mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo "while state and local are being" whats ?
mircea_popescu: lol, "It seems more plausible that a foreign operative or an operative working on a foreign government's behalf might have been able to install an antenna/sensor apparatus onto the top of a structure that is part of the facility and within line-of-sight of the valley below without anyone noticing. This could allow them to persistently gather electronic intelligence on whatever might be happening on, around, and over White San
mircea_popescu: ds and at Holloman. With the capabilities of modern electronics and batteries, it's possible that such a system wouldn't even need to be hard wired. "
mircea_popescu: check 'em out, like, figuring things out and shit!

trinque: somebody should really write a republican version control system someday
trinque: PeterL, unfuck your head.
mircea_popescu: "and the rest will follow" ?
trinque: at least it'd have a chance.
mircea_popescu: meanwhile in random lulz, "Using slang you didn't come up with isn't a substitute for having a personality. And that's the Internet in a nutshell today: a bunch of vapid morons trying to be cool by parroting phrases back and forth to each other. It's meme language, and just like people use memes as a substitute for their inability to tell a joke or make a cogent statement, people use this type of language to seem hip-adjacent
mircea_popescu: . You're not hip, and you're hoping desperately that nobody notices."
mircea_popescu: internet "of today" runs into internet of 1990s : maddox saying "the obvious" that "nobody wants to hear", inexplicably enough nobody gives a shit.
mircea_popescu: ah if only it were 1998 again, how bien trouve shit like "hip-adjacent" would catch wings and fly! what a "dank meme" it'd have been, back before they had a word for it.
mircea_popescu: meanwhile in alt coins, "Super Male Vitality is the result of ancient wisdom reinterpreted over several years in the light of modern equipment and analysis."

diana_coman: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-09-14#1850437 -> following on from this, I had a look in more detail at the code for gnat.sockets; my conclusion is that gnat.sockets has as main contribution the streams + forcing the weird dance with types; underlying gnat.sockets is the "thin layer" that essentially wraps the system's C functions for sockets☝︎
a111: Logged on 2018-09-14 16:48 diana_coman: I certainly have to consider that option too if all that gnat.sockets buys me is some bloat + streams
diana_coman: while initially I considered using this thin layer, on a deeper look at it, I don't like it; here is the code of it: https://www2.adacore.com/gap-static/GNAT_Book/html/rts/g-socthi__ads.htm and https://www2.adacore.com/gap-static/GNAT_Book/html/rts/g-socthi__adb.htm
diana_coman: moreover, the thin layer is in principle internal to gnat.sockets so it's not even meant to be directly used from outside (compiler will throw a warning though nothing worse than that afaik)
diana_coman: overall this leaves me with the fact that I'll have to make my own "thin layer" with only what I need, certainly thinner than gnat.sockets + gnat.sockets.thin
diana_coman: for lulz from the above code: -- Return highest numbered socket (what does this refer to???)

mircea_popescu: diana_coman would this be written in ada then ?
diana_coman: mircea_popescu, it would still wrap recv and send at the very least
mircea_popescu: more specifically : what exactly is the limit of the "c-ness" of the system calls ? can we pretend they're ada system calls until they are ?
diana_coman: I don't know what an "ada system call" is, to answer that question; my aim is indeed to wrap them in one place so that everything else makes ada calls and doesn't care
mircea_popescu: "According to POSIX.1-2001, the msg_controllen field of the msghdr structure should be typed as socklen_t, but glibc currently types it as size_t. " and other joys of the c world.
mircea_popescu: half the fucxking manual on recv deals with a) spurious extra prototypes and b) data size definition soup.
diana_coman: myeah; I did not even pretend I *like* to have to do this
mircea_popescu: diana_coman but would the wrapper be c or ada ?
diana_coman: how would it be c??
diana_coman: or why, lol
diana_coman: if it's c, there's no need for a wrapper
mircea_popescu: why i dunno ; how however -- gnat will compile c.
diana_coman: sure, but what's the point in wrapping a c call in more c code, I'm not sure I follow what you have in mind
mircea_popescu: are you going to write an ada program to treat c-defined syscalls as black boxes and spit out ada acceptable output ; opr are you going to write a c program to treat c-defined syscalls as compatriots and spit out ada acceptable output ?
mircea_popescu: i'm just checking things!
diana_coman: first
mircea_popescu: how are you going to handle the weird data models implied by teh nutty syscalls in an ada proggy ?
diana_coman: as I dig into them deeper, I shall know! lol
mircea_popescu: lol ok.
diana_coman: if I knew all that, it'd be ...ready
diana_coman: not like typing takes a lot of time
mircea_popescu: alrighty.
mircea_popescu: meanwhile in other lulz, the middle english word for "raise awareness" would be... animadverting.
mircea_popescu: strangely enough disused, seeing how it's shorter.
