asciilifeform loox, tx unmined still after 12+h
asciilifeform set up tripod for photos, but light apparently dead, will have to wait for daylight.
thimbronion: fwiw asciilifeform just wanted to say thanks for the Englebart's Violin post. Saved my hands.
spyked: <-- I'll confess I've no idea where this and the circular firing squad thing come from. nor do I fully understand what happened there, but just to clear this up, I have no bullets for asciilifeform
ossabot: Logged on 2019-10-30 20:02:48 asciilifeform: i dun expect, lobbes , that mp will have much patience for folx who go to 'poison well' to get some moar 'poisoned', trade-with-enemy.
ossabot: (trilema) 2019-10-30 asciilifeform: diana_coman: my observation is that mp_en_viaje set up ~circular~ firing squad, that is sure to continue after asciilifeform properly drummed out.
asciilifeform: spyked: read last 2 articles on mp's site: he 'explains'.
asciilifeform: << interesting -- how ?

asciilifeform: spyked: the 'clef' to that 'roman a clef' is imho pretty simple. mp ate at asciilifeform's technological table for 7+y w/out paying in anyffin but insults (i dun particularly care re the insults, imho it is how proper male conversation worx.) this had to stop eventually, as it meshed poorly w/ mp's 'self image' as 'god emperor'. last straw was when asciilifeform, after failure of piz, built new isp, with the orig bug that kille
asciilifeform: d it -- mp's financial tentacles -- fixed. this was last straw, nao mp will write 3 kilometres of 'asciilifeform is untermensch and traitor'.
diana_coman: back to republic without mp, I see.
asciilifeform: ohai diana_coman
asciilifeform: diana_coman: i can't resist to ask, whatcha doing in this dark hole bereft of the life-giving light of mp ?
diana_coman: dunno of what hole you are talking so how could I answer that.
asciilifeform: #a.
diana_coman: asciilifeform: allow me to point out to you that you can always kick me out as it's your chan.
diana_coman: I still don't see the hole you describe.
asciilifeform: diana_coman: yer witnessing a test of mp's orig hypothesis, 'star topology is retarded.' imho a healthy republic can work just as well where there is no mp, and where there is no asciilifeform .
asciilifeform: and ftr diana_coman is welcome here. i find diana_coman's work to be interesting and useful. was curious re what diana_coman finds here, to be of interest.
asciilifeform: i ask because i read mp's kilometre of flame, and got impression that he sees asciilifeform as a creature of the devil, something like an animated and malevolent talking sofa. if you buy this, why not yet ran for the hills ? i wouldn't sit in a carnivorous sofa.
diana_coman: asciilifeform: thank you for the kind words re my work; I don't yet know what I'll find here.
diana_coman: lolz, no, that's not what he says
asciilifeform: diana_coman: is there a sekrit appendix to that last piece that diana_coman read and asciilifeform has not ? cuz imho was pretty clear.
diana_coman: fwiw and as previously stated in #t quite publicly at that, I still find for instance FFA just as before: a gem (or a pearl, perhaps that's the subtle clarification)
ossabot: (trilema) 2019-10-30 diana_coman: mp_en_viaje: I suppose there is also the same question applied potentially to the FG and FFA then; but fwiw I digested FFA as well as I could and I still think it is a gem, perhaps a pearl better put: quite the result of successive spinnings/polishings
asciilifeform: diana_coman: then yer in the right place; all ffaism q&a w/ asciilifeform henceforth will take place here.
asciilifeform: for readers : diana_coman, incidentally is the only, to date, fully diploma'd grad of ffa.
diana_coman: asciilifeform: there's no secret appendix but there is a certain perspective that I'm not sure you can/ever want to perceive; fwiw and for myself really, I'm drafting precisely my thoughts on this but I don't suspect they'll help you any and I don't have any pill for that.
asciilifeform: diana_coman: i'ma read yours (and errybody's) 'here's what i thought all along' output, imho is fascinating.
diana_coman: the all along is your addition.
asciilifeform: it is. there's imho nuffin like a good 'gloves off' flame.
asciilifeform: prolly i'd've dropped off the net long ago if it weren't for these.
diana_coman: except don't add words in other peoples' mouths if you want their as opposed to your self-made flame or whatever it might be.
asciilifeform: diana_coman: i dun see how this read required 'add words', the words plainly spoken already .
snsabot: (trilema) 2019-10-30 mp_en_viaje: i don't think it's intentional, in the sense that i don't think alf has the capacity for intentional activity. he's an object, like any chair, or compass, or whatever.
diana_coman: asciilifeform: you jumped.
diana_coman will go back to her draft.
asciilifeform: i'ma read.
asciilifeform will also bbl, has tall pile of work today.
asciilifeform ftr misread as 'addiction'
snsabot: Logged on 2019-10-31 14:27:41 diana_coman: the all along is your addition.
asciilifeform genuinely bbl
thimbronion: << At the time I read it, I was painfully slamming away on a "Microsoft Natural Keyboard." I then switched to mechanical, then switched to programmable mechanical. Now typing however many years later pain free.

asciilifeform: thimbronion: neato.
asciilifeform: thimbronion: what kbd, and what didja program it to do ?
thimbronion: asciilifeform: Other than rearranging enter/backspace to be thumb keys, tap for f/j, hold for ctrl, similar for shift. Huge reduction in pinky stretching.
asciilifeform: thimbronion: good for you. we only come w/ 1 pair of hands, best not to waste it.
