asciilifeform decimation: this is doubly lulzy because amex is the 'pay to play' cc issuer [00:00]
* decimation has costco amex, will drop when replaced next year [00:00]
decimation asciilifeform: yeah it is lulzy. I've heard from some small time merchants that amex dropped their transaction fees below visa/mc [00:00]
asciilifeform ag3nt_zer0: hard to argue that ~coins that never move~ are 'e-wallets behind one address' [00:00]
decimation they know a huge chunk of their business comes from rich folks with costco amex cards [00:01]
decimation asciilifeform: also somewhat little known about costco amex: you can walk in with your annual refund check and they will pay you in cash [00:02]
ag3nt_zer0 asciilifeform: could be wrong but I thought he was addressing the tx volume with that statement [00:02]
* julmac has quit (Ping timeout: 240 seconds) [00:02]
asciilifeform ag3nt_zer0: the 'atomic bomb' is - now, as when i wrote the piece- -- the mega-holdings under a sole key, which never move. [00:03]
asciilifeform this bomb is there, whether anyone wants to talk about it or not, and may - or may not - explode one day [00:04]
asciilifeform one might suppose that its existence is 'priced into the market' somehow. [00:04]
ag3nt_zer0 asciilifeform: oh that was you... very enjoyable reading btw... [00:04]
* shesek ( has joined #bitcoin-assets [00:05]
decimation asciilifeform: all that early btc is probably offset by the big chunk that has been lost forever [00:05]
asciilifeform ag3nt_zer0: the paper referenced in the article, however, has nothing to do with me [00:05]
BingoBoingo So Iran nuclear deal... Only actual impact is Persian agricultural goods pricing Israeli agricultural goods out of the market? [00:05]
asciilifeform decimation: thing is, nothing can ever be proven 'lost forever' [00:05]
decimation true. [00:05]
asciilifeform one, or none, of those keys - may turn up. [00:05]
decimation same with the 'satoshi horde' [00:05]
asciilifeform speaking broadly, of all of'em. [00:06]
mod6 well, at least `objdump -T bitcoind` shows: objdump: bitcoind-woNoShared: not a dynamic object DYNAMIC SYMBOL TABLE: no symbols [00:10]
mircea_popescu sounds legit. [00:10]
ag3nt_zer0 asciilifeform: do you still consider the bitcoin-p option as viable? [00:10]
asciilifeform ag3nt_zer0: it wasn't especially viable then. and after adoption as official usg policy in a mildly perverted form, i can't think of who might voluntarily work with such a thing today [00:11]
asciilifeform other than the moles [00:11]
* ColinT2 ( has joined #bitcoin-assets [00:11]
asciilifeform i certainly have no interest in it now. [00:11]
asciilifeform was mainly a gedankenexperiment, of somehow attaching wot ratings to coin in a permanent way. [00:12]
ag3nt_zer0 "adoption as official usg policy in a mildly perverted form" << via buterin's waterfall? [00:12]
asciilifeform nah [00:12]

mircea_popescu no but i like how he thinks [00:22]

trinque certainly [00:22]

trinque got 8 scsi drives though, so maybe there are goods to be found [00:23]

mod6 let's see if i can break diff... [00:24]
asciilifeform mircea_popescu: hmmpppfffmf! [00:24]
decimation asciilifeform: lol they don't wipe drives? [00:25]
asciilifeform apparently not. [00:25]
asciilifeform (firms that actually go under, will often leave intact 'fossils' of themselves) [00:26]
decimation too bad you don't have such goods for smbx [00:26]
asciilifeform decade+ too late [00:26]
asciilifeform quite possibly others - do [00:26]
asciilifeform i've said it before, and will say again - smbx is a dead end. i will not maintain crapcode that mit undergrads wrote in 1979. [00:27]
asciilifeform in all caps, no less. [00:27]
asciilifeform it is educational - yes. [00:27]
trinque << tramp stamp [00:27]
assbot ... ( ) [00:27]
asciilifeform building new things on it? even if usg were not getting in the way? not so appealing imho [00:28]
asciilifeform (for completeness, i will note that i will not maintain code mit undergrads wrote in '89. or '99. or '09. or at all.) [00:29]

BingoBoingo Anyone as of yet spot my OpenBSD 0.7-ish build in the wild. Returns version for the time being [00:32]
asciilifeform BingoBoingo: i'm still burning to learn why you're maintaining 0.7 [00:33]
asciilifeform if it's no secret [00:33]
BingoBoingo asciilifeform: Build on OpenBSD with flags I use and missing from 0.5.x atm like getpeerinfo [00:34]
BingoBoingo Also last pre-Hearnia release [00:34]
asciilifeform BingoBoingo: 'getpeerinfo' isn't so hard. consider contributing a patch ? [00:37]
BingoBoingo asciilifeform: working on understanding it first [00:37]
BingoBoingo Will likely get actual minrelaytxfee patch in first [00:42]

decimation asciilifeform: the most interesting part to me are the silicon design tools [00:49]
asciilifeform i specifically asked dks for those [00:50]
asciilifeform he (unsurprisingly) refused [00:50]
decimation heh [00:50]
asciilifeform could easily be the only part of the corp that's worth something on the open market [00:50]
decimation they might be shitware, but could be the nucleus of non-winblows designware [00:50]
asciilifeform nothing that existed and worked in '86 could really pass as shitware by today's standards. [00:51]
decimation yeah, good point [00:51]
* shesek ( has joined #bitcoin-assets [00:51]
decimation everything had to work and not be bloatware [00:51]
asciilifeform a toolchain that works ~without even a part per billion of microshit~ is pure plutonium, plain and simple [00:52]
asciilifeform by today's lights. [00:52]
decimation asciilifeform: do you sometimes phantasize about locking a group of promising young grads on an deserted island with only circa 1985 tools? [00:52]
asciilifeform nah just self [00:52]
decimation heh [00:52]
asciilifeform what do i need the derps for ? [00:52]
asciilifeform to cook my dinner, i suppose [00:53]
decimation staff [00:53]
decimation they could be human macros [00:53]
asciilifeform would almost rather cook own dinner, and not have to deal with derps in any capacity. [00:53]
asciilifeform this is one of the ways i differ from mircea_popescu [00:53]
BingoBoingo to cook my dinner, i suppose << Janatorial duties [00:54]
trinque I'd much rather automate things than have help [00:55]
asciilifeform ^ [00:55]
asciilifeform if anything, the turdalicious computer systems we have today are a consequence of cheap labour. [00:55]
asciilifeform why engineer anything, when a bottomless supply of monkeys with 'duct tape' can be had. [00:56]
trinque as if to drive the point home, some fucking drunk bum is hollering [00:56]
decimation asciilifeform: can shape desired object out of bondo? [00:56]
asciilifeform 'bondo, sanded to perfection' (mr mold) [00:58]
trinque cannot find a single mention on the web for [00:58]
trinque maybe it was an internal hostname [00:58]
trinque however I do find mention of these model HP servers being donated [00:58]
BingoBoingo Image the Hard drives, wipe all the everything [01:04]
trinque oh of course [01:05]
trinque I've got a 2tb I can dd all the drives to [01:05]
decimation heh I forgot that paragraph from yarvin: " [01:06]
decimation The basic problem is that the robber-barons of Silicon Valley, unlike their Victorian forebears, do not realize that, if they want all this science, they will actually have to pay for it - themselves. Instead, they look at their tax forms and think: I gave at the office." [01:06]
decimation "But they didn't. They gave to scientocracy. Now, they need to figure out how to patronize science - or there will be no science. Just scientific Bondo, sanded to perfection and painted with meticulous care." [01:06]
trinque not bad [01:06]
trinque and yet, yachts, hookers and blow have already been invented [01:07]

asciilifeform possibly others [01:53]
ag3nt_zer0 fair enough, maybe I am a gland junkie but I still find some of this stuff mildly shocking [01:53]
asciilifeform << esp. that one [01:54]
assbot Logged on 26-01-2014 19:43:12; asciilifeform: btw the chinese have scholars, of 'soviet collapse studies,' and some of their output is rather interesting and educational [01:54]

asciilifeform have been pissing and moaning about it through their maxint mouthpiece orchestra ever since. [01:56]
pete_dushenski the one that got away (tm) [01:56]
ag3nt_zer0 with a mild speculative inference that it was instrumental in inspiring the geramns to topple the wall [01:57]
ag3nt_zer0 and what if it hadnt gotten out? [01:57]
asciilifeform ag3nt_zer0: when you build mental world out of usg's 'legos', don't be surprised if you find yourself reaching their 'recommended' conclusions. [01:58]
ag3nt_zer0 what conclusion? [01:59]
asciilifeform any number of'em [02:00]
pete_dushenski << don't imagine this'll cheer up cazalla but i might be wrong. [02:00]
assbot China doubles down on Australian real estate ... ( ) [02:00]
asciilifeform like any industrial-strength chumpamatic, usg-history typically leads you to 'conclude'... the very premises of the syllogism behind the conclusions. [02:00]
asciilifeform as in the 'berlin wall' example above. [02:01]
pete_dushenski cazalla: if it makes you feel better, it's the same story in vancouver. [02:01]
ag3nt_zer0 yeah I hear you. ftr I didn't mean to imply that I concluded anything... [02:01]
pete_dushenski not that i really give a shit about vancouver, mind you, but it's sorta kinda not really in my backyard atm. [02:02]
asciilifeform ag3nt_zer0: examine the premises. for instance, ever wonder why the obsession with berlin wall ? [02:02]
ag3nt_zer0 asciilifeform: I am guessing not in the way that you might be about to tell me? [02:03]
asciilifeform i'm about to go to sleep, actually [02:04]
ag3nt_zer0 hehe [02:04]
asciilifeform but trying to encourage folks to think. [02:04]
ag3nt_zer0 no I appreciate it! [02:05]
ag3nt_zer0 I am interested [02:05]

asciilifeform i actually have no idea what their colours were prior. [02:12]
pete_dushenski is it some kind of fucking mid-day national holiday in shanghai ? [02:13]
pete_dushenski << another dead price feed. [02:13]
assbot SHCOMP - Shanghai SE Composite Index - ... ( ) [02:13]
pete_dushenski and i can't seem to source an explanation for the bloody thing [02:14]
pete_dushenski "Roman Dahl ‏@dahlroman 2m2 minutes ago #Chinese GDP beats the estm. 7% Y/Y vs 6.8%; Shanghai -2.17%; 24% of firms in trading halt." [02:15]
pete_dushenski another halt. so that's two in the past 5 trading sessions then ? [02:16]
pete_dushenski "nothing to see here, folks, just business as usual." [02:17]
pete_dushenski fuck, no wonder even 'foxconn' is getting the hell outta dodge and moving 1 mn workers to india [02:17]

assbot Logged on 08-07-2015 17:08:58; mircea_popescu: mod6 "our free market is this thing you can only buy!!1" [02:17]
pete_dushenski of course, the ever-convenient nyse 'glitch' [02:18]
asciilifeform pete_dushenski: notice the basic dynamic, of 'indias' being a non-renewable resource. [02:18]
pete_dushenski "A flight attendant testified Lander and Jason George Chase, a co-accused, used a coat to cover their laps to fondle each other." << on air canada flight. both 'criminals' now under house arrest and/or probation. [02:19]
asciilifeform there is a common misconception that collapse followed by sufficiently-many generations of starvation and abject degradation can 'reset' and get you a new 'india' in place of a worn-out, 'consumerized' husk [02:19]
asciilifeform this is not actually true. [02:19]
asciilifeform you are far more likely to get a new afghanistan. [02:20]
asciilifeform (notice that no one is building factories there) [02:20]
pete_dushenski asciilifeform: 'likely' being based on the peoples and their geography [02:20]
asciilifeform 'indias' are produces by a uniquely 20th c. process of industrially-powered overpopulation [02:20]
pete_dushenski let europeans starve and they'll reset alright [02:20]
asciilifeform they'll reset to pashtun mode [02:20]
asciilifeform go, exploit'em [02:21]
pete_dushenski i'm... busy. [02:21]
asciilifeform to round this off, in as far as i understand, india is the last remaining 'india'. [02:21]
asciilifeform (of those usable, at any rate.) [02:22]
pete_dushenski well to be fair to afghanistan, it's producing heroin like never before [02:22]
pete_dushenski gotta use what's available, not just whatever you'd like [02:22]
danielpbarron asciilifeform> i actually have no idea what their colours were prior. << someone archived it -- was red in 2012 [02:23]
assbot 上海证券交易所 ... ( ) [02:23]
asciilifeform agrarian system [02:23]
asciilifeform you don't need an 'india' to grow shit. [02:23]
pete_dushenski so mebbe factories are better in india and china, and poppy plantations are better in afghanistan, and wheat fields in ukraine [02:23]
asciilifeform pete_dushenski: the 'factories better' thing is the specific item i meant by 'an india' [02:23]

trinque looks like cldjango to me [03:54]
ben_vulpes lisprails, but yeah [03:55]
trinque so far I tend to think the object system is for UI doodads, not for the data model [03:55]
ben_vulpes but imagine if you were actually into self-serializing data structures you could hang all sorts of useful stuff off of CLOS classes that did db queries transparently [03:56]
ben_vulpes (and oop) [03:56]
trinque I tend to think Table is an object, not Customer [03:56]
trinque otherwise you have two ever-diverging data models to constantly sync up [03:57]

* btcdrak (uid52049@gateway/web/ has joined #bitcoin-assets [03:57]
trinque I still don't see how I'd use CLOS like I use view composition in the db [03:57]
ben_vulpes want to hear a dirty secret? [03:57]
trinque sure [03:57]
ben_vulpes our lispy crud stuff doesn't even formalize 'models' [03:57]
ben_vulpes we just have a bunch of functions called reset-password, set-user-whatever, update-user-whatever [03:58]
trinque I think that's the right way. [03:58]
ben_vulpes that poke mother pg in all of the right spots [03:58]
trinque 100% right [03:58]
ben_vulpes the weakness is that we don't use database constraints, which is where the oop model shines a bit [03:59]
ben_vulpes (in comparison at least) [03:59]
ben_vulpes we just kinda hand-wave and say "yeah man there are users, and this is how we diddle them in the database in this particular way" [03:59]
trinque can always throw an error if a particular slot is initialized to nil [03:59]
trinque in clos [03:59]
ben_vulpes sure [03:59]
ben_vulpes i guess this is the "small teams and discipline" approach [04:00]
ben_vulpes db constraints seem like a decent step. [04:00]
assbot [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 21013 @ 0.00055579 = 11.6788 BTC [+] [04:00]
ben_vulpes but on the flipside, another deploy target [04:00]
trinque in particular what I like about the approach of just editing the db is it doesn't try to say this is a "customer" action or an "order" or so on [04:01]
trinque bolting the behavior to anything other than a symbol is retarded [04:01]
trinque if you wanna mention "customer" in the name of the function, great [04:01]
trinque hm from a perspective that is advocating a lack of constraints [04:01]
trinque on that subj [04:01]
trinque as for db constraints, they can at least help when some logic is easier expressed if it is assumed that the data model has some expected structure [04:02]
trinque rather than having if statements handling the lack of that part of the data model in code [04:02]

mircea_popescu very nice work. nevertheless, it's still empty. [21:34]
mircea_popescu the lot. [21:34]
asciilifeform not empty. full of nonstd crud a la 'darkwallet' [21:34]
asciilifeform or rather, speaking of the wedge block [21:34]
mircea_popescu it's still "1" [21:34]
asciilifeform the 3 linked - i have not yet cut open [21:35]
asciilifeform mircea_popescu: read the linked ml turd yet ? [21:35]
mircea_popescu yes. [21:35]
mircea_popescu (i had read it before, too) [21:35]
asciilifeform aha! [21:35]
asciilifeform my present understanding is that these are wedgebombz [21:35]
asciilifeform that have not yet gone off. [21:35]
mircea_popescu well, inasmuch as my bitcoin doesn't eat the block, they have. [21:36]
mircea_popescu what i gathered from what you were saying yest was that they contain an actual spendable tx that will be accepted as input for future txn by future usg clients, thus forking off the legitimate network [21:36]
mircea_popescu which is obviously always a possibility but atm i don't see how it'd work. [21:37]
asciilifeform my current hypothesis re: 364671. [21:37]

mircea_popescu nobody relayed it it is not relayable. [21:39]

asciilifeform both [22:57]
decimation yeah I find lvm is a 'solution in search of a problem' [22:57]
mircea_popescu sheer militant retardation of centos's default partitioning scheme << what's wrong with it ? asked he cluelessly. [22:58]
asciilifeform 1) lvm exists 2) asinine 50/50 split of disk between 'root' and 'home' [22:59]
asciilifeform every time i ever used a binary dist of linux, ended up barfing from something like this [23:01]
asciilifeform i mean, 'what even' (tm) (r) [23:01]
asciilifeform someone was dropped as a baby ? [23:01]
mats lol. [23:01]
decimation asciilifeform: in fairness, what would a 'sane' scheme be? [23:01]
decimation one that uses no lvm and allocates most space to 'home' [23:02]
asciilifeform there was a menu thingie, 'use all disk' [23:02]
asciilifeform the sane thing to do is to NOT LIE MOTHERFUCKERS [23:02]
asciilifeform and actually use whole disk [23:02]
decimation for what? /boot? [23:02]
asciilifeform / [23:02]
decimation aye, agreed [23:02]

mircea_popescu 50/50 root/home split forced ?! [23:11]
mircea_popescu this sounds insane. i've never seen it on any centos server i ever owned. [23:11]
