verisimilitude: My Meta-Machine Code is a structure editor of a sorts. All programming should be done in a human mind first, and in such tools second.
dulapbot: Logged on 2022-01-25 15:53:17 asciilifeform: structure editors would be a++ even for folx w/ working hands..
verisimilitude: It also has the nice quality of heavily reducing the typing required for such hacking.
mats: << no, theres a separate ladder for income tax now, since iirc trump tax cut and jerbs act
dulapbot: Logged on 2022-01-25 18:03:57 billymg: and what mats mentioned here i believe is based on your total income for that year. e.g. if you make $50k salary and then sell some asset for a profit you're already in that "kicks in at 40k" range
mats: nvm, i went to double check, think i misread something a while back
mats: "The tax rate on most net capital gain is no higher than 15% for most individuals. Some or all net capital gain may be taxed at 0% if your taxable income is less than or equal to $40,400 for single or $80,800 for married filing jointly ... A capital gain rate of 15% applies if your taxable income is more than $40,400 but less than or equal to $445,850 for single"
mats: there is a separate ladder but it didn't work the way i thought it does
mats: cap gains tax treatment is still hella good compared to the fed income ladder, which is 35% up to 520k
mats: and the carveout for primary home ownership sale, which protects (250k usd single/500k married) in profit from tax
mats: or the 1031 exchange, which lets homeowners sell their (nonprimary, investment) home, buy another, and pay no capital gains tax. but i digress
vex: that sounds not too bad mats.
vex: compared to oz. we're much closer to 50 pc. can sell your primary house & keep profit upto maxint tho
vex: the quoted is kinda vauge tho huh?
vex: this is correct in my book. jonsykkel et all might use puddi

cgra: signpost or whaack have any idea whether the jetbrains/intellij family also have a decent ada variant? (although now that i checked again, the GPS may be fine after all. forgot why i thought previously otherwise)
bitbot: (pest) 2022-01-27 signpost[asciilifeform|billymg]: the refactoring tools are god-tier.
bitbot: (pest) 2022-01-27 whaack[asciilifeform]: but i have paid for jetbrains products before and would happily do it again
dulapbot: Logged on 2022-01-27 15:00:58 asciilifeform: and iirc whaack turned up >6 long reorgs in early history.
dulapbot: Logged on 2020-11-05 12:45:24 asciilifeform: in other noose, 8-block-long reorg earlier today (on .27 ; and the initial attempt to resolve it, in fact caused that noad to OOM)
cgra: re the 'orphan' misnomer, drawing the line between 'losing' and 'loser', instead of 'extinct' and 'resurrected', perhaps worth considering.
dulapbot: Logged on 2022-01-27 14:57:45 whaack: asciilifeform: given our emperical evidence so far i think it's fair to call loser/repudiated blocks extinct blocks, and should we learn that in practice losers can be revived, then that will be a resurrection
dulapbot: Logged on 2022-01-27 14:59:50 asciilifeform: ( the well-known tradition is 'declared dead after 6' but there's no fundamental physical basis for it )
cgra: coupla examples: losing/loser, 'losing' until declared 'loser'. how about the chain that recovers after initial losing position, a 'runner-up'?
cgra: dying/dead, 'dying' until declared 'dead'/'extinct', then a 'recoverer'/'recovering chain'?
cgra: then there's that, say, the node operator had a knob to decide how long a lead declares the losers/the winner. then the operator found out he had underestimated realistic reorg length and wants to adjust: now a previously declared 'loser' and the old 'winner' are swapped. i kinda feel the term 'resurrected' fits this scenario better, but prolly someone better in english can find a fitting 'sports term' here, too
cgra: * 'fits this scenario better' --> 'fits this scenario well'
