mike_c: "The fact that the XT fork hasn't occurred yet is ridiculous," CoinWallet said. << I do so love the tears of rage and frustration.
mircea_popescu: the reason is that bitcoin tx offers some specific services neither visa nor wire offer.
mircea_popescu: so, no, the price of steak is not going to be considered by comparison to "price of food" defined as "mcshitty menu".
mircea_popescu: because steak isn't that. and so... $5k a transaction is no big deal. if you don't care to have your shit verified by the entire world, go send a wire, at $500 or w/e it will be by then

mircea_popescu loathes to think without premise.
ascii_field: premise is that in certain zimbabwes, net access is dodgy
ascii_field: one effective answer is 'don't go there' - reasonable
mircea_popescu: see, that's the difference. i don't think we ca do a "like to think" if the premise is not an "all" or "every"
mircea_popescu: actually, i would propose that's the difference between think and wank in the space in question.

ascii_field: mircea_popescu designs a parachute, and reasons using 'all' and 'every' ?
ascii_field: is to deploy on every flight ?
mircea_popescu: yes. when you design "a parachute" you design it for "every".
mircea_popescu: if you do not you got a very bad result.
ascii_field: for every pull of the cord.
ascii_field: but not for every flight.
mircea_popescu: so then you say this, and your "Certain" has become an "every"
ascii_field: fine. when i pull this 'cord', we get a bitcoin node in a place where usg does not wish for there to be honest nodes.
ascii_field: that there's your 'every.'
mircea_popescu: "a" is still not every but certain :)

jurov: ascii_field: if it can filter internet such, then it can do radio, too
mircea_popescu: this problem is easily resolved : there can not be an "any" node.
ascii_field: jurov: bugmen rely on radio too much, in modern times, for proper sov-style jamming
jurov: they rely on 'net, too, back since desert storm

mircea_popescu: you said sms lol
mircea_popescu: who the fuck even listens to voicemail. i never have.
mircea_popescu: if someone is dumb enough to talk to a machine they should CONTINUE.
trinque: hahaha
mircea_popescu: i'm not talking to machine talkers.
trinque: voicemail's terrible; I use email and IRC
trinque: and if something doesn't do either of those things, it gets taped into one of them, or abandoned
ascii_field: here in the stone age lands, it is generally expected of a 'serious person' to be reachable by voice phone
trinque: phf: what's this modem? is the sms aspect special, or do I just need to learn those horrible looking codes?

phf: trinque: i parse gsm by hand, because. but there's a handful of linux packages that'll do it for you
ascii_field: or to dial it
trinque: I mean, arbitrarily any way
trinque: and someone chose *that*
trinque: for example I know of a guy that built some radio doodad that farts out s-expressions
phf: version 1 of that was written for razr, because first phone i had with a usb connector
ascii_field: btw, best gsm modem i presently know of for this application is just about everything made by 'huawei'
phf: ^
ascii_field: their usb dongles, at least the ones i tested, can even make/receive voice calls
ascii_field: without analogue wiring
ascii_field: this is almost UNKNOWN on any other vendor
ascii_field: (to date i have not been able to source any but huawei which does this)
mircea_popescu: so for my own curiosity (inspired mostly by our bitcoin experiments here) i had it tested. there's no modern browser thatr doesn't leak memory.
mircea_popescu: and we're talking kbps sort of leaks.

BingoBoingo: Fuck, why couldn't potential fiat revenue stream actualize last month.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform didn't bingo run >9k version for a whiole ?
trinque: Adlai: no, I skipped *all* the classes.
Adlai: asciilifeform: doesn't slush lets any shmuck with a spondongle specify version numbers?
mircea_popescu: Adlai right. redditards, "FIRST APPLE TREE!111 FOUND IT IN MY GARDEN!"
Adlai: BingoBoingo: so you could realize losses for FY2015
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: Client version not block version
BingoBoingo: Adlai: So I could add to the horde
Adlai: what horde, i thought they were all lost in a tragic mining accident
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: I'd have to mine to do block version.
BingoBoingo: Adlai: Who knows anymore
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 38950 @ 0.00073054 = 28.4545 BTC [+] {4}
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: first 'i-suck-hearn-cock' block mined
mircea_popescu: anyway, the bitfinex + kraken thing is pretty memorable lol.
mircea_popescu: exactly what that guy told satoshi the plan's gonna be, back on the original list in 2009. "they'll invent fake btc, trade it and it will "go down".
BingoBoingo: !up EPiSKiNG-
asciilifeform: invent fake btc, trade - same algo as with metals
mircea_popescu: all the derps "buying" "cheap" bitcoin on the scams in question (bitfinex, kraken) remember : it's not yours until you send it to your offsite wallet.
Adlai: "fake btc" -_-
mircea_popescu: Adlai like mtgox btc./
Adlai: fake btc (unlike the real thing) exists solely in the mind of its bagholders
asciilifeform: entirely possible that sell flood of entirely genuine btc
Adlai: mtgox were semifake, you could trade them about
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform nah.
asciilifeform: n00bs collective pant pissing
asciilifeform: 'hearn finally killed'
Adlai: actually yah, and it'd be the best thing to ever happen to btc
asciilifeform: *killed us
mircea_popescu: lol right.
Adlai: (second to satoshi spending directly to mpex)
mircea_popescu: how would that be great ? that'd be miserable.
Adlai: ((without creating an account))
assbot: Bitcoin Block #370434 ... ( )
Adlai: !rate asciilifeform -42 still uses
assbot: Rating should be any non zero value between 10 and -10.
asciilifeform: Adlai: what do you use ?
Adlai: (or for unconfirmed)
Adlai: or better yet, a fucking node
trinque: Adlai seems to be using the Erdos method re: mathematics
asciilifeform: Adlai: your node puts txes in a graphical viewer thing ?
mircea_popescu: yeah since the tools alf dropped nodes are actually much more usable for ths
asciilifeform: ~could~ be usable
asciilifeform: if someone wrote a tool
asciilifeform: that ACTUALLY DOES WHAT bci does
assbot: Last 4 lines bashed and pending review. ( )
asciilifeform: and not 'aha yes equivalent'
mircea_popescu: just dumping the block
BingoBoingo: bci still runs version 7-ish
Adlai: asciilifeform: please elaborate on exactly which "graphical viewer thing" bci does that no other explorer does
Adlai: BingoBoingo: false, they run version j-ish
trinque: stamp just popped back up to 234
asciilifeform: Adlai: for one thing, not being slow as fuck
asciilifeform: (like both of the items you linked)
mircea_popescu: trinque i for one am very curious how bitfinex is going to settle all the buyers.
BingoBoingo: Anyways Adlai I thought you were J-ish
mircea_popescu: kraken not so much, nobody uses the scammy pos
mircea_popescu: but somehow a buncha derps failed to read the memo re bitfinex.
asciilifeform: Adlai: for another thing, ACTUALLY SHOWING THE FUCKING VERSION
Adlai: asciilifeform:
asciilifeform: Adlai: '' does NOT
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform the version is in the block as spit out, what gfx do you need ?
Adlai: uses ruby, it sucks, i know, i like them because they run scripts on demand
asciilifeform: Adlai: where is the version !!
Adlai: tx? block? node?
asciilifeform: Adlai: blokc.
mircea_popescu: block we're discussing
asciilifeform: and i don't even see a list of blocks
asciilifeform: srsly this is ~loathesome~ habit of open source folks, linking to a gimp when i need to take a photoshit
asciilifeform: it is NOT THE SAME !!1111
asciilifeform: don't lie and say 'same'.
trinque: but how are we to in-group signal?
asciilifeform: signal with farts.
mircea_popescu: wait wut ?!
Adlai: wow, webbtc really is slow right now
asciilifeform: and yes, bci is a loathesome usg-operated item, sure.
asciilifeform: but it won't die on account of anyone pretending that xyz five-minutes-of-perl piece of shit is 'equal'
Adlai has yet to find an explorer, other than local-node-and-neurons, that provides
assbot: Bitcoin BlockBrowser - Debug Script Execution ... ( )
asciilifeform reveals, to no one's great surprise, that he is voicing years of frustration with the entire 'open src' world in this thread, not merely bci-replacements.
BingoBoingo: <asciilifeform> signal with farts. << If I understand Edgerouter and Pogo are "farts" that signal ingroup. GIMP is a shit that doesn't work by spz to signal ingroup?
asciilifeform: Adlai: except i didn't ~need~ that
asciilifeform: Adlai: i needed ~clickable block viewer that shows version~
Adlai: well fuck me i'm here to give you what you don't need
assbot: dorodango | create ... ( )
mircea_popescu: a) dude wtf, gimp is the worst example for this, srsly ; b) your own block dump thing actually works for the purpose you discussed, chillax already ; c) there are all sorts of block explorers, yes. it'd be nice if one day someone makes the blockdump one we discussed but that's about it.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: it is actually the best example. of a proggy which naive folks suggest 'will do all the same things'
mircea_popescu: that's not the suggestion. what's said is that gimp is like lisp : if what you want to do can't be done in gimp iot's because you're either stupid or stupid.
mircea_popescu: ie, want to do something that shouldn't be done, or can't figure out how to find someone's pre-made lisp script
mircea_popescu: (yes, gimp trivially works on lisp)
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: go and tell this to a pro artist who has a 14-bit pressure and gyroscopic sensor 'wacom' drawing tablet that pays his rent.
asciilifeform: that does not work with gimp.
mircea_popescu: it's current;ly the only practical application i (or ANYONE ELSE, given that eulora challenge) have for lisp
asciilifeform: it or the 1,001 affine transform items it needs
mircea_popescu: "artist" using "drawing tablet" is retarded by definition.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i have yet to meet an actual pro or semi pro who draws with mice
asciilifeform: or still draws with ink and scanner
mircea_popescu: it is roughly the equivalent of a "really professional chess player" who plays chess in the dark and moving the pieces with his asshole.
mircea_popescu: isn't he elite!!1
asciilifeform: that'd be the OTHERS
asciilifeform: without tablet.
mircea_popescu: mice ? wtf.
asciilifeform: moving pieces with arse.
mircea_popescu: you draw with the fucking pencil.
asciilifeform: go vectorize that.
asciilifeform: or what, vector does not exist, aha ?
asciilifeform: all graphics are no larger than sheet of paper ?
asciilifeform: or metre-tall pixels are ok on billboard
mircea_popescu: so wait. "wacom doesn't work" is an objection to gimp,
mircea_popescu: but "vector is hard" is an argument pro ps ?
asciilifeform: it is for the man who doesn't program device drivers.
mircea_popescu: how about backwards!
asciilifeform: and you can't vectorize a pencil
asciilifeform: not via machine anyway
mircea_popescu: fact that wacom doesn't work with software means you can go fuck it, and fact that vectors are hard means you're still better off with gimp
mircea_popescu: at least you can SCRIPT IT
asciilifeform: the man who can program in scheme, can script it.
mircea_popescu: the man who can't hires one.
asciilifeform: and the artsy fella ?
asciilifeform: hires, l0l
asciilifeform: on artist's wages ?
mircea_popescu: so your artist IS retarded after all.
asciilifeform: of course.
mircea_popescu: not only he spent his money on something thar doesn't work
mircea_popescu: but it was his last money, too.
asciilifeform: i can already picture the conversation:
asciilifeform: cabbie: 'this ford is a piece of shit. stalled again.' mircea_popescu: 'i have a solution!' cabbie: 'oh???111' mircea_popescu: 'here, have this broomstick.' cabbie: 'how do i drive customers on that, feed my family' mircea_popescu: 'you misunderstand, my good man. you stuff it in your arse.' cabbie: 'and... how does this feed by family?' mircea_popescu: 'no, you sit there with it in.'
asciilifeform: before anyone laughs, this approach has much to recommend it
asciilifeform: and in fact is sop in 'open source' world
asciilifeform: when dealing with civilians.
trinque: too late, laughed.
mircea_popescu: get the fuck outta here omfg!
asciilifeform: dollars to doughnuts everybody here has applied precisely this formula, and in fact no other is known.
assbot: Last 8 lines bashed and pending review. ( )
mircea_popescu: i call bullshit. brb while i prove it.
trinque: I mean to be fair, what the man's saying is that gimp has a scripting layer
trinque: makes total sense
trinque: jack your wacom into that or what?
asciilifeform: it does!
asciilifeform: lovely scripting layer, too
asciilifeform: and for all i know, somebody ported wacom to it in last 7 or what years since i last cared
mircea_popescu: so basically you admit you got nothing.
mircea_popescu: good, saves me from fishing out that file setting up a challenge.
BingoBoingo still arts with oil paints
asciilifeform: can find other hardware that is pro sop and not supported by any reasonable open package
asciilifeform: e.g., laboratory robotics
mircea_popescu: hardware that doesn't work doesn't work
asciilifeform: no open anything.
mircea_popescu: this is not to be excused in software.
mircea_popescu: wtf bs is this!
asciilifeform: hardware without which job isn't done - must work. even if operator has to fellate obama.
asciilifeform: which - he will.
asciilifeform: or changes jobs
asciilifeform: (as i did)
mircea_popescu: no bad piece of hardware is required by anyone but idiots.
mircea_popescu: period and full fucking stop, there isn't even what to discuss here.
mircea_popescu: all that can be done is repeating nonsense reddit style.
mircea_popescu: "oh noes, how about cabbie". pshhhh
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i'll bite. find me a mass spectrometer with fully open specs
asciilifeform: or for that matter, GPU!

mircea_popescu: this is still not a "ps is good" thing.
asciilifeform: and yes, ~we~ know why this is so. but civilian does not, and blames 'crappy open crap'
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: not good thing. but it is a jail
mircea_popescu: completely ungermane spurious argument is orthogonal!
mircea_popescu: da fuck do i care what jwz blames.
mircea_popescu: "oh i really just want my computer to just work hurr"
asciilifeform: pointing out that this is not one of those jails which disappears if you stop believing in it
asciilifeform: and yes, they do.
mircea_popescu: has nothing to do with belief.
mircea_popescu: ps turns out, without excewption, in all cases, inferior work, BECAUSE IT SUCKS. it. irretrievably, it ruins work.
asciilifeform: they want their spectrometer/chromatograph/triaxial robot/etc/... to work.
mircea_popescu: and has, for 10-15 years now.
mircea_popescu: claiming otherwise because you got your sexual advances turned down by a mass spectrometer is nuts.
trinque: relatedly, I have a 1 for relaxedman when he comes back. I yelled at him to *read* his way through snags with gentoo, and he did!
mircea_popescu: neither jwz nor mass spectrometers nor anything else has any bearing here.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: it sure does suck. like most of the turdalicious offerings. but it is a mistake to suppose that folks use it on account of not having been woken up to the existing alternative
mircea_popescu: not in THIS case
mircea_popescu: which is why i said it's the worst example you could have come up with
trinque: did not bitch "oh but it didn't work out of the box"
asciilifeform may be missing something here
mircea_popescu: in the ps-gimp case, the only reason is strictly user being an imbecile.
mircea_popescu: yeah, you're missing the something where gimp is pretty much the only foss success in the actual marketplace.
mircea_popescu: ie, it saves man-hours. many. many many man hours.
mircea_popescu: that and fucking blender.
asciilifeform: blender, incidentally, was ransomed.
asciilifeform: possibly the greatest antisuccess, from that pov.
mircea_popescu: being run by a bunch of incredibly idiotic idiots, yes. but still.
asciilifeform: in that it began life as an ordinary commercial package, written by folks who worked for a living
mircea_popescu: the software itself is os, and it does work.
asciilifeform: is today, yes.
mircea_popescu: this is what we're discussing
asciilifeform: was ransomed, for, iirc, 800K usd.
asciilifeform does not use blender with any regularity and cannot comment further
mircea_popescu: i don'trecall, but maybe cvut a digit. anyway, hgow is this related ?
asciilifeform: related in the sense that it is not 'ethnically open source'
asciilifeform: was born under conditions that are not available in the 'open source' world.
mircea_popescu: and you're not ethnically a programmer.
mircea_popescu: wtf nonsense is this.
asciilifeform: in precisely that sense
mircea_popescu: there isn't a nation called "Programmer".
asciilifeform: there almost is, and it is the one pictured in sebastian brandt's 'ship of fools'
asciilifeform: (mega-b00k, recommended to all)
BingoBoingo: <trinque> relatedly, I have a 1 for relaxedman when he comes back. I yelled at him to *read* his way through snags with gentoo, and he did! << Promised the same for OpenBSD, but...
trinque: can't speak to that, but the guy got himself booted, through X and a DE, so I can dig that.
mircea_popescu: anyway. yes usg can be rejected just by rejecting it. no, there aren't places where this actually hurts one. yes if one perceives to be hurt it's because one did something stupid in the past he'll have to undo. no this isn't anyone else's problem and no this calls for no sympathy.
asciilifeform: this is entirely true
asciilifeform: but the 'stupid move' can be - the choice of profession.
mircea_popescu: only if the "profession" is saomethiong like "pop star",
mircea_popescu: ie, not a profession.
asciilifeform: or vector artist.
asciilifeform: or spectrometer user.
mircea_popescu: neither.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: be so kind as to describe what the mass spec user ought to be doing
mircea_popescu: and don't start with "gimme free stuff in very ellaborate detail of compelx usage".
asciilifeform: to escape from shitblows
mircea_popescu: buy spectrometer, 2nd hand. reverse it or pay for it be reversed. run it on sane computer.
asciilifeform: let's work this gedankenexample?
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: and pay to have sane computer produced ?
mircea_popescu: useful life of the tool is 30 years +, so. you get to "break it in" for a few months first.
mircea_popescu: a "sane-indistinct" computer can be had for the task as defined, out of shelf parts.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu perhaps did not think that usg could be any moar retarded than it looks already, but here is a mega-secret: a great many (most?) u.s. laboratories have personnel empowered to purchase materiel (e.g., spectrometer) but not ever hire anyone.
asciilifeform: hence no reverser.
mircea_popescu: i do nopt care about the problems of tribes in africa.
mircea_popescu: why do you ?
asciilifeform: except when one appears by accident (as my old job)
asciilifeform: because i live there.
mircea_popescu: africa is not something that can be fixed. it's what the word "africa" means.
asciilifeform: [insert link to 1,001 pertinent threads here]
mircea_popescu: "broken beyond repair" in african.
assbot: Last 4 lines bashed and pending review. ( )
asciilifeform is not presently at all convinced that non-africa piece of the planet needs him for anything
asciilifeform or at least anything involving mass spectrometers, rather than knife sharpeners
mircea_popescu: i imagine poor alf mother was in it for a 3 week labour
mircea_popescu: until they could convince the infant that indeed he is "needed" outside.
mircea_popescu: because that's the criteria nao.
asciilifeform: 'every sperm is wanted! every sperm is good. every sperm is needed! in your neighbourhood!' (tm) (r) (montypython)
mircea_popescu: anyway, i can appreciate the part where usg is there to give money to "compensate" the retarded kids that didn't reverse their spectrometer and so ended up with X loss tjhrough any of thbe multiple avenues. and i can appreciate how this makes lazy people manifest thjeir lazy.
asciilifeform: well yes, this is the pons asinorum of why microshit is even a thing
mircea_popescu: but this is not your concern!
mircea_popescu: you don't do the right things TO be paid. you do them BECAUSE they're the right things.

asciilifeform: and yes, Right Thing.
mircea_popescu: yes the world should work correctly. but whether it does or does not is not your fucking problem.
asciilifeform: precisely that.
asciilifeform: but it ~is~ my problem when the sword is over my personal neck.

asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i'm kinda curious on what planet it is sop to have the mass spectrometer reversed and enlinuxed. because i'd like to move to that planet. instead of here, where, as of five minutes ago, my mailbox was NOT deluged with offers of vast riches (or even paid rent) for reversing laboratory instruments.
mircea_popescu: no meatwot eh ? :)
asciilifeform: on the planet where i live, owners of such items suck usg cock, WITHOUT EXCEPTION
asciilifeform: i dun think this particular wot exists.
mircea_popescu: meta nsa no more ?
asciilifeform: or at least it creates no evidence of its existence
asciilifeform: meta nsa makes own spectrometer.
asciilifeform: out of pure thought.
asciilifeform: or, more realistic, when really needs an 'open' instrument, hires away the designer
mircea_popescu: one "really needs" an open instrument like one really needs a trustworthy wife.
mircea_popescu: all the time without exception.
Adlai thinks asciilifeform's attitude is only correct in the pre-scarcity world
Adlai: someday all the designers will be dead, and all the instruments rusted
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: with instruments, it is more of 'do you want the crack whore who fucks 10,001 sailors monthly or the standard whore who fucks 101 engineers'
asciilifeform: Adlai: i already live in the world where designers are (largely) dead and the instruments are getting only more rusted
mircea_popescu: yet magically no one's trying to do anything. somehow.

asciilifeform would like to know - but does not expect mircea_popescu to say - why mircea_popescu believes the 'cheap' coinz are fictional, rather than panic-sold by the usual folks
mircea_popescu: crossed wire.
asciilifeform: c0sm1c rayz!
mircea_popescu: no. you understand what this means ?
BingoBoingo: Not the first time
mircea_popescu: normally the price goes 10 / 11
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: apparently not?
mircea_popescu: when the price goes 10 / 7 it is because the people selling the fake btc do no wish to run their meagre offering into the bids of 10
mircea_popescu: so they fix the "exchange" to not serve bids anymore.
asciilifeform: but serve some, for show ?
mircea_popescu: so as to get the fraudulent price signal out
mircea_popescu: so that maybe others panic.
asciilifeform: shake loose what is not bolted down well, sure.
mircea_popescu: and i expect a sec investigation into bitfinex post haste.
mircea_popescu: unless the sec particularly wants me to run an investigation into IT.,
asciilifeform: 10 / 7 is sufficient evidence for this hypothesis? and bitfinex alone originates this gambit ?
mircea_popescu: with the caveat that i run my investigations with people hanging by butcher hooks.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform it is, yes.

asciilifeform: 'Due to the ECI relationship, the technicians for AT&T had to possess a Top Secret security clearance to actually just access the fiber, because they might "accidentally" discover the tap, or discover data being diverted out of the fiber optic multiplexers. By the way, "ECI" means that the company is given a code name to conceal their involvement in illegal activities. For example, AT&T has a code name, MCI has a code name, Sp
asciilifeform: rint has one, and so on. The ECI codename for AT&T is "FAIRVIEW" and also US-990, but pay attention to the US-990 SIGAD code and it tends to indicate when a code and alias was initiated. US-990 dates from the day AT&T was broken up. On that date, each of the "baby bells" was given a ECI codename and SIGAD code name in the manner of that of AT&T.'

asciilifeform: 'As each fiber optic company sought a new undersea cable landing license from the FCC they were required by the NSA to enter into a classified contract with the NSA for TWO access point for each undersea cable.

Then, behind the multiplexer an
