BingoBoingo: I'm going to start shifting gears towards other parts of the cleanup while they sweat. [00:42]
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Since this collapse started and this Maxi fellow appeared... Based on the Monday sit down Maxi would be a walking talking tort generator in a common law jurisdiction. Here in this Roman law jurisdiction he seems to be actively generating breaches, non-performance, and faltas. He's been shooting from the hip and clearly been a detriment to his apparently absentee boss. [00:47]
mp_en_viaje: basically place got its careerwoman/retard, they tend to ruin things in exactly this manner. [00:47]
BingoBoingo: By contrast Based on the Monday sit down, if Oscar was empowered to act as a telecom manager in the way his title suggests... Maybe the week could have played out differently. Then again if I had a magic clicker that reset time back five minutes every time I clacked it, I may have never made it past age 5 or 13 much less 30 due to juvenile min-max attempts. But hypotheticals are hypotheticals. [00:48]
mp_en_viaje: inflexible self-righeous stupidty or however you'd call it [00:48]
mp_en_viaje: precious cuntlet-ism [00:48]
BingoBoingo: The remaining months of the contract, if they'd performed would have grossed for them maybe enough for them to get an ancient VW "Kombi" in the local automotive market that may or may not run. Maxi's "we want to work in an amicable way to finish this contract" sounds a lot like they want to say "please pay us to term even though we have become non-performant" while at the same time betraying the lack of balls and/or justification for [00:48]
BingoBoingo: them to be paid. [00:48]
mp_en_viaje: BingoBoingo, nah, it reads like "legal told us we'll prolly end up paying through the nose and we told them we know better an' now gonna prove it! PEOPLE DO ANYTHING WE TELL THEM TO!!!" [00:49]
BingoBoingo: Maybe I'm projecting too much from having seen his face go pale, but... my Maxi simulator with its admitedly small data set... it reads hedging and fear. [00:51]
mp_en_viaje: exactly. [00:51]
BingoBoingo: At some point earlier I did name drop Doctors Tristan Narvaja and Eduardo Acevedo Maturana as the authors of some good prose. The local civil code is the first guy's work. Local commercial code a collaboration, but mostly the second guy. [00:53]
BingoBoingo: I suspect they do not have a legal department at their present staffing level. [00:56]
BingoBoingo: They almost certainly depend on outside counsel. [00:56]
BingoBoingo: I've been sent uniformative graphs that list IPs suggesting that whatever happened to the network, it didn't happen to my portion of Latecho's range alone per addresses printed on the graphics they sent. Here in the dark, hypotheses were made, but no useful information was ever delivered. [01:08]
asciilifeform: !!deed [02:47]
deedbot: accepted: 1 [02:48]
asciilifeform: ^ mainly for diana_coman . physically tested on a 'e350' amd, excavated for the occasion. req'd 0 changes to kernel config !! [02:48]
asciilifeform: if diana_coman et al ask , i'ma make a 1-stick mechanized installer for this . presently is hand-cranked recipe . [02:59]
* asciilifeform to bed. [02:59]
lobbes: in other news, I have resurrected mah blog. Now with new name: ( [05:35]
lobbes: ("blog.lobbesblog" was indeed clunky so I figured I'd take this opportunity to rebrand) [05:35]
lobbes: likewise, I've got a RedirectMatch set up that is pointing all old blog.lobbesblog links to the new url (assuming I don't change my permalink structure). Everything seems to be functional (server-side select, footnotes) except for the archives dropdown, for whatever reason. Not very pertinent though, so I'll worry about that later. [05:35]
lobbes: spyked: speaking of, would you be able to update feedbot for new feed? [05:36]
diana_coman: asciilifeform: can happily report success on the very same amd fx ! [07:45]
diana_coman: so at least one amd successfully en-dulapped [07:45]
spyked: lobbes, all done! new feed looks in order from this side, lemme know if you notice anything wrong [08:03]
diana_coman: ah, krankendenken got switched in place in private subscribes too, yee thank you spyked. [08:09]
mp_en_viaje: asciilifeform, your tireless effort to help bridge minigame over is indeed quite touching. [08:16]
diana_coman: asciilifeform: python version on dulap is 3.5.4 though or what happened here?! [08:43]
diana_coman: fwiw: eselect python list shows 3.5 in use and indeed a 2.7 as fallback. [08:49]
feedbot: << Trilema -- Why the females of any sexuate species are necessarily going to be lazy, stupid and annoying. [09:48]
asciilifeform: mp_en_viaje: in evil-saboteur-craftsman guild, we have this custom. not done yet tho, apparently even this recipe contains mistake. currently vivisecting. [11:43]
mp_en_viaje: for some reason the detergent here smells like bubblegum, i smell like i've spent yesterday evening knee deep in thirteen year old and trying to re-collect all my shit strewn all over the place is like looking for car playing card things [11:47]
mp_en_viaje: asciilifeform, custom nothing, it's on the list of your very personal peculiarities, if it ever was a custom it went out with the divine right of kings [11:47]
mp_en_viaje: even as we speak the dumb cunts over at uruguay are "trying to resolve amiably" through the age old process of "we fuck shit up and you agree with us it's okay" [11:48]
asciilifeform: well mp_en_viaje works on bringin' back kings, i'ma meanwhile this. brb, sawing apart testbed. [11:48]
mp_en_viaje: aite, ima bbl. [11:54]
* asciilifeform finally fixed that gentoo, and while it uploads to snail box... [13:56]
asciilifeform: mp_en_viaje: aside from 'help diana_coman get smg despite isp lost at sea' in general , not being a latech, asciilifeform wants to make proper 'walls', rather than ' asciilifeform holds up the wall ' walls. in the spirit of 'publish fg schems' etc. [13:58]
asciilifeform: cuz 'builder holds up walls' is retarded. [13:58]
asciilifeform: e.g. the logger, already transitioned from 'hold-up wall' to 'wall', ideally erry useful product similar. [14:00]
asciilifeform: update re that gentoo : appears to meet req will deed updated recipe after item fully put through paces on diana_coman's side . [16:18]
asciilifeform: ( full thrd in #o , for anyone else requiring this item tho iirc no one but diana_coman & asciilifeform used ) [16:19]
lobbes: ty spyked [16:23]
hanbot_abroad: good evening, you chaps. [19:59]
hanbot_abroad: BingoBoingo did y'all manage some sort of UY1 interim access scheme? can i ssh thar now/sometime soon? [20:00]
* hanbot_abroad is gravely behind on logs, having been wringing germany out in the bathtub to see if a drop of sanity is left here somewhere. [20:02]
diana_coman: hanbot_abroad: heh, how many drops came out of ze germans? [20:11]
hanbot_abroad: ein: nur fur brezeln. / [20:14]
hanbot_abroad: it's like...deutschentina over here. [20:15]
diana_coman: ahahah, that's hard to quite picture a deutch-latino mixture [20:17]
hanbot_abroad: you know? and yet, overtolerance and complacency end up lookin' the same anywhere, like a semi-opaque film. [20:20]
diana_coman: hmm, I can see how that can end up the same actually, yes the absence is the same after all, regardless of path to it and even of surrounding artefacts I suppose. [20:24]
hanbot_abroad: yeah. the surrounding artefacts are still there! just...kinda sadly muffled from beneath the surface, unable to be relevant in the context of the overpopulated stupidities that surround them. [20:28]
BingoBoingo: hanbot_abroad: I'm about to dive into the CentOS anybox again now that I've sourced a bunch of inexpensive diamond grind/cut bits and have them in hand. [20:42]
hanbot_abroad: cool [20:44]
BingoBoingo: In erred in interpreting as leading to some other arrangement being preferable [20:46]
ossabot: Logged on 2019-10-10 11:32:38 mp_en_viaje: BingoBoingo, aite. ill cover w/e you paid, lump it with the drive incinerations and w/e else such odds and ends. [20:46]
BingoBoingo: But apparently there's isn't much left of the world to be had. [20:47]
diana_coman: BingoBoingo: sadly that doesn't seem to be going anywhere indeed, the crowncloud guy lingers in #o but doesn't answer any q so it probably won't come to anything. [20:52]
mp_en_viaje: meanwhile in brazil, [21:08]
mp_en_viaje: whereas in romania, [21:12]
feedbot: << Trilema -- Sadly Frankfurt's fucked. [21:32]
mp_en_viaje: makes me think of sadly enough [22:33]
diana_coman: mp_en_viaje production server & db successfully running on my local test-setup so that part at least seems all right tomorrow I'll look at the dev server too. [23:30]
diana_coman: all those installation notes from past times came in extremely handy indeed a few hurdles existed, quite as expected with respect to finding again various precise versions of stuff so from now on I'll have to backup *that* too. [23:33]
