Framedragger: BingoBoingo: in the merkel article, s/Germans having been taking/Germans have been taking/ ? :) [05:08]
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo that link dun werk! [07:18]
jurov: ben_vulpes: i'd definitely like to see such thing. otherwise i don't get this obsession with marking stuff "halal" and "haram". [07:20]
jurov: and preemptively, even more so. [07:22]
mircea_popescu: i have nfi who beil cybart is but the article in question is spun copy, a notch under of the conceptual value of fanfiction and about on par with wikipedia articles. [07:24]
mircea_popescu: anyway intel knows him, "one of the more accurate predictors of apple's earnings" guy's been announcing "apple building new company" bla bla for a year [07:25]
mircea_popescu: more's the point : whatcha mean with the haram halal thing jurov ? [07:26]
jurov: that everything must be categorized as forbidden or allowed [07:26]
mircea_popescu: isn't this fundamentally the work of intelligence ? [07:27]
jurov: if it works for you, cool. every time i tried to forbid somehing, turned out I was the fool. [07:27]
mircea_popescu: well, but did you have a reasoning behind it ? [07:28]
shinohai: We forbid you to forbid things. [07:28]
mircea_popescu: c'est interdit a interdire lol. [07:28]
jurov: what reasoning? on basis of experience, i concluded it won't work [07:29]
mircea_popescu: ok, and so then when it did you learned something. [07:29]
jurov: There's also possibility I misunderstood ben_vulpes, ofc. [07:31]
mircea_popescu: well... what was he declaring haram ? i'm confused on that part. [07:31]
jurov: he asked us to [07:31]
mircea_popescu: ok, but what ? [07:31]
jurov: "vetoing out-of-hand a v/patch implementation that diffs at the sexpr level rather than the line level" [07:32]
mircea_popescu: ahahaha i thought you meant that apple pr piece, i was totally lost here. [07:32]

asciilifeform: welcome, ben_vulpes , to the dour world of amd opteron et al, where 'working box is moarprecious than gold, because gold is merely an element in mendeleev table and you can always get more, but there will only get fewer boxes, and quickly' [09:01]

Framedragger: probably me on #b-a :p [09:09]
mircea_popescu: anyway, the way "tech" works in the us aka sv is very simply : get the "hipster ass rorbros" on the wagon, then sell them out later for mass market. [09:17]
mircea_popescu: kinda the deep reason smart people are so very hesitant to join anything. which is all the better - a divided elite is how the plebs get to pretend they matter. [09:17]
mircea_popescu: just like men clean up their kitchen to ensure their survival, just so fungi dirty up the kitchen, to ensure THEIR survival, and of the rats, cockroaches and other elements of the same ecosystem. [09:18]
mircea_popescu: passive niche support is what the game is all about, because indirect effects overwhelm direct effects in nature. [09:18]

Framedragger: dunno if they like you there tho [09:26]
mircea_popescu: i couldn't care less, but sum up the trades for the day, do they come to $100 ? [09:27]
Framedragger: (well, 'alive' as in there are nyms logged in.) [09:27]
mircea_popescu: your thought process never ceases to amaze me :) [09:27]
Framedragger: i've joined about the time you asked about ppusd, getting reminded via nostalgia. there was no interaction as of yet :p [09:27]
Framedragger: maybe too early [09:28]
mircea_popescu: hey, im sure they could buy lithuania [09:28]
mircea_popescu: if apple could buy russia, why not. [09:28]
Framedragger: heh [09:28]
mircea_popescu: there are, after all, NYMS SIGNED IN [09:28]
Framedragger: i'm just sayin', you didn't try hard enough :p [09:28]
mircea_popescu: i'm sorry, i can't hear you over the sound of worthless dollars sloshing around. what was that ? i didn't... try hard enough to find the real place where they don't have meat in exchange for rubles ? [09:29]
Framedragger: i mean, it does seem pretty pathetic... plus, yknow, pay-"call me / charge me back some time"-pal [09:30]
asciilifeform: and hey, monopoly does what it likes [09:31]
mircea_popescu: moreover... why do you think a company would take bitcoin, but refund in fiatola ? [09:31]
asciilifeform: if the next lappy comes with spiked anal cone, what, ben_vulpes won't buy? [09:31]
mircea_popescu: good money drives OUT the bad. [09:31]
mircea_popescu: an they know this. [09:31]
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: if they're anything like the earlier 'bitpay' scam, they hold 0 btc [09:32]
asciilifeform: and can only emit fiatola [09:32]
asciilifeform: any btc they get hold of goes straight to waterfall [09:33]
mircea_popescu: oh wait, the divisibility fallacy ? "the rat doesn't eat because the mouth doesn't hold on to any food!" ? [09:36]
mircea_popescu: gimme a break. [09:36]
asciilifeform: it was my understanding that this rat swallows, digests, and shits within three seconds [09:37]
mircea_popescu: mno. all fiat companies are the same company, call it the united states department of business fronts. [09:40]
asciilifeform: if they actually sold the coinz on the waterfall, and reddit chumpers have it nao, how would you picture them to disgorge it back ? [09:41]
mircea_popescu: that they picked a specialist which handles bitcoin storage is not germane the rat also picked a specialist which handles the fats cycle, called a liver. this doesn't mean the rat dun eat, nor does it mean charcoal is cheese or vice-versa. [09:41]
mircea_popescu: the rat's preference for cheese over charcoal is dispositive in the matter. [09:41]
asciilifeform: why would they store it ? [09:41]
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform why not ? if bitcoin were weaker than fiat ? [09:41]
mircea_popescu: it'd be good business. [09:41]
mircea_popescu: you always want to pay in silver and be paid in gold. that's the rule that "nobody knows it" has little bearing. [09:42]

phf: bank of america? [10:42]
mircea_popescu: eh who's letting the soviets in. no, no. bank of china. [10:42]

mircea_popescu: nato reich gradually being ghettoized, i dunno who the fuck will swallow this theory whereby you actually want to move banking out of brunei. what, world's richest state ? mmkay. [10:49]

mircea_popescu: "apple COULD buy russia meanwhile icbc bought south america" [10:59]
mircea_popescu: and as per the "Won't fucking yield" disbelief, they'll go to their shallow grave kicking and screaming about how great the reich is and how black women matter or some dorkage. [11:02]
asciilifeform: 'yield' means to go to same grave today instead of tomorrow. who the fuck yields. [11:03]
mircea_popescu: there's exactly nothing that'd keep them from coming here and giving away the nuclear button to the l1. yes we'd butcher some daughters / most sons, but so what of it - some'd survive. even the cod knows this much, that the correct reaction is to throw the meat at the knife, rather than to try and protect it. [11:04]
asciilifeform: theoretically same 'nothing' kept germany from surrendering in '43 [11:05]

mircea_popescu: THEY WONT FUCKING YIELD. exactly 0 approach for the actual issues involved, no you can't own your body, no you can't want actualities please consider THIS approach to a purely symbolic relationship with reality. oh, "imagining yourself as a 3yo" won't do it for you ? ok, ok, there's other layers of indirection available! pick one! YOU MUST PICK ONE! [11:40]

mircea_popescu: in brunei, porn is forbidden, fucking your wife is not in the us porn is acceptable, "marital rape" is a thing. [11:42]
* mircea_popescu is persuaded the whole story with imperial ideology is the mandatory indirection layer. [11:43]
mircea_popescu: imagine, you're not allowed to pick up a woman and fuck her you're required to pay someone to pick women and fuck them and film the process and pass it to you! [11:44]
asciilifeform: more subtly, they teach rubes to want certain impossible things -- 'central namespace', 'reversible money', 'transparent email crypto', various follies, that can only be satisfied with their particular dope supply [11:44]
mircea_popescu: "professionalization" amirite. division of labour, am i rite. high tech!!!1 [11:44]
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i suspect that's just natural fallout. [11:45]
mircea_popescu: "could i have cubic sphere with this ?" "sure, why the fuck not." "ah ok then" [11:45]
mircea_popescu: the amusing part being that given indirection layer, cubical sphere is entirely possible. [11:45]
asciilifeform: aha, tracks eyes and where you look - it is flat. [11:45]
mircea_popescu: however implemented it is after all why it's an indirection layer - so it lies. [11:46]
mircea_popescu: indirection lier. [11:46]
mircea_popescu: pete_dushenski maybe they were confused as to how "kid lick ton" translates into chinese ? [11:48]
asciilifeform: btw possibly this village is a tourist trap because not yet allah-snackbar ?? [11:48]
mircea_popescu: the chinese don't have the soviet problem with sharia law from what i've seen. [11:49]

mircea_popescu: individual people i mean [11:49]
asciilifeform: and ~0 leakage save for the occasional machete hero [11:49]
asciilifeform: well not necessarily 'have problem', but say a chinese d00d wants to visit actual britain, vs cairo [11:50]
asciilifeform: possibly it lives in kid lick. [11:50]
mircea_popescu: possibly! [11:51]
asciilifeform: 'A three-bedroom semidetached house sells for about $430,000, local real estate agents say.' << lel just like suburns of washington [11:51]

phf: huuh two thirds of these ana recommendations are basic food hygiene, and how i've been eating for most of my life. the rest is a bit over the top, but doesn't look particularly bad [11:52]
mircea_popescu: phf yes but i ignore those. the "be naked eating and watch yourself" thing is the clincher to my eyes, because WHEN the fuck does empire advise nudity ? never, not in "feel your boobs" public literature even [11:54]
mircea_popescu: and moreover, when the fuck is it "try AND SEE what happens" a criteria ? no, the excuses are always there, "marks are so unfair" blabla. [11:54]

phf: well, right, even if the practices are solid the "and see" part is not going to work, because seeing is broken [12:01]
mircea_popescu: which is kind-of the point of this entire anorexia/bulimia thing : the subjective misperception. [12:02]
mircea_popescu: it's just therapy is almost never successful because it is almost never willing to address the actual core of the problem - which is society, specifically, the impossibility of intelligent youth controlling things. [12:03]
phf: right, the healers in the comments are basically happy inmates, telling her that everything's going to be ok as long as she sticks to prescribed pill regiment [12:08]
mircea_popescu: regimen* [12:09]
mircea_popescu: the sad truth of the matter is the mp trilemma. which reads like so : [12:09]
mircea_popescu: you can have youths with two of three : a) "civilised world" native b) intelligent and c) not self-harming. [12:11]
mircea_popescu: the exact nature of c) is often obscure but there are no exceptions. [12:12]
phf: (i had a good result with a scale before. "here's a scale, write your weight daily in this calendar, in fucking killos, what the fuck" then every single complaint is brought back to the data, if actually intelligent start noticing disparity. "i'm FAAAT but the weight went down by a killo in the past two months, wtf" etc) [12:15]
mircea_popescu: this isn't how it works. [12:25]
phf: how come? [12:25]

a111: Logged on 2016-12-07 14:50 phf: << just fyi, while you can diff an intermediate ~state~ of an image as a sexp, common lisp's input is a ~character stream~. builtin dispatch ~mostly~ operates on forms (like #p #. (concatenate 'string "foo" "bar")), but not always, like #\ comment reads till end of line. [16:46]
trinque: clearly lisp comments are borken! [16:52]
* trinque kids, various other reader macros also violate the homoiconicity [16:55]
phf: trinque: go write scheme, infidel [16:56]
phf: ben_vulpes: yeah, lisp image. fwiw if you're trying to ignore whitespace (since you're going to lose that information in a sexp, unless you preserve that information, in which case you will have to patch it same way), then diff already does it: it's called ignore whitespace (-b or -w or -B depending on usecase) [16:59]
ben_vulpes: is there a difference between ignoring whitespace and only examining the forms that changed? [17:00]
trinque: sounds like it'd produce a patched item that is formatted incorrectly, which would suck [17:02]
phf: well, it's fundamentally different things, but for your purposes it'll be different when there's information in whitespace. like say it's a form that has text in it, and you modify text inside that form, ec. [17:02]
trinque: that also [17:02]
phf: for all other cases it'll ignore the lines that have whitespace changes, but if you make a change that has whitespace change on one line, and then substantial change on another line, that relies on new whitespace, then yeah you get borked formatting [17:04]
trinque: really, it's true that all those lines whose whitespace changed *did change* [17:04]
trinque: their return will now be run through some other form, or now not, or whatever [17:04]
trinque: same thing happens in well formatted C, if you say add an "if" where one was not [17:05]

* ben_vulpes nods [17:11]
phf: ben_vulpes: i don't know how to solve that problem, but "i know, sexp will help us!" is not. you basically need to redesign a bunch of things about reader, have a custom save format (that will look closer to (DEFUN FOO () (IF BAR QUX (PROGN ...)))). sexp nature will help you ~a bit~, but like mp said it's closer to "let's save AST", because sexp don't preserve nearly enough required info [17:11]

mircea_popescu: "burning man" suddenly a lot more psychanalizable than one'd care to. [17:54]
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform this mazepath is grand [17:54]
asciilifeform: they are all pretty great imho. [17:55]

MTBE was the "oxygenate" for which Enviro-whiners massively sued petroleum companies, demanding it be added to gasoline. MTBE is an EPA priority carcinogen. Enviro-whinerism: expensive, shoddy, deadly." << quite exactly how the bullshit works, and worked, in all parts. [18:01]

phf: well, sell polaroid-with-seeeekrit-digicam destroy that whole segment [18:28]

mircea_popescu: that said, he does have stroing support in the sprawling i-wanna-be-a-writer collective, which may actually contain 10k who can part with $10 a year (if not the same 10k each year, still) and if he keeps a tight lid on costs it may well work. [18:42]

mircea_popescu: "Most people in the world are good, and want to be good to each other. Whether they vote that way or not, far more Americans believe in progressive, liberal, inclusive views than regressive, aggressive, conservative ones. Young people know this better than anyone, because young people are overwhelmingly liberal, even more than older people. That’s not because you’re inexperienced — it’s because you’re right." << hur [18:45]
mircea_popescu: r. it is STRICTLY because young people lived on the dole much more than old people and so believe more in dole. many of them for complete lack of any understanding whatsoever that "milk doesn't come from supermarket" and equivalent. [18:45]
mircea_popescu: anyway, we agree : hang in there. [18:46]
mircea_popescu: phf asciilifeform as per your understanding of folk logic, could Кощей have kept the needle anywhere ? [18:50]
phf: probably not, requires a descent/ascent into the cave for the development of hero's journey. so couldn't keep it in his private study or kept some complicated opsec routine with fake needles and multiple storages and rotations, because that would take it out of realm of mythical [18:55]
mircea_popescu: my idea is that it being an ontology (as distinct from and very much opposed to a technology) such is entirely out of the question. [18:55]
phf: i'm not sure i get it. perhaps the idea is that the plot is constructed from conclusions backwards, rather than as a chain of causes and effects resulting in an outcome, then conclusion. so the setup is restricted by what actions hero must perform or what other kind of allegory [19:12]
mircea_popescu: no. you can't fly by your breaches, can you ? nor can you "make yourself" a boyar. nor can koschei DO things. [19:13]
mircea_popescu: in the world in which he lives, you ARE things you don't DO things. [19:13]
mircea_popescu: which is why eg. the notion of "consent" is entirely baffling. what do you mean, ivan should ask natasha. ask her WHAT THE FUCK ?!?! whether she IS a woman ? he can damn well see that ? [19:14]
mircea_popescu: the whole story is decided at the onset - ARE you hero mc heroson ? yes ? then you go kill koschei. no ? then you don't. what do you mean "do what he did" ffs. [19:15]
phf: aah [19:17]
mircea_popescu: kinda what "traditional society" actually means, if the term is used properly. and why derpage eg in the us re "traditional marriage" is so hysterical. really, TRADITIONAL ? mmmkay. [19:18]
mircea_popescu: just because it's your daddy's modern dun make it traditional. [19:18]
phf: "this is how things are around here parts", except nobody ever said that except in movies or when things are no longer are [19:18]
mircea_popescu: aha. [19:19]
mircea_popescu: it's ever only used as a cheap mocking post, see. gotta frame the modern story in some sort of context, [19:19]
mircea_popescu: but it's never more than context not in modern stories at any rate. [19:19]
mircea_popescu: it is however hermeneutics 101, the pons asinorum of the scholarly disciplines. [19:20]
mircea_popescu: diana_coman for some reason it decided i'm anonymous lol. [19:23]
phf: huh, it's unknowable, so either presented as a joke, or as complete hostile aliennes. sort of texas chainsaw massacre kind of stuff. russian equivalent would be narratives about "деревня" [19:27]
phf: forest used to be where the ancestors came from and that where demons and ghouls are. now ancestors come from tradition and that's where wilderness is [19:30]
mircea_popescu: aha. [19:30]
ben_vulpes: danielpbarron: you and a few others :P [19:33]
mircea_popescu: it's also the deep reason why reversion to feudalism / end of modernism is entirely unavoidable. the deep reason "dark ages" guys did what they did isn't them being "stupid", it's the absence of the modernist interface. when the world of possibilities is endless and the only possible trail is offered by strong identity, be it of the chivalric or v/wot type, society works a certain way. [19:35]
mircea_popescu: in order for the modernist delusion to work, some equivalence clases are prerequsite, which is why all modern states are socialisms. if differences matter, "modern democracy" is impossible. [19:36]
asciilifeform: << meanwhile another scamola exchange bites it [19:38]
mircea_popescu: and which is why traditionalist societies guilty pleasure is genealogy, as in heraldics or vtronics whereas modernist societies guilty pleasure is "self improvement" as in miracle diets and college degrees. (no, the two aren't different, the notion that you will BECOME at the college is entirely like the notion that you'll go to heaven through not cursing.) [19:38]

shinohai: These exchanges are like the hydra, 2 more will pop up in its wake. [19:41]
phf: hmm [19:45]
phf: not sure how reversion follows though. it's easy to run away into the forest, because it's completely meaningless. but running away into tradition is equivalent to death (per older thread). "destruction of known universe" [19:55]
phf: oh unless you mean it in a sense that it's inevitable with you or without you [19:56]

asciilifeform: neato [21:33]
danielpbarron: ditto, trb [21:33]
mircea_popescu: phf there's a who and a what. traditional societies put the what in an equivalency ring and discern the who modernist societies put the who in an equivalency ring and discern the what. [21:33]
asciilifeform: trb is static and will run on literally any linux [21:33]
mircea_popescu: let's look at it through the example of the married woman. [21:34]
mircea_popescu: married woman in belgium, a modernist society, expects to fuck her husband, or another man (ie, the who is indifferent) PROVIDED they woo her properly. the what is discerning, and "i fucked him because he bought me roses just like you did 20 years ago you pig" is perfectly "rational". [21:34]
mircea_popescu: married woman in brunei, a traditionalist society, expects to be fucked, in the way which fucking goes (ie, indifferent), by her husband but not by another man. and if her husband fucks with a stick, or with electrified vaginal pears, it's none of her business much like the belgian woman might fuck another woman, or a cat or a bit of plastic, just as long as it DOES the right thing - the brunei woman will fuck in whichever [21:35]
mircea_popescu: manner as long as it IS the right thing. [21:35]
mircea_popescu: excess is actually repressed : for instance the husband that fails to what correctly in belgium goes to jail much like the lover that fails to who correctly in brunei. [21:36]
mircea_popescu: in belgium "but i am her husband" is no defense, but on the contrary, scandalous and in brunei "but i fucked her right" is no defense, but on the contrary, scandalous. [21:36]
mircea_popescu: the major problem of contemporaneous, post-modern, post-structuralist whatever world is that the practical equivalency class is the what, not the who. such as for instance : as long as the product is a web app, you know what shit it will be and all you care about is WHO. which is why we have the entire who structure of code inheritance, much to the chagrin of the "oh noes, wasn't invented here syndrome" belated modernists. [21:38]
mircea_popescu: anyone can make "a prediction" (what=equivalent) but it really matters WHO makes it, as per the pro idiotas article. [21:38]
mircea_popescu: and so on. [21:38]
mircea_popescu: so it's not a matter of reversal. it's a matter that the practical structures of reality favour a certain equivalency class over the other. [21:38]

mircea_popescu: these dudes tried to "leverage" whatever they could think of to "achieve network effects" and bla bla. [21:48]
mircea_popescu: usually, it doesn't work. it is certainly a thinking man's coming of age, when he finally develops a skin : that keeps this sort of bacteria at bay, and that still allows copulation with the other humans. [21:49]

asciilifeform: folx who get set on fire probably also do not particularly think much of the joys of being on fire... [21:53]
mircea_popescu: in short, your at ease notion of you and the actual perceptible, historical fact of you are very tenuously bridged, and that bridge is especially dependent on the "at ease" part. [21:54]
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: from whence comes the notion tha tthey are bridged ? [21:54]
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform certainly. but the fact is that most ww2 combatants did not fight at home or in their neighbourhood or even city. except perhaps it could be argued for the fins. [21:54]
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform from a comfortable life. [21:55]
asciilifeform: even laziest, most 'comfortable' folx, still understand that the next day piano could fall, bus -- run over, etc. neh ? [21:55]
asciilifeform: and that it'll have 0 to do with 'self-concept' they had [21:55]
mircea_popescu: this is not the matter. most girls understand, somewhere deep down, that if i come in and grab them by the hair and drag them to their cell they will at the very least love the child they conceive, and eventually learn to live the cell. [21:56]
mircea_popescu: just, this knowledge of the cunt is amply repressed in most cases. [21:56]
mircea_popescu: to some degree "society" needs them to for its definition of them to be fulfilled to a larger degree the currently fashionable notions of self require them to as well. but anyway - people will lvie everywhere, and historically have. [21:57]
mircea_popescu: still, the effects are often funny - you can get most 15 yos to agree that they'll "never turn out like their mothers" or "die before they're old" or such manifestations of the subjective sentiment of bridging. [21:58]
asciilifeform: you could probably get typical idiot cow to agree that 4 == 5 on odd tuesdays, without breaking a sweat [22:00]

mircea_popescu: holy shit, people can barely type out their name without reaching for a napkin to clear the drool, i'm going to index the 5 billionth prime number as such. [22:35]
mircea_popescu: because i run a farm for idiot us-born capons in haskell on cloud and pay 12mn/year for a 1bn items index. [22:35]
mircea_popescu: motherfucker! [22:37]
mircea_popescu: verbatim from article : "And others type in what they think of as normal queries for their day-to-day work even if they seem weird to you (e.g., a biologist might query for GTGACCTTGGGCAAGTTACTTAACCTCTCTGTGCCTCAGTTTCCTCATCTGTAAAATGGGGATAATA)." here's that search : [22:38]
mircea_popescu: apparently... a BIOLOGIST might NOT search for that an imbecile pretending to be a computer engineer however would. [22:38]
mircea_popescu: this is an eminent case of "Yes, yes, I know how it's doublespoken - socialism is not about them making their own lives better. It's all about making "other people's lives" better. Because it's so selfless and "good" and - most importantly! - because it can't be measured. If they dedicated themselves to making their own lives better, there'd be a definitive authority to say when they failed. But if they instead pretend to be [22:39]
mircea_popescu: all about making "other people's" lives better - well! Should anyone claim they failed they can just change the "other people", can't they! The socialist electorate, always and everywhere ein anderes. That enchanted, imaginary public which supports you (from a safe distance) in your quest as you destroy the little you actually have." [22:39]
mircea_popescu: he's solved the problems other people might have, on the basis of what he imagines a biologist might do, which is so pointedly not what any biologist ever does you can scarcely begin to wonder what fucking highschool the author frequented, because his mental furniture seems to have diverged from the common trunk somewhere around the age of NEGATIVE THIRTEEN, [22:40]
mircea_popescu: and all this at a cost to me of 12mn a year for NOT SOLVING THE PROBLEM. [22:40]
mircea_popescu: motherfucker i want to kill this idiot. [22:40]
mircea_popescu: !!rate dan luu -10 unrecoverable imbecile. this rating carries to first order descendants - if you're the offspring of dan luu please kill yourself. [22:42]

deedbot: << Qntra - Bitcoin Price Outlook: Magenta Possible In 2017 [22:46]
mircea_popescu: is magenta a large qty of price ? [22:48]
mircea_popescu: so according to the dude over at, bing has "20% of market share" according to some apparently public available sources. let's add to that : out of the ~0.9 %~ of trilema traffic that came from a search engine so far this year, 127,291 came from google and 2,666 came from bing. [22:52]
mircea_popescu: that... doesn't sound to me like 20%. more like 2%. [22:52]
mircea_popescu: but as the man points out - mostr of that reach comes from windows, ie and "strategic partners" a la [22:52]
mircea_popescu: which leads us to a new heuristic : the closer the search engine mix on your site is to bing having 20%, the more drool your "userbase" contributes to their immediate environment on a daily basis. [22:53]
BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> is magenta a large qty of price ? << It is a bright kinda fruity color of price [22:54]
mircea_popescu: gaiety prevails! [22:54]
BingoBoingo: 4srs [22:55]
mircea_popescu: << mildly interesting, mostly because unlike ~everyone else in the web game nick carver is literate. [23:09]
mircea_popescu: but it DOES turn out that the upper range of stack exchange hardware is ~50% more ram than phuctor. so... nyah. [23:09]
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: as i read the 'google' link, could think of only , unique kunstkammer specimen [23:15]

asciilifeform: hence posted. somewhere there live such people as the author!! what goes on in their heads? 'i am an acorn!!' [23:15]
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: didja notice for what he uses '~50% more ram than phuctor' ? [23:16]

asciilifeform: brain-melting. [23:24]
mircea_popescu: i'd kinda like to see all these "engineers" (who, as per some random douche working for microsoft, can not be found because most "relevancy engineers" as if that's a thing already work at google) would run phuctor on. [23:25]
mircea_popescu: they run in circles of their own design and then complain about the results. it's like a scene spitefully drawn by rochester. [23:27]

mircea_popescu: yes, your front end should run whatever, 18 bn terragigs or anything you can find [23:29]
mircea_popescu: but if your backend needs MULTIPLE 10g ports you're doing something wrong. [23:29]
asciilifeform: actually i worked once in certain place where we had dozens of 10g portz --- but there was a logical reason [23:30]
