asciilifeform meanwhile found a : 'Cogent Communications is a public company trading on the NASDAQ under the symbol CCOI. Cogent is headquartered in Washington, D.C., United States of America.' from horse's mouth.
asciilifeform: ( just who owns cogent co ? anyone know ? )
asciilifeform: also unrelatedly, but imho interesting : apparently 'mivocloud' hangs off a euro branch office of same carrier as asciilifeform's chair.
asciilifeform: unrelatedly : seems is new trb noad, in kiev ? who built? seems to actually work, a++
asciilifeform: diana_coman: i rewrote comment and posted where belongs.
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: do the books, but imho oughta get mp's pov before actually paying anyone.
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo, mod6 : thinking about it, i realized i have nfi what the priority order of creditors is. thought, 'customers go 1st' strictly from example of bitbet unwind.
asciilifeform: mod6, BingoBoingo : afaik the refund for subscribers is the 1 equation w/out any unknowns. so oughta happen as soon as BingoBoingo is ready.
asciilifeform: a, logical.
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: but the fraud wasn't actually in the text of the 1st ? so then gotta file 2nd
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: and iirc you already filed the fraud complaint, neh ?
asciilifeform: *timespan
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: if the inflicted-costs aint even detectable except over geological timespam, tho, it dun do much for us
asciilifeform: diana_coman: ty. ( further re traps, imho e.g. python -c "print 11 ^ 77" aint much of hurdle )
asciilifeform: diana_coman: will do. ( as for spam trap, until i actually get chance to move my www to mp's wp system, the spam trap stays, i dun have slaves to filter the 400+ spamolas was getting erry day prior to installation of traps )
asciilifeform: mod6: afaik (ianal!) is how settlements are made, by 'meeting with the damned'
asciilifeform: !Qlater tell spyked can you add my www to feedbot-commentism roster plox ? ty
asciilifeform: diana_coman: typically (esp. folx who can't be arsed to xor 2 #s..) comment re my own text in log, rather than on www. so got habit of this. but yer right, comments oughta go on orig piece.
asciilifeform: diana_coman: noted, henceforth will comment there. ( in asciilifeform's pov is easier to follow comments in log, but really decision of author )
asciilifeform: diana_coman: do you have feedbot-comments set up ? ( i for instance do not, yet, tho afaik after recent fix my www supports comment-rss )
asciilifeform: ^ was how i read it also
asciilifeform brb,tea
asciilifeform: ...and if you actually have the budget to even try.
asciilifeform: and this still only worx if sumthing like sane jurisdiction, ~and~ troo specialist, ~and~ actually loyal...
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: mp did warn, that the only way to get ~genuine~ (vs 'meal ticket') legal service is to retain and groom for loyalty a trusted specialist for yrs.
asciilifeform: fwiw when heathens are asked to do the things they actually advertise, sometimes very good service. e.g. asciilifeform asked coloco at 0hrs to fix this nonsense , and by 0300 hrs they ~did~ fix. genuine 24/7 repair, i was impressed.
asciilifeform: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/trilema/2019-10-24#1947981 << i admit that actually surprised that none of'em (at least as chronicled) answered diana_coman with 'just how many boxes are you planning to buy, that you are also asking us to convert to new religion ?'
asciilifeform: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/trilema/2019-10-24#1947977 << this holds in context of apprenticeship, but where else ? hire auto mechanic only if you are auto mechanic yourself ?!
asciilifeform admits that slightly surprised that neither mp_en_viaje nor diana_coman made the yet-darker criticism, i.e. 'what is even the use of ssh fp on box w/out trng'
asciilifeform: diana_coman: how which relevant ?
asciilifeform: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/trilema/2019-10-24#1947965 << answr'd .
asciilifeform: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/trilema/2019-10-24#1947954 << always forgotten ? or only i forgot. ( looked in archive, and in fact when mp gave me boxes he always remembered to fp. it's quite necessary. )
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: pretty interesting post. seems to be exactly as mp predicted.
asciilifeform: aaand that noad ( , mp's demo box ) synced. 500+ blox in <5h, notbad.
asciilifeform: reminds me, i have a still-sealed crate w/ temperature logger...
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: iirc the earlier dpb ddos was genuine. oughta have properly turned on the heat then, thinking about it.
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: i dun recall seeing any hard evidence that it did, aha
asciilifeform: lol
asciilifeform: ( ddos got tired, went home ? nfi )
asciilifeform: !q uptime
asciilifeform: re ddos -- possibly there aint any ddos :
asciilifeform: mp_en_viaje: if after all you dun need a znc , leave the thing switched on, i'ma reformat when next test pilot volunteers, until then will run trb , i want proper test of trb perf on apu1. but if you decide you want a znc, su znc ; znc -c will run promptistic configurator. then reboot, and you'll have it.
asciilifeform: mp_en_viaje: very good pt re fp! i'ma put it in the standard preflight checklist.
asciilifeform bbl,tea. ty mp_en_viaje for taking up test pilotage.
asciilifeform: the os is the current draft of 'asciilifeform-dulap' as earlier provided to diana_coman .
asciilifeform: mp_en_viaje: item is general-purpose pilot box, plz feel free to mutilate any way you like. the trb is a copy of 'zoolag', can replace w/ own favourite build, or switch off, etc. there is a nearly full chain. znc is set to smoketest knobs, if using , must reconfig.
asciilifeform: mp_en_viaje: http://paste.deedbot.org/?id=n75d .
asciilifeform: 1s
asciilifeform: !!key mp_en_viaje
asciilifeform: oooh
asciilifeform: hm?
asciilifeform: mp_en_viaje: http://paste.deedbot.org/?id=J_sR
asciilifeform: aa, 1s
asciilifeform loox at what the heathen noad registry thinks the domain is... and lolwtf
asciilifeform: oblig photo.
asciilifeform: is plugged in & going.
asciilifeform: mp_en_viaje: prepared, however, box, if still interested. runs trb and znc ( the latter w/ default config, presently logs into fleanode as 'pilotplant' and joins #a , can fill in yerself or switch off by removing the crontab ) on boot.
asciilifeform prepared pilot box for mp! nao will smoke test & he can pick up when ready
asciilifeform off to cage.
asciilifeform: oook no answer, fella's getting the spiffier box! (can downsize later if wants.)
asciilifeform: i'ma set up both, in case takes him a while to beat modem into submission an' answer...
asciilifeform: 'coreboot' bios.
asciilifeform: apu1 equipped w/ 4GB ram and 2 cores of opteron.
asciilifeform: grr too many kbds
asciilifeform: *1tb
asciilifeform: *mp_en_viaje
asciilifeform: for mp_en_viaja, i have the choice of 1) standard rk, cum znc 2) apu1 w/ 1gb samsung ssd, cum znc, and in fact prepared trb on it also.
asciilifeform: mp_en_viaje: plox to gpg ssh key you want to use (or otherwise i'ma gen random pw and gpg to mp_en_viaje , and he can put in at leisure )
asciilifeform: mp_en_viaje: welcome aboard then, test pilot ! i'ma bake it.
asciilifeform: eh.
asciilifeform: i'd have already smashed my desk if i had to live with irc conn like mp_en_viaje's
asciilifeform: mp_en_viaje: meanwhile does mp_en_viaje believe in bouncers ? could have 1 within 3h if you want.
asciilifeform: mp_en_viaje: let's come back to this after article, with your permission.
asciilifeform later will set up publicly-viewable meter for these
asciilifeform so far saw a few udp farts on the line but nuffin that detectably affected bot
asciilifeform dun expect he will, but it'd be a++ ddos litmus...
asciilifeform: can i persuade mp_en_viaje to take a (pro bono!) bouncer rk in asciilifeformstein ?
asciilifeform: grr again ddos?!
asciilifeform: mp_en_viaje: plox to elaborate ?
asciilifeform: why ty mp_en_viaje . ( i appreciate the tutoring even if mp_en_viaje dun want to subscribe )
asciilifeform: mp_en_viaje: in reality i dun think ever had this experience of 'do w/out trying', i suspect mp_en_viaje is drawing from own biography. asciilifeform was not 'child prodigy' and never had this .
asciilifeform actually had > beard in 20 than nao but dun want to ruin mp_en_viaje's flamemetaphor
asciilifeform: for what, exactly ? to meet the spec of a fella who aint even subscribing ?
asciilifeform: i do ??
asciilifeform: when , incidentally, will set the bozo bit on all the other useless dabblers ? throw out , for consistency, 'v', deedbot, auctionbot, all sewed by also folx who work for a living and managed to steal some time in which to do sumthing useful.
asciilifeform: mp_en_viaje: uninterested -- then uninterested. and i'd rather find out nao, than later, so ty. i dun have the capital to spend fulltime, and find it odd that mp_en_viaje only nao realized this.
asciilifeform hasn't any time presently for 'shiny'
asciilifeform: diana_coman: i promise -- not to.
asciilifeform: diana_coman: i did not get chance to actually read any of it, and dun know when will, atm. comment strictly re interesting titles..
asciilifeform: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/trilema/2019-10-23#1947796 << interesting read ( fella had his own ersatz-cuntoo ?! )
asciilifeform: in unrelated noose, asciilifeform's logz auto-syncer worx. will go in vpatch later.
asciilifeform: asciilifeform's orig. vtron did not make use of the net at all, runs a++ on boxes w/out nics, and imho this is Right Thing.
asciilifeform: fwiw a mp-wp extension that lets folx 'download these-here patches' imho may be useful. but really ought not to be ~in vtron~ .
asciilifeform: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/trilema/2019-10-23#1947792 << i also never used. in my eyes it smacked of 'svn', 'git', similar barbarisms; imho vpatches oughta be downloaded by hand, carefully, rather than to rely on mechanical 'load'em all' tricks.
asciilifeform: ( on costs piece however, spent no fewer than 11h! so asciilifeform is turtle. but sometimes turtle -- outruns achilles? maybe this will be the time? )
asciilifeform: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/trilema/2019-10-23#1947786 << i'd luvv to see an l1 rack in ro, spyked ! keep in mind tho that asciilifeform 'cheats', has long existing experience buying irons, automated filler for rk's, many yrs in salt mines where set up, maintained, racks of irons, networkisms.
asciilifeform: in re time, most of it went into the 1st draft of costs article ; in the rack itself so far spent 3h (5 if including going there and back; 7 if including initial tour & haggle. )
asciilifeform: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/trilema/2019-10-23#1947786 << there was a 295 (u.s. $) deposit at the colo house , but the rest ( will detail in new article ) -- went for iron . ( even if had no rack -- it's time to replenish my depleted stock of iron. )
asciilifeform: r shite hosting in number of places, and nao dun have to..)
asciilifeform: spyked: the flip side of this, is that my rack is ~cheap~. so cheap that my ~post box~ at the post office costs almost half of it . its expense is somewhere b/w my water bill and mains current bill. i picked it up with the knowledge that if i am unable to make satisfactory arrangements to sell space in it to respectable folx, it can indefinitely serve as personal net hosting yacht for asciilifeform (who was paying through the nose fo
