mod6 ok i see what my hangup is. [00:08]
mod6 so when i use Mr. P.'s pat: [00:09]
assbot ... ( ) [00:09]
mod6 it pretty much applies the same, and if then I do a vdiff of a/bitcoin/src/key.h to b/bitcoin/src/key.h (where Mr. P.'s patch was applied in b/.../) then the diff looks the same. [00:10]
mod6 only problem here is, it adds in spaces instead of tabs [00:10]
mod6 so then if I go line by line adding tabs instead of the spaces, i get a bit of a different vdiff output as such: [00:10]
mircea_popescu mod6 really you shouldn't do this manually, just s/ / / [00:11]
jurov mod6 and why not "failed at" #__LINE__ "in" #__FILE__ [00:12]

assbot ... ( ) [00:14]
mod6 <+jurov> mod6 and why not "failed at" #__LINE__ "in" #__FILE__ << sounds good to me, can you give me a full example so I don't screw this up, ive never used tat before. [00:14]
mod6 <+mircea_popescu> mod6 really you shouldn't do this manually, just s/ / / << lemme try with this. thx. [00:15]
* toffoo has quit () [00:15]
jurov the example i gave is pretty much complete. and you ought to experiment with it [00:15]
jurov maybe __FILE__ gives full path, i don't remember, then it's not very desirable [00:15]
mircea_popescu it's just compiler directivation. [00:16]
mircea_popescu well, preprocessor technically. [00:16]
mircea_popescu simply gets replaced wit hthe right numbers pre compile time [00:16]
jurov but __LINE__ should be used in any case, and # causes it to be treated as string [00:16]
mod6 hmm. same thing. [00:20]
mod6 oh boy this is obnoxious. [00:20]
mod6 maybe i need to go line by line and do it all by hand. [00:21]
jurov if you go ahead with tabs, do you want lxr to ignore whitespace changes in diffs? [00:23]
mod6 <+jurov> the example i gave is pretty much complete. and you ought to experiment with it << would this work? : printf("ERROR, ECDSA_sign failed at #__LINE__ in #__FILE__
jurov for me it was amusing to see the amount of bile spent on that [00:24]
jurov mod6 yes that should work [00:24]
mod6 ima leave that out for now. [00:24]
jurov mod6 ^ that was answer to my lxr q? [00:25]
mod6 ah, now. im gonna leave the #__LINE__ #__FILE__ thing out. [00:26]
mod6 *no [00:26]
mod6 *sigh* [00:26]
mod6 i gotta figure out how to get this patch exactly correct. can't seem to do it. [00:27]
jurov what are you doing? [00:27]
jurov if your're applying s/ / / straight to the diff, that won't work, the format does require space after + or - [00:28]
mod6 no not straight to the diff. [00:29]
mod6 post application [00:29]
mod6 basically, im trying to get my +/- to look like mr. p.'s. but i can't seem to achieve that. [00:30]
mod6 after i apply his patch, there are no tabs, only spaces. [00:30]
mod6 and when I replace :293,331 s/ / / it basically ends up looking like this: [00:31]
mod6 [00:31]
assbot ... ( ) [00:31]
mod6 who knew that creating the patch would be harder than the code itself. [00:31]
* jixei_ has quit (Ping timeout: 250 seconds) [00:31]
jurov yes this is the wrong approach, you ended up with + there [00:33]
jurov why can't you replace with tabs *before* running diff? [00:34]
mod6 huh, dunno, guess i could try that. [00:35]
jurov also, looks like you replaced only first " " in line anyway [00:35]
jurov s/ / /g replaces all occurences but best solution is to set vim (or any editor) to use only tabs [00:36]
jurov and then :retab [00:36]
jurov (or whatever equivalent your editor does) [00:36]
asciilifeform ftr i think the whitespace thing is lunacy [00:37]
asciilifeform USE MOTHERFUCKING EMACS [00:37]
asciilifeform i don't need 200kB diffs. [00:37]
mod6 <+mod6> huh, dunno, guess i could try that. << failed to patch [00:37]
asciilifeform for anything. [00:37]
asciilifeform if somebody wants to mechanically retab the genesis and regen ALL OF THE VPATCHES - go ahead [00:38]
asciilifeform but this is an astonishing waste of time imho [00:38]
asciilifeform while rome burns. [00:39]
jurov meh, i'm like... let them have their whitespace/style holy wars, they'll learn someday [00:39]
jurov if mod6 learns to set up his editor to emit consistent kind of whitespace, then today was not wasted [00:40]

mircea_popescu after i apply his patch, there are no tabs, only spaces. << i made a tab'd one, then asciilifeform wanted a different one so i made that too. which are you looking at ? [00:55]
mod6 This one here: [00:56]

mircea_popescu that's the 2nd one ? [00:56]

ben_vulpes aha, ms. smith made the log finally! [01:00]
* ben_vulpes waves to yves [01:00]
mod6 i did a `wget -O mp.first.diff` and the tabs in the + side seem to be preserved. [01:00]
assbot ... ( ) [01:00]
mod6 but I didn't apply that one, just the second. [01:00]
mod6 lemme see on that one. [01:00]
mod6 yah, second one has no tabs at all. [01:02]
mircea_popescu heh. so i try to use inept merchant. inept merchant doesn't take bitcoin, but takes a variety of bullshit "payment processors", one of which "payza". i go whatever, they pop up a 0.04blabla btc, which i pay. turns out THEY WON'T PROCESS the payment they advertised until you "verify", ie click on some link in email. so i do. turns out they still won't process the payment they advertised, untill you... fill a form. so i [01:02]
mircea_popescu fill a form. turns out they... STILL won't process the payment they advertised, unti... you upload "documents". and they'll send your bitcoin back, of course. ALSO after you upload "documents". [01:02]
ben_vulpes heh clever [01:02]
mircea_popescu consequently, ikf anyone wants a payza account with 16 bux in it, it's, gangbangA1, and 12345678 "pin" w/e the shit that is. [01:03]

mircea_popescu ben_vulpes yeah, totally so very clever they'll spend thousands of dollars to dig themselves out of this pr hole and wonder why it dun work. [01:03]

ben_vulpes goals being low tco, ease of finding parts and cost of maintenance hours. [01:07]

assbot Logged on 21-01-2016 13:39:24; asciilifeform: idiocy is ~contagious~ [01:10]
asciilifeform it is [01:10]
mircea_popescu ... [01:10]
mircea_popescu so which is it ? [01:11]
asciilifeform [01:11]
assbot Logged on 21-01-2016 13:39:59; asciilifeform: i'd happily see the whole shebang reformatted, but this would destroy v-ability [01:11]
mircea_popescu how would it do that ? [01:11]
asciilifeform by having 600KB of crud to read! [01:11]
ben_vulpes << aye, to the extent that i 'learned cpp', and to the extent that i can even be said to 'know' any other programming language. [01:11]
assbot Logged on 22-01-2016 00:51:59; asciilifeform: somebody here (ben_vulpes?) even learned cpp just for the occasion. [01:11]
asciilifeform because it touches every line ? [01:12]
mircea_popescu you don't have to read anything. apparently you don't even read the log lines! [01:12]
mircea_popescu [01:12]
assbot Logged on 21-01-2016 14:40:51; mircea_popescu: that once the current version being worked upon is released, we all do a whole-source scouring of spaces, and sign the independently generated results, which will be an immediate, other patch. [01:12]
mircea_popescu it's absolutely machine-verifiable, you also get some people's signatures, what's the problem. [01:12]
asciilifeform so genesis-2 ? [01:12]
ben_vulpes 'scouring of spaces' means the tab-replacement? [01:12]
mircea_popescu myea [01:13]
asciilifeform why not also get rid of the idiot { on own line thing then. [01:13]

mircea_popescu stop moving the fucking discussion omfg. [01:13]
asciilifeform hey the tabs thing only matters because mircea_popescu insists on programming in 'nano' [01:13]
mircea_popescu you just said [01:13]
mircea_popescu o god. [01:13]
mircea_popescu i dun have the energy to chase this. whatevs. [01:14]
asciilifeform hey if the man wants to program in 'nano' who am i to say. [01:14]
asciilifeform i can only take off my hat... [01:14]
asciilifeform anyway, who wants to regenesis, go. [01:14]
mircea_popescu barrier to coding should properly be "is willing to :retab back and forth forever because idiocy is contagious and we gotta argue all sides of any point". [01:14]
asciilifeform i'll sign. [01:14]
ben_vulpes 'regenesis' << actually start over?! [01:15]
asciilifeform ben_vulpes: nah, see above [01:15]
mircea_popescu asciilifeform one day your "idiocy is contagious and fixing it a collosal waste of time and i've changed my mind and wah wah" thing'll land you in the soup. [01:15]
asciilifeform mircea_popescu: you did not understand what i meant when said 'contagious' [01:16]
mircea_popescu apparently. [01:16]
asciilifeform specifically that i saw leaving the formatting alone as a forced thing. [01:16]
mircea_popescu is the formatting as is idiocy or is it not idiocy. [01:17]
asciilifeform sure is [01:17]
asciilifeform but it ranked dead last on my list of what must be fixed. [01:18]
mircea_popescu then i fail to understand what objection you have. [01:18]
mircea_popescu this is not what you said, neither at the first juncture, nor at the 2nd juncture. [01:18]
ben_vulpes << this is my fault and i am terribly sorry [01:18]

asciilifeform mircea_popescu: my objection was to the notion of reading 600kB patches of spaces-to-tabs-every-line [01:18]
BingoBoingo Sounds like other arm could use papercut too, but cranked up to 11 [01:19]
asciilifeform but if you want to auto-munge the whole thing, why not [01:19]

ben_vulpes i set you on the btcd snipe hunt aeons ago iirc [01:20]
mod6 so this is what i'm gonna do [01:20]
mod6 im gonna add the code to key.h by hand. [01:20]

mircea_popescu my one question, and not to mod6 in particular, is : can unsigned int nSize = ECDSA_size(pkey); be trusted to not fuck up the size ? [09:43]
mircea_popescu and also, since we're taking out memcpy(&vchSig[0], pchSig, nSize); in favour of, from what i understand, unsigned char *pos = &vchSig[0]; are these actually and in fact equivalent ? [09:45]
mircea_popescu especially after hanging out here i trust c++ about as much as php with these sorts of things [09:45]
mircea_popescu the wisdom seems to be that "don't fucking memcpy by hand, the compiler inlines (or even register-moves) most assignments itself and unlike you it fucking knows when to do it", but hey. [09:50]
mircea_popescu i can't help myself but suspect there may have been a good reason for the weird, even given the immense piles of pointless insanity scattered throughout the code. [09:50]

mircea_popescu da fuck is this. [12:51]

thestringpuller AdrianG: ^-obligatory [13:37]
mircea_popescu like every fashion-driven scam, gotta keep ahead of the wavefront, not sit behind. [13:37]
AdrianG i remember at the peak of btc 2013 heights, litecoin was something around 11% of the btc marketcap [13:37]
thestringpuller mircea_popescu: guess that's how TaT made bank on the ASICMINER scam. [13:37]
AdrianG some spillover is inevitable [13:37]
mircea_popescu heh, the usg can't afford to throw away half a bil just for this. [13:38]
mircea_popescu some spillover, sure. [13:38]
thestringpuller AdrianG: if you are trying to extract fiat profits from Bitcoin, you've got some learnin' to do. [13:38]
AdrianG thestringpuller: as for bitcoin not doing what investors expect, ethereum can be shoehorned into their needs much more easily [13:38]
mircea_popescu certainly. [13:38]
thestringpuller AdrianG: and this is good thing because? [13:38]
mircea_popescu the only problem with their "needs" is that their needs are a certain path to their own doom. [13:38]
AdrianG thestringpuller: good is subjective. its just a perception. [13:39]
thestringpuller AdrianG: there is sanity and insanity. You don't try to run a business with insanit expecting it to function. [13:39]
thestringpuller Most Bitcoin VC cirus shows are like watching a very long episode of the Profit without Marcus Lemonis. [13:40]
AdrianG why is using something like ethereum insanity? [13:40]
thestringpuller because Buterin has a big head. [13:40]
mircea_popescu what's your idea of "using" ? [13:40]
AdrianG thestringpuller: he's just very skinny [13:40]
thestringpuller They said that about Dib from Invader Zim and he obviously didn't amount to much. [13:41]
thestringpuller Just the insane musings of a derp with too big of a head. [13:41]
AdrianG mircea_popescu: i think a programmable ledger has legitimate uses. unfortunately for ethereum holders, those ledgers are going to be private and inaccessible from outside. [13:41]
mircea_popescu i have no idea why you think this is a use. [13:42]
AdrianG that it has uses? [13:42]
mircea_popescu the comet W52C2 also "has legitimate uses". [13:42]
mircea_popescu who's using it ? [13:42]
AdrianG banks are drowning in legacy code. anything that helps them to move away from it is useful. [13:42]
assbot [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 19100 @ 0.00056679 = 10.8257 BTC [+] [13:42]
mircea_popescu this is a very naive view. [13:42]
AdrianG even as just an experiment, really. [13:42]
mircea_popescu an unhappily married woman is drowning in sorrow [13:42]
mircea_popescu any cock rubbing on her is useful ? [13:42]
mircea_popescu what are we, 15 ? [13:43]
mircea_popescu malformed, dysfunctional, self-contradictory, defeated propositions aren't better than the currently chosen broken one. the broken one hasn't been chosen on technical merit. [13:43]
AdrianG what makes you so certain it has no uses whatsoever? [13:44]
mircea_popescu this is exactly why all the "oh, bitcoin needs x" "oh, bitcoin must or else Y will" bla bla is meaningless. [13:44]
AdrianG thats a very broad view [13:44]
mircea_popescu i like broads. [13:44]
thestringpuller AdrianG: you're failing to realize how terminal the system is right now. [13:45]
AdrianG thestringpuller: i never argued against that. [13:45]
mircea_popescu take your window, on the presumption that you are currently located in a room with one. this window of yours COULD be used as a door, to a larger degree than ethereum could be used to anything. [13:45]
mircea_popescu neveretheless... have you used it as a door ? will you ? [13:45]
thestringpuller AdrianG: Yes but you are arguing for trying to teach a sickly man to learn how to dunk a basketball. [13:46]
AdrianG why do you guys only speak in strawmen? [13:46]
mircea_popescu o.O [13:46]
thestringpuller Just because with cybernetics "he could" but should he? [13:46]
mircea_popescu illustrate this! [13:46]
* assbot removes voice from terminal [13:46]
AdrianG cryptographically signed txn ledger will simplify parts of audits [13:46]
mircea_popescu o noes they terminated terminal! YOU BASTIDS [13:47]
mircea_popescu AdrianG how does this make the window a strawman ? [13:47]
AdrianG they can just basically automate a lot of regulatory compliance and cut out humans [13:47]
mircea_popescu of course, the other way to automate regulatory bs is to ignore it until it goes away. [13:47]
thestringpuller ^-this [13:47]
mircea_popescu seems much cheaper. [13:47]
PeterL cryptographically signed txn ledger will simplify parts of audits << why do they need etherum for this? just sign bits of the normal ledger as they are made, why do you need to involve cryptocurrency? [13:48]
AdrianG PeterL: it would have nothing to do with cryptocurrency ofc. [13:48]
AdrianG ethereum as a cryptocurrency itself is probably useless. [13:48]
thestringpuller PeterL: better yet [13:49]
* saulimus ( has joined #bitcoin-assets [13:49]
AdrianG PeterL: it would be just a private instance, or a federated peg at best. [13:50]
mircea_popescu o.O [13:50]
mircea_popescu so... [13:50]
AdrianG and signing the normal ledger, is just a small part, programmability gives you a lot more flexibility to code business logic in. [13:50]
thestringpuller AdrianG: how does this not differ from: "it works by ben_vulpes, sultan of brunei, and king of saud, sending each other pgpgrams with signed chits of how many tonnes of plutonium each owes the other." [13:51]
thestringpuller Buterin's view of how a contract works is highly skewed. [13:51]
AdrianG thestringpuller: it differs in that an implementation already exists. [13:51]
thestringpuller except ethereum assumes all individuals in a contract act as machines. Better yet why not make them all machines! [13:52]
mircea_popescu AdrianG implementation is not per se valuable, for the sad reason that it is much cheaper to write code than to read it. [13:52]
AdrianG mircea_popescu: people tend to re-use existing stuff. [13:52]
mircea_popescu anyone in business will prefer to write de novo rather than audit the dubious code of the crowd of idiot kids gathered around that buteriun dude. [13:53]
mircea_popescu NOBODY reuses anything. this has not happened yet. [13:53]
mircea_popescu it's a delusion, born fundamentally out of a lack of business experience. [13:53]
AdrianG banks' software depends on thousands of libraries written by random hobos [13:53]
AdrianG it wouldnt be anything new [13:53]
mircea_popescu i guess by this argument we shall invest in hobos. [13:54]
thestringpuller AdrianG: actually it's mostly a lot of java/vb code written by indian d00ds. [13:54]
mircea_popescu thestringpuller he's technically correct, they just stole it and delivered it, but anyway. [13:54]
thestringpuller aha [13:55]
thestringpuller i've invested in hobos. not really an investment as much as charity. [13:55]
thestringpuller it's also better to pay them in 40s than actual money [13:55]
AdrianG thestringpuller: sure, random indian d00ds [13:56]
AdrianG its not qualitatively different from code written by random hobos [13:57]

thestringpuller terminal2: ASICMINER actually delivered on their IPO, their stock skyrocketed. However due to insane management that seems to be very common in the mining world, the company imploded. [14:25]
mod6 And 'you' in the sense of all of us. Not just Mr. P. [14:25]
mircea_popescu mod6 kinda what my thinking is. [14:26]
mod6 I think it's vital that we all gain a good grasp of what the intricacies are in this code - myself included. [14:26]
thestringpuller d00d. once you hit block 280k it chugs so slow. [14:26]
-AdrianG- my voice expired [14:26]
mod6 ya it happens. [14:27]
thestringpuller 100k blocks to go ~_~ eta like 1 more week [14:27]
thestringpuller and this is a decent PC. [14:27]
* drnet ( has joined #bitcoin-assets [14:27]
mircea_popescu mod6 the thing is, that 10`000 we took out - while very sensible to be out and belongs out - could very well had been covering up for say an openssl bug. [14:27]
mircea_popescu like it or not this is the level of scrutiny that patches have to face, even if it makes develoipment slow. [14:28]
thestringpuller well openssl will eventually need to be excised as well, what to replace it with, I don't know. [14:28]
mircea_popescu while cutting out crud we could get away with less poring, but as we add / change / etc it becomes ever more problematic. [14:28]
thestringpuller mircea_popescu: wouldn't unit testing coverage prevent some of this from becoming a problem? [14:29]
ascii_butugychag no. [14:30]
mircea_popescu it will catch all the bugs it catches [14:30]

trinque thestringpuller: yep, though not one I've passed any judgement on yet, other than "is elsewhere" [15:27]
ascii_butugychag the observation about 'girl is not annoying because it is a girl' is spot-on [15:27]

ascii_butugychag mircea_popescu: the observation about 'camgurlz are a magnet for the attention of subhuman bois' seems unsurprising [15:39]
mircea_popescu they drive otherwise "normal" boys into subhumanity. [15:39]
ascii_butugychag ... isn't that sorta like 'toilet is a magnet for shit' ? yes, sometimes people plant flowers in one. but speaking as to its purpose. [15:39]
ascii_butugychag srsly? [15:39]
mircea_popescu this isn't a castigation of them. but the system is a chute down not a chute up. [15:39]
ascii_butugychag how does that work ? [15:40]
mircea_popescu let's see. suppose a land, fertile but unimproved. to get anything, you have to actually get it. [15:40]
mircea_popescu we know this does promote all the industries - people will hunt and make farms, and then need lumber and tv sets. [15:41]
mircea_popescu suppose now a desert with small pellet dispensers, where a little food can be had. [15:41]
mircea_popescu we know this promotes all the africas - people will sit around and invent ways to insure they don't upset the gods. [15:41]
ascii_butugychag ensure? [15:41]
mircea_popescu myeah [15:42]
mircea_popescu both, really, but myeah. [15:42]
ascii_butugychag and farmers do their share of 'must not upset the gods' [15:42]
mircea_popescu there is necessarily no ensuring "the gods". just you know, transactional insuring 'em. [15:42]
ascii_butugychag because land doesn't actually behave so differently from a food dispenser [15:42]
mircea_popescu granted. [15:42]
mircea_popescu yet the effects of tiny modulation in environment are indisputably major in the mold that grows out [15:43]
* terminal2 has quit (Ping timeout: 252 seconds) [15:43]
ascii_butugychag i'd conjecture that 'africanization' is at its height when the 'food dispenser' ~responds to human buluceala' [15:44]
ascii_butugychag ~ [15:44]
mircea_popescu and here it does. [15:44]
ascii_butugychag (it isn't about whether the pellets are small, as in a zoo, or large, as in a harvest season - but that zoo ~answeres prayers~ and rewards wheedling) [15:45]
mircea_popescu the size of the pellet is imo the important part. [15:45]
ascii_butugychag how so ? [15:45]
mircea_popescu consider. the first major invention that "revolutionized" mankind was... agriculture. it reduced the societal bolus from "whole bison, if you get it" to "a fraction of a crop, if you well save it". [15:46]
mircea_popescu this reduction similarly took the world from greece to rome, give or take. [15:46]

mircea_popescu or if you prefer, from sioux to irish. [15:47]
mircea_popescu the next one, actual industry, reduced the bolus further (the chinese never developed industry because yes, their goverment had already reduced it to "one bowl of rice") [15:47]
mircea_popescu degradation of society generally follows the success of technology in reducing the size of the minimal harvest. [15:48]
mircea_popescu which is why we're to expect all sorts of wonders from micropayments ; all of which wonders begin and end with caged ratpeople. [15:48]
ascii_butugychag small pellet leads to thinking of next pellet always. as in the professor who described to me how crack is smoked [15:49]
ascii_butugychag this makes sense. [15:49]
mircea_popescu more importantly, small pellet makes it LESS important to live. [15:49]
mircea_popescu the hunter didn't fear death ; the farmer feared death only, not drudgery ; the factory worker can't even think death, fears drudgery, not anonymity. [15:51]
mircea_popescu then finally the "literate" or "white collar" or however you call the despicable postmodern otaku, intellectuals I suppose ? can't even comprehend drudgery, fears anonimity, i can scarcely look down to see what's next. [15:52]
ascii_butugychag whaddayamean can't comprehend drudgery [15:52]
mircea_popescu just that. [15:52]
ascii_butugychag we got drudgery on tap [15:52]
ascii_butugychag in every godforsaken cube farm tower [15:53]
mircea_popescu anyone bothered by it ? [15:53]
mircea_popescu anyone even seem to notice ? [15:53]
ascii_butugychag everybody? [15:53]
mircea_popescu ha-ha. [15:53]
ascii_butugychag why do you suppose just about all of these people kill themselves ? [15:53]
ascii_butugychag (usually slowly, with drink etc. but.) [15:53]
mircea_popescu i would not presume these people do anything. [15:53]
mircea_popescu as the expression goes, "it happened" [15:54]
mircea_popescu why does it happen to them that they died ? no one knows, for drudgery can't be thought. [15:54]
ascii_butugychag i can readily observe at least a subset of things they choose to do, when i find myself readily able to avoid doing them [15:54]
ascii_butugychag ergo they choose to? [15:54]
mircea_popescu im not so sure. [15:54]
ascii_butugychag for instance, drinking yourself into catatonia every friday is optional [15:55]
mircea_popescu to quote, " Who needs reasons when you've got heroin?" [15:55]
mircea_popescu what's your model for optionality ? [15:55]
mircea_popescu for me and for the waitress, showing up at the restaurant is optional, right ? and so it is for the cat. [15:56]
ascii_butugychag for eater - optional [15:56]
ascii_butugychag for waitress and cat - perhaps less so ? [15:56]
mircea_popescu well, you'll need a model. [15:56]
mircea_popescu maybe for cat most of all. how about the beef ? [15:57]
ascii_butugychag the beef is not a playing character... [15:57]
mircea_popescu but the waitress is ? [15:57]
mircea_popescu why, cuz you never fucked a cow ? [15:57]
ascii_butugychag is, if only residually [15:57]
ascii_butugychag i must admit this glaring omission. i have not. [15:57]
mircea_popescu how about a waitress ? [15:58]
ascii_butugychag approxim. [15:58]
mircea_popescu well then, that explains it :D [15:58]
ascii_butugychag but i find a good bit of what these people do to themselves to be readily optional, at least in the sense that eating one's nagant is optional [16:01]
mircea_popescu "the beef is not a playing character for not having escaped from its pen ; the waitress is a playing character for not having escaped from its pen." << shall need some more sandbags. why hate the cow, what, if you prick it does it not bleed ? [16:01]
mircea_popescu if you poison it, does it not die ? [16:01]
ascii_butugychag i've never seen a human woman land by mistake in a cow pen and end up processed for beef [16:01]
ascii_butugychag while i have seen thinking people end up waiting tables etc [16:02]

pete_dushenski ;;later tell ben_vulpes i'd avoid all chrysler products (including jeep) like the plague. land cruiser/4runner, tahoe/suburban, and explorer/expedition are all worth considering and all fit the "mega-suv with low tco and reasonable maintenance prospects for an american family" niche. that being said, you'd probably be just as well, if not better, served by the 00-06 escape or 97-02 cr-v, both of which should be quiet [18:28]
pete_dushenski easier to park, better on fuel, and have lower tco. whichever way you go, driving them each and finding a used car with known providence (receipts!) are the two most important factors. [18:28]
gribble The operation succeeded. [18:28]
pete_dushenski for those at home, tco = true cost to own [18:28]

pete_dushenski magnum r/t for sure. probably less than $10k for a decent one. [18:34]
pete_dushenski chrysler has definitely taken the crown of "piece of cobbled together shit that only lasts as long as you're making payments on it", which fiat had through the 80s. fitting that fiat came back to north america in 2012 under chrysler proprietorship, really. [18:36]

gabriel_laddel Does anyone have experience with North Star Micro Electronics? [18:58]

polarbeard neat [20:52]
mircea_popescu so why would we find this horrible ? [20:52]
polarbeard because you built v in first place [20:53]
mircea_popescu well yes but for this reason afaiu. [20:53]
polarbeard yep, this is quite experimental anyway, I don't know make's limits [20:54]

asciilifeform polarbeard: what do the 'hunks' do ? [20:55]
mircea_popescu "make has a 100000 targets limit written into the code" [20:55]
polarbeard after verifying, patches are split into hunks [20:55]
polarbeard so make can resolve them [20:55]
mircea_popescu uh [20:55]
asciilifeform why? [20:55]
mircea_popescu look at that, it's like we're back to .rar torrents. [20:56]
polarbeard why split or why make has to resolve them? [20:56]
asciilifeform why the latter [20:57]
asciilifeform v is guaranteed to apply all vpatches in the correct order. [20:57]
polarbeard there is no v [20:58]
mircea_popescu << the definition of "effective" under which he operates is both peculiar and self-defeating. he wants to get something (in this case, anything, whatsoever) for nothing (in this case, no casualties, the one thing usg can't afford is coffins). so in that sense, his insanity is sensible. [20:58]
assbot Logged on 22-01-2016 23:07:35; pete_dushenski: when your ~most effective~ weapon costs you more to build, maintain, and operate than it causes in damage to your enemies, you're deeply defeated. [20:58]
mircea_popescu asciilifeform he wrote a makefile maker [20:58]
polarbeard it helps with parallelization but there was another reason I forgot [20:58]
asciilifeform mircea_popescu: i can see this [20:58]
mircea_popescu so technically it doesn't need the v once the output has been generated. [20:58]
asciilifeform i actually considered implementing v this way, and decided against it [20:58]
mircea_popescu yes but all possibility space WILL be explored. [20:59]
asciilifeform you lose a good bit of important side functionality, and become dependent on a gigantic gnuturd [20:59]
asciilifeform (it is bad enough that we rely on gnu diff) [20:59]
mircea_popescu well, he wants to find out if he can crash make. [20:59]
polarbeard true, it's just an experiment [20:59]
polarbeard you get a signable build process though [20:59]
polarbeard mircea_popescu: right :) [20:59]
asciilifeform signable? [20:59]
mircea_popescu asciilifeform yes, as per github tradition. if you trust your computer and v implementation, you can sign the output. [21:00]
asciilifeform i suppose if a megatonne of hardcoded hashes can be called 'build process'... [21:00]
mircea_popescu how do you thinkg everything else that's signed out there is signed ? [21:00]
mircea_popescu and rly i should say "As per git tradition" [21:00]
mircea_popescu debian was never anything else, etc. [21:01]
asciilifeform i'm still not certain why the patches had to be broken down into patchons [21:01]
polarbeard its just intermediary state though [21:01]

asciilifeform let's say i want to press to the latest [21:05]
polarbeard you probably need to specify some paths, wot, patches and sigs [21:05]
polarbeard and that's it [21:05]

asciilifeform the other takeaway is that ~nsf~ specifically is a magical thing in that the dean had nothing whatsoever to worry about, even if the grant were for reprocessing babies into lollipops, he would never be answerable for it - washington ~signed~, aha [21:40]

ben_vulpes the insane fucking rules around ESOPs. i tell you. [22:41]
ben_vulpes wall street and congress got a hold of the notion and now there are all sorts of arcane bezzle-quirements like "must get valued by a state-blessed valutron", "must be investment grade paper" etc. [22:42]
mircea_popescu the problem here, and it's a fundamental problem, is that the derps that get employed aren't usually investor grade. [22:43]
ben_vulpes ofc not [22:43]
mircea_popescu they didn't want to make a simple "stock ownership for employees is STRICTLY reserved for employees making over 500k a year and over the age of 50" for obvious reasons [22:43]
ben_vulpes i had to explain how buy-and-hold of non-dividend-paying-stocks the other day wasn't forgoing compounding. [22:43]
mircea_popescu the result is that they have to make an endless array of rules to approximate "not entirely fucktarded teen". [22:43]
ben_vulpes fucktarded teen still gets hoodwinked with worthless paper regularly. [22:44]
mircea_popescu they perceive they gotta try. [22:44]
mircea_popescu the only correct solution is to pay in stock only. you do get alf moaning about his sad fate as an owner of his own fate, [22:44]
mircea_popescu but the alternative is drinking straight crazy from a toilet bowl. [22:45]
ben_vulpes and as a result, my equitizing the staff is miserably difficult. [22:45]
mircea_popescu imo you're trying to make a copper-iron thermostable alloy. [22:45]
mircea_popescu desist. [22:45]
ben_vulpes explain the parallel in a little more detail? [22:46]
mircea_popescu there is absolutely no reason people who make 30 an hour should own stock ; and if they did it certainly shouldn't be yours. [22:46]
mircea_popescu their needs (represented by copper in this diagram) and the realities of owning stock in a small venture (represented by iron in same) have very different reactions to a change in financial context (represented as temperature) [22:48]
mircea_popescu you're trying to meld two things together that will never, ever stay put as temperature varies. [22:48]
mircea_popescu even if through whatever arcana you get it "good enough" for the current context you happen to inhabit, such as your room. [22:48]

mircea_popescu yes but see, you get them as you need 'em. lyf. [22:54]
ben_vulpes life would be more like you don't get them when you need them. [22:54]
ben_vulpes i am now confronted with the difficult question of what the fuck i'm doing even owning my own stock. [22:58]
mircea_popescu now you are truly welcome. [22:59]
ben_vulpes relatedly, how does one grow worthy of the golden dirigible? kill everyone between you and it? does this hold for the smith? what about brunel? [23:00]
ben_vulpes clearly, there's no 'worthy' but 'demands'. [23:00]
* joshbuddy has quit (Quit: joshbuddy) [23:04]
asciilifeform brunel was in the up elevator [23:06]
ben_vulpes what is this 'up elevator' [23:06]
asciilifeform as was, e.g., tesla [23:06]
asciilifeform ben_vulpes: living in a rising, rather than falling, empire [23:06]
ben_vulpes ah [23:07]
ben_vulpes well that's novel and depressing [23:07]
asciilifeform rewards slightly different sorts of folk [23:07]
* asciilifeform reads thread, and falls down, srsly, ben_vulpes pays his monkeyz stock ? [23:09]
asciilifeform why?! [23:09]
ben_vulpes lol you didn't read the thread didja [23:09]
ben_vulpes toilet paper, and i ain't talkin equity! [23:10]
asciilifeform something about tax dodges, aha [23:10]
asciilifeform 'clever was the turkey, but ended in the soup anyway' [23:10]
asciilifeform (tm) (r) [23:10]
ben_vulpes << same exact story here. californians and it only happens once per year. [23:10]
assbot Logged on 22-01-2016 20:50:17; BingoBoingo: We only got 3 or 4 inches of snow. Yet rather than remove it derps drive over it until it refreezes into a slick that doesn't remove so easily [23:10]
ben_vulpes well it doesn't actually work, asciilifeform [23:10]
ben_vulpes apparently i'm so scary i'm the only one taking the wine^H^H^H^Htoilet paper home [23:11]
asciilifeform oh and you're not running a proper sov-collapse shop until the workers have to bring own shitpaper [23:12]
ben_vulpes dude heaven forfend [23:12]
ben_vulpes i can see it though [23:13]
asciilifeform there are tales of truck stops in finland being picked clean, early '90s, even of fixtures like mirrors and toilet paper ~holders~, for a while. then they were re-equipped sov-style to have nothing worth taking [23:14]
ben_vulpes heh [23:15]
asciilifeform in a sufficiently intense collapse one might expect the toilets themselves to disappear, eventually [23:15]
ben_vulpes good old anemic hand dryers [23:15]
ben_vulpes "wipe your hands on your pants, plebe" [23:15]
ben_vulpes it's good for the envirowhatever [23:15]
ben_vulpes (tr) (m) [23:15]
asciilifeform << you kill the queen of the hive and eat the royal jelly. this gives you five extra appendages, with which to kill other pretenders, and +5 vorpal sword of virility, and a +3 willpower. [23:17]
assbot Logged on 23-01-2016 01:57:53; ben_vulpes: relatedly, how does one grow worthy of the golden dirigible? kill everyone between you and it? does this hold for the smith? what about brunel? [23:17]
danielpbarron << yes and I'm glad I had the sense to stfu after that line [23:17]
assbot Logged on 23-01-2016 00:39:42; mircea_popescu: << lol is this early danielpbarron ? [23:17]
ben_vulpes wow [23:18]
ben_vulpes time flies [23:18]
asciilifeform << around here, there is no shortage of 500k/y,50y.o. mortgaged to the hilt, who would die ~faster than i would~ if income cut to 0 [23:19]
assbot Logged on 23-01-2016 01:40:55; mircea_popescu: they didn't want to make a simple "stock ownership for employees is STRICTLY reserved for employees making over 500k a year and over the age of 50" for obvious reasons [23:19]
asciilifeform a 500k/y chump is just a slightly higher-powered chump [23:20]
asciilifeform and by no automagic means 'investor-grade' humanoid. [23:20]
asciilifeform he ~could~ put the 500 in his pocket instead of mortgaging his anal virginity to a 10m cardboard 'house'. [23:21]
asciilifeform BUT these folks are typically 'bred to be eaten', heavily selected in the first place for the kind of behaviours that preclude 500k-in-pocket. [23:21]
asciilifeform at least here in the reservation, this is so. [23:21]
asciilifeform also [23:23]
asciilifeform also i am quite amused thinking about how ben_vulpes quasi-offered me work in a shop where the toilet paper is supposed to be an appealing perk [23:23]
ben_vulpes again with the not reading the threads omg! [23:23]
asciilifeform what did i miss now. [23:24]
ben_vulpes 'tis in the logs. [23:24]
asciilifeform << do i misinterpret this ? [23:25]
assbot Logged on 23-01-2016 02:07:25; ben_vulpes: toilet paper, and i ain't talkin equity! [23:25]
ben_vulpes yes. that's a joke about stock in startups. [23:25]
asciilifeform ok so you ~were~ speaking of stock. [23:26]
ben_vulpes i was talking about several things! [23:26]
asciilifeform re: paying non-investorgrade folks (as in, people who need to ~work to eat~) in stock, do you know the soviet voucher story ? [23:27]
ben_vulpes no, go on [23:27]
asciilifeform !s privatization [23:27]
assbot 12 results for 'privatization' : [23:27]
asciilifeform de-sovietized affairs of all kinds, from oil&gas to factories, etc. were turned into stock, 'vouchers', parcelled out among the peeeeeple [23:28]
asciilifeform and pretty much all ended up sold for nanopennies [23:28]
asciilifeform so that folks could eat a little in the hungry '90s [23:28]
ben_vulpes << 'tis just a step on the road to the obvious solution of entirely disposable versions of all the above [23:28]
assbot Logged on 22-01-2016 23:07:57; asciilifeform: pete_dushenski: actually these are cheap, esp. in that when they explode, nobody's widow gets a pension [23:28]
asciilifeform ... ditto the flats, which were now owned by the residents, making 'insta-millionaires' [23:29]
asciilifeform but somehow most ended up bought up by folks who didn't have to worry about eatin' [23:29]
asciilifeform and now the rest, pay them rent. [23:29]
asciilifeform mega-unsurprise [23:29]
asciilifeform << see also. [23:30]
assbot Logged on 02-05-2014 03:15:33; asciilifeform: basic course on russian privatization. 'your formerly state-issued flat is now yours. you are a millionaire!' - 'neato. but my salary hasn't been paid in a year. gotta buy something to eat. what does dinner cost?' - 'half a million.' [23:30]
ben_vulpes << which is mind-boggling given the thing has a what turbofan? [23:30]
assbot Logged on 22-01-2016 23:19:18; asciilifeform: incidentally 'predator' is a very slow machine, a toy chopper could quite likely catch up with it [23:30]
asciilifeform thing is also large and draggy [23:31]
ben_vulpes we have yet to arrive at state-issued flats for all but the most deeeeeserving of poor. [23:31]
ben_vulpes asciilifeform: japanese for-placement-only netdrones could probably snag one [23:31]
asciilifeform ben_vulpes: and not actually similar, even where exist. american 'sec 8' leprosoria are not in any sense whatsoever owned by the inhabitants [23:31]
asciilifeform whereas sov flat inhabitant could only be dislodged by death or prison term [23:32]
asciilifeform a much stronger ownership than ANYBODY in usa has of ANY real estate [23:32]
ben_vulpes << enough with the aligned shits [23:33]
assbot Makefile · GitHub ... ( ) [23:33]
ben_vulpes you can smell the users of fashionable editors a mile away [23:33]
ben_vulpes i'd wager this one uses Atom [23:33]
ben_vulpes or Sublime Dicks [23:33]
asciilifeform bawawhat [23:33]
asciilifeform i thought 'atom' was a www syndicatron thing [23:34]
asciilifeform sublime dicks, on the other hand, is mega-popular for some reason, colleagues had it and i lullzed seeing the nag popup interrupt their session [23:34]
ben_vulpes some "we're going to revolutionize editing text by pretending emacs was never a thing" [23:35]
ben_vulpes lol over there too? [23:35]
ben_vulpes i routinely mock users who have the escape wired into their brains [23:35]
asciilifeform emacs is a thick enough, barbed enough broomstick, that this is not hard to pull off [23:35]
ben_vulpes "what, can't afford 10 dollars for your text editor?" [23:35]
ben_vulpes (or two man-years, yes) [23:35]
asciilifeform doubly lulzy when you're all pro re folks who 'ida' all day long [23:36]

asciilifeform and too lazy to bust the idiot nagware [23:36]
ben_vulpes the mind, it doth boggle. [23:36]
* assbot gives voice to polarbeard [23:36]
polarbeard lol, sublime [23:36]
polarbeard I use the only and true editor [23:36]
asciilifeform 'ed' ? [23:37]
ben_vulpes nano! [23:37]
polarbeard notepad.exe [23:37]
ben_vulpes editor of the dirigible [23:37]
asciilifeform pair'o'wirez+teeth [23:37]
ben_vulpes electron beam and a good set of sights [23:37]
polarbeard aggresive looks to the keyboard [23:37]
ben_vulpes << what? no. [23:38]
assbot Logged on 22-01-2016 23:52:58; polarbeard: after verifying, patches are split into hunks [23:38]
ben_vulpes << what? what?! [23:38]
assbot Logged on 22-01-2016 23:55:19; polarbeard: there is no v [23:38]
* samO has quit (Ping timeout: 250 seconds) [23:38]
polarbeard again, hunks = intermediate state [23:39]
ben_vulpes why. [23:39]
* samO__ (~samO@unaffiliated/samo) has joined #bitcoin-assets [23:39]
polarbeard the script is 300 lines, not hard to review [23:39]
polarbeard again, experiments, do not use [23:39]
ben_vulpes if so easy to review, similarly easy to explain. [23:40]
polarbeard ask [23:40]
ben_vulpes << more dependencies, and again i ask /why/ [23:40]
assbot Logged on 23-01-2016 00:03:11; polarbeard: you need the diff splitter, splitdiff [23:40]
ben_vulpes why? [23:40]
polarbeard make is a build tool, it can build the press [23:40]
asciilifeform i read the whole thing, still can't figure out the 'why' [23:40]
polarbeard why implementing toposort for the nth time [23:41]
ben_vulpes why split the patches, polarbeard, quit dodging the question. [23:41]
polarbeard linear dependencies [23:41]
asciilifeform wait till polarbeard finds out what ~else~ we intend to implement for the n+1th time [23:41]
ben_vulpes << and that's eating the capital of all sins [23:42]
assbot Logged on 23-01-2016 00:33:02; asciilifeform: and to leave plenty over for the common piggy [23:42]
ben_vulpes polarbeard: should reimplementing toposort be impossibly painful for you... [23:42]
* samO_ has quit (Ping timeout: 250 seconds) [23:42]
polarbeard lol, k [23:42]
asciilifeform ben_vulpes: folks who have enough capital to eat the drawn dividends, eat that, and never eat capital. the rest of us, eat whatever falls into the hopper [23:42]
asciilifeform see the su privatization thread again, if this does not make sense. [23:43]
ben_vulpes polarbeard: look at my contribution history. it is very nearly 100% reimplementations of that which asciilifeform or mod6 or trinque have written first. [23:43]
ben_vulpes asciilifeform: i care not why whoever sins however. [23:43]
ben_vulpes whomever? [23:44]
* ben_vulpes is the undereducated american today as every day [23:44]
asciilifeform i can't speak for ben_vulpes, but the idea that folks who what they do for some explicable reason, rather than because of daemonic possession, was - imho - an advance. [23:44]
ben_vulpes asciilifeform: in reference to? [23:45]
asciilifeform in re: [23:45]
assbot Logged on 23-01-2016 02:40:39; ben_vulpes: asciilifeform: i care not why whoever sins however. [23:45]
ben_vulpes oh, whichever sins? [23:45]
ben_vulpes this is like me giving a shit about what gavin and company do and derp about on reddit. [23:46]
asciilifeform the islamic world, for instance, never moved beyond this, and it shows [23:46]
asciilifeform 'electron moves because allah willed so' [23:46]
ben_vulpes the dependency chain of "well i work for satan because i got this useless phd that i got because i had a masters i didn't know what to do with because i got a bachelors that i similarly didn't understand the purpose of because i was told to go to college and" it never fucking ends and i don't really give a shit about the root cause for whatever retardation. [23:47]
ben_vulpes and no this is not "electron" this is why did isaac fuck ahmeds goat [23:47]
ben_vulpes i literally do not care and the spending of time figuring out why the derps do what they do is best left as an exercise to good men like mister backtick who actually enjoy hanging out on all day [23:48]
ben_vulpes and for the umpteenth time polarbeard /why/ split the damn patches and introduce a million new dependencies? [23:48]
polarbeard what dependencies? [23:48]
ben_vulpes "i didn't know any better" is, for the record, an entirely acceptable response. [23:49]
ben_vulpes diffsplit [23:49]
polarbeard *splitdiff [23:49]
polarbeard it's a neat tool [23:49]
ben_vulpes but more importantly the patches [23:50]
polarbeard I aliased it to 'spliff' [23:50]
ben_vulpes why won't you answer that one [23:50]
polarbeard linear dependencies, easier to handle [23:50]
polarbeard intermediate state is all about optimization [23:51]
ben_vulpes violates principles of v, though. [23:51]
ben_vulpes this is 'yagni' optimization. [23:51]
polarbeard you didn't read the script [23:51]
ben_vulpes i have to admit, my eyes glazed over. [23:51]
ben_vulpes i saw some turds, asked some questions, am not entirely thrilled with answers. [23:52]
* ben_vulpes has now filed reports with whip-crackers, can go home to die in sweet embrace, will be off shortly [23:52]
ben_vulpes anyways, interesting thing, polarbeard, perhaps i shall test it some day along side the tools written by people i trust like mod6 and trinque and asciilifeform. [23:54]
ben_vulpes in the meantime, try to understand why we use 'v', and why your failure to do so has lead me to stomp on the ground like a petulant child. [23:55]
ben_vulpes led* [23:55]
