mike_c: Birdman ^
Birdman: `much appreciation
Birdman: mike_c so it went through all these hands and says it processed ~30k of them, but what am i actually looking at here? the hands it lists in the prompt are the ones that the discrepency is found?
mike_c: the output is bad hands. it's comma separated - filename,hand#,player_that_is_not_in_summary
asciilifeform: !#s bannon
a111: 30 results for "bannon", http://btcbase.org/log-search?q=bannon
mircea_popescu: did he get shot ?
mike_c: !!up Birdman

mike_c: working for you? anything you want changed?
asciilifeform: 'After his ouster from the West Wing on Friday, ex-White House chief strategist Steve Bannon declared the Trump presidency that his brand of populist, right-wing conservatives helped make a reality is "over."'
mircea_popescu: aww
Birdman: so i went through and deleted all the tournaments cause those are not relevant, and i got seemingly different results. I think maybe its displaying less than all the hands it has found? i only saw four cash game hands the first time, deleted all the tournaments, and now i see a ton of cash game hands
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: sacked
mircea_popescu: aha. in today's re-runs, http://btcbase.org/log/2017-01-26#1607670 ☝︎
a111: Logged on 2017-01-26 19:29 mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes depends on how good a job bannon does.
Birdman: and if im not mistaken it lists the player who is missing in the summary and will list the same hand twice to show if another player was missing in same hand so that extra fat that could be trimmed but im not asking you to fine tune this or anything lol, thoughts on it maybe not showing all results for lack of space of something?
mircea_popescu: what do you mean lack of space.
mike_c: doubt it. how many hands does it say it processed?
mike_c: and how many did it say before you pulled the tournament files?
asciilifeform: the 1 quasi-earnest d00d -- sacked
Birdman: bit over 26k and before a bit under 30k, also i think this guy's hand history is amazingly fragmented in a ton of spots so im trying to get a more solid chunk of data to run it on
asciilifeform: served his purpose
Birdman: alot of these hands are missing the summary in general
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform aha, old man went in on a ticket of no-compromise, compromised errythang.
asciilifeform: just as was obvious to asciilifeform .
mircea_popescu: mno, what was obvious to asciilifeform was http://btcbase.org/log/2016-06-22#1486759 ☝︎

mircea_popescu: the obvious-to-alf show!
asciilifeform: berkeley: still open. climatola : in businesss. dept of shitcoinade - ditto
asciilifeform: what exactly differs observably from actual clitler reign?

mircea_popescu: aanyway. teh us as mildly interesting as it ever was.
mike_c: seems like it's working to me :) here's without the player names: http://wotpaste.cascadianhacker.com/pastes/LsriU/?raw=true
Birdman: it seems to me that the bug im looking for is most likely to appear in hands processed that aren't sequential as the sequential ones are most likely entirely fragmented and the ones with only one player missing are the ones im most likely looking for
mircea_popescu: lol Birdman 's got a consultancy bidniss almost going ?
Birdman: not sequential, i mean the ones that repeat the hand number
mike_c: um, not following. but you're saying you want to see the ones that are only missing one player?
deedbot: http://trilema.com/2017/fifi-hamburguesas-bimbo/ << Trilema - Fifi, hamburguesas bimbo
Birdman: yeah something like that, trying to get it to filter out the corrupted hands from the hands with the bug im looking for
Birdman: but to be honest its probably good to have the corrupted hands to be able to request them from the server
mike_c: 4,412 of the 5,013 bad hands are only missing one player
Birdman: you only got ~5k bad hands? im getting 25k
mike_c: run the updated version I gave you and tell me all 3 numbers (processed, bad, files)
Birdman: ah ok one moment
Birdman: 262953 / 4914 / 3966 respectively, after i deleted all tournaments from the histories
mike_c: ok, so 4,914 bad hands
Birdman: which i did by searching through with "T1" cause tournaments all start with that and no cash games would
Birdman: yes
mike_c: well, seems like 80% of those are only going to be missing one player, so filtering by that won't help you
mike_c: give me an example of a hand you're *not* interested in.

Birdman: ok so i suppose we could get rid of any that have the value "seat256" in the summary and any that are missing the summary in general
mike_c: excluding ones with no summary only cut 10%
mike_c: not sure what you mean by seat256, paste me an example
mike_c: !!up Birdman
deedbot: Birdman voiced for 30 minutes.
Birdman: seat 256 i mean, and http://wotpaste.cascadianhacker.com/pastes/i3zev/?raw=true
mike_c: still 4,393 bad hands. down from 5,013. so doesn't cut out too many
Birdman: then may as well keep them
Birdman: well thank you this is crazy helpful!
mike_c: http://wotpaste.cascadianhacker.com/pastes/VWZcn/?raw=true
Birdman: any way for me to run this and have it spit out hand numbers it finds?
Birdman: rather, save it to a text file
mike_c: ^ excludes hands with no summary and hands with seat 256
mike_c: you just want it to spit out the hand numbers? sure.
Birdman: i meant to have it save results to a text file, how do i do that>
mike_c: well, if that's all you want just:
mike_c: "python hands2.py c:\directory > logfile.csv"
mike_c: or logfile.txt, or whatever
mike_c: oooh, goats shipped!
mike_c: thanks asciilifeform!
Birdman: and i type just that string after the rest at the same time? "whatever.py C:/handhistories python hands2.py c:\directory > logfile.txt" ?
mike_c: uh, no, like this:
mike_c: whatever.py c:\handhistories > logfile.txt
mike_c: sorry, mine is named hands2.py :)
Birdman: ah tyty
asciilifeform: in other lulz, http://fork.lol
asciilifeform: mike_c: np. sorry for the delay, i had to drive coupla hrs to the house where the stockpile lives.

mike_c: last tweak
Birdman: whats this one do?
mike_c: run it like: whatever.py c:\handhistories -q
mike_c: and it will just spit out the hand numbers
Birdman: ah
mircea_popescu: ooo check that out, lol domains!
mike_c: hm, what happened in the last couple days? difficulty adjustment?
mircea_popescu: mike_c adjustment was on 9th.
mike_c: ok. so that chart is saying that a BCH is going for 0.15 BTC. which is about double reality afaict
mike_c: oh, hm, it did go up the last couple days. good time to sell!
mircea_popescu: iirc the imaginary number was always ~600 bux.
mircea_popescu: let me know if you manage to actually get anything for them, i've yet to meet someone who has.

a111: Logged on 2016-10-16 06:28 rarepepeforever: http://coinmarketcap.com/assets/pepe-cash/
mike_c: oh, yeah, I did.
mircea_popescu: o ?
mircea_popescu: wanna do that as a service ?
mike_c: yes
mircea_popescu: tell me ?
mike_c: well, now that I'm thinking about it, not sure how that would work as a service. Because I had to use some assumed virus ridden POS BCH wallet. So I swept out a BTC wallet, then imported the address keys into the assumed virus wallet for BCH
mike_c: that actually worked, and then I sold it.
mircea_popescu: and then you got bitcoin back out ?
mike_c: I did. I was dumbfounded.
mike_c: but you know, all I risked was some time.
mircea_popescu: so you would do it as "send me 1 btc, i will send back 1.1 btc depending on market"
mike_c: but I would need the keys to wherever that 1 btc was pre-fork
mircea_popescu: ah so it's "send me the keys to pre-fork addresses, and i'll return btc" ?
mike_c: right
mircea_popescu: "whether spent or not on main chain" ?
mike_c: and assume that virus ridden wallet will attempt to clean out that BTC address ☟︎
mike_c: right, if it was moved post-fork, doesn't matter
mircea_popescu: well so this seems like it is a very credible service, makie a website
mircea_popescu: "send me your keys to SPENT btc addresses, i will send you back some btc"
mircea_popescu: free money website as it were.
mike_c: right
mircea_popescu: charge a coupla percents or w/e.
mike_c: this is a good idea. I'll have to see if I can make the process less manual.
mircea_popescu: in principle there's you know, 100mn dollars worth of free money sittibng on ground, if you get 1% of that you really don't need a job.
mircea_popescu: (of course in reality there isn't, but w/e, not the worst business idea i ever heard.)
mike_c: well, there's only as much money as the order book is deep
mircea_popescu: yeah.
mircea_popescu: but the order book for average start-up is 0 deep.
mike_c: currently i could sell 500 BCH(bcc? whatever) for a bit over 50 btc. price has run up last couple of days.
mircea_popescu: bit of a time bomb, as i'm sure these will pop up. first mover advantage i guess.
mircea_popescu: anyway, cheap source of retweets/likes/wjhatever such social media crapital.
mike_c: well sure, but who gives a shit about social media. it doesn't have any btc.
mircea_popescu: (though traditionally the way "bitcoin doubler" scams work is that they pay off initially. and i don't expect this "bitcoin cash market" thing is anything else, however it may be interpreted by the retard crowd)
mircea_popescu: mike_c well, social media has tits. though usually of the useless variety.
mike_c: there's a decently deep book. takes 4500 BCH to get down to 6% right now.
mike_c: I don't think the market will last long enough for automated service to be worth it, but I'll turn the cranks if anyone wants me to clean out some spent keys.
mike_c: Reasonably manual process, so there would be a reasonable fee, but it's free money if you're not going to do it yourself.
mike_c: ping me if interested.
mircea_popescu: can you be specific ?
mike_c: Sure - given keys, I will sell BCH quickly - not too much regard for trying to optimize yield, without being entirely stupid about it. I'll keep.. 10% and give other party 90%. My fee will be minimum 0.5 btc and maximum 10 btc.
mircea_popescu: ic!
mike_c: so given spent address that used to have 50 btc, I sell the BCH, key owner gets free 4.5 btc. not too shabby.
mircea_popescu: provided owner can't be arsed to dih
mike_c: right. or hire someone else cheaper.

r0nin-: yes
mircea_popescu: yes. that means the value seeps out of the country.
r0nin-: the Uk has to run a budget deficit to add the money that is seeping out of the country
r0nin-: if they dont run it the economy contracts
mircea_popescu: mno. the uk adds money to compensate for THE VALUE seeping out of the country.
r0nin-: no the value is not seeping out of the country
r0nin-: its being added
r0nin-: EU products go to UK
r0nin-: GBP go out
r0nin-: whats the cost to produce GBP?
r0nin-: zero.
r0nin-: wahts the cost to produce EU products? a fucking lot.
mircea_popescu: understand this ? at first there's 100 pounds of goods and 100 pounds sterling. then the uktards want to live above their means, so some bezzle is printed up, say a further 20 sterling. then the trade deficit starts, and in the next step there's 80 pounds worth of goods and 100 pounds sterling in the country. discounting the pound sterling from the original 1 to .8.
r0nin-: that why US has a high consumption level despite producing nothing, while germany everyone is poor
mircea_popescu: this is ridoinculous.
r0nin-: look UK has a trade deficit.
r0nin-: that means more products enter then leave
r0nin-: they pay for their trade deficit with their own currency
r0nin-: so the countries that run a trade surplus with the UK
r0nin-: have the GBP now.
mircea_popescu: it's not that it has it. it's that it went from "empire" to "minor province" through maintaining a trade deficit. EXACTLY in the manner spain went from world's empire to minor province, two centuries earlier, through maintaining a trade deficit.
r0nin-: whats it the COST to produce a pound?
mircea_popescu: so what if it got all the aztec gold, if all of it ended up with the dutch.
r0nin-: yea but the products didnt
mircea_popescu: of course they did. that's why uk has no further industrial base, cuz they did.
r0nin-: the UK has a higher standard of living becuase of the trade deficit the same way the US does
r0nin-: the UK has no industrial base becuase they didnt care about it
r0nin-: they get subsidized by outside manufacturers
mircea_popescu: this notion that what you're exporting in a trade deficit situation is "the pound", ie, bezzle, is false. what you're exporting is always the value, bezzle always stays at home.
r0nin-: no
r0nin-: the UK is exporting a financial claim against it
r0nin-: its IMPORTING goods and services
mircea_popescu: you are very naive ; moreover very impudent to go with it.
r0nin-: the US is the same
r0nin-: tahts why you go to US and see everyone in new BMWs
r0nin-: but you go to germany and everyones in old ass shit
asciilifeform: lol!
trinque: bwahahaha
trinque: r0nin-: come over; I'll take you on a tour
mircea_popescu: dude... when the fuck were you last in the us.
r0nin-: they export their surplus value
asciilifeform: r0nin-: ever been to usa ?
r0nin-: yes
r0nin-: i was in miami last year
mircea_popescu: lmao. why is it that the orcs always end up in miami ?
r0nin-: obviously im a bit exagerating
r0nin-: the point is the US sends dollars which the world saves in
mircea_popescu: it's incredible, that place, the official capitol of the spanish main, every monkey from argentina to panama worships miami. ☟︎
r0nin-: and in return recieves actual wealth
trinque: mircea_popescu: they wanna suck the tip of US cock?
r0nin-: haha true mircea
mircea_popescu: it literally is the capital of a large, bn-strong spanish gypo world.
r0nin-: if you have a trade deficit the governmetn has to run a budget deficit
r0nin-: or else the economy contracts
trinque: r0nin-: you've repeated that twice now, as though quoting your bible.
mircea_popescu: r0nin- i dun think you're qualified to discuss these matters.
r0nin-: budget deficits add new money to the economy
r0nin-: mircea think about it
r0nin-: UK runs a trade deficit with the EU that means EU is 'working' for the UK
r0nin-: they are sending them actual goods/services
mircea_popescu: sigh.
r0nin-: in return for what? claims on nothing.
r0nin-: GBP.
asciilifeform: r0nin-: and kiting cheques 'adds money' to household budget..?
r0nin-: the government budget isnt a household
mircea_popescu: "no but it's not a household!!"
r0nin-: because a household cannot issue its own currency
r0nin-: its a 'user'
mircea_popescu: it's fucking magic, he read it in the polish version of the new york times. THINK ABOUT IT!!!!
r0nin-: the private sector is always a net saver
asciilifeform: r0nin-: zimbabwe issued trillion-dollar notes -- why not world power ?
r0nin-: the government provides the financial instrument the private sector saves in.
mircea_popescu: r0nin- look, this "deductively emplaced" government you keep thinking of doesn't exist irl.
r0nin-: zimbabwe gave away 80% of its productive farms
r0nin-: to useless individuals
r0nin-: the production collapsed
r0nin-: thats why you had hyper inflation
trinque: are you high? you're bouncing *all over*
mircea_popescu: r0nin- stop fucking typing three words to the line. what are you, some kind of idiot ?
r0nin-: hyper inflation is always a result of a sudden production shock
r0nin-: sorry mircea
r0nin-: every single assclown brings up zimbabwe or weimer as their lame example of 'hyperinflation' without every understanding what happened there
mircea_popescu: this is high art on the level of the holy tonsilectomy.
r0nin-: money printing occurs AFTER the inflation started, not before it.
r0nin-: prices go up, the economy requires more money to pay it, and its a cycle
r0nin-: higher interest rates = higher inflation.
mircea_popescu: let's try and get some basics welded down. do you understand "inflation" is the phenomenon of mismatched currency and goods ?
r0nin-: thats why all the tards got it totally wrong with the 'dollar collapse'
r0nin-: yes mircea.
mircea_popescu: ok. so then : when you run a trade deficit, you are NOT exporting currency and importing goods..
r0nin-: yes you are.
mircea_popescu: you are exporting goods and importing goods.
r0nin-: in the case of the Uk and US you are
r0nin-: lol what goods is the Uk exporting?
mircea_popescu: this leaves you with the unbacked currency, and it becomes more and more unbacked as the trade deficit progresses.
r0nin-: no fiat currency is backed by anything.
mircea_popescu: r0nin- http://btcbase.org/log/2017-08-19#1700737 ☝︎
a111: Logged on 2017-08-19 15:30 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform here, you'll lulz : largest 2016 export was 42bn worth of gold.
r0nin-: its entirely based on the issuers promise to take it back from you in payment of taxes
mircea_popescu: dja understand this ? the "not household" household of uk just sold its wedding ring and buttplug.
r0nin-: mircea: the UK imports way more goods/services from the world then it 'exports
mircea_popescu: r0nin- china doesn't pay fucking taxes to the uk. you'll take it back in exchange for fucking gibraltar is what you'll do.
r0nin-: china is inccuring massive costs by exporting
mircea_popescu: r0nin- and my slavegirls eat more than they shit. this makes their ass mine. not the other fucking way around
r0nin-: pollution, sick labor force etc.
mircea_popescu: because in any disagreement of oppinion, he with the trade balance wins.
r0nin-: export is a COST.
r0nin-: the entire premise of a country is to minimize costs and maximize gains, so send as little as possible while importing as much as possible
r0nin-: italians understood this best with 5000euro purses.
mircea_popescu: heh.
r0nin-: mircea: the UK does not have a shortage of goods on shelves for plebs to buy. it may have problems with income distribution.
mircea_popescu: countries run by 12 year old girls, and then they wonder why a) there's no further demand for white males and b) the cuckening.
mircea_popescu: r0nin- it does. for instance -- housing.
mircea_popescu: worst fucking shithole in all of europe, as far as that's concerned.
r0nin-: well i agree the place is miserable
r0nin-: but it was always a shithole throughout the last 500 years.
mircea_popescu: even 1960s soviets had better houses. how about that for "Shelves".
r0nin-: 19th century london was one massive slum
mircea_popescu: mno, actually, before hitler quashed it it was doing ok-ish.
r0nin-: the first of its kind worldwide
r0nin-: no it wasnt. all the aristocrats were completely broke from jewish loans taken out in the 19th century in order to pretend they are like the romans
r0nin-: hence all the villas littered on the countryside
mircea_popescu: was doing a fuckload better before the introduction of the telegraph empowered the englishtarded concentration of administration. somehow they newver learned anything out of the america defeat.
r0nin-: churchhill was so broke he literally sent family members to america to beg for money for appearances sake
mircea_popescu: but anyway, back when "english" essentially meant dutch, it was doing just fine.
r0nin-: https://www.amazon.com/Churchill-Jews-Friendship-Martin-Gilbert/dp/0805088644
r0nin-: this is one of the best books about england at the time you are referencing
r0nin-: churchhills family was indebted for the last 120 years
mircea_popescu: why does this matter ?
r0nin-: because the british empire that you so praise was nothing more than a common understanding of 2 groups
r0nin-: english aristocracy and jewish finance
mircea_popescu: so ?
r0nin-: and it ended in disaster.
r0nin-: consequences to which we are living in today
mircea_popescu: well, they misjudged hitler and he frucked them. this was ~common at the time.
r0nin-: britian dragged the dumb german kaiser into WW1 because the german industrial base had surpassed anything england could have imagined and he began building a navy
mircea_popescu: right.
mircea_popescu: hey, this much we agree on.
r0nin-: because as you correctly pointed out earlier, they dont protect their industries
r0nin-: germans did
mircea_popescu: they still do. for all that poverty, they actually got the 4th reich going over there.
r0nin-: UK leaving the EU will lead to a dramatic decline in the standard of living for everyone there, since they will no longer be subsidized with goods from europe
r0nin-: hence the pound tanking
mircea_popescu: the decline has nothing to do with that. uk has been on a decline path since indeed, 1800s, and will continue to decline. and because their women are ugly, there's no italian parachute under their ass either. wales is a fine example of where england ends up.
mircea_popescu: or if you prefer, historical scotland.
r0nin-: i agree
r0nin-: england will end up an irrelevent island of pastey fucks
r0nin-: even the cuisine is shit
r0nin-: my original point was you are wrong on trade deficits
trinque: that's not a point, you idiot. make one.
mircea_popescu: but the ~reason~ for it is very much found in 1600s trade policy. the dutch had open trade, the english wanted all trade to go through london. their centralist, counterproductive approach is what sunk them. they kept getting freebies, such as when the dutch moved over under wilhelm to become "english", but by and large uk is a thrown rock. it goes down.
r0nin-: what sunk them was free trade
mircea_popescu: and the reason british empire was dying already by the time hitler cut its head off was that the brits in their idiocy wanted all the various policies in india etc to be set from london.
r0nin-: the english model has always been built on usury
r0nin-: usury as the source of value in the economy
mircea_popescu: i'm not sure what that's supposed to mean.
r0nin-: germans understood in 19th century that labor creates wealth not staring at gold coins all day
mircea_popescu: there's a time-value of money, what.
r0nin-: thats a made up excuse
r0nin-: there is no time value of money
r0nin-: if you take 2 gold coins and put them in a shelf are they going to copulate and have children?
mircea_popescu: "labor creates wealth" is unilateral nonsense, one of the three flavours available. what creates wealth is labour well applied to capital goods. that's people + management + tools.
r0nin-: yes
r0nin-: exactly
r0nin-: and what is capital goods?
mircea_popescu: the time value of money comes preciselty from the "well applied" part.
r0nin-: previously stored labor.
mircea_popescu: because management has to decide optimal usage of capital goods and labour, and thereby there's a time-value of both of these.
r0nin-: previously stored labor(credit) + labor(present) = future wealth.
r0nin-: there is no other way.
mircea_popescu: in labour that's a wage, in capital that's an interest.
r0nin-: dude how does your money 'breed'?
r0nin-: and have children(interest)
r0nin-: explain that to me
r0nin-: its sterile
mircea_popescu: i just explained this yest, amusingly enough. here : http://btcbase.org/log/2017-08-18#1700427 ☝︎
a111: Logged on 2017-08-18 22:41 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform your notion of money is broken in that you misunderstand its materiality.
r0nin-: england believed that by hoarding gold coins they would be getting 'rich', so they ran massive trade surpluses at the beginning of their shitty empire
r0nin-: which led to immense poverty inside england
r0nin-: becuase once again how does exporting real goods/services and hoarding gold make you rich? lolz
r0nin-: this is exactly what china is doing now
mircea_popescu: nobody gives a shit about "poverty". let the plebs fucking croak.
mircea_popescu: that's what they're for.
r0nin-: englands next genius idea was to impose the gold standard onto the economy and completely choke it
r0nin-: because newton said so
mircea_popescu: the correct approach is rendering the idiotas for fat. as stalin did, as china does, as everyone who's worth two shits ever did.
mircea_popescu: everything else is decay.

mircea_popescu: in theory it could be fit on a fpga.
spyked: hm. this is neat stuff. I know opencores had some free Lisp FPGA designs. never tried any of them though.
mircea_popescu: turns out the whole hello & welcome works out a lot better when i don't have to ask "so who are you". who could have predictated.
spyked: my initial thought on getting a Lisp machine run was using a RISC machine as microcode. and implement the whole thing bare metal in software. it's a lot cheaper, albeit probably hard to verify
mircea_popescu: spyked the thing you used to search btw, runs in lisp.

mircea_popescu: :p
mircea_popescu: are you aware i think your "formal" model is a piece of shit from paragraph one ? ☟︎
mircea_popescu: you're equivocating between definition and constructor! wtf is "a list is... : is the list making operator so a list is 1:2:[]" nonsense!
mircea_popescu: what's wrong with "a list is an enumerated set" ? which is what a list is.
mircea_popescu: it's a set, and enumerated because computers lack the ability to construct ~described~ sets, such as "the set of prime numbers" or w/e.
spyked: hm. you mean, there's a long way from "enumerated set" to 1:2:[] which I skipped?
mircea_popescu: im not sure there's any way whatsoever.
mircea_popescu: but in my experience, generally people take refuge in minutia when scared of biting the problem. wtf difference does it make how i construct an enumerated set, maybe i push icecubes off the table into the paper bin with my penis.
mircea_popescu: and this 1 2 3 4 bs implying metered and measured and ordered and whatnot. aaanyway, /me reads on.
mircea_popescu: spyked no, see, you already reference "arbitrary order" without having even discussed the matter. why is a list ordered ? how is it ordered ? can penis pushe ice cubes not be a set ?
spyked: yeah, it was very easy to conflate "list can be described as either nil, or pair between something and a list" and "list is defined as". I could rewrite sometime if you think it's worth it; I don't think it is, I was just trying to show how reasoning about software isn't trivial even when you have a framework for that, let alone when void *p = ...;
mircea_popescu: "We may informally state that "reversing a given list yields the list which has the same elements but in the exact opposite order (e.g. right-to-left, as opposed to left-to-right)", but we have no way of accurately specifying this in our language other than by defining rev and postulating that "rev reverses any given list". The same goes for appending lists."
mircea_popescu: except... what does "left" mean ?!
mircea_popescu: it ends up as being an example as to why it is hard to think about systems if one's very inclined to unhygienically import random unknowns into the workbench.
spyked: which was discussed here before, yeah. not new I guess
mircea_popescu: spyked jesus god T1...
mircea_popescu: this is terrible.
spyked: the whole thing is. and yes, this is "formal verification 101" taught in universities. if you want to get even more outraged about it, read Heiser's post at the beginning.
mircea_popescu: no, i have a weak heart.
spyked: he has a start-up where he employed an army of "proof engineers" to work on systems verification. I'm pretty skeptical about it, since I tried very hard to understand his papers some years ago and now it's completely paged out of my brain
mircea_popescu: the problem with getting "engineers" to construct proofs in this vein is that engineers have too much monkey in them. "doctor, doctor, if i shove it in this way it works!"
mircea_popescu: this is nice, especially when found magic weapon in the field. but also very useless.

spyked: diana_coman, but giumale retired. btw, I know he made a Lisp machine clone back in the 80s. the hardware might be lying around somewhere in the faculty.

mircea_popescu: lol
mircea_popescu: why genera though ?
