a111: Logged on 2019-05-13 03:49 asciilifeform: arguably it comes down to a stupid choice of profession. the software pseudo-industry only really exists in the reich + its tendrils, afaik.
mp_en_viaje: anyway, it comes down to very entrenched management ineptitude. guy wants to do what he wants to do not what he must do, has complicated, patiently constructed over time (through selection, much like how species appear) list of explanations/justifications.
mp_en_viaje: this coupled with a very myopic perception of outside reality, whereby the closer inconveniences are always overcounted and structural problems systematically discounted yield a very stable situation : he sits in the worst part of the us, complains about it, and will sit there until the day he dies.
mp_en_viaje: consider for elucidation the model of an android, which for our didactic needs is a) very intelligent ; b) doesn't need to physically eat ; c) is required to appear to the common human as a common human.
mp_en_viaje: the process then becomes evident : c requires it to occasionally engage in the activity of eating, but the "whilst some have been driven by organisational necessity, for example, finite resources." problem, to quote the united knelliot, precludes buying kitchen equipment or raw materials.
mp_en_viaje: what's left is then going to the restaurant, which the android agrees to do ; but at every single juncture where an actual going to a restaurant could occur, the urgent disadvantage of immediate expenditure overwhelms the general principles flowing from c -- through an a-mediated process that slowly improves the quality of "arguments" brought over time under the selection pressure provided by a + whatever ourside source available.
mp_en_viaje: the net result is a "very intelligent' android that's obviously an android to ~everyone in the biz of spotting androids, but who otherwise claims to be hungry and making eternal plans to restaurant meals that ever justifiedly do not occur.
mp_en_viaje: in the end, it's an all-in bet on reich stability. like everyone else in there.
mp_en_viaje: from an engineering perspective, the strategy's "too tight", fails at what could be described as "useful waste". the sort of activity like going on an aimless walk, or talking to an unknown woman, or playing a few rounds of three card monte with some guy on the street.
mp_en_viaje: there's a very marked difference between the people who know it's a scam -- and therefore ~NEVER~ indulge and the people who know it's a scam and yet very occasionally indulge. the difference's the former are "well educated" engineers, whereas the latter "illegal"
mp_en_viaje: (think about the example -- the fellow running it has been doing it for a while, very readily spots that you
mp_en_viaje: ~are aware~ it's a scam. now it suddenly costs him more to figure out wtf you're doing than it costs you to play. sometimes this occurs to him, in which case you sudden;y got a conection in the local underground.)

mp_en_viaje: this "sceptical" is very much the same story as afanti's [aka nasreddin] engagedment to teach the local baron's singing in a year, on the theory that "i am hungry now -- who knows what will be in a year". he's skeptical as to the future. you're not, you have a theory as to the future, the difficulties are in the implementation.

phf: i didn't bother taking camera with me, because i didn't expect there to be any activity besides the parade, but the city was in full celebration mode
mp_en_viaje: so moral being, always take camera.
phf: i have a dslr that i got off somebody as debt repayment, which ended up putting me into a silly lock: it's heavy and not something you just grab with you, on the other hand i don't want to buy a smaller camera "since i already have dslr and i should sell it first", but then i also don't want to deal with selling it
phf: i ought to just pick up that sony you've mentioned

mp_en_viaje: it's pretty smart, in that it keeps the marginal value within republican walls.
asciilifeform: aha, that's the idea
asciilifeform: i have other 'surplus' gear also, for folx who have a use; e.g. a 'icestick' (ice40 '4k' (half-size)) proto-board, buncha similars, at some pt i'll make list

mp_en_viaje: lol i suspected.
asciilifeform: as often happens, mp_en_viaje suspects correctly.
mp_en_viaje: in other lulz : my ro lawyer came to me ~this sunday~, to return archived papers.
mp_en_viaje: the place he had them stored in, he got just about the time i was leaving. so my box was in the bottom of the pit. "i must've been thinner then", he says, cuz well... couldn't get into there. eventuslly managed to squeeze in, sideways, but then, once got box... couldn't get back out.
mp_en_viaje: had to call his clerk to come from his office, to extract him.
mp_en_viaje: so he went to market, bought materials, rebuilt his storage there.
asciilifeform: if it's the same fella asciilifeform met, i can picture this scene
mp_en_viaje: thus by the time he was knocking at my door ~2pm, he had been working for 8 hours

mp_en_viaje: asciilifeform, aha.
asciilifeform: a++ excavator. nao if he'd learn to pgp...

asciilifeform: although, next to that hotel i was in ( same 1 mp_en_viaje held c2 in ) , gigantic and apparently abandoned glass box bldg was having its roof methodically cut by scavengers with torches, quietly loaded each piece on truck and vanished before nightfall
diana_coman: they are new ruins! our ruins are newer and shinier than theirs!
asciilifeform: lol recall albert speer's 'ruins theory' aha
asciilifeform: later dug and found that that place was Officially for sale on www, for 'paltry mil bux', w/ no mention of 'dun come with roof'; so inferred that roof was 'unofficially' sold..
