It would store every single post made by every single user on a database run by Red Hat for the use of law enforcement agencies should they require. A
mircea_popescu: fter a bit of research I learned that Red Hat is itself an NSA subsidiary, and that the same program has been used by 4chan since 2010. This was presented as an opportunity to “legitimize” 8chan, and thus remove it from the Google blacklist (and perhaps regain access to funding sites that have shut out 8chan).
mircea_popescu: I was asked to insert this code by Jim personally. I was afraid to say no, so I said I’d get to it, but went straight home and booked a flight. 8chan had become a shadow of what it once was, and I wasn’t about to betray the userbase and become a lackey for the US government. To be honest, I don’t think Frederick wants this either — but what choice does he have? He is heavily disabled, alone in a foreign thi
mircea_popescu: rd world country, and completely dependent on Jim. He’s trapped.
mircea_popescu: Anyways, that’s my story. I wish it didn’t end this way, I really do. I had to move back in with my mother, who I don’t get along with, and now I have to find an actual job…but I felt obliged to tell you all the truth, and to apologize for the way things turned out. I won’t tell you to quit 8chan like I did, but you should at least know what’s really happening."

mircea_popescu: kako has a point, peritoneal piercing worse.
mircea_popescu: diana_coman i wonder if your ordinary is the reason my q dropped from 303 to 300
diana_coman: which ordinary (the sg is not yet mined) - do you meant the earlier wm and sm ones?
diana_coman: I didn't get huge loot from either though (no mention in the hall of looters thing, lol)
mircea_popescu: well, something. happened the past coupla hours.
diana_coman: uhm, a bit weird
mircea_popescu: o, and i found a clover. q131
ascii_field: >> looked for rodari's thing where 'the poor man has seven mondays, the lazy man has seven sundays' but turned up instead the other old favourite by same, regarding 'what do trades smell like?' >>
assbot: Logged on 03-10-2015 19:42:55; mircea_popescu: let the man earn his sprats
assbot: Le Filastrocche: Gli odori dei mestieri ... ( )
diana_coman: ooo, congrats
ascii_field: it needs an update
diana_coman: don't tell me you found it around the grass area though?
ascii_field: e.g., what does programming smell of.
mircea_popescu: diana_coman did so.
diana_coman: ha ha, double congrats then
mircea_popescu: ascii_field nowadays ? stale pizza and cumsocks.
mircea_popescu: well... "pizza".
ascii_field: street pizza.
mircea_popescu: that;s what finance smells of.
assbot: Last 2 lines bashed and pending review. ( )
ascii_field: in my mind, programming smells of stale coffee soaked into carpets, of ozone, and of blown capacitor
mircea_popescu: yeah, because you're just the guy to program capacitors.
ascii_field: most finance isn't carried out by street pizza either
assbot: Dexter's Laboratory Talking Dog - YouTube ... ( )
ascii_field: (at least not in present tense)
mircea_popescu: ascii_field as the verse goes, "comunismu-ntii te-ajuta, tac tac tac, si apoi te executa, pac pac pac."
ascii_field: ahahaha!
ascii_field quite liked that one
mircea_popescu: anyway. i can attest at some point programming smelled of listing paper (particular pigment scent at the time) and static dust.
ascii_field: dotmatrix ink has a smell very certainly.
ascii_field still owns a working 9x9 panasonic and a gigantic crate of perfa paper
ascii_field: bzzzzkhhhhzzzz
mircea_popescu: the old ones, you know, 8 dot
ascii_field: i rather ~liked~ matrix printers.
ascii_field: for the perfa paper, specifically
ascii_field: where else can you print a scroll.
mircea_popescu: well, the honeymoon.
mircea_popescu: everyone rather liked theirwife when she was 20.
ascii_field: so for unrelated reasons i picked up 4th ed. of stroustrup. the one with c++11. and lo and behold, it more or less obsoletes 'boost' etc.
mircea_popescu: obviously, now /me is lost reading the bash. and therein, "asciilifeform: would almost rather cook own dinner, and not have to deal with derps in any capacity.". which obviously i read "opacity" on first pass.
kakobrekla: that thing needs flushing
mircea_popescu: let ascii do it. as per that selfsame discussion.
mircea_popescu: let's make alf do everything :D
thestringpuller: ascii_field: re: C++11; is it worth using?
ascii_field: thestringpuller: theoretically
ascii_field: thestringpuller: the committee took its sweet time lifting features from ada, functional langs (even lambdas…) etc. but does your compiler have them now ?
ascii_field: iirc gcc has some. but not all. and probably not ~your~ gcc.
thestringpuller: ^^^ makes me wish I had taken more studies on compilers
ascii_field: buy the dragon book
ascii_field: or, if feeling modern and weak - appel.
thestringpuller: ascii_field: I have it. Just too afraid to open it. (dragon book)
thestringpuller: bought it in 2010 (methinks) and just never opened it cause I felt I was too stupid to understand the pages at the time. still feel that way.

mircea_popescu: in other news, the cftc / everyone else must get it into their fucking skulls that they do not have authority to regulate "futures" or "swaps" or anything else in the general.
mircea_popescu: they very strictly and quite deliberately limitedly have autority over obsolete crap nobody cares about.

mircea_popescu: ag3nt_zer0 it's just standard confirmation time. the problem with technology is that it works a certain way, which people actually understand. users, however, which are eminently NOT people, but fucking animals, don't care about all that. instead they "try" things, and then "come to expect" on the basis of you know, two attempts last Sunday. and then get all aggitated if their unfounded, poorly researched, biased, badl
mircea_popescu: y conducted experiments get contradicted by practice down the line.
mircea_popescu: and want "someone to do something about it".
