mod6: mornin'
phf: i've been to social events at these houses, and they are just glorified mcmansions. i was actually wondering about these mega-houses last time i recently took a trip to Fallingwater. who now among "the wealthy" is building these kaufmann residences that in 100 years time people will want to visit?
phf: oh, i know this area, obama's neighborhood is 5 minutes walking from me, it's all old construction, so not so much a "mega-house" as a large&old dc property (apparently made from real stone!1)
phf: those houses are nifty, because built by sane people until a contractor gets to "renovate" the interior
asciilifeform: phf: i've been inside a bunch of these, but only on embassy expo day
asciilifeform: they feel like houses on home planet ( proper height of ceiling, the correct 100+ y.o. 'old sofa' smell, steam heat, etc )
shinohai lives in 105 yr old house, but revels in the whole "no formaldehyde" smell.

mircea_popescu: in other lulz ~nobody cares about : ucr (universidad de costa rica) is this massively dominant player. apparently it has 3`623 non-tenured, 1`726 tenured faculty. the former are bitchin' that they want "the same salary conditions" as the latter, which is very much representative of latino mental simplicity.
mircea_popescu: but the scandal exposed a coupla lulz, such as that the ucr spends 80% (!!!) of its income to pay salaries, and that income is ~500mn a year.
asciilifeform: usd?
mircea_popescu: ya
asciilifeform: i had nfi there were 500mn usd in all of cr, not merely the obscure ( i had nfi it existed...) ucr
asciilifeform: from where comes the dough ? usg parked a printing press down there ?
mircea_popescu: costa rica is a rich country dood. above ohio below arizona or somesuch.
mircea_popescu: you do realise that at least half the 50 us states are below average, in the sense most countries actually are doing better, yes ?
asciilifeform: half of'em are nearly empty, but for corn field and rocket base
asciilifeform: so not high bar.
asciilifeform: ( ever look at usa from airplane ..? )
mircea_popescu: so you know, made 50bn gdp, bout same as panama, 4x nicaragua. which is how come all the chicks in strip joints are nigaraguaneans.
asciilifeform: incidentally -- what does cr export ?
mircea_popescu: vacations
asciilifeform: aaah so it's one of those 'rich because that's where money goes to sit on the beach' places.
mircea_popescu: yup. pretty much entirely it.
asciilifeform: still doesn't explain why university. who attends it ? anyone publishes in it ? how does the setup work.
mircea_popescu: "highest level of foreign direct investment per capita of latin maerica", ie, a fine definition of whether you're poor or not is whether you have a gf here holding down a fort.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform sure, they publish the usual crud. it's where you pick up the girlies, mostly.
asciilifeform: sounds like 50s cuba

mircea_popescu: hey, intel build a plant.

asciilifeform: plant moved to asia. what's left is jerbsprogram
asciilifeform: ( why it remains - i have nfi; perhaps intel exec gurlz to holdthefort etc )
mircea_popescu: prolly.
mircea_popescu: lol elon musk quit "forum on job creation" because hey, paris accord was major "job creation" wtf.
mircea_popescu: anyway, back to cr, it's kinda funny. i recall their currency being reasonably stable, but since i've been here it shed about 10% against the dollar. so the natl bank is all "wtf is wrong with you people", put 1bn of the reserve on the market, etc.
mircea_popescu: this re whole "kinda clueless treefolk"
asciilifeform: i'd suppose that mircea_popescu is there for the good weather, not for the company of tree-dwellers
mircea_popescu: why not ? troglodyte female muchly preferable to ustarded female.
mircea_popescu: young people are going to be stupid, this is a given. might as well deal with the naive than with the millitantly idiotic.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: didja ever determine why in cr 'naive', but in ar 'militant idiotic' ? is the idiocy-ray emitter in antarctica, or wat
mircea_popescu: ah, peronismo.
mircea_popescu: generally speaking, homebrew nationalism is ~worst thing that can happen to a country. way worse than foreign invasion.
asciilifeform: lol, ukrs
asciilifeform: aha
mircea_popescu: it's what distinguishes say reddit and to some degree twitter from the average fucktard forum / website. dudes on reddit actually developed some sort of idiotarian self-identity on top of everything else.
mircea_popescu: so they go around you know, "we did it argentina!! sun rise!!!" and inqualifiably dumb shit like that.
asciilifeform: do perons appear in empty vacuum tho
asciilifeform: picture if the ameritourism were to evaporate in cr. how long before it peronizes.
mircea_popescu: dude's epitaph is this : he once claimed that when he took power there were all these sacks of gold and dollars and wealth, "hanging around, clearly being misused -- cuz not used to levantar el pueblo" etc.
mircea_popescu: THAT is how they appear, when there's too much wealth and too little noose for the poor to go with it.
mircea_popescu: exactly how it appeared in moscow, too. had the tzar fucking hung twenty million uppity bitches, starting with half of georgia, there'd have not been any problem.
asciilifeform: ottomans also
mircea_popescu: everyone.
asciilifeform: one tricky bit, afaik, is that the proverbial sacks of gold do not 'levantar el pueblo' under any circumstances at all; instead they immediately grow legs and walk, walk away to a faraway place and never again seen
mircea_popescu: and it's not like they're not asking for it and everything.
mircea_popescu: recall that time when they stomped each other on some field ?
asciilifeform: the ecuador war ?
mircea_popescu would have ordered ALL the participants hung. what did czar do ? apologize ?
mircea_popescu: you don't fucking apologize to the cow herd for IT having stampeded.
mircea_popescu: next fucking time, stay home, or if you come FUCKING BEHAVE
mircea_popescu: filthy bitchez...
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform the khodynka field poorfucktardfest.
mircea_popescu: anyway, point being they're asking, and if you dun answer then dun be surprised.
asciilifeform: when you have stampedes in the capital, you ( ruler/civ1player ) Have A Problem ; just as d00d with tumour that is large enough to be palpable, has problem
mircea_popescu: unlike tumour, this problem is very approachable.
mircea_popescu: sure, once you have 500`000 dead bodies in a pile it's time to build a new church and beg forgiveness for having let things get this far.
mircea_popescu: but nicholas was just ascending, it wasn't his fucking fault alexander was a faggot.
asciilifeform: unless yer rounding up ~defenseless gypos etc , 500kilocorpse is called 'civil war' and it doesn't come with a guarantee of win
mircea_popescu: 500k idiots who stampede themselves to death vs hussar regiments ? really ?
mircea_popescu: i guess i'm beheading even more people.
asciilifeform: i suppose mircea_popescu is posting from parallel universe where 1917 didn't happen
mircea_popescu: this was 1896. the REASON 1917 happened was that nicholas was a fucktard in 1896.
asciilifeform: i.e. followed the pitchforks-vs-landsknecht dynamic pictured above
mircea_popescu: had he fired all available artillery into the crowd, there'd have been no fucking bs.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform no, exactly opposite.
mircea_popescu: the populace had to have a clear statement of its fault, and punishment comensurate. this is what government is.
mircea_popescu: what he did was, he failed to punish them for their misbehaviour, from which they concluded, quite in the infantile manner of subhumans, that tyhey had done nothing wrong
asciilifeform: incidentally ivan iv did try this exact thing
mircea_popescu: and that there's some room for them to "make judgements" and whatnot.
asciilifeform: ( spoiler : didn't work )
mircea_popescu: and i don't seem to recall his problems with the fucking reds.
mircea_popescu: worked fine, what are you talking about.
asciilifeform: from this pov.. worked.
mircea_popescu: well that's the pov.
asciilifeform: the larger point also good one -- any problem ( short of perhaps asteroid ) starts small and spends good chunk of its life cycle in curable phase
mircea_popescu: and the need for the cure is constantly signalled, and the cure always is exactly that : round them all up and hang them.
mircea_popescu: nor is this only the problem of governance. for years before sham ustardian marriage ends in divorce wife begs for some checks, which husband doesn't provide because idiot ; but then really has no one else to blame.
mircea_popescu: before growing up to be stupid, kids spend their childhood begging for some guidance. and so following.
mircea_popescu: fucking "demonstrations" and whatnot. what are they "demonstrating" ? that "oh look, you're not going to drive the tanks through us!11 like you fucking should!!111 awell, i guess you're not fit to rule then huh."

mircea_popescu: which is the ~only criteria of respectability.
asciilifeform: how 'respectable' when most of'em are still l1/l2 of su wot.
mircea_popescu: this per se isn't a problem.

asciilifeform: they eat carrion, yes.
mircea_popescu: but of course they'd be within su wot. that's how these light states work.

mircea_popescu: lemme guess, nietzsche ?
ben_vulpes: that's the quote, yes
ben_vulpes: "perhaps outlawing masculinity is a bad idea?"
mircea_popescu: o i know, let's plead like a little bitch, that'll do something.
mircea_popescu: how about "man ain't interested in your dumb bitch hut, starve."
mircea_popescu: "We are killing masculinity. Maleness in all its forms has been deprecated as an outdated bit of software. Something to be rewritten for the modern world."
mircea_popescu: self important little cunts. what the everloving fuck, "look at me, i live without a roof, WE HAVE DEPRECATED ROOVES!!11"
mircea_popescu: hurr.
asciilifeform: for some reason atlases only ever shrug in bad megab00x by ru emigre chix, tho. and not in actual reality.
mircea_popescu: maleness in its you know, male form is doing fucking fine, and doesn'tr care about the stupid tea party.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform the tiresome faggots who keedp going "oh mom, i too could be an atlas couldn't i ? i'm tall enough ?" are no fucking object of this discussion.

mod6: got this FG #2 hooked up to the scope
asciilifeform: mod6: hm?
asciilifeform: ( you want logic analyzer, or at the very minumum : storage scope , for this , not much periodic wave to be had on FG )
mod6: got the probe setup on the out pin. been waiting to try this. just didn't incause I fuck it up.
mod6: *in case
asciilifeform: mod6: put the trigger on clock (CLK) pin
asciilifeform: all signals on the board (other than the 2 coming from rngs ) are in that clock domain
mod6: this scope has a usb port, so i dropped in the USB to see if I can get the output saved on there. gotta rtfm i think
asciilifeform: what do you hope to see on the scope, mod6 ? thing puts out 115200,8,1,noparity
asciilifeform: ( not, as you can already guess, contiguously -- but when there's a byte ready )
mod6: im more... using it as a vehicle to learn how to scope.
asciilifeform: aah
mod6: aha, clock has basic predictible pattern.
mod6: 'out' is pretty chatty too though
asciilifeform: try displaying clock and output in parallel
mod6: i do have two probes...
mod6 tries
asciilifeform: ( output has peridic component !! -- the start/stop bits )
asciilifeform: they're why a misbauded FG is nogood as an rng
mircea_popescu: and in other artificial inteligence, https://archive.is/0IIyG
mod6: oh huh!
mod6: i gotta take a pic here i think, but yah, two distinct different wave patterns.
mod6: @20 ns
mod6: http://www.mod6.net/fg/fg-test/20170602_142155.jpg http://www.mod6.net/fg/fg-test/20170602_142450.jpg
mod6: sorry for the yuuuge
mircea_popescu: i dunno wtf this is.
mod6: yellow (channel 1) is the clk output; blue (channel 2) is the 'out' output from the fg
mod6: mircea_popescu: just kinda takin a look at things, nothing in particular. educational.
mircea_popescu: so the clock transitions ~0.1ms ; but the output dun seem rightr
mircea_popescu: wtf values are those.
asciilifeform: mod6: your ground is loose
mod6: haha, i dun think im doin it right.
asciilifeform: you're seeing mains hum !!
asciilifeform: ( there are no sinusoids to be had on that board )
mod6: ah.
asciilifeform: to what did you attach the black crocodile ?
mod6: nada. wasn't sure on that.
asciilifeform: this might be kindergarten item , but :
asciilifeform: a voltage is a potential ~difference~
mod6: yah, im extreme n00b at this
asciilifeform: it exists ~between~ two objects
asciilifeform: mod6: you will notice that scope bnc connector has two conductors
asciilifeform: center connects to tip of probe
asciilifeform: shield - to the gnd clip
asciilifeform: mod6: you wouln't leave 1 lead off voltmeter hanging in the air, wouldja? same idea.
mod6: aha, ok
jurov: S.QNTR distributed
mod6: ok, well. huh.
mod6: i've since, just wanna look at the clock, see if i've got it hooked up right. i've got probe on channel one connected to 'clk' pin. probe's crock is attached to a lead coming off 'gnd' pin.
mod6: it's not a square wave tho.
asciilifeform: mod6: post pic ?
mod6: sure
asciilifeform: ( even a very clean clock, if frequency is >1MHz or so, will not look like 'ideal' square when viewed through clip probes on scope. you will see 'ringing' )
mod6: http://www.mod6.net/fg/fg-test/20170602_150946.jpg
asciilifeform: yeah, that'd be it
mod6: ya?!
mod6: decent! thanks, ima see if i can get the 'out' in there too
asciilifeform: get rid of the massive cable / multiple clip-to-cable joints
asciilifeform: if you want to see something closer to the actual signal
asciilifeform: at 14.7456MHz , your cable is a substantial parasitic capacitor ( and inductor )
mod6: yeah, i rigged that up, but im having trouble with the space. i suppose i could elminate the USB-TTL for power and just use 5v from Dr. Meter tho right?
asciilifeform: the effect in your picture is not the power supply's fault
asciilifeform: but very much a physical limitation of your measurement setup. see above.
mod6: gotcha
asciilifeform: another tip : rng shield is an ok place for the gnd clip
asciilifeform: ( it is tied to the ground plane )
mod6: ooh
mod6: ok
asciilifeform: ( you do NOT want a long wire between ground clip and the circuit )
asciilifeform: moar wisdom : the nose of the scope probe, comes off
asciilifeform: you can then use it as a manual sharp-needle-poke
mod6: ah, gotcha
mod6: ok, here's one with both clk & out; http://www.mod6.net/fg/fg-test/20170602_153853.jpg
mod6: i used the sheilds for gnd this time, feel like im learning a bit, thanks for the help.
asciilifeform: that looks atrocious
asciilifeform: is the blue input ac-coupled by any chance ?
mod6: i don't know
mod6: does the clk still look ok?
asciilifeform: it is still very loudly mutilated by your cabling but this is not avoidable (without specially made cable)
asciilifeform: it's why you'll find coax jacks on high-end fpga boards
mod6: these probes have this little switch on them. "1x -> 10x"
mod6: they were set to 10x, gonna see if turning 'em down to 1 shows me anything different
asciilifeform: if you set '10x' that turns on voltage divider
mod6: ok makes sense to what im seeing on the screen
asciilifeform: ftr mod6 has much spiffier scope than asciilifeform
asciilifeform: ( it's 1 or 2 models after )
mod6: lol, i simply have no clue what im doing :D
asciilifeform: mod6: after you have the basics , everything else will make sense.
mod6: so i did one more while I was at it: http://www.mod6.net/fg/fg-test/20170602_155427.jpg
mod6: clk looks better to me in that case, like I somehow have it dialed in more properly.
mod6: not sure about the 'out'
mod6: wb
asciilifeform: that looks horrid, mod6
asciilifeform: one or more of your grounds is loose.
mod6: lol, ok
mircea_popescu: looks like maybe it's summed up over a sampling interval or such ?
mircea_popescu: do you have a function like that activated ?
mod6: totally could be.
mod6: im just uber n00b on this thing. gotta rtfm.
asciilifeform: mod6: play with the test clip on the scope ( the thing immediately to the right of ch4 bnc jack ) first
asciilifeform: see if you can get it to display the wave pictured in the manual.
mod6: sure, ok. it does seem, that when i clip on to that with the crock, and the probe, it gets square just fine. i read that means that it's "compensated" correctly.
asciilifeform: it's what, 1kHz tho.
asciilifeform: mod6: another tip : when playing with fg & scope/logic analyzer, it is convenient to turn it upside-down and sink the 'teeth' into a breadboard
asciilifeform: then put wires in the breadboard, attached to scope
mod6: ah, ok. can do, i did get a breadboard.

asciilifeform: holy fuq pete_dushenski , i suppose you've never taken a heat sink off before ?!
asciilifeform: scrape that shit off, put in 'arctic silver' or whatever yer favourite 'toothpaste'
asciilifeform: then screw heat sink back on.

erlehmann: phf i still use the neo2 keyboard layout. it has several advantages over qwert(y|z) for me: 1. less strain put on my hands 2. useless caps lock replaced with another mod key 3. built-in layers for useful unicode 4. compose in the base layout
