Pizarro ISP March 31st Update

Sunday, March 31st, 2019

Satisfaction was received for the first aborted attempt to purchase a machine for Cuntoo experiments in the face of a commercially inept vendor, and a different machine was secured. This machine is beefier and had a higher advertised cost (~10,000 pesos) than the first one I attempted to get, but it has the benefit of having been acquired. For reasons of price going over the estimate and surprisingly pleasant but rack unfirendly ergonomics, the machine and the expense of its purchase will not be going on Pizarro's balance sheet. Work to get a Cuntoo machine in Uruguay has begun.

The board has begun moving coins to contribute Pizarro's second round of investment. The datacenter will need to receive cash again next month.

Pizarro ISP March 24th Update

Sunday, March 24th, 2019

The attempt to purchase a machine for Cuntoo experiments has yet to place a machine in my hands. Satisfaction is being pursued, and I will have it. The vendor claims they simply failed to deposit the merchandise with the Correo during the entire week after the purchase was made through Mercado Libre. This pursuit of satisfaction will be a test of both the individual vendor doing business as ACCESOPC3000 and Mercado Libre Uruguay as a platform for meeting folks strangers with things to sell. In the end a machine for Cuntoo testing will be acquired.

Our Technical director has immersed himself in finishing FFA's peh after which his intention is to immerse himself in Pizarro.

Pizarro ISP March 18th Update

Monday, March 18th, 2019

This past week was a lighter one for customer support requests. Invoices were issued. A machine was sourced for experimenting with and learning Cuntoo at a cost of 4100 pesos. The machine in question is a small portable which appears to be abundantly available in the local refurbished market. Delivery is expected by end of day Wednesday from the interior of the country, and if it doesn't show there will be an opportunity to practice seeking satisfaction in Spanish. Reading of Cuntoo scripts and build reports in anticipation of the test subject's arrival is heating up.

One day was lost in the wake of Freenode problems to evaluating the glue candidates in the IRC horserace based on documentation quality with little to show for it.

Pizarro ISP March 10th Update

Sunday, March 10th, 2019

Several trips to the rack were made this week to provide customer requested resets. The window for our next hardware delivery mission has been pushed past March and the lack of an Ada compiler for ARM64 appears to be lowering the priority for racking a large RockChip plant when other hardware is close to eating the whole Republican stack, to the extent one has been captured thus far.

March invoices are being prepped. Continued following of the Cuntoo discussions is promising to the point I will probably acquire a machine locally within the next week or two to join the compiling party. I anticipate a suitable machine being acquirable for 100 to 200 USD, but closer to the 100 USD side. Cuntoo documentation is increasing, and the window to watch without doing is closing.

The official inflation hit the local taxes this month after hitting electricity last month. Meanwhile the low price the Republic is paying for Bitcoin is driving substantial growth in intangibles as the datacenter and other fiat expenses keep getting paid.

Pizarro March 4th Update

Monday, March 4th, 2019

Prep work to compile the statement has begun. Board members aciilifeform and mod6 have begun coordinating logistics for a second round of investment to recapitalize Pizarro. Some customer service was done for a shared hosting customer and some other customer support was done to support a short term rental customer.

Preparing paperwork for the local envirorasts lead to a reading hold as it is unclear commercial use only importers even need to renew their affidavits. This reading pushed the paperwork's completion against the pre-Carnaval low deskjockey productivity window. The paperwork will be taken to the appropriate office this coming Wednesday for submission and a definitive answer as to whether it was even necessary.

Some marketing payloads were prepared, and since marketing is an empirical activity they will need to be A/B tested as the conversion engine spins up.
