lobbes: fwiw, as I understood it the plan was trinque would be managing spyked and myself on the livecd/usb work, starting in Dec
ericbot: Logged on 2019-11-13 01:54:04 trinque: k, so this is little else than creating a signed tarball of the cuntoo bootstrapper's output, and building a livecd/usb that can unpack that item onto a fresh system, bundled with some driver firmware and a try-all-modules kernel.

lobbes: anyways, why not have dorion come in as the day-to-day manager, with trinque in a more advisory/consultant role? I thought this was more or less the original plan to begin with tbh

ossabot: Logged on 2019-11-25 21:24:34 trinque: best of luck to dorion_road then. last I heard neither spyked nor lobbes were free until december, and no, I'm not able to maintain the pace of engagement this appears to require.
spyked goes to read bvt's fresh article on this
bvt: spyked: ftr, this is just a brain dump, i'm trying to evolve my own understanding of the problem
mircea_popescu: trinque, not the end of the world, we see how it goes.
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo, that sounds pretty great, actually. what's wrong with asia after all, they have tiny weird looking chicks but i guess one can always rubberband a coupla together and fuck in between the bellies. vaseline conquers all!

mircea_popescu: conversation, at least among well spoken & intelligent people and in the context of organizing work, very well resembles well written programs for well built machines for the exactly obvious reason : that's what the machine aims to be, a well spoken intelligent person.

mircea_popescu: ore over two decades and nobody was ever gonna make a 3 again.
mircea_popescu: whereas for the generation ingoing with the sept that never ended, their exactly just as deeply rooted precisely equal fear of its own inconsequence and inadequacy manifested as version number inflation, with which printing press to pay off on the hopes&dreams of a team of retards. simple monetization of the sacred cows of the previous generation, really, which is how neoprotestantism ever works.
mircea_popescu: "your two hours worth of nothing in particular still make you just as good as say that cuck derp dad's age -- think, he never made a major version revision, but you did! you're so cool...!!!"
ossabot: Logged on 2019-09-09 05:40:35 mircea_popescu: all sorta chuck moores, "famous" and apparently ever so good and useful, just WAITING for you to give them a chance to strangle you.
mircea_popescu: which puts the whole "power ranger" idiocy in context : "we'll pay you in feelers!"
mircea_popescu: (among teh great advantages of ye log import : sql search for "power" "rangers" now yields 94 rows in set, all of the Forum logs for X format. yippee! i kinda do vaguely regret however not bothering to immortalize the original gushing fan on tardstalk, "oh, you guys are like power rangers!!!" in excited response to the perceived great acumen displayed by hearn fucking up bitcoin while everyone else was watching manga)
mircea_popescu: but anyways, a lot of this "it's just numbers" attitude since the innumerate have been "no kid left behind"'d into everyone's processes. then once cats finally join the fray as fully franchised theirdemocracy voters &c, it'll be "whatever, it's just calendars" and so on.
spyked: mircea_popescu, that inflation isn't limited just to version numbers tho. those numbers are just the tip of the iceberg hiding underneath a whole lot of stupid changes. e.g. gcc 4.7 to 4.9 had quite a few changes (among others) to default flags, admittedly. but 4.9 to 6, ffs that broke compilation for a lot of projects.
mircea_popescu: of course not, indeed so!
BingoBoingo: diana_coman: Logistics between GMT-3 and apparent GMT+8 are still being arranged
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: Asia just seems a lot more alien than anywhere else.
mircea_popescu: it does.
mircea_popescu: bvt, in moderation
BingoBoingo: I suppose Asian proficiency in English can't be any worse than Uruguay's alleged "Best in Latin America, though no one knows what the letters sound like" English

dorion_road: http://logs.ossasepia.com/log/trilema/2019-11-25#1953471 << yeah, to start. let's see how productive 10 hours a week can be made and re-evaluate after we gather feedback.
ossabot: Logged on 2019-11-25 16:03:55 jfw: To update on http://logs.ossasepia.com/log/trilema/2019-11-12#1950766 , I would be more comfortable with 10 hours a week, at least if it's an "intangibles and goodwill" sort of deal. dorion_road was in accord if I recall. And as discussed with spyked, the limited time could provide a good pressure to keep it productive.
dorion_road: http://logs.ossasepia.com/log/trilema/2019-11-25#1953494 << thank you, that I can understand and take responsibility for.

ossabot: Logged on 2019-11-25 18:02:15 jfw: mircea_popescu: a Linux distro, yes, though my understanding was that what we built there was too narrow in hardware and application support to be of more general interest

dorion_road: diana_coman I agree.
dorion_road: http://logs.ossasepia.com/log/trilema/2019-11-25#1953543 << Thank you for the luck wishes. What pace of engagement do you see yourself able to maintain over say, a 30-60 day stretch ?

dorion_road: I will make it clear here that I judge trinque's technical knowledge and experience to be much greater than my own, from both programming and sys admin perspective.
dorion_road: For fundamental strategy decisions such as the static linking knot, I'm really going to have to lean heavily on the technical expertise here.
ossabot: Logged on 2019-11-13 18:16:19 bvt: re tmsr os - i am curious what work plan trinque will come up with, esp wrt static linking.

mircea_popescu: that's how it's supposed to work, anyway.
mircea_popescu: a project's in some trouble when management's technically above the actual engineers for chrissakes. and yes, the whole point of even having a republic is fine high escalation, so as to be able to deal well with insanely difficult rare problems.

The mp-wp bot needs to be completed/delivered this week (which I will have some extra time to do so due to upcoming US holidays). Once I get that and the auctionbot work estimation complete, I will propose a deadline for my ebuild 101 homework.

lobbes: and with that, I'm going back to the workbench for said mp-wp bot.
BingoBoingo: In new developments, next week will be meeting with someone from a datacenter firm that keeps POPs all all over South America when he hits Montevideo.
BingoBoingo: Lead from expanding the search to non-Equinix, non-NTT chains
mircea_popescu: lobbes, if you refrain you'll never know what's wrong with them eh
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo, sweet!
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: I'm trying to get that number up to 500. Sticking with the small got a lot of the same dumb silence I met in 2017.
mircea_popescu: aha
BingoBoingo: Asia's delivered some fast, but dumb. I am beginning to suspect folks with heads in the DC space may have moved to doing the POP in a bunch of other people's buildings thing Pizarro was intended to grow into.
mircea_popescu: myeah.
BingoBoingo: Actually owning, provisioning the Datacenter more of a Burlington sorta industry.
BingoBoingo: Anyways, they aren't paricularly looking to get more hands in Uruguay, but they are interested enough to have a get to know you sit down. I'm emphasizing my readiness to locate while moderating my expectations.
bvt: mircea_popescu: published & answered
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo, sounds like a plan. also don't get oneitis.
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: Right. The sweep continues.
BingoBoingo: In unlikely local headlines seen today, ~10 million USD worth of "contraband" went from Uruguay to Paraguay contrary to everything I understand about smuggling between the Guays.
BingoBoingo: jfw dorion_road: Do you know anything about an operation calling itself Panamaservers.com? Of particular interest, is Panama a small enough place you maybe ran into their last Customer service and support manager?
BingoBoingo: Apartment rents in their neighborhood appear to be ~150% to 175% of similarly situated Montevideo rents, and they opened the conversation with a request for my salary expectations. I appreciated they replied, even with an opportunity other than what I approached them about... but I'd like to avoid the situation where I end up in the wrong job *and* underpaid for taking on the extra risk.
BingoBoingo understands that datacenter tech is a sorta trade while customer service manager is in many cases is a sort of fall guy.
BingoBoingo: To put the contrast differently. As a trade, datacenter tech is portable. A datacenter tech does his work and follows opportunities like an oilfield roughneck. A customer service manager enters a carrera in the Latino sense of it being a race. It's a race to either move up in the organization of move from organization to organization while staying in front of rot that accumulates in other aspects of the business.
