asciilifeform: ( on rk, 0 and 1 respectively )
mircea_popescu: yeah, but... if you'rte gonna beef-server, might as well get a 32 core monster.
asciilifeform: i also have an old and well-oiled toolchain for it, where can e.g. throw customer payload directly into rom, if desired
mircea_popescu: basically there's not much room for middle here. either rk or else monster -- even things such as shared hosting are better off on large x86 server than a bunch of mid ones
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: apu is something rather like a x64 rk.
mircea_popescu: aha.
mircea_popescu: kinda my point.
asciilifeform: ( btw there was to be a demo unit of same in the 1st crate, but did not fit masswise )
BingoBoingo: APU can also be kitted to Gutenburg mirror with appropriate drives and ECC RAM
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: iirc no ecc on either
asciilifeform: ( i'd pay in gold for small box with ecc, dun exist afaik )
asciilifeform: it remains a serious wtf to me : think, bolix had ecc.
asciilifeform: in 1984.
BingoBoingo: Ah, apu2 is ECC ram, but newer stinkier AMD "Jaguar"
asciilifeform: we won't be using apu2 at piz
asciilifeform: it is infested
BingoBoingo: bobcat's plenty fast
asciilifeform: ( not unless somebody pays to colo one, at any rate )
asciilifeform: see, asciilifeform has an actual blobless bios for apu1.
BingoBoingo: Ain't nobody doing blobless for "Jaguar"
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: http://btcbase.org/log/2019-02-18#1897935 << to allow for power and sufficient thermal , 4 per 1u. ☝︎
a111: Logged on 2019-02-18 23:15 BingoBoingo: 6 or 8 to the 1U chasis?
BingoBoingo: But Bobcat like the apu1 has is sitting on my desk
asciilifeform: ( it may be possible to pack'em tighter, but currently imho reliability trumps max utilization of cubic metrage )
BingoBoingo: Has only gotten faster since I first put it on the desk in 2010 or 2011

asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: apu1 will be exactly same as when i 1st laid hands on it in '14
asciilifeform: afaik they haven't changed the chipset.
asciilifeform: that's half the appeal, all of my recipe for it still worx.
asciilifeform: trb-capable box, btw, i have one going .
asciilifeform: http://bvt-trace.net/2019/02/gnat-zero-cost-exceptions-and-asynchronous-task-aborting-part-3/#selection-49.0-58.0 << pretty great.
asciilifeform indeed expected that it's 100% gcc5ism
asciilifeform: in entirely other noose, the xray worx...
mircea_popescu: cool deal.\]
asciilifeform: 1st photo subj is those dead samsung ssd stix BingoBoingo sent in.
asciilifeform will post a scan once he gets a decent exposure, this may not be today, aint a priority item
asciilifeform: will also be interesting at some pt to roast a ~working~ ssd; in theory soft xray eats ssd
asciilifeform: nobody seems to publish the test data on subj tho, aside from 'golden toilet' ic houses
asciilifeform: re ^ -- the steel shell is a bitch, will need tuning for kv. but for demo purposes, the FG analogue board photo ~did~ come out pretty well, will scan it when it dries.

BingoBoingo: In other news, taking my walk tonight I got the celebrity treatment for ~3 minutes. A group of local youth in the city for back to school asked me for directions and were thrilled to discover in Gringo in the wild who could indeed offer directions.
BingoBoingo: I did not join the group as it was composed of 4 dorks and 5 morbidly obese fem-presenting mayos.

asciilifeform: trinque: oh hey
asciilifeform: are these posted ?

ave1: asciilifeform, re http://btcbase.org/log/2019-02-18#1897899, a genesis of the build scripts or gcc?, with the build scripts we'll get diffs of diffs (which should work now) ☝︎
a111: Logged on 2019-02-18 17:43 asciilifeform: ave1 are you gonna bake one ? someone's gotta, and i will with own hands if no one has it

For one thing I'd much rather download from a republican site and for the other as experience has already amply shown, any external site WILL move them, change them, drop them and it will at best br
ave1: Btw asciilifeform, I had to switch my cheap NFS account to a more expensive one as php 5.6 is no longer supported in their new setup. I expect that sometime, at the end of this year, 5.6 will also disappear from "production" sites.

BingoBoingo: ^ Bed time
mircea_popescu: the mister god point is pretty fucking lulzy, not to mention accurate.
BingoBoingo: Ah, ty fixed the double You in that footnote
asciilifeform updated testfire piece ( die shot detail )
asciilifeform: http://www.loper-os.org/pub/misc/xray/dead_samsung_35kv_100s.jpg << to complete yest. thrd : the least rubbishy shot of the dead samsung. steel shell prolly calls for a scintillator screen , and large film, to actually get decent shot. but even here usbistic contacts sorta visible.
asciilifeform: incidentally, asciilifeform was thinking, glitter + epoxy + xray == pretty good '3d' seal.
BingoBoingo: That it could
asciilifeform: the obv problem is that you need 70kg of deathray to verify the seal
asciilifeform: ( plus dose the poor silicon erry time )
asciilifeform: you'd want pb foil over the packages, ideally
BingoBoingo: Well, it isn't unthinkable that 70 kg of deathray ends up being a fairly common castle ammenity
asciilifeform: fuhrerbunker , we know had one ( fella was obsessed with 'what if mailbomb' etc )
asciilifeform: 1 slightly moar practical variant of this seal would be if could make the 'glitter' in the epoxy from kcl or other commonplace mild radioactive. then tape instant film over the chassis and develop/swap erry coupla months, and compare the liquishit to previous photo.
asciilifeform considered this yrs ago as a possible onetimepad scheme , but not satisfied that it could be repeatable enuff for digitize
asciilifeform: recall, thrd where 'is it possible to make a bag of rngola that 1) exists in 2 copies 2) cannot be quickly read in transit to destination'
BingoBoingo: Meanwhile, in the "Your average guy" files: http://archive.is/loUn7
asciilifeform: ugh
asciilifeform prefers the http://btcbase.org/log/2019-02-12#1895439 site, at least was sorta entertaining ☝︎

bvt: trinque: booted just fine after messing with kernel config a bit, which is expected from a previously not used machine
