adam_obrien I own bitcoin solutions ( we operate some Bitcoin ATMs as well as a margin trading platform [00:17]
danielpbarron i can get it soldered, i just thought that unit might have been a good fit for people without access to one [00:17]
mircea_popescu didn't the atms recently get shut down or is that a different country ? [00:17]

decimation do you have a relationship with those cavirtex guys? [00:19]
adam_obrien Ah - Quebec is on it's own. They operate by their own rules for some strange reason [00:19]
adam_obrien We are fully compliant with Fintrac (Canada's Fincen) and are operating under MSB license rules [00:19]
adam_obrien I don't. I have never liked cavirtex and haven't used them since there was other options [00:20]
adam_obrien I have to run here, if any of you need Bitcoin give me a ping [00:21]

mike_c i'm a fan, but that stock price! idk. [00:46]
thestringpuller funny what a little demand will do to the price of something [00:47]
danielpbarron so write something! [00:47]
mike_c what, write another article saying what the price should be? I already did that. [00:47]
thestringpuller write an article for qntra [00:48]
thestringpuller to acquire shares [00:48]
mike_c oh [00:48]
mike_c yeah, i have. [00:48]
mike_c but i was more thinking i should borrow shares from a founder and short it. [00:48]
danielpbarron oh, hah [00:48]
mike_c maybe a bitbet would be interesting. [00:48]
thestringpuller if you can return my shares to me I'd loan some :P [00:50]
mike_c I don't think we'd have the same quantity or timeframe in mind. [00:51]
thestringpuller :P [00:55]
thestringpuller mike_c: you realize there aren't enough shares to push down the bids right now? [00:56]
thestringpuller "This brings the total shares issued to 158`788" [00:57]
mike_c yeah, i know [00:57]
mike_c a lot can change in a year. but i don't think there are enough shares in existence to make it worth it anyway. i mean, what, bingo maybe has 50k shares? [00:57]

mike_c plus whatever they get for being authors [01:07]
mircea_popescu mike_c the 50% owner's chunk you can't acquire tho. [01:08]
mike_c ah, yeah. i'm not saying qntra is currently worth more than 45 btc. [01:09]

mike_c i'm saying the stock price is too high, not the market cap. [01:11]

mircea_popescu heh, let him say it @fb lol [01:13]
mircea_popescu anyway, i suspek jurov is perhaps in the best position to write you a short of some kind. [01:14]
thestringpuller mike_c: do you not see stock price as measurement of "value of eyeballs watching" [01:15]
mike_c i see the stock price right now as one of two things. [01:15]
mike_c nevermind, i don't even want to get into it. [01:15]
mircea_popescu i dun think 8k buys one anything like a qntra, tbh. [01:16]
mike_c or a qntra. [01:16]
mike_c obviously, since you can't buy the company for 8k. [01:16]
mircea_popescu well, in the sense apple coudl buy russia [01:16]
mike_c all you can buy is a few shares. at an inflated price. [01:16]
mike_c geezus, my fucking blood pressure today. [01:17]
mircea_popescu lol wait, this is anger inducing / [01:17]
mircea_popescu dun mind me then, i was merely conversin'. [01:17]
mike_c who knows. lots of straws on the camel back today. [01:17]
cazalla mircea_popescu is right on that ball park figure [01:18]
danielpbarron i thought it seemed high too, but i'm not in a rush to sell my 204 shares, so... [01:18]
mike_c in a lot of public companies the market cap is related to what you could acquire the whole company for. [01:18]
mircea_popescu i think you at least theoreitcally could make a buyout offer. [01:18]
mike_c this is more and less true for different companies, but generally it's the ballpark. [01:18]
mircea_popescu obviously, management doesn't HAVE TO sell. [01:19]
mike_c yeah, but, buyer would have to hire bingo & cazalla to keep running it [01:19]
mike_c and pay writers [01:19]
mircea_popescu conceivably they could run it as it runs now, which brings us to the point : [01:20]
mike_c it's like a very early stage startup, you really can't just buy the whole thing yet because the founders are so critical [01:20]
mircea_popescu there's really no logical reason to buy it unless you got a better way to run it [01:20]
mircea_popescu ie, control and ownership are really separate concerns. [01:20]
mircea_popescu mike_c you wouldn't need to hire them specifically, but you would need someone. and as there's very few people outside of b-a with brains working worth two shits... [01:21]
mike_c this is the whole point, right? people tried to make news sites and they sucked. [01:21]
mircea_popescu right. [01:21]
mircea_popescu kinda interesting discussion of value creation tbh. [01:21]
mike_c it's not like the domain is worth anything. so it is unbuyable, and the market cap is not related to its worth yet. [01:21]
decimation ;;isitdown [01:22]
gribble is down [01:22]
mike_c hehe [01:22]
mircea_popescu but your point seems self contradictory to me. on one hand, oh, this is irreplaceable, on the other, oh, this is not worth its market value [01:22]
mike_c sell! [01:22]

* assbot gives voice to adam_obrien [01:23]
decimation all else is speculation [01:23]
mike_c mircea_popescu: it's because you are thinking of what the company is worth, not a share. For many companies this is a simple calculation. not so for qntra. [01:23]
mike_c because dilution. for the next year, massive dilution. [01:24]
decimation mike_c: how would you evaluate the 'worth' of a company? ben graham? [01:24]
mike_c decimation: like so. [01:24]
* gernika has quit (Ping timeout: 245 seconds) [01:25]
decimation well, I would assume that the policy of share dilution would end at some point, and would not approach infinity [01:25]
mike_c it doesn't approach infinity [01:26]
mike_c dilution drops off as a matter of % [01:26]

thestringpuller mircea_popescu: so I was getting beer with Pierre_Rochard the other night, and got on the topic of off "blockchain solutions" in relation to derps wanting to buy coffee on blockchain. so eventually came to realization MPEx can do what Coinbase does but better. PUSH is free of charge, so in theory persons with MPEX accounts could make payment processing network with various bank thingies. they take derps money, put in mpex, and [01:31]
thestringpuller MPEx may one day allow redditards to buy coffee (and yes one day also pigs may fly) [01:32]

assbot [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 14957 @ 0.00035807 = 5.3557 BTC [-] [01:35]
asciilifeform danielpbarron: correct? << nononononono. 1) you want serial, not jtag 2) the jtag in my photo is wrong [01:35]
danielpbarron these are different things? [01:35]
* assbot removes voice from kyuupichan [01:36]
asciilifeform yes! [01:36]
asciilifeform entirely different [01:36]
danielpbarron i don't need jtag though, right? [01:36]
asciilifeform jtag is a protocol for directly reading/flipping bits in the cpu, eeprom, ram. [01:36]
asciilifeform it is very spiffy but you probably don't have the required machine to connect to it [01:36]
asciilifeform you want the serial. [01:37]
danielpbarron i should have something tuesday [01:37]
asciilifeform mircea_popescu: it doesn't NEED soldering, you can just glue it in contact, with conductive paste << Nnn-o. conductive glue is a -waste of time and money- unless you're making cheapo resistors [01:38]
decimation I bought my ttl-level serial/usb converter on ebay [01:38]
mircea_popescu ;;LATER TELL mike_c but logically a share can not be differently worth from mktcap/sharecount. [01:38]
gribble The operation succeeded. [01:38]
mircea_popescu this is like telling me that a dollar's not worth 1/100 of a hundred dollars. [01:38]
asciilifeform phriends don't let phriends conductive glue. it just sucks. [01:38]
asciilifeform (and if not today then tomorrow when room temp changes) [01:39]
mircea_popescu and for that matter... a) in fact qntra is set to have MUCH LESS dilution than absolutely ANY start-up. [01:39]
decimation the 'proper' solution would probably be to solder the 1mm pin headers you mention in your photos and then use a ribbon cable with pin-header plugs [01:39]
mircea_popescu the qntra dilution argument is similar to the bitcoin inflation argument, saying something like "bitcoin is set to inflate at a fixed rate, fiat currenciesa are not" [01:39]
asciilifeform mod6: thanks for posting a tarball << it contains a 12MB turd (mostly nulls) that can be booted to show that netbsd boots on pogo and diddles the network. that's all [01:39]
mircea_popescu this is true but misleading : in fact you know the fiats will inflate to all shit. and you know start-ups will dilute to all shit. in absolutely no proportion to "Words added" or any other sort of metric. [01:40]
mircea_popescu pity he left. [01:40]
decimation re: qntra > I guess my thinking is that he is using pretty speculative thinking about the rate of dilution, who knows how management is going to act in the future [01:40]
mircea_popescu thestringpuller this theory is in fact long standing practice, it's just that the derps filling up the www with their words don't know what they don't know [01:41]

mircea_popescu asciilifeform he's making a poc, for himself, as the first thing. he can solder later if he can't solder now [01:42]
asciilifeform mircea_popescu: if can't solder this, should ask a friend. it is a first class bitch to debug pogo w/out a serial console [01:42]
mircea_popescu glue omg! [01:42]
mircea_popescu you have never used glue ? [01:42]
asciilifeform have [01:42]
asciilifeform to my grief. [01:42]
mircea_popescu so then stop bitching lol [01:42]
asciilifeform good way to make a resistor randomly between 100k and 1Mohm [01:43]
decimation asciilifeform: are the pogo serial port 'holes' filled with solder? [01:43]
mircea_popescu for this application! not for treating his blepharospasm [01:43]
asciilifeform mircea_popescu: you actually used conductive flue and didn't regret ? where ? [01:43]
asciilifeform *glue [01:43]
mircea_popescu in one off sort of applications like this. [01:43]
asciilifeform decimation: they were on my unit [01:44]
asciilifeform anyway, whoever wants to prepare conductive glue can follow simple recipe, epoxy resin and aluminum powder. heavy on the latter. but don't say i didn't warn... [01:44]
decimation yeah soldering really isn't that hard, and this is good practice [01:45]

asciilifeform mircea_popescu: reference counting... [david moon tale] ...but sure, it'd be great if it worked << there are quite a few systems which used reference-counting in garbage collector (other than in the demented c++ and apple systems, it is generally used in a garbage collector to determine 'what's garbage?'.) appears in, e.g., wolfram's 'mathematica.' down side: cannot have circular data structures. [02:10]
asciilifeform well, not merely circular, but self-referential in any form [02:11]
asciilifeform they will not get collected - ever. [02:11]

asciilifeform the 'secret' is that *no one* is making quality hardware. but apple is the most egregious sc4mz0r, for continuing to maintain the pretense. [02:32]

mircea_popescu i can follow that logic there. "for ten cents we can't be bothered, write your own damned card" [02:47]
asciilifeform mircea_popescu: beg to differ. there are very good algos for garbage collection with hard real-time guarantees. they are complicated and i know of no system other than common lisp where they are implemented with any quality. [02:47]
mircea_popescu so there you go. [02:47]

asciilifeform to anyone who gives half a fuck [02:49]
asciilifeform in fact, i dare say it is the only good work on the subject in dead tree. [02:50]
asciilifeform but yes, garbage collection will have a terrible reputation for at least another half century on account of the state-of-the-art half a century ago when john mccarthy invented it, 'stop the world' [02:50]
asciilifeform literally, like keeping two flats, occasionally taking useful objects from one to the other, then setting off dynamite in the old flat. [02:51]

mircea_popescu inflation economy is basically the cheapest most reliable implementation of "crabs in the pot" to human society. [15:42]
mircea_popescu nothing ever gets done anymore because everyone's energy is spent dragging everyone else down. [15:42]

assbot Douglass' Narrative ... ( ) [15:48]
mircea_popescu he sounds exactly like a better read joseph smith. substantially the same inclination to pass counterfactuality for fact "because who's to say it didn't happen" and "it damned well serves the purpose of making my understanding of the world more palatable ot others". [15:49]
mircea_popescu kinda lends a lot of substance to a notion that usians are actually broken in the head structurally, rather than accidentally. at least the usians of the time. [15:49]
ben_vulpes douglass was a fraud? [15:50]
asciilifeform mircea_popescu: not only were the colonies (and then usa) the world's premier nuthouse for sectarian nutters, but the era of 'we have empty space now' promoted the 'tell'em tall tales and who's to say it didn't happen out there in the woods' mentality [15:51]
mircea_popescu i never read anything important he wrote. he did a lot of abolitionist propaganda, for which his party attached titles to him. [15:51]
mircea_popescu this makes him no more a philosopher than the soviets. [15:51]
mircea_popescu asciilifeform apparently. it's kind-of strange that this shared psychosis was never investigated. [15:52]
mircea_popescu then people jump at the fundamentally antiscientific restructuring of science the americans did (and many places copied) after 1950 as a sort of noivel phenomena [15:52]
mircea_popescu fucking bs, there's nothing novel about it, they just did to science what they had been doing all through 1800s. which apparently is, for unclear reasons, all the ycan intellectually do ?! [15:52]
asciilifeform mircea_popescu: marc twain did a pretty good job investigating [15:53]
mircea_popescu asciilifeform and you obviously notice that after the "god spoke to me through stones in hat" west of the early 1800 and the "god spoke to me re black people" of the mid 1800s, they moved on to "god spoke to me re rhodesia" almost seamlessly. and before that it was... [15:54]

mircea_popescu "Articulate" has a certain meaning, look in the dictionary; it is fairly consistent throughout all settings except one: when it is used by a white guy to describe a black guy.

mats hm, i learned today you can prepend your prompt with a ':' and have a ';' at the end, it will ignore whats in between so you can just copy and paste lines right from your terminal [23:40]
danielpbarron nubbins`, did you ever get that to work? [23:41]
nubbins` danielpbarron yeah, it's serving up files via smb right now [23:41]
danielpbarron oh.. but not bitcoind ? [23:41]
nubbins` no, actually useful enough around the house that i'll need to get a second one for tinkering [23:41]
nubbins` :/ [23:41]
danielpbarron bitcoind: /usr/lib/arm-linux-gnueabi/ version `GLIBCXX_3.4.20' not found (required by bitcoind) [23:42]

nubbins` is the pitfall incomplete search results? [23:45]
nubbins` o, wait. there we go. [23:45]
mod6 this was never actually posted publically yet. there is some very strange bjam error that doesn't allow the bash script to continue automatically. if one runs it, then you'll have to comment out the build lines for openssl, bdb, and boost and re-run. [23:45]
mod6 I can post it if you wanna use it though. the hope was to have a fixed one here by sometime next week. [23:46]
asciilifeform post plz [23:46]

mod6 sorry, damn hotel wireless keeps dropping me like every 90 seconds. [23:48]
danielpbarron so is it possible that i need to recompile my bitcoind, and this debian install is just fine? and for some reason ArchLinux doesn't mind? [23:48]
asciilifeform is it connecting preferentially to nodes in afghanistan, ip over dead goat ? [23:48]

BingoBoingo asciilifeform: I honestly and humbly lack the faculties of knowledge necessary to determine such [23:49]
asciilifeform hmm [23:49]
asciilifeform BingoBoingo: have you tried restricting it to one known-good node on the lan to sync from ? [23:49]
mircea_popescu decimation: Bill Nye identifies 'regular software writers' << afaik this view was never controversial. i was kinda surprised to see people react to my ocasional statement to the effect with total shock. [23:50]
BingoBoingo asciilifeform: Nope, syncing "in the wild" to make sure it can. Looking like it will be a sub 2 week sync time so happy with that [23:50]
asciilifeform BingoBoingo et al: the way i'm thinking now, the 'sync from one node at a time' thing will have to be killed with fire before 0.5.3/pogo (or otherwise) is given to civilians [23:50]
asciilifeform just like the memory leak [23:50]
BingoBoingo asciilifeform: Seems so [23:50]
asciilifeform because having it there - it is just unforgivable idiocy [23:50]
mircea_popescu myeah [23:51]
mod6 the static build script seems to exit after line 53 for some reason, haven't had time to debug. if one should figure out a workaround/fix/patch for that, that'd be much appreciated. otherwise I can fix myself when I'm back. [23:51]
mircea_popescu problem is... not that straughtforward fix [23:51]
asciilifeform aha, requires sewing not only ripping [23:51]
asciilifeform ripping - easy [23:51]
mod6 be advised that lines 4, 6 & 8 of that script need to be tuned to your local environment! [23:52]
mod6 :] [23:52]
asciilifeform bad enough that i'm apparently chasing a low-level bit diddling bug in a sata driver for a godforsaken chip on a godforsaken os [23:52]
asciilifeform how did i fall into such a life. [23:52]
asciilifeform and would any of you care to do this instead [23:52]
mircea_popescu man with young children. "how did i fall into such a life!" [23:53]

mod6 anyway, the foundation will publish a polished script sometime during the first few weeks of march. [23:54]
nubbins` blue "mobile", no lid. ebay. [23:55]

asciilifeform nubbins`: sata-less [23:56]
nubbins` nod [23:56]
nubbins` right, someone mentioned the exercise in patience i have awaiting me [23:56]
nubbins` ~$35usd for sata-ful [23:57]
asciilifeform nubbins`: can't order from usian 'amazon' ? [23:57]
mod6 for the vi-impared, if you run the script as-is, and you hit that weird issue as I did, simply start up vi and run this [23:57]
mod6 :35,53 s/^/#/ [23:57]
asciilifeform or killer postage cost [23:57]
nubbins` well, no, maybe the same [23:57]
mod6 then :wq and re-run the script [23:57]
nubbins` asciilifeform most electronic items simply do not offer a checkout button for canadians [23:57]
danielpbarron what is shipping from US to CA? [23:57]
nubbins` danielpbarron insanely cheap for everything but electronics. [23:57]
asciilifeform i've never had problems getting items from ca [23:58]
nubbins` phun phact, we order most of our paper from brooklyn [23:58]
danielpbarron how would they know? [23:58]
danielpbarron i mean from me to you [23:58]
nubbins` how would the shippers know? [23:58]
nubbins` o. [23:58]
nubbins` the customs form, i guess [23:58]
nubbins` i don't think there's any special duty or anything, just american electronics websites usually charge limbs to .ca [23:58]
nubbins` you mailing me ten packaged pogos would raise eyebrows at customs [23:59]
danielpbarron eh, unless you're getting more than one it's probably not worth it anyway for just 15 bucks [23:59]
nubbins` yeah [23:59]
mircea_popescu so i'm banning both clam shitcoin and cryptsy from bitbet. anyone want to argue either ? [23:59]
mod6 last note: this is all predicated on the fact that one would have run the v0.0.8 perl script to patch the R.I. So you might need to alter line 62 to point to the correct bitcoin build directory. [23:59]
