tg2: 2.8.8 lynx
tg2: I believe that's current
kanzure: phantomjs is actually using an ancient version of webkit
kanzure: i highly recommend using recent webkit and just use the gobject bindings
kanzure: for example: https://gist.github.com/kanzure/6581415
kanzure: (context: i've contributed to phantomjs)
tg2: Can it be run without x?

MisterE: Breaking news on the missing plane, still nothing found...
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [PETA] 2 @ 0.069898 = 0.1398 BTC [-]
kanzure: tg2: technically no, webkigtk+ requires X unless you find a way to get gtk running without x.. there used to be a way with cairo but nobody seems to care anymore.
kanzure: tg2: however, running X headlessly is not hugely problematic these days because of xserver-xorg-video-dummy
kanzure: tg2: and i would say the advantages of running modern webkit far outweigh the troubles with running X... you get Function.prototype.bind :)
kanzure: even when phantomjs2 comes out in the next few months i would recommend caution because the dependency on qtwebki from a qt release means that you're waiting multiple months for bugfixes to get into phantomjs (so far webkit updates are so far behind it's sad)
kanzure: e.g. it's not just qtwebkit but it's a qt-release that includes a release of qtwebkit which includes a release of webkit. but the real thing you care about is webkit!

decimation: take 2: According to him:the "long-term right approach is not to deal with these situations as one-off?s but to have a systematic approach to compensation that makes it very difficult for anyone to get a better offer"

mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves well he's mastered them so...
asciilifeform: anyone else notice how you more or less can't buy antifuse roms any more?
asciilifeform: just flash that programmatically refuses (or promises to refuse) writing a second time
dignork: asciilifeform, there are OTP chips, you're saying they can be rewritten?
mircea_popescu: dude what's with all this derpage. avatrade ? future of crypto trading ? what the hell.
asciilifeform: dignork: i can't promise to re-write one on demand - but they're 'flash' inside.
asciilifeform: dignork: notice that the same part number typically comes in a UV window version.
asciilifeform: now go and try to buy a 1980s style antifuse ROM that actually burns

dignork: asciilifeform, I never actually looked into these chips, but wikipedia says empty PROM is filled with 1's, and you're irreversibly burning 0's
asciilifeform: yes
dignork: asciilifeform, so later you can burn some more 0'...
asciilifeform: now try to buy one.
mircea_popescu: dignork it'd be an extremely rare case where that actually works tho
asciilifeform: incidentally, this reminds me of a scheme i came up with for re-writing 'cd-r' disks, before the rewritable kind was available
asciilifeform: using 'gray code'. alert reader can probably figure out how it worked.
asciilifeform: how many 'brain cycles' we've all wasted on obsolete tech!
mircea_popescu: "I stumbled upon this brilliant piece of journalism written by one “Mircea Popescu”. The title of the article reads “Why Dogecoin is a scam…” and the contents are amusing."
mircea_popescu: at least we're using the brain cycles on things that actually exist.
mircea_popescu: how many brain cycles have various anon derps wasted on rehashing their imaginary worlds ?
asciilifeform: the folks who understand their worlds being imaginary, i've no problem with.
dignork: asciilifeform, well, I have this http://www.nordicsemi.com/eng/Products/2.4GHz-RF/nRF24LE1-OTP on hand, but I don't have equipment to actually look at the chip structure though :(
mircea_popescu: well the others you really can't have a problem with. because who'd you have a problem with ? they're not here.
mircea_popescu: o look at that, fico lost!

ThickAsThieves: <mircea_popescu> so apparently lmb gifted itself a hefty 28% equity stake post-ipo /// To my knowledge LMB never gifted itself anything nor moved shares to Havelock
ThickAsThieves: there was a portion seperately allocated for employee program of some sort I think, not tradable
mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves well, here's the problem :
mircea_popescu: Public investors currently hold 5,042,638 LMB Holdings shares (31.5164875% of the profits), whilst LMB Subsidiaries Limited (UK) shall hold 10,957,362 shares 68.4835125% of the profits), for a total of 16,000,000 LMB Holdings virtual shares, which represent 100% of the global profits of the LMB Subsidiaries Limited (UK).
mircea_popescu: this is an update of the previous version, which read :
mircea_popescu: Public investors will hold 9,600,000 LMB Holdings shares (60% of the profits), whilst LMB Subsidiaries Limited (UK) shall hold 6,400,000 shares (40% of the profits), for a total of 16,000,000 LMB Holdings virtual shares, which represent 100% of the global profits of the LMB Subsidiaries Limited (UK).
ThickAsThieves: basically the unsold shares sat unsold afaik
mircea_popescu: the net effect of this change is for lmb to gift itself a significant portion of the equity.
ThickAsThieves: only the 31% wouldve been eligible for the initial divs
mircea_popescu: the figures seem to be 68.4x% and 40%.

mircea_popescu: the ratio between people willing to buy to support it and people needing to sell to pay for their mining is better.
MisterE: stamp testing 440 so not feeling too bad about it ;)

kakobrekla: labcoin was not a naive thing
BCB: benkay, I don't read him all all but he is all over the place
kakobrekla: nor was pirate
mircea_popescu: people are slow to learn this lesson, especially because otherwise good guys with a diploma imagine retarded shit a la "everyone is entitled to their own opinion" and eschew sucking their cocks.
kakobrekla: active i dunno.
benkay: BCB: all over where? i'm pretty well read and he doesn't even register on my feeds.
BCB: mircea_popescu, what about jon matonis
mircea_popescu: there's this philosophy of "do everything by yourself" prevalent in the us, and it is getting people in trouble in bitcoin space something fierce.
kakobrekla: what about roger ver
BCB: kakobrekla, criminal
mircea_popescu: BCB im not about to discuss individuals unless i have something specific to say.
BCB: mircea_popescu, shocking. I guess I should MOP PR
BCB: *ask
mircea_popescu: kakobrekla i dunno, re pirate say, i believe people like copumpkin were moreover clueless and well meaning in their dysfunctional, social-justice-y sort of way
kakobrekla: you meant MOB PR?
mircea_popescu: rather than outright criminal.
mircea_popescu: BCB she's worse in that respect. by the time she's calling out your name you're going down.
BCB: mircea_popescu, the pirate victims were just greedy
BCB: blinded by greed

BCB: mircea_popescu, what about the bitcoin foundation
benkay: uuaghuaghuaa
benkay: mircea_popescu: must be my broken american brainz
benkay: (Diablo-D3: graiiinz)
BCB: has anyone read the new o'reiley bitcoin book?
Diablo-D3: benkay: hee
mircea_popescu: BCB teh scamdation has collected btc donations, failed to release reports and then collected more btc "donations" from various scams it vouched for.
kakobrekla: BCB the questions you are asking re people and stuff have mostly been talked about. search around the logs and blogs, this is not a spoonfeeding party
mircea_popescu: pretty much the best way to ensure you won't get anywhere in bitcoin is to involve yourself with the bitcoin foundation.
BCB: kakobrekla, I'm bored. Sorry
mircea_popescu: it's roughly speaking the nambla of this space.
kakobrekla: North American Man/Boy Love Association ?
mircea_popescu: the same
BCB: kakobrekla, I'm writing a bash implementation of a blockchain parser and I needed to take a break

novusordo: some OTCers made a channel for it, don't remember what it was
AccountantPierre: benkay: that quickly gets into a semantic debate of what fiduciary media is. I don't view off-blockchain transactions with coinbase-bux to be fiduciary media. You'd have to create something I can send to a bitcoin address and the recipient thinks its bitcoins. Nigh impossible indeed
mircea_popescu: i vaguely recall the monopoly btc thing
benkay: that's a neat position on fidiuciary media.

mircea_popescu: o yeah, check this out, a match made in heaven.
mircea_popescu: AccountantPierre what'd you need to be paid to audit the20year2's rental properties corp ?
mircea_popescu: novusordo are those two still together ?
novusordo: not a clue
mircea_popescu: stormy was pretty hot. aethero was... pretty strange.
AccountantPierre: a real audit or just some specific due diligence procedures?
mircea_popescu: a real audit.
mircea_popescu: certify his book.
AccountantPierre: estimated amount of assets? visiting properties could get expensive, where are they?
nubbins`: aethero was just mentioned in -otc
mircea_popescu: all in ohio.
nubbins`: regarding ops that went bad
the20year2: ~$500k of assets including bitcoin
the20year2: 6 properties, central Ohio , although i don't know if physical inspection would be absolutely needed when you could just get deed copies
mircea_popescu: AccountantPierre afaik it's not customary to do a ground inspection if torrens title is available neh ?
mircea_popescu: o wait, the us doesn't use torrens
the20year2: We file deeds at the county auditor
mircea_popescu is pretty well clueless as to real estate auditing procedures adequate for central ohio
AccountantPierre: depends on risk assessment at beginning of audit
the20year2: I'm not aware of any state that uses torrens, though canada I believe does
the20year2: What kind of risk assessment?
mircea_popescu: the20year2 well if the auditor suspects fraud or under some court mandates etc.
AccountantPierre: risk of material misstatement of the financials. $25k for a one man cpa shop.
the20year2: Ouch
mircea_popescu: AccountantPierre for my own repository of factoids, what's the insurance premium hike look like after a forfeit for material misstatement ?
AccountantPierre: Insurance for the CPA firm or for the audit client? Either way, no clue, never dealt with that kind of insurance
mircea_popescu: the insurane firm
the20year2: I wasn't aware they sold insurance to CPAs
mircea_popescu: uh, you're not insured ?!
mircea_popescu: whoa ?!
the20year2: I'm not a CPA
AccountantPierre: there are thousands of people at my firm, division of labor, someone else takes care of that

mircea_popescu: aha.
BCB: mircea_popescu, I could reccomend a cpa for around 10K for a full audit
mircea_popescu: kinda besides the point now isn't it.
the20year2: When we were looking for book audits for a TSX listing possibility they ran $15k/yr
the20year2: Of course $25k might not be terribly bad if you're sending a guy to Ohio to physically visit properties and review deed copies
benkay: kinda one of those things you expect a REIT to be able to afford.
BCB: novusordo, what ever happened to aethero, anyone know?
the20year2: Not for one with only 6 properties and less than $500k of properties, that's 5% a year in just audits
BCB: mircea_popescu, hire a certified CPA in ohio
the20year2: Would make alot more sense to just hire a 3rd party agent or title company to do the investigation, hire a title search on all the properties, will run you $75/ea
AccountantPierre: Yeah, hire a local guy, not a big 4 firm based out of nyc
benkay: doesn't really sound like a REIT at that scale. more like a hodgepodge.
the20year2: $150-$200 for lawyer review
mircea_popescu: BCB he tried to start some sort of business, listed it on btct if memory serves, and well... just like all the others.

tg2: I kindly direct you to benkay
mircea_popescu: "If you continue to post in the thread you will be reported to theymos who could take further action. You have already been asked to stop posting."

mircea_popescu: this is like usagi level of internet threatening
nubbins`: STOP OR I WILL TELL TUPPERWARE I MEAN THERMOS
benkay: don't forget to burp the thermos
mircea_popescu: "My father emotionally, physically and sexually abused me. I moved out at the age of seventeen, hoping to escape all the pain, only to find out that it would follow me. My psyche and boundaries were very damaged and I did not realize that because of my upbringing and appearance I attracted sexual predators.
mircea_popescu: After marrying at age twenty-one, I discovered my husband was a porn addict. So great was his sexual perversity and infidelity that I was at a loss to know what to do to save my marriage. Finally, after five years of marriage, I sought counseling from my church pastor."
tg2: Crisse que les français sont des bébés lala

tg2: Rape magnet

mircea_popescu: guy with 600 followers and already following 2001 people somehow gets 800 retweets
nubbins`: "Alison Myrden of Burlington, Ont., says it costs just pennies for her designated grower to produce the more than 100 grams of marijuana she needs each day to relieve symptoms of multiple sclerosis and trigeminal neuralgia, a disorder of the nervous system that causes especially intense discomfort."
mircea_popescu: yet i've never heard of the post.
nubbins`: she ingests ONE HUNDRED GRAMS of marijuana.
nubbins`: A DAY.
mircea_popescu: could we be at the point where people actually buy fake/spam retweets to try and prop themselves into the conversation ?
nubbins`: that's a gram every ten minutes
mircea_popescu: nubbins` well if she eats it...
nubbins`: even worse
nubbins`: eating 100g in a day? you might as well induce a coma
nubbins`: seriously, get a daily smoker to eat two grams and they'll spend the next ten hours seriously reconsidering their choice
nubbins`: i can only hope she makes a tincture or something
mircea_popescu: so she's selling it you're thinking ?
peterl: maybe she means she needs a few pennies for 100 milligrams?
peterl: units, how do they work?
jurov: don't they measure hash in libraries of congress or sth?
mircea_popescu: yeah i doubt very much it costs a quarter per pound to make weed.
mircea_popescu: peterl prolly has it.
nubbins`: no, i don't think she's selling, it'd be too brazen. she wouldn't agree to be interviewed
nubbins`: no doubt she boils it up to make tea or some such
nubbins`: i just can't comprehend what wasteful method of preparation causes this poor woman to have to go through over a quarter pound every day of her life
peterl: maybe she just burns it as incense instead of smoking it?
nubbins`: i honestly have no idea
nubbins`: maybe her MS really is just that intense
nubbins`: i've seen people with MS who seize so bad that they can't even communicate
jurov: i think she bathes in it
nubbins`: few puffs and they can function normally
nubbins`: it's actually fucked
mircea_popescu: maybe she feeds it to her cats and then rubs them ?
nubbins`: heh.
nubbins`: animal abuse!
jurov: civet coffee comes to mind
jurov: perish the thought
nubbins`: civet coffee doesn't even taste particularly good
nubbins`: i've seen pictures of freshly-shat civet coffee covered in intestinal worms
nubbins`: protip: coffee isn't magic, you're not guaranteed a good cup just because it came from location X or was processed via method Y

pankkake: sounds dirty
nubbins`: yup
Duffer1: you woud be too if you held a large stake in actm
nubbins`: plainly obvious at this point that the guy isn't going to be contacting anyone. ever.
nubbins`: if he was going to, he'd do it, rather than flapping his gums trying to scare a confession out of you
pankkake: well since he is talking about antitrust, yes - doesn't need to be a lawyer to see how offtopic it is
pankkake: but yes, typical harassment
pankkake: as long as he harasses only me… I'm ok with it

mircea_popescu: this officially beats the "bitbet followed its faq how dares it!!11" thing
pankkake: many people in common… which is kinda strange, they still had coins, and still investemed them?!
mircea_popescu: pankkake well considering how much effort they put into "outing" imaginary shills, socks etc,
mircea_popescu: and all the nonsense about autorite de la concurrence
mircea_popescu: i would imagine they're just butthurt at what they imagine is unfair competition. ie, they were shilling for a bunch of scams, the scams went nowhere.
pankkake: and they ignored the stuff I found about ken's past get rich quick businesses :(
mircea_popescu: you must have been doing the same thing, they figure, and also for some scams (they figure, cause nothing else exists in the world)
mircea_popescu: consequently, you... um... you took their jerbs
mircea_popescu: so no, they never invested anything. they had hopes of being paid by the scammors. which they're not getting.
Duffer1: i think stuart is a genuine bagholder, i think minerpart is one of the slaughter family, i think that coindesk guy is a scammer
mircea_popescu: you may be right.
