asciilifeform: 'There is evidence that he has remote data storage accounts and has engaged in encrypted communications. The Defendant also had encrypted communication and cloud storage apps installed on his mobile device.' << mega-lel.
asciilifeform: funny how they put the 'cloud storage' in the bail denial affidavit, but have not yet even bothered to parallelconstruct some reason ~other than it~ for how the d00d could have been caught.

asciilifeform: 'In a review of the digital information seized from the Defendant, the government found a letter, apparently created in 2007, which was addressed to government employees with whom he worked, and signed “Hal.” In the letter, the Defendant refers to his co-workers as “clowns” and criticizes the government’s digital security measures: Well, for one thing, I’ve seen pretty much all your tech secrets wrt [sic] regard to compus

Martin's Mistake Was Trusting Cloud Storage Providers In Bail Denial Affidavit
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform pretty lulzy.
mircea_popescu: also quite accurate.
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: mistake-was -> mistake-wasn't ?
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: He used cloud storage apps so his mistake was trusting them? Even if he was dumping encrypted blobs.
asciilifeform: well yes
asciilifeform: but 'parallel construct' means the creation of some smoke screen
asciilifeform: e.g., 'he blabbed to his mother' or the like.
mircea_popescu: they evidently don't know what's in [at least some] of them. however they do know who he is. metadata.
asciilifeform: which afaik the prosecutor has not yet spewed forth.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform they've got real sloppy with it, partly because nobody buys it anyway, partly because bureaucrats are deeply uncreative (in this case, practically : affraid of "revealing" shit through the pc. as if they actually had something left to reveal.)
asciilifeform: so the sentence would go 'prosecutors forget to parallel construct that ... martin's mistake wasn't ... cloud'
BingoBoingo: AH: "Prosecutors Forget To Parallel Construct Away That Harold T. Martin's Mistake Was Trusting Cloud Storage Providers In Bail Denial Affidavit" -- New TItle
asciilifeform: aha, or this.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i dun get why they even mentioned 'cloud', it gave the card trick away in, srsly, 30 seconds of my reading
asciilifeform: gotta be a deliberate taunt to the audience.
mircea_popescu: because bread and butter stuff gets them ?

mircea_popescu: stupidity is the occam selection.
asciilifeform: the defense's affidavit (included) was also lulzy, evidently they had 1-3 of these per year, none were publicized. this time they needed a public scapegoat, so.
asciilifeform: re: 'cloud', imho the hypothesis that ~this was~ the parallelconstruction, cannot be dismissed.
asciilifeform: possibly d00d was not an idiot, and never touched 'clouds.'
asciilifeform: they created - for him.
asciilifeform: (whereas he was caught in some other way, e.g. by a politruk.)
mircea_popescu: if they did or if they didn't, the "i had nothing to do with it" defense is ironclad as far as that goes.
asciilifeform: dunno that there is a defense. the penal code article he was arrested under is a 'strict liability'.
asciilifeform: i.e. 'did the rape? do the ape'
mircea_popescu: strict liability for what ?
asciilifeform: found with the stash
mircea_popescu: "i never saw this before"
asciilifeform: the only defense, afaik, that could be attempted, was 'they planted it'
mircea_popescu: "so how come it's there ?" "you planted it" no we didn't" "mkay"
asciilifeform: and it would appear that his wife has already turned rat.
mircea_popescu: "it's your house" "it's not legal for me to shoot intruders, so no, it's your house"
asciilifeform: so he's through.
mircea_popescu: hey, marriage is for suckers.
asciilifeform: eh if he had no wife, it'd be some other rat.
mircea_popescu: how ? "i never saw her before."
asciilifeform: lel, brilliant, it's a marvel that anybody ever gets imprisoned, if it were so easy..
mircea_popescu: these are different matters.
mircea_popescu: the defense is still ironclad. that they stick him in jail anyway is entirely their problem.
asciilifeform: i suspect that the folks for whom 'the defense is ironclad' they simply nailgun.
asciilifeform: and we never hear of it.
asciilifeform: 'When confronted with specific marked documents he had stolen, only then did the Defendant begin to admit that: (1) he had taken documents and digital files that he knew were classified from his work assignment to his residence and vehicle, and (2) he knew such actions were unauthorized and wrong. He also admitted that he had committed these crimes regularly over many years.'
asciilifeform: confessed, supposedly.
asciilifeform: btw i doubt that it would take otto skorzeny and his merry men, to break martin out of the clink. if he were 'valuable', as prosecutor alleges, he would already be in moscow.
mircea_popescu: usians are weird about "The country"
mircea_popescu: he prolly didn't want to leave
asciilifeform: expected to hide among the grizzlies in the forest, or wat.
mircea_popescu: no, just, idiot born in the us, doesn't comprehend how utterly irrelevant it is. because "THE COUNTRY"
asciilifeform: i'd naively picture that if d00d made up his mind to plunder the crown jewels, he would have an escape plan (even if nonsensical, like, e.g., carl force's) in his head. but no.
mircea_popescu: can't leave "\the country"
trinque: could've been entirely power fantasy; he's outsmarted "teh best (tm)" after all
asciilifeform: it isn't even as if he would have to leave penniless and beg on streets.
trinque: piles of docs could've been his closet full of women's shoes/underwear/pinky-toes too
asciilifeform: trinque: what kind of 'power fantasy' ends with starving incommunicado in fbi dungeon ?

mircea_popescu: and in other news nobody gives a shit about : the argentine govt announced an "amnesty" whereby idiots with cash in strongboxes/matresses etc can "blanquear" it, by depositing it in a bank and paying 11% in tax ("to begin with"). same applies to foreign holdings.
mircea_popescu: this generous measure of voluntary self-rape "ends" on 31st, after being extended a coupla times. meanwhile the govt has been piling on debt at about 2x the rate of the kirscheristas.
mircea_popescu: seeing how the other, with expatriated goods, ends in march, i would expect the reasonable time for argentina to faceplant in the mud would be about april.

asciilifeform: what's the excuse for the vacuum job, devaluation a la ruble ?
mircea_popescu: the real estate market is holding by a thread. to understand each other : in the same country where the bumpkins imagine real estate goes by 1000-1500 usd per sq meter, they have SERIOUS problems over xmas bonus worth 2000 pesos (~120 dollars), to the point it's a major topic of televised debates.
mircea_popescu: sales are down to nothing, the people are utterly desperate for food and other basics. girls still wanna marry, this year like all others. etc.
mircea_popescu: the ~only hope to maintain the pretense is by putting a lot of pressure on the monetary supply. so... they will.
mircea_popescu: not like the average "middle class" (in his mind only) argentine has any other resources besides renting out an apartment and expecting govt payola for his university "education". neither of which look too good at the moment.
asciilifeform: who are the renters?
mircea_popescu: ~everyone. this is the profile of middle class argentinian family : unemployed man que es letrado (=with a law degree, never practiced) + homemaker and their teenaged 2.2 kids, living off a) the man's income from governmental sinecures + the woman's income from her parents' appointed dowry in the shape of real estate. this is it.
mircea_popescu: they have ~500k units privately held by ~3mn owners in bizarro clan arrangements, and virtually no commercial rental market to speak of.
asciilifeform: sooo... they rent apt with... the income from their inherited apt ..?
mircea_popescu: no, they own one and rent another.
asciilifeform: well yes
asciilifeform: but why.
mircea_popescu: because they're about as bright as earthworms ?

mircea_popescu: i guess they must.
asciilifeform: iirc mats is one
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform oh were you asking who pays the rents ?
mircea_popescu: working class argentines, principally, who live about 6-8 to a 500sqft apt.
mircea_popescu: these can be workers hoping to make it in the great urban village with its supposed "vida de noche" etc. they were defrauded.
mircea_popescu: these can also be students hoping to acquire the official letters patent and become middle class
mircea_popescu: they were also defrauded.

mircea_popescu: anyway, leaving appearance aside, his position is shockingly idiotic. on one hand he gives away the stuff that matters (yes, for god damn sure most of human population, of either sex, gender, race, ethnicity, whatever belongs in bondage. doh) in exchange for not exactly clearly what the fuck, not like rando progre attention whore is now going to be best pals with him and blow him.
mircea_popescu: "oh, yarvin said he doesn't think blacks are born slaves ?!?! OMG WHERE DOES HE LIVE I WANNA DO A LOAD OF HIS LAUNDRY!!!"
asciilifeform: in exchange, probably, for 'reasonably quiet'
mircea_popescu: stupid deal.
mircea_popescu: who wants to trade the undefined upside for a fixed payment ? fuck that, inverse insurance, really ?
phf: asciilifeform: well, like mircea_popescu said above it's not about thiel, it's about whether or not he gets to hang out with rando progre attention whores. of course it doesn't work that way and i don't know why he would want to, but i wouldn't be surprised if in his mind it does. my impression is that he's visibly trying to morph from stormfront "must read litrecha" section to a kind of "let's discuss human nature, surely we all agree"
mircea_popescu: but he doesn't have either the intellectual werewithal nor the knowledge base.
mircea_popescu: it's the worst possible move.
mircea_popescu: then again i guess humanity is principally defined by a propensity to make the worst possible move.
mircea_popescu: hence the whole "nobody could have predicted" shtick.
asciilifeform: btw stormfront on shortwave was pretty great.
mircea_popescu: last time i listened to radio i was like 15.
asciilifeform: (the talker died some years ago)
asciilifeform: https://outernet.is/tech << entirely unrelated, and lulzy, and i do dare suspect that they read the l0gz
asciilifeform: ^ arbitrary crud over satellite, but the receiver is the familiar rtl-sdr, that everyone already has.

mircea_popescu: why do you think read logs ?
asciilifeform: iirc we suggested this very method, at one time.
mircea_popescu: not terribly counterintuitive is it ?
phf: i figured out how archive.is is doing their archiving by the way, i'm taking a stab at implementing it
mircea_popescu: prompted by all this discussion, i find "More recently, Land has been a primary theorist and the namer of the Dark Enlightenment, a neoreactionary movement that opposes egalitarianism. The Dark Enlightenment supplies philosophical underpinnings to the alt-right."
mircea_popescu: i had no idea ? we're not the only anti-egalitarians out there ?
mircea_popescu: guy's blog is even active, apparently.
mircea_popescu: !#s xenosystems.net
asciilifeform: loads of these.
asciilifeform: for years now.
asciilifeform: oooold noose.
mircea_popescu: o wait, we were actually linked at some point ?
mircea_popescu: did anyone ever invite the fellow over ?
pete_dushenski: http://archive.is/tqQBL << 'new yorker' soils pants in face of trump, tmsr, other t-words. blames nazis, obv. bit of a snore really.
mircea_popescu would muchly appreciate a crash course in dark enligthement from the very horse's mouth.
asciilifeform: iirc we tried to get the horse here
mircea_popescu: a we did ?
pete_dushenski: a 'dark enlightenment' character by the name of 'alrenous' also found his way to the contravex comments for a while. bought a year-and-a-half ago now. decent enough to carry a convo but hardly limitless depth there.
mircea_popescu: phf that's pretty major. how does he do it then ?
pete_dushenski: s/bought/bout. lol.
phf: they are using Qt webkit integration, either through a hacked up version of phantomjs, or something handwritten. there's enough hooks in qt, that you can figure out what was loaded, where it got stored in local cache and where it's being used.
phf: phantomjs out of the box is almost there, except it doesn't give you locations to where page dependencies were stored in local cache. but the approach ensures that anything that can be rendered using a modern browser can also be archived
mircea_popescu: "Victorious third world struggles, so long as they have been successfully localized, do not lead to realistic post-capitalist achievements, and certainly not to post-patriarchal ones, since the conversation of the form of the nation state is itself enough to guarantee the reinsertion of a society into the system of inhibited synthesis. For as long as the dynamic of guerrilla war just leads to new men at the top . . . History
mircea_popescu: will continue to look bleak. For it is only when the pervasive historical bond between masculinity and war is broken by effective feminist violence that it will become possible to envisage the uprooting of the patriarchal endogamies that orchestrate the contemporary world order . . . But the only conceivable end of Kantianism is the end of modernity, and to reach this must foster new Amazons in our midst"
mircea_popescu: and suddenly /me is very disinterested in nick land's ideas.

mircea_popescu: of the us courtly sort.

ben_vulpes: stealth boat? really?

mircea_popescu: shinohai ok that bitfinex stuff is hysterical.
mircea_popescu recalls the not so distant days a coupla years ago when these imbeciles were masquerading as bidnismen with suits and secretaries and who is mp./
asciilifeform: wait, they stopped?!
shinohai: I guess the token scheme isn't working as planned.

mircea_popescu: anyone can explain how the cryptoart "purveroys of fine art papeer wallets" can afford to blow what looks like a >10k budget on google advertising ?
mircea_popescu: this is the first time i hear of non-starving yet un-famous graphical artists doing a lot of quality work for no upfront fee of their own, anarcho-syndicalist volition.
mircea_popescu: it's fucking absurd.
mircea_popescu: "Donald Trump gained on Hillary Clinton among American voters this week, cutting her lead nearly in half despite a string of women accusing him of unwanted sexual advances and the furor over his disputed claims that the election process is rigged, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll released on Friday."
mircea_popescu: aka deese putins dun understand how teh our democracy works!
asciilifeform: eh they print these to revv up turnout for the kpussa.
asciilifeform: 'oh noez we might luuus'
mircea_popescu: teh libertards are basically playing twister in the "situation room"
mircea_popescu: 63% think he raped someone at some point ; 62% want him to be president. presumably the missing 1% doesn't like the dearth of pics ?
asciilifeform: 'he worries that the lack of trust is dangerous. It is one thing to not trust government, but quite another to doubt the election process. “Then the entire premise of democracy comes into question,” she said.'

jhvh1: shinohai: The operation succeeded.
mircea_popescu: (the pic is from the al smith diner, yest. this is a derpy thing trying to get the candidates to roast each other for catholic charities. ny libertard "elites" are very excited today about the fact that trump walked in not giving the slightest shit about their mores, and eschewed what in manhattan passes for "humour", aka http://trilema.com/2014/parody-is-not-there-for-you-cancerous-fags-to-try-and-hide-your-cancer-behind-it/
shinohai: So it appears the Russian Foreign Affairs Website was sorta hacked by the jester.
mircea_popescu: it's fucking incredible just how bad trump's speech writer was, by the way. dude's a reality tv star, like that jenner chick or whatever, you'd expect he'd come prepared to kill it.
