The one thing the US has is cables everywhere. Argentina hangs off of the "Tannat" cable still further from Fortaleza than Uruguay
lobbes: ver, which is very nice
asciilifeform: lobbes: mp dun want that one, tho, cuz ' you can't do x, can't do y, you're anti-useful ' etc, who am i to argue
asciilifeform: lobbes: it could be revved up in day or 2 but all i got here on desk to fill with is the listed items atm.
asciilifeform: lobbes: why, do ~you~ want it ?
asciilifeform: i.e. for own purposes ?
asciilifeform: just cuz mp dun want to inhabit it dun mean it could not be inhabited. he did not say 'i'ma excommunicate anyone who lives there' just yet.

asciilifeform: wb BingoBoingo
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: I am presently inside the rack. It appears once everything went dark they decided to unblock the IPs as reported. Or the did it when they saw I was wheeling out the last 1U servers and warned them I'd be back to check
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: we discussed this, neh. they'll 'fix' and it'll go until again breaks.
BingoBoingo: Well last eta to restore something resembling a service was 1 month
BingoBoingo: And Imma do a test
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: the subscribers who are jettisoning their iron may want it plugged in until last day, let'em say.
asciilifeform: oughta keep in mind that live disks could fall into hands of enemy then.
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: With the 1Us out I am not inclined to plug anything back in unless explicitly requested by the customer
asciilifeform: i dun expect that anyone'll request, but see no reason to refuse if specifically requested.
asciilifeform: so long as $subscriber understands what he's getting into.
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: you can try plugging qntra in, if you dare.
asciilifeform: ( iirc lived on BingoBoingo's personal iron )
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: It came out in duffel run. Was on tiny box I flew in that held first pizarro www and dns server along with first pizarro trb node
asciilifeform: aha i recall
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: can plug it in, just be prepared to lose the box if the orcs lock you out
asciilifeform: it's a , wat, 100bux box ?
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: They seemed very disinclined to lock out seeing as I wheeled out the last 1Us today, stated my intention to empty cabinet, etc
asciilifeform: well it's paidup through end of oct neh.
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: All in it came under 500 USD. One of the AMD mobile processors on ITX board in iirc 10-ish inch deep rackmount case
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: if you wanna plug it in, it's b/w you and odin.
asciilifeform: whothefuckknows, maybe somehow latech obtained, from martians, proper net pipe in last 2d.
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: I'd only plug it in to see if it draws the aggro, and no. They simply unblocked the IPs per Oscar's report. Oscar is candid when the salesorcs aren't around. But... He's in a position where he's the telecom manager by title and has not the telecom to manage
asciilifeform: so they simply recocked the 'if ddos, unplug'em' pistol, eh.
BingoBoingo: Right
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: that thing's prolly destined for the scrapyard, so wainot, plug in, see for own curiosity what happens to it.
asciilifeform: it's yer box.
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: It's portable enough it could make fine desktop machine.
asciilifeform: then not. as you like.
asciilifeform: ( 500 seems steep for such a thing, btw, imho. )
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: I assembled it from parts. RAM, SSD, etc add up. Did not come from a surplus pile.
asciilifeform: even then.
asciilifeform: where didja buy them parts, BingoBoingo , at airport ??
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Newegg. SSD and a power supply in the right form factor for the case were iirc the big expenses
BingoBoingo: It didn't seem to make sense to scrimp on the power supply or disk.
asciilifeform: all them folx who think ' asciilifeform's machines expensive, why need angela when can monica ' oughta try buyin' from 'folx who do x, who do y', see how they sing.
asciilifeform: equiv. of e.g. uy1 'new, on newegg' easily 25k usd.
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: observe that in 2y of piz, not 1 'ew, he buys old irons' component failed.
asciilifeform: why ? cuz asciilifeform tested'em. incl. ps, with meters. an' scrubbed, etc.
asciilifeform: an' 'burn-in' .
asciilifeform: but! asciilifeform apparently charlatan. rent, why not, some piece of even older junk in turkey, wainot.
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Power for dollar, you do seem to have a knack for buying machines. As I'm digesting the day's conversation the objection from mp seems to be the mindset which produces this frugality is handicapping when extended to other areas.
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: am i wrong btw ? did even 1 fail ?
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Not one of them failed, and I can very much see why you are inclined to rehome them.
asciilifeform: bbut, BingoBoingo ! 'who needs fucktarded angela when..'! wainot, go, pay 25k for box that asciilifeform sews for 1k.

lobbes: In related leased server news, turns out the singapore hoster was more trouble than worth; communication impossible (all emails met by automated "ticket" creation followed by 5+ scripted spam responses) and they wanted scanned driver's license + credit card. Told 'em noty

Once they provision the thing and give login info then auctionbot will live again. However, if it is desperately needed in the meantime I can slap it up on the usg hoster as a stop-gap measure
ericbot: Logged on 2019-10-09 00:05:43 asciilifeform: i suppose oughta proper auction.
lobbes: Ended up just calling my current usg hoster I use for the logs; they said no problem and would get a second server leased and provisioned 'today' (albeit I was told this 12 hours ago) . I'll say one thing, at least this particular usg hoster is responsive.
asciilifeform: lobbes: the usa hosters that deal w/ humans, are pretty starved for biz & eagertoplease. they're dying under lulazon and other 'i can't believe it ain't hosting!'
asciilifeform: the people who 'Just Want'(tm)(r) 'a box, 24/7, dun want to swap raid disks, or keep a greasy asciilifeform around to voltage test ps' etc. are all nao in 'cloud'.

Medium term plans include sitting tight while I save up a sizable wad of fiatola (now that I *can* actually save) and sort through the crap I've accumulated; sending unessentials to /dev/null
ericbot: Logged on 2019-10-10 00:07:08 asciilifeform: lobbes: why, do ~you~ want it ?
asciilifeform: an' it's sold by the pound. interchangeable, predictable, exactly like 'serious biz' folx luvv so Much.
asciilifeform: lobbes: 100% of dc in asciilifeform's immediate 50km radius, nao host ~just~ lulazon.
asciilifeform: it's squeezed out the actual-people rack-a-box biz.
lobbes: I believe it. Most big corps also bought into "cloud" marketing
asciilifeform: even usg.cia nao on lulazon.
asciilifeform: they have an entire shitfarm not far from here. aint even seekrit anymoar where.
BingoBoingo: Maybe they did? Anyways what I read this afternoon was MP opening up the chance to start deploying S.NSA funds to rent and give pipe to a rack, that while in hostile lands is near-ish to asciilifeform who seems married to the same lands. When faced with this offer the reflexive response was to terminally stall on the fiat/BTC conversion problem. You did not propose investigating or collaborating with other folks still stuck inside the
BingoBoingo: wire on solving the fiat/BTC conversion problem. From there things went downhill.
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: i dun force-feed people , it dun work.
asciilifeform: also, BingoBoingo , even if he had asked for the rack, we cannot teleport the boxen, it wouldnot satisfy the 'omfg want uy1 NAO!!' req.
asciilifeform: right-NAO! can only be done via diana_coman's method .
lobbes: I mean, wasn't the UY1 nao problem already solved earlier in the convo with stop-gap measures
ericbot: Logged on 2019-10-09 19:04:12 mp_en_viaje: asciilifeform, tomorrow if nothing yields by then, yes.
asciilifeform: lobbes: that'd be (see thread) lulazon.
lobbes: right, temporary solution. I.e. didn't seem germane to 'can't teleport boxen' point re: the rack convo
asciilifeform: btw just as mp_en_viaje said 'orc dc is at least just as terrible, turns out, as usa dc' i'm quite convinced that 'lease rando box from turks' aint any 'cleaner' than 'ask asciilifeform for lulazon aws in 15min'
asciilifeform: lulazon , for all that i spit on it, worx. like a well-cleaned airport toilet in munich .
asciilifeform: if one dun give a damn whether to live in a public toilet, it's ~the~ public toilet.
asciilifeform: iirc it even knows how to eat btc ( tho ftr i never once considered to try )
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Well it'd take ARIN a week or so to get your IPs which would make for a tight schedule even FedEx'ing or couriering boxes, but the lockup on fiat/BTC interfacing so early and definitively...
asciilifeform: i've had a certain piece of shit running there for 5y, lobbes . and it stayed up 24/7/365.
asciilifeform: 'the customer', BingoBoingo , 'is always right'(tm)(r) .
asciilifeform: you oughta know that.
BingoBoingo: lobbes: Part of the UY1 problem is solved. Backups are on a machine awaiting trinque making them available. Other part of UY1 problem is standing up an "anyserver" to get some blogs up and running again.
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: I can't help it if no one finds the US safe and rich enough to do bicycle cash deliveries
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: mp asked for x. upfront i told that can only produce y. he said 'no ty' and i respect.
asciilifeform: if i had x up my sleeve, i swear, would not lie, would pull it out.
asciilifeform: i aint about to try to convince that x == y when it != . or that i can bake an x outta toothpicks in 3days.or whichever.
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: cash delivery would do 0.
BingoBoingo: Aite, I'm going to stop sitting on the DC floor, put some cables in the bag and hope it isn't raining when I reach the surface world
asciilifeform: goodnight BingoBoingo .

asciilifeform: except for the day he doesn't.
asciilifeform: or the day is fbi stoolie.
asciilifeform: etc
BingoBoingo: Well, that's what less eager fellow who wants BTC is for
asciilifeform: and on top of it all, that rack aint doin' anyone any good when asciilifeform gassed.

asciilifeform: trinque: ever wanted to ?
trinque: can't say that I do.
asciilifeform: trinque: all you'd have to do, is convert arbitrary tonnage of btc to usd, pick an' lease a rack, fill it with irons, y'know, replace asciilifeform and the other charlatans who previously did this.
asciilifeform: oh and of course visit it erry coupla days, clean it, put in os for people, etc.
trinque: no startup is an every couple days affair. it's an every waking moment affair, and it redefines waking without your asking too.
asciilifeform: i'm not even making a joke against mp , perhaps he's right that somewhere there lives the hero with 8 hands who can do all of this on spec.
asciilifeform: trinque: indeed it does.

mp_en_viaje: if i reside in a location (which i do, multiple) i can answer a number of questions. "where's the best restaurant", i can answer, and if i like you it'll even be "i'll take you there". "are there any hot whores ?" i can answer, and if i like you i can even send you some. "do you know a lawyer ?" i can answer, and so following.
mp_en_viaje: when i returned to timisoara i moved into a place my left-behind man on the ground got for me, when phf showed up in minsk i took him to places my advance team either researched or actually scouted, these are things.
mp_en_viaje: ownership of a place is a thing.
mp_en_viaje: so the question actually was, "any chance you'd extend your presumed ownership of georgia-carolina-tenesee" into the tri-state area such as to cover this inept schmuck, who can't apparently get out of the house, and help him out do basic self-support tasks ?
mp_en_viaje: because this is what you're supposed to fucking do, being our man in amsterdam means you can answer questions about amsterdam.
mp_en_viaje: that's what BingoBoingo_ was to do in uruguay, and did as-best-he-could which didn't get accepted as acceptable, let alone very well, this is what mocky went to do in qatar -- figure out if it's worth doing at all, this is what life is.
mp_en_viaje: and that's the expectation, whoever;s resident answers questions. "i need a car" here you go. "seems this deal's going south" "i know this lawyer", "we want to X" "you'll have to p q and r, ima send guy over to talk to you about p, no problem, q you do thus and following, r is iffy, becayse s and t considerations, ima see what can be done".
mp_en_viaje: that's the format, and that's even the fucking reason of existing. if this isn't what you do, in what sense are you even a person, what the fuck, you're somebody's maid, ploughssharer, tavern wench, whatever it is you think you appear or attempt to say you're at no risk of being taken for a gentleman.
mp_en_viaje: in any case, if you want to sell one or ten or a hundred bitcoin in budapest i can tell you where ; or in kiev, or in munich, or in i dunno if i make myself clear here, but this vegetative state where you can do nothing, you know no one etcetera is not fit for independent living. if you're going to live like that you must live in the household of another, as a servant.
mp_en_viaje: to live independently you must master your environment sufficiently so as to warrant it.

mp_en_viaje: thus they indeed built a drab gray world, with no instagram sluts vying for a chance at being the next "avon ambassador", no twerking girlies tryna "make it in dis biz" of "rap" which consists of dudes vying for a chance of being the nike ideal salesman, whose paper icon is in every nike shop so the actual shoe salesman can hide after this nike jesus and sell from behind the mask
mp_en_viaje: and for that matter no cosmetics -- if girl at home ain't tryna immitate the girl selling news on tv, what need for rouge ?
mp_en_viaje: and similarily military/penitentiary underwear universally, and the yearning for something, ANYTHING else that goes with it.
mp_en_viaje: and then "inexplicably" they just fucking ended. because, apparently, meaning is not independent of the means to meaning, and if you don't manage to produce meaning you don't manage to produce anything.
mp_en_viaje: notwithstanding objectively the milk was better, and the only chocolare available better than the mode, and the mean, let alone average chocolate available in "democracy", and in general yes, an "objective dollar" / pound of silver DID, indisputably, buy more in socialism than "capitalism".
mp_en_viaje: except, of course, nobody fucking wanted it. but other than that -- yes.

crowncloud_: just checking into invoicing via deedbot -- we usually handle support/invoicing etc all via our client area (helps keep track of invoices/updates the customer on any network maintanence etc)
diana_coman: crowncloud_: via deedbot please.
mp_en_viaje: !!up crowncloud_
deedbot: crowncloud_ voiced for 30 minutes.
crowncloud_: let me see -- i mean, for support etc as well, it would be very useful if via the client area, because we have different staff on rotating shifts, so someone or the other would be available to help you out rather than waiting for me to come online :P
diana_coman: crowncloud_: they can come online too, no? have them reg a key each and leave a znc on, what
crowncloud_: hmm issue is, not all staff have access to the datacenter stuff (for security reasons) so there's a internal escilation for such tasks via support tickets
diana_coman: so they can escalate it internally in any way; the point is: one contact here and then that contact can escalate and do whatever in your system
mp_en_viaje: it's not really gonna work to try and get the republic on website.
diana_coman: that is not going to work at all.
crowncloud_: hmm
BingoBoingo: crowncloud_: In my experience serving these clients they practicly support themselves most of the time. Very tech literate. The few things they ask however, they need.
crowncloud_: Yup -- just trying to see how to make it best possible, because I don't want to leave anyone hanging for support and at the same time, for billing as well. I don't usually want staff to interact with customers as it leads to a very "mixed" of experience
BingoBoingo: crowncloud_: I understand that. Last datacenter had much of their staff disappear sometime after 8 September this year.
crowncloud_: oh
crowncloud_: hmm would support/invoicing etc work via EMail ?
crowncloud_: the same ID to/from which you sent us an email earlier today ?
BingoBoingo: And by "much of their staff" I mean my point man with a good head.
mp_en_viaje: what do you have against irc anyway
crowncloud_: nothing against IRC
diana_coman: crowncloud_: that was my email, lol; it won't really work for everyone anyway; and really, what's against irc? it's ok, we don't bite the unexperienced.
diana_coman: crowncloud_: and I get what you say re mixed, not like I didn't talk to...ahem, quite a lot of isp employees those days.
diana_coman: crowncloud_: basically establish a presence on irc too, they'll probably even train up while at it, if anything.
crowncloud_: na nothing against IRC really, its just that the panel handles it all for us, bills are auto-generated on the due date, support alerts go to all members so everyone on-shift is alerted of whatever issue etc so they can all provide you updates as we get them from the datacenter side
mp_en_viaje: so basically he needs an irc bridge for his backend
diana_coman: ahahaha; quite
mp_en_viaje: you know ?
diana_coman: ikr.
mp_en_viaje: not like pizarro wrote itself one, for all the aferations of intensive care etc.
mp_en_viaje: the pizarro irc isp suite'd have been quite useful right now, "here, use this"
diana_coman: crowncloud_: as mp_en_viaje says, in time you could bridge this over with custom software too but for the moment just a person to do the bridging (or 2-3 on shifts, whatever); you know what'd work
diana_coman: mp_en_viaje: now you released the trackbacks and feedbot is foaming with them, lolz
mp_en_viaje: lol siz
mp_en_viaje: soz*
diana_coman: mp_en_viaje: and yes, irc isp suite would have been great; I'm quite sure it would have made my search way more fruitful too really.
mp_en_viaje: i wonder why it never occured.
crowncloud_: let me see, I'll have a chat with my boss and see how it goes, I'll drop a reply to the email ? or ?
mp_en_viaje: here.
crowncloud_: sure
mp_en_viaje: you can voice yourself now,
crowncloud_: aha ty :)
mp_en_viaje: just say !!up to deedbot in pm and then !!v the otp it gives you
mp_en_viaje: since diana_coman rated you

deedbot: accepted: 1
asciilifeform: ^ on request of diana_coman .
BingoBoingo: ATTN ALL: Latecho has silently disabled my access to the datacenter. All that remains in the rack per my last survey are 1. Switch for the incoming connection 2. less sophisticated switch serving RK plant 3. RK plant (minus drives) 4. Rails 5. A small mountain of network and power cables 6. Many Racknuts, mostly unsused 7. One platic tote box, empty
mp_en_viaje: ahahaah they actually stoled it ? good thing you got the shit out
BingoBoingo: Seriously. Glad I didn't warn then before wheeling out the last 1Us. Still between then and this afternoon's visit to SWEEP AND CLEAN while packing... I was still able to get in last night. WTF sort of delay is that.
BingoBoingo: Anyways, they've captured 1. weird switch any prospective or current customers are going to "brand fag" about being offered 2. Commodity switch already plentiful on local market 3. some single board computers 4. rails, cables, and other shit it would have been nice for them to have Jan/Feb 2018!!!
BingoBoingo: Anyways, after taking care of some other things Imma draft a "Let's get this liability of a contract off both of our books and cleanly and inexpensively as possible" letter. Will not fire off without getting some reads here of the draft.
mp_en_viaje: nah, just complain your key don't work.
mp_en_viaje: play dumb, what do you care.
BingoBoingo: Aite. Will play dumb and let them accumulate breaches.
BingoBoingo: Also visited the commercial shippers today. Going to have to get my own boxes and will probably be headed to the networking hardware store tomorrow to see what they got.
BingoBoingo: mp_en_viaje: Aite, dumb played.
BingoBoingo: The sutures holding my scrotum to this horse feel substantially less tight than they did even this morning.
mp_en_viaje: cool deal
BingoBoingo: Anyways, I'm pretty sure even though I wheeled out servers with a hand truck earlier, doing so yesterday while someone was paying attention... was probably a shock. Especially in light of the pseudo-classism thing that goes in in this part of the world.
BingoBoingo: "Colocates servers, why wouldn't he hire a 'fletes' to do the manual labor?"
BingoBoingo: Anyways, despite the signs of unwellness, it would still be surprising if I don't have access because they don't have access either.
mp_en_viaje: http://logs.ossasepia.com/log/trilema/2019-10-10#1944537 << i don't think you're a liar. i think you're a https://i.ytimg.com/vi/QO6WLGB4RBU/maxresdefault.jpg ; and as your misfortune would have it very few interesting or important things in this world can be done single handedly.

ericbot: Logged on 2019-10-10 08:29:13 mp_en_viaje: i can't even be arsed to distinguish whether it's the case that some weirdo is in fact SO weird as to actually have an xray machine, microscopes etcetera but 0 boxes, or rather the case some fifteen yo is just talking along with the crowd, a sort of [][zelig], becoming overweight when talking to overweight people about their obexsity and growing a beard when hanging out with rabbis.
mp_en_viaje: BingoBoingo, would also be lulzy.
BingoBoingo: mp_en_viaje: Not outside the realm of possibility, but yes. Would be surprising. Then again there was no one in the glass humans box yesterday at an hour 1. Well after local lunch hour and a half concludes 2. Well before local workday concludes. Fellow who walked me out had to come from one of the two other datacenters (the other two are under different S.A. corp for Freezone purposes, maybe more solvent?)
mp_en_viaje: wait, walked you out ? i thought the keycard thingee just quit
BingoBoingo: mp_en_viaje: Yesterday I had to use the service enterance because wheels.
BingoBoingo: Keycard did just quit
mp_en_viaje: oh oh
mp_en_viaje: and you figure that gave it away ?
BingoBoingo: But never worked for the honest wheels door
BingoBoingo: mp_en_viaje: I would have thought first batch of wheeling would have, but apparently neither receptionist cared that day nor does anyone appear to mid the security cameras at the enterance.
BingoBoingo: But during the conversation never said anything definitive as to my future operations rather than my clients'operations, but did emphasize the difficulty of continuing as is. This may have baited the keycard.
BingoBoingo: And yet I was in the rack last night many hours after the wheeling out.
BingoBoingo: But the lack of anyone in the humans box seems to be a strong "less than skeleton/prize crew at the helm" situation
BingoBoingo: Empty humans box during business hours has been the exception in the past. Consistently seeing it when never seeing it before...
BingoBoingo: not at this frequency
mp_en_viaje: a well
BingoBoingo: Anyways. Having everything but the one switch powered down when the network doesn't work seems like the only sane response to walking into the Monday Air conditioner disaster.
BingoBoingo: Also not a necessary leaving tell when people other than HVAC folk were seen trying to fix HVAC crisis. It's a natural equipment preservation move.
BingoBoingo: "Yes, despite paying for powered rack... Running machines that may become surprise uncooled when they don't even network access is a great risk/reward calculation.

mp_en_viaje: heh
billymg: hey all
billymg: BingoBoingo: i took a snapshot of my blog db when piz briefly came back after the unexpected outage, and i have local copies of my patches (i see diana_coman mirrored the mp-wp patches, but i also have the mp-wp-tests patches)
billymg: it would still be nice to get a copy of some of the directories on my old rk if i'm not too late
BingoBoingo: billymg: Aite, I have your Rockchip drive. GPG me what you want
billymg: sure, one sec
BingoBoingo going over local contract law again. Tristan Narvaja produced some gems. Art. 1273. La violencia moral no afectará la validez del contrato, sino cuando por la condición de la persona, su carácter, hábitos y sexo, pueda juzgarse que ha debido naturalmente hacerle una fuerte impresión. Tampoco afectará la validez de los contratos el mero temor reverencial.
lobbes: pretty lulzy re: keycard BingoBoingo. Good thing you grabbed irons indeed
lobbes: http://logs.ericbenevides.com/log/trilema/2019-10-10#1944415 << I see what you mean, and this makes sense. In that case, I must confess I have not spent my time here in carolinastan taking ownership of the place. Certainly have not made and BTC/fiat interface contacts, which I do see now as foolish.
ericbot: Logged on 2019-10-10 07:48:20 mp_en_viaje: ownership of a place is a thing.
lobbes: I fell into ill thinking in which I reasoned that since I don't want to live here ~forever~ and that I don't really like the place that I am content with being a hermit for the time being.
lobbes: But this is faulty reasoning; e.g. mp_en_viaje sure as fuck didn't like Argentina yet knew that place inside and out (which is how he even came to the conclusion that it sucked so hard in the first place)

ericbot: Logged on 2019-10-08 00:14:45 mp_en_viaje: "not talking to many people you don't know ~= suicide" might've been more productive a lesson.
billymg: i've been so lost in corporate world these past few years it's all i know, and vow not to make the same mistake once i jump the fence
BingoBoingo: billymg: Aite. I'll try to have these tarballed GPG'd and uploaded within the next 24 hours. Will let you know if I have any issues.
lobbes: billymg, right? Ditto, though I ought to start talking to more people regardless of where I am. Sure it is 'easier' to just not talk to people, but the easy things are easy for a reason
lobbes: in other news, my second server is finally provisioned. I'm off to resurrect auctionbot and blog!
billymg: lobbes: i don't know if this is any defense but i find when try to talk to people here i'm met with http://63.80.184.72/blog/influence.html
billymg: anything i _want_ to talk about, they absolutely _do not_ want to talk about
billymg: it's very discouraging
billymg: BingoBoingo: ty, and no rush
billymg: i'm gonna be out all next week
lobbes: billymg: oya, I encounter that as well, which is what leads to my hermit behavior I find ("meh, I don't even enjoy hanging with that guy; would rather just be alone"). But part of networking I suppose is just dealing with it and making the effort. Not like BingoBoingo had to be best buds with his bicycle guy contact, either
billymg: yeah, for sure
mp_en_viaje: http://logs.ossasepia.com/log/trilema/2019-10-10#1944720 << the correct reasoning is to observe that since you don't intend to stay, therefore mistakes are cheap.
