decimation: asciilifeform: I suspect for the second half that they don't think of themselves as evil - they think that those who would wish them ill as evil. they are just trying to do good, you see - they are just "in the loop"
asciilifeform: there are definitely elements of a 'forbidden city' wank fantasy also.
asciilifeform: 'if i get 8 inches of crystalline unobtainium armour, i must be important'
decimation: as I recall, the leaders of those who overthrew the czar immediately began using his fancy boats, palaces, etc for their own private benefit because "they were for the people"
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform> 'if i get 8 inches of crystalline unobtainium armour, i must be important' << Shhh stop talking about my tent
assbot: Logged on 11-09-2014 23:45:36; asciilifeform: 'Take a look in History, flip through her pages. The first action in revolutions of recent history -- the erection of barricades. They'll smash the cobble stones of the street, dig them out, and block off the road with them. They'll stop cars, buses, fill the street with bricks. And also they'll attack, plunder, raze, and put to the torch the city hall, administrative buildings, presidential palace
assbot: Logged on 11-09-2014 23:45:36; asciilifeform: t, shops, warehouses. The crowd has - a correct instinct. It would like to destroy the city - the citadel of power of the political and economic kind - the root cause of its travails. The crowd is stopped in its tracks by those who have plans for the city hall, for the presidential palace. We will not stop the crowd.' (Limonov, 'The Other Russia.') - translation mine.

mircea_popescu: urtis Gibbs of Allentown got a break this month when he went to court for allegedly slapping state Trooper Joe Bushta's horse during Musikfest."
mircea_popescu: i... beg your pardon ?!
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: in most u.s. states, any case involving a policeman requires that he appear in person.
asciilifeform: (if he is alive.)
mircea_popescu: not my point.
mircea_popescu: my point is, you expect me to show up in court because a horse ?!
asciilifeform: ah, well, the other point.
asciilifeform: ask them.
mircea_popescu: get off your horse lmao
asciilifeform: because insulting his majesty's loyal servant, or such.

BingoBoingo: Where do I get a cylinder #5?
asciilifeform: i'd love a container-2.
decimation: BingoBoingo: as in a propane bottle?
asciilifeform: 2 contained Real Earthling Food
BingoBoingo: decimation: No, the one with a phone built in, Cylinder #22's third most important companion
decimation: BingoBoingo: oh you mean the book duh. I like cylinder 22
decimation: yeah, if you are going to be a wasp with support, secure comms are pretty important
BingoBoingo: The problem though is support can be more dangerous than the enemy
decimation: heh yeah I half expected the book to end with the man dying at the end of the sights of a Terran space-marine
BingoBoingo: Imagine how many Wasps must have fallen to "friendly" infantry on first contact
asciilifeform: see also, required reading, 'mother night' (k. vonnegut)
asciilifeform: very similar theme.
mircea_popescu: <BingoBoingo> The problem though is support can be more dangerous than the enemy << this is very true. french resisters had an ambiguous reputation with the foreign secret agents dropped in the field.
decimation: vonnegut was pissed that his father failed to bring him up in German culture, and dropped him in "one language English only" americanism << "But no, absolutely not – it was almost perverse, I think, that my father would cut me off from the past in such a way. And I think Germans are the most American of all people; [Dwight D.] Eisenhower was as American as a McDonald’s hamburger."
assbot: Kurt Vonnegut on Indianapolis, Kilgore Trout, and Dresden
asciilifeform: decimation: this is abundantly clear in the mentioned book
mircea_popescu: he definitely has a point.

BingoBoingo: decimation: My present locale only had a german newspaper until 1917
BingoBoingo: Schools similarly didn't have advanced classes in Ingles
asciilifeform: there are supposedly towns in usa speaking a kind of fossilized 18th c. german.
assbot: Logged on 02-08-2014 05:53:18; decimation: there is actually a small Germantown in America:
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Quite a few. Mostly in Missouri Arkansas and Texas
asciilifeform: there were once such germans in ussr, too.
BingoBoingo: Well, USSR had hunters...
BingoBoingo: I saw enemy at the gate...
asciilifeform: actually quite a few remained there until '90s
decimation: I have distant ancestors who lived in odessa, they were invited by Catherine the Great
asciilifeform: mostly moved to germany, afaik.
BingoBoingo: Hard to move to EU from Arkansas
asciilifeform: there were fully-functional german hamlets in, even, kazakhstan
decimation: well, many were rounded up and forcibly moved by the post wwii allies and stalin
BingoBoingo: Oh, there are fully functional hamlets in the Ozarks
asciilifeform: when do we get to hear about the micro-germanies of argentina.
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: When they finish the bomb
BingoBoingo: Argentine microGermanies are newer and moar urgent
BingoBoingo: And were formed on ideas stronger than Prussia sucks
assbot: Logged on 20-03-2014 01:13:02; decimation: In 1897, there lived 345 000 Germans in Ukraine, that was 4,2 % of the population. In 1911, there were 419 000 Germans. ... In spite of it, Germans played an important part in the Ukrainian culture life. Until 1914 many professors at Ukrainian universities were Germans.
decimation: it is sad that the world has largely lost this diaspora because of hitler's derpage
asciilifeform: what the anglos did to germany, will be remembered as -the- 20th c. crime.
decimation: well, it was also partially done during the first world war too
asciilifeform: mostly then.
asciilifeform: in 1911, physics, chemistry, were practically as synonymous with germany as seppuku is with japan.
decimation: even in wwii german technology was generally superior
BingoBoingo: 1911 Forces my brain to think of the Colt pistol
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: now that you mention it, damn, also.
decimation: I heard from a fellow who was in charge of trying to duplicate german paint technology post-wwii. they were amazed to find german railcars painted 10 years earlier that looked new
asciilifeform: good symbol of american degradation incidentally. afaik all examples produced in past 20 years or so - have 'zamac' parts.
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: In American lore the only silent bullets happen in .45 ACP or .22 LR
asciilifeform: subsonics?
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Full power .45 ACP is subsonic by nature.
BingoBoingo: Tis a heavy motherfucker
asciilifeform: low-pressure by design, if i recall, yes.
BingoBoingo: But I dunno why anyone would go for a recent frame
BingoBoingo: $300-Maxint, median seems aroung $1500 per pistol
decimation: well, and the kalash is based on the stg 44
BingoBoingo: And if SKS came 6 months earlier Berlin would need no airlift
asciilifeform: decimation: misconception. study the drawings. very different systems.
asciilifeform: decimation: the cartridge - was.
asciilifeform: note - full machinist drawings for historic arms can, with minimal effort, be found on the net.
asciilifeform: someone even took the trouble to translate notes to english, in many cases.
asciilifeform: presumably - enthusiasts are making them still...
decimation: yeah they kinda look similar superficially. At least the stg44 proved the concept
BingoBoingo: <asciilifeform> someone even took the trouble to translate notes to english, in many cases. << Sad so long take for 9 letter dictionary
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Machining specs, Many numbers, but few units of measure
mircea_popescu: <asciilifeform> in 1911, physics, chemistry, were practically as synonymous with germany as seppuku is with japan. << this is true
mircea_popescu: philosophy still is.
decimation: yeah we haven't had a better kant come along yet
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: few units of measure << millimetre, what else you need.
asciilifeform: assuming ru/de/fr blueprints.
mircea_popescu: decimation not even what i had in mind. i think i ruined someone's life with frege earlier in the logs.
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Well for blowback operated machines of the time it is whatever Browning himself deigned
mircea_popescu: yes. frege. gottlob "fuck you and count" frege.

BingoBoingo: Maryjane: Hi, Wittgenstein was so fucking late
decimation: well, here's a notion: what happened in germany circa 1790-1890 that caused such great minds to mature to fruition?
mircea_popescu: decimation school beatings.
mircea_popescu: look it up.
asciilifeform: decimation: also good question, what -didn't- happen.
mircea_popescu: "you can do anything"
mircea_popescu: didn't happen.
asciilifeform: at any rate, the anglos did what they do best, and now there's a kind of stuffed animal with 'germany' sticker we have now instead to enjoy.

mircea_popescu: i found teaching idiots (literally, 70ish iq) a lot easier and more palatable than teaching "normal" kids.
mircea_popescu: in some environments, intelligence is a curse. you get just smart enough to be unvanquishibly dumb.

Adlai: * | Vexual concede it'll be immediately after he takes my money << the beauty of scalpl's design is that you don't have to give me your money to use it, although you do have to trust the exchange which you choose to use
Vexual: ill give you money anyway, just to be a cunt
kakobrekla: nevertheless the question remains.
Adlai: right now, the answer is "until the guy who's supposed to call me, calls me"
Adlai: RagnarDanneskjol: are you interested in using scalpl once it's at that level?
kakobrekla: hedge fund on kraken?
Adlai: the user configures pretty much everything about how it interprets the market, my goal is for this to essentially be a trading slave which you can teach your algorithms and then sip martinis while it trades away

Adlai: my main reason for using kraken for developement is their minimum order size of 0.01 euro, which means i can risk a lot less capital
Vexual: yeah man, kudos
Vexual: love abounds
Adlai: (the smaller the minimum order relative to your capital, the more steps in your martingale)
Vexual: kraken has a casino now?
RagnarDanneskjol: er no. martingale relates to general probabilistic theory, is used in predictive trading systems, not just dice games derp
Vexual: are yuo in out every pip?
RagnarDanneskjol: probability theory even*
Adlai: "in out every pip"?
Vexual: grunty grunty

kakobrekla: i was like is ascii telling me something in binary and i have to guess the first bit ??
ben_vulpes: mircea_popescu, mats_cd03: ease of dependency management, resource isolation, cognitive overhead. i'm dumb and have to deal with crazy complex legacy shit that's most expediently put into 'containers for poor and time constrained engineers'.
ben_vulpes: for instance, different versions of the python imaging library for different services.
ben_vulpes: i guess at a high level stupid solution to stupid problems.
asciilifeform is reminded of a recent trip to a hardware store, where he saw an entire rack of different kinds of 'duct tape', of nominally greater and greater strengths.

ben_vulpes: would you enumerate the risks?
ben_vulpes: just a few years ago i was building wafer hosts - there is much i don't know about websec.
mats_cd03: LXC has been battle tested for a few years. containers, decades. seccomp is available in the LXC driver, but not in libcontainer. so, the same risks as before -- arbitrary execution of kernel code. leaking to other containers, lack of fine-grained access to devices (in the works, i belieb)
mats_cd03: mitigation involves layering. SELinux, one docker per vm,
mats_cd03: i forget the rest.
ben_vulpes: riskspace is foreign code on box, exploits of running processes from outside world?

assbot: Mastercard Launches Fingerprint-Enabled Credit Card
bounce: because fingerprints are totally better than passwords. much more seekrit.
bounce wonders if mastercard will stump up the costs for fingerprint surgery in case of fingerprint-theft, or they'll rather just burn the customer instead
Apocalyptic: that's a relevant question
asciilifeform: this is ancient history:
asciilifeform: one reason why they push fingerprints and similar crap is the 'prima facie' concept
asciilifeform: that is, the chump can once again be presumed guilty of fraud if he dares to contest a charge, just like in the 'bad old days.'
asciilifeform: burden of proof (to impossible degree) will be on the chump, to show that his fingerprint was lifted.
bounce: rather transparent ploy at that, but succeeding
bounce: now, visa and mastercard aren't banks, but they work for banks. which then gives the lie to the premise that banks are safe places for money (or valuables, for that matter) and as such are worthy of the customer's trust
thestringpuller: reminds me of the episode of south park where they frame michael jackson
chetty: didnt the whole fingerprint thing get destroyed recently with iPhone lift?
asciilifeform: chetty: much earlier than that
asciilifeform: the sausage experiment.
chetty: yeah, but that was recent repeat, I guess no one was paying attention
asciilifeform: think of it this way, if fingerprint is your password, you're leaving a 'stickynote' with your password on nearly everything you touch.
mats_cd03: beaten as early as 2002.
bounce: or the brasilian doctors with latex fingers. or the aussie kids with gummi bears. or schaeuble's fingerprints in datenschleuder. or various other demonstrations.
mats_cd03: assbot :(
chetty has low skin oil, they have a hard time getting prints when I go thru immigration :P

assbot: BBC NEWS | World | Asia-Pacific | Malaysia car thieves steal finger
chetty: its pretty funny actually, really annoys those folks that expect the fingerprint scanners to work :)
asciilifeform: chetty: the whole purpose of 'biometric' crap is to administratively fix the designated chump as the permanently-designated chump.
decimation: bounce: not so easy to 'check for life'
bounce: fingers to make it unchangeable, technology to make it infallible. perfect combination, no?
asciilifeform: 'it was your print, therefore it was you, now shuddup'
bounce: even if it was easy, it's pointless
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 26014 @ 0.00074074 = 19.2696 BTC [+]
asciilifeform: engineers, who (as shown by the 'monolith' gedankenexperiment, search logs) often do not really apprehend how lizard-reich and its subordinate bureaucracies really think.
asciilifeform: the purpose of biometrics is to protect the system against -you-, rather than you against sc4mz0rz.
chetty: they think?
asciilifeform: fish swim?
bounce: engineers do, make, fix, etc. thinking starts maybe once the tech is widely deployed and cannot be put back in the box.
chetty: well to be fair some of them think, but mostly with their bellies and other body parts
decimation: asciilifeform: the 'weapons will not be issued' link is hilarious
bounce didn't find much
asciilifeform: my hypothesis re: biometrics is, imho, the only one proposed so far that has explanatory power for the fact that idiotically lame, e.g., fingerprint readers, nevertheless are happily deployed en masse by usg
asciilifeform: they do not care if they actually, in physical reality, work. only that the results are considered prima facie evidence that whatever Officially happened - happened.
bounce: fits with the rest of the evidence about the other systems deployed by parties using this
asciilifeform: this is why you see fp readers at usg facilities, in consumer finance, iPnohes, etc.
decimation: asciilifeform: there's an even deeper truth there - the reality is that usg doesn't have the 'People' needed to determine actual truth
decimation: so all they can do is make a cardboard cutout robot of a 'person'
bounce: corollary: since parties deploying this are out to get you, not help you, they should be avoided. or neutralised.
asciilifeform: in as far as the crown goes, 'actual truth' is a matter between you and your gods
bounce: feh. they have the people. they're just wasting resources on big large expensive machines that go 'ping'. they /could/ be hiring people for that money, but they're not.
decimation: true, but at least in the early days the king's men would go out and hear cases, and judge them as they saw fit
bounce: to the point of buying massive amounts of machinery then _leaving much of it crated in storage_
decimation: the 'king's justice' has been watered down to "present your id card"
decimation: bounce: they employ plenty of warm bodies, very few people
bounce: on a somewhat lighter note, compare "state of the art" datacentres with biometric access measures.
asciilifeform: thing is, modern 'rights states' (see some of mircea_popescu's pieces) create a problem - various 'rights' are Officially proclaimed, that, were they actually exercised en masse, would make the entire scamatron collapse overnight.
decimation: bounce: that's glitz that's designed to sell space
asciilifeform: 'unprincipled exceptions' (no you don't get to cross the street if the Fuhrer is within 1km) only go so far.
asciilifeform: here's a little mindfuck, for those still awake:
bounce already had the hunch that we'd be better off with a lot less "rights", but with the ones we do have, properly observed.
decimation: asciilifeform: and when the masses try to call the government to deliver on their promises (revolutionary France) everything collapses
asciilifeform: there were studies which appear to show that fingeprints are not, in fact, as unique as popularly believed
assbot: Brandon Mayfield - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
bounce thinks the amount of "security" around POTUS is both its own show and another sign that el presidente is not in fact in control of the government faculties
asciilifeform: and actual trials where this fact was brought in - and always the crown's side would proclaim - 'this is not a fact because simply inconceivable, law and order would collapse.'
assbot: MiSiS Mess: New LAUSD computer system falters
bounce: hehe. did the judge fall for that ploy?
asciilifeform: what do you think.
mats_cd03: list a few of those trials?
decimation: bounce: the purpose of the security around the president is so the bureaucrats who really run usg can demonstrate their enthusiasm for the current symbol-in-chief
asciilifeform: take the story with a grain of salt, perhaps i hallucinated it. if anyone can find the documents in question, post here.
mats_cd03: on the subject of trials, my research is going swimmingly. roughly 20% finished.
bounce: noteworthy is that in the 100+ years fingerprinting has been in use, there's been something like one limited study (30k fingerprints or so), and that's it.
asciilifeform: ;;google fingerprints not unique
gribble: Why your fingerprints may not be unique - Telegraph: <>; Law enforcement myth exposed: Fingerprints are not unique ...: <>; Is Fingerprint Evidence Sound Science? - ABC News: (1 more message)
asciilifeform: 'justice is incidental to law and order.' (j. e. hoover, famously)
decimation: "The FBI described the fingerprint match as "100% verified". According to the court documents in judge Ann Aiken's decision, this information was largely "fabricated and concocted by the FBI and DOJ". When the FBI finally sent Mayfield's fingerprints to the Spanish authorities, they contested the matching of the fingerprints from Brandon Mayfield to the ones associated with the Madrid bombing."
assbot: The Myth of Fingerprints
bounce: all good and well to want to avoid societal collapse, but to pretend biology would willingly accomodate you there is maybe a bit much. the judge's answer thus is a good measure of the quality of the judicial branch
asciilifeform: what judge, in what 20th c. totalitarian state tendril (which is 100% of planet earth as we speak) would dare disagree?
decimation: fingerprints are part of the general 'forensics' pseudoscience that is used as an aid in reducing the number of thinking people required to throw a chump in the gulag
bounce: too few, but I won't wager it'll be zero
chetty: well as soon as there is fingerprint evidence on someone they want to get off
asciilifeform: nah then they magick it away.
asciilifeform: or produce same, for a scapegoat.
decimation: asciilifeform: after all, only experts can make the right 'match'
bounce: fingerprints work reasonably well as criminal corrobating evidence. as soon as that gets forgotten that the matching is taken as a binary guilty decision, then we have guaranteed miscarriages of justice all over
asciilifeform: and not simply a device for fooling jury (not all jurisdictions have jury trials) but for eliciting confession through intimidation (as 'lie detector' was once used for)
decimation: 'lie detector' is still used for this purpose against usg employees
bounce: or, as the case may be, fraud with cards and such
bounce: oh yes, the fbi is still the biggest lie detector fanclub, possibly after scientology
decimation: which means of course that everyone who works for the fbi is a 'believer'
asciilifeform: not necessarily, just willing to undergo the sacrament.
asciilifeform: (see mp's piece on 'methodism')
chetty: jajajaja sacrament, good way of putting it
bounce: to climb up you may have to be a believer
asciilifeform: the 'method' idea is possibly lifted from the jewish tradition (where you are not, in fact, asked to believe in god, but to simply carry out the program, as i understand.)
decimation: asciilifeform: yeah but the very least the ses brass and their 'internal affairs' folks are believers (or at least unwilling to pretend otherwise)
asciilifeform: bounce: it is not really necessary to believe in anything to 'climb up.' in fact, it would seriously get in the way.

ben_vulpes: asciilifeform: 'carry out the program' << yup.

assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 10900 @ 0.00073891 = 8.0541 BTC [-]
asciilifeform: incidentally, 'trial by ordeal' - in particular, methods which involve functions of the parasympathetic nervous system, e.g., hot coals or modern 'lie detector' - are ancient.
decimation: I suspect it helps reinforce the 'us vs. them' thing
asciilifeform: and to the degree that there is a function, it is to select for 'cold psychopath' (or whatever the fashionable term for the beast is.)
decimation: asciilifeform: I agree that's the end effect, but in a supposedly 'democratic' government the idea is terrifying
decimation: interestingly I don't think the kgb used polygraphs very much
asciilifeform: decimation: much of the effect can be accomplished through lower-tech 'human' methods instead.
asciilifeform: afaik most of the use was in order to familiarize men with a torment the enemy was fond of using.
decimation: yeah makes sense
asciilifeform: i'd imagine modern ru has adopted the ritual. just the same as 'everything western' was lifted, for good or ill, in the '90s.

asciilifeform favours the return of hot coals - cheaper, more effective, more picturesque.
asciilifeform: or the variant where they lick red-hot iron.
asciilifeform: a 'modernized' version of above could have candidates grasp a live wire for a second.
decimation: but asciilifeform - they would lose their excellent taste!
asciilifeform: only if fail.
chetty: perfect, the witch trials, only the innocent drown
decimation: I guess the leidenfrost effect would protect you if done correctly
asciilifeform: not entirely the same thing (though usually presented as similar)
asciilifeform: the coals, red iron, lie detector - actually measure parasympathetic nervous response to stress etc
asciilifeform: decimation: yes.
assbot: "The Secret Team, The CIA and Its Allies in Control of the United States and the World"
bounce: I don't even mind fingerprints as such that much -- when used as corroborating evidence established by an expert -- but wholesale fingerprinting of everyone for essentially no reason ("passing customs") and automated "matching" is an enabler for insidious systemic malice that really is a problem on its own.

mircea_popescu: PinkPosixPXE could it not be pdf ?
mircea_popescu: ah i guess you meant the comments huh.
PinkPosixPXE: I've searched far and wide, only a pdf version of his slides, I imagine they were just markers for him. But the commentary in the thread, specifically the first user, bullet points some of the main topics.
PinkPosixPXE: Best I could find, no video/recorded broadcast on the H2HC site or anywhere for that matter. :/

mircea_popescu: o look, asciilifeform named his site after his intended os. like that temple guy!

asciilifeform: that is, will operate precisely as intended while the latter does.
asciilifeform: undata: the idea, as described on my site, is deadly-simple - no need for server, you 'speak' by sending btc to an address. others 'hear' by seeing what was sent. if the channel owner (owner of privkey to address) decides that you are persona non grata, you never see your coin again. otherwise, it is sent back after a while.

mircea_popescu: bounce: all good and well to want to avoid societal collapse, but to pretend biology would willingly accomodate you there is maybe a bit much. the judge's answer thus is a good measure of the quality of the judicial branch << you have to understand that pious fraud was a lot more fashionable in 1914 than it is today
mircea_popescu: part of the reason is post structuralism and deconstructivism. the other part is the internet.
mircea_popescu: in any case, most of the stuff justice relies on to function is actually broken and couldn't stand scrutiny. ironically, the older it is, the more apt it is regarded by the amply conservative mechanism of justice ; yet the more likely to be flawed irretrievavbly
mircea_popescu: as anything made by men who are not cool enough to live with cocksucking sluts is suspect.
mircea_popescu: and so... fingerprints ? lol. but they're being replaced with "dna proof". which IS more selective,

mircea_popescu: even better for "managing system state" would be making the system simpler.
mats_cd03: the VM is for protecting you from docker, nto the other way around
mircea_popescu: so basically it's crud.
mats_cd03: its not known to not be crud.
mats_cd03: hasn't existed for long enough.
undata: mircea_popescu: docker does run the risk of merely snapshotting the wad of mess and saying "ok, this wad worked, kind of" rather than actually understanding system state
mircea_popescu: no, i odn't mean its actual composition. i mean its design.
mircea_popescu: it comes from the cloacal opening of an intestine.

mircea_popescu: What if the terrorists hear about fast secure crypto? Yikes! Similar to constant-time story. Don’t standardize good crypto. Discourage use of good crypto. If the good crypto persists, try to bury it behind a huge menu of bad options. Advertise “cryptographic agility”; actually cryptographic fragility. Pretend that this “agility” justifies using breakable crypto.
mircea_popescu: here's the scoop : if the usg does not standardize good crypto, mp WILL. and the result wil be that mp's standards will drive the nist out of the market.
asciilifeform: i still can't fathom why they're not having their muppets push the 'all this derp is because they really broke rsa in the '90s' angle.

diametric: asciilifeform: docker's purpose isn't security per se. an escape can be irrelevant. if anything its a nice system for compartmentalizing your system and preventing the pollution of your filesystem with random libraries needed by a single application.
mircea_popescu: seems kinda clear. who's going to spend a coupla btc to get it back out of the hole ?
asciilifeform: diametric: aha i recall, a la bsd jail, yes.
diametric: asciilifeform: now if you're relying on docker to be a jail for the purposes of security, than that alone isn't ideal.
mike_c: ok. so i guess that was mpif's 2m atc getting out
asciilifeform: so more of a parrot cage than a jail for man.
diametric: its like a jail + management system on top of it
diametric: what you end up with is an image you can use on any linux running docker, be it ubuntu, gentoo, arch or lfs.
kakobrekla: <mike_c> ok. so i guess that was mpif's 2m atc getting out < my thought was its the 60th guy
