jfw: hbd asciilifeform.
jfw: http://logs.ossasepia.com/log/asciilifeform/2019-12-04#1003110 - through about chapter 10 iirc
ossabot: Logged on 2019-12-04 00:46:06 asciilifeform: has been reading jfw's proggy. e.g. this is pretty interesting -- apparently fella not only read ffa series ( how far didja read, jfw ? ) but in fact did sumthing constructive !
jfw: http://logs.ossasepia.com/log/asciilifeform/2019-12-04#1003151 - thank you sir, and crib away... just not quite sure what you're referring to, the use of LUT for (x+1)%5 or whatever it was?
ossabot: Logged on 2019-12-04 14:23:25 asciilifeform: shinohai: fella in fact found an algebraic simplification for the thing, i gotta take off hat
asciilifeform: jfw: that, and the table unrolls
asciilifeform: jfw: fast modular reduction -- in ch14 .
shinohai: ./seen asciilifeform
btcinfobot: asciilifeform was last seen 6h 47min 17s ago in #asciilifeform saying "jfw: fast modular reduction -- in ch14 ."
asciilifeform: !q uptime
snsabot: asciilifeform: time since my last reconnect : 32d 0h 15m
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: is there a delish qntra piece in the works ?
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: It's baking
BingoBoingo: Working out the mechanics of how the lul in question works
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: pm asciilifeform if you end up stumped, will help.

asciilifeform: !q seen-anywhere zx2c4
snsabot: zx2c4 last seen in #trilema on 2018-11-29 23:54:33: My "nice post" remark wasnt sarcastic, if thats what youre responding to
jfw: asciilifeform: cool, I do look forward to getting back to ffa reading; I might need to make a less crazy schedule happen first.
asciilifeform: jfw: as i understand you have quite a few other things going, having enlisted w/ diana_coman
snsabot: (trilema) 2019-08-01 asciilifeform: dorion: you will have to show your local modification if you want to be 100% certain wtf yer node is doing.
asciilifeform: jfw: but if you do get to ffa i'ma very readily help, dun hesitate to ask q's here & in www comments.
jfw: indeed asciilifeform, ty.
asciilifeform: jfw: just read it in fact. neato. in fact on my conveyor shortly is a proper sweep of my trb collection , ending w/ keccakization of the vtree i personally baked own nodez from.
jfw: Glad to hear it!
diana_coman: asciilifeform: is that v-tree different than the trb one or what do you mean?
asciilifeform: diana_coman: jfw observed, correctly, that there are patches that in fact asciilifeform wrote, but never signed regrind of
asciilifeform: this is disgraceful and to be corrected. but 1st i gotta actually reread the material.
asciilifeform does not know how interesting this output will be to folx on other side of berlin wall from asciilifeform , but gotta do it for ~own~ hygiene, rather than for other folx, primarily
diana_coman: gah, would you stop with the berlin wall and fatwas and whatnots.
asciilifeform: diana_coman: it's not meant as a flame, i've no grudge w/ the folx who distrust.
asciilifeform: if anything, highest compliment to a technologist is when 'hater' still uses $item. like usa cloned kalash.
diana_coman: isn't it easy to just let people make their own mind as it shows through their actions? anyways.
diana_coman: maybe, but note that "hater" is *your* addition, at all times here, this is exactly what I'm saying.
asciilifeform: diana_coman: i indeed took your advice, to avoid 'psychoanalysis' and instead work on tangibles (which in fact found much easier nao that broke addiction to flamefests.)
asciilifeform: diana_coman: above wanted to point out tho, that folx to whom ' asciilifeform signed in 2019 ' dun mean what once did, will have to do own walk of patches etc.
diana_coman: that is anyway a given.
asciilifeform: indeed and imho is the sorta thing folx oughta have been doing at all points. 'liking people' interferes, want or not, w/ properly aggressive treatment of publications.
asciilifeform: for instance : i put a considerable effort, when baked FG , into making provisions for the 'yoke test' mode. but afaik no one ever bothered to attempt it, aside from asciilifeform .
diana_coman: I don't quite think so; laziness surely interferes with signing other people's patches and I expect it interferes with reading more deeply other people's code too.
asciilifeform: diana_coman: imho not only laziness, but in fact rational time logic. folx think 'what is point of wot, if not to avoid bringing into question erry single thing $author did'. time being finite, this is not necessarily wrong.
diana_coman: the part where "read but don't/didn't sign" is starting to get also positively insulting in my books.
asciilifeform: diana_coman: re 'read but not signed' -- i puzzled over this shortly after built 'v', and did not come to satisfactory pill. seems that presently very many folx 'i read , but not Truly Eaten, daren't sign' . i also .
diana_coman: asciilifeform: is that you on eucrypt?
asciilifeform: diana_coman: not only eucrypt ( where at least signed the starting material was made from, if diana_coman recalls ) but dozens of other worx
asciilifeform: imho the ~meaning~ of signing still remains somewhat poorly defined ( folx sign 'with proviso', 'as-found', etc ) but this not having formal structure, encourages dodges
diana_coman: then that Truly Eaten is up there with The Holy Gospel and all that.
diana_coman: and yes, it's possibly precisely one of those things that end up doing more harm than good; and keep people petrified because omg, not All Those Capital Letters Yet.
asciilifeform defo ~not~ fit to 'throw the 1st stone' re 'sign, you bastards, you read, i explained it to you, why not signed', guilty as the rest
asciilifeform: atm afaik diana_coman is the all-time 'read, analyzed, publicly vivisected, signed' champ.
diana_coman: for all the good that does to me, myeah.
asciilifeform: diana_coman: well, it cemented diana_coman's reputation as pedagogue; and nao have an actual school, w/ students. imho this is a win
diana_coman: oh, you mean they came because of my vpatch signs?? I rather doubt it.
asciilifeform: no one dragged the students screaming into the school, they came because read and the methods -- appealed.
diana_coman: anyway, I'm not complaining re my deeds at all; I just wish others would stop being so blocked really.
asciilifeform: it is difficult to argue w/ this.
asciilifeform: diana_coman: (speaking only for self) asciilifeform neither blocked, nor 'quit in disgust', but atm preoccupied w/ 'unsexy' ( believe or not, folx subscribed boxes, and asciilifeform ended up w/ nearly full 'job' setting'em up. ) after this, going back to software. incl. such that other folx may find of interest. in particular would like to incorporate jfw's mathematical wins, into 'peh' .
asciilifeform: supposing he doesn't in fact do the reverse, faster and cleaner. i wouldn't be surprised.
asciilifeform: jfw imho strongest maffs fella to have appeared since apeloyee .
diana_coman: he also has a business to develop.
asciilifeform: diana_coman: in the general case -- i no longer presume to ask other folx to do x,y,z. will instead 'clean own house'.
