mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo heh they're finally starting to figure out that there's a fucking difference between painting a state blue in the sense that 300 more people could be arsed to answer the phone out of a population of 5mn is VERY DIFFERENT from turning a state red in the sense that you've got ten k people there ready to shoot.
mircea_popescu: "hurr durr, so-and-so is traditionally a democratic stronghold in the very limited sense that people there are willing to spend an hour on a sunday supporting democrats if it's not raining, and if the support is limited to stamping a piece of paper once. and if it's not gonna happen more often than once every few years at the most."

mircea_popescu: it's becoming difficult to go by it, the warak arish / baba ganoush / cardamom coffee exert a discernible pull.
asciilifeform: ( the sad thing re nfs co, is that it is in fact a kolhoz, quite like amazon's and the rest, but more ancient and built by actual men, vs 'millenial' scum, and so it actually ~works~, and delivers on the promise -- you don't own your hdd, BUT you never have to go down from a dead hdd; you own no ip; BUT no ddos; etc. it however IS STILL A KOLHOZ , with the complacency and inevitable day of doom that comes with this. ) ☟︎
mircea_popescu: myeah. living space, be it of the housing kind, or of the hosting kind, or of the hospital kind, or of all other kinds can only ever be operated as a kolhoz.
mircea_popescu: because of the significant fixed costs and the very sharply limited scalability.
mod6: hola
mircea_popescu: the demand is, as they say, very inelastic. if it comes to fucking, you can fuck whatever you catch : a lithe blonde today, a nothing tomorrow, a turkish hipped brunette next week. when it comes to eatring, you can eat three plums today even if you felt like two, so as not to throw one out, and you can make do with a chicken tomorrow, even if you wanted a slice of beef.
mircea_popescu: but you can't have some bloodwork you didn't need today because they had some extra capacity, nor can you not have a yellow fever shot when needed because they'll have some next week. by next week their value is 0.
mircea_popescu: inelastic demand + high fixed costs = kolhoz.
mircea_popescu: hey mod6
mircea_popescu: and this is evident both in how people dissolve the kolhoz once it becomes "politically" untenable (bullshit. there's no such thing as politics exactly like there's no such thing as "her feelings". she got fuicked because she got drunk, she got drunk because she was in the bar, and she went to the bar to get herself drunk to get herself fucked. politics is the "why" and economics is the "what she did".) : either they attack t
mircea_popescu: he inelastic demand by deliberately (and falsely) elasticizing their demand ; or else they attack the high fixed costs.

mircea_popescu: asciilifeform any proposal on a method to compare camellia and serpent meaningfully ?
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: all blockciphers are pseudoscientific. the only differences you can take to the bank, is that camellia was approved by nato bureaucrats, serpent was not; and the fact that serpent runs in constant time ( branch-free ).
asciilifeform: incidentally it is very simple to use multiple blockciphers and get guaranteed best-of ( asciilifeform described scheme in old thread )
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform ah, but developed by teh japanese.
mircea_popescu: and approved by the euros. and put in during 2008 by the ustards, then taken back out recently "for lack of interest" ie nsa pressure.
asciilifeform: it's quite similar to aes tho

asciilifeform: it isn't even that asciilifeform is particularly enamoured of 'serpent', but does believe that any cipher that cannot be implemented in the style shown in the paste, is ipso facto braindamaged beyond repair
mircea_popescu: i can certainly see that argument.
asciilifeform: if mircea_popescu , diana_coman , & co want to use 'serpent', i can make a pick-your-own-bitness-via-shamiring twist on above snippet. but prolly not until after i come back from voyage

asciilifeform: recall bbet etc
mircea_popescu: there are some advantages to having certain people in your equity base. such as that not being idiots, they won't vote stupidtly ; and so on.
mircea_popescu: there are some advantages in having equity in some projects, such as that you can to some degree prevent them from going dumb.
mircea_popescu: that's kinda the basis here.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform any particular implication ?
asciilifeform: simply re the 'contract is important for what it doesn't say' item
mircea_popescu: a
mircea_popescu: anyway, the fundamental problem, for which recall bitbet works as well as any other recall, is that you have ~0 chances of knowing at t0 what'll be fair at t2, because t1 is ???
mircea_popescu: the fiat forced mistake is to "o noes, gotta write it down BEFORE". it is forced because fiat world doesn't have a forum, ie, can't communciate, and as a result there's no such thing as meaningful consent, or negotiation.
mircea_popescu: the veheheheeeery shaky premise is that republic has forum and can communicate consequently is not so constrained.
mircea_popescu: might as well test it.
asciilifeform: the implication also is that there is a particular kind of mistake, exemplified imho by the zeroasset corp thing in bbet, that is easy to make -- to insist that the energy be conserved at all times ☟︎
asciilifeform: picture if lenin's band had insisted on payment in advance / monthly invoicing etc .
ben_vulpes: mircea_popescu: "service charges" eg sysadminnery, reboots, os install, vps hosting?
mircea_popescu: i have this utterly psychotic delusion that i don't personally wish to take more than i should have ; nor less ; and that a general system can be built on these premises. why the fuck would he want for me to have fewer shares than i should have ? what sense does it make, he is going to fuck all the women himself ? with what ? solve all the problems ? etc.
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes well obviously once you make it ima order servers.
mircea_popescu: like i dun recall, what was it, 3 boxes ?
ben_vulpes: i recall 3 sitting at asciilifeform's lab
asciilifeform: 3 currently in asciilifeform's tortureroom.
ben_vulpes: mention thereof at least
asciilifeform: can turn into moar reasonably quickly.
mircea_popescu: i was listing needs at some point. anyway.
asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: investigate amperage also.
ben_vulpes: asciilifeform: will do
ben_vulpes: am working a few other quotes as well, will check in later
asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: know anything re the vendor ?

asciilifeform: ( how it is structured. i.e. is it a tentacle ? )
mircea_popescu: hey, if he actually flies there and walks their room i'm pacified.
asciilifeform: will he fly to change disks ? clean fans ?
mircea_popescu: hang on, hang on.
asciilifeform: incidentally anybody interested in the diskless variant discussed in last thread ?
asciilifeform: ( theoretically, can haz 'eternal' boxes, welded shut )
mircea_popescu: alf is basically an explosion. now i gotta go to all the shards and say hang on, hang on individually.
ben_vulpes: mircea_popescu: also what means "lockable sets"?

asciilifeform: notbad
asciilifeform: this is a what, 42u ?
ben_vulpes: am estimating and asking for a sanity check on my estimate.
ben_vulpes: mhm; estimated as 42*.3kW
ben_vulpes: have yet to see how this pushes quotes around
asciilifeform: !~calc 12600 / 42
jhvh1: asciilifeform: 12600 / 42 = 300
asciilifeform: aa
asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: find also if the 12.6kW refers to peak or avg.
ben_vulpes: what do your opterons peak out at?
asciilifeform: 700 ea.
asciilifeform: W

mircea_popescu: and to round off http://btcbase.org/log/2017-10-14#1725352 : original blackhatworld was started by a moscow fellow whose name we'll elide. ☝︎
a111: Logged on 2017-10-14 21:02 asciilifeform: http://btcbase.org/log/2017-10-14#1725340 << i will admit to being curious re what it is mircea_popescu thinks he can use those folx for. they have the apparent intellectual ability of a turnip.
mircea_popescu: it was very much what you'd expect (somewhat anachronistically) of a "silk road 2.0" these days ; replete with moderators scamming users, various independent activities (what the usg calls illegal) and so forth.
mircea_popescu: this all ended in 2011, when a crack team of damien trevatt + gf (one jasmin choudhury ; split cca 2016 to whore out for deloitte uk) took over and pushed it in a "new direction", which consists of trying to make friends with the tedx zone of the blue usg. dood runs some minor conference organizer http://btcbase.org/log/2017-10-11#1723924 item on the side. ☝︎
a111: Logged on 2017-10-11 15:16 mircea_popescu: you understand what concert promotion is yes ?
mircea_popescu: if you wish, this is an interesting case of "orange revolution" of a web property. also rather an era ender, since 2011 they're no longer on the web but on the "deep" web whatevers.
asciilifeform: the conversion of a heathenpit into a honeypot, without skipping a beat of music, is fairly common thing
mircea_popescu: dude's vaguely amusing under the "trynna MP" angle, i guess, and moreover the process of pantsuit infiltration is pathology as any other, can be studied.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform aha.
asciilifeform: iirc there is even a usgological internal term for the process, but i fughot
mircea_popescu: this is interesting because evidently conducted by independent agent motivated by his own delusions of "making it in this game", rather than the more typical case of employee trying to steal from govt.
mircea_popescu: anyway, no schooling, started in the mailroom of ias group (toilet paper suppliers to hospitals etc).
mircea_popescu: or rather, got sucked into there from some "anti-aging medicine" scam / youthful tripod business, whatevs.
asciilifeform: contrary to popular belief, there is ~no moneys in the shitware biz. ( consider : spam makes ~0 ; ransomism trojan of global proportions ends up making a few dozen btc at best; what remains ? ...selling 'toolz' to ~penniless idjits ? )
asciilifeform: so it's a -ev game. and ergo no surprise that the people playing it, are turnips.
asciilifeform: not particularly different from the folx who play lotteries
mircea_popescu: it's more to it than just that. up to say about the dotcom bubble, the Official Example of the USG Official Rooseveltian Doctrine of Social Mobility was...
asciilifeform: it's ~exactly the same thing
mircea_popescu: the macdonalds / walmart / liberty mutual "executive" program
asciilifeform unfamiliar with subj
mircea_popescu: ie, you ~have alternative~ : join this usg corporation, wash toilets for a while, climb the ladder.
mircea_popescu: recent http://trilema.com/2017/cemetery-junction/ as fine an illustration as any other.
mircea_popescu: the problem with this is that it is ALSO a -ev game. there is no social mobility, not in the nato reich at any rate. the faking of it was becoming ever more expensive. and so cca 2001 it moved online.
asciilifeform: napoleon's 'marshall's baton in the knapsack of every soldier' is a lulgag
asciilifeform: it was a gag then and gag now.
mircea_popescu: the self-same no education no family relations no money plebs that were going to go into mcdonalds ccca 1987 went into "seo" and "working online" cca 2007.
mircea_popescu: that's kinda what's going on there. yes, turnips. like all peon spawn ever, like marius' legionnaires, like so on and so forth. they came out of a cunt and are looking for a grave.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: actually the pseudobusiness tradition is older, goes back to the 1950s american pyramids, 'amway' et al
asciilifeform: 'multilevels'
asciilifeform: the earliest were targeted at gurlz
asciilifeform: ( 'sell makeup-selling-kits to fellow hausfraus, getrich' )
mircea_popescu: those were more of an attack on the system than actual part of the system. much like http://trilema.com/2013/compliance/ describes a specific sort of insult.
mircea_popescu: what it says, importantly, is not merely that the roosevelt system doesn't work ; but that participation is in itself degrading.
asciilifeform: noshit.jpg
mircea_popescu: anyway, the point here is that having lost any capacity to control the actual reality, the usg took the next possible defensive line, which is to say trying to control the conversation.
mircea_popescu: which is what exact breach in the glorious blue pantsuit the above item is trying to patch
mircea_popescu: and WHY google's "activists only -- not bloggers" project shield will take on an ~aspirational figure~ from the "seo community".
mircea_popescu: and why reddit has "community guidelines" and so following.

asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: the warehouse kidz can be corralled into anything at all if can be persuaded that 'no alternative'
mircea_popescu: this is altogether dubious.
mircea_popescu: review the timeline lined earlier. 20 months of "depression".
