mircea_popescu: meanwhile in trilema throwbacks thursday, http://trilema.com/2015/a-lunatic-with-a-bloodied-axe-could-be-ringing-at-your-door/
mircea_popescu: ANOTHER three years.
mircea_popescu: meanwhile in wtf : iptables -nL works as expected ; iptables -Ln does not ; iptables -L -n does not either. dat "unix philosophy".
mircea_popescu: remembering arbitrary random associations is not enough, gotta now remember their order, also. what -r is recursive and -v is version, grep wants -v to be invert match and curl wants -r to be "range", whatever the fuck yahoos come up with you're stuck learning.

asciilifeform: mightily nifty summary piece btw, diana_coman
asciilifeform: my absolute fave to date in this genre
asciilifeform: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-12-16#1881163 << fwiw in the end i tuned phuctor so has transactions + indices + fast + sliced bread ☝︎
a111: Logged on 2018-12-16 21:11 mircea_popescu: a blog doesn't fucking need! at all!) and so on all come at a cost. which cost you strictly and unmitigatably can not afford in web-facing production environments, period and full stop.
asciilifeform: ( all on postgres tho, and prolly not straight-portable to others, e.g. mysql )
mircea_popescu: prolly should publish this then
mircea_popescu certainly not against having magic postgres ver+config tested out for mp-wp. never stumbled on the magic combo, but also never looked too hard. the hooks are in though, can be switched ~effortlessly.
asciilifeform: is anybody other than asciilifeform using postgres currently ?
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: ben_vulpes is
asciilifeform: the only item i have that is intensely pgistic is indices
mircea_popescu: trinque afaik, the original champion.
asciilifeform: i'ma put on the conveyor, a piece re how to index ( supposing trinque dun get to it 1st )
asciilifeform: i dun have much in the way of seriously deep departure from default global config ( the defaults are surprisingly sane in pg -- e.g., no 'eat infinite ram' default like apparently exists in mysql )
asciilifeform: and, notably, ultra-stable, i planted the thing on pg in '16 and has ran at all times it had a box to run on, 100% duty cycle, no crashes
asciilifeform: inserting a key ( of typical mass, coupla sub-FP's, etc) takes ~100msec.
asciilifeform: search of whole orchestra takes 200-500ms
asciilifeform: ( can try with 'curl' yerself )
mircea_popescu: did you ever get "ddosed" hence ?
asciilifeform: plenty
asciilifeform: regularly. and just about all day, erry day, mass bruteforce idjits. formerly i 'policed' these, iptables, ban lists, but since indices nolonger bother
asciilifeform: they dun affect performance visibly.
mircea_popescu: this is good news.
mircea_popescu: " trust me honey, i’m intelligent. intelligent to know that it takes more than intellect to read your expansive subject line. it takes desire. desire that you did nothing to ignight & are dampening even more"
mircea_popescu: this seems a good question. what did you do to i gnight tonight ?

asciilifeform never heard of the subj d00d of ^ , but pictures that he was typical specimen of http://btcbase.org/log/2016-08-19#1525131 ☝︎

asciilifeform: 'rezistenta prin cultura'(tm)(r)
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform so there you go, ima have her do the entire book, can always read it in human hand now.
mircea_popescu: luxuries of the republic.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform afaik it was bush-era clintonite astroturf, sorta pre-ows crapola.
BingoBoingo: Roughly the same vintage as DailyKos and Howard Dean
mircea_popescu: about 1/10 the capital so to speak.
mircea_popescu: "Early credit also goes to Hugh Daniel (since passed) who administered some of the initial Cypherpunks mailing list infrastructure and IMHO should be considered the fourth Cypherpunks co-founder. For a good and reasonably accurate explanation of the early Cypherpunks days, see the article by Steven Levy in the February 1993 issue of Wired Magazine." << dude, remember back when wired was readable, THIRTY YEARS AGO ?
mircea_popescu: "It's the FBIs, NSAs, and Equifaxes of the world versus a swelling movement of Cypherpunks, civil libertarians, and millionaire hackers. At stake: Whether privacy will exist in the 21st century."
mircea_popescu: top fucking keks.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: near as i can tell, it was a mixture of provocateur shilling and genuinely earnest usefulidjits -- schneier, for instance, was at the time an apparently-earnest 'activist', as was djb (who sued usg at considerable personal expense, and even won in some sense iirc )
mircea_popescu: story of last year's grass : some died, some turned, some went old-stupid-crazy.
mircea_popescu: "A mattress is nestled in the rafters. In a hallway behind the reception desk is a kitchen laden with snack food and soft drinks." << check it out, early google office.
mircea_popescu: it's always funny (for he who, being "old af" isn't born yesterday) just how 100% the "corporate success" bla bla is copied off "oh, those marginal guys whom http://btcbase.org/log/2018-05-04#1809349 " ☝︎
a111: Logged on 2018-05-04 17:15 zx2c4: mircea_popescu: oh. so. "the world doesnt care about the cool hackers on the internet, but only the assholes with prestigious positions." this has been a widely known complaint for a long time
mircea_popescu: "Their mutual interest is the arcane field of cryptography—the study of secret codes and cyphers. The very fact that this group exists, however, is indication that the field is about to shift into overdrive. " << yeah, such overdrive...
mircea_popescu: sadly, the field actually had to wait for us. but anyway, nice try america, you'll be remembered by the five or so people born there. of which i hear one just died.
mircea_popescu: " There is an ad hoc demonstration of a new product, an AT&T "secure" phone, supposedly the first conversation-scrambler that's as simple to use as a standard-issue phone." << the kanzure mickey mouse club still doing this btw.
mircea_popescu: meanwhile in today's fetlife, http://p.bvulpes.com/pastes/Ug2hz/?raw=true : the first reported ~marginal~ failure. (not the first encountered ; but i figure maybe someone has some use for almost-smart-enough female, so why not publicize.)
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: for added lulz, given http://btcbase.org/log/2018-12-07#1878844 , one actually ~could~, in principle, bake 'rsa pnoje' ( in the sense that, e.g., 2048 * (1/.296) ~= 7kbit/s , moar than enuff for voice ) ☝︎
a111: Logged on 2018-12-07 01:40 asciilifeform: meanwhile in ch.14 sneak peeks, modex(2048bit) : 0.296s , 4096bit : 1.786s , 8192bit : 10.766s .
asciilifeform: ( for ~what~ one might want this, is separate q , who the fuq needs voice )
mircea_popescu: these fucktards, spinning around in the desert for 30 years, then aiming to enact moses a fucking statue for his trouble.
asciilifeform: if only merely 'spun in desert'. these are the folx who gave us 'i lost mah keyz' zimmarman, who then pupated into 'rng, what rng' koch, et al

BingoBoingo: 98F... Seems like the window on that one closed a while ago
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo she changed her age since yest, is 19yo.
BingoBoingo: Or a 40 year old man in panties with fake pics
asciilifeform: lol how quickly some folx age!1111
mircea_popescu: this is universally the boon of the internet.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform it's fashionable among a certain set of opinionated female morons, to be 90s and from antarctica.
asciilifeform: i dunno that i've ever thrown anything but rng into 'your age' 'location' etc. crapola survey
mircea_popescu: kinda how 16yo schoolgirls coming from overcomfortable family circumstances (overambitious, overindulgent & overattentive father, overtolerant mother, overflowing dinner table, overisolated [no, no reason for girls to get own room wtf is this])
mircea_popescu: end up doing with themselves.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform the whole gambit of the "safe space" internet is that women will generally put their pics in on the strength of some superficial assurance of friendly environment.
mircea_popescu: stupid, yes, but nobody said sexuate reproduction comes at 0 cost. seduction has to occur ~somehow~, the ship has a hole for a purpose.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i heard before this phrase. what does it mean? 'this here is safe, but that there is where crocodile will emerge from your terminal and bite' ??
mircea_popescu: "nobody will profer negative judgements on you without your permission"
mircea_popescu: is what it means.
asciilifeform: how dumb does critter have to be, to buy this ?
mircea_popescu: it has not to be dumb at all. it has to be ~FEMALE~.
mircea_popescu: recall ye olde http://btcbase.org/log/2018-12-15#1880981 ? ☝︎
a111: Logged on 2018-12-15 18:13 asciilifeform: sorta how i've met runners, even competition-grade ones, but they did not run all day, erry day, to kitchen, to toilet, etc
asciilifeform: aha
mircea_popescu: well so then. she can be as smart as you wish, a cunt she's still got, and that hole in the body comes with a hole in the mind.
asciilifeform sometimes to pet, 'pause feeming for a moment and think through $item' 'ok..'
mircea_popescu: because if it didn't, you understand, we'd have the problems of waterbugs
asciilifeform: seems like we do have problem of waterbug
mircea_popescu: did i recount the lulzy story of female waterbugs having developed a cunt shield, and so male waterbugs holdsing them on water close to frogs and jumping ?
asciilifeform: (at least some of the time)
asciilifeform: yes
asciilifeform: 'frog march'
mircea_popescu: right.
asciilifeform: well-known item
mircea_popescu: human females have no cunt shield.
mircea_popescu: attempts to fashion one, (out of the powers of imagination, of course), is what ultimately distinguish the west and the east franks.
asciilifeform: it always 'wants' to grow a shield, in same way as bridge 'wants to fall'
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo : "morningRebel 18F Switch Pest, Hungary orientation: Pansexual active: Curious And Want To Try is looking for: A mentor/teacherFriendshipA MasterA Mistress" original blurb bot recorded.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform in my experience, never wants, sometimes grudgingly has to because morons.
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Well, rotating bridge in Carmelo got beat up over the weekend by a roaving gang of feral boats.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform you ever saw http://trilema.com/2017/1950s-cretinetti-i-soliti-ignoti-il-vedovo/#selection-67.0-67.9 ?
mircea_popescu: superb film, the wife's an archetype. "me sono cascata anche io...", golden words.
asciilifeform: haven't seen; will put on list
mircea_popescu: put it on top, it's one of the few masterpieces of that aspiring art.
asciilifeform: neato.
mircea_popescu: and let me underscore, the original dialogues are pure poetry, watching it dubbed or trusting subtitles is like reading bowdler's shakespeare.
mircea_popescu: fortunately they speak uncharacteristically roman (ie, clean) italian for the period.
asciilifeform: unrelatedly, mircea_popescu do ya think you can muster 30-40min this wk to eat the 14a maffs ? i'd like to know asap if there's typo or other hole.
mircea_popescu: christmas week, why not :)
asciilifeform: ty
asciilifeform: btw i ended up using mircea_popescu's formatting pill.
mircea_popescu: cool.
asciilifeform: wb Mocky
Mocky: thx asciilifeform
mircea_popescu: how's mordor
Mocky: it smarts
Mocky: in other 1024 chickens, http://archive.is/d8ypc#selection-445.0-577.9 "High-performing distributed engineering teams with African talent"
asciilifeform: sounds like serious dry spell in heathendom, or wat
Mocky: subj company apparently has quite healthy growth rate. my guess is they are trying to undercut the bottom tier 'coder' segment
Mocky: either that or "catalyzing an interconnected global tech ecosystem" lol
asciilifeform: !Q later tell phf didja ever try asking dks for PAL src's ?

BingoBoingo: cruciform: Use !!received-invoices to see the invoice and then !!pay-invoice sender-nick invoice-number to settle the invoice
BingoBoingo: And please get your SSH public key to me
cruciform: BingoBoingo, will do, many thanks!
BingoBoingo: Let me know if I can be of any assistance
cruciform: BingoBoingo, deedbot has returned a hexstring in response to !!pay-invoice command?
BingoBoingo: Enter where deedbot can see it, !!v longstring
BingoBoingo: And that will get deedbot to execute the command.
BingoBoingo: Everything with deedbot is challenge response, gotta keep proving your are you and you have your privates
cruciform: gotcha, makes sense
cruciform: "cruciform paid cruciform invoice 1"?
BingoBoingo: Ah, sender-nick in this context refers to the person issuing the invoice rather than invoking the !!pay-invoice command. It's a brevity-vs-ambiguity issue with the documentation
cruciform: BingoBoingo, ie. !!pay-invoice BingoBoingo 1? I'm not getting any response after !!v longstring resulting from that
BingoBoingo: What does your output from !!received-invoices look like?
cruciform: shows Invoice #1, from you, for 0.0233BTC
trinque: cruciform: have you ever made a deposit with the bot?
cruciform: trinque, no
trinque: you will not be able to pay an invoice without first having done so.
cruciform: aha, thanks - is there a deedbot manual listing the commands to do so?
BingoBoingo: cruciform: http://deedbot.org/help.html here it is
BingoBoingo: And when you deposit, make sure to ping trinque so he checks the printers in his red room
cruciform: trinque, deposited
asciilifeform: in other lulz, there is apparently some published work on reversing a PAL via timing side-channel . ( the rub: it's in cn... )
