lobbes: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/trilema/2019-09-06#1934071 << about to head to bed, but tomorrow morning I'm gonna do some deep log spelunking and investigating and report findings in a blog post.

mircea_popescu: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/trilema/2019-09-05#1933961 << it occurs to me this passed unformalized, and it'd be a pity. so, the mp theory of work-conditions-and-productivity-for-intellectuals :
snsabot: Logged on 2019-09-05 19:53:23 asciilifeform: forward voltage lol
mircea_popescu: work conditions (understood as available toolset, and available paradigm, driving respectively a physical (ie, time-cost, perceived as pain) and mental (also perceived as pain) cost sum to a scalar describing the "painfulness" of the workplace.
mircea_popescu: call that P. meanwhile output, or productivity, is expressed as a different scalar, call it W.
mircea_popescu: the theory says, that for any context there exists in all cases a P-threshold epsilon, such that if P>e W=0 whereas if P<e, W=q, where q is a quantified amount of productivity (because yes, W is quantified, like low-scale energies).
mircea_popescu: that is part one. part two, is that for further reductions of P, W scales superlinearily. in my practice to date, P=e/2 drives W = q^5 approx, like air fucking friction.
mircea_popescu: this theory, for isntance, explains why there's no college outside of say that-one-place-in-mass, or that-one-place between frisco and san jose : the P in, say, chicago is >e.
mircea_popescu: more generally, also explains why no rembrandts : P over e.
snsabot: Logged on 2016-11-07 11:53:31 mircea_popescu: recall the "where are the rembrandts then" argument ? the us fails to produce a philosopher worth the mention every other decade ; athens managed that much on 1/1000th the population.
mircea_popescu: it is, obviously, entirely false to imagine that pP is the only factor in P ; mP probably started overwhelming it in importance with the modern age, driving the important point here : this theory ~can actually be used as a timeline-substitute~, replace time with P-at-that-time.
mircea_popescu: historical phenomenology suddenly starts making a lot more sense -- because yes, history is, was and will forever fucking remain the story of great men ; and what great men do with their lives and consequently the world they own and everyone else just inhabits... well, that's a story of P an
mircea_popescu: d w.
mircea_popescu: there's further implications ; but, to fit the point back to narrow interest : saying the tools are already there is not even stupid, it's entirely besides the point. the only effectual question is, "has the lowest possible P in theory been actually realised in practice".
snsabot: Logged on 2019-09-06 04:34:33 spyked: magemagick (what I believe mp-wp uses currently?) or gimp batch processer; regardless of what is to be used, the tools *are already there*, it's the user's problem how or what he uses. I for one don't wanna use web interface for photo processing, nor did I ever intend to add this to thetarpit, nor would I stop anyone from adding them if they wish
mircea_popescu: everything else's just self-harmful wank.
mircea_popescu: this, then, is also why A. the republic is so mingbogglingly successful ; and also B. why so limited in scope.
mircea_popescu: as to A, let it be clearly stated for reviweable record, and let anyone who manages to take his head out of his own ass verify or challenge this plain statement as best he can :
mircea_popescu: if you call productivity time debit D, D = P/t, it's self-evident that not since the early days of csail have such Ds been seen on planet earth.
mircea_popescu: the ~reason~ is that not since the same spot have such Ps been seen.
mircea_popescu: the traditional view, driven by high medieval practice, is to regard work~load~ as the dissuasive factor, some guy who might think himself a shoemaker may re-consider if confronted with a pile of shoe leather waiting to be shoed stretching twelve acres and reaching into the skies.
mircea_popescu: this is ~completely~ spurious. the workload has ~entirely and absolutely nothing~ to do with anything. people ~will~ engage just as gladly in "impossible tasks" as in "easy tasks", the driving consideration is P, not "what quantity of W is '''required''' to '''see results'''" or anything like that.
mircea_popescu: (meh, i obviously mean D = W/t).
mircea_popescu: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/trilema/2019-08-29#1931863 << keks, so what, i been talking of harems &c for a decade+, yet peeps been just assuming i'm fantasizing or something ?

mircea_popescu: anyway, biosacks only need names if they're about to log here. both hanbot an' nicoleci are on, and so far what you lot wanna use them for is rather punching bags, from experience, so i don't see the urgency in naming anyone else.
mircea_popescu: (though i suppose it's a wonderment whether anyone thought eg http://trilema.com/2018/lord-mp-of-tmsr-and-the-plebeian-princess-club/ similarily depicts "camera shy hanbot". in duplicate -- one's been tanning for a half year.

mircea_popescu: ikr.
mircea_popescu: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/trilema/2019-09-06#1934271 << or, for that matter, pulling revenue at all. the fundamental problem with socialist "money" aka scrip is that... well, inca prints and distributes.
snsabot: Logged on 2019-09-06 21:39:25 trinque: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/trilema/2019-09-05#1933879 << the fact of the matter is that there are very few folks pulling revenue from inside the republic.

mircea_popescu: istence detector.
mircea_popescu: as the more-honest-us aptly points out, http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/trilema/2019-09-06#1934201 ; for everyone else there's http://trilema.com/2017/the-universal-plan-for-wealth/ and not much else (rather : exactly NOTHING else).

BingoBoingo: And thusly Uruguay signs road belt plans with China while Argentina sucks all the liver spotted NY cocks
BingoBoingo: circumcised of course
mircea_popescu: in any case, the argument is utterly fucking broken. "get out ; now" "oh but mp, can i stay longer ? it's totally worth it, make so much $$$" "huh, i guess..." "but mp... make no $$$, whay!" "because you're fucked in the head. goto 1."
mircea_popescu: "can't commit" "okay..." "why's nothing happening ?" "duh ?" "nofair, should have way around eat+keep cake" "ummkay."
diana_coman: http://logs.ossasepia.com/log/trilema/2019-09-06#1934318 - IF it's so good, I'd gladly learn ANY martian.
ossabot: Logged on 2019-09-06 22:16:07 asciilifeform: i'm not about to ask folx to learn it tho ( asciilifeform in fact quite fond of forth, and used extensively. but i also recognize that to most people utterly 'martian' )
mircea_popescu: the matter SIMPLY CAN NOT BE IGNORED : if back in 2017, ie the very month that article came out, joe bloe took out the 20-50k in debt he could and liquidated the 20-50k in assets that he could, converting it to bitcoin at a monthly average $1k, he'd be looking now at either 400k to 1mn in cold hard cash, or else something like 1-1.5mn worth of liquidated assets, if he sold during the peak. (and not AT the peak, for 1.76mn
mircea_popescu: or so).
mircea_popescu: now, who the fuck made that half million in these two years, "pulling revenue" ?
mircea_popescu: "oh, but mp, we didn't know". OF COURSE you fucking didn't know. what you DID know, however, today as in 2017 as in 2015 as for a while, is that the zone's the zone. what the fuck's gonna happen in there ?
BingoBoingo: told a simple folk this Wednesday "If all you take you Argentina is your plasic card you're going to get your asshole resized." Today, audible incoming "Why are the Argentine ATMs charging me 10 USD to take out pesos"...
BingoBoingo: Fuck you, Gales does cash advance loans on Gringo debit in UY, between Gales and any given Chinese restaurant in BA... how many non-Governmental Ladrones can there be
mircea_popescu: and even with the fucking example! that chick, she was the vp for hr with satan's own blue chip in charge of making airport satanism! YOU SAW THIS HAPPEN, much like linkedin saw this happen.
mircea_popescu: and, exactly like the dumb strippers of yore, you... explained it away, rite ? (for bonus lulz points, in a manner already documented on trilema, to boot!)
mircea_popescu: well wut da fuck! it works IF you work it, is teh expression. what else is there ?
BingoBoingo: studying the formal presentation on productivity
mircea_popescu: she's been in here, available, 90% of the time wasted during the intervening year. anyone had anything to ask, about easily the most interesting thing that happened ~on a personal level~, at least since bb actually got the fuck out / mocky tiptoed the sea ?
mircea_popescu: good thing we talk of flaks, that's important. comparatively, i can't argue, WAY yhe fuck more important. hurr.
mircea_popescu: nobody's giving away halfmillions for "knowing how to install linux from scratch" is the sad, if you wish, but irrespectively perdurant fact of the matter.
mircea_popescu: persistence won't change this.
mircea_popescu: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/trilema/2019-09-06#1934283 << and i still don't think there's anything wrong with it. website offering search box not necessity. if bot does, all is well.
snsabot: Logged on 2019-09-06 21:44:57 trinque: the IRC-for-input and www-for-output split was contemplated in an old thread. I still like it
mircea_popescu: html is, we insistently remind, A STATELESS PROTOCOL. no "logins". no cookies. no bullshit.
mircea_popescu: the url params in particular are most confounding, because the concept as commonly encountered in the wilderness inhabited by wildmen actually fuses two VERY distinct and entirely distinguishable things.
mircea_popescu: thing 1 is like http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/trilema/2019-09-02#1933212 ; thing 2 is like http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log-search?q=%23select&chan=trilema
snsabot: Logged on 2019-09-02 16:35:05 diana_coman: I've finally got around to making the changes from http://trilema.com/2019/proper-html-linking-the-crisis-the-solution-the-resolution-conclusion/ and it works wonderfully! e.g. http://ossasepia.com/reference-code-shelf/?b=Logotron&e=#select
mircea_popescu: the idea's only one of these is correct, the other's madness.
mircea_popescu: yes, from inside the madness it "seems" like "oh but what's the difference". there's a fucking difference.
mircea_popescu: and this is why ~my~ description of cache reads as it does, and so following.
snsabot: Logged on 2019-08-14 02:15:03 mp_en_viaje: in general, fwis, it's ~always much better to do the "use apache for threading and fs-as-cache" model than anything else. but then again i'm not the hacker, don't let me keep you from your destiny.
mircea_popescu: that wasn't an ~idle~, throwaway comment, btw. "don't let me keep you from your destiny" means exactly what it says : that there's a way we know things do actually work, and then there's a history of the republic to date -- it consists of a lulzy/depressing but in any case unrelenting march of people trying to do anything-but-that, everywhich way and all the time.
mircea_popescu: not intentionally an' not deliberately and not awaredly nor am i out for heads. but the situation is indeed like the case where someone just discovered the impact of filth on medicine, and everyone (by which we mean the top whatever %) understood what the theory is, and for their merits gets now to struggle with expellas issues forever.
mircea_popescu: (to be perfectly clear : http://ossasepia.com/reference-code-shelf/?b=Logotron&e=#select is what i meant by "thing 1".
mircea_popescu: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/trilema/2019-09-06#1934288 << you're not thinking this through. what's a page, <100kb ? what's the daily output, 100 of these ? you're comitting to 10mb / day thereby ? ie a hour's blockchain ? this too much to ask for the republic ?
snsabot: Logged on 2019-09-06 21:47:39 asciilifeform: trinque: and then you gotta delete these ? what if you want the resulting link to remain clickable ?
mircea_popescu: don't think in terms "trillion files will lay eggs". will not -- that's why it's in chan. why not take the opportunity to support the republic, specifically ?

mircea_popescu: not to mention -- we actually have redundancy archival process, yes ? if link ends up in chan, link also ends up archived, yes ?
mircea_popescu: if you actually, inconceivably but actually, start pruning, can just as well do it as "will keep last n searches that weren

mircea_popescu: and, of course, can meter / charge for usage! a bitcent at a time, deedbot won't mind.
mircea_popescu: and so on! WE HAVE AL LTHIS SHIT!!!
mircea_popescu: that we made. to be used!
mircea_popescu: nobody else has anything even REMOTELY like it. nobody.
mircea_popescu: there's 0 reason we even need to give a shit about hunchenbacktoot / rest of heathen world. people pay thousands/month to lease space in "seattle tech incubator", it's ~free here.
mircea_popescu: no fuckin gincubator has even REMOTELY the infrastructure.
mircea_popescu: so i'd say ~time to get crackin',
diana_coman: I have been seriously pondering if I need for YoungHands to actually get a physical space to call "incubator" /similar since apparently that's the magic word that wards off evil or something.
BingoBoingo: God no, I haven't seen a startup incubator that doesn't smell like the sump in my HS locker room.
BingoBoingo: Maybe some other label, but not incubator. At least not incubator in a frost free climate
diana_coman: BingoBoingo: lolz; it's the "familiar" word for students though, basically pattern-matches what they expect, to have them cross the threshold (so that in all probability I have to kick 99% out after that, but such is filtering by def)
diana_coman: in any case, my puzzle there is whether it's worth making even such concession at all; I'm normally not inclined and I'd say it's on them if they are dumb enough to not go in because it doesn't say incubator;
BingoBoingo: Most of the other folks I met here that share a common language with me pattern match Buenos Aires=Bigger=Better
diana_coman: but onth since I'm filtering the sea, I want some place where all the sea goes through
BingoBoingo: I don't see what's wrong with calling it a college and graduating it to University once 1+ graduates have the credentials to propose new faculties to the college
diana_coman: fwiw for me incubator -> 1day chicks and insufferable heat
mircea_popescu: diana_coman, i dunno, sounds very stupidappeasing to me personally. but... your show.
mircea_popescu: why the fuck do we want a buncha patternmatchers anyway ?
mircea_popescu: so they can grumble barely audibly until they built up enough mass to "fight unfairity" or whatever dumb shit ?
diana_coman: mircea_popescu: myeah; I'd rather not do it; my q is whether anyone sees any reason it would be worth it and apparently the answer is no (phew, I'm glad it is no, even)
BingoBoingo: Here Incubator signals roughly the same thing cowork does, but in an older building, and without any ongoing operations anchoring the arrangement
mircea_popescu: if you fuck them.
mircea_popescu: otherwise... i can't imagine why the fuck.
mircea_popescu: diana_coman, his idea might be good, actually. what's the uk requirements for starting a private college ?
diana_coman: to have marked them as pattern matchers, that was the crux of it.
diana_coman: mircea_popescu: I'll have to look into it properly and come back
mircea_popescu: plox ty.
diana_coman: and yes, I'd much rather do that!
mircea_popescu: maybe that's the right move here, transform the badly mismanaged foundation, have it start a college.
mircea_popescu: something's gotta be done about that, too, i dun recall right off but there's however many six figure dubaloos stuck there since last decade
diana_coman: I'd love to.
BingoBoingo: Anyways if there were 40+ warm bodies and a desire to stot I'd suggest https://archive.is/uYcck
BingoBoingo: Any less than 18 and no way a cleaning rotation is covering that place
mircea_popescu: haha old building, huh. those can be nightmareish if poorly built.
mircea_popescu: dja know about building BingoBoingo ?
diana_coman: and esp poor match when computers and networks are involved really
mircea_popescu: holy sshit wut, 4.5mn ?! for 1200 sqm ? baby, in romania ~same is maaaybe 400k.
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: I have only Home Depot knowlede of how buildings age which overlaps poorly with the local stock of buildings here
mircea_popescu: AND recent construction. and concrete / cellular autoclaved filler / etc. good stuff.
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: Cursed bulding. retarded past occupants as per: "La propiedad estuvo alquilada hasta el 2016 por el Banco IDRC (International Divelopment Reserch Center) entidad Canadiense que hizo todas las prestaciones para los niveles de calidad que este tipo de empresa necesita, tanto a nivel de seguridad como de comodidades para trabajar, respetando el Patrimonio Histórico de la casa principal."
mircea_popescu: nuts.
BingoBoingo: Not a great location either
BingoBoingo: Great location if all you care about is pointing all the antennas at the Spanish embassy, but otherwise... residential desert
BingoBoingo: Homes on every side
mircea_popescu: lotta that 1950s-80s warmbody storage zones in south america
mircea_popescu: i expect they're going to incrementally improve on trotskysm cinematruck / rooseveltism "uber eats", just have a truck visit with supplies weekly.
BingoBoingo: Filtering out stuff like that place is a part of the notes cleaning. The other part is shit that was at an interesting price point for the location selling.
mircea_popescu: for everyone else, it'd be a concentration camp. but for the inmates -- it's home.
BingoBoingo: lol
BingoBoingo: Here's another way the fuck too proud pricing on a potential "INSTITUTO CULTURAL O DE ENSEÑANZA": https://archive.is/2lmyw
BingoBoingo: The other common trap here on listing prices is they'll list what they want to walk away with and paying that leaves a balance with the banco hipotecario
mircea_popescu: wut!

mircea_popescu: me sitting around all day playing about takes a lot of fucking work.
diana_coman: http://logs.ossasepia.com/log/trilema/2019-09-07#1934570 - after a first look, it seems to me that it all depends on the degree to which one cares about "the system"; personally I don't care and don't even want to make the venture "caring" but to know what I'm looking for: are their notions (eg of "degrees") of any interest at all?
ossabot: Logged on 2019-09-07 04:33:10 mircea_popescu: diana_coman, his idea might be good, actually. what's the uk requirements for starting a private college ?
mircea_popescu: diana_coman, my thinking is that if you don't apply for bezzle, then it could perhaps be lightweight, easy to get.
mircea_popescu: the idea is to exploit the socialism poverty hole. all sorta community colleges / 2 year technical colleges in ruralia would take ~anyone, including ~any soccer mom with a degree as a teacher.
diana_coman: mircea_popescu: there are 2 aspects: 1. whether you want to apply for bezzle 2. whether you want "recognised status"
mircea_popescu: could just as well make one of those and make it small but excellent. use it to terribly disturb the statu quo, because it obviously goes against everything they've tacitly agreed upon
mircea_popescu: what's the latter about ?
diana_coman: to cite from gov.uk "if your degree is not from an officially recognised UK university or college, there's no guarantee it'll count when you're looking for a job" ; i.e. whether you are within the system or not, the way I read it.
mircea_popescu: well, if we're not getting that, then we could just make a college by deedbot.
diana_coman: basically: whether one has their stamp; I'd rather NOT have it tbh.
mircea_popescu: then you already have a college ?
diana_coman: pretty much; the only missing bit is a physical building.
mircea_popescu: the idea is to fuck them up, not to politely ignore them.
diana_coman: hm, I can see that point too
mircea_popescu: you ain't getting a physical building without status, though, what sense'd that make ?
diana_coman: I have trouble reasoning in terms of status coming from them, that's where I stumbled
diana_coman: so let me see if I get the idea right:
diana_coman: the point is to be able to give degrees they can't ignore/wave away , for stuff which is ours and as such probably mostly at odds with their ideas?
mircea_popescu: diana_coman, the idea is to have the #1 college in the uk for whatever specialty of your choice simultaneously a) 0 tuition ; b) "we don't take your govt scrip here" ie off their bezzle circuit and
mircea_popescu: c) we don't take your elder sons/merit-washed eromenoi, fuck off, this is only for nazi kids.

mircea_popescu: sure.
mircea_popescu: still, this is definitely a vulnerable / sore spot in the imperial "clothing for nude emperors" pile.
mircea_popescu: could as well exploit it as not.
diana_coman: I'm at least curious about it for sure; and somehow over the years, no matter where and how I turned around, sooner or later (usually sooner) I *still* end up touching on the educational sector, what can I say more.
diana_coman: so I'll look up further and figure it out re recognised status and all that too.
diana_coman: http://logs.ossasepia.com/log/trilema/2019-09-07#1934724 - fwiw I think this is actually a reasonably good description - I tend to politely ignore, yes.

snsabot: Logged on 2019-09-04 11:18:52 asciilifeform: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/trilema/2019-09-04#1933632 << i'ma move from emacs to 21st c. lispm. or, to grave. tertium non datur.
mircea_popescu: it's complicated, being an alf.
asciilifeform: what i wish i could do, is to catch moor and hang him upside down and connect to 220v, and get him to confess how he got vlsi fabbed w/out the 'mandatory' winblows mask liquishit.
asciilifeform: but 'if wishes were horses...'(tm)(r)
mircea_popescu: he last did this back when symbolics was a thing.
mircea_popescu: not last week, not last year, not last decade. long long ago
mircea_popescu: in a practically useless way for entirely irrelevant by now purposes etc.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: lol 1994
mircea_popescu: a ok. ONLY five five year plans ago
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i spent ~decade e.g. knowing about ada but avoiding cuz 'dun like'. it was stupid.
mircea_popescu: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/trilema/2019-09-07#1934889 << for the obvious fucking reason! rocker goes to mountain, "oh, i wish i could live here" "really bitch ? and what about tp ?" "oh, i'd use leaves!!!" after a week of wiping ass on pine cones... ready to grumbingly but grudgingly hit the first walmart
snsabot: Logged on 2019-09-07 14:01:44 diana_coman: so why only this limited use?
diana_coman: bwahahaha & poor pine cones.
asciilifeform: sometimes the 'dun like' item is the only working tool known, to the point that if you try to redesign it from scratch, will end up with ~same thing but moar inept.
mircea_popescu: no but it's so PURE!!!
mircea_popescu: and SIMPLE!
asciilifeform: as mircea_popescu knows full well, nuffin is 'simple' on pc. but there's degrees of bulk.
mircea_popescu: "yes, mutha, and PAINFUL!" "oh we dont' talk about that in this fantasyworld"
snsabot: Logged on 2019-09-07 01:04:05 mircea_popescu: there's further implications ; but, to fit the point back to narrow interest : saying the tools are already there is not even stupid, it's entirely besides the point. the only effectual question is, "has the lowest possible P in theory been actually realised in practice".
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform, i have no objection to making the future tmsr iron run forth, as things stnad right now.
mircea_popescu: still doesn't make chuck moore's putative 1990s vlsi-er anything other than php. because what did it do, 15 cells ? o noes, centimetre process ? HARDWORK
asciilifeform: possibly i did an epicly inept job in this thread. but was trying to say 'i dun like forth -- but may be condemned to it by The Essences(tm)(r)'
mircea_popescu: could probably write a better router than whatever the fuck that was in bash
diana_coman: asciilifeform: but exactly because of http://logs.ossasepia.com/log/trilema/2019-09-07#1934910 I just can't get the idea of "don't like" when asked re forth
ossabot: Logged on 2019-09-07 14:27:33 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i spent ~decade e.g. knowing about ada but avoiding cuz 'dun like'. it was stupid.
mircea_popescu: BY EMPLOYING LOOKUP TABLES
asciilifeform: if tomorrow mircea_popescu orders 'boot me up pc in asm into sumthing i can send packets from' it'll be in a forth.
diana_coman: obviously and proven the "don't like" is not good so ...
asciilifeform: diana_coman: i can't speak for erryone, but found that ~whole of education consists in swallowing 'not likes' and ~then~ thinking. rather than how kid comes from cradle, 'i dun like, won't think'
mircea_popescu: nothing wrong with that!
mircea_popescu: the extent of my lambasting was re dead bones fame, no more. i'm not impugning random lang here.
diana_coman: asciilifeform: since you state it, I'm sure it's precisely that for you; and fwiw I'm sure you are not the only one in this either.
asciilifeform: i recall when 1st time picked up a 30kg sledge hammer. 'uhh how do people work with this.' after day or 2 of driving in stakes, felt entirely ordinary.
asciilifeform: e.g. ada was ~identical experience.
asciilifeform: speaking of hammers,
asciilifeform: bbl:meat chores
mircea_popescu: i'd have expected that be "speaking of stakes"
snsabot: Logged on 2016-04-01 12:23:55 asciilifeform: is on the spin cycle of the day's stake, when the barbs come out
mircea_popescu: and speaking of false religions and extremely popular delusions : 𒆪𒋾𒀀𒂍𒈗𒊏
mircea_popescu: that's a name, in cuneiform, of a sort of akkadian lenin in the assyrian empire. he butchered the previous royal fambly and greatly improved the efficiency of the bureaucracy.
mircea_popescu: the name, however, translates as "my faith is in the son of the eshara". that'd be ashur, of course.
mircea_popescu: the only problem with this very specifically identycal jesus of the pre-xtian sectarian disturbances in the assyrian empire is that... well ? guy lived 8th century BEFORE the supposed appearance of... the son of
mircea_popescu: exact same formalisms, it was like a sorta joke / toast, in the akkadia of 3000 years ago, "oh, son of god herpy derp"
lobbes: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/trilema/2019-09-07#1934609 << ftr I am seriously considering bidding on this, but first I want to be clear on if I am understanding correctly all portions of the ask. I'll bake a post tonight breaking this down / asking smart questions for clarity

lobbes: first though, I'm still log spelunking re: bot reconnect. Namely what is taking me so long here is that I went to check apache access log (to rule out a ddos) only to discover... it ain't logging anymore! I suspect I nuked a crucial module somewhere when I was trying to get the proxy stuff working

mircea_popescu: vos ? da fuck is this familiarity.
trinque: http://paste.deedbot.org/?id=ud5L << bada boom
trinque: thinking of turning this into a little wp plugin. useful?
mircea_popescu: http://paste.deedbot.org/?id=k_KE << heh
mircea_popescu: useful.
mircea_popescu: could it just be alphanum tho. no point doing _ etc
mircea_popescu: 37^4 = 1874161, no way anyone's doing 2mn pastes/week
trinque: sure, that works. I just reached for base64 as per last thread
trinque: if we give utterly not a shit re: enumerability, can be serial int
mircea_popescu: we do give.
trinque: alrighty
mircea_popescu: previous set had 5 digits. i was thinking of saving the typing... but are you saying 2mn too narrow, ennumerable ?
trinque: I'd have to stress test the thing to say, but response time over here is about a half second. ignoring parallelism 172800 req per day (assuming pastes expire after 24hr)
lobbes: iirc previous paste-o-tron expired 'em after a week
trinque: > Purges pastes older than a week every twenty four hours.
trinque: you are correct
diana_coman: http://logs.ossasepia.com/log/trilema/2019-09-07#1934492 - asciilifeform , as far as I see, there's a bug at setting the time_last_conn at a reconnection, hence the wrong result of uptime; irc() method is missing the "global time_last_conn" when it sets the value so the set is lost.
ossabot: Logged on 2019-09-07 03:06:30 diana_coman: http://logs.ossasepia.com/log/trilema/2019-09-06#1934178 - did not test but apparently bot tested it so I'll have at least one data point to look at when I get to it.
diana_coman: as to *what* caused the reconnect, I can't say I know exactly: the bot's log duly reports a "listen socket error, disconnecting", followed by the expected reconnect but I can't see / don't know where to look, possibly for anything more informative.
diana_coman: in any case, atm the bot's uptime command will in fact report "time since last run of the bot" rather than since last connection
diana_coman: since it was quiet otherwise anyway, I made the change and restarted ossabot so I'll see the effect @ next socket error, I suppose
lobbes: diana_coman: this was what I found too re: logs (listen socket error). Paste for reference: http://paste.deedbot.org/?id=2qou
lobbes: I'll make the change on my end as well re: the time_last_conn (ty for the info diana_coman)
lobbes: I also am not sure what caused the reconnect (hence my tangent into the apache logs). However I finally got my access logs working again so I'll have those available the next time it disconnects at least
lobbes: (ftr, the cause of my apache access logs not functioning was indeed that I nuked a module in my attempts to get proxying working. Specifically, I nuked the "mod_log_config" and "mod_logio".. oy)
lobbes: !!up ericbot
deedbot: ericbot voiced for 30 minutes.
lobbes: !e uptime
ericbot: lobbes: time since my last reconnect : 0d 0h 1m
lobbes: ok, I've got diana_coman's fix applied and have also synced my logs across all chans
lobbes: e.g. my #t log's 1934984 = alf's and so on
snsabot: Logged on 2019-09-07 20:38:33 ericbot: lobbes: time since my last reconnect : 0d 0h 1m
ericbot: Logged on 2019-09-07 23:55:22 ericbot: lobbes: time since my last reconnect : 0d 0h 1m
lobbes: the "raw dump" knob works splendidly btw! was as simple as deleting from loglines table by index and eating where not synced
lobbes: I'm off to eat some food, then make a "standing up a logotron" guide from compiled notes
