BingoBoingo: If anyone wants to know how Open Source chess engines stack up against each other in the event that Play Chess for BTC becomes a thing so far it seems Stockfish>fruit>Pychess>Phlanx
BingoBoingo: Depending on how affluent suckers are it may be worth setting up a Windows machine to run Rybka though.
BingoBoingo: I'm finding some exceptions though. Fruit tends to annihilate Stockfish under strict (under 5 minute time constraints) while black. I also imagine the results might differ if I actually allowed any of these engines access to an opening book.
BingoBoingo: KRS|Gotyawallet: I'm just testing and releasing some early findings in case someone would decide to advance such a broken idea
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 1000 @ 0.00086783 = 0.8678 BTC [+]
KRS|Gotyawallet: whatcha got
BingoBoingo: KRS|Gotyawallet: Just engines running natively in Linux through PyChess fighting each other.
KRS|Gotyawallet: pretty interesting
BingoBoingo: KRS|Gotyawallet: Without any opening books feeding them they actually seem to be playing rather crippled in the early going.
KRS|Gotyawallet: i like the idea of modifying open source software to be driven by btc
KRS|Gotyawallet: im a i tend to think business apps- check it
KRS|Gotyawallet: you know that thing jurov set up - the open terminal i forgot the url
KRS|Gotyawallet: you click start and get a linux shell
KRS|Gotyawallet: same thing-but "Insert 0.01 for SugarCRM instance"
KRS|Gotyawallet: then the customer can go in and fiddle with SugarCRM
KRS|Gotyawallet: I've always hated having to set up a vm or download a virtual appliance and set it up on my own
KRS|Gotyawallet: I just want to use it damnit.
KRS|Gotyawallet: There are 1000's of apps that take time to set up to be able to use them..
BingoBoingo: Yeah, the catch is though that a lot of those demanding set up steps exist for reasons.
KRS|Gotyawallet: Usually you have to download a virtual appliance or if the vendor/project has a demo its restricted
KRS|Gotyawallet: im thinking this eliminates those reasons..concerns?
KRS|Gotyawallet: btw get ready to lose 25% or so of your btc net wealth
BingoBoingo: Eh, why would I lose that?
KRS|Gotyawallet: market aint so hot lately
KRS|Gotyawallet: im thinking if market price doesnt stabilize at 900's again it'll go 700's if it doesnt stop there i think down further
KRS|Gotyawallet: been real unstable lately
BingoBoingo: KRS|Gotyawallet: How much were you watching BTC this spring in the period immediately after it broke $80
kanzure: i thought sugarcrm was ran by a company that sells sugarcrm instances
kanzure: are you just banking on "i can integrate btc faster than whoever is running sugarcrm's parent company at the moment can"
kanzure: like, the obvious downside here is that you would have to actually support sugarcrm instances..... yeah.
BingoBoingo: I'm really not worried about how thin BTC orderbooks are contributing to this present volatility because generally the asks side (aka people with BTC) tends to be better at bluffing than the bids are.

mircea_popescu: haha well put sbp
sbp: somebody needs to work on a media friendly name for µBTC
sbp: we'll never need nBTC, unless they split the Satoshi
sbp: media friendly, not 4chan friendly
mircea_popescu: o o sorry my bad
FabianB: why not skip all the steps inbetween and go with satoshi
pankkake: I've seen millibit
mircea_popescu: tbh, this mili and micro stuff is nonsense.
mircea_popescu: we will use the 1/10000 unit
mircea_popescu: and the two sub units the cent and the millionth
mircea_popescu: bitcoin is base 2 not base 3.
nubbins`: why don't we just cobble together a series of retarded nonsensical names for all the different decimal places and use that?
nubbins`: 100 glaps to the quighorc, etc

sbp: blockchain notes should be called Sassamen

FabianB: chinese (and i think japanese too) has words and characters for 10^4 and 10^8, none for 10^6 though, so much better for satoshi/btc
nubbins`: otherwise it's just another thing i don't have space for
nubbins`: myriads
mircea_popescu: FabianB say them ?
FabianB: in pinyin 10^4 is 'wan' and 10^8 'yi'

nubbins`: 30억 satoshi
mircea_popescu: i likethe sound of that
mircea_popescu: so 亿 is wan, which is the w part, the misshapen 1 or the insecure 2 ?
nubbins`: i agree on the half-length tho, i've been mentally digesting satoshi-denominated amounts this way to make sense of them for a while now
nubbins`: chinese characters make no sense to me
FabianB: mircea_popescu: no, 亿 is 'yi' (10^8)
nubbins`: korean is very logical, each block is a syllable composed of up to 3 sounds
FabianB: wan is 10k and 万

mircea_popescu: you can get armor good enough to render any handheld firearm useless.
truffles: boom headshot
nubbins`: but does it fit over your face?
mircea_popescu: notice that the serious bank robbers etc use very heavy assault weapons
asciilifeform: armor is a tricky business
mircea_popescu: and that only worked up to about 2005 or so

asciilifeform: the people to whom the question applies have a rather lukewarm enthusiasm for it.

truffles: "patrol officers at the time were typically armed with a 9mm or .40 caliber pistol on their person, with a 12-gauge shotgun available in their cars. Phillips and Matasareanu carried fully automatic rifles and wore body armor. Since most handgun calibers cannot penetrate body armor, patrol officers had a significant disadvantage until SWAT arrived with equivalent firepower; they also
truffles: appropriated several semi-automatic rifles from a nearby firearms dealer to help even the odds. "
mircea_popescu: yes well, the story is this : two robbers with body armor did more damage to the city policeman pension and health insurance funds than would have been the case if they just let them keep the stolen money.
truffles: seems like its solved all round
mircea_popescu: even if you maange to print a gun, you will print a useless gun.
mircea_popescu: you need something very powerful to be able to do anything with it.

the20year: Pretty easy to make a firearm out of supplies from tesco
asciilifeform: wait till people remember that kevlar (and other fiber armour) is useless against: arrows.
benkay: dahaha
the20year: asciilifeform: most current plates use ceramic which disperses the kenetic energy over a wide area, avoiding blunt tramua. Small arms fire has an amazingly low amount of kenetic energy compared to common measurements
the20year: asciilifeform: depends on which kind of kevlar vest you're talking about
mircea_popescu: also, it's easier to protect the head than the body.
mircea_popescu: bulletproof transparent rigid plastic was available before flexible stuff was.
mircea_popescu: the20year in fact, the kinetic energy of the bullet is roughly equal to the kinetic energy of the recoil.
asciilifeform: take simple example. ordinary ak round, ~2kJ (muzzle)
mircea_popescu: consequently, there's a limit to how heavy a round can be fired from the hand
asciilifeform: let's say 1kJ on impact, for the sake of argument.
mircea_popescu: and the thing is, armor has surpassed this minimum. handheld firearms are not particularly useful these days
mircea_popescu: (which is the REAL reason for the move towards tasers, not the feigned desire to avoid casualties)
asciilifeform: 1kJ applied to a head with impenetrable armor -> neck trauma
asciilifeform: unless you're willing to wear the equivalent of a 19th century diving suit
benkay: all this fighting talk is causing thoughts of chumpatrons based on armor and weapons
asciilifeform: the phuture, if one insists, is in the self-aiming rifle.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform depends a lot on the angle.
asciilifeform: like those pocket cameras that highlight faces.
mircea_popescu: people regularly take kj's to the head in most sports.
deadweasel: i think we should test these theories. somebody get me some armor, I'll youtube the experiments per your instructions. Only have 9mm and .40 for testing
deadweasel: i'm not sure if I'm joking
deadweasel: only one way to find out
mircea_popescu: deadweasel you can always use a dummy
mircea_popescu: like the car crash dummies
deadweasel: boring
mircea_popescu: not that this hasn't been done.
deadweasel: so boring
asciilifeform: phun phact: archduke ferdinand is said to have worn an early bulletproof vest.
asciilifeform: at the time of his death.
deadweasel: watching body armor video tests can be mesmerizing
asciilifeform: headshot
the20year: You could do what the military and FBI does....
the20year: But who cares about pre-existing data? Everyone has to discover for themselves ,right?
truffles: hide?
mircea_popescu: <the20year> But who cares about pre-existing data? Everyone has to discover for themselves ,right? <<< qft.
deadweasel: qft? quite fucking true?
mircea_popescu: quoted for truth
truffles: quoted for
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform wasn't he killed by a bomb ?
the20year: No, he was shot close range with a little pistol
deadweasel: i'm puncy as hell today, somebody shoot me already
mircea_popescu: o it was the russian guy that was bombed.
asciilifeform: legend has it that submarine architects were once made to take a trip to max depth before the machine would be paid for.
asciilifeform: no reason why this shouldn't apply to armour makers.
the20year: don't you look at armor tests?
the20year: Some armor makers do put their armor on and get shot, i wouldn't due it due to spall, but some believe that much in their product
asciilifeform: arms vs. armour is a classic race that the latter tends to lose. witness 'reactive armour' on tank.
asciilifeform: the pill against it: round with two warheads.
the20year: It's usually a endless cycle of bigger armor being beaten by a bigger gun , IE ww2 f or instance
asciilifeform: or simple good aim (hit same spot twice.0
mircea_popescu: "while Mătăsăreanu's chest armor even successfully withstood a hit from a SWAT operator's AR-15"
mircea_popescu: no, srsly.
asciilifeform: it will be interesting to see reactive armor built for a man
asciilifeform: rather than tank
the20year: Most rifles won't make it through AR500 steel plate
the20year: It's stupidly easy to make body armor that will withstand most conventional rifle ammo, granted it's quite heavy
asciilifeform: the20year: ask a soldier how much he'd like to wear plate mail.
the20year: Why the heck would anyone want reactive armor on their body? The concussion would kill you when it activated
the20year: Well, most wear ceramic armor that's stronger than AR500, so many do
the20year: I know my brother in law did, when he was in iraq
asciilifeform: there are men strong enough to run about, climb, etc. in plate mail, yes.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform let me find you that quote re armor.
the20year: The average soldier carries about 100lbs of gear into battle, so 20lb of armor isn't a big deal. thus why the US military is testing powered armor
truffles: theyve got drones now
asciilifeform: i attended an interesting talk once by a concussion expert
the20year: And still want boots on the ground, so....
the20year: Drones can always be defeated
truffles: they look intimidating
truffles: the massive ones with legs
the20year: Oh well
mircea_popescu: From the foundation of the city till the reign of the Emperor Gratian, the foot wore cuirasses and helmets. But negligence and sloth having by degrees introduced a total relaxation of discipline, the soldiers began to think their armor too heavy, as they seldom put it on. They first requested leave from the Emperor to lay aside the cuirass and afterwards the helmet. In consequence of this, our troops in their engagemen
mircea_popescu: ts with the Goths were often overwhelmed with their showers of arrows. Nor was the necessity of obliging the infantry to resume their cuirasses and helmets discovered, notwithstanding such repeated defeats, which brought on the destruction of so many great cities. Troops, defenseless and exposed to all the weapons of the enemy, are more disposed to fly than fight. What can be expected from a foot-archer without cuirass
mircea_popescu: or helmet, who cannot hold at once his bow and shield; or from the ensigns whose bodies are naked, and who cannot at the same time carry a shield and the colors? The foot soldier finds the weight of a cuirass and even of a helmet intolerable. This is because he is so seldom exercised and rarely puts them on.
asciilifeform: he had a computer model which explained why certain - helmeted - men ended up with brain damage, while grunts in the same vehicle, sans helmet, didn't.
asciilifeform: the helmet focused the shock wave.
asciilifeform: not that armour is worthless - simply that reality is a complicated place.
truffles: or we're not that advance yet
mircea_popescu: reality may be a complicated place, but the tactical utility of printed guns is still purely imaginary.
the20year: correct
mircea_popescu: even if you get them to shoot safely, you're far far away from them shooting energetically enough to count
the20year: The real use for 3d printed guns (in the US at least) is to make ones that utilize the homebuilding law so they're not on paperwork
asciilifeform: printed crossbow could conceivably be of some use.
the20year: Why is printing important?
mircea_popescu: it's much easier to make a crossvbow than to print one
benkay: i am more convinced than i was an hour ago on the printable guns thing
the20year: tabletop CnC is cheap and you can make just about any firearm you want with one
asciilifeform: some people seems to fetishize the process of 'push a button without thinking'
mircea_popescu: i could make you one within the hour, and teach you to make one in a day
the20year: and lathes and milling machines have existed for 100 years
asciilifeform: which is why 3d printer is a mass topic at all
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform ya well those people also have nil tactical utility-value.
the20year: Think about it , the first belt fed machine gun was made in the late 1800s, do you think that the technology to make it has magically disappeared?
asciilifeform: in afghanistan, in africa, blacksmiths build perfectly good ak clones with hand tools.
asciilifeform: not rocket surgery here.
the20year: COrrect

asciilifeform: modern ammunition, on the other hand, requires industry.
the20year: How so
mircea_popescu: you can mix your own powder and make your own bullets just fine
asciilifeform: certainly, for a musket.
mircea_popescu: just reuse the casings :D
mircea_popescu: they did it in fallout!
the20year: Brass casings are reusable, gunpowder can be made cheaply/effectiely from easy to procure chemcicals , the bullet is the easiest part itself to mak
the20year: *make
benkay: yes but xbows
benkay: i am a convince.
mircea_popescu: the20year he has a point tho, in the sense of brass casingsd are reusable for a finite number of shots.
asciilifeform: primers are tricky
the20year: Plus i'm not aware of any country that has made brass cases illegal
the20year: Not exactly
the20year: Casings can last over 50 times if you download the ammo, which you will be doing anyway with homemade powder
mircea_popescu: over 50 times is finite.
the20year: Primers are easy to make, the chemical composition is 150 years old
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [NEOBEE] 540 @ 0.003 = 1.62 BTC [+] {2}
the20year: Well, if you want infinite, then just make your own cases
asciilifeform: if you're in a real bind, you might want to go with liquid propellant and electrical priming.
mircea_popescu: which requires some industry. is all i was saying.
the20year: Why? conventional powder and primer compound is cheap and effective
the20year: If by industry you mean a guy with a set of presses and punches, sure
asciilifeform: cheap is a tricky concept. a plastic fork is cheap, until it isn't, and is entirely unobtainable
the20year: But remember, during WW2 most ammo in the USSR was being made by giving children the tools to do it
asciilifeform: if you have to make it with your own hands
the20year: asciilifeform: $50 will get you enough priming compound to load 10,000 rounds of ammunition
asciilifeform: today. in a civilized place.
mircea_popescu: ha, since i was going through old tomes, look what a gem i found :
mircea_popescu: "Although these men differ in customs and language from those with whom they have taken refuge, and are unaccustomed too, if I may say so, to the nauseous odor of the bodies and clothing of the barbarians, yet they prefer the strange life they find there to the injustice rife among the Romans."
mircea_popescu: " So you find men passing over everywhere, now to the Goths, now to the Bagaudae, or whatever other barbarians have established their power anywhere ... We call those men rebels and utterly abandoned, whom we ourselves have forced into crime. For by what other causes were they made Bagaudae save by our unjust acts, the wicked decisions of the magistrates, the proscription and extortion of those who have turned the publ
mircea_popescu: ic exactions to the increase of their private fortunes and made the tax indictions their opportunity for plunder?"
the20year: If this is all theoretical then, just stock up on ammo if you live in the US , or reloading components
asciilifeform: the20year: this is a tremendously-popular hobby here.
the20year: what hobby? WHere is here?
the20year: Easy to buy ammo and stock up in the US
the20year: There's absolutely no reason in worrying about all this theoretical stuff, just buy cheap and stack deep if you live here
asciilifeform: the original discussion was, i think, about what could in principle be made with one's own hands, out of commonly-available raw materials
the20year: Then your answer is - Submachine guns
the20year: If you want to go the firearms route
asciilifeform: the gun is the easy part
asciilifeform: that was the point
the20year: Ammo isn't too bad if you want to set up the process ,or just make a muzzleloader
asciilifeform: muzzle-loading submachine gun?
the20year: just a muzzleloader
asciilifeform: point remains, that the military significance of 3d printer is small, while that of the hand file and forge, remains great.
the20year: Correct
the20year: The Sten and PPS-43 were both primarily made by children during ww2, and they are still being used around the world today
the20year: Both at a cost of just a few dollar (equivilent) at the time
asciilifeform: right. 'open bolt' schema is easy to manufacture, and for that (among other reasons) is forbidden in the u.s.
the20year: Up until 1980 :D
the20year: Technically, if you can find a open-bolt gun that was made prior to 1980 it's still legal
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [HMF] 30 @ 0.02419965 = 0.726 BTC [+] {3}
asciilifeform: i recall reading that they're bought and sold rather like famous paintings.
asciilifeform: with traceable pedigree, etc.
the20year: It's easy to find and date them based on serial numbers, sales price is quite high though, around $2,000 for a tec-9 or 22 that sold for say $150 prior to 1980
asciilifeform: interesting
the20year: Same with guns manufactured prior to 1898 that aren't considered firearms anymore
the20year: Even though they might take modern cartridges
asciilifeform: how did it come about that they aren't considered arms?
the20year: That's just hte cutoff date
ozbot: Antique gun - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
the20year: I have a 1895 mauser that's an an absolutely awesome rifle
asciilifeform: this legal oddity rings a bell. i once wandered into an antique shop near wash. dc, and they had an Ottoman musket for sale. no paperwork, etc.
the20year: Anything prior to 1899 is legal , granted some states have other rules. Sadly the maxim and potato digger aren't covered
asciilifeform: potato digger?
ozbot: M1895 Colt-Browning machine gun - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
the20year: First US made machine gun
truffles: imagine if they had those back in the day
truffles: line up and spray
the20year: in what day?
the20year: They were used from the late 1800s through ww2
truffles: 1800s ?
the20year: Maxim is still being used today
truffles: ok 1600s
the20year: Well, in the 1700s you had the giardoni air rifle which was a rapid fire gun
asciilifeform: the one where the air bottle sometimes burst?
the20year: Yeah
asciilifeform: famous 'before their time' techno masterpiece...
the20year: Granted if you want to see what happens when you use line warfar against machine guns, just take a look at ww1
the20year: would have been no different than 1800s, 1700s, 1600s - massed infantry in static lines trying to take positions held by machine guns
asciilifeform: technologically-mismatched battles are a curious fetish among some people
asciilifeform: maxim against cavalry, 'drone' against rusty truck in afghanistan...
the20year: Sure, but if you're curious what happens, there's plenty of information out there on when it does ocurr
asciilifeform: maxim vs. zulu, perhaps most famously
the20year: Or italian cavalry in ww2 attacking soviet positions, a bayonette charge in iraq in 2004, the last usage of a sword in combat in vietnam , ect
asciilifeform: there are persistent rumours of a Polish ww2 lance charge against a tank column.
the20year: Rourkes drift comes pretty close to that
asciilifeform: for further anachronism value: chariots (albeit with maxim) saw plentiful action in the russian civil war.
mircea_popescu: a trained man with a sword is a better asset in close quarters than dudes with guns
the20year: Yeah
mircea_popescu: course that training is prohibitively expensive
the20year: Thus why police have the 21ft rule
asciilifeform: "an officer without a sword is improperly dressed"
mircea_popescu: so it's not really practical, from a strategic perspective. nevertheless...
ozbot: Jack Churchill - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
the20year: soldiers still carry bayonettes
mircea_popescu: the20year and don't know how to use them
the20year: Tell that to the scotts
mircea_popescu: i just meant generally.
the20year: I don't know , when i talked to a guy in 2003-4 about his time in Iraq, he seemed to indicate his unit trained with them. I do believe the marines still train
mircea_popescu: people all over the us train in reading and writing.
mircea_popescu: so what of it ?
nubbins`: ^ leel
nubbins`: point of the day
the20year: Eh, i'd bet money there are plenty that still could use them effectively
mircea_popescu: no argument there.
mircea_popescu: an army however is about the weakest not the strongest link
asciilifeform: if i recall, bayonet is the original 'MAD' weapon
mircea_popescu: (which is why the us army has been evolving towards smaller and smaller units as the quality of recruits sunk)
asciilifeform: in that most bayonet charges did not end with a mass perforation, but with one side fleeing
the20year: Yeah, that's been the US tradition for a while though
the20year: except in vietnam with the US army
mircea_popescu: so in the most recent rng tests for the cardano we now see Entropy = 7.999926 bits per byte.
