00:05:02 asciilifeform: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=02-07-2015#1184640 << a bit of a fundamental misconception here. 'emacs' in particular is ~not~ a 'text editor', but a kind of poor man's lisp machine. and is used as such by many folks

00:05:02 assbot: Logged on 02-07-2015 22:30:34; mircea_popescu: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=02-07-2015#1184009 << i wouldn't issue such a command. why wouldn't your driver cook at your command ? because if you live like that, the only guarantee is that you'll be overrun with assorted vermin.

00:06:07 trinque: asciilifeform: that was actually my reaction when learning of genera and other such systems

00:06:23 trinque: "holy shit, stallman was trying to cram a version of this environment into unix"

00:06:36 asciilifeform: trinque: emacs, you might be surprised to learn, predates rms

00:06:57 trinque: in my historical wanderings, I learned of zmacs

00:07:39 trinque: I guess there's a whole lineage of things which ended up being called emacs

00:07:59 trinque: asciilifeform: the thought actually was... "so emacs is a sort of masamune... lol!"

00:08:13 trinque: no offense to mr laddel

00:08:23 asciilifeform: trinque: mno. because it doesn't (except in the most minimal sense) try to handle unixisms ~from within~

00:08:27 asciilifeform: the difference is important

00:08:30 trinque: ah

00:08:53 trinque: well, there are plenty of wads o' elisp that try to do that very thing

00:08:57 trinque: not that I use any of them

00:09:11 asciilifeform: elisp, incidentally, is a world-class turd

00:16:43 asciilifeform: trinque: thing is, 'lispy' interpreters written in a hurry by students end up being all quite alike

01:25:45 shinohai: but your bitcoind shall decimate correct asciilifeform

01:25:55 asciilifeform: ..?

01:26:23 asciilifeform: shinohai: i must point out that it isn't 'mine', but therealbitcon's (in the face of ben_vulpes and mod6)

01:26:24 shinohai: it must make XT a distant memory

01:26:37 shinohai: fair enuf

01:26:38 asciilifeform: i just made a couplea patches

01:27:01 shinohai: *overall foundation*

01:27:04 asciilifeform: (most of which are, at present time, considered highly experimental and will not be making it into a release any time soon)

01:27:44 shinohai: is there a node list i should consider?

01:27:53 asciilifeform: shinohai: mircea_popescu has one up

01:28:04 asciilifeform:

01:28:19 asciilifeform: it is running his own personal, unpublished port of bitcoind

01:28:26 shinohai: so -connect flag is sufficient?

01:28:26 asciilifeform: since, i think, 2011

01:28:28 asciilifeform: aha

01:28:48 *: shinohai ^ did not know that

01:29:19 asciilifeform: shinohai: my understanding is that mircea_popescu, with the help of trusted phriendz unknown to us, did something quite like therealbitcoin, early on

01:30:49 asciilifeform: for the specific purpose of running mpex

01:31:17 shinohai: interesting.

01:31:54 shinohai: Such rich and mysterious history

01:34:04 assbot: Logged on 24-06-2015 02:59:50; mircea_popescu: i dun think i ever said anything about that.

01:34:33 asciilifeform: all i can personally say about this is that it serves up (big fat surprise!) apparently correct blocks

01:34:52 asciilifeform: which is what we, in particular, care about, for this purpose.

01:35:48 asciilifeform: and that it uses the traditional blkxxxx format to keep said blocks in: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com//?date=30-06-2015#1182019

01:37:46 asciilifeform: and, possibly, that he did the Right Thing and sawed off wallet into a separate mechanism: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=23-10-2014#890284

01:37:46 assbot: Logged on 23-10-2014 05:07:32; mircea_popescu: <asciilifeform> connected with serial cable << this from reading up on old mpex material ?

01:37:50 asciilifeform: and that's pretty much it

01:38:17 asciilifeform: if mircea_popescu ever feels like saying any more on the subject, he can.

01:38:23 asciilifeform: other than that, 'take it or leave it'

01:38:31 decimation: asciilifeform: what is electrum other than 'wallet split from node'?

01:38:56 *: asciilifeform can't comment re: 'electrum', never used

01:39:18 asciilifeform: does it know how to communicate over a serial cable with a full node ?

01:39:38 asciilifeform: or does it open ordinary sockets and expect a tcp stack

01:40:22 shinohai: mircea_popescu has already provided an ample amount of reading between logs and fraudsters xD

01:40:31 *: asciilifeform knows that one can 'theoretically' be turned into the other, but is not so much interested in the particulars as in the overall flavour of the design, as to whether it rejected networking to begin with

01:40:39 decimation: it uses a tcp connection with a special block server I think

01:40:45 asciilifeform: ugh

01:40:49 asciilifeform: needs a custom bitcoind ?

01:40:51 asciilifeform: wtf is the point

01:41:03 decimation: yeah I think so, not sure

01:41:45 decimation: https://github.com/spesmilo/electrum-server < "The server requires bitcoind, leveldb and plyvel"

01:41:47 assbot: spesmilo/electrum-server · GitHub ... ( http://bit.ly/1LLtISX )

01:41:53 asciilifeform: ick

01:41:54 decimation: apparently it gloms onto rpc port

01:41:57 asciilifeform: no thx

01:42:36 decimation: what would an 'electrum replacement' need?

01:42:48 asciilifeform: what is the purpose of said replacement ?

01:43:00 decimation: okay, you have serial line connected to bitcoind

01:43:19 asciilifeform: elementary

01:43:21 decimation: how do I find txns for accounting in my wallet

01:43:27 decimation: and send txns

01:43:27 asciilifeform: thing on the other side needs to know how to sign a tx

01:43:33 decimation: aye

01:43:44 asciilifeform: the bitcoind, in turn, needs to know how to 1) crap out a proper tx for it to sign 2) eat the result

01:44:10 decimation: account belongs on the public side?

01:44:21 asciilifeform: account ?

01:44:28 asciilifeform: public ?

01:44:33 decimation: essentially, querying the blockchain for my txns

01:44:45 shinohai: I can't get electrum right for shit. I did a test tx using pywallet to import a privkey

01:45:22 asciilifeform: decimation: neither side, properly speaking, ought to be 'public'

01:45:31 decimation: this goes to the ancient thread about what bitcoind should do

01:45:34 asciilifeform: the full node is '-connect'ed to a public-facing node, yes

01:45:43 decimation: so need to query for my txns

01:45:55 asciilifeform: query the cutout (said full node)

01:46:04 decimation: across serial cable?

01:46:07 asciilifeform: aha

01:46:22 decimation: okay, well that's essentially what electrum server does I guess

01:46:34 decimation: except this feature could be integrated into bitcoind

01:46:40 asciilifeform: except i'm not sure why this requires GBytes of rubbish

01:46:42 asciilifeform: and weird dependencies

01:46:45 asciilifeform: aha

01:46:47 decimation: well, yeah

01:51:01 decimation: http://www.bbc.com/news/health-33362472 < "She told the BBC that "Children with autism didn't show this modulation at all - they took the same sniff for the smell of shampoo as they did for rotten fish." "They also showed that the more severe the symptoms of autism the longer the children inhaled the unpleasant smells. "

01:51:30 asciilifeform: 'Part of the functionality of our site is that we have to give out decrypted server seeds (to assure users no bet manipulation has occurred) and put a new random seed in place, essentially trashing the old revealed seed. Hufflepuff found a way to ?confuse? our server, and made it give out a decrypted server seed that was also an active seed. This was done by sending it more requests than it could handle in a small time per

01:51:30 asciilifeform: iod, think hundreds of requests in under a second. The result of this is that he knew all the information required to corroborate the outcomes of his bets. He knew whether if he would win or lose, and could wager accordingly.'

01:52:58 decimation: lol why do they need to give seed

01:53:11 asciilifeform: same reason 'satoshi dice' did ?

01:53:27 asciilifeform: the whole 'provably fair' thing

01:53:29 decimation: why not build physical source of entropy

01:53:56 asciilifeform: because go & prove that it is a physical whatever, rather than a house-always-wins source

01:54:12 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 20350 @ 0.00052155 = 10.6135 BTC [+]

01:54:12 asciilifeform: same reason vegas uses prng (supplied, incidentally, by usg)

01:54:30 decimation: if house always wins, people will realized and move on

01:55:25 *: asciilifeform doesn't care for either kind of dice game, cannot comment re: the appeal of 'provable' ones

01:56:10 asciilifeform: one obvious observation, however, is that 'house' can never prove that it had not shared its seeds with a shill

01:56:21 decimation: yeah, me neither, but sending the server seed seems like you are putting your balls on the chopping block

01:56:25 asciilifeform: whose only purpose is to be one of the 'provably fair' winners that day

01:56:37 decimation: heh good point

01:57:15 asciilifeform: iirc the satoshidice inventor offered a reward to anyone who might devise a means whereby he can prove that he doesn't do this

01:57:19 asciilifeform: it was never claimed

01:57:45 asciilifeform: now, it is not physically impossible to solve this problem

01:58:01 asciilifeform: (see, for example, the 'millionaire protocol')

01:58:08 asciilifeform: but afaik this was never pursued by anyone.

01:58:17 decimation: I would think it would require examining the outcome of every player's bet

02:00:03 asciilifeform: decimation: that is only needed when one is verifying the 'fair' bit

02:07:55 decimation: how much worse is docker?

02:08:05 asciilifeform: (not to be confused with the last such, which relied on a flawed emulation of pc floppy card. this one uses nic.)

02:08:19 asciilifeform: decimation: not comparable

02:08:26 asciilifeform: afaik

02:08:30 decimation: asciilifeform: did you see the cache telegraphy escape?

02:08:38 asciilifeform: decimation: that's not an escaper

02:08:44 asciilifeform: it's a known backchannel, yes

02:08:49 asciilifeform: but not an arbitrary code exec thing

02:08:53 decimation: aye

02:16:08 trinque: decimation: docker's a piece of shit for its own reasons

02:17:44 trinque: yet another "lets try to layer tape upon the turd and hope that solves the underlying derp of the system"

02:19:10 trinque: whereas xen is a hypervisor, docker uses the linux containers thing, which effectively gives you multiple userspaces

02:19:38 trinque: the docker daemon itself is this vast wad o' golang that runs as root

02:19:41 gribble: The operation succeeded.

02:19:50 decimation: people have emphasized docker's security benefits

02:20:24 asciilifeform: gotta love the 's333k000r1ty benefitz' of running a blob of hipsterystrange as root

02:20:27 trinque: assuming the hardware, kernel, distro, docker, distro, and your proggy are perfect, sure!

02:21:42 decimation: asciilifeform: maybe you can use systemd to boot it

02:22:02 trinque: I would expect (as admittedly a casual in the kernel space) to find the same kinds of break-out flaws in docker and linux containers as are found all the time in xen

02:22:29 trinque: and also, docker sets up and manages its own fancy virtual network between your containers

02:22:33 trinque: so probably loads to be done to that thing too

02:23:17 shinohai: i use docker on hashbang, but it is like a Rube Goldberg cartoon

02:23:49 trinque: shinohai: yeah I used it on deedbot to make a final judgment

02:23:54 trinque: fuckinthingsucks.gif

02:23:57 decimation: does docker actually emulate a hardware nic like qemu

02:25:31 shinohai: For instance, this may have been a forerunner of BTCXT http://notquant.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/06/rube.gif

02:25:33 assbot: ... ( http://bit.ly/1ITuS8z )

13:56:45 *: ben_vulpes does not see the problem with hashing values queried directly out of the db

13:56:48 decimation: or using it to feed another tool, like has been accomplished

13:57:04 decimation: mongo is the hotness these days

13:57:07 ben_vulpes: if you're storing as the appropriate ints, floats, doubles, strings etc

13:57:22 ben_vulpes: you can even derp the raw binary into pg if you're so inclined

13:57:45 ben_vulpes: recede

13:58:01 decimation: yeah, there are situations where 'nosql' is appropriate, but plenty of situations where you want structured queries too

13:58:27 ben_vulpes: no man

13:58:47 ben_vulpes: i've yet to see the real world problem that a nosql db was actually the right solution to that wasn't actually a cacheing/cdn problem

13:58:58 decimation: heh

13:59:06 ben_vulpes: (and even that can be handled by mother postgres at rather high efficiencies these days)

13:59:15 decimation: the only situation I can imagine is if you have a gigantic pile of disorganized data, that probably has a structure

13:59:28 decimation: nosql can be used to sort through your shit into a proper db

13:59:49 decimation: or if you are trying to be google

14:00:33 ben_vulpes: dude if it has a hint of structure it belongs in a relational db

14:01:01 ben_vulpes: otherwise you're going to start running the kind of braindamaged queries your 'nosql' layer support and then glomming it all together into something representing a query in application code

14:01:14 decimation: well, yeah that's the real-world situation.

14:01:37 ben_vulpes: much like any c project eventually grows a miserable half-assed implementation of an eighth of common lisp any nosql project eventually tries to implement relational alggebra

14:01:56 decimation: I'm suggesting an intermediate step where you query your nosql db properly and place the results into a structured relational db

14:02:27 decimation: but yeah I bet most people using 'nosql' just want caches

14:02:42 ben_vulpes: and because none of them were designed for that in the first place because a) it's hard and b) fucking retards write nosql stores for hackernooz points the algebraic layer turns out to never actually work. or it locks everything up while running queries that a real db would plan handle like a boss

18:44:07 mircea_popescu: anyway i'll feel a lot better about this world and my life once this has been actually reviewed by third parties. ie , you.

18:45:12 ascii_field: mircea_popescu: at present, i doubt that we'll turn up any oddities in the blocks per se

18:45:31 mircea_popescu: right. i don't think so either.

18:46:50 ascii_field: what i did learn is that mapBlockIndex grows linearly (300 bt) for every block ever seen.

18:47:07 ascii_field: that that in order to change this, it'd have to live on disk

18:47:12 ascii_field: (naturally, cached)

18:47:57 mod6: !up ascii_field

18:48:06 mod6: shinohai: ok let's work through it

18:48:39 mats: dignork: i'm looking forward to a test drive

18:48:48 shinohai: @ mod6 I think I should start with a bare build. the other one is fine, son't want to touch it xD

18:48:53 shinohai: *don't

18:49:20 mircea_popescu: ascii_field in practice this may not be a problem. the gavincoin insanities aside, growing by 300 bytes every ten minutes may well be sustainable indefinitely into the future.

18:49:42 mircea_popescu: i suspek computing is moving towards joint ram/disk anyway.

18:50:28 mod6: yeah, that's what i was saying before: leave your v0.5.3.1-RELEASE as-is. Then setup a new environment to give the "stator" build a try -- is pre-patched, so should be able to compile and run, or if your slightly more daring, just run the included pre-compiled (by alf) binary (ensure to check sigs first!)

18:51:36 shinohai: kk but the whole reason I want to do this is so I can try the new patches by ascii_field, the blockdump

18:52:09 mod6: sure, ok. so what we'll need to do (and even I haven't tried patching those in myself yet) is to extract the stator, then apply the patches.

18:52:14 mats: that'll be interesting when the dichotomy vanishes. linux has been adding support for persistent memory afaik

18:52:21 mats: 'pramfs' looked furthest along when i last checked

18:52:28 mod6: lemme give it a shot on my end first, see what happens so I can give you valid help

18:52:33 mod6: just a minute here.

18:52:53 mats: nothing merged so far though

18:53:07 trinque: jurov: could the btc-dev mailing list send mail via tls? requiring that on my mailserver's end has drastically cut down on spam, but I think that's causing me to miss mailing list messages

18:53:13 trinque: it it's too much trouble, don't worry about it

18:53:40 trinque: for some odd reason spam botnets don't seem to bother at all with tls being required

18:53:46 trinque: maybe a performance thing

18:54:32 trinque: I went from 100s of spamz a day to 0 with this one weird trick.

18:54:52 punkman: mod6, let me know if you want me to rebase/resubmit cpuminer-snip or guicruft-snip before the next release

18:56:15 trinque: shinohai: isn't the idea that you want your pool as big as possible?

(must read emails to figure out the deps, OR you can just build the stator which includes all of alf's patches with exception of dumpblock & eatblock), those must be patched post extraction of the stator tarball -- of which im actually testing now.

19:31:04 *: trinque puts the laptop in the freezer while it builds boost

19:31:05 mod6: which, btw, they hvae patched in just fine... building the whole thing now.

19:31:20 mod6: (with openssl/bdb/boost)

19:31:51 mod6: I'm creating a log of this, and will post for everyone to look at once complete.

19:33:02 *: shinohai thanks mod6 for the dedication

19:33:13 mod6: yw :]

19:33:46 mod6: heh, this boost compile is taking a while, because i'm also syncing at the same time haha

19:34:12 shinohai: I'm almost @ block 200000

19:34:27 mod6: good deal!

19:35:22 shinohai: Then when I get this new build up, I can sync up to the correct nodes, and .torrent dat chain.

19:35:32 phf: mod6: i don't necessarily have problems, i have a bitcoind with all the patches up to eatblock (haven't looked at stator yet, but then i'm building with enemy tools). the way i assembled patches is by reading through web archive and saving/verifying each patch as i saw it

19:35:54 mod6: ahhh

19:36:11 mod6: can you point me to the web-archive you're using? just curious.

19:36:51 phf: the process was needlessly complicated since my mail client lets me do a bunch of those steps (patching, gpg verifying, etc) with a single key, so if i had an mbox, i could just import it, and then use a more familiar interface

19:37:20 phf: mod6: http://therealbitcoin.org/ml/btc-dev/2014-October/thread.html etc.

19:37:24 mod6: ahh. im not sure i remember mbox. and yeah, the whole thing is a bit... unwieldly

19:38:16 mod6: so wait, you're just going through each email and pulling out patches? or are you on that part of jurov's website with the signed patches?

19:39:20 phf: mod6: no no each email. i thought that was the whole point of ascii's approach, i.e. linux kernel style "read email, think, apply the patch"

19:40:36 mod6: plus, create a How-To guide. Both of which need updating for the flurry of recent patches that have been submitted. Just haven't had a chance yet.

19:43:30 funkenstein_: "southern pride" spamming qntra in an effort to discredit the site methinks

19:44:53 phf: mod6: well, lets say you have something like mutt open with the current email. it's pretty easy to write a script that takes current email and feeds it to an external script, that splits out patch, verifies it with the provided sig, and then applies it to the codebase (or pushes it into some queue of patches as a case may be). i.e. you read the email, push "p" to do everything for you, and then move on to the next email

19:45:22 mod6: ok, i like mutt :]

19:45:46 mod6: are you asking me to write an email client script?

19:47:02 mod6: basically, instead of me making a whole bunch of different one-off scripts for peoples seperate clients and whatever stack they've got, I just create one script that will patch in & verify all the scripts at once. usually after I've tried and tested them all myself, peronsally.

19:47:44 mod6: But I've only started scratching the surface with alf's latest, so this hasn't been done yet. All of these are still in my "Highly Experemental" category. AKA: use at your own risk.

19:47:49 phf: mod6: no, i'm asking you to provide an archive of raw messages as they were received and stored by mailman. something like this http://therealbitcoin.org/ml/btc-dev/2014-October.txt, but withtout attachments split into separate files

19:48:03 mod6: But as I get through more of these and test more of these, I'll put something together to make this process easier.

20:20:48 trinque: yar, rebuilding now

20:20:52 mod6: ascii_field: i did have a problem with it a number of days ago when I first tried it, but it was just an environment related issue. this build, I literally just did it, worked fine.

20:21:00 mod6: ah ok

20:21:20 trinque: I wanna do some gcov work this weekend

20:21:32 mod6: and trinque, did you hvae that -fPIC issue on gentoo with uClibC? that's the same error I was talking about all last month and in the SoBA

20:21:42 trinque: yeah but this is glibc

20:21:45 trinque: my lappy

20:21:47 mod6: ah hmm

20:25:19 mod6: so phf brings to light a good point, reading through the email list, especially if you haven't read the b-a logs from oct-14 on is probably more than a bit hard to follow. ascii_field brings up a good point about having a 'family tree'

20:26:29 mod6: there are a number of different directions these emails go in; patching for v0.5.3.1, pogotronic, gentoo, etc, etc. so I'll try my best to make this apparent when I write up a patch list, etc.

20:26:44 mod6: i'm not sure what to do about this as far as the email list is concerened, yet.

20:26:48 ascii_field: mod6: i kinda assumed you and ben_vulpes would roll the patch sequence docs into releases

20:27:05 ascii_field: (iirc this was the case in 5.3.1 actually)

20:27:24 mod6: yah. we would certainly put all the patches applied to a specific baseline into RELEASE_NOTES.txt as it was for v0.5.3.1

20:27:57 jurov: phf, if you can make better patchlist, are you willing to contribute your script?

20:28:01 shinohai: That would be the easiest, releases

20:28:31 mod6: but pre-milestone release, it does get hard to follow. and since I do believe it'll still be some time before we get the next milestone cut, I should prepare some sort of document so individuals can help test. (we very much appreciate the enthusiasm and the help!)

20:29:16 shinohai: I have little better that piques the imagination

20:30:38 mod6: anyway, we'll get there.

20:30:55 mod6: a wise man told me once: life is short and art is long.

20:33:51 phf: i was actually taking a harder position, if somebody wants to follow along they should read the mailing list from the beginning, and having it all accessible in one place for offline reading helps

20:34:41 mod6: and really, if you wanna follow along, it helps to have the historical timeline 'in head' as well by reading the logs since last October.

21:12:06 mircea_popescu: decimation i am broadly unconvinced the concept of ethnicity makes any sense in africa.

21:12:22 mircea_popescu: the french just started using it cca 1800 as if, and nobody really discussed the matter.

21:12:23 mats: i speak mandarin influently. my cantonese is pretty good, though.

21:12:25 decimation: as in, doesn't exist?

21:12:34 mircea_popescu: as in, is not meaningful.

21:12:44 mats: this makes literacy... tricky

21:14:01 mircea_popescu: decimation gotta bear in mind that "ethnicity" is not a thing, just a word we use for the thing. it's a map. that a map is flat and a place is round does not mean the round place has no geography

21:15:13 decimation: well, my point is that obama is from the Luo people

21:16:01 *: mircea_popescu never bothered with it, but is this luo people an internal or an external identity ?

21:16:35 decimation: my understanding is internal https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Luo_people_of_Kenya_and_Tanzania

21:16:36 assbot: Luo people of Kenya and Tanzania - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia ... ( http://bit.ly/1TaA8fm )

21:16:49 mircea_popescu: ie, is it equivalent to saying "one of the terrorist people" or to "one of the lordship" ?

21:17:52 decimation: they have their own language

Outside Luoland, the Luo comprise a significant fraction of East Africa's intellectual and skilled labour force in various professions. Others members work in eastern Africa as tenant fishermen, small scale farmers, and urban workers."

21:18:44 mircea_popescu: impossible to discern how much is a case of "the missionary used a word to best describe what he saw" and "we have created a structure through normal function". anyway, minor point.

21:18:47 mircea_popescu: like all of africa.

21:21:00 mircea_popescu: ascii_field very much would be.

21:21:08 shinohai: @ mircea_popescu yes your node is my sole connection.

21:21:31 shinohai: I wanted clean db

21:21:43 mircea_popescu: i think i said this before, but in any case bears repeating insistently : larger blocks are a complex discussion that will involve many and numerous benchmarking. it's not the simple matter idiots make it out.

21:22:02 mircea_popescu: shinohai aha cool then. no spurts or weird disconnects or anything ?

21:22:03 *: ascii_field believes that we already have pretty large blocks

21:22:08 decimation: aye

21:22:18 decimation: go to blockchain.info and watch the waterfall of txns

21:22:40 mircea_popescu: ascii_field get a load of this : three days of random, odd internet behaviour, discussed here publicly, which then went away by itself. i did nothing to the server, i asssume neither did you.

21:22:42 mircea_popescu: what is this magic /

21:22:51 shinohai: No, mircea_popescu it has actually been faster than when I previously synced, less memory footprint ramwise

21:22:52 mircea_popescu: i would expect a stuttering engine to go on stuttering until discarded.

21:23:00 kakobrekla: the truth be this or that, if the majority of miners takes up big blocks pogos and company is phucked

21:23:02 decimation: maybe it was the work of the volunteer diggers in san francisco

21:23:23 mircea_popescu: kakobrekla i welcome the verification of this theory in the field.

21:23:29 decimation: kakobrekla: that's why the reference implementation ought to be written to appeal to miners

21:23:41 kakobrekla: hah

21:23:52 mats: yes, a model with 8mb and 20mb blocks would be interesting

21:23:57 mircea_popescu: i imagine so would you : a bankrupt field of miners best chance to buy cheap mining rigs for a long time

21:24:37 mircea_popescu: but in any case : money talks. not "power rangers" and not the 0.3% ROI miners. and if moneys says fuck you everyone goes home and tries something else for next year's costume party.

21:24:54 decimation: kakobrekla: it's not as stupid as it sounds

21:25:03 decimation: what miners want to deal with bitcoind correctness

21:25:04 shinohai: What amazes me is it has synced this far in < 1 day

21:25:19 mircea_popescu: shinohai why should it amaze you ?

21:25:40 shinohai: It amazes me because it took 4-5 days before

21:25:49 kakobrekla: but 'miners' are zombies, will eat whatever comes their way and cant count on them thinking about anything

21:25:50 punkman: ascii_field, does this sequence look right? >> + orphanage nuke + tx-orphanage + dnsseed_snipsnip + zap_hardcoded_seeds + zap_showmyip + dns thermonuke + irc nuke

21:26:04 mircea_popescu: kakobrekla that's fine. they also have to make money somehow.

21:26:10 decimation: kakobrekla: exactly, which is why they would use whatever other people say is good

21:26:14 mircea_popescu: and that somehow is by selling what they mine.

21:26:25 mircea_popescu: so yes, zombies. just, make sure you identify the necromancer driving them correctly

21:26:26 kakobrekla: they are getting spammed with 'bitcoin upgrades' as we speak

21:26:33 mircea_popescu: sure.

21:26:36 kakobrekla: my guess is most wont have a second thought.

21:26:46 decimation: exactly, so if they have brains this will wake them up to 'wtf is going on with bitcoind'

21:26:52 mircea_popescu: and the same people will be selling the farm three to six months down the road.

21:27:13 decimation: those withouth brains will be trying to sell used asics

21:29:14 mircea_popescu: the mass slaughter of a large contingent of people who act as if "doing what everyone else does is safe", and who lose millions at it is the best thing that can happen.

21:29:28 kakobrekla: i cant have blockchain dead for a month

21:29:33 mircea_popescu: a shining moment of "buying ibm gets you killed" is more valuable than asia.

21:31:34 decimation: kakobrekla: what do you mean about 'having blockchain dead'

21:33:39 kakobrekla: having a chain with a gazillion difficulty and no to little miners on it

21:34:06 decimation: I find the probability of that happening to be very low

21:35:10 kakobrekla: the switch happens when there is 90% of miners on the new chain (determined by checking last n blocks rolling window)

21:35:23 kakobrekla: when this happens there already is such condition as i described give or take

21:35:44 kakobrekla: and the even bringing that percentage even higher as some give up.

21:41:01 mod6: except this is with glibc huh

21:42:19 trinque: suggests it's maybe a matter of the hardened toolchain eh?

21:42:26 trinque: rather than which libc

21:43:22 mircea_popescu: kakobrekla a loss of 90% mining power relates to blocks taking a little over an hour, not a month.

21:43:38 mircea_popescu: in other words, they can go hang, won't be noticed, won't be missed.

21:43:46 mircea_popescu: this is why miners are NOT actually seated at the table.

21:43:53 mod6: <+trinque> suggests it's maybe a matter of the hardened toolchain eh? << yeah, i think this is a clue

21:44:02 mircea_popescu: their job begins and ends with rejecting bad blocks. they are in no way involved in deciding what that means.

21:44:09 mircea_popescu: exactly as it should be, incidentally.

21:45:23 kakobrekla: 90% < thats just the breaking point. once they figure out they have no wehre to send those coins short of mpex, those will be gone too.

21:45:53 mircea_popescu: except vice-versa.

21:46:15 kakobrekla: ah right the 1mb fits , forgot that.

21:46:47 kakobrekla: i still see problems down the road.

21:46:47 mod6: trinque: sometime this month I'll try to pay with 'default/linux/uclibc/amd64' instead.

21:46:47 mircea_popescu: looky here : a) mpex makes more money than the entire faux & pretend ecosyustem of coinbases and whatnot. those COST, a shitton of money, for the services they fail to provide.

21:46:51 decimation: zooming out, the game theory is definitely against someone trying to make bigger blocks

21:47:08 mircea_popescu: if you think bitcoin is currently supported by people using bitpay to buy coffee, that is squarely your problem

21:47:14 trinque: mod6: I'm going to re-run it with the "vanilla" gcc now

21:47:20 mircea_popescu: well of course. problems down the road is what we signed up for.

23:56:40 mircea_popescu: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=02-07-2015#1184774 << no, i'm sure it works quite well. a good pick-up line is made out of two parts, one's a valuation and the other's an unknown. then conversation can proceed around the unknown and as it proceeds, etc.

23:57:46 mircea_popescu: ve never heard of a sexual market where men pay.

23:58:23 mircea_popescu: this is rank nonsense if you think any about it. the only part of sex that's in short supply is the erect penis. everything else is overabundant. how exactly would the owners of the only rare part be paying anyone for anything whatsoever ?
