dulapbot: Logged on 2021-07-26 17:26:54 asciilifeform: the fundamental problem with 'duct tape and chewing gum' ciphermachines, is that it is very, very easy to fool yourself into thinking that you've achieved something, when in fact you have led yourself and -- worse, possibly people with actual secrets to protect -- to the chopping block, by putting same linux+opensores liquishitware into pocket-sized vaguely-ciphermachine-like package.
asciilifeform: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/asciilifeform/2021-08-08#1050748 << there's a very analogous community of fucktards who have similarly totem relationship w/ 'flea as in fleadom! opensores!!!' computer

asciilifeform: if 'made of lego' i.e. other-people's-shitware-opensores -- then you get laffs like the linked 'oh but this is a barcode polyglot, and machine will try to read it as xyz, haha' and similar
dulapbot: Logged on 2021-05-29 15:52:24 asciilifeform: imho more or less standard 'good cop / bad cop' theatre; objective was from the start to corral all remaining ircism (in particular as pertains to opensores) in a properly usg.managed shithole. (ye olde fleanode, evidently, was still too heterogeneous and difficult to properly sjw-police.)
punkman: (kinda doing the rounds on my old open sores hardware bookmarks)
asciilifeform still, nearly 5y after FG release, and 7+y since started serious work on rngs, entertained by the studious avoidance of the 'open sores' types of the approaches which actually work and don't require 8cores of GHz cpu running GBs of whatever braindamage

asciilifeform: these, together, add up to 99+% of opensores.

snsabot: Logged on 2021-02-22 17:17:28 asciilifeform: all of this discussion is applicable not merely to opensores licensism, but to whole concept of contractual agreements between unequal parties, and the nonsensical (yet very popular, and well-pushed) notion that the weaker can somehow ding the stronger via 'rule of law' in the workings of a supposed neutral judiciary

asciilifeform: trinque: imho folx oughta, as matter of course, discuss what exactly they're agreeing to , sign it, etc. the ritual incantations of opensoresdom is sumthing entirely, imho, else, tho.
asciilifeform: 'opensores' w/out fits-in-head is a demented concept of 'freedom'. like yer 'freedom' to jet fart through your arse and fly across atlantic. ('no one glued you to the ground! you have this freedom!')
asciilifeform: turns out, 'risc-v' aint actually available in any standalone device. is -- a la 'opensparc' -- simply verilog turd, 'opensores for all', and 100% descriptive of ~none~
asciilifeform: gregorynyssa: it's exactly same bind as for other opensores products.
asciilifeform: asciilifeform, for instance, at one point blamed strictly the commercial softs world for e.g. 'automation is unnecessarily difficult to achieve'. whereas today is patently laughable, the opensores folx followed exactly same trajectory w/out any appreciable 'top-down' pressure
asciilifeform: ( de-facto aslr serves as a kind of 'nsa curtain' on the overflow etc liquishit which abounds in opensoresdom, which 'dun need to be fixed cuz aslr' except then when usg attacker suddenly no aslr , typical pattern )
asciilifeform: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/asciilifeform/2020-08-08#1018402 << afaik there aint one. just 1 of 'over 9000' basic tools that simply dun exist because opensorestards, by and large, sum to ~0
asciilifeform: verisimilitude: c/unix were built 'off hours' by folx for ~own use~ and then transformed, by force of accident, into 'standard'. similarly to much later opensores crapola.
asciilifeform: ( there are ~other~ problems -- someone actually has to write the standard, which is generally not a thing that opensores derps 'in spare time' are capable of being productively involved in to any degree. and the 'someone' has to also not be malicious idiot who permits 'undefined behaviours' for other idiots to later rely on )
gregorynyssa: among other things, the "open sores" culture leads to proliferation of "implementation definedness" rather than attention to formats and protocols.
asciilifeform: ~nobody luvvs closed shitware, but peculiarly it had a stabilizing effect on opensores at low level.
asciilifeform: however, in immediate term, would also be useful as a linux script lang that doesn't weigh a gigatonne and require 20GB of opensores liquishit simply to build.
asciilifeform: the little src present, all builds strictly on winblowz; but this is not surprise in light of the 2010s faux-opensores intel bios pubs.
asciilifeform: fwiw asciilifeform played w/ gnat for >year (and incl. disasming the output to see how actually compiles) before recommending it to others. it was hands-down best looking horse in the opensores glue factory (and imho still is.)
asciilifeform: adlai: afaik they have 'free private' for 1GB nao, or sumthing. i still dun see the appeal of shithub tho. ( i put some garbage there ~decade ago, back when thought 'opensores! folx will contribute patches!' etc )
asciilifeform: open ('opensores') toolchain, unlike xilinx's
asciilifeform: if yer doing serious numerics, expect to write own stack eventually, the opensores crud is typically good for nuffin in particular
Apocalyptic: I was using opensores makefiles as is found in the gmp-ecm repo
snsabot: Logged on 2020-04-11 10:36:53 asciilifeform: also baking a massive historic opensores tarball mirror, consisting of ~errything from /usr/portage/distfiles from a number of boxen

amberglint: asciilifeform: I think you might find this amusing, someone famous in the open sores community wants to build "trustable hardware": https://www.bunniestudios.com/blog/?p=5706
asciilifeform: not half as itchy as before threw out 'open sores philosophy' outta head, for instance.
