mircea_popescu: speaking of http://btcbase.org/log/2018-02-02#1779624 : $ cat trilema.txt | grep -c '"HEAD ' > 5936. this is about 9 hours' worth of log. turns out mp-wp uses head to make sure pictures uploaded correctly ; turns out a lot of economical browsers use head on pics on a page prior to loading them, to check if they already have them in the cache.☝︎
a111: Logged on 2018-02-02 17:03 asciilifeform: i dun even propose to kill HEAD because it is complicated to implement -- it isn't, as i understand. but because 'nobody but pinoys ever seemed to issue a HEAD at asciilifeform's www, in decade+'
mircea_popescu: however, these are a) from commie times so nobody much cares and b) the most benign of nothingness, what press releases were being shuttled. im not even sure they were ciphered originally.
asciilifeform: usg only recently released various minutiae from 1945, and ~even it~ with gaps
mircea_popescu: anyway, kinda why i included them. afaik there exists nowhere online such a thing, for the inquiring mind that might wish to know how ro declassified documents look in the first place.
mircea_popescu: tho there's lots of them floating about in rosphere, as there was a lot of wranglking about political policing and so on.
asciilifeform enjoys embassies. doesn't actually know anyone who works in'em, however; but where asciilifeform lives they every year have a festival where 'look how great is our goatfuckistan, and how mighty its embassy, have some liquor, ' etc
mircea_popescu: so while pretty much every adult romanian saw at least one (often enough in the shape of, hey, do you know this guy you've been frioends for 30 years with, since chiuldhood ? well he was trying to fuck your wife and get you imprisoned), apparently there's a NOFORN clause implicit or something, 0 internets.☟︎
asciilifeform: the ro-themed wikilick ( mircea_popescu-powered, even, in the early burst iirc ) also counts, neh
mircea_popescu: well depends. sure, counts,. but i meant as the physical photocopy as such
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform thousand little clues, like the quality of the tape, the worn-ness of the letterheads, types of typing mistakes (eg, misspelling were unpermitted, missing space uniting words sometimes tolerated, many such tiny details)
mircea_popescu: if you spend enough time with anything you end up with an idea of how it goes, be it wine or typewriter era paperwork.
asciilifeform: ah this much is not surprising, i presumed it under 'artful fake'
asciilifeform: naturally you'd use worn ribbon, omit occasional space + never misspelling
mircea_popescu: infinitely artful fake is definitionally undetectable neh.
asciilifeform: ( or rather, i dun notice any substantial diff in flavour vs mircea_popescu's cr pics )
mircea_popescu: the people are a lot closer to the argentinian (pompous, inept, idle) than the tico (eager, voluble, extrovert) ; there's better night life but the 550 mm barometer is unpleasant ; much larger town but virtually no wild life ; arguably better food in restaurants, but i do prefer my slavegirls cooking anyway. and so on.
mircea_popescu: add to that the dismal (and ridiculously overpriced) real estate, and the inept regulations (instead of forbidding poor people / locals from owning cars privately, they came up with the batshit insane nonsense of banning plates by whether they're opdd or even on alternate days. and this isn't an accident, this is structurally how they think.)
mircea_popescu: and they have bicycle lanes, which i find intolerable.
hanbot: <mircea_popescu> and they have bicycle lanes, which i find intolerable. << not only lanes; it was claimed by at least one local that on sundays all principal roads are closed to cars --bikes only.
phf: i spent about half hour trying to crimp rj45. i completely lost the skill, nor do i, turns out, have the right tools. you've not lived unless you've tried to crimp each individual contact with pliers
ben_vulpes: i emerged @world three times and started working through hanon's piano exercises!
ben_vulpes: trinque: shit has gotten intolerably shrill. "vehicular homicide!"
asciilifeform: phf: at least you didnt try to solder'em. at one time asciilifeform fell to that depth.
BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> BingoBoingo ^ also for your book. << Booked
BingoBoingo: phf: What sort of accomodation are you looking for? Care to stay at the historic Rambler Hostel?☟︎
BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> the people are a lot closer to the argentinian (pompous, inept, idle) than the tico (eager, voluble, extrovert) ; there's better night life but the 550 mm barometer is unpleasant ; much larger town but virtually no wild life ; arguably better food in restaurants, but i do prefer my slavegirls cooking anyway. and so on. << The size of the bananastani city seems to make a tremendous difference.
BingoBoingo: <asciilifeform> hmm qntra heathendns still dun resolve? << Whois is still showing the same information
mircea_popescu: in other news, woke up with wood, took the tool to the little girl's room, picked one of the delicious butts asleep there an' fucked her daylights out. or rather i should say nightlights. in any case -- this is teh true joy in lyf! whenever you manage an erection, go pick one!
BingoBoingo: Glad you enjoyed the pre-breakfast exercise
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo i suspect you're right, city size has a large impact on inhabitant idiocy. overlarge cities train stupidity into dwellers.
mircea_popescu: it probably is that i didn't register the ns with namesilo ; but holy shit, "Go to the Domain Manager page within your account Click the applicable domain name (it will be underlined in black) Click the "View/Manage Registered NameServers" link within the "NameServers" box" << there is no fucking box with links in it wtf
mircea_popescu: there's a manage dns for this domain on the right and a change nameservers on the top, and neither have an option for it.
BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> everyone else : he leaves on the 13th, deadline to send gear his way say 5 days prior or something like that << I would like to add to the wishlist a small box capable of being a router. 2+ CPU cores, 3+ NICs, and 4-8 GB of RAM. Throw a pre clang Openbsd on there and appliancicize it.
a111: Logged on 2018-02-02 21:26 mircea_popescu: phf you can also book with a day+ layover in panama on your way back. for one thing you get to see the place and despise panama for good reason rather than by hearsay ; for the other flight over here is ~1hr ~every hour.
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: The switch's routing capabilities don't seem like they will be able to handle the transition period from our current borrowed /26 to the regionally allocated /24
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: not change the software ever. Just update the config files.
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes : i just spent 10 minutes clicking like a madman through the dates of your logs of trilema-trinque trilema-mod6 etc. could it be a feature that if one month contains less than 2k lines of log then it is presented as a month by month rather than as a day by day thing ?☟︎
asciilifeform: but ideally this is for ~later~ BingoBoingo use, rather than 'don't bisp until it has working firmware'
asciilifeform: ( in case anybody forgot, this is the box where you can stuff a few MB of useful payload straight into bios. which in turn is the last blobless amd build, takes payload straight in makefile )
BingoBoingo: And if you really want to go balls out there is the Hyatt centric across the the deletras de Montevideo with the Playa de Pocitos within rooftop pissing range
asciilifeform misread as 'with the rooftop pissing range', thought 'hm, feature'
BingoBoingo: lol, kind of a feature. From the roof you could probably piss on the sand if winds are favorable
phf: i've pissed from many rooftops, and it doesn't go as far as you might flatter yourself it will
BingoBoingo: But its location also means lots wind coming off the water
BingoBoingo: http://hotelpalacio.com.uy/ << The service sucks, they do they annoying thing where they keep the old timey skeleton keys at the desk and make you check your guests in, but the $45 a night superior room impresses girls from the interior of the country. Not much reason to stay there longer than the bang though.
BingoBoingo: And the mall "Shopping Punta Carrerretas" was a mega prison until the 1980s ish

BingoBoingo: And for people who want static ip addresses for their boxes taking the trip send me a gpgram with the number of boxes and number of addresses. I can give you a handful to set up before the box goes on the plane.
