jurov: mod6: invoicing me directly for foundation expenses is fine
mircea_popescu: !Qlater tell lobbes yet i noticed you've not provided an eta.
lobbesbot: mircea_popescu: The operation succeeded.
mircea_popescu: absence is meaningful, you understand, and what that absence means here is "not worth the mention", which in turn translates to "may default to any reasonable value of your choosing" which in this case means to me "definite;y done by saturday". because that's what i want it to be.
mircea_popescu: so saturday we'll be having the same discussion in the same terms, "why have you [implicitly] promised something you didn't deliver", which is just not a good way to go about things.
mircea_popescu: consider that the "top of hopper" item ALSO means, and what it means in this context is "i've not done anything for two weeks seeing how i've not yet touched my top of hopper" "but mp... i got distracted..." "then WHY do you even have a top of hopper concept, if distraction's the law of the land ?"
mircea_popescu: because unlike the empire, where they speak to feel good, like birds chirping, the republic has the log and the mechanism of inference, one can very effectually land self in soup. all it takes is apply the "i want everyone to be happy" imperial process for a few passes, until you've loaded yourself into such a ball of inference no one can possibly managed.
mircea_popescu: so don't do that. instead, see diana_coman 's theoretical work on managing this (ie http://www.dianacoman.com/2018/02/06/its-only-words-and-assumptions-and-priorities-and-ouch/ ) and take for instance Mocky 's very effectual style ( http://logs.minigame.biz/2018-07-22.log.html#t13:56:10 / http://logs.minigame.biz/2018-07-25.log.html#t19:48:59 etc ). doodn's managed 27 builds of a mining bot NONE OF WHICH WORK to date and i'm

trinque: I'm not going to eat 1300 of spread here
mod6: Everyone is being invoiced this way.
mod6: This is how ben_vulpes has been doing it, by using the price point set from the btc/fiat sale
trinque: how convenient for you, to choose when to do that sale... ?
mod6: It was done early in the month, when the price was what it was. If you had be properly invoiced at that time, what then?
mod6: (these invoices are coming in way late -- should have been done as soon as the price point was set)

deedbot: jurov paid mod6 invoice 2
mod6: i know it sounds ideal to say, for instance, "auction closes on 10th of month", "invoices will start going out on the 11th". However, there is no way to know if the auction will be completed. At this time, it's a very touch-and-go thing.
mod6: jurov: Thanks!
mircea_popescu: trinque the concept is sound, "i'm not eating random spreads", but in practice, a) do you specifically want to repurchase what you spend in short time or at optimuim price ? ie, "you bought all you were going to buy at 6k, what do you care".
mircea_popescu: i do the same thing btw, repurchase spends.
trinque: want these goofs to schedule the invoices.
mircea_popescu: that for sure.
mircea_popescu: wasn't discussing the instant thing, but the broader problem of wtf we do.
mircea_popescu: ie, your complaint has broader teeth i suspect.
ben_vulpes: mod6: if invoice day is the 15th on a month, figure you can close the auction before then?
mod6: there is no way to tell.
trinque: yeah, really matters which way the market is moving, whether I want to stock up first, or replenish after
trinque: mod6: what auction doesn't have an end date?
mircea_popescu: anyway, part of the problem is that the saw teeth are a little overlarge, basically. too few auctions.
mircea_popescu: trinque he doesn't know when lobbes has the auction ready lol.
mod6: it's not only that, it's just trying to get the whole thing organized and sent down there. This month, I had it all done by the 10th. With plently of time to spare to get invoices out by the 15th.
mircea_popescu: actually, let's suppose i found a solution here :
mod6: But who is to say that I don't get hit by a bus on AUgust 4th, and then it's not complete in time.
trinque: can still make a commitment and after that we're still people who communicate

mod6: The fact is, until we have a steady stream of usd coming in, I hesitate to put a date on it -- can only say at this time, "will do best to have them out as soon as we can after the auction". It's my fault that I didn't start invoicing right away. I mearly did not, because I thought that these were sent at the end of the month.
mircea_popescu: the above wFF denotes wired filthy fiats ; winner gets the chunk wired to details of his specification at that point.
trinque: !Qhelp
lobbesbot: trinque: http://lobbesblog.com/lobbesbotcommands
mircea_popescu: there is some wiggle room in the sense that banks are unreliable and so if it does come out it's impossible to wire as intended, the trade just unwinds.
mircea_popescu: delivery within ~2weeks from date of closing, because wtf can you do.
trinque: yeah, my first invoice was based on the WU I sent
trinque: mod6: I understand there are challenges; I'm also trying to be a model customer for you, and while I generally trust you to do sensible things, $invoiceDate = rand() isn't be great for your business either.
trinque: there are a finite amount of "the interface slipped thousands of funnybux between auction and invoice" that I will eat, and I will proably eat more of them than other customers that don't know you as well
trinque: fair or not, it's a problem you have
trinque: another thing to consider is whether you're encouraging people to pay for 12mos of service upfront. it buys you runway, puts some extra cash in your hand for adspend or w/e serves bringing on more customers. right now I'm compelled to wait another month at month to month to see what the spread is next month, and you have a bit less cash to wield.
