When another weekend rolled around
mircea_popescu: there was no longer an ability to marshal large ghetto forces, absent their high school breeding grounds. The media coverage was a complete lie and a hoax, the rioters have been excused, and the race-purging strike teams in outlying areas ignored or covered up. During the school year attend such events in Baltimore only on the weekend. If they have a Friday night event, do not go. As this event is in August, I predict

asciilifeform: 1) 500 blocks are pulled from sync node on cold boot
asciilifeform: 2) after this, when bastard block comes in, the thing walks the orphanage and finds the start of the chain, and asks for its antecedents.
asciilifeform: we don't have an orphanage any more
asciilifeform: so our antecedent is always the most recent bastard.
asciilifeform: if you can think of an algo which makes more sense than this, please write in
asciilifeform: the current item was the simplest/most-kalashnikov
davout: not sure i get "the thing walks the orphanage and finds the start of the chain"

davout: danielpbarron: looking at your pogo docs, not sure how to perform step 4.1 u-boot compilation
danielpbarron: you and me both :p
davout: hehe
davout: i've built the new kernel according to asciilifeform's instructions, including the v2 patches
mod6: <+asciilifeform> [BTC-dev] Full Orphanage Thermonuke Massif Output (Theoretically, covers entire address space of process) << great work, asciilifeform. thanks for putting that together :]
davout: from what i understand i need to replace u-boot on the pogo so that it'll load this new kernel over the network by using tftp
davout: perplexed at the u-boot step, how do i actually get to asciilifeform's "(you -did- configure the u-boot to tftp by default, aha?)" ?
danielpbarron: it comes with its own uBoot, which can be configured to load a kernel over the network
mod6: I can't really check from here, but later tonight will give some updates as to how my v0.5.3.1+OrphanageBurner build is running. last I saw, it was using quite a bit of available ram. was >200`000 blocks, and still running, but that was lastnight.
mod6: (and yeah, that's on a deb6 - x86_64 env)
danielpbarron: but it does not come with the tool needed to do this, which is fw_printenv
davout: danielpbarron: oic
davout: so i found this -> http://blog.qnology.com/2014/07/hacking-pogoplug-v4-series-4-and-mobile.html
assbot: Qui's techNOLOGY Blog: Hacking the Pogoplug v4 (Series 4 and Mobile) with Linux (Debian or Arch) ... ( http://bit.ly/1Alx70K )
davout: which is aimed at booting debian/alarm from an sdcard
mod6: oh cool, i guess my pogo will be delivered tomorrow
davout: i assume i can use the steps relevant to u-boot from there to get the correct version on the pogo and resume your instructions when that's done
davout: danielpbarron: but i'm slightly confused at this whole thing, say i manage to flash the new uboot on the pogo, and set the correct variables with the new fw_printenv command that comes with the improved u-boot, and that with the correct settings the pogo will look for a kernel on the network at boot time, what's netcat for?
davout: aah, reading the instructions once again, it starts to make sense
scoopbot_revived: News! A not-so-new era begins in Alberta politics. URL: http://www.contravex.com/2015/05/06/a-not-so-new-era-begins-in-alberta-politics/
danielpbarron: yeah netcat is not needed necessarily
danielpbarron: i have a more condensed guide on the b-a wiki
danielpbarron: http://wiki.bitcoin-assets.com/pogo
assbot: pogo [bitcoin assets wiki] ... ( http://bit.ly/1P0CnDy )
davout: danielpbarron: so looks like i managed to get the kernel loaded and starting
danielpbarron: you used the qnology guide to get the uBoot thing working?
davout: danielpbarron: looks like it hangs at "Starting kernel ...", is any output expected afterwards ?
davout: http://dpaste.com/1D0E0EX.txt
assbot: ... ( http://bit.ly/1P0CAqg )
davout: yes, i got the u-boot working, see the output i get in netcat ^
danielpbarron: netcat stops there, you shouldn't see anything else
davout: ok good
davout: the pogo seems to have a half green half red light
danielpbarron: if you used ascii's thing, then it should have telnet built in
davout: ah i see, i tried SSH'ing into it to no avail
davout: yea, i used ascii's instructions and patches
danielpbarron: he decided that since the thing has no RNG, ssh is a waste
davout: aha, i'm the new pogo
davout: which makes sense
davout: ok that's really cool
davout: so now i guess i just need to build the bitcoind release and put it on the pogo
danielpbarron: you should be able to telnet in as root, password is probably also root or something
davout: telnet without a username got me in as root
danielpbarron: oh i think there is no password actuallly
danielpbarron: yeah, it's as insecure as could be, because telnet shouldn't be enabled on the final product anyway
davout: so now do i compile bitcoind right there? or should i somehow compile it on my local machine?
danielpbarron: local machine for sure
danielpbarron: it'll take forever on the pogo i think
assbot: [MPEX] [FT] [X.EUR] 490 @ 0.0047648 = 2.3348 BTC [+] {3}
davout: ok, where would i find directions to compile it properly for the pogo?
danielpbarron: i was able to compile bitcoind for a pogo from my gentoo laptop using crossdev
davout: did you document it?
danielpbarron: but that was a some time ago
danielpbarron: that one is running on ArchLinux
danielpbarron: i don't have good documentation for that, no
davout: and since you mention the final product, what would the target procedure look like to configure a new pogo?
danielpbarron: i would guess something like flashing the memory with a ramdisk image that has all the kernel userland and bitcoind already in there
danielpbarron: pre-configured to look for a sata drive to format and mount as the datadir for bitcoind
davout: but from my understanding a stock pogo won't let you simply boot from an arbitrary usb stick
danielpbarron: it'll boot from the eeprom
danielpbarron: (it can also boot from sata drive)
davout: like out of the box?
danielpbarron: and you can boot from usb, it just has to be the USB2 port on the top of the unit
danielpbarron: i'm not sure if it can boot from sata out of the box; it's uBoot should be able to do it, but i don't know if it would need to be reconfigured
davout: ah, so ultimately the procedure would be "acquire pogo, burn image on USB stick, insert SATA drive, insert flashed USB stick, power unit on" right?
danielpbarron: not even
danielpbarron: although that might also be handy for making lots in one pass
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 392600 @ 0.00021549 = 84.6014 BTC [-] {3}
danielpbarron: but you should be able to ssh into a new unit, download the image and flash it
davout: i guess it really depends on whether we want to ship pre-configured units, or make an easy procedure available
danielpbarron: defo the latter
danielpbarron: maybe also the former
davout: i see
danielpbarron: the abiltity to audit the thing is one of the most important features
davout: ok, i'm off for now, i'll get on cross-compiling bitcoind and getting it running on the pogo later
davout: agreed

mircea_popescu: the way bmezine worked is that a large group of brown shit (random idiots mostly looking into an intersting path to killing themselves, a service boxing did for most of the 1900s, up to about the 90s) got some yellow shit interspersed. these are people who they themselves saw a little further than most.
nubbins`: THEN they let you block people who used trackers on their own pages, etc etc

nubbins`: ^ publicly viewable, no acct reqd
mircea_popescu: but anyway, moral being : forget about putting your time and effort into "compliance". for one thing it's stupid. for the other thing, who the fuck are they ?! and finally it's deliberately made to not be a satisfiable requirement. just there to soak up your time and resources.
mircea_popescu: outright ignore "compliance", spend the time and resources on the harem instead.
mircea_popescu: winning strat.
mircea_popescu: (and no, i am not aware you can be a successful king without a harem. your gender is not particularly relevant, your sexual preferences are not particularly relevant either. but you will have a lot of intimate relationships with a lot of other people, who are comitted to you personally.)
nubbins`: "One of the things I discovered is that if someone else has more money than you and are willing to spend it on lawyers, "right and wrong" are not very important!"
mircea_popescu: doh.
nubbins`: ah, here we go.
mircea_popescu: fetlife bitterly discovered same recently. was kinda fun to watch.
ben_vulpes: guns by any other name kill as well.
nubbins`: "BME was hugely profitable. That said, because I trusted others to manage my finances, I was under the impression that BME was barely breaking even though it really was a license to print money. I was much more interested in BME on a creative level than a business level."
nubbins`: that's the elevator version right there
mircea_popescu: yeah, the funny thing about the human condition, in its fractally-deliberate misdesign, is that the slaves are altogether more likely to be creative than the masters.
ben_vulpes: i wonder to what degree that describes burning man's finances.
ben_vulpes: harem and slave are similar concepts in this model of "leadership"?
mircea_popescu: which is a fine entry point for explaining to the naive why exactly a properly explicit master-slave relationship is the best intimate arrangement available.
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes similar but not identical, and the difference is way out of scope here.
ben_vulpes: (harem member i suppose that i mean)
mircea_popescu: (as the above explanation, consider moldbug's very valid discussion of the guy with the ring that could kill. he who is secure in his authority makes excellent leadership. he who is not - horribru)

mircea_popescu: and to do a meta point here, to go with the meta point above : this entire discussion is a fine point to explain to the managerially challenged why you can't "control the evaporation". where intelligent people lay, nubbins' lateral discussion of "bullshot nobody cares about" sparked stuff people do seem to care about.
mircea_popescu: lotta win in laterality.
nubbins`: "All I need is <username of my dog>, <my motorcycle>, and maybe a little adventure now and then."
nubbins`: suspiciously absent from list of things she needs: her daughter o.O
mircea_popescu: nubbins` is her nose big enough to qualify as a rachel ?
nubbins`: no
mircea_popescu: scam.
mircea_popescu: ascii_field yeah him. and incidentally, this is the secular driver of the collapse in quality of life and everything else seen since the 1700s (it is a horrid collapse once you do inflation-adjustments) : back then leadership was secure, and therefore either good or motivated to improve, ever so marginally.
mircea_popescu: today most models have insecure leadership, and so "corruption", which is NEVER a problem, ends up misrepresented as one.
ascii_field: mircea_popescu: this was 98% of mr mold's theme
mircea_popescu: it's valid.
ascii_field: aha.
mircea_popescu: for that matter, the problem with yarvin was not the broad strokes, but all the empty mcdonalds wrappers he glued to them everywhere.
ascii_field: it is obvious as daylight, to anyone who gives a damn
ascii_field: what he found in the junkyard where he grew up - he glued, yes.
mircea_popescu: i guess it's possible he's just a bodysnatcher victim, rather than outright ill intended.
mircea_popescu: but this distinction without a difference /me can scarcely be interested in.
mircea_popescu: maybe if he had nice tits and i was fucking her. maybe.
ascii_field: famine victim.
ben_vulpes: sounds familiar
mircea_popescu: ascii_field let's play a game. i quote and you guess.
ascii_field: shoot
mircea_popescu: Yes, that's very pretty. I heard a story once. In fact, I've heard a lot of stories in my time. They went along with the sound
mircea_popescu: of a tinny piano playing in the parlor downstairs."Mister, I met a man once when I was a kid," they'd always begin.
ascii_field: twain ?
mircea_popescu: hehe nope.
ascii_field: who then
mircea_popescu: a little known jew named epstein
mircea_popescu: the wachowski brothers of the 40s, julius and phillip
mircea_popescu: (it's from casablanca, bogart says it to the stupid priss w/e her name is)
ascii_field: hm how's this plug in
mircea_popescu: she was a "famine victim" too.
ascii_field: famine victims do the stupidest imaginable shit, like eating dirt and sand, drinking sea water
ascii_field: sometimes - nutritious insects in the dirt
mircea_popescu: not all of them.
ascii_field: <mircea_popescu> not all of them << the remaining - starve quietly, with honour ?
mircea_popescu: the remaining never gave a shit in the first place.
ascii_field: wai wat
mircea_popescu: there's a reason nubbins` finds the mentally insane so fascinating. that reason is that he has the deep intuition that the only people worth the mention are the ones that don't actually care.
ascii_field: paging herr limonov!
ascii_field: 'nuts are the only sane folks' - oldest meme in the book - not wrong, really, either
mircea_popescu: myeah.
mircea_popescu: ascii_field anyway, if it's not obvious, the tinny piano in the parlor downstairs explicitly says the woman's a whore.
ascii_field: well yes
mircea_popescu: she never actually confronts this, which is why To Have and Have Not is a much better movie than casablanca.
mircea_popescu: it's also why it had to be made (it's quite obviously a remake of casablanca, without the "girl next door" slime befouling it). that point has to be addressed.
nubbins`: so i have five bottles of neutral-pH bookbinding glue
mircea_popescu: party ?

nubbins`: haw
pete_dushenski: also, article updated with... yet another personal connection to ndp.
pete_dushenski: i wouldn't say i'm ashamed, but my goodness does socialism run deep in my veins.
mircea_popescu: kinda what being a jew is.
pete_dushenski: the lulz then ? this is on the ukrainian orthodox side.
pete_dushenski: i'm getting hit both ways.
pete_dushenski: no way out !
mircea_popescu: basically, jews came up with the first social security system. this, cca 2000 ad.
mircea_popescu: bc*
mircea_popescu: christians then imported it
pete_dushenski: sure, taking the sabbath
mircea_popescu: nah, not just that. having kids eat at different houses each day so they could stay in school ?
mircea_popescu: have debts periodically reset ?
mircea_popescu: etc.
pete_dushenski: ah yes, jubilee
mircea_popescu: (note incidentally that the ancient superset of family life - each kid eats with his mother - is harem life - each kid eats with all the mothers)
pete_dushenski: what's the story on the kids eating around ? first i've heard of it.
mircea_popescu: this is how the jews thought best to prepare elites.
mircea_popescu: pete_dushenski what do you think yeshiva was originally ?
mircea_popescu: this arrangement.
pete_dushenski: so seven different households, weekly rotation ?
mircea_popescu: more like 30 or w/e
mircea_popescu: that's how student = vagabond even became a hting.
pete_dushenski: aha. and this yeshivic arrangement is part of social security as well ?
mircea_popescu: well isn't it ?
mircea_popescu: "govt" gives you a meal ticket.
mircea_popescu: the boys aren't expected to SEDUCE those married women and OVERPOWER their husbands, are they ?
pete_dushenski: aha or "community" feeds
pete_dushenski: surely not.
pete_dushenski: but if they do, a man is he !
mircea_popescu: hardly. more like an inhuman force of nature that has the potential to be massively disruptive and interfacing him to the village may well cost more than it's worth.
pete_dushenski: so a rotating set of meals as a test, a benchmark, to ensure cohesion and the integrity of the social fabric.
mircea_popescu: no, just, to make taxation bearable and spending of public funds effectual.
pete_dushenski: and if boy is not worth it ? well what of him ?
mircea_popescu: this is how boy becomes the castrated sort of cvasi-intellectual jewish world always produced. the women love the style because it flatters their inferiority complex, the men tolerate it because they don't like fighting (or think they don't, because they grew up the same way)
pete_dushenski: and what of the boys who don't stay or won't be castrated ? the ones who seduce and overpower ?
mircea_popescu: like... who ?
mircea_popescu: im sure they have excellent personal histories. but, much like in the case of the messiah you hadn't heard of, the "culture" or w/e it is fails to meaningfully represent them.
mircea_popescu: (this is ITS failure, try it as it might to misrepresent it as theirs)
pete_dushenski: so spinoza, einstein, maimonides, freud, bohr aren't meaningfully represented ?

pete_dushenski: federal is still stepped, alberta WAS the only province with flat income tax.
