BingoBoingo: apt-get: lurking for the Fritzchip or the training camp?
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo, imagine the ambiguity we dwell in! it's not even fucking clear.
apt-get: fritz, although I'm not really much of an expert when it comes to hardware stuff in any way
mircea_popescu: apt-get, so why would you care, if i may ask ?

apt-get: stumbled upon the loper blog by luck and I found it to be a cool project
apt-get: (cr50 reversal, that is)
mircea_popescu: so is it rather a political investment, something in the vein of http://trilema.com/2014/the-problem-of-enforcement/ , "i wish to touch the bars of my cage with mine own hands" ?

apt-get: Well, I don't know if my political leanings would necessarily imply going to such lengths as described in that manifesto, but I am indeed supportive of any attempt to free computing from the proprietary and government boulders placing themselves between the user and the product.
mircea_popescu: the practical problem, though, is that depending of how generous you are with the notion of user, a world without such an interface may not even be possible.
mircea_popescu: if the priors are anything like a) "anyone should have access to computers" and b) "to use as they see fit", you'll be back to some kind of nsa fritz chip in very short order, especially if you're committed to equalitarian socialism (or, "democracy", to use the in-universe names)

mircea_popescu: seems perfectly aware and very very fucking threatened to me, lol.
mircea_popescu: can't apply livresque standards of awareness to the herd, they're not human in that sense. you believe cattle is aware of electified fence, even if no cow ever sat down with you and stated as much over beers and buffalo wings.
mircea_popescu: same thing here, by purely behavioural standards they're as aware as could be.
mircea_popescu: otherwise they wouldn't go about pretending like they believe google is in any way different from groupon, a purely imaginary, 100% paper construction.
apt-get: convenience of usability will always trump freedom when it comes to these things, which is why you don't see minifree or purism making bank on their libre hardware.
mircea_popescu: except the part where the convenience of doing stupid thing is just as inconvenient as anything.
asciilifeform: ... or maybe because it's shit
mircea_popescu: there's just about 0 convenience delivered by the tools of "convenience" and "usability".
asciilifeform: 'purism', 'minifree', organs of the beast.
apt-get: convenience isn't limited to the device itself, it also encompasses a large ecosystem of both social and technical incentives to enter a firm's walled garden.
apt-get: and I don't believe it's possible to fight multi-billion entities when it comes to this.
mircea_popescu: from experience, the only incentive is purelty internal : slave belongs inside, goes inside.
mircea_popescu: apt-get, tmsr is a multi-billion entity.
mircea_popescu: so yes, it is not possible to fight tmsr when it comes to this. all shall crumble before it.

asciilifeform: 'smart' power bricks, see.
asciilifeform: the 'go and cut pins' thing will ~work for certain purposes, but in the very near term it will become entirely unproductive -- they are moving the whole orchestra into single chip. ( e.g. crapple is ~already there. )

asciilifeform: 'red'.usg demonstratively pillorying 'blue'.usg 'activists' etc.
asciilifeform: afaik chinese sit and 'wait for the corpse to float by' just like 1000yrs ago.
mircea_popescu: i can't imagine the chinese actually give a shit about the withc hunts in that obscure european colony.
asciilifeform: virtue of patience, corpse reliably floats by.
mircea_popescu: not anymore than anyone over at alphabet gives a shit about the misadventures of amstan ; or anyone at redhat about the new hole in boeck's ass, or etc.
mircea_popescu: well... in the patient's defense, the anglotards are really not all that interesting.
asciilifeform: about same amt of shit as mircea_popescu gives about the fate of newly-ejected condom, aha
mircea_popescu: and this, from a race that is enthralled by fruit machines.
asciilifeform: wat's a fruit machine
mircea_popescu: you know, those things old ladies put coins intoi
asciilifeform: aa 1armedbandit
asciilifeform: i thought this was in jp
asciilifeform: where folx obsess , play'em
asciilifeform: or was that some local variant.
asciilifeform: (phunphakt -- 'sega' was originally usa/occupation-era co. that made 1armedbandits )
asciilifeform: 'nintendo'--meiji-era titan of playingcard manufacture.
mircea_popescu: afaik it's all small yellow folk.
asciilifeform: poor folx luuuuvvvv to pennyante gamble.
asciilifeform: i don't precisely know why.
mircea_popescu: i dunno, colorful ?
mircea_popescu: but the point of concern for mcguffin-book writers / social media personalities / journalists / whatever else the pantsuit keep telling themselves they do, would be that the chinese can't seem to be bothered to give the slightest fuck. these are some people who find even one arm bandits fascinating.
mircea_popescu: i confess it'd worry me, in their place.
asciilifeform: it is not given to fish, to wonder or worry about the life of the fisherman.
asciilifeform: focus of fish, is the worm.
asciilifeform: delish and entirely 'phreee'
mircea_popescu: you know i just re-read your article, because i was curious. wtf was "unprofessional" about it ?! i mean, yes, there's deliberately constructed anti-"professional" items, like say recently the http://trilema.com/2018/and-in-things-that-didnt-happen-today-heres-192-cracked-github-keys-some-hotties-in-tech-included-yes/ phuctor discussion.
asciilifeform: i think 'professional' is tardcode for 'responsible disclosure' and general usg-fellatio
mircea_popescu: but your piece don't even remotely resemble.
mircea_popescu: oh, like, you weren't "modest" enough ?
mircea_popescu: so basically he can't show "his superiors" that he reads doubleplusungood folk who don't insert a "traiasca tovarasul" sentence twice per paragraph, is the idea ?
mircea_popescu: maybe he gets fired if they think he doesn't like them anymore or something ?
asciilifeform: also witness the redditards, 'harping on tpm, that's SOOO rms from 1997' etc
asciilifeform: i'm surprised that nobody brought up the eating of toe fungus
mircea_popescu: i don't get it, so if there's been a famine going for 20 years meatballs are "soo 1997" ?
asciilifeform: more or less.
mircea_popescu: !!key nikki_ff
mircea_popescu: holy shit, the dumbass managed.
mircea_popescu: !!rate nikki_ff 1 aspiring slavegirl ; also famous for the "piss on the bitch" cocktail.
mircea_popescu: !!v 8DE2EDFE706112BD08BC21F05A0FFA66614A66F04E25101DD36F84384CCABA00
deedbot: mircea_popescu rated nikki_ff 1 << aspiring slavegirl ; also famous for the "piss on the bitch" cocktail.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: revisiting upstack -- i suspect that the decerebrated folx, are not aware of any such famine. google made the perfect fuffle for'em, the dildonic 'open comp' that offers 'fetish of power', go ahead and install linux etc.
asciilifeform: sleeker, moar satisfying anal filler than ye olde wintel's hamfisted offering
asciilifeform: 'it's open, have you looked at coreboot' -- commenter
mircea_popescu: steady diet of lulzsammich, this web.
asciilifeform: for the moar advanced fetishists, even lets you solder contacts and rewrite boot rom etc., 'Чем бы дитя не тешилось, лишь бы не вешалось'(tm)(r)
asciilifeform: 'it's just a tpm, what's yer problem'.
asciilifeform: re 'professionals', i can also picture 'you wrote it like a vuln reveal, but this is not a vuln, this is our masters getting jus primae noctis with our raw starfishes like god intended' irritation
asciilifeform: 'how dare you describe god's chosen as vulgar syphilitic rapists'.
asciilifeform: this is the leitmotif audible to asciilifeform , at any rate.
mircea_popescu: but you don't... do that.
asciilifeform: i've met these folx in the flesh, show'em e.g. http://www.loper-os.org/pub/nobus.jpg and response is lordosis
mircea_popescu: anyway. in the end, i suppose it's pretty amusing to notice that a) indifferent of form b) the reaction will be to substance c) and negative because the substance's not usg-friendly but nevertheless d) claim to be a reaction to form.
asciilifeform: possibly because there is no possible counter-argument to the substance.
mircea_popescu: "usg sucks" "i don't like how you used the word suck" | "usg is dumb" "i don't approve of the usage of verbs" | "the goat is dead" "i don't like the syllable count and this has nothing to do with my suspicion the goat may be a veiled reference to usg".
mircea_popescu: what, and nobody's supposed to notice ?
asciilifeform: starfish is getting broad daylight waltzing, no way to boeck around the fact.
asciilifeform: !Q later tell trinque might be worth testing whether koch's latest lul affects deedbot's gpg hose
lobbesbot: asciilifeform: The operation succeeded.
mircea_popescu: deedbot signs ?
asciilifeform: ( see top qntra )
mircea_popescu: i thought it was specifically signing.
asciilifeform: let's put in the l0gz :
asciilifeform: 'The OpenPGP protocol allows to include the file name of the original input file into a signed or encrypted message. During decryption and verification the GPG tool can display a notice with that file name. The displayed file name is not sanitized and as such may include line feeds or other control characters. This can be used inject terminal control sequences into the out and, worse, to fake the so-called status messages. These
asciilifeform: status messages are parsed by programs to get information from gpg about the validity of a signature and an other parameters. Status messages are created with the option "--status-fd N" where N is a file descriptor. Now if N is 2 the status messages and the regular diagnostic messages share the stderr output channel. By using a made up file name in the message it is possible to fake status messages.'
mircea_popescu: i don't get it, it's supposed to matter when you run it from command prompt neh ?
asciilifeform: ( from the horse's mouth )
asciilifeform: loox like you can stuff arbitrary crapola into the filename field, and it gets term-interpreted to stderr ( where result is shat )
mircea_popescu: ah so the idea is that if shell callout, you might end up with wrong response ?
mircea_popescu: i thought he used his own impl.
asciilifeform: iirc errybody's gpg-using items, callout.
asciilifeform: e.g. vtrons.
mircea_popescu: tho in retrospect i'm not entirely sure why i thought that.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform, well no, eucrypt crypts.
asciilifeform: right but eucrypt is not a gpg-riding proggy.
asciilifeform: ( $nooseitem is not a gcrypt 0day, but gpg particular )
lobbes: http://logs.bvulpes.com/trilema?d=2018-6-10#373478 << lol, I believe it. On the bright side, at least it didn't contain any brain-eating amoebas >> http://archive.is/SJSUG
mimisbrunnr: Logged on 2018-06-10 16:16 Mocky: !Q later tell lobbes I just got back from uwharrie national forest, ~50km east of Charlotte. ftr, 'deep river' is misnomer, more like 'shallow creek'
hanbot: ^ phf please to update, apologies for the hassle.
mircea_popescu: diana_coman, you selling wm ? any q really.
