mircea_popescu: the chin on that woman.
BingoBoingo: Almost done putting the report on the day together.

BingoBoingo: The rest of the graffiti pics and other sights incidently captured along the way will be posted later.
BingoBoingo: <shinohai> Do the locals have bronze-tipped spears at least? << No, but they have a statue of the fellow who genocided their natives in front of Tres Cruces Shopping/Bus Terminal.
shinohai: The one of Fructuoso Rivera on a horse?
BingoBoingo: Yeah, Fructos did it.
shinohai: Shoulda laid off that high Fructos syrup, hue

trinque: this porn whore that decides she'll have 15min of upboats recounting some mundane tryst she had with a mediocre man.
trinque allocates his outrage as best he can, comes up short
mircea_popescu: i'm confused as whether this is the groped staffer to the anti-groping campaigner or the chin-plower sex service dollie to the tan-haired first american or which
trinque does not know how the power dynamics play out among whore that ascends, and thus cannot reckon what her hindbrain tells her she didn't get.

mircea_popescu: no but i mean, was this re http://btcbase.org/log/2018-02-09#1783134 or http://btcbase.org/log/2018-02-09#1783033 or some third item ?☝︎☝︎

mircea_popescu: sooo BingoBoingo there's two fundamental problems you got there. one of them is that you have significant bills hitting in a few weeks that you've made no provision for paying. the other's that you lack basic physical building blocks, a lack you've made no provision for even discovering in time.
mircea_popescu: i did try throughout, up to and including yesterday, to somehow compensate for the various issues, but eventually the time comes for the observation that the situation you created for yourself there is not actually tenable. spend your remaining cash on your plane ticket out, we're putting an end here to this well meaning but ultimately ineffectual effort.
mircea_popescu: phf feel free to not use the plane tickets you bought, if that's more convenient.
mircea_popescu: more generally : i do not perceive any sort of future for the republic without an isp.
mircea_popescu: i know there's this generalized habit to believe one's "in charge" of "himself" and may permit or not permit reality into his autism bubble as he sees fit and with no further consequences than whatever he may deign to allow, such magic powers being the absolute minimum bar for a special person quite as superbly special as those bred of postmodernity.
mircea_popescu: i can follow with that in mind the overpoweringly loud "so what if mp said however long ago and it saying it again, my life is my own to make!!!!" disclaimer going silently with every such statement.
mircea_popescu: nevertheless, reality can only be elided at significant personal sacrifice and over short intervals. so, to repeat it : there is no future for the republic without an isp.
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: Understood. The closest thing to rescuing the situation here is appearing to be take on substantially more debt from mircea_popescu while working with the local mud, and insufficient assurance the mud can be made baked into bricks. I am willing to take on the debt, but I am now grossly aware I was unprepared intellectually and otherwise. I also see no reason for mircea_popescu to bleed cash feeding Uruguayos when the
BingoBoingo: Brasileros already do that.

asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: might you consider selling ?
mircea_popescu: selling what ?
asciilifeform: the carcass. supposing BingoBoingo would go along. i.e. rights to the rack, operation, etc .
mircea_popescu: selling to whom ?
asciilifeform: asciilifeform would bid, if price is right
asciilifeform: possibly others
mircea_popescu: i would certainly consider selling ; now take the next hour and consider the matter THOROUGHLY, before you come back to promise me that you're actually acting rationally, rather than psychotically trying to further a dream on the flimsy fuel of injured self-image.
asciilifeform: make, say, auction ( perhaps for l1 people only )
mircea_popescu: i'll be here an hour later. so will be here the fact the latter approach is well known and THOROUGHLY documented to cause shocking failure in otherwise well meaning, intelligent and respectable kids. that's ~the whole history of early bitcoin.
asciilifeform: i didnt say 'i'll buy right now, muhaha' did i
asciilifeform: make auction, like for bbet say
mircea_popescu: well carcasses have to be bought on the spot, they rot.
mircea_popescu: otherwise what the hell are you buying, "the rights" ? come feb 25th or so the item is worth ~0.
asciilifeform: iirc idea was , when originally proposed by mircea_popescu , for it to be +ev in ~year
asciilifeform: when stack fills
mircea_popescu: yes, but that was an idea, and the idea lives equally well everywhere. you don't have to implement it on this particular stump in preference of any other.
asciilifeform: well this stump comes with an emplaced pair of l1 hands
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: That isn't anything to sell. You would be financing BingoBoingo's increasingly uncertain adventure. Or coming down here personally meeting BingoBoingo and seeing if Latecho will transfer the contract to you before the end of February.
mircea_popescu: sure it does, but BingoBoingo isn't my chattel-held slavegirl, he's a free agent, what.
asciilifeform: right, must see what he says
asciilifeform: otherwise empty balloon, not isp
mircea_popescu: you certainly don't have to buy him from me in any case o.O
asciilifeform: well let's first see 1) is there sale 2) does BingoBoingo include himself , then 3) is there buy
mircea_popescu: yes yes. do what i told you, i don't say these things out of boredom. then we'll see.
asciilifeform: i'ma back tomorrow; still in the process of last iteration of 'do what mircea_popescu told'
mircea_popescu: works.
asciilifeform bbl, extended meat
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: I am not opposed to taking alfdebt in favor of mircea_popescu debt minding that the mircea_popescu debt comes first unless alf makes other arrangements with mircea_popescu. And also that a substantial part of the +EV involves BingoBoingo does things alf will find very disgusting to a few boxes in order to sell shared hosting. Think of how alf directed venture with PCengines 8 to the 1U as opposed to VPS for small
BingoBoingo: instances would work.
BingoBoingo: As fucking disappointing as the locals are, I still prefer being off the reservation. If asciilifeform can promise the fuel to continue Hostel + Desk + $20 daily per diem to not starve... BingoBoingo is going to take time and think himself... After blogging the other pics from the yesterday walk.
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo so go sleep, there's little you can do this saturday anyway. we see tomorro.
BingoBoingo: Alright.

mircea_popescu: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-02-10#1783178 << for the sake of it being said, nominally all difficulties are naught moar than more proffit opportunities. if you get organized to import all the shit the dc MUST have but did not in fact have, you have yet another revenue stream ready. pay $150 per chassis in saneland, plus $30 or so in shipping, sell them the dozen for 3300 (+ "iva") -- which hey, is a GREAT fucking deal seeing h☝︎

mircea_popescu: ow it's half what they thought it costs, neh, not to mention nobody else has it. free monopoly granted you through stupidity.
mircea_popescu: then in 20 years important worms can hurr durr about how you "stole" your fortune (from the "less advantaged" who "had fewer oppportunities") because, ohohohobiously, "all capital is theft".
mircea_popescu: (saneland here technically is taiwan or somesuch, i expect, but anyway)
BingoBoingo: That is the only long game I had been seeing which might justify continuing the adventure. Especially considering THIS is the local webhosting competition https://www.netuy.net/hosting.linux.uruguay.php?gclid=EAIaIQobChMIlpvT_4qc2QIVkYKRCh0msAP1EAAYASAAEgKVU_D_BwE
ave1: If you start with desktop boards, can't you also start with desktop cases? (airflow will suck etc., but you will be up and running)
BingoBoingo: At any sort of density, even with 125 Watt processors that is a lot of hardware to risk (in terms of RAM and heat sensitive SSDs)
BingoBoingo: Anyways, going to go to see the local blackface Carnival parade tonight. Hopefully I get better at the night time photography thing.

diana_coman: thank you, phf !
phf: i can probably put that machine on ssh, but it's been sitting in a closet and wildly spinning the fans, so i wonder if there's something i need to tweak in openbsd to keep it from doing that..
trinque: phf: openbsd version? better fan control got merged in recent versions.
phf: 6.2
trinque: hm, dunno then.
trinque: pete_dushenski: lemme see here
phf: it was pretty quite until i started installing gnat, but then it kept on spinning. i'm not going to investigate right now
