00:00:24 asciilifeform: interesting how a closed-source browser is still so beloved

00:01:08 kakobrekla: its not so beloved.

00:01:45 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform antiques.

00:15:11 BingoBoingo: punkman: A number of the AMD Thinkpads don't or at least shouldn't have that (May lack that and possess something else). I think the X140e is the newest of that bunch.

00:15:16 mircea_popescu: so i google to find if i ever reviewed boiler room, the movie. what do i find ?

00:15:17 mircea_popescu: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=26-06-2013&bots=true#102590

00:15:19 ozbot: #bitcoin-assets log

00:15:58 mircea_popescu: prolly should be in the scientology thread, doing the guy's research for him.

00:17:07 mike_c: lowlife goatherder. harsh!

00:18:02 mike_c: wow, there are over 1m goats in romania.

00:19:31 mircea_popescu: how the fuck do you know that ?!

00:19:45 mike_c: random internet page of course.

00:19:48 mike_c: http://ercg2014.org/goat-breeding-in-romania/

00:19:49 ozbot: Goat Breeding in Romania | ERCG 2014

00:19:52 mike_c: how could it not be true?

00:20:17 mike_c: "The number of goat is about 1220000." hehe

00:20:42 mircea_popescu: reason i ask is, recently the government was embarassed to all hell

00:20:52 mircea_popescu: because it couldn't produce a total figure for porcines in the country

00:21:00 mircea_popescu: notwithstanding they do expensive tagging and whatnot.

00:21:03 mike_c: pigs i can't help with.

00:21:14 pankkake: I saw The Wolf of Wall Street. first part felt like Bitcoin

00:21:18 mircea_popescu: animals have individual health bulletins

00:21:45 mircea_popescu: pankkake since you mention it, http://fraudsters.com/2014/the-wolf-of-wall-street/

00:23:25 ThickAsThieves: http://www.reuters.com/article/2014/01/28/us-usa-spectrum-channelsharing-idUSBREA0R1Q120140128

00:23:26 ozbot: U.S. wireless group proposes TV channel-sharing pilot

00:23:42 ThickAsThieves: theyre gonna broadcast on same waves to prove it can be done

00:25:19 ThickAsThieves: bets wall st portrayal is American Psycho

00:25:23 ThickAsThieves: best*

00:25:37 ThickAsThieves: :)

00:26:39 pankkake: I am so many fraudsters articles behind

00:26:46 mircea_popescu: one can not keep up

00:26:54 mircea_popescu: my mother can not keep up

00:27:00 pankkake: hm. so I should get a slave to TL;DR it for me

00:27:51 pankkake: maybe I'll read that Asylum thing on my ereader

00:29:31 mircea_popescu: seems to me if you pay a woman to read fraudsters a slave is you.

00:29:35 mircea_popescu: she gets all the fun

00:29:50 pankkake: anyway I liked TWoWS, weird as I both dislike movies about drugs and di caprio. technically the movies good without making sense

00:30:14 pankkake: I wish there was more emphasis on the actual financial part

00:30:47 mircea_popescu: dude...

00:30:57 mircea_popescu: idiot kid is shown droping acid or w/e pre exam

00:31:01 mircea_popescu: then he "passed it"

00:31:02 mircea_popescu: magically.

00:31:04 mircea_popescu: like that.

00:31:20 mircea_popescu: what's this, like a telenovella, people are supposedly working but nobody does anything ever.

00:32:29 pankkake: I'm not used to read long things on a computer. Except amateur porn stories I guess

00:32:53 pankkake: actually that's how I started to learn English outside of education :D

00:32:59 mircea_popescu: jesus.

00:33:41 Apocalyptic: mircea_popescu, have you watched Black mirror yet ?

00:33:48 mircea_popescu: nop

00:34:01 Apocalyptic: some material for fraudsters articles in there imo

00:34:01 mircea_popescu: i don't really do tv series

00:34:25 mike_c: i hope you weren't saying you didn't enjoy boiler room. granted, it's not good film, but it is enjoyable.

00:34:26 Apocalyptic: nor do I, but i'm kinda sure you'll like this

00:34:42 Apocalyptic: it's not even a tv serie as in the episodes are completely unrelated to each other

00:34:49 Apocalyptic: consider it a set of mini films

00:35:16 pankkake: seems like the twilight zone

00:35:23 mircea_popescu: mike_c marginally.

00:35:32 KRS1: mircea_popescu: did you at least do breaking bad?

00:35:41 mircea_popescu: it's pretty bad. one can enjoy the invasion of the alien robot gorillas too,

00:35:59 mike_c: only if done entertainingly though.

00:36:13 mircea_popescu: KRS1 i went through a few of that and game of thrones during an hour once

00:36:17 mike_c: ah, you did like the sting though. great movie, also with some odd plotlines.

00:36:37 mircea_popescu: the sting was good

00:37:55 BingoBoingo: mike_c: Does this link work for you? http://www.totalwebcasting.com/view/?id=nysdfs

00:38:41 mike_c: yeah, but i couldn't see the video because it was on edgecast. on a different connection now and it works. thanks for the link.

00:40:22 BingoBoingo: mike_c: You are welcome. All of these verbal tics... I dunno if I can actually transcribe this chairperson. Maybe wait for official transcripts or Odesk, then correct the inevitable mistakes?

00:41:05 punkman: Apocalyptic: Black Mirror was fun, especially the first one: "a much-loved member of the Royal Family, is kidnapped. For her safe return, the Prime Minister must have sexual intercourse with a pig on national television."

00:41:17 Apocalyptic: yeah

00:41:21 Apocalyptic: the second one was good too

00:41:29 Apocalyptic: kinda captured all murica there

00:41:34 Apocalyptic: and brilliantly executed

00:41:37 mike_c: heh. odesk is probably best to keep sanity intact.

00:41:41 Apocalyptic: seriously mircea you're missing out

00:42:30 mircea_popescu: ok ok. teh point is made.

00:42:35 BingoBoingo: mike_c: Reminds me of that Nefario video

00:43:23 mircea_popescu: from mike_c's earlier goatlink : "The number of goat is about 1220000."

00:43:30 mircea_popescu: much number...

00:45:02 punkman: a goat conference you say

00:45:06 punkman: sounds interesting

00:45:26 punkman: do all animals have a conference?

00:46:30 mircea_popescu: pretty much all professions have a trade rag and a trade show

00:46:51 BingoBoingo: I have to wonder is a single Winkelvii incapable of undertaking any action on their own?

00:49:21 punkman: I thought they were conjoined

00:52:31 BingoBoingo: If people don't take care to contain the spread of Winkelvii http://www.atlasobscura.com/places/world-s-largest-organism-2

01:15:17 punkman: http://www.alternativepig.eu/home.html

01:15:19 ozbot: Home

01:18:57 asciilifeform: silly, everyone knows that 'alternative' pig is: 'long.'

01:21:02 punkman: so, the US has a patent for weaponized boar taint

01:21:29 Duffer1: i feel there's comedy in there somewhere

02:14:10 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 21600 @ 0.00088852 = 19.192 BTC [+] {2}

02:20:38 BingoBoingo: About 26 minutes into the second session (the one with Mr. LiteCoin) the person chairing the committee suddenly seems to reveal he has more insight into how mining works than any of the witnesses.

02:23:17 BingoBoingo: reeses: Mr Litecoin http://gawker.com/jury-reprimanded-for-laughing-at-alleged-sheep-fucker-r-1510835023

02:23:31 BingoBoingo: *re: Mr Litecoin http://gawker.com/jury-reprimanded-for-laughing-at-alleged-sheep-fucker-r-1510835023

02:30:20 BingoBoingo: Judie Rinearson may be the most informed witness on the Mr Litecoin panel, for suggesting that to run a BTC-Fiat exchange you ought to already have substanitial piles of both.

02:33:36 BingoBoingo: Carol VanCleef and "passing the private keys" might be worse than Mr Litecoin. I though only Cascascius moved BTC by passing private keys around.

02:34:30 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [AM100] 31 @ 0.00424814 = 0.1317 BTC [-] {7}

02:35:18 asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: cascascius is a plot to further holography (and microscopy, and possibly metallurgy) research. with gigantic bounty. you read it here first.

02:36:12 BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: I think this is the first time you said so in such a blunt way. Before it seems you pushed people to read between the lines.

02:37:57 asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: everyone is invited to draw his own conclusion. note that physical reality doesn't care about intentions.

02:38:34 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 17400 @ 0.00088994 = 15.485 BTC [+]

02:39:45 BingoBoingo: physical reality suggests not eating for a month would be a horrible way to die and people talk about that. A much worse way to die physical reality suggests might be gorging of food for 30 days with an orfice sealed by either cyano acrylate or sutures preventing bowel evacuation.

02:39:58 BingoBoingo: People talk about starvation though

02:40:31 BingoBoingo: No one talks about forced GI obstruction

02:41:18 asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: not to nitpick, but people who actually suffer GI obstruction, when they succumb, it is of starvation (digestive tract then only works in 'reverse gear')

02:42:31 BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Much of the time. Othertimes though they succumb to sepsis due to things tearing. Depends on how low you place the obstruction.

02:43:08 BingoBoingo: Age might be an important factor in this though.

02:45:45 BingoBoingo: Fucking retardation from Mr Litecoin "It only matters reimbursing that dollar amount" That is Usagi fucking losing 90+ % of fund value is a victory logic.

02:46:15 asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: curious - why do you care what goes on in that circus?

02:47:21 Duffer1: i'm having trouble figuring out which circus is being discussed here

02:47:25 BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: I'm following the circus because I think appearing at a later incarnation of one of these hearings might be a fun way to break my pseudonymity.

02:49:37 BingoBoingo: I would like to advance at one of these hearings the position that "bitcoin doesn't much care about you"

02:49:58 asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: like any good story, this one must be 'shown, not told'

02:50:57 asciilifeform: the most educational possible outcome of the circus is: use of bitcoin is banned under penalty of cranked impalement - and continues enthusiastically regardless.

02:51:46 BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Sure. I would like the chance though to add some theater to one of these circuses though. A chance to go on the record seems like it could be fun (even though right nao by being in this channel I am on the most important record atm.)

02:52:24 BingoBoingo: It seems pretty clear though than many people on the NYDFS committee though likely hold more BTC than these witnesses though.

02:53:05 asciilifeform: best propaganda, as always, is 'propaganda by the deed.'

02:53:49 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 19465 @ 0.0008868 = 17.2616 BTC [-]

02:54:33 BingoBoingo: Witnessing at one of these committees and not doing this retarded thing people who imagine themselves public speaking capable do where they simply read prepared statements verbatim could be educative to prevent future Amir Taaki and Charles Lee situations.

02:55:14 asciilifeform: what are the chances of something other than a scriptable muppet being invited ?

02:55:46 BingoBoingo: I wonder if any of these people speaking has ever had to handle a classroom where one has to anticipate any degree of retardation and ignorance from student questions.

02:56:27 BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: I imagine such chances are low. That is why I kind of hold this out as a bit of a dream.

02:56:52 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 7000 @ 0.0008868 = 6.2076 BTC [-]

02:59:23 BingoBoingo: Maybe if Illinois has one of these things I could find myself invited. Illinois is rather similar to NY. Both States are giant wastland with Giant cities occupying a small portion of the waste.

03:00:26 BingoBoingo: Maybe the biggest difference comes from settlers in Illinois having become victims of a native joke and naming Chicago after the region's natural onion stink.

03:03:59 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 21797 @ 0.00088561 = 19.3036 BTC [-] {2}

03:06:42 BingoBoingo: My big complaint about these hearings is that the only thing close to "I don't know how your assumptions could be so broken that you describe reality with such retarded lenses" seems to be coming out of the fucking regulators on the dias.

03:15:39 BingoBoingo: mike_c: Being 10 minutes out from catching up with the Day's proceedings I imagine Odesk will probably be too slow and too shitty (the second point is never a question with Odesk)

03:16:31 mike_c: you might be surprised. i've hired some odeskers for transcribing before and it worked pretty well. hit and miss though i'm sure.

03:17:57 BingoBoingo: Maybe my world has been small but I have never seen quality work transcibing done by those who are not extremely poor and brown or the other extreme which is incredibly professional court reporters.

03:18:26 mike_c: i'm sure they were poor. i did not pay much.

03:20:15 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [AM1] 1 @ 0.43399989 BTC [+]

03:20:41 BingoBoingo: Poor isn't necessarily the greatest problem maybe. Probably desperation might be bigger.

03:21:05 BingoBoingo: THere's a bit of overlap here that makes the right attribute hard to sus out.

03:21:32 asciilifeform: gonna be tricky to hire these folks for speech transcription once they start mining SlaveCoin.

03:23:49 asciilifeform: (a SlaveCoin would, hypothetically, do to human labour what bitcoin did to computing power)

03:24:37 BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Bodypart coins see so simpler though. Value through removing value.

03:26:21 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [NEOBEE] 40 @ 0.0028499 = 0.114 BTC [+]

03:27:30 asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: complicated. people would plunder every graveyard they can find before selling their own parts.

03:28:19 BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Bag of preservative with integrating cutting mechanism.

03:28:53 asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: reminds me of an ancient chinese weapon i once read of

03:28:58 asciilifeform: a 'field guillotine'

03:29:21 asciilifeform: sack, attached to a spring-loaded gadget reminiscent of a camera aperture.

03:29:46 BingoBoingo: Kind of what I imagined. Dunno how many ways there are to imagine such a thing though.

03:29:52 asciilifeform: two leap upon the victim, hold him down, while a third operates the snipper.

03:30:04 asciilifeform: then present head to buyer.

03:39:29 BingoBoingo: Dunno how many recyclable parts are actually present in the head though.

11:10:36 mircea_popescu: dude mpoe-pr brings out the best in people.

11:14:09 BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: Prollu because this time she isn't shitting of their favored scams?

11:14:20 mircea_popescu: now that may be.

11:14:28 mircea_popescu: shittingb on them > shitting on their fav scam of the time.

11:14:36 mircea_popescu: at least themselves, they know that sucks.

11:28:21 mircea_popescu: "Furthermore, notice that a winning bet of .011 returns less than the bet itself (despite its weight), if you even happen to get it. Something is clearly seriously wrong with that guy!! It would be nice if someone were to hack him (and all companies industrializing/profiting off the bitcoin with expensive rigs) and donate the bitcoins to charity (bitcoin100 or etc)."

11:28:26 mircea_popescu: check out the revolutionary minded scum.

11:28:55 mircea_popescu: this is the reason i do not wish to live in a world without opression, and this is why bullshit like "social justice" is outright immoral.

11:29:12 mircea_popescu: some people should be oppressed, and currently are not oppressed nearly enough.

11:30:16 mircea_popescu: punkman obviously, twitter and dns are shady services open to hackers and drug dealing.

11:30:51 punkman: I like that it still takes a few phone calls to steal whatever

11:31:15 punkman: nice domain you got there, shame you are not using it

11:31:18 punkman: I'll just take it

11:31:55 BingoBoingo: punkman: Amazing how GPG could have prevented that disaster.

11:32:29 jurov: or at least 2FA. not the backdoored google kind

11:32:31 punkman: BingoBoingo: well not if they just change your key when you call them

11:32:39 mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo amazing how if you don't offer people any way to change their account they'll be unhappy.

11:32:39 assbot: AMAZING COMPANY!

11:32:49 mircea_popescu: this is the reason why, however.

11:33:31 BingoBoingo: punkman: No one gets to change keys though unless they can sign the change with a still older key of theirs.

11:34:09 punkman: BingoBoingo: of course they do, "hey guys dog ate my key, can I change to this new one?" "ok"

11:35:05 BingoBoingo: punkman: And you revoke it by shear number of keys you exclusively control, or your identity is essentially dead. Not lost. Dead.

11:35:17 mircea_popescu: punkman people totally misunderstanding what customer service is.

11:36:23 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 23665 @ 0.00088479 = 20.9386 BTC [+] {2}

11:36:23 punkman: mircea_popescu: what customer service?

11:36:31 punkman: they got too many users to give a fuck

11:37:23 mircea_popescu: well yes, customer service : hire a bunch of veggies to go "yes sir, sure sir, can do sir" to anyone walking in

11:37:26 mircea_popescu: regardless of anything

11:37:45 punkman: and they call it "live" support.

11:38:04 punkman: even if all they do is write an internal support ticket on your behalf

11:38:59 mircea_popescu: the test cheating mentality : they aren't trying to deliver, they just try to hack into your measures and make it seem like they do.

11:39:06 punkman: said message being "mr manager, dear customer says problem"

11:39:14 mircea_popescu: like, you imagine that talking to someone is more likely to resolve anything ? fine, they'll train dogs to talk to you.

11:39:58 mircea_popescu: hacking is a much larger part of corporate culture than corporations willingly admit, even to themselves.

11:40:19 mircea_popescu: the same people who indignantly protest to the judge that random guy "hacked into their computers" just spent the entire day trying to hack their customers.

11:40:49 nubbins`: "can we disable the user's back button?"

11:41:02 mircea_popescu: yexactly.

11:42:16 nubbins`: fun fact, i once refused to make a code change on moral grounds

11:42:29 mircea_popescu: the amusing part, of course, being that cheating ACTUALLY IS being clever, but only IN SOME CONDITIONS.

11:42:37 nubbins`: ^

11:42:44 mircea_popescu: by completely abandoning a critical review of those conditions, and instead going with formalisms, like

11:42:51 mircea_popescu: "cheating X way good, cheating Y way bad"

11:42:59 mircea_popescu: the results are appaling.

11:43:35 mircea_popescu: this situation exactly mirrors the situation in speech, where people imagine "being nice" or "polite" consists of never using word X, such as nigger or fucktard, rather than, you know, actually being nice/polite/whatever

11:43:40 mircea_popescu: the results being again appaling.

11:44:32 nubbins`: being "professional"

11:44:37 mircea_popescu: myeah.

11:44:47 nubbins`: "where did this $9t go?" "we currently don't have that information until we finish our review" etc

11:44:58 mircea_popescu: "professional" is "guy in a suit". pure cargo cultism.

11:45:08 nubbins`: i was ruminating on this the other day

11:45:16 nubbins`: HOW CAN HE KNOW BUSINESS

11:45:21 nubbins`: HE WEARS NOT THE UNIFORM

11:45:38 nubbins`: strange creatures, humans

11:45:42 mircea_popescu: the obnoxious part is that i wear suits. always have. i was a highscooler with a three piece suit.

11:46:02 mircea_popescu: i happen to like them. but wtf is with all these weasels!

11:47:30 nubbins`: flapping your face = doing business

11:47:35 punkman: I like this: "being friendly: looking out for your interests. being polite: obeying social decorum."

11:47:48 mircea_popescu: lol where's that from ?

11:47:48 punkman: being polite is useless mostly

11:48:03 nubbins`: ^ this shows a fundamental misunderstanding of human nature

11:49:26 punkman: mircea_popescu: not sure I got it from here, but google says: http://sebastianmarshall.com/friendliness-and-politeness

11:50:46 nubbins`: being friendly: having a lel. being polite: inviting others to have a lel.

11:51:14 mircea_popescu: btw, if anyone wants to see me with a fro... http://fraudsters.com/2011/fototeca-de-haur/ i just dug it up

11:51:38 nubbins`: sebastian marshall had a lel writing that, and we had a lel reading it

11:51:52 nubbins`: we are friendly and he is polite!

11:52:13 punkman: that's a good fro

11:52:14 mircea_popescu: im not friendly! who is this guy

11:53:42 nubbins`: you're downright amicable. don't kid yourself

11:54:00 mircea_popescu: lol

11:54:20 nubbins`: http://fraudsters.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/12/eu-tinar-8.jpg

11:54:31 nubbins`: "where are his arms? why is a laptop hanging from his belt?"

11:54:34 nubbins`: <- no coffee yet

11:55:05 mircea_popescu: lol

11:55:16 mircea_popescu: laptop utility belt, now that's an idea.

11:55:30 mircea_popescu: and speaking of ideas, i can't believe nobody invented the spots solarium yet.

11:55:44 mircea_popescu: you could have the light concentrate in particular places, make the girls look like leopards naturally.

11:55:51 mircea_popescu: i bet you there's good money in that.

11:56:02 nubbins`: mottled skin looks diseased

11:56:11 mircea_popescu: not if the spots are large enough

11:56:26 mircea_popescu: if they're say 2x2 to 3x5 or so they look... you know, like a leopard

11:57:18 nubbins`: http://www.truehealthclinic.org/images/vitiligo_c_p_BEFORE.jpg

11:57:27 nubbins`: yep, majestic hunter

11:57:55 nubbins`: you'd need to keep tanning the same spots too, so you'd end up with your skin prematurely aged in certain areas

11:57:56 punkman: you could take a vinyl body suit and cut some holes, wouldn't be very comfortable to tan in

11:58:11 nubbins`: wrinkle spots by age 30

11:58:24 mircea_popescu: you just get one burn-in session

11:58:30 mircea_popescu: then come back next year for a new configuration

11:58:41 nubbins`: http://radiantskinclinic.com/resources/wp-content/uploads/2006/07/Skin_Lightening_Category.jpg

11:58:46 mircea_popescu: i guess this is why, gotta keep changing the machines

12:08:21 mircea_popescu: from cnn right after the O speech last night: I think I?ve said before that I think a speech by Barack Obama is a lot like sex. The worst there ever was is still excellent, and I thought he gave a very competent performance tonight?

12:08:31 mircea_popescu: dude, poor brejnev. he never had such fluffers.

12:13:05 BingoBoingo: The wonders or beauracracy: Fill out the form or devise your own identical form http://www.slate.com/articles/news_and_politics/jurisprudence/2014/01/little_sisters_contraception_mandate_case_it_s_about_more_than_just_a_form.html

12:17:37 mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo that entire dispute is pretty much a testament to how fundamentally unworkable the system has become

12:17:44 mircea_popescu: can you explain to me what it's about ?

12:18:01 mircea_popescu: i mean... i don't get it, i consider myself educated and so forth but i can't come to a conclusion

12:19:18 truffles: an intellectual but not a genius :D

12:19:24 mircea_popescu: are they saying "we don't have to sign something we don't want to sign because jesus" ? is it mopre like "we don't want to say anything definite about abortion in writing because we can't grok the consequences" ?

12:19:53 mircea_popescu: it half reads like "forms make baby jesus cry" tbh.

12:19:59 BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: Basically some group had a religious objection to a form (they were nuns) . They pretested the need to complete the form in court. The court said well, you don't need to do that form, but you can fill out this identical form we imagineered or produce your own identical form. (the form relating to some Obamacar Birth Control thing)

12:20:08 mircea_popescu: no i know the generalities.

12:20:23 mircea_popescu: but WHY did they protestg, what's being objected to exactly ?

12:21:15 BingoBoingo: Well, that they have to fill out a form to not cover birth control for their employees.

12:21:37 BingoBoingo: Basically there being a form at all seems to actually make Baby Jesus cry was their argument.

12:21:59 BingoBoingo: Not that they had to cover the birth control, but that there was a form.

12:21:59 mircea_popescu: and how's a court supposed to rule on that ?

12:22:03 mircea_popescu: they need the fucking rota.

12:22:19 kakobrekla: they checked for tears

12:27:45 BingoBoingo: I am sad to announce that I don't want to bet on this superbowl. When the most interesting player is the fucking underdog's cornerback... I'm out.

12:28:23 mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo you know, i burned a lot of cycles on the subject of why the fuck sports bets are faring so poorly on bitbet.

12:28:26 truffles: betting on sports is like watching money leave pocket

12:28:47 kakobrekla: >Furthermore, notice that a winning bet of .011 returns less than the bet itself (despite its weight), if you even happen to get it.

12:28:48 mircea_popescu: the obvious explanation, and perhaps the likely one, is that bitbet just isn't particularly central in the betting space.

12:28:49 kakobrekla: LMAO

12:28:55 BingoBoingo: truffles: I'm net up on the past year

12:29:08 kakobrekla: "Hi, im a brick, i have opinions."

12:29:10 truffles: sample size 1 year

12:29:15 BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: Prolly bitbet isn lagging on sports because it is too good at finance

12:29:17 mircea_popescu: however, it may also be that SPORTS BETTING isn't central. or in other words : the focus on advertising, scandal and bullshit, as wel las changing social mores and expectations have pretty much killed that model.

12:29:25 truffles: lemme know in 3 or more

12:29:34 mircea_popescu: nobody cares anymore about sports, and the bets continue sort-of by inertia, like investment in yahoo continues.

12:29:52 Duffer1: MP or there's not enough sports book being made to attract a betting crowd

12:30:14 mircea_popescu: so in that theory, they will exist in old venues (like days ago someone mentioned old style phone service that's still continued . to the death of the captive customer)

12:30:16 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [AM100] 50 @ 0.00437075 = 0.2185 BTC [+] {5}

12:30:19 mircea_popescu: but in new venues it ain't happening.

12:30:32 mircea_popescu: Duffer1 nowhere ?

12:30:34 BingoBoingo: Well, of course it is inertia. It also pulls the sports bettors to more dangerous venues that offer lines on as many competitions as possible, as opposed to safe ole bitbet that only tries to offer profitable competitions

12:31:07 BingoBoingo: Basically Bitbet is too responsible to attract sports bettors.

12:31:13 mircea_popescu: so perhaps a correct model could be, "sports betting consists of people who lived in the 70s, had fun with bets in the 70s, continuing to do what they did then, where they did it then"

12:31:17 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [AM1] 10 @ 0.43099999 = 4.31 BTC [+]

12:31:40 mircea_popescu: if that's the case, a start-up hoping to get that market on a new model would be kinda doomed. the paying customer is too old to move and the young customer does not exist.

12:32:10 BingoBoingo: Prolly and nao where it interesects with bitcoin includes you kids who wish they were in the 70's so they could sync iPods on their PDP-11

12:32:15 mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo but there are plenty of insane bets on bitbet

12:32:18 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [AM1] 20 @ 0.43624848 = 8.725 BTC [+] {6}

12:32:44 ThickAsThieves: [07:25] <mircea_popescu> you buncha commies. you redistributed it did you <<< There is no escape from decentralization, chaos is nature after all!

12:32:46 mircea_popescu: perhaps not the right kind of insane.

12:32:51 BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: Right, but I imagine most sports bettors never had the money to make a dent in the 2B difficulty bet.

12:33:03 Duffer1: bets not being created doesn't necessarily mean lack of interest in betting with bitcoin, if there was a specific section dedicated to live odds sports book it just might attract more people

12:33:47 BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: As far as football this year goes though, the NFL has had one on its most boring years in history.

12:33:48 Duffer1: i wouldn't know, just a thought ^.^

12:33:58 mircea_popescu: the problem is this : other than the intrinsic unfairness to the bettors of the line model, it also requires VERY highly skilled people working for the hgouse, and non stop.

12:34:04 mircea_popescu: you can't afford to pay for these without volume.

12:36:24 herbijudlestoids: moral of the story: just like all other businesses, an appropriate level of investment is required to have a successful outcome

12:36:37 BingoBoingo: I mean the people who claim to bitcoin sportsbet seem to overlap with the BTC poker people

12:36:41 ThickAsThieves: they dont even own bitcoins

12:36:44 mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves this is factual. the question of interest however, is if such an audience even exists, and other such things.

12:37:09 truffles: betting site but doesnt know market hmmm

12:37:20 mircea_popescu: truffles nobody knows the market. some people admit to it.

12:37:30 herbijudlestoids: ThickAsThieves: if you offered them a betting model that has a lower house commission, etc they might be very interested

12:37:41 ThickAsThieves: it's like trying to sell truffles at a Patriots game

12:37:45 mircea_popescu: herbijudlestoids what's the house comission on line betting normally ? 2-5% ?

12:37:51 ThickAsThieves: theyll be like eww mushrooms!

12:37:52 herbijudlestoids: yea about that

12:37:53 truffles: haha

12:37:56 mircea_popescu: bitbet does 1%

12:38:10 herbijudlestoids: but is there good game coverage and high liquidity?

12:38:13 mircea_popescu: the difference to your risk of ruin between 1 and 4% is HUGE

12:38:20 herbijudlestoids: yep

12:38:24 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [AM100] 58 @ 0.00438319 = 0.2542 BTC [+] {4}

12:38:25 mircea_popescu: it has more liquidity than vegas and no coverage at all

12:38:29 mircea_popescu: in spite of coverage being self-serve.

12:38:38 herbijudlestoids: so then i would posit its simply a matter of marketing

12:38:42 mircea_popescu: bitbet actually PAYS 100 dollars for every bet made, yet people don't make sports bets.

12:38:47 herbijudlestoids: did anyone allocate $500,000 or $1,000,000 to marketing?

12:38:59 mircea_popescu: it would seem so, but i have suspicions that it's simply a question of there not being a market.

12:39:05 herbijudlestoids: hmm

12:39:11 ThickAsThieves: yeah

12:39:16 mircea_popescu: which is a question that has to be resolved bfore i throw money at marketing people.

12:39:16 chetty: The federal agency charged with helping consumers make better financial decisions is facing questions about how it has managed its own money.

12:39:21 mircea_popescu: i have no doubt they can spend it.

12:39:21 ThickAsThieves: dont go marketing truffles to football fans

12:39:31 mircea_popescu: ahahaha chetty that's gold

12:39:55 mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves obviously more research is needed here. for one thing, how do we even know they're truffles.

12:39:59 herbijudlestoids: the other option is ramp the entry costs and target high net worth betters

12:40:07 mircea_popescu: just cause we think we're pretty cool ?

12:40:24 herbijudlestoids: offer the 1% rate as a high net worth perk

12:40:26 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [AM1] 5 @ 0.51677618 = 2.5839 BTC [+]

12:40:27 mircea_popescu: herbijudlestoids i would love to target high net work bettors, strictly to hear why they think it sucks.

12:40:29 ThickAsThieves: well what is the most popular form of sports betting, its that intrade shares shit right?

12:40:40 mircea_popescu: i don't have a book. anyone has/knows someone with a large old style book ?

12:40:47 herbijudlestoids: many moons ago i used to work as an ops guy for a large cable tv company

12:40:56 BingoBoingo: You know for someone who uses shady forum advertised sports books quite a bit... I prolly ought to look harder at who runs them.

12:40:59 mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves intrade is ded. not sure if popular tbh, but definitely dead.

12:41:06 herbijudlestoids: and one of the security guards happened to be extremely well off, but he worked as a guard to keep the tax offic eoff his back

12:41:17 mircea_popescu: ha.

12:41:24 herbijudlestoids: he owned a couple of horses and was relatively well known with the sydney horse racing community

12:41:51 herbijudlestoids: one of my friends has my old job, ill ask him if the dude still works there

12:42:03 herbijudlestoids: he *always* used to hassle me about making him an algo to arb the different online markets

12:42:06 ThickAsThieves: just buy a biz that already has sports penetration

12:42:11 herbijudlestoids: ^

12:42:26 mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves yes, but i can't do that while random fuckwits keep smoking pot and getting arrested.

12:42:47 ThickAsThieves: is that really you talking?

12:42:48 mircea_popescu: well, what ?

12:43:10 mircea_popescu: you want me to do an acquisition over irc ?

12:43:14 ThickAsThieves: lol

12:43:21 mircea_popescu: i'll need a bank, what.

12:43:42 BingoBoingo: I hear Seattle sports teams are cheap

12:43:46 mircea_popescu: i should leverage-buyout the horseshoe.

12:43:53 ThickAsThieves: ok new plan

12:43:57 mircea_popescu: then i'd have their book, go through the past 20 years, talk to everyone.

12:43:58 ThickAsThieves: hire the manager

12:44:07 mircea_popescu: the manager is probably under a contract.

12:44:08 ThickAsThieves: that runs the successful sports biz

12:44:14 BingoBoingo: The Mariners might be 10K BTC this year and 1 K BTC next year

12:46:24 herbijudlestoids: i thought i knew someone in online sports advertising but it was music and the business has been sold to VICE anyway

12:46:24 ThickAsThieves: sports bettings seems like such a chore, gawd

12:46:32 mircea_popescu: it is a fucking chore.

12:46:49 mircea_popescu: buncha old farts who think themselves cutting edge because they sorta-can read the email their granddaughter sends

12:46:50 BingoBoingo: ThickAsThieves: Betting is a chore. I could not imagin the pain of running a venture.

12:47:07 mircea_popescu: except they miss about half the pics, like say the drunken shots of her getting shagged in front of the courthouse.

12:47:09 ThickAsThieves: nah sports is a whole other level of pain

12:47:19 herbijudlestoids: mircea_popescu: what about if instead of a bank

12:47:28 herbijudlestoids: you contacted one of the hedge funds that deals in bitcoins

12:47:35 herbijudlestoids: and asked them to do the accq?

12:47:45 mircea_popescu: the ones that failed to get listed on mpex and imagine they're into bitcoin ?

12:47:58 mircea_popescu: yeah, this sounds promising. and i'll have to do what, explain to them what they're doing wrong ?

12:48:06 herbijudlestoids: yeah, what do you care, you just need a funnel right?

12:49:03 mircea_popescu: maybe so.

12:49:04 ThickAsThieves: why try to be something youre not

12:49:22 ThickAsThieves: exploit something you can destroy at instead

12:50:04 mircea_popescu: because i don't wish to destroy, i wish to exist. bitcoin is essential to this, and so here i am doing things i don't particularly wish to do on their own,

12:50:15 mircea_popescu: so that this thing may ruin the faces and lives of people i don't like.

14:21:18 mircea_popescu: so that whole discussion is extra funny to me

14:21:22 BingoBoingo: herbijudlestoids: No need to own a still. Time spent operating a hypothical or alleged still could be better spent on other ventures.

14:21:30 herbijudlestoids: i work in large scale IaaS and its the same, you gotta educate everyone

14:21:57 ThickAsThieves: it gets extra fucked up too,

14:22:10 ThickAsThieves: in that they are soo persistent

14:22:14 ThickAsThieves: you start to wonder if they are right

14:22:28 ThickAsThieves: and whether the whole thing is a joke

14:22:33 ThickAsThieves: (it kinda is)

14:22:35 herbijudlestoids: justuwait, the next gen kiddies will know all our secrets by the time theyre 12 and work for minimum wage to do the same thing

14:22:46 mircea_popescu: this is starting to sound a little too much like popular bitcoin finance.

14:23:06 mircea_popescu: herbijudlestoids what rattles me is this : how can you sit there and propose democracy as anything but a horror, with this experience ?

14:23:30 ThickAsThieves: i also began to feel guilty manipulating customers to not shoot themselves

14:23:30 herbijudlestoids: mircea_popescu: i think there is a lot to be said for systems with high friction

14:23:32 BingoBoingo: Didn't even have to read Plato

14:23:38 mircea_popescu: why would you want more democracy at all, or any democracy whatsoever in anything you care about at all ?

14:23:47 ThickAsThieves: you dont

14:23:51 mircea_popescu: well i don't.

14:24:04 ThickAsThieves: thats the big joke in entering the graphic design field

14:24:16 ThickAsThieves: kids get into it to express their talent

14:24:16 mircea_popescu: god forbid they start making democracy steak.

14:24:20 herbijudlestoids: complex systems "complicate away" friction and make the system less robust

14:24:25 herbijudlestoids: depart from equilibrium

14:24:27 ThickAsThieves: but that job is all about doing what everyone else ssays

14:24:34 herbijudlestoids: simple systems are robust and do not depart from equilibrium

14:24:38 mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves this is a good point actualy.

14:24:45 herbijudlestoids: easiest way to ensure robustness is friction

14:24:46 mircea_popescu: herbijudlestoids so make them simple rather than open.

14:25:00 ThickAsThieves: then,

14:25:10 ThickAsThieves: even if you make it, to be, say, a Creative Director

14:25:18 ThickAsThieves: you learn that all your designers hate you

14:25:27 ThickAsThieves: for trying to finaly get your way

14:25:27 lippoper: .bait to save the day

14:25:28 ozbot: http://31.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m2l566VzXH1r21xm5o1_500.jpg

14:25:33 mircea_popescu: this is why you make your designers work nude and spank them occasionally.

14:25:44 mircea_popescu: then they still hate you but a) you're having fun and b) they also love you.

14:26:04 ThickAsThieves: well

14:26:07 ThickAsThieves: even when you do get one

14:26:10 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [AM1] 1 @ 0.6345 BTC [+]

14:26:17 ThickAsThieves: properly obedient

14:26:21 mircea_popescu: that was the lousiest bait ever.

14:26:24 mircea_popescu: ozbot you're fired.

14:26:25 ThickAsThieves: they leave after a year or two

14:26:41 mircea_popescu: why would they leave ?!

14:26:52 ThickAsThieves: grass is greener

14:27:05 ThickAsThieves: careers

14:27:06 ThickAsThieves: etc

14:27:07 mircea_popescu: how could grass be greener ?

14:27:10 herbijudlestoids: because as it turns out, not *all* jobs are about doing what everyone else says and if youve got talent you can command those jobs

14:27:11 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [AM1] 1 @ 0.6345 BTC [+]

14:27:17 mircea_popescu: if you don't have the greenest grass wtf are you doing

14:27:42 ThickAsThieves: i had one girl that left to go work with all girls

14:27:43 lippoper: agreed.

14:27:48 ThickAsThieves: i offered to pat more

14:28:02 ThickAsThieves: she said "my boyfriend told me not to accepts"

14:28:05 ThickAsThieves: accept*

14:28:05 lippoper: ok you're truly fired

14:29:06 mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves you should have paid her to dump her bf.

14:29:46 davout: yay, assets became SFW again

14:29:51 herbijudlestoids: mircea_popescu: maybe democracy isnt what i mean. i want more information to be freely available so those who are interested in it can use it to make informed decisions. to "level the playing field"

14:29:58 ThickAsThieves: all my programmers seemed to have insecurity issues

14:30:04 ThickAsThieves: or drinking problems

14:30:09 herbijudlestoids: for example, i have capital

14:30:14 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [AM1] 4 @ 0.6345 = 2.538 BTC [+]

14:30:20 ThickAsThieves: good help is hard to find i guess

14:30:23 herbijudlestoids: but if i cant efficiently allocate it then i wont allocate it to anything but cash and gold since im risk averse

14:30:29 mircea_popescu: herbijudlestoids there's a subtle point involved here : back when information cost money you had a bunch of ignoramuses clearly labeled as such and lots of educated people.

14:30:42 mircea_popescu: in the wake of wikipedia you have strictly ignoramuses with delusions of education

14:30:44 herbijudlestoids: really?

14:30:51 mircea_popescu: and a few old people left over. once they die that's it.

14:30:55 asciilifeform: anybody catch this:

14:30:57 ozbot: Predator Drone Sends North Dakota Man to Jail - Forbes

14:30:57 herbijudlestoids: so economists used to be better at predicting the economy and now they suck?

14:31:07 herbijudlestoids: or economists have always sucked at predicting the economy and now we know it

14:31:09 ThickAsThieves: predicting, lol

14:31:21 herbijudlestoids: excuse my colloquialism

14:31:24 mircea_popescu: herbijudlestoids if you take the whole predictive discourse of economy in 1913 and compare to 2013

14:31:25 herbijudlestoids: forecast

14:31:30 mircea_popescu: you will find a marked decline in the average quality.

14:31:33 davout: wouldn't "forecasting" be a better match?

14:31:58 mircea_popescu: this is BECAUSE a democratic view to specialist fields is harmful for everyone involved :

14:32:05 mircea_popescu: the idiots, the professionals, society at large.

14:32:08 herbijudlestoids: mircea_popescu: as someone who actually sits on SSRN in his free time reading research old and new i kind of disagree

14:32:25 mircea_popescu: well perhaps my view is wrong.

14:32:42 mircea_popescu: maybe someone takes the time to settle this.

14:32:53 herbijudlestoids: i dunno about your view but i am just saying predictive discourse was worse in 1913 than now

14:32:58 mircea_popescu: tho it's a huge task, you can't even read all the deluge of today

14:32:59 BingoBoingo: herbijudlestoids: Maybe subscribe to some more interesting stuff than SSRN

14:33:08 mircea_popescu: herbijudlestoids worse, in what measure ?

14:33:20 ThickAsThieves: is it really a prediction if it was the plan all along?

14:33:26 herbijudlestoids: in resolution, accuracy, understanding, etc

14:33:42 mircea_popescu: i strictly mean, average quality went down, in the sense the understanding displayed dwindled. not in the sense better predictions were done

14:34:21 herbijudlestoids: BingoBoingo: plenty of interesting stuff from hedge funds and instos goes up there as working papers daily ;)

14:34:23 mircea_popescu: (the reason you'll never have better predictions is modelled in http://fraudsters.com/2012/anonimity-or-the-urban-versus-rural-dispute/

14:34:50 mircea_popescu: the part dealing with why technology can't help the police)

14:35:51 ThickAsThieves: "OK guys, everyone processed these stellar news? Let's be optimistic that the driest patch is over, esp. communications-wise. Keep in mind though, the dividends won't rise until April and there still may be weeks of silence where friedcat fixes the last problems"

14:39:43 mircea_popescu: the notion that the imperial household is in any way limited wasn't doing too well over there anyway.

14:41:09 herbijudlestoids: any chance of having assbot broadcasting in another chan with mode +q set so the logger i setup only stores the orders?

14:41:33 mircea_popescu: was it #bitcoin-assets-trades ?

14:41:45 nubbins`: yes

14:43:24 mircea_popescu: so 9bn on march is 8:1

14:43:48 mircea_popescu: what good are 3Gh/W chips at 3 dollars each in that context ?

14:45:41 nubbins`: unless you actually did take lsd

14:45:50 mircea_popescu: nubbins` it's like the SAT, except to even show on the scale in s7 you need about 98% on the sat.

14:45:52 nubbins`: in which case the crash and burn would be more like a smouldering fire

14:46:22 mircea_popescu: besides, it costs plenty to even take.

14:54:30 mircea_popescu: nubbins` i guess it depends whose.

14:54:58 nubbins`: that's like almost half a house!

14:55:51 nubbins`: "sez here you lost an incredible amount of money to some website. do you know who runs it?" "some guy named doug, i think"

14:56:33 herbijudlestoids: in aus the house price to avg salary ratio is double the US, so 100BTC is like, 20% at best for the value of a house here :P

14:57:03 mircea_popescu: this would imply aussies avgt salary is 2.5x us

14:57:23 herbijudlestoids: mircea_popescu: GDP/capits is 70k PP USD in AUS and about 49k PPUSD in AUS

14:57:42 mircea_popescu: wait wut ?

14:57:53 herbijudlestoids: wut wut

14:57:59 mircea_popescu: which is it, 70k or 49k ?

14:58:06 mircea_popescu: schroedingaustralia ?

14:58:12 herbijudlestoids: err sorry lol 49k in US

14:58:25 mircea_popescu: gdp/capita is a poor measure of salaries, anyway.

14:58:35 herbijudlestoids: but in both cases very close to the avg salary

14:58:45 nubbins`: well, what's in an average

14:58:57 mircea_popescu: ro gdp/capita is like 8k. average salary is like 500, minimum wage is a whopping 150 dollars.

14:59:00 nubbins`: know the average income of the city bill gates lives?

14:59:05 herbijudlestoids: some form of aggregate understanding?

14:59:20 nubbins`: s/understanding/data

14:59:27 mircea_popescu: like 2/3 of the population makes that minimum wage.

15:02:05 herbijudlestoids: just checked to confirm US avg salary is $52k USD and AUS avg salary is $73k AUD, evens out to be about 50/70 on a PP basis

15:03:13 mircea_popescu: point remains, there is a LOT of variance in both housing prices and salaries in the us.

15:03:30 mircea_popescu: the "half a house" comment probably references older discussions re the housing market in central ohio

15:03:52 nubbins`: nah just going on my own house

15:04:06 nubbins`: only one person who regulars this chan cares about central ohio ;p

15:04:33 ThickAsThieves: it's like $2800 for 1000sqft in San Francisco and $800/mo for a 1700sqft house in north Florida

15:04:50 nubbins`: so many people from around here own houses in florida now

15:05:59 nubbins`: imagine, the descendants of fishmongers from what is historically canada's poorest province, scooping up florida real estate like monopoly properties

15:06:07 nubbins`: not sure if it says more about here or there

15:07:05 mircea_popescu: The ?True Love Tester? bra can?t be masterfully unhooked by some skeevy player who hit on the wearer at a club. No, this bra only comes undone when sensors embedded inside it that are connected wirelessly to a smartphone app detect a particular heart rate

15:07:09 mircea_popescu: basically... it's the rape bra.

15:07:30 nubbins`: facelamp

15:07:56 nubbins`: guess it's not for the gym either

15:08:06 nubbins`: actually the reverse would be great for the gym

15:08:07 herbijudlestoids: ok its not double

15:08:07 mircea_popescu: get on the stairmaster, tits go out

15:08:10 nubbins`: keep your heart rate up OR ELSE

15:08:14 herbijudlestoids: the house price to income in aus is about 4 atm and about 3 in the US

15:08:19 mircea_popescu: dude that's a gread idea

15:08:47 nubbins`: it's like the pay toilets in korea, you stop feeding coins and the door pops open

15:08:53 mircea_popescu: perhaps make some cockrings with electricity too.

15:14:26 ThickAsThieves: i wanna share a song i just finished, but have no one to share with

15:14:44 mircea_popescu: o.o

15:15:18 nubbins`: put it on soundcloud and let the world hear

15:17:10 ThickAsThieves: i did the music/mix/production

15:17:13 nubbins`: mircea_popescu: regarding s.mg forums/wikis/etc, the deal is one cannot simultaneously use game assets and accept payment?

15:17:18 ThickAsThieves: a local does the raps

15:18:41 mircea_popescu: nubbins` yea

15:19:22 nubbins`: does that extend to likenesses of assets or just the originals?

15:19:52 nubbins`: say, a rendition of creature x

15:20:06 mircea_popescu: uh

15:20:16 mircea_popescu: what are you trying to do, let's start at that end

15:20:57 nubbins`: haha.

15:21:07 nubbins`: make a forum

15:21:44 nubbins`: specifically, one with some sort of in-game beastie incorporated into the logo

15:21:59 mircea_popescu: so enjoy.

15:22:11 nubbins`: lovely

15:22:33 nubbins`: not a lot to discuss yet, but figured it'd be nice to have something in place for when there is

15:22:33 mircea_popescu: just don't start with any thermos bs.

15:22:58 nubbins`: well i was thinking about banning everyone by default

15:23:16 mircea_popescu: lol

15:23:40 nubbins`: (srsly)

15:24:03 nubbins`: hence the original question ;D

15:24:20 mircea_popescu: well then if you ban everyone what do i care ? i'll never know.

15:24:50 nubbins`: you'd probably get an honorary membership

15:24:54 nubbins`: i mean, uh, un-baning

15:24:58 nubbins`: *banning

15:25:20 mircea_popescu: so what exactly aren;t you saying ?

15:25:41 nubbins`: it's a pay forum

15:25:51 mircea_popescu: well no, you can't do that.

15:25:57 nubbins`: aha

15:26:10 mircea_popescu: why do you want to make a pay forum anyway

15:26:20 nubbins`: (a) to cover costs and (b) to get paid

15:26:44 nubbins`: justifiable if the content is there

15:26:57 nubbins`: for instance, gigposters.com forums costs $20/year for "premium" membership

15:27:14 nubbins`: not required, but you're mercilessly browbeaten if you leech too much good advice without buying one.

15:27:50 nubbins`: and the real nice stuff, like plans for equipment, is hidden inside the premium members subforum

15:28:11 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [AM1] 2 @ 0.63 = 1.26 BTC [-]

15:28:16 mircea_popescu: but listen, if what you want is to get paid, you should do something else than a forum

15:28:24 mircea_popescu: forums are god awful for this purpose. do something that pays.

15:28:55 azi`: so weird.. if you want to withdraw funds from mtgox and send them to another BTC you are faced with "invalid BTC address" error multiple times and it only works after a random amount of "submit clicks..

15:29:04 azi`: i am wondering if they use this to stall funds on the site...

15:29:38 azi`: am I just paranoid?

15:29:39 nubbins`: but that aside, i can't see myself running a free-for-all forum

15:29:47 nubbins`: not worth the effort

15:29:48 KRS1: they've done other things like disabled onclick actions when you try to submit a form

15:29:54 nubbins`: even with advertising

15:30:02 azi`: KRS1: hm? what does thatmean

15:30:21 KRS1: they disabled submit buttons in the past

15:30:55 mircea_popescu: nubbins` well that's kinda it, as a general principle. if you want to get paid do something that pays

16:45:58 b0n1: what do you think? The drop at january is much later than the cleaning update, right? Did they clean directly when the cleaner was included in the microsoft update, or did they install the cleaner and trigger them simultaneously at a given time in the middle of january?

18:17:25 mod6: Wile E. Coyote running off cliff without realizing that there is no ground beneath his feet reminds me of U.S. econ.

18:17:52 mod6: hhaha, i dunno. guess he's just too fast.

18:17:56 mircea_popescu: i get it, the socialist mind wants this to be the case. yet... shiut doesn't work that way.

18:18:15 mircea_popescu: irl the coyote eventually fucks up the roadrunner. badly.

18:19:58 mircea_popescu: kinda what got me, you know ? it never fucking won. gets boring to watch it if you know the result aforehand

18:20:47 mod6: true enough. the main attraction is to find out what devious scheme the coyote will attempt and ultimately fail with.

18:21:45 mircea_popescu: suppose no matter what you did, the computer just blinked the screen once. that's it.

18:38:42 ThickAsThieves: all search weight factors would be transparent and customizable

18:39:01 ThickAsThieves: then the engine averages all template weights for a default one

18:39:05 ThickAsThieves: or curates it some

18:39:11 ThickAsThieves: but if yoy make an account

18:39:20 ThickAsThieves: you can de-weight twitter mentions, or such

18:39:35 ThickAsThieves: save custom search templates

You send me the ltc 4. i release you the transfer keys so you can send BTC to your personal wallet that way block chain role is as escrow

18:48:31 mircea_popescu: it's weak.

18:48:36 gecko_x2: what do you think?

18:48:40 gecko_x2: why?

18:48:43 ThickAsThieves: lol

18:48:49 ThickAsThieves: cuz he can change pass again

20:22:05 gecko_x2: jesus fuck 5.6 btc

20:22:14 gecko_x2: is there anything i can do?

20:22:25 punkman: because trading passwords over IM is not an acceptable substitute for the actual blockchain

20:22:41 gecko_x2: but i made a second pass to blockchain

20:23:28 gecko_x2: omg

20:23:35 ThickAsThieves: why didnt you send the coins to another wallet?

20:23:45 ThickAsThieves: that was your second chance

20:23:54 gecko_x2: i neede the private key

20:24:00 ThickAsThieves: lol

20:24:06 gecko_x2: :(

20:24:11 gecko_x2: funny?

20:24:26 ThickAsThieves: almost perfectly

20:24:49 ThickAsThieves: you trollin?

20:25:01 gecko_x2: NO

20:25:06 gecko_x2: god damnit

20:26:28 deadweasel: are you sure?

20:26:46 pankkake: take it as a learning experience, albeit expensive

20:26:49 deadweasel: could be a decent troll. or you might have lyme disease. is your brain swollen?

20:26:57 gecko_x2: what

20:27:09 gecko_x2: i can't login to the blockchain account anymore

20:27:16 gecko_x2: i made a second pass

20:27:21 gecko_x2: how is this possible?

20:27:24 deadweasel: did you use multi-sig?

20:27:34 gecko_x2: i was logged in

20:27:39 deadweasel: so no.

20:27:40 gecko_x2: reated a second password

20:27:47 gecko_x2: created*

20:28:06 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [AM1] 1 @ 0.690122 BTC [+]

20:28:09 gecko_x2: so how can he access the btc?

20:28:24 deadweasel: depends on how stupidly you set up the transaction.

20:28:30 pankkake: what is this second password thing?

20:28:38 deadweasel: the eagle flies at midnight

20:28:50 ThickAsThieves: until the bitcoins are in your own private wallet, you dont have them

20:28:52 pankkake: blochchain.info derives the private key from the password IIRC

20:29:08 ThickAsThieves: that's a constant

20:46:07 ThickAsThieves: assuming youve learned your lesson

23:37:14 kakobrekla: anyway, i thought you went to the liquid markets?

23:37:27 herbijudlestoids: i do, like i said last night, just an idea that came to me then

23:40:27 herbijudlestoids: http://imgur.com/CkJ5kA8 <-- here is a distribution of the overnight tick returns

23:40:27 ozbot: imgur: the simple image sharer

23:40:52 herbijudlestoids: quite an interesting looking formation

23:43:36 kakobrekla: whats the x axis

23:43:54 herbijudlestoids: i log normalise the return between ticks

23:44:03 herbijudlestoids: x axis is the value of those returns

23:44:15 kakobrekla: return between ticks?

23:44:22 kakobrekla: you mean price difference?

23:44:50 herbijudlestoids: its the % return if you had invested in the asset at the tick

23:44:57 herbijudlestoids: (log normalised)

23:45:09 kakobrekla: hm

23:45:20 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [PETA] 4 @ 0.0489999 = 0.196 BTC [+]

23:45:54 herbijudlestoids: its a pretty normal way to break the timeseries down in quantitative analysis, but usually at a lower resloution than per tick

23:46:30 herbijudlestoids: once i build up some data and refine my timestamping etc i will start to record 10 sec data from the ticks and then build all the lower resolutions from that high res feed

23:47:10 herbijudlestoids: so you can see, the distribution of daily returns or, the 10-tick volatility, etc

23:47:31 herbijudlestoids: also would like to figure out if there is a diurnal pattern in the assets

23:48:44 herbijudlestoids: i cant show you some of the other stuff iv grabbed because i didnt timestamp properly and R wont plot it nicely
