ben_vulpes: perhaps 50k is the most one can hope to make on a short term 100% leveraged play in the states i've no idea what his relationship with the brokerage was like but he *had* to have had a margin account, it would be an offense to the oldladyempire if someone didn't [16:06]
asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: what i meant is, he likely had, say, 5k, to turn into 50 if had 10 - would turn to 100 etc [16:06]
asciilifeform: and presumably whole affair didn't last long enough to connect the hose and form arsemouthsystem [16:07]
ben_vulpes: myeah, i hear ya [16:08]
mircea_popescu: << not that hard to nuke a box, all of them do reinstalls and shit [16:09]
a111: Logged on 2017-09-27 03:18 asciilifeform: but no more leaving intact os+etc when leaving a hoster, by default. it is unhygienic. [16:09]
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: idea was, to automate, make it wholly mechanical part of moving shitbox providers on arbitrarily short notice (i.e. 0 notice to the one who's being ditched until ~after~ you've moved the contents) [16:12]
mircea_popescu: if only anyone in the fiat world were this acute.\ [16:13]

a111: Logged on 2017-09-27 11:48 davout: BingoBoingo: I r alive [16:15]
asciilifeform: ( the other half of $idea, was that shitbox oughta be convertible to 'godly' os+env, mechanically, kvmlessly, (again with 0 notice to human on isp end), and without retaining 1 single byte of what was on the box when they gave you login ) [16:15]
* asciilifeform pictures davout as having the same job as the bear in old american cartoon 'tail spin', and so he dun have net access often from the old flyin'boat [16:17]
mircea_popescu: << i doubt anyone'd notice if facebook was down for two weeks, either. at this point, 100% of the fiat "traffic" is simply bots. they will happily until the end of times. [16:22]
a111: Logged on 2017-09-27 13:59 jurov: sourceforge down for 2 days already, and noone notices anymore [16:22]

asciilifeform: eh i'd give fiddybux for it. of lunch money. just so that the next day ALL the winblows exes will format c: [16:28]
mircea_popescu: << you misunderstand the way sec works in these "insider trading" cases is very much EXACTLY alf's "peasant with rembrands go to jail". the man's crime is that he made money. simply and purely that, it is ASSUMED that he couldn't have known, on the strength of being a nobody. that's it. [16:29]
a111: Logged on 2017-09-27 19:52 ben_vulpes: campaign against knowing anything about how the world works will continue until the risk free rate is negative [16:29]
mircea_popescu: the "subtle" view being that this discourages gambling which is a societal good. [16:29]
asciilifeform: from lizard pov, he took what belongs to hitler, plain an' simple [16:30]
mircea_popescu: but much like all property is presumed of the crown, with random sefs such as yourself merely in tenous tenancy (known as precaria, historically), which is why you can have things such as "cases in rem", because the court admits no ownership vested IN PERSONS [16:30]
mircea_popescu: just so all knowledge is also presumed in the crown, and you knowing something "you shouldn't have" simply means you spied. what else could it mean ? [16:30]
mircea_popescu: "your honor, i'm smarter than the inca, natch" ? [16:31]
mircea_popescu: everywhere in the world, this thing of yours, is yours, and the court may inquire after it. in the us, like in all slave empires, this thing of the court, you, MAYBE, may beg for. [16:31]
asciilifeform: the rembrandt case took place, ftr, in ro [16:32]
asciilifeform: ( granted, nato ro ) [16:32]
mircea_popescu: well, europe. i dun recall, uk, ro, etc. [16:32]
asciilifeform: and where exactly does peasant own ? i'd like to buy a plane ticket... [16:33]
mircea_popescu: was stolen from netherlands and taken to london was it ? something like that. [16:33]
asciilifeform: afaik nowhere does peasant own more than fits in his arse. [16:33]
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform afghanistan, for one. [16:33]
asciilifeform: antarctica, for two... [16:34]
mircea_popescu: and that's just the letter A! [16:34]
asciilifeform: 1 possibly interesting observation is that if the d00d had a btctronic means of capitalizing on his 'insiderism', he might still walk the big zone, unmolested [16:38]
mircea_popescu: except nobody + crypto = terrorism neh [16:38]
asciilifeform: instead he took in a wad of electro-fiatola, which is instant alarm bell at nsa ( whole directorate, as described in 2013 leakz ) [16:39]
mircea_popescu: where was that northafrica piece about "refused to give passwords, interferes with crown" ? [16:39]
asciilifeform: some time this wk [16:39]
asciilifeform: but regular thing. [16:39]
mircea_popescu: so notrly. only thing left for him is to joestack before they ^ [16:39]
asciilifeform: the heuristic is pretty simple -- d00d lives in plebelands, in cardboard house, works cardboard job, etc. and suddenly his bank balance grows a coupla decimal places ? bell rings. [16:40]
mircea_popescu: and yes "that's not what i wanted to hear", but the fucking problem with going "lalalaican'thearyou" for 50 years is that when you finally quit it and listen it'll sound exactly like "too late, mr shcmucktard" [16:40]
asciilifeform: unless, i suppose, you are hruschev, and your travel is always by means of own battleship, it is flatly stupid to keep seekritz in places nosy idjits in foreign ports can easily get to, e.g. civilian baggage [16:54]
mircea_popescu: im pretty sure hruschev had his passport stamped when entering us, like any other schmuck. [16:59]
mircea_popescu: tis the ourdemocracy fantasy. [16:59]
ben_vulpes: a+ landlords: [17:43]
asciilifeform: ~all american houses burn like matchsticks, why is that particular one famous [17:45]
asciilifeform: ( who recalls the thread in - iirc - '14, where mircea_popescu described how a chum of his came to usa, and tried to build a nonburning house, and Had Problems, went home in the end ) [17:46]
mircea_popescu: aha. [17:51]
deedbot: << Trilema - The bitter lot [18:18]
* mircea_popescu thanks asciilifeform, the premise turned out to be extremely fertile! [18:18]
* asciilifeform read it earlier, while deedbot slept [18:19]
* asciilifeform like many folx, has own ad-hoc cat-and-rat-system [18:20]
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform pictures davout as having the same job as the bear in old american cartoon 'tail spin', and so he dun have net access often from the old flyin'boat << AHA, you do remember Disney other than jaundiced pooh [18:43]
BingoBoingo: davout: I'm wondering if an progress was made finding Francophone datacenters outside France, preferaby in the heart of the dark continent [18:46]
* mircea_popescu encourages the editor in chief. [18:54]
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: it was actually translated some time around 1990 [19:08]
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: dark continent << didn't we have a d00d in za at some point..? [19:09]
BingoBoingo: editor in chief is lead fishing [19:31]
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: It was the fluffypony monero guy, he's introduced in a Trilema. 2013-ish if I remember [19:36]
asciilifeform: then we definitely, afaik, have nobody in za [19:36]
asciilifeform: d00d went full bore idjit loong ago. [19:36]
mircea_popescu: is "za" zaire ? [19:36]
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: za is south africa [19:36]
BingoBoingo: Petrus land [19:36]
asciilifeform: duffer'sdrift land [19:36]
mircea_popescu: this makes sense. [19:36]
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: I did not specify south africa. If I recall davout was off the gold coast [19:37]
asciilifeform: incidentally did BingoBoingo ever read 'duffer's drift' ? [19:37]
BingoBoingo: << There it is [19:37]
mircea_popescu: why the fuck do we want what's left after rhodesia's rape for any purpose ? [19:37]
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Has not yet seen [19:37]
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo there's also [19:37]
asciilifeform: i dunno that it belongs on the we-want list [19:38]
asciilifeform: but it meets some of the technical litmuses. [19:38]
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: AHA [19:38]
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform such as what, black chix coding ? [19:38]
asciilifeform: nah that's in the other africa [19:38]
BingoBoingo: Well, survey of not NATO means surveying... Not NATO [19:38]
mircea_popescu: their fucking motto is "unity in diversity" ffs. [19:40]
asciilifeform: also i have nfi whether the item that remained after the rape, is still squirming or not. [19:41]
asciilifeform: theoretically some part of it -- may be [19:41]
asciilifeform: ~somebody~ is buying those flamethrowers. [19:42]
mircea_popescu: technically australia is also "not in nato" or whatever the fuck.\ [19:43]
mircea_popescu: scarcely any difference. [19:43]
asciilifeform: 5eyes ~= nato [19:43]
mircea_popescu: which is my fucking point here. south africa is not off the list of shitholes just because it's where white cucks go to have their wives strechtertained [19:43]
BingoBoingo: Chad, Cote de Ivory, Somalia, Liberia, Nigeria [19:44]
asciilifeform: if mircea_popescu says za is an unterraformable pesthole, then it is. [19:44]
* asciilifeform has deeply nfi [19:44]
BingoBoingo: Perhaps boki haram has datacenters? [19:44]
mircea_popescu: if they can keep 'em up. [19:45]
mircea_popescu: apparently stretchtertained is not a word, as far as the alphabet ai knows. but evidently [19:46]
BingoBoingo: Hey, if Microsoft can do servers in tents [19:46]
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo it's easier for them, they don't have to actually work. [19:46]
BingoBoingo: le sigh, there goes dream of coffee shop next to datacenter being staffed by black people in white suits all county club style [19:49]
mircea_popescu: why, you can have that in egypt. [19:53]
BingoBoingo: Egypt is too practically NATO, the Israelis are right there [19:54]
BingoBoingo: In today's WAPO wank of the day: "There is no single, definitive answer to how Roy Moore, American politics’ closest approximation of a theocrat who’s twice been removed from the state Supreme Court for disobeying orders, was able to beat the twin political machines of the White House and the Senate leadership in his comfortable defeat of Sen. Luther Strange." [19:56]
BingoBoingo: How does a Justice of a Supreme Court recieve "orders"? [19:57]
mircea_popescu: ahaha [20:06]
mircea_popescu: "there is no answer we can think of besides the one we don't want to!" and other [20:07]
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo anyway, why is the idea WH was supporting strange ? didn't like, trump beleete his support tweets and errythang ? [20:10]
