phf: mircea_popescu's xchat specifically still does that. so his latin-1 encodable text comes out as such, otherwise it gets promoted to utf-8
phf: the way you deal with this madness you can see in the guts of a lot of irc clients: you try and decode just that line as utf-8, and if that fails, you decode it as latin-1.
mircea_popescu: ahahaha check him out, he unrolled the ball of yarn
mircea_popescu: nice going.
phf: oh there's a lot of shit like that in btcbase, that's what i was working on while not working on stability issues apparently
mircea_popescu: (ftr this is the irc protocol, even if many clients don't respect it. latin-1 with utf-8 fallback.)
mircea_popescu: used to be latin-1 with $arbitrary fallback, but THAT insanity (koi-9 chgannels, etc) blessfully went away.
mircea_popescu: in favour of you know, everyone shoving his insanity & watergun into "the same" balloon.
phf: but correct way of handling this in python, is to read() line by line, which returns whatever, ascii, then parse the [date] <nick> bits as ascii, then take the rest of line and try: msg.decode('utf-8') except: msg.decode('latin-1')
mircea_popescu: well technically the other way around, but whatevs.
phf: no no utf-8 is first, because latin-1 decoder will happily decode whatever, where's utf-8 will fail on umlauts and accent graves and such
mircea_popescu: latin-1 should fail on "nonprintables" or w/e they're called.
mircea_popescu: then again, i dun think anyone seriously maintained any of this in a decade+, so who even knows.
phf: and for the record, read in python doesn't ever fail, what fails is elevation from str to unicode that implicitly happens in places, like when you do "print" or inside the html encoder or whatever. the correct way is to treat "str" as a byte sequence, and explicitly do encode/decode when appropriate.
mircea_popescu: now this.
mircea_popescu: ALL CHARS ARE BYTES!

asciilifeform: 'The case originated when the owners of a restaurant decided that they no longer would accept that a news piece reporting on an legal case in which they were involved was accessible online from the archives of Primadanoi.it, a local news website of the Abruzzo region ... The plaintiffs did not dispute the veracity of the facts reported in the article, which is incidentally a case still at bar, nor the circumstance that, at least as t
asciilifeform: he local community is concerned, the news story was undeniably of public interest. They just argued that, two and half years from the events reported in the story, the right to inform the public could no longer be invoked to justify the permanence online of a story that was damaging their reputation and the image of their restaurant.'

mircea_popescu: the way things currently stand, being mentioned in qntra increases the italian gdp by a significant ammount, which is unjustified by an mostly absent public interest in the affairs of the shithole.

mircea_popescu is reading "the law of baron and femme", apropos of irradiated carrots
mircea_popescu: eg "A note, payable to a feme covert, for a debt due to her while sole, is legally payable to the husband, and the property vests absolutely in him, and after his death, goes to his executor or administrator, and not to the wife." and other such wonders.

mircea_popescu: aha.
asciilifeform: terrible ocr
mircea_popescu: well so get the item itself.
asciilifeform: it is probably here in the house somewhere.
mircea_popescu: anyway. the concept of "nothing to allcomers" logically extends to property on one hand ; the notion of holding property outside of a proper signature is utterly nonsensical on the other hand. however you look at things, a reversal of "progressive" innovation in legal matters is unavoidable.
asciilifeform: noshit.jpg
mircea_popescu: it's not just "the right to vote" that goes away upon review and limitation of the franchise. derps simply can't hold property, whether they be "the government of the united states" or "jane doe".
asciilifeform: word 'hold' ~means~ something.
asciilifeform: i.e. the buttons are connected.
asciilifeform: loonybin napoleons hold 0 thrones.
asciilifeform: and if joe can disconnect doe's buttons, they are joe's, not doe's.
mircea_popescu: mno. conversion, such as through theft, or mere possession, give no title in either law or equity.
mircea_popescu: the thief doesn't own what he "holds"
asciilifeform: if you convert the army and navy - let someone disagree
mircea_popescu: i disagree.
asciilifeform: and sure, 'army and navy' is not a complete picture, it is possible to disagree a la hassan i sabbah, or mircea_popescu .
asciilifeform: vaguely on subject - it is commonly supposed by n00bz that 'launch codes'-style absolute-yet-titleless property holding is a new, bitcoiny thing. but it is nothing of the kind, pirates did it.
asciilifeform: plenty took 'brainwallet' to the gallows.
mircea_popescu: in general title, and the concept of law, is an instrument of monarchy directed against the peerage.
asciilifeform: aha.
mircea_popescu: ie, "we don't need lords - here's robotic replacement our bureaucrats devised"
asciilifeform: the idiot english celebrate what, remember
asciilifeform: 'magna carta'
asciilifeform: which was precisely it
mircea_popescu: nevertheless, a comprehensive counter-imperial offensive will include measures meaningful to it, in its own terms.

mircea_popescu: "independents" all appear to be varying degrees of "serials filed off" ; mostly realtek's
asciilifeform: dun look like they even bothered with 'filing off'
asciilifeform: i've been trying and failing to locate an in-production gbE card with something other than these 3 on it, and failed.

phf: meaning they print in china?
phf: ah
asciilifeform: phf: almost certainly taiwan
asciilifeform: 'BroodMinder: Smart, Affordable Telemetry for Beekeeping' << lolk.
asciilifeform: sooooo, three, three, three nicmusketeeers, all muppets of guess who.
asciilifeform: sitting in ~every large server of whatever consequence.
asciilifeform: all dma-enabled (because pc arch doesn't actually offer any other way to move Gb/sec)
asciilifeform: this last detail i hope is not news to anyone.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: earlier i think you were thinking of 'pa semi'
asciilifeform: who were another gBe maker, bought by crapple and annihilated in '08.
asciilifeform: (fabless. i have nfi where their chip was physically made.)
asciilifeform: situation re gbE nics is quite reminiscent of american consumer banks.
asciilifeform: ask a street schmuck and he will say 'there are hundreds'
asciilifeform: when actual number, not counting the fed, is 3.
asciilifeform: and all 3 owned by His Reptilian Majesty.
asciilifeform: ooooh found another corpse
asciilifeform: 'alteon'
asciilifeform: made gBe. dead '09.
asciilifeform: (bought by 3com !)
asciilifeform: turns out they were rounded up just like the banks.
asciilifeform if nobody figured it out, was going through /usr/src/linux/drivers/net/ethernet simply ... asking 'gbE? alive?' for each item therein.
asciilifeform: http://btcbase.org/log/2016-09-22#1546731 << that's a realtek, you can spot the crab logo with naked eye.

asciilifeform: aaaaand on slightly related subj, whatever happened to https://archive.is/y2cFi ?
asciilifeform: ^ dude who found what was probably loose end of intel's implementation of 'magic usg packet'
asciilifeform: reliably hard-wedged the nic, regardless of what os was running, or if any
asciilifeform: http://www.zdnet.com/article/intel-ethernet-controller-vulnerable-to-packet-of-death << etc
asciilifeform: sorta popped up, and then quietly unhappened.
asciilifeform: (elsewhere) 'The network card crashed whenever the value 0x32 or 0x33 was found at offset 0x47f. Kristian first noticed this happening for specific SIP packets, but in the end, it turned out that any packet with 0x32 at 0x47f caused the crash. Intel traced the problem to an EEPROM used in this specific card (82574L). There are some links in the comment to the blog suggesting that others have run into this problem before. For example,
asciilifeform: the commend: "ping -p 32 -s 1110 x.x.x.x" can crash an affected card remotely.'
asciilifeform: http://www.kriskinc.com/intel-pod << exact recipe.
asciilifeform: http://blog.zorinaq.com/live-demonstration-of-intel-packet-of-death << also great. www-based 'death packet' sender.
asciilifeform: (come to think of it, mircea_popescu , what nic was in the original dulap..?)
asciilifeform: https://communities.intel.com/community/wired/blog/2013/02/07/intel-82574l-gigabit-ethernet-controller-statement ( https://archive.is/hdPrn ) << intel's official response. pure gold.
asciilifeform: 'It is Intel’s belief that this is an implementation issue isolated to a specific manufacturer, not a design problem with the Intel 82574L Gigabit Ethernet controller. Intel has not observed this issue with any implementations which follow Intel’s published design guidelines. Intel recommends contacting your motherboard manufacturer ...'
