deedbot: << Contravex: A blog by Pete Dushenski - Iqaluit, Nunavut: An isolated colonial outpost of a somewhat less isolated colonial outpost of the pockmarked Empire.
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo item is markedly better in that it contains factual details ; still not great in that the details there present are disorganised, not evidently sorted into a complete tree with branches clipped by an obvious importance criteria and so on.
mircea_popescu: definitely acceptable for first month anyway, i'd say.
deedbot: << Trilema - Simple method to moisturize the female
mircea_popescu: !!up RagnarDanneskjol
deedbot: RagnarDanneskjol voiced for 30 minutes.
RagnarDanneskjol: I can still voice no prob. thank
shinohai: gm mircea_popescu
shinohai: Espero k tengas un dia muy bestial! =^.^=
RagnarDanneskjol: I am totally with you on "where is it written" Fuckin A, these Cali chicks always trying to prove something in the sac. I'm having the same conversation all the time - 'where is it written that you have to grind my dick off like a jackhammer before you even start to get wet?
mircea_popescu: i can't say i've had the experience. but... sounds like they're trying to overperform to impress ? not a bad trait it itself.
RagnarDanneskjol: Could have worse problems, yes
shinohai: I shall have to purchase a pin meter and hire the services of 10-20 women to test this hypothesis .....
RagnarDanneskjol: MP - I tried to follow the 'girl worker at a desk in Beijing' conversation, but not quite clear on the requirement there - anything I can do to help? I know lots of ppl in BJ and will be there for work next week.
mircea_popescu: well, we're looking to hire a local.
RagnarDanneskjol: got that much
RagnarDanneskjol: he or she needs to be able to take calls in Chinese , English and be able to do what else approximately?
mircea_popescu: spend the usual 200 hours/week connected to irc and doing whatever clerical tasks provided. must be native chinese speaker with a reasonable command of english, she's not expected to take calls or anything in it.
RagnarDanneskjol: ah ok, will send anyone i find that seems competent. Preference is located in BJ or surrounding areas for some reason?
mircea_popescu: not specifically. can reside wherever, but not much interest in country girl chained-to-the-land mentalities.
jhvh1: asciilifeform: The operation succeeded.
asciilifeform: !~later tell phf << moar, apparently.
jhvh1: asciilifeform: The operation succeeded.
asciilifeform: or hm, possibly nm, not directly bolix, some ancient prototype on pdp...
shinohai: Don't insult teh Fuhrer
asciilifeform: << from same rag, 'They accused him of “structuring” — depositing money in increments of less than $10,000'
mircea_popescu: "not breaking the law is a crime!"
asciilifeform: the '10,000' thing also has an element of 'torbrowserism' -- to spread the notion, among the simple, that 'it has to be >10k to be seen'
asciilifeform: and on top is this, there is ~state~ level copy of same apparatus. e.g. in asciilifeform's local moneychangery, there is a placard, hanging in plain sight , re 'to cachiers: you MUST report all tx of 2k or larger, even if customer was regular for decades, by order of maryland something-or-other commission'
ben_vulpes: unrelatedly, read "incremental approach to compiler construction" recently; reads like a "make you a scheme for great good" for von neumann fans

mircea_popescu: shinohai mmm
mircea_popescu: teh girls agree - that shit's scary.
asciilifeform: i had nfi there were ( what appears to be ) off-the-shelf man-sized vacuum bag
mircea_popescu: that, evidently. side of beef egc.
asciilifeform: this one clearly built as reusable item -- nipple valve
shinohai: You can buy the pansy-ass modified ones with breathing tubes @ local sex shop.
BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> definitely acceptable for first month anyway, i'd say. << The second month will be more organized in the course of going along
asciilifeform: !!up TomServo
deedbot: TomServo voiced for 30 minutes.
TomServo: Ahoy
asciilifeform: where've you been , TomServo
TomServo: Sweltering in the desert heat of another Gentoo quest.
TomServo: Ah, bit more than I can chew, trying to fashion your crapolade masks into a workable Gentoo laptop.
asciilifeform: any particular headaches ?
TomServo: Being rid of systemd isn't so hard.. but dbus is quite a bitch.
trinque: soon as you want a chromium browser you're gonna get it
asciilifeform: iirc somebody had a defang patch for it
asciilifeform: but i never tried
trinque: ah neat

ben_vulpes: lookie, usg agents teaching the world that depositing into their banks is a fucking terrible deal
ben_vulpes: a zillionth of a percent in interest if we don't sieze everything on a whim
asciilifeform: interest-bearing konsoomer accts are mostly a nostalgic memory in natoschwitz.
mircea_popescu: "but there are no alternatives111!!!"
asciilifeform: the 'alternative' of simply having no money, is rather popular
asciilifeform: in other lulz, >> 'reports of death of yet another Saudi prince'
mircea_popescu: i'm sure.
deedbot: << Trilema - How the private messaging function became a paid-user-only item
shinohai: My curiosity is now satiated.
shinohai: I'm just happy to know mircea_popescu isn't building a new kind of stable.
mircea_popescu: stability is key.
hanbot: <asciilifeform> in other lulz, >> 'reports of death of yet another Saudi prince' << meanwhile i was reading this morning "riadyh ritz-carlton now detention center for saudi royals", (, but tuned out when "evidence" seemed to consist of "booking websites" not having rooms available.
asciilifeform: they can have a 1938 if they feel like, wainot
asciilifeform: the moar, the merrier.
mircea_popescu: so what's the rumous mill, the friendly iranians ?
asciilifeform: 'The conference was spearheaded by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, who is pushing an ambitious reform plan that is aimed at reducing the country's dependence on oil over the next decade. The prince is also leading the anti-corruption committee that has the authority to investigate, arrest, issue travel bans and freeze the assets of those it finds corrupt.' << lol!
mircea_popescu: oh i see, it's the even friendlier us ?
asciilifeform: afaik 'anticorruption' only ever means 1 thing
mircea_popescu: "we're running out of money, tax the provinces" ?
mircea_popescu: hey, the saudis have a lot of paper moneyz.
asciilifeform: possibly gotta 1938 the wrong-chirality bluebloods who want to spend it in usg-unapproved ways (e.g. btc) ..?
mircea_popescu: kinda weakly defended, them bluebloods.
mircea_popescu: "richest guy on planet" could not afford tanks and missile launchers enough to dispose of "new anti-corruption unit" ?
mircea_popescu: idjits don't know when to open fire, keep waiting for "a better day".
asciilifeform: as described on trilema and elsewhere, usd ain't money, it's 'money[*]', and the * typically includes 'cannot be spend on defense from usg'
a111: Logged on 2017-10-08 14:18 mircea_popescu: " “The Saudi’s will not be able to link the S-400 with Saudi’s current (US and Europe-sourced) infrastructure, nor will they be able to connect the S-400 with US systems." << says who the everloving fuck.
deedbot: << Trilema - Alexandru Osvald "Pastorel" Teodoreanu
mircea_popescu: shinohai part 2 of the lulz is that the userbase is now revolting. "Well screw that then. This website is a big hoax."
mircea_popescu: turns out it's not the brightest idea to deny people access to the body of a message if you're gonna send that subject line via email.
shinohai rushes to set up "" and offer unlimited messaging and access for 5 bux a month .....
mircea_popescu: for srsly.
mircea_popescu: answer't.
asciilifeform: answ'x2.
mircea_popescu: !~later tell apeloyee let's get teh guy involved as well.
jhvh1: mircea_popescu: The operation succeeded.
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: got it
diana_coman: hmm, I suppose I could run a trial test on a batch of generated public exponents with co-prime rather than strict prime requirements, to see what small factors are there but not sure if this will say a lot really in itself; fwiw I don't feel particularly comfortable with the idea of a non-prime public exponent but I don't have mathematical proof for weakness introduced, hence my question
asciilifeform: diana_coman: see thread
asciilifeform: ( at trilema, that is )
diana_coman refreshes
asciilifeform: in other lulz, comcast ( mega-monopoly isp in good chunk of usa ) is down.
asciilifeform: all of it.
ben_vulpes: was shitty for a bit there
ben_vulpes: bgp say my bofhs
mircea_popescu: shinohai that dun look too good.
mircea_popescu: when's teh stuff supposed to come online again ?
davout: ~nov. 16 iirc
mircea_popescu: ah right.
mircea_popescu: well, 10 day futures at 10% is terrible in and of itself.
mircea_popescu: iirc the confederate republic scored this low after lee surrended and not at any point before
