asciilifeform: it is why i settled on straight gnudiff instead of trying 'clever' things
mircea_popescu: turing complete diff ?!
mircea_popescu: what's the diff if loop ?
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: this is a continuation of a thread almost as old as 'v' - consider the tinyscheme-genesis patch, shiva, and the 'pedigree bridge'
asciilifeform: we have this atrocity because gnudiff is incapable of renaming a directory without MORONICALLY --- -ing EVERY FUCKING LINE of every file and +++ -ing it in again
asciilifeform: likewise file deletions
mircea_popescu: no argument there.,
asciilifeform: and more generally, unix 'patch' output was not really designed for human eyes
asciilifeform: nor was the thing in any sense designed at all, really.
asciilifeform: just grew, like fungus.
asciilifeform: like most open sores crud.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: if this was not clear, there is not presently any such thing as turing-complete diff/patch
asciilifeform: but it is one of the things that must come to exist, for sanity.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform> nor was the thing in any sense designed at all, really. << quite very much this.
mircea_popescu: i just don't see the gap between "cleanly covers corner cases" and "is turing complete" bridged.
asciilifeform: because 'cover corner cases' through 'enumerated' is braindamage.
mircea_popescu: you can't put a kernel in every single thing including the diff utility!
asciilifeform: no kernel, just a little scheme interpreter.
mircea_popescu: ah that's what you had in mind.
asciilifeform: could've guessed, aha ?
mircea_popescu: listen, if you say "diff should parse scheme" instead of "diff should be turing complete" people'd follow a lot easier.
mircea_popescu: i for instance judged that since you DON'T say the obvious, you specifically do not mean the obvious.
mircea_popescu: why'd i guess like when talking to 16yos on saturday night ?
asciilifeform: well it technically doesn't have to be scheme. draft ver of 'p' for instance is more forth-like.
mircea_popescu: anyway, i can see it.
asciilifeform: 'v' as we have it now, or at least as it appeared in my initial publication, was a very hasty and premature, wartime wunderwaffen thing
asciilifeform: it was really only half-gestated.
asciilifeform: the adult version as i envision it is much more like what is described above.

mircea_popescu: "The simplest way to generate a patch is to use ‘diff -Naur’ (see Tips for Patch Producers), but you might be able to reduce the size of the patch by renaming or removing some files before making the patch. If the older version of the package contains any files that the newer version does not, or if any files have been renamed between the two versions, make a list of rm and mv commands for the user to execute in th

asciilifeform: which is why turingcompletefinalsolution.
mircea_popescu: nor do we know the banal names of banal things until after we've made them, because unlike posterity, we don't have the advantage OF FUCKING SANE ANTECESSORS.
mircea_popescu: we're born of snails and other oratanii
asciilifeform: nobody said terraforming planets would be easy...
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform complete solutions are rarely best solutions tho. too heavy.
mircea_popescu: complete tank solution includes oil well.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: this is a misconception, in this case. weigh my tinyscheme vs gnudiff!
asciilifeform: any metric you like - lines, complexity, hours to read
asciilifeform: complete solution made from ~orthogonal pieces~ is the magic sword which weighs as a feather.

polarbeard: so I've been playing a bit with shiva, I'm developing a simple hook mechanism, here's a preview
assbot: shiva_hooks.patch · GitHub ... ( )
polarbeard: thoughts?
asciilifeform: polarbeard: why all the crud ?
asciilifeform: why reverse_in_place, mk_list, marshall, etc. in cpp ?
polarbeard: re: my patches, I'm trying to keep an up to date version of them on my github trb repo, wouldn't mind submitting to the ml if somebody asks
polarbeard: utility functions?
asciilifeform: these should be in scheme.
asciilifeform: everything that can be in scheme, MUST BE.
polarbeard: marshall should be in scheme?
asciilifeform: explain to me why it is even necessary.
polarbeard: CNode marshalling
asciilifeform: WHY
polarbeard: because I'm marshalling per value type, not per hook type
asciilifeform: shiva.cpp as i originally wrote it, includes all of the trb headers. you can form scheme data structures handily without engaging in weird cppisms, just by iterating over, e.g., the node list, and forming scheme list while you do it.
polarbeard: that's what I do
asciilifeform: and what is this ? >>
assbot: shiva_hooks.patch · GitHub ... ( )
polarbeard: I'm just encapsulating the functionality
asciilifeform: this is not an explanation.
polarbeard: that was a bug fix
asciilifeform: do you know what an explanation is ?
asciilifeform: WHAT BUG
asciilifeform: if you found an ACTUAL bug, that should be OWN PATCH.
polarbeard: this is not a vpatch, don't you see that?
asciilifeform: i do
asciilifeform: but it is also not an anything else.
asciilifeform: it is an example of everything i stand against.
polarbeard: so, what you're going to do with ts then?
asciilifeform: i did give example.
asciilifeform: for one thing, i won't be implementing list reversal in cpp !
asciilifeform: for another, bug fixes are their own patches, one per bug, that must contain nothing else.
polarbeard: I won't be adding unnecessary code to init.scm
asciilifeform: on the contrary, that is the ideal place for all new code pertaining to shiva.
asciilifeform: anything that is not going there, must answer why.
polarbeard: I'll split the bug fixes into their own vpatches when the time comes
asciilifeform: please do.
asciilifeform: these i will happily read, and sign.
polarbeard: atm I just wanted to dump what I'm working for, to get constructive feedback
asciilifeform: but doings in cpp what can be done inside tinyscheme, i will not.
asciilifeform: and i hope this is good feedback.
asciilifeform: see, the big thing here,
asciilifeform: is that by 'marshalling' the pointers, you are introducing trb's leakages into tinyscheme.
asciilifeform: (not to mention, bloating the code, but this is secondary)
asciilifeform: the point of shiva is PRECISELY the opposite
asciilifeform: 1) to have the cpp content of trb asymptotically go to ZERO with time
asciilifeform: 2) to THERMONUKE the idiot leaks.
polarbeard: never, I'm not translating trb to scheme
polarbeard: that's pointless and a waste of time
asciilifeform: nobody asked you to. but try also refrain from translating shiva to cpp, and spreading the leak metastases into it ?
polarbeard: so you embedded scheme for that reason?
asciilifeform: for the time being, with the more modest goal of abolishing the rpc module.
asciilifeform: but yes, in the long run it is intended as a prosthesis to take over where the brain damage of the original is incurable.
asciilifeform: (for n00bs or readers who have not been keeping up, 'shiva' is a highly experimental affair and not to be considered part of mainline trb!)
asciilifeform: and also in case polarbeard missed last night's thread,
asciilifeform: the magic of 'v' is that polarbeard does NOT have to agree with me!111
asciilifeform: he is free, and encouraged to, produce his own schismatic shiva, and sign it, and who knows, folks may come to prefer it to mine.
polarbeard: I agree with you on that
polarbeard: yes, I'm not surprised that you have a different point of view, and I'm even pleased I think
asciilifeform: from my naked eye reading, your thing will run until the first gc cycle.
asciilifeform: but i can't promise this, and can't be bothered to test, for reasons already described.
polarbeard: it actually stores the callbacks
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 10937 @ 0.000569 = 6.2232 BTC [-]
polarbeard: it works well, but still simple hooks because only a single callback may be registered per hook, not sure yet if there will be need for callback management

ben_vulpes: mod6: while there's no harm in checking the .sign, i don't know what it buys us
ben_vulpes: also that signature is disturbingly short
kakobrekla: really no saunas? whats the deal with that?

mod6: im gonna look again at what happens with 1.4.19 & that sign file.
phf: there's literally 4 places in the entire virgnia-connecticut stretch. maybe there's something up in Massachusetts. there's "east european" places ran by russians but with a lot of turks, etc. and then there's korean baths. but koreans frown on cold plunges, so they would usually have a tepid shower/pool
kakobrekla: im fine with shower only as long as you can set the temp to whatever you want
mod6: ok, so right, with 1.4.19 it has that WARNING at the end:
assbot: ... ( )
phf: yeah, korean places are not bad, but i know only of one that caters specifically to koreans (i.e. good heat), a lot of them are western oriented so massage and facials and such

mod6: sure sure.
mod6: just thinking that hey, cant hurt anything to enlighten the guy that these hashes that he's signing, even up to this current month are obsolete.
asciilifeform: obsolete?!
asciilifeform: what even is this
mod6: SHA1 & MD5 are broken are they not?
asciilifeform: ah this yes
asciilifeform: do we have a confirmed collision here ?!
asciilifeform: i.e. different sha512 but same sha1/md5 ?
mod6: anyway, an open line of comms to these folks could help us -- especially going forward as we basically might need to "roll our own" so that it doesn't pull the deps via rsync.
mod6: asciilifeform: not as far as i've seen.

asciilifeform: jurov: whatddyamean 'stop working' ?!
asciilifeform: as in, cosmic ray ?
asciilifeform: or did you... update the box.
jurov: gentoo, perl 5.20.2
jurov: i updated glibc with the patch
asciilifeform: aaaaah
jurov: for getname
asciilifeform: which patch ?
mod6: pwd is used iirc in, but only in the contex of it being a shell out - your environment should execute this and return the result to a scalar.
jurov: gethostbyname
asciilifeform: well yes
asciilifeform: but ~which patch~
mod6: fork() shoudn't even be a consideration here... im confused.
phf: yeesh, when shiva fails to read init.scm it kills the whole bitcoind there and then
asciilifeform: phf: kills how ?
jurov: mod6 `pwd` call subprocess
jurov: hence, fork
phf: Shiva: new session, connected from
phf: libc++abi.dylib: terminating with uncaught exception of type std::runtime_error: Shiva: failed to read init file!
phf: run: line 4: 67621 Abort trap: 6
mod6: perl doesn't care about what subprocesses a unix command may or may not use tho.
asciilifeform: phf: and this is the correct behaviour (IF SHIVA IS ENABLED), just needs to happen cleanly and humanely. does it ?
asciilifeform: ah this is CORRECT phf.
jurov: asciilifeform: how do i list patches that went into glibc-2.22-r2 ?
mod6: it'd be like doing the same thing in a bash script: PWD=`pwd`; echo $PWD;
phf: oh i agree, it should kill, just not without prejudice
phf: (i.e. no reason to corrupt db in the process)
asciilifeform: jurov: look in the portage cache, possibly. but you might have to diff with previous.
mod6: jurov: fwiw, i do a huge % of testing on a gentoo env with perl 5.20...
asciilifeform: phf: possibly it ought to die before the db is opened.
mod6: v5.20.2 for x86_64-linux

asciilifeform: i have nfi
jurov: not entire. just occassional problems with perl scripts like and autotools
mod6: but i thought you said that `ls` and `pwd` didn't work, like in your shell. that shouldn't have anything to do with perl.
mod6: my mind is blown. these are C binaries.
jurov: but perl failed to execue them!
jurov: most perl scripts meddle with $SIG so they worked fine
mod6: but, say, normal use; you log in, you get a shell, you type `ls` and that would just work as expected right?
jurov: yes, everything worked. except perl -e "print system('ls') or die $!" returned just -1
mod6: ahhhh
mod6: ok.
mod6: then that makes a bit more sense.
mod6: maybe i should rewrite V in C
jurov: as i said, don't mind. it's my problem, i should not avoid dubious USE flags

mircea_popescu: there's nothing wrong with treating your baby as a chunk of bedrock, you know.
ben_vulpes: what even was the point of the schemehooks?
mircea_popescu: tied some ropes to it and pulling on them, technically yes "this pulls the earth the wrong way". practically, tis alpinism.

mircea_popescu: what [i believe] you have in mind when ytou say "tc" in thsi context is pointedly not what most anyone reading it would expect it to mean.
asciilifeform: it means what everybody's kindergarten textbook had it mean!11
mircea_popescu: but a very... haskellite, even, theoretical notion.
asciilifeform: how?
asciilifeform: all i ask for is that vtron be able to specify arbitrary transformations, e.g., 'replace every letter a with b', rather than the +++/--- imbecility.
mircea_popescu: in that it's "turing complete in a purely theoretical sense and with none of the practical overhead a practical implementation would imply except in those cases where it is clearly and truly needed".
jurov: ^yes i was hinting at this too
asciilifeform: i suppose, like every other time before, i am doomed to demonstrate ~by example~...
mircea_popescu: in this sense cunt is turing complete, it can express all proteins.
mircea_popescu: good luck getting the fps to do so, however.
phf: i think the idea is to have a slightly more constrained awk. patchmachine takes string, manipulates it, returns new string
mircea_popescu: phf my mental model is essentially "awk without regexp"

jurov: no the ide was patchmachine takes *filesystem* and ditto

jurov: *idea
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform what other than regexp do you hate in awk ? and being gnucpp, of course.\

asciilifeform: no lambda.

mircea_popescu: ok, you know, say that! "i want a homoiconic thing with lambda", rather than "tc"

assbot: Logged on 21-02-2016 15:48:49; mircea_popescu: listen, if you say "diff should parse scheme" instead of "diff should be turing complete" people'd follow a lot easier.
asciilifeform: anyway if i already knew what this needs to look like, i'd have already written it.
mircea_popescu: obviously.
asciilifeform: it needs to come out of the 'resistance of the medium' from the sort of thing we find ourselves doing with regularity.
mircea_popescu: which is why one'd expect a lot more alma matering of stuff like polarbeard's.
mircea_popescu: he's bound to run into a shitton of resistance of the medium in short order with that thing.
asciilifeform: if only it were so simple. do you notice what most programming types do when they run into a forest ?
asciilifeform: they build bulldozer, drive right through the oaks.
mircea_popescu: aha.
jurov: maybe we'll end up with vtron that actually allow to implement source code parser inside vpatches so that it computes checksums for every function

mircea_popescu: maybe we could name it php!

asciilifeform: what of it.
mircea_popescu: jurov> someone inewitably will try it anyway. and i wish to see your face upon seeing vpatch with embedded cpptron <<< abhahaha win
jurov: actually, that's logical conclusion of what you want. instead of "teh stupid +++ --- stuff" make c++ parser, apply a transform and generate code
asciilifeform: jurov: do you know why not ?
asciilifeform: because it is HEAVY
asciilifeform: remember 'fits in head' ?
jurov: arbitrary text transformations like you dream of do not fit in head
asciilifeform: sure they do.
asciilifeform: tinyscheme fits in head.
asciilifeform: and it can do it.
asciilifeform: and it isn't even as slim as it could be.
jurov: then it couild also parse c++
jurov: it's arbitrary text transformation, too
asciilifeform: jurov: you are welcome to try parsing cpp, it would be a pretty useful proggy incidentally
asciilifeform: but the last time i asked for one, no one found any other than 'clang'.
asciilifeform: the language is gargantuan, just enough parser to ~compile~ is likely to take you a decade to write.
asciilifeform: and no one will read.

mircea_popescu: aha.
mircea_popescu: that would be the one problem - the thing is a very valuable security asset, should be better protected.
mircea_popescu: make a 4kb key and use it rather than the strange md5 lists or what's that.
asciilifeform: Jacmet: as you probably know, buildroot is a coveted boobytrap target for 1,001 miscreants of various stripes.
Jacmet: mircea_popescu: true. I'll get the new key cross signed by the other devs at our next dev days and start using it

mircea_popescu: and in unrelated news, do you take bitcoin donations Jacmet ?
Jacmet: mircea_popescu: I guess we could, but it has never come up so far
asciilifeform: Jacmet: the background: i originally picked up buildroot to do an arm system build for an obscure box. and then discovered that it is also the only practical means of compiling with musl instead of glibc, for any system
asciilifeform: and here we are.
mircea_popescu: so get that sane key made, reg it and sign an address, i'll send you a coin.
Jacmet: mircea_popescu: we're currently setting up a non profit organization around buildroot
mircea_popescu: that's a horrible idea if the wya such things work out in practice is any guide.
Jacmet: asciilifeform: ok

ben_vulpes: Jacmet: another thing worth pointing out are that sha1 and md5 are obsolete
Jacmet: ben_vulpes: yes, the key is from 2009 or so, where those were the defaults
ben_vulpes: whats the connection between key and file hash algos?
asciilifeform: Jacmet: if you open a nonprofit org, esp. in usa, you will be surrounding yourself with, and eventually giving control over various aspects of the project, to people who do not work in good faith.

mircea_popescu: asciilifeform for the record this " the reason that source access is needed is the same as the cause of the problem: the inability to modify system behavior non-intrusively. if one could modify OPEN on any given system to acquire new behavior _without_ compiling a new OPEN or, even if you did, without re-linking the entire system (thus the need for dynamic linking and similar solutions, too), source code access would
mircea_popescu: be entirely immaterial." is rank idiocy.
mircea_popescu: he is correct in that foss is mostly a problem unto itself, making the previous situation worse rather than better.
asciilifeform: it is only possible to understand what naggum said if one is familiar with clos.
mircea_popescu: nevertheless, the "solution" he contemplates is of the level of "because inept us-style corporatism displays all the sechelae you'd expect if you got a bunch of farmers to say how cars should look, let's everyone run in traffic!"
mircea_popescu: i do not WISH to run an "open" which may acquire unspecified powers in the future if the caller rubs its belly just right.
mircea_popescu: the principal specification of any machine, not JUST computers, not just software stacks, not just lines of code, is to specify what it can never do.
asciilifeform: naggum also suffered from a kind of garden of eden innocence in re: that he never once showed any sign of understanding sabotage

asciilifeform: how so?
mircea_popescu: how so. how the fuck are you EVER going to sign off on any code when it is not possible to say what function call will never do ?
asciilifeform: this 'never do' exists only if you burn into rom and then pour concrete around it.
mircea_popescu: currently our substance is drawn specifically from the fact that for the past 2-3 decades, these twerps approached the problem of functionality ("the software doesn't do enough") with nary a clue about the problem of feedback ("the software does too much")
asciilifeform: otherwise you might cat /dev/random > /dev/mem

mircea_popescu: asciilifeform the sufficient and necessary concrete is readily available and of an abstract kind. i needn't any actual calcium carbonate to say various things about various bits of code.
asciilifeform: but you do.
mircea_popescu: i just mark it as broken.
mircea_popescu: as for instance with openssl above.
asciilifeform: the promises made by a c machine are false promises.
asciilifeform: and certainly not protocol.
mircea_popescu: this is a separate problem.
mircea_popescu: that the concept is poorly implemented is a separable and in fact separate problem from that the concept is broken
asciilifeform: these are not actually separate, causally
mircea_popescu: we had a few threads about this. i suppose it's still an open q.
asciilifeform: c machine is an exquisite study in what 'broken concept' actually means in practice.

assbot: Logged on 21-02-2016 19:08:14; phf: as soon as i can move again, i'm going to make it to russian&turkish baths in nyc. they don't really do saunas on the east coast, but that baths place is awesome
JuliaTourianski_: I like the fulton st bathhouse in nyc (amazing food), and this one nice atmosphere, oldschool family run
assbot: 010813rtbh ... ( )
JuliaTourianski_: they gave me a discount cuz I'm a fellow owner
mircea_popescu: eh girls get discounts everywhere nudity's even vaguely involved.
JuliaTourianski_: not true. the unisex nude on in san fran gave me no discount
mircea_popescu: wrong kinda girl. shoulda been gay.
JuliaTourianski_: all girls are gay
JuliaTourianski_: if they so choose
mircea_popescu: alright, i give, i got nothing.
phf: of course, i'm always interested in new sauna places
JuliaTourianski_: ur euro born right
phf: yes, russian
JuliaTourianski_: Ive been to bathhouses all over
phf: i prefer contrast baths, hot bath, cold plunge, but yeah i've been to all kinds
JuliaTourianski_: in turkey, we were walking round hoping to go to a hamam the next day..when we saw steam rising from one of the buildings...we inquired to find the oldest haman of turkey! it was amazing. they scrubbed me down so hard. and they giggled at my shyness.
JuliaTourianski_: hammam*
mircea_popescu: pretty cool.
phf: is that the one that's few blocks away from hagia sophia?
JuliaTourianski_: couldnt tell u
mircea_popescu: should be.
JuliaTourianski_: the general rule is...the more expensive a bathhouse is, the less authentic cuz only white tourists would pay that much to bathe...
mircea_popescu: JuliaTourianski_ did you get that gaming system made ?
JuliaTourianski_: yes. waiting for new monitor
JuliaTourianski_: but has not filled my order for days...
mircea_popescu: the girl/boy ratio in eulora is starting to skew the wrong way!
phf: i've noticed that, there's a place right between the sophia and blue mosque, that's all turist.
JuliaTourianski_: so why is eulora different than minecraft
mircea_popescu: minecraft just creates shit out of thin air neh ?
JuliaTourianski_: am i masculine cuz i was addicted to minecraft or feminine because i built a kitchen
mircea_popescu: you're gay for caring!
JuliaTourianski_: so ghay
danielpbarron: minecraft is way more focused on sandboxing
mircea_popescu: danielpbarron i never played it, but is it inflationary ?
danielpbarron: very
JuliaTourianski_: do i have to give mp money to have fun in eulora
mircea_popescu: well then that's the difference.
mircea_popescu: JuliaTourianski_ nah atm noobs are making a pretty penny mining.
JuliaTourianski_: ill give it a shot once my monitor happens
danielpbarron: i used to play on a hardcore pvp server that had a decent economy (for minecraft) and they would have to periodically reset the whole world
mircea_popescu: weren't ppls bitching that went scam or was that a different thing
mircea_popescu: danielpbarron that's just fucking ridoinculous.
JuliaTourianski_: not yet
phf: danielpbarron: wait, fullton street in nyc?
danielpbarron: ya
phf: interesting, i've not been to that one
JuliaTourianski_: great food
danielpbarron: i pulled off some pretty cool raids on that minecraft server; the guy who made it coded this thing you could build out of expensive parts that would like you track down where people were if they stood in one place too long (usually building their big stupid elaborate base)
mircea_popescu: butthurt ensues ?
danielpbarron: got to the point i built a tracker so big i could scan the whole map using binary substitution, and just collected and sold coordinates to other people
mircea_popescu: lol
phf: the one on second ave has pretty good food, but it's really just one guy cooking it. this wallstreetspa place seems like they might have a cook
JuliaTourianski_: mircea_popescu what do u think of physicals
mircea_popescu: what are those ?
JuliaTourianski_: physical bitcoin
mircea_popescu: i never cared, myself. nubbins` is the resident expert really.
assbot: Blog « Photography, Illustration & Creative Retouching – Portfolio of Maxfield Mellenbruch ... ( )
mircea_popescu: lol i didn't know you were an artist.
mircea_popescu: !rated JuliaTourianski_
assbot: You rated user JuliaTourianski_ on 22-Sep-2014, with a rating of 1, and supplied these additional notes: Manages the beer for a family owned Russian bathouse with handmage sausages in Mississauga..
mircea_popescu: ha. voice yourself wouldja.
danielpbarron: the thing with "load your own key" physicals is it defeats at least some of the purpose
ben_vulpes: (hi trinque!)
danielpbarron: although i'm with nubbins` on the whole gpg chain of ownership method
danielpbarron: bitcoin can never exist strictly as a physical token; there needs to be some sort of bank-like entity to put a name on it
asciilifeform: to the extent 'physical coin' is a mechanism for storing actual coin, vs mere decoration, it is a Bad Idea.
mircea_popescu: seems to me rather obvious these are intended as decorative accessories.
mircea_popescu: i can see what the girls are trying to do. it's nb.
phf: seems like it would appeal to the same "commemorative" crowd as in fiat
mircea_popescu: phf no, it's the porsche for a new generation. tho i'm unsure whether anyone here understands or cares to think about what those things ~are~.
ben_vulpes: v. cool, phf.
ben_vulpes: (swank, that is)
ben_vulpes: (swanky, one might say)
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: waiwut
mircea_popescu: better questions!
asciilifeform: what they are
asciilifeform: .
mircea_popescu: lol ?
asciilifeform: 'veblen good' ?
mircea_popescu: not exactly\
mircea_popescu: let's go at it this way : ever seen how much bums value cell phones ?
asciilifeform: have seen the abstract fact of bum with phone, yes
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 30750 @ 0.00057405 = 17.652 BTC [+]
punkman: danielpbarron: bitcoin can never exist strictly as a physical token; there needs to be some sort of bank-like entity to put a name on it << the keys are always stored on physical tokens. unless you have a brainwallet (and the mind-reading machine has not been invented yet).
ben_vulpes: this is an implementation detail, punkman
danielpbarron: yeah but you don't usually pass around private keys like bank notes
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform but the value of the phone for the bum is unrelated to its utility.
mircea_popescu: for one thing - who the fuck is he going to call ? for the other - how is he going to even get it to work ? for yet another, it matters not so much if the thing even works in the first place.
mircea_popescu: now - why is this ?
asciilifeform: i can see it.
danielpbarron: it sorta works with cacasius coins -- the ones that ~he~ loaded. But if each identical looking token is supposed to be loaded by a different entity, there can be no illusion of fungibility between them
mircea_popescu: note that i picked the bum specifically. for derps in "secure neighbourhoods", showing off to the neighbour is arguably a +ev move. who knows, maybe neighbour's daughter comes to do your house work in the nude or something. as faint as it may be - you're not going to get in fucking trouble for being an asshole. not so for bum. for bum, veblen goods are suicide goods.
mircea_popescu: so then what gives ?
asciilifeform: he puts on the play for himself?
asciilifeform: 'i'm still someone'
mircea_popescu: look at "european cars", they've been selling the same damned thing for 30 years now. you ever watch one of their ads ?
mircea_popescu: there's a naked woman in a fur and a shot of some shiny cogs working together.
mircea_popescu: that's all it's been throughout.
mircea_popescu: and they're not pitching to people who could buy the damned cars, but to twentysomething derps in college.
mircea_popescu: fact of the matter is, when it comes to technology we're all bums. nobody can make a fucking car he'd want to drive.
asciilifeform: so that they buy as soon as they are credit-enabled?
mircea_popescu: and this is EXACTLY what elegance is. no fucking farmer in the midwest, building an empire and about to kick the fuherer's teeth in can POSSIBLY be elegant.
mircea_popescu: elegance is specifically the scent of early putrefaction.
mircea_popescu: hence new york was elegant in 1920, by the time it was just starting to no longer matter,
mircea_popescu: not in 1820 when it was kicking pensylvania's teeth in.
mircea_popescu: look at the item in question, it's faintly cog-like, and mysteriously made of parts bla bla. same exact play, for same exact reason.
mircea_popescu: all they need is some sluts in furs smoking out of hookas or some shit.
mircea_popescu: !up JuliaTourianski_
mircea_popescu: didja pm it !up ?
JuliaTourianski_: for elegance to exist it needs elegant people
mircea_popescu: what's that, women that never queef and dudes that don't go bald ?
phf: andy warhol's gay entourage
JuliaTourianski_: regarding the kialaras... they're pretty pieces of art (which by wilde's definition is valuable in it of itself) plus they have the btc behind them, so they're an investment.
mircea_popescu: see ? she gets it.
mircea_popescu: they're valuable in themselves plus they make a good investment. furs ftw.
mircea_popescu: anyone seen Les Veinards btw ?
JuliaTourianski_: wats that
mircea_popescu: splendid bit in there, right in the final sketch, de funes is this breton dude. "ils m'ont liquide!"
JuliaTourianski_: im writing a post called "It's not that there's no jobs, it's that your standards are too high. "
punkman: I like the Kialara coins, certainly different than all the other crap coins. but why would I buy one signed by Ricky Allman or JuliaTourianski? did you do the art on the back side?
JuliaTourianski_: yes
