KRS|gotyawallet: <btc-revolution-s> im a donor
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [NEOBEE] 374 @ 0.002 = 0.748 BTC [+]
KRS|gotyawallet: ok it looks like he donated to "fontase"- 204 btc
KRS|gotyawallet: to get in the "inner circle"
benkay: wow wtfuckballs
KRS|gotyawallet: <btc-revolution-s> to crash out a ppump and dumper
KRS|gotyawallet: <btc-revolution-s> on his coins
KRS|gotyawallet: <btc-revolution-s> so he couldent get them back out
KRS|gotyawallet: <mike4> lol
KRS|gotyawallet: its all in #bitcoin-pricetalk if there are any logs following that chat room
benkay: oh i'm watching now
KRS|gotyawallet: basically- if this is true, hold your coins..according to him its going to be a "rough two weeks".
benkay: i have a hard time buying some rando in pricetalk's claims to move the entire btc market
Duffer1: what's he trying to accomplish?
KRS|gotyawallet: stop pumper and dumpers
KRS|gotyawallet: i guess i can pastebin tis
Duffer1: oh alt coin p&d?
ozbot: <wentknweqt_> good luck with stopping the pump and dumpers. i don't believe you -
KRS|gotyawallet: yeah even btc p&d
KRS|gotyawallet: some of these might be the "whales"
benkay: just no

benkay: maybe there are people with giant amounts of btc floating around still who are trying to p/d, but the pumps last an entire month and the dumps last for trivial amounts of time
Duffer1: it seems he's taking credit for cryptsy's current troubles
Duffer1: ohh donate to fontas to get inside info, then crush it
benkay: /query bingoboingo
KRS|gotyawallet: -> benkay
KRS|gotyawallet: yes Duffer1
KRS|gotyawallet: <btc-revolution-s> we are the anti-pump and dumpers
KRS|gotyawallet: <btc-revolution-s> group of donors crashing out pump and dumpers - i thought you were in here with head banana and some others when we gave our first warnings
benkay: more like doner kebab
KRS|gotyawallet: he is that dude who's trying to live without fiat 100% btc
Duffer1: it's almost a case of too little too late, everything on BTC-E is already absurdly overpriced
KRS|gotyawallet: it seems they did the same with litecoin
KRS|gotyawallet: now looking back at the markets its amazing how they naturally normalize after some time
Duffer1: fontas just tweeted colossus coin pump, guess he's moving on to the coin graveyard er i mean cryptsy
KRS|gotyawallet: heh i made some good money with fontas
KRS|gotyawallet: i think he's funny
Duffer1: ya no doubt there's money to be had from it
Duffer1: and with the amount of B following him, pumping some of those .00000001 coins on cryptsy could be very lucrative
KRS|gotyawallet: According to btc-revolution its "bad for btc" =/
KRS|gotyawallet: you better believe
KRS|gotyawallet: that is right duffer1
benkay: i still want to know what this is all about:
KRS|gotyawallet: very interesting- a ton of DVC (Devcoin) was just deposited into some exchanges who ran out..many are anticipating a rise in value
KRS|gotyawallet: if dDVC is devcoin?
Duffer1: ya that's devcoin
KRS|gotyawallet: Devcorp?
KRS|gotyawallet: ok so they are paying developers in Devcoin?
Duffer1: apparently that was it's original purpose
Duffer1: i don't know much about the coin, other than it will be de-listed from mcxNOW soon
KRS|gotyawallet: mcxNOW is being delisted from mcxNOW heh
KRS|gotyawallet: its all over for them
Duffer1: could be
Duffer1: realsolid is a flake
KRS|gotyawallet: thats the impression i got
KRS|gotyawallet: but damn..this looks too much like a bubble so idk what side of the fence to be on here..
Duffer1: which coin?
benkay: just be on the btc coin
benkay: develop a smug regard for day-traders
benkay: cackle gleefully when you are living your life during mini crashes
benkay: "what, there was a 30% value wobble? lol too bad i was busy drinking champange to notice"
KRS|gotyawallet: ya i play with altcoins fur the lulz all btc atm

TomServo: What is really needed is a system where coins outside of circulation lose value so that the length of the blockchain can be easily kept to a manageable size because lost coins will disappear and the amount of history you have to keep (and verify) will be much smaller.

ozbot: FAQ BitBet
ozbot: FAQ BitBet
kakobrekla: i starts at 100k and goes down to whatever its set to go down to
kakobrekla: to account for the risk that early bettors are taking and discourage leechers
jamespeerless: is the idea that at the start of the bet the odds aren't really known?
kakobrekla: it starts*
kakobrekla: or else it wouldnt be much of a bet
kakobrekla: if outcome is known
jamespeerless: so it's to handle bets that range over long period of time or where information is leaked over time
jamespeerless: but if its "will the patriots win on sunday" WHEN you bet doesn't matter if the game hasn't started
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [AM100] 353 @ 0.00339082 = 1.197 BTC [+] {10}
pankkake: what if a player gets ill?
pankkake: it's a new information
pankkake: late bettors usually have better info and less risk
pankkake: but there are bets where it wouldn't matter - and in that case you can create the bet with a higher last weight
jamespeerless: makes sense
jamespeerless: and it decreases linearly over time?
pankkake: typically that bet really shouldn't go to weight 1… oh well

kakobrekla: >BFL_Josh>here's been a bit of a delay at the foundry on our chips and scheduling. The sample chips have been delayed a few weeks (still waiting on an exact date), so this should only affect the earliest customers, who we've already contacted with regards to the delay. The majority of customers should not be affected much, if at all.
kakobrekla: When I have a specific date from the foundry, I will post an update here with a revised timeline. We still expect to ship the bulk of the orders in/around February. Anyone ordering now will probably not get their order until March or April, just as an FYI and in the spirit of trying to keep realistic expectations on shipping times.

Vexual: now im not an economist by any stretch of the imagination..
Vexual: ah yes, fees
mircea_popescu: Vexual looky : about 20 trn of new wealth is added to the world each year. the asset value of the world, all things told, is probably two to three degrees of magnitude above that.
mircea_popescu: if one single currency is to represent all that value, and especially if that one single currency is bitcoin, where people exhibit a massive tendency to hoard it,
mircea_popescu: it's not inconceivable that the btc still in circulation by the time btc takes over the whole world economy will trade at what would be the equivalent of today's billion dollars.
mircea_popescu: it is probably forcing a point, which is why i say upper bound.
Vexual: i agree

mike_c: of course, since the ancestor who made the money is dead, who cares?
ThickAsThieves: many care, legacy is a big deal for some
mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves the trick is, making a fortune and keeping a fortune are pretty divergent skills.
mircea_popescu: consider the following imo very illustrative example :
mircea_popescu: everyone involved in bitcoin of any consequence exhibits the "cave early" behaviour.
mike_c: tough to enjoy your legacy when you're dead.
ThickAsThieves: mike_c this value varies by culture
ThickAsThieves: some really do enjoy knowing they have a legacy to leave
mircea_popescu: now, this is a rare behaviour irl. if you go up to a girl and ask her out, it's rare that she says "ok, i'm willing to be your gf now" after two hours.
Vexual: ah hem
mircea_popescu: in general, the expectation will be that she caves late. and indeed should you after a three week courtship tell her gtfo, you should have said yes on the first pass it'll be unexpected.
mircea_popescu: now, bitcoiners are exactly the opposite : they are in bitcoin because they caved early, to the lures of this bitcoin idea.
mircea_popescu: the bears are more akin to the girl : they expect bitcoin to court them.
mircea_popescu: the funny thing is, that the people who caved early and got bitcoin will continue with the same behaviour : they cave early and get dollars, too.
ThickAsThieves: and will thus miss much of the appreciation
mircea_popescu: this is why we see this see saw pattern on the price : once it reaches 100 everyone who thought "three digits" sells out
mircea_popescu: the mounting buying pressure is temporarily sated, but then later on ? 200, 500, 800 go by like a dream
mircea_popescu: because all the kids who were going to sell at 100 to 1000 sold at 130ish
mircea_popescu: the same will repeat for a while, i suspect. most of the people that willl sell under 10k have sold or are about to sell at 1k ish
mircea_popescu: now, this behaviour clearly does not optimize the $$$ you get for your btc,
mircea_popescu: but it is coherent with the behaviour that GOT YOU that btc in the first place.
mircea_popescu: and this is not limited to our narrow corner of tghe world. keeping a fortune and making a fortune are widely different skillsets.
Vexual: eat rice
Vexual: sell wagu
mircea_popescu: obviously the same cave early behaviour is related to a lot of the forum-style scammy nonsense passing for investment so successfully.

mircea_popescu: im sure pig meant boar hog.
mircea_popescu: they didn't have basna back then
Vexual: maybe start with something like a coral
ThickAsThieves: well they attribute our smooth skin to the pig
ThickAsThieves: and arent boars hairy?

ThickAsThieves: arent all pigs hairy?
mircea_popescu: see mangalitsa
ThickAsThieves: no wonder it had to rape a monkey to get laid
truffles: if this theory were true would ur mind be blown
Vexual: yes
ThickAsThieves: i dont care at all
truffles: u care
truffles: this is crazy stuff!
ThickAsThieves: if some pig humped some monkey ages ago?

truffles: this is something the bitcoin foundation should take care of
deadweasel: truffles, please don't speak so much

truffles: well its not "technically" done but still
mircea_popescu: truffles you can add some child porn to the blockchain yourself.

kakobrekla: BAN THE MOON!
ThickAsThieves: ban the internet
ThickAsThieves: look at all the damage its done
mircea_popescu: well at least, if we're contemplating the task of censoring the blockchain, i would say the bitcoin foundation is a well chosen agent.

kakobrekla: only if its in CP
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform here's a theorem : for any jpg representation of a six year old riding a tumescent pig penis,
mircea_popescu: there exists a natural number indicating the first pi decimal at which that jpg representation can be found
asciilifeform: simon plouffe proved already.
mircea_popescu: whole and unabridged
asciilifeform: only problem is that said offset is typically much longer than the payload. but this may not be a problem for this use case.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i vaguely recall that as long as the payload is finite, so is the offset
mircea_popescu: but i don't remember who proved that one
asciilifeform: here's the fun part
asciilifeform: not part of the proof, afaik
asciilifeform: if you can put up with lossiness, you make the search considerably easier.
mircea_popescu: a good point
asciilifeform: the offset where the digits, using some straightforward bitmap view, can be Roscharched into the pic, is probably findable.
mircea_popescu: i change to "a recognisable depiction"

mircea_popescu: "we have received large amounts of unsolicited mailings from various poseurs. sorting through all this crap takes time which would be better used otherwise. we are uninterested in the volunteered opinions of self-styled authorities, we intend to retain experts for answering any questions we may need answered and ingore anything else"

asciilifeform: the choppers are easy to build, one fellow i know cobbled together a classic design that lifts several full soda cans.
asciilifeform: putters along for 1/2 hr. or so.
asciilifeform: what changed? cheap 3-axis gyros.
Vexual: from phones
BingoBoingo: Maybe someone will scale up this idea to fire paintballs at any lenses mounted on drones
mircea_popescu: the cost per lb hour of chopper should be in the 5 to 10 cents range, once you get it mass produced.
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo usg drone fighting rc planes is definitely the thing of the future.
mircea_popescu: pewpewpew

asciilifeform: the pill for usg drones: sail right into the tailpipe.
asciilifeform: no need for bullet
mircea_popescu: (actually, i wonder what a rc plane equiped with 4 ounces of acetone and a sparker would do to a drone carrying a missile)
Vexual: take off the paint?
asciilifeform: magnet, thermite.
Vexual: im pretty sure anyone who might actually want to down a drone would have better explosives
Vexual: and an rc plane is relly just another drone
asciilifeform: the famous (u.s.) drones are very much tooled for unarmed targets that can't afford so much as a binocular.
Vexual: lot of good binoculars are going to do
asciilifeform: no defenses, to speak of, no maneuvering ability.
BingoBoingo: Vexual: thermite is simple and avoids all of the pretense concerning explosives. That the ingredients are essentially rust and aluminum powder or filings means preventing its production is impossible.

asciilifeform: dub: the notion of rf-hardening a widget that includes a large antenna is a curious one.
dub: presumably you would harden in the defensive direction (down) while leaving a channel on the harder to target side (up)
Vexual: its not actually large though is it
asciilifeform: dub: the hypothetical was: a toystore chopper limpets on to the larger one. what ought to be in the former.
mircea_popescu: acetone im telling you.
asciilifeform: one fun possibility: toy turns its rotors 90 deg., they turn into... windmill generators.
asciilifeform: for the spark gap...
dub: cheaper yet, a parachute
Vexual: a magnet and a parachute
asciilifeform: need an uncommonly solid grip, for a drogue chute.
dub: of course they can probably mitigate it when they realise telemetry is not lining up wth flight plan
asciilifeform: flight plan, from the moment of limpeting, should be 'vertical.'
dub: not if for a rotating wing
dub: it'll just limp a bit
Vexual: aluminium magnets are expensive too
asciilifeform: dub: for rotating wing, payload is: piano wire.
dub: hard to deploy right
Vexual: a long one
dub: thermite wins anyway
asciilifeform: no magnets for Al. nail gun.
Vexual: better make that 1st shot count
dub: if you're aiming a gun make it an rf gun
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform actually, horse hair
asciilifeform: for choppers, fly two toys, trailing piano wire between.
dub: otherwise the limpet needs to aquire taret and track
mircea_popescu: give it a slow death
Vexual: the theif could trail the piano wire in its path and hope for the tangle
asciilifeform: fishing line may even work, considering what will happen when the rotor winds it up.
asciilifeform: (suggested experiment: two tennis balls, fishing line, an old-style uncaged metal fan, an open field.)
mircea_popescu: usualyl in this sort of situation flexible > rigid
dub: I think you're going to need to get real lucky to tangle a cord in the prop
dub: need to attack from above basically
mircea_popescu: dub not if your fishing wire is part of a net.
Vexual: is that a little raddome on the top of tail?

asciilifeform: before you know it, we're back to 1930s state of the art: barrage balloon.
Vexual: it can climb with better conmtrol than descend
asciilifeform: usg drone is built for specific work: plug unarmed man, in open field, by surprise.
asciilifeform: to expect that it will be sent to do some other job is odd.
asciilifeform: a different machine is called for, and will appear.
asciilifeform: rf is a more interesting countermeasure than pyrotechnics, because enemy machines can travel by land, sea, hell, sewer line, and not only by air.
asciilifeform: solve the general case.
Vexual: sewer drone?
asciilifeform: when the bureaucrats say 'asymmetric war' and piss their pants, they aren't specifically thinking of bedouins with ak

mircea_popescu: where the idiots are themselves.
asciilifeform: naturally
mircea_popescu: "this war is asymetric in that the enemy chooses to not make the same exact mistakes we do"
Vexual: never heard of him
mircea_popescu: in this sense the us rebellion was asymmetric as seen from king george's palace.
asciilifeform: asymmetric: 'we are rich, they - poor, they oughta roll over and die fair and square.'
mircea_popescu: pretty much.
Vexual: war? what war?
asciilifeform: Vexual: 'you may not be interested in war, but war is quite interested in you.'
Vexual: ALL the money?
Vexual: is that one of yours ascii?
asciilifeform: trotsky!
Vexual: never heard of him
asciilifeform: btw, at the current max range of toy drone, one could achieve very similar results with: catapult.
Vexual: or a tennis ball
asciilifeform: (for product delivery, of things that don't mind being thrown)
asciilifeform: like most SR cargo.
Vexual: or an avalon
diametric: I really doubt that will ever come to fruition. It's just publicity. There's no way their attorneys are going to sign off on something thats going to have that much liability.
asciilifeform: diametric: it will be done. by people who don't care for legalities.
diametric: The potential damage to property and lives will be way to high. Anything strong enough to carry 5 pound packages is strong enough to kill someone.
diametric: asciilifeform: yeah
diametric: I still have faint scars from when I was playing with that one larger multirotor.
asciilifeform: everybody who builds toy choppers has the characteristic scars.
diametric: Or worse, there
diametric: There have been several deaths just this last year from them
asciilifeform: 'here comes the candle, to light you to bed. here comes the chopper, to chop off your head.'
Vexual: i lost one, fled immediately
asciilifeform: in the unlikely event of the 'legit' vendors using choppers, they'll go for enclosed airscrews. 'ufo' shape.

nubbins`: yeah, mass production is key

Vexual: no, its the phone
nubbins`: you can probably just get gyro arduino shields for cheaper than a wiimote now anyway
Vexual: wiimotes must cost a bit, they dont even give you one with a u

Vexual: depends how its done mp
KRS|gotyawallet: mircea_popescu: do you have an example of that?

KRS|gotyawallet: whre its illegal in a democracy to improve the capital value of labour? You mean pay a man more than a woman for certain types of jobs?
Vexual: apprently all our medical records were dutifully compiled into the prism database
Vexual: but theres a few unions that will dissappear a politician
mircea_popescu: KRS|gotyawallet no, i mean put them in a position where their abilities and knowledge actually improve so that they are objectively worth more.
KRS|gotyawallet: ok i see
KRS|gotyawallet: thanks i didnt understand
mircea_popescu: the process through which the antique adolescens solidified into vir, ie, a man, is the typical increase in value. it includes such experience as killing others, and being responsible for the self in new situations and so on.
mircea_popescu: similarly, but more politely, the process through which the medieval youth moved from unskilled apprentice to skilled journeyman to actual craftsman on his own is similar
mircea_popescu: these all include two things : adversative education, which is to say education done forcibly, without bothering with the consent of the educated, and political power. neither exist in a democracy, thus reducing the youth to this situation of neoteny.
Vexual: i was on my mobile phone doing deals at the back in 94

KRS|gotyawallet: On one hand we are talking about value, as it applies to labour which probably applies better to the context of capitalism and on the other hand we're applying that toward a democracy which doesnt necessarily recognize value, but rather mob rule.
Vexual: shits gonna get monkeypig

mircea_popescu: the democratic system however ensures that he's well penalised for that.
KRS|gotyawallet: right, he does the work of two men and doesnt need to be managed
mircea_popescu: unlike amy
mircea_popescu: also unlike amy, he doesn't vote. he lives in a different system, which both explains him and makes sense to him.
KRS|gotyawallet: he lives in a VERY different system although he doesn't even live that far away from where i do
mircea_popescu: well that's basically my point. in his system, every person is valuable, and because oif that you end up with hard working people who aren't depressed.
mircea_popescu: in amy's system you end up with amy, who has no skills and no future.
Vexual: i blame amy
mircea_popescu: so to speak, you brought my example yourself :)
KRS|gotyawallet: ahh ok..yes.
mircea_popescu: now, if amy got to spend a few years on a mexican farm among mexican people who'd put her lazy ass to work rather than ask her about her feelings
mircea_popescu: she'd come back a marrigeable, useful and generally sane and adult woman.
KRS|gotyawallet: maybe pregnant too.
mircea_popescu: but this doesn't happen where she lives. why not ? because nobody gives a shit.
KRS|gotyawallet: capitalism wouldnt let that her system is she given the necessities to survive even though she doesn't work?
Vexual: you might be confusing capitalism with something else
KRS|gotyawallet: how so? in a capitalist society she wouldnt be given anything, she would have to do something in order to survive ie: make herself useful

mircea_popescu: the way the capitalist democracy works is that she gets the bare minimum to survive, much like a cow in one of the insalubrous farms they invented.
mircea_popescu: up to her chest in shit, fed antibiotics to control the infection. everything at the bare minimum.
Duffer1_: even then it's almost not survivable
mircea_popescu: nobody can be bothered to give her a good lashing and put her to work, because this is more skilled and valuable attention than she "deserves".
mircea_popescu: consequently, she gets 2 hours of "therapy" and social media q.s.
Vexual: oldest society in the world
asciilifeform: "We shall escape the absurdity of growing a whole chicken in order to eat the breast or wing, by growing these parts separately under a suitable medium."
asciilifeform: who said?
mircea_popescu: and just like nobody botheres with amy i don't bother with that forum fuckwit and so the circle continues.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform either lincoln or churchil
KRS|gotyawallet: Pray to Jesus so the forum fuckwit can be saved and find salvation.
KRS|gotyawallet: LorenzoMoney heh I met him in guy.
KRS|gotyawallet: Hey there LorenzoMoney
Vexual: democratic capitalists, with violence
KRS|gotyawallet: Vexual: its very strange that foxes fly in your country..but then again I think some folks there even eat Bats.
Vexual: 40000 years, same shit, its human
KRS|gotyawallet: these are just giant bats dude..disgusting
KRS|gotyawallet: Any good?
Vexual: no idea
