RagnarDanneskjol: It's just a model of how I do my own air gap wallet signing and I thought I would build it into something else. No it's not concrete or whatever I'll go ahead and delete all of it right now so you don't have to worry about it. I guess the date was a time frame I wanted to put on myself for some reason.

asciilifeform: it's a public www, lol
asciilifeform: and offers paid ad space, last i saw
asciilifeform: nobody took ? pity
RagnarDanneskjol: Yes I keep things on public www so it forces me to maintain and update my content. I think the adspace is just leftover from the template I borrowed from drudgereport
asciilifeform: here's what i dungetatall, RagnarDanneskjol : why you never showed up here with the sane-wallets thing ? there are folx who are interested , could have worked with you
asciilifeform: you could have had an actual product, instead of the empty rubbish www
RagnarDanneskjol: I am just busywith work, often reading the logs in several weeks behind and doing extensive requisite study to actually keep up with you boys. I'm happy to commit some time when it avails.... I've even gone and upset the boss now because I didn't have enough time to train ornamental candidates on VPN/irc stuff
ben_vulpes: i don't see this actually forcing you to maintain and update the content either
asciilifeform: this would appear to be the problem, RagnarDanneskjol , you are apparently unable to distinguish 'ornament' from function

mircea_popescu: o totally, check that out.
mircea_popescu: apparently it only sticks if you tell it to a girl!
mircea_popescu: for the record, i find it impossible to discern sense and nonsense in this dijkstra article, they're so tightly coupled together.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: which one ?
asciilifeform: d00d wrote a megatonne
mircea_popescu: so, the differential of computing speed and movement speed are not directly comparable as he proposes.
mircea_popescu: there's no substantial difference "that has to be accounted for" between bridging the san francisco bay and bridging the mostly dry three metre wide obscure rivulet in ontario that are due to "hey, 3 degrees of magnitude distance ! 12 degrees of magnitude water debit!!" etcetera nonsense.
mircea_popescu: one's in the winter and the other's in the ocean are the important considerations there.
mircea_popescu: applying the "o noes, computer is much faster now" meme as if it meant something only drives home the nonsensical view that "computer is faster". which it fucking isn't, computer of today is well slower than computer of 1980.
asciilifeform: imho better analogy is what happened to telegraphers. recall the fate of the first transatlantic cable ?
mircea_popescu: this is not an isolated flaw : his notion that "oh, those dumb spanyards who didn't think at university" is a typically ustardian misretelling of counter-imagined history.
mircea_popescu: in point of fact, his nonsensical discussion of radical novelties has one effect and one effect only : to drive the pantsuit narrative.
asciilifeform: the cable was destroyed as a result of a very typically 'anglotard' chain of errors; entirely like the microcomp
mircea_popescu: there is ~something~ there being parasitized by all the nonsense, but it is screamingly NOT what he tries to make it be.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform go on ?
asciilifeform: cable, at astonishing expense, was laid; and soon afterwards destroyed by overvoltaging. the operators had nfi that impedance exists, 'book larnin'', and were not satisfied with ~1 baud signal rate , upped the volts...
mircea_popescu: yes but how do you conenct this ?
asciilifeform: the 'degrees of magnitude' item
mircea_popescu: ie they expected a continuous process where n osuch thing was available ?
asciilifeform: correct.
mircea_popescu: this is substantially fine ; but as presented it's a jumble of disjoints. resistance of the medium is in there, but not alone.
asciilifeform: entirely different physical effects ( and exacerbated by the pitiful insulation of the period ) over the distance involved.
mircea_popescu: (quite literal example, impedance is the EXACT name of resistance of medium to em )
asciilifeform: difference in degree becomes a difference in kind. dijkstra imho oughta have mentioned the cable, to stand up his argument
asciilifeform: as it is, there is very little for it in his article to stand up on
mircea_popescu: instead he mentions that some guy said nobody will ever run a 5 second 100m.
mircea_popescu: which is a bizzare choice in all senses.
asciilifeform: with the degree of magnitude faster/more capacitous comp , it is ~stupidity~, in the form of complexicrud, that accumulates fatally. and , worst of all, dijkstra knew this
asciilifeform: showed every symptom of knowing
asciilifeform: but never afaik dared to state the entire case directly.
mircea_popescu: other than saying so and starting a republic.
asciilifeform: errrytime mircea_popescu says this, i find myself trying to picture a pre-bitcoin republic, and end up with mental eggog
mircea_popescu: "how to program if you cannot" is an absolutely fine soundbyte ; and correctly descriptive. but reading the stuff it is mouted in, i can't help but think maybe he meant something entirely else than what it self-evidently means.
asciilifeform: what kind of republic ought e.g. dijkstra to have declared ? a meatspace venetian one ?
mircea_popescu: people have bene FAFFING ABOUT with "bdsm" and "castles in europe" for FIFTY YEARS.
mircea_popescu: dont' give me the "woulda but couldn't". fucktarded bikers had their own republic.

asciilifeform: and likewise all the things he undeplored
asciilifeform: that's what being old does. errything inside is old.
mircea_popescu: here's a newsflash for you : bikers are mostly old.
mircea_popescu: there's no 19yo biker. there's mostly 50-something war veteran.
asciilifeform: the ones seen at parades -- old. but i suspect they dun much vroom, or otherwise the statistic would do its work neh
mircea_popescu: the pic linked at some point, with the two sluts being fucked on bikes in the 60s, was remarkable specifically because those two guys might've been the yhoungest bike owners in history.
asciilifeform likes to go to , watch , these parades, they are held every year not so far from where asciilifeform lives

mircea_popescu: i deplore the archeologists of the future ; for whatever they do they shall be wrong.
mircea_popescu: shinohai hey, i spent more on weapons systems than computers this year, for the first time since republic.
asciilifeform: shinohai: lulzy, but seems to be rerun ( or was there a piece recently entirely like this one, but with differently named muppet )
mircea_popescu: as the saying goes, "and next year -- we launch rockets"
mircea_popescu: either that or jerusalem. something.
shinohai: Well, republic needs missles too.
mircea_popescu: any time they're ready, bring it.
asciilifeform: i suspect that main enemy of mircea_popescu's weapons systems is tropical damp, rust. the other enemy seems to prefer 'soft' liquishit to actual action, for whatever reason.
mircea_popescu: well, you know what the default reason is. "they would, if they dared".
asciilifeform: it never quite made sense to me, from my admittedly distant and dark perch, why lizard hitler ~not~ yet dared. it ain't as if he'd have to eat the lead himself.
asciilifeform: nameless 19yos will eat.
mircea_popescu: will eat my left foot will eat. legions do not cross the rubicon because the "emperor" knows full well they'll join the barbarians the next night.
mircea_popescu: "In what we denote as "primitive societies", the superstition that knowing someone's true name gives you magic power over him is not unusual. We are hardly less primitive: why do we persist here in answering the telephone with the most unhelpful "hello" instead of our name?" << motherfucker. because if we TELL the name instead of hello, we therefore have no resources left to verify whether the other party called us or just ca

hanbot: if i want to understand what a genesis is, how it is made, independent of trb, say
ben_vulpes: a genesis is just a vpatch against the null codebase, results in pure additions and antecedents of false throughout.
asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: i think the q was, whether this is put into writing properly somewhere.
asciilifeform: ( other than the l0gz )
asciilifeform: and afaik the answ is nope
ben_vulpes: i suppose.
asciilifeform: hey hanbot , wanna write the Troo Vtronic Likbez ?
mircea_popescu: the item is actually years old, and in point of fact the semantic content of eg "v" has changed, if subtly, almost each month since then.
mircea_popescu: here's one example : he calls it "the most serene republic of bitcoin", which was the style at the time. but in practice we omit the bitcoin part most often than not don't we.
mircea_popescu: amusingly, sorta how "born in the usa" turned into "made in us"
hanbot: here's an example: i've made a genesis of mp-wp by vdiffing against an empty dir of the same name; this when pressed results in all desired files + copy of each file appended with ".orig". leaving aside that i don't even currently know why the fuck this happened, never seen it before in a press: i don't even know what to point out to ascertain that this is in fact NOT what is supposed to occur! if i was teaching a girl to do it, and she were the
hanbot: inquisitive sort, what would i say?
mircea_popescu: this is a remarkable point.
mircea_popescu: so polarbeard made the patches "wrongly". fine, it happens to be true. how is it verified ?
ben_vulpes: hanbot: pressing into an empty dir?
ben_vulpes: i have never seen this wonder myself
hanbot: not empty, contains v itself, but no other mp-wp files
asciilifeform: hanbot: i'd like to know how you got '.orig'. afaik this only happens when merging is enabled. no vtron i know of , enables it

mircea_popescu: but even if one could say "well,premature to write a v compendium, not yet even stable yet", the greater point remains. there's been a dispute of tabs and spaces in the logs. nowhere else. how would one know to look ? there's been a dispute of alphabets and trees and MANY Things that constitute the "Subtle" in the above "subtle chjanges each month".
mircea_popescu: v is esentially found today as an enchanted castle surrounded by 5000 rakes upon which the prince is welcome to step, and once he stepped he can come to us and by the shape in his forehead we can describe the rake he stepped on.
