why it is so easy to sc4mz0r american magnetic cards, read log.)

19:57:09 asciilifeform: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=13-02-2014#499334

19:57:09 assbot: Logged on 13-02-2014 01:00:26; asciilifeform: fact is, 'carding' could disappear overnight if the card issuers wished it. (even in countries with ubiquitous old-style magnetic readers. devices which present the correct magnetism, using one-time account #s, are trivial.)

19:57:11 asciilifeform: etc

19:57:44 kakobrekla: implication is that it must be the bank's < we also have such setups with but no such implication as atms are compatible over all banks

19:57:59 punkman: asciilifeform: seen same card activated doors in many places around eu

19:58:09 mircea_popescu: yeah no such implication.

19:58:44 asciilifeform: at any rate, just about any magnetic card with the right number of tracks (was it 3?) will open the gate.

19:59:06 FabianB: jurov: looks good now :)

19:59:58 nubbins`: asciilifeform will likely take a couple days

20:00:11 punkman: also bums love to sleep next to ATMs, and they all have some kind of card that will open the door

20:00:12 asciilifeform: nubbins`: what was your starting point again?

20:00:18 asciilifeform: nubbins`: i just want to test build chain

20:00:42 nubbins`: plan was to take stock 0.5.3, remove src/qt/* and attempt to build

20:00:53 nubbins`: and use that as a starting point

20:01:06 nubbins`: so you could use stock 0.5.3 to test

20:01:09 asciilifeform: what was the turd in 0.6 that made us stop short of it ?

20:01:34 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform the whole thing was a debate over whether it should be earliest or latest that still works. apparently earliest won

20:01:39 asciilifeform: aha.

20:01:43 *: asciilifeform rereads log

20:02:02 *: mircea_popescu votes yesterday as "most likely to be reread"

20:02:04 mircea_popescu: it'

20:02:08 nubbins`: ah, nothing in particular, i don't think. merging bugfixes etc from 0.6 would be next i guess

20:02:08 asciilifeform: lol!

20:02:11 mircea_popescu: it's like "the hangover" in there.

20:02:59 asciilifeform: who has a known vintage tarball of 0.5.3 ?

20:03:22 asciilifeform: (as in, personally leeched as long ago as possible, and sat since)

20:03:34 asciilifeform: kindly post hash.

20:22:47 midnightmagic: coin control is unnecessary now, create/decode/sign raw transaction exists plus listunspent and listaddressgroupings

20:23:09 asciilifeform: hard disk is unnecessary, magnetized needles exist.

20:24:39 kakobrekla: exists < yeah in which version ?

20:25:06 midnightmagic: pretty easy to use them. I have a very tiny perl script that does the same thing..

20:25:16 kakobrekla: which version?

20:25:30 mircea_popescu: no he has a point, you can just make your own tx and forget the stock selection code

20:25:32 midnightmagic: mm.. dunno when they were introduced. it's been a while.

20:25:50 asciilifeform: make your own tx, with soviet calculator.

20:26:06 asciilifeform: people seem to forget why we even bought computers.

20:26:22 mircea_popescu: i didn't mean by hand yo

20:26:24 midnightmagic: I just don't trust the coin control nor tx selection to pull the most-private from the unspent list is all. It is a bit more work to make decisions about it though

20:27:05 kakobrekla: making your own tx is best way to go

20:27:16 kakobrekla: cc makes it easy

20:28:40 midnightmagic: not for privacy imo. but I guess it does make tx creation easy.

20:29:13 kakobrekla: well you control the privacy

20:30:48 kakobrekla: stock selection code < as shitty as it gets.

20:31:52 mircea_popescu: don't knock it, it's what they use to make hambuger meat.

20:35:06 *: asciilifeform forgot what a sack of shit classic bitcoind is, in terms of build deps

20:38:19 asciilifeform: mats_cd03: the best idiots are the tor-miners.

20:38:31 asciilifeform: mats_cd03: how one would even arrive at the idea of miner connected through tor?

20:38:38 mats_cd03: decentralize!

20:38:50 mats_cd03: anonymous!

20:39:08 asciilifeform: not a single mainstream mineatron, afaik, does anything useful against even a very pedestrian ssl mitm.

20:39:20 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform as much as a new news site brings about ddos.

20:39:26 mircea_popescu: these are real problems derps are trying to solve.

20:39:42 asciilifeform: which problems?

20:39:57 mircea_popescu: not that safe to be a miner out there.

20:40:01 asciilifeform: ahaha

20:40:39 asciilifeform: sufficiently large miner can, presumably, afford $maxint worth of proxies or even fallback isp.

20:41:05 mircea_popescu: yeah, but tor miner is not sufficientl large.

20:41:06 asciilifeform: if the only enemy is ddos

20:41:52 mircea_popescu: you dunno what the enemy is until mats_cd03 steals your .2 btc

20:41:52 asciilifeform: at one point, chumpnet miners often went through tor

20:42:03 mats_cd03: ill be rich someday

20:42:18 mats_cd03: i will use that .2 btc to buy a ranch and a new stereo

20:42:38 asciilifeform: undeserved prize tastes ten times as good.

20:42:42 asciilifeform: or how did it go.

20:43:16 mats_cd03: i thought it was a peach?

20:44:04 bounce: so, better than oranges?

20:44:34 asciilifeform: miners << is there any actual reason why an arbitrarily large miner should not choose to appear as a large number of arbitrarily small ones, from the network standpoint ?

20:44:41 mats_cd03: better than the red delicious

20:44:48 mats_cd03: which is in fact not delicious, only red

20:44:50 asciilifeform: why is it even still possible to identify 'large miners' as existing.

20:45:23 mats_cd03: bad software?

20:45:37 nubbins`: wow, building bitcoin on osx is actually a bit tangly

20:46:02 nubbins`: mostly because of all this brew/macports gibberish

20:46:22 asciilifeform: nubbins` confronted with fact of having bought a fake unix box?

20:46:38 nubbins`: it's more unix than windows, at least ;p

20:46:50 asciilifeform: microshit-free.

20:46:57 mircea_popescu: thestringpuller here's one for you : what concert costs 45 cents ?

20:48:20 asciilifeform: ^ the busy signal in a u.s. pay phone (if you can still find one!) -- costs 0.50, and you'll find a 'nickel' in the coin return tray.

20:48:27 asciilifeform: 45 cents for concert.

20:48:55 kakobrekla: <asciilifeform> microshit-free. < id rather be apple free than ms free given only those 2 options. call me retarded or whatever dun care.

20:49:01 asciilifeform: lol!

20:50:40 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: windows tablet existed.

20:50:56 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: you can perhaps guess what they were like, by the fact of having to ask the question

20:50:58 mircea_popescu: i never saw one

20:51:00 kakobrekla: just cant swallow apple. sry no can do.

20:51:26 asciilifeform: kakobrekla: you can almost pretend it's a 'sun' or other weird ancient unixlike

20:51:33 asciilifeform: esp. if you behead it and use a terminal.

20:51:47 joecool: just took delivery of a mbp and am attempting to resize it's cancer of an os to put anything on

20:51:51 joecool: yeah would do windows before this

20:51:54 kakobrekla: whats next, use phone and pretend its computer ?

20:52:11 joecool: chinese killed the thinkpad though

20:52:18 bounce: boo. hiss.

20:52:34 mircea_popescu: incidentally, can you format the ipad, run debian on it ?

20:52:47 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: debian - no idea. netbsd - almost certain.

20:53:00 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: ask enthusiasts if there's any i/o support for it

20:53:02 mircea_popescu: touch drivers and errything ?

20:53:12 mircea_popescu: uhm, it has wireless neh ?

20:53:26 asciilifeform: well depends what you need it for

20:53:43 asciilifeform: if for perverse file server in a closet - yes, can do right now.

20:53:54 asciilifeform: if as a 'touch' gizmo - check first.

20:54:25 asciilifeform: also easier to do this with non-apple gizmos, where there is not an elaborate boobytrap chipset in there, to try to keep you from 'jailbreaking'

20:54:39 nubbins`: ^

20:55:29 mircea_popescu: so it's not basically a laptop board with a soldered over bios chip ?

20:55:45 asciilifeform: 'arm'-compatible.

20:56:25 asciilifeform: a few vendors (samsung, and others) make the reverse of this - 'arm' laptop.

20:56:48 mircea_popescu: aha

20:57:32 joecool: all sorts of weird "features" in OSX like, "stuck" processes

20:58:08 nubbins`: force quit kicks ass over whatever the fuck you do in windows again
