BingoBoingo: moiety: Knights dun move that diretion...
moiety: you are such a good hostess after a few vodkas
bitcoinpete: BingoBoingo: My skepticism was confusing to most of them
moiety: i thought they went L, is that bishops
BingoBoingo: moiety: They do move in an L, but only that one size of L.
moiety: ive been taught it wrong then. i have been trying to move c1 to d3.
BingoBoingo: The L moiety is defined such that your knight at b1 could move to a3, c3, or d2
bitcoinpete: BingoBoingo: Though I was able to show one that the vagaries of language are to contracts what kraft is to dinner
BingoBoingo: moiety: The piece you should have on c1 is a Bishop
herbijudlestoids: i feel like this is the best chess game ever
moiety: aw fuck i see whati got wrong
moiety: lol herbi!
herbijudlestoids: seriously
moiety: you're watching me learn here
BingoBoingo: I'm only getting drunker
bitcoinpete: I quite like that there's a chess game going on. Haven't noticed one before when reading the logs
BingoBoingo: bitcoinpete: They happen sporadically
moiety: as long as you aren't getting more annoyed thats fine
BingoBoingo: moiety: As long as you don't press for speed chess like truffles I'm fine
bitcoinpete: This is a truly fascinating corner of the net
herbijudlestoids: moiety: whats that saying..."never argue with an idiot, theyll drag you down to their level and beat you with experience" ...i feel like if anyone reasonably tried to match BingoBoingo they would lose...but you are winning at lulz here
BingoBoingo: bitcoinpete: It is indeed
moiety: lolol moiety and speed chess in the same sentence
moiety: well thats a win in my book herbi! :D
BingoBoingo: herbijudlestoids: I lose all of the time in chess
moiety: not today!
bitcoinpete: BingoBoingo: I've been reading the logs for the last few days after reading Trilema for the last 8-9 months. It's about I made my way here
bitcoinpete: BingoBoingo: I've been reading the logs for the last few days after reading Trilema for the last 8-9 months. It's about I made my way here
herbijudlestoids: bitcoinpete: do you know that your client is repeating lines?
BingoBoingo: Sweet Bitcoinpete, nice to see someone does the reading
moiety: g1-h4
BingoBoingo: ?g1-h3????
moiety: i'm saving for trilema, i haven't wanted a subscription before
moiety: ok ok hang on!
BingoBoingo: Those L's only come in one size
bitcoinpete: herbijudlestoids: did not… Any client suggestions for mac?
bitcoinpete: herbijudlestoids: did not… Any client suggestions for mac?
moiety: oh yeah i meant 3 not 4
herbijudlestoids: bitcoinpete: what are you using?
moiety: i'mbad for hopping extra, sorry
herbijudlestoids: i would always recommend irssi, but its personal preference
bitcoinpete: herbijudlestoids: Lingo. It was free
bitcoinpete: herbijudlestoids: Lingo. It was free
BingoBoingo: bitcoinpete: Maybe try a different client?
herbijudlestoids: bitcoinpete: try this one ...or xchat is pretty standard gui
BingoBoingo: Xchat is nice
MisterE: so they begrudgingly passed a debt ceiling bill
moiety: c3 - b4?
bitcoinpete: herbijudlestoids: much obliged
BingoBoingo: moiety: b4 took c3
MisterE: chess?
herbijudlestoids: MisterE: lol debt ceiling is a joke, right? considering QE to the tune of 80bn/month atm?
moiety: huh, i have a space
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 25250 @ 0.00087099 = 21.9925 BTC [+] {2}
MisterE: herbijudlestoids: yea they could get their shit together and not need to raise it
MisterE: plenty of cash flowing in
herbijudlestoids: lel no they couldnt
MisterE: cur foreign aid and military
herbijudlestoids: budget deficit is > trade deficit
moiety: a3-a4
moiety: damnit i thought i stole a manny there
herbijudlestoids: MisterE: the debt is too large to be reasonably be paid back. it will be defaulted on or inflated away (stealth default) or similar.
herbijudlestoids: there is no hiding from the mathematics of that fact
MisterE: what they couldn't do is make the cuts they should / need to make because it would put a bunch of peopl eout of work
MisterE: yea thats why they started letting the dollar weaken
moiety: i'm back to smuxi, but i would really like to get BitchX going, i just couldn't get it to work
herbijudlestoids: MisterE: you do realise that foreign aid in toto, including military stuff, is 1% of the US budget?
herbijudlestoids: moiety: irssi > bitchx imo :)
BingoBoingo: moiety: Try Xchat with the SASL plugin
MisterE: that may be direct foregn cash aid but I doubt that covers military
BingoBoingo: moiety: Also cxd2+
moiety: ive got xchat. whinges at me all the time and smuix is cuter. will look up irssi herbi!
moiety: ah thanks!
herbijudlestoids: MisterE: ....2011 total military and economic assitance 50bn
MisterE: well if it is really that small then start whacking away at the defense and DHS / surveillance state budgets
moiety: oi no thanks, you took my dude there didnt you
MisterE: no way, they send just that much to Israel alone every year
BingoBoingo: moiety: Of course
MisterE: let alone Egypt, etc.
moiety: i'm telling mircea on you
mircea_popescu: bloctoc it doesn't seem to be popular. why do you ask ?
herbijudlestoids: MisterE: you are mistaken.
herbijudlestoids: MisterE: $3bn/annum to israel
mircea_popescu: bitcoinpete do i know you from twittr ?
BingoBoingo: moiety: I'd be more worried if you told kakobrekla
MisterE: hmm I wonder how much $3bn could do for schools
moiety: why?
BingoBoingo: moiety: Because kakobrekla runs assbot
herbijudlestoids: MisterE: a lot probably. $3bn is huge in meatspace. dunno if you heard about this (just 15mn)
MisterE: but thats a lot lower than I expected where are you getting numbers from?
bitcoinpete: member:mircea_popescu: If you remember me, I'd be flattered :D
herbijudlestoids: MisterE: where are *you* getting *your* numbers from?
moiety: i haven't really noticed assbot, i saw an ozbot.. and i like gribble a lot!
MisterE: I haven't been putting any out heh
herbijudlestoids: you said the US sends $50bn a year to israel.
bloctoc: just trying to find out if it's the real deal. I like the fact that certain operations get more hard coded over time and high use. It sounds a lot like how neural pathways get created. Other than that, it's pretty much the same group of folks evangelizing today that were evangelizing ripple last year.
moiety: bf4
bitcoinpete: mircea_popescu: I kept the same screen name with exactly that in mind
moiety: scrap that i dont know where my own men are
BingoBoingo: moiety: I'll post a pic
mircea_popescu: why's bitcoinpete saying things twice why's bitcoinpete saying things twice
moiety: f1-b5 im sure i can have
herbijudlestoids: MisterE: its not that im disagreeing with you on certain issues, but its impotant to have the correct information.
MisterE: Since 1974, Israel has received nearly $100 billion in assistance. OK thats less than I thought
MisterE: yea
herbijudlestoids: for example, because you have incorrect information, you believe the US can fix its problem, whereas i feel the monetary issue in the US has reached escape velocity
BingoBoingo: moiety: look at first
herbijudlestoids: we now await the return to atmo
MisterE: well given the current mindset I agree
Mats_cd03: bitcoinpete: irccloud is great
MisterE: but we can all tighten our belts and balance our checkbooks if there is a real desire
BingoBoingo: moiety: You are in check so addressing that is priority 1
MisterE: Americans are too spoiled so will let it all go to hell instead
herbijudlestoids: MisterE: *we* have nothing to do with it, when the US Federal Reserve is QEing to the tune of 80bn/month
herbijudlestoids: they are printing cash to meet obligations and dumping it on your front lawn.
ozbot: Exclusive: EU executive sees personal savings used to plug long-term financing gap
mircea_popescu: eu wants to steal pensions too!
MisterE: oh that's just the latest face of their printing presses running at full speed
MisterE: before QE it was direct cash injections into banks
MisterE: etc.
bitcoinpete: Mats_cd03: merci
herbijudlestoids: the point is that if everyone tightened their belt it has no relevance if on the other side of the field they are spewing tickets.
herbijudlestoids: make sense or not?
herbijudlestoids: austerity will not solve this problem
mircea_popescu: <bloctoc> " pretty much the same group of folks evangelizing today that were evangelizing ripple last year." and therein you have your answer.
mircea_popescu: same useless pile of crap, same troop of vultures, same spiel.
MisterE: yea it probaby has to go to hell for anything to ever be done about the fed
herbijudlestoids: just like putting a freeze on banker salaries does not stop certain banks from being giant black holes for capital
BingoBoingo: moiety: Study the board. You are down three pawns. I'm going to the garage to smoke a cigarette. Use these 5-7 minutes to come up with a plan.
MisterE: *sigh* humans suck
mircea_popescu: except this time they had the sense to stick to altspace and so i couldn't care less
KRS-One: i resemble that remark
herbijudlestoids: MisterE: hell or not i dunno...we are just talking about the obligations of the US Government otherwise called a dollar.
moiety: aww fuck man thats pretty different from mine
MisterE: which is not worth the paper it's printed on
MisterE: backed up by a stack of IOUs
mircea_popescu: herbijudlestoids austerity would in fact have solved the problem, back in FY 2009-2010, while creating ohter problems.
mircea_popescu: meanwhile i agree, it's escaped.
herbijudlestoids: MisterE: those two statements have *always* been true, at least since 1970s
MisterE: actually dollars are rags not paper
herbijudlestoids: mircea_popescu: yes sure.
MisterE: yea true
herbijudlestoids: mircea_popescu: i dont disagree that GFC was a chance to rebalance
MisterE: there was a chance in the late 00s
moiety: well bloody b1 - d2 for a start bingo lol
mircea_popescu: herbijudlestoids just, there wasn't who to go on tv and say "you can either all starve and your kids can have a country to live in or else we continue derping around and we might as well just go buy the rope now. so i've chosen for you to starve, stfu and eat it with the big spoon"
moiety: aw herbi, hes got tons o my bits
herbijudlestoids: my feeling is that we will just continue to repeat the current boom/bust cycle until one of the cycles kills the dollar as a global reserve asset and the euro takes over
MisterE: mircea_popescu: American's can't handle that
BingoBoingo: moiety: I'm still smoking. CHeck the moves so far on this board
mircea_popescu: herbijudlestoids not one of. this is it.
herbijudlestoids: mircea_popescu: highly likely.
mircea_popescu: MisterE their problem, cause nobody's askin what you can handle.
MisterE: they will be in the street with their guns, serious civil unrest
MisterE: they are spoiled
herbijudlestoids: i dont want to make predictions in this discussion, leave it to you
mircea_popescu: perfect.
MisterE: thats why I left 8-years ago and now live in Asia
herbijudlestoids: just trying to put my 2c out there
herbijudlestoids: 2satoshis even
MisterE: heh
mircea_popescu: herbijudlestoids i was gonna say, you dun got 2 bitcents :D
herbijudlestoids: butthole, i do, i got just over 2
herbijudlestoids: i got 0.02BTC
MisterE: I tried to buy $100 of BTC at $5 and the site was all funky I could not figure how to get my money transfered in and so I let it go
MisterE: like 2-years ago
mircea_popescu: o hey wd!
mircea_popescu: btc was 30 2 years ago
MisterE: well, whenever it was 5
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: BTC was 30 three years ago, but not 2
mircea_popescu: fuck me no it wasn't
MisterE: ^ sounds more right
mircea_popescu: whoa how quickly we forget.
MisterE: err less wrong
MisterE: not us losers :p
MisterE: we dont forget
mircea_popescu: no, you're right, it was about 5 two years ago
BingoBoingo: BTC first hit $31 on the Adrian CHen Silk Road Story.
BingoBoingo: And two years ago was $5-11 because GLBSE scam and BTCST scam
BingoBoingo: Most of summer 2012 BTC was around 11 until the Pirate default.
BingoBoingo: Then it went down to $4
bitcoinpete: MisterE: At least you finally bought in. I get a kick out of people who were similarly unwilling to get past the exchange rigamarole and now say it's too expensive.
MisterE: pfft the upside is still exponential
BingoBoingo: bitcoinpete: DO you know Paul Graham.
MisterE: plus I been buying the dips
jcpham: where can i get bitcoins?
bitcoinpete: BingoBoingo: nope
jcpham: do i mine them?
BingoBoingo: bitcoinpete: Shame, know any other VC's?
MisterE: If you live in a big city
bitcoinpete: BingoBoingo: Not really, never needed to
jcpham: i trolling this chat is retarded to me
jcpham: i love hearing history lessons fromstrangers
BingoBoingo: bitcoinpete: If you find any I have a standing offer on my blog selling bullshit filering services.
jcpham: basically i hang out in these channels to scoop up your free info
MisterE: invoice is in the mail jcpham
BingoBoingo: lol jcpham that's how I finally made /.
herbijudlestoids: jcpham: nobody minds, better you get it here than elsewhere. if it was secret the chan'd be +k and half wouldnt bein here
jcpham: i'm just jaded
MisterE: actually expanding the community benefits us all
mircea_popescu: jcpham just a little trouble coping is all >D
herbijudlestoids: i have never met anyone as jaded as the likes of mircea_popescu or BingoBoingo lol
mircea_popescu: how am i jaded!
MisterE: jaded how?
herbijudlestoids: dude you are post jaded
BingoBoingo: I wonder that as well.
MisterE: lol
mircea_popescu: MisterE now do it in a pesci voice
MisterE: post-jaded
BingoBoingo: I am constantly in a state of wonder
bitcoinpete: BingoBoingo: haha k
mircea_popescu: herbijudlestoids what's you mean by jaded ?
jcpham: no fucks were given that day mircea_popescu
herbijudlestoids: mircea_popescu: people who have seen enough to be unimpressed
jcpham: except every day
mircea_popescu: o that. i guess i'm jaded then.
jcpham: i've seen every bitcoin scam and they just repeat
herbijudlestoids: how do i call urban dictionary?
herbijudlestoids: ;;urban jaded
BingoBoingo: herbijudlestoids: As I can tell the difference is MP has been shot where as I have merely had a shotgun pointed inches from my face
gribble: Error: "urban" is not a valid command.
BingoBoingo: ;;ud jaded
gribble: | jaded. The end result of having a steady flow of negative experiences, disappointment, and unfulfillment fed into a person where they get to the point where their ...
ozbot: Urban Dictionary: jaded
mircea_popescu: that'd be a little different :)
herbijudlestoids: hmm. i was hoping for a different definition
herbijudlestoids: hey yo i got a question about the baits!
herbijudlestoids: forgot, thhought of it last night
mircea_popescu: o look, she's all laided.
herbijudlestoids: why does ozbot not pull from
BingoBoingo: herbijudlestoids: The baits have two cans, add a string and you too can be Gox
bitcoinpete: *sigh* I have a feeling I'm going to be spending more time here. Too early to tell whether that's a good thing but I'm inexplicably drawn in by this circus
herbijudlestoids: BingoBoingo: im making my own exchange. with blackjack and hookers.
herbijudlestoids: bitcoinpete: tell me about it
MisterE: yea bitcoinpete the rest of the BTC channels are lame
BingoBoingo: bitcoinpete: You can just lurk, I mean look at the lsit online. It is the way of most people. IRC nearly demands it.
bitcoinpete: never tried the others
bitcoinpete: trilema pointed here
bitcoinpete: no one else pointed anywhere else so here I am
mircea_popescu: herbijudlestoids hopefully australia has better hookers than what they found in miami
BingoBoingo: You can try #bitcoin-otc if you like self induced concussions
mircea_popescu: o look, i have a captive audience.
MisterE: mircea_popescu: they do but their coke sucks
herbijudlestoids: wut MisterE sed
BingoBoingo: MisterE: Give East StL a try
herbijudlestoids: coke in london is what... $50/g?
bitcoinpete: mircea: just like you always dreamed
mircea_popescu: til that the sole path for bilirubin elimination is through the uridine diphosphate glucuronosyltransferase isoform 1A1
herbijudlestoids: coke in sydney, half the purity of that of london is $300/g
MisterE: haha
herbijudlestoids: mircea_popescu: you dont research your poop enough
mircea_popescu: herbijudlestoids actually... there's a trilema article on the subject
BingoBoingo: I tell you all magnesium citrate is a hell of a way to pass a drug test
mircea_popescu: ;;google trilema de ce e cacatul maro
gribble: Trilenciclopedia pe Trilema - Un blog de Mircea Popescu.: <>; Martie 2010 pe Trilema - Un blog de Mircea Popescu.: <>
mircea_popescu: literally, inquires and explains why shit's brown
bitcoinpete: well whaddya know
herbijudlestoids: oh...ok..well i already inquired and got the explanation to that q long ago :)
mircea_popescu: im slow.
bitcoinpete: I don't remember that from biochem 200 or physl 2xx.
MisterE: what language is that site in?
bitcoinpete: And my mom didn't teach me romanian...
BingoBoingo: I haven't had a bio class since 7th grade.
herbijudlestoids: almost at 300ATC :)
MisterE: Romanian?
mircea_popescu: romanian.
herbijudlestoids: ;;calc 62700/2621404453
gribble: 2.39184761925e-05
herbijudlestoids: ^ current ATC/BTC difficulty implied price
bitcoinpete: I had two romanian architects living with me all summer
herbijudlestoids: ;;calc 31350/2911847381
gribble: 1.07663609723e-05
mircea_popescu: you run an architect boarding house ?
herbijudlestoids: ^^ next diff implied price
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: On Doge terms that is 20k satoshis
bitcoinpete: in the off-season
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo e-05 would be 5 zeroes. so that's 3 digit satoshi price
bitcoinpete: they loved Jaime Oliver and cooked up a storm
bitcoinpete: My townhouse had a new stink every night
mircea_popescu: all romanians worth the name can cook.
herbijudlestoids: gribble reports it in 'hard-for-retards-to-understand' format... ; 62700/2621404453 ~0.00002391847619250229
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: But Altcoin rules, ignore 3 of the zeros like Doge does.
bitcoinpete: The "husband" would spend hours slaving over the stove while the "wife" would read
mircea_popescu: bitcoinpete now that's emancipated. were they in their 20s ?
herbijudlestoids: i bought some books before i got sick...graham greene "our man in havana" (i own almost all his novels now) and flaubert "madame bovary"
herbijudlestoids: anyone read flaubert?
BingoBoingo: You know who is emaciated, those creepy ass ski jumpers
bitcoinpete: mid-late 20s
BingoBoingo: herbijudlestoids: I did and then I buried it with crap
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 6350 @ 0.0008717 = 5.5353 BTC [+] {2}
bitcoinpete: also big fans of QI, Top Gear, and America's Next Top Model
herbijudlestoids: how can QI be put in the same line with Top Gear and Americas Next Top Model
BingoBoingo: bitcoinpete: DO you have Hulu where you are at?
herbijudlestoids: BingoBoingo: appreciate the review ;)
BingoBoingo: herbijudlestoids: Well I ask about Hulu because Appilacian Outlaws is the best reality show for understanding Bitcoin.
herbijudlestoids: haha i was talking about flaubert!
herbijudlestoids: dude how drunk are you
herbijudlestoids: youre approaching vex on sat night levels
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 15700 @ 0.00086675 = 13.608 BTC [-] {3}
BingoBoingo: herbijudlestoids: I'm trying to talk to bitcoinpete about tv shows. I am barely drunk.
BingoBoingo: herbijudlestoids: If you think I am so intoxicated are you up for a game after this one with moiety is over?
bitcoinpete: BingoBoingo: I don't have Hulu. Just got Netflixes
herbijudlestoids: no, you owe me one discussion about turtle F2F, retroshare and why you use neither.
BingoBoingo: herbijudlestoids: Because anonymity is over rated
herbijudlestoids: although i did learn today that retroshares routing algorithm is in fact inspired by turtle
herbijudlestoids: its F2F, not anonymous?
BingoBoingo: turtle is decent for a private net.
BingoBoingo: But on public nets you have to account for the meta-NSA
BingoBoingo: meta-NSA has the solution to all crypto in a drawer
BingoBoingo: The only way to deal with meta-NSA is to invite them to lick your balls
herbijudlestoids: can you pls clarify, private net == LAN? or private net == F2F VPN
BingoBoingo: Private net is a net where you know all participants.
herbijudlestoids: i dont think turtle/retroshare is designed as anything but...definitely not for public net
BingoBoingo: Turtle routing is great for that. You can all watch 12 years an Oscar winnrar on that
mrkent: Anyone know where the ASIC Miner direct share spreadsheet is?
BingoBoingo: mrkent: I dunno that such a thing exists
herbijudlestoids: BingoBoingo: so the reason you dont use it? got no friends?
mrkent: BingoBoingo, how do people trade direct shares?
BingoBoingo: herbijudlestoids: Nah.
BingoBoingo: mrkent: Talk to fry'd kitty
BingoBoingo: moiety: Your move again
BingoBoingo: herbijudlestoids: The reason to dislike that stuff is IRL friends are too cool for internet crimes
moiety: d2-c4
mrkent: herbijudlestoids, no i thought there was one where it displays which address owns which shares
BingoBoingo: Bg7xa1
herbijudlestoids: mrkent: sorry, cant help, i just pulled that off google
herbijudlestoids: BingoBoingo: yea fair enough. i also get the feeling that retroshare might not have the highest code quality
mrkent: np thanks
BingoBoingo: herbijudlestoids: I can't trust that the petty shit isn't backdoored from the start
BingoBoingo: I've got misdemeanor charges to still fight
moiety: thanks for making me homeless, prick
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 26398 @ 0.0008723 = 23.027 BTC [+] {2}
BingoBoingo: Can't just roll over and eat a fine. Have to convince that states attorney that if this is how he fight a misdemeanor a felony can't be worth prosecuting
herbijudlestoids: i was supposed to be in bed recuperating but who can sleep when the greatest chess match of all time is happening in -assets
BingoBoingo: moiety: It's fine, just maybe try going on the offensive for a change?
herbijudlestoids: BingoBoingo: stick it to the man!
BingoBoingo: herbijudlestoids: I've actually lost in this chan
moiety: :P
moiety: you know im kidding
BingoBoingo: moiety: I know, but seriously where is your aggression. You were white? Where are the whips?
moiety: oh i thought you thought i was being too agressive
BingoBoingo: moiety: No, It's like you have spent the entire game as an Olympic snowboarder is a green haze.
moiety: sounds good to me....
moiety: i can say it is much easier now i can see the board
BingoBoingo: moiety: Well you have two moves before things becomem hopeless.
moiety: go have another drink
BingoBoingo: moiety: Force me to do something other than end you.
BingoBoingo: shit, I only have 3 inches of Vodka left in this fifth
ozbot: imgur: the simple image sharer
moiety: h3-g5
moiety: omg did you see that lol
BingoBoingo: moiety: This is an anti Doge channel. The best Doge thing to come out of here was selling Sochi DOge skins to the slants.
moiety: im not particularly pro doge... really is everywhere is all.
BingoBoingo: moiety: And how can I be racist. I am black. You moved first trying to colonize my half of the board.
moiety: ive never seen anything in the centre of a letter on google results, its bizarre
herbijudlestoids: BingoBoingo: +1 for thinkpad, -999999999 for unity.
BingoBoingo: herbijudlestoids: Unity on FreeBSD ain't bad though.
moiety: and what did you just do
BingoBoingo: moiety: Bc3+
moiety: :s ness
moiety: nvm
herbijudlestoids: y...youre using unity on fbsd?
BingoBoingo: herbijudlestoids: I won't confirm or deny it. Maybe Open BSD, maybe NetBSD, maybe FreeBSD.
moiety: jeeves** not google
BingoBoingo: Unity is awfully portable though and better than GNOME Shell
BingoBoingo: I also don't much trust that false successor to gnome 2
herbijudlestoids: yea gnome3 stole my heart and then broke it
herbijudlestoids: iv been using xfce since
BingoBoingo: herbijudlestoids: Maybe you need an actual substance abuse problem like me. That might bring your mind to sense.
herbijudlestoids: how do you know i dont have one?
BingoBoingo: By substance I mean Bitcoin. An Aristotelian substance.
BingoBoingo: I have had so much and squandered so much.
herbijudlestoids: good save
BingoBoingo: Not a save herbijudlestoids, an actual meaning
BingoBoingo: Actual meaning refering to "is does something"
BingoBoingo: I really dunno what all the Unity hate is over anyways

herbijudlestoids: lel im enjoying myself but if for some reason you cbf to play anymore i am ok with it. what do you mean can only end one of two ways? all chess games can only end one of two ways?
herbijudlestoids: are you peering 80 moves into the future or something?
BingoBoingo: herbijudlestoids: No, they have three ways to end. This one ends with you winning or you accepting a draw.
BingoBoingo: No way in hell I win this one
BingoBoingo: That e4 pawn just messed me up.

BingoBoingo: herbijudlestoids: I set up a board on the floor. Usually I am good, but your e4 fucked me up.
BingoBoingo: You had the win early though
herbijudlestoids: i just assumed youre a savant playing in your mind
BingoBoingo: Nah, I am a drunk who actually set up a board on my floor
herbijudlestoids: BingoBoingo: usually playing chess off a screen really fucks me up and i suck at it, but i think i like that HTML5 one

herbijudlestoids: not specifically
herbijudlestoids: i thought the root was spanish/portugese
BingoBoingo: herbijudlestoids: It means ignorant, but because it sounds similar to the latin Negro 'Murica
herbijudlestoids: The variants neger and negar, derive from the Spanish and Portuguese word negro (black), and from the now-pejorative French n?gre (negro). Etymologically, negro, noir, n?gre, and nigger ultimately derive from nigrum, the stem of the Latin niger (black) (pronounced ['ni?er] which, in every other grammatical case, grammatical gender, and grammatical number besides nominative masculine singular, is nigr-, the r is tr
herbijudlestoids: the root is latin, niger == black.
herbijudlestoids: stems to nigrum (male), nigra (female) and from there to italian/french/spanish/portugese
BingoBoingo: herbijudlestoids: Latin and german are different root sources
herbijudlestoids: In the Colonial America of 1619, John Rolfe used negars in describing the African slaves shipped to the Virginia colony.[2] Later American English spellings, neger and neggar, prevailed in a northern colony, New York under the Dutch, and in metropolitan Philadelphia's Moravian and Pennsylvania Dutch communities; the African Burial Ground in New York City originally was known by the Dutch name "Begraafplaats van de

ThickAsThieves: herb i think ATC price isnt the lead, it is the follow

BingoBoingo: Last week 160 Satoshis per was nearly charity.
BingoBoingo: herbijudlestoids: Generally they don't buy the exchange's ask because this is Altcoin and they have WOT.

davout: benkay: i've never experienced that
mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves nah, but it sells very little porn.
mircea_popescu: benkay it does.
mircea_popescu: oops i mean davout it does.
mircea_popescu: chick has a tablet, can't be used for irc because apple has decided it will turn off devices. unless you root the shit you're stuck.
KRS-One: .bait
davout: mircea_popescu: yeah ios sucks, but on a powered laptop or on a desktop the wifi doesn't go just because the display goes off
davout: not sure about a laptop that's not plugged to the power
mircea_popescu: why the fuck would you run ios on anything but a tablet.
mircea_popescu: then again i guess who the fuck provisions vms from a tablet.
asciilifeform: if there's a widget other than phone/tablet that runs ios, this is news.
davout: mircea_popescu: yeah, irc on a tablet, bad idea, provisioning a vm on a tablet, that's too mainstream
mircea_popescu: you can't even type.
asciilifeform: some people use tablets as 'dumb terminals.'
mircea_popescu: so how do you produce a tilde and three dashes ? you dictate it /

mircea_popescu: how much is an apple kbd, 300 bucks ?
mircea_popescu: (no sarcasmo)

asciilifeform: takes standard 'bluetooth' kbd
davout: or 80
mircea_popescu: that should work then
davout: yeah, vim on an ipad with your bluetooth keyboard, now *that's* hip
mircea_popescu: seems for all the trouble you could have just had a dildo.

davout: asciilifeform: the macbook air gets pretty close
mircea_popescu: i knew this fellow who had his trunk always full. 1-200 loaded laptop batteries/
asciilifeform: not me. but people with certain odd habits (working in cafes, on the shitter, etc)
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: barely anything comes with removable batteries now.
mircea_popescu: apparently the best thing for a battery is for it to be charged, stored a week or two, discharged, recharged etc.
asciilifeform: depends on the cell chemistry
asciilifeform: Li cell wants to be kept ~70% full at all times, if i recall
asciilifeform: hates cycling; full discharge, even more.
mircea_popescu: didn't it have a memory effect ?
mircea_popescu: an you're supposed to fully draw it ?

benkay: yeah i got there eventually
kakobrekla: waterfalling -> put off the fire -> metalworking with cold metal
mircea_popescu: both the big jumps are simply switching to a different, more powerful, cheaper, easier to deploy aspect of the same principle

mircea_popescu: then a few months later i got the gift of bitcoin
mircea_popescu: and i never had to do this since.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform how you reason ?
asciilifeform: well, the whole concept, as i understand, is based on using a prng and disclosing seeds periodically.
mircea_popescu: yeah, but inasmuch as you rely in any fashion on blockchain generated numbers
asciilifeform: when using a trng, there is no way to mechanically prove that you are doing so
mircea_popescu: they're an actual rng
asciilifeform: any rng where a planet full of bozos contributes to the state is arguably questionable
mircea_popescu: no question
mircea_popescu: but questionable or not it is still a rng
asciilifeform: sort of like if a casino let the crowd piss on the roulette wheel.
mircea_popescu: yes but see
mircea_popescu: once you have an actual rng, there's tricks to fix it

mircea_popescu: the coal burning power plants release X mercury into atmosphere as part of their working.
mircea_popescu: ceteris paribus the halogen lamps reduce this to about .4 X
mircea_popescu: however they contain between .7 X and 2.2 X mercury in themselves.
mircea_popescu: so you know, instead of having that thing settle somewhere in the desert, it simply got moved in your kitchen.
mircea_popescu: this is the whole of the progress involved.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: you're thinking of 'fluorescent' tube, rather than halogen

asciilifeform: virtually no one gets to 'design a computer' now. (not apple, either.) they get to glue the same old crap together in mildly-different ways.
ThickAsThieves: it's long...
ThickAsThieves: about 11min he starts saying that
ThickAsThieves: and then gives some examples of things he's considering
asciilifeform: if fpga with published internal specs existed (as it did in 1994, say) but of modern proportions, this could change.

mircea_popescu: Add to the very narrow margins and very active competition the burden of regulatory infringement. Money changers are spending as it is now literally immense sums (in Bitcoin terms) to try and mostly comply with obscure and convoluted regulation, which they can’t avoid or ignore because they’re always stuck with one foot in fiat. In exchange for this draining expenditure they are receiving nothing at all, certainly
mircea_popescu: not the protection of their etatist overlords.
mircea_popescu: They’re not in fact receiving as much as recognition of status or effort, they find themselves in the untenable position of a poor immigrant who is spending all his wages and borrowing at unbearable, immigrant-ghetto rates to buy flowers and wine for some local beauty who barely even registers their desperation or even presence.

mircea_popescu: you're immune from it for a very soft yet very strong reason

mircea_popescu: that's a sailor. people who can sail a boat in some circumstances are sail management technicians or w.e
mircea_popescu: decimation that'd be the optimistic view as to the us' future.
decimation: like pot, the civil servants who run the states can smell the tax revenue
decimation: I know, but I'm contrary while I'm contrary
mircea_popescu: im not sayin' it's unlikely or anything, perfectly possible.
decimation: new york seems really serious about this bitlicense deal
mircea_popescu: the us turning into a sort of continent sized syria is however also quite possible.
decimation: Of course it would with all kinds of AML KYC rules but that's obvious
mircea_popescu: the only sane way to do that would be making a state agency which handles the aml kyc.
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [HMF] 10 @ 0.02636138 = 0.2636 BTC [-]
mircea_popescu: you get the license, the customer applies with the agency. you get the ok, you are legally immune
davout: mircea_popescu: why is that?
mircea_popescu: because you don't wish to be involved with or responsible of law enforcing.
mircea_popescu: you're a businessman not a policeman. let the policemen do their job.
decimation: If I'm right, then the next leg up on the BTC/USD is going to happen when the trillions of $ in retirement accounts start washing into BTC; via Gresham's law
mircea_popescu: what trillions ?
Apocalyptic: the trillions they see on their balance :)
davout: that how it works though, and it's the sad state of affairs where if you have any sort of financial license you *are* required to monitor activity, and pretty much be the police
Apocalyptic: not that it's real money or anything
mircea_popescu: davout so that's what new york may offer to convince me to ok their license bs :
davout: there's no such thing as a "ok you're kosher" kind of stamp
benkay: leave those jurisdictions, then.
mircea_popescu: if they take back enforcing, we can talk.
mircea_popescu: if they don't... there's nothing on the table.
mircea_popescu: i mnean sure, they can continue talking to the scammers and be scammed till they're happy and had enough.
Apocalyptic: davout, reminds me of your model actually
davout: mircea_popescu: what is it you said once about one party of a deal saying "that's the way it's gonna be" again ?
Apocalyptic: when essentially LW is the policemen and in charge of validating clients
davout: Apocalyptic: howso?
Apocalyptic: you stick to the btc stuff
mircea_popescu: davout aha ?

davout: Apocalyptic: just FTR LW has access to your EUR data, they have zero access to your BTC history and activity
decimation: yeah, but the way it works in the us is that you must have a custodian for your retirement account (tax free accrual)

decimation: you wrote a few days ago about the lunacy of a self-enforcing contract due to the context of language
decimation: yet there are those here who think the Constitution operates exactly in this way
decimation: Moldbug is more-or-less correct about the power that rules the us; it's the coordinated actions of the media, civil service, and academia (and all their attachments)
mircea_popescu: the media has no power.
mircea_popescu: the academia has... you know, the exact power of romania's "dissident" "inteligentsia"
mircea_popescu: it is a self-bestowed power of no actual consequence.
mircea_popescu: let me dig you this thing for you to read :
BingoBoingo: herbijudlestoids: You are marketmaking ATC nao? How long until moon?
herbijudlestoids: BingoBoingo: i might try and make a lil market today
herbijudlestoids: see what happens
herbijudlestoids: looks like someone has come in and put some bid in already at 375
herbijudlestoids: good sign
herbijudlestoids: was it someone here?
herbijudlestoids: im about to narrow the fuck out of that spread
herbijudlestoids: just waiting for some confirmations on my BTC deposit
herbijudlestoids: i also found a bug on openex last inght and lodged an issue on github
herbijudlestoids: seems like ok software tho
Apocalyptic: herbijudlestoids, was the bug security-related ?
decimation: The media has the power to veto things if they are able to make someone look bad
herbijudlestoids: just in relation to orders >8 decimal places
decimation: academia has the power to insert ideas into the bureaucratic process
mircea_popescu: that's the article, in romanian.
mircea_popescu: it summarizes a book, which is mostly built on the stenographs of romania's dictator and sole source of power,
mircea_popescu: meeting romania's academia, in corpore.
herbijudlestoids: BingoBoingo: chess tonight? :D
mircea_popescu: the man passed for an idiot in their theoretical writings, he owns them on the floor. not because of a threat of violence, but through simple intellectual superiority.
BingoBoingo: herbijudlestoids: Why not?
mircea_popescu: this, i am convinced, is the situation of the us academia : they tell each other they're smart,
mircea_popescu: but if they get caged with a head of civil service they get wiped.
mircea_popescu: not because the guy orders them killed, but because the guy is actrually smarter than them, and breaks off their metaphorical arms and beats them into a pulp with them
herbijudlestoids: yey, i will ping you in ~8h
decimation: I think that's true to some extent - not so with elected officials though
decimation: The civil service in the US is mostly a jobs program, but the elite staff at the top generally knows what they are doing (like Ceausescu, they have learned through doing)
BingoBoingo: herbijudlestoids: I can't guarantee I'll be awake that far into the future.
mircea_popescu: so basically... the press is just living off handouts, the academia mostly wishes to circlejerk undisturbed, has first dibs on available cash and otherwise grumbles but is thankful if resources dwindle
mircea_popescu: the us is the civil service, like any socialist state, the bureaucracy.
decimation: This is mostly true, but the civil service can't entirely ignore the media either. On the other hand, the civil service also tells the media what to print
decimation: Rule by permanant bureaucracy is actually pretty stable historically
decimation: look at the Eastern Roman empire, and China
mircea_popescu: so then yes it can entirely ignore it.
mircea_popescu: it just tells it what to print.
decimation: The trick that the us government must navigate is to make the people still think they matter while making all the real decisions for them
decimation: that's the job of the media largely
mircea_popescu: it's only stable for as long as there's no new technology.
mircea_popescu: it is very unstable once the currency is attacked.
mircea_popescu: louis had the rule by bureaucracy down pat.
davout: mircea_popescu: nice article, preaching to the converted :-)
mircea_popescu: this is why attacking the currency is so paramountly important.
mircea_popescu: davout i like preaching to the converted, they have the best cleavage.
davout: mircea_popescu: i'll need to ask pankkake to explain this one to me
mircea_popescu: lol p has good cleavage ?!
davout: i don't know what you mean by cleavage
pankkake: what
davout: pankkake: your english is better than mine
pankkake: décolleté
decimation: I'm certainly a fan of peaceful transitions
decimation: hopefully there will be no Committee for Public Safety in the us
herbijudlestoids: ok back from my calls
davout: haha i still don't get it ><
mircea_popescu: decimation peaceful transition is experimentally a function of ethnic and cultural homogenity and size.
pankkake: me neither
mircea_popescu: the us is a large, federal (as opposed to national) construct.
mircea_popescu: it can't not be bloody.
mircea_popescu: davout me either, but cleavage.
davout: mircea_popescu: this i get
mircea_popescu: daily basis!
davout: :-)
decimation: yeah, there are many possibilities but the most likely seems to be falling back to individual soviergnty of the states
mircea_popescu: corsage cleavage actually.
mircea_popescu: decimation how do you reason ?
decimation: especially the ones that haven't been demographically ruined
decimation: some states are fairly homogeneous, and the idea of a 'state' is a sufficient Schelling point around which militia can rally
mircea_popescu: except the only point of history n the us is the defeating of such a construct.
mircea_popescu: or review the legal history of the concept of nullification
mircea_popescu: no argument that it will probably get bloody around this argument rather than any other,
mircea_popescu: so a schelling point it is.
mircea_popescu: just, not for peaceful transition.
decimation: yeah I think you are likely correct
decimation: the trouble is that the collapse of the US will engulf the entire world in instability
mircea_popescu: "the entire world" as seen from the us.
mircea_popescu: may spill into canada, certainly will destroy mexico.
KRS-One: decimation is correct, unfortunately

mircea_popescu: decimation yea
decimation: interesting. the trouble with a turbulant future for the US (or other nuclear powers) is: what happens to the nukes?
mircea_popescu: decimation what happened to the russian nukes ?
jurov: the us bought them
mircea_popescu: notrly, but anyway.
pankkake: does S.MPOE intend to buy nukes?
jurov: hahaha
mircea_popescu: if they're cheap enough, why not.

decimation: the DoD will be broke
decimation: the aircraft carriers will rot in their docks
mircea_popescu: decimation expensive i meant in an absolute sense.
mircea_popescu: you have to maintain them
decimation: absolutely
decimation: and the delivery mechanisms
mircea_popescu: its a major hassle.
mircea_popescu: one of the reason this sovereign beats that sovereign is that it has a better definition of sovereignity.

mircea_popescu: wait till you read the blogfeeds.
decimation: well, the ultimate argument against nukes today is that wealth is not held physically anymore
decimation: the value of a city is the sum of all the services its brains can provide

jurov: there are irrational actors. religious nuttery is actually on the rise.

herbijudlestoids: BingoBoingo: cos theres no liquidity in my bids

mircea_popescu: herbijudlestoids so it puts unfunded bids on the book ?!
herbijudlestoids: mircea_popescu: when i say no i mean low
BingoBoingo: herbijudlestoids: No, I just manually sniped your bids after that fail.

herbijudlestoids: it didnt skip them
herbijudlestoids: they were executed!

herbijudlestoids: kakobrekla: isnt that wut i said
pankkake: should fake volumes be a feature of :)
kakobrekla: i have no idea what you said
BingoBoingo: herbijudlestoids: I believe this point came up in the -assets log earlier. You didn't need someone with 100 BTC to beat your efforts at Market Marking. All it took as someone with 0.015 BTC and some ATC.
herbijudlestoids: ? thats exactly what i said would happen?
herbijudlestoids: i am not capitalised correctly to make bids
kakobrekla: i dont know what is happening. so ill leave.
herbijudlestoids: and if im not capitalised correctly then the best i can do is the best i can do
BingoBoingo: herbijudlestoids: Or you could simply try to not become less capitalized?
herbijudlestoids: BingoBoingo: yer, in which case the spread stays at 300 and nobody gives a fuck about the market
BingoBoingo: herbijudlestoids: It isn't necessarily unhealty. It simply means sellers and buyers have a disagreement.
herbijudlestoids: BingoBoingo: ok well let us see how much activity occurs with a spread of 300, my guess is none.
herbijudlestoids: probly between me and you there has been more activity in ATCBTC in the last hour than the last 5 days
mike_c: not even close.
BingoBoingo: herbijudlestoids: Consider this a lesson in fundamental assumptions that vary between the fiat and BTC worlds. Fiat can have money come in at any price.
herbijudlestoids: not really sure how this is any different from a fiat market
herbijudlestoids: aside from lack of leverage
herbijudlestoids: its just a two way auction.
BingoBoingo: BTC on the other hand is too expensive to throw away on making a market look right.
BingoBoingo: It is more important the market actually BE right, than to look "right"
BingoBoingo: herbijudlestoids: Consider the spreads on S.BBET and S.NSA
herbijudlestoids: right, so the correct state of ATCBTC is no trades? gg
mircea_popescu: what is the atc voluem to date actually ?
BingoBoingo: herbijudlestoids: No the correct state is trades only when there is an agreement between buyers and sellers on value.

BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: Earlier this week it was up to 0.1 in a 24 hour period on Openex
mircea_popescu: herbijudlestoids gotta be a least a coupla bitcoins by now

asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: unless i'm missing something, trade only happens when buyer and seller agree on a price. when goods change hands regardless, we usually use another word for it.
herbijudlestoids: asciilifeform: you say price, BingoBoingo is talking perceived value.
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Well,sure
mircea_popescu: i thought you were both discussing other people's other trades

herbijudlestoids: mircea_popescu: no problem specifically, but its unsustainable, id prefer to continue making a market around the diff implied price than not
mircea_popescu: how is it unsustainable, selling btc for atc at above diff implied price ?
mircea_popescu: or you mean, the atc was above ?
herbijudlestoids: i mean, now that i have no BTC in the account, i cant make the market...thats all
mike_c: so you made some profitable trades and now you're broke.
mircea_popescu: so then you got creamed.
KRS-One: .bait
mircea_popescu: it is either one or the other you know.
herbijudlestoids: not really sure how im failing to explain this
mircea_popescu: either what you do is profitable and sustainable, or else it isn't. we have a word for that latter.

mircea_popescu: s/cut/cunt/

BingoBoingo: I made two profits.
BingoBoingo: And last trade on ATC was 700 Satoshis
mircea_popescu: incidentally, why are you two so convinced a high last trade is useful or important ?
jayk: that pic

mircea_popescu: herbijudlestoids think in terms of autonomous entities. like say an insect, or whatever. its survival as a type and as a species depends on interracting with an unspeicifed envronment a certain way.
mircea_popescu: so far you're failing that test.
herbijudlestoids: lucky my survival doesnt depend at all whatsoever on my attempts to generate interest on openex in ATCBTC :)
mike_c: <sigh> you want to learn your lessons when they only cost $9 or when they cost more?
herbijudlestoids: haha fuck mike_c if its so aggravating, you can just put me on ignore, right? like i dont want to draw sighs from anyone
mike_c: uh oh. don't get all sensitive again
ozbot: [ActiveMining] The Official Active Mining Discussion Thread [Self-Moderated]
mike_c: nevermind, nevermind. anyway, the spread has gotten lower.
mircea_popescu: herbijudlestoids no but see, the argument is that nature did well enough populating the earth without trying to populate the earth
mircea_popescu: but merely out of a bunch of things following my rule above.
mircea_popescu: meanwhile obama did very poorly trying to "restart the economy" from the top down
mircea_popescu: and generally, the ideology surrounding bitcoin is that these two are irreconciliable, and the 2nd is wrong.
herbijudlestoids: mike_c: yall seem convinced that you have taught me some kind of lesson...or that im learning it...or whatever...all i can see is approx what i said would happen if undercapitalised, happened. i dont really take any exception to it happening, but to the idea that there was some kind of inherent lesson, or some point, whatever... i dont see it
herbijudlestoids: this all started because mircea_popescu asked if i would be his "ATC daytrader on openex" because i mentioned having put on a small cascade of limit sells last night...and i said i didnt think there was anything to the market except the potential for MM
Apocalyptic: still talking about this heh ?
pankkake: Duffer1: I don't know if it will attract anyone. is almost dead
herbijudlestoids: i tried it anyway, to keep an open mind because maybe i am missing some concept... but i dont think i am.

herbijudlestoids: for strange definitions of creamed
herbijudlestoids: mircea_popescu: your analogies arent even close to related. nature builds simple robust systems, obama trying to restart a complex system far from equilibrium...
Vexual: Prince defined it back in '91
herbijudlestoids: mircea_popescu: in no sense am i trying to build a complex system, just provide the seedbed for liquidity in ATCBTC on openex, in the hopes of enticing others to do similar

mike_c: herb, i wasn't trying to rile you up. i was just commenting on you saying you didn't care because you lost $9. my point was that's the best kind of loss to learn from if you can.
herbijudlestoids: im not riled up lol, im trying to understand wtf
mircea_popescu: well ok, so how come my analogies are not related ?
jimjenkin: hi mircea
jimjenkin: good post on mtgox
jimjenkin: on your blog
Apocalyptic: damn i missed the new trilema
mircea_popescu: herbijudlestoids anyway, it's nothing as heavyhanded as "a lesson" blabla, it's just we apparently all seem to see sometyhing there.
herbijudlestoids: mircea_popescu: i just explained it? nature does not build systems which drift from equilibrium. obama is literally riding a complex system in escape velocity. the implication is that what i tried to do is ...incorrect...because its obama-esque and not saying thats so far from what i was trying to accomplish, that i dont understand the connection
mircea_popescu: so what were you trying to accomplish ? because it seems one of those polymorphous things which changes under examination.
mircea_popescu: were you trying to turn a profit, were you trying to improve the atc ecosystem, what was it ?
jimjenkin: obama cant build obamacare becuase its impossible to scale 1 system to 330million individuals duh.
jimjenkin: that type of health system works in tiny populations like norway
mircea_popescu: jimjenkin norway has the advantage it doesn't need to build self-sustaining system, because they're getting free money from the sea.
herbijudlestoids: mircea_popescu: what i said to you from the very beginning was that there is no profit to turn, except in the potential for MM, which i am underfunded for, but i would give a crack anyway
jimjenkin: thats true too mircea
mircea_popescu: so were you trying to turn a profit ?
herbijudlestoids: profit can come when there is an actual stack of bids and offers to sell into, in the meantime can make a small market around the diff implied price which encourages others to do same, generating the potential for daytrading, etc
mircea_popescu: that's a yes or a no?
jimjenkin: answers a simple question with gibberish
herbijudlestoids: am i really speaking gibberish here?
jimjenkin: the man asked you a question
mircea_popescu: amusingly, this is pretty much bitcoin-fiat dialogue, personified.
herbijudlestoids: mircea_popescu: the purpose of my activity, like i explained to you (now 3 times) was to have a go at something i was skeptical would work, specifically because you seemed to think there was some potential in trying the idea out
herbijudlestoids: i couldnt decipher what the potential was on questioning

herbijudlestoids: but willing to keep an open mind and have a go anyway
mircea_popescu: so what you're saying is basically that my question can not be answered, in that you can't in retrospect establish if you were or were not trying to turn a profit.
herbijudlestoids: i already said from the beginning that its highly unlikely for any business to succeed if undercapitalised and in this case i am undercapitalised for "daytrading ATC on openex"
mircea_popescu: <mike_c> <sigh> you want to learn your lessons when they only cost $9 or when they cost more? << the problem here is, of course, that people will waive their immunity to reality when reality is still powerless. this kind of puts a low bound on everyone's education, and this is why it's so much cheaper to educate poor kids.
mircea_popescu: herbijudlestoids what's that to do with anything ?
mircea_popescu: so you said hail mary before stepping on the battlefield. so ?
mircea_popescu: mike_c also why slaves are the most educable. they own nothing, are immune to nothing, have no choice but tu learn.
jimjenkin: mircea_popescu: can you talk about the latest developments regarding the tx mal. bullshit, does it matter?
mircea_popescu: jimjenkin depends what your criteria are, but i dunno why it would generally matter.
herbijudlestoids: mircea_popescu: i was not specifically, with the amount of capital input, trying to turn a profit. no. i figured that was clear but apparently not. the goal, specifically, was to entice an "ecosystem" as you put it, into existence, from which a profit can actually be derived.
mircea_popescu: so you were not trying to turn a profit, but to build up the ecosystem.
mircea_popescu: how is this different from obama trying to "restart the economy" ?
herbijudlestoids: i dun really see how its related at all.
mircea_popescu: so you perceive no point of contact between the two whatsoever ?
jimjenkin: everyone in crypto is trying to build an ecosystem, but they never explain what that ecosystem actually is
jimjenkin: another catchphrase of the tech community
herbijudlestoids: for the retarded, pls explicitly state what is the point of contact between trying to establish liquidity for exchanging ATCBTC and obama trying to kickstart a disjoint complex system in failure mode

mircea_popescu: herbijudlestoids the us economy is in state S, obama intends to move it to state S'.
mircea_popescu: atc is in state A, you intend to move it to state A'
mircea_popescu: it would seem you are substantially both the same thing doing the same thing : having identified a "better" state and labouring to enact this notion of yours into reality.
herbijudlestoids: soooo basically, everything fighting entropy in any form whatsoever is now analoguous to obama trying to kickstart the economy
mircea_popescu: not in any form whatsoever.
herbijudlestoids: my body is in state X and trying to move to state X'
herbijudlestoids: my body is obama
mircea_popescu: your body is not aiming for a state in that sense, but merely proceeding from X.
mircea_popescu: you see, if your liver relases glycogen, this is because of X, not because of X'.
mircea_popescu: this distinction, which may appear without a difference, is actually the whole story.
herbijudlestoids: usually when you type mircea_popescu i feel like there is a ray of insight and knowledge which i can catch and appreciate. not so much today.
jimjenkin: so are you trying to make a profit
mircea_popescu: herbijudlestoids i guess it must be cloudy :)

herbijudlestoids: ThickAsThieves: cloud storage is billed usually by the GB/month
herbijudlestoids: like 10c/GB/month
herbijudlestoids: so instead of 10c its 10c equiv of bitcoin
ThickAsThieves: so billed in fiat, but payable in btc
