asciilifeform: shinohai: notbad.
shinohai: Will have bot rejoin soon, was making changes to modules and didn't want to spam chan with join/parts.
shinohai: I'm pretty close to having a rehash mechanism so don't have to stop it every time I reload something.
asciilifeform: shinohai: does that bot have any public knobs yet ?
shinohai: Has calc, search via ddg, google, various btc things. Basically trying to put it back like jhvh1 was.
asciilifeform: shinohai: can haz demo ?
asciilifeform: how do i e.g. search ?
shinohai: Sure one sec I'll have it join.
shinohai: ./ddg loperos
btcinfobot: 1. Loper OS
btcinfobot: Note: this the third and final draft of the machine colocation rack costs sheet and service terms. Prices have not changed since the last revision. The service is now live.. Rack space, as described below, is immediately and henceforth available exclusively to my L1 and L2 WoT (presently visible here.)If you, reader, are not in this roster, or not interested in purchasing rack service from me ...
btcinfobot: 2. University of Nebraska - Kearney Athletics - Official ...
btcinfobot: The official athletics website for the University of Nebraska - Kearney Lopers
btcinfobot: 3. Loppers at
btcinfobot: Shop loppers in the hand pruning tools section of Find quality loppers online or in store.
asciilifeform: at least that search not entirely out to sea
asciilifeform: slightly surprised actually.
shinohai: has the old vwap in case needed for handy price ref:
shinohai: ./vwap
btcinfobot: The 24-Hour VWAP for BTC is $ 7567.71 USD
asciilifeform: shinohai: where does ^ come from ?
shinohai: vwap comes from currently until I find something else that worx
asciilifeform: shinohai: oblig-spam : all rk come with sbcl ( just like at piz ) , quite possibly your bot would stand up as-is...
shinohai: Will likely put it there along with www when some of my shitcoin bags sell. BTC kinda in toilet atm.
asciilifeform: shinohai: 1btc presently buys 31+ years of rk service, lol. but entirely up to you.
shinohai: Smashing deal!
asciilifeform: ftr, asciilifeform does not suffer delusions of godhood, sells machines 1y at a time strictly.
asciilifeform: but fact remains.
asciilifeform: ( 1y max, that is, at a time. month also of course avail. see manual . )
shinohai: Will you be bringing phuctor back to life there soon?
asciilifeform: shinohai: i expect to shortly after uy trip
shinohai: Neato.
asciilifeform: shinohai: i've many interesting things lined up. incl. for phuctor. such as e.g. previously-unmolested classes of weak key .
asciilifeform: ^ will need moar cpu than in 1 box, and i expect -- the double tower, tho. but some -- simply new coad.
asciilifeform: shinohai: there's quite a bit that can be done when you have cheap mains current, cooling, bandwidth .
asciilifeform: ... and not stuck with off-the-shelf irons
shinohai: Monday there was internet blackout in entire city and surrounding area here - Comcast has monopoly on pipe here.
asciilifeform: ( and esp.! if you know what yer doing ! )
snsabot: (trilema) 2017-02-18 asciilifeform: (iirc we had a thread where i described how corporate ameritards, if given a problem like phuctor, would happily soak up a few $mil and megawatt of iron)
asciilifeform: shinohai: here, duopoly. 'comcast' and 'verizon'. for residential net, that is.
shinohai: I don't bother with the 4G meme, don't even presently own "smartphone"
superkuh: shinohai++
asciilifeform: shinohai: lol, wasn't even counting ~those~, imho if you can't host sumthing on it, it aint a net pipe properly speaking
asciilifeform: wb superkuh
asciilifeform: superkuh: ever tried 'tempest'-style experiments with those wideband cones of yours ? seems to me that they're exactly Right Thing for picking up e.g. cpu from across street.
shinohai: Heya superkuh, glad you stopped in chan here. Your blog is one of the more interesting things I have read in long time. (I intend to dig deeper as time permits)
superkuh: asciilifeform, not in the decoding sense but it's easy to see in the total power spectrograms when certain neighbors are home, or, well, when my GPU is active. It radiates quite a bit.
asciilifeform: superkuh: 'when home' for many folx can be seen even w/ off-the-shelf 802.11 box, aha
asciilifeform: iirc even garden-variety burglars know this these days.
asciilifeform: shinohai: i added your bot to the bot list in config, it properly colours nao.
asciilifeform: ( on my log www, that is. can't speak for other folx. )
shinohai: Oh neat asciilifeform .. thx ^.^
asciilifeform loox fwd to reading, signing, genesis of shinohai's bot
asciilifeform: shinohai: if you do it soon enuff, it'll be, afaik, the very 1st publication of a properly-working (i.e. w/out the oddball disconnect bugs) cl irc bot
shinohai: This thing has been on workbench since before exit from #t. I also played with idea of Ada irc bot, couldn't find suitable alternative to Gnat.sockets
asciilifeform: shinohai: i never wrote a proper ada shim for tcp, as i had for udp , never saw a compelling reason. possibly will make one tho, there are potential uses, such as bots.
asciilifeform: gnat.sockets is 100% rubbish.
asciilifeform: iirc the bulk of it is liquishit for handling winblowz's notion of ip stack
asciilifeform: shinohai: 'finding' ada libs is imho 100% lost cause. if you need one, must write.
asciilifeform: there's ~0 usable material published in heathendom for subj.
asciilifeform: ( admittedly this is not far different from the situation in re other langs )
asciilifeform: w/ ada esp. stands out to naked eye tho -- it is ~possible~ to write civilized ada ; while 100% of c is rubbish at-birth
asciilifeform spent quite long time, prior to writing ffa, looking for 'bignum lib' that 'oughta exist, surely, somewhere'. 100% barf .
shinohai: This was lone irc lib I was able to locate:
asciilifeform: lol on gnat.sockets of course
asciilifeform: with Ada.Strings.Unbounded; << heh
asciilifeform: shinohai: re adaism , i have a kilometre of ffa material in backlog also ( keccak; integration of bvt's asmisms ; cookbooks for rsa & cs key gen ; standalone util. form ; mips port ; others. )
shinohai: I am definitely looking forward to rsa keygen. (mips port also sounds quite interesting)
asciilifeform: shinohai: mips port so can run on e.g. 'ice40' .
shinohai: I acquired ice40, but have done only minimal verilog things with it. My sole experience with mips was getting gentoo to work w/ edgerouterlite
asciilifeform: there's actually nuffin 'machine-married' in ffa as it stands. but for practical use on battery-powered toys needs proper asmisms.
asciilifeform: sadly 'ice40' is an order of magnitude too small to actually unroll an iron multiplier inside.
asciilifeform: ( which would eliminate need for von neumann ffa as it was )
shinohai: While asciilifeform is here, I meant to ask - have you ever used/done anything with ATmega1284P chips?
asciilifeform: shinohai: i picked mips for e.g. 'M' strictly because simplest traditional arch w/ existing compiler support.
shinohai: (Think I was discussing this with mats a while back)
asciilifeform: shinohai: have -- looong ago
asciilifeform: not 100% sure it was ~that~ atmega, possib. earlier one
asciilifeform: shinohai: crypto (other than e.g. otp) on 8bit micros is a pain tho
asciilifeform: shinohai: i wrote (but not published, it was ~useless) a demo rsa for 6502. you wouldn't want to use.
asciilifeform: 'geological' runtimes.
shinohai: aha I played around loooong time ago with assembly on 6502 for commodore
asciilifeform: commodore ( i also grew up w/ 1 ) rly 6510 but same instr set ( had added i/o port thing, which is how you could bank ram )
asciilifeform quite fond of the 6502 instr set
asciilifeform: didja know that the orig manuf. of 6502 is still in biz ?
asciilifeform bought, coupla yrs ago, samples. they work.
asciilifeform: there's a whole hidden 'world' of 'unsexy' industrial equip. that still runs on 6502, z80, similar.
asciilifeform: valuable not the least because '0 microshit or unix inside'
asciilifeform: iirc e.g. 'toyota' until recently z80 for engine control.
asciilifeform: ru weapons systems , last knew, 100% on pdp11/vax singlechip clones to this day.
asciilifeform: ( subj, for the curious. )
snsabot: (trilema) 2019-04-23 asciilifeform: here we go : 1801 schematics ; 1801 manual vol.1 1801 manual vol.2 .
shinohai: ./uptime
btcinfobot: The bot has been up for 18h 39min 14s.
