punkman: dunno, I worry more about someone refreshing his keyring and ending up with extra subkeys under my main key, than a second main key appearing with same fingerprint, so I'm definitely setting my cert-digest-algo to sha512
punkman: unfortunately it seems hard to refresh current key using new cert-digest-algo
nubbins`: shinohai surely your country has a law limiting how much change can be used to settle a transaction?!
punkman: anyway, good thing I distributed my key before the shappening ;)

mircea_popescu: in media and not understand media? The fact that feminism is in the mainstream means that it doesn't exist, it is no longer real, in the same way that when you hear "gun control debate" it's a lie and "fiscal cliff" is an easy to market, safe distraction from the structural problems that can never be named, here's one: for any heterogeneous population, the expansion of a "welfare class" is logically inseparable from t

mircea_popescu: ha!
mircea_popescu: he happens to be exactly right, too. welfare class strictly means entrenching aristocracy, it isn't even a thing on and of itself. just a sympthom of that phenomena.
mircea_popescu: and entrenching aristocracy means sclerosis and stuff like that, but let's not get too serious.

mircea_popescu: did your father get a blowjob ?
mircea_popescu: how about anal sex. what % of his mates did he bugger ?
mircea_popescu: or wait. did he fuck more women than his age ?
asciilifeform actually does not know the answer to this riddle
mircea_popescu: i rest.
mircea_popescu: note that you're no more required to be a plumber than i'm required to give a shit about lisp. you get to pick your own spot where your vita brevis makes no difference anyway.
asciilifeform: but... srsly what else exciting action am i missing?! anal sex among sewer rats? should i be constructing a robotic camera to determine its quality in the pipes underneath my street ?
mircea_popescu: if and only if you feel like it.
asciilifeform: ^ good student project btw.
asciilifeform: but yes, vita brevis.
asciilifeform: glad the matter is in good hands...
mircea_popescu: to some people, the notion that men aged > 50 today as well as their antecessors didn't do x y z thing automatically disqualifies them, as men. to some other, it's just ridoinculous bs.
mircea_popescu: what can i say.
asciilifeform recalls mircea_popescu article re: same.
mircea_popescu: but some common ground can be found. "your wife won't do what you tell her to ? what does the possessive denote then ?" for instance. "oh but it hurts. and she finds it disgusting". yeah. that's the fucking point. of course she'll obey an order to eat more chocolate.
asciilifeform: euclid never knew long division. gauss never beheld a pocket calculator. both, in my mind - men, just the same.
mircea_popescu: "no but really, it's more about partnership". i'm sure it is. and it gets tested never. "no, like, once someone gets cancer". tyvm, i prefer to create my own problems.
phf: mircea_popescu: i don't think that's the case. there's some magic happening, because there are no provissions to do a key refresh yet my formerly expired key still works.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform but they are dubious scientists. if euclid walked over here and got into an argument with me over fucking bannach space algebra, pete_dushenski would prolly be right in his wing with a !rate euclid -1 gramps has nfi where his rope ends.
mircea_popescu: phf i doubt assbot actually updates them. it might also not look at expirations, i dunno how kakobrekla did it, maybe he weighs in. ☟︎
asciilifeform: iirc my key expired twice, each time worked after refresh.
asciilifeform: the second was post-assbotization.
mircea_popescu: or in other words, the only reason you think they're still men is because their key expired and you don't have to refresh anything.

mircea_popescu: to whom ?
mircea_popescu: it's not a thing in itself.
asciilifeform: (there is not one shred of reliable evidence that he once fucked any living thing)
asciilifeform: to mircea_popescu.
mircea_popescu: dude i have no idea, the long dead are a 4th fucking gender.
mircea_popescu: what about golda meir ? woman ?
asciilifeform: i thought anything gets to be 'woman' for phree, per mircea_popescu's algo
mircea_popescu has serious trouble evaluating the gender of people who lived in socio-cultural constructs that share little with his own in any sort of term that's meaningful for common parlance.
asciilifeform: there we go.
asciilifeform: so the grandfather-who-had-no-blowjob is every bit the man...?
mircea_popescu: meanwhile, the context of your father shares a lot with your own.
asciilifeform: not so sure that it did.
mircea_popescu: grandfather is only present in the father (and his antecessors) chain.
mircea_popescu: that's how that thing got added in there, outside of that line it's dead.
mircea_popescu: what do you mean "not sure that it did" ?
asciilifeform: share context with mine.
mircea_popescu: ...
mircea_popescu: you are familiar with the basics of human sexuate reproduction i expect ?

mircea_popescu: me too.
mircea_popescu: he seduced her. somehow. right ? hopefully by speech.

mircea_popescu: gotta give it something.

asciilifeform: in fact, at this point if i had to choose whether to spend the rest of my days in the close warm company of cockroaches, XOR with c++ - would likely pick the former..

If a doctor recommends exercise, or garlic, or even aspirin, it's a sidenote, and a quaint one. "Oh, my doctor thinks I should move to Florida for my asthma!" Meanwhile, they'll give out the amoxicillin to every crying toddler, even though they know that that is detrimental. you know why? Because it looks like
mircea_popescu: a treatment. It's not all the doctors' fault; but that's the system.
mircea_popescu: I'm going to repeat this because I know people are going to misunderstand me: the system that you want is impossible to construct in the framework of modern medicine, if for no other reason than doctors don't read-- derive no benefit from reading. The system does not exist, and you cannot create it. Psychiatry is politics; medicine is the justice system. Pharma are the opposing lawyers, and doctors are the jury. Th

binaryatrocity: but as basically another keyserver, no problem with keybase right?
binaryatrocity: I'm not trusting them with my private key, it's just a sane profile to store the public and link me to domains etc i might control?
mircea_popescu: sorta like hanging out at the rape club is a-ok because you're only getting drinks anyway.
mircea_popescu: a perfectly sound if rather uncommon stance.
binaryatrocity: but I left the key to my chastity belt at home, so I'm safe!? :D
binaryatrocity: Just looking for some reasoning behind the hate, feel free to tell me I'm an idiot.
binaryatrocity: Obviously popping your private key into your browser is asking for a bad-time, but in the same vein as pgp.mit.edu is used, it's basically teh same functionality?
punkman: binaryatrocity: one, it is/was all javascript, two, it used to "backup" your private keys to their server
mircea_popescu: not afaik same functionality, no.
binaryatrocity: but handing over your private key is optional, I clearly understand why relinquishing access to your private key is a bad idea
mircea_popescu: but hanging out / using people who do a bad thing, even if they're not doing it to you, is dubious.
binaryatrocity: I see your point, the public-facing info can be useful though, sure there might be no real tangible benefit to tying your github to your gpg key that you couldn't achieve in a different manner, but it does provide a clean interface
mircea_popescu: that's ok, we don't like github either.
binaryatrocity: Sure, self-hosted is king. I follow.
davout: binaryatrocity: how do you "link your GPG to your github"?
mircea_popescu: this is the sort of thing one can't understand from outside.
jurov: "popping your private key into your browser" IS NOT "the same vein as pgp.mit.edu is used" !!!
binaryatrocity: i didn't say that
jurov: where his nonsense comes from??
binaryatrocity: *sigh*
mircea_popescu: lol.
binaryatrocity: I didn't say that at all
jurov: what did you say?
binaryatrocity: Storing your PUBLIC key on Keybase to be access by whomever is the equivalent to uploading your public key to the MIT keyserver
jurov: i see "basically the same functionality"
binaryatrocity: it allows someone who is looking for your public key to access it, based on information they may already know about you
mircea_popescu: pushing a point, sending an ack to a http server is pretty much the same as sending an ack to any other http server.
binaryatrocity: Be that your Name, an associated domain name, or an already-known 'social' account
mircea_popescu: binaryatrocity that's not wqhat it does. what it does is, it allows keybase.io to PRETEND like they're relevant, based on your own work. ☟︎

jurov: binaryatrocity: and then the private keys of other derps leak, how will you explain "but it's not me" ?
ascii_field: ok this is glorious:

mircea_popescu: hey, what's your facebook ?

mircea_popescu: ascii_field you know more poor people buy status symbol items on credit than rich people buy them cash ?
binaryatrocity: Yes, yes I understand that keybase is bad because they allow the option for users to compromise their own private keys
ascii_field: mircea_popescu: i knew, in abstract. but never saw alive.
mircea_popescu: binaryatrocity it's not that simple. that's just a symptom. keybase is bad because is made by the enemy, to suit the agenda of the enemy. the compromise key is just a symptom of this fundamental allignment with evil.
binaryatrocity: Care to elaborate on this 'agenda' some?
mircea_popescu: you mean other than the log does ?

mike_c: the problem with keybase is that it's smoke and mirrors. there isn't any actual link between those things, but it is pretending there is
binaryatrocity: I'd imagine more the other way around, if you already 'followed' me on Twitter, you'd reasonably be able to assume that the other 'accounts' listed are also owned/controlled by that-person
mircea_popescu: the reasonable assumption is a beast that wasn't yet born.
mike_c: why? what would make me take that leap? because they are on the same keybase page that somebody set up?

mike_c: if it were a problem, if anyone cared about keybase

binaryatrocity: I understand what you're saying, Keybase could not exist and you could still do the same process of "proofs", signing a message and positing it to Twitter saying this is me achieves the same thing
jurov: you must say so publicly, not some website automagically for you
binaryatrocity: You are saying so publicly
mircea_popescu: well actually, the saying so on twitter is proof.
binaryatrocity: by signing a message with your PGP key, thus linking hte accounts
binaryatrocity: stop thinking about Keybase at all, if you know me for my code on Github, and you see I've signed some message with my key, and see a message similarly signed on a Twitter account
ascii_field: binaryatrocity: and when twitter posts 'i fuck goats' under your account, how will you ~unlink~ ?
mircea_popescu: there's a huge difference between something like http://deeds.bitcoin-assets.com/bundle-378272.txt and a nude statement on a website.
binaryatrocity: you can reasonably assume that both accounts are owned/controlled by the same person, namely "that guy i know on Github"
binaryatrocity: sure, you have no proof of real-world identity, but you have 'proof' that control of both accounts is had by the same entity
mircea_popescu: moreover unless i want to fuck you i couldn't give less of a shit about your "real world" identity
mircea_popescu: what exactly is it about wisconsin that makes it "real world" anyway.
mircea_popescu: looks pretty fake to me.
binaryatrocity: You could again sign a message with your key stating that Twitter or some other entity is posting to your Twitter account? lol

binaryatrocity: the point is that anyone can go make a Reddit account with my nym

ben_vulpes: Recent changes to the Division Clinton neighborhood have come at the expense of long time residents. With each new change, residents raise their concerns, only to be ignored. Then when the undesirable outcome materializes, the city proposes yet another change that further damages our quality of life. It was evident, when traffic and development projects came to Division, that these would result in more congestion along Clinton. Yet
ben_vulpes: those policies were pushed through. The biggest obstacle to safe biking on Clinton is the excess of parked cars. Will the new parking policies still under discussion help to address this? It seems like Clinton Street should be the number one priority for parking permits and removal of nonresident cars (including those coming from all the new multifamily development). This would be a better restriction than imposing more impediments on

mircea_popescu: no cancer would even return his texts.
ascii_field: mircea_popescu: it is general-purpose american shorthand for 'something productive and cpu-bound'
mircea_popescu: no.
mircea_popescu: it is ustard proxy for "i can do anything"
mircea_popescu: no, you can't.
ascii_field: 'but my cpu can!'
mircea_popescu: you can't do anything, ands you wouldn't know what to do on your own either. this is what being poor means
ascii_field: poor schmuck prolly used to 'folding-at-home' etc.
shinohai: Perhaps my time would be better spent complaining less, and learning how chocolate fountains work.
mircea_popescu: not "not having money"
mircea_popescu: being poor = too dumb to put your shoes on, by yourself.
ascii_field: we have a more specific term, некультурный
mircea_popescu: is the last line in that rant "i'm so sick of you losers i'm going to go find a master to sleep at the feet of" ?
mircea_popescu: because if it isn't, fuck him.
ascii_field: (has very little, if anything, to do with money. can be it while having a billion)
mircea_popescu: "having"
mircea_popescu: under a certain level, the money'[s actually smarter than you.
ascii_field: aha.
mircea_popescu: i never knew i could equally hate both sides of a "debate" to the degree. ☟︎
mircea_popescu: fucking ustards. everything they touch turns to shit both ways. it's like... a bunch of monkeys that invaded a temple, and now not only is everything covered in shit but you gotta listen to arguments in between the set of monkeys that believes in throwing the shit at the walls and the set of monkeys that believes in gently unctioning it on.
mircea_popescu: fucking hell you're all monkeys and you'd look so much better in quihabs i can't even describe it.
mircea_popescu: the "males" especially.
mircea_popescu: !up ascii_field
ascii_field: there is no temple.
ascii_field: perhaps there was in 1995.
ascii_field: today there is just a hut with walls made of straw & monkey shit.
ascii_field: labeled 'temple.'
mircea_popescu: don't give me that, i had computers that worked back when i was playing golden axe on them.
ascii_field: aha, 1995 !
ascii_field hums intro from 'goldenaxe'
mircea_popescu: didja ever finish that ?
ascii_field: sadly not.
jurov: to think that ibm pc was universally reviled like today systemd
ascii_field: jurov: i still revile it
mircea_popescu: ascii_field it had a solo mode remember that ? like, not the proper campaign, just a sort of duel chain.
ascii_field: yes!
mircea_popescu: the LAST item was TWO gold knight guys
mircea_popescu: once i managed to defeat them.
mircea_popescu: and... the game hung.
ascii_field takes off hat
mircea_popescu: my first overflow
mircea_popescu: which i shall never forget.
mircea_popescu: how far did you get ? the two laughing fat dudes with hammers ?
mircea_popescu: the two chicks on silver dragon/velociraptors ?
ascii_field: definitely past the hammers
mircea_popescu: ya those weren't terribly hard, kinda slow.
mircea_popescu: the short guy right ? with the axe ?
ascii_field: not hard. but my attention span was. and this was the time we finally got net access.

pete_dushenski: "Twitter has said it is cutting 336 jobs, roughly 8% of its global workforce, as part of a restructuring of the business. The job cuts will cost between $10m (£6.5m) and $20m in severance pay, while the restructuring will cost between $5m and $15m, the company said." << sex sells. except when it's a platform for sex.
mircea_popescu: heh
ascii_field: the real question is why did they need 4200 employees ?!
ascii_field: what did they ~do~
punkman: shoveling aforementioned shit
punkman: and probably a bunch of them trying to sell ads

mircea_popescu: mostly going to conferences, selling adds, trying to hire more derps in fucktarded locations
mircea_popescu: think bitpay x 100 which is exactly what it was.
mircea_popescu: and i do mean EXACTLY.
mircea_popescu: it's not like a large rock is more complex than a smaller rock. they're rocks. exactly the same thing.
ascii_field bbl
mircea_popescu: 30k is not really notable. that's about 6 months pay (taxes apply to severance too you know) ☟︎

pete_dushenski: "One London-based startup, called Everledger, is developing blockchain tools for the diamond industry, designed to log information on ethical sourcing, insurance claims, and theft investigations, associated with detailed digital descriptions of the valuable stones. CEO Leanne Kemp: "You would be able to identify whether those diamonds are truly certified or not certified," " << so like deedbot but less useful so
pete_dushenski: set to be buried by useless piles of vc crud. good riddance.

pete_dushenski: "As far as Overstock, which has said it plans to offer blockchain-recorded securities to a wider audience, Byrne says the company’s had productive talks with the agency so far. "I think," he says, "that they’re gonna let the crypto-revolution occur." " << oh pleeeease let it occur. with sugar on top.
mircea_popescu: who the fuck gives a shit about "sourcing" of diamonds outside a very cultish narrow segment of bored middle class art majors/social scientards ? ☟︎
mircea_popescu: and who the fuck told these that a "blockchain technologee" works when a centrally controlled group like that is the only thing interested ?
pete_dushenski: buzzword+feelings(+ponzi)=profit
mircea_popescu: let me guess, if tomorrow the USG Comissar uh i mean Czar In Charge Of What This Particular Set Of Idle Fucktards Thinks says that the blockchain impedes great justice and should be edited so and so to promote "fairness" they'll... oppose ? resist ?
mircea_popescu: out of what, their rotten ovaries ?
pete_dushenski: it sorta lulzy how the usg actually has 'czar of xyz'
mircea_popescu: "it's a blockchain in excel on Sarah's computer"
mircea_popescu: go home.
pete_dushenski: as if this somehow made them more transparent and accountable
mircea_popescu: pete_dushenski it was intended as "ironic" usage, originally.
mircea_popescu: like all attempts at humor by the mentally stunted libertard class, it backfired something fierce.
