framedr_stillghe: mornin'. so my gpg key is in another place, should have access this evening, or somesuch. (it's backed up and everything, but simply very inconvenient to retrieve it right now.)
framedr_stillghe: regarding bot: so, the problem is that on some days, some specific characters are recorded by znc which trip up the bot, which expects utf-8. those chars are not utf-8. not blaming this on irc, this should be handled of course
framedr_stillghe: apparently though it's not enough for bot to silently skim through shitty lines (until it reaches the quotable target) - the whole irc log for that day is not readable.
mircea_popescu: interesting.
framedr_stillghe: what needs to happen is, i need to rewrite the whole friggin' thing, and either ditch znc (while using it as backup log history channel, perhaps), or to understand why znc records some shitty chars.
framedr_stillghe: if i can do the latter then the problem is sorted. except for, you know, still having a viewer without search.

mircea_popescu: win.
Framedragger: i am not sure if i should spend time chasing encoding rabbit holes, or start on rewriting things. the logging part is otherwise reliable, after all. but i guess znc can be kept as a source of redundancy, and another logger *which knows wtf utf-8 is* does the primary logging.

Framedragger: includes html escaping etc.
mircea_popescu: hm ?
Framedragger: mircea_popescu: random line cited which includes some html tags.
mircea_popescu: ah k
Framedragger: now if only bots could signal each other when they should stop citing each other's corresponding log lines :p but actually, since scriba will be slower to cite btcbase, it could check if a111 already cited the line, and if so, cancel retrieval. prolly will do this later.
scriba: Logged on 2013-05-02: [07:10:55] <truff1es> buttsex has been discussed in here dont worry
mircea_popescu: heh. each-reads-his-own was intended as a mechanism to encourage people to select the better package.
mircea_popescu: however, the problem with this theory is that in practice changing the logger is pretty traumatic.
scriba: Logged on 2016-09-14: [21:23:49] <phf> asciilifeform: we started with a single canonical log though, where kako's testimony was implicitly the word of tmsr. there was some anathem/"A Canticle for Leibowitz" jokes about it, the log files were deeded, etc. while working on btcbase i realized that there can be no canonical log without arbitration, i.e. because of netsplits, lost messages, out of order, clock skews you need a single author
scriba: Logged on 2016-09-14: [21:23:49] <phf> log. so at some point we were in "log according to btcbase" situation. with the recent move to multiple bots and more importantly multiple logs, we now have "log according to ..." model, which we can still though attempt to reconcile. once we move to gossip there can't even be a talk of single log. it's always "log according to whoever heard and relayed it" by design.
Framedragger: one side-effect from the above: it may therefore be that as one approaches the gossipd model / state of affairs, cooperation > minmax-style competition

phf: Framedragger: i'm basically using kako's log format as a universal exchange <id>;<unix timestamp>;<nick>;<message>, so there's a python bottle proxy sitting on a machine, that, very defensively, can serve a copy of your page in a kako format. it caches all pages that are not today, and it has like 10 second cache for today's queries, but otherwise i'm not mirroring your pages
asciilifeform: http://wotpaste.cascadianhacker.com/pastes/8oabs/?raw=true << in other noose, idiot has been working, at least partly BY HAND, for more than a DAY, banging on the door of dulap
phf: i'm only querying for what was mentioned in logs ("annotations"), since i didn't want the split to break the xref facility
asciilifeform: pretty strange payloads, too
asciilifeform: e.g., http://ma0okb3t7xm4z9ttu5zt9xfu8leca0do8byzn.burpcollaborator.net contains '<html><body>u2fbaww7z5xmct4xg2wyplzjjogvgnfigz</body></html>'
asciilifeform: and so forth.
phf: very defensively, because it needs to do checks like
phf: if (dt == date(2016, 9, 6) and int(localid) >= 166) \
phf: or dt > date(2016, 9, 6):
phf: tz = utc
phf: else:
phf: tz = timezone('EET')
phf:
Framedragger: phf: nice. (nice caching setup, too). thanks for explaining - i'll want to set up some 'backup redundant history source' soon, i think..
Framedragger: *ahem*
phf: ahem, indeed!
Framedragger: thought that's what you meant by defensively
phf: well, for my own znc it has to do like a bunch of retarded timezone conversions, but at least i sat down and thought them through this time
Framedragger: :)
phf: (my server is america/denver, my log dates are in america/new_york, and kako's format is served in utc)
phf: but since i don't have to expose it to wild net, and rate of checks is low, i can just have a bottle file per task, just doing its own specific massaging
Framedragger: yeah. my contrab now has TZ=UTC LC_ALL=en_US.UTF-8 /usr/bin/znc >/dev/null 2>&1 just to be sure. unfortunately, that only happened later.
Framedragger: sounds good
Framedragger: (things will be moved to proper db with proper unixtime)
Framedragger: crontab*
phf: db is only worthwhile once you start writing analytics on logs. i've been doing the read directly from znc logs using regex approach for almost a year (actually scratch that i was querying kako's logs over web), and only decided to step it up once i realized i want xref
phf: i guess search too, but that's kind of lateral. you can write a bit of python code using xapian to do parsing and indexing for you, and i suspect it's going to be ballpark database speeds. postgresql's builtin search is .. special
Framedragger: how about full text search? though i know that a combo of caching and grep-in-memory-map mode (on an ssd, say) may be viable
Framedragger: ah
phf: xapian will give you full text search
Framedragger: postgres builtin search needs to be massaged iirc, and e.g. if you set up indices you may need to do https://wiki.postgresql.org/wiki/Tuning_Your_PostgreSQL_Server - actually, best to change things anyway, as by default postgres assumes you have very little memory, etc.
phf: kind of tricky to cache search, since it's very one off. most load on server comes from searching (i mean it's miniscule still, but...), but i looked at analytics and search queries are all over the place. you have n hits from mentions, which ~might~ be worthwhile to cache. (like ascii does !#s foo, and then there's a dozen of hits from random ips and browsers)
Framedragger: (i.e. i agree, but there are ways to leverage things. but, takes time to do right)
Framedragger: yeah. a bit tricky
PeterL: I wrote a script to submit links from logs to archive.is
PeterL: I am running it now into the past
Framedragger: ah, nice!
phf: well, i do posgresql for money, the appeal of tmsr work is that i can do whatever the fuck, and though that means sometimes suboptimal results, there's a lot of merit in trying odd solutions

asciilifeform: 'alf-wp' does not, and will not, because it does not have write permissions for the file system.
asciilifeform: period.
asciilifeform: so it cannot alter .htaccess.
asciilifeform: (yes this also means that i do picture uploads, etc. by hand.)
asciilifeform: and here mircea_popescu thought that he wore the hairiest shirt...
Framedragger: asciilifeform: but you can edit .htaccess (or nginx directives for the site) yourself, at least that's what i did in the past iirc.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform it wouldn't need to alter it however. afaik mp-wp doesn't either ; handles redirects itself like a grown-up system ??
mircea_popescu: puts a -d in there, once, when you set it up ; builds its own flalback.

asciilifeform: looks like my ancient wp cannot do this.
Framedragger: well, the webserver needs not to get confused if it is asked to serve /some/hipster/post where neither that file nore /some/hipster/index.* exists; it needs to pass uri as parameter to index.php
mircea_popescu: i can't recall now if it was from the mp or the wp part of the family, but i think mostly the latter really.
mircea_popescu: incidentally, if anyone wants to check how wordpress does latex formatting and roll a mp-wp plugin / v update for it that'd be grand. in typical faux open source style, they're remarkably unhelpful with it (see https://en.support.wordpress.com/latex/ )
asciilifeform: latex comments are a dodgy thing imho. it's turing complete...
asciilifeform: and a gigantic coprolith of multi-meg ??????.
mircea_popescu: yeah there is that. and that.
Framedragger: i recall using mathjax for math equations
mircea_popescu: eugh!
Framedragger: lots of javascript but renders well. but lots of javascript
Framedragger: i mean, mathjax in wp
Framedragger: which renders latex
mircea_popescu: Framedragger look at the example given ; it's an image.
Framedragger: you cant copy paste an image
Framedragger: sucks balls
Framedragger: maybe just my preference
asciilifeform: 'The MathJax javascript can be delivered from your own server, or you can utilise the [MathJax Content Distribution Network (CDN)] (http://www.mathjax.org/docs/latest/start.html#mathjax-cdn), which is the preferred mechanism as it offers increased speed and stability over hosting the Javascript and configuring the library yourself. Use of the CDN is governed by these Terms of Service.'
asciilifeform: barfalicious.

asciilifeform: with the latter, you're serving up crapola from strangers.
Framedragger: i know you dont care about mobile users because they suck mircea_popescu , but what's nice with rendered fonts is that they scale nicely; among other things
mircea_popescu: how cool it is that we ate all the bugs and errors from "supporting utf", because look - there's no fucking glyph-based way to latex, in 2016.
Framedragger: hence the clause "but lots of javascript"
mircea_popescu: but hey, at least the-shithead-bureaucrat-who-inherited-apple gets to have his day in the sun about whether the glyph for "gun" should be "water pistol"

asciilifeform: here on my planet, words have meaningz!111
pete_dushenski: and what does 'enduring' mean then ? 10 seconds for einsteinium ? 10 millenia for pyramid ?
asciilifeform: can mean various things, of which 'mud hut' is not any.
asciilifeform: as far as houses go.
asciilifeform: cardboard house is built to last ~exactly as long as the chump's mortgage.
pete_dushenski: not sure about that. even for houses 'enduring' should be satisfied by multi-generational.
asciilifeform: these - quite certainly are not.
shinohai: "We've lived in the same trailer for 50 years!"
pete_dushenski: lol even if that requires banging out the next gen at 20
asciilifeform: pete_dushenski: even then! ever ~see~ an american house ?
asciilifeform: the suburban cardboard-and-aluminum box kind
pete_dushenski: asciilifeform: ticky tacky houses in 1960s were also designed to last as long as mortgage, yet many still stand. just need updated plumbing, electrical, bathrooms... bones are fine

asciilifeform: i.e. replace, at tremendous expense, the parts.
asciilifeform: 'renovations' is a chumpatron second only to the real estate scam, in usa
pete_dushenski: you think this is somehow unique to residential construction because that's what you're familiar with. it isn't. commercial, industrial, etc are all the same. news flash : building require maintenance.
asciilifeform: pay 400% markup for the aluminum plates etc.
asciilifeform: there's 'requires maintenance' and then there's 'the walls come off after 10y.'
asciilifeform: i was recently in a house built in 1620s. still has motherfucking original brick walls.
asciilifeform: all that changed since it was built is a couplea paint jobs.
mircea_popescu: actually, industrial buildings moved to tents in the 60s/70s, with the great move to china.
mircea_popescu: you still see the actual industrial buildings, eg here. brick with windows emplaced etc.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: it is more or less on par with labour cost in re 'why china'.
mircea_popescu: "impractical" and "too expensive" ; they use metallic structure now. EXACTLY as permanent as circus tent.
pete_dushenski: maybe pyramids were low maintenance, but in this climate ~everything~ wears. the expansion and contraction caused by 75C seasonal variation, combined with the short construction season, means that bricks CANNOT BE STRUCTURAL MATERIALS. vapour barrier and insulation is sine qua non
mircea_popescu: which, incidentally, was the mode of commerce pre-industry as well as post.
mircea_popescu: the "factory prison" system appears strictly artefact of 18th century.
mircea_popescu: otherwise, market ~= circus.
pete_dushenski: this much is true.
mircea_popescu: anyway. funny how the adventure of "employment" played out, as a concept.
mircea_popescu: nobody thought in terms of "being employed" cca 1650 ; nor much today.
asciilifeform: eh serfdom was here in 1600 and will be here in 2600.
mircea_popescu: that adventure - very much linked to the permanent-factory building.
mircea_popescu: (for the innocent : a factory is, originally, where the factors go. and a factor is someone who is empowered to handle money in relation to, eg, indian fur gatherers/traders)
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform serfdom is not employment.
mircea_popescu: it is ontology not phenomenology. the serf is no more than his shackles.
asciilifeform: serfdom is the simple, low-tech employment - minus the (expensive in overall terms) hiring and firing
mircea_popescu: kinda why "strike" = "treason" in classical russian.
mircea_popescu: this is not so.
mircea_popescu: serfdom is first and foremost a sexual relationship.
pete_dushenski: parental ok... but seksual ?
mircea_popescu: (there is no other basis for ontology in human affairs - if something breaks from phenomenology into being, they will be doing it on sexual basis)
mircea_popescu: pete_dushenski parental is one kind of sexual.
pete_dushenski: sure, but it's more specific.
mircea_popescu: how ?
mircea_popescu: "relationship predicated on functioning of sexual organs".
pete_dushenski: because 'sexual' needn't include parenting ?
pete_dushenski is reaching
mircea_popescu: maybe not your peculiar definition of parenting.
mircea_popescu: thermodynamics also needn't include beer yeasts ?
mircea_popescu: depends. if you think yeast is a metaphysical process then it indeed needn't.
pete_dushenski: ok, reflecting on a rather delicious romp last night, i can see the sexual == parenting angle.
pete_dushenski: i guess i'm just unaccustomed to thinking of everything in sexual terms.
mircea_popescu: well, not everything, but ontology for humans is sex-based.
pete_dushenski: 'to bang or not to bang, that is the question'
mircea_popescu: speaking of which, "He explains that characterizing this as “fantasy” is not meant to be purely critical, that “fantasizing” about the moment of the big bang is what theorists do in the absence of compelling evidence, and that he just has other fantasies he thinks worthwhile."

mircea_popescu: ahahahaha what.
asciilifeform: the (promised) thing in libreboot was 'just same as coreboot but without any magic strings from chip vendors'
mircea_popescu: aha

Framedragger: mircea_popescu: kicked in 3 2 1
asciilifeform: lel how'd you expect that to go.
mircea_popescu: that worked pretty well.
Framedragger: omg i was too late to press return
Framedragger: he got kicked before
Framedragger: wow
Framedragger: "***leah steals nothing" lol
mircea_popescu: the problem with these idiots (niggers, ie technically-null wanna-be "political" bidnissmen) is that they're so fucking inept politically.
Framedragger: mircea_popescu: do you have a log of that convo? it would be an entertaining read. or maybe a short non-time-consuming blog post? ;)
asciilifeform: ^ mine was a litttle longer.
mircea_popescu: anyway, whoever feels like playing with the nigger, feel free to link http://zammit.org/libreboot-screwup.html to it

Framedragger: [22:03:09] <leah> I still run this project
Framedragger: [22:03:13] <leah> and your patches are still welcome
Framedragger: [22:03:23] <leah> libreboot is currently expanding
Framedragger: [22:03:32] <leah> the shock at the moment from the last few days is only temporary
mircea_popescu: ah that discussion.k.
mircea_popescu: ahahahah yeah right. i'm sure it will.
Framedragger: [22:04:02] <leah> I was considering leaving GNU anyway
mircea_popescu: who the fuck wants to give some random idiot their time, so the random idiot can then turn around and sell it for politics ?!
asciilifeform: eh that's what happens when you have an fsf, which insists on being a usgtronic 'charity', instead of a 313333337 t3rr0r111st org. the former get to live with leahs and alices, the latter - expel with flamethrower.
mircea_popescu: this is a point.
asciilifeform changes petrol tank on flamethrower
mircea_popescu: funny how leah is rapidly becoming the ~equivalent for these idiots of candi-is-a-stripper jen-is-a-sorority-slut etc
mircea_popescu: leah-the-nigger-scum
asciilifeform: point was that if 1) you cannot expel-with-framethrower 2) THEY know that you cannot expel-with-flamethrower -- they will come.
asciilifeform: and subj is not limited to open sores, tor hacktiwhateverrism, etc.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform http://blog.portswigger.net/2015/04/introducing-burp-collaborator.html << looks like it's actually another of those "security suites"

mircea_popescu: note they actually trace ips (scroll down)
mircea_popescu: phf Framedragger anyone else with suspect load - may be worth your time to go through logs for those strings, may illuminate vulnerabilities.
asciilifeform: in case it wasn't clear, they were dumping'em in phuctor's hopper
asciilifeform: raw
asciilifeform: hoping that.... ?????
Framedragger: interesting
asciilifeform: ( this, in case it wasn't obvious, doesn't do anything interesting )
mircea_popescu: hey, most of the web runs on shit.
mircea_popescu: i dun think you appreciate how unthinkable this "we have a single-purpose, fully understood stack running straqight atop lamp" thing is, on account of it being common here.
mircea_popescu: but in the world at large you might as well have magical powers.
asciilifeform: i have monumentally nfi
asciilifeform: normally the scanbots are a snore because they go straight to looking for the (absent) wordpress
asciilifeform: the ones which don't, ring the bell, and i look
mircea_popescu: aha.
asciilifeform: it isn't even entirely clear what anyone might hope to accomplish, beyond the merely annoying, by screwing with phuctor
asciilifeform: there are 0 secrets there
mircea_popescu: how is a third party to interact with a "i have 0 secrets" claim ?
asciilifeform: ok, let's rephrase, the map to finding captain kidd's buried gigatonne of gold may or may not be concealed in phuctor src.
asciilifeform: but there is no external reason to suppose that it is.
mircea_popescu: http://log.mkj.lt/trilema/20160920/#314 << that for sure, everything !#s'd should be cached.
scriba: Logged on 2016-09-20: [16:37:38] <phf> kind of tricky to cache search, since it's very one off. most load on server comes from searching (i mean it's miniscule still, but...), but i looked at analytics and search queries are all over the place. you have n hits from mentions, which ~might~ be worthwhile to cache. (like ascii does !#s foo, and then there's a dozen of hits from random ips and
