phf: once they figured "grabbing pussy" doesn't work, they reluctantly switched to this whole "journalistic work" thing. what the hell yo gotta try everything once you know?
mircea_popescu: but how could grabbing pussy not have worked!!11
mircea_popescu: putin influenced teh grab.
mircea_popescu: o wow check this out, they even got the ayatollah out of the mothball closet!
mircea_popescu: incidentally, anyone actually looked into the "so called judge", james robart ? turns out he's a proper judge as opposed to the glorified court clerks the us has been replacing the judgeship with ; pretty famous in seattle for tearing down seattle's ban on strip clubs.
mircea_popescu: (pro tip : if your girl's comfortable taking shoes to bed, i've probably seen her naked before you have.)
phf: amusingly enough, the consensus among local nordics (swedes, norgewians and danes so far) is that "pussy grabbing" is just an obvious, if an extreme reaction to the american political correctness insanity
phf: so even the "nodic" allies are not buying the narrative
mircea_popescu: which it exactly is neh ?
mircea_popescu: try this experiment, see what it'd take to entice male randomly chosen to grab woman. even if from behind.
mircea_popescu: it'll be a degree of magnitude cheaper to get same fellow to sucker punch someone.
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes turns out danielpbarron is working the daylights out of mz lustt eh ? :D

asciilifeform: eh it looks quite like the others
asciilifeform: iirc mircea_popescu had a fully native ro version.

asciilifeform: not much info about most of these, typically 1-2 d00dz involved in making, and a few hundred -- sold.
asciilifeform: jungle industry.
phf: right right
phf: unrelatedly i got allegro's CLIM2 running (on an allegro). it's significantly faster than mcclim, mostly because it uses a MOTIF subtrate, which also means that it's even ugglier, and also otherwise prehistoric
phf: it looks like the codebase is entirely licensed from symbolics, and there are leftover, possibly operational bits, that talked directly to x11 (with "genera" and "(c) symbolics" all over it), at some point allegro added a subtrate layer, that they called silica, which at the moment can do a motif or a windows nt backends.
asciilifeform: phf: imho it is of purely historical interest -- just like the other smbx material
phf: it's no problem, i have a plan, i'm going to sell all my computing hardware and from then on do all my work from an ipad
asciilifeform: iirc you gotta lose pgp key first!111

asciilifeform: hanbot: there are possible broad classes of diddled rng that will result in trivially breakable keys, but not phuctorable in the usual sense (without my knowing the trick)
asciilifeform: there are also several known classes of ~naturally~ occurring 'sad prime', and some unknown number of unknown such classes.
asciilifeform: plenty of room for alchemy.

ben_vulpes: i did some amount of reading, sought confirmation
asciilifeform: while we're on the subj, i will say that reading from just ~one~ centralized rng, is braindamaged;

asciilifeform: ('slave clock' in turn is an illustration of specificity-of-diddling. say you do not want to run the thing at the default clock, because you suspect that enemy rented the flat below yours and is microwaving your box, not only penetrating the shields but boiling your tea for you, etc. and you want to run at a different, unknown to him, frequency. well -- you can.)

mircea_popescu: but in any case - stomping into the ground anyone with "protests" is certainly the moral imperative of the age. to quote the left's own agitprop.
asciilifeform: the folx 'with the guns and training' were raped by washington (shay's rebellion), by hoover (bonus army), by johnson (vietnam), by bush/obummer (iraq bonus withdrawal, retroactive, evictions, dekulakizations.) somehow.
mircea_popescu: well yeah. the veterans usually get fucked, from rome onwards.
asciilifeform: the 1 time they didn't, was the winter palace thing.
mircea_popescu: which is this ?
asciilifeform: ww1 vets of ru, 1917.
mircea_popescu: how exactly didn't they get the same baculum ?
asciilifeform: 'civil war' != 'go home sad'

mircea_popescu: this is a deal ? because why, they "got married" ? tyvm.
mircea_popescu: they didn't go home happy.

mircea_popescu: you're only plumbing to get paid, it's not your fucking physiological function after all!

mircea_popescu: i dunno about that. ww1 veterans got gold ? what gold did they get ?
mircea_popescu: you understand the ancient conception of war ? you raise a bunch of men, you go the next town over, you beat up all the guys, this is the work ; you fuck all the women and drink all the booze, this is the party (like what they do in sane jurisdiction during college games, the winning team gets the naked cheerleaders of tghe losers') ; then all the gold found on the premises is melted into one single thing and it is poured in

asciilifeform: quite likely there are folx in rural ru still shitting in toilets from reichstag to this day.
asciilifeform: i suspect that modern folx see war as a snore at least partly because there is not so much that is to be carted away. killing, e.g., usg troops, is pest control. cockroaches - don't have gold.
mircea_popescu: this is very much so.

mircea_popescu: well they were pretty shitty rifles.
asciilifeform: it was the first swallow of the post-eisenhower spring.
asciilifeform: (which birthed f35 et al.)
mircea_popescu: pretty much yeah
mircea_popescu: if it weren't for the needs of us industry to feel important and relevant, war'd have been fought with ak-47 on both sides.
mircea_popescu: allowing the ru to superiorily lulz at teh orcs.
asciilifeform: by some accounts, good share of the actual 2way fire exchanges, ~were~ with ak.
asciilifeform: vietnam is a fascinating treasury of lulz, and quite well-documented. how, for instance, the command was mainly occupied with question of how to actually make the conscripts fight instead of 'travail arabe' imitation (consisting of retreat and shots fired for sound effect)
asciilifeform: they settled on physically marooning the cannon fodder behind enemy lines, with chopper. hence that vehicle becoming iconic of the period.
mircea_popescu: aha. otherwise dumbest thing ever, really, chopper as battle machine ?!
mircea_popescu: why not those idiotic tank on stilts things from holywood "fiction"
asciilifeform: they were cannonfodder-inserters first, gun platform -- distant second.
asciilifeform: the latter works, in all fairness, quite well against folx with ~0 air defense.
asciilifeform: (iirc, most airframes lost, at least according to Official histories, were accounted for by mechanical wear)
shinohai: <<< pornstar facial recognition, actually kinda neat
thestringpuller: asciilifeform: dulap has been down for like a month now?
thestringpuller: pete_dushenski: your node went down recently it looks like
thestringpuller: as of current looks like there are no TRB nodes responding
thestringpuller: (except deedbot)
shinohai: mimisbrunnr is up
thestringpuller: i can't find the IP in the logs
asciilifeform: thestringpuller: it's up, and even the heathen survey thing sees it
asciilifeform: thestringpuller: problem is on your end
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform it's not possible to have "0 air defense" to the level of making it safe for helicopter.
mircea_popescu: a hunting rifle suffices.
thestringpuller: asciilifeform: weird heathen survey connects on my VPN machine but not from my local network?
thestringpuller: but don't thinkt that'd be problem ~_~
mircea_popescu: shinohai works swimmingly, identified all my social media bots.
asciilifeform: anyone other than thestringpuller has trb node that can't hear dulap ?
shinohai: I can see it, and yes 21co sees it as well
thestringpuller: ah yea. and I can hear it through proxy, but not directly from network
asciilifeform: thestringpuller: out of curiosity-- what isp
thestringpuller: no. "UVerse"
asciilifeform: what ~can~ you connect to? zoolag?
asciilifeform: how about mircea_popescu's node
thestringpuller: i can connect to deedbot
thestringpuller: haven't tried MP-node
asciilifeform: thestringpuller: what does your build look like ?
shinohai: oh god 4g lte
asciilifeform: thestringpuller: one other thing: is there a prb node also on your lan? it might have led to malleus banhammering of your ip.
asciilifeform: (supposing you're behind a nat)
thestringpuller: cycled my modem, seems to have fixed it, if albeit temporarily...
asciilifeform: thestringpuller: if you're interested in a perma-cure, plz consider answering my qs
thestringpuller: it's built on Debian Jessie frozen circa mid 2015 (except for sakurity updates)
thestringpuller: no PRB nodes on the LAN
asciilifeform: thestringpuller: this wouldn't be the first isp that tried to monkey with the naked bits , nor the last
thestringpuller: only a matter of time before some ISP blocks all outgoing 8333 traffic
asciilifeform: thestringpuller: most wireless carriers in usa -- already do afaik
thestringpuller: and so the war goes on.
thestringpuller: thx for your help asciilifeform

asciilifeform: unless you have some peculiar reason for using this distro - throw it out.
asciilifeform: get a known-working one.
thestringpuller: habit. i'm likely going to nuke this one for gentoo.
shinohai: gentoo definitely solves a lot of headaches
thestringpuller: it's time consuming tho, but what good things aren't?
shinohai: It isn't bad really. You can test drive in a chroot until you have time to build actual kernel.
