asciilifeform: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/trilema/2019-09-10#1935444 << not accurate description of thread.
snsabot: Logged on 2019-09-10 23:50:19 trinque: asciilifeform: and you know, to take the other side of the leucosys thing, this is mircea_popescu's hall. he didn't ban anyone from yours, or mine.
asciilifeform: trinque: orig. contention, which i disputed. phf was 1 of the very, very few people whose hands grew from right place, and it will take very long time to replace , not even speaking of the full functionality of the orig. bot ( still not had ) but of e.g. the vpatch viewer, which i use erry fucking day of the week
snsabot: Logged on 2019-09-09 05:21:49 mircea_popescu: imagine, all this flurry of exciting new development could have been occuring in 2017, if i had the sense to kick phf out on his rear in 2017, rather than let him sit his dumb ass on us for two years.
asciilifeform: trinque: obv. mircea_popescu's (and for that matter anyone's) ratings are b/w him and odin. but imho to present the disappearance of phf as some kinda win, is disingenuous at best .
asciilifeform: trinque: 2-3 moar 'wins' like this and what will be left , will be mircea_popescu writing his memoirs.
trinque: why doesn't asciilifeform have a relationship with phf independent of mircea_popescu ?
asciilifeform: trinque: cuz we're both recluses .
trinque: I quite like phf ftr, on the basis of history, but I don't think that's the point
asciilifeform: trinque: ftr i don't even know what did phf in. (it wasn't the ski mishap, obv. but some chronic degeneration)
asciilifeform: trinque: and also ftr i have nfi where Framedragger, esthlos, went.
asciilifeform: it is very easy to say 'they were weak, fughet'em'. but fact remains, they were not replaced , of yet .
trinque: asciilifeform can remember or forget whomever he wants, no?
trinque: if republic doesn't mean "fuck you, I'll tell you who my friends are" in all directions, wtf, lets skip right back to empire?
asciilifeform: trinque: for my part, i remember'em as folx who did 1st class work, of the kind i suspect nobody born after '90 is able to do, full stop. but then ran outta steam. (why, i do not know.)
asciilifeform: trinque: fwiw i suspect they 'ran' to bottle, rather than 'to empire'.
trinque: I mean, it's empire-shaped thinking to say mircea_popescu should consult with you and whomever else on who he likes.
asciilifeform: trinque: from where this implication ?
trinque: or you idem
trinque: iirc mircea_popescu met phf irl, didn't like him, and that was that
asciilifeform: trinque: my contention wasn't that it was somehow work for mircea_popescu to nurse'em back to health (how?)
asciilifeform: if i knew why some folx are good for a year, others -- 2, 3, etc. i promised, would say.
asciilifeform: but i aint about to nod to 'x was always trotskyist, we were mistaken from day 1 to involve him' logic.
trinque: it's unfortunate no phf<->asciilifeform remains absent mp, such that this could be demonstrated otherwise.
trinque: but I don't know if my point is coming across.
trinque: it's what I hear in the admonitions about blogging, ftr.
asciilifeform: trinque: for that matter, there ain't a spare mircea_popescu either. observe that nobody else knows how to strip the valence electrons from folx like phf and make'em usefully react. none of the burnouts are doing anyffin worth note in e.g. #a .
asciilifeform: brb,meat
trinque: tried telling them to do anything?
trinque: when they line up quietly like that they're either jacking off to you, or waiting for you to tell them what to do, or both!
lobbes: http://logs.ericbenevides.com/log/trilema/2019-09-11#1935472 << nah, it came down to what the WoT is all about ("how well are you able to answer questions about X person if asked?"). Nobody could answer as to where he was when needed. Hence MP's whole "nickel's worth of clues" article (the title was apt).
ericbot: Logged on 2019-09-11 03:57:39 trinque: iirc mircea_popescu met phf irl, didn't like him, and that was that
lobbes: This doesn't even mean the same thing as "not a good guy" or "arms don't grow from right organ" in my book. Simply a WoT matter
lobbes: there's been plenty of people in my meatlife who I like a great deal; enjoy their company. But I also wouldn't trust them with xyz. The WoT is individual to individual for a reason. One person may be able to answer questions better about another than another. The tendons between mp and phf weakened, but this ain't a republic of one after all. Phf could resurface in asciilifeform's castle tomorrow and
lobbes: continue to do great work for the next 10 years for all we know. (I hope he does for that matter)
asciilifeform: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/trilema/2019-09-11#1935481 << matter of fact, did. for instance when phf reappeared, told him to genesis his logotron. guess what was result ?

asciilifeform: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/trilema/2019-09-11#1935482 << iirc mircea_popescu warned about this (and apparently was right) : the coupla folx in #a, already would not do when mircea_popescu asked ; why would they do when asciilifeform asks, who isn't famous hero, has no millions, no harems, nothing in particular that forces recalcitrant folx to stand up. so far the output of the #a people is the predicted 0.

asciilifeform: bbl,bed.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform, gotta also take it easy, if one were to judge "the output" of #t on the basis of its however many first weeks...
mircea_popescu: for YEARS /me did not give a shit, #t hosted club of (romanian-speaking, as it happens, but of no consequence past that coincidence), exactly same automatons working the same way getting the same results
mircea_popescu: ~all that crawls out of cunt these days is anal children, like it or not, pretend how you would.
mircea_popescu: here they sat, same #trilema as today, and preened, like these do. nothing came of it, and then one day i showed up and kicked them all out.
mircea_popescu: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/trilema/2019-09-10#1935439 << keks.
snsabot: Logged on 2019-09-10 23:37:11 trinque: damn, now it has to be good.
mircea_popescu: but yes, the ~one~ good (unintentional, and unaware, but neither of this matters) 2nd order effect of attempted socialism is that in the mid phase it shook the complacency out of people.
mircea_popescu: the obverse of that "oh, stalin got tupolev back out of dungeon" coin is that BEFORE getting itno dungeon, cis-tupolev, the whole half million of them, had ONE DAMNED GOOD reason to get out of bed in the morning. "holy shit it's gonna happen to me", terror works. on short stretches at a time, but works.
mircea_popescu: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/trilema/2019-09-10#1935442 << tjhere's a thread re micro/macro economy and a discussion of money in its dual aspect somewhere but i can't take the time to find it for you right nao, leaving for hunedoara castle in about five minutes. we can revisit this in weekend though, ping me.
snsabot: Logged on 2019-09-10 23:44:57 trinque: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/trilema/2019-09-07#1934680 << the lever here is the increasing purchasing power of btc or something else? and if it's to remain mp's business and not mine, that's fine too.
mircea_popescu: when you switch from discussing "my getting enough to eat tomorrow" to "here's this island, manage it", all the tools keep the names get different powers.
mircea_popescu: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/trilema/2019-09-10#1935445 << yes, and look how beautifully sabotage-y ~highly intelligent~ idiotic misbehaviour actually is : if i wasn't me, but slightly less of a me such as to not notice the problem and get carried away emotionally, we'd have a fine problem on our hands, through having ruined an important pilla
snsabot: Logged on 2019-09-10 23:53:00 lobbes: iirc he made a point that he doesn't read other castle's logs for this reason (so as to not embitter the grounds there)
mircea_popescu: r for the world early on, when "nobody" knew what's what.
mircea_popescu: most groups tryna challenge the system of idiocy die this way, because early on they destroy some tiny thing which is actually critcal for long term survival, unawares.
mircea_popescu: the problem with embryos -- you never know which set of literally three cells will be the eye and also the only shot you get at ever having eyes.
mircea_popescu: and to properly bolster the fundaments of the foregoing terror -- it DPOES NOT MATTER whether one actually was, deliberately, working for the enemy. from my pov, phf is not "merely an idiot", but very well saboteur anon describes NOT because he actually is, but because... again, guy found with smoking gun next to dead president is hanged, [http://logs.nosu
mircea_popescu: chlabs.com/log/trilema/2017-12-17#1752614][]even if] "tje aliens did it"
mircea_popescu: this mirrors the above discussion re money exactly : in a certain context, idiocy can be just idiocy. but when you engage (and it does not matter how far above your paygrade the engaging is, or how coincidental -- the smoking gun dude could be retarded, iq <30, he'll hang just as well) the very hot core of the first mover in certain ways... suddely it's not no more.
mircea_popescu: and so this is what happened there, the complete story : he did ~just what a saboteur would do~, because look how fucking wunderbar=ly it'd have sabotaged if it worked ; and a less-than-divine mp easily would've gotten fucked over it. so now -- we can never be friends again, i ain't getting over that.
mircea_popescu: much like you can never be friends with the man who shot and missed -- because he can never be anything else now, besides the dood who took his shot
mircea_popescu: sings "He was slick but I was slicker, he drew quick but I was quicker and the table stopped his ticker Surly Joe - Yee Haw"

dorion: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/trilema/2019-07-26#1925030 << I've managed to make progress on the rockchip trb build, but've not yet succeeded. Presently the status is:
snsabot: Logged on 2019-07-26 10:17:04 dorion: ty mp_en_viaje I am Robinson Dorion, the someone BingoBoingo mentioned had inquired about the rk. Plan is to sync a trb node there.
dorion: 1. I used the buildroot menuconfig to produce a rotor_buildroot_aarch64_dot_config.
dorion: 2. I modified the build/Makefile and build/Makefile.rotor to build the aarch64 toolchain, bdb and openssl.
dorion: 2a. The config.guess and config.sub files for bdb were taken directly from the links in the configuration error message : http://git.savannah.gnu.org/gitweb/?p=config.git;a=blob_plain;f=config.guess;hb=HEAD ; http://git.savannah.gnu.org/gitweb/?p=config.git;a=blob_plain;f=config.sub;hb=HEAD
dorion: 3. Boost has proven to be the most stubborn. 1.52.0 was released in 2012 and, from my understanding, aarch64 support wasn't added until 2015 in 1.58.0. Said support included adding asm, entry point of reference here : http://archive.is/jciFv
dorion: It appears to me the options are a) make a patch to boost to backport the aarch64 support , b) build the arm 32bit toolchain and 32bit bitcoind on rockchip and attempt to run there.
dorion: It's not clear to me which is preferable and I would appreciate some direction.
dorion: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/trilema/2019-09-07#1934639 << I came across http://bbgentoo.ilb.ru/ , which appears to do a decent job of preserving distfiles. e.g. has nearly entire php-4.x series, except ~actual weightlifter~. even has php 2 and 3 tarballs. there is also what appears to be a portage tree dated 2011-01-31.

snsabot: Logged on 2019-09-09 11:40:47 diana_coman: what I can't quite get in all this is why is asciilifeform fighting mircea_popescu's leucocite-qualities so much and at every occasion?
diana_coman: there is always (and still available and I'd like to see it taken by phf, yes) the place in other castles; so I suppose, if one must answer the question, the threshold as I see it atm = reaching to ban from *other* castles.

snsabot: Logged on 2019-05-17 19:17:34 trinque: whaack: more important than where you haul your ass is what you're going to do when you get there.
whaack: in.
diana_coman: whaack: good for you; what are you working on, anyway?
diana_coman: asciilifeform: well, for one thing I don't think it's an accurate description of the situation in that...who produced phf, esthlos, framedragger? re esthlos at least I can even say that no, he precisely dropped out of ..production as you put it.
whaack: nothing directly republic related. i've been reminded by reading the recent logs that i'm in the perpetual ill-start-helping-tomorrow state. i always have an excuse for myself: "i'll be increasing noise, im too unedecuated to do shit, i need to become bilingual/get out of reich first, etc. etc"
diana_coman: whaack: so possibly #ossasepia or #asciilifeform are better places for you to try to get in.
diana_coman: or #spyked
diana_coman: asciilifeform: for the other thing, the situation you describe can indeed very well happen and yes, a problem, but the solution can never be "restrain your adverse reaction"
diana_coman: you can restrict their access to the danger, but you can't fence in the danger "for your safety and security"
whaack: roger that. Before I disappear into the subcastles, I'll mention i'm blogging the differences in Spanish/English pronunciation which other ESLers in the channel may find useful http://ztkfg.com/2019/09/differences-between-english-spanish-phonetics-part-1-differences-in-stops-d-k-t-p/
diana_coman: whaack: worth noting though that this "I can start helping" is (given its history) incorrect and keeping you back; you're better served by stating the naked "I'll ask for help and do what I'm asked to do, today"

diana_coman: asciilifeform: I doubt it can help you if it gets read like the rest; anyway, the shortest summary I can come up with: phf persistently refused to engage tmsr beyond the purely technical; and ultimately (when pressure forced a decision) made his choice for out rather than in.
asciilifeform: diana_coman: to properly colour in this picture -- what would have looked like 'engage beyond the technical' ?
diana_coman: asciilifeform: what it always does: changing himself.
asciilifeform: diana_coman: changed how ? grow extra pair of hands ? a tree-proof arse ?

asciilifeform: diana_coman: no, i actually buy your summary, 'd00d wouldn't fucking talk'. but i'm also willing to ask ~why~ didn't talk ? maybe because erry time he opened the door, there was a beating behind it ?
diana_coman: asciilifeform: in that particular selected snippet, tell me for my curiosity *what* exactly stopped phf from talking directly to mp? and for that matter again, what exactly stopped him from telling his girl to get online and say "help"?
diana_coman: asciilifeform: neah; and I'm not going now to try and guess what was in phf's mind at one point or another, wtf.
asciilifeform: diana_coman: i wasn't there, at the tea table, so can't say. but fwiw i suspect he thought 'already written off' .
diana_coman: well, I can suspect all sorts of things but suspicions are not something you can base your argument on.
diana_coman: will bbl
asciilifeform: fwiw 'talk directly to mp' when 'i'm in a corner' moar often than not , in my experience, gives this output. i accept this, he's a 'sink or swim' sort of guru. but also not surprised that phf hesitated to ask him for an evac chopper .

asciilifeform: 'one day the king of all animals gathered his subjects in a forest clearing and said : 'today we shall anally punish those who have the smallest mouths. right, hedgehog?' 'Yaaaaa, Yaaaa!' said hedgehog. 'and tomorrow we shall anally chastise those who have the biggest mouths! 'hmm, hmm,' said hippo. ' )

asciilifeform: stalin is remembered as effective king strictly because the war forced moderation of leukocyte. otherwise, he'd be remembered as exactly like e.g. emperor qin shihuangdi, who beheaded succession of 9000 alchemists for failing to produce elixir of immortality, until finally gave up in frustration and ate one , fulla hg salts

bvt: asciilifeform: today i had a quick look through stevens, apparently timeout for SO_KEEPALIVE is two hours (digging through linux source confirms), so i don't think this option is any useful as is; TCP_KEEPIDLE sets the keepalive timeout per-socket, but then there is a question to which extent to rely on all of these socket options.
asciilifeform: !q uptime
snsabot: asciilifeform: time since my last reconnect : 26d 5h 55m
asciilifeform: bvt: i'm not convinced that any of the sock options are needed, aside from during reconnect (to keep 'zombie' socket from interfering w/ the living )
bvt: i don't think that zombie socket can interfere with current code -- the local side of the socket gets unused random port automatically. this would be an issue only when bind(2) was called on socket before connect

snsabot: Logged on 2019-09-11 00:29:16 asciilifeform: trinque: obv. mircea_popescu's (and for that matter anyone's) ratings are b/w him and odin. but imho to present the disappearance of phf as some kinda win, is disingenuous at best .

snsabot: Logged on 2017-12-17 00:05:49 mircea_popescu: i was using "continuous" to people's confused disbelief. apparently continuous just means "has value for all x in interval"
asciilifeform: ( on my terminal, shows up as rectangle w/ '01 01' at end of line )
mircea_popescu: do you see the relationship ?
mircea_popescu: presenting the disappearance of horse&buggy as some kind of win was not, factually an' historically, disingenuos. even if trains did in fact take a while to "achieve same or better coverage in all points".
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: if a hypothetical phylloxera-for-horses had hit in 1800, would, imho, have been problem.
asciilifeform: even tho 'train coupla yrs away'
mircea_popescu: some things were lost once the great man-o-wars made way for the not nearly as great clunkers called ironclads. and once people figured out wtf a sears-haack body is, planes suddenly became "flying coke bottles'
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform, yet there's two kinds of problems : the problems it's good to have, and the problems it's bad to have. what i said was that this is, actually, a problem that's good to have.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: interestingly, the finns ran iron-cum-sails clippers all the way into 1920s.
mircea_popescu: not that the estimation's mandatory for anyone else. but, to ~my own lights~, etc.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform, and the japanese still showed up on the field in wood paste armor. state of the art cca death of j. gracchus.
asciilifeform: well wouldn't be interesting if were 'wood paste'. but they actually made nyc-helsinki in 2wks routinely.
mircea_popescu: good for the finns.
asciilifeform: ( steam won because fast+reliable, not simply 'fast' . and apparently skilled navigator can make up the diff much of the time. but, 'phd assembly line', none alive nao. )
mircea_popescu: this is the fundamental problem, and it has quite the wingspan : from the newton who, retardedly, eschews talking to people because he is smart, and he knows he's smart, and he likes to rely on "the claw" etc -- but who then does not know people, and this includes not knowing himself, and so this puts him in the ridiculous position where he ends up investing most of the metaphysica-earth-moving-shovel time into shoveling a
mircea_popescu: ir ;
asciilifeform: suspects that herr newton is poor example -- fella did end up master of mint, and prolly not by sitting in locked office refusing to talk

asciilifeform: 'biznis world' luvvs 'hold up walls' so long as can be done w/ 10k interchangeable php workers
snsabot: Logged on 2019-08-14 10:45:07 mp_en_viaje: this is also true, as a broad trend. it is unfortunate but true that the inept king prefers crossbowmen over archers, because archers take lifetime to train and dedication from puberty to craft, whereas crossbow can be operated by... outsourced labour. it takes a certain sort of short-sightedness to not notice the implicit band-of-brothers vs your own nobles cutting down your own mercs
mircea_popescu: all the way round to the archetipical anal child, sitting in his room "meditating" about "winning the lottery" -- because might as well.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform, no, actually, newton became master of mint ~precisely~ thtrough not talking to anybody.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: hm, so kinda like lazar kaganovich in stalin's orcistan ?
mircea_popescu: neways, this is the problem of our age ; and my lengthy foray into tlp (truth & fairness : only prior art extant on the topic), while unpleasant, has provided me with some insight : i dun think his diagnosis is correct. derealization, yes, a certain kind and flavour, yes. but not anymore narcissist in nature than self-loathing.
asciilifeform: y'know, commissar of railroads, the 1 d00d who survived ~all of sovok w/out losing office 1nce, much less head, by having extraordinarily tight lip
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform, he was ~summoned~ to parliament, all he said over years was asking to close the windows because draft ; the comission he bought ~same way fox the quaker ended up in money : wealthy admirer took pity.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i knew the window story as a boy and always it was part of why respected newton.
mircea_popescu: ofcourseitis.
mircea_popescu: the reason's half stupid though ; and when i say that i don't mean the smart part's stupid.
mircea_popescu: i mean the stupid part's stupid.
asciilifeform: i'll be 1st to admit, i do not know the reason. (why he not talked)
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform, if you had a big cock and a small cunt, would you be a boy or would you be a girl ?
asciilifeform: i'd call up barnum, lol
asciilifeform: make bank.
mircea_popescu: instead of perceiving the imbalance as a problem, an' applying the one working bit to fixing the non working bit -- he just swung the schlong around. died bitter, reportedly.
mircea_popescu: the stoic in me is unsurprised at the result.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: some historians iirc convinced that newton's cock literally did not work
mircea_popescu: but anyway, this is the poisonous promise of the specialisation : "oh, ye newton, jus' practice your maffs, no need to go out practicing your kissing"
mircea_popescu: it's fucking stupid.

mircea_popescu: the earth has been continuously inhabited by something rather like people for what, 20k generations or so ? each douche befouling the earth with his uneven gait and body odours today has thereby had 4e6k antecessors. yet the human population to date was never above 1e20, which happens to be the rounding error in that 6k.

mircea_popescu: and leaving that contemplation to the side : how do you propose to get me interested in your replacement plans once formulated ?

mircea_popescu: and if it doesn't, exactly nothing has been gained whatsoever.
mircea_popescu: these are the sorts of theories entirely spurious for being entirely useless. whenever it's one fo those 0-predictive power nonsense & balls of yarn, "if it's true nothing's gained and if it's false the world's lost" you know you're in the presence of subconscious protection.

mircea_popescu: i do however find the stotting behaviour quite infuriating. so yes, in my book the sort of retard who "does great work for like a year" isn't scoring above the sort of retard who does no work. i'd much rather have tea with elliott than any of the historical time-limited editions specifically for this reason.
asciilifeform: no one will ever say ' mircea_popescu is not consistent ' .
mircea_popescu: let it be clearly stated thus, that even if it apparently works on asciilifeform as it traditionally works ~everywhere, the "oh, let me show you my wares" coy behaviour doth not work on me. what's gained for this "did 1st class work, then got sad" thing's rather low level enmity.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform, maybe eventually, who knows!
