phf: asciilifeform: i'm pretty sure he doesn't have PAL sources in digital form, and if he does, i think it's purely accidental i.e. there are source files on some tape or some drive, but i don't think he'll be able to find them from memory
phf: there are 3600 era PAL sources in a form of scans, there might be some overlap between those and ivory. i doubt that's the case, but it's worth investigating

asciilifeform: iirc mircea_popescu had a piece re macroscale version of cellular apoptosis.
mircea_popescu: and, while at it : the aferations of "metaphysics", specifically regarding the matter in terms of "oh, mp is so lost in the world he can't see the things beyond the world" is so much infantile aferant bullshit. be it "robo-hitlers" or "gods" or whatever other nonsense, the important property of things "beyond" the world and "above" the world and "after" the world and "ultimate" and so on is that they are not.
mircea_popescu: there's nothing BEYOND the world. the things claimed to be so are always and without exception ~inferior~ not superior in the tree of things. one's fantasies of self-realisation, be they wet dreams about little miss rottencrotch two chairs down in chem class or "the rapture", are just so much teenage wank. it dun matter if the teenager's name is moses or daniel, their wank is not "above the world". it's part of the world, and
mircea_popescu: a minor and neglectable part at that.
mircea_popescu: obviously the (male) teenager's temptation is to imagine his stupid shit is "above". but this is his problem, not his "intuition" or "wisdom" or w/e the fuck.
mircea_popescu: god is ~just another trope~. like "the voyage", like "the teenage witch", like "vampires" or "magic horses" or "the island of buyan", god is just another trope. tropes are common places of fiction. fiction is a product of imagination. imagination is mildly-restrained psychogenic noise, which is a class of noise, like wetware thought or like fg output. which are phenomena, which is one half of the world (the other half being o
mircea_popescu: that's 1 trope, 2 fiction, 3 imagination, 4 noise, 5 phenomena. FIVE nodes down from the top node of all things, "the world".
asciilifeform: the logical result of trying to physically move into a fictional palace is terry davis's train ride.
mircea_popescu: and it so happens that god wank scores right there with "commercial communication" aka spam (another trope of fiction) on the scale of republican appreciation of fiction.

mircea_popescu: and let it be said, translating the torah ~in english~ was a fucking stupid idea. english is not a language that can ~carry~ such things.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: you should see the jp bible some time.
mircea_popescu: all the pretense of imperial brits aside, trying to build themselves an alt-english out of hammer-whacked chunks of latin and greek. because guess what, nobody today speaks 1770-level cultivated english. and certainly nobody among the self-help ikea-brand of "preachers" in the intellectually arid center of our colonies in the new world.
asciilifeform: ( the jesuits baked. and it's a riot. when jp was pried open in 19th c, the euros found some 'christians', promptly barfed -- the cleanup job shogunate did wasn't quite 100%.)

mircea_popescu: asciilifeform moreover it makes a fucking difference WHO speaks english. which is a readily lost point. there's an episode in seinfeld (when george converts to "latvian" orthodoxy) including a soundbyte from old jewish woman with strong yidish accent, "when you die, you die. you don't go anywhere."
mircea_popescu: THAT half liner summarizes ~correctly~ the whole fucking nine paragraph thing i ended up stuck putting in above.
mircea_popescu: and it ~is~ in english. but it is not the english of Jamie McMoron, slightly overweight ex-mechanic turned "pastor" in Michigan.
mircea_popescu: because that's the fucking problem with english, it can not ~carry~. human languages have this property, that they retain in their own thick fibers, particles of the wisdom of speakers, to bestow them on the dumb neat round heads of repeaters.
mircea_popescu: english is ~thin~. it retain nothing. moron can say same words and gain ~nothing~ thereby.
asciilifeform: ... and particles of stupid
mircea_popescu: certainly. which is why selection is important and meaningful. in latin. not so in english.

mircea_popescu: so here it is instead :
mircea_popescu: > -- Find the position of eldest nonzero bit, if any exist
mircea_popescu: Fwiw, this is incorrect. 0 ~is~ the postion of the eldest 1 if "none exist", and the comment correctly reads "Find the position of eldest nonzero bit."
mircea_popescu: > Index := W_Mux(Index + 1, Index, W_ZeroP(W));
mircea_popescu: Wouldn't it be (very marginally) cheaper to simply do what you did before, ie Index := W_Mux(b, Index, W_ZeroP(W)); ?

danielpbarron: that's what i said, remove it from the feed in here. i'm not arguing to keep it showing up where it isn't wanted
mircea_popescu: otherwise what is this, meet the rich girls at yoga class two hours a week and then daydream those two hours on repead all the rest of the time you spend in the rv with the pothead and the empty takeout containers ?
mircea_popescu: i'm not even saying you're arguing ; i'm trying to point out something to you maybe who knows, it sparks teh understanding.
mircea_popescu: why is it that this church is notable in spite of not having a feedbot ?
mircea_popescu: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-12-18#1881495 << in the end, this is how (and why) republics die. the sort of folk who are actually willing to do the correct thing (ie, http://btcbase.org/log/2018-12-12#1880344 ) are generally doing it from the outside, rather than from the inside.

mircea_popescu: asciilifeform wants to hire BingoBoingo to do it ; BingoBoingo is looking around for "awk experts" to do it. meanwhile, danielpbarron is out there doing it.
mircea_popescu: entirely fucking wrongly, trying to get sane people to be stupid, rather than trying to get stupid people to be sane. and as he says -- rarely, but it works.
mircea_popescu: over however many years, rarely but it works here and there, and soon enough you wonder where the great went and why does it have to be agained.
mircea_popescu: well, whoopdeedoo... if instead of letting the ants eat your dumb asses you ate the ants, it'd be the other way. and until it isn't the other way, it'll keep being this way, grand discovery this.
asciilifeform: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-12-18#1881512 << the algo's correct tho. (just nao walked it again on chalkboard)
a111: Logged on 2018-12-18 19:25 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i kinda went away with the same suspicion.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform yeah, can't say i found anything.
asciilifeform: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-12-18#1881525 << dun think that asciilifeform's loaded; he had small bit of dough specifically set aside for 'if bolix appears!'
a111: Logged on 2018-12-18 19:50 mircea_popescu: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-12-18#1881357 << you know, it occurs to me that for someone who was http://btcbase.org/log/2018-05-22#1816553 taped out, you got a lot of moolah to imperially throw about, stripper parties with special-ordered cross-coast stripper, whatnot.
asciilifeform contrary, perhaps, to appearances, does plan things, has a semblance of organization
asciilifeform: speaking of this, phf earlier today i got those pics, and then peeled with knife the PAL,GAL labels and write what was under
asciilifeform: when i get around to pumping'em out of the cam, will post
asciilifeform: turns out there's even an early fpga in'ere, approx same density as the one in FG. ( but good noose is, it handles the crapple bus)
mircea_popescu: "As far as I know, the proof in this article is the only public one which completely treats a constant-time implementation of Barretts Reduction." << check him out.
asciilifeform: it's not a lie tho
asciilifeform: i dunno of any other
mircea_popescu: ok, so the idea is to cap his error equation, and then iterate by the cap, and that's home.
mircea_popescu: this is a good idea.
mircea_popescu: it's not even clever, it's the necessary and evident approach. which yes, is better than clever.
asciilifeform: if mircea_popescu or anybody else finds a 'clever' in ffa, plox to ping asciilifeform asap so it can be burned out with hot irons.
mircea_popescu: well, barrett to begin with :)
mircea_popescu: karatsuba also.
asciilifeform: barrett is 'optional' (technically errything after ch6 is!)
mircea_popescu: but nothingwrongwiththis.
asciilifeform: in exact same sense.
asciilifeform: 1-6 is 'what if 0 clever'
asciilifeform: i can actually think of applications where you'd want 100% egypt.
asciilifeform: ( commands for space probe? )
mircea_popescu: ima re-read this again later.
asciilifeform: it never hurts.
asciilifeform: phf: i fear that it'll take an entire weekend to go through the pics ( plux i wanna redo whole thing with a tripod and macro lens, and the latter i gotta find ) , but to whet appetite, have a http://www.loper-os.org/pub/bolix/bolix_peek.jpg
asciilifeform: and before anybody asks, yes the box still worked on reassembly.
asciilifeform: ( and yes got bottom side pic and close-ups etc. there are no components on side2, only trax )
mircea_popescu: fox korea... dude such 80s
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: there's a reason i wrote the thing that way, with 'what's the minimum for rsa modexp without ANY accelerations', and only then with
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: this particular item is stamped '91. ver. 1 came out in '86.
asciilifeform: 'rev.d. ser. num 433'
asciilifeform: the object on bottom of photo is the ram brd
asciilifeform: ( 74f1762a is a dram refreshtron , gives sram-like interface on 1 side )
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: became 'foxconn' iirc
asciilifeform: y'know, the folx who make crapples
mircea_popescu: nah, diff guys.
mircea_popescu: mostly make oscillators / freq caps
asciilifeform: yeah possib
asciilifeform: it is interesting that literally errything, other than the filter caps and the drams, is socketed.
asciilifeform: ( the column of 'toshiba' is sram )
asciilifeform: items with stickers, and a few without (engraved, clearly burned at factory rather than by hand) , are PAL/GAL
asciilifeform: all of'em have inscriptions of the form DDDDDD-A/B, aside from the fpga (has just the #), and the serialnum chip (cypress, and i'ma post full output from the knife+notebook when i post whole orchestra)
asciilifeform: observe also the apparently-inevitable, in '80s iron, blue 'bodge' wires !
asciilifeform: they happened , i suppose, when engineer 'oops'. i've found'em even in 486.
asciilifeform: ( at today's clocks, if you 'oops' the pcb you gotta throw it out and cut off some heads )
asciilifeform: the empty seats inscribed 'spare' also interesting, and reminiscent of ye olde ibm pc with 'hey, some drams rotten, we'll sit new ones on top'
asciilifeform: there are bypass caps apparently hand-soldered to socketed (!) PALs, too, will make pulling'em a bitch
asciilifeform: stickers looked virginal prior to today's defloration, so i suspect that this particular specimen has not been on vivisection table prior.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-12-18#1881556 << there may be a way to use the floor(2^k / M) ~quotient~ to determine the E . but i'ma leave this alone until end of series, it won't make a superlinear diff in the runtime

asciilifeform: in other noose, http://www.loper-os.org/?p=2857&cpage=1#comment-19764 << not earth-shaking but proves that the comment box does work..
asciilifeform: phf: http://www.loper-os.org/pub/bolix/bolix_peek_back.jpg , goes with the earlier
asciilifeform: and before anyone asks, no i have nfi what bolix (or the ravages of time...) did to that solder mask to make the tracks look like dash
asciilifeform: oh holyfuq
asciilifeform: i suspect that the greens are ~pain~
asciilifeform: and dun actually need xray, doh
asciilifeform: they're copies from side a
asciilifeform: i'ma put this thing on a flatbed this weekend and get a 2000dpi shot of that arse
asciilifeform: this thing was quite evidently built to be repairable, by dks et al.
asciilifeform: i suspect it'll still need xray, that green quite definitely dun acct for all the pins
asciilifeform: but will make the pcb rev job slightly less of a bitch.
BingoBoingo: Very interesting and 1980's of them
asciilifeform: pcb is 1% of the headache, tops. 99% is the PALs.
asciilifeform: and that actel, it's a 1200 gate antifuse fpga (well, without the 'f', lol), turns out.
BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> well, whoopdeedoo... if instead of letting the ants eat your dumb asses you ate the ants, it'd be the other way. and until it isn't the other way, it'll keep being this way, grand discovery this. << This is. I'm setting up mp-wp for a lead danielpbarron directed to us.
asciilifeform: some good ~spywork~ would cut the headache down 9000x. but asciilifeform is apparently not very good at this.
asciilifeform: so far i can't even seem to convince phf to post that magic doc.
asciilifeform: phf srsly what gives ? wai not just post the uncensored dump. dks certainly aint coming to moscow to shit in your air conditioner.
asciilifeform: phf: or gpggram to asciilifeform whole thing, and i'ma post with black flag proudly flying.
BingoBoingo: And it isn't like the Republic lacks people who could conveniently shit in his air conditioner
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: the correct vent to shit in is that mallery d00d's
asciilifeform: dks is the latter's slave
asciilifeform: !#s mallery
asciilifeform: ^ see also.
BingoBoingo: And where is his doorknob?
asciilifeform: somewhere in those godforsaken lands presumably. derping on re 'cyber arms control' and other usgisms.
asciilifeform: 'Internet Governance & Cyber Conflicts: Models ...' << lol
BingoBoingo: Ughhh, ustardism. Apparently I have been spoiled by a country where it is less challenging for me to piss on former and sitting president's doorknobs than it is for them to piss on mine.
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: d00d is by all appearances a veritable platinum standard of ustardism. the sheer pseudointellectual garbage he spews on his podium, defies description
asciilifeform: my current model is that 'hitler' put him in charge of the bottled remains of bolix for the elementary http://btcbase.org/log/2015-06-10#1158785 reason.
a111: Logged on 2015-06-10 03:40 asciilifeform: 'watchman may not know what is behind the door he is guarding; if he knew - would steal it himself' (tm) (r) (sov army)
asciilifeform: his immediate predecessor as 'guard' was a nobody called andrew topping, by all surviving accounts a sort of craig wright figure
asciilifeform: ( iirc mallery 'bought' the 'properties' for an amt that does not by many zeroes exceed what asciilifeform bought the 1 box for . entirely a http://btcbase.org/log/2018-07-05#1831755 scenario, near as i can tell. )
a111: Logged on 2018-07-05 16:22 mircea_popescu: very much in the vein of http://btcbase.org/log/2014-08-14#795515 : NONE, and i mean it : not a single FUCKING ONE of these "government-sponsored oligarchs" have a penny to their name. every single one "powerful" of the democracy-socialism, be they a senator, a general, a "famous person", a "journalist", WHATHEVER they may be, made out, at all. not like bandits, not like anythings, they're as poor as church mice.
asciilifeform: usg used a fleet of bolix boxen for gulf war I logistics, and fuck knows what else, so in some dusty beetleman's desk it is 'coloured' as 'strategic', and so it gets passed from mallery to mallery.
asciilifeform: omfg, ohnoez, soviets will copy!1111
asciilifeform: as recently as 2010, that logistics thing was still in biz and running bolixen (iirc 'xl' variant), dks admitted.
asciilifeform: passed, thirdhand, 'the brass erru year want to close it down but the greybeard defends, 'these are the only machines that never once crashed' '
asciilifeform: i'd be at least mildly surprised if i learned today that the place hasn't yet been bulldozed and converted to microshit; but all kindsa miracles are possible, e.g. usg rocket command still runs on 100% dec vax and no plans to stop 'till 2050' Officially
mircea_popescu: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-12-18#1881607 << kinda how it went then neh. hence the fixing wiring etc.

mircea_popescu: https://cis-india.org/internet-governance/issues-in-internet-governance << indian top keks, their early reconnaissance teams found out how to eat the ustard sandwich, and there they crowd.
mircea_popescu: but anyway, we briefly lulzed at some similar moron, had something about how "us still matters in air notwithstanding russia long owned its dumb ass". predictably, "because hurr".
mircea_popescu: can't be arsed to dig him up. usual squarejaw moron.
asciilifeform: large lulz collection in my journals from mallery, e.g. http://btcbase.org/log/2018-01-17#1772126
a111: Logged on 2018-01-17 21:42 asciilifeform: 'John Mallery @jcmallery_cyber 25 Dec 2017 Declinism is a psyop of adversaries...it was spread before during the Vietnam war.' << ahahahaha gold
mircea_popescu: anyway, they can talk till they drop. the republic owns the internet like it owns everything else that exists, and the entire space of the ~possibility~ of expression.
asciilifeform: enforcing 'i own the house' on the cockroaches in the kitchen, still takes work
mircea_popescu: anyway, in passing, here's the lulziest "vulnerability" of the whole edifice : for some reason ustards decided that "inconsequentialism" is the golden key to victory, and therefore a) divorcing their thought process from any contemplation of the consequence of their actions and b) inducing everyone else to preoccupy themselves with "consequences" is the path to victory.
asciilifeform: 'strategy' inherited from brit empire.
mircea_popescu: as a ~result~ of this idocy, the pellet of lost dollars in iraq, and the incapacity to produce a budget, and all the http://qntra.net/2018/12/fbi-entraps-young-woman-into-terrorism-charges-by-becoming-her-entire-social-circle/ wank and so on.
mircea_popescu: how exactly they imagine the dumb & deaf can win anything is anyone's guess, but there they go.
asciilifeform: their Official ideology, near as i can tell, is 'budgets are for the lesser mortals who can't print green'
mircea_popescu: right ? all converges to the same idiocy, namely "mp doesn't seem to need to be concerned with consequences and so the path to be him is, you know, douchebaggin' it"
mircea_popescu: this works as well as you expect, but w/e.
mircea_popescu: i suppose it's a rake particularly fit for the exact shape of their face, because the principal mental issue of anglotards is their overwhelming anxiety.
asciilifeform: the algo dun eggog until brezhn^H^H^Hobummer orders a pallet of abrams armor and it dun show up.
mircea_popescu: still, the ~reason~ anyone even maintains a general staff, as opposed to "shoulda killed them all, like stalin", is precisely that left to their own devices, tacticians find the rakes shaped like their face.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform best i can tell a) this happened under nigglet's reign and b) whole "great again" algo consists of "find me those orders we can still execute, and limit ordering to that".
mircea_popescu: which... sure.
asciilifeform: while that set is close enuff to the min reqd to keep 'biz as usual' humming, on it goes
mircea_popescu: well... smartphones are cheap, and fast food ever shittier.
mircea_popescu: but hey. soviets didn't give up in 1981.
mircea_popescu: entire pantsuit rage @trump can be readily decoded in terms of "how dare you consider consequences".
mircea_popescu: and to go back to the "thin english" thread : somehow it never occured to them the ~proper name~ for their ideology is "inconsequentialism". because english doesn't force such, which is why and how it's entirely inadherent to humour (in the odessa sense of term).
mircea_popescu: if it had, they might've noticed what the ~necessary correlate~ is. how's one to be inconsequential and important ?
asciilifeform: 'it worx until you try to use it'
mircea_popescu: there, took me five minutes typing and half a second's thought to demolish the intellectual produce of centcom since 2001.
mircea_popescu: such leverage.
mircea_popescu: "cyber threats" right. not this. something else.
mircea_popescu: what the fuck else is there ?
asciilifeform: 'cyber threats' is, a la prb, smoke grenade to obscure the actual ur-'cyberthreat' to reich, i.e. comp stack sans usg
asciilifeform: the 'thinking' goes, 'if we derp from podium 24/7/365 re how 'security' means microshit-cum-latest-servicepack, erryone will believe' , or somesuch
