ben_vulpes: << working on obedience at distance in casa vulpes esta noche
assbot: Video upload (HNrC) - vidme ... ( )
decimation: mircea_popescu: re: terrorist < eh, I don't see it. what does it benefit the terrorist to even bother?
decimation: other than being a megalomaniac and/or sick fuck
decimation: on another note, another lesson to learn from the french revolution: the problem with being a lefty populist is that there's always someone else who is a little more left and a little more populist
decimation: because unlike reactionaries, nobody on the left can actually claim to legitimately vest sovereignty in a particular person - all leftist government are of a temporary and emergency nature
cazalla: not that i'd buy one, but at least these new mac laptops have 16:10 display.. with all the 16:9's doing away with master race 16:10's, it must be coming back into fashion
asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: that beast yours ?
asciilifeform: longdog is long
decimation: asciilifeform: re: old macbooks < apparently coreboot supports the old 1,1 and 2,1 macbooks
asciilifeform: decimation: iirc 'efi' (standard apple/sun/sgi bootloader) a) has published source b) doesn't do particularly much in the first place
decimation: yeah, good point.
decimation: the main issue are all the peripherals. they sort of work.
decimation: but probably not suspend-to-ram
asciilifeform has had more than his fill of 'sort of work
decimation: more interesting are all of the server motherboards, but it seems like support is limited to old opterons
asciilifeform: pretty much whole amd product line works
ben_vulpes: why is suspend to ram such a big deal?
asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: for me in particular? or asking why difficult to implement correctly
ben_vulpes: for you in particular.
asciilifeform: because i often use machine for a minute or two at a time
asciilifeform: and then put back on shelf or in bag
asciilifeform: and have no desire to boot
asciilifeform: or, conversely, to lose state when closed down
asciilifeform does not carry out crypto or secret work of whatever kind on such machines
ben_vulpes: << my beast, fairly long. yellow object is nine inches.
ben_vulpes: also tonight the beast acquired a new trick: "hold the fuck still while i put things on you"
cazalla: i love dogs but a dog in the house.. i dunno mang
asciilifeform: ben_vulpes got the dog properly level ?
cazalla: my staffy lived for 16 years and she was only permitted into the laundry
asciilifeform: leg shape in toilet on upper right hand corner of photo is ben_vulpes ?
asciilifeform: or other pet
cazalla: asciilifeform, towel or gown is my bed

mircea_popescu: <decimation> other than being a megalomaniac and/or sick fuck << kinda the definition.
asciilifeform: processing of homo redditicus by countereconomic 'hobbyist' sick fuck is only one possibility

mircea_popescu: i guess the answer im looking for is no.
ben_vulpes: << this is why i don't quite buy the "trillion dollar project" argument.
assbot: Logged on 10-03-2015 00:04:10; mircea_popescu: i can accept that SOME PEOPLE actually need their monitor to graphics. so make a gamestation. otherwise, we're fucking literate, we're not women, nothing beats text. ever.
mircea_popescu: which argument is that ?
ben_vulpes: redoing modern compute is impossible without your own icbm and maintenance staff for.
ben_vulpes: icmbs*
ben_vulpes: and silos and etc etc
mircea_popescu: ah. alf just likes hyperbolae
ben_vulpes: i know this, but for the loggerheads.
mircea_popescu: a pretty good place to deploy them, too.
ben_vulpes: the argument deserves surfacing.
mircea_popescu: no rush anyway.
ben_vulpes: it's a trillion dollar project if you swallow the whole spitoon of what constitutes modern computing.
ben_vulpes: x11, the whole nine.
mircea_popescu: the world was apparently content to wait fifty fucking years for us to come along
mircea_popescu: it can wait while i finish my cake slice too.
mircea_popescu: it's so apt that, you know that ilf of ilf & petrov fame also was an initialism ?
mircea_popescu: for that matter, it is unclear to me that the notion of "fonts" adds any value whatsoever and is anything other than shitgnomism, 80s flavour.
mircea_popescu: not to mention i still distinctly recall my cat-ish mistrust as an 8 yo boy confronted with "special symbols". why exactly something like $ is even needed, or useful, is imo still open to debate.
mircea_popescu: 27 fucking letters and be happy if you get case next version.

cazalla: I’m actually, right now, working on just getting consensus among the five, what I call, core developers — the five developers who have push access to the git code. I think I’m getting close to convincing them that we have a plan that will work. I’m probably going to have to write some more code . . . I think we have a year to eighteen months. I would love the next release of bitcoin — the next major release, which will be sometime
cazalla: in the June timeframe — to have a scheduled hardfork to increase the block size in it. I probably won’t get there. It’ll probably be in the release after that, but we’ll see.

jurov: << implies that text is by far fastest/most reliable channel to push bits into the brain
assbot: Logged on 10-03-2015 00:04:10; mircea_popescu: i can accept that SOME PEOPLE actually need their monitor to graphics. so make a gamestation. otherwise, we're fucking literate, we're not women, nothing beats text. ever.
mircea_popescu: it does.
jurov: i concede all the other attempts were feeble, but it may not be the ultimate case
mircea_popescu: if it weren't, we wouldn't CODE IN FUCKING TEXT
mircea_popescu: the day someone makes derp++ and starts iterating splines in a cube conditional, we can revisit this.
mircea_popescu: that said, feel free to draw out your love and other emotions, preferably directly on the object, with sticky matter.
jurov: that's not what i'm saying
jurov: i'm saying it looks like local optimum and when retina is fully reverse-engineered, better methods may be found
jurov: but everyone is so used to text, it will be hard
jurov: *local maximum
mircea_popescu: that somehow didn't emerge. so wait, reverse engineer the retina ? in what sense ? it's pretty well described as is
jurov: even if, the knowledge is not yet being used in practice to achieve better bitrates
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [AM1] 105 @ 0.01643809 = 1.726 BTC [+] {5}
mircea_popescu: i think the bitrate approach misses the fundamental point here. you'll never beat the bitrate of "put out random pixels" with any bitmap approach.
mircea_popescu: this is where anything but text fails : no abstractive power.
mircea_popescu: a curve does not meaningfully stand for a set of curves like a word stands for a set of words.
jurov: there was the cad example, for curves that meaningfully stand for something
mircea_popescu: only because there's a textual context to generously support it.
mircea_popescu: you can't make a cad based kernel.
mircea_popescu: and if you can't do that, which is the absolute bare minimum of communication, you can't do anything meaningful.,
jurov: you don't tell me what i can do and don't. i already combine charts and text for production code
jurov: but i consider things like drakon editor a feeble attempt led by gut feeling of russina mathematicians
jurov: *russian
mircea_popescu: well actually, yeah, this is what i do :) my fucking thesis was on the limits of knowledge.
jurov: and woinder if they have known what we know of retina, how would it end up
mircea_popescu: an' i'm tellin' you, "visual" is not a complete language.
mircea_popescu: obviously it's an adjunct. everything can be an adjunct to speech.
dignork: jurov: afaik it was russian project where they tried to build complex software, like space c&c.
mircea_popescu: (In linguistics, an adjunct is an optional, or structurally dispensable, part of a sentence, clause, or phrase that, if removed or discarded, will not otherwise affect the remainder of the sentence.)
jurov: lol. you know deafies are considering whole speech as "dispensable"
jurov: signs are teh best!!1
mircea_popescu: signs are a reimplementation of speech.
mircea_popescu: this is like saying "my ms dos fixedsys display is graphical"
jurov: not for prelingval deaf, the "grammar" is purely visual
mircea_popescu: (i didn't mean speech as in the sound thereof)
jurov: and they hate the 1:1 attempts to translat speech into signs
mircea_popescu: eh, while i can appreciate the theoretical beauty of this "fuck you, i'm a dragon" approach, i do not credit it any. in fact, i think it only exists because the context is of the "fuck you, dragons" nature.
mircea_popescu: and i think the sort of idiots running around pretending "everything;'s something!11" are doing deaf people a major disfavor.
jurov: as compared to pretending "text is everything and forever will be"?
jurov: i have videos and podcasts as anyone, but this?
jurov: *hate
mircea_popescu: let's move it in a different field. you acquainted with the happenstance that iconoclastic civilisations prospered intellectually whereas iconocladic civilisations failed ?
jurov: yes
mircea_popescu: so do you explain it ?
kakobrekla: just lucky i guess.
jurov: egypt prospered thousands of yeats with *very* augmented text
jurov: *years
mircea_popescu: to be fair, i loved the "visual equalizer" in whatever program first played mp3s on 386s, single session. and obviously computers are for pronz.
jurov: the original discussion was that having X*Y fixed terminal is sufficient for every intellectual endeavor
jurov: that was what prompted me
mircea_popescu: more like, "x*y field terminal is great for cutting out timewasters"
jurov: i see
mircea_popescu: it forces people to think, and it simplifies the task of rooting out thoise who haven't. exactly the opposite service of a powerpoint presentation.
mircea_popescu: but that said, computers are still for pronz.
assbot: Sorting algorithms/Quicksort - Rosetta Code ... ( )
mircea_popescu: adlai you're not seriously proposing innovative pagination turns text into "graphical" do you ?
adlai proposes nothing, just dumps links in the logs
mircea_popescu: particularly bad example too, quicksort is like seven lines forty words.
adlai: i've not yet encountered something which worked better for me than text, but i'm not sold on it being the global maximum, short of sticking wires in the brain
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: it forces people to think, and it simplifies the task of rooting out thoise who haven't << why not goose quill pen, then
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform that's a simple restriction on volume.
asciilifeform: i understand the appeal of 'this is the fucking army, you will paint the snow white until your fucking beg'
asciilifeform: but pray tell what were the 'timewasters' on a 'symbolics' box ?
mircea_popescu: well, more like, "if you can't say it in words you've not understood it"
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i will use your own body to defeat you! how long did you spent with the box, and how much did you make in that time ?
asciilifeform: or for that matter mathematical symbols. modern mathematics -began- when they switched from naked words to the occasional piece of graphical 'garbage'
adlai: how about "if you can't present it in an original fashion, you've not understood it"
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: no dice. spent as little time as did with box because a good chunk of it is replicated in my modern 'emacs' - with which i've made just about everything in my adult life
mircea_popescu: no it didn't. modern mathematics began once they gave up the "mysticism" and "unexpressible" and "obvious" visual/intuitive nonsense and started putting everything in words.
adlai: granted, most presentations will be words
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform well then that's all i got, because i've never spent considerable enough time with one to say anything cogent.
adlai: !s SymbolicsTalk28June2012.m4v
assbot: 0 results for 'SymbolicsTalk28June2012.m4v' :
asciilifeform: now all of this probably plays into mircea_popescu's thesis, because it turns out that the main use of graphical bitmaps in a 'symbolics' box or in my emacs is to better shovel text around
asciilifeform: adlai: it used to be a link to my site
asciilifeform: adlai: but the original google video was censored
asciilifeform: so we cached it.
mircea_popescu: wait, we do that ?!
assbot: Loper OS » Kalman Reti, the Last Symbolics Developer, Speaks of Lisp Machines. ... ( )
asciilifeform: kakobrekla offered that time
asciilifeform: because thing wasn't just some idiot talking, but a film of the machine in use
asciilifeform: yet another example of an item for which you absolutely need a moving picture
mircea_popescu: is it computer pronz ?
asciilifeform: sumthinglikethat
adlai: eh, the information in a video can be reliably conveyed through a transcript
asciilifeform: adlai: nope.
asciilifeform: not that one.

asciilifeform: adlai: because started falling into c shitpit
adlai: why not write it in lisp?
asciilifeform: adlai: because c os
asciilifeform: adlai: if i could choose just one small idea from my entire set of writings to survive, it would be that 'abstractions push up'
asciilifeform: as well as down
asciilifeform: the basic idea was known to the ancients as 'spoonfull of shit in a barrel of honey'
asciilifeform: iirc mircea_popescu had an article re: same.
adlai: in this case, the problem is that limitations push upwards
mircea_popescu: well... chicks not having two cunts certainly has made it so we don't have two penises, amirite ?
asciilifeform: adlai: if you're curious, i quit the emulator when i realized that even the text output absolutely trivial on a dataflow machine cannot be rendered in real time on a von neumann box (simply attach dependency graph to each rectangle of video buffer ram)
asciilifeform: to explain this in usable detail would take a while
asciilifeform: but perhaps the basic idea is clear
adlai: the basic idea is an obvious limitation of von neumann
asciilifeform: and one that breaks, in practice, the turing thesis
asciilifeform: some things -can't- be emulated usably
asciilifeform: (mathematically - in 'batch mode' - yes. usably in real time - no)
asciilifeform: now wondering if mircea_popescu will suggest bringing back batch processing
asciilifeform: because that was surely the ultimate 'derp zapper'
asciilifeform: batch programmers typically never even saw the machine...
mircea_popescu: well actually, under the "least bugs in code" criteria, the best programming was done 1100ad - 1700ad.
mircea_popescu: why stop at batch mode :D
asciilifeform: there we go.
asciilifeform: but going back to mathematical notation for a spell - let's write, e.g., a gnarly triple integral, in plain humanlang.
asciilifeform: what a bitch it'd be
asciilifeform: good abstractions are not only orthogonal and well-chosen, but -compact-
asciilifeform: brainspacewise
mircea_popescu: trivial to write integrals in plain language, what.
mircea_popescu: "integral"
asciilifeform: i said triple
asciilifeform: with varying params
mircea_popescu: i still dunno why you think the current notation is somehow nonverbal.
asciilifeform: it isn't nonverbal in the sense of what geometers liked to do
asciilifeform: but used 'weird symbols' not found on my keyboard, was the point
mircea_popescu: well that's your point, but notrly what was discussed. a simple mapping from that to "integral" and problem solved.
mircea_popescu: a symbol is a symbol.
asciilifeform: << pulled out of the aether arbitrarily for folks who had too many years from school
asciilifeform: to illustrate what is being spoken of
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 27660 @ 0.00032652 = 9.0315 BTC [+] {2}
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: simple mapping to the word brutally linearizes the expression
asciilifeform: forces you to demunge it in your head

mircea_popescu: "triple integral for x = 4y**2 + 4z**2 and x=4"
asciilifeform: and what of the bounds ?
asciilifeform: glommed on separately somewhere ?
mircea_popescu: implicit neh ?
mircea_popescu: but it is!
asciilifeform: in this problem!
mircea_popescu: WHICH IS MY POINT :D
asciilifeform: whatddoihavetodo, scan a schoolbook! lol
mircea_popescu: exactly! see ?
asciilifeform: let's suppose they weren't implicit.
asciilifeform: easily most of real life
mircea_popescu: the very general case where it's easier to show me than to tell me reduces to pr0n.
mircea_popescu: (/me could have been deformed by years of insisting pets verbalize as part of their education)
asciilifeform: or simply to the fact that straight line of alphabet yes, can unambiguously describe everything. but it takes titanic space for a large class of concepts
asciilifeform: human languages as a class aren't even automatically unambiguous structurewise, and to hammer them into this shape results in the kind of verbiage that led people to invent 'squigglies' in the first place.
mircea_popescu: the more important point here was if you're somehow going to leverage the visual processor to think with, rather than whether it sometimes saves representative space for the linguistic processor to conveniently symbolize.
mircea_popescu: natural language "ambiguity" is a machine problem, not a human problem.
asciilifeform: when you teach the pets to reassemble kalash, will it be visually (tactile!) or verbally ?
jurov: there are cases linguistic processor may require storage of more than 7 items
adlai sees a surprising parallel between processing a long string of characters and the von neumann approach to executing a linear sequence instructions referring an array of memory...
jurov: which it the core of the problem
mircea_popescu: adlai not coincidental either.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform pronz!
mircea_popescu: there's no understanding involved in mashing the bits together. i also teach cooking by example only.
mircea_popescu: jurov 7 bits should be enough for everyone!
asciilifeform: i think he was speaking of the 7 levels of stack thing
jurov: yes.
asciilifeform: i've seen it trotted out as an argument that it is impossible to program in common lisp
jurov: and mnemonics is all about replacing the stuff eith rememberable *visual* interpretation
asciilifeform: because one encounters sometimes more than 7 levels of nesting
asciilifeform: which was a mega-l0l
jurov: i'm trying to get at that... you have to convert text into some internal representation in order to store more thasn 7 items
adlai: 7 is some average (mode?) though, rather than a neurological law.
jurov: so why it not possivble to feed these more directly to the brain?
asciilifeform: i promised yesterday to say why i quit the ibm green phosphour terminal; this was why
mircea_popescu: jurov you know this is nonsense. i store thousands of items.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: likely thinking of a different 'store'
jurov: but not as text!
jurov: i have seen you to mangle several names for example
asciilifeform: the original '7' thing was re: short-term memory and juggling arbitrary symbols as strings
mircea_popescu: jurov nothing is error free, not even non-ecc memory.
mircea_popescu: nevertheless, my articles are generally preformed and i just tyoe them out.
adlai: like wagner
mircea_popescu: most of the "mind science" is pure gunk, ftr.
mircea_popescu: and it doesn't start with pharma, freud was closer to a fraud than anything. and all the way back.
jurov: ^ yes, that i meant by "feeble attempts" to present nontext information
asciilifeform: 'What’s the real difference between having a type signature in your short-term memory or prominently displayed in your second monitor? What’s the real difference between writing a comment in your mind or touch-typing it as fast as you create it? Just some speed. Just some time. And the more visible that type signature is, the faster you can type out that comment, the larger your ‘memory’ gets. And the larger your memor
asciilifeform: y is, the more intelligent/productive you can be.'
asciilifeform: ^ will sign under every word of that
mircea_popescu: minus the last sentence.
mircea_popescu: if memory made intelligence, computers'd be pretty smart.
asciilifeform: it's only true in the opposite
asciilifeform: artificially clamping your memory -> stupider
asciilifeform: like strapping weights to a runner
asciilifeform: removing bricks from on top another brick, will not make the latter a faster runner...
mircea_popescu: ok that's maybe your best analogy to date.

asciilifeform: where are the moles?
asciilifeform: adlai: a good chunk of the total world of engineering fits in this category
asciilifeform: know the saying 'picture is worth 1000 words' ? it isn't a joke
asciilifeform: and 1000 is, often, optimistic
adlai: eh, you can describe this picture in less than 1000
mircea_popescu: the only reason that picture is even meaningful to you is because you long ago digested its text
adlai: on the contrary
mircea_popescu: so now it's symbolized and you look at it and you figure hey, it's so much better than text
adlai: the only text which i needed was the filename
mircea_popescu: not unlike ruby programmer imagining "o wow, so much better than asm".
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: the reasons whereby ruby sucks have nothing to do with the representation
adlai would've had to use trial-and-error to figure out which gate was represented, if the filename hadn't specified it
mircea_popescu: otherwise, it translates to text quite perfectly well, and plainly : "if and only if". but this is familiar to people trained in humanities more than in cs i guess.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: the c-gate !?!
asciilifeform suggests actually understanding what adlai linked to
mircea_popescu looks at gate again
asciilifeform: i regard c-gate as among the greatest inventions in 20th c. electronics
asciilifeform: (even though it is used virtually nowhere...)
adlai is trying to actually understand what loper-os links to...
mircea_popescu: "if not both"
asciilifeform: it lets you have asynchronous circuits without metastability problems
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: the function of the 'extra' gates does not become clear unless you understand why extant cpus (which do not use muller's c-gate) need 'clocks' at all
asciilifeform: they have to wait for inputs to 'settle'
asciilifeform: because an ordinary logic gate can enter a 'metastable' wedge-state if it is given a 'pathological' input transition (i.e. you try to use the output before the inputs are stable)
mircea_popescu has been spending some time looking at this circuitry, understands why it backfeeds now.

asciilifeform: but at any rate they do not end up wedged in practice (folks with $maxint have built otherwise conventional cpu without clock using c-gate, they don't wedge)

asciilifeform: only retracted when found a new use for the armed thugs
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Still a lot of blame for this goes to the fuckers who made AR-style pistols. Some feasibe civilian arms in the US are simply not made due to the legal/regulatory cascade which would follow. (ex. 'smart' guns)
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: iirc 'smart' in the sense of electrical detonation is explicitly forbidden
asciilifeform: on account of being a software patch away from full auto
asciilifeform: and this apparently is a great irritant to many marksmanship types who would much like electrical striker for a few percent decrease in mechanical jitter
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: That, but also 'smart' in the sense of authenticates user is defacto forbiden because of New Jersey law.
asciilifeform: the one that makes it mandatory if ever becomes available on the market ?
BingoBoingo: That one indeed
asciilifeform: still not sure how anything the size of a 1990s laptop can be called a 'pistol' with a straight face
asciilifeform: (in usa - anything that has only one hilt it being roughly 90 degree to the barrel, iirc, is legally 'pistol')
asciilifeform: ianal, but phun phact (tm):
asciilifeform: my understanding is that in usa, war machines that do not use pyrotechnic effects are not considered 'arms' and are not regulated at the national level
asciilifeform: e.g., arbalest, laser, electron beam weapon, etc.
asciilifeform: there are prohibitions on nukes (lol), poisons, and biowar - but that's, iirc, it.
asciilifeform: not that appropriate text couldn't be crapped into the penal code overnight if lizardhitler wished it, mind you
asciilifeform: but still entertaining, this omission.
BingoBoingo: There's state level prohibitions on top of things. In any number civilian taser/stun gun ownership is banned
asciilifeform: too 'humane' ?
jurov once had some stray thoughts about nanotubes-reinforced arbalest
trinque: asciilifeform: fascinating; all I can find re: lasers is labling requirements, etc
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: So it seems
asciilifeform: trinque: i have a 'class 4' laser right in this room
BingoBoingo: trinque: With sufficiently good batteries laser, magnetic rail, and other exotica might finally be banned.
asciilifeform: trinque: if it were 10,000 times larger, would still be 'class 4'.
BingoBoingo: At the moment I imagine there is no explict ban because USG wants to see what Boeing might buy for them off of a sufficiently advanced crackpot while it is still safe to assume such things are minimally portable.
trinque: BingoBoingo: eh probably just hasn't been a problem yet
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: usg-sponsored ($maxint) laser shenanigans traditionally involve chemical (that is, single-shot) machines
trinque: there's something there too about being able to outwit the regulators by virtue of them not having the imagination to conceive the necessary ban
asciilifeform: loaded like cannon
asciilifeform: trinque: it isn't like one could cut through a phalanx of usg stormtroopers and stay legally in the clear simply because the machine is not banned per se

BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Sure, but if sufficiently crazy/monied/intelligent crackpot produces solid state laser pistol with more than anti vehicle firings per charge that isn't too portable they would likely consider it a purchase
jurov: don't see how'd ban that

asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: good physical reasons why you would not want to be standing even behind such a thing, much less holding it, when fired

BingoBoingo: tooling in the big challenge it seems. requires a finer grit than bastard file offers
asciilifeform: fundamentally less precision metalwork needed here
asciilifeform: and with correctly-shaped projectile, smooth barrel would suffice
asciilifeform: potentially bullet itself could even be molded during the process of firing

asciilifeform: but again this is an ancient idea, not mine.
asciilifeform: it is interesting to remember that, at a certain velocity, it no longer really matters what a bullet is made of
asciilifeform: one could literally pierce a tank with a compressed turd
asciilifeform: -if- it could be made to travel fast enough.
asciilifeform: (think about micrometeorites, etc. and occasionally there is a cosmic ray travelling with the energy of a well-thrown baseball.)
