00:00:11 asciilifeform: moiety: the emulator is a very ragged toy. the actual gadget works considerably better.

00:01:19 asciilifeform: at some point i'll get around to selling the actual microwriter

00:01:24 asciilifeform: (not much use for it here)

00:01:46 bitcoinpete: BingoBoingo: https://twitter.com/bitcoinpete/status/473977662294081537

00:01:48 assbot: SEC, Voorhees, etc. http://t.co/AZIAh29FsN via /BBoingo

00:02:18 BingoBoingo: bitcoinpete: Thanks. Got to beat Coindesk to the aggragators

00:02:48 BingoBoingo: moiety: I'm guessing you aren't familiar serious humidity.

00:03:22 bitcoinpete: np

00:04:26 BingoBoingo: bitcoinpete: You seem to have the stronger social media presence

00:05:45 asciilifeform: taking joy in having 'strong social media presence' would be rather like rejoicing in living next to a swamp, to have 'strong mosquito presence'

00:06:29 bitcoinpete: BingoBoingo: lol seem? i'm happy to help :)

00:06:52 BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: It isn't that there is benefit derived from it. It is that when we can beat the Coindesks to the aggregators, it injures them in ways only they can rationalize.

00:07:30 BingoBoingo: bitcoinpete: Well, I'm gifting you that Canadian modesty.

00:08:22 bitcoinpete: asciilifeform: there's most certainly benefit derived from twitter and west nile isn't the half of it

00:08:26 asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: the buggers' traditional defense is to pretend that the event was a non-event - or, if this is impractical, to continue living in an imaginary world where they 'scooped' the story first, and all of the 'unsanctioned' discussion never happened.

00:08:59 bitcoinpete: not saying it's much of a benefit… just non-zero

00:09:18 asciilifeform: think back to the purpose of the phoundation.

00:10:13 asciilifeform: or the myriad 'tame' seekoority blogs, which studiously avoid mention of nsa, etc.

00:11:46 moiety: BingoBoingo: not really, I don't think thailand for a fortnight, hopping from aircon to aircon counts lol

00:12:15 BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: I remember that time quite a while back when, maybe it was accident on your part, but you loosened the anus's of the various Apple Occultists with your hypercard post.

00:12:55 *: BingoBoingo realized this week he had indeed run into Loper well before -assets

00:13:26 BingoBoingo: Digging through archives I found hypercard setup VM exactly as asciilifeform described

00:14:59 moiety: asciilifeform: what should a microwriter cost now (approx)?

00:21:27 asciilifeform: moiety: no clue. got mine on ebay a few yrs back for about 100 usd

00:21:43 asciilifeform: moiety: it's rare enough that there is no ready source for it

00:22:09 asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: loosened the anus's of the various Apple Occultists << that might've been 'non-apple's mistake'

00:24:04 BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Well, the VM's name was one of the library school classes, so maybe I did the loosening during a presentation in a technology class.

00:24:39 moiety: you get modern usb ones :o i think the older ones look nicer though.definitely one for the collection

00:25:29 BingoBoingo: This was a crowd of the sort where "technology"=="social media"

00:25:30 []bot: Bet placed: 1.5 BTC for No on "Bitcoin over $1000 before September" http://bitbet.us/bet/866/ Odds: 57(Y):43(N) by coin, 58(Y):42(N) by weight. Total bet: 7.02379439 BTC. Current weight: 90,188.

00:25:32 nubbins`: BingoBoingo: i actually had wondered why $15k plus damages -- didn't realize until you pointed out that they didn't touch s.dice

00:25:40 nubbins`: ty

00:26:11 BingoBoingo: nubbins`: You're welcome. I mean the summaries suck when the ignore the SEC's endorsement of MPEx in the actual filing.

00:26:33 nubbins`: well, you're one upvote closer to the front page

00:27:16 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 5300 @ 0.00086494 = 4.5842 BTC [+]

00:27:41 *: BingoBoingo remembers the project as "present what three vendors have in the way of tools for advancing technology education"

00:30:10 *: BingoBoingo presented OS 7.5.1 with Hypercard, lynx, and Sun Ultra 80.

00:30:30 bloctoc: Financial Times has a paragraph today on mpex, alongside the SEC story on Erik Vorhees.

00:30:44 nubbins`: link?

00:30:50 nubbins`: this is actually hilariously epic

00:31:01 nubbins`: mp tells the sec to get stuffed, they shrug and then do exactly that

00:31:03 bloctoc: probably won't work, but here goes:

00:32:35 bloctoc: can you yokels not afford FT subscription?

00:32:48 nubbins`: it's more a case of not being interested in supporting a paywall

00:32:59 BingoBoingo: bloctoc: Not can't afford. Can't conscience sending them money.

00:33:18 BingoBoingo: They aren't in my WoT

00:34:31 bloctoc: that may change. FT didn't mention the price or say btc is tulip, ponzi, scam. They're usually pretty abusive.

00:35:05 bloctoc: A number of Bitcoin enthusiasts have been drawn to trading in shares of virtual currency companies, or other financial instruments such as Bitcoin derivatives, traded in Bitcoin on unregulated websites. MPex, the Romanian exchange where SatoshiDice used to trade, currently lists four stocks, one fund and five derivatives for trading.

00:35:48 bloctoc: was that paywall too?

00:36:49 BingoBoingo: bloctoc: yeah, they are writing out their possibility of being in my WoT with the inane engineering of their paywall

00:50:41 nubbins`: things were different back then

00:51:12 mike_c: that is still impossible. that would have been, what, ALL the btc?

00:51:12 bloctoc: there was a cap of 21 million btc back then

01:16:56 asciilifeform: mike_c: searched for schematics of constant voltage transformer last night, in 'google images', ended up getting this - http://www.maxfarquar.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/04/Oh-Fuck.png

01:17:05 asciilifeform: on account of it being in kako's channel log!

01:17:30 mike_c: i saw that earlier. cracks me up :)

01:18:07 BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: See this linking and getting linked thing is insidious...

01:18:15 asciilifeform: and then had a colleague look up 'dec alpha' machine, in same search, and he got... an old post of mine.

01:18:27 asciilifeform: surely i'm not the only person to post a picture of dec alpha.

01:18:43 asciilifeform: conclusion, is, inescapably, that google sucks. but this isn't a discovery.

01:19:07 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 44319 @ 0.00086494 = 38.3333 BTC [-]

01:19:46 BingoBoingo: I wonder if Oreilly would actually commision that title though. I'd buy it.

01:19:47 mike_c: it's like democracy. the worst except for the alternatives.

01:19:56 asciilifeform: i sort of suspect that google tries to feed people their own shit deliberately - by ip block if possible, or by relational inference of some form if not

01:20:18 BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: That it does

01:21:03 mike_c: damn, jd had a good day.

01:21:34 asciilifeform: BingoBoingo, moiety: i didn't know vorhees might've been a spammer. is the accusation true?

01:21:58 asciilifeform: i.e. 'paid users in virtual currency when they retweeted promotional material on Twitter.'

01:22:17 mike_c: line between a marketer and a spammer is thin.

01:22:19 BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: It's basically what FeedZeBirds was

01:23:06 asciilifeform: damn, i was hoping it was a cruel lie.

01:23:37 BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Dunno what it really did. I think he bought it second or third hand

01:24:25 BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: You also have to understand. Of the relatively early Bitcoiners MP is practically a saint.

01:25:12 asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: understatement. practically the only participant whose product works 'as printed on the crate'

01:28:19 asciilifeform: mike_c: the worst except for the alternatives << i sometimes use 'yandex.' it's encrusted with 1990s-style pestilential ad crapola, but mostly works.

01:29:30 asciilifeform: line between a marketer and a spammer << 'cold-caller' is a spammer, period.

01:29:56 asciilifeform: if successful cold-call, might be forgiven, 'treason prospers for the reason that if it prospers none dare call it treason...' etc

01:30:00 asciilifeform: but spam is spam.

01:30:19 asciilifeform: *never prospers

01:34:46 peterl: I used feedzebirds briefly

01:34:53 peterl: it seemed like a nice idea

01:35:04 BingoBoingo: peterl: Do you remember what exactly it was about?

01:35:21 peterl: you got to pick the retweets to send out, and so you could just use the interesting ones

01:36:08 peterl: you got paid based on how many followers you had

02:35:02 BingoBoingo: Well, this channel exists because... Maybe someone can explain it better...

02:35:13 BingoBoingo: Basically "Forum has problems"

04:24:46 BingoBoingo: moiety: It was a story

04:29:41 moiety: these wee chicks have nothing ont he wee girls from last year though, well the one that stabbed her sister

04:29:54 *: asciilifeform wonders if the cops will make the gurlz play 'prisoner's dilemma' if it cannot be proven which one stabbed

04:44:39 asciilifeform: the actual 'free market' price of a u.s. suburban house, if none of this were happening, is probably close to $10k (number pulled from my arse)

04:45:12 BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Around here there are livable houses near $40k in decent towns

04:45:20 Vexual: ill think youll find the free market price is what it sells for

04:45:51 asciilifeform: Vexual: see the supply cartel discussion above

04:45:56 BingoBoingo: In StL proper you find Sub $5k houses without buyers, because Oh noes, negros!

04:46:52 asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: only answer is, nothing within driving distance employs folks who could afford the land tax.

04:47:02 asciilifeform: otherwise someone - negro, martian, whoever - would live there.

04:47:07 *: BingoBoingo has a brother renting a house he could buy with a year's rent. He doesn't buy because of the burden of unloading it later

04:47:44 BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: That is the flip side of the problem

08:37:54 Naphex: what's he going crazy about?

08:38:15 Naphex: just change Bitcoin-Central to Paymium on front page, and you're about done :P

08:38:22 davout: too easy

08:38:58 davout: since we're launching merchant services at about the same time and that we're going to have a single landing page it needs some lifting

08:39:16 Naphex: you're doing merchant services / exchange under the same platform?

08:39:32 Naphex: won't it clutter up with all the merchant features?

08:40:12 davout: you mean on the front page ?

08:40:24 Naphex: no i mean just in general, the code the platform etc

08:41:06 Naphex: i mean we're working on finalizing the payment/merchant gateway as well. but we're building them as separate projects to avoid clutter

08:41:11 Naphex: and unifing the wallets so they can interlink

08:41:31 davout: the interlink code could count as clutter as well

08:41:34 Naphex: then BTCXPay for payments / BTXChange for trading/exchanging

08:41:46 Naphex: well interlink code is needed anyway, for wallet apps and the rest

08:41:47 davout: you don't do the exchanging ?

08:41:52 Naphex: so atleast they share same wallet/account

08:42:05 davout: i mean can't a merchant request to be paid 12.34 EUR and receive exactly that ?

08:42:13 Naphex: he can

08:42:42 Naphex: but the merchant services will be a whole differnt app with merchant in mind, and all the features that come with merchant gateways

08:43:03 davout: i like the idea of having a single app to maintain

08:43:21 Naphex: i think exchange / payment services are too big fields too keep under same app

08:43:22 davout: also, a lot of code to check for incoming payments and track them properly is shared

08:43:42 davout: the money flows are managed in a unified process

08:44:04 Naphex: probably but that opens a whole lot of room, for vulnerabilities, bugs, spaghetti code, maintainance problems

08:44:08 Naphex: and a lot of clutter in a big app

08:44:10 xmj: mm.

08:44:21 xmj: Naphex: what language do you write that one in?

08:44:46 Naphex: since merchant are going too need merchant reports, invoice listings, button generators, cart generators, apis and plugins to intergrate in popular ecommerce platforms

08:45:00 davout: Naphex: i don't think splitting apps would make it less vulnerable, on the contrary, having only one attack surface is easier to manage

08:45:04 Naphex: xmj: nowadays i usually write standalone java for backends

08:45:25 davout: for the

08:45:43 fluffypony: xmj: Naphex has been plugged directly into his server banks for a while now

08:45:47 fluffypony: so he just thinks in code

08:45:57 Naphex: thats correct ;]

08:45:59 fluffypony: I hear he's switching to Swift after watching the Apple demo on Monday

08:45:59 davout: api for example, we leverage a lot of code that already exists, the extra part is a couple of models and their business logic, the e-commerce plugins are separate ofc

08:46:21 xmj: Naphex: Java seems a popular choice for financial transaction backends

08:46:50 xmj: Naphex: we've developed a p2p credit/lending site, our bank's API connectors are in java.

08:47:15 Naphex: xmj: its pretty lean, fast, threading is a dream and NIO is great and fast and easy to implement

08:47:23 xmj: NIO ?

08:47:27 xmj: non-blocking IO ?

08:47:33 Naphex: then you got really good tools, and profilers and debuggers

08:47:36 Naphex: xmj: yes

08:48:17 Naphex: but i don't use servlets or other middleware, so there's that.

08:48:32 xmj: ah

08:48:43 xmj: matter of taste i guess.

08:48:50 Naphex: speed

08:48:59 xmj: I really really like Python, because it's legible and fast to write prototypes in.

08:49:16 xmj: By the time you have serious scaling issues, you can always write things in Cython.

08:49:18 Naphex: python's not bad. twisted python is perty okay

08:49:31 xmj: or C. or C++.

08:49:37 Naphex: yep

08:49:49 xmj: (though, I can't write C. yet.)

08:49:57 Naphex: i do the same in jave, write JNI if there are bottlenecks or too slow performing native functions

08:50:10 Naphex: but rarely i have to do that for backends, as in hardware nowadays is too fast to care

08:50:22 Naphex: but i have done a lot of that for embedded and it worked out very nice

08:51:19 xmj: cool

08:51:29 Naphex: <+davout> Naphex: i don't think splitting apps would make it less vulnerable, on the contrary, having only one attack surface is easier to manage <<

08:51:40 Naphex: I like my stuff modular, i split a big app into scalable services

08:51:42 Naphex: then interlink

08:51:58 xmj: benefit: you can reuse those parts more easily across customers.

08:52:02 Naphex: now i know services are secure and they stay clean and sharp to the point code

08:52:07 xmj: no need to reinvent wheels if you already have a stack of them.

08:52:21 Naphex: yep

08:52:34 Naphex: so i can have wallet nodes, exchange nodes (which can be split into INSTRUMENT servers)

08:53:55 davout: Naphex: you're bound to have quite some coupling

08:54:33 Naphex: there is no problem with coupling, nodes come out with coupling since start

08:54:42 davout: howso ?

08:54:53 Naphex: and they can handle their duty, wallet nodes can be used by clients to connect and manage their wallets

08:55:03 Naphex: exchange nodes can be accessed to convert the currency

08:55:21 Naphex: and payment nodes to process payments and get auto notifications from them

08:55:43 Naphex: they come up with servicing in mind, and the same way a client hooks up to them web platforms hook up as well

08:55:47 davout: but do you have a single unified domain model ?

08:56:05 davout: yeah, we have that too, the web interface is a module that hooks into the API

08:56:13 davout: it's not built in to the app

08:56:29 Naphex: see, now will that api do payments processing as well in the same big app?

08:56:33 Naphex: or be split into modular nodes

08:56:36 Naphex: which will interlink

08:57:14 davout: there is a blockchain watching process that notifies the models when it sees an incoming payment

08:57:21 Naphex: i just think one big app to handle wallet api, exchange api, payments api might just be too big

08:57:41 Naphex: and eventually you will have to split it to scale

08:58:03 davout: well, look at the trading for example

08:58:10 davout: you can not horizontally scale it

08:58:24 davout: it *has* to be a sequential queue that's processed FIFO

08:58:30 Naphex: yep

08:58:55 davout: how does having it as a separate thing help ?

08:59:07 Naphex: well, the exchange api will be that sequential queue.

08:59:23 davout: i mean, in my case it's a separate process, but it does however leverage a unique domain model

08:59:32 Naphex: but why does it have to also manage the wallets, and record user transactions, and process payments

08:59:35 Naphex: right?

08:59:46 davout: it needs to record transactions

08:59:47 Naphex: because it handles exchange data, and orders, and order queues, and execution

09:00:03 davout: executions result in writes into your accounting, right?

09:00:05 Naphex: and maybe order rules

09:00:26 Naphex: davout: brb gotta eat, continue afteward if you're still on

09:00:30 davout: sure

09:00:38 Naphex: davout: but an exchange transaction != a bitcoin transaction

09:00:45 Naphex: or an exchange transaction != payment transaction

09:00:55 davout: sure, but they all need to be accounted for

09:01:16 davout: they need to go in the ledger, also these transactions may share properties

09:01:39 davout: a lot of code is common between a bitcoin deposit and an invoice bitcoin payment

09:02:44 davout: for example, the service call "monitor bitcoin address xyz for x days" is common between a deposit address creation, and an invoice creation

10:28:45 davout: pankkake: what do you mean ?

10:29:09 davout: dub: so you're windows?

10:29:39 dub: for UI shit yeah

10:29:44 pankkake: it's just not ergonomic. makes you work a lot with the mouse for nothing

10:30:25 davout: pankkake: i use it everyday, and imo it's the best window management, it never feels like it gets in the way

10:30:53 davout: i keep raging about it each time i use a windows comp, and i don't use gui when i use linux

10:31:16 davout: mostly because i use linux for servers

10:31:50 davout: dub: well, osx is pretty good for ui imo, so i'm happy this way

10:33:08 davout: also, they're finally sucking the bitcoin cock :D

10:33:17 dub: just making an observation, we tend to run close to the front of tech trends over here and it struck me that apple are pretty much invisible outside of mobile

10:33:52 dub: which is a change from last time I thought about it

10:34:48 pankkake: do they really allow bitcoin applications, or is it yet another redditation?

10:35:28 davout: pankkake: well, i pointed out the fact that their new policy didn't mean shit taken on its own, however it appears there are some wallets that are back in

10:35:32 davout: such as coinjar

10:35:49 davout: so, i thought like you, but the facts seem to tell a different story

10:37:33 davout: https://itunes.apple.com/au/app/coinjar-for-iphone/id725209873?mt=8

10:37:33 assbot: CoinJar for iPhone on the App Store on iTunes

10:39:03 pankkake: * Managed Bitcoin wallet in the cloud

10:40:14 davout: coinjar?

10:40:26 pankkake: yes

10:40:57 davout: that doesn't change the point

10:41:42 davout: their "Fair rate(TM)" is pretty ridiculous too

10:44:14 Naphex: !up HeySteve

10:45:23 cazalla: don't you mean zhoujar

10:45:38 davout: o it's ryan's ?

10:45:42 cazalla: yeah

10:46:15 pankkake: well they might not want to allow application that store the private key

10:46:57 davout: pankkake: sounds doubtful

10:47:16 davout: their issue was "facilitating transmission"

10:47:32 davout: we'll see if blockchain gets back

10:47:35 Naphex: they will prolly ban p2p aps

10:47:41 Naphex: as they ban torrent apps a well

10:47:51 Naphex: so no Mycelium or thin clients

10:47:53 davout: p2p what? trading?

10:48:11 Naphex: Peer2Peer wallets, that connect to bitcoin network and do SPV

10:48:44 Naphex: so only centralized single source wallets

10:52:02 davout: the idea that they'll make a difference isn't supported by any facts so far

10:52:19 Naphex: well.. blockchain is down yet mycelium works

10:52:34 Naphex: so anyone who tried to use blockchain.info in the last i dunno 5-6 hours

10:52:37 Naphex: got erros

10:52:52 Naphex: while mycelium worked fine. that will make a difference every time there is a service failure

10:54:16 davout: no, the idea that they will categorize applications based on whether or not they store the keys, or rely on a central service

10:55:15 davout: is supported neither by their policy, nor by factual experience

12:32:06 Naphex: hehe thats what i meant

12:33:28 mircea_popescu: but incidentally, this is a good fucking point, re php. hear all ye haters and knowppls : steal a fraudsters cookie, get a bitcoin.

12:37:48 mircea_popescu: remote_addr+salt+pw or somesuch

12:37:58 mircea_popescu: i forget exactly but in principle that's the scheme

12:38:50 Naphex: is it just hashed and you check hash or you keep serverside session?

12:38:56 mircea_popescu: no sessions.

12:39:10 Naphex: so just hash(remote_addr+salt+pw) in /set-cookie.php

12:39:11 Naphex: and then check

12:53:26 Naphex: atleast tell me what does the extra byte before password do?:)

12:53:35 Naphex: i'm guessing e163 / 68a9 encodes the ip

14:13:23 moiety: i wonder how things would be with bitcoin today if all this time and energy thats been spent on alts had been focussed on btc

14:15:07 fluffypony: the problem is that much of the time and energy has been spent by people that aren't really on "that level", so if they focused on BTC instead we'd just see more shitty copies of exchanges / gambling sites etc.

14:15:23 fluffypony: and about a billion dumb features submitted as pull requests

14:15:43 mircea_popescu: fluffypony, you can't merge ltc with atc, one's scrypt

14:34:31 danielpbarron: when i first started sending ascii armored blocks in gmail, they would alter some of it so it wasn't valid on the other end; sometimes because it would try to translate it, and sometimes it would just randomly remove a space or line return

14:39:53 mircea_popescu: this is usually the result of mediocre brains strained through the us college system. they end up with the expectation that any conceptual category has a practical counterpart.

14:40:05 mircea_popescu: and so there IS such a thing as "start-ups" in the same sense there actually is a thing called new york.

14:40:11 mircea_popescu: second off, and much more worrisome, the bizarre notion that there's safety in banality, to wit, that one can't fuck up by doing what "everyone" is doing.

14:40:23 mircea_popescu: this is exactly counter to what a startup is even for. this is ibm think.

14:40:31 mircea_popescu: there's simply no way he ends up any other way than bleeding in a ditch somewhere, with a pilum in his penis.

14:40:48 mircea_popescu: oviously in real reality start-ups are not the derps that go to "start-up dinners", but exactly the guys that don't

14:41:28 mircea_popescu: and similarly, start-ups aren't the guys that do what everyone else does, but exactly the guys that don't.

15:00:10 fluffypony: true

15:00:27 fluffypony: despite what u-sage usagi thinks, I'm clearly a shitty scammer

15:00:32 fluffypony: I need to up my scamgame

15:00:40 mircea_popescu: princessnell, as in too many duke grads unemployed to the point you get idjits a la tucker max writing "novels" and then moving on to "financial advicering" ?

15:01:39 princessnell: that's the spectacle. then there's the masses of subprime borrowers who went to shit tier law schools and now work as glorified file clerks at an hourly wage.

15:01:59 mircea_popescu: but my point was not about the direct practical application

15:02:14 mircea_popescu: my point is more that if you aspire to not be fucking stupid, pretty much the best avenue in the us colleges today is law.

15:02:55 mircea_popescu: granted this doesn't justify the tuition. but then again i've yet to meet the person that studied law and was worse for the wear for it.

15:02:59 princessnell: why do you think that?

15:03:04 mircea_popescu: which one

15:03:04 princessnell: ah

15:04:06 princessnell: "the best avenue" idk i'm biased but i'd have to go with economics or math or even logic/philosophy

15:04:25 mircea_popescu: there's nobody aliv ein the us qualified to teach philosophy to any degree.

15:04:35 princessnell: "studying the law" here = "memorizing administrative case law"

15:04:44 mircea_popescu: math is a prime tool of making one stupid, even in sane places (such as the soviet union)

15:04:51 mircea_popescu: ya well not that.

15:05:39 princessnell: point is i think on the whole the fields i mentioned equip you with better mental models than most law programs

15:05:44 mircea_popescu: i suppose the start-up approach to studying law in the us is getting a small apt close to the campus of a good law school and fucking all the older profs for free.

15:06:00 mircea_popescu: rent way cheaper than tuition, results way better than degree,

15:06:04 mircea_popescu: more fun all through.

15:06:25 mircea_popescu: well, we may be talking at cross purposes, let me try and model the difference.

15:06:30 princessnell: ha. but then you don't get a sheepskin.

15:07:09 mircea_popescu: suppose there's a land, and under this land water table, and above names of places.

15:10:39 gribble: thickasthieves was last seen in #bitcoin-assets 2 days, 1 hour, 15 minutes, and 18 seconds ago: <ThickAsThieves> lol

15:10:45 princessnell: what is it about law itself that you think leads people to not fucking stupidity

15:10:45 fluffypony: mircea_popescu: was a prefix to a thought ;)

15:11:11 Mats_cd03: imo physics is the most valuable

15:11:19 mircea_popescu: princessnell, it can;t ever be right.

15:11:34 mircea_popescu: Mats_cd03, has a good point, physics i agree is very very close. for exactly the same reason

15:11:39 mircea_popescu: physics can also never be right.

15:11:50 Mats_cd03: reasoning from first principles and so forth

15:13:36 mircea_popescu: bitcoinpete: mike_c: didn't know that about altcoin? i don't know why i thought it was a costlier project << nah, thickasthieves was running lean at the time :D

15:14:00 princessnell: i think that's right but i unfortunately don't think that's the approach that us law schools take. anyways i deal a lot with law through economics so i can have it all.

15:14:36 mircea_popescu: yeah that's the thing, it never goes away anyway, so...

15:16:22 mircea_popescu: "BitFury Group Ltd. last week secured one of the largest rounds of funding in the bitcoin sector, bringing in $20 million."

15:16:29 mircea_popescu: say what you will, the press doth learn.

15:18:09 mircea_popescu: "and expects $210 million in revenue for this year, on $120 million in EBITDA, Mr. Kikvadze said"

15:18:14 mircea_popescu: !up jm123

15:22:36 mircea_popescu: where are you bleeding half your bottom line ?

15:22:56 mike_c: company parties are expensive.

15:23:05 mircea_popescu: no but srsly, what the fuck else is there

15:23:15 mike_c: salaries!

15:23:28 mircea_popescu: 90mn in salaries ?

15:23:58 mircea_popescu: its a fucking start-up, they didn't hear of stock options in georgia ?

15:24:01 fluffypony: mike_c: Mining Equipment Present Value: $120mn. Mining Equipment Future Value: $120mn.

15:24:17 mircea_popescu: lol

15:24:19 mike_c: well, they are talking about cash flow not balance sheet, so capex i guess

15:24:40 mircea_popescu: uh.

15:24:44 mircea_popescu: wait.

15:24:59 mike_c: capex counts against income, no?

15:25:02 mircea_popescu: dude that article could have been worse written

15:25:13 mircea_popescu: but it's not directly obvious how. who the fuck does wsj serve these days anyway ?

15:25:25 mircea_popescu: obviously not people with even 1 year's worth of cc business.

15:25:34 mike_c: you missed the one from financial times that said SD raised *10 million* btc in their ipo

15:26:03 mircea_popescu: i ddin't miss the part where th sec dutifully cribbed the mpex numbers from fraudsters.

15:27:01 fluffypony: "IPO: want to raise half of bitcoins to ever exist. plz apply here."

15:27:20 mike_c: not to mention more than existed at the time.

15:27:25 mircea_popescu: fluffypony, at the time there were about 9.5mn in total in existence, of which ~1mn still locked as today

15:27:27 mircea_popescu: so... yeah.

15:27:39 fluffypony: heh

15:28:39 mircea_popescu: it would help if the people covering the most important thing happening in the world these years would be at leas tconversant in its basicsa

15:29:27 mircea_popescu: mike_c, i guess the sane construction here is they're paying about 100mn to the various manuf etc to make their chips, and they expect to mine 200mn worth of btc

15:29:42 mircea_popescu: seems a scary tight margin put in those terms, but who knows.

15:31:02 mircea_popescu: also seems they have no intention to even try doing amortisation accounting on the mining rigs

15:32:00 mike_c: well, depreciation. amortization is for non-real things.

15:34:32 mircea_popescu: hm

15:34:50 mircea_popescu: mike_c, so how are miners real things

15:35:16 mike_c: physical machines seem like a tangible asset

15:35:34 mircea_popescu: they indeed seem that way.

15:35:38 mircea_popescu: but why would they be ?

15:35:42 benkay: remember the conversation about the s.mg server?

15:35:51 mircea_popescu: a dream machine made out of a block of obsidian is tangible too ?

15:35:57 mircea_popescu: benkay, no ?

15:36:19 benkay: there was a minor dust-up over the semantics of renting v owning.

15:36:26 mircea_popescu: aa that yes.

15:36:39 mircea_popescu: mike_c, consider one of the safeguards is used and bricks a generation of asics.

15:36:46 mircea_popescu: they're just as tangible now than before, what are they worth ?

15:36:50 mike_c: nothing.

15:36:57 mircea_popescu: this seems to me to fly in the face of the ~fundamental~ point of tangibility

15:37:10 mircea_popescu: granted that the form of it favours your interpretation

15:37:24 mike_c: tangible assets are always overstated in value though

15:37:29 mircea_popescu: but all in all this is a fine example of why i said in the past that bitcoin fucks everything up. it ruined the notion of bonds similarly.

15:37:37 benkay: i had a hilarious experience last night

15:37:49 benkay: some noob was all fired to undercut a regular on the local btc circuit

15:37:56 benkay: make some dollars

15:38:14 benkay: opened his PHONE WALLET to discover that due to its dependency on the blockchain API he was SHIT OUT OF BITCOINS.

15:39:02 benkay: it was awesome. much lectures on understanding what the fuck you're playing with and how it's not a fucking toy were dispensed.

16:11:51 danielpbarron: "i'm all out of cake"

16:12:26 benkay: there are just so many ways to do it, though mike_c

16:12:54 mike_c: and why are you changing the rate? because the guy is gay? doesn't work.

16:13:06 benkay: changing what rate? each customer only sees their own quote

16:13:17 benkay: unless of course you're publishing prices

16:13:19 benkay: for custom work

16:20:14 mircea_popescu: discrimination can't be illegal.

16:21:15 mircea_popescu: danielpbarron, it will be argued that it is in fact discriminatory on the racist presumption that it disproportionately affects black customers, as if they absolutely have to have black figurines on their wedding cake.

16:21:48 mircea_popescu: which is why all this nonsense is so funny, all the racism involved in the arguments against discrimination.

16:22:55 mike_c: danielpbarron: you are trying to be cute with the rules, but that is just bullshit. why do you have the rule against black figurines? because you hate blacks.

16:24:53 danielpbarron: nobody is entitled to the service of having a wedding cake made for them

16:25:02 mike_c: "so what" is that a lot of people don't find racism/sexism/homophobia something to simply be ignored.

16:25:25 mike_c: because then you end up with half your country owning slaves.

16:28:43 davout: asciilifeform: i guess it's not really comparable (we have that too in france, you need to be dressed up to get into nightclubs), thing is, the "dressed-up" criteria is based on measurable things that are laid out beforehand, not on whether oyu like or dislike someone

16:29:50 davout: asciilifeform: yeah but it's measurable and not based on *who* wears the clothing

17:01:26 Naphex: i don't

17:01:28 Naphex: other people do

17:02:30 mircea_popescu: mike_c, i dunno dood, maybe you don't like the ingredients that have to be used to make it be black.

17:02:30 Naphex: i like bitcoins:D

17:02:47 mircea_popescu: it's such nonsenbse this, that your particular meaning is somehow part of objects now.

17:03:02 mike_c: not part of objects, part of behavior.

17:03:05 mircea_popescu: every culture is free to create its own set of names for the constellations wtf.

17:03:44 chetty: hey they can even draw new ones if they like, dont change the stars

17:03:52 mircea_popescu: mike_c, you against flag burning too ?

17:04:14 mike_c: no

17:04:19 mircea_popescu: so legt me get this straight

17:04:34 mircea_popescu: if i make two paper figurines, one black, one red-white aqnd burn both

17:04:41 mircea_popescu: your bp is going up over a selective subset of this ?

17:05:23 mike_c: thinking..

17:05:32 mircea_popescu: "behaviour" is a cop out. the tendency is to put meaning into objects, which is a task for they who've hunted snipes successfully.

17:07:02 mike_c: some people "hate americans" and act accordingly. I think this is retarded, but it doesn't upset me. some people "hate homos" and act accordingly, yet this does upset me.

17:07:20 mike_c: perhaps this is inconsistent.

17:07:32 Naphex: well i hate people who hate animals

17:07:36 Naphex: and act accordingly

17:07:51 Naphex: and i act accordingly when i see people acting accordingly to hating animals

17:07:53 danielpbarron: <+mike_c> well, relatively serious. is there some other reason you would refuse to use black figurines? << there needn't be any other reason; is it my business or not?

17:08:01 mircea_popescu: it goes much deeper than that mike_c. some years ago, in the days of the johnny cash, trolls burned the flag much to the dismay of the right "silent majority", which was mocked by the progressive left.

17:08:21 mircea_popescu: meanwhile that progressive left has ossified into a "silent majority", and... well... trolls are burning black men much to their display.

17:08:32 mircea_popescu: if this isn't a sad exercise into becoming everything you've hated about the stupidity of your parents

17:08:35 mircea_popescu: i dunno what would be.

17:09:38 mike_c: so what's your point? that I shouldn't care about other people's idiocy? or is it that it isn't stupid to be racist/homophobic.

17:09:41 mircea_popescu: at any raqte, the notion that anyone burned the flag "because they hated america" was so fucking ridiculojus back then

17:09:47 BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: You just might win the Halep bet

17:09:52 mircea_popescu: quite obviously everyone did it to piss off the people who get pissed off by these things

17:10:07 mircea_popescu: mike_c, my point is that you can't pretend like meaning is immanent. it's not.

17:10:15 mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo, W00t

17:10:57 danielpbarron: why is racism always lumped in with hating homosexuals, and why is hating homosexuals lumped in with homophobia? I'm not afraid of them, lol

17:10:59 mike_c: but there often is meaning. flag burning is dumb. but refusing service based on race/gay/sex does have meaning.

17:11:03 mircea_popescu: so she's going to 4ever be remember as that nigger that didn't need em to have em :D

17:11:34 BingoBoingo: I mean she's now two wins away from the trophy or whatever the fuck they play over.

17:13:22 mike_c: 100 people go lynch a black guy. yes, 20 of them only did it because of peer pressure, but 80 of them did do it because they hate/fear/whatever blacks.

17:13:32 danielpbarron: "you better at least pretend to like gays.. OR ELSE."

17:13:34 mike_c: that doesn't mean there was no meaning to any of it.

17:13:52 mircea_popescu: mike_c, it means you can't count on it tho.

17:14:10 mircea_popescu: do people killing rats hate rats for that matter ?

17:14:16 mike_c: sure, i can't count it. but fuck those 20 guys who did it for dumb reasons too.

17:14:20 mircea_popescu: like say an exterminator.

17:14:58 danielpbarron: exterminators probably love rats

17:15:00 chetty: haha well if you live in DC rat killing is not allowed

17:15:04 mike_c: bad analogy. killing rats and/or manuls means nothing.

17:15:11 mircea_popescu: oic

17:15:21 mircea_popescu: anbd you get to decide which objects carry meanin and which don't and what it is ?

17:15:29 mircea_popescu: what are you, like the mp of creation ?

17:15:43 mike_c: what's the other option? you don't get to assign meaning to anything?

17:15:50 mike_c: "i'm not god, so whatever"

17:15:51 mircea_popescu: you get to do it for yourself,

17:15:58 mircea_popescu: leave some space for the rest of the world.

17:18:27 mike_c: sure, like you left some space for romanians by leaving. you also wrote a blog post telling them they suck on the way out.

17:18:37 mircea_popescu: god help us if i happen to think xmj is stupid and xmj happens to think i shouldn't happen to think that. what's that gonna yield, a law against thinking xmjs are stupi ? enacted by ycombinator ?

17:18:47 mircea_popescu: this is why there shouldn't be a greater power than a baker in the first placre.

17:19:04 xmj: what is wrong with mircea_popescu

17:19:08 mircea_popescu: mike_c, i told them they suck while there, too. you don;t know about it because i told THEM

17:19:09 xmj: he's deluded.

17:19:27 xmj: 27 today.

17:19:35 midnightmagic: happy birthday

17:19:44 mike_c: hehe. i think we are talking about limits on freedom. you think people should be free to be racist/homophobic. i'm not sure i agree.

17:20:12 xmj: oh i do agree with that.

17:20:30 xmj: pankkake: i think mircea_popescu is stupid for thinking i'm stupid for describing reality as it is.

17:20:37 mircea_popescu: by the time there's laws directing the proper behaviour in bakeries the discussion as to whether the state failed or succeedded is moot

17:20:40 xmj: go work for a few venture capital-funded startups.

17:20:45 xmj: you'll see what i mean.

17:22:43 xmj: Naphex: Obviously.

17:22:51 Naphex: no matter what lean mean strategy you pull

17:22:52 pankkake: yes, that's what it seems

17:23:04 Naphex: and also, storing private data on hypervisors you don't control

17:23:06 Naphex: makes it insecure

17:23:07 Naphex: period

17:23:16 Naphex: so thats that with that argument

17:23:19 pankkake: can't we just stay meta?

17:23:22 xmj: Naphex: case in point: all startups here in estonia i've heard of do not buy hardware but use aws/rackspace/...

17:23:36 Naphex: xmj: and that is in no way a good thing

17:23:44 Naphex: they may do that, they may thing its correct

17:23:45 mircea_popescu: lol looks like Naphex got his wish

17:23:48 xmj: AWS is a given in many orgs, rule of thumb is the costs will be one employee.

17:23:48 Naphex: but it is not

17:24:23 Naphex: why not do everything yourself?

17:24:38 chetty: I think I just got a new curse word - consensus

17:24:43 xmj: Naphex: because it's not part of the "core business" and you don't get seed-funded to do that.

17:24:52 xmj: in other words.. don't ask me

17:24:55 xmj: ask their COOs

17:25:02 asciilifeform: wait was someone seriously arguing for the merits of 'cloud' crapola ?!

17:25:45 xmj: i could pull numbers out of my ass

21:28:55 fluffypony: "I know most of you scoff at the idea of storing BTC on Coinbase, but I am not nearly as technologically inclined as most of you. Each storage suggestion I read looks to me like this:

21:28:55 fluffypony: 1. Download armory and Electrum and run armory from an offline underground bunker.

21:28:56 fluffypony: 2. double encrypt using Eorepadaeuium with 4 USB drives running Linux UEc.3f3.c2q1

21:28:56 fluffypony: 3. backup with Efekjwsf and wefkjlfe + qt and create a public key, private key, and semi-private key.

21:28:56 fluffypony: 4. print private key and public key, but not semi-private key. Laminate printed copies and store in a vault along with 3 of the 4 USB drives. But be sure not to run EFkjlwef foeropwerk.

21:28:57 fluffypony: 5. Use a submarine to bury the vault in the ocean.

21:28:58 fluffypony: 6. A hacker who is %1000 times smarter than you is watching your every move and will steal all your bitcoin if you slip up.

21:28:59 fluffypony: More near computer illiterate people like be are going to be buying BTC, and Coinbase seems like the safer and simpler option."

21:45:19 mircea_popescu: mike_c: asciilifeform: do you know if this is true? "EC-based keys are just as secure as RSA keypairs" << nobody fucking knpows if this is true, this is the mn dollar question in practical cryptography.

21:45:49 mike_c: c'mon, you know ascii knows and just won't tell

21:45:52 mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo, im not one to give last night's calves black eyes, but.... as you say, loing backlog.

21:47:00 BingoBoingo: I imagine a cycle stabilizing where MP shames securities scammer, SEC scoops them up months later.

21:47:22 BingoBoingo: Then in about 10 years the "community" notices this is a thing

21:47:36 Naphex: so why not turn that depratment and review into a service

21:47:39 Naphex: and do a bitsec

21:48:04 Naphex: after 1 year sell seals :))

21:48:16 Apocalyptic: "nobody fucking knpows if this is true, this is the mn dollar question in practical cryptography." wait

21:48:16 Naphex: mpsec approved

21:48:50 Apocalyptic: is this the question "is the discrete logarithm problem as hard as the factorization problem" ?

21:49:54 Apocalyptic: cause if so it has been proved afaik

21:50:02 mircea_popescu: not exactly

21:50:32 mircea_popescu: Naphex, i don't really perceive the benefit.

21:50:48 Naphex: same thing only condensed

21:51:03 Naphex: maybe as an experiment, who knows the benefit

21:51:20 mircea_popescu: the problem with commodization is that it destroys quality.

21:51:25 Naphex: picking out the good from the bad should be a skill everyone has, but that ain't gonna happen

21:51:30 mike_c: Apocalyptic: there are also considerations around which curve you use. i believe certain curves are known to be weak.

21:51:31 Apocalyptic: mircea_popescu, how so ?

21:51:42 mircea_popescu: in general the fewer customers you have the better your product can be

21:51:43 Naphex: well you compress it, and let people act based on a rating

21:51:50 Naphex: they can optimize but have errors

21:51:58 Apocalyptic: mike_c, indeed, i'm talking in curves over GF(p), with p prime

21:52:07 Apocalyptic: mircea_popescu, Eric Bach wrote a paper about this

21:52:24 Apocalyptic: Bach proves: 1) If you can compute log. modulo $N$, you can factor $N$ 2) If you can factor $N$ and compute logs modulo each factor, then you can compute logs. modulo $N$

21:52:29 mircea_popescu: Apocalyptic, the question is more subtle than that. perhaps a better rendering would be "which of rsa, ec is more likely to have tiny pores we don't kjnow about"

21:52:35 mircea_popescu: such as a particularly easy to attack space etc.

21:52:45 Apocalyptic: but that's a different question

21:52:51 mircea_popescu: none of these considerations are wide berth issues such as bach's.

21:53:11 mircea_popescu: not that the result is unimportant, obv.

22:04:55 Apocalyptic: mircea, I see, my interpretation of "EC-based keys are just as secure as RSA keypairs" was different

22:05:20 mircea_popescu: Apocalyptic, "in the general case" versus "in any practical case"

22:05:41 Apocalyptic: indeed

22:11:47 Naphex: from lets say quantum computers

22:11:47 Naphex: thats why you do ECDH to factorize instead of just EC

22:11:47 Apocalyptic: ECDH isn't of big interest for bitcoin

22:11:48 Naphex: must've missed th epoint

22:11:49 Apocalyptic: ECDH is just a protocol for key exchange

22:11:49 punkman: ECDSA is what btc uses, ECDH is another thing

22:27:45 punkman: ;;tblb 3600

22:27:46 gribble: The expected time between blocks taking 1 hour and 0 seconds to generate is 1 week, 6 days, 21 hours, 13 minutes, and 54 seconds

22:28:01 dub: next, the first double spent virginity?

22:28:36 davout: the average human is the exact opposite of bitcoin

22:28:51 davout: has to wait at least 20 minutes before he can double spend

23:24:05 punkman: https://bitbook.ie/ is this new?

23:24:05 assbot: bitbook.ie | No-Fee Parimutuel Bitcoin Sports Betting

23:29:15 mike_c: css isn't as good as bitbet

23:29:28 punkman: https://bitbook.ie/make_bets/abf97e24-ded0-42bb-832d-669e275cfdc8#4498ba71-a61c-436b-be67-b3da4715069e this page is just awkward

23:29:32 assbot: bitbook.ie | No-Fee Parimutuel Bitcoin Sports Betting

23:30:07 davout: no fee = big red flag

23:30:26 punkman: davout, "It's too early to monetize, but when we do, it will probably be through ads or affiliate programs."

23:30:46 mike_c: uh

23:31:06 mike_c: oh, they mean they will be the affiliate for other people

23:31:12 davout: o so because affiliates

23:31:12 mike_c: in other words, ads.

23:31:29 davout: next

23:31:45 punkman: yeah because when you got a working gambling operation, you want to send people to other places

23:32:00 mike_c: maybe they would do well as a bitbet affiliate

23:39:23 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [AM100] 119 @ 0.00189152 = 0.2251 BTC [+] {4}

23:43:12 punkman: why is it that bitbet only does binary propositions?

23:43:34 punkman: tried the logs for previous discussion but couldn't locate

23:46:52 mike_c: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=27-11-2013#396301

23:53:44 punkman: so this bitbook guy is generating propositions automatically, and for some reason prefers to make N binary pools

23:53:53 punkman: seems retarded

23:54:14 mike_c: i wouldn't kill too many brain cells trying to figure it out.

23:55:21 punkman: how the fuck do you do parimutuel spread bets?

23:56:04 mike_c: same way.. just should be close to 50/50

23:56:57 mircea_popescu: <punkman> https://bitbook.ie/ is this new? << prolly npot.

23:56:57 assbot: bitbook.ie | No-Fee Parimutuel Bitcoin Sports Betting

23:57:36 mircea_popescu: <mike_c> maybe they would do well as a bitbet affiliate << worth a shot.

23:59:36 punkman: mircea_popescu: so what's the mindfuck with multi bets? I feel more mindfucked by trying to find N related bets
