lobbes: not complete yet, but what I was able to get done tonight at least. Currently eats a single dir full of ZNC logs (assumes the format of e.g. "2017-03-25.log"), puts the files in chronological order, and shits them all into a single .txt files
lobbes: still left to do: needs to convert the calendar timestamps into the phf-style unix epochal format.
lobbes: I can either pick it back up tomorrow night, or feel free to take that and do what you will

billymg: ^ i put together a quick POC for e2e testing on mp-wp. i have to sign off for the night and will be away from my main machine this weekend but will be checking the logs/comments if anyone has any feedback
mp_en_viaje: incidentally, speaking of http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/trilema/2019-08-08#1926225 : hanbot is taking teenaged / twentysomething females meeting the pizdi bill ; i presume asciilifeform is taking highly intelligent, shy & introverted males age-irrespective, math grad student prototype while diana_coman is taking inquisitive teenagers age irrespective and BingoBoingo latam... females ?

mp_en_viaje: i dunno, i'm kinda guessing here. maybe it's worth it for everyone to spend a moment think about it, make some definite statements, so each can redirect accordingly ?
mp_en_viaje: such that newbies can be met with "you should talk to X" instead of "i'm not interested, go away" or EVEN WORSE "[i'm not interested] but i'm going to go through the motions anyway, out of a feeling of obligation"

mp_en_viaje: been a while yea
trinque: lobbes: what bot's key did you have in mind?
trinque: deedbot has no such own key atm.
trinque: diana_coman: saw on a recent post on a blog that you supposed some decay re: the deedbot operator.
trinque: I'm not going to stop operating the services I'm providing any time soon, and I'd inform folks present before doing so.
trinque: handing over feeds was iirc a quite public matter, where spyked picked it up.
trinque: I'll correct the help.html to reflect.
trinque: incidentally I have records of every IRC message deedbot has ever seen.
trinque: if this is interesting to asciilifeform lmk
trinque: personally I've been holding back on doing anything about the state of chats awaiting asciilifeform's crypto platform.
mp_en_viaje: meanwhile in inspirational quotes, "Due to financial problems the filming of Eraserhead was haphazard, regularly stopping and starting again."
diana_coman: trinque: cool; and yes, change of feeds was public and I had simply forgotten of it hence went to check the bot's help page.
trinque: if someone this sensible says there exists no reliable basis for crypto dev, what do but await?
mp_en_viaje: i'd very much propose a read of david lynch's biography to all the "oh, i'm unmotivated" middle class dorks.
mp_en_viaje: it ~takes something~, something inside, to be someone. it's not a natural byproduct of tube socks and your mom loving you.
mp_en_viaje: trinque, prolly should publish said records as a "testing harness", so new bots can be tested against ?
trinque: gladly
mp_en_viaje: and if you care, i suspect the quietness of your blog is what's giving people creeps.
mp_en_viaje: publish a breakfast shot sometime. it's so much better than nothing you can't imagine.
mp_en_viaje: i know it ~sounds~ stupid. that's the problem with reality, the fundamentals sound stupid for no reason and shit that sounds smart usually is anything but.
trinque: I suppose I am an extremist and I wouldn't think of ^ by myself
mp_en_viaje: a little bit.
mp_en_viaje: see what i did there ? :D
trinque: sure
mp_en_viaje: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/trilema/2019-08-09#1926611 << perfectly reasonable stance ; never seen anything wrong with it (which is also why i never said anything about it).
snsabot: Logged on 2019-08-09 03:33:07 trinque: if someone this sensible says there exists no reliable basis for crypto dev, what do but await?
mp_en_viaje: only nowadays, with ffa and eucrypt & rest of stuff as they are to provide a basis, im starting talk of things such as http://trilema.com/2019/trilema-goes-dark/#comment-130709
mp_en_viaje: we'll of course have to lock down a format for it, too.
mp_en_viaje: but prolly before the end of the year we'll be wanting you to do that double-otp thing. that work ?
trinque: if this is becoming a reality, I am present for the transition to in-wot crypto, by god.
mp_en_viaje: will be fucking nice, that's for sure.
mp_en_viaje: GET RID OF HARDCODED LINE FEEDS HOLY SHIT WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONGGGGG with people!!!
trinque: just the fucking mind-rape of using computers these days, you know?
mp_en_viaje: tell hanbot about it, i got her a t450 two days ago, she's ~still~ working on it.
trinque: the only reason to get on one is a republican reason.
mp_en_viaje: i give it even odds ima walk into kitchen one day find it boiling peacibly on stove.
trinque: I'll fucking use their prebaked turd, or something fundamently not, but no incrementals ever again.
trinque: but see above re: extremism
trinque: it's a boiling fucking hatred.
mp_en_viaje: i think you're exagerating, esp re your view of cuntoo work & effects.
trinque: ha, I was just writing a few lines re: cuntoo
mp_en_viaje: it's absolutely not nearly as bad as it could be theoretically construed, which is still in from where i suspect you're pegging it atm.
trinque: behold mp_en_viaje, I have brought you a particular arrangement of dorkly turds.
trinque: this is like, ok, who is making intelligible calculators atm.
trinque: asciilifeform: what would it take to bake some peh?
mp_en_viaje: an underlying os, is the problem
mp_en_viaje: kinda why he wanted mips : could bake mips-peh-asic on the cheap atm.
trinque: isn't this what the republic needs, the place to talk that's intentionally constructed?
trinque: how much hardware does it cost to choose whom to talk to
mp_en_viaje: it's complicated ; language being its own essence imposes all sorts of curliques downstream.
mp_en_viaje: trinque, what happened to bv anyway ? you two still in touch at all ?
trinque: I think he wanted to do more, and so I.
trinque: we're struggling up into the money machine, and it has its costs.
trinque: I don't perceive an alternative.
mp_en_viaje: well, is he ok ? how's texas working out ? same bfast point applies, i actually checked http://cascadianhacker.com/ few times doing darkness week
trinque: he's very well. I'll ask him if he wants to dust off the voice.
trinque: I don't for the record know what I'd say, cognizant that I ought to say.
mp_en_viaje: while in kiev i met this brit (at the time masquerading as this local girl's sub, but w/e). as a joke, socially, i said i'm the most pretentious guy you'll ever meet, and when he asked for sauce i told him it says so right on my own blog. he found this a most excellent bon mot, "oh, that's perfect, you webpage nobody reads, not like the telegraph or something".
diana_coman: read "this brat"
mp_en_viaje: there's this default idea in the general populace, that a) somebody reads the raped-and-left-for-dead husks of ye olde gatekeepers and that b) it's still myspace days on internet, nobody reads "your webpage"
mp_en_viaje: this is utterly fucking false, of course. the telegraph doesn't get in a month the daily readership of trilema. but i think the ~pervasiveness~ of the antiquated, and mistaken, worldview may rub off on people.
trinque: mp_en_viaje: if you were just cresting 7 fig in 2019 what would you throw yourself into?
mp_en_viaje: so he sits and thinks "oh, nobody reads my blog". which is false.
trinque: as for me, I find myself in a mostly unintelligible froth of nonsense
mp_en_viaje: trinque, understand the following points :
mp_en_viaje: 1) i am an utterly TERRIBLE font of advice re business. i made oddles of money in SUCH improbable, unlikely venues and circumstances -- admittedly, regularly, multiply, repeadedly, but SO FUCKING UNLIKELY -- i dare not presume what works for me works in any meaningful sense.
mp_en_viaje: i don't mind saying, but keep in mind you're doing the equiv of asking columbus things about finding new continents. he ~doesn't know~. irrespective of what data may suggest, he was just there coincidentally, at right time.
trinque: I'm much more faces plus walls and pain tolerance.
mp_en_viaje: 2) i never made money, i always made power. the money was coincidental. i never made all the money there was to make or could. nor did i ever give much of a shit, i'm utterly not constructive, a world of nothing but mp will burn down.
trinque: and yet the republic is not nonsense.
trinque: which is just utterly wtf from the outside.
mp_en_viaje: 3) the whole of it was always hanging out with the cool people. i don't mean, "cool", as in, swag. i mean cool as in david lynch quote above, dork bought a 12 room house for $3500 in th worst gangland he could find for his wife and newborn kid and lived there, "the fear was palpable"
mp_en_viaje: that's my idea of cool.
mp_en_viaje: now given 1-2-3, what can i answer for you ?
trinque: nothing man, so I hope you like my cracks about 80s movies
mp_en_viaje: lol.
trinque: because compared to that, it's where I think I stand!
mp_en_viaje: ha
trinque: mine have been cutting deals, not so much raw power.
trinque: do you see this as some kind of innate item, or what
mp_en_viaje: you ever saw city hall ?
trinque: film? no
trinque: this is curious, that "a world of mp will burn down"
trinque: it makes an immediate kind of sense that outside the edifice of meaning you need a destructive process
trinque: because the former naturally grows.
mircea_popescu: you know i suspect i'm being ddosed ?
lobbesbot: mircea_popescu: Sent 1 hour and 1 minute ago: <mp_en_viaje> remember you wanted to !!rate -10 princessnell http://btcbase.org/log/2019-07-22#1924146
mircea_popescu: anyway, re city hall : it's a collection of platitudes, like any usian "deep" / "philosophical" movie. but it's a collection of ~well chosen~ platitudes, like the better such are, and in it incidentally pacino explains the problem with the dealmaking model :
mircea_popescu: you give out a little bit of yourself each time. and eventually, down the road, after enough dealmaking, you discover there's nothing actually left. this is very much the equivalent of alf's point re "only so many lines of code in one before insanity", except for business people, those who are too dumb to realise it on their own.
mircea_popescu: it's the intrinsic limit on dealmaking, and why the glib narcissist does well there -- very effectually defensive of the self AND not that much there to begin with. because that's always the best kept secret of the well defended fortress -- there wasn't so much inside to begin with.
spyked: good morning! /me is eating last night's logs
spyked: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/trilema/2019-08-08#1926421 <-- fwiw I personally use CL because it's the lang that allows me to eat most coad/hr; although looking at the "cl on pc is a dead end" thread, I'd throw it away without any remorse were there a "tmsr lang"
snsabot: Logged on 2019-08-08 16:59:01 diana_coman: and ftr I have no idea why did the other bots go for lisp anyway, did I miss somewhere the rationale for it?
spyked: also, I guess there's also the fact that despite all its problems, there's a pile of CL code (e.g. hunchentoot, cl-irc) that works... very similarly to how wordpress does the job, despite its size and other warts. maybe Ada could also find similar pieces of code for Ada, but tbh I haven't looked... yet?
spyked: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/trilema/2019-08-08#1926462 <-- it does that indeed, as per http://coad.thetarpit.org/feedbot/feedbot/c-feedbot.lisp.html#L8 ; heck I'll set it to 2sec if that guarantees it won't fail; but yeah, fleanode provides no actual guarantees.
snsabot: Logged on 2019-08-08 17:54:51 mircea_popescu: freenode wants 1s delay between msgs, and bot seems to try and do that but maybe add a 50ms buffer on top or somethign ?
mircea_popescu: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/trilema/2019-08-09#1926684 << definitely ; hand cranked, too -- hit mp_en_viaje's last ip when i logged on this one. well, coupla minutes later, anyway.

spyked: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/trilema/2019-08-08#1926520 <-- for trilemabot-voicer it works this way: the !!up + decrypt steps are manually operated; then the operator stores the OTPs in a list and the bot automatically !!v's them when it needs to up itself.

snsabot: Logged on 2019-08-08 22:20:39 asciilifeform: lobbes: i 'cheated' by recycling components from front-end of phuctor, admittedly.
mircea_popescu: incidentally, lobbes or billymg i guess -- if either of you feel like futzing with it, having a logger bot that spits out days formatted for mp-wp into MPWP_posts table formatted into a category so one can just plug that into their blog will prolly be fantastic.
diana_coman: at refresh of bot's log page I notice the "snappy but visibly slower than phf's " aspect asciilifeform mentioned
mircea_popescu: someone can then configure a local ~eater~ (taking, eg, bot cvs dumps) and have the logs (of w/e chan interests them) directly on their mp-wp. which means -- including the selection thing etc.
mircea_popescu: diana_coman, i noticed it too, takes a coupla secs for a longer page.
mircea_popescu: what can you do, alf just not as good at computing as phf :D

spyked: mircea_popescu, re. tmsr lang: could be one of two or three (or I dunno how many) langs, as long as tmsr owns 'em. atm there's no genesis for a cl compiler/interpreter (let alone e.g. networking code a la usocket, or a curl etc.), so... inb4 "fuck you spyked, I can't even compile sbcl, how do you want me to stand up your logotron"
mircea_popescu: ah, in that sense, tmsr-owned lang. yes
mircea_popescu: i took it as "one true computer lang", which is iffier.
spyked: ah. yeah, not sure there's such a thing. as asciilifeform pointed out, cl seems to handle string'isms better... and as mircea_popescu pointed out, cl doing tcpisms is not much different from python
mircea_popescu: what's your take on hutchentoot so far btw ? do you like it ?
spyked: mircea_popescu, purely from the user's point of view, it works reliably as far as I can see. and two days ago I wrote a simple mock "comment eater" for thetarpit and was reasonably productive. I haven't found any major flaws yet, so I'll continue working through the code.
mircea_popescu: alrighty.
mircea_popescu: i did say it infuriates me, which it does ; but then again im not using it, so.
spyked: my sense so far is that they (initially?) designed it to be a beast similar to Apache, rather than running behind it. it does multi-threading so it should be able to handle high loads pretty well. so if, say, I snipped the multi-threading bits out, I'd perhaps cut the code in half.
spyked: but I'm not sure that's the right way to go atm
mircea_popescu: high q multithreading is one of the few things cl has arguing for it
mircea_popescu: i wouldn't cut that.

mircea_popescu: whole x-files thing was mostly attempt to live off THAT, much like whole "sopranos" nonsense was trying to live off tarantino's perfect killer, 5 minutes of footage.
mircea_popescu: the obnoxious part is that tarantino didn't get 50% of sopranos income ; nor lynch of xfiles. though THEY WERE OWED
mircea_popescu: seinfeld, meanwhile, DID get ~half of what nbc made off that piece of utter crap.
mircea_popescu: moral hazard of the finest imperial flavour.
spyked: well, if we count the shows that are seinfeld rip-offs (e.g. that charlie sheen thing), maybe not even half.
mircea_popescu: which was that ?
spyked: hm... two and a half men
mircea_popescu: i missed that one.
spyked: I saw a couple of episodes in a weekend (and another couple of "big bang theory") and I got the distinct feeling of "these guys are trying to remake seinfeld with another cast and variations on the ol' premise". i.e. they're not jews in NY, but nerds in LA or something like that
mircea_popescu: anyway. moron jew boy ended up buying a bunch of cars. in new york. that's what he needed a billion dollars for.

mircea_popescu: nobody watched friends you'd want to talk to

asciilifeform: diana_coman: depending on meaning of 'peh iron', could be quite inexpensive ( e.g. to plant it on commonplace battery-powered item, e.g. pic32mz, is entirely possib. ). but possibly this is not what diana_coman was thinking of, but instead the full orchestra where e.g. 4096b multiplier for fast rsa ?

diana_coman: asciilifeform: the main issue is that I'd much rather run peh not-on-pc, pretty much
asciilifeform: diana_coman: one painful way in which ic fab differs from softwarisms is that failure is ~very~ expensive. buggy proggy you can throw away, you lost a day or however long it took to write. buggy ic is a coupla 100k (usabux) in the hole.
asciilifeform: diana_coman: peh-on-batteries is defo part of the planned sequence. (last ch! in fact.)
diana_coman: I still need to run tests and timings re "fast" but as a principle, it's not the first requirement (rsa is not for speed anyway)
asciilifeform: but, naturally can expect that will run considerably slower than on pc. (my current estimate, factor of 30 or so, on the extant chips)
diana_coman: well, looking forward to see it and time it
asciilifeform: diana_coman: whole story of how asciilifeform ended up with peh , if you recall, at one pt asciilifeform wanted to bake a battery-powered 'gpg replacement'. then went and saw what gpg actually consisted of, and found that not only koch liquishit, but broken on ~algo~ level

bvt: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/trilema/2019-08-08#1926433 << you don't actually need to concatenate anything as long as writev(3) is there. whether any gnat lib uses it -- dunno. at least nginx does use it (http://archive.is/QKjvD#selection-2735.36-2861.26), and imo this is a correct approach to the problem -- let kernel do the copying, if it needs to
snsabot: Logged on 2019-08-08 17:02:10 asciilifeform: diana_coman: principal weakness of ada in re this problem set (at least the ada 'specified' by asciilifeform) is stringism handling
asciilifeform: ( cuz -- naturally -- wants dozen or so deps, each 1 weighing moar than sum total of what asciilifeform ever wrote, lol , and consisting of ??? )
bvt: asciilifeform: did not try myself
bvt: tbh i would not mind attempting an irc bot in ada, but it seems more like leasure activity so far.
asciilifeform: bvt: how do i throw into a tcp socket a formatted fetch of log, consisting of unknown length of "<a ... " + blah + "</a>" etc, w/out string munging ?
asciilifeform: or do i misunderstand 'don't need to concatenate'
bvt: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/trilema/2019-08-08#1926442 << the lag is noticable, but i'd say it is entirely usable.
snsabot: Logged on 2019-08-08 17:05:07 asciilifeform: snsabot and its www end are imho usably snappy, but you can tell that they run in interpreter, visibly slower than phf's
bvt: asciilifeform: you make a chain (linked list of buffers with content), pass it's head to kernel
asciilifeform: bvt: imho it's just barely usable, and would defo benefit from rewrite in compiled lang where can turn knobs in realtime (i.e. cl)
bvt: you still need to format the numbers, etc, but for this can always know upper bound
asciilifeform: linked list WHERE
asciilifeform: don't tell me, 'in heap'
asciilifeform: i suppose it is theoretically possible to calculate upper bound... irc msg is only N chars max; and if full of nuffin but <a></a><a>...... but who can do this and guarantee no mistake ?
asciilifeform: not to mention what is upper bound for # of msgs in day ?
asciilifeform: there aint one
bvt: well, for most of format strings you know the number of formatted elements, right. re memory allocator -- an arena allocator is typically used, and file data can be mmaped
asciilifeform: so imho lost cause to try and calculate max size of page , even in such simple item as logotron
asciilifeform: this is not to say that 'impossible to logotron in ada', but that result will be 1) gargantuan 2) ~unreadable 3) likely buggy despite herculean effort
snsabot: Logged on 2019-08-08 17:01:07 asciilifeform: before long we're looking at 10,000ln lol
bvt: re logotron with arbitrary number of messages - can't you send data in a loop? otherwise the problem touches all levels of net stack -- can't have arbitrary sized packets either
asciilifeform: bvt: could, in principle.
asciilifeform: i think i mentioned, considered writing one. but then realized that will have to write tcpism and postgresism glue from 0.
asciilifeform: cuz the ancient ones in fact ~do not build~ anywhere that i could get hands on.
asciilifeform: example of such glue -- asciilifeform's udp lib
asciilifeform: there's an (ungenesis'd, cuz tripped on gnat bugginess) mmap glue also
asciilifeform: bvt: i do not presently know what would have to be done to use utf8istic strings in gnat, either
asciilifeform: ( afaik you cannot use ~any~ of the existing string ops for these... would have to handle as naked bytes )
asciilifeform: and would not even be able to "<a>" + whatever + "</a>" etc, i.e. can't use the existing sugar for string constants at all
bvt: i did some minor nginx plugin development -- the linked list approach was not bad, the only op i had to do with actual buffer was splitting it across chains links to insert data between.
asciilifeform: my point , again, is not that 'cannot be done' , but that http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/trilema/2019-08-09#1926853 .
snsabot: Logged on 2019-08-09 12:37:27 asciilifeform: i strongly suspect that 'logtron in ada' would inescapably contain the proverbial 'buggy 80% reimplementation of common lisp'(tm)
bvt: i don't think there is a way out of treating utf8ism as raw bytes, other than finding a heathen library
asciilifeform: damn near anyffin 'can be done'. full sized eiffel's tower from toothpicks, ~could~ be built.
asciilifeform: but i strongly suspect that 'ada logtron' will consist mostly of non-humanreadable hex constants , and the pg glue will be eating null-termed c strings , and generally the result will not be a thing you 'would fly in it? i wouldn't walk under it!'(tm)(r)(h. hughes)
asciilifeform: nao if you throw out pg and sqlism, and make mmap-based db from 0... then possibly. but again goes back to '80% reimplementation of commonlisp' territory.
asciilifeform: this is the 'flip side of the medal' -- sometimes the given abstractions are not a good fit for $problem. picture e.g. attempt to ffa in commonlisp, where you'd have to bend over backwards to make sure you ~never~ cons
asciilifeform: it is doable, and e.g. bolix's device driver coad was written that way. but is deep magic.
bvt: i would actually expect that pg protocol does not use 0terminated strings. re 80% of CL -- inside of it's implementation you'd find same shit. dunno how it would be different from using heathen libs
asciilifeform: bvt: the c glue defo uses
asciilifeform: and how else wouldja propose to talk to it.
asciilifeform: ( tcp?! )
asciilifeform: re general topic of 'string munging problems' -- they are plentiful and prolly inescapable, and i suspect there could be win from reviving an item like snobol (where ~sane~ abstractions specifically for stringism, rather than seas of regexp)
asciilifeform: ftr 95% of asciilifeform's sweat to make snsabot + logotron , went into debugging regexpolade.
bvt: true, but i don't find '80% of cl argument' too convincing; if want comfort, sure, use cl/python; want hard memory limits and gcc performance, can use ada, it won't be fundamentally dirtier (due to tcp and db stuff), just more boilerplate code
asciilifeform: i suspect the glue for pg alone (i.e. if pg disgorges eggog, to produce proper ada-compat. exception, rather than crash), not to mention utf8ism, would weigh like ten ffa's
asciilifeform: nao, a general-purpose strings-and-streams-munging script lang ~might~ be worth implementing in ada.
asciilifeform: sorta what i suggested to spyked at one pt
asciilifeform: !q s adalisp
snsabot: 24 results for "adalisp" in #trilema
asciilifeform: but it would not be a single evening's, or , i suspect, even single year's, weight of work.
asciilifeform: and would consist largely of c glue.
bvt: re pg - yes, you'd have to implement the protocol; and serialization/deserialization is error prone and typically takes lots of code (i.e. too much), agreed
asciilifeform: aand that's just pg. now consider how to deal with tcp.
asciilifeform: could try to use ada's 'streams' model. but then must decide, how to represent ~all~ of the possible tcp hiccups.
asciilifeform: ( what does a 0-length read mean in re a stream ? )
asciilifeform: my 'udp' lib was orig. gonna be a 'udp and tcp' lib. but very quickly realized...
bvt: on posix, don't think there is way out of exposing fds and syscalls
asciilifeform: problem isn't 'no way to expose', they're perfectly exposed, e.g. 'M' uses 100% raw syscalls for all i/o . problem is the fundamentally ill-conceived abstraction, where you don't ~only~ have the stream, but also a barely-known and large set of possible out-of-band eggog conditions
mircea_popescu: lol this logger's like ye olde teletype machines, feeds lines palpably
asciilifeform: clackclack
bvt: asciilifeform: until the day for tcp to die arrives, you'd still have to interact with tcp warts in that or other form
asciilifeform: bvt: indeed
asciilifeform: bvt: it's a headache that'll be around for good long time, hence worth to discuss
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: recall the orig. pythonistic backend of phuctor, btw
asciilifeform: ( geological-time ! )
mircea_popescu: kinda reminded me of ye olde telex days
mircea_popescu: early ro stock trading in the 90s used old commie era telexes. it was quite exciting
asciilifeform: these are even still used, in various ex-sovok places
asciilifeform: they're ~eternal.
asciilifeform: ( an' when output is to be made hardcopy anyway, to give to elderly general, why not telex, even ! )
asciilifeform: once saw a rare photoreportage of ru army hq and on what gear runs. 100% telex, made in ddr. )
mircea_popescu: not bad
bvt: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/trilema/2019-08-08#1926500 << i think get your point; though tbh, from my reading of linux it's not clear that urandom uses separate entropy pool, as i understood so far urandom uses the same pool as random, just ignores all 'entropy' measures (i still did not quite load that part in head, so this is not final info).
snsabot: Logged on 2019-08-08 18:58:36 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform, did the fg / kernel thing ever make sense to you ?
asciilifeform: telex & friends have substantial wins over 'modern' -- broken telex can be repaired by sweaty d00d with screwdriver, and out of improvised parts. whereas what's it even mean to 'repair' e.g. pc, esp. in condition where the parts not even made outside of taiwan.
asciilifeform: iirc mircea_popescu had this vintage piece, re 'technology vs magic' . where the former is something you can meaningfully take apart and repair, making new piece with lathe if you must; whereas the latter... can only pray
bvt: lol vintage, from 2019?
mircea_popescu: bvt, just about. btw, if you feel like reimplementing that use the hash-seed method
asciilifeform: ru army philosophy (inherited from sovok) holds that 'magic' is poison.
asciilifeform: ( 'magic' tends to end up in vehehery short supply, in wartime )
asciilifeform: bvt: i think i read it in an earlier, ro piece. that grr cannot just nao find.
mircea_popescu: i think it was more like 2013
bvt: at least it was reiterated here http://trilema.com/2019/so-what-is-the-man-saying/
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform, fuck, this is exact translation
asciilifeform: ha
mircea_popescu: bvt will have to believe this was also a ro piece years ago
asciilifeform: it is possible that i dreamed it
mircea_popescu: i just can't find it is all.

snsabot: Logged on 2019-08-09 04:45:56 spyked: also, I guess there's also the fact that despite all its problems, there's a pile of CL code (e.g. hunchentoot, cl-irc) that works... very similarly to how wordpress does the job, despite its size and other warts. maybe Ada could also find similar pieces of code for Ada, but tbh I haven't looked... yet?
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform, nah, that was exact translation.
asciilifeform: bvt: it was 1 of the items i tried to build. no dice.
asciilifeform: dies in ocean of liquishit.

mircea_popescu: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/trilema/2019-08-09#1926862 << this is actually important point. the notion of "compiler", as ~different from os~ and somehow part of "lang" is not unlike the notion of road signage as differen tyfrom road and somehow part of all windshields and rearview mirrors.
snsabot: Logged on 2019-08-09 12:46:32 asciilifeform: the 'pc micro revolution' popularized an imho extremely braindamaged concept of what is 'comp lang'. specifically, where folx think that the front syntax is somehow logically glued to the internal mechanics ( whereas is merely happenstance, pc provides such broken bedrock abstractions that forces erry new lang author to write compiler 'from 0' as if year were 1959, but this is merely happenstance, rather than logical inevitability )
mircea_popescu: and then what, have legions of gnomes running around painting/erasing that stop sign in correct perspectives at 20fps ?
mircea_popescu: sounds kinda fucking stupid and in any case more expensive than just painting some sheet metal and piking it in the ground by the roadside. but then again if mechanical engineering worked like software "engineering"...
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: funnily enuff, 1 of the more recent idjit fads in pnojeism etc is just this, 'augmented reality', where user is to try an' look at e.g. shops, roads, through peephole of pnoje, to see imaginary 'signs' imposed on the picture
asciilifeform: i fully expect that reich will at some pt give up on maintaining street signage, and try to push ~this~ as 'replacement'
mircea_popescu: well, pretty much the only way they'll see any shops at all, soon enough
asciilifeform: not long ago asciilifeform went to bazar, and there were folx selling coffee. but instead of the usual signage saying what is name of the co, and from where coffee, there was... qr code. 'hey dontcha get it, aim pnoje camera here and will see little film clip of our spokesman..'
