ben_vulpes: asciilifeform: "because we can, therefore we must"?
ben_vulpes: phf: implying!
shinohai presents tits for everyone's viewing pleasure: https://pbs.twimg.com/media/C8NHU2GUAAI9rd7.jpg
phf: ( leaving this here for myself, awk's pattern for filtering uniques is !foo[$col]++ )
asciilifeform: in other crackpotteries, http://nosuchlabs.com/fg/fibertest/fg_isol_sender.jpg , http://nosuchlabs.com/fg/fibertest/fg_isol_receiver.jpg << mircea_popescu et al
asciilifeform: ^ going as we speak
phf: hax
asciilifeform: ^ is it obvious what is in the picture or do i have to explain.
phf: brilliant, we shall harness the power of LIGHT to make ourselves INVISIBLE to a common constable
asciilifeform: lul
asciilifeform: i suppose i do have to.
asciilifeform: pc atx +5v is not ideal voltage source. and has ripple from all sorts of places.
asciilifeform: FUCKGOATS includes a lowpass filter and three separate voltage regs, but the itch remains, does it make a diff if the thing were 1) powered by battery 2) isolated ENTIRELY from pc
asciilifeform: (2) requires a fiber
asciilifeform: so far it seems like the filter was designed CORRECTLY -- i.e. the setup makes 0 measurable difference, e.g., 'ent' takes ~same volume of bytes to converge pi as prior.
asciilifeform: (and yes thing is perfectly happy to run on 6v, as pictured)
asciilifeform: gets a ~little~ warmer...
asciilifeform: (linear regs, after all)
shinohai doesn't have one yet, but imagined he could run this from bench power supply ?
asciilifeform: shinohai: normally it runs from the usb-ttl snake's 5v
shinohai: nifty isolation though
asciilifeform: but yeah, pretty much anything 4-7v will work
asciilifeform: chinese piece of shit power brick, however, note, is likely to have MOAR ripple than your pc.
asciilifeform: battery is the gold standard.
asciilifeform: the fiber converter pictured here is the one from the last fiber thread

asciilifeform: i expect it would also work quite well for 'data diode' and similar applications.
asciilifeform: ( when i loopback it, connecting its arse and mouth -- worx )
asciilifeform: fiber here is 5 metres, cheapest plastic (not glass)
asciilifeform: ( before anyone asks 'wtf' -- the fibertron wants 3.3v, so it gets it from the tap in the jtag port )

trinque: someone was proud of this.
trinque: relatedly, two separate bums asked for money when I was fueling a very nice truck just now.
trinque: the first tried to touch me, so I told him to fuck off. the second kept his distance, so I helpfully let him know he should manage his money better.
trinque: gotta do what you can.
BingoBoingo: It's Texas. He who has the truck makes the rules.
trinque: so offer to pump my gas for me while I sit on my mobile throne. I might throw a couple bucks.
trinque: nah, one wants to shake hands like he's someone and the other rambles nonsense about helping da youf
BingoBoingo: Tell them if they jump in the back, you'll give em $30 to help you shovel a load of manure in, and they can pick their destination once the truck's loaded.

trinque: I did not properly record my lol at that idea.

ben_vulpes: possibly pvc pipes, according to link
mircea_popescu: pvc pipes carrying what ?
ben_vulpes: stored empty under the bridge
mircea_popescu: http://btcbase.org/log/2017-03-31#1635123 << this is ridiculous. for one thing, pvc piping is treated against this, won't burn by itself (much like how cigarette won't burn out, if you don't drag it goes out).☝︎
a111: Logged on 2017-03-31 05:44 ben_vulpes: stored empty under the bridge
mircea_popescu: for the other thing, leaving aside the whole "pvc doesn't actually burn hot enough to melt bridge" - suppose it's 16 inch schedule 80 pipe. that means 30 or so meters per ton, but it also means that if you store ten pipes on the ground (4 meters wide, this), with nine on top followed by eight on 3rd level etc you get five levels of that per two meters height. pvc is about 40 MJ/kg, the arrangement would yield 10+9+8+7+6 = 40m
mircea_popescu: total worth of pipe under any meter of bridge worth maaaybe 50-60 GJ/meter over however long they take to burn, half hour or such. even unventilated, what's that supposed to do ? next we're going to hear rpo-a shmel can take out us bridges an' shit.
mircea_popescu: (to be clear : this isn't an argument in the vein of "what happened didn;t happen", but merely an observation that the item must have been VERY poorly maintained for the collapse to occur. that it's being sold as disaster is very much in the vein of the 1923 "palace of established happiness" fire : the eunuchs dun really want anyone to see how much they've stolen, so there was a... fire.)

Framedragger: just ftr, i've been poking around scans.io which now has a search interface for (e.g.) all ipv4 space (among other things). e.g.: https://www.censys.io/ipv4/79.98.25.182/table#22 (ssh - banner, whole public key, etc.; also https, etc etc.)
Framedragger: ^ could be useful (obvs would be even more useful to replicate all that data and own it (so to speak))
Framedragger: but also a useful reminder that scanz done here are not original, and it's not an instance of "this was done before, whoops no data to show there." (ironically took a look at censys.io due to https://eprint.iacr.org/2015/262.pdf (hanno boeck's article))
shinohai: The deceitful shitbag strikes again.
Framedragger: i'm not convinced he lied (NOT TROLLING/BAITING) :D i think he may have just been daft, and expecting to be taken seriously when saying "oh i did dis. look an article"

asciilifeform: and doesn't do full port scan, has, e.g., nfi that dulap has bitcoin on 8333

asciilifeform: (because, i suspect, 'konsoomer' and various 'it wouldn't do' propositions)
asciilifeform: so presently asciilifeform is unimpressed
mircea_popescu: full port is slow and expensive though. "Censys collects data on hosts and websites through daily ZMap and ZGrab scans of the IPv4 address space, in turn maintaining a database of how hosts and websites are configured."
mircea_popescu: you'd prolly need 4k machines to do full port scans daily
asciilifeform: it sure is, Framedragger described how expensive. you end up regularly booted off isp
asciilifeform: or how did it go.

asciilifeform: looks like usg has ~everything starting with texas and below coloured in.
ben_vulpes: no mosquitos in centroamerica?
asciilifeform: incl. argentina, where the mosquitoes didn't even ~work~
mircea_popescu: in costa rica.
asciilifeform: (were unable to pierce asciilifeform's skin, at all)
mircea_popescu: may be a problem down by the beach ? (humans live way up in the mountain here)
ben_vulpes: hm interesting
mircea_popescu will now have this looked into.
ben_vulpes: ya, thx
asciilifeform: what does zika do to a grown man anyway
ben_vulpes: woman
mircea_popescu: pregnant women iirc
ben_vulpes: plus viral, so big fat ? on how long it hangs around
ben_vulpes: asciilifeform: imposes a great big fucking weight on a man's pocketbook, above and beyond the typical spawn
mircea_popescu: ok here we go :
mircea_popescu: "As of W5 2017, 1`722 confirmed cases of Zika have been reported in Costa Rica. As of W50 2016, the cantons reporting the highest cumulative rate per 10`000 population are Garabito(289), Orotina (266), and Esparza(235)."
mircea_popescu: none of which in san jose.
mircea_popescu: seems it peaked at 550 confirmed cases in august 2016 and is down to ~50 suspected cases by feb.
mircea_popescu: apparently they got a grand total of 3 probable cases. https://www.ministeriodesalud.go.cr/index.php/biblioteca-de-archivos/vigilancia-de-la-salud/analisis-de-situacion-de-salud/3243-boletin-epidemiologico-no-11-2017-zika-chikungunya-y-dengue/file
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes anyway, so bring the fixed ones ; or give it a few weeks, either way.
ben_vulpes: aya, noted
ben_vulpes: not doing a lot of travel for the next few years for obvious reasons
mircea_popescu: the thing is supposed to be an amenity not an inconvenience at any rate.
ben_vulpes: nono, i'd love to! 'twould be a riot! i am just exceptionally lazy
mircea_popescu: http://log.mkj.lt/trilema/20170331/#165 << pretty much the only cogent thing to say about that idiocy.☝︎
scriba: Logged on 2017-03-31: [15:52:39] <asciilifeform> number of microshit execs arrested and hanged : 0
mircea_popescu: anyway, cr geography is very california-like. there's beach and mountain.
mircea_popescu: the beach goes to both atlantic and pacific though, and the mountain's really a volcano, but anyway
ben_vulpes: i would very much like to piss into both oceans on the same day
ben_vulpes: that would please me
asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: and pet a jaguar.
asciilifeform: ( pretty sure cr is one of the few places that still has him )
mircea_popescu: yeah jaguars are cool
mircea_popescu: they're like cat**cat in terms of sheer elegance.
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes one of the best things to do with import sluts is take them up the arenal, you can watch the lava flow in the night.
ben_vulpes: the jet-turbine-powered motorbike of cats
mircea_popescu: but there's a general "This place is too fucking cool to sleep" vibe, and besides -- no one may claim they've had fruit before having them in cr. whole different ballgame re what ripe actually means.
mircea_popescu: oh, and also, as the latest addition to trilema headerspace may attest, i look strapping in a panama hat!
asciilifeform: i see a hog-tied chick
mircea_popescu: it picks randomly

shinohai: I have the tied up girl too ... perfect for my guests earlier.
mircea_popescu: she's not even tied, just discarded.
shinohai: I see you have traded the machete for an umbrella.
shinohai hopes it shoots poison darts .....
asciilifeform: ffffffpt.
mircea_popescu: lol
mircea_popescu: shoots tzetze flies
shinohai: A bit more merciful than teste flies.
mircea_popescu: incidentally the t
mircea_popescu: tzetze is one of the most effectual human repellants. there's a large area of verdant africa which stays that way because neither cattle nor obamas can live there.
mircea_popescu: and by large we mean like 10mn sqkms sorta large.
trinque: mircea_popescu: congrats on the move! enjoyed my brief tour of CR very much, will be back through someday.
mircea_popescu: aha
ben_vulpes: bwahaha
ben_vulpes: got a piece of paper from some government science department, "response required by law"
asciilifeform: lolwat
ben_vulpes: veen's over there ranting about how "fuck buddy and here i thought forever stamps a decent hedge against inflation but NO the FUCKING GOVERNMENT can just MAKE YOU BURN THEM"
mircea_popescu: wait wut
asciilifeform: how is printolade ( the last time asciilifeform bought postage stamps, they came out of an INKJET PRINTER i shit thee not, right in the vending machine) a hedge of any sort ?
ben_vulpes: it's a postage stamp asciilifeform
ben_vulpes: it's not actually a hedge
asciilifeform: betcha somebody, somewhere, really did think 'oh hey a fiddycent treasury bond' at some point.
ben_vulpes regards the fireproof lockbox of stamps sadly
ben_vulpes: i thought this was how warren buffet got rich
ben_vulpes: scam
asciilifeform: lul
mircea_popescu: no he collected chewing gum wrappers
mircea_popescu: whole different thing!
asciilifeform: oh speaking of
asciilifeform: word has it that wriggley co. is in hot water with ru gov
asciilifeform: for selling chewing gum where wrapper had instruction 'climb to the top of a tall building and think of what you must accomplish before death'
asciilifeform: it was supposed to be a lol, but mistimed, there is a mass hysteria in ru presently re 'gas fairy' and similar memes
ben_vulpes: gas fairy?
mircea_popescu: here's some random lul : wolbachia is possibly the most successful bacteria ; in any case is the most widely distributed sexual transmitted disease ; about half of all insects extant carry some form ; many species can't reproduce if uninfected, or cant' even survive.
asciilifeform: https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/3037124/kids-suffer-horrific-burns-in-sinister-fire-fairy-online-game-which-tricks-them-into-turning-on-gas-ringsafter-blue-whale-suicide-game-is-linked-to-130-deaths/ << english , just for ben_vulpes
mircea_popescu: ONE of the things wolbachia does is... feminize! (because sperm can't carry it, only females do). so it makes these feminine or pseudo-feminine male insects.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: al schwartz wrote about a similar parasite in fish
mircea_popescu: considering how poorly understood infection is, i wonder how many of the contemporaneous faux males are actually biologically infected with dumbass rather than just genetically unfit.
shinohai: !~later tell BingoBoingo http://wotpaste.cascadianhacker.com/pastes/UgQoa/?raw=true <<< a nice, lulzy way to round up this month
jhvh1: shinohai: The operation succeeded.
mircea_popescu: and it also provides drm! infected males can't reproduce with disease-free females (or females infected by other strains).
mircea_popescu: quite the fascinating little bugger.
mircea_popescu: !~google trichogramma
