ben_vulpes: mod6: neat recommendation; i'm working with an abortion called 'exwm' for now
asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: ever try 'ratpoison' ?
ben_vulpes: not yet
ben_vulpes: having x windows live in emacs buffers is very low cognitive overhead
asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: it is very similar to this
asciilifeform: ( and does not conflict with it )
asciilifeform: extends same treatment to nonemacsizable proggies.
ben_vulpes: what means 'nonemacsizable'?
asciilifeform: e.g. graphical www browsers
asciilifeform: or emacses on >1 lcd panel, say
asciilifeform: or whatever else (cad, 'gimp', etc )
ben_vulpes: exwm puts the x window into an emacs buffer, so can eg C-x b opera
asciilifeform: does it work with >1 lcd ?
ben_vulpes: claims to, but i don't desire that at this moment
asciilifeform: then possibly you don't need a wm at all
asciilifeform: just have the 1 emacs frame.
ben_vulpes: 'tis the hope
asciilifeform: x worx perfectly ok sans wm
asciilifeform: you just can't resize or move the 1 window
ben_vulpes: eh, C-x 2/3 works as expected
asciilifeform: sounds like you have no possible need for an x wm on this box, then, ben_vulpes
ben_vulpes: but yes, .xinitrc does consist of `exec emacs` at the moment
erlehmann: ben_vulpes asciilifeform opinion about i3?
asciilifeform: erlehmann: intel's?
erlehmann: no, window management
erlehmann: everyone using tiling window management in my vincinity seems to end up there
erlehmann: one guy even wrote his own wm, then switched to i3
mod6: <+ben_vulpes> mod6: neat recommendation; i'm working with an abortion called 'exwm' for now << ah ok. this is all emacs related eh?
ben_vulpes: erlehmann: looks like something i'd have to learn in addition to emacs
erlehmann: at work, everyone who has a non-standard setup on GNU/linux, uses i3
asciilifeform: erlehmann: here's an algo for determining what asciilifeform thinks of an x wm :
mod6: <+asciilifeform> ben_vulpes: ever try 'ratpoison' ? << yeah, i still need to try this
ben_vulpes: mod6: aye
asciilifeform: 1) does it draw ANYTHING on the screen when it is running ?
asciilifeform: 2) does it know about mice, and take input from the mouse ?
asciilifeform: if answer to either 1, 2, or both, is 'yes' -- asciilifeform won't use.
erlehmann: i3: 1. tiling, so probably not until you order it to draw title bars. 2. focus can follow mouse and windows can float, but keyboard-only use is sensible.
erlehmann: asciilifeform you probably hate plan9
asciilifeform: so -- rubbish
asciilifeform: erlehmann: i'm not an aficionado of plan9 -- but for quite unrelated reasons
erlehmann: well, they are optional. they are used because i3 can not only tile windows, but also tab them. and float them, if you *really* want to.
asciilifeform: ( unix oughta have been strangled in the cradle, not further nurtured )
asciilifeform: erlehmann: i dun need this 'can' for anything.
asciilifeform: my wm is <100KB of c.
asciilifeform: and draws 0. and reads 0 bytes from mouse.
erlehmann: i see
asciilifeform: it does 1 job -- reshape windows.
erlehmann: this is what a friend of mine wrote: https://github.com/plomlompom/PlomWM/blob/master/plomwm.c
erlehmann: it seems way less than 100kb of c. but then there are libs.
erlehmann: it's <8k of C
mod6: <+asciilifeform> if answer to either 1, 2, or both, is 'yes' -- asciilifeform won't use. << wait... i thought you were big on a workstation that you could use... but this doesn't include a mouse?
asciilifeform: mod6: i have a mouse
asciilifeform: but not a mouse-tarded wm !!
mod6: do you use a graphical browser if needed?
asciilifeform: cad, also
asciilifeform: hence -- have mouse
mod6: if so, do you just use keybindings to navigate?
erlehmann: mod6 mouse-wm means mouse can have two modi. managing windows and managing application.
asciilifeform: but no draggable windows !!
mod6: oh, ok.
erlehmann: it's not? most i3 users have no use for draggable windows. the maemo wm (i forgot its name) also has none.
erlehmann: where do you need them?
erlehmann: mod6 did you mean „word“ or „weird“?
erlehmann: asciilifeform what do you use as shell? i use rc shell, because grammar fits in head (actually, grammar is written on man page).
erlehmann: but maybe you know better
asciilifeform: erlehmann: bash
erlehmann: no further questions then
mod6: <+erlehmann> mod6 did you mean "word" or "weird"? << the former.
erlehmann: mod6 sorry then i assumed the latter (even though the keys are right next to each other)
mod6: heheh, no worries.
mod6: i misspell a lot of things too. so there' that.
erlehmann: who of you except mp works on minigame?
ben_vulpes: diana_coman does

Framedragger: erlehmann: i like my voxels, looks nice... generalized CA, as in, you can run arbitrary programs in the space (or somesuch)?
Framedragger: i see map generators, but that's something else, i assume the subgame thing is the way towards the "generalized"/"arbitrary"
Framedragger: (from initial glance at website)
Framedragger: oh lua, cool, is that how you write those subgames?

danielpbarron unofficially works on eulora. occasionally publishes patches to the client. almost ready to publish a eulora-gentoo recipe
Framedragger: erlehmann: question #3 -- any recommendations for what to do in berlin in july? i'll be there with a few friends from 5 july (may travel to leipzig), random recommendations welcome (we'll visit the nsa tower/hill, etc)
ben_vulpes: danielpbarron: do you have an ebuild for it?
danielpbarron: what does that mean?
danielpbarron: a portage package? no. it's more of a recipe from scratch: how to install gentoo for optimal eulora
ben_vulpes: recipe for portage to make $package happen to a gentoo
trinque: btw this could be turned into a portage "set"
danielpbarron: and the way i'm writing it up, it's also a crash course on how to gentoo in general
trinque: but then you're on teh way to an ebuild anyway.
erlehmann: Framedragger each cell in minetest is potentially a lua program
erlehmann: Framedragger i can give advice, but first specify what kind of advice
erlehmann: about berlin
erlehmann: Framedragger where will you stay? type of venue / part of city?
Framedragger: good point, i'll get back to you later. it's not a well-defined request/problem in my mind. "shit to do at night in kreuzberg / east berlin" would count, including rave parties (sounds teenage-ish when i put it like that heh)
Framedragger: erlehmann: airbnb apartment, 3-4 people, possibly neukoln or thereabouts, not sure yet
erlehmann: looking for rave culture. are you some kind of rave-apologist? maybe even a gang rave!
Framedragger: funny thing is i'm not really into raves. at the same time i have a pile of high quality mdma that i now need to dispose of, because changing country. so who knows
Framedragger: erlehmann: i've been to c-base a coupla times, curious if there are any hackerspaces which are less about showing off and more about actual DIY projects etc (not sure if can meaningfully interact in the span of only a week tho, i guess)
Framedragger: so like, hackerspace stuff, nice party stuff, etc.
Framedragger is also curious if isis from tor is still in berlin, too
erlehmann: i have a single, very important berlin tourism tip. avoid airbnb (and similar things) to the strongest extent possible. there are only a few faster ways to make enemies, like putting on a police uniform and visiting rigaer straße alone in the middle of the night.
Framedragger: erlehmann: girl says "wtf, plz to elaborate" :D is that due to high degree of scams, or just the high possibility of misunderstandings? (only time i used airbnb was in morocco, but that was planned well in advance, and kinda-vetted place)
erlehmann: re scammy: read reviews and think if an airbnb host with that name really exists. it may or may not do you any harm if “sarah” never shows up and is in fact a front for some rent-seeking dude.
Framedragger: fair point, thanks
Framedragger: (there may indeed be no harm, tho)
erlehmann: furthermore, two observations, one on a systemic, one on an individual level: a) airbnb drives up rents, because it is much more profitable to (illegally) rent on airbnb than to (legally) rent to someone long-term. transients always spend more money then residents.
erlehmann: b) many airbnb guests behave in such an obnoxious way that entirely unpolitical people living in the same house hate them with a passion.
Framedragger: re. a), yes ACK re gentrification, sure.
Framedragger: (or well, maybe i'm misusing the term)
erlehmann: by passion, i mean: some door locks are faulty and seem to spontaneously fail in the middle of the night, when you come back to the ap.
Framedragger: basically, if we were to stay for a longer chunk of time, different arrangements would be made. very-short-term... hm, hotels are boring
erlehmann: also, did you know that frozen piss can be shoved under a door and seep into the carpet?
Framedragger: any personal experiences there? i've heard of "frozen piss" bomb concept, yeah
erlehmann: i could not possibly comment on that
erlehmann: let's say i heard stories. or saw stuff. who knows!
jurov: O.o my first two airbnb experiences were fine, but that was in greece, they don't mind noise
erlehmann: basically, if you want to go cheap: go to a hostel, rent a room for 4 or 6.
Framedragger notes "join erlehmann's local anarcho cell when ready" to list
erlehmann: joke's on you, i don't do such stuff
erlehmann: but i also don't have airnbn next door
erlehmann: so i guess motivation is low
erlehmann: it is just that berliners have a very good understanding of how to make people fuck off
erlehmann: example: burning cars. if your car is insured and it burns, that is not vandalism.
erlehmann: it is most likely a tactical action to make you go away.
erlehmann: took me some time to understand that.
ben_vulpes: who gives a flying fuck about "pushing up rents" because some people rent in ways not appealing to the local statal orgs
erlehmann: ben_vulpes local paupers
erlehmann: more generally, communities. tourists use infrastructure, but do not always pay taxes.
erlehmann: and are on the average much bigger assholes than people living there.
ben_vulpes: if the "community" can't soak people who want to come there and spend money adequately to make tourism +ev for the hosts incl. cities, how can they even justify continuing to live
Framedragger: gotta agree with you, #t will disdainfully sneer at "omg, kom000nity!!", but it does suck that local communities get negatively impacted in this regard
trinque: because otherwise they'd what?
trinque: bitch about something else?
Framedragger: you mean, what's their recourse / what leverage they have? yes, not much leverage at all, sucks to be them
trinque: no. I mean if they were free of the terribru rent oppression what human flourishing would sprout in their place?
erlehmann: i think it is not about rent per se. it is about long-term renting.
ben_vulpes: same people who are flabbergasted when rents go up 5%, having never considered allocating for that scenario.
ben_vulpes: "but i'm poor and nobody taught me that rents usually go up and now my living expenses and rent max out my income!"
Framedragger: plenty of folks quite content living their frugal lives (in e.g. leipzig, from what i hear, to be particular), i guess #t doesn't think much of them, i happen to have friends, what do. if bitch at 5% rent increase, sure, not much sympathy from me
ben_vulpes: b-be less poor?
erlehmann: as i said: as a tourist, i probably would not choose airbnb in berlin. reason is that the strategy is working. less stressful to book hotel room or hostel.
Framedragger takes point
erlehmann: if, on the other hand, you are looking to experience tourist hate, take an airbnb in mitte, in the vincinity of st. oberholz. take a wheelie case and new apple devices with you.
Framedragger: and emerge in late morning with frappucino and american accent "any free wifi around here, maan"
erlehmann: a suitcase on wheels marks a person like a shitstain on their pants
erlehmann: ah no, that will work
erlehmann: because you'll ask it in a cafe
erlehmann: and they'll smile and take all your money
erlehmann: on the other side of the street the drink will cost half as much, but what do you know, tourist!
Framedragger: yeah i guess that's basically 50% of berlin (*dodge*)
erlehmann: prepare to get fleeced
erlehmann: i'd also avoid berlin hacker gatherings

a111: Logged on 2017-06-22 19:44 ben_vulpes: b-be less poor?

ben_vulpes: eh i don't see how "stop bitching about problems you can trivially solve without involving the state eg rent control, try moving to a neighborhood as shitty as this one was two decades ago when you crept in" is quite "slice lengthwise"
asciilifeform: 'move to cheaper' is not same as 'be less poor'

lobbes: ben_vulpes: if the "community" can't soak people who want to come there and spend money adequately to make tourism +ev for the hosts incl. cities, how can they even justify continuing to live << I grew up on The Cod in Massachusetts; "working class" locals were always bitching about how much they hated tourists, but that tourism $$$ is the ~only~ thing sustaining that particular sandbar. Fishing is dead, and retail and landscaping indus

trinque: erlehmann: please bridge the gap for me between "country that is welcoming a flood of foreign invaders" and "omg haet tourists, I'll torch your car"

erlehmann: trinque refugees intend to become residents, not transients.
erlehmann: they have skin in the game, so to say

trinque: "I chose this" is I suppose one way to cope with the dick buried in your ass.
erlehmann: if you understand german, i can recommend this about gentrification (from 2010) https://www.kuechenstud.io/kuechenradio/episode/kr268-gentrifizierung/
trinque: you think the same stupid arguments aren't raised every time someone improves a neighborhood anywhere else?
erlehmann: fefe also made a podcast in 2017 with the same guy (andrej holm) https://alternativlos.org/40/
erlehmann: trinque it is about the specific history of berlin.
erlehmann: berlin is special, partially because both east and west used it to show off.
erlehmann: compare, e.g. amount of vegetation inside city with other german cities. berlin has much more.
asciilifeform: erlehmann: there is an american-'patented' style of rent-seeking scam that is now being 'enjoyed' in europe, incl., as i understand, in your berlin. which goes like this : 1) import a horde of raping, pillaging orcs from some fuckhole 2) prohibit 'discrimination' against'em. now the only permitted means of excluding them from being your neighbours is... price. 3) landlords rake in the dough, because now you gotta pay not only for ove
asciilifeform: rpriced flat but to put some distance b/w you and Them.
asciilifeform: 4) 'Profit!11111'
asciilifeform: the second stage of this cancer is when market begins to segment SOLELY based on orc proximity -- i.e. your house costs moar, or less, ~strictly based on how much orc you are willing to tolerate in everyday life, and not, say, based on size, or whether it is made from brick or shitboard
asciilifeform: eventually ~everyone gets ~same shit-flat made of shitboard, but with ~slightly~ varying proximity to orc pit.
asciilifeform: you can observe this 2nd stage in, e.g., city of baltimore, usa.
asciilifeform: i have nfi what is the 3rd stage. but i suspect that it looks like detroit -- which in turn, looked like berlin in '45
asciilifeform: and then 4th stage is the 'gentrifying' sections of detroit, that are being rebuilt into masses of cardboard condos that sell for $1M.
erlehmann: i think it is fairly plausible that the description of “orcs” can be read as some kind of blatant racism – “black-skinned”, “brutish”, “slant-eyed” …
erlehmann: rohirrim are even described as white-skins, no?

erlehmann: fact of the matter is i have not enough reference points
