lobbes: In other news, I wish this mp-wp-bot already existed. I've been trying to locate a Trilema piece for this post I'm working on, and I must've gone through a few dozen by now with no luck.
lobbes: I believe it talks about the limit of existence in a socialist world. There's a specific phrase in it that goes something like "You'd better make sure you negotiate for what you want, because that is *all* you are getting. Ever." Any Trilema-ologists in know it?

mircea_popescu: is based will inform the ought discussion, sure ; but absent that... just, how ?!
mircea_popescu: in fact, breaking this distinction is truly the one deep problem with all sorts of "religious" thinkers in their own view, aka unmitigated morons in reality : the traditional position of the mula, intellectually impossible as it is, stands as "i'm not interested in sin therefore here's what you must do about it".
mircea_popescu: this shocking bit of imbecility unites across all times and all geography idiotic old women from george fox to cioran's hag with dirty feet.
mircea_popescu: notwithstanding its manifest popularity among the most perdurant and pervasive type of hostis humani generis, it's still impracticable insanity.
mircea_popescu: if i'm gonna want to learn about sex ima ask rapists not "careerwomen", and if i'm gonna want to learn about war ima visit hitler not "pacifists", "global hunger fixers" an' the rest of that very sad lot.

ossabot: Logged on 2019-09-11 00:43:20 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.
mircea_popescu: holy shit cascading references! neato!
mircea_popescu: but yes, to say it plainly : i don't agree phf was some kind of technical monument or example to be followed. making things that work does not enact one into such ; observe that every frog makes things that work, extremely fine things that work extremely well, viz the very fucking frog in question. yet a frog that can breathe is an ordinary frog, not an exceptional engineer.
mircea_popescu: there's http://btcbase.org/log/2014-10-03#856336 / http://btcbase.org/log/2014-10-03#856338 distinction bearing here : if one's notion of technical acument doesn't include "describing the things", every dog's an engineer nonpareil for having fleas.
mircea_popescu: one can't quite make fleas in the lab as things stand right now, so in this utterly jeffersonian view the ploughsman's the only true scientist.

mircea_popescu: asciilifeform, didactica aside, i dunno any of his production was even vaguely visible. i mean, you realise trilema still runs to this very fucking day on code published in what was it, 2015,
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i'ma have to see when i'm awake, possible oddity
mircea_popescu: whatever, just as soon as it was even vaguely possible one might've had some use for it. and this is ~deeply unsexy~, mind, i ain't publishing boihood-conventional "cool stuff & frank zappa" here. i'm publishing the most shameful thing known to the wankastery collective, and then end up having to "battle" nonsense of "oh, mp is intellectually stunted, can't install linux" because of it

mircea_popescu: people never thing properly of anything.
mircea_popescu: the reason so much misdesign exists in the world is the imbecile puritan "think positive" nonsense.
asciilifeform: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/trilema/2019-09-14#1936012 << 'describe' is very difficult. or maybe i'm thick. but i wrote pieces that were >50% commentola by weight and when rereading still sad, 'this is not properly described'.

mircea_popescu: correct thinking consists of thinking ~about the negative space~. not about the positive space. not "oh hurr durr it works", ffs.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform, standard wasn't ~properly~ described. standard was described at fucking all, i don't need to explain the difference between your logger which diana_coman 's running now and phf's alleged logger which, for all anyone knows, consists of one mechanical turk who meanwhile got sad / ran away.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: when wrote 'm', actually spent many days rewriting the commentary. but today when looking at it, 'who can read this? why?' and sad.
mircea_popescu: don't be.
asciilifeform: it was enheartening tho when diana_coman ate ffa 1-19 and commented. apparently it was edible by at least 1 . (even if took a maffs doctor )
mircea_popescu: to continue "publication-phobic folks" thread : difference between mouse and man is that moue will eat itself into overweight to the point where can't, famously, get back out through the hole it came in.
mircea_popescu: man will consider, "oh nice, there's nine pies here, i'm still going to have ONE SLICE".
mircea_popescu: and like this in everything -- man will say "i can't fucking sit on all this, people will spit on grave IF ONE DAY IT HAPPENS i'm incapacitated".
asciilifeform writes proggies as a kind of will / seppuku haiku. 'friends, here is how to operate, for i am not among...' flavour.
mircea_popescu: man will say "i can't sit about pretending to myself i've a gf, if in case something should happen this Maddy Humphreys woman doesn't know enough of me to mention the circumstance in the one place that matters in my life"
mircea_popescu: man, generally speaking, WILL THINK OF THE NEGATIVE SPACE.
mircea_popescu: wtf, how hard is it and how the fuck could it not be obvious.
mircea_popescu: not "do i want a jetski" but "what will i do with a jetski in akron, ohio" and "how will i pay the cc bill or why should i have to".
mircea_popescu: negative fucking space ffs, it used to be called thinking back when my grandfather could barely read ; now that all everyone does all day is "read" facebook somehow magically nobody can think anymore ?

mircea_popescu: Yes, obviously, as per long standing republican doctrine (and standing as such since long before this particular republic was even declared) the lord can get away with bloody murder. Of course he can. But this doesn't mean it's not murder, or not bloody."

snsabot: Logged on 2019-09-11 12:20:12 diana_coman: asciilifeform: that wasn't at all the issue and it has been already pointed out to you several times, here and on trilema.com
mircea_popescu: i suppose it is also terse, missing out on about 2/3 of the introductions does save some space.
mircea_popescu: i don't expect anyone can actually talk to alf who isn't both very intellectualyl lively and has a lot of experience talking to alfs. which technically is the definition of autism, i guess.
mircea_popescu: come to think about it ... yo asciilifeform , do you realise about 9/10ths of trilema the blog by mass is spurious introduction, which i could very well "do without" by employing a similar tironian process, except then nobody in the whole fucking world could follow what the fuck's being said anymore ?
mircea_popescu: not that very many manage even as it is -- but i'll be fucked with thistlestalks before i make that 9/10ths 19/20ths, holy hell, i'll need spare wrists.
mircea_popescu: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/trilema/2019-09-11#1935581 << of course the trigger was the trigger. what's in a trigger ? my neighbour has this eight year old dog. it's a large dog, and in large dogs eight is pretty much the end of the line. it's coming for her, too, three or four times already she passed out running / fell over, sat there squirming in desperation. heart's giving out.
snsabot: Logged on 2019-09-11 12:56:02 asciilifeform: diana_coman: the trigger for the entire episode. was the loss of the logger .
mircea_popescu: it's how large dogs die, as this one'll die. and when it dies, whatever the fuck will have been ~the trigger~. whatever the fuck inconsequential event, a car honking, a cat jumping, a bad dream, things that happen daily to other dogs to no ill effect.
mircea_popescu: it's a dog, though, it has no fucking idea it's walking about looking for that final trigger.
mircea_popescu: it doesnt' even understand what the fuck's happening to it when it passes out, seems rather like a ~momentary~ inexplainable nonsense / witchcraft best not ever considered past the moment, forgotten as soon as it passed as part and parcel of what being a dog even is ; there's no anxious dogs because dogs have no memory in this reflexive sense.
mircea_popescu: men do.
mircea_popescu: in fact, the whole http://trilema.com/2013/for-lack-of-a-nail/ thing is exactly this : a succession of triggers.
mircea_popescu: in any case, let's just say that trigger avoidance is a comparatively poorer strategy
mircea_popescu: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/trilema/2019-09-11#1935593 << traditionally the process in dealing with personal failure is 1. "here's what i did wrong" ; 2. "here's what ima do to not do that again in the future".

mircea_popescu: coversely, the process of being an imbecile is 1. "here's what i don't like about you" initiating half of the retard's handshake.
mircea_popescu: which of these two would you propose was followed here ?
mircea_popescu: dood to this fucking day imagines himself a "basically decent" fellow who "was oppressed" by the meanies of this world for "his bad luck". because idiocy comes in layers, lucifer went straight to hell thinking himself i nthe right on the same exact process also. it's a thing.
mircea_popescu: as a sure-fire heuristic, only dumb cunts discover "they were abused" as a disavowed result misrepresented as driving cause of contemplating how they fucked up.
mircea_popescu: and THIS is what's meant by "if you hang out with retards you'll become retarded" : dude spent so much time with the ustards, he is now behaving like a stupid cunt. his discovery of having fucked up doesn't lead to "omfg, i fucked up SO BAD". it leads to "oh, republic is abusive".
mircea_popescu: and it's self-perpetuating, too. if i take the trouble to actually write a trilema piece for his dumb ass, something absolutely nobody's entitled to expect, the result's more elaborate disavowal and general cuntery, rather than an awakening to sense.
mircea_popescu: because duh, "nobody ever got hanged for being a stupid cunt", the foundational myth of the inca state.
mircea_popescu: unrelatedly : hey trinque, now that there's actually multiple functional castles the time's prolly come to update the deedbot voice model into awareness of this situation. so how about a patch making voice in #trilema dependent on ~my~ wot, rather than deedbot's own ; and similarily in any castles that ask for it / you come to an understanding with the lords thereof, so they can use the voice model there if they wanna.

diana_coman: mircea_popescu: would a threshold on your rating of the person make more sense?
mircea_popescu: that scary moment when one notices the TWO most recent items in trilema comments queue are trackbacks from other people's blogs.
mircea_popescu: diana_coman, you think ?
mircea_popescu: i mean, i see the merit, but isn't this rather tcp-style overloading of adhocisms ?
mircea_popescu: is there actual substantial meaning translated thereby ? /me shall have to meditate

mircea_popescu: i guess it can be revised, like all conventions / indirection layers.

mircea_popescu: myeah.
mircea_popescu: and i can see the "hey diana_coman if you dun wanna rate johnny 9 then don't knight'him" ?

mircea_popescu: the quote in particular is misleading -- it discusses a stupidity of young women, whereby they very much as discussed above misrepresent their "needs" as "support for escaping the consequence of their idiocy without needing to substantially review theyr cunthead".
mircea_popescu: this ain't a proper need ; and will get no support. it's what the "need" in there denotes, rather than the plain need.
mircea_popescu: that's the big problem with "helping", teenagers especially, but not just : they dun wanna be helped, they just wanna be insulated from the consequences of their idiocy.
mircea_popescu: #metoo and all that is merely contemporaneous expression of ~same eternal thing.
diana_coman: fwiw I always end up scratching my head at this "mircea_popescu won't help" because I haven't seen more people that are more helpful than mircea_popescu ; the only way that "won't help" makes sense to me is if it's fully qualified as in "won't help your stupidity"

mircea_popescu: not student loans tho, at least as it stands. for one thing, they're mostly commercial paper ; for the other thing, such a ban'd be pretty much equivalent to banning youth from travelling, afaik most are in some kind of default.

trinque: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/trilema/2019-09-14#1936106 << alf, surely we don't need to baw on behalf of anyone!

trinque: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/trilema/2019-09-14#1936114 << I'm thinking let the owner of chan set his/her threshold of voice, whatcha think?
snsabot: Logged on 2019-09-14 04:11:35 mircea_popescu: diana_coman, might still have to make soem kind of two-tiered system, because im not going to either unrate most everyone i have rated now nor let any and all talk. so i guess ima have two keysets ? nfi.

snsabot: Logged on 2019-09-14 04:15:00 diana_coman: if you say it's not any and all to talk, the q is : who to talk?
trinque: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/trilema/2019-09-14#1936168 << I've been long curious when. If mp wanted to be Stalin, he'd already be, or so the derp texan's opinion goes.
snsabot: Logged on 2019-09-14 05:10:06 mircea_popescu: also, comparison with iliterate peasant / highwaty robber's bound to break down at SOME fucking point.
trinque: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/trilema/2019-09-11#1935524 << sure in theory; what do you know about ilb.ru that makes it distinguishable from when I made the snapshot?
snsabot: Logged on 2019-09-11 04:08:46 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. I downloaded, but haven't yet cracked it open.
trinque: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/trilema/2019-09-14#1936175 << cheering you on over here.
snsabot: Logged on 2019-09-14 07:33:25 ave1: So I'm working on genesis of gcc and the second test build is running. First failed, I expect some more failures before done.
trinque: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/trilema/2019-09-14#1936203 << I intend to badger you about hardware p until silenced by brick wall. what load now?
snsabot: Logged on 2019-09-14 12:27:44 asciilifeform: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/trilema/2019-09-14#1936099 << this also imho good idea. tho afaik none of the other castles carry enuff load yet to make voicetronic model appealing there
trinque: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/trilema/2019-09-14#1936229 << lol, the dude's 40 something, not 80. and yet, a-fucking-men.
snsabot: Logged on 2019-09-14 14:52:11 lobbes: http://logs.ericbenevides.com/log/trilema/2019-09-14#1936160 << verily. Furthermore, the inescapable truth is that one day mircea_popescu will shuffle off this mortal coil. Why anyone would not want to eat as much of his brain while he is around is completely unfathomable to me, especially since he is willingly offering it to eat! The Republic will one day need to stand on its own feet and produce
ericbot: Logged on 2019-09-14 07:57:52 diana_coman: fwiw I always end up scratching my head at this "mircea_popescu won't help" because I haven't seen more people that are more helpful than mircea_popescu ; the only way that "won't help" makes sense to me is if it's fully qualified as in "won't help your stupidity"
trinque: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/trilema/2019-09-14#1936245 << heh, my parents had the good sense to shove me out the airlock re: student debt. So I had the good sense to not take any.
snsabot: Logged on 2019-09-14 15:45:52 lobbes: hrm, though I just thought of another rub: my mom actually cosigned my student loans. Which means if I default they will come after her for the money. Those damn octopus arms are everywhere
trinque belches, sated with logs
asciilifeform: ohai trinque , wb
trinque: how goes, mon frere?
asciilifeform: trinque: refillin' chalkboard w/ where left off in ch20 in july !
asciilifeform: trinque: and earlier, assembling some machine tools for piz chassis munging
asciilifeform: ( and groundskeeping chore ughs )
snsabot: Logged on 2019-09-14 19:03:20 asciilifeform: meanwhile, in lulz BingoBoingo might appreciate, asciilifeform was clearing , i shit thee not, jungle, w/ machete
asciilifeform: trinque: and you ?
asciilifeform: btw trinque ( and possibly BingoBoingo ) : what's the barest starvation tooling with which weld aluminum ?
asciilifeform: modern-day builders all seem to think can't be done except under noble gas
asciilifeform: which i suspect is bullshit
trinque: not a pro welder myself
trinque: and doing fine. just got in from my dentist's office in the mexican hood.
trinque: I don't know if it would surprise anyone here, but they do a better job!
asciilifeform: ah, i was pretty certain that someone mentioned doing it, and was trinque . maybe that someone writes in.
trinque: naw
asciilifeform: trinque: see, stock chasses are usually ~1mm mild steel. which welds ok w/ ordinary 1940s electrode style. but was thinking, for next batch, aluminum, lighter crate -> moar boxen
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: IIrc the Home Despot rents MIG welders
asciilifeform: somewhat oddly, perhaps, vs traditional comp-building culture , mechanical strength is needed, the crates are abused rather heavily by the porters ( last time BingoBoingo and asciilifeform had to straighten the 'ears' with hammers )
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: cost of renting tools there is such that makes moar sense to buy, if anyffin smaller than bulldozer, normally
trinque: incidentally slurpin down that whole bbgentoo.ilb.ru
asciilifeform: neato
asciilifeform: trinque: how much did it weigh ?
trinque: it'd be nice to be able to turn up continuity with historic gentoo tree
trinque: will tell ya when done
trinque: I've got terbytes free down in uy tho
asciilifeform: trinque: in theory , the long-sought 'pure gcc4 bringup' set could be in there.
trinque: go go gadget wget -r
trinque: on the subj of multi-channel deedbot, that already exists. I need to tweak the wot/voicing code a bit to support, but otherwise not so hard.
trinque: can the lords and ladies let me know if they're interested in such a thing, and if so I'll get cracking.
asciilifeform: trinque: defo will be handy.
lobbes is currently not sure if should apply for official castlehood, on grounds that a) castle is currently deserted and b) technically I resigned from lordship about a month ago
lobbes: Of course I'm already regretting that resignation thinking I did that with my classic 'jumpy reasoning'; I think what I really needed was clarity, which comes from communication, which has been working pretty well so far.
lobbes: In any case, I'll just give it some time.
lobbes: with that, time to dig into mysql database slaving capabilities
trinque: I dunno that castlehood or w/e is the "and now you can have a deedbot" line
trinque: that seems entirely backwards.
trinque: you have your relationships, whatever they are, and you're peered into whomever else.
trinque: http://wot.deedbot.org/ << the one-eyed creature needs moar eyeballs
lobbes: hm, yeah I guess this makes sense. Sort of a "cross that bridge when come to it" type of deal
lobbes: no point in crossing bridges in a desert
trinque: I dunno what metaphors apply, but surely you know someone besides yourself.
trinque: what do I care if you talk to them. probably zero, maybe >0!
trinque: and the whole point of social topology that isn't dot and flat line below, is that "maybe >0!"
trinque: I'm inclined to let whomever register w/e channel with deedbot, set their threshold for plebvoice, and let the wot work.
lobbes: ah okay. this makes sense. let the wot drive distinction between monkey-castle and actual-castle
trinque: would've saved mircea_popescu years of trilema if the ideal state were "and then I think for all of you for the rest of time"
trinque: but don't take me as presuming to speak for anyone.
