mircea_popescu: i expect, yes. 99% of the function is basically an irc proxy ; i expect 99% of the code is other dumb shit
asciilifeform: aha, proxy/reconnector + buncha ???? ( www configurator, fuckknowswhatelse )
mod6: Ok, so this whole pricing thing with Pizarro. (Thread begins here: http://logs.bvulpes.com/pizarro?d=2018-8-31#419975). We've been discussing this for a few days now. And anyone who has month-to-month service has been made correct in their pricing for August, as well as anyone who has established new "Shared Hosting" in August (nicoleci).
mircea_popescu: evidently a lot of republicans, and even a bunch of lords use, so it'd be entirely not wasted effort if someone wants to flatten the ircbot into this role.
mircea_popescu: especiallty considering most people who run a bot also want a znc -- if most people who want a znc get a free bot in the process it won't hurt anything.
asciilifeform: i set up a znc box in '16, has been working since ~continuously ( moved 1ce, disk burned out 1nce )
asciilifeform: you give it a user, /sbin/nologin, put the thing itself in cron @reboot , that's it
mod6: There are five (I previously thought there were four) accounts that have longer dated contracts, people who have signed up for a full year, or multiple months. We want to compensate those accounts for a mis-pricing posted since May 29th. The idea was to credit them 0.001 BTC/mo for June, July, and August.
mod6: Initially, I thought this was the right approach. But also could see that maybe, this wasn't square enough for longer dated contracts. However, this sets a bad precedent of reprincing active contracts if pricing or circumstances change.
mod6: mircea_popescu, for instance is paying for one of these for Mocky.
mod6: This one was setup on May 3rd, and goes through the end of 2018.
mircea_popescu: mod6 i really wouldn't bother ; prices can fluctuate, it's the nature of the beast, what are youi going to do, liquify all contracts and keep track of back and forth movements ? it's insanity.
mircea_popescu: the only thing it does is make accounting overexpensive.
mod6: I agree, it makes everything a nightmare really.
mircea_popescu: people sign up for what they sign up for ; if that changes it's one thing to give them the more favourable price going forward ; but you can't do this retroactive thing ?
mod6: I can see that too, Sir. I just wanna make sure we're doing the Right Thing (tm).
mircea_popescu: you seriously can't be sitting there spending hours on this pennies thing. ☟︎
trinque: if you're trying to guard reputation, all you need to do is communicate clearly about the mechanism, and be done with it.
trinque: and then yeah, go get some ads up or something much more important
mod6: trinque: Thank you, fair enough.
mircea_popescu: it seriously can not be worth your time, this. i mean we're talking 0.001 or something ? 'cmon.
mod6: Fair point, I just didn't want to judge if how much someones money is worth to them outright.
mod6: Without some considedration, anyway.
trinque: speaking for myself, I'm gonna be way crankier if I've got 0.3BTC of hardware down there that's suddenly homeless
trinque: than over w/e beer money on the shared hosting ☟︎
mircea_popescu: for one thing.
mircea_popescu: for the other fucking thing -- suppose the price went the OTHER way. what, you're gonna hit everyone with pesky small extra bills ?
mod6: True enough.
mircea_popescu: people who don't want long term contracts, ie don't want the fx risk, don't get long term contracts. it's that simple really.
mod6: *nod* agreed,
mod6: s/,/./
mod6: Well with that, I'm glad I brought this up in here. The guidence is going to be: Pizarro won't do anything at this time for existing contracts. Upon renewal, you'll pay the posted price.
mircea_popescu: as i'm 100% certain i'd have rejected a bill with the heading "see mp, it's more expensive nao than when we shook hands", i'm correspondingly 100% certain i don't care what happened. cuz that's why i'd have rejected it, "i don't care what happened".
mod6: Right.
mod6: I think I just needed some setting straight. I appreciate that.
mircea_popescu: dun mention it.
mod6: o7
diana_coman: mod6, as pizarro customer on a year-long contract I can confirm I do *not want* anything to be done; one upside of going longterm is precisely that it's set for some time and it doesn't require any additional ongoing attention essentially
mod6: Hi diana_coman! Thank you for your feedback.
hanbot: hey mod6, all this talk about znc being a crock and so on is a little unnerving. did http://logs.bvulpes.com/pizarro?d=2018-8-30#420622 change in meanwhile? anything you'd like me to do?
mimisbrunnr: Logged on 2018-08-30 00:31 hanbot: q for the management --can i set up znc on UY3?
mod6: Hi, I've always stayed clear of znc, so have never used it myself. Let me take a look at what asciilifeform said above.
mod6: Regardless, we trust you to set it up and manage it -- It may be reasonable to find an alternative if one comes around that's suitble.
mod6: In your blog, you point out that you are using xchat. For me, since I use irssi (this might be helpful to others on the shared-environemt), it could be started up in a screen session, and simply ssh in attach your screen (or tmux?) to irc.
mod6: Or even a rockchip could be a good home for a remote irc boxen.
mod6: asciilifeform is our resident expert on these matters; are we still ok to let users run znc (at least for now)?
mircea_popescu: i suppose putting together a standard ircing recipe can't hurt anything
asciilifeform: mod6: znc (or whatever else) on rk box is between user and his gods
mod6: sure, but what about UY1?
asciilifeform: mod6: if on the shared machine, gotta avoid stepping on one another's feet, say which port you're gonna listen on
asciilifeform: ( say in #p , or here, but so as next user knows what ports in use )
asciilifeform: this is elementaryt
asciilifeform: *elementary
mod6: Aha. hanbot did give us her port number
mod6 digs up log-link
asciilifeform: so then where is problem

asciilifeform: it's a pile of shit, just like emacs, kernel, gcc, all the rest of the sad sack of shit errybody is stuck using.
asciilifeform: set it up once, pour cement, leave it alone.

mircea_popescu: asciilifeform prolly publish your recipe.
asciilifeform: this sounds like a local port
asciilifeform: i.e. cannot connect from outside
asciilifeform: hanbot: this actually worked ?
hanbot: yes, am connected thusly atm.
mircea_popescu: lmao
asciilifeform: neato.
mircea_popescu: i thought ports that high weren't forwarded.
asciilifeform: mod6: cat /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_local_reserved_ports on uy box plox
mod6: Sure
mod6: 0x0a
asciilifeform: i.e. nil
mod6: yup
asciilifeform: apparently not set by default on recent linuxen
mircea_popescu: yeah but upstream ? impressivbe.
asciilifeform: i see no particular reason to care
mircea_popescu: me either. just, not what i remembered.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: traditionally >=32768 aha
mircea_popescu: right. i had no idea they even route.
asciilifeform: 0..65535 routs.
asciilifeform: linux traditionally had a cutoff where 'localhost only'
asciilifeform: above 32k.
asciilifeform: it's convention, is all, the high ports were reserved for the local ends of tcp pipes
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: seems like hanbot already posted working recipe.
asciilifeform just nao read
mircea_popescu: well yeah ; it doesn't include hwatever sbin setting you were discussing though. i guess leave as a comment.

a111: Logged on 2018-08-16 18:18 asciilifeform: in other noose, asciilifeform obtained and testing a LTC3108 , 'energy harvester', they've become cheapo
mircea_popescu: i expect ya
asciilifeform: ( there's several similar chips on the market, afaik that's the cheapest )
mircea_popescu: in field use ; for research, something that records voltages i guess
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: want to record not simply voltage, but just how many milliwatts/hrs available from the harvester ( in field practice you cannot do much of anything with e.g. peltier without harvester )
asciilifeform: how to do : it charges cap ( the demo unit i have here from china, has 4 1F 2.2v caps ) and runs a boost converter from these, as well as lighting up 'power good' pin when 3.3v (from the latter) is available. so you put a test load on the 3.3v out ( say , 1W 100 ohm resistor ) and record events when 'power good' signal changes.
asciilifeform: from this, can calculate practical energy availability.
asciilifeform: from this, in turn, can say, e.g., 'in the daytime, september, such-and-such latitude, can get J joules/sec , then after sundown, J', ... ' etc
asciilifeform: ltc3108 has an intake transformer . the demo board is sold in two variants, one where it has a low:high winding ( for peltiers, solar ) and one where high:low ( for piezos ). the latter is for noise/vibratory harvester -- e.g. tree branch in the wind.
asciilifeform: think of the harvester as an impedance matcher between the physical source of energy, and the consuming device.
mod6: meat,brb
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform this is actually a good approach yeah.
mircea_popescu: just record the light switching.
mircea_popescu: to get fancy can make something like ben_vulpes 's block follower, make it do hourly reports in a chan, review whenever
asciilifeform: wire it up to a (battery-powered) universal remote thing, with the rx end indoors , where you can log.
asciilifeform: from the intervals, can compute energy in.
mircea_popescu: yep.
mircea_popescu: and by reporting it "live" as it were, solve all the data integrity problems etc.
asciilifeform: aha.
mircea_popescu: nice.
asciilifeform: ( don't put logger in the box per se, will miss good % of the flips, as e.g. sd card eats ridiculous current , which the harvester may or may not at a given time be able to supply )
asciilifeform: btw peltier, solar, piezo are not the only possib harvests. there is also inductive coupling from mains cabling ( street lights, etc , user yer imagination )
asciilifeform: *use
mircea_popescu: certainly this counts as qualification for lab physicist. many ways available to introduce systematic errors.
asciilifeform: for inductive coupler, 5-6 turns of insulated copper around $victim will suffice
asciilifeform: ( use the high:low variant )
asciilifeform: think back to the old-school noncontact ac voltmeter, same principle.
mircea_popescu: but yes, judging by how ubiquitous "computer mouse thrown over power lines" are in urban environment (when it's not sneakers, at any rate) might be very practical approach -- put the inductive coil in the mouse cable ; and the transmitter in the body.
asciilifeform: can get tens of watts, this way.
asciilifeform: 24/7.
mircea_popescu: on a high power line, can get a lot yes.
asciilifeform: even on street light line. certainly enuff to run just about anything you might care to fit in the box.
mircea_popescu: http://farm6.staticflickr.com/5470/9290272320_8f198ac9e7_z.jpg
asciilifeform: i'd avoid ^ these , cable with multi-kV insulation aint cheap
asciilifeform: and 'sapper errs once'
asciilifeform: ordinary city lamps will suffice.
mircea_popescu: i suspect those are .5MV
asciilifeform: for these, frying pan wound with magnet wire ~at ground level~, as tuned circuit, is actually enuff
mircea_popescu: yup.
mircea_popescu: that's what i was going to say, you don't have to get THAT close. if air is no longer dielectric you're too close.
mircea_popescu: energy abundantly available well before you get that close.
asciilifeform: just stand in the near field. ( recall the folx with unplugged fluorescent lamps )
mircea_popescu: quite.
mircea_popescu: can prolly even bury stuff along the lines. nobody will ever fucking find.
mircea_popescu: one inch of dirt's worth one mile of otp tape.
asciilifeform: in some places they guard'em, but usually not (picture the cost), typically proprietor figures that monkeying near hv lines is self-punishing
asciilifeform: the spread of copper bandits might change the equation tho.
mircea_popescu: quite.
mircea_popescu: it's not practical to "guard".
asciilifeform: ( i can picture a near future when hv line rights of way are mined, say )
mircea_popescu: if you had people that entreprising...
mircea_popescu: you don't. the cowsies just wanna.
asciilifeform: not mined by usg, lol. by copper hunters..
mircea_popescu: anyway, shall bbl!
asciilifeform: ( but no, at least over here we dun have 'enterprising'. we have repair crews that barely repair )
asciilifeform: laters.
BingoBoingo: And I just got jewed by a chicken
asciilifeform: lolwat
BingoBoingo: So I'm putting together my healthy 4 egg veggie scramble, and one of the eggs didn't have a yolk
asciilifeform: in other lulz, the 'bernstein as nsa stooge' concept slowly percolates from the republic, https://sporaw.livejournal.com/538323.html
