asciilifeform: ACHTUNG readers! logotron updated w/ paged search result display. plox to report bugs.
asciilifeform: ... logotron www updated w/ vpatch !!
asciilifeform: example.
asciilifeform: meanwhile also regenned db indices for faster search.
shinohai: In today's topkeks: https://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2020/07/red-hat-and-centos-systems-arent-booting-due-to-boothole-patches/
asciilifeform: shinohai: see earlier thread.
snsabot: Logged on 2020-07-30 00:35:57 asciilifeform: Apocalyptic: how the hell is this a vuln ? 'secure boot' is elementary fritzchip (i.e. 'secure against owner')
shinohai: bwahaha, so rich
asciilifeform: shinohai: past ~decade had steady 'camel's nose into the tent' progression where microshit agreed to sign a grub bloatware bootloader, w/ the expectation that eventually the latter will be 'improved' to only load rathead-signed kernels etc. tivoization.
shinohai: I wish I had documented my experience getting the HP lappy I bought to even boot Gentoo, required "Microshit signed key" or something to even allow it to boot from USB
asciilifeform: shinohai: most of these can be cured by flashing patched bios. but rarely worth the effort.
shinohai: I bought this one because it was 1) cheap and 2) needed something that at least had HD grafix for games.
shinohai: (Still managed to avoid systemd AND uses alsa)
asciilifeform: lol what games in gentoo, outta curiosity ? 'xpenguin' ?
shinohai: Girls love to play SuperTuxCart and I have libretro working on it, for all teh classics
asciilifeform: a
shinohai: simply added xboxdrv for generic controllers, had long used that when I was playing Eulora
shinohai: We play quake3 and DOOM a lot too
asciilifeform: doom worx a++ under 'dosbox' neh
asciilifeform: no gpu req'd
asciilifeform: meanwhile, 1 moar vpatch w/ errata .
shinohai: Haven't tried with dosbox, is in repos under games-fps/quake3
asciilifeform: shinohai: i was speaking of the classical 1990s doom
shinohai: Ah kk.
shinohai: Though sure classic would run fine under libretro as well
asciilifeform not tried 'libretro'. prefers msdosisms nowadays on physical box.
shinohai: I started using it because easy to manage many platforms in one place. Even runs all my odyessey2 ROM dumps.
asciilifeform: meanwhile in vintage misc., nao browsable chronologically.
shinohai: No word from poor gl since 2018, did heart finally explode from overuse of meth?
asciilifeform: shinohai: sank into mariana trench for all i know
asciilifeform: all can see w/ naked eye is that not touched his shithub in yrs. tho may simply mean that he was cured of shithub.
asciilifeform: on that www where he slaved for pennies to order also last seen in '18 apparently.
asciilifeform: RIP.
shinohai: sad masamune might have been great thing
asciilifeform: shinohai: near as i could tell, it was simply a heathen linux + sbcl glued on.
asciilifeform: fella at one pt promised a cltronic 'portage' replacement of some kind, but afaik never showed.
asciilifeform: he admitted to taking dope regularly, and of the kind that exacerbates 'delusion of grandeur', was genuinely convinced that he had 'rebuilt lispm'...
shinohai: Must be whatever mp started using
asciilifeform: shinohai: iirc mp also w/ dope, but insisted 'had quit'
shinohai: I'm not convinced, because up until about mid-2017, had relatively sane guy that suddenly became unrecognizable.
asciilifeform: it aint impossible, in principle, s. freud did, famously, quit.
shinohai: I suppose this ties in with the burden of money thing you had mentioned previously
asciilifeform: shinohai: dunno, g_l apparently managed it w/ ~0 money somehow
asciilifeform: ( how -- remains mystery. but dope aficionados do seem to develop the talent of 'getting' w/ seemingly 0 )
shinohai: I imagine temptation is higher when one actually has resources to buy said substances.
asciilifeform: possibly
asciilifeform cannot comment in detail, unfortunately (.. or fortunately)
asciilifeform: it is however my understanding that no dope can cause the eater to develop wholly new character flaws. can only magnify existing ones.
