fbar: who seems to enjoy magic tricks
Avarice_: Fbar is in need of lordship to justify his existence
fbar: And my advisor will free me soon enough
jpt4: La Serenissima is one of the few institutions capable of accepting, and worthy of demanding, a sincere oath of loyalty.
fbar: An oath given freely is worth as much
mircea_popescu: an oath huh.
BingoBoingo: Faith without works is dead
jpt4: Mr. Popescu has not shied from testing potential allies in the past.
jpt4: I recall his video poker challenge to Urbit some years ago.

jpt4: Give fbar a test.
mircea_popescu: why can't fbar start by adding his key and doing something useful like everyone else ?
BingoBoingo: Surely there's a courthouse or college campus that needs 3+ cubic yards of fresh uncomposted horse manure for the lulz. I'd rate such a delivery a +2 *if only there were a key to attribute it to*

trinque: what the hell was all that
mircea_popescu: teenage hijinks ?
trinque: guess so eh
mircea_popescu: but in further wtf of today : http://unqualified-reservations.blogspot.com/2013/01/noam-chomsky-killed-aaron-swartz.html
mircea_popescu: with the mention that i absolutely don't see his point re chomsky ; but i do see his point re... himself.
mircea_popescu: why's them ghetto folk need to feel & be this contorted, really ? he's going to write a piece to confess imaginary crimes he summoned up for the circumstance which do not exist for any other reason than to try and misrepresent into their opposite his actual feelings about his misconstrued notions of a third party ?
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: didja even read the linked item ?
mircea_popescu: "i think chomsky is really cool because i imagine chomsky to be this guy who is read worldwide and got really rich out of feeding people ''''alt-blue pills in a red coating''' (yes i'm aware this is nonsense, but it is also easy reference to a by now readily understood brand of nonsense this particular idiot club deals in) and i wanna be just like him!!1" becomes "here's some random '''nobody said them so they'll get said bec
mircea_popescu: ause it's online and we gotta compete on wordage''' items about current event which i'ma misrepresent as somewhow related to me really really hating the chomsky guy i really look up to for the reasons i actually look up to him, notwithstanding the whole pile exists only in my too-lazy-to-actually-read and too-eager-to-imagine-i-got-it-at-first-sentence''' dumber-than-rocks '''child prodigy''' head"
mircea_popescu: wtf. and what the fuck is a "child prodigy" even!
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform yes. the basis of the comment is me reading the whole "Shaft in plato cave" nonsense.
mircea_popescu: (without, of course, references or anything. child prodigy is child prodigy!11")
asciilifeform: chomsky is in fact a leftist darling, powered by 50yr. vintage academitard cred
mircea_popescu: this is true. but this is not what he says.
mircea_popescu: chomsky is, also, for opening bids, the only guy who pointed out what mp pointed out re joe stack. yes his version of "sops, you're cutting the branch you're sitting on" is neither as cogent, articulated, useful or descriptive as mine. but this is because he is old, comparatively stupid and comparatively uncultured.
mircea_popescu: nevertheless, you're now stuck reconciling this item where this lefty darling sees the right perspective.
mircea_popescu: and says it. wut do ?
asciilifeform: tame oppositioner ( a la zhirinovsky ) - typical
mircea_popescu: your stance is that this can be just assumed about anyone any time ?
asciilifeform: no, not anyone.
mircea_popescu: a tribunal made of alf and working on alf principle as above, would hang alf for... http://btcbase.org/log/2017-05-10#1654187☝︎
a111: Logged on 2017-05-10 16:34 asciilifeform: right. i dun mean the physical box, mircea_popescu . i meant 'in my head, i dun have a trilema' to say.
mircea_popescu: yes, maybe he speaks half truths because reasons. maybe he's just not bright enough to go further ?
asciilifeform: but simple observation that ~actual~ oppositioner will not be permitted mansions and titles inside the reich he is nominally opposing.
mircea_popescu: this matter may be examined, like any matter, but the examination is neither substantiated nor concluded by the one sentence "coach sandusky had nothing on him". where are the fucking examples, notes, etcetera ?
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i got mansions and whatever the fuck.
asciilifeform: in usa?!
mircea_popescu: dude, that is a matter of MY choice.
mircea_popescu: if i felt like buying in flordia, i'd have mansions in florida.
mircea_popescu: and if i felt like doing a phd with whoevere the fuck, i'd have that, also.
asciilifeform: this from 'won't go to usa without an army' mircea_popescu
mircea_popescu: it wasn't "usa won't take me without an army", asciilifeform .
asciilifeform: you can represent this as a choice, but it is disingenuous and i gotta go change gas mask canister
mircea_popescu: you can't be fucking serious ?!
mircea_popescu: let me point out that a) i visited, when i felt like ; b) they gave me a 10 year visa back in 2000. i was one of the i dunno, maybe dozen romanians with one, at the time ? c) they fucking held the embassy open while my driver was going 100 on the wrong way in bucharest because i met some friends and got to drinking and we lost track of time and we were late. eventually got a police escort to do it under color of law at least,
mircea_popescu: salvage some statal dignity for the state.
asciilifeform: that was before bitcoin, neh
mircea_popescu: so ?
mircea_popescu: dude, bitcoin is a life changing event for everyone else.
mircea_popescu: i was still mp before bitcoin, just a) you had no way to summon the interest and b) i had no interest to you know, maintain an irc connection like the link with the chest of the covenant.
asciilifeform: incidentally plenty of ro folx in usa. asciilifeform met them for first time, there !
mircea_popescu: in fact, my interest in computers at the time was comparable with your interest in machine guns today. a little bit of history and occasionally maybe have one in the house.
asciilifeform: that's healthy
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform yes but usually on work visas / no visas / 6 months tourist visas etc.
asciilifeform: other thing - going to usa isn't hard; even visa isn't hard ; ~anyone can buy 'green card' for half a mil $ or what was it.
asciilifeform: except for mircea_popescu -- him, they would invite in for free! for life-long residence, lol
asciilifeform: problem is getting ~out~ of usa, not in.
mircea_popescu: well apparently by your theory not anyone with half a mil.
asciilifeform: http://btcbase.org/log/2017-05-10#1654291 << example. v. bout had considerably moar than half mil. it bought him 25 yr visa in usa.☝︎
a111: Logged on 2017-05-10 19:34 asciilifeform: https://archive.is/MQCwF << related. famous d00d who was abducted and sits in american prison for -- alleged -- 'intent'
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform well, chomski is getting out of usa about as much as gromyko
phf`: i suspect americans know of chomsky because he's got a funny name. like zizhek or solzhenitcin. if you can pronounce it correctly you're probably also into opera and appreciating wine
mircea_popescu: phf` this is true ; but the way he got there was through saying all sorts of weird/taboo things over 30 or so years.
mircea_popescu: now, obviously any bureaucracy aka club of the intellectually lazy will secrete insulating cocoon around such a fellow, in the shape of "oh, he's the delegated weirdsayer".
mircea_popescu: any "good family" girl in her 20s knows so much, to preciously pretend like "oh, uncle joe, he's always ~so~ controversial". which makes me take the cane in hand and leave her some memories.
mircea_popescu: to the outrage of the old bitties. "oh noe, susanna! he beat her! but she's so smart and cultivated and independent and o noes"
mircea_popescu: doh.
mircea_popescu: now, to sum this up -- it's not that i'm a huge chomski fan or anything ; but it is that if the scaffolding were build up in stanford square and the guillotine ready, i'd have serious problem signing off on chomski ; and some obscure dudes in the sciences depts.
mircea_popescu: a la brin say.
phf`: i appreciate chomsky, he gave me a useful analytical tool of considering social and economic dynamic systems in terms of dependency graphs (which doesn't necessarily preclude lizard hitler, but allows for wider range of topologies that includes lizard hitler along all others)
phf`: i think that my initial dissatisfaction with socialism was partially due to chomsky: a flat graph of equal weights with nodes all alike
phf`: with "manufacturing consent" being one of the implications
mircea_popescu: it is not directly evident that chomski is in any meaningful sense socialist. ideologically, intellectually, how'd you like it.
mircea_popescu: he's, basically, a jew.
mircea_popescu: the equivalent'd be to propose i'm vulgar because hey, i do the whole "damn... well, basically they fuck, but it was absolutely splendid in verse" schtick so therefore. except the intelligent can't actually be vulgar ; or for that matter socialist.
mircea_popescu: (the two aren't even distinct. to belong to the lower classes aesthetically or intellectually, what the fuck's the difference.)
asciilifeform: actually asciilifeform was at one time quite fond of chomsky
mircea_popescu: what soured it ?
asciilifeform: but asciilifeform was also fond of zhirinovsky, and of limonov, et al
mircea_popescu: well, what's the alternative, "of a good man - i am fond twice, of a bad man - not even once" ?
asciilifeform: and to be fair i have nothing with which to counter mircea_popescu's 'he's the real deal, but they built an immunological cocoon around'im' hypothesis.
mircea_popescu: gotta be fond till learn better.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform real deal of what though ?
asciilifeform: dunno what to call it -- honest intellectuals ?
mircea_popescu: i mean, consider -- the nazis did not think so much of the various romanian/ukrainian/polish courts. and their agitprop did say they you know, lure german girls there to fuck!!11
mircea_popescu: can you see ancient rabbi fucking german 12 yo even were she willing ?
mircea_popescu: seems to me he's ~ a modernist reflection of the pre ww2 court system. blaming him for having a postwar reinterpretation of a rabbiniucal court seems rather strange.

asciilifeform: 'Conexant's MicTray64.exe is installed with the Conexant audio driver package and registered as a Microsoft Scheduled Task to run after each user login. The program monitors all keystrokes made by the user to capture and react to functions such as microphone mute/unmute keys/hotkeys. Monitoring of keystrokes is added by implementing a low-level keyboard input hook [1] function that is installed by calling SetwindowsHookEx
asciilifeform: (). In addition to the handling of hotkey/function key strokes, all key-scancode information [2] is written into a logfile in a world-readable path (C:\Users\Public\MicTray.log)...'
asciilifeform: trinque: i'm particularly curious re how you trimmed modules. many crapolade modules don't give any obvious indication that they are useless, there is no mechanism for generating a list of 'THESE we actually need, because of the installed iron, and these -- not'
trinque: only modules I'm even going to have it build in the first place are those involving block devices, network cards (eth), usb controllers
trinque: then afaik those do not load absent the hardware
trinque: folks want more modules, kernel source shall be sitting right there after the thing's booted
asciilifeform: plenty of 'meta' modules (i.e. not iron-specific) without which it is questionable that you have a usable box. for instance, TUN.
asciilifeform: ( needed by iptables )
trinque: perhaps. you see firewalling as superior to shipping with "nothing but ssh shall be listening, and if you change this, caveat luser" ?
trinque: at any rate totally willing to hear a list of modules you see everyone should have.
asciilifeform: i see box where i can't ban ip as ~useless.
asciilifeform: problem ?
asciilifeform: my contention is that this functionality should never have been modularized / seen as optional.
mod6: http://btcbase.org/log/2017-05-11#1654561 << i like it. pete_dushenski, thoughts?☝︎
a111: Logged on 2017-05-11 17:27 asciilifeform: incidentally this'd be a good adjunct to pete_dushenski et al's 'peers' patch : see FROM WHOM a fresh node got each block.
trinque: reasonable. what else?
trinque: what I'd oppose is say, "and what if folks want to use it as a router, or NAS, or hair-net"
trinque: well fuck, learn what you need and go recompile kernel
trinque: iirc the main challenge with gentoo for folks has been getting to that first boot
trinque: I still expect them to do something themselves after first boot
danielpbarron: i got my first booted on first try yesterday
trinque: this thing shits down a userland fs, kernel, lilo, and so long / thanks for teh fish
danielpbarron: now the same machine won't emerge sys-devel/gdb ... but it runs eulora! without window manager!
asciilifeform: trinque: on some boxes, 'first boot' is trivial. on others, not. for instance, my 3ware raid boxen won't load even 1 block after boot loader without the correct mod.
trinque: this was why "apu2" as standard example box
asciilifeform: ( there isn't, i will add, a 'lowest common denominator' solution for those. )
trinque: sadly now I find the debugger port I saw on it doesn't do dick.
trinque: but this may not be a problem for noobs, worth arguing
trinque: apu2 will sit down a node, run their weechat or w/e
asciilifeform: trinque: apu2 will run a node. so would a slightly cheaper intel box, and with - turns out - same amount of 'nsa inside'.
trinque: this is superior imho to Framedragger's hosted idea
trinque: asciilifeform: sure, but you don't get the "this particular gentoo recipe SHALL WORK" without *some* standard box
asciilifeform: apu1 was the imho interesting box -- the first, afaik, and only truly usable workstation x64 with PUBLISHED mobo schematics
asciilifeform: but it is not long for this world. i looked yesterday, it is still offered for sale, but who knows for how long.
trinque: worthwhile I think to define a noob-box of some standard which can be yet purchased.
asciilifeform: 'gizmo2' is a slightly moar 'human' box, it has hdmi port even
asciilifeform: and presoldered sage header. (doesn't come with a sage box, however, unlike 'gizmo1')
asciilifeform: otherwise identical chipset, and same one as apu1
asciilifeform: also comes with schematics.
asciilifeform: but only 1G of ram.
trinque has the gizmo and sage sitting here too
asciilifeform: so i hesitate to say 'workstation'.
trinque: thing is, this recipe shall work provided a particular kernel config for particular box
asciilifeform: theoretically if you could source the chipset, you could have an equivalent box made, but with dimm slots
trinque: but I don't want to overcomplicate things or this will be another round of "gentoo does not work"
asciilifeform: that'd be something.
trinque: worthwhile to at least get folks carting around their own copy of various distfiles eh? get them off the debian apt servers and so on.
trinque: ^ main point of the thing, script shall shit down distfiles
trinque: and not grab from the net
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform> i see box where i can't ban ip as ~useless << why the heck.
mircea_popescu: trinque> iirc the main challenge with gentoo for folks has been getting to that first boot << nah, getting it to correctly use video without taking more in babysitting timevalue than the box cost in the first place. which means < 1 hr.
trinque: same method would apply, but since my own needs begin with headless boxen, started there.
asciilifeform: video works either immediately (pre-obummer cards, approximately) or never (i count 'with closed blob driver package' as == 'never')
trinque: could build all video related modules, then reboot, modprobe them all, cd /usr/src/linux && make localyesconfig/localmodconfig
mircea_popescu: yeah.
mircea_popescu: still, apu1 with pre-checked gentoo install as a commodity router/webserver is sound approach.
asciilifeform quite fond of those things. THREE (!) GBe nics.
asciilifeform: plus a proper (rs232 signal level) serial port.
asciilifeform: and this in a box the size of, approx, vhs tape.
mod6: lel
mircea_popescu: maybe we should give trinque shares, box the apu1, sell TMSR router/webserver/mailserver
asciilifeform: main weakness of apu1 is that it is approx. the pogo
asciilifeform: single-source item with dwindling supply.
mircea_popescu: worked ok for those dorks, recall, the guy didn't wanna talk to us ?
asciilifeform: which one?
mircea_popescu: soldered a raspi inside a pizza carton, sold as "nofucks" or somesuch
asciilifeform: not an example to be imitated, imho.
mircea_popescu: why not ?
asciilifeform: asciilifeform will never be able to in good conscience sign off on the extant GB NICs as auditable items.
mircea_popescu: the apu's ?
asciilifeform: such as.
mircea_popescu: why not ?
asciilifeform: they won't even warn up without $mysteryblob.
asciilifeform: *warm
asciilifeform: !#s realtek
a111: 32 results for "realtek", http://btcbase.org/log-search?q=realtek
mircea_popescu: so then what did you like about apu1 in the first place ?
asciilifeform: the cpu
asciilifeform: and the fact that the mb schematic was actually published ( this is unspeakably untypical )
mircea_popescu: i see/
asciilifeform: plus the working sage plug.
mircea_popescu: so then, main weakness of apu is that it is useless for networking.
mircea_popescu: not that considerations about supplyu chain.
asciilifeform: ( there are 3 known boards with these, at least considering only ones that you can actually BUY : apu1; gizmo1; and gizmo2 . afaik . )
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: by same token ALL known GBe nics are just as useless, yes
asciilifeform: but separate issue is that amd discontinued the sage-able G-series cpu.
asciilifeform: a certain qty of them -- remains in stock, in various places.
asciilifeform: after that -- fin.
trinque: dunno that one's weechat box *ought* to have any expectation of security/privacy
trinque: not like I keep my keys on mine.
trinque: it's less a bedroom and more pissing off the balcony
asciilifeform: trinque: by that token, can just buy intel's single chip toy box etc
mircea_popescu: but by this reasoning just run windows on it.
asciilifeform: ^
trinque: I don't see how that follows.
asciilifeform: the value of apu1, or gizmo, etc is not 'cheap node box'
asciilifeform: it DOESN'T win on that score
mircea_popescu: if the idea is "this stove is not intended to work as a gun" then you can't justify buying lens clearing fluid for the stove's scope.
asciilifeform: costs considerably more, and often hard to get ( the swiss d00dz make'em in batches, i had to wait ~month for mine back when i got it ) than konsoomer crud
trinque: the reason we have *nothing* on this front is the conversation goes "there are no nics"
trinque: yes, well known by now.
trinque: and also other things
mircea_popescu: yeah, the nic issue gotta be addressed already.
asciilifeform: trinque: one nice thing is that the apu1 had 3 pci-m holes. so if a proper nic existed, you could potentially install it.
mircea_popescu: honestly i'd feel happier with random hp box behind proper nic than with special-gentoo-special-raspberypi with rotm realtek/whatever
trinque: apu2 has 3 also
asciilifeform: the unfortunate bit is that 1) afaik it does not exist . 2) the idiot pc architecture gives your nic - regardless of who made it -- access to ALL OF RAM
asciilifeform: trinque: right. apu2 has a fritzed cpu however.
asciilifeform: which makes firmware dev problematic.
asciilifeform: ( how the hell did anyone even port coreboot to apu2 ?? )
mircea_popescu: so tmsr computing wishlist goes a) ram insulating motherboard ; b) fully open nic to fuckgoats standards.
trinque: I dunno what strategic sense it makes to as yet have no mechanical way to stamp out a full trb node
trinque: and have all the excited teenagers stick them everywhere
trinque: meanwhile yes fixing computing still.
asciilifeform: ditch the 'insulators'. asciilifeform asks for 1 thing and 1 thing only hardwarewise -- massive open fpga, coupled to dram slots.
asciilifeform: that's it.
mircea_popescu: meh.
asciilifeform: no magical whatevers, just basic clay out of which to make the comp.
mircea_popescu: no, have motherboard design where the "dma" is a specified bank, and the cpu ram is a different bank ; and let it call whichever it specifically wants.
trinque: and what of teenagers being expendable and this being a vastly undertapped resource?
trinque: this is not asciilifeform's firmware dev env
asciilifeform: how to architect fpga box is separate conversation, and iirc mircea_popescu had a pretty good handle on it.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform that is not this conversation.
trinque: what do they use it on, running weed around and whatnot
asciilifeform: but basic idea -- nothing other than fpga machine conforms to 'auditable without electron microscope' and 'specificity of diddling'.
asciilifeform: and yes, this was different thread.
asciilifeform: but relates, because 'make isolating nic for x86' is not a solvable problem, it is a gabriel_laddelism -- for one thing, such a device is already available, it is called usb nic. but is hog-slow, for fundamental reasons (polled i/o)
mircea_popescu: hardly. what exactly do you even want to "ban ips for" on your realtek nic asciilifeform ?
asciilifeform: that's an ip stack knob, not nic knob
trinque: attacker cannot change IPs ?
trinque: also wtf let somebody's n00b box get attacked
mircea_popescu: ...
asciilifeform: trinque: 'ban ip' in context referred to 'ban port', 'reject dns', or whatever other machinations.
mircea_popescu: nic will say whatever ip it fuckinfg feels like saying that day
asciilifeform: imho basic feature of ip stack.
asciilifeform: not really pertinent to hardware thread imho.
trinque: if these are retarded let teh youf mark the idiocy with their bodies
trinque: wasn't hardware thread. got dragged there because reasons.
trinque: army of excitable young dickheads are meanwhile all farting around winking at us from their android devices or whatever
mircea_popescu: trinque i don't think they'll ever do something useful though, for the reason that it's useful. somehow the drones intuit and avoid any non-drony un-pointless meaningful activity.
mircea_popescu: you know, "Goes against their principles".
asciilifeform: trinque: such marvels as, e.g., 'web20', javascript, etc. came directly from allowing teenaged scum to have whatever involvement in design aside from cleaning the shop at closing time each day.
asciilifeform: their approach to engineering is 'junkyard wars' -- 'look mother, what i made from dead possum and string!'
mircea_popescu: for me personally, the "young soviet" personified by cptn breznev was rather instructive.
trinque: I am not yet this cynical, if only for my own dick-pulling.
mircea_popescu: this is probably a good thing.
mircea_popescu: anyway, as far as "headless whatever" item is concerned trinque it seems to me something you can rack is a better choice than something you gotta keep around the house / out of dog's mouth etc.
asciilifeform: apu1 racks, i even have the mechanical bracket somewhere
mircea_popescu: ah then cool
asciilifeform: you can fit iirc 8 of'em in a traditional 1u
asciilifeform: it uses conductive, rather than convective, cooling, however, could be problem in a hot dc
mircea_popescu: miught make a fine offering for the eventual tmsr isp, just as soon as anyone gets off their intellectual arse and actually starts living life instead of dreaming it.
mircea_popescu: !!up gabriel_laddel_p
deedbot: gabriel_laddel_p voiced for 30 minutes.
gabriel_laddel_p: asciilifeform: this pattern where hardware is named in-channel and then you comment on it is highly inefficient. How much would you charge (USD, via paypal/venmo) to iterate through a-zA-Z, 0-9, #\! thru #\) and name each and every item of computer hardware related to it you possibly can + give a review. Then to encrypt the resulting text file to a
gabriel_laddel_p: ll lords + myself?
mircea_popescu: o.O
asciilifeform: gabriel_laddel_p: this would take a rather long time. and i'm not convinced that the result would be very interesting
mircea_popescu: alf's encyclopedia of hardware ?
gabriel_laddel_p: mircea_popescu: yep.
asciilifeform: 'hmm was that 1 matrox in '98 any good? or was it a hercules..'
gabriel_laddel_p: asciilifeform: I don't care about how long, just want the price
mircea_popescu: it might provide fine support for alf to transition from the phase of "i can't write a trilema" to the phase of "there it is, read it
mircea_popescu: can't lay out silk for an umbrella without the spikes or how it went.
asciilifeform: 'i forgot my hat on top of mt everest, how much would you suppose you must charge, asciilifeform , to fetch it for me ??'
gabriel_laddel_p: I just turned up an extra $100 and will happily venmo it to you today if you JUST DO IT.
asciilifeform: gabriel_laddel_p: you're missing a couplea zeros
mircea_popescu: this guy is adorable.
trinque lols mightily
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform well intent counts yes ?
gabriel_laddel_p: asciilifeform: how many, exactly?
mircea_popescu: !#d 8 million
mircea_popescu: that'll become alf's own "500." fast and furious dood moment.
asciilifeform: the odd thing is that these are ~all in the l0gz
asciilifeform: for phreeeee
gabriel_laddel_p: asciilifeform: I have a partial list of hardware related items from the logs.
gabriel_laddel_p: asciilifeform: but I want the _complete_ list.
trinque: complete list of "this also don't use"
trinque: ?
gabriel_laddel_p: trinque: no, a complete list of hardware items + review
mircea_popescu: "eight." "eight what ?" "eight million. when i was a kid i figured you had to get eight million together to be considered a legitimate rich guy. so i got busy".
gabriel_laddel_p: I can't imagine this would take more than 5 days + a bunch of coffee.
gabriel_laddel_p: and half days at that
mircea_popescu: hey, if that were true...
trinque: you (snort) you gotta go big asciilifeform, just make the (pounds desk) the list of all hardware.
asciilifeform: lol
asciilifeform: 'no one will believe, but i find the fixation with ancient iron, counterproductive', said asciilifeform from old x60 lappy
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform when you're done with that you can cycle through the realtek until you document it and reverse the blob, we'll be good.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: 100% of what can be reversed without electron microscopy, is already public
asciilifeform: ( re realtek )
asciilifeform: iirc i even linked to datashit here.
trinque: your coffee must be shit.
mircea_popescu: is there an english equivalent to the ancient romanian "an idiot throws a stone overboard and ten philosophers can't fish it back out" ?

mircea_popescu: is it related to the "ven" bs nefario was pushing at his stallman-attended scamference ?
asciilifeform: how the living fuck does one reverse ciphered blob of instructions for unknown instruction set, consisting mainly of writes to registers of unknown purpose (mostly dealing in such things as setting PLL frequency etc) without physical peek ?

mod6: eek. u no like btc?
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform peek, peek.

asciilifeform: one 'asks' by dissolving package in nitric acid and then micrograph.
asciilifeform: incidentally iirc phf` had a phriend with access to subj
asciilifeform: what became of this ?
gabriel_laddel_p: I was hanging out with aerospace ppl, one of whom works on computer aircraft software -- gave him the function in question and told him it had a floating point error, asked what it was
gabriel_laddel_p: *consumer aircraft software
gabriel_laddel_p: he said "overflow"
mircea_popescu: sooo ?
gabriel_laddel_p: mircea_popescu: read the article. Or just the smooth surprise part. It isn't an overflow error
gabriel_laddel_p: anyways, just another addition to ascii's "floating point has to die" thread.
asciilifeform: float arithmetic is a 20th c mistake
asciilifeform: burn it .
mircea_popescu: yes, but why is the happenstance that some dood with the right robes made $mistake relevant ?
gabriel_laddel_p: lol c?
asciilifeform: use rationals .
gabriel_laddel_p: mircea_popescu: an addition to the story that "floating point must die": because otherwise intelligent people who have PHDs, write haskell & work on stuff we useveryday end up making less-than-obvious mistakes without realizing it.
gabriel_laddel_p: The article also lists 2 disasters that resulted from floating point errors
gabriel_laddel_p: rocket explosion + failure of a PATRIOT missile to hit its target, resulting in 28 deaths.
mircea_popescu: right. is the subtext that if only you were somehow involved this'd have been averted ?
gabriel_laddel_p: No? But I suppose that is the case, isn't it.
asciilifeform: hey gabriel_laddel_p -- do you know ada ?
gabriel_laddel_p: asciilifeform: nope.
mircea_popescu: here's the thing : the reason you do not see results commensurate with your perceived (and for all anyone knows, correctly perceived) subjective capacity is that you do not provide yourself with proper basis and sufficient time to make it happen.
mircea_popescu: a woman that'd make a great wife STILL HAS TO spend more than a few weeks on one man to achieve that potential.
mircea_popescu: and champion seeds that are plowed under every night won't ever champion anything, next field will raise an economically relevant crop of tubers if left undisturbed.
mircea_popescu: there's a reason alf hates interruptions.

mircea_popescu: anyway, to repurpose an ustardism, "in a world starved of whorish talent, it is hard to lose money hiring sophomores from moscow u."
asciilifeform: presently i'm not convinced that 'baikal' cpu exists -- experience suggests that it's an elbrus, a small handful of physical items for ru army and a large stack of imaginary bezzle cpus which actually turned into swiss gold and florida mansions for various scum instead of into cpu
asciilifeform: but i'd luvv to be proven wrong.
asciilifeform: i suspect that if either baikal or elbrus ~existed~ in commercially relevant qtys, it would handily corner the 'fuck cisco and usg crapolade' market worldwide
asciilifeform: but then again someone could point same type of finger at, e.g., FUCKGOATS
asciilifeform: so i have nfi.
mircea_popescu: no, because fg can be ordered and getgs delivered.
asciilifeform: well yes, i was speaking from pov of folx who encounter for first time

mircea_popescu: aite, ima buy some whatever the shits and not give them to you then!
asciilifeform: if asciilifeform signs and sends this, he will probably have to design the mips box on toilet paper inside bastille, like de sade
mircea_popescu: a, you think ?
mircea_popescu: well, so tone down the parts that concern you, what.
asciilifeform: not that it's necessarily avoidable in long run.
mircea_popescu: not like i'm married to it.
asciilifeform: btw in sharp contrast with china -- where they sent me fresh crystals within 2 (! rather than promised 3!) weeks, with ZERO prying questions and certainly no nda.
mircea_popescu: in any case, i guarantee you it'll make their day.
mircea_popescu: as you might imagine, "Sales & Business Development" not the most exciting line of work.
asciilifeform: i quite like folx who sell actual product , for cash on barrelhead, without demanding offers of marriage or vows of eternal fealty etc.
mircea_popescu: hey, the russki's are trying to be civilised. absent any signal from you as to what civilisation entails, they end up following the pantsuit ustards.
asciilifeform: ( in asciilifeform's experience, nda in 100% of cases exists to hide screaming incompetence , astronomical prices, stolen material, or often all 3 )
mircea_popescu: you're too focused on what's here evidently a minor add-on.
asciilifeform: also i gotta wonder why anybody (this is re not only baikal but loonson of cn) PAYS FOR 'imagination tech incl' mips license -- when the thing has been out of patent since 1980s
asciilifeform: and is in fact UNDERGRAD project, to implement
mircea_popescu: cuz they work on a comission.
asciilifeform: ( asciilifeform wrote a mips in school and i bet phf also did )
diana_coman: have you considered that they might be simply *copying* IBM and the like 'cause that's "how it's done"? i.e. nda etc
mircea_popescu: the entirety of us economy consists not of principals but of agents. why would anyone hire a full servcie broker to churn their holdings ? because they get paid on commission!
mircea_popescu: diana_coman seems entirely likely the item is onlyt there because in their experience ustards perceive its presence as "professional"-ing.
trinque thought the whole point of the bureaucracy was to provide cover for *not* following teh rules.
mircea_popescu: kinda how the czars (back before the muscovy took over) kept painting selves in byzantine headgear. ENNOBLEMENT!!!
diana_coman: that's quite how I read it too tbh but I admit I have limited experience with this sort of interactions

mircea_popescu: for maximal lulz, they rent the email spam services from same company that does payments for the you know, legitimate & fo realz http://btcbase.org/log/2017-03-08#1623380☝︎
a111: Logged on 2017-03-08 22:29 mircea_popescu: in other lulz : femen, the "ukrainian" organisation is selling shit priced in dollars via 2checkout.com, the columbus ohio us corp.
asciilifeform: lol!!
mircea_popescu: see alf, that's the problem with fuckgoats, that nsa doesn't have an email spam service. THIS GOES AGAINST PRINCIPLES!
asciilifeform: evidently!!111
mircea_popescu: shoulda asked people to sign an nda!!1
mircea_popescu: fucktards.
asciilifeform: betcha it's part of the 'license' deal, even.
asciilifeform: propagates virally.
asciilifeform: ( and same types of idiots had the nerve to whine about 'viral' gpl )
BingoBoingo: <asciilifeform> >> http://wotpaste.cascadianhacker.com/pastes/Ixchs/?raw=true << in other noose !! << You are making game consoles and you do not require them to sign an NDA
phf`: http://btcbase.org/log/2017-05-10#1653984 << so i got a copy, mine had a mechanical looking gash in the spine, had to send it for replacement. otherwise it's not horrible. it's a cheap thermal binding, but the paper is crisp, and the source is TeX so it looks reasonable.☝︎
a111: Logged on 2017-05-10 11:37 shinohai: Nifty phf, I kinda want a copy myself now.
ben_vulpes: heh
ben_vulpes: briefly thought you were talking about ball-girl.
asciilifeform: lol!!
mircea_popescu: bwahah
shinohai: You never know with me. I have a girl here I'd love to stuff a ball-gag into as we speak.
shinohai: I suppose, lacking such instruments, a simple rag and some rope will suffice.
mircea_popescu: splurge and spend the 15 to buy a ball gag. it's one of those items, like cased bullet, that can't really be replaced in the kitchen.
shinohai: I shall! Then when someone knocks and asks "Pardon me, do you happen to have a ball-gag handy?" I can reply with an enthusiastic "Yes!"
mircea_popescu: !!key Avarice`
deedbot: Not registered.
BingoBoingo: shinohai: Don't forget the 9 inch linesman pliers in case you have to take into bondage not a pretty girl
shinohai: nb
BingoBoingo: Good one should have grip to pull toe nails and heft to hammer out teeth
BingoBoingo: Klein and Knipex make adequate tools of this sort
shinohai: I use the ball peen for hammering out teeth.
BingoBoingo: too big, might break jaw. Increases janitorial expenditure
shinohai: I know lots of Mexicans that work cheap, no biggie.
pete_dushenski: mod6, asciilifeform : re : 'from whom' patch : it would definitely be a useful tool for mapping network connectivity.
ben_vulpes: BingoBoingo: first full backyard arugula salad hit my plate yesterday
ben_vulpes: unsurprisingly, the radishes sown in mud away from amended soil taste the best and are the beefiest.
asciilifeform: in other lulz, asciilifeform found out today that gcc 6 (!) exists : https://gcc.gnu.org/gcc-6/changes.html
asciilifeform: check out the 'features'
asciilifeform: e.g., 'Support for a number of older systems and recently unmaintained or untested target ports of GCC has been declared obsolete in GCC 6. Unless there is activity to revive them, the next release of GCC will have their sources permanently removed.'
asciilifeform: https://gcc.gnu.org/ml/gcc/2015-08/msg00101.html << SuperH dropped
asciilifeform: ( why ? presumably Because Not Modern Enough )
asciilifeform: plus bucketful of breaking changes in language ( Because We Can ! )
BingoBoingo: ben_vulpes: Nice. That is indeed a part of the root vegetable paradox. I imagine the best beets are grown in potter's clay
ben_vulpes: we have some beets too, but they're in the good dirt
BingoBoingo: Carrots especially are notorious from coming out of manure and other quality organic muck scarred
ben_vulpes: hm
ben_vulpes: carrots look pretty happy so far
ben_vulpes: girl germinated a batch with ~every method
BingoBoingo: Oh my
asciilifeform: 'Improved std::locale support for DragonFly and FreeBSD, thanks to John Marino and Andreas Tobler.' didjaknow this was needed.
asciilifeform: 'GCC now supports the Intel CPU named Skylake with AVX-512 extensions through -march=skylake-avx512' << all cheer for intel proprietary crapstructions !1111
asciilifeform: 'Support for the IBM z13 processor has been added' << just when i thought perhaps zombie was properly dead & buried
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform gcc is no longer an interesting tool - llvm took over. currently being maintained as "coreboot".
mircea_popescu: expect "project leader" to "identity politics" etc.
asciilifeform: probably happened long ago, near ver 5
pete_dushenski: http://btcbase.org/log/2017-05-08#1653407 << f1 cars are pulling ~12g in the corners these days, consumer auto is rarely >1g lateral before tires break loose.☝︎
a111: Logged on 2017-05-08 17:35 asciilifeform: this was konsoomer auto, not 'formula1'
mircea_popescu: prolly.
asciilifeform: ( i wasn't tuned in tho )
asciilifeform: i confess i dun have much interest in ever using llvm for anything.
shinohai: insane grip pete_dushenski
asciilifeform: ( for 1 thing, no ada in it )
pete_dushenski: shinohai: f1 tires are wider this year! look more like cars of olde (ie 70s)
shinohai drives F1 car with alf's thermonooklear device affixed into pentagon .... "ALLAH SNACKBAR!"
pete_dushenski: lol
shinohai: AT least I died knowing I had grip like a virgin vagina filled with alum.
asciilifeform: 'Support for the g5 and g6 -march=/-mtune= CPU level switches has been deprecated and will be removed in a future GCC release.' << laugh, cry, ben_vulpes et al
pete_dushenski imagines alum-in-v-pipe to be as sharply edged as rain gutters he picked up from orange depot today. winces.
asciilifeform: and didjaevenknow there ~were~ a g6 ?!
asciilifeform: i had nfi
asciilifeform: ( can haz ? where ? )
asciilifeform: on plus side, 'Support for the musl C library was added for the AArch64, ARM, MicroBlaze, MIPS, MIPS64, PowerPC, PowerPC64, SH, i386, x32 and x86_64 targets. It can be selected using the new -mmusl option in case musl is not the default libc. GCC defaults to musl libc if it is built with a target triplet matching the *-linux-musl* pattern.'
asciilifeform: perhaps ^ can be backported to 4.x ?!
asciilifeform puts on list.
pete_dushenski: i'd like to take this opportunity to introduce 'constantine' (37.59.43.190) as an infrastructure trb node. he will be replacing 'laocoon' (62.113.203.216), who will be henceforth relegated to testing duties. cheers!
pete_dushenski: http://thebitcoin.foundation/trusted-nodes.html << mod6 are you handling this list ? if so, please to update :)
mod6: sure thing, pete_dushenski
