phf: asciilifeform: right, not all of the svgs have multiline base64. and you'll notice that some of the files have windows newlines. i think mp-wp codebase is the one that would benefit the most from the autoformat tool discussed in logs..
mircea_popescu: indeed.
mircea_popescu: layers and generations involved etc.
phf: i ended up adding windows newline rendering support, which i'm rather pleased with, e.g. http://btcbase.org/patches/mp-wp_genesis/hunk/blog/.htaccess though the pressed version is still broken.. http://btcbase.org/patches/mp-wp_genesis/tree/blog/.htaccess

spyked: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-06-05#1820744 <-- yes, although I'm personally not convinced one way or the other. my q is, should "allcomers" (e.g. people without WoT presence) even be able to comment? I don't know, maybe the question itself has no merit, mircea_popescu is of course much more qualified than me to establish this.☝︎
a111: Logged on 2018-06-05 16:42 mircea_popescu: spyked, the first portion is interesting imo. why shouldn't anyone be able to live comments ? something in the vein of "if every tree was carved any time anyone on the trail thought about some girl, we'd have toothpick forests" ?
spyked: the question stemmed from "what are valid inputs for blogotron?", which led to "should comments be permitted for anons, or should they be predicated upon identity?". otherwise I very much like the current organization and I believe that venues that don't allow inline commenting (such as thetarpit in its current state) are only "half blogs", not fully.
spyked: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-06-05#1820747 <-- I dun disagree at all. as far as the thought experiment goes, I still wonder, though, whether those edges of productivity follow from *all* the lines of mp-wp code and is more than the sum of each, or whether there's a lot of extra crud in there. perhaps overly naively/boyishly at the time, I started my (still ongoing) experiment the other way around ("what is the minimum number of lines to☝︎

mircea_popescu: so my question to you is : should someone who ~doesn't even own a computer~ (because no, her retarded "iPhone; CPU iPhone OS 11_2 like Mac OS X)" eminently is not a computer, nor anything even remotely LIKE mac os x) be allowed to comment ?
mircea_popescu: should billiardaires even talk to the lowly bank clerks on the internets ? just how haughty shall we get before there's really nothing left to talk about ?
spyked sees mircea_popescu's point
mircea_popescu: (that, btw, is a reference. to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hlVuu0nhiUw )
spyked: anyway, given my limited experience with wp (nowadays I just lul at the attackers from republic of moldova trying to gain wp-admin access for the old blog), I am ready to admit that mp-wp's may be the optimal permeability of this membrane. I was even tempted to switch to mp-wp, but I'm hoping to see trilema antispam implemented in Lisp at some point in the future.

mircea_popescu: by now it's a hoyota, son of used car lot owner built himself a car out of parts.

mircea_popescu: right. i was discussing the former. which, contrary to hopes&aspirations, owns the market.

asciilifeform: i was hoping he'd find something that can hold a crew of 2, at least on occasion
asciilifeform: but if this is all that fits in the budget, then so be it
mod6: what are the rental terms? 1yr contract?
mod6: (could always find a bigger place later once we're above water)
BingoBoingo: It's a one year contract.
mod6: Ok, cool.
BingoBoingo: There is a point at which continuing to burn more time on the real estate thing yields diminishing returns. And when the days start getting longer, negative returns.
ben_vulpes: not just true for real estate!
mircea_popescu: danielpbarron, drat.
mircea_popescu: what am i going to do!

phf: asciilifeform: yeah, i was going by various spec sites, but i have a dongle that handles that
asciilifeform: phf: i had to go through several, before one worked
phf: afaiu the special baud rate is rk exclusive
asciilifeform: ( the only one that ended up speaking 1500000 baud, was ftdi's )

Mocky is picturing trying to fuck a med student with a microscope >> http://btcbase.org/log/2018-06-06#1820960☝︎
a111: Logged on 2018-06-06 15:37 mircea_popescu: all my experience comes from fucking med students.
asciilifeform: lol
mircea_popescu: they do have tinier snatches than average, i've noticed.
mircea_popescu: some of the microscopy-est clits + clitoral hoods + labia arrangements i ever saw lived between the legs of med students.
asciilifeform: in other noose, http://btcbase.org/log/2018-06-06#1821018 apparently requires a https://archive.li/9wxqo ( 'partners only' google proprietary dongle ) to enable uart; this, in turn, appears to be a usb-c 'debug accessory mode' magic-voltage set ; and it is deliberately (see below) poorly specced. i dug for the detail, turns out that it is likely being sat on by usg.google et al, because it also enables talking to recent intel iron ro☝︎
a111: Logged on 2018-06-06 17:22 asciilifeform: the schematics whisperer d00d suggested that it also has the uart brought out on hidden pins ; i have a test adapter cable due in this wk that will test this theory
asciilifeform: otkit (r/w memory etc via usb jack)
asciilifeform: ( various whisperings at https://archive.li/lQydM and elsewhere, for the expert entomologist only )
mircea_popescu: heh
mircea_popescu: so "it works until you try to", right.
Mocky: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-06-06#1821029 >> i tried your recipe (combination of your 2 recipes) 2 days ago and couldn't get the emerge @world to work to succeed. I didn't report since you mention your missing file and link to Trinque's post☝︎
a111: Logged on 2018-06-06 17:59 danielpbarron: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-06-06#1820856 << not really. i don't have any ready and i don't know if my recipe even works any more. i'm currently using a debian install for eulora
Mocky: I figured I'd give it a try since I couldnt get my old 2014 version to install, nor my 2016 version
