spyked: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-11-26#1874742 <-- oops, apologies for the trouble. this makes perfect sense, my initial impression was that trinque was eager to get rid of the rss piece in deedbot, but some sort of transition seems reasonable.
a111: Logged on 2018-11-26 16:54 mircea_popescu: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-11-26#1874708 << lmao this is a little brusque isn't it. suppose you disable it in this feedbot thing we now see for the first time. let it do pm only, work out a roadmap to switch over with trinque that consists of something else than straight bombardment, and THEN.
spyked: trinque, mircea_popescu: one thing I could do is have it deliver a small number of feeds (e.g. thetarpit, since that's under my control anyway) and have it subscribed to the others whenever you feel like. for now, all delivery to #trilema is disabled (and I'll bring the bot back on mircea_popescu's sign).
spyked: ftr, feedbot also sends republican rss in castle #spyked, for potentially interested testers.
trinque: spyked: point is a simple "hey trinque, lets make the swap at $date, and get the PM subscriptions ported over meanwhile"
trinque: you know, talking to people, not being radio dark for months, that sort of thing.

asciilifeform: oh hey
asciilifeform: trinque: i'ma test-fire in the next coupla days
asciilifeform: trinque: how come 'two GCC versions to step through before arriving at 4.9.4' ?
asciilifeform: ( i thought plan was to roll in ave1's gcc ? )
trinque: asciilifeform: we had a thread on the stepping down before, jumping directly to 4.9.4 does not work on musl. not a clue why.
asciilifeform: i dun recall whether anybody's tried building straight with ave1's
trinque: and the plan is indeed to get ave1's in, and I invite him to write the ebuild. the point of what I released is to preserve the found item, can now start changing it
asciilifeform: makes sense
asciilifeform: will also be interesting to see if trb can sit down on trinque's libressl thing, instead of the frozen ancient openssl it currently goes with
trinque: long term the "bootstrap.sh" will be converted to an installer which presumes an existing working cuntoo, and that installer will come as an ebuild vpatch atop genesis
trinque: asciilifeform: right, that's one reason for keeping an ssltron for now
asciilifeform: ( given a musltronic cuntoo, the 'rotor'-descended buildroot process for trb is theoretically redundant )
asciilifeform: eventual convergence of ye olde 'emerge' and hypothetical 'vmerge', also of interest.
trinque: yep, and ebuild tree and src tree really have no business being separate, aside from preserving the imperial "there is a package repository for all-of-us"
phf: i have a poc, that uses vpy as an alternative to EGIT_REPO_URI. you put all of the vpatches and sigs into /usr/portage/distfiles/vpatches and you have your wot in /etc/wot and you say V_HEAD='foobar' and it attempts to press whatever's in distfiles to the corresponding head, and then use it as a build target. it works, but i'm not sure that's the right direction..
trinque: phf: sounds awesome, would like to eyeball it
trinque: emerge's last act oughta be its own brain transplant.
trinque afk for a while
phf: i also have another approach, with V_PATCHES=[('http://.../foo.vpatch', 'http://.../foo.vpatch.first.sig', 'http://.../foo.vpatch.another.sig'),...] where ebuild basically keeps explicit press order, but can also rely on emerge for pulling the files from remote. none of it is particularly satisfying
phf: trinque: i'll pull it out, right after my move. flight's only few days away, and i'm only half way through gutting the apartment.
a111: Logged on 2018-11-26 02:46 asciilifeform: !Q later tell phf plox to snarf http://www.loper-os.org/?p=2822 into http://btcbase.org/patches?patchset=ffa , ty
phf: asciilifeform: done, can you please check that it's correct, i'm doing it from console only linux and my update function said it picked up a patch, that i thought was already there..
asciilifeform: phf: loox correct, to naked eye
asciilifeform: which patch did it say picked up, that was already there ?
phf: borrow expr, ah i see what happened you renamed it to .kv from diana_coman's original
asciilifeform: phf's mechanism did The Right Thing tho, a++, ty phf
asciilifeform: ( so long as the sigs validate and hashes line up, names are immaterial )
asciilifeform: meanwhile in heathen lulz: http://p.bvulpes.com/pastes/5wqxB/?raw=true << rathead, centos , debian, privesc
asciilifeform: phf: imho the correct thing to do, if you have 2 bitwise-identical patches , is to display only 1 ( i'd prefer it be the one using my naming scheme, given as it is my proj, but i also won't cry if it's the other ) -- and the sigs that match it
phf: asciilifeform: i ended up dumping one of them since they are bitwise identical
phf: i'm not particularly keen on the whole archivist aspect of it, these are curated live artifacts, no need to be too pedantic with them
asciilifeform: ftr asciilifeform is very very fond of phf's http://btcbase.org/patches , refers to it several times just about erry day
asciilifeform: it is unspeakably helpful.
phf: it has a backlog of love also, one thing that i want to wire next is a search for a keyword, gives back a list of patches of a list of files that match. i implemented it already, but haven't wired it in
asciilifeform intended to release a thing somewhat like it with the orig 2015 vtron, but asciilifeform's wwwtronics was not equal to the task, never made a usable incarnation of item
asciilifeform: i was aiming for a kind of hybrid of jurov's http://btc.yt/lxr/satoshi/source/?v=makefiles and what phf has today
asciilifeform: so i ended up getting hung up on the coad-eating logics
phf: yeah and btcbase is not there yet
asciilifeform: still mighty useful. ( presently i'm continuing with the http://www.loper-os.org/pub/ffa/hypertext/ch13/ffa_calc__adb.htm thing, to fill that niche )
asciilifeform: gnathtml has some pretty serious missing parts tho, mainly that it is impossible to link to individual lines of proggy unless they contain concordance'd symbols
asciilifeform: it also mysteriously fails to concord the occasional symbol
asciilifeform: ( e.g. in above example -- FFA_FZ_Get_Head is not linkable, and several hrs of dig failed to tell me why )
asciilifeform: ( it is certainly indexed in the place where it lives -- http://www.loper-os.org/pub/ffa/hypertext/ch13/fz_basic__adb.htm#72_13 -- but for some reason not in ffa_calc__adb... )
asciilifeform: i presently suspect that this is because gnathtml uses gcc's AST for the input data, rather than the raw proggy text
asciilifeform: and so inlined routines occasionally end up invisible to it
asciilifeform: thing still displays entire coadbase, so i'd still much rather have it, than nuffin at all. but it is frustrating.
BingoBoingo: <asciilifeform> will also be interesting to see if trb can sit down on trinque's libressl thing, instead of the frozen ancient openssl it currently goes with << I run a bitcoind linked against libressl 2.5.5 and so far it hasn't forked
asciilifeform nearly said ' 'so far hasn't forked' aint exactly a scientific standard ' but we aint got a better
asciilifeform: trinque: now that i think about it -- what was the logic for including the alt-ssl in cuntoo, vs trb's frozen thing ?
asciilifeform: ( i dun have any notion that one is 'better' than the other, in either direction, but imho the matter deserves discussion )
asciilifeform: for that matter, why does cuntoo need to include own sslism, afaik the only proggy that hard-depends on having one is trb
trinque: libressl is being decrufted by the openbsd folks, result of which is that several pretty nasty bugs in openssl didn't affect libressl since they forked it. I can't vouch for the work, and it's certainly up for debate.
phf: asciilifeform: presumably entire portage tree pulls from https:// unless trinque also hosting a mirror of everything (i haven't looked yet)
trinque: much as the openbsd folks shoot themselves in the foot politically, I don't know that I trust them less than w/e derps contribute to openssl
asciilifeform: if said bugs affect trb logic, than it oughta be in trb asap ; if they do not, then not clear to me why better
asciilifeform: phf: iirc trinque removed all network-dependency
trinque: you can build this thing without nic turned on
mircea_popescu: !#s openbsd
mircea_popescu: what did they do now ?
trinque: I've been building with unshare -n , uses the linux namespaces thing to detach the process from the network stack (fig leaf yes, but at least was a decent way to test)
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: afaik they've done ~nuffin in years, we're discussing an archaeological artifact
phf: trinque: how does that work with genesis, is it some other mechanism than having all the files in /distfiles? (i'm curious, but i don't have time to investigate)
mircea_popescu: was fishing for the "shot in the foot" reference.
mircea_popescu: but yes, done ~nothing for like a decade. still, http://btcbase.org/log/2018-06-29#1830623

mircea_popescu: trinque wasn't that de raadt ?
asciilifeform: near as i can tell, de raadt pupated into his mushroom form ( like rms ) yrs ago
asciilifeform: dun talk, as such, no moar, sits in a flower pot, 'talkers' do the talkin' 'for him'
mircea_popescu: anyway, i suppose this is the issue, i had mental image similar to what asciilifeform discusses, "openbsd the ancient artefact" ; was discussion more about usg.openbsd replacement in recent years ?
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: there's an 'openbsd-branded' item, 'libressl', quite similar to the hairball carried along in trb but weighing slightly less
mircea_popescu: i mean... http://btcbase.org/log/2017-09-29#1718269 will work just fine without the current usg muppet.
a111: Logged on 2017-09-29 16:34 mircea_popescu: trinque except you gotta maintain openbsd now.
asciilifeform: it is currently in the beta cuntoo
trinque: mircea_popescu: thought there was some kind of "we don't want your money" instance, but now don't recall details
trinque: the openbsd folks took openssl and forked it, does not need openbsd to build
trinque: it's just a thinned out openssl.
trinque: if we're taking one, I think it's a candidate for taking.
asciilifeform: ( ideally we'd simply keep the logic demanded by trb and burn the rest. but dunno that anyone has the free hands for this presently )
trinque: correct, that'd be the next step
mircea_popescu: trinque in summary, the thing flew as such : 1. de raadt announced "openbsd dead as going concern without like 20k" ; 2. nobody cared ; 3. somebody brought it here ; 4. i paid his 20k ; 5. complex face-saving dance of usg commenced, very much blueprint for all later http://btcbase.org/log/2018-11-26#1874881 ; 6. i told them exactly how unimpressed i am. which i still am.

asciilifeform: what's he even got remaining to donate.
diana_coman: trinque, that looks great; if I understand correctly, the archive there contains the means to a. install cuntoo b. make the genesis of cuntoo/portage that could in principle be used to move an existing gentoo to cuntoo; is this correct?
phf: asciilifeform: he "won" the suite, presumably spent fortune on lawyers, but donated immediately after.
trinque: diana_coman: it produces the genesis.vpatch that represents the state of the bootstrapped system. porting an existing gentoo over has additional complications. in theory you could yes, introduce what's in /cuntoo/ to an existing machine, but I think this deserves its own guide.
trinque: if you're feeling adventurous, read the bootstrap scripts and it should indicate what'd need to happen to convert a living system, but I had the thing generate a new bootable blockdev because of these hairy complications

mircea_popescu: i suppose the using of the weird directory structure's an eyesore, but whatever, can be fixed later.
diana_coman: asciilifeform, no; possibly having started with Pascal in highschool & the "one programming language per week" crazy uni year of choice -> "stronger stomach", if anything
asciilifeform: diana_coman: funnily enuff, i also pascal in school
asciilifeform: it used to be common
phf: mircea_popescu: my impression is that trinque has some kind of mechanism of inlining source code into cuntoo, so instead of it being a matrioshka doll of nested vpatches, any new vpatch to cuntoo brings in ebuild AND the already unpacked source code. my approach keeps the vpatches separate from cuntoo: you install cuntoo first, then pull vpatches separately. i haven't looked at cuntoo yet, so i'm not sure how he's doing it though
asciilifeform still has buncha rubbish written for borland tp7 somewhere on tape
phf: actually i'm not sure what i just said made any kind of sense. i need to look at cuntoo first, and then reassess what i'm trying to say.
mircea_popescu: it doesn't. so yeah.
asciilifeform: diana_coman: funnily enuff we also had here '1 lang/week' curriculum. tho i did learn that many yrs ago it was abolished at asciilifeform's sad old uni, in favour of iphonism etc
phf: ftr i had no objections to ada either, i suspect the barfs were coming from peanut gallery of people who since dropped off
asciilifeform: diana_coman: when i went , all the good profs were already grey and weary, so not particularly surprising, i expect they died
asciilifeform: phf: good % of the barf was actually my own, thing struck me as gnarly and with all the wrongest kinds of pedigree initially
asciilifeform: i wasn't even immediately aware that gnat existed, thought that one had to get some TB-sized winliquishit from lockheed etc in order to ada.
asciilifeform: ( these --- do apparently exist! tho i presently have nfi who uses'em, and for what )
asciilifeform: esp. given that gnat, like other gcc, builds for winblowz just fine if one insists.
mircea_popescu: it did look poorly born, at that.
asciilifeform in old salt mines built winblowz, incl. w7, device drivers, with stock gcc, worked just fine, merely had to reproduce the header liquishit
asciilifeform: *for winblowz
mircea_popescu: a bit like ye olde "reproduce yahoo messenger login" exercise huh.

asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: vtron (including phf's , and in fact his esp. well) solves.
asciilifeform: and ftr naming convention ( carried on since asciilifeform's original vtron ) is simply that patch is $string.vpatch and sig is $string.vpatch.author.sig .
asciilifeform: nuffing asciilifeform's done, breaks this.
mircea_popescu: there's somewhere i explain the problem with small children, that they take a look at world around them, which creates a snapshot in their mind that's static, and then they fall over because they don't natively understand that just because the fulcrum's left side is up like the chair next to it is up, nevertheless, the load bearing capacity of the fulcrum is less than a percent of the chairs'.
mircea_popescu: you're putting load on the wrong things.
asciilifeform: correct vtron duncare whether $string contains .
mircea_popescu: but you'd prefer.
asciilifeform: ( phf's , mine, mod6's -- demonstrated correct )
mircea_popescu: and your preference is not groundless, and soon enough we'll be left with a messy patchwork of nonsense.
asciilifeform: i prefer to be able to name files on own hdd with arbitrary names , so long as it dun break anyffing. and it doesn;t.
asciilifeform: imho there is not an open problem there.
mircea_popescu: i suppose in the end we can't end up worse off than with hashes or something.
asciilifeform: we're already signing the hashes.
mircea_popescu: i meant for names.
asciilifeform: ( gpg dun look at file names for anyffing )

mircea_popescu: prolly not.
asciilifeform: typically 'rezistenta prin cultura' before it even hits forebrain
mircea_popescu: whatever, ima go have profiterols and lol at teh issues.
asciilifeform: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-11-27#1875589 << ftr this is only marginally less troo of man than of cow ( unprepped hand & room is much closer to freshly-shat arse , bacteriologically, than to proper operating theatre )
a111: Logged on 2018-11-27 21:31 mircea_popescu: sort-of like if cows were surgeons. before cow even started building operating room, the dung-carried bacteria'd be everywhere. because expensive for cow to be surgeon, and cheap for e coli to move along with flying dung.
asciilifeform: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-11-27#1875596 << no heads. but, funnily enuff, recently asciilifeform read old treatise on harakiri, and apparently, sometimes , as 'sprezzatura', it was performed with wooden knife

mircea_popescu: so i got a bunch of danielpbarron pingbacks from like 2016 for some reason (beat that, rw mail services)! among which one for http://danielpbarron.com/2016/are-you-thankful/
danielpbarron: yeah i'm putting old stuff into my new setup finally
asciilifeform: lol possibly asciilifeform loses championship crown of 'whose www b0rked the longest'
danielpbarron: pingbacks never worked for me until i got on pizarro
mircea_popescu: danielpbarron i'll confess trying to follow the logic of your articles fails here. do you even want to be in the lordship then ?
mircea_popescu: but why ?
danielpbarron: bitcoin is still an interest of mine, and i enjoy the position. I'm very much invested in it between maintaining a node and my holdings in Eulora
asciilifeform: danielpbarron: are you still running FG dealership ?
mircea_popescu: but i mean... it's not "build on biblical principles". nor is it going to be.
danielpbarron: asciilifeform, yes
mircea_popescu: in fact, as the only sovereign, it is literally the superior node of god in general, and of any statement of divinity, whether it originates with some guy in rural oklahoma or rural canaan.
danielpbarron: it's not wrong for me to be involved, although it wouldn't be good for me to become a partner in business with people who don't believe
asciilifeform at one point tried to systematically fit in head danielpbarron's theology, but it appears to be at least as complicated as ffa; broke teeth
mircea_popescu: danielpbarron nevermind involved, that's not the topic. you say you want to be in the lordship, but that you disagree with the fundamental premises of the whole thing. well, how do you reconcile these ?
danielpbarron: if a requirement of being a lord is that i have to call tmsr the true and only god, then i do not want to be called one
mircea_popescu: i don't even know it's a requirement. for that matter, it's not clear how precisely the republic would even come to notice something as ridiculously trivial as whatever religious belief (unless i suppose you end up doing dumb shit "because of it", but even then, 0 difference between "religion" and "but then i got high" or w/e).
mircea_popescu: i'm rather curious what goes on in your own mind, which is why i said i don't follow the logic. "i wanna be in the lordship though i don't think the republic makes sense". well ?!
danielpbarron: well it doesn't make sense like any government doesn't make sense, but this is the best one I know of
mircea_popescu: so then the contention is essentially that your other religious notions are in the end irrelevant to you ?
mircea_popescu: sorta like "well, i should diet, in principle. meanwhile, this profiterol is the only dessert that doesn't suck, so give me another" ?
danielpbarron: i don't think it is wrong to be involved in this or any other government, in principle
asciilifeform remembers old su joak. orthodox j00 kid is going to town for 1st time. asks, 'rebbe, there are many temptations in the city, what should i avoid looking at' 'waddayamean' 'well, i heard there are chix' 'what of'em?' 'well, i hear there's them strippers... good jew should not look at strippers?' 'you can look at strippers' 'there are bare cunts! really, good jew can look at cunts?!' 'yes' 'so what ~shouldn't~ a good jew look at
mircea_popescu: danielpbarron you keep bringing it to this "involved". the discussion is not at the level of "being involved", as the lowest possible standard. the discussion is being part of the lordship, as the highest possible standard.
mircea_popescu: let's try different terminology : why would you want to be one of the dozen-or-so "apostles" of this pizzeria owner by the name melchisedec, if you believe the other jesus guy, in the trattoria down the street, is the true pastafarian in town ?!
mircea_popescu: not a matter of "well, when coming from out of town pizzeria is closer, whereas when going out of town trattoria is closer, so whatever, depending on how hungry i am i sit where it happens"
danielpbarron: i don't see the two being exclusive of each other. If you are saying that I don't do enough here, I can't disagree. But the reason for not doing enough isn't that I am morally opposed to it. If i'm to be removeed as lord it should be because I have been too lazy about it; not that it was in irreconcilable conflict with my religious beliefs
asciilifeform: danielpbarron: if it aint a mega-seekrit -- what is it that you do with most of yer time ?
danielpbarron: not a whole lot, shamefully
asciilifeform: dare i to ask how that worx ? what is it, ...eat mushroom and watch cartoons on ceiling?
asciilifeform: ...reddit ?
danielpbarron: something like that
asciilifeform: the good news is that it's curable
asciilifeform: ( but gotta want to be cured )
danielpbarron: i would like to be as productive in my free time as i used to be in my professional life
danielpbarron: i'm not a very good manager of myself
mircea_popescu: how do you even know what "the reason is" ?
danielpbarron: i know what is not the reason, beyond that perhaps i don't know
mircea_popescu: seems to me you've managed to work yourself into a hole.
mircea_popescu: different, i grant, from the usual "find some dependocunt to worship along with her spawn", but rather in coloring than substance.
trinque wonders where sloth figures into danielpbarron's inner emulated yahweh
danielpbarron: it's bad
mircea_popescu: i'm starting to see a pattern here. "republic is unbiblical but i wanna be in the lordship, sloth is bad but what i do is not much, etc". you know, the principal theory as to ~why~ the catholics go to hell is specifically the trade in "indulgences", which is to say, EXACTLY that procedure ?
mircea_popescu: there can be such a thing as a naive practicing catholic, you know. what one says isn't the be all end all.
danielpbarron: you're right, i need to do what i say
mircea_popescu: or stop saying things that can't be done. either because meaningless, self-contradictory, unimportant, whatever.
mircea_popescu: i never heard before of some guy who CAN live independently, moving to rural shithole to not be bothered, and then having ~same to show for a year of his life as mod6. at least that dood is holding down a job and a coupla kids meanwhile.
danielpbarron: i'm not going to give up hope
mircea_popescu: you do understand the part where most guys in the lordship would very much LIKE to be able to move to fucking stickville and just not have to deal with the whole pile of crap.
trinque: wanton use of the declarative cuts both ways. this internalized "because bible, full stop" can just as easily "because on my ass is what I do, full stop".
danielpbarron: mircea_popescu, yes
trinque: drug users (see: g_l) do this, go around declaring doctrines like lisplinux-chimera god and inventing pegleg rituals of devotion to her
asciilifeform: trinque: lulzily, i recently looked at the https://github.com/gabriel-laddel/masamune thing : lo and behold, 'Latest commit b7332fe on Apr 6, 2017' << prolly d00d is truly dead
trinque: kid was dead when his mother let the state give him amphetamines while his brain was developing.
asciilifeform: trinque: hrm, i thought he took it up as grown man
asciilifeform not expert on q of typical disease progression in subj
mircea_popescu: they do this "declare the few boys showing signs of not being femtarded sick ; and then treat them" .
trinque came up in a generation of kids given amphetamine salts for ^
asciilifeform: trinque: escaped ? or didja have to 'cold turkey' or wat
mircea_popescu: pretty sure parental connivance was still required.
trinque: dad thought these "doctors" were communist pussies, bless him
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform isn't it the height of cargo cultist idiocy, this "6 character commit ids" thing shithub does.
asciilifeform: 'child shrink' racket created, or so i hear, '9000' exciting new diseases
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: they're really e.g. https://github.com/gabriel-laddel/masamune/commit/b7332fe26e69ff4d60f075f3c21179cd1eae8bae , they do the kochtard 'short fp' thing in the ui
