mircea_popescu: nice find mod6
mircea_popescu: trinque it's not "didn't work". in the economy of the narcissist mind lashing out at untouchable target never is about ~the target~.
mircea_popescu: which is why stories about "the aliens" always have in clinical practice a little coda about one's father in law or w/e.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform aha, until someone deigns to rein in the html soup and implement one...
mircea_popescu: (of course as far as the spec goes, the bot saves archive.is + base64 blobs of all pages, so there is that, as inconvenient as it is)
mircea_popescu: pete_dushenski nice qntra.
mircea_popescu: http://qntra.net/2017/01/fuck-white-people-pack-of-native-chicagoans-torture-captive-white-boy/ << lmao. did they hate him because handicapped (utterly natural impulse, this, btw) or because trump won ?
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes any chance of getting last articles and last comments on your sidebar ?
mircea_popescu: in other lulz, https://archive.is/qhUdp (trump meets with conde nast, new york times can barely contain its desperate enthusiasm "see ? we are still relevant! mp was wrong!!11"
mircea_popescu: in other lulz, "In 2008, the three broadcast networks, in their nightly news programs, devoted over the entire year a total of three hours and 40 minutes to issues reporting (defined as independent coverage of election issues, not arising from candidate statements or debates). In 2016, that plummeted to a grand total of just 36 minutes."
mircea_popescu: and that "entire year" is 365*24*60=525600 minutes ; NOT prime-time minutes. if you only count those, it's been 0.
mircea_popescu: us state media managed to catch up with the usg's dept of human feeding's record : hamburger with meat ~70 ppm, news with meat ~70 ppm, it's all good and all the same.
mircea_popescu: "Would it matter if the mainstream media did a better job? Or do we live in a post-truth age in which we are so distrusted that our investigations will be dismissed, if they are seen at all? Im not sure, but we must at least try."

trinque: that isn't registered
mircea_popescu: trinque aha, it just returns 0 yeah.

mircea_popescu: netmonk now you can !!up yourself. and how's the soul of the internet doing ?
Framedragger: btw trinque i don't think my gpg key has all the associated ratings in your wot.deedbot.org wwwtron. but mebbe the latter isn't finished anyway, so i'm jumping ahead of myself :)
netmonk: strange i cannot decode the message
trinque: netmonk: might you have used the wrong key ID?

trinque: Framedragger: I decided to eat a beach ball whaddayawant
mircea_popescu: trinque how does it transform a short fp into the whole thing ? "15F6BC08DC5EC056" is insecure enough.
trinque: jk, lemme set the thing to regen per hour
trinque: mircea_popescu: however gpg does; I'm just passing it as argument to --recv-key
Framedragger: amazing phraseologism

netmonk: master key
netmonk: !!register 0x62F6E94CB8BEC891

mircea_popescu: !!key mircea_popescu
mircea_popescu: me too.
trinque: mircea_popescu: is there a setting for that? otherwise gonna have to wait a bit
mircea_popescu: in gpg you mean ? nah, and i wouldn't trust it anyway. ok to wait, it waited for a year before masochist guy found the rake in grass to step on
trinque: would it be a terrible breach of ethics to help this guy re-register?
mircea_popescu: nah, seeing how a) it's the first time and b) he's nobody anyway
mircea_popescu: re-registering a nick with ratings on it can't be done, but unrated they're all equally the same.
netmonk: man i will have to load my master private key
netmonk: wich is offline :(
mircea_popescu: netmonk well alternatively you could also know what your policies are and follow them neh ?
netmonk: why the bot didnt find the subkey used for encryption
trinque: it used the key you told it.
trinque: we're not much about "do what I mean" around heah
trinque: netmonk: I've deleted your registration; feel free to re-reg when you have the right key in hand

netmonk: im not much into gpg stuff

mircea_popescu: that's like saying "i'm not much into clean linens". your personal taste in the matter is a relatively secondary concern. the primary thing is they don't let you inside oxford unless you wash.

mircea_popescu: it's not calvesford.

netmonk: gpg --list-keys --fingerprint ?
mircea_popescu: 40 byte fingerprint, yes.
netmonk: space included ?
netmonk: and which one ? masterkey of encrypting subkey ?
mircea_popescu: im not even sure what this difference is supposed to mean, but anyway. my own key uses the master and i've not had any problems, so there's that.

trinque: because there is nothing beneath! fucks sake
trinque: can't just talk to wpa_supplicant no
asciilifeform: trinque: you can tell that d00d took 0 trouble to read, e.g., the pogo archives
asciilifeform: (y'know, where i stuffed bootable linux kernel + userland + trb into 5MB with 0 drepperola or poetteringola)
asciilifeform: on a godforsaken motherfucking toy arm.
trinque: aha, or your or my gentoo recipes
asciilifeform: 'Gentoo can PRACTICALLY be improved by slowly & surely eliminating it from Masamune. There are plenty of people who can, and have written lisp bootloaders. The only problem with this (and all related projects) is that they're incomplete, due to lacking a working lisp environment one can integrate with. People write code using the _stable_ abstractions at hand.'
asciilifeform: you can tell here that gabriel_laddel either does not know, or care, what sort of herculean labour is involved in undoing years of design braindamage
asciilifeform: how or why, for instance, it took most of a year to arrive at a 100% static and embeddable trb
trinque: all I can say is, take part in the forum. it'll rid you of that american megalomania, or get rid of you, real quick.

asciilifeform: also gabriel_laddel inspired me to invent new type of aircraft propulsion system. take ordinary house, and SLOWLY & SURELY excavate a few km of earth from underneath it !
asciilifeform: who needs wings, engines, etc.
mircea_popescu: alf's scathing is getting ever more acidic week by week.
asciilifeform: eh i had more than the appropriate measure of sympathy for the poor bugger because laboured under the impression that he, fwiw, was a monster i had an indirect hand in creating
asciilifeform: but all patience is finite.
mircea_popescu: so ?
mircea_popescu: this is ridoinculous, the paternal fallacy. "oh he sucks but i made him". doh ? do you do the same with code, also ?
asciilifeform: it is ridiculous, and i swore it off.
mircea_popescu: more sympathy by a large margin is owed to the things no one made, than to the suspected fruits of anyone's loins.
asciilifeform: i dunno how mircea_popescu cuts the knot of distinguishing (say, among his pets) 'slow learner' from 'militant ignoramus'
asciilifeform: afaik it is an open problem, and reduces to 'set knob to arbitary place you can live with'
mircea_popescu: anyway, i'm not entirely up to speed re sad state of lisp world. i expect it's in the shitter, but not exactly clear how. is there any merit to the nude assertion that "lisp is a shittier thing than trb, because trb at least has SOMETHING that can be made into a musl ; whereas lisp does not" ?
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform death distinguishes. i literally beat them until they either die or reform.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: the 'lisp trb' is sussman's 'scheme83' chip.
asciilifeform: published design, and not only design, but the mask generator (runs on, i shit thee not, itself, also)
asciilifeform: it is slightly older than asciilifeform .
mircea_popescu: so lisp exists, as a factual matter.
mircea_popescu: (it is, believe it or not, entirely not evident from the activity of "lisp people" whether it does or does not exist, the object of their work/preoccupation.)
ben_vulpes: mircea_popescu: clarify "what moves"?
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: in this century 'lisp people' tend to resemble holyromanempire's 'roman people'
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes "if ch approximates an immutable datastruct over the interval lastvisit - currentvisit".
trinque: ^ aka took me a minute to find g_l's reply to me
mircea_popescu: in practice i come to understand now, after thousands of articles / years blogging, that in fact the frontend to a blog should really be as close to a... vdiff patch! as practicable.
trinque: which was probably intentional on his part
mircea_popescu: and let's pass in silence over the circumstance that i'd have never figured that out if i kept blogging by itself.
asciilifeform: 'At one point in time I reviewed ALL CL codebases.' << d00d read & fit-in-head all of macsyma ? i'd luv to see.
ben_vulpes: smells rather strongly of "read" == "rolled eyeballs over"
trinque: it could be said that insofar as the CL standard does not specify a machine, it is drastically incomplete
trinque: and that lack leads directly to the present day diaspora, and the ghettos, on other systems
mircea_popescu: the idea being c passively specifies the machine ?
asciilifeform: considering that the standard was a product of a truce between competing lispm vendors, it is not mega-surprise. but trinque is right.
trinque: mircea_popescu: indeed
asciilifeform: trinque: c fails even at this, consider the atrocity of 'endianism', word sizes, and 101 other variations that break a c proggy
mircea_popescu: yeah i was thinking... hm.
mircea_popescu: it does not specify it in the sane sense. but his contention is not baseless.
trinque: then the failure of outer specification makes the inner nigh meaningless
asciilifeform: trinque: zetalisp (nonstandardized but exceptionally well-documented smbx lispm lisp) ~was~ specified from low-level machine model
ben_vulpes: http://btcbase.org/log/2017-01-07#1598150 << i would be happy to stand a trinquebot up for you

asciilifeform: trinque: it was an interesting document, at one point i linked it here
ben_vulpes: trinque: any action on recording all message lines or is that a patch i should cook?
trinque: please do if you like
trinque: but lets discuss; I've got idears
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes what'd i script it in, lisp ?
ben_vulpes: mircea_popescu: sql, lisp if you like
mircea_popescu: great opportunity for me to learn / everyone to lol at my learning lisp!
mircea_popescu: how much for a year's worth of hosting it + the occasional reboot ?
ben_vulpes: ooh pricing exercises
ben_vulpes: let's say 2 btc, and that'll cover the patch to record all protocol lines as well
mircea_popescu: the patch to who ?
ben_vulpes: the patch to the trinquebot
mircea_popescu: yes but to ?
ben_vulpes: currently trinquebot only logs vanilla messages in its channels
mircea_popescu: and what are protocol lines ?
ben_vulpes: not eg privmsg and action
trinque: dunno if that's needed for this
trinque: it does log privmsg
ben_vulpes: ah that's right
trinque: privmsg is used for both channel messages and pm
trinque: what it doesn't log is every protocol line that goes to/fro; it logs parsed message lines only
ben_vulpes: mhm. it's the ACTION lines that it doesn't catch.
ben_vulpes: protocol lines include server banners etc
mircea_popescu: ah. the way i was thinking this'd work would be : the bot answers to any lines where its name is mentioned ; and i can update its "brain" with a !^ url style command. whereby it replaces its "ai" code with the content of the file.
trinque: well, doesn't parse. those are still privmsg iirc
mircea_popescu: i've no interest in action and other such
ben_vulpes: oh then it'd work for you as-is
mircea_popescu: nice. so as an example, my first task would be to figure out how to instruct it to respond to messages only if there've been less than 12 lines spoken the past 15 minutes. that sort of thing.
trinque: ben_vulpes: what I do need to do is release logbot-service.genesis
mircea_popescu: subquestion : does teh esteemed lordship find itself inclined to tolerate the exercise ?
trinque: and you'd extend that class for this
ben_vulpes: trinque: aye
asciilifeform: !#s popescutron
ben_vulpes: mircea_popescu: i'd rather read your experiments in lisp than php
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes nah the idea is, bot will attempt to learn from conversation. with, eg, you.
asciilifeform: i had this itch 2+ yrs ago but my evil plan was to make it simply eat the collected works of mircea_popescu rather than explicit rules
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform see, the sentiment is mutual - i want mine to eat you lot.
ben_vulpes: mircea_popescu: i mean to say "if it gets mircea_popescu to write and think in lisp its a worthwhile use of lines"
asciilifeform: theoretically ought to work on anybody with large body of text. in practice, certain text works better than other
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes so therefore considering that you don't have to rewrite trinque's bot nor is a vps more than a few bux a month, dja got a counteroffer ? :D
asciilifeform: (best if you have 'hooks', in this case infrequent words and phrases to latch onto)
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform the idea is not without merit ; but i was gonna try an interactive slut.
asciilifeform: also neato
mircea_popescu: best i can tell the two aren't blocking each other in any way.
trinque: ben_vulpes: so sounds like we should still consider doing the patch for raw messages, such that we don't have to build this atop out-of-date logbot-service
trinque: I can give it some time next week
mircea_popescu: ill go harvesting parantheses in the meanwhile so i have a few stacks
trinque: deploying other people's code into a logbot service sounds pretty UCI to me
trinque: I like it.
mircea_popescu: chipping that way
trinque afk for a while
ben_vulpes: mircea_popescu: counteroffer impending, rescuing dog food from child
mircea_popescu: but... why
mircea_popescu: gotta be cheaper than usual diet.
ben_vulpes: nanners are pretty cheap

Framedragger: luckily enough i realized i was on hash before i could quickly set up a blog in haskell and start writing stupid words about the singularity
Framedragger: iirc same evening included me "really getting" dark side of the moon, "like really getting it you know?"; but eh, it was beautiful so can't complain.
mircea_popescu: and speaking of canticle : anyone looking to write a sf piece in the a c clarke vein willing to model what'd happen if a lead comet the size of ceres showed up on a slow orbit ? at first, comet observed somewhere past kuipier belt, it's slow and dim. then, is it a comet or an asteroid ? then, measurements indicate it's much too dense. then, in timescales ever narrowing, its orbit turns out to be unsafe. then, as it collapses
mircea_popescu: into the sun (which ideally should be done "safely", ie, perpendicular to planetary plane and away from earth-at-the-time, it... moderates it! so the sun cools. which is significant. story goes on.
mircea_popescu: correctly modelling "what would happen to sun if chunk of lead hit it" is more of a "learn qm exercise" than most resources available.
mircea_popescu: Framedragger i "really got it" coupla nights ago, out walking, splendid full moon with abendstar in opposition. and it was SO OBVIOUSLY a fucking planet, lit by the star in part that i really had nfi what people had been doing prior. it's fucking obvious omg!
mircea_popescu: not like you can't SEE the whole sphere, and the dark part is dim but visible.
phf: asciilifeform: because i have a paper by shrobe from 1982 vlsi conference (i could only find a hardcopy, been meaning to scan it), that explicitly says that data path generator was written for mit cadr, and that it opts the DPL code out of a gui environment. i haven't seen complete listing for DPL for the cpu either.

mircea_popescu: incidentally, /me is not a great fan of tattoos, by which i mean the meaningless optional bs, not the actual tribal/prison stuff. however, from a purely aesthetic perspective, isn't there something fundamentally wrong with the blocky ones (ie, the ones with large monocolor chunks) ?

phf: because ultimately chip was manufactured out of DPL files (described in aim-598) the whole deflayout/defregtype/defconst thing. i haven't seen ~that~ published anywhere
mircea_popescu: Framedragger pet plus!
asciilifeform: phf: i excavated my binder and found the item you had just linked. where dpl is described in approx same level of detail as eurisko's 'rtl' was in the lenatleaks thing. but i am now beginning to suspect that it got 'symbolicsized', e.g., subsumed into the properties they licensed from mit
asciilifeform: and remains buried in indiana jones vault.
asciilifeform: also it would astonish me if the build process did NOT depend on having a working cadr around
asciilifeform: as the scheme83 chip was never put into commercial production and afaik existed never more than in handful qty.
phf: well, shrobe went on to work at smbx, and used the evolution of the same stack to make an ivory. i wouldn't be surprised that's where the licensing went
asciilifeform: iirc one of the 'death of symbolics' treatises went on at length about the follow of them NOT having made any attempt to market their chip synthesis stack as a commercial offering
phf: (he i think published another paper on the subject of making lisp cpus, but with smbx as his @)
asciilifeform: i have that paper. it was ~2pgs and about as useful as their sales brochure.
phf: right, i think i was going to source it for completeness, but never bothered because of abstract.
asciilifeform: it was not a wholly bad read, had chip die porn etc.
asciilifeform: incidentally did phf ever post any of his smbx finds ?
phf: i have a second trip scheduled for second week of march to finish the process
asciilifeform: *about the folly of them
asciilifeform: phf: neato
phf: i'm treating it as an avocation, so i'm resigned to glacier speeds that all these people require
asciilifeform: phf: no rush, it is not as if we had a chip fab in which to make clones, or even particularly want to make clone (i have 0 interest in perpetuating 20 years of mit undergrad young cocklet crapolade code)
phf: problem is that our man never really had the code (certainly no "rights" to code), since i think that the asset split went something like "you get the body and you get the soul", and the guy with the soul is keeping it in his garage to "turn into millions one day one i retire" sort of thing.
asciilifeform: some details of the low level arch might be interesting though.
asciilifeform: all i got, for the most part, is what is in the wall-o-deadtree manuals, and what i gleaned from reversing 'snap4' binary in ida.

asciilifeform: the other d00d, who asciilifeform and phf both met, is schmidt, and he's a salt-of-the-earth mechanic sort of fella
asciilifeform: 0 theory.
asciilifeform: there is also a 3rd d00d, kalman reti, who i have not met nor know anyone who has
asciilifeform: he's got the emulator src.
asciilifeform: them 3, plus the 'customer' (handler) at fort somethingorother, makes all of modern-day symbolics corp.
phf: well, result of my work will be basically one step removed from useless :} no need for a logic analyzer, but still a gargantuan effort to make sense of architecture. smbx has opposite problem from scheme stack. there's the DPL, but there aren't any AIM-514 equivalents
asciilifeform: at one point there was a probate judge involved also

mircea_popescu: gabriel_laddel_p well, let's put it this way - not a page of symbolics supposedly superb documentation did make it to republican coffers after all.
gabriel_laddel_p: I contend that the current "lisp community" is a bunch of fundamentally broken people, and that symbolics was a bunch of fundamentally broken people, but they're broken in different ways.
mircea_popescu: anyway, entertaining the thing as you describe at face value : if indeed your concern is a sort of bastardization as conceptually constructible from the foregoing, then the correct move is to build your masamune on musl and attach a license that forbids the empire (such as for instance the trb license ; or else one stating to use must be in l2, or rated by you, or any such thing). this will mostly protect you both technically
mircea_popescu: and legally, and i estimate the barriers would hold.
mircea_popescu: then alf can run the thing ; and altman can't run the thing, both because he doesn't know how to and because he doesn't see any point in trying.

a111: Logged on 2017-01-08 02:07 phf: i still have an issue of global namespace for vpatches. i'm not yet sure that they need namespacing. it's sort of inconsequential for when you do your own press, but in terms of permanent urls you have the first come first served problem..
mircea_popescu: so that it's trb_mod6_doesgirlsonboats.vpatch vs vtron_phf_addsnamespaces.vpatch. no conflict possible.
mircea_popescu: pete_dushenski verifyall actually rechecks the chain. takes potentially hours.
mircea_popescu: phf ben_vulpes : it won't corrupt anything if the berkley db is ran in "detached" mode, which it prolly should be. i don't recall if we put this in the trb or not.
adlai: http://btcbase.org/log/2017-01-06#1597363 << please excuse the nitpick, but given this thread, 'tree' is a misnomer.
a111: Logged on 2017-01-06 06:36 mircea_popescu: anyway, the problem of "how to sort two patches which alter entirely disjuncts subsets of the file set" is not exactly clear. unless they declare how they prefer to be sorted.
mircea_popescu: how do you reason ?
adlai should probably provide an example instead of babbling, but: it's possible to produce distinct antecedents for the same patch
mircea_popescu: pete_dushenski fortunately nobody gives a flying fuck what esl speakers say on any topic. this is very deeply difficult for the selfsame esltards to grok, but it DOES explain why trilema is more widely read than nytimes.
pete_dushenski: linguistic sluts ftw
mircea_popescu: adlai in general, patch says who its antecedents are.
ben_vulpes: ah, the "roots" thread?
phf: the read part of the story is vapid, but the unread part is more interesting, and therefore will be completely missed by the target audience of that article: somewhere in the world, there's a corporation that can change its ~internal communications language~ because the ceo said so
mircea_popescu: no, this'd be different ; that was about adding references ~in the files~ as comments ; this is about the patches (ie, diffs)
ben_vulpes: mircea_popescu: patch says what antecedent file hashes it stemmed from, no?
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes nah, different layers.
adlai: patches state what state their antecedents must produce, but they don't commit to the antecedent itself
phf: adlai: i agree, it's a general graph, rather than a tree, has loops etc.
mircea_popescu: phf this has happened before. specifically the guy recently named in log, http://btcbase.org/log/2016-12-16#1584020
a111: Logged on 2016-12-16 13:42 mircea_popescu: incidentally, speaking of nothing in particular, everyone heard of carlos ghosn ? quite the fellow.
mircea_popescu: adlai yes, in that formulation it could be linked to the antecedent-in-file thread.
mircea_popescu: anyway, the reason it's a tree is ~because we say so~, not because in and of itself it ~is~. there's no way for a pile of code to be a tree outside of the will of the people writing code.

Framedragger: ahh. so you'd e.g. have a 'weaker' key (with a certain limited degree of trust) which could sign those kinds of abonimations. pretty elegant! (also disregard my "impression of strong wot" comment, i had misunderstood)
asciilifeform: one of the minuses imho is that it will increase the cost of ferreting out cases of http://trilema.com/2014/how-to-make-money-on-the-internet-while-pretending-you-know-what-youre-talking-about-and-accumulating-a-legion-of-mindless-followers-for-fun-and-profit/ .

mircea_popescu: who's he!
asciilifeform: the archive.is d00d.
asciilifeform: who was subcontractor for that box.
mircea_popescu: look. i dunno what set of assumptions/convictions/determinations of fact you're operating under ehre, but to be plain, the situation as observed from my chair is as follows :
mircea_popescu: a) alf wrote a first version of phuctor, which wasn't very good. this is excusable in that it was a first version, and altogether irrelevant ; b) alf's version being not very good was accidentally exposed through ordinary course of business ; c) alf got very butthurt at this circumstance, and kept whining about it in the logs ; d) having had enough of the whine at some later point, i presented him with the choice of either fi
mircea_popescu: xing his code or going away ; e) so butthurt was alf over his code being no good in some particular and not terribly relevant way, he decided to go away. this caused phuctor to be offline for about a year. f) at some later point, getting a machine in the same datacenter if memory serves, alf declared that remnants from archive.is were found i dun recall how or where. this is entirely possible, and in any case i've not invest
asciilifeform: it was absolutely not-very-good.
asciilifeform: ran in O(N^2).
asciilifeform: but you're missing a letter between c and d, which is where the hoster found out about the particular weakness and started unplugging the box.
mircea_popescu: now - wut of all of this ? maybe it was the same guy, i guess, maybe there was a conspiracy to reboot the server, i guess, maybe etcetera. i'm unconvinced nor do i see it matters any.
mircea_popescu: i guess.
asciilifeform: and granted if this had not happened, i probably would not have gotten off arse and rewritten the thing, and it would be ~useless nao.
mircea_popescu: a cheap explanation would be for instance
asciilifeform: but the perpetrator was still no friend.
mircea_popescu: holy shit check out this idiot.
mircea_popescu: a cheap explanation would be for instance - that archive people hosted in same place, and left for same reason.

mircea_popescu: well i dun think anyone's a friend, including the baker. i've not yet geiger-countered the flour.
asciilifeform: granted that i do not know, if he left, if he stayed, what role he played. at least partly because d00d is not in the wot! and never speaks in the forum.
asciilifeform: which was 100% of my complaint really.
mircea_popescu: i think i shot him an email once which he replied
mircea_popescu: o yeah, cuz i lifted the js for text selection from his site.
mircea_popescu: and iirc reported a bug or something. anyway.
asciilifeform: at any rate i did not say d00d is enemy. only 'not friend.'
asciilifeform: but 'tmsr has no friends but its army and navy' or how did it go.
mircea_popescu: right. anyway, to dispell the possible implication - it's not that i like secretly know whoever runs archive.is
mircea_popescu: i have nfi, item seems to work is the entire extent of the thing ; and i don't specifically know him to be a hitler crony, like i do specifically know archive.org to be a hitler crony.
mircea_popescu: and i see no problem with any other or only other services be used - which iirc i even said when bot spec for archival was drawn, that everyone making one should ideally use a diff service
asciilifeform: speaking of rusty infrastructure, mircea_popescu -- the link to wot on your www appears to still point to mike_c's
