asciilifeform: unless you are doing something exotic
mircea_popescu: "does this shit even work" was, for the record, a very general inquiry.
mircea_popescu: the answer is reallynot.
ben_vulpes: and in the general case, no.
mircea_popescu: fancy that it'd split one word but not the other, also. what a spicy adventure.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i still dunno how you figure someone ELSE is going to implement this thing for you, but anyway.
asciilifeform: nah i don't expect anybody to implement it.
asciilifeform: i may or may not get around to it.
mircea_popescu: for one thing it doesn't even seem it can be over web. it'll have to be actual files sftp'd or something.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: nobody split your word!
asciilifeform: you're seeing word boundaries
asciilifeform: as in machine word
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform that's whatg i mean.
asciilifeform: use -C plox
mircea_popescu: it just so happened that the boundary split the 0a from the 0d in the 2nd case but not in the first, so as to appear matching what i put in there.
mircea_popescu: this was one of 4 possible rolls of that dice.
asciilifeform: put more - or fewer - letters, you'll see different split
mircea_popescu: of course.
asciilifeform: it is artifact of your byte count
mircea_popescu: still, 1:4 odds for it to fall this way.
asciilifeform: nothing to do with what happened over the net. it is dirt on your lens.

mircea_popescu: "UNOPPOSED MOTION FOR PARTIAL UNSEALING" seems successful enough
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: but in a very laughable sense where we DON'T learn the identity of the victim OR anything pertinent re: why he was picked
asciilifeform: so they unsealed... what? a portion of the boilerplate...
asciilifeform: this is usg's way of laughing
mircea_popescu: i have no fucking idea why the victims actually go along with this charade.
mircea_popescu: oh, you got a gag order ? ha-ha. heres' the website with the material published.
asciilifeform: vs what? take a pen and poke a policeman ?
mircea_popescu: watchagonnado.
asciilifeform: 20 yrs to life ?
mircea_popescu: yarly ?
asciilifeform: (ianal)
mircea_popescu: "the hackers stole it"
asciilifeform: stole a snail mail ?
mircea_popescu: why snail mail specifically ?
mircea_popescu: "i was keeping backups in the cloud".
asciilifeform: iirc these are typically delivered as snail mail, victim signs for package
mircea_popescu: these whats ?
