00:04:31 mircea_popescu: kako has it actually

00:04:36 mircea_popescu: ancient bitcoinica bug

00:04:50 mike_c: RFC: http://www.btcalpha.com/mpif-tracker/

00:04:52 assbot: Btc Alpha - Analysis tools for bitcoin finance.

00:05:46 mircea_popescu: mike_c, o wow, how is bitbet negastive ? she lost a bet meanwhile ?

00:05:55 mike_c: sort of

00:06:03 mike_c: er, yes

00:06:09 mike_c: she won, but it didn't cover the small hedge

00:06:19 mircea_popescu: link ?

00:07:03 mike_c: http://bitbet.us/bet/802/bitcoin-to-drop-under-300-before-june/#b5

00:07:03 assbot: BitBet - Bitcoin to drop under $300 before June :: 4.75 B (10%) on Yes, 41.24 B (90%) on No | closed 1 week 2 days ago

00:08:29 mircea_popescu: ah i c

00:08:56 mircea_popescu: dude is it great that these aren't related and so p2 can cover p4 etc

00:09:16 mircea_popescu: anywya, splendid tool that thing.

00:09:47 mike_c: will get even more live when jurov finishes his thing :)

00:10:03 mircea_popescu: splendid.

00:10:38 mircea_popescu: once bb's pot increases significantly i'll bug him to do something similar, but for now a small wildcard is all the spritz needed

00:10:58 mircea_popescu: anywya, fascinating what open *really* means.

00:11:08 mike_c: agreed

00:11:39 mircea_popescu: and making history and all that jazz all the derps claim

00:12:35 BingoBoingo: I'm still wondering how I might do that, but there are ideas.

00:14:10 mike_c: jurov's book would make infinite loop anyway. nav = (pc1,2,3,4) + nav * pc5 shares

00:16:09 mircea_popescu: part of the reason why i took him of nav pricing

00:16:15 mircea_popescu: he's doing mkt value.

00:21:11 mircea_popescu: o look at that, jd a whole dime up since yest too ?

00:21:16 mircea_popescu: muy bien muy bien

02:42:51 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [AM1] 1 @ 0.21004478 BTC [-]

02:45:08 decimation: asciilifeform: re: cvt: interesting. It seems to me that saturating the secondary would clip the output waveform, precautions must have been taken to prevent this

02:47:36 decimation: books.google.com/books?id=h2Es9vpaKhQC&pg=SA9-PA2

03:09:17 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [SCRYPT] 5 @ 0.0303 = 0.1515 BTC [-]

03:11:17 decimation: asciilifeform: after reading that chapter, it appears that ferroresonant transformers help with voltage regulation, suppressing harmonics and transients, as well as riding through nasty undervolt conditions (that kill switching power supplies). They aren't very helpful for momentary outages, as you have said.

03:11:59 asciilifeform: decimation: correct.

03:12:05 decimation: I might have to go find one of my own, if they are available for cheap.

03:12:06 asciilifeform: decimation: for outages, ordinary ups.

03:12:25 asciilifeform: decimation: (no reason not to connect traditional ups in series)

03:12:40 decimation: before the transformer I presume?

03:12:52 asciilifeform: aye

03:13:50 kakobrekla: ok so this newlisp is slow as fuck even if they claim otherwise.

03:14:17 asciilifeform: 'newlisp' is the 'feathercoin' of lisps

03:14:27 kakobrekla: is it?

03:14:31 kakobrekla: no clue

03:14:42 kakobrekla: had high hopes at first glance

03:14:47 asciilifeform: author started by pissing all over every single advance in the history of the language - starting with lexical scope, moving on to compiler, etc

03:15:05 asciilifeform: but, 'new' !

03:15:23 kakobrekla: other things but 'new' attracted me, but whatever.

03:15:47 kakobrekla: i found something else to waste time on

03:16:34 decimation: the 'trick' is the airgapped shunt that causes the secondary to saturate, thus causing the output voltage to remain in a narrow range. It's interesting to me that this has been known since 1940, is ideal for computers, and is apparently mostly unknown amoung computer users

03:16:58 asciilifeform: kakobrekla: vaguely relevant ancient thread: http://scottlocklin.wordpress.com/2012/09/12/not-all-programmers-alike/#comment-3674

03:17:00 assbot: Not all programmers are alike: a language rant | Locklin on science

03:17:24 asciilifeform: decimation: it is very, very well known among computer users. behind the 'iron curtain.'

03:18:13 decimation: "management" in the west would hate the buzzing

03:18:32 asciilifeform: decimation: the pill against the buzz is to lock the thing in a closet

03:18:52 decimation: yeah, wires exist for a reason I guess.

03:19:21 asciilifeform: decimation: your mains step-down transformer would also be quite audible if you were to take it off the pole and bring it in your living room.

03:20:15 decimation: I'm interested in the lightning suppression, I live in a lightning-prone area and I want to take precautions against harm. I'm not convinced by the "protect" LED in cheapass MOV devices

03:21:11 asciilifeform: CVTs are still used in places where equipment costs $maxint. i personally ordered one installed in a lab where i once worked.

03:21:32 asciilifeform: (we were getting transients from a newly installed gigantic air conditioner)

03:22:53 asciilifeform: quite a few of the units you'll find on 'ebay' are labeled 'minicomputer transformer.' so, i imagine they were shipped with pdp and vax.

03:23:20 asciilifeform: if your computer costs serious dough, a $1k power filter is small change.

03:23:33 decimation: yeah, that's the kind of device where you want to shop "ebay local"

03:23:39 asciilifeform: that or 'free ship'

03:23:59 decimation: lol I bet it costs $1 to ship from hong kong

03:25:05 asciilifeform: decimation: they're typically guaranteed for 25 years or so. get a used box with clear conscience.

03:30:46 decimation: re: dataflow: I've been browsing the academic papers on "dataflow" computers. Most of them are crazy "C machine" and "Dataflow sidecar" hybrids. Makes as much sense as putting a massive aircraft engine in a car: www.youtube.com/watch?v=wJn7LHE83cc

03:30:59 asciilifeform: incidentally: cvt is a good pill against nosy buggers who'd like to 'read' bits off your mains wiring.

03:31:33 kakobrekla: interesting asciilifeform , you really have seen it all, and too bad you didnt link me a week ago. :)

10:41:08 jurov: you're up to a call to missouri, have you seen it?

10:57:34 xmj: !up

10:57:39 xmj: well, that worked.

11:17:19 *: Naphex recommends using dedicated servers instead of virtual anything.

11:39:23 *: jurov recommends network of VPSes distributed to different suppliers

11:39:37 jurov: now if I can figure out how to sanely manage it

11:48:48 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 16650 @ 0.00079366 = 13.2144 BTC [-]

11:49:31 xmj: jurov: ansible ?

11:49:32 Naphex: why would you do anything on a hypervisor you don't control is beyond me.

11:50:38 pankkake: because it's THE CLOUD

11:50:39 Naphex: you can even skip thinking that anything stored there is secure. cause everything is available to the hypervisor and who runs it

11:50:48 xmj: Do you run a binary linux distribution like Fedora/EL6,7/Centos, Debian, Ubuntu, ...?

11:50:59 Naphex: your ram, your encryption, your keys, your storage, your IRQs

11:51:34 Naphex: i compile from source on verified sum packages

11:51:45 fluffypony: I'm moving all of my sites on to iCloud

11:51:52 fluffypony: I'll be writing them in Swift

11:51:54 Naphex: then snapshot that and use it to clone servers

11:52:01 Apocalyptic: fluffypony, sounds like a win

11:52:32 fluffypony: Apocalyptic: yeah it's really going to save me having to learn JavaScript and using Node, that seemed way too complicated

11:52:57 fluffypony: although I hear mongoDB is the best database because even CoinBase uses it

11:53:08 Naphex: "Objective-C without the baggage of C."

11:53:17 Naphex: so..

11:53:52 Naphex: http://regmedia.co.uk/2014/06/02/swift_benchmark.jpg i like it how they beat python in it trololol

11:54:57 jurov: xmj when on every machine is potentially different distro, and even roles of the machines are different?

11:55:05 Apocalyptic: and they chose on the most used crypto algorithm today... behold RC4

11:55:09 Apocalyptic: *one

11:55:25 pankkake: why would you use a different distro?

11:55:44 jurov: because they don't offer the one i want?

11:55:51 pankkake: oh, well, that sucks

11:56:02 pankkake: though yes I don't use Gentoo on VPSes

11:57:00 jurov: but it has some sweet upsides, part of coinbr infrastructure is down all the time, i can fix it later when I have the time

11:57:20 jurov: nobody noticed so far :)

11:57:23 Naphex: well, it shouldn't be down in the first place

11:58:37 jurov: well, since the part(s) running mpexagent is/are at physically hardly accessible place

11:58:51 jurov: some redundance is in order

11:59:19 jurov: are your keys physically inaccessible at secret locations, naphex?

11:59:33 Naphex: jurov: what keys?

11:59:53 jurov: coinbr needs gpg keys to trade on mpex, obv

12:00:00 jurov: and they must be online

12:00:23 penguirker: New blog post: http://www.bcoinnews.com/knc-neptune-20nm-wafers-headed-packaging/

12:00:41 jurov: so i had to hide them behind some layers... and using physical machines for all of them whould prohibitively expensive

12:00:55 xmj: jurov: as long as they have python installed, no problem

12:01:11 xmj: jurov: Ansible is pretty powerful even in heterogenous envs.

12:01:31 fluffypony: don't be sexist

12:01:37 fluffypony: even hetero servers need love

12:01:45 xmj: we use it from jenkins with different nix variants including centos and ubuntu

12:02:01 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [AM1] 2 @ 0.22001595 = 0.44 BTC [+]

12:02:13 Naphex: jurov: i have a whole cluster of servers :p secret keys run on encrypted hardware, servers run bare and have several layers of security & apis for it.

12:02:27 Naphex: cold wallets can just be multisig

12:03:34 xe4l: Morning

12:03:37 jurov: xmj i'm still pretty much in the beginning, so far it seems saltstack has more fitting primitives

12:03:45 Naphex: everything is physical, on _owned_ hardware in special datacenters.

12:05:00 jurov: good for you

12:05:10 xe4l: I dont't understand the need for special datacenters

12:05:32 Naphex: well, don't know how much of a need it is

12:05:38 jurov: =DCs protected by specnaz

12:05:42 xe4l: unless your saying private colo, as in you alone have physical access

12:05:49 xmj: jurov: saltstack is brilliant if you want a master/client setup with at least one master configuring multiple clients

12:05:51 xe4l: otherwise an EQ or whatever is equally good

12:05:55 Naphex: but having datacenters with qualified professinals and an actuall account manger. + guarded access to the datacenter

12:06:09 Naphex: also you don't want shitty datacenter support running with your hard drives

12:06:30 xmj: Naphex: I like owned hardware. Co-location and self-owning is factually less expensive. but you'll have to maintain the hardware, which can suck.

12:06:31 Naphex: so you better make sure if its serious you pick a very good datacenter, with protection and other several high profile customers

12:06:31 xe4l: can always get a cage at EQ and swap the locks out

12:06:53 Naphex: xmj: if you pick good hardware and balance rightly there is not that much maintainance

12:07:04 Naphex: i mean replace and ocassional broken drive every year or so

12:07:04 fluffypony: xmj: please don't be sexist

12:07:09 fluffypony: master/slave is bad terminology

12:07:16 xmj: Naphex: yep, but definitely more so than when you outsource that whole thing to someone.

12:07:17 Naphex: and deprecate/switch some servers

12:07:18 xe4l: The trick is to have your dynamic capacity all on the cloud and use the hardware for things requring a high degree of trust

12:07:25 xmj: Naphex: obviously depends on your biz model.

12:07:36 Naphex: i mean, if you're making dough

12:07:38 xmj: if you're interested in building infrastructure, that's different

12:07:40 Naphex: you better hire a sysadmin

12:07:43 Naphex: and some coders and a designer

12:07:47 Naphex: to maintain your shit

12:07:52 Naphex: or just quit or sell it or whatever

12:08:07 Naphex: no point in delusioning yourself forever with outsourcing, and clouds, and virtual stuff

12:08:15 xmj: Naphex: we're in 2014

12:08:31 xmj: clouds and virtual stuff _just works_ and has been for five years.

12:08:41 xmj: sysadmins are called 'devops engineers'

12:08:53 Naphex: well thats just washy washy

12:09:17 Naphex: too me it just sounds like lazy developers and lazy bussiness owners

12:09:26 Naphex: who just want to run their shit without every thinking about anything

12:09:29 Naphex: and meanwhile profiting

12:09:35 pankkake: the fact is that devops don't understand the first thing about unix

12:09:51 pankkake: my time at devops events = oh my god what am i doing here

12:10:23 Naphex: yes the webdevel generation

12:10:33 xe4l: there's a large disparity in the skillset of people with a devops

12:10:39 pankkake: it usually works fine until it doesn't

12:10:51 jurov: Naphex you do everything properly and they you get forced to surrender ssl cert to cloudflare anyway

12:11:01 jurov: upo thread of expulsion from the dc

12:11:22 Naphex: jurov: i've never heard of threat of explusion from dc, and if you get that just move. louzy dc

12:11:50 pankkake: that wasn't trolling?

12:11:51 Naphex: a dc should have proper ddos mitigations, and solutions for ddos/dos. and the worst case scenario they should cut your upstream

12:11:54 xe4l: I've never heard of that

12:11:54 Naphex: and recover after that

12:12:13 jurov: you have such dc in romania?

12:12:19 xe4l: Naphex: maybe if your dealing with bottom rate providers, why not build your own edge instead of using whatever blended they have

12:12:21 Naphex: jurov: yes

12:12:46 Naphex: i am very happy with my dc, they have everything <3

12:12:59 pankkake: but do they have clouds?

12:13:05 Naphex: nowadays yeah

12:13:13 Naphex: my AM tried to sell me some cloud :)

12:13:20 Naphex: i told him to shove it

12:13:30 Naphex: but i still doubt they sell any cloud

12:13:42 Naphex: most of their customers are banks, and all kinds of srsfolk

12:13:58 pankkake: do romanians pronounce cloud in funny ways too?

12:14:05 fluffypony: butt

12:14:09 Naphex: caca

12:14:16 Naphex: cacacloud

12:14:24 pankkake: lol

12:14:27 Naphex: i mean, hey if you want some virtualizing buy 10 servers, host some hypervisor

12:14:30 Naphex: and run them up and down

12:14:44 Naphex: host your sendmail on vps1, http vps2, whatever

12:14:56 pankkake: http://youtu.be/sU8Sge0nNJU

12:14:57 assbot: Clouds - Radical Cutting Methods - YouTube

12:15:03 fluffypony: my biggest gripe with the cloud

12:15:13 fluffypony: is that a VPS of any measurably decent performance

12:15:19 fluffypony: costs me the same as a dedi box

12:15:23 xe4l: not really

12:15:45 Naphex: i mean whats this thing about costs nowadays

12:15:48 xe4l: there are quite a few inexpensive cloud providers

12:15:49 fluffypony: xe4l: oversold resources cannot compete with dedicated resources

12:15:52 Naphex: or just everyone poor?:)

12:16:06 mircea_popescu: am i the only one that most enjoys writing dismissal letters of all the letter types there are ?

12:16:10 Naphex: 200eur/month for 32GBram sever, with 32 cores, and some fast storage

12:16:15 Naphex: run your shit forever

12:16:16 mircea_popescu: not even ransom notes are this much fun

12:16:16 xe4l: agreed, but that's not the use case of virtual servers really

12:16:23 xe4l: I wouldn

12:16:43 xe4l: run my main db on a vps, but I would run a bunch of read slaves, web servers, etc

12:16:52 xe4l: things I wanted to rapidly scale based upon demand

12:17:17 mircea_popescu: dub: im struggling with how this person is profiting from all this manip^HHHrket making << i don't see how it could be a single person, it makes no sense

12:17:22 mircea_popescu: also it's ^H^H^H

12:17:29 mircea_popescu: hi xe4l. who are you ?

12:17:33 xe4l: I doubt theres a single site in the alexa top 250 that runs purely off of cloud without basically purchasing the equiv of a physical box, eg: AWS provisioned vps

12:17:55 fluffypony: xe4l: last year I had to reindex a large database table (a necessary evil occasionally). I thought to offload it to a VPS provider, Linode or DigitalOcean or someone, so as to avoid needing to choke my db server. Needless to say, 12 hours in they shitcanned the VPS slice because of "excessive resource usage".

12:18:05 xe4l: friend of joecool, infosec/nix/network/etc person

12:18:15 fluffypony: so now if I need something like that I just fire up http://www.baremetalcloud.com and pay by the hour for a dedicated box to do the work

12:18:43 mircea_popescu: welcome.

12:18:49 xe4l: thank you

12:19:26 mircea_popescu: fluffypony, basically "the cloud" is just the new marketing gimmick, used to be "unmetered access shared servers" in 2004

12:19:34 fluffypony: yeah

12:19:38 mircea_popescu: get INFINITE BANDWIDTH for $5

12:19:40 xe4l: p.much

12:19:56 *: xe4l works for a very fast growing cloud hosting company

12:20:04 mircea_popescu: lmao

12:20:08 mircea_popescu: why in the hell.

12:20:46 mircea_popescu: *: Naphex recommends using dedicated servers instead of virtual anything. << im with him jurov. i would guess all the romanianz on the internet are with us. which means YOU ARE IN THE MINORITY. all of youse.

12:21:13 jurov: wut

12:21:48 mircea_popescu: fluffypony: I'll be writing them in Swift << and in a little while you can be known as rapedpony

12:21:56 fluffypony: hah hah

12:22:17 mircea_popescu: jurov, wut wut

12:22:39 jurov: trouble parsing that statement

12:23:03 pankkake: I've had to read it twice

12:23:09 pankkake: ovh really did have infinite bandwidth but they were apparently looking for it

12:23:44 mircea_popescu: pankkake, economics are economics. i get that the large peering networks mostly peer for free, but that "free" is a hidden cost

12:23:55 mircea_popescu: (you must offer equal capacity, which has a carrying cost on the books

12:24:13 fluffypony: Darkcoin fanbois eventually back down when cornered and admit there's no cryptographic grounding: http://www.reddit.com/r/Bitcoin/comments/2751e8/psa_dont_fall_for_darkcoins_deceiving_marketing/chxy4wv?context=5

12:24:14 assbot: Ozziecoin comments on PSA: Don't fall for Darkcoin's deceiving marketing and pump and dump. It's just a copy of CoinJoin (created by a Bitcoin core dev, for Bitcoin), and does not give perfect anonymity.

12:24:25 mircea_popescu: and even if you do make it huge, the ops will just start charging you for THEIR carry capacity, which you've now made a scarce resource through your managerial incompetence)

12:24:53 mircea_popescu: fluffypony, what i like is how "a core dev" is dropping the use of his actual name.

12:25:15 fluffypony: "Evan brings Darkcoin over 17 years of software development experience and an interest in artificial intelligence, financial markets and economics."

12:25:33 fluffypony: because when you want a cryptographically sound solution to anonymity

12:25:47 fluffypony: what you really want is a VB.net developer with an economics background

12:26:02 pankkake: that is 17 years old

12:26:10 mircea_popescu: jurov: so i had to hide them behind some layers... and using physical machines for all of them whould prohibitively expensive << actually the one secret in all of btc i;m most curious about is the complete schematics of the rat's nest jurov no doubt built.

12:48:54 mircea_popescu: xmj, im sorry ?

12:48:58 xmj: mircea_popescu: if you do a startup, with an idea in mind -- highlevel one -- and let yourself get distracted by hardware/network issues right in the beginning

12:49:15 xmj: mircea_popescu: then that's just you doing it very very wrong as those shouldn't be part of your business in the beginning.

12:49:25 xmj: s/business/core business/

12:49:47 jurov: xmj, you should praise github then

12:50:03 mircea_popescu: the universe where a heroic twentysomething starts leinterwebs bizniss is a very interesting fictional metaverse. we revel in retelling the stories of adventure and glory much like some women enjoy watching telenovellas.

12:50:06 xe4l: github actually has a decent setup these days

12:50:20 mircea_popescu: but meanwhile, business is made by businessmen not by aspi[rational] kids

12:50:23 Naphex: xmj: hey distracted, since when do you do high level apps, and not think about the hardware they are running or the performance you want to get out of it

12:50:34 Naphex: picking hardware to run your shit should be one of the first steps

12:50:40 jurov: with decent 0days...just that anyone can commit anything

12:50:40 Naphex: and if you can't do it, hire someone who can

12:50:57 *: xe4l works with the people that previously worked at github

12:51:11 mircea_popescu: xe4l, does that mean all the women or what ?

12:51:58 xmj: Naphex: no, thoughts like that right in the beginning are expensive, spin up two-three VPS until you have a customer base to warrant and pay for those thoughts.

12:55:10 Naphex: lean startup strategy == fail startup strategy?

12:55:53 xe4l: the startup strategy I'm the most fond of at this point is to get the MVP out the door asap so your customers can begin to use your product

12:56:03 xmj: exactly

12:56:09 Naphex: see, now it takes 2 days

12:56:12 Naphex: to buy some servers

12:56:14 Naphex: and install em

12:56:23 xmj: and thinking about low-level crap like hardware and network infrastructure just is not conducive to your MVP.

12:56:32 xe4l: sadly, as much as is I love building the perfect thing on the first go, it's not terribly pheasable unless it's a b2b business

12:56:35 mircea_popescu: xe4l, what's the rush anyway.

12:56:41 xmj: exactly

12:56:44 xe4l: b2c demands you begin to get feedback from your customers

12:56:57 xe4l: so you can start tuning the product

12:56:59 mircea_popescu: or to put it in another perpsective, if you're in any hurry either your product isn't in a good enough market or your financial structure is shit.

12:57:02 Naphex: what have this people been brain washed to do

12:57:03 mircea_popescu: fix both first.

12:57:05 xmj: I'm not talking about business services.

12:57:33 xmj: mircea_popescu: Bootstrapped lean startups have next to no financial structure.

14:10:09 fluffypony: ok so let me tell you about my new startup: it's going to be a one-click backup service called iWalletBackup. It will let you use Siri via raise-to-talk to back all your wallets up to iCloud. It's being written in Swift and will use mongoDB as a backend. It can scale nearly instantly because it will just fire up new AWS instances on-demand. Our development methodology is fail-fast-fail-often, where we'll write an iteration, and then once that

14:10:09 fluffypony: code has failed in production we'll shut the startup down, start a new one, buy the old one out, and then repeat. We call this Multi Startup Synergistic Prefailure, and it's inspired by the work of Tsukino Usagi.

14:19:34 bitcoinpete: mike_c: didn't know that about altcoin… i don't know why i thought it was a costlier project

14:19:59 fluffypony: I think it's a great idea - your private key is made from your fingerprint. That way if you don't put your finger down *just* right you get a whole new privkey and can't access the old one till you figure out how you put your finger down previously

14:20:27 mike_c: cost != value :)

14:25:49 bitcoinpete: mike_c: of course, you're right :)

14:26:15 bitcoinpete: fluffypony: or you could have 10 privkeys, one per finger. max!

14:26:26 fluffypony: great idea!

14:26:43 bitcoinpete: this will cut down on blockchain bloat

14:26:55 bitcoinpete: and make it so that iphones can carry the full blockchain

14:27:43 fluffypony: well the other nice thing is the harder it is for people to retrieve their privkeys, the more likely they are to be lost forever

14:27:55 fluffypony: which increases the value of Bitcoin by reducing the supply

14:28:11 fluffypony: so really they'd only be doing themselves a favour

16:37:36 princessnell: pankkake there's a whole cottage industry of bitcoin lady #brands

16:38:19 nubbins`: i still think calling yourself "the bitcoin wife" is incredibly self-deprecating

16:38:21 nubbins`: but that's just me

16:38:23 chetty: and some of us (bitcoin women) are actually doing stuff even

16:38:53 nubbins`: ^

16:39:43 jurov: inb4 bitcoin grandma

16:39:58 danielpbarron: part of my argument comes from my belief in The Bible which clearly says that all women should submit to a man (whether their father or their husband) and they should only do something (like coding, for example) if their man ordered them to do so; it's not a very responsible man that delegates his programming needs to a woman (who is probably better suited for things like child-rearing (although exceptions may apply))

16:40:59 princessnell: i used to think to myself "well, these women are at least promoting the tech in a way that other women can understand." but they're only thinking of it as a consumption tool, which is worse than doing nothing at all.

22:35:59 asciilifeform: jurov: i've a small collection of various cheapo 'arm' boards, just like everyone. the 'pi' collects dust. did recently get openbsd running on another one (beagle?) recently.

22:36:36 Mats_cd03: cool

22:37:53 asciilifeform: 'real' microcontrollers are far more interesting. the proliferation of the cheap arm boards is really because today's hobbyists piss their pants at the thought of learning asm

22:38:12 jurov: i'm using pi just as an illustration that people you may want to get interested in lisp start by getting emotionally hooked onto coding, regardless of what's available being utter crap

22:38:16 asciilifeform: (a 'traditional' micro has a few kb of ram)

22:38:56 jurov: and then continue on the trajectory, never even getting to know there's something better

22:40:29 asciilifeform: jurov: clisp builds on arm. but sbcl doesn't (the latter has no interpreter mode, it has a high quality optimizing - real time - compiler on x86 and a few other archs.)

22:41:57 asciilifeform: lisp on a microcontroller that isn't optimized for high-level languages (a la the greenarrays forth chip) isn't much fun. it's like going back to the mid-80s, when microcomputer owners justifiably scoffed at 'slow' languages

22:42:11 jurov: python isn't either

22:42:41 asciilifeform: the python linked earlier (diametric?) isn't a proper python, where the interpreter is available at run time, but, as i understand, a simple batch-mode compiler.

22:42:53 asciilifeform: (anyone who read the entire manual, please correct me if i am mistaken)

22:43:12 jurov: idk, it boasts "REPL in 2K RAM"

22:44:02 jurov: but this discussion is getting derailed again anyway

22:56:28 dub: similar(ly stupid) ideas about spending them after fiat collapses as metals probably, libertardation

23:10:45 asciilifeform: a successfully 'mined' brainwallet is... a failed iq test.

23:12:18 BingoBoingo: And then there's also the problem of "place can have problems too"

23:13:38 asciilifeform: if herr torquemada is working on you, your wallet is lost, regardless of what kind (only real countermeasure is cyanide tooth or the like.)

23:16:23 BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Tooth must be dangerously fragile though, so one can have a standoff end with a swift movement of the tongue.

23:16:47 asciilifeform: actually, one possible technological countermeasure is: to carry around some gizmo that will transmit a transaction moving your coin to a trusted confederate, when the pin is pulled.

23:17:07 asciilifeform: easier said than done, though.

23:19:37 asciilifeform: (if you actually want to do this: have multiple allies, shamir-split a key, then set 'dead man switch' that broadcasts the magic tx if you fail to reset it for x days, etc)

23:31:52 BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Reasonable option seems to be dead man switch sends the coins to Mugabe

23:32:10 asciilifeform: the 'only winning move,' of course, is 'not to play' - reducing your chances of ending up in that position in the first place, through convincing deterrent (or quick legs!)

23:41:32 jurov: or slipping up home in the bathroom

23:42:20 BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: I think at that point you have to play the Hannibal card and try purchasing organs yourself.

23:42:43 BingoBoingo: I'm also rather sure my organs aren't the sort to fetch top dollar

23:42:55 asciilifeform: deterrence weapon naturally doesn't make you immortal - the best possible use of it is to cool the enthusiasm of folks who'd like to hasten the inevitable.

23:45:10 BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: There was this Simpsons episode back in the day where it was revealed the elderly hero had the gift of immortality to the sheer number of terminal diseases he had forming a sort of homeostasis sustaining him.

23:45:57 asciilifeform: my organs aren't the sort to fetch top dollar << the 'i own just the shirt on my back' defense worked pretty well historically. if the enemy finds it convincing.

23:48:07 asciilifeform: however, the reason why it is customary to sit a captured wretch on an anthill, or the like, without first inquiring about his assets, is that in such a situation the definition of 'assets' expands to everything the victim could potentially beg/borrow/steal

23:51:07 asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: in the textbook 'rectothermal cryptoanalysis' of '90s russia, the purpose of the soldering iron was typically to help the 'patient'... 'remember' not only the locations of hidden goodies, but also places where he might yet be able to borrow/steal.

23:52:40 BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Assuming they don't want library books... Probably going to get drafted as a drug mule.

23:53:30 asciilifeform: i'd assume that a 'mule' gets an (unarmed) 'helper,' who ensures that he can't cough up the payload ahead of schedule.
