mircea_popescu: and now it's archived 4evar too
mircea_popescu: "Welcome to my personal home page. There are many pages on this site, but this one is my own."
mircea_popescu: "A brief page with a few annotations about the Girl Genius web comic, for which a link banner appears to the right, is now on this site." holy shit that's terriblty drawn
mircea_popescu: meanwhile in other great accomplishments of the web era,
mircea_popescu: !!up diginet
deedbot: diginet voiced for 30 minutes.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform o btw, re : supreme court upheld yest.
a111: Logged on 2017-01-31 15:10 asciilifeform: and to top off the lulzfest, : 'Microsoft Corp said it has been cooperating with the Washington State Attorney General's Office, which is suing in federal court to stop President Donald Trump's order restricting immigration from several Muslim countries.'
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: lol!
asciilifeform: speaking of dar-al-islam, asciilifeform had nfi, but the nao-defunkt republic of ichkeria had perhaps the most aggressively oddball national anthem :
asciilifeform: ( ^ subj on lolcattube has en+ru sub . << txt translation )
asciilifeform: 'We were born at night when the She-wolf whelped / In the morning, under lions’ howl we were given our names / In eagles’ nests our Mothers nursed us ...' etc
mod6: mornin'
BingoBoingo: Mornin'
mod6: waitin for the furnature?
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform you ddin't know this ?! imo one of their principal achievements
BingoBoingo: mod6: Not quite yet. Waiting for the wait for furniture
mod6: ahh
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: waiwat?! the anthem ?!
asciilifeform: holyfuq
asciilifeform: it is admittedly catchy.
asciilifeform: ( and from orcological pov, attractively-impenetrable, to earthling philologist, language isolate )
mircea_popescu: well i mean... it was kindof a fiume republic neh ?
mircea_popescu: what did they do, the anthem and the moscow theatre invasion.
mircea_popescu: very livresque item altogether.
asciilifeform: iirc they also tried the 'caliphate' thing, with the attendant lulz
mircea_popescu: eh, they're islamic in the sense the us is catholic.
asciilifeform: they did manage to pyrrhicly win the 1st war with ru; erry bit as good orc troops as any, perhaps if cherokees had kalash they could have put up same level of fight.
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Cherokees didn't put up a fight. They made a show of imitating white culture and meaningfully resisted nothing imposed on them.
mircea_popescu: you're mabye thinking sioux ?
asciilifeform: possibly
mircea_popescu: iroquis, pushing a point. quite a lot of pushing.
asciilifeform: maybe not even good continent for comparison, prolly maori better example.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform anyway, i dunno how isolate. "Joƶalla ya marşo" looks exactly like gypsy.
BingoBoingo: Sioux, Apache, fought. Cherokee were one of the five "civilized" tribes that tired to assimilate to verying degrees of rape
asciilifeform: 0, afaik, relation, caucasian lang group is more or less isolate.
mircea_popescu: i have nfi
deedbot: << Qntra - The Great Again Poised To Grab Courts By The Pussy For Decades
asciilifeform: meanwhile, in risc-v nonsense circus,
asciilifeform: while in other 'open sores' idiocy, >> 'With not being able to deliver a 100% fully free software / libre system, the Librem 5 smartphone will rely upon a secondary processor for dealing with the necessary binary blobs for hardware initialization to keep them out of touch from the U-Boot boot-loader and Linux kernel' << pushed as ~feature~ , didjaknow.
asciilifeform: at least google fwiw didn't try to advertise cr50, similar 'feature'.
asciilifeform: and, from same fishwrap , 'Intel CEO Brian Krzanich has resigned effective immediately. Krzanich is stepping down due to a past consensual relationship with an Intel employee and the company's internal investigation has confirmed a violation of their company non-fraternization policies. '
mod6: It's clearly stated on the Washington monument: ``Im reich ist vergnugen verboten!''
mod6: duh
mircea_popescu: is that german for no nookie ?
mod6: mas o menos
mod6: 'pleasure'
mod6: I follow the republic log, down through all the sarc; listening to the lords exchaaange.
mod6: A Ft. Meade summer night, pantsuits passing by; listening to the taps of stingrayyyyyy.
mod6: *whistling*
mod6: ben_vulpes: you wanna go to def^H^H^Hfedcon and set up a pizarro booth?
mircea_popescu: mod6 isn;t las vegas actually closer to you ?
mircea_popescu: or did they move it meanwhile
asciilifeform: mm quality
asciilifeform: mod6: a few yrs ago asciilifeform went ( or rather, was sent ) to a smaller/sadder version of said item, 'shmoocon', you wouldn't believe the sort of snake oil that was sold there
asciilifeform: and the sheer redditude of the attendees
asciilifeform never been to the orig vegas 'fedcon' tho
asciilifeform: << lol missed this, but nao i'm curious, mircea_popescu , how come the 'wolf men' duncount as islamic ?
a111: Logged on 2018-06-28 15:22 mircea_popescu: eh, they're islamic in the sense the us is catholic.
asciilifeform: afaik they kept all the good parts.
mod6: <+mircea_popescu> mod6 isn;t las vegas actually closer to you ? << naw, but doesn't matter. im sure that they wouldn't let us set up a booth anyway.
mod6: anyway, was just a thought to getting the pizarro name out there a bit.
mod6: bbl
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform for the precise reason stated, marginal weirdo cultish folk. why's ukrainian not count as russian ? at least the ukrs have the claim on ~inventing~ it.
mircea_popescu: mod6 why not ? pretty sure all it takes is money. the sure sign of booth not doing anything.
asciilifeform: << tidbit of lulz , via #p
asciilifeform: 'Today 28 June at approximately 20:20 UTC unknown individuals have gained control of the Github Gentoo organization, and modified the content of repositories...' etc
BingoBoingo: <asciilifeform> << lol missed this, but nao i'm curious, mircea_popescu , how come the 'wolf men' duncount as islamic ? << Perros no son halal. Perros son haram!
a111: Logged on 2018-06-28 15:22 mircea_popescu: eh, they're islamic in the sense the us is catholic.
BingoBoingo: The sleeping surface did indeed arrive.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: amusingly enuff , even the troo diehard ukrs are entirely ru-speaking folx, at least when camera aint rolling. and , extra lulzily, ditto the chechens ( witness, their 'all things ru suxxx!' 'official' www linked earlier -- 100% in ru )
mod6: mircea_popescu: well, after thinking about it a bit, I don't remember seen "booths" like I was thinking of there. was at least 15 years ago though.
mod6: maybe it's different now. i'll see what I can find out.
mircea_popescu: mod6 not that big a deal either way
mircea_popescu: they're not supposed to hurt, no. if they do give it a rest.
asciilifeform: lol was that meant for the roadconetraining chan ?
mircea_popescu: ima take a mod6 on this one.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform so this is it for "public" gentoo then ?
asciilifeform: 'public gentoo' rotted to ~unusability some time ago
a111: Logged on 2018-06-05 00:46 asciilifeform: i dun recall if i mentioned : as of coupla wks ago, no moar 'emerge portage' on asciilifeform's-ban-masks gentoo boxen : it now ~demands~ gpg2 turd.
trinque: toggled by the rsync-verify use flag, not that I'm excusing it.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i considered making a -style canned gentoo out of my dulap trad-gentoo, but really would rather switch to trinque's item when it is baked
trinque: oughta be pretty clear gentoo's firmly in satan's hands these days
asciilifeform: when i ditch the last glibctronic gentoos, it won't be a day too soon.
mircea_popescu: and in other great webpage designs,
mircea_popescu: "represents a major upgrade of our system and is, as far as we are aware, the only system of it's type that's been developed on RISC OS." << read one line, run into one spelling error. this bodes well for the LOC.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: ancient brit item. from bbc acorn, the orig perpetrators of arm arch.
asciilifeform: today in ~same archaeological circlejerk as e.g. 'beos'
mircea_popescu: still in use, though, somehow, as someone actually loaded trilema on one.
asciilifeform: somewhere prolly even amiga still in use.
mircea_popescu: oh, that, definitely.
mircea_popescu: and even macintosh.
asciilifeform: iirc BingoBoingo actually loaded trilema on a '80s mac box
asciilifeform: ( the one with amiga cpu )
mircea_popescu: if anyone still cares, freebsd 6.82%, openbsd 93.17%
asciilifeform: this the bsd split ? or total?!
mircea_popescu: just the bsd.
mircea_popescu: aaaand os x 10.4 (tiger) still exists.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: not only still exists, but asciilifeform ( and iirc phf also ) have working examples .
mircea_popescu: irix! amigaos! os/2! etc.
asciilifeform: irix ? got .
mircea_popescu: sun solaris, look at that.
asciilifeform: lol slowaris
mircea_popescu: nono, ~Sun~ Solaris.
mircea_popescu: someone should make Moon Lunaris, be done with esltardation altogether.
asciilifeform: lol sun was actually quasi-respectable at one time
mircea_popescu: yeah, well...
asciilifeform still has ancient 'pizza box' sun , from that era
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu do you recall your essay where 'more common than anyone admits, chix keep the stuffed bear they frottaged the hell out of at age 12, well into adulthood' or how it went
asciilifeform: gotta wonder if some folx do this re old comp
mircea_popescu: im sure they do.
asciilifeform: 'this os/2 box still runs, why should i change it'
mircea_popescu: i still had my old z80s in a drawer somewhere well into the 3rd millenium
asciilifeform: and i have c64 etc
asciilifeform: drawer not quite same thing as active duty tho
asciilifeform: gotta wonder who still reads from the irix box. prolly some fella who is stuck operating one in some godforsaken corner of heavy industry
mircea_popescu: i suppose one could just doctor the strings.
asciilifeform: could, but who can be arsed.
asciilifeform at one time had box that was suchly configed, to report 'kremvax'
asciilifeform: re irix boxen -- the last pre-intelization machines, e.g. 'octane', 'octane 2', were princely, errything-hotswappable, on rails, copper meshing against emp, redundant cpu/memory/power/etc, prolly eternal.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: the very same massscan Framedragger used
asciilifeform: y'know, for the ssh surveys
mircea_popescu: ah, it is isn't it.
a111: Logged on 2018-05-03 02:41 asciilifeform: Framedragger's 'massscan' proggy does not clog state table tho, it has own peculiar ip stack that goes 'statelessly'
asciilifeform: it is depressing to learn that it lives on shithub tho. prolly not a bad time to grab copy before it evaporates.
asciilifeform brb,meat
phf: << in 2005 or so shmoocon still had vestiges of phrack culture, as has been discussed plenty on here it all finally died sometime 2010
a111: Logged on 2018-06-28 20:48 asciilifeform: mod6: a few yrs ago asciilifeform went ( or rather, was sent ) to a smaller/sadder version of said item, 'shmoocon', you wouldn't believe the sort of snake oil that was sold there
phf: there was an occasional poc||gtfo speaker doing not necessarily particularly sophisticated, but at least aesthetically pleasing hacks. and of course you could meet oldfags in the hallways. but even back then you could see that the community is being replaced by martin marlinspooks with throngs on millennial sycophants, but at least you could avoid them if you wanted to. i heard that's no longer the case.
asciilifeform: phf: my 1 'shmoocon' trip more or less cured me of the notion of going to any such thing again
phf is actually going to HOPE, which was always a parody of a "hacker culture", coming as it is from 2600 circles, but at it's in new york and it's an opportunity to spend time with my new york friends. last time i was at HOPE that was 2010 or so, when the whole theme was g.w.bush as 1984/hitler. at least hope delivers in lulz department. wozniak is going to be there, signing apple ii's or whatever.
asciilifeform: one of these things that had its day in the sun, but nao ~dead..
phf: HOPE is very new york, it's a bunch of fashionistas pretending like 90s never ended and The Hackers was for real
asciilifeform: gotta wonder if at some point the nostalgia culture will be in turn replaced with nostalgia-for-the-old-nostalgia-culture with each new generation of moar-redditous derps
asciilifeform: and just how tall do these stack.
asciilifeform: phf: soon they'll be pretending that the 10s neverended..
phf: i wonder if some decades are not really destined for a general come back, like the 70s
asciilifeform: and why is their imagination/horizon so weak anyway -- why not instead pretend that 70s neverended and 'wargames' 'was real'
phf: i suspect because the 90s hackers were a lot more mainstream, i mean they had prodigy and orbital, rollerblades and spray painted laptops. i guess wargames is from the time when nerds weren't "cool" at all, though they did have progressive rock, so i guess that counts for something..
phf: for expert entomologists
phf: << famous incident with kuchma, when he called gas burner "газова горілка"
a111: Logged on 2018-06-28 23:25 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: amusingly enuff , even the troo diehard ukrs are entirely ru-speaking folx, at least when camera aint rolling. and , extra lulzily, ditto the chechens ( witness, their 'all things ru suxxx!' 'official' www linked earlier -- 100% in ru )
asciilifeform: bahahahaha
phf: amusingly enough if you search "газова горілка" there's a bunch of online stores that sell... gas burners!
phf: (the correct word could also be derived from russian, but it's a different root "пальник")
phf: (for the logs, "gas burner" in russian is "gazovaya gorelka". certain russian words have ukr equivalents where the form modification follows a set of somewhat recognizable rules. the president of ukrain not knowing the correct term of "gas burner" in ukranian attempted just such modification transforming "gazovaya gorelka" into "gazova gorilka", which sounds ukranian and "gazova" is correct word, unfortunately for him "gorilka" only ever means "vodka"
phf: in ukranian)
