00:00:16 dexX7: why do you think this was smart?

00:00:42 skinnkavaj: So he would not get into trouble and can still operate SD

00:01:55 skinnkavaj: I believe we will see more fake sells since it's the best option to clear your name, while still holding on to that money making machine

00:02:09 skinnkavaj: Which is your baby, as an entreprenour

00:03:09 mircea_popescu: this is pretty much nonsense.

00:03:18 mircea_popescu: why not enjoy the credibility of a well run asset ?

00:03:36 skinnkavaj: mircea_popescu: Because of legal problems obviously

00:04:01 mircea_popescu: i dun see what you're talking about, "obviously".

00:04:02 benkay: ;;tslb

00:04:05 gribble: Time since last block: 7 minutes and 27 seconds

00:04:43 skinnkavaj: mircea_popescu: So you think SD is a legal service?

00:05:04 benkay: legal where, skinnkavaj ?

00:05:12 skinnkavaj: In any country of the world

00:05:26 mircea_popescu: dude seriously, stop.

00:05:36 mircea_popescu: there's no such thing as a "legal service". there's illegal stuff, and then there's the rest.

00:05:41 mircea_popescu: there's no "any country in the world"

00:05:50 mircea_popescu: you don't even know how many countries there are, in the world.

00:06:06 skinnkavaj: mircea_popescu: Is this your strategy in the future?

00:06:18 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [PETA] 2 @ 0.07249972 = 0.145 BTC [-] {2}

00:06:23 mircea_popescu: yes, my strategy in the future is to continue to point out obvious nonsense coming my way.

00:06:50 mircea_popescu: who knows, maybe it somehow ends up cutting down on the general nonsense

00:09:45 skinnkavaj: mircea_popescu: We live in a corrupt world you should know that

00:10:06 mircea_popescu: so ?

00:10:37 skinnkavaj: SD is not legal and neither is MPOE, but I love the fact that you are not agreeing with me on that

00:10:53 mircea_popescu: eh your face is not legal.

00:16:15 TestingUnoDosTre: mircea , is bitbet.us legal in every planet in the Milky Way?

00:17:18 skinnkavaj: TestingUnoDosTre: Leave him alone now I think he understood my point and I like his intentions

00:17:30 dexX7: intentions?

00:17:59 TestingUnoDosTre: his evil intergalactic intentions

00:22:39 CheckDavid: Lol

00:22:40 mircea_popescu: someone write the book so 50cent can make a song about the movie based on it

00:22:49 mircea_popescu: then we can quote its wisdom

00:23:23 CheckDavid: How illegal is mpoe?

00:23:30 dexX7: let's ipo the idea

00:23:53 mircea_popescu: s'il egal.

00:26:39 skinnkavaj: mircea_popescu: Try listen for one minute in a clip from this audio book http://open.spotify.com/track/1ydFN3EK0bhqlzjT1cRKxR

00:27:31 ozbot: Facebook feud outside club | Page Six

00:32:10 mircea_popescu: skinnkavaj learning to read spoiled me for audiobooks.

00:32:30 TestingUnoDosTre: is that seriously a 50 cent produced audiobook?

00:36:03 mircea_popescu: "Go search deep for code (for sale) for online gambling sites.

00:36:03 mircea_popescu: The most expensive code packages for gambling sites have the most deceit and advanced algorithms to rip-off the gambling fool and protect the investment of the operator. The very best ones you'll never find for sale, however. These algorithms always sit on top of whatever "edge" the operator decides to take (the "edge" is the part of the tilted table some sites even openly advertise nowadays).

00:36:20 mircea_popescu: there's nothing better than a good conspiraci theorist.

00:37:19 mircea_popescu: bitcoin invented fair gambling, bitbet is a parimutuel implementation, anon forum derp comes to harp about how deceitful "sites" are.

00:37:53 mircea_popescu: i imagine these people followed hercules around augeas' stables complaining about all the mess he's making.

00:39:58 dirt_: amazing

00:39:58 assbot: AMAZING COMPANY!

00:41:58 Mats_cd03: hue hue

00:43:37 ThickAsThieves: "Edmund Moy, the former director of the U.S. Mint who’s become an outspoken proponent of digital currencies, saw a mix of good and bad as well, but ultimately he made two cogent points: first, that this is is a rule, not a law, and there’s a difference, and, two, that it can be changed as circumstances warrant."

00:43:50 ThickAsThieves: what is the exact difference between an IRS rule and a law?

00:46:10 mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves that i get to laugh at you poor sods moar ?

00:46:30 ThickAsThieves: but but

00:46:32 ThickAsThieves: halp

00:46:41 mircea_popescu: lol

00:46:58 mircea_popescu: a rule you can have overturned by arguing more things before the supreme court than if it were a law.

00:47:08 mircea_popescu: because congress does have legislative discretion, but agencies do not.

00:47:24 mircea_popescu: we're talking a decade and a hundred million in either case.

00:47:33 mike_c: most of the IRS code is law, but not the btc part. http://docs.law.gwu.edu/facweb/jsiegel/Personal/taxes/code.htm

00:47:39 ThickAsThieves: so you must break the rule to even attempt to learn it's definition?

00:47:47 ThickAsThieves: its*

00:47:59 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 8800 @ 0.00093954 = 8.268 BTC [-]

00:48:10 ThickAsThieves: or at least "test" its definition

00:48:14 mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves no, you don't have to break it to sue.

00:48:51 ThickAsThieves: is there some argument to what is allowed to be taxed at all, and bitcoin not fitting that spectrum?

00:49:39 mircea_popescu: no, because the us does not recognise allodial title.

00:49:43 mircea_popescu: anything can be taxed.

00:49:48 ThickAsThieves: like isnt there an underlying premise for taxes being that, for example you cant profit from a shipping company without roads, and taxes pay for roads, therefor you must pay them

00:50:06 mircea_popescu: no.

00:50:10 ThickAsThieves: the USG neither provides for, nor maintains, nor creates bitocin

00:50:15 ThickAsThieves: something seems off

00:50:22 mircea_popescu: that bullcrap is entirely irrelevant to the discussion.

00:50:31 ThickAsThieves: ok

00:51:04 mircea_popescu: it's roughly the coating in the pill, various people sprout it because you know, the slavegirl that aesthetically loves her collar isn't really as much of a slavegirl or something.

00:51:09 ThickAsThieves: do you have an argument against the IRS rulings or you think they are sensible?

00:51:16 mircea_popescu: but taxes have exactly zero to do with roads.

00:51:42 mircea_popescu: the irs can tax anything the fuck it pleases. the reaction to taxation you dislike is leaving the jurisdiction, not arguing the point.

00:52:03 mike_c: even then you can't escape. you have to give up citizenship.

00:52:11 mircea_popescu: so give up citizenship.

00:52:45 mircea_popescu: (course iirc, you're not allowed to do so unless you prove it's specifically NOT because you dislike the taxation system. quite the racked your owner got going there.)

00:53:02 mike_c: and there's a fee :)

00:53:07 ThickAsThieves: heh

00:53:16 ThickAsThieves: surely a small price to pay

00:53:29 mircea_popescu: you can't imagine, on a more personal note, how fucking outlandish this is to me.

00:53:45 ThickAsThieves: do tell

00:54:03 mircea_popescu: if someone told me twenty years ago i will live to honestly pity the fate of the poor us citizens i'd have laughed for the rest of the day.

00:54:32 mircea_popescu: and i'm not even fucking old! i'm sitting here and im thinking... holy shit now THAT must suck. what a curse to be born with.

00:55:25 mike_c: could be worse. china is worse.

00:55:36 mircea_popescu: i do not believe china is currently worse.

00:55:40 mircea_popescu: korea is worse.

00:56:03 mike_c: foxconn has more suicides than jpmorgan.

00:56:08 Duffer1: the breathable parts of china sound nice

00:57:08 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [B.SELL] 3 @ 0.0564 = 0.1692 BTC [+]

01:02:19 benkay: i hand fried those potatoes

01:02:22 Mats_cd03: anyway like i was saying, i think some farmer had bought bad feed for his pigs and accidentally poisoned them

01:02:35 mircea_popescu: i have a lot more experience with noob cook chicks than you imagine my friend.

01:02:39 mircea_popescu: that's lashable cooking.

01:02:43 kakobrekla: mircea_popescu isnt it easier to just limit nubbins` ?

01:02:44 benkay: what's wrong with my plate?!

01:02:54 mircea_popescu: kakobrekla but he's so small!

01:02:54 Mats_cd03: and whos going to dig a proper hole for all of those bodies? thats fucking laborious

01:03:05 Mats_cd03: so he put them on the back of a pickup and then dropped them off somewhere upstream

01:03:05 mircea_popescu: benkay it looks like someone who can't cook made it.

01:03:28 mircea_popescu: Mats_cd03 either that or there was a pig geyser sprout on the river bed.

01:03:47 benkay: bah you and your aesthetics

01:15:06 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: re: griggs: this was one of those cases that ended in creating a 'talmudic wall' (as the hassid jews call this situation)

01:15:07 Mats_cd03: is baking

01:15:17 benkay: fuck baking

01:15:17 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform so it was.

01:15:27 asciilifeform: not until recently did anyone dare to give even vaguely intellectual puzzles to potential hires

01:15:30 benkay: so much time

01:15:37 Mats_cd03: youll live longer if you eat baked goods

01:15:40 asciilifeform: because of the 'disparate impact' (actual legal term) standard established by griggs

01:15:47 asciilifeform: (ianal!)

01:15:53 Mats_cd03: (over range-top cooking of meats)

01:16:09 Mats_cd03: me, i'm trying to live forever

01:16:15 qwebirc471694: fact: bears eat beets

01:16:20 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform and of course it is, as always, based on the commerce clause.

01:16:29 benkay: eh, forever's overrated

01:16:39 mircea_popescu: one almost dares hope that a wholesale repeal of commerce clause jurisprudence may fix teh us

01:16:39 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: as is virtually everything done by usg post-fdr

01:16:58 asciilifeform: that's like hoping for a cancellation of ckkpss. oh wait.

01:17:00 benkay: mircea_popescu: never going to happen.

01:17:03 moiety: ok so benkay do you have any little hard yellow shaped things in the kitchen that look like this? http://siciliangirl.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/09/Fusilli_pasta.jpg

01:29:14 moiety: benkay the badge is right there! citroen

01:30:02 mircea_popescu: well it's not really how they're supposed to work.

01:30:05 mircea_popescu: so don't do that.

01:30:10 mircea_popescu: make two or w/e.

01:38:12 moiety: i don't personally doge, well i mined 41 to learn the process. such wealth.

01:38:49 benkay: are there any alts which one can mine with a cpu and at least get a few?

01:39:15 benkay: dage i gather, but does that still hold true?

01:39:41 moiety: plenty, in the beginning at least, all the galters are cpu poolers too

01:39:43 benkay: maybe the infinitely inflating currencies live on in the processors of cpus and gpus

01:39:55 benkay: as their value decreases, so does hashpower from professionals applied against them.

01:40:07 benkay: haha

01:42:26 moiety: are scrypt asics a thing yet?

01:43:33 benkay: tg2: ^^

01:43:45 PObro: kncMiner has some scrypt miners for Q2/Q3 this year.

01:44:36 PObro: w

01:45:07 tg2: Gridseeds are out already

01:45:23 tg2: knc is gonna kill it though

01:45:55 cads: moiety: at least one company I've seen are claiming to be shipping a scrypt asic

01:46:34 benkay: have a good evening, everyone!

01:47:21 tg2: I hope scrypt responds poorly to Asic difficulty hike

01:47:32 cads: though I thought the memory requirements of scrypt is what made it inefficient to try to solve with an asic.

01:47:43 tg2: Less efficient

01:47:51 tg2: still 50x more than gpu lol

01:47:59 cads: gotcha

01:48:12 tg2: Vs 1000x more with sha256 asics

01:48:18 moiety: cads: great, a bfl v2?!

01:48:35 cads: bfl?

01:48:43 tg2: vertcoin is the only hope for no-asic and I'm sure it will happen

01:48:57 tg2: Their implementation is dumb

01:49:07 moiety: Big Fucking Liars aka Butterfly Labs

01:49:19 tg2: Knc is legit though

01:49:22 cads: has no researcher investigated mixed hash approaches?

01:49:36 tg2: Cads, look into x11 cpins

01:49:44 tg2: Coins* namely darkcoin

01:50:00 asciilifeform: why this mega-interest in coins optimized for botnet mining?

01:50:07 tg2: Lol

01:50:14 jborkl: Wtf is going on in here

01:50:27 tg2: Cause botters dos exchanges to make $

01:50:28 cads: lol, x11's site begins "With professional Scrypt mining hardware on the way it is time to look for the best alternative hashing solution that will keep crypto currency within reach of everyone."

01:50:42 asciilifeform: 'cpu optimized' == 'botnet optimized'

01:50:46 asciilifeform: what part of this is a secret

01:50:51 cads: asciilifeform: nice

01:50:56 cads: I hadn't thought that

01:51:02 tg2: Even gpu is swarm friendly

01:51:06 cads: right

01:51:24 tg2: 35% of systems have discrete gpu

01:51:27 tg2: Including phones

01:51:32 cads: because kids/manchildren with hefty gaming gpus

01:51:40 mircea_popescu: actually, as a purely academic point, does anyone know a hash that is genuinely cpu-favourable ?

01:51:44 asciilifeform: heterogeneity of gpu makes the bot artist's job tricky

01:51:55 mircea_popescu: none of this ram ostrich bs

01:52:02 cads: asciilifeform: I would use haskell

01:52:03 moiety: americans: do you have a gov site dedicated to people records?

01:52:21 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: cpu-friendly vs. what?

01:52:28 mircea_popescu: moiety no, they don't have central government.

01:52:40 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform basically, a huge lot of control instructions somehow

01:52:44 asciilifeform: easy.

01:52:47 asciilifeform: here's a simple one

01:52:49 cads: god it would be so great to find out these guys actually use next generation compiler tech to specialize their viruses to the hardware :)

01:53:03 asciilifeform: encode payload as bits on a grid, and run cellular automaton

01:53:07 asciilifeform: e.g. langton's ant

01:53:07 *: cads hates not knowing what's going on in the criminal sector of computer science

01:53:09 mircea_popescu: o yeah

01:53:10 asciilifeform: or 'life'

01:53:16 moiety: ty mircea_popescu

01:53:17 mircea_popescu: yeah srsly, graph anything. good point

01:53:35 mircea_popescu: would it hold as a hash tho

01:53:37 asciilifeform: say, 1e8-th state is the hash.

01:53:46 asciilifeform: or rather, a conventional cryptographic hash thereof

01:53:50 asciilifeform: (of the grid bits)

01:53:51 mircea_popescu: a right

01:53:55 mircea_popescu: no good reason not to chain them

01:54:11 asciilifeform: to make it 'asic-hostile', demand an outlandishly large grid.

01:54:14 mircea_popescu: then again, at least for life there are purely math algos

01:54:32 asciilifeform: there's exactly one - 'hashlife'

01:54:41 mircea_popescu: well a bunch of derivations but ok

01:55:05 asciilifeform: http://www.loper-os.org/pub/hl/hl.html

01:55:21 cads: asciilifeform: is hashlife hard or surprisingly easy to understand?

01:55:29 asciilifeform: surprisingly easy

01:55:36 asciilifeform: langton's ant is a bit more interesting

01:55:40 asciilifeform: in that the answer is very compact

01:55:44 mircea_popescu: it's not hard.

01:55:45 asciilifeform: the ant always ends up 'building a road'

01:55:56 asciilifeform: the output of the 'hash' can be 'starting on which move'

01:56:12 asciilifeform: this doesn't require you to hash the entire playing field

01:56:27 cads: looking up "hash life" on youtube got me to a video by "Swag Sensei"

01:56:30 asciilifeform: and there is presently no known means of predicting, other than by running the ant, when the bridge will be built

01:56:36 asciilifeform: and there is, afaik, no proof that it is always built

01:56:42 asciilifeform: but no known counter-example either.

01:56:59 cads: oh it's just smart memoization

01:57:01 asciilifeform: everyone is invited to try it

01:57:03 cads: durp

01:57:11 cads: nothing like stochastic/predictive?

01:57:19 *: cads reads on

01:57:29 asciilifeform: ;;google langton's ant

01:57:30 gribble: Langton's ant - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Langton's_ant; Langton's Ant - YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1X-gtr4pEBU; Langton's Ant -- from Wolfram MathWorld: http://mathworld.wolfram.com/LangtonsAnt.html

01:59:16 asciilifeform: incidentally, hashlife starts grinding to sub-naive speed if your playing field is complex

01:59:21 asciilifeform: (highly entropic)

01:59:28 asciilifeform: because it no longer compresses.

01:59:58 asciilifeform: given that GOL is proven turing-complete, it would follow that there is no generic shortcut to nth-state

02:00:07 asciilifeform: unless p == np

02:00:25 asciilifeform: (and possibly not even then)

02:00:49 samO_: haven't had internet conn. for almost two days! nearly lost my mind... :D what happend in the mean time, anything significant?

02:01:30 asciilifeform: one could make an arbitrarily hardware-unfriendly 'hash' using automata, merely by demanding a large and well-entropic (crypto hash of payload, bit-spread) playing field

02:01:35 asciilifeform: and a turing-complete automaton

02:01:37 VanCleef: the fuck is up with havelock

02:01:37 tg2: I have a useful distributed work coin project on the burner

02:01:44 VanCleef: shit dont even work properly anymore

02:01:47 VanCleef: useless site

02:01:48 asciilifeform: make the field large enough, and everyone is reduced to swapping to disk!

02:01:53 tg2: gonna be better than wasting hashes on nothing

02:02:18 asciilifeform: (why anyone should wish this is another question.)

02:02:34 samO_: also, is there a chat log history of this channel somewhere? thx!

02:02:48 tg2: Just Google your username

02:11:03 asciilifeform: proposed algo, for those who insist:

02:11:13 asciilifeform: take j x k bit playing field.

02:11:52 asciilifeform: fill bits, in sequence, with sha2(xxx), then sha2(sha2(xxx)).... until field is full

02:12:05 asciilifeform: then run langton's ant, starting from the middle of the field

02:12:13 asciilifeform: output is an integer, N

02:12:20 mircea_popescu: ;;later tell benkay "One cannot issue ratings until one is rated oneself. This is a useful feature that prevents a lot of misuse of the system. If scammers cannot stuff the WoT database with their sockpuppets, they cannot artificially inflate their ratings. Granted, the mechanism is weak and easily gamed, but the simple presence of a barrier reduces much malfeasance." this made no sense. you know it made no sense. why

02:12:21 mircea_popescu: is it there then !?

02:12:21 gribble: The operation succeeded.

02:12:24 asciilifeform: corresponding to 'bridge is being built'

02:13:06 asciilifeform: alternatively, run 'life' on the entire field, for M moves, and output is sha(field)

02:13:45 mircea_popescu: in fact!

02:13:53 mircea_popescu: you can have difficulty scale as... the size of the field.

02:13:58 asciilifeform: as i said above.

02:14:06 mircea_popescu: a you did ?

02:14:13 asciilifeform: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=29-03-2014#590936

02:14:15 ozbot: #bitcoin-assets log

02:14:30 mircea_popescu: what i mean is

02:14:41 mircea_popescu: the mining difficulty parameter is not some arbitrary zerofill

02:14:45 mircea_popescu: but the size of the field to compute.

02:14:49 asciilifeform: well yes.

02:14:53 asciilifeform: that'd be how it has to be.

02:15:23 asciilifeform: now all you need is a reason to actually do this.

02:15:24 mircea_popescu: how many numbers are the product of two others ?

02:15:32 mircea_popescu: all nonprimes basically huh.

02:15:38 asciilifeform: not incl. 1?

02:15:45 mircea_popescu: in fact you can allow life on a 1 wide grid couldn't you

02:15:50 asciilifeform: certainly

02:16:01 asciilifeform: although it would need to be called something else

02:16:11 mircea_popescu: yeah, i think the lowest would be 3 ? or 5 ?

02:16:15 mircea_popescu: maybe 5.

02:16:58 asciilifeform: most possible cellular automata degenerate to a steady state rather than give the kind of 'soup' one normally looks for.

02:17:18 asciilifeform: (yet another 'discovery' by people long ago that herr W claimed for himself)

02:21:41 ozbot: White House regulate cow flatulence climate agenda | The Daily Caller

02:22:32 asciilifeform: so long as you use an automaton that has been proven turing-complete, and use a reasonably entropic starting field state, you're pretty much safe from shortcuts

02:22:53 asciilifeform: and people are stuck having to compute the state transitions for the whole field, as many times as specified

02:23:07 asciilifeform: unless p == np, rocks fall, crypto dies

02:23:40 asciilifeform: likewise, scaling the difficulty in time and space becomes trivial.

02:24:22 cazalla: moiety: that gpg guide is good, this was much easier than i thought it would be

02:25:55 moiety: cazalla: yeah definately, i got the live version :D he is a very good sensei

02:26:19 asciilifeform: anyone who has the apparently common distaste for the asic folks should give this some thought.

02:29:48 asciilifeform: except when linked here - and even then, every 50th time or so

02:29:53 MisterE: yea from what I can tell its mostly trash

02:29:58 MisterE: I will find it

02:30:14 kakobrekla: trash mixed with gold

02:30:23 kakobrekla: but mostly trash

02:30:32 asciilifeform: any surprises therein for folks who understand the algos?

02:38:07 tg2: Yeah knc updated their numbers, I should update the post

02:38:14 asciilifeform: 'Current/Next gen bitcoin/sha256 asics are already at the forefront of manufacturing process, they cannot get more power efficient without waiting for a new manufacturing process to be available (14nm)' << nah

02:38:23 mircea_popescu: tg2 you realise people wouldn't build the ram as part of the asic do you ?

02:38:37 asciilifeform: why brute force. it's like nobody gives a rat's arse enough to even try

02:38:47 tg2: They went for the "less ram faster latency" approach

02:39:12 asciilifeform: hence 'lifecoin'. you're stuck with the RAM

02:39:18 tg2: I stand by my analysis though that it won't be near as prolific as sha256

02:39:36 mircea_popescu: nearly as prolific as bitcoin miners they will never be

02:39:38 tg2: Although knc sure is trying to prove me wrong lol

02:39:44 MisterE: and won't depreciate so quickly like sha-256 2nd gen

02:39:48 mircea_popescu: the reason, of course, is that bitcoin is worth three to four degrees of magnitude more.

02:40:02 MisterE: I heard knc was not reliable and they have had a lot of delivery misses int he past?

02:40:14 mircea_popescu: MisterE not as bad as all that.

02:40:21 MisterE: ok

02:40:23 tg2: They are probably one of the best right now

02:40:33 MisterE: they also mine so there is a conflict of interest iirc?

02:41:03 tg2: at a workshop 5 minutes from my office

02:41:13 asciilifeform: i've always wondered if folks interested in mining despite the negative ROI are really just looking to convert fiat to btc by whatever means possible.

02:41:33 tg2: Yeah I think that's a way to look at it

02:41:33 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform how about the people who "invest" despite negative roi ?

02:41:45 tg2: Don't forget gpu's hold some value

02:43:52 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform those people trade otc.

02:44:01 MisterE: there was just the article in Ars abotu the guy who controls ~10% of hash rate

02:44:03 asciilifeform: MisterE: large concerns with ready access to the latest widgets, sure.

02:44:11 mircea_popescu: well i guess, but it's becoming edge-r and edge-r

02:44:20 asciilifeform: the poor schmucks buying thirdhand asic, not so much

02:44:22 MisterE: but medium - small guys are throwing money away?

02:44:27 MisterE: lol ok

02:44:41 mircea_popescu: it's really very hit and miss.

02:44:54 asciilifeform: but there's a standpoint from which it makes sense to buy a junk miner

02:45:04 mircea_popescu: "large concerns" that thought they had access to the latest widgets expected to come out... november 2012 are mostly bankrupt today

02:45:06 MisterE: yea tg2 does a good job explaining that depreciation, expecially of 2nd gen sha-256 asics

02:45:41 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: that'd be because the only way to have reliable access to latest xxx is to... build it

02:45:43 tg2: Yeah I pitty anybody who dropped btc on a bfl product

02:45:52 mircea_popescu: MisterE it's a theory. it's not outrageously or massively wrong, but im not too persuaded.

02:46:12 MisterE: yea BFL really scammed a lot

02:46:35 MisterE: my buddy ordered a 10mh box and was shopped a 7mh box

02:46:40 asciilifeform: some people will spend 2K usd to get 1 btc, if it means they don't have to bend over for 'aml' crapola or trust someone

02:46:42 mircea_popescu: ahh, remember the days when am was derping about "having 30% of all hashing for a year"

02:46:43 MisterE: they are being sued

02:46:45 MisterE: a lot

02:46:46 mircea_popescu: it was.... six months ago ?

02:47:04 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform someone they'll still be trusting.

02:47:10 tg2: I honestly think they started out with the goal of scamming and then btc blew up so fast lol

02:47:15 mircea_popescu: unless they're taking a microscope to the box, who's to say what's in there ?

02:47:30 asciilifeform: think 'silk road' and 'why didn't they just go to the dark alley to buy the coke'

02:47:38 MisterE: well performance doesn't lie heh

02:47:48 MisterE: plus I thing it was stamped on the box

02:47:54 tg2: I hope this Canadian class action against gox bears some fruit

02:47:56 mircea_popescu: anyway, i'm off. take it easy all.

02:48:07 MisterE: BFL could not deliver the product my buddy ordered and instead of refunding sent a lesser spec

02:48:09 asciilifeform: from this crackpot theory, mining doesn't need to have much +EV so long as it isn't too far in the minus.

02:48:17 tg2: I'm glad they decided to do it, they were on the fence about it for a few days

02:48:30 mircea_popescu: you mean https://twitter.com/Mircea_Popescu/status/447869151756161025 ?

02:48:32 MisterE: I hope they all do

02:49:25 MisterE: I heard they were being sued the first time a couple months ago but that also people were lining up to file

02:49:33 tg2: Ain't nobody spending 2k for 1 btc lol

02:49:53 tg2: no matter how shady

02:49:54 asciilifeform: tg2: many 'home' miners end up doing just that.

02:50:00 MisterE: I made a big buy (for me) at 500 yesterday

02:50:03 tg2: Not by intent

02:50:17 tg2: I have 250k of gpus running

02:50:18 asciilifeform: tg2: that's what i was wondering. perhaps it isn't always accidental

02:50:22 tg2: dat cheap hydro

02:50:25 MisterE: it goes out in pieces to the electric company

02:50:45 tg2: And most of it was bought with btc mined from a single 5970 lol

02:50:46 MisterE: so if they can amortize it spending 2k on a BTC is acceptable I guess.

02:51:05 MisterE: heh yea think of that scale jump

02:51:15 tg2: My thoughts are, my power costs me .05c

02:51:18 tg2: Cdn$

02:51:25 MisterE: you got hydro?

02:51:38 MisterE: or nukes in the back yard?

02:51:54 MisterE: in US you get cheap power if you live nearish a nuke plant

02:51:56 tg2: Rate m power

02:51:59 TestingUnoDosTre: I bought some at 500 as well

02:52:17 TestingUnoDosTre: pissed because I made a small purchase around 400...

02:52:20 MisterE: yea I see a lot of support at 500 TestingUnoDosTre

02:52:46 tg2: plus cheap cooling most of the year

02:52:47 MisterE: all the bad BTC news lately hasn't budged it at all

02:52:48 MisterE: very good sign

02:52:54 TestingUnoDosTre: I see a lot of don't really care how things pan out over the next 2-3 months

02:53:10 MisterE: tg2: the successful miners of the future will have to monetize that heat

02:53:10 tg2: People in cali and uk already losing money

02:53:37 TestingUnoDosTre: US miners are going to have to evade taxs or more out

02:53:40 tg2: Umm already doing something with my 600,000 btu lol

02:53:47 TestingUnoDosTre: move*

02:53:57 MisterE: what you doing tg2 ?

02:54:08 tg2: Have grass growing outside in the middle of February

02:54:16 MisterE: I mean hell you can just well insulate and heat your house if you live in a colder place

02:54:22 MisterE: lolol :)

02:54:25 tg2: While it's -20C out

02:54:34 xdotcommer: weather is changing

02:54:37 MisterE: you so high roller

02:54:38 tg2: It's to much heat for a house

02:54:57 MisterE: in 20 years you;ll have to run an a/c for your February lawn heh

02:55:00 tg2: almost 200,000 W

02:55:05 MisterE: damn

02:55:23 tg2: With darkcoin about 110kw

02:55:32 MisterE: I'm thining of the centralized boilers in NYC that heat several blocks

02:55:49 tg2: You can recycle it

02:55:57 MisterE: as scale of rigs increase a colo facility that makes use of that heat in a similar way would be interesting

02:56:30 tg2: I tried to make a deal with a golf dome to heat it for free over the winter

02:56:32 *: MisterE needs to learn about darkcoin

13:03:11 VanCleef: that was your first mistake

13:03:28 mircea_popescu: yeah generally a pragmatic approach works better. there are more things we want to believe in than can be done.

13:04:09 psterryl: so people are saying neobee is a scam now?

13:04:29 VanCleef: yeah its official

13:04:35 mircea_popescu: just poorly managed.

13:04:35 bounce: but, I like that poster!

13:04:48 psterryl: how is it official vancleef?

13:04:54 psterryl: since there's been no official statement

13:05:00 psterryl: seems like rumour to me

13:05:34 psterryl: until someone points to some legit evidence or a statement from LMB/neo/danny

13:05:54 mircea_popescu: psterryl what's your reasoning process here ?

13:06:17 psterryl: my reasoning is evidence based

13:06:28 psterryl: without evidence either way

13:06:28 mircea_popescu: i mean specifically in this deduction :

13:06:38 mircea_popescu: <psterryl> so people are saying neobee is a scam now?

13:06:38 mircea_popescu: <VanCleef> yeah its official <psterryl> until someone points to some legit evidence or a statement from LMB/neo/danny

13:06:39 psterryl: it's impossible to call it one way or the other

13:06:58 mircea_popescu: no, this is neither reasonable nor novel material.

13:07:18 mircea_popescu: it's been covered to death why " it's impossible to call it one way or the other" doesn't work and doesn't hold, over the years

13:09:23 psterryl: oh ok

13:09:41 mircea_popescu: the path is 1) you prove you're able to think ; 2) you're entitled to your own viewpoint.

13:09:41 psterryl: so everyone is entitled to the mircea approved viewpoint?

13:09:43 mircea_popescu: so far you're short 1.

13:09:44 mircea_popescu: no.

13:10:01 psterryl: well, my 1st class university degree should suggest i'm ok for #1

13:14:25 psterryl: true but when someone makes a blanket statement that not everyone is entitled to their own opinion

13:14:33 psterryl: it suddenly becomes much harder to take them seriously

13:14:39 psterryl: even idiots are entited to an opinion

13:14:44 psterryl: it might be subjectively wrong in my eyes

13:14:51 psterryl: but doesnt mean they're not entiteld to it

13:14:56 ThickAsThieves: i dunno

13:15:01 ThickAsThieves: did you bother asking why?

13:15:14 ThickAsThieves: maybe he has logic behind his claims

13:15:38 ThickAsThieves: you never felt like some people's opinion's dont deserve the weight they carry

13:15:40 ThickAsThieves: ?

13:15:45 psterryl: of course

13:15:51 psterryl: but they're still entitled to that opinion

13:15:55 psterryl: despite my personal views of it

13:16:12 ThickAsThieves: or like the people that are most likely to say "everyone is entitled to their own opinion" are the least likely to have opinions worth considering?

13:16:43 psterryl: well

13:16:47 psterryl: that may be your opinion

13:16:48 ThickAsThieves: it's customer-is-always-right syndrome

13:16:55 psterryl: and you're totally entitled to it

13:17:10 psterryl: but i personally disagree

13:17:11 ThickAsThieves: maybe the issue mp has is with entitlement itself

13:17:21 ThickAsThieves: not the craziest thing to challenge

13:18:34 VanCleef: anyone have a youtube vid of a robot that's better than asimo?

13:18:46 psterryl: that's a possibility

13:19:00 psterryl: but saying that someone has to prove their intelligence before they're allowed an opinion

13:19:07 psterryl: seems like a fairly entitled stance

13:19:14 psterryl: so maybe it's a self-loathing issue

13:20:00 ThickAsThieves: if you think mp is self-loathing, you have not read much from him

13:20:11 psterryl: like i said i'm new here

13:20:17 VanCleef: stocks are like women....once they lose their value you dump them

13:21:06 ThickAsThieves: VanCleef, in that example, isnt better to dump them before they lose value?

13:21:40 VanCleef: yes but like with women investors get emotionally involved and dont know when to let go

13:22:08 VanCleef: this is the problem psterryl is having with neobee atm

13:22:15 ThickAsThieves: a bit of a generalization, but i hear ya

13:24:31 pankkake: I thought the limit for women was clear, dump when the age doesn't end in teen

13:24:36 psterryl: and sometimes people bring a relationship back from the rocks and go on to have long and fulfilling times together

13:25:44 mircea_popescu: why not just dump them when they get annoying, age-irrespective ?

13:26:01 pankkake: wait there are non-annoying women?!

13:26:04 mircea_popescu: yeah!

13:26:18 pankkake: that didn't use to be a man?

13:26:25 mircea_popescu: see, if you dump them when they get 20 you're stuck with a bunch of annoying teens

13:26:36 mircea_popescu: if you dump them when they get annoying you're stuck with a bunch of pleasant women.

13:26:51 chetty: hey there are a lot of non-annoying women

13:27:08 ThickAsThieves: maybe you need to write a how to pick up chicks worth picking up blog

13:27:12 mircea_popescu: chetty dated a lot of em ?

13:27:42 mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves that's simple, "have your girls recommend"

13:28:02 ThickAsThieves: my girls?

13:28:10 ThickAsThieves: like exes?

13:28:13 mircea_popescu: uh

13:28:21 mircea_popescu: no, because as per previous exes are annoying

13:28:27 ThickAsThieves: slaves?

13:28:38 ThickAsThieves: mom?

13:28:40 mircea_popescu: well slaves if you keep slaves, girlfriends, w/e you got

13:28:55 mircea_popescu: lol mom. not mom, it works better if you've been intimate. what's urmom know.

13:29:00 ThickAsThieves: so ask your gf to recommend a new gf?

13:29:05 ThickAsThieves: lol

13:29:07 mircea_popescu: then again... deep south... maybe i shouldn't assume

13:29:11 mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves definitely.

13:29:24 VanCleef: "how to pick up chicks by not talking about bitcoin"

13:29:42 ThickAsThieves: "I'm sorry baby, it's just not working out. Got any referrals?"

13:29:50 mircea_popescu: well you can't dump her

13:29:54 mircea_popescu: she's not being annoying is she.

13:30:17 ThickAsThieves: you gotta hold our collective hand a little hear

13:30:19 ThickAsThieves: here*

13:30:25 ThickAsThieves: cant find the thread

13:30:42 mircea_popescu: i am more than willing to continue answering q's.

13:30:53 mircea_popescu: tis not annoying or anything :D

13:31:42 ThickAsThieves: i'll rephrase

13:31:47 ThickAsThieves: shooting in the dark is annoying too

13:32:11 ThickAsThieves: so far it seems you want a man to ask his not-annoying gf for recommendations

13:32:17 mircea_popescu: gfs

13:32:18 chetty: where is your sense of adventure?

13:32:24 mircea_popescu: it's unlikely a single girl can do much for oyu.

13:32:51 ThickAsThieves: so we need to rewind to where you suggest a man generally keep multiple gfs

13:33:08 mircea_popescu: a man does generally keep multiple gfs.

13:33:12 [KS]: Hi all - you guys are golden. Asssets/scams/2c psychology/women advice etc :) (back to lurking)

13:33:15 ThickAsThieves: the kind he fucks?

13:33:17 Diablo-D3: lol

13:33:21 ThickAsThieves: or the kind he'll talk to?

13:33:24 mircea_popescu: [KS] hugs and kisses to you too

13:33:28 *: Diablo-D3 has kept multiple gfs.

13:33:28 mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves yes the kind he fucks.

13:34:10 ThickAsThieves: anytime i've attempted as much it felt more like being a triple agent than anything

13:34:19 mircea_popescu: this "lifetime monogamy" thing is a very narrow edge case of human sexual and intimate practice.

13:34:24 mircea_popescu: both historical and geographical.

13:34:25 ThickAsThieves: the more they know about each other the more crazy they behave

13:34:32 mircea_popescu: if they do dump em.

13:34:35 ThickAsThieves: i see

13:34:37 mircea_popescu: as per annoying rule.

13:34:41 ThickAsThieves: heh

13:34:43 ThickAsThieves: so simple!

13:34:46 mircea_popescu: indeed.

13:34:54 mircea_popescu: turns out red wire was there all along :)

13:35:08 ThickAsThieves: and should man tolerate the reverse?

13:35:13 mircea_popescu: up to him.

13:35:20 ThickAsThieves: whether ity annoys him

13:35:23 ThickAsThieves: still works i guess

13:35:27 mircea_popescu: indeed.

13:36:09 mircea_popescu: btw, quick question : einstein had a) no girlfriend ; b) one girlfriend c) two girlfriends or d) thirteen girlfriends.

13:36:22 ThickAsThieves: a?

13:36:33 ThickAsThieves: i'm going with intelligence is a burden

13:37:14 ThickAsThieves: "Albert Einstein had half a dozen girlfriends and told his wife they showered him with "unwanted" affection, according to letters released "

13:37:34 mircea_popescu: :p

13:37:38 Diablo-D3: #smartpeopleproblems

13:38:14 ThickAsThieves: he married his cousin too

13:38:25 Diablo-D3: second cousin

13:38:48 kakobrekla: did he also eat the neighbors dog?

13:38:52 kakobrekla: smart people problems.

13:39:16 mircea_popescu: kakobrekla no, but reports show he occasionally ate the neighbour's bitch.

13:39:24 kakobrekla: you bitch.

13:40:57 mircea_popescu: now to fully establish the other extreme, since nobody seems inclined, we return to scriptae :

13:41:04 mircea_popescu: It's unfair to quote a 5 year old article but if Alone still believes _that_ analysis has validity...he's missed the forest of leeching for the victimized and disinterested trees. Many women invest their entire lives in what amounts to brazen fraud conducted and perfected to "catch" a guy who is then trapped with no idea how cruelly he's been setup.

13:41:04 mircea_popescu: Guys lose interest. And women, who hated sex remember (they're not that type of girl), suddenly give the con away. It boils down to this; what are they bringing to the party?

13:41:05 mircea_popescu: Emotional poison, lies, some shitty repetitive sex (I'll be more romantic when those who believe in the lie that is exclusivity eat the same meal for the rest of their lives), surrogate services, shitty cooking...It doesn't matter that I'm grossly making crude generalizations. I'm right.

13:41:07 mircea_popescu: And the market agrees with me. Alone missed it. Porn is a better product. If girls want to compete maybe they should get real? Virtual honesty v Virtual Deceit? This is economics. No need for hysterics or water works or expressed feelings. Awwh.

13:41:17 mircea_popescu: now THIS is self loathing.

13:42:48 ThickAsThieves: written by a woman?

13:43:13 mircea_popescu: http://thelastpsychiatrist.com/2012/10/the_story_of_narcissus.html#comment-27176

13:43:14 ozbot: The Last Psychiatrist: The Second Story Of Echo And Narcissus

13:43:16 mircea_popescu: some guy presumably.

13:44:08 ThickAsThieves: or so he'd like us to believe

13:44:16 mircea_popescu: i'll give this much credit to the entire progressive movement : while in the 50s there in fact existed schools and other torture implements dedicated to reforming otherwise decent, healthy and loving human beings into the sort of very sad victims of abuse described there,

13:44:24 mircea_popescu: it's rare now.

13:44:43 mircea_popescu: so rare that extant examples are almost fascinating for reason of that rarity.

13:45:05 ThickAsThieves: i imagine dating in your 30s in 40s these days is pretty much all online websites now?

13:45:15 chetty: huh? Looks like more of those schools out there, just different rules

13:45:31 mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves betas shower the websites, alphas let the girls suggest girls for the club.

13:45:39 mircea_popescu: chetty how you mean ?

13:45:51 mircea_popescu: and in completely different yet very related news, "The problem, as the president explained it, is that Putin doesn?t understand how the world is supposed to work"

13:46:14 ThickAsThieves: projection?

13:46:16 mircea_popescu: inching along towards the "putin doesn't give a shit about the way i think the world should work"

13:46:23 chetty: wiht 'leaders' like that no wonder world is such a mess

13:46:29 mircea_popescu: after which, "putin is satan"

13:57:51 ThickAsThieves: how will we protect ATC from such a fate?

13:58:01 mircea_popescu: this is a pretty good q.

13:58:13 kakobrekla: merged mining with btc :(

13:58:16 mircea_popescu: my own thinking is that if we keep a reasonable floor under it it'll never be productive

13:59:11 ThickAsThieves: i dont think it could be protected really

13:59:11 mircea_popescu: in general the best way to reduce irrational behaviour is to control volatility.

13:59:18 mircea_popescu: kinda the original thinking behind central banks at any rate

13:59:29 ThickAsThieves: all it would take is one btc farm to point at it

13:59:39 kakobrekla: go ahead and try to attack 'nmc'

13:59:43 mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves yes, but why would they ? not worth it.

13:59:54 mircea_popescu: kakobrekla what about it ?

14:00:09 kakobrekla: well, its much much harder than atc

14:00:17 ThickAsThieves: so basically we cant let it bubble either

14:00:26 ThickAsThieves: or itll draw attention

14:00:56 mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves indeed. this baby will do a bunch if firsts.

14:01:04 mircea_popescu: first altcoin not premined, first altcoin not allowed to bubble, etc.

14:01:08 ThickAsThieves: time for the Altcoin Central Bank to make a trading bot

14:01:21 mircea_popescu: i thought that's why i wrote bingoboingo.

14:01:22 kakobrekla: how can you 'not allow' it to bubble

14:01:27 mircea_popescu: kakobrekla by selling.

14:01:30 ThickAsThieves: yep

14:01:44 ThickAsThieves: large holders need to give it up when it's time

14:01:47 kakobrekla: you cant sell enough if the things wants to bubble

14:01:52 mircea_popescu: try me.

14:02:10 ThickAsThieves: a new floor might be reached in the process

14:02:19 ThickAsThieves: but trying alone will help

14:02:28 mircea_popescu: economy may be a social science, but finance is totally an art.

14:02:35 kakobrekla: its math, i dont need to try you

14:02:42 mircea_popescu: :)

14:03:04 mircea_popescu: math is only the bus ticket taking you to the concert.

14:03:22 ThickAsThieves: "SchellingCoin: A Minimal-Trust Universal Data Feed"

14:03:25 kakobrekla: thats fine, i hate concerts.

14:03:57 mircea_popescu: it's gotten to where i can no longer discern parody from reality.

14:04:00 mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves you made that shit up baby ?

14:04:17 ThickAsThieves: ive said as much before, for years

14:04:58 ThickAsThieves: or are you asking me about SchellingCoin?

14:05:12 ThickAsThieves: it's a fukn Ethereum thing

14:05:44 ThickAsThieves: i cant look at any one line without pain

14:05:47 ThickAsThieves: "The main idea here is called “hedging”, and is best explained in the context of Bitcoin"

14:07:17 mircea_popescu: lolwut

14:07:23 mircea_popescu: aaahahahaa

14:07:32 kakobrekla: A court in Fort Worth, Texas, has granted a temporary restraining order to freeze the bitcoin wallets of ASIC mining hardware manufacturer HashFast Technologies LLC and HashFast LLC, after a customer claimed it failed to deliver hardware on time or negotiate a refund.

14:07:44 ThickAsThieves: “It speaks to the legitimacy of cryptocurrencies and a growing understanding of their value and importance to businesses.”

14:07:47 ThickAsThieves: the pains

14:07:54 mircea_popescu: The complaint, which has a Background section with the question ?What the heck is a Bitcoin?? also contains an attachment of 30 pages of bitcointalk forum discussion detailing the history of the story from July-August 2013.

14:08:26 mircea_popescu: ok, i guess it's announcement time : mpex will not be honoring the forth worth court order, or any similar instrument drawn by any court.

14:08:35 kakobrekla: why so quick to jump the gun on this while bfl can shit in peoples mouth for years now

14:08:48 mircea_popescu: any bitcoins received as specified by mpex will be fully credited to the depositor in any and all circumstances.

14:11:19 ThickAsThieves: would it be fair to stop assigning a USD value in cases of stolen coins?

14:11:24 ThickAsThieves: 1 btc = 1btc

14:11:38 ThickAsThieves: what is owed is 1 btc

14:11:48 ThickAsThieves: etc

14:11:49 mircea_popescu: in this court, yes.

14:11:52 mircea_popescu: in a fiat court, never.

18:08:25 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: one can buy marine radar domes quite small enough to fit on a car.

18:08:58 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform yeah, but i would imagine a better adjusted thing may be developed.

18:09:06 mircea_popescu: i mean, marine radar is not biased for concrete say

18:09:26 asciilifeform: i vaguely recall that a recent mercedes has radar of some form

18:09:55 kakobrekla: it doesnt work very well

18:13:05 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform no, you polarize the lasers, you use modulated radar, there's solutions

18:13:31 asciilifeform: then you get folks who go 'well, if we're already broadcasting, let's make exact position radio mandatory, like lights'

18:25:23 asciilifeform: 'Some women might, however, choose to coexist with sexbots, just as some European women as they get older tolerate their husbands taking up with younger mistresses.

18:28:32 asciilifeform: 'The in-laws won?t be as much of a problem either because the male in-laws will be preoccupied with sexbots of their own, therefore they will have less time on their hands to spend meddling in the lives of their relatives.

22:01:39 asciilifeform: but have mostly disappeared

22:01:55 asciilifeform: any serious pc user should own a rom burner anyway

22:02:22 asciilifeform: chinese units are 20-50 usd

22:03:22 jurov: one usually does it once in 5 years... not sure if it's worth the occupied space

22:03:36 asciilifeform: space?! they're pocket-sized

22:03:42 asciilifeform: or you meant, on the board

22:04:45 jurov: yes i meant... hundred pocket sized gizmos to be used once in 5 yrs + cables = several boxen labeled shit and "more shit"

22:05:04 jurov: it's annoying

22:05:07 truffles: yay shit

22:05:19 asciilifeform: a box with zapped rom is considerably more annoying, imho

22:05:59 asciilifeform: if buying a rom burner, helps to get the kind that takes SOIC-8 socket adapters, for laptop flash

22:08:00 cads: hey has anyone hear if something bad is happening with auroracoin?

22:08:36 truffles: cads into alts hmm

22:09:06 cads: doge for life

22:11:53 cads: about 10 days ago auroracoin put $300 worth of auroracoin up for any icelandic citizen to grab

22:11:54 nubbins`: mircea_popescu: "and I experienced complete awareness", lel

22:11:58 nubbins`: i've read that one in the past

22:12:19 truffles: not possible

22:12:30 cads: since then citizens have had their identities forged, the value of the AUR has dropped like 75% and now people are saying AUR is being hit by a 51% attack

22:13:24 cads: the chaos is kinda awesome but I can't figure what's going on

22:13:53 truffles: get a blackbox ull know it all

22:41:01 CheckDavid: tg2: there's a game called bubble

22:41:08 tg2: :D

22:41:17 CheckDavid: Which basically is an explicit ponzi with rules

22:41:37 tg2: IPO are the last ones in :D

22:50:12 lnovy: the whole pc architecture is a big matrix, it looks and behaves pretty much nothing like you see it

22:50:23 lnovy: huh... scrollbuffer lag

22:50:34 lnovy: ignore plz :)

23:17:56 Namworld: Wait.... WAIT. Wait wait wait wait wait... Stripe will allow Bitcoin payments?

23:20:40 Namworld: Oh really? You don't say...

23:21:07 Namworld: How unsurprising.

23:27:52 lnovy: incomming!

23:31:52 Namworld: If Karpeles finds more Bitcoins and they're all returned I'll make the weirdest face. "He didn't scam, he just lost the keys? Had to try and find doubles in old backups of data? What stupidity is this?"

23:33:42 Namworld: Current odds of getting 100% back: 0.001% or so, odds provided by Ass-Pullouts®

23:34:19 dexX7: hehe.. the wallet they found was allegedly found, because it was in an old format that new bitcoin clients don't recognize

23:34:32 dexX7: or something like that ;)

23:35:54 Namworld: Translation: "My keys!? They no work, what happened!? Oh, I have one here in this old backup. Maybe I can keep looking, maybe I find more keys in these old files."

23:36:29 dexX7: sounds accurate

23:37:22 Namworld: Someone, please do a retro parody of a platformer, called: "Karpeles and the Search for the Seven Private Keys"

23:38:20 Namworld: With coffee powerups, regulators and hacker mobs/bosses and of course collecting keys or fragments of keys.

23:46:21 jurov: Namworld don't forget protesters

23:47:45 jurov: and the end boss shall bear uncanny resemblance to mpoe-pr

23:49:40 jurov: chetty maybe you can make a little development detour?
