assbot ... ( ) [00:01]
wilbns mats: agreed, that is the challenge - what exactly is happening in the status quo. food shortages, never before seen droughts, threat of a credit bubble collapsing, the middle easten on the verge and russia/china moving further away in their relations w/ europe and the us each new day. what is next. [00:01]
trinque asciilifeform | trinque: which is a catgurl or the like. << LOL [00:01]

asciilifeform phf: entirely other fella, but familiar theme, aha [00:02]
wilbns mats: maybe. there was an interesting quote you just made me think of - "a recession is when your neighbor loses his or her job. a depression is when you lose yours" [00:03]
asciilifeform ^ orlov's 'you will not be told when collapse has happened, only when it has happened to ~you~' [00:03]
wilbns ah that's a good quote, so true [00:04]
asciilifeform the rest of the world failing around you is the early warning system << distinguish the natural (drought) from the usg-engineered (just about everything else) failures. [00:04]
asciilifeform to the engineers, those aren't failures. [00:04]
asciilifeform they are - successes. [00:05]
phf asciilifeform: have you read his чапаев и пустота? [00:05]
asciilifeform phf: aha! [00:05]
asciilifeform there is, iirc, even an english transl somewhere! [00:05]
BingoBoingo Last week I read a lot of "California beat the drought" stories based on more people in Compton working at McDonalds [00:05]
asciilifeform mats: usg, like wheat (the latter as described in mircea_popescu's essay 'when you become wheat') thrives in a half-destroyed world [00:06]
mats welp, i like a game of 'catch the falling knife' as well as anybody [00:06]

asciilifeform phf: girl digested it ?!!! [00:07]
phf first thing she asked what's up with russians and schwarzenegger [00:07]
wilbns it does seem the dollar is someone in store for a beating, perhaps that is what will stop interest rates from rising or enable more QE to continue [00:07]
wilbns somewhat* [00:07]
wilbns sheesh i don't know what's up w/ my spelling. [00:08]
BingoBoingo i am still unprepared to flee to .cn << We all have to contemplate destinations other than what we though were Door #1 [00:08]
BingoBoingo sheesh i don't know what's up w/ my spelling. << I'm drunk. It seriously affects everyone's spelling. [00:08]
mats folks the world over are buying USD as their own currencies get devalued by USG mismanagement [00:08]
wilbns haha [00:08]
mats this is what is presumably stopping interest rates from going up [00:08]
BingoBoingo ofc mats [00:09]
asciilifeform mats: been there, done that, traded a shoebox full of toiletpaper money (printed on usg-donated presses during collapse!) for $1 usd. [00:09]
asciilifeform (as a boy) [00:09]
mats i hope my dollars will still be good for renminbi exchange when the time comes [00:09]
phf asciilifeform: she enjoyed it, and picked up on some subtleties, in any case more then i expected, but i think it was good enough for first reading [00:10]
asciilifeform mats: they're good... now [00:10]
asciilifeform mats: buying ticket yet ? [00:10]
mats or, you know, the buttcoins, but i dunno whether we'll ever win the war at this rate [00:10]
BingoBoingo or, you know, the buttcoins, but i dunno whether we'll ever win the war at this rate << War was won. [00:11]
mats asciilifeform: nope, its at least five years in the distance [00:11]
asciilifeform why wait? [00:11]

asciilifeform if not - won't be in 5 years, or 55 [00:11]
mats for all practical purposes i am illiterate and have almost no meatwot there [00:11]
mats still need to eat [00:11]
asciilifeform mats is originally from cn ? [00:12]
BingoBoingo Given 2015 so far Hearnia must have planned to actually release XTCoin the first weekend of September. He ended up jumping the gun because USG pinoy spamzors. We won. [00:12]
phf i gave her "kniga oborotnya" and she concluded that the book was dull and poorly paced, which is something i agree with, probably my least favorite p book [00:12]

asciilifeform mats: then at least you have the mega-superpower that folks can't tell immediately by face that you couldn't possibly have meatwot [00:13]
wilbns it seems fiat currencies will continue to exist for many generations to come, perhaps actual paper form will deminish, but an electronic register or display of some number of dollars for whoever the viewer is, will carry with it some semblance of wealth [00:13]

assbot Logged on 13-02-2014 01:31:58; asciilifeform: ifetimes some tin-pot pseudo-nationalist leader will print up ugly slips of paper with pictures of dead people, Masonic symbols and big numbers, and attempt to charge people for using them as a medium of exchange in all transactions, and your great-grandchildren need to know, from an early age, that it is a scam. It is an official scvam, backed up by the threat of violence, but it is s [00:13]
BingoBoingo Hearn lost so bad "unidentified" turrorist bombed expat Thailand today. Presumably to try to get Goat and scare people with insulfation faith in USG out of defecting. [00:13]

mats can't do computing work if i can't even read the damned terminals [00:15]
BingoBoingo mats: What if your USG designated FEMA number puts your camp in southwest Missouri? [00:15]
wilbns these new derivative markets that are forming out of distributed / shared ledger technology could perhaps be the new stage for some form of electronic economy that will exist on a trillion/quadrillion level. the average person may only perceive that kind of scale at the end of the year, when milk costs $10 [00:15]
mats BingoBoingo: plz break me out, there is a bitcoin reward in it for you [00:15]
BingoBoingo mats: First I'll have to know you are in. Second I will have to not be in Chicago fema camp (because FEMA must take us to the places we hate most) [00:16]
phf mats: i have a former colleague from a financial firm, who moved to hk recently, he's chinese, but i take it his mandarin is poor and cantonese non-existent. he's working for an english speaking company there and slowly getting his language up to speed. his reasoning for the move was "this boat is leaking" [00:17]
mats phf: i have the same plan, but presumably further behind in my career than him [00:17]
BingoBoingo mats: What though is stopping you from moving to Aztalan? [00:17]
mats BingoBoingo: a state park? [00:17]

gribble | The area (as distinguished above) of Aztlan has been under the rule of invaders; ruthless, war-like, greedy imperial powers, since the Spanish first colonized it. [00:20]
mats why would zetas trust a chinese american citizen [00:20]
phf mats: he was a junior at the company, so not much of a career. i think the objective is to work for a company that has offices at multiple locations. when i worked for another bank that will remain nameless, the opportunity was always implied from the beginning. in fact a lot of places like that love people with no local attachments, because means easy and cheap relocation.

mircea_popescu it is actually common. [00:24]

mircea_popescu << the point here being (perhaps unfamiliar to some readers) that wheat is not a sort of plant that survives, except in particular situations : say post volcanic eruption, when everything's been burned down. then the weed makes a quick colonisation, because of its disproportionate seeds. [00:31]
assbot Logged on 18-08-2015 03:04:29; asciilifeform: mats: usg, like wheat (the latter as described in mircea_popescu's essay 'when you become wheat') thrives in a half-destroyed world [00:31]

mircea_popescu it should be noted that the civilisation that chose to feed itself on wheat, a plant famous for and a plant whose only strategy is, to overinvest in its progeniture [00:32]

* asciilifeform always insisted that either kansas ought to be pronounced 'kensaw', or 'arkansas' ought to be r-kansas. [00:33]

wilbns it is also challenging the fear of god society and some religious institutions instill in people in the area. originally from arkansas and lived there 22 years, experienced first-hand. was sent to religious camp in branson 7 years in a row. bizarre at times. btw, no offense to anyone in here's religious beliefs, none of my business. just putting forth an [00:51]
wilbns observation and personal experience. [00:51]
BingoBoingo wilbns: Thing is... While there are a lot of goups in that area which engage in such extreme sectarianism... Some on the girls are hot and the region is vulnerable to conquest by actual people. [00:53]

mircea_popescu anyway, to the expensive topic : it is an inconvenient but nevertheless incontrovertible fact that the price point for bitcoin tx is VASTLY above the pricepoint for "visa tx" or "bank tx". [15:34]
mike_c "The fact that the XT fork hasn't occurred yet is ridiculous," CoinWallet said. << I do so love the tears of rage and frustration. [15:34]

mircea_popescu ascii_field here's the model i propose to you : current debit is 1mn units/day, say, call this t0. "world ends" event, t1. prices spike 40-50% and social support wanes. demand drops 80%. this is t2. production stops, and the pipeline gets diverted to storage, this is t3. [17:05]
mircea_popescu the good now moves from pipeline to sotrage pricing, and as a result it will slowly dwindle as price goes exponential and demand collapses. [17:05]
assbot [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 9341 @ 0.0007116 = 6.6471 BTC [-] [17:06]
mircea_popescu so, sales of 100 units/day, at 100x what they cost a day, some point at t5. [17:06]
mircea_popescu that 1% total sale volume is the last sustainable place for it, after price increases past 100x demand collapses entirely and the good either becomes monetized or disappears outright, in the hands of collectors. [17:07]

mircea_popescu jurov nah it was like 3, and in any case the weather stayed bad and 90% of production was in the same area. [17:21]
mircea_popescu but yes : goods there moved from pipeline to storage like... halfway. 1/3 of a way really [17:21]
mircea_popescu price doubled. (price doubled specifically bnecause it wasn't all the way, incidentally) [17:21]
ascii_field the other thing is that price doesn't double when those directly hit can 'borrow' using shitflation - e.g., switch to chinese electrolytic capacitors instead of fukkupied jp parts [17:22]

mircea_popescu Adlai like mtgox btc./ [21:03]
Adlai fake btc (unlike the real thing) exists solely in the mind of its bagholders [21:03]

Adlai tx? block? node? [21:08]
asciilifeform Adlai: blokc. [21:09]
mircea_popescu block we're discussing [21:09]
asciilifeform and i don't even see a list of blocks [21:09]

asciilifeform it is NOT THE SAME !!1111 [21:09]
asciilifeform don't lie and say 'same'. [21:09]

asciilifeform signal with farts. [21:09]

Adlai wow, webbtc really is slow right now [21:10]
asciilifeform and yes, bci is a loathesome usg-operated item, sure. [21:10]

assbot dorodango | create ... ( ) [21:13]
mircea_popescu a) dude wtf, gimp is the worst example for this, srsly ; b) your own block dump thing actually works for the purpose you discussed, chillax already ; c) there are all sorts of block explorers, yes. it'd be nice if one day someone makes the blockdump one we discussed but that's about it. [21:13]
asciilifeform mircea_popescu: it is actually the best example. of a proggy which naive folks suggest 'will do all the same things' [21:14]
mircea_popescu that's not the suggestion. what's said is that gimp is like lisp : if what you want to do can't be done in gimp iot's because you're either stupid or stupid. [21:14]
mircea_popescu ie, want to do something that shouldn't be done, or can't figure out how to find someone's pre-made lisp script [21:14]
mircea_popescu (yes, gimp trivially works on lisp) [21:14]
asciilifeform mircea_popescu: go and tell this to a pro artist who has a 14-bit pressure and gyroscopic sensor 'wacom' drawing tablet that pays his rent. [21:15]
asciilifeform that does not work with gimp. [21:15]
mircea_popescu it's current;ly the only practical application i (or ANYONE ELSE, given that eulora challenge) have for lisp [21:15]
asciilifeform it or the 1,001 affine transform items it needs [21:15]
mircea_popescu "artist" using "drawing tablet" is retarded by definition. [21:15]
asciilifeform mircea_popescu: i have yet to meet an actual pro or semi pro who draws with mice [21:16]
asciilifeform or still draws with ink and scanner [21:16]
mircea_popescu it is roughly the equivalent of a "really professional chess player" who plays chess in the dark and moving the pieces with his asshole. [21:16]
mircea_popescu isn't he elite!!1 [21:16]
asciilifeform mno [21:16]
asciilifeform that'd be the OTHERS [21:16]
asciilifeform without tablet. [21:16]
mircea_popescu mice ? wtf. [21:16]
asciilifeform moving pieces with arse. [21:16]
mircea_popescu you draw with the fucking pencil. [21:16]
asciilifeform go vectorize that. [21:17]
asciilifeform or what, vector does not exist, aha ? [21:17]
asciilifeform all graphics are no larger than sheet of paper ? [21:17]
asciilifeform or metre-tall pixels are ok on billboard [21:17]
mircea_popescu so wait. "wacom doesn't work" is an objection to gimp, [21:17]
mircea_popescu but "vector is hard" is an argument pro ps ? [21:17]
asciilifeform it is for the man who doesn't program device drivers. [21:17]
mircea_popescu how about backwards! [21:17]
asciilifeform and you can't vectorize a pencil [21:17]
asciilifeform not via machine anyway [21:17]
mircea_popescu fact that wacom doesn't work with software means you can go fuck it, and fact that vectors are hard means you're still better off with gimp [21:17]
mircea_popescu at least you can SCRIPT IT [21:18]
asciilifeform the man who can program in scheme, can script it. [21:18]
mircea_popescu the man who can't hires one. [21:18]
asciilifeform and the artsy fella ? [21:18]
asciilifeform hires, l0l [21:18]
asciilifeform on artist's wages ? [21:18]
mircea_popescu so your artist IS retarded after all. [21:18]
asciilifeform of course. [21:18]
mircea_popescu not only he spent his money on something thar doesn't work [21:18]
mircea_popescu but it was his last money, too. [21:18]
asciilifeform i can already picture the conversation: [21:19]
asciilifeform cabbie: 'this ford is a piece of shit. stalled again.' mircea_popescu: 'i have a solution!' cabbie: 'oh???111' mircea_popescu: 'here, have this broomstick.' cabbie: 'how do i drive customers on that, feed my family' mircea_popescu: 'you misunderstand, my good man. you stuff it in your arse.' cabbie: 'and... how does this feed by family?' mircea_popescu: 'no, you sit there with it in.' [21:20]
asciilifeform before anyone laughs, this approach has much to recommend it [21:21]
asciilifeform and in fact is sop in 'open source' world [21:21]
asciilifeform when dealing with civilians. [21:21]
trinque too late, laughed. [21:21]
mircea_popescu get the fuck outta here omfg! [21:21]
asciilifeform dollars to doughnuts everybody here has applied precisely this formula, and in fact no other is known. [21:21]

mircea_popescu i call bullshit. brb while i prove it. [21:22]
trinque I mean to be fair, what the man's saying is that gimp has a scripting layer [21:22]
trinque makes total sense [21:22]
trinque jack your wacom into that or what? [21:22]
asciilifeform it does! [21:22]
asciilifeform lovely scripting layer, too [21:22]
asciilifeform and for all i know, somebody ported wacom to it in last 7 or what years since i last cared [21:22]
mircea_popescu so basically you admit you got nothing. [21:22]
mircea_popescu good, saves me from fishing out that file setting up a challenge. [21:23]
* BingoBoingo still arts with oil paints [21:23]
asciilifeform can find other hardware that is pro sop and not supported by any reasonable open package [21:23]

asciilifeform e.g., laboratory robotics [21:23]
mircea_popescu hardware that doesn't work doesn't work [21:23]
asciilifeform no open anything. [21:23]
mircea_popescu this is not to be excused in software. [21:23]
mircea_popescu wtf bs is this! [21:24]
asciilifeform hardware without which job isn't done - must work. even if operator has to fellate obama. [21:24]
asciilifeform which - he will. [21:24]
mircea_popescu no. [21:24]
asciilifeform or changes jobs [21:24]
asciilifeform (as i did) [21:24]
mircea_popescu no bad piece of hardware is required by anyone but idiots. [21:24]
mircea_popescu period and full fucking stop, there isn't even what to discuss here. [21:24]
mircea_popescu all that can be done is repeating nonsense reddit style. [21:24]
mircea_popescu "oh noes, how about cabbie". pshhhh [21:24]
asciilifeform mircea_popescu: i'll bite. find me a mass spectrometer with fully open specs [21:24]
asciilifeform or for that matter, GPU! [21:24]

asciilifeform mircea_popescu: not good thing. but it is a jail [21:25]
mircea_popescu completely ungermane spurious argument is orthogonal! [21:26]
mircea_popescu da fuck do i care what jwz blames. [21:26]
mircea_popescu "oh i really just want my computer to just work hurr" [21:26]
asciilifeform pointing out that this is not one of those jails which disappears if you stop believing in it [21:26]
asciilifeform and yes, they do. [21:26]
* assbot removes voice from olol [21:26]
mircea_popescu has nothing to do with belief. [21:26]
mircea_popescu ps turns out, without excewption, in all cases, inferior work, BECAUSE IT SUCKS. it. irretrievably, it ruins work. [21:26]
asciilifeform they want their spectrometer/chromatograph/triaxial robot/etc/... to work. [21:27]
mircea_popescu and has, for 10-15 years now. [21:27]
mircea_popescu claiming otherwise because you got your sexual advances turned down by a mass spectrometer is nuts. [21:27]
trinque relatedly, I have a 1 for relaxedman when he comes back. I yelled at him to *read* his way through snags with gentoo, and he did! [21:27]
mircea_popescu neither jwz nor mass spectrometers nor anything else has any bearing here. [21:27]
asciilifeform mircea_popescu: it sure does suck. like most of the turdalicious offerings. but it is a mistake to suppose that folks use it on account of not having been woken up to the existing alternative [21:27]
mircea_popescu not in THIS case [21:27]
mircea_popescu which is why i said it's the worst example you could have come up with [21:27]
trinque did not bitch "oh but it didn't work out of the box" [21:27]
* asciilifeform may be missing something here [21:27]
mircea_popescu in the ps-gimp case, the only reason is strictly user being an imbecile. [21:28]
mircea_popescu yeah, you're missing the something where gimp is pretty much the only foss success in the actual marketplace. [21:28]
mircea_popescu ie, it saves man-hours. many. many many man hours. [21:28]
mircea_popescu that and fucking blender. [21:28]
asciilifeform blender, incidentally, was ransomed. [21:28]
mircea_popescu myeah. [21:28]
asciilifeform possibly the greatest antisuccess, from that pov. [21:28]
mircea_popescu being run by a bunch of incredibly idiotic idiots, yes. but still. [21:29]
asciilifeform in that it began life as an ordinary commercial package, written by folks who worked for a living [21:29]
mircea_popescu the software itself is os, and it does work. [21:29]
asciilifeform is today, yes. [21:29]
mircea_popescu this is what we're discussing [21:29]
asciilifeform was ransomed, for, iirc, 800K usd. [21:29]
* asciilifeform does not use blender with any regularity and cannot comment further [21:29]
mircea_popescu i don'trecall, but maybe cvut a digit. anyway, hgow is this related ? [21:29]
asciilifeform related in the sense that it is not 'ethnically open source' [21:30]
mircea_popescu ... [21:30]
asciilifeform was born under conditions that are not available in the 'open source' world. [21:30]
mircea_popescu and you're not ethnically a programmer. [21:30]
mircea_popescu wtf nonsense is this. [21:30]
asciilifeform in precisely that sense [21:30]
mircea_popescu there isn't a nation called "Programmer". [21:31]
asciilifeform there almost is, and it is the one pictured in sebastian brandt's 'ship of fools' [21:31]
asciilifeform (mega-b00k, recommended to all) [21:31]
BingoBoingo relatedly, I have a 1 for relaxedman when he comes back. I yelled at him to *read* his way through snags with gentoo, and he did! << Promised the same for OpenBSD, but... [21:31]
trinque can't speak to that, but the guy got himself booted, through X and a DE, so I can dig that. [21:32]
mircea_popescu anyway. yes usg can be rejected just by rejecting it. no, there aren't places where this actually hurts one. yes if one perceives to be hurt it's because one did something stupid in the past he'll have to undo. no this isn't anyone else's problem and no this calls for no sympathy. [21:32]
asciilifeform this is entirely true [21:32]
asciilifeform but the 'stupid move' can be - the choice of profession. [21:33]
mircea_popescu only if the "profession" is saomethiong like "pop star", [21:33]
mircea_popescu ie, not a profession. [21:33]
asciilifeform or vector artist. [21:33]
mircea_popescu mno. [21:33]
asciilifeform or spectrometer user. [21:33]
* assbot removes voice from EPiSKiNG- [21:33]
mircea_popescu neither. [21:33]
asciilifeform mircea_popescu: be so kind as to describe what the mass spec user ought to be doing [21:33]
mircea_popescu and don't start with "gimme free stuff in very ellaborate detail of compelx usage". [21:33]
asciilifeform to escape from shitblows [21:34]
mircea_popescu buy spectrometer, 2nd hand. reverse it or pay for it be reversed. run it on sane computer. [21:34]
asciilifeform let's work this gedankenexample? [21:34]
asciilifeform mircea_popescu: and pay to have sane computer produced ? [21:34]
mircea_popescu useful life of the tool is 30 years +, so. you get to "break it in" for a few months first. [21:34]
mircea_popescu a "sane-indistinct" computer can be had for the task as defined, out of shelf parts. [21:35]
asciilifeform mircea_popescu perhaps did not think that usg could be any moar retarded than it looks already, but here is a mega-secret: a great many (most?) u.s. laboratories have personnel empowered to purchase materiel (e.g., spectrometer) but not ever hire anyone. [21:35]
asciilifeform hence no reverser. [21:35]
mircea_popescu i do nopt care about the problems of tribes in africa. [21:36]
mircea_popescu why do you ? [21:36]
asciilifeform except when one appears by accident (as my old job) [21:36]
asciilifeform because i live there. [21:36]

asciilifeform mircea_popescu: apparently not? [23:50]
mircea_popescu when the price goes 10 / 7 it is because the people selling the fake btc do no wish to run their meagre offering into the bids of 10 [23:50]
