jurov: asciilifeform: yes noone wanted it. and i got lost, too.
jurov: why have trb when everyone just ignores or routes around it by mining nminally compatible blocks?
asciilifeform: jurov: who's 'everyone' ? i can't speak for you, but my trb nodes work 100% -- keep up w/ chain; successfully send & receive tx. today just as in '15.
asciilifeform: jurov: if you don't want to work tbf, i'll do it. (would like to hire jurov as treasurer tho! if he's available)
jurov: for example... if I limit myself to 1x addresses, can I still buy anything?
asciilifeform: jurov: what exactly can even buy w/ btc today ?
asciilifeform: admittedly i've heard of places which insist on prb-only addrs, but have not personally encountered.
asciilifeform: holyfuq i can't even believe that i'm having ~this~ conv. w/ ...chair of tbf!!
asciilifeform: jurov: if you don't even want to ~use~ trb, i ought not be surprised that you don't want to maintain it. i, however, intend to maintain it. because i aint letting ~my~ coin touch prb, for so long as i have any.
asciilifeform: jurov: i'm willing to maintain the tbf www, if yer willing to pass it on. and curate patches. but if yer tired of guarding the coin piggy, i rec. to launch it into the sun.
shinohai is sad ....
asciilifeform: iirc shinohai is the 1 other fella interested in tbf. maybe could be co-chair.
asciilifeform: shinohai: wai sad ? fella's honest. he admitted, doesn't have the will to fight nomoar
jurov: Seems i am just a tinkerer and can't systematically manage much. So yes, you can be a chair.
shinohai: Will gladly help out with tbf in any way possible.
jurov: Just keeping the piggy itself is a minor thing.
asciilifeform: jurov: a++ then.
asciilifeform recalls that asciilifeform already 'tried & convicted for stealing tbf'. may as well actually do it, lol
shinohai: lmao I can think of worse convictions asciilifeform
asciilifeform: jurov: what's your availability like in next 2wks ? i'd like to start updating the tbf www, for example.
jurov: I will be around.
asciilifeform: jurov: some of what i'd like to do : 1) install a beefier box in place of that rk 2) integrate tbf www and the lxr thing there -- unless jurov has a better site already 3) get the ml up again
asciilifeform: ...4) cut a release containing mod6's last tree (w/ the wedge fix)
asciilifeform: 5) revive tbf broadcast.
asciilifeform: this imho is quite enuff for a start.
asciilifeform: lemme know whatcha think, jurov . and shinohai , lemme know whether (and how) you might like to participate.
asciilifeform bbl in coupla hr
shinohai: asciilifeform: I think goals above are a fine start. If ya need help with any just lemme know whatcha need. Am already currently retesting mod6's last tree, as I don't think I published a blog post on it.
jurov: I did nothing last few months and this isn't going to improve.
shinohai: jurov: saw you in the #lisp logs this morning, working on anything interesting?
jurov: tinkering as i said, can't promise anything
jurov: and when i am stumbling on such things as forgetting about case of common lisp symbols..dunno if it goes anywhere
asciilifeform: jurov: if you have cl q's , don't hesitate to ask in #a
asciilifeform: jurov: if asciilifeform aint awake, coupla other folx are likely to be
jurov: and get scolded for trying nonstandard stuff :) (it was about package nicknames)
jurov: *package-local nicknames
