BingoBoingo: "To put specific numbers on this, the report notes that studies consistently find that more than 90% of prison rapes are inter-racial and racially motivated. Blacks are found to be some 80% of the perpetrators, and whites are the vast majority of victims. Again, this is easily accessible in a peer-reviewed report published at a mainstream outlet. (So how are desegregated prisons working out for us now, huh?)"
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo i'd say they're working great.
mircea_popescu: contrary to pretense, under 1% of those are actual rapes, as defined by the only proper measure : "did you fight first ?"

diana_coman: ahahaha "like mircea popescu or whatever his name is, but even with him i suspect he's not anywhere near as rich as he wants people to think he is - it doesn't add up; poorly fitted suits, average looking hotel suites/condos, spends all his time living in cheap shitholes which is precisely what white people who have money to live abroad but aren't rich do)" ; from ^^
mircea_popescu: though mostly quoted for the fundamental prpblem -- these are college educated or educating esltards (maybe not ALL at MIT, but if you're on the internet.en you're either out of or currently in college) WHO DO NOT KNOW HOW TO BECOME MILLIONAIRES.
mircea_popescu: can this be underscored enough ? i doubt it.
mircea_popescu: the only fucking reason, point and selling characteristic of anglo college is "making money", and there's no quantum below 1 million dollars.
mircea_popescu: yet... they do not know how to do it. AVERAGE salaries in the collegiate fields are about 100k/year, that means a 1mn income EACH DECADE, for AVERAGE performance
mircea_popescu: and these kids dunno how to be millionaires.
mircea_popescu: wut gives ?
mircea_popescu: complete and utter failure of the "social contract", at that. it's like a sailing school that fails to produce sailors, this ourdemocracy that fails to produce millionaires.

mircea_popescu: the complaint re mp's perceived lifestyle neartly folds into the general problem : "i think mp might be a millionaire as usg defined that term for me, but it seems in a sense fake, because he doesn't display the markers usg trained me to recognize. i wonder, if usg controls my perception of my own wants in the sense of defining how their perceptible form looks, why i don't get to be a millionaire ?"
mircea_popescu: the discussion is readily mappable to its perfect equivalent which we oh so often rehash here : "i wonder what microsoft issued extension makes my operating system secure ?"
mircea_popescu: "tmsr claims to be more powerful than the us, but i have my doubts, because their software doesn't even unicode."
mircea_popescu: yes, schmucky mcschmuckersson, the REASON your software can't be powerful is EXACTLY that your software unicodes. not for the unicode itself, but for what the unicode IS.

asciilifeform: in other not-yet-noose, asciilifeform considered the q of : can show a lower bound for how quickly (i.e. bits leaked per bit of ciphertext sent ) any n-bit-keyed symmetriccipher leaks its key , from purely informationtheoretical grounds ? or not.
mircea_popescu: not an idle consideration
asciilifeform: imho it is an approachable thing. but i haven't yet the pill.
asciilifeform: could restate as the q of whether 'distance from ideal otp' is a quantifiable matter .
asciilifeform: and then proceed to something resembling concept of carnot efficiency, but for cipher.
mircea_popescu: this'd be lovely.
mircea_popescu: spealking of which, http://78.media.tumblr.com/f06516359073a4f18eec03d850c7e8b9/tumblr_ne5qx4NTyZ1u1p6qjo1_1280.jpg

mircea_popescu: speaking of which : one girl has been in the kitchen since daybreak (bout 8 hours ago) cooking non stop.
mircea_popescu: she's tallied up all the sugar we saved, comes to almost a quarter ton!
mircea_popescu: cranberry sauce recipe goes "mix one cup of liquid with cup and a half of sugar" and so following.
mircea_popescu: "basically i multiply the portions by 8 and divide the sugar also by 8"
mircea_popescu: 1/64th of the recommended dosage is just about enough to be exaggerate for normal human!
BingoBoingo: <asciilifeform> hey BingoBoingo wtf is a 'testosterona' ? boiled goat balls, straight from 1950s quackeries ? << direct translation of testosterone. Probably what's being marketed is a depot formulation of testosterone attached to a long chain esther

diana_coman: http://btcbase.org/log/2017-11-23#1742497 <- oh, hey, thank you; ftr I took it, changed the type'Image things and then it compiled perfectly fine (with gnatmake 4.9.3, gcc 4.9.4)
diana_coman: fwiw I remember at some point I ran into weird issues with gnat that were apparently due to mismatched gcc version
whaack: diana_conman: cool, when I get back to it I'll try switching out my gnat/gcc first

shinohai: I'm thinking about buying a server in the North Sea
diana_coman had this flash image of shinohai paddling in the North Sea atop a server
shinohai: nah there is this crazy family that has a micronation in the middle of the ocean.
shinohai: i just introduced them to trb
diana_coman: what is a micronation?
shinohai: they have a rack of servers and i can buy one lol
diana_coman: oh, the Floating Bear sort of thing, lol; close to "atop a server"
shinohai: very much so! :D
shinohai: im going to be tmsr ambassador to sealand! xD
phf: ok, i have some idea why http://btcbase.org/log/2017-11-23#1742652 because i've done it in the past. when you're debugging issues for complete newbs, you basically instinctually looking for two things, imbalanced parenthesis and misuse of intrinsics. yeah you could copy paste that stuff to your emacs buffer, but if what you're doing is essentially social service work, you get burned out on doing deep help pretty fast, hence you want to keep it in the p

phf: i've seen properly indented code before, that never the less lost or misplaced parenthesis here or there. naggum actually had a rant somewhere how most experienced lispers actually discover nesting issues by doing reindent. but if you're a newb, you're going to lose a parent, but keep the code shape the same

shinohai: sovereignty ftw
shinohai: i want to at least host my blog there
BingoBoingo: How much do boxes there run, and you've been blogging?
shinohai: 1000 /yr and whoreticulture of course
shinohai: i guess i could write about the #trilema-church project
phf: trilema-church i think has to be a danielpbarron project
mircea_popescu: so here's a something : on one hand i very much like https://pbs.twimg.com/media/CyX33qsWIAAdMW3.jpg ; on the other hand i am kinda considering hiring a court artist for my own personal self-aggrandization.
mircea_popescu: the idiot author of the linked piece is too fucking dumb to answer emails to his god damned own contact email as provided by patreon, notwithstanding he evidently is fucking starving. ho the fuck even told these schmucks they're at liberty to you know, "make own decisions" such as not pick up phone from god ?
mircea_popescu: but anyway -- does anyone want to go through all of deviantart until they find either something like that or something that doesn't suck ? for the purpose of helping the first tmsr appointed artist get his appointment ?
mircea_popescu: (deviantart here used as metasyntactic notation for "whatever shitty forum these mortidifame gather upon")
shinohai: i can try mircea_popescu
shinohai: thats awesum
mircea_popescu: ok but intensively plox. "can try" as in you know, i checked out 1mn pix.
shinohai: oh ill bug the oc artist above intensively
mircea_popescu: lmao no no
mircea_popescu: OTHER ones is the idea.
mircea_popescu: this one... whatever, learn to answer.
shinohai: u just want to look @ similar ones?
BingoBoingo: Not picking up phone from God is disqualifying via character defect
mircea_popescu: i don't even care if they're similar per se, just as long as they're good.
mircea_popescu: and show the proper values, such as demeaning women, bare cunts, etcetera.
mircea_popescu: shinohai basically just go through all the pages of https://www.deviantart.com/cartoons/whats-hot/ i guess
mircea_popescu: http://btcbase.org/log/2017-11-23#1742727 << wouldn't something like "run it by candi" work as an infinitely better solution to this problem than html-css ?

phf: misplaced parenthesis is tricky to debug from the error messages, in fact i usually can't. i can usually intuit that the error is probably a result of misplaced parent, but then i still have to go an track it down
phf: i mean, a _misplaced_ parenthesis will result in a valid parse, but the error is going to be something along the lines of "error while parsing arguments to special form" or "argument x is not a number" or "function call with n arguments, but wants exactly m"
phf: hardcoregaming101 "modernized" their website, original http://hg101.kontek.net/, new http://www.hardcoregaming101.net. it took me a while to realize that "new" site is not in fact a lost domain. in the process old site is still there, but half the links are broken. welcome to "modern"!
mircea_popescu: well the old one was prolly confusing
phf: asciilifeform: how where do you source your cat5e? i've been using a leftover roll from my contracting days, but it finally ran out. went on amazon, not only are prices somewhat suspect (300m for $40?), but comments say that they cable doesn't actually conform to spec (wrong insulation, wrong conductor, etc.)
phf: /how //
mircea_popescu: 100% is made in china and the chinese don't respect any specs other than some stuff written on an old napkin in the head office.

phf: asciilifeform: ty, and another question, where was the code for that com1 to display thing that you had?
phf: heh, we now also have a heathen logger.
mircea_popescu: i invited him, actually.
mircea_popescu: possibly the most logged channel on freenode, by now.
phf: i like some features that he has, live updates, also the convention of <date>#<id>;<filter>
phf: err, wait that actually made no sense..
mircea_popescu: seems to work, like a search.
phf: well, right, it highlights a specific post, but also filters, so ...#;foo works as a whole day filter
mircea_popescu: not a terrible idea, imo.
mircea_popescu: in fact, a per-day filtered-histogram could conceivably be very fucking useful hunting down large topics.
mircea_popescu: put one pixel line per day, from top to bottom, counting the occurences of $filter.
phf: that would be a useful feature, that's almost like a part of search functionality
mircea_popescu: sorta numerically enhanced topic finding.
mircea_popescu: not mandatory js at all, can do this server side
mircea_popescu: make a call like histograph?derpage, puts out a png with the histograph for that item
phf: oh you mean your example, not what whitequark has
mircea_popescu: well yes.
mircea_popescu: i don't think the functionality as such is particularly useful, i prefer the search. however the perspective actually is, filters would prolly empower the searching mind.
mircea_popescu: some kind of noun density or such.
mircea_popescu: phf you know what you could do, add it to search pages. would that be a lot of cpu ? to spit out a png maybe 2k x 200 tall, and link it from a compressed version on the search page.
