<mircea_popescu> asciilifeform the one thing that blows my mind is the compartimentalization. "you either own the computer or else work for the usg" is somehow self-evident ; "you either own the woman or else work for the usg" is magically not, because "it was not clear to me dks was the woman in our relationship, what is the similarity between the dangly-bait cunt in each case ?!?!?!"
<mircea_popescu> "the similarity is that a) you want it and b) it's worthless". "oh!"

<asciilifeform> the sinners in the story aren't even dks et al, but the http://btcbase.org/log/2018-12-21#1882442 folx, the 'masonic oaths' they swear are largely ~to each other~, creating a hitler out of vacuum

<mircea_popescu> nfi what there's to like about orgmode, and especially it's not clear how you distinguish it from "excel vbasic for emacs"
<mircea_popescu> "literate programming" MY FOOT! that piece of shit is the ~exact antithesis~ of literate programming, it's illiterate excel-ing. and i do not for a second believe that the "misnomer" is accidental -- it's exactly usg-deliberate. nor do i think the mention on the original dork's blog is accidental.
<mircea_popescu> "oh but mp, while it can be used that way, that's not the way i use it". whopee.
<mircea_popescu> retrofiring revolver also fits this bill.
<asciilifeform> mircea_popescu: where did the orgmode d00d discuss pdfism ?
<mircea_popescu> man, i just quoted it didn't i ?
<mircea_popescu> http://archive.is/wEX7b#selection-877.0-889.6
<asciilifeform> loox like he was quoting some rando's use case. himself, he uses it to write .txt for the blog.
<asciilifeform> ( fwiw asciilifeform tried 'orgmode' at length, decade ago, but didn't like, found that it does ~90% of what i needed, and the remaining 10% felt like same amt of work as simply using plain txt files + grep entirely. )
<asciilifeform> as for the quoted d00d, who '.org -> .tex -> .pdf', dollars to doughnuts he's an academic and chained to that oar.
<mircea_popescu> i can't discern what argument you're brining in there.
<asciilifeform> that it's a quote from 3rd party ?
<mircea_popescu> is it you protest the exact flavour of anathema ("oh mp, it's not usg.corporate idiocy, it's usg.academia idiocy" ?) or what exactly.
<mircea_popescu> so ?
<asciilifeform> so mircea_popescu quotes all sorts, e.g. gavin, in various pieces. does this mean that mircea_popescu endorses gavinism ?
<mircea_popescu> when ~i~ quote from an idiotic third party, you know this is going down, by the presence of the word idiot in there.
<asciilifeform> so is orig thread re how orgmode rots brains, or that linked blogist writes insufficiently mircea_popescuinely?
<mircea_popescu> orig thread is re how "here looky, case of orgmode rotting brains"
<asciilifeform> ('orgmode' per se aint very interesting, it's just an elisp script that lets you shuffle wads of txt as linked lists)
<mircea_popescu> eh, if only. it ~runs arbitrary snippets of code~. it is 100% vbasic.
<asciilifeform> that'd be 'calc', a diff emacs plugin.
<mircea_popescu> "reproducible research", do you know what they actually mean by ~that~ term hijack ?
<mircea_popescu> i dunno if you follow this, but the way through which "golf club pattern" idiocy existed is exactly this sort of "automation" : i """scientist""" downloaded an excel from the internet and it spat out in my cell what the website said it spits so therefore EXPERIMENT VERIFIED
<asciilifeform> mircea_popescu: quite familiar with academi-scam, having been sadly involved on production end
<mircea_popescu> well that's your orgmode, neh.
<asciilifeform> mircea_popescu: ~that~ is good % of what passes for tooling errywhere. i.e. mechanisms to clean up piles of shit left by others.
<asciilifeform> i refer to it as perlism.
<mircea_popescu> i do not agree.
<asciilifeform> i dun even ~like~ or use 'orgmode'. but must dispute the 'folx who write elisp proggies are destructive zombies and class enemy' blanket.
<mircea_popescu> not "piles of shit left by others". specifically, i pompously declare myself "literate programatician", what this does is, vbasic autorun ; i pompously declare myself "respectable scientificist", what this does is, i download an excel script, watch its vbasic reproduce the same errors of http://trilema.com/2013/why-mpex-is-better-than-fiat-institutions-part-349085-we-dont-use-excel/#selection-143.0-153.147 and declare i have
<mircea_popescu> thereby verified something.
<mircea_popescu> whether you're aware of this or not : 2000s era standards of usgtronic "science" had decayed to the point where, running some random virus off the internet was deemed as "independent verification". literally this, "i downloaded a bunch of numbers and a vbasic script off a website, it ran on my machine to the same result as it ran on publisher's machine, THEREFORE ALLEGED EXPERIMENT HAS BEEN INDEPENDENTLY VERIFIED"
<asciilifeform> there's euglena in the water, yes. but in this case mircea_popescu is seeing dust on microscope lens.
<mircea_popescu> this was the wikipedia golden age, and it left us with "social sciences" and "earth sciences" and code of conducts and so on.
<mircea_popescu> which dust is this then ?
<asciilifeform> afaik the 'golf clubs' people are 100% using actual microshit spreadshit, not emacses.
<mircea_popescu> well, orgmode gives them the option to either.
<asciilifeform> it could if it actually did same thing, lol
<mircea_popescu> and speaking of wikipedia : "Almost orthogonally, Org-mode has functionalities aimed at executing code in various external languages ; these functionalities form org-babel, "A Multi-Language Computing Environment for Literate Programming and Reproducible Research."
<mircea_popescu> retrofiring revolver alfie. your not using it that way has no bearing.
<asciilifeform> you can put whatever you like in an elisp, incl. shell callouts, just like in bash, noose at 11
<asciilifeform> it's an ordinary revolver. ( of very small calibre. )
<mircea_popescu> but ~a certain kind of putting~ has ~a specific name~.
<mircea_popescu> "oh mp, just because orgmode evidently made by a certain kind of idiots to support their specific idiocy doesn't mean anything ; and also, when the necessary fruits of that labour of love start pdf-ing their way to the surface, that's just coincidental 3rd party linkage". how far ?
<asciilifeform> i suppose for certain kinds of people, 'hammer' is what you use to smash own thumb. for some other kinds, heads. but as far as i'm concerned it's for nails.
<mircea_popescu> dood didn't "accidentally omit" the string "idiot" in "check out this moron, spits out pdfs". it was omitted for reasons that have something to do with what orgmode fundamentally is.
<asciilifeform> if maggot had never found emacs, as most do not, will maggot on top of sumthingelse.
<mircea_popescu> i expect this is true.
<asciilifeform> ( and the thing, as detailed at length in prev threads, is groaning under the weight of actual wreckers, who poettering-'obsoleted' the working, useful plugins and replaced with ruby, etc 'kraft cheese', e.g.,

<mircea_popescu> hey, open source allows people to improve and extend.

<mircea_popescu> so then why tolerate them ?
<mircea_popescu> and if you do, how's irreal dork supposed to ever figure out what he's doing is morally reprehensible ?
<asciilifeform> i can't think of any reason to tolerate. but i also dun have a from-the-ground replacement for emacs per se.
<mircea_popescu> if nobody ever tells greenblatt "do not play on monkey team", what, is greenblat supposed to what, figure it out all on his own ?
<mircea_popescu> asciilifeform discussion wasn't re emacs, was re some rando blogger.
<asciilifeform> rando blogger which i historically read for elispism.
<mircea_popescu> so more power to you.
<asciilifeform> ( he's pretty close to full-bore snoar naodays, tho. i delouse that linkbar not nearly as often as oughta, beginning to suspect )
<mircea_popescu> you asked me if i spit on things merely because i do not use them ; i explained teh reasoning thereof. i dun expect you to ~do~ something as a result of this, besides i guess saying "oh, i see what your issue is"
<asciilifeform> some people dunlike dogs, for instance, and refer to'em as armored personnel carriers for fleas. in this case so happens that i like dog. so interested in whether mircea_popescu was going from a 'dogs, who needs'em' angle or spotted flea in particular.
<mircea_popescu> or not see, either way, i'm just saying, "no, it's not that i spit because i do not use ; but vice versa".
<mircea_popescu> in other vaguely related line, person recently pointed out "you know, your screen+vi&bash combo is almost like emacs for retards", to much private merriment.
<asciilifeform> in point of fact there are serious design flaws in emacs that make dog/flea separation extremely difficult. but iirc we already had that thread not long ago.
<asciilifeform> for instance, asciilifeform has '9000' processes on this and other boxen, where uses 'screen+bash+etc for tards' even though theoretically 'could emacs' ( see also e.g. http://btcbase.org/log/2018-11-03#1869024 ) , because they ~must not crash~ and emacs is unthreaded and hosable

<mircea_popescu> aha! that was my exact line also. "glhf, bsoemacs"
<asciilifeform> and , not unrelatedly, asciilifeform sees the great crime of rms , to specifically be his pushing of 'kraft cheese' emacs + toolchains as 'just as good as real thing', witness e.g. https://archive.is/ws2qk#selection-5591.110-5591.271
<asciilifeform> ( on actual lispm, in working condition, there was ~no such thing as 'crash' )
<mircea_popescu> i can absolutely see the angle.
<mircea_popescu> here is sound "just like rms", but why ? cuz where's the real one keks.
<mircea_popescu> too busy whining about imaginary laptops and inane bs like that.
<asciilifeform> and, like mircea_popescu , i also dun buy the excuse that 'lispm was expensive, i HAD to write kraft cheese for cheap micros'
<asciilifeform> oughta have instead died trying to close that mg embrasure.
<asciilifeform> it dun take THAT many moar transistors to build non-overflowable-arithm etc. iron.
<asciilifeform> ( certainly not the 2 ~billion~ intel crapola put for tlb cache so that microshit can be slightly less molasses )
<asciilifeform> lm was 'expensive' cuz hand-sewn from 74xxx. but just 4 yrs after rms went off to derp with unix, thing fit on single crystal, just like i386, it's the item in asciilifeform's vivisection table in fact.
<asciilifeform> ( and in same interval went from aston-martin to toyota price. and could've proceeded to motorcycle price if the co were run by smart folx.)
<asciilifeform> from my pov it's hilariously funny, that rms et al ~set the table~ for microshit.
<asciilifeform> that's what peddling 'just as good as actual cheese' does, in the end -- sets the table for 'hey i have a just-as-just-as-good , with flashier gui and endorsement from ibm' etc.
<asciilifeform> intel did 'even better', by rolling the field back to ~before time of babbage~, who, recall, managed to eat ~20% of brit empire budget simply on promise of baking ~log table~ without eggogs ( and , arguably in a kind of 19th c. bolix affair, succeeded but overran cost to death )

<BingoBoingo> ^ Well, the clock is ticking
<BingoBoingo> Headed for Andrew Jackon style breakdown if Trump gets a third pick
<asciilifeform> BingoBoingo: d00d won't even use the few buttons that still connected to anyffing. (e.g. could've easily pardoned those derps of his that the pantsuits recently jailed )
<asciilifeform> there's 0 on paper to keep him from 'you can have all the freisler trials you like, i'ma pardon erryone'
<asciilifeform> BingoBoingo: 'his' judges aint even his in any particular sense. ( observe that he had to appoint 'respectable' derps, rather than e.g. his own children or whatever loyals , to court )
<asciilifeform> iirc i said this after end of yr1 of trumpreich, 'guess what, still can't tell who is in white house by looking out of my window'. and can say it again at end of 2nd yr. machine is built for continuation of 'biz as usual' at all costs, and will work while it has physically with what.
<asciilifeform> d00d knows that if he tries to push buttons that are nominally connected to sumthing, will 'slip in bathtub' and replaced with bush III or whoever.
<asciilifeform> so stuck pushing the ones that make various arcade noises.
<BingoBoingo> As far as I can tell other than the young Barron, his children ain't all that loyal
<asciilifeform> presumably it's satisfying, tho i cannot fathom how.
<asciilifeform> cattle dun revolt, and castrated cattle dun even stampede. during obummer reign, police pushed, what, 10mil ameri-sads out of 'their' houses, which left to rot; and at cost of what, 1, 2 dead sheriffs ?
<asciilifeform> even the gassed jews, to this day infamous for boarding the trains 'orderly', nailed moar germans than this.
<asciilifeform> ( iirc somewhere north of a thousand, just in warsaw )
<asciilifeform> ameritardia boasts, what, 1 john stack ? who killed what, 1 night-shift usg janitor.
<asciilifeform> BingoBoingo: if sad old man had even 1 squad of actual loyal men, there's be tanks bulldozing harvard and rape camps for the http://trilema.com/2013/rape-is-fun-or-lets-fuck-up-adria-richards etc
<asciilifeform> but instead, 'biz as usual', no tanks on street, only the garbage truck (which is late again..)
<mircea_popescu> hopefully soon to be permanent, that shutdown.
<mircea_popescu> pretty much the only way left to go, to these ~irrelevant~ old men with their imaginarily valuable bolix stack : they're cordially invited to withdraw into eternal slumber, like fucking moses. in three to five thousand years some virgin in rural bumfuck somewhere can quote to us "what the truth REALLY WAS 'according to the democratic party'".
<mircea_popescu> if you think about it, no other possible solution than "we weren't defeated by events, we merely withdrew into imagination"
<mircea_popescu> http://btcbase.org/log/2018-12-21#1882599 << could have done a lot more than that : could have dissolved cia ~and~ declassived all documents, permanently, in same executive order.

<mircea_popescu> since you speak of nixon (whose principal problem upon assuming office for the first time was 'how to limit influence of pantsuits over at cia')
<BingoBoingo> Given both Bush and Hussein Bahamas are CIA legacy admits, it is possible to reread Snowden as a possible CIA plant sent to knock down ambitions of growing competitor NSA
<mircea_popescu> in other minutia, i just took possession of ~custom made house slippers~. because you can't fucking buy leather slippers anymore for the love of fuck, "plastic should be enough for everyone".
<mircea_popescu> by "cia" i mean 100% of government-sponsored "intelligence community", including all "agencies" and the respective subreddits.
<mircea_popescu> simply defund the entire thing. not like it does anything useful ~for trump~. 100% janissary corps.
<BingoBoingo> Well, good chunk of CIA.DEA.NSA.FBI revenue is their own drug trafficking operations (though apparently the Chinese are now beating them in the opiates market)
<BingoBoingo> The popular MAGA-redditista theory appears to be Trump playing to take intelligence community shit to give to Immigration and Customs Enforcement as new A-team
<BingoBoingo> Which... why not conspiracy theory a junta of county sheriffs
<asciilifeform> http://btcbase.org/log/2018-12-21#1882613 << soon as bernanketron runs outta green ink -- then yes

<asciilifeform> ( tried the 'premium grades', it's == crapola but for idjits, like most ameri-'premium' materiel )
<asciilifeform> http://btcbase.org/log/2018-12-21#1882622 << it's exactly janissary corps. ( and so i suppose we'll know that he tried if his head ends up 'defunded' like the last d00d's )

* BingoBoingo going to primarly be consuming Lechón as the dietary protein while it's in season. Shit's running ~200-300 per kilo.
<BingoBoingo> pesos that is
<asciilifeform> lol
<asciilifeform> i was about to say
<BingoBoingo> Last year this time a 100 peso note was roughly similar to a 4 USD bill. Now the same 100 peso note has almost fallen to be a 3 USD bill.
<BingoBoingo> Anyways, seasonality is a helluva thing. Chicken doesn't get that cheap here.
<asciilifeform> http://btcbase.org/log/2018-12-21#1882615 << the ameritards 'retreated into imagination' when they gave up industry. it aint precisely news.

<asciilifeform> it's pretty surreal experience, in asciilifeform's archaeology room , when going over pile of boards stamped 'made in usa'
<asciilifeform> feels exotic, almost like if were 'сделано в ссср'.
<asciilifeform> speaking of 'made in usa' weird : asciilifeform finally hunted down a rom burner that'll do those PALs : it's a 5kg behemoth that's driven by... dos box, via parallel port.
<asciilifeform> the vendor, 'bp microsystems', interestingly still in biz. and STILL offers the dos proggy for dload!
<mircea_popescu> BingoBoingo yeah, let them either earn their walking legs or go under.
<asciilifeform> ( talk about longevity. turns out , PALs/GALs still used in all sortsa critical systems, errywhere, from nuke plant to bulldozer )
<mircea_popescu> asciilifeform i have no use for the synthetic "textile" bs.
<asciilifeform> mircea_popescu: it's ~toiletpaper
<asciilifeform> + cardboard.
<asciilifeform> pretty miserly even on faux-textile, naodays.
<mircea_popescu> yes, well, i ain't gonna buy that.
* asciilifeform walks on just this side of the razor's edge of 'fucking, i'ma make own shoes'
<BingoBoingo> Should have went to Pitty Shoes before they closed up shop
<asciilifeform> already living with having to make own fucking arithmetron.
<asciilifeform> why not also boots.
<asciilifeform> BingoBoingo: at least 'tits' is still in biz ! (is it?)
<BingoBoingo> Yeah, Tits even appears to be growing
<BingoBoingo> Whorehouse around the corner also still in business, "Fabrique de Pasta" on the corner however is not.
<BingoBoingo> Ice cream place still open as well
nicoleci has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
nicoleci has joined #trilema
* asciilifeform in other noose, generating coupla 10k test vectors for ffa ch14b. theory is great, and 'test can reveal presence of bugs but not absence'(tm)(r), but imho gotta have these
<asciilifeform> also will double as platform litmus for constanttimeitude of iron mul etc.
<asciilifeform> i'ma sign an' post these with the rest of the thing.
<asciilifeform> ( they won't be in the vpatch, tho, cuz 50MB vpatch would be a sad joke )
