ben_vulpes: i look forward to the flensing in the morrow
ave1: thanks!, I updated the post.

ave1: Yeah, I know! I wanted to squeeze in this comment, but did not find a good position in the table to put the reference in. I'll just let it stand as a separate comment without number.
a111: Logged on 2018-02-28 00:50 mircea_popescu: ave1 also possibly your comments table is ill-formatted ? there's no 4.
a111: Logged on 2018-02-28 00:48 mircea_popescu: diana_coman can we include a report of compiling eucrypt with his barebone runtime ?
ave1: diana_coman: will you be depending on interfaces.c or interfaces.c.strings packages (I'v done some initial work on modified versions of these that do not need a second stack)
diana_coman: ave1, unfortunately yes
ave1: the fun of C strings, I hope you can use the procedure versions of To_Ada and To_C.
diana_coman: ave1, tbh I've been trying to avoid .c.strings at least but atm it looks set to still make its way in because calling ada stuff from c and getting char * result is an even worse mess with interfaces.c only (i.e. with char_array vs chars_ptr)
diana_coman: if you have experience with taming this particular kraken I'd be very happy to hear of it
ave1: mostly the other way around, but I'll be happy to help out. (I'm slowly reading through the gnat runtime library code, I just realized I should write more notes while reading through this...)
diana_coman: ave1, more notes sounds like a *very* good idea; mixing with char * c style is anyway a pain no matter how it's done
diana_coman: notes on reading through gnat runtime library code sounds like great blog fodder
ave1: Yes, as soon as you start a blog, fodder seems to be all around you.

ave1: BTW for an Ada IRC bot experiment, I'm working with buffers on both sides (ADA <--> C) and moving bytes one by one. This seems to deliver the cleanest code. (but will probably not ever be Mbytes per second)
diana_coman: ave1, aha, byte by byte was what I ended up doing at testing stage just to see it really working; hopefully I'll still get it working properly with To_C as such and then I can still avoid the C.Strings, stick with the procs To_Ada and To_C; it's not going to be pretty but at least the mess is as small as I can see a way to do it now
diana_coman: ave1 have you ever passed a char * from c to ada in such a way that ada actually sees the correct length for it? there is something I don't quite understand there as To_C seems to use Target'Length so the length should be set
mircea_popescu: caaddr Valfor next i see your name in any other context than "here is the useful i did" comes the banning.
mircea_popescu: ave1 you should ; also read through the eucrypt thing, ima (for instance) need someone to package it into a cmd line gpg replacement as soon as next wek.
asciilifeform: ada folx: re making ada strings out of the c variety : strlen(char *) is a potentially lethal op ( suppose the nullterminator is missing ) so it will never be called implicitly by ada. you gotta either call strlen deliberately on c side, and then form ( can be on stack , declare ... Foo : String(1 .. Length) ... , say, a la ) a proper ada string and copy the cstring into it.
asciilifeform: ... or use the secondary-stack-using standard mechanism for this ( or ave1's replacement, potentially ) .
asciilifeform: in either case you gotta pick a max length for the thing, and copy ~up to~ that many bytes. but this is prolly obvious.
mircea_popescu: i beleive in using the mess maker to clean up the messes it made.
mircea_popescu: ave1 i can't imagine what exactly you could use mbytes / second in an irc bot. i don't think my irc interface even seens kb/s speeds.
ben_vulpes: "the main feature of cryptocurrencies is their anonymity. i don't think this is a good thing" -- bill gates
ben_vulpes: offensively stupid remark.
ben_vulpes: holy crap monero still undebunked in mainstream usg press
ben_vulpes: offensively stupid country?
ben_vulpes: and in other offensively stupid crap: "The private key, or PIN is what gives your bitcoin its value...Digital platforms like Coinbase don't give users a bitcoin PIN" holy crap the word salad
ben_vulpes: that's enough i'm going to stop slamming my dick in the drawer now
mircea_popescu: you know, i have some barely literate opinions from other niggers here for you, if you must read ?
mircea_popescu: Hello. vewer am here to share my
mircea_popescu: testimony on how I finally join the
mircea_popescu: Illuminati hood and became rich , i am marry by name 45 years old from palm coast florida usa, I tried all
mircea_popescu: my possible best to become a member of
mircea_popescu: the hood but I was scam several times ,
mircea_popescu: before I finally come across a testimony on
mircea_popescu: net so I contacted the agent , I was so
mircea_popescu: afraid that he will ask me for lot of money
mircea_popescu: before I can join the hood but to my
mircea_popescu: greatest surprise he only ask me to obtain
mircea_popescu: the pot of riches which I did and today, am
mircea_popescu: so happy to say to the world that am one
mircea_popescu: of the richest by having the sum of $ 360
mircea_popescu: millions dollars in my personal account as a
mircea_popescu: new member in Africa and am also known
mircea_popescu: all over the world with the business given
mircea_popescu: to me by the Illuminati and also have
mircea_popescu: power to do that which I want
mircea_popescu: ^ there, it's even wordwrapped for greater conveniences. always the tell-tale sign of an lively, active intelligence, this wordwrap business.
ben_vulpes: now that you mention it, "South Africa Votes to Seize White-Owned Land Without Compensation"
hanbot: there's only one PIN in opinions, sounds dangerous.
mircea_popescu: it's been on qntra.
ben_vulpes: walkin mah feeds in teh wronggg order.
mircea_popescu: evidently.
mircea_popescu: anyway, getting back to the point of bill gates / whatever pantsuit commentators on the fringes of the republic and old man jamemary of / whatever nigger commentators ~ALSO!!!!~ very much exactly and entirely identically in each and every way also! on the fringes of the republic : there's really no difference.
mircea_popescu: bill gates, like any other "oligarch", was made in ye olde socialist manner of "the great inca decrees so-and-so is to fill the role of great rich businessman". it is entirely a paper-only affair of the substance, and of the nature, AND EVEN OF THE FORM! of "joining the hood", carefully not to be scam, and rich through having numbers in bank account etc.
mircea_popescu: means "death as good news". because, to this sort of people, it actually is, the best of news. they had no business being here in the first place, life on earth was naught but overburden and the anxiety incumbent from overburdening.
mircea_popescu: there's exactly no difference between that misfortunate ; or the article's ilie alexandru, or bill gates, or the quoted nigerian, or his exact identical twin obama, or the whole rest of them.

trinque: curious thing, looks like he thought he was connected to something
trinque: I'll keep an eye out.
mircea_popescu: didn't voice me on the first pass, either.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: deffect -> defect ( ? or is this deliberate )
ben_vulpes: asciilifeform: any closer to producing an ETA for the FG shipment?
asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: thursday 1700 (new york time)
asciilifeform: going ~out~, that is. ( they will go '2 day fedex' unless ben_vulpes absolutely must have faster )
ben_vulpes: thanks asciilifeform
ben_vulpes: so likely monday then, or does the 2day include weekends
asciilifeform: afaik it does not include weekend
ben_vulpes: aight then
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes left you a pile of q
ben_vulpes: ty mircea_popescu
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes also dun figure in there either way... was it ever brought before the board ?
a111: Logged on 2018-02-18 19:22 mircea_popescu: is there any interest in this line with current management ? get a storage unit somewhere in uruguay, pile up all the pogos and other non-replenishables ?
mircea_popescu: (divorced from the ~pogos itself~ question, which i gather dun really want)
ben_vulpes: thanks for reminding me about that; i'll answer in a bit along with your q's on the blog a little later, attention currently demanded elsewhere
mircea_popescu: no big rush.
trinque: there appear to be freenode shenanigans today
