BingoBoingo: WTF: "“Although you have a doctorate, I doubt that you teach. Although you have a doctorate, I doubt that you do research,” Schlesinger wrote to a disabilities services specialist at the university, announcing his departure last week. He accused the staff member of writing him “coercive emails” about the accommodation and copied his entire class on climate and global change on the exchange." [05:50]
BingoBoingo: When's the fun? [05:51]
BingoBoingo: Ah, here it is from Mr. Climatarast: "While he gave all of his students hard copies of his lecture notes before class, he said, he didn’t provide electronic copies because “based on my experience of providing all my students my lecture slides after each lecture for most if not all of the 16 times I have taught this course, I knew that one-third of my class would cease coming to my lectures if I provided them my lecture slides electro [05:54]
BingoBoingo: nically. And their ceasing to attend my lectures would lower their course grades.”" [05:54]

asciilifeform: lol! [16:48]
mircea_popescu: << illustrative. [16:50]
asciilifeform: oh speaking of this, asciilifeform's pet had response to mircea_popescu's 'o sopirla' : 'there is also an inverse sopirla, where an item has the outward pretense of disobedience, but in fact reaffirms pantsuit orthodoxy. did the romanians have a name for it as well?' [16:51]
mircea_popescu: no, because the first romanian to ever notice this exists was called mircea popescu. [16:52]
asciilifeform: lolk [16:53]
mircea_popescu: that's the advantage of living in a small pond, the exact opposite of the problem of math. [16:53]
* asciilifeform can picture [16:53]
mircea_popescu: i suppose you could stretch "hypocrisy" to try and fit it, if you must. [16:53]
asciilifeform: nah unspecific [16:54]
mircea_popescu: well you could also call it graham, or yarvin, or somesuch. [16:54]
asciilifeform: sopirla is very delectably specific [16:54]
asciilifeform: lol [16:54]
mircea_popescu: but the phenomenon of "think outside the box! in the sense of out of that one and into this one!" is very widespread, which is why such shock and awe as in eg [16:55]
mircea_popescu: and the problem is also a LOT bigger than commonly understood. a scientist's ability to produce anything meaningful is forever trapped in the superifical tension of a very narrow menisc : between him being caught in a certain box ("paradigm") but not in the other one ("orthodoxy"). [16:56]

mircea_popescu: nature-mag science. [16:57]
asciilifeform: it's a fundamental tension in ~everything~, because it is in fact an information-theoretical problem and not at all domain-specific [16:57]
mircea_popescu: there is no such thing as information theoretical, seeing how information has an actual thermodynamic backing. [16:57]
mircea_popescu: it is purely theoretical! as in theoretical physics theoretical. [16:58]
asciilifeform: yayagodcreatedintegersandallelseisworkofman etc [16:58]
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform "if one built a cylinder with independent pistons and a partition, and put a single molecule in, and knew on which side it found itself, that one could extract entropy work out of the assemblage!" [16:58]

mircea_popescu: which is what i mean by "entropy work". $value-of-entropy work. [17:02]
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: 'szilard's engine' believe or not has a more ancient ru peasant existence!111 in the proverb 'Знал бы где упасть -- соломки бы подстелил' . [17:06]
mircea_popescu: lol! [17:06]
asciilifeform: aaha. [17:06]
mircea_popescu: yes, it's not exactly novel. [17:06]
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform [17:10]
asciilifeform: got it! [17:11]
mircea_popescu: anyway, to get back to the boxen : the correct solution to "how much box" is, on the basis of both practical observation (every time tought, either as science, or as art, or as political work worked to date not to mention coral growth and everything else) as well as theoretical understanding is to provide SPURS instead of walls. [17:15]
mircea_popescu: because that's how you resolve the "i can't tell if this young'un is galois or insane" in practice of elder, slower, heavier gents : "follow ONE fucking spur to allow me to organize your nonsense, god damn it!" [17:15]
mircea_popescu: then if you really care about 2d, 3d, nd effects we can... guess what... examine further orthogonal ones ?! wow! [17:16]

asciilifeform: and write on what? [19:40]
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Presumably african frog? [19:40]
kanzure: anyway the concern is that there's not enough pure silicon available to make enough flash memory for future projected demands of like 2^28 bits in ~20 years. [19:40]
asciilifeform: and so instead write with dna, a mol of which weighs approx what young elephant weighs ? [19:41]

asciilifeform: and precisely how are we to run out of si, the #1 abundant element in the planet's crust ?! [19:42]

kanzure: we currently are not processing beach sand for semiconductor wafers [19:42]
BingoBoingo: What sand the future processes is the future's problem [19:43]
asciilifeform: this 'pack the planet with bodies until everywhere looks like a crowded lift' thing ain't long for this world, kanzure [19:43]
asciilifeform: and certainly the 'and give each an ipnoje so he'll shuddup' ain't either. [19:43]
kanzure: these cat pics are important [19:43]
asciilifeform: y'know the meat device for displaying those is already built : there's 1 on my windowsill atm [19:44]
kanzure: but the nsa can't use that to capture and store all the packets.. [19:45]
asciilifeform: on 2nd thought 'nsa stores packets on dna' is just the right kind of starwars idiocy that oughta be encouraged. [19:45]

asciilifeform: they got meat production 5year plan, y'see [19:47]
kanzure: i typed 50 pages of notes (about 30k words) but i'm not sure it should be considered public [19:47]
mircea_popescu: there's not enough si, check that dumb shit out, only the most common material in crust. [19:47]
mircea_popescu: kanzure actually, it should be considered manure. [19:47]
asciilifeform: see that there living room ? it's to have 50 somalis in it by end of 5yplan. [19:47]
kanzure: not enough silicon of the type that is used [19:48]
mircea_popescu: i can promise you absolutely nobody will ever read it. in this sense "whether it's public" is not unlike rosie mcdowell wondering if her cunt's got privacy. [19:48]
asciilifeform: kanzure: i spilled the beans from a similar darpa conference that i attended, in the heart of the beast itself, few yrs back ( it's in the l0gz, spoiler : multilinear map homomorphic crypto is bunkum ) and still waiting for gasenwagen [19:48]

mircea_popescu: sort of like a self-preservation mechanism. [19:50]
asciilifeform: so far shows no symptoms of doing so, no [19:50]
BingoBoingo: So this "Sally Hemmings And The Widower" Fanfic/novel, I'm not finding anyway to work crabapple metaphor into unifying narrative [19:51]
asciilifeform: boneh is imho an interesting example of a man who thought that intellectual and political integrity were severable [19:51]

mircea_popescu: asciilifeform that's meaningless. [19:55]

BingoBoingo: Know is a prejudicial un-solarshaded term [19:55]
kanzure: just last week i was in SF because [19:56]
asciilifeform: aha! [19:56]
asciilifeform: knows. [19:56]
kanzure: i wasn't aware that i had to report my whereabouts to you guys but whatever [19:56]
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform he was there in the sense wino was in bar. it takes a very special sort of someone to imagine they were there because they went to listen to the band. [19:56]
asciilifeform: kanzure: really nobody gives half a shit [19:56]
asciilifeform: i presume that d00d knows because he is not unintelligent. [19:57]
kanzure: you don't give me giga shits? [19:57]
mircea_popescu: you understand this is how the shit works, yes ? there's the bars, and there's the bar flies, and there's the indie bands. the relationship between all three is entirely coincidental. [19:57]
mircea_popescu: people-who-go-to-conferences, ie bar flies, will at any point be in a conference hall. this has no relation to anything else. [19:57]
asciilifeform: now i have nfi actually re kanzure . but boneh knows very well what he's doing. [19:57]
kanzure: [19:58]
mircea_popescu: people-who-talk-at-conferences, ie indie bands, will at any point also be in a conference hall. [19:58]
asciilifeform: his nuremberg defense will be challenging. [19:58]
mircea_popescu: the whole thing is driven by the bar. [19:58]
asciilifeform: so kanzure wouldja humour me, and say to me why i cannot compress a 1000TB backup into a 1024byte sig [19:58]
mircea_popescu: ie, if it has seats and a stage there's going to be some kind of fly land on each. [19:58]
asciilifeform: and get it out again [19:58]
kanzure: anyway thanks for the encouragement about public releasing (d|i)arpa notes [19:58]
kanzure: why are you doing compression [19:59]
asciilifeform: to show how ludicrous the claim of 'aggregate N signatures into fixed space' [19:59]
kanzure: i thought this was about authorization [19:59]
asciilifeform: it is about informationtheoretical impossibility of the claim, period [19:59]
asciilifeform: and the inadmissibility of lossy operations in crypto [19:59]
mircea_popescu: you're so far from any kind of shared priors, there's absolutely no possible result here. [20:00]
asciilifeform: and the people who made devil's bargain with usg, supposed 'academics' who lie for money like the lowest crack whore does not. [20:00]
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i do regularly try to find some shared prior. [20:01]
mircea_popescu: i would say the matter's come to its natural conclusion : dude's came up with any of the usual explanation of why i'm rich and he's poor and will continue with his idiotic tack indefinitely. [20:01]
asciilifeform: hm i must've missed this thread [20:01]
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform it is strictly impossible to have. he is dedicated to being stupid, and i suspect by now too old for any change to be even arguably +ev. [20:01]
mircea_popescu: he'll die dumb. [20:01]

asciilifeform: but my telepsychiatron is broken, so can't say. [20:03]
kanzure: can you give me proof of poor here. wat? [20:03]
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i suspect that distinction is not meaningful. pregnant woman is neither whore nor victim. she's pregnant. [20:03]
asciilifeform: kanzure: approx. that you might have $B but you can't send it to isis. [20:03]
asciilifeform: and so it ain't actually yours. [20:04]
asciilifeform: but not limited to this. [20:04]
kanzure: so i should make my own isis [20:04]
mircea_popescu: you should shut up of your own steam, really. [20:04]
asciilifeform: step 1 is to not surround self with provocateurs, e.g. boneh & co. [20:04]
asciilifeform: or will last approx as long as the new york deathray d00d. [20:05]
BingoBoingo: !~step 1 [20:06]
jhvh1: BingoBoingo: Error: "step" is not a valid command. [20:06]
BingoBoingo: !~step1 [20:06]
asciilifeform: step 2 is to omfg get a civilized chan log for yerself, kanzure , the .txt full of joinpart spamola is srsly sad [20:06]
jhvh1: 1. We admitted we were powerless over alcohol—that our lives had become unmanageable. [20:06]
BingoBoingo: !~step2 [20:06]
jhvh1: 2. Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity. [20:06]
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: you gotta wait for the man to ~take~ to drink before he can quit it!11 [20:07]
BingoBoingo: Most importantly [20:07]
BingoBoingo: !~step4 [20:07]
jhvh1: 4. Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves. [20:07]
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: lol, the drink is a symptom [20:07]
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo the conceptualization of one being an utter fucktard can't happen in the comfortably idiotic. [20:07]
mircea_popescu: alcohol is a muchly preferable addiction to usgtronic stupidity in that it actually DOES something. [20:07]
asciilifeform: step 3 may be to stop doing dancytricks for darpa/iarpa/fucktarpa for pocket change, esp. if yer already 'rich' [20:07]
BingoBoingo: !~step3 [20:07]
jhvh1: 3. Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood Him. [20:07]
mircea_popescu: but being dumb in the female way, especially if not biologically female, can not possibly have any physical effects. [20:08]
BingoBoingo: ^ AHA alf [20:08]
asciilifeform: i got out of that racket an' have 0 regrets [20:08]
mircea_popescu: so it can also keep teh spirit captive ~forever. [20:08]
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: What if he grows fat. Gets tits and pubic fat mount over now tunnelcock? [20:08]
asciilifeform: kanzure: if yur gonna fellate for money, fellate goldmansachs directly, for 9 digits, instead of the tardocrats for 7 [20:08]
BingoBoingo: USGtardism does that [20:09]
mircea_popescu: still not fertile. [20:09]
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: Fertile to Candida! [20:09]
mircea_popescu: heh. [20:09]

mircea_popescu: this is indistinguishable from being dead. [20:10]
BingoBoingo: ikr? [20:10]
mircea_popescu: anyway, the opportunity came and went, like these things do. [20:10]
BingoBoingo: Except for some reason it's selling darpa rotting yeast drive and utterancing [20:11]
BingoBoingo: Wait! [20:11]
asciilifeform: phun phakt, even toilet at darpa needs key card [20:11]
BingoBoingo: Which yeast for drive.... [20:11]
asciilifeform: place is set up like hollywood gulag of the fyootoor [20:11]
mircea_popescu: meanwhile the actual next generation, [20:12]
asciilifeform: oh did i mention the doorman has form for you to fill in triplicate ? [20:12]
asciilifeform: afaik never even in original su, this degree of idiocy [20:12]
shinohai: oh my [20:12]
BingoBoingo: OMG kanzure IS an instrument of candidal intertrigo [20:12]
BingoBoingo: Now this is novel [20:12]
BingoBoingo: Or prolly not [20:12]
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform vaguely funny anecdote re this : someone introduced woman to me in ba. clearly pro cocksucker who's seen better days had retired into a marriage but chosen ineptly, was now peniless trying to make ends meet out of realestate agenting. [20:12]
BingoBoingo: anyways brb [20:12]
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: nah d00d dun work with darpa, he works with iarpa, darpa is stolid old pentagon, iarpa - nsa [20:13]
mircea_popescu: she invites us to this art whatever the fuck, in a loft downtown. we actually go! and there, whole festival of locking doors ands where's your id and whatnot. [20:13]
mod6: mircea_popescu: woah, the next generation is hawt. [20:13]
mircea_popescu: i told the girly where to shove it, and she had to "ask" and whatnot. just as he was coming back witrh the "oh, no id needed anymore" updated policy i was getting the doorman to open the fucking door before i crack it open with his face. [20:13]
mircea_popescu: moral of the story being, women left to rot in their own juice come up withe the same inept bullshit at darpa or at argentina. [20:14]
BingoBoingo: <asciilifeform> BingoBoingo: nah d00d dun work with darpa, he works with iarpa, darpa is stolid old pentagon, iarpa - nsa << This does not exonerate the yeast's herald from being a herald of his yeastly superiors [20:14]
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: as an ex-sufferer of 'hm, they're giving out money for dancytrick, how do i print 100MB using liquid shit on wattman paper' -- i grasp the fundamentals [20:15]
mircea_popescu: that's you know, how it's going to be communicated to me that we're in an ~~~exclusive~~~ millieu of great value and vehement importance! by complicated locking mechanisms. cuz i [20:15]
mircea_popescu: i'm a dumb cunt just like them and imagine the value of my precious kitty is related to how many textile layers i keep it under. [20:15]
asciilifeform: but i cannot cure kanzure . if wealth ( and by all indications, d00d is 'dependently' wealthy at the least ) did not cure -- who can cure. [20:16]
mircea_popescu: you can't unfix a fixed bitch. [20:16]
asciilifeform: i have nfi with what one oughta have been whaked in the head, and with howmuch force, to do idjit humantricks for nsa for paltry sixfigses when no longer having to work to eat [20:17]
mircea_popescu: [20:18]
a111: Logged on 2017-09-15 23:50 mircea_popescu: sort of like a self-preservation mechanism. [20:18]

asciilifeform: but for the well-fed i cannot see what possible excuse. [20:19]
mircea_popescu: there's many classes of stupid, a well populous one (at least in the us) is "intelligent who are affraid of it". [20:19]
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i've heard the hungry but sane before, they don't sound like that at all. [20:19]
asciilifeform: d00d ain't hungry, you can take that to the bank. [20:19]
mircea_popescu: anyway, there's no room for pity or such bs here. dood had his moment to epiphanize, missed out on it, what more can be said, or need be said. [20:19]
asciilifeform: i dun think he has to pinch pennies for them microscopes. [20:20]
mircea_popescu: you mean them microscopes that don't exist. [20:20]
asciilifeform: notmuch. i'ma bbl, gotta paint some dna. [20:20]
kanzure: why would i have you vet my epipenises? [20:21]
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform can i lean on you the other way nao plox ? [20:22]

shinohai: Thankfully, no resets. [20:39]
mod6: click? [20:40]
mod6: like duration of crafting? [20:41]
mircea_popescu: mod6 he's talking eulora [20:41]
shinohai: Yup, sorry bout that [20:41]
shinohai: (Wrong chan!) [20:41]
mod6: np at all. [20:41]
mod6: fwiw, i logged in day or so ago to check and ensure at least on the surface, all was still well. [20:42]
mircea_popescu: was it ? [20:42]
mircea_popescu: you should have pretty high q stuff now, since the float. [20:42]
mod6: i was able to log in, np, and my ecu had 10x'd [20:42]
mircea_popescu: all oldsters do. [20:42]
mod6: i made mention in #eulora, but was brief. [20:43]
mircea_popescu: aha cool. [20:43]
mod6: lol, and apparently non-specific. [20:43]
shinohai: I haven't seen danielpbarron since the reset, hope he's ok. I still have his items. [20:43]
mod6: (15:24) < mod6> looking good! << my apologies. [20:43]

mircea_popescu: ha! [20:48]

mircea_popescu: lol! [20:51]
mod6: friends kid. [20:52]
mircea_popescu: anyway, next step is to actually declare a server api, with much better hooks for content delivery etc. should grow nicely once all that's in. [20:53]

mircea_popescu: PeterL makes perfect sense. [22:45]
mircea_popescu: the problem with the spec as-is is that you can't actually have a message of the same bitsize as the key, but must make it -1 this appears to be mentioned exactly NOWHERE, which is moderately concerning. [22:49]
PeterL: and do you make it -1 bit or -1 byte? [22:49]
mircea_popescu: bit should suffice but might not be practically useful. [22:50]
mircea_popescu: incidentally, should prolly take a look at also [22:53]
PeterL: what is this, mircea_popescu linking a pdf?!? the scandal! [22:55]
mircea_popescu: (tldr : here's proof oaep is insecure original "proofs" wrong rsa-oaep is not insecure by accident, due to rsa properteis here's oaep+ fixed by me to actually work) [22:55]
mircea_popescu: PeterL i also sent an email earlier this week. the world's ending. [22:55]
PeterL: by the way, I stuffed the keccak ada stuff (and, speaking of OAEP, here is one of those too) into since I don't have my own server up yet [22:57]
BingoBoingo: OMG Police adopting filthy hippy tactics nao: "They marched to the on-ramp of I-64 at Clark Street, but officers on bicycles formed a human chain to prevent them from shutting down highway traffic. The protesters left that area without any physical confrontations." [23:08]
PeterL: what pansy protesters [23:09]
BingoBoingo: PeterL: Well, that was earlier in the day when there was still sunlight [23:09]
PeterL: are they vampires, afraid of the light or something? [23:10]
BingoBoingo: Breakingest news is pantsuit Mayor's home vandalized [23:10]
BingoBoingo: PeterL: Yes they are afraid of the light. [23:11]
BingoBoingo: It's their taken version 'we r anon, no raep us back pls k thx bye' [23:14]
PeterL: With RSA-OAEP, one can encrypt messages whose bit-length is up to just a few hundred bits less than the number of bits in the RSA modulus, yielding a ciphertext whose size is the same as that of the RSA modulus. << It sounds like he is using a smaller amount of random bits than we are? [23:15]
PeterL: Why is it that papers written by one guy still insist on using the "We" form for all the things they do? [23:22]
BingoBoingo: Because fist ass unity takes two people [23:24]
BingoBoingo: And from there custom spreads [23:25]
