asciilifeform: ( in curl ?! wai?! )
asciilifeform: verdict so far is, makefiles dun survive being pasted.
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo usg.pinoy moved on to whining about imminent usg defeat ?
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: Hard to tell if usg.pinoy or PRC.Chinoy
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform best i can tell, wotpaste simply drops nonascii chars. was something in the makefile not ascii ?
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: absolutely not
asciilifeform: no winblowz line endings either ( from where..? )
trinque: spent more time freaking out than producing a diff would've taken.
trinque: seems it wasn't the tabs; those came back
mircea_popescu: trinque i am actually running a terst and it's pretty mindboggling.
mircea_popescu: meanwhile running without the shasums produces
trinque: I think echo adds a newline, for one
mircea_popescu: so it'd seem an 0a/0d gets mangled ?
mircea_popescu: why the fuck would it do that.
trinque: just... does. and look, they gave ya a "echo -n" to undo it! choice
mircea_popescu: (i don't expect it does, because look in 2nd paste. the -=== bit is produced by echo.
trinque: -n do not output the trailing newline
mircea_popescu: god damned that was it, -n fixes it!
mircea_popescu: oMY FUCXKING GOD ALREADY
mircea_popescu: anyway. now they match.
mircea_popescu very much recommends this test : pick random textfile, put it through the above code, see if you find a dismatching line.
mircea_popescu: atm watching it scroll, however many 100s of lines in, they all match.
trinque: phf's "foo" breaks it, though really, if the thing's an ascii paster, I dunno that the bug's anything but "fed uniturds, did not tell user to fuck off"
mircea_popescu: pretty sure it simply drops non-ascii chars silently. which is the right thing at that.
mircea_popescu: anyway, i'm calling it good before i fill the guy;'s disk with random lines.

phf: ben_vulpes: are you using hunchentoot?
phf: so it shouldn't be loosing anything in 0-127 range, at least the foo file comes through clean. it is trying to parse the input as unicode (and i'm pretty sure it's the server doing it, because curl is sending it 8bit clean)
mircea_popescu: phf got a sample case to work on ?
phf: because everything >127 is getting replaced with efbfbd which is unicode "REPLACEMENT CHARACTER" in utf-8
mircea_popescu: phf yes but does it ever collate into an unicode character or anything of the sort ?
phf: it parses input file as unicode and replaces anything that's ascii code >127 with
a111: Logged on 2017-07-16 02:50 phf: i'm using this function to post this file i'm posting it by doing a command "cat foo | wotpaste"
phf: foo is a specially crafted file which is simply a sequence of bytes from 0 to 255
mircea_popescu: possibly there's something else afot though, because that wouldn't have afected a makefile, ie the original problem is it.
mircea_popescu: no, i see that.
phf: right, we're in agreement here. ascii should've remained untouched
phf: i mean, we've had very many tests demonstrating it, part of ongoing "paster ate my characters" asciilifeform saga
phf: but i figure i'll try pushing a binary file through (which wasn't the spec anyway, just wanted to see what actually happens)
mircea_popescu: fwiw i never did manage to verify the saga was anything more than alf's extremely short fuse.
phf: :>
mircea_popescu: and i am not about to see 500 or 5 million instances of that morph into some kind of actual proof of anything.
phf: nor would my explorations ever corroborate that
mircea_popescu: anyway, so far : it's not clear that it actually does anything untoward to ascii ; my tests as they were failed to find an example. we did discover it replaces nonascii chars with some random gunk, which yes should be changed but not really much of a point or anything
mircea_popescu: i thought maybe it is the case that it takes a 2 or 3 byte item which starts with valid ascii and tries to interpret it as some sort of unicode bs and in the process ends up applying a transform to the text somehow. but unless we have the actual magic string, we're not finding this.
mircea_popescu: which is why i asked if you have anything like that.
mircea_popescu: i tried for isntance feeding the original makefile in line by line with my comparer thing, but all the lines match.
phf: so the utf-8 parser takes anything in the 0-127 range as is, so we definitely wouldn't have any "magic string" cases in the happy path (the unhappy path being that you can apparently specify file type and encoding when posting to an rfc2388 form, and the server can happily decide to transcode it in whatever way it pleases)
mircea_popescu: there's no way he's fixcing that however, outside of making a whole new tmsr http

asciilifeform: ( how this was finessed on day0 -- i do not presently know )
mod6: lol
mod6: i guess i didn't realize that, i thought you just, ofc, need a working gcc.
asciilifeform: this so far is in fact the thing i like least.
asciilifeform: mod6: gnat is an ada proggy.
mod6: aha, ok. i get what you're sayin'
asciilifeform: so 'working gcc' is guaranteed to not suffice.
asciilifeform: it uses gcc backend tho, so also needs a working gcc.
asciilifeform: but you already knew this.
mod6: also, above, I pasted the wrong link to adacore, here's the one that I was given to get the adacore source:
mod6: my apologies to anyone following along.
phf: presumably original version was assembled by jean ichbiah out of twigs, a simula compiler, a UNIVAC machine, a chicken, a wrench, a discarded truck tire. the process was documented in BUILD-PROC.TXT.3
mod6: ok, so i dropped on a binary install of adacore onto my gentoo environment here just to test...
mod6: will grab alf's fact.tar.gz nao, and see if it works.
mircea_popescu: phf i thought that was lisp
mod6: asciilifeform: also, what's weird is, despite the errors in the last paste above, an 'ffa_fact' binary is still compiled.
mod6: and works.
mod6: *blink*
phf: nah, lisp has been using the same image file since the early mccarthy days. each consecutive versions were implemented by manually patching the image file roughly into the needed shape all the way to present implementations
mircea_popescu: that'd explain all the ebcdic
phf: kind of reminds me of those personal homepages of schizophrenics back in the early days of the internets
mircea_popescu: kinda reminds me of the various "cryptocurrencty" and "blockchain" communities.
mircea_popescu: i suppose these are rather compatible memories.
asciilifeform: 'No Mircea Popescu (his blog, ranting) is not the DAO hacker, but he does know what actually happened to Cryptsy. doesn't know how to handle floats/doubles/scientific-notation and it is being manipulated in margin trading. 10% (soon to be 20%) of all mining rewards go to the Bilderburg Group' << lollamatic
mircea_popescu: in other sads, i spent most of the day at the local celebration, which included ~1000 horses. everything smells of manure.
mircea_popescu: it's like i fell into 1717 somehow.
asciilifeform: mod6: i suspect that your env path needs tweaking
asciilifeform: e.g. PATH=/opt/gnat/bin:$PATH;export PATH; in your .bashrc --- or wherever it is
mod6: oh, weird, i installed everything to /usr/local/gnat
mod6: and i already added: PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/gnat/bin to my ~/.bashrc
mod6: PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/gnat/bin; export PATH
mod6: weird.
mod6: <+phf> kind of reminds me of those personal homepages of schizophrenics back in the early days of the internets << scammers.
mod6: fwiw, if i just run `gnatmake ffa_fact`, does not error.
asciilifeform: on what box did it ever ?
mod6: never did, that always seems to work. can't figure out why it says "gcc: error: language ada not recognized"
mod6: either way, think I should run the ffa_fact test?
asciilifeform: if it runs...
phf: nah, you guys, there used to be sites, geocities style, made by actual schizophrenics. they were awesome. it was the kind of place where they discussed bildeberg and complained about the high doses of lithium or whatever prescribed by their doctor (who was taking direct orders from ronald reagan who was secretly still controlling the shadow government of the united states through the high concentration of ...)
asciilifeform: timecube!!
asciilifeform: i do wonder where these vanished to
mod6: see how long it takes? this is a core2duo (old box) with 4gb of ram
mod6: <+asciilifeform> if it runs... << ok will try
asciilifeform: mod6: ram is 100% irrelevant here
mircea_popescu: now they're fat girls raving about how they were almost raped by the subway.
phf: oh yeah, timecube, but that one is almost legit.
asciilifeform: yeah but where are the original 'they'
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i expect they're still there ; unfindable now because we stupidly decided to take google seriously.
asciilifeform: likely.
asciilifeform: this and possibly + speedy deletion by 'blogger' etc kolhozed for 'term of service violation' for lese mageste
mircea_popescu: when i was a child, i read a story, well written in the fantastic realist embryonic style. it contained a lamp for making darkness, which struck me then as the pinnacle of antipossible objects.
mircea_popescu: except, that is ~the only proper way to describe google.
mircea_popescu: it is the world's first, and to my knowledge the world's only, darkness making lamp.
mod6: ok off it goes.
trinque: ha strangely apt, mod6.
BingoBoingo: <asciilifeform> we might have to confiscate gentoo etc sooner rather than later. << It'll need renamed to keep pantsuitists from using
asciilifeform: incidentally we have moar data!!! :
mod6: this box does nothing else other than just test builds/dev for trb, and is currently idle. should be a decent test. albiet much slower than the metrics collected with alf's i7 box.
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo cuntoo, evidently.

asciilifeform: ( others -- still cookin' )
mod6: <+mircea_popescu> BingoBoingo cuntoo, evidently. << i think this is a winner.
mircea_popescu: can have a logo of a cunt with two balls, like cartman's idea. cunt-o-o
BingoBoingo thinks Cuntshoo may be more fitting
trinque: asciilifeform: let ya know about the g5 gnat; haven't tried yet.
asciilifeform: aaaand, literally <2min later, we have trial #2 of >>> 155m54.188s

mod6: <+asciilifeform> mod6: ram is 100% irrelevant here << not saying it isn't, trying to be more descriptive than "box". lol
BingoBoingo: Cunt, two balls, two shoes; for the stomping!
mod6: asciilifeform: nice
asciilifeform: mod6: i gotta clarify, the ~size~ is irrelevant , the bus speed, however, quite relevant.
asciilifeform: possibly the sole bottleneck.
asciilifeform: ( witness the figures for 2.5 vs 2.7 GHz intels )
mod6: CPU0: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU E7500 @ 2.93GHz
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu, BingoBoingo : i immediately pictured an 'abstract' dentata logo
asciilifeform: for 'cuntoo'.
mircea_popescu: kinda hard to make tho
asciilifeform: nah, just picture bear trap teeth , vertical.
phf: i have to say cuntoo readers/sounds better than cuntshoo, easier to write, straight to the point, etc.
mircea_popescu: nubbin on top ?
asciilifeform: naturally!
mircea_popescu: phf im not sure how the shoes cut in. BingoBoingo what's the shoe idea ?
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform you know the funny thing with clitoral presentation is that both top and bottom are "naturally" just to different people!
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: Well feet have balls and Cartman's cunts have balls. Also the oo sound. Why not have Cuntshoos. Very detective sounding like Gumshoe
asciilifeform: meh, extra letters
