adlai: ./ticker btc usd
shinohai: adlai: Nah, my server went down again yesterday. I'm moving bot from there to new shell, gotta set up a sbcl environment first.
adlai: thank you for the information
adlai puts on a hat labelled `btcinfobot' and announces: "Current BTC price in USD: slightly under 7k"
asciilifeform: shinohai: lemme know when you get tired of the garbage hosters, lol
shinohai: asciilifeform: Will do, though just waiting on biz to pick back up. Now that all those Qntra shares are worthless from last quarter and won't be paid, it may take a bit longer than I hoped.
asciilifeform: in other lulz: 188.8.131.52 - - [10/Apr/2020:11:57:14 -0400] "GET / HTTP/1.1" 200 10722 "-" "Keurig-K475-Coffee-Maker"
asciilifeform: ^ prolly a fiction, but at least original.
asciilifeform: shinohai: re 'biz pick up' -- it's yer box. but keep in mind 'the miser pays twice'(tm).
asciilifeform: (and 'you get what you pay for')
shinohai: Being miser is indeed one of my faults.
asciilifeform also miser, and still regrets not having done the hands-reachable rack thing years ago. there's simply no other way to get comparable service than to do w/ hands.
asciilifeform: shinohai: if yer uncertain whether yer sbcl etc setup will run there, you can have demo rk for 1mo. lemme know if interested, i'ma prepare one.
shinohai: What version of sbcl were you using, 1.4.9 ?
asciilifeform: dun recall, but can install any ver from portage iirc
adlai: better than that, you can compile your own version of sbcl from ~anything
adlai: even if there is no cl provided by your package manager: cc can build ecl or clisp, and either of those can build sbcl
adlai: this does admittedly require a bit of bearding
adlai: iirc, clisp is the only cl interpreter, which is quite useful for debugging (everything else has to fake cl:step)
adlai: it is a funny joke though :)

asciilifeform: shinohai: still tuned into ffa ?
shinohai: asciilifeform: I am. Almost ready to sign ch.6 vpatch and publish.
asciilifeform has been deriving a non-braindamaged (i.e. fully general, incl. for even moduli) variant of this algo
asciilifeform: shinohai: neato
shinohai: The girls decided to "spring clean" my office/lab abt week ago, in their enthusiasm erased entire whiteboard with my ch.6 notes xD
asciilifeform: at least chalkboard and not hdd..
asciilifeform: shinohai: found any difficulties in ch6 ?
shinohai: Nothing so far I couldn't work out on said whiteboard. Has got me thinking a lot on RSA.
asciilifeform: shinohai: share thoughts ?
shinohai: (A side project has been building static gpg1.4.10 using musl)
asciilifeform: iirc trinque had a musl gpg for yrs nao
asciilifeform: for that matter i had one on musl 'pogo' in '15
shinohai: Oh yeah? Haven't tried doing any musl things on pogo, mainly because such a pita to do *anything* on it.
asciilifeform: shinohai: it was where i originally deployed musl
asciilifeform: ( shortly afterwards, realized that it worx entirely same on x86, and built 'rotor' )
asciilifeform: simply so happened that i never heard of it prior to setting off to build a userland for pogo
asciilifeform: shinohai: i found that pogo was easy to work with once built a 'tftp' uboot for it. but i may've been the only 1 who bothered with this.
shinohai: I still have soft spot for pogo for some reason, though was sad trb never was able to run on it :/
asciilifeform: shinohai: trb ran in fact (i posted a ~5MB fw w/ kernel and trb in it) , just not satisfyingly
shinohai: Oh I remember your arm binary, it *did* run ... but got memory bound iirc
asciilifeform: trb really wants at least 2GB to run smoothly
shinohai: Still no progress on getting it to work on rk ?
asciilifeform: shinohai: i haven't tried
asciilifeform: imho rk is not an ideal machine for trb ( given as usb3 jack is the only place to hand a hdd there )
asciilifeform: re low-power trb irons -- thus far i've found 'apu1' (the 4GB variant) entirely satisfying
asciilifeform: draws <15W, fanless amd 'g-series' .
