BingoBoingo: It really is
danielpbarron: lol ya, my redditvote made the qntra comment go to the top
BingoBoingo: lol
danielpbarron: weew i made hope and change happen
BingoBoingo: I still doesn't look like one of the many crap spewing anuses pretending to news because of forgoing bootstrap is not a design virtue.
asciilifeform failed to parse this sentence ^
BingoBoingo: Coindesk for axample is an anus. It looks like it uses Bootstrap (mobile first design turd). I dunno how visual difference between Qntra and an anus is not a net positive.
assbot: Spinal Codes ... ( )
asciilifeform annoyed, ^ remarkably similar to an idea he had been chewing on
mircea_popescu: lol
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform why's that annoying you ?
undata: qntra could have a media query to change the width on mobile.. just sayin
undata: I use an rss reader so it doesn't affect me either way
mircea_popescu: don't smartphones autoadjust ?
undata: mircea_popescu: yes, but as qntra has what appears to be a fixed pixel width it ends up with rather small fonts on mine
cazalla: mircea_popescu, Qntra is not perfect, at least not on an iphone but it's readable
mircea_popescu: cazalla prolly should get rid of absolute px specification in favour of %s
undata: I am otherwise totally unoffended by the minimalism
undata: mircea_popescu: yes

mircea_popescu: maybe qntra should pay dividends in social media crap.
thestringpuller: can i use karma to buy MPOE?
cazalla: yeah, lots of comments and feedback and bad advices
thestringpuller: at least gavin's enemies came out of the woodwork...
mircea_popescu: any substance to this "Tony "I Like Underage Girls" Gallippi" angle something awful's pushing ?
thestringpuller: yea
thestringpuller: cazalla has da full scoop on that
thestringpuller: it's old news tho I thought
cazalla: he was just the cameraman, what's the problem?!?!
thestringpuller: "cameraman" lol
mircea_popescu: fill me in ?
cazalla: actually, i don't know the full story, i think thestringpuller has that
thestringpuller: man this was months ago
thestringpuller: we were researching and found a few articles saying he was setting up underage girl shoots
thestringpuller: was technically legal, but sketchy as hell
thestringpuller: lemme see if I can do some digging
cazalla: mircea_popescu, he's allege to have run a glamourshots business but claimed he was only the cameraman, i dunno the facts tbh
mircea_popescu: i thought it was that other derp that got put away for something pedo related
mircea_popescu: some expert i wrote about at some point
thestringpuller: << there we go
mircea_popescu: how is bitpay being run by a fucking cameraman
cazalla: how is it not?
mircea_popescu: heh i guess that's a point
mircea_popescu: lol ok, i recall this now.
undata: dude can't even opsec his pedo-ing and he wants my coin
mircea_popescu: of course, all this wasn't exactly exceptional in 2002 or w/e.
asciilifeform: why's that annoying you << i have a heuristic for picking lines of inquiry that's heavily weighted against what i know other folks to be doing
asciilifeform: it makes life more interesting.
thestringpuller: ^- so do vidya games
mircea_popescu: "Lets not forget the real paid shills on /r/bitcoin as well. The fuckwits who were paid to spread the usage of 'bit' as a unit. I wonder how much BitPay spent on that one." << that's a kinda funny one. yet another place where derps diverge from mp, derps fail & get burned, derps dun learn.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform yeah but i mean... so it's great, less shit to worry about, someone else;s doing it.
mircea_popescu: i guess im just lazy.
thestringpuller: mircea_popescu: it's interesting to see some of the derps waking up and exiting the cave.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu presumably does not say 'glad somebody else is doing this!' when sees gurl being ravished from long way away
mircea_popescu: "How much did the Bitcoin Bowl cost? Was it really worth sacrificing nine of your best and brightest?" << heh. once you put it like that, it burns.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform if she likes it ? why not ?
mircea_popescu: i can't fuck em all god help me.
undata: !b3
asciilifeform: 'why not' isn't quite the same as 'glad i don't have to!'
undata: bah I lose
mircea_popescu: ok, you got me there, but still.
assbot: ... ( )
mircea_popescu: in unrelated news, im kinda blown away that the point that an eulogy's job is to illustrate how great the deceased was and how worthless the world by comparison is somehow controversial.
mircea_popescu: is this because reddit is too young to have given much thought to funerals etc ?
BingoBoingo: Prolly
mircea_popescu: but i mean... they're in literature too.
mircea_popescu: well, i guess not in o'reilly stuff. hm.
mircea_popescu: "an eulogy guide for dummies" ?
asciilifeform: do plebe funerals still have eulogies?
asciilifeform: or just an excavator, cement mixer, and some beer ?
BingoBoingo: "professional mourner"
BingoBoingo: Except promoted to Eulogies
asciilifeform: those date to at least babylon
BingoBoingo: Instead of merely sobbing
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i've been to plenty of great ones.
mircea_popescu: tbh pleb funerals prolly beat fancypants funerals. tho maybe that doesn't hold in fake-usia

asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: blown away that the point that an eulogy's job is to illustrate how great the deceased was and how worthless the world by comparison is somehow controversial << their problem is with the second half of the sentence. which is, of course, entirely like disdaining one side of the battery

mircea_popescu: "And now in practical terms : there once existed this thing called NeoBee. It pretended to be a Bitcoin business, but inasmuch as its purported CEO was not in #bitcoin-assets, it never stood a chance. This is a point oft neglected, but by far the best predictor of success or failure in the Bitcoin space : that channel is where the industry meets. If a purported business is not well represented in there, it is not well

fluffypony: @media screen and (max-width: 640px) { /* all the qntra CSS goes here */ }

davout: yeah well, maybe
davout: my point is that i'm interested in the content, so as long as html is used sanely it should display in a meaningful way
davout: "can't mobile drop css itself ?" <<< yeah, that would solve it, but afaik there's no such feature :/
mircea_popescu: ...

mircea_popescu: isn't that idiotic ?

mircea_popescu: i just don' tsee how i'd use a browser w/o that
fluffypony: Mobile Safari has Reader mode for many pages, which is exactly that
BingoBoingo: Also... Qntra still for the forseeable future does full text in its RSS feed.

I would project all of my self-hatred onto this woman so I could avoid actually working on m

thestringpuller: And that's very much what I think this war comes down to. Not block size or anything else. Just the simple fact: You are either for changing bitcoin for YOUR needs, or you are willing to adapt to bitcoin.

mircea_popescu: what does kruschev say ? :D
davout: kakobrekla: btw if you ever change your mind about documenting that optical device you mentioned earlier, a happy would be me
mircea_popescu: better yet manufacture & sell it ? :D
jurov: the serial cable with buffer would suffice for a start
davout: mircea_popescu: if i don't know how it works and how i take it apart i ain't buying it :D
mircea_popescu: yeah obv. just, imo better economics all around once that's on the table.
davout: jurov: i'm trying to figure out exactly what the desirable properties of such an apparatus are
mircea_popescu: of airgaps ?
davout: mircea_popescu: yeah, no argument here, does it come with t-shirts?
mircea_popescu: hopefully lol
davout: yeah, well the questions i'm thinking about are
jurov: davout i assume it has a display and "ack" button that transmits the message, and nak button
davout: should you be able to log what goes through the airgap somehow?
davout: how do you ensure what goes in on one side of the airgap is what goes out?
mircea_popescu: well ideally by keeping the pieces simple.
kakobrekla: i call it 'the gaper' as a tribute to ass gapes.
mircea_popescu: lol
mircea_popescu: also, if it has a display, that's your auditor
davout: jurov: yeah, that's the manual case, but you might want to design an automated airgap
mircea_popescu: no lma
mircea_popescu: wtf is wrong with you ?
jurov: lolwut?
davout: wat
mircea_popescu: automated airgap = turning around 360 degrees ?
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 8250 @ 0.00053717 = 4.4317 BTC [-] {2}
kakobrekla: 720 actually.
mircea_popescu: let's argue about it.
davout: wondering about what makes sense and what doesn't here
jurov: what's the problem with manual checks?
mircea_popescu: davout for all you know the internet is already automatically airgapped to all hell.
davout: no probs with manual checks
mircea_popescu: each hop in a traceroute
jurov: so then why you want it to be automatic?
davout: well, maybe there are some use cases where you want a uni-directional airgap
davout: or maybe you want to enforce that only some sort of messages go through
davout: guess that doesn't really count as an airgap if there isn't a manual step
mircea_popescu: like a diode yeah. conceivably. not what an airgap is toh
mircea_popescu: semiconductors aren't insulators.
davout: just don't put an emitter on the airgapped machine, no need for fancy semiconductors :D
mircea_popescu: not what i meant
mircea_popescu: i meant, your directional, or message-aware or otherwise "airgap" is a semiconductor in the flux
mircea_popescu: not an airgap (which is simply an insulator)
davout: we were discussing airgaps earlier, with a good solution being optics, right?
mircea_popescu: right
davout: so if you don't put a light emitter on the airgap machine you necessarily end up with a one-way airgap, right?
davout: that's the case i was thinking about, therefore not seeing a direct link to semi-conductors
mircea_popescu: well in the theoretical sense of your q, yes.
mircea_popescu: a diode is exactly this : current goes one way but not the other.
davout: yup, a diode
mircea_popescu: so think of your thing as a meta-diode.
jurov: the airgap isn't about technology, but about being in complete control
mircea_popescu: it doesn't work on electric flux, but "communication" flux
davout: yes
mircea_popescu: a diode, generally speaking, is a semiconductor.
jurov: if you cede control to software then it's not airgap anymore
davout: jurov: yup, no argument here
mircea_popescu: but an airgap is not a semiconductor. the technical argument can be brougth that obviously semiconductors insulate
mircea_popescu: at least some of the time.
mircea_popescu: this is valid, but not what airgap means
davout: more like a 'human cable'
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 37651 @ 0.0005072 = 19.0966 BTC [-] {2}

mircea_popescu: kakobrekla: you need to get one of those cardanos. << lol it wouldn't be legal.
thestringpuller: is the cardano technically an airgap?
mircea_popescu: if it were, all drug lords / mafia kingpins would be in jail, offloading the cost of their security to the state, while they kept at their biz.
kakobrekla: those ppl dont care for legal, thats why they are there.

mircea_popescu: nsparent do you want it?

mircea_popescu: this adventure makes it quite obvious how the entire libertard political machine is intended to function. sort-of like, it ran into a ravine, now it's suspended, ands you can walk under it safely and admire all the pistons and whatnot without much risk.
mircea_popescu: reminds me of a much older but quite central asciilifeform point : "These fools have been handed a technology so clever, so disruptive and revolutionary, that the rulers of the world would have to fully unmask themselves as ruthless tyrants in order to suppress it, — or give up their thrones on their own free will — if it were used correctly, that is."
mircea_popescu: apparently... it is being used correctly eh.
asciilifeform: ilkka kokkarinen liked to call this concept 'heightening the contradictions.' also known as 'make'em gas you'
mircea_popescu: so far it;'s a lot more predictive-dialectic. "this is what you will say, and this is why you will be saying it, and this is how you'll respond to the previous statement, and this is why you did that, and this is how..."
mircea_popescu: supposedly the only form of psychotherapy that works. takes a while tho.

BingoBoingo: WolfGoet_: Prosecutors get to pile on all of the charges they can imagine. Many will die before trial, more die at jury deliberation, the ones a defendant gets sentenced on might reflect a tenth of what the inital charges scared the defendant into pleaing.
BingoBoingo: 30 years proposed by a prosecutor is often 2-3 years by the time one has to report to jail.

mircea_popescu: "[EDIT2] I've never seen so much stupidty concentrated in the same space as so much unpleasantness since I was in high school. Even if Popescu and his friends are right, they deserve to be left on a fork and lose all their precious play-money. This is why I usually avoid reading anything non-technical about Bitcoin. I'm going back to that policy, the pain was not worth the Quora credits."
mircea_popescu: they DESERVE.
mircea_popescu: because that's how teh internets work
mircea_popescu: ah this rape will be like... the sweetest rape in the history of that generally sweet article.

mircea_popescu: "Not the least of my reasons is that Mircea Popescu seems to be a thoroughly dislikeable, arrogant, smug, elitist and condescending chap. He makes every disagreement a personal dispute between his own superior intellect and the stupid idiots that are not him. His attitude towards Andresen, the public, the poor and the residents of Mali is despicable."
mircea_popescu: despicable eh ?
BingoBoingo: Fuck If I get this library job I interviewed for next week I am buying 30 petahash and forcing this issue.
BingoBoingo: How are all of those words not compliments.
BingoBoingo: Those words are merely mediocre praise compared to what I lavish on Kakobrekla.
mircea_popescu: "[EDIT] There is an explanation of the possible problem with increasing the block size in the comment section here Gavin Andresen Proposes Scalability Roadmap and Hardfork, which is much more informative that Mr Popsescu's own vindictive rambling."
mircea_popescu: "oh look, what mp said back in october when he was being nice about it is a lot easier to follow than what he's saying now, once the fuckwits in question ignored the polite approach. isn't it mp's fault that gavin is an idiot!"
mircea_popescu: "and also it's his fault mali is poor!"
mircea_popescu: fatlogic, nice going.
mike_c: well, at least he acknowledged your superior intellect ;)
mircea_popescu: heh
mircea_popescu: if you look at it, so fucking weird what burns these people.
mircea_popescu: "o no, he said he's smarter than me!11"
mircea_popescu: "where"
mircea_popescu: "well... he implied it!"
mircea_popescu: "how ?
BingoBoingo: The thing the fuckers are incapable of ever acknowledging will be the later less polite arguments. They are inoculated agaisnt it. When they come to reason everything the cite will have been written in 2013.
BingoBoingo: !up tripleslash
mircea_popescu: "by not specifying otherwise multiple times and using these prefab expressions"

BingoBoingo: Make people learn.
[\\\]: hold on, I'll get it
[\\\]: and no, imsaguy needs to die.
BingoBoingo: Pretty sure he can't unless...
pirateat40: this is available
mircea_popescu: i kinda liked imsaguy
BingoBoingo: imsaguy is a naturally repentant name.
BingoBoingo: bunch of non letter characters seems cancerous.
