a111: Logged on 2017-09-29 03:28 asciilifeform hasn't deployed anything but hand-sewn router for maybe 4y+
asciilifeform: i certainly can't bring myself to use the konsoomer crapola, when making a replacement that lasts ~forever and requires 0 nursing, is hardly even day's work
asciilifeform checks router in room and finds ~year of uptime, and would be longer if i hadn't cleaned it last winter
mircea_popescu: and in today's installment of loose holes and limp knees,
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform whatr do you use, actual comps ? or rasperry lulz ?
asciilifeform: typically neither:
asciilifeform: this one, for example, is a defanged (refirmwared) 'edgerouter'
asciilifeform: 64bit mips thing, there was a thread
asciilifeform: another pretty good one is that very same pcengines box, from ~that~ thread
mircea_popescu: ah. i guess, if you keep lists of which ones aren't too stupid byu nature
asciilifeform: just about anything with a few GB nic ports, fanless cpu, and some place to stick netbsd etc, worx
asciilifeform: also helps if it has a serial port ( mine do )
mircea_popescu: with the downside that you're now stuck maintaining netbsd.
asciilifeform: maintaining?!
mircea_popescu: well ?
asciilifeform: you stick it on and weld it shut
mircea_popescu: need i quote at you ?
trinque doesn't have GB internet connection, so old G4 + openbsd works great

mircea_popescu: trinque except you gotta maintain openbsd now.
asciilifeform: why would a router care re privesc
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform why would the next one be re privesc.
trinque: I dunno what maintain means here
mircea_popescu: that at any future point you must be able to produce a package you're willing to label "openbsd"
mircea_popescu: as opposed to, say randomly, "a piece of junk"
trinque: sure, that much is true.
mircea_popescu: well that much is also the entirety of the problem.
asciilifeform: router is a pretty simple item, incidentally, and a good first candidate for proper total deunixation
trinque: I'm still of the mind that I'd rather eat openbsd than linux
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform that is true.
mircea_popescu: trinque yeah, but i was just making the point for his benefit that his elaborately crafted turd is not so much better than the 40 bux consumer turd.
mircea_popescu: "oh, i never eat at mcdonalds, i always cook all my meals at home out of cheese squares and hormel pork sausage"
asciilifeform: eats packet (on either end), looks at a few fields, either accepts (then rewrites a few fields and shits out of other arse) or rejects (drops on floor)
asciilifeform: so on ad infinitum
trinque: hm yeah, no point of honor in it
asciilifeform: there's no particular reason why a router oughta contain a few 100MB of unixlike, rather than, say, a few kB of fpga config.
mircea_popescu: very true.
asciilifeform wonders whether anybody would actually buy a generic fpgatronic packet eater-shitter
trinque raises hand
mod6: ya
mircea_popescu: if it can be delivered a la FG, and it doesn't cost MUCH more than the current shits, defo.
asciilifeform: would prolly cost roughly what you'd expect it to if you napkin calc.
asciilifeform: ( hundy or so, in small qty , by my reckoning )
mircea_popescu: not bad. current ones are what, fiddybux.
asciilifeform: 'edge' was a hundy, but it had nice steel chassis, etc. ( and also i suspect sold at a loss, stock firmware was brazenly nsaware )
mircea_popescu: ah, if nice chassis and stuff like that, total steal.
mircea_popescu: actually... pogos ?
asciilifeform: pogo's only got 1 nic
mircea_popescu: ah right.
trinque: that pcengines guy's a great one, 3 nics.
asciilifeform: trinque: aha, worx great
trinque: sad thing that they lost the debug port
asciilifeform: that's typically what they're used for
mircea_popescu: does 3 nics mean you could plug it into two internets and have it splice ?
asciilifeform: trinque: theoretically they still have the port, it just dun work without amd magic key
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: it means exactly what your own handmade box with 3 nics means -- can splice, balance, whichever
mircea_popescu: well, i would defo buy a bunch of these if properly set up so they can be ip x in wan1 and ip y in wan2 and then establish sessions through the least decongested one at all times.
mircea_popescu: so different pages in kitten's self-same browser think they're different ips.
mircea_popescu: least congested*
mircea_popescu: in fact, i'd even declare it an absolutely required bit of republican computing, as such. because it does make a first step towards the specifically stated uci goal, "location ambiguity"
mircea_popescu: shit's in gossipd design papers too, and really everywhere.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform can they hang like 8 lan ports off the 2nd nic ? and can they not have fucking wireless, too ? DUN DUN DUN, perfect final hop router.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: 'edge' has 1 usb hole , and it is inside, holds the flash stick it runs of. so not really a place to put wireless. 'pcengines' has 2 usb holes and 3 internal pci-e, plus antenna hole predrilled, so theoretically yes
asciilifeform typically has separate boxes for 80211, in places where he has the latter
mircea_popescu: fuck the fucking wireless.
asciilifeform: possibly i misread q
asciilifeform: as 'can it have wireless'
asciilifeform: but no, neither comes with wireless nic, wtf
asciilifeform: who the fuck would put wireless nic in a final hop router, lol
mircea_popescu: i'd buy shit without wireless in preference of shit with, even if same exact shit.
mircea_popescu: the only fucking reason wireless exists is the dumbass "smartphones". fucking civilisation enders.
asciilifeform: then good noose -- both of the example boxes, contain strictly classic nics
mod6: sweet
mircea_popescu: hm
mircea_popescu: weird 7second+ lag shit.
mircea_popescu: and speaking of freenode bs : "* - A massive thank you to our sponsors and exibitors: Private Internet Access, Canonical, Bytemark, yubico, Open Rights Group, Free Software Foundation, OpenSUSE, Minetest, KDE,"

mircea_popescu: the principle is evident in their tracts, too. "a guide so that ~anyone~ meet girls. you're not fundamentally broken, you just miss this software". right ? the important part of socialism, preserved. or you know, "racism" but never in the sense of "you joe are no good, go away", always in th4e sense of "we are so dedicated to collectiove salvation, we want to sacrifice a soandso identified auslander collective"
mircea_popescu: there's entirely no difference between bush's "no kid left behind" and usgistani "fascist's" no derp left behind.

asciilifeform: d00dz who fell through the floor of their civ for whatever reason
mircea_popescu: these schmucks are not in any sense that ; they wish to "everyone", and wish it so deeply they are willing to take some COLLECTIVE limits, is all.
mircea_popescu: in a sense, the "fascists" are more progressive than the "progressive"
asciilifeform: all 'mass movement' types fit this pattern
mircea_popescu: perhaps.
mircea_popescu: depends how you define "mass movement", if you define by the pattern then definitely.
asciilifeform: you can't filter signal if all you got is noise
mircea_popescu: would you call the push west a mass movement ?
asciilifeform: exclusivity applied to homo redditus gives the null set.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: was speaking of 'movement' in the pol.agitation sense, rather than 'there's gold in them hills'
mircea_popescu: then of course it meets the pattern, you defined it on its basis.
mircea_popescu: anyway, plenty of lulz to be had with the idiots. ask usgistani "extreme right" socialist flavour whether he'd shoot quadriplegic comatose septuagenarian white guy to save life of pregnant woman, race of father unknown.
mircea_popescu: unlike the run of the mill pantsuit, they usually don't have the canned "we don't shoot anyone" cop out
asciilifeform: can also ask the sacramental 'вилку в глаз , или в жопу раз ?'
mircea_popescu: (gentle reminder : the odds of father being same race as mother is a hefty 99.5% today ; about same as it was in times and places where it was actually illegal.)

mircea_popescu: asciilifeform they somehow got accepted by "scientific" efforts in ethics etc at harvard and so.
mircea_popescu: don't ask me wtf sense they';re supposed to make, i dun see it.
asciilifeform: same folx who gave us 'philosophical zombie' etc
asciilifeform: qualia! tulpas!!
mircea_popescu: in other almost lulz
asciilifeform: dafuq's that
mircea_popescu: apparently there was an announced pump of the bch scamcoin
mircea_popescu: which fizzled.
asciilifeform: << via subj. win.
mircea_popescu: lol
mircea_popescu: anyway, numerically, mit&co burned some money to try and make the dead cat bounce towards .11, failed miserably within an hour, .1 looking doubtful.
asciilifeform: also wtf is an 'announced pump' if not redditusbait put out pre dump.
mircea_popescu: for instance, a "conference" ; an "Agreement", other consensuses. the so and so protocol. you name it.
asciilifeform: << from subj also, a lulzy 'Русс Здавайсс'
asciilifeform: ( is there a name for these in engl?? )
mircea_popescu: i always like people who can't distinguish its value from it's time to suck my cock.
mircea_popescu: << which is to say up her own snatch.

asciilifeform: can't think of where else on planet3, pink scenery
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: but it wasn't fiction, this is actual product, i saw it in store
mircea_popescu: hey, i made respectable woman buy herself glitzy gold sequin shoes. it's a sex thing.
asciilifeform: pink, i shit ther not, stocks, grips, straps, etc
mircea_popescu: "but i look like a bimbo" "that's precisely the idea"
asciilifeform: once even saw barrel pink ( how ? and does it crack and flake when fired? i've nfi )
mircea_popescu: pretty sure you can chrome them in colors.
asciilifeform: dun think you can anodize to pink
mircea_popescu: why not ?
asciilifeform: at any rate it looked matte / painted
mircea_popescu: lol. what'd you like the barrel to be ? rifled OR PAINTED ?
mircea_popescu: "can you paint the rifling on ?"
asciilifeform: hey it isn't so much moar idiotic than the ubiquitous, in monkeystans, gilded kalash
mircea_popescu: "our quantum computer-based holographic imaging dept is working on a paint-on rifling solution sir!"
asciilifeform: or for that matter sultan's yatagan with kg of j00lz
mircea_popescu: those items were ceremonial. you've seen the sword of king who actually used it,
mircea_popescu: iirc i linked pic.
asciilifeform: aha and i'm sure chapo had also normal kalash
mircea_popescu: well not in 1500
asciilifeform: point being that pink m16 is equally ceremonial item
a111: Logged on 2017-09-30 01:00 mircea_popescu: hey, i made respectable woman buy herself glitzy gold sequin shoes. it's a sex thing.
asciilifeform: possib.
asciilifeform: you wouldn't do that to a rifle you actually expected to use as-designed tho.
mircea_popescu: contrary to usg media depictions, women that can fire infantry weapons are not usually women you'd like to fuck.
mircea_popescu: everywhere but on sony set -- exists recoil.
asciilifeform: su chix-only sniping school somehow managed.
mircea_popescu: (i don't even mean bulk per se. most fucktoys have eg delicate wrists. can't really use guns effecutally if your two fists together weigh less than a gulp of beer.)
asciilifeform: and there are photos, the chix looked all right.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform they fired from platform yo.
asciilifeform: from earth mostly aha
mircea_popescu: i don't mean they can't fucking drive a car. i mean that they can't throw it.
asciilifeform: modern tinybullet thing has precious little recoil tho
asciilifeform: and massive springs
asciilifeform: ( m16 in particular, it dun even feel like yer firing anything
asciilifeform: )
mircea_popescu: i guess.
mircea_popescu: ah this ar thing fires the short nato round does it.
asciilifeform: really exemplifies 'flavour' of modern american soldiering
mircea_popescu: i dunno, i was thinking of the large rapper stuff automatically.
asciilifeform: ergonomics, no bruises, 11 flavours of icecream.
mircea_popescu: bruise, right ? "permanent bruise of infanterist".
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: there's a 'designated marksman' version firing ye olde winchester long round. but less common , among hobbyists
asciilifeform: mats prolly remembers details.
