asciilifeform: in entirely unrelated heathen lulz : asciilifeform found an -- apparently working -- usb 'serial device' stack for ice40 . only eats 1/3 of the LUTs in the '8k', too. ☟︎☟︎
asciilifeform: ( + obv. 2 i/o pins, 'd+'/'d-' )
asciilifeform: some fella sat for a year , grunting it out, sorta like asciilifeform in 2012 did -- for a now-extinct chip
asciilifeform: $item claims to do 12Mbaud .
asciilifeform: potentially a long-term cure for ye olde headache with fg's ttl plugs. ☝︎
a111: Logged on 2017-04-11 01:57 asciilifeform: mod6: if you want to talk to a ttl-usb serial dongle, you gotta match one of the classical baud rates, or you get rubbish (and not the desired rubbish, either, but patterned rubbish -- or nothing at all)
asciilifeform bbl:meat
spyked: in spyked updates: feedbot-iii is scheduled to be published this week, followed by schedule for next work, followed by (by now late) pics from http://btcbase.org/log/2019-04-06#1907055 ☝︎☟︎
a111: Logged on 2019-04-06 05:08 spyked is off into the mountains
spyked: meanwhile, asciilifeform's lappie arrived last week, I'ma encuntooate it soon. I expect it'll be a bit of a challenge to compile on 1GB of RAM: cuntoo bootstrapping sadly requires building gcc-5, which iirc asks for more than that. either way, I'ma put this on the list as the next item to document.
spyked: and in http://trilema.com/2019/the-egeszsegfejlesztesi-pont/#selection-153.0-158.0 lulz <-- /me was looking for more photos of this wonderful town, stumbled upon http://archive.is/cXfL7 ; notbad trolling
spyked: http://btcbase.org/log/2019-04-17#1908775 <-- I also signed pre-keccak chs 1-5 and will resign upon reread ☝︎
a111: Logged on 2019-04-17 16:24 asciilifeform: unrelatedly : phf , iirc you signed a coupla ch of ffa prior to the keccak regrind. didja ever sign the reground chs ?
asciilifeform: spyked: iirc that box eats commonplace lappy so-dimm
asciilifeform: circa 2010 or so. visit the flea market.
asciilifeform sadly did not happen to have any of the requisite type, or would've put in
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: will set up your refueling today.
diana_coman: http://btcbase.org/log/2019-04-21#1909210 -> now I get it why asciilifeform doesn't play computer games anymoar - can't compete with real trash pandas! ☝︎
a111: Logged on 2019-04-21 23:35 asciilifeform: meanwhile nailed 1st 'trash panda' of this spring. head popped like melon, eyes ejected.
asciilifeform: lol
diana_coman: I had only one instance of a crow-eating-eyes-out-of-roadkill-hedgehog but I was sadly in a hurry and by the time I came back there was no trace of it left
asciilifeform: i nealy asked 'why wouldja shoot a hedgehog' but then reread lol
diana_coman: I actually like hedgehogs but if it didn't have enough brain to roam the gardens only...
asciilifeform: diana_coman: iirc we had thrd re 'trash panda' ; picture aggressive 20kg rat, eats e.g. cat, tunnels through drywall, w/out breaking a sweat
asciilifeform: with opposable thumb (!) opens rubbish bins, even turns door knobs
diana_coman: ugh; I hate rats as it is, no need for bigger ones; that being said, I can already picture the euloran "stan's layr" complete with lumber-electronics a la http://ossasepia.com/2018/06/26/euloras-own-cr50/ and weird rats/trash pandas to fight for resources.
asciilifeform: heh
asciilifeform brb:tea
diana_coman will dive back into euloran client entrails
spyked: asciilifeform, unfortunately 2GB (max. supported by motherboard) might still not be enuff. ideally I would plug in ave1 gnat build and use it to build a minimal system, but will prolly have to bootstrap the whole thing on another machine. ☟︎
spyked will cross that bridge when he comes to it
asciilifeform: spyked: i admit that i still dunget why it needs the gcc5 step
asciilifeform: i.e. i was able to build conventional gentoo ( per my old recipe ) w/out any such thing in the mix ☟︎
asciilifeform: incl. for a 2gb rk box
trinque: reason is in the logs.
trinque: your traditional recipe is not on musl
asciilifeform: indeed it wasnt
trinque: if somebody finds a way of leaping directly from gcc6 to 4, I'll applaud him, but I'm not burning any more hours of life in there ☟︎☟︎
asciilifeform: !#s from:trinque gcc5
a111: 2 results for "from:trinque gcc5", http://btcbase.org/log-search?q=from%3Atrinque%20gcc5
asciilifeform: hm
asciilifeform: trinque: do you perchance have the thread handy
trinque: http://btcbase.org/log/2017-12-23#1757349 ☝︎
a111: Logged on 2017-12-23 04:39 trinque: I just ran over here, build craps out of gcc-4 with "cannot create executables"
asciilifeform: ty
trinque: no prob
trinque: what I'd *really* like is a binary-reproducible gcc of any stripe, and to create an official image from that, have others duplicate
asciilifeform: trinque: as i understand , orig problem is that the stage3 shipped a gcc6 ?
asciilifeform: ( and that no one had baked a musl stage3 that could be worked from that had <5 ? )
trinque: http://distfiles.gentoo.org/experimental/amd64/musl/ << yep, they purge them pretty aggressively
asciilifeform: i was able to bake a musl 'busybox' linux for pogo in '15, but admittedly this was not a gentoo
asciilifeform: but seems like oughta be doable for a gentoo
asciilifeform: ( i.e. w/ gcc4.9 )
asciilifeform really must dust off the old notes and try this with own hands; the presence of gcc5 in the build bothers asciilifeform not only from 'practical' but from thompsonistic pov
trinque: why not gcc3 or 2 then? where'd the thompson come in? ☟︎
asciilifeform: trinque: speaking moar from concrete than theoretical pov -- gcc5 has documented 'optimizations' that remove bounds checks
trinque: anyhow, my project here was to take a snapshot of a working gentoo musl, i.e. a snapshot of the work of others. I intentally kept myself out of the chain of custody of all deps.
trinque: *intentionally
asciilifeform: trinque: makes sense
trinque: it does not mean that all must e.g. not substitute their own gcc. it just means that this ground, however undesirable, will not be lost like every other time I said "eh gonna go install another gentoo"
trinque: in fact, now that caught, repair *should* commence. gcc is the best first thing to fix. ☟︎
asciilifeform: has anyone attempted to build the whole orchestra on ave1's gcc ?
trinque: his gcc does not build upon musl, so I have not. prodded him a few times about getting his to run on a musl box. ☟︎
asciilifeform: hm.
asciilifeform: seems like that there's the 1st item to fix.
trinque: would be great to see ave1 take this on, and then perhaps get deterministic bins. could cut official ISOs from there ☟︎
asciilifeform: !#seen ave1
a111: 2019-02-19 <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.
asciilifeform: ugh, lost at sea?!
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: ty, generally people are back to work now that "semana de tourismo" has come to an end
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: refuel scheduled, nao waiting' for the traditional telephonic tea ceremony from bank etc
BingoBoingo: [black-thumbsup-emoji]
BingoBoingo: And the locals now want to ban the last cowboysport left in the Country over two dead horses https://www.elobservador.com.uy/nota/jineteadas-una-tradicion-apoyada-por-el-estado-en-jaque-tras-las-muertes-de-caballos-en-el-ruedo-2019421201657
asciilifeform: lol, is this the usual 'ohnoez, what if a legate from clintonistan sees a dead horse!111' ?
BingoBoingo: Las Jineteadas are like bullriding, except bulls are sacred cattle here so instead they piss off some horses and proceed from the bullriding premise
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: The tards started their appeal to INAU, the agency for child and adolescent matters
BingoBoingo: "Stink of the Children!"
asciilifeform: wtf
PeterL: http://btcbase.org/log/2019-04-21#1909210 << are you shooting the raccoons with a SKS, or am I mistakenly mixing these log lines together? ☝︎☟︎

lobbesbot: PeterL: Sent 1 day, 16 hours, and 28 minutes ago: <billymg> yup, if you want the patch that fixes svg image links you can grab mp-wp_update-image-references-to-svg from here http://btcbase.org/patches?patchset=mp-wp&search= - although i recommend going for the latest patch on that page
asciilifeform: PeterL: lolno
asciilifeform: PeterL: unrelated threads.
PeterL: ah, ok
BingoBoingo: The old women are upset so they say "bad for children" just like in old country. And new mayor of Montevideo hasn't even been on the job for a whole month.
BingoBoingo: Air gun kills trash pandas
asciilifeform: PeterL: in city , can't use anyffin that can be heard even from across street
asciilifeform: PeterL: the sks comment was re mp's budapest 'changing of the guard' photo
asciilifeform: where there was a d00d in old-style austrohungarian uniform but with old sovok rifle
PeterL: well, SKS is a pretty riffle when it is shiny
asciilifeform: dunno where you will see a shiny one, outside of museum
BingoBoingo: I've seen the chicoms chrome them for honor guards
asciilifeform: item dates to late '40s
PeterL: I was in a gun store in 2010, they had an SKS for $120, but I didn't get it, wish I did, now they run about $450 around here ☟︎
asciilifeform: at 1 time, they were sold in usa for next to nuffin, aha
BingoBoingo: And the Yugos chrome the inside of the barrels
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: i thought this was standard, from end of ww2 to present day
PeterL: I thought it was everybody but yugo's chrome the barrel?
BingoBoingo: Maybe I got it flipped
PeterL: yugos are the ones who added a grenade launcher to the end
BingoBoingo: But pretty rifle for hunting deer sized animals
BingoBoingo: AH
asciilifeform: iirc sovok was 1st to chrome inside , they carried on using corrosive hg-based primer in shell long past when others quit
PeterL: http://btcbase.org/log/2019-04-18#1909077 << I always picture arrays going left-to-right or top-to-bottom, like you would see if you tell a computer "for x in my_array: print x" ☝︎

PeterL: http://btcbase.org/log/2019-03-15#1902839 << Am I the only one who wears jeans here? I find them comfortable and they are sturdy, good for getting work done. ☝︎
a111: Logged on 2019-03-15 13:12 diana_coman: http://btcbase.org/log/2019-03-15#1902694 -> I always thought jeans were cowboy stuff, not miner; and at least initially part of the "waiting for the americans" i.e. a tribute to an imagined greatness; how it morphed afterwards into an uniform I have no idea.
BingoBoingo: I don't much anymore. Towels coming out of the wash buckets dry faster than jeans.
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: here's an old asciilifeform crackpottery : why exactly can't one buy clothes dryer that runs on vacuum pump, instead of heater. ☟︎
asciilifeform: easily 10x less current for same result, and no moar firehazard etc.
asciilifeform: ( every dry anyffin under vacuum ? )
PeterL: can you run vacuum pump on natural gas?
BingoBoingo: Same reason you can't get borosilicate in the US outside of flea markets, drugwar.
asciilifeform: lol whythefuq
asciilifeform: PeterL: why wouldja want to run the pump on gas?!
asciilifeform: no electric service where you live ?
PeterL: well, my dryer runs on gas
asciilifeform: rright cuz otherwise it'd eat 5kw
asciilifeform: but it only takes ~100w for perhaps ~hour to draw a coupla buckets' sized vacuum
asciilifeform: granted you need a reasonably thick and airtight pot for this
PeterL: I think you are underestimating the power that you would need for this
PeterL: you don't just have to get the vacuum, you also have to vaporize the water ☟︎
asciilifeform: i suppose you'd still have to supply the 23kj/kg or what was the heat of enthalpy
asciilifeform: imho would still be useful tho, to have a suitcase-sized item that can wash and dry a single shirt..
PeterL: I run about 10 loads of wash a week, I don't want something that only handles one T-shirt at a time ☟︎
asciilifeform: err 2.3
asciilifeform: PeterL: thinking moar re travel applications
BingoBoingo: I've got a clothing fork on the balcony that holds quite a bit, but denim just doesn't seem to dry completely before dew falls i the night and gets it wet again.
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: i have neighbours who use clotheslines; the prob is that these ~dunwork ~atall over here 4-5 months of year
asciilifeform: ( i.e. what you hang out, gets wetter, not dryer )
BingoBoingo: I get the sun and wind. Even somewhat sheltered from most rain. More wind can be summoned with the heat pump too. For just about everything except demin it works.
asciilifeform: here of course also 'sun and wind'. but + also swamp.
BingoBoingo: AHA
BingoBoingo: In other olds becoming news Rodrigo of http://btcbase.org/log/2018-08-08#1840381 http://btcbase.org/log/2018-09-04#1847576 sent me a message out of the blue inquiring how the business is going. ☝︎☝︎
