diana_coman: if there were any cats mentioned I'd have guessed Turkey!
asciilifeform: not so poor
diana_coman adds note to her asciilifeform-glossary

diana_coman: India?
asciilifeform: nope

asciilifeform: and it has pretty gurlz, and proper dairy
asciilifeform: and mighty fine bandwidth
asciilifeform: and mighty fine nearly everything, now that i think about it.
diana_coman: hm, so ..what's *wrong* with it?
asciilifeform: really, nuffin wrong with it, at least not to asciilifeform's naked eye. i'd move immediately if i could.

phf: asciilifeform: it's not a fun game, because there's not any kind of hook to go buy. "great coffee and beautiful women" is not it
phf: but i'll guess it's either spain or croatia
mircea_popescu: http://btcbase.org/log/2017-10-23#1727899 << turkey is not poor in any sense.☝︎
a111: Logged on 2017-10-23 16:56 asciilifeform: not so poor
phf: i suspect in turkey it would've been "they have bidet in public toilets!"
mircea_popescu: in fact if taken to mission district and sultanahmed, civillian would wrongly decide which is "the capital of the technology world of the future"
mircea_popescu: phf hahaha no such thing. throughout arab world, most of turkey included, the standard toilet includes a water spit pipe ~where the watertrap is. with special fauced accessible whiole seated.
phf: come to think of me both of my guesses are poorer than turkey
mircea_popescu: aha. to reiterate, must visit istanbul, at the very least a weekend, take girl across horn to see the train station the romanians bombed, kebab etc.
asciilifeform: nao if only they let folx with u.s. pasports in'ere
phf: mircea_popescu: i was thinking of those small plastic bottles they leave even when proper water system is not accessible.
asciilifeform: ( tr recently banned folx from usa )
mircea_popescu: AND throughout the egypt that i've seen, they to this day have clay pots with water in the shade every quarter mile or so on the road. notwithstanding that yes you can buy bottled water and did i share that pic of the desert dhl ?
phf: asciilifeform: my guess wasn't evaluated!
asciilifeform: negative on both, phf

phf: that's what makes a riddle a riddle
asciilifeform: it's a fun riddle to folx who possibly know a few things re asciilifeform

diana_coman: phf, ahh, bidet, right; tbh that made me instantly think of Italy and it would fit womenz (if south) but I kind of crossed out EU to start with

mircea_popescu: asciilifeform there's plenty of islam in ro lol. for eg constanta is like 15% sunni.
mircea_popescu: ancient people, too. dobruja muslims are like odessa russians, there before the romanian occupation.
diana_coman: lol; those rubbish bins looked very...Romanian but the "no islam" thing didn't quite fit, hence Hungary seemed more likely

a111: Logged on 2017-10-23 19:54 asciilifeform: ancient islam a-ok
mircea_popescu: pointedly it does not, "western civilisation" reduces to the habsburg lands centered on vienna, or if one is 1600s versed the paris-florence-venice axis i guess
asciilifeform: asciilifeform wurked for an ancientislam d00d for many yrs
mircea_popescu: anglos never were part of western civilisation in any meaningful sense, and their piracy adventures dun change this.

asciilifeform: also not an angloid but these fine folx dunnno that

BingoBoingo: Remember kids to always ask for the additional details: http://wotpaste.cascadianhacker.com/pastes/DFTue/?raw=true
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: thus far i can’t escape the suspicion that rack rental is fundamentally same type of chumpatron as box rental
asciilifeform: ( i.e. ripoff against ‘poorfags’ who can’t or won’t build a dc )
BingoBoingo: Eh, looking more like the price of internet isn't being properly levied upon consumers.
mircea_popescu: fwiw, trilema serves 1-2 terrabytes each month.
mircea_popescu: !~calc 8*1024 ** 4 / 30 / 24 / 3600
jhvh1: mircea_popescu: 8*1024 ** 4 / 30 / 24 / 3600 = 3393554.406716049
mircea_popescu: 3.4Mbps sustained.
mircea_popescu: !~calc 12 / 9
jhvh1: mircea_popescu: 12 / 9 = 1.3333333333333333
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo so they wanna eat a 3 per mbps at the lowest setting, looks like, and otherwise willing to let you have it for 50 cents if you commit.
mircea_popescu: or am i misunderstanding all this ?
BingoBoingo: Well, I am working on understanding this. Was sorta hoping to get a X per Terabyte figure. Anyways, the billing convention on these terms seems to be outta the month busiest 36 hours are tossed and transfer is averaged.
mircea_popescu: the devil is in the details. "busiest 36 hours ARE SERVED and not billed", or "we will simply cut you from internet 36 hours each month and bill for th erest" ?
BingoBoingo: Served, not figured into the averaging. Hence "95th percentile"
mircea_popescu: not the worst arrangement.
BingoBoingo: Not at all, looking pretty good actually. Even unmetered is only $4.6/mbps which shows transit price is not outta whack, if we had a customer planning to fully saturate connection.
BingoBoingo: Also makes using a U or two on shared hosting service not such a bad proposition.
BingoBoingo: But makes it clear why Netflix tries to plant a cage full of VCRs as clost to every customer as possible.
mircea_popescu: right. i don't recall off hand the phuctor traffic figures, but pretty sure it's not 1mbps sustained over a month ; iirc not even a tenth that. eulora similarily eats in the kbps sustained, and so...
mircea_popescu: !~calc 1024*1024/8*3600*24*30
jhvh1: mircea_popescu: 1024*1024/8*3600*24*30 = 339738624000
BingoBoingo trying to figure what a Bitcoin node sustains over a month.
mircea_popescu: ~340 GB = 1 Mbps sustained for a month. ignoring the 95% thing.
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo depends on the node, but a non-magistral item maybe 10-50 kbps.
BingoBoingo: Sweet, and having the two 10 Gbps ports is only a $400 portion of the $3840 quote.
mircea_popescu: yeah.
mircea_popescu: anyway, prolly get their lowest thing and expand it when you see enough traffic to justify it.
mircea_popescu: ie when 800 + n * 12 > 1400 + n * 11 and so following.
BingoBoingo going to pick up a PCENGINES apu to play with, Ubiqiti has distributors in Brazil, exploring best way to acquire boxes
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo one doesn't help. you gotta mount eight as per alf's magics, i wouldn't bother.
mircea_popescu: you're not an experimental machine building station. if the item exists commercially you use it ; if not whoever aims to whine is more than welcome to produce it himself.
BingoBoingo: 8 it'll be then
mircea_popescu: ya but iirc you need custom mounts and so on.
BingoBoingo: I'm thinking u1 rackmount formed aluminum sheet with fans on face apu chasis affixed to sheet, unless alf shares his recipe.
BingoBoingo: But yeah. Way to get monster Opteron 6128 boxes onto rack higher priority
