mod6: mircea_popescu: That seems at least like a decent place to start; some sort of greeting and gathering of contact information.
mod6: If the idea is for nicoleci to go further and answer questions from persons herself, yeah, we probably aught to have a list of pre-canned responses.
mod6 bbiab
mircea_popescu: will be happy to halp.
mircea_popescu: meanwhile in lulz, "A Banksy was left in shreds before an shocked audience moments after it was auctioned off at Sotheby’s in London for a record $1.4 million. The British artist, whose identity is still unknown, timed his painting, Girl With Balloon, to self-destruct via a shredder hidden in the artwork’s frame."
BingoBoingo: But what bigger Lulz is he distracting from? Trump got his judge, Bolnasaro is going to the beach tomorrow before beginning his run off campaign, and is Mosul still there or is it another six weeks?
mod6: !!ledger
deedbot: http://p.bvulpes.com/pastes/2fOKR/?raw=true
mircea_popescu: six tweaks.
BingoBoingo: sink twinks?
mod6: mircea_popescu: Cool, thanks. Was thinking that maybe nicoleci would start with a simple small set of pre-canned responses, and also collect contact information. And during the call, any questions not covered by set of canned responses, can be written down and handed back to the forum or Co-chairs for answsering.
mod6: Probably via email if that seems alright.
mod6: In a timely fashion of course, figure what, 48 hours? 72?
mod6: Also, unrelated to that... S.MG's UY3 invoice is still open (for september). Just a heads up - obviously no big worry or anything. Just saw that the S.MG statement is out there, didn't want ya to overlook that.
mod6: BingoBoingo: Please to bid 76M for hanbot's auction -- between this one and trinque's, we're already half-way there to next month. Not bad!
mod6: I'll send you the coins here in just a bit.
BingoBoingo: !Qbid 367 76M

mod6: Alright BingoBoingo that's more than enough, but leaves you some wiggle room to make some counter-bids, should they be required.
BingoBoingo: ty, will also keep my eyes open for other new auctions that pop up
mod6: Any left over, can be simply retained by you, and accounted for next cycle, or you can send me back the remainder, if that's how you'd like to handle it.
mircea_popescu: alright.

mod6: Beyond this, a list of answers to some obvious first questions can be added. Other questions not covered can be written down and sent to us for answering, emailing resposnes.
mircea_popescu: just in case anyone else's making audio cd's for the car, for i in *.mp3; do ffmpeg -i "$i" -f wav "${i%}.wav"; done
mircea_popescu: piece of shit does not know what ffmpeg -i *.x *.y could POSSIBLY mean

mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo hey, restitution's a powerful tool.
BingoBoingo: "Este artículo lo puede ver en este link: https://www.elobservador.com.uy/nota/robo-a-sus-companeros-pero-el-bcu-no-la-destituyo-porque-devolvio-el-dinero-2018105212741 "
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: resitution is powerful, but the mitigating factor was... kleptomania
mircea_popescu: heh
BingoBoingo: A clinical disposition to continue stealing
BingoBoingo: I mean 25 to 35 percent unemployment and the Banco Central is stuck with a klepto because "public employee"

mircea_popescu: dude not a single one of those schmucks looks like they could stand their ground.
BingoBoingo: At this point whether someone looks like they can throw arespectable punch is a pretty good heruistic for sorting white trump voters from terminal pantsuits cucks
mircea_popescu: i believe.
mircea_popescu: the very feminine attitude, too, "here's my cunt, come find me". what the fuck ?! nobody's going anywhere looking for dorky boys.

phf: ^ asciilifeform, mircea_popescu
phf: differ is also c code, i wanted to figure out how to make the rename tracking algo pure ada, and then have it drive the differ, rather than writing more c code, but i'll see if i can manage it
asciilifeform: phf: neato, lemme know if you need a hand

phf: ty
phf: it was left behind on the x60, and picking up x60 again reminds me just how nice of machine it is
asciilifeform: phf: it is, innit.
asciilifeform: all but for the lcd
asciilifeform: ( i fucking hate the lcd on that thing )
asciilifeform: and the battery ( i've bought 4 types of replacement, incl. supposedly 'original', none lasted > 6 mo. )
asciilifeform: and none good for >3h when new
phf: right, i basically treat the battery as a ups, i.e. hold it long enough for me to move it from place to place
asciilifeform: i had to actually use it as a battery-powered box on pizarro voyage, and it sucked
asciilifeform: ( mass budget allowed for 2 batteries, and i ended up tossing one right there in BingoBoingostan )
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: I might have seen it at the feria recently on a table that also had a Macbook Air...
phf: i've traveled with it before, but yeah, i'd turn it off, plug it in somewhere, turn it on. c101pa on the other hand has an insane battery life: i've been running it in pure console mode, and it will last a day or two
asciilifeform: phf: http://www.loper-os.org/pub/x60_piz_roof.jpg << subj. no mains socket on that roof.
asciilifeform: phf: c101pa would last ~week if power management thing worked...
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: 'crapple air' suxx ballz, i wrote mine off long ago
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: on top of crappleism -- actually ~slower~ than x60, and smaller battery, and shit kbd
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Likely how it made it to the feria. Feria is powered by dumpster finds and sticky fingers
asciilifeform: and for its cost you can buy 4 or 5 x60
asciilifeform: phf: i drained the battery in ~2h on airplane (putting finishing touches on rk gentoo), then again in the rack (1st usa->orc mains plug brick fell apart) then again on roof...
phf: what's kind of silly and i think mp made that point a while ago, that none of the manufacturers of that vintage attempted to do a swapable battery. a dual battery slot, or a smaller internal battery that would keep the thing powered for ~60 seconds it takes to switch the battery
asciilifeform: phf: thought about soldering a supercap in there
asciilifeform: but not much room
asciilifeform: phf: i have a massive lenovo tank lappy that takes 2 batts. but it was out of the question on acct of mass
phf: gut the x60 chassis, put rk in there, though you're still stuck with the screen
asciilifeform: ( lenovo w540, if anybody cares )
asciilifeform: phf: screen is the big sad
asciilifeform: phf: at one time there were rumours of a ips panel that could be stuffed into x60 and had compatible connector/timings , but afaik it's just that, rumour, i was never able to get close to one
phf: i'm weird in that respect, i don't mind seeing pixels, reminds me of better times as far as computing. i make it extra ugly too, e.g. i run windowmaker, aliased fonts, the works
asciilifeform: mine's on ratpoison, and has iirc 9pix fixed width font.
phf: i forgot do you wear glasses?
asciilifeform: oh yes
asciilifeform: and i suspect the x60 is at least partly answerable for their getting thicker
phf: i have this terminal at 16px :>
phf: i could read 9pix, but fuck that
asciilifeform: if i cant fit 80col , machine aint usable, per my lights
asciilifeform would happily pay a coin or 2 for a sane lappy -- <1kg, readable panel, day of battery . but it dun exist.
asciilifeform: even if i finally crack the puzzler of c101pa boot and encuntooation -- thing's palpably small.
asciilifeform: for gurl it'd be ok lappy. but not for folx with full size hands, i suspect
asciilifeform: x60 was just about ideal, if on minimal size, for kbd size.
phf: eink screen, 4:3 aspect ratio, old thinkpad keyboard, 1 week battery life :p
BingoBoingo has been surviving on an X120e since before we started calling this thing TMSR
phf: serial port, obviously ethernet, etc.
asciilifeform: phf: incidentally i found that sharp inc makes b&w lcd's that run on 0power when holding picture, and beautiful 100% reflector-powered picture. but their biggest is iirc 4 in. and 336 × 536 .
BingoBoingo: The hands adjust
asciilifeform: LS032B7DD02 .
asciilifeform: i ordered a sample recently , just for the hell of it.
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: i've got pretty big hands, had to learn '8 fingers' typing on ye olde toshiba libretto back when had it
BingoBoingo: Aha, 8 fingers is part of the trick
asciilifeform: it sucks.
BingoBoingo: I dunno, I think my hands have the stockholm syndrome pretty good on this issue
asciilifeform: i can easily see why mircea_popescu doesn't do lappies, and i wouldn't either if i didn't regularly get meself into adventures that require'em
asciilifeform: esp. pizarro voyages, these will always call for lightest available lappy, erry gram costs.
asciilifeform bbl,meat
mircea_popescu: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-10-07#1859325 << uterly indefensible choice, "we make lappy with ONE battery". all lappies of all time should have had two. so what if smaller two ? hotswappable!

mircea_popescu: but, by the time lappies started, thinking was long out of us process.
mircea_popescu: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-10-08#1859338 << afaik, also made this point. why the fuck bother with anything under 16 bold, what, they've won me at poker ?

a111: Logged on 2018-10-08 00:12 BingoBoingo: The hands adjust
BingoBoingo: At this point, untraining the hands is likely to be a challenge
BingoBoingo: In other local new, Make Brasil Great Again appears to have nearly outright won the presidency. Still waiting on official results, but instead of the 27-30% take he was supposedly polling now it is looking like a 45-50% take
BingoBoingo: But naturally all of the pantsuit flavored publications are painting this as "Candidate Underwhelms By Failing To Avoid Runoff" instead of embarrassing overperformance versus their polls
mircea_popescu: o noes, pantsuit wank off by 20% as per usual ?!
