mike_c: cool, what's the screen from?
mike_c: you should make the text run vertically with lines in columns instead of rows. then do your best matrix impression.
kakobrekla: not what but where. china.
kakobrekla: it has a built in matrix thingy, if you misaddress the pointer to the screen line it will automatrix.
mike_c: heh
kakobrekla: the purpose of this gadget is not irc. what is it? not tellin. do what i want.
lobbes: <mircea_popescu> there should be a new constitutional amendment. "no one may run for elected office, be it presidential, as member of congress or senate or any other, who can not recite the entirety of all laws, regulations etc" << Does that include all migratory bird treaties?
mike_c: lobbes: or.. there shouldn't be migratory bird treaties. it's like flat tax. simple, yet insufficient.
lobbes: yeah, it is pretty ridiculous

asciilifeform: kakobrekla: i've one quite like this.
kakobrekla: at this point, i would be surprised if you didnt!
asciilifeform: kakobrekla: unsurprisingly, i've an embarrassingly large collection of these
kakobrekla: :D
asciilifeform: and is that a beheaded model m ?
kakobrekla: so called 'space saver'
asciilifeform: aha guessed as much.
asciilifeform never understood the need to save 'space' by abolishing numbers pad - unless living in a ship, manned capsule of some other variety
kakobrekla: i use a mouse.

kakobrekla: lol no, but numpad get in the way and im not much into numerical data entry.
asciilifeform: kakobrekla: lathe coordinates ?
kakobrekla: not in a long time.
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 24317 @ 0.00091545 = 22.261 BTC [+] {3}
asciilifeform recently bought a 'proper' lathe - no coordinates, just cranks... ☟︎
kakobrekla: the only thing i miss is that far right enter for some reason but i have a programmable hw ps2 to usb converter and remaped keys / macros
asciilifeform has pretty much the entire numpad programmed as emacs knobs of one kind or another

kakobrekla: what is it that you want to achieve?
decimation: so this layer hack is a function of the firmware on the keyboard?
kakobrekla: my setup takes in ps2 signal, but you can hook it up directly to the keyboard matrix
decimation: ah I see, so it's hardware "matrix switch"?
kakobrekla: you can hook it up to something like https://www.pjrc.com/teensy/

asciilifeform: 'What bothers me is that you are saying what the agency wants us to believe -- they used to be great, but these days they have trouble reading the newspaper, the Internet is too complicated for them, there is so much traffic and they can't find what they want. It may be true, but it is what they have been 'saying' for years. It's convenient for N.S.A. to have its targets believe it is in trouble.'
asciilifeform: (attributed to... Whitfield Diffie. circa 1999. http://cryptome.org/nsa-hersh.htm)
asciilifeform: (linked piece, otherwise is tedious crud)
decimation: asciilifeform it seems that the meta-nsa doesn't exist in reality
decimation: Hayden emphasized that the personnel problems are far less significant than the technological ones: "The issue is not people but external changes. For the N.S.A., technology is a two-edged sword. If technology in the outside world races away from us -- at breakneck speed -- our mission is more difficult. It can be our enemy."

decimation: yeah I think you are probably right
decimation: at any rate it's not clear to me that clowns like Hayden or Alexander would even recognize skills if they saw them
asciilifeform: decimation: no actual need for this
asciilifeform: the real, long-term decisions are made at the level below political appointee
asciilifeform: (that is, by folks who have lifetime careers in the service)
decimation: if such people exist, they are probably pretty sad these days, given the point made a few weeks ago about how they would have to live as paupers
asciilifeform: paupers? you ever meet u.s. civil service folks?
decimation: well, it depends where they are on the pay scale I guess
asciilifeform: they aren't rich, in the customary sense (they must work, and are expected to follow a variety of curious social rituals, including living in very particular places) - but not paupers.

asciilifeform actually applied for that same job once
decimation: Come live in Maryland, pay $500k for house with schools, get paid $80k per year - for your country
decimation: this goes back to Mircea's point - USG "wants" things, but it can't really afford them - it's running on the "fumes" of past memories

decimation: ah the model M terminal keyboard to usb hack is cool
decimation: I still don't understand why serial terminals went out of style, seems like the perfect solution to point of sale units, etc
asciilifeform: decimation: because microshit decreed it
asciilifeform: can't run winblows on a serial term.
decimation: that's pretty much the equivalent of breaking windows, replacing them with more expensive (yet worse) windows (heh), and counting the whole project as a net positive GDP

mircea_popescu: lobbes yes, it does.

mircea_popescu: decimation: Hayden emphasized that the personnel problems are far less significant than the technological ones << well, i disagree. now, from a bureaucrat pov, sure, they generally can fill any jobs they want filled, according to their selection process. this however does not mean they are gaining any sort of valuable human capital.
fluffypony: argh
mircea_popescu: on the contrary.
mircea_popescu: decimation: at any rate it's not clear to me that clowns like Hayden or Alexander would even recognize skills if they saw them << precisely. suppose they DO recognise them, like, "this chick looks like she could suck a golfball through a gardenhose." now what ? the last guy that recognised that skill lost his job.
mircea_popescu: it's the easiest skill to recognise, too. so... not much hope. they're hiring people, sure, but people only google/microsoft/apple/amazon would hire if they didn't.

mircea_popescu: otherwise they may end up bamboozled by the nonsense fetishism of pseudo-power the ycombinator swamp is pusing, "in order to interact with power acceptably you must give it away in exchange for the trappings of it". tlp discusses the matter extensively and well.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform: ;;google senior executive service pay << these folk get options. whole different story, as bubbles happen 3-5 times in a lifetime.
TheNewDeal: just curious. I was trying to make a bet on MMM on a BTC basis in the past, and it kept on getting rejected. The brk-a bet surfaced not too long after
mircea_popescu: the russian scam ?!
mircea_popescu: well, the brk bet had the major advantage of 1k zeroconf. that has ~0% chances of being rejected.
TheNewDeal: no doubt. I think it's a great bet, and a somewhat ballsy one as well
mircea_popescu: it already paid lulz in spades. buffett held his yearly meet, supposedly "couldn't find any short". just the embarassment of that...
TheNewDeal: couldnt find any short?
TheNewDeal: what do you mean?
mircea_popescu: yes. i mean they claimed to want to invite someone who's short their thing, but to not be able to find one.
mircea_popescu: as far as i'm concerned, when the luminaries of the previous generation are careful to avoid playing you, more recognition is not really needed. it'll come, of course, but it's moot.
TheNewDeal: I am curious to see how confident investors are after his death.

mircea_popescu: moiety kinda good to have in the background sort of thing imo. that's kinda the idea, i never expected any significant sort of volume.
DreadKnight: mircea_popescu, really find that way stupid as well; wasn't very excited about steam coming to linux in the first place, but maybe someday SteamOS consoles will be popular, like OUYA was somewhat expected, but until then, steam is an extra layer, just to get more ads and see a ton of "your friend is not playing dota2"
DreadKnight: got a medium range tablet and it's still crappy thing compared to a pc
mircea_popescu: i really don't like these walled garden bullshits.
DreadKnight: s/not/now*
mircea_popescu: maybe i'm not quite as radical as pankkake about it, but i defo don't like em.
DreadKnight: the web was supposed to be "the thing" imo, not packaged apps for more linux based distros each having their own store
pankkake: Steam seems popular with Windows users, it seems to be one of the less intrusive "stores"
pankkake: and IIRC not all games from Steam come with DRM
mircea_popescu: well for windows users rape in an alley is an improvement.
chetty: DreadKnight, to answer your earlier question, no I am not running gentoo
DreadKnight: chetty, oh, no +1 for being nerdy stat then xD
BingoBoingo: This thing with steam is you can sandbox it somewhere, as opposed to iOS
mircea_popescu: DreadKnight join #eulora
BingoBoingo: Windows steam runs fine on Linux
BingoBoingo: Linux steam runs fine on some linuxes
mircea_popescu: ahahah DreadKnight http://i3.minus.com/ibySTyaR5vkNgB.png that' slulz.y

chetty: fluffypony, the world is full of em
pankkake: the thread lacks a funny factor
BingoBoingo: fluffypony: But if you stab Jimmothy in the face suddenly everyone will buy MPEx seats!
fluffypony: stupid fucker
fluffypony: "A seat would mean there are a limited amount and you can sell your own seat. On mpex you can buy a "seat" and sell unlimited seats to other naive investonomers."
DreadKnight was thinking about stabbing people in the face and smiling
pankkake: I read his last posts, just sad hardcore bagholding
fluffypony: by definition, unless MPEX drops it's 30 BTC fee it will become progressively more expensive
fluffypony: until it is so cost-prohibitive that basically nobody can afford one
fluffypony: so there you go, there's a limited amount

fluffypony: mircea_popescu: no, not apart from the occasional frustrating interaction on Bitcointalk
fluffypony: every time it makes me want to stab him a little more
mircea_popescu: he's been on this bash mpex for nonsensical reason for much too long by now.
mircea_popescu: there's no possibility of any sort of rational process involved, he's some guy who figures he's going to "do damage" to mpex by being stupid online.
mircea_popescu: not bothering to consider that if THAT'S how things worked it'd have been lights out a long time ago.
DreadKnight: haters gonna hate
fluffypony: yeah
mircea_popescu: to some degree he's educated tho, he displays about the same low level sophisms in general use by th population of online libtards

BigBitz: not jelly :D
BigBitz: Just poor.
mircea_popescu: BigBitz how can you be poor, you been mining for long enough
BigBitz: me?
BigBitz: you must be mistaking me, mircea_popescu.
mircea_popescu: yes you
DreadKnight: I am poor too, trying to not be jelly on simple games that made lots of money
BigBitz: I mined for about a month...
BigBitz: then sold my BFLs.
mircea_popescu: oh
mircea_popescu: i missed that part.
BigBitz: but I didn't get into Bitcoin for some time. April 2013.

DreadKnight: mircea_popescu, so if you still need freelancer or whatever, lol *cough*
DreadKnight: translator*
BigBitz: I could have been half as rich as you mircea_popescu ;)
mircea_popescu: or twice.
DreadKnight: people who don't have the rich mentality get back to being poor in no time
BigBitz: twice would have made me as rich \o/
BigBitz: DreadKnight it's a state of mind :)
DreadKnight: yeah
BigBitz: It's OK; I can cope.
mircea_popescu: DreadKnight what, him ? but he don't speakz romanians.
DreadKnight: I used to think I need to know a lot of nerdy stuff and work hard to earn, then I started seeing people playing games and making way more with less work xD
mircea_popescu: <DreadKnight> I am poor too, trying to not be jelly on simple games that made lots of money << you are probably making the mistake of mentally restricting the universe to some sort of schoolyard definition of "merit"
mircea_popescu: that's not how things work.
DreadKnight: mircea_popescu, meant me regarding translation :P
DreadKnight: but yeah, I'm still figuring out things regarding mentality
mircea_popescu: uh. im still trying to pin down exactly what it was you do. originally figured some coder guy, then you wanted to do 3d models, now you want to translate
mircea_popescu: you know you gotta pick something.
BigBitz: He's a 3D modelling coder.
BigBitz: Duh.
BigBitz: He can juggle as well...
DreadKnight: true, I spend a lot of time on computer usually, told you before, jack of all trades atm, hopefully will specialize and stick with one thing, but sounds boring

mircea_popescu: and then unwind any asset-protective trade as "without consideration"
mircea_popescu: and just steal the buyer's thing to give it to the creditor.
mircea_popescu: however, this is exactly contrary to how the whole rest of the bureaucracy would like to treat it.
mircea_popescu: but that is a pike to drive in the hydra's eye later on, let's not anticipate.
decimation: quite so, bitcoin will enable a whole cottage industry of tax-avoidance
decimation: in the us it's quite important for elderly to have no net worth on paper, so they qualify for free healthcare
mircea_popescu: that's a different story.
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 3959 @ 0.00087589 = 3.4676 BTC [+] {2}
mircea_popescu: what i'm talking about here is, every single college kid getting mailed those ccs ?
decimation: which isn't quite tax avoidance, but it's measurable asset avoidance
mircea_popescu: buying bitcoin and moving to mexico.

decimation: if your scenario happens (college kids leverage usd debt for bitcoin) that will be the way that the baby boomers lose their lock on elite wealth and power in the us
mircea_popescu: if the kids weren't stupid it'd be happening already.
mircea_popescu: bitcoin is the perfect tool for intergenerational warfare.
mircea_popescu: take the coinfire dood. he thinks he's too old to be arsed to learn gpg ? he thinks he's too mature to submit ?
mircea_popescu: open wide, here comes the rape train.
decimation: re: dynamic equilibrium of bitcoin: I'm pretty convinced that 99% of people born in the west (especially academic specialists) have no idea about 'money', 'currency' 'non-money commodities', whatever words you want to use to label it
mircea_popescu: or about anything else.
decimation: yeah it's pretty much the same way that people think that ssl websites are the best practice in 'secure' data transfer
mircea_popescu: battery chickens have no idea 'bout pine needles. big whoop.
decimation: I also find it amusing that the most important thing that the bureaucrats & academics start derping about are definitions
mircea_popescu: it's the dubious blessing of being raised in a system, that with the safety this entails for as long as the system survives comes intermingled the complete cluelessness and inability to survive.
decimation: hell, no one younger than 50 in the US has tried to buy a house in the context of greater than 10% mortgage rates
decimation: if this whole winklevoss etf thing isn't a scam, bitcoin is probably going to trade 2-10x in dollars by next spring
decimation: it will be highly amusing to watch the anti-bitcoin derps on wallstreet to lose their shirts shorting bitcoin
mircea_popescu: they can't lose their shirts.
mircea_popescu: they got worthless money in infinite supply. as long as they follow the crowd they get to keep the shirts.
mircea_popescu: so recently some new guy was in here with his old idea rehashed and i pointed out to him it'll never work, and it only seems to work for now, because it's not working yet.
mircea_popescu: anyone recall particulars ?
jborkl: money in infinite supply is the us right now
jborkl: pricing is out of control
jborkl: a house for $400,000 6 years ago is easily $600,000
jborkl: maybe more
