ckang: phf: ah if you have a spare board you can run on a local net, i would be curious how it stacks up
mircea_popescu: Starrrcx, 8d539ed5.
ckang: its become an obsession of mine almost
mircea_popescu waves
ckang: even more so after the recent changes in gov policy in regards to information harvesting by ISPs
ckang: hi mircea_popescu
mircea_popescu: heya.
ckang: if you get a min, had an issue with the bots on 1 girl, pheeby
ckang: i think it may have been when the code registration issue was happening
douchebag: yo mircea_popescu
douchebag: im gonna let Starrrcx you're on
mircea_popescu: aite.
mircea_popescu: ckang, she's not been paid ?
ckang: mircea_popescu: yea, i found the !!pay but !!ledger shows nothing
mircea_popescu: aite, ima re-add her in next batch.
ckang: re: chroot/$PATH stuff, is there any reason not to opt for a container model and leave that abstraction up to a dedicated system?
ckang: performance hit is fairly negligible
mircea_popescu: depends how you count the hit. complexity hit is significant.
mircea_popescu: metaphorically speaking, the solution to spilling some food in front of the fridge is not to attach a mechanical broom to it.
ckang: my experience with chrooted/jailed setups has been, overall, messy
mircea_popescu: yeah. the whole stygian stable has to be cleanned out. no more PATH and no more bash-style calls. apache style calls.
ckang: PATH turns into a a cluster fuck, always
ckang: openvz i didnt care much for, docker has been solid though
ckang: and being able to control the network gives way more flexibility in limiting what someone can/cant do
mircea_popescu: you ever read docker ?
ckang: the source? or what aspect
mircea_popescu: yes the source.
ckang: no, i have not, pretty iffy?
mircea_popescu: so in what sense "has it been solid" then ?
ckang: oh, in terms of stability and usability
mircea_popescu: understand how the empire of idiots' euphemism threadmill works : they noticed that you go by the heuristic of "published holes", and they've adapted to that (because that's what the idiots are all about, "Exam taking", ie optimizing for the measurement not for the variable measured). so, they keep publishing strainers and calanders, except the sort where YOU don't know the holes. it gives you the warm fuzzy feeling that "The ☟︎
mircea_popescu: y're reasonablyt safe, as far as we know" ; and as we learn better... they just come up with a new piece of shit.
mircea_popescu: this is precisely the "crypto progress" of http://btcbase.org/log/2018-04-16#1800039 ; and everything else. ☝︎
a111: Logged on 2018-04-16 16:05 zx2c4: mircea_popescu: i take it now that mostly you're skeptical because the nsa was pushing ecc in the early years, before everyone else woke up to it
mircea_popescu: usg trying to leverage the fact that idiots stick together whereas intelligent people jwz, into this situation where they keep shitting turds larger than what you can fit in head and so "one man's guess is as good as any other's" and "we don't actually know it's a scam" hurr durr.
ckang: purposely or by buying 0days ?
mircea_popescu: huh ?
mircea_popescu: they WRITE the holes lmao.\
ckang: ahhhh
ckang: im surprised we haven't heard more about that, someone with a email or offer publishing it
ckang: i could totally see them buying up new 0days and letting them go unpatched for future use
mircea_popescu: the sad story of tor is a good primer in this sense.
ckang: ahh yea, it was just recently they had the torbrowser svg stuff too
mircea_popescu: http://trilema.com/2013/dear-guardian-stop-being-retarded/ << this is the historical moment when the usg's "technology" machine got killed.
mircea_popescu: now, of course they've been pretending like "it never happened" for five years now ; but then again they're also pretending to be solvent, and militarily relevant, and whatnot.
ckang: i imagine to infiltrate a project successfully they need to 'invest' into it before it becomes too large so theres not 1000s of nerds reviewing commits
mircea_popescu: yup.
ckang: has there been any documented cases of such happening recently? or attempts
mircea_popescu: and also they need a certain sort of fucktard mindset. like this : http://trilema.com/2018/and-in-todays-lulz-the-obnoxious-cocksucker/
mircea_popescu: ckang, what's your standard for "documented" ?
mircea_popescu: contrary to what you might think, it's 9x% the function of nsa, trolling on github all day.
ckang: just someone publicly calling someone out at trying to inject malicious code into a project
mircea_popescu: think about it -- the sort of people who'd publish idiotic crap a la tor docker etc LIKE the meat injection. and the sort of people who'd protest don't get involved with that.
ckang: https://usercontent.irccloud-cdn.com/file/I5HQ0yxC/templedongOSxxx.png :)
ckang: one of my favs
mircea_popescu: hey.
mircea_popescu: he is right, though.

Starrrcx: i dont have much of an opinion besides it being money can you tell me more about it?
mircea_popescu: notrly much more than what's already at http://trilema.com/category/bitcoin/

a111: Logged on 2018-04-09 04:25 hanbot: phf et al: attempted to press latest vtools to the keccak head. v (mod6's) reports vtools_vpatch_newline not in flow, neither its antecedent vtools_fixes_static_tohex, despite both patches and (verified good) sigs present (they neither show up via flow command). v will press to vtools_vpatch.vpatch, but no further. see http://p.bvulpes.com/pastes/oNRhE/?raw=true .
phf: trinque: it wouldn't, i believe there's an antecedent->dependency transformation issues (i.e. the transform in mod6 v is adhoc, so it can't handle the tricky antecedent graph). the approach hanbot used was to just use the patches from the left branch of the graph, until, per mircea_popescu's request, i write a general purpose v graph code. ☟︎

mircea_popescu can hear trinque sighing in relief from here.
ckang: haha i bet
douchebag: mircea_popescu: Do I get a bonus for bringing in hella tits :D
trinque: hey, I learned to be less racist against crackwhores. who knew.
mircea_popescu: douchebag, did you ever get that rockchip btw ?
mircea_popescu: trinque, crackwhores are whores too!
douchebag: nah
mircea_popescu: ugh.
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes, i thought it was "ready to go" and everything days ago ?
douchebag: :/
ckang: if you ever do anything similar im down but gonna stick around and see where this goes ;p
douchebag: lol ckang think of how many tits the two of us brought in lol
ckang: ive not counted
douchebag: just showing on the "ill pay for your tits site thing"
douchebag: 23
ckang: mircea_popescu: how many btw did you end up with?
douchebag: for me lol
douchebag: i know there's more not listed there though
mircea_popescu: how many whats ?
mircea_popescu: oh. i dunno, 60 something, 70
douchebag: there's 23 girls listed on "ill pay for your tits" that I pulled in
mircea_popescu: douchebag, im lazy, there's a whole chunk here that i've not yet ul'd
douchebag: yeah I know I was just coutning lol
douchebag: mircea_popescu: so me and ckang don't get any reward for the effort though ?
mircea_popescu: not more than you already got, no.
douchebag: :/
mircea_popescu: sucks huh.
douchebag: no early retirement from titties now I guess
mircea_popescu: how much did you actually keep off it ?
douchebag: $1200
mircea_popescu: well, $1200 worth of 2013 btc would sure be a retirement todaty
ckang: lol yea it would be
mircea_popescu recalls the lulzy days of "market price" back when i was buying them at 2.20 - 2.50 dollars a pop
mircea_popescu: becauuse totally, "bitcoin price in fiat". that's a thing.
douchebag: I paid $500 in advertisements today though :/
mircea_popescu: how's that work ?
douchebag: $200 for the pimp lady to get a 3 girls
douchebag: $300 for a discord server that shares nudes
mircea_popescu: o.O
douchebag: for 3 days
mircea_popescu: why's a discord server cost ?!
douchebag: it has like 5k people in it
mircea_popescu: so what do you get for $300 ?
douchebag: a channel in their discord server
douchebag: called tit charity
mircea_popescu: so it's $100 per day per channel ?!
ckang: yea people treat discords like businesses these days, they even sell large servers
ckang: pretty wild
mircea_popescu: now we understand why the discord meme. i imagine it's pretty good money selling "5k imaginary users" to you ppl.
douchebag: well
douchebag: I have 2 girls right now ready to go
mircea_popescu: ckang, consider http://trilema.com/2014/askfm-laid-bare-or-whats-half-a-million-uniques-to-you/
douchebag: but obv that's nto happening anymore :/
mircea_popescu: douchebag, you're not proposing anyone else anywhere else can extract anything like that sort of utility out of the shitpile are you ?
douchebag: elaborate?
mircea_popescu: the "5k user discord server" is not substantially different from a piece of paper on which you wrote the number 5 followed by the letter k, or for that matter paul graham's yahoo scam ( http://trilema.com/2015/investigations-in-the-bone-heap-of-the-lost-generation-today-mashable/#footnote_6_59020 / http://trilema.com/2014/the-psychology-of-the-bagholder/#selection-117.0-117.539 ). ☟︎
mircea_popescu: the right end of that business is to be SELLING the servers to people like you.
mircea_popescu: it's funny how usg history repeats itself : the elite uses the mass to rape the middle class. guy with a little dough and a little brain gets eaten into this "pay the brahmin to use the cattle herd" scheme again and again and again.
douchebag: well, I mean if you didn't end it right now I would have made it all back lol
mircea_popescu: yes. but this source you have found is not simply one or two or three sigmas away from average. it is an uncountable, perhaps a literal infinity of sigmas away from average.
mircea_popescu: it's a rapture-level event, so to speak.
mircea_popescu: you understand that the difference between the ill-pay-for-your-tits value-evaluation-function over this field of items and the anything-else value-evaluation-function over the same field isn't 10x or 100x, either. people routinely have trouble extracting as much as a cent per thousand ; that'd be 10e6x
ckang: im just grateful for the opportunity, any income is income when between work
mircea_popescu: ckang, well, i kinda like to leverage spot experience into more general theory. let's say it's a weakness of mine.
ckang: spot experience as in brief?
mircea_popescu: as in the above thing. a spot of experience.
mircea_popescu: you know, he attempted to run a little business, i'm attempting to help him make sense of it.
mircea_popescu: in my twisted mind, that's a fair trade.

ben_vulpes: definitely not targeting problem gamblers and people who want to feel like traders
mircea_popescu: dude succeeds at feeling like a trade bot programmer. the reset is integral.
ben_vulpes: thing comes complete with etoro preprogrammed bots

ben_vulpes: youdontfuckingsay.png
mircea_popescu: and the lulzuy thing is, ETORO DIDNT EVEN HAVE TO PAY FOR THIS.
mircea_popescu: they support the inca because they want to, not for any other reason.
ben_vulpes: well etoro in the abstract, they have their own hilarious marketplace of preprogrammed bots
mircea_popescu: yup.

mircea_popescu: by this strike of genius, you can now be left with the impression that you're in business, selling things. to yourself -- which is the fucking point, all the imperial scams work by your selling things to yourself, from facebook to "rule of law".
mircea_popescu: and the company shows a great balance sheet, also! a trillion in sales!!! fastest growing (see ? FASTEST GROWING ? yes ? http://btcbase.org/log/2018-04-20#1803460 ?) company online! "makes" very close to what it "spends"! GREAT INVESTMENT! ☝︎
a111: Logged on 2018-04-20 02:39 mircea_popescu: understand how the empire of idiots' euphemism threadmill works : they noticed that you go by the heuristic of "published holes", and they've adapted to that (because that's what the idiots are all about, "Exam taking", ie optimizing for the measurement not for the variable measured). so, they keep publishing strainers and calanders, except the sort where YOU don't know the holes. it gives you the warm fuzzy feeling that "The
mircea_popescu: basically it's an extension of the groupon scam (hey, anyone "excited" by the "perspectives" of usg's "business" and "entrepreneuriat" ever think of groupon anymore ? that whole hype bubble of "global warming" / "ozon depletion" whatever popped and... ??? )
mircea_popescu: and it was, too, for a few years before the dood cracked and went on the pipe it was hot stuff.
mircea_popescu: the inescapable fact that in the bubble of insanity resting atop fed's imaginary money a company that spends a trillion to make a trillion is in fact an EXCEPTIONALLY GOOD investment (and google is NOTHING ELSE than this, to be clear, nor are any of the rest of them) will result in the necessary evolution where "here, i've made an imaginary company that trades a trillion with "real people". problem ?
mircea_popescu: then they're stuck communicating what should have been fucking communicated by the workings of money in the economy through other channels. "backpage is color sextraficking and that "very exciting genetic blabla" company is color doubleplusungood and so fucking on. there's no more useless, stupid and soon to be bankrupt, because http://trilema.com/2014/the-problem-of-ideal-social-systems-reprint/
mircea_popescu: build an ideal social system, lose language. or rather -- language dragontails the shit out of your nonsense.
BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> wasn't that bugpowder ? << It was herbi, bugpowder was gone by then. unless herbi was a tulpa of bugpowder
mircea_popescu: nah, dun think so.
mircea_popescu: also, to belabour the point : anyone who thinks "oh, that guy, really, cure hiv and diabethes ? he must have lost it". NO HE DID NOT ; you understood nothing of the logreading you did so far! think about it : this dood had built self "a brand", ie, there were however many useless muppets who knew who he was / kept track / had him in their rss feed / he had them in his mailing list. this was t0.
mircea_popescu: then at t1 the item went through some phenomena that'd have repelled all thinking individuals.
mircea_popescu: finally coming out of the massive bender at t2, the dude WOULD STILL LIKE TO EAT. how would you eat if you were him ? would you give up, do something else with your time ? he doesn't give up. he's fucking dedicated. ☟︎
mircea_popescu: what he does is observe that out of his 10mn or w/e list, 9.999 million were culled off in t1. fine. WHATEVER!!!. there's still 10`000 left yes ? what do we know about them ?
mircea_popescu: that they're the sort of fucktard who WASNT CULLED, yes ? they "stuck with him", yes ?
mircea_popescu: who better to sell hiv-diabethes cures to, then ?
mircea_popescu: ~that~ part is perfectly sensible.

asciilifeform: 55.6V << notbad
asciilifeform: apparently these things dun rot on the shelf as fast as i thought
ckang: volts? kind of an odd #, telco ?
asciilifeform: ckang: nominally 48
ckang: yea 48 is the only thing i could think of close
asciilifeform: and yes it's an industrial ups, 'liebert'
ckang: maybe european telco :)
ckang: ive been wanting to spin my own UPS/BMS
ckang: or find a bring your own battery solution but didnt find much available last time i looked
mircea_popescu: ckang, build your own, out of car/truck batteries.
mircea_popescu: they generally can be found very cheap, with a lot of life left in them (that it useful to you, in a 500 item arrangement, but not to the single-item cars)
ckang: yea thats what I was planning on
ckang: reconditioning some old cores
asciilifeform: bah truck battery hates deepcycle
asciilifeform had just such a contraption for some years
BingoBoingo: ckang: If your wattage needs aren't incredible you could always go the smoke detector RTG route
ckang: i could probably even re-use a solar panel BMS system and a decent PSU, charging rate isn't super critical or often
ckang: not familiar with that one
ckang: got me, what is 'smoke detector RTG route'
ckang: not finding much
BingoBoingo: ckang: You take a source of radioactive decay and hook a thermocouple up to it. Smoke detector means you harvest the emiters from the smoke detectors for your decay source.
BingoBoingo: Similar things are used to power light houses, radio beacons, and space probes
ckang: whats this used for? im thinking more of a digital solution
BingoBoingo: ckang: Things like http://bellona.org/news/nuclear-issues/radioactive-waste-and-spent-nuclear-fuel/2003-11-two-strontium-powered-lighthouses-vandalised-on-the-kola-peninsula
BingoBoingo: It is as maintenance free as such a thing can be
ckang: ohhhhhhhh
ckang: power source
ckang: i feel like trying to buy something like that would bring all sorts of 3 letter agencies to my place
asciilifeform: lol BingoBoingo , world's most expensive power source
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform, you don't deepcycle it. that's why you pile a lot of them.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: sit long enuff without mains current, and you get deepcycle
asciilifeform: unless ( like e.g. castle mircea_popescustein ) you have diesel backup
mircea_popescu: yes, well, different usecase.
asciilifeform: typically 'large pile' is for moar wattage
asciilifeform: and expectation is that diesel takes over in 3-5min , however long it takes to crank
asciilifeform does not currently have diesel, but also ~never gets outage of moar than 1hr or so; hence has large pile of cells
BingoBoingo: ckang: You could always get your own turbine and go off the grid if you prefer something different. Turbine isn't picky about fuels.
mircea_popescu: the numbers are worth the mention : if you get 500 old truck/high power car batteries, literally, and you put them in 4 lines (gets about 49 - 50V or so), you now have somewhere in the range of 500 * AT LEAST 50 Ah in your hands. that's 25 KWh for the more common measure. ☟︎
mircea_popescu: takes a while to eat that much ; but yes, if your power outages are days rather than hours, this needs a generator system associated.
mircea_popescu: ckang, "rtg" is how soviets used to power their satellites. put a chunk of cesium or plutonium next to some electric contacts.
asciilifeform: storage for 500 old batteries ( esp of the normal truck type, that vents H2 ) ain't free
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform, depends where you live :D but yes.
asciilifeform: in mircea_popescustan -- ~free, put'em in a shed, aha
mircea_popescu: quite. up on this hill, with the winds...
mircea_popescu: airtight would be expensive. well aerated, that's easy.
asciilifeform: i expect corrosion is a bitch in mircea_popescustan tho
mircea_popescu: much less a problem than in wash dc sprintime.
mircea_popescu: springtime*.
mircea_popescu: it's not THAT wet, really.
ckang: i think for most of my stuff, i would like a staged UPS that could power off the least important stuff first (tied to mains, monitors, speakers) then allow enough time for shutdown of other things (possibly using shunts to measure load) and let maybe 1 server stay up and networking gear
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: it wasn't 'some contacts', seebek-style bimetallic generator is terrible ; typically they had peltier pile
mircea_popescu: anyway. at least here the 500 could be had for under 10k. which is VERY reasonable considering what "professional" solutions cost ; and how their performance stacks up.
asciilifeform: ( you're prolly thinking of the seebek generator with kerosene wick from 1950s )
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform, i was BEING DERROGATORY ok
asciilifeform: lol
asciilifeform: after yrs of grunting with handmade ups, i found the magic pill -- surplus industrial ones
mircea_popescu: that also works. in asciilifeformlands, ~free.
asciilifeform: and turns out not simply pretentious rubbish, they have useful knobs ( to gauge decay , overvoltage, line noise, etc )
asciilifeform: aha
asciilifeform: in monkeystan, can't even be had for money, i expect. not without commissioning d00ds with suitcases
mircea_popescu: quite.
BingoBoingo: In other news, asciilifeform left me here with an ice cream habit. I not thought to invesitgate the local ice cream scene in depth until mircea_popescu mentioned it is the necessary accompaniment to long walks. Last night I consumed 1/4 kilo of bananasplit.
ckang: asciilifeform: what did yo end up with for the BMS?

asciilifeform: delivered, moorings hammered back into shape , enracked, (where applicable) en-disked, en-os'd, powered, sshkeyed, tested.
asciilifeform: also obtained and set up a 2nd GB switch in rack; and a 220v mains distributor; and a ip kvm ( which annoyingly requires... java on the remote control end, but 'with torch in daylight' to this very day i cannot find ANY ipkvm that does not commit this type of warcrime )
asciilifeform: if anyone needs the kvm, plz page BingoBoingo to plug it in, and asciilifeform to show how to connect to it
asciilifeform: note that rockchip boxen cannot use the kvm, they have no kbd or display
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo, earlier, i put a slab of frozen mango jam with some ground ice and a frozen banana in the blender. the resulting slush was duly dolloped in expectant cups. we moved to the balcony and for a little all could be heard was spoons scraping on cup, but then "how long since you showered ?" "umm... yesterday ?" *splat*

asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: synthetic opium, popular in modern northameristan; lethal dose is iirc within 10% of ordinary dose
mircea_popescu: right.

ckang: his ex-gf, sarah torrents

BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> BingoBoingo, do you happen to know which ? << Narrowed it down to 2014
asciilifeform: ckang: such proofy proof
mircea_popescu: who [among the set of people who do weird 2010-kiddo pills] would want to [trade some of this apparently valuable crap] for sticking fingers up some ugly fat dood's asshole.
ckang: asciilifeform: it will take some time to find again but if you want to i can try
mircea_popescu: and don't tell me "this billionaire i talk to actually has pics of it", because that's really not how examples work.
asciilifeform: ckang: i dun particularly need it for anyffin
mircea_popescu: ckang, let me unwrap the challenge here further, for the record. so, the claim "he would let you stick 4 fingers in his ass for a dose" made by ex-gf is being challenged on credibility grounds through this following two pronged approach : 1. it is seemingly unlikely any of the poor who actually hold physical $item in discussion would nevertheless be subjectively rich enough to trade it away, especially for something as unlike
mircea_popescu: ly to be valuable to them as "shoving fingers in guy's assohle" ; while 2. ex-gfs will say anything.
mircea_popescu: see ?
ckang: ill find it ;) give me a min, she was pretty straight forward with things
mircea_popescu: he doesn't see.
ckang: no i see what you are saying
mircea_popescu: at issue isn't whether you can produce a graphical representation of the claim.
ckang: but i want to re-listen anyways
mircea_popescu: a ok then!
