mircea_popescu: ut.
mircea_popescu: it's neither, eminently. what some woman composing the 2nd to 80th percentile of any population of women THINKS she wants is of no consequence and utterly no import, for anyone HERSELF FOREMOST. tryna discover "what you want" unless you're god;s own chosen is exactly like tryna discover if moonrock should be browner
mircea_popescu: but... it's also an easy mistake to make ; an easy stupidity to buy into. and it "explains" away so very much, insulates the mind from personal failure so well... DOES SO MUCH DAMAGE disavowed...
mircea_popescu: self-evidently the greatest folly of our times, "you, muh daughter, should figure out what it is you want" hurr durr. nothing, of course, like the celebrated stupidities/received ideas of history ; nor as ridiculous nor as pervasive nor as inexplicable because easily dispelled nor in any way remarkable. a mediocre delusion at best.
mircea_popescu: i have no fucking idea why the ycall it "postmodernism", it's nothing like modernism, and definitely no kind of post. it's simply the time of mediocrity : mediocre people succumbing to mediocre wounds of the spirit ; legions of apprentice wizards trying their master grimoire and causing no remarkable, explosive, catastrophic outbursts. merely [https://i.pinimg.com/736x/76/df/64/76df643b4566f10bad849bb927cbd2c4.jpg][dying q

mircea_popescu: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/trilema/2019-09-21#1937511 << there's a space there, in between "ima drag this to sea" and "i intend to ~commercialize~ this".
snsabot: Logged on 2019-09-21 23:59:56 trinque: in that vein, it occurs to me that this holding back of items such as ^ is dishonorable in that it's effectively a signal that one intends to drag whichever items with him into the grave/bottle/sea
mircea_popescu: but the latter comes with VERY FIRM OBLIGATIONS -- one has to DO MARKETING FOR THE ITEM. someone who on one hand doesn't relase code of item we use, therefore ~DECLARING~, just as good as if he had deeded, that he intends to commercialize item, and then failing to do any work towards that, is in fact quite dishonorable.
mircea_popescu: so yes, i expect a VERY steady stream of "oh, http://trilema.com/2014/the-twinheaded-announcer-announces/#footnote_0_55947[][i tried] this, here's how it worked" for ALL items in that situation.
mircea_popescu: and yes, i had been (and for years, at that) slowly growing hostile to people doing both ends of that, ie, on one hand "i'm not publishing this, i intend to earn a living off it" and then turn around and "i ain't about to advertise this, who the fuck gives a shit, i'm not putting my precious lfie behind it, wut!!!"
mircea_popescu: it's stupid is what it is ; and not for any reason to do with the outside, but purely from a disheveling of the inside of the mind capable of such double-splits-with-double-disavowal.
mircea_popescu: i'm aware it's very much what stupidity/puritanism/pantsuitism teaches, "pure at heart in public and very weirdly deviant in private" sorta "deal" with "god". IT'S STILL FUCKING STUPID.
snsabot: Logged on 2019-09-21 04:21:57 mircea_popescu: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/trilema/2019-09-20#1937480 << this is exactly right. fucktarded protestants, protested the papacy for being too inept and corrupt ; built themselves a derpier, more inept papacy in its place.
mircea_popescu: in fact, it's not less stupid for being what the morons are preaching BUT MORESO!
mircea_popescu: but to sum it up clearly and concisely : you're not required to try and commercialize everything you come up with, feel free to publish whatever it is you want ; and you're not required to try and publish everything you come up with either, feel free to try and commercialize. but pick EXACTLY ONE. don't try ye olde pantsuit magic, it neve

asciilifeform: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/trilema/2019-09-22#1937527 << will add that 'commercialize' doesn't require seekrit sauces, necessarily (e.g. FG is 100% published, to no detectable detriment)

mircea_popescu: there is that.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform, timisoara dorks, they're very self important. can you imagine this glorified rural shithole actually imagines itself "the european culture capital 2019" ?
mircea_popescu: it's like if evanston, wyoming thought itself the center of intergalactic trade.
diana_coman: bwahaha and mircea_popescu did not "want to answer" lmao
mircea_popescu: you should have seen that dork, he creeped up to us while we were watching some locals zumba and all schmoozey "what is this ?"
mircea_popescu: "this is me sitting and you talking to people you don't know. leave it at that." was the ~actual~ answer.
diana_coman: mircea_popescu: unfortunately I can entirely see him because he's so...unique I suppose.
mircea_popescu: took like three orbitings to process, and the fucktard STILL didn't put it in, i'm sure.
mircea_popescu: apparently saying "last night i met some really cool people, they fucking blew me out of the water THUS AND FOLLOWING" is forbidden by god or some such.
mircea_popescu: he's gonna get very far in life pretending to equality with his betters ; as the facts perceptible well confirm. /sarcasm
diana_coman: mircea_popescu: eh, he made it to the newspaper, ok?
mircea_popescu: right right.
mircea_popescu: and, of course, "i wonder who this is", because TEN YEARS have fucking passed in vain. back in 2009 BOTH mircea badeas were like "hurr durr, who is mircea popeescu", meanwhikle a decade passed, nobody STILL ever fucking heard of either copy of them.
mircea_popescu: i would propose that the true and proper as well as only possible epitaph for romania is exactly this "shithole had exactly one billionaire, and no fucking idea who he was".
mircea_popescu: sums up the place like nothingelse.
mircea_popescu hasn't actually read any of the links (nor do i intend to), so in theory this may be entirely baseless hatemongering on very comme il faut goodfolk who totally see the length of their nose.
mircea_popescu: but in practice, i'm well satisfied it isn't going to be.
diana_coman: mircea_popescu: eh, on some topics some people always "have no idea"; in the best interpretation possible, because it's so alien from everything else they have.
mircea_popescu: yet all the items involved were standard issue. dog leashes bought in the fucking mall (and guess what, i tried them on there ALSO, week ago). women produced through the usual process some years ago.
mircea_popescu: not like unobtanium's involved.
diana_coman: mircea_popescu: well, it's the use not the items, the usual "omg, not used according to my expectations therefore bad, abominable, can't exist etc"
diana_coman: in fairness, there were - according to the newspaper-bit itself - quite a few people that pointed the obvious ie 3 people being totally fine so wtf's the problem with it??
lobbes: http://logs.ericbenevides.com/log/trilema/2019-09-22#1937523 << not sure if hairier due to my own inexperience, or because naturally hairy, but yes there is hair.

snsabot: Logged on 2019-09-21 23:38:50 lobbes: has been glued to console most of the day; almost has the first chunk of mp-wp-bot functioning (inserting log lines to blog post piece)
lobbes: In any case, not hairy due to alf's original code (as it is well organized and his abundant commentary makes it a pleasure to work with, actually), but due to learning curve of interfacing with mysql and/or mpwp's backend
lobbes: I wasted a good chunk of time wrestling with proper escaping of quotes and the like, which I eventually achieved. Turns out that the "MySQLdb" python lib I was using was shit; had to switch to "mysql.connector" which allows for proper prepared sql statements.
lobbes: With that out of the way it has been going smoothly, and I'm mainly making up for lost time now. It would seem I'm on track to hit my deadline though. I will probably have some demo output for mircea_popescu to look at by the end of the day
asciilifeform: oh hey lobbes -- ported to mysql ? do the indices work ?
diana_coman: lobbes: sounds like a productive few days really, not bad.
lobbes: asciilifeform: well, mircea_popescu's spec all of the lines are to appear on mp-wp articles (hence, the database piece is the backend for mp-wp, which is mysql)
asciilifeform: aha
asciilifeform: lobbes: but if you want the thing to be searchable -- will need, eventually, indices.
asciilifeform: ( granted, mircea_popescu's piece iirc did not mention search )
lobbes: diana_coman: it was productive, at least. Learned things, sharpened skills. Know the logotron code more intimately as well as the mp-wp mysql "guts"
lobbes: asciilifeform: ah but there will be search, though it will consist of a entire blog-wide search (and, since the logs will be posts, they will also be included)
mircea_popescu: diana_coman, quite exactly.

mircea_popescu: ah. well, we're doing this europe thing. did a 8-9 week budapest oslo warsaw minsk kiev etc etc
mircea_popescu: next week will go for a budapest salzburg/linz vienna munchen frankfurt berlin etc.
asciilifeform: a. i saw 'I'm back from two-and-a-something months abroad' and thought ' mircea_popescu & co didn't stay for the autumn rains ' etc
mircea_popescu: also attempted a sibiu/brasov etc, but it failed over brasov, romania's 2nd largest and most importantest town, actually being an utter rural shithole, far below say highland, indiana.
mircea_popescu: but that's where the bear was.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform, no, see, it's a matroska doll of travel, vacations within vacations with vacation subcompartments of their own!
asciilifeform: a++
mircea_popescu: ikr.
mircea_popescu: btw diana_coman you still feel like hungary ? have a cuppa this weekend ?
asciilifeform re bear -- could've sworn mircea_popescu once wrote a piece re 'ursar' , the old caste of bear handler folx. but can't seem to find.
mircea_popescu: what are you doing to me man ;/
mircea_popescu: i can barely remember 2 in 3 of the modern, english ones.
asciilifeform: iirc , was subcaste of gypsies, who lived 100% by training & exhibiting bear
mircea_popescu: yup, this much is factual.
asciilifeform: ( in ru was entire 'genre', медвежья потеха ('bear amusements') , but ~extincted in 1600s )
asciilifeform: subj, illustrated.
mircea_popescu: i expect these were mostly the eastern gypsies. much like the jews, gypsies come in a spectrum, the southern arab-owned oens were mostly metalworkers, the northern rus' owned ones were mostly bear / acrobatics / horse riding / circus and such ; the middle set mostly thieves and whores.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: in 1600s ru, the church had an episode of rampaging stupid, and ended with ban on not only performing gypos but , for a time, all musical instruments. the bear specialists converted to straight brigandry, adding to already formidable head count of thieves/brigands.
mircea_popescu: aha.
asciilifeform: iirc this is how bagpipe disappeared in ru.
mircea_popescu: ~same time london managed to give itself apprentice riots.
mircea_popescu: twas a moment of renascentist reaction in the periphery
asciilifeform: interesting , possibly, detail, the performers weren't entirely 'apolitical', tended to make light of the clergy/nobility , so nailed somewhat like mircea_popescu's moscopol & co.
mircea_popescu: aha.
