asciilifeform: $ticker btc usd
busybot: Current BTC price in USD: $29205.29
punkman: "important-package" heh
shinohai: lmao .... but I imagine plenty of folks never bother to look what's in `requirements.txt` before running pip.
asciilifeform: the morons who, when shown vtronics, react w/ e.g. 'arduous crackpottery' -- let'em enjoy the rm -rf or backconnect shell 'libraries', wainot
verisimilitude: Everyone here still trusts someone. Prove no older version of the Linux kernel lacks a flaw useful specifically in 2025, say.
phf: is there a keccak implementation in c that produces equivalent result to what diana's ada does?
asciilifeform: phf: jfw's 'keksum'
phf: a ty
phf: why look at that
phf: !rating jfw
phf: i forgot who that was, i also forgot how to get a rating
phf: but how get all ratings?
verisimilitude: Don't get rated, get irritated.
phf: would be nice to get a paste that has nick rating comment\n
dulapbot: Logged on 2022-04-19 13:10:25 asciilifeform: phf: recall how there was a pair of young fellas (jfw & dorion) who were still there at 'lights out', thought could 'carry whole thing'
dulapbot: Logged on 2020-07-02 22:17:59 asciilifeform: this incidentally is why i regard jfw & co's proj. of 'sell trb kit to rich morons' as ill-conceived. ( if it were to succeed, will likely get the participants killed, moron will make inevitable coarse error of pilotage & blame the 'helper', whom else, mp types are biologically incapable of introspection and coming to terms with own intellectual limits in any other way )
dulapbot: Logged on 2020-05-02 13:26:15 asciilifeform: in other noose, i was a little surprised to learn that jfw's optoisolator product is literally the same kit as my lab bench one. i wouldn't have done that; that thing is pretty fragile.
asciilifeform: !!rated jfw
deedbot: asciilifeform rated jfw 2 at 2019/12/11 16:10:43 << maths fella, industrial FG user.
asciilifeform: d00d purchased entire 'warehouse' of FG, buncha irons from piz, etc
asciilifeform: iirc even nao maintains 'hostile fork' of trb
asciilifeform at one pt tried to read his materials, did not find anyffin of interest
phf: i am curious how far they've gotten with the whole project of selling and promoting it to outsiders. i can totally see their operation becoming one of those "bitcoin experts, will help you with opsec of holding coins!"
phf: without necessarily even the possibly not inevitable theft ending
asciilifeform: phf: nominally still in biz, can try & write to him. (iirc normally lives on his own variant of dulapnet, but w/out the 'guest door', so prolly best bet is via www comment)
asciilifeform: last asciilifeform knew, jfw et al's kit made FG look like 'bestseller' in comparison; but whoknows, maybe nao finally rich&famous...
asciilifeform: ( see also e.g. )
dulapbot: Logged on 2021-11-11 18:52:50 asciilifeform: i recall d00d was 'definitely gonna' make 'own' over9000ximproved fg etc.
dulapbot: Logged on 2022-05-11 14:19:27 asciilifeform: naively pictured that 3+y is moar than enuff time to bake a sane client, for N d00dz who otherwise not occupied w/ anyffin, and realize the need for such
asciilifeform: maybe in fact did all of this, and not bothered to say. nfi
asciilifeform: seekrit wunderwaffen of werwulf.tmsr.
shinohai: Prolly has no motivation now there isn't a cock for 'em to gobble.
asciilifeform: shinohai: asciilifeform has genuinely nfi. maybe he's hoping to get in diana's pants. who knows.
phf: i suspect it's also a hard sell, but i also suspect they have one or two clients. i've done "selling superior stack" at various points in my career, it usually attracts 60yr old men with some money who want to invest in something exciting while feeling still with it. that direction doesn
phf: 't go anywhere, though it'll provide a very thin trickle of money
asciilifeform: last knew, was exactly what they had
asciilifeform: (complained even, that these 'pay and then won't attend 2nd lesson')
asciilifeform: afaik 0 people ever 'got rich' tutoring, quasiliterate alzheimer patients or otherwise. so not clear to asciilifeform what was 'the clever plan' there.
asciilifeform: iirc jfw co. was charging 3-4k$ for the gear (while FG supplies last). not exactly mercedes.
shinohai: billymg: is logbot down on pestnet?
billymg: just got my new server in the mail, from the same ebay vendor. this time it worked, unlike last time
bitbot: Logged on 2022-03-31 18:23:43 billymg: so i finally got the raid card and correct 2.5 to 3.5" sled adapters for my server but i can't get the thing to boot a gentoo install disk. worst part is nothing seems obviously wrong (gives single "all good" post beep, bios appears to work fine and doesn't show any errors, ram check on post passes)
billymg: http://logs.bitdash.io/asciilifeform/2022-05-20#1103047 << checking...
bitbot: Logged on 2022-05-20 18:46:11 shinohai: billymg: is logbot down on pestnet?
billymg: strange, i didn't do anything except connect in weechat and issue a test message (which the bot logged properly)
bitbot: (pest) 2022-05-20 billymg: test
shinohai: I've got this weird little net going by myself then I reckon, was testing jonsykkel 's newest smalpest - I can see messages from my phone, and the bot recognizes my cmds but naught else it appears.
billymg: shinohai: ah, for the log bot to see you you'll have to be peered with asciilifeform or myself
shinohai: am peered with same keyz as before best I can tell, might nuke 'em and try again.
billymg doesn't mind peering the bot with others, if they want a direct link
billymg: shinohai: iirc our peering never worked properly, so the bot was seeing your messages through asciilifeform
shinohai: billymg: yeah I always kept seeing you as hearsay ... everyone else worked fine :/
billymg: shinohai: yeah, i haven't gotten around yet to digging into that (also never successfully paired with signpost or mod6 -- or my own crawlerbot!)
billymg: but for other 60% of peers, worked fine, with the same steps, so dunno
billymg: when i get the new server set up i'll try from there, maybe will magically work, then can try and see what the hell is the difference
shinohai: Sounds good, and luck with setup - hope you got one that isn't broken this time.
billymg: yes, already tested and boots into gentoo livecd!
billymg: even with all 256gb of ram plugged in
billymg: i think alf's first guess was right
bitbot: Logged on 2022-03-31 18:26:54 asciilifeform: a then sounds like a dud mb
billymg: so notbad in the end, now i have a set of spare matching cpus/fans
billymg: and power supplies, sata backplate, pci riser, etc.
shinohai: billymg: once I added asciilifeform to address table bot now sees me, must have been missing.
billymg: shinohai: nice!
shinohai just used ugy hack with sed/awk to sump info from blatta ....
phf: no such thing as ugly sed/awk, kind of like the point of that whole thing
verisimilitude: Oh, so there's no such thing as smelly shit either, phf?
shinohai: billymg: strangely enuf using smalpest I no longer see you as hearsay!
billymg: shinohai: from 'u0_a280'?
billymg: `/at` still shows 'no packets received' from shinohai
