asciilifeform (an event of no practical consequence whatsoever) [00:04]
mircea_popescu lol [00:04]
* mircea_popescu suspects that we're actually the only ones to have the P [00:05]
mircea_popescu but hey, we're also the only ones to want to have the P, because everyone else just needs summaries and narratives. [00:05]

* asciilifeform zcat /var/log/........../access* | grep "prod.txt" [00:07]
asciilifeform mircea_popescu: would you believe. [00:07]
asciilifeform buncha folks! [00:07]
asciilifeform who they are - i've no idea. [00:07]
* King_Rex has quit (Ping timeout: 250 seconds) [00:08]
asciilifeform half a dozen or so complete fetches. [00:08]
mircea_popescu o hey, not bad. [00:08]
mircea_popescu sometimes /me is happy to be contradicted by events [00:08]
* BingoBoingo swears will eventually start publishing bitcoind patches to mailing list and not qntra, but still has to figure out diff, and nao v [00:08]
asciilifeform BingoBoingo: good news, you don't yet have to figure out 'v' [00:09]
asciilifeform (i have not yet released it) [00:09]
BingoBoingo Ah, that is good news. [00:09]
asciilifeform gotta make damn sure that it behaves. [00:09]
asciilifeform incidentally, notion of wot in 'v' is a dir full of pubkeys [00:09]
asciilifeform none of that 'import' and 'retrieve' idiocy [00:10]
asciilifeform get the files. place in dir. [00:10]
mircea_popescu ^ [00:11]
mircea_popescu very much exactly this. there's a line from me somewhere in log going "all i want to figure out is what keys" [00:11]
asciilifeform patches live in another dir. [00:11]
asciilifeform sigs - another. [00:11]
asciilifeform this forms a 'v' workingset. [00:11]
asciilifeform i am saying these things with the secret hope of weaseling out of writing a manual later. [00:12]
BingoBoingo << Replying to our Nigerian Prince [00:12]
assbot Many Pools Rejecting XT in Favor of Other Undefined Fork | Qntra ... ( ) [00:12]
mircea_popescu asciilifeform i think so fart you just might. [00:12]
BingoBoingo i am saying these things with the secret hope of weaseling out of writing a manual later. << I though this is what danielpbarron does [00:12]
asciilifeform thing does exactly three basic kinds of thing - verifies sigs; determines what subcoagulations of spittle in the spittoon are in fact in single strands; and permits operator to select individual strands, and cut'em (by whatever criteria, including signatories or combinations thereof) [00:15]
asciilifeform selections produce a buildable tree. [00:15]
asciilifeform which corresponds to a particular set of leaf nodes in the dependencyflowgraph. [00:16]
mircea_popescu so nice [00:16]
asciilifeform a 'release' is merely a particular kind of vpatch which deliberately touches a desired set of leaves, and turns into a leaf set which, when selected, produces the sought after tree. [00:17]
asciilifeform at any rate, it'll be a handy thing for folks such as hanbot. [00:17]
asciilifeform (in the sense of, people who are not writing these, but desire to make some sense of what has been written.) [00:18]
asciilifeform i have already written the 'mathematical' portion. which actually snarfs up and computers the graph flows, and checks sigs [00:18]
asciilifeform but it still remains to me, to put human knobs on it. [00:19]
asciilifeform so far it is ~one page, of 'python' prog. lang., if anyone has something else they would like to see it in, write to me [00:19]
trinque really illustrates your "fits in head" [00:21]
phf mats: dos dev is sop multimachine. if you read early gamedev reminiscence professional setup almost always involved two machines, the dev environment and the game testing machine, with some rapid way to synchronize the two. not that are you necessarily limited to a single task at a time, you can load a tsr to perform a handful of auxiliary task, like notes or calculator or whatever. i think that's how "widgets" were implemented in apple's system [00:21]
phf 1 through 4 [00:21]
asciilifeform trinque: this is not accidental. [00:21]
trinque certainly not! [00:21]
trinque I am merely observing it. [00:21]
asciilifeform phf: hp200lx dos machine does astonishing things with tsr [00:21]
trinque git for example, sure, has a tree in it, which is to say the monstrously large pile of git concepts has a sort of tree-like structure in it, among myriad other things [00:22]
* asciilifeform did not feel like 'truly knows how to program pc' until he wrote first tsr, as a boy [00:22]
asciilifeform it did nothing of great enduring value [00:22]
phf tsr is right of passage :) [00:22]
asciilifeform trinque: importantly, 'v' is stateless other than the three directories spoken of earlier. [00:22]
asciilifeform and, notably, never alters them [00:23]
asciilifeform it can produce output, which one might at some point sign and place in 'patches' and 'sigs' respectively. [00:23]
asciilifeform or, in the case of flow graph, examine visually. [00:23]
asciilifeform or, when producing a buildable tree - build. [00:23]
asciilifeform but never affects own inputs directly. [00:23]
trinque mhm, functional [00:24]
trinque it's quite a thing; I've worked under guys that demanded minimalism and it didn't hold a candle to this. [00:25]
trinque shows it's not just minimalism that's to be sought, but precisely the right fit of concepts. [00:25]
asciilifeform mats: dos dev is sop multimachine. if you read early gamedev reminiscence professional setup almost always involved two machines, the dev environment and the game testing machine, with some rapid way to synchronize the two... <<< this is how 'embedded' work is still done, and imho it is the correct way to program [00:25]
asciilifeform trinque: ... the right fit of concepts << sometimes called 'orthogonality' [00:26]
phf same for console development [00:26]
asciilifeform in general, whenever one is programming for ~a whole machine~ [00:26]

ben_vulpes << the whole thing's a small nudge or ten away from people with guns realizing that cops hate getting shot at, the state hates cops getting shot at, and generally anyone with the stones to make an effort to rack up up a body count on their way out stands an even chance of not even having to go out [01:41]
assbot Logged on 28-08-2015 02:14:58; moonpunter: well this thing that just happened in ferguson, where the cops showed up with overwhelming force and the kid decided to shoot at them before he died. it's like at what point are you allowed to defend yourself if you are reasonably certain you're going to die.

mircea_popescu "women" may be "dumb". but they're not this dumb. [14:42]
trinque hm, why is rationality on the side of the defeated? [14:43]
mircea_popescu (and yes this is also why the state urges the individual to "be rational". oooofcourseitwould. the only rational thing to do is to preserve the 5th amendment, which is to say : i reserve the right to unilaterally shoot any and all policemen on my say so. because that's what fucking independence is.)

trinque that stood out as glaringly absent in english [16:51]
trinque oh, I admitted my english puniness [16:51]
mircea_popescu trinque depends on gender. [16:51]
trinque lol [16:51]
mircea_popescu but just because english makes a mess of vocative case / demonstrative pronoun / possesives etc doesn't mean much. [16:52]
mircea_popescu (demonstrative is what got boiled down into this/that/these/those) [16:52]
mircea_popescu most languages also have a posessive, which in english is conflated in his/hers/theirs. [16:53]
mircea_popescu like in romanian you can ask "ale cui is pizdele astea ?" (whose are these cunts ?) and the anser come "ale aceluia" (that guy's) or ale aceleia (that gal's) etc. [16:53]

trinque yeah, I can begin to see how a particular language can limit the specificity of expression [16:55]
mircea_popescu (these three males) + (belonging to that guy) = ai aceluia ; (this single female) + (belonging to that group of females) = a acelora. [16:55]

trinque will have to dedicate some later part of life to improving my grasp of other languages. [16:55]

mircea_popescu but the main problem english faces is that it fails to make the complemet distinctions. in romanian : la baieti (to the boys) ; baietilor (to the boys). first tells you where, the 2nd whom. [17:09]

mircea_popescu english, as spoken by the fucking queen, before they got the current crop of hamburg tavern wenches, was in point of fact an actual language. [17:11]
trinque is that "homini" like "upon other men" [17:12]
ascii_field mircea_popescu: that's an explanation, i dare say, not a translation [17:12]
mircea_popescu trinque one's "to whom ?" the other is "to where" [17:12]
mircea_popescu ascii_field much like the british empire was a pretension, not a reality. [17:12]
trinque right, takes much more verbosity to convey similar, but not the same meaning [17:12]
trinque as with git vs V [17:12]
mircea_popescu it is perhaps not an idle topic of inquiry to find how much of the rotten-ness of extant software stack mostly comes from the unfortunate happenstance that it was written by people who spoke english with their women. [17:14]

cazalla BingoBoingo, yeah i understand the numbers thing only has value to you, so i am sure you will not be offended that i don't rate higher than a 4-5 for anyone i've yet to share a meal with. [17:19]
mircea_popescu for instance, in english : "they found the body" (ie, corpse) ; "smoking is bad for the body" (ie, mechanism) ; this is the body of christ. [17:19]
* assbot gives voice to shinohai [17:20]
mircea_popescu in romanian : au gasit ~corpul~ [neinsufletit] ; fumatul face rau ~organismului~ ; acesta este ~trupul~ lui hristos. [17:20]
BingoBoingo More than anything I use the numbers as a rough combination of interactions and "bus factor" [17:20]
mircea_popescu three fucking words. because one's the mechanical body, and the other the biologic body, and the third the metaphysical body. [17:20]
shinohai corpus Christi [17:20]

trinque a graph is a web of relationships [17:27]
trinque I don't know that the relationships need be between things which would be considered to be in the same set [17:27]
mircea_popescu trinque quite exactly : a cosmos is the graph of perceptibles. a universe is the set of perceptibles. [17:27]
trinque very interesting. [17:28]
mircea_popescu and as you might realise, cosmos-focused cultures write fundamentally differfent software from universe-focused culturesa [17:28]
mircea_popescu the latter are preoccupied chiefly with entrance barriers, and are debating, predictably, if building a wall across colorado is worth the hassle. [17:28]
trinque is this sort of phenomenological thinking vs thinking in terms of theory and structure? [17:29]
mircea_popescu as if you know. but hey, the sets are rheaaallly very important to them i tell you. [17:29]
mircea_popescu maybe [17:29]

mircea_popescu trinque in any case "phenomenological thinking" is a void concept. thinking is not described by the subject it's applied to. you said something roughly like "lighting electrictiy". sure, it can be used to bring light. [17:31]

mircea_popescu not the point. the point is that "phenomenology" is directly equivalent with "which discusses things that happen" [17:34]
trinque point is that one may think about phenomena, and not with? [17:35]
mircea_popescu you can contrast it with ontology, or gnoseology for that matter. and obviously you can build other quite clever sturctures. but yours didn't mean anything is all. [17:35]
