asciilifeform: meanwhile, in heathendom lulz, https://archive.is/43EIJ >> 'Amid mounting public pressure to address Jones' hate speech, Apple's Tim Cook and Eddy Cue met over the weekend and decided to pull five of Jones' podcasts from their platform'... << 'по просьбе трудящихся'(tm)(r) ! ☟︎
asciilifeform: 'Hours after Apple announced its move, Mark Zuckerberg and his team at Facebook made the decision to pull four of Jones' pages' etc.
phf: oh this is beautiful, the new "registered only" restriction on channels means that unless your bouncer auto identifies, you get kicked off the channel ☟︎
phf: ave1: i've updated zfp with regrind and the latest zfp_3_platform
asciilifeform: in other recent lulz, somebody submitted a http://phuctor.nosuchlabs.com/gpgkey/2FF2BB54467E196A58785C82FC6B74E789ACA48679FF310D31DDFDCD0C934C7C . the item in the username corresponds to http://phuctor.nosuchlabs.com/gpgkey/03C39D10AC31A5845BE14895E18743165B7BA74E71D3D4A0D62710232203DAC3 . but the N of the former does not divide the M of the latter ( dunno whether the submitter thought that it does ? or what specifically he was tryin
asciilifeform: g to accomplish. )
asciilifeform: my best guess is that somebody was testing a (buggy) submitter.
asciilifeform: phf: mircea_popescu specificially switched on +r to cut down on spamola, see http://btcbase.org/log/2018-08-04#1839441 thrd ☝︎
a111: Logged on 2018-08-04 20:51 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu sets mode +r #trilema << RIP from_xxxx users...
asciilifeform: ( so far -- worked )
asciilifeform: interestingly, #asciilifeform still spam-free despite no +r , evidently the spam folx are using a hardcoded list of chans that dun include it yet
asciilifeform: phf: what were the inputs for the regrind ? seems like i missed something on ave1's www
phf: asciilifeform: i saw it, i'm pointing out that this addition breaks things. you have to make sure that every single client plays along with freenode's defective ident system, otherwise you get breaks in logs, etc. e.g. phf bouncer is used as a fallback for logs, to ensure continuity, where the fact that the bouncer would come back naively (i.e. without trying to negotiate with nickserv) was a feature ☟︎
asciilifeform: phf: i dun get it, my bouncer worx ( i.e. the user fleanode sees, is registered )
phf: asciilifeform: you bouncer autoidentifies with fleanode then
asciilifeform: aha
phf: but that doesn't always work (for fundamental reasons of non-synchronized protocol), so i have it entirely disabled on mine. i'll add it back, but there's going to be an event X sometime in the feature, where both bot and bouncer failed to come back, resulting in log break. with previous configuration that was less likely
asciilifeform: prolly the Right Thing would be to have the actual logtrons ( phf's, ben_vulpes's , Framedragger's if he were still alive , etc ) sync to one another as fallback ☟︎
asciilifeform: i suspect that fleanode will only get moar broken as time marches on, never less.
phf: nah, makes no difference in this particular situation. you want your thing to come back by any means necessary to continue witnessing. as of now "coming back" is a much more complicated process
asciilifeform: how does it make no diff ? if the logtrons were synced, then if even 1 is alive, the continuity is maintained
phf: asciilifeform: for the scenario i'm describing it makes no difference
phf: yes, for the general reliability it's an improvement.
phf: in the simplest case joining a channel is a send-only process. can theoretically fully ignore what the server is saying and still get a successful join. not so when you have to negotiate with nickserv (at the very least need to time it right, so that you send you privmsg after the connection has been established, which is almost entirely "organic" process)
phf: so +r drops the reliability of all logtrons ☟︎
asciilifeform: phf: have you found that actual gap already happened somewhere ? ( if it did -- i missed )
phf: yes.
asciilifeform: plox to note where, ftr ?
asciilifeform: ( i.e. can point to material in e.g. ben_vulpes's logtron, that is currently missing from phf 's ?? )
phf: i get it, but i haven't done investigation
asciilifeform: phf: i mean, this is a 'hole in the boat bottom'-level item, so imho oughta show if you find.
phf: well, i've seen lines missing during netsplits, which i suppose is not this critical. i suspect ben_vulpes's logbot doesn't have a fallback mechanism, so when it drops there's the reconnect window, which i suspect i could find one or two with missing one or two lines. ben_vulpes will have to speak for himself though.
asciilifeform: would be handy if the 2 logtrons could at least output raw data that one could diff in cmdline
asciilifeform: ( not even speaking of writable sync )
asciilifeform: then could answer this q mechanically, in about 20 sec
phf: btcbase already does that, internally. i've offered people in the past a feed (since i don't want that service to be abused), but i don't think anyone expressed interest
asciilifeform: a url that one can GET and puts out e.g. last 500kB of raw log, isn't so much moar abusable than the ordinary formatted feed imho
phf: asciilifeform: that's an idle request
asciilifeform: how's that
phf: to close upstack before it gets lost, you need http://ave1.org/2018/gnat-zero-foot-print-take-4-introduction-of-the-platform/ and http://ave1.org/2018/gnat-zero-foot-print-take-3-regrind/ the later is a full regrind (which i also didn't notice until btcbase failed to link 4 to rest)
asciilifeform: phf: http://ave1.org/2018/gnat-zero-foot-print-take-3-regrind/ is the one i missed, ty

a111: Logged on 2016-04-11 09:50 mircea_popescu: incidentally phf is there a log bundle for download somewhere ?
phf:
asciilifeform: oh neato
asciilifeform: nao lessee if ben_vulpes has one. then can diff.
phf: this follows ye old kako format, in fact the pre-trilema files are kako's
asciilifeform: i expect there'll be spots where a thing is 1 or 2 places out of order ( fleanode does not reliably preserve same-millisecond ordering iirc ) but aside from that oughta be diffable afaik
phf: ...
phf: there's no timestamp information in irc protocol. the time is whenever the client received it
asciilifeform: right, would have to subtract those prior to diff.
phf: also kako's format includes a unique id as the first field, obviously will also need to be removed
asciilifeform: aha
asciilifeform: unless i'm thick, after subtracting those 2 fields, can diff.
phf: we've had this conversation long time ago, that irc loging is a purely gossip-like thing. at best you can say that "a111 received this message at such and such time, was claimed to be from X" ☟︎
asciilifeform: right
asciilifeform: theoretically errybody oughta have seen the same lines tho (even if not always in exact order)
phf: unless there's netsplit
asciilifeform: aha
asciilifeform: i do not recall what ben_vulpes does re netsplits
phf: and things become tricky when bot gets kicked off for whatever reason
phf: i mean to do reliable logging you need to track the whois "on server", and spawn 2 bots per server, which then all negotiate a single consensus message to promote to canonical "this is what was said" ☟︎
asciilifeform: would prolly also need logic to force the 2 to connect via different fleanode boxen etc
phf: i'm pretty sure we had pocket conversations during netsplits, that none of the bots heard ☟︎☟︎
asciilifeform: i'm quite convinced that this happened, and that it explains various cases of 'we DID this but wtf it aint in the logs'
phf: asciilifeform: you missed what i said. whois tells you which server user connects through. to prevent a netsplit scenario, you have to connect to every one of those boxes with at least one bot, but better yet n+1
asciilifeform: aaa
asciilifeform: ok i get.
phf: asciilifeform is/was on server karatkievich.freenode.net (Montreal, CA), phf is/was on server card.freenode.net (Washington, DC, US) etc.
asciilifeform: iirc mine is still set to rotate through a couple
asciilifeform: but yes
asciilifeform: ( my fiber here bumps 1ce or 2ce / yr, so in practice there's very little rotation on my end )
phf: i mean, your bots gotta exist in a distributed pool, each does a whois on join, negotiates a spawn of a new bot if there's an untracked connection. of course this is an unreasonable amount of engineering for a logbot
asciilifeform: phf: approx similar to the sweat reqd to build own fleanode, aha
phf: own freenode comes with a neat feature of logger on relay
phf: and you start getting freenode/gossip overlaps, e.g. each l1 could run own fleanode, connect server-to-server, etc.
trinque figures there's some phrase in russian that means roughly "complexity accumulated in bureau A because not permitted/unwilling to change how bureau B works"
asciilifeform: my understanding was that mircea_popescu refrained from giving signal 'build us a fleanode' in the past on acct of (but not limited to) the reason where heathens (e.g. fetgurlz) would have difficulty visiting . but we already have the +r hoop for them to jump, i dun see how much worse would be own fleanode. ☟︎
asciilifeform: trinque: that's more or less ~all~ software complexities.
trinque: sure is.
asciilifeform: iron, too.
asciilifeform: 'these here 15,000 transistors are because we gotta talk to pci bus' etc
asciilifeform: yer comp consists ~99++% by weight of this bureaucracy.
asciilifeform: this is sorta why e.g. FUCKGOATS runs on 40 milliwatt ( of which 95% are lost as heat in the 10x-margined analogue pwr filtration in the daughterboards) whereas pc burns 100watt if were doing same work, etc
phf: trinque: nothing comes to mind, though i'm sure there's gotta be something in 70s su phrase book. we gotta ask rotakus though, that seems more of their thing (plus they would've had much better luck saying stuff like that, might've been too close to home in SU)

mircea_popescu has wiped the windows10 off a hp "envy". jesus fuck, anyone had ANY FUCKING IDEA just how many times you gotta reboot and bless the box to get through the lock microshit put on the boot process ?!
mircea_popescu: there's like three intermediate states, progress by degrees.
asciilifeform: oh hah the 'secure boot' lulz
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: at least you found box where it ~has~ the off switch
asciilifeform: increasingly they dun have one at all
mircea_popescu: i didn't search, just what happened ot pick up.
mircea_popescu: i was about to take screwdrivers to it tbh.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform but as far as it was concerned, i suspect it also "didn't have" the switch. you should see wtf windows has morphed into, jesus christ.
mircea_popescu: do you realise it literally spams you with advertisements during usage ?
mircea_popescu: "hey, it seems like you're copying a lot of files, would you like to buy this or that ?"
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: the new biosen are lulzy also, often they have tcp stack nao, and read file system , and even show spam in the setup
mircea_popescu: EXACTLY like shitty cellphone service, "hey, you just placed a call, we'll send spam sms 10 minutes later, so you think it's the op and look"
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform anyway, the "setup" page consisted of, i kid you not, 20 word "descriptions" of the various items and links to "read more" ie ON THE FUCKING WEB. no knobs.
mircea_popescu: it was an eye widening experience for yours, truly.
asciilifeform: re screwdriver, typically with newer shitboxen there is nothing even to do inside, only win from taking it apart is to help fit into rubbish bin
mircea_popescu: but anyway, let the record reflect i did do it. and THEN had to conjure up wireless driver, because holy shit it comes with an unknown pos atop the realtek.
asciilifeform: ( e.g. in the sad saga of http://www.loper-os.org/?p=2433 )
mircea_popescu: first time ever i had to compile wireless drivers.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: at this point this is a decade-long pestilence, even asciilifeform's x60 (circa 2009, iirc) terraforming recipe includes patching bios to permit hand-installed nic to work , followed by installation of same

mircea_popescu: ^
mircea_popescu: precisely. wtf is that ?!
asciilifeform: they tend to include intel's , for which to this day no driver
mircea_popescu: item has intel sound, haven't bothered with.
asciilifeform: why even sound on a lappy, lol
asciilifeform: but intel's soundcard is unremarkable iirc and worx even in 2.4 kernel

mircea_popescu: i dunno, to watch ashley lane walk around town ?
asciilifeform: i guess i have simple tastes , dun particularly need to hear the cuntlips schlick
mircea_popescu: item is actually very pleasant, from a purely visual perspective. stupid-ish kbd, but large and light. fits perfectly on ass of girl holding her ankless so you can hurt her asshole while you lovingly kiss another.
mircea_popescu: assemblage can be drastically improved by placing laptop atop her ass, playing publicdisgrace.com. bring the light of the great urban outdoors in the dank of the cellar.
asciilifeform: this isn't same box as had the sad backlight is it
mircea_popescu: nah.
asciilifeform: ( iirc that one was also a fiorina creation )
mircea_popescu: recent item, made last year or such.
BingoBoingo: Ah, a long tale of the new recruit's lappy
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo it will please you to know your name having been mentioned in passing in aside conversation, it proved remarkably enough to now denote the evil of internet boys among the new recruits.
mircea_popescu: THEYRE GONNA FUCKING SHOW YOU!
BingoBoingo: Lol
diana_coman: ahahah, kid peeked in and red "bongo!"
diana_coman: so yes, it catches the eye
mircea_popescu: ikr ?
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo who do you think you are, anyways!
diana_coman: re laptop, I can say I carry around one that still has the windowssomething label, what of it
mircea_popescu: diana_coman what do you mean label ?
diana_coman: some sticker?
asciilifeform: the little sticker ?
asciilifeform: i like to put'em on public toilets
diana_coman: asciilifeform, yes!
mircea_popescu: sooo... ? what about it ? lol
diana_coman: eh, it is a sort of public toilet
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform anyway, re tastes, you've not seen any of this "interview" bs. it's fucking comedy central, watching solo/girl-girl models talk to each other.
diana_coman: mircea_popescu, it has otherwise gentoo, no problem
diana_coman: no windows boot or whatevers
mircea_popescu: diana_coman did it also have the "uefi" bs ?
asciilifeform: afaik x60 was the ~last lappy without uefiism
diana_coman: mircea_popescu, I think it did but by now I don't even remember for sure re this particular one
asciilifeform: ( ftr, in addition to the many other 'wonders', uefi-infected bios will search erry disk for ms-signed turds and execute'em on boot, erry single time )
mircea_popescu: well this is the core of my point! holy shit you sheltered existences, you have nfi what it's even like, out there!
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i know, had to format. let it read ext4, wut.
diana_coman: and at any rate gentoo is only last linux installed, being as it is a public toilet iron of sorts, it got at different points in its life everything on
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: dun fughet to nuke the 'ata hidden partitions' nonsense
BingoBoingo: AH, that's why it still has the sticker
asciilifeform: ( typically needs magic code sent via the sata )
mircea_popescu: ima have to check that.
asciilifeform: hdparm -N /dev/sdx
