boolcrap: guys, do you like funny things?
trinque: all these damn kids that can't handle their drugs these days
boolcrap: haha
boolcrap: maybe the dentist gave her too much
boolcrap: her parents must be proud, now they know how shes spending their hard earned money
boolcrap: stan why aren't you rich yet
trinque: prolly saw all that educational material on the superior black seed or w/e
trinque: the chick I mean!
boolcrap: black power.
boolcrap: that is what you learn in college now
trinque: cuckotronics 101
mircea_popescu: the idea college kids do it is so fucking 1980s
boolcrap: you mean its not like one giant frat party gang bang?
boolcrap: girls gone wild is a lie?
mircea_popescu: no, it's a production.
mircea_popescu: the one giant frat party gangbang was pre and immediately after cellphones.
boolcrap: well as long as i didnt miss out on it by not going to college
mircea_popescu: you know how it goes, if you're the kind to miss out on it you'd have missed out on it if you went to college just as well.
mircea_popescu: if not, not.
boolcrap: i think if i went to college now i would still miss out on it.
boolcrap: how do you get all the chicks, you just drive around in your beamer?
mircea_popescu: i dont drive
boolcrap: uber?
mircea_popescu: nah. i actually never tried uber so far.
boolcrap: do you have winter where you are?
boolcrap: whats the extreme low for the year?
mircea_popescu: sort-of. they think so, but meh. i've not yet seen frost.
mircea_popescu: maybe 9 or so
boolcrap: dam so
boolcrap: like all year
boolcrap: is strawberry season?
mircea_popescu: just about.
boolcrap: that is nice.
mircea_popescu: they sure have them on sale pretty much year round
asciilifeform: boolcrap: you can go from one end of mircea_popesculandia to another by cab for a few bux.
boolcrap: but then you can also commit suicide by stabbing yourself in the back
mircea_popescu: anyway, most often is "hey, come over, i want you to meet X".
mircea_popescu: wait, shit, this is actually on trilema already innit.
boolcrap: stan told me his favorite pickup line
boolcrap: "heres my dick, where do we go from here"
mircea_popescu: wait, stan picks up male coworkers ?
boolcrap: not that i know of
mircea_popescu: so then why'd he tell it to you ?
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform does this pass for trolling in your country ?
boolcrap: hahaha
boolcrap: what other fruit do you have down there
boolcrap: that i have not eaten
boolcrap: anything exotic ?
asciilifeform: boolcrap must also have weird dreams.
boolcrap: i really do.
mircea_popescu: wtf is "exotic"
boolcrap: i dont know like
boolcrap: stuff they dont have in america
mircea_popescu: this is america.
boolcrap: i thought it was a 3rd world banana republic
boolcrap: oh wait
boolcrap: ok its america.
asciilifeform: 'kokakola! sometimes - war!!111' (tm) (r) (rammstein)
mircea_popescu: anyway, they have the same fruits they have everywhere. papaya and apples and whatever the hell. cherries at two bucks a pound.
boolcrap: 2 bux a lb is really good
boolcrap: if i were to buy from "farmers market"
boolcrap: would be 5
boolcrap: we dont really get papaya here at all
mircea_popescu: chicks make some epic cherry pie. one inch of cherry matter in a thin pastry wrapping.
boolcrap: whipped cream?
mircea_popescu is kinda ruined for non-homemade pies now.
trinque: ever have some mascarpone along the bottom of the crust in a cherry pie?
trinque: goddamned excellent.
boolcrap: america is fucking shit for food
boolcrap: theres not a god dam place i can eat out
trinque: so cook
boolcrap: well there is one italian place
boolcrap: we do, we cook every night
boolcrap: but its nice to go out to eat every now and then
boolcrap: give the wife a break
trinque: eh, chick I'm seeing is thrilled when she makes something good
boolcrap: rofl
boolcrap: where do u live?
mircea_popescu: how often does she make bad shit ?
trinque: not very
boolcrap: if she makes something bad
trinque: runs as bad as could be better, but I like it
boolcrap: just throw it out and make her start over
trinque: boolcrap: houston
trinque: $up boolcrap
deedbot: boolcrap voiced for 30 minutes.
mircea_popescu: o you got back to texas ?
trinque: she'd throw it out before I said anything
trinque: I did
mircea_popescu: cool. does it disappoint ?
trinque: nah, 'tis home
mircea_popescu: even better then.
boolcrap: yeah its hard to get a good wife
boolcrap: in america
boolcrap: maybe its all the opression thats going on
mircea_popescu: unlike where ?
boolcrap: other countries
boolcrap: like romania
trinque: "it's hard to get a good job / live well / know how to dress"
mircea_popescu: "o hey, i heard in merv they issue you a pair from the dmv"
boolcrap: wtf is merv
mircea_popescu: merv is a city that was.
boolcrap: dude america is a the head of the fucking feminist nazi movement
boolcrap: cooking is frowned upon
trinque: chick still wants to please
mircea_popescu: how much time do you folk spend reading shit online ?
boolcrap: i read the chat long when i want to feel like an idoit
boolcrap: i dont read alot
boolcrap: stan reads the most
trinque: stay, feel like an idiot more often, learn.
mircea_popescu: so how dja know about lal this feminist nazi thangs ?
boolcrap: well im living in it
boolcrap: i had to pull my wife away from it
trinque: plenty of chicks in tx still that fuckin glow when they made something you like to eat
trinque: i.e. not broken
boolcrap: texas is a conservative state
mircea_popescu: i confess in my (perhaps maginal) experience, the whole "feminist" charade is mostly a (very transparent) defense for shy teen/early 20s chicks. more pretense than anything, and very strongly correlated with "i'm not sure what to do once clothes come off"
boolcrap: cruz is the governor :)
trinque: senator
boolcrap: my bad
boolcrap: nah its this whole crazy idea that men are not superior to women
mircea_popescu: at what, lactation ?
boolcrap: care taking
boolcrap: women are the best care takers around
boolcrap: so stop going back to work 2 weeks after ur baby is born
mircea_popescu: if i actually had to milk dudes i'd prolly give up cappuccino
boolcrap: i dont think thats milk
trinque: >b 1
trinque: shinohai: how dare you
trinque: boolcrap: chick that gripes at you with controlling "feminism" is instinctively demanding you nut up. it's her child-raising instincts trying to shove you along to adulthood.
trinque: and she resents you for evoking that
trinque: mircea_popescu has treated this subject amply
boolcrap: maybe you are right
boolcrap: maybe feminism is running rampant because there are no more men in america
mircea_popescu: the talking points memo!
boolcrap: im here to regurgitate the republican talking points
boolcrap: didn't you get the memo
mircea_popescu: can we call you boosh-v ?
boolcrap: i dont get the reference
mircea_popescu has now accidentally checked out josh marshall's blog, is amused at all the butthurt.
trinque: guy seems to love trump
trinque: he can't stop talking about him
mircea_popescu: liberals, you know. mouth says one thing, ass says another.
trinque: ahaha
mircea_popescu fondly remembers all teh brexit "polls" being wrong by just about 50%
boolcrap: whoa
boolcrap: this is the first time ive ever seen anyone be called a liberal blogger
boolcrap: on wiki.
mircea_popescu: "notable because no reason"
boolcrap: everyones always "conservative" something
boolcrap: so i guess if you are born without gag reflex
boolcrap: you always have career options
boolcrap: can your gag reflex be removed?
mircea_popescu: apparently.

mircea_popescu: so i watched a southpark episode last night, it was one about how all the canadians moved to the us because they had elected a trump and canada was turned into a total detroit by his idiocy BECAUSE THEY WEREN'T PAYING ATTENTION, and it made me think of
mircea_popescu: yea, it's totally because not paying attention to ~trump~ that place's going to shit. not because not paying attention to the soul eating, all consuming bureaucracy. that's a-ok, will make the country not-great again because it doesn't need to, because to them it's always been great.

mircea_popescu: so then say "sorry, i couldn't maintain my bot to spec" not "bickering. truth helps.

"would you like french fries with that ?" level of interface design. i guess menus and whatnot were "to

thestringpuller: asciilifeform: is there a write up of the pogo yet?
asciilifeform: thestringpuller: not satisfied with the cookbooks on trb mailinglist ?
asciilifeform: and here i thought i beat the subject to an agonizingly pedantic death...
thestringpuller: asciilifeform: nah i'm sourcing it in my own docs. i'm doing a big write up of trb for n00bs.
asciilifeform: i even described how to boot kernels off the net, for quick turnaround when working on a kernel-cum-bitcoind shitball
asciilifeform: (off lan via tftp, that is)
diana_coman: thank you asciilifeform !
asciilifeform: diana_coman: iirc phf followed my recipe to a happy result. might want to ask him when he comes back from desert planet.
thestringpuller: asciilifeform: ugh. every mention of burning man makes me extremely jealous.
thestringpuller: I love going to burns. It's a break from any real world problem you might have.
mircea_popescu: with burning rage.
mircea_popescu: plus there's blond girls there.
asciilifeform: thestringpuller: so why aintcha there.
thestringpuller: cuz i iz too deep in the uranium mines to take leave. maybe when my shift is up.
shinohai: Come to Columbia with me thestringpuller, mebbe there is still a trilema girl down there you can hook up with

thestringpuller: trilema girls in columbia?
thestringpuller: how did mircea_popescu know i like blondes?
mircea_popescu: shinohai you know there ~is~ a slight possibility you're walking into a trap, yes ?
shinohai: I know, but I haz friend meeting me there from Venezuela
mircea_popescu: thestringpuller i took a shot.
mircea_popescu: ah ok then.
shinohai has been through centra America how much worse can Columbia be?
mircea_popescu: that's not it ; colombia itself is fine. if you have sense to travel on own arrangements, not share with random ho you met online, establish your own base and meet her from a position of power / in public / whatever like sane people will be ok.
mircea_popescu: if it's like "oh, random chick i met yesterday will meet me at airport and her... uhm... brothers... will drive me to their estancia in the interior" you're setting self up for lulz.

thestringpuller: but how do you prevent "feature bloat" or is that non-issue?
mircea_popescu: why would i have to prevent it ? there's specific space in the design spec for third-party developed maps. they run by whatever rules third party comes up with ; player doens't have to enter it. if he does enter it, client loads up more data.

Yipdard: take time to download this game?
thestringpuller: mircea_popescu: Lol. I like how S.MG is already what Everpoop Software (or whatever spells of genesis guise are doing) wants to do.
mircea_popescu: bout 500mb it was iirc.
mircea_popescu: thestringpuller for instance, the intention is to have, say, "game board". players craft it, and if they want play. so you can make your own pinball machine, and play pinball in eulora.
BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> if it's like "oh, random chick i met yesterday will meet me at airport and her... uhm... brothers... will drive me to their estancia in the interior" you're setting self up for lulz. << lol

mircea_popescu: he might be busy holding in the poop
shinohai: Well if I get kidnapped by Columbian drug lords I can hardly access my gpg keyz
mircea_popescu: with both hands
mircea_popescu: shinohai columbian drug lords have much better things to do than play bitch for random gringo tourist.
mircea_popescu: random street urchin with gang lord delusions however, may perceive you're in not as good position to check their priviledge as the ganglords are.
shinohai: Hence my scary Venezuelan friend as backup.
mircea_popescu: from what i hear (from chicks that ran away) venezuela is truly in the shit nowadays.

BingoBoingo: shinohai: Don't forget to carry your Kleins, hammer, and other tools of privilege inspection on your belt. Always dress for trabajo
BingoBoingo: Or more like Traba-ho
shinohai: I thought if I wore jeans and a flannel shirt with hammer in belt I might fit right in.
BingoBoingo: Really you should wear that everywhere, but seriously gotta have the Kleins to show you are srs about bsns.

mircea_popescu: i live in argentina.
mircea_popescu: besides, i don't vote ; i just publish articles.
Yipdard: oh fuck it, shinohai live in usa, sorry
shinohai: mircea_popescu: I will always accept payment in shares in lieu of picks
Yipdard: so you influence peoples but you don't vote
mircea_popescu: shinohai now this is a good point. you know what, ima put you on the list next month.
shinohai claps
mircea_popescu: knock yourself out. and also - make a "how to key" page on wiki, collect all the stuff you tell these people in one place.
thestringpuller: shinohai: lets go ride the D*C train
thestringpuller: n00b heaven
shinohai: 99% of it seems to be explaining gpg4win parts, but yeah time has come for a noobs guide
mircea_popescu: save yourself the typing.

gribble: | Bicken Back Being Bool means kicking back being cool... Blood gangs use b's instead of C's or K's because the letter K sounds like a C.
shinohai: lolz
mircea_popescu: trinque not a bad approximation at all.
mircea_popescu: the impressive thing, at least to me, is that it is an ideal artefact so utterly interpretable. from a purely political, or religious view it's one thing ; but a purely gnoseologic definition is also available, and it doesn't even have to import "person" or "reality" to work just fine. besides, it can be stated in any other systematic approach one cares to.
mircea_popescu: shinohai footnoted!
shinohai: ty mircea_popescu I will take my lumps but for the proper reason!
mircea_popescu: the mystery of lumps is that only the fallen may ever get any. to everyone else it's figs an' dates.
mircea_popescu: in other omg i can't believe this shit, apparently there's an entire ecosystem built around "faucets".
shinohai: That's why all the eulora noobs have to PM me 3 times to ask if this is a scam.Most of them are likely faucet farmers.
mircea_popescu: << pewrhaps a fine example
PeterL: And if it was a scam, you would tell them if they PM to ask?
mircea_popescu: shinohai amusingly enough i'm pretty sure we've already paid out more than the entire "faucets" this whole year.
mircea_popescu: apparently they do thinks like 200 satoshi at a time
mircea_popescu: PeterL btw, you ready to do some mining i neulora ?
PeterL: welll, yes (if I could get it to run...) just a sec
shinohai: 1 bitcent is roughly 6 months of average fauceting I'd say, yet some of these guys do it religiously.
mircea_popescu: and holy shit they solve captchas. like... by hand ?
PeterL: when your time is worth 0, solving capchas by hand is a great way to spend it
shinohai: lol yeah,someone made a shitcoin once, iirc where pow and distribution was accomplished by filling in captchas.
mircea_popescu: alternatively you could just spend a week reading about gardening, grow some potatoes.
trinque: somewhere a fart bubbles through goo in a glass cylinder
mircea_popescu: lol trinque has transcended, he will now speak in koans.
PeterL: but growing potatoes requires some initial capital investment (and physical work!), filling out capchas is basically free!!!
mircea_popescu: except needs computer and internet
mircea_popescu: go steal a potato from market stall, plant it by side of road wut.
mircea_popescu: somehow people dun do this irl, but online - no qualms about it.
PeterL: well, if you are living in your parents basement, you already have computer and internet, right?
mircea_popescu: socialism, the tool of insanity. getting people to ruin their lives since forever, through the surefire method of confusing the cost structure.
mircea_popescu: "The sports casters are blaming back to school shopping, as if kids never before got outfitted for school at the and of August." << ahahaha. mno. as if anyone in the us has any money to spend. that's the big fucking point. usg.agitprop is talking about some wholly hallucinated shoping, that in their feverish imagination is so outsized as to keep people away from baseball even ?
mircea_popescu: long live the soviets lmao.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: as if anyone in the us has any money to spend << waiwat??
asciilifeform: no shortage of 'shoppingists'
asciilifeform: (~where~ they get the printolade, whether from redditcard or from turning tricks, i do not know, but there is never such a time that the shops are not packed)
PeterL: plenty of bezzle to go around
asciilifeform: << can't steal potato 'while you sleep!111'
a111: Logged on 2016-09-01 20:33 mircea_popescu: somehow people dun do this irl, but online - no qualms about it.
PeterL: cant fill out capchas by hand while you sleep either
asciilifeform: eh sure you can.
asciilifeform: 1,001 ways.
asciilifeform: (all known 'captcha' systems fall into category of either 'unusable' or 'trivially breakable.')
asciilifeform: << these, like roof over house, are not part of ~anybody's cost calculus.
a111: Logged on 2016-09-01 20:32 mircea_popescu: except needs computer and internet
asciilifeform: because, again, ~everyone already has them.
asciilifeform: and wouldn't even consider not having.
asciilifeform: ( e.g., gabriel_laddel, a homeless dude, still has'em )
mircea_popescu: i dunno, it sounds to me like queues and rations are just about next.
asciilifeform: 'next' in what sense ? plenty of folks have been standing in queues and eating rationed liquishit since fdr
mircea_popescu: in the mainstream sense
asciilifeform: do we have to review the photos i took in bmore ?

BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> and holy shit they solve captchas. like... by hand ? << Seriously the captcha problem as been solved by the poverty solution.
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo it's a tad ridiculous you know. to quote from the other chan, "kinda funny, over the course of the week the faucet folk managed to get a little more than one of a pair of old style tits"
mircea_popescu: i mean seriously, the 0.1 chicks used to get exceed the total gdp of that entire many-thousand strong community
asciilifeform: of what are made new-style tits? beryllium copper ?
asciilifeform: 6-axis machined ?
mircea_popescu: nowadays only 0.02 see
asciilifeform: ah this.
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: You gotta remember that poverty also colonizes their minds kinda ruining them for anything else. But yeah seriously none would find a pair of tits to photograph.
BingoBoingo: Gotta remember these are slime that wants to do the work of python scripts et al.
shinohai: Pretty sure I got tit market wrapped these days
mircea_popescu: well, nothinh wrong with that, their labour is actually useful in eulora
BingoBoingo: Are you sure?
asciilifeform: iirc there was entire thread re subj
asciilifeform: where mircea_popescu advanced the argument that 'eulora needs dungbeetles'
mircea_popescu: the irony of how eulora is better utilization of these people's time than their own life is not lost on me
asciilifeform: or sumthinglikethat
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i dun play, so i cannot say, but if indeed the thing ~needs~ dungbeetles, to work correctly, this is a risk.
asciilifeform: because dungbeetles are fickle and fashion-driven.
asciilifeform: today - eulora, tomorrow - shitquest etc.
mircea_popescu: it needs ~some~
mircea_popescu: and i'd be much surprised if there can be such a thing as competition.
mircea_popescu: shitquest costs money to play after all.
asciilifeform: fair'nuff.
BingoBoingo: I kinda worry about the dung castles lining the shore.
mircea_popescu: eh, how'd that work ?
BingoBoingo: Honestly I dunno about the game, but I trust the beetles can find a wrong way to play it.
mircea_popescu: dun think so.
mircea_popescu: this is after all the gambit here. i say they can't.
BingoBoingo: Well I guess the worst case is you might have to accelerate the development of oppression mechanisms in the game.
Framedragger: mircea_popescu: just to update, i've cleared my "things owed to relatives etc in short term" list and will move on to log bot+web feature stuff. realistically things will happen on tuesday (or before), because $job from monday onwards. will let y'all know.
BingoBoingo: Framedragger: If you call it $job you have the wrong attitude towards it. Call it "hobby"
asciilifeform: Framedragger: the second parcel of keyz has been digested today.
asciilifeform: (and yes, getting them ~into the db~ takes ~100% of the time)
Framedragger: asciilifeform: \o/
Framedragger: BingoBoingo: yah i've to take better care of my hobbies eh
asciilifeform: ^ from the 'trump as ru spy' thing.
mircea_popescu: Framedragger cool deal.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform oh, i thought it was isisterrorists.
mircea_popescu: but anyway, lulzy "duel" of talking points from the libtards and really-not-libtards-promise. they all agree russia doesn't matter and that hillary will somehow win the "elections", but you're more than free to connect the rest of the dots any way you please ? hurr durr.
mircea_popescu: a) in a us-ru confrontation, ru wins ; as they have won the past three ; b) only thing hillary wins is another pint of hagen dazs. woman's a born loser, and always ahs been.
mircea_popescu: heck, she probably still has the icecream ladels from back when she was the... second lady of the first man.
mircea_popescu: $up Farksers

asciilifeform: hey, recall, dhs took jurisdiction of 'critical infrastructure, which now includes elections' not so long ago.
mircea_popescu: a right.
mircea_popescu: so she loses election and gets anointed by bureaucracy, is the last ditch of a hope ? mmmkay,
mircea_popescu: just as long as we agree woman doesn't have a prayer.
asciilifeform: the 'right' numbers - come out.
mircea_popescu: so you're saying "she loses, but gets anointed by bureaucracy anyway"
asciilifeform: nobody, afaik, cancelled diebold et al.
mircea_popescu: yet, at any rate.
mircea_popescu: you know diebold headquarters burns just like any other vinyl siding construction ; vaginal pear splits up andy matter's wife just as well as any other.
mircea_popescu: so far it's the republic that published the dnc emails ; not the other way around.
asciilifeform: what's an andy matter ?
mircea_popescu: diebold ceo.
asciilifeform: clitler wields the pear.
mircea_popescu: you entertain this delusion, whereby the bureaucrats somehow have freedom to act ; republic does not
mircea_popescu: reality in the field is exactly opposite, but hey.
asciilifeform: mno, bureaucrats are gloves
asciilifeform: on lizard hands.
mircea_popescu: gloves filled with gloves. there's no substance.
mircea_popescu: there's no meta-nsa, there's no anything. the dogvomit is dogvomit all the way down.
asciilifeform: dogvomit dun carbombate hastingses.
asciilifeform: $s arkencide
mircea_popescu: there is no substantial difference between hillary rodham clinton, ross william ulbricht and adam james susan.
mircea_popescu: they're all the exact keyboard warrior, lost in a fantasy world where they "call assassinations" and "resolve problems" and whatnot.
mircea_popescu: the modern variant of the scape goat.
asciilifeform: eh when clitler takes out contract - patient dies.
mircea_popescu: this is provably not so.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu's model, in ru sphere is called 'inverse cargocult' - i.e. 'there are no airplanes, anywhere'
mircea_popescu: more like "there are no wizards, unless you mean 30 yo virgins"
mircea_popescu: (incidentally, the elliot kid is a fucking self-parody, like a comic book character irl)
asciilifeform: it dun take a wizard to nailgun a defenseless schmuck or two.
mircea_popescu: defenseless. a fucking wasp colony can take out the defenseless.
asciilifeform: and for the well-defended, they have ghaddafization.
mircea_popescu: the 90s are over.
asciilifeform: i do hope to live to see them over, yes.
asciilifeform: but not convinced that i will.
mircea_popescu: you know they recently found a russian fellow with his family, in the woods.
mircea_popescu: he was pleased to hear the tsar was finally overturned
mircea_popescu: a century ago.
asciilifeform: this actually happened
mircea_popescu: he died soon thereafter ; likely from salt poisoning.
mircea_popescu: no, i know.
asciilifeform: in '60s
mircea_popescu: no, in like 2013
asciilifeform: must've been his grandkid.
mircea_popescu: well yes.
asciilifeform: lol salt?
mircea_popescu: split the difference : it was 1978
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform yeah, salt is toxic to the innocent.
mircea_popescu: in other retarded people lulz,
shinohai: dafuq is that atrocity ... 2000 sats? srsly ?
shinohai: "Note: We are getting low revenue from ads since we have few players/views/clicks."
mircea_popescu: grep for "Ok guys, I found a general failure on the defense system of the game and don't know how to fix that making the game unable to play at this point."
mircea_popescu: or alternatively i guess for " For everybody, sorry my windows got some bug yesterday while I was doing the banners to promote the game Embarrassed and I'm busy trying to fix that, after that I'll give all atention to you all! Thanks for all!"
shinohai: Interestingly enough, admin needs to wear paid signature to get extra 0.02 btc a week to pay server costs
mircea_popescu: oh look at that, "binary options"

boolcrap: yeah i went in today
asciilifeform: that must suck.
boolcrap: i dont work for the old people u know
asciilifeform: must suck even moar.
boolcrap: its not a bad gig actually
boolcrap: ive had alot of time to work on side jobs
boolcrap: i only go in once a week or so
asciilifeform: that's 1nce too many imho.
boolcrap: well

boolcrap: you can only make so much money not interacting with the ppls
asciilifeform: boolcrap: y'know, it is possible to interact with people via newfangled telegraphs'n'such.
boolcrap: u mean, google hangouts? ;p
mircea_popescu: consensteemit or what waseet
asciilifeform: 'all deuterium is gone. It just disappeared. Give me back my deuterium please, i need it!!!'
mircea_popescu: gets better, "i don't know how to fix that 500 error so will close the game"
asciilifeform: 'Since the game is full of bug, it does not mean i don't work hard to get to the first position. My mines is working full power and bring more than 60000 resource per hour'
asciilifeform: ahahahaha
mircea_popescu: anyway, someone found a reimplementation of eve online in php made by some mexicans (literally), edited some stuff in his notepad ; but then the machine "caught some viruses" when he was making banners (ie, downloaded random photoshop crack) and well...
asciilifeform: boolcrap: re: side jobs, do you still suffer with that restaurant orderbook thing?
mircea_popescu: kinda burned, fell over and then sunk into the swamp.

asciilifeform: boolcrap: aha. but it was closed, i had nfi when it opens/not.
asciilifeform: and 3? why not 4. 5.
asciilifeform: think - big..
boolcrap: dam that sucks
boolcrap: were u in the area?
boolcrap: its closed on sundays and from 2-5
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: 'Listen you, i wont say donk, but spam accusin with no evidence, before accusing someone of using bugs better check with that player why he has so much points, and does he even know why he has so much points. I am sick tired of jelious players who don't know how to play game and everyone else is than using bugs and i don't know what else. SO, Please, what is your igm NICK? I gave you mine. I have 3 words for you - L2P
mircea_popescu: jelious ?
asciilifeform: i had nfi that sewer rats had pc and net pipe.

mircea_popescu: check your priviledge bro. there's more people who don't javascript because they can't than the ones who don't because won't.
asciilifeform: what's it take to can't?
mircea_popescu: and more generally : for every one person who won't do x because stupid idea - there's at least 79 who don't because it never occured to them.
asciilifeform: missing both hands & feet ?
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform braindamage.
asciilifeform: i suppose at the 'tie my shoes for me or i'll shit everywhere' level, not much javascriptin' happening
asciilifeform: but then again!
asciilifeform: having seen the 'software industry', it is difficult to be certain even of this.
mircea_popescu: "do you know why it's called software, sonny ? it's because i shit better code than this!"
asciilifeform: in other 'news', i found the ~1 remaining maker of non-chinese-shitsteel screwdrivers (yes) on the planet.
asciilifeform: they cost > own weight in silver.
mircea_popescu: eh. food costs own weight in silver.
asciilifeform: well yes.
mircea_popescu: silver is really not what it used to be.
asciilifeform: 90% of chineseness is simply from bizarre expectations
asciilifeform: e.g., that tool 'should not cost...'
mircea_popescu: JELIOUS RAJE
asciilifeform: for that matter, how many folks here have ever used or even seen a proper pair of tweezers.
asciilifeform: (they converge to a needle point, that is lathe-turned conical, and ~stays that way~ after years of stabbing into various objects)
mircea_popescu has / had various surgical implements ; knows.
asciilifeform: aha, surgical
asciilifeform: this is not even dirigible material, pretty basic item.
mircea_popescu: it's also a dying item. pre laparascopy it was a major tool of the trade.
asciilifeform: eh nobody canceled tweezer.
asciilifeform: just as no one will cancel hammer.
asciilifeform: $up boolcrap

mircea_popescu: very little of what used to take skilled hands and tweezers in the operating room still does.
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: 'wiha' (germany)
mircea_popescu: wiha is good ppls.
BingoBoingo: There's a few other makers, but yes. Costs weight in silver.
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: and who knows for how long. wouldn't astonish me if they are opening the first chinese plant as we speak.
asciilifeform: or 10th.
mircea_popescu: and in other surgical news, the problem with boob implants is that the boob becomes a two-medium item, and now you experience refraction etcf.
asciilifeform: impedance mismatch!11111
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Then they lose "Charge weight in silver." Hand tool market has solid atm homeostasis between gradations of chinese shitsteel and leap to functional metal.
boolcrap: what is this heterosexual shit
