00:48:08 mircea_popescu: first!

00:49:41 mircea_popescu: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=03-03-2016#1421236 << fancy that, i've just been to an incredibly shitty "super hip" bar here. nice tall ceilings, that the idiots took to defending against with some inept iron grating to make the seats all boxed in. live band, so fucking bad it had more in common with static noise than music.

00:49:41 assbot: Logged on 03-03-2016 19:05:18; pete_dushenski: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=03-03-2016#1420808 << i took in the alberta ballet's nutcracker in december, which is the local company. there were no more than 3 of the cast who could actually dance. the rest were trying to 'fake it till you make it', which drove me up the wall, particularly when the mouth-breathing audience took it upon themselves to give the sorry lot a standing o.

00:49:57 mircea_popescu: they had the unmitigated audacity to leave envelopes on the tables, "thanks for halping us continue with our art"

00:50:19 mircea_popescu: i crossed out art and wrote in "you stink" and "get a job", but something tells me they won't take this to heart and execute it exactly

00:50:31 mircea_popescu: just like any other derp/redditard to whom i give key life advice.

00:50:33 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 31800 @ 0.00056585 = 17.994 BTC [-] {2}

00:51:15 mircea_popescu: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=03-03-2016#1421239 << nice going, i'm at two too! we're ballerina bros now!

00:51:15 assbot: Logged on 03-03-2016 19:06:28; *: trinque has dated two ballerinas

00:54:13 mircea_popescu: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=03-03-2016#1421265 << and what exactly do you want me to do, invade china ?

00:54:13 assbot: Logged on 03-03-2016 19:39:39; asciilifeform: mircea_popescu, in particular, seems to understand this principle very well.

00:54:23 mircea_popescu: the brits of 1800 are nowhere to be seen.

01:00:40 asciilifeform: keccak?

01:03:03 mircea_popescu: i did not say "the machine gun". i said THE BRITS.

01:03:15 mircea_popescu: people other than orwell, who unlike orwell had sex and mattered in the world.

01:06:49 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 3965 @ 0.00056576 = 2.2432 BTC [-]

01:11:09 mircea_popescu: in other news - hilary apparently attacked trump, and with a total loser speech. it's all over, he's winning

01:11:32 mircea_popescu: seriously, not time to make america great again, it never ceased being great, gotta unite it more ? bitch, you lose. you lose so badly... jesus.

01:11:43 mircea_popescu: i don't recall when's the last time a democrat was so culturally inept. maybe carter.

01:19:55 mircea_popescu: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=03-03-2016#1421273 << as alf aptly points out, merely not telling people where you sleep does nothing to chillax the band of armed murderers going about the streets.

01:19:55 assbot: Logged on 03-03-2016 20:15:01; ben_vulpes: while "there's nothing wrong with addr reuse" made sense once upon a time, the new regime is that "tell people where you're sleeping, and they'll come murder you there".

01:21:12 mircea_popescu: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=03-03-2016#1421281 << the shit this guy does...

01:21:12 assbot: Logged on 03-03-2016 20:46:35; asciilifeform: i eventually put back the heathen bios on the x60, BUT i ida'd it and nop'd out the imbecile nic whitelist

01:23:50 BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> in other news - hilary apparently attacked trump, and with a total loser speech. it's all over, he's winning << It was Romney, but really no diff

01:23:57 mircea_popescu: in other news, they have these guts-of-figs with almods or other nuts on top sweets here. utterly delicious with a glass of vermouth

01:24:07 mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo wait wut ?

01:24:30 BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: Romney attacked Trump and offered brokered convention as a solution in his speech

01:24:40 mircea_popescu: nono, that's different

01:24:54 BingoBoingo: i.e. Let Trump win a plurality but not majority of delegates

01:25:00 BingoBoingo: Oh

01:25:30 mircea_popescu: anyway, trump got 7, next ghuy what, 3 ? 4 ? it's all over. i hope to hell he a) fails to get enough delegates and then b) spits in their faces re "brokered convention" and then c) starts his OWN party on pretty much a platform of "fuck the republicans and what are these democrats supposed to even be ?"

01:26:00 mircea_popescu: ideally the republican party should end by being spit in the face by "an outlier" and never recovering from it. best thing for them.

01:26:18 *: mircea_popescu is wishing trump the most mp-esque of fates.

01:27:33 BingoBoingo: Well, the writing's on the wall for that except for the part about such a fate being MP-esque, I mean Donald Trump-Clinton is a serial scammer.

01:27:41 mircea_popescu: sadly.

01:27:49 mircea_popescu: but for a better man, the correct strategy is exactly this.

01:27:56 mircea_popescu: besides, the us is just about ripe for a peron of its own

01:28:05 mircea_popescu: gotta become the argentina it always was, deep down.

01:28:18 mircea_popescu: what's the ivanka v2's name, evita trump what ?

01:29:51 BingoBoingo: This is really the fatal flaw in the whole voting business. All politicans get habituated to lying, scamming, and under delivering but these these outsiders like Donald Trump-Clinton beat them at their game because they practiced those things without the rest of the circle jerk more openly and more criminally.

01:29:57 *: mircea_popescu drinks a toast to the new PJBFRAWTFATDESTB US party.

01:30:01 BingoBoingo: I don't recall

01:30:19 mircea_popescu: (ie, Partido Justicialista Because Fuck Republicans And What The Fuck Are These Democrats Even Supposed To Be)

01:30:57 mircea_popescu: first party in history with a double fuck in the full name.

01:31:17 mircea_popescu: and that only because it abstains from discussing the economy.

01:32:40 *: BingoBoingo would just prefer a more honest wrecker to do the parting

01:33:15 mircea_popescu: and speaking of the us and its future - so macri's been in power for a few weeks now, the peronistas (ie, criminal-socialist party) kept hewing and hawing about how they'll bring the street power to bear. today they finally called out a demonstration, it was on all the news outlet. deeply zoomed in, it looked almost like a thing. but zoomed out, it was ~50 to 100 people in a yellow box "blocking traffic". all the plaza

01:33:15 mircea_popescu: de mayo wide the fuck open, more police than protestors, 50 miles of fence and 300 yards of protestor perimeter.

01:33:44 mircea_popescu: an utter humiliation, i have no idea why the fuck they even did it. but it's quite clear that without the cona house they got ~nothing.

01:35:12 mircea_popescu: so macri's here to stay, and the country's definitely going on sale. staples prices already up ~50 to maybe 100%, salaries frozen, all bureaucrats discussing in hushed tones their fears of which jobs will be cut... it's a pleasure.

01:35:17 mircea_popescu: i hope they all fucking starve.

01:35:25 mircea_popescu: oh wait, they sold the corn earlier. they're definitely starving.

01:36:25 BingoBoingo: lol

01:37:11 *: BingoBoingo wondering if much of the US is even planting corn this year

01:37:44 mircea_popescu: well the us has the advantage that the people contain enough food for ~decade, give or take.

01:37:50 mircea_popescu: they can just redistribute the fat.

01:40:30 mircea_popescu: and besides, since they ended canada's oil boom with their inept russian embargo shenanigans, the great farmland to the north can get back to agriculture. great obama-hruschev common single planning organ success!

01:42:17 BingoBoingo: lol pete_dushenski and nubbins' in two dog land have to dust off their hos

01:42:54 mircea_popescu: actually, for the interested us scholar, the history of the comecom should be read carefully. it's not merely informative, but will be quite predictive.

01:43:08 mircea_popescu: comecon*

01:45:14 assbot: Logged on 25-03-2014 20:55:09; asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: reminds me of, in reverse: '...Идет пленум ЦК, Генеральный секретарь читает доклад: Больших успехов достигли хлеборобы Кубанщины, Ставропольщины, Смоленщины, Техасщины, Колорадщины.'

01:45:24 BingoBoingo: Here they pronounce it Comicon

01:45:28 mircea_popescu: lmao

01:45:45 mircea_popescu: check out alf's elephantine memory!

01:46:32 asciilifeform: http://www.cbm.sfks.se/pics/elephant-memory-systems.jpg << who remembers these

01:46:44 *: asciilifeform still has a box full.

01:48:28 mircea_popescu: ha-ha!

01:50:23 mircea_popescu: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=03-03-2016#1420838 << what with the unmitigated audacity of organising "conferences" and announcing "agreements" as if anyone gave the slightest bit of a fuck.

01:50:23 assbot: Logged on 03-03-2016 13:18:23; asciilifeform: the cockroaches, mice, and rats, have come to genuinely believe that they own the house.

01:51:00 mircea_popescu: and these imbecile stallmans of a new generation, encouraging this nonsense. pfff.

01:53:39 ben_vulpes: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=04-03-2016#1421354 << sounds like the band asciilifeform and i got as far away from as possible while still able to gawk at the audience in bsas!

01:53:39 assbot: Logged on 04-03-2016 00:49:41; mircea_popescu: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=03-03-2016#1421236 << fancy that, i've just been to an incredibly shitty "super hip" bar here. nice tall ceilings, that the idiots took to defending against with some inept iron grating to make the seats all boxed in. live band, so fucking bad it had more in common with static noise than music.

01:54:11 mircea_popescu: the audience took me back 20 years. back in mid 90s, there was this bar in cluj, mostly favoured by highschooler chicks that were just mediocre but liked to think themsleves special.

01:54:23 ben_vulpes: remember that, asciilifeform ? we had more or less the whole upstairs to ourselves?

01:54:25 mircea_popescu: they went there to overdemonstratively socialise and pretend like they're drunk and please grab my teat.

01:54:31 asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: aha!

01:54:38 mircea_popescu: except these bovines would have counted as lamers in that ~lame set.

01:55:10 ben_vulpes: i do admire the stairs-barely-bolted-to-the-wall argentine asthetic

01:57:20 ben_vulpes: mircea_popescu: link to clitler speach?

01:58:46 ben_vulpes: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=04-03-2016#1421377 << today i learn that dirigibilists drink vermouth qua vermouth

02:05:04 mircea_popescu: why does she look so much like a fucking bird anyway.

02:05:23 mircea_popescu: this year in us election, an ogre runt and a quail on lsd.

02:05:36 ben_vulpes: THE ACID TRIP NEVER ENDS

02:08:22 ben_vulpes: mircea_popescu: what is the 'comecon'?

02:08:34 mircea_popescu: derpy soviet take on economy.

02:10:38 mircea_popescu: anyway, did the argentinos hallucinate the story ? never happened ?

02:10:52 ben_vulpes: ask someone who cares

02:11:04 mircea_popescu: was just asking in general :)

02:11:43 mircea_popescu: gotta say i like the language. the derps are fucking useless - saw a fucktard SLEEPING IN THE SHOP today, banned the shop - but check out "envalentonada".

02:11:46 ben_vulpes: look i'm always down to see people humiliate themselves or be humiliated but the acres of derping around before the hammer comes down isn't edging its just fucking boring

02:12:38 mircea_popescu: hm ?

02:14:47 mircea_popescu: what's his name, polly-wanna-baccarat or whatever the fuck.

02:14:58 *: BingoBoingo still rather convinced Hillary rodham-clinton and donald trump-clinton are colluding

02:15:33 mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo incidentally - imagine the fucking ratings once trump turns the white house into a nbc studio

02:15:39 mircea_popescu: "BE A PRESIDENTIAL ASSISTANT!"

02:16:31 mircea_popescu: chinese'd watch that shit.

02:16:31 *: BingoBoingo also kinda thought this just Trump juicing his ratings after NBC canned his struggling show

02:17:14 ben_vulpes: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sGUNPMPrxvA << oblig

02:19:06 mircea_popescu: anyway, needless to say the argentine press utterly hates trump. "o noes, male with an ego! hilary is for kids and women! NO UNA MENOS!!!1 herpderp"

02:19:49 *: mod6 just caught up on logs

02:20:19 mod6: lol @ PJBFRAWTFATDESTB

02:26:39 BingoBoingo: Sometimes for sport

02:26:55 cazalla: i'd vote for Trump, just for sport

02:27:29 cazalla: get a job help building that wall as well

02:27:46 mircea_popescu: lol. prolly a pretty good job.

02:28:50 BingoBoingo: Nah, prolly doing my sport voting for rubio or cruz in order to do my part for the brokered convention outcome

02:29:58 mircea_popescu: no love for mr hairday guy ?

02:31:48 asciilifeform: l0l sounds like a job for a gimp script (tnyscheme!11)

02:31:51 BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: I refuse to vote for a clinton so no, can't vote for hairday guy

02:32:17 BingoBoingo: <asciilifeform> vote for Vermin!11 << This general election course of action

02:32:33 asciilifeform: aha.

02:32:43 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform obviously you could take as many pics as payers. but in spite of the ridoinculousness, the nonsense provably works.

02:33:05 asciilifeform: provably?

02:33:09 asciilifeform: how

02:34:35 mircea_popescu: compare the counties where scheme was implemented (it's always done by the "local barons", not a central thing) with the counties where it isn't.

02:43:56 asciilifeform: pete_dushenski: pray explain how it works.

02:43:58 pete_dushenski: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=04-03-2016#1421360 << recently learned that 'freres de lait' shared wet nurse.

02:43:58 assbot: Logged on 04-03-2016 00:51:15; mircea_popescu: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=03-03-2016#1421239 << nice going, i'm at two too! we're ballerina bros now!

02:44:20 asciilifeform: so you send a privkey. recipient does what?

02:45:21 asciilifeform: now you gotta transact ~twice~

02:45:31 pete_dushenski: asciilifeform: user can't send tx because blackholed for using verboten tmsr service, let's say. user exports privkey from wallet, imports to bc.info, sends coins to new wallet and continues on his merry way.

02:45:46 asciilifeform: once to fill up the addr

02:45:59 asciilifeform: and now also he had to empty it.

02:46:29 pete_dushenski: issues may arise if coins are sent to 'wiped' address on throw-away bc.info wallet. thus, my response

02:46:43 asciilifeform: no, think

02:47:32 asciilifeform: say you happened to have addr with x btc just lying around. you pay me by sending its privk.

02:47:48 asciilifeform: now ~i~ want to spend.

02:48:07 asciilifeform: what, i send key again to next dest?!

02:48:34 asciilifeform: creating ~3~ wallets with identical key?!!

02:48:51 pete_dushenski: i must be thick

02:48:56 asciilifeform: and 3 folks who can spend it.

02:49:04 asciilifeform: even by accident

02:49:34 asciilifeform: pete_dushenski: think about why we even have bitcoin?

02:49:54 asciilifeform: instead of just saying 'i own this integer'

02:50:08 pete_dushenski: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=02-03-2016#1420598

02:50:08 assbot: Logged on 02-03-2016 22:56:04; pete_dushenski: if i may summarise the last 24 hours of logs, which i must say were eminently enjoyable save the lack of practical recourse discussed : bitcoin remains the world's worst payment network... except for all the others. and even still, not by much.

02:50:44 mircea_popescu: take it the other way, pete_dushenski

02:50:54 asciilifeform: do you recall the ancient derpage where folks sold accounts?

02:51:07 asciilifeform: or how mtgox was sold.

02:51:23 mircea_popescu: so you meet a shady guy in a bar, and he shows you an address with 10 btc in it, and gives you the privkey in exchange of taking the lady in the back alley half-n-half.

02:51:32 mircea_popescu: the lady side aside, do you think this is a sensible deal ?

02:51:45 pete_dushenski: no, because he can have copies of privkey

02:51:49 mircea_popescu: so then.

02:52:32 pete_dushenski: but if no more coins are sent to the shared privkey, then all's kosher, neh ?

02:52:42 mircea_popescu: how is it kosher ?

02:53:01 mircea_popescu: it's not kosher, it's a race as to who can spend first, and you're hoping the lady's good enough to keep him busy long enough for you to get to a wifi ?

02:53:07 deedbot-: [fraudsters] MPIF (F.MPIF) February 2016 Statement - http://fraudsters.com/2016/mpif-fmpif-february-2016-statement/

02:53:22 mircea_popescu: which i suppose works ok in this extemporaneous prostitution scenario, but pretty much nowhere else.

02:53:26 pete_dushenski: because it's then a throwaway intermediary. and yes, hoping that bc.info doesn't spend same coins in same 10 minutes is the risk.

02:53:29 asciilifeform: generally, situation where 2+ people each have full control of a prvkey, is a deadly failure

02:53:43 pete_dushenski: it's. 10. minutes.

02:53:44 asciilifeform: like short circuit in electronics.

02:54:05 pete_dushenski: after that, one hopes, no more.

02:54:22 mircea_popescu: well... what happens if the tx is not included in a block ?

02:54:26 pete_dushenski: i'm not advocating regular use of webwallets here

02:54:32 mircea_popescu: or, better yet, broadcast but "not seen", magically ?

02:54:54 mircea_popescu: by "the network", of course.

02:54:54 asciilifeform: pete_dushenski: what 10min?! whatever kept you from transacting like normal people, will keep you from moving the 'temporary' coinz

02:55:39 punkman: where the hell does bc.info come in and why

02:55:39 pete_dushenski: then bc.info has miners who prioritise their txen ?

02:55:43 asciilifeform: this whole thing is 'ukranian space program' - 'we'll fly to the sun! at night!'

02:55:50 pete_dushenski: l0l

02:56:26 pete_dushenski: mircea_popescu: then user is fucked because he's now shared privkeys and ~still~ has no way of transacting lol

02:56:38 pete_dushenski: punkman: just a place to import privkeys

02:56:56 pete_dushenski: one that seems to get tx included in blocks, i might add

02:57:04 punkman: pete_dushenski: I read the blog post, didn't make sense

02:57:31 pete_dushenski: just my experience

02:57:36 mircea_popescu: basically, the most charitable read of the thing i can come up with is, "if you find your own wallet unable to transact - try move the privkey to a webwallet, maybe it works there".

18:14:15 asciilifeform: it isn't as if most of the meatpuppets were doing whatever mathematical thing.

18:14:45 asciilifeform: so the reason has to be something else.

18:15:12 mircea_popescu: something else other than the uni-money pump can't be sustained anymore ? why ?

18:16:01 asciilifeform: because then the article would be 'the new, hip trade schools!11' or the like.

18:16:14 mircea_popescu: oh in somewaht lulzy news : obama is going to be in argentina 23-24th. he (and his 850 camp followers) is however not going to stay in buenos aires, but some far flung provincial shithole. either because afraid of running into me on corrientes, or else because petrified of LEFT WING PROTESTS.

18:16:33 mircea_popescu: cuz yeah, the socialists here more or less ready to firebomb the socialists from there.

18:16:51 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform much like soviet economy endgame, stuff isn't being replaced. simply removed.

18:17:28 asciilifeform: well yeah, but the ~order~ of removal is peculiar.

18:17:39 asciilifeform: most of the participants in the college racket are innocent of mathematics as it is.

18:17:50 mircea_popescu: why ? currently the harvard/mit/etc hedge funds masquerading as universities are pretty much the largest problem on fed's map.

18:18:11 mircea_popescu: oh, this isn't about math. this is about stem. stem costs TURKEY dollars.

18:18:16 mircea_popescu: the "studies" whores cost paper dollars.

18:18:48 PeterL: isn't the "m" in "stem" math?

18:19:20 asciilifeform: it used to ~cost~ when an engineering graduate expected to build bridges, pipelines.

18:19:23 asciilifeform: but not now.

18:19:28 mircea_popescu: you can replace the ~100 trn worth ivy league & friends that do a 10-20 bn spending on actual hardware each year and otherwise shuffle paper on the exchanges with a new-and-improved thing worth ~1-2 bn that spends 50 bucks on mcdonalsa a year.

18:19:38 asciilifeform: now he only expects, reasonably, to derp in cad and crap out 'intellectual property!111'

18:19:49 asciilifeform: he costs same as 'womenz studies' chick.

18:20:05 mircea_popescu: that's 100 trn in air bubble to breathe while the dod keeps losing trucks nominally full of trucks that were fully loaded with trucks.

18:20:18 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform afaik this isn't true.

18:20:51 mircea_popescu: specifically : while the universities may well be pushing costs down as you describe, they're sure as fuck noty passing the savings up the chain to comecon.

18:21:17 mircea_popescu: notably enough : romania told the soviets to shut it, and as a result the policy was updated to allow people (ie, romania) to do w/e it pleases.

18:21:31 mircea_popescu: curious if any of the loser satellites will succeed, or for that matter try, something similar.

18:21:43 mircea_popescu: (but now we know what the "protests" were for. softening - in preparation of this.)

18:22:01 asciilifeform: (i am speaking of cost of his doing business. ~wage~ is paid in the same toilet paper to everybody in usaschwitz)

18:23:17 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform it looks like, mit still is the hedge fund it was, whether it spends x on wage and y on fixed/capital goods or just x/2 on wage and epsilon on f/c

18:23:30 mircea_popescu: the savings show in mit's bottom line, not in the fed's.

18:23:43 asciilifeform: it's a usg crown hedgefund. in what sense does it not serve hitler ?

18:23:57 mircea_popescu: it is NOT a usg crown hedgefund anymore than romania was a soviet property.

18:24:14 asciilifeform: dunno about that, good chunk of mit income is direct usg grantolade

18:24:19 mircea_popescu: it has its own head. and this is a serious problem for the pretense of central planning, because they effectively suck down resources.

18:24:25 mircea_popescu: yep, it is.

18:24:34 mircea_popescu: try having children sometime, and then give them money, and then see what happens.

18:25:19 mircea_popescu: i don't think any human being in the history of this "man-woman family" idiocy has EVER heard "sure dad, go ahead, it's your money anyway"

18:26:49 mircea_popescu: ironically, sultans and other practitioners of "man-slavegirls-theirlitter family" did and regularly do hear such, for reasons that should be obvious and for which reason they're never discussed in idiocy-land.

18:28:03 PeterL: I dunno, bunches of dollars?

18:28:04 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform is what i'm saying here making sense to you ?

18:28:05 asciilifeform: PeterL: the usg uni thing was originally a product of the 1950s wunderwaffen obsession, that has been fading since

18:28:14 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: which

18:28:19 asciilifeform: the sultan thing ?

18:28:21 asciilifeform: not entirely

18:28:25 mircea_popescu: nah, the thing with money flow.

18:29:15 asciilifeform: the argument is clear but i don't see how the wunderwaffen payola is necessarily 'turkeydollar'

18:29:30 asciilifeform: so an engineer is paid 200k-usd. he spends it in same place as the lit major.

18:29:33 asciilifeform: housing racket.

18:29:35 mircea_popescu: because the cyclotron building either works or does not. and they can't lie about the latter.

18:29:39 mircea_popescu: nonononon

20:09:54 mircea_popescu: but it is absolutely not the relay's fucking job to attempt to otherwise "check" txns

20:10:03 mircea_popescu: "is it signed validly ? are the inputs in blocks ?" and that is IT.

20:10:07 asciilifeform: from miner's pov, that'd be a defective relay

20:10:11 asciilifeform: and is to be eschewed.

20:10:14 mircea_popescu: ^

20:10:25 asciilifeform: it is really not so fucking hard to grasp the protocol

20:10:46 asciilifeform: (though a number of folks do a mighty fine job failing, somehow, to)

20:11:07 mircea_popescu: you mean to guess what the protocol should have been

20:11:20 jurov: the realy that allows to fillt is mempool by conflicting transactions is indeed defective

20:11:31 jurov: damn kdb

20:12:01 mircea_popescu: there is absolutely nothing wrong relaying multiple txn that spend the same inputs ; there is EVERYTHING wrong with the notion you shouldn't do this.

20:12:08 asciilifeform: jurov: beyond 'throw out the cheapo crapola', it is not relay's place to resolve the conflict.

20:12:43 mircea_popescu: certainly ANY relay that currently drops on the floor a VALIDLY SIGNED txn is broken. no possible argument here.

20:12:47 mircea_popescu: the job of relaying is - to relay.

20:13:19 asciilifeform: well, validly-signed but inputs-already-spent-and-this-is-in-a-block is noise.

20:13:28 jurov: so, i'll spend 1 btc million times with 0.1 fee, feed it to you and you'll be like "not my problem"?

20:13:30 mircea_popescu: the overarching design principle being that ALL the information deciding the treatment of a txn MUST BE ~COMPLETELY~ in the txn in question.

20:13:34 mircea_popescu: you may NOT have state.

20:13:44 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: we have a permitted state - it is called the blockchain.

20:13:48 asciilifeform: as in, the actual blocks.

20:13:59 jurov: this is wankery.

20:13:59 mircea_popescu: and the idiots that made a state machine out of the fucking relays are so stupid it's basically inhuman.

20:14:11 jurov: and won't work in practice.

20:14:14 mircea_popescu: psssh.

20:14:36 asciilifeform: jurov: works great in practice. in your trb node.

20:14:56 jurov: my node does check for conflicts

20:15:34 jurov: that works great, too

20:18:00 jurov: !up Reydev

20:19:23 asciilifeform: jurov: checks for conflicts ?!

20:19:27 asciilifeform: and what does it reject ??

20:19:32 asciilifeform: whatever comes second ??

20:19:37 jurov: so far, yes

20:20:07 asciilifeform: verily this is lame.

20:21:19 jurov: letting memory to fill with turds isn't lame?

20:21:23 jurov: both are.

20:23:00 asciilifeform: it isn't a turd if it is valid.

20:23:19 asciilifeform: (well, it can be, if it falls below the specified fee/byte mark)

20:26:38 jurov: your memory together for all the conficted txs falls below the specified fee/byte mark, you can admit at least this is true

20:27:14 asciilifeform: jurov: the logical thing to do would be to resolve all conflicts by maximizing fee.

20:27:19 asciilifeform: the only logical thing.

20:27:33 asciilifeform: but 'seen first is The One' is asinine.

20:27:37 jurov: but ALL the conflicts have same $maxint fee

20:28:02 jurov: YES, first one, si asinine, lit's move on

20:28:34 jurov: i don't argue to keep current algo!

20:28:50 jurov: i just am asking ahy you give your memory so cheaply?

20:29:05 asciilifeform: the original thread was re: how the current protocol, which allows a tx to refer to unconfirmed inputs, is retarded.

20:29:35 jurov: and you reacted by putting forward no less retarded notion to keep everythign that has inputs in block

20:29:57 asciilifeform: while maximizing summed fee, aha

20:30:05 asciilifeform: what's the problem with that ?

20:30:17 asciilifeform: and yes, you sum over the non-conflicting tx.

20:30:45 jurov: but then you have to check for conflicts!

20:31:11 trinque: lol

20:31:23 jurov: am i dense or what's happening here

20:31:41 asciilifeform: you check ~when expelling~ from the pool

20:31:49 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform> but 'seen first is The One' is asinine. << srsly.

20:32:05 jurov: either there's a state machine that considers other txen in mempool, or no conflict resolution, there's no third way

20:32:14 mircea_popescu: no conflict resolution.

20:32:17 mircea_popescu: it is not a relayer job.

20:32:39 mircea_popescu: dumbass doing the original ~prototype~ had nfi of design, ended up shoehorning everything in everything else

20:32:55 mircea_popescu: producing the equivalent of penises with a clitoral hood and cunts with a bit of penile foreskin and on and on.

20:33:49 jurov: no conflict resolution = free memory for attacker

20:34:34 jurov: messing with your clitoris wont change it

20:34:57 asciilifeform: conflict resolution == free cpu for attacker.

20:35:50 jurov: how free?

20:36:08 jurov: they must make all these zillion conflicting signatures

20:36:27 jurov: and also loses txfee when one of these tx is mined

20:37:41 jurov: oh and actually, how do you check if enemy sends the same tx many times?

20:37:57 jurov: without even producing new sigs?

20:38:16 asciilifeform: he can make'em in O(1)

20:38:22 asciilifeform: you resolve in O(N^2).

20:38:40 asciilifeform: asymptotic death.

20:38:41 jurov: why O(N)?

20:38:53 jurov: *why not

20:39:50 mircea_popescu: jurov> no conflict resolution = free memory for attacker << you drop stuff under minfee.

20:40:11 mircea_popescu: jurov because you have to search omg.

20:40:20 jurov: mircea_popescu of course. please reread and think

20:40:29 mircea_popescu: EVEN if you build a tree - which you do not, chiefly because don't know how - you STILL lose out on the rebalancings

20:40:33 mircea_popescu: which you must do and he - not.

20:40:35 jurov: we don't have anything better than cartesian joins?

20:42:34 jurov: eh why do i strive here, like with NAT, inputs vs. addresses and maybe several other things, you will eventually come to terms with what i meant

20:43:03 jurov: after several months of screaming STUPIDITY and listing NAT.ROUTERS and whatnot

20:43:04 mircea_popescu: well, for practicing speech if nothing else.

20:43:18 mircea_popescu: what do you think this is in reference to ?

20:44:34 jurov: i explained why NAT is stupid, like one way telephone that only accepts calls, you laughed at me and told you wouldn't want any other

20:44:51 jurov: *that only allows outgoing calls

20:45:34 jurov: then we had dicsussion where I was unable to explain why addresses aren't spent, but outputs are, same reult

20:46:31 mircea_popescu: specifically : "<jurov> after several months of screaming STUPIDITY and listing NAT.ROUTERS and whatnot" << you propose i did what ?

20:46:43 jurov: why did you list NAT.ROUTERS?

20:46:47 jurov: "list"

20:47:04 mircea_popescu: i have no fucking idea, it's a random string. it certainly didn't have some sort of intention, and i was certainly not thinking of you.

20:47:17 mircea_popescu: i think i had moneys-something in there for a while also, or whatever.

20:47:49 mircea_popescu: but this aside. so you said nat routers are stupid and i said i'm happy with them and this evnetually means i came to terms to what, using the jurov two way router ? or what ?

20:48:30 mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo what's the cannonical article re pres. bahamas, witgh the pic ? the asean one ?

20:48:40 jurov: overall, i feel i can't explain myself well to you no matter what i try

20:49:15 mircea_popescu: in all cases when what you're trying to explain makes no sense or generally ?

20:49:32 jurov: in many cases. then alf or someone other explains again and you get it

20:51:04 mircea_popescu: must be frustrating. well, generally a good starting point of understanding a problem is, making a list of observed cases.

20:51:27 mircea_popescu: but the important part there is making the complete list, like with any other scientific approach.

20:51:28 jurov: yes this needs some examples and i don't have it

20:51:58 mircea_popescu: in the interim, http://36.media.tumblr.com/da92abb4cb83ac6ed09106da2fd1421e/tumblr_mlfknbycbE1qlne6uo1_1280.jpg

20:52:00 assbot: ... ( http://bit.ly/1L7ykEr )

20:57:43 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i suppose his idea is, in plainer english, that in principle fee is no deterrent, because if he makes 1mn txn that are all valid but spend the same inputs, only one can be eventgually mined and so he can create as many txn as he wants for you to relay and only pay the fee once, eventually. whereas only keeping the first seen one protects from this.

20:58:27 mircea_popescu: how this is supposed to be an argument against sane design i have no idea, but whatevs, "kludge works for me" is how we get kludges ever since kludge one.

21:05:52 BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> BingoBoingo what's the cannonical article re pres. bahamas, witgh the pic ? the asean one ? << yes

21:08:19 mircea_popescu: flatware etatist bullshit.

21:08:41 asciilifeform: aha.

21:09:28 asciilifeform: and it comes back to the tx thing like this: eventually we learn who shat out the million crud tx.

21:09:40 asciilifeform: and stop peering with him.

21:10:09 asciilifeform: and then he has to beg, to use the network at all.

21:10:38 asciilifeform: the net-as-publictoilet era will end.

21:10:49 asciilifeform: and good fucking riddance.

21:12:18 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: there's no such actual thing as flatgraph - only star topology with thinly disguised star.

21:13:00 mircea_popescu: <asciilifeform> the net-as-publictoilet era will e << and this is exactly the situation we have now, except we don't like the miners.

21:13:13 asciilifeform: aha.

21:13:19 mircea_popescu: the expectation you'll fix broken protocol sociall is inept.

21:13:23 mircea_popescu: fix the protocol.

21:13:36 asciilifeform: the ancient and inevitable pill for such situations is called:

21:13:40 asciilifeform: war.

21:14:26 mircea_popescu: war is the thing that happens when idiots fucked up the design.

21:14:33 asciilifeform: aha.

21:15:52 mircea_popescu: anyway, back to the issue. having nodes discard dupes is in principle stupid ; having nodes discard dupes on a first-seen basis is entirely warantless ; trying to run an implementation of this design will run into problems.

21:15:58 asciilifeform: my point was, minertards won't go willingly into the good night.

21:16:20 mircea_popescu: the problem ~MAY~ be that bitcoin transactions are dupe-able in the first place, for instance.\

21:16:45 mircea_popescu: which is why bitcoin protocol discussions are so complex, and the whole thing so hard : because omfg, the complexity. you don't even rightly know where the problem comes from really, in the rat's nest.

21:16:50 asciilifeform: (and the protocol actually selects for idiots, smart folks don't mine)

21:17:54 asciilifeform: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=04-03-2016#1422102 << waiwut??

21:17:54 assbot: Logged on 04-03-2016 21:16:20; mircea_popescu: the problem ~MAY~ be that bitcoin transactions are dupe-able in the first place, for instance.\

21:18:05 asciilifeform: what's this mean

21:18:07 mircea_popescu: yes, what ?

21:19:30 mircea_popescu: for instance (and plox, before we run off with it - example only!) : if every tx was defined as "only 1 input - only 1 output" and if you wanted to make a larger payment youy'd have to make MULTIPLE txn, then a) the protocol would actually make a lot more sense, atomicity-wise and b) you wouldn't have the problems jurov describes. because pay x to y with fee z would exist EXACTLY one way.

21:19:37 asciilifeform: bitstrings are 'dupable' by nature, bitcoin's whole purpose is to hack around this, to the extent physically possible, like a ship is a hack around the sea

21:19:46 mircea_popescu: they don't have to be.

21:20:56 asciilifeform: it still isn't '1 way' - sig nonce, timestamp, scriptolade...

21:21:05 mircea_popescu: (yes i'm aware that the above example allows no payments other than in multiples of 50 btc for a while, then multiples of 25, and EVENTUALLY in sasothis. MIND YOU that this is a feature and what you are using now a bug - da fuck do you do when the coinbase is split up in all the satoshis it could be ? ha ? oh, "works for you as it is" ? ty.)

21:23:29 mircea_popescu: i just put that there to generally and pars pro toto show that when i say bitcoin is a steaming pile of shit, and broadly an undesigned kludge i mean very specific things.

21:23:57 mircea_popescu: and derpy arguments "won" with me over the particular brokedness of the prototype implementation are roughly the same value and consistency as used toiletpaper.

21:24:05 asciilifeform: i suspect that we all here know which.

21:24:28 mircea_popescu: im not even sure I know which! there's too many. and the bitch with things like these is you always forget one.

22:07:32 asciilifeform: aha

22:07:56 mircea_popescu: at least on this design the problem is sanely approacheable - make address creation REASONABLY expensive, for SANE, DEFINED, PROTOCOL reasons.

22:08:01 asciilifeform: it solves malleability- but not doubles

22:08:14 mircea_popescu: not "why is it chained liek so ?" "uhhhh... [spittle dribbling]" as is currently the case.

22:09:10 mircea_popescu: so that someone asking for a payment to address x already has skin in the game - whatever it cost him to make the address.
