lobbes: btw, I managed to finally get a handrolled heathen gentoo installed the other day (my first one ever). Still wrestling with getting networking functional, but once I do I'ma get vtools set up, and then give the cuntoo bootstrap.sh another spin

asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i dunlike shit urls anymoar than anyone else, it's down there on conveyor , somewhere below the various roaring fires
a111: Logged on 2018-09-04 14:50 mircea_popescu: alright. so basically, we have a july latest-kernel from alf at http://nosuchlabs.com/pub/conf_current.conf << diana_coman trinque erryone else interested read and see if it works for you / comment ?
mircea_popescu: well, after the first one in much better position for guess.
asciilifeform: ( consider how long took to clean , to reasonable level of non-sepsis, trb -- a 200x smaller product )
asciilifeform: http://btcbase.org/log/2019-02-10#1894768 << nao if only ocr actually worked. ( asciilifeform admits, never had much enthusiasm for 'let's preserve gutenberg' on acct of most of it being ~unreadable, even the orig jpegs or whatnot are often '90s-quality and wtf to do with'em but throw out, and ditto the text )

a111: Logged on 2019-02-04 16:41 asciilifeform: http://flibusta.is is asciilifeform's routine 'gutenberg', been a while since i looked at the actual one
mircea_popescu: omfg Mocky_ how do i link to a specific comment on your site!111
asciilifeform: the anglosads, near as i can tell, scanning in their shakspeares and... never touched again.
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: The solution to OCR is castle scribes spending man centuries, as mircea_popescu is deploying with Bimbo
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: the other solution is that the folx who did the orig scan actually give half a shit and proofread. but this is evidently not ever happening in anglostan outside of dedicated effort like mircea_popescu's
mircea_popescu: check out that horror, <div class="exampleblock"> <div class="content"> <div class="dlist"> <dl> <dt class="hdlist1">. and of course i can't use #hdlist1 because all comments are hdlist1.
mircea_popescu: what am i gonna do now, exclude linking him cuz admin reasons ? scandal!
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: flibusta mirror was ~100G last i looked. of ~ascii text~ .
asciilifeform: ( well technically 'koi' txt, but still , txt, not bitmapolade )
asciilifeform: diff is, those b00kz, from marshak's transl of shakespeare to the lowest pulp liquishits, ~get read~
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform only reason they scan in "their" shakespears WHICH NEVER WERE NOR WILL EVER BE THEIRS, http://btcbase.org/log/2017-09-09#1711670 africans as they are, is so that they can add their self-important vomit up top. "copyrights blablabla" didntcha know.
BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> (but, in other good news, your pingback thing also works fine.) << ty, Lardner set me on a re-reading binge
mircea_popescu: people HERE fcuking love it. bought an armful of roses few days ago, dood selling it was like "that's a great hat, mr! say, when you're done with it, don't throw it out, throw it at me, i'd love to have it."
mircea_popescu: trinque is it actually the case that cuntoo can't boot off a non-first drive ? if so easy enough to check.
trinque: yeah, I'm specifying root=/dev/sda3 in lilo; whereas if I specified root=UUID=D9FCABCA-1F52-4A84-9CB8-4898F8DEC6AE, oughta be able to boot properly even if drive enumeration changes. that'd be nice for the infectious/reproductive angle later.
trinque: but even if the kernel knew it was there, if that disk wasn't "sda", nah, wouldn't work. this didn't stick out at me because "bootstrapper" grew out of my own tooling for stamping out an internal boot disk for new machine.
mircea_popescu: well at least this got somewhere. mod6 does the ^ make sense ?

phf: i saw the x11 thread, will respond in a day or two once i'm on a more reliable internet
asciilifeform: phf et al : 1 of asciilifeform's ancient backburner crackpotteries is... an iron x terminal. ( these -- existed, but would be imho useful to have a proper one, that 1) runs off rom 2) can drive N large displays )

a111: Logged on 2017-07-18 22:58 asciilifeform: whaack is quite likely thinking of the bulk of the b00k, which consists of blockcipher liquishit which is complicated for no reason at all other than the religion where 'it is confusing to ME, author, and therefore Must Be Hard To Break'
trinque: curious things, these factual realities that evaporate the moment random bum says otherwise.
BingoBoingo: Notice I didn't use the Pantsuit term. If anything we ought to preserve 'deadnaming' in our namespace for characters like bitcoin_charlie, Nefario, Taaki, Toomim, et al. Actual dead names whether or not the corresponding meat recieves oxygen.
trinque: republic already had it, as "damnatio memoriae"
BingoBoingo: Still, there's a benefit in having synonyms to erode their namespace
BingoBoingo: So long as there is resistance to what Pantsuit means by deadnaming and clarity as to what the Republic means, they gotta expend some of their infinite hitpoints of idiocy fighting the sorts of socialists like Anglin who want a different sort of socialist femstate
