Transcript for 27-03-2015, 2291 lines:

00:00:24 mircea_popescu: back to the usg-tb thing : people like a congressman or an ex ciadirector are very poor examples, because a key part of the cure is maintaining very hard counter-terrorism measures on the ground. no colby, owens, petreus etc ever said "you will have to shoot me, and expect to fail unless you bring armored units, and to lose a score of operatives in any case."

00:00:35 asciilifeform: and they will have every living thing that reads reddit convinced that they invented it, too.

00:01:04 mod6: <+mircea_popescu> mod6 ben_vulpes think a <27mb bitcoin could be ? << the current statically linked bitcoind is 5.6mb is that what you mean?

00:01:27 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform they will, to ~their detriment~. i'm not sure this is getting through, or that im doing a good job of explaining it, but in fact such victories are more expensive than the respective defeats they supposedly keep one from.

00:01:35 mircea_popescu: mod6 that's what i mean.

00:01:48 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i must confess that it is rather unclear to me where the detriment is coming from.

00:02:04 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform ok, prepare for a lengthy explanation then.

00:02:04 asciilifeform: if tomorrow a white van picks up the remaining 5000 (?) pogos, how do 'we win' ?

00:02:08 *: asciilifeform prepared

00:02:14 mircea_popescu: suppose you are in a room, with women. there's 100 of them.

00:02:50 mircea_popescu: they're all naked and dripping. suppose that someone for whatever stupid reason does not want you to fuck, because they imagine this is how you don't get to kill them.

00:03:05 mircea_popescu: now, the reason this is stupid, on multiple planes, we won't dsiscuss here, for space.

00:03:29 mircea_popescu: BUT! if the solution they come up with is to make an artefact which convinces 99% of the women sorted by stupidity that they shouldn't fuck you,

00:03:42 mircea_popescu: while also providing sufficient proof for 1% that in fact someone's trying to interfere

00:03:50 mircea_popescu: this artefact is actually your best bet.

00:03:58 mircea_popescu: that make sense ?

00:04:05 asciilifeform: it almost begins to

00:04:19 mod6: huh, the statically linked binary is between 5.6 and 5.2mb. On my x86_64 builds it was often around 5.6mb. i just pulled up my paste from the debian x86_32 bit build (http://dpaste.com/1YQR1W7), here's 5.2mb. and yesterday on gentoo x86_32 it was 5.6mb.

00:04:22 mircea_popescu: so, filling reddit with apparently correct but actually provably falsifiable nonsense is not something that concerns me.

00:04:24 asciilifeform: but as i understand, it resolves to 'they have lost the mandate of heaven, will be defeated eventually'

00:04:24 mircea_popescu: it HELPS me.

00:04:32 mircea_popescu: one direction, yes.

00:04:44 mircea_popescu: the other direction being that you DO NOT WISH the attenntion of most of those women.

00:04:46 mircea_popescu: some smell bad.

00:04:47 mircea_popescu: some are ugly.

00:04:56 mircea_popescu: NOT having to turn them down personally is empowering for you.

00:04:57 asciilifeform: the nonsense on reddit does nothing - granted

00:05:01 asciilifeform: but let's address the van.

00:05:06 mircea_popescu: imagine a device that kept paul atreides from having to fight all the idiot freemen.

00:05:09 mircea_popescu: WORTH GOLD

00:05:12 asciilifeform: l0l

00:05:25 mircea_popescu: and there's more directions.

00:05:38 mircea_popescu: as to van : people like a congressman or an ex ciadirector are very poor examples, because a key part of the cure is maintaining very hard counter-terrorism measures on the ground. no colby, owens, petreus etc ever said "you will have to shoot me, and expect to fail unless you bring armored units, and to lose a score of operatives in any case."

00:05:52 asciilifeform: say van picks'em up. this gives us no useful 'smoking gun' beyond 'sorry chaps, they all sold out last night. no, can't tell ya who bought'

00:06:08 mircea_popescu: people who go "sure, whatever. make sure you have good AP and check the vests" are not the target of this sort of bs.

00:07:20 mircea_popescu: the weird thing about the situaiton of usg particularly, and of usg-likes (ie, most cancer) is that "everything is only intended to be used in the situations it wasn't designed to be used".

00:07:34 mircea_popescu: air superiority not useful in air engagement, but in political engagement sort of bs.

00:07:50 mircea_popescu: if air superiority comes to air engagement, walks away with so many broken arms it's not worth thinking about.

00:08:36 mircea_popescu: this is why all the ridiculous military failures of the us since vietnam : it built an army which is only useful as an army if NOT fighting.

00:08:55 asciilifeform: it is also, apparently, quite useful for rocketing unarmed men in their sleep

00:09:08 asciilifeform: and occupation of own cities (see boston)

00:09:19 asciilifeform: and many other interesting things which have yet to be demoed

00:09:29 mircea_popescu: sorta like a parade army. exactly what the italians had, right before the risorgimento.

00:09:44 mircea_popescu: right, but none of which are what an army is actually for.

00:09:54 mircea_popescu: the us army makes excellent police and screwdrivers. bully for it.

00:10:13 asciilifeform: the equipment (and selected men) steadily gets transfered to police (soon to be unified gendarmerie) forces

00:10:27 asciilifeform: who are actually trained for the kind of thing that it's all ultimately for

00:10:29 mircea_popescu: if your crazy genius lab consisted of shitty hot tweezers that made good sandwiches and very bad vacuum pumps that sang a capella i'd think you're uniquely ineffectual.

00:10:30 asciilifeform: see BingoBoingo's link

00:11:31 mircea_popescu: and if THAT were your lab, i wouldn't particularly be persuaded by "no tb cure could exist" type of arguments.

00:11:52 mircea_popescu: because what, if it did exist you'd lunge at it with your waffle making hot tweezers ?

00:12:03 asciilifeform: so, running with this line of thought, what might we expect 'the cure' to look like?

00:12:29 mircea_popescu: this, incidentally, is ALSO not controversial - virtually half of all material prepared by the bureaucracy states in one form or another that they're "not prepared for this type of challenge"

00:12:38 mircea_popescu: it's true : they haven't yet made a thing for something else to use for this.

00:13:13 mircea_popescu: the cure looks very much like you'd imagine : strong encryption, strong (mental especially) discipline, minimal fortification along the riverline.

00:14:20 mircea_popescu: as long as it's clear to the da that a court showdown will end his career, you're practically unprosecutable, no matter what you do. as long as it's clear to "special ops" that there will be deaths, you're un-opable, no matter what you do. etc etc.

00:14:34 mircea_popescu: the entire construction has very speciffic dead points, and they're anything but secret.

00:15:35 mircea_popescu: swedish military doctrine, notably, is constructed around the core concept that they do not aim to defend the country, they aim to make invasion economically unfeasible. that is all.

00:16:01 asciilifeform: as long as it's clear to "special ops" that there will be deaths << this is possible if living in a bunker

00:16:09 mircea_popescu: this does not work against ideologically motivated adversaries, but it works against bureaucracies something splendid. there's always another fire to put out.

00:16:18 asciilifeform: if ambling about the terrain going to/from day jobs, etc. - they just quietly pick you up

00:16:26 asciilifeform: what is one to do, wear trotyl vest ?

00:16:27 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform no, this is possible if maintaining decent op security.

00:16:40 mircea_popescu: yes, if you must do that, wear vest might work.

00:17:13 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: make invasion economically unfeasible << you may be thinking of the swiss

00:17:19 mircea_popescu: but for as long as the "how do they know it's not really an ambush ?" question has an obvious and correct answer, you already failed.

00:17:35 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform afaik swiss defend themselves by "neutrality"

00:17:49 asciilifeform: not exactly.

00:18:15 mircea_popescu: they installed a bunch of autobatteries and shitnow ? /me's not been keeping up.

00:18:26 asciilifeform: spent quite a bit during cold war

00:18:29 asciilifeform: not sure about now

00:18:33 asciilifeform: and trained decently.

00:20:56 mircea_popescu: <asciilifeform> if ambling about the terrain going to/from day jobs, etc. - they just quietly pick you up << a ro guy famously caught a coupla "secret agents" tailing him in traffic, beat them up (romanian tradition) took them to police station.

00:21:01 mircea_popescu: huge scandal ensued.

00:21:23 asciilifeform: http://cs.brown.edu/~sk/Personal/Books/McPhee-Place-Concorde-Suisse << book

00:21:30 asciilifeform: on .ch army org

00:21:33 asciilifeform: ^ pretty good

00:21:58 mircea_popescu: cost teh ro govt millions to try and wash it up, eventually was more or less forgotten. but finding agents willing to tail that guy was difficult for years after.

00:22:04 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: that'd work about as well here as it would in peak nazi de

00:22:11 mircea_popescu: it would work splendidly.

00:22:16 asciilifeform: they'd demolish the street where you stood.

00:22:18 mircea_popescu: good.

00:22:24 mircea_popescu: there's going to be a demolished street bearing your name.

00:22:26 asciilifeform: we in fact saw this play out

00:22:28 asciilifeform: in boston

00:22:36 mircea_popescu: exactly.

00:22:41 asciilifeform: and what result ?

00:22:55 mircea_popescu: major losses for teh usg.

00:23:01 asciilifeform: i dun see it.

00:23:07 mircea_popescu: maybe our optics differ.

00:23:13 asciilifeform: they evidently must

00:23:34 mircea_popescu: maybe it's because you're trying to use some sort of subjective scoring it occurs to me

00:23:46 mircea_popescu: ie, "what the participant thinks happens matters".

00:23:52 asciilifeform: not exactly

00:23:59 mircea_popescu: so in this sense, a junkie managing to score a hit is in fact +ev.

00:24:05 mircea_popescu: he will act as if he is, yes. but... he's not.

00:24:13 asciilifeform: say i'm a generic schmuck living in berlin in march, this day in '43

00:24:16 trinque: isn't the demolished street only helpful if there are onlookers who care?

00:24:22 asciilifeform: it looks mostly normal

00:24:26 mircea_popescu: trinque no. the street was in fact demolished.

00:24:27 asciilifeform: but stalingrad happened

00:24:30 asciilifeform: show me the stalingrad

00:24:36 trinque: mircea_popescu: right, but I recall joe stack day

00:24:46 trinque: and the ratio of people reacting sanely to not

00:24:47 mircea_popescu: trinque good for you. not particularly relevant to him.

00:24:52 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i dun follow.

00:24:59 trinque: maybe the ratio's irrelevant

00:25:03 asciilifeform: where are the -real- cracks in the reich

00:25:10 mircea_popescu: they had to demolish a street ?

00:25:43 asciilifeform: and what, they are to go broke from paving a street?

00:25:44 mircea_popescu: i can trivially send pizza to the "secret" subsecretary of state for whatever, and he's stuck wondering how i know ?

00:25:49 mircea_popescu: yes, actually.

00:26:21 asciilifeform: the damage from tsarnavev & tsarnaev was roughly comparable to a small 'pile up' wreck on the highway.

00:26:25 asciilifeform: not even rounding error.

00:26:26 mircea_popescu: there is no undertaking more expensive than that pavement job.

00:26:48 asciilifeform: so perhaps 'demolished a street' is exaggerated

00:26:58 mircea_popescu: i disagree.

00:27:29 mircea_popescu: let's take the cheapest way out. familiar wit hthe guy whose name history has lost (:P) that set fire to the whatever so his name may be remembered ?

00:27:39 asciilifeform: herostratus aha

00:27:45 asciilifeform: that worked once.

00:27:48 asciilifeform: (exactly once)

00:27:55 mircea_popescu: familiar with the (afaik also uncontroversial) theory that the us is a nation of narcisists ?

00:28:01 asciilifeform: aha

00:28:13 mircea_popescu: does it seem to you a reasonable plan to demolish streets in this atmosphere ?

00:28:30 asciilifeform: sure, when you're working with -cowardly- and -imbecilic- narcissists

00:28:36 mircea_popescu: you think that matters ?

00:28:41 trinque: seems easy to convince the narcissist it's "not him"

00:28:44 trinque: would never be him

00:28:49 trinque: because he's not one of "those people"

00:28:52 asciilifeform: who take three steps and (fail to) blow (themselves) up with a (fake) rocket sold to them by usg.

00:29:06 mircea_popescu: trinque understand something : if one million people becomes 1% more likely to lie on their taxes,

00:29:13 mircea_popescu: the government has lost 3-4% of its revenue.

00:29:13 asciilifeform: because 'friend of 30 years' vouched for the broker

00:29:46 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform you're neglecting the only important thing here, which is the actual fine points of the relationship between the abused wife and her husband.

00:29:50 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: eh no. they take it out of the captive tax cows - sales, shrinkflation, outright moneyprinter

00:29:58 mircea_popescu: that does not work.

00:30:05 mircea_popescu: for a government to survive, it must actually have support.

00:30:18 asciilifeform: rock solid support from the cattle

00:30:25 trinque: mircea_popescu: there are militia groups around calling themselves "three percenters"

00:30:25 mircea_popescu: the fake shows of support (you are charlie, really ?) do not help.

00:30:27 trinque: that kind of thing?

00:30:38 mircea_popescu: trinque no particular kind of thing.

00:30:47 asciilifeform: trinque: the 'militia' thing is solid usg provocateurism from day one

00:30:56 asciilifeform: trinque: judging by the results

00:30:56 mircea_popescu: if anyone is curious enough, please to read the gorbachev diaries after his 87 visit in romania.

00:31:13 mircea_popescu: very short story here : ceausescu made old style, stalinist-like show of how supported he is

00:31:25 mircea_popescu: trying to finesse himself into a senior adviser role for gorby

00:31:30 mircea_popescu: this amused the russian to no end.

00:32:49 mircea_popescu: but that aside, it all boils down to the ancient (here and iirc on fraudsters too) "what's the devil have to pay you to love him" thing.

00:33:01 asciilifeform: the sovblok fell down with nato holding a seemingly soft (in reality not so much) cushion under its arse as it fell

00:33:12 asciilifeform: nobody is playing that role for usg

00:33:19 mircea_popescu: aha

00:33:22 asciilifeform: the buggers know that 'it'll be their necks'

00:33:29 asciilifeform: in the way that gorby didn't

00:33:30 mircea_popescu: what does their knowledge matter ?

00:33:33 mircea_popescu: they know they suck, now.

00:33:37 mircea_popescu: what can they do ?

00:33:49 mircea_popescu: take a simple thing : they all know ms is shit.

00:33:53 mircea_popescu: what can any one do to fix this ?

00:33:59 mircea_popescu: still using it.

00:34:03 mircea_popescu: still shit.

00:34:10 mircea_popescu: and i can send them pizza, and they have to wonder how i know.

00:34:18 mircea_popescu: and they go to work... and there it is. MICROSOFT BOOTING NAO.

00:34:22 mircea_popescu: and yet... what can they do ?

00:34:36 asciilifeform: it 'works' for them in the sense that no nsa-crypto directorate leaks. no meaningful cia leaks. perhaps they use 'underwood' typewriters instead of microshit ?

00:34:42 mircea_popescu: part of a system is part of a system is part of a system.

00:34:42 asciilifeform: damned if i know. but it 'works'

00:34:58 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform if it didn't how'd you know ?

00:35:11 mircea_popescu: the german public didn't know about the enigma leaks.

00:35:19 asciilifeform: if it didn't in the same sense of 'didn't' as elsewhere in usg, i would know

00:35:21 asciilifeform: or at least suspect

00:35:45 mircea_popescu: the fact that you don't is perhaps one of the most perplexing characteristics of your otherwise amply perplexing persona.

00:35:56 mircea_popescu: at least in my head.

00:36:00 asciilifeform: that don't what

00:36:05 *: asciilifeform even more confused

00:36:05 mircea_popescu: at least suspect.

00:36:14 asciilifeform: well admittedly, i suspect many things

00:36:19 mircea_popescu: but not this ?

00:36:24 asciilifeform: but some with better grounding than others

00:36:51 asciilifeform: let's say herr buffet's winblows machine, where he keeps tabs with his lizard commander, was owned.

00:37:03 mircea_popescu: but this strawman is in no case how it'd work is it.

00:37:18 asciilifeform: there is not a public display of this. ergo 'pwner' did not see it fit to do this.

00:37:23 mircea_popescu: uh.

00:37:26 mircea_popescu: let's have a better model.

00:37:43 nubbins`: re: field pogos

00:37:54 asciilifeform: nubbins`: aha?

00:38:05 nubbins`: what's the LED gonna do for two weeks while the thing downloads and indexes blocks? 8)

00:38:10 asciilifeform: nubbins`: blink.

00:38:40 trinque: not trying to derail what's an excellent convo without me; is for example the ease with which us politicians are bought by *any* paying interest relevant here?

00:38:44 nubbins`: but that's what a bricked pogo does as well

00:39:11 asciilifeform: nubbins`: that's because u-boot sets it a'blinking by default

00:39:14 asciilifeform: nubbins`: easily fixed

00:39:20 nubbins`: a-haa

00:39:21 trinque: seems the whole military side can't be considered in absence of the side which can't form one coherent thought

00:39:28 nubbins`: i'm just musing about indications of progress

00:39:38 nubbins`: a blink isn't communicating much

00:39:41 trinque: what admittedly worries me is an event where the military side detaches from the braindead side entirely

00:39:45 trinque: not sure what happens after that

00:39:50 mircea_popescu: so, i am a famously grandiose master of women. and a junior girl aspiring one day to the grandiose status of being my slave goes with me and some of the girls to the opera. lights go off, the girls take off their tops all matter-of-course like. she follows suit. why ? and then, afterwards, we discuss it over coffee and cookies. they are enamoured with it. so is she. why ? her "tabs" haven't been leaked, right ? what if

00:39:51 mircea_popescu: the stripping is something we agreed aforehand to do just to see what her reaction is ?

00:39:53 mircea_popescu: better model ^

00:40:39 mircea_popescu: trinque honestly, this is why i believe the arming of police units with military stock is even done. it makes sense from a "after the end" perspective : you want two mostly balanced forces, because that's your best chance at more or less peaceful stability.

00:40:51 trinque: yes exactly that

00:41:00 mircea_popescu: note how it follows quite exactly the cure blueprint discussed above.

00:41:13 jurov: ;;later tell nubbins` key added

00:41:13 gribble: The operation succeeded.

00:41:17 nubbins`: tyvm!

00:42:15 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: really it is done to make the idea of meaningful (as opposed to merely suicidal; so they hose off the pavement & everybody goes back to work) resistance less and less thinkable

00:42:32 asciilifeform: that robot was publicly displayed for a reason

00:42:41 mircea_popescu: i have mydoubts.

00:42:42 *: nubbins` sends mail, crosses digits

00:42:55 mircea_popescu: the notion that "sucidal resistence" is deterring anyone has had so much debunking recently...

00:43:09 nubbins`: ehh they used the robot because enough of the cops were scared enough

00:43:13 mircea_popescu: ^

00:43:18 mircea_popescu: it sends exactly the opposite message.

00:43:23 nubbins`: there's this famous guy here, leo crockwell. put a gun to his sister's head a few years ago

00:43:27 mircea_popescu: we discussed some time ago the problem with decimation, re shot cops.

00:43:35 nubbins`: cops, having dealt with (and been embarassed by) the guy in the past, descend

00:43:44 nubbins`: he barricades self, cops bring out robot.

00:43:48 asciilifeform: the robot is a logical step to the escalation of usg police practice

00:43:57 asciilifeform: used to be they'd politely ask you to come to the station

00:44:08 asciilifeform: today, breaking down door at 3am and barrel in your mouth is NORMAL

00:44:09 mircea_popescu: just like the cataphract is a logical step to the escalation of ... THE END OF FEUDALISM!

00:44:26 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 35725 @ 0.00025621 = 9.1531 BTC [+]

00:44:31 jurov: nubbins`: gpg: invalid dash escaped line: -Wno-invalid-offsetof -Wformat $(DEBUGFLAGS) $(DEFS) $(INCLUDEPATHS)\n

00:44:33 jurov: gpg: BAD signature from "Jonathan E. Keefe <jonkeefe@gmail.com>" [unknown]

00:44:35 nubbins`: he shoots at robot, cops try smoke bombs, then thousands of gallons of water from fire hoses (!!!)

00:44:48 nubbins`: guy escapes out window during a shift change and hitchhikes back to town undetected.

00:44:52 mircea_popescu: ahahahaha

00:44:54 nubbins`: picked up buying smokes 3 hours later.

00:44:58 mircea_popescu: shift changes :D

00:45:02 jurov: looks like outlook wordwrapped or otherwise mutilated it

00:45:17 nubbins`: jurov gmail but same fate regardless. sec

00:45:22 asciilifeform: ^

00:45:42 nubbins`: there you go

00:45:55 nubbins`: anyway the guy then fires like 5 public defenders, goes on to represent himself

00:46:05 nubbins`: makes the province spend countless tens of thousands

00:46:14 nubbins`: i think they're making a movie about him now.

00:46:19 jurov: same error.

00:46:28 nubbins`: wat! "plain text mode"

00:46:44 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform let's approach this in perhaps a more comprehensible set of terms. end of the world situation, you're behind a wall of sand sacks, enemy behind another. you got two guys left with you, was a full regiment at some point. enemy, unknown.

00:47:09 mircea_popescu: that the enemy starts suddenly firing like mad is not indicative of his strength. for one thing, bullets are scarce. for the other thing, fear is the end of this game.

00:47:43 jurov: nubbins`: a) send to yourself, check. b) leave text aempty and attach known good clearsigned stuff as .txt

02:06:16 decimation: asciilifeform: another good point, why didn't he use pgp to verify his information?

02:18:17 asciilifeform: indexed by google?

02:31:05 mircea_popescu: afaik the way this works is, there's someone in management who's not retarded, cultivates these.

02:31:14 mircea_popescu: as a self-organised thing i never saw it exist

02:31:16 asciilifeform: almost certainly ww2 vintage.

02:31:21 mircea_popescu: save in very narrow conditions (say, the it dept)

02:31:22 asciilifeform: the men, i mean

02:32:55 mircea_popescu: http://log1.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=26-03-2015#1072895 << wait. and this is unlike normal openssh how again ?

02:32:55 assbot: Logged on 26-03-2015 19:55:07; asciilifeform: observation: sshd on a box with no rng may as well be replaced by telnetd

02:33:21 asciilifeform: normal box has at least the entropic component of cpu vs real time clock frequency drift.

02:33:27 asciilifeform: not to mention user i/o

02:33:44 asciilifeform: (very scant, but real, 'meat entropy' from human devices, etc)

02:33:45 mircea_popescu: my poor stab at poor openssh securitah.

02:34:12 decimation: asciilifeform: I thought it didn't have an rtc

02:34:19 asciilifeform: anyway that thing under no conceivable circumstances ought to be remotely shellable and sitting on public net at same time

02:34:27 asciilifeform: decimation: it has a useless rtc

02:34:35 mircea_popescu: fun fact : you can acutally hand-load the entropy pool.

02:34:40 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: sure can.

02:34:47 decimation: why not an init with the auto-kill while loop

02:34:59 asciilifeform: decimation: init of what

02:35:10 decimation: I mean init is literally just a while loop

02:35:12 decimation: no shell

02:35:39 asciilifeform: decimation: this will make, e.g., setting static ip, impossible

02:36:04 decimation: could dhcp

02:36:11 asciilifeform: i don't like dhcp in my house.

02:36:14 decimation: heh

02:36:15 asciilifeform: and can't imagine i'm the only one

02:36:26 asciilifeform: dhcp also means we have to bring back upnp

02:36:29 asciilifeform: think about it!

02:36:40 asciilifeform: the demo turdel dhcp's, yes

02:36:50 decimation: not with a well configured dhcp/firewall

02:36:56 decimation: but it would be more complex, I agree

02:37:04 asciilifeform: decimation: how many in target audience will have well-configured anythign?

02:37:08 decimation: hehe

02:37:16 asciilifeform: we're probably stuck bringing back upnp regardless

02:37:20 mircea_popescu: what fire wall anyway ?

02:37:22 asciilifeform: (as a separate demon, i suggest)

02:37:22 mircea_popescu: this plugs into router.

02:37:33 asciilifeform: aha

02:37:33 decimation: the router that runs nat and has a firewall you mean?

02:37:34 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform whai ?

02:37:43 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: because how is anyone to connect to this thing!

02:37:44 mircea_popescu: decimation that's unused, yes.

02:37:51 decimation: ???

02:37:52 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform ugh

02:37:58 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: think about it for a minute

02:37:59 decimation: gulz at your party gonna configure their services

02:38:04 mircea_popescu: shit.

02:38:15 decimation: this is why half the 'cloud' shit even exists

02:38:16 asciilifeform: jurov made this observation in october

02:38:28 asciilifeform: that upnp will have to be grudgingly brought back, if only as a separate process

02:38:29 decimation: because nat fucks up everything

02:38:31 asciilifeform: (outside of bitcoind)

02:39:01 mircea_popescu: http://bloximages.newyork1.vip.townnews.com/stltoday.com/content/tncms/assets/v3/editorial/c/b6/cb6523a6-02dc-5cc2-be49-762e7e525851/5514637854c52.image.jpg << is that actualy a gun ?

02:39:03 assbot: ... ( http://bit.ly/1Csuteg )

02:39:05 asciilifeform: if the thing is to be given to 'civilians'

02:39:18 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: 'mossberg'

02:39:27 asciilifeform: three-round '12 ga' mag

02:39:39 asciilifeform: the other two barrels, no idea

02:39:43 decimation: is that the bot they sent after the boston bombers

02:39:46 asciilifeform: (speaking of the black barrel)

02:39:49 asciilifeform: decimation: nope

02:39:58 asciilifeform: decimation: from earlier newpiece today re: a tax guy

02:40:13 decimation: heh

02:40:22 decimation: it has some kind of other gun on its left 'arm'

02:40:26 decimation: maybe paintball?

02:40:33 asciilifeform: i count 3 barrels

02:40:39 asciilifeform: brb

02:40:59 mircea_popescu: http://log1.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=26-03-2015#1072978 << yeah.

02:40:59 assbot: Logged on 26-03-2015 20:44:33; asciilifeform: still think 'usg as high-tech north kr is impossible', ?

02:41:06 decimation: one of them might be a laser

02:41:14 decimation: although it is a large barrel for a laser

02:41:27 mircea_popescu: i'd expect smoke launchers etc.

02:41:50 decimation: usians have been brainwashed too long to be turned into north kr-ites

02:41:58 mircea_popescu: http://log1.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=26-03-2015#1072986 << everyone's going to be the first guy to stick a finger in teenaged pussy. FOREVER.

02:49:43 decimation: current 'money' is at 205

02:53:45 assbot: ... ( http://bit.ly/1CsuWgk )

02:57:47 mircea_popescu: decimation bear in mind that this sort of thing is seen often enough.

02:58:20 mircea_popescu: it always seems remarkable when the sec comes out with "oh, clearly they had insider info, held 90% of this improbable strike". but if you go combing over the market, you'll see lots of similar situations all the time.

03:00:57 decimation: mircea_popescu: apparently so. I'm trying to find a way to hedge my mostly long position on us equities

03:01:51 mircea_popescu: options are rarely the way to go for something like that.

03:02:21 decimation: well these days bonds and stocks trade as one

03:02:34 decimation: because the whole thing is predicated on 'usg prints money true/false'

03:13:31 asciilifeform: nubbins`: congrats

03:13:36 nubbins`: ty

03:14:07 nubbins`: still working on cross-compile toolchain for darwin->arm

03:14:26 asciilifeform: nubbins`: 'buildroot' builds cross-chain

03:14:33 asciilifeform: on just about any reasonable unix

03:14:42 asciilifeform: and i mean all of it

03:15:32 nubbins`: hm, i'll cheggidout

03:15:50 asciilifeform: nubbins`: it's what i'm building the whole shebang (as seen in turdel) with

03:16:02 asciilifeform: nubbins`: my plan is to fit bitcoind & its deps in there

03:16:05 asciilifeform: as just another 'package'

03:16:50 decimation: asciilifeform: ideally the thing would have a small lcd terminal for programming ips, keys, etc

03:16:55 asciilifeform: the output is a kernel and a rootfs (in 'turdel', deliberately baked into one binary to simplify testing)

03:17:10 asciilifeform: decimation: ideally i would be designing it full time in b-a or whatnot

03:17:15 decimation: not that this would be of any use to the target audience

03:17:18 decimation: aye

03:17:20 asciilifeform: decimation: and it would be baking in my personal fab

03:17:35 asciilifeform: but we're on 'junkyard wars' not 'who wants to be a quadrillionaire'

03:17:57 decimation: wait do you mean argentina or #b-a

03:18:04 asciilifeform: the former

03:18:10 asciilifeform: (just as example)

03:18:32 *: asciilifeform doesn't know for a fact whether he could tolerate it long-term

03:19:05 nubbins`: spent much time in a foreign country?

03:19:11 asciilifeform: nubbins`: yes, 22 years.

03:19:14 decimation: asciilifeform: well if I win the swedish lottery I'll fund your fab

03:20:28 asciilifeform: decimation: i don't think any lottery on the planet pays a tenth of what it'd cost.

03:20:55 decimation: oh a full chip fab?

03:21:00 asciilifeform: chip fab and army

03:21:19 asciilifeform: and pet economy to feed the two.

03:24:00 decimation: asciilifeform: so you basically want singapore

03:24:09 asciilifeform: sumthinglikethat

03:24:31 asciilifeform: but this is rather like asking about that kind of martial colony would feel best

03:24:46 decimation: well, I would pick an island in the middle of the pacific for definisibility

03:24:50 asciilifeform: not enough info from my perch to even say something reasonable beyond 'it ain't happening'

03:24:52 decimation: defensibility

03:25:12 nubbins`: dat off-brand battery

03:25:24 asciilifeform: island only works if you have thermonukes ready to pop in every major enemy population centre and they know it.

03:25:34 decimation: eh, kinda

03:26:07 decimation: the island is good because if you can operate a reasonable air and sea defense system, you are pretty well protected

03:26:23 decimation: if people wanna use icbm's they are gonna have to be committed

03:26:23 asciilifeform: 'tomahawk'

03:26:31 asciilifeform: much cheaper

03:26:50 nubbins`: asciilifeform:nubbins`: yes, 22 years. <<< lel @ me

03:27:04 decimation: cruise missiles are just as vulnerable as other aircraft

03:27:52 asciilifeform: decimation: see old thread: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=08-02-2014#488934

03:27:52 assbot: Logged on 08-02-2014 00:14:28; asciilifeform: imagine you possess a death ray that magically zaps a rocket, from any distance.

03:28:33 asciilifeform: (summary: defence doesn't work)

03:28:40 decimation: asciilifeform: yes, and on an island you can be the one lobbing rockets at whatever ship/aircraft is lobbing rockets at you

03:31:12 decimation: the whole problem of air defense becomes much simpler once you can enumerate goodness

03:40:12 mircea_popescu: entire fucking building reeks of pot. these people...

03:40:23 mircea_popescu: it's like being in a campus

03:41:06 mircea_popescu: decimation options have a very strong time correlation. unless you have a very clear date in mind, they're not usually the right tool

03:42:24 decimation: aye, you have to 'leap' from one ex date to the next

03:42:36 mircea_popescu: if you do that you will lose money.

03:42:59 mircea_popescu: who was the guy with the "short" fund, had some of the horrid0est results ever. i recall discussed here maybe cca 2013

03:43:07 decimation: well, the problem I have is picking the stirke price and quantity that is appropriate

03:43:27 decimation: there are plenty of short funds avialable, but they all have extremely high costs

03:43:29 mircea_popescu: if you wish to be equity neutral the more common strategy is "buy the equities short the index" or vice-versa.

03:43:43 mircea_popescu: this is very time-invariant.

03:44:40 decimation: yeah that's a fair point

03:44:49 mircea_popescu: <decimation> asciilifeform: yes, and on an island you can be the one lobbing rockets at whatever ship/aircraft is lobbing rockets at you << no you can't. why do you think "international waters" are so important.

03:45:12 decimation: well, presumably if they are firing on you from every steradian you have your rights

03:45:29 mircea_popescu: you have to sink the ship befroe it fires.

03:45:33 mircea_popescu: after, what's it gonna do.

03:45:50 decimation: declare the surrounding 2000 miles of sea to be territorial

03:46:02 mircea_popescu: this is a nude declaration of war.

03:46:03 nubbins`: 2000!

03:46:07 nubbins`: my sides

03:46:40 mircea_popescu: and what happens once some schmoe makes the 2100 mile tomahawk ? you redeclare ?

03:46:53 decimation: no, you shoot it down once it hits your 2000 mile border without ident

03:47:09 mircea_popescu: it doesn't. sits at 2050 miles and waves.

03:47:21 decimation: can do until it runs out of fuel

03:47:37 mircea_popescu: what, plutonium ?

03:48:24 decimation: the point is, at 2000 miles it would be infeasible to 'fire on all sides'

03:49:10 asciilifeform: decimation: lobbing rockets, etc. is a contest of who has the largest pet economy to milk

03:49:30 nubbins`: this is hypothetical to the point of absurdity

03:49:40 asciilifeform: decimation: or do you imagine that even something as basic as 'v1' can be built from dirt

03:50:27 asciilifeform: nubbins`: what a cosmographer does is even less tangible, but we owe a good chunk of early physics to them.

03:50:35 decimation: it's a fair point, one would have to have a large chunk of wealth

03:50:58 asciilifeform: decimation: wealth as in functioning tame economy and natural resources.

03:51:05 asciilifeform: not as in 'numbers in account'

03:51:21 asciilifeform: esp. not if said account lives among the folks you intend to blow up

03:51:21 mircea_popescu: this entire "i'd get an island" thing is not unlike the strange idea of the british troops to wear red.

03:51:24 mircea_popescu: yeah... that'll work...

03:51:27 decimation: heh

03:51:29 asciilifeform: ^

03:51:39 decimation: it did 'work' for a few hundred years

03:51:46 asciilifeform: pre-aircraft

03:51:48 mircea_popescu: right. but you're in the wrong hundred.

03:52:05 mircea_popescu: see, if i had the magical stone that lets you turn time back FOR THE OTHERS

03:52:09 mircea_popescu: i wouldn't bother with the island.

03:52:29 decimation: okay, if not an island? where ?

03:52:33 mircea_popescu: here.

03:53:13 nubbins`: ಠ_ಠ

03:53:31 decimation: hawala works fine for finance but not for real estate

03:53:48 asciilifeform: it also, very notably, does not work especially well for physical objects as a class.

03:54:00 asciilifeform: last i checked, there were no teleporters.

03:54:14 mircea_popescu: i dun get it.

03:54:20 mircea_popescu: what is this objection ?

03:54:52 decimation: where's ascii gonna locate his fab, to be specific

03:54:56 asciilifeform: objection to a hypothetical 'locale doesn't matter'

03:57:03 mircea_popescu: why does locale matter ?

03:57:21 mircea_popescu: decimation the best solution to his problem would seem to me, bribing someone to defraud an existing fab

03:57:25 mircea_popescu: rather than "build his own"

03:57:35 asciilifeform: and trust the product from fraud ?

03:57:42 asciilifeform: and have item fabbed on winblows tools ?

03:57:53 mircea_popescu: the price for trying to be "supergovernment" is that you lose your claim to title for anything you might "own"

03:58:06 mircea_popescu: much like un declared tyrants lose their bank accounts.

03:58:20 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform have it secretly dualboot for all i care.

03:58:28 *: asciilifeform very confused

03:58:33 mircea_popescu: have them upgrade to archlinux "for their own interest".

03:58:36 asciilifeform: how does this 'solve'

03:59:18 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: try to recall the thread where we illustrate that the entire extant ic fab ecosystem sits on two or three winblows-only turdwares that's easily 10,000 man-years each

03:59:44 mircea_popescu: so ?

04:00:08 mircea_popescu: the problem is no longer "where to place the fab" but "where to find coders".

04:00:11 mircea_popescu: very substantially different.

04:00:12 asciilifeform: so who do i 'persuade' to replay 1970-2000 ?

04:00:24 mircea_popescu: who is different from where.

04:00:26 asciilifeform: and it isn't 'coders' in the sense of monkeys but actual people, who would be required.

04:00:27 mircea_popescu: THIS works for who.

04:00:33 mircea_popescu: no argument.

04:01:47 mircea_popescu: but if you ask me, i do not see ideal situation as "private island where 04938509348509834 SAM batteries and nukes, and purpose-built IC fab"

04:02:11 mircea_popescu: i see it as, "elaborate virus, makes targetted fab shit out our own gear "accidentally", we buy it as tailings for pennies"

04:02:22 nubbins`: oh ho

04:02:33 mircea_popescu: did i ever recount the very early "special order" scam romanians got hit with ? in like 91 ?

04:02:37 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: this is about as plausible as the virus scene from the infamously bad film 'independence day'

04:02:59 nubbins`: duod the alien computers obv used compatible tech

04:02:59 decimation: except, the fab software in question doesn't 'fail' like a biological thing, it 'fails' like a fragile machine, as in - it doesn't work at all

04:03:09 mircea_popescu: decimation depends on the code.

04:03:33 asciilifeform: and at any rate, it needs to happen N times, not 1.

04:03:39 mircea_popescu: and so it will.

04:03:43 decimation: and achieve substantial yeild

04:04:10 mircea_popescu: decimation 1% yield, as long as it's not your run, is fine isn't it.

04:04:21 mircea_popescu: even better than 99% yield.

04:04:23 asciilifeform: cuckoldry doesn't work on everything.

04:04:27 mircea_popescu: buy the duds, "sell them for scrap"

04:04:29 decimation: how do you gain title to the 100 units to get one working one?

04:04:30 mircea_popescu: most of them, anyway.

04:04:32 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform yes, it does.

04:04:41 mircea_popescu: decimation buy them for scrap ?

04:04:49 mircea_popescu: they ARE garbage are they not.

04:04:57 asciilifeform: this is laughable to anyone who can be bothered to learn even the basics of how such a plant is run.

04:04:59 decimation: wait, I thought they were 'dual use'

04:05:07 mircea_popescu: decimation the plant not the boards.

04:05:16 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform do tell ?

04:05:20 nubbins`: asciilifeform it's like a blue jeans factory, they have a "factory seconds" shop out front

04:05:25 nubbins`: and another in bangor

04:05:27 mircea_popescu: (and ftr, the island thing is laughable too. we're doing lolz here)

04:05:46 decimation: well for one thing, each and every 'run' of a modern chip requires milllions in setup fees

04:05:47 asciilifeform: just when i didn't think that anyone could conceive of a less plausible scene than the island...

04:05:54 mircea_popescu: (just, THIS lolz you're better equipped to appreciate, not being gunnery sgts or w/e)

04:06:06 mircea_popescu: decimation so ?

04:06:26 asciilifeform: no need to be a professional artillerist to see the absurdity of 'shoot everything that moves in the sea' hypothetical

04:06:33 decimation: literally tens of thousands of indians/chinese are employed testing the output of each run

04:06:38 asciilifeform: of each -layer-

04:06:41 mircea_popescu: decimation so ? they know it failed.

04:06:43 mircea_popescu: what now ?

04:07:10 decimation: why would they risk revealing their ip by selling dud units

04:07:18 mircea_popescu: huh ?

04:07:31 asciilifeform: the number of not-entirely-brainless people that would have to be duped simultaneously is large.

04:07:34 mircea_popescu: what, they do the melting down in house ?

04:07:39 decimation: absolutely they do

04:07:44 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform not more than say for your dr. lezzie theory above.

04:07:45 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu might imagine that the fab is a largely automatic affair, but this is not so

04:07:58 mircea_popescu: decimation i'll bet you they subcontract it away

04:08:21 nubbins`: now you gotta own an Iron Mountain franchise too?

04:08:23 mircea_popescu: and if they don't presently...

04:09:06 mircea_popescu: nubbins` wut ?!

04:09:08 asciilifeform: i can see mircea_popescu's scenario playing out -with bribery- rather than elaborate crapware

04:09:19 mircea_popescu: the word bribe was in there.

04:09:33 asciilifeform: in fact, this is quite like the thread from my first contact with #b-a

04:09:52 asciilifeform: or one of them, anyway, where i theorized that the bulk of mining power is produced in exactly this way

04:09:56 mircea_popescu: anyway, point being : we don't construct a new earth.

04:10:00 mircea_popescu: we repurpose the extant one.

04:10:17 mircea_popescu: sorry to disappoint the settlers.

04:10:34 decimation: even with bribery, it would take a very large dole and a tight organization

04:10:37 mircea_popescu: right

04:10:38 asciilifeform: i for one would settle for autonomous food-n-shelter-tron

04:10:43 asciilifeform: could probably come up with a fab. in time...

04:10:46 mircea_popescu: but CHEAPER THAN ISLAND

04:11:01 decimation: that's not obvious to me at all

04:11:06 mircea_popescu: really ?

04:11:06 decimation: how much do you think pitcairn island costs

04:11:19 mircea_popescu: here we go again with this nominalist fallacy.

04:11:19 asciilifeform: decimation: it may as well be in center of washington

04:11:35 asciilifeform: decimation: for all the sovereignty the 'title' of the island gets you.

04:11:47 asciilifeform: or which 'cost' was spoken of

04:11:49 mircea_popescu: you'd have to buy midway to get the 2k miles you want

04:17:54 asciilifeform: wai wat

04:18:31 decimation: and you are right, the enviro-nazis who heavily influence usg want to turn it into a forest precisely to suspend all law

04:37:15 asciilifeform: if it's 'get out of usg', this is rather like learning that your house has roaches and answering by looking for some small corner which, as of yet, does not have any roaches therein

06:56:03 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform thinking on the ghetto stuff... it would perhaps not be inconceivable that the contemporaneous jewish obsession with socialism is derived from the utter failure of their previous, individualistic, capitalist approach.

06:56:27 mircea_popescu: overcompensation if you will, against the thing that produced the "train ticket sold for diamonds" as well as the "i'm fine, even have caviar, what if the world is coming apart"

06:57:02 mircea_popescu: which may even explain the "civilised world" obsession with same, if one subscribes to the theory that hey, said world's been doing nothing but cribbing the jews since whatever, 500ad.

06:57:54 mircea_popescu: in this worldview, the completely insane political construction of "the state of israel" suddenly makes sense, and a lot of it. key to perpetuating the welfare state - no peace in palestine.

06:59:05 mircea_popescu: and for that matter, once one end's threatened, tptb would increase the pressure on the sore spot - hence all the realignment behind palestine these days.

06:59:19 mircea_popescu: chiefly by us - the socialist entity most threatened in its socialism.

07:01:14 pete_dushenski: so ya, there's "no colour, no gender" etc.

07:01:25 mircea_popescu: i thought that was the idea behind "hygienic" circumcision

07:02:02 pete_dushenski: if one is to ascribe any purpose to it

07:02:10 pete_dushenski: other than "do this to prove your faith"

07:02:23 mircea_popescu: i suppose cutting bits of genitals is the sort of thing that's interesting enough to explain itself,

07:02:41 pete_dushenski: right. like not eating delicious pork.

15:19:42 Chillum: 5% will not pass by chance in general

15:20:18 Chillum: one must run the same test many times on different data, only if a test is failing reliably or more than likely by chance is there a problem

15:20:37 Chillum: the radioactive decay looks like it has issues but that is likely due to the sampling methodology

15:22:01 Chillum: while the average rate of radioactive decay is predictable the actual moment of a given decay is very uncertain

15:41:14 nubbins`: nod

15:41:18 asciilifeform: actually the most glaring flaw with virtually all hardware rng is lack of auditability.

15:41:32 nubbins`: oh here we go, someone qualified can take over

15:41:48 asciilifeform: actually on my way somewhere, so will have to happen later.

15:41:55 nubbins`: :D

15:42:25 Chillum: lol, that zap switch will burn out the EPROM if used for too long

15:42:34 Chillum: they have a limited number of writes

15:42:58 nubbins`: nothin' lasts forever!

15:43:11 Chillum: other than auditability how could one detect a subtle failure?

15:43:57 Chillum: I like that it uses 2 trngs through a xor gate. Often that is implemented in software with two devices

15:53:24 danielpbarron: newp

15:53:25 Chillum: looks like the same printer too

15:53:33 danielpbarron: i've had a piper printer for a couple years now i think

15:53:45 danielpbarron: i sorta bricked it

15:54:04 Chillum: Still, I will always write my own paper wallet software that uses vanitygen. You never know if some 3rd party programmed it to only make 500 million keys and has then precomputed

15:54:06 danielpbarron: probably fixable but i wouldn't want to actually send funds to any address it produces anyway

15:54:30 danielpbarron: yeah i was trying to get mine to pull from a list of pre-generated addresses that i supplied

15:54:46 danielpbarron: in addition to modifying the artwork

15:54:50 Chillum: if you limit your generator to a smaller keyspace that you precompute then you don't need a backchannel of communications

15:55:15 Chillum: If you want that then use a deterministic wallet

15:55:28 Chillum: unlimited keys with the advantage of backup.

15:55:36 danielpbarron: meh

15:55:40 Chillum: but really I want mine to forget right away. I have no swap and do everything in RAM

15:55:49 danielpbarron: i liked it for handing out freebies to people i met

15:55:55 Chillum: no temp files, the user running it has read only access to the drive

15:55:57 danielpbarron: but i'm done with that spammy nonsense

15:56:21 nubbins`: freebie handouts

15:56:27 nubbins`: not a great way to make people care, hey?

15:56:29 Chillum: I am pretty sure I am not writing to disk. No flashing green light

15:56:40 Chillum: I did a scan for keystrings and did not find them

15:57:08 Chillum: nubbins`: If I gave out bitcoin samples it would be in the form of a coupon that expires. If you just give out wallets half the people will throw them out

15:57:21 Chillum: have some service that lets them claim it if they are actually interested

15:57:59 danielpbarron: yeah i should have let mine save the private keys

15:58:03 nubbins`: just give em a privkey, and take the money back if it's still there after x days :P

15:58:09 danielpbarron: and told people i'd sweep the funds back after X time

15:58:16 Chillum: nubbins`: what if they add to the key???

15:58:25 danielpbarron: now i'm responsible for some "burned" coins forever bloating the tx pool :<

15:58:27 nubbins`: score

15:58:30 Chillum: lol

15:59:36 danielpbarron: oo, instead of twitter feed, i could make one of these print MPEx stocks

15:59:40 Chillum: Before I was using a perl script that made a png that I printed on my laser printer and deleted. Sooo copy on my hard drive, copy on my printer, copy going over my network to the printer. I said "There has to be a better way"

15:59:46 Chillum: I feel much safer with my offline printer

15:59:55 Chillum: yes, it can do pretty much anything

16:00:04 Chillum: the python library makes it fairly easy to use too

16:00:15 Chillum: text is as simple as printer.println("This is text")

16:00:17 nubbins`: that's heat sensitive paper?

16:00:22 Chillum: ya

16:00:30 nubbins`: hope ya don't store those long-term :D

16:00:33 Chillum: dirt cheap, but don't get the printouts hot

16:00:37 nubbins`: yah

16:00:40 nubbins`: even time will fade em

16:00:46 Chillum: I have a plastic card printer for long term wallets

16:00:50 nubbins`: oh, nice.

16:00:54 Chillum: like ID style

16:00:58 nubbins`: always wanted one

16:01:03 nubbins`: not so much since i turned 19

16:01:06 Chillum: images need to be converted into 2 bit bitmap but there are examples online

16:01:19 Chillum: The EPPSON R280 is what you want

16:01:26 Chillum: out of production but still on ebay

16:01:46 Chillum: you need to replace the DVD tray with a card tray from a Chinese company that also sells the blank cards

16:01:48 Chillum: or ebay

16:02:08 nubbins`: epson printers are great, i've got two wide-format ones

16:02:22 *: Chillum is jealous

16:02:29 nubbins`: never thought of getting a card tray for one :D

16:02:40 thestringpuller: nubbins` you are a such a candian hipster

16:02:42 Chillum: I want to invest in a wide format printer and a laser cutter. I just have nowhere to put them

16:02:43 nubbins`: Chillum they're like $300! get one

16:02:55 nubbins`: granted, only 13" wide, but who cares?

16:02:57 Chillum: I would need to pay like $500 a month more rent to get a bigger place

16:03:03 Chillum: this city is stupid expensive

16:03:46 nubbins`: then you get a CISS from cobra inks

16:03:58 Chillum: I am trying to find a place with an extra room for a workspace but nothing really available. After the university lets out I may have more like

16:04:00 nubbins`: and start paying $20 per 16oz instead of $1000

16:04:44 Chillum: oh ya, continuous ink is mandatory if you are going to go into commercial production

16:05:00 nubbins`: we have two: one color (pictured), one with 6 black tanks

16:05:33 Chillum: nice, does it have the secondary reservoir so you can keep printing when you switch out the bottles, or is it a fill from the top system?

16:05:47 nubbins`: secondary reservoir. it uses negative pressure

16:05:54 Chillum: that is the way to go

16:05:58 nubbins`: you can see those tanks are split vertically

16:06:08 nubbins`: back (right-side) half is much lower

16:06:12 nubbins`: that's where the printhead draws from

16:06:34 nubbins`: you just gotta swap the rubber stoppers to maintain pressure

16:06:36 Chillum: the printer kit called for soldering but I did the whole thing with pin header wires

16:06:51 nubbins`: this one just clicks into place

16:06:56 nubbins`: fake printhead

16:06:56 Chillum: the one thing I like about thermal paper(as crappy as it is) is that you don't need ink

16:07:11 nubbins`: yeah

16:07:16 nubbins`: ink cost is pretty minimal here

16:07:41 Chillum: costs 1 cent for each 3.5 wallets by my calculations

16:08:04 nubbins`: nb

16:12:16 Chillum: if the piper is running a raspberry pi then it is far from bricked. Just reimage the sd card with raspbian then plug it into ethernet, nmap for port 22 and login user/password pi/raspbian

16:12:30 Chillum: then you can get the python thermalprinter library and do whatever you like

16:50:24 nubbins`: this would be like restaurants selling USD.

16:50:27 trinque: instead of the "btc for latte" situation

16:50:49 Chillum: credit cards started as dining cards

16:50:58 Chillum: it is just a way to introduce the public to an idea

16:51:03 Chillum: through food

16:51:05 trinque: that's also my answer to people who want bitcoin to be visa... build visa *atop* bitcoin

16:51:08 danielpbarron: sell them? you don't get countless credit card applications in the mail?

16:51:08 trinque: nothing's stopping you

16:51:22 mircea_popescu: nubbins` anyone so inclined, basically.

16:51:41 mircea_popescu: Chillum has it, the current credit card is no sort of broad idea or innovation or anything. just an overgrown gift card.

16:51:49 Chillum: the restaurants could act as places to buy/sell foodcoin(bitcoin)

16:51:49 danielpbarron: the majority of my snail mail is credit card spam

16:51:58 Chillum: people won't like the changing value though

16:52:19 mircea_popescu: by then, not much room for value to change TO

16:52:19 danielpbarron: that's why i prefaced with "after the dollar collapses"

16:52:28 funkenstein_: they didn't like leaving french francs or old chinese yuan either

16:52:31 mircea_popescu: why do you think usg dollar is stable, zimbabweg dollar is not ?

16:52:32 danielpbarron: things will be priced in satoshi, not bitcoin

16:52:40 mircea_popescu: because of any difference in policy / quality / wealth / value ?

16:52:42 Chillum: it is not stable

16:52:43 mircea_popescu: neah. just... size.

16:52:49 Chillum: it is just commonly used as a reference

16:53:02 funkenstein_: big ships never sink, it's well known

16:53:09 Chillum: lol

16:53:11 mircea_popescu: well so then. once bitcoin is commonly used as reference, there's no change for people not to like

16:53:15 mircea_popescu: as it's not changing

16:53:19 Chillum: yup

16:53:27 felipelalli: felipelalli tell you what, if you can prove ownership of a btc address, you can have 1% of whatever's in there as a loan, for short intervals, interest free. how about that. << mircea_popescu it would be perfect.

16:53:32 mircea_popescu: funkenstein_ ships have to interact with the sea. big shits however, mostly interact with people's heads.

16:53:41 mircea_popescu: felipelalli so go for it

16:53:55 funkenstein_: how to sink the shit is the question then

16:54:04 *: mircea_popescu building hawala on top of hawala since 2011!

16:54:24 mircea_popescu: i dunno funkenstein_, this stinker's a floater >D

16:54:51 felipelalli: mircea_popescu: :)

16:54:56 felipelalli: Have you guys read the article?

16:55:00 Chillum: the rising tide raises all ships, well the ones that don't sink

16:55:08 danielpbarron: felipelalli, i have

16:55:12 funkenstein_: rising tUSD

16:55:30 felipelalli: danielpbarron: makes sense?

16:55:37 danielpbarron: yep

16:56:02 felipelalli: the impact being quite interesting in the Brazilian community.

16:57:08 felipelalli: a lot of people came to congratulate me, but all in pvt. and few people disagreed, but who disagreed did so in public.

16:57:16 mircea_popescu: felipelalli go sign "Hello this is not dog" with the address in question.

16:59:53 mircea_popescu: ;;seen brendafdez

16:59:54 gribble: brendafdez was last seen in #bitcoin-assets 1 day, 17 hours, 54 minutes, and 9 seconds ago: <brendafdez> mircea_popescu it works now. Anyway the IP I'm on now is one of a public AP, it shouldnt be whitelisted. I'll later give you my home IP, and BingoBoingo has my VPS IP already. I didn't know you were filtering.

But if I need it one day for (an investment in my company maybe?), the first place I'll try is here. But I won't, don't worry. I think my loans on btcjam was another excitement test than real need. I thoroughly enjoyed your offer, very grateful for that.

17:02:50 danielpbarron: hard thing is getting the rice just right if you've never done it before; or the steak.. or the eggs

17:05:54 danielpbarron: so there you go! turns out you didn't even need btcjam

17:05:57 felipelalli: it's fun to play sometimes.

17:06:06 felipelalli: danielpbarron: yes!! :)

17:06:07 mircea_popescu: nubbins` actually, pork wellington imo.

17:06:15 mircea_popescu: it's certainly what i use to show girls they can be chefs too!

17:06:35 nubbins`: i've never done anything wellington, but have been threatening to for a while

17:06:50 nubbins`: aaaand i've got a dozen pork tenderloins on hand....

17:06:52 mircea_popescu: it's very simple : boil liver, make dough, sear tenderloin.

17:07:26 mircea_popescu: mix liver with cream, vinegar, allspice into a paste. rub all over tenderloin. place on dough, seal, rub egg yolk over, stick in oven

17:07:35 mircea_popescu: there's literally nothing you can fuck up in there.

17:11:59 nubbins`: ^^^

17:12:12 mircea_popescu: nubbins` you can't undercook the meat without undercooking the dough is the beauty of it

17:12:21 BingoBoingo: ^

17:12:44 nubbins`: mircea_popescu but the dummies on hell's kitchen ALWAYS fuck up the wellington!

17:13:10 nubbins`: so i think they just don't give a fuck if it's done or not

17:13:24 mircea_popescu: nubbins` besides, if you're worried use beef

17:13:28 mircea_popescu: then it literally does not matter.

17:13:30 nubbins`: nod

17:13:36 mircea_popescu: "i've seared it, haven't i ?!"

17:13:37 nubbins`: TBF i just use a meat thermometer :P

17:13:45 mircea_popescu: you can't really do that in a dough seal.

17:13:55 nubbins`: not w/o making a steam vent, hey

17:14:18 nubbins`: yeah, i'mma try this.

17:14:29 nubbins`: i've got regular pork tenderloin down to a science

17:15:20 Adlai: so like this((footnote)), for example?

17:15:25 nubbins`: mircea_popescu once the searing is done, i rough-chop an onion and throw that in the cast iron w/ whole baby bella mushrooms

17:15:29 nubbins`: then whole works in oven

17:15:30 BingoBoingo: Adlai: Yeah

17:15:38 mircea_popescu: Adlai no, like this ((footnote))

17:27:00 nubbins`: lel, +1.

17:27:59 nubbins`: another guy suggests buying a frozen lasagna and a casserole dish, and faking it

17:29:01 mircea_popescu: "no mom, i mean use it for cooking"

17:29:03 mircea_popescu: "you can cook ?!"

17:29:24 mircea_popescu: "well... i can't have sex, either! benefit of the suspicion, here!"

17:30:15 mircea_popescu: funny how "i can't cook" means you suck at it, whereas "i can't have sex" means someone's not lettin' you. clearly, i say CLEARLY everyone's great at sex, the impediments can only be evil external stuff.

17:50:00 mircea_popescu: krapf cheese

17:50:06 mircea_popescu: ok, that's chuckleworthy

17:51:11 mircea_popescu: so argentina called for a general strike.

17:51:33 mircea_popescu: because in a country that's essentially living off fumes, the smartest thing to do is ask for more money from the government.

17:52:14 mircea_popescu: i ownder what they'll actually do once the government stops paying salaries outright.

17:52:19 mircea_popescu: not like anyone has a real job anyway.

17:52:41 mike_c: i heard a south american joke about argentina the other day

17:52:45 mircea_popescu: somehow tho i imagine anything sane, like begging while crawling naked in the street is right out

17:52:57 mircea_popescu: after all, argentina is the african country with highest self-respect per capita.

17:53:02 mircea_popescu: which ?

17:53:03 mike_c: "how do you make money off an argentine? you buy them for what they're worth and sell them for what they think they're worth"

17:53:13 mircea_popescu: this is so eerily apt.

17:53:43 mike_c: apparently everyone else in south america already knew this about them :)

17:54:11 mircea_popescu: it's like living in california once all the americans died out and were replaced with spanish speaking italian gypsies.

17:54:26 mike_c: hehe. there you go nubbins`, that's how you do an analogy

17:55:06 mircea_popescu: anyway, something tells me i'ma have a load of fun this year an' the next.

17:55:19 mircea_popescu: only reason i'm even putting up with the idiocy, i really wish to see this collapse.

17:56:51 mircea_popescu: but i tell you, i doubt there was ever a country that so effectually turned innocent goodwill into entrenched aversion.

17:56:56 mircea_popescu: except perhaps hungary or soemthing.

18:01:13 mircea_popescu: but as an amusing bit of color : presidential elections six months away. eight people are candidates - none of them has a running mate.

18:01:26 mircea_popescu: because seriously, what argentine could possibly be second ?!

18:01:58 mircea_popescu: the only reason they even like messi in the first place is a sort of schelling effect : if they all agree he's the forward, it's ok for all the other 10 players not to be the forward.

18:02:12 mircea_popescu: if messi weren't there, you'd have 11 forwards in the team. yes goalkeeper included. what goalkeeping ?!

18:24:02 Adlai: cazalla: can you?

18:24:11 BingoBoingo: ascii_field: A large part of being a culture man is knowing not to live in Ohio

18:24:16 Adlai: it should be viewable by BingoBoingo, cazalla, and me

18:25:05 Adlai: F3251143 for BingoBoingo, 468F4AD0 for cazalla

18:25:21 ascii_field: BingoBoingo: say you had 1M usd. fell down from sky. you could blow 30k in ohio, and live like a pauper on the meagre sub-inflation interest off the rest in american bank. or blow 150k in ar and invest in collapsatron and live like cultured man ? possibly

20:40:32 funkenstein_: and you have put some sample TXs through it?

20:40:36 funkenstein_: sure

20:40:56 mod6: do you still have the link to the pastebin stuff you gave me for your ubuntu build?

20:41:06 mod6: i was thinking about including some of that info in the monthly address.

20:41:19 mod6: yeah, tested send/recieve. lemme see if I can find you a link.

21:10:57 assbot: xkcd: Standards ... ( http://bit.ly/1F23wxR )

21:10:58 nubbins`: like you said, what's a wallet without rng

21:11:24 ascii_field: the jurist term is 'attractive nuisance' iirc.

21:11:43 BingoBoingo: Seems prudent to excise it

21:11:47 ascii_field: like a power saw left unwatched for children to play with

21:12:10 BingoBoingo: Nah, the powersaw is safer and people tend to learn from that

21:13:35 thestringpuller: BingoBoingo: tell that to beavis >> http://s965.photobucket.com/user/TimeCaptured/media/saw1.png.html

21:15:50 mike_c: but, now a separate pogo branch must be maintained?

21:17:22 *: ascii_field would maintain it

21:17:24 mike_c: does the -disablewallet config switch exist in this version? that would be easier way to prevent children from playing with matches

21:17:39 ascii_field: mike_c: would like to cut some footprint

21:17:48 mike_c: i thought it was like 5.5mb.

21:18:08 ascii_field: mike_c: the buildroot i have is theoretically retargetable to multiple cpu archs and boards with minimal effort

21:18:28 ascii_field: mike_c: i have several candidates for replacement of 'pogo' if something 'happens to' our supply.

21:18:28 punkman: we don't really want wallet code in regular bitcoind anyway

21:18:34 ascii_field: ^

21:19:25 mike_c: yeah, fine, but that's different from starting a pogo branch. if it gets cut from master branch, problem solved (if there is a problem?)

21:19:46 mike_c: ascii_field: you saying that cutting it makes it more portable? or just easier to fit on smaller arch.

21:20:01 ascii_field: mike_c: would like to fit on boards with 8M rom

21:20:22 ascii_field: but more general principle

21:20:28 mike_c: ok, so cut it later when we have a 8m device we want to fit it on.

21:20:28 ascii_field: smaller -> more auditable.

21:20:49 nubbins`: hmm

21:20:51 ascii_field: but i will leave this for the folks whose project it actually is, to decide

21:20:57 punkman: maybe add my mining-snip patch too

21:21:09 nubbins`: suppose instead of -disablewallet, flip the bit and make it -enablewallet?

21:21:14 ascii_field: punkman: for the wallet-less version, would be logical. (how can mine without wallet ?)

21:21:15 nubbins`: short-term

21:21:26 ascii_field: or i suppose you could...

21:21:28 nubbins`: make wallet=off the default while we decide when to trim

21:21:40 nubbins`: in a perfect world, remove_wallet.patch

21:22:04 nubbins`: included as an "extra" in -RELEASE.tar.gz

21:22:13 mike_c: short-term (i.e. pogo) solution is to run bitcoind with the config switch. in the near future the foundation will remove the wallet and miner and then it will be smaller around the same time we want to fit it on a 8m device.

21:22:15 nubbins`: (/me imagines makefile.osx in same "extra"

21:22:17 mike_c: serendipity will prevail

21:23:08 mike_c: of course, i use 'we' loosely since all i've done is buy a pogo and wait.

21:23:15 nubbins`: ^ +1

21:23:16 nubbins`: 8)

21:29:12 Adlai: ascii_field: mining only needs an output script for the coinbase

21:33:29 nubbins`: what's the endian-ness of the pogo's arm, big?

21:35:30 ascii_field: Adlai: yes i remembered

21:35:36 ascii_field: nubbins`: selectable

21:35:44 ascii_field: nubbins`: little-endian by default

21:35:50 nubbins`: i'll stick with that

21:36:11 ascii_field: (most recent embedded system-on-chip are selectably-endian)

21:36:34 nubbins`: you have a buildroot .config you can pop up somewhere?

21:36:55 ascii_field: nubbins`: it's a mega-turd. not just one config, but four, and they have to be packaged in a certain way

21:37:03 ascii_field: ideally will wrap this up tonight

21:37:12 nubbins`: lovely

21:37:32 ascii_field: i want folks building their own pogo runtimes soon.

21:37:37 nubbins`: finally got buildroot nut cracked here

21:37:52 nubbins`: s/make menuconfig/make nconfig

21:37:55 ascii_field: so that i can, perhaps, escape the chore of figuring out why sata refuses to init

21:38:09 ascii_field: and how to read the pushbutton and toggle the lamp

21:38:29 nubbins`: !up ascii_field

21:38:35 ascii_field: all else - works

21:38:42 ascii_field: (hardware-wise)

21:39:07 ascii_field: did cut a bunch of irrelevant crud from the kernel (keyboards, mice, sound cards, etc)

21:39:15 nubbins`: i'll take a peek at the light and button stuff, seems straight-forward

21:39:28 ascii_field: nubbins`: like sata, it mysteriously fails to work

21:39:36 ascii_field: that is, i have the marvell config flags set

21:39:42 ascii_field: but no devices appear for them

21:40:20 ascii_field: anyone who is planning to screw with the kernel, -must- have tftp set up

21:40:29 ascii_field: otherwise the debug loop is unbearably tedious

21:41:03 ascii_field: i, for example, only need to cycle power to the 'pogo' to test a newly-built turdel.

21:41:20 trinque: flight 9525 seems a great way to argue "see, this is why we need to be able to remote-control planes"

21:41:44 ascii_field: trinque: the remotes -were put in-, by and large across the board, in '01-03

21:48:46 ben_vulpes: cant' use a pogo to send btc

21:49:28 mike_c: right. that's what one is going to do with a wallet.

21:49:28 Chillum: I am about to see if a Raspberry Pi 2 can run a full node. The Pi 1 starts to crap out around mid 2014

21:49:39 Chillum: compiling now

21:49:57 mike_c: the separate RI wallet binary could talk to RI bitcoind to send btc

21:50:08 ben_vulpes: mike_c: what i mean to say is that the reference implementation only bears the wallet by virtue of there being no other thing that serves as a wallet.

21:50:19 ben_vulpes: yeah, "could".

21:50:27 ben_vulpes: someday.

21:50:36 ascii_field: suggestion - we #ifdef it.

21:50:51 mike_c: (and double the test matrix)

21:50:52 ascii_field: much as i despise #ifdef

21:51:07 trinque: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com//?date=03-03-2015#1039405 << there's the one, 777 boeing hax keywords yay

21:51:44 mike_c: thing is, one could clone the code, rip out most of the stuff that wasn't the wallet, and voila, new binary that is a wallet.

21:51:57 ascii_field: mike_c: not quite

21:51:58 mike_c: it would be a bad wallet, but it would be a start

21:52:09 ben_vulpes: asciilifeform: and this to reduce size of bitcoind binary?

21:52:24 ascii_field: ben_vulpes: that, and remove the 'attractive nuisance'

21:52:33 ben_vulpes: the latter i don't care too much about.

21:52:36 mike_c: to be clear, ben_vulpes, this is for future unspecified project to create node out of smaller device than pogo

21:52:48 ben_vulpes: ah

21:53:05 ben_vulpes: fuck it, ship it.

21:53:12 mike_c: that's what i said :)

21:53:17 ben_vulpes: "overengineering is like cocaine"

21:53:20 funkenstein_: you could make an SPV node with no wallet

21:53:43 ben_vulpes: funkenstein_: what.

21:54:15 funkenstein_: it would be pretty useless but you could make it small :)

21:54:17 ascii_field: self-propelled vehicle?

21:56:39 ben_vulpes: rip out json/rpc and replace it with a thing i can call that vomits forth formatted blocks first

21:57:08 ben_vulpes: pogo's not my baby by any stretch of the imagination, but doing anything but getting them running seems like unnecessary yak shaving.

21:57:24 ascii_field: ben_vulpes: if you or anyone else has spare time - i recommend taking a look at the bastard blocks thing

21:57:42 ben_vulpes: bastards though, is at the *top* of the todo list.

21:58:15 ben_vulpes: asciilifeform: pogo's in the mail.

21:58:19 ascii_field: Aha

21:58:34 funkenstein_: what are bastard blocks?

21:58:45 ben_vulpes: blocks with no chain ancestry.

21:58:51 ben_vulpes: they build up in memory, leading to OOM kills.

21:59:27 ben_vulpes: naive backport entails picking a random bastard and nuking its whole chain

21:59:35 ben_vulpes: (if i read the cee pee pee correctly)

22:06:19 funkenstein_: *but we aren't ready for them yet?

22:06:24 ascii_field: danielpbarron: aside from the nondeterminism and potential for random db corruption, the bastards thing makes it entirely impossible to use the otherwise perfectly adequate 32M machines

22:07:51 danielpbarron: i do the restarts manually, as i keep an eye on them nearly all day; i use the restart as an opportunity to back up the block database of the solid state pogo

22:08:31 funkenstein_: i set a script with bitcoind stop, sleep, and restart, and put it in crontab

22:08:54 danielpbarron: that'll probably be the shipped sollution

23:40:36 mircea_popescu: The optional presentation last Monday, attended by about 120 students, featured a naked non-student woman being repeatedly sexually stimulated to the point of orgasm by the sex toy, referred to as a "fucksaw." The device is essentially a motorized phallus.

23:40:37 mircea_popescu: John Michael Bailey, the psychology professor who leads the class in question, declined to comment to the Daily Northwestern "due to class preparations that he said last until Friday." He then hastily grabbed his fucksaw, retreated to his lair, and locked the door."

23:40:42 asciilifeform: theoretically qualified the kids for admission to eu unis

23:40:47 *: asciilifeform did not uses this

23:40:51 asciilifeform: *use

23:41:38 *: mircea_popescu approves of northwestern.

23:42:35 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: bailey is infamous for an epic grudgewank centered around his book, 'the man who would be queen'

23:42:44 asciilifeform: a treatise on transsexualism

23:43:11 mircea_popescu: because he correctly identifies the "transsexual" delusion as malignant narcissism ?

23:43:18 asciilifeform: as for the fucksaw, it was, iirc, made from a genuine reciprocating saw!

23:43:30 asciilifeform: brilliant concept, cheap & effective.

23:43:44 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: aha how'd you know.

23:43:52 asciilifeform: a real ripper of a book, too

23:44:20 mircea_popescu: mywah.

23:44:28 asciilifeform: mega-recommended.

23:51:00 nubbins`: <+mircea_popescu> who the fuck explains their income ? they think they got a case, let them make the fucking case. <<< emery famously listed "marijuana seed dealer" on his income tax returns for years. ended up remitting ~$2mn in total

23:51:53 asciilifeform: ^ in total << before picked up ?

23:52:01 asciilifeform: or what, quit on his own ?

23:52:21 nubbins`: <+ben_vulpes> mircea_popescu: YOU WON'T GET ME TO SAY ANYTHING NEGATIVE ABOUT THEM <<< a node's a node, smarty-pantses!

23:52:38 asciilifeform: and i'll add that the real 'explaining' happens after they take your money, all at once

23:52:55 asciilifeform: 'tell us why you should see this dough again?'

23:53:10 asciilifeform: 'or you'll what, sue? with what?'

23:53:19 trinque: got stock debian on my pogo

23:53:36 trinque: this is where I ended up due to the "..." in the uboot section of instructions

23:53:37 asciilifeform: trinque: tried turdel ?

23:53:46 nubbins`: <+mircea_popescu> BingoBoingo wait, their virtual best korea has an unconvertible shit currency that nevertheless is great because you can buy whores at the local wholesale whorehouse ? except no girls ther ? << ;;google itchy & scratchy bucks

23:53:52 trinque: asciilifeform: put debian on the sd card in a partition, I assume I can flash the nand from there?

23:53:57 trinque: and then add a uboot entry for it?

23:53:58 asciilifeform: trinque: if you replace whatever kernel you have now, on whatever kind of drive, with it - it will boot

23:54:04 asciilifeform: carries own rootfs

23:54:07 trinque: ah neat

23:54:10 nubbins`: <+asciilifeform> ^ in total << before picked up ? <<< before picked up.

23:54:31 asciilifeform: trinque: don't flash turdel into your nand

23:54:36 asciilifeform: it'll be difficult to replace it

23:54:37 trinque: k

23:54:38 nubbins`: as in, legitimately paid $2mn in taxes on marijuana seed sales over about a decade

23:54:44 asciilifeform: i didn't build mtd utils in there

23:54:46 nubbins`: which the government received, processed each year

23:54:53 trinque: asciilifeform: I'll keep the debian around and add this as a boot entry

23:55:01 asciilifeform: it's a turdel not a kernel for good reason

23:55:08 asciilifeform: (for one thing, source not posted yet)

23:55:09 trinque: heh

23:55:29 asciilifeform: deliberately self-contained. you don't need to add cmd params to it

23:55:34 asciilifeform: or have a root partition

23:55:37 nubbins`: trinque tftp -> mmc -> usb -> sata is an ok setup

23:55:51 nubbins`: for boot order

23:56:30 nubbins`: if you follow vanilla "hack the pogo" instructions, you can keep the original setup in the loop too

23:56:42 asciilifeform: ^ until we overwrite it

23:56:48 nubbins`: ^

23:56:53 trinque: yeah supposedly I still have their magic cloud distro on here

23:56:53 asciilifeform: the real battlefield build will write over the nand

23:57:02 trinque: as per http://blog.qnology.com/2014/07/hacking-pogoplug-v4-series-4-and-mobile.html

23:57:03 assbot: Qui's techNOLOGY Blog: Hacking the Pogoplug v4 (Series 4 and Mobile) with Linux (Debian or Arch) ... ( http://bit.ly/1G0HHA2 )

23:57:13 asciilifeform: though theoretically we will be using only a tenth or so of the room

23:57:22 nubbins`: you planning to do a single-item boot list, or keep option for tftp/etc?

23:58:01 nubbins`: trinque +1, that's the guide i've been following

23:58:29 nubbins`: right now my pogo will try tftp, then boot debian from sd card, or original pogo if none present

23:58:37 asciilifeform: if screwing with uboot, leave at least 1sec in the boot delay timer

23:58:48 trinque: nubbins`: yeah that sounds good to me

23:58:54 asciilifeform: saves much headache if you want to turn the knobs again from serial console because b0rk3d boot media

23:58:56 mircea_popescu: <asciilifeform> 'or you'll what, sue? with what?' << in which vein, mp has never explained any such thing, to anyone, ever, nor does he mean to start.

23:59:04 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu is not a prisoner

23:59:21 asciilifeform: in usgbankschwitz

23:59:36 mircea_popescu: "i

23:59:51 mircea_popescu: "i'll not as much sue as send your daughter to dance for soros. how about that."
