mircea_popescu: right ? suppose you found your wife through chain of events thereby started. shall i ask you %q's about wife-finding now ?
asciilifeform: no, makes sense.
mircea_popescu: for what it's worth, chet & i ran into each other on meanwhile-defunct 2d game /me briefly played while being hidden away in a bunker many years ago, to not go entirely fucking mad.
mircea_popescu: whereas hanbot & i ran into each other literally on collarme forums.
asciilifeform could prolly happily live for yr in a bunker with net pipe
mircea_popescu: yet i am convinced you can play 2d games until the end of creation not unearth me another chet.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform period mp had exactly 0 theorems to prove.
asciilifeform also did not always have theorem to prove
asciilifeform: but sure.
mircea_popescu: the encounters of intelligent people always have this mocky flavour, "fuck me, i was sitting here looking for a bitcoin game now it seems i'm going to qatar ?! these people ask the wrong fucking questions!"
mircea_popescu: anyway, for citizens interested in more serious work : i shall prolly delay report making for a few days, because well, this month started with apendicitis hanbot, and i'm not going to force the very pleasant locals to set up their er/surgery hotel with my complicated red boxes.
asciilifeform wishes a speedy return to health to hanbot
mircea_popescu: she is outside danger.

asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: v.py was my orig vtron , as preserved in amber in http://trilema.com/2015/no-such-labs-releases-v-for-victory/

asciilifeform: then , iirc, punkman ( now-defunkt greek d00d ) wrote one ; then ben_vulpes
mircea_popescu: ah right you are, his was a product of "ima try to reimplement to understand this".
asciilifeform: afaik there are currently 3 working ( i.e. with keccak format ) vtrons , v.py ( as patched by phf ) , v.pl ( patched by diana_coman ) and esthlos

mircea_popescu: spyked re http://thetarpit.org/posts/y05/080-botworks-regrind.html#fn4 : the "wrong cut" i'm affraid is the baked-in expectation that you (the impersonal you) might "choose" among "versions" of something as fundamental as the db system, somewhere as late in the flow of things as the userland.
auctionbot: Buy order # 1009: 2k wFF Heard: 499.99mn from mats. Ending: 2018-12-07 06:34:14.465343 UTC (83 hours 37 mins)
mircea_popescu: frankly stated this is patent idiocy, the decision of whether eg driving on right or on left can not possibly come AFTER one has decided whether they want to go out to pub or disco.
mircea_popescu: so no, there's no such thing as "i want mysql and he wants postgres" possible, there has to be an "use this db system for these reasons" much further upstream. ☟︎
mircea_popescu: this doesn't jive with the current situation, true, but it's in the sense of "healthy domestic relationships do not jive with usg.familycourt nonsense" / "good health dun work with cancer cells present" and so on.
mircea_popescu: we're stuck with paper bridges between pantsuit alt-reality and the construction of republican sanity, which have to be expensively (if temporarily) maintained. the management of the leaking insanity will be a major function of the lordship and overal brain sink going forward, because obviously a bevy of "patch-this-for-that" could at least in principle overburden V conceptually to the point of failure. ☟︎
mircea_popescu: (if at every node there's multiple tree splits, "here's logbot with mysql, here's logbot with postgres, here's logbot with flatfile, then there's ircbot with mysql, ircbot with..." and so on, the point of even having V is lost, the expense of maintaining the chaos rapidly exceeds the benefits of not living in chaos, and we're right back at "only way to do versioning is github". because yes, for idiots, the sort of disorganise ☟︎
mircea_popescu: d minds that produce the sort of crap one finds on github, indeed github's the necessary manner and only way.)
mircea_popescu: that said, yes there's evidently a mysql-vs-postrgres holy war in the brewing here. but i don't think that boil's baked enough for lancing just yet.
mircea_popescu: sad fact of the matter is, mysql works extremely well for one edge of what we do (witness http://btcbase.org/log/2018-11-15#1872279 ) while postgres works extremely well for another edge of what we do (witness http://btcbase.org/log/2018-10-13#1861669 ). ☝︎☝︎

asciilifeform: 'The story was very typical. The famous Roifman who was at the center of the first of the “textile trials” also kept his mouth shut, so that not even the snoopers could talk him round. Then he was summoned to see Semichastny, head of the KGB, and Malyarov, the Deputy Public Prosecutor, who gave him their sincere Party word that he wouldn’t be shot if he gave up his riches. Roifman believed them, handed in his valuables—and ☟︎
asciilifeform: was shot. There were many ridiculous aspects to this form of bargaining. Underground millionaires are reluctant to part with their accumulated riches, but they don’t want to lose their lives either, so they start giving up their gold bit by bit, swearing each time that this installment is the last. But the investigators and the snoopers are perfectly well aware that there is more to come, and they keep up the pressure. “Listen,
asciilifeform: ” they tell him, “the October holidays will soon be here, the anniversary of the Revolution. Give us a bit more for the anniversary and they’ll probably lop a couple more years off.” So he hands in his gold in installments—some for November 7, some for May 1, then for Constitution Day, and maybe even for March 8 (Women’s Day). The investigator gets his bonuses, the snoopers early release, and the millionaire—a bullet.'
