auctionbot: Buy order # 1035: 1500 Filthy Fiats, Wired, WU, or Moneygram Opened at: 400mn ecu Winning Bid: None [Closed]
lobbes: auctionbot was down for ~9 hours today (back online now). I'm going to give a 100 ecu per auction hour credit to everyone who had auctions going during this downtime, since no one could put in bids during that time and I don't wanna charge fees for those hours. Thinking I'll make this standard policy going forward
mircea_popescu: because hey, this is optional now, yossik is at liberty to redress his stupidity or not as he well pleases, there's no obligation my intellectual superiority creates for him or anything.

mircea_popescu: coincidentally dug up article for inquiring young minds.
billymg: hanbot: thanks for checking it out, i'll take a look at the "no newline" issue and see if i can get rid of it

asciilifeform: btw the thing that set asciilifeform's ears standing originally, is that the gcd test battery appeared to give +/- 30% variant runtimes depending on hamming weights. but in 20 repeats of the trial set, the same thing showed up, and with no correlation to hamming weight. and a http://p.bvulpes.com/pastes/wherN/?raw=true ( soft barrelshifter ) version now ends up showing... same thing. i suspect that some peculiarity of the pipeline is
asciilifeform: involved (i.e. interaction with other crapola running on the box) to produce random variance
asciilifeform: thing is, this effect does not appear with e..g modexp, so i gotta find out where it comes from
