mod6: mornin'
BingoBoingo: Good mornin mod6
BingoBoingo: I have to say the silence this morning is a bit extraño
asciilifeform: ohai BingoBoingo , mod6
mod6: hola asciilifeform
mod6: node has been caught up all night. we'll see...
asciilifeform: mod6: speaking of, didja ever try ben_vulpes's moar-aggression patch ?
asciilifeform: the one that actively milks every peer regularly, and not simply on-connect
mod6: ah, no haven't had a chance yet.
asciilifeform: i suspect that his approach is in fat The Right Thing. making connect-time 'special' is every bit as dumb as making boot time special.
asciilifeform: considering that a connection can last for theoretically unlimited time.
asciilifeform: *in fact
mod6: yaeh, i have a feeling that's kinda what was happening to me. but untested yet.
asciilifeform: the ben_vulpes takes the orig fix to the logical conclusion.
asciilifeform: mod6: let's restate the general principle. if you have two or moar trb nodes, and they are 'in communion' with one another regularly, and yet one is several 100 blox behind the other(s) -- THIS IS A BUG
asciilifeform: thinkaboutit.
asciilifeform: it should not be possible.
asciilifeform: it's one thing where prb refuses to serve trb node blox, or puts out some oddball liquishit that gets it malleus'd, etc
asciilifeform: but trb nodes really oughta all be within a few blox of one another at all times.
mod6: i agree.
asciilifeform: so for so long as this situation continues to be observed anywhere -- we have a bug.
mod6: Tuning the best interval between when we would query a connected host seems like it might take some doing. Right now, looks like 20 minutes (in ben's vpatch).
mod6: Maybe gotta get another dedicated env. :D
mod6: Or just gotta wait and see if i drop behind. Then may just compile it in. Will report back once I have something on this.

asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: didja meet the rack yet ?
BingoBoingo: Carrying shit over there in the morning tomorrow. Last visit it was looking good. Awaiting the necessary information to get the routing configured as best as I can before plugin time.
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: do they have a console on wheels, or how is the after-the-screws-tightened config usually done nowadays ?
BingoBoingo: I am about to find out. But I recall seeing some sorta carts chilling in the human habitble zone.
trinque: shinohai: might even consider making them pay. gotta be years of znc in a pair of tits
shinohai: well i have an addy up, best plaque i can put up.
shinohai: there is a surfeit of tits, years of znc in btc
trinque: "well I have an addy up" is not selling a product

asciilifeform: adjust material how ?
asciilifeform: can be broken down into the smallest logical cuts, but not smaller.
mp_en_viaje: there's just no way the smallest logical cuts are longer than weeklong.

a111: Logged on 2018-01-29 17:10 asciilifeform would like to see a complete wwwtron in ada. but does not have any spare arms presently for such a thing.
asciilifeform: let's consider this puzzler
asciilifeform: what exactly is 'ada apache' ?
asciilifeform: http server ? fwiw adacore distributes one. ( i dun like it, for same reason as apache -- it's a megatonne of gnarl . but, it does in fact work, and benefits from the language guarantees etc )
mp_en_viaje: link between ram/disk and net in html protocol.
mp_en_viaje: you know what apache does neh ?
asciilifeform: there's nothing particularly high-tech about serving http
mp_en_viaje: there is one you say ? me had no idea.
asciilifeform: certainly easier problem, algorithmically, than e.g. bignum
mp_en_viaje: apache is a terrible mess even today ; you might recall my regular meltdowns whenever tryin g to get it to work.
mp_en_viaje: i expect ada's "works" ~same
asciilifeform: i have not tried, could not get past the gag reflex last time
asciilifeform: prolly will end up writing own.
mp_en_viaje: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-01-29#1778059 << feb 1st is just fine.☝︎
a111: Logged on 2018-01-29 17:24 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: fwiw ada's built-in sane threading and non-semaphoric thread-to-thread info passing features make it an inviting idea.
mp_en_viaje: indeed. threading major problem even on modern apaches.
asciilifeform: the fundamental disease is that c is retarded.
asciilifeform: from this, flows apache etc.
mp_en_viaje: somehow i had like an inkling tou'll say that
asciilifeform: lol

mp_en_viaje: in other news, apparently bogota has bdsm bar, open all night.
mp_en_viaje: in the quaint words of the virgin mary, oh im totally going.
asciilifeform: meanwhile, in entomology, gem , 'Ada is arguably more successful in its domain not because of its ridiculous verbosity, but because it has higher level features, separation of concerns, safety checks, development teams focused on embedded programming, aircraft specialists and programmers working on the compilers, etc. One could still take all of these same Ada experts, brainwash them, and have them (or another team with more sense) i
asciilifeform: mplement a more reasonable syntax and notation while keeping the same range checks, contract checks, safety checks, stack abilities, separation of concerns (type declarations, arrays vs pointers to pointers, by reference vs by value or in/out params, modules, high level threading abilities, sub modules, packages).'
asciilifeform: ( http://wiki.c2.com/?AdaLanguage )
mp_en_viaje: lol.. the "one could take republican and brainwash" is essentially the imperial fantasy
asciilifeform: exactly. is why quoted.
mp_en_viaje: "we, too, could have things" "how the fuck could you ever have anything ?" "well, if we did, then we would" "certainly."

mp_en_viaje: but hey, the fantasy that it works for them is a large part of why bitcoin corrupts so well.
mp_en_viaje: giraffe that imagines it too could digest lions makes lion's favourite giraffe brand, i expect.
asciilifeform: wolf never seems to stop thinking he can digest wolfsangel, also
asciilifeform: or fish -- hook
mp_en_viaje: (the transsexual army is not a rhetorical flourish. think : what is a transsexual ? one a) unoccupied enough to question something as fundamental as his sex and also b) dumb enough to get the wrong answer. meanwhile what is army built of ? a) people who obey orders. so...)
asciilifeform: eh castration cults have existed in the past.

asciilifeform: iirc the exact eggog was 'dun have anuffingtosay yet'
mp_en_viaje: so ? maybe i have something to say to her.
mp_en_viaje: conversation isn't waiting for the other speaker to finally shut up so you can speak your piece.
