00:47:17 ben_vulpes: https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/32423?project=1 << emacs over x11. am i the only one who does this?

00:47:19 assbot: FS#32423 : [emacs] emacsclient consistently crashes emacs ... ( http://bit.ly/1Be6TBu )

00:47:47 asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: over x11 vs what ?

00:47:55 ben_vulpes: in a terminal.

00:48:02 asciilifeform: i've only ever used emacs in x11

00:48:24 asciilifeform: ditto most folks i know

00:48:31 ben_vulpes: i've finally grown up a bit then i guess.

00:48:39 asciilifeform: is ben_vulpes using some perverse system ?

00:48:47 ben_vulpes: oh come now, don't be coy.

00:48:47 asciilifeform: netbsd on dead goat ?

00:48:52 asciilifeform: ah let me guess

00:49:02 *: ben_vulpes is baffled as to why guessing would be necessary

00:49:10 asciilifeform: iirc the canonical emacs on apple is 'aquamacs'

00:49:18 thestringpuller: http://i.imgur.com/AkFy40Z.jpg << hey look consumers!

00:49:24 asciilifeform: mostly trad emacs but with gui hooks for the os

00:49:30 ben_vulpes: right.

00:49:45 ben_vulpes: the progression was

00:51:40 ben_vulpes: aquamacs -> railwaycat emacs port -> erc in a terminal on a remote host -> frustrations with tiling window managers in os x -> discovery of xmonad, ratpoison and friends -> x11 configuration -> stumpwm -> emacs on os x in x11 -> horrific bastard mode of "znc" on local machine with "znc" running on remote host -> emacs on remote host as bouncer displaying on a local x11 frame

00:52:16 ben_vulpes: followed by emacsclient crashing emacs --daemon every time the x11 frame disappeared

00:52:25 ben_vulpes: all for want of a workstation, i suppose.

00:52:52 thestringpuller: ben_vulpes: VIM 4 LYFE

00:53:01 *: thestringpuller graffiti's his nice EMACS setup

00:53:54 asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: i presume the second item on this list was a build of traditional emacs for apple ?

00:54:03 asciilifeform: why switched from that to the remote thing ?

00:54:20 asciilifeform: (if this was in the log - link to log)

00:58:35 ben_vulpes: asciilifeform: novice's bouncer.

00:59:01 ben_vulpes: i like manipulating text in emacs, but wanted a persistent connection to b-a.

00:59:35 ben_vulpes: the most obvious route to me at the time was to run emacs in a terminal on a remote host.

01:00:10 *: asciilifeform opened today's mail, is leafing through 'ada 95 rationale' and it's a joy

01:01:10 asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: i enjoy colours, good fonts, etc. and so will not use emacs in a term if there's any choice about it

01:01:44 thestringpuller: ben_vulpes: why not use a screen multiplexer? like tmux or screen?

01:03:07 cazalla: thestringpuller, i like this one better :P http://i.imgur.com/aFYebE1.gif

01:03:10 assbot: ... ( http://bit.ly/1Be9Fqy )

01:03:41 ben_vulpes: asciilifeform: what typeface do you use?

01:05:24 asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: laugh if you will, misc-fixed-medium-r-normal

01:07:10 ben_vulpes: i don't really know enough to laugh.

01:07:25 asciilifeform: emacs is unbeatable on account of the customizations - not only of appearance (i've a different highlighting mode for every type of animal, and most are not the stock included ones) but mechanics - how do folks get along on other editors without 'hungry arrow keys', for example ?

01:07:25 ben_vulpes: all i really know is how to ask about what others do and run my own experiments.

01:07:57 ben_vulpes: hungry arrow keys?

01:07:57 asciilifeform: aha

01:08:08 ben_vulpes: i've no idea what you mean...

01:08:37 asciilifeform: as in, never having to hit an arrow key more than once to traverse a block of whitespace

01:08:37 mike_c: press ctrl?

01:08:37 *: trinque M-x package-install

01:08:54 asciilifeform: mike_c: not same

01:09:02 asciilifeform: mike_c: and not cross-mode

01:13:37 trinque: ben_vulpes: https://github.com/neersighted/nbnc << I might try this out

01:13:38 assbot: neersighted/nbnc · GitHub ... ( http://bit.ly/1BebNyF )

01:13:47 trinque: it claims to be what I want

01:14:35 trinque: hm, no buffering

01:14:37 trinque: nvm

01:14:47 ben_vulpes: give up

01:14:51 ben_vulpes: put emacs on a remote host

01:14:54 ben_vulpes: x11 tunnel

01:14:57 ben_vulpes: be stupid like me

01:15:22 trinque: :(

01:15:32 trinque: right now I'm just weechatting in a tmux+mosh

01:15:51 trinque: unix philosophy is dead

01:15:56 trinque: where is the simple bouncer

01:16:28 trinque: heh! https://github.com/nicferrier/shoes-off

01:16:29 assbot: nicferrier/shoes-off · GitHub ... ( http://bit.ly/1Becqbe )

01:16:49 trinque: would hilariously not remove remote emacs from your current setup

01:17:50 thestringpuller: asciilifeform: re: hungry arrow keys << VIM i rarely use arrow keys...

01:19:19 ben_vulpes: thestringpuller: re tmux etc like alf, i pretty much refuse to work in a terminal

01:19:35 ben_vulpes: it's good for the things for which it is good

01:19:40 ben_vulpes: but for other things, it is not.

01:19:42 ben_vulpes: htop - good

01:19:44 ben_vulpes: emacs - not.

01:19:50 thestringpuller: trinque: weechat interesting. i use irssi.

01:20:09 ben_vulpes: for instance, i hate weechat and irssi.

01:20:20 thestringpuller: ben_vulpes: i used to belive this but I don't like using mice. I find the use of a mouse kills my wrist.

01:20:32 ben_vulpes: cutting and pasting etc must fit within emacs text manipulation paradigms.

01:20:38 ben_vulpes: thestringpuller: who said anything about mice?

01:20:39 thestringpuller: this is also why I hate IDE's that have "buttons"

01:20:43 ben_vulpes: i never take my hands off the keyboard.

01:20:49 ben_vulpes: do you take me for a menu-traverser?

01:20:53 thestringpuller: what is your stack?

01:20:58 thestringpuller: ^- ben_vulpes

01:21:30 trinque: thestringpuller: weechat's kind of butt, just less butt than other things I've used

01:21:58 thestringpuller: trinque: ah. the only client i've used is mirc, and as I just told ben_vulpes i hate mice.

01:22:12 trinque: what mouse?

01:22:22 ben_vulpes: thestringpuller: stack?

01:22:30 trinque: shit I even vimperator

01:23:00 thestringpuller: thestringpuller: like what OS, browser, text editor do you use on your local that you don't have to use a mouse to navigate?

01:23:18 ben_vulpes: fine, you got me. not "never", but only under duress.

01:23:28 ben_vulpes: and progressively less as i sharpen my sword/till my garden.

01:23:41 thestringpuller: i'm trying to figure out your workflow I guess.

01:23:45 ben_vulpes: os x

01:23:49 thestringpuller: i've onyl been able to really accomplish that in terminal

01:23:49 ben_vulpes: emacs in x11

01:24:00 trinque: he's dialing in keywords on xkeyscore so he can find you

01:24:04 thestringpuller: oh so emacs does all the lifting as you said earlier

01:24:14 ben_vulpes: that is the point of using emacs.

01:24:30 ben_vulpes: text editor, debugger, grep wrapper, vcs wrapper, irc client...

01:24:49 ben_vulpes: tags browser...

01:24:57 ben_vulpes: granted, nothing that vim doesn't do (poorly)

01:24:58 thestringpuller: i really prefer a shell...

01:25:08 thestringpuller: alright them is fighting words

01:25:39 thestringpuller: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Editor_war << hah

01:25:47 ben_vulpes: i started with vim - i know somewhat whereof i speak.

01:27:41 thestringpuller: i don't use VIM outside text editing so I don't know the capacicty to which it is customizable

01:28:13 thestringpuller: i also don't use emacs but when trying to learn, it really really really made me want toss my computer out a window

01:28:21 trinque: thestringpuller: evil mode

01:28:27 trinque: you'll be right at home

01:29:13 thestringpuller: maybe, but also I don't know LISP ;)

01:29:32 thestringpuller: it's on my bucket list

01:29:36 trinque: sure you do; just don't realize it yet

01:29:37 thestringpuller: along with starting a crime family with asciilifeform

01:29:41 trinque: I bet you know python or something

01:29:55 thestringpuller: yea I know python. and also slowly ruby

01:30:02 thestringpuller: but the lispi-ness of it evades me for sure

01:31:04 thestringpuller: i use procedural paradigm when using Python and Ruby tho...

01:31:13 thestringpuller: altho ruby seems to punish you for it

01:31:53 trinque: yeah, but your other languages have expressions

01:32:11 trinque: just imagine everything's one of those, and there are no implicit orders of operation except up

01:32:35 thestringpuller: trinque: lets have a LISP tutorial when I'm tripping instead of drunk ;)

01:32:40 trinque: heh

01:32:44 trinque: ask someone more experienced

01:32:57 trinque: hacking my emacs and stumpwm configs have helped a great deal

01:48:45 asciilifeform: jurov!!!

02:00:44 asciilifeform: it isn't unimportant in the least bit

02:03:45 thestringpuller: good evening mircea_popescu

02:10:14 asciilifeform: forgot to include the detail, in profound_retardation.txt, that the sandisk drive is a 60gb unit.

02:10:37 asciilifeform: (yes, the capacity read by both u-boot and bsd is garbage, though deterministic garbage)

02:11:26 asciilifeform: another data point - the linux kernel originally shipped with 'pogo' had precisely the same behaviour

02:11:28 asciilifeform: (unlike arch)

02:12:04 asciilifeform: if i knew for a fact that the bug -only- triggers on 'sandisk' drives, it wouldn't be worth thinking about at all

02:12:10 asciilifeform: but i cannot guarantee this.

02:17:18 decimation: err 0145

02:17:45 mircea_popescu: well i lost a main router somehow too. supposedly was a power outage downtown

02:18:31 asciilifeform: today?

02:18:32 mircea_popescu: decimation im not working on assbot, kako is

02:18:38 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform earlier when i went down

02:18:48 asciilifeform: and -lost- as in smoked?

02:19:13 decimation: mircea_popescu: ah okay

02:19:18 mircea_popescu: i dunno. ima have it looked into tomorro

02:20:19 asciilifeform: perhaps just a routine ocelot-in-cableway incident

02:20:40 decimation: or crocodile-in-toilet perhaps?

02:20:52 mircea_popescu: myeah.

02:21:32 *: asciilifeform imagines one day roto-rooting toilet and pulling up pieces of suit, briefcase...

02:21:50 *: asciilifeform would prefer to live with alligators

02:34:38 mike_c: it's a bubble :)

02:34:57 thestringpuller: mike_c: hard to distinguish buyer frenzy from investors paying for content.

02:35:16 mike_c: i thought that a couple times, but then the bids kept going up.

02:35:32 thestringpuller: well no one is really selling

02:35:50 mike_c: right, but bids don't need to keep going up to incentivize writers

02:36:39 mircea_popescu: i imagine it's just like bitcoin : not many shares, many people heard of it.

02:37:09 thestringpuller: so people buying MPEx seats just to subsidize qntra?

02:37:11 thestringpuller: doesn't make sense...

02:37:12 mike_c: plus it hasn't tried to make money yet (with one tiny exception), so it's still hopes and dreams phase.

02:37:35 thestringpuller: mike_c: i don't think it can make money yet. it's in egg phase. egg must hatch first.

02:37:45 thestringpuller: right now qntra is competing for intelligent eyeballs

02:38:03 mike_c: yeah, i agree it shouldn't be trying to monetize yet. but that helps fuel investor optimism.

02:38:43 thestringpuller: well given fraudsters is well monetized I wouldn't worry too much about qntra implementing a revenue stream in the future

02:39:26 mike_c: fraudsters's monetization level doesn't support the current qntra share price to me.

15:27:27 nubbins`: re: phones and expectations

15:27:34 nubbins`: there's a really, really easy solution to this

15:27:41 thestringpuller: pete_dushenski: still can't get scoopbot to announce contravex articles?

15:27:55 nubbins`: turn off the ring and vibrate functions on your phone, and leave them off.

15:29:03 chetty: <nubbins`> turn off the ring and vibrate functions on your phone, and leave them off.// most people just cant do that, already addicted

15:29:08 PeterL: but scoopbot was not looking at the titles, so I am kinda at a loss as to why it doesn't like contravex

15:29:10 thestringpuller: nubbins`: i do this with texts. No vibration no sound. Have to put it on ring profile for them to make a noise. But usually you start to check messages when you feel like it rather than compulsively.

15:29:15 pete_dushenski: ^i'm even reduced to scooping for qntra now.

15:29:29 thestringpuller: chetty: information addiction is treatable tho

15:29:39 nubbins`: chetty most people don't *want* to

15:29:51 chetty: nubbins`, +++

15:30:00 pete_dushenski: it's the lowest calorie addiciton going

15:30:02 nubbins`: they're secretly pleased every time their phone dings in the presence of others

15:30:11 pete_dushenski: you can't see your brain turning into a fat, slothful mess

15:30:26 nubbins`: thestringpuller the "down side" is that for the first few weeks, people get snarky with you

15:30:35 nubbins`: but after a few "yeah, i leave it on silent"s

15:30:40 nubbins`: they adjust their expectations

15:30:59 pete_dushenski: ty

15:31:16 thestringpuller: nubbins`: i find those who get snarky are the most addicted.

15:31:42 nubbins`: "didn't you see my texts?!?!?!?! i texted you 8 times!!!!!"

15:31:55 nubbins`: y'know, just in case the first 7 "ding!!!!"s were missed

15:32:17 thestringpuller: nubbins`: one symptom of information addiction is "forgets to callback". People who check their phone compulsively will see a text or missed call and make note in working memory to get back with the person.

15:32:32 nubbins`: and never do

15:32:33 chetty: <<< power out day before yesterday, discovered I forgot to charge my phone, for oh about 2 weeks :)

15:34:05 nubbins`: soy nubbins

15:34:34 chetty: nubbins`, yeah got to admit I was a little annoyed with myself, no landline here either so no phone charged was kinda dumb

15:34:41 mircea_popescu: This expectation is so ingrained that people in meetings routinely answer their mobile phones to say << maybe what has really changed is the expectation re meetings. just a decade or two ago, people would have expected meetings to serve a rational purpose and end with a result.

15:34:49 mircea_popescu: neither is the case today, people just hang around.

15:34:51 nubbins`: (incidentally, why does all the milk in the organic section loudly proclaim "I'M MILK!" in spanish?

15:35:19 thestringpuller: mircea_popescu: this is very precise.

15:35:19 mircea_popescu: pete_dushenski> "because ADOPTION" is my new favourite slogan for redditards et al. << orphans seeking adoption. nothing wrong with the picture.

15:35:36 nubbins`: mircea_popescu i recall at one office job, my boss' boss' boss was getting a promotion, and so called all 120 programmers into a boardroom, 30 at a time, to explain about his new responsibilities but nothing will change for the rest of us

15:35:46 mircea_popescu: right /

15:35:48 nubbins`: guy stole 120 hours on the company. a month's work. when an email woulda done

15:35:56 nubbins`: this is what meetings are

15:35:58 mircea_popescu: so why wouldn't you answer the phone. it's more like a boring highschool class than a meeting.

15:36:30 thestringpuller: mircea_popescu: people just hang around << i find this is because people lack focus during the meeting. You stay on topic until someone mentions something off topic. "Blah blah blha pink floyd" "Oh you like pink floyd?" 30 minutes later you realize you're still talking about a 70's rock band and not about that thing you're supposed to be meeting about.

15:36:34 mircea_popescu: no he was being proactive and communicaty or whatchamacallit.

15:36:44 nubbins`: yeah

15:36:50 nubbins`: doing his due diligence on a go-forward basis

15:36:55 mircea_popescu: thestringpuller lack of focus lack of schmokus. it's because they're impotent. they know they're impotent.

15:36:59 mircea_popescu: what else to do ?

15:37:08 nubbins`: mind you, this was the head of IT

15:37:20 nubbins`: "how do i get my sound turned on?" head of IT

15:37:30 *: nubbins` shudders at memory

15:37:43 nubbins`: incidentally, last monday was my 2-year anniversary of retirement

15:38:11 thestringpuller: mircea_popescu: what else to do ? << learn to concentrate better instead of being a fucking child?

15:38:20 nubbins`: folks: "any regrets?" me: "not doing it sooner"

15:38:28 PeterL: get better co-workers?

15:41:13 mircea_popescu: nubbins` turned on as in, sexually ?

15:42:30 nubbins`: turned on, as in i wanna hear the angry birds smash the pigs

15:43:37 nubbins`: it was at this job that i realized just because you work as a computer programmer, doesn't mean you know even the basics of what computers are and how they work

15:44:08 nubbins`: "right-click and copy that" "what?"

15:44:22 nubbins`: "o.O"

15:52:11 nubbins`: chetty plenty of amoebas floating around in the upper levels

15:52:24 pete_dushenski: "The U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Bureau of the Fiscal Service (Fiscal Service) today announced that Pay.gov, the government’s secure web based collection portal for payments to federal agencies, now offers both PayPal and Dwolla as payment options." << from a few days ago.

15:52:35 nubbins`: once an incompetent worker reaches a certain longevity, their dismissal is tacit admittance that they've been fooling everyone all along

15:52:58 nubbins`: so rather than facing "yep, we've let this dead weight collect a cheque for 15 years"

15:53:07 pete_dushenski: ^"please don't use cash for anything ever because only bad people use cash"

15:53:09 nubbins`: they just give 'em a different job in another department

15:54:15 nubbins`: which, if it didn't accompany a pay raise, would engender the same line of questioning as a dismissal

15:54:38 mircea_popescu: nubbins` pretty much has it.

15:54:57 nubbins`: eventually they learn their way around enough that latecomers can easily be fooled into thinking that the variety speak is representative of skill, not imitation

15:55:42 nubbins`: "who, alex? he's been here longer than i have! knows the place inside out!"

15:55:49 nubbins`: but all of alex's projects are always fucked up and late

15:56:23 nubbins`: usually due to "external factors" or "changing requirements"

15:57:01 mircea_popescu: the problem essentially is that specialist groups do need a variety talk, however "politeness" combined with that results into a lot of nooks and crannies where alex can hide.

15:57:10 nubbins`: absolutely

15:57:11 mircea_popescu: it's not coincidental that all successful specialist groups are irreverent.

15:57:30 nubbins`: when a large, once-profitable company suddenly goes belly-up or massively scales back, you can expect to find a high percentage of alexes on the payroll

15:58:04 mircea_popescu: you can also expect to find the last time someone made fart jokes publicly @ the expense of people present buried under at least a decade of history.

15:58:19 nubbins`: bahahahaha.

16:01:14 nubbins`: incidentally, you could go on a meaty tangent about public employees right about here

17:28:24 mircea_popescu: that cap agricultural benefits thing is uniquely misguided.

17:29:13 mircea_popescu: "rich" does not mean what the poor imagine it means. the notion of running a farm on 26k subsidies a year... heh.

17:30:05 mircea_popescu: here's the thing : just because inflation has made every pauper think he holds money doesn't change the fact that a farmer today is worth a hundred million just by simply maintaining equality with a farmer of relatively the same social importance back in 1615.

17:31:59 BingoBoingo: Or they've surrendered in some cases to being a form of sharecropper. Depends on what and where they farm as well as how daddy ran the business

17:32:09 mircea_popescu: james smith's farm fed five hundred people in 1615. these aren't "500 out of the total pop of 5mn" for the same reason discussed in the thread about "average life expectancy"

17:32:18 mircea_popescu: most of those 5mn picked rags in london.

17:33:08 mircea_popescu: keeping the same *proportions* that farm's easily running deficits of millions today, for the reasons explained in http://fraudsters.com/2013/the-corn-thing/

Buried in the cross-compliance regulations is a measure called GAEC 12. This insists that, to receive their money, farmers must prevent "unwanted vegetation" from growing on their land. (The rest of us call it wildlife habitat.) Even if their land is producing nothing, they must cut, graze or spray i

17:50:25 BingoBoingo: "But M855 has well-documented shortcomings against soft targets (see Somalia, Iraq, etc.) The other common loading, M193, is more effective against soft targets. So the side effect of this ruling would be that more AR-15 owners would buy rounds that are more effective in the typical domestic shooting. The only people this rule change protects is the government, whose varmints wear Kevlar."

17:56:32 mircea_popescu: the "3d printed" guns were obviously going to push towards regulation of bullets.

The historical Jonah, if he can be so called, was glad enough to escape, but in imagination, in day-dream, countless people have envied him. It is, of course, quite obvious why. The whale's belly is simply a womb big enough for an adult. There you are, in the dark, cushioned space that exactly fits you, with yards of blubber between yours

22:23:48 asciilifeform: elf and reality, able to keep up an attitude of the completest indifference, no matter what happens. A storm that would sink all the battleships in the world would hardly reach you as an echo. Even the whale's own movements would probably be imperceptible to you. He might be wallowing among the surface waves or shooting down into the blackness of the middle seas (a mile deep, according to Herman Melville), but you would never

22:36:45 nubbins`: well, the last one was sort of a "look at this neat thing" approach

22:37:10 nubbins`: next one: "look at these people doing it wrong"

22:38:02 mircea_popescu: about 300 years worth of experience with printing show that negative pamphlets only work in dictatorships.

22:38:13 mircea_popescu: unless it's "look at stalin sucking cock" it ain't worth printing.

22:38:16 nubbins`: heh.

22:38:18 nubbins`: yeah, fair

22:38:26 mircea_popescu: the penthouse interview with the faloon prostitute a fine example.

22:38:56 thestringpuller: mircea_popescu: but diss records work all the time. that's why biggie and tupac iz ded.

22:39:13 nubbins`: thestringpuller he has a point

22:39:31 nubbins`: for that matter, you do as well

22:44:02 nubbins`: after an exhaustive search, i found precisely one dude who said his nephew would do it

22:44:22 nubbins`: and it was such a shit job i don't even know if i should describe it

22:45:38 nubbins`: anyway, there's just over a bitcoin and a half there

22:48:43 nubbins`: mildly (but only mildly) surprising that people will suck pennies out of a btc faucet all day, but literally walking around with a roll of packing tape is too much work for $15/hr

22:48:53 mircea_popescu: i paid for this ?!

22:49:32 *: nubbins` nods

22:49:44 nubbins`: well, no.

22:49:50 nubbins`: you paid for the 50 for what's his name

22:50:08 nubbins`: then i printed another 50 to sell to forum rubes, with the express intention of the profit being used in this manner
