mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo i got some.
felipelalli: guys, have you seen this? https://www.sec.gov/comments/sr-batsbzx-2016-30/batsbzx201630-2.htm
felipelalli: this guy is from my city, unfortunately, what a shame.
felipelalli: I'd love to see something about this on Qntra.net, WOT:nonperson hahah :D
adlai: ask not what your qntra can read to you; ask what you can write for your qntra
BingoBoingo: $b 1
mircea_popescu: ;;later tell felipelalli so a) write it and b) stop leaving, this is intended for permanent residence not hit-and-run actions.
gribble: The operation succeeded.
mircea_popescu: and in other wtf, anglos write naTion and noTion but nevertheless say naSHion and noSHion. because NOT ONLY do they have the romanian t, and s, which they don't bother to write down, but they also do the t, -> s, conversion like a buncha southern idiot plainsdwellers. romanian also spells nation and notion, but reads it like orcs one removed, natzion, notzion. fucking welchers do it like orcs twice removed, sh directly.
shinohai: ;;later tell felipelalli I will write something up, but will require a donation of 0.05 BTC to my "get off my ass on a weekend" fund.
gribble: The operation succeeded.
mircea_popescu: (similarly argentines don't read ll/y properly, but as sh instead. hence /saˈkate la moˈʧiʃa/ instead of the god given /saˈkate la moˈʧiʎa/.)
mircea_popescu: and as phf can no doubt tell you, only orcs vocalize /ʎ/ as /ʃ/. and the worst kind, too.
thestringpuller: $s steemit
mod6: mornin' o/
asciilifeform: 'morning mod6
mod6: how goes?
asciilifeform: waking up.
mod6: ya me too
mod6: random roll on trilema landed me ohttp://trilema.com/2013/do-you-know-who-knows-everything-about-power-bitcoin-people/
mod6: kinda weird reading stuff you wrote 3 years ago. :]
mod6: by 'you', i mean me.
mircea_popescu: wait, you wrote it ?
mircea_popescu: ah teh convo. hehe
mircea_popescu: $up oama
deedbot: oama voiced for 30 minutes.
oama: lol, n-am mai citit trilema de-un car de ani așa că nu știu ce și cum
mircea_popescu: english bish!
oama: ie canal internațional?
a111: Logged on 2016-07-16 15:43 oama: ie canal internațional?
mircea_popescu: they do speak english in thailand amirite
oama: they speak thaiglish. which is like a totally different language
mircea_popescu: you should hear pinoy chix engage in their version of english.
oama: I wouldn't laugh! my english isn't the best out there so...
oama: better than thaiglish though
shinohai: Is that a genuine case made of *plastic* on that thing mircea_popescu ?
shinohai: "COLOCAR MAS DE UN METRO DE OBJETOS COMBUSTIBLE" <<< i kinda consider most plastic combustible
mircea_popescu: it is, yes.
mircea_popescu: cheap vinyl too.
mircea_popescu: not like you couldn't have proper thermoplastics if you wanted to. the old item foot for instance is quite resistent to heat.
shinohai: Ihave seen a few space heaters here with thermoplastic cases, but they seem reasonably robust.
mircea_popescu: well nobody forces you to use the wrong plastic for your application, you know.
shinohai: Look t the money we saved!
mircea_popescu: anyway. the item is made locally principally because i suspect it'd be illegal to ship internationally.
mircea_popescu: accidental protectionism.
shinohai: I am glad to own an actual "estufa" made of cast iron, which cheerfully warms the house with a log or three.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: no siliconoil radiators in ar ?
mircea_popescu: "mineral oil", afaik.
mircea_popescu: and yes, that's the correct solution if for entirely incomprehensible reason you absolutely must have electric space heater : submerge resistors in thermically heavy oil, ie, re-do the circulating water radiator under the new design constraints.
BingoBoingo: The trendy option here is electric heating element set under flooring in thinset mortar
BingoBoingo: low voltage of course
mircea_popescu: yeah, will eventually be bitcoin miner
BingoBoingo: Of course then will be placed in something more durable than thinset

ben_vulpes: asciilifeform: why not use a spaceball?
a111: Logged on 2016-07-15 17:31 asciilifeform: admittedly i want this for cad, rather than sierra gamez.
ben_vulpes: it is very well integrated with the major cad packages.
ben_vulpes: (it is a 6-dof input device)
ben_vulpes: my asciilifeform emulator says "because wasted time switching between mouse and spaceball!"
asciilifeform: http://btcbase.org/log/2016-07-17#1503930 << spaceball is not a precision instrument, i have one,it is only good for camera angle movement
a111: Logged on 2016-07-17 00:47 ben_vulpes: my asciilifeform emulator says "because wasted time switching between mouse and spaceball!"
ben_vulpes: what do you need the precision for?
asciilifeform: what is ben_vulpes drinking?
asciilifeform: it must be stronger than mine
ben_vulpes: i never ever used anything but geometric constraints when designing parts.
asciilifeform: i work in 2d on mm scale and move, rotate
mircea_popescu: actually a proper, accelerometer based, precision instrument (glove ?) as described here seems a required item, thinking about it.
mircea_popescu: nfi why it doesn't exist.
ben_vulpes: i still have nfi why you'd design in any way but parametrically.
ben_vulpes: "artisanally hand-carved pcbs!"
asciilifeform: http://btcbase.org/log/2016-07-17#1503942 << circuit is netlist, but part placement is not meaningfully automatable.

asciilifeform just saw a play about mary toft, the 'rabbit birthing woman'
asciilifeform: she is in the logz somewhere. 1720s.
asciilifeform: also the malbec in dc is made from used tyres, it must be

mircea_popescu: jesus this place is pitiful
mircea_popescu just walked out of "entertainment".
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform think of "glove" in the sense of, a cubic foot heavy box you stick hand into, move around
mircea_popescu: silicon oil!|
mircea_popescu: if properly made, can have mechanical resistence actually be meaningful (magnetic transmission)
BingoBoingo: "One spot that is getting more foot traffic than usual is the Jefferson County Jail, which is apparently an official in-game Pokestop, a place where players can gather items and catch Pokemon.
