asciilifeform: this was ( and continues, dulap still dead ) a maddeningly sovokesque experience, where we pay vendor for fish 'that's what they don't have at the fish counter' but short of borrowing mp_en_viaje's freighter and laying own fiber i can't presently think of a final solution to it
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: and we'll have to credit subscribers for the lost time. with substantial adjustment.
asciilifeform: i've had industrial pipes cut out for whole biz day on acct of backhoe. but this aint a backhoe, backhoes make some sorta sense. this dun make sense.
mp_en_viaje: Oscar helpfully shared graphs showing particular IP addresses being hit << were these in here and i missed ?
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: ^ can haz these plox ?
mp_en_viaje: wtf is "apparently hostile", what gave the appearance ? was it the coloring ? something else ?
BingoBoingo: mp_en_viaje: I did not post the graphs yet, will post
BingoBoingo: http://pizarroisp.net/wp-content/uploads/2019/10/image1.png and http://pizarroisp.net/wp-content/uploads/2019/10/image2.png
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: in what units is the vertical in the 1st pic ?
BingoBoingo: Sarcasm with respect to the graph's utility may have been a bit too subtle
asciilifeform: 2nd pic dun look like any kinda ddos at all, simply saturated incoming pipe, happens erry single time anyone uploads a coupla GB of db dump or whatnot
asciilifeform: presently i suspect that we would not have even ~noticed~ this nonsense if they hadn't unplugged
BingoBoingo: I have no idea what te vertical represents
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: didja send that reply or still waiting for sumthing ?
asciilifeform has to go eat soon
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: I fired it off
asciilifeform: aite
asciilifeform: ftr this is longest dulap outage since dulap-I was blackbagged.
asciilifeform goes to eat, bbl.
mp_en_viaje: so basically, 20mbps sustained over... looks like 10 minutes or so = too much ?
mp_en_viaje: BingoBoingo, if you're gonna send as is anyway, why the fyuck am i reading it
mp_en_viaje: the reason i asked about the graphs was because, eg, "Oscar helpfully shared graphs showing particular IP addresses being hit with substantial, apparently hostile incoming traffic with targeted at a few IPs in the IP range." is entirely false.
mp_en_viaje: not helpful, not showing, not subsyantial, not apparently or otherwise hostile.
mp_en_viaje: "I would like to know what options are available going forward" is about 500 words too many for the simple concept of
mp_en_viaje: "either you get your shit together or i move on, pick exactly one."
mp_en_viaje: 3. What carriers run fiber to the datacenter? I would like to know what all the connectivity options available are. << dawg ffs, i showed you them.
BingoBoingo: mp_en_viaje: Thank you. I am wondering if there's any questions I missed short of going straight to http://logs.ossasepia.com/log/trilema/2019-10-04#1940463
ossabot: Logged on 2019-10-04 21:34:03 mp_en_viaje: "either you get your shit together or i move on, pick exactly one."
mp_en_viaje: nevermind questions. 1. i am stuck with customers correctly pointing out that my uptime this month will ~maybe~ reach two nines. it'll be a wonder if this outage doesn't put me entirely out of business. 2. do you have any actual substantial anything to point to, because brandishing about "hostile" and "attack" and etcetera empty wordage isn't doing anything for me. in particular 20mbps for a few minutes doesn't even register
mp_en_viaje: on any kind of radar, i feel like an idiot showing people a trival example of a saturated pipe and pretending like they should be impressed.
mp_en_viaje: so far the situation here is that you stumbled on the cable and took half a day to plug it back in. got anything that can actually move us past this ?
mp_en_viaje: problem is that after you sent the previous yokel text, there's nothing that you can say to deyokel self.
mp_en_viaje: kinda the wisdom of not doing that.
BingoBoingo: Thank you. I guess I'm going to have to do the only things I can right now. 1. eat some food 2. Take a walk, etc and try to have burned more calories in activity today than stress 3. Go to sleep sober
mp_en_viaje: sounds like a plan.
mp_en_viaje: it's not like ~you~ did it , you know. take it easy.
mp_en_viaje personally has no intention of pulling the plug over diana_coman 's inability to do smg work today because of this for instance ;

mp_en_viaje: i do not believe it is possible the dc in question has any kind of alternative, on the simple basis of their asn being shown to peer with nobody other than antel, which is specifically uruguay's state monopoly on data transport.
mp_en_viaje: this is a judgment much akin to, "look, in your locale enel spa is the energy provider, monopoly by law, you're buying energy from them" "i'd have to look for my contract" "no, actually, you don't have to. i can tell you from ten thousand miles away, on this basis"
mp_en_viaje: anyway, to get back to it : what 2 years has (perhaps) done is given us some real world data, such that we can compare the list of criteria we originally abstractly derived from our own imaginations and best intentions, with the story of how well they worked out in practice.
mp_en_viaje: if indeed the observations are that 1. "non-nato" is meaningless, contemporary fucktard mindset is socialism anyways everywhere ; AND 2. the true problem for republican isp is actually clean bw, which "datacenters" fail to provide,

mp_en_viaje: tarkovsky understands ~nothing, and then shoots static scenes for hours.
mp_en_viaje: "oh, you'll understand by yourself" "of course i will, bitch. and i do not need you for this, or even permit you to live after"
mp_en_viaje: diana_coman, are you talking of post kill-bill tarantino ? because in that we agree, i banned him.
diana_coman: mp_en_viaje: yeah
diana_coman: that's what I saw and so -> wtf
mp_en_viaje: a, no. tarantino in my mouth strictly means pre kill bill.
diana_coman: I'll have to watch some of that then.
diana_coman: but you see, there is precisely that, basically what you call post kill-bill tarantino -> tarkovsky and it's dubious that such thing happens if really "totally the opposite"
mp_en_viaje: no, see on my credit pulp fiction, true romance, both jackie brown and foxy brown (in this order)
mp_en_viaje: then present the bill.
mp_en_viaje: diana_coman, to me it seems ~guaranteed~ to happen if truly "exactly opposite"
mp_en_viaje: but yes, post kill bill tarantino === tarkovsky.
diana_coman: really? next you'll become a woman because exactly opposite or what?
mp_en_viaje: "he had it, he lost it, he never got it back". attempts to "intelectual" himself by the breeches, doesn't lift.
mp_en_viaje: diana_coman, how is a woman exactly oppposite ?!
diana_coman: hm; will have to watch to see.
mp_en_viaje: i have a lot more in common wit ha woman than with most other things.
diana_coman: uhm, opposite is same thing, different sign, no?
diana_coman: not "nothing in common with"
mp_en_viaje: well, are you proposing that "owning three ducks" and "having borrowed three ducks that you have to repay" have "three ducks" in common ?!
diana_coman: I don't see it; owning is the opposite of not owning; in as much as borrowing is not owning, there's the opposite; ducks don't enter into it
mp_en_viaje: i use the set-theory basis for "opposite", yes. two subsets of a set are opposite if they have no shared elements. i'm not entirely sure how to construct an algebraic notion of "opposite" that's not immediate nonsense.
diana_coman: mp_en_viaje: ah, I see; I can work with the set-theory, just not the one I directly reach for when "opposite"
diana_coman: because to me no shared elements means simply distinct, not opposite
mp_en_viaje: but saying -3 and +3 "have 3 in common" directly leads to nonsense.
diana_coman: mp_en_viaje: they have the axis in common, not the value
mp_en_viaje: but the axis they do not have.
diana_coman: ie they represent the same sort of thing
mp_en_viaje: axis pre-exists them, not theirs.
diana_coman: -3 on an axis is the opposite of +3 on the same axis
diana_coman: not of any +3
mp_en_viaje: same thing as in, "they're both numbers" ?
diana_coman: no; they are both measures of x coordinate
diana_coman: or of y or of z or of *something* that is same though
mp_en_viaje: i see the difference now.
mp_en_viaje: your notion is exactly my notion, "subset of same set" translates as "they're the same thing" as in, "measures of x coord". then you emphasize giving the symmetry point, where i couldn't care less. and BECAUSE your notion of opposite requires a given symmetry point, then therefore your notion of "what the set may be" is limited thereby, so it'll be things like "measures of coordinates" or such narrow things. whereas my set i
mp_en_viaje: s always "the universe"
mp_en_viaje: as far as i'm concerned, any two subsets of the universe that have no shared points are in principle opposite, and the symmetry point is to be established through conversation if interesting.
mp_en_viaje: though in general conversation rather circles the shared points problem, because obviously two subsets of the universe will have ~some~ shared points in ~some~ view. but then the invalidation of the view becomes the point, constructing discourse. because obviously man must pick some views.
diana_coman: I can see it; there's no limitation due to axes, it's n-dimensional space so infinity of axes
diana_coman: but you are right in that indeed, any distinct sets are effectively opposite with the symmetry point somewhere in between
mp_en_viaje: or at least could be, or could come to be, or be said to be or etcetera. very greek-like approach to the problem.
diana_coman: I suppose my limitation/narrower viewpoint might come at times from not really granting everything the infinite set of axes, yes; on looking at it, there's no reason to limit it upfront like this, no.
mp_en_viaje: well, probably expedient most of the time
diana_coman: certainly.

BingoBoingo has been trying to think of ways to generate value in Uruguay outside of ISP'ing. Beyond getting land and some champion merino or Angus genetics... Mebbe marching locals nude through various plazas for the cameras on the road to producing art has potential.

BingoBoingo: Uruguay isn't without its charms, and it may be time to let another lord the opportunity to claw their way out of the zone. I woke up today with the oddly relaxing freedom that comes from not knowing what the immediate future holds, even if last night I put a good number of kilometers on the odometer in the drizzle loosening the big ball of stress I'd been trapped in.
mp_en_viaje: this is true
mp_en_viaje: there's certainly worse fates than living in uy
BingoBoingo: If another lord wants to step up and try Vienna, Portugal, Minks, etc... I don't know that "Señor (Herr?) Rogier hopped on a plane to a strange land before" should necessarily block someone else from the opportunity.

BingoBoingo: Trinque's recent post had me reevaluating the dietary situation and adjusting. I'd been taking it for granted Milk is rich in Vitamin D, etc only to discover... The locals throw some folic acid in flour y Ya! After making some dietary adjustments the last few weeks of winter were less "blah" burdened than te preceeding.
BingoBoingo: Of course there's also the chance something works out to extend Pizarro's life in Uruguay, but I'm going to look for some Qntra fodder, maybe put together a blog post, and see what Sunday and then later Monday hold.
