asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: it's what bellard was doing instead of tcc.
mircea_popescu: right. but -- and this is the truly painful part -- for a ~defensible~ reason. he was doing it instead of tcc ~for rms's failure to rule~.
asciilifeform: lol, even boots, but then 'Emulation aborted due to nested emulation timeout.'
asciilifeform: iirc there was a site that had this js dosbox thing, for old games, some even ran. (it's no way to live, imho, tho)
mircea_popescu: certainly not. yet -- it makes a point, specifically that the whole "natura expellas" is a problem not so much of nature but rather of the nature of the expeller.
asciilifeform: lazy expeller, blunt furca, or both
mircea_popescu: note how "nature" aka shit fails to "make its way through the window" and still nevertheless give the woman peripueral fever even if you ~properly~ wash your hands.
mircea_popescu: in short, there's a kind of "technology" that produces recursively these sorts of nooks and crannies for "nature, by itself" to return
asciilifeform sorta has entire www on this subj
mircea_popescu: whereas there's also a proper technology, which does not.

asciilifeform: can grind off micron at a time.

asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: is certainly how i started reading him (initially had good stuff in 'small picture' re su/usa parallel)
mircea_popescu: "Tom either graduated or dropped out from an art school (accounts varied) and could turn out competent artwork if given careful direction, but he disliked being told what to do. Left to his own devices, he indulged in drawing cartoons that featured grotesque caricatures of himself plodding through post-apocalyptic landscapes littered with wrecks of his old cars and wandering shadows of his former girlfriends."
