mircea_popescu: eh wtfd.
mircea_popescu: !up kdomanski
decimation: heh yeah I read that. to be honest, I'm not sure the existing init system is worthy of much praise
mircea_popescu: decimation i can see that point.
decimation: but systemd is worse, in the sense that it adds a layer of obfuscation
mircea_popescu: exactly.
mircea_popescu: just because your old clunker is rusty doesn't mean you should add a bamboo patio on the roof.
decimation: now, it does give some functionality in exchange - faster boot times, 'carefully managed' boot process, etc
asciilifeform: actually we have here a rare case of danger from an unwillingness to move from the technological into the political gear of thought.
mircea_popescu: decimation yes, exactly what monoturdism usually promises.
mircea_popescu: then fails to deliver.
mircea_popescu: you familiar with the "giant stool" approach to economics ?
decimation: nope, what does that mean?
asciilifeform: poettering and his followers have demonstrated that they cannot be trusted to build a non-diabolical doorknob, much less init system
mircea_popescu: think of a supermarket as if it were a giant, walking the land of midgets.
mircea_popescu: should it find a nice place to sit for a while, such as a neighbourhood, it will be fine for as long as it sits, and when that's done can walk away
mircea_popescu: the stool he sat on, however, will never recover from having been sat upon.
decimation: in the sense that the midgets were all slain
mircea_popescu: ye, the people that left in exasperation at all the sprawl won't come back.
mircea_popescu: the shops that were closed by its competition won't return
mircea_popescu: soon enough you turned greenwich village into detroit.
mircea_popescu: now, this is a general economic principle, and it applies jut as well to monolithic coding approaches.
mircea_popescu: at first they promise "jobs for everyone and cheapoer prices"
mircea_popescu: then they don't deliver
mircea_popescu: then they leave.
mircea_popescu: compare ms-dos, still to this day accepted here as a paragon of programming,
mircea_popescu: with microsoft windows.
decimation: the window of economic possibility is narrowed
mircea_popescu: so, yes, "faster boot times". a more irrelevant metric could scarcely be devised.
mircea_popescu: how about "my uptime is longer than poettering's coding experience". what bootup "?
decimation: now the question is, are the economic possibilities of the midgets really narrowed, or do they just perceive that they are?
mircea_popescu: they are really narrowed. what happens there is treason. treason never works politically.
mircea_popescu: specifically, some midgets betray some other midgets, which they need to survive.
mircea_popescu: those latter midgets leave
mircea_popescu: and the former can't live.
mircea_popescu: the best case study for this in my view is romania in the 30s. idiot, indolent romanians allowed the worst among them (iron guard, dubious local fascist wannabe) to assassinate the best romanian that then lived, one duca.
mircea_popescu: without him, romania spent half a century in the warsaw shitter. with him, it'd have probably been greece instead.
decimation: this idea could also explain why debt-funding (usg bank style) is ruinous compared to capital-funding in the long run
mircea_popescu: sure.

asciilifeform: decimation: no.

decimation: "her verizon internet cd won't load on ubuntu"
mircea_popescu: legit complaint.
decimation: her problem is that she is a tiny, aimless midget in a world where massive giants are wondering, and they get 'roided daily with debt
mircea_popescu: basically, her problem is that the people who can think have decided lying to her is okay.
mircea_popescu: and certainly better than hurting her.
mircea_popescu: it's a pov. i don't happen to subscribe to it is all.
decimation: yeah, it is the exact opposite of that german education circa 1880 that we discussed earlier
mircea_popescu: quite.
mircea_popescu: "I also have no doubt that Poettering has received such attacks. Unfortunately, that comes with being a public figure on today's Internet. I myself have gotten death threats serious enough that I've turned them over to the FBI"
mircea_popescu: somehow the quality of the assholes in question never comes before the debate.
mircea_popescu: it's not that poettering gets pissed on wherever he goes because he in point of fact is a poitless, middlesome imbecile.
mircea_popescu: oh, no. it's because the internet is bad. because when you get negative feedback, you gotta blame the feedback.
decimation: that suddenly makes me sorry for fbi agents. they are essentially at the bottom of a gigantic public suggestion box/toilet
mircea_popescu: anyway. the right way has to be defended.
mircea_popescu: it's not just that systemd is a piece of shit.
mircea_popescu: it's that poettering personally is a malignancy, that what he says is poisonous, not just for the free world but individually for people that are intellectually mature,
asciilifeform: that's sorta what i was trying to explain
mircea_popescu: and that the groups he tends to attract and promote are nothing short of malicious.
mircea_popescu: that he dares to spin this entire web where "he puts the blame" on linus is nothing short of outrageous.
mircea_popescu: any cat may look at the king. sure. no cat may file a suit against the crown.

mircea_popescu: quite.
decimation: the receiving fbi agent should have had the same to say to poettering
mircea_popescu: problem is, the derps in the studio should have a) been repressed enough that they never dared think of speaking in front of the camera, let alone be allowed to do it
mircea_popescu: and b) be told the exact same thing.

assbot: Logged on 04-11-2014 02:49:05; decimation: so after watching Stierlitz, I surfed the wikipedia describing the NASDP government intelligence 4th department http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gestapo "According to Canadian historian Robert Gellately's analysis of the local offices established, the Gestapo was—for the most part—made up of bureaucrats and clerical workers who depended upon denunciations by citizens for their information.[78] Gellately
decimation: yeah I think I mentioned about how the gestapo used the same effect to 'terrorize' the population
mircea_popescu: not even a matter of going that far.
mircea_popescu: my point is, in a socialist system, be it us-socialist or national-socialist or soviet-socialist or anything it may be
mircea_popescu: the supposed fbi/gru/gestapo/etc is simply a toilet box for the public idiocy.
mircea_popescu: this is a very visible symptom of the problem of well metastasized socialism : a general sense of entitlement in the crowd of idiots. an unwarranted expectation of efficiency on their part.
mircea_popescu: the pernicious idea that they matter and can do things. etc.
mircea_popescu: in short, what do we observe right before a kinetic crash ? why, a body with high energy density and low navigational control.
mircea_popescu: now, go ahead and explain this to pankkake somehow. but in such a way so it fits his preconceptions comfortably.
decimation: there are millions of pankkakes who have become comfortable with living in whatever jungle conditions they find themselves
decimation: they might even find a particular patch of jungle that is more pleasing than another
mircea_popescu: sure, but that's cleaved. personal experience is one thing, personal understanding another.
decimation: it might be the case that this kind of understanding can only be had through a few cycles of systemds
decimation: * a few cycles of personal systemd experience
mircea_popescu: in any case, no amount of energy put into cutting short the ego and curbing the enthusiasm of the general population is wasted.
mircea_popescu: just like it's better to run a car just slightly slower than the maximum speed at which you can control a car, just so it's better to aspire to less than what one can actually do.
mats_cd03: not as long as people like poettering keep breathing amd contributing.
