RagnarDanneskjol: nice one Pete
RagnarDanneskjol: mircea_popescu I have a couple of translators sorting out their IRCs today and should be present within the next 24 hrs or so. I've only done some basic screening - they are all native Chinese, speak English well enough and are available to do translation work. Besides speaking to them, I have NOT gone through any further process of elimination - ie. collected writing samples to have compared, etc.
RagnarDanneskjol: Don't know if you already have anyone in place for comparing/assessing outputs.. In the past I've used colleagues in Beijing to help screen candidate writing samples (cause I don't read or speak Ornamental). I'm happy to have someone do the same if it helps. Otherwise, will just let you take over from here.

BingoBoingo: I suspected as much when I made it to Montevideo instead of Guantanamo.
shinohai: Careful BingoBoingo it may be a carefully crafted 3-D simulation.
BingoBoingo: I don't think USG can simulate the smell of cannabis smoke, however the Brazilians here for the "expo cannabis" are departing either for home or Punta del Este
BingoBoingo: In other news, the Brazilians at the hostel are easily impressed. One of the guys staying there was local actor with an IMDB profile, but el gringo had the ability to enjoy the cool night air shirtless.
mircea_popescu: not like making an imdb profile takes more than ten minutes.
asciilifeform: wasn't ben_vulpes's chix a 'imdb-profiled' notable ?
BingoBoingo: Eh, there were some film credits there. The German girl was impressed by the credits, but did not look as good as the Brazilain girls. Maybe if the German girl was from 10-20 years ago she could compete against the locals and the Brazillians? Today, no.
mircea_popescu: on the strength of http://trilema.com/2014/ill-pay-for-your-tits/ all rthose chicks are imdb-notable.

BingoBoingo: Also anyone want to come to Montevideo and hang out, drop off some servers? Apparently you have until March before the weather turns London-esque.
asciilifeform: in other noose, turned up that the pilot opterons in asciilifeform's torture room have a disappointing onboard raid that supports only sata2 (3Gb/s). upgrading'em with sata3 raidtrons (6Gb/s)
mats: you have to pay to get on imdb anyways
mats: asciilifeform: what sata3 raid card are you using?
asciilifeform: mats: 3ware . ( afaik nobody else has ever made an iron raid that worked half a shit's worth )
mats: has anyone documented it?
asciilifeform: mats: more specifically ?
mats: the 3ware sata3 card
asciilifeform: document means what ? i've been using'em in gentoo boxes for decade+, fwiw.
asciilifeform: or is mats asking whether anyone's reversed the thing down to transistor ? or wat
asciilifeform: afaik not it, and not any other disk controller either
asciilifeform: or for that matter disk
asciilifeform: or southbridge. or or or.
mats: ok ok
asciilifeform: nobody's properly reversed damn near anything
asciilifeform: ( not, at any rate, publicly . )
mats: do you have a gentoo recipe for apu1?
asciilifeform: mats: not specifically. it's a standard opteron, with the exception of no vga. ( use serial console. )
asciilifeform: and given as it uses linuxbios (coreboot) exclusively ( there was in fact no turdware bios afaik ever released for'em at all ) it makes it inviting to stuff the kernel into rom
asciilifeform: but it isn't mandatory.
asciilifeform: unless yer kernel is monstrously fat ( and why would it be ) -- it'll sit down in the rom.
mats: any reading materials on how i can do that?
asciilifeform: do which
mats: stuffing kernel into rom
asciilifeform: there is ( or was ? ) a tarball on the vendor's www.
asciilifeform: oh hah it's gone innit.
asciilifeform: i'ma have to clean up and genesis mine. pretty heavy chore, it is full of extraneous matter.
asciilifeform: if yer getting an apu1, mats , go straight for the apu1d4 .
asciilifeform: and ideally get several, they are getting scarce.
mats: i have two on my desk, been toying with centos on it
asciilifeform: mats: didja solder in the sage header ?
mats: its on the to-do list
mats: i have two gizmo1 kits also
asciilifeform: those are usable out-of-the-box

BingoBoingo: But recognize estados unidos

BingoBoingo: Brazilian seems to be their default guess for foreigners that aren't obviously Argentine
BingoBoingo: phf: They may confuse it with a panama hat. For a nominally latin country I am somehow more tan on the exposed areas of my skin than many of the local adult males.
phf: same with me, like most slavs, after about a week of sun, i bronze
BingoBoingo: I redden and then it shifts to brown
BingoBoingo: The local men range from ghastly pale to light brown with some outliers at the african end of the spectrum. The local women range from olive or slightly tanned to medium roast coffee with fairly even gradient distribution so far observed.
BingoBoingo: The closest site to US urbania so far were some terrified dominican tourists and their scared ~10 year old child decked out in "thug chainz"
BingoBoingo: For other gringos contemplating travel to Montevideo, so far in my experience voseo has not been a big deal. However my ears are still adjusting to yeshimo.

lobbesbot: AUCTION # 163: The very notebook displayed in http://trilema.com/2017/of-ducks-and-lameness/ ! Free shipping anywhere in the world included. Heard: 1mn from danielpbarron overbidding lobbes Ending: 2017-12-18 20:43:32 UTC (167 hours 22 mins)

deedbot: trinque rated lobbes 2
lobbes bows at trinque
lobbes: For people in #t who may not be aware. (The fees only apply to those who start an auction. Bids are always phree): http://logs.minigame.bz/2017-09-11.log.html#t01:43:33
lobbesbot: Logged on 2017-09-11 01:43:33: <lobbes> New fees are now as follows: 2000 ECu per hour for auctions ending with a sale, 10000 ECu per/hr for auctions ending in no sale
lobbes: Collected every quarter. Can be paid via eulora or deedbot
mircea_popescu: shinohai nah. BUT! i did encounter a massive old world item, which i will presently show. though other thinjhs in queue. so after that.
mircea_popescu: lobbes you might want to reconsider thouse ; iirc they were pegged back when btc was 1k or so.
lobbes: Alternatively, there's always the traditional % off of sale. But iirc the fees were introduced to curb spamming in channel of 'derp' auctions
lobbes: Which flat per hour makes moar sense
lobbes: I got some noodling to do it seemz
mircea_popescu: what's this come too, lessee
mircea_popescu: !~calc 17133.3184732 * 168 * 1e5 / 1e9
jhvh1: mircea_popescu: 17133.3184732 * 168 * 1e5 / 1e9 = 287.83975034976004
mircea_popescu: so it's gonna cost me... 300 bucks if this auction ends up unbidden ?
lobbes: Yeahh... hm
mircea_popescu: seems like... two degrees of magnitude off. unless i'm fucking the math up.
mircea_popescu: which i think it must be because it was never this expensive.
lobbes: Ah, wait. Shouldn't it be: 17133.3184732 * 168 * 1e4 / 1e9 ?
mircea_popescu: yes, it should.
mircea_popescu: and yet... it STILL seems two degrees of magnitude off.
mircea_popescu: the principal consideration here being that if you charge more than maybe a quarter or so, you're basically paying for someone to make a competitor.
mircea_popescu: which is imo kinda wasteful at this stage.
danielpbarron: heh, my early adopter privilege blinded me to this
lobbes: Makes sense. Yeah, should prolly only cost you roughly 3 bux if no sale using sane fees
mircea_popescu: danielpbarron i know, right ?
mircea_popescu: tis wise to undershoot early and keep the loot for later.
lobbes: Ok, I can see this reasoning. I'm thinking I'll reduce fees to: 100 ecu per hour no sale, 20 per hour if sale
mircea_popescu: that moment when there's three different singlet earrings on your coffee table and you can't find your spare camera battery among them
lobbes: Ftr, these reduced fees will be applied retroactively for all Q4 billz. For next year, I'm thinking I may switch to the "only pay once you hit certain hour threshold" model.
mod6: <+asciilifeform> incidentally folx: each of you who considers himself 'graduate' of an ffa chapter, consider signing << fwiw, I have held back signing on ch1 since I can not still build it out of the box, successfully.
mircea_popescu: lobbes remind me to give you a chetty stick next we meet ; for greater glory.
mircea_popescu: not even sure what they;'re worth by now, but prolly a benji or so.
mircea_popescu: mod6 what croaks ?
mod6: There was some commenting out of the Restrictions that I needed to do. If/when I get a successful environment to build it, then will sign.
trinque: would probably be useful to say which restrictions.
trinque: could point to platform limitations, or wreckers in particular ada version, or...
mod6: this was supposidly because im running 2015 adacore. which i can buy. but have had even less success with Adacore 2016 and 2017. not to say that I won't get the incantaiton correct at somepoint, but for now, I can't build it successfully.
mod6: <+trinque> would probably be useful to say which restrictions. << it's in the logs.
trinque: ah k
danielpbarron: lobbes, i think i still owe you from a previous quarter and you should price that based on whatever it was back then
mod6: I only mention this again simply because this is the 2nd time I've seen alf ask for sigs.
mod6: And I'm taking the time to explain why I have not.
lobbes: danielpbarron, sounds like a plan. Lemme know if you wanna settle via eulora vs deedbot. Either way I'm in the mines atm, I can settle stuff tonight though
lobbes: mircea_popescu, deal!
danielpbarron: whichever you want. i'm available in eulora right now
danielpbarron: oh in the mines doesn't mean in game lol
mircea_popescu: this discussion spurred me to realise that eg my 4k pile of high-quality coarse cordage is thereby worth like... 50mn ECu or so, nominally ? leaving how it would prolly sell for more than 100% (duh), that's likle... a toyota's worth of IMAGINARY coarse cordage ?
mircea_popescu: im not even sure there exist that many shops which keep that much cordage around altogether.
mircea_popescu: including any marina outfitter i ever saw. 8k dollars would be like what, a roomfull ?
danielpbarron: by my math a 100 USD chetty stick would come out to 5mn quality. you have these??
mircea_popescu: o it would ?
mircea_popescu: lesee since i brought it up
danielpbarron: i have several hundred 200k quality from before the split, which i guess are worth more than 3 USD a pop
mircea_popescu: danielpbarron i have 367k ones ; they were 36k and then the float happ[ened
mircea_popescu: i guess i was off by a zero again ?
mircea_popescu: bitcoin plays right into my peculiar form of mathslexia ; i am thoroughly and forever degree of magnitude confused.
asciilifeform: oh hey the auction thing is interesting
mircea_popescu: now if only we had a bitbet to lose our shit betting on what eventual price the shit ends up sold at...
mircea_popescu: INFINITE POWER
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: maybe at some point we auction prototype rng ( asciilifeform has a few , mircea_popescu also, and somebody else i think )
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform im not selling mine ; but you can yes. tho prolly too soon.
mircea_popescu: anyway. republican autarky progressing nicely / intensifies.
asciilifeform: i have 2x a 'массово габаритный макет' if you will , of the FG pcb , also prolly auctionfodder candidate
mircea_popescu: i propose in a decade or two we all retire and live off the auctioning of memorabilia.
mircea_popescu: you know, exactly like the ww2 generation did.
asciilifeform: !!up fromloper
deedbot: fromloper voiced for 30 minutes.
fromloper: asciilifeform, have you read this? http://www.textfiles.com/bitsavers/pdf/symbolics/I_Machine/
fromloper: this seems to be Symbolics' internal docs for the Ivory. are they sufficient to develop a clone? I've tried to find previous discussions of this particular subset of docs in the logs but didn't find anything.
asciilifeform: Framedragger: not only read, but have the dead tree
asciilifeform: and nope, sadly nowhere near sufficient.
mircea_popescu: danielpbarron it just means in a different kind of game. a very sad one. like https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PSK7KWye0n0&feature=youtu.be
fromloper: the macroinstruction set doc was actually published as a dead tree book?
asciilifeform: fromloper: it is part of the reason why the snap* emulators don't properly work
asciilifeform: fromloper: not published as such. but was in my docs pile next to the actual docs.
asciilifeform: !#s ivory
asciilifeform: fromloper ^ start here
fromloper: I see. I was trying to reverse-engineer snap4 from the source code but postponed it due to lack of time.
mircea_popescu: fromloper consider getting a name ?
fromloper: I had a registered nickname on freenode a while ago, I'll try to remember the password

mod6: ya. it's in the logs. i can dig it up if needed. but i believe my problem to be environmental and somehow to related to adacore.

asciilifeform: i tested on both adacore and gnuist

mats: i keep seeing 'traumatic brain injury' in your statements, BingoBoingo
mircea_popescu: so i re-watched la grande belezza for like the twelfth time. it's possibly the greatest film ever made. or maybe i'm just slow -- for instance, only now did it finally occur to me that the giulio moneta, "uno dei dieci latitanti piu ricercati del mondo" was in fact a straight reference to m m denaro.
mircea_popescu: aaand here's a bit for trinque 's humanities studies : "Dies irae, dias illa solved saeculum in favilla teste David cum Sibylla ; quantus tremor est futurus quando Judex est venturus cuncta stricte discussurus!"
a111: Logged on 2017-11-08 21:13 lobbes: and yeah, I overlooked that I apparently had to also remove expiration on the sub -explicitly- (via gpg --edit-key). Even though it was showing the sub as 'expiration: none' after I had removed expiration on the pub way back when
mircea_popescu: i guess his is shorter
trinque: lobbes: oh yeah, that machine is quite likely to have your old key
trinque will also look into what floppy lispism resulted in that URL
lobbes: word. I'm in no real rush either way (and I think I only had around 0.001 on there)
trinque: lobbes: give it another pull
lobbes: and confirmed: balance matches
trinque: mircea_popescu: will put that in the study queue. something about visions of angry, loosened/secularized days, maybe? gotta cram more tenses into my skull.
mircea_popescu: sibylla, yes ? and david ?
mircea_popescu: it's like... a 900 year old text about cryptoconcerns.
trinque: http://www.preces-latinae.org/thesaurus/Hymni/DiesIrae.html << neat, found full text
mircea_popescu: the 1800s anglican englishversion is not bad, either.
trinque: is the "illa" there not "they" or "those", as in referring to the subjects at end of the first line?
trinque: can't tell if the translation is just macroexpanding "dies irae" with the "dreadful day" or if there's another "illa"
trinque: could see the former, "look kid, your language takes saying it twice to understand irae"
mircea_popescu: i suspect twice may be an understatement
mircea_popescu: "nobody could have predicted", after all.

asciilifeform: oh hey hey hey lbj
asciilifeform: congrats mod6
asciilifeform: trinque: i've wondered for some time , is the thing where your walletron throws pgpciphered matter into the greater void, as in e.g. http://btcbase.org/log/2017-12-12#1749739 , without the addressee's name in the line -- deliberate design choice ?
asciilifeform: and if so -- why
asciilifeform: often the link pops up hour or moar after the invocation, and i end up clicking, expecting traditional (i.e. plaintext) deedbot material

ben_vulpes: the linked one is not one of those "hours later" instances tho
