asciilifeform in other noose, now has a pretty clean 'transparently mmapize arbitrary object to disk' ada thing.
BingoBoingo: Anyways, color of paint is secondary or even tertiary concern. Promary purpose of paint is as protective coating
asciilifeform: in other lulzies, https://archive.is/Q2dN5
asciilifeform: 'If the North Koreans hesitate to open fire, for obvious reasons of national survival and common sense, there is a back-up team of shooters, namely the Maritime Self-Defense Force of Japan. A volley of Mitsubishi anti-ship missiles should do the job of sinking the U.S. Seventh Fleet and drowning the American sailors. The news media will assign the blame on Pyongyang for the dastardly deed.'
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform you know i've been thinking about the conway thing. it's nigh on fascinating, a perfect case of "aging engineer falls into female culture" to use the terminology of http://trilema.com/2017/menstruation-lulz/
mircea_popescu: totally worth writing a biography, "l. conway - from reality to convention. a life."
asciilifeform: there was an earlier case, more familiar to asciilifeform : saharov
mircea_popescu: can anyone dig up a contact for the fellow ? i'd actually do an interview.
asciilifeform: http://ai.eecs.umich.edu/people/conway/conway.html << it's there
mircea_popescu: o.O
asciilifeform: ( saharov died eons ago, however )
asciilifeform: ( y'know, this d00d, http://ru-an.info/Photo/News/n3889/3.jpg )
mircea_popescu: eh, the usians also have one of these, "nuclear physicist / peace advocate"
asciilifeform: they, unfortunately, did not have a competent set of puppeteers, and a nobel-dispensing 'international komyoonity', to put theirs on proper podium
mircea_popescu: sure they did.
asciilifeform: .. jimmy carter?
asciilifeform: or who
mircea_popescu: i thought carter was a drunk.
mircea_popescu: rotblatt, say.
asciilifeform: first time i hear of a rotblatt.
mircea_popescu: o.o really ?
asciilifeform: rly.

asciilifeform: aah them
asciilifeform: moar limited thing.
asciilifeform: these folx never got a podium on which to pour shit over entire american system, say, and 'dissident'ate, and gleefully preside over disassembly of usg
asciilifeform: so not quite saharov.
mircea_popescu: of course they did.
asciilifeform: lolwat
asciilifeform: on what planet
mircea_popescu: the adventure of that unfortunate idiot bailey is exactly that -- the dissemblement of the entire system people like orlov, and like rotblatt, and like every tard in between shat on for a half century.
asciilifeform: oppenheimer could have easily been a saharov. but instead he was stripped of his rank and given a swift kick in the arse when he took up with the left.
mircea_popescu: it's still called the same thing, but it has ~same to do with its own history as today's russia with historical soviet union.

mircea_popescu: s/orlov/wtf was it. arthur blair's pseudonym.
asciilifeform: orwell
mircea_popescu: right.
mircea_popescu: i ended up with both mapping to "orlol" in my head now i can't distinguish irl.
mircea_popescu: this isn't to say that the previous system was any good -- it truly was about as good as the soviet union, which is to say worse than nothing.

mircea_popescu: in typical ignoramus fashion, he is missing the jackson us in there, annexing florida and shit.
asciilifeform: that's 2
mircea_popescu: i really recommend against using yarvin's mental models for anything, they're well broken.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform no, on the face that'd be lincoln not jackson. very different items.
asciilifeform: lincoln -- creator of 3
asciilifeform: fdr -- of 4
mircea_popescu: jackson was an american. lincol was a humanitarian.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform fdr made 3 not 4, evidently. 4 is more or less kennedy.
asciilifeform: i picked it up because afaik it is quite accurate. the 4 stages are quite distinguishable .
mircea_popescu: it is only accurate if one's account of us history is made after reading it rather than before.
mircea_popescu: there should be a book written about these "earworms" let's call it, little bits of memetic stupid that work on the innocent strictly, and reconfigure what'd have been a natural construction into stupidity.
mircea_popescu: it's 9x% of the us education system by mass.
asciilifeform: fdr centralized , e.g., academia, created the familiar grantola trough, magicked modern fiatola into existence. quite definitively the builder of usg4.
mircea_popescu: we'll never agree on this point.
mircea_popescu: in any case, roosevelt was about as fascist as mussolini
mircea_popescu: pretty much the same ideas throughout (which is not surprising, mediocre men reflect the fashions of the age, news at 1100 ad.)
asciilifeform: the paralytic gold confiscator was very much the undertaker of the earlier (carnegie, rockefeller, et al - producing) culture.
mircea_popescu: yes, but that earlier is arguably the rarara monroe doctrine us "european power" of jackson
asciilifeform: they -- had a dying spain to eat.
asciilifeform: so naturally 'rahrah'
mircea_popescu: aha.
mircea_popescu: see ? but none of that LARGE and important thing is in yarvin.
asciilifeform: sure it is.
mircea_popescu: what can i tell ya.
mircea_popescu: anyway, the hamilton-carnegie us has a) little to do with the jpmorgan-rockefeller us, and also entirely nothing to do with the jackson-nixon-bush us.
mircea_popescu: this isn't a nation you're discusing, it's a spot of dog vomit, a chimera of isolated cultural pockets.
asciilifeform: hamilton & carnegie ?!
mircea_popescu: and i don't mean "cultural pockets" as in, people from chicago talk funny. i mean isolated cultural pockets as in, the jefferson-hamilton debate of 1700 is still live and kicking in 2000, argued in the sense of dumb rehashing by the same people in different costumes.
asciilifeform: what, ~century apart ?!
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform ayup.
asciilifeform: describe plox the split between whatever it is that connects h & c, vs jpm & r.
mircea_popescu: the agitolalia re "progress" is especially funny in a place that's literally still playing the same plays.
asciilifeform: 1700?!
asciilifeform: 1800
asciilifeform: omfg
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform alright. there's two ways to look at money, once you agree (as all of these do) that the principal function of money is to organise human activity while avoiding the costs of http://trilema.com/2014/the-battlefield-of-the-future/#footnote_3_53044
mircea_popescu: one is to regard it as a symbol, the other is to regard it as a property.
asciilifeform: money-is-property, as i understand , is the old, demolished civilized world.
asciilifeform: money-is-symbol is hamilton->lincoln->fdr->kennedy->obummer et al.
mircea_popescu: that doesn't really enter into any of this. you asked for a disjunction i gave you the genus and specific difference.
mircea_popescu: that doesn't mean you're now at liberty to savage all over the livingroom finery.
asciilifeform: i dun see any finery, but only 2 symbols of which mircea_popescu seems to say i do not know the meaning.
asciilifeform: so let's expand plox?
mircea_popescu: ok, what're we expanding on nao ?
asciilifeform: start with money-as-property
mircea_popescu: it wasn't in my text.
asciilifeform: http://btcbase.org/log/2017-04-20#1646480 << ?☝︎
a111: Logged on 2017-04-20 13:49 mircea_popescu: one is to regard it as a symbol, the other is to regard it as a property.
mircea_popescu: yes. it doesn't mean "money-as-property" in the sense of "old destroyed world, i get to keep my money". it means money as property in the sense of, money IS A PROPERTY of other objects. like being the color red.
asciilifeform: aah hm
asciilifeform: ( omfg the poverty of english !! )
mircea_popescu: the hamilton school, money as symbol, attempts to construct a grammar of the world wherein money is a word like all the others, and with it finally complete the ancient kaballah task of reading the true bible.
mircea_popescu: the jpm school, not being jewish, simply aims to you know, resolve THE PROBLEM of this property, like they'd cure the common cold or the misfortune of being black.
mircea_popescu: which is why eugenics sticks to one but not the other, say.
asciilifeform: this is a point.
mircea_popescu: the classification of ideas is a very useful scholarly discipline.

mircea_popescu: lel
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform you don't get it : the russians did it.
mircea_popescu: had the usg terrorist organisation done it, it'd have been all a-ok by these wrecker's lights.
mircea_popescu: anyway, vaguely curious if the russians are actually going to try the espionage case or just bury the schmuck in a hole somewhere.
asciilifeform: dun look like espionage case
asciilifeform: moar of a colourrevolutioning case

asciilifeform: qntra ddosated ?
trinque: appears that way.
asciilifeform: trinque: how did the gentoo go ?
trinque: musl and x11 are angry at each other yet, something to do with the way x11 loads modules
trinque: I dug a glibc trench for now while I fiddle with musl+X
trinque: also have an apu2 on the way which will be a dedicated gentoo+musl. I'll write up the unboxing and gentooing of that guy when it arrives.
trinque: re: musl and X, you have to tell it in xorg.conf what order to load modules in. had this for intel, but don't know the proper incantation yet for amd/ati
asciilifeform: trinque: what kind of drive will you use in the apu2?
asciilifeform: ( it has sata plug, but no room in the case for a 2.5 inch disk; typically people get 'm-sata' laptop-style ssd for these )
asciilifeform: iirc it has 3 sockets for the latter.
asciilifeform: i disrecommend the use of the sd card hole, it is (unsurprisingly) agonizingly slow.
asciilifeform: ditto usb hole (they are usb2)
trinque: probably yep, m-sata gumstick drives
trinque: there's a decent store 10min away that stocks about as well as newegg, can go get something once I have the apu2 and see what will fit nicely in the case.
trinque: "Micro Center"
asciilifeform: we have one of these also
asciilifeform: it ate, some years ago, a similar one, 'comp usa'
BingoBoingo: Aha, comp usa didn't sell machines. They sold "service plans" and "financing"

asciilifeform: for a supposed enemy of the empire, to host that liquishit ( incidentally it is produced in concert with traditional spammers, i have an entire mailbox that has become unusable because it takes in flashlight spam faster than it can be removed ) is a disgrace.
BingoBoingo: I have no idea why flashlight spam, also recieve said genera in spades.
BingoBoingo may be becoming spamblind
asciilifeform: the most irritating imho thing is that the crud is EXACTLY the same on ~all 'popular' www.
asciilifeform: not merely similar, but SAME
asciilifeform: exactly same liquishit on 'the guardian', 'new york times', and this derp
asciilifeform: because apparently he thought that being a public whore is worth the fivebux/mo or whatever it paid.
