asciilifeform BingoBoingo: wtf is the point of the faux 'press' card ? [00:10]
BingoBoingo asciilifeform: It's issued by a (actual) church publication. What n00b would deny it? [00:11]
* asciilifeform at one point had an entirely genuine card from $censored_media_conglomerate and never found any good 'social engineering' use for it [00:12]
* asciilifeform was not involved in broadcast chumpatronics in any way, even remotely, but ended up having paycheques issued by one such thing by sheer accident [00:13]
BingoBoingo There's always opportunities [00:13]
* Vexual (~v@unaffiliated/vexual) has joined #bitcoin-assets [00:13]
asciilifeform where, exactly, does one get in by virtue of having such a thing, that you would wish to go ? [00:14]
* jordandotdev (uid7502@gateway/web/ has joined #bitcoin-assets [00:14]
BingoBoingo asciilifeform: In plaintext best to attribute things to the imagination. Various other credentials that legitimate religious organization offers work well for prisons, nursing homes, other institutions.... [00:15]
asciilifeform any idiot can print a card. [00:17]
asciilifeform not wunderwaffen. [00:17]
asciilifeform incidentally, dye-sub card printers are plentiful on 'ebay' and the like. [00:17]
BingoBoingo Sure any idiot can print a card, but special is the third pary that will keep a record of having issued such a card and affording it officialdom. [00:18]
asciilifeform creating such an 'organization' is basic spamatronics-101. [00:19]
asciilifeform using the same 'church' as 100,000 other would-be spamatronicists - fail. [00:19]
asciilifeform incidentally, if you want a mailing address inside an actual, historically-mapped church - it is trivial to arrange. [00:20]
asciilifeform many such properties in u.s. cities are hard up for cash and will rent as much as half the premises to random folks [00:20]
BingoBoingo Of course [00:21]
asciilifeform i was briefly a member of a kind of electronics club that met in a huge old church [00:21]
asciilifeform complete with massive circa-1920s boilers that didn't work [00:21]
BingoBoingo In USia there is a golden middle of Churches, generally for resource use you want an installation which is part of a larger mainline organization which happens to be helmed by a person favorable to yourself. [00:23]
asciilifeform caveat is that the ancient truce whereby usg would not openly fuck with a church - no longer really holds [00:24]
BingoBoingo Anything too new or independent tends to attract investigations for any number of reasons. [00:24]
BingoBoingo One good indicator though is people of the cloth who go for this sort of chumpatron are too be avoided [00:28]

asciilifeform lol re: footprint of 'grow room' garden pots [00:30]
asciilifeform vs. bed count [00:30]
asciilifeform one inevitably concludes that it grows only ganja for the occupants [00:31]
BingoBoingo Although in that example with their allocation of floor space I like how they in a historically justified manner unspokenly conceed the "dental Room" to all manner of surgery [00:31]

mircea_popescu dude got some pretty slick moves with da ladies i'll tell you that. [00:38]
asciilifeform BingoBoingo: i have no idea who the chumpatronicists in question are, or what they charge, but the drawings show that none of it has any relation to physical reality [00:38]
BingoBoingo asciilifeform: You've watch computer engineering long enough to know reality doesn't sell. Charging+Input port sells. Reflective screens sell. Actual reality doesn't sell. [00:39]

* CheckDavid has quit (Quit: Connection closed for inactivity) [00:42]
asciilifeform the funny thing is, that the cost of a reasonable death bunker is nearly equal to the cost of escape. [00:43]
BingoBoingo Then again the last really big LSD production bust in the US if I recall correctly was an Atlas-F silo used pretty much this way [00:43]
asciilifeform (taken as an approximate thing) [00:43]
BingoBoingo the funny thing is, that the cost of a reasonable death bunker is nearly equal to the cost of escape. << Yeah, seems at least as much as cost of escape. [00:43]

BingoBoingo asciilifeform: If I did foot the whole way still ~3-4 months late, not counting the antihills of the Darien [00:46]
asciilifeform sail might be faster. [00:46]
BingoBoingo It would, but requires sinking more costs on expendables. Considering indirect air travel. [00:48]
Vexual arent u on a river? [00:48]
mircea_popescu the funny thing is, that the cost of a reasonable death bunker is nearly equal to the cost of escape. << if you think about it, this is necessarily so. [00:49]

mircea_popescu well yes. prices are not unlike communicating vessels. [00:51]
mircea_popescu substantially the same thing wil lcost substyantially the same in a free market. and this is one. [00:51]
asciilifeform i get that it's a price signal [00:51]
asciilifeform but sorta failing to grasp precisely which. [00:52]
asciilifeform death bunker is not substantially the same thing as escape [00:52]
asciilifeform except in the 'fuck you i'm a dragon' (tm) sense, i suppose [00:52]
mircea_popescu right. [00:53]

asciilifeform my mind is still reeling that anyone, anywhere, might have swallowed the '3000 sq. ft for two dozen people', 'grow room' the size of bedroom, idiot hollywood 'motorcycle garage' and 'gun vault', etc. [00:57]
asciilifeform instead of taking twenty seconds to find well-documented fortifications built in recent history, as many photos, drawings as could ever wish [00:58]
* BingoBoingo imagines better layout than popular belief one is modest wood frame farmhouse with "bunker" portion used as underground farm/garage [00:58]
asciilifeform the concept of clandestine 'farm' with electric lights is a sufficiently familiar one that folks ought to be able to take a napkin calculation and say [00:59]
asciilifeform what kind of energy is required, for how much biomass [00:59]
asciilifeform and how much, e.g., diesel this translates into [00:59]
asciilifeform and what the mtbf of your turbine is [01:00]
asciilifeform and how much exhaust [01:00]
BingoBoingo Granted this is all easier if you conceed to having an RTG or twenty somewhere on the property. [01:00]
asciilifeform a large rtg is about 1kW. [01:01]

Vexual then you can recycle water [01:04]
asciilifeform Vexual: unless you're in particularly favourable geography (e.g. iceland) - the cost is roughly equal to orbit [01:04]
asciilifeform at any rate, basic formula that ought to put things in picture: take the mtbf of each life-critical piece of mechanism in your bunker [01:05]

assbot BitBet Propositions ... ( ) [03:55]
BingoBoingo DanTheBitcoinMan: BitBet tends to reject bets unlikely to attract betting action [03:56]
DanTheBitcoinMan I see, but I thought it would attract some good betting action. [03:57]
DanTheBitcoinMan So many idiots out there supporting this blatant scam, surely they would bet on it. Kind of like how the BFL Monarch delivery bet went. [03:57]
BingoBoingo DanTheBitcoinMan: I'm not a BitBet mod, but a short on XPY with small stakes looks like Garza looking to rob again [03:57]
mircea_popescu DanTheBitcoinMan the idea is for the proponent of the scamcoin in question to put btc down on it. [03:58]
DanTheBitcoinMan Ah, nevermind I completely didn't think about that. [03:58]
mircea_popescu this worked historically with bfl, stuck them for a decent sum [03:58]
DanTheBitcoinMan Yeah, they'd manipulate and dumb to oblivion to win the bet, last ditch effort if it got big enough [03:58]
DanTheBitcoinMan dumb = dump [03:59]

assbot The positive market effects of the delivery bet. pe Trilema - Un blog de Mircea Popescu. ... ( ) [03:59]
mircea_popescu anyway, the right way to go about it is, challenge garza or w/e is pushing the thing to put some btc down [03:59]
DanTheBitcoinMan Missed that one. The delivery bet needs to be used more often. [04:01]
mircea_popescu indeed. [04:03]
BingoBoingo Anyways the onus is on the deliverer or someone they've built faith in to initiate one of those [04:03]
BingoBoingo Thing is even Josh Zerlan knew where to put money down and Homero doesn't respect that. [04:05]
DanTheBitcoinMan Yeah, really, I'm sure that BFL placing that bet they still ended up convincing some poor souls that they truly were going to deliver [04:06]
DanTheBitcoinMan I guess it just costs them a little bit more to keep running their scams [04:06]
BingoBoingo DanTheBitcoinMan: And yet in the long run BFl lost so much more. [04:08]
DanTheBitcoinMan So what are everyone's thoughts here about Gavin running around and trying to promote his idea of raising the block size limit? Can anyone point me to a very good argument detailing the reasons this should be avoided? [04:09]

asciilifeform charlatans have been selling these steel coffins since mid-1950s. [12:09]
asciilifeform they were, at the dawn of that age, popular to such an extent, that a great many houses -still- have them buried in the yard [12:10]
asciilifeform and the owner does not even necessarily know [12:10]
mircea_popescu anyway, for the kids that didn't like physics class : any metal, if subjected to radiation such as a nuclear explosion, becomes a secondary source of gamma rays, as it slows down the rads. [12:10]

asciilifeform it's building 'openssl' on my box now. and probably will for a few hrs, it's a slow box [23:44]
decimation mod6: I set $FULL_CLEAN to "FALSE" and it didn't do anything different [23:45]
decimation I blew away build/.gnupg [23:46]
assbot [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 71419 @ 0.00036213 = 25.863 BTC [-] {3} [23:46]
mod6 here's that same script in dpaste: [23:46]
assbot dpaste: 36249E3 ... ( ) [23:46]
mod6 decimation: ok. that's fine. not sure what it's deal is. [23:46]
mod6 thanks for giving it a shot. [23:46]
decimation no problem [23:46]
decimation it's probably a good idea to get it working on centos6 because that's pretty much the 'amazon linux' shit [23:47]
mod6 eh, all around it's not much of an issue with the perl script, because no one will run that ever anyway. [23:47]
mod6 i'll use it to patch the source code, then i'll bundle up the release. [23:47]
* huseby has quit (Ping timeout: 252 seconds) [23:48]
mod6 everyone will start with an already patched codebase, unless they want to patch it manually or wrestle with one of the 2 scripts we have for this purpose [23:48]
mod6 it seems, everyone has a mixed bag so it's hard to account for all of that i think. [23:49]
decimation yeah cross-platform is a pain in the ass [23:49]
mod6 asciilifeform: this is the correct key to pull for you right? [23:51]
mod6 [23:51]
assbot Public Key Server -- Get "0xb98228a001abffc7 " ... ( ) [23:51]
mod6 decimation: anyway, it totally works fine for me on my aws machine. [23:54]
mod6 oh, i guess im running a deb6 ami up there. [23:54]
decimation lemme try [23:54]
mod6 and yeah, im using gpg 1.4.10 there too [23:55]
mod6 so centos6 might have issues if gpg 2.x, so maybe i just need to get my head out of my ass and add some code for that. [23:55]
