mircea_popescu: epic example of the whole "oh, etherape you say ? i vaguely recall some things which therefore clearly don't matter and also it proves stupidity pays!"
mircea_popescu: tough job, being pinoy.
ben_vulpes: utterly fucking hilarious to me that buterin hosed his own thing to fix poorly implemented scripts by others
ben_vulpes: but the notion of a "fits in head" ethereum contract boggles the mind, so.
mircea_popescu: "his".
mircea_popescu: buterin's a "digital newspaper" gofer.
ben_vulpes: i know i met the guy one time
mircea_popescu: he lacks the capacity of ownership much like goat lacks the capacity to sing.
ben_vulpes: yes yes
ben_vulpes: "buterin" and "his" are readily stand ins for "lizards" and "theirs"
mircea_popescu: he just did what was told. inexplicably things happened.
mircea_popescu: yes but the divorce explains the phenomenon.
ben_vulpes: pardon?
mircea_popescu: lizards imagine themselves better than bitcoin. the tim swanson error.
mircea_popescu: gofers just wanna do what told.
mircea_popescu: the intermingling of these results in a billion dollars in cash misplaced in middle east and a hundred million misplaced online.
ben_vulpes: eh, what "buterin".
ben_vulpes: figurehead is stand in.

mircea_popescu: or if you prefer, take vietnam war, amply studied (in english, i mean) application of the stupidity. grunts that just wanna get out alive and brass that has "political considerations" results in a resounding military defeat.
mircea_popescu: take baltimore lulz last year, for something palpably close. same exact mechanism.
ben_vulpes: dude the past week has raised my shits given about ethereum from zero to like a half
ben_vulpes: usg does cryptocurrency, gets hosed, news at whenever
mircea_popescu: well the problem of http://i.imgur.com/xivy4To.png has ~nothing to do with ethereum per se.
ben_vulpes: ahaha
mircea_popescu: but irl it happens because on that bike, there isn't ONE person riding. there's two : a bodybuilder with no head pedalling and the brainbox+spinal column of a cubical drone with no flesh.
mircea_popescu: working together, they manage the spoke-in-wheel trick all the time.
ben_vulpes: WELL
ben_vulpes: this machine is not log for the living.
ben_vulpes: long, even.
ben_vulpes: anyways this malaysian thing is hilarious and interesting on several other axes as well: 1) the malaysian government is nowhere mentioned in the pr-wank 2) if one accepts the usg narrative, gs is an obvious stooge of *someone* in the play due to not doing dd adequate to determine that bond monies were going to an organization with inadequate controls to keep the money from draining immediately into the
ben_vulpes: pockets of everyone on staff 3) gosh this could be over 2000 words
mircea_popescu: on the other hand, the "crypto-contract", fit in head or not, is just an avatar of lazy thinking, much like any amulet. ignorant nonsense and no more.
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes qntra piece ?
ben_vulpes: i) "sovereign wealth fund" issues bonds since the usg performed some kind of backflip and the phrase meant something other than "giant pile of cash sucked out of the earth"
ben_vulpes: mircea_popescu: there's no piece yet even
mircea_popescu: anyway, they prolly bought swag, crack and bitcoin for the whole sum already. as per the ancient "borrow all you can, trade the shiatola for proper currency, disappear."
ben_vulpes: but the thought of running the org2blog export process for 120 seconds every time i want to tweak something
mircea_popescu: fiat is pretty much a scam token by now anyway.
ben_vulpes: kills my will to write
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes try mp-wp for srs.
ben_vulpes: see: gentoo quest
ben_vulpes: all i have in life is my dependency graph
ben_vulpes: mircea_popescu: so does that thing work?
mircea_popescu: yes.
ben_vulpes: last i recall you said something to shinohai about scripts or documentation?
mircea_popescu: it's being rewritten etc, but as it is it does work.
ben_vulpes: well not yours, but the thing shared around lo these weeks ago
mircea_popescu: that's be mine neh ?
mircea_popescu: anyway, phf stood it up in ten minutes, which i'd expect to be typical, with the occasional alfexception. ☟︎
ben_vulpes: choice lulz
ben_vulpes: choice choice lulz
ben_vulpes: anyways i have several mega housekeeping chores in between here and trying mp-wp for myself.
ben_vulpes: (also did anyone notice that the malaysian project is being performed under the civil forfeiture statutes?!)
mircea_popescu: not like it's going anywhere. however, the important point is that absence of tools actually limits your life in a very drastic manner.
ben_vulpes: and shitty tools moreso!
mircea_popescu: yeah.
ben_vulpes: dude i'm repouring a foundation over here.
mircea_popescu: but the thing is - if you had it, you couild write your piecve, add value to your life.history and therefore future. if you don't have it - you can't.
ben_vulpes: what can't, draft is right here on me hdd.
mircea_popescu: after 3 years of not having it, what you saved was still the one time cost of having it ; but what you lost is the incremental cost of all the things you didn't get to have
mircea_popescu: in this sense tool investment exposes one to a sort of reverse-interest.
mircea_popescu: but as a heuristic, "things which will have to be done anyway are best done right now."
ben_vulpes: the prefuckingcise reason i am not making the investment in mp-wp at this moment is because i am paying a debt on the virtualization tool choise. ☟︎
ben_vulpes: choice*
mircea_popescu: heh
mircea_popescu: funnay how that works
mircea_popescu: as you say, choice, choice lulz :D
ben_vulpes: the interest doesn't sting quite as badly when you've a plan and wait for the right moment.
mircea_popescu: tru
ben_vulpes: plan being a kind of principal here.
mircea_popescu: cash is safer than plans, though, in that context (which is a very sensible context i might add).
ben_vulpes: sure!
ben_vulpes: and with an unprovisioned server slowly grinding towards utility i am /already ridiculously safer/ than running virtualized.
mircea_popescu: i never quite understood the appeal of "virtualiation".
mircea_popescu: very strange to me that the same people who fiercely resist employee not showing up for office hours cheerily embrace ... fucking office furniture not showing up.
ben_vulpes: i had no idea what i'd bought at the time.
mircea_popescu: what puritan idiocy is this whereby things may be trusted with human attributes because... what, they reliably won't engage in sins of the flesh ?
mircea_popescu: "if i let bill work remotely he might who knows, fuck his wife! whereas this amd is safe, it'll just sit there."
mircea_popescu: nuts, these people.
ben_vulpes: i just gotta piss on every fence in case one of 'ems electrified
mircea_popescu: (the interested reader is invited to follow my steps through lowell and teh greater merrimack river valley, to dig through the history of 1800s "industrial" culture, ie, large nunneries filled with girlies presented a whole new sort of religion.
mircea_popescu: did you for instance know that they mostly died of tuberculosis, which they mostly acquired through the "kiss of death", which was the procedure whereby they'd load the thread in the machine needle kissing it ? "went faster", not to mention female masochism.)
mircea_popescu: sadly at the time i didn't have a blog, nor truth be told any interest in "the world" generally speaking. so the notes will forever sit.
mircea_popescu: and in other news : oj simpson may or may not have killed his nonconsensually slutty wife and some schmuck named ronald. that schmuck's family did in fact win a civil award of 33.5 mn. of the sum owed, they collected a few hundred k's, which consist entirely of... the royalties from a ghostwritten book. "if i did it: confessions of the killer".
mircea_popescu: put another way : a) the mecca of "topical fiction" bullshit yields less money than it costs to buy a house, don't bother ; us tort law and practice is the lulz of all time.

asciilifeform: i can tell that mircea_popescu never answered mailz with one finger, of one hand, hanging from a rail, from a moving train, over 8kbaud modem...

ben_vulpes: ie9 is alive and well among the shoe-purchasing, web-surfing population

pete_dushenski: "I was actually happy to see the Hit King get defensive. I kind of felt I was accepted. I heard that about five years ago Pete Rose did an interview, and he said that he wished that I could break that record. Obviously, this time around it was a different vibe. In the 16 years that I have been here, what I’ve noticed is that in America, when people feel like a person is below them, not just in numbers b
pete_dushenski: ut in general, they will kind of talk you up. But then when you get up to the same level or maybe even higher, they get in attack mode; they are maybe not as supportive. I kind of felt that this time."

phf: i had that happen to me too by the way, it's my day to day 2011 macbook pro, and even the chassis got bent. all i had to do is order replacement battery and carefully apply a rubber mallet. good luck doing that on recent apple machine(tm)
pete_dushenski: yea, newer mba requires whole laptop back case to be removed to replace battery. probably macbook pro too but i dun really keep up to date anymore
pete_dushenski: the trend away from user meddling is pretty clear though
pete_dushenski: for obvious reasons too. only terrorists (tm) swap parts, customise equipment.

pete_dushenski: who cares about blogger ?
BingoBoingo: But blogger who aspires to FENDER FLAGS!!!
pete_dushenski: maybe in putin's russia, where stasi are organised, blogger can 'have accidental gas asplosion in apartment', but canada is about as militant as a sack of wet bean sprouts.
pete_dushenski: BingoBoingo: blogger also aspires to harim and castle and and andandnanananndand what of it. dreams are phree for a reason.
BingoBoingo: Canada not militant? Have you seen the crew cuts on Toronto's womyn?
BingoBoingo: And dreams are not phree
pete_dushenski: BingoBoingo: those t.o. gurls just wanna hang wif drake. they're wannabe groupies, which is suppose is a type of militantness all its own.
pete_dushenski: *i suppose
BingoBoingo: pete_dushenski: Sometimes being militant just means putting on a show. It however does not help your case that your new Prime Minister is just a metrosexual mockery of Putin who wants to return CADSOC to its glory days
