mjr___: feel free to play around
mjr___: i don't mind
mod6: And so far the Edit button gives a stack trace.
mjr___: right now i am getting basic functionality up and running
mjr___: yes, it does
mod6: I just thought I'd take a look, I saw you talkin about it earlier.
mjr___: this is the most basic version
mjr___: next i split into bids and asks
mjr___: get socket.io running
mjr___: so that all changes happen in real time
mod6: Cool. I hear you, gotta get some time to see what works inititally, etc.
mjr___: and then put in an angular front end
mjr___: yeah, but it doesn't make a difference
mjr___: i am using nodemon
mjr___: so all my changes auto update

mjr___: well, i am trying to do a hackathon attempt
mjr___: to have this up by monday
mjr___: and i have a rough wirefram mockup too...http://imgur.com/nu1YoOh

Chaang-Noi: mp well they are not forced to wear top hats but he did get a limo and the point is to be a show off
Chaang-Noi: i did exagerate that a bit
truff1es: "There are now 6 paid admissions to the summit, and all of them are for a physical stay."
Chaang-Noi: but it just seemed fitting for the style he is going for
Chaang-Noi: the first 3 qare his staff

Chaang-Noi: and they are all new people who are in the area who want to learn more about btc

truff1es: node Noun
truff1es: A point at which lines or pathways intersect or branch; a central or connecting point.
truff1es: A piece of equipment, such as a PC or peripheral, attached to a network.
mircea_popescu: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=192122.msg2030167#msg2030167 lmao
truff1es: seems like rpietila aims to make btc an exclusive thing, dont like
truff1es: (Without almost a single exception) every time I read MPOE-PR, I think, "but he cannot be, if he actually pays for this shit to be posted in his name". >>> sick burn
Chaang-Noi: inaba is about as good with pr as your girl...
mircea_popescu: lol
mircea_popescu: not really.
mircea_popescu: actually i don't know anyone nearly as good as her on those forums.
Chaang-Noi: for pr?
mircea_popescu: perhaps gavin, but only on the condition that he keeps quiet a lot on most issues. ☟︎
mircea_popescu: yes for pr.
Chaang-Noi: well to each thier own, imo they both do more hard to the image of the company they work for
Chaang-Noi: harm*
mircea_popescu: pr is about communication, you must be confusing it with advertising ?
Chaang-Noi: public relations, yes clearly there is communication, but you communicate ideas, the ideas she communicates are not what i would considrer to be good
Chaang-Noi: inaba same
Chaang-Noi: as in not good for the image of the company she represents and is speaking for
Chaang-Noi: when she has the PR tag she is your face to the world
Chaang-Noi: people see her, and judge you and your company
mircea_popescu: yeah. exactly.
mircea_popescu: the difference here would be that inaba never gave a strauight answer, has been caught lieing etc.
Chaang-Noi: they dont take her siourly, and so they dont take you either
mircea_popescu: mpoe-pr has given nothing but straight answers, and has alweays been right.
truff1es: Chaang-Noi have u read trilema, they dont care lol
mircea_popescu: seems to me quite a difference there.
mircea_popescu: i beg to differ.
Chaang-Noi: yes there is a differance between her and inaba, but just cuz inaba is fail does not mean your pr girl is good
mircea_popescu: she's probably the only one there taken quite seriously.
Chaang-Noi: by whom?
Chaang-Noi: she is one of the mostly highly ignored people
mircea_popescu: everyone. when she drops the shoe the entire dev team gets cracking for one.
cads: mircea_popescu: re. the showing off, I've often wondered about that myself.
mircea_popescu: eh right, like that matters.
mircea_popescu: cads aha ?
Chaang-Noi: placing someone on ignore does not = respect
Chaang-Noi: but what truffles said, it does seem you guys just dont give a fuck
truff1es: yea mp take me off ignore!
cads: In america, when someone shows off they tend to be an asshole. Keeping your cards close to your chest is often a better social move here, because showing off invites open ridicule.
assbot: [BTCTC] [ASICMINER-PT] 1 @ 1.2189 BTC [-]
mircea_popescu: truffles is of course on my ignore, so yeah.
cads: From my personal experience, for example, when Romanians show off in front of Americans, at best they tend to be perceived as lovable assholes. The fact that many romanians tend to show off only they can back it with something tangible helps in establishing relationships between americans and romanians, but there is often a secret distaste.
Chaang-Noi: yeah showing off in thailand is so much different than showing off in the usa
mircea_popescu: cads where's the romanians spring up from ?!
cads: I'm romanian, hah
mircea_popescu: a lol ok.
Chaang-Noi: wow 2/3rd of this conversation is romainian :)
mircea_popescu: anyway, the problem is mistaken socialisation. the average american can not simply go talk to a woman.
truff1es: "lovable assholes" is there such a thing
mircea_popescu: they have weirdo protestant issues.
assbot: [BTCTC] [ASICMINER-PT] 1 @ 1.219 BTC [+]
Chaang-Noi: i ahve no problem with your girl being a girl, that is not it at all lol
mircea_popescu: no, we were discussing his showoff thing.
Chaang-Noi: inaba?
mircea_popescu: i thought the mpoe-pr discussion is over, as in, sigh.
Chaang-Noi: reptilla?
truff1es: they switched topics
assbot: [BTCTC] [ASICMINER-PT] 2 @ 1.22 = 2.44 BTC [+]
mircea_popescu: are you ignoring cads or something ?
cads: mircea_popescu: yep. And they're also very guarded about their real capabilities, so for example, whereas a romanian might be happy to brag about how little he payed on a car if you ask, asking an american the same question is often a faux pas.
truff1es: romanians showing off = lovable assholes
Chaang-Noi: im multy tasking, sorry, im sure the fail is on my end
mircea_popescu: eh faux pas my foot.
mircea_popescu: i submit that taking this retarded childrengarten bullshit into consideration is empowering the mental disease.
mircea_popescu: it's not a faux pas and if johnny thinks so let him go in a corner and sulk
Chaang-Noi: in thailand if you ahve money you are expected to show off
Chaang-Noi: people pay 4 times the normal price of a car (cuz taxes) just so they can show off
mircea_popescu: lol
cads: hehe
cads: nice!
Chaang-Noi: people respect things ehre more than people and idea
mircea_popescu: nobody can just be normal it seems ;/
Chaang-Noi: its not how smart your brain is, but how smart you are dressed that matters
truff1es: Chaang-Noi ask mp to define normal
Chaang-Noi: mp truffles wants to know what "normal" means
cads: mircea_popescu: for salaried upper middle class workers in romania, what is the normal attitude towards revealing their exact salary figure to their coworkers?
Chaang-Noi: ah wage slaves
mircea_popescu: cads i have no idea tbh.

cads: Say I receive $100K a year, and I suspect that this is $20K more than the rest of my coworkers in the same position as me, because I'm more skilled. Would it be something I'd brag about?
Chaang-Noi: i dont think mp knows many wage slaves
cads: hehe, perhaps not
mircea_popescu: yeah i tend to not hire romanians
mircea_popescu: anyway, as far as salaries go about 7k a year pre tax would be an average salary.
mircea_popescu: i don't see where exactly you'd be making 100k a year and have coworkers in the same office making 80.
mircea_popescu: senior tv execs working for the main network make 15 or some shit
Chaang-Noi: do most people speak english in romania?
Chaang-Noi: sounds like a fun place to visit
mircea_popescu: senior corporate officers in state entreprises make something like 15-20k and they're talking of introducing a tax just for them to lower that.
cads: mircea_popescu: this is common here in upper management in mid to large scale businesses. My understanding is that when the amounts of money are that large, it becomes profitable to remain private about them. People say "I got the raise!" but don't say how much the raise was.
mircea_popescu: Chaang-Noi the younger kids mostly do, about half pretty well about half so-so

cads: truff1es: I mean, some people are so incoherent in their opinions that I get the distinct feeling that I'm _stupider_ after arguing with them, and if these people consistently attack my positions with poor argument tactics, then I have little to gain from them in way of exchange of ideas, and I ignore them.
truff1es: hmmmm
truff1es: then u ask for clarification
truff1es: information is what you make of it
cads: truff1es: information from a random variable is what you make of it, true, but if the variable is too random, it's impossible to make knowledge from it, however hard you try :D
truff1es: hence why its best to seek clarification
truff1es: cant really do that through ignore
cads: truffles, lets put it this way. Consider you talk to 10 people online, and you know that 9 of those people tend to say things that you fine useful, some of the time. But now imagine that the 10th person not only says things that are useless, they also try to mislead you, and they drown out the reasonable words of the other 9 people.
cads: And suppose that after extensive attempts at asking for clarification, the person continues to demonstrate that they do not have your interest in mind - they continue to BS you, and what's worse, arguing with them makes you look like a fool in front of the other 9 people.
truff1es: they also try to mislead you, and they drown out the reasonable words of the other 9 people.>>> this needs clarification
cads: truff1es: sure, let me clarify with an example. 9 people are decent people interested in talking about the topic, and the 10th person is just a troll, interested in ridiculing anyone that gives them attention. Say they are flooding the channel, and there are no ops, and you're being distracted from your other 9 contemporaries.
truff1es: ok.. but id assume spam gets boot
cads: would you not ignore the offensive charachter? Or would you force yourself to take cognitive loss, and manually take the time filter out the useless chatter?
assbot: [BTCTC] [BTC-BOND] 100 @ 0.01 = 1 BTC [-]
assbot: [BTCTC] [BTC-BOND] 100 @ 0.01 = 1 BTC [-]
cads: truff1es: giving yourself a cognitive advantage by ignoring the poor information source is a good strategy in these situations - it's not weakness, it's prudence.
truff1es: i would disagree that although these 9 people are coherent it does not imply they hold your best interest, information is for me to filter so i wouldnt see the need to ignore..

This is the same as ignoring every single member of 4chan.

cads: that was uncharitable, but I hope you get my drift - ignoring someone is just one of the many ways of filtering your information input
truff1es: i like to read but you have to learn to skim :p
cads: I believe that you simply assign a negative emotional connotation towards it because you've been at the blunt end of an ignore or two, and you know how much that stings
truff1es: i havent been on irc in a while afaik i dont get ignored much
truff1es: mp is just an asshole and ran from a debate imo
truff1es: filtering is a philosophy not based on emotional reactions..
cads: I would agree there

assbot: [BTCTC] [CRYPTO-TRADE] 1 @ 0.19794 BTC [+]
truff1es: can you restate that
cads: truff1es: If I ignore someone in a chat, they can still see what I'm saying. So it's not the same thing as leaving the chat. Ignore can be used to assert a sort of dominance.
truff1es: heh
truff1es: mp tries
cads: truff1es: In other words, ignore actually can be used as an asshole strategy. is that part of your argument against the desirability of ignore?
cads: I would argue that I have used ignore judiciously many times... but I'd also admit that I've used it a few times in a mean spirit.
cads: *shrug*, in any case, we could philosophize about this all day
truff1es: yep
cads: any closing words?
cads: it's time to cook some breakfast and get started with the day here :D

mircea_popescu: it's a start.

mircea_popescu: you KNEW he was dealing ?

mircea_popescu: cads by the time you give it the site title and two words from the page title and it finds two pages on that site w/o the words in them...
assbot: [BTCTC] [TAT.ASICMINER] 10 @ 0.0126 = 0.126 BTC [+]
mircea_popescu: kakobrekla you know my browser is anon.
cads: perhaps an incentive structure that doesn't force the search engine firm to degrade its search quality in return for profits
kakobrekla: mircea_popescu they only correct way
mircea_popescu: cads that's only going to happen once we make marketing illegal.
mircea_popescu: i don't understand why rape is illegal and marketing is not ffs.
mircea_popescu: the other way around would make for a better world even.
cads: Haha, trading the maiden-hood for the consumer good.
cads: you may be right, strictly speaking - the problem is that people have not yet understood that marketing equals coercion
mircea_popescu: but i mean, what, they put up signs and what, i have to "Deal with it" ?
mircea_popescu: why doesn't the rape victim "Deal with it" while all the marketing bullshit is punished by 20 to life.
cads: hah, mircea, for someone with such a pretty mouth you sure are courageous to unleash rape on the world
cads: legal rape would still be abhorrent
mircea_popescu: legal marketing is even more abhorrent
cads: hehe, and pardon my joke
mircea_popescu: actually ima write this up, the similarities line up all too well.
cads: mircea_popescu: I would be forced to agree, though in your writeup consider that you are a parent with a daughter. You live in a world where the collapse of the viability of marketing strategies has lead to an unprecedented increase in the productivity and quality of life, on average. And all that you've had to pay is that your daughter got raped 6 times while she was growing up, starting at the age of 6, with her teacher, 9 with a boy
cads: in the town, 11 with a janitor, and so on. You did not have legal resource in these situations, and the 2 men that you secretly had killed, they could put you in jail from beyond the grave if you are discovered. You live in a world of unprecedented prosperity, where vigilantism is prohibited.
cads: is this is acceptable from this peasant father perspective?
mircea_popescu: you know this is exactly how women got pregnant for most of human history ?
mircea_popescu: and when i say most i don't mean 51%. i mean 99.9999addnines%
cads: granted, and it's also how most animals get pregnant
mircea_popescu: for that matter, if your putative daughter gets raped today your practical recourse is
mircea_popescu: ;;google that russian guy who went on a rampage cause they raped his daughter

cads: mircea_popescu, you know sexual molestation is not only prevalent among females, but also among males. We are truly animals when we allow ourselves to be, and who can estimate the lost productivity due to the social and psychological handicaps imposed by such scarring episodes of violence?

cads: it is perhaps true that if society accepted it the negative impact per rape victim would go down, but the net effect would be negative almost surely, since the new rape-rate equilibrium would be immense
cads: and yet still probably cheaper than the loss due to marketing and irrational consumerism, hah.
mircea_popescu: indeed.
mircea_popescu: i am not arguing rape is good
mircea_popescu: i am arguing rape is bad and marketing is way worse.
kakobrekla: seriously argentina?
cads: also rape can be good if she asks for it in that certain way :)

cads: certainly the men felt that the would not have to answer to rape charges due to the nature of the sex play situation, and she never filed charges, and seems to have chalked it up as "just one of those things"
kakobrekla: does she still want to be tied up?

cads: but she's getting married now, sadly :D
kakobrekla: not so smart mathematitican then
cads: haha, if you were a mathematician you'd know just how stupid we are
cads: I once spent 5 hours arguing with her that transfinite ordinals are no obviously inconsistent, against her objections
cads: and then we went to bed, and the next morning she was up proving the basic properties of transfinite ordinals
kakobrekla: hehe
cads: and had made me pankakes and written "you were right" in whipped cream

mircea_popescu: nono
mircea_popescu: i mean, the intermediate cardinal
mircea_popescu: between naturals and reals.
cads: haha, we never did talk about the continuum hypothesis
mircea_popescu: but that'd have been the end of your debate
mircea_popescu: here, there's an extra infinite.
cads: we got to isomorphism classes between ordered set, and I tried at long length to motivate that the real numbers were not countable, and she kept coming up with silly schemes to try to count them, because to her, at the time, it was absolutely absurd for there two be two infinite sets with qualitatively different amounts of infiniteness
mircea_popescu: um
mircea_popescu: that's easily provable tho neh ? cantor's countability trick
mircea_popescu: sort out all the numbers then show you can make one which is distinct from each on a different digit
mircea_popescu: by "easily provable" i mean easily showable to the intuitive approach
cads: yep, suppose that C_k : N -> R is a counting of the real numbers, then there exists a number x_k such that x_k is not in the image of C_k
cads: x_k is easy to construct for any possible C_k
mircea_popescu: ya but it helps if you actually list them out

mircea_popescu: alternatively of course, she could have proven the continuum, thus proving frankel set theory incorrect,which is also good enough
mircea_popescu: either way, either by producing a counter example or by actually showing the hyptothesis to be correct
mircea_popescu: and by incorrect i mean inconsistenty
cads: it was strange, like a cognitive blindspot - I tried what you suggest, and a few other approaches that I invented just during that conversation (which have been useful in similar situation). I lost a lot of faith in her as a mathematician, but regained it in the morning - she was chattering like a bluejay about how she now sees why she was wrong in her reasoning and why I was right: her intuition was that you can't just infinitely exte
cads: nd C_k to C_k', and for some reason just wasn't getting that _forall_ C_k there is an x_k, and that even any C_k' that she could concoct would also have its own fatal x_k'.
mircea_popescu: lol
cads: mircea_popescu: now wouldn't that have been a sight? two stoned college math students, disproving ZFC
mircea_popescu: freud would have been happy
mircea_popescu: "see ? woman brain!"
mircea_popescu: schopenhauer even happier.
mircea_popescu: in his gloomy way.
cads: to her credit, her area was in the statistics of neuronal bursting in biological neural networks, and for some god awful reason, basic logic courses at our university do _not_ adequately introduce foundational issues such as ordinals or even set theory as an axiomatic topic
mircea_popescu: anyway, it is my considered opinion (along with, i wager, most everyone else's) that positively the ONLY way that's getting show to be inconsistent is
mircea_popescu: by some intoxicated kids during having sex or somesuch
mircea_popescu: everything else was tried to death.
cads: it's like, naive set theory without talking about the axiom of choice, or the axiom of infinity, or the implications.. part of the reason I recently dropped out - if this is what the undergraduate math degree means here, I'm not interested in it
cads: mircea_popescu: haha, you may be on to something
cads: maybe she was on to the truth and I squelched her breakthrough!
mircea_popescu: feelbad.gif
cads: I stopped hanging out with her to get sober and start hanging out with a vocalist/painter, and then a year later I found she's engaged - I wonder if she knows I still have sentiment.. it's not something I thought I had
mircea_popescu: well did you tell her ?
cads: not at the time, and not since I heard she was settling down - I was muddled up back then, and more recently I figured she has a chance at happiness with her guy, and have wished that to her.
zebedee_: Chaaang-Noi: I'll buy some THB from you for BTC if you're in a bad way.
mircea_popescu: stop being such a fag and tell the girl.
zebedee_: Gotta pay for my fun somehow.
cads: It's not a longing sentiment, since we had our issues, and she's still a toker, and I still am sober, thought you're probably right, it would not hurt her to know that I marvel and take joy in the high points of our relationship
mircea_popescu: for the record, i never met a sane mathematician who was any good.
mircea_popescu: if you had a business head on your shoulders as good as mine, you'd start a special slush fgund about now
mircea_popescu: and when her current relationship implodes you can bridge her for half a year on rent and food while she sucks your cock and figures out what next.
assbot: [BTCTC] [ASICMINER-PT] 1 @ 1.249999 BTC [-]
cads: brilliant strategery
mircea_popescu: you can even tell her this when it happens and she's all confused, "honey... here's a chatlog"
mircea_popescu: zebedee_ pix ?
cads: you're talking to someone that just a year ago found the idea of leverage very exotic, and just 6 months ago was aghast to find out that his financial position has sickeningly leveraged re. his student loans, and decided to put his schooling on panic crash
cads: haha, for me to set aside a slush fund just for women, now that would be bold
mircea_popescu: lol well... not ghood ideas are practical.
cads: but not hard at all, and a fun exercise in personal wealth management
zebedee_: pix? Meeting Goat on Tuesday.
zebedee_: Nothing wrong with enjoying getting tied up. I like both ends myself.
zebedee_: http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7046/6855106703_844f08ffbd_z.jpg I've had shibari lessons from this dude.
mircea_popescu: i never took lessosn
zebedee_: Definitely helps; Japanese are the best IMO.
mircea_popescu: helps what tho ?
zebedee_: There's skill in a) safety (quick release, avoiding pressure in bad areas etc). and b) aesthetics
zebedee_: I've seen others and there's a lot lacking, to my eyes at least.
mircea_popescu: safety is unrelated tho, it's just a study of anatomy. can learn it a thousand different ways.
mircea_popescu: and i guess my motivation is not aesthetical.
mircea_popescu: or if it is, it's personal rather than cultural. i couldn't care less what some japanese dude finds beautiful.
Chaaang-Noi: zebedee_ im not in a bad way but i could buy some thai baht, you in thailand?
zebedee_: Oh I thought you had too many. I don't have any.
zebedee_: Will be on Tuesday as discussed.
Chaaang-Noi: oh right, sorry, did not even register :)
zebedee_: lol
zebedee_: You wanna sell THB? If not I'll just dump some JPY notes.
Chaaang-Noi: some guy wants to meet me to sell 30,000 thai baht for btc wheni go
Chaaang-Noi: you want to buy more btc
Chaaang-Noi: ?
zebedee_: No I want THB. I'm indifferent to dropping some BTC or JPY.
Chaaang-Noi: oh right, sorry, i did not read that collectly
zebedee_: If you want to sell THB then I'll buy some off you. If you don't it's cool.
Chaaang-Noi: yeah ill sell you thai baht
Chaaang-Noi: how much are you looking for?
zebedee_: OK. About $1k equivalent, so perhaps 30k THB.
Chaaang-Noi: yeah thats cool
Chaaang-Noi: there is a guy who is going to meet me in bkk with 30,000 thb to buy btc so this should work out perfectly
zebedee_: OK. Let's call it 25k for now.

copumpkin: I accidentally smoked a bit in Budapest
copumpkin: and found out that it's a big no-no
copumpkin: I crossed the Hungary/Croatia border with a little bit of weed and that's apparently a big source of international tension with Hungary, because Hungary is super hardcore about drugs and will throw you in jail for 15 years without a trial for 5, and quite a few foreigners are in that situation
Chaaang-Noi: using drugs in thailand is fine
Chaaang-Noi: selling or traficing is a big no no
copumpkin: ah, okay
Chaaang-Noi: the police and army sell and trafic here so its harsh punsihment
Chaaang-Noi: however they dont care if you buy and use their products
copumpkin: for competing with them? :P
Chaaang-Noi: yeah, they will kill you on site if you are thai
Chaaang-Noi: no shit
copumpkin: wow
Chaaang-Noi: if you are not paying the right guy you are good as dead if caught
Chaaang-Noi: if not dead then 15 years in jail or so
Chaaang-Noi: buying your way out is millions of baht
Chaaang-Noi: but really a farang smoking a joint, they dont give a fuck

copumpkin: lol, did lots of that
copumpkin: but hungary is particularly bad
copumpkin: should've just finished it off in croatia
copumpkin: I bought it legally in amsterdam, had most of it, and then forgot about it until I got to slovenia
Chaaang-Noi: i want to travel europe like that
copumpkin: I got one of those rail passes
copumpkin: it was great
Chaaang-Noi: i dont know anyone to go with
copumpkin: very spontaneous travel with my gf for over a month
Chaaang-Noi: yeah that would be cool
copumpkin: we'd just say "oh, that train looks cool" and hop on
Chaaang-Noi: but my wife will have a hard time getting visa i bet cuz she is thai
copumpkin: yeah :/ it might still be possible, not sure how hard
Chaaang-Noi: yeah
copumpkin: lots of foreigners get those rail passes
copumpkin: they actually have different ones for non-EU citizens
copumpkin: annoyingly different price structures but not significantly different levels
Chaaang-Noi: money would not be the issue, it would be the visas
copumpkin: so I had to buy a new pass in the middle of the trip because I got the EU one
Chaaang-Noi: oh that sucks
copumpkin: yeah, not terrible though
copumpkin: anyway, definitely recommended
copumpkin: some countries are more annoying about letting you use it, but it was still mostly a win
Chaaang-Noi: id love to do it, but think it would suck if i did it alone
copumpkin: I'm not sure it would suck, but if you have a SO it would be kind of weird not to do it with them :)
copumpkin: I think traveling alone and meeting cool people in hostels is also fun
Chaaang-Noi: im not as out going as you might think :)

mircea_popescu: In 2000, economist and former U.S. Treasury Secretary Lawrence Summers became president of Harvard. Soon after, Summers held a private meeting with West, where he reportedly rebuked West for missing too many classes, contributing to grade inflation, neglecting serious scholarship, and spending too much time on his economically profitable projects. Summers reportedly suggested that West produce an academic book befittin
mircea_popescu: g his professorial position, as his recent output had consisted primarily of co-written and edited volumes. According to some reports, Summers also objected to West's production of a CD, the critically panned Sketches of My Culture, and to his political campaigning, including an alleged three weeks to promote Bill Bradley's presidential campaign.
mircea_popescu: black guy of no academic value whatsoever gets told off by harvard president
mircea_popescu: harvard president is forced to step down within a year over having said women are maybe not quite as smart as men
cads: mircea_popescu: I have the same issue - I followed a bunch of people because they said something cool once or twice about category theory, haskell, or 3d printing, and the rest is all stuff about how their cat is awesome

kakobrekla: orkaa [on this chan] has lots of gay friends and he did a pool
kakobrekla: poll
kakobrekla: maybe he did a pool too
cads: hmm, It's an interesting problem. Given some number k of incomplete logs, collected by different people, with different latencies, and hence different orders of message arrival in general, how do you fuse the logs into a single log that has more accurate information?
jurov: actually pool might work better
cads: if k is a large number, you can try to find voting blocs - groups of logs that agree on the same history
kakobrekla: cads you disregard accuaracy and thats it
kakobrekla: also disregard my grammer skillz

cads: kakobrekla: the "vitamins" needed to put together a 3d printer - steppers, controllers, RAMP board, and linear actuators - are only around $300. As soon as your mill is up and running with a mill head, you could fabricate the parts for a 3d printer kit fairly easily.
kakobrekla: i already have steppers and cotrollers and all that shit
kakobrekla: 12nm each btw
kakobrekla: overkill :)
kakobrekla: and there are two for x axis
cads: The 3dp community advises against 3d printer/mill hybrids. A mill needs torque and stiffness, while a 3d printer needs lightness and feed speeds - they use speeds that are rather shocking to people used to traditional mills
kakobrekla: myea
cads: so a mill/printer hybrid will perform poorly at least one task :D
kakobrekla: well i can switch the gap on the rod that steppers move
kakobrekla: and that changes speed/power ratio as well
kakobrekla: what do even rather than any of that, sell it as is
kakobrekla: :)
cads: haha, how much?
kakobrekla: dunno gimme an offer

cads: they worked their ASSES off to make personal desktop manufacturing remotely feasible, and those high capital jackals are waiting for the market to mature so they can pounce.
cads: the worst part is that if you talk to the open 3dp community about setting up defensive publications, they're all like "heck naw. ain't gonna be no centralized IP control on open 3dp tech"
cads: or, "you have any idea how much it costs to file patents?"
asciilifeform: cads: the way I understand it, the main virtue of 3d printing is that you can build the thing in your basement out of junkyard parts and not give a rat's arse about patents or copyrights.

mircea_popescu: "The AR is one of the few rifle designs where you could even think about using a lower receiver made out of plastic."
mircea_popescu: this is such bs.
mircea_popescu: you know i appreciate the sentiment of calling out business insider et al for their ignorance, which is patent and outrageous
mircea_popescu: but locklin doesn't strike me as much better honestly.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: it may help to know that the focus on the AR is solely because of a weird quirk of U.S. law
mircea_popescu: no, i just mean the bad science of it
asciilifeform: in the U.S., the part which legally counts as "the gun" is the piece with the serial number on it.
mircea_popescu: he upper receiver of the AR-15 is legally the gun, and a plastic version would melt if it didn’t dissolve from mechanical stress the first time you fired it.
mircea_popescu: either he has no idea what plastic is or he's just following some script.
asciilifeform: so you can buy the entire metal portion of a Glock, for example (barrel and striker mechanism) with no paperwork, as if it were a video card. because the SN is stamped on an aluminum plate embedded in the lower, plastic portion.
mircea_popescu: you can in fact produce polymers of any arbitrary hardness, however you define it.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: find me a polymer which can be used to produce a barrel reliably firing modern calibers. I know people who will pay very serious moneys for such.
asciilifeform: hardness is not the only issue. (temperature is another.)
inhies: hrm
inhies: my AR lowers are legally the gun, since thats where the serial number is :p
inhies: guess it all depends on where you get parts
asciilifeform: inhies: exactly. hence the 3d printer folks interest in the AR.
mircea_popescu: think of glock's nylon derivatives
mircea_popescu: also, plenty of non-plasticizing composites may well work in the 3d printer model.
asciilifeform: for those who have never seen an AR, the "lower" is simply a small can which holds the trigger/hammer mechanism, with the stock screwing into one end and the bold carrier/barrel assembly (known as the "upper") into the other end.
asciilifeform: people have carved AR lowers out of kitchen cutting boards, for instance. and even wood.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: if you can produce a polymer which reliably stays in one piece in the form of a rifled barrel, you can become a far, far richer man than you already are.
mircea_popescu: dude i'm certain it can be done.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: done, yes. consider aerogel. economically, no.
mircea_popescu: dissolve my foot.
mircea_popescu: economically was never the point.
mircea_popescu: hence my comment on bad science
asciilifeform: 3d printers are being touted by idiots as "we can now produce modern arms in our basement without knowing any machining." which is patently false, and is likely to remain so.
mircea_popescu: actually! here's a blueprint : i bet you can get a formulation of some sort of carbide, maybe even tungsten base, to dissolve in a solvent that evaporates at room temeprature
asciilifeform: metalworking isn't hard, but it does require some skill.
mircea_popescu: so you will be able to ACTUALLY print a harder-than-steel barel witha good 3d printer
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: yes, sintering. even in the USSR, they had it.
mircea_popescu: right ?
mircea_popescu: so then wtf is locklin on about
asciilifeform: only problem is, sintered materials are brittle
mircea_popescu: you don't fight bad science with bad science
asciilifeform: a barrel flexes (watch an AK on full auto on youtube, high speed camera. 4-5 cm of flex, like a Slinky.)
mircea_popescu: dude, let's make a pistorl

mircea_popescu: before you make a TOW 6 barrel double rotating machine gun
asciilifeform: if all you want is 17th century tech, you can easily make single-shot pistol or shotgun from hardware store pipes. and it will be far more reliable (and deadly to the enemy, vs. the user) than anything you can get out of a $3k 3d printer.
mircea_popescu: and brittleness doesn't sound undefeasible either. maybe you add some guar gum or some shit

mircea_popescu: carbides melt now ?
asciilifeform: did you really suggest guar gum or the like?
mircea_popescu: i was making a point!
assbot: [BTCTC] [ASICMINER-PT] 1 @ 1.249999 BTC [+]
mircea_popescu: as in, it's extremely unlikely you won't find a debrittleing additive
asciilifeform: if you don't need many shots, even this works: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leather_cannon
asciilifeform: my point wasn't that it is physically impossible to make small arms out of garbage (it is possible) but that a 3d printer gains you nothing compared to using parts straight from the junkyard.
truff1es: cads id like to read your blog, do link
mircea_popescu: it does gain you something.
mircea_popescu: at the very least the cool of it.
mircea_popescu: further, if my carbide solution actually works any, you could be making the guns as fast as you fire them for instance
mircea_popescu: imagine a remote opperated batter of gun printers and robofirers
asciilifeform: btw, I personally have a design for a 3d printer which prints solid steel. think "TIG welder" plus XYZ frame. but this would be ruinously expensive to run, and would burn down the house of the first idiot who builds on in his garage. so, unpublished.
truff1es: cads u seem like an intellectual who has succumbed to wordly distractions, its a shame youve given up on uni but gl nonetheless
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: if you want to go the whole hog, dispense with cartridges. fire nails or ball bearings, with injected gasoline for the propellant.
mircea_popescu: " If he just wanted to make a working gun out of a barrel and bolt, he could have done so with duct tape, modeling clay and superglue."
mircea_popescu: again, this point is correct.
mircea_popescu: but the foregoing statements are both incorrect and misleading.
asciilifeform: contrary to popular delusion, the fist of the State will come down in the future not on guns, but on ammunition.
truff1es: why
asciilifeform: producing crude but working small arms is trivial. modern ammunition, not so much.
mircea_popescu: " Solid printers can make crude unassembled plastic parts; nothing else. No electronics can be made in this way."
mircea_popescu: again, this is fuckwittery.
mircea_popescu: all electronics are made in this way
asciilifeform: I can see the political virtues of reviving the skills of building 18th century muskets, but 3d printers aren't usefully in the mix.
mircea_popescu: chips are lierally printed
mircea_popescu: and then the pcbs are mounted by machine
mircea_popescu: this guy is incredibly ignorant and wilfully so.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: do you own a chip fab? does it fit in your house? why, or why not? using the term "printing" for photomask fabrication is disingenuous.
mircea_popescu: why ?
mircea_popescu: the early printers didn't fit in my jhouse
mircea_popescu: nor the early computers
asciilifeform: astronomical tooling cost
mircea_popescu: note that i dispute the "can not" claim
mircea_popescu: i do not make the "can" claim.
mircea_popescu: again, if we protest scientific ignorance of journos
mircea_popescu: let's not demonstrate it one knot up the river.
asciilifeform: btw, I am personally researching a means for fabricating 1980s-level VLSI in "bush conditions." No prizes for guessing why. But I cannot promise that anything will come of it.
mircea_popescu: bush condition means no metal ?
asciilifeform: meaning a plebe's budget.
mircea_popescu: a
mircea_popescu: hm
mircea_popescu: i'd bet against it.
asciilifeform: smart money bets against, yes.
mircea_popescu: no but i mean... you will need a laser.
asciilifeform: although I do have access to university surplus lab junk.
mircea_popescu: and very high precision controls for moving it
asciilifeform: SAW resonator
asciilifeform: Kerr cell for toggling
mircea_popescu: um
benkay: whoa
mircea_popescu: can you acrtually fabricate silicon with resonance without having very specially made foundry silicon ?
mircea_popescu: as in, won't it just crack ?
asciilifeform: no, you get the SAWs from the uni junkyard
mircea_popescu: ok, but do what with them lol
asciilifeform: alternatively, DLP arrays from consumer video projectors
asciilifeform: (granted the latter gives you LSI at best, 1970s level)

asciilifeform: jurov: I'm looking into copper oxide
asciilifeform: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk%3AJulius_Edgar_Lilienfeld
asciilifeform: "in 1995 R. G. Arns found a 1948 legal deposition by Johnson which said the opposite: that Bell Labs back then had a project to test Lilienfeld's transistors, and before Johnson took over the project,"
asciilifeform: "...a paper, JVST A Volume 20, Issue 4, pp. 1365-1368 describing transistors made with anodized aluminum gate insulator and a chemical bath deposited semiconductor (CdS/CdSe). Both are techniques that do not require complicated equipment (beaker, current source, heater) and should have been accessible in the 1920s."
asciilifeform: TLDR: an obscure German fellow almost certainly had working transistors in the '20s.
truff1es: did he get credit
asciilifeform: truffles: not really.
truff1es: unlucky
asciilifeform: although Bell Labs was denied the patent on the basis of his prior art.
truff1es: easiest way to steal ideas, work at patent office it seems
asciilifeform: granted, there is quite a leap from Lilienfeld's cupric oxide transistor to kitchen table VLSI. but it seems like a promising idea to investigate.

mircea_popescu: why ?
mircea_popescu: if anyone missed it, the latest debate with datskovskiy is raging even now http://polimedia.us/trilema/2013/some-basic-discussion-of-bitcoin-macroeconomy/#comment-93049
benkay: presumably for basement mining hardware?
jurov: i tried to point out that shitcoins are akin to banknotes that you can remotely tamper with their value
cads: asciilifeform: what's your 3d printing background?
jurov: and thus obviously nobody is interested in accepting them
jurov: but it went nowhere
cads: what I heard was a lot about printing guns, without any mention of things like the thingiverse, the form 1, makerbot industry's successes, the fact that the staples is rolling out a 3d printer that will be sold from their stores (the cubify offering).
cads: 3d printed guns is about 1 year old
cads: and the whole topic is only for lunatics
cads: this is like judging bitcoin solely on the characteristics of its use in the silk road.
cads: appplications for 3d printing are amazingly wide ranging. The cubify is a mass produced unit in the $1200 range, intended for crafts and hobbies, school classrooms, children, and so on.
cads: it's also misleading to say that 3d printers require the same CAD/CAM work that mills require
benkay: mircea_popescu GPG identity management services will eclipse the engineering payroll? o.O please correct my interpretation of what you said on the other side of that link
mircea_popescu: nope, that's it.
mircea_popescu: identity management will be larger than engineering.
cads: asciilifeform: this is not true - for a well tuned commercial printer, the process of turning a 3d design into gcode is almost trivial. Coding g-code for a cnc mill is amazingly hard for high complexity parts, and often requires the production of specialized tooling and setup costs for each new part you produce
kakobrekla: you dont code g-code
kakobrekla: nobody does that
cads: no, you synthesize it
kakobrekla: yea
benkay: or
benkay: print the big form
benkay: carve off the bits you need for dimensional correctness with a mill
benkay: let the printer do the complex geometry
cads: Yep. the print time of a part scales with the part's volume. The milling time of a contoured part scales with the amount of material removed, but more importantly, with the feature count of the surface produced.

mircea_popescu: ah, actually, there is a reason
mircea_popescu: we are choked by nonadoption/node death
mircea_popescu: consequently there's no way to outcompete dust txs, cause you don't pay a fee to be relayed

benkay: nonadoption of new version numbers?
jordandotdev: does anyone know if bitfinex has an irc channel?
ThickAsThieves: i had a thought about altcoin manipulaiton today, it seems that every new altcoin that pops up, magically has buyers on BTC-E. I wonder if it'd be feasible to support new coins so as to keep the difficulty low on the one coin you really want to control and prop up later, like litecoin. You get everyone to move their hashes elsewhere, and then keep reaping LTC, then you pull the plug
ThickAsThieves: one day on all the alts.
cads: benkay: lets talk more about 3dp later - I think there is a great future in personal desktop-based manufacturing, and it seems like 3dp is positioned to bring it to the consumer. There are lots of points of contention I'd love to chat about, but I gotta jet.
mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves pretty much the pump and dump they're running
ThickAsThieves: they can even make money pumping the alts too, it just seems like it's a house of cards
kakobrekla: seems this alt chain thingy comes in cycles
mircea_popescu: yup
mircea_popescu: btc-e is pretty much the reason nobody takes alts seriously
kakobrekla: together with bubbles
kakobrekla: or when was the last alt chain hype
kakobrekla: ixcoin and i0coin and whatnot
ThickAsThieves: so the question is, which, if any, altcoin is the "real" altcoin
kakobrekla: bitcoin is preety alt
mircea_popescu: ltc may have a chance. maybe.
mircea_popescu: tho the "mmo" idiots beat up in btc moved there, and it's prolly going to be the internet marketeer reservation

asciilifeform: damn, went off to meatspace for a spell and missed all the fun here.
benkay: there's a log now
benkay: public and everything
asciilifeform: I got a month of running log, sure
asciilifeform: re: 3d printers: I work with a guy who is a serious solid printing enthusiast (five figure investment in various attempts, and most of his spare time.) he prints objects like phone charging cradles and parts for model aircraft.
asciilifeform: my argument isn't that solid printing is a waste of time (it is an interesting hobby) but that it is unlikely to displace industrial production for any everyday object
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform ever ?
asciilifeform: I wouldn't say "ever", but it is about the same as home CNC machining
mircea_popescu: i tell you, originally they thought the same of industrial robots.
mircea_popescu: clunky, hopeless things.
asciilifeform: i.e. you need actual brains to make a useful object, to spec
mircea_popescu: ie, yuou need brains to climb stairs.
asciilifeform: even speaking solely of plastic objects where materials strength is unimportant, the main issue appears to be warping/distortion
asciilifeform: example: my colleague prints an iphone cradle, brings in five attempts. the phone fits in the fifth, but only because he threw in the towel and took a hand file to it
asciilifeform: the next day he brings in two pieces
asciilifeform: (it snapped)
asciilifeform: this doesn't prove anything in particular, granted
asciilifeform: other than the fact that real-world materials behave in all kinds of interesting ways
asciilifeform: and not at all like the ideal solid you see on the CAD screen
asciilifeform: btw, industrial robots are an instructive example, because in some fields they are available, but it is very difficult to get people to trust them for all but the simplest operations
mircea_popescu: except they do everything pretty much.
mircea_popescu: a fucking CAT scan is you fucking a robot.
kakobrekla: lol
asciilifeform: the hardware is superb, the vendor software: abysmal.
asciilifeform: at least in the pharma sector.
asciilifeform: I actually sell a replacement for the latter in one of my day jobs: http://www.molboxllc.com/products.html
asciilifeform: almost everyone seems to prefer grad students pushing pipettes, though
asciilifeform: given that the robot goes for $250K
mircea_popescu: lol basically making macros for computer illiterate folk ?
asciilifeform: just that
asciilifeform: except that in this particular case it works better
asciilifeform: (e.g. you don't have to measure the physical objects and fit them to a coordinate grid)
asciilifeform: most of the operations in high-throughput pharma screening are repetitive
benkay: grad schools suffer from an excess of cheap labor
mircea_popescu: ^
mircea_popescu: t\hey don't really WANT to replace the students
mircea_popescu: because they get most of their income from pretending those students doing boring shit are "gaining"
mircea_popescu: killed 1 rat gained 5xp
benkay: they don't understand the costs of institutionally embedded knowledge either
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: trust me, I know
asciilifeform: but in a few dark corners of the world, results actually matter
asciilifeform: (outside the academia pesthole, but even then, by far not always)
mircea_popescu: The Entropia Universe client is designed to operate on Microsoft compatible PC:s running Microsoft Windows as an operating system. It is not designed to run natively under Mac OS X or Linux.
mircea_popescu: However, your Mac running OS X or PC running Linux that meet the hardware system requirements for Entropia Universe may also be able to run Microsoft Windows, the operating system needed to run the Entropia Universe client software.

mircea_popescu: you aid computer not laptop.
mircea_popescu: a laptop is basically neversafe to use again, unless you take it apart.
dub: well the saving grace is its battery is completely dead, only works with power attached so hopefully no residual power to short anything
mircea_popescu: I am just speculating but it seems to me that Mircea isn't really a racist even though he could have conveyed his point more gently by considering the history of racism and ethnic discrimination in the U.S. and the fact that Bitcoin is popular within the same demographic of people that will actually read him, despite his Armenian descent he could have been more considerate of other nations
mircea_popescu: o.o

kakobrekla: >Small issues friend. We are attempting to make our exchange very reputable. I don't see value this year, but 10 years down the road when crypto-currencies are truly the trend. Our vision is to build a long lasting product for our market - We need a good team to do that.
kakobrekla: omg!
kakobrekla: >I should have been clear on the aspect of the design and basic functionality - I think bitstamp is a clean interface but you are right, they have their flaws. Engine wise, I'd look towards the process MtGox is taking on and the partnerships they have forged with various companies to increase their survival (see: Prolexic partnership).
kakobrekla: he said survival.
