brg444: where may I find most up to date instruction as to how to register with assbot?
mircea_popescu: "Connections are made over clearnet even when using a proxy or onlynet=tor, which leaks connections on the P2P network with the real location of the node. Knowledge of this traffic along with uptime metrics from can allow observers to easily correlate the location and identity of persons running Shitcoin-XT nodes."

mircea_popescu: what did cypriots get hit with, 84% ?
mircea_popescu: they're still negotiating it, obviously, which is why the rule. but i doubt it'll be under 70%.
brg444: Hi pete. What qualifies as new in that case? It is one I created a few months ago following the instructions on your blog..
punkman: wasn't nearly as bad in cyprus

mircea_popescu: oh. yeah, but quickly diminshing returns. something like 86-88% is probably right.
brg444: Done, wait a few I guess?

punkman: hmm trying to find exact numbers from cyprus bail-in but it's all spammy blog posts
pete_dushenski: i seem to recall 40-50%
mircea_popescu: not like they ever told the truth.
punkman: I bet some russians lost 80%
punkman: "As part of the deal, BoC absorbed the loans and insured deposits of Laiki, formerly the second-biggest bank, after its uninsured deposits had been comprehensively bailed in. The new bank was then recapitalised by converting 47.5% of BoC’s uninsured deposits into equity."
mircea_popescu: the thing is... even after that cyprus thing, there were still peopel thick enough to keep money in greek banks.
mircea_popescu: and even today, there's people with dollars in us banks etc.
mircea_popescu: there's truly no curing human idiocy. butcher them and lay em out in the sun is the only cure.
punkman: yes that's the only reason I keep mentioning the greek situation. Tomorrow it's gonna be you.
mircea_popescu: well, not me, but yes, everyone who "had no alternative".

ascii_field: it would really liven up my work
jurov: sizeof returns size_t which may or may not be same as int.. and printf expects int here

ascii_field: nothing to do with c
ascii_field: but with unix
ascii_field: (of which stdlib is quite arguably part)
ascii_field: that is why i said, ~the language~)
ascii_field: and when a situation like this does come up, a civilized compiler (there is ONLY ONE known, gcc) ~will~ give you useful info re: types

jurov: (just to split hairs)
ascii_field: now try getting similarly compact description in a cpp proggy re: e.g., the map issue.

mircea_popescu: what do you think a military is, some sort of a country club ? it exists to obey orders. the orders atm are on the line of "scoring officers' sensitivity to inane nontopics"
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform mexicans are kinda lazy methinks. the arabs are more serious when they do it.
mircea_popescu: <trinque>and I would expect a military dictatorship period directly following the fall of usg << IF you can find a certain corporal in the army that will get badly defeated and who resents the coupla decades of peace which consist mostly of american teenagers being used as public toilets from rashapur to ankara, then yes, maybe, dictatorship.

assbot: Logged on 20-08-2015 02:42:28; mod6: The hashes look like the match -- mainly. asciilifeform, can you confirm that this is correct or incorrect?
asciilifeform: that was the intent
asciilifeform: you should get same thing i did, possibly excepting the timestamps
asciilifeform: (i'm for abolishing those, on account of their profound uselessness...)
asciilifeform: at any rate, diff it with mine, nothing but timestamps must differ.

mod6: it look to me that the hashes match. but they're not all in the same order for som reason.
mod6: *some
asciilifeform: mod6: interesting. sort, compare.
asciilifeform: srsly there is no end to the retardation of linux
mod6: yeah, i'll go through it closer tomorrow see if I can work it out.
mod6: true. no idea why that awk command seems to honk on ubuntu.
assbot: Logged on 20-08-2015 02:24:39; mod6: asciilifeform: also, you know, i never did run before on ubuntu (14.04), but when I was testing before (few days ago) it was all on gentoo. worked and still does work good on gentoo... but now I get this error when I run it on Ubuntu:
asciilifeform: y'know what,
asciilifeform: if you have an ubuntu,
asciilifeform: take it by its reins, lead it out behind the barn,
asciilifeform: and shoot it in the head.
mod6: hahah
asciilifeform: then sell for glue.
asciilifeform: this is from here on my official recommendation re: ubuntu of all versions.
asciilifeform: 'plan9' is more of a linux than ubuntu.
asciilifeform: fuck, qnx is.
asciilifeform: i will support plan9 (which, i dare say, is spiffy) long before ubuntu.
BingoBoingo: plan9 is really pretty fly

asciilifeform: gimme all or nothing, i say.
asciilifeform: screw this 'i ran an os in userland on other os because i needed a thesis 111!!111' shit.
BingoBoingo: Problem seems to be they used plan9 userland as a path to saving linux when the linux part could have been flushed
BingoBoingo does not know their stimulus for keeping linux of life support, may have been Nvidia...

assbot: Logged on 20-08-2015 03:33:24; pete_dushenski:
hanbot: asciilifeform so lemme get something straight here:
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform why surprising ? nobody seriously thought women were in there.
asciilifeform: glaringly, no mention of therealbitcoin
asciilifeform: but all else is a good exposition.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: the chumpers, one might suppose, thought this
asciilifeform: hanbot: hm?
hanbot: "orchestra" supercedes "rotor" which supercedes "stator", and the v versioning system is usable (as-is) for "orchestra" only, correct?
asciilifeform: orchestra consists of precisely the same patches which made it into rel1 and those which are being considered by mod6 and ben_vulpes for inclusion in rel2
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i'm not reading random expose of random derp hoping to matter. sorry.
asciilifeform: hanbot: in its present condition, it supercedes nothing at all, except for the laborious 'here's where to get all the patches and how they depend on each other' docs
asciilifeform: hanbot: it will, possibly, supercede these if and when ben_vulpes, mod6, et al, agree that my current approach is correct.
pete_dushenski: gnite all!

asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: it has snapshots of choice hearnias, with commentary
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: and a more-or-less accurate (for a non-#b-a denizen) outline of events re: same.
mircea_popescu: good for it. i dun know the author and don't care what he might wish to say one way or the other.
asciilifeform: skip the parts where he talks, then
asciilifeform: (thing is full of screen caps of hearn & gavin and their code, doing their thing.)
hanbot: asciilifeform okay. but supposing i want to try out your versioning system & sign it and all, i -need- the "orchestra" build, do i not?
asciilifeform: anyone who doesn't care for the 'entomology' here - can safely skip whole shebang.
mircea_popescu: they're taken from other people.
asciilifeform: hanbot: you will, yes. but it is not a build, presently. only a set of patches re-created with vdiff and signed - currently by myself only.
mircea_popescu: the thing's basically a usgism, in spirit if not in form.
mircea_popescu: "here's my picture in front of the pyramids"
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: entomological interest only, yes.

mircea_popescu: im not saying you shouldn't read it or anything, but you asked me what i make of it. i don't.
hanbot: asciilifeform oh, i see. thanks!
mircea_popescu: re the ashley madison thing, i believe it chiefly provides the same service faux exchanges etc provide to the click-bound generation. ie, they get to pretend like they're traders, don juans, what not, all from the safety of their own den, and - crucially - without actually doing it.
