~ 1 hours 40 minutes ~
01:48 asciilifeform mats: lost count of the 0days for that thing
01:49 asciilifeform there's a bottomless well of these, just like for mswin and whatever other ball of overflowandcrashlang liquishit
~ 11 hours 26 minutes ~
13:16 PeterL asciilifeform: arrows are just as easy as lines, just use drawdblarrow instead of draw. There are even options to control things like the angle and length of the arrowheads.
13:26 PeterL I updated the article to show the version with arrows.
~ 1 hours 29 minutes ~
14:56 asciilifeform PeterL: neato!
14:58 PeterL I feel like I have barely scratched the surface of this, it seems like it has lots of potential.
15:01 asciilifeform indeed

16:19 asciilifeform wholly unrelatedly to anyffin, on the off chance anyone finds himself in this situation, the only unit (of half dozen tested) found to work 100% was the 'SNAOC20V201A' by 'ruipro'.
16:19 dulapbot Logged on 2022-01-09 22:10:04 asciilifeform: goes back to search for '4k' display-over-fiber cables that actually work, to run through the 25m conduit he had built on sat.
16:21 asciilifeform the plugs get rather warm (not quite 50c) but seemingly to no consequence (at least in near term.)
16:21 asciilifeform doesn't require external power supply, interestingly, unlike some of the cheaper chinesiums
16:23 * asciilifeform nao will need similar item for kbd/mouse/serial..
16:25 asciilifeform ftr the emitter is a 'gcs1964' kvmtron.
16:28 asciilifeform ftr x2 ruipro's 'high end' green '8k' fibertron does work, but they fughot to implement the 'turn monitor off via gpu' thing, if you use it (and asciilifeform does, if simply cut power to displays -- e.g. winblows boxes 'fughet' order of displays) you will be disappointed
16:29 asciilifeform the black (and 1/2 cost) '4k' cord -- worx 100%.
16:30 asciilifeform ( for the innocent : this kinda thing is used if distance b/w emitter and display is in excess of 10m or so )
~ 19 minutes ~
16:49 asciilifeform unrelatedly, received a tip that old lulcow mike hearn has reemerged as a 'covid skeptic' (dollars to doughnuts, in role as reich provocateur/tame oppositioner)
16:52 asciilifeform ( for the innocent: that fella )
16:52 dulapbot Logged on 2019-12-24 23:52:02 asciilifeform: shinohai: not simply arbitrary 'folx', but specifically continuation of nsa attempt ( of which hearn was public face ) to turn bitcoin into an item where 2 boxes actually forced to exchange packets directly for their operators to transact

19:00 mats "NFT Investors Owe Billions in Taxes as U.S. Officials Crack Down"
19:05 asciilifeform mats: lulzy. will be interesting to see wat happens when turns out that ~none of the moneys actually exist to be collected.
19:06 asciilifeform (either cuz imaginary to begin with, or cuz spent ~immed. to replay in shitcoin casino)
19:06 asciilifeform '“You don’t get to not report gains or losses because the IRS has failed to provide guidance that meets your expectations,” said San Francisco-based tax attorney...' << a+++
19:08 mats heh
19:09 mats "Some people aren’t aware they owe taxes quarterly and may already face penalties for just filing an annual return, said TokenTax’s co-founder, Zac McClure. " nuts
19:10 mats i don't even want to know how quarterly taxes work
19:11 * asciilifeform sadly knows quite a bit re how they work
19:12 asciilifeform (usa) yer supposed to pony up at least 1/4 of whatcha brought in in ~prev~ yr
19:12 asciilifeform ('estimated')
19:13 asciilifeform after 1y, you pay (or, theoretically, refunded) the diff.
19:13 * asciilifeform ianal, but subject to this torment, so knows basics
19:15 mats ahh, withholding
19:17 PeterL my wife (self employed) submits quarterly taxes. There is some formula to get a number based on the estimated tax for the coming year, essentially it replaces the auto-withholding from paystubs
19:18 PeterL if you only owe a bit or get a refund, not having done quarterly submission is not a big deal. If you end up owing a bunch of taxes and you didn't send quarterlies then they charge you interest retroactively, iiuc
19:21 mats since we're doing taxes again, this is available for at least another year, and ibkr charges low fees (0.12-0.18%) that makes it easier
19:23 asciilifeform quarterly taxation in usa is largely for when yer 'paid in money' rather than part of a formal employment w/ a us-based co
19:23 mats i think gemini activetrader is next cheapest, at 0.35% for trade vol under 500k usd
19:26 mats and in other news, Fidelity suggested that a central bank might buy bitcoins this year

22:18 scoopbot New post on Loper OS: "Pest" v. 0xFC.
22:18 asciilifeform ^ ACHTUNG, thimbronion , jonsykkel , et al ^
22:18 asciilifeform q's / comments invited.
22:20 * asciilifeform made afaik all of the pending corrections, + moar
22:23 asciilifeform incl. clarifications of 'getdata', 'addrcast', and hearsay broadcast handling.
22:25 asciilifeform also incl. e.g. notes re ICMPism.
22:26 asciilifeform sect. 'fundamental mechanisms' revised as prev. discussed here.
22:28 asciilifeform billymg (and any other mirrorists) : plox to update your mirror.
~ 15 minutes ~
22:44 * asciilifeform found already coupla typos, will fix'em in the 0xFB working draft in coming days.
22:53 * asciilifeform in particular specified mechanism whereby messages will generally not find their way to stations which already have'em, substantially lightening load on deduplicator
22:53 asciilifeform still need a working deduplicator tho, obv.
22:55 asciilifeform grr idjit mistake in Receiving a Broadcast Message: Common Epilogue -- final sentence oughta read 'or every member NOT in Rb' !
22:56 * asciilifeform might need to issue 0xFB sooner rather than later, this is rather 'bomb'
22:56 asciilifeform err, 'NOT in R'
22:56 asciilifeform grr
22:58 * asciilifeform will give folx time to write in w/ moar of these prior to cutting next ver.
23:03 asciilifeform << even if 100% prophetic, seems to point to even moar paperization than ever before, rather than less
23:03 dulapbot Logged on 2022-01-14 14:28:10 mats:
23:08 mats nothing wrong with paperization
23:15 mats intro of the futures product that killed the dec2017 rally was a good thing
23:17 mats bitcoin had no business going to 20k
23:20 mats i don't discount the theory that there might be some conspiracy by fiatists to control bitcoin, but stuff like "buterin's waterfall" is a little on the nose imho, it lacks nuance
23:21 mats i.e. there is but also, we know that bitcorns are extremely hoarded, and that the ratio of trade volume to liquidity is enormous compared to other assets
23:21 dulapbot Logged on 2021-12-29 22:23:58 mats: the 24/7 trading and liquidity is why volatility is so high, whenever the wind blows, folk can make emotional trades
23:23 mats volatility is a structural problem, and sure, the rich and patient disproportionately benefit from it
23:23 mats but its not remotely a problem for longs
23:25 mats when large hodlers feel that it is no longer underpriced, more coins will move, and volatility will go down
23:27 mats paperization isn't a problem, its a signal that the market is adolescent and maturing
23:27 mats complaints about it remind me of musk and others who whine about tesla shorts
23:28 mats reality is, if the thing is actually under- or appropiately priced, shorts are paying the longs, and the latter fucking loves it, its not a problem
23:29 mats they want more shorts, not less
23:31 mats bitcoin paperization was always inevitable because of the relatively low transaction thoroughput and fee market
23:31 mats and the more paper products there are, the closer the market gets to accurately discovering the price
