assbot: Coinbase Runs Bitcoin XT in Production as Pilot Test ... ( http://bit.ly/1UfFhSY )
shinohai: thx
pete_dushenski: ;;later tell joseph_young if you ever want to actually get paid for writing bitcoin news, pitch a piece to BingoBoingo/qntra.
gribble: The operation succeeded.
shinohai: Dear God newsbtc looks like an ad agency took a shit on it
pete_dushenski: kid has clearly completed his 6 month yeshiva
pete_dushenski: shinohai: with all my blockers and whatnot the page tries to load in perpetuity, to no avail.
pete_dushenski: how many 'shares' ? who the fuck knows or cares !
shinohai: Same here, I just get empty spaces with <content> tags
pete_dushenski: mya
pete_dushenski: though everytime young links to contravex, it's always some OTHER scam rip-off site that sends me a pingback, NEVER newsbtc.
pete_dushenski: mebbe that's just the internet for ya
pete_dushenski: re : newsbtc, you have to love a site that claims 1 mn+ monthly 'impressions' and either has 0 or 1 comment per post. mebbe it's the disqus. who knows.
shinohai: If they get 1mn views a month I'd be shocked. Coinbrief claimed the same thing and a year later no one cares.
pete_dushenski: same as reddit : kabillion views, all (meat)robots, all worth approx the toilet paper they were printed on.
mircea_popescu is vaguely curious what daily pageview okcupid claims. probably in the same 1-2mn range.
ben_vulpes: VYOOOOOOZ
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 87556 @ 0.00050387 = 44.1168 BTC [+] {6}
pete_dushenski: mircea_popescu: what'd that be then, a third a trilema ? (or just the 'truh' ?)
pete_dushenski: part-way up the 'i' mountain
mircea_popescu: trilema doesn't really get 1mn/day unless it's some special day.
mircea_popescu looks
pete_dushenski: what day ?
pete_dushenski: month !!!
mircea_popescu: ah. well 1mn/month is really not that much if you think about it.
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 2900 @ 0.0004961 = 1.4387 BTC [-] {2}
shinohai: https://www.reddit.com/r/Bitcoin/comments/3yoa47/you_can_now_create_op_hodl_address_to_lock_your/cyf9pmi <<< kek
assbot: squarepush3r comments on You can now create OP_HODL address to lock your bitcoin ... ( http://bit.ly/1UfHcH9 )
mircea_popescu: hahaha op_hodl ftw.
shinohai: Come back in 33 years, maybe you'll understand it then.
mircea_popescu: the only actual effect of this particular nonsense will be, to fill the bars with dudes who instead of "baby, i'm a producer" or "baby, zuckerberg stole my idea" will go "baby i have a billion Bit-cions locked in the future." ☟︎
shinohai: Seems kinda pointless to me, though btcdrak couldn't stop talking bout it before becoming persona non grata.
mircea_popescu: hey BingoBoingo ? you recall wheree the link is to that announcvement where they used the novel technique to select bacteria and got a new usuable molecule
mircea_popescu: heh look at that corante's down./
