billymg: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/trilema/2019-09-18#1937284 << left a response (just got back home a few hours ago)
snsabot: Logged on 2019-09-18 16:09:47 mircea_popescu: shall say what had in mind on man's blog
billymg: and as a small update on my plan -- i'm in the process of securing a place in CR but got cold feet re: turning off the fiat spigot
snsabot: Logged on 2019-06-08 17:23:02 billymg: in my current situation, there is not enough leftover energy for the tasks i'd like to be doing. this could be helped by transferring to a less demanding galley but my current thinking is to do my time, save resources, and then make it a clean break
snsabot: Logged on 2019-06-26 14:48:55 billymg: so i'm planning to give my two weeks notice next week so i can focus on actual work. i'm also going to be looking for property on the other side of the wire
billymg: in casual conversations with my boss it seemed like remote work might be an option, and although i don't think of that as a long term goal it could be useful in fueling the initial settling
billymg: anyway, ima swing by diana_coman's castle since there seems to be a cr convoy thread building over there
lobbes: http://logs.ericbenevides.com/log/trilema/2019-09-22#1937579 << okay, I've got a basic live demo running over in #trilema-lobbes. Here is the sample output: http://blog.ericbenevides.com/2019/09/trilema-lobbes-log-for-2019-09-23/
ericbot: Logged on 2019-09-22 16:37:18 lobbes: With that out of the way it has been going smoothly, and I'm mainly making up for lost time now. It would seem I'm on track to hit my deadline though. I will probably have some demo output for mircea_popescu to look at by the end of the day
lobbes: ( for those that care, ip of my test blog above is )
lobbes: mircea_popescu: pls to let me know if you'd like the formatting tweaked. Both in terms of the textual output of log lines as well as the url format, and title format.
lobbes: also, the code is currently designed for a single chan atm (which would be #trilema, of course). However, would you want multi-chan capability as part of the delivered final product?
lobbes: I'm going to leave demo bot running in my monkey castle for the night, so folx are more than welcome to come and test it / try to break it.
lobbes: incidentally, mircea_popescu with your permission I would like to bring the bot into #trilema during the next week for further testing (it wouldn't need voice; just needs to quietly sit in background). I'd like to see how it handles a heavier log-load
lobbes: anyways, I'm off to write up workplan for week 3, and then bed

mircea_popescu: dude it's such a pleasure, waking up to like THREE republican blog articles ; me shall get to it after breakfasts.
bvt: hi. for me, the meatworld events mentioned in http://bvt-trace.net/2019/08/fg-fed-linux-rng-work-schedule/ are over, i am continuing active fg-kernel work

mircea_popescu: good for you bvt
mircea_popescu: mod6, the machine hosting that keyset magically died earlier -- just as i was about to read your thing, imagine that. seems the mobo went, though tbh it's a little weird, will have it cut up later.
mircea_popescu: anyway, will replace the system during this week ; if it's an emergency/not that important re-encrypt to mp_en_viaje ; if not i'll see then.
mod6: mircea_popescu: oh no! sorry to hear about the mobo. not an emergency at all. in a rush atm, will re-send later, no worries. :]
mircea_popescu: kk
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: how many yrs do you typically get out of those mobos ?
mircea_popescu: this one died in five months.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: if not a mega-seekrit , what was it ?
mircea_popescu: gigabyte something
asciilifeform: fwiw the 1 asciilifeform is sitting on just nao, is going on 14 yrs ( albeit recapped in '17 ) of 24/7 run
asciilifeform: in other noose, ECC event on dulap. 'Corrected error, no action required.'
asciilifeform sees these 1-2x/yr
mircea_popescu: nfi, pretty weird. i have decade+ mobos too
mircea_popescu: but certainly not this one.
mircea_popescu: then again, this i bought a) recently and b) here
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i fully expect that early 2000s mb's will do decade+ unless one hammers nails with'em
mircea_popescu: kinda same.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: betcha it's a dead cap.
mircea_popescu: likely
asciilifeform: apropos historical : '90s workstations ( hp, sgi, even some crapples ) sometimes had mechanically-swappable vreg+caps modules.
asciilifeform: typical example.
mircea_popescu: then again, they totally needed them.
asciilifeform: dunno, i have such things as sgi 'octane', dec 'alpha', from late '90s, that still run w/ orig. components
mircea_popescu: plenty of horror stories from the early 90s, kinda similar to ye olde early-Ttank stories.
asciilifeform: indeed; tho most of these feature konsoomer comps
asciilifeform: the 'clock speed race' tempted vendors into cutting corners (i.e. 'new cpu 2x as hot but we'll use same room-temp-rated parts around it because Who Will Notice!11' )
asciilifeform: components since '70s traditionally sold with 'temperature class' stamp : 'commercial' (saddest; 0-85C) ; 'industrial' (-40-100C) ; 'automobile' (-40-125C) ; 'military' (-55-125C, sometimes moar)
asciilifeform: there are fine gradations inside the 'classes' also (chiefly degradation curves vs temp, e.g. in vreg , de-rated in re max tolerable voltage spike, or hrs of expected life, or both, at high temp ) , it's a quite gnarly biz
mircea_popescu: aha.
asciilifeform: ftr FG was made of 'commercial', to keep cost reasonable. tho i've selected random samples and cooled to -20 / heated to +60 ; passed tests. but item is ftr not made for use inside freezer or oven.
asciilifeform: ( primary headache with higher grades of part , is ~availability~, rather than cost per se (tends to be +10/+20%) -- if yer baking a small (less than 10,000) run, need 'cut-tape' purchase, which usually only exists in 'commercial' grade )
asciilifeform: atm if you want a FG for use in mars probe -- gotta do it sovok-style, take 10 and test in the desired conditions , pick the champ.
asciilifeform: ( if fuel is not a concern, fly all 10 and xor'em!1111 -- in all seriousness, rng is perhaps the easiest part known to man where to implement redundancy )
mircea_popescu: right.
asciilifeform: interestingly, ye olde stochastic logic theoretically gives this for all gates.
snsabot: Logged on 2019-01-15 12:35:38 asciilifeform: you represent the inputs ( any # of'em ) via stochasticizers, i.e. each 1 gets a comparator that eats N bits of rng and outputs a 1 if they represent integer <= the currently latched binary number, 0 otherwise.
asciilifeform: in other noose, 'recent comments' box added to asciilifeform's www. ( phplogy exercise; but generally gaping hole, imho; nao filled. )
