mircea_popescu still the major problem will be that while on average say it's an ideal market, 0% bias, that average has a poisson distribution of maybe 15% each way, so any individual buyer could see a price fuzziness as close to 30% as his luck gets. [00:04]
mircea_popescu ie, want to sell for 20, sell anywhere between 17 and 23. [00:05]

midnightmagic Linus is a drunk, I don't know why anybody expects anything different from him. [03:33]

mod6 BingoBoingo: werd [03:34]
BingoBoingo dub: What's pink? [03:34]
midnightmagic I don't really care much about his attitude. But his brain is malfunctioning because he is drunk all the time. [03:36]
midnightmagic Also his drinking gets in the way of being a functional human. [03:36]
asciilifeform herr poettering is quite close to destroying linux as a going concern, imho. [03:38]
asciilifeform interesting that one usg mole could achieve this. [03:38]
BingoBoingo What is this shit? Did Hemmingway's drinking get in the way? Did Hunter S. Thompson's drinking get in the way? Maybe drinking is what keeps Linus effective in the face of Poetterings? [03:38]
asciilifeform a very curious 'effective' [03:39]
midnightmagic Other people being able to handle, or not, their drinking has nothing to do with whether Linus can. [03:40]
BingoBoingo asciilifeform: Well, Red Hat gave him the platform. Fedora has close ties with Gnome... Basically one mole and a turdware vendor set up dominoes. [03:40]
BingoBoingo midnightmagic: But where is the evidence Linus can't [03:41]
midnightmagic BingoBoingo: You mean aside from every major talk he's given in the last X years in front of an audience and bragged about how he got blotto'd the night before? [03:42]
BingoBoingo midnightmagic: That isn't ineffective. That's efficiency. Cramming as much living as possible into his time. [03:42]
midnightmagic Or do you mean aside from the steep decline in cognition in the last decade or so? [03:43]
midnightmagic Drinking until you can't remember is not "living." It is "dying." [03:43]
BingoBoingo If you get the success to get a big old role of drink tickets with your invite to speak at an event not using the decreases your compensation. Also drinking to forget clears crud out of the brain. [03:44]
midnightmagic I suppose that's so if you think your own body has no value. [03:45]
BingoBoingo midnightmagic: My body is a temple. Maybe it is some rural tribal arrangement made of straw held together with Giraffe shit, but god damn it, it is still a temple! [03:46]

mircea_popescu doing what you have to is for house servants. [22:31]
thickasthieves hallelujah [22:31]
bounce "deputy cto", such an interesting job title. [22:32]
mircea_popescu thickasthieves: Note that it's ironic that I actually made this purchase by mistake because I thought the "Deposit" button meant , yknow, depositing funds, not exchanging currencies. Your system of dollarifying all numbers is obnoxious. Let people type in bitcoin amounts and understand it as a separate currency. You're just confusing things." <<< they're not JUST confusing things. [22:33]

thickasthieves when i showed my wife the TBF nonprofit documents she commented "Chief Scientist" is an odd job title for a nonprofit [22:33]
mircea_popescu yeah well chief derp didn't sound as exciting to the prospective candidate [22:34]

thickasthieves not unheard of , but notbale [22:35]
thickasthieves i got some good typos today [22:35]
mircea_popescu lol [22:35]
mircea_popescu anyway, she needn't worry : the third party company is where the siphoned funds are headed. the foundation is just the scamming public front. [22:36]
rithm but this is the intertubes, it must be science'd [22:37]
thickasthieves she thought ot was the exec title at first, since he's the only guy on payroll [22:37]
