mircea_popescu: btw, i'm writing a mega-piece on clinical psychiatry. so save yourself an hour this evening.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i.e. 'ideological' #b-a perma-resident.
mircea_popescu: eh.
asciilifeform allocates hour.
mircea_popescu: what's the ideology.
mircea_popescu: "we hate X guy" is politics, not ideology. gotta have an idea for to ideology.
asciilifeform: then none.
Framedragger: asciilifeform: thanks for putting words into a person's mouth, i'm sure that did great justice. you call this ideological? << i call this just being more critical and reflective
asciilifeform: Framedragger: this is exactly it though.
asciilifeform: kakotronic.
Framedragger: you know, i recall shitty philosophy students dissing entire philosophical works by just calling them "platonic". can't really do justice by generalizing like that, can you now
Framedragger: (in truth, not the best of analogies)
mircea_popescu: anyone mind quoting the source material ?
Framedragger: 16-08-2016
Framedragger: ‏‎asciilifeform:pankkake: the 'can't admit being wrong' thing is quite true, and whether you can afford dealing with mptronics, is very personal matter. so i do not actually disagree, as such, with pankkake.
Framedragger: "i'm more curious re kakobrekla's motivation for withholding any of the info."
Framedragger: "the only possible explanation is that not all of it contributes to the narrative he wants to build."
Framedragger: ‏‎punkman:flimflams: "oops flushed the orderbook again", "oops mispaid dividends again", "HELLO I AM THE CEO OF BITCOIN, HERE IS THE BITCOIN EXAM, oh what do you mean btc addresses don't keep a balance?" "it's not socialized losses, it's btc cartelisation research" "you were being an asshole so I banned your mpex account"
Framedragger: quotation with right-handed text is fucked
asciilifeform: it was lulzy, kako promised 'proof that mircea_popescu is really nigerian' or similar
Framedragger: ftr i haven't made up my mind and a man is more complex than just a binary state machine
mircea_popescu: i am what ?!
Framedragger: haha
mircea_popescu: anyway, so what's the problem ? guy thinks he's on to something, this is the bread and butter of a life of the mind.
asciilifeform: i've tried and failed to convince the fella to write up his 'something'
Framedragger: my frustration with kako is that he doesn't think it's worth the time to write up a coherent narrative from his point of view. i'm sure it'd be useful to have it. maybe it's because it's impossible to have one in that case; maybe not; i for one don't fucking know
mircea_popescu: yeah well, these things take a while. go have einstein write up "his something" the year prior his writing it you know ?
asciilifeform: and hey, i might learn that i also was always nigerian?
Framedragger: :D
mircea_popescu: this is fucking absurd, not like guy never saw me ? wtf.
mircea_popescu: is the idea here that "whatever, we've already fucked ourselves with anyone with a clue, might as well say things that'd perhaps persuade a fraction of anyone else" ? or what, is "nigerian" more of a state of mind than a state of pigmentation ?
asciilifeform: mind
Framedragger: totally sure it was meant with "mind". it's kinda gotten out of hand and is imho not constructive; i mean, to keep to this narrative but not put it into (coherent stream of) words
asciilifeform: as i understand, he now disbelieves in all of mircea_popescu that he had not personally seen
mircea_popescu: heh sure, anyone can be anything etc. whatevs.
mircea_popescu: to get back to it, "i am suspicious of this mp fellow" is not an ideology ; nor in itself much of a problem.
thestringpuller: ;;later tell diana_coman RE: our conversation of engines >>
asciilifeform: the really depressing bit about kako is that he floats in a vacuum now.
mircea_popescu: Framedragger it's trauma, dude. he did what he earnestly believed was right at the time ; turns out to have been entirely and unmitigatedly wrong. this is catastrophic, and especially so in poorly socialized, introverted, intelligent males. now gotta reevaluate everything, the evaluations often don't come out meaningful, the correct alternatives are frequently perceived as alf-impossible, it's a mess.
asciilifeform: i suggested various constructive lines of work to him, and (mega-unsurprise) it did not help.
Framedragger: mircea_popescu: don't disagree with your characterization. but i don't think the "entirely and unmitigatedly wrong" is objectively / necessarily the case. mining konspiracy, i don't know, mircea. but at this point i'm too out of the loop for the "i" to be mean anything here.
mircea_popescu: ftr : my "fuck you, you may not be poor and be here" is not (as i'm certain oft perceived, because why the fuck not, it's easier) simply mp-superby. it is a strict and absolute necessity for one's own mental health.
Framedragger: to mean*
mircea_popescu: this is BECAUSE people who are poor often lack the specific sort of sophistication that will keep them from falling in that exact hole.
asciilifeform: eh the fella is richer than , e.g., asciilifeform
Framedragger: asciilifeform: this is prolly again one of those "mind" things
mircea_popescu: i dunno what it is ; but the risk is certainly there.
asciilifeform: Framedragger: in case you didn't know - kako sits on a tall pile of earlyadoptronium (and also bbetronium)
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform as a model, i propose to you that there's no substantial difference between this and say your bizarro position re llvm yest.
mircea_popescu: not in its substance, MIND YOU
mircea_popescu: in its expression.
asciilifeform: he doesn't work for money and doesn't, as i understand, ever intend to.
mircea_popescu: i have slaves who also don't ; so has the welfare state. this doesn't makethem "richer than x". they are the 0 of poor.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: my position came from a substantial stint of actual study and experiment with llvm.
mircea_popescu: so yes, in this sense, it IS a "mind thing"
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform yes, but your expression of that position came from five minutes of being a teenage boy alone.
Framedragger: << interesting - but i agree with mircea_popescu here that it's not entirely relevant, as it's not meant in that sense. but, interesting
scriba: Logged on 2016-09-07: [13:28:09] <asciilifeform> Framedragger: in case you didn't know - kako sits on a tall pile of earlyadoptronium (and also bbetronium)
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu is invited to write article where llvm is described eloquently ..
mircea_popescu: yeah sure, soon as apple's check clears.
asciilifeform: but i have nfi how to fit it in 1 line as other than 'elaborate work of evil, baited mousetrap.'
mircea_popescu: i'm not trying to repress you! i'm just using things.
mircea_popescu: it's not "x was wrong, bad alfie!" it's "well review how x worked and it'll offer a model for how y works"
asciilifeform: lel
asciilifeform: jurov: mega-disappoint! where is the vomit?
mircea_popescu: Framedragger the miner conspiracy is in no way related to any of this ; however. if you recall, that disagreement as such resulted in entirely no friction.
Framedragger: oh really? interesting. but in there is that "Cost of doing business in Bitcoin : 17.94766149 BTC"
mircea_popescu: if someone shouts "down with the government" and then tries to grab a policeman's gun, he will be prosecuted ; and he will obviously claim "it's political". nevertheless...
mircea_popescu: Framedragger sure. businesses will on occasion run into unexpected costs. this is a fact of [business] life.
asciilifeform: his position was, and afaik remains, ' mircea_popescu's misconfiguted btctron blew away 17+, he should pay ' etc.
asciilifeform: *configured
mircea_popescu: and this is, as you notice, entirely divorced from that.
asciilifeform: i do not yet notice?
Framedragger: wasn't the whole point of it that kako disagreed of you attempting to charge bbet money for spending money twice (ironically, zero fee tx will be more difficult with no block size increase - which i'm against, too). that this was not in the gpg contract. so he did not sign bbet statement. and then bbet proceeded to be liquidated. you also disabled his mpex account for an unsigned comment on qntra or wherever which did not breach any clau
Framedragger: se of the gpg contract, but that's separate, too, i guess
mircea_popescu: that it's a smoothly working machinery, where escalation was tried and failed and then tried and failed and then and failed AND THEN TRIED!!! and failed does not excuse one from pretending "the last step" is "because the first step".
mircea_popescu: there bowls of "fuck me, i'm stupid" to be eaten at every juncture. perhaps of increasing size, it is true, but there nevertheless.
mircea_popescu: the anal child's "you didn't buy me my toy so it's your fault i'm a junkie" only works in the mind of the anal child.
asciilifeform: i happen to think that kako was a bloody fool for signing up for '0 asset corp'
asciilifeform: it is like that no-fat lab mouse
asciilifeform: if you forget to feed it just once...
asciilifeform: or it gets excited and runs a little too long
mircea_popescu: Framedragger not only separate, but entirely nobody's concern. i can ban anyone for any reason or for no reason and i offer no explanations. this is how, you know, your bank works, also.
asciilifeform: i did point this to him.
mircea_popescu: aaaanyway.
mircea_popescu goes back to his article.
asciilifeform goes back to his unspeakable horrors.
Framedragger: mircea_popescu: absolutely. and at the same time you can understand why a bunch of people do not intend to hold any money with you ("these people have money?!" - mp laughs), because even if the "ban" is legit, it doesn't exactly inspire things.
Framedragger goes back to $job :(
trinque: are we back to opining on a man's private business decisions like it's reddit or what
Framedragger: that's a ridiculous slippery slope; street thieves also run private business enterprises in that respect, i suppose
asciilifeform: oh but in other noose,
Framedragger stops fruitless antagonising
asciilifeform: (upnp) 'There is a heap buffer overflow vulnerability in the create_url_list function in upnp/src/gena/gena_device.c. I first discovered this vulnerability when working with version 1.6.19 and have confirmed that it also exists in the latest code on the master branch.'

shinohai chisels this into republic law stones
Framedragger: ah! lol. in relation to mutual recursion, scriba won't repeat same line forever, fwiw; it will switch to "..."; but mutual destruction hasn't been empirically tested, so heh.
Framedragger: i'm not sure regarding explicit list of bots for each bot for good citizenry / collaboration purposes, but as phf said his bot already does that, kinda.
Framedragger: (if same irc nick invokes same line multiple lines that line won't be repeated foreva; so there's that)
Framedragger: believe it or not bot writers (scriba just piggybacks on a general bot) think about these things, sometimes :p
Framedragger: of course a mutual recursive *chain* could maybe be constructed....
Framedragger: regarding readability, yah /me prefers phf's html too, i think :D i'll see about it after more important things are taken care of; but it's prolly good to have different designs, too.

Framedragger: makes sense to me
mircea_popescu: or at least they'd god damned better.
Framedragger: i guess it has a socialist bent to it - i thought - noobs won't read actual logs so might as well quote what's actually needed; and, it is useful for when it's just a couple of lines. but it does add to the thickness of logz.
phf: Framedragger: also i did notice that utc+3 to utc shift midday ;)
mircea_popescu: Framedragger we don't cater to stupid.
Framedragger: phf: ...yeah. i wanted to switch to utc so changed environment settings for when it next restarted and then it restarted sooner than expected. SUCH ENGINEERING :/

mircea_popescu: how did you achieve this satisfaction ?
thestringpuller: this imo is why the state of gaming is where it is. Games have become "babysitters", rather than quality toys.

jurov: the studio mastering has to shoehorn the record into vinyl's deficiencies (so that the tracks don't touch etc)
mircea_popescu: yes they weren't originally digitized. if you think 1960s microphones and buzzy electronics make for a better quality...

mircea_popescu: anyway, it's rather evident that there's a mutually-reinforcing ring of idiots. check out yegge's wikipedia article, for instance. curated with love.
asciilifeform: 'Yegge accidentally made an internal Google memo public on Google+ in October 2011. His 3,700-word comment garnered major media and blogger attention for Yegge's pointed commentary criticizing the leanings of the company's technological culture (such as labeling Google+'s minimalist and, in his view, lackluster public platform "a pathetic afterthought") as well as for his comments about his former employer, Amazon (such as calling Am
asciilifeform: azon CEO Jeff Bezos "Dread Pirate Bezos"). Google co-founder Sergey Brin stated that he would still have his job.'

mircea_popescu: "It's time [to] explain the meaning of "Hurd". "Hurd" stands for "Hird of Unix-Replacing Daemons". And, then, "Hird" stands for "Hurd of Interfaces Representing Depth". We have here, to my knowledge, the first software to be named by a pair of mutually recursive acronyms." << arguably its most notable accomplishment to date.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: did i fall into a parallel universe some time recently where linus lifting the hurd userland never happened ?
asciilifeform: or wat.
mircea_popescu: what, you think that made them admit they suck ?

asciilifeform: torvalds lifted the userland utils

asciilifeform: liberated, lifted, pillaged, whichever.
asciilifeform: bsd, recall, in modern sense, was not yet a thing.
asciilifeform: it was gnu's or 'write own'.
mircea_popescu: no, actually, actually architect wanted to just adapt a bsd
mircea_popescu: but stallman wanted to wait n years for some ivy league product.
mircea_popescu: which sucked.

mircea_popescu: they stole from the losers. logical.
mircea_popescu: anyway, the original linked lisp verbiage was funny to me mostly because it's all written from the perspective of "object oriented is god". which was very much groupthink cca 2006.
mircea_popescu: a ~certain~ groupthink, of a certain sort of people.

mircea_popescu: what "imagine future self" for crying out loud. how about imagine your future butt. with welts and all.
asciilifeform: none of these folk are getting arse welts any more than they'll be dragged on a rope under dirigible.
mircea_popescu: yes, but the PLACE WHERE THEY'D GO is manifestly there.
mircea_popescu: much like kid in soviet lands, with a catalogue for to apply stamps for a prize. there's the spaces clearly delineated ; and no stamps. ever.
asciilifeform: ^
mircea_popescu: aaanyway. i imagine in typical style of the poor peasant girl, they tell themselves the reason they don't get to go to the seaside is because they're better than that.
asciilifeform: BIG BUGZ
asciilifeform: or what was it
asciilifeform: gargauni ?
mircea_popescu: that, yeah.
mircea_popescu: nah , those are different bugs.
asciilifeform: hm
mircea_popescu: anyway, re "handful of biological women" : there was at no point in the history of porn that i;m aware of, a differential lower than three degrees of magnitude between the chick count and the dork count.
mircea_popescu: so.. handful of girlz, yes, and a bunch of dorks, yes. numbers check out.
asciilifeform: about same % as in, e.g., mining camp ?
mircea_popescu: naa
asciilifeform: or whatever other meatgrinder-for-supernumerary-males-with-chix-audience
mircea_popescu: see, the delusion of choice adds like two to twelve zeroes.
mircea_popescu: miners wanted at least a whif of the pussy.
mircea_popescu: dorks are happy with squarefucks.
asciilifeform: squarehappy.
mircea_popescu: shouldn't happies be round ?
asciilifeform: not these.
asciilifeform: these - square.
mircea_popescu: let's compromise :
mircea_popescu: happycheese
asciilifeform: sounds unpleasantly smegmatic for some reason.
mircea_popescu: perhaps because it's true.
asciilifeform: btw - ~why~ was it that the peasant gurl could not go to the sea ?
asciilifeform: i never grasped
mircea_popescu: by herself ?! what, as a 12yo or w/e ?!
asciilifeform: or as older etc
asciilifeform: folks dun stay 12 forever
mircea_popescu: as older wouldn't be relevant to the story, being later. who knows, maybe she grew up to worship my footsepts.
mircea_popescu: but in any case : you couldn't just BUY a hotel reservation. you had to get tickets.
asciilifeform: ro is what, 900km wide ? and iirc it's got trains
mircea_popescu: which were distributed by workplace
mircea_popescu: so you had to be cool.
mircea_popescu: if you tried to camp on the sea you'd have been arrested and sent to work.
asciilifeform: crash with friends ?
mircea_popescu: the #1 thing i liked about ro socialism and dislike in us socialism is this. idleness was fucking illegal, "homelessness" meant the police picked you up, beat you up, and sent you to work camp.
mircea_popescu: and computer programming, as understood today, same.
asciilifeform: тунеядство
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform well this one had no friends.
asciilifeform: ^ we had a word.
asciilifeform: in the su penal code.
asciilifeform: it doesn't even translate to eng.! afaik
mircea_popescu: !~translate Ro to Ru vagabondaj
jhvh1: mircea_popescu: бродяжничество
asciilifeform: that sounds more britishy actually
mircea_popescu: i think i like this better
asciilifeform: !~translate Ru to Eng тунеядство
jhvh1: asciilifeform: parasitism
asciilifeform: nah.
asciilifeform: or rather, not quite.
mircea_popescu: yeah, this also existed, but entirely different.
asciilifeform: more closely would be 'uselessly-eating'
mircea_popescu: parasitism = mp lives off his investments. vagabondaj = alice_ is not sucking cock.
asciilifeform: nono
asciilifeform: that was different article
asciilifeform: in penal code
mircea_popescu: heh
asciilifeform: 'нетрудовые доходы'
mircea_popescu: two words ? such waste!
asciilifeform: huffman coding !111111111111
asciilifeform: i must disagree that the alices are idle, however.
asciilifeform: they are busting their nuts for hitler.
asciilifeform: cranking out systemd's, ukukus, etc.
BingoBoingo: <asciilifeform> (i ~wish~ i were making this up... but: the 'rationalists' have this... sacrament? where they sit around in infinitely recursive stupour, contemplating 'future self') << HERETICS ACTING FROM PURPOSE
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: sorta what the magnetic pole of that direction looks like.
asciilifeform: it ain't pretty.
BingoBoingo: Looks like MAO-ism in the Nepali sense where every political party is a different kind of MAOist party
mircea_popescu: here's something for lulz :
mircea_popescu: and in the same vein / from the same source :
BingoBoingo: win
asciilifeform: dafuq
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: i read that as 'MAOI party'
BingoBoingo: EIther way fava beans still kill
asciilifeform: !!s tropar
asciilifeform: !~s tropar
jhvh1: asciilifeform: Error: "s" is not a valid command.
asciilifeform: hm
asciilifeform: $s tropar
a111: 4 results for "tropar",
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: what's a tropar
trinque: "hymn" in romanian according to cursory googling
asciilifeform: that'd make sense.
