mircea_popescu: and i suppose the evident similarity between dirac delta and "whichever unnamed abstractions you support your estimation of string theory" is also striking to you ? [00:00]
mircea_popescu: (schwartz above is laurent schwartz, provided an elegant translation of the non-functional nature of dirac's delta by using distribution limits to model it) [00:01]
asciilifeform: the difference is also imho obvious [00:01]
mircea_popescu: what's it ? [00:01]
asciilifeform: ( the string orchestra not only dun give a flying fuck re parsimony, but quite the opposite , complexity cancer deliberately cultured, breeds grantolade for mediocrities ) [00:02]
mircea_popescu: but this is a political consideration. [00:02]
mircea_popescu: should be applied against people not against things. [00:02]
asciilifeform: there is no separability of the political. [00:02]
mircea_popescu: there is in this sense. if "alcohol" "leads people into sin", then those led into sin are to be hanged but alcohol not condemned. [00:03]
asciilifeform: i am not convinced of there being involvement of 'things' : strings have not even the reality anchor of phlogiston. [00:03]
asciilifeform: are ~= 'privilegism' [00:04]
mircea_popescu: they're abstract things [00:04]
asciilifeform: unanchored abstractions, like in schizo patient. [00:04]
mircea_popescu: but those are also still things. [00:04]
mircea_popescu: not concrete in any sense and not meaningful either, but still. [00:04]
asciilifeform: and unlike in schizo patient, crafted with clear political angle. [00:05]
mircea_popescu: "things that i can fuck", "things that i can understand", "things i can talk about". many kinds of things. [00:05]
asciilifeform: there is also 'things that, if loaded into a head, make it stupider' [00:06]
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform dirac's delta, aslo crafted with clear political angle : to exclude non-diracians from so-and-so set of benches. [00:06]
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i put it to you, that if such a thing should exist, the head is at fault not the thing. [00:06]
mircea_popescu: do also there exist "bad data" known by that fact that "if put into computer, break it" ? fix the fucking code. [00:07]
mircea_popescu: obscenity laws, banned books, political correctness, antivirus corps etc are all the sorry product of the contrary view. [00:07]
asciilifeform: the basic sin in strings is same as in microshit and elsewhere: rejection of parsimony [00:10]
asciilifeform: that way lies daemonology and nothing else. [00:10]
mircea_popescu: so you'll settle on "dirac's delta visibly parsimonious string theory not so visibly if at all" ? [00:10]
asciilifeform: aha [00:11]
mircea_popescu: makes sense. [00:11]
asciilifeform: at least was obvious attempt. at parsimony. [00:12]
mircea_popescu: i suppose this actually enacts a fundamental of "parsimony" in estimation of all ideal objects. [00:12]
mircea_popescu: "do it or else alf won't like it and mp won't defend you and what else is there for you." [00:12]
asciilifeform: 'do it or you ain't even thinking, but fermenting' [00:12]
mircea_popescu: that also. [00:13]
mircea_popescu: very literally true, too. the act of fermentation as a thermodynamic process is correctly modelled as an increase in entropy ie exactly "that way lies demonology" [00:13]
mircea_popescu: system becomes more complex over time at a steady rate based on temperature / gates' worthless money input. [00:14]
mircea_popescu: exaclty as per the above "ants doing mango pulp powered research" [00:14]
asciilifeform: they're crankin' out LPUs, wat [00:15]
asciilifeform: troo hardworkers, candidates for tenure. [00:15]
mircea_popescu: indisputably. [00:15]
mircea_popescu: in other lulz : each and everyone politician abscam put in jail (bout 30 or so) were... democrats. the party of corruption survived! [05:19]
deedbot: << Trilema - Prince of the City [05:29]
mircea_popescu: aand in yet more lulz : cancer incidence increased in us adolescents by a steady 0.5 - 0.6% per year, each year, since 1975. [05:43]
mircea_popescu: GOOD THING THEY STOPPED 2ND HAND SMOKING!!! [05:43]

mircea_popescu: and in other lulz : google spent a quarter billion dollars worth of its govt's printouts on "corporate diversity". the results are not exactly zero [12:41]
mircea_popescu: in the sense that apparently there's less black chix coding at google now than before. [12:41]
mircea_popescu: leaving aside lulz [12:41]
mircea_popescu: (tldr : nigger jew faggots at google conspired to hinder anyone not of nigger jew faggot political persuasions.) [12:42]
mircea_popescu: and in other lulz from elaine ou : "ripple", which apparently is an entity that scammed wall street "investors" out of 55mn "investment" managed to write "R3" which is a sort of nothing in particular an XRP option worth supposedly a billion (admitting ripple the fake coin is worth anything) and while they can't back out of it, there's legal wrangling lulz : [12:45]

asciilifeform: btw did i ever print the rated power consumption of a FUCKGOATS ? [13:44]
asciilifeform: it's 80mA @ 5v . [13:44]
asciilifeform: ( average, naturally ) [13:44]
asciilifeform: in practice, this means that an unpowered usb hub should be able to support 6 of'em without problems. [13:46]
mod6: that's what you use to test in parallel right? [13:48]
asciilifeform: mod6: i typically use powered hubs [13:48]
asciilifeform: one of the items i am currently working on is a fully-automatic FG tester [13:48]
asciilifeform: at the moment, the process is only semi-automatic. [13:48]
asciilifeform: linux kernel ( all the varieties i've tried ) seems to have a serious ( and wholly undocumented ) problem with > 7 serial devices . [13:53]
asciilifeform: transfer rate on 8th and above, slows to a kB/s or so [13:54]
asciilifeform: ( where the buffered bits go -- devil only knows ) [13:54]
mod6: <+asciilifeform> one of the items i am currently working on is a fully-automatic FG tester << ahh cool. [13:54]
mod6: <+asciilifeform> transfer rate on 8th and above, slows to a kB/s or so << ugh. [13:55]
asciilifeform: mod6: the interesting bit is the -- afaik -- total absence of public discussion. because -- evidently -- Only A Terrorist (tm)(r) would use 8+ serial devices on pc. [13:56]
mircea_popescu: who would you expect to use 8+, the usual appletard/tablethead/who exactly ? [14:11]
mircea_popescu: i expect more people complain of the chip color than of this. [14:11]
asciilifeform: appletard has problem even with 1 serialport [14:11]
mircea_popescu: so to him this seems heaven [14:12]
asciilifeform: ( iirc somebody here tried ) [14:12]
* mircea_popescu now trying guatemala's ron (colonial). [14:13]
mircea_popescu: tis exactly as i recall it from the mid 2000s. [14:13]
asciilifeform: the part i find interesting is that it is -- apparently -- impossible to use a current pc in the way, e.g., pdp11 was used - as box with two dozen + serial ttys hanging off [14:13]
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform pretty sure you could sit down a multi-usb hub unit in the card slot [14:14]
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: it dun work at rated speed [14:14]
asciilifeform: regardless of where you put the ports [14:14]
asciilifeform: kernel issue [14:14]
mircea_popescu: haven't trierd [14:15]
asciilifeform: i have a 9-port pcie card, same thing [14:15]
asciilifeform: iron serial ports apparently count towards the total [14:15]
asciilifeform: (not a usb-specific thing) [14:15]
mircea_popescu: tsk. [14:15]
asciilifeform: likely some idiocy in the interrupt handlers [14:16]
trinque: ^ wd [14:16]

mircea_popescu: at any rate, if anyone cares : centenario anejo 25 yo (costa rica) > diplomatico r. exclusiva (venezuela) > colonial artesanal (guatemala) > centenario run of the bar > flor de cana (nicaragua). [14:18]

mircea_popescu: lol soon eh ? [14:26]
asciilifeform: running crypto routines via browser is monumentally dumb idea [14:26]
cruciform: well, I'd like to get my BTC out of Armory ASAP [14:26]
asciilifeform: every time you visit a www pg, potentially you get something new. [14:26]
cruciform: gotcha, so how should one convert his entropy to BTC private keys? [14:27]
mircea_popescu: i imagine the idea with browser stuff is you just save the javascript. as close to "compile locally, fucktard" as the redditard generation can possibly get -- guaranteed success through a browser-compiler of approximately-integer language. [14:28]
shinohai: SoldierOfFortune: plox to fix your connection or get a bnc [14:48]

asciilifeform: 'Roche never commercialized this drug due to ethical & liability concerns. It would be useful in emergency room settings where physicians neede to communicate with intoxicated accident victims. But there was too much concern about it getting diverted to become a 'party drug.'' [16:08]
mircea_popescu: the whole "can't prosecute me for drunk driving, i popped a magic pill" angle was just too much to swallow [16:10]
asciilifeform: the 'gotta prosecute for impairment, regardless of whether from drink or not sleeping, rather than litmus' was evidently too much to puritanswallow [16:12]

mircea_popescu: let him move over to #hplusplus or wherever the fucktards gather to do nothing self-importantly. [19:31]
asciilifeform: that there's enemy fire [19:31]
mircea_popescu: stupidity is natural. [19:31]
asciilifeform: 'where were you in june of 41' (tm)(r) [19:32]
mircea_popescu: quite fuckign exactly. [19:34]
mircea_popescu: except, of course, this is more like a levy. "oh i know, i'll argue with mp about building levies in 2015, as if that's fucking permissible now, arguing with mp and then in 2016 and then whoops, the obvious natural occurence took us by total suprise!!11" [19:34]
asciilifeform: iirc in '15 the 'hosters are all shit for the same reason as miners, they are -ev to operate without scammitude, so change'em like condoms' school of thought was still strong. [19:39]
BingoBoingo: !~later tell mircea_popescu [19:39]
jhvh1: BingoBoingo: The operation succeeded. [19:39]
BingoBoingo: brb, sobertime [19:39]
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo [19:40]
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform twas nonsense then as now. [19:43]
mircea_popescu: (for the curious, teeny slut above is from which is part of a larger likbez on economics that i'm rather proud of) [19:48]
* asciilifeform honing his ro-fu, reads... [19:49]
asciilifeform: in other lulz, "GET /faq HTTP/1.1" 200 8124 "" [20:05]
mircea_popescu: dojos now ? [20:16]
mircea_popescu: they're never going to run out of other people's words to try and steal and sell, are they. [20:17]
mircea_popescu: fucking hot topic, "and THIS is a pirate" "no, it's not" "19.95" [20:17]
asciilifeform: pretty sure they've by nao stolen every single word in anglodictionary, up to 5 letters an' counting [20:20]
mod6: [20:22]
asciilifeform: lol! [20:22]
mircea_popescu: kek what is that in the background, rocket launchers ? [20:23]
asciilifeform: do we know who was this maker [20:23]
mircea_popescu: i vaguely recall tshirts being made at points [20:23]
mod6: no idea, it's been around for a while tho... [20:23]
mircea_popescu: tho tbh i'd prefer it modeled on tits. [20:23]
asciilifeform: apparently also [20:23]
deedbot: << trinque - FUCKGOATS tested [20:26]
asciilifeform: oh hey hey hey lbj!! [20:26]
mod6: i like the mpex shirt too hehe. but aha, tits would be sweet. [20:27]
mod6: MPEx = ( . Y . ) [20:27]
mod6: or something [20:27]
asciilifeform: btw ain't it riotously scandalous that the dieharder d00d never showed up here ? [20:28]
asciilifeform: i and iirc a few other folx -- wrote [20:28]
mod6: yeah, would have been proper. [20:29]
shinohai: !#s [20:29]
a111: 0 results for "", [20:29]
mircea_popescu: this "i'm more important than the world" is the easiest delusion. [20:30]
mircea_popescu: they're by their nature sweet, but this one's like truffles to the pigs. [20:30]
asciilifeform: trinque: updated FG www with link to your review. [20:32]
asciilifeform: this makes 3 . [20:32]
trinque: cheers [20:32]
mod6: nice trinque [20:34]
asciilifeform: i'm still waiting to hear of somebody other than myself, doing the yoke test [20:41]
asciilifeform: because -- unsurprise, i hope -- if yer FUCKGOATS were replaced with an identical-looking ftmeadegoats en route, it would pass (perhaps even 'prettier') the dh, ent, etc tests, as the original [20:42]
asciilifeform: even after being lethally boobytrapped. [20:42]
asciilifeform: another suggested experiment for FG owners is . [20:43]
a111: Logged on 2017-08-24 17:16 asciilifeform: btw you can make this right now by attaching 2 hg tilt switches to a fg , 1 on each end ( b/w the middle and the +v pins ) [20:43]
asciilifeform: ^ incidentally : if you can get hall-effect switches, these will work even better ( the important thing is for whatever switch to be 'bounce-less', contact-bouncing creates predictable, in theory, temporal patterns ) [20:47]
asciilifeform: ( back to yoke test -- it is somewhat tricky, you need ~very~ good cabling, and very short, for the clocks to sync properly ) [20:49]
asciilifeform: FG-II rng will prolly have 4 pins, 1 for shifter pulse, to make yoking ultra-easy at ~0 cost. [20:51]
asciilifeform: ANOTHER useful advice to every fg owner is to verify that the cpld shitstream in yer unit, is in fact == to the one asciilifeform signed. [20:54]
mod6: asciilifeform: so far, i've only gone to the extent of unplugging both RNG-TWs and ensuring that the SAD lamp does what it should. [20:54]
asciilifeform: i'd be surprised if anybody's, at this early point, isn't... but this is by far the cheapest and easiest method for enemy to tamper, and leaves 0 physical trace [20:54]
mircea_popescu: "Chi square distribution for 1048576000 samples is 217.95, and randomly would exceed this value 95.52 percent of the times." [20:55]
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: in the torture room , i get a pretty flat distrib of chisqr values [20:56]
mircea_popescu: me2 [20:56]
mod6: that's in the 'suspect' range no? [20:56]
mircea_popescu: wtf is this [20:56]
mircea_popescu: Monte Carlo value for Pi is 3.141491330 (error 0.00 percent). [20:56]
asciilifeform: i see 5 ... 95 range approx. flatly. [20:56]
mircea_popescu: !~calc (3.141491330 - pi)/pi * 100 [20:56]
jhvh1: mircea_popescu: (3.141491330 - pi)/pi * 100 = -0.0032252300334771494 [20:56]
mircea_popescu: !~calc pi [20:57]
jhvh1: mircea_popescu: pi = 3.141592653589793 [20:57]
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: technically the idjit util is right tho, it's below 0.01% err [20:57]
* mod6 checks his results [20:57]
mircea_popescu: ya. [20:57]
mircea_popescu: counterintuitvely, the 4th decimal of pi should be within a 100th of a 100th [20:58]
asciilifeform: << oblig thread [20:58]
a111: Logged on 2017-05-23 01:04 asciilifeform: asciilifeform used 'dieharder' to reject a handful of screamingly defective analogue units , but currently isn't sure that it's good for much re a ~working~ one [20:58]
mod6: I had one result that was 10%, the rest 25%-50% : [20:58]
mircea_popescu: anyway, item seems fine. [20:59]
asciilifeform: it chronically bothers asciilifeform , that there is actually nothing to compare fg to [21:00]
asciilifeform: unlike literally every other instrument i have [21:00]
mircea_popescu: heh. count your blessings. [21:00]
mircea_popescu: and in other epic pix : check out the lt checking out the ukr slut while she's going "omfg, are there more coming still ? this will be a long night." [21:03]

mircea_popescu: then ill rate you and you'll be able to self-voice. [21:08]
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform chick came by in march and then a few days ago, my records show, none of you hardasses thought to up her. [21:09]
asciilifeform: ain't n00bz supposed to pm somebody an' ask ? [21:09]
mircea_popescu: i suppose. [21:09]
mircea_popescu: eo so what do you know of teh republic ? [21:10]
eo: @mircea_popescu only what i read in your blog posts [21:11]
mircea_popescu: i see. soo... wanna argue about anything ? [21:12]
eo: that's tough. i'm only here because i already agree with most of your content. [21:12]
mircea_popescu: weird, we dun generally find much fault with yours, notwitstanding in theory we should! [21:13]
mircea_popescu: !!up elaineo [21:22]
deedbot: elaineo voiced for 30 minutes. [21:22]
asciilifeform: meanwhile, vex writes in, in au, with : 'One of the country's top universities has warned maths students not to use the term 'marriage' when referring to a well-known theorem because the word may cause 'offence.'' [21:44]
mircea_popescu: why would anyone stick around after that is incomprehensible. [21:52]
danielpbarron: !!key cruciform [22:28]

BingoBoingo: << Anyone know a place to plop one of these outside NATO near transit cable to make datacenter? [23:34]
ben_vulpes: BingoBoingo: perhaps a more suitable prefab? [23:38]
BingoBoingo: ben_vulpes: Prefab strip mall has shorter walk to coffee shop, provided a coffee data tenant rents space [23:39]
ben_vulpes: it is a sad truth that all data centers i have been in have sadder coffee production facilities than even starbucks. [23:41]
ben_vulpes: also use windows. also in usshitistan. [23:41]
BingoBoingo: Really [coffee shop][datacenter (studio apartment carveout)][scooter dealer] is imagined layout [23:45]
BingoBoingo: for the moment [23:45]
BingoBoingo: If locale has enough people who feel entitled to protective road cage to justify 4-wheel dealership, locale prolly sucks for building building [23:47]
ben_vulpes: under that analysis, should probably do fork/heavy equipment/rental+dealership instead of scooter dealership [23:50]
BingoBoingo: Nah, the customers there are demanding and suspicious. Not to mention keeps existential threats to datacenter too close. [23:50]
BingoBoingo: Re-reading of the moment [23:51]
ben_vulpes: existential threats, yes, but in their docile state! [23:51]
BingoBoingo: ben_vulpes: Few have meaningful locks on them. Only docile because passerby have anxiety about starting up unattented equipment. [23:52]
BingoBoingo: Anyways, it's hard to meaningfully lock a door when excavator sleeps within 100 yards of door. Doesn't leave much time to take position with anti-materiel rifle before it closes range [23:53]
ben_vulpes: lol ok ok [23:54]
BingoBoingo: While scooters produce delicious 2-stroke exhaust and help the pobre commute within their substantial means [23:54]
ben_vulpes: not like it would be hard to wire keypads into them if they still don't have meaningful locks. [23:54]
BingoBoingo: ben_vulpes: Most heavy equipment starts by holding hidden button while pressing "start button", Or turning key shapped ignition switch while holding hidden button [23:55]
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: asciilifeform's father's auto in ye olde su, had one of these [23:56]
asciilifeform: 'seekrit' starter-enbl button [23:57]

asciilifeform: iirc it had to be clicked a magic # of times, or rhythm, or somesuch [23:58]
mod6: lot of the bobcats i've seen recently have a 10-key pad to enter a code before it can be started. [23:59]
