asciilifeform: ic reversers sweat over cauldrons of hot acids, fiddle with ion beams, etc. but: one thing i've always wondered re subj is whether anybody's tried... microtome! then you dun care how many layers there are, and of what. just blast away the edge, and scan THAT! a few 100 atoms at a time.
asciilifeform: literally turn the problem on its side.
mircea_popescu: Framedragger either you recommended that or someone else did. i tried to watch the thing, kicked it out within ~10 minutes.

Framedragger: (iirc i had suggested elena (2011) but iirc it's of a similar colour palette hmh)
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform there's good physics why you can't have a reliable microtome.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: laser in vacuum is pretty good microtome.
asciilifeform: for solids at any rate.
asciilifeform: you want controlled ablation, not slices, here.
mircea_popescu: ah like a polisher. mebbe. it will necessarily move some of the unerlying though.
asciilifeform: do it from the ~edge~ side of the chip. and this way surface/vol. ratio favours cooling also.
mircea_popescu: even so, i'd be surprised if you get with less than 0.1% cutting induced blind spots
mircea_popescu: ie, areas where you can't now know what once lay.
asciilifeform: well that's why you do a cratefull, not 1 die.
mircea_popescu: this yes.
asciilifeform: like normal people.
mircea_popescu: do laser in supercooled xenon or some shit. anyway
mircea_popescu: afaik laser welding/cutting already happens under argon commercially.
asciilifeform: noooo you don't do this under gas. you do it under hard vacuum. so it sublimates.
mircea_popescu: you do it under gas so it cools
asciilifeform: it cools by conduction, through the die, down into the anvil.
mircea_popescu: may take you hours per chip
mircea_popescu: which means you'll end up with a complicated pile of cutters servicing one photoghrapher.

mircea_popescu: in any case should be interesting once the v model takes hold for novel-writing, and no novel is anything but what it was meant to be : a tree.
asciilifeform: also can't resist asking -- wai there is no diddletron in the 'pink' seat.
mircea_popescu: the "authorship" bullshit / englithment fiction really went as far as it could go. in fact, a lot further than it should have ever went.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i dunno ; i suspect poys die with their hymen intact in that universe
mircea_popescu: and schoolchildren believe "female genital mutilation" === defloration.
mircea_popescu: (yes, it's boys and poys, because boy comes from blue not the fucking other way around, what terrorism is this.)

phf: i feel like you talked about the patch before, what does it do?
asciilifeform: nops out the pci vendorid check on post.
asciilifeform: this was one of those tard bioses that bans 3rdparty peripherals.
phf: oh that's crafty. so you just plop atheros in the same slot as where intel wifi sits? it looked pretty "standard" the way it was sitting there
asciilifeform: https://ae01.alicdn.com/kf/HTB16LIuIVXXXXXqXFXXq6xXFXXXW/Wireless-PCI-E-Atheros-AR5BXB6-AR5424-Wireless-Wifi-Mini-PCIe-wlan-card-for-IBM-T60-T60p.jpg << them
asciilifeform: if you get a half-size card, you oughta also get the aluminum extender clip. (about $1)
asciilifeform: so it'll stay put.
asciilifeform: (alternatively, '3m' doublesides stickeytape!)
asciilifeform: btw this bios contains the infamous 'computrace' rootkit. the cure for which is 1) don't switch it on 2) don't run winblowz
asciilifeform: (it is winblowz-only, was then, and afaik to this day even remains.)
asciilifeform: afaik all lenovo machines ship with it in.
trinque: the claim made is that you can "switch it off permanently" iirc
trinque: I don't buy it
asciilifeform: trinque: it is fairly ham-handed, patches NTLDR
phf: that passed by me, and it looks insane :o
asciilifeform: and probably quite unnecessary in more recent iron, which has the intel fritzchip
phf: "The system works by periodically reporting back to a central authority. In the event of theft, the central authority can instruct the resident agent to wipe all information as a security measure, or to track the whereabouts of the system, to help recover the stolen items via subsequent law enforcement activities"
asciilifeform: phf: believe or not, asciilifeform sat on a jury once where 100% of the evidence was the computrace nonsense
asciilifeform: the vendor even flew in a flunkie
asciilifeform: somewhere in the l0gz, i told this tale.
asciilifeform: phf: i'm not a raving fan of the x60 -- can barely stand looking at the tft lcd.
asciilifeform: but i also can't recommend a better, all else equal, lappy.
asciilifeform: they're all rubbish.
asciilifeform: (going to tft from ips is a little like shitting in a hole you dug yourself, after lifetime of indoor plumbing)
phf: yeah, i'm just building a typing laptop. probably going to take it to india with me instead of main machine. can't really afford getting it stolen, and don't want to bother with proper compartmentalization
asciilifeform: then x60 is the ticket. the last, afaik, lappy where linux worked ~100%.
asciilifeform: incl. power chip.
phf: 2 hours of battery is a bit sad, but i'm not planning on "working from a coffee shop" either
asciilifeform: ask mircea_popescu where he gets stinkpad batteries.
asciilifeform: iirc he had a place.
asciilifeform: btw if you're going off on a voyage, afaik you can just as easily stick a gsm card in that slot
asciilifeform: (in place of wlan)
asciilifeform: or in the pcmcia hole, etc
asciilifeform: hey it ain't a hygienic box regardless of what you do or do not put in the holes.
asciilifeform: incidentally if this were me, i'd make a voyage-only wot key, rate it +1, then at the end, when getting back to home, sign statement 'my voyage key was uneventfully used N times and then incinerated' or 'pygmies stole my voyage key K and signed audacious forgeries F1, F2...' depending on how it went.
asciilifeform: (the latter signed -- with actual lordly key, obviously)
davout: plox to recommend lisp dead trees for beginner
asciilifeform: davout: steele's cltl2 as encyclopaedia. seibel's 'practical commonlisp'. graham (yes) 'ansi common lisp', circa 1994. keene's CLOS. 'common lisp recipes', weitz.
davout: danke schön
asciilifeform: 1 more thing
asciilifeform: not dead tree but,
asciilifeform: get CLHS and keep it on local disk, bookmarked.
phf: typically people recommend http://www.gigamonkeys.com/book/ and it's a sort of "rails for beginners" kind of book, but i think best cl option is http://www.norvig.com/paip.html. norvig's paradigms of artificial intelligence programming. it's not so much about "ai", but about some very useful symbolic algorithms, written in ~very elegant~ lisp code
asciilifeform: you can really live with ~just~ clhs.
asciilifeform: paip is quite spiffy.
asciilifeform: (and yes, ~that~ norvig. he used to be 3111117)
phf: it opens with enough of common lisp to be useful, and then goes into actual programming problems. i think it's one of the best programming books in general.
davout: asciilifeform phf thanks! i'll look into it, gonna start with clhs until i get back to a country where amazon delivers

asciilifeform: in other lulz, asciilifeform searched for nitrogen cryoseparator ~once~ , ~year ago, and now sees google ads for it every single fucking day
indiancandy: there watching u
asciilifeform: it is a lol, picture if you searched 'boeing 737' one time, and then every ad you see after that is for buying one
mircea_popescu: hey, it supports 5% of gpd growth from imaginary 7bn to imaginary 7.35bn
mircea_popescu: or w/e the random numbers are these days
asciilifeform: hey if boeing can count an instance of asciilifeform-shown-737-ad as $737price*$p-of-him-buying, and they also get to imagine that the latter is a positive number, >0, then gdp can be trillion!!!1
mircea_popescu: coming soon to a govt accounting office near you.

mod6: <+ben_vulpes> waiwut i don't remember this wine event << great steaks at this place. Mr. P. had to leave and change his suit.
mod6: Got to talk with chetty a good long while this evening too.
asciilifeform: ooooooh -- that!
mod6: This was also the first time we discussed your ideas around mem fragmentation.
mod6: Or at least, iirc we talked about it for a bit.

asciilifeform: and mike_c was skeptical, had other hypothesis, i wish i could recall ~what~
mod6: Ah, right. Yeah, I forget what his thought was there.
asciilifeform: iirc it was not fully formed. but he didn't like mine, because it was 'gut hunch', which was quite fair
asciilifeform: i miss mike_c , he was a solid d00d.
mod6: yeah, same. maybe he'll be back when he has a bit more time.
asciilifeform: iirc he barfed during the schism? so who knows.
mod6: ah. maybe so.
BingoBoingo hopes we never lose asciilifeform to child rearing
asciilifeform: if i vanish it is safe to suppose that i was killed.
davout: mircea_popescu: i didn't "pour a bottle on your head", i accidentally'd a wine ~glass~, at least that's what i remember!
mod6: yeah, your hand got away from you and knocked over a glass, which promptly went into Mr. P.'s lap.
mod6: shit happens.
davout: not like i got on my chair, and slowly poured the whole contents of the wine bottle on mircea_popescu's head while everyone was watching in horror :D
BingoBoingo: That you remember...
mircea_popescu: lol ok ok
