mircea_popescu: asciilifeform dude's something else, linux client is so stable people run it from wed to wed (server updates and brief downtime weds) ; jurov made a windows version that's just as stable - everyone else who runs it has no conn problems.
mircea_popescu: then this hack went in and grubstreet'd all over, to the point he crashes all the time, so he made himself a watchdog. which i suppose needs a watchdog of its own
mircea_popescu: and will resist any attempt to be helped - such as for instance by people who actually understand computing reading his abomination and laughing at him - to the degree he'll get kicked out.

shinohai had dream last night of asciilifeform 's head in a jar futurama style.
mircea_popescu: to quote romania's nat'l poet, "nu cerceta aceste legi, caci esti nebun de le-ntelegi"

BingoBoingo: Aha, except they actually reversed the flow of the river at some point so new shit goes to Mississippi river after crossing state.

mircea_popescu: where did we go wrong!
mircea_popescu: Framedragger iirc no girls actually wanted to be on tinder because dudes'd just hit on everyone and then not show up.
mircea_popescu: wotproblem of sorts.
Framedragger: ya, true. some dudes are selective but most are just desperate and/or can't be bothered. different algos so to speak, heh
mircea_popescu: historically, the "whatever" algo is actually pretty successful.
asciilifeform: i thought it was because gurl already knows where the local mircea_popescu lives
Framedragger: (girls are on there tho)
mircea_popescu: certainly how everyone here present came to be.
asciilifeform: and needs no appz
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform women like variety just like normal people do.
Framedragger: yeah seems to have worked for these low entropy pockets around stars, pretty nifty!!
asciilifeform: i like variety, but dun eat from garbage, say
asciilifeform: variety tends to mean something quite specific for most folx
mircea_popescu: varietits.
mircea_popescu: anyway, garbage has a tense relationship with sexuality.
mircea_popescu: possibly because of the officially-intolerable http://btcbase.org/log/2016-05-24#1471110 ☝︎
a111: Logged on 2016-05-24 11:33 mircea_popescu: in fact the historical justification for broad female slavery is that the sex is better that way.
Framedragger: " garbage has a tense relationship with sexuality." << related film: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1488163/
mircea_popescu: the whole impetuus of, say, romeo and juliet is the respective famblies going "op is garbage!!1". the lady an' the tramp is pretty much the "modern democracy" attempt at subverting and perhaps reclaiming the trite truth of the previous generations, ie, that nothing gets a gent going quite like the lady's maid.
mircea_popescu: Framedragger meh, lost me at "elderly". but the korine name is vaguely familiar.
Framedragger: yeah korine is an interesting guy. the film itself is random as fuck. literally folks humping trash, and just doing other bizarre things throughout film. i'd say it's an intereseting experience, to watch it i mean, but i believe when i watched it i was on a bit of acid. dunno how it would have got with me being completely sane..

Framedragger: (..in other news hosters seem to cave in to the "we gun ban your ip cause we saw three TCP SYN packets to :22 on our block" threats and do not allow any scanning whatsoever. online.net may be the exception and are cooperative, will see how they tolerate some scanz)
Framedragger: (again, general ipv4 mapping is no prob, it's the more particular ssh key extraction that is slow and very hax0ry apparently)
Framedragger: (but i didn't spend much time dealing with this lately, busy with afk stuff. however will return to quest soon)
mircea_popescu: Framedragger be specific.
Framedragger: "Dear Sir / Madam,
Framedragger: Scanning ports is forbidden on our network. We cannot even do some exeption in our anti-hack detecting system just for your server." <- this is e.g. kimsufi/OVH who are otherwise not complete govt bitches (they appeal court orders, ran wikileaks servers, lots tor exit nodes etc - not to say that this amount to too much)
Framedragger: more or less same from hetzner, digital ocean, and a local lithuanian provider which i've been using for a few years
mircea_popescu: so they banned you or what exactly happened ? you read their verbiage ?
Framedragger: ah - sorry for not being specific - no i ceased activities,and they were fine. OVH i didn't even try, i sent a query first like a good house guest
mircea_popescu: i still can't piece this together. let's try a sane example format :
Framedragger: digital ocean e.g. - scanned more than querter of ipv4 space using TCP SYN (masscan) - so just to see which :22 hosts are up - received numerous abuse complaints from all over the net, all forwarded to me
Framedragger: pleaded with them and they said okok we won't ban but don't do this again
mircea_popescu: i rented a [vps/dedicated/colocated] machine from X, i sent a total of Y packets of so and so in Z interval ; they <changed my logs and stole my remaining time|sent me support ticket complaining|etc>"
mircea_popescu: that sorta thng
Framedragger: now i'll try scaleway / online.net and i don't use them for anything else so i'm fine with being banned. they said OK to my "responsible academic scanning" query. doesn't mean they'll follow through. but i'll just keep scanning / doing ssh extraction there, and rsyncing often, so that if/when i get eventually banned this wouldn't be a problem.
mircea_popescu: mk
Framedragger: right, i'll do that, but later. sorry for not being specific, just wanted to rant, which is not too constructive

mircea_popescu: to bolster the leverage point asciilifeform : consider reading merely the list of traded items in "london labour and the london poor" (an otherwise unfrequentable pile of steaming socialistoid shit).
mircea_popescu: cca mid 19th century - definitely post industrial age - people actually traded used underwear. not just young women's used underwear either.
mircea_popescu: shirt fronts.
mircea_popescu: labour was so ill esteemed it was actually worth someone's time to take out a shirt front off a shirt and hem in a replacement.
mircea_popescu: fucking phones aren't worth the fix today. but then - shirts.
mircea_popescu: shinohai well, the usg party is ever less confident they'll get much over a summer of forks ; "ethereum is good" was the backup.

Framedragger: mircea_popescu: `nslookup` should say; maybe your overzealous hosts policy heh
mircea_popescu: vc so how did you hear about bitcoin ?
vc: idk I first got into it in 2010 I think?
shinohai: $v 11CE7949F6FA74F604A385035A422F9C91218E367F81A8ADD854B3E71B6579A7
deedbot: shinohai rated vc 1 << Thanks for mail@nigge.rs as well
vc: BTC was $0.8 - $0.9
mircea_popescu: did you do anything ? services, whatever ?
vc: mostly just between friends, and buying stuff with bitcoin when it was available
vc: I gave away several bitcoin when they were worth nothing :)
mircea_popescu: you ever heard about eulora ?
vc: nope
mircea_popescu: how about sec sending supoenas to this romanian-based dude back in 2012, when they were posturing about satoshi dice ?
vc: I do remember satoshi dice, though I don't remember buch past that
vc: much*
mircea_popescu: interesting how fragmented this supposed "bitcoin community" actually is. alright, so what's your plan with the hoster ? what was it, cock.li ?
vc: the email site is https://cock.li/ , the VPS provider is https://box.cock.li/
vc: the former is not-for-profit, the second is for-profit
mircea_popescu: do you plan to pivot from corporate life to independence with it ? or is it just a hobby on the side ? for the lulz ? for the whats ?
vc: the server hardware I purchased can host a maximum of 280 clients with some more memory and disk space, so after I get it up and running and stable then I'm probably going to go for that
vc: I don't think those are necessarily mutually exclusive ;)
mircea_popescu: hehe. so what do you mean "get it up and running and stable" ?
vc: I have literally 0 experience running a VPS provider
mircea_popescu: what do you have experience with ?
phf: "Despite what some may tell you, cock.li does not tolerate abuse of its servers. [...] Due to my privacy policy which protects my user's data, you will probably not receive a response." nice
vc: I have lots of experience as a linux sysadmin, which helps ;)
mircea_popescu: that's not really 0 then, is it ?
vc: I dream of a world where I incorporate cock.li and operate and expand a semi-trolling corporation
vc: the way I had it described to me is "almost like ironic professionalism"
vc: also yes, fair point :)
mircea_popescu: do you happen to know the republic has been looking for an actual republican isp ?
mircea_popescu: actually, you even heard of tmsr ?
vc: I take inspiration from GNAA in that regard, though I think I could make it into an actual profit-producing company
vc: I have no idea of the republic or tmsr I just heard shit was hot and poppin' here so I joined
mircea_popescu: pretty cool. so... are you married ?
vc: nope, I'm 21
vc: I almost got married though a couple years ago
mircea_popescu: what broke it off ?
vc: (after a 6 year relationship, so it's not like I was jumping in feet-first)
vc: oh, you know, reasons ;)
mircea_popescu: as in, other cocks ?
vc: turned out to be one of the best decisions I've made
vc: haha
vc: not getting married has allowed me to pursue travelling the world and pursuing other ventures
vc: only after it was all over did I realize I'm too damn young to get married
mircea_popescu: so where've you been besides maine and bucharest ?
mircea_popescu: $up vc
deedbot: vc voiced for 30 minutes.
mircea_popescu: you can also self-up by telling the bot $up in a pm
vc: nowhere that's public information :@) though I plan on backpacking most of europe next year
vc: and asia the year after that
mircea_popescu: sounds like a plan eh. so what's your favourite romanian dish ?
vc: cow bone soup O_O
vc: I had lunch at Excelsior in Bucharest, if you know that place
mircea_popescu: ie oxtail ?
mircea_popescu: i do.
vc: I went with an older friend who was a government official before he retired
vc: crazy place
mircea_popescu: so what don't you like about it ?
mircea_popescu: the place, i mean.
vc: Excelsior? Nah it was great
vc: it
mircea_popescu: nah, the country.
vc: ah
vc: I don't really know anything I don't like, though I did see a gypsy shitting in the street about a month ago, that was pretty unsettling
mircea_popescu: better in the street than in your enchilada though.
vc: hah
phf: wait till you make it to asia..
vc: how do I do this fancy OTP thing
mircea_popescu: alrighty, anything you want to tell teh readership in closing ?
vc: yes, always follow you are dreams
mircea_popescu: cool.
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo whadda ya think ? acceptabru ? i'll clean it up an' send over.

vc: oh, thanks

vc: most of them falsely claimed I was wanted by the FBI
vc: lmao I haven't seen any

vc: I can't tell if you're serious or not ☟︎

vc: so how do these chicks advertise themselves? from TV shows, or adverts?
mircea_popescu: you see that she is on tv, and know what that means, pretty much.
vc: what like any female on TV?
mircea_popescu: well no, but any female in the age range with no obvious reason of being there.
mircea_popescu: as they say in poker, the reason IS obvious, just maybe not to you.
mircea_popescu: though credit where credit's due, the italian tv invented the method.
vc: I'd pay $500 to fuck the journalist at antena 1 that interviewed me tbh
vc: haven't found the video of that interview but she was pretty qt
mircea_popescu: so you're an adult, get some contacts in the trade an' ask around. odds being in your favour.
Framedragger: vc: paid for a vps, lemme know if box 'hivc' becomes a nuisance in terms abuse complaints, willya :)
vc: will do ;)
mircea_popescu: ah, right, prolly should get a node. hey vc what do you recommend for bitcoin node ? vps carry it ?
vc: I'm not sure what you're referring to. Are you asking me how I'm doing btc payments?
mircea_popescu: i am asking you, if i intend to run a btc node, ie, a blockchain's worth of gb etc, what's the solution cock.li offers
vc: oh, how large is the blockchain nowadays?
jurov: 70GB
vc: wew lad
vc: only the 4GB server with 120GB storage would be able to store that, though if running a bitcoind node is your intention then using pure SSD storage may be wasted potential
vc: meaning you may be able to get a better deal elsewhere
jurov: it *requires* SSD
vc: oic
mircea_popescu: it requires ssd ; and about 3gb ram ☟︎
vc: oh, well then the 4GB server should do it, at least until the blockchain outgrows that :@)
vc: though I think I should be able to offer expansions to disk space, not sure about that yet
mircea_popescu: how much would that be ?
vc: $40 a month
vc: also as of this moment 4 units of space are not currently available on cock box, sadly :(
vc: too much money xxx
mircea_popescu: tell you what : i'll buy that, and pay it in advance for a year, provided you install and manage a trb node there.
vc: pffft
mircea_popescu: (it mostly builds without problems via V) ☟︎
vc: I do not know what a trb node is
mircea_popescu: but the logs are your friends :)
Framedragger: [inb4 ideology *popcorn*]
mircea_popescu: basically some usg assholes tried to hijack the bitcoin. trb aka the real bitcoin is the... well, the real bitcoin.
vc: oh I see, I found thebitcoin.foundation
mircea_popescu: word.
vc: how much bandwidth would something like this use monthly?
mircea_popescu: not terribly much ; i've never measured to average > 1mbps.
pete_dushenski: 1-2gb per month ?
mircea_popescu: but at any rate this conversation definitely lays bare just how badly we've missed the boat by not increasing blocksize when usgavin wanted to.
mircea_popescu: woe to us.
vc: ok yeah cool, so are you asking me to run something independently while you do X on your server? or are you asking me to configure your server myself, setting up the daemon? or are you instead asking me to do nothing except give you your server
mircea_popescu: the middle one it seems.

Framedragger: """It has always been much more ambitious, proposing an entire form of literature where links do not break as versions change; where documents may be closely compared side by side and closely annotated; where it is possible to see the origins of every quotation; and in which there is a valid copyright system-- a literary, legal and business arrangement-- for frictionless, non-negotiated quotation at any time and in any amount.
Framedragger: The Web trivialized this original Xanadu model, vastly but incorrectly simplifying these problems to a world of fragile ever-breaking one-way links, with no recognition of change or copyright, and no support for multiple versions or principled re-use.

mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i wasn't aware the notion of children = unwanted pests is at all controversial. pretty much the only mammals that engage in it do so when they have absolutely no other option, much like poor working classes hitting the gin.
pete_dushenski: my little bruiser is... still a bruiser. no convergence to the mean just yet.
mircea_popescu: even someone as clueless as a medieval noble needed the entire arbitrary structure of male inheritance to be marginally bothered with it,
mircea_popescu: and even then they barely bothered ; and generally the children lived as slaves / war captives. (see the duke of perigord's adventures for a fine example of this)
pete_dushenski: 'children are better seen, not heard' (tm)
mircea_popescu: heck, it's amply documented how britain throughout its rise and preeminence treaded middle class children as exactly war captives, even going so far as to switch them around so natural affection won't entice the female to get in the way of mistreatment.

mircea_popescu: why is she not actually here anyway ?
asciilifeform: can't be arsed
mircea_popescu: and to delve into mircea_popescu> there's no way for mass market restaurant to compete with dedicated cook of your own training << tis not a matter of it being you know, the evil capitalist being mean and bad for the evulz. it's that they fucking can't. period. girl can, and will, and does make mayo out of eggs and olive oil. how the fuck is 3 man restaurant to do this ? they can't do this. they have to buy it.
mircea_popescu: how am i to not know the difference, immediately, between one or the other ? it simply can not be.
mircea_popescu: it's the denied middle, like chips in runs of 50`000. you can have 1000. you can have 1mn. you can't have a fucking 50k.
asciilifeform: just like you cannot pay for, e.g., adacoin.
asciilifeform: it dun happen for fee
mircea_popescu: which goes right back to the whole marriage thing. all the derps excited about how "woman loves to be raped" fail to comprehend that NOT BY YOU OMFG. yes, by that guy, to whom anything is allowed, he can piss on her shirt buttons and she'll save them in her secret girly jool box. what's that do for average joe.
asciilifeform: for avgjoe -- wagner, cyanide ??
mircea_popescu: how about just settling the fuck down.
asciilifeform: on what? stake?
mircea_popescu: this is the trouble with "modern democracy"-es throughout history, they overinnervate the average joe. it's like amphetamine on a historical scale.
mircea_popescu: have some tea and go to bed what!
asciilifeform: this 'settle down' isn't actually a menu item no moar
mircea_popescu: that's unfortunate.
asciilifeform: yeah but when you goto bed, you - usually - wake up again.
asciilifeform: thenwhat!
mircea_popescu: i just meant settle down in the general sense ; they're kids that ate too much sugary goop.
asciilifeform: who exactly ?
mircea_popescu: these dudes/dudettes figuring "they should change the world" or w/e the fuck they're figuring, i have no idea. average joe on a mission of ruining his own life because too much tv.
asciilifeform: fact is, everyone knows 1) meaningful life exists 2) but entirely out of reach for them, like alpha centauri
mircea_popescu: 3) mostly because they're too fucking agitated.
mircea_popescu: a supercharged tachyon can traverse the whole galaxy and not find any matter to interact with.
mircea_popescu: heck, if supercharged enough IT CAN EVEN GO TO 1880 and still nada.
asciilifeform: young folks - who still have life in'em and not ready for wagner - are agitated, this is normal..
mircea_popescu: i don't think it is normal ; i think it was common, in america, in the 20th century. but not really otherwise.
asciilifeform: and holyshitt is that a lift with a fucking ORGAN in it?!
asciilifeform: wtf.
pete_dushenski: money can't buy adacoin, but it can buy liftorgan
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: well yeah, 1880 street urchin or ru peasant sedated by malnutrition is 'calm'
asciilifeform: they dunmakethesenomoar
asciilifeform: pete_dushenski: sure as hell
asciilifeform: i bet edison's original electric chair is in some restaurant here somewhere
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform there's this epic exchange : http://trilema.com/2014/people-us-dollars-are-not-worth-a-fifth-of-a-bitcent-stop-selling/#footnote_1_55053
mircea_popescu: who's scamming who, and for what ?
asciilifeform: and visitors can sizzle in it for a minute for a dollar
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: epic aha
mircea_popescu: seems the old guy's pushing the young guy to be agitated there. for profit.
asciilifeform: the winnerz fuck the luserz, how else
mircea_popescu: yeah but i meant the germane part.
asciilifeform: yeah but no, nature pre-agitated him, koschei is only steering him
asciilifeform: like horse.
mircea_popescu: see, i can appreciate this "1880 street urchin or ru peasant sedated by malnutrition is 'calm'", except the first part is strictly incorrect ; and yet... there's a counter recorded also.
mircea_popescu: maybe.
mircea_popescu: but by now i suspect they're mostly artificially agitated.
asciilifeform: asciilifeform is agitated since ~birth. who did this ?
asciilifeform: just happenz
asciilifeform: folx arr agitated for a few decades and then wagner. such is life
