decimation: lol looks like a good way to lose a finger
decimation: btw here's the guy who likely wrote the bash bug:
asciilifeform: -and- 'readline' !?
decimation: hehe lock away your women
decimation: 'gnu software': parsers written by derps who can't write parsers
decimation: asciilifeform: what kind of bell must be rung to convince people that 'reviewing' the monstrous pile of C code (on the C-machine) modern software uses is not just difficult - it's impossible
asciilifeform: what kind of bell must be rung to wake the dead?
asciilifeform: or at least to reanimate 'vegetables' ?
decimation: I've been reading derpage in the media about how much money amazon & google make of the wintel/linux stack and how little they obviously look at the details of what they are building
decimation: inevitably there's going to be some usg 'dept of c-machine hygiene'
asciilifeform: that'd be... microshit.
decimation: the vegetable analogy is incomplete - the 'vegetable' could get up and walk, or at least move its fingers, at any time
decimation: patient chooses to wallow in its vegetableness instead
asciilifeform: the semiconductor folks could decide to produce non-braindamaged circuits also at any time.

The20YearIRCloud: It showed technology in a positive light, humans were finally unable to destroy gaia
jurov: transcendence or how it was called was rather positive about tech
thickasthieves: jdany_ leaving AM (and all bitcoin securities dealings) was something that took a few mos to prep and execute

mircea_popescu: yes, but the plundering has a larger cost to them than to us.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i can't even imagine who would be dumb enough to lend btc to usg, considering the gold obligations affair
mircea_popescu: because they have to keep selling us the proceeds of their selftheft below market.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform everyone accounting in dollars.
decimation: re: ham bands << the point is that the 'law' already gave those frequencies to the hams, except when it would inconvenience a company to redesign the product
mircea_popescu: it's actually a better deal in dollars than to hold on btc.
decimation: although if you read the fine print, the police bot is technical secondary to the ham
asciilifeform: when usg sets off a bomb in iraqanistan, the metal, trotyl, guidance circuits - are also 'sold' and 'below market' also.
mircea_popescu: as the obligation to repay btc held on the usg is actually going to increase somewhat faster than the btc itself
decimation: so it would actually be legal to blast it off the air
asciilifeform: do they give a damn?
mircea_popescu: but there's no bomb here.
asciilifeform: decimation: i pointed this out earlier, yes
mircea_popescu: when they give the tanks to isis, they give them.
mircea_popescu: that's the model.
asciilifeform: and i suspect usg also gets it. they're banking on just one hope, killing btc somehow through stampede
mircea_popescu: it's one of those win-win/lose-lose scenarios. basically they're cutting their herds to drown us in blood
mircea_popescu: easier to sit on a ledge than to replace the cattle.
mircea_popescu: i doubt hte usg gets anything at this point. just a lengthy succession of narrow "experts" who keep passing data cross a "telephone wire", while the meanings of the terms used change on every pass.

mircea_popescu: that's the allegation.
mircea_popescu: hence "agents"
asciilifeform: in what way are these folks meaningfully separate entities from usg?
decimation: yes, usg is still responsible.
decimation: many in the us are easily confused on this point
decimation: they think they bank with some local bank, not the fed/fdic/whatever
mircea_popescu: qui facit per alium facit per se and all that.
TheNewDeal: all the biggest banks are in bed with the fed anyways
decimation: TheNewDeal: that's the point, thus the usg is responsible for their actions, as mp just wrote
bounce: pffft. they /are/ the fed. it's not actually an usg institution.
mircea_popescu: in a sense, thinking about it... the usg problems come down to a poor implementation of the pipe.
mircea_popescu: that thing's a lot more fundamental than usually given credit for
decimation: 'the pipe'?
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: the pipe - is everything. (hence my crackpot pushing of dataflow as replacement for von neumann computation, etc)
bounce: lay down the pipe and open a window. slowly!
asciilifeform: von neumann's basic problem is a terrifically bad implementation of the ordinary pipe concept.

asciilifeform: !s the spittoon
mircea_popescu: in fact, if you get the pipe right, it doesn't even actually matter if you get anything else right
mircea_popescu: in this perspective, the blockchain is the major point of bitcoin
mircea_popescu: which happens to be correct, and peripherally a point i've oft made, say how "bitcoin is not the derps"
decimation: I was thinking about this last night. How can you be certain that your hvac control pipe is not connected to the self-destruct thermite bomb pipe?
mircea_popescu: decimation hm?
decimation: if they are both connected to the same von neumann machine (or network of such machines) you can't be certain
decimation: in the sense that you can check that they are physically unconnected
decimation: with your own eyes
mircea_popescu: i think these live on different abstraction levels
asciilifeform: difficult to work with naked eye on microelectronics.
asciilifeform: of whatever kind.
decimation: it's difficult to inspect the usg/fed's actions with the naked eye
mircea_popescu: depends whose.
mircea_popescu: macro events are visible, and the forest-for-trees problem is something one can approach with training and talent
mircea_popescu: micro events however are invisible.
decimation: I suspect parts of usg/its agents are working against each other

bounce: what, options on bitbet outcomes?
Shakespeare: well that's private los_pantalones
TheNewDeal: no. options on bitstamp prices, etc
Shakespeare: i shouldnt have to say
los_pantalones: it's not worth my time if it would be <100 / week
kakobrekla: i have in the past dumped coins to sturles and left fiat waiting with him for some months before i decided to repurchase/get fiat
los_pantalones: but otherwise i can offer you those facilities
mircea_popescu: Shakespeare dude you're something else. "o someone should build a car with wings" "Would you buy one if built ?" "i shouldn't have to say"
mircea_popescu: you're spending too much time with redditards.
Shakespeare: well in mpex i didnt have to sat

mircea_popescu: los_pantalones so charge the man an entry fee.
los_pantalones: how much is mpex these days ?
mircea_popescu: still 30.
TheNewDeal: basically what an option is, an adequately priced entry fee
mircea_popescu: decimation oddly the fully delivered euro future never got very much volumne, historically.
kakobrekla: euro market is dead
mircea_popescu: i dunno if the requirements to take delivery were too cumbersome or wtf exactly.
decimation: seems like euros are good enough for anyone wanting to trade fiat
mircea_popescu: but anyway, yeah, i guess the bitbet bets are probably the cheapest/most open avenue at the moment.
decimation: obviously the dude is unfamiliar with engineering stuff. it's quite customary to ask for development costs up front, on the assumption that several will be bought

mircea_popescu: justusranvier that was the idea, give it a little editorial anchor
mircea_popescu: TheNewDeal seems bout even neh ?
decimation: I find it hilarious that the lefties in the us keep raising the fear that 'evil republicans will raise money to buy elections' while failing to notice that the lefties receive 'in-kind' contributions from us media worth $bns
TheNewDeal: draper put down 1 on yes, trying to recoup with wall
mircea_popescu: decimation that is not accountable!!!1
justusranvier: I'll see what I can do. Won't be tonight because I've got to go producea couple videos
decimation: yeah basically it's 'oh noes they might manipulate the masses like we do!'
mircea_popescu: but anyway, the entire "thief screaming thief" and "consumate liar discussing other's dna-sutured bla bla" is rather amusing
mircea_popescu: justusranvier doesn't have to be tonight. wait, you produce video too ?!
justusranvier: We've started to publish talks from our Bitcoin meetups to YouTube
justusranvier: by "produce" I mean I set up the Hangout on Air

TheNewDeal: just try to get your hands on it
bounce: without inviting them to sue you on the spot, you mean. you don't get permission, you incriminate yourself and they may or may not persecute you for it.
decimation: try moving $50k from your brokerage to your checking account in less than a few days
Shakespeare: i moved $30k a few weeks ago, they just made me respond to a message
decimation: it's true you can move it quickly with a wire
decimation: but I guarantee a notice went to the bank's regulator
mircea_popescu: Shakespeare the rule is you can't put up orders you don't intend to go through.
TheNewDeal: the question is interesting though. What would the rules be on creating a wall that wasnt executed
mircea_popescu: other than that, you can put up whatever walls you wish.

Vexual: are you using the money yet?
ben_vulpes: he couldn't buy shares at market?
The20YearIRCloud: no shares at market were going to the company
The20YearIRCloud: and his investment would have increased price to around .02
ben_vulpes: so you fucked everyone else.

dub: its called QE ben_vulpes
dub: it halps ok

Dimsler: with bots that manipulate the exchange
The20YearIRCloud: not a huge need for more IPOs, the reason for this last one was so the speicfic investor could fund a very specific property that had a good return

ben_vulpes: more ipos
Dimsler: lol
ben_vulpes: jesus shit
dub: Dimsler: there is such a thing as putting down the shovel
The20YearIRCloud: my hope was $100k cash + $100k LOC and then set aside the money 50/50 for flips & rental renovations so we'd always have money for a flip, which hasn't been the case since last July

Vexual: with the latest offering, what btc price kills your growth?
The20YearIRCloud: Really has no effect, but the BTC yield will look crummy at $2500 or more per BTC
dub: ur killing my growth Vexual
Duffer1: btc skyrockets, us real estate corrects = /wrist?
Vexual: do you get paid in dollars The20YearIRCloud?
The20YearIRCloud: Yield will certanly go down, our equity position overall is pretty great when you factor our average BTC sell price. Big question is when does it correct, how far does the pricing drop? We're still about 20% lower than peaks
Vexual: what did you sell the latest offering @?
Vexual: must have fucked your arerage
The20YearIRCloud: Haven't yet :( , HL has been slow on transfering BTC to us, so there's been some exposure to loss due to the massive decrease in BTC price
The20YearIRCloud: Our average overall will stand at something like $400/btc though, including the original 1,000 BTC we got on BF that was sold when BTC was around $80/btc
Vexual: havelock must be just about operating at a loss now
The20YearIRCloud: i knd of wonder
