billymg: << this sounds like it would be very useful imo
snsabot: Logged on 2020-05-26 09:07:13 thimbronion: billymg: I also see some potential tie-in with the work you're doing on mp-wp. Unified search of all known mp-wp blogs would be handy, I think.
thimbronion: billymg: cool.
thimbronion: lolz. And is under attack from some russian ip now.
feedbot: << The Montevideo Standard -- Civil Unrest In Minnesota After Cops Choke Life Out Of Black Man
asciilifeform: thimbronion: i've been seeing record-breaking qty of http liquishit on own boxen recently. appears to be side effect of mp's 'buy www traffic' thing (i expect erryone he linked to at whatever point, is getting 'stress test' )
thimbronion: asciilifeform: I don't believe I'm linked directly by him, but definitely in the second level.
thimbronion: Oh wait - the pingbacks.
asciilifeform: thimbronion: most likely, via my logger ( he had some links to it, apparently still )
asciilifeform: ftr i dun give a damn, my logger is on a 32cpu box w/ ssd raid
thimbronion: BingoBoingo: how do the cops have time to kill a black dude when they're so busy keeping kids off playgrounds?
asciilifeform: lol perhaps he made unauthorized use of a playground
thimbronion: asciilifeform: actually you're right, there are more junkies on playgrounds than kids these days.
BingoBoingo: thimbronion: Dude apparently was chilling in his car
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: what was the police version? ('this here's a good ol' lynchin' town' ? )
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Police version is they fired all four cops that were on the scene "Please don't burn shit down now"
BingoBoingo: Claim is some black dude went to a local shop with fake papers. This one was the nearest black dude the cops found
asciilifeform: wat's 'fake papers' ? counterfeit benjie ?
BingoBoingo: Unclear
BingoBoingo: Meanwhile across the river: "El ministro de Seguridad de la provincia de Buenos Aires, Sergio Berni, aseguró que la pandemia de coronavirus es peor que una explosión nuclear para contestar las críticas contra el aislamiento del barrio de emergencia Villa Azul, en Quilmes, dispuesta en los últimos días por un brote de la enfermedad que tiene en vilo al mundo."
thimbronion: CR is being even more retarded in some respects than California wrt "coronavirus."
asciilifeform: fwiw here in washingtonistan, is largely joke (e.g. no official interference w/ folx in parks, or on streets, or other outdoors)
asciilifeform: there's an edict that folx going into shops must appear with muzzles, but that's about it
BingoBoingo: The edicts here are all suggestions with the exception on "no public spectacles (futbol)" and "Schools reopen in June"
thimbronion: BingoBoingo: sounds relatively sane.
BingoBoingo: But the Uruguayos have enthusiastically embraced the suggestions, but the streets are starting to get more normal levels of foot traffic.
BingoBoingo: thimbronion: A recurring theme on the stream is "I live in a freer country than you" and "My President is better than your President"
BingoBoingo: The black folks in the US eat that shit up. So do a lot of expat-curious.
thimbronion: In CR there are a recorded total of only *930* *cases*. For this they shut down turism which they claim is only 8% of their economy - but that's bullshit.
thimbronion: BingoBoingo: you're the one making the claims?
BingoBoingo: thimbronion: I am
thimbronion: hahah.
BingoBoingo: About to run for groceries and return to try re-hammering yet again a blog on my impressions of the livestreaming thing
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: who counts as 'case' over there ?
thimbronion: cool will read.
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Tests positive. 22 deaths, but they do disclose age and pre-existing comorbidites on the dead here. All 22 of them
BingoBoingo: About half cancer patients.
BingoBoingo: Most incredibly aged
asciilifeform: near as i can tell, here in northameristan, most folx already had 'the plague', but hardly anyone bothered with the official test
BingoBoingo: Well, problem of being remote is the "contact tracing" seems to have actually sorta halfway contained it. ~139 active almost 700 recovered per official stats.
BingoBoingo: They run about 1000 tests a day finding 3-6 new cases
asciilifeform: the usa situation is lulzy imho. coupla mil folx got a parole from commute, and unsurprisingly aint eager to see the party end
BingoBoingo: Most locals I talk about it with IRL seem to feel like we got conned by US vs. China psyop war. The local appearing redditards meanwhile derp online about srs
asciilifeform: folx doing their best to at least pretend to serious
BingoBoingo: Here El Presidente has kept relief to "seguro de Paro parcial" and food baskets. Folx want to get back to work. Even more they want folks buying their dumpster finds
BingoBoingo: Folks renting in the malls are incredibly pissed the malls are still closed
BingoBoingo: Malls not closed by decree, but by mall owners meeting up and derping
asciilifeform: at some pt the victims won't have what for the rentiers to extort, neh
asciilifeform: 'blood from stone'
BingoBoingo: I suspect the Frente Amplio might actually lose the Intendencia when local elections happen in October
BingoBoingo: They've had it for 30 years but... their stooges want virus panic to continue forever and... Their voters don't like low foot traffic cramping their "small businesses"
asciilifeform: lotsa folx having a pretty good time in the 'panic'
BingoBoingo: Goverment here has been pretty clear that they are going to try to keep the economy going as much as they can. "Stay home, you won't starve, but life goes on without you"
asciilifeform: from office plankton (reprieved from commute and costume play) to schoolchildren (who for 1st time in century+ , let outta their prison)
thimbronion: My daughter + friends have been having a blast.
asciilifeform: thimbronion: over here, parks etc are fulla families w/ children, playing outside, at all hours of day
asciilifeform: (something asciilifeform never saw in usa on any kinda scale prior )
BingoBoingo: Similar here. Rambla foot traffic is ~normal for fall which means beach to myself.
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: iirc yer orcs were inexplicably beach-phobic even in peacetime
asciilifeform: i dun think i've ever seen an emptier beech @ 85F than in BingoBoingostan
asciilifeform: *beach
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Right. It's a very seasonal thing for them.
BingoBoingo: And even then many prefer to dream of the beaches in other places than go to their own damn beached
asciilifeform: what, i wonder , is their test for 'beach season' ? 'water in steel cup must boil within half hr' ?
asciilifeform if lived in BingoBoingostan, would prolly sit 6mo/yr on beach..
thimbronion: I took a chinese girl to the river here the other day. It was a novel experience for her. She dipped her finger into the visibly green water and tasted it to see if it was "sweet."
BingoBoingo: New Year to the start of Carnaval is their peak
asciilifeform: thimbronion: lol! wat makes for 'sweet' sludge ? % bat guano ?
BingoBoingo brb
thimbronion: I dunno. I have yet to figure out the pathology there.
