mircea_popescu i ended up with a "refund".
asciilifeform ah. btw you also have a $40 shop credit at macrofab

asciilifeform (the last-minute quartz resonator substitution i made cut a dime off unit cost)

mircea_popescu nice.

mircea_popescu i use it mostly to interface with the poor but stupid young women.

mircea_popescu danielpbarron you got a paypal account ?
danielpbarron yeh

mircea_popescu can i send you 100 bux for eu coppers ?
danielpbarron ..

mircea_popescu i ended up with a refund from dumbass fiat company that "takes" bitcoin. what can i say.
danielpbarron well i don't really want to sell coppers but i'm guessing you wound up with a paypal balance you don't want
mircea_popescu you guessed exactly right. jesus fuck can't give dollars away these days. nobody wants 'em.

danielpbarron i guess i'd want them for the right price but the right price is usually something the other party doesn't want
mircea_popescu o.o
mircea_popescu what'd be the right price here ?

danielpbarron usually i sell bitcoin for like 20% markup
mircea_popescu well it's your lucky day. pgp me your acct.

    How long did you say before your 401k or whatever it's called ? []

  2. The message being that yes there's a reason it cost BART 5bn to build 16 track miles. That reason is that the dollar is so unwanted, you can't give it away.

    Good luck with that Great Again and things. []
