awesome

PsychoticBoy

I would have gone but I am racing a 24h race in spa-francorchamps

nefario

I'm not sure if that sounds fun or not

BTC-Mining

nefario
I see the new black market is implemented

nefario

hi
ye
yes

BTC-Mining

How about styling those tabs at the top? There's the thin white/red/blue/black buttons you could make into a bar.

nefario

That was kind of a rush job
I had them in a table
but it spilled over into 2 lines

BTC-Mining

Make it a menu with those four colors from the bootstrap buttons, using the smallest format
should make a nice bar

nefario

oh right
good idea
thanks for the suggestion

Bugpowder

10% return on my S.MPOE trade today

4.5 BTC

mircea_popescu

hehe wd.

BTC-Mining

You should trade more S.MPOE

Bugpowder

It was a once in a lifetime opportunity
I bought all that was available below 36000

mircea_popescu

o hey, it dipped that low huh ?

Bugpowder

35000
100k went off at 35000

mircea_popescu

Bugpowder well, good for you~

Bugpowder

#WINNING

nefario

mircea_popescu: are you not worried about the risk to mpex as an exchange because of your trading of options on mpoe?

Bugpowder

Yeah, is that firewalled?

mircea_popescu

what risk do you see ?

nefario

what happens if you become illiquid?

mircea_popescu

mpoe doesn't trade in my own name, there's bondholders financing it.

Bugpowder

I see. Is that 5% yield yearly or monthly (the bondholders)

mircea_popescu

Bugpowder well currently it's unlimited, so it could be w/e they ask for

nefario

Bane_Capital: why didn't you come to the conference?

Bane_Capital

nefario: I would of came if it was in December.

nefario

oh well
missed ya

mircea_popescu

nefario : is anyone in this room at your conference doohickey ?
i'm looking forward to somebody organising an actual conference. you know, invite people that matter in btc etc.

Bane_Capital

nefario: I hope to meet you eventually. : )

nefario

was actually looking forward to meeting you

Bane_Capital

Well I appreciate that. I do.

nefario

I met someone who used to troll me on the forums over a year ago
it was so funny
he turned out to be a girl
genjix's sister
I can't get over that

mircea_popescu

lmao. so wait, you're all related there ?

nefario

Also
richard stallman came to speak

mircea_popescu

nefario >> nefario : is anyone in this room at your conference doohickey ? <<

nefario

and he had free software foundation merchandise sent ahead
there was a stuffed animal
a gnu
and someone walked off with it

mircea_popescu

dude stop faking it, seriously. you, taaki and his sister showed up. nobody cares, fo reals.

nefario

stallman seemed like he was going to cry
mircea_popescu: you're losing your shit man

mircea_popescu

no, my shit is safely stored with grubles and i trust him.

Bane_Capital

nefario: :(
God, I should of came
I love Stallman
Because he's hilarious.

nefario

Bane_Capital: I felt sorry for him
but I don't think the stolen gnu was malicious
the stuff arrived in a box
with no instructions
and I think someone thought it was free
someone was also selling casicius coins
or however you spell it
lol
I can't even say it never mind spell it
I couldn't find dead terra
He'll see me speak tomorrow if he's therei
there were like 20 people who didn't come
but had paid
about 30 people paid cash
the other 300 had pre-paidii
when max keiser came
I said he looked tired
the guy started shouting at me
I was like
WTF
trolled me hard
lols were had

Bane_Capital

I am sure Keiser has a packed schedule
I think RT runs on a shoe string budget

Diablo-D3

eh, kinda
at least rt america does

nefario

we paid for his trip to the confence
he's a speaker
was so funny
genjix went to pay stallman
and stallman was like:wait a minute I'm speaking to this person
so genjix just walked off with his money
"fuck this Im not waiting"
stallman started getting angry
I had to go to the restaraunt and get the money, genjix had gone to eat
was sooo
lols

Bane_Capital

Wait
What was the money about?
Kinda missed where the money came in

nefario

stallmans airline ticket re-imbursement
I think the loss of his gnu ruined his day
so it's now just linux
which pisses him off
lol

Diablo-D3

why the fuck did rms even show up
he doesnt bother with small events anymore

mircea_popescu

Diablo-D3 because by now not that many people can be bothered to invite him anywhere.

nefario

I haven't even written my talk for tomorrow
mircea_popescu: would you like me to mention you or mpex?

mircea_popescu

no.iii

  1. This would be the famous speech in which the guy assured everyone who'd listen that GLBSE can't possibly have any problems two week before closing it "for problems" and also demonstrated he doesn't know what "arbitrage" means. Ladies and gents, I give you the new Boxxy. []
  2. This is so very true in fact that by the end of the conference the guy was looking to borrow money from the attendees. Luckily for him he did manage to find some, somehow. []
  3. Of course, he did. He told everyone who'd listen about what a scam MPEx is, how dubious I am and how I'd probably just disappear one day with most everyone's money and asset info etc. []

  1. Why don't you make some video talking about bitcoin? Maybe one in spanish, talking better than this random guy.
