hanbot: <mircea_popescu> yes. the place you describe, btw, is prolly "bad curtain" mentioned afore. << badea cartan was indeed pretty satisfying. except for that one time i went to the fish shop on a blazing afternoon and found the attendant woman eating a rather underdone softboiled egg with a tiny spoon behind the buckets of crap and icre crap and experienced an acute tactile-olfactory horror

mircea_popescu: teh end of teh world is nigh.
mircea_popescu: that was last year. meanwhile some of teh organized-criminals got convicted to 3-5 years, and some of the liberated-victims killed their father.
asciilifeform realized, to his horror, that living in this hotel is cheaper than... living in asciilifeform’s house
asciilifeform: by a palpable chunk o’change .
BingoBoingo: Perhaps live more in hotel?
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: benjie bag not bottomless
asciilifeform: plane back to shitschwitz in couplea days
asciilifeform currently sitting in ‘museum of communist konsoomer’, playing with toys of his childhood, reading various ro equivs of наука и жизнь , guides to e.g. female hygiene (i shit thee not), engineering , misc vintage
asciilifeform: smells like my grandparents’ apt did
asciilifeform: btw mircea_popescu , my father was right, you lot had better gear than we did
asciilifeform: by a palpable long shot
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform there's some east/west differences, but yes. not just your father either, iirc i mentioned ro army general who was like "what did you think, i'd desert to moscow ? they're more fucked than we are"
mircea_popescu: but anyway. the czechs had it even ebtter than teh romanians and so following.
mircea_popescu: as to moscow, the new tsar has exafctly the problems of the old ones. problems tend to outlive tsars.
mircea_popescu: and in other lulz, "Young Ukrainian woman with excellent command of English and previous experience of Britain wishes to serve a woman or couple in the UK. Little previous experience of BDSM but very submissive and obedient."
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Consider alternate income streams like taping cheese and wurst to groin then smuggling into US?

mircea_popescu finally fucking figured out! check out eg * Eyes (adf42c3b@gateway/web/cgi-irc/kiwiirc.com/ip. above : https://cleantalk.org/blacklists/
mircea_popescu: basically, a vast majority of weblink remoras are simply wordpress / etc spambots trying to find the xmlrpc.php on kiwiirc.com
BingoBoingo: Holy fuck is wordpress a suck
BingoBoingo: And in other news, today is 2nd anniversary of BingoBoingo's first AA meeting. Cake will be later.
mircea_popescu: it's like an unwashed cunt, a good idea in principle implemented by imbeciles. as a result it provides a warm crack and fresh food to a whole pile of slime molds, cockroaches, worms, etcetera
BingoBoingo: And for some reason still worse when warm crack is chronically dry than when when chronically wet, this we learned from pantsuit
mircea_popescu: trilema has been a mindblowing exercise in "common man use of internet". EVERY fucking month a new botnet attempts to co-opt it into the totally-fucking-genius idea of ddos-by-wordpress. yes, that ancient hole published on trilema yuears ago, still unfixed.
mircea_popescu: trilema responds with a "fuck you" 40 byte message. THIS DOES NOT DETER.
mircea_popescu: they will try mns of times, 5-10-20 a second, because 0 interest in anything.
mircea_popescu: now and again i ban them (which results in attempts returning soft 404s, which is trilema pages, at a cost of 100kb+- per attempt)
mircea_popescu: this burns 10-20-50gb worth of BW before the lazy ass imbecile "hacker" notices and turns it off.
mircea_popescu: it's basically amoeba, 0 interest in doing anything right, 100% motivated by pain avoidance.
mircea_popescu: does the endless stream of 46 byte error messages do anything ? like in the vein of cracking us in the skull? no ?!?! THEN CONTINUE!!!
mircea_popescu: who knows, maybe it changes.
mircea_popescu: i full on suspect 50% or more of all the "work" engaged in at the offices of the various silicon-valley "building the future" "entrepreneurial" pieces of shit consists on repeatedly clicking "try again" on those old dos "general failure" error prompts.
mircea_popescu: who knows, maybe attempt #54654765986 does something different.

asciilifeform found a proper 'ro' joint, 'miorița', absolutely fuckingrocks

asciilifeform: i'ma make a proper 'chocolate factory' laters
davout: please do, i'll enjoy
mircea_popescu: you found... romanian pot ?
asciilifeform: lol
asciilifeform: a phood by hapsburg square
mircea_popescu recalls olden days when whatever group of 14-15yo westerners joined in for a tour of the cluj chocolate factory (feleacul).
mircea_popescu: "where would you like to take them out of, not like they grow inside goats or on trees or something"
asciilifeform: strangest find of asciilifeform's inside 'communist konsoomer' museum is prolly the plastic goban and b00k of pretty serious go problemz
asciilifeform: place had quite the opposite of what i think was the inntended effect, on me
mircea_popescu: what do you think was intended effect ?
asciilifeform: 'how poor and sad we were', i imagine
mircea_popescu: absolutely not.
asciilifeform: hmm no?
asciilifeform: it was great tho, all the things i liked and wantd in childhood, even phoods ( in photos ), were in there
asciilifeform: whereas i did not want cocacola or mcfucknuggets or previousbostoncuntlets for anytthing
asciilifeform: and still dont.
mircea_popescu: the intention is deliberately never stated with these things, but the reasonable guess would be more in the vein of http://btcbase.org/log/2017-06-14#1670353☝︎
a111: Logged on 2017-06-14 15:42 mircea_popescu: so i was gonna quote this story with my grandfather regretting the time of stalin, except apparently it;'s not in the log ? and there's even attempts to find the shit, like http://btcbase.org/log/2016-03-15#1433159
asciilifeform: *preciousb
mircea_popescu: ie, an (unreferenced, because they're cocksuckers aka "people themselves") attempt to answer to http://trilema.com/2010/vina-batranilor/
mircea_popescu: something in the lines of "oh, little people were great, and little things were great, it's just the great people (pars pro toto, ceausescu) that were bad".
asciilifeform: i don't feel antipathy for those batranilor
asciilifeform: or even for the shoemaker
mircea_popescu: i don't know i feel antipathy for anything else.
mircea_popescu: old accountants and old housewives are the only enemy mankind ever knew.
asciilifeform: housewives i can picture, but accountants ?!
mircea_popescu: yes. little men "just trying to get by" because "they have a family to support".
davout: my personal interactions with old accountants were mostly along the lines of "no, you can't do this"
mircea_popescu: the petit bourgeois buying britney spears records because they're "like" toscanini and unlike that, they're what he can afford.
davout: which quickly gets pretty annoying
mircea_popescu: the 80% scum.
asciilifeform: this is not unlike liking oranges but hating peels
mircea_popescu: when they were young they did "good enough" trucks and software, and when they're old they do "good enough" culture.
asciilifeform: can't have orange without peel, mircea_popescu
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform it's very unlike. it's not unlike liking cunt but hating smegma.
mircea_popescu: the only oranges this scum grows on live in neglected orange groves.
asciilifeform: there's not a culture without old folx
mircea_popescu: there is however a culture without petit bourgeois old folks.
mircea_popescu: in fact, there can only be a culture if they're not around.
mircea_popescu: the question any 70yo has to answer, and CAN NOT escape anymore than 20yo can escape the draft or the call of the streetgirl, is "why didn't you die".
asciilifeform: i dunno, what is asciilifeform , not petit bourgeouis ?
mircea_popescu: and the answer fucking better be something other than "because i carefully stuck to the walls"
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform you are in very plain and obvious danger of going that way, yes, with all yours "can'ts" and "Shouldn'ts"
asciilifeform: well expanding into 'cans' and 'shoulds' and hey play the tuba even if you never learned how etc currently
mircea_popescu: life's a struggle.
mircea_popescu: but in no case do i care about stalin's statistics. so he killed 50 trillion imbeciles ? good for him ; if they didn't suck so bad they'd still be around.
asciilifeform: stalin may be greatest hygienicist who lived.
mircea_popescu: what i care about is all the 50 trillion anodyne "concerned citizens" that got the gestapo so flooded with emails it had to get an unlisted number
mircea_popescu: to survive the public harassment.
mircea_popescu: the only immoral agent is the redditard ; boko haram comparatively frequentable.
asciilifeform: i have moar respect for alley cat ( btw i finally found where those live ) than redditus.
mircea_popescu: well, the old folks are the redditards of 1960.
asciilifeform: in the sense of 'no theorems' ?
mircea_popescu: because yes, the item existed. heck, it's noted for the year 1880, and for all previous decades.

mircea_popescu: quote ?
asciilifeform digs
asciilifeform: i'ma have to come back to this item. it was the thing with the swamp
mircea_popescu: anyway, no theorems isn't it. there's that famous case of my driver whom my mother (who was bumming a ride) asked in shock why'd he'd go around playing valet for a 17yo. he said something like "not everyone's a big deal". man had 0 theorems to prove, but also didn't go around deluding himself on the matter.
asciilifeform: 'those who are happy to sit in the swamp'
asciilifeform: hm.
mircea_popescu: what's it is the pretense to equality, the proposition that "no theorems is as good as any theorems", the "i know, i'll prototype bitcoin on windows, it's an os too" and so following.
mircea_popescu: the whore who dares pretend as if she doesn't owe the soldier her cunt, but rather, she... "has her own mind" and "her own options" and whatnot else.
asciilifeform: socialism ~extincted the earnestly servile sort of man , seems
mircea_popescu: "Итак, тебе не заплачу я: Но если ты простая блядь, То знай: за честь должна считать Знакомство юнкерского хуя!" is not some kind of fucking joke.
mircea_popescu: it's the dispositive final word on fate.
ben_vulpes: "Someone blessed with enough ability so as to recognize the superior qualities in the chosen by the Fates as our hero here present, but who carries neither the sweet delusion of recognizing the same in himself, nor ..."
mircea_popescu: indeed.
mircea_popescu: be all you can be, yes ; protect your ass as far as it can be, sure. BUT NO FURTHER. as far as it can be and no further! and don't go around pretending like anything's just as good as anything else, either.

Sub ameninţarea pistolului mitralieră, l-am legat de un copac şi am dat drumul la restul. Doar nu era să tragem. Nu furasem actele pentru asta. S-a dat alarma şi sute de miliţieni şi securişti, dotaţi cu elicoptere, ne-au luat urma”, îşi

mircea_popescu: you will know wankery by that unerring sign, that it is wankery.
mircea_popescu: virgin boy's wet dreams work exactly like adult's, BUT, importantly, they lack any representation of the vulva. because he's never seen one. if all he's seen is his mom's boob the succubi will show him boobs and he'll cream ; if he's once seen a slit, his succubi will have slits, but no clits. and so following.

asciilifeform: it will be entertaining to see the particular deed asciilifeform is hanged for , for inatance
asciilifeform: *instance
asciilifeform: prolly moar exciting by long shot than the reality.
mircea_popescu: you understand how the centrality pressure works ?
mircea_popescu: because the enemy purports to a "dispassionate" which is to say batshit insane "application of justice", random woman like say monica lewinsky can go to jail ~forever for ANYTHING. such as you know, "having not told some nosy bureaucrats whatever detail of her own god damned private sex life".
mircea_popescu: this then creates in the republic a pressure : since you might as well go to jail for jaywalking, DO NOT jaywalk, "because you have more important things to do" and "it'd be a pity to end up hanged for jaywalking".
mircea_popescu: this is exactly the idiotic "make it count" argument. and it should be obvious that ALL IT DOES is a) actually enact the "less important" enemy nonsense, such as "jaywalking laws" and b) fundamentally corrupt the republican opposition, because if you won't naturally jaywalk, hoiw would you naturally shoot obama in the face ? one needs the other, like tree needs roots.

FBI did not need to beat up Monica or toss into her purse heroin or ammunition.

ben_vulpes: asciilifeform: no, it very much mustest happen on republican boxes.
mod6: well... he's just saying if he wants ~something~ put up. (right?) much like i use mod6.net
shinohai: pulls out hair
mod6: haha. no worries.
trinque: shinohai: might do better with a "archive as much as you want for x / mo" style arrangement
trinque: disk is very cheap
trinque: though what happens when someone unsubscribes, archive is gone? doesn't serve the logs very well
trinque: arguably future logotron oughta preserve links itself
trinque: so then, subscription might be to a particular logotron. and hard to price those given that the market has ample, usable free
trinque: not that I fault a guy wanting to charge people for the use of his bot, obviously
asciilifeform: how the hell would one price a promise to archive 4evah tho.
asciilifeform: but otoh you gotta have perma-log.
asciilifeform: afaik nobody knows where to even begin resolving this knot,
trinque: it's why I said price access to archive, but then wtf is that too, can copy while access is had
asciilifeform: hence 0 sane archiver to this day.
trinque: and reason I'll yet grunt out a dht webthinger, central archives are nonsense
asciilifeform: trinque: if no independent mirrors, it's rubbish
trinque: still not bad for folks to cause themselves problems by doing things.
asciilifeform: so long as they don't tear hair out when it becomes clear that no, you can't charge for sunlight
shinohai: nestle charges for water so what
mircea_popescu: http://btcbase.org/log/2017-10-27#1729900 << why not do the thing scriba was doing originally, put in archive.is and save the zips ?☝︎

mircea_popescu: ah.

mircea_popescu: shinohai over a dollar a page, what is this.
mod6: i don't know if it is doing this any longer, or if it does zips or whatever. no idea.
shinohai: mircea_popescu: well obviously that *wasnt* real

a111: Logged on 2016-07-21 22:10 mircea_popescu: i suppose one thing we could do is change how a111 works so that on every outbout link posted here it a) makes an archive.is copy of thje page ; b) downloads the corresponding zip
a111: Logged on 2017-01-08 04:28 mircea_popescu: http://btcbase.org/log/2017-01-08#1598955 << just download the fucking archive.is archive zips already omygerd.
a111: Logged on 2017-07-14 16:53 mircea_popescu: http://btcbase.org/log/2017-07-14#1683501 >> that is the link in question, yes. it's be tremendously useful if it also had a copy of http://archive.is/download/nQLP9.zip stored somewhere.
mircea_popescu: i ~think~ it ~might~ have been implemented, to some degree at some point somwhere.
mircea_popescu: which is exactly the opposite of useful work.
mod6: aha
mircea_popescu: anyway, storage is about 2 fiatcents aka 300 or so satoshi per gb

trinque: whole log's worth of archive is, bet, one drive's worth at most
mircea_popescu: trinque idea being that there's a necessary and natural cut between log matter and linked matter.
mircea_popescu: the principal impediment to republican logging, atm, is that nobod yucan be arsed to write a html de-fucker ; there is one already written, by the archive.is dood, which spits out zips. the solutions then are either a) piggyback on that, which alf has (irresponsibly) been trying to obstruct throughout, and in the laughablest of manners or else b) make own, which will without exception require making own, and RIGHT NOW, not "n
mircea_popescu: ext week".
mircea_popescu: thatg aside, the more pressing problem is that we don't have a proper pdf-decrufter, (random moron with delusions of self-impoirtance failed to be useful, as you prolly recall), and if we're going to do something by hand this'd be more sorely needed than that.
trinque: sure, separate items. I was attacking the price and that which was priced.
mircea_popescu: between logotrons that reliably maintain the archive.is produced zips of any linked pages and a service which spits out text versions of pdfs (and youtube videos etc), to be also archived, we'd actually have a complete solution
mircea_popescu: perhaps a little fragile, but certainly fortifiable.
mircea_popescu: the only problem in all this is that i'm not willing to put "use archive.is" into the logger spec ; nor am i willing to go "write html-decrufter or die". so... we're FOSSing about.

mircea_popescu: wrt to scriba's archiving : it appears to be on now, and working since yesterday (26th). it did not work in the interval 10-25 october ; nor in the interval 2-8 october (limits included). so it for instance included http://btcbase.org/log/2017-10-27#1729704 but not http://btcbase.org/log/2017-10-25#1728494 and so following.☝︎☝︎

mircea_popescu: for a long time it was reliable, but so far in october it's about 10% up or so.
mircea_popescu: which means that even if we have 10 such loggers we'd still lose 16% or so of all links through simple coincidence at this level.

trinque: trilema in the model has a key, chatters to peers when something is published. peers retain or dont as their node is set, allow others to connect to retrieve items or dont as idem.
trinque: anybody recall directconnect? probably closer to what the thing oughta look like than say gnutella, but with a hierarchy of nodes instead of connecting to one station.
trinque will elaborate more after a necessary errand
