asciilifeform: oh hah deedbot hates orcograms dunnit.
mircea_popescu: lol romns!
asciilifeform: who knew!
asciilifeform: i gotta admit, i picture them as units, like e.g. rems
asciilifeform: 'he was exposed to 300 gRomns, expired in convulsions'
mircea_popescu: "lost all his vaginal teeth and instestinal hairs"
asciilifeform: aaha!
asciilifeform noticed that the ro_eng_ascii.txt w4r3z was a mega-popular item in the machine log , for quite some time, and so went to put this flag on it.
asciilifeform: the item mircea_popescu gave, 'dex', is also on the conveyor, but will prolly have to wait for peacetime
mircea_popescu: di provenza il mar, il suol...
asciilifeform: aaha
mircea_popescu: aaand in other "guess what sf ideas i got", what if females had no tits, but instead they grew these almond-sized blobs of semi-hard fat on their neck, sorta like corn nibblets on the cobb, and kids just you know, nibbled their neck.
mircea_popescu: sorta grow from one spot and fall out overripe from another.
asciilifeform: pretty sure there is >1 species of fish where -- this
mircea_popescu: possibru
mircea_popescu: imagine the cloud of parasites, you know ?
asciilifeform: for some reason all that comes to mind tho is that 1 fish where the ~male~ attaches, parasitizes, and jettisons the now-useless fins, mouth, arse, digestive tract, etc
mircea_popescu: humans may be headed that way.
asciilifeform: lol
mircea_popescu: what'd even be called, mothercurd ?
lobbes: Added sha1 checksum values for the .zips to show in archive search results >> http://lobbesblog.com/queryarchive/view.php?searchterm=example&sortby=

mircea_popescu: !!up xenmen_
deedbot: xenmen_ voiced for 30 minutes.
xenmen_: thanks mircea_popescu, just reading up on your site
mircea_popescu: aha ?
xenmen_: I come by ~once a year, an annual tradition, to reread
mircea_popescu: how long does it take you to catch up ?
xenmen_: typically a weekend
mircea_popescu: seems an incredible feat.
xenmen_: (The catch-up, that is; rereading older material I spread over a few weeks to a month)

shinohai: but in mircea_popescu's original, I also see strange things
shinohai: http://trilema.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/12/dicelist-romanian.txt
asciilifeform: is it in some ancient pre-uniturd coding, analogous to ru koi8 ?
asciilifeform: hard to picture how else it could end up like this.
spyked: hm. it seems that the browser (firefox on my side) sets default encoding to "western" for plain txt files; setting it to unicode makes it look normal
shinohai: lol
asciilifeform: hmm in different browser, worx
asciilifeform: http://www.loper-os.org/?p=2186&cpage=1#comment-19118 << in other noose.
ave1: I see you are already at ch9, I only just finished with ch1: http://ave1.org/2018/on-ffa-chapter-1/.
asciilifeform: thinking of switching to a 2week interval; these are not coming out quite the way i want'em
asciilifeform: http://www.loper-os.org/?p=2186&cpage=1#comment-19121 << in other noose.
asciilifeform: shinohai: i have added a link to your mirror in http://www.loper-os.org/?p=2211 , ty
ave1: I'm enjoying the series a lot! (I've now just read ch2 and starting to ingest it...)
asciilifeform: ave1: were you able to build ?
ave1: asciilifeform, yes! also on gnat for musl...
asciilifeform: ooh yeah i recall
asciilifeform still has not replicated this marvel
ave1: In the end it took only a small set of changes, but finding these was no fun...
ave1: Ofcourse, I did not want to dive deep into the code of gcc and gnat
asciilifeform: we're doomed to fork gnat eventually
asciilifeform: if only because of http://btcbase.org/log/2017-11-29#1743984 .☝︎
a111: Logged on 2017-11-29 01:38 asciilifeform yet again, for 3rd time in 2 yrs, attempted and failed to build a 'zero foot print runtime' for gnat -- to abolish the 3MB of liquishit it shits into every executable.
ave1: Which makes the process a stupid trying / building / running / failing exercise.
asciilifeform: ave1: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-01-29#1777969 << can i persuade you to put this link in a comment to ch1 ?☝︎
a111: Logged on 2018-01-29 15:46 ave1: I see you are already at ch9, I only just finished with ch1: http://ave1.org/2018/on-ffa-chapter-1/.
asciilifeform: for other readers.
asciilifeform: ave1: 'Word is the smallest unit used for the arithmetic in FFA' is not strictly true, there is a HalfWord ( see ch9 )
asciilifeform: but i suppose you'll get to it at own pace.
asciilifeform: ( not to mention WBool, present in ch1, is constrained to arithmetize on 1bit. but indeed Word is smallest physical unit used, there is no byte-addressing in ffa )
asciilifeform: 'why not use the pragma Provide_Shift_Operators?' << it doesn't work on gnat2016, try it
asciilifeform: "Do we need Word_Index or Indices?8". << yes, for proof of nonoverflow. and in general wherever i saw it possible to constrain a type, i constrained it. and will continue doing so.
asciilifeform: 'Look at the summation, the sum is (A+B) + Carry, but the next carry is determined by just A, B and the Sum. Are we lucky this is correct?' << work it out on paper.
ave1: I did! it is more a question for other readers
asciilifeform: btw ave1 your comment box dunwork
asciilifeform: demands 'fill in name and email' even when i already did.
asciilifeform: ave1: 'are we lucky this is correct' implies that item was written through the arse, and only 'works by accident', this is not so.
ave1: aha, I made the check for the email to a check for the website (needs to be 6 chars long)
ave1: I'll remove the website check, probable does not do much anyway
ave1: one moment...
asciilifeform: lemme know when fixed
ave1: should be fixed
asciilifeform: nope
asciilifeform: 'required fields: name'
asciilifeform: it's utterly broken
ave1: Will work on wording! It was meant as "Take very good care to check out this one"
asciilifeform: I FILLED IN THE FIELDS
ave1: I see change did happen, but still failed the test, one sec...
ave1: I'm sorry for this
asciilifeform: lemme know when it is possible to put a comment..
asciilifeform: ave1: the comment itself : http://wotpaste.cascadianhacker.com/pastes/3z67x/?raw=true
ave1: asciilifeform: Comments should work now, I can also put this comment in if you like (name == asciilifeform?)
asciilifeform: 1s
asciilifeform: still broken !!
asciilifeform: 'required fields: name'
asciilifeform: pleez test it yourself ave1 ? then say 'fixed'
asciilifeform: and no, do not put it in in my place.
asciilifeform: fix the commentbox.
ave1: I did self eval... (did you reload?)
asciilifeform: ok seems to work nao...
asciilifeform: (queued)
asciilifeform: or...
asciilifeform: WHERE THE FUCK DID MY LINK GO
asciilifeform: srsly this is nogood.
shinohai: tah asciilifeform !
ave1: Was queued is now approved
asciilifeform: 'TODAY'S LOG' IS A LINK
asciilifeform: !!up xenmen
deedbot: xenmen voiced for 30 minutes.
ave1: I do not get "TODAY'S LOG' IS A LINK" ...
asciilifeform: ave1: please see the paste ?
asciilifeform: ave1: html links do not work in your comment box ?
asciilifeform: i do not understand why you would have both 'ban links' AND premoderation
ave1: Hmm, I'm using mp-wp and I cannot find a setting that is supposed to scrub links or allow them. I am looking into it...
asciilifeform: hey you're ahead of me, i never even got comments to work at all in my copy of mp-wp
asciilifeform would like to see a complete wwwtron in ada. but does not have any spare arms presently for such a thing.
asciilifeform: and when i say 'complete' i mean zero-libraries, a la ffa. kernel calls for i/o, and that's it.
ave1: Meanwhile, I'll fix the links, also I found the problem will report a little later
asciilifeform: ty ave1 , i'd definitely like to read the answer
shinohai: "Fitness app lights up staff @ mil bases" is best headline in feed today.
trinque: kinda laughable notion that the location of .mil bases was secret
asciilifeform: iirc there's a few in e.g. africa disguised as 'uh, nuffin at all here, move along'
asciilifeform: and in various post-su lands
asciilifeform: e.g. the torture palace in bucharest
trinque: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-01-29#1777911 << not at the moment. when my stack's popped to ffa will try to do my homework on one of the g5s☝︎
a111: Logged on 2018-01-29 01:14 asciilifeform: !~later tell trinque do you have a working gnat on ppc (g5 or any other) ?
asciilifeform: trinque: actually i was hoping to get a shell on one of your ppc
asciilifeform: for own use
asciilifeform: ( i could buy an old ppc , a la BingoBoingo , for fiddybux, but i'd like to go in direction of ~decreasing~ old iron collection, not growing... )
trinque: ah, I could set that up later in the week. going to be traveling starting tomorrow.
asciilifeform: no rush.
trinque: want g4, g5, both?
asciilifeform: dun make much diff
asciilifeform: prolly g5 is more relevant to future
asciilifeform: ( they give moar bang for the antiquarian buck , and more likely to be met with )
BingoBoingo: !~later tell mircea_popescu a MUSL box is now ready to plug in and serve a form of Qntra... after a weekend of head banging
jhvh1: BingoBoingo: The operation succeeded.
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: oh hey
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: is cage alive nao?
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Contract start date is Feb 1st, but I am about to poke them to check the wire and see if the racking can start.
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: what about ip addrs ?
BingoBoingo: getting some from them and then resubmitting my application to LACNIC. Gotta utilize 64 ip addresses before LACNIC will allocate a /24
asciilifeform: right, but what does that mean in practice ? rack with no permanent ips for month? two ?
asciilifeform: considering the 'escape from dnsism' thing we have going, this actually matters
trinque: and also, handled incorrectly that'll be a lot of boxen that are suddenly unreachable
asciilifeform: aaha

asciilifeform: !!up laplinker
deedbot: laplinker voiced for 30 minutes.
laplinker: thank you :)
asciilifeform: laplinker: what brings you here ?
laplinker: oh, its a long story about AMD, HDT, and looking for sage probes online :)
asciilifeform: laplinker: last i saw they were still available with 'gizmo1'
asciilifeform: laplinker: see the faq, http://www.loper-os.org/?p=1887
laplinker: yeah, im not so sure i can afford something that costs: "send me a quote" :)
asciilifeform: it costs <200bux, wat
asciilifeform: oh ha, sold out.
laplinker: well that was unexpected , i assumed it would be expensive ,i mean look at the intel xdp
asciilifeform: 'We are sorry, but the item you are looking for is no longer available on our website.'
asciilifeform: laplinker: funnily enough, i have an intel xdp, and several boxes with the jack, but never was able to get it running
asciilifeform: it ain't gdb-compatible, for one thing. requires windows shitware which they sold for $10k's and never afaik leaked
laplinker: you should really get one of those minnow boards and a lure board, works OOB with intel DAL at VLV2 config
asciilifeform: for another thing, stock bios on intel boxes disables xdp jack
asciilifeform: laplinker: i don't particularly need this for anything, when i have a working sageprobe and amd boxes
laplinker: sometimes those xdp3 boxed pop up oon ebay, i found mine for about 50$ a few years ago, but now intel is debugging over usb3
asciilifeform: i like how the sage requires literally NO os support on the driving end
asciilifeform: ( it sits on lan and you can telnet to it )
asciilifeform: laplinker: the problem is that the usb3 debug is NOT os-transparent
asciilifeform: i.e. the 'victim' can disable the port
asciilifeform: and at any rate change behaviour when it senses that debug is active
laplinker: asciilifeform: hmm... good point
asciilifeform: considering that half the point of hardware debugger is to debug heavily-antidebuggistic shitware...
laplinker: than for intel platforms, i recommend minnow, but you are already set with AMD so nm
asciilifeform: iirc 'minnow' is a junk board, with nonexpandable ram, etc
asciilifeform: and with random crashes.
asciilifeform: didja ever get it to boot a standard winblows, for instance ?
laplinker: oh, no, i would go that far... maybe win 10 IOT, there is also this: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Intel-CONFIDENTIAL-HASWELL-PROCESSOR-Reference-Validation-Board-w-i5-4570R-ES/273038318551?hash=item3f925a1bd7:g:vaQAAOSwU91aWc7R
asciilifeform: laplinker: i have one almost exactly like it
asciilifeform: ( never got xdp going, because, again, requires shitware )
laplinker: asciilifeform: shitware is available for free, part of intel debugger studio (which is shitware) but the "intel DAL" is free
asciilifeform: laplinker: iirc i tried the 'free' ver, it wanted a xdp3.
asciilifeform: what i have iirc is a xdp1.
asciilifeform: ( they were at one point sold off for pennies on the dollar )
laplinker: i have it working with xdp3 and xhci debug
asciilifeform: right, but where the fuck to get a xdp3.
laplinker: the sw i mean
asciilifeform: aa
asciilifeform: 0 interest to me, because victim-detectable.
laplinker: xdp3 is hard to find, same i guess as the sage probve
asciilifeform: and dunwork on resetvector in bios.
asciilifeform: sage probe is quite easy to find. 1) get in wot -- register with deedbot 2) make a bid in btc 3) one of the folx here will sell you a sageprobe.
laplinker: hmm... i might actually do that, for the xdp3, they should be popping up more and more the more time passes and most folks use xhci, but thats just a guess
asciilifeform: winintel doesn't want people debugging the drm spyshitware in the bios; or the winblowz kernel. ergo xhci.
asciilifeform: but it so happens that these are the ONLY items i find interesting from hardware debug pov.
asciilifeform: so i have 0 interest in xhci or any other inband debugging.
asciilifeform: and will not comment on it, it is worthless garbage .
laplinker: maybe you will find this interesting https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JMEJCLX2dtw
asciilifeform: btw laplinker , recent ( 2013? 14? and after..? ) amd opterons suffer from similar problem : http://btcbase.org/log/2016-10-04#1552690☝︎
a111: Logged on 2016-10-04 15:36 asciilifeform: ACHTUNG, PANZERS! pc engines 'apu2' (the board with the intel nics - vs. 'apu1', with realtek) , turns out, is crippled, hdt probe barfs with it, the cpu is reputed to have a drm fuse set.
asciilifeform: i.e. the bios can (and by default does) perma-lock the hdt port after boot
asciilifeform: ( on some boxes, shortly after reset, in fact )
asciilifeform: laplinker: not especially interesting, no. i'm more interested in whatever fallbacks are in there ~separately~ from ME core. nsa fritzchip never come in singles.
asciilifeform: given that the 'security pros' and academia circuses were permitted to make ME core a centerpiece of their self-aggrandizing idiocy, you can be quite certain that there is a fallback. multiple fallbacks.
asciilifeform: at least in recent chips.
asciilifeform: fwiw i will not buy any new intel product. haven't, for quite some time.
asciilifeform: won't buy post-2011 amd either.
ben_vulpes: in other FUD: http://www.tetherreport.com/
asciilifeform: 'The author is concerned about backlash and has asked to remain pseudonymous by signing this report with a public hash of their name' << lol wai am i reading this
asciilifeform: neither i nor anybody else with half a brain need these charts, or 'We are going to use the Kolmogorov-Smirnov test here...', or any of it, to know that 'tether' is a gox-style scam
asciilifeform: and the folx who know, and do not care, are http://btcbase.org/log/2018-01-10#1768490 , they are as culpable as the orig author.☝︎
a111: Logged on 2018-01-10 16:50 asciilifeform: to round off the crackpottery, 'superlinear' is when the chumps deposit their dough, but afterwards ~go home to get more~, to bring friends, etc.
