mircea_popescu: re http://btcbase.org/log/2018-05-15#1813559 : one important palliative measure would be for ben_vulpes to create a strong presence on localbitcoins, if nowhere else. there's people there willing to do wires for you, and you never know when it comes handy in a pinch.☝︎
a111: Logged on 2018-05-15 15:12 mircea_popescu: aite, let's get back to this.
mircea_popescu: but in general, you can't leave this as a dangling pointer. it's a significant threat, gotta be defended in depth.
asciilifeform: iirc last anybody tried localbitcoins, it showed no signs of life
mircea_popescu: link ?
asciilifeform: http://btcbase.org/log/2015-01-28#995446☝︎
a111: Logged on 2015-01-28 07:42 mircea_popescu: In Bitcoin this responsibility is based not in law, but fact. LocalBitcoins chose to fart on their plates and some of their weaker customers who trusted them are now ill. It doesn't matter where what was served was contaminated, but that LocalBitcoins served poison. Yes the consumers ought to have known better, but in the future knowing better means escewing a venue that sells turds as sausages on the virtue of both be
asciilifeform: and possibly elsewhere
asciilifeform: ( e.g. http://btcbase.org/log/2015-01-08#969522 )☝︎
a111: Logged on 2015-01-08 05:10 BingoBoingo: As far as anyone knows localbitcoins is 3 Belgians and a 5Is leak.
mircea_popescu: iirc that was a) a quote and b) re buying btc, not selling it.
mircea_popescu: but yes, it is basically a small fetlife from yurp.
asciilifeform: quote << apparently yes
mircea_popescu: anyways -- something is better than nothing ; i'm not insisting on the specific someting, merely provided by means of example. as long as there's something.
mircea_popescu: because this situartion whereby "nothing, because something's flawer" is really a 2nd approximation of death.
mircea_popescu: flawed*
asciilifeform: right, this item gotta be solved
mircea_popescu: most people kinda discover this when kids reach school age -- while no such thing as perfect school... nevertheless, gotta send them somewhere!
mircea_popescu: anyway, considering how little your needs are (what was it, a few k's worth of monthly wire ?), if indeed the whole of localbitcoins can't provide against hard currency, THAT is a qntra lulz item right fucking there.
mircea_popescu: i'm chuckling already. i mean... you know ?
asciilifeform: https://localbitcoins.com/instant-bitcoins/?action=sell&country_code=UY&amount=&currency=UYU&place_country=UY&online_provider=ALL_ONLINE&find-offers=Search does seem to report ~something~
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo ^
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform, i don'\t mean uy AT ALL.
mircea_popescu: talk to whatever, belgium. denmark. dutchlands. any and all countries work, you want a ~wire~.
asciilifeform: wire gotta land somewhere neh
asciilifeform: or am i misconfiging the search box
mircea_popescu: sure, you know the bank acct.
asciilifeform: right, i assumed 'country' field is 'to where wire'
mircea_popescu: i somehow doubt that.
asciilifeform: worth a test
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo mod6 ben_vulpes ^
mircea_popescu: odds are, "country" is "where person selected they;'re located".
asciilifeform: the worst it can do, afaik, is to silently swallow the test probe
mircea_popescu: ie, entirely uninteresting field for you.
asciilifeform: makes sense
mircea_popescu: and if it does that, you got an item. remember the first actually deeded item, smickles' report re i don't recall which scamfest ?
mircea_popescu: predated kako's run to hungary to examine w/e "miner" maker. you recall that btw ?
mircea_popescu: or too early.
asciilifeform: smickles ? i was tuned in but not speaking iirc
asciilifeform: ( had nfi what was what )
mircea_popescu: http://trilema.com/2012/icbitse-the-bucket-shop/#selection-71.0-71.38
mircea_popescu: aand http://btcbase.org/log/2013-09-06#291189 / http://trilema.com/2013/primeasic-most-likely-a-scam/☝︎
a111: Logged on 2013-09-06 20:10 kakobrekla: we debunked primeasic on the second day
asciilifeform: that one i recall
asciilifeform: ( the 2013 item )
mircea_popescu: anyway, by no means isolated effort. continuing through eg http://trilema.com/2015/minigame-smg-june-2015-statement/#footnote_3_62044 or http://trilema.com/2018/minigame-smg-april-2018-statement/#selection-1091.0-1091.47 or etcetera.
mircea_popescu: to add to that pile : looked at "adclerks.com" recently ; advertising item that claims to take bitcoin. discovered that actually the largest sites listed are tiny, and it's altogether dubious the sum of the top dozen or w/e actually adds up to trilema.
mircea_popescu: advertise if you can!
BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> odds are, "country" is "where person selected they;'re located". << That's the deal. People doing wires do wires. Just gotta route around USistan
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: ideally can supply BingoBoingo's piggy this way, and free up asciilifeform's usd for rockchip etc physical plant construction and delivery
asciilifeform: ( tho i'ma prolly still need a hand with those, from other l1 folx with lulazon accts )
mircea_popescu: this is so bizarre. it's like talking to the insane.
asciilifeform: hm?
mircea_popescu: how did dc bank account morph into "BingoBoingo's piggy" and why can't you have the same process for, eg, ordering shit off amazon.
asciilifeform: potentially can !
mircea_popescu: so how did a.1 turn into b.1 while a.2 is entirely aside ? no working classifier, what is it ?
asciilifeform: it doesn't, however, it wires tho. would need a specialized 'localbitcoinist' afaik .
asciilifeform: *eat wires
mircea_popescu: amazon ?
asciilifeform: correct
mircea_popescu: when the hell did that happen ? im pretty sure i ever only paid it via wire
mircea_popescu: not that i use it much.
asciilifeform: afaik eats strictly usa bankcard.
mircea_popescu: no fukcing way.
mircea_popescu: usa bank card is what, 40% of the market.
mircea_popescu: you think amazon doesn't have exactly the same problems as pizarro ?
asciilifeform will actually rtfm and find out
asciilifeform: the other thing, i doubt that lulazon is sole source for anything. merely fast/convenient in asciilifeform's locale. but e.g. the rc board ~is~ available elsewhere
asciilifeform: ( on top of mircea_popescu prolly being right that it can be made to eat wires, if coaxed )
mircea_popescu: solutions abound ; but yes they don't fall in the eager open mouths, have to be actually applied to work.
mircea_popescu: for that matter -- specializing a few localbitcoinists, if this is at all possible, has the advantage of you know -- adding people.
mircea_popescu: the more one tends his garden, the more one has shit to rely on later.
asciilifeform: troo
lobbes: fwiw amazon does allow paying via (us based) checking acct.
mircea_popescu: lobbes, were you looking to buy some btc btw ?
asciilifeform: lobbes: it does. doesn't do anything for wires tho. and i looked in the docs, word 'wire' is only mentioned in re third-party sellers on lulazon being able to accept them ( on own power ) as payment
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform, this is fine for you neh, talk to rc suppliers, qwho are all in china, until one wants to sell 96 pcs on wire. this way you know who to talk to about ~other~ pieces also later on, as i fucking doubt anyone only sells rc on amazon yes ?
lobbes: asciilifeform, yeah, seems it is only ACH
mircea_popescu: in general, the PERSONALIZATION of all relationships is the key to victory. yes, you met her at the casino bar, but this doesn't mean anything abotu the fucking casino bar.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: not being a complete idiot, asciilifeform found several independent suppliers of rc.
mircea_popescu: and same for chicks you pick off any other fetlife, whether they call themselves "localzon" or "amabitcoins" or ANYTHING ELSE. meat markets, all of them.
mircea_popescu: find some hunks you like and ~take them home~.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform, cool. any of them want to be wirepaid ?
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: will likely find out soon, i wrote quote reqs
mircea_popescu: cool.
lobbes: mircea_popescu, well, optimally I'd be buying a little btc every certain frequency. Just converted some fiat a month or so ago though buying for pizarro
mircea_popescu: it'd be indeed surprising if a) anyone selling useful electronics wasn't from china or b) anyone from china couldn't eat wires. and so there you go.
mircea_popescu: lobbes, a cool, so you don't need an introduction then.
mircea_popescu kinda doesn't know when these are needed nowadays o.O
lobbes: but yeah, I'm almost always interested if pizarro needs some lulazon materials ordered
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: the 1 non-cn component ( aside from asciilifeform-crafted ironworks ) is the samsung ssd
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform, alrighty, but by now pressure's off you by a degree of magnitude at least. which was the idea, let's put out fires before they catch.
asciilifeform: aha
mircea_popescu: don't a) put yourself in situations where you're overpressured only so that b) you can complain you find yourself in situation of overpressure. whole fucking trick to management, that.
asciilifeform not deep ocean fish, does not particularly relish megapressures
mircea_popescu: i bet.
trinque is willing to buy btc via pizarro again, as he has already.
trinque: much better than dealing with idiot exchanges
lobbes: verily
lobbes: or randos on bitcoin-otc
mircea_popescu: anyway, amazon also sells larger items, such as electric equipment, boats, w/e. how the fuck they do that via visa is anyone's guess.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: can buy tanker with visa, if one insists. ( and they also issue own card, and profit thereby , good % of users have it )
mircea_popescu: not in my experience, they settle in 60 days or some dumb shit.
mircea_popescu: who the fuck's gonna give visa 60 days layover on a mn or two.
asciilifeform: 'small biznis' in usa is a funny thing.
mircea_popescu: not to mention nobody but the lozeriest of consumer sellers would ~even consider~ the bs "arbitration" and visa opining on things and matters.
asciilifeform: it's a konsoomer/smallbiznis retail joint.
mircea_popescu solidly despises anyone accepting credit cards as means of payment. they're the modern day equivalent of medieval pub wenches, there to have children of unknown paternity each year.
asciilifeform: ( and it is unknown to asciilifeform whether anyone actually buys the 100k boats/planes/etc one can find listed on lulazon. it is entirely possible that : not )
mircea_popescu: well sure as fuck not with a card lol. unless i suppose the occasional "platinum iridium black iridiscent" cuck
mircea_popescu: but those 90s items are kind of a dying breed.
asciilifeform: dun forget, decade passed since mircea_popescu toured usaistan; cards with 100k limit are common nao
asciilifeform: i shred the scamola 'preapproved!111' from these, ~daily
mircea_popescu: heh
asciilifeform: they literally fill my postbox on occasion
asciilifeform: asciilifeform is probably on some list of egregious idjits somewhere
mircea_popescu: haha
asciilifeform: the most annoying thing, sometimes the ~actual card~ is in there
asciilifeform: i had to upgrade the crosscuttron, to eat these...
mircea_popescu: could just throw out whole neh ?
asciilifeform: ahahahaha good one
lobbes: heh
mircea_popescu: >D
asciilifeform: nao they introduced ~metal~ cards. but these dun get sent unsoliced -- yet. when they start to, i'ma have to... idk, first burn, then slice what remains with guillotine ?
asciilifeform: *unsolicited
mircea_popescu: i hear dali made urine etchings.
asciilifeform: i would be surprised if not
asciilifeform: hey ben_vulpes , trinque , mod6 , do you also get these horrors in the post ?
asciilifeform: or just me.
lobbes gets
asciilifeform: ha
mircea_popescu: anyway, this discussion is vividly bringing to mind acquaintance there. erry day he'd religiously shred the mail spam. "hey, why do you not read it ?" "well, it's spam, waste of time to read. that's why i shred". erry day, half hour, at the least. saving self from the waste of time.
trinque: sure, one year 0%, then only 25%, and etc
mircea_popescu: you know i never got one ? in my entire life!
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: they get shredded not to shove'em moar compactly into rubbish bin, but because there are 'specialists' who collect'em from rubbish, fill'em out, then swipe from postbox when 'activated' card comes in, then max it, and luser finds out when wages start vanishing
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform, i realise.
asciilifeform: ( at one time i dismissed this as a laborious/rare scam, until met several people who ended up in it )
mircea_popescu: it was rare in the 90s ; it's pestilentially common now.
mircea_popescu: more than half of the "global economy threatening" "fraud" comes from this.
asciilifeform: sad part is that it dun actually ~require~ collecting rubbish, these days...
asciilifeform: aaha
asciilifeform: 'lulzcharges from $distantlocale on existing card' is considerably less painful for konsoomer in usa, however, than 'brand new card in yername in hands of $joker'
lobbes: apparently us kidz these days are getting their ss#s harvested from the numerous 'ransomware attacks' on schools (i.e phishing government employees to give access to poorly protected data)
lobbes: lulzy out there
asciilifeform: lobbes: typically they're harvested straight from vendor's db
asciilifeform: no xyzware necessary
mircea_popescu: except the way it works is restaurant/bar/whartever you frequent is stuck hiring the fucktarded neets, who have massive turnover, and are potheads/convicts universally. just a matter of time before one swipes your card, and then go, explain that th4e charges were bogus at restaurant down the street you visit weekly.
mircea_popescu: it takes a dose of imbecillity on the level of such displayed in fargo, to use credit card as a means of payment.
trinque: meanwhile creating however many billions of "fraud" within which to hide whatever the bank wants.
mircea_popescu: they ~are~ useful, principally in the sense of giving agent a pile of them when sent on mission. but that's about it.
asciilifeform: ( see also thread http://btcbase.org/log/2014-02-13#499334 )☝︎
a111: Logged on 2014-02-13 01:00 asciilifeform: fact is, 'carding' could disappear overnight if the card issuers wished it. (even in countries with ubiquitous old-style magnetic readers. devices which present the correct magnetism, using one-time account #s, are trivial.)
asciilifeform: multilayered and quite complex scamolade pie.
mircea_popescu: also known as "united states economy".
mircea_popescu: because there really isn't anything else.

ben_vulpes: far more interesting story than context-free bitchin about the spam imho
ben_vulpes doesn't depreciate shredder blades on anything but the plastic; everything else gets packed into the prepaid return envelopes
asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: sounds laborious
asciilifeform: what, if you get 17 turds, you open'em all ?!
ben_vulpes: why bother
asciilifeform: or do you conscript the childrenz to do it
mircea_popescu: my takeaway from this is, "if establishing natoreich household, saw oil barrel in half, dump grill charcoal + mail there weekly or w/e"
ben_vulpes: one only needs the single return envelope...
mod6: i use firepit + healthy dose of gasoline

mod6: we will need a run of FG tho 'eh?
ben_vulpes: mod6: lemme finish
mod6: my bad
asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: 96 units == 1 trip, unless of course you want to mix rc + conventional servers in delivery
ben_vulpes: in the meantime, i'll focus on a landing page, wading through the sea of omg that is webhosting forums and planning in detail how to filter the sea, and booting alternatives to extant l1folks for 10kusd btc sales
ben_vulpes: asciilifeform: ah i had some notion that you maxed out at 2 chassis, if we can do it in a single run that'd be great
ben_vulpes: asciilifeform: we're not shipping any more single servers down there until uy1 is gagging or l1 asks nicely
asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: i delivered 4u of box
asciilifeform: recall.
asciilifeform: just like specced.
ben_vulpes: i do, clearly!
asciilifeform: ( plus rc pilot, in rucksack, lol )
ben_vulpes: my mistaken misunderstanding that you could only do 2 chassis of RC plant is incorrect then, which is actually cool
ben_vulpes: i thought it was 24/chassis, 2u/chassis and (for some reason, obviously incorrect), 2 chassis per trip.
asciilifeform: 1 man can carry 4u, or rather 100kg ( it is possible to have >4u in regulation-sized trunks ) plus rucksack 10kg.

ave1: note that the script creates cross-compilers first
ave1: so, 'aarch64-musl-linux' is x86_64 exe and created aarch64 static bins
ave1: the static binaries, being static, run on all linuxes be it glibc or musl
ave1: the cross-compilers are then used to make 'native' compilers
ave1: so the aarch64-...-native run on aarch64 and are static

mircea_popescu: we'll have to fabricate more ; which is in the early stages.
ben_vulpes: right right well knowing that we booughtcha out i'm asking for a quote hoping (since confirmed) that a new run was in the works or to get one underway
mircea_popescu: mind also that 100 fgs are somewhat expensive ; and you're cash starved. neither for time nor for money do you want to marry the rockchip pile to fgs
asciilifeform: iirc dpb still has some in stock
ben_vulpes: scratch that; because we need fg i'm asking for 'em.
ben_vulpes: asciilifeform: those were running at a what 4x markup or something stiff last i saw?
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform, incidentally, wouldn't we be better served by making a proper run, 500 say ?
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: really i was hoping for next run to be the MB/sec lyso crystal fg. but, potentially, yes
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform, honestly, it can wait for the better model. not like he's ~without~ fgs.
asciilifeform: aha

asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: paying buyers, as they come
ben_vulpes: asciilifeform: and what, ship 'em onebyone?
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes, it's a significant chunk of the cost of the rc, you realise ? YOU should be answering this, on the basis of, what you can sell.
mircea_popescu: you already have a pile of what, 50 or so ?
asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: no, from current stock
mircea_popescu: you got three items, shared, rc, rc+fg. you tell us, which sells in what proportion to what.
ben_vulpes: ya reasonable, will answer on the next context switch

mircea_popescu: the " the price inevitably dips" theory works A LOT better if it doesn't have to dip under 6k.

mircea_popescu: incidentally asciilifeform is nsa fabricating chassisen for pizarro ? or is asciilifeform of his own independent self ?
ben_vulpes: unpleasant to run an estimate that comes out kind of marginal and watch hopesndreams go up in smoke as reality sets in
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes, it's a tight rope, either way can get unpleasant.
mircea_popescu: that's why it's important to run documented estimates rather than either loose or tight estimates.
ben_vulpes: sure, setting wrong expectations with scary large numbers has its own failure modes
ben_vulpes tightens

ben_vulpes: well i got the rewrite, but can't get mpwp to serve at /y/m/d/post
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes, what's in your settings ?
mircea_popescu: specifically wp-admin/options-permalink.php
ben_vulpes: i have the permalink structure as /index.php/year/month/day , but when i switch it over to /year/month/day it 404's
mircea_popescu: ie you clicked the "day and name" item ?
ben_vulpes: correct
mircea_popescu: hm. is your path-to-wp set incorrectly ?
ben_vulpes: where is that?
mircea_popescu: options-general.php address url, two fields.
ben_vulpes: ah, pizarroisp.net
ben_vulpes: i think that's correct
mircea_popescu: "http://pizarroisp.net" for both ?
ben_vulpes: yup.
mircea_popescu: it is possible your theme is not supportive of your directory structure. try "custom structure" = "/%year%/%postname%/" ?
ben_vulpes: nope
ben_vulpes: it tries to redirect to what the right url should be, though
ben_vulpes: however 404's.

a111: Logged on 2018-05-16 04:19 ave1: it does not matter if the linux is glibc or musl, I tested also on a clean ubuntu arm64 image
ave1: diana_coman, Sure no problem, I'll put it on the site and send a link. Which one did you try?
diana_coman: ave1, see the issues in log here: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-05-15#1813795☝︎
a111: Logged on 2018-05-15 21:50 diana_coman: and fwiw I tried running from there also ./aarch64-musl-linux-cpp -> same result
diana_coman: basically the non-native was not arm; the native at least ran but then the script failed anyway
diana_coman: I did not investigate further but I can do that
ave1: yes, the non-native is a cross compiler, so run on x86_64 and compile for aarch64
diana_coman: aaa, so it's x86_64_for_aarch64
diana_coman: got it
ave1: yes, the original scripts only produced cross compilers, and the new ones now also create "real/native" compilers
ave1: I will update the directory names as this is now confusing
ave1: btw, I've not tried running the scripts with the generated native compilers, I always start with the binary from adacore
ave1: I would be interested in how the scripts failed on your side
diana_coman: well, I was testing so at least tested it to break it, ofc :P
diana_coman: sure, I'll paste the stuff today and ping you
diana_coman: ave1, http://p.bvulpes.com/pastes/66jDf/?raw=true

ave1: sha512sum
diana_coman: thanks, I'll try it
ave1: as for the error, can you go to build/build-bootstrap/binutils-2.25.1/build1 and paste the config.log?
ave1: this seems to be the very first "real" step, compile the binutils for your own system. it may be a CFLAGS problem
ave1: oh wait, you are running the scripts on the rockchip?
diana_coman: ave1, yes, that was on the rockchip
ave1: then the ada-build.sh needs adaptation
diana_coman: from yesterday
ave1: so far I only ran these starting on x86_64
ave1: one sec
diana_coman: kk
ave1: it's the 'build-ada.sh' script
ave1: it's last line is now: ../extra/build-tarballs.sh $PREFIX musl ada x86_64 aarch64
ave1: for starting on aarch64 it should be
ave1: ../extra/build-tarballs.sh $PREFIX musl ada aarch64 x86_64
ave1: i.e. aarch64 first
diana_coman: ah, let me change that and try it again then
ave1: also you can drop the x86_64, as you will probably not be cross compiling to x86_64
ave1: from aarch64
diana_coman: well, I'd rather cross compile too if it works because then I can use the rockchip as launchpad for everything else, why not
diana_coman: anyways, might as well try it now
ave1: cool idea!
ave1: btw the build process is not small, (nothing is cleaned during the run, to get partial build running)
ave1: so 14G for build
ave1: and 4.1G for install
ave1: note also, that a lot of it is disk bound, the run takes longer with slow disks
ave1: bbl
diana_coman: ave1, seems it needs more tweaking, as it still fails the same: http://p.bvulpes.com/pastes/IqoYy/?raw=true
diana_coman: good to know really; perhaps add those notes to the post so it's all in one place?

asciilifeform: incidentally asciilifeform is still in active search for a suitable chassis : general-purpose atx units that i've found, are unsuitable, they lose ~40% of the internal space to nonremovable drive cages, which do NO good in rockchiptron . additionally, a good half of the chassis on the market, are ( for no reason known to me ) not full depth, these can be rejected right away

asciilifeform does wish that arm64 were available in ecc ram ( or even upgradeable!! ram at all ) variant; but 'if wishes were horses'
mircea_popescu: otoh arm is cheap enough to run 50 and pretend you're 1950s space program.

asciilifeform: aaactually
asciilifeform: ( spoiler : they had ecc )
mircea_popescu: yaya. magnetism in space.
mircea_popescu: they didn't have ecc. they ~implemented~ ecc exactly in the way described.
asciilifeform: well yes, martians did not land and hand it to their waiting arms
mircea_popescu: well so then.
mircea_popescu: the nightmare this is becoming for the "nobus" bunch though. /me cackles.
asciilifeform: ( the difficulty with 'majoritator' -- or what is it even called in engl.?? -- system, is the component itself , where the n-of-m magick itself happens. it is inescapably the weak link. )
mircea_popescu: there is that.
mircea_popescu: but can also be implemented as a distributed system, ie, EXACTLY LIKE IN PEOPLE.
asciilifeform: in other noose, some basic annotation of certain major phuctorisms is in place, e.g. http://phuctor.nosuchlabs.com/factor/412 , http://phuctor.nosuchlabs.com/factor/4961 , http://phuctor.nosuchlabs.com/factor/384
mircea_popescu: where any one component admits TWO levels of failure : direct failure, and meta-failure. the former warrants destruction.
mircea_popescu: (meta-failure, of course, being the failure to conceptualize it failed)
asciilifeform: sadly the machine that does not eventually meta-fail , is not yet built
mircea_popescu: to drive it into the dirt : a) suppose you want reliable addition, for which purpose you comission rockchip machines 1 through 6. b) you pass along the string "5+6". the answers come 11 11 11 65524 11 11. c) machine 3 notices it is the only one with that result via its distributed n-of-m magick module, and returns "op fail" instead.
mircea_popescu: suppose instead c'. machine failed to so notice, returned 65524 : step d. the other machines return "reject 3."
mircea_popescu: and yes, this can very well be implemented as, "overvotlage its power line"
asciilifeform: right, and one of the major selling points of machines with multiple nic
asciilifeform: ( another wish list item re arm64 )
mircea_popescu: at that.
asciilifeform: also mircea_popescu's scheme readily scales to the earlier 'uci' item
mircea_popescu: it does. being whence it came from.
asciilifeform: ( where to order a computation, you inject it into any particular node in the net )
mircea_popescu: "trust, but verify" in the original persian.
asciilifeform: observe that correctness guarantees are much easier to arrive at than secrecy guarantee
mircea_popescu , incidentally, is a huge persian poetry fan. i mean the pre rinascimento stuff.
asciilifeform: ( distributed arithmetizing under the three basic enemy models, 'randomly broken', 'honest-curious', 'malicious' -- is entire mathematical subfield, and unfortunately will not fit 'in the margin of this page' )
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform, secrecy is not so much a public matter. your harem slaves will keep your secrets, but why are you talking secretly outside of their bodies ?
asciilifeform also fan of old persians, but reads'em in ru transl, his persian-fu being laughably weak at present time
mircea_popescu: it's one of the major cultural languages least comprehended by contemporary hermeneutics.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: observation was mainly re uci , where enemy model is 'some % of nodes captured and instrumented by hitler'
mircea_popescu: sure.

mircea_popescu: doh.

mircea_popescu: i dunno, i have scant interest in current persian. might as well care about neogreek. to what, to see how they decided to transliterate mcdonalds ?

asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: idea is that a working ( built out, and populated ) pizarro, could , in principle, eventually free asciilifeform from the unspeakable nonsense on which he burns most of his time currently.
mircea_popescu: yes, but what's the significant problem with nsa selling pizarro custom built chassisen ?
mircea_popescu: when you last flew over (on nsa dime) we sold them servers an' nobody died.
asciilifeform: no particular problem, aside from the stark contrast between the 100% repeatability and hygiene of , e.g., FG, and the possibly nsa-laden ( i don't design arm crystal, or the pcb, or the switches, etc ) server
mircea_popescu: okay, but the larger concern seems to be that you'd rather put all your fabrication under nsa than have to explain to shareholders why not and wherefore in the future.
mircea_popescu: there's not some rule that all nsa products must be available to the general public.
mircea_popescu: it can do consultancy / custom jobs for isps/dcs, why the hell not.
asciilifeform: i will admit however that i dun particularly like the endgame i see in this, where let's say s.nsa sponsors, produces, and sells to pizarro the iron for shares, ends up owning ~100% of pizarro, and asciilifeform doesn't see a dime of profit until ( merely for starters ) he can even afford mpex acct ( which is a major if, rather than a when, it is quite possibly that neither i nor anyone else will ever actually earn 50 btc , and this
asciilifeform: is even supposing that mircea_popescu doesn't feel like raising his price again ) .
mircea_popescu: it doesn't ~have to~ sell for shares. can sell for cash, why not ?
mircea_popescu: we were doing that as an easement, but it's evidently our option neh ?
asciilifeform: cuz it doesn't have much in the way of cash.
mircea_popescu: well how much pizarro has in the way of cash isn't changed by ooooh i see the problem, you hafta recirculate this is it ?
asciilifeform: recirculate ?
mircea_popescu: if you do it as "myself" you get whatever chassis cost in btc in your pocket. if you do it as s.nsa you don't, is the logic ?
mircea_popescu: except you do, iirc materials get paid anyway ? what am i missing here ?
asciilifeform: this isn't actually the problem, pizarro ( and other l1 folx ! thank you ! ) supplied asciilifeform in recent times with 100% of the btc-buying opportunities he can digest
asciilifeform: the 'i dun like the endgame' observation was specifically in re the scenario where s.nsa ends up swallowing pizarro.
mircea_popescu: i don't think there's any intention of that. i certainly would vote against the measure.
mircea_popescu: and one step down, nsa doesn't even have to permit equity buys, can insist on being paid cash. i was permitting it because i thought it's desirable, but if you don't like it evidently won't happen.
asciilifeform: ( in case it isn't clear, asciilifeform views s.nsa as in effect a scientific collaboration / partizan front , with mircea_popescu , as asciilifeform does not expect to see any coin from it, i would like to be proven wrong about this, but i don't see selling >50 btc's profit worth of anything, esp not if the climb carries on )
mircea_popescu: afaik nsa always was exactly what phf is quoted above as having understood it is : the umbrella org for your manufactory.
mircea_popescu: practically the situation here is this : we can either live in universe 1, whereby chassis for pizarro is produced by you for nsa, and sold by nsa to pizarro. in this world nsa stays what it always was, as above, and pizarro can (at practically your option, as i can go either way) pay with undiscounted bonds for cash-equivalent mateirals ;
mircea_popescu: or else universe 2, whereby chassis for pizarro is produced by you as free agent. in this world we have to now explain what nsa actually is, which becomes a rather difficult task, and pizarro will have to sell its bonds on market, to whatever discount.
asciilifeform: right; but it oughta be understood that my manufacturing capacity is quite limited, until and unless it somehow permits a full-time asciilifeform .
mircea_popescu: but no, the universe 3 whereby "people made a 300 btc donation to unclear future goals" isn't really on the table.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform, and it isn't so understood ?
asciilifeform: i'ma let mircea_popescu say how to crack this nut, my teeth are not up to the job, and pick from his variants, if he dun object
mircea_popescu: i'd very much rather we go with 1. they booked the chassises at 1k each, tentatively, which is not what's going to happen. bill 120% materials like it seems it's becoming the repuiblican "standard profit" and there we go. neh ?
mircea_popescu: they get a cheaper chassis and we get a working economy.
mircea_popescu: mod6, you see holes in ye logic ?
asciilifeform: worx for me. but ftr if ben_vulpes and mod6 succumb to temptation of equity-buying, and mircea_popescu , in turn, agrees, it will likely lead to the regrettable situation pictured earlier.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform, im not gonna let them. i had no idea you didn't think it's the most excellent the idea. now that i do, hey.
asciilifeform: i try to at least sometimes think n-moves ahead..
mircea_popescu: i dunno why i assumed that's the case, but good you said something, as it'd never have occured to me to ask, either.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform, anyway, an' ftr, if your concern is that you're underweight pizarro, you can just as well do a second round. see if mod6 wants to either a) give it more btc or else b) move into a minority position. pizarro would certainly benefit from a larger piggy giving it more solidity etc, so you can do another 10-20 round either by yourself if mod6 is agreeable or else match together or any which old way. this isn't an u
mircea_popescu: nsurmountable problem.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i have nothing against 's.nsa owns 10%' scenario, early in the game it was a much-needed breathing room for pizarro. but would like to avoid the situation of the well-known children's physics demo, with the two connected balloons.

mod6: So there's a couple things in the air: We're workin on it. :]
mod6: asciilifeform: how do you feel about such a proposition? If I add in another, say 5 or 10 BTC, does this present any problems in your mind?
asciilifeform: mod6: was thinking 5 ( and that'll be most of asciilifeform's coin ... )
mircea_popescu: so what, you do 5 each ?
mircea_popescu: or does mod6 do 20 you do 5 and you're ballooned out ? :D
asciilifeform: if he wants to
asciilifeform: ( i dun insist that other folx 'keep in the pants' )
mircea_popescu: eh, don't be silly.
mircea_popescu: the fact that pizarro is actually well supported is the principal part, for its commercial credit. otherwise, it can't well spend even the 10 it has so far, 1.5 or so go to the rockchips, then it's all "get sales going".
asciilifeform: troo
mod6: <+mircea_popescu> or does mod6 do 20 you do 5 and you're ballooned out ? :D << This is a possibility. Although, I'm not sure I want to outlay that much at the moment.
mod6: But, yeah, we're trying to figure out what makes sense here.
mircea_popescu: so agree that you'll each add another 5btc as circumstances merit ; then pizarro has all the backing it needs and a clear path to success. and if the circumstances "merit" in the sense that it needs rescuing rather than it's expanding, you can fire the management and get someone else or w/e.

mircea_popescu: wires aren't negotiable instruments.

jurov: transferwise was better than paypal as they don't hold funds, they send each wire directly to my bank. if i used paypal, they have no problem to seize whole account.
BingoBoingo: from wikipedoia: "TransferWise routes payments not by transferring the sender's money directly to the recipient, but by redirecting them to the recipient of an equivalent transfer going in the opposite direction. Likewise, the recipient of the transfer receives a payment not from the sender initiating the transfer, but from the sender of the equivalent transfer. This process avoids currency conversion and transfers crossing borders"

asciilifeform: in other noose, phuctor frontend updated; e.g. in http://phuctor.nosuchlabs.com/factors , formatting of individual factor pages , and a few other minor things
asciilifeform: ( the other change, is not interesting to anyone but asciilifeform , but i will put it on the record : the thing has a 'json' api nao )

asciilifeform: ( in re 'minor changes' , nao we indicate if a mod is Fully Phuctored, e.g. http://phuctor.nosuchlabs.com/gpgkey/ABF23DE303BE1C82869D7925F0ACF7A8F54B420469D851530FC4121CBEC0B356 )
