spyked: granted, it rarely happens for the title to be snipped, e.g. last time was http://btcbase.org/log/2016-10-01#1551126 , http://btcbase.org/log/2016-11-05#1563103 ? ☝︎☝︎

spyked: this would require another regrind, but I'm supposing the time will come when someone will need both trilemabot and logbot in the same place. I can take it upon myself to do this if there's no objections
diana_coman: my understanding was that the logbot was the part one might want to run on its own
spyked: diana_coman, tbh I'm not sure, so I'm posing it as a question. there's also prolly some merit to the idea of each bot having, optionally, a logotron attached to it (since it's already listening...)
spyked: as things stand currently, http://thetarpit.org/posts/y05/080-botworks-regrind.html#selection-311.98-311.247 is true, but logging and responding to commands/voicing aren't ~necessarily~ mutually exclusive ☟︎
spyked: anyway, I'd only ask phf to replace http://btcbase.org/patches?patchset=bot with the keccak patches after figuring out what makes more sense.

mp_en_viaje: very similar process to what ends up in items like http://trilema.com/2016/double-indemnity/ or http://trilema.com/2017/zuleika-dobson-or-an-proper-love-story/ eventually, come to think of it.

a111: Logged on 2019-04-25 20:53 bvt: also, i was under impression that asciilifeform suggests to ditch C after getting sane iron
mp_en_viaje: but i can readily see what was confusing : sometimes the leaps get to be too great to follow. this future where c/c++/c#/javascript/whatever such are relegated to their rightful place is so fucking distant, even merely talking of it likely smacks of lunacy to most anyone.

mp_en_viaje: and to think THIS, specifically THIS promise of the internet, the computer, the future, got implemented for the mass market as apple library and google books and what the fuck not. seriously guyse, point and click interfaces and pageflip animations and "return the virtual book to library" ? ☟︎
mp_en_viaje: there's nothing in nature as fucking dumb as people can get once they start trying to not leave any children behind.
mp_en_viaje: granted, my old style library i grew up with was two to three degrees of magnitude larger than 9mb ; but it sure as fuck took a bunch of people way the fuck more than 15 hours to stitch it all together. and there's 60 seconds in a minute, not 10, and there's 60 minutes in an hour, not ten. and so the fuck on.

mp_en_viaje: if experience's any guide, 99% of linux userland is not useful for any purpose ; of which remaining 1% 99% has to be rewritten anyway as the extant item is so fucking terribly designed and worse implemented as to cost literally as much as it produces ; of the reminder 1% i can at the present time think of very few examples.
mp_en_viaje: this to not even mention how if one wants to review say the code of "ls", all one gets is somrthing ridiculous like http://ftp.gnu.org/pub/gnu/coreutils/ ; there's eminently no http://www.loper-os.org/?p=3156#selection-31.0-157.30

mp_en_viaje: http://btcbase.org/log/2019-04-25#1910015 << in the same vein : INSTEAD of having sane propagation back and forth, which in turn would permit you to let THE OS own the input/output devices, and which would FORCE conformity on the part of programs, you end up with the "oh, program once started owns keyboard ... well, sorta.... and also if anythinf happens has to die... and of couse there's nobody there at its grave to save s ☝︎
a111: Logged on 2019-04-25 21:40 asciilifeform: even positing pc iron and mircea_popescu's 'why not at least rewrite os in ada' , it isn't clear to me why you'd want to keep e.g. unix's retarded process model ( where process cannot , say, propagate an ada exception for sane eggog handling, but is stuck dying and returning numeric barf code ) if you do such thing.
mp_en_viaje: tate or even describe the circumstance... so we hold inquest jury.... bla bla bla bla".
mp_en_viaje: then all the fungus grew to try to somehow shape this miscut rock into usable brick form. so process sorta-owns keyboard but not really except reallier than that but not really except...
mp_en_viaje: just look at the f11 (ie, full screen) semantics for a pile of lulz. both the os AND the browser interpret it ; and if you;re luck on some laptops the bios too. cuz why the fuck ? ☟︎
mp_en_viaje: "oh mp, i didn't even know it's what f11 is". neither did i. and so you get inane bs like http://btcbase.org/log/2019-03-09#1900991 and all the rest of it, too. ☝︎
a111: Logged on 2019-03-09 00:51 hanbot: so there i am merrily entering choices into the kernel config's endless querying on the tail of my cuntoo installation attempt, and i'm noting down all the modules it asks about that don't appear in http://btcbase.org/log/2019-03-08#1900940 for posterity, during which i ctrl + c on the wrong of the two keyboards i'm handling while trying to copy a module name and bam, make dies, which means kernel configuring dies, which means bootstrap.sh dies,
mp_en_viaje: so yes, he's right : description of the "what's wrong with it" could go on for a long time ; but the cause is that everything's wrong with it, each juncture, because being wrong on the left and then on the right in quick succession's just a summed up list of being wrong this way and that yet wrong nevertheless.

BingoBoingo: Local government very surprised. The courts told the derps no, the police chased the derps out (but failed to beat them)...
