ossabot: (trilema) 2019-10-08 asciilifeform: which is why when i encounter a fella like shinohai, who has 100% of his time, it boggles my mind that he hasn't built a thermonuclear dirigible simply as a side effect of basic fucking metabolism
asciilifeform: shinohai: outta curiosity, for what do you want btc ?
shinohai: Well it certainly helps lube online business, otherwise just nice to have hoarded away as part of war chest, if necessary.
ericbot: (trilema) 2019-10-08 asciilifeform: point being, in asciilifeform's eyes only makes sense to spend personal coinz if can buy it back ~immediately at same or better price. which is difficult to do.
shinohai: Well if I can purchase an item or service in another manner, I prefer to do so by other means. But BTC is certainly the currency that talks everywhere, worldwide.
shinohai: Want Fentanyl shipped to those loud neighbours from some guy in China? BTC will do it!
danielpbarron: asciilifeform, if it pleases you, I can be persuaded to look into data centers in Tulsa, Oklahoma. It is a little over an hour drive from my location.
asciilifeform: danielpbarron: wb and ty. but if we do usa, we'll prolly want to do it where asciilifeform or e.g. trinque can easily pay visits to it
danielpbarron: okay. Figured I'd mention it anyway. Looking forward to service returning.

asciilifeform: what've you been up to , danielpbarron ? where adventured ?
danielpbarron: this year I've been on a week+ long camping trip hiking up a Colorado mountain with fellow church goers, picketed the Harvest Crusade (a false Christian event hosted at Angel Stadium in California) with Darwin Fish, and visited my old home of Connecticut to attend my brother's wedding as the best man.
ossabot: (trilema) 2019-10-09 asciilifeform: i suspect that mp_en_viaje will yet have occasion to say 'thank you' to asciilifeform for having 'wasted time' discovering how to undetectably and reliably shortwave.
PeterL: asciilifeform: you said you can't convert BTC to USD, I could help with the conversion (I have an account at $heathen-exchange), within the US it should even be cheaper than sending USD to bingoboingo
ossabot: (trilema) 2019-10-17 asciilifeform: presently puzzling over where to get exchange rate for pricing; prolly will have to lift from BingoBoingo's auctions, for so long as they're happening with reasonable regularity .
