mircea_popescu: binturds are NOT unapproachable. they are very much as approachable as, eg, reversing ivory/bolix software. not necesarily as perfumed, but be that as it may.
mircea_popescu: i would much prefer to have a v-root for whatever bios, with the binary clearly laid out, so people with the competence can take it apart. ☟︎
mircea_popescu: rather than pretend alongside the usg tards it's an "insurmountable task". it's not. build the tools and spend the time, do your part to ruin wintel and with it the united states.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: in FG, i signed binturds that i ~generated~ ( e.g. jpeg of schematic )
mircea_popescu: so ?
mircea_popescu: a binturd is a binturd.
mircea_popescu: yes, yours is already reversed. the others aren't YET.
asciilifeform: it's a perfectly ordinary use of sig ( supposing one remembers to write proper disclaimer, 'i sign what i found , from wherever' ) . but not of v -- the diffs aren't meaningful
asciilifeform: iirc asciilifeform actually posted a binturd bios once, that he cracked ( for stinkpad x60 , which normally refuses aftermarket nic )
mircea_popescu: what you mean is "the diffs aren't directly meaningful" which is true, but also what can we do ?
mircea_popescu: indirectly meaningful diffs.
asciilifeform: they carry no meaning at all. change 1 byte and you get a turd every bit as large as the genesis.
mircea_popescu: v is still needed to manage the metadata on them. such as you know, the textfile explaining how to produce them and what (at least) portions say
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform the interesting part is where you change 1 byte and you get sony's copy protection in a new package.
asciilifeform: so genesis the text file, and it contains the turd hashes. this is what i did with fg.

asciilifeform: to say ? noshit, no
mircea_popescu: i can't answer for others, but i, a man with no particular place to go and no specific time to be there, find in general the approach endlessly entertaining. go into a two day loop through whatever lang's dict after having read a phrase in some classical work.

shinohai: http://time.com/5030829/uss-benfold-tug-boat-collision/
shinohai: yeah fuck Time
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform you'd love archeology by the way. half the job is "here's this pile of relations with no cognitive correlate. please explain."
mircea_popescu: usually this returns "religious artefact AND GET THE FUCK OUT OF MY OFFICE". understandably.
mircea_popescu: hermeneutics, amirite. "how to map complex structures".
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: reversing winturds, possibly surprisingly, is little different : a good 80% of the binturd has no arithmetical reason for being there
diana_coman: make a not that there are negative, "non-natural" numbers, what else is there to do, lol
asciilifeform: ( or greater %, if item is product of deliberate obfuscation, rather than merely microshit )
diana_coman: or a knot I suppose; note*
ben_vulpes: asciilifeform: the box that barfed uses gcc 5.4.0
shinohai: ben_vulpes: I had 0 luck until gcc 4.9.4
asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: linker in 5 is incompatible with 4, likely explains such cases
asciilifeform: the surest pill is simply not to have 5 on the box. at. all.
ben_vulpes: asciilifeform: i tried recently to build a chroot with 4 from the machine with 5 to no avail
asciilifeform: nao iirc there is finally a gnat built on 5. but i have not tried it, and can't yet think of a reason to try it
asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: once you have 5, yer pretty much phuqed
asciilifeform: faster to format the hdd and start again, than to try to manually separate the flies from the cutlets.
ben_vulpes: hey trinque do you still have that script for "infectious gentoo"? i might be able to get my old closet iron with 4.9 to build a respectable userland ☟︎
ben_vulpes: asciilifeform: yeah i have now pissed upon this electrified fence as well
ben_vulpes: i couldn't find a stage3 with 4.9 on it when i needed it for this machine, and so got 'phuqed'
ben_vulpes: republic really doesn't have repeatable steps for building a gentoo with gcc 4.9, does it ☟︎
ben_vulpes: "step 1: build a gentoo five years ago"
asciilifeform: better 10, lol
ben_vulpes: right?
asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: sure it does. use my useflags banlist, and include gcc >= 5
asciilifeform: !!up gabriel_laddel
deedbot: gabriel_laddel voiced for 30 minutes.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i am well aware, yeh
ben_vulpes: asciilifeform: i did that, but i believe that 5 snuck in from stage3. at the time i got loads of errors about 5 being present on the system in violation of use flag specification, attempted to purge but this did not result in a usable box somehow
mircea_popescu: o hey, ignoring flags nao ?
asciilifeform: stage3 method ( the only one supported by post-infiltration gentoo ) is a tar fulla binturds
asciilifeform: so no, flags dun help there.
ben_vulpes: more likely i made a mistake
ben_vulpes: oh, mistake was to stage3
mircea_popescu: ic
ben_vulpes: i don't really know how to apply your use flags to the creation of a new gentoo then. i do have an older gentoo box that is pretty faithful to the crapolade flags, has gcc but don't really have a map for making that produce a root fs that i can put on another box or what even the correct way to go about doing what i want to do
ben_vulpes: (gcc 4.9.4)
ben_vulpes: gabriel_laddel: what'd the lawyer say? ☟︎☟︎
asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: i'd like to find a pill for this problem that doesn't involve preserving a magic binturd in amber
asciilifeform: ( yes i could post a known-worked stage3. but eww )
ben_vulpes: yeah i have one of those as well but also ew
ben_vulpes: doesn't gcc itself count as a magic binturd?
asciilifeform: it does if you magicize a compiled gcc sure
asciilifeform: but notion of unix is that you can take whatever c compiler you got, and bootstrap
mircea_popescu: we have gcc 4.9.x source then ?
mircea_popescu: and for that matter, evidently "whaterver you got" dun include post wreckage gcc 5+
asciilifeform: aha. but you can't build it with 5, apparently.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform where is it ?
asciilifeform: mod6's mirror
asciilifeform: http://thebitcoin.foundation/trb-howto.html << grep for gcc
shinohai: Tis on shithub too https://github.com/gcc-mirror/gcc/releases/tag/gcc-4_9_4-release
mircea_popescu: !#s gcc mirror
a111: 2 results for "gcc mirror", http://btcbase.org/log-search?q=gcc%20mirror
asciilifeform: ' 0x17) Get http://deedbot.org/deed-427443-5.txt : name it 'gcc-4.9.2.tar.bz2.asc' '
asciilifeform: shinohai: fughet shithub
mircea_popescu: nice work mod6
asciilifeform: it's part of the rotor flow, gotta be there
mircea_popescu: aha.
shinohai: Ah yeah somehow I had forgotten that *DUH* is part of trb
asciilifeform: recall, original 'gcc5 is fatally touched' discovery happened on n00bz building rotors
mircea_popescu: yup
ben_vulpes: asciilifeform: couldja sketch how this pill might work for me?
asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: ideally would work on all known c compiler, and from there build gcc buildroot-style, and from there - world
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes ride the rotor train all the way to there then have it build whatever it is you're building.
asciilifeform: i've thought about investigating whether gcc4 can be made to build on fabrice bellard's tinycc
ben_vulpes: heh i was just reading about that
asciilifeform: which in turn builds on just about anything vaguely c-flavoured
ben_vulpes: makes elfs and everything
ben_vulpes: mircea_popescu: "whatever it is you're building" is "gentoo", and what goes into that is still a mystery to me
ben_vulpes: "babbys first linux distro"
ben_vulpes bbl
mircea_popescu: mmm, i dunno that we have a gentoo equivalent of this deeded anywhere.
mircea_popescu: aand in other cultural superiorities, https://archive.is/PYLfT#selection-857.111-863.79
asciilifeform: dafuq's that
mircea_popescu: huffpo
mircea_popescu: (to explain the lulz : huffpo penned piece about gervais, whio's still active and who did whatever huffpo-demo interest item recently ; upon deciding they want to write it up they proceeded to "do research" in "depth" as such works ; as it happens trilema owns millions of "long tail" items, including as the case is here whatever-they-searched-about either cemetery junction or gervais or some combination of other words. eviden
mircea_popescu: tly did not read the article, but hey.)
mircea_popescu: the point being that the pantsuit machine RELIES on there not existing toxicitems in the environment, because the whole thing is so least-effort driven as to directly uptake them if present.
asciilifeform: it reads like perlade
mircea_popescu: as opposed to which part of libertard discourse ?
asciilifeform: as opposed to where they still have meat in the loop
asciilifeform: ( pre-'millenial' meat )
mircea_popescu: this is perl-on-suto aka "graduate student"
mircea_popescu: this is what the empire is.
asciilifeform: deedbot removes voice from gabriel_laddel << poor d00d, must've amputated hands nao, not only feet
mircea_popescu: in other lulz, looking through logs we notice trilema served 1.5mn pages... earlier today, during four hours or so. this is usually a week or two's worth.
mircea_popescu: so ima have to alter that http://btcbase.org/log/2017-11-18#1740276 to moar like 50k to reflect this new record. ☝︎
a111: Logged on 2017-11-18 15:58 mircea_popescu: http://btcbase.org/log/2017-11-17#1740127 << i wouldn't be too worried, trilema serves up to 5k simultaneous connections off a single box.
asciilifeform: lol all wp pingback ddosolade ?
asciilifeform: or not all
mircea_popescu: superficially seems like all sorts ; kinda not have the time now to feed a quarter gb log through summarizer.
mircea_popescu: anyway, over 1TB burned, month half way. blog infrastructure liek bitcoin infrastructure in more ways than one.

mircea_popescu: in other grandeurs, this place is a bona fida meteorological observatory. i sat over pasta and watched a complete cloud system move across the sky. here the sky's blue, here's the coming cloud front, there's rain...
pete_dushenski: sounds a lot like teh prairies except in cr you can't see spot running away for weeks

asciilifeform: and kanzure's bch satellite.
pete_dushenski: asciilifeform: how'd you approach the problem of frequently updated blockheight on the wrist ? well, "problem"...
pete_dushenski: it's gedankenexperiment
asciilifeform: shortwave. from festung mircea_popescustein's 500kW transmitter.
asciilifeform: wearer's body as antenna.
pete_dushenski: so wouldn't update if owner took off to, say, take a shower ?
asciilifeform: nope
asciilifeform: why wouldja care what it does when yer not wearing it
asciilifeform: it's a clock.
asciilifeform: connect to stationary antenna if you must have it show output on yer desk.
pete_dushenski: aha
pete_dushenski: ya, i was thinking of desk scenario
pete_dushenski: stationary antenna worx
