mircea_popescu: sooo, freenode is patently going to shit. their dns round robin list is about half as long as it used to be, with stuff in the same subnet even, never seen before. and half the shit dun work, like say 185.30.166/24
mircea_popescu: possibly why deedbot's gone, also.
mircea_popescu: i'm guessing we'll see the end of it soon enough at this rate.
mircea_popescu: anyway, ima be off to bed. laters.

PeterL: shinohai: I'll probably rerate when he stops drinking the Pb Waterz of Detroit.
PeterL: or 100 km for you metric-usnig folk, that's actually a nicer number, I should have started with that.

asciilifeform: funny how folks remain interested, somehow, in this number, though it comes from the heathens.
asciilifeform: and for all i know, is fictional entirely
PeterL: do you have a better source?
asciilifeform: not only do i not,
asciilifeform: but there is (nor ever likely to be) a fiatola-btc exchange in wot
PeterL: too bad -otc died
asciilifeform: but that changes nothing.
asciilifeform: was it even alive?
PeterL: not sure, maybe sorta before my time here?
asciilifeform: i have nfi
asciilifeform did try to use otc on numerous occasions, never once made the desired deal. but - must note - was trying to purchase rarities.
asciilifeform: the closest i ever came was when nubbins took up my offer re the btc src b00k
asciilifeform: ;;later tell danielpbarron http://btcbase.org/log/2016-04-17#1453171 << you can have however many i have here or any subset for the cost of shipping - and i think i now have all of the remaining ones.

gribble: The operation succeeded.
danielpbarron: yeah that was the deal i had with nubbins: a couple shirts for cost of shipping, and i paid for it before you had even expressed interest
danielpbarron: asciilifeform, gimme a quote on a small box of them, like a dozen or so
danielpbarron: regarding -otc, i made several thousands of dollars worth of trades through there, but in retrospect i think i just got lucky that none of them went sour
danielpbarron: one of the guys i dealt with ended up flipping out over nothing and has been recently nagging me in private messages asking for copies of our signed contracts
PeterL: is trading over -otc really comparable to trading over an exchange? seems like the exchange is much more usefull for generating a spot price?
PeterL: danielpbarron: were any of your trades at prices different from the current exchange price?
danielpbarron: yeah, i usually paid a premium
asciilifeform: danielpbarron: i cannot answer for nubs. but afaik i have all of the remaining shirts here, and very little use for them currently.
asciilifeform: presently i intend to pass them out at next trilema-conf, whenever that is.
asciilifeform: and/or wrap cardanos in them.
asciilifeform: i still have even a few from the original crate!
asciilifeform: http://btcbase.org/log/2016-04-17#1453196 << i will weigh them next chance i get and report back

mircea_popescu: hhhola!
jurov: davout the addy is here: http://thebitcoin.foundation/treasurer_contract.html
asciilifeform: hola seƱor popescu..!
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i read this http://trilema.com/2009/sfarsitul-lumii and it reminded me of the other, more recent trilema article re: the drowned nyc vault with the trillion in paperz
mircea_popescu: haha remember that ? epic shit.
mircea_popescu: "oh we lost some trillions of... copies of... some papers we printed. problem ?"
asciilifeform: i have actually nfi, but at the time i could not help but wonder how much of the jpmization of american bankz was engineered via precisely that kind of 'physical jubilee'
mircea_popescu: certainly all of it.
asciilifeform: 'oops we rm -rf / 'd the capital allocationz. all mine now'
mircea_popescu: can't have central planning without "anti money laundering"
mircea_popescu: soviets know.
asciilifeform: and certainly every orcish pesthole where they ever burned a gestapo archive with stoolie idents, knows.
mircea_popescu: PeterL> http://btcbase.org/log/2016-04-16#1452858 << The Pb waters are in Flint, 60 miles north of Detroit, and I live in neither, I live another 60 miles north of that << distance is not the relevant criteria. height is. are you upstream or downstream lol
a111: Logged on 2016-04-16 00:50 shinohai: I'll probably rerate when he stops drinking the Pb Waterz of Detroit.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform> was it even alive? << yes. before i left, amusingly enough. i still have teh archivez somewhere, but we opted not to integrate 'em.
asciilifeform: i read some of the available material ( mircea_popescu must've posted it ?) but all i saw were btc-fiatola dealz
asciilifeform: ~nothing else
asciilifeform: (aside from sc4mz0r1ng attempts)
mircea_popescu: it was early tmsr, not even by that name, plus a lot of gunk.
asciilifeform: like the uranium, then, in the sea.
mircea_popescu: pretty much yeah.
mircea_popescu: in other lulz, should anyone care to see what a "full license" looks in the windows/www world, here you go : https://www.cryengine.com/get-cryengine/full-license
mircea_popescu: testimonials + client list + call to action for a shitty spamform. problem ?
asciilifeform: this is typical 'software industreeee'
asciilifeform: and the more rancid the beggar, the louder shakes the cup
mircea_popescu: it'd seem to my naive, unworldly eye that there's nothing below that ?
mircea_popescu: how are they going to make it even shittier ?
asciilifeform: nah it means same thing as manhole cover stamped 'sewer'
asciilifeform: ... that, unless you are a paid plumber, you do not ~want~ to open and see.
mircea_popescu: maybe next step in degeneracy is a page consisting of pictures of cats.
mircea_popescu: danielpbarron lmao don't tell me, the self-elected defender of public interest split with some spare change.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform> and/or wrap cardanos in them. << more or less was the original plan yeh. but don't be shy, give to friends.
mircea_popescu: http://btcbase.org/log/2016-04-17#1453211 << win.

mircea_popescu: tho, was it 1% or .1% ? iirc the latter neh ? someone hiked the tax 1000% last year ?!
mircea_popescu: fucking republic, tax goes up 10x, nobody as much as notices.
mircea_popescu: empire tries to get a pesky extra 1%, all hell breaks loose.
davout: i'm from socialist france, 1% sounds like a terrific deal
mircea_popescu: hey, no law against overpaying.
mircea_popescu: or against underpaying, come to think about it...
mircea_popescu: trinque here's a thought : would it be possible to have deedbot- (or i guess its successor) pm a link to whoever sent it a deed once that deed has been included in a block ?
mircea_popescu: obviously some assembly required, but it'd help loads.
mircea_popescu: doesn't even have to be pm, actually. could also say here, "hey X, your deed was notarized : url"
mircea_popescu: possibly better this way.
shinohai: http://btcbase.org/log/2016-04-17#1453160 <<< sadly, yes.
a111: Logged on 2016-04-17 08:17 mircea_popescu: sooo, freenode is patently going to shit. their dns round robin list is about half as long as it used to be, with stuff in the same subnet even, never seen before. and half the shit dun work, like say 185.30.166/24
phf: i've been nursing hangover all day, waking up every few hours to both my bouncer and my bot being down
phf: in fact nc -v chat.freenode.net 6667 from the bouncer host is giving me connection timeout, but this random connection works :o
mircea_popescu: phf aha it's been shit.
phf: i think i'm going to punt on bot fleet, and just focus on robust reconnect. worst thing is trying to powercycle a bot connection, while the room is spinning
mircea_popescu: bot fleet is not a bad idea but premature.
trinque: irc is terrible; I just told mine to kill itself and be restarted by runit when *anything* weird happens at all
trinque: seems to be working; I have the exceptions logged, so if there are any that are worth fixing in a smarter way I'll have that information.
trinque: but whether SSL took a shit or ping timed out or... really has no bearing on what I'm going to do next
trinque tips hat to erlang
mike_c: that bot is like blinding fast
mike_c: phf: what's the database name?
mike_c: need it to connect
phf: what database
mike_c: that feels like a trick question. the one with the ratings
mike_c: you gave me server, etc. but not DB name
trinque: you're drunk mike_c
trinque: I gave you that :P
mike_c: sweet jesus
phf: indeed
mike_c: in my log it says: "trinque: what's the database name?"
mike_c: I don't know what you guys are smoking
trinque: what
mike_c: :)
trinque: lol
mike_c: so, something that isn't there is 'last seen'
mike_c: which can be useful
trinque: yeah, prolly as a command too
mike_c: and 'registered', which is.. somewhat useful as well
mircea_popescu: trinque there's something very deeply wrong about a system in which "what happened" has no bearing on "what to do next".
trinque: probably terribly worded on my part.
trinque: all the condtions which result in losing my connection ought to be followed by re-establishing that connection
BingoBoingo prefers the days of epic netsplits to this bullshit
trinque: http://dpaste.com/25X3X3P.txt << meanwhile this is apparently what #freenode is for
asciilifeform: soo seems like fleas of fleanode are bitin' lately?
BingoBoingo: took hours for a reconnect to hit after the last time I was bumped off
asciilifeform: hours??
BingoBoingo: yes
phf: same with my bouncer, it's back up, but "chat.freenode.org" was giving me timeouts since about 1pm to 7pm EST
BingoBoingo: For reconnect roulette to hook a live freenode
asciilifeform: do you have a hardcoded x.fleanode or do you use the chat.fleanode.. randomizer ?
asciilifeform: ah
BingoBoingo: randomizer atm
phf: wolfe has always been pretty reliable, and i think that's where randomizer's been putting me
asciilifeform: chat.f is a screaming singlepointoffailure
asciilifeform: but whole thing is pretty rotten.
phf: http://btcbase.org/log/2016-04-15#1452694 << i reworked search a bit, it now has handy nav, shows 100 and lets you nav through the whole history
a111: Logged on 2016-04-15 16:03 mircea_popescu: phf a) can has 100 rather than 20 finds for search ? b) http://btcbase.org/log-search?q=moon&page=16 is last page notwithstanding that 16 * 20 !> 500
mircea_popescu: lovely.
mircea_popescu: did you try cabbage juice btw ?
mircea_popescu: trinque no i don't think YOU're the problem. i think ircd is the fucking problem.
mircea_popescu: or in the immortal words of gnny sgt hartmann, i had no idea they stacked shit this high!
trinque: yeah, no kidding.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: it isn't a tall pile of shit, by modern standards, but ~does~ feature ssltronics
asciilifeform: which handily suffices
asciilifeform: to drown in.
mircea_popescu: in this case the dns round robin went to shit i suspec.
asciilifeform: how does the chat.fn thing actually work?
asciilifeform: i was under the notion that it was a one specific box, which then redirects
mircea_popescu: i dunno, i don't use dns.
mircea_popescu: ah no, it's handled as a round robin. you ask for it, dns server gives you the least loaded ip
mircea_popescu: at least in theory. but then they went from 20ish entries to like 9.
phf: yeah if you do nc -v chat.freenode.org 6667 couple of times it gives you different ips
mircea_popescu: and something to interest the CA fans in the audience : http://trilema.com/2016/euloran-biology/#footnote_3_65938
mircea_popescu: o wow i suspect this means i wrote over 65k footnotes to date
