BingoBoingo: No waiting in line. My report was taken with gravity. Another sectionnal will be covering the investigation because I went to the one that covers my domicile rather than the scene of the crime.
BingoBoingo: The whole thing took 30 or 40 minutes even with the officer's pained typing. Local police roll their IT on Ubuntu...

mp_en_viaje: lawyer's skilled labour, like the barber or the gardner. you don't pay the gardner 1 night/month with your wife in exchange for the roses he gave you to give her on your first date ; you don't pay the barber one in twelve chicks you pick up in bars with his haircut, what the fuck. fair rate for fair labour and that's that -- and if it's not worth paying, guess what ? it's also not worth doing.

mp_en_viaje: (we're not counting truly powerful things like viruses and such here because, well... how the fuck are you gonna compete with that. they invented the fucking mitochondrion for crying out loud, what the fuck have you done.)
mp_en_viaje: to put it in the plainest terms : your deciding to be a father, and a proton's hitting earth are very comparable in terms of productivity. they'll do about as much, one as the other, just like "deciding" to be a beautician and "choosing" a career in waitressing will result in very comparable yearly tax returns.
mp_en_viaje: the average energy of such a proton is well measured, they peak around 0.3 GeV, which is to say ~5e−11 J, or in more everyday terms 0.0000000000000000139 kWh.
mp_en_viaje: that's the average value of fatherhood, in the grand scheme of things : the kWh retails for a coupla cents, meaning your contribution's roughly whatever you get once you're done dividing two cents to seventeen zeroes.
mp_en_viaje: that's the budget available ; balance that out with whatever it's costing you, and there you go. women do it because, generally, it costs them a negative. you do it when your subjectively expected lifetime value comes under a quadrillionth of two cents.

mp_en_viaje: this also has entirely nothing to do with it being "the correct thing to do" in the terms bois represent correctness, "does SHE want me to go there say hi to her" / "is it correct in the system's own view" bla bla.
mp_en_viaje: it works because it's the correct thing to do from the subjective perspective ; and that always betrays a certain thing to the observer.
BingoBoingo: mp_en_viaje: Well they didn't take what I printed. I printed because while my Spanish is much stronger, I wanted precision. And based on my previous interactions with Uruguayos at desks, I had rather low expectations.
BingoBoingo should also be picking up business cards Monday. The variants with and without phone number both include a GPG keyid line.
BingoBoingo: I will say yesterday the phrase "man of the future" was bouncing around in my head quite a bit.
BingoBoingo: The printing however did serve. I underplayed my confidence with the spanish language at the police station so that someone would read the whole narrative of suckage and understand something reportable is occurring.
BingoBoingo: Either theft under art 340 or theft of things of minor value under art 342 because I did observe servers running in an uncooled datacenter hall, an event that provides knowledge leaving me incapable of saying certainly whether the severs have any remaining value or not even if they do appear to function.
BingoBoingo: And I emphasized the totality of events demonstrating the basement closet, as they operate it, is an unfit place to keep IT equipment.
BingoBoingo: It isn't the one failure they want to hide behind. It is the several failures.
BingoBoingo: Police station even had a random old man civilian chilling in the lobby 1950's style. Story is he's someone's dad, but the chitchat really helped the couple minutes of wait pass while someone of sufficient rank to take a report was found.

asciilifeform: mp_en_viaje: i got last yr the (also sony, i like'em) 'a6000', but it aint quite pocket-sized
mp_en_viaje: smaller sensor therefore more optics is the tradeoff (elementarily if your final image is 50 rather than 100 m2, then in the same m3 volume you can fit ~1.5x the lenses)
mp_en_viaje: i suspect the ultimate driver being that this smaller sensor is actually way the fuck denser than the other larger.
mp_en_viaje: they figured out how to layer the photodiodes by frequency or some shit, nfi, but it works evidently.
asciilifeform: ( 'a6000' in fact goes in adult pocket if one unscrews the lens, but it's headache . the plus is that can use adult lenses. )
mp_en_viaje: asciilifeform, i dunno that web publishing drinks even 33% of the well of compacts. to go dslr... well... so you get an image 3x as good say, which once scaled for web becomes... same thing.

asciilifeform: the '6000' mostly lives in its tripod, in torture room, sadly.
mp_en_viaje: only reason i finally broke down and got a tripod was that it was cheap, and i already have a pile of car platform machinery, so what's it hurt.
mp_en_viaje: curious how long till i actually use it.
asciilifeform: mp_en_viaje: ever try using that riding crop as monopod ?
mp_en_viaje: um... how ?!
asciilifeform: they sell clamp thing that goes around arbitrary stick.
mp_en_viaje: but i mean, it's a crop. it's flexible.
asciilifeform: oh hm.
asciilifeform did not know this.
asciilifeform: then nm.
mp_en_viaje: http://logs.ossasepia.com/log/trilema/2019-10-20#1947134 << not brazen.
ossabot: Logged on 2019-10-20 14:15:43 asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: maybe it is brazen of asciilifeform , who caught 0 edible 'fish', to start w/ giants of the ocean depths, but i really want'em in. even 1.
mp_en_viaje: http://logs.ossasepia.com/log/trilema/2019-10-20#1947137 << agglutinative language ; this is what you get.
ossabot: Logged on 2019-10-20 14:19:21 asciilifeform: http://logs.ossasepia.com/log/trilema/2019-10-20#1947073 << i cannot resist to ask : hungarian kbd lacks space bar ? or they missed out on that great 12th c. invention, the whitespace ? how did this happen, mp_en_viaje ?
asciilifeform: unrelated q for iptronix gurus : wai does traceroute to diana_coman's www , show a long-dead rubbish domain on last hop ? ( netsideproductions.com ) ? is this config issue somewhere ? (afaik harmless, but i'd like to know why it happens)
mp_en_viaje: asciilifeform, there's no relation between machine names (what you see in traceroute) and websites as such.
asciilifeform: mp_en_viaje: right, but seems like there's an ancient never-flushed cache somewhere ?
mp_en_viaje: people ~never change the machine names ; websites come and go. so i'd say 1/3 to 1/2 of the internet's like that.
asciilifeform: item. (from asciilifeform's desk)
asciilifeform: mp_en_viaje: re agglutinatives -- turks, jp, also, but they have human-sized words..
mp_en_viaje: yeswell
mp_en_viaje: all words are human sized
mp_en_viaje: for some human sizes
asciilifeform never did hungarian yet, but suspects it is pronounced jp-style, i.e. that megalith turns into what white man would think of as words.
mp_en_viaje: as hanbot_abroad aptly put it, "these people belong with a snaggletooth and a viking helmet, holding an axe, wtf are they doing pretending to like, euro dress and shit, it's the joke of all time"
mp_en_viaje: i truly can't imagine why fantasy writers keep "inventing" derpy orc langs and shit. could very well just use hungarian.
asciilifeform: ^
asciilifeform cannot help but respect some the hungarians, they fought like berserkers even after berlin fell

asciilifeform grabs that pcap
diana_coman: asciilifeform: see at the bottom some speed tests re current ossabot location too
asciilifeform still reading...
diana_coman: re pcap honestly, that's not much of an attack as far as I can tell but anyways.
asciilifeform: diana_coman: verily
asciilifeform: i was curious of-what it was made tho.
diana_coman: sure + at any rate, it belongs published, why not; ftr gathering all links and everything after this time ate up quite a few hours, ugh.
diana_coman eyes the pile of isp-talks-emails that will take even longer to write-up
asciilifeform: diana_coman: before you go back to these -- is there a large file i can wget-test with from here , in ossasepia ? i'm curious re whether oceanic pipe is limit, or the speed of the rk ssd
diana_coman: asciilifeform: larger than the 86MB I used for testing?
asciilifeform: is this 1 publicly httpized on ossasepia.com ?
diana_coman: asciilifeform: yep; it's http://www.ossasepia.com/available_resources/bac_data_2004-2010_summer.zip
asciilifeform: danke schon diana_coman
asciilifeform tests..
diana_coman: yw
asciilifeform: 2.90 MB/s from my desk.
asciilifeform: this appears to be rate-limited by rk ssd.
asciilifeform: i'ma put in 'apu1' w/ primo samsung msata later this wk, for logger, will make it available for similar test.
diana_coman: asciilifeform: hm, I suppose given the sad state of arm-as-testing-ground, I should even re-think whether rk is best home for blog; though honestly for what I need it so far strictly re blog it wasn't any particular trouble otherwise
asciilifeform: diana_coman: didja ever make a note of what sorta throughput same item had at piz ?
diana_coman: asciilifeform: no, I didn't; (and yes, I should have written it down).
asciilifeform: on a good day i got ~2MB/s from dulap. (peak).
BingoBoingo: Commie scum are out on the street in force today.
asciilifeform: i'ma carry out test where iron can be ruled out as limiting reactant, as soon as i get chance.
asciilifeform: diana_coman: currently your box looks like this. it'll be sat down on iron DIN rail w/ additional forced air when i put this in, it is still snailing its way through the mails.
diana_coman: asciilifeform: heh, the cute&lonely rk that could!
asciilifeform: diana_coman: the move will involve ~30 seconds of down time, we will schedule it together prior to any movement.
asciilifeform: diana_coman: that thing is on insulator pedestal, under it is a 3mm steel sliding plinth. the temp in the dc is a comfortable ~20C when i last measured. (surprisingly, very quiet vs latech's, they have civilized freon cooling, entire back lot fulla chiller towers. and, interestingly, coupla thou. litres of genuine pre-ban halon 1301 for fire suppression.)
diana_coman: works; for now I'd say the main focus is on that business plan ; fwiw I would totally pay asciilifeform for the hosting right from the start, can calc what it amounts too once the data is published and plan is made.
ossabot: Logged on 2019-10-18 13:08:52 diana_coman: mp_en_viaje: I am all for hosting it with asciilifeform but tbh I would very much want him to publish an actual business plan on his blog.
asciilifeform: diana_coman: presently occupied with ^ .
mp_en_viaje: trinque, so for all the discussion of the past few days, i still don't have basic answers here. can i send hour-ish small payments via deedbot now ? if not know, do i know starting when ?
mp_en_viaje: in other news i might run the blog with the most linguistically varied spam. 30+ diff langs, i think of those i speak or visited only latin's missing.
mp_en_viaje: i wonder if anyoen gets latin spam.
diana_coman: mp_en_viaje: if the "lorem ipsum dolor..." counts, then yes.
mp_en_viaje: i suppose that should count huh. i got latin also ;/
BingoBoingo hasn't seen Thai language spam in quite a while
