00:26:14 mircea_popescu: argentina is so musically fucking weird omg...

00:26:24 mircea_popescu: they all sing the same song. they all sing the SAME SONG

00:26:29 nubbins`: http://www.reddit.com/r/Bitcoin/comments/30ay6u/almost_10_more_full_nodes_since_this_morning/

00:26:30 assbot: Almost 10% more full nodes since this morning connected to the network. Over 400 more in US. Is there some sort of competition I don't know of ? : Bitcoin ... ( http://bit.ly/1GoHWoX )

00:26:30 mircea_popescu: the same song. they sing it. same. song.

00:26:35 nubbins`: heh!

00:27:09 mircea_popescu: yeah, the competition is called "mp said the nodes are the weakest point of bitcoin, bitcoin ppls are fixing it"

00:28:04 asciilifeform: what song ?

00:29:36 mike_c: mircea_popescu: maybe not. could be a much dumber reason. "It's all one node just with 600 addresses. This is what happens when you fucking pay people to sybil attack the network."

00:29:43 mircea_popescu: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1IOGFENyGJM <<

00:29:45 assbot: "BRASIL DECIME QUE SE SIENTE" CON LETRA HD - "Hit" de los Hinchas Argentinos en Brasil - YouTube ... ( http://bit.ly/1Na9xMA )

00:29:57 mircea_popescu: they change the words. but the song fprever the same. no matter what happens. this is the song.

00:30:06 mircea_popescu: and amusingly they think it's some pop rock of the 70s.

00:32:24 mircea_popescu: mike_c the notion of "counting nodes" is bizarre in the first place.

00:32:33 mircea_popescu: why not count "water taps" while at it.

00:32:39 nubbins`: heh

00:33:35 mircea_popescu: ie, most infrastructure nodes i know of work on SOME SORT ofload balancing or othewr, necessarily thus exposing variable ips to the world etc.

00:34:11 nubbins`: <nubbins`> anyway, only counting 0.8.x and above, that's like giving a population count of every country in the world, but excluding everyone under 5 feet tall.

00:34:30 nubbins`: and also only measuring the head of each household

00:35:14 mircea_popescu: in other news, http://41.media.tumblr.com/9c8248cf59d3897128ba0917e70e831a/tumblr_njxlug21jx1r3tor7o1_1280.jpg

00:35:30 nubbins`: i didn't know you were a foodie

00:35:59 mike_c: do they give any justification for the version requirement?

00:36:39 mircea_popescu: who they ?

00:37:05 mike_c: this retarded australian

00:37:14 mike_c: and/or the phoundation.

00:37:55 mircea_popescu: dawg... you wanna see comedy look through the foudnation voting thing. what justification ?

00:37:58 nubbins`: 'cause there was totally a hard fork duod.

00:38:03 nubbins`: earlier than 0.8 won't work

00:38:04 nubbins`: duod

00:38:04 mircea_popescu: it's a wonder they find the fridge 5 times a week

00:38:40 nubbins`: because changing a config setting in a peripheral piece of software is a fork

00:38:45 nubbins`: (duod)

00:38:48 nubbins`: http://np.reddit.com/r/todayilearned/comments/307ihi/til_that_when_a_cockroach_touches_a_human_it_runs/cpq3jky?context=3

00:38:49 assbot: goosegoosegoosegoose comments on TIL that when a cockroach touches a human it runs to safety to clean itself ... ( http://bit.ly/1GoLqIc )

00:39:01 mike_c: ah, the great accident was around that version.

00:39:03 nubbins`: "My husband pushes me over to the sink and shoves my head under the faucet, trying to flush it out, but every millimeter of space in my ear is full of horrific cockroach. For some reason, he pulls my pajama top off. I still ask him why, but he doesn't know. Either he didn't want my shirt to get wet, or titties."

00:39:09 mod6: ok so what version of stage3 are people using from the mirror? 12.1, 12.0, 11.2... ?

00:39:26 mircea_popescu: nubbins` hey, changing the world right ? like that chick changing they into whey or w/e

00:39:44 mod6: jurov: lol, this is supposed be a "quick" setup and test. didn't think it'd be a three hour tour.

00:39:53 mike_c: so use the ami..

00:39:54 mod6: or have to hire a captain

00:40:04 mike_c: you'll be up in 5 mins.

00:40:41 mod6: yah ok. fts

00:41:16 nubbins`: hi marteen

00:41:23 marteen: hi nubbins` :)

00:41:31 nubbins`: qu'est-ce que c'est?

00:41:43 asciilifeform: nubbins`: i guess some folks don't own vacuum pumps ?

00:41:48 mike_c: mircea_popescu: life's too short to read the foundation forum. i flipped the bozo bit on them, no more research required :)

00:41:59 nubbins`: asciilifeform vacuum + ear?!

00:42:14 nubbins`: granted, her eardrum ended up getting shredded anyway.

00:42:14 asciilifeform: nubbins`: not whole ear!

00:42:20 asciilifeform: nubbins`: thin nozzle

00:42:22 nubbins`: ah

00:42:24 nubbins`: just roach ass

00:42:34 nubbins`: i'm sure they had at least a turkey baster

00:42:41 nubbins`: but, y'know. panic.

00:42:45 mircea_popescu: nubbins` that reddit is the most retarded shit i ever read.

00:43:00 nubbins`: mircea_popescu she'll have a series of novels out this year

00:43:03 *: mircea_popescu got bit by viper, chick in group sucked it out the next moment, me was fine.

00:43:44 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform exactly.

00:43:48 nubbins`: i've never been bitten by anything more exotic than fire ants

00:43:48 jurov: dunno if you can get any chich to suck out the bug

00:43:49 mircea_popescu: their mouths don't work.

00:43:52 jurov: *chick

00:43:58 mircea_popescu: jurov so the problem suddenly isn't the bug

00:44:09 asciilifeform: ^^^^

00:44:30 mircea_popescu: "i'll lick out his asshole but fuck take that bug away from me"

00:44:48 asciilifeform: the problem, if we continue with this valuable train of thought, - is almost never the bug, per se.

00:44:55 asciilifeform: it is always the available suction.

00:45:00 *: trinque got ass-bit by a brown recluse once, didn't bitch as much as the story

00:45:05 trinque: complete with dying flesh

00:45:17 mircea_popescu: notice that the idiots in question cost an emergency call, an er visit plus an emt visit later

00:45:32 mircea_popescu: plus drugs. hours out of the lives of a dozen + people, all supposedly skilled.

00:45:49 mircea_popescu: this is about as sustainable as a tower of liquid piss in the shape of roosevelt's wheelchair.

00:45:56 nubbins`: once, while on vacation, my mom got bitten on the face a couple times by some sort of spider

00:46:04 nubbins`: got all stiff etc

00:46:10 nubbins`: had to go to an AMERICAN HOSPITAL

00:47:21 mircea_popescu: nubbins`> i've never been bitten by anything more exotic than fire ants << for one thing fire ants are more exotic than vipers in carpathians. for the other, i would bet a lot more painful. poor snake's drastically overhyped

00:47:31 mircea_popescu: (so is scorpion, for that matter. most don't kill or anything)

00:47:36 nubbins`: it def didn't tickle

00:47:58 nubbins`: (on jungle walk. woman in front of me says "aah! ants!" then proceeds to try brushing them off WHERE SHE STOOD)

00:48:06 mircea_popescu: europe is particularly mild on this shit. you get stung by the tiny polen wasps that live ther,e it's like... mk.

00:48:08 trinque: they drained quite a bit of death out of my asscheek and thigh

00:48:18 mircea_popescu: get stung by nutso us wasp o may gawd...

00:48:25 trinque: I was drugged to hell, laughing about it

00:48:38 asciilifeform: what's in a wasp, anyway? formic acid ?

00:48:39 BingoBoingo: lol https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=524101.msg5932326#msg5932326

00:49:25 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform depends on the wasp, but not very well known really.

00:49:48 mircea_popescu: "apitoxin" is you know, one of those vinegars peterl analysed.

00:49:58 nubbins`: peptides+enzymes followed by norepinephrine followed by hyaluronidase and MCDP

00:50:38 mircea_popescu: some sort of quinone iirc.

00:50:41 asciilifeform: speaking of vinegars,

00:50:43 asciilifeform: the wine thing

00:50:46 nubbins`: that is to say, enzymes and more enzymes

00:51:01 asciilifeform: i think the 'wine experts' who don't get nailed by the food colouring experiment live in the same place as meta-nsa

00:51:29 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform you know this is something that you could pleasantly research ?

00:51:37 asciilifeform: (which is to say, the land of the i-can't-rule-it-out marvels)

00:51:44 mircea_popescu: there's no way they don't have that shit in dc, with all the dumb money floating about. take the girl out for a wine tasting show once

00:51:55 nubbins`: ^

00:52:08 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: this was famously and publicly done not long ago, but i've misplaced the link

00:52:16 nubbins`: wine tasting shows are hilarious

00:52:17 asciilifeform: that was actually why i remembered.

00:52:25 nubbins`: sommelier friend of mine has worked a few

00:52:26 mircea_popescu: i'm not going to go as far as to say "date a french somellier chick that can actually tell you what you ate after you squirt her palate"

00:53:04 asciilifeform: thing is, i'm not sure if we have 'the genuine article' sort of expert around here

00:53:18 asciilifeform: not sure if the test was ever attempted in a 'serious' wine country

00:53:53 mircea_popescu: so wiat, is your thesis that this doesn't exist ? or what ?

00:54:00 nubbins`: asciilifeform the genuine articles are few and far between

00:54:20 asciilifeform: my thesis is that i've not a clue.

00:54:21 asciilifeform: l0l

00:54:36 mircea_popescu: ah lol. so then my suggestion best avenue.

00:54:47 asciilifeform: 'It's all one node just with 600 addresses.' << ahahahaha.

00:54:52 *: asciilifeform picks self up from floor

00:54:54 nubbins`: asciilifeform there's 140 "master sommeliers" in usa

00:55:53 nubbins`: so maybe 25-50 legit

00:56:02 nubbins`: but... that aside,

00:56:40 asciilifeform: iirc works on wine

00:56:45 nubbins`: that's cool

00:56:49 BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> get stung by nutso us wasp o may gawd... << There's a burrowing and colonizing Vespid species endemic here. When they nest in the yard it is time for the serious chemicals. Eradicating a nest will scar that part of the yard for years.

00:56:49 asciilifeform: to the point of outputting how many days in cask of what wood

00:57:13 nubbins`: great for finding food pairs!

00:57:42 nubbins`: twodogland is generally free of nasty vermin

00:57:49 asciilifeform: i still suspect that 'cyranose' was disappeared not only because useful in homeland severity (tm)

00:57:58 nubbins`: no snakes, raccoons, skunks, venomous spiders...

00:57:59 asciilifeform: but because it readily exposes fraudulent 'food'

00:58:08 nubbins`: lel

00:58:09 asciilifeform: if programmed appropriately

00:58:12 nubbins`: scan a GMO apple

00:58:13 mircea_popescu: haha

00:58:19 asciilifeform: and could be manufactured for a few usd

00:58:28 mircea_popescu: so next nsa product ?

00:58:29 asciilifeform: (solid-state carboniferous sensor)

00:58:34 nubbins`: "this isn't olive oil!"

00:58:37 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: right after we can make even a z80 yes

00:58:52 mircea_popescu: ahak

00:59:13 *: asciilifeform refers 'gmo' enthusiasts to old thread

01:51:41 mod6: hmm. i suspect this could be an environment problem... but we'll see.

01:51:47 mod6: *local environment problem.

01:51:54 danielpbarron: yeah it probably is

01:52:00 mod6: na, ididn't have to do anything different for openssl.

03:55:50 mircea_popescu: cool, but meanwhoile the pellet seemed dudsy

03:56:44 danielpbarron: for future reference if the right unit comes up

03:56:50 nubbins`: i read it as pallet earlier. i can store pellets.

03:57:36 danielpbarron: at 2 USD per, that's still a great deal

03:57:43 danielpbarron: the blue unit is very nice too

03:57:43 asciilifeform: was.

03:58:33 nubbins`: wonder if "national liquidation" selling em on amazon would cut a deal

03:58:57 nubbins`: probably no huge incentive for them to

03:59:14 danielpbarron: not with the sudden surge of people buying "crates" of them

04:00:10 danielpbarron: wow that thing went for 400 ?? that's probably what it cost to ship them

04:01:00 danielpbarron: oh only 100 units, that's hardly a pallet

04:04:58 nubbins`: nope

04:05:06 nubbins`: those were open-box too

04:05:58 asciilifeform: were.

04:06:10 asciilifeform: srsly this is a mighty long thread about a dead'n'gone item

04:24:23 mircea_popescu: ahahaha

04:24:41 asciilifeform: after turdel/kernel is nailed down, i will post deterministic build for it

04:24:48 asciilifeform: starting with a particular checkout of 'buildroot'

04:24:52 asciilifeform: and buncha diffs

04:24:56 asciilifeform: same as i did for, well, the rest

04:24:57 nubbins`: rad, i'll be trying this

04:25:11 nubbins`: so this all fits in nand?

04:25:12 asciilifeform: the idea in my mind is to eventually have the whole shebang build from buildroot

04:25:28 asciilifeform: nubbins`: <5MB total

04:25:33 *: nubbins` claps

04:25:38 asciilifeform: nubbins`: this is kernel and all userland

04:25:45 nubbins`: amazing

04:25:45 assbot: AMAZING COMPANY!

04:25:45 asciilifeform: obviously no bitcoind in there, yet

04:25:54 asciilifeform: nothing esp. astonishing here

04:25:55 nubbins`: step at a time

04:26:02 asciilifeform: this is about how big a non-developer's linux ought to be

04:26:29 danielpbarron: Welcome to Buildroot

04:26:29 danielpbarron: buildroot login: root

04:26:29 danielpbarron: #

04:26:37 asciilifeform: try dmesg

04:26:38 asciilifeform: and top

04:26:39 asciilifeform: etc.

04:26:54 danielpbarron: neato

04:26:55 asciilifeform: most of the comforts of home, are there.

04:27:52 asciilifeform: i'ma leave it running overnight

04:28:08 danielpbarron: i can do that too if it helps

04:28:09 mod6: cool!

04:28:10 asciilifeform: in case there are other clock surprises

04:28:19 danielpbarron: i should unplug the serial connector though right?

04:28:22 asciilifeform: why?

04:28:28 danielpbarron: you said it overheats?

04:28:33 asciilifeform: wai wat ?!!

04:28:37 mod6: danielpbarron: and yah, im pulling blocks, need -nodnsseed though

04:28:41 asciilifeform: never said any such thing

04:28:48 asciilifeform: if heatsink is removed - yes, overheats

04:28:51 asciilifeform: but why remove it

04:29:02 asciilifeform: my serial cable goes right through the closed case

04:29:06 asciilifeform: i didn't even drill the latter

04:29:10 asciilifeform: just sorta crushed it in there

04:29:27 danielpbarron: ohh

04:29:31 danielpbarron: you meant the pogo board

04:29:32 mod6: ok im gonna shutdown this aws instance.

04:29:46 danielpbarron: yeah i reclosed my unit

04:29:46 asciilifeform: danielpbarron: feel free to screw the box shut

04:29:47 asciilifeform: aha

04:30:00 asciilifeform: so no reason to unplug the serial cable, ever

04:30:15 asciilifeform: i have no idea how anyone could have gotten the notion that this causes overheating

04:31:11 danielpbarron: overheating of the serial adapter, not the pogo

04:31:18 danielpbarron: but clearly i misunderstood you

04:31:19 asciilifeform: wat?!?!!

04:31:38 asciilifeform: can't even imagine how chinese that adapter would have to be

04:31:42 asciilifeform: to ever begin to overheat

04:31:56 danielpbarron: !b 5

04:31:57 assbot: Last 5 lines bashed and pending review. ( http://dpaste.com/1TKX3SN.txt )

04:32:48 danielpbarron: just had this show up:

04:32:52 danielpbarron: # random: nonblocking pool is initialized

04:32:54 nubbins`: heh.

04:33:15 asciilifeform: danielpbarron: i must remind you - and everyone else here - that pogo has no rng.

04:33:17 asciilifeform: none at all

04:33:21 asciilifeform: not even a very bad one.

04:33:23 nubbins`: ok, sorry, this turdel, what am i doing with it once gunzipped?

04:33:34 asciilifeform: nubbins`: it's a kernel

04:33:41 asciilifeform: you can boot a pogo with it

04:33:49 danielpbarron: can it be used with net console?

04:34:14 asciilifeform: doesn't dhcp by default, so no

04:35:07 asciilifeform: i just tested the nic

04:35:08 danielpbarron: i don't think mine does dhcp and still works

04:35:13 asciilifeform: nic works

04:35:21 asciilifeform: danielpbarron: odd

04:35:30 danielpbarron: i don't mean now that it's booted

04:35:34 danielpbarron: imean in uboot

04:35:41 asciilifeform: i didn't change the uboot

04:35:43 danielpbarron: setenv serverip 192...

04:35:43 asciilifeform: dear glub

04:35:52 danielpbarron: yeah i know, i mean whatever thing i put on it

04:35:53 asciilifeform: uboot is in a separate nand partition

04:35:59 asciilifeform: i didn't touch it

04:36:15 asciilifeform: what i put up just now as turdel-with-rootfs is just a kernel

04:36:22 asciilifeform: i don't even flash these in, booting from lan

04:36:29 danielpbarron: same

04:36:30 asciilifeform: or probably would've worn out my nand already

04:36:41 danielpbarron: i mean that i had previously flashed in a different uboot

04:36:49 asciilifeform: and booting arch every time i do a build would be retarded

04:36:50 danielpbarron: one that lets me set a serverip

04:36:55 asciilifeform: ah

04:37:03 asciilifeform: but that normally doesn't get you past the kernel jump-in

04:37:07 danielpbarron: as it boots it says "so and so is alive'

04:37:16 asciilifeform: after that it goes straight out ttyS0

04:38:07 asciilifeform: so danielpbarron's 'works' does not mean logging in through netconsole ?

04:38:10 asciilifeform: as in, to the shell

04:38:30 danielpbarron: i have not tried with the thing you just made

04:38:35 asciilifeform: aha

04:38:37 asciilifeform: ok more logical

04:38:41 asciilifeform: don't expect that to work

04:38:55 asciilifeform: this turdel is strictly for folks with serial ports

04:39:41 asciilifeform: barring any other peculiar surprises, we have a linux kernel that builds for pogo, and runs there

04:39:48 asciilifeform: and an elementary userland to go with it

04:39:57 asciilifeform: ('busybox'-based)

04:40:18 asciilifeform: weights slightly under 5MB but can be cut a bit

04:40:23 asciilifeform: *weighs

04:40:39 danielpbarron: trying now

04:40:58 danielpbarron: oh i see what you mean

04:41:06 danielpbarron: i remember why this didn't work with the netbsd one

04:41:41 danielpbarron: what is the point of netcat then?

04:41:45 asciilifeform: which 'this'

04:42:31 asciilifeform: danielpbarron: the point of the console-over-netcat was strictly to be able to screw with u-boot (adjust boot device, etc.) without having the serial port

04:43:01 danielpbarron: ah

04:43:12 danielpbarron: ok nevermind, nubbins` learn to solder

04:43:34 asciilifeform: this won't be an issue for much longer

04:44:06 asciilifeform: i'ma fix it so it grabs a dhcp addr. tomorrow.

04:44:33 danielpbarron: i feel a lot more confident to write documentation on that now

04:44:38 asciilifeform: btw this is not what the proper kernel will look like

04:44:43 danielpbarron: i was really confused about netcat to be honest

04:44:46 asciilifeform: because linux supports the nand just fine

04:44:54 asciilifeform: and there is no reason to clutter up the precious ram

04:44:57 asciilifeform: with crap

04:45:12 asciilifeform: userland (incl. bitcoind) will live in nand

04:45:31 asciilifeform: right now they're stuffed in the kernel proper

04:46:04 asciilifeform: when all of this makes sense - i'll post the diff.

04:46:10 danielpbarron: well i'll also leave mine on overnight

04:46:26 danielpbarron: oh btw, what color is the light on yours?

04:46:31 asciilifeform: yellow

04:46:51 danielpbarron: i was gonna call it orange

04:46:54 asciilifeform: this simply means the bicolor is on

04:46:57 asciilifeform: as in, both bits set

04:46:59 danielpbarron: yeah

04:47:04 danielpbarron: it's not green and not red

04:47:24 asciilifeform: laugh, but this also must be fixed

04:47:37 asciilifeform: it'll be most people's only interface to their nodes...

04:47:47 danielpbarron: my arch pogos have working lights

04:47:59 danielpbarron: they are green 24/7

04:48:01 danielpbarron: lol

04:48:18 asciilifeform: danielpbarron: do you remember how to toggle them ?

04:48:23 danielpbarron: no

04:48:40 danielpbarron: i think it's in the debian instructions nubbins` found

04:49:10 danielpbarron: #set archNumber and machid (for LED)

04:49:11 danielpbarron: /tmp/fw_setenv arcNumber 3960

04:49:11 danielpbarron: /tmp/fw_setenv machid F78

04:50:19 asciilifeform: ^ this doesn't do anything unless your kernel looks for these numbers

12:45:15 jurov: why is everyone so utterly secretive?

12:45:31 mike_c: it's not secretive, it's just, why shout it?

12:47:03 mike_c: also, the 'announcement' was recent and the slide started some time ago. my guess is it has more to do with the drop in revenue than anything else, but mp and I have argued that before :)

12:48:16 jurov: i know, being half serious.. but really, i remember from s.dice times half of the chan bragging(or mourning) about trades they did

12:48:34 jurov: i don't remember any such thing for a long time recentyl

12:49:06 mike_c: heh, yeah. but that said more about s.dice than anything else

12:49:21 mike_c: people didn't brag/mourn about options trades either, and those were brutal

12:52:00 jurov: ^ large part of this was me, buying for upcoming divs

12:52:21 mike_c: ^ 1% of bitbet has turned over in the last month. that seems "right" to me. s.mg is untradeable because it has so much coin.

12:52:39 davout: mike_c: howso?

12:53:00 mike_c: how do you trade in a company with no revenue and 10k bitcoin on the books?

12:53:33 davout: i'd naively say you'd base a valuation on the cash assets?

12:53:47 mike_c: heh, well, it's currently trading below book value

12:54:20 mike_c: but, point being, these stocks are generally held by serious investors and aren't going to have huge turnover.

12:54:27 davout: i see

12:54:53 mike_c: so without the options, where does mpex get revenue? it's an issue, and one that may be being reflected now in the stock price

12:56:27 mike_c: of course, the options exchange was hardly closed without reason (including some that remained unspoken), so it's tough to bring it back.

12:59:38 mike_c: davout: re s.mg. I think the problem there is that it is speculative whether they will be able to generate enough revenue to move the needle on the share price. so you might have your capital frozen in a stock that is basically valued as a pile of cash.

13:00:07 mike_c: which is why some people who would rather have the cash themselves are willing to dump it at 90% of book value.

13:00:49 mike_c: and I think it's too bad because it's an exciting company. if they're never going to spend the money, maybe just special dividend it back to the shareholders.

13:02:02 jurov: they will find a way to circulate them into ingame economy, that is not so big problem

13:02:41 mike_c: people have to pay to play, what do they need seed money for the game for?

13:04:10 jurov: not a q for me

13:06:38 jurov: i should not have vented here, perhaps am just disillusioned how shabbily it works, deposits, dividends

13:07:21 mike_c: around the edges it is rough, but the important parts are rock solid.

13:08:10 jurov: i fucked too intimately with said parts to put myself behind such statement

13:08:32 mike_c: you think the trading engine isn't solid? or security?

13:09:42 jurov: security is good. but i won't repeat myself about the other stuff

13:11:35 mike_c: i've heard you talk about stuff like 'eventually consistent' and the statements missing some useful tracking features.

13:11:55 mike_c: but i've never heard about problems like 'my bid didn't match the best offer'

13:12:17 mike_c: except one time where something got fucked with a proxy i think :)

13:12:28 mike_c: but once in x years isn't bad

13:12:40 jurov: yes, if that's all you expect from an exchange...

13:14:50 mike_c: let the brokers deal with them :)

13:27:53 jurov: deposits/withdrawals/pushes aren't shown in stat

13:28:00 mike_c: ah, right

13:28:17 jurov: and there were misc options.futures expirations

13:28:39 mike_c: yes, that was suboptimal :)

13:28:47 mike_c: but actually i thought we got that fixed

13:29:27 jurov: except for x.eur balances vanishing in the middle of month (at least it's at known time) and reappearing any time later

13:31:26 jurov: and dunno if you remember, there were daily interest payments in the beginning. without stat mention and at random times

13:32:04 mike_c: this is part of the reason though too. products come and go, with different features.

13:32:51 mike_c: x.eur hasn't been around that long. if it sticks around long enough, i'm sure it will work better.

13:33:15 jurov: what reason?

13:33:36 mike_c: part of the reason there are rough edges is that there are a lot of different products on mpex

13:33:47 mike_c: with differing needs

13:34:54 mike_c: path 1: engineer each product perfectly and ship 20 months late (sorry s.nsa). path 2: push it out, make sure it works as advertised, if it gets popular and sticks around, smooth out rough edges.

13:37:15 jurov: well, if mpex isn't now structurally able to issue information like "BalanceChange":[{"Date:": "blabla","MPSIC": "X.EUR", "Change": "-100", "Reason" :"Future expiration"}]

15:02:27 asciilifeform: ity. The central role of the US judge-lawyer mafia, is the reason over 1 million Americans have become lawyers in what is the developed world's most abusive, corrupt legal system. Though many American lawyers are now unemployed or low-income, they often became lawyers in the first place, because they hoped for at least a junior role in the US courtroom mafia, with a licence to steal the wealth of others.'

15:56:34 nubbins`: ok, reply sent. let's see where this goes.

15:56:37 Vexual: dont they tho

16:00:41 nubbins`: "But Wi-Fi hotspots can't deliver wireless connection speeds any faster than the incoming wired connection from your cable or other ISP (Internet service provider); top theoretical AC router speeds are only available in a direct computer-to-computer wireless connections, which you'll never do."

16:00:45 nubbins`: so much fail

16:01:00 nubbins`: you're right, i'd never want to transfer data within my network

16:01:21 asciilifeform: nubbins`: whatever it was, was probably referring to 'ad hoc mode'

16:01:23 Vexual: the bettong with the scroll on its ankle is the bottleneck here

16:01:48 asciilifeform: nubbins`: you use ad-hoc mode often ?

16:02:06 nubbins`: in fact, i don't, but i kinda think that's not what the guy meant to say

16:02:17 asciilifeform: what even was this

16:02:18 nubbins`: who cares what the router speed is if you're going ad-hoc?

16:02:30 nubbins`: just some random huffpo article about how yr router is lying to you

16:02:39 nubbins`: because the pipe coming into your house is slower

16:02:48 nubbins`: (o.O)

16:02:57 Vexual: not in japan its not

16:03:10 asciilifeform: not here, either

16:03:17 Vexual: they have optic fibre to the eyeball

16:03:46 Vexual: yeah but youd have it anyway ascii

16:04:16 asciilifeform: i have a few wifi devices. the radio is definitely the bottleneck.

16:04:57 Vexual: nubbins shoos bears off his wifi'

16:05:30 nubbins`: i think this was written for USians with slow pipes

16:05:40 nubbins`: fiber to the door here, i dare the wifi to keep up

16:07:36 thestringpuller: wifi is for people who don't like living in a house akin to Kowloon Walled City

16:14:42 asciilifeform: 'As they say, 'you cannot make these things up', the Americans are so ridiculously obvious as they conduct criminal deceptions. The CIA's 'Watergate' scheme to destroy Richard Nixon 40 years ago, was so successfully with the fake 'brave reporter' Woodward, that the CIA even decided to use Woodward's junior partner as a fake 'brave reporter' along with Greenwald in 'Operation Fake Dissident Snowden'.'

17:18:28 asciilifeform: 'Assange and Snowden are cold or actively insulting and hostile to real dissidents. For example, Assange grossly insults anyone who does not believe the absurd US gov story about 11 Sep 2001 - which no serious person believes. Assange insults the thousands of architects, engineers, US military and intelligence veterans, who continually describe how the 'official story' is a fraud. '

17:20:16 nubbins`: "I am a Harvard classmate of top US leaders" the wankery is strong with this one

17:20:28 asciilifeform: nubbins`: i don't give a damn if he claims to be a martian

17:20:36 asciilifeform: the story, to the extent it can be checked out, checks out.

17:20:44 nubbins`: how about if he claims to be a martian in every communique? 8)

17:20:50 asciilifeform: and fits the known facts more tightly than anything else i've encountered

17:21:02 asciilifeform: that is, why not a single one of the 'leaks' actually damaged any tangible lizard interest

17:21:28 asciilifeform: recall that the nsa devices catalogue was -not- a snowden leak

17:21:33 asciilifeform: but came from the other fella

17:21:38 asciilifeform: now (almost certainly) dead

17:21:56 asciilifeform: it shuffled in and was permitted to spread, to lend credibility to the rest of the pile.

17:22:12 nubbins`: yfw 0.5.3 has a hidden backdoor and both satoshi and mp are complicit!

17:22:36 asciilifeform: nubbins`: that's your 'incredulity immune system' healthily working

17:23:01 nubbins`: and me without a general checkup in years

17:23:52 nubbins`: anyway, you're correct in that nothing leaked was particularly damaging to the lizards

17:24:06 nubbins`: which in itself is mildly curious

17:24:19 asciilifeform: and that details of -specific- compromises, clearly apparent from context in some of the docs, were scrubbed

17:24:54 nubbins`: i bet assange is such a fucking dirtbag

17:25:04 nubbins`: he probably eats potato chips for breakfast

17:25:05 asciilifeform: sachs also lists names, times, places of folks 'suicided' by usg, with reasons.

17:25:12 asciilifeform: no one has, afaik, seen it fit to refute any of it.

17:26:19 asciilifeform: at any rate, i'll summarize for the impatient. according to sachs, snowden heap was lifted. but under cia (his original and actual employer) direction. and then carefully selected.

17:27:09 asciilifeform: mainly to create a usg-controlled 'muppet hero' who will lead actual leakers to their deaths

17:27:26 asciilifeform: but also to drum up a feeling of 'everyone is surveilled'

17:27:52 asciilifeform: sachs does -not- mention it, but the folks in #b-a know well, that it also created a vast and thriving market of faux 'security' paraphernalia.

17:27:53 nubbins`: i wonder how many btc people sent snowden

17:28:04 asciilifeform: ('redphone', 'blackphone', and 1001 other pieces of rubbish)

17:28:12 nubbins`: ah, blackphone, i recall

17:28:18 nubbins`: turns out it was in fact clearphone?

17:28:27 asciilifeform: long ago proven fact.

17:28:30 nubbins`: rite

18:41:33 asciilifeform: again he can be a martian if he wants

18:42:29 nubbins`: (what's up with the CV as a footnote?)

18:42:36 asciilifeform: nubbins`: there are far more tedious and less apparently factual 'seekers' who get considerably more attention

18:42:44 asciilifeform: and sachs gives testable hypotheses

18:42:48 nubbins`: granted

18:43:02 asciilifeform: which is why i don't give a damn what he is

18:43:11 asciilifeform: the most testable hypothesis is that google systematically blackholes him

18:43:17 asciilifeform: this is testable right from where you're sitting.

18:54:34 nubbins`: here's a snippet

18:54:41 nubbins`: Cornwell quickly denounces the "dirty Jews", the "filthy Jews". Indeed, attacking Jews is a real passion for the neo-Nazi Cornwell, while at the same time engaging in the 'Pleasures of Adolf Eichmann', Cornwell's hiring of dishonest Jews to do dirty jobs for her, a 'pet Jew' whom Cornwell can dominate.

18:58:25 asciilifeform: snowden (or whatever bourbaki is responsible for writing his public-facing garbage) insulted the intelligence of the entire planet a thousand times

18:58:29 asciilifeform: and somehow it all washed.

18:59:17 asciilifeform: and the multicoloured 'phones'

18:59:18 asciilifeform: etc.

19:00:10 nubbins`: Cornwell's lawyers know this, that attacking and murdering Jews is Cornwell's ultimate fetish and fantasy, to herself become a lesbian Adolf Hitler. Cornwell's longtime lawyers Shumadine and Rudell, mentioned above, took advantage of this back in 2000, when they threatened someone of Jewish heritage with a Jew-baiting extortion letter.

19:05:20 asciilifeform: punkman: hence no stealth in the analysis

19:05:26 nubbins`: full of hyperbole and exaggeration

19:05:58 nubbins`: the only difference between this guy and a "SHTF" type prepper is the style of the gibberish

19:06:12 asciilifeform: nubbins`: my hypothesis is that this kind of thing is -caused by- rather than -a cause of- the futility of 'shouting in the wilderness'

19:06:39 asciilifeform: nubbins`: the pertinent difference is the testability of the claims and how perfectly they square, imho, with the publicly-available facts.

19:06:45 asciilifeform: none of the other shit ultimately matters.

19:06:51 nubbins`: mine is that it's a piece of breat with nut butter on both sides

19:07:19 nubbins`: but again. i'm not evaluating his claims (how can i? 100% not reading any more), just the way in which he presents himself and his theories

19:07:38 nubbins`: these rambling essays to me are like rounded corners to mp

19:08:03 asciilifeform: nubbins`: the actual facts about usg are sufficiently monstrous that they will trigger -any- reasonable person's immune system the way they triggered yours, if encountered raw in one gigantic torrent

22:44:16 mircea_popescu: first, trying to attack bitcoin with the nonsensical "oh, nothing notable except blockchain technologee"

22:44:32 mircea_popescu: then, once that worked as well as you'd expect, moving on to "oh, nothing notable, many things just like it" ?

22:44:39 mircea_popescu: who comes up with these strats i wonder.

22:44:58 mircea_popescu: alf's lizard hitler seems pretty similar to the original hitler cca 1944.

22:45:07 mircea_popescu: "das war ein befehl!"

22:46:25 mircea_popescu: "Ihr Saurianitet, nichts bedeutet..."

23:06:36 jurov: sorry, i just had some slanderous moments

23:08:00 jurov: feeling better now. and later today i got an email someone wants to haul considerable amount of stuff from havelol to coinbr.

23:15:20 mircea_popescu: the only thing is, i do not believe the degradation of google's model from algorithmic to "algorithmic" to "whatever, we'll just do it by hand" is in any sense cia's work.

23:15:24 mircea_popescu: it's just simple thermodynamics.

23:15:38 mircea_popescu: note the exact same fate of the only similar thing to date : imperial chinese examination.

23:15:51 mircea_popescu: also, originally, an attempt to resolve the "find sites" problem by iteration over the graph.

23:16:20 mircea_popescu: a while later (about the same while later) it was exactly the same thing : "wikipedia at top of all search results because wikipedia at top of all search results".

23:17:06 mircea_popescu: that guardian is an intel asset, and greenwald in particular just gavin in a different color scheme is again uncontroversial.

23:20:56 asciilifeform: prefab ?

23:21:03 mircea_popescu: yes. as in not made of wood.

23:21:07 asciilifeform: ah meant pressboard

23:21:10 mircea_popescu: right

23:21:19 asciilifeform: solid pressboard.

23:21:32 mircea_popescu: well then if it's the whole set maybe not a good set.

23:21:37 asciilifeform: where in usa, outside of antique shop, do you find anything else.

23:21:43 mircea_popescu: in the houses of thinking people.

23:21:51 asciilifeform: in the houses of elderly.

23:22:00 asciilifeform: (of thinking and other kinds)

23:22:01 mircea_popescu: thinking people are rarely under 30.

23:22:06 asciilifeform: try 80

23:22:22 mircea_popescu: not my fault puritans tend to spawn late bloomers.

23:22:22 *: asciilifeform owns some furniture of actual wood, university surplus

23:22:33 *: asciilifeform and of steel

23:23:06 *: mircea_popescu will underscore there's nothing wrong with cheap ikea stuff. what was at stake above was the expectation that a sample with weird homologies may be representative for "the world"

23:23:24 *: asciilifeform makes no claim of 'the world' except as 'world he is able to access'

23:23:36 mircea_popescu: ie, if "all the women you've talked to" spit, and also are not wearing skirts, maybe sample is no good.

23:23:42 mircea_popescu: rather than "women spit"

23:26:00 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: usg appears to have a very strict 'do not engage mircea_popescu on open terrain' rule

23:26:25 mircea_popescu: chomsky actually said that the joe stack grievances are legitimate, and will take over if not tackled.

23:26:29 mircea_popescu: just... none of this is controversial.

23:26:49 asciilifeform: makes specific claims re: who/why of snowden, for instance

23:26:50 mircea_popescu: i mean, sure, it's not watercooler conversation, among 10-20 an hour derps.

23:26:52 mircea_popescu: why would it be ?

23:26:56 asciilifeform: these are 'noncontroversial' ?

23:27:06 mircea_popescu: i thought those were the nutteries we were digging aside.

23:27:39 asciilifeform: unrelated: if we can get bitcoind under 27M, whole orchestra fits into the 32M eeprom found in the 'tripmate'

23:29:15 asciilifeform: costs approx. same as pogo, for much poorer specs

23:29:18 asciilifeform: but actively produced

23:29:27 asciilifeform: and there are at least 3 chinese clones, roughly similar.

23:29:51 asciilifeform: 100M/s ethernet, usb2 for storage, powered by yet another usb jack

23:29:55 mircea_popescu: yeah, it's a step in the right direction

23:30:02 asciilifeform: wireless soldered in though

23:30:04 asciilifeform: and can't be killed

23:30:11 asciilifeform: (part of cpu)

23:30:23 mircea_popescu: not sure this is a drawback.

23:30:27 asciilifeform: it was the single cheapest such box that i was able to locate

23:30:30 mircea_popescu: write your own wireless driver.

23:30:36 asciilifeform: if we must have the radio, let's ad-hoc to neighbors

23:30:37 asciilifeform: aha

23:32:29 asciilifeform: nubbins`: it ought to run from anywhere

23:32:32 nubbins`: nod

23:32:36 asciilifeform: nubbins`: because has baked in rootfs

23:32:39 *: nubbins` has one unbricked pogo left

23:32:43 asciilifeform: this is why i built it that way

23:32:50 asciilifeform: (this is -not- what we want in the field ver.)
