BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: It's going to need the mechanized contact churner Pizarro never got. Even doing this in the reich with cheaper cages and more fiber, the thing has to grow to survive.
asciilifeform: the 1 thing, i suspect, that keeps the show going, is the reich's desire to prevent e.g. ru, cn, from forming own 'arin' and properly splitting off.
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: already purchased another 'octeon' to set up the entrance router + switch for wherever new asciilifeform cage built. and will start by emplacing apu1's & rk's , then anyone who has the courage to put box in heart of reich.
asciilifeform: mp_en_viaje: if we make 'discover working btc-to-usd in middle of fucking reich' part of this problem, will take long time.
snsabot: Logged on 2017-12-07 08:52:36 asciilifeform: http://btcbase.org/log/2017-12-07#1747908 << the 1 law, where 'precedent is whatever we say it is'. sorta like 'in this germany, a jew is he who i say is a jew' in the earlier reich.

asciilifeform: mp_en_viaje: fwiw over here in north reich , they're ~solidly india/paki
asciilifeform always had vaguely positive impression of modern iran. tho possibly simply on acct of its abuse by the reich
snsabot: Logged on 2019-09-25 23:29:24 asciilifeform: nor is there likely ever gonna be any such agreement. use of reich time gotta be made 100% decorative, or to go away entirely.
asciilifeform: nor is there likely ever gonna be any such agreement. use of reich time gotta be made 100% decorative, or to go away entirely.
asciilifeform: because currently no 2 logotrons actually agree on what reich.time it is.
snsabot: Logged on 2019-09-14 15:58:06 asciilifeform: lobbes: in re elderly relatives ( and asciilifeform also has some ) -- if you have the budget, and they're reasonably portable, you can try to evacuate'em. bitter pill, but gotta point out, lotsa folx went to the ovens in prev. reich who otherwise didn't have to, because they did not come up with a timely decisive cut of this knot.

whaack: nothing directly republic related. i've been reminded by reading the recent logs that i'm in the perpetual ill-start-helping-tomorrow state. i always have an excuse for myself: "i'll be increasing noise, im too unedecuated to do shit, i need to become bilingual/get out of reich first, etc. etc"
a111: Logged on 2019-05-17 17:47 asciilifeform: whaack: in your position, i'd focus on getting out of reich 1st; can 'book larnin'' 2nd.
whaack: greetings. following the advice of the lords http://btcbase.org/log/2019-05-17#1914428 and http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/trilema/2019-05-17#1914460 i am getting out of the reich and moving back to CR. I'm going there this weekend for a week to secure a lease, then moving there permanently mid October. This time I'm saying my goodbyes to the meatwot and have secured remote employment so I will not have to set foot in the US aga ☝︎
mircea_popescu: all sorta things "nobody is aware of" in the reich, somehow.
lobbes: s/sucking blood from the reich/*depending on* the reich to suck blood from/
lobbes: (while this lasts, of course. The 'sword of damocle' hangs over ALL of us still sucking blood from the reich, "9-5" or no.)
asciilifeform: girlattorney: there's supposedly a fiber from brazil to portugal, iirc, but still owned by reich-controlled conglomerate afaik.
asciilifeform: when you get out of the reich space, it begins to very much matter where you are vis-a-vis your peer.
asciilifeform: girlattorney: isps in the nato reich seem 'fast' , but only for so long as the connecting peer is also in the reich. connectivity to the free world is rather more limited.
asciilifeform: argentina aint even peculiar in this respect, exactly same q can be asked re usa & the rest of reich
asciilifeform wondered -- on acct of what reich use case, did they actually bother to optimize for ram-filling photo. perhaps spy sats ?
BingoBoingo: Then again if Pedro II was fertile enough to have sufficient children to select 1 not completely retarded heir, Brasil could have been bigger than the US ever was. 1000 year reich and so on.
mircea_popescu: "fake in-reich ip"
asciilifeform: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/trilema/2019-08-25#1931008 << for extra lulz, no e.g. ru in the list. ( and in fact whole list consists of a) nato reich b) quasi-satellites, e.g. brazil/india )
mircea_popescu: lobbes, generally they'll take a renegotiation, but basically... not depending on reich is always better than depending.
mircea_popescu: you're stuck being out of reich for ~6 years or so, but w/e, your republican credit's good.
lobbes: well I wanted to avoid any of the classic 'reich traps'; for e.g. back in MA they have the 'common law marriage' thing (or used to at least)
asciilifeform: ( i.e. pretty fast connection reich <-> reich ; palpably slower piz <-> reich )
asciilifeform: this is why reich propaganda machine tirelessly repeats the line where 'postal, is what you do with rifle, let's fixate on rifle'
asciilifeform: empire of rome detectably 'wanted' to be something like today's reich, aha. didn't have the industrial process to make it stick tho.
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: as mp pointed out on numerous occasions, there is no substantive diff b/w argentina and usa, britain, etc. rest of reich.
asciilifeform: observe, even today's debased piloting, where the man is largely in the cockpit to enter numbers into keypad -- gives , from reich's pov, too much to the man. and hence the ongoing effort to deskill even this profession, mechanize the machine 100% , remove the meat.
asciilifeform: famously peron was overthrown with help of the exactly 2 little jets kurt tank was able to build in argentina. but doubt that today could happen similarly in reich, i suspect that the 'modern' machines will neither take off nor land w/out magic coad from inca satellite.
asciilifeform: in this light, the current reich's all-out investment in aviation (formerly -- of expensive-but-working, today, 'f35' style) actually makes sense.
asciilifeform: i fully expect that reich will at some pt give up on maintaining street signage, and try to push ~this~ as 'replacement'
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: oblig. illust. re 'capital one' chix from era of prev. reich.
asciilifeform: dorion: it's not there against mp_en_viaje & co., either, folx with serious money have ~0 problem moving it. it's there against 'engineer saves 100k and escapes from gulag to live rest of his days without working for reich' etc.
a111: Logged on 2019-07-09 15:41 asciilifeform: PeterL: inside reich, heathen exch houses such that you'd actually want to deal with, are extinct. whereas ones outside generally won't deal with zeks from inside.
asciilifeform: iirc he ended up in reich somewhere
asciilifeform: PeterL: inside reich, heathen exch houses such that you'd actually want to deal with, are extinct. whereas ones outside generally won't deal with zeks from inside. ☟︎
asciilifeform: it's a potentially large, if temporary, buried treasure, for anyone outside reich to collect
asciilifeform: billymg: prolly you already know that in (afaik) erry country colonized by reich, if you walk in to open bank acct in yer human name, and they ask for passport and you pull out usa passport, they will either refuse entirely or make for you an acct that is immediately reported to usg tax ministry for express pillage
billymg: and i'm in the situation of having more spare fiat than i expected to, by way of winning startup tech co stock option lottery. so dumping some of that into property outside the reich, even if not A+ investment, is not something i would stress about
billymg: BingoBoingo: to buy, as that seems like the easiest way to get money out of the reich without raising eyebrows
a111: Logged on 2019-05-13 17:54 lobbes: I've been doing some hard thinking lately, about what I want in life, and about how I'm way too content with my current living situation in the reich. The problem is that man can indeed be content ~anywhere. Nevertheless, I find myself being sucked closer and closer to the intake of the mass chumpatron. My time, my money, my sanity, slowly but surely slipping away with each day
asciilifeform: when Official decree became 'copy from w. reich', all downhill. consider e.g. buran. or the sad pdp clones.
asciilifeform: it's a shared mythology made possible in part by expert propagandists in w. reich , hollywood et al, and by orc's desire to believe in an earthly paradise
asciilifeform: hrusch et al , partook in all of stalin's works, the sexy and the unsexy, and murdered successor, and pinned the 'unsexy' on him, and on the dead emperor, and 'look, western reich, we are civilized folx! let us into miami'
asciilifeform: trinque: management ~success~. contrary to western reich Official histories, stalin in fact terminated the self-licking cone.
asciilifeform: in re kindergarten education, otoh -- typical sovok schoolboy could draw a reasonably-exact map of europe, asia, americas. from memory. when was the time when western reich schoolboy could do this ?
asciilifeform: the last, iirc, western reich item asciilifeform bought that came with schems, was... commodore-64.
asciilifeform: china -- did not buy. which is no small part of on the map there is still today a 'china', and not 37 bantustans or whatever the reich's replacement project would've consisted of
asciilifeform: ( western reich, lulzily, also bought hook, line, and sinker into sovok's internal mythology of contiguity of 1-4 , a patently ridiculous proposition )
asciilifeform: good chunks of which, incidentally, the 'western narrative' bought into -- 'hook, line, and sinker', e.g. the Official nato reich history of stalin era takes hrusch's revisionism at 100% face value
asciilifeform: ( for readers outside of reich -- '401k' is usa's Official national pyramid )
mp_en_viaje: "legal" proceedings in the reich are strictly indistinguishable from the ancient practice of playing with the scape goat. first you feed it. then you put ribbons in its hair. then you kill it and pretend lik
asciilifeform: i.e. loyal servants of reich, exactly like the previous set of derps, or the 'rezistenta prin cultura'(tm)(r) idjits in ro ☝︎
diana_coman: my observation re numbers is that it's not as much whether reich or not but simply whether "public education" as in "for everyone" or not; because if profs are recruited based on need, there will just never be enough really; and the wider the base aka the greater the need, the more chickenhouse, inevitably
asciilifeform: the type of person who thrives in reich academia, is ye olde 'beetle man'.
asciilifeform: anyone still recall the 1990s-era 'reich pgp' where castrated key bitness ?

asciilifeform: noshit. but in ru/cn, so 'doesn't exist' from reich muppet pov.
asciilifeform: meanwhile, in vintage reich lulz: https://archive.is/A46RP
a111: Logged on 2019-05-23 06:10 mp_en_viaje: asciilifeform, that;s nonsense. huawei currnently owns the "smart"phone market. it's their own phone, it's better than the reich phone, etc.
asciilifeform: http://btcbase.org/log/2019-05-23#1915310 << certainly cheaper than crapple, who nao charges ~weight-in-gold for their brick. but afaik, both camps of 'smartpnoje wars' are of chinese iron with reich os. ☝︎
mp_en_viaje: i get it, they don't do (enough) of what you want them to. but they do what they want to, for some reason they decided to go in through the phone hole. and they're in, orcs buy huawei, and declare it better than reich.
mp_en_viaje: asciilifeform, that;s nonsense. huawei currnently owns the "smart"phone market. it's their own phone, it's better than the reich phone, etc. ☟︎
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: afaik all reich designs. near as i can tell, china succumbed to the old sovok disease, where 'let's make reich-compat. chips so that we can use warez'
asciilifeform: iirc recent years' crops of reich.lawyers aren't esp. distinguishable from reich.engineers et al, also 'a lot of time fucking intricately with garbage' and the cultural level of sewer rat
asciilifeform: mp_en_viaje: 'west reich' 100yrs ahead in zombiefication tech vs. 'east', evidently. 'soy salami' there, undreamed of in sovok, and 0 'mass' complaint, importers of genuine food from e.g. europistan struggle , rather than make mega-bank.
asciilifeform: http://btcbase.org/log/2019-05-19#1914714 << to pile on this lulz: afaik that one's actually 1 of the ~least~ scammy carriers in this part of reich ☝︎
mp_en_viaje: in any case, it's not suggested to stay in reich ; the discussion was rather "if you stay". much like advice for diabetics isn't "first, get diabetes", but rather "if you already have diabetes..."
whaack: trinque: i can't say i fully grok the advice, perhaps in part because i can't readily read the linked manual, and bc the advice seems to suggest staying in reich, which directly contradicts the usual guidance given here
a111: Logged on 2019-05-18 17:36 asciilifeform: http://btcbase.org/log/2019-05-18#1914645 << not strictly correct -- consider how cheese, beer, etc. produced. or , in similar vein, how reich got 'phree' 30+yrs of life out of the 'yeast' digesting sovok
asciilifeform: http://btcbase.org/log/2019-05-18#1914645 << not strictly correct -- consider how cheese, beer, etc. produced. or , in similar vein, how reich got 'phree' 30+yrs of life out of the 'yeast' digesting sovok ☝︎☟︎
asciilifeform: right. so per this extended model, even tho on paper broker 'breaks even', he is still chump, as e.g. lives in reich where usg can steal his brick castle on a whim
asciilifeform: whaack: if yer making piles and piles o'dough in reich, and ~very~ disciplined, it can theoretically be a thing to do, save it up an' buy a block of flats in BingoBoingostan or similar. but i hesitate to recommend to anyone to sit in reich a single day longer than can be helped
asciilifeform: 'cs education' is, believe, 9000x easier, than to try an' escape reich as old man
asciilifeform: whaack: in your position, i'd focus on getting out of reich 1st; can 'book larnin'' 2nd. ☟︎
mp_en_viaje: this is not coincidental ; nor is it yesterday or yesteryear vintage (which latest circumstance is prolly least happy re reich prospects)
asciilifeform: http://btcbase.org/log/2019-05-14#1913306 << diana_coman : the thing typical 'sausage emigre' dun realize, is that in reich there is not only cardboard sausage, but ~cardboard people~ ☝︎

mp_en_viaje: in the end, it's an all-in bet on reich stability. like everyone else in there.
a111: Logged on 2019-05-13 03:49 asciilifeform: arguably it comes down to a stupid choice of profession. the software pseudo-industry only really exists in the reich + its tendrils, afaik.

asciilifeform: billymg: it's very simple -- money. i work for living, and have never done it anywhere other than in the reich, 'meatwot' is there.
billymg: asciilifeform: if you don't mind me asking -- in that thread you made a good case for leaving the reich as soon as possible, but i've also seen threads (can't find right now) where others in the channel have tried to convince you of the same, without any luck
asciilifeform: http://btcbase.org/log/2019-05-11#1912525 << burning yer benjies in fireplace, is also better investment than reich 'real estate'. observe that no one ever ended up in debt slavery from burning in fireplace. ☝︎
a111: Logged on 2018-03-29 16:48 mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes buying real estate in the reich without an army ?
asciilifeform: soon enuff i expect cisco will be Officially mandatory in all reich telecom , like at&t gear once was pre-divestiture
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: 'phree gift' from reich invariably comes with 'and we get to appoint a harvard grad as yer minister of health' etc
a111: Logged on 2019-04-23 18:13 asciilifeform: tbf normally reich subject needs visa for moscow ( i dun know how, precisely, s got around this on moment's notice )
asciilifeform: revisiting upstack , the 1801 docs, pretty interesting document from 'techno-political' pov actually -- there does not exist a description like this (operation AND internals) for any reich cpu ever sold. certainly not as a vendor document under 1 cover (not speaking here of ad-hoc reversed tidbits) ☝︎
BingoBoingo: I'm just suggesting that the trending reich might be shifting to the other one.
