felipelalli: Hi mircea_popescu ! yes, you are right!! ahahh. It's incredible that she doesn't renounce. That kind of people is always a dog with a bone.
felipelalli: in the day of first and most important impeachment election the people celebrates more than World Cup final!
felipelalli: I was in the same place, this street: http://www.portalcbncampinas.com.br/wp-content/uploads/2016/04/6eb6b6f4-39a8-41b3-99ca-7c9f4c1982c4-310x165.jpg
felipelalli: everybody watching like the World Cup final.
felipelalli: I had an issue in my connection. Did you guys receive my lasts 4 messages?
mircea_popescu: seems da silva is gonna end up in jail too
mircea_popescu: felipelalli sure.
mircea_popescu: oh and maduro is besieging the parliament lol. pretty lulzy south american spring
felipelalli: mircea_popescu, everyone here hope so.
mircea_popescu: i thought he was very populare
felipelalli: I don't understand how they can survive with that hyperinflation
felipelalli: *was*
felipelalli: but, to be honest he is still yet, but only with really poor people
mircea_popescu: felipelalli actually lots of the runners working for people here are venezuelan chix.
felipelalli: really? how?
mircea_popescu: well, ran out of venezuela one way or another, needed a job.
felipelalli: ah! are you living in Argentina, I have forgot that!
mircea_popescu: yea
felipelalli: at least they didn't come to Brazil yet! maybe because we're very bad too. everything is collapsing, as in the book Atlas Shrugged
mircea_popescu: also kinda hot
felipelalli: and in Argentina the new president is really better or same shit?
felipelalli: the people in Brazil say the new president is God comparing to that woman.
mircea_popescu: he's competent, economically. better, what's that. he's a faithful usg muppet, working to make the place more in line with washington's interest. ☟︎
mircea_popescu: which is all the better, argentines are imbeciles.
felipelalli: lol
felipelalli: I was only once in Argentina, in a Bitcoin event
mircea_popescu: most annoying dilemma, do you want to live on a farm, or do you want to live in a republic of farm animals ?!
felipelalli: ahahah
mircea_popescu: fuckall, i'd much prefer living in a city among civilised folk. but this isn't on offer.
mircea_popescu: anyway. he's better, he's turning the republic of cattle into rancho cucamonga.
felipelalli: hahah
felipelalli: I am a voluntaryist, and we are "splited" about the situation here.
felipelalli: because Dilma made a lot of voluntaryists!!
mircea_popescu: it's unclear to me what the protestors actually want.
mircea_popescu: they'll replace this lot with... what, aliens ?
felipelalli: ahhahah
mircea_popescu: new politicians. well... guess what, the new politicians are hungry.
felipelalli: the protesters are conservatives, they are just "anti-communist"
felipelalli: not anti-gov
mircea_popescu: seems these communists were really very savagely capitalistic though
mircea_popescu: stealing from "the state" to make one's own fortune is how capitalism always starts.
felipelalli: agreed
felipelalli: actually they are not personally "so rich" like they could be. They are sick, they just want to impose their communist agenda
mircea_popescu: anyway. i don't think anyone actulaly understands what they're doing or knows why.
mircea_popescu: i bet if you torture dilma in like a medieval dungeon to tell you the truth, why the fuck she did it,
mircea_popescu: she'll be like "uh i dunno... i thought it's what's done... everyone else was doing it"
felipelalli: I think the extreme left is going to disappear for some years, at least.
mircea_popescu: bitch... you're the fucking president, your life philosophy is "hurr, i'll just do what everyone does" ?
felipelalli: lol
mircea_popescu: eh, the extreme left consists of "herp, i'm really lazy, things should happen". that's nevere going anywhere.
felipelalli: the people here are crazy for "rights"
mircea_popescu: it'll disappear five minutes after farts disappear.
felipelalli: we have a *lot* of "rights
mircea_popescu: yeah im sure you do.
felipelalli: but no one of these rights actually really works lol
felipelalli: the people here are really stupid too, including the rich ones.
mircea_popescu: do you know what's the difference between a guy from brazil and a guy from kentucky ?
felipelalli: the rich are anti-comm but they are more "statits" than anyone. They really love a strong strong State
BingoBoingo: lol boatoshi
felipelalli: no, what is?
BingoBoingo: ;;later tell pete_dushenski Where's the Albert wildfire piece. I think you already know what the hook should be...
gribble: The operation succeeded.
mircea_popescu: the guy from kentucky has half a dozen broken cars on plastic foil in front of his house ; the guy from brazil has half dozen broken rights on plastic foil in front of his house.
mircea_popescu: neither gets them anywhere.
felipelalli: BingoBoingo, I have translated that news to Brazilian fb group and they loved the "Boatoshi" hahahh
BingoBoingo: sweet
felipelalli: mircea_popescu, true ahha
mircea_popescu: hm, i wonder if a portuguese qntra section'd be worth it.
mircea_popescu: yet in other cunts, http://65.media.tumblr.com/82a1726ecd72379c6c1eb3dddf149e8f/tumblr_nni0fzwinf1txqtqio1_1280.jpg
felipelalli: mircea_popescu, maybe not yet, not so many active people here, and most are really stupid yet. They are learning yet what Bitcoin actually is.
mircea_popescu: aha
felipelalli: now they are in love with ETH
felipelalli: and altcoins
mircea_popescu: lolk
felipelalli: they are masochists, not in BSDM sense lol
felipelalli: I have blocked more than 20 already hahah
felipelalli: some of them says Bitcoin will fatally dies because is "too old", like an old car.
mircea_popescu: lol
felipelalli: but they don't understand money is better if older.
felipelalli: but with this incredible fall of ETH they are just quiet now hahah
mircea_popescu: heh.
felipelalli: at least they stop to talk about that shit of big blocks hahah
felipelalli: they finally understand that the block aways tends to be full of rubish. Just pay 0.01 $ more and you are free from the tx mud.
mircea_popescu: fancy that, the emergency went away.
felipelalli: mircea_popescu, yes, suddenly.
felipelalli: I think Theymos made the right choice to censor (what lead to a split) the subreddit. Now /r/btc is filled with a bunch of derps; it's amazing how they attract each other! <amazing company>
mircea_popescu: myeah. contrary to fiatista ideology, the only thing large groups of "people themselves" do is collapse on their own shitweight.
felipelalli: "fiatista ideology" auehauaueh
mircea_popescu: no but there's this thing "oh, you want more users" , "oh what people say/think matters"
mircea_popescu: yeah right.
felipelalli: yes.. Do you know what is HuE BR? On the Internet we laugh like that: "auheuaheuahe" http://www.wowgirl.com.br/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/hue.png
felipelalli: do you know that? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7PjrTOjxjxk lol
mircea_popescu: like a meme ?
felipelalli: yes
felipelalli: it's about how the BR HuE destroy everything ahaha
mircea_popescu: what is it, a sort of orc ?

mircea_popescu: trinque what are your thoughts re importing into deedbot the ENTIRE key db as owned by phuctor ?
mircea_popescu: on some level it seems one shouldn't be precluded in rating a key merely because the owner of that key failed to register it with teh republic.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: l0l! yer gonna love the n*log(n) lookups
asciilifeform: tanstaafl (tm) (r)
mircea_popescu: kik ?
asciilifeform: 'there aint no such thing as a free lunch'
punkman: you don't have to import it into gpg
punkman: (all at once)
mircea_popescu: seems to me it'd be a tree, 40 deep. whats teh big deal
asciilifeform always pronounced it like Schutzstaffel
asciilifeform: the big deal is that a db that gets ~added to~ is not so simple as 'tree of 40 levels'
trinque: mircea_popescu: I'm for it.
trinque: asciilifeform: how big is the whole key archive?
asciilifeform: trinque: ~6GB
mircea_popescu: trinque asciilifeform has some sort of point, BUT, i think it should be approachable. needs some cranium grease put into it all.
asciilifeform: anyway it's doable, but you gotta think about what happens when enemy gets wind and generates a quintillion crud keys.
trinque: postgresql can probably handle that
trinque: I've seen bigger DBs
mircea_popescu: in any case, the driver for this thought process in my head is, believe it or not, the messing around with phf re beefy few days ago. seems a deeply valuable learning experience, to be exposed to large sets in this sense.
trinque: I'm gonna need to upgrade the box, but that's been on my list for a while anyway
asciilifeform: perhaps some of this could happen on the massive 'dulap'
trinque: it heads towards deedbot being a keyserver too, already sorta is with $key
asciilifeform: where the db already lives.
mircea_popescu: trinque so it does.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform nah. the whole point is to duplicate work.
mircea_popescu: (in retrospect, from my very instructive republican experience, im discovering that the principal job of management actually is to decide when to and when not to duplicate work. it's a much deeper point than it seems.)
asciilifeform: trick is that it works best if you have the duplicated thing done in ~improved~ way rather than ad-hoc
mircea_popescu: depends. if the point is the end result, then yes. if the point is the person doing it, then no.
asciilifeform: noshit. hence homework.
asciilifeform: 'but pythagoras already did this!111'
mircea_popescu: note that ~all us "Science and Engineering" consists of young men doing homework in a poorly managed, ineptly driven manner collectively known as "phd"
mircea_popescu: nobody else does anything. perhaps for structural reasons.
mircea_popescu: andre "what happens when enemy gets wind" 1. this is a very valuable canary for such a wonderous change in the enemy ; 2. time offers a natural breaking point, we're protected well by the configuration of the field.
asciilifeform: how does (2) work ?
mircea_popescu: "we will have all keys prior to T, and add new ones on the basis of X spamtrap only"
mircea_popescu: best of both worlds.
asciilifeform: the other thing is,
asciilifeform: as i currently understand, most uncommitted derps lose their old keyz ten times before breakfast every morning.
asciilifeform: so what'd be the point of stowing the junkyard.
mircea_popescu: yes, but for instance i want to be able to nuke some keys of some people who will not come here if it kills them.
asciilifeform: how often does somebody show up with a '90s key here
mircea_popescu: curtrently this is dark info.
mircea_popescu: it shouldn't be dark info.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform the matter is not what the derp uses it for. the matter is that i want to mark specific, extant and known items.
trinque: asciilifeform: key still identifies a point in time if it produced any signed material
mircea_popescu: recall, the WoT is NOT!!! about the user in question. but about his deeds and their reflection. only.
asciilifeform: what i do see, is that this'd be good insurance for the spamocalypse when we start ~demanding~, e.g., pre-2020 keys, even to be LOOKED AT
asciilifeform: and suddenly ancient keys become sc4mz0r currency.
mircea_popescu: there's also that lobe, as distant and sf-ish as it may sound.
asciilifeform: imho we're nearly there even now.
mircea_popescu: i don't currently see much value in someone bringing old unknown key rather than freshly made.
mircea_popescu: but that aside, who knowns, mebbe.
asciilifeform: but, handily, 'p' actually has 'if [this program evals to true] i rate [key k] [rating r]' as primitive...
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: ~today~ no such value. ~tomorrow~, when the ocean of shit overflows - there will be.
mircea_popescu: and in today's breakfast helper, http://66.media.tumblr.com/ae8701991aba86b03f6fb3ef0ae6de37/tumblr_nq9mclHDz81tgdz6ro1_1280.jpg

asciilifeform: aha.
mircea_popescu: you're not only a stakebunny, but also a total stake slut! keep changing them.
mircea_popescu: anyway, perhaps the next one's satisfactorily ribbed or what. ☟︎
asciilifeform: found a somewhat more modest but 'you get xxxxx done, we pay' sort of deal.
jurov: oh, how comes no one is doing vanity rsa keys generation already?
asciilifeform: jurov: https://evil32.com links to one

asciilifeform: thing is, no sane person WANTS a vanity - that is CONSTRAINED SPACE - rsa key
mircea_popescu: "Safety First : Do Not Fist Android Girls."
asciilifeform: unless for specific purpose of fucking someone
asciilifeform: in bitcoin addr there is a ~hash~
asciilifeform: so it is not the same.
asciilifeform: vanity HASH is as strong as the hash algo
asciilifeform: vanity rsa constrains your privkey space.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform yes but he has a point, the derp brain is memetic not rational. "the x of y"

asciilifeform might actually resume being useful again soon.
asciilifeform: just as well that i am leaving rupture farmz, because a few honest folks there finally informed me of what i already knew, which is that i was being 'warehoused'
asciilifeform: (kept around for scutwork after having refused to take holy orders)
mircea_popescu: do you tell them during interview that a) everything you agree to will have to be presented in writing ; b) you will not do x y or z and soo n ?
asciilifeform: even simpler than there, they make exactly one $item and that's it.
asciilifeform: and yeah it took a few rehashes of contract.
asciilifeform: quite the rarity, and may be 'too good to be true' etc.
asciilifeform: consider, 99+% of the employment in my field is raw usg.
mircea_popescu: you need better fields.
asciilifeform: (there is an unknown percentage, to be fair, of 'nonemployment' work also, i.e. 0day market, overlapping with the 99, but i have - as previously discussed - no 'in' to it.)
asciilifeform: didn't we discuss the whole 'i am not voluntarily being 19 with none-of-the-upsides again' thing ?
mircea_popescu: lol. "the sewage goes into this pond i live in" "you need to live in a better pond" "didn't we discuss the whole i'm not walking on land again thing???"
asciilifeform: with that in mind, i am good at a reasonable breadth of things, but again 99% of the employment in them, in as far as i can access, is usg.
mircea_popescu: well ok mr turtle, so whadda ya want then.
asciilifeform: but i would happily help zimbabwe build its first nuke, say, if it called.
mircea_popescu: cuz this "i want FOR X to Y" ain't a want, it's a voodoo.
asciilifeform: but - mega-unsurprise - no calls.
mircea_popescu: word.
mircea_popescu: stop wanting other people to.
mircea_popescu: it's the #1 symptom of esl-ism, and as unbefitting as it's unseemly.
asciilifeform: well, not being a demigod like mircea_popescu , i actually rely on other people to want to.
asciilifeform: because otherwise i dun eat.
mircea_popescu: that's a red herring. aptly displayed on my terminal in red font.
asciilifeform: i can't simply shit forth gold.

asciilifeform: May 06 12:50:33 <mircea_popescu>and in other "internet security" lulz, https://www.virustotal.com/es-ar/url/900d5651bf561ce804766d1a8f3483080a0e3879f16bfb7f820fdffef82fb807/analysis/1462553268 << what is notable about this sample ?
mircea_popescu: that they don't fucking detect it
mircea_popescu: and the sucuri bs also fucks up the url by lowercasing it
mircea_popescu: ie, half-assed effort.
mircea_popescu: sweet trinque
mircea_popescu: that settles that.
mircea_popescu: $google sexiest man alive

mircea_popescu: obviously, a wikipedia page.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: a very large share of the samples on vt are 'not detected'
asciilifeform: because av is elementarily braindamaged concept
mircea_popescu: kinda my point.
asciilifeform: likewise a large fraction of samples on vt don't even ~run there~
asciilifeform: because they detect their (very easily detectable) vm, etc.
mircea_popescu: "experts" in sticking their finger up their own ass and tasting it afterwards.
asciilifeform: aha, and google bought for $B.
asciilifeform: then when i and a buncha blokes opened a co that offered thing that would analyze crapware WITHOUT USING VM, that is, on ordinary x86 (but with some hardware magic),
asciilifeform: nobody bought.
mircea_popescu: it's not a matter of "build better mouse trap" only.
mircea_popescu: the part where you assault, arson, rape and pillage is also required.
asciilifeform: which takes capital.
asciilifeform: (or, i suppose, demigods)
mircea_popescu: demigods, demiassholes, whadda hell's da difference.
asciilifeform: whatever you want to call it, it was an elementary case of 'you made something that actually works? good for you? now eat shit and die.' vs 'yacht rat? welcome aboard, your shit is sausage here'
mircea_popescu: notrly.
mircea_popescu: but aaaanyway.
asciilifeform: tip to aspiring virii authors:
asciilifeform: vt STILL names its winblowz vm TEQUILABOOMBOOM
asciilifeform: ~all~ of them.
mircea_popescu: lmao.
asciilifeform: i shit thee not.
asciilifeform: (not that you actually ~need~ this, there are 1,001 ways to detect vm, and against 101 there are no countermeasures)
asciilifeform: that experience is what really woke me up to the dead-endity of the field
asciilifeform: (i.e. the only folks seriously willing to pay for serious crapware analysis are usg and cn, and i'm not in either's wot)
asciilifeform: which in turn is logical, being that these are the 2 large orgs stuck on, each for its own strange reasons, winblowz
mircea_popescu: quite.
mircea_popescu: the third party that's interested is only interested in raping them, and generally does not believe in employees.
asciilifeform: or in contractors, consultants, pretty much any work-for-money arrangement
mircea_popescu: aha. make your own holes.
asciilifeform: and what kind of luser works anyway!1111 winnerz eat from their 10,000 heads of cattle and rent from the baronial landz!11111111111
mircea_popescu: make your own holes.
asciilifeform: speaking of drilling fuckable openings, the 'oss' thread appears to be wholly dead.
mircea_popescu: doh.
asciilifeform: just as mircea_popescu said, it was a pointless exercise.
mircea_popescu: where's the kaiser discussion.
mircea_popescu: http://btcbase.org/log/2016-05-01#1460247 ☝︎
asciilifeform: http://btcbase.org/log/2016-05-01#1460246 ☝︎
asciilifeform: ah yeah.
mircea_popescu: had you said something THEY COULD HAVE USED, they would have. as you said nothing that makes them any better, it never happened.
mircea_popescu: waste of your time.
mircea_popescu: and this is exactly how it goes with "we just want to ask you a few questions", which is why you don't talk to the police, and everything else.
asciilifeform: at this point even cocker spaniel knows that 'no good comes from talking to cop, even in principle'
mircea_popescu: nobody is going to go "oh i am so impressed by the unexpected arguments this young chap has espoused on the internet, i'm going to now change my priors" anymore than you're going to go "o hey, the irc has convinced me, i am now finally moving out of the us". people've made their life choices, and that's that, reality exists only to either promote their personal stupidity or otherwise be ignored as best it can.
asciilifeform: it occasionally does happen that somebody gets pushed into cognitive dissonance mode and spews chunks upon encountering undigestible fact
mircea_popescu: true.
mircea_popescu: but age and poverty better predictors than intelligence, for that behaviour
mircea_popescu: intelligence is counterpredictive, and education counterpredictive^3.5
asciilifeform: happens to young and old alike
asciilifeform: and i don't see the stupid being more likely to conform to fact than anyone else
mircea_popescu: just some empirical observations. possibru useless.
mircea_popescu: certainly useless in any individual case, which is the bane of statistics.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu seems to idealize the poor and stupid because - i suppose - when they come with cunts, those work just as well as any other cunt
asciilifeform: but in any other context they have no redeeming value whatsoever
asciilifeform: and aren't any kind of good company.
asciilifeform: i'd rather train seals.
mircea_popescu: this may be true.
mircea_popescu: are usure tho, that nothing in this world reduces to cunt physio-anatomy, everything else is special and distinct from cunt ?
asciilifeform: i obviously can't speak for mircea_popescu , but personally even cunt is not a get-out-of-biodiesel-free card as far as i'm concerned.
asciilifeform: the bovine has exactly 2 uses:
asciilifeform: 1) milk
asciilifeform: 2) meat.
asciilifeform: (there was once a (3) - plow, but i prefer tractor)
asciilifeform: i suppose i omitted leather.
trinque: how many humans is enough to own an earth?
asciilifeform: ?
trinque: it's relevant.
trinque: losing females is more costly to population than losing males
trinque: said the sexual dynamics of everything ever
asciilifeform: noshit.jpg
asciilifeform: trinque: what's it mean to 'own an earth' ?
asciilifeform: quit
asciilifeform: argh
asciilifeform bbl
trinque: it means to have your species as the dominant predatory species in a given area
trinque: rather, not area, the desirable parts of the whole earth
trinque: I don't particularly mind the fact that, having covered the whole habitable earth, we killed off most of the species that used to eat us.
trinque: whether or not this peasantry is undesirable, I think having the land occupied by humans has benefits.
trinque: how many humans on earth does it take to raise an army worth a shit? obviously there is not a single answer to that question because then the other guy gets n+1 and it runs away until you're back at now.
trinque: this idea that we depopulate the earth down to a million individuals or something is not unlike the nerd fantasy that he'd really like his brain to live in a jar in some robot than in his body
trinque: how many humans does it take to own a solar system?
jurov: planning a family?
trinque: lol
trinque: incidentally, the WoT may be the only social system capable of operating at the scale of a planetary system.
phf: pretty safe bet, if a111 is missing, logs dead, but no worries they are still being recored with my bouncer. i'm almost done with a better logger, that reconnects. will take it live over the weekend
mircea_popescu: trinque why's more than a coupla needed ?
mircea_popescu: trinque> whether or not this peasantry is undesirable, I think having the land occupied by humans has benefits. << depends, dude. argentina would be certainly better if current population got wiped.
mircea_popescu: so would bakersfield ; or the whole state of pennsylvania
mircea_popescu: the one thing agar jars produce consistently is failure. human population no better than random chunk of bacteria in this regard.
danielpbarron: oh hey alikim you figured it out?
alikim: so scream much energy... I found that key on another computer
danielpbarron: $ v23F111CBE45F138425CD8023C5A3E2D289F04C0CEEE0A561846745F05D0A1531

deedbot: danielpbarron rated alikim 1 << Euloran who likes to hack the client on winbl0wz
danielpbarron: $gettrust deedbot alikim
deedbot: L1: 0, L2: 2 by 2 connections.
alikim: I don't like it, it's necessity
danielpbarron: it what, winbl0wz?
alikim: no in what kind of shit the client is
danielpbarron: oh hah, yeh
danielpbarron: but you like the on winbl0wz part
alikim: ideal client would be a console app, it doesn't need 3d engine or visuals
danielpbarron: yes! plz write!
danielpbarron: although that won't always be true, but certainly for the time being all that's needed is a console
alikim: I need to dig into how to run a copy of geometry on the client and that's too much for me, otherwise I could reuse network classes from the package and other stuff
alikim: was tempting though
