BingoBoingo: Indeed, delicious. Oxtail is also good slow cooked on a kettle grill and finished in sauce a lot like people do with pork and brisket.
BingoBoingo: Brains and eggs I remember as being good, but since this continent has deer with CJD and the UK had mad cow, have to settle for making it with pork brains.

pete_dushenski: "Researchers for Moscow-based Kaspersky Lab spent more than two weeks trying to crack the MD5 hash using a computer that tried more than 300 billion plaintext guesses every second. After coming up empty-handed, they enlisted the help of password-cracking experts, both privately and on Twitter, in hopes they would do better. Password crackers Jens Steube and Philipp Schmidt spent only a few hours before figuring
pete_dushenski: out the plaintext behind the hash e6d290a03b70cfa5d4451da444bdea39 was غير مسجل, which is Arabic for "unregistered". The hex-encoded string for the same Arabic word is dbedd120e3d3cce1."

gribble: | (abstract noun or proper noun) A person, especially one not mentioned by name. Hooby doesn't have one. Who? Hooby! Hooby who? by krom23456 January ...
asciilifeform: PeterL: any fab process that requires clean room is ipso facto irrelevant to the question of 'home fab'
ben_vulpes: "garbage fab"
mircea_popescu: it could be clean breadbox.
mircea_popescu: but not room
asciilifeform: clean football-sized compartment is difficult enough in jungle conditions
asciilifeform: ditto high vacuum
PeterL: how big is a chip fab clean room?
mircea_popescu: depends on how big the fab is
asciilifeform: PeterL: factory floor
ben_vulpes: 500 - whole buildings
mircea_popescu: the problem with clean is largely a matter of size. it's easier to keep a large space clean.
asciilifeform: the thing that absolutely must be understood by anyone with any inkling of an interest in the subject is
ben_vulpes: also, depends on the degree of cleanliness required.
mircea_popescu: proof of this being the cosmic space.
asciilifeform: it does no good to take extant ic fab practice and work 'down'
asciilifeform: no good at all
asciilifeform: have to reinvent the entire stack.
mircea_popescu: no, im sure this is understood.
PeterL: need to reinvent it at a smaller, cheaper scale?
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: the folks mentioning clean rooms show symptoms of not having understood
asciilifeform: PeterL: emphatically not. not 'smaller cheaper' what-they-do-now.
asciilifeform: entirely different process
mircea_popescu: basically this is quickly becoming a problem of logjammed. "we need a decent-er system design, to make oses on". "yes, for which we nbeed a new chip paradigm". "yes, which really needs better systems design for oses and such". "yes, which..."
asciilifeform: that would have considerably less in common with the existing one than 'cd-r burner' with pressed aluminum disks, or '3d printer' with injection mold press
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 71500 @ 0.00042313 = 30.2538 BTC [-] {2}
mircea_popescu: ironically, it may actually have a lot in common with the cd-r burner.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: hypothetical chip fab experiment does not require new computer.
mircea_popescu: motivation to make it however, does.
asciilifeform: and yes, it would have some resemblance to cd-r
asciilifeform: but realize that cd-r 'cheats' by having existing guide marks
mircea_popescu: i wonder, and bear with my layered ignorance on all matters of import, but i wonder :
mircea_popescu: is there some way to make this actually BE junk ? like, for instance, make an item that prints logic gates on cds, old abandoned cds ?
PeterL: and cd-r moves basically one dimension
mircea_popescu: you can then make an item that looks sort-of like an 1990s "art" installation, except it does logic ?
mircea_popescu: as in, build it from garbage up, exactly how the current stack was built.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: that's actually reminiscent of one idea i looked into - optical logic produced photographically via laser
mircea_popescu: basically, I want to play music ? i can now get a 5 x 6 sheet of polyester, glue cds on it printed with this thing, and plug it in.
mircea_popescu: it .. sort of... kinda plays derpy 8 bit mono something.
asciilifeform: but cd-r blanks ain't it.
asciilifeform: intrinsic spiral pattern in the whole shebang.
mircea_popescu: i just meant, use the items somehow.
asciilifeform: it isn't a universally-addressable polar coordinate laser cutter, if you were wondering.
mircea_popescu: it'd literally be a repurposing of garbage.
mircea_popescu: it isn't, but then again maybe it could be.
mircea_popescu: after all the disk is flat.
mircea_popescu: for that matter ... recall the discussions even here about the purely resisitive musicbox ?
asciilifeform: resistive ?
mircea_popescu: start it from something that's derpy but works, i say, rather than something that's clever, but doesn't.

asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: basic idea - sure
mircea_popescu: it's what you said.
mircea_popescu: in any case, strategically speaking, it will be a lot easier, cheaper and blood-economical to unseat the fiat atrocity supporting the welfare state by destroying the "industrial" paradigm.
mircea_popescu: but completely rather than just "progressively".
asciilifeform: but in practice, it has. i have a $$$$$ fpga board gathering dust because realized that it is impossible to implement ddr2 controller (and drive any available memory of reasonable density) without reversing the entire chip

asciilifeform: much less refine brass
asciilifeform: - that - continues to happen in izhevsk
ben_vulpes: i recall a story from a stephenson book, about a machine that computed with chains run through computing boxes
ben_vulpes: as the chains moved through the boxes, the boxes flipped bits on each link
asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: he had another book where computing happened by specially trained singers belting out gregorian-style chants
ben_vulpes: now, i beg pardon for my ignorance, but could not this model be adapted to the cd rw?
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform the industrial paradigm is not any one particular thing, but the idea that the production of material artefacts is the result of a process not of a will.
asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: this is called 'ladder logic' among factory automation folks
ben_vulpes: myes, i've been brutalized by it.
mircea_popescu: the traditional paradigm was artesanal - objects exists because someone willed them into existence.
mircea_popescu: gotta to revert to that.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: ultimately factory is an artifact of craftsmanship
asciilifeform: so in that sense craftsman never died.
mircea_popescu: in this sense your senator's also your representative.
mircea_popescu: assbot is pretty rugged isn't he.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform it's not a problem of technology asa much as ideology, you realise. currently, if you ask consumer why X item exists, it's because "that's what the factory makes". "and it has to be sold^H^H^H^H marketed to me". as opposed to, you know, because this is what I WANT.

mike_c: and does all the time. and is replaced trivially
jurov: well, have you read what herbijudlestoids wrote?

mike_c: hm, that seems different. enterprise cloud management.
mike_c: but the difficulty of IaaS is why reselling aws makes sense to me.
mike_c: if you buy a rack in a colo you'll never have the same kind of reliability
mike_c: look at the trouble mpex has had over the years.
jurov: you know, aws itself recommends "to get best reliability, have servers in multiple availabiltiy zones"
jurov: so, again, all but trivial stuff
mike_c: yes, i know. but i don't think you're disagreeing that colo will have lower reliability?
jurov: oh you're arguing reliability? i missed that
mike_c: i am arguing that the service will be more reliable and easier to run on aws than colo rack.
mike_c: it won't be cheaper. for the same reasons.
jurov: which service? if it's phuctor, i can imagine it relies on sole access to fast SSD storage.
jurov: this isn't something given on aws
mike_c: he said its cpu bound. but you can get IOPS provisioned on aws

jurov: mike_c pls don't alienate my customers

asciilifeform: no lie there - i told everyone it's languishing on aws.
jurov: if they know what they want, im not pressing it
asciilifeform: at no less than 30-50 usd/mo
asciilifeform: out of me lunch money
mike_c: don't listen to what they say. he is paying them, obviously it's the best option right now.
mike_c: customer's don't know what they want
jurov: l0l
asciilifeform: mike_c: worse than this. 1) i'm paying 2) not getting terribly much, have ~5mil keys that have not been dumped in on account of - elementarily - lack of cpu
mike_c: listen to what they do, not what they say. marketing 101.
mike_c: asciilifeform: so if you could get dedicated instance from jurovvps at non-ruinous cost this would be a good thing.
jurov: so you want me to sell him c3.something aws instance and lie to him it's physical?
asciilifeform: i've said it at least thrice, and will say a fourth time - all s.nsa expenses that are denominated in usd have been de-facto fronted by yours truly
asciilifeform: who has no safe way of converting so much as a bitcent to usd.
mike_c: jurov, no, don't lie. you could sell him exactly what he has now, but in btc, and he'd probably switch.
mike_c: down the road, with a bit of scale, you could sell him dedicated instance without ruinous one-time cost aws imposes
mike_c: and he'd buy that. he would still complain, but he'd pay.
jurov: at that price maybe a seat at my guerrilla home router.. but that one has only a celeron and main computer is too noisy to keep on all time
jurov: but i'll be asking around , we'll see
jurov: btw, dedi aws is not one-time cost. they ask $2/hour if *any* is running in the region
jurov: do your maffs.
mike_c: one-time not the right word. it's $2/hr if any, but not per-box.
mike_c: so if you resold x of them, you could charge $2 per hr / x.
jurov: and you're buying, like 10 of them?
jurov: or anyone here?
asciilifeform: for perspective,
mike_c: jurov is. and selling 1 to ascii, 1 to somebody else, etc.
asciilifeform: i'm renting a physical (yes) box for ~25 usd / mo
asciilifeform: for unrelated purpose
asciilifeform: no hidden costs
asciilifeform: no surcharges for bandwidth
mike_c: the hidden cost is when it eats shit.
jurov: was it ever ddosed?
mike_c: that too
asciilifeform: and remained standing
asciilifeform: the sheer audacity of the industry bamboozlement virtually everywhere - is astonishing
jurov: "remained standing" isn't hard. "they didn't kicked me" is.
asciilifeform: didn't kick, either
mike_c: did you get abuse reports? did they stand up to those?

ben_vulpes: just 'cause this one has css doesn't change the selection process.

asciilifeform: sbcl supports proper (native) threading for ages now, iirc
Adlai: "Tasks: 27, 90 thr"
asciilifeform: that doesn't answer why it needs >1 sbcl running
Adlai: it's 3 images for 4 bots, the two on the same exchange share an image; it's currently *possible* to run multiple on multiple exchanges from the same image, see 'lazyness etc'

decimation: asciilifeform: I was thinking about a 'home chip fab'
decimation: obviously modern lithography ain't gonna work
decimation: not to mention the provision of masks, etc
asciilifeform: the need for a steerable beam process is pretty clear
decimation: the beam would spray 'dope' in the appropriate spots?
asciilifeform: that'd be the extant 'ion beam workstation'
asciilifeform: not useful for our purposes
asciilifeform: as it demands high vacuum, among other finicky and expensive things
decimation: what if an actual fab created a grid of transistors, and a home laser could 'blow' the appropriate areas for the wanted logic
asciilifeform: this exists
asciilifeform: called antifuse fpga
asciilifeform: sucks for exactly the same reasons as ordinary fpga
asciilifeform: but sucks even harder
decimation: I'm sure it does
decimation: but we are talking chip printing
asciilifeform: that isn't chip printing
asciilifeform: that's existing idiocy.
asciilifeform: anyone who wants - open catalogue, buy right now.
decimation: I guess my point is that it seems to be science fiction to me
asciilifeform: welcome to propagation delays 100s of mSec long. and idiot proprietary toolchains
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 198233 @ 0.00044605 = 88.4218 BTC [+] {5}
asciilifeform: decimation: thus far, it is.
asciilifeform: no one has yet suggested a practical means of doing it.
asciilifeform: that i know of.
asciilifeform: the only thing that seems certain imho is that starting from existing concept of ic fab is a dead end
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 24267 @ 0.00044887 = 10.8927 BTC [+]
decimation: that I agree with
asciilifeform: probably needs entirely new chemistry.
decimation: I don't see how one could 'shrink' a fab into anything smaller than it is (as it currently exists)
asciilifeform: that's the wrong thought.
asciilifeform: we don't necessarily need to 'shrink the classical fab'
asciilifeform: but to somehow lay out electrical logic elements at the customary densities without resort to a $1B factory.
decimation: the alternative would be to have some kind of technology that would enable the precise manipulation of atoms at scale
asciilifeform: good thermodynamic reasons to conclude that it is not doable in the general case
asciilifeform: (resolves to 'maxwell's daemon')
decimation: then again, I can envision a tradition fab becoming cheaper
asciilifeform: as i pointed out earlier,
asciilifeform: none of the items that comprise most of the expense have changed since day one.
decimation: they get more expensive, depending on your inflation factor
decimation: high power euv light source isn't cheap
asciilifeform: high vacuum, for instance, is still achieved in much the same ways as in 1930s
asciilifeform: the energy required to melt Si is ever the same
asciilifeform: (but costlier, as decimation points out, with inflation)
decimation: there have been incremental improvements
decimation: but not the orders of magnitude needed
asciilifeform: nothing that threatens to put it in your friendly local illegal machine shop, much less your kitchen.
decimation: no, that would require a 'cheapening factor' of around 10000
asciilifeform for one would rather not have HF in his kitchen
decimation: it's good fer ur bones
decimation: asciilifeform: that was a neat link about ada
decimation: I wasn't aware that it was still going strong in non-defense areas
asciilifeform: i've learned that there is not actually a good substitute for ada, as of yet.
asciilifeform: as in, something that actually provides the same functionality
asciilifeform: without the 'bondage & discipline' stylistic aspects
decimation: the trouble is that it seems the real toolchains used by these projects are all $$$ commercial
asciilifeform: gnat is both widely used and gpl
asciilifeform: (one of the conditions for the ancient usg mandate establishing ada 'foundation' is that the product must be gpl'ed)
decimation: I guess the difference is the 'usg certificate'
asciilifeform: the certificate has nothing to do with ada per se

asciilifeform: there are proprietary ada systems, yes. i have not been able to learn who uses them, and for what.
asciilifeform: but this being one of the only two programming languages in existence which are -standardized in their entirety-, in principle there is no reason - aside from retardation - to use a proprietary ada
asciilifeform: - actually - i can think of one
asciilifeform: gnat/gcc lacks support for some of the more exotic chips used

asciilifeform: at any rate, all of the ada-related material is thoroughly public
asciilifeform: and guess which are the only two programming languages to have 'rationale manuals' for every aspect of the language ?
asciilifeform: i can sorta see why naggum went in for ada
decimation: "23-Jan-2015 MILITARY STANDARD Sixteen-Bit Computer Instruction Set ArchitectureMIL-STD-1750A, dated 12-Apr-2010, remains inactive for newdesign; however, the document is valid for use."
asciilifeform: it's a kind of 'polar opposite' of common lisp..
