thimbronion: asciilifeform: ty
asciilifeform: $ticker btc usd
btcinfobot: Current BTC price in USD: $34702.32
asciilifeform: wb cgra !
cgra: trinque: i've been playing with your item some more, specifically seems like i've managed to build an arm64 equivalent. but wanted to ask: did you find out yet why does gnat build get ill if using multiple build jobs?
snsabot: Logged on 2020-09-07 19:30:13 trinque: asciilifeform and shinohai, find instructions to build the musltron here
cgra: asciilifeform: hi!
cgra: trinque: also, got a handful of related notes to perhaps share, or do you already have a significantly different, new item on your table?
cgra: asciilifeform: i went to explore the (originally mostly unknown to me) arm64 land after realizing amd64 opcode encoding is hideously complex... in the hopes of finding a better place to study binary auditability
asciilifeform: cgra: indeed hideous. worst aspects of x86.
cgra: << yeah, sorry i didn't ack! i read the article and found as previously discussed
snsabot: Logged on 2021-02-02 10:56:01 asciilifeform: cgra: re your finds from before btw
asciilifeform: shinohai: rather like e.g. systemd, is a peculiarly persistent effort to backport microshit dysfunction to linux
shinohai: Oh yeah, I remembered all the lulzy discussion re: Wayland in #t ... RIP phf
asciilifeform: (i.e. abandons the ~one and only~ mega-win from x11 -- ability to run proggies on remote machine and have'em vector-draw on arbitrary local display exactly as if they were local)
asciilifeform: shinohai: afaik dun affect 1.4.x. see whether you can unearth the actual patch tho, might be interesting
asciilifeform: theoretically oughta nail folx using 2.x tho
shinohai: Just saw it come across feed, was planning to go spelunking later to see if could locate.
snsabot: (trilema) 2016-03-30 asciilifeform: solzhenitsyn's thing with 'if every man hit the arresting kgb agent with an axe' is not wholly mistaken, but consider, individual bee sting does not kill a bear. ~hive~ stings.
thimbronion: asciilifeform: I'm probably doing the sha512 checksum wrong, but currently I can't get a match with the hash posted for dulap-r2.tar.gz:
asciilifeform: thimbronion: your dload is either truncated or bitrotted
asciilifeform: thimbronion: what's yer file size ?
asciilifeform: oughta be 1105154420 bytes.
thimbronion: asciilifeform: hm yeah size is wrong.
thimbronion: 2638499840
asciilifeform: btw thimbronion -- use this mirror
trinque: cgra quite different, yes.
trinque: lmk if you want to give the newer one a try
trinque: lately I'm working the old cuntoo installer into it
asciilifeform: unrelatedly, i take this back -- it STILL SUCKS. simply, in diff direction. no matter how the knobs are adjusted, blocks of white on the screen 'cut the eyes', at any brightness where text is at all legible.
snsabot: Logged on 2021-01-27 14:02:40 asciilifeform: apropos of nuffin: to round off this thread -- indeed proper display. took 2 tries, however, to buy, 1st one was DOA. costs like entire comp, but indeed 0 flicker (of either backlight or pixel-dither variety.)
asciilifeform suspects sumthing about the spectrum of the led backlights. and no, playing with gamme/temperature/etc has 0 palpable effect.
asciilifeform: vendor claims that 0 pwmism and 0 ditherism on the display in question.
asciilifeform: and this is actually my 7th eizo, never had any complaint with previous ones. until got old, and nao they 'small'.
