douchebag: mircea_popescu: I'm talking to a girl right now
douchebag: She might be interested
douchebag: tryna sweet talk her right now
hanbot: phf et al: attempted to press latest vtools to the keccak head. v (mod6's) reports vtools_vpatch_newline not in flow, neither its antecedent vtools_fixes_static_tohex, despite both patches and (verified good) sigs present (they neither show up via flow command). v will press to vtools_vpatch.vpatch, but no further. see http://p.bvulpes.com/pastes/oNRhE/?raw=true .
hanbot: not sure if this has something to do with the note in phf's accompanying release post re btcbase presser not working quite right....
mod6: i'll take a look
mircea_popescu: hanbot manifest is broken
mircea_popescu: o no nm, i had them in reverse order.
mircea_popescu: it's actually 6144 -> 7ebf ; 7ebf -> 154d
mircea_popescu: hanbot that is so fucking weird ; v.pl literally greps for the name in order to spit out that error, and the name's right there.
mod6: well, 'vtools_fixes_static_tohex.vpatch' is not found in her flow.
mod6: which is where the error comes from. im getting all of his patches & sigs and will see wtf
mircea_popescu: but it's in the ls.
mod6: yeah, but v.pl isn't picking it up, for some reason; i'll get to the bottom of why.
mod6: hanbot: can you tell us what version of v.pl you are using?
hanbot: 99994 K
mod6: ok, update to 99993 K plz. not sure it'll solve ~this~ problem yet.
mod6 is just digging in
hanbot: mod6 same results with 99993
mod6: yup, i see the same.
mod6: and i've found the issue.
mod6: stand by
mod6: Before I paste this, lemme describe what I'm doing here: 1) I'm starting fresh, grabbing all the vpatches and sigs referenced in the most recent blog post by phf at http://barksinthewind.com/2018/vtools-keccak-regrind/
mod6: 2) Once I have all the files, I put them in the proper place. Then grab the latest V (99993) and verify that it's correct.
mod6: 3) Check the flow, see that vtools_fixes_static_tohex.vpatch is not in the flow, and check to ensure that the seal verifies, and it dows
mod6: 4) Check the press paths -- there are ~two~ (phf said this was experimental previously)
mod6: 5) Check the origins of the antecedent hashes in 'vtools_fixes_static_tohex.vpatch' to see if we're missing one.
mod6: 6) We're not missing an antecedent vpatch; however, '98ba7212fafa4a61f6d6096f1a2953a67a70fcf185965ed7199a223f6897c9b9f2996d391a3f363282236889413973d0beada0e36d57068549bea672fd110d8d' matches two antecedents
mod6: ^ my testing
mod6: one will notice that these antecedent origins are from two separate press-paths.
mod6: I'm not sure how to reconsile this. If you have a different v tool that will help you work around this, by all means.
mircea_popescu: mod6 how the heck can both sha fixes and fixes newline have the same hash
mircea_popescu: oh, they don't, they just have the same antecedent. why is this a problem ?
mircea_popescu: 99994 and 99993 correctly press past this split, you're aware.
mod6: 'vdiff_sha_fixes_newline_gcc.vpatch' and 'vdiff_fixes_newline_gcc.vpatch' indeed have the same output hash.
mod6: <+mircea_popescu> oh, they don't, they just have the same antecedent. why is this a problem ? << im not sure at this point. could be an edge case im not catching, or could be buried in old rules built into my v.
mircea_popescu: hang on wtf.
mod6: and a good question, is this a problem for 'theory of v' ?
mod6: i'd have to fully debug the problem here, im only showing the symptoms here.
mircea_popescu: phf dude you did the conflict wth is this!
mircea_popescu: mod6 well i dun see how we can have collisions and live. i can't even understand how the fuck this was possible, two patches with DIFFERENT antecedents hash-colliding ?!
mircea_popescu: i mean, vdiff_sha_fixes_newline_gcc.vpatch sorts off vtools_vdiff_sha, whereas vdiff_fixes_newline_gcc.vpatch sorts right off genesis.
mod6: <+mircea_popescu> omf they do : http://p.bvulpes.com/pastes/MOixj/?raw=true << here I think you inadvertantly curled & diffed the same files.
mod6: this is different than what i'm saying. the two distinct vpatches, 'vdiff_sha_fixes_newline_gcc.vpatch' and 'vdiff_fixes_newline_gcc.vpatch', contain the same output, '98ba7212fafa4a61f6d6096f1a2953a67a70fcf185965ed7199a223f6897c9b9f2996d391a3f363282236889413973d0beada0e36d57068549bea672fd110d8d'
mod6: oh wait.
mod6: there is more going on here.
mod6: 'vtools_fixes_static_tohex.vpatch' is not the only one to be dropped out, so is 'vdiff_sha_static.vpatch'; i didn't notice on the first pass.
mircea_popescu: oh damn i did do the same file. buffer failure.
phf: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-04-09#1794461 << that was already the case in the previous patchset
a111: Logged on 2018-04-09 05:23 mod6: this is different than what i'm saying. the two distinct vpatches, 'vdiff_sha_fixes_newline_gcc.vpatch' and 'vdiff_fixes_newline_gcc.vpatch', contain the same output, '98ba7212fafa4a61f6d6096f1a2953a67a70fcf185965ed7199a223f6897c9b9f2996d391a3f363282236889413973d0beada0e36d57068549bea672fd110d8d'
mircea_popescu is thoroughly confused through the working of his own ineptitude, will need a moment to extract self.
mod6: phf: i thought last time we encountered a problem like this we dropped out a vpatch, then it was fine.
mod6: but this time, i dunno wtf is going on here. it's a mess.
mod6: here's where two vpatches have the same outputs for 'xalloc.h'
douchebag: Hey is it cool if I invite a friend in here, he's a pretty good chatter and he's a technical dude
mod6: then both vdiff_sha_static.vpatch and vtools_fixes_static_tohex.vpatch try to use the same input.
phf: mod6: this might've been encountered before, but i'm talking about the vtools patchset that was there before regrind
douchebag: He'll join in a moment
mircea_popescu: mod6 no, listen, i don't see what the problem you see is. so a number of different patches, which are themselves distinct, nevertheless depend on the same version of a file (here, xaloc). this isn't, nor can be a problem ; and was not a prtoblem before, either.
mod6: oh, im specifically talking about the patch set from your latest post.
mod6: umm. well...
mircea_popescu: as long as the patches don't collide, ie, have the same hash ; and as long as they're properly chained and signed they should press.
mod6: this violates rules that we've previously put in place then.
mircea_popescu: i still don't know why they don't ; but as far as i can see there isn't an actual problem with his patches or seals.
mircea_popescu: mod6 which rules ?
mod6: or it's a side effect of some coding
mod6: i dunno. ugh.
mod6: this is why i don't want to write this thing any more.
mod6: so tired of fucking with v.
mod6: can't even get anything else done, all i do is V. audit peoples shit.
mircea_popescu: mod6 but specifically as to the point, can you see why v.pl spits out that error message there ? am i right in reading the script as "if the file is not found by name" ?
mod6: etc etc etc.
mod6: this is getting SUPER old.
mircea_popescu: well the hope is that eventually we iron out all the edges...
mod6: i don't think im the right person for this.
mod6: someone else now needs to step up and write a V.
mod6: im done with this thing.
mircea_popescu: death("HEAD: $press not found in flow\n") if !grep /^$press$/, @flow << this specifically. how can it fail if it lists the item in flow ?
mod6: it isn't in the flow. that's the problem.
mod6: these vpatches are thrown out as they fail a previous check.
mircea_popescu: oh oh i see!
mod6: I added a debugging line:
mod6: see, "removed"
mod6: this was removed in the "ante_check"
mod6: *these were removed in the "ante_check" subroutine
mircea_popescu: mod6 ok here's what i don't understand : for some reason the "flow" goes from vtools_vpatch, which is in the keccak line, to vdiff_sha_fixes, which is in the other line (sha line).
mircea_popescu: this makes no sense. basically it goes 5 steps down the keccak tree and then jumps to step 1 and 2 on the sha tree.
mod6: well, i dunno.
mod6: i need to call it a night.
mircea_popescu: sleep tight. best case, we figure it out by morn.
phf: i can only say that i think that btcbase presser is doing the same thing, with the "5 steps down keccak and 2 steps down sha", but the grapher doesn't. i think grapher uses more Graph Theory, but i neither remember what the difference is, nor can i debug it now (was about to go to sleep myself)
mircea_popescu: phf it's incomprehensible to me as the manifest.txt varies wildly.
mircea_popescu: anyway, it's not an emergency, sleep tight also we see tomorro
mircea_popescu: douchebag sure.
phf: here's a potentially useful picture for those who want to meditate on the antecedent graph, http://btcbase.org/data/vtools/graph-with-hunks.svg it shows individual hunk linkages though unlabeled

ckang: to an outsider it is a pretty extreme idea, but i dig it
mircea_popescu: phf oh! it tries to press vdiff_sha / etc because they're actually a dependency for tohex ?! why did you write it this way ?
mircea_popescu: vtools_fixes_static_tohex shouldn't depend on anything from vdiff_sha_fixes_newline_gcc.
mircea_popescu: that's the fucking problem! the vtools_fixes_static_tohex uses xalloc.h 98BA when it should instead use its own line (earlier) version of C89B.

phf: antecedent graph != requirement graph
mod6: I have no fucking idea what is going on. alf - that's really weird. im using the following patches/seals, and I'm getting this: http://p.bvulpes.com/pastes/RrM1h/?raw=true
mod6: I don't have time to debug this shit now. but at some point I'll have to actually look at this project and try to figure out what the graph is ~supposed~ to look like and why my V chokes on it.
mod6: Someone needs to write and maintain a proper V for the republic.
mod6: It sucks up way to much of my time.
asciilifeform: mod6: it probably does not help that one has to hand-click 22 times to download this set. possibly you missed one?
mod6: I'm hoping that phf will look at my latest link and audit that for me. I've pulled everything from : http://barksinthewind.com/2018/vtools-keccak-regrind/
mod6: I could have missed one, indeed.
phf: mod6: all are there
mod6: yeah, im not sure wtf.
asciilifeform: hmm looks like it
mod6: there is a reason that those two vpatches are being thrown out.
mod6: i need to do a deep debugging session to figure out the root cause.
mod6: no time now.
mircea_popescu: omg i just pointed out the cause : he links the wrong version of xalloc
phf: mircea_popescu: did you see my response
a111: Logged on 2018-04-09 13:59 phf: antecedent graph != requirement graph
phf: the one before that
mod6: I suspect that is the problem with the rules.
mircea_popescu: phf i looked at the patch itself.
mod6: Before we said "all antecedents must be present for a descendant to be in the flow".
mircea_popescu: lemme reload all this pile of stuff here, i closed it all last night.
mod6: So made routines that do just that. There almost certainly is not a built in case where two antecedents have the same output hashes and can use a single in that csae.
mod6: If you understand my meaning. I.e. I would need to add an exception to the rule for that.
mod6: asciilifeform: out of curiosity, what version of my V are you using?
mircea_popescu: well now i can't fucking reproduce it at all.
BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> textile engineering !? << You know... Applied HAIR THEORY!
mircea_popescu: phf what is the vdiff_sha_fixes_newline_gcc link to vtools_fixes_static_tohex ? as now apparently the two patches are entirely disjunct, did you update or something ?
phf: mircea_popescu: that's one of the 98BA's
phf: http://btcbase.org/hash/98BA7212FAFA4A61F6D6096F1A2953A67A70FCF185965ED7199A223F6897C9B9F2996D391A3F363282236889413973D0BEADA0E36D57068549BEA672FD110D8D you can see here who produces it and who consumes it
mircea_popescu: a right. hanbot do me a favour : download ~only~ those patches which are in the leftmost trunk seen on phf's viewer (so exclude vtools_vdiff_sha, and its dependents) and try to flow again ?
mircea_popescu: mod6 i suspect we ran into a novel situation : if there's ambiguous file usage in multi-head bundles, v panics.
mircea_popescu: (which is not even wrong, as the serial application of patches from different branches can result in a messed up codebase ; but it could be more verbose about what happened)
mod6: yeah, totally.
mod6: alf already instructed me a number of months ago to be more verbose about failures. I didn't get that done as much on the last release as I was trying to limit the scope to the last change for the press-paths.
mod6: So indeed, better failure messages are needed. And if we're going to allow this type of strange project structures, that'll have to get built into the rules.
mircea_popescu: it's not directly clear just ~how~ it could be more verbose here, seeing how it doesn't magically know all the "meanings" we associate to the patches themselves.
hanbot: mircea_popescu: on it
mod6: mircea_popescu: well, for instance, it would be nice if I'd have put a statement in the release version that yells when it throws a vpatch out for rule breakage.
mircea_popescu: wouldn't have gained us anything here, it'd just have pointed to vtools_fixes_static_tohex, but we pretty much knew that one is where it dies anyway.
mod6: in this case, it throws out: vdiff_sha_static.vpatch and vtools_fixes_static_tohex.vpatch
mod6: yeah, this is true too.
mod6: mircea_popescu: i can try the leftmost trunck on phf's viewer, but not right this minute. maybe in a few hours. i'm pinned down in the mud. gotta kill the guy in the pillbox first.
mircea_popescu: no, what it should do is yell "alternate paths to press $vtools_fixes_static_tohex.vpatch requirement $x.alloc : $vtools+patch and $vdiff_sha_fixes_newline_gcc."
a111: Logged on 2018-04-09 14:27 mod6: asciilifeform: out of curiosity, what version of my V are you using?
mod6: asciilifeform: ahhhh interesting, thanks for reporting.
mod6: mircea_popescu: solid plan. i can add something like that perhaps when alternate paths are detected.
mircea_popescu: which is a useful warning, because in principle if $1 and $2 could both delivered wanted $file, but the author intended for $1 to be used, $2 might produce different $otherfile than author needed, and then you can't press because your hashes no longer match downstream"
mircea_popescu: hanbot you're missing one.
hanbot: pff sorry.
hanbot: right, correct patchset on the left then presses + flows to vtools_vpatch_newline
phf: fwiw there's no ambiguity in the patchset, the dependency graph _is constrained_. but you can't make that constraint rule based, you can e.g. discover that constraint by walking the graph while keeping the track of the checksums of the press (i suspect there's a smarter graph theoretical way of doing it, but a "press walk" is the easiest).
phf: obviously that works because btcbase produces the correct dependency graph
mircea_popescu: yeah. so on one hand indeed the problem was as suspected ; but on the other hand phf is correct and yes the graph IS constrained.
mircea_popescu: phf i guess next on your plate is make a prototype proper grapher for all time ? then mod6 can put that in v and avoid further such wtfs.
mircea_popescu: the easiest press walk may in principle become very VERY expensive on large enough projects (in terms of the bitcoin blockchain large, 6 digit patches with 1-3 digit files included each it'd be a true unassailable nightmare). but then again it also bakes in some incentive to NOT DO THAT.
phf: i suppose that's one way to release btcbase source: slowly rewrite it all in ada
mircea_popescu: know a better one ?
mircea_popescu: need-driven rewrite, best engineering known to man. it's certainly how i produce trilema.

mircea_popescu: you can't paper over brainrot.
asciilifeform: quite the opposite, in fact
mircea_popescu: if dentists were programmers they wouldn't have any need for drills, just cement over cavities and then cement over that.
asciilifeform: ^ this is what american dentists do much of the time
mircea_popescu: purple screen of tooth pain
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform not just usian disease anymore. i had some work done recently, very pretty girl, quite competent (sadly, being a good dentist requires the steady hand only a properly developed brain can produce. retards can't ever be sharpshooters, dentists, surgeons etc because dubious genetics -> dubios fenotype -> too ungaitly assymetric to perform)
mircea_popescu: anyway, and she wanted to put me under! and i was naw, go ahead. took some convincing, and by the time she was halfway through she was sweating profusely and had the shakes. "but doesn't it hurt ?!?!"
mircea_popescu: "well... apparently it hurts you ? i've seen women go through gangbangs with less extrapyramidal effects"

asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: i can procure, if you say which; but gotta have concrete plan .
ben_vulpes: asciilifeform: please to spec it out, yr the hardware guy. would this get attached to one of the rockchips?

asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: this was a q for ben_vulpes , who has seen what's in the rack and knows if any empty holes
phf: (but also this is a thin pipe for 2-9gb customary torrent sizes, i know mircea_popescu is partial to 750mb prints)
a111: Logged on 2018-04-09 16:03 mircea_popescu: lobbes ^
mircea_popescu: phf do you genuinely see a problem with cd-size movies ?
mircea_popescu: because i also intend to re-encode everything.
mircea_popescu: lobbes you added gopher to your hopper ?! what did grace say ?
ben_vulpes: asciilifeform: all of the machines in the rack are being used; i was asking if one of the rockchips can handle this kind of duty.
phf: mircea_popescu: well, sometimes quality does suck, when you do e.g. a wall projection. those 9gb prints are usually done by obsessive people. but main reason is that i'm pulling from slav sources, where 800mb version is slav audio track only. "original audio track" is a bonus on those "archival" prints
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes mechanical poor fit for rockchip.
asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: rockchip can drive a single usb3 disk, with appropriate cable.
mircea_popescu: phf i can't fucking STAND dubs.
mircea_popescu: kinda why i have 0 interest in teh ruworld torrents, nfi who told these folks it's ok to hire some tolomak to do say richard burton. wtf.
ben_vulpes: asciilifeform: i don't think we have a machine that is even free for this purpose; and so don't understand why we'd ship hdds down without a machine to put 'em in, although i could be being thick and not seeing something
asciilifeform: btw i oughta say a word re how rockchiptron reproduces. i wrote a bit of script, ./breed_boot.sh /dev/sd_whatever_cardreader_with_card_in_it -- produces copy of the boot card ; ./breed_root.sh /dev/large_enuff_disk copies the root partition contents onto a new part on said disk
phf: well, i download the 9gb versions, and have a script that keeps only one specific audio track. the whole thing is a semi manual process though, since i have to select the right track by ear, etc.
asciilifeform: and thus the box can breed copies of self
phf: i don't at present recode them because space is cheap
phf: but yeah dub world is funny. heated debates over whether translation by say borodinsky or kozlov are better
mircea_popescu: 481 * 9 = 4329, ie more than the hd i bought. not cheap.
mircea_popescu: phf the notion that you'll have a local capable of the delivery of any arbitrary actor... really ? kozlov gonna sound like marylin ? slim ? etcetera ?
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: traditional ru dub is either 1 voice, or ('classy!') 2, male/female
asciilifeform: so, even worse.
mircea_popescu: no, i know. terrible orcism.
mircea_popescu: what, russkis can't read subtitles like sane fucking people ?
asciilifeform: i suspect there's su-era nostalgia keeping the thing alive. sorta how in jp old farts are ~100% of whale meat market, because mcarthur fed it to'em back in the day
asciilifeform: su underground film translators simply had no access to subbing gear
mircea_popescu: i guess. it's not even that good!
asciilifeform: aha, is the point
mircea_popescu: phf what are you using btw ? i'm thinking deluge, apparently has a web interface can just get the girlies set up with.
phf: aria2, i think it has a web interface even, but the whole thing is entirely automatic. cron to hoover up torrents from ~/Downloads, ssh them into a box folder, sleep based script picks it up on other end, feeds it to aria, when finished downloading writes it to an rss and also to a directory that's expose through apache
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform incidentally, here's an idea : think sokoban, but extended so that 1. there's enemies, which can kill you, and 2. you can actually shoot projectiles at them. take advantage of diagonal/straight piercing/exploding and of course destroyable/nondestroyable movable/non movable environment.
mircea_popescu: phf i intend to use the box as the center.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: 'supaplex', msdos
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform nah, there's no firing.
mircea_popescu: but the bonus gravity is a good idea.
mircea_popescu: this'd be like... the definitive platformer.
mircea_popescu: also, sokoban is an achieve-structure game ; supaplex more of a reach-x
phf: deluge looks workable, but i've never used it. i used https://transmissionbt.com/ but not their web interface
mircea_popescu: phf the spec here is "have a library of good films accessible to friends" rather than "i want to watch something between blowjobs"
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform "move that crate to the left, but NOT YET or else that weird plant shoots you as it's exactly diagonal"
mircea_popescu: PLUS you get for the first time now the best thing ever : your guy can a) learn (say, spells) and b) equip, items. because there's meaningful effects to have.
mircea_popescu: ima fucking spec this.
trinque: rtorrent's pretty good for "run as service"
ben_vulpes: the transmission web interface is fine

ben_vulpes: i'm particularly fond of the scawwy stowies about how the funsies will just sit in your spinal fluid forever
cassidy3: Even getting safer now with on site testing
cassidy3: Although thats a touchy subject many places.
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes the who ?
ben_vulpes: who tests the testers
cassidy3: Science I suppose :)
ben_vulpes: mircea_popescu: scary stories for spooking noobs
mircea_popescu: cassidy3 does burning man count as a rave iyo ?
cassidy3: Places could be considered that yeah, but I would equate it more to a festival with art installations.
mircea_popescu: o, yeah, do you know any good drawers ?
cassidy3: Its fun, but by the end you are ready to get far away and into a shower.
cassidy3: tattoo artist?
a111: Logged on 2018-03-29 05:42 mircea_popescu: i'm toying with the idea of sponsoring a comic. you ever seen oglaf ?
cassidy3: Oh hmm, I know a few people that do tattoo work but I am not sure how that translates, linework is similar maybe
mircea_popescu: possibly similar; dunno.
cassidy3: What did you have in mind? My best GF does sketches all the time for tattoos I can see what she comes up with.
mircea_popescu: well, have her drop by
cassidy3: Certainly, she may be interested in the picture stuff as well, I am going to dinner tonight with her I will see if shes interested 😃
ckanggirl: h mircea_popescu

ckanggirl: discord is similar to this irccloud
mircea_popescu: well... when are you coming to costa rica ?
ckanggirl: but with more stuff, like pictures and audio
ckanggirl: when are you inviting me? :)
mircea_popescu: umm... say next week ?
ckanggirl: lol move fast, unfortunately I let my passport lapse, would need to get it renewed.
mircea_popescu: so get it renewed. you never know when you need it.
ckanggirl: but def. something i would consider
ckanggirl: could I bring a another girl friend?
mircea_popescu: haha. well, depends who, neh ?
ckanggirl: traveling alone makes me very anxious
mircea_popescu: you ever lived in a bdsm environment before ?
ckanggirl: lived in no lol, but ive seen some shows on bsdm relationships
ckanggirl: never had a boy willing to do that sort of stuff
ckanggirl: not that im opposed, its just never come up
mircea_popescu: contrary to unexamined belief, male doms are rare enough.
ckanggirl: yea lol, all the shows the men have wanted to be the submissive it seems
ckanggirl: reverse roles compared to 'real world' i suppose
mircea_popescu: so what do you do, other than going to bdsm shows ?
ckanggirl: haha, tv shows lol
mircea_popescu: o fuck me! i accidentally paid... ckang. nuts.
ckanggirl: but I work with my mother's law firm
mircea_popescu: !!pay ckanggirl 0.02
ckanggirl: im working on a paralegal
mircea_popescu: that's a pretty sweet setup huh.
ckanggirl: i am sorta OCD about paperwork and organization
mircea_popescu: aren't you worried mom reads trilema ?
ckanggirl: so its an outlet
mircea_popescu: !!rate ckanggirl 1 paralegal
ckanggirl: i would be more embarrassed if she knew what this irccloud was tbh
ckanggirl: this is the first time ive ever heard of it
ckanggirl: what do you do mr mircea_popescu ?
mircea_popescu: anyway, i rated you, so now you can voice yourself ; say !!up to deedbot in a pm.
mircea_popescu: and stick around, this collection of drunks gets in legal trouble ALLLL the time.
ckanggirl: besides collect boobs ;p
mircea_popescu: ckanggirl i'm a bitcoin billionaire / vap.
ckanggirl: oh wow, ive heard about some very eclectic types like that, i must say im envious they can pursue what they enjoy
mircea_popescu: ckanggirl here : http://trilema.com/2017/galati-yachting/ ; buncha moar travelpics in that category.
ckanggirl: but as they say, hindsight is always 20/20
mircea_popescu: yo ckang , voice yourself baby.
ckanggirl: wish i had 20/20 foresight haha
mircea_popescu: ckanggirl i find your fore...sight perfectly acceptable.
ckanggirl: he stepped out for a bit to get some dinner i think
mircea_popescu: !!up cassidy3
mircea_popescu: ckang what's ecclectic mean, anyway ?
ckanggirl: omg, i love the turtles!
ckanggirl: so cute
ckanggirl: eclectic as in, taste that doesnt necessarily fall in line with the rest of society
mircea_popescu: i thought that was simply having any taste whatsoever.
ckanggirl: subjective ;)
mircea_popescu: anyway, eclectic is an english calc of the greek word for "choosing". it's a selection of the best of everything.
ckanggirl: is that you at the top of the page? love beards
mircea_popescu: yeah, that's me. changes every day though.
ckanggirl: most boys ive gone out with, couldn't get close to being able to grow such a thing
mircea_popescu: somehow i've been blessed with an epic beard.
mircea_popescu: must be teh wisdom.
ckanggirl: one tried and it just looked like his face was constantly dirty lol, i made him shave it
mircea_popescu: yeah, not a good look, the boyish beard.
ckanggirl: i cant stop looking at the little turtles
mircea_popescu: you know i actually had them in my hands! they're the cutest thing, sorta lift head to see where water is, then lower it again and push push push. evidently hard work.
mircea_popescu: anyway, it's one of those few things where nothing beats being there.
mircea_popescu: ckanggirl try it now, say !!up to deedbot
mircea_popescu: hey check you out!
mircea_popescu: are you like smart or something ?
ckanggirl: had to ask douchebag for help ;p
ckanggirl: I wouldnt have figured that out
mircea_popescu: amusingly, a guy named douchebag is like, one of the most noob-helping guys around! misleading name!
ckanggirl: yea douchebag is around some of the same places, seems like a good guy
ckanggirl: with as big as the internet is, funny how we run across the same people so much
mircea_popescu: it's not really that big.
ckanggirl: i suppose areas of interest kind of dictate the little 'cliques'
mircea_popescu: i thought he was only interested in breaking shit up. and i guess nowadays a newfound interest in tits.
ckanggirl: ive never heard of such a thing
mircea_popescu: which ?
ckanggirl: bitcoin billionaires, paying for #s written on boobs lol
mircea_popescu: years ago some guy made 10 bitcoin for shoving a sharpie up his butt
ckanggirl: i wouldnt have believed it until douchebag vouched
ckanggirl: lol, ive had guys do that free hah
ckanggirl: silly boys
douchebag: like I always said, "big ass titties"
mircea_popescu: it was all an elaborate in-joke, there was this pantsuit collective (something awful) calling it "buttcoin"
mircea_popescu: so... well...
ckanggirl: i bet that 'yhbt' felt good in the end
mircea_popescu: depends for whom lol.
mircea_popescu: afaik they're still butthurt over the whole thing.
ckanggirl: he may have enjoyed it a little too
mircea_popescu: i'm sure.
douchebag: must have been an awfully big sharpie if they're still butthurt
ckanggirl: i remember the whole butt sharpie phase
ckanggirl: now i guess kids are back to snorting condoms
ckanggirl: full circle, as they say
mircea_popescu: jesus christ, it's been five years already.
ckanggirl: did they ever figure out the tide pod thing?
ckanggirl: i still dont understand how that started
mircea_popescu: i dunno honestly, i've not been keeping that close a track.
ckanggirl: yea it just fell out of the news one day, not heard about it since
mircea_popescu: !#s jenkem
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: see also^ uncleal's AFRICA2.AMS
mod6: Well, I've implemented a better check there in the 'ante_check' subroutine. And I was gonna mess with it a bit more, but when I went to press the shorter of the two paths (visible at http://btcbase.org/patches?patchset=vtools ), I ran into a press problem.
mod6: Then I went ahead and tried to manually patch these files together, first 'vtools_genesis.vpatch', then 'vtools_vdiff_sha.vpatch', then 'vdiff_sha_fixes_newline_gcc', and this is what I'm seeing:
mod6: Then I went ahead and tried to manually patch these files together, first 'vtools_genesis.vpatch', then 'vtools_vdiff_sha.vpatch', then 'vdiff_sha_fixes_newline_gcc', and this is what I'm seeing:
mircea_popescu: lol you seeing oops ?
mod6: heheh, sorry for the double post. This tho ^
mircea_popescu: not directly evident why this is problematic ?
mircea_popescu: ah manifest fails
mod6: no! not even using vtronics at all. just a good ole fashion by hand patch application.
mod6: i believe that I am patching in the correct order. not only validated by the link to btcbase.org/patches above, but also the same press path is given from my v.
mod6: phf: what am I missing here?
mod6: anyway, my apologies for the interruption. please continue.
mircea_popescu is slightly disappointed nobody asked what "vap" stands for.
ben_vulpes: what, and interrupt teh fun and games?
douchebag: what does vap stand for
douchebag: i was actually wondering
douchebag: but didn't want to interrupt
mircea_popescu: very annoying person. DUH
ckanggirl: mircea_popescu: i have to run out for a bit, thanks for the chat and ill see whats involved in getting my passport renewed if you are serious :O
ckanggirl: bye yall!
phf: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-04-09#1795123 << you can't press vdiff_fixes_newline_gcc on top of vtools_vdiff_sha, because there's a bunch of patches in between. manifest is getting rejected, because manifest specifically enforces order. if you try pressing them in order, i.e. the left column from genesis http://btcbase.org/patches?patchset=vtools it will work
asciilifeform confesses to not yet grasping the mechanics of this
asciilifeform: how was phf's v9995-choking patch set , created ?
phf: by diffing two folders together, there's no magic there
asciilifeform: then why does mod6's vtron barf
phf: is that a rhetorical question?
asciilifeform: trying to eat that log presently
mod6: woah. wait.
mod6: i've put in a little fix for my 'check_ante' subroutine, but by what you're saying, this isn't correct then either (for press-path):
mod6: ok here's the graph I generated: http://www.mod6.net/2018/April/10/vtools_graph.html
mod6: this is a megapuzzler.
phf: mod6: the graph is correct. you have a patch chain A B C D E, you're trying to apply A B E. E is going to fail because you didn't apply C D
mod6: what i'm trying to get at is, if I follow the patch order in here (the first pp command), it is incorrect, for some reason: http://p.bvulpes.com/pastes/wIaed/?raw=true
mod6: if I press either path, i blow up on the manifest.
mod6 scratches head
spyked: mircea_popescu, crap, apologies for the mess on trilema, I have no idea why it gets cut off. I'll try to repost the comment tomorrow
phf: mod6: the graph on btcbase vtools is the only way it can possibly press. either the left branch or the right branch. changing the order, or introducing the patches from left into right, or right into left is going to break manifest.
mod6: phf: i patched by hand in the order shown on the right path of your graph: http://p.bvulpes.com/pastes/3ujyM/?raw=true
phf: mod6: are you trying to press the left hand or the right hand?
mod6: right hand
mod6: vtools_genesis.vpatch -> vtools_vdiff_sha.vpatch -> vdiff_fixes_newline_gcc.vpatch
phf: then instead of vdiff_fixes_newline_gcc you should be applying vdiff_sha_fixes_newline_gcc
mod6: err crap
mod6: ok the damn file names are so similar im getting confused.
mod6: ok, so in that case: vtools_genesis.vpatch -> vtools_vdiff_sha.vpatch -> vdiff_sha_fixes_newline_gcc
mod6: lemme do that quick.
mod6: http://p.bvulpes.com/pastes/AVFdI/?raw=true << ok that works. but my vtron chokes on this patch set -- mis-orders the press path, for some reason I still don't understand yet.

ckang: ohh the api, yea I couldnt quite figure out what it does outright
mircea_popescu: anyway, to answer your question : i wanted to ask you to make a "federated social media" server to pump out the #trilema log anyway. if you're making it you can consider the 2 bitcents an advance.
ckang: ah yea the pump.io, didnt know it by the other name
mircea_popescu: and sure, more girls welcome.
mircea_popescu: douchebag i thought this guy's more low level networking than you are!

ckang: mircea_popescu: ah thought that was the case, has it been voided or do I need to do anything on my end?
mircea_popescu: sarah443 you here to show us your tits then ?
mircea_popescu: ckang has what been voided ?
sarah443: Yes sir !
mircea_popescu: sarah443 87a1f8ad
mod6: phf: ahh, ok now im looking at your graph, my graph, and my press path. your right path does ~NOT~ contain 'vdiff_fixes_newline_gcc.vpatch'. My press path does.
mod6: I believe what might be happening here is that my traversal follows all edges, where as yours does something different perhaps
mircea_popescu: phf any chance logotron might replace unicode barf with the "unicode name" ?
mod6: my vtron pulls in 'vdiff_fixes_newline_gcc.vpatch' because it is an antecedent of 'vdiff_sha_static.vpatch' : http://www.mod6.net/2018/April/10/vtools_graph.html
mircea_popescu: mod6 i thought you didn't want to fuck with this anymore, in which case could just wait for him to finish and publish his grapher. or is it fun ?
mod6: lol, well i don't wanna have to fuck with it. and it's not exactly fun. but i really can't stop either.
mod6: i think i have dane bramage.
mircea_popescu: eh, relax, for all practical purposes we have this in hand, hanbot managed to press her press. it's not an emergency.
mod6: alright, i have a drive to get to the bottom of things. will back off.
mircea_popescu: it's nice and good, if it's pleasurable, or needful. but if it's neither don't drive yourself batty out of sheer masochism.
mod6: no worries. thanks Mr. P.
phf: mircea_popescu: i believe the only way to identify unicode barf is by maintaining or downloading explicit lists. we have legitimate unicode barf, so blanket replacement isn't going to work
mircea_popescu: look at this shit, they have "skin tones" https://emojipedia.org/thumbs-up-sign-type-5/ futa-i dumniezo sa-i futa.
phf: "woman judge: medium-dark skin tone"
mircea_popescu: is this a lizard re female mediocrity ?
phf: https://unicode.org/Public/emoji/11.0/emoji-test.txt all kinds of stuff in there
mircea_popescu: this thing is so fucking stupid...
phf: merperson: dark skin tone, man fairy: light skin tone
mircea_popescu: phf could we maintain explicit lists of permitted unicrap, such as arabic and chinese ? and rape the rest ?
mircea_popescu: half my googling today has been "wtf did she just say to me ?"
phf: i think i'm going to add a replacement engine instead, where various words get replaced with emoji
phf: modern btcbase
mircea_popescu: is phf gonna be "black-and-blue corpse" ?
phf: "right-facing fist: medium-dark skin tone"
mircea_popescu: face-facing fist more like it.
mircea_popescu: who the fuck told these idiots fists have faces anyway.
mircea_popescu: where the fuck is the "queer" modifier anyway. you can say "nigger washingmachine judge" but you can't say "faggot judge" ? what's this, fellow traveller disenfranchisement ?
phf: jeez i don't even know how to work with this soup in sbcl, that woman judge entry translates to, i shit you not, the following sequence of sbcl character names: ("WOMAN" "U1F3FE" "ZERO_WIDTH_JOINER" "SCALES" "VARIATION_SELECTOR-16")
mircea_popescu: uifefe, plain enough. what is the problem you encounter ?
mircea_popescu: don't tell me you're not fluent in swahili.
phf: swahili is out, it's wakandan these days
mircea_popescu: a right.
phf: i like the subgroup animal reptile, "turtle, snake, dragon, t-rex"
mircea_popescu: i can not even.
phf: there's probably enough stuff there to make a very dull roguelike though.
mircea_popescu: and spend the rest of your life dealing with obscure samsung driver errors.
mircea_popescu: !!up sarah443
mircea_popescu: anyway, i thought dragons were palmipedes. hence drake. wtf "reptile".
phf: no see you don't understand taxonomy, it is also green
mircea_popescu: jesus christ you're probably right.
mircea_popescu: phf here's a perhaps useful summa of all this : add the name as a tooltip ? so if i hover it shows it, and if it's useless well, so be it.
mircea_popescu: trilema does this for footnotes by setting the "title" attribute on a tag, but i imagine same can be done with a div ?
phf: hmm, interesting, i could put a title where everything above a ascii is decomposed into names
mircea_popescu: something like that.
phf: not sure how annoying that's going to make hovering though
mircea_popescu: no idea ; also not clear if it's actually worth phf time.
phf: i'm mostly afraid of having to download any more unicode information into my brain
mircea_popescu: i can see it.
mircea_popescu: in any case it was nice having someone to complain to. shit gets infuriating.
phf: the infamous spitoon
sarah443: Sorry I did it on paper and ckang had me redo it and my pen didnt want to write on skin too easily
sarah443: Is that bad? :x
mircea_popescu: !!pay sarah443 0.02
mircea_popescu: so what do you do other than writing on your chest, sarah443 ?
sarah443: Take care of my child currently.
sarah443: Im at a point I need to decided, school or _____
mircea_popescu: is it foon ?
sarah443: heh foon = fun ?
sarah443: Boring would be a better term lol
sarah443: But I love him and he would be in daycare otherwise
mircea_popescu: how old are you, if i may be so bold ?
mircea_popescu: well... school kinda costs serious dough don't it ?
mircea_popescu: i'm 37, i'm not old.
sarah443: It does, but my problem is, I don't want to commit to something since I can't think of anything that I can see myself doing forever.
sarah443: If that makes sense.
mircea_popescu: that's one way of looking at it.
sarah443: Ive just never done something I have been super passionate about.
mircea_popescu: well... why not ?
sarah443: Its always out of necessity.
sarah443: When you have to keep a baby fed and the lights on, it limits things a bit.
mircea_popescu: i guess it must.
ckang: I kind of wanted to do investigative stuff online, like the catch a predator style shows.

sarah443: I would like to do more like offensive sort of research
mircea_popescu: sarah443 how's offensive research go ?
ckang: yea the child predator stuff is kind of odd IMO
ckang: since it seems like they sorta bait people
ckang: ive only seen a few eps though, not sure how they actually do it
sarah443: They actually use bots to troll people into talking with them and chat analysis
mircea_popescu: ckang structure determines content and all that. once you try to go in the "i can't believe" bla bla format, you'll be producing the repsective content.
sarah443: mircea_popescu: I guess a more proactive approach, most stuff is counter active, post mortems
sarah443: If that makes sense?
mircea_popescu: not exactly. got an example ?
sarah443: Well say a site is hacked, the group leaves their tag somewhere.
mircea_popescu: not usually.
sarah443: I want to be in these groups, not as law enforcement.
sarah443: but more so boots on the ground for the industry
sarah443: Whichever it may be, counterfieting stuff has always seemed interesting
sarah443: China is incredible at some of the stuff they do with that
ckang: lol, I got a chinese knife
mircea_popescu: umh. counterfeiting as in, pucci bags and whatnot ?
ckang: it was 1/10th the price of the original
ckang: same materials, box, etc
a111: Logged on 2017-07-13 18:42 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform incidentally : the pineapple hacking device is this chinese blade i bought on a lark. turns out it's the best steel i own / have seen in a long while.
mircea_popescu: they improved significantly.
ckang: having owned the fake & original you could barely tell the difference
ckang: the good mfgs will use D2 steel and such
ckang: but yea agreed most stuff is 100% garbage
sarah443: There are whole portions of the internet that are pretty much China only. ecommerce wise.
mircea_popescu: sarah443 ok, and it's a living, tenuous and marginal as it may be, buy shit in china resell it in the states. but how's this relate to website defacing ?
ckang: the lengths they go through to counterfeit is pretty wild
sarah443: mircea_popescu: It depends on the attack
sarah443: Remember back during the anon/lulzsec days?
mircea_popescu: yes ?
sarah443: That was all about being vocal, "we did it, so what?"
mircea_popescu: this is a very... perception-driven approach to the events.
sarah443: The social justice hackers, that was a bad example
sarah443: But I don't want to just look over past things and try to figure things out, I want to be there before anything happens
mircea_popescu: well, are you familiar with computer arcana ?
sarah443: Just for a journalistic point, I can't work for law enforcement
sarah443: Im not, arcana is like magic?
mircea_popescu: well, technically arcana denotes finnicky, complicated and not directly obvious points.
mircea_popescu: anyway, if you don't understand computers, how would you "be there" "before anything happens" ?
sarah443: I was thinking arcane :)
mircea_popescu: sure, arcana is the noun of arcane.
sarah443: Well theres movements taking place that eventually will become bigger deals
mircea_popescu: or become nothing at all.
sarah443: In the political communities
mircea_popescu: but do you then have a journalistic platform, like, working relationships with many/most publishers ?
sarah443: You have 2 extremes
mircea_popescu: i'm an extremist after all. gotta keep up the standards.
sarah443: Working with publishers, but I was thinking about maybe doing web editorials. I like the quick turn around time on that media and distribution
sarah443: like Motherboard puts out some interesting reads sometimes
mircea_popescu: it doesn't help your cause that online media is just about dead.
sarah443: The entire darknet market thing was something I really wanted to delv into
sarah443: Super interesting but its being forced further underground
lobbes: not much there, I reckon. usg honeypots
sarah443: Some of the research they did on them was pretty interesting, like quality of drugs for example
sarah443: Was typically way better
mircea_popescu: nobody's forcing anything anywhere ; the "darknet" bla bla is "being forced underground" in the exact sense the previous emo generation was "being forced into the closet".
sarah443: Well, its more so the government cracking down and people get spooked I suppose
sarah443: I folllow deepdotweb on twitter and they have some good articles sometimes
mircea_popescu: spooked my foot, when we looked through the smoldering pile left after that idiot ross, it came to light ~nobody was using rsa.
sarah443: Yeah amazing how others repeat the mistakes the previous iteration.
sarah443: Its almost like planning the perfect murder lol
sarah443: You see those shows and think, "oh, I wouldnt screw that up"
mircea_popescu: eh. the quality of police work has so terribly degraded in the past half century, if anyone does ANY PLANNING AT ALL it's a murder that'll never get solved.
mircea_popescu: half the ones with 0 planning also make the cut.
sarah443: The police are a joke, if you have ever seen that show 'First 48'
sarah443: Its pretty obvious how little they know but try to make people think they do.
mircea_popescu: i don't really watch tv.
sarah443: Same, don't have cable anymore, got to the point where I didn't even use it.
mircea_popescu: but i do get court report summaries and all sorts of other things.
sarah443: I love PACER
sarah443: Can get lost for hours looking through stuff sometimes.
mircea_popescu: so why not make a blog, publish summaries ?
sarah443: I follow little niche stories and try to keep the respective communities up to date on the happenings.
sarah443: They dont see the mainstream media or any other outlet so they would go undocumented otherwise
mircea_popescu: yes, but your problem is that if you don't build either your skill or your platform, you will get absolutely nowhere.
sarah443: My skills are more in sleuthing than writing
mircea_popescu: there's a fundamental difference between "i am sarah and i have a kid to feed" and "i am sarah, and i can put your words before 1mn social media nobodies" or "i'm publish weekly in every porn mag there is" or whatever.
sarah443: Yea that would be a good gig, writing interesting short but digestible articles.
mircea_popescu: sarah443 that's unfortunate, very bright minds were on the record complainign there's no good market for sleuthing for fundamental reasons. like http://btcbase.org/log/2015-08-13#1237185
a111: Logged on 2015-08-13 16:38 asciilifeform: the point i was trying to make is that: i hypothesize that the '0day market' consists very largely of folks who are sitting on 0day and not 'marketing' at all
danielpbarron: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-04-10#1795309 << l0de radio hour, i called in and donated 0.054 via deedbot which was 800 USD at the time, which has become a sort of meme on his show now
a111: Logged on 2018-04-10 02:43 mircea_popescu: iirc douchebag ended up here as a result of danielpbarron saying something in some what was it, free radio movement chat ?
sarah443: Im pretty ADD
mircea_popescu: i did not necessarily agree with him, but that dun make his words go away
mircea_popescu: danielpbarron a right, i recall now.
mircea_popescu: pretty cool huh.
sarah443: The 0day market is very interesting too
sarah443: I wish I had a company paying me to buy that stuff for research, that would be a fun job :)
lobbes: sarah443, have you checked out Qntra, btw? you may enjoy
lobbes: !!up sarah443
danielpbarron: the mtw guy who handled the money for him is currently in huge legal trouble, something about stealing millions of USD from dell computers i think
mircea_popescu: "i wish there were someone paying for what i want to do" is a terrible way to waste a life.
sarah443: I haven't, what is it? Googling now, on phone
mircea_popescu: danielpbarron o.O link or something ?
mircea_popescu: sarah443 qntra.net
sarah443: I like the twitter feed
mircea_popescu: qntra has a twitter feed ?!
sarah443: The content I mean, its interesting
sarah443: Oh, was that a different qntra?
mircea_popescu: holy shit look at that. wtf, twitter's going to the dogs, they've not banned BingoBoingo ?!
a111: Logged on 2016-09-08 00:54 shinohai: Also fixed Qntra bot on twitter until next time it breaks
sarah443: I like twitters delivery, short blips + pic/video
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo "This leaves the question who ha a motive very open." << This leaves the question of who had a motive very open.
sarah443: I hate the site and interface though
danielpbarron: mircea_popescu, https://www.delawareonline.com/story/news/2018/01/30/delaware-hacker-indicted-multimillion-dollar-fraud-scheme/1076443001/
mircea_popescu: dark web. pastebin plox ?
sarah443: Wow, that guy was part of this chat?
mircea_popescu: !#s from:MTW
sarah443: Oh lol, hes here now
mircea_popescu: !!up MTW
deedbot: MTW voiced for 30 minutes.
mircea_popescu: yo MTW!
sarah443: He must be doing okay if hes out.
phf: that's a right and proper bouncer, if you can do 10 years or whatever, come out, and get your logs out of it
mircea_popescu: mirccloud ?
mircea_popescu: anyway, it all revolves on whether they can steal the money back or not. if they can't, they're on their knees begging. with some limited negotiation ability can get to keep a third or so and walk.
mircea_popescu: if they can steal it back however, you're fucked.
sarah443: Yeah, crimes of this nature they want restitution not jail.
sarah443: Spend X a year keeping someone locked up, or bleed them dry of everything they own...
mircea_popescu: brings us right back to http://trilema.com/2017/the-universal-plan-for-wealth/
sarah443: Gov loves the later, sometimes both
danielpbarron: maybe these work: http://archive.is/hIwqY aaand the first one dun wanna archive so .. http://wotpaste.cascadianhacker.com/pastes/IwVY2/?raw=true
sarah443: Whats your opinion on universal basic income? (UBI)
mircea_popescu: ty danielpbarron
mircea_popescu: sarah443 terrible.
trinque: ah man, dark web and UBI
sarah443: Its incredible the range of answers I get on that ;)
lobbes: btw phf I'm digging the unicode hovers in btcbase
trinque: sarah443: you should just go strip in the valley, marry some startup cuck, end up with half his shares in nothing. ah nevermind.
mircea_popescu: that's a point. where do you live sarah443 ?
trinque: mircea_popescu: ack on msg
sarah443: Lol, at my age I wouldnt be a hot commodity.
sarah443: Way more/willing 18 year olds
phf: sarah443: you haven't been in the valley have you
mircea_popescu: you would be, yes. ever read the camwhore article ?
sarah443: mircea_popescu: Florida
sarah443: Most of my friends in Cali are trying to leave though so that should tell me something
mircea_popescu: it's not a bad plan, go to SF for a week, join all the events, from bdsm munches to apple hackathon day, and just doe eye one or two dweebs per. then suck cock like your life depends on it, and then get married.
phf: lobbes: ty, i'm messing with it, i added proper romanization for cyrillic, since it comes up so much. e.g. комсомольская правда! becomes "komsomol'skaja pravda!"
mircea_popescu: sarah443 it should tell you this : they're idiots. gotta do the work.
sarah443: Haha :) Ive done that for free
mircea_popescu: sarah443 yes, but you did it stupidly. as marylin points out : it tastes the same when it comes out of a multi-mn cock.
sarah443: Guess im the idiot
trinque: I'm just saying, similar word salad seems to have swallowed Framedragger whole
mircea_popescu: the key elements are a) high net worth dweebs, not the sorta guys you meet at raves and b) utter abjection, none of that "i'm a person and i have rights" bullcrap.
trinque: arguably bright dood, even
mircea_popescu: the time for that is in divorce court.
sarah443: mircea_popescu: a lot of them, are hard to 'bond' with
sarah443: Very shelled/walled off
mircea_popescu: everyone's easy to bond with if you don't think you're about anything else than bonding.
mircea_popescu: that's how puppies got so popular.
sarah443: Yeah, some chemical confidence may help them too
mircea_popescu: anyway, sure there may be one or two 16yo http://trilema.com/2013/whore-strat/ 's out there. but there's well over 100k dweebs worth over 1mn in paper. out of the money they waste on rent you can buy a farm in the transvaal and enjoy free weekly gangbangs for the rest of your life.
mircea_popescu: "His notariety began seven years ago when he was arrested at a video game convention in Boston and accused of pirating $6 million in game code that was derived from a system used to train CIA agents for combat. May agreed to a Boston judges offer for pretrial probation in exchange for a dismissal of his case." << equivalency degree spelling aside, check out this guy!
mircea_popescu: why don't people say THAT when BingoBoingo goes "who's yo daddy" ? one helluva intro.
sarah443: Im really curious to see what comes out of the newly found crypto wealth kids
sarah443: Every week you see a news story about that happening to some kid
sarah443: Potential is there to do great or horrible things
mircea_popescu: you're seeing it, aren;t you ?
mircea_popescu: i mean... just look at your tits.
sarah443: Its going to be an interesting time ahead though, either way 🤘
mircea_popescu: TOOLTIP FAIL!
sarah443: Did I do something wrong?
phf: parallel conversation
mircea_popescu: DARK conversation underneath!
ckang: wow sarah443 is still blogging, dont think ive ever seen her type so much
sarah443: 🦄 Hey ckang was brushing my teeth about to turn in for the night. mircea_popescu great talking to you, I have more questions than answers now but it has me thinking about what I want to do a bit more 🌑
ckang: lol sarah443 those emojiis arent something you should use on irc
trinque: all I got are boxes over here.
ckang: most clients dont render them right
trinque: I"m projecting my own feelings into them
trinque: they look the same
phf: trinque: try hovering on that line on btcbase though!
ckang: its a unicorn and a moon
ckang: i never realized how many new ones they added
ckang: like they have 6 different skintones
trinque: holy shit phf, it's like google translate for the kids
phf: courtesy of extra 150mb of sbcl memory usage
ckang: jesus its really that large?
