asciilifeform: *** Your GCC is older than 6.0 and is not supported

asciilifeform: ^ apparently this thing will need several 1000 litre honeywagons to fully empty of liquishit.
asciilifeform: as-salaam alaikum, Mocky
asciilifeform: !!up Mocky
deedbot: Mocky voiced for 30 minutes.
Mocky: thx
Mocky: deedbot was answering my !!help but not !!up, eventually came thru 5 minutes later with multiple responses
Mocky: !!down
asciilifeform: Mocky: i've seen this before, sometimes i suspect trinque runs the thing on a 386...
trinque: oh whatever.
trinque: I'm not taking any more responsibility for freenode than any of you.
asciilifeform: trinque: fleanode puts 5min delays in your path ?! ( i'll believe , but haven't yet seen this wonder with own eyes ) ☟︎
trinque: it has been a waste of my time to investigate every instance of this, always ending up with "bot thought it was connected, was not"
mircea_popescu: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-09-03#1847069 << o yeah. at least weekly occurence here. ☝︎

trinque: somebody's going to have to give me logs then, instead of vague complaints
trinque: ahem.. Mocky
mircea_popescu: trinque you want logs of freenode being an unreliable pos ?!
trinque: I thought you were saying deedbot
mircea_popescu: i put in the more egregious ones, such as "timeout 260 seconds" coming BEFORE a message and such nonsense. but really...
mircea_popescu: no, i'm saying freenode adds multi-minute delays at least weekly.
trinque: yeah that's what I've observed as well
trinque: but I'll upgrade to 486DX2 just for alf
Mocky: i don't have any complains, vague or otherwise. just stated what i saw. worked out for me in the end
Mocky: don't forget to hit that turbo button tho
mircea_popescu: it works best if you tweak it.\
PeterL: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-08-30#1845808 << I feel like this is directed at people like me, telling me to get out, but I am not sure? ☝︎
a111: Logged on 2018-08-30 13:22 mircea_popescu: the overarching point being that neither #trilema nor tmsr is a sort of dilbert-larping-zone, here for the http://btcbase.org/log/2018-08-29#1845588 "salaried zek" element to gather after hours, smoke, and predictably if circularly discuss how-stupid-everyone-but-us-is.
Mocky: or maybe to get in?
mircea_popescu: PeterL how in are you to begin with ? pick a rifle stand a post ; alternatively pick a lord help out in his castle ; alternatively may i suggest radiomodelism ? or perhaps fishing ?
mircea_popescu: republic-as-hobby is a pre 2018 item, really.
mircea_popescu: it has to be ; people are uprooting their households in search of glory, it'd be moronic to insult their toil through an overtolerant attitude towards complacency.
PeterL: I see your point
PeterL: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-09-01#1846578 << I have visited a mosque, it's actually the biggest in the US, in Dearborn MI ☝︎
a111: Logged on 2018-09-01 15:53 mircea_popescu: in fact, thinking about it, me and you might be the ONLY TO people present who've even ever been inside a mosque
mircea_popescu: built before 1492.
PeterL: now you are moving the goal posts
BingoBoingo: Red Queen problem
mircea_popescu: well, if i said "i'm the only guy here to have read illuminated manuscript" and someone said they read beatrix potter's books i'd similarily point out that the term denotes items made before beatrix potter was invented.
mircea_popescu: i outright deny it is possible to build anything other than a ~model~ mosque in the new world.
PeterL: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-08-26#1844708 << my sister-in-law lives in Turkey (teacher at a foreign school), goes in and out every few months just fine, but she was living there before they tightened their border ☝︎
a111: Logged on 2018-08-26 14:56 mircea_popescu: speaking of http://btcbase.org/log/2017-11-11#1736154 you know us citizen can't get into turkey for love or money ?
mircea_popescu: she got dual ?
PeterL: dual citenzship? no, just US citizenship
mircea_popescu: remarkable.
PeterL: unless she married somebody over there and never told anybody in the family, which I guess is possible
mircea_popescu shall put more solvent into this matter.
asciilifeform: i suspect even northkr has a list of 'tolerated untermenschen' with us passport who go in, out
PeterL: she keeps saying we should come visit, so it sounds like at least she thinks US citizens could get in
mircea_popescu: hm.
asciilifeform: https://www.state.gov/r/pa/prs/ps/2017/12/276772.htm << from the reich's mouth; claims visas buyable
asciilifeform: as of dec '17
PeterL: she does get the "randomly selected" additional security screening every time she goes through a US airport, we assume it is just because of "lives in turkey", but maybe she is on a terrorist watch list somewhere
mircea_popescu: double agent! conspiraci!
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i really wouldn't believe the spinsters one iota in this matter. sure as fuck nobody in turkey gave no "assurances" and in general their pretend-sovereign posture is fucking ridiculous, besides spurious.
asciilifeform: seems like the only way to test is empirically
Mocky ducks
mircea_popescu: hey PeterL ... wanna go to turkey ? :D
asciilifeform: asciilifeform ( & pet ) wanted to, for ages
asciilifeform: mecca of archaeology
PeterL: it sounds like a nice place to visit
asciilifeform as a small boy, 'if i jump this-high, can i see turks??'
mircea_popescu: "no, but if you bend over and turn like-so, probably will."
asciilifeform: lol
asciilifeform: 'golden rivet'(tm)(r)
PeterL: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-08-11#1840935 << bingoboingo: when my wife makes bread she adds egg, but it is very small amount, like one egg for batch that makes two loaves each two feet long ☝︎
a111: Logged on 2018-08-11 03:26 mircea_popescu: also stop putting egg in bread. egg is for cozonac, aranygaluska/monkeybread etc, sweetbreads.
mircea_popescu: that's a lot of bread! how long till you go through that ?
PeterL: we have four kids and it is light, fluffy and delicious, it never lasts more than 24 hours
mircea_popescu: ;/
mircea_popescu: in my old age i barely dare a coupla slices a day. and no, they're not footwide slices either ;/
PeterL: or she uses basically the same recipe to make two large pizzas, or about 8 bread bowl sized round loaves to stuff soup in
asciilifeform: re derp.gov, further lulz, https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/international-travel/International-Travel-Country-Information-Pages/Turkey.html >> 'Reconsider travel to Turkey due to terrorism and arbitrary detentions' << didjaknow !
PeterL: then you fill it with a creamy potato soup and basically fall into a starch fueled happy coma after you're done eating
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform the gall, usg talking of arbitrary detentions.
asciilifeform: ikr?
mircea_popescu: org behind 99% of worldwide arbitrary detentions
PeterL: seems like you are more likely to be detained in Turkey if you are government official than visiting tourist
mircea_popescu: this much is certain.
mircea_popescu: in fact, you're universally more likely to be fucked if you ever worked for natoistan than if you haven't.
PeterL: in US on the other hand, don't carry large amounts of cash when crossing the border or being pulled over by police
mircea_popescu: or don't be rich, or powerful, or important, or famous, or... PRETTY.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: thread specifically re usa inmates, tho
mircea_popescu: http://trilema.com/2013/compliance/#selection-101.0-101.175
mircea_popescu: i got links so it did happen!
mircea_popescu: o look at that.
mircea_popescu: 65 second lag at peak, alf. if it makes you feel better.
mircea_popescu: awww!
mircea_popescu: but alf! the intertubes!
mircea_popescu: no ?!
mircea_popescu: BURN THE INFIDEL DOG!
trinque: ahaha
mircea_popescu: wellcome back asciilifeform
mircea_popescu: inb4 nolag.jpg
mircea_popescu: !!up asciilifeform
deedbot: asciilifeform voiced for 30 minutes.
asciilifeform: hm.
asciilifeform: fleanode 'this server is shutting for upgrade...' lulz earlier.
mircea_popescu: too bad you didn't have the 549876598th ~random "error message" handled!
asciilifeform: i still suspect a very noisy 'route through london' lulz afflicting deedbot.
asciilifeform: ( moar lulz, when reconnecting, cycled through 8 or so fleanode boxen before 1 answered )
trinque: deedbot may just be the most visible indication that freenode's shitting the bed. wouldn't have any indication when asciilifeform sent his last message to chan, for example.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform http://p.bvulpes.com/pastes/cltKR/?raw=true << you were in a few times. ☟︎
trinque "well there's flooding down in texas.. all of the telephone lines are down"

trinque: ave1: couldn't reproduce your errors. all I had to do to re-run the cuntoo build was to fix the portage snapshot var. ☟︎
trinque: will cut a release with the v-tronic portage shortly and we can see if that also breaks for ya.
mircea_popescu: Anyone can program: my frustrations arise when they do it without proper specification, testing regime, documentation and “after care”. << it is deeply untrue that anyone can program.
mircea_popescu: and similarily, if "anyone can fuck my wife" you've probably not put enoug thought into this whole wifing business.
cazalla: still works huh, imagine that, hello
mircea_popescu: how's australia's most famous dysfunctional marriage going ?
cazalla: well, i just got back from a month bumming around taiwan, probably says enough
cazalla: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-07-14#1834665 << tbh figured you would have brought the hammer down long before ☝︎
a111: Logged on 2018-07-14 16:31 mircea_popescu: smoking nervously in the corner, cazalla mother[m] valentinbuza zineKing zx2c4 etc.
mircea_popescu: i'm slow.
cazalla: or gracious
mircea_popescu: how come you didn't come up for air back in taiwan anyway ?
cazalla: didn't have the keys
mircea_popescu: well, are you going back ? we've been trying to hire a sinoslut for ages.
cazalla: my new squeeze speaks chinese, can't read or write it though
cazalla: i'll likely go back to do the south of the island, but nothing permanent
mircea_popescu: well, did you come by to make yourself useful, or to say bye ?
cazalla: when i go back, i can try to find someone to fit that role, can't say i'm confident in my ability to come up with someone though
mircea_popescu: why not ?
cazalla: i'd rather come back with nothing if i wasn't certain whatever i found was up to par
cazalla: wasn't*
cazalla: don't want to go out on the real estate rental pamphlet kind of way
mircea_popescu: what par ?
cazalla: the people who have taken jobs, came back claiming what they've brought back is what was wanted when it missed completely
cazalla: ill speak to the new squeeze but she's pretty, not so smart, just as likely to bring me the opposite
mircea_popescu: the whole par is female adolescent non-dull.
cazalla: i guess she could put posters up at work (amkor)
mircea_popescu: eh just go out talk to uni of taiwan hotties.
cazalla: ok
cazalla: worked with the flips so why not
mircea_popescu: this is one of the places where a honest fail is worth some chunk of a flat success.
cazalla: i don't understand how large the difference between traditional v simplified chinese is or if it matters in this case
mircea_popescu: i dun want some european transplant. born there to locals.
mircea_popescu: otherwise i could send my own heh.
cazalla: yeah, i get that, but the taiwanese speak/read/write a different chinese to the mainlanders, as to how different it is i don't know
mircea_popescu: well, find out!
cazalla: i'll give it some thought and planning, likely go back october/november once it cools a bit more
mircea_popescu: alright.
mircea_popescu: you seem in very entirely absent danger of being beaten to the punch, for some incomprehensible reason.
cazalla: funny that, couldn't be an easier place to visit, safe and no visa required up to 90 days, just turn up
mircea_popescu: myeah. i'm aware.
cazalla: anyway, off to the gym, bbl
mircea_popescu: enjoy.
