mircea_popescu: dude srsly, ban evasion ? [07:27]
shinohai: wups [07:30]
mircea_popescu: schmuck will actually take the time to boot off a different interface, will however NOT take the time to address why he got banned in the first place. [07:32]
mircea_popescu: that's what i like about idiots, that they're determinedly idiotic. rarely you run into amateurs, it's generally pros all the way. [07:32]
shinohai: lolz [07:32]
mircea_popescu: argentina, too. [07:34]
shinohai: Ghehehe, Google "Hanno Bock" and is still in top 5 results :) [07:53]
mircea_popescu: sure meanwhile consider this : the article the fetlife bot keeps linking to the fetlife tards ISNT in the top 20 of the month. [07:53]
mircea_popescu: ie, people don't read anything anyway. [07:53]
mircea_popescu: the sum total of "internet users" from the "informatrion superhighway" who sat down at any point since 2016 going "hmm... i wonder what my opinion of this hanno bock character should be. let's do some research..." is, rounded to the closest integer, zero. [07:56]
shinohai: I don't think people do any actual research anymore tbh. [08:01]
mircea_popescu: and it shows google has become, steadily but acceleratingly, worthless for research. i pointed this out, but the sum total of pantsuit complaints, summed again to the closest integer, is also zero. [08:02]
* shinohai always rather enjoyed it, sort of a treasure hunt of facts if you will. [08:02]
mircea_popescu: you'd think someone'd notice if a tool they actually used went away. [08:02]
mircea_popescu: but... they didn't use it, and it doesn't work anymore, and they're quite happy together. [08:02]

deedbot: ag3nt_zer0 voiced for 30 minutes. [18:19]
ag3nt_zer0: hello BingoBoingo and Trilema [18:33]
BingoBoingo: Hello, sup? [18:33]
ag3nt_zer0: how goes it? just came across the unsettling news... [18:34]
ag3nt_zer0: i'm not hip to the details. is it still desirable to get trb nodes up? [18:35]
trinque: mircea_popescu: oughta be able to get that out this weekend. [18:35]
trinque: ag3nt_zer0: what kind of question is that? [18:38]
BingoBoingo: ag3nt_zer0: What troubling news? TRB still exists, and management of the ISP development in a transition process [18:38]
ag3nt_zer0: encountering this problem here installing packages required for GNUGPG ubuntu install. telling me i need for instance libgcrypt to build this program, when libgcrypt was the first one i configured - perhaps I was supposed to tell it where to configure? sorry no pastebin i am on another computer here... [18:38]
trinque: dude, no more "this is stuff they talk about" word salad [18:39]
trinque: did you have a trb question, a gpg question, indigestion, what [18:39]
shinohai: ag3nt_zer0: best bet is to simply nuke the Ubuntu gpg and build from sauce. [18:42]
ag3nt_zer0: trinque: hi. they were connected. if trb nodes are still being desired, i am trying to set one up. i am trying to install GNUGPG on the linux machine so i can verify trb sigs. and i keep getting this problem described above [18:42]
trinque: what is this "still being desired"? do you not follow the logs? [18:42]
shinohai: (Likely you have gpg2 which will not function correctly) [18:43]
ag3nt_zer0: shinohai: trying to build from scratch here [18:44]
ag3nt_zer0: shinohai: 2.2.4 [18:44]
shinohai: ^ [18:44]
shinohai: Will not work, try gpg 1.4.10 [18:44]
* trinque has other things to do, but consider. used to beat people for not doing their six months of logs reading. [18:45]
ag3nt_zer0: ok [18:45]
trinque: ag3nt_zer0: you've been coming by for how long, and what have you produced? [18:45]
trinque: you know how to search. these threads probably number in the hundreds by now. [18:46]
mod6: ag3nt_zer0: shinohai has it. no gpg2. [18:46]
mod6: let us know how it goes after you get 1.4.x [18:46]
mircea_popescu: a great. [18:50]
mircea_popescu: ag3nt_zer0 you keep doing this number whereby you drop by now and again to expose us to your magnificently solipsist persona. [18:51]
mircea_popescu: we don't give a shit about your persona. for one thing it's not even remotely acceptable, let alone cool. [18:51]
mircea_popescu: either fix yourself to fit in or else stop bothering to come by, because the next time you do one of these ima just block you. [18:51]
* mircea_popescu is getting intolerant of the whole punkmanist/indiancandy style "o hey, maybe they forgot?!" [18:52]
BingoBoingo: It'll prolly be a while till the USD downmarch shakes out the whole "remember we showed up once X years ago" crowd. [18:55]
mircea_popescu: no but i mean the fucking lameness of it. dood's got a "well rounded internet experience", he's got a mortgage and a boring wife and a boring job and a hp he bought at the store, and he "logs in" for a coupla hours four times a week or w/e. every nine weeks and a half we pop up again in the rotation, he's done 4chan, reddit, facebook, whatever, "i wonder what THOSE zany kids are up to these days". [19:15]
mircea_popescu: hurr durr, if the soccer mom / couch dad could possibly do this irl, they'd totally teleport various places while seated in their livingroom couch. [19:15]
shinohai: Hey .... I got an hp xD [19:16]
mircea_popescu: surfer beach, you know, miles of perfect ocean, some dudes hanging around, *ping* there's us consumertard in his house pants, chips crumbs in his lap, "o hey dudes, how's the surf ? hurr durr" half hour later, *ping* he's disappeared, with the firm notion that he "participated" in "surfer culture" [19:16]
mircea_popescu: for a coupla hours five times a year, such participation as'd befit the bad name his culture got. [19:17]
mircea_popescu: shinohai i got a hp laptop recently too, say, but desktops really should be assembled from parts. [19:18]
shinohai: I agree. my trb node runs on very old compaq which is actually far superior. I played Eulora on it when I first started (using ssh -X !) because the keyboard is long borked. [19:19]
BingoBoingo: Ah, that. Still quite a few of the 5 hour a year crowd too. [19:21]
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes hey, does fetlife want to hire you too, or did they taylor the pop-up ? [19:21]
ben_vulpes: hah! [19:21]
ben_vulpes: i've not been on fetlife in some time so i couldn't say [19:22]
mircea_popescu: well so log and see if they're trying to hire you too [19:22]
BingoBoingo: Hey, it worked out so well for OKC [19:23]
mircea_popescu: lol [19:24]
ben_vulpes: inb4 mircea_popescu has bought fetlife ads that SPECTRE with javascript [19:24]
mircea_popescu: why, you think the herd'd be worth it ? [19:24]
* mircea_popescu seriously doubts this. [19:24]
ben_vulpes: teh caretaking team purplebanner? [19:26]
mircea_popescu: yeah [19:27]
ben_vulpes: they want to hire someone kink friendly if you can imagine that [19:27]
mircea_popescu: heh [19:27]
ben_vulpes: lol that's right this site is garbage [19:28]
ben_vulpes: god damn the whole internet is garbage. last night i was idly looking into long-term synovial fluid health (surprise: webmd is useless and all that google will return results for i wonder why) and found several webshites that while scrolling would arbitrarily jump the page an inch or so at specific points the reasoning for which i could not determine [19:30]
mircea_popescu: not a particularly well understood topic in any case. [19:30]
mircea_popescu: but yes, things went downhill from the 80s when chet diagnosed her rare eye condition / located specialist via gopher to today. [19:31]
ben_vulpes: there was also an ad for some kind of novel pharmacofinelyspunhydrocarbon for the sexually-active-but-wanting-to-not-catch-teh-HIV (which, excuse me darling, why are they advertising us aidsmeds on the craplet) that was 30% vertical space for ad and 70% vertical space dedicated to a slow-scroll of finetext with i shit thee not buttons that had triggerable down and up states but *did not affect the scrolling* [19:33]
ben_vulpes: and ofc a non-draggable scroll bar [19:33]
mircea_popescu: sounds like a quarter million well spent [19:34]
ben_vulpes: << oblig from when a million meant something [19:35]
mod6: Evenin' [20:21]
ben_vulpes: noches, mod6 [20:21]

mod6: Good Gentlemen. How's everything going today? [20:31]
shinohai: Not bad here mod6 .... home from salt mines? [20:35]
mod6: ya [20:38]
mod6: I had a guy tell me with a straight face, "I only write performant code." [20:38]
mod6: Same guy also told me, "Yeah, there are some performance problems... but we're gonna switch to java 8, so that should take care of it." [20:39]
mod6: mmmhmm [20:39]
mod6: java 8, fixes your shit, fucks your wife, pays your bills, disciplines your kids. all part of the thing dontchaknow. [20:40]
shinohai: java .... oh boy [20:42]
* shinohai pages freakyfractal [20:42]
shinohai: Poor guy is a java developer :/ [20:42]
mod6: im gonna give this shit up, go back to being a lumberjack. [20:43]
shinohai: lol [20:43]
mircea_popescu: i guess we're lucky to have him, huh [20:43]
mod6: hehehe. it's been a steady march into perdition in the salt mines the last week or so. [20:44]
mod6: some days though, i really do miss running the chainsaw and the smell - the trees, the gasoline [20:46]
mod6: fresh air. [20:46]
mod6: Did I ever tell you guys about doing tree work down in Arizona? [20:47]
mircea_popescu: dun think so [20:47]
mod6: I needed some cash in like 2008 and was like, "alright, lemme get a saw and do some slash & burn for cash...". Was thinking, "Oh yeah, eazy-money, here we go!" [20:48]
mircea_popescu: ahaha what [20:48]
mod6: Umm no. Those mesquite trees and palo verde trees have NASTY barbs on them. After cutting down 1 mesquite tree it looked like I got into a fight with a wolverine. [20:49]
shinohai: Did you have a Big blue Ox too? [20:50]
mod6: Shit is like razor wire or something. And what's worse, is they're a sort of locust style tree -- and when they have leaves on 'em shit sticks together like velcro. [20:50]
mod6: Gave that shit up in a hurry. [20:51]
mod6: Not like the trees up in MN. [20:51]
mircea_popescu: sounda about right [20:51]
asciilifeform: ohai mircea_popescu et al [20:51]

mircea_popescu: the chess clock & corkboard you're using to schedule&timekeep [20:53]

mircea_popescu: i imagined. [20:54]
* asciilifeform eaten the quite compact l0gz [20:55]
mod6: Wasn't actually too much later I was walkin down the street in Tucson thinking... "I wonder when someone is going to make a currency out of cryptography like Schneier was talking about in Applied Crypto.." [20:58]
mod6: Probably about that same time infact. [20:59]
mircea_popescu: ha! [21:00]
mod6: I had remembered reading about that in there, probably in like 99 or 2000. This was eight years later. I knew though, once it was a thing, then I had to get involved. [21:00]
mod6: The Bernak had just bailed out the banks. I remember some Time Magazine cover "The Hero." Or some such nonsense, scary stuff. [21:01]
mod6: Ah, that was a different cover. I guess in 2009 it was "Person of the Year". Seriously. Person. Of. The. Year. [21:03]
mod6: Anyway, sorry for that trip down amnesia lane. [21:03]
mircea_popescu: i think that was 2009 [21:06]
mircea_popescu: tlp also threw up chunks [21:06]
mod6: <+shinohai> Did you have a Big blue Ox too? << would have been better to ride an ox than fight through all the Tucson stoplights. But, no, sadly. [21:06]
mircea_popescu: you recall, they tried to do online poll, 4chan owned it, made m00t person of the year [21:06]
mircea_popescu: asshats failed to admit they failed, declared "you" winner. [21:06]
mircea_popescu: because pantsuit can't breathe if not pantsuiting. [21:06]
mod6: haha, indeed. I seem to remember reading something way later about m00t. maybe someone mentioned it here. [21:08]
mod6: ah yeah [21:08]
