mircea_popescu: you think the married woman is committing adultery alone ?
kakobrekla: whats the difference between female tongue and male tongue ???
mircea_popescu: female tongue is split
mircea_popescu: no wait, i was thinking of the wrong species.
cazalla: kakobrekla, i don't know, it's not about that anyway, i just don't fancy sticking my tongue there but to each their own
mircea_popescu: cazalla well you realise if your bar for being bothered is "being pictures of ME doing things", i got god's own work cut out for me here...
cazalla: mircea_popescu, how is it an incestous act for me if i am not related to them?
mircea_popescu: cuz you're in it.
cazalla: fuck, so be it then if it mean doing twins
mircea_popescu: ehehe.
mircea_popescu: problem with doing twins is that, like anything else in life, you get used to it.
cazalla: and nothing much bothers me, why should i be bothered someone else enjoys giving rimjobs
cazalla: i'll have to take your word for it as this is a problem i doubt i will ever have

shinohai: 366172 it updated but on regular blockchain

mod6: good deal man.

shinohai: Buying a pogo with btc that was on my 0.5.3. node was kinda cool too.
asciilifeform: i thought everybody knew, at this point, that one cannot expect to end up with same blkxxxx at all times, on account of forklets.

mod6: <+asciilifeform> i thought everybody knew, at this point, that one cannot expect to end up with same blkxxxx at all times, on account of forklets. << yeah i recall.

asciilifeform: somebody found a bug in 'blkcut' but did not follow up re: replicating

shinohai: link me. I have never installed gentoo in my life, but a good time to learn
mod6: ah, yeah, so ... this guide is for a physical box (takes you through using livecd) -- if you wanna set it up in a VM im sure you can do something similar with a livecd, just hvae to attach the iso file to the virtual dvd/cdrom drive.. and probably follow the same steps.

mod6: im not positive (i don't have access to my pf.conf atm) that i've ever used random-id. i think that's for a very specific problem. but yeah you probably /do/ want scrub all reassemble tcp
trinque: cool, am doing that
mod6: looks like you can use random-id for some normalizatoin purposes... main thing is here, read the pf.conf man page 2x and then build up your firewall and use the heck outta tcpdump to ensure what your rule set is as you want it.
mod6: start simple, then build in more complexity as only necessary.

mircea_popescu: i am not opposed "to scalability". i am opposed to very specific idiocy for very clearly delineated technical reasons.
hanbot: srsly, why's "the poor" in quotes?!
mircea_popescu: i just don't happen to be clueless enough to confuse those for "Scalability". considering i am not actually a technical expert, this reflects very poorly opn the intellectual abilities and assorted scholarship of random derps opining on
mircea_popescu: and in any case - it's not some "disain for the poor" that's at work. just because everyone is on a (mostly hypocritical) fixation on loving the poor does not make my position disdain
mircea_popescu: i merely do not give enough of a shit about the cause celebre du jour to neglect technical arguments for its sake.
mircea_popescu: if anyone still has a twitter account, maybe link the derp to the above. you never know when athlete face learns something from the internets.

mod6: I linked him
mircea_popescu: the "sell support" model has been thoroughly debunked in the field. or at least that's the moral i draw from revierwing history.
mircea_popescu: the only endpoint for that is where rhel ended up : a cheaper USG Department of Windows.
mircea_popescu: if that's what you aim to do with your life, go to new york join the police force.
BingoBoingo: "sell support" worked for cisco and oracle when marketing to the helpless and overencumbered with bezzle

phf: we had a better thing than hackathon. a small group of junior developers were tasked with designing a curriculum and writing tutorials for training people with zero computer skills to become rails developers. to, i shit you not, "help disadvantaged peoples".
trinque: the concept was obviously shat by marketing people who believed in the myth of "the weekend app that made a million bezzlars"
trinque: obviously if it worked for "them" it'll solve all our corporate dysfunction

trinque: phf: like this was gonna get some bum off the street, making rails sites?
trinque: gernika: yeah, the one where they fucked up project management so you're gonna ship this weekend by god!
gernika: At one such hackathon, employees were encouraged to spend the night in the office.
trinque: all of these people are useless
phf: trinque: i was at one "interview" with a guy with zero programmer experience, straight from "you can do anything!" video, we're talking "dropped out of art degree to become a waiter, but hours were brutal, so i want to become a programmer"

trinque: the greatest thing you can be is a 20 year old billionaire that blasted off doing something pedestrian

gernika: CEO told our team ours sucked.
phf: that's an old school notion, trickster as a hero and all that, but i don't think this is that. these people are not even hustlers, i don't think there's any awareness there.
gernika: Which, hey - would good if that happened more. Sadly the CEO's own idea turned out to suck and the startup went out of business.

mircea_popescu: which your guys are not.
asciilifeform: much of history of physical science (arguably the 'good times') were squarely in the 'secret society' days
asciilifeform: public discourse - aha, nasdaq, not mpex
mircea_popescu: "physical scientist" was never a profession.
asciilifeform: alchemist!
mircea_popescu: for that matter, spinoza was a lens polisher by trade. his profession wasn't "philosopher". that was his hobby.

asciilifeform wonders if anyone has carried out any serious public work whatsoever re: mempool tx propagation
asciilifeform notices that all of his nodes carry precisely the same tx, but then again they are all peering one another...
asciilifeform: << l0l, poor buggers are wedged
assbot: - Bitnodes ... ( )
asciilifeform: i oughta knock on their door and tell'em
asciilifeform: esp. funny considering that they portscan planet 24/7 and try to -addnode to everybody who answers
asciilifeform: (incl. even us)
trinque: alright, that sob checks his underwear via cron and restarts if need be
trinque: someone give me a shout if he disappears again
scoopbot_revived: Prepare to be insanely, incredibly, very very jealous with envy!
asciilifeform sits and thinks, wondering whether anyone has produced clockless (muller gate) miner
asciilifeform: ideal application - small circuit, precious-little comms with outside world, etc
asciilifeform: << old threadz, for n00bz
assbot: Logged on 22-12-2013 17:13:53; asciilifeform: the clockless ARM (pretty braindamaged idea, to take a classical cpu and make it clockless, but anyway) had to be designed ad hoc, avoiding industry-standard toolchains.
asciilifeform: << unrelated, historical lulz
assbot: Why the Z-80's data pins are scrambled ... ( )
asciilifeform: and for some more lulz. tried to find some material re: 'non-outsourceable puzzles', vaguely recalled that it was an idea whereby mining pool is made impossible on account of any participant being able to undetectably claim the entire reward for himself. then learned that there is no such field, properly speaking, as 'non-outsourceable puzzles', and that it was a crackpot creation of miller (the one featured in http://trilema.
