mircea_popescu: decimation the notion of carrying a portable cooker in your lap as a male should be pretty self-defeating
decimation: yes, but in exchange for poor posture, you gain 'can carry with luggage'
decimation: mircea_popescu: of course, don't rest it on your balls
mircea_popescu: because what, i'm the servant, and gotta make do with whatever ?
trinque: lol I try to keep the thing away from the balls
mircea_popescu: luggage is what i say it is
mircea_popescu: not what some clerk somewhere feels like lifting up
asciilifeform: e.g. trinitron
asciilifeform: (what do you do when clerk drops the trinitron ?)
mircea_popescu: but all this aside, not that more's needed : i never bought a premade computer in my lyf.
asciilifeform: charge the airline what it'd cost to blow a new one ?
mircea_popescu: i don't see why i would, either.
decimation: or you want information in your console while in transit
decimation: that's a better argument, but still lame given that most computing components use close designs; firmware
decimation: in fact, why not use a stallman 'libreboot' laptop?
mircea_popescu: by this reason, since all humans use closed designs, there's no benefit to accounting
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 116553 @ 0.00033976 = 39.6 BTC [+] {4}
mircea_popescu: the fact that i decide the matches is actually sufficient.
cazalla: interest part of an aussie article
cazalla: interesting even
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: y'know, at some point one of us needs to write the canonical 'specificity of diddling theorem' article.
mircea_popescu: i thought it was written
asciilifeform: not afaik
asciilifeform: iirc it exists as two sentences in an old mircea_popescu piece, and several dozen lines of log here
decimation: !s diddling
assbot: 70 results for 'diddling' :
mircea_popescu: well then go for it!
trinque: ^ I'd have expected far more
asciilifeform shiva hands full, will be writing broadcast -and- testing 32 rng units this weekend
trinque: any idea what a cardano might cost yet?
decimation: asciilifeform: I certainly understanding that having firmware in hand is not a full defense against diddling, but it is a strong start
asciilifeform: trinque: as a rough guide, expect it to cost around what your computer cost.
asciilifeform: (deliberately roomy set of bounds here, yes)
trinque: yep
decimation: raspberry pi or xeon server?
trinque: as the thing has no real alternative.. should command a price that reflects it
asciilifeform: trinque: understand that the first crate will be given to mircea_popescu, who has the unenviable chore of deciding precisely what to do with it
trinque: ah k
mircea_popescu: i've had worse.
asciilifeform tries to picture this 'worse'
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform what are we looking at here, product available by autumn ?
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: if our manufacturing phriends continue their good work, then very much so. incidentally i am in the process of investigating a possible alternative firm
asciilifeform: just in case.
asciilifeform really wishes presently that someone might fix the engine in therealbitcoin train, because presently it appears to only move when i push it
asciilifeform: for example, anyone try a uclibc build yet ?
asciilifeform: it is necessary for, e.g., pogo
asciilifeform: and overall retardation removal
mircea_popescu: lol conductor's fallacy eh.
mircea_popescu: jurov's trying to get you folks to stop ruining his mailer an mod6's been profiling to quote jus' off top of head
cazalla: how's this.. muh bank uses this select 3 icons from 9 icons as 2FA when logging in except they've recently changed all the icons except the 3 i use to login
trinque: probably did that for everbody, and made some distinction about "legacy" icons or some nonsense
trinque: re: bitcoind thread, I'm a hair above useless in C++, and also swapping heavily; however, maybe a page on the foundation site for available missions might help?
trinque: as somebody who might have an afternoon here or there, that plus the right sequence of patches to get to whatever the present state is would help me contribute time efficiently
mircea_popescu: trinque it's a republic not a corporation, ppls are supposed to pick up stuff they're good at and a good fit for
mircea_popescu: corporation is "gotta give everyone something to fill their company hours with"
trinque: yeah, that makes sense
asciilifeform fondling argentine 100 peso banknote in left hand, notices mention of 'social justice' on one side
trinque: probably no easy way to make the deturding casual side-work
asciilifeform: l0l what do you suppose it is for me
trinque: hey man, you lamented the lack of hands
trinque: I suspect we all have to eat
trinque: however, when the republic starts its first software company give me a holler :D
asciilifeform: eh you need money for that
trinque: actually, I guess the ministry of games takes that cake
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform el minimo respeto!
asciilifeform falls d0wn
mircea_popescu: trinque speaking of which, game got icons! for all the... 1k!!11 items involved.
mircea_popescu: and player models.
mircea_popescu: and so on.
trinque: nice
trinque: I downloaded it for to be checking out maybe this weekend
mircea_popescu: nah not released yet.
trinque: ah ok
mircea_popescu: that's an old version, 0.1 will be coming out!
trinque: found a link somewheres
trinque: sweet!
mircea_popescu: currently it's 0.0.4 iirc

liquidassets: Can't wait to lose the chaff when they go on their fork
danielpbarron: liquidassets, nice work
liquidassets: I'm mostly spectator for now
liquidassets: but it's interesting to watch
liquidassets: plenty of skin in the game..
liquidassets: you know what this world lacks? at least the world I've grown up in..?
liquidassets: discernment
liquidassets: no one knows who the fuck knows what they're actually talking about
liquidassets: no one knows how to shut their mouth, put their head down, and follow.
danielpbarron: speaking of which, get in the WoT
liquidassets: Or discern what is what or who is real
mircea_popescu: liquidassets who're you ?
liquidassets: mirchea_popescu: right here
liquidassets: ok..uncloaked this time again..unsure about my gpg skills
liquidassets: I always seem to lose the ability to log on..seems I have the best luck with the link to irc #b-a from the mainpage
liquidassets: but have had a terrible time using colloquy from my desktop
mircea_popescu: ;;google colloquy
gribble: Colloquy: IRC, SILC & ICB Client: <>; COLLOQUY | Loyalty Talks: <>; Colloquy | Definition of colloquy by Merriam-Webster: <>

decimation: pete_dushenski: are you still in der Schweiz?
liquidassets: fuck yeah Pete's here
liquidassets: pete_dushenski: I remember when I beat you 15-0: 15-0 weren't you at that Vancouver tournament?
danielpbarron: !up pete_dushenski
pete_dushenski: thx dan !
pete_dushenski: liquidassets eh ?
pete_dushenski: i'm guessing you mean badminton, but i don't recall having ever played in vancouver
liquidassets: Heh he, so you remember then
pete_dushenski: not that i was never bagelled.
liquidassets: okay maybe you got a few points
pete_dushenski: liquidassets would i remember your irl name ?
liquidassets: Looks like you do..?
pete_dushenski: lol nope.
liquidassets: oh nvrmind dan p..
pete_dushenski: i played tournies in montreal, winnipeg, saskatoon, calgary, edmonton... and golf tournaments in victoria... but i really dun think i played badminton in vancouver.
liquidassets: hmm maybe not, but you look pretty familiar, I'm almost certain we were at a few of the same tourneys
liquidassets: I've played in Montreal and Calgary if I remember correctly, I know for sure I was in Quebec
liquidassets: we're talking 96' maybe..
pete_dushenski: then you're mistaken, my man.
pete_dushenski: i was playing 5-10 years later.
liquidassets: did you start later?
pete_dushenski: decimation yup, au lausanne aujourd'hui
liquidassets: yeah I was done by 2000
decimation: sounds like a nice place
pete_dushenski: decimation finally get to lean on my french a bit !
pete_dushenski: liquidassets later than what ?
decimation: heh yeah isn't the north and central more german-speaking?
pete_dushenski: 2000 ? ya
pete_dushenski: decimation mhm
pete_dushenski: though in bern, everyone says "merci"
pete_dushenski: instead of danke
pete_dushenski: even though hardly anyone but bartenders speaks a lick of french
pete_dushenski: liquidassets did you ever win any tournaments ?
liquidassets: Any? sure
pete_dushenski: such as ?
liquidassets: I thought for sure we played doubles at some point. Haven't been into it for awhile
liquidassets: no big tournaments..actually I won one mixed doubles international tournament. My partner I was set up with was from Taipei
pete_dushenski: liquidassets well, the "p" surname doesn't really give me much to go on.
liquidassets: you were talking to the other dan...
pete_dushenski: when ? where ? be specific man. we don't have to dance around all day
mircea_popescu: laters mob
liquidassets: Manhattan Beach used to have an international badminton tournament every year
pete_dushenski: adios mp !
liquidassets: Canadians always made a showing, Peru, Argentina, Taipei, Jamaica..
liquidassets: ever go to it?
pete_dushenski: can't say i did.
liquidassets: How far did you take it? Were you on a national team or did you just fuck around in high school?
decimation: !up liquidassets
decimation: !up pete_dushenski
pete_dushenski: thx decimation
pete_dushenski: liquidassets played nationals 3 times, played club tournaments for 7-8 years, played college and won a few tournaments, won high school provincials

pete_dushenski: to miners." << suck it, gavin.
pete_dushenski: there's your consensus for you.
pete_dushenski: there's your "community"
pete_dushenski: that, a trillion sm accounts, and $5 buys you coffee
liquidassets: pete_dushenski what game did you like better singles or doubles?
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 50750 @ 0.00034188 = 17.3504 BTC [+] {2}
pete_dushenski: liquidassets i was always a better doubles player. i'm too big, too white, and my size 12s are too slow to compete in singles.
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 24150 @ 0.00034311 = 8.2861 BTC [+]
pete_dushenski: i was a strong defensive doubles player in my heyday.
pete_dushenski: today, i'm in better physical shape and can play singles and offensive doubles just as well.
liquidassets: Haha nice
pete_dushenski: though my joints don't have the endurance to play 10 games in a day anymore so i just play for fun once a week or so.
pete_dushenski: liquidassets were you more proficient at singles or doubles ?
pete_dushenski: "A group of bikers will hold a Muhammad cartoon-drawing contest outside a Phoenix-area mosque on Friday and they've been told to come armed in case of a "much-anticipated attack."" << inb4 the cops blame the mosque for starting the ensuing shoot-out

mircea_popescu: on the topic of "the broken husk of a world the imbeciles born before us left behind", and the sacrifices ~IT~ must make to redeem itself and become acceptable for us,
mircea_popescu: chick has an excellent description (in her area of interest) that is not merely of the area in question, but of the world in general
mircea_popescu: which is the common and imo sensible criterion to distinguish the artist from the common (wo)man : the world in a raindrop effect.

cazalla: that is probably the worst tumblr link i've yet to see in here
mircea_popescu: cazalla nice.
mircea_popescu: haha, why ?
mircea_popescu: "raffic which is claimed by Zhang to be around 2500 unique visitors per day." lulziest part.
cazalla: because not even samuel l jackson had that in mind when he said he eats everything
cazalla: fuck, got my zhous and zhangs mixed up
mircea_popescu: you never ate a chicks nose drool ?
cazalla: these guys just moved on from alibaba to bitcoin it seems
cazalla: not consciously but hey whatever pleases you
cazalla: you do all sorts of crazy shit on that sherm eh
mircea_popescu: apparently.
cazalla: watched that last night, at least for the first time in full, not a bad movie
mircea_popescu: true romance ? it's great, provided you have the director's cut
mircea_popescu: what the studio released is piss. and the comparison an interesting exercise in how "management" can fuck up a movie even when having everything needed for greatness in a neat package.
cazalla: well shit, i'm not sure which copy i have
mircea_popescu: does it end with them on a beach ?
cazalla: yeah, with a kid
cazalla: what's the difference, just the ending?
mircea_popescu: some bits here and there, and the ending, yeah.
mircea_popescu: but qt was fucking incensed at the time, and i agree he had a point.
chetty: I been hearing an ad for a TV show ...Dark Web, apparently all about Silk Road
cazalla: mr robot?
cazalla: is pretty sure that one is about them
mircea_popescu: cazalla kinda what adolescents have been doing since forever, neh ? pick a movie/music video/whatevs and imagine it was "about them".
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 60400 @ 0.00032933 = 19.8915 BTC [-]
cazalla: well it wouldn't be the first time tv writers have use chans for story lines
mircea_popescu: or vice-versa >D
cazalla: yeah that too.. other idea is that the writers are shitposting about their show to drum up some viral marketing type shit knowing that /pol/ will and has run with it
mircea_popescu: anyway, in fairness what i'm saying is that i don't believe that chan is impressive enough in bodycount to constitute a market anyone would wish to cater to, creating the tv version of hot topic, nor intellectually impressive enough to constitute anyone's thought leadership.
mircea_popescu: but i could be wrong on either score, obviously.
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 75700 @ 0.00032838 = 24.8584 BTC [-] {3}
mircea_popescu: if you feel like giving me a top 5 or whatever most relevant ideas coming out of /pol/ i'd read it.
cazalla: 5 might be a little tough
mircea_popescu: i'll take anything.
cazalla: well i guess the multi-culti immigration might be a start, not that i mind immigrants but i think they are somewhat right in that it undermines social trust in a community
mircea_popescu: this is by no means a novel point, or all that aptly expressed there, is it ?
cazalla: i just see my own anecdotes mirrored there.. grew up in a homogeneous society where everywhere knew everyone.. 25 years later that is no longer the case
cazalla: but then the argument usually veers towards this being the fault of jews
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 43600 @ 0.00032781 = 14.2925 BTC [-]
cazalla: but then that is sorta like blacks blaming whites for their predicament
mircea_popescu: well at least it's not blaming the freemasons.
mircea_popescu: or loose women
cazalla: they blame both of those too
mircea_popescu: (actually, there IS a trend of angry older men trying to make these issues about "whores", but general social discourse's keeping them well repressed atm)
cazalla: they blame loose women for the down fall of the family unit
cazalla: don't get me wrong.. i like the idea of a strong family unit.. but i also like the idea of loose whores provided the strong family doesn't find out
mircea_popescu: anyway i suspect there isn't a way out. historically, the "civilised world" was rich and powerful because it enjoyed a monopoly on trade, built out of scientific and military effort. the twerps in question, joe average, decided to quit supporting the industrial-military complex (chiefly because they got burned twice in 16-18 and then in 39-44, and it hurt badly, esp the 2nd time, and so it's understandable)
mircea_popescu: as a result, it collapsed, and as a result there is absolutely no reason they should make more than a dollar a day.
mircea_popescu: which is where everyone's headed, from alabama to tasmania.
mircea_popescu: which i don't see any problem whatsoever with, but then again i'm privileged, or as alf put it, "rootless kosmopolitanski"
cazalla: so i still read /pol/ daily but i can easily point out where i am hypocritcal on just about everything discussed there.. do as i say, not as i do sort of thing is really what it comes down to
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 56036 @ 0.00033196 = 18.6017 BTC [+] {2}
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 14464 @ 0.00033814 = 4.8909 BTC [+] {2}
mircea_popescu: the question of "what exactly is so speshul about joe doe that he should live other than in a hovel like random nigerian" is paramount, and none of the anti-imigration types seem inclined to address it.
mircea_popescu: so... why is he special ?
mircea_popescu: once we get an answer to that we can start discussing how to oppress the nigerian again, at which point "immigration policy" may be on the agenda. not befoar.
mircea_popescu: and the family unit is more of the same. why should 85% have any access to women at all, and why should the 1% not get 94% of all the pleasantly nubile stoyas out there, with the remainder 6% going to the 14% aspirational betas ?
cazalla: well he's not special and in saying that, i'm not special, but i like but can't explain my desire of social cohesion, which is why i like the hitler videos with endless crowds
mircea_popescu: that's the natural distribution in a 2 million strong society : 10k blokes with a harem averaging high 80s headcounts, 140k blokes double-tagging 60k hos and the rest watching the previous on instagram.
cazalla: i don't have egalitarian values so that the minority get the majority of anything does not bother me
mircea_popescu: cazalla there is something to be said for social cohesion, the problem with it is that it tends to flow towards all-germany / all-russia sort of constructs.
mircea_popescu: either trench warfare or "great leap forward" sorta crap.
mircea_popescu: society (as an immanent beast in human affairs) is scared to death of it, these days. i can see why.
mircea_popescu: i suspect for a while yet the only real social cohesion to be head will be in mmorpg raiding parties.
mircea_popescu: previously it was rock concerts, but that kind-of died somehow, which i find very weird.
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 75007 @ 0.00032781 = 24.588 BTC [-]
cazalla: i would guess because the last thing that matters is the music.. it's all seating arrangements etc now
cazalla: tickets, cds, tshirts.. it's an expensive hobby these days
mircea_popescu: maybe so
cazalla: mmorpg raids is an interesting thought.. i wonder what race demos of that is
mircea_popescu: i personally care a lot more about the fact that there are no movies/bands/anything worth going to see
mircea_popescu: than the fact that some random immigrant's drooling over random 16yo neighbour.
cazalla: my problem with immigrants is that i grew up knowing my neighbours, my community, it was homogeneous and everyone knew everyone (also was a small town)
mircea_popescu: broadway's fucking dead, think about it - it was born out of the need to provide entertainment on the cheap for the hordes of stated insland escapees
cazalla: in the suburbs just outside the city there is none of that and the idea that you know who lives around you is a foreign idea to everyone i've met down here
mircea_popescu: and now... what ? da fuck does it do.
mircea_popescu: cazalla well the idea of community based on geographic proximity / random accident like that is certainly taken a beating on account of the internets. used to be you had a shot at random neighouring cunt just on the grounds of being neighbouring, at some point.
mircea_popescu: nowadays location's nigh on irrelevant.
cazalla: yes i remember a trilema article along the lines of this
cazalla: or maybe it was discussed in logs but made sense in any case
mircea_popescu: prolly was.
cazalla: pol also made it clear that prior generations always had one that came after it which was seen as worse than the one before it, at least until now
mircea_popescu: not true.
cazalla: it's sorta agreed there that this might be the first generation which is more of a pussy than the last
mircea_popescu: human civilisation fails periodically.
mircea_popescu: russia and central europe had a generation of failures that got kicked out in the 90s.
mircea_popescu: china had a generation of failures that got kicked out in the 30s, that's what the entire revolution was about. china actually has lots of these.
mircea_popescu: pick a country and i'll tell you at least one example.
cazalla: i believe you, just sorta reveals the size of the timeline you and i think on
mircea_popescu: austria had one during friedrich's reign and most of europe had one in the 1790s / 1800s
cazalla: the world began in 1982, didn't ya know? :P
mircea_popescu: ah, there is that.
mircea_popescu: heck, woodstock is exactly this "you suck" moment of the us. much blander than historically the norm.
mircea_popescu: (friedrich of teschen, for the readership. ww1 implosion)
