mircea_popescu: speaking of pictures, hey asciilifeform ! where's your travelog!
pete_dushenski: couldn't find this in the logs (so apologies if it's a repost) but holy shit is usg.btc scraping the bottom of the barrel if fatso karpeles is being resurrected as "cto" of privateinternetaccess (vpn) http://archive.is/XusOQ
a111: Logged on 2016-10-04 14:19 mircea_popescu: and in other fucking nonsense, freenode has decided to redirect ALL inbound links to its most recent web page, to advertise to the world privateinternetaccess.com, ie the nsa front ; and their derpitude in support of "resurrecting tor". this of course includes all old manual pages and everything else.
pete_dushenski: mircea_popescu: fatso even lost like 20 kilos in prison, so less-fatso now!
mircea_popescu: but did he know you can put mac and cheese on a pizza and it'd taste assewome!
pete_dushenski: lol he'll figure that out the day after he figures out that being "rich" means that you don't have to beg for jobs and "second chances"
pete_dushenski: just finished reading "NYT #1" (aren't they all) book by yuval harari - homo deus - in which this ~historian~ goes on and on about ai taking ur jerbs, magick biotech pills that will turn us into supermen, and other technodystopianist nonsense. had dude shut up after first 2/3rds of the book and stuck with the history of human technological progress
pete_dushenski: , it would've been a winner. but no, he had had to usg.gavin all over the place and draw dumb straight lines into infinity.
a111: Logged on 2018-05-09 00:11 BingoBoingo: Maybe by that point Africa?
pete_dushenski: doesn't that defeat the advantage of decentralisation ? or are you thinking many such zones ?
mircea_popescu: by the time our automated batteries defend our own mining bots and nobody else can even be online unless they're doing what told, "decentralisation" per se is a rather meaningless concept.
mircea_popescu: decentralization is only meaningful in a structure which permits centrality.
mircea_popescu: much like whining to mommy works in the middle class "atomic family" not in the orphanage.
pete_dushenski: by that time there will also be a handful of accepted definitions of "online", none intersecting.

( if not , also say, then i'ma run it without waiting )
asciilifeform: roughly speaking, the data set can double in mass one more time, before asciilifeform has to ask for a mechanical disk to be fitted to dulap ( writing 256+GB/day will annihilate ssd in a coupla months ) and get used to much slower run
asciilifeform: ( the box i'm sitting on just this minute, actually staggered over whole year )
mircea_popescu: it's that paredit violates fundamental principle, that it encourages and enforces the work flow of manual formatting on every line. << ftr, i think he has an excellent point.
spyked: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-05-06#1810568 <-- hey asciilifeform, sorry for the late reply on this. what do you think about throwing an instance of my experimental rss bot in a separate chan (say, #phuctor) to spit however many new phuctorings? it's not fit for #t yet (deedbot self-voicing not yet ready) and not 100% stable yet, but it'd give me a chance to test it; and you to give me a kick in the rear if it doesn't work.
a111: Logged on 2018-05-06 17:52 asciilifeform: trinque: no particular reason to try to fix
spyked: could also add a (similarly: yet experimental) logger bot into the mix
spyked: and of course, thing can advertise rss via pm as well. but I'll only post public details about the bot as soon as I'm fairly confident that it won't shatter upon douchebag's first attempt to exploit it.
asciilifeform: spyked: it already arrives to me via pm from deedbot, see log. and deedbot misses ~20% of the output, and i suspect yours will also
asciilifeform: spyked: feel free to make a chan and test your bot, so long as i do not have to do anything
spyked: aha. my reply was strictly re the "place to follow phuctorings other than #t" subj. not sure whether this is needed. if ppl here find any value in something similar to #chainstate for phuctor, then I can do this pretty easily.
spyked: (with the caveat that the available infrastructure is still very much under test/wip)
mircea_popescu: anyway. bitcoin is bitcoin. the various "i can't believe it's not bitcoin" scams the usg has been trying to push are just that, margerine ~nobody cares about (notwithstanding every nigger out there is trying to pretend like they're eating it an' lovin' it)
asciilifeform: the other thing, ben_vulpes : ~where~ updated ? it is terrible form to make people do 'eyeball diff' with old copy ( supposing they have one handy )
ben_vulpes: asciilifeform: the next item after setting Mocky up with python cgi on UY1 (dear lord, it never ends) will be to databize our customer list, ip assignations, rack assignations, subscriptions etc. i will then reproduce your calculator with actual numbers.
mircea_popescu: it'll be denied. and the denial will "stick" in the sense luke skywalker really has a "laser sword", for as long as you stay in battlestar galactica universe or w/e the scientology fanfic was. because, for better or worse, http://btcbase.org/log/2017-08-28#1704268

asciilifeform: !Q later tell jurov plz tell me how you obtained the KEYID in the 'phathub' collection; and more generally how the scan was made...
lobbesbot: asciilifeform: The operation succeeded.
asciilifeform: !Q later tell ben_vulpes i oughta elaborate re http://btcbase.org/log/2018-05-09#1811686 : neither rockchip ( nor any device in its price range, afaik ) has any mechanism for netbooting, that does not at the same time reside in something the previous user could have overwritten ( flash rom ). on top of this, rockchip has ~no~ onboard flash , nor can it boot from usb without a valid bootloader ~on sd~ . so a new tenant requires a refr
a111: Logged on 2018-05-09 19:52 ben_vulpes: asciilifeform: in re production rockchip plant, is it feasible to, with some netboot magic, bring a rockchip up with a specific ssh key emplaced?
lobbesbot: asciilifeform: The operation succeeded.
ben_vulpes: i figured that something like this was the case and appreciate the followup
lobbesbot: ben_vulpes: Sent just now: <asciilifeform> i oughta elaborate re http://btcbase.org/log/2018-05-09#1811686 : neither rockchip ( nor any device in its price range, afaik ) has any mechanism for netbooting, that does not at the same time reside in something the previous user could have overwritten ( flash rom ). on top of this, rockchip has ~no~ onboard flash , nor can it boot from usb without a valid bootloader ~on sd~ . so a new tenant requires a refr
asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: nao the problem ~could~ be finessed with custom hardware. but not with something that can be built quickly.
asciilifeform: how , for instance, would you propose to match up who paid with their box ? send creds ? ( what, via plaintext shitmail ?? )
asciilifeform: it does not make any sense to attempt to do business with folx who won't pgp
ben_vulpes: i'm not necessarily loathe to give up the "dump pubkey and sshkey in hole, pay invoice, receive server deets at this url encrypted to your key" model, but i worry the irc demands are an unnecessary salting of friction
asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: if $luser won't irc, how is he to access pizarro for support/maintenance/payment q's ?
ben_vulpes: there is also the concern of every customer now gotta be rated, likely by me, which puts me in the nanotube position
BingoBoingo: And the professional opinion came in today. Keep taking the same antibiotic, same dose for 10 more days and if it isn't substantially better in a week chest X-ray. Also was recommended a different anti-mucus syrup.
trinque: make sure you get your gut critters in order after dropping nukes on them
BingoBoingo: As as humid as it is here, I don't want mushrooms growing inside me. It's a river valley so everyone is assumed to be carrying histoplasmosis
BingoBoingo: In other local investigations: urology here consists of boner drugs of assorted dosages, quantities, and prices http://archive.is/vfL5y while psych drugs consist of lithium, an antipsycotic, melatonin, and a bunch of herbal stuff (one of which is a rather active MAOI) http://archive.is/36Okq
mod6: asciilifeform: I did bring back tb0t here. I think I just forgot to restart it after some planned downtime on my host. Anyway, if we wanted to use it for Pizarro, I'm open to that but it may need some alterations.
mod6: And we should probably discuss some details about how it should work, etc. (For instance, would L1 only be able enter tickets, or would all clients, or anyone?) That kinda thing.
mod6: douchebag: once you get through you're current pile of requested work, I think I have some pen testing for you to do on tb0t. We can arrange a time, later on. (That is, of course, if you want to.)
douchebag: mod6: I think pentesting a bot would be pretty fun and in my area of expertise, I'll definitely be interested in arranging that once completed work is finished
mod6: Ok cool, holler when the current items are finished.
