BingoBoingo: Wat do? Leads to a heavy presence of traffic police on foot wearing their yellow vests and covering about a quarter block area immediately around where the crash was the night before.
BingoBoingo: The road in question is the Rambla (not to be confused with The Rambla, the major coastal walk way next to the road where locals sit on grass and hit their Mate crack pipes) which is the closest thing the city has to a freeway.
BingoBoingo: Imagine my surprise walking past and not seeing a single assault rifle or submachine gun among the group given the way the local police arm themselves for other occasions.

mircea_popescu: the former is how erudition without girlfriends is managed by the sort of people who "i spent 30 years in china still don't have local whores ready to be turned out for love".
mircea_popescu: i met some of these.

mircea_popescu: these are the sticky points, roughly.
asciilifeform: whoknows, could be -- wanted chechen, but her compass was broken, lol
mircea_popescu: nah, see, problems with chechek is that she ALSO wants guy who reliably rapes the system/police/hermother.

asciilifeform: i suspect the experiment would quickly reveal where actual blox come from, and from where -- all rubbish, 24/7/365
asciilifeform: ... and give clue re the ~troo~ size of the btc net
asciilifeform: would also be interesting to log chain splittage in real time, but this is luxury.

(the other way to discover it instead of using strace is to run the cpp -v command instead with most of the same arguments)
asciilifeform: ... and prolly a necessary pre-req to stripping support for dynamic linkage entirely
asciilifeform: ( asciilifeform's main hesitation re subj is how to avoid losing e.g. gprof, on box where 0 dynamics. but this is prolly solvable, somehow )
mircea_popescu: guy was pretty good, yeah. moreover, and importantly -- while his best always was over instagram's best, his EVERY ITEM was always above threshold. whereas instagram's AVERAGE item is always below threshold.
asciilifeform: actual artist beats shit out of fungus, noose at 11..

mircea_popescu: the fact that ~every~ item you look at will turn out to have been ~worth~ looking at is overpowering -- because it makes a life of the mind accessible to much more people.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: good chunk of planet3 lacks easy iron. hence aztec etc. dead end people.
mircea_popescu: as it stands right now, i and i alone, with the thin sliver of others who presumably exist and presumably can afford to sift through millions of fetlife tards can afford women.
mircea_popescu: if EVERY woman were in fact worth talking to, much more people could enjoy one.
mircea_popescu: but as they're few and far between, well... "transsexuals".
mircea_popescu: "i'm gay" "why ?" "because okcupid sucks and if i ask someone out at work they'll arrest me"
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform precisely. and this supposedly "nascent" culture in our colonies died before it even fucking begun, drowned in this ever-giving gift of consumerism.
mircea_popescu: you know there's women out there, going through every single endless warehouse, feeling between thumb and index every single item of clothing ? years on end like this, never found anything yet.

mircea_popescu: the original reason encyclopedists were even a thing, in the 1800s, was that their product ~was worth reading~ in all cases. the ~entire use of an encyclopedia is for kids to open it randomly and read interesting things regardless.
asciilifeform: lol i still have that thing. lulzily, they were designed and built by a sort of lone wolf craftsman, thing actually runs a forth interpreter.
mircea_popescu: fail at this, the result is not worth the mention.

asciilifeform: runs on <1mA or around.
mircea_popescu: aaanyways, i will go on the record to say that the ENTIRE instagram ~culture~, which includes the website, the "content creators", the clones, the conference circlejerk and everything else is an inferior replacement of 90s merkley???
mircea_popescu: and if the latter was wortth maybe a few mn all told, the ENTREI instagram ~culture~ (again -- not just the site) is barely worth 10k.
mircea_popescu: which is eerily similar to what these shits ever sell on an open market, be it myspace, slashdot, or whatever else.
mircea_popescu: separated from the jews "doing great business together", the paintings accidentally destroyed by laundry women go back to their proper fishwrapping value.

mircea_popescu: what'd be on it ?
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: ahahaaha, see, but runs on pair of alkalines for ~decade. unlike the 'ordinary' lcd pocket boxen sold in pnoje shops etc
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform now thing for a moment --- "random day of logs". suddenly...
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i'd settle for the dirigible-era encyclopaedia, if it comes to it
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: or THAT!
mircea_popescu: i suppose i could sell random ro trilema page gizmo.
mircea_popescu: in that it's finished, it can be toyified.
mircea_popescu: problem with logs or en trilema is that is not yet finished.
asciilifeform: exactly : l0gz perhaps not best use case, because plentiful linkage to net
mircea_popescu: but see, THIS is why no old world encyclopedia no more.
mircea_popescu: because we've actually and for once "moved beyond that"
mircea_popescu: the log as it is is the log as it is is the log, as it is.
asciilifeform: at one time , pre-tmsr, i thought of reprogramming the thing to display naggum. but before ever got around to any such thing, finished reading all of him, turned out he was pretty small

mircea_popescu: but see, truebeliever.
mircea_popescu: he wanted to use his skill to help what he thought was the republic flourish.
asciilifeform: dunno if that, or if simple failure of imagination, 'hmm, what text will folx read on a b&w lcd ? iknow, pediwikia'
mircea_popescu: sadly what he thought was the republic was the previous decade's reddit, "outgrowth of a pedo picture trading club"
asciilifeform: 'charlie was a chemist, but charlie is no moar, for what he thought was h2o, was h2so4'(tm)(r)
mircea_popescu: speaking of monstrosities like http://btcbase.org/log/2015-01-31#999165 -- i suppose the deep driver of their unhappiness is precisely this, "1990s pedos made wikipedia seem like it's a big deal, and 2000s pedos made reddit seem like it's a big deal. why can't we 2010s pedos make lesswrong/whatever pedo trading post seem like it's a big deal ?!!? god only knows we're the gays of a century ago, god-gifted with the only creativ

mircea_popescu: "cool hackers" means jack shit, what is it, kids trying to impress schoolmates ? menalone going their cool way ? what ?
mircea_popescu: it's one step towards republican awakening, sure, "use the fucking noggin". but it's not much by itself.
asciilifeform: i actually have nfi what specifically the zx2c4 d00d was speaking of.
asciilifeform: but pictured sumthing like this
mircea_popescu: whereas the thing with pedos is that they're one step further on the path -- "we have a BROTHERHOOD". pedophilia in the modern sense is a deeply communal activity -- the more people jacking off to the same videos of beheaded children, the more sustainable the activity of beheading childrten.
asciilifeform: lol some brotherhood, they havent even invented omerta
asciilifeform: ( and is the reason why usg likes to staff 'bitcoin phoundations' etc with pedos )
mircea_popescu: so ... "follow your own mind, irrespective of anything" PLUS "find others like you" creates... well, before tmsr, it created the only hot core of creation in the empire. hence wikipedia, hence reddit, and so on.
asciilifeform: !#s brock
mircea_popescu: "read some fucking history", ie, the holy logs, is arguably (at least, from an usg.blue "expert"'s pov) the ~only innovation we bring.

mircea_popescu: it's eternaly fascinated, for the zoologist, what portions of the human become visible to the goats and when.
mircea_popescu: "oh, he's got shoes, that's what it is!"
asciilifeform: literacy is the only working defense against the http://btcbase.org/log/2014-02-01#472242 thing, and is 'only a terrorist'(tm) 'would make logs'

asciilifeform: with the opposite charge, but aha same basic particle
mircea_popescu: anyway, leaving behind the point -- there's a lot of frustration among "community organizers" (as the niggers prefer to call themselves) when they DO manage to community-organize and nothing fucking happens still.
mircea_popescu: "but teach, this is so unfair, those other guys didn't even do this much!" sorta complaints.

mircea_popescu: see, but this is precisely what i'm saying... "why is my community organizing not doing anything".
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: I dunno he believed anything in particular

asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: from human pov, ~all~ of what these derps do is 'purely performative' -- rather like those ruminants whose horns are set at such angle that they can never actually ding one another
asciilifeform: but from their own eyes, naturally, 'mystery'
mircea_popescu: basically, the zek's model is elliot ; but the pantsuitklatura's model is hamby.

asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: the usual reddit-idjit red herring. ( as if he ~had~ to fuck a 17.9 y.o. whore, to be put on assange list, and would somehow not have sufficed that he wore leather shoes, or maybe said unkind word re j00z, or torrented 'star wars ixxxv' or whatever )

asciilifeform: the unquenchable hatred of the elliots for d00d who had some sort of quasi-desirable sex somewhere , somehow , also , i suspect, helps

Mocky: i wanted to try it. was dealing with a weight problem

a111: Logged on 2018-07-18 00:10 mircea_popescu: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-07-17#1835536 << such a fucking injun. how, just HOW does one get so fucking stupid. "jwz" amirite, "he only wanted to". this existence is too burdensome for the likes of special cunthead.
a111: Logged on 2018-09-17 13:40 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: torvalds's thing reads like the zinoviev&kamenev 'confessions'
asciilifeform: linus formally surrendered, and nao there is, as i gather, auditions being held, for who will get to be his new bob beck politruk;
asciilifeform: and, first auditioner, apparently, none other than old judas esr :
a111: Logged on 2018-09-17 14:14 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: linus's kernel was the last remaining 'open sores' item that was 'usable from upstream' afaik.
asciilifeform: tldr : d00d trying to organize some sort of peasant rebellion, to mop up what remains of the +ev contributors, under guise of 'protest'
asciilifeform: 'Contributors: You were promised something, you laboured for that promise, and now the promise has become a lie. You have remedies available to you now, as-well as in the close future .' etc
Mocky: 'Several users on 4chan’s technology board speculate that Theo is targeted first because he famously resisted an Intel backdoor.'
asciilifeform: i expect either a) whole thing is made to silently evaporate , via the usual means b) gpl is formally unwound by usg 'courts', so rathead et al can carry along. i dun see a c) ...
asciilifeform: ianal, but per current usg copyrasty system, copyrights in fact stay with authors, unless sold ( apriori, as in 'work for hire', or post -- if sold, or reassigned by idiot for phree, as e.g. rms demands of authors )
asciilifeform: so in principle afaik yes folx can demand to get their coad pulled from sjw.linux. nao, what practical result will be, no prizes for guessing.
asciilifeform: ( spoiler : either 0, see above, or >0, in which case microshit gets an even bigger crater than it originally paid for )
asciilifeform: it is interesting to consider diff b/w esr and linus. esr judased a thing he had 0 part in baking, and wanked for 20y on the periphery of. linus on oher hand merrily fucked not only the folx who were dumb enuff to invest 25y into baking with him, but... own life's work
asciilifeform: colour me thick, but i fully expected he'd take cyanide publicly before descending to this kind of bottom.
Mocky: i noticed blackmail conspiracy theory at that link, maybe consorted with 17.99 yo
asciilifeform: and ftr i dun buy mircea_popescu's 'was always a shit' hypothesis. d00d by any possible measure 'by the fruits' was NOT always-shit.
asciilifeform: was 'silent like partizan'. until day x.
asciilifeform: Mocky: it isnt clear to me what sort of blackmail could compare with the surrender. say they put him in electric chair, for killing kennedy, what of it. see also http://btcbase.org/log/2018-09-23#1852995 .
a111: Logged on 2018-09-23 16:17 asciilifeform: 'die not the straw death!'(tm)(r)(odin)
asciilifeform: then again, for all i know, d00d is already trooly and properly dead, and the surrender was penned for him. ( btw anybody located a signed copy ? and what's the most recent signed linus material anyway ? )
Mocky: "NOT always-shit" != "willing to go to the chair still"
asciilifeform: could argue that he already begun quisling when he permitted 'linux foundation' ( sponsor of such 'luminaries' as gavin ) to make use of his trademark
asciilifeform: !#s linux foundation
a111: 44 results for "linux foundation", http://btcbase.org/log-search?q=linux%20foundation
asciilifeform: back then was still possible to explain as act of stupidity, tho
Mocky: I have nfi, never followed closely
asciilifeform: Mocky: i'm not aware of any public discussion re subj to follow, outside of the l0gz
asciilifeform: there appeared out of the usg depths, this squid, 'linux foundation', sponsored at various times erry possible scamola, prb, later gavinisms, tor, etc
asciilifeform: linus in principle had the right to sue for immediate desist of use of his trademark. did not do it.
asciilifeform: ( whether could have won, or not, whoknows, usg 'court' is approx a bank balance contest. but did not even TRY )
asciilifeform: btw upstack peanut gallery thread has coupla interesting nuggets : apparently vultures already circling, professional politruks already publishing their projected ~expenses against linux~ for their 'service' of 'administering code of conduct'
asciilifeform: delish, the smell of fresh corpse, to these, apparently.
asciilifeform: i imagine a maggot's idea of heaven, this, the fresh meat with no prev maggot crew.
Mocky: in other news, Qatar becomes First Gulf State to Offer Expat Permanent Residency http://archive.is/8BXOX
Mocky: but only if lived there for 20 years and among 100 'blessed' applicants per year
Mocky: also apparently lifting exit visa requirement
asciilifeform: 'Qatar is abolishing the exit visa required before expatriate workers are allowed to leave the country' << interesting
asciilifeform: i recall a subj thrd
asciilifeform: 'those born abroad would need to have lived there 20 years' << bit of a downer
asciilifeform: Mocky: makes e.g. ru citizenship look easy.
asciilifeform: ( 5y iirc )
Mocky: seems like a play at keeping those who are already 'lifers', but unofficially so
asciilifeform: 20y puts it in the weight category of jp, lichtenstein, swiss.
asciilifeform: Mocky: likely
Mocky: ha, "However, the new decree stipulates that if a permanent resident leaves Qatar for more than six months, the interior minister could withdraw from the residency"
BingoBoingo: They seem to have the usual "marry a qualified local get a permit" deal
mircea_popescu: o wow, logexplosion
mircea_popescu: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-09-24#1853417 << then people want to talk about how "you can never trust bitcoin operators, always will split and run".

mircea_popescu: somehow i expect the linux bonfire will not be included in the list of http://trilema.com/2012/and-another-one-bites-the-dust-bitmarketeu/
mircea_popescu: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-09-24#1853420 << i re-read his early announcements re nascent linux (publicly, quoted here) and was not impressed. no, not always shit. always manalone. this DOES NOT work.
a111: Logged on 2018-09-24 02:14 asciilifeform: and ftr i dun buy mircea_popescu's 'was always a shit' hypothesis. d00d by any possible measure 'by the fruits' was NOT always-shit.
mircea_popescu: for the exact reason on display : even the most heady, hardy etc still get old and stupid eventually. and later is actually worse than early.
mircea_popescu: anyway. i comiserate, terrible days for asciilifeform ; erryone in his pre-wot just keeps turning shitty.
asciilifeform: eh not exactly sudden, this death
mircea_popescu: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-09-24#1853434 << importantly, did not even do the item which was all that was needed "there are some muppets out there misusing my trademark, they're scammers and do not deal with them"
a111: Logged on 2018-09-24 02:25 asciilifeform: ( whether could have won, or not, whoknows, usg 'court' is approx a bank balance contest. but did not even TRY )
mircea_popescu: make it a toxic item in short order.
a111: Logged on 2018-07-17 13:00 asciilifeform: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-07-17#1835518 << linus is not immortal, and i expect that he will lose control of kernel -- just as he stupidly lost control of his trademark to 'linux foundation' (y'know, with gavin on staff) -- even before dies
mircea_popescu: somewhere someone (lafond maybe ?) explains the problem of "conservative" or "republican" or w/e, johnny cash style pantsuit fucktard, whereby he's "lawyering up" in his mind, and can't curbstomp nigger at first sign of potential disobedience. "oh, he just asked me the time FOR DIFFERENT REASONS ALTOGETHER, this isn't LEGITIMATE REASON to bas his skull in"
mircea_popescu: kinda the problem of freebased i-cant-believe-hes-not-republican, or in asciilifeform 's parlance "partizans" : they have some complicated nonsense about "justifiable use of force" bla bla bla, can't simply bash in heads who "did nothing to you" etc.
Mocky: BingoBoingo, yeah but even if you could find one of the ~30k marriage age females (among 3.7M pop), and convince her to endure the social downgrade and forgo citizenship for any children, MUST then convince bride's father & suiter then converts to islam!
BingoBoingo: Makes the 20 years look easier doesn't it
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i suspect, in these, simple cowardice, they aimt eager to move out of the mental universe where 'law and order' and into the lafond planet where earthly carcass actually finds itself
mircea_popescu: and they are stubbornly stupid enough so that neither display of the correct behaviour (say in the celebrated http://trilema.com/2014/the-public-burning-of-bob-beck/ ) nor the theoretical explanation of the methodology (at leastr in http://trilema.com/2014/the-logical-impossibility-and-the-moral-untenability-of-forgiveness/ ) clicks with the shit in their heads
asciilifeform: i still dun fully grasp the process whereby a theo 'marries' a bobbeck. what's the draw, exactly
mircea_popescu: aaanyway, whatever. the wages of sin are death.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i quoted the ur item here once, i think. was schmuck on "wikipedia admin board" going to "help out" unless "anyone asks him to stop".
mircea_popescu: they just show up, you understand ? remember the item which set the moron bit on djb for me ? some "vance" moron ?
mircea_popescu: these people simply can not crush a cuntbug.
mircea_popescu: exactly for the reason described, "did nothing to me" etc.
asciilifeform: and from this, goes to have power of attourney and trademark rights? bit of a climb eh
mircea_popescu: heir projected ~expenses against linux~ for their 'service' of 'administering code of conduct' << thjis is all the us ever is anymore.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform hey, they got 20 years to slowly do it.
mircea_popescu: but -- yes. the us never had a "leader" other than this sort of scum, slowly worming itself into position. not in the past century, which is to say -- not since it stopped mattering.
asciilifeform: reminds of old-school 'grifters', the kind that marry 85yo heiress
mircea_popescu: precisely what it is.
mircea_popescu: and the principle is so very celebrated there, they even have it enshrined as the ~only basis of senate
mircea_popescu: they go so far as to say "do not vote for this guy, who is new, vote for the known-corrupt-asshole HE HAS SENIORITY"
