00:22 punkman mats: it's only for receiving blocks iirc
00:24 verisimilitude This is good for a laugh:
~ 2 hours 44 minutes ~
03:08 asciilifeform << imho not even proper to compare : in 19th c was still possible to be physically on the landmass but not give a fuck what happens in washington or newyork
03:08 dulapbot Logged on 2021-08-25 15:56:08 gregory4: << does it not follow then that the America of the 1800s was a less exploitative and more honest society than that of today?
03:08 asciilifeform oh hm loox like bingoboingo already said this.
03:09 asciilifeform << i was assuming that he was looking for sumthing ~other~ than what's already in mp's heap. (then again maybe not, and already found)
03:09 dulapbot Logged on 2021-08-25 17:31:51 bingoboingo: << Dunno how much table can be set. MP was a very capable librarian of his own thoughts, offered an extensive publicly readable notebook in Trilema. Do I answer his queries in Trilema/Log links?
03:11 asciilifeform << i rec to consciously remind yerself that you're taking a dopaminergic and inevitably will feel moar 'gimme a place to stand on and can move the earth!' than factually is the case
03:11 dulapbot Logged on 2021-08-25 17:51:43 bingoboingo: starting to come to the position that the moment the 20th century went to shit was Nixon's war on drugs. The transition from prop planes in the 1950's to moon rockets and the SR-71 was likely fueled entirely by easy over the counter availability of stimulants
03:12 asciilifeform ( see also : well... g. laddel ! )
03:12 asciilifeform bingoboingo: think this way -- you want to be p. erdos, not g. laddel..
03:13 asciilifeform << simple -- who echoes packets -- is 'there', who does not 'not there'
03:13 dulapbot Logged on 2021-08-25 17:55:52 thimbronion: How does asciilifeform envision transmitting presence status of already connected IRC clients to clients newly connecting on a different node?
03:13 * asciilifeform sadly not finished the essay about this yet !
03:14 asciilifeform << not clear to asciilifeform that 'nixon wrecked...' rather than simply put before the fact and ritually 'presided' over said wrecking
03:14 dulapbot Logged on 2021-08-25 18:14:46 signpost: and yeah, nixon has a lot of blame to lay at his feet. wrecked the currency also.
03:15 asciilifeform << iirc signpost hasn't been to bingoboingostan yet! i rec to go there !
03:15 dulapbot Logged on 2021-08-25 18:16:42 signpost: can show all the derps still in the zone (like me) what being free(r) looks like.
03:15 asciilifeform for asciilifeform, was a++ voyage, both times
03:17 asciilifeform << lengthy lulzhistory
03:17 dulapbot Logged on 2021-08-25 18:19:51 punkman: "Blockstream plans to launch a new crypto miner in the third quarter of 2022, said Chief Executive Officer Adam Back in emailed comments. That “will be very disruptive as traditionally miners are made in Asia,”"
03:18 thimbronion asciilifeform: I suppose I could allow server runners to associate nic's with other servers but I don't think that's quite what you mean. Nothing that can't wait until the essay is published.
03:18 thimbronion *nicks
03:18 asciilifeform thimbronion: 'tis funny, this is possibly the 1st case on asciilifeform's watch where proggy outran spec project !
03:21 asciilifeform << imho the correct medium of transmission for trb in fact would be pirate 5-30MHz.
03:21 dulapbot Logged on 2021-08-25 19:44:48 punkman: mats: you mean their satellite thing?
03:21 asciilifeform p2p, naturally, rather than similar to the linked inca-monstrosity.
03:24 asciilifeform ( see also. )
03:24 dulapbot Logged on 2019-11-18 17:16:03 asciilifeform: superkuh: re: mesh nets, so happens that i've dug into the subj, but w/out publishable results just yet.
~ 16 minutes ~
03:41 thimbronion asciilifeform: would be fun to try to broadcast alcuin packets over the radio.
03:41 asciilifeform thimbronion: these are point to point tho, not very broadcasty
03:42 asciilifeform ( erry key is shared b/w 2 stations strictly )
03:42 asciilifeform whereas in bitcoinism , a tx is a tx 'one for all of us, like victory'
03:43 thimbronion asciilifeform: true, but couldn't radio serve as a link between two nodes, which of course would be connected to other nodes via whatever local net.
03:44 asciilifeform could, of course, radio, but you'd want a moar local uhf kind, rather than 'ionospheric' shortwave
~ 2 hours 52 minutes ~

~ 1 hours 34 minutes ~
17:58 asciilifeform << prolly not, at least not as 'replay of 2008', Official reich party line is now simply to 'money printer -- brrr!' to cover any and all shortfalls there & elsewhere, i.e. general-purpose weimarism
17:58 dulapbot Logged on 2021-08-26 02:32:48 punkman: when mortgage armageddon 2.0?
17:59 asciilifeform where saw this? (iirc it's a search engine thing?) -- wasn't mentioned in the linked fishwrap

17:59 dulapbot Logged on 2021-08-26 02:33:15 punkman: apparently Zillow is buying houses now

18:54 mats they've been buying homes for years,
18:56 asciilifeform mats: they dun appear to sell anyffin directly on their www ( at least in asciilifeform's locale ) tho
19:03 mats is your locale seeing a real estate pump atm
19:03 asciilifeform mats: defo
19:04 asciilifeform vertical 'to the moon!111'-style charts
19:04 mats dank
19:04 asciilifeform ( see also prev.thread )
19:04 dulapbot Logged on 2021-07-13 14:35:50 asciilifeform: why, for instance, 'real estate up 2x' ? was there a ww2? destroyed 50% of houses in usa? no. was there mass migration, suddenly 2x as many people bidding? also no. which leaves #3 -- doubled monetary mass.
19:06 asciilifeform elementarily, 'printer goes brrr', lizards get ~0% 'loans', sell (and mostly to one another) at 300% markup, rinse, repeat
~ 32 minutes ~
19:39 mats itll be interesting when the eviction moratoriums are lifted
19:43 mats large numbers of people who have an eviction on their record entering a rental market with more units owned by commercial property managers
19:48 mats
19:50 mats these incidents seem kinda rare
~ 18 minutes ~
20:08 asciilifeform mats: doesn't look like much of a moratorium, tho -- linked piece is marked '4d ago'
20:11 asciilifeform 'Cartledge, a 7th grade student, traveled from Florida to present the grant to Waller. ... "Just a hero," Chad Cartledge said of Waller. "Despite everything that's happened, nearly losing his life, and he's still smiling."' << grade-a hitlerjugend, lol
20:11 * asciilifeform wonders how exactly these folx see themselves.
20:12 punkman my guess is ~batman
20:13 mats lol
20:14 asciilifeform the moar intellectually-bent ones i suspect believe in 'rule of law'(tm)(r)(c) and related bullshit
20:14 asciilifeform the rest, simply psychology of faithful dog. met plenty of this when was stuck working w/ types
20:15 asciilifeform the kind that -- the more beatings, the moar faithful
20:16 mats some people do the bike across the country thing and fundraise for cancer patients
20:16 asciilifeform still gotta wonder what they think when time for ~their own eviction~ and the rifle is pointing the opposite direction from before
20:16 dulapbot (trilema) 2017-02-07 asciilifeform: the folx 'with the guns and training' were raped by washington (shay's rebellion), by hoover (bonus army), by johnson (vietnam), by bush/obummer (iraq bonus withdrawal, retroactive, evictions, dekulakizations.) somehow.
20:20 asciilifeform this is why asciilifeform unable historically to muster much sympathy for 'iraq veteran, his bonus retro-withdrawn, evicted' -- motherfuckers, you could have, should have, shot 1) your officers 2) your landlord 3) anything with a harvard diploma -- half century ago. but no, gotta faithful-dog instead.
20:22 asciilifeform 'faithful dog-man' is the most contemptible, imho, commonplace species of moron.
20:23 asciilifeform he is the backbone of every totalitarian shithole there ever was.
20:24 asciilifeform the boy from linked piece is good example of the 'larval stage' of this vermin.
20:24 dulapbot (trilema) 2015-09-03 ascii_field: they happily send their sons to army so they can 'die for a fat bitch's right to marry her dog'
20:24 asciilifeform interestingly not erry man in e.g. is one of these. many privately will admit to studying translations of 'don't shoot, i know secrets!' in $lang
~ 15 minutes ~
20:40 verisimilitude This is why I've decided never to join the military as a soldier. The country has treated them horribly since its founding.
20:41 verisimilitude I can't even blame it on the cabal.
20:41 asciilifeform verisimilitude: notice that asciilifeform did not say 'don't join the army'
20:41 verisimilitude Notice I wrote ``as a soldier''.
20:41 asciilifeform do join the army, if yer the armying sort -- to study for civil war.
20:42 asciilifeform can join and work as meatrobot w/out 'drinking the coolaid'.
20:44 asciilifeform verisimilitude: the 'secret' fact is that errybody gets the treatment he's willing to put up with; and no better.
~ 1 hours 19 minutes ~
22:03 mats armying is a decent lottery, most people get out with all their limbs and no ptsd, plus some college credits and montgomery gi bill
22:05 mats some people basically finish an associates degree inside, while earning a decent middle class wage with tricare and and dental
22:06 mats i can think of plenty of people i know personally who would benefit from a few years in the army, or in prison, either is good for building structure and careful time mgmt/allocation into lost adults
22:09 mats its a 'safe' way for some to raise families
~ 26 minutes ~
22:35 asciilifeform mats: many moar naturally come back to work in police, or club bouncer, etc. and not quite 'all there' mentally (if not physically) but the brochure does not, lol, advertise ~these~
~ 39 minutes ~
23:15 mats sucks to suck
23:15 asciilifeform lolnoshit
