asciilifeform: in other archaeological holyfuqs, the wolfmen have ~ergative case~. like basque and chukcha.
asciilifeform: ( i.e. can compactly inflect $verb into 'to force [subj] to $verb' )
asciilifeform: another score for 'sapir-mircea_popescu' , seems like.
mircea_popescu: aha
asciilifeform: 'enslavative case', thought asciilifeform when he saw this

asciilifeform: in other noose, several 100k 'laughable primes' ( i.e. close to powers of 2, powers of 2 with various value of upper byte, etc ) being generated and added to phuctor 8ball db as we speak ( item discussed in late may, but stuck on conveyor )
asciilifeform: making it happen required buncha painful db tuning, which is nao complete.
BingoBoingo: In other news so far this city of concrete appears to be standing after Uruguay qualified for the quarter finals.
mircea_popescu: i vasn
mircea_popescu: i can't believe germany got sent packing
mircea_popescu: total scam sport, srsly, last phase champs fail to qualify ?
BingoBoingo: Seriously
BingoBoingo: It explains so much about the Uruguayos and the Argentines though. They broke their cultures to succeed in scamsport.
mircea_popescu: heh
mircea_popescu: teh ticos are SO FUCKING PROUD they scored a coupla times...
mircea_popescu: tbh i didn't think they possibly could.
BingoBoingo: The flopping, the timewasting... these are ADVANTAGES in scamsport!
BingoBoingo: Still haven't figured out night photography worth a damn, but the atmosphere here over not getting eliminated was roughly Normal US City wins a league champsionship or College town beats opponent it should not have (Mizzou-Oklahoma 2010) level celebration.
BingoBoingo: On the other hand, my practiced experience knowing how and when to appropriately yell at the tv during sportsballs has helped to build rapport with the locals.
mircea_popescu: lol
mircea_popescu: i bet
deedbot: http://trilema.com/2018/the-unaided-rape-position/ << Trilema - The unaided rape position
BingoBoingo: And Russia appears to be taking Spain into overtime
Mocky: grayed out o in count, mircea_popescu, nice touch
asciilifeform: !!up kawaiiwhore
deedbot: kawaiiwhore voiced for 30 minutes.
kawaiiwhore: Hello
asciilifeform: kawaiiwhore: あなたは誰ですか ?
asciilifeform: eh.
mircea_popescu: Mocky ikr
asciilifeform: preliminary results : http://p.bvulpes.com/pastes/INfHc/?raw=true >> shits out 15360 sadprimez; somewhat surprisingly, 0 pops from these.
asciilifeform: http://p.bvulpes.com/pastes/vkI5t/?raw=true << the next phase, of that experiment, but this one will take a while.
mircea_popescu: interesting. i was expecting some pops tbh.
asciilifeform: metoo
mircea_popescu: then again, apparently pops are disappopping.
mircea_popescu: see that diana_coman ?
asciilifeform: lolwat
mircea_popescu: pops, dood. it's a thing.
asciilifeform: ..in eulora?
mircea_popescu: errywhere!
mircea_popescu: but yes, eulora has a top of pops.
mircea_popescu: meanwhile in other lulz, http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/nationworld/ct-venezuela-mike-pence-20180628-story,amp.html
asciilifeform: 'Trump said he would not rule out a "military option" to deal with Venezuela' << lol!
mircea_popescu: if they have any sense they're buying chinese rockets.
asciilifeform: if they can even still afford chinese rice.
mircea_popescu: will be so fucking hysterical if the 1st us carrier sunk is sunk by venezuela...
mircea_popescu: you kidding ? venezuela is like tmsr-rich.
asciilifeform: hm
mircea_popescu: they're just not giving it to the precious cuntlets, is all.
asciilifeform: i thought its riches were denominated in petro with nobody to pump
asciilifeform: if they were smart, would export the cuntlets, sell to chechens etc
mircea_popescu: word. if i were maduro there'd be co-ed open outcry. but... they're new, and besides orcs, whadda ya want.
mircea_popescu: anyway, not so many are needed to pump, and certainly not of the pantsuit class. mostly afaik russians do it.
asciilifeform: last i knew, ru, cn , contractors, aha
mircea_popescu: venezuela's problem is that shitty oil, kinda ~same as fracking by products. but still worth some money.
asciilifeform: similar to usa's.
mircea_popescu: a cut worse.
asciilifeform not expert in subj, knows it mostly via BingoBoingo's retelling
mircea_popescu: anyway, maduro can afford rocketry installation. question is whether he has the sense to, or more of the same "not harvesting the teen cunt for sale because reasons" nonsense.
diana_coman: lol mircea_popescu we'll end up linking phuctor to eulora and have "had his key phucked. Congratulations!"
mircea_popescu: lmao
mircea_popescu: special top, of the eye pop.
diana_coman: quite
phf: !!key asciilifeform
deedbot: http://wot.deedbot.org/17215D118B7239507FAFED98B98228A001ABFFC7.asc
asciilifeform: lol phf it hasn't changed
phf: i'm not nearby my keys
phf: besides, eternal vigilance!!1
asciilifeform: lolk
asciilifeform: 'not near keys' lol. perhaps today's the day phf ends up eating a faux key via his isp's brand-new www diddletron.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform if it's so, it's now logged.
asciilifeform: aha
mircea_popescu: in other alf-interest lulz, http://www.techzoom.net/BugBounty
asciilifeform: lol!!
phf: asciilifeform: in "clean gentoo for rockchip" is there particular reason why boot sd card's gpt partition has a 8320 sector break between l1 and l2?
asciilifeform: phf: iirc alignment
asciilifeform: phf: copied the layout blindly from vendor's example shitlinux
phf: aah, kk
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: funnily enuff, google et al already 'offer' 150k and moar of 'really, we promise' printolade.
asciilifeform: does'em the expected amt of good.
asciilifeform: ( said 'offer', naturally, consists of 'give it to us and maybe we'll think about paying, lol, sucker' )
mircea_popescu: the funny part is that the guy has a very high falooting "oh, cost of doing nothing" bla bla
mircea_popescu: he's gonna pay me in ~dollars~ for ~knowledge~ ? why not pay me in maple leaves for airplane.
asciilifeform: 'pay'
mircea_popescu: quite.
asciilifeform: afaik ~no actual dollars 'harmed in the making of this film'(tm)(r)

a111: Logged on 2015-05-30 17:32 asciilifeform: hell, i'm personally sitting on a stash of 0days that i can't do anything practical with.
a111: Logged on 2015-06-14 16:31 asciilifeform: i must point out that i have sat on both sides of this (entirely absent) bench. both in search of secrets, ~and~ sitting on a small stash of 0days that will be buried with me
a111: Logged on 2017-12-24 21:38 asciilifeform: also why wouldja 1) help hitler 2) for $ 500 3) that you'd have to suffer from down's syndrome to actually believe will be paid ...?
mircea_popescu: part of the reason for 3) is that ~you don't actually accept fiat in payment~. whether you're aware of this or not. but if you did... take douchebag who does, "works well for him".
asciilifeform: entirely aware
diana_coman: asciilifeform, believe it or not but I have former university colleagues who work for google "because it pays well"; and I'm not at all surprised: while at uni they similarly went to microsoft's local "lab" licking whatever was available to lick; essentially I'd have been surprised if they did NOT work for google /microsoft /similar
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: entirely aware. even if google et al paid as promised ( something i'll believe when i see it with own eyes ) why the fuck would i want to trade a genuinely valuable find for taxolade.
mircea_popescu: taxolade being part of the problem. but rather, it's company scrip, "Can use at company store".
mircea_popescu: "what if your company store doesn't have anything i wish to buy ?"
asciilifeform: i work in the saeculum for the local dubloons, just enuff to pay the bills and keep the experimental budget topped up, like naggum et al. dun mean i particularly care to sell body for it off hours.
asciilifeform: !!up douchebag
deedbot: douchebag voiced for 30 minutes.
douchebag: I'd like to note that hackerone pays out in bitcoin, however it goes through coinbase...take that for what you will.
asciilifeform: i.e. they pay ( promise to pay.. ? ) in lolcoin
asciilifeform: ( complete with kycism etc )
asciilifeform: i've nfi what one gotta have in place of brains, in crankcase, to fall for this nonsense.
phf: asciilifeform: it's a casino model, you sit down, play a few rounds, "win" a thousand dollars or so, lose some, win some more, all within a few thousand dollar range. on average you come out in the negative, but it's fun while it's happening.
asciilifeform: !#s feel like a trader
a111: 3 results for "feel like a trader", http://btcbase.org/log-search?q=feel%20like%20a%20trader
asciilifeform: ^ tlp. see also.
BingoBoingo: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-07-01#1831056 << This is very credible. From mango weather to beaches to the largest proven reserves of oil, Vzla has the recursos naturales Argentina could only dream of.☝︎
a111: Logged on 2018-07-01 18:37 mircea_popescu: you kidding ? venezuela is like tmsr-rich.
mircea_popescu: argentina has recursos humanos.
mircea_popescu: anyway. most of south america is "great place, sadly inhabited" unlike argentina etc, venezuela started to do soemthing about it.
BingoBoingo: I thought Argentina claimed both
mircea_popescu: possibru
BingoBoingo: But yes very inhabited down here
lobbes: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-06-23#1829073 << In other news, I can now say that I definitively have an answer as to the issue (and, finally, a solution)☝︎
a111: Logged on 2018-06-23 12:46 asciilifeform: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-06-23#1829051 << lobbes didja determine what proggy (e.g. apache?) it was that actually fell down ?

mircea_popescu: nice!
lobbes: phew, talk about a learning experience
BingoBoingo: Anyways, new Chinese/Russian missiles in Venezuala would not be a surprise
mircea_popescu: lobbes nice work!
BingoBoingo: Anyways, part of Venezuala's schtick historically is that they have been blockaded by Europeans before over debt defaults. They have to have seen Argentina's clusterfuck with euro missiles over the falklands. Every reason for them to buy from the Chicoms and Ruskies.
BingoBoingo: lobbes: props on the mod_evasive
lobbes: ty all!
lobbes: the real key was the "mod_limitipconn" a bit further down
mircea_popescu: (in case anyone's wondering WHY such a thing would even occur : it's because http://trilema.com/2017/remember-the-security-hole-automattic-refused-to-fix-back-in-2014/ ; and because the expectation that this works is ~so strong~ among the internet-moron-exploiters, they don't even bother to check that indeed mp-wp doesn't permit it. so they'll try and try and try to "ddos" this way.)
lobbes: incidentally, trinque, next time you're in the boiler room plox to try adding http://blog.lobbesblog.com/feed/ once more

asciilifeform: lobbes: iptables will work if you build the kernel ( there is a tarball with patched kernel on all pizarro rockchip boxen ) with the requisite flags
asciilifeform: prolly i oughta make this standard
mircea_popescu: ytes.
asciilifeform: ( the pilot plant kernel was built, believe or not, in hotel, right there on the coffee table, definitely needs some refinement )
asciilifeform: 'With a capacity of 24 GWh, this new battery factory should enable them to significantly increase production with a total battery production capacity of 60 GWh' << lulzy, sorta like measuring output of condom factory in liters

asciilifeform: oh hey
phf: asciilifeform: hey, when booting your rockchip fileset on asus did you get a screen output or just console/cable?
asciilifeform: phf: console, via snake
asciilifeform: screen too
asciilifeform: however i used the evil kernel, haven't yet built a kernel for c101pa
asciilifeform: ( not google's, but shitlinux, iirc 'arch' )
