mircea_popescu decimation bear in mind that this sort of thing is seen often enough. [00:02]
mircea_popescu it always seems remarkable when the sec comes out with "oh, clearly they had insider info, held 90% of this improbable strike". but if you go combing over the market, you'll see lots of similar situations all the time. [00:02]
* chiral_ is now known as chiral [00:04]
* chiral has quit (Quit: chiral) [00:04]
* chiral ( has joined #bitcoin-assets [00:04]
decimation mircea_popescu: apparently so. I'm trying to find a way to hedge my mostly long position on us equities [00:05]
* mike_c has quit () [00:06]
mircea_popescu options are rarely the way to go for something like that. [00:06]
decimation well these days bonds and stocks trade as one [00:06]
decimation because the whole thing is predicated on 'usg prints money true/false' [00:06]
* felipelalli (~Thunderbi@unaffiliated/felipelalli) has joined #bitcoin-assets [00:11]
asciilifeform nubbins`: congrats [00:17]
nubbins` ty [00:17]
nubbins` still working on cross-compile toolchain for darwin->arm [00:18]
asciilifeform nubbins`: 'buildroot' builds cross-chain [00:18]
asciilifeform on just about any reasonable unix [00:18]
asciilifeform and i mean all of it [00:19]
nubbins` hm, i'll cheggidout [00:19]
asciilifeform nubbins`: it's what i'm building the whole shebang (as seen in turdel) with [00:20]
asciilifeform nubbins`: my plan is to fit bitcoind & its deps in there [00:20]
asciilifeform as just another 'package' [00:20]
decimation asciilifeform: ideally the thing would have a small lcd terminal for programming ips, keys, etc [00:21]
asciilifeform the output is a kernel and a rootfs (in 'turdel', deliberately baked into one binary to simplify testing) [00:21]
asciilifeform decimation: ideally i would be designing it full time in b-a or whatnot [00:21]
decimation not that this would be of any use to the target audience [00:21]
decimation aye [00:21]
asciilifeform decimation: and it would be baking in my personal fab [00:21]
asciilifeform but we're on 'junkyard wars' not 'who wants to be a quadrillionaire' [00:21]
decimation wait do you mean argentina or #b-a [00:22]
asciilifeform the former [00:22]
asciilifeform (just as example) [00:22]
* asciilifeform doesn't know for a fact whether he could tolerate it long-term [00:22]
nubbins` spent much time in a foreign country? [00:23]
asciilifeform nubbins`: yes, 22 years. [00:23]
decimation asciilifeform: well if I win the swedish lottery I'll fund your fab [00:23]
asciilifeform decimation: i don't think any lottery on the planet pays a tenth of what it'd cost. [00:24]
decimation oh a full chip fab? [00:25]
* nubbins` has quit (Read error: No route to host) [00:25]
asciilifeform chip fab and army [00:25]
asciilifeform and pet economy to feed the two. [00:25]
* nubbins` (~leel@unaffiliated/nubbins) has joined #bitcoin-assets [00:27]
decimation asciilifeform: so you basically want singapore [00:28]
asciilifeform sumthinglikethat [00:28]
asciilifeform but this is rather like asking about that kind of martial colony would feel best [00:28]
decimation well, I would pick an island in the middle of the pacific for definisibility [00:29]
asciilifeform not enough info from my perch to even say something reasonable beyond 'it ain't happening' [00:29]
decimation defensibility [00:29]
* assbot gives voice to nubbins` [00:29]
nubbins` dat off-brand battery [00:29]
asciilifeform island only works if you have thermonukes ready to pop in every major enemy population centre and they know it. [00:29]
decimation eh, kinda [00:29]
decimation the island is good because if you can operate a reasonable air and sea defense system, you are pretty well protected [00:30]
decimation if people wanna use icbm's they are gonna have to be committed [00:30]
asciilifeform 'tomahawk' [00:30]
asciilifeform much cheaper [00:30]
nubbins` asciilifeform:nubbins`: yes, 22 years. <<< lel @ me [00:31]
decimation cruise missiles are just as vulnerable as other aircraft [00:31]
asciilifeform decimation: see old thread: [00:32]
assbot Logged on 08-02-2014 00:14:28; asciilifeform: imagine you possess a death ray that magically zaps a rocket, from any distance. [00:32]
asciilifeform (summary: defence doesn't work) [00:32]
decimation asciilifeform: yes, and on an island you can be the one lobbing rockets at whatever ship/aircraft is lobbing rockets at you [00:33]
decimation the whole problem of air defense becomes much simpler once you can enumerate goodness [00:35]
mircea_popescu entire fucking building reeks of pot. these people... [00:44]
mircea_popescu it's like being in a campus [00:44]
mircea_popescu decimation options have a very strong time correlation. unless you have a very clear date in mind, they're not usually the right tool [00:45]
* badon (~badon@pdpc/supporter/active/badon) has joined #bitcoin-assets [00:46]
decimation aye, you have to 'leap' from one ex date to the next [00:46]
mircea_popescu if you do that you will lose money. [00:46]
mircea_popescu who was the guy with the "short" fund, had some of the horrid0est results ever. i recall discussed here maybe cca 2013 [00:47]
decimation well, the problem I have is picking the stirke price and quantity that is appropriate [00:47]
decimation there are plenty of short funds avialable, but they all have extremely high costs [00:47]
mircea_popescu if you wish to be equity neutral the more common strategy is "buy the equities short the index" or vice-versa. [00:47]
mircea_popescu this is very time-invariant. [00:48]
decimation yeah that's a fair point [00:49]
mircea_popescu asciilifeform: yes, and on an island you can be the one lobbing rockets at whatever ship/aircraft is lobbing rockets at you << no you can't. why do you think "international waters" are so important. [00:49]
decimation well, presumably if they are firing on you from every steradian you have your rights [00:49]
mircea_popescu you have to sink the ship befroe it fires. [00:49]
mircea_popescu after, what's it gonna do. [00:49]
decimation declare the surrounding 2000 miles of sea to be territorial [00:50]
mircea_popescu this is a nude declaration of war. [00:50]
nubbins` 2000! [00:50]
nubbins` my sides [00:50]
mircea_popescu and what happens once some schmoe makes the 2100 mile tomahawk ? you redeclare ? [00:51]
decimation no, you shoot it down once it hits your 2000 mile border without ident [00:51]
mircea_popescu it doesn't. sits at 2050 miles and waves. [00:51]
decimation can do until it runs out of fuel [00:51]
mircea_popescu what, plutonium ? [00:51]
decimation the point is, at 2000 miles it would be infeasible to 'fire on all sides' [00:52]
asciilifeform decimation: lobbing rockets, etc. is a contest of who has the largest pet economy to milk [00:53]
nubbins` this is hypothetical to the point of absurdity [00:53]
asciilifeform decimation: or do you imagine that even something as basic as 'v1' can be built from dirt [00:54]
asciilifeform nubbins`: what a cosmographer does is even less tangible, but we owe a good chunk of early physics to them. [00:54]
decimation it's a fair point, one would have to have a large chunk of wealth [00:54]
asciilifeform decimation: wealth as in functioning tame economy and natural resources. [00:55]
asciilifeform not as in 'numbers in account' [00:55]
mircea_popescu this entire "i'd get an island" thing is not unlike the strange idea of the british troops to wear red. [00:55]
asciilifeform esp. not if said account lives among the folks you intend to blow up [00:55]
mircea_popescu yeah... that'll work... [00:55]
decimation heh [00:55]
asciilifeform ^ [00:55]
decimation it did 'work' for a few hundred years [00:56]
asciilifeform pre-aircraft [00:56]
mircea_popescu right. but you're in the wrong hundred. [00:56]
mircea_popescu see, if i had the magical stone that lets you turn time back FOR THE OTHERS [00:56]
mircea_popescu i wouldn't bother with the island. [00:56]
decimation okay, if not an island? where ? [00:56]
mircea_popescu here. [00:56]
nubbins` [Unicode crap removed] [00:57]
decimation hawala works fine for finance but not for real estate [00:57]
asciilifeform it also, very notably, does not work especially well for physical objects as a class. [00:58]
asciilifeform last i checked, there were no teleporters. [00:58]
mircea_popescu i dun get it. [00:58]
mircea_popescu what is this objection ? [00:58]
decimation where's ascii gonna locate his fab, to be specific [00:59]
asciilifeform objection to a hypothetical 'locale doesn't matter' [00:59]
mircea_popescu why does locale matter ? [01:01]
mircea_popescu decimation the best solution to his problem would seem to me, bribing someone to defraud an existing fab [01:01]
mircea_popescu rather than "build his own" [01:01]
asciilifeform and trust the product from fraud ? [01:01]
asciilifeform and have item fabbed on winblows tools ? [01:02]
mircea_popescu the price for trying to be "supergovernment" is that you lose your claim to title for anything you might "own" [01:02]
mircea_popescu much like un declared tyrants lose their bank accounts. [01:02]
mircea_popescu asciilifeform have it secretly dualboot for all i care. [01:02]
* asciilifeform very confused [01:02]
mircea_popescu have them upgrade to archlinux "for their own interest". [01:02]
asciilifeform how does this 'solve' [01:02]
asciilifeform mircea_popescu: try to recall the thread where we illustrate that the entire extant ic fab ecosystem sits on two or three winblows-only turdwares that's easily 10,000 man-years each [01:03]
mircea_popescu so ? [01:04]
mircea_popescu the problem is no longer "where to place the fab" but "where to find coders". [01:04]
mircea_popescu very substantially different. [01:04]
asciilifeform so who do i 'persuade' to replay 1970-2000 ? [01:04]
mircea_popescu who is different from where. [01:04]
asciilifeform and it isn't 'coders' in the sense of monkeys but actual people, who would be required. [01:04]
mircea_popescu THIS works for who. [01:04]
mircea_popescu no argument. [01:04]
mircea_popescu but if you ask me, i do not see ideal situation as "private island where 04938509348509834 SAM batteries and nukes, and purpose-built IC fab" [01:06]
mircea_popescu i see it as, "elaborate virus, makes targetted fab shit out our own gear "accidentally", we buy it as tailings for pennies" [01:06]
nubbins` oh ho [01:06]
mircea_popescu did i ever recount the very early "special order" scam romanians got hit with ? in like 91 ? [01:06]
asciilifeform mircea_popescu: this is about as plausible as the virus scene from the infamously bad film 'independence day' [01:06]
nubbins` duod the alien computers obv used compatible tech [01:07]
decimation except, the fab software in question doesn't 'fail' like a biological thing, it 'fails' like a fragile machine, as in - it doesn't work at all [01:07]
mircea_popescu decimation depends on the code. [01:07]
asciilifeform and at any rate, it needs to happen N times, not 1. [01:07]
* beetcoin has quit (Changing host) [01:07]
* beetcoin (~beetcoin@unaffiliated/beetcoin) has joined #bitcoin-assets [01:07]
mircea_popescu and so it will. [01:07]
decimation and achieve substantial yeild [01:08]
mircea_popescu decimation 1% yield, as long as it's not your run, is fine isn't it. [01:08]
mircea_popescu even better than 99% yield. [01:08]
asciilifeform cuckoldry doesn't work on everything. [01:08]
mircea_popescu buy the duds, "sell them for scrap" [01:08]
decimation how do you gain title to the 100 units to get one working one? [01:08]
mircea_popescu most of them, anyway. [01:08]
mircea_popescu asciilifeform yes, it does. [01:08]
mircea_popescu decimation buy them for scrap ? [01:09]
mircea_popescu they ARE garbage are they not. [01:09]
asciilifeform this is laughable to anyone who can be bothered to learn even the basics of how such a plant is run. [01:09]
decimation wait, I thought they were 'dual use' [01:09]
mircea_popescu decimation the plant not the boards. [01:09]
mircea_popescu asciilifeform do tell ? [01:09]
nubbins` asciilifeform it's like a blue jeans factory, they have a "factory seconds" shop out front [01:09]
nubbins` and another in bangor [01:09]
mircea_popescu (and ftr, the island thing is laughable too. we're doing lolz here) [01:09]
decimation well for one thing, each and every 'run' of a modern chip requires milllions in setup fees [01:10]
asciilifeform just when i didn't think that anyone could conceive of a less plausible scene than the island... [01:10]
mircea_popescu (just, THIS lolz you're better equipped to appreciate, not being gunnery sgts or w/e) [01:10]
mircea_popescu decimation so ? [01:10]
asciilifeform no need to be a professional artillerist to see the absurdity of 'shoot everything that moves in the sea' hypothetical [01:10]
decimation literally tens of thousands of indians/chinese are employed testing the output of each run [01:10]
asciilifeform of each -layer- [01:10]
mircea_popescu decimation so ? they know it failed. [01:11]
mircea_popescu what now ? [01:11]
decimation why would they risk revealing their ip by selling dud units [01:11]
mircea_popescu huh ? [01:11]
asciilifeform the number of not-entirely-brainless people that would have to be duped simultaneously is large. [01:11]
mircea_popescu what, they do the melting down in house ? [01:11]
decimation absolutely they do [01:12]
mircea_popescu asciilifeform not more than say for your dr. lezzie theory above. [01:12]
asciilifeform mircea_popescu might imagine that the fab is a largely automatic affair, but this is not so [01:12]
mircea_popescu decimation i'll bet you they subcontract it away [01:12]
nubbins` now you gotta own an Iron Mountain franchise too? [01:12]
mircea_popescu and if they don't presently... [01:12]
mircea_popescu nubbins` wut ?! [01:13]
asciilifeform i can see mircea_popescu's scenario playing out -with bribery- rather than elaborate crapware [01:13]
mircea_popescu the word bribe was in there. [01:13]
asciilifeform in fact, this is quite like the thread from my first contact with #b-a [01:13]
asciilifeform or one of them, anyway, where i theorized that the bulk of mining power is produced in exactly this way [01:14]
mircea_popescu anyway, point being : we don't construct a new earth. [01:14]
mircea_popescu we repurpose the extant one. [01:14]
mircea_popescu sorry to disappoint the settlers. [01:14]
decimation even with bribery, it would take a very large dole and a tight organization [01:14]
mircea_popescu right [01:14]
asciilifeform i for one would settle for autonomous food-n-shelter-tron [01:14]
asciilifeform could probably come up with a fab. in time... [01:15]
mircea_popescu but CHEAPER THAN ISLAND [01:15]
decimation that's not obvious to me at all [01:15]
mircea_popescu really ? [01:15]
decimation how much do you think pitcairn island costs [01:15]
mircea_popescu here we go again with this nominalist fallacy. [01:15]
asciilifeform decimation: it may as well be in center of washington [01:15]
asciilifeform decimation: for all the sovereignty the 'title' of the island gets you. [01:15]
asciilifeform or which 'cost' was spoken of [01:16]
mircea_popescu you'd have to buy midway to get the 2k miles you want [01:16]
decimation in the case of pitcairn, it is 'self-governing' with 60 voters [01:16]
mircea_popescu how much does midway cost ? [01:16]
mircea_popescu it's self governing like ukraine is self-governing. [01:16]
decimation obviously usg aint' selling [01:16]
decimation (midway is a nature preserve now) [01:16]
asciilifeform also recall the 'seastead' thread [01:16]
mircea_popescu decimation uk fashion, this [01:16]
asciilifeform (there is a subculture of folks who imagine that going to see somehow rids you of usg) [01:17]
mircea_popescu how to suspend laws ? o i know, turn it into a forest!!1 [01:17]
asciilifeform *to sea [01:17]
nubbins` sealand! [01:17]
decimation george bush turned 2000 miles of territory west of hawaii into a forest [01:17]
decimation [01:20]
assbot Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia ... ( ) [01:20]
mircea_popescu lol [01:21]
decimation " It is slightly larger than Australia's Great Barrier Reef Marine Park, approximately the size of the country of Germany, and just slightly smaller than Montana." [01:21]
asciilifeform wai wat [01:22]
decimation and you are right, the enviro-nazis who heavily influence usg want to turn it into a forest precisely to suspend all law [01:22]
decimation asciilifeform: usg owns all the islands from hawaii to midway [01:23]
asciilifeform it also owns europe [01:24]
asciilifeform what of it [01:24]
decimation perhaps in a few decades when france has collapsed sufficiently, it would be possible to seize an island from french polynesia [01:25]
asciilifeform ... and do what on it? [01:26]
asciilifeform you can already 'seize' a ship-sized 'island' from... the sea [01:26]
asciilifeform it doesn't buy you sovereignty [01:26]
asciilifeform or autarky [01:26]
mircea_popescu i wonder why this island/boat/w/e thing is so appelaing. [01:28]
asciilifeform mircea_popescu: because everybody wants to get the fuck away from the buggers [01:29]
asciilifeform and likes to imagine that there is a place to go [01:29]
asciilifeform where there is something more to do than dig own grave [01:29]
decimation aye [01:29]
* decimation has quit (Remote host closed the connection) [01:29]
BingoBoingo where there is something more to do than dig own grave << Like keep one's coffin afloat [01:31]
BingoBoingo i wonder why this island/boat/w/e thing is so appelaing. << Because hell is other people, "Get off my lawn", and other sorts of dissatisfaction with the rest of the human race [01:32]
mircea_popescu aha [01:32]
asciilifeform ^ [01:32]
mircea_popescu maybe a little bit in there of racial memory. "last time this worked we did it on boats" [01:32]
asciilifeform this also. [01:32]
mircea_popescu nobody proposes toi, you know, move to mongolia [01:33]
mircea_popescu or kansas. which would be more practical. [01:33]
asciilifeform mircea_popescu: think for a minute [01:33]
asciilifeform the absolute innermost circle of hell is the company of other -poor people- [01:33]
asciilifeform boat is a machine for being poor without having to endure poor people. [01:33]
mircea_popescu but it's empty. [01:33]
mircea_popescu fucking empty. you have any idea how empty alaska is ? [01:33]
mircea_popescu go to novosibiirks and walk. [01:33]
mircea_popescu you have any idea how deserted it gets ? [01:34]
asciilifeform if you start conducting anti-usg commerce there, your immediate vicinity will eventually get slightly less empty. [01:34]
BingoBoingo fucking empty. you have any idea how empty alaska is ? << This is a point. And on land unlike on sea one can travel even if deprived of vehicle. [01:34]
asciilifeform in alaska, or in greenland, or in the pacific ocean. [01:34]
mircea_popescu no. because in alaska you can live, and live well, and alone. [01:34]
mircea_popescu in ocean you, not being either fish or seal, drown. [01:35]
asciilifeform perelman, possibly could. [01:35]
mircea_popescu eh get out. [01:35]
mircea_popescu and no, vicinty would not get less empty. [01:35]
mircea_popescu police is in town BECAUSE THOSE DERPS LIVED THERE ANYWAY [01:35]
mircea_popescu where there's no derps, the usg does not magic some into place. [01:35]
asciilifeform aha and usg herbicide runs over the coke fields of colombia never happened ? [01:36]
asciilifeform usg is perfectly happy to magic into the right place [01:36]
mircea_popescu you wisah to grow cocaine on your island ?! [01:36]
asciilifeform as a hypothetical [01:36]
asciilifeform litmus test, so to speak, of sovereignty [01:36]
mircea_popescu srsly ? [01:36]
asciilifeform or nukes, if you like [01:36]
mircea_popescu well, if that's the standard i guess the south east of russia then, definitely. [01:36]
asciilifeform can you work on a plausible thermonuke in your kingdom? if yes, then sovereign. [01:37]
mircea_popescu between tashkent and fuckwascalled [01:37]
mircea_popescu << there. how about that lol. [01:38]
assbot ... ( ) [01:38]
mircea_popescu notice anything ? [01:38]
mircea_popescu "o, is that an airport ?" "no, it's a mall." [01:38]
asciilifeform road for tanks [01:38]
asciilifeform and airstrip when it wants. [01:39]
asciilifeform at any rate, i must confess that i've forgotten what kind of puzzle all of this was intended to be a solution to. [01:40]
asciilifeform if it's 'get out of usg', this is rather like learning that your house has roaches and answering by looking for some small corner which, as of yet, does not have any roaches therein [01:41]
mircea_popescu it was merely my curiosity as to "why island" [01:41]
BingoBoingo [01:42]
assbot PayPal Settles With US For Sanctions Violations | ... ( ) [01:42]
mircea_popescu which seems akin to jews reacting to all the propaganda by building auschwitz by themselves. [01:42]
mircea_popescu lawl. [01:42]
asciilifeform mircea_popescu: i can speak only for myself, but i live by 'hell is other people' [01:42]
mircea_popescu BingoBoingo why not "this casts doubt on the overall viability of the USD as a unit of account and medium of payment" etc ? [01:42]

mircea_popescu asciilifeform sea is very poor solution ot this, seeing how its very demanding nature GUARANTEES you need other people. [01:43]
mircea_popescu to prefer a solution that clearly will not work, and by necessity, over a solution that clearly does in fact work is one definition of insanity. [01:43]
asciilifeform specially-selected other people. but otherwise yes [01:43]
BingoBoingo mircea_popescu: That comes in next story on not-Bitcoins behaving badly. [01:43]
mircea_popescu asciilifeform no longer a solution to your stated problem. [01:44]
asciilifeform i suspect that most 'boat people' would actually rather be mircea_popescu, but you can go and buy a boat. you cannot buy 'be mircea_popescu' [01:44]
mircea_popescu but merely because yo ucan buy something... [01:44]
mircea_popescu i mean why not buy a can of sprayable cheese then ? [01:45]
mircea_popescu spray some on door. [01:45]
asciilifeform people with limited imagination actually dream of attainable things [01:45]
asciilifeform believe or not! [01:45]
mircea_popescu cheaper things that also do not work could be had... [01:45]
asciilifeform i know, it's mind-boggling [01:45]
asciilifeform 'here have this brick' [01:45]

assbot Logged on 26-02-2015 22:21:49; asciilifeform: 'and when we had nothing remaining to eat, they gave us a turnip, they gave us a beet. "here, have some mice, have some fleas! here, have some typhus! die of disease!"' - warsaw ghetto [01:45]

mircea_popescu asciilifeform thinking on the ghetto stuff... it would perhaps not be inconceivable that the contemporaneous jewish obsession with socialism is derived from the utter failure of their previous, individualistic, capitalist approach. [04:00]
mircea_popescu overcompensation if you will, against the thing that produced the "train ticket sold for diamonds" as well as the "i'm fine, even have caviar, what if the world is coming apart" [04:00]
mircea_popescu which may even explain the "civilised world" obsession with same, if one subscribes to the theory that hey, said world's been doing nothing but cribbing the jews since whatever, 500ad. [04:01]
mircea_popescu in this worldview, the completely insane political construction of "the state of israel" suddenly makes sense, and a lot of it. key to perpetuating the welfare state - no peace in palestine. [04:02]
mircea_popescu and for that matter, once one end's threatened, tptb would increase the pressure on the sore spot - hence all the realignment behind palestine these days. [04:03]
mircea_popescu chiefly by us - the socialist entity most threatened in its socialism. [04:03]
pete_dushenski i can see that. [04:04]
mircea_popescu o hay p [04:04]
pete_dushenski hey! [04:04]
pete_dushenski the jewish thinking being: if we're all the same, no one will notice that jews != gentiles [04:05]
pete_dushenski so ya, there's "no colour, no gender" etc. [04:05]
mircea_popescu i thought that was the idea behind "hygienic" circumcision [04:05]
pete_dushenski if one is to ascribe any purpose to it [04:06]
pete_dushenski other than "do this to prove your faith" [04:06]
mircea_popescu i suppose cutting bits of genitals is the sort of thing that's interesting enough to explain itself, [04:06]
pete_dushenski right. like not eating delicious pork. [04:07]

mircea_popescu so argentina called for a general strike. [14:55]
mircea_popescu because in a country that's essentially living off fumes, the smartest thing to do is ask for more money from the government. [14:55]
mircea_popescu i ownder what they'll actually do once the government stops paying salaries outright. [14:56]
mircea_popescu not like anyone has a real job anyway. [14:56]
mike_c i heard a south american joke about argentina the other day [14:57]
mircea_popescu somehow tho i imagine anything sane, like begging while crawling naked in the street is right out [14:57]
mircea_popescu after all, argentina is the african country with highest self-respect per capita. [14:57]
mircea_popescu which ? [14:57]
mike_c "how do you make money off an argentine? you buy them for what they're worth and sell them for what they think they're worth" [14:57]
mircea_popescu this is so eerily apt. [14:57]
mike_c apparently everyone else in south america already knew this about them :) [14:58]
mircea_popescu it's like living in california once all the americans died out and were replaced with spanish speaking italian gypsies. [14:58]

mike_c but, now a separate pogo branch must be maintained? [18:20]
* ascii_field would maintain it [18:21]
mike_c does the -disablewallet config switch exist in this version? that would be easier way to prevent children from playing with matches [18:21]
ascii_field mike_c: would like to cut some footprint [18:22]
mike_c i thought it was like 5.5mb. [18:22]
ascii_field mike_c: the buildroot i have is theoretically retargetable to multiple cpu archs and boards with minimal effort [18:22]
ascii_field mike_c: i have several candidates for replacement of 'pogo' if something 'happens to' our supply. [18:22]
punkman we don't really want wallet code in regular bitcoind anyway [18:22]
ascii_field ^ [18:22]
mike_c yeah, fine, but that's different from starting a pogo branch. if it gets cut from master branch, problem solved (if there is a problem?) [18:23]
mike_c ascii_field: you saying that cutting it makes it more portable? or just easier to fit on smaller arch. [18:24]
ascii_field mike_c: would like to fit on boards with 8M rom [18:24]
ascii_field but more general principle [18:24]
mike_c ok, so cut it later when we have a 8m device we want to fit it on. [18:24]
ascii_field smaller -> more auditable. [18:24]
nubbins` hmm [18:25]
ascii_field but i will leave this for the folks whose project it actually is, to decide [18:25]
punkman maybe add my mining-snip patch too [18:25]
nubbins` suppose instead of -disablewallet, flip the bit and make it -enablewallet? [18:25]
ascii_field punkman: for the wallet-less version, would be logical. (how can mine without wallet ?) [18:25]
nubbins` short-term [18:25]
ascii_field or i suppose you could... [18:25]
nubbins` make wallet=off the default while we decide when to trim [18:25]
nubbins` in a perfect world, remove_wallet.patch [18:26]
nubbins` included as an "extra" in -RELEASE.tar.gz [18:26]
mike_c short-term (i.e. pogo) solution is to run bitcoind with the config switch. in the near future the foundation will remove the wallet and miner and then it will be smaller around the same time we want to fit it on a 8m device. [18:26]
nubbins` (/me imagines makefile.osx in same "extra" [18:26]
mike_c serendipity will prevail [18:26]
mike_c of course, i use 'we' loosely since all i've done is buy a pogo and wait. [18:27]

ascii_field nubbins`: selectable [18:40]
ascii_field nubbins`: little-endian by default [18:40]
nubbins` i'll stick with that [18:40]
ascii_field (most recent embedded system-on-chip are selectably-endian) [18:40]
nubbins` you have a buildroot .config you can pop up somewhere? [18:40]
ascii_field nubbins`: it's a mega-turd. not just one config, but four, and they have to be packaged in a certain way [18:41]
ascii_field ideally will wrap this up tonight [18:41]

ascii_field mike_c: not quite [18:56]
mike_c it would be a bad wallet, but it would be a start [18:56]
ben_vulpes asciilifeform: and this to reduce size of bitcoind binary? [18:56]
ascii_field ben_vulpes: that, and remove the 'attractive nuisance' [18:56]

mircea_popescu while it doesn't amount to conspiracy, it factually functions as one. flows driectly from confirnation bias. [21:51]
mircea_popescu mno, google doesn't either follow links or care about the results since years ago. [21:51]
Chillum Not sure what you mean by whisper [21:52]
mircea_popescu the certain (worthless) app was being discussed earlier re the guardian piece [21:52]

mircea_popescu Chillum mind that what i said was, "in the article whisper made on wikipedia to advertise itself, which is what wikipedia is principally used for, they depict themselves as so and so, because that's what they perceive is aspiration-able" [21:53]
Chillum we discourage people from writing about themselves [21:54]

mircea_popescu right. [21:54]

mircea_popescu "Bedford, if you really wrote that, I ask you to resign your adminship. I have no opinion right now if such a request is legitimate based on policy, or precedent. I only know you've lost my faith in your ability to act in a reasonable and impartial manner. And if you didn't write it, you need to find out who is impersonating you on myspace, because they're making you look really, really, really bad." [22:41]
mircea_popescu and soon enough jimbo himself [22:41]
decimation lol [22:42]
mircea_popescu *I have desysopped him. This is not even a close call. He's so far over the line of the conduct - both onsite and offsite - that I expect from admins that nothing short of a full and complete apology for his behavior and a retraction of his comments will do. Additionally, he will have to stand for re-election if he dares. As for me, I would never vote for someone with this kind of behavior in his history." [22:42]
mircea_popescu this is VERY amusing, seeing how child porn is in jimbo's history. [22:42]

mircea_popescu notgonna bother proving. [23:17]
asciilifeform because it has a somewhat glossy pinhole [23:17]
mircea_popescu also, by the time things are in that rut, cheaper to bribe agents than to fight the tech war. [23:17]
decimation asciilifeform: they already have many such bans [23:17]
decimation 'two-party consent' [23:17]
decimation actually it would be amusing for a robber to sue you for recording him without permission [23:18]
asciilifeform probably happened [23:18]
decimation or more precisely, the state to charge you [23:19]
mircea_popescu i know of case robber suing because he hurt himself falling through hole in roof he made [23:19]
Chillum I don't think you have an expectation of privacy while robbing [23:19]
decimation Chillum: that's now how the wiretap law is worded [23:19]
asciilifeform mircea_popescu: more than one case in usa [23:19]
mircea_popescu but, france [23:19]
asciilifeform one even including a power saw [23:19]
* copumpkin (~copumpkin@unaffiliated/copumpkin) has joined #bitcoin-assets [23:19]
asciilifeform that burglar decided to play with [23:19]
asciilifeform for no particular reason, in some schmuck's garage [23:19]
Chillum anyone can sue for any reason, the question is how successful were they? [23:20]
assbot [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 107200 @ 0.00026369 = 28.2676 BTC [+] {3} [23:21]
mircea_popescu you gotta hire a laywer right ? [23:21]
mircea_popescu so that successful. [23:21]
Chillum that is not a high... bar [23:21]
decimation anytime lawyers are involved everyone except lawyers loses [23:21]
Chillum to hire a lawyer you need money and... just money [23:22]
mircea_popescu << pando throwing a shitfit. "how dares anyone say i am what my history rather than my narrative!11" [23:22]
assbot Yes, Jimmy Wales, There Is a Right To Be Forgotten | PandoDaily ... ( ) [23:22]
mircea_popescu Chillum maybe. this is not exactly so, much like to get a plumber is not just a matter of money. [23:22]
Chillum right to be forgotten? [23:22]
mircea_popescu depends where you live, how famous you are etc. [23:22]
mircea_popescu Chillum idiotic eu concept. let's make up rights maybe people vote for us. [23:23]
asciilifeform mircea_popescu: recall the thread where i posited that being a kiddie diddler is a prime grade qualification for becoming a usg stooge (on account of having a ready jail string to be pulled by) ? [23:23]
Chillum there are lawyers with standards and there are lawyers who will take any paid job [23:23]
mircea_popescu asciilifeform you don't say ?! [23:23]
asciilifeform probably a higher qualification than having attended harvaprinceyalebridge [23:23]
Adlai what's a kiddie diddler? [23:23]
Adlai as in 'hacker'? [23:23]
mircea_popescu probably somehow who rearranges kids [23:23]
mircea_popescu with his cock [23:23]
Adlai like the young master s [23:23]
Chillum blackmail and covert ops have gone hand in hand historically [23:24]
mircea_popescu asciilifeform subreason i linked that is, check out jimbo mouthpiece for google. ALSO not algorithmic, exactly. [23:24]
Chillum but there are agents and there are assets [23:24]
asciilifeform who is surprised. [23:24]
Chillum being an agent is having a job, being an asset is being property [23:24]
asciilifeform agent is the fella who recruits assets. [23:25]
asciilifeform this is known to schoolchildren [23:25]
asciilifeform although i suppose in different cultures there might be other names [23:26]
mircea_popescu Chillum hey, how did you end up in here ? [23:26]
Chillum nubbins` said the converstation was better here [23:26]
* nubbins` shrugs helplessly [23:26]
nubbins` was i right? [23:26]
Chillum oh ya, meeting of the minds [23:27]
asciilifeform mircea_popescu: re: pigeons: let's scratch the arithmetic itch. approx. 8400 km from me to b-a. a LiMnO2 (non-rechargeable) battery yields approx. 400 Wh/kg. [23:27]
mircea_popescu ok... [23:28]
asciilifeform let's suppose we are satisfied with a leisurely 100km/hr transit. [23:28]
decimation lol [23:28]
asciilifeform 84 hr. voyage [23:28]
mircea_popescu what flies 100km/hr ? either 16 or 600. [23:28]
asciilifeform out of my arse i pull a 250 watt engine. [23:28]
asciilifeform ;;calc 84*250/400 [23:28]
gribble 52.5 [23:28]
asciilifeform kg of LiMnO2 cell [23:29]
Chillum regarding pigeons: [23:29]
assbot RFC 2549 - IP over Avian Carriers with Quality of Service ... ( ) [23:29]
asciilifeform did i miss anything ? [23:29]
mircea_popescu Chillum it's not better per se, just the variety of assholes is greater. [23:29]
asciilifeform (payload, naturally; wings; extra) [23:29]
decimation asciilifeform: that's not a small pigeon [23:29]
Chillum diversity is the key to assholery [23:29]
asciilifeform but not a 'boeing' either [23:29]
asciilifeform or even a 'cessna' [23:29]
mircea_popescu asciilifeform electric batteries are a joke. [23:29]
asciilifeform more like an andean condor. [23:29]
decimation well, it's probably close to a cessna [23:29]
mircea_popescu gasoline is this 1.5mw battery. [23:29]
decimation yeah why batteries [23:29]
asciilifeform burning gasoline gives off heat signature [23:29]
asciilifeform and noise [23:29]
mircea_popescu are you building a flying submarine ? [23:30]
asciilifeform electric - no louder than a drill [23:30]
Chillum RFC 2549 is my favourite RFC [23:30]
mircea_popescu this is what i get for not letting him build pogo cnc [23:30]
decimation make it a turboprop and you can fly up to predator altitutde [23:30]
mircea_popescu now he wants to build a dynamo submarine [23:30]
decimation less air resistance, too far to hear [23:30]
mircea_popescu one day this guy is going to make us sorry we mocked yekudsky [23:30]
mircea_popescu or w/e harry potter fanfic guy's name is [23:30]
asciilifeform anyway, placed here for the enjoyment of the gentlemen t3rr0r1st3z [23:31]
mircea_popescu pop quiz : do terrorists also prefer blondes ? [23:31]
Chillum if you want to stay in the air a long time go for a lighter than air drone [23:31]
asciilifeform Chillum: gigantic radar cross section [23:31]
jurov 50kg battery means 5m3 helium blimp [23:31]
asciilifeform Chillum: the most effectual lift gas, H2, is about 1g/litre [23:31]
asciilifeform calculate necessary envelope of gas! [23:31]
asciilifeform for anything worthwhile as payload [23:31]
asciilifeform and power source. [23:32]
asciilifeform you get a 'goodyear blimp' [23:32]
asciilifeform try hiding that as a 'bird.' [23:32]
Chillum I suppose if you made an aluminum skin like the hindinburg [23:32]
decimation asciilifeform: solar powered aircraft [23:32]
assbot Solar Impulse - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia ... ( ) [23:32]
asciilifeform ^ yes, famouse [23:32]
asciilifeform there is one quite like it hanging in a museum here. [23:32]
mircea_popescu actually what i'd really like to see would be a truely flying microfibre machine. [23:32]
decimation aye [23:32]
asciilifeform again, huge cross-section [23:32]
mircea_popescu think 100sqft of "plastic foil" [23:32]
decimation they are flying around the world with the new model [23:32]
mircea_popescu that actually flies, sorta like a manta [23:32]
Chillum just get some radar, go into the desert and figure out what can hold hydrogen but does not absorb or reflect radar [23:33]
decimation 236ft wingspan [23:33]
asciilifeform mircea_popescu: i designed, on paper, such a thing. ionic lift. [23:33]
Chillum hydrogen itself will be more transparent than air [23:33]
mircea_popescu tiny microprocessor/sensors to graps its situation [23:33]
asciilifeform needs power source about 100x denser than LiMnO2 [23:33]
decimation " 4 × electric motors powered from solar cells and 4 x 41 kWh lithium-ion batteries (633 kg), providing 13 kW[19], electric motors (17.4 HP) each" [23:33]
asciilifeform ;;google ion lifter [23:33]
gribble Ionocraft - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: ; LIfter/Ion Craft, Biefeld Brown Effect, Part 4 - YouTube: ; How Ion Propulsion, Lifters and Ionocrafts Work - YouTube: [23:33]
mircea_popescu and contraction somehow to make it move. [23:33]
mircea_popescu that'd be a kickass robot. [23:33]
Chillum high voltage on those ion lifters [23:33]
mircea_popescu asciilifeform not straight up like that. a flexible foil that exploits atmospheric randomness [23:34]
mircea_popescu ie, slides according to heat layers. [23:34]
decimation ;;calc (52.5/633)*236 [23:34]
gribble 19.5734597156 [23:34]
Chillum keep in mind that in addition to radar they are looking for signal emissions [23:34]
decimation ^ 19ft wingspan for your 52 kg batteries [23:34]
decimation cessna [23:34]
Chillum an ion lifter would stick out like a sore thumb [23:34]
asciilifeform mircea_popescu: heat layers << as birds do ? [23:34]
mircea_popescu yes but imagine a superthin bird. [23:34]
mircea_popescu "like plastic bag in ocean" more apt. [23:34]
Chillum you could always just fly between mountains [23:35]
mircea_popescu a plastic bag never reaches the bottom, it is ground into mush before. [23:35]
asciilifeform mircea_popescu: one of my intended applications for waveguide motor was to make ornithopter transition from joke to practical [23:35]
mircea_popescu asciilifeform if you could make the waveguide very flat and tiny [23:35]
mircea_popescu it would prolly work for this application [23:35]
asciilifeform arbitrarily thin [23:35]
asciilifeform any conductor can be it. [23:35]
mircea_popescu tho electrostatic may be better [23:35]
Chillum an ornithopter would work fine on Titan [23:35]
Chillum or in the fictional Mars/Barsoom [23:35]
Chillum (not the real Mars though) [23:36]
jurov mircea_popescu: iirc there is medusa-like contraption that was considered most efficient way to keep heavier tha air machine afloat [23:36]
jurov can't find the link [23:36]
mircea_popescu i recall that. something in that vein, yes [23:36]
Chillum did anyone see the Ted talk where they had a hummerbird model flying? [23:36]
mircea_popescu the newer polymers hold a lot of promise for strength etc [23:36]
asciilifeform at any rate, we know precisely what machine ought to look, weigh, and function like. [23:36]
asciilifeform ordinary bird. [23:36]
Chillum humming bird size, flapping wings, a blur [23:36]
asciilifeform say, canada goose. [23:36]
Chillum you could put a neural control system on a real bird [23:37]
mircea_popescu asciilifeform really more like a manta that's an acre and goes in air. [23:37]
asciilifeform ^ no longer fits the 'not distinguishable from actual bird except at visual contact range' bill, does it. [23:38]
asciilifeform brb [23:38]
jurov if can be done transparent [23:38]
nubbins` <+mircea_popescu> Chillum it's not better per se, just the variety of assholes is greater. << this is prob more accurate [23:38]
jurov but it'd need to avoid rain at all costs, i guess [23:38]
Chillum there are plenty of weather balloons out there. They don't follow flight plans. A large balloon would not be too out of place [23:39]
* copumpkin has quit (Quit: My MacBook Pro has gone to sleep. ZZZzzz…) [23:39]
Chillum you can steer by changing altitude [23:39]
Chillum super low power [23:40]
decimation there's folks who make a hobby of locating radiosondes [23:40]
decimation < one example [23:41]
assbot ... ( ) [23:41]
Chillum radio hacking is cool [23:42]
jurov [23:42]
assbot Festo AirJelly - YouTube ... ( ) [23:42]
Chillum it is not that hard to setup a software defined radio to track the transponders of aircraft nearby [23:42]
decimation Chillum: yes the popular tool is the rtl 2832 chip on a usb connected to software that decodes mode-s transponder emissions [23:43]
Chillum On another topic I am trying to hack my router(without looking up how to, figuring it out is the fun part) [23:44]
Chillum I found references to a uart in the firmware [23:45]
Chillum hopefully I can pop busybox or something [23:45]
nubbins` check out openwrt if you get stuck [23:49]
Chillum that is cheating [23:52]
Chillum I want to hack the OS that is on it now [23:52]
Chillum get root access [23:52]
Chillum get doom running [23:52]
Chillum insecurity in routers is a real problem. Most homes have a router that can be hacked by anyone who connects over wifi. From there they can packet sniff [23:53]
Adlai cf [23:57]
assbot Internet Census 2012 ... ( ) [23:57]
Chillum I have found software from 2002 on my router [23:59]
Chillum DLINK likes to keep code a long time [23:59]
