snsabot: Logged on 2019-10-23 08:07:58 spyked: asciilifeform, btw, how much money+time did you invest in this so far? and how much of that went on e.g. iron? this kind of stuff is useful first and foremost for you to review, but e.g. if I decide to start something similar in bucharest 1yr from now, it'd be hugely useful as a comparison point
spyked: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/trilema/2019-10-23#1947814 <-- not sure what's gained by this, other than making sure that the mind-boggling weirdness doesn't occur. v.pl init downloads patches and seals, so the verification process still relies on the keys already being there. tho I'll admit, wget -r is not the best

mp_en_viaje: it can be argued that this is the ~principal~ utility of www in the first place, that it permits things such as "reading trilema" only as a 2ndary bolt on. what it's for is to turn a [thewhet.net/2019/03/hanbots-cuntoo-bake-test-notes-part-iv/?b=pedantic&e=white-knuckling#select][half hour trudge] into a five second job.

mp_en_viaje: delegation works on tasks you've mastered, not on tasks you've no fucking idea how to do. there's a great component of "get hired aka apprentice with masters" in tmsr, don't fuck it up with dumb lazy precious cuntlet antics
mp_en_viaje: hire someone when you're excellent at the job, not when you have nfi how to do it.
spyked: mp_en_viaje, it does this once in a while: the archival job is placed in a wait-queue and takes a while to process. problem is that this worked only on the 2nd try, 1st one returned a 503. so prolly they're overloaded or something.
mp_en_viaje: possibly. it's been underperforming systematically and ramping up to my eye.

BingoBoingo: Surveying the local lawyers, most... to the extent they specialize stick to the popular bread and butter of family law, criminal defense, real estate (construction and rental as sub specialties), and the most routine sorts of contracts.
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: mp did warn, that the only way to get ~genuine~ (vs 'meal ticket') legal service is to retain and groom for loyalty a trusted specialist for yrs.
asciilifeform: and this still only worx if sumthing like sane jurisdiction, ~and~ troo specialist, ~and~ actually loyal...
asciilifeform: ...and if you actually have the budget to even try.
asciilifeform brb,tea
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: I came into the first one through having paid them for sit down to discuss the residency process. Things never got further than paying fot the sit down in that case as their rate for help with places I have to go myself anyways was rather rich for the task, but they were incredibly responsive and un-Uruguayo. I hope I left them with the impression that I pay for value.
BingoBoingo: Other than the offering of coffee from one of those pod-machines, the office cultures observed could not be more different.
BingoBoingo: Then there's the specialist gringo/Brit firms advertising to the "escape out of the US for the Switzerland of the Americas" scam crowd.
BingoBoingo: Which are different and unsuited to any actual task, the want more for even less than the Uruguayos.
BingoBoingo: The impression I got from the guy Monday is that he, personally, was bored for a want of interesting work.
BingoBoingo: And he seems to have a motivation to perform to spec in order to get more business referred to him.
BingoBoingo: As I was saying, very un-Uruguayo office culture. It's not as ideal as a cultivated relationship with an independent, but for my failure to have that... this seems to be the next best option for having leverage.
diana_coman: http://logs.ossasepia.com/log/trilema/2019-10-24#1947996 - that would have been such an outlier reply that I'd have at least taken the time to both talk in more detail to the guy AND report it for sure; can confirm: no, nobody came anywhere close to replying such a thing.

mod6: BingoBoingo: Caught up on the comments from yesterdays post. Does seem like the 1st guy is the better option here.
BingoBoingo: mod6: Overwhelmingly so.
mod6: If I read between the lines, sounds like the telegram has been sent? Or am I mis-reading what "screws" means?
BingoBoingo: Second set of stooges present themselves as good as aligned with the enemy.
BingoBoingo: mod6: Yes
BingoBoingo: Sent
mod6: What does the first guy think the next steps should be here?
BingoBoingo: Continue being a model plaintiff while standing in front of the arrayed tools which are absolutely ready to disproportionately impose costs on the damned faster than they are acrued.
BingoBoingo: On my end.
mod6: It sounds like you have formally retained the 1st guy as our lawyer, is this correct?
asciilifeform: ^ was how i read it also
diana_coman: http://logs.ossasepia.com/log/trilema/2019-10-24#1947996 - also, wouldn't this have belonged as a comment there really? or some reason to comment on... feedbot's announcements?

BingoBoingo: mod6: Retained no. It is a pay as needed situation.
mod6: Ok, but he knows that he's basically our guy now?
asciilifeform: diana_coman: do you have feedbot-comments set up ? ( i for instance do not, yet, tho afaik after recent fix my www supports comment-rss )
BingoBoingo: mod6: He knows I was/am auditioning other counsel too, but is willing to act in order to preserve my advantage in tiempos.
mod6: Gotcha.
diana_coman: asciilifeform: no, but why not just comment there?
diana_coman: I'm just puzzled by the choice, nothing more.
asciilifeform: diana_coman: noted, henceforth will comment there. ( in asciilifeform's pov is easier to follow comments in log, but really decision of author )
mod6: So it sounds like the third group is more in the audit business; are there other 'auditions' already setup, or a few that you are in discussion with currently, or have targeted for discussion?
diana_coman: asciilifeform: uhm, do you mean that blog-comments belong in the #t logs?
BingoBoingo: mod6: The third one fell apart when they mentioned they were audit specialists and got very Uruguayo. At this moment I have no other auditions lined up.
mod6: Alrighty.
diana_coman: asciilifeform: ah, and now I think I got what you meant earlier re feedbot-comments and yes: I have feedbot announcing to me in private the comments on my blog too, certainly; works great, too!
BingoBoingo: I am confident that if the first guy was in the US, his hourly... would be far higher.
asciilifeform: diana_coman: typically (esp. folx who can't be arsed to xor 2 #s..) comment re my own text in log, rather than on www. so got habit of this. but yer right, comments oughta go on orig piece.
asciilifeform: !Qlater tell spyked can you add my www to feedbot-commentism roster plox ? ty
lobbesbot: asciilifeform: The operation succeeded.
mod6: So while you're just 'continuing to be a model plaintiff...', is the idea that our lawyer is going to review the facts from the compiled case-file/complaint that you've gathered while he gets his complaint strategy in order? As my assumption is that he'll want to have a meeting with 'the damned' and their lawyers before filing a motion with the court?
asciilifeform: mod6: afaik (ianal!) is how settlements are made, by 'meeting with the damned'
diana_coman: asciilifeform: all you need to do is to tell feedbot !1 follow loper-os/comments/feed or whatever the rss is; re your blog I suspect the comments-in-here is precisely because of the xor hurdle.
asciilifeform: diana_coman: will do. ( as for spam trap, until i actually get chance to move my www to mp's wp system, the spam trap stays, i dun have slaves to filter the 400+ spamolas was getting erry day prior to installation of traps )
mod6: asciilifeform: werd, just trying to get clairification on what's expected, next steps. Perhaps we can continue to clean up Piz while BB may have some laywer-downtime for a few days.
BingoBoingo: mod6: His mission in communicating with the damned is making the hopelessness of their situation clear. To this end his is to use every tool available to make it clear that no matter what, the damned will pay far more than the remainder of the contract. After that... you know what they say about plans and contact with the enemy...
diana_coman: asciilifeform: mah, I got that wrong, it was !1 subscribe not follow.
asciilifeform: diana_coman: ty. ( further re traps, imho e.g. python -c "print 11 ^ 77" aint much of hurdle )
mod6: BingoBoingo: What does his timeline look like on this, did he give you any kind of estimate to when he would begin 'communication with the damned'?
BingoBoingo: mod6: If the damned refuses to settle costs WILL be imposed on them. How many and what kind depend on how annoyingly they continue to demonstrate badfaith.
BingoBoingo: mod6: With the telegram he opened communications
BingoBoingo: Much of the timeline depends on how dumb and bad at math the damned is.
mod6: I see.
mod6: Thanks for the info. Sounds like he'll be letting you know, updating you on a regular basis as to what he's hears, etc.
BingoBoingo: Contact with the enemy and all that. Anyways, there are ways to inflict costs on the damned without actually suing over the civil matter. Like a criminal fraud complaint.
BingoBoingo: mod6: Very much so.
mod6: *nod* gotcha.
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: if the inflicted-costs aint even detectable except over geological timespam, tho, it dun do much for us
asciilifeform: *timespan
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Second order effects. Very relevant to the damned, and they will accrue costs very quickly.
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: and iirc you already filed the fraud complaint, neh ?
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: I filed the police report for the apparent theft. The officer read the potential for fraud into my narrative.
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: but the fraud wasn't actually in the text of the 1st ? so then gotta file 2nd
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: All that went into the first "hecho policial" was what the officer read out of mine narrative, not what I actually wrote. The second, far more damaging to the damned complaint comes if they refuse to deal and contain their liability.
BingoBoingo: If the truly damaging denuncia is filed before they can sit down... kinda spoils the sitting down. Once a denuncia is filed it goes to the local prosecutors office.
asciilifeform: a, logical.
BingoBoingo: The Monday guy, through his holding down the Montevideo outpost of an international... He benefits from big firm forced professional development. He know the ways Uruguay sucks compared to the outside world and the ways it doesn't because he's been forced to travel.
BingoBoingo: The meeting with him also opened with a FAR harder grilling than the meeting with apparently opposition counsel did.
mod6: Would this be a good time to calculate, then refund Piz customers who've paid in advance?
mod6: As well as S.NSA?
BingoBoingo: mod6: This weekend I hope to get the opportunity to sit down and do the accounting. Last weekend my hope to do so was beaten by time consuming yet time sensitive legaling.
mod6: Sounds good, take the time you need to review it all, etc. Seems sensible.
BingoBoingo: Pretty sure I said this before, but is was nice to be able to read the whole of this country's penal code in a few hours.
asciilifeform: mod6, BingoBoingo : afaik the refund for subscribers is the 1 equation w/out any unknowns. so oughta happen as soon as BingoBoingo is ready.
mod6: asciilifeform: Ya.
feedbot: http://qntra.net/2019/10/iraq-pleas-for-international-assistance-removing-us-troops-following-syria-withdrawal/ << Qntra -- Iraq Pleas For International Assistance Removing US Troops Following Syria Withdrawal
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: The refund for subscribers is their customer equity.
mod6: BingoBoingo: yeah, I recall you finding that part refreshing (re: penal code)
BingoBoingo: Civil code longer, but it also holds all the family law.
BingoBoingo: And most of the construction code.
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo, mod6 : thinking about it, i realized i have nfi what the priority order of creditors is. thought, 'customers go 1st' strictly from example of bitbet unwind.
mod6: I'm not 100% positive either, but if feels like that's the right thing.
mod6: *it
mod6: I'm sure MP will be instructive on this part.
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: I will get the numbers, but my naive understanding is debt before equity. Customers before other equity. But first I have to do the numbers.
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: do the books, but imho oughta get mp's pov before actually paying anyone.
BingoBoingo: Right
mod6: Yeah, correct.

BingoBoingo had a productive day. So far. Sat down with the fellow who recommended yesterday's audition. Told him that I was letting him know as a courtesy that after the meeting I developed the strong suspicion that the recommended fellow was the other party's counsel. That I don't know how good his relationship with the fellow is, but that I do not mind, and it may even help me if he warns the fellow that in the case I have been
BingoBoingo deceived... I intend to pursue the revocation of his law license through the relevant authorties.
