a111: Logged on 2015-05-19 00:48 justJanne: Every. Single. Time. A governmentally owned institution got sold to a US investor they either closed down 2 days later, became shit, or just expensive. [09:47]
mp_en_viaje: imagine, if say the usg were sold on the market. do you think it'd either be closed in two days, or just discontinued for being shit ? [09:48]
mp_en_viaje: clearly, this'd be the fault of the investors. [09:48]
mp_en_viaje: imagine if someone collected all the us-ranged dependopopotami, all those suburban fat wives looking for someone to validate their concerns, and sold them off. [09:48]
mp_en_viaje: closed two days later i wonder ? probably... ALSO the investor's fault ? it's not like "everything the government makes IS shit", not at all ? [09:49]
asciilifeform: wb ave1 ! [10:16]
mp_en_viaje: in other usg lulz : back in 2010 there was romanian gavin : https://kingofromania.com/2011/12/31/the-foot-of-the-ladder/ [10:55]

asciilifeform: also waithefuq would anyone move to transnistria. why not to proper ru. [11:11]
mp_en_viaje: cuz that's where the job sends, yes ? [11:12]
asciilifeform: wait he had job?! [11:12]
mp_en_viaje: apparently he's been working for usg.blue this whole time. [11:12]
asciilifeform: lol!! [11:13]
asciilifeform: 'diplomat' ? [11:13]
mp_en_viaje: "deep undercover" hurr durr. [11:13]
mp_en_viaje: ~schmuck, but you know how it is, these have the easiest time [11:13]
asciilifeform: afaik traditionally marrying aboriginals is verboten for these [11:14]
mp_en_viaje: i think by now they use a sort of auxiliaries that are allowed to marry. [11:14]
mp_en_viaje: "you're still working for the government, you just don't get a pension" [11:15]

mp_en_viaje: alright. [11:15]
BingoBoingo: "Activist" [11:17]
asciilifeform: re moldavia : asciilifeform has a hilarious ro textboot, from sovok-era moldavia. exactly , near as i can tell, ordinary ro, but cyrillicized [11:17]
asciilifeform: ( and with modern-day ru-style cyrillic, rather than the slavonic pre-1860 thing seen in ro museums ) [11:17]
mp_en_viaje: i thought it's a little weird, /me throws a small bone, dog studiously pretends to not notice while tryna get all sorta typically needful "projects" off ground, like writing books and makign tv pilots. [11:18]
mp_en_viaje: but patience solves all, apparently. now it snaps into sense shape [11:19]
asciilifeform: how found that he's a blue muppet ? ( caught and connected to 220v and confessed? ) or indirect ? [11:20]
* asciilifeform brb:meat [11:23]
BingoBoingo: And in local cultural weird, the pichis are more likely to tell the government surveyors they smoke "pasta base" (cocaine refining waste product) than marijuana https://www.elobservador.com.uy/nota/personas-que-viven-en-la-calle-aumentaron-a-2-038-segun-datos-del-mides-2019530111026 [11:24]
mp_en_viaje: asciilifeform, well, meanwhile since i'm here put a little more weight into the network and so on. [12:25]
* mp_en_viaje has been working on this god damned article ALL FUCKING DAY [12:25]
asciilifeform: https://kingofromania.files.wordpress.com/2018/04/cyrillicromanian.jpg << in upstack lulz. [13:29]
asciilifeform: mp_en_viaje: apparently d00d was kicked out of ro ? [13:31]
asciilifeform: ( sounds like quite a feat ) [13:31]
mp_en_viaje: indeed. i had sluts live illegally for years, didn't even get fined. [13:32]
asciilifeform: afaik this worx in ~erry country -- if you never encounter any official busybodies at all, why wouldja get kicked. [13:33]
mp_en_viaje: nfi. [13:34]
phf: http://btcbase.org/log/2019-05-29#1916136 << i'm using hunchentoot-1.2.35 but that's in no way explored, that's whatever i got out of quicklisp on first btcbase deploy [14:45]
a111: Logged on 2019-05-29 08:42 spyked: in particular, I saw trinque, phf and ben_vulpes have been using it in the past, so I'd appreciate any input you have on the matter [14:45]
phf: i'm also using http://marijnhaverbeke.nl/talks/defservice/ in front of it, and i added support for hunchentoot, so i rarely write anything that looks like hunchentoot specific code. [14:48]
phf: i'm not sure that's particularly useful. at the time i was still switching between running btcbase on hunchentoot in prod and on alisp/aserve in development [14:49]
phf: http://btcbase.org/log/2019-05-29#1916138 << this is apropos http://btcbase.org/log/2018-08-21#1843481 lukego went on to write snabb switch, which is userspace network appliance construction kit [15:01]
a111: Logged on 2019-05-29 08:51 spyked: http://btcbase.org/log/2019-05-22#1915245 <-- in other c coad, /me spent his last 2-3 weeks looking at the tcp stack implementation in linus' kernel. it is truly a fungus, macguyvered with duct tape and rubber bands, such that changing one line almost anywhere breaks shit all over the place. [15:01]
a111: Logged on 2018-08-21 17:36 phf: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-08-20#1843300 << little known fact: slime's architecture was originally implemented in a similar project for erlang called distel, by the same author luke gorrie. lukego also wrote an emacs clone in erlang and tcp/ip stack in cmucl. [15:01]
phf: they use some subset of intel cards that let you push/pull own raw packets from userspace, essentially bypassing linux tcpip implementation. that is a direction to consider.. [15:04]
mircea_popescu: conceivably. [15:05]
mircea_popescu: trinque, http://p.bvulpes.com/pastes/VJiWz/?raw=true [15:06]
feedbot: http://trilema.com/2019/din-togo-din-togo-da-de-a-cui/ << Trilema -- Din Togo, din Togo... da' de-a cui ? [15:08]
asciilifeform: phf: not clear for what one even needs linux if you got a lisptronic ip stack [15:12]
asciilifeform: ( comparatively easy to bake fs, scheduler, etc , next to this ) [15:13]
asciilifeform: nic is the 1 inescapable peripheral when baking os and by far the gnarliest. [15:13]
mircea_popescu: maybe not fs. but it takes a bite. [15:13]
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform, http://p.bvulpes.com/pastes/4yVZ5/?raw=true [15:18]
phf: asciilifeform: right, snabb doesn't have some of our restrictions, i.e. they accept all kinds of modern gnarl in exchange for the ability to send raw packets. i'm not sure their approach even works on old cards [15:18]
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: got it, worx. plox to deedbot-invoice asciilifeform (i'ma have to refill the piggy before i can fill it tho). [15:20]
mircea_popescu: no rush. [15:21]
asciilifeform: ty for the work, mircea_popescu [15:21]
mircea_popescu: im thinking of catching up with all the invoicing this weekend. [15:22]
* asciilifeform also catching up , with the bloody ch18, the php crapola ate up moar sweat than -- i think -- any prev. ch, possibly aside from barrett [15:23]
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: a++ phototour btw [15:25]
mircea_popescu: yee! [15:25]
mircea_popescu: speaking of which, i'm about to transfer ~15 gb worth of pics through http://btcbase.org/log/2019-02-03#1892065 mechanism, and it occurs to me... hey ben_vulpes would this be criminal misuse of the system ? [15:27]
a111: Logged on 2019-02-03 17:27 mircea_popescu: in other news, mp's own bash grenadiers regiment suggests an ad interim solution for http://btcbase.org/log/2019-02-02#1891951 in the shape of ls | grep ^x..$' | while read line do curl -Ls -o /dev/null -w %{url_effective} -X POST -F "pastebox=@$line" http://p.bvulpes.com -w %{url_effective} done [15:27]
asciilifeform: phf: i once sank good bit of time into attempt to bring up the ubiquitous 'crab nic' (realtek gb) from asm. broke teeth, it needs a working interrupt stack to run (i.e. 'spittoon in 1 strand', need entire os) . since then, found the 'seekrit' datashit, theoretically could do it, but not had time. [15:33]
a111: Logged on 2018-09-04 16:15 asciilifeform: and recall, at one time asciilifeform burned 6mo+ to try and bring up realtek GB nic from 'raw iron', in the end did not even succeed in this [15:33]
asciilifeform: ( and yes needs interrupt handler to ~send~, as well as receive, a frame, go figure. ) [15:34]
asciilifeform: in principle a useful os could consist simply of a lisp runtime and nic diddler (dun strictly need fs etc could store bits on a nfs or the like) [15:35]
* asciilifeform brb:teatime [15:37]

Hace una semana la industria arrocera Samman cerró dos plantas en la ciudad de Río Branco (Cerro Largo). En tanto, espera que el cereal ocupe en su próxima zafra –que comenza [20:11]
BingoBoingo: rá en aproximadamente dos semanas– la menor superficie de los últimos 25 años, con una caída del 30% en la intención de siembra (a unas 135 mil hectáreas). Pese a que Uruguay es uno de los líderes en productividad a nivel mundial, los crecientes costos del cultivo encadenan ya cinco campañas consecutivas con números rojos." [20:11]
BingoBoingo: Anglophages: Everybody must grow rice in the superior Uruguayo style to feed the Africa! [20:16]
BingoBoingo: Uruguayos: We gotta plant less acres of rice than ever because breaking even on grain is hard! [20:17]
trinque: mircea_popescu: ack! [21:14]

asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: do they not have pinkertons there ? or not enuff maxim gun? or which. [22:25]

asciilifeform: AbuseOfNotation: who might you be ? [22:44]
