03:19:35 asciilifeform: <mircea_popescu> other than that, aglass of water is a computational machine << in the same sense as a fart, or even two electrons whizzing by in vacuum, are a computing machine. us earthlings are interested, for this reason, in -programmable- computators.

03:21:32 asciilifeform: <mircea_popescu> usg.nsa loves "virtualization", but it's by no means the only way to skin that cube << the only reason why they so easily sell this flavour of snake oil is that virtualizator gets you 'cpu cycles by the pound' and buckets of little arm boxes - don't (why not? because we never actually invented parallel processing or, especially, process migration. apparently. at least, unix world did not.)

03:22:29 asciilifeform: <jurov> maybe the only difference is computer science was constructed from mathematical (or not very mathematical, like strings) ideas ... << the notion that computing machines, as presently constructed, have some direct connection with what maths folks did in the 1930s is nebulous at best. even if commonly believed

03:36:36 asciilifeform: <ben_vulpes> ... like that cemetary caretaker, eh? << if you know what his weapon of choice was, share - it would add some spiffy detail to the legend

03:44:09 EllieAsksWhy: Blythe Masters is going to make bitcoin respectable http://www.institutionalinvestor.com/article/3446313/banking-and-capital-markets-trading-and-technology/derivatives-pioneer-blythe-masters-tackles-digital-currency.html

03:44:11 assbot: Derivatives Pioneer Blythe Masters Tackles Digital Currency | Institutional Investor ... ( http://bit.ly/1PJCOPB )

03:44:14 danielpbarron: !up walltime

03:44:44 asciilifeform: 'respectability' through shitwashing, l0l, 1,001st of these or what. snore.

03:45:19 EllieAsksWhy: Hello Daniel of Twitter! Wow, this is so exciting. I just replaced my keyboard, I was using the virtual one before, so I could barely type and was hesitant to visit here.

03:46:09 danielpbarron: hello! I had invited you in the past but I think this is your first time?

03:46:10 EllieAsksWhy: Daniel, am I driving everyone away by my presence? That happens in NRx Jackal Hour too :)

03:46:23 EllieAsksWhy: Yes, yes, this is my first time, thank you.

03:46:39 danielpbarron: nope, the contrary i'm sure; your presence will almost surely start up a conversation

03:46:43 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 16000 @ 0.0003059 = 4.8944 BTC [-]

03:46:54 EllieAsksWhy: I often browse, lurk, read your logs though. On the sidelines, voiceless

03:47:35 EllieAsksWhy: I am still not convinced that Blythe Masters is truly a "master" of derivatives. She seems more like an investment banker/ figurehead.

03:47:36 danielpbarron: get in the WoT then

03:48:02 EllieAsksWhy: I want to be in the WoT. I got a keybase.io key thingy. I was trying to figure out if I could use it for here.

03:48:26 asciilifeform: !s keybase

03:48:27 assbot: 56 results for 'keybase' : http://s.b-a.link/?q=keybase

03:48:33 asciilifeform: EllieAsksWhy ^ read & get back.

03:49:20 EllieAsksWhy: Okay, thank you. I love how assbot bots on in. It is like a wonderful, interactive version of reddit. I shall return.

03:50:27 danielpbarron: in what way is this like reddit?

03:51:55 asciilifeform: in the sense of with sufficient lsd everything is quite like everything else ?

03:55:22 danielpbarron: https://twitter.com/EllieAsksWhy/status/592534533443952644

03:55:23 assbot: /danielpbarron /crypto_zen Fodder for Mircea et al to dig into: http://t.co/XTSVRuiD1Z She says she's going to make bitcoin respectable.

03:55:43 EllieAsksWhy: Oh, on reddit, both the Dark Enlightenment and buttcoin sub-reddits, there are sarcastic/funny named bots that do silly things that make me laugh. Even though they are automated, the incongruity always amuses me.

03:56:33 danielpbarron: assbot keeps the harmony

03:57:05 EllieAsksWhy: I initially knew Web of Trust as the Finnish company mywot which has totally gone to hell since someone bought them out a year ago. Your Web of Trust is more like the real one, that proceeded mywot by over a decade, right?

03:57:23 EllieAsksWhy: I love assbot.

03:58:05 EllieAsksWhy: Speaking of keybase.io horrors, this was my introduction to it <smile> https://github.com/keybase/keybase-issues/issues/100

03:58:07 assbot: I don't understand tracking · Issue #100 · keybase/keybase-issues · GitHub ... ( http://bit.ly/1PJGZuz )

03:58:31 Adlai: reddit is inferior to irc on nearly the same level as the inferiority between facebook and actual conversation

03:59:38 EllieAsksWhy: I noticed from the link provided by asciilifeform earlier, that Mircea knows about triplesec. That led me to this, which I'm not sure about https://github.com/keybase/triplesec/tree/master/talks/hack-and-tell%202013.10.22.key

03:59:39 assbot: triplesec/talks/hack-and-tell 2013.10.22.key at master · keybase/triplesec · GitHub ... ( http://bit.ly/1PJHmp4 )

03:59:39 danielpbarron: what is the real one, EllieAsksWhy, in regards to the WoT ?

03:59:39 EllieAsksWhy: I

03:59:58 EllieAsksWhy: The real one is not mywot.com

04:00:25 EllieAsksWhy: The real one is PGP from MIT.

04:01:31 EllieAsksWhy: There is also a Web of Trust that is a Canadian accounting auditing certification, not a professional certification but an audit standard of some sort. The real Web of Trust is the original one though.

04:02:15 EllieAsksWhy: I'm sorry, I'll try to calm down and be more linear. I have never had the opportunity to actually talk about any of this stuff with anyone. I only read about things on my own.

04:02:56 danielpbarron: oh, this WoT isn't from "mywot.com" and it isn't from MIT

04:03:30 asciilifeform: EllieAsksWhy: get in wot (the actual wot). this way you can come back, e.g., tomorrow, and we will have some reason to think that we are speaking with an invariant actual human being

04:03:49 EllieAsksWhy: Yes, Adlai, reddit is inferior to IRC. reddit has an IRC but I haven't used it. I don't trust Facebook. I don't use it, and like to say that it steals your soul. I sort of kind of believe that, in a casual sense, not a real one. It would be blasphemous to suggest it was really true!

04:04:08 danielpbarron: it should be possible to change what key is associated with your nickname, for when you stop using keybase

04:04:31 danielpbarron: or just find a new thing right now. what operating system are you running?

04:05:04 EllieAsksWhy: I need to get a feel for syntax here, and metier. I liked Second Life chat and sometimes Google chat, but am kind of sheltered about messaging, other than Microsoft Connections to annoy the DBA at work.

04:05:34 Adlai: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=27-04-2015#1112301 << calm up all you like, the log is a DAG

04:05:34 assbot: Logged on 27-04-2015 04:02:15; EllieAsksWhy: I'm sorry, I'll try to calm down and be more linear. I have never had the opportunity to actually talk about any of this stuff with anyone. I only read about things on my own.

04:05:51 EllieAsksWhy: I am running Windows 7 with Chrome browser. Not cool, no linux or ubuntu or whatnot.

04:06:27 danielpbarron: I have heard there are things to use on windows

04:06:38 Adlai: !s gpg4win

04:06:52 EllieAsksWhy: DAG, Adlai? Should I not use punctuation here (does it mess up assbot's ability to function smoothly)?

04:07:09 danielpbarron: lol

04:07:21 EllieAsksWhy: Ah, okay, gpg4win thank you. I want to return here again, very much!

04:08:20 danielpbarron: !up Vexual

04:10:23 EllieAsksWhy: Ah, I see. Dogs. With a crufty accent they become dogs :) Are smileys okay here? I interject them a lot.

04:10:35 danielpbarron: yep

04:11:02 EllieAsksWhy: assbot gave me a bitly link with advertising, to https://sidetick.tv/ lol!

04:11:07 assbot: SideTick TV - Internet Television! ... ( http://bit.ly/1PJKxwN )

04:11:20 danielpbarron: in private message ?

04:11:45 BingoBoingo: EllieAsksWhy: The bit.ly links are the links people put in channel, but with a free proxy service

04:12:06 EllieAsksWhy: Ahh, I see, BingoBoingo. Thank you.

04:12:06 Adlai: EllieAsksWhy: actually directed acyclic graphs. you'll notice the logs include lots of disjoint conversations, peppered with links to previous messages, themselves including links to previous messages... nonlinearity is the norm

04:12:08 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 8829 @ 0.00030954 = 2.7329 BTC [+]

04:12:41 EllieAsksWhy: Daniel, I'm sorry, I'm being too diffuse. Disregard that, I can explain further later.

04:12:56 EllieAsksWhy: I just found this http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=13-12-2013#420624 not too propitious for gpg4win

04:12:56 assbot: Logged on 13-12-2013 09:22:57; Duffer1: gpg4win hates me

04:13:03 BingoBoingo: EllieAsksWhy: The proxy links became a thing to discourage people from dropping honeypot links to harvest home ips to DoS

04:13:31 EllieAsksWhy: Adlai, I use chat on StackOverflow. This reminds me somewhat of that.

04:13:59 EllieAsksWhy: Adlai, this is a lovely description "directed acyclic graphs. you'll notice the logs include lots of disjoint conversations, peppered with links to previous messages, themselves including links to previous messages... nonlinearity is the norm"

04:14:13 Adlai: !b 2

04:14:13 assbot: Last 2 lines bashed and pending review. ( http://dpaste.com/1YKAX5J.txt )

04:14:15 Adlai: !up EllieAsksWhy

04:14:33 Adlai: it's like taking pictures of a baby

04:14:57 EllieAsksWhy: Hah, hah re "The proxy links became a thing to discourage people from dropping honeypot links to harvest home ips to DoS". This isn't a good place for Blythe Masters.

04:15:12 hanbot: EllieAsksWhy so what do you do?

04:16:15 EllieAsksWhy: Hello, hanbot! This is me linkedin.com/in/4lisa I probably shouldn't do this, but I'm looking for a job and unfortunately, that requires using my real full name.

04:17:34 danielpbarron: real names are cool

04:17:36 EllieAsksWhy: I do due diligence, using data analysis and descriptive statistics and probability mostly. I like finding problems and vulnerabilities and fraud and arb opportunities.

04:17:59 hanbot: oh hey an ibm alum

04:18:39 EllieAsksWhy: Thank you, Daniel. I wasn't sure if that were okay. So many people use pseudonyms which aren't truly that pseudo.

04:19:02 ben_vulpes: arbitunities!

04:19:26 EllieAsksWhy: I need to figure out how to get in your WoT so that I can return here. If I have questions or encounter difficulties, may I ask you for guidance via Twitter, Daniel?

04:20:11 EllieAsksWhy: Yes, arbitunities! Arb is wonderful, so is delta neutral hedging, sources of small but mostly safe profit.

04:20:57 ben_vulpes: myeah, i'm familiar :P

04:21:52 EllieAsksWhy: I will peruse. Y'all will probably be amused by this, but I tried to get myself here by getting an account at one of those bitcoin gambling sites, Satoshi Dice or such. I thought that if I could get an ID there, I could figure out how to use it as a

04:22:10 ben_vulpes: lolwut

04:22:26 ben_vulpes: so instead of...research...you just try random things?

04:22:33 EllieAsksWhy: baseline for establishing one here. Nope! And bitcoin dice rolling is probably an appalling waste of money!

04:23:13 ben_vulpes: it is -ev

04:23:13 EllieAsksWhy: Okay, I am departing now. Thank you everyone. You've been kind and mild. Please give my best wishes to Mircea, if possible.

12:34:54 davout: also they claim to have sunk $100k in the development, but somehow they're opensourcing it now, because incorporating somewhere else than russia isn't practical...

12:35:10 davout: williamdunne: weren't you saying you were making one yourself?

12:35:39 jurov: hi davout, you wanted to ask about mailing list?

12:35:59 davout: jurov: yea, i subscribed a few times but never received a confirmation

12:36:44 Naphex: williamdunne: what davout said. C# is a disadvantage though. You'd have to be crazy to run trading infrastructure on windows sesrvers

12:36:55 Naphex: servers *

12:37:16 davout: Naphex: there's this mono thing by miguel de icaza iirc, no idea if it's still a thing tho

12:37:58 williamdunne: Naphex: Run it in mono most likely

12:38:22 williamdunne: davout: I thought some of the structure was pretty cool with the Elixir message queue

12:40:17 mircea_popescu: <davout> williamdunne: some dudes made some code for a matching engine, not really noteworthy << actually it's the most oversupplied intem in stock.

12:40:34 mircea_popescu: in the bitcoin space, "matching engines" are the equivalent of crusted socks in adolescent boys' bedrooms.

12:40:45 williamdunne: nice

12:40:50 mircea_popescu: so many of them, made with an apparent firm conviction that somehow they'll bring recognition...

12:41:52 davout: yep, because you know, what's really needed and important is that they're able to match 1m orders/s instead a meager 10k orders/s

12:44:26 jurov: if someone gave $100k to alf for bitcoind development instead...

12:44:48 mircea_popescu: no, because alf needs actual 100k

12:44:54 mircea_popescu: as opposed to this kind of 100k

12:45:14 jurov: lol true

12:46:59 williamdunne: davout: Isn't the point that the in-theory number is about an order of magnitude higher than what it can handle when in actual use

12:47:47 Naphex: williamdunne: anyway trading engines are not that hard to write, they do require some experience to get right.

12:48:09 jurov: "measured in orders/s P.M.P.O"

12:48:33 davout: williamdunne: not really, if the theoretical number is that different from the actual one, you have a problem

12:49:10 Naphex: williamdunne: the good option is to hire the right people and develop an engine according to your infrastrucutre and needs

12:50:01 williamdunne: davout: Well for example, the Java one that I wrote can match 160k/s when pumping in random data directly. But when we add the overheads for actually accepting and handling orders from customers it will not do close to that

12:50:43 Naphex: williamdunne: you aren't doing 'real-matching'. those stats aren't really saying much

12:50:48 williamdunne: Naphex: True

12:50:59 davout: williamdunne: why? the matching engine should be the only single-threaded bottleneck

12:51:32 davout: you can spread order acceptation, and trade settlement, just not the matching

12:51:52 Naphex: williamdunne: and with binary insert it can do a lot more then tha

12:51:55 davout: and if you can't there's really not that much point in writing something really fast

12:52:04 williamdunne: Naphex: True, I still need to take a proper look at that

12:52:25 williamdunne: Naphex: Still don't understand how to handle the order of the maps though

12:54:04 williamdunne: davout: Haven't looked to much at the architecture of that yet, but you're right

13:22:55 mircea_popescu: dude proceeds from this locus where no matter what, he will keep on getting money on his govt issued card.

13:23:09 mircea_popescu: because no matter what, govt will keep getting that money, and keep seeing him as a worthy expense.

13:23:11 mircea_popescu: no matter what

13:23:13 mircea_popescu: no matt...

13:23:31 mircea_popescu: bitcoin doesn't take over through convincing random fuckwit of "more benefits". bitcoin takes over by raping the state. permanently.

13:24:08 mircea_popescu: then OboombaIII is more than welcome to use all his cards for all the benefits he wants, whatever they may be. it won't be food, but hey, a rich life of the mind doth not require material contraptions.

13:25:19 williamdunne: bitcoin doesn't take over through convincing random fuckwit of "more benefits". bitcoin takes over by raping the state. permanently. <<< See, I totally agree with this. But this is why I think that there should be bigger blocks (not Gavin's proposal, but statically bigger). Easier to rape the state surely if its less inconvenient and more people can do so

13:25:46 mircea_popescu: im not sure how the logic worked there.

13:26:01 williamdunne: More = More basically

13:26:17 williamdunne: More people = More raping and pillaging

13:28:18 williamdunne: Because if more people are able to keep their funds away from government tendrils, it seems like it would do more damage than a few. While a few people have a lot of money to hide, a lot of people can be turned against them (i.e "evil tax avoiders") and violence works

13:29:32 mircea_popescu: if violence worked, the situation wouldn't be stable currently.

13:29:41 mircea_popescu: what was it, 1% of world pop owns 50% of assets or what ?

13:30:36 mircea_popescu: besides, a little bit of violence would go a very long way towards resolving most of the western problems currently.

13:31:10 williamdunne: Well yeah, but the violence I'm describing is going against the people who shouldn't be receiving it

13:31:43 mircea_popescu: the thing with violence is that it's pretty self-explainatory.

13:31:53 mircea_popescu: if you're receiving it, you should have been.

13:32:31 williamdunne: How so?

13:32:44 mircea_popescu: what do you mean how so ?

13:38:08 williamdunne: mircea_popescu: I think its fair to say holocaust is bad

13:38:24 mircea_popescu: williamdunne but these aren't involved third parties. so the burned jews are too dead to say, and the burning germans are also too dead to say. at the time however it stands to reason the victims all agreed they shouldn't be victims, and the perpetrator agreed on the contrary pov.

13:42:30 williamdunne: mircea_popescu: But I don't see how that makes it just

13:43:03 mircea_popescu: well, "just" only exists in a certain context. in the context of violence itself, there's no space for more functions than "DidItHappen()" which returns a bool.

13:43:08 jurov: mircea_popescu: you ever asked multiple automechanics which car is the most reliable?

13:43:25 mircea_popescu: if you construct more complex spaces you get "WasItGood()" and "ShouldItHaveHappened()" etc, but now you are also stuck with the complexity.

13:43:30 jurov: it's usually 2 people 3 answers situation

13:43:31 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i would have approached from different angle, and suggested that sommelier must have actual understanding of how the damn thing works. as well as a certain amount of reverse-engineering capability.

13:43:33 williamdunne: mircea_popescu: Ah okay, right. That make more sense

13:43:34 mircea_popescu: jurov ayup.

13:43:39 williamdunne: I was more meaning morality

13:43:59 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform yeah but yu're a deductive nut. whereas the job of a sommelier is ipso definitio inductive.

13:44:15 mircea_popescu: no sommelier "deduces" what the better wine is on the basis of watching winemaking videos or some shit

13:44:28 mircea_popescu: williamdunne so how do you enact that morality ?

13:44:35 jurov: well, imagine how would it work. i'll buy 10 kinds of various crap, observe for years how it behaves

13:44:44 mircea_popescu: hopefully something more substantial than "most people agree"

13:44:52 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: the data center thing would be ideal, i agree, if anyone actually ran amd-only data centers

13:44:52 jurov: and in the meantime they are not manufactured anymore

13:44:59 asciilifeform: and jurov has it

13:45:06 mircea_popescu: jurov yeh that's a problem.

13:45:22 asciilifeform: even u.s. dod (pentagon) thought this was a problem.

13:45:27 asciilifeform: attempted to solve, even.

13:45:33 williamdunne: mircea_popescu: Well thats hard to summarize with a formulae as its relative. Normally I would favour the person who was most productive prior to said violence

13:45:36 williamdunne: But its murky at best

13:47:03 mircea_popescu: this "most productive" approach is how you got eminent domain.

13:47:48 asciilifeform: i must confess that i have a rather pessimistic view of the sommelier thing because the feedstock is already mind-bogglingly scarce, and the market has been flooded with crud for long enough that -everyone with serious experience has the bulk of his serious experience with crud-

13:47:59 mircea_popescu: anyway, violence has the marked ethical advantage that it removes people from the goop where they imagine they are in control of their environmenty and the future.

13:48:04 mircea_popescu: makes for much more pleasant people.

13:48:16 williamdunne: I'll agree with that one

13:48:43 mircea_popescu: one of those nimby problems : violence is not only great, in the general, but sorely needed for functioning society.

13:48:48 mircea_popescu: meanwhile, nobody wishes it in his own yard.

13:49:27 mircea_popescu: and so california is running out of water because while population doubled, water works have not been allowed to go forward ; and the us is ethically collapsing because hey... no useful violence to be had.

13:49:56 mircea_popescu: the police are trying to compensate, what with the random raping of middle class derps, but it's really a toothpick in a levy breach

13:52:19 williamdunne: mircea_popescu: I don't think they are actively trying to compensate, just a side effect

13:52:22 nubbins`: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=27-04-2015#1112284 << you'd be surprised at how little LSD this takes

13:52:22 assbot: Logged on 27-04-2015 03:51:55; asciilifeform: in the sense of with sufficient lsd everything is quite like everything else ?

13:52:24 williamdunne: Not that it makes much difference

13:52:29 mircea_popescu: well obviously they wouldn't be aware.

13:52:57 nubbins`: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=27-04-2015#1112663 << being a sommelier is more about developing your tongue and nose than about memorizing the taste of x different types of wines

13:53:46 nubbins`: if you see an old man at the grocery store, walking around the produce section and picking up and smelling EVERYTHING, they're probably a sommelier

13:53:47 asciilifeform: nubbins`: the thread concerned a conversation we had at c3 about a hypothetical profession of 'computer sommelier'

13:54:13 nubbins`: yeah, agreed 100%

13:54:21 williamdunne: Sommelier = Citizen of La Serenissima?

13:54:30 nubbins`: williamdunne sommelier = wine guy

13:54:35 williamdunne: Lol

13:54:40 williamdunne: Okay, I was a mile off

13:54:44 mircea_popescu: nubbins` they're prolly just bored

13:54:57 nubbins`: mircea_popescu being a sommelier is pretty boring.

13:55:06 nubbins`: your friends tend to come in 750mL bottles

13:55:12 mircea_popescu: lol

13:55:30 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: incidentally, why i suggested 'sommelier' as term for the hypothetical: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=26-03-2014#582380

13:55:43 asciilifeform: (see ancient snippet in that thread)

13:55:44 nubbins`: but srs, i've given a glass of wine to a L2 sommelier and he told me /which country and which grape/ it was made from

13:56:13 nubbins`: guy's maybe 32 years old

13:56:37 nubbins`: with a decade and a half of wine tasting under his belt

13:56:52 mircea_popescu: more power to him

13:57:08 nubbins`: "tastes like lychee" "wtf does lychee taste like?" "let's go to the grocery store..."

13:57:24 nubbins`: skills like this, i have a soft spot for

13:57:45 nubbins`: my old man used to work with this guy who claimed he could identify ~12 species of wood by smell alone

13:58:04 nubbins`: so the old man brings in 12 wooden blanks for turning pens, and a blindfold.

13:58:24 nubbins`: guy aces 11 of the 12, declares 12th to be "X or Y", and sure enough it was X

13:58:33 asciilifeform: nubbins`: skills that cannot be faked or debased, i have a soft spot for, yes. but the fraudsters did find the pill against this, and it was to build entire fraudwots that cancerously spiderweb across any passageway whereby the layman might wander in

13:58:56 asciilifeform: and that's how we get the faux-sommeliers who cannot distinguish red from white-with-food-colouring

13:59:37 asciilifeform: or go and find me a data center guy who won't recommend an intel box, ever.

13:59:38 nubbins`: ever watch "hell's kitchen"? it's not uncommon for "contestants" to be unable to distinguish pork from chicken by taste alone

13:59:57 nubbins`: TBF this gave me a serious case of the o.Os

14:00:10 asciilifeform: nubbins`: were these folks claiming to be professional 'tasters' ?

14:00:18 nubbins`: naw. aspiring famous chefs.

14:00:22 nubbins`: different specie

14:00:31 asciilifeform: anybody can 'aspire' to whatever.

14:00:36 nubbins`: heh

14:00:46 asciilifeform: but if you learned that these folks -were making a living as chefs- ?

14:01:12 asciilifeform: and that if you were not in -their- wot, you had no chance as a chef ?

14:01:15 nubbins`: it would be my sad

14:01:48 nubbins`: TBF i don't think i have a chance as a chef anyway

14:02:02 *: asciilifeform is also not a chef

14:02:05 asciilifeform: but for sake of argument.

14:02:16 asciilifeform: do you see how the situation is analogous to the 'electronics chef' thing ?

14:02:19 nubbins`: not because of lack of skill -- i put my way through university cooking and i can blow any self-described "chef" outta the water

14:02:27 nubbins`: but because i don't have the patience to earn the red seal

14:02:31 *: mircea_popescu is a chef, for all the diff it makes

14:02:41 nubbins`: nor to condemn myself to working in restaurant kitchens

14:02:53 mircea_popescu: oh, seals we mean ? aoknm.

14:03:05 nubbins`: asciilifeform the space of "humans who grok their fields" is ever-shrinking

14:03:09 mircea_popescu: why do we care about THAT issuer again ?

14:03:19 nubbins`: *we* don't, the restauranteurs do

14:03:30 nubbins`: for the same reason the places hiring programmers care about the B.Sc.

14:03:38 nubbins`: not because it implies skill or suitability for the position

14:03:52 nubbins`: but because it implies the holder is willing to waste time in pursuit of a "maybe"

14:04:04 *: mircea_popescu finds it harder and harder to care about whatever the derps outside do.

14:04:05 nubbins`: which is a really nice feature for your employees to have

14:04:25 mircea_popescu: but aptly put.

14:04:29 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu finds it harder and harder to care about whatever the derps outside do. << this is the very definition of atomic dirigible.

14:19:44 asciilifeform: nubbins`: silkscreen for pcb looks quite like this also. paste press is a somewhat different item, applies substance with consistency of toothpaste

14:20:50 asciilifeform: nubbins`: solderpaste is even less fun, because actually is a suspension of metal balls. and if you misapply it, you get defects

14:20:52 Adlai: mircea_popescu: there's some truth to it (pretty awesome owning both sides of the lake!) but it seems like an overly narrow version of "it's just tribal hysteresia that hasn't yet settled"

14:21:35 nubbins`: normal screens for paper printing: 305tpi

14:21:45 mircea_popescu: Adlai i for one believe it's driven by women. specifically : the arabs understand voicing women is a problem and don't understand how to fix it, whereas the jews/xtians/other european colonists don't understand voicing women is a problem.

14:22:33 punkman: mircea_popescu: stevia extract is pretty sweet

14:22:39 punkman: I hate it though

14:22:48 nubbins`: ever since that episode of Breaking Bad?

14:22:49 Adlai: well it's tricky, because (arabs != muslims != those in conflict) with (jews != israelis != zionists)

14:23:13 mircea_popescu: sure. but the groups are broadly arabs / jews+euros.

14:23:19 mircea_popescu: different degrees of heat.

14:23:31 Adlai: there is such a thing as "arab jews", they'll just stab you if you call them that

14:23:36 Adlai: they make up a large part of israel's population

14:23:46 nubbins`: guy's got a point

14:23:48 mircea_popescu: what do they self identify as ?

14:23:52 williamdunne: mircea_popescu: Whats wrong with voicing women?

14:23:59 Adlai: "sepharadic" jews

14:24:12 mircea_popescu: williamdunne they favour "safety", and tend to misunderstand it.

14:24:28 mircea_popescu: ahahahaha... Adlai cruisin' for a bruisin' online lawl

14:24:37 Adlai: from "spharad" = spain, where they got kicked out from by the inquisitors, picked up some arab culture and genes for a few centuries, then immigrated here during the last

14:24:43 williamdunne: But there is nothing wrong with voicing women who are risk tolerant?

14:24:59 mircea_popescu: williamdunne what's "risk tolerant" ?

14:25:29 williamdunne: Able to handle risk, i.e doesn't favour safety

14:25:34 nubbins`: lel.

14:25:36 mircea_popescu: women are very risk tolerant, by nature.

14:25:51 mircea_popescu: they'll get pregnant, for one.

14:26:16 nubbins`: oh man, only 4 days til the creature moves out

14:26:25 nubbins`: caught a rare glimpse of him today

14:26:27 mircea_popescu: that doesn't directly relate to the totally nutso things they do with their children. find one woman that considers a plain "don't worry about this one, you can make another" as an adequate condoleance over her dead baby.

14:26:34 williamdunne: Isn't that de-risking in their opinion? An attempt to secure a spouse?

14:26:55 mircea_popescu: nah, just, protective parenting.

14:27:46 mircea_popescu: so it is.

14:28:00 mircea_popescu: the problem is that an overly protective attitude towards children ruins them.

14:28:18 mircea_popescu: this worked fine back when the species was powerless, because nobody really cared what women derped about.

14:28:33 mircea_popescu: as we've become powerful, they've suddenly got a major problem. much worse than teh nuclear bomb, really.

14:43:29 nubbins`: "got a chance to look at a bunch up close in a gallery in hawaii, the ink was caked on and cracked all over. He used a bunch of different printers. the actual production of the art was no biggie, he just found images with halftones already and blew them up in a camera, or if he took the polaroids when he was doing all the portraits, he added a halftone small, then blew them up to make them go ratty. rubies were cut (or stencils) for b/g,

14:43:29 nubbins`: and many times the printers were just given a bunch of colours and combos to work through."

14:47:14 nubbins`: it's a difficult skill to master, really difficult

14:47:28 nubbins`: if you ever wonder why "grunge texture" got so popular in gig posters and silkscreened art prints

14:47:44 nubbins`: it's because the creators didn't know wtf they were doing and were unable to pull clean prints

14:47:48 mircea_popescu: lol
