Pizarro



asciilifeform: mp_en_viaje: i specifically did not want it in piz, cuz already had dark thought re target-rich envir.
asciilifeform: '3 smoking from same match'
mp_en_viaje: aha
asciilifeform: will switch it tomorrow .
asciilifeform wonders what is his remaining use on battlefield. e.g. snsa is approx as alive as piz...
asciilifeform: nao i haven't even a logger .
asciilifeform: to others, goes the torch of logotron .
asciilifeform: diana_coman and lobbes .
asciilifeform: fallen is phuctor. (it was gonna get fatter disks, in resupply crate, so can actually go through those ssl dumps , to date has been doing 'random sample' of'em erry wk )
asciilifeform: i'ma carry on w/ peh (needs keccak) , perhaps mp_en_viaje & co will still find use for it .
mp_en_viaje: well, we can talk about nsa later this week, ima have to write report anyways. one thing at a time neh ?
asciilifeform: aite.
asciilifeform will complete 'peh' even when exiled to pluto, imho it needs doin'
asciilifeform: i dun expect it will make riches tho.
mp_en_viaje: piling everything together, "my car got a flat tire, and come to think of it my wife is annoying also" is a great way to find suicide appealing and naught much else. not exactly rational review.
asciilifeform: tru
asciilifeform also dealing with a possibly-imploding salt mine, for extra kicks
mp_en_viaje: things should be reviewed on merits, and periodically, but on merits and periodically, not whenever got a paper cut.
mp_en_viaje: asciilifeform, from experience, all possibly imploding salt mines are in fact imploding. Mocky_ 's experience is iirc in the logs as current-most-recent.
asciilifeform: mp_en_viaje: i can't say i've much to claim as 'merits' in recent time.
mp_en_viaje: isn't that a sobering thought.
asciilifeform: if were japanese prolly already would have appointed kaishakunin and bought white sheets etc.
mp_en_viaje: white sheets are always good to have in any case.
asciilifeform: put full throttle since late may into piz & logger. nao have neither.
mp_en_viaje: well, actually, your logger is widely distributed and you have it, except for not atm on a box.
asciilifeform: ( e.g. 'm' also was for piz. came to 0. )
lobbes: logger vpatch still exists because asciilifeform tho
lobbes: mp-wp bot couldn't be a thing without it, for example
asciilifeform: lobbes: nao time for the young heroes.
mp_en_viaje: i daresay most of the benefit of pizarro was in training you inept tards to some (probably minuscule) degree.
mp_en_viaje: that, you also carry with you.
asciilifeform: mp_en_viaje: before piz lost shirt twice. so far most of what learned is 'electrified fence around zone, hurts' )
mp_en_viaje: "not talking to many people you don't know ~= suicide" might've been more productive a lesson.
mp_en_viaje: but ultimately, the reason experience's so painfully expensive, is that nobody takes so much from it ever.
mp_en_viaje: pizarro had a decent run in spite of management ; that it came to an end... it ran for 20+ months neh. plenty of time.
asciilifeform: http://logs.ericbenevides.com/log/trilema/2019-10-08#1941985 << fwiw i've never worked anywhere that didn't eventually die. even that usg army lab -- closes.
ericbot: Logged on 2019-10-08 00:11:07 mp_en_viaje: asciilifeform, from experience, all possibly imploding salt mines are in fact imploding. Mocky_ 's experience is iirc in the logs as current-most-recent.
asciilifeform: *closed
mp_en_viaje: right.
asciilifeform: last go around, asciilifeform was stuck in 'butugychag' (physically commuted-to hellhole) for 6+mo.
asciilifeform: ~0 useful output.
asciilifeform: was also when lost good % of net worth in the alphago thing.
mp_en_viaje: which was this ?
asciilifeform: was in the last days of bitbet.
mp_en_viaje: oh oh, google go bot
asciilifeform: aha
mp_en_viaje: lol, remember the 1k btc berkshire bet ?
asciilifeform actually followed the last convulsions of bbet, and the end of era1, on hidden terminal in a snakepit fulla unspeakable usg stooges
asciilifeform: mp_en_viaje: of course remember
mp_en_viaje: good times.
asciilifeform: all times eventually remembered as 'good times', is how the meat worx
asciilifeform: 'we were younger then'(tm)(r)
mp_en_viaje: in my case it's more a case of "oh, remember when the old shcmucks srsly thought they stand a chance ?"
asciilifeform: !o seen Mocky
ossabot: Mocky last seen here on 2019-09-04 22:48:05: I fell down a rabbit hole
mp_en_viaje: but anyways, having now read this 771 line / 19k words log twice, ima to bed.
asciilifeform: !o seen-anywhere Mocky
ossabot: Mocky last seen in #trilema on 2019-09-04 22:48:05: I fell down a rabbit hole
mp_en_viaje: take it easy all.
asciilifeform: goodnight mp_en_viaje
lobbes: http://logs.ericbenevides.com/log/trilema/2019-10-07#1941645 << at my current rate of developing the thing, I will give a tentative estimate of Jan 1st 2020 as delivery date of whole enchilada. I will update this deadline quickly if I see it threatening to be pushed
ericbot: Logged on 2019-10-07 21:34:35 mp_en_viaje: http://logs.ossasepia.com/log/trilema/2019-10-07#1941357 << i meant the whole thing, when you're ready to make delivery and i hafta have a server ready for you to do this on.
ossabot: Logged on 2019-10-07 13:06:49 lobbes: http://logs.ericbenevides.com/log/trilema/2019-10-07#1941226 << The 'first chunk' which spits lines into the mpwp db should be complete by the end of this month (as in patched and ready to go). That's a conservative estimate as well; hopefully sooner.
ericbot: Logged on 2019-10-07 06:37:31 mp_en_viaje: lobbes, when is it you'll need a server to sit down orchestra on ?
asciilifeform: lobbes: i expect there'll be a where-to-park then.
lobbes: seems like folks are aiming towards diana_coman's contact huh
asciilifeform: lobbes: afaik the only promising parking atm.
asciilifeform: remains to be seen how will behave on battlefield, but so far could be worse
asciilifeform: d00d seems willing to colo, gave price.
asciilifeform: ( iirc diana_coman took a leased stock machine rather than colo )
lobbes: willing to gpg and accept btc too, it seems
asciilifeform: looxlike
asciilifeform: this in itself is rare.
lobbes: I may look into getting another box from them myself; gonna need another home for blog / auctionbot and would rather not hang everything on my usg hoster
asciilifeform: not 1 of the fucktards i abortively talked to in '17 was willing to eat btc.
asciilifeform might be unusual, but often prefers to pay in orc scrip because sitting on a vehehehery modest and rapidly dwindling pile of btc
lobbes: that was why I went with orc scrip with my current hoster. I also have small pile
lobbes: even worse, I dun even have a working trb node
asciilifeform: lobbes: i had enuff for maybe 1 moar refuel of piz and then fat zero.
asciilifeform: piz was also my last working means for buying coin .
lobbes: same, I'm glad I bought little bits when it was alive at least. I'll miss those auctions
asciilifeform: ~100% of the coin asciilifeform ever had, in fact came from the people here.
lobbes: I bought my first coin for ~$20 back in 2013 or abouts, then hung onto it for dear life. Almost lost it in a tardstalk scam, but luckily read hanbot's ancient writings; found this place in time
asciilifeform: lobbes: i mined (yes) 1st, on the pile of junkyard fpga i happened to have surrounded self with at the time .
asciilifeform: did not want to deal with the 'btc komoyooniti', found it repulsive.
asciilifeform: eventually bought a little from 'gox' right before it chernobyled.
asciilifeform: then only had from friends, all of whom incidentally still here .
asciilifeform: also at one point sold a mythical kingdom to some unknown fella for a little.
asciilifeform: that's pretty much it.
lobbes: lolwut duckdom
asciilifeform: !o s urbit
ossabot: 121 results for "urbit" in #trilema
asciilifeform: lobbes: nao-forgotten d00d wrote a sort of early premined shitcoin, 'urbit', and asciilifeform won one as a prize in a contest he had. is what this was.
asciilifeform: point being, in asciilifeform's eyes only makes sense to spend personal coinz if can buy it back ~immediately at same or better price. which is difficult to do.
asciilifeform: so normally i see it as 'non-renewable resource', like to sell organs.
asciilifeform: as it is, asciilifeform was building boxen, so managed to not only burn most of coin stash on it, but fiatola saving also.
asciilifeform: ( asciilifeform cannot safely receive fiatola from humans. so that's where got with what to build. )
lobbes: ah okay, so you arbitraged a shitcoin in a sense
asciilifeform: it will be a while before asciilifeform can again participate in building anything that material costs more than electrons .
asciilifeform: or to go overseas etc.
asciilifeform: had reserved for resupply crate and its contents, tho.
asciilifeform: lobbes, diana_coman : logotron tree updated, removed 'shlex' , tested with bare hands on local staging box ( baitbot ! ) , can be used .
asciilifeform: lobbes: i was sadly unable to mirror your patches, as they lived in piz. when you find new home for your www, i will mirror. (otherwise feel free to paste as comments, and i'ma try and parse'em out)
asciilifeform: sigs, that is
asciilifeform: iirc lobbes had sigs for existing patches.
asciilifeform: bot is unaffected by this patch, diana_coman & lobbes can emplace w/out reset .
lobbes: asciilifeform: ack re: sigs. I'll let you know once I have new blog home. Going to order a leased stock box from that moldavian hoster nao methinks
lobbes: and neato re: patch. I still need to apply the detect_disconnect patch as well. Will do that tonight before bed
asciilifeform: lobbes: i expect if we all park in same cage , will end in same tears .
asciilifeform: i suspect is is a fundamentally bad idea .
asciilifeform: that being said, i dun exactly have a list of 9000 cages that known to work.
asciilifeform: lobbes, diana_coman , can take the piz banners off yer log www's, they dun go anywhere no moar...
lobbes: asciilifeform: this is a point re: parking in same cage. Perhaps couldn't hurt to do some more charting.
asciilifeform will miss the golden time of when could put a box in a locking cage where only l1 human , rather than dirty paws of heathens, will lay on it
asciilifeform: lobbes: if you colo boxen, i rec to take a weekend to learn to use a spot welder
asciilifeform: they're inexpensive .
asciilifeform: naturally a welded tin can aint a 100 tonne safe . but will be equally impossible to get inside w/out leaving obv. marks.
asciilifeform: if yer good about photographing before sending off.
asciilifeform off to pet pets. bbl.
lobbes: enjoy!

BingoBoingo: Oscar did send some new graphs. One seems to show a lot of traffic hitting Latecho near, but not inside out block. https://ibb.co/MBCdf6X https://ibb.co/4NdZGcV https://ibb.co/0K2Z4TK https://ibb.co/zQHs76v
BingoBoingo: mod6: To take any backups of your machine, I will need some sort of credentials to log in.
BingoBoingo: http://logs.ossasepia.com/log/trilema/2019-10-07#1941999 << I feel this sting.
ossabot: Logged on 2019-10-07 21:15:20 mp_en_viaje: "not talking to many people you don't know ~= suicide" might've been more productive a lesson.
lobbes: BingoBoingo: fwiw, I think you did better at this venture than I imagine I ever would have. It took balls to take that initial leap over the wire and bootstrap the thing.
lobbes: tmsr is all about embracing one's failure and learning from it, if I've learned anything from being here
lobbes: it is easy to look at, say MP, and go "well I'll never even be close to doing the things he does", but to me BingoBoingo's story is uniquely inspirational in that folx like myself can go "well, he made the jump into uncharted waters. He built *something* even if the resistance of the medium won in the end. Why couldn't I also build something?"
lobbes: Not sure what I'm trying to say exactly, other than perhaps "there's many ways to make a mark in history". Idk, I'ma shut up as my inspirational speeches seem to have a history of turning people off rather than inspiring
BingoBoingo: lobbes: Leaping over the wire was the easy part. Letting ritual complexity explode early by not objecting to the GPG note passing thing was a failure. The big failure was marketing, not having a private message churner or selling anyone on the idea of getting one together for Pizarro and fast. The thing about failures is that over time their consequences accrete. Over time these accretions build up and generate inertia. It is like a
BingoBoingo: weight.
lobbes: this is true about the accretions of failure. A lesson for all of us, I reckon. Makes me take a hard look at my own failures I may be missing
lobbes: on the bright side, tho, now you have real world experience for someone else that starts an endeavor of the sort. It is expensive to get that experience, and you own it in a way no one else does
BingoBoingo: To put together a Qntra I might read five to ten takes from raw sources before I can collapse the story into condensed, journalistic text.
BingoBoingo: To put together another Pizarro from nothing, Even with the past two years there are other hard edges I have not mastered that I know would be necessary, and the tissue paper pipe problem can happen again.
BingoBoingo: I don't in this moment feel as portable as I did in 2017 because now there's the Peruana. I'm rather fond of her, but she loves me.
BingoBoingo: She's been working on getting some English language, but ripping her out of the Spanish language space and bringing her to eastern Europe and Slavic languages to get colocated with me near another datacenter... When the necessity of spreading seems to have been one of the lessons... It seems a bit much.
lobbes: well, as diana_coman once told me *sustainable* growth is the key. From my chair at least, it doesn't seem like taking time to regroup is a necessarily a bad thing
lobbes: but I'm no growth expert!
BingoBoingo: I am inclined to make somewhere in Latin America, even if not Uruguay work. Bingoboingo the journalist loves this country. Bingoboingo the retarded datacenter tech/mongoloid startup manager hates this country.
asciilifeform waves
BingoBoingo waves
lobbes: heya asciilifeform
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: seems that you do not want to be evacuated yourself ? asciilifeform is ready to carry out this duty if BingoBoingo wishes.
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: i will buy personally for you a ticket to anywhere on planet3.
asciilifeform: ( what to do there, is separate q, if i knew i'd buy for self also ! )
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Not looking to evacuate immediately.
asciilifeform: aite.
asciilifeform: but there's orcbux in reserve for this. as was sworn.
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: If you do make it back to the Oriental Republic, however... I am willing to drop everything to make a potroast.
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: i'ma come if it somehow turns out to be impossible to send the irons as freight, but otherwise must pass.
BingoBoingo: That I guessed from the logs.
asciilifeform: fwiw i still have the transportation gear, the sacks, paddings, etc.
asciilifeform: the specific flavour of x86 boxen asciilifeform is partial to, has become a rarity, and imho worth to recover all of it for reuse.
BingoBoingo: Those servers are a treasure.
asciilifeform: http://logs.ericbenevides.com/log/trilema/2019-10-08#1942089 << if neither mod6 nor mp ( the other shareholders ) disagree , i'd like all of the piz irons to be sold for modest cost to the current tenants, who can then use .
ericbot: Logged on 2019-10-08 01:46:08 BingoBoingo: http://btcbase.org/log/2019-10-07#1941897 << S.MG was to buy the two machines through payment of machines in kind
asciilifeform: incl. rk.
asciilifeform: nuffin should be left to the orcs if it can be helped.
lobbes: interesting. I would entertain the idea of buying the rk I am renting (depending on cost of course)
asciilifeform: snsa bought its share of piz for FG crate + 2 boxen ( the very smg boxen in fact ) , perhaps mp will accept these back .
asciilifeform: imho castle mpstein would be a proper home for the remaining FG's, asciilifeform does not know how long has 'until sepsis' .
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: If you want to do a slow growth thing and try to recoup some Bitcoin, I don't see what is keeping you from finishing your second RK plant and finding it a lower cost basis/better value pipe eurocolo.
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: cuz i cannot in good conscience try to peddle a chunk of a colo to which some derp has the keys and i'm 10,000km away.
asciilifeform: ( and can't move self. i'm a pauper and my pauperty's here . )
asciilifeform: how the fuck do i even say pauperty in eng
asciilifeform: y'know, the designated spot where a pauper paups.
asciilifeform: паперть .
BingoBoingo: Back when england was a thing they tried to keep those from accumulating.
asciilifeform: might be false cognate actually.
asciilifeform: паперть is the roofed spot in front of church.
BingoBoingo: The stoop
BingoBoingo: Or on a church the stoople
asciilifeform: that.
asciilifeform: apparently false cognate tho, the eng is from the latin.
BingoBoingo: Of the the places in Uruguay that could draw urban campers... Churchfronts tend not to.
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: slavic / orthodox church thing.
asciilifeform: the churchgoers were expected to put coin into designated paupers.
BingoBoingo: Here they have Catholic, Anglican, Several different kinds of jew, Mormon, the "Christ Scientists" have a giant one...
BingoBoingo: Have yet to encounter a distinctly orthodox presenting church in the city.
asciilifeform: the big ortho cathedral in timis had a proper pauperty. oddly, no paupers tho.
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: fwiw piz was to be also asciilifeform's escape tunnel, but dug not even 1% of it, so is the smallest loss.
asciilifeform: i still think that e.g. lobbes could escape.
lobbes is currently in own state of 'regroup', but does have eye on escape eventually
asciilifeform no longer has anything resembling a realistic picture of escape. perhaps could sign on as swabbie on mp's submarine when he buys 1...

ossabot: Logged on 2019-10-07 20:24:24 mp_en_viaje: diana_coman, come to think about it, see if guy is avail for a conf tomorrow morning say 10 to 11 osterreich time ?
diana_coman is still eating the logs
diana_coman: email sent, will continue reading the logs
diana_coman: !!up maxim_mivo
deedbot: maxim_mivo voiced for 30 minutes.
diana_coman: maxim_mivo: you can !!up with deedbot yourself and then it's permanent rather than in 30min slots
maxim_mivo: Diana, thanks, done.
diana_coman: still waiting for MP atm.
diana_coman: maxim_mivo: do you offer colo in Chisinau only or in Romania too or where?
maxim_mivo: diana_coman: we offer colocation in Chisinau only.
maxim_mivo: Except colocation, all our services are available in Romania, Iasi.
diana_coman: mivocloud.com seems to say moscow & oregon too - is that outdated ?
maxim_mivo: We provide virtual servers also in USA (Oregon, Missouri) and Moscow
diana_coman: maxim_mivo: but do you have infrastructure there ?
maxim_mivo: No
diana_coman: ok; so you have the infrastructure in Chisinau only; correct?
maxim_mivo: We have our infrastructure in Chisinau and Iasi
diana_coman: ah, good.
maxim_mivo: Both DCs are interconnected
diana_coman: maxim_mivo: do they have any separate net pipes? or is it basically the same if I get a server in Iasi or in Chisinau?
diana_coman waves to mp_en_viaje
maxim_mivo: Separate uplinks
diana_coman: not bad
mp_en_viaje: heya!
mp_en_viaje: hi maxim_mivo , thanks for showing up.
maxim_mivo: Hi mp_en_viaje, you're welcome.
mp_en_viaje: so do you have any idea what ~any of this is or notrly ?
maxim_mivo: FIY: i speak romanian, but if other people read this, it's ok to continue in english.
mp_en_viaje: yes, lots of people read it. and good for you, i also speak romanian. and spanish. and well.. a few langs. testament of an active intelligence.
maxim_mivo: mp_en_viaje: so do you have any idea what ~any of this is or notrly ? What do you mean ?
diana_coman would really rather not talk data centre stuff in Latin
mp_en_viaje: maxim_mivo, i mean, you're here. where is "here" ? you're talking to some people. who are they ? that sort of thing.
mp_en_viaje: diana_coman, apparently my questions get ever better in terms of wtf factor as time goes by huh.
diana_coman: mp_en_viaje: kind of how it goes, ~always; there's more actual history accumulated, after all.
mp_en_viaje: true
mp_en_viaje: maxim_mivo, you're not required to ad-hoc research lol, if you say "no" i'll just give you a summary you can fill out later if/when
maxim_mivo: I don't any searches. Just waiting for questions.
maxim_mivo: I have 20 more minutes to stay with you here guys.
mp_en_viaje: alight, let's make it short then.
mp_en_viaje: the top node is the most serene republic, which is a sovereign. like say the country of romania.
mp_en_viaje: this is its forum, the people-who-matter meet here to discuss things-that-matter. like say the parliament of romania.
mp_en_viaje: as it happens the republic ran an isp out of a datacenter in uruguay, which recently imploded. this means we have a bunch of boxes that need a new home, and some people who possibly need a new job.
mp_en_viaje: so the questions to you will come on three lines. 1 as to colocation and related ; 2 as to human resources and related, and 3 as to interoperation with republican systems and practices.
mp_en_viaje: so let's get to them in order : we have specific boxes configurations, including custom-made hardware such as the fg. i understand you can actually colocate these ?
maxim_mivo: What does "fg" mean ?
mp_en_viaje: it's a hardware rng. i'd link you the specsheet / pics etc but atm its site is down
diana_coman: mp_en_viaje: maxim_mivo there's at least the pic lol http://trilema.com/2017/fuckgoats-unboxing-of/
mp_en_viaje: http://trilema.com/2016/fuckgoats-first-batch-assembles-successfully/ << here's some more yeah
maxim_mivo: Should we know what that boxes do ?
mp_en_viaje: nsa, short for No Such lAbs, is the republic's electronic mfg.
mp_en_viaje: maxim_mivo, all sorta thing, there's a mmorpg game server, there's a bunch of complciated math machines (ever heard of phuctor ?), there's blogs, irc loggers,
mp_en_viaje: all sorta shit people do / need / built over time.
diana_coman: maxim_mivo: the fg is a hardware rng and it can be connected to any USB port but for colocated machines it will most likely be inside already ie not an external thing
maxim_mivo: OK, got it, we can colocate them.
mp_en_viaje: now, for the sake of saving time, let's dump questions :
mp_en_viaje: 1. boxes take ~250W peak iirc, and are 1U form. there's prolly gonna be 3-4 to start with. can you host these, how do you need to receive them (fedex to whom/where specifically ?), what sorta pipe can you plug into them and for what costs.
mp_en_viaje: 2. do you want another employee ? he's hardworking and learns fast if not particularly well versed right now ; some kind of apprenticeship is probably on the table.
mp_en_viaje: 3. will you be able to invoice me via deedbot's sytem ? do you understand what the wot is and how it works etc ?
mp_en_viaje: asciilifeform, will you want the boxes shipped over to you first to inspect seals and so on ?
maxim_mivo: 1. We can host them. You'll have to send them to our business address (i'll provide it), declare the customs price and pay the taxes for our customs. The colo price includes 100mbps internet with unlimited bandwidth.
maxim_mivo: 2. We don't hire remote workers. Plus every our employee must speak english, russian and romanian. Basicaly every IT man here in Moldova speaks that languages. I assume your doesn't.
maxim_mivo: 3. What payment method will you use ?
mp_en_viaje: maxim_mivo, wouldn't be remote, he'd move there. speaks english an' spanish.
mp_en_viaje: all payment in bitcoin, it looks like this : http://logs.ossasepia.com/log-search?q=!!pay&chan=trilema
maxim_mivo: Sorry, russian, english and romanian are a must.
mp_en_viaje: alright.
mp_en_viaje: never thought i'd live to see the day speaking romanian's a bar to anything o.O
maxim_mivo: Our romanian and moldovan customers don't speak in english with us.
mp_en_viaje: well yes, but conceivably being an internet business you might benefit from wider language cover.
mp_en_viaje: i dunno, your castle, run it as you please.
diana_coman: maxim_mivo: deedbot does more than just voice in chan; specifically here, it provides a wallet service for people in the wot; ie you can deposit/withdraw bitcoin from/to any address you want + you can invoice & pay invoices between wallets directly for any amount.
diana_coman: ofc the help page is on trinque.org that seems also down, ugh.
mp_en_viaje: was trinque in uy too ?!
mp_en_viaje: i recall him not wanting to eggbasket
diana_coman: I thought he wasn't but atm I can't access trinque.org nor http://deedbot.org/help.html
mp_en_viaje: http://wot.deedbot.org/ << no, it's up
diana_coman: that one yes; the help though not.
diana_coman: or not from here at least
mp_en_viaje: http://deedbot.org/help.html
mp_en_viaje: i see it.
diana_coman: so then it's only me, ok.
mp_en_viaje: http://archive.is/1ydLc << fresh copy anyways
maxim_mivo: Sorry, guys. I don't have time to read all your WoT things (no offense).

mp_en_viaje: http://trinque.org/wp-content/themes/trinque/style.css << i see the problem now. your browser prolly hangs on this diana_coman ; i have ly set to just ignore
maxim_mivo: Does your wallet support to transfer funds to a BTC address ? (i saw on the link you provided it transfers to nicknames).
mp_en_viaje: maxim_mivo, yup, !!withdraw 1blablabla
diana_coman: maxim_mivo: yes, it does; you can withdraw the funds to any btc address; ie you receive it in your own deedbot wallet and then you can !!withdraw to anywhere
mp_en_viaje: http://logs.ossasepia.com/log-search?q=!!withdraw&chan=trilema << looks like that.
maxim_mivo: When paying the invoice, you'll see a BTC address where you have to transfer the payment.
mp_en_viaje: it also has built-in accounting (!!ledger) etc. it's quite useful, and in any case better than some website whatever.
mp_en_viaje: maxim_mivo, specifically what i'm asking is if you'll do it here rather than have me load some website.
maxim_mivo: I don't think that's possible.
mp_en_viaje: aite well.
mp_en_viaje: thanks for your time.
maxim_mivo: Is there anything more i can help you with ?
mp_en_viaje: i don't think so, nope.

ossabot: Logged on 2019-10-07 21:25:55 asciilifeform: lobbes: afaik the only promising parking atm.
diana_coman: quite possibly because of uninterrupted bad-experience with anything else previously really
mp_en_viaje: quite possibly.
mp_en_viaje: or if not, because internet age has dawned this solispsistc, single-player-WoWoW thing, "we shall make some statements and proclaiments and expect THE WHOLE WORLD to submit".
diana_coman: what boggles the mind though is that he'd go to the trouble of coming here for 1 hour or even more if asked; but he would turn down several colo boxes rather than set a guy to do !!withdraw
mp_en_viaje: you see it in rando cuntlets too, "this is not how i stated i wish to be used".
mp_en_viaje: diana_coman, the fissure axis seems to be "who's in charge". came here tarabostes wasn't about to walk away knight. reminds me of douchebag dood also
diana_coman: well, some lines in the sand are perhaps even sane to have; but there doesn't seem to be any re-evaluation or anything, extremely rigid in weird places.
diana_coman: mp_en_viaje: ah, that myeah; it did quite start like that indeed.
mp_en_viaje: o look, http://trilema.com/2011/romanul-si-marea/?b=Ce%20face&e=lumea#select is in romanian even!
mp_en_viaje: diana_coman, how to re-evaluate tho if no time to read ? it's a chain.
diana_coman: had yest in #o a funny guy (not romanian though) who was so very busy studying 20 languages (very rigid program!!!) that he didn't have any time for...communicating
mp_en_viaje: "no time to read" implicitly includes "i'm done re-evaluatin ganything"
diana_coman: mp_en_viaje: indeed; though it was that "your stuff"; pretty much "rigid study languages, no time to communicate" just here it's rigidly sticking boxes in racks, no time to know wtf
mp_en_viaje: i mean... come, come now, who above me can claim "no time to X" ? here i sit, like last time, in a bed surrounded by mirrors, MAKING time.
mp_en_viaje: cuz, elementarily, if i didn't make it, i wouldn't have it. i can certainly eat, drink and make merry back to back for the remainder of my days wut.
mp_en_viaje: but i have time to read shaw's deeply inept attempt, like i have time to all sorta things. not because "there's nothing else on tv" anyway, wtf, there was literal parade of sluts, came naked through hotel to see maybe i have time for kitty ? as it happens i didn't. will, later, defo. what can you do.
mp_en_viaje: MAKE time or no time.
diana_coman: that much though is true for anyone; ie either they make time for x or they..don't have it ; and yes, they can eat and drink until they die (though as the line goes, that'll come quickly)
mp_en_viaje: but i don't deem the people with no time as having a life. because wtf life is that, circumvectamur amore.
mp_en_viaje: o hai there hanbot_abroad
hanbot_abroad: howdy. voiced to say you make time for what's important; nothing's important in a system devoid of meaning because everything from god to a cheeseburger has the same weight and emotional relevancy and etc.
mp_en_viaje: this'd be so.
mp_en_viaje: no hierarchy -> no time, just as elementarily.
mp_en_viaje: implicitly what i aimed to resolve with my structured summary in the introduction. but, self-evidently, if no hirarchy -> no meaning -> no possible introduction etc.
hanbot_abroad: unfortunately also --> no regrets, which means no change, and meanwhile i walk away from reading that convo with the sole conclusion people oughta lose a toe at the start of discussions.

diana_coman: fwiw re moldavians, I intend to keep the logger there; they *did* shoot themselves in the foot and so I won't add to that what I planned, but I won't move it away either.
mp_en_viaje: yet this is how business, and for that matter adult life, goes. ALL the fucking time, i saw people much smarter than me, richer than me, taller, prettier, whatever you will, " driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of their women etc" because of this and naught else.
diana_coman: the way I see it, atm a logger is just about what they can handle anyways.
mp_en_viaje: besides, why deny ourselves the benefit of diversity just because definitionally diversity not homogenuous ? it'd be folly writ large.
mp_en_viaje: "i want a diverse bevy of nubile young sluts looking just like this one"

diana_coman: mp_en_viaje: my latest db backup on production server is from Saturday (5th October); apparently the Sunday one didn't make it through.
diana_coman: I doubt it makes any difference though ie it was just me and dpb connected and neither of us active otherwise.
diana_coman: the website's backup is fully fine (ie from the shared pizarro machine nothing's needed for smg)
diana_coman: both test and production servers backups seem fine and up to date at a minimal inspection; full test means setting them up and there's the involved issue of full environment for them (versions of everything and so on); for this reason I'd say end of this week (Sun 13th) rather than "today"
diana_coman: BingoBoingo: my younghands.club backups are fine too so I can confirm I don't need anything from the shared machine re younghands.club either.

asciilifeform: mp_en_viaje: since last rk sold. which is iirc august.
mp_en_viaje: and before that, had one rk ?
asciilifeform: aha ( BingoBoingo , say if this correct )
mp_en_viaje: well, either one or the other of the statements is false. either you did not sell because idiots ; or else did not sell because had not to sell. if the latter's the case, you had not to sell because you took your sweet time.
asciilifeform: 'took sweet time' lol. asciilifeform -- is inmate, in fucking gulag. gets 2w of leave / yr .
mp_en_viaje: but be all this as it may, not like you're not paying for it : the longer you spend prone, the likelier you get hurt.

ossabot: Logged on 2019-10-08 05:54:07 mp_en_viaje: asciilifeform, will you want the boxes shipped over to you first to inspect seals and so on ?
asciilifeform: esp. since the moldavian fella's candidacy fell down. may be a while before a destination is found .
asciilifeform again experimenting w/ 'what if within physical range of asciilifeform ?' but does not expect fat return. granted these wouldn't in a million years eat btc, but w/ mp's agreement, asciilifeform could feed it orcbux and eat btc . in principle.
asciilifeform: i would not propose to attempt 'isp' in the heart of mordor, but possibly could house a box or two that way.
asciilifeform: the smg boxen (already FG'd etc) i expect diana_coman will want sent straight to where they are to live again. and meanwhile they will go under BingoBoingo's bed or similar.
asciilifeform: re mod6's and trinque's , is necessary to ask'em , meanwhile also with BingoBoingo .
asciilifeform: re smg again -- if diana_coman wants cleaning/redisking/inspection, i'll do it , but oughta keep in mind that if they visit usa there is moar likely to be what to inspect for in 1st place, obv.
asciilifeform: as i understand, diana_coman has asked for the old disks to be cremated, so the smg boxes will need redisking, but potentially this could be done on-site where they are to go
asciilifeform: the spread of the impi retardation among heathens is potential problem: would have to either swallow it (i disabled in all of these) or find someone who , like the moldavian, is willing to serialport ( dun solve the problem of os installation tho, to such a place would have to ship'em with disks containing something resembling os )
asciilifeform: in piz, we solved this by having kvm device in the rack. apparently heathens no longer keep these around, near as i can tell.

asciilifeform: see also .

asciilifeform: BingoBoingo have you thought about where to put qntra ? i already miss qntra .
asciilifeform: would like to see it return asap.

asciilifeform: and BingoBoingo will have to decide wat-do re the crater. at the very least must get out of the latech contract, or may have to evacuate on short notice .
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: customers will have to get pro-rated refunds, iirc buncha folx refueled just week ago.
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: rk's i suggest to be offered to their current inhabitants for cost of postage. ( and if anyone would rather have the disk stick cremated, oughta indicate, and it then added to the pyre ) . the rk's per se have no writable storage aside from the sd & stick .
asciilifeform: folx who want live disks mailed, are to understand that the integrity of their contents cannot be guaranteed.
asciilifeform: raid arrays (e.g. asciilifeform's) i recommend to be mailed in N separate envelopes.
asciilifeform: a 'last hurrah' of the raid5 functionality.
asciilifeform: anyone who has something other than a raid5 and wants disks mailed, plox to indicate.
asciilifeform: as for why anyone would want an rk back -- potentially could colo'em , if you buy a 19in box (20bux or so) . most colo outfits dun give a damn what you colo so long as it hangs on the rail .
asciilifeform: will of course cost like any other box .
asciilifeform: they have quite respectable performance, for e.g. blog; and nuffin intelistic inside'em. Gb nic, too.

BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Will use some sort of cushion. The full sized boxes are too large for any suitcase I brought to Uruguay. Hence the value of your ancient giants.

asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: can retrieve it last, if you must. get the disks labeled and out 1st, they ought fit in pocket.
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: rk per se is perhaps the least expensive piece in there, asciilifeform for instance is sitting on a crate of 16 new ones right here and presently nfi what to do with'em
BingoBoingo: Aite
asciilifeform: important to get the disks tho, the rk people may want'em.
asciilifeform: wb mp_en_viaje
mp_en_viaje: aite well, shall be off for the night.
asciilifeform: goodnight mp_en_viaje
mp_en_viaje: :p
BingoBoingo: mp_en_viaje: Enjoy
diana_coman: asciilifeform: dunno, maybe s.nsa could sell hardware including rk plants? for me asciilifeform-seal is worth something really.
diana_coman goes to eat some log
asciilifeform: diana_coman: i'd happily sell. but who to buy...
asciilifeform: and ty diana_coman , i did not know that you esteemed the seal.
asciilifeform will happily build any kind of box for diana_coman's works.
asciilifeform: if diana_coman & co need cyclotron -- will build cyclotron.
diana_coman: asciilifeform: I somehow think I might not be the only one valuing your seal; but anyway.
asciilifeform: btw diana_coman there is bug fix , in case this was lost in the chaos .
ossabot: Logged on 2019-10-07 21:53:44 asciilifeform: lobbes, diana_coman : logotron tree updated, removed 'shlex' , tested with bare hands on local staging box ( baitbot ! ) , can be used .
diana_coman: asciilifeform: I am slowly digesting log (because I ate too much ips-talk today really) but I'll get to that too, thank you.
asciilifeform: ty diana_coman .
asciilifeform: nuffin catastrophic in that patch, simply cures the single-quotes thing.
diana_coman: I got to the point where I'm firing them emails ~ can I order that or the other *without* your "account" that I utterly don't need; and similar.
asciilifeform: diana_coman: anyone got past this just yet ?
diana_coman: some are at least...looking to see if they can
diana_coman: some are yet to wake up and answer
diana_coman: fwiw romanians are *still* the most responsive for some reason; and honestly, I even tried to steer away from ro.
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Off to roll and disk
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: a++
asciilifeform: diana_coman: i currently do not know why mp fatwa'd ro, but must assume it was not because flag is wrong three colours
ossabot: Logged on 2019-10-04 23:32:29 asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: back in '17 when dulap-I crater was still smoking , asciilifeform wanted to try ro . but mp_en_viaje said that it was poor site, and i'm inclined to think that he had good reason to say this.
diana_coman: it *is* poor site; but a. still better than no site b. for diversity/maybe finding some actual people it may still work
asciilifeform: hell i'm even considering the swamp an' digging for offerings there.
diana_coman: ie it's one thing if you look at it to make an isp and another if not
asciilifeform: for 'expendable' parking spot, almost anyffin is worth a test, imho
diana_coman: but yes otherwise and moreover, it's no diversity if I don't go with moldavians but I go with Bucharest; 0 diversity in that really
asciilifeform: diana_coman: if yer box is in a place you can potentially physically get to -- the reqs for the innkeeper are much looser potentially
asciilifeform: ( in re such things as this )

diana_coman: myeah but a bit too many potentially + having to get to it is yet another thing on top of a huge pile
asciilifeform: diana_coman: it isn't as if you rebuild os from empty disk erryday.

lobbes: Add in the feedback cycle, digging into mpwp mysql guts, new additions to spec tacked on (here I would link to various documented pieces on blog, if I had a working one) and I don't come anywhere close to 5-hours. It will be serving Trilema, and it is needed to be correct in one go; no do-overs. My reputation's on the line here. Spot of work my foot!
diana_coman: asciilifeform: from bucharest with amd-love: amd opteron x2150 apu 4 cores 1.5GHz 8 GB ddr3, centos7
diana_coman: but no, they called 3 dudes to talk to me and still can't get over this outlandish idea that I do.not.want.to.make.account.with.them
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Was instructed to ask Latecho to add the handcart door to my card to use the hand truck again. Going for all disks, all I can carry without wheels trip.
asciilifeform: diana_coman: it's still neato. wonder if they'd cut out impi, emplace raid, FG .
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: what means 'add handcard door to card ?'
asciilifeform: *handcart
diana_coman: asciilifeform: while they were willing to talk/ask someone else to come and talk to this weird woman, they were utterly shocked at ~any request; to the point of 4min silence followed by a total change of subject
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Apparently they don't want wheels scuffing up the floors of the lobby, hence have to use service entrance
asciilifeform: diana_coman: sounds like the typical 'leper's bell' of 'we do only what's in this here 3ring binder'
diana_coman: I suppose I'm so outside of their corporation worksheet that they just blink for 4 minutes and reset to next point on the checklist
asciilifeform: diana_coman: 'blink for 4min and reset' is very apt summary, sounds like what BingoBoingo's latech grunts did last night when asked 'wtf'
diana_coman: so despite the lovely amd, I think I can't currently stomach its masters.
asciilifeform: diana_coman: sorta why i dun even look at other than colo anymoar
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Everytime we did this with the wheeled luggage, the WTC people wanked the same wank, but with the luggage we always did that in one shot and non-issue. Card works normally for normal doors.
asciilifeform: diana_coman: it ~always makes moarsense to physically send in a box, esp. if you have box already. costwise too.
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: seems like 9000x greater concern for their (indeed mirror-smooth, i nearly slipped on it) marble floor , than for working dc!!
diana_coman: asciilifeform: atm I don't have box ready for this (I wasn't actually prepared for pizarro death, what can I say) + I'd rather know a bit more about those to whom I'm sending boxes, dunno.
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: hey did they ever fix that button in the lift ?
asciilifeform in piz tower pushed what looked like button in the lift, it fell N stories down, and hole -- razor-sharp
asciilifeform: diana_coman: perhaps you will want to locate several boxes , in diff. parks. moar resistance to sudden deaths.
asciilifeform: http://logs.ossasepia.com/log/trilema/2019-10-08#1942688 << lobbes , i am prolly the slowest pair of hands here, mp never once misses a chance to remind of this...

BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Ah, sí they fixed that number light thing
lobbes: asciilifeform: I dunno, you got that logotron out at breakneck speedz ( I know you recycled phuctor's www chunks, but still )
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: lol naturally, can't have broken lamps!111 or smudged floor! who needs a working cable!1111
asciilifeform: lobbes: if asciilifeform appears to do sumthing quickly, it is only because was simple job. ( or terrible kludge piece. )
lobbes: asciilifeform: I guess that was my point; what is simple for you ain't so simple for me
lobbes: not yet at least
asciilifeform: lobbes: i suspect that you will find certain things very simple, that asciilifeform has not strength to even attempt of yet.
asciilifeform: this was tru for e.g. BingoBoingo .
asciilifeform: lobbes ever heard of kuklachev ?
asciilifeform: fella ran a circus in moscow. with housecats .
lobbes: lol, btw, at dc where we learn marble floors > working dc and lifts that don't have booby traps
asciilifeform: they were thought to be untrainable. but turned out that erry cat had a performance that he's willingly do. was matter of finding.
asciilifeform: lobbes: re dc and floors, this is i suspect typical .
asciilifeform: they , like erry scamatron, are more interested in getting new rubes to sign fat contract than to actually service existing. ( esp. if 'new contract' is 'netflix cache' etc )
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Brb, disk run
lobbes: asciilifeform: interesting re: kuklachev (I had never heard of him). And I see what you mean, though even when found what a certain cat is willing to do, still must train that cat. I do enjoy what I do/have done here so far, just... I still have much to learn
asciilifeform: naturally 0 cat will perform immediately when plucked from alley.
asciilifeform: still trained.
asciilifeform will be the last 1 who is to be asked re training critter, must leave the subj to folx w/ actual high pilotage under their belt, mp & co
asciilifeform: lobbes: speaking strictly for self -- 'quick' jobs are quick because they (incl. 'fit problem in head' phase) can be fit into a single slot in b/w salt mine idjicies. whereas things large enuff as not fit, much moar friction. (erry time must load it in... again, again, ... )
asciilifeform: lobbes: items like this, or this, asciilifeform was able to pull off by burning 'vacation days' .
asciilifeform: ditto phuctor, FG, etc
asciilifeform: which is why when i encounter a fella like shinohai, who has 100% of his time, it boggles my mind that he hasn't built a thermonuclear dirigible simply as a side effect of basic fucking metabolism
asciilifeform: picture, to be able to actually think about something uninterrupted for 3, 4, 10, 100 days!!
diana_coman: asciilifeform: you see the problem on "uninterrupted" but others see it on "think about something" , you know
asciilifeform: diana_coman: this is tru, when i was 7yo also 'had time to think for 100d' but what resulted in was of course not worth to print anywhere ('a good bear but not a good dancer', who wants a 7yo's home-baked diode? )
diana_coman: asciilifeform: did you actually check/press to that last shlex_removal?
asciilifeform: diana_coman: lemme see, 1s (pretty sure i did)
asciilifeform: diana_coman: loox like did. and just nao did again, it presses
asciilifeform: diana_coman: why , didja get eggog ?
diana_coman: asciilifeform: nm, found the trouble, it was corrupted sig file on my end; sorry about the trouble, it's been a long day here.
asciilifeform: hrm, paste.deedbot seems to be dead. ( was it on piz?? i didn't think it were ? )
asciilifeform: diana_coman: ok
asciilifeform: diana_coman: i made same mistake the other day, was convinced i had made a broken patch

asciilifeform: diana_coman: know that not in erry box can one even put FG, even if orc willing to open it -- needs a pad of space. asciilifeform deliberately chose such boxes as had this space.
asciilifeform genuinely bbl, in a bit
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform and everyone else: All disks are out of the rack with the exception of the RockChip kernel SD cards. Maybe a couple of unused RK spare are hiding in the bilge box. A variety of miscellaneous was recovered as well including the KVM, a couple handfuls of USD ttyls, the unsealed FUCKGOATs that were plugged into RockChips, and for sentimental value the Qntra/DNS server I flew into the country with because it's tiny ass fit in
BingoBoingo: the duffel. Some other bilge ware was recovered.
BingoBoingo: !Qlater tell mod6 I apologize, but I have not yet backed up your server. I will return with the disks, power it on again, and see what I can do with the credentials you passed.
lobbesbot: BingoBoingo: The operation succeeded.
BingoBoingo: When I went earlier and wheeled out the three servers, there were two receptionist girls in the glass box. When I returned on disk mission, there was no one in glass box well before normal departing time.
mod6: Thanks BingoBoingo. If it proves difficult to get logged into the server with the disks in the enclosures; perhaps don't worry about it, can just ship the disks back. But while you're at it, it may be pretty helpful if you pull out the raid card and drive cables to the card and send that along as well.
lobbesbot: mod6: Sent 57 minutes ago: <BingoBoingo> I apologize, but I have not yet backed up your server. I will return with the disks, power it on again, and see what I can do with the credentials you passed.
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: got it. what remains in the cage ?
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: and, any final gasps from latech & co ?
asciilifeform: ( the latter largely 'academic' curiosity , but curious )
asciilifeform: mod6: why wouldja want the raid card but not the whole box ?
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform mod6: I plan to return and SSH into the box.
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: What remains are all the rails, misc unused adapters and more USB TTYLs, The Rockchip plant, a small mountain of power and network cables, the rackmount power strip, the two switches, and the following 1U servers that will need wheeled out:
BingoBoingo: TBF/Mod6, Trinque, UY1/Shared Hosting, S.NSA vacant
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: try to get the machines out. errything else after. don't break yer back tho.
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: until what day exactly is the rack paid up ?
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: It should be paid up through the end of this month per my notes. Then there's + 7 business days, etc, etc per the contract.
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: ok. next wheelbarrow plox to rescue trinque and mod6 . then the rest, when you can.
BingoBoingo: <asciilifeform> BingoBoingo: try to get the machines out. errything else after. don't break yer back tho. << Three machines in one trip with wheels went well enough 4 should not be a problem. Without wheels, I am contemplating the logistics as we speak
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: the sooner you officially stop the service, the moar likely can recover sumthing from the orcs. tho , as mp pointed out, it is difficult to picture that we'll see a penny
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Next dive I want to recover mod6's data, whatever fits in the mochila that isn't the switches or power cables. Then I plan to ask for access to the door for wheels.
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: bring the gurl or somebody trusted and hand-carry'em if you must.
asciilifeform: nuffin in that rack weighs moar than a roman legionary's kit. theoretically even 1 can carry.
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Tonight it is too late to get the cardless girl into the building, but yes I am trying to think of something that will make the servers ergonomic enough to carry. Legionaire's kit is meant to be worn. Server meant to be densly racked. The potential to drop a chassis more than anything is what gives me pause.
asciilifeform: diana_coman: here is how FGs went in machine, if this helps. if that space aint there (and in most boxes, in asciilifeform's experience, it aint) then can only put'em by e.g. forgoing raid card and using that space. or in 5in. disk slot (which most also lack.)
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: aite. but ideally all the irons will be safely under BingoBoingo's bed tomorrow.
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Ideally tomorrow they will all be in the habitation module. If recovering the boxes is hindered, THAT, the hindering, is actionable.
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: seems liek already been some hindering today ?
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: if busibodies pop outta that woodwork to hinder, get'em on camera.
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Latecho hasn't done any hidnering today. Just the lobby tile police.
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: i fully expect that when you show up to tear up the contract, they'll try to cook up some bullshit re the cage being in arrears . hence wai important to empty it.
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: dun have to answer this if aint ready yet, but have you had chance to think , where BingoBoingo will go next ?
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Per the contract the cage would have to be in arrears 30 days or longer before they can suspend service, deny access, etc
asciilifeform: well, per the contract there was also gonna be a working pipe!
asciilifeform: seems that contract atm is in '1 direction' mode, american-style, where 'you owe, and we -- uhm, nuffin'
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: also you'll want to at least attempt to get that security deposit back.
asciilifeform: !Qlater tell mod6 you presently majority shareholder. asciilifeform -- minority. ( mp is owed and also rightfully has a say. ) let's discuss asap the lawsuit.
ericbot: Logged on 2019-10-08 15:01:51 mp_en_viaje: ah yes, they do owe us some money, but i wasn't converted afaik.
lobbesbot: asciilifeform: The operation succeeded.
asciilifeform: ftr asciilifeform is in favour of using as much of the remaining piggy as BingoBoingo sees fit , in taking it as far as it can be made to go.
asciilifeform: at the VERY least oughta recover the week+ of dud service + security dep.
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Per my records in the months after they said to stop sending more money for a while, after MP's big incoming wire via Mocky, we spent down much of the security deposit as BTC price was low.
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: what means 'much' ? i.e. all ?
BingoBoingo goes for the statement
asciilifeform: (re piggy -- dun fughet, BingoBoingo , that we also will have to issue refunds to people who had refueled and then had ??? instead of reachable boxes for week+ )
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Right, that's customer equity
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: 1538.58
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: spent ? or remains ?
asciilifeform: this re sec deposit ?
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: It's the odd balance that remains from security deposit/mega bolus going into the datacenter last fall
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: that's genuine money.
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: And it is to be pursued.
asciilifeform: re customers, yes would rather give'em working boxes, but will have to be refund.
