mod6: asciilifeform BingoBoingo ben_vulpes: I started in on the August report for Pizarro. I'm through the 3rd step, which means that I've made a draft that includes the filled out part of BTC Incoming/Outgoing and updated all of the customes in the list with their monthly payment information.
mod6: BingoBoingo: Hi Sir, I'm doing the books... going through the USD Incoming/Outgoing. Question for ya: Is the leftover $64 dollars from the first driver order (5 ssds) or the second drive order (3 ssds)?
mod6: ben_vulpes: I have a question as to what to do about the SSD line on the Tangibles table - since we didn't receive them.
mod6: Should I just pull that line off and then make a note under the table that we have a credit open with you to order new drives? And if so, I just need a dollar amount from you as to much USD you're holding for that.
mod6: Ok, I've made it all the way through the Assets table. w00t.
mod6: I did depreciate UY3 this month -- since this is the first full month of use. As opposed to last month which would have amounted to a fractional depreciation... which just didn't make a ton of sense.
mod6: ben_vulpes: I may need some hand-holding on the liabilities table -- but I'll give it a solid attempt probably tomorrow. But we never did get to walk through that one last month.
mod6: Either way, no worries, making good progress here.
mod6: asciilifeform: Let's see if we can get ben_vulpes a make & model number for what he should order for drives with that credit he is holding on to. Figure, let's aim for the end of this week if possible.
mod6: Pizarro Customers: Today is the 3rd of September, and I am currently working on settling a price point for September (since there was no auction at the end of last month). I'm close to getting this completed, and as soon as the price point is established, invoices will go out.
mod6: BingoBoingo is taking over Pizarro management duties as of the 5th of September, and the current plan is for him to be sending your invoices via his deedbot account.
ben_vulpes: each item in the tangibles table with a value in monthly depreciation needs the monthly depreciation charge applied to the book value of the asset in question; so for example UY1 needs to have its book value marked down 0.02129452; idem for UY2 the RC Pilot and UY3
ben_vulpes: then you need to update the tangibles table to account for the corrected amount of USD
ben_vulpes: aaand percolate those changes down to the Pizarro Assets table.
ben_vulpes: the cost for the s.mg staging server has a sub-satoshi amount
ben_vulpes: once you've updated tangibles to account for depreciation; calculate the change in customer equity by summing every prepaid customer's monthly bill, and subtract that sum from the shareholder equity liability line
ben_vulpes: at that point, you'll be ready to calculate shareholder equity; which is the difference between assets and all liability accounts except for shareholder equity.
ben_vulpes: slightly upstack, i have a number for the delta in customer equity, but i'll reserve mine to check against what you publish
mod6: <@ben_vulpes> USD incoming should also recognize the credit for the SSDs that i'm sitting on; which should increase USD incoming to the tune of 1500 USD << fixed
mod6: <@ben_vulpes> each item in the tangibles table with a value in monthly depreciation needs the monthly depreciation charge applied to the book value of the asset in question; << done
mod6: <@ben_vulpes> then you need to update the tangibles table to account for the corrected amount of USD << done
mod6: <@ben_vulpes> aaand percolate those changes down to the Pizarro Assets table. << done
mod6: <@ben_vulpes> the cost for the s.mg staging server has a sub-satoshi amount << herp, i see that in the customer notes. but not on the report. my guess is i fixed in report. will have to update the notes.
mod6: <@ben_vulpes> echo -n "num" | sha512sum -> 9c541f36eec40f6b83da2b031a950a23ec0139fcee44f24099409447106812a9c253ed8e50114cc773bf21b0204263e3516ce62845a8a9f7da66efb653ad6b94 << I've tried this four different ways tonight here, and comming up different than your hash here.
mod6: To be clear what I'm doing: 0.81357336-(sum of all pre-paid, i.e. accounts with line items that are ~not~ month to month)
mod6: I've tried this both with and without lobbes' rockchip (which is prepaid through October), and two otherways with the a "0" infront of the decimal, and withotu.
mod6: I'm not sure where I'm coming up different here, but I must still be missing something key.
mimisbrunnr: Logged on 2018-09-08 03:41 asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: when you do the swap, power down one of the 2 vacants and put mod6's disk in it, and put its disk in turn into mod6's, then we see who boots.
BingoBoingo: I was planning on heading down sometime this evening
BingoBoingo: The mini-USB cable was harder to find than the uart
jurov: Good morning, just a random thought: have you tried talking the DC into accepting bitcoins?
diana_coman: good morning; I can't seem to be able to connect to my rockchip anymore: http (ossasepia.com) gives 403 You don't have permission to access / on this server ; ssh refuses connection too; there was NO change as far as I know - I haven't touched it in quite a while and last time I connected everything worked fine; any idea what might be wrong there, BingoBoingo ?
diana_coman: as far as I can tell from here it looks like sshd is not running on my rockchip or something, rather weird
diana_coman: I might mention that ping works so the iron is up but something is messed up; the only hypothesis I have atm is that it perhaps reset ??
asciilifeform: diana_coman: i've never in 20 yrs witnessed ssdh spontaneously falling down.
asciilifeform: ping asciilifeform when this is plugged in, when we find out wtf gives re diana_coman's box ( strangest failure , so imho oughta do it 1st, unless mod6, who's been waiting for a while, objects. mod6 ? )
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: i'ma need resets, so this process will need BingoBoingo's dextrous hands on site
diana_coman: hm, as a wild idea: some IP mess up could explain this wonder I guess? i.e. I'm trying to connect to the IP of my rockchip afaik but if meanwhile it's not that of my rockchip...
BingoBoingo: <asciilifeform> BingoBoingo: meanwhile small short-term research item for you : see if you can get some extra airflow into the rk tray using something you can easily buy locally << I'll be headed over to that part of town this week to pay rent anyway can't hurt to look
ben_vulpes: mod6: the only difference between our tallies of customer equity charges is that BingoBoingo's account is missing from your tally.
ben_vulpes: i was basing the charge line for lobbes off the monthly bill line for him in your notes; i see that you marked it as a different number 0.01322028 for august, but i don't quite understand the logic there.
mimisbrunnr: Logged on 2018-09-06 23:37 ben_vulpes: once you've updated tangibles to account for depreciation; calculate the change in customer equity by summing every prepaid customer's monthly bill, and subtract that sum from the shareholder equity liability line
mod6: Let me go through why I skipped BingoBoingo and had a "different" number for lobbes.
mod6: So for BingoBoingo, he had previously been on a quarterly rockchip plan, but for August, he was month-to-month. So I skipped over his as it wasn't really a 'pre-pay', in my mind.
mod6: Next months report, he should be back to a 'pre-paid' as he did sign-up for another quarter of rockchippen
mod6: Any way, if I'm wrong about this line of thinking, please set me straight.
mod6: I'll dig through the lobbes thing here for a sec and explain myself.
mod6: Ok, so here it is, lobbes' rockchip is quarterly, which comes out to 0.01102674 BTC per month. This to me qualifes as 'pre-paid'. However, the Hosted Shell Plus he has been doing since August is month-to-month and imho does not qualify as a 'pre-paid'.
ben_vulpes: i take it back, that net change is right in line with at least last month's
ben_vulpes: mod6: i would add a totals line at the bottom of the assets table
ben_vulpes: mod6: if i sum assets, and subtract all liabilities except for shareholder equity from that number i get 11.75256396, not 12.02427688
ben_vulpes: so we still gotta get to the right number on sh.eq
mod6: <@ben_vulpes> mod6: i would add a totals line at the bottom of the assets table << ok
mod6: <@ben_vulpes> mod6: if i sum assets, and subtract all liabilities except for shareholder equity from that number i get 11.75256396, not 12.02427688 << ok, lemme see where i may have messed up here.
mod6: aha: 11.75256396 << i get this too, no idea how i screwed that up, but I'm gonna try to retrace my steps.
BingoBoingo: With the reminder usb fans exist this is clearly in the category of will be found locally
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: We seem to have winners "Notebook Super mini Cooler Fan" from zonalaptop. Apparently failing to sell on their own they were taped to a screen cleaning kit that failed to sell as an "Ofreta"
ben_vulpes: perhaps in this case it would be sensible to attach the report as a link from the post instead of further burning time on visual candy like html; unless there's a quick way for you to do it.
mod6: yikes. you wanna shoot me out one quick then? or is there just a simple thing I can do on my end without having to build emacs or whatever?
BingoBoingo: We've been doing some cleaning. Originally shared hosting was 0.003 and then it went to tiers. There was never any plan to enforce tiers aside from the honor system so this month we decided to flatten the structure.
PeterL: I did notice that you left the "plus" in the name, even though there is not a "non-plus" plan?
mod6: We could change the name, since now there is only one. Fair point.
BingoBoingo: Well the old non-plus ran 0.0015 and offered 5GB of space. If you can fit into 5GB of space I can bounce reviving it off the board.
mod6: I'd be ok with just dropping "Plus" of the name if we all agree. But for now, I think we should just stick with the one plan, as we all decided last month.
mod6: It's got everything ya want, nothing else that you don't.
mod6: http://p.bvulpes.com/pastes/4IXHx/?raw=true << asciilifeform BingoBoingo ben_vulpes : Here's my most recent notes, laid on top of BingoBoingo's notes just posted above ^. Please review so you're fully up-to-date. Thanks in advance.
mod6: I'd like to extend a hearty "Thank You and Job Well Done" to BingoBoingo on his first full month as acting Manager!
mod6: asciilifeform: That's be very nice, but I'd like to spread it around a bit if we can. If other persons are still willing to sell fiat, then asciilifeform wouldn't have to do the whole thing.
mod6: asciilifeform: keep in mind, we still have about 10 days until we MUST have the money ready to be wired. The 20th is the payment deadline, and there is approximately a 5 day wire-transmitting/clearing period.
mod6: So I like to get everything settled by the 10th to buy a bit of padding.
mod6: adlai: I'm inclined to take the offer, and we appreciate it. I'm gonna let BingoBoingo weigh in here too when he returns. So just hang tight and we'll let you know. If it's all good with everyone, we'll move forward from there.
mod6: asciilifeform: yah, we certainly do. Did you like the suggestion that I had in the notes/
BingoBoingo working on Spanish homework atm. Going to address some points quickly.
BingoBoingo: My understanding is that in the past we have been doing fiat sales in a way that has been exposing our friends to fx risk and left them with a bit of burning the past couple months. I am inclined to suggest we find a way to insulate our trusted friends from that risk first and make this more appealing for them.
BingoBoingo: I further have reservations about exposing our fiat side to risk by letting involving a known hallucinogen afficianado physically located in Israel involve that country's financial system in a transaction over a "minimum" contribution. I like sleeping well at night. The small chance of getting honeytrapped into a fake "international drug conspiracy" over 500 USD does not seem worth the risk.
