decimation: and washington dc is definitely a midwestern city - where else are people going to get jobs? ohio?
mircea_popescu: ah, spice is a different story tho. they can eat pretty hot, especially in the se.
mircea_popescu: but! flavour and hotness are different. flavour's a billion different sulphides, alcohols, aromatics etc
mircea_popescu: hotness is half a dozen capseins.
decimation: yeah that's true
mod6: in v0.5.3, afaik, it looks for dups, then (with checkpoints) it checks to see if the block has a timestamp previous to the last checkpoint, then if it can't find a prev block it puts it in a holding area until one is found.
mircea_popescu: checkpoint only ?
mircea_popescu: that's pretty dumb.
mod6: Lastly, it recursively processes any orphan blocks that are depended on it, and deletes them from the map.

mircea_popescu: a 900 block long orphan that's 5 blocks shorter than the main chai nshould not be discarded.
mircea_popescu: a 2 block orphan that's 122 blocks shorter than the main chain is never going to be main.

assbot: circular laser engraver engineering [ Bounty ] ... ( )
nubbins`: ^ for lulz
mircea_popescu: undata if the air and food weren't meeting you couldn't likely speak
mircea_popescu: "I would be willing to offer a negotiable fee or bounty to anyone who could solve this engineering problem."
mircea_popescu: shit, let's do a cold fusion and circle cvadrature bounty on tardstalk!
nubbins`: heh
nubbins`: funny thing is, he was trying to solve this problem specifically for Blazedout419's $14,000 piece
nubbins` chuckles
mircea_popescu: tsk
undata: needing to make noise and generally not wanting to duplicate effort makes a fair amount of sense
mircea_popescu: win.
undata: also helps to be able to blow blockage out
undata accepts there is a loving lord
mircea_popescu: just evolutionarily discovered good design
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 26555 @ 0.00047552 = 12.6274 BTC [+] {2}
nubbins`: HEH yep
hanbot: is it really that hard a problem? what if you use a second laser to measure distance and focus the cutter?
danielpbarron: i bet he did the engraving on a disc and cut the B out after
punkman: you need a laser that doesn't just move in cartesian plane, solved problem but expensive
hanbot: it's always a polar "plane" anyway no?
punkman: what is?
hanbot: i imagine what you mean is that the cheapo laser has fixed distance focus. then it would cut on a spheric surface not really a cartesian plane.
hanbot: if it can actually adjust focus distance to make a real plane, then can adjust focus distance.
asciilifeform: jurov: << e.g., this, is probably not supposed to happen. (click on identified, finds nothing.)
assbot: HEAD identifier search: CMerkleBlock ... ( )
punkman: hanbot, oic what you mean. I don't know much about lasers, but I think focus adjustment wouldn't help for the vase example.

hanbot: ianae either.
asciilifeform: laser << can get as many axes as you want to pay for. diametric, iirc, has a 3-axis.
ben_vulpes: <mircea_popescu> ben_vulpes wait, this was a little girl ? << yeah
ben_vulpes: man i gotta get better at telling stories.
hanbot: maybe she just liked you

mircea_popescu: nubbins` you know in retrospect, i don't actually blame the woodcarver idiot. he's just some monkey doing what he should be doing : monkeying.
mircea_popescu: i blame undressen horowitz and paul graham and fucking bill gates. that's who i blame.
mircea_popescu: and a whole shitload of "charity" in africa isn't going towash this off of them. poor monkey is doing what they claiemd he should be doing. fucking frauds.
mircea_popescu: he's exactly their fucking poster child : politically aware, rhetorically prepared, ready to lie and fake it all the way.
mircea_popescu: lol totally ben_vulpes hanbot has it : the little nubbin was angling for your ass.
asciilifeform: ben_vulpes, mod6, jurov, mircea_popescu: << that thing.
assbot: test - Imgur ... ( )
mircea_popescu: all worx?
asciilifeform: object on right hand side of photograph is plastic lid (why??? ask them, not me. with it on, the device looks precisely like the non-sata version.)
asciilifeform: presently backing up the original contents, to restore later (why? so can test auto-diddler that pumps in everything in one go.)
asciilifeform: it still remains to be answered, what these are for.
asciilifeform: i.e. is user expecting an interface of some kind? or just running a node for the warm emotions
mircea_popescu: running node for the purpose of having nodes on the network.
asciilifeform: and how is he to know that the machine is working ?
mircea_popescu: he's not really to care.
mircea_popescu: also,
assbot: ... ( )
asciilifeform: well, what if trivial malfunction (frayed cable, or he forgot to forward port 8333 or whatnot)
asciilifeform: recall that we snipped upnp.
asciilifeform: i'd suggest sticking a simple status display (blocks synched, connection count) on port 80.
asciilifeform: (on lan, naturally)
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform nah, because guy knows the ip and can just check if a node answers there
mircea_popescu: if not, throw out unit get new one.
asciilifeform: he may want to know if the disk has filled.
mircea_popescu: can pull it out.
asciilifeform: sure.
asciilifeform: so we just want a simple brutal beast of 0.5.3-on-a-unix-box ?
mircea_popescu: pretty much.
jurov: asciilifeform: fixed, CMerkleBlock isn't supposed to be in 0.5.3 but i have put there newer cpp files by mistake
mircea_popescu: dude don't mix the shitstrands
asciilifeform: jurov: seems entirely dead now
jurov: O.o
asciilifeform: jurov: click on any of the sources.
jurov: irc.cpp does not exist but others work
asciilifeform: half what i'm seeing is a link to nowhere
asciilifeform: but yeah, main.cpp works
mircea_popescu: nighty!
jurov: drat, i'll redo it anyway
jurov: this amazon caching really adds another dimension to everything

decimation: asciilifeform: what kind of buses are available on your pogo board? and is it the "pogoplug mobile"?
asciilifeform: decimation: pogo-v4-a3-01
asciilifeform: decimation: under top cover, usb port (usb2?) and sata (2.5 inch laptop drive.) on rear end, two usb3 ports and 1 Gbit ethernet, and dc in (12 volt.)
asciilifeform: decimation: this is not the cheapest (~$12) but second-cheapest (~$18) 'pogo.'
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 25030 @ 0.00047499 = 11.889 BTC [+] {3}
decimation: hmm interesting
decimation: so one could get a usb3 to ethernet and make a cheap router too
asciilifeform: decimation: slow and wasteful
decimation: albeit a reliable usb3 to ethernet dongle is probably more costly than the device
asciilifeform: decimation: for slightly more one can get an actual router with multiple gbit ethernet jacks.
decimation wonders if any of this consumer grade junk has ecc ram
danielpbarron: if you're gonna run buttcoin on something called a "pogo plug," you could call it a buttplug

mats: on a scale of one to linus
mats: at least two linus
thestringpuller: im headed there myself :D
mats: pour one out for the niggas that we've lost
thestringpuller: lol
thestringpuller: fine
thestringpuller: my window is open I'll pour a sip of the beer out
mats: im doing post coital malware analysis and i dont think ive ever been more high on anything ever
mats: thanks, patron (you owe me residuals for this plug)
