pete_dushenski: asciilifeform: wasn't the question. care to answer it ?
asciilifeform: which q. i'm trying to work in order here
pete_dushenski: you set the bar here, not me. i'm genuinely curious what alfatronic 'remarkable build' looks like.
asciilifeform: 'remarkable build' for pc would be, say, water cooling thing made from toyota. ( asciilifeform had this nonsense as a student. )
pete_dushenski: lolk just needed that point of reference. ty.
asciilifeform: at any rate it is about as much of an intellectual exercise as building chair from 'ikea' etc.

asciilifeform: you buy the boards, the tin, etc. and they snap together in exactly 1 way.
asciilifeform: the model airplane you glued when you were 5, was harder.

asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: pete_dushenski posted link to $10k x86 lappy. and asciilifeform remarked that it is similar box to what he built for nowhere close to 10k usd.

mircea_popescu: ty. howdja get it ?
asciilifeform: it was memorable
asciilifeform: because compact, correct description of 'what is array'
mircea_popescu: nice. wanted to re=read it anyway.
mircea_popescu is preparing lisp mega-article. only 30k words or so.
asciilifeform: http://www.xach.com/naggum/articles/3236870273259433@naggum.net.html << possibly related, re the 'resources' thing
asciilifeform: 'Common Lisp is a big-city language. Spit out the hayseed, pronounce "shit" with one syllable and "shotgun" with two. You're not in Kansas, anymore. C is the language of the poor farmer village where the allocation of every seed and livestock matters, where taxes are low and public service non-existent.'
asciilifeform: ^ actually a discussion of cl strings!
mircea_popescu: this makes me loathe lisp and prefer c.
mircea_popescu: there is no future, for the record, for the "big city" understood as rules of pronounciation, high taxes and "public services".
asciilifeform: this goes back to the 'tallest tower' thread.
mircea_popescu: much like his "car going off road is bad mkay" made my skin crawl. why the fuck would i ALWAYS go anywhere there's a road, what am i, too young to grow a beard ?
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform there is NO RELATION between civilisation and impotence.
asciilifeform: why does 'city with paved roads and indoor plumbing' necessarily equate to 'impotence' ?
mircea_popescu: phf for instance, is shockingly delicate, specifically because he's more from russia than you. and the japanese folk, ESPECIALLY back in the days when misspeaking to samurai == beheading, were remarkably delicate also.
asciilifeform: i must've missed one hell of a thread. where, e.g., phf was 'delicate'..?
mircea_popescu: so no, civilisation doth exist irrespective of "follow the road and wear breeches"
mircea_popescu: it doesn't shock you, the man's delicacy ?
asciilifeform: are we talking of same d00d? because the phf i recall sleeps in a tent, in arizona desert, surrounded by 48 virgins
asciilifeform: or what was it.
mircea_popescu: i meant in demeanor.
asciilifeform: dunno, maybe he sat in kresty, and just weighs words veeery carefully.
mircea_popescu: which is the point, somewhat.
mircea_popescu: "big city" is very specifically NOT the big city where naggum dreamed to move, as depicted in sex and the city.
asciilifeform: actually from my reading naggum's 'city' is simply 'place where the mains sockets work, the roads are smooth, and vehicle can be mercedes and not necessarily mule'
mircea_popescu: big city as in, new orleans, with low taxes and slaves. not as in new york, with high taxes, "public services" and "pronounce words this way"
mircea_popescu: this is a generous read to the point of wishful thinking, i suspect.
asciilifeform: 'public service' does not necessarily mean 'communist', just means that it is available to folks within the walls. can have price of admission, as in medieval germany, it is not specified how 'public road' is paid for.
mircea_popescu: but in any case there's absolutely no progre monopoly on civilisation. on the contrary.
asciilifeform: naggum, for instance, used payware lisptrons that cost megabux.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform define "public service" if you will ?
asciilifeform: 'available ad libitum to those within the walls'
mircea_popescu: naggum evidently intends restrictions as to shape AND USAGE. this you don't see because you opt to, but in his world, as constructed from his words, it is legitimate for someone to come and tell you "this isn't a proper use of the public service", and it is illegitimate for you to retort "tough"
asciilifeform: it so happens that i read all of the material from the naggum archive. and apparently d00d lived in oslo, a very strongly socialist hellhole, and hated it for all of the right reasons.
asciilifeform: (tax on auto, for instance, was 100k usd iirc)
mircea_popescu: ironically, i'd make the auto tax 100x yearly average income.
asciilifeform: the lulzy bit is that places like oslo, bangkok, etc. with draconian auto tax, still have jams.
asciilifeform: just not of car.

mircea_popescu: could set the footnote to arbitrary anything, but meh. and i see no good way out of the comment thing, because it ~is~ stuck parsing the comment.
asciilifeform: mp-wp supports footnotes ~in comments~ ?!
mircea_popescu: nah.
mircea_popescu: though it prolly should huh.
asciilifeform: !~later tell BingoBoingo what the hell does one use to get gap-sealing foam off skin ? my hands look like 'advance leprousy' after two dozen washes with 4+ solvents..
jhvh1: asciilifeform: The operation succeeded.
mircea_popescu: ahahaha
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Has it cured yet?
asciilifeform: of course!
BingoBoingo: And why weren't you using nitrile gloves?!
asciilifeform: and with liberal admixture of dirt and insects
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: didn't feel like climbing down from ladder to get'em.
BingoBoingo: Well, sandpaper works
BingoBoingo: acetone sometimes works on hard surfaces...
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: yeah, got most of it off with wet sand, still remains the conformal crud.
asciilifeform: acetone failed.
BingoBoingo: Aha, you've got a rather solid cure then
asciilifeform: very solid, a++++
BingoBoingo: Well pretty much limited to mechanical removal nao
BingoBoingo: Wait 24 hours
BingoBoingo: then try lava soap
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform just wait. your skin exfoliates naturally, they will come off.
mircea_popescu: WAY better than giving yourself contact dermatitis.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: well noshit. is what i normally do.
mircea_popescu: there is ~no good chem solution for your problem as it is.
asciilifeform: q was about 'exists faster method?'
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i am currently satisfied that this is so.
mircea_popescu: carbon sulfide, which is carcinogenic.
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: and funnily enough, first thing i did was (knockoff) lava soap.
asciilifeform: i keep it in the work room.
BingoBoingo: Anyways pumice and time
asciilifeform: (there is no running water there and so it is the only wash..)
candi_lustt: The variable is is unbound.
asciilifeform: lol! how did ^ happen
BingoBoingo: if still tacky you can cover foamskin with powder
asciilifeform: parentheses ??
asciilifeform: ( )
candi_lustt: nil
asciilifeform: lol
mircea_popescu: aw fuck
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes can it only retort if its name is on the line ? otherwise this will become problematic
ben_vulpes: mircea_popescu: it needs to be fed your brain
ben_vulpes: !!up candi_lustt

candi_lustt: mircea_popescu: http://p.bvulpes.com/pastes/PSAht/?raw=true
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes i don't want her to do anything specifically, but she also can't answer to a single-open-parens control sequence
mircea_popescu: i guess can have !( for it and you wipe ! ?
ben_vulpes: foo(+ 1)
ben_vulpes: can't the lords be trusted to shut her up when they're done playing?
mircea_popescu: (+ 1 "no good")
candi_lustt: The value "no good" is not of type number
asciilifeform: why not have the thing answer to its own name strictly
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes iffy, too promisetronic will cause a bunch of hurt fingers.
mircea_popescu: yeah.
asciilifeform: then no need to switch it on/off, other than for maintenance
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes the idea is for this to be a toy-level learn-lisp item ; can't add a "AND IF YOU DO ARCANE THING YOU DIE" coda.
ben_vulpes: hehk
ben_vulpes: !( , yes?
ben_vulpes: if we wanted to be cute it could be ,(
mircea_popescu: sure.
mircea_popescu: nah, stick to !
ben_vulpes: k
phf: asciilifeform: there are two incompatible eating methods, "eat" function and the ^( mode. i added the latter for my own convenience, because number of times i want to type a sexp is way higher than a literate string that opens with paren. obviously doesn't scale to a channel full of people, who have much less need for a repl bot
asciilifeform: phf et al : i still don't get why not simply candi_lustt (+ 2 2)
candi_lustt: asciilifeform: error, see: http://p.bvulpes.com/pastes/BwzNj/?raw=true
asciilifeform: lel
mircea_popescu: phf if usage goes wai up we'll figure something out.
mircea_popescu: so far mostly trying to tease out practical utility.
mircea_popescu: both wanting a clean channel and wanting a repl bot are legitimate wants, neither necessarily has to yield to the other, we see how it goeth.
phf: asciilifeform: just look at the chainstate log. that's how it was. but on one hand it became impractical to prefix every time. and the other reason is that c*ndi_lustt is not a repl bot by original design. "BRAIN" function supposed to take arbitrary text, and process it. in order to actually get to repl you have to use "c*ndi_lustt eat <url>"
mircea_popescu: aha.
ben_vulpes: !(princ "done")
candi_lustt: "done"
asciilifeform: ! ((lambda (x) (list x (list (quote quote) x))) (quote (lambda (x) (list x (list (quote quote) x)))))
mircea_popescu: (+ 2 2)

mircea_popescu: ! (+ 2 2)
mircea_popescu: ((+ 2 2))
mircea_popescu: call it good.
ben_vulpes: pls no more fuzzing
mircea_popescu: lol poor vulpes.
mircea_popescu: didja have fun ?
phf: !(loop for i from 1 to 1000 collect i)
candi_lustt: (1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 34 35 36 37 38 39 40 41 42 43 44 45 46 47 48 49 50 51 52 53 54 55 56 57 58 59 60 61 62 63 64 65 66 67 68 69 70 71 72 73 74 75 76 77 78 79 80 81 82 83 84 85 86 87 88 89 90 91 92 93 94 95 96 97 98 99 100 ...)
ben_vulpes: the fun parts were fun, i learned rather a lot, i have a deeper hate of irc than i did a week ago...
mircea_popescu: phf if you feel like it, you can do a weekly lisp class by appointment, look in the log when there's usually holes and intersect with your schedule and there you go.
mircea_popescu: "weds 14:00 to 16:00, phf's lisp class".
ben_vulpes: you only need a phf to teach noobs if the noob is you
mircea_popescu: heh.
mircea_popescu: you laugh ben_vulpes , but consider that a 15yo mp, much more imperious, much less sexually and otherwise pacified, had to go to school. PUBLIC school.
asciilifeform: didn't mircea_popescu only show up for exam day or the like
mircea_popescu: i showed up for ~40% of classes. which was about the most either me or the system could carry.
phf: that's not a bad idea
mircea_popescu: but the teachers were still petrified.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: imho at some point we oughta pick up again the 'big city' thread, because the engineering tradeoffs of, e.g., gc, (esp. on hardware that does 0 to help) are very real.
mircea_popescu: go right ahead.
asciilifeform: it isn't even a subj particular to lisp.
mircea_popescu: certainly not.
asciilifeform: imho best thread re same was the 'unix vs msdos' one
asciilifeform: where, yes you can run >1 proggy on 1 box, but there are very real costs.
asciilifeform: they dun get to talk to the iron directly, etc.
mircea_popescu: how's this relate to imperial vs republican big city ?
asciilifeform: well that's what i'd like to study from mircea_popescu .
asciilifeform: because 'republican city' is not a subj i am deeply familiar with.
asciilifeform: i only know 2 types of city -- today's, and stereotypical-medieval
asciilifeform: in the latter, you dump shit out of window, and rivers of piss fill the streets
mircea_popescu: it's not clear to me that any engineering issues are in fact involved. all i see are purely psychogenic issues improperly welded to the foregoing. you don't need nor can have any meaningful implementation of "public servicves", not ever. getting oneself to believe the contrary is a strange exercise in contorsionism
asciilifeform: what's the sewer then
asciilifeform: or the water.
mircea_popescu: there are known from history many numerous models of cities.
asciilifeform: will tell me that rome's aqueduct was not 'public service' ? is 'public service' only idiot traffic cop ?
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform when i had you define "public good" you said "endlessly abundant item". this is nonsense, nothing is endlessly abundant.
asciilifeform: when'd i say 'endless'
asciilifeform: said 'ad libitum', i.e. not individually+transactionally dispensed
mircea_popescu: <asciilifeform> 'available ad libitum to those within the walls' << this means there's an infinite supply.
asciilifeform: only if you have a miniature black hole, with endless appetite, in your city.
mircea_popescu: this is a fiction, which may be convenient for personal reasons. but nothing is like this. note above : we have an infinity of chatlines, literally, avaailable each day. nevertheless, the bot is vaguely constrained.
mircea_popescu: "if it looks like it's running out, we'll do something about it."
asciilifeform: we do not however have an infinite of brain cycles. hence banishments of low snr folk etc
mircea_popescu: ie, not qs.
mircea_popescu: yes. nothing can be qs, not in this world, which is why your definition of "public good" is not a definition.
mircea_popescu: (qs i will remind stands for quantum sufficit, or else satiem. satiem is the word that gave sated. the presumption here, etymologically-amusing as it is, is that something can be qs only if there's no "black hole" of appetite. mmkay.)
mircea_popescu: this is also how banking works, "you can have all the money you don't need you could wish -- but don't ask for money when you need it!"
asciilifeform: qs is exactly what i was thinking! ty mircea_popescu
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform used to be written on medicine bottles. back before medicine became rationalized.
asciilifeform: and yes it is a somewhat promisetronic thing. no need even to go as far as bank. go an' see what happens if you want 1000 amps from your mains connection.
asciilifeform: on short notice.
mircea_popescu: ok so then. stop using strings for concepts. what do you mean by "public good" ?
asciilifeform: perhaps: item that is impractical to withhold from freeloaders, but nevertheless must be paid for.
mircea_popescu: ie, bullets ?
asciilifeform: in the sense of 'bullets will fly but whether you paid determines the direction' ?
asciilifeform: not quite what i had in mind, no.
mircea_popescu: no, in the sense it's impractical to not shoot them, but still the bullet is produced.
asciilifeform: this is somewhat arcane and my gas mask is clogged, can haz expanded ver plz.
mircea_popescu looks at kresty prison overhead pic, notices that building set on its right is painted in international color of courthouse. mmkay.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i was just observing shooting is a public good by your definition. not practical to keep it from freeloaders, still has a cost.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: shooting thieves in the street, or rabid weasels, etc. definitely 'public good' -- they remain dead for all the misers who hadn't paid for exterminator service aha
mircea_popescu: i was thinking more in the lines of, shooting obama. puts him out of his misery of pretending like he's a person.
mircea_popescu: going to all that trouble etc.
asciilifeform: any rabid weasel works equally well for this one.
asciilifeform: large, small.
mircea_popescu: yes, except the rabid weasel does not seem to WANT this public good.
asciilifeform: noshit.
asciilifeform: if shit could talk, it probably would not want to be flushed either.
mircea_popescu: which is somewhat counterintuitive. so i was examining if you're going to stick with the definition or redefine in face of it.
asciilifeform: it doesn't strike me as counterintuitive at all, is actually the exact thing i was thinking of.
asciilifeform: clean street, or dead politicians, etc. remain 'working' for the nonpaying folx.
mircea_popescu: yes, but what does it mean "it's not practical to withhold" ?
asciilifeform: well you can't , afaik, set up world where the payers get to live obummer-free but the cheapskates get another 8 yrs of him.
mircea_popescu: (i beg forgiveness if i just snap yoru words to classical discourse on the topic, it's for the greater good)
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform why not ? split up.
asciilifeform: if you can properly and surgically cut it, and sell piecemeal, then it is not 'public good' but normal workaday commercial good.
mircea_popescu would pay to see in practice the equivalent of salic electoral law, considering how lulzily salic inheritance worked irl. enough of this angevin bs. you vote in electiosn, then each side gets half the country. and so going each 4 years.
mircea_popescu: soon enough, 1024 countries of manageable size.
asciilifeform: sorta like how monkey troopy divvy up the jungle, neh
asciilifeform: iirc africa presently works like this.
mircea_popescu: more or less yea
asciilifeform: and sooner or later the other africa also will.
asciilifeform: just -- not yet.
mircea_popescu: in the absence of a forum, it's the only workable way.
mircea_popescu: which brings the problem back home : most of the problems you discuss have a huge language externality.
asciilifeform: forum! another publicgood.
mircea_popescu: take fucking. the women are pregnant for all, irrespective how many fuck them.
mircea_popescu: yet somehow THIS particular public good is never too problematic
asciilifeform: sunlight is ~the~ good but also not problematic, because it dun give a fuck whether anyone asked for it or not, and there is no credit card slot to pay into for it.
asciilifeform: just as you also do not have to pay for arithmetic to work.
mircea_popescu: but in point of fact, whether mp alone is repsonsible for half us live births this year, like it works in africa / oceania ; or not -- live births there will be.
asciilifeform: so these are not 'public goods' as contemplated here.
mircea_popescu: well... you will need a new definition then
asciilifeform: why?
asciilifeform: i did mention 'but still has to be paid for'
mircea_popescu: what do you mean why. because you want to exclude items that match it.
mircea_popescu: fucking is paid for.
mircea_popescu: and depends how you define "paid for", sun may also be.
asciilifeform: if it will happen just the same if not paid for , then does not match condition 'must be paid for'
mircea_popescu: the price for its light is a definite limit in time ; it will eventually grow hot.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform seems dubious.
mircea_popescu: http://btcbase.org/log/2017-01-13#1602276 << lol. they're FACTORIAL not exponential. plox to be serious here, no exp can match this.☝︎

mircea_popescu: as good a statement as any re why moore law can't ever produce ai.
asciilifeform: ^ doesn't seem like a notion in particularly dire need of disproof tho. just as 'why bricks cannot birth rats'
mircea_popescu: yes. but i think it's very informative to examine it from angles.
asciilifeform: ( re 'public good', the removal of the 'great stink' from 1850s london, by the construction of the -- very costly -- sewer system, finest at the time in the world, is imho instructive. they DID first try every possible method of 'eliminate the problem strictly for mircea_popescu !' -- parliament soaked curtains in lime, folx walked around with cloth masks, etc. but eventually queen barfed when sailing in pleasure boat, and that was t

mircea_popescu: london sewer was not by any means first in world ; but how do you distinguish between the l1 of london building sewer and ben_vulpes making me slut bot ?
asciilifeform: def. not first!
asciilifeform: rome -- 1st.
mircea_popescu: "why didn;t they do it sooner!" "cuz they didn't feel like it!" "but why did they do it at all!" "cuz they felt like it!"
asciilifeform: and iirc rome got one for ~same reason.
