mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo from experience nobody gives a flying fuck about visas in this part of the world.
BingoBoingo: That's the suspicion, but still likely useful as part of journey to second passport
BingoBoingo: Or I guess there's the finding a girl to marry route, but then I forfeit my dissident license.
ben_vulpes: BingoBoingo: d'you want to talk to the guys i spoke to in hk?
ben_vulpes: i'd rather get back to profiling mpfhf than marketing a cabinet
BingoBoingo: ben_vulpes: THeir contact info wouldn't hurt. Anyways the trade off is warehousing the meat in Brazil is less expensive while starting a business in HK is a two hour online form. It still would not hurt at all to have a VulpesISP even with a BingoISP
BingoBoingo: Brb, sobertime
ben_vulpes: perhaps my estimates are bad but i'm also having trouble make the thing pencil out to not-a-flaming-hole-in-my-own-pocket
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes did you publish that anywehre ?
ben_vulpes: no, but i could type it up
ben_vulpes: would appreciate some more experienced eyes on it for sure

trinque: yeah, isn't uniform is it. I can change invoice and pay to match withdraw.
mircea_popescu: i think amt first is better, so yeah.

hanbot: anyway, very cool itam.
hanbot: trinque that withdraw was a bitpay thingie with 3mins left on the clock fwiw.
trinque: hm, possible it didn't get there in time then. I just dispatched it.
trinque: I think I've told everyone by now that this is a by hand process. I dunno that I'd use it for that.
trinque: how long do they usually give you?
hanbot: 15 mins. anyway, they credited it, should be fine and dandy
trinque: 15min til they see the unconfirmed?
hanbot: 15 mins is what they give you "to pay" in their idiotic bleeping red timer interface. it "ran out" in this instance, but they still see the tx afterwards and credit it
trinque: super dumb.
hanbot: i don't know what the actual time threshold is tbh. clearly longer than 15 mins tho.

mircea_popescu: the god of magic numbers gave them the 900 second and they're sticking ot it!
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes a) you're not going to make money renting space as such. this wasn't even in the original design, i've nfi why you added it in.
mircea_popescu: b) you're not going to charge 1k/mo for any servers, don't be ridiculous. you're going to pay 500-2k to buy the server, and then rent it out for the usual 2x the fixed cost.
mircea_popescu: your 42 u full rack takes 40 boxes, optimized so they pull say 150-200 W on average. that'll keep you out of power overages 99% of the time.
mircea_popescu: they cost you about 50k to buy, and the rack will run you about 50k for a year. that means your yearly budget is about 100k, roughly.
mircea_popescu: !~calc 1e5 / 40 / 12
jhvh1: mircea_popescu: 1e5 / 40 / 12 = 208.33333333333331
BingoBoingo: !!balance
mircea_popescu: your cost basis is ~200 per server. you can rent them for 3-400 as such, or can give out vpsen, which are more productive. perhaps even "shared" if particularily interested into it.
deedbot: http://p.bvulpes.com/pastes/zTdmb/?raw=true
mircea_popescu: these take more work, and consequently provide more revenue.
mircea_popescu: after the first year your machines are amortized and your downline built, so you're looking at some decent net margin. before the first year you're burdened by the capital costs and stuck with low occupancy, so you bleed cash.
mircea_popescu: that's ~the story.
mircea_popescu: what separates the men from the children is that one year, and whether at the end of it you're green or not.
mircea_popescu: and in other determined & disciplined ladies, http://78.media.tumblr.com/59e2abb30065155f37a61619912ee9f6/tumblr_nlpa1fx6kq1u65br0o1_400.gif
BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> they cost you about 50k to buy, and the rack will run you about 50k for a year. that means your yearly budget is about 100k, roughly. << This is roughly my impression. 50k colorent, 40-70k-ish hardware, 35-ish k physical presence so as to walk to servers, 2k birthing company, 5k retainers, 100k prudent reserve (In case of Best Korea, Intifada, meteor storm, Pelosi). Rent boxes out for ~2x cost basis (all in, not board so
BingoBoingo: PCENGINES APU not so cheap), VPS 3x+ cost basis. Misc weird (i.e. hand courier and colo 32 bit SPARC machine) billed in proportion to time they take from providing excellent customer service and 2x cost basis for livng space.
BingoBoingo: But this week is about refining that to more concrete figure.
BingoBoingo: But 25-30k/month by month 18 is goal
BingoBoingo: gross receipts
mircea_popescu: well it's good to have goals in any case.
BingoBoingo: Well goal more honest than US retail label of "plan"

mircea_popescu: but the curse of stupid is amply distributed and heavy indeed. consider : for the past THREE YEARS i have been giving ANY WOMAN IN THE WORLD hundreds of dollars. this is more than ANY "organization" ever did for the women in this world, be it something from usg.alphabet, or usg.un bureaucracy or anyone else.
mircea_popescu: but the needy women themselves have carefully worked together to avoid being halped.

BingoBoingo: <shinohai> If BingoBoingo gets cursed I'll be sad :( << Not the first time having recieved coin from MP
shinohai: Good, that means you are immune
BingoBoingo: <asciilifeform> http://btcbase.org/log/2017-10-22#1727598 << pcengines ftr costs <200bux (sans disk), draws ~10w, and much spiffier for any practical use than vps << AHA, but it feeds same market segment. The thing about cheap boards is people can forget the other things that go into being a machine like casing, etc☝︎
a111: Logged on 2017-10-22 05:20 mircea_popescu: your cost basis is ~200 per server. you can rent them for 3-400 as such, or can give out vpsen, which are more productive. perhaps even "shared" if particularily interested into it.
BingoBoingo: <asciilifeform> in other reportage from orcvalhalla: there are as many mini-casinos here as banks. << 5 years ago here in Southern Illinois there were few of these, now in most bars and a good chunk of gas stations. Even a few freestanding ones.

asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: not bars here, but entire gambling-dens with nought but dedicated лохотронs
