mircea_popescu: and in other indian news : rotimatic is a roti prata maker. it weighs 18kgs, has about 50 sensors and 500 motors.
BingoBoingo: That is a worrying sensor to motor ratio
mircea_popescu: ikr.
BingoBoingo: I have to wonder... Did Uber make it?

BingoBoingo: !~later tell douchebag ^ the above logline has some interesting history
mircea_popescu: o yeah speaking of which, hey douchebag whatever happened to that tea chick ?
mircea_popescu: imagine the waitresses of today. loose hundred dollar bills and trips to costa rica are such a common everyday occurence in their lives, they don't even have to go chasing. let opportunity chase after the broad instead, is it postmodernism or innit?!?!?!
BingoBoingo: Seriously
BingoBoingo: They again just about everybody in this country is "on vacation" for some definitions of vacation.
mircea_popescu: if they all lived in palaces it'd be one thing, but i've seen the louse traps.
mircea_popescu: yeah, aerosmith's "permanent vacation". brain checked out.
BingoBoingo: Or they have gone to exotic places like paraguay.
BingoBoingo: Which may be exotic for people from anywhere but Uru-
mircea_popescu: i guess.
BingoBoingo: Kinda like going to the Ozarks when you already live in St Louis
mircea_popescu: or they despise themselves so much (as the direct and also necessary result of spending all their time involved with absolutely nothing else) that they automatically discount anything that happens to them by like 99.9999999%. because, as the wise timuruc once said, "if you were a millionaire you wouldn't be talking to me"
mircea_popescu: in other http://btcbase.org/log/2018-03-31#1791647 : robotwisdom.com a) ran 1995 to 2006. notwitstanding the guy's only 60 or so ; and b) only exists as offline copies now. because...☝︎
a111: Logged on 2018-03-31 16:40 mircea_popescu: i would really like a list of "all personal blogs older than a decade" right about now.
mircea_popescu: (guy, notably, is the ~only ustard "literary critic" to have actually read joyce's manuscripts. and you have to hear of this from me because the pantsuit is busy discussing the pseudoachievements of black chicks or w/e the fuck they do.)
mircea_popescu: https://twitter.com/robotwisdom linked for drama ; apparently brain fell down exact same hole as http://trilema.com/2011/ahahahahahaaaaa/ (paul goma was a big deal briefly in the 60s ; but it didn't take).
mircea_popescu: jesus christ why is peterme.com orange ;/ and what the fuck is this, one self-promotion item from jan 2017, another pushing a book from august 2016 and a third from april ? jesus christ these people lack any insides already.

mircea_popescu: http://links.net/daze/17/01/26-i-was-searching-the-web-for-information-on-lipstick-and-saw-your-excellent-post-catdick.html << aaand here's justin hall being a total n00b.
mircea_popescu: anyway, the fact that none of the early bloggers were actually literate minds shows. to give up the power of literature for the lure of "oral history" ? madness.
mircea_popescu: http://www.cs.cmu.edu/~awb/linux.history.html << early history of linux is probably important since we're doing so many start-of-world things. note how it was never intended to be an os, it was intended to be a "a (free) operating system (just a hobby, won't be big and professional like gnu) for 386(486) AT clones" in order to... "it was a project to teach me about the 386".
mircea_popescu: considering also "Simply, I'd say that porting is impossible. As already mentioned, it uses a MMU, for both paging (not to disk yet) and segmentation. It's the segmentation that makes it REALLY 386 dependent (every task has a 64Mb segment for code & data - max 64 tasks in 4Gb. Anybody who needs more than 64Mb/task - tough cookies)." i'd say it actually broadly lives up to the original design -- linux is a fine non-professiona
mircea_popescu: l approach for one hobbist in finland to lift into his own head the gnarl of 386.
mircea_popescu: precious little ELSE it does, but then again my screwdriver also doesn't juice oranges.
mircea_popescu: not very well, at any rate.
douchebag: mircea_popescu: not sure what happened to her, i could send her a msg on discord
douchebag: i got a few girls who wanna come in here for the offer, but I was sleeping most of the day
douchebag: so I wasn't there to explain what the hell to do

douchebag: Is everyone doing well today?
mircea_popescu: doin' great.
douchebag: nice nice
douchebag: just heard some gunshots
douchebag: wonder what that could be...
douchebag: I'm glad I'm getting out of this shithole city very soon here
mircea_popescu: "law enforcement" ?
douchebag: mircea_popescu: I live in South Chicagoland, so that sort of thing is pretty "normal" here
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo used to live there iirc.
douchebag: If you go to the ghetto side of town, you see houses with bullet holes in some of the houses
mircea_popescu: hey, there's a whole facade riddled with bullet holes in downtown timisoara
mircea_popescu: left from 1989 though.
douchebag: I'm just glad I'm getting out of this shithole very soon
mircea_popescu: where to ?
douchebag: Travelling Europe
mircea_popescu: so what, become a gypsy ?
douchebag: Going to end up getting citizen and whatnot once I find a place to settle down
mircea_popescu: a
douchebag: I have a full time job working remotely, so I'll be just fine over there
mircea_popescu: indeed.
douchebag: Just not happy here anymore, haven't been for a long time. It's not a good sight to see everything going to hell and there's nothing I can do about it except leave
mircea_popescu: seems to be the common experience of a lot of people.
mircea_popescu: in fact, of most non-retarded white people.
douchebag: This was a somewhat decent town when I was growing up, there were still the bad sides of town. But now there's homeless people EVERYWHERE, drug addicts, gang members, ect..
douchebag: I have a house full of crack dealers who just moved in adjacent to me
mircea_popescu: ~nothing left for people to do.
douchebag: It's mainly an issue of the whole mentality where people think they're entitled to success
douchebag: Every black just seems to think their only chance for success is to become a famous rapper, and if they're not a famous rapper they choose to sell drugs instead of working a real job
mircea_popescu: well, net access compressed the space of perceived possibility. 1949 people read about a murder done for 50k and thought it made sense. today's kids think a job that doesn't pay 1mn a year isn't really worth getting out of bed ; let alone good enough to commit murder.
mircea_popescu: and from the other side of the double whammy, there.is.literally.nothing.to.do.
douchebag: mircea_popescu: I know people around here who would kill for $800
douchebag: Considering murder is glorified by modern rap music
trinque: you're in chiraq aren't you?
douchebag: Yep
douchebag: Slangin n bangin rock on the block, poppin shots at the opps, fuck the cops seems to be the mentality
mircea_popescu: used to be that any stiff capable of walking could get a job. there are NO jobs now. nobody with an iq under 150 is or can be useful for anything ; except of course if female for the http://trilema.com/2016/an-immodest-proposal/#selection-53.0-71.1 purpose
mircea_popescu: (which is why all the "SSI" and foodstamps etc bs)
douchebag: I've had many jobs, in fact every job I have ever applied to - I got the job
mircea_popescu: so yes, obviously dudes will go about enforcing the chaining on the state-supported breeder cows. what the fuck else, "go to new york to be a writer" ?
mircea_popescu: douchebag the "no jobs -- nothing useful for normie to do" is a statistical argument, can't be invalidated by example.
douchebag: Well, every job I have ever applied to - I got the job. It doesn't seem to be a lack of jobs, it's a lack of will to work like a normal person
mircea_popescu: right. give me an example ?
trinque: horse shit, where are the great projects of mid last century to entomb the ablebodied men in wet concrete?
mircea_popescu: trinque consider this lulzy angle -- in 1940 they could get a few hundred to about 1200 or so young men to go up on a boat. wake up every day, clean the deck, no girls for two years.
douchebag: Working at a bar bussing tables, working at a furniture store moving boxes, working at a shipping facility, working at a security firm
mircea_popescu: imagine if they had to man the pacific fleet today. what the fuck, 1 mn draftees per ship, shoot 10k a day for rank failure.
mircea_popescu: douchebag do you see the "no economic utility" approach re all those jobs ?
douchebag: Yes
douchebag: However, sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do to get by and it doesn't have to involve robbing people or selling crack
mircea_popescu: yes, and good for you if you manage but don't be surprised when most don't. that's the nature of statistics.
trinque: crack's there, where other things aren't
mircea_popescu: who could have predicted (tm) that "we'll make an economy out of doing each other's laundry" nonsense will soon devolve of "we're stuck here, crabs in a pot, trying to sling an array of pointless dopes on each other".
douchebag: I don't know a single person who doesn't use drugs here. Whether it be weed or shotting heroin up your arm
douchebag: shooting*
mircea_popescu: douchebag or thinking they're "entrepreneurs" headed to sf or "actresses" headed to hollywood or "talented" headed to shitty-platform.com or so on.
douchebag: Yes
douchebag: Oh my god...
mircea_popescu: there is no substantial difference between smoking crack and checking your roth ira
douchebag: That resonates very well with me
douchebag: Most people I know, especially college students seem to think that they're going to be famous - and if they're not famous they keep reaching towards unachievable goals
douchebag: Some of them even admit to having no skill - yet still feel entitled
mircea_popescu: douchebag you ever saw tlp btw ? i guess you might enjoy. iirc he also lived somewhere great-lakes-ish. even got held up by a "patient" once
douchebag: mircea_popescu: I've got bullet fragments lodged in my leg due to a driveby shooting at a gas station
mircea_popescu: in other "motherfucking hell" : linux got " US/German/French/Finnish keyboards" in v 0.11! along with other boneheaded idiocies like "code/data sharing between unrelated processes". wonder of wonders, there was actually NO philosophical community here, since the get-go. pure incidentals.
mircea_popescu: douchebag hey, me too, almost exactly.
douchebag: What happened w/ your situation?
mircea_popescu: that's still a mystery.
douchebag: Fucked up thing about my situation, a week prior I was at a different gas station and bullets went flying there. Didn't get hit
douchebag: Next week I get shot in the fucking leg
douchebag: while pumping gas

mircea_popescu: somehow i never cared that much.
douchebag: I'm just glad I'll be awake from here in about two months
douchebag: away*
mircea_popescu: sounds like a sound plan you got, check out the euro hussies, find a spot to settle down somewhat.
douchebag: Yeah I can't wait
douchebag: Can't wait to try some of the foods - and my girlfriend is a great cook and loves cooking for me
mircea_popescu: you never been outside of the us huh ? that may promise to be quite the shock, like kid born in prison getting out.
douchebag: I'll be in Poland staring off, any Polish foods you'd suggest me trying?
mircea_popescu: i dunno about specifically polish, but sure, try the pirogi, try the blinyii, they should be capable of doing the north-eastern stuff well enough.
douchebag: and no, I've never been in any where farther than the surrounding states of Illinois
mircea_popescu: try all the soups once or twice ; starting with borrscht and move down.
mircea_popescu: but really, just try everything. in restaurants! good ones!
douchebag: That's the plan!
mircea_popescu: were in poland were you going ? warsaw was it ?
douchebag: Gdansk
mircea_popescu: bistro de paris ah.
mircea_popescu: hm.
douchebag: I'm excited to see the sea for the first time
douchebag: Especially during the summer
mircea_popescu: it's a shitty sea though. but better than nothing i guess.
douchebag: Oh yeah, I realize that - I just think it'll be nice to finally see the sea
mircea_popescu: they actually had a great pirogi place in gdansk but i don't remember it now. somewhere downtown.
douchebag: I've been to Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Missouri, Tenessee, and Wisconsin
douchebag: Awesome, can't wait to try it man. You really don't understand how happy this makes me to know I'll be out of this shithole
mircea_popescu: i've seen it before lol.
trinque still doesn't mind TX, could be wrong
trinque: but if douchebag can get out, go for it, see everything you can
mircea_popescu: travel's important. especially for the young squirt.
douchebag: Texas sounds like one of the nicer states
douchebag: I like the nationalism
trinque: mostly because it doesn't want to be one
mircea_popescu: but yes, if memory serves san antonio was the only livable city in the us, and that's in texas.

mircea_popescu: now look here you nutjobs. mysql run once per user is WORSE a situation than the kernel run once per user. both apache and mysql are made to be one-for-all. this is not something you can negotiate by yourselves on the quiet in a day.
mircea_popescu: mysql has a permissions structure, why not fucking use it.
mircea_popescu: and moreover, when you tell me it's gonna be a day a week ago and then send your people on an insane mission through the jungle to build you a mountaintop aircraft submarine, you'd better fucking say something.
