ben_vulpes: mod6: i ask for your corroboration of a log line in that letter.
ben_vulpes: asciilifeform: i will let you know if i need more time to finish the august audit by tomorrow eve.
ben_vulpes: BingoBoingo: glad to be of service
BingoBoingo: ben_vulpes: Let me know if ther is anything I can do to help
BingoBoingo: ben_vulpes: Also let me know if you have any questions about how the clarifying notes were cut from the listing of customer accounts should you have the time. I would like to kill the idea of a pile of clarifying notes being something every account has and restrict account particular notes to being a rare thing noted for eventually bringing an account into concordance with standards, however they fall.

lobbesbot: BingoBoingo: The operation succeeded.
ben_vulpes: BingoBoingo: i certainly will on both points, although not tonight. i don't see sticking subscriptions into a db as a particularly difficult thing at all.
BingoBoingo: ben_vulpes: What I've mostly been running into is archaeology, three people saying the same thing three different ways.
ben_vulpes: one of the things dbs are good for is the shared spreadshit and enforcement of only one way of saying things. razoring off places to get creative is a boon to getting shit done.
ben_vulpes: provided the shit getting done is largely the same time and again.
mircea_popescu: http://bimbo.club/?p=82&cpage=1#comment-35 << it's kinda funny that BingoBoingo 's ~current~ memories of his drunken years still sound drunk af.
mircea_popescu: kinda interesting premise for a short, someone starts a drying clinic ~for memories~. "yes mr x, we understand you haven't been drinking for years... but your memories of a decade ago still need wringing out!"
mircea_popescu: re the razoring above : http://trilema.com/2013/youre-gonna-have-to-learn-that-variety-speak/#footnote_15_51632 and think about it : creativity ~has to be limited in place~. can't go creative simply wherever one creatively feels the itch ; the whole point of society, the entire justification of eating the otherwise significant costs of even having a society in the first place, is this limitation of creativity to specific plac
mircea_popescu: "Mircea_popescu made the point that, useful people are useful and not useful is useless" ; "Qatar has no sense about opportunity" ; "Bingoboingo provided an update on qntra that, Canada has no bud to sell" this shit is fucking histerical.

mircea_popescu: in fairness, there's also the occasional gem. "Forced conduct prohibits genuine relationships" no shit. it's like reading the charlie chaplin version of carnegie.

mircea_popescu: good fucking thing these morons "progress&civil rights for women". because totally, living in a concrete box @"the beautiful" as a sex slave so much beats being a 1950s housewife
mircea_popescu: at least this is impersonal, right.
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: Well, gotta tell the history with fidelity to the memory.

mircea_popescu: she's too fat to be worth shedding.
asciilifeform: could very well be troo, i have nfi

asciilifeform: erry so often, d00d with money gets a hold of one of these chickens, and gotta make silk purse from sow's ear somehow
mircea_popescu: and yet they still don['t make the leather couches!

mircea_popescu: would bother with what ?
asciilifeform: taking 1 of these and having it sewn into human form
mircea_popescu: well in practice i havent ; in theory i dunno, cuz we're believers in the human spirit and haven't yet turned down someone because he's black or whatever ?
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform anyway, do you see how this relates to the ia/ai discussion ?
asciilifeform: not directly?
mircea_popescu: you wanna fix the brains that are, or replace them with some other brains that aren't ?

asciilifeform: from mircea_popescu's www, lol
mircea_popescu: the articulation of the comparison is (brains as in w/e makes males valuable) vs (whatever makes females valuable). as a gender construct.
mircea_popescu: if you're willing to teach bois math, why aren't you willing to sew girls a new coat.
mircea_popescu: bullcosby that's my slavegirl on my roof of my buenos aires residence a few years ago.

mircea_popescu: and this does not apply to teaching bois math because ? math also won't fix the underlying problem that resulted in their having to learn how to think properly in the first place.
echelon: how do i identify myself to deedbot, it says my key is already registered
mircea_popescu: echelon using that key.

asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: nobody's born knowing maffs, or piano, or pilotage, but most critters come from factory with firmware 'how to stop eating when not hungry'. if this is broken, new coat dun fix
mircea_popescu: bullcosby suppose you just read all of trilema as a goodboi, and let it change what you are, rather than expect you're important enough for your malformed desires to be gratified.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform and the reason for http://btcbase.org/log/2018-11-01#1868388 is different than the reason for "stop eating when not hungry" ? both were equally obvious at all points.

mircea_popescu: the reason you can't up yourself is that nobody here cares about the people who rated you there (indeed, some are known scammers, some are entirely unknown nobodies etc).

echelon: i worked for hbo, setup their forensic watermarking service
mircea_popescu: more's the thing : is this something you actually are, in the sense of having spent a decade+ doing it, or is it something you simply http://trilema.com/2013/search-and-destroy/#selection-65.1-65.96 wish-to-be ?

deedbot: echelon voiced for 30 minutes.
echelon: ben_vulpes: yeah, on bezosnet, but using the api for automated provisioning with ansible and stuff
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: copyrasty crackpottery, where 'seekrit bitz in .avi so to find which cinema leaked to piratebay'
mircea_popescu: what's this supposed to even be, in human language, "i wrote the bills of purchase for the project manager in charge of provisioning the one room in hbo tower where they take copied hard-drives to see whether there's hbo shows on them, aka devops eng" ?
echelon: mircea_popescu: it's like stegonagraphic watermarking, so even if you resize the video resolution, they could forensically identify the source of the piracy
asciilifeform: i'm moar than a little bit surprised that d00d admits to having perpetrated such lulz, just it alone takes 9000 yrs in purgatory to atone for
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform imo he's just repeating something he's read online.
asciilifeform: parsimonious hypothesis
mircea_popescu: which is i guess an ok strategy, both for the http://trilema.com/2012/law-enforcement-never-fails-to-unintentionally-entertain/ fucktards as well as for the sirius/vandroyi/whatever-style "i am disgusted with you morons" autists.
mircea_popescu: consider alf, that you're not the only one to have noticed http://www.loper-os.org/?p=939 ; most intelligent people in fact did. you're just among the few to have managed to break through the usual disease of intelligent people, aka http://btcbase.org/log/2017-04-09#1641209

mircea_popescu: they're pretty much the same i think.
echelon: asciilifeform: it was watermarked in real-time on their "go" service
mircea_popescu: drinking by yourself, you know. what the fuck is it ? some variant of the above.
echelon: i dunno if they do anything different now
mircea_popescu: was that a "stream over internet hbo shows" thing ?
asciilifeform: echelon: copyrasts' 'technical investments' are possibly some of the dumbest schemes on this side of emperor qin shihuangdi's hg immortality pills
asciilifeform: what exactly is to keep 3 users from taking their 3 'marked' copies and xor'ing together.
echelon: mircea_popescu: yeah, it was actually a separate service from "now" streaming service
echelon: "go" was an offering for cable/satellite subscribers
mircea_popescu: mkay. and the idea was to put the ip or w/e of the "subscriber" into the downloads so that if they turn up on torrents hbo lawyers know what soccer mom to send abusive readers' digest spam to ?
mircea_popescu: ie, a job that's strictly impossible in the general case, but then again dealing with the sort of morons who actually care about hbo, so not quite hard to do in particular.
echelon: yeah, but most pirates just ripped from a tv tuner anyway, so i don't think it had much effect
mircea_popescu: and so it's "devops" because what exactly, you wrote them a ruby gem or w/e. ?
echelon: no, i just worked with ansible and aws api's mostly
mircea_popescu: the chicks that commission actual installations for me, be it an acre of ground-to-ground missile tubes or a parking lot, are devops. not the chicks that copy recipe books.
echelon: and log centralization and alerts
asciilifeform: 'i am atomic engineer' 'tell us about sumthing you engineered' 'well, i swept floor of reactor room for coupla weeks'
mircea_popescu: but be that as it may. there's ~nothing of interest to you here, so you can just safely forget about it.

mod6: I can confirm that approximately ".2" was said to be held in BingoBoingo's custody outside of the deedbot wallet. And I can confirm that I have notes that state that you paid mats .3, and to reduce the amount by .5 total.
mod6: Anyway, if it's helpful, I'm happy to sign my deedbot wallet ledger and publish it for those to review. Just say the word and will do.

mod6: I dunno, bad idea I guess. Just realized that there really is no way to verify someones ledger.
mod6: Other than just by what people say.
mircea_popescu: kinda the point, yeh.
mod6: I guess I didn't know that.
mod6: I actually figured, that in the case where or if someone's deedbot history was ever called into question, someone would verify the claim.
mod6: Anyway, I apologize for bringing it up.
trinque: if someone shows me the thing didn't work, I go fix a bug, but dispute resolution between users happens in *your* courts, not mine. if I later condescend to involve myself in the affairs of lowlier folks than anyone present, it'll come yes with a hefty fee, or hanging both, or whatever most dissuades the behavior.
mircea_popescu: mod6 that's fine and dandy, but look how the logic works : 1) the republic exists principally as a succession of schelling points, meaning that "given a situation of structure X, republican will land on selection y" ; 2) the impression is hard to shake that with ~extreme regularity~ your landing diverges from that y, and in specific ways. which leads to 3) somehow mod6 ended up mentally at odds with the fundamentals of tmsr,
mircea_popescu: which then leads to the suspicion that 4) regular dosing with idiocy through direct exposure in his daily life is poisoning mod6.
mod6: I didn't think that was the case! I thought I was being quite logical, tbh.
mod6: Anyway, I know I've fallen out of favor with many, for apparent idiocy.
mod6: Like I said, Mr. P. I'll be stepping away. I only remain just to answer ben_vulpes's questions.
mircea_popescu: no, i know, that's the problem. you thought you were being logical, and the logical thread you were following went along the lines of...
mod6: I didn't mean any offense by the thread, I hope you and trinque will forgive.
mircea_popescu: nobody's offended, man. we're concerned, because you seem to have contracted earworm.
trinque: yeah, I'm not looking for an emotional connection here when I'm talking to you.
trinque: you responded to 0% of the substance of what I said, and came back with "sorry you don't like me". come on, give it some effort!
mod6: Maybe being around here so long has blurred the lines for me, I consider you guys my friends.
mod6: Perhaps, a mistake.
trinque: I don't see how I'm not being a friend, if you like.
mod6: Well, to your point of "emotional".
mod6: And to the 0% part, I just responded "Cool." because you reminded me of what was right and proper.
mod6: I have no real argument with your wanting to stay out of any type of arguments, or discuss anyones deedbot tx's. Which, is the rightful thing to do.
mod6: Basically, if someone says, "mod6 is liar!", and I publish my deedbot ledger, well, then it stands alone. To be evaluated at face value.
mod6: Thanks for the wake-up call.
mod6 will bbl to answer q's if required.
trinque: taking it the other way, now there's this process where trinque swears to whoever's ledger that asks (fee or not, doesn't matter here). this comes to signify something, trustworthiness, w/e., can go to wells fargo now and bring in this credit report to get a mortgage. now folks come churn deedbot to produce this empty signifier. later trinque is asked to you know, DETECT FRAUD, maybe with machine learning
trinque: if you don't see how this leads straight to the contemporary hell, you do need to take that vacation.
mod6: I see your point totally.
mod6: Alright. bbl.
mircea_popescu: hey, we went through a week or so of nubbins going "mp is a liar!!!", did exactly jack.
mod6: Ah, I recall.
mod6: You know, I just went for a quick walk, and the cold air did me some good. I think maybe part of my problem is that the stress from being in the soup for the better part of a year has been a bit rough on me mentally. Been saying idiotic things without thinking, pasting shit without thinking, etc. I dunno feels like a bit of sand-falling through my hands - trying to get back into the good graces without ta
mod6: king the explicit time to get my head screwed back on straight.
mircea_popescu: well so take it easy.
mod6: I do appreciate the wake up call, and I take your words to hard. I'll do better to take a long rest/break and stop spinning my damn brain so hard.
mod6: *nod* alright, I gotta run here for a bit. but will bbl. <3

mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo not bad, though i prefer the fully formatted style, with dates etc, like in http://trilema.com/category/bitcoin/ or http://trilema.com/2017/06/ etc.
