mircea_popescu: in other news, this priviledge issue is starting to get on my nerves. so some schmucks decided to "fix" random bit of english sometime in the 80s. because nothing soothes the pencildick socialist soul more than changing things for others.
asciilifeform: waiwat bit
mircea_popescu: meanwhile all the "online dictionaries", shitholes as they are, fail to list the historically correct spelling, and so a generation of random idiots go around pretending it's misspelled now.

asciilifeform: (there are others, e.g., asciidoc, etc., i have nfi who uses what, if any, of this, here)
PeterL: perhaps "privilege" is more closely related to "legitamate" than ledge, so no d before the g?
mircea_popescu: legitimate ?
mircea_popescu: at issue is the ending in ge.
asciilifeform: throw the buggerz off a lege.
PeterL: private-legitimacy -> privilege, or something
PeterL: IANAL (I am not a linguist)
mircea_popescu: they all take the d because of peculiarities of historical english pronounciation. without the d it becomes /ʒ/ as in juge, /ʒuʒ/
mircea_popescu: (currently you say it /d͡ʒud͡ʒ/)
PeterL: I would say the sound in edge and ledge is a bit harder than privilege, not quite the same thing
PeterL: another idea, could be related to liege? But now I am just pulling stuff out of my ass
mircea_popescu: this is the very point : priviledge is terminated in /d͡ʒ/ like knowledge or ledge ; not in /ʒ/ like liege.
mircea_popescu: and if you're not saying it like that, you fix the way you say it.
mircea_popescu: in any fucking case i'm not changing the way i write it, breaking historical compatibility in the process, to accommodate you feel like saying it this tuesday.
PeterL: but it is a different vowel sound too
mircea_popescu: it's a who ?
PeterL: privilege is more of a soft i sound, ledge has the soft e
PeterL: might just be my accent though
mircea_popescu: now that you're discussing phonetics without any basics, such as the ipa, is one thing. but you're discussing it without any consideration for thought!

mircea_popescu: etc etc.
PeterL: really, I am just giving you a hard time. I accept the word either way.
mircea_popescu: there's a reason i said sometime in 80s above. that'd be the reason.
mircea_popescu: i have no idea who even decided this, it just looks like someone in teacher's school just flipped a bit, started sending out teachers with corrupted spelling of prilivedge, and since nobody reads anything anyway it just perpetuated, ☟︎
mircea_popescu: like a new gene in a population of fucking silkworms.
mircea_popescu: culture ? what culture. this place has NO culture.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: hey it'd be the, what, 27th time this happened?
mircea_popescu: if tomorrow everyone starts yielling about how vaginas have balls, that's gonna be it, first population with ballsacs for both genders.
PeterL: isn't change a part of culture?
asciilifeform: english, like leper, has been losing limbs for its entire life.
mircea_popescu: change is not this blind and unaware beastly thing.
PeterL: this seems like a harmless change
mircea_popescu: change is change, like when i tell my mother listen, i used to like you but now i don't like you anymore ; not like when i wake up one day and don't even know i had one, like some sort of cat or somesuch.
mircea_popescu: PeterL at issue is not "harm", as per a personal and arbitrary definition. at issue is the process. change happens in actual cultures as an aware, commented process. not like this.
mircea_popescu: it happens like this in worms and mice.
PeterL: yes, this is a memetic mutation. these things happen
mircea_popescu: to idiots.
mircea_popescu: come to think of it, i know of no better definition of intelligence, than the absence of this process.
asciilifeform: eh hey, would mircea_popescu have preferred if some organized equivalent of webster had imposed this crapola , as the original did, by doctoring dictionaries ?
mircea_popescu: "a place for everything and everything in its place" exists for minds, too. it's called "know what the fuck are you doing and why you're doing it". the alternative is cosby's brain damage.
mircea_popescu: "i dunno..."
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform yes, because then i would still not have introduced - like i resisted changes by "romanian academy" to romanian ; but at least i'd have a ready something to point out as the breach.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: it is easier to shoot a man than 10,001 worms. which is WHY they send 10,001 worms.
mircea_popescu: like http://trilema.com/2011/stimata-academie/ or such
asciilifeform: go, shoot, they just break in 2.
asciilifeform: for worms - you need vermicide.
mircea_popescu: she cow pig had kittens ; and lived gladly ever after.
mircea_popescu: (for the innocent - as apparently #trilema is the only reference for that expression as far as google knows, and truly it knows jack shit : there's this slave language spoken in china where english words are used in the manner of idiomatics. it is incomprehensible in english ; the example given translates to "the" (because demonstrative pronoun is still she) "sow" (ie, female adult - cow ; as a particle it modifies pig into s
mircea_popescu: ow) "had pigglets" (ie, kittens, cubs).)
mircea_popescu: and as to the proper meaning of the word revolution (which is - spinning in place!) : about three centuries ago, back when industrialisation was well advanced much like computing today and the united colonies centered around fucking philadelphia were the republic of their time, the empire of china was very much the producer of all good things and disinterested in trade because why.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: pinoys speak similar language
mircea_popescu: im sure.
mircea_popescu: anyway. should be obvious that there's plenty more room for the anglopinoy to fall, before they reach their level.
mircea_popescu: but in conclusion : "i spell it priviledge as a mark of my priviledge."

shinohai: O.o mkay
mircea_popescu: actually since you brought it up it reminded me of vague discussion, so let's make it explicit. mod6 asciilifeform i dunno how practical it is yet, but eventually trb block mechanics will have to be expanded to memory datastore, so that it holds the current blk000n it's working on in ram and dumps it to disk only when full. MUCH easier to cache a disk with no writes on it. ☟︎☟︎☟︎
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: what means 'blk000n it's working on' ?
asciilifeform: as distinct from mempool ?
mircea_popescu: yes, mempool is just txn. the way blockchain is currently stored, it comes in these 2gb .dat files
mircea_popescu: or on some shit implementation even smaller (i recall a lulz at this in log)
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: those are just blocks shat to disk consecutively

asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: http://btc.yt/lxr/satoshi/source/src/main.h?v=asciilifeform_add_verifyall_option#0904 << nein
asciilifeform: it jizzes out blockwise.
asciilifeform: fwiw.
mircea_popescu: shinohai so it'd be practical for something like that, you know, all blockchain in memory. no disk seeks, faster. if you run something like blockchain.info (though i doubt they hold it all in ram)
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform this is my point. should jizz out filewise. ie, once it has a 2gb worth of file all built up, spit it out nice and contiguous.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: this optimization makes 0 practical difference, random access block reads remains the bottleneck on mechanical disks.
asciilifeform: (not even a seriously irritating bottleneck on a ~decent~ mech disk)
mircea_popescu: my profiling says the writes block the reads!
asciilifeform: of trb?

mircea_popescu: so at first empty ; then least used.
