mp_en_viaje: because that's the very correlate of republic, and of selectivity and of changing the world, as opposed to social club.
mp_en_viaje: and so, given that we've decided "something like the item will have to exist" and also "the actual item may be just as good a starting point as anything, and in any case better than pen, blank paper, and alf's scheduler", thus therefore it follows, mandatorily and undisputably, that there will be a bunch of large genesises.

trinque: this "gb genesis is fine" thing comes as a surprise.
trinque: in light of years of threads on the subj.
trinque: my intent here was to have the vtree read as a history of the items as they have been understood, not as "here's the wad of shit diana_coman needed one day so we put it all in and signed it"
asciilifeform: trinque: it's 'gordian knot' that has to be cut ~somehow~. consider, as of yet asciilifeform cannot vtronicize that kernel patch, cuz... no kernel genesis.
asciilifeform: ditto gcc.
trinque: we agree the work isn't done, but I fundamentally disagree that gb genesis is the move
diana_coman: trinque: the trouble is that you need to start from somewhere and that somewhere is "this wad of shit"
asciilifeform: trinque: how wouldja do it ?
trinque: moreover it would've been great to have someone raise this objection when I was posting alphas of the thing for months
diana_coman: so how do you suggest to start? because even if I have this ebuild, I can't patch it because effectively, no sources so what am I patching exactly, just the ebuild script? how does that help?
trinque: I told you what work would be necessary to make having the src in the tree do anything in the last thread.
trinque: "fuck you I deal only in platonic ideals" is not a way of interfacing with the world
trinque: there are several changes to portage that'd have to happen before it's going to build any src you make part of that tree
asciilifeform: trinque: imho worth to write article re subj
asciilifeform: atm trinque afaik is the only 1 who went deep enuff into the portage guts to know the detail
trinque: diana_coman: did you yet read, understand, clean, and swear to the foregoing re: curl?
trinque: or did you just need it?
diana_coman: trinque: my experience is that portage will happily build sources that are locally in /cuntoo/distribution (iirc.); so I don't understand re "won't build"
diana_coman: trinque: not cleaned no, not swearing either; hence mp_en_viaje 's earlier observation that I'm not vpatching but genesising and those are different precisely because genesis is a place to start (be it a wad of shit) not "this thing I can swear to "
trinque: mk, so anything we don't feel like reading we just cram into the genesis for our children to swim in
diana_coman: I don't want curl in the genesis, lolz
diana_coman: I want however A genesis from where to be able to start
diana_coman: you know, I went into this+curl because you said oh noez, nobody is doing ebuilds etc
trinque: sure. and if you disagree with my incrementalism, that's fine too.
trinque: we did exactly "here are the filthy deps we don't understand and will probably abandon" in trb, recall
trinque: we did it by hash reference
trinque: if you can graft in an understood curl somewhere ~and~ get portage to use that src I'll applaud
diana_coman: trinque: I suppose I don't *understand* the incrementalism you see there; because there isn't something I can follow "from this genesis he did this vpatch cutting that out etc"
diana_coman: or is your objection to using V for verifiable-incrementalism or what
BingoBoingo: Mocky: ty
trinque: my objection is that nobody here knew how to build a linux aside perhaps 3 folks.
trinque: my first step was to enumerate the wads of ??? needed
trinque: now someone can read the genesis and know what goes into the recipe
trinque: from there, yeah, learn about curl
trinque: learn about runit or hell glibc
trinque: musl, w/e
trinque: but having crammed them all into the genesis ruins the "what's a linux" overview
diana_coman: but enumeration is not "know what wads goes" , how does this work? how is "a wad called soandso" enough?
trinque: so as I said, if you can now vpatch in an ~understood~ curl, do it, and make portage build it, and show me how
trinque: diana_coman: I'm going to have to leave. my final point is that this "do it all perfectly and yesterday" is a great way to never go anywhere
diana_coman: the "perfectly" is your addition
diana_coman: and precisely what you are throwing back that "oh, but you want the shit in the genesis,no!"
asciilifeform: trinque: the root of problem is how to do the GB-of-shit to kB-of-food conversion w/out genesising the shit
diana_coman: as I get it, you want genesis to be only something-perfectly-understood; that is the perfection that is not possible and that nobody is asking for
asciilifeform: mp_en_viaje evidently also had nfi how, and so prescribed 'genesis the GB of shite'
asciilifeform: i also haven't any better idea atm.
asciilifeform: e.g alternative of asciilifeform's 'here is my hash of mp's gpg-1.4.10' thing is fundamentally sinful , cuz not in fact vtronically contiguous w/ original
trinque: I mean, if it's what's wanted, somebody else step up, and I'll trash the item I made.
asciilifeform: in fact, recall how trb 'chicken' genesis was a hand-cranked recipe, cuz had to delete binary gif turds etc and vtron of the time could not autodigest such deletion
trinque: asciilifeform: I really don't care what the perfectly preserved historic curl was, so long as the revised item passed through a single human head in my wot
asciilifeform: trinque: sure. but you can't have vpatch w/out a genesis that actually puts the original on the machine, or what am i missing
diana_coman: trinque: ftr there is no talk whatsoever of trashing the item you made, no idea where that came from

asciilifeform: http://btcbase.org/log/2019-07-19#1923625 << was a sort of cheat tho, the genesis did not actually include bdb etc ~textually~ . so maintained illusion of 'trb is this 300kB of shitoshi'
a111: Logged on 2019-07-19 14:57 mp_en_viaje: and yes, it included fucking bdb, as well as all sorts of stupid crap, which no, nobody swore to this very day ; not because nobody read, either. nor do i expect anyone will ever swear to bdb trb component.
asciilifeform: which , i fear , gave folx unrealistic expectation
asciilifeform: at the time i dun think there was even thought yet of 'must confiscate gcc' etc
mp_en_viaje: at the time there wasn't the need. notice how all the destructoforks happened just about the time we announced v.
asciilifeform: then 'ada renaissance' and suddenly 'hey gnat dunwork' and so on
mp_en_viaje: was multi pronged, there's me having meltdowns over eulora not compiling either, and so on.
asciilifeform: fast-fwd to nao, when asciilifeform goes into what formerly 'obvious nuttery', i.e. 'let's genesis a whole machine arch'

asciilifeform: cuz can't see how else to avoid 'so sad, asciilifeform , you thought could gnat errywhere? how about it dunwork on arm, bahaha'
a111: Logged on 2019-07-17 12:25 asciilifeform: the incident where i glued together rk pilot plant, to only ~then~ find out that nobody knows when the fuck proper gnat will actually build arm binaries w/ working threading, was instructive.

a111: Logged on 2019-07-19 15:18 mp_en_viaje: there's this strange habit in many places in eastern europe, including romania, where peasant houses, even two room houses, get a "front room" which is never lived in. the family deposits "the good stuff" there, never uses it, goes in for two hours a year during easter or w/e.
mp_en_viaje: good for them ; but i don't.
asciilifeform: me neither
asciilifeform: 'nazi submarine' right off doorstep.
mp_en_viaje: should be good enough.
asciilifeform: guest: 'is that.. bear trap?!' a:'what's the problem'
asciilifeform: there's a scene in 1 of mp_en_viaje's fictions where almost literally depicts asciilifeform's torture room
asciilifeform: can't seem to find in O(1) tho
mp_en_viaje: http://btcbase.org/log/2019-07-19#1923572 << dood, nevermind the "yesterday" and dramatis persona generally. last i saw stuff from you it was A DIFFERENT YEAR. what yesterday ?
a111: Logged on 2019-07-19 13:05 trinque: diana_coman: I'm going to have to leave. my final point is that this "do it all perfectly and yesterday" is a great way to never go anywhere
mp_en_viaje: asciilifeform, well, any detailed specifics ?
asciilifeform: was scene where 2 d00dz sitting by a table, and it is full of mobos, rifle optics, cpus, unspeakable wirings, etc
asciilifeform: 1 sends for daughter to come and undress an' show its wares etc
asciilifeform: this kinda thing aint a point of pride for asciilifeform , would rather sit in well-tidied workbench. but in fuckholeistan where real estate costs like on space station -- even commercial labs look same.
mp_en_viaje: ah yes. titless.
asciilifeform: there we go.
mp_en_viaje: wh ythe fuck are our selections different ?!
asciilifeform: was thinking same q this morning
mp_en_viaje: holy fuck wtf
mp_en_viaje: the dom is not stable enough to have meaningful count!
asciilifeform: currently suspect sumthing to do with verticality of asciilifeform's display
asciilifeform: cant think why else just yet
asciilifeform: ( complete with 'danish butt', laugh if you will. i no longer eat'em, but gotta keep the screws, 74xxx, rejected FG components, ..., ..., somewhere! )
mp_en_viaje: asciilifeform, aha, i have a bunch of them ~same reason
asciilifeform: at one time i made regular visits to tobacconist, even tho do not myself cigar. to buy : boxes.
mp_en_viaje: cig metal tubes pretty good for all sorta uses. decent butt dildo in a pinch too.
mp_en_viaje: disease of american capitalist.
asciilifeform: i found one as a boy , had nfi what it was
asciilifeform: brought it to usa. later found, 'romeo & juliet' cuban, circa 1970s
asciilifeform: apparently in su they were sold at one time errywhere, but sat on shelves, ~no one wanted, no one knew how to smoke'em properly
asciilifeform: ( untutored folx would try to smoke'em like cig, an' choke )
asciilifeform: castro's payment for the rockets.
mp_en_viaje: http://btcbase.org/log/2019-07-19#1923602 << yes yes. i wasn't contemplating an indictment, i mearly meant, we, sometime cca 2015, discovered that any heavy lifting re trb gotta wait, for some terraforming work.
a111: Logged on 2019-07-19 13:34 asciilifeform: certainly has NOT 'stood in place since 2015' tho. i would not want to use the trb of '15 in preference to the current.
mp_en_viaje: which is why we're working on build toolchains and kernels and whatnot, in lieu of, eg, trbfs.
asciilifeform: mp_en_viaje: 'heavy' was pretty much all '15 aha
asciilifeform: (e.g. orphanage snip, 'seeds' snip)
mp_en_viaje: eventually hit a wall
asciilifeform: mp_en_viaje: frustratingly, i have the 'trbfs'. but grrrr gnat bugola
asciilifeform: ( the O(1) tx store . )
asciilifeform: tho, tbf, most of it wrote in '17
asciilifeform: ( it was only then that even devised the algo, during thread w/ mp_en_viaje re 'trbi' )
mp_en_viaje: this extensive travel is going to make finding shit in a few years SO fucking painful. "i wonder, did i say mircea_popescu ? mp_en_viaje ?"...
mp_en_viaje: wtf am i gonna do here ;/
asciilifeform has same problem, from back when 'butugychag' etc
mp_en_viaje: we'll hafta come up with something
asciilifeform: i usually end up searching for what the folx who were 'at home' had said in $thread .
asciilifeform: typically nails it.
asciilifeform: http://btcbase.org/log/2019-07-19#1923618 << if i recall, they're sitting in same common grave / salt mine in tx somewhere, atm
a111: Logged on 2019-07-19 14:46 mp_en_viaje: just up and start "telling what work" in trilema, ESPECIALLY seeing how you've not so far done such an impressive job "telling what work" in #trinque, so as to, for instance, rescue ben_vulpes from his grave.
mp_en_viaje: well, the reason i don't really know what's going on would be that... never said.
asciilifeform: ( i dun think the particulars were ever detailed , but evidently salt mine that dun leave much juice left when whistle blows in evening )
mp_en_viaje: i guess so.
asciilifeform: iirc ben actually had own shop, in the north, but then moved south for moarmoolah
asciilifeform: but nuffin else was said.
asciilifeform: 'golden age' of ben in re trb etc was when was in own shop .

a111: Logged on 2019-05-08 23:20 asciilifeform: grr i was gonna add that famous lathe meat-wind pic to this thread, but cannot nao find.
mp_en_viaje: do you recall that arguably famous-er pic of the guy on the er table with hips turning cyanotic hugging a telephone pole up his ass ?
asciilifeform: almost certainly saw
mp_en_viaje: seems it's gone also.
asciilifeform: net o'brokenlinx
mp_en_viaje: in other horrible news : it's confirmed, the selection thing is ~~~BROWSER SPECIFIC~~~
mp_en_viaje: the fucking cuntheaded imbecile anti fucking human MORONS made it so you can't, actually, have in-page reference that works reliably.
mp_en_viaje: selection thing works by counting dom elements, and, guess the fuck what, different browsers build the thing differently, resulting in different counts.
asciilifeform: it's a wonder that even displaying text worx reliably
mp_en_viaje: what the fuck am i going to do
asciilifeform: when i was sawing the thing apart , thought 'why not make selector search for start/end chars until finds unique, then sel displayer ditto' but did not get to trying this
asciilifeform: possibly someone handy with jsism could attempt ( lobbes ? )
mp_en_viaje: what if i want to select the third duck in duckduckduck ?
asciilifeform: if this is the ~only~ text on the page, then start='duck', end='duck' neh
asciilifeform: ( if not -- 'xyzduck' and 'duckpqr' respectively, where xyz/pqr are context)
mp_en_viaje: this completely the fuck fucked me over thoyugh, 100+ links, hand picked all, now useless.
asciilifeform: not necessarily useless, could autoconvert to $form
asciilifeform: i'ma defo do mine, if this is baked
mp_en_viaje: fucking insanity.
asciilifeform: mountain of insanity, 100km tall
asciilifeform: is what www browserism is.
mp_en_viaje: asciilifeform, so your idea is, recursive search ? user selects "duck" in abcduckefg, the script tries "c" sees if unique, if yes uses, if not tries bc, if unique uses if not abc etc ?
asciilifeform: ( after google bought opera & buried in cement, became 'de facto standard' microshit-style. nao behaves 100% like 1990s microshit, does whateverthefuck it wants )
asciilifeform: mp_en_viaje: correct
asciilifeform: idea is, selector knows what the selection is, when it is made, ~that~ part worx errywhere
mp_en_viaje: and it'd look like #selection-abc-efg
asciilifeform: could possibly compress for link shortening, but yes
mp_en_viaje: should prolly compress, to avoid comma in url.
mp_en_viaje: who else is there, billymg ? Mocky ? either of you got a moment to do this ?
mp_en_viaje: asciilifeform, if you compress, now stuck putting lzw, in js, on every page
asciilifeform: who said lzw.
mp_en_viaje: whartever compress you use.
asciilifeform: simple run-length encode worx as well
mp_en_viaje: i guess that's not so lengthy
asciilifeform: coupla ln of jshit , i expect
asciilifeform loox in his notebook and finds also 'hm why not let mp-wp highlight selects on server-end, so machines w/out js display highlights' but also never attempted this, notenuff phpfu
asciilifeform: mp_en_viaje: re select, potentially you can get away with storing only left side + character count
mp_en_viaje: i honestly like this better.
asciilifeform: e.g. 'duck+4'
asciilifeform: tru, left+right makes for human-readable selector
asciilifeform: potentially can decode on box where no js, by hand grep
mp_en_viaje: highlight selects on server end, hmmmm
asciilifeform: see, i fuckinhate js
asciilifeform: have it switched off on most boxen
mp_en_viaje: problem is, ss selection will look weird.
asciilifeform: how so ?
mp_en_viaje: now you're stuck with "how will fucktardedbrowser display"
asciilifeform: no more so than w/ js selectism neh
asciilifeform: make it look exactly same, if liek
asciilifeform: i haven't yet found browser that doesn't render text colour when asked
mp_en_viaje: local "select" behaviour is always defined, but afaik there's no exposed "make it look selected" call
mp_en_viaje: asciilifeform, of course, if one's doing server side no need to grep, count start, count end
asciilifeform: naturally not. you'd have to put in e.g. <span style="blah">....</span> or whatnot. and 'anchor' so thing scrolls to it.
mp_en_viaje: the dom construction / abomination varies, but my articles are still mysql fields, unchanged
asciilifeform: and correct, if server-end munge, you dun need the displayer js at all
asciilifeform: only need js for select-maker
asciilifeform: ( would do roughly same thing as presently, but munge the url in browser so when loaded, gives server-end selectified copy )
asciilifeform: bonus, in machine log could see what readers like to select.
asciilifeform: all of this may or may not be worth the effort. but perhaps worth to try.
mp_en_viaje: in continuing sads : /me attempted to spec the server side php job ; and it can be done, roughly, there exist primitives for, eg, "insert this after nth word and that after mth word". however : a) this interferes with the footnotes, because footnotes exist as z (( b)) and not as displayed on page ; and b) there's no good way to # and ? at the same time because of the way trilema handles title-urls.
asciilifeform: i thought footnotes were html anchors
asciilifeform: or is this in re the internal representation
mp_en_viaje: the internal representation.
mp_en_viaje: server side amirite.
mp_en_viaje: a ((b)) c ((d)) appears as a b --- c d on-page.
mp_en_viaje: and there's also no way to have trilema.com/article-title/?start=5&end=7#selection
mp_en_viaje: can has trilema.com/article-title/?start=5&end=7 OR trilema.com/article-title/#selection but not rly both.
mp_en_viaje: this is so fucking broken ;/
asciilifeform: could in principle trilema.com/article-title/5/7/#selection ?
asciilifeform: cut it up on serv side into operands, do Right Thing
mp_en_viaje: ah that's an idea huh.
asciilifeform has nfi whether this is trivial to implement , or headache
asciilifeform: the thing already cuts into /-separated chunks, tho, neh.
mp_en_viaje: nfi either, but we find out soonish
asciilifeform: upstack: imho best form would be 100% plaintext, sumthing like trilema.com/article-title/rubber/ducky/ . then! can also ~select~ by hand crank, without jsism, if want , on box w/out jsism
asciilifeform: ( down side -- would need the backend to search with ignoring of spaces, commas, etc )
diana_coman gave all computers around work to do for the next hours so she goes happily to sleep.
asciilifeform: goodnight diana_coman
mp_en_viaje: asciilifeform, that'll never work though, because obviously it'll try to find an article by that name
asciilifeform: mp_en_viaje: why's that ? name is what's b/w the 1st 2 / , neh ?
asciilifeform: why would it matter what's after the 2nd / ?
mp_en_viaje: afaik the name's hacked into an article via htaccess, which is yet another pointless and poorly specified scripting lang atop the shit tower
asciilifeform tried several times, never got his htaccess thing to work correctly, hence why still has barbarian ?=xyz titles
mp_en_viaje: consider some simple examples : http://trilema.com/pili works, takes one to http://trilema.com/2016/pili/ which is the cannonical form. http://trilema.com/pil also works
mp_en_viaje: so does http://trilema.com/2016/pili/441222/ ; however neither http://trilema.com/2016/pili/441/222/ nor http://trilema.com/2016/pili/441-222/ work
asciilifeform: unsurprisingly they dunwork ~now~ , but could be made ?
asciilifeform does not know how, exactly, so will have to leave it there
asciilifeform: the proposed format aint mathematically ambiguous, i can write it as regexp say. but whothefuckknows what the programmatic liquishit getting in the way might be.
mp_en_viaje: well, here's the thing -- IF you move the "extract data from uri" into php, you lose... url replacement.
mp_en_viaje: the ~only~ way to have that indirection layer, is to use htaccess
mp_en_viaje: i mean obviously one could modify apache to be less fucked in the head, but ...
asciilifeform: loox like finally a potential justification for spyked's thing
mp_en_viaje: it does, at that.
asciilifeform: rright, just thinkin' about .htaccess makes asciilifeform's stomach go
asciilifeform: pretty typical specimen of 'we ameritards, did it over friday beer an' pizza' kludge
mp_en_viaje: in theory you could possibly htccess script-fu something like domain/a/b/c into domain?q=a&w=b&e=c ; HOWEVER, the problem is the domain space is currently narrow.
asciilifeform: mp_en_viaje: what if sel operands were to go on ~left~ side ?
mp_en_viaje: eg, trilema has implicit search, if you type in trilema.com/pus you instaget http://trilema.com/2018/pushing-the-soft-flesh-and-so-on-against-the-so-and-so-blades-of-the-immutable-machine-etcetera-second-installment/
mp_en_viaje: and i use this ~extensively~
mp_en_viaje: in fact, it might be the one thing on the web i most use.
asciilifeform: e.g. trilema.com/rubber/ducky/2018/pushing-the-soft-flesh-and-so-on-against-the-so-and-so-blades-of-the-immutable-machine-etcetera-second-installment/
asciilifeform: then narrow domain for'em, and can easily detect whether present
mp_en_viaje: asciilifeform, admire the weird : http://trilema.com/2016/44/pili and trilema.com/2016/44/32/21/11/pili/ respecrtively
asciilifeform: trilema.com/foo/bar/2016/44/32/21/11/pili/ btw loads even nao...
asciilifeform: nao all you'd need is to pluck out that foo and bar
asciilifeform: and use'em to bake highlight
mp_en_viaje: moreover, with prefix, what do you do with trilema.com/4 ? currently it (correctly) finds http://trilema.com/2012/40-vs-80/
asciilifeform: ( iirc php gives you copy of full url ? )
mp_en_viaje: asciilifeform, it does not load, it just wipes your string
asciilifeform: ah so if the page renderer asks for url, it dun see foo, bar ?
asciilifeform: (i.e. gets eaten by htaccessism ? )
mp_en_viaje: o fuck me, it MUST see it
asciilifeform: gotta, neh
mp_en_viaje: ok this might be major breakthrough here
mp_en_viaje: tjhis, incidentally, is EXACTLY how tower of shit was even built in the first palce
asciilifeform: towers o'shit are cumulative, noose at 11..
mp_en_viaje: now ima tell someone "look what weird shit we found, USE IT" and they won't dare say "why"
asciilifeform: 'new shithouse will be built from bricks of the one we blew up'(tm)(r)(lenin)
trinque: http://btcbase.org/log/2019-07-19#1923536 << yes, and "cuntoo" would've contained it if I took the wad-of-shit-in-genesis approach.
a111: Logged on 2019-07-19 12:51 asciilifeform: trinque: it's 'gordian knot' that has to be cut ~somehow~. consider, as of yet asciilifeform cannot vtronicize that kernel patch, cuz... no kernel genesis.
trinque: I started from an item that was 900mb and that was just the ebuild tree.
trinque: not having to be able to read vpatches is, lets say retrospectively declarative.
trinque: at the very least I'd want to say "this is the one with kernel in it"
BingoBoingo: So, it appears Iran took two British ships and released one with a warning.
trinque: at any rate no, I'm not doing a man-month of rework on the thing any time soon. not standing in the way of anyone else doing it either.
asciilifeform: trinque: iirc we don't yet even have a vdiff that'd eat 900M
asciilifeform: even if 'yes want'
asciilifeform: i.e. it's a theoretical (if somewhat burning) q, rather than 'ohnoez, trinque Did It All Wrong'
trinque: and I don't fault mp_en_viaje his ideological rigor. not in the slightest.
trinque: http://btcbase.org/log/2019-07-19#1923622 << the whole rest of history then requires this multi-gb genesis long after the resultant item has been carved to however many mb
a111: Logged on 2019-07-19 14:52 mp_en_viaje: http://btcbase.org/log/2019-07-19#1923552 << exactly. it is marginally better than merely dropping portage on their head ; and it is ideologically defensible because guess what, if they don't like the genesis they don;t have to either patch on it or press it.
asciilifeform: trinque: indeed does. bitter pill. but sorta like bitcoin requires that 300GB (an' counting) of liquishit, 4evah
trinque: rather than having a perforation point which can be torn off, preserving the references for whichever historian that cared, but *not importing the shitwad into the future indefinitely* was the point
trinque: asciilifeform: the vtree for bitcoin is not and never will be 300gb
asciilifeform: i meant the blox, trinque
asciilifeform: it's the same thing, imho, the cost of being able to trace the history to birth of universe, is having to keep it around
trinque: this regresses infinitely.
asciilifeform: nao what i'd really like is to ditch the idjit unixdiff's reversible deletions
asciilifeform: where if you snip a MB, ~that patch~ now weighs 1MB+
asciilifeform: there's no fucking point to that, if we keep genesis of orig
asciilifeform: trinque: how does 'regress infinitely' ? plox to elaborate
trinque: by way of example, why does your p not contain gnat
trinque: and inb4 IT WILL, I know!
trinque: why doesn't it today?
asciilifeform: imho this is the real open q in the thread -- how to represent relation b/w nominally separate proggies
asciilifeform: each of which by all logic wants to be sep. vtree, but are dependent functionally
asciilifeform: if can solve this cleanly, can then be rid of portage, even, in principle
trinque: this I think correctly runs afoul of mp_en_viaje's "there is only one fucking tree, and it does not loop"
trinque: see, I'm this perverse fellow that knows the scripture even.
trinque: and agrees, yet sins
trinque: asciilifeform: the point being yes, we can be rid of portage, but where are the steps between there and here.
trinque: might as well say what I'm doing with my time lately, which is related. I'm horking down bitcoins by the $10k, what
asciilifeform: i suppose beats alternative where burning life in salt mine and ~not~ piling up coin
trinque: it's shitty, lol, but what am I going to hold when I'm 40.
trinque: upstack, trying to capture linux in this manner might've been a fool's errand. might be that a muntzed kernel and a busybox-like are a saner beachball to eat.
asciilifeform: is actually all i got atm in the mips thing -- busybox
trinque: I've lived in it, isn't so bad
asciilifeform: ( + 'dhrystone' lol )
lobbesbot: BingoBoingo: The operation succeeded.
asciilifeform: trinque: thinking about it, 1 possible answer to the puzzler is to make an entire orchestra as 1 vtree.
asciilifeform: trinque: the obv. toothbreaking stone is gnat.
asciilifeform: iirc at one time mp suggested this, 'there oughta be ONE genesis'
asciilifeform: but iirc this was before we even gnat'd
trinque: I'd be surprised if that stone doesn't haul in all the rest
asciilifeform: trinque: to expand -- currently gnat srcball aint a complete description of gnat. i.e. it demands existing gnat. iirc was described pedantically in old thrd.
asciilifeform: mipsism is a half-solution, of sorts, in that can build a mipsistic gnat and then will execute anywhere you can port the 12kB emu to
asciilifeform: but not 'troo' solution
asciilifeform: afaik nobody has troo solution of yet.
