mircea_popescu: dorion, you know, your article skips over the most interesting parts. i can sorta-kinda fill in a sentence like "The bank prevented us from dealing directly with clients in our country of residence 2 as the brokers were never required to obtain any sort of securities license." thus curing it into standing ; but i suspect i might be the ~only one.
diana_coman: http://logs.ossasepia.com/log/trilema/2019-11-13#1951120 - currently I would go with the e5-2620; not only on larger ram & more threads aspect but also because looking at what is available otherwise, it seems to me that this at least hits on the "widely available" even more than the e3, esp in the longer term; fwiw yest I looked at what servers I could source here as well and sourcing AMDs seems to be mainly an American thing.
ossabot: Logged on 2019-11-13 06:26:15 mircea_popescu: diana_coman, so listen, e3-1241 or e5-2620 x2 ?
mircea_popescu: diana_coman, did the whatever you were trying locally die ?
diana_coman: I just came back from the dc visit too; on the plus side, they are still small enough to be able to get to know them and they seem reasonably interested/able to actually have a conversation;
diana_coman: on the negative side, they are totally married to 1. their account-on-website system because, quote "I've built the business around this"
diana_coman: 2. payment in gbp and invoicing with all their bells and whistles
mircea_popescu: mkay.
diana_coman: essentially I'd need to fully interface there
mircea_popescu: stupid thing to "build a business around", but w/e.
mircea_popescu: when i say "the great success of lamp", i mean things quite like ^
diana_coman: mircea_popescu: myeah but what can I say; fwiw I didn't hold much back eg directly told him that ahem, I can see how it's "convenient" for them but that sort of convenience has a cost and moreover it's totally inconvenient for me.
diana_coman: where "me" by that stage was clearly not just me personally.
mircea_popescu: aite. i'm a get the e5 then
diana_coman: anyways; I have pics and I'll still write up the whole thing.
diana_coman: other than that the dc itself & tech side, it all looked quite good really; a rather pleasant thing to see all things in their place and ordered and properly provisioned and all that; but myeah.
mircea_popescu: aha
diana_coman: http://logs.ossasepia.com/log/trilema/2019-11-14#1951170 - I certainly couldn't fill that in and it did precisely pop up while reading, precisely this sentence; I suspect dorion needs more practice defining some manageable scope & focus for one article.

mircea_popescu: lobbes, upon deliberation, i really dun wanna get us-sider servers, fuck tghat dumb shit.
mircea_popescu: sorry for the confounding.
mircea_popescu: wouldja be willing to find something else ?
dorion: http://logs.ossasepia.com/log/trilema/2019-11-14#1951170 << thanks for the feedback, and I wholeheartedly agree with this point. the initial articles I've set myself with have tended to be: go eat this elephant in one sitting with dull utensils. I end up swallowing chunks whole making digestion more expensive. I'll see what I can do to
dorion: circle back on that article to drill down on the more interesting points in subsequent pieces, and for sure work to limit scope moving forward.

mircea_popescu: pretty lulzy. "civilised world" amirite, except for the part where nobody needs them for anything.
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo, "As documented on this blog, undertaking the remains of Pizarro has continued, as documented on this blog."
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: ty, fxd
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: I imagine this holds for most of Northwest Europe. "Nobody in particular needs us, but we think we are far enough ahead to have an advantage if we can talk everyone else into stopping with us"
mircea_popescu: well, the first part for sure. for all the "not racist" blather, the euro-africans literally think there's some magic in the string "netherlands" that prevents it outright from simply being zamibia.
mircea_popescu: there's no such thing ; subsaharan africa === western europe today. pretense notwithstanding (spoiler : exactly equal amts of pretense on BOTH camps)
BingoBoingo: I imagine their engineers in government imagine that being more Zamibia will let them carry their socialism further on stored energy. "Cheaper!!!" Nevermind Uruguay, Argentina, and Scandanavia demonstrating the opposite.
mircea_popescu: reality doesn't matter if you don't agree to it.
BingoBoingo: Who needs the big picture when you can hide in some details?

mircea_popescu: diana_coman, you know it's peek not peak
diana_coman: right.
diana_coman: I ...know it; still mess it up repeatedly, grrr.
mircea_popescu: lol
mircea_popescu: in other news, i'm considering getting an upgrade for mp-wp, wherein comments marked as spam are displayed for as long as the ip they were made from is loading the page
mircea_popescu: the drawback is that most spam ops use diff boxes for harvesting and posting, sadly.
BingoBoingo: Seems like it may catch more simple retards than organized spammers.
mircea_popescu: sadly.
mircea_popescu: on some level, the obviousness of "why should i be forced to decide either all or none" grates. false dilemma. but on the other end, the practicalities of "alright... distinguish then" are insurmountable.
mircea_popescu: then the bootstrapping problem. "suppose you let the wot work it, make trilema be gossipd, people can see the comments of people they talk to"
mircea_popescu: well... so how do they meet then
BingoBoingo also unsure about encouraging the simple retard flavor of spammer by making it seem like what they does is working.
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo, why not ? idiots ~should~ waste themselves, it's the only point of nature.
mircea_popescu: that's what pretty much everything existing is all about : making idiots think idiocy works.
mircea_popescu: highly successful at it, too. in fact, the one key feature of any reality simulation. "does your terrarium make idiots think their idiocy works ?" pass/fail.
BingoBoingo: Point taken. Toxoplasmosis keeps reinventing itself for reasons
ossabot: Logged on 2019-11-11 13:22:52 BingoBoingo: It's almost what toxoplasmosis tries to do to rats except... entirely self inflicted
mircea_popescu: in the end, the tragedy of human existence is that everyone gets exactly what they thought they wanted.
diana_coman: eh, if you can make idiots *think*, it's already something.
mircea_popescu: lol
mircea_popescu: constructive "think", "actively misrepresent"
diana_coman: I suppose I'd call it along the lines of "give them hope it works"; because it's also quite the only way it can work given the other side of "make idiocy cost more" - for as long as there is hope, the cost will be happily paid.
mircea_popescu: in the end, the doom of self-expression as a ~default~ activity, occuring ~in the absence of understanding~ ; and the power of understanding dervied thereby, to actually inhibit action very much stands as the exact definition of the tragedy of human condition. a trite point, at that.
mircea_popescu: diana_coman, remember dr a's point, "pay idiots in lottery tickets" ?
diana_coman: I thought that was the comedy! lolz
diana_coman: ahahha, I don't recall it but it does fit his utterings as I got to read them otherwise, for sure.
mircea_popescu: lemme fish it out

mircea_popescu: http://trilema.com/2009/dac-as-fi-io-sef/#comment-7147 rappel
diana_coman: come to think of it, I guess that's the root cause of my despising hope really.
mircea_popescu: hope you can believe in!
diana_coman: lol
mircea_popescu: in other news : there's this dude [www.pornhub.com/model/sleepy_b][sleepy_b] uploading extremely well rendered video to pronsites. he happens to be from uy. is there any chance in hell BingoBoingo might spot him somehows ?
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: Want me to try to get him into #eulora or land him somewhere else?
mircea_popescu: #eulora'd work well
BingoBoingo: Aite, I'll try to make contact, get him a steak or choripan, and try to put him on the IRC.
mircea_popescu: eat well, it's on me.
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: Some of the locals have weird, counter-quality tastes.
BingoBoingo will absolutely not be taking anyone, self included to MVD's only fried chicken joint
mircea_popescu: lol
BingoBoingo: It... it's disgusting in ways the US trough style eateries have trouble matching. I suspect it spoiled this entire country on the idea of frying chicken.
