mircea_popescu by the way, did you know girls can get strep cunt if you give them head while you have strep throat ? [00:00]
mircea_popescu apparently it's awful. [00:00]
thickasthieves strp just say what you want or leave me alone [00:00]
* dub didn't [00:00]
strp thickasthieves, I understand this but I came in here at your request. This can hardly be called spamming. If you don't like my suggestion, just say so. :) [00:00]
thickasthieves this is what i get for saying i can troll, isnt it [00:01]
* mats_cd03 (sid23029@gateway/web/ has joined #bitcoin-assets [00:01]
strp thickasthieves, I told you what I'm looking for. You got a recommendation as a level-headed, responsible person, and if you would like to partner with an ambitious, mercurial, head-strong, impulsive, capricious one who has wildly expansive plans, then tell me. If not, it's okay. [00:01]
deedBot Bundled: [00:01]
thickasthieves Yes, strp you are just the man I'm looking for, where do we begin? [00:02]
strp Well, I'd assume skype, and we can see if there's a match? [00:02]
dub first you gotta take off joor shoes [00:02]
thickasthieves can we talk here? [00:02]
asciilifeform obligatory: [00:03]
strp I don't know anything about you, and I'd assume you wouldn't want to discuss it in a logged forum. It is difficult to have an uknnown as a business partner without sharing anything, don't you think? [00:03]
mircea_popescu mats_cd03: IS ANYTHING ON THE INTERNET REAL << wasn't there a snopes debunk about this urban legend where someone supposedly asked once if things on the internet are real ? [00:03]
thickasthieves you assume incorrectly [00:03]
thickasthieves i love doing business here [00:03]
strp well, when I asked about super-basic and general background information, I got an extremely negative response. [00:03]
dub get paul graham in here [00:04]
strp why? [00:04]
thickasthieves i'm a sensitive man [00:04]
dub he's your bff remember [00:04]
thickasthieves it's part of my level-headed responsible charm [00:04]

mircea_popescu how about cisco needs more bankruptcy [00:05]
jurov who is strp? [00:05]
strp dub, well I did just write him an emial let me check... literally a 1 hour and 16 minutes ago. [00:05]
thickasthieves i have mail?! [00:05]
strp no, not you. [00:05]
dub jurov: ninjashogun [00:05]
strp he's trolling me on my YC relationships. [00:05]
strp dub, if you weren't trolling --- you would have a lot more luck getting Sam Altman (the current YC president) in here. He has taken a HUGE liking to crypto currencies. [00:06]
thickasthieves oh you are connected to ninjashogun? [00:06]
mircea_popescu mats_cd03: seems i'm wrong, i need someone that knows more finance than me to chime in << what is the q again ? [00:06]
mircea_popescu strp if we didn;'t think him an idiot that argument may hold more value. [00:06]
strp dub, see here for example: He is going to give out free equity in Reddit. (10% of the funds it raises on its latest fundraising round) [00:07]

mircea_popescu strp free "equity" in reddit is worth abut the same as free equity in ethereum, [00:08]
thickasthieves strp i'm talking about you, i;m simply asking you to state your business [00:08]
strp thickasthieves, if (as anyone normal) you would prefer to do it privately you can also PM me an introduction. I don't know anything about you other than that you hang out in -assets and were recomended as responsible and level-headed. [00:08]

mircea_popescu "In one case, they showed that the infected USB can impersonate a keyboard to type any keystrokes the attacker chooses on the victim’s machine. Because it affects the firmware of the USB’s microcontroller, that attack program would be stored in the rewritable code that controls the USB’s basic functions, not in its flash memory—even deleting the entire contents of its storage wouldn’t catch the malware. Other [00:23]
mircea_popescu firmware tricks demonstrated by Caudill and Wilson would hide files in that invisible portion of the code, or silently disable a USB’s security feature that password-protects a certain portion of its memory." [00:23]

mircea_popescu better access to bus than a shitty usb [00:31]
mircea_popescu mostly because the usb "standard" looks like something gavin, taaki and that other guy put together. [00:32]
asciilifeform mircea_popescu: fetish for usb is because contagion. 'everybody' carries the usb drives. or something like that. [00:33]

The20YearIRCloud The real disconnect is : Do you have a quality team of programmers that know what they're doing or not [01:19]
The20YearIRCloud Prior to HASH and his contract work, Ben did data anaylis for a Icann company, and learned quite a bit about the seedy underbelly of video games [01:20]

mircea_popescu this is quite universal. [01:23]
The20YearIRCloud of course, but from what i've seen video game developers are even worse. So many pseudo-artists deciding that it's all better than a lotto ticket. They spent several million on a game that made something like a hundred dollars [01:24]

mircea_popescu the thing with that is... people have waited for a while. as a result the sides are weight-unbalanced. the seed 1k on yes has a 100k weight whereas current bets only get 40k [04:51]

mircea_popescu reddit isn't there to build something useful. [07:02]
Dimsler i know [07:02]
DanielKrawisz Basically, we started out as an econ discussion group at a university called the Mises Circle, but then I got everyone talking almost exclusively about bitcoin. [07:02]
mircea_popescu reddit is there to try and leech something if at all possible. sort-of like an online hot topic. [07:02]

mircea_popescu especially if the bad instigation puns started flowing., [07:06]
DanielKrawisz Well we wanted to use that name because we agreed that a lot of the bitcoin world was trying to downplay him. [07:06]
Dimsler people that put bit or coin into anything should be publically flogged [07:06]
mircea_popescu you mean cryptopublically bitflogged ? [07:06]
DanielKrawisz Hahaha [07:06]
Dimsler DanielKrawisz, because cryptographics was not invented by him [07:06]
Dimsler and cryptographic based currencies and other online currencies have been around since digicash [07:07]
Dimsler which was like 1989 [07:07]
mircea_popescu DanielKrawisz that's unavoidable. it's the nature of the ignorant twerps making up the us horde, to overplay their own narcisism against history. [07:07]
DanielKrawisz Digicash is very different from bitcoin. [07:07]
mircea_popescu i'm surprised nobody's yet acting as if they invented hitler, back in iowa or something [07:07]
DanielKrawisz It's a money substitute, like a bank note. I'm writing a paper on this stuff now. [07:07]

mircea_popescu asciilifeform right you are, huh. [07:08]
mircea_popescu Dimsler wouldja stop trying to drive people into a wall deliberately. [07:08]
DanielKrawisz Then there were some proposals for digital collectibles; b-money, RPOW, and bit gold. Those things were an important step forward, but RPOW was the only one ever implemented, and it didn't take off. I don't think they would have worked. Bitcoin fixed a lot of stuff that they got wrong. [07:08]
Dimsler lol ok ok [07:08]
mircea_popescu yeah, like, penicillin fixed a lot of stuff shaman cures got wrong. [07:09]
mircea_popescu let's be clear here : wanting something, no matter how intensively, is NOT grounds for relation with the thing once made. [07:09]

mircea_popescu "He's a very bad person," said Heidi Beirich, director of the intelligence project at the Southern Poverty Law Center in Montgomery, Ala., which tracks hate groups. << actually, heidi is the bad person here. [07:39]

mircea_popescu decimation myeah, actual science is for rich people, not for clerks. [07:49]
Dimsler just like BA studies are [07:49]
mircea_popescu people who hope to make their living at science can not be considered scientists. that should be the first crtierion on the peer review process. "independently wealthy ?" if no, can not participate in science. [07:50]
bounce with nice hand-blown instruments in brass cases! [07:50]
mircea_popescu this seems obvious enough with say, love. people who hope to earn a living at it can't really make very good lovers. [07:50]
decimation mainly because they have the 'free time' that asciilifeform desires [07:50]
mircea_popescu yet somehow when it leaves that realm everyone's suddenly confused. [07:50]
decimation probably the same thing with medicine too [07:51]
mircea_popescu with the independent professions it becomes more iffy. doctors and lawyers earned their keep doing the job for centuries without ill effect. [07:51]
Dimsler medicine is such nigger work [07:51]
mircea_popescu for just as long as they depended for pay on their own customers. [07:51]
bounce plenty scientists have done so on sufferance of the local lord, no reason why they couldn't do it on sufferance of the government [07:51]
mircea_popescu once they started being paid by corporations / the state, it all went to shit. [07:51]
Dimsler i don't know a single non-american doctor who isn't miserable [07:52]
mircea_popescu bounce name one. [07:52]
mircea_popescu Dimsler i know plenty. [07:52]
decimation as the link I put up yesterday explained, most doctors did more to hurt than heal before 1900, the 'talented amateur' was the local nurse lady who would try to keep you comfortable [07:52]
bounce pfft. too early to do the research. [07:52]
mircea_popescu bounce then allow me to use this opportunity to expose before your eyes your own automatism. [07:52]
mircea_popescu what other places is it operant ? [07:53]
Dimsler problem with being a scientifist in todays modern age is you aren't working from home [07:53]
Dimsler you're stuck in academia [07:53]
mircea_popescu decimation dubious theory, but anyway. [07:53]
Dimsler very dubious [07:53]
mircea_popescu generally the problem is that people ascribe the benefits of santiation to medicine. this is false. [07:53]
mircea_popescu actual doctors today are about as hacky/harmful as they were cca 1714. [07:54]
Dimsler correct [07:54]
mircea_popescu mostly because the problem they face is so complex. [07:54]
Duffer1 speaking of dr, that coffee was a big hit, thanks for the suggestion MP [07:54]
decimation yeah I would say that's probably true in most cases [07:54]
mircea_popescu Duffer1 cheers. [07:55]
Dimsler which coffee? [07:55]
decimation until someone can give an engineering-level account of the human body and all its processes, it's gonna stay that way [07:55]
Duffer1 nurse gifts, 3lbs of primo coffee per shift [07:55]
Duffer1 and for dr [07:55]
mircea_popescu decimation you can appreciate the shittyness of it, right ? suppose you were given the task of fixing code you may not read running on a one of a kind processor you don't even have the spec for. [07:55]
mircea_popescu and then blamed you for the results, but praised "nature" for the success. [07:56]
decimation yeah, it's a delicate microstructure and your tools are basically 'hammer' and 'sledge' [07:56]

asciilifeform say +10 lifespan, whatever. who gets credit? [07:59]
asciilifeform doctors? nope [08:00]
asciilifeform similar to sanitation example. [08:00]
decimation asciilifeform: the scanner would have to see down the molecules to determine malignancy in-situ [08:00]
mircea_popescu i doubt malignancies are the main problem. i think the main problem of medicine today is still metabolism [08:00]
mircea_popescu mirroring exactly the situation in the times of mr h. [08:01]
asciilifeform decimation: not necessarily. just monitor for out-of-place masses, would go a long way. [08:01]
asciilifeform consider, elsewhere: [08:01]
mircea_popescu three thousand years and uncountable changes in everything later. [08:01]
asciilifeform firemen get (and deserve) no credit for the relative incombustibility of modern dwellings compared to those of the past. [08:01]
Dimsler lol the past? [08:01]
Dimsler you mean like [08:01]
Dimsler concrete? [08:01]
asciilifeform pre-concrete [08:01]
mircea_popescu actually... i think us houses are the most combustible things ever in the history of dwellings. [08:02]
Dimsler there was firemen pre-concrete? [08:02]
asciilifeform (if you must, old japan vs. current) [08:02]
mircea_popescu Dimsler firemen have as much history as the french. [08:02]
Dimsler yeah like the combustable house and obsession with firemen is a north american thing [08:02]
decimation well, loads of bureaucrats have been harassing people to spray various dubious fireproofing chemicals on everything [08:02]
asciilifeform Dimsler: nope. in japan, far greater obsession even. [08:02]
mircea_popescu yeah but in japan they have cause. [08:02]
Dimsler yeah i know [08:02]
asciilifeform paper houses. just like present-day usa. [08:02]

decimation pediwiki: The term relay rack appeared first in the world of telephony.[2] By 1911, the term was also being used in railroad signaling.[3] There is little evidence that the dimensions of these early racks were standardized. The 19-inch rack format with rack-units of 1.75 inches and holes tapped for 12-24 screws with alternating spacings of 1.25 inches and 0.5 inch was an established standard by 1934.[4] The EIA standard was revised [08:49]
decimation again in 1992 to comply with the 1988 public law 100-418, setting the standard U as 44.5mm (15.9mm + 15.9mm + 12.7mm), making each "U" officially 1.752 inches.[5] [08:49]
decimation apparently it's 1.75 + 2 mil - probably to fit the shelving [08:50]

pete_dushenski_ maybe they should just make an ebola to target moslems? [09:16]
decimation well, it would be cheaper for the us to simply ban pakistani immigration rather than try to be omniscient w.r.t. pakistani terrorism and so forth [09:16]
pete_dushenski_ it'd be more cost-effective! [09:17]
mircea_popescu decimation why do you suppose banning immigration does anything ? [09:17]
decimation well, I would ban all forms of border crossing [09:17]
mircea_popescu on what border ? [09:17]
decimation from selected states [09:17]
decimation heh good point [09:18]
mircea_popescu you could directly experiment with this idea. you could draw a line in your room, and ban all crossings of that line. see if it does anything for any variable you wish to measure. [09:18]
mircea_popescu i imagine at best it'd to nothing perceptible, if you choose the line well. [09:18]
mircea_popescu but otherwise it can become a major pain. [09:19]
decimation this problem largely solved itself in the past when only somebodies could afford to travel [09:19]

decimation at any rate I'm sure that these hick canidates will be promoted so that their hatred can become a shared experience for their political enemies [09:26]
mircea_popescu guy doesn't seem motivated by anything but the usual driver of reality show attendants. [09:27]
mircea_popescu that ain't hate. [09:27]
mircea_popescu and for that matter, people tend to flatter themselves with that word a lot. an ability to hate is strictly realted to spending time in conditions not available to the average english speaking derp. [09:28]
mircea_popescu much like love ain't available to the same populace. [09:28]
decimation My language was imprecise: I meant that that he would be the object of common hatred [09:29]
decimation or at least common derision [09:29]

mircea_popescu "Mayo noted that Frazier Glenn Miller, who was a member of the Ku Klux Klan and other white supremacist groups, ran for the U.S. Senate in Missouri in 2010. He was charged this year in the shooting deaths of a 14-year-old boy and his grandfather outside an Overland Park, Kan., Jewish community center." [09:30]
mircea_popescu lol these obnoxious pests. [09:30]
mircea_popescu im sure there's no libtard that ever killed anyone. o.O [09:31]
decimation heh when a libtard kills someone it's just because he's crazy, not for any political reason [09:31]
mircea_popescu well... there's a lot of merit in that. how else could his alleged "political" oppinions be explained. [09:32]
decimation I guess my point is that the media likes to trump up the crazy nazi kkk guy when there were 415 murders in chicago last year [09:33]
thestringpuller d0000d [09:34]
decimation and 33,561 traffic deaths (in the us) [09:34]
mircea_popescu if it makes you feel any better, the media does the same here. there were i dunno, like five murders in a 20mn pop town. [09:34]
mircea_popescu that's what, 5x la [09:34]
decimation if the average us guy even knows where south america is, he perceives the cities as basically gigantic barrios with constant death [09:35]
mircea_popescu they are gigantic barrios, but the only constant is fucking. [09:36]

pete_dushenski_ decimation: was 300 10 years ago, now 225. [09:45]
mircea_popescu yeah, something like that. i think they mostly perceive it as a combined fuckhole/shithole/eatery [09:46]

BingoBoingo I don't think the current super mininum style is going to be a permanent feature on qntra, but... page load times are a thing. Got to plan for people accessing the internet using dialup through a payphone. [22:51]

thickasthieves i'm saying both extremes are [22:52]
* punkman remembers the derps trying to do webfonts before we had webfonts [22:52]
bounce in this case it might be more useful to not stick one pane on the right and another on the left hand side, but position them relative to each other instead [22:53]
bounce or let the browser put them next or below each other, depending on actual window width. [22:54]
thickasthieves the problem is you cant get browsers to fall in line to that kinda thing [22:54]
thickasthieves ie microshit everything displaying diff [22:55]
bounce you'd have to release the notion of getting an identical picture everywhere. you're not serving up "an experience" or "a picture" or whatever, you're serving up content. [22:55]
