lobbes: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-07-03#1831528 << the latter worx. I'll keep a running credit for you and apply to future balances. But if at any point you want to cash in the credit for ecu (or BTC) I will.
a111: Logged on 2018-07-03 16:02 mircea_popescu: and also, you wanna pay me the extra back in ecu in eurloa or keep it on books as prepayment for future auctions ?

mircea_popescu: not dead, just progressed, whodda thunk it.
diana_coman: uhm, weird stuff: sent the !!v on that !!pay to deedbot but no answer; and otherwise it does answer to further !!ledger (not showing the payment) -> did I mess something up there, trinque ?
mircea_popescu: diana_coman semantics might've just changed, see log
diana_coman: it gave me the otp ; it just did not reply/confirm/do anything with the decoded string sent via !!v
diana_coman: or what, now I can't pay using old method?
mircea_popescu: idea being that no more number

diana_coman: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-07-04#1831631 -> I messed it up because pay instead of pay-invoice so it didn't go through, fine; but now it seems still stuck

mod6: Lords and Laides of The Most Serene Republic: I'd like to announce that in addition to looking for a new manager for Pizarro, we are also looking someone to fill the role of Treasurer. Please let us know if interested in either role. Thanks!
mircea_popescu: btw, asciilifeform phf or other conaisseurs of ye olde mosfilm : you'll prolly much enjoy http://trilema.com/2012/the-lords-of-flatbush/ ; it's basically the tough youth of soviet agitprop, in all the formal particulars, except functionally he runs away like a rabbit and sees no problem with this.
mircea_popescu: it makes a very in interesting point re "cultural wars" and "rock and roll killed the soviet union", namely, that cca 1950 the su was winning the cultural war, very much so, the larger of the "allies", the most accomplished, sending dogs in space and building the new frontier
mircea_popescu: as far as uneducated, "hard" ustardian kids were concerned, the dilemma stood between stories of killing injuns and "building a civilisation out of a wilderness" by then two generations expired, or else ~kids just like them actually doing it~, driving motorcycles through the endless dusts of the middle earth and erecting oil pumping metropolises across the siberia.
mircea_popescu: there was ~a very good reason~ for mccarthyism, as it turns out, specifically this fear among the warren buffett class of the period that the kids are just about going to desert them.
mircea_popescu: it never happened, but it never happened at the cost of the 60s.
mircea_popescu: diana_coman well, possibly no-number not implemented yet! am i being helpful yet ?
diana_coman: lol, will wait for trinque to come to the rescue
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform hey, it's how "research" gets published on all sorta "topics" in the empire of idiots.
BingoBoingo: In other news the semi-rigid water lines are popping all over the city, just like in mircea_popescu's America

BingoBoingo: lol @ govcom.org
mircea_popescu: you don't understand, the imperial republic-lite is liek totally serious biznis!
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: I assume the retarded dignity of las trabajadoras or some shit
BingoBoingo: Prostitution here is legal. Whiskerias are one of the legal avenues for the prostitution. The paper did cite it was anti-sex male anti-feminists behind it.
mircea_popescu: basically, they're just as ugly & lazy as argentina's http://trilema.com/2016/lxs-ninxs/ and on the lookout for "explanations" as to why they're not doing any business ?
BingoBoingo: As far as I can tell anti-sex work activism here is for the loser boys and girls during those two years between discovered they are wanted for sex and discovering they enjoy the sex too
mircea_popescu: aanyways, "soros projects" http://www.govcom.org/scenarios_use.html prolly worth snapshotting
BingoBoingo: Still, that domain name... Why not govcomorgccinfo.net
mircea_popescu: because soros not that poor yet.

wyrdmantis: Someone contacted me and asked if I know someone willing to sell bitcoin in large quantity at 10% discount, via wire transfer. Anybody here knows such a person, or any idea about where to find her?
mircea_popescu: could tell the mysterious someone to look on localbitcoins

mircea_popescu: !!rate wyrdmantis -1 has no business here.
trinque: diana_coman: did you mean !!pay-invoice ?
trinque: the semantics have not changed yet
trinque: you were paying lobbes 3 bitcoin.
trinque: I suppose by now we'd better move to !!settle-invoice before the command proximity maims a friend
diana_coman: trinque, yes! aha, so all I need to do is do the !!pay-invoice lobbes 3 and that's it; correct?

BingoBoingo: Until you register you're a stranger and every time you show is essentially your first time
brazilish: btw, I want to ask if there is some reference here about how correctly doing safe computing, because i feel that if I create a pgp private key on my current setup, USG would already have it pre-seeded
brazilish: now on xubuntu 17.10, w/o firewall and no special security measure
brazilish: is there any safer distro out of the box?
BingoBoingo: There's a bit of literature out, but consensus is you are best off baking your own gentoo
BingoBoingo: This is for an arm board, but the cuts asciilifeform makes are a good start on any platform http://www.loper-os.org/?p=2295
brazilish: bsd or linux?
mircea_popescu: meanwhile intellectual dispute in mp household over who came up with calling marlon brando a potato ; resolved by "eh, shut up and go do some dishes", followed by suspect silence.

mircea_popescu: brazilish considering how much you're worth atm, it'll be good enough for now. can always switch it out later.
mircea_popescu: you also don't need a safe for your shoes.
brazilish: how can i switch a pgp key keeping the history? everyone that sent a rating need to send it again to the new pgp key?
mircea_popescu: nah, you can replace the key you use.
