BingoBoingo: At a time it had users, could do recon by scoping out a persons facebook page. Now... none of the kids have them anymore.

ben_vulpes: but the male-gendered bowel movements don't have a scrap of dole to redistribute.
mircea_popescu: this strengthens my point.
ben_vulpes: semi-relatedly, i found the wine insulator.
ben_vulpes: i believe that one of the cleaning girls put it in the dishwasher.
ben_vulpes: heh and further lolz of the wine insulator, i once asked one of the staff to bring a bottle up in it
mircea_popescu: crazy american, has more cleannign girls than mating girls on the premises. as a result... wine suffers.
ben_vulpes: he arrived on the deck with the bottle /in/ the insulator, surrounded by ice and /in water/
ben_vulpes: this a bottle that'd been sitting in the fridge all week.
mircea_popescu: was it also red ?
ben_vulpes: "dude, it's not a cooler. the wine was already cold. it's an /insulator/."
ben_vulpes: no although i did have to lay about with the cane one time when someone brought me a bottle of refrigerated red.
mircea_popescu: girlies here keep asking me if i want ice in it.
ben_vulpes: no es un pais de pobre rose
mircea_popescu: ALL THEY HAVE is fucking reds.
ben_vulpes shrugs
mircea_popescu: anyway, i usually ask them in turn how long they've been working, they say something with months in it, i ask them how they like it, they say not very much...
ben_vulpes: i briefly looked into buying a giant waterproof sack and sticking it into a TEU for int'l wine shipping.
mircea_popescu: why be good at somethiung when you could just be argentine.

ben_vulpes: "doesn't go underwater" probly
mircea_popescu: the reason is obvious, they start at more millions than he has. not more millions than he;d have had the cardano shipped on schedule and we all make it rich off the exploding share price, but neways.
ben_vulpes: fuck dude go park it off a shipping lane and get weekly oil deliveries if you really burn that much
ben_vulpes: yeah well have to build a cpu first or something
ben_vulpes not privy to the uncensored reports

ben_vulpes: anyways, unrelatedly, the new box stands on its own two feet. now to close the colo deal, rack and migrate.

asciilifeform: i am interested in the sea as ~strictly~ a place where the dollar buys moar social-isolation bang than elsewhere, and in no other way.
PeterL: For less than a boat you could get an isolated cabin here in MI and be as isolated as you want
PeterL: seems like empty land would be cheaper than boat in the long run
PeterL: http://www.upmls.com/land.php?view=1088652&board= "The north east corner of the property touches the Ottawa National Forest. The almost one million acres of this Forest extends from the south shore of Lake Superior to the Wisconsin border."
PeterL: $5k
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform iirc the nutso scientology guy did for a decade or so.
mircea_popescu: note that i'm the one explaining "life on the sea" is idiotic, you don't get to hijack that argument. fact remains that IF you're willing to bite the live-on-sea bullet, tanker by far best deal.
mircea_popescu: and WILL STAY best deal, for your lifetime, given that no amateur shithead/copywriter is going to come up with a way to MAKE NEW ships that'll come out cheaper than the tail end of the industrial process.
mircea_popescu: just like no squirrel is ever going to make a cpu that'll be cheaper than simply taking a box of pentiums out of radioshack in a post-apocalyptic world.
BingoBoingo: ty jurov
asciilifeform: they break on waves.
asciilifeform: QED.
asciilifeform: not good deal.
asciilifeform: good deal to send some ~other~ poor fuck on, to carry cargo.
asciilifeform: and cheap - yes, until the diesel cannot be had in the requisite qty.
asciilifeform: nor the parts.
asciilifeform: (quite a few tanker co. have already begun 'downsizing' by removing individual pistons, even..)
mircea_popescu: you crazy ?
mircea_popescu: no tanker broke on anything in 30+ years.
mircea_popescu: they don't break if driven on land ffs.

mircea_popescu: wtf is esa anyway ?
asciilifeform: euro space
asciilifeform: y'know, the folks with their own crappy gps etc.
mircea_popescu: if you imagine you'll have orlov build you a ship out of a well chosen half walnut that'll perform better in "freakish weather" than a tanker you really should move on to apologetics, what can i say!
asciilifeform: hey i never asserted that the problem was ~solvable~...
asciilifeform: much less by orlol.
asciilifeform: only that it were interesting.
mircea_popescu: well, by far the cheapest masquerade of a solution is spending the 45mn or so to buy a junky old tanker and be happy.
asciilifeform: and small vessels, for all of their faults, are less breakable than large ones.
asciilifeform: incidentally tanker is a poor solution for another reason - it is, like that 'business jet', a 'have slaves machine'
asciilifeform: and certainly not a 'one bloke operates and repairs with his own two hands for 20 years' machine.
asciilifeform: what's it cost to dry-dock a tanker ?
asciilifeform: and in how many spots on planet3 can you do it
mircea_popescu: not really. most tankers run on tiny crews of a dozenand a half to two dozen
mircea_popescu: much less crew than any submarine.
mircea_popescu: also, it's a consumer item. you never drydock it. buy another.
asciilifeform: iirc the crew is largely ceremonial, the thing is driven by computer
mircea_popescu: there's thousands extra.
asciilifeform: buy another! lel
mircea_popescu: doh ?
mircea_popescu: bitch, things cost money. what is this "im of the internet and free plox" ?
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu reminds me of the british ww1 admiral
asciilifeform: who, asked 'how we shall deal with uboats' answered, 'let's boil the atlantic'
mircea_popescu: the whole fucking point of "buy tanker, live on sea" is that you are exploting an early-come apocalypse.
mircea_popescu: the industrial world died. once this means everyone can loot walmart, everyone will
mircea_popescu: currently, it just means "anyone can loot tankers"
mircea_popescu: go, loot.
asciilifeform: walmart and slow targets visible from 50km
asciilifeform: which includes tanker.
asciilifeform: i can understand folks who buy the subs (as described by mircea_popescu re costa rica narcos) but tanker is lunacy.
mircea_popescu: by the time you get to loot, you get to loot like fungi do (visible but nobody to take advantage)
PeterL: Somali pirates spend much less than 45 mn to get their tankers
mircea_popescu: you're not a preditor and do not wish to become one.
mircea_popescu: so therefore, go, photosynthesize.
mircea_popescu: PeterL as above. he's a lilly ass murican, not a somali.
mircea_popescu: he "has better things to do". "do those better things buy you a tanker ?" "don't ask so many questions!"
asciilifeform: PeterL: 'get' until first contact with ru navy.
asciilifeform: by that token, can go to any parking lot and 'get' jaguar, until first police car.
mircea_popescu: so what is this, you'll be sinking the ru navy as part of this project ?
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform most of the better whores can, and do, and that's why i love them.
asciilifeform: did mr reptilia 'get' that aston-martin in the hotel parking lot ?
mircea_popescu: no idea, which is why i never fcared for him.

mircea_popescu: how am i going to answer a ghost of a question!
asciilifeform: elaborate why not 'bock explained'
mircea_popescu: for humans, because it doesn't serve any purpose to credit idiots; with anything. for computers, because the whole point of the idiot being named is to make it impossible for his life to continue outside of his association with his fucking a pig.

mircea_popescu: so then you'll have a sub inside the sub ?
asciilifeform: launch from shore.
PeterL: and pick up on other shore
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: slack? or slock ?
mircea_popescu: wait these are distinct ?
asciilifeform: (slack is a chat thing?)
mircea_popescu: i thought the grimy looking tual fellow had... a chat thing ?
asciilifeform: slock is this orc subcontractor that only existed in light of ethertardium
mircea_popescu: how the fuck is everyone in vcland making "chat things" after we started a chat thing is anyone's guess.
asciilifeform: slack is an american vc corp thing
mircea_popescu: what, unlike "slock" ?
asciilifeform: iirc slock was euro
mircea_popescu: euro vc ?
mircea_popescu: what, like... danish venture capital ?
asciilifeform: euro buncha-dudes-in-a-cellar
mircea_popescu still chuckles at the "conference" where the various "captains of industree" were discussing who sleeps on whose floor, because one of them was subletting or bumming out or w/e in some flat in london
BingoBoingo: slack seems to just be chat
mircea_popescu: by which "london" we mean ... god help it.

asciilifeform: shinohai: it lives in the land of 'aol messenger', microshit outlook, etc.
asciilifeform: is a pretty typical work of heathendom.
mircea_popescu: so why not just use irc ? i suppose these charge at some point no ?
asciilifeform: because then someone has to sweat, setting up logz, search, bots, etc.
trinque: irc doesn't have emojis and gifs.. would be the "reason"
asciilifeform: why not, thinks luser, put money in the clown head, and eat.
asciilifeform: and of course it charges.
mircea_popescu: so why the fuck would a software house hire eh nevermind.
asciilifeform: and comes with pnoje APP!!1111 etc.
mircea_popescu: i'm not advanced enough for modernity.
asciilifeform: it is really 'we want tmsr-like machine but all get got is a pile of usd, let's have whatever much cardboard approximation it buys'
asciilifeform: *we got
mircea_popescu: seems such a trivially tiny project tho
asciilifeform: eh, supporting the various smart-pnoje clients alone probably employs a whole slave galley
mircea_popescu: almost like an entry bar. "if you can't get your team irc room together you're all fired"
asciilifeform: iirc ben_vulpes eats off this, just for some niche industry somewhere
mircea_popescu: i suppose this leads us to the fundamental tmsr reform. our view is exclusive, "either it works with this or is banned" ; their view is inclusive, "either it works with this or we change the this"
mircea_popescu: important point i guess.
asciilifeform: the proprietary clients do such things as guaranteed retro-ordering of messages, very frustrating to folks raised on irc, but the folks who have it - expect it.
asciilifeform: and yes.
mircea_popescu: who the fuck in management would say anything other than "so buy a proper phone" to employee who was like "i can't call the company"
mircea_popescu: what's retro-ordering ?
asciilifeform: when boss keys in a message, but he is in a lift, so it doesn't post until he comes out, but he wants it pinned to time T
asciilifeform: when he was in the lift.
asciilifeform: ask ~them~, not me, why this is necessary.
mircea_popescu: ahahaha what!
mircea_popescu: but how the fuck does this work, i can just set my system time and send messages back to 2014 ?
asciilifeform: sort of like having a log, except in everybody's client at once, and with heavy does of 'promise' (vs protocol)
asciilifeform: *dose
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: and quite possibly. if anyone cared to reverse the client, all kinds of marvels may yet become possible.
mircea_popescu: this is ridiculous.
asciilifeform: i did say! typical work of heathendom.
asciilifeform: didn't i.
mircea_popescu: you did say.
mircea_popescu: quite typical, too, in the elevator example. "i want things to be made to be what i thought they were going to be at no expense to me!"

asciilifeform: which is perhaps the ultimate in 'moral hazard' and a crock of shit
thestringpuller: losing something directly tied to coins.
thestringpuller: anything related to loss of coins.

thestringpuller: asciilifeform: that assumes a smart scammer.
asciilifeform: go and try to insure a pile of usd you keep in your mattress, see what, e.g., lloyds, answers.
thestringpuller: That was probably the case for people scamming usagi, which is what it boiled down to. Usagi issued insurance against people who were exposed to pirate (insured their debts), then collected it into risk trenches (A, B and C) of descending risk. he did 0 underwriting, and was overconfident. So all the people who told him they weren't exposed to pirate were.

asciilifeform: to go up stack: the 'delete my history of disgraceful failure OR ELSE!1111' thing is an idiocy that does not come from empty space, but from monkeys watching lizard organs do ~same thing routinely
asciilifeform: straight imitation.
asciilifeform: 'ME TOO!!!1111'
mircea_popescu: quite possibly.
mircea_popescu: also a nice bastadization of "you can be anything" with "if you want something the whole universe coelhospires for it to happen"
mircea_popescu: but it's certainly quite deep. the vermin doesn't merely aim to a comfortable existence, but more importantly to a memory-less situation.
mircea_popescu: hence the whole "anonymous" bullshit.
asciilifeform: a memory-less situation is quite incompatible with 'comfortable existence' for these folx.

mircea_popescu: how do you figure?
mircea_popescu: ah ah yeah.
mircea_popescu: hence all the "drugs will make things better". the ONE thing all psychoactives have in common is a destruction of identity through fucking up memory.
