trinque: I have no idea what you just asked.
lobbes: Well, you said that automation is not what Pizarro needs. BingoBoingo brought up mp's data (from his fetlife filtering) that suggests that in order to reach actual humans and sift through the ocean, you need automation
BingoBoingo: #pizarro gets a slow, steady number of walk ins
BingoBoingo: Per mircea_popescu's documented experience it seems private messages on www traps is the highest return payload delivery path
lobbes: yeah, and per my "not mutually exclusive?" I don't see why you can't have both automation AND good ad copy is all
lobbes: and once asciilifeform's hands are free, I think he will be able to focus on the automated bits iirc
trinque: man, as soon as somebody writes that automated lead generator we'll all retire with girls wrapped around our cocks just like mp.
trinque: it's not IRC trivia that drives me away from you lot. it's the bizzare godman worship with *no intent whatsoever* to put in the work to make a red cent.
BingoBoingo: It was a bit of a surprise to me, but outside the wire... cockwrapping girls are easy to find. Like mp's or not like mp's is a matter of scarce head quality. Tomorrow, I'm going to have to put another dump out on my fight in the realm of what asciilifeform calls "unbounded symbols" and the enemy calls "modern democracy". There is a 10-12% chance per heathen polls that the risk profile of Pizarro in Uruguay elevates substantially over
BingoBoingo: derps ritually marking papers.
trinque: yes, I can angularly yap in my pet direction too.
trinque: what are you going to do to grow your business?
BingoBoingo: Tomorrow I am going to try the cuntoo genesis scripts on the test machine with a differrent set of found kernel configs while the Uruguayos play their annual independence day death race game. Then I'll ask alf if we have multithreading on ARM yet and suggest his next payload consist of either 4 full 1U AMD64 box, 2 1Ubox and 8 PCengines APU, or 3 1Ubox and 4 APU.
BingoBoingo: It isn't simply that I don't write new code that works, its that I've only ever successfully coded anyting with my delete key
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: wat is this.. it would seem that trinque is offering his services ? why the immediate refusal? find out what he would like in recompense, and what offers.

deedbot: lobbes paid BingoBoingo invoice 7
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: I'm not refusing at all. I'm simply stating where it seems our outlook on the next hardware move is as of this moment, my admission of code generation inability Spanish hasn't helped, and I've highlighted an edge case risk (The Colorado Talvi as Prissident) which hangs over Pizarro's physical presence.
BingoBoingo: And I am indeed giving Cuntoo another try because linux kernel shit is nearly Argentine cyanoacrylate level shit. The kernel config is an essential piece of making the orchestra string yet because shitgnomes it is a very rough edge to the fault of noone here but plenty of people out of here.
lobbes: I gotta say, the last ~20 or so lines have been one weird conversation. I think trinque was trying to say "pizarro needs sales yesterday, want help with it?" and BingoBoingo was trying to say "sure but automation of marketing is also important". Somehow none of the points connected despite everyone seemingly being in agreement (and my attempts at articulating it I don't think helped either)
lobbes: anyways I'm off to learn more awk and then bed
BingoBoingo: lobbes: This is a very fair read

mircea_popescu: one failure mode's not particularly better than the other ; nor is failure this magical and "nobody could have predicted"-y thing. your neglected blog's exactly like phf's neglected blog, and it drives the same sort of stupidity in both of you, for the same reasons, in the same ways.
mircea_popescu: "butthurt"'s not even getting close. however you're misrepresenting it to yourself, what you're actually doing is fucking yourself over.
mircea_popescu: the actual reality of the matter is this : that nicole could very well http://trilema.com/2018/meet-miss-piggy/ and yet her cunt didn't fall off ; eric could very well http://blog.lobbesblog.com/2019/08/on-relationships-or-how-pretense-kills/ and yet his cock didn't fall off ; but phf couldn't, and is butthole DID fall off.
mircea_popescu: yes, the business inacumen & sheer inability to make money is going to kill "them", slowly but surely. the inability to think about yourself is going to make it irrelevant whether you're killed or not, however. it's one node up.
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo, more's the point : are you drinking again ?
hanbot: mircea_popescu #pizarro logs paint a slightly different picture than the exchange above imo, for instance http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/pizarro/2019-08-17#1000063 --though looks like trinque never got an answer. looks to me like miscommunication, not particularly lack thereof...though none of this speaks to the "where's this written on your blog" issue.
snsabot: Logged on 2019-08-17 20:38:02 trinque: BingoBoingo: I had another idea re: customer acquisition for y'all.
mircea_popescu didn't read #p, sorries.
mircea_popescu: though in fairness, when crossing castle walls one's kindly asked to provide context, plox.
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: Last night I was. Today I am brewing coffee, getting thiamine, going to a meeting, asking myself why *this* stupidity again, and sticking my nose back in the book.
trinque: at any rate. I have a coin processor that is only going to be worthwhile if there are services which use processing.
trinque: on the blog front, I've got some weird brewing in response to the tlp seroquel annotation.
trinque: re: my various offers to #p, I'd be happy to fix the website and work on plans for outreach just as an experiment in increasing bot-wallet use
trinque: by fix the website, I mean that it's currently written with #t as an audience, and if folks here were going to buy more #p services, they'd do so based whether BingoBoingo seems to be drinking again, not upon your website.
trinque: website needs to be aimed outward
trinque: I'll be out for a bit, bbl
mircea_popescu: trinque, all of this is quite reasonable. what worries me, specifically, is the (by now sadly well documented) process whereby danielpbarron / mod6 / phf / etc 1. stop talking "because busy working", then 2. stop reading and then 3 "inexplicably" start "having problems", all very "varied" and "impredictable" subjectively, but from outside all very fucking transparently the same one thing.
mircea_popescu: now, to take things apart : i don't think pizarro is sustainable as it stands. BingoBoingo 's been there for years now, and he's already showing the wear at the edges.
mircea_popescu: if you'd be interested in helping out on that front, it'll prolly be best if you actually get involved in the partnership outright. none of this "fix the website copy" "helping", erryone wants to do the "helping" of employees whereas republic needs independent men not wage slave wannabe's.
mircea_popescu: in any case itll need a firm committment to a) discussing all the problems b) thoroughly.
mircea_popescu: if it even can be salvaged anymore. but in any case if it continues as is the only possible result's pretty obvious, only the timeframe's perhaps dubious.
mircea_popescu: otherwise, you don't specifically need pizarro to do outreach. you can do outreach on your own, on whatever lines are appealing. trilema is displaying a sexual avenue, "building a harem" ; diana_coman 's younghands thing is sorta 2year community college thing, "come and learn the basics of computing for very reasonable tuition". there's nothing wrong with that.
mircea_popescu: nor is that any kind of an exhaustive list. build a 3d art studio if you fucking feel like it, hire two or twelve dozen +ev animators to make things. buy some real estate for rental/airbnb-ing and run the damned thing as your castle, buy a buncha cab medallions do that, pretty much ~anything~ can be it.
mircea_popescu: there's literally no limit in anyone's way and all i hear for the past month is butthurt over "abuse" "cults" "worship" etcetera. what the fuck already, whole idea's a) do something ; b) show people ; c) get ~useful~ feedback. this cycle ALWAYS worked to date, no exception, so the common mind response's to... stop engaging ? what, is failure such a delightful thing gotta SOMEHOW ensure it ?
mircea_popescu: nobody's YET -ev for engaging in the a-b-c. not even once. so wtf.
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo, wtf, seriously ? what, are you bored over there, what is it ?
BingoBoingo: Curiosity, nostalgia, and the late winter blahs beat the idea, grown faint over time, that I don't even enjoy drinking. Loading up on caffeine, water, and vitamins has me feeling much more like a person than when I woke up today.
mircea_popescu: incidentally, lobbes : as a purely off the cuff notion, if you feel like taking a trip to UY to evaluate whether "a new life" awaits for you there, we might be able to work something out!

asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: i also would like to find what it'd cost to widen the pipe. AND how much currently is eaten, and by whom. i have dark suspicion currently that we're dangerously low on pipe.
asciilifeform: i.e. it WILL have to be widened, and also possible that the 'all you can eat' model of divvying it up is not practical.

mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo, aite.

mircea_popescu: i'd have no problem advancing some cash for the purpose. you can go there for say a month, see if you can / want to make a life for yourself there.
mircea_popescu: on your end, one advantage is that indeed the expenses are significantly less than fucking boston. if you can manage to get employment remote, it'll give you a lot more free income than any of the carefully engineered to no tleave you anything us jobs
mircea_popescu: also, presuming you need a new gf, it is possible better material in uy than ma / nc
mircea_popescu: on my end, IF you actually like it there i guess we could start a little republican coven, buy a house and have more convenient anchoring.

lobbes: very true. at least I have the ability to think on such questions these days
lobbes: and I think I could actually manage to get a month to work remotely at current job; my co-worker for e.g. went for 4 weeks to his home in Israel and worked remotely, so wai couldn't I?
mircea_popescu: i couldn't tell you dood.
lobbes: no I know, it was rhetorical
BingoBoingo: lobbes: All any fiatists in Uruguay care about here is whether you are in "clearing" or not. If you pay your Uruguay bills, you stay out of clearing and all is good. You don't pay your Uruguay bills, you go in clearing and outer barrio sadness awaits.
mircea_popescu: wth is a clearing ?
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: It's the English word they stole to mean something. The way credit reporting works here for individuals, all they can say is whether the person in question is in default or not.
mircea_popescu: oh oh, i see.
BingoBoingo: Here they just randomly adopt English words and put attach wildly different meanings to them.
mircea_popescu: i rememeber
BingoBoingo: While shop can be a verb or noun in English, with shopping a clear conjugation of the verb shop... Here, shopping is the noun and WTF is a shop.
BingoBoingo: As the Peruana learns English she runs into many "Uruguayo pretends to know English" traps. She's still got quite a ways to go before getting a a key and being genesis'd into Republican personhood.

asciilifeform: ^ was actually the 1st nontrivial proggy asciilifeform wrote in ada, just prior to picking up ffa
asciilifeform: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/trilema/2019-08-24#1930756 << ftr, right nao it loox like : pg_dump nsalog | gzip > /home/nsabot/log_db.gz; and on dulap , eats <8sec . ( getting the output to other boxes, however... )
snsabot: Logged on 2019-08-24 14:19:48 mircea_popescu: lobbes, flatfile backup is one cp
asciilifeform: ( ~eating~ 1 of these, takes ~10min. cuz pg gotta regenerate the indices, naturally )
asciilifeform: afaik lobbes is the current champ in 'replicate asciilifeform's logger' , has working copy, and i expect will say moar later

mircea_popescu: in which i wonder whether BingoBoingo is actually named for the adriano celentano movie
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: comment in modqueue
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: lol, is that a primus ?!
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: smaller lighter thing.
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: No, but I'lll have to watch the movie now
diana_coman: as I totally forgot: I confirm that diana_alt was indeed me talking in here and in #o.
mircea_popescu: nicoleci, lol top keks.
mircea_popescu: in other subtle perfections, the dude who supervised installing my ac arranged for the condensation drip to go straight into my lovage bush
mircea_popescu: that thing is HAPPY
BingoBoingo: That's a win right there.
nicoleci: mircea_popescu, haha thanks & maybe he should get his own post, spread the word on lovage
snsabot: Logged on 2019-07-18 23:05:37 asciilifeform: in other lulzy orc tech: that lolconditioner apparently has even moar interesting misfeature : no drain. yes. exhaust fan has paddle that is supposed to throw water from condensate pan through the hot-end grille. (i.e. sounds at all times like running faucet. and , reportedly, guaranteed to grow black mold and eventually leak into room... )
asciilifeform: grr where was that classic photo of 'mp light bulb'
mircea_popescu: did you see the shots of fuck you we use cfc unit ?
asciilifeform: aha. but iirc was already the brominated cfc
asciilifeform: ( at least not isobutane ! tho )
mircea_popescu: no ?
asciilifeform: hrm can't seem to find ~that~ ac in o(1) either..
asciilifeform: ( thought it was in the 1st warsaw phototour but apparently not.. )
asciilifeform: r410a -- difluoromethane + pentafluoromethane, apparently. same as in my auto.
mircea_popescu: is that a bad thing ?
asciilifeform: afaik the least nasty of the faux-freons.
asciilifeform: ( tho -- unlike classical freon -- it does burn. )
mircea_popescu: supposedly more energy efficient than ye olde r22
asciilifeform: isobutane supposedly evenmoar efficient, in theory.
mircea_popescu: amusingly, r11/r12 still widely used even today
asciilifeform: classical freon.
mircea_popescu: not in ac (really useless for ac with modern tech), but for... polyurethane blowout
asciilifeform: interesting -- i'd have naively imagined that'd use n2 or other cheap unreactive gas
mircea_popescu: ikr ?
asciilifeform: possibly the refrigerative coefficient actually matters in the blowout
trinque: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/trilema/2019-08-24#1930608 << this is possible, but it wont be a good-money-after-bad thing, which is why I'm first yammering about what I want fixed, not throwing money.
snsabot: Logged on 2019-08-24 10:22:53 mircea_popescu: if you'd be interested in helping out on that front, it'll prolly be best if you actually get involved in the partnership outright. none of this "fix the website copy" "helping", erryone wants to do the "helping" of employees whereas republic needs independent men not wage slave wannabe's.
trinque: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/trilema/2019-08-24#1930613 << to be clear, I'm not butthurt at mircea_popescu, nor criticizing him. I was taking shots at folks speaking importantly while this afaik important piece of republican infrastructure doesn't look too healthy.
snsabot: Logged on 2019-08-24 10:31:24 mircea_popescu: there's literally no limit in anyone's way and all i hear for the past month is butthurt over "abuse" "cults" "worship" etcetera. what the fuck already, whole idea's a) do something ; b) show people ; c) get ~useful~ feedback. this cycle ALWAYS worked to date, no exception, so the common mind response's to... stop engaging ? what, is failure such a delightful thing gotta SOMEHOW ensure it ?
asciilifeform: trinque: your fixes are a++ and imho oughta be put in service asap.
trinque: have awstats on the site or anything?
asciilifeform: trinque: my current fixation is irons, we're fresh outta vacant irons.
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo when you wake up -- do we have site stats ?
asciilifeform: trinque while we're on subj of open problems, didja ever comment re http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/trilema/2019-07-24#1924558 ?
snsabot: Logged on 2019-07-24 12:01:18 asciilifeform: and atm 'back to chalkboard' re how to answer it
asciilifeform: asciilifeform attempted frontal attack of ^ problem, but broke teeth, 0 to show for it.
trinque: I mean, my inner emulated asciilifeform says there's no such thing as isolated sessions on shared hardware
trinque: moreover are there enough customers that care?
asciilifeform: trinque: was thinking of vandalism-isolation, rather than cryptologic.
trinque: could just use the linux "namespaces" thing
asciilifeform: 1 hoses machine, n-1 remaining -- will care.
asciilifeform: trinque: the namespaces thing does 0 against kernel privescs. which are ~dime/dozen.
trinque: just depends on where you want the bar
asciilifeform: atm bar is set scandalously low. pretty much anyone can format hdd (or subtler vandalism) of a shared linux box he has any form of acct on, with week or 2 of effort.
asciilifeform: and, moreover, leave 0 footprint of just-which user set off the boojum.
trinque: no real proposal here other than to do what others do.
trinque: that doesn't help you differentiate much.
asciilifeform: i fatwa'd 'xen', 'qemu', etc.
trinque: ever considered offering specific services rather than commodity server boxen?
asciilifeform: reliably good for 5-6 lethal 0day erry month, these
asciilifeform: trinque: atm there is 'wp service'. can't presently think what else could offer
trinque: my dear old dad never once asked me whether he needed a server, but he has asked me whether he should have a VPN
trinque: I'm not addressing whether he actually needs a VPN, but how hard is it to take p crypto and make a VPN?
asciilifeform: lol at least not asked if needs 'keybase' yet..
trinque: laughed my ass off when he asked me whether some shitcoin was any good. at least he asks!
asciilifeform: trinque: principal difficulty re 'vpn' is 1) it's a fundamentally dumb product 2) attracts nuisances which reliably draw fire ( spam, frontal baitings of usg , etc ) 3) reqs ridiculous amt of pipe
trinque: I'm curious whether there's a market for the VPN item. gets the republican network layer paid for, if so.
