mircea_popescu: the idea is to not do this too rushedly, but also to not delay pointlessly.
mod6: Right.
mod6: I'm kinda torn, I want us to move forward with 'g', so Cramer-Shoup fits the bill for sure. On the other hand, I'd like to think that over a long interval we might see some interesting submissions eventually.

mircea_popescu: it's not too hard to discover that small tits and annoying, nagging, deeply insecure personality correlate quite well in practice, and so the historical male preference for big tits that actually drove the monstrous mamomegalia that principally distinguishes us from monkeys could well be rather explainable.
mircea_popescu: (and yes - it's not "the ability to communicate", as early darwinists thought, out of their inclination towards pious frauds to favour socialism, that distinguishes us from animals. nor is it "an ability to make and use tools", as the 50s folk retreated to in desperation. no, none of that - just this, that our females have tits so deeply disproportionate to their bodies it is unseen in nature.

phf: i kind of look at it like version 0.5.3. there's barely any development on it, very little actively harmful code, if you don't count asdf 3.* in contribs. it works, it can be studied and improved upon, as it stands it's utterly ignored by the cool kids. there are also of course technical merits, the compiler is conceptually identical and on average almost as good (there were many micro optimizations done by sbcl team, but even they are
phf: tradeoffs) and much better for floating. there's still a tightly integrated interpreter (i heard sbcl brought that back in recent releases), so doing eval even on early 2000s machines is almost instantaneous for repl work. memory usage is much much better (pretty sure sbcl core policy is "memory is cheap")
phf: raymond toy does, almost exclusively, code cleanup, bug fixes and work on floating point code (i think he maintains fortran to lisp compiler, that i think he used to (?) make big consulting money with)

phf: i've been mulling over that question with logs. fwiw, entire log can be kept in memory for analysis, annotation, whatever, 180mb as utf-8 byte arrays. with unicode strings takes up twice the memory on 16-bit cmucl, and ~~4 times on 32-bit sbcl. i'm not yet convinced that transcoding everything you get into string and then transcoding it back to a bytearray onto the wire is the best strategy

mircea_popescu: you'll still going to have to do some porting. just as long as it's not 52 or some other mit-esque idiocy, should really not be a big deal.

mircea_popescu: it doesn't matter when it would apply. it turns out, through bitter experience, that c machines and especially the slaves that feed them can NOT live in a world where there's not strict, table-lookup-based, equivalency between words and chars.

pete_dushenski: asciilifeform: what was your experience ?
asciilifeform: no amount of travel or whatnot can cure a man who experienced western civilization in 1960, and believes that we can bring back the airplanes by cargoculting to what he perceives as the rules of the era.
asciilifeform: likewise, there is the fundamental affliction of the old.
pete_dushenski: o ? and just how well travelled are these 1960ists that you can say 'no amount' will suffice ?
asciilifeform: pete_dushenski: where would you send them to travel ?
pete_dushenski: i wouldn't send them anywhere. it's not for me to lead their lives. but a couple of years in 2nd-tier city in 80s ru wouldn't have hurt.

pete_dushenski: ackman just watches charts and reads emails. so, like argentine, 300dpi is 'wasted'
asciilifeform: pete_dushenski: idk about you, but i edit text on display.
phf: american experience in su was highly mediated. i've had a chance to meet a handful of these "spent some time in su in the 80s" types, and at best their conclusion is "them russkies are no worse then us". not like they would be allowed to spend their leasure time in the company of my grandfather and his friends, etc.
phf: their whole experience of su is through intourist propotainment and politruk control. who's going to let an american nobody in a company of the valuable products of soviet system. it's a needless risk. at best you get invited to some aparatchik family dinner and get to playbelieve "i was even friends with a russian family!"
pete_dushenski: phf: that's very much why i specified '2nd-tier' ru city, though i suppose this was based on the presumption that most of the mediation was happening in larger urban centres, which i suppose statistically it must have been, but whether that made it easier or harder to break mediated mold in smaller centres isn't thereby granted as being in any way obvious, admittedly.
pete_dushenski: asciilifeform: editing text is 99% of what i do as well
asciilifeform: phf has it.
asciilifeform: i met these tourists, here.
asciilifeform: mega-riot.
phf: you don't seem to grok how "mediated" works in this case, you or your tour is assigned a dedicated kgb handler and a politruk. if you're not part of tour, then you are assigned those. personally. sop for any sort of interaction with outsiders. politruk is ~personally responsible~ for you not doing anything dodgy. your level of artificial integration depends on how important you are and how experienced your handlers are at running this
phf: particular show.
asciilifeform: and 'dodgy' can include things pete_dushenski wouldn't think of.
pete_dushenski: phf: you're right, that's far more 'mediated' than i'd understood to be the case previously.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu likes to remember the jeans
asciilifeform: so ru folk traded their sovereignty for jeans.
asciilifeform: it is not clear to me that this was a smart thing.
asciilifeform: pete_dushenski, phf: even today, a 'human' visiting orc lands is 'mediated', but largely by his own head
asciilifeform: but just as effectivelyt
asciilifeform: (he can't speak the language, so he will only end up in designated zoos, etc.)
phf: heh actually some boomer at russian cultural center was once telling me of his adventures, he proudly told me that him and his wife had a friend in russia and it was even! a kgb guy. the implication is that he was so cool, he even got to meet a bonafide kgb, befriend him and that was his best friend. that's your handler, you dumbass.
phf: oh man, plenty of these people at russian cultural center in DC, can have a little study roster
asciilifeform: phf: i think they're mostly old/dead now
asciilifeform: but perhaps not all.
asciilifeform: i ran into a few when i went to 'rur' at the czech embassy.
phf: yeah, probably on the way out. i was there last about 8 years ago
