mircea_popescu: yep
kakobrekla: dpaste is not permanent however so perhaps this needs to go someplace else
mircea_popescu: prolly ya.
mircea_popescu: start a blog!
mircea_popescu: anyway, f.mpif may performance, 4.42419221, a little over 1%. 0.5ish of it went to cover for last month's misrepresentation of atc, leaving a little 1% clear.
kakobrekla: how about you include it in mpif statement?
mircea_popescu: aite ima drop it as a comment on bottom
bloctoc: does the 1% go to NAV calculation immediately?
mircea_popescu: hm ?

BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: That car anology explains sucinctly why I stay with automatic transmissions. I respect the limits of my ability to control a motor vehicle and anything that reliably saves me cogitive overhead is welcome.
BingoBoingo also has never had a car without automatic headlights...
kakobrekla: eh? i dont even think about gears when driving

BingoBoingo: kakobrekla: My concern is more the rural roads where I'll be cruising and then an old person in a buick or fucking red neck in a tractor interupts me.

kakobrekla: do you have the breaks on auto as well?

benkay: if you're not in control of the gearbox, you're not driving the machine
benkay: in the same way that if you're relying on an Object Relational Model to talk to your database, you're not actually writing data to your data store.
benkay: that layer of abstraction in between you and the machine is going to either give you a headache down the road or you're not going to get the performance the machine is capable of
benkay: with an ORM you'll inevitably find yourself writing raw SQL.
benkay: and with an automatic transmission you're limited to "GIVE ME ALL THE FAST RIGHT NOW...please."
benkay: that demonic AI in between you and the gearbox will prevent you doing anything to burn fuel at a rate sufficient to eke performance out of the thing.
kakobrekla: <benkay> with an ORM you'll inevitably find yourself writing raw SQL. <- depends, but in most cases generally not specific to anyone, perf is not an issue
benkay: *shrug*
benkay: for 90% of derpy web apps, an orm is entirely adequate.
thestringpuller: Damn BingoBoingo, i feel the same exact way
thestringpuller: fucking driving
kakobrekla: even for your mobile apps.
benkay: a significant chunk of the remaining apps are going to get popular and have load requirements that rendering the abstraction layer insufferable.
benkay: well, especially for mobile apps - in my experience most of the data is local to the phone
benkay: that render*
BingoBoingo: benkay: Well automatic transmission is less gearbox and more hydaulic slush box
benkay: i'm familiar, BingoBoingo
benkay: there are still gears, however.
benkay: you're talking about the clutch.

diametric: asciilifeform: it's also the brain child of Ken Thompson and Rob Pike
diametric: and go does have a repl
asciilifeform: yeah, the folks responsible for 35 years of static language well past sell by date
asciilifeform: it is important to understand what a proper repl consists of. i.e. a bash loop that repeatedly calls a compiler is not a genuine repl.
asciilifeform: you ought to be able to do 'who-calls' and other useful operations that need the machine to retain semantics of the original code
asciilifeform: people who design baroque contraptions (ml, haskell, ocaml, go - tradition) for 'smarter compiler' - that ends up grinding the original semantics of a program into incomprehensible soup - as if god came and said to mortals to use pdp-11 forever - are solving the wrong problem.
asciilifeform: it is possible - and has been done - to build cpu which executes high-level language more or less directly. but, given as i have an entire blog about this, i will omit the details here.

benkay: oh god

asciilifeform: from apple's point of view - it isn't quite enough to have an effective vendor lock-in through obj. c and the mac api - it is necessary to breed programmers who can't even -think- on a competing platform.
kakobrekla: so whats the story with this seaforth
artifexd: I'll buy that.
artifexd: Rephrase: asciilifeform, I accept your statement as an acceptable representation of reality.
asciilifeform: artifexd: if headline is genuine, the only real surprise is that apple had not attempted this earlier.
fluffypony: asciilifeform: I think they thought they could bend objective-C to become that
asciilifeform: fluffypony: one hint, in the past, was that apple clearly indicated a desire to see 'gcc' die in a fire

mircea_popescu: so from the "let's encourage people to fly" department :
mircea_popescu: Braniff Airways Flight 542, a Lockheed L-188 Electra, registration N9705C, was a scheduled domestic flight from Houston, Texas, bound for New York with scheduled stops in Dallas and Washington, D.C.. On September 29, 1959, 23 minutes into the 41-minute flight from Houston to Dallas Love Field, the aircraft disintegrated in mid-air approximately 3.8 miles (6.1 km) southeast of Buffalo, Texas killing everyone on board.
mircea_popescu: However, even though it was determined that the wing was destroyed by "cycles of reverse bending" or "flutter", the investigation failed to determine how the flutter was caused, and the investigation stalled.
mircea_popescu: The breakthrough into unlocking the cause of the accident came after the crash of Northwest Airlines Flight 710 on March 17, 1960. The two aircraft, both Electras, disintegrated in mid-air after losing their wings in similar fashion, both resulting in the deaths of all occupants on board.

kakobrekla: but i honestly believe they are getting traffic
kakobrekla: where else sheep gonna go? bitstamp is fucking them too directly.
kakobrekla: and afaik bs did another audit recently, where it shows they have less btc in books t han in the last one
mircea_popescu: traffic is one thing.
mircea_popescu: im sure they';re getting plenty of traffic, no argument there.
mircea_popescu: as a reddit/facebook/whatever social media site, bitfinex is just as good as any one of a thousand third hand niche things
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform: jurov: smbx had perverse incentives (usg funding that appeared bottomless - until it died suddenly. reagan's 'star wars.') << best way to sink a good start-up is a bad revenue source early on.
mircea_popescu: there are reasons a good manager is worth more than a good anything.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform: re: kickstarter: lol. suggested experiment: open a kickstart, with the headline 'pay my living expense for 20 years. in the end, you might get a useful gizmo if i live that long.' << you're making jurov's argument for him tho.
mircea_popescu: why would you phrase it that stupidly ?
fluffypony: I find Bitfinex's numbers highly suspect
mircea_popescu: you and everyone else capable of safely keeping a bitcoin for a year
mircea_popescu: who is lobbes ?
mircea_popescu: !up lobbes
mircea_popescu: jurov: i move for moiety to call them, ask about mpex and report for lulz << carried. moiety plz to call and ask

nubbins`: "bongtu" is korean for "plastic bag"
nubbins`: that yellow contraption says "bungtu" written on it
nubbins`: hilarity
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: why would you phrase it that stupidly << the answer is, because i haven't the titanic brain that would be needed to come up with a 'smart' way to phrase it. so generally i don't bring the subject up, unless asked first. 'basic research' is a fundamentally... unreasonable proposition from the ROI standpoint. i'm not particularly good at justifying unreasonable things.
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo: benkay: Are they supposing I want to fuck a hurricaine? << imagine the suction.
mircea_popescu: golf ball through garden hose, LITERALLY.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform, gotta be more easy going you know ?
asciilifeform: nubbins`: what's that?
nubbins`: plunger
mircea_popescu: "please kickstart my cool fundamental project. fundamental research is important because it's what keeps kittens purr"
asciilifeform: nubbins`: lol!
mircea_popescu: that's a major improvement.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: the usual reply of audience is 'why ought we give $bignum to you and not the 9,999 other wankers'
mircea_popescu: and the usual reply is to jus tignore the question.
mircea_popescu: in summa : you are approaching it as a hard problem. it's not, it's quite soft
mircea_popescu: and a little brown.
mircea_popescu: Reached by phone Monday afternoon, Slaughter was unaware of Kander's news release but said it must have been part of a settlement his lawyers were working on with the office. He said he also expects to have to pay a fine.
mircea_popescu: "I haven't heard from my lawyer exactly how much that's going to be," he said.
mircea_popescu: idiot. no, it's not part of it. it's part of every govt agency even remotely arguably connected trying to get a slice
mircea_popescu: because they're paid by how much they pretend to have mattered the previous year.
