fyr: My "urbit-turd" is ultimately on a test-net, and doesn't have live keys
fyr: and if it did and the shitty VPS it's on went down, I'd make doe eyes at Management and they'd unilaterally push my new key into the kernel of everyone on the network
fyr: because lolwut is decentralization
fyr: Afaict the whole point of the nickserv pgp thing is I can't come in a month later all "my laptop finally died of blunt impact trauma, accept new unsigned pubkey pl0x"
fyr: which would be terribly self-defeating if said laptop death did occur
shinohai: omg it is a so-called `cryptocurrency` ?
fyr: Anyway I know I'm on the larp server for "not getting pwned by unspecified pgp-fearing non-Mossad is hard, reliable backups and Linux audio is easy"
fyr: just *grump* at the implication that gpg is usable enough by a non-initiate to get a brainwallet or w/e out of it in 5 minutes
fyr knows he should "just" git gud at crypto
fyr: I guess I could just generate an entropic keypair and dump the private half in Dropbox, but in that case staying unregistered seems more uh honest :3
fyr: (Especially if I keep using this thru webchat on an ~underpatched iPad~)
shinohai: "and dump the private half in Dropbox" <<< please don't fucking do this
asciilifeform: fyr: get an old laptop with no nic and pgp on that. fiddybux.
fyr: It's not, even the desired end state is semi-centralized with 256 root nodes
fyr: I am very much not going to do that yes
fyr: I have a fresh Librem lying around I can probably use that
fyr: But that doesn't actually solve the "2 years later I drop it in the bath" problem
asciilifeform: it's, what, a couple of kB, to back up
fyr: Which requires more proactive multisig running-around
asciilifeform: you. simply. back. up. the. file
fyr: Okay yes I could just triplicate the primary key on various SD cards and hope nobody finds any of them
fyr: Still involves securing physical possessions as suddenly my job and not evil megacorps'
asciilifeform: imho a grown man, and a programmer, can figure out how to hide a few kByte somewhere, without any help from us
asciilifeform: ( and it goes without saying, that one does this at all times without help )
fyr: Anyway I'm sure I can be talked into it eventually, but I don't have it set up /already/ and am not going to go on a multihour Fetchquest to that effect rn
fyr is at work or sth

shinohai: iT'S TOO HARD!
fyr: "Without help" is a bit harsh, and implies I shouldn't read the ~practical guide~ just linked, but if I have srs keys nobody gets to touch them ya
fyr: Like I'm not saying it is ~an utterly impossible insurmountable burden~ I'm saying I don't have any threat models for which it makes sense
shinohai: Imagine key as physical object, like diamond. You would leave it sitting on kitchen table behind locked doors whilst you work?
fyr: to take on the liability of "don't lose this file or you'll get much more reputational harm than just not registering in the first place"
fyr: No I'd leave it locked up in a bank that all the normies trust B)
asciilifeform: fyr: do you use bitcoin ?
asciilifeform: if you do, oughta be familiar with the 'where do i keep something' problem and the approaches to it.
fyr: I have like less than one lying around on coinbase for use in buying alpaca socks, not like in any serious capacity
asciilifeform: shinohai: that doesn't solve the problem of a d00d who has nfi how to keep a key
fyr: I have any idea it just seems like a lot of work :P
shinohai: asciilifeform: I was trying to be magnanimous and assume he had basic knowledge
fyr is lazy to a fault
asciilifeform: fyr: it's a pretty modest amount of ( largely non-recurring ) work.
asciilifeform: the reward is that you get to actually have an identity.
asciilifeform: and a reputation.
fyr: Have read article, if I was doing this for srs that would be a backup for sharded offsite multisig
asciilifeform: you get a signature, that -- eventually, perhaps -- begins to ~mean something~
fyr: I have a decent grasp of the relevant /primitives/ and am confident in my ability to actually apply them after a couple days of reading manpages
asciilifeform: having no key, is rather like the traditional portrait of being a ghost -- you can looksy but no touchsy
fyr: How many times has any ~ghost~ on this channel actually been impersonated? I guess like if every conversation starts with "get a key already" ghosts just don't exist for long
fyr: And like I get that unforgeable reputation is useful if you want to have a textual agreement to buy some MPEx security for bitcoin, or w.e.
asciilifeform: fyr: this is rather like asking 'how many times have people stolen diamond off your front porch'
asciilifeform: nobody leaves diamond on front porch
asciilifeform: and nobody has serious business with keyless.
asciilifeform: or gives'em anything to make'em worth impersonating.
shinohai: "if I was doing this for srs" <<< no reason to do it otherwise besides practicd in ones own home
fyr: But I don't have any bright plans for making such arrangements, and will consider keyfulness premature optimization until then
fyr has a rhinestone
fyr is listening about how he should put the porch rhinestone inside a $200 safe
fyr: which will take 2 dudes with jackhammers a day to install, disrupting any attempts to get work done during that day

mircea_popescu: (this is a significant problem. consider a model : there's what, ten-twenty millions of bernsteins, kanzure , fyr and what have you on one hand ; and only a hundred or so of us. even if we were to work a full 200 hour's week, if on average one needs 1k man-hours of constant whipping to redress into humanity, we encounter the following birthday paradox : either the whipping is undirected, in which case every tard gets 15 minut
mircea_popescu: es and nothing happens ; or else the whipping is directed, in which case we pick the 3-sigma cases and get 0.03% of 10mn ie 3k people who could be fixed in a few days each.
asciilifeform: bryan ( kanzure ) is in asciilifeform's meat l2 for many yrs, but imho remains a border case
mircea_popescu: now the problem with this is that the stupid beast ~quite deliberately~ (even if uncomprehended by the elements, subhuman as they are, composing that beast) presents them partially. so as to avoid you know, actual results, much like an octopus would touch a stove.)
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform hence the sigma comments.
trinque: g_l for example can absorb an astonishing amount of whipping with nary a budge. I don't even mean that as an insult.
asciilifeform: i have genuinely nfi re g_l , what he spends his time on, after seeing the film
asciilifeform: asked the q ' so what didja ~change~ in clim etc ' and no satisfactory reply
trinque: I've got e-mail threads with him where I try to spoonfeed him a mcclim support gig, nada
asciilifeform: g_l wrote that he ended up here via my www, but often it is not clear to asciilifeform what he read, and what -- absorbed
mircea_popescu: trinque i have no clear view of what he's doing, so i can't measure, so i wouldn't even call it that.
mircea_popescu: anyway, the in-character which is to say fictitious name for "the stupid beast presents them partially to avoid phase transitions" is that much-celebrated (in stupidistan) "freedom of choice", ie the batshit insane notion that the unknowing may be involved in decisions as of what to do with themselves.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: it #includes<> an even nuttier notion, that the unknowing can transform ~selves~ into the knowing, without external prod
asciilifeform: sorta whole point of apprenticeship ( and later, in moar decayed times, schools ) is to ~inflict~ this transformation
mircea_popescu: heck, why not, if there can exist (as in principle can) individuals who need any arbitrary amount of whipping, there's no reason to elide the extreme case. maybe somewhere somehow there exists this jeddi that actually needs 0, is a natural.
mircea_popescu: can't say i've encountered that many ; and can say that from actual lived experience, the "thinks he's jeddi" heuristic is a fine indicator for "head so far up ass the net result of sufficient whipping will be soap", ie http://trilema.com/2015/the-anal-child/

mircea_popescu: i've had no idea just how frequent 4foot-something females are, pre latinoamerica.
asciilifeform: i dun think these exist where there is food..?
mircea_popescu: anyway. but the discussion does make it plain and obvious why "nonviolence", ie attemptingto limit whippings, is such an automatic companion to "freedom of meaningless choice" as to establish what to the cattle means "human rights".
mircea_popescu: they're stupid-old-woman rights, at best.

mircea_popescu: Our current financial status is $1,429 for bounties and $267 recurring monthly contributions from the supporters (thanks!).
mircea_popescu: o damn.
asciilifeform: that looks high for an opensores proj but rather low for a funded op of whateverr kind
phf: yeah, i don't remember the details. i think g_l just wanted to be the top dog on the project, and, to quote trinque, swing a dick that he didn't have by running the whole thing in faux tmsr way (lots of calling everyone cunt), which got him marginalized, and eventually completely sidelined
mircea_popescu: hey phf you have any idea how they calculate the bounties ?
mircea_popescu: maybe he's scottish, cunt just means man in their lowlands gaelic.
mircea_popescu: so does the average dog.
phf: i don't think he literally used the word cunt. i've spent some years with the irish, when i'm in moscows i start reverting (i'm not quite sure what the connection is in my brain)

phf: mircea_popescu: i've not really paid enough attention, but they use some bounty tracker https://www.bountysource.com/teams/mcclim/bounties
mircea_popescu: ok, but the problem of interest is how to compute something to end up with the magic number 150. or a replacement.

jackdaniel: I know phf nick, can't remember where from
mircea_popescu: wasn't giving a recipe, just referencing.
mircea_popescu: jackdaniel so a major item of curiosity for me is how do you calculate the bounty values ?
jackdaniel: I work a bit with code. I asses how hard it will be to fix it, how beneficial fixing it will be and how much resources we have
jackdaniel: then I consult with guys on #clim if my assesments are okaish
mircea_popescu: let me put this question into the model of interest :
mircea_popescu: would having more money at your disposal put an inflationary pressure on bounty levels ? ie, for "same work" (admitting for a moment there's such a thing as work-needed scalar) more money ? conversely, encountering headwinds/making little progress over time/decelerating would deflate bounties ?
jackdaniel: it's hard to read what you write. could you rephrase?
mircea_popescu: let's try. so at the moment you have $1,429 for bounties ; let's say the average bounty pays 10 dollars per quanta of "computer work", however defined.
mircea_popescu: had you $1,429,500 for bounties, would the per-quanta payment increase ? maybe to 11 ? 20 ? 100 ?
jackdaniel: I don't know, I don't think so though
mircea_popescu: hm. are you familiar with bitcoin at all ?
jackdaniel: yes, a tiny bit
jackdaniel: sorry, I'm quite busy now. I've read the log – yes, bounties are arbitrary, or as someone nicely put it "pulled out of ass" by me
mircea_popescu: the question is, are you familiar with the mechanisms which render bitcoin unassailable by alt coins (such as detailed in http://trilema.com/2014/the-woes-of-altcoin-or-why-there-is-no-such-thing-as-cryptocurrencies/ ) ? because EXACTLY the same processes are at work tearing apart small independent efforts such as your own, and ultimately are the reason usg ended up as the sole employer in its domains.
jackdaniel: regarding gl, he behaved socially unacceptable on the channel and tracker what was a burden because it introduced many childish plays
jackdaniel: which discouraged users from using mcclim
jackdaniel: no, I'm not that interested in cryptocurriencies to think about them much
jackdaniel: either way, thanks for inviting me so I could confirm/clarifiy some assesments about me. Have a nice evening o/
phf: i don't think he appreciated my communication style.
mircea_popescu: phf basically what i take his notion to be re the problem is you know, "i'll just mp it", which may seem like a workable idea until one stops to notice that the original mp never actually attempted to guess prices.
phf: i don't think he can even grok the shape of the criticism
mircea_popescu: possibly not. language perhaps a factor. but i dun speak polish sadly.
mircea_popescu: anyway, this makes 3 out of 3 not supporting this, and amusingly enough in each case for merits.
phf: i'm not understanding the second half of that sentence
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform doesn't support it because he doesn't like the outer case limits of the design, esp re speed. i am not supporting it because i do not have any faith whatsoever in its financial soundness. you aren't supporting it because hm.
mircea_popescu: i guess i never knew. why weren't you ?
mircea_popescu: (if you're interested by the literalism, "for merit" is one of two ways in which a case can be adjudicated. the other one is on form, such as through lack of standing, lack of jurisdiction, etcetera.)
phf: aah, now i get the whole thing
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: 'outer case limit' is somewhat of an oversimplification : the thing fitsinhead so poorly, that to this day i am not fully certain why so abominably slow ( other than the abstract fact of 5-6 layers of complexity doing their impedance-mismatch thing together )
mircea_popescu: well, i had space for five words, what do you want from me.
mircea_popescu: (but yes, the reason i even looked irrespective of that being on the table was the involved complexity and the expectation you're not actually speaking from atop it)
mircea_popescu: http://btcbase.org/log/2017-08-31#1707467 << twelve year old boy does not get bycicle so as to avoid "threat model" of laser shooting wolves and flying tigers and boxing bears with a negro's penis oh my!

phf: i'm not sure if mcclim can be "made better" by own hands, but i'm not interested in the direction the bounty team is taking it. i agree with ascii, but i think it could be attempted to reduce it to absolute minimum of moving parts, to establish if the design is fundamentally limited or not.

mircea_popescu: your notion that you can be a person outside of the wot is you know, exactly like cumdumpster bimbo's notion anyone notices, cares, or recalls.
phf: it's actually pretty small. 150k or so if you don't count the dependencies. i believe that the mcclim team has pulled a bunch of builtin compatability layers and replaced them with portable "community" versions i.e. closer-mop instead of builtin mop facility (metaobject protocol for dealing with CLOS classes), etc.
mircea_popescu: that's not even terribru. imo within "with-own-hands" territory, especially if there's readily ablatable low hanging fruit.
mircea_popescu: but then again, my "imo" is the producer's "imo", "imo you should be able to take that 9 incher up your ass, i've seen plenty of girls do it before." "that exact one ?" "well no" "up this exact ass ?" "well, you're new." "SO THEN!" "face down ass up already, time's money."

a111: Logged on 2017-08-31 19:56 jackdaniel: which discouraged users from using mcclim
gabriel_laddel_p: It seems rather strange to me that you’re assigning bounties to “bugs” when it is clear that in many cases you have read neither the spec, nor the code, nor have the slightest idea what is even WRONG in the proposed bug.
gabriel_laddel_p: Separately I also defunded you to an extent, for the simple reason that you have no vision, nor communication ability, nor coding ability, period.
gabriel_laddel_p: mircea_popescu: CLIM & ether have nothing to do with one another. you are remembering that I A) completed a bounty and then B) was not paid
gabriel_laddel_p: turns out it takes usg/fiat _three months_ to process fucking 200 usd. was eventually paid. never mentioned it bc wtf, 200 use?
gabriel_laddel_p: *usd? who cares.
gabriel_laddel_p: anyways, there is a lot more to address in the above log, but I did get the largest McCLIM backers to date to stop funding the effort. One of them bought a masamune.

gabriel_laddel_p: incidentally, my CLIM implementation is 99,676 lines of lisp code, as calculated by sloccount just now
asciilifeform: that's massive, gabriel_laddel_p
gabriel_laddel_p: incomplete, yes, but there are some fundamental things in CLIM that need to be fixed, such as the notion of a parallel type heigharchy for presentations.
gabriel_laddel_p: fucking idiotic
gabriel_laddel_p: asciilifeform: imho can be cut down to an easy 30k loc that will be faster, conceptually "closed"
gabriel_laddel_p: and not so goddamn insane.
trinque: who's going to do it?
gabriel_laddel_p: trinque: well, I do work on this from time to time, yes.
gabriel_laddel_p: trinque: first I had to nail down masamune replication. which I actually managed to do
gabriel_laddel_p: (single function call generates a USB that boots into a CLIM environment, no version changes, ever)
gabriel_laddel_p: neat doesn't cover it
trinque: no, it does.
trinque: duplicating the contents of a block device is trivial.
trinque: I used to work on a thing that'd multicast images out. say 500 servers pxeboot, slurp image, reboot, post-deploy script runs, and your DC is up
gabriel_laddel_p: trinque: it isn't "duplicating the contents of a block device", but rather having that USB able to build itself onto another machine that can in turn generate replication USBs that is the problem
gabriel_laddel_p: maybe I overcomplicated things,but wrote in terms of CPIO format then fed into linux kernel from syslinux.
gabriel_laddel_p: generating CPIO files is... anyways, ascii knows
trinque: at any rate, neat, but the hyperbole is not doing you any favors.
gabriel_laddel_p: trinque: what do you mean by "multicast"?
trinque: in the IP sense.
gabriel_laddel_p: trinque: if all this is so easy, where is the frozen tsmr gentoo that can do what I described above?
gabriel_laddel_p: and where can I buy a replication USB?
gabriel_laddel_p: I can't quite put my finger on it, but I think we're talking past one another here & have been for some time.
trinque: yeah, you get defensive too quickly.
gabriel_laddel_p: trinque: apologies. I think this is mostly just that the path forwards is clear to me, and that e.g., you people see a masamune video & ask zero questions I'm mostly left wondering why you even bother pretending you want a lispm
trinque: anyhow infectious gentoo is sitting on my hd, asciilifeform, whoever else bothered. saying so isn't diminishing you having done it as well.
gabriel_laddel_p: I rather have the same reaction to the old symbolics people in the area who have now seen masamune after sinking you know, a decade of their lives or so into lispm & then don't buy
gabriel_laddel_p: but you know, invite me to stuff & call me "the lisp machine kid" + insist on my showing it off to their idiot friends
trinque: didn't I propose you change tactics a while back?
trinque: how's it gone since then?
shinohai: `you people`
gabriel_laddel_p: shinohai: trinque, phf, ben_vulpes

trinque: gabriel_laddel_p: right there, you presume to tell asciilifeform whether he "gets a pass"
trinque: yes, dumb fucking kid, still. and a drug-addled wreck to boot.
asciilifeform: gabriel_laddel_p: what part of 'no x86, no c, no unix, in the fucking box' is hard to understand?
gabriel_laddel_p: trinque: let's put it this way irrespective of anything any of you say, I say the future is going to look like this:
trinque: !!down gabriel_laddel_p
asciilifeform: http://btcbase.org/log/2017-08-31#1707767 << they want a lispm. not a 'i can't believe it's not a lispm'

trinque: you do not have a declarative relationship with the future
asciilifeform: trinque: let the d00d say what he meant
asciilifeform: !!up gabriel_laddel_p
asciilifeform: trinque: can always kick'im laters
gabriel_laddel_p: first concrete step towards sane computing is a tsmr gentoo that is A) self contained B) infectious / replicates as described above C) uses CLIM for all graphics.
gabriel_laddel_p: all existing CLIM implementations have problems. it is an annoying, irritating, but utterly straightforwards process to fix any of the extant CLIM implementations
gabriel_laddel_p: this means that all of the Unix tooling can essentially be dumped in favor of lisp + CLIM.
gabriel_laddel_p: no emacs, but rather a CL editor & so forth.
gabriel_laddel_p: this is essentially what masamune is, admittedly in a ragged & impoverished form, right now, today.
trinque: and how does having a lisp userland atop a massive C kernel help?
trinque: understand that the kernel defines the ways in which userland shall interact with it, and thus shapes userland?
gabriel_laddel_p: trinque: because lisp/s-expressions/incremental compilation means that you don't have to make decisions about everything right away.
gabriel_laddel_p: an entire, sane lispm-like (which yes, ascii disagrees with) unix can be had, and then this can meet the hardware implementation "in the middle"
gabriel_laddel_p: specifically, when I say "meet in the middle", a fixed CLIM will run just fine on new tsmr hardware reverse engineered fpga lispm with a minimum amount of fuss
gabriel_laddel_p: it is unclear at this point what the hardware, real lispm implementation is going to look like & I have months of logs to catch up before I begin to even comment on this
gabriel_laddel_p: there are however, a number of issues, such as a how to get rid of floats & what to replace them with that can be safely engineered on the unix-not-even-lispm
gabriel_laddel_p: for example, are you familiar with the book "the end of error"?
gabriel_laddel_p: now, I am 100% with ascii that floats have to die. no question. I, however, am severely undereducated & don't know what to replace them with.
trinque: how do you bridge the gap between your hyperbolic statements about the future of computing and what you just said?
gabriel_laddel_p: trinque: I'm telling you it is going to play out like that, and not in another way.
gabriel_laddel_p: trinque: perhaps I'll be shown to be wrong.
gabriel_laddel_p: trinque: anywyays, this seems obvious to me. MP has been asking for a tsmr linux for years. if you all have had it floating around FUCKING RELEASE.
gabriel_laddel_p: trinque: do you need me to find log references for when he has asked this, or do you remember offhand?
gabriel_laddel_p: trinque: or do you disagree with his judgement that such a thing is necessary?
trinque: read the logs, idiot.
trinque: danielpbarron is offering a gentoo lappy iirc.
gabriel_laddel_p: trinque: I have seen this.
trinque: asciilifeform: I've lost interest in this thread, all yours.
phf: gabriel_laddel_p: you're moving targets though. if you're building a tmsr linux nobody's going to fault you, but if you're going to approach a bunch of lisp heads with a half assed sbcl environment on a unix machine and tell them it's a "lisp machine", expect nothing but contempt
gabriel_laddel_p: phf: you know "lisping at jpl"?
gabriel_laddel_p: the author saw it, "whoa, a lispm!"
gabriel_laddel_p: "how do I get?"
gabriel_laddel_p: we are going to be getting dinner at some point is my understanding to work out details.
gabriel_laddel_p: but was recently in hospital, so postponed.
gabriel_laddel_p: incidentally, I remembered exactly where the demo to google earth guy went off the rails after logging off last night.
gabriel_laddel_p: he saw, with his own eyes the line count for CLIM, and had worked with the browser for several years. we looked at the loc count for chrome & compared.
mircea_popescu: gabriel_laddel_p from their own lists it says it wasn't claimed or something.
mircea_popescu: but it's there, i recall seeing it.
gabriel_laddel_p: he thought 100k loc in one language vs. ~30 million in 20 languages wasn't a big deal.
gabriel_laddel_p: at which point I was sort of curious what the fuck he did all day at google anyways
gabriel_laddel_p: mircea_popescu: ah, k.
phf: gabriel_laddel_p: it was a form of speech, but it didn't go anywhere with you. i'm saying it's not a lisp machine, because i have a lisp machine on an fpga right here, ron garret saw a demo and thinks it's a lisp machine. he's sold, i'm not, so it stands.
gabriel_laddel_p: phf: I really need to catch up on what you've been up to.

a111: Logged on 2017-03-24 03:11 phf: but there was none of that, because there wasn't actually anything being done. i think it would be a lot more impressive if you setup a non trivial task and showed how masamune makes that task easier to perform
mircea_popescu: he's not getting a 1 is he.
phf: a good example of what i mean by "do something nontrivial" is baggers's series on CEPL "pushing pixels with lisp" https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCMV8p6Lb-bd6UZtTc_QD4zA which shows real time graphics wizardry mediated by an sbcl/emacs

phf: parker's cadr
asciilifeform: re fpga ( there were various 'i'ma throw something together, with 11 different closed dramcontroller, nic, etc from xilinx lib ) , a german, and i fughet who else, all similar
asciilifeform: oh yea and parker.
phf: the sentece was corny, i meant that "i didn't buy masamune (because ..) but ron garret did"
asciilifeform: since we're on subj, asciilifeform got the recently released ice40-8k (largest in the series) going. ( there's only 1 decent dev board for the 8k, the one released by olimex ~2wks ago )
asciilifeform: it worx. ( blinkenlichts, couplea hundred universal i/o pins, schematic published )
asciilifeform: 512k of sram (16 bits wide).
asciilifeform: comes with 100MHz clock gen, but has pll, tunable.

mircea_popescu: people keep thinking woz was "the man behind". the sort of people who like to think that and therefore do are also the sort of people who never get anywhere "for no fault of their own".
mircea_popescu: all sorts. from paper mags to obscure network afils.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: woz was not connected with the mac era
mircea_popescu: jobs did ~nothing else.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform true, was talking more in general.
trinque: "famous 1984 ad"
mircea_popescu: for instance.
asciilifeform: plenty of now long-dead and rightfully buried vendors bought $maxint ads.
mircea_popescu: anwyay, my point being that wozniak was not the larger part of a woz-jobs team.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform exactly.
mircea_popescu: they - brought the wrong ones.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i have yet to encounter the pov that woz 'was larger part'
mircea_popescu: which is why jobs belongs buried next to ogilvy not next to naggum
asciilifeform: d00d designed a pcb, and wrote a basic for 6502, and afaik ended there
asciilifeform: gotta also recall, the crapple2 comp was nothing particularly special -- commodore cost ~same and was 10x the bang for buck.

asciilifeform: oh hey hey hey, lbj!
asciilifeform: how many californifucks have you killed today!
kanzure: on a totally unrelated note i promise, what exactly is your progress towards nuking california
asciilifeform: why is this asciilifeform's job ?
kanzure: seems to be one of your goals
asciilifeform: i dun expect to live to even see a good plague.
kanzure: perhaps if you tried harder
asciilifeform: ain't that kanzure's dept.?
kanzure: wasn't it your opinion that such tasks should not be left to children? you guys are so full of shit.
asciilifeform: says the bright young fella who after $millions of payola (i'ma carry on supposing that it was from judasing for usg, esr-style, unless proven otherwise) and decade+ , produced: ___?___
mircea_popescu: so far nuking mexico and italy it seems

asciilifeform: aw snoar.
mircea_popescu: kanzure dja understand why native african can't respond to 1860s brit wondering how the fuck they failed to colonize madagascar with "oh yeah ? where's your airplanes then! you seem to want airplanes!"
mircea_popescu: you know as well as i do that the reason your log lives on .log files is because all of you lot think you could, but none of you lot actually can make a sane log. that's what the random package a low effort search returned does, and that is what you get. same is true of all other items, either you found it at the walmart in the "diy" section or you don't have it.
kanzure: yuep that's what we spent $27 million on. browsing walmart. k
mircea_popescu: this is a fundamental problem, and a major irritant to asciilifeform ; he is allergic to "i'm not a hooker, i'm a priss dressed provocatively trying to crowd out the real hookers"
mircea_popescu: kanzure are we discussing teh #transhuman thing ?
mircea_popescu: well... what DID you spend 27mn on ?
kanzure: we didn't. it's all false. totally no results though.
kanzure: your expertise truly saw everything, as expected for such an illustrious maggot
kanzure: er, spelling

mircea_popescu: i saw what i saw. you're more than welcome to fill in the gaps, what'd i miss ?
kanzure: dunno. wait for catalog day.
mircea_popescu: the other guy spending a grand total of $1400 has a lengthy report about it, somehow i missed the corresponding link in this 27mn venture.
mircea_popescu: and in other greens, is this a kardashian ? http://68.media.tumblr.com/2df1e5de773f3af5899d2751f7269db3/tumblr_nu9ppfzmRK1ryxzr3o1_1280.jpg
mircea_popescu: kanzure dja have any idea how dumb you look going in with an attempt to impress by EXPENDITURE, and then on the flimsiest of examination appearing unable to explain WHAT you bought ? tell you what, the usg you seem so keen to emulate spent a trillion and similary "wait for plane catalog day". or alternatively, has some littoral cardboard models that can't float.
kanzure: like i said, no 27.
mircea_popescu: terrible way to go about it, really now.
kanzure: how did we get to this re: nuking california?
mircea_popescu: the correct approach is, "see this great car ? and i only paid 50 bux for it". certainly not "oh, i spend 5 mn on cars and uhm, disregard the donkey"
kanzure: would you have laughed more if i had said $270 million?
mircea_popescu: this makes me wanna compute how much i paid for tits in current fiats.
mircea_popescu: likely more than the mcclim project budget.

mircea_popescu: o is it ?
mircea_popescu doubts the google ai can actually find costa rica. reals you see, errors compound, place is small.
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Is that what hpluschannel is talking about?

asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: see for yourself
mircea_popescu: really, "mp in danger of being extradited" already ? truly burning the years, these folks, since extracting head out of ass and self from under rock managed to get all the way to like 2013 ?

asciilifeform pictures when they 'extradited' asciilifeform , ended up dividing by 0 since he already lives in thebigzone
BingoBoingo: Anyways, since DIYbio became a fad on Monday: How many inches did everyone here add to their dicks?
asciilifeform: tru meathacker reasoneth not in inches; adds metres
BingoBoingo: Nah, go for bigger number
mircea_popescu: yeah totally, my dick is now best approximated by a high cocktose corn stalk, 8 meters long an' there's twelve different ears the hos can fuck themselves silly with on its generous girthy length
BingoBoingo: No reason for big unit if small number
BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> yeah totally, my dick is now best approximated by a high cocktose corn stalk, 8 meters long an' there's twelve different ears the hos can fuck themselves silly with on its generous girthy length << If we made a mold and cast this in sillycone, this might sell
