mircea_popescu: oh btw, anyone had cashew ~fruit~ preserve ?
mircea_popescu: it's actually pretty good.
BingoBoingo: I need to look again. I tried to find it in December, but everyone I meet here seems to only be aware of the nuts. I suspect the cashew has a strong nut/fruit divide
BingoBoingo: But we do have sweet blood sausage here
mircea_popescu: nb
BingoBoingo: They do it with orange and pine nuts. The rare sweet food here without dulce de leche
BingoBoingo: Further that Maduro fellow needs to register a key here. I have yet to have a bad arepa.
mircea_popescu: maybe pizarro gives you a week off, you can venezuela!
BingoBoingo: Maybe for the second year's week off. I have a whole list of shit in range of the nice buses I've been hearing about for months and have yet to see.
mircea_popescu: word.
BingoBoingo: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-06-23#1828999 << For the record asciilifeform has met the Venezolana currently in Venezuela who does the Spanish lessons.☝︎

BingoBoingo: Well, he did take the picture.

BingoBoingo: iirc ben_vulpes tambien
BingoBoingo has admits own fault in having more things to blog waiting on burner for the day he can eat, sleep, shit, and irc behind the same lock
mircea_popescu: lol. i can see it.
BingoBoingo: Likewise furing the rest of Uruguay's games, I have agreed to sit in the exact same chair I occupied the previous matches.
BingoBoingo also ought to do a review of the camera I arrived with
BingoBoingo: https://archive.is/aVT4o For the curious. Short story: Factory defaults are Potato, With practice and RTFM does distance well when you turn down the megapixels to 5, at clost distances (1 meter or less) you are completely at the mercy of light
BingoBoingo: And linked the wrong camera
BingoBoingo: https://archive.is/6TJPf << This is it, the other panasonic 25

mircea_popescu: "Welcome to my personal home page. There are many pages on this site, but this one is my own."
mircea_popescu: "A brief page with a few annotations about the Girl Genius web comic, for which a link banner appears to the right, is now on this site." holy shit that's terriblty drawn
mircea_popescu: meanwhile in other great accomplishments of the web era, http://samuel-beckett.net/Waiting_for_Godot_Part1.html
mircea_popescu: !!up diginet
deedbot: diginet voiced for 30 minutes.

mircea_popescu: asciilifeform o btw, re http://btcbase.org/log/2017-01-31#1610177 : supreme court upheld yest.☝︎
a111: Logged on 2017-01-31 15:10 asciilifeform: and to top off the lulzfest, http://archive.is/jMArA : 'Microsoft Corp said it has been cooperating with the Washington State Attorney General's Office, which is suing in federal court to stop President Donald Trump's order restricting immigration from several Muslim countries.'
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: lol!
asciilifeform: speaking of dar-al-islam, asciilifeform had nfi, but the nao-defunkt republic of ichkeria had perhaps the most aggressively oddball national anthem : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tXNI0v3o6K0
asciilifeform: ( ^ subj on lolcattube has en+ru sub . https://archive.li/7E9at << txt translation )
asciilifeform: 'We were born at night when the She-wolf whelped / In the morning, under lions’ howl we were given our names / In eagles’ nests our Mothers nursed us ...' etc
mod6: mornin'
BingoBoingo: Mornin'
mod6: waitin for the furnature?
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform you ddin't know this ?! imo one of their principal achievements
BingoBoingo: mod6: Not quite yet. Waiting for the wait for furniture
mod6: ahh
mircea_popescu: meanwhile in teh basement, https://78.media.tumblr.com/53496b54b17ff35e50e75d9636cce3ff/tumblr_n7gv6bNDdJ1sa6m28o1_1280.jpg
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: waiwat?! the anthem ?!
mircea_popescu: yes.
asciilifeform: holyfuq
asciilifeform: it is admittedly catchy.
asciilifeform: ( and from orcological pov, attractively-impenetrable, to earthling philologist, language isolate )
mircea_popescu: well i mean... it was kindof a fiume republic neh ?
mircea_popescu: what did they do, the anthem and the moscow theatre invasion.
mircea_popescu: very livresque item altogether.
asciilifeform: iirc they also tried the 'caliphate' thing, with the attendant lulz
mircea_popescu: eh, they're islamic in the sense the us is catholic.
asciilifeform: they did manage to pyrrhicly win the 1st war with ru; erry bit as good orc troops as any, perhaps if cherokees had kalash they could have put up same level of fight.
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Cherokees didn't put up a fight. They made a show of imitating white culture and meaningfully resisted nothing imposed on them.
mircea_popescu: ^
asciilifeform: hm.
mircea_popescu: you're mabye thinking sioux ?
asciilifeform: possibly
mircea_popescu: iroquis, pushing a point. quite a lot of pushing.
asciilifeform: maybe not even good continent for comparison, prolly maori better example.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform anyway, i dunno how isolate. "Joƶalla ya marşo" looks exactly like gypsy.
BingoBoingo: Sioux, Apache, fought. Cherokee were one of the five "civilized" tribes that tired to assimilate to verying degrees of rape
asciilifeform: 0, afaik, relation, caucasian lang group is more or less isolate.
mircea_popescu: i have nfi

asciilifeform: meanwhile, in risc-v nonsense circus, https://archive.li/i14bp
asciilifeform: while in other 'open sores' idiocy, https://archive.li/GXp09 >> 'With not being able to deliver a 100% fully free software / libre system, the Librem 5 smartphone will rely upon a secondary processor for dealing with the necessary binary blobs for hardware initialization to keep them out of touch from the U-Boot boot-loader and Linux kernel' << pushed as ~feature~ , didjaknow.
asciilifeform: at least google fwiw didn't try to advertise cr50, similar 'feature'.
asciilifeform: and, from same fishwrap , 'Intel CEO Brian Krzanich has resigned effective immediately. Krzanich is stepping down due to a past consensual relationship with an Intel employee and the company's internal investigation has confirmed a violation of their company non-fraternization policies. '
mod6: It's clearly stated on the Washington monument: ``Im reich ist vergnugen verboten!''
mod6: duh
mircea_popescu: is that german for no nookie ?
mod6: mas o menos
mod6: 'pleasure'
mod6: I follow the republic log, down through all the sarc; listening to the lords exchaaange.
mod6: A Ft. Meade summer night, pantsuits passing by; listening to the taps of stingrayyyyyy.
mod6: *whistling*
mod6: ben_vulpes: you wanna go to def^H^H^Hfedcon and set up a pizarro booth?
mircea_popescu: mod6 isn;t las vegas actually closer to you ?
mircea_popescu: or did they move it meanwhile
mircea_popescu: in any case, speaking of non-fraternization, https://78.media.tumblr.com/c630a84304b5ce12d39e269d62bbbbe4/tumblr_oj9n2fJsZS1uzyugro1_1280.jpg
asciilifeform: mm quality
asciilifeform: mod6: a few yrs ago asciilifeform went ( or rather, was sent ) to a smaller/sadder version of said item, 'shmoocon', you wouldn't believe the sort of snake oil that was sold there
asciilifeform: and the sheer redditude of the attendees
asciilifeform never been to the orig vegas 'fedcon' tho
asciilifeform: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-06-28#1830546 << lol missed this, but nao i'm curious, mircea_popescu , how come the 'wolf men' duncount as islamic ?☝︎
a111: Logged on 2018-06-28 15:22 mircea_popescu: eh, they're islamic in the sense the us is catholic.
asciilifeform: afaik they kept all the good parts.
mod6: <+mircea_popescu> mod6 isn;t las vegas actually closer to you ? << naw, but doesn't matter. im sure that they wouldn't let us set up a booth anyway.
mod6: anyway, was just a thought to getting the pizarro name out there a bit.
mod6: bbl
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform for the precise reason stated, marginal weirdo cultish folk. why's ukrainian not count as russian ? at least the ukrs have the claim on ~inventing~ it.
mircea_popescu: mod6 why not ? pretty sure all it takes is money. the sure sign of booth not doing anything.
asciilifeform: http://archive.is/SvFJ2 << tidbit of lulz , via #p
asciilifeform: 'Today 28 June at approximately 20:20 UTC unknown individuals have gained control of the Github Gentoo organization, and modified the content of repositories...' etc

a111: Logged on 2018-06-28 15:22 mircea_popescu: eh, they're islamic in the sense the us is catholic.
BingoBoingo: The sleeping surface did indeed arrive.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: amusingly enuff , even the troo diehard ukrs are entirely ru-speaking folx, at least when camera aint rolling. and , extra lulzily, ditto the chechens ( witness, their 'all things ru suxxx!' 'official' www linked earlier -- 100% in ru )
mod6: mircea_popescu: well, after thinking about it a bit, I don't remember seen "booths" like I was thinking of there. was at least 15 years ago though.
mod6: maybe it's different now. i'll see what I can find out.
