mircea_popescu: somehow the "small" and "prosperous" relationship, as in, "for as long as you're not overpopulated, you can be prosperous" is not-evident to the pantsuit fans of iceland.
mircea_popescu: "how about culling 95% of us pop ? then can be small and prosperous nation ?"
mircea_popescu: god know it fucking was prosperous back when it was small enough.
BingoBoingo: Seriously. Imagine if China got into the biodiesel business.
mircea_popescu: they could write all the articles about binshinmindwin or however you call "Small and prosperous nation of middle-of-nowherica" you could possibly want.
BingoBoingo: I mean, culturally Argentina and Uruguay are similar stock. But there is a palpable difference between the people of both places assembled and individually.

gabriel_laddel doesn't care about 'white', but just so happens WMD (white male doctor) is far more talented than stanford semetic strange

a111: Logged on 2017-12-29 21:30 mircea_popescu: here's a problem i perceive phf : you could guess about log(n) of my understanding of various things that interest me on the basis of reading trilema ; i could not guess epsilon of thge say your understanding of sbcl on the basis of reading whatever you provide voluntarily. i could glean it from this kind of interaction, but here's what that means : http://btcbase.org/log/2017-12-29#1760839
mircea_popescu: i can't, on the basis of that video, infer anything beyond, "hey, if we ever want to upload a youtube video with apologies about some software, maybe gabriel_laddel is free"
gabriel_laddel: well for one, I'm not really prepared to sell M to the mass market & recently reached the conclusion that CLIM is backwards in a few fixable ways. #1, commands are to be computed by code walking rather than define-command & by using (declare) and FUNCTION-LAMBDA-LIST
mircea_popescu: yes, but did you follow either asciilifeform or diana_coman 's approach to a very similar problem ?
mircea_popescu: to wit, "computer algebra is broken in a few fixable ways" ; "digital cryptography is broken in a few fixable ways" ?
gabriel_laddel: FTR: what I bring to the table is the closest thing to LISPM available, and direction + productive discussion for those already down the rabbit hole. Non-alices need not apply.
gabriel_laddel: mircea_popescu: I have not followed anything diana_coman has done, whatsoever.
gabriel_laddel: will read her blog in full tonight tho
mircea_popescu: well, either / both of them work for the purpose here.
mircea_popescu: in other words : republican methodology for improving software, that was slowly swirling towards systematisation down the drain of v turned exponential / made some major breakthroughs in the past six weeks or so.
mircea_popescu: many problems that previously had poor or altogether no solution are essentially resolved now as a result.
gabriel_laddel: I am catching up on logs now, but until now have not bought into V whatsoever.
gabriel_laddel: In my mind, lispm, or interlisp editor + fixed clim comes first. hence, have been following that route
mircea_popescu: well, that's the fundamental problem here, you were left stranded.

mircea_popescu: why would these be separate ?
Troika: In case the business changes hands or similar.
mircea_popescu: it's personal tax, if the business changes hands you realise whatever you realise and that's that.
Troika: Alright thanks -- back to lurking now, keep up the good work.
mircea_popescu: to put it in other words : the republic does not deem corporatyions to be persons. a corporation can't owe tax for the exact same reason the united states government can't be sovereign.

danielpbarron: it's finite in the sense that they eventually print so much it isn't worth anything anymore
asciilifeform: printolade is a device for 'bloodless', quiet remote theft.
ReadErr: theft of immaterial things ?

asciilifeform: when you sell something for, e.g., dollar, you are in effect giving it away to the folks with the printing press.

ReadErr: something just kinda clicked in my head

asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: nope. it was resolved in the correct way ('give the vtron the obvious hint , i.e. sanely named files , that turns the problem from o(n^2) into o(n)' )
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform question is, on the practical score why not rule out unacceptable sigs first ; and more in the general... well...
phf: well, i for one love his sicp-ish captured context lambda classes!
asciilifeform: what means 'rule out'
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform when building a tree, first load up the sig folder, then apply it as a mask on the patch folder, then proceed building with only the patches that passed.
asciilifeform: turning a dump truck full of ???!?$$??? that you found on the street, that contains some parts valid v-sigs, patches, and some parts chicken shit -- into a purely valid v-tree , is o(n^2). but q is why to permit the dump truck situation to begin with.
asciilifeform: there's no practical reason to.
mircea_popescu: nevermind that, i'm asking about his algo
asciilifeform: right, his algo follows 'dump truck' model. my orig one -- did not, it did exactly as mircea_popescu describes.
mircea_popescu: (not a great lisper myself, but it seems to me here he got caught in the "since i won't be implementing the posix and gnupg bs yet, im not going to put the thing dependent on tyhem at its right place either, because i wanna fuck myself over")
phf: the way btcbase does it is first pairs all patches by name (following our convention, but next by subst distance), processes those and what's left over is brute forced. algo though was implemented back when naming convention was in flux, so in practice it's o(n), but in reality it could approach o(n^2) if patch bucket is full of shit

mircea_popescu: anyway -- an alien problem is a problem with a banal retrospective solution that doesn't exist. it works well for fiction, where one can say "and on planet x, people all walked with their nose in a clothespin, then our hero came in, told them to ditch the clothespins, AND THEREFORE WAS A HERO. AND IS!" ie, establishing shot.
BingoBoingo: Perhaps the histamine overload is finally getting to fleanode
mircea_popescu: but the fact that such a planet could never exist is left unadressed -- the needs of fiction are fictive.

trinque: "oh deary me, please don't rape me sir"
ben_vulpes: nearly tumblr rape gimpwork grade
ben_vulpes: https://rapeaxe.files.wordpress.com/2017/03/cropped-21.jpg also
trinque: clearly the definition of rape has by now expanded to "woman, shut the hell up!"
shinohai: You don't even have to speak, trinque .... telepathic rape occurs if you masturbate while thinking of her without her consent.
trinque: by that logic all of reddit just lost its virginity
shinohai: lel
ben_vulpes: eye contact also offensive
ben_vulpes: that is one of the nicest things about this little town that i've moved to, all of the girls make eye contact and act feminine

danielpbarron: there's a bunch of ongoing projects in here, and ADA is a prefered language
danielpbarron: you can search the logs for all sorts of references
ben_vulpes: so jpxe what sorta adastuffs are you working on
danielpbarron: he was asking for a job so i asked if he had tits, he didn't, so i said do you know lisp or ada
danielpbarron: i guess he's gonna learn himself some ada, or lisp if anyone wants. feel free to instruct him
asciilifeform: start him with the obvious starting point ?
ben_vulpes: jpxe: start at http://www.loper-os.org/?p=1913

asciilifeform: some of diana_coman's lines are even longer than 120col
asciilifeform: comments, i suppose, can be reflowed. but CODE DOES NOT REFLOW, it destroys indentation

asciilifeform: inefficiency are bad for Lisp, which would have done it a lot better had it been in control, but GUILE doesn't do it any better. GUILE combines the worst of both worlds, in an attempt to bring the best of one world to a world where it doesn't really belong. on top of this, it's Scheme, and it's expensive to run, there's so much wrong with it that nobody can use it without fixing some part of it. so, it's going to be a winner, but
asciilifeform: a real Lisp world would be so much better. however, a real Lisp world cannot win as long as GUILE is the image people have of a Lisp environment, just like Lisp has suffered tremendously from the Scheme people's insistence that Scheme as taught to college students is what they should expect from Lisp.'
diana_coman: asciilifeform, tbh lines chopped tend to bother me; I repeatedly tried (years/ages ago) the whole thing with 80cols, quick to read etc but... it still bothers me, what can I do; that being said, I see there long comments line not code; possibly some printfs in the tests that might be long I suppose
asciilifeform: more or less all prog langs give a clean way to multilineize strings
asciilifeform: ( rather than arbitrary 'chop' )
diana_coman: multi-line is still chop the way my brain reads
diana_coman: I do try to keep otherwise lines relatively short mainly because no reason for very long but that in code not in comments, admitted; and certainly not with some strict 80 char limit per se, true
asciilifeform as you can see from the pic, uses vertical displays. and when reading serious proggy , tends to send it to printer ! which - guesswhat - doesn't know how to reflow ( and if it did, would mangle indent and create unreadable soup )
diana_coman: hm
asciilifeform: diana_coman: i am one of those weirdos who still does a large amt of his programming -- and the bulk of his code-reading -- on paper.
diana_coman: I do a lot of code-reading WITH paper + pencil; but that means more writing than printing really
asciilifeform: writing yes
asciilifeform: generally my page will in the end have ~equal area of pencilmark and printerola
asciilifeform: (at least.)
diana_coman: and paper+writing a lot before any need for keyboard, but I still get annoyed at multi-line stuff that is ... one thing otherwise, ugh
diana_coman has just cleared desk again getting rid of a pile of papers used for this ch4
asciilifeform: and speaking of this, asciilifeform is almost certainly doomed to properly texize ffa in the end. there are so few things more loathesome than reading MECHANICALLY REFLOWED code. whether line flow or page breaks.
diana_coman: basically this would make some sense only if writing code in columns pretty much newspaper style I suppose
asciilifeform: publishers used to pay professionals to do this. and it ~needed~ doing. whereas today one will routinely find 'technical' b00kz that look exactly like microshit-'word' printouts bound and covered, with line and page breaks scattered entirely arbitrarily
asciilifeform: it is very grating on the nerves, to read such crapola
phf: in a proper program 80 col is an indicator of s/n, density and all kinds of lateral properties, that can be communicated between professionals, because you can know ahead of time, what you're dealing with by shape, and have a rough estimate for the token count
asciilifeform: ^^^
asciilifeform: it makes the 'loc' metric meaningful AT ALL to begin with, for starters !
diana_coman: I suspect all of it, one way or the other IS a matter of habit really; it might even be that I simply programmed overall too little compared to reading non-programming (programmed at school+uni+few years after that and then ran for the hills until I got drawn back because eulora)
asciilifeform: iirc diana_coman started as a mathematician , neh ?
asciilifeform: !!up Matthew
deedbot: Matthew voiced for 30 minutes.
Matthew: tyvm
asciilifeform: who might you be, Matthew ?
Matthew: im Matthew from efnet news
phf: it is habit, and convention and all kinds of easily iconoclastible things. for example i can usually recognize a proper lisp program by its shape, but those are usually written by people who have established those conventions to begin with
Matthew: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tNXyichewJw
asciilifeform: phf: aha, i can always and immediately spot somebody who did not use slime or equivalent autoindenter
Matthew: thank for allowing me to spam this podcast
diana_coman: asciilifeform, no, not really; studied at polytechnic uni Bucharest, automation and computers i.e. electrical engineer; followed with data mining and that got totally fed up after "software engineering"
Matthew: is daniel around
Matthew: i wantd to talk to him
asciilifeform: danielpbarron ?
Matthew: yes
asciilifeform: Matthew: hang around for a few hrs, he will probably come back
Matthew: ill hang around forever

asciilifeform: Matthew: if you are looking for something danielpbarron said some time earlier, there is the log , http://btcbase.org/log
danielpbarron: Matthew, what's up
asciilifeform: diana_coman: neato.
asciilifeform: from what asciilifeform has seen, life is often quite hard for actual-engineers who end up in programmerdom. sorta like shalamov's observation re folx from baltics, not only better-nutritioned and taller to begin with ( by itself gives higher 'idle rpm' ) but whose daily life was 'farther from gulag' , starved sooner than ru folx ( in particular rural )
