asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: turdogram sent
decimation: asciilifeform: it amuses me that there are fans of ada in ru
asciilifeform: decimation: why ?
decimation: I guess it flows with your 'foreign warez' theory
decimation: because it's a us mil standard
asciilifeform: decimation: i've no personal knowledge of american ada 'warez' being used in ru (PL/I, oddly enough - yes)
asciilifeform: decimation: but it appears that the thing is genuinely popular among the very small but very well-paid set of folks who write programs that -actually have to work-
asciilifeform: as for the compiler, it's been part of vanilla gcc for years.
decimation: yeah, ru has an outsized (normalized by bezzle gdp) aerospace industry
asciilifeform: (there's a 'bleeding edge' version pushed out by ada foundation, which slowly merges back into gcc, as i understand. that version is also gpl, but the standard lib is also gpl - unlike the gcc ada, where it is lgpl)
asciilifeform: ada is also used in the banking sector (the only countries for which i have strong clues of this being the fact are ch and ua)
asciilifeform: programmers (esp. ones who see it on the net one time, rather than using seriously) exquisitely hate it. the users, on the other hand, whose 'boeing' stays up and who never have to learn that the program exists at all - love it.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: b-n should be c-n in turdogram
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: dunno how i missed that

assbot: 777 E/E Bay - YouTube ... ( http://bit.ly/17MjBMb )
decimation: note that it is placed in the first class cabin
decimation: there's some conspiracy theorists who believe that the missing malaysian 777 might have been a heist pulled off by guys who busted into the engineering bay and messed with the electronics
decimation: skip to 5:00 to see the portable terminal that can be connected to the equipment for in-flight troubleshooting
asciilifeform: lol, no lock
decimation: in theory, if you knew what you were doing, you could break into that bay and 'pilot' the plane from there
asciilifeform like a t0t4l n00b, always assumed that junk lives in the cockpit, under the dashboard
decimation: it depends, some of it is
decimation: the cockpit is mostly 'remote front panels' in modern planes to my knowledge
decimation: plus there are various databuses the connect the plane. supposedly on new planes they are moving to a special form of ethernet, strangely enough

asciilifeform: 'Looking at this broad landscape of failure, there are two ways to interpret it. One is that the US officialdom is the most incompetent one imaginable, and can't ever get anything right. But another is that they do not succeed for a distinctly different reason: they don't succeed because results don't matter. You see, if failure were a problem, then there would be some sort of pressure coming from somewhere or other within the
asciilifeform: establishment, and that pressure to succeed might sporadically give rise to improved performance, leading to at least a few instances of success. But if in fact failure is no problem at all, and if instead there was some sort of pressure to fail, then we would see exactly what we do see.'

mircea_popescu: uh.
mircea_popescu: im not even sure what that's supposed to mean
decimation: Johannes Gross, one of the smartest German journalists, wrote: The longer the third reich is dead, the greater the resistance against hitler and his ilk becomes"
decimation: the point is that being anti-nazi is easy and super popular today
mircea_popescu: but i mean...
decimation: not so much in 1943
mircea_popescu: this is patently untrue.
mircea_popescu: being anti-nazi was the thing in 1943. today... would you not fuck a nazi ?
decimation: heh
decimation: in berlin it's otherwise
mircea_popescu: you know, berlin women got raped by the soviets mostly.
mircea_popescu: and that's quite similar : the soviets were impopular in 1990, more so than in 2010.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform it's at least rethorically seductive, this theory. "the us is basically emo, it wants to fail."
decimation: yeah but I don't think it 'wants to fail' because of a secret cabal of financiers

ben_vulpes: mircea_popescu: now for to find some time to 'play' 'games'
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes consider it gambling.
mircea_popescu: Political collapse will be resisted, and the way it will be resisted is by starting as many wars as possible, to produce a vast backdrop of failure to serve as a rationale for all sorts of “emergency measures,” << i said this a number of times, but it bears repeating : if this happens every usg employee, past or present, hangs by his guts.

thestringpuller: " strategically speaking I intend to create a digital services marketplace, and would very much like to use the large and varied needs of Eulora acquisition to seed that platform"
thestringpuller: That pretty much is turbosquid just, with USD.
decimation: this happened mere months after the revolution was proclaimed to be 'of the people', 'for human rights', 'freedom', etc

ben_vulpes: "don't put yr pennies down, kid. you'll just lose 'em".

pete_dushenski: Since our blockchain has a number of important differences with the Bitcoin blockchain (mainly in transaction density), stemming from the extremely short 12s block time we’re aiming for, we would have to use not the blockchain data itself like Hashimoto but rather an artifcially created dataset, done with an algorithm known as Dagger (yes, some will remember it as Vitalik’s first and flawed attempt at a memo
pete_dushenski: ry-hard proof-of-work).
pete_dushenski: While this looked like a good direction to be going in, a swift audit of Vitalik and Matt’s initial algorithm by Tim Hughes (ex-Director of Technology at Frontier Developments and expert in low-level CPU and GPU operation and optimisation) showed major flaws. "
pete_dushenski: "When deep in nitty gritty of development you sometimes forget quite how world-altering the technology you’re creating is, which is probably just as well since the gravity of the matter at hand would be continually distracting. "

ben_vulpes: and on the other hand, well, nominal equity in a thing?
ben_vulpes: shit like...
ben_vulpes: I don’t believe payments to owners in professional services firms are the residual profits. And why should they be, when the employees can leave and set up shop across the street with almost no need for equity capital? In the implicit negotiation over distribution of revenue, the employees have all the bargaining power. The equity will be paid a fair return, but will not receive any structural
ben_vulpes: increases in revenue. On the other hand,
ben_vulpes: the equity will continue to bear the majority of the variability in profits. This view, while not the standard economic view, has the advantage of being supported by reality. (It also accounts for why non-partner-owned professional services firms tend to conglomerate, but that’s another post.)”
ben_vulpes: just rings too true for comfort though.
ben_vulpes: perhaps i'm insane or a particularly good scammer, but i can close deals that none of the programmers on staff could ever dream of. hilariously, because they're on staff.
ben_vulpes: but at the same time, because i'm not a nightmare to work with, i have a near-infinite sell wall of talent.
ben_vulpes: so basically i can't really figure anything out.
ben_vulpes: halp
jurov: "peristaltic, multi-tentacular infinite length dildos" ... guess it was inevitable someday on this chan
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes that made no sense. missing context ?

ben_vulpes: "when the employees can leave and set up shop across the street with almost no need for equity capital" << this is absolutely true, except for the part where they have to close deals. make friends with checkbooks, convince checkbooks of non-retardation, etc.
ben_vulpes: "the equity will continue to bear the majority of the variability in profits" << painfully true.

ben_vulpes: devs clock time, get paid hours. simple maffs.
Vexual: ascicminer sinsures all itsa subsiduriaries?
mircea_popescu: it seems a rehash of "i could code mpex in an afternoon. you kidding, it has no css even"

ben_vulpes: for tax reasons, i clock infinity hours, get paid exactly the same amount (for medicare/aid purposes) each month.
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes essentially, i don't think you're proceeding on actually defined (or even considered) symbols.
ben_vulpes: that's certainly possible.
mircea_popescu: unrelatedly : the article does the valuable service of reminind people of volcker's potion. yes, interest rates WERE 20% in 81.
mircea_popescu: and yes it did work. and no, the bezzle wasn't as bad then as it is now.
mircea_popescu: and yes that's what i'd do as fed chairman : interest hike to 35%.
ben_vulpes: what's a reasonable set of symbols?
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes these can be fine if you can actually explain them. so, how is it true ?
Vexual: everything mariio bros
ben_vulpes: so equity being ownership stake in derpy consulting co.
ben_vulpes: profits being that which is left over after paying out contractors, staff, rent etc.
mircea_popescu: i don't think you understand what equity is.
Vexual: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yBjbHZrjckk fuck snow
mircea_popescu: equity is the accounting term for the philosophical notion of fairness.
ben_vulpes: ah.
mircea_popescu: so for instance : if you go fishing in my boat,
mircea_popescu: i have an equity interest in your fish. because it was my boat.
cazalla: Vexual, no idea, some people are pinning the theft on friedcat and provided a supposed chinese police report but turned out it was a .. random birth certificate
mircea_popescu: that equity is not the ownership of the boat, but an effect thereof.
Vexual: yeah busininess breed paranoia
mircea_popescu: this should readily resolve the apparent dilemma : if i do in fact have equity in your firm, it means i did something useful.
mircea_popescu: this means that if i hadn't the equity, it wouldn't be "the same thing".
mircea_popescu: right ?

ben_vulpes: perhaps the dillema isn't so clear to me, likely due to symbolic confusion.
ben_vulpes: let's try again.
ben_vulpes: i could freelance, at some rate - let's say 2BTC/hr
ben_vulpes: (impossible, but for rounding errors)
mircea_popescu: ok.
ben_vulpes: instead, i coordinate work of the type i could perform on my own. that work costs me, let's say .8B. i bill at ~1.8. on volume, my take home is ~1.5B/hr (assuming 40hrs/wk, 50wks/yr. salary equality assumptions, etc.).
mircea_popescu: ok.
mircea_popescu: " They also remember the high-tech crash of 1984, and the screams of pain up and down Wall Street." << heh it nearly killed gaming altogether, and is responsible for killing consoles. (yes they still exist, but gaming is essentially a pc item) ☟︎
ben_vulpes: the linked article on one hand doesn't make a terrific amount of sense to me because for whatever reason (perhaps i'm a particularly well-doing con man), i can sell into the buy side of "professional services" at rates that my "bankers" can't touch on their own.
ben_vulpes: on the other hand, during those thing months, the "bankers" walk with hours*rate, and i lose money.
mircea_popescu: that reason having a lot to do with the equity of your position, which you don't account for.
mircea_popescu: " my take home is ~1.5B/hr" [+ ??? B/hr in equity]
ben_vulpes: right, so we come back around to equity which i clearly don't understand formally.
ben_vulpes: yeah i have no idea how to account for that.
mircea_popescu: you do, yes. " except for the part where they have to close deals. make friends with checkbooks, convince checkbooks of non-retardation, etc"
mircea_popescu: those are all examples.
ben_vulpes: ouch.

ben_vulpes: i can think of fifteen utterly moronic doodz doing running precisely the same hustle and making vastly more money at it.
ben_vulpes: 99% of that is likely attributable to simply how much longer they've been doing it for.
mircea_popescu: cash basis is a very poor accounting principle.
mircea_popescu: it's fundamentally what makes people chase college degrees instead of being plumbers ; and the impulse that makes people quit their job and take up gambling after a neighbour strikes the powerball.,
ben_vulpes: ugh yeah and ofc shartups.
ben_vulpes: so here's the thing about shartups:
mircea_popescu: you're better off with equity than with cash, provided you can distinguish good from bad
mircea_popescu: cash has this advantage, that it's all the same.
mircea_popescu: currently, that all the same means equally bad.

mircea_popescu: duh.

ascii_field: it's built as part of the thing
ascii_field: catch-22
ascii_field: at any rate, i got past that by ./configure --with-GL=no
mod6: yeah, up above. i saw that. hmm.
ascii_field: now 'gprbuild' won't build
ascii_field: what a joke this whole 'open' thing is
ascii_field: every time i do this, i get the distinct feeling that i'm the only living thing other than the package maintainer/developer who tried to build it ☟︎
ascii_field: and everybody else just chumps along using the binary pkg
mod6: haha. "some assembly required"
ascii_field: i have no problem whatsoever with 'some assembly required'
mod6: it used to be that everyone built from the source. yah, now most people just rely on their package system
ascii_field: but the shitgnomes don't sleep, and they break off necessary parts
ascii_field: and using vintage netbsd or whatever mircea_popescu does, is not a magic pill against this
ascii_field: because the info re: what combination of p,q,r,s,t...that add up to a working z is lost to the sands of time
ascii_field: because 9 out of 10 times it only existed on the original author's machine
ascii_field: and he wasn't even aware of it
mod6: ya, i see what you mean

mircea_popescu: but otherwise, the bit of history they're trying to purge is that vessennes was the head and treasurer of the thing, in total outrageous breach of common practice, and he got all the early bitcoin donated to it in his own name and used it for his own purposes.
ascii_field: if anyone actually gives a fuck about these, cache'em - archive.org can and has been prevailed upon to do the 'polite society' thing before
mircea_popescu: the current foundation is an embarassing shell, nothing but obligaitons for them so they're trying to shed it.

ascii_field: and much higher than would've cost otherwise.
mircea_popescu: ascii_field it doesn't count unless it's on the pointed end of a stick.
ascii_field: *of having replaced
mircea_popescu: that's the thing all the castrato "experts" with "degrees" fail to grasp. it doesn't matter what "reality" is, may be thought to be, could be inferred etc.

mircea_popescu: they have nothing. this is proof positive that the cia is as worthless as the vassar feminist book club.
mircea_popescu: think about hassling beria in that manner.
ascii_field: kryuchkov had nobody either
ascii_field: had to eat his pistol
ascii_field: same deal.
mircea_popescu: right.
mircea_popescu: and for that matter, beria actually picked up women off the street, raped them for a while and then dropped them off.
