mircea_popescu: computers are hard, what can i tell you.
mircea_popescu: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-06-11#1822694 << jesus fuck how fucking braindead can you get! let ~everyone else~ not use fucking computers, holy shit. there's a reason http://trilema.com/2016/the-megawatt-standard/ already! ☝︎
mircea_popescu: such luzly cluelessness as to how to win a war, it's possibly the prime field of ustardian bogonism. i mean... they can;'t program computers, sure. but at least the computer doesn't shoot you for being an idiot.

mircea_popescu: anges, computers can do well whatever you decide and receive. You can begin you operating, give time to dash, following get going a further and it doesn't involve interfering with the entire process of the upfront just one particular.

mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i do not want anything in particular ; but i do observe and therefore declare that as water flows to lower ground and as good money pushes out the bad so too better computers own shittier computers and there's jack shit me or you or them or anyone can do about this.

asciilifeform: oblig here is y. kreinin's article on 'computers you can't program'
mircea_popescu: http://log.mkj.lt/trilema/20160906/from:62/to:62#62 << the same thing is in principle true of cryptography generally (funny how it just keeps coming back to this again and again) : "no matter how long you make your key, it can be factored by adding more computers". this is true ; but it's up to you to make it irrelevant. the reason whenever someone does manage to ddos trilema / qntra / etc i tend to just wait is because time
mircea_popescu: especially his discussion of kqueue and the hashtable/array duality + fd_getfile workings strictly indicates a) he's an idiot ; b) that http://trilema.com/2016/cargo-cults-a-case-study/ 's "This is what cargo cultism is, you see : memetic stupidity, inescapable for the aculturated. Even if they try. Especially if they try." is exactly right and, sadly, c) that alf is exactly correct : we can't have computers as a continuation
diana_coman: imo you are on to something else there; computers at the moment are tools, hence programmed like tools and this is not something one can solve at programming level (hey, let's start training computers now and they will learn!)

asciilifeform: $s computers you can't program
mircea_popescu: and the problems with "roughly, means 'machine where you can implement new crypto', for mircea_popescu's purposes" should be obvious to someone who astutely points out that there's no math proof for crypto. the same thinking that works there works here, it does not follow i need computers redditard can buy to exist in order for to have crypto.
mircea_popescu: "here baby, replace this line with your own address, plug into all the computers you can find"
mircea_popescu: "Every file you write in there is signed. There's no manual signing process, no taring or gzipping, no detached sigs. Instead, everything in this folder appears as plaintext files on everyone's computers. You can even open /keybase/public/yourname in your Finder or Explorer and drag things in."
ascii_butugychag: (somehow the conclusion that 'computers you can't program' don't belong in a security application, is lost on folks)
BingoBoingo: ben_vulpes: With same language you can program the two best portable computers ever. The TI-89 and the TI-92
mircea_popescu: ;;google yosefk.com "computers you can't program"
ascii_shmoocon: didja ever read yossi kreinin's piece 'computers you can't program ' ?
mircea_popescu: anyway, "hacking" is not a thing, it's the byproduct of knowing how to program computers. which you can learn, like anything else, provided you got the patience.
mircea_popescu: you don't sell. you cut a deal with ONE competitor in a field, and that's that. the rest all die because they can't deploy computers that work.
funkenstein_: as I see it the reason to have a crapple is you can pretend to know nothing about computers
asciilifeform: and here is where we meet up with vlsi boojum: you can't do vlsi economically if there is room for six computers total. ☟︎
gabriel_laddel: and you can sell computers preloaded without needig big investment, if you find a niche where you can considerably improve their process << this is true.

assbot: Logged on 22-05-2015 21:34:19; trinque: ;;later tell gabriel_laddel "I see no reason I can't sell computers pre-loaded with Masamune." be careful, you're underestimating the colossal difficulty of this and there are old skeletons on old battlefields that thought the same. *do you have the connections to make these sales to big businesses, militaries, private schools, and so on?*

mircea_popescu: "lets make computers fun" ; "you know, for kids" and "anyone can do this". fuck that.
mircea_popescu: bounce incidentally, since you bring it up : most idiots of the "irc is not irl" and "i trust real people" variety fail to understand that with modern computers i can make any one person to say any one thing. just give me a collection of their voice recorded.
mircea_popescu: and for all the error-fiends : you can't correctly represent decimal numbers in computers today, it doesn't stop anyone from derping on the pretense computers are ideal machines.
mircea_popescu: "As for the algorithms themselves, the math, many like DSA are actually overtly designed by the NSA, so you can be sure they know how to break them, or they wouldn’t offer them. Others are probably expensive but crackable in high-interest cases (we’re talking quantum computers at their disposal). For anything super-critical I think a one-time pad is the only guarantee, and make sure your RNG works!"
mircea_popescu: What can it do? Matrix math, basically. Obviously, even thinking about this in the most hand-wavey manner, optical computers should be good at image processing. When you break down what is involved in image processing, matrix math and Fourier transforms come to mind. We know how to do matrix math with optical computers. The limiting aspect is how many elements you can encode and modulate quickly. An optical matrix mu
mutate_: I'm fairly keen on being in the queue for one of the first alien blowjobs, before the novelty wears off and they start marrying humans and making them unhappy. Unfortunately I can't by any magic Ether cards because maths and computers got you fairly badly bullied at school and so I simply use a computer to have my bank details stolen from and know nothing whatsoever about Linux. What can I do?
mp_a_colonia: from the u.s. school of rectothermodynamics: http://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/2014/06/massachusetts-high-court-orders-suspect-to-decrypt-his-computers << is htis one of those where you can end up in jail permanently without habeas corpus / other review because "you're holding the keys to your cell" legal philosophy ?
ninjashogun: mircea_popescu, you can also see a lot of that in Apple computers. For example, they are supposed to be very "easy to use" (yet are expensive). But this hides the fact that a lot of people use it to run accounting software that's also dumbed down to their level, and a load of similar extra-expensive things that let them manage their lifestyle. It's becaues they make enough money to buy Macs and to buy expensive dumbed-do
benkay: because you can do 80% of the things you'd want to do by pressing buttons someone else put on the screen for you, you never learn to actually make computers do things.
benkay: BingoBoingo: do you know? can you recite the ballad of how computers got wholly fucked?

pankkake: how do you prevent an attack by computers you can rent by the hour?
MJR_: ThickAsThieves: lol...its crazy when you hang out with people who understand computers and then get confronted with "can we just make all of them blue" (select all)
jurov: generally when computers get 2x more powerful, you can solve one bit more
