benkay: i don't know that the women *can't* have kids so much as the men aren't interested in being fathers or even men
mircea_popescu: is what i meant.
mircea_popescu: "when you write manuals for naval or air force vessels, you don't use MS Word and hope Microsoft doesn't come out with yet another incompatible disservice pack and/or upgrade, you use CALS and enterprise-wide publishing systems."
mircea_popescu: holy shit what is he on about. what happened to tex.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: cals is/was a mind-bogglingly pedantic spec from us dod (circa early 80s)
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: with the idea that under no circumstances would the death of one, two, hundred vendors lead to unreadable texts
mircea_popescu: hm
asciilifeform: the result was a mega-backbreaker - like Ada. but it sorta worked.
mircea_popescu: i am ignorant ofsuch matters.
asciilifeform: they could have, in principle, picked tex, but the latter has no hard spec for graphics.
asciilifeform: all of this took place in the long-gone era when usg insisted on full blueprints, chip masks (!) etc. to ensure longevity of a complete design
mircea_popescu: as in tables ?
asciilifeform: as in bitmaps
mircea_popescu: wtf bitmaps
asciilifeform: and vector (e.g. cad)
mircea_popescu: svg ?
asciilifeform: svg is a very recent thing
asciilifeform: remember, this is pre-sgml even
mircea_popescu: oh oh
asciilifeform: us dod realized that computer would remain 'a thing' - wanted hard specced formats.
asciilifeform: one of the last gasps of reason from that institution
asciilifeform: (naggum is known to have worked in ada. hence his familiarity with the matter)
asciilifeform: what computer-based product, on the shelf today, can be guaranteed manufacturable 50 years hence?
asciilifeform: that was the objective. some semblance of guarantee.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform flash rom
asciilifeform: funny that you mention roms, because vintage arcade machine enthusiasts go through astounding gymnastics to replicate the behaviour of '80s roms.
mircea_popescu: and to push a point, im pretty sure the mosfets are unchanged
mircea_popescu: since maybe 60s
asciilifeform: if you want an analogue part with known 'curves', you usually have to work at it.
asciilifeform: ask a fellow who's into vintage musical synths
asciilifeform: (or the valve aficionados)

mircea_popescu: asciilifeform actually it's jolting if inserted up the cunt
asciilifeform: i can picture this
asciilifeform: for those who don't own this toy - it is rather like the spark of static one sometimes gets when touching grounded objects in winter time, but - constantly
mircea_popescu: so it has legitimate place in sex shop
mircea_popescu: if not in derma clinic (which is still done btw, high end spas and whatnot)
asciilifeform: zaps, e.g. acne pretty well.
mircea_popescu: " the spark of static one sometimes gets when touching grounded objects in winter time" << he means, when wearing mixed wool and plastic clothing

benkay: test it on a babe...
benkay: dissolves the hair, asciilifeform ?
asciilifeform: negative
asciilifeform: gotta light it.

mircea_popescu: they brazilian wax FOR SPORT

mircea_popescu: in general, once corruption becomes fashionable, holdouts last ageneration or less.
mircea_popescu: and obviously, there's no prize for the people that ran safe stacks. there's a prize for those who didn't, who now get to a) bundle a lot of unrelated responmsibility and blame it on this known cause and b) ask for more money.
mircea_popescu: sort-of like the teenage slut born to wealth that skips a lot of school, and gets herself knocked up. not only is she getting some candy to "compensate" her for the abortion, but she also gets to blame her cocaine habit on the bad boy that "seduced" her.

assbot: [HAVELOCK] [PETA] 26 @ 0.05592064 = 1.4539 BTC [-] {2}
dignork: this is d assumed to be an idiot, or x have non-trivial ability to impersonate e
mircea_popescu: both are true to sufficient degree for the practical needs of the swindle in question.
mircea_popescu: think of it, this is a space where fucktarded "community members" aptly represented by the "bitcoin foundation" and well catered for by the power rangers a) gave half a million btc to trendon shavers and then b) gave half a million btc to silk road
mircea_popescu: thus creating a one million btc headache for me and everyone else seriously comitted to making btc the end of western style government.

mircea_popescu: dignork for that matter, x can simply convey d's request for proof to e
mircea_popescu: e has to satisfy it.

dignork: mircea_popescu: LBC can divert this attack, by making e submit bank details
mircea_popescu: and fuck you for being mean and dispariging them

mircea_popescu: maybe
mircea_popescu: that's the most you get here, a sort of up and down and all around maybe.
mircea_popescu: and by now yuour defense has reduced to trying to implement a broken sort of wot anyway
dignork: it is a general weak system problem - anyone knowing my bank account details (any freaking vendor i had business before) can create bad transactions in my name, he might get some money, or not, I'll definitely get some headache

mircea_popescu: hey, mine too.

mircea_popescu: women being a... consumable commodity, which once consumed has very strong incentives to stick

asciilifeform: the thief may or may not have 'insider' tip on who just ordered new laptop, gold bar, etc
mircea_popescu: and in principle, to make the point whole, for all those who wish the "good old days" were to return : they can not. they have been defeated in the field, through being weak to such things.
mircea_popescu: i know for one i would never marry in other way than through making some old fart pay for it thus, were i living in 1814
mircea_popescu: as a matter of principle.

asciilifeform: 'You can routinely find lecturers with more than a hundred published papers and you marvel at these paradigms of human creativity. These are people, you think, who are fit to challenge Mozart who wrote a hundred pieces or more of music. And then you get puzzled that, in this modern world, there should be so many Mozarts - almost one for every department. The more prosaic truth emerges when you scan the titles
asciilifeform: of these epics. First, the author rarely appears alone, sharing space with two or three others. Often the collaborators are Ph.D. students who are routinely doing most of the spade work on some low grant in the hope of climbing the greasy pole. Dividing the number of titles by the author's actual contribution probably reduces those hundred papers to twenty-five. Then looking at the titles themselves, you'll see
asciilifeform: that many of the titles bear a striking resemblance to each other. "Adaptive Mesh Analysis" reads one and "An Adaptive Algorithm for Mesh Analysis" reads another. Dividing the total remaining by the average number of repetitions halves the list again. Mozart disappears before your very eyes.'

mthreat: <mircea_popescu> btw mthreat wouldja be interested in filling in the logs for the first missing year, and generate a drop-in blob kakobrekla can put into his log thing too ? << I got asciilifeform's ba-turd file. But I'm not sure what format kako wants. search.b-a gets all of its info from log.b-a by crawling, since I link to it in the search results.
mircea_popescu: ah

mircea_popescu: benkay how do you figure ? and it's more

mircea_popescu: hahaha
benkay: well i'm probably wrong, but STM doesn't actively work against KR - just refuses to help him in his immoral quest
mircea_popescu: you are not humble and therefore can not be given a ton of power.
benkay: "Imagine, for instance, that 98% of the players are unfailingly nice to each other, but unfailingly cruel to the remaining 2% (who they can recognize, let’s say, by their long noses or darker skin—some trivial feature like that). Meanwhile, the put-upon 2% return the favor by being nice to each other and mean to the 98%. Who, in this scenario, is moral, and who’s immoral? The mathematical verdict of both eigenmoses and eigenjesus is
benkay: unequivocal: the 98% are almost perfectly good, while the 2% are almost perfectly evil. After all, the 98% are nice to almost everyone, while the 2% are mean to those who are nice to almost everyone, and nice only to a tiny minority who are mean to almost everyone. Of course, for much of human history, this is precisely how morality worked, in many people’s minds. But I dare say it’s a result that would make moderns uncomfortable."
mircea_popescu: benkay you read what, the book ? saw the movie ?
benkay: i've only seen the movie.
benkay: i'm referring to the character in the play/movie.
mircea_popescu: yes well. more is a loyal subject of the king.
mircea_popescu: what do you mean "work against" ?
benkay: yeah, good question.
mircea_popescu: what is this revolutionary scandalous licentiousness where a subject may be allowed to pass himself as moral agent equal to his sovereign ?
benkay: i mean i need more coffee and a caning.
benkay: but if the sovereign is demonstrably immoral and god sayeth otherwise?
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 5000 @ 0.00086261 = 4.3131 BTC [-] {2}
mircea_popescu: a sovereign can not be demonstrably immoral tho is the problem
benkay: my loyalty is first to god - and then the king.
decimation: benkay: is that quote from the play?
benkay: decimation: my tortured imagination.
mircea_popescu: what quote
asciilifeform: bus driver can demonstrably suck (machine careens of a cliff.) it does not follow that bus should be rebuilt with a steering wheel for each passenger - etc
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform except what is a cliff ?
benkay: divorce ;)
mircea_popescu: lol
mircea_popescu: the situation where the sovereign is a dumbass can not be distinguished from the situation where evil people are prevailing with their treason and schemes upon the monarch by loyal subjects
mircea_popescu: this is yet again the degenerate form of the sybill attack for a degenerate wot
mircea_popescu: there's very little difference between feudalism and escrow
mircea_popescu: in fact, feudalism is a means of working land held in escrow.
mircea_popescu: lemme try for proper english over here.
benkay: it boils down to he who may destroy is the sovereign?
mircea_popescu: loyal subjects can not distinguish the situation where the sovereign is a dumbass from the situation where evil people are prevailing with their treason and schemes.
mircea_popescu: benkay you will note that more only forms a moral judgement once he is no longer subject to his king
mircea_popescu: ie, once they get that schmuck to lie under oath and convict him of treason
decimation: indeed, giving those loyal subjects universal sufferage solves nothing
benkay: that's when he discloses it. it's clear he's had the opinion for a long time.
mircea_popescu: no such thing is clear.
benkay: hm
decimation: that very point was the climax of the movie (man for all seasons)
kakobrekla: mthreat dunno, csv, mysql, what have you got ?
mircea_popescu: decimation nah, the climax was when he shows himself an eunuch
mthreat: kakobrekla: I'll be parsing the log file asciilifeform provided, so I can put it in whatever format, or you can just take the irc log file and parse it on your end.
mircea_popescu: up to the point where he rebuffs roper you may entertain the notion more is a whole man. but after he admits he will grant the other's safety for his own safety's sake you know he's not.
mircea_popescu: mthreat ever got mine ?
mthreat: belgium beats russia 1-0
mthreat: mircea_popescu: yeah but asciilifeform's overlaps
mircea_popescu: mine starts earlier im pretty sure ? or not ?
kakobrekla: my logs are all fucked up i dun wanna parse that.
mircea_popescu: ideally this should be done once and cover the whole shjebang
mircea_popescu: kakobrekla ship them to him ?
mthreat: yours only had march/april 2013 I think
mircea_popescu: 2012. look again.
kakobrekla: but if theres a coherent version out there i can parse it
mircea_popescu: and also ever got Azelphur's version ?
mthreat: mircea_popescu: not yet
kakobrekla: my logs are more work than worth
mircea_popescu: kako a ok
mthreat: kakobrekla: also you'll have to figure out how to number entries before your current entry #1 (April 26, 2013)
kakobrekla: into negative ofc
mircea_popescu: here's an interesting if unrelated point : what characteristic of classical english theatre, cca 1600s, was shared by both classical french and italian, but not ever since ? so that 99.x% of all good plays, all good actors and all good performances have this one thing in common, that's not been seen again ?
mircea_popescu: (and the same holds for opera)
decimation: exquisite set-making?
mircea_popescu: mnope
decimation: well, I don't have french or italian, but Shakspeare's plays were ... poetry
mircea_popescu: turns out, it's that they were all produced for a small audience of the same people.
mircea_popescu: consequently the producers were forced to iterate a lot and fail fast
mircea_popescu: and the audience knew the craft better than any debutante.
mircea_popescu: such are the blessings of closed society : that art may flourish. democracy and social mobility allows for no such thing.
decimation: Thomas Carlyle on the wisdom of crowds: "Your ship cannot double Cape Horn by its excellent plans of voting. The ship may vote this and that, above decks and below, in the most harmonious exquisitely constitutional manner: the ship, to get round Cape Horn, will find a set of conditions already voted for, and fixed with adamantine rigour by the ancient Elemental Powers, who are entirely careless how you vote." http://books.google.com/

mircea_popescu: i wonder how many of the inept scientists of today realise just how amusing their global warming pretenses are
mircea_popescu: "lo and behold, we should be affraid that democracy is now in peril of falling out of the box and revoting cape horn"
decimation: the Patagonian cliffs care not for word-smithing and spinning
benkay: i've always thought it a rather bad idea to be burning everything at hand, just on the principle that i don't want to be breathing crap all the time.
mthreat: mircea_popescu: ok once I get Azelphur's, i'll turn them all into a mysql dump and send it to kakobrekla. Then once kako gets them on log.b-a, i'll just crawl-backfill.
mircea_popescu: benkay problem is that approach contradicts the "world peace" approach. not burn anytihng at hand but clothe and feed anyone at hand ?
decimation: one can simultaneously believe global warming is a scam and also consider the coal plant down the street to be ruinous
mircea_popescu: would you rather have soot or shit ?
decimation: plutonium for me
mircea_popescu: mthreat seems reasonable. were yopu able to find my 2012 bits or did i accidentally only send you one file of two ?
mircea_popescu: decimation no no, "we should tax everything and put the money into '''research'''"
mircea_popescu: only THAT is the correct way to solve all the world's p[roblems
mircea_popescu: in other words, two mice disagreed once on how to split a chunk of cheese they had found. so the cat ate the cheese, and the mice.
decimation: actually, at least one of the mice was probably on the cat's side
decimation: after all, it's better to have no humans at all than to have kulaks etc
mircea_popescu: yes. one of the mice was oi the cat's left side
mircea_popescu: while the other in the right
mthreat: mircea_popescu: yah you were correct. But as you said, your log has gaps, so hopefully Azelphur's logs are more complete.
mircea_popescu: hopefully ya
mircea_popescu: to be a modest chap, the logs kinda exist because i had this irresponsible attitude where i'd only log while awake, and so things got lost.
mircea_popescu: let it not be said that irresponsible laziness has not made nice things
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu is one of those weirdos who actually turns his computer on and off ?!
mircea_popescu: yea
decimation: well, one can be certain of its state when power is not applied
mircea_popescu: ^
decimation: save wake-on-lan nastiness
mircea_popescu: no such thing
asciilifeform: someone actually uses wake on lan !?!
decimation: well, impi, remote access, all the same kind of thing
asciilifeform: who the hell has impi on a 'human' box ?
decimation: I considered buying a server with that feature so I could remotely access it without a monitor
mircea_popescu: Instituto Mexicano de la Propiedad Industrial. Registre su marca hoy.
decimation: but yeah, not on a workstation
decimation: I'm glad I didn't in retrospect - was gonna buy a supermicro - before, I could pretend it was secure, now we know otherwise
asciilifeform: i never understood the popularity of the crud. an ip-kvm is what, a few hundy? why attach proprietary strange to your front bus?
decimation: well, to me the major attraction beside the ip-kvm is the power cycle feature
decimation: but that can be had for even less money honestly
asciilifeform: the high-end kvm have power relays
decimation: interestingly, old dell RAC cards had a feature where you could actually "view" the monitor over ssh
asciilifeform: is ipmi one of those 'may as well hang for a sheep' affairs, where folks use intel cpu, etc and know they're already owned anyway
asciilifeform: e.g. whore with aids might as well contract syphilis
decimation: yeah you are right ascii, but you do realize that nearly all public and private entities in the US fall into that category
decimation: here's how the SEC put it: http://investor.gov/news-alerts/investor-alerts/investor-alert-bitcoin-other-virtual-currency-related-investments
assbot: Investor Alert: Bitcoin and Other Virtual Currency-Related Investments | Investor.gov
decimation: "Not insured. While securities accounts at U.S. brokerage firms are often insured by the Securities Investor Protection Corporation (SIPC) and bank accounts at U.S. banks are often insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), bitcoins held in a digital wallet or Bitcoin exchange currently do not have similar protections."
decimation: why would you want to live outside the benevolent "protection" of USG?
decimation: honestly that "alert" is a pretty good pitch for Bitcoin
thestringpuller: how would you even insure bitcoins and who would insure them?
thestringpuller: only MP has the capital to actually insure anyone...
thestringpuller: (insure anyone worht insuring)
mircea_popescu: nobody can insure bitcoin in the sipc/fdic sense, because nobody can print them.
mircea_popescu: that type of insurance is typical manufacturer insurance, "that the product be free of defects or replaced"
thestringpuller: what about the sense of car insurance?
mircea_popescu: and so in this sense, it's not that bitcoin isn't insured in that way. it's moreover that bank deposits etc aren't, and the continuance of the fraudulent pretense to the contrary promulgated by various usg agencies among which the sec above strictly depends on it not being needed.
thestringpuller: wow
thestringpuller: profound...
thestringpuller: (cause it's true)
decimation: mircea_popescu: Indeed, which is why this "alert" is so amusing. "Seizing or freezing bitcoins. Law enforcement officials may have difficulty seizing or freezing illicit proceeds held in bitcoins. Bitcoin wallets are encrypted and unlike money held in a bank or brokerage account, bitcoins may not be held by a third-party custodian."
decimation: Don't use Bitcoin because we can't take it away from you, at our option
mircea_popescu: lol
mircea_popescu: but that's exactly the concept. my slavegirl might not want to visit you in a room you can lock at your option.
decimation: so to be clear, it used to be the case that in order for someone to seize "your" money, they had to show up at your house and take your physical coins
mircea_popescu: !up nerdfiles
mircea_popescu: well yes, but this was before a time people expected the king pick up their apothecary bill.
