CheckDavid: Thanks
CheckDavid: I wanted to ask what you guys think about B2B email communications in the bitcoin industry
jurov: we call it "spam"
mats_cd03: whats there to think about
CheckDavid: Is plain text good, or are fancy HTML templates worth it?
jurov gasps
CheckDavid: Sincerely don't know.
chetty does not accept html format email, ever
punkman: always plain text
CheckDavid: Personally I don't care for fancy emails
CheckDavid: Buy my manager is the fancy time
CheckDavid: Wastes over an hour to make HTML emails
chetty: well be aware that most people will not accept html formats, any one with sense that is
jurov: CheckDavid send him to verious btc conferences. At least you'll get rid of him for a time.
jurov: You will never get in touch with someone who matters by spamming.
CheckDavid: jurov: that's masterful social engineering. But is there.more than just getting rid of him? Lol
jurov: add moar depth to your hdd noises !!1
assbot: Unreal cables
CheckDavid: Oh jurov. I am not spamming. At least not now.
jurov: you can at least say here what you're gonna mailing about
CheckDavid: I am managing some communicational efforts for a Recruiting agency
chetty: jurov nailed it, spam
jurov: you know, I got lots of spam about "IBM jobs offers". your offer will end up in the trash promptly together with them
CheckDavid: jurov: I can. I am gauging for the demand bitcoin businesses have for certain professionals. Depending on each business needs, I will send an personalized email accounting for their vacancies
jurov: dude there are few people seeking gigs. no need to be obtuse
CheckDavid: Not really because we already have a database of job seekers.
CheckDavid: jurov: sorry. What do you mean?
jurov: do you need sysadmin or coder or? which company? how much $$$?
CheckDavid: jurov: you want to know about our job.offers?
jurov: perhaps something will pique my interest. and there are more such people in this chan
jurov: but if you insist emailing reddit herd or such, that's up to you
CheckDavid: Oh. I definitely will communicate interesting job offers to anyone interested. But now I am on a phase of building a base of employers in the bitcoin community
jurov: in other words, you're cooking stone soup

assbot: Tte--Tte With A Neo-National Socialist | Contravex: A blog by Pete Dushenski
pete_dushenski: ben_vulpes: there's no sense in holding "a people" or "a community" liable for actions of their ancestors, is there? << sorta depends, did "the people" meaningfully change since their ancestors? do they still tie up their shoes the same way? still read the same books? time doesn't necessitate change.
pete_dushenski: if no change, then it depends on how useful holding descendants accountable is.
jurov: it's US who didn't change?
pete_dushenski: jurov: is that USA or "not them" ?
jurov: not them
pete_dushenski: that the observer changes effects their own action
pete_dushenski: and surely whether or not they hold "the other" accountable for the actions of their forefathers
pete_dushenski: but in this specific instance, it's not clear that either has changed.
jurov: we can actually hold our forefathers accountable but rarely anyone does
pete_dushenski: the roots being quite deep.
pete_dushenski: jurov: it's surely easier if they're alive
pete_dushenski: if they're dead, we can choose to ignore their actions and pretend like tabula rasas are possible
pete_dushenski: a la stalin, ataturk, etc.
pete_dushenski: this, of course, opens one up to being twist turned upside down
pete_dushenski: be it by rationalist, scientistic ideals or what have you
pete_dushenski: so while "rarely anyone does" in the post 19th century west, most other times and places take their ancestors quite seriously
pete_dushenski: this lends itself to continuity, stability, and other "good things" imo

mircea_popescu: i am a master of the written worm.
mircea_popescu: i mean ford.
mircea_popescu: yeah, that's it, i am a master of the written ford.
Azelphur: but nah, I agree he was a terrible businessman, but then nobody should have put him in a business position anyway, he's a programmer
mircea_popescu: HE put himself in a business position
mircea_popescu: by his idiotic if contemporaneously fashionable insistance on fluff and i can do anythingism,.
Azelphur shrugs
mircea_popescu: i told him to stfu and mind his own business like 3 times.
mircea_popescu: for that matter nefario, too.
mircea_popescu: but hey, kids know better and i am just hating their genius.
mircea_popescu: !up andylau
Azelphur: mircea_popescu: haha, over the years I've learned you're generally right about these things :P
Azelphur: I still don't think genjix should be discounted as a programmer though, he's a damned good one and that'd be one hell of a waste.
mircea_popescu: too much cognitive dissonance to handle, 500 idiots keep telling them how special they are then mp says stfu and crochet.
mircea_popescu: the human brain doesn't handle exceptions well
Azelphur: I suppose
mircea_popescu: either overweights or underweights them unduly.
mircea_popescu: kinda well known psychology, this, hence the memory effect and all that.
pete_dushenski: Dimsler: i knew vitalik when he was in waterloo. buying bitcoins off me << lol!
mircea_popescu: CheckDavid: Sincerely don't know. << nobody EVER liked html email. and there's a pretty good argument that it's completely a tech misapplication, like the cigarette lighter oven.
mircea_popescu: you don't need or want an oven to light your cigarette.
Azelphur: I've met taaki a couple times now
Azelphur: his family lives just around the corner from me
mircea_popescu: jurov: CheckDavid send him to verious btc conferences. At least you'll get rid of him for a time. << i like how practical jurov is. yeah, best move there.
mircea_popescu: with any luck he'll be hired away from you and it's win-win.
mircea_popescu: "Join the Freelancer Shareholder Foundation Program and get a discount on WSO listing fees"

mircea_popescu: look at that, is spamming unregistered share sales offers!
mircea_popescu: which happens to be illegal.
mircea_popescu wonders if the SEC, ever so careful with these things, is yet investigating the underhanded practices of matt barrie &co
pete_dushenski: mircea_popescu: it's just that the gear switch from derpyland to btcland is bound to culture shock a little. << on the moolah
mircea_popescu: pete_dushenski: if no change, then it depends on how useful holding descendants accountable is. < no, i'm with him. this makes exactly zero sense, chiefly because a group may be ridiculous, impractical, suicidal, anything you wish, but never wrong. only individuals can be wrong, in that they don't subscribe to the moral scheme of some group they intend to be part of. ther
kakobrekla: <punkman> < wtf, so much overhead for 100kbits
assbot: Kialara - Imgur
mircea_popescu: e's no such thing as "evil group" possible.
pete_dushenski: mircea_popescu: ancestors need not be a group or identify themselves as part of one
mircea_popescu: but you identified them as a group not as individuals.
pete_dushenski: ancestors can be individuals who spawned further individuals
mircea_popescu: only if you call the object through THAT constructor.
pete_dushenski: you're right, i did, and now i'm exploiting the escape hatch in my own reasoning
mircea_popescu: if i say "b-a cannucks" i create one group, if i say " pete_dushenski, nubbins, [...]" i create a group with the same members, but through a different method, which makes it in fact a different group for this conversation.

mp_sails: like the bridge that fell into the river. once done falling, it's ready to be inaugurated.
asciilifeform: mp_sails: a story about buying insurance, to be truly educational, has to involve... actually invoking the policy.
mp_sails: asciilifeform, i can see your point, byt it was underwritten by lloyds of london. i give it some credence.
mp_sails: (on the grounds that they did cover say a boat once, and behaved as an insurer as opposed to what passes for such in the us)
bounce: well, there's good advice. get your US insurance at lloyd's
mp_sails: this was many years ago. not sure they even offer it sanymore.
asciilifeform: i dare say mp_sails probably seemed quite a bit more insurable than a usaschwitz inmate - from appraiser's point of view
mp_sails: asciilifeform, im not entirely sure how all the intricacies work but if memory serves they were actually legally barred from considering prior commercial relationship
mp_sails: as in, they can't give a better life policy to the guy who owns a shipping line they insure than to random clerk walking in off street.
asciilifeform: prior relationship - sure. other things?

The20YearIRCloud: Insurance is a complicated mess in the US, it all started back when the govt first decided they should control healthcare
The20YearIRCloud: because the 'poor man' couldn't afford healthcare, which back then was 1/3rd the cost of what it was even factoring in inflation
mp_sails: high seas!
mp_sails: i can't believe after all these years satellite is still this shitty.
asciilifeform: mp_sails: i'm gonna guess you hadn't paid for dedicated 'horns' on multiple sats...
jurov: The20YearIRCloud as i see it from here, the US doctors first decided they must control healthcare
mp_sails: mthreat, for because the navigational reason.
jurov: govt happily obliged
ben_vulpes: <mp_sails> mats_cd03, look into the crazed effects on the lower middle class, where people who could afford insurance before can't anymore, too. because htey're now not poor enough to be poor and not rich enough to be rich. << true story. i can't really afford the shit now.
mp_sails: jurov, doctors dont really control it tho
mp_sails: ben_vulpes, pretty much half or more of the young professional, 10-20mn people are in this position
mp_sails: tbh it'd be mjuch more sensible to jjust shoot everyone and keep these guys than the other way around.
mp_sails: the people you can't under any circumstance sacrifice are the 20somethings with a career.
The20YearIRCloud: The doctors?
mp_sails: doctors or farmers, whatever they be
The20YearIRCloud: IT was a part of Johnson's plan of buying all the poor people votes in the US by pushing through medicare/medicaid
BingoBoingo: jborkl: Lock apprears. Also, maybe update the BFL thing again...
The20YearIRCloud: From 1930-1963 median healthcare costs were lock-step with average inflation (1-3% a year), after 1964 suddenly you have increases of 4%-25% per year, every single year
mp_sails: asciilifeform, southern hemisphere is not that well illuminated anyway
The20YearIRCloud: After 1964 you also see dozens, if not hundreds of large-scale laws dealing with the medical industry, when prior there were few if any laws regarding healthcare in the US
mthreat: mp_sails: are you sailing?
jborkl: ok, thank you I have been busy fixing all the ssl crap and forgot about everything else
mp_sails: The20YearIRCloud, the most obvious display of this being if you compare say an emergency apendectomy in lyons and miami
mp_sails: mthreat, well no, im sitting an' typing, but im close to people that do.
The20YearIRCloud: What's the difference in cost?
mp_sails: if i actually sailed myself i'd prolly sink the whole show
mp_sails: The20YearIRCloud, maybe 6x ?
The20YearIRCloud: In Miami when you pay for an emergency apendectomy, you're paying for an apendectomy for yourself and 3 other people
mp_sails: ambulance ride for half an hour, e800 or whatever. ya know ?
asciilifeform: mp_sails: The20YearIRCloud: 3 other people << try 33.
mp_sails: insanely expensive when compared to the e80 a cab would take, but not the $18k or whatever insanity
The20YearIRCloud: I was being nice
assbot: Why an MRI costs $1,080 in America and $280 in France - The Washington Post
mp_sails: right. exactly that.
The20YearIRCloud: There's a MRI comparison. What's interesting though is that MRIs are one of the few healthcare things that aren't strictly regulated in the US
The20YearIRCloud: But, when you go to a 'hospital' and get a MRI, they're $1k-$2.5k
mp_sails: and moreove,r most eu mri are done on... us gear.
mp_sails: somehow. and eu doctors are slightly overqualified when compared to us.
mp_sails: somehow. and yet...
The20YearIRCloud: But, you don't have to go to a hospital to get one, you can go to a healthcare clinic that isn't attached to any government program, isn't required to pay any government fees and the like, and they magically cost $149, using newer machines
The20YearIRCloud: In Columbus, a group got together and called every single hospital, and every single MRI clinic and got the price for their MRI scans. The average hospital (Which is highly regulated, takes government money, is required by law to provide everyone with medical care regardless of whether they can pay and so on) ran from a minimum of $1600 to a maximum of
The20YearIRCloud: $2,500. The independent clinics that did MRIs and a few other small things ranged from $149 to the very highest at $279
mp_sails: which is about where igt is. i mean yeah sure the equipment is expensive and the staff has ot be qualified.
mp_sails: but you know what ? power plants are also expenmsive, and the staff qualified. yet the kwh is not $850
mp_sails: yet at least. maybe they elect al gore and it goes there.
The20YearIRCloud: Power plant isn't also required to give free electricity out. They can cut people off
mp_sails: hahahahahah
mp_sails: look into that sometime.
mp_sails: they have to spend $1k to install fancy stuff so nonpayers can be "limited", it's a whole shitshow

mp_sails: and verify the signature is actually correct etc.
mp_sails: incidentally, this is a key service b-a should provide i think. maintain a repository of key software infrastructure, precompiled, signed.
mp_sails: prolly too soon, but anyway.
asciilifeform: mp_sails: precompiled << for what. (e.g., which libc? and who volunteers to grok and sign that? etc)

mp_sails: asciilifeform, perhaps.

mp_sails: that was the worst youtube experience ever mthreat. 3 seconds sound, 10 seconds buffering ftw.
mp_sails: bounce, every line of code bears the signature of all the people who read it and certify it's fine.
mp_sails: well, "logical" line anyway
asciilifeform: mp_sails: only to have whole edifice poisoned by a subtle multithreaded 'bug' in kernel, or small 'mistake' in cpu microcode.
mp_sails: so you can set your package manager to disregard anything say w/o 3 assbot l2 trust.
bounce: chinesely interesting figuring out how to do that without exploding the store
mp_sails: asciilifeform, at the very least this is better than nothing. at the very best this goes all the way to chips.
bounce: unless you'd go for the obvious but inconvenient route of signing everything in a specific commit
mp_sails: ie, consumer group pressure power : either get your chips assbot-certified or don't sell to us.
asciilifeform: mp_sails: investing in existing infrastructure, paradoxically, makes us all the more fucked - imho

JuliaTourianski_: +BingoBoingo to be fair, very young cute girls are more rarely seen in btc than dudes. so it naturally peaks my curiosity
BingoBoingo: JuliaTourianski_: danielpbarron is a rare bird here in that he is an orthodoxy attracted thinker that can stick around.
BingoBoingo: JuliaTourianski_: Of course. It is a practical reason to have focus.
JuliaTourianski_: +BingoBoingo focus is going too far

BingoBoingo: On a related note, wasn't the Palm V a nifty piece of harware?
asciilifeform: was, yes.
BingoBoingo: Shame about being the harbringer of iPod solder you own batteries
asciilifeform: said who? there was a plug inside.
asciilifeform: (even in apple's machines, afaik)
BingoBoingo: Well... people who bought a bunch for $7

BingoBoingo: JuliaTourianski: So in what context did you learn of this new girl? I'm a trained libraian

asciilifeform: 'soldered batteries' isn't one.
decimation: I use asus atom netbok for portability; cheap & reliable

assbot: iPod Touch 3rd Generation Battery Replacement - iFixit
TheNewDeal: what os you rocking decimation?
decimation: arch linux
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: It wasn't consistently one
asciilifeform: aha there it is!
asciilifeform: soldered battery.
TheNewDeal: does that feature a dependency hell?
decimation: I would consider migrating to openbsd, but I'm not sure it would have a friendly user interface
asciilifeform: well, not really soldered battery though.
asciilifeform: just cable.
asciilifeform: as pictured, even a kid can safely swap this one.
decimation: they have a variant of 'ports', they seem to actively manage dependencies pretty well
decimation: I would recommend arch linux for learning more about linux
decimation: although they jumped on the systemd bandwagon
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Well in those scenarios my favored fix is scotch tape+conductor.
JuliaTourianski: +BingoBoingo hhaha just someone said to me she's "penetrating the btc scene" so I figured I should probably know of her if that's the case
TheNewDeal: is that at all similar to android init.d?
decimation: heh. it's a replacement actually, and not everyone is a fan
BingoBoingo: decimation> I would consider migrating to openbsd, but I'm not sure it would have a friendly user interface << Can be done, just worry about drivers first.
decimation: replacing init scripts that have been inherited from the early unix days with aimless binaries
TheNewDeal: my knowledge of daemons stops as Warcraft 1
asciilifeform: jumped on the systemd bandwagon << and you're using this on your own free will ?
decimation: the most annoying part to me is getting rid of a text syslog
BingoBoingo: <decimation> although they jumped on the systemd bandwagon << Alpine Linux still defaults to clean
decimation: asciilifeform: yeah too lazy to switch off
decimation: asciilifeform: did you see this site:
assbot: boycott systemd
BingoBoingo: decimation: Solution might be to be lazier to avoid the systemd update???
asciilifeform: coming next:
asciilifeform: don't eat at coprophagic restaurants!
decimation: hehe yeah. when the update mechanism begs you to upgrade, the seduction is hard to avoid
asciilifeform: presence of such a mechanism is a very loud bell that you were gravely mistaken to go there at all.
decimation: "Contribute to and use distros like Slackware, CRUX, Funtoo, and Gentoo that follow traditional Unix paradigms."
asciilifeform: be glad for the bell.
asciilifeform: it tells you to: run.
BingoBoingo: decimation: What happens when you are stuck at OS 7.5.1
decimation: yeah, for instance apparently freenode was hacked
BingoBoingo: What happens when Chicago becomes Charcoal in OS 8?
decimation: the fact that our identification mechanism depends very little on freenode security shows a strong point
decimation: that's a bell too
decimation: BingoBoingo: people who upgrade macs are already very familiar with this hell
decimation: apple is famous for deprecating any feature that an advanced user would find useful
BingoBoingo: decimation: True Macs have only 1 upgrade, OS??? to A/UX
BingoBoingo: Because real macs don't run OS 8 or have PPC
decimation: actually I was sad when apple capitulated to wintel
BingoBoingo: A True Mac is just a Giant TI-89
BingoBoingo: decimation: True story Bought my first cumputer around 2000
decimation: my objection to macos 9 and earlier wasn't that it was a terrible user experience, it was mainly its inability to gracefully handle errors
BingoBoingo: was roughly $10
decimation: more often then not it would just lock & reboot randomly
BingoBoingo: OS 7 handles errors liek an angel
BingoBoingo: The surviving Mac Classic still boots.
decimation: perhaps the macs I had in high school were shit
decimation: I would agree that mac classic i suprisingly usable
BingoBoingo: On its original 40 MB hard drive
BingoBoingo: Only problem with the classic is the SE/30 already existed
decimation: In retrospect, apple should have gotten on the bsd/nextstep bandwagon around '90 or so
BingoBoingo: And kill BSD as it was about to be Free?
asciilifeform: decimation: apple as traditionally understood - does not exist now.
BingoBoingo: History's accidents are where it gets beautiful.
asciilifeform: decimation: 'next' burned it, salted the earth where it stood, and renamed self 'apple'.
decimation: yeah that's a good point, I guess the bsd lawsuit didn't end until '94
decimation: asciilifeform: next stuff was actually pretty neat
BingoBoingo: There's a Theo interview with a lot of that history
asciilifeform: decimation: apple was also, occasionally, pretty neat.
BingoBoingo: Sun was neat too, if only they had kneepads and made a consumer machine
decimation: my perception is that sun died when 'wintel' was adopted by the baby boomers
decimation: some time in the late 90's even management started using windows
decimation: that, and the cpu vendors used by sun just didn't keep up with intel performance
BingoBoingo: Well Sun probably died when the started handing out Solaris install media to fuckers like me who bought their stock at $3.60
