mircea_popescu: you mean the butterflies ? iirc these only eat milkweed
BingoBoingo: Nah I mean with the butterflies there I refrained from gassing the stinkbugs. They crawled from the milkweed to the tomato cages to transform.

BingoBoingo: Anyways musl servering is going well, building a trb on the box because gotta test for republican standards compliance.
mircea_popescu: you never published the server order list.
mircea_popescu: that's the top priority, else we'll be paying for an empty rack while the endless doodling goes about with getting servers delivered.
BingoBoingo: I haven't recieved it. I'm going to poke them again now.
mircea_popescu: and in case it's not obvious: there's a MAJOR opportunity here for someone wanting to deliver a service for pay. why is nobody advertising "i will produce boxes and ship them to bb" ? have "the boundless blablas" buffett assigned to america died QUITE that dead ?
BingoBoingo: Someone here has to need a vacation, mircea_popescu might be the only other person in the republic with better weather scheduled for the next two months.
asciilifeform: this is mildly reminiscent of the 'hand-delivery for FG service' thread
mircea_popescu: it is ?
asciilifeform: maybe i'm thick, but , let's say mircea_popescu wants a server magicked into existence. would he want to pay the cost of a asciilifeform-carries-in-suitcase-in-airplane-to-BingoBoingoistan in the cost of said box ?
trinque: idea of this is nonsense. why don't I contract with latechco directly for a 1U if I have to do that
mircea_popescu: trinque for me not for you!
mircea_popescu: if i want 5 boxes, what do i do now ?
trinque: I'm definitely not flying a box to bbisp
mircea_popescu: what's wrong with fedexing it!
asciilifeform: possibly nothing. or possibly argentina-style problem. ( anybody tried yet ? )
asciilifeform: hey mircea_popescu recall my fedex to ro ?
mircea_popescu: notrly ?
trinque: guy's talking about vacations. shipping has been plan B if there's no machines to acquire on the spot
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: the orig prototype rng
mircea_popescu: trinque i have been pushing him to produce me a list of machiens that can be bought for what, three weeks now ? six ?
trinque is on the same page, wants the list
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i recall getting that ?
mircea_popescu: had a battery tackon and erryhing.
trinque has been a pretty vocal interested party in a 1U for a while
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: you did. and how it took , what , whole month on top of the Officially specced <week , and showed signs of passing through who knows what ordeals
mircea_popescu: indeed.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform which is what i'm saying!
mircea_popescu: $900 writeoff for "expert" that didn;t as much as write on her tits, now $3k write-off for "month of pulling dick atop empty rack", the joys of business over here.

mircea_popescu: i am exaggerating for to make the point.
asciilifeform thinks he grasps

asciilifeform: aaha.
mod6: Can I get in on that fg order?
mod6: I wanna send like 4 down there.
mircea_popescu: mod6 i think ima just get s.nsa to make bbisp an offer buy some to have on hand.
asciilifeform: oh hey, mod6's doubly-tested fg !
mircea_popescu: or you mean send your own ?
asciilifeform: mod6 oughta charge a markup
trinque: BingoBoingo: pls to send shipping address my way as well
mod6: lol, i didn't mean mine no. but i guess i could do that.
mod6: i'd be fine with the ones that are alreday down there though.
mircea_popescu: mod6 imo it's counterproductive to do it that way ; but each his own
asciilifeform: mod6: i dunget it then, what does your 'in' consist of
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform that he eventually wants to have the infrastructure down there for his own boxen
asciilifeform: aaa
mod6: Just was thinking I'd be/foundation would probably be happy to purchase 4 from whatever gets shipped down to bb.
asciilifeform: i dun see any reason for'em not to travel already installed inside boxen
mod6: yes, mircea_popescu. exactly.
trinque is trying to not let the ad hoc process here rustle his jimmies
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform possibly because other parties assemble teh boxes.
mod6: fair point asciilifeform
mircea_popescu: trinque by all means, let it rustle.
mircea_popescu: the whole point of this public company is that.
mircea_popescu: check out new meaning of PUBLIC company coined in tmsr forum!
asciilifeform: ( they are readily inserted in most rackable boxen that have internal usb port , but if it's a 1u then you need a 90degree adapter for the plug )
asciilifeform: and some doublesided stickytape.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform are you basically willing to sit on newegg/amazon/whatever and package boxes to mail over ?
asciilifeform: no reason why not
mircea_popescu: also go over there if fedex turns to shit ?
asciilifeform: supposing that it is actually necessary, and those heathen outfits would not ship straight to bb
mircea_popescu: ^ guy somehow managed to get a boxful of pogos through customz.
trinque: well for starters, when I get a quote out of folks for something that's 200 cheaper than another quote, oughta be understood that I'm helping the damned negotiation. that was annoying.
asciilifeform: and why not go. i'd actually much like to bring the three s.nsa boxen over with own hands
trinque: if not what, trinque's playing some game?
mircea_popescu: trinque i deliberately didn't want to hussle on the price ; i don't want THOSE $200. but it was understood.
trinque: ah ok
mircea_popescu: trust in the non-idiocy of the lordship, you will rarely be disappointed.
trinque haggles like an indian, but I see it
mircea_popescu: i don't because i want them to have a vested interest in sucking my cock.

mircea_popescu: what i don't want is to leak 10x the sum to unrelated third party scammer-whores, ie whores that don't even strip.
asciilifeform: where mircea_popescu gave a picture, 'i'ma buy a 6th item in the place that has the correct 1-5 already, and even for moar dough'
trinque: stated as it is, I get it
mircea_popescu bought tyres + inner tubes at place which had shorter "guarantia" and charged slightly more than place which did not offer the inner tubes. "why not just buy tubes and take them to other place ? they said they'd do it" "stfu"
mircea_popescu: was regaled with the most incredible display of local competency ; indeed global competency ever encountered. three kids switched out and back in five tyres in like 12 minutes.
mircea_popescu: they talked so fucking fast I HAD TO TELL THEM TO SLOW DOWN FOR ME! I!!!
mircea_popescu: i've... not even ever said that before.
mircea_popescu: i think with some minimal tweaks that shop could go on the f1 trackside.
asciilifeform: neato.

phf: mircea_popescu: our current strategy with architecture support has been "it works on my machine, but if you want it to work on your machine submit a vpatch", and it's been pretty consistently applied (e.g. my openbsd patch that's been floating independently, despite never getting vpatched).
mircea_popescu: obviously one could patch the eucrypt to work on his box if for some reason he wants to (though i can't imagine who'd be running eulora client of ppc machine, but anyways).
mircea_popescu: the interesting point here is the mandate, ie, do you actually object to our saying "bignum is evil and get rid of it"
phf: so while i think lack of bigendian will create immediate problems for people (e.g. no vdiff/vpatch on g5 machines for trinque, untill he patches it himself), i don't think it's not historically supported
mircea_popescu: ugh. bigendian.
asciilifeform finds that he agrees with phf : like it or not, a good % of the cheap and effective older iron that is and will remain in use in tmsr , specifically in opposition to x86ism, is big-endian.
phf: i find all arguments pro or cons unconvincing, as encoded by elders i nthe very name, which is a reference to gulliver's travels
phf: it's a completely arbitrary decision, that has a bunch of cons and pros based on time, hardware, architecture, etc. etc. big iron used to be bigendian, micros were primarily little endian, both for reasons
mircea_popescu: hm.
asciilifeform: i also agree with mircea_popescu in re ~new~ cpu design having no business being byte-addressing and having a detectable endianism orientation AT ALL.
asciilifeform: but we dun have a cpu fab yet.
mircea_popescu: phf so you are actually saying that there's some kind of way to look at the situation that has both endian notations stand on equality footing ?
phf: right, i'm more saying that neither have merit, and the only reason there's a narrative is because you have to have one or the other, and by nature of having both in theory you have both in practice
mircea_popescu: but don't you find that one's logically consistent whereas the other's logically inconsistent ?
mircea_popescu: in smallendian notation, for every subset of bits however selected, they will be found before an equally sized subset of higher order bits and after an equally sized subset of lower order bits.
mircea_popescu: in bigendian notation, ~SOME~ subsets of bits will be found before an equally sized subset of higher order bits and after an equally sized subset of lower order bits ; and ~SOME~ the other way ; and what the magic size cutoff is VARIES.
asciilifeform: sad phakt : this is also true on little-endian box -- at least if you watch the bits go over e.g. serial port.
mircea_popescu: but this is a problem of display not of ontology, on small endian box.
mircea_popescu: the fact that you choose to have your ide replace all ifs with :-) is your fucking problem.
asciilifeform: there does not exist this separation, in reality, between display and ontology.

phf: mircea_popescu: i don't think it makes sense to talk about bit order on any of the architectures that we're discussing, since you can only address by bytes. big endian systems could have little endian bytes and you would never know, likewise little endian systems could have big endian bytes and you would never know. logically though there's no reason you can't view big endian to be a bit reverse of little endian
mircea_popescu: i don't agree that implementation limits my power of representation.
mircea_popescu: i can discuss bit order irrespective of the fact that systems implement byte addressing. i must.
phf: well, then you can't arbitrarily say that big endian system is illogical because it has little endian bit order but big endian byte order.
mircea_popescu: are you actually saying "well mp, ~maybe~ bits exist outside of anyone looking at them, but sure as fuck they do not exist outside of bytes, as currently the situation stands" ?

asciilifeform: and fwiw i NEVER restart a node unless it actually crashed ( and it's been some yrs since last case of this ), why would you destroy valuable info re an actual-stuck eggog
mod6: well, probably wasn't "stuck" just takig a long time or whatever.
asciilifeform: how long is long
asciilifeform: and what is it doing
mod6: i dunno 10 hours
asciilifeform: e.g. sitting and processing tx, and simply nobody gave it any new blocks ?
asciilifeform: ... or still verifying something, and doing nothing at all, not responding to commands, etc ?
asciilifeform: gotta be specific re what node is doing. word 'stuck' is not very useful.
mod6: <+asciilifeform> e.g. sitting and processing tx, and simply nobody gave it any new blocks ? << yes, looks this way. was heavily loading the mempool with shit
mod6: if it does it again, we'll take a look
mod6: node is catching back up now
asciilifeform: observe also that even 'aggressive' trb only demands newblox when a peer ~connects~
asciilifeform: rather than constantly
mod6: yeah, strangely i only had like 4 connections; even with -myip being set to external ip
ben_vulpes: BingoBoingo: is the 22% actually "we have declared the value of this thing to be $maxint, and now pay $maxint * .22 or never see your gear again"?
mod6: but *shrug* maybe it just needed longer to talk to others. it had only been up for a little while at that point.
BingoBoingo: ben_vulpes: That I am asking around on and seeking clarification about.
BingoBoingo: A common recurring answer is they don't know because everyone they know goes to Miama with one bag and returns home with 5-10
mircea_popescu: heh
ben_vulpes: how the fuck are uruguayan bordermeat going to price an xserve anyways
asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: if you're especially unlucky -- by googling and finding a usg purchase quote from $bigvendor
asciilifeform: from 2005 or whenever.
mircea_popescu: lel
phf: "computer parts $20"
phf: i thought that was standard procedure for shipping international?
mod6: ok 3 blocks behind, now just doing a bunch of mem pool stuff. we'll see if it falls back behind
asciilifeform: phf: worx with variable success. didn't , for instance, for FG to diana_coman
phf: yes, that's cause fg looks like some mil spec shit. you just needed to put inside a cheap plastic box and stencil "fax modem" on it
mircea_popescu: lmao
mircea_popescu: honestly, i have great faith in alf's capacity to cross items.
asciilifeform: mod6: at the risk of repeating myself : don't babysit nodes. if it genuinely 'gets stuck', and not merely on account of poor block propagation at the particular time you are watching -- it is potentially serious problem, and you want debug info . if on other hand it is a chronic situation, you want to instrument the thing with timers, find out where it spends time.
mircea_popescu: he has i guess the honest man's face.
asciilifeform: mod6: at no point does babysitting-and-restarting-blindly accomplish anything useful.
mod6: it's just been since april 5th. so im kinda excited.
asciilifeform: phf: in my experience the magic word is 'commercial sample for demo'. but only worx with suitcases.
asciilifeform: dunwork so much with parcels in the post. because otherwise 'erryone would write it'
phf: asciilifeform: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sez_-UoRudg
asciilifeform: lol
asciilifeform: that's approx it.

phf: shinohai: here's a service you could provide: bouncers for sluts :) i believe e.g. znc supports multi-tenant
Techman: rip some of the idle folks from lrh
mod6: lol @ #11
phf: Techman: well, i did say sluts, not "peanut gallery". most of freenode channels seem to consist of 2-3 useful folk and the 20-30 backsit yes men.
Techman: Are you sure you meant to direct that @ me? I'm talking about the housecleaning that shinohai is doing
phf: oh oh
phf: well, to be fair i'm sure i mean to direct that at you, but what you said wasn't directed at me.
shinohai: phf was going to, maybe when more sluts arrive. I thought emmylark was under the auspices of mircea_popescu
trinque: people don't show up at some empty lot hungry and then later there's a restaurant
shinohai: aha
trinque was saying to build teh restaurant
shinohai: yeah i got that part

mod6: hey! cool asciilifeform
asciilifeform: mod6: you'll like this one.
asciilifeform: ( it gives answer to the 'make auto tests' homework from ch8 )
mod6: i like the perf charts too. always helps to have numbers & charts.
mod6: omg it is so hard not to babysit this thing after a year of babysitting.
mod6: im like glued to this debug log
phf: asciilifeform: so i spent a long time on your homework since it's a kind of trick question, but the naive solution that you've provided will not always produce True for obvious reasons.
phf: asciilifeform: i.e. ??``[(let ((a #x]#[) (b #x]#[) (c #x]*#[) (sz #x].0.1-#[)) (= (nth-value 0 (truncate (* a b) (1+ sz))) c))]
asciilifeform: phf: chew this apart for me ?
asciilifeform: phf: why didja truncate to the ffa bitness ?
asciilifeform: observe that * produces ~two~ FZ onto the stack, not one.
asciilifeform: and that the python example uses both of'em, to test the entire width of the multiplier. and works.
asciilifeform: !!up pehbot

asciilifeform: ^ e.g.
mircea_popescu: behold, that there was an empty lot with a lot of hungry people in it that then later became a restaurant.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: 'underlying problem' link in your latest piece, eggogs
