shinohai: I wonder if I could sell olive-oil cooled computers. Market the oil as being trampled at precise temperatures under the feet of certifiable virgins. Increases the cooling properties.
asciilifeform: anyway submerging is nontrivial (electrolytic caps soak up your coolant and bloat, then burst) and you can also forget about repairs or upgrade
asciilifeform: likewise submerged cooling works great for, e.g., mains transformer outdoors, but for 'point source' of heat like cpu, requires circulation pumps, which... noise
asciilifeform: i considered it, yes
asciilifeform: a decade ago, even.
asciilifeform: it worked ok for cray because he ~designed for it~
asciilifeform: pc crapola - isn't.

mircea_popescu: shinohai olive oil is actually not terrible for this role. just, prohibitively expensive.
asciilifeform: electrolytic caps soak, burst

asciilifeform: the other thing that you will find, if you do this, is that... the parasitic capacitance nails you.
asciilifeform: recall permeattivity ?
mircea_popescu: no, because see, olive oil.

asciilifeform: kakobrekla: 'fanless' ps typically relies on there being airflow from cpu+case fans
asciilifeform: (try and take one, run under 100% load on a bench with no flow, on a hot summer day)
mircea_popescu: it occurs to me, you could just get some of that aluminum foil flexible tubing stuff, plug the case in and have the vented done in the other room.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: this is louder still
mircea_popescu: well no, you serpentine the tube.
asciilifeform: the correct recipe when one has other rooms is to run the displays over fiber
asciilifeform: and have the machine far, far away.
asciilifeform: as symbolics did
mircea_popescu: also this.
kakobrekla: asciilifeform it has a fan it just doesnt run it
asciilifeform: (the thing sounds like an airplane, literally)
kakobrekla: so its not fanless.
mircea_popescu: put the big iron in the basement. check it out, BingoBoingo vax lives!
asciilifeform: kakobrekla: i run at 90-100% load on a typical day
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i've intended to do this for 15 years, but it requires a dwelling with multiple stories
kakobrekla: get a bigger one and it will run at lower relative load :)
asciilifeform: kakobrekla: if pc ps came in 20kW, i would...
mircea_popescu: for the record, sed 's/<[^>]*//g' takes just about 1k seconds to purge a 6gb pile of webcrud into 1.5gb of pressed juice.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform you got no basement ? i thought you had a house not flat
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: it is a flat house.
mircea_popescu: o wait, swamp.
mircea_popescu: what do you mean "flat house"
asciilifeform: kakobrekla: the basic problem is that there are no miracles, semiconductors have a temperature ceiling, the heat has to leave as quickly as it appears, or meltdown
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: 1 level
mircea_popescu: but it's a house, no ? it necessarily has a roof
kakobrekla: very high efficiency helps
mircea_popescu: so you got an attic.
asciilifeform: has an attic, which is entirely unsuitable for electronics
mircea_popescu: whyssat ?
asciilifeform: (boiling hot in the summer, mega-condensation in the winter, not hermetically sealed either)
mircea_popescu: bwahahah
mircea_popescu: us technologee ?
asciilifeform: understand, attics exist for insulation
asciilifeform: so a properly-constructed one would be ~worse~ place to park cpu
mircea_popescu: depends whose. but anyway - you hopefully rent this sad hovel, not own it
asciilifeform: i don't 'own' anything
mircea_popescu: get a properly made house.
mircea_popescu: pro tip : cured meats as well as grains used to be stored there.
assbot: Logged on 08-06-2015 04:27:15; asciilifeform: i, for instance, would much like to publicly register as 'anyone who walks in with my name and slave serial number and tries to take a mortgage, ever, is to be shot immediately'
mircea_popescu: what mortgage.
asciilifeform: well i assumed that's what mircea_popescu meant by 'own'. that's how poorfags in usaschwitz 'own' houses.
mircea_popescu: so have more money.
asciilifeform: i'm not sure i'd even use computers if i had Moar Money (tm) (r)
mircea_popescu: i think ima have this printed on cards. universal solution.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: cards have 2 sides! one side shows recipe A: broomstick
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform you know i actually did the same thing ? mid 90s to mid 00s, i didn't evne own one.
asciilifeform: other, B: 'have some money'
asciilifeform: anyway none of the thermal problems are a thing on a dirigible, which comes with free airflow.
asciilifeform: so mircea_popescu does not need any of this.
asciilifeform: and i wouldn't either, if had 'moar money'
mircea_popescu: actually, i don't really give a shit about fan noise, not while im awake at any rate.
asciilifeform: as it is, i'll bbl, gotta go slowly die in a box for a while
mircea_popescu: i prolly also run cheaper, shittier monitors than all of you, and in general... i'm just a more modest fellow!

copypaste: mircea_popescu I guess if that works. Afaik /b/ is actually logged and publicly accessible.
copypaste: I'm quoting a trilema article for the purposes of commentary
copypaste: If you give me a few minutes I'll get to the commentary :)

copypaste: I was getting to that too :D
copypaste: Anywho, /b/ is archived by many third parties, but the archive sites have a maximum lifetime of 18 months. After that time, an all encompassing archive always fails.
mircea_popescu: has been around for a few years now for instance
jurov: nice how the ethereal ideal of "text" that can't be falsified in any conceivable system meets reality
copypaste: There are many reasons. Perhaps DMCA notices, perhaps the size of the archived content is too much for the derp running it to maintain, perhaps the guy running it just doesn't want to
copypaste: Ah ha, but is not just for /b/, and it doesn't strive to archive everything, only requested things.
mircea_popescu: jurov dude, srsly. for one thing, the file is 1.5gb, the available ram 4x that. EVEN IF IT READ IT AS A SINGLE LINE it should work.
copypaste: So's view of /b/ is not comparable to the #b-a log, which represents everything
mircea_popescu: but people can't fucking code.
mircea_popescu: copypaste true.
mircea_popescu: honestly, chans have to be toilet paper, who the hell is going to waste the bw/hdds for it otherwise.
copypaste: Indeed, I came to that conclusion independently
mircea_popescu: however... a wot-based chan, now that may be interesting.
mircea_popescu: you could technically run a chan off v.
copypaste: How could it work?
copypaste: I could help make one if you have an idea
copypaste: Would it still be anonymous ?
mircea_popescu: well, you could go two ways with it. one'd be, subscription driven, like a sort of twitter. one can see any content of people whose sigils they imported and nothing else.
copypaste: I don't understand how anonymity and the WoT could intersect in a meaningful way
mircea_popescu: the other would be push driven - people encrypt their photos to the keys they want to see them and no others.
mircea_popescu: neither of this would be anonymous - it would be pseudonymous.
mircea_popescu: anonimity is for idiots.
copypaste: ah, I see. So like Reddit then
mircea_popescu: either way a random cs-illiterate third party would not see anything.
copypaste: I've actually never even heard of a chan with forced usernames
mircea_popescu: so like twitter-reddit on sane-tor
copypaste: Much less forcing GPG keys
mircea_popescu: copypaste how are they forced ? you run gpg and make a key. whatever it comes out.
mircea_popescu: can make one key per post if you want.
mircea_popescu: ideally you replace the browser entirely, also. run as a sort of torrent.
copypaste: I see. It could have an option then to see posts not in your WoT
copypaste: Then to see posts in your Level 1 WoT, Level 2 only and so on
copypaste: I think it's a cool idea
mircea_popescu: depends which model you choose. if people encrypt their output, there's jack you can do
copypaste: No need for encryption, perhaps as an option only. Signing is just as well.
copypaste: If I get a WoTchan working, I'll link it here.
mircea_popescu: did you read the part about fuck the browser, also ?
copypaste: If I have I don't recall
mircea_popescu: <mircea_popescu> ideally you replace the browser entirely, also. run as a sort of torrent. <
mircea_popescu: just fork gnutella or whatever to serve as your basis. add a render engine, and you're g2g.
mircea_popescu: no longer need to host servers, bother with "laws" and similar bullshit. if people like your shit they'll run it.
copypaste: Not bad
mircea_popescu: if not, a well. less bw.
copypaste: Gnutella did work well
mircea_popescu: but you and the people who like it can STILL run it.
mircea_popescu: basically, the correct way to implement this, is to have a "universal" key and have people encrypt to whatever keys they want. if they include the universal, then it's public. if they don't, then only whoever they encrypted to can see it.
mircea_popescu: and now V also becomes a chan soft.
deedbot-: accepted: 1
mircea_popescu: copypaste it'll take a while to implement, you'll have to pull in gpg too, and some other shit. but once done it does obsolete current chanology. i can't conceive who or how could run a chan anymore on anything else.
copypaste: I especially like the part about no centralized hosting
copypaste: I have a friend who is now working for fluffypony and Monero on adding I2P to that coin (perhaps the work is already finished)
mircea_popescu: it's really not THAT hard to do, in the sense that all the needed parts already exist, even if not perfect.
mircea_popescu: so it's not one of those "shit me a micron" sort of jobs.
copypaste: But before he was doing that, he was making a distributed chan using the NNTP protocol and Tor/I2P
fluffypony: copypaste: psi?

mircea_popescu: i really don't blame the kids themselves, they're being raped under the guise of education, and in two major ways : one to create a wholly delusional concept of "originality" which is so badly wound up in self-contradiction it causes most brains to shut down ; the other is more pervasive, they are prevented from socialising normally in a myriad ways and as such become incapable to work with others.
mircea_popescu: while these idiocies may well serve societal and political goals of wrinkled up old women / usg, they have no room in the world.
ascii_butugychag: i'm not seeing #2
ascii_butugychag: they socialize very, very well
ascii_butugychag: too well.

ascii_butugychag: but ~inside the leprosorium~ yes
mircea_popescu: they can't go to a random bar, they can't talk to random people.
mircea_popescu: socialisation is an ability to interact with the other , not an ability to tolerate the boring.
ascii_butugychag: but the latter is precisely what happens in 'random bar with random people'
ascii_butugychag: tolerate the boring.

mircea_popescu: a punk is, of course, the eromenos in the typical pressure-driven homosexual relationships they engage in. a hooker's not the same as a harlot and so on and so forth
phf: yeah, i'm lost with the terminology. my view into the lazy world is through hipster bums, like crust punks and gypsters, and they are not very precise with their terminolgoy, or else they latch on to some word and aggressively use it to self identify
punkman: what's below the bum?
mircea_popescu: well... you know, random technician in factory may well not know wtf he's doing also.
mircea_popescu: punkman the bum is not violent. generally "below" would go towards more violence.
mircea_popescu: a knave, well antiquated by now, would technically denote a "child of better means who is now destitute and agressive out of survived entitlement". a word lafond's looking for.
ascii_butugychag: violent man is.. not yet ~spent~. bum - is spent.
mircea_popescu: there is some merit in this.
mircea_popescu: female side is similar. whore is just that, end of road. hooker tries to grab you with a well placed line, still has that much fight left in her.

ascii_butugychag: mircea_popescu: 'life on earth' is not an instrument, i don't push buttons on it and expect a timely response
mircea_popescu: "Then knowledgeable people complain that the evil financial network is heading for disaster, that the government sponsored enterprises are about to cause a "collapse of the total financial system", as Wallison and Alan Greenspan complained in 2005, the government debates shrinking the evil government sponsored enterprises, as with "S. 190 [109th]: Federal Housing Enterprise Regulatory Reform Act of 2005" but they find
mircea_popescu: easy money too seductive, and S. 190 goes down in flames before a horde of political activists chanting that easy money is sound, and opposing it is racist, nazi, ignorant, and generally hateful, the recent S. 190 debate on limiting portfolios (bond issue supporting dud mortgages) by government sponsored enterprises being a perfect reprise of the debates on limiting the issue of new assignats in the 1790s."
mircea_popescu: ascii_butugychag neither is bitcoin.
mircea_popescu: your "push button, i matter" mental model is only applicable here inasmuch as you're hypocritical enough to go "i planted tree, and got an apple, therefore am in control" sorta thing.
copypaste: mircea_popescu: i've heard some saying that miners won't "allow" the halving to occur because they would never "vote for" something so against their "best interest"...these people don't understand the social contract behind bitcoin of course, or even that miners don't vote on anything but who gets 25BTC
mircea_popescu: otherwise... no. zero control and no buttons.
mircea_popescu: copypaste no, "these people" who aren't in any sort of sense people are merely laying the ground work for "the next battle", as they perceive the string of endless humiliations and buttrapes they receive.

mircea_popescu: incidentally, anyone find it odd that the best way to "increase thoroughput", which is clean, safe and above all ecological (in that it brings the halvings closer) would actually be to re-set the time between blocks to something like 4-5 minutes ?
mircea_popescu: somehow that's the one hardfork nobody thought to mention.

mircea_popescu: taking it from 6 to 5 not only gives you a cheap 20% boost of thoroughput, but also significantly reduces the "probability to wait 1 hr for txn inclusion". by about 60% or so.

It's a useless gesture unless there is a factory of fresh asic chips rolling off the production line in anticipation of the new POW and/or there is a large chunk of the Bitcoin economy that is willing to completely abandon the larger block chain.
mircea_popescu: The human incentive to adopt this chain would be incredibly low though as everyone has GregCoins now and any exchange that decides to allow arbitrage between the two chains is going to see huge dumps onto the GregCoin chain which will quickly obliterate the price. Why? Because the very large majority that own Bitcoins want the blocksize to increase. I will also happily flush my GregCoins the instant some stupid schmuck

mircea_popescu: stamps are also "a real thing". original ponzi was a stamps deal.
SamPatt: Ponzi schemes are just fraud, there's nothing of value being done. What I'm trying to get across is that with Bitcoin something of value is actually happening (transactions).
mircea_popescu: anyway, you have more patience than i do, the nth bhagwan chowdhry is really no different from the n-1th
mircea_popescu: SamPatt transactions also happened with the original ponzi.
SamPatt: Only transactions relating to the scheme, correct? Perhaps I'm not familiar with the original scheme itself, but as Ponzi scheme is regularly defined today it's just taking in new money to give returns to older players. There's no transactions occurring except to continue this fraud.
mircea_popescu: but those are in point of fact transactions.
mircea_popescu: you know the excellent "Color of bits" essay ?
SamPatt: Unless he's proposing that all Bitcoin transactions are only being done to perpetuate further fraud then it's not a ponzi. Since I use Bitcoin for transactions that are for other purposes, it's clearly not ponzi

mircea_popescu: (in the other view : all currency is always and necessarily a ponzi scheme. and "fraudulent" in a sense.)
mircea_popescu: arguing with some idiot that said "bitcoin is a ponzi scheme" is a waste of time. the relevant point is that Bitcoin is less of a ponzi scheme than the us dollar is.

asciilifeform: it is entirely, thoroughly The Wrong Thing
asciilifeform: and is responsible for many of the present woes.
punkman: suppose I have two dozen nodes on dynamic IP
asciilifeform: the ~correct~ behaviour for a node is to service a hand-picked set of trusted peers
asciilifeform: AND OPTIONALLY - as resources are available - folks who knock on the door.
asciilifeform: IN THAT ORDER.

asciilifeform: so i will review, for the benefit of non-panzers, the current state
asciilifeform: presently trb does not have this sane behaviour
asciilifeform: it can run in one of two modes, '-connect' where it services a fixed list of peers, AND NOBODY ELSE (no incoming tcp)
asciilifeform: or '-addnode' where it takes a list of peers but 'as mere suggestions' and will happily drop'em, and connect to random derps
asciilifeform: the first mode can be disregarded as it does not result in a public node. it is useful for running hotwallets on your own lan, for running mircea_popescu-style 'dark' nodes over ad hoc vpn with kim jong il, etc.
asciilifeform: the second mode is what all of my trb boxen are set to, and it results in a comedy where the thing routinely drops friends on the floor and dallies about attempting to connect to randomly-selected derp ips
mircea_popescu: prolly next to fix huh
mircea_popescu: tho it's tangled with the whole mempool priority thing
ben_vulpes: tangled how?
asciilifeform: not really, no
mircea_popescu: how do you know how to value "others"
asciilifeform: they rank STRICTLY below hand-picked peers.
mircea_popescu: among themselves i mean.
asciilifeform: i am contemplating a strictly 2-tiered hierarchy here.
mircea_popescu: and how much is "strictly" in integers
mircea_popescu: seems to me if gonna do it might as well do it once, but anyway.
asciilifeform: 'strictly' means that door-knockers get serviced ONLY when friends are idle.
asciilifeform: i've held off attempting to do anything about this because 'usg can diddle packets arbitrarily, we need gossipd' but there is no particular logic to this.
mircea_popescu: this will never occur.
mircea_popescu: think of how the mempool flows
asciilifeform: gotta quantize the processing.
asciilifeform: i.e. meter resource consumption per peer.
asciilifeform: stray dogs ought to get the crumbs off the table.
thestringpuller: looks like trb will have gossipd support?
asciilifeform: what was the mircea_popescu piece, 'carnita, lu' fetita, si osoiul, lu' baboiul'

assbot: Taraf de Haïdouks - "Clejani Love Song" - YouTube ... ( )
thestringpuller: is there no manual approach for this process yet? i.e. people sign/deed node ip address. you use -connect flag
asciilifeform: and i dare say that this will become more apparent as 'axe time, sword time' carries on
thestringpuller: -connect/-addnode should make those peers the priority first and drop other nodes second

asciilifeform: one of which is a frightening industrial thing that takes 'ammo' and is plumbed straight into the standpipe
asciilifeform: (you load it like a cannon)
asciilifeform: the rest are 'artisanal' kettles of various shapes and types, much glass, many small parts
ben_vulpes: you guys live in fucking zimbabwe
ben_vulpes: there is no artisanal anything, there are just a bunch of hipsters competing to roast beans well
