busybot: Current BTC price in USD: $16939.94

bitbot[asciilifeform]: Logged on 2022-11-10 11:20:49 billymg: according to my chart lines it needs to go above $18.6k and stay there to be out of the woods
billymg[asciilifeform]: amazing how much the chart respects this line, it could've been drawn back at the beginning of march
billymg[asciilifeform]: which i guess could be seen as bad, if it means those that 'paint the chart' are still in full control
signpost[asciilifeform]: curious where we'd be if the demand on FTX had flowed into actual BTC
signpost[asciilifeform]: not solely FTX but especially them
signpost[asciilifeform] has no price prediction, just an intent to hold across many more halvings
signpost[asciilifeform]: ate at around $16.5k most recently
signpost[asciilifeform]: even that was just a dumb "eh buy under my cost basis" thing

phf[asciilifeform]: oh man i'm rereading 2016 -2017 logs, and they are just beautiful. such information, such infrastructure. the good old days.
asciilifeform: phf: link to nostalgi-favourites ?
phf[asciilifeform]: asciilifeform, i was looking "sexp from:phf" search results, and just picked up random day it's got everything!
phf[asciilifeform]: … quotes from vera inber and nekrasov, banking world discussions, technical conversations, newbs, ratings, building projects, quotes from things
phf[asciilifeform]: like some kind of futuristic "cantina" scene. "so i told her, pay up, or i'll gut ya" "ibners, fresh raw ibners, 20 shatoshis" "and the WIFE was actually THE UNCLE *hearty laughter*" "check my new nakomo cyberdeck, man, it's flowing"
phf[asciilifeform]: asciilifeform, which reminded me, you ever made an archive of
phf[asciilifeform]: this thread from the end of the page is neat,
phf[asciilifeform]: i guess because mp was one of the frequent log re-readers, the idea of "archive a link at the time it's posted" in retrospect makes a lot of sense. alas
signpost[asciilifeform]: << christ these rants were comedic gold, too.
bitbot[asciilifeform]: (trilema) 2016-12-07 mircea_popescu: he's solved the problems other people might have, on the basis of what he imagines a biologist might do, which is so pointedly not what any biologist ever does you can scarcely begin to wonder what fucking highschool the author frequented, because his mental furniture seems to have dive
signpost[asciilifeform]: "... diverged from the common trunk somewhere around the age of NEGATIVE THIRTEEN,"
signpost[asciilifeform]: there was an entirely other world in there. glad it happened, though next time 1kyr reich.
signpost[asciilifeform]: << kinda looks like who is greater-ccp at this point.
bitbot[asciilifeform]: (trilema) 2016-12-08 mircea_popescu: the WHO is the major consideration ; the what is relatively equivalent.
signpost[asciilifeform]: but who knows how ww3 shakes out.
signpost[asciilifeform]: africans finally left to their time. can't imagine there are enough nukes aimed there to make a permanent dent.
phf[asciilifeform]: i've woken up at 5am to go freeze my ass off in a deer stand, i can't comprehend this kind of heady threads at this point. will read tomorrow
asciilifeform: << al.tar.gz + iirc have ~all the moar recent material

asciilifeform: << can't speak for otherfolx, but when rereading these asciilifeform barfs evenmoar nao, than today, at mp's 'aristocratic' narcissism
