asciilifeform back in biz
shinohai waves to asciilifeform o/
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Congrats. How was the return trip?
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: approx as unpleasant as expected. regret to report, the olive oil was stolen
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Damn
asciilifeform: by usg.tsa in panama.
asciilifeform: 'this is >100ml'
BingoBoingo: They didn't give you the option of grabbing a loaf of bread and gorging?
asciilifeform: orig tried to stuff it in the trunks but they all were maxed and shuffle game in hotel did not yield
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: nope, the guard simply pocketed it
asciilifeform: errything else made it to northern shitholistan tho. even the seals i put on the trunks, intact
asciilifeform: riding own auto to airport was a dumb miser move that was paid for in pulled muscles -- rolling 3 23kg chests w/ 2 hands, incl. on and off the bus, while wearing 14kg of sack, was interesting exercise
BingoBoingo: Sounds worse than the initial hotel miser-mistake
asciilifeform: then hour or so to get outta labyrinth and home
asciilifeform: then slept like stone.
asciilifeform: ( why bus ? dulles airport has gigantic parking lot, quite far from terminal, and that's how one gets to/from )
asciilifeform: !q uptime
snsabot: asciilifeform: time since my last reconnect : 5d 18h 42m
asciilifeform: finally got thrown, eh, right as i left
asciilifeform: looks like no missing lns tho (will run the -- currently manual -- tester later today, meanwhile readers plox to lemme know if see any )
asciilifeform: << used an old crate, the paper tape is from aeons ago
snsabot: Logged on 2019-12-17 00:06:42 jfw: asciilifeform: "bones" shipment is in hand, contents check out. The brown paper filament tape under the clear tape was torn, only potential sign of tampering I'm noticing
asciilifeform: << they passed 10sec smoke test but not tested 'burn-in', the practice for the latter was to test assembled units immediately before they went to purchasers .
snsabot: Logged on 2019-12-17 00:16:54 jfw: What's the status of the 'factory tailings' units and the bulk analogue spares - did they pass your usual standard of testing? Only flaw I'm aware of so far is the paint smudge on the one digital board.
asciilifeform: << will be writing a multi-part tour, as jfw did , many interesting pics . we went sumthing like 70km on foot..
snsabot: Logged on 2019-12-15 17:18:34 lobbes: is looking forward to an asciilifeform photoblog of uy; enjoyed jfw's recent series
asciilifeform: << lol who then had 'disorderly' ?! and that pillow was , near as i can tell, straw. tho did not take knife to it to find for certain ftr
snsabot: Logged on 2019-12-16 03:47:47 Vexual: mike_c commends the orderly liquidation of snsa in #t. me, i've never seen a straw pillow
asciilifeform: << lol BingoBoingo , he actually ponied up ?!
snsabot: (trilema) 2019-12-18 BingoBoingo: !Qlater tell mike_c Here's the strategy and why it is your best shot at recovering your coin
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: No, I decided after a bit more than 24 hours of silence to give him the winning argument, why it works, and exactly why it costs what it does
asciilifeform: so wait, wai would he pay for it nao if already gave ?
asciilifeform suspects that the fella already ran away, screaming, as far as his legs could carry...
asciilifeform ftr flown 83kg from BingoBoingostan; of which 60kg useful payload ( vs. padding, own clothes, mains plugs, etc )
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Here is why and I know that you know why this is the one that works. I trust you not to spoil it.
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: i promise not to spoil.
asciilifeform will read after tea
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: chinesium trunk survived return voyage. tho quite battered .
BingoBoingo: Lasted exactly long enough
asciilifeform: orc-made trunk apparently invincible. will be used for future work .
BingoBoingo: Nice. Will remember that one if I need to parajump
asciilifeform: ftr the 'get outta customs' membership thing worx a++. they let in through 'diplomat' door, no wankage w/ 'oh noez food' etc.
