10:29 mircea_popescu netmonk hey, it worked so well for india... and moreover socialist "europe" SO VERY MUCH wants to be just like india that i'm not at all surprised.
10:29 mircea_popescu asciilifeform lol sounds about right.
10:31 mircea_popescu the above being the ENTIRETY of "usg cyberwarfare capacity" by the way. that it got idiots (schneier, koch, weimer etc), to write software that sets p as password everywhere independent of user input and then ten million imbecile lusers to use that "because it's what everyone does" where everyone is so defined to exclude everyone sane.
10:31 mircea_popescu supposedly this is an achievement, dunno.
10:38 asciilifeform that and overflows.
10:38 mircea_popescu overflows are pretty much that.
10:39 mircea_popescu but, be that as it may, overflows are actually republic/other fiats speciality. it's how the usg gets owned in general.
10:41 mircea_popescu and i submit the "fappening" is a fine example of how the usg-ustards close coupling works in practice, because it is. so : usg got all sorts of idiots, including for instance dreamer asset sarah schneider, to take pics of their ass and put on cloud. like so :
10:42 mircea_popescu she did this, no matter how stupid, because usg told her to ; and when usg says, she does, no matter how stupid. this is the core of her identity, she's not a woman, or a person, or a mother, or anything. she's, first and foremost, good soviet ; and anything else to the degree there's space (and usg tells her to).
10:44 mircea_popescu then the republic owned the platform known as "the cloud" and published her naked ass. and the ustards, to quote, " Even if it is her and something gets leaked let's give her and everyone listed the respect to their privacy. Though on this subreddit I'm sure it goes without saying."
10:44 asciilifeform did i sleep through announcement from obummer where '50 percent off tax if you post yer arse and you're a hot chick' ?
10:44 asciilifeform how did usg 'told her to'
10:44 mircea_popescu "i was in the situation room" hillaric clinton's case was no different ; just that in the case of that old hag / usg asset nobody is interested in ass.
10:45 mircea_popescu asciilifeform "gotta use smartphone".
10:45 mircea_popescu how did "islam" tell woman to wear shit on her face ?
10:46 asciilifeform afaik smartphone caught on ~because~ lusers like taking photos of own arse; rather than imposed so that such.
10:47 mircea_popescu so then, this exact idiocy repeats itself time and again. 1. tells ustards to use $item-which-sets-all-passwords-as-p-independent-of-user-input ; 2. ustards do. 3. republic owns them, and puts them to whatever use more adequate to their tard genes, such as fap fodder, lulzcow, whatever. 4. the usg comes up with a color of your bits "goes without saying".
10:47 mircea_popescu that's the whole comedy, and it's playing again and again and again and again. republic decides us elections ? usg claims putin did it!
10:47 mircea_popescu hurr durr.
10:47 mircea_popescu asciilifeform recall the discussion re apple/"apple" recently ?
10:47 asciilifeform which one?
10:48 asciilifeform we have one maybe every other day
10:48 mircea_popescu usg does not exist and is not held here to signify anything but the "collective abject idiocy" aka "the female mind" aka "the community consensus" etc. it is specifically NOT the case that there exists something even vaguely in the vein you think of (ie, a powerful and directed, self-conscious usg, the "lizard hitler" or such)

10:49 asciilifeform 'conscious usg' consists of 1) the weapons systems that still, in some fashion, work 2) the folx servicing them.
10:49 mircea_popescu no weapons systems work.
10:49 mircea_popescu and nobody services them.

11:27 mircea_popescu is a fine example in this vein. womenz keep looking around for men, can't find any.
11:28 mircea_popescu so it is with the orcs, and so it is with all the inferior life.
11:28 mircea_popescu it's necessarily more abundant than what it lacks ; and it does after a fashion shamble about looking for a head to screw on
11:28 mircea_popescu BRAAAAINZZZZZ
11:29 asciilifeform ...for a head to screw on ? or instead for a lion to skin and wear the skin ?
11:29 mircea_popescu from the perspective of the dogvomit these aren't meaningfully different.

11:30 asciilifeform (and for other warez in general)
11:31 gabriel_laddel_p asciilifeform: Yep. Over CLIM-beirc-wotnet, eventually.
11:31 asciilifeform gabriel_laddel_p: were you involved with the experiment described in this link ? any thoughts on replicating same in jungle conditions ?
11:32 gabriel_laddel_p asciilifeform: I was not. And presently have no ideas as to how this would be done in jungle conditions.
11:33 gabriel_laddel_p I wonder how hard it would be to "brain parasite" a community college..
11:34 asciilifeform gabriel_laddel_p: dunno that electron beam nanofabrication happens at typical 'community college'
11:34 asciilifeform and didntcha already infiltrate stanford ? do it there.
11:36 gabriel_laddel_p ftr, I was asking if there are comparable effects at EM frequencies other than visible light. I presently have no use for said technology, though it would be fun to replicate.
11:37 asciilifeform or hm, nm, you need atomic layer epitaxy rig. you will need to infiltrate a semiconductor fab.
11:37 mircea_popescu dude, fun is for rich people. go work.
11:38 asciilifeform gabriel_laddel_p: you can test this with bare hands. a metamaterial for long waves is also known as... ordinary waveguide. chandra bose made these in 1890s!
11:40 asciilifeform gabriel_laddel_p: i recommend to take the advice of mircea_popescu ! in the sense where it is a waste of brain cycles to , past certain point, design 'atomic dirigible' if you haven't with what to make it, and have no foreseeable approach to it
11:42 asciilifeform the best that can be had from such work is to leave behind 'davinci's notebook'
11:42 mircea_popescu not anymore. that worked then because relatively rare written production.
11:42 asciilifeform aha, modern 'davinci's notebooks' drown in liquishit.
11:43 mircea_popescu there's an overproduction of written material today ; writing something of that nature is exactly akin to braying in the public market. it helps no one and degrades a scarce resource.
11:43 asciilifeform consider the difficulty of getting thinking folx to so much as consider al schwartz's parity violator.
11:43 gabriel_laddel_p asciilifeform: I'm not designing an atomic dirigible. I'm catching up on all the learning I've forsaken over the past four years to build Masamune. Yes, the eventual goal is to make a lispm, but it isn't as if I'm skipping meals to do CPU design.
11:44 asciilifeform gabriel_laddel_p: 'catching up on missed learning' would look more like, say, working through exercises in feynman, say
11:44 asciilifeform rather than salivation over cutting-edge chemistries
11:45 mircea_popescu lol fabulous, he's dropped that to find a deeper fold to retreat into. who's gonna tell him he's wasting his time NAO BITCH!!!1
11:45 gabriel_laddel_p Dropped what?
11:45 mircea_popescu dude, just because you're male doesn't imply you should try and emulate ascaris lumbricoides.
11:46 mircea_popescu gabriel_laddel_p you're going the wrong direction. you don't need something MORE abstract to dick around with.
11:47 gabriel_laddel_p I'm still confused about what I dropped.
11:47 asciilifeform gabriel_laddel_p: actually i somehow assumed that you wanted the metalens so as to enable chip microphotography in kitchen conditions
11:47 asciilifeform (i.e. without electron microscope)
11:47 asciilifeform it seemed like the obvious reason.
11:47 mircea_popescu << what's this ?

11:48 mircea_popescu this is a contradiction.

11:50 mircea_popescu o you were ?
11:50 trinque hmph!
11:50 asciilifeform gabriel_laddel_p: out of curiosity, how did you go about this? (wrote svg parser from scratch? ...or welded on heathen crapola?)
11:51 asciilifeform and why svg? why not own vector graphics format, made of sexpr ?
11:54 mircea_popescu asciilifeform incidentally i fully expect whoever does the graphing work to end up with the core of what will be tmsr sexpr svg in the end.
11:55 mircea_popescu speaking of which phf you still working on that ?
11:55 gabriel_laddel_p
11:56 gabriel_laddel_p asciilifeform: I'm updating an incomplete svg parser someone else wrote + tying it to open government datasets.
11:56 gabriel_laddel_p .svgs are essentially paths you can feed to CLIM:DRAW-POLYGON*
11:57 gabriel_laddel_p shapefiles are heathen nonsense, but it turns out they can be easily converted to json, which CL has plenty of parsers for.

13:18 mircea_popescu !~later tell gabriel_laddel_p review your record. what have you made that i currently use ? useful means useful, and you're not it. that you're not it in spite of allegedly being capable rather than because incapable does not speak in your favour ; but on the contrary.
13:18 jhvh1 mircea_popescu: The operation succeeded.
13:19 asciilifeform mircea_popescu: yandex iirc.
13:20 asciilifeform found also others but that one is cheapest. (though could, now that i think about it, be cheaper still if it omitted the max232 and just spoke raw ttl 0-5v instead of proper rs232.)
13:20 mircea_popescu asciilifeform ah, no, i did test it. the converter is cheap, which means cheap. low q optics.
13:20 asciilifeform mircea_popescu: the application i am considering does not call for ultra-sensitive optics, though. 'normal people' use fiber to talk over multiple km. in my case -- a few metres, max.
13:21 mircea_popescu perfectly adequate for even 10 meter long lines. i dunno why in my head it was "multikm"
13:22 asciilifeform also apparently toslink comes with ~terrifyingly~ bad receivers, they have too much jitter to work with raw unprocessed rs232, need a manchester encoder.
13:22 asciilifeform and also they have large (comparatively) plugs, which means a ~1cm hole in shield enclosure.
13:22 asciilifeform better imho to use standard fiber and screw jacks, as seen in linked item.
13:22 mircea_popescu if you're going to do this, better use led epoxy'd into laser cut (or sharp exacto knife cut) fibers.
13:23 mircea_popescu then you only need hole as big as the fiber.
13:23 asciilifeform you don't need laser for 'few metres'
13:23 mircea_popescu well no, but if you have it already.
13:25 mircea_popescu asciilifeform ftr i have nfi what gimp these people use, but it does not sound like anything i ever used.

14:06 asciilifeform worx great.
14:07 asciilifeform (most elementary test: place pnojes, and other small but reasonably powerful rf-emitting gadgets inside, and try and connect to'em)
14:21 * asciilifeform idly wonders if at the end of this experiment he will end up with physically ~same box as what mircea_popescu made.
14:24 mircea_popescu seems to be going that way.
14:28 asciilifeform oddly enough, the biggest conundrum in 'make a microwaveable comp' seems to be... the power switch
14:28 asciilifeform so far best i can think of is a third fiber (on top of usual rx and tx) connected to phototransistor and power fet.
14:29 asciilifeform runner up is reed switch and magnet.
14:31 asciilifeform there is also mercury tilt switch, then entire unit becomes own power switch
14:31 asciilifeform but has down-sides, can waste battery during transport.

15:33 walter_ oh, no. I'm using wget to save websites locally. It relies on Last-Modified to know if it should re-download the page.
15:34 mircea_popescu so it shouldn't.

15:36 walter_ from HTTP and wget perspective, I'd say yes
15:36 walter_ but this is so common in the internet to ignore Last-Modified that you could argue ;)
15:37 mircea_popescu your tool i mean. since it's redownloading when it shouldn't.
15:38 mircea_popescu if a website doesn't provide "last modified", is it logical to assume that it never changes or that it just changed ?
15:38 walter_ there's no way to tell
15:38 mircea_popescu and if a girl is passed out, is it logical to assume she's not into getting laid, or that she's really wet for you, or also no way to tell ?
15:46 walter_ I'd say the proper way would be for articles to "change" when new comments are added, so the page would be re-downloaded
15:53 mircea_popescu the problem would be that because of how the theme works with the recent comments thing all articles "change" whenever a new comment is added/
15:54 mircea_popescu i dunno. in truth the maintenance of mp-wp is a bit in the air right now ; but if you want to make a patch by all means.
15:54 walter_ oh I get it now. There's a "recent comments" section that ruins the idea
15:55 walter_ since its dynamic content
15:55 mircea_popescu kind-of.
15:56 walter_ I'm afraid I cannot patch a PHP website. I can only suggest that it gains the ability to respond Last-Modified, perhaps at the cost of removing the dynamic section (should be fine as a separate page)
15:56 mircea_popescu well ok, but what's that do.
15:57 walter_ that would allow to optimize syncing of local website copy with the origin
15:57 mircea_popescu no i mean, the suggesting.
15:57 walter_ oh.. nothing I guess
16:00 walter_ what I'm thinking is how to efficiently replicate and update a copy of a website, to protect from e.g. somebody taking down the site, and banning in my country
16:00 mircea_popescu well, run a wget, you have the whole list of articles conveniently given in archives.
16:00 mircea_popescu then burn it on a cd or such
16:01 walter_ right. That's what I'm doing usually. The problem is updating for new articles. The "sync" takes thousands of HTTP requests
16:01 walter_ I usually add delays to not overload the server, so it runs quite long
16:02 mircea_popescu there must be some way to tell wget to not get files you already have.
16:02 walter_ there is
16:02 walter_ its doable even without Last-Modified
16:02 walter_ but not as good ofc
16:03 mircea_popescu it's not just the recent comments ; headers change daily also.
16:03 asciilifeform mircea_popescu: iirc there is only 'no-clobber'
16:03 asciilifeform which isn't quite it, iirc it still fetches (why? nfi) the unwanted files.
16:05 asciilifeform << the last wget thread.
16:05 a111 Logged on 2016-06-16 01:12 mircea_popescu: they're on a different domain, as per wordpress idiocy. and wget is apparently written by imbeciles.
16:06 mircea_popescu heh i c
16:06 asciilifeform quite typical opensores proggy.
16:07 mircea_popescu anyway, i guess in desperation bash script to curl for and then hit each article once.
16:08 asciilifeform meanwhile, in monkeystan,
16:08 asciilifeform 'Impeachment is gaining ground because it is the only way to get him out, and because Republicans are already deserting this president in droves, and because the man is psychiatrically incapable of checking whether something is legal before he does it.'
16:08 mircea_popescu heh
16:08 mircea_popescu unlike bahamas, of course
16:08 mircea_popescu who had the da lie before the supreme court.
16:09 mircea_popescu "the tax that's not a tax" very psychiatrically sound.
16:09 asciilifeform 'They are running for cover on how to kill ObamaCare without killing patients or Republican re-election hopes.'
16:09 asciilifeform lulzy piece.
16:10 mircea_popescu it is safe to say the non-sanctioned republican party wll spend the remainder of its short, unappy life running for an ever more evanescent cover.
16:10 mircea_popescu which isn't particularily surprising, who the fuck actually wants kerry or mccain.
16:12 trinque so, it's gaining ground because an online "petition" ?
16:12 trinque great job, huffpo
16:12 mircea_popescu don't tell me you don't understand "how the world works".
16:13 mircea_popescu they're gonna say it as if it's fact ; on the basis of the hordes of idiots they spawned not being capable of distinguishing fact from writ from fiction. if it catches on good ; if not the "democrat" socialist horde has no memory anyway, so they'll be right there next week importantly sprouting a novel ream of nonsense. as if it were fact ; as if they mattered.
16:14 trinque by now "we did it, reddit!" has leaked into every other rag on the net
16:14 mircea_popescu then walter_ is gonna ask me about standards, apparently on the basis of his impression that such a thing as standards can even exist without l1 signing off.
16:17 mircea_popescu and, of course, no matter what fucking happens,
16:18 mircea_popescu because, of course, "Sepan los nacidos y los que van nacer que nacimos para vencer y no para ser vencidos."
16:18 mircea_popescu and bla bla.
16:20 mircea_popescu incredible that we're still stuck fighting the fucking spanish. won't these idiots just go die already ? they fucked up an empire five centuries ago ; they're still here looking for gifted empires to fuck up.

20:51 ben_vulpes pheexd.
21:00 trinque oya?
21:01 asciilifeform ben_vulpes: neato
21:10 ben_vulpes trinque puzzlingly enough subclassing logbot and defining an ircbot-connect :after method to add the relevant hook (ctcp-action-message, in case anyone is looking for cl-irc action message hooks later) did not result in a hook landing in the connection object that the message-dispatcher would poop into
21:11 ben_vulpes so the patch is currently sitting in logbot code
21:14 trinque dunno why an :after wouldn't work
21:14 trinque there's an :around but it's politely calling call-next-method
21:16 trinque I don't think I'd want to subclass for that though, whole thing just needs to fart raw protocol lines into the db
21:16 ben_vulpes no disagreement on that point.
21:18 simonpenner so what all bitcoin stuff do you all get up to here
21:18 simonpenner since I'm noticing this trend

21:22 ben_vulpes my dong has potential
21:22 ben_vulpes trinque: i don't have the appetite for the protocol-level patch atm
21:22 asciilifeform wonder if this was kako's Seekrit Project
21:23 mircea_popescu ben_vulpes your dong actually has offspring what.
21:23 ben_vulpes i thought that was an ice cream shop
21:23 ben_vulpes mircea_popescu: moar spawn, moar potential
21:23 asciilifeform ben_vulpes: nah that was pre-braindamage kako
21:23 mircea_popescu this is a good point

21:26 ben_vulpes the odd surgical cut ain't so bad

21:26 trinque but, works
