00:00:31 mircea_popescu: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=03-07-2015#1184791 << it's not that far off, i was thinking g_l sounded a lot like a much younger rms.

00:00:31 assbot: Logged on 03-07-2015 00:07:59; trinque: asciilifeform: the thought actually was... "so emacs is a sort of masamune... lol!"

00:02:26 mircea_popescu: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=03-07-2015#1184817 << the loller of all time. when bitcoinj were making a 2nd implementation, the same crowd gnashed teeth about what a horribly bad and not good and dangerous and canned doom of an idea it is.

00:02:26 assbot: Logged on 03-07-2015 01:24:07; asciilifeform: meanwhile, in turdmeisterdom, http://bitcoinstats.com/irc/bitcoin-dev/logs/2015/07/03#l1435884599.0

00:02:51 mircea_popescu: now that usg finally arrayed enough ethereum shitfountains to imagine it can pull it off, the tune changed. and it changed mid sentence and full spin around.

00:03:41 *: mircea_popescu loses interest after six lines or so.

00:03:58 mircea_popescu: this is why i have people doing summaries of the shit, which summaries i generally do not read.

00:04:20 mircea_popescu: i dunno how or why it'd be worth anyone's time, outside of the perverse interests of entomologists etc.

00:05:12 mircea_popescu: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=03-07-2015#1184828 << speaking of which : a) you folk are gonna publish ips once the sync's done yes ? and b) bringing a seed up on nsa hardware this month maybe ?

00:05:12 assbot: Logged on 03-07-2015 01:27:53; asciilifeform: shinohai: mircea_popescu has one up

00:06:21 shinohai: on block 217340, will publish ip when synced fully

00:06:22 mircea_popescu: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=03-07-2015#1184841 << was an important milestone this. at least for my internals.

00:06:22 assbot: Logged on 03-07-2015 01:34:33; asciilifeform: all i can personally say about this is that it serves up (big fat surprise!) apparently correct blocks

00:06:28 mircea_popescu: shinohai great.

00:11:20 mircea_popescu: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=03-07-2015#1184908 << this is dubious. people failed to realise and walk away from us, why would they move away ever ?

00:11:20 assbot: Logged on 03-07-2015 01:54:30; decimation: if house always wins, people will realized and move on

00:14:28 mircea_popescu: nobody could distinguish its output from normal reddit functioning.

00:16:57 mircea_popescu: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=03-07-2015#1184982 << there is a difference between "reason to believe poses a threat" and "no reason to believe doens't pose a threat".

There was no reason to believe this person who had killed a police officer before was not posing a real threat."

00:17:22 mircea_popescu: this difference is a lot more marked than the subtle contortions the supreme court's been using these last years to rule in favour of unexamined hipsterism

00:26:47 assbot: Logged on 03-07-2015 13:37:30; decimation: oh no the reddit owners treat the tens of thousands of people that work for them for free as slaves!

00:26:51 mircea_popescu: fucktards srsly.

00:27:46 mircea_popescu: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=03-07-2015#1185164 << o has it ? mod6 you got any opinion on the subject ?

00:35:01 asciilifeform: (or rather, tx's issued by house.)

00:36:24 asciilifeform: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=03-07-2015#1186154 << l0l, short supply ?! most plentiful thing on planet3

00:36:24 assbot: Logged on 03-07-2015 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 ?

00:37:03 asciilifeform: doesn't sell very well on its own.

00:39:25 asciilifeform: ben_vulpes, mod6, mircea_popescu, et al: anybody interested in multiprocessorizing bitcoin sig check ?

00:39:33 asciilifeform: it'd be trivial

00:39:50 asciilifeform: (but afaik, no one has done it yet... why ?)

00:42:21 ben_vulpes: lol @ btc->sexprs, asciilifeform

00:42:45 asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=03-07-2015#1185338 << and the phf went & did

00:42:45 assbot: Logged on 03-07-2015 17:50:03; phf: i was exploring block storage format, so i wrote some lisp code to read blocks out of .dat in sequence or directly from dumpblock'ed file http://paste.lisp.org/+38JG. i'm not sure where i'm going with it, so i'm leaving it here for interested parties.

00:43:01 ben_vulpes: asciilifeform: blockchain->sexprs or ragel parser

00:43:07 asciilifeform: one of those beautiful magic momentz

00:43:12 asciilifeform: when i don't have to do a chore personally

00:43:48 ben_vulpes: leading any charge is risky and painful

00:44:55 ben_vulpes: muchas gracias for the hrdy link

00:45:01 asciilifeform: np

00:45:09 asciilifeform: save the thing somewhere (archive.today ?)

00:45:19 asciilifeform: i bet the linked turd is not long for this world

00:47:09 ben_vulpes: how does this thing even work

00:47:25 ben_vulpes: phf: ty for lisps

00:47:53 ben_vulpes: asciilifeform: that cutblock c util was very instructive, ty

00:48:20 ben_vulpes: phf: (v. instructive among other good things)

00:48:23 asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: could do an even shorter/sweeter bidirectional (!) version with 'binary-types' ( http://www.cliki.net/binary-types )

00:48:24 assbot: CLiki: Binary-types ... ( http://bit.ly/1JDFNZH )

00:48:56 asciilifeform: punkman: you gotta download the deps !

00:49:02 punkman: I did

00:49:08 ben_vulpes: aha that's really nifty.

00:49:18 ben_vulpes: asciilifeform: ^^

00:49:50 asciilifeform: punkman: your shell, for some reason, isn't seeing the install dir

00:49:58 asciilifeform: and tries to create bdb's 'include' in root

00:50:05 asciilifeform: whatcha building on ?

00:50:07 ben_vulpes: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=03-07-2015#1185122 << i grow curious about average hrs/user spent in eulora

00:50:10 ben_vulpes: of the active users.

00:50:13 phf: ben_vulpes: like asciilifeform said there are better approaches, but yw

00:50:16 punkman: some version of Mint

00:50:28 ben_vulpes: phf: well hey like i said instructive

00:50:36 asciilifeform: punkman: from here i can only conclude that your unixlike is braindamaged beyond repair!

00:50:39 asciilifeform: get a gentoo ?

00:50:51 asciilifeform: or what BingoBoingo or mod6 built on ?

00:52:54 phf: the general pattern is a bunch of read-* functions, that are all ultimately reduced to read-byte or read-sequence. the an (unsigned-byte 8) stream and return whatever datrastructure

00:53:08 phf: *they take

00:53:51 asciilifeform: it is nifty and very educational and mega-recommended to all students of the subject ^

00:55:15 punkman: I think the problem was I didn't have "realpath"

00:55:27 asciilifeform: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=03-07-2015#1185971 << wai wut, is kakobrekla now fearing gavinocalypse ?

00:55:27 assbot: Logged on 03-07-2015 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)

00:55:49 ben_vulpes: punkman: have you tried my a47.sh?

00:56:05 punkman: ben_vulpes: no

00:56:53 asciilifeform: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=03-07-2015#1186009 << a modern (vs. the infrared diode + mirror mat '80s kind) optic mouse is a pretty hefty computer by itself. complete with bugs

00:56:53 assbot: Logged on 03-07-2015 21:48:42; mircea_popescu: meh. what causes optic mice to acquire pointer jitter ?

00:57:08 asciilifeform: (there was a proggy posted some years ago to use one as a camera!)

01:01:30 asciilifeform: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=04-07-2015#1186157 << mega-classic, and was discussed here before. including the fact that later bombmeisters have added the necessary detail of bar of soap and photocell (fluoresces under xray, sets off secondary detonator)

01:05:17 asciilifeform: go, fix

01:06:10 punkman: !s photocell

01:06:11 assbot: 3 results for 'photocell' : http://s.b-a.link/?q=photocell

01:11:04 asciilifeform: phun phakt: you can't buy (new) halon fire extinguishers in usa, but you can get... freon (hcfc-123)

01:11:10 *: asciilifeform just unpacked a crate with one

01:13:21 asciilifeform: not cheap either. but you can still get! (until the envirowhiners get to it, too)

01:14:16 *: asciilifeform wonders what mircea_popescu keeps in his fire extinguisher

01:14:46 asciilifeform: (virgin tears? vodka ?)

01:15:22 *: trinque gets a funny feeling like he's watching a fast-forward replay of history itself whenever syncing a new blockchain

01:15:43 trinque: all the events which transpired which are marked by a particular transaction

01:15:52 asciilifeform: trinque: you're only ~really~ replaying history if you 'eatblock' from mircea_popescu's raw blkxxxxen

01:15:54 trinque: deedbot- fascinates me for precisely this reason

01:16:04 asciilifeform: otherwise you're merely reenacting history

01:16:10 trinque: good point

01:16:15 asciilifeform: like those folks who play out old battles with dummy rounds

01:17:12 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 55900 @ 0.00051544 = 28.8131 BTC [+] {2}

01:18:54 trinque: pulled the trigger on this one just to see whether it'd fire up and work, but yeah, I'll use mircea_popescu's node for the gcov run

01:19:12 asciilifeform: trinque: what's in your set ?

01:19:25 trinque: I am currently syncing from deedbot-'s node

01:19:33 asciilifeform: i meant, what patches

01:19:47 trinque: oh, I am using stator with no additional patches

01:19:51 trinque: which others should I apply?

01:20:05 asciilifeform: trinque: ought to suffice

01:20:17 asciilifeform: if you want 'dumpblock' and 'eatblock', those are not included in stator

01:20:20 asciilifeform: gotta apply manually

01:21:43 trinque: k

01:22:11 asciilifeform: they don't really do much good in a 'civilian' bitcoin node, though

01:22:14 asciilifeform: more for laboratory work.

01:30:21 decimation: asciilifeform: it's lulzy that they regulate the shit of out freon for hvac, but use in fire extinguishers?

01:31:09 decimation: seems like co2 would be useful for many situations

01:37:39 punkman: ok, stator compiled successfully I think, anyone wanna give me a node IP?

01:41:26 mod6: trinque: this may help you in your journey: http://thebitcoin.foundation/misc/stator-buildlog-wDumpBlockAndEatBlockApplied.txt

01:44:49 decimation: why do half the distros use it, others use readlink

01:48:22 trinque: mod6: thank you sir

01:48:33 trinque: I'm going to grab some food, then read up on gcov

01:56:58 mod6: ok cool

01:58:05 mod6: no prob

02:06:56 DanyAlos: Sorry for the sudden change of topic:

02:07:07 DanyAlos: I was looking for #bitcoin-assets on this search engine (http://irc.netsplit.de/channels), and realized that it is not listed. Is there any particular reason for not being there?

02:34:05 asciilifeform: decimation: co2 extinguishers, are, interestingly, very expensive (largely on account of their size. you need a great lot of it)

02:34:26 asciilifeform: also thermal shocks machinery

02:34:30 punkman: asciilifeform: it's working, good job on the stator

02:34:50 asciilifeform: punkman: it's an interim thing. still need to shoot glibc in the head

02:35:04 punkman: it complained about getaddrinfo, that's to be expected then?

02:35:21 asciilifeform: yes. but it never gets called in bitcoin

02:35:29 asciilifeform: (not in the dns-free variant)

02:35:43 punkman: yeah I tried to find it in the src, nothing there

02:35:51 asciilifeform: something in 'boost' theoretically can invoke it, or rather - gcc is too dumb to know that it will never happen

02:35:52 asciilifeform: so it whines

02:35:58 asciilifeform: and puts a null stub there

02:36:55 mats: DanyAlos: this channel has the flag +s, and so it is unlisted

02:43:21 decimation: I'm syncing static node with some random ip, to see if I get the same blkxxxx.dat results

02:43:31 decimation: one of them on mircea's list

02:44:23 asciilifeform: the hash list ?

02:44:31 decimation: no his fraudsters post

02:44:34 asciilifeform: ah

02:45:35 decimation: asciilifeform: did we do a thread on 'headers only' block data?

02:45:47 asciilifeform: mentioned on several occasions

02:45:55 decimation: it occurs to me that it would be useful to broadcast a digest of a block in addition to the actual block data

02:46:08 decimation: mainly for users on bandwidth constrained channels

02:46:11 asciilifeform: that'd be the header, no ?

02:46:17 decimation: I guess.

02:46:22 asciilifeform: node already has option of asking for those

02:46:26 asciilifeform: it is part of the protocol

02:46:35 decimation: ah, I will read the code

02:46:46 asciilifeform: what i think would be considerably more useful is a provision for 'programmable checkpoints'

02:46:49 decimation: For something like shortwave broadcast, this is what you would want

02:46:59 asciilifeform: that is, an ascii file similar to my sums.txt.gz

02:47:12 asciilifeform: signed with pgp, verified by user, dropped in .bitcoin

02:47:46 decimation: aye, that would be useful for a 'starter pak' node

02:47:50 DanyAlos: mats: Thx

02:48:06 decimation: one wonders why this hasn't been done already, seems an obvious fix to 'node takes forever to sync'

02:48:17 asciilifeform: won't make'em sync any faster

02:48:37 asciilifeform: but will discourage some of the more hamfisted kinds of shitgnomery

02:48:39 decimation: oh you just mean the sums

02:48:41 asciilifeform: aha

02:48:53 decimation: yeah okay, that would be useful for double-checking chain integrity yes

02:49:40 decimation: for the headers thing, I'm imagining a scenario where someone is waiting for a transaction to clear

02:49:53 decimation: it would be useful to know when a new block is found, so you can ask your peers for a copy

02:50:58 asciilifeform: what's wrong with the old-fashioned 'inv' ?

02:51:45 decimation: I suppose if a peer is available, you could do that. but then you are only trusting one node's say

02:52:08 decimation: imagine three frequencies with three different nodes around the world, all with agreement on headers

02:56:05 decimation: at any rate, I'm imagining ways to sew parachutes before they are needed

02:56:36 asciilifeform: when else.

02:58:30 decimation: unfortunately with the effective bandwidth needed by the current blockchain makes global synchronization quite expensive

02:58:47 decimation: and internet-dependent

03:00:15 decimation: weird, the last four blocks had no transactions

03:00:25 asciilifeform: this may well be one of those things that can be made 'as simple as possible but not simpler'

03:01:24 asciilifeform: <decimation> weird, the last four blocks had no transactions << betcha somebody's playing with the 'tx selector' thing

03:01:44 asciilifeform: and botched horribly

03:02:02 decimation: I guess as long as they find a block that matches difficulty it will be valid

03:02:35 decimation: it would sure make it simpler to devise a big asic machine to find hashes if it doesn't need to bother with transactions

03:03:02 asciilifeform: not really

03:03:20 decimation: although you would give up on fees

03:03:22 asciilifeform: given the merkle tree thing, tx's don't really add to the load

03:04:04 decimation: ah yeah good point

03:04:15 asciilifeform: but it would stand to reason that miners will eventually exert more tx fee pressure

03:04:23 asciilifeform: perhaps this is already happening.

03:04:56 decimation: the big blocks are running nearly a mb or so

03:05:00 asciilifeform: at any rate, various folks have mined empties before. afaik, it is not publicly known precisely why.

03:05:37 asciilifeform: decimation: bozos are stuffing'em full of garbage tx, in an attempt to prop up gavinism

03:15:58 decimation: asciilifeform: I've tried printing such things before, even on a big plotter the results are disappointing

03:16:05 asciilifeform: how come ?

03:16:20 decimation: plotter is usually limited to 4 ft rolls I think

03:16:28 decimation: so you gotta make multiple passes

03:16:47 asciilifeform: local printery has 4ft inkjets

03:17:11 decimation: sure, but you gotta spend time massaging the graph into something legible even at that size

03:17:21 decimation: what comes out of 'dot' tends to be fucktarded with complex graphs

03:18:01 asciilifeform: so far i'm utterly failing to even get 'codeviz' to build.

03:18:11 asciilifeform: it seems to insist on downloading an ancient gcc and fails

03:18:24 asciilifeform: mod6, ben_vulpes ^^^ who wants to try

03:18:36 decimation: to be clear, my experience is mainly with feeding dot such things, not from codeviz

03:18:46 asciilifeform: i want the fucking callgraph

03:18:48 asciilifeform: on my wall

03:18:57 asciilifeform: tired of looking at the thing through a keyhole

03:19:09 decimation: I think you can massage valgrind to dump callgraph

03:19:22 asciilifeform: want static callgraph

03:19:57 mod6: <+asciilifeform> mod6, ben_vulpes ^^^ who wants to try << i might be able to give it a go later this weekend ... maybe.

04:13:36 ben_vulpes: "However, this also means they're not checking the new BIP66 rule, and are now mining invalid blocks because of it.

04:15:44 mircea_popescu: can they make up their mind or something ?

04:18:08 mircea_popescu: "we just sittin' here noddin'"

04:18:58 ben_vulpes: Bitcoin 0.5.3 is the canonical reference implementation. If a fork occurs and one side validates on the 0.5.3 codebase while the other does not, the chain that validates under 0.5.3 is the only valid chain.

04:19:02 mircea_popescu: Bitcoin Core (after 0.10.0) rejects these invalid blocks, but a lot of other stuff doesn't. SPV Bitcoinj wallets do no validation what-so-ever, blindly following the longest chain. blockchain.info doesn't appear to do validation as well; who knows what else? <<

04:19:17 mircea_popescu: anyway, todd is right. the only way this affects us is that we don't really give much of a shit.

04:19:22 ben_vulpes: mod6 if you feel compelled to elaborate on this, go ahead.

04:19:37 ben_vulpes: frantic action is for the impotent.

04:19:53 mircea_popescu: i have nfi how the power rangers imagine they'll manage a hardfork when they can't as much as get a "relevant support" softwork that's fairly uncontroversial.

04:20:23 ben_vulpes: i've not yet accepted this soft/hardfork duality.

04:20:29 asciilifeform: ^

04:20:38 ben_vulpes: things either validate under 0.5.whatever or they don't.

04:20:41 mircea_popescu: well, any people can at any time decide to narrow the rules. this makes some sense.

04:20:41 decimation: they claim this is a softfork

04:20:47 mircea_popescu: hard fork is enlarging the rules.

04:20:54 mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes all thios would validate under .5

04:20:57 decimation: actually I think this is gonna be fine on 0.5

04:21:05 mircea_popescu: the idea is they don't want to see some stuff that validates anymore

04:21:10 mircea_popescu: this is no skin off my back, who cares.

04:21:15 ben_vulpes: too bad, fuck them.

04:21:15 mod6: <+ben_vulpes> Bitcoin 0.5.3 is the canonical reference implementation. If a fork occurs and one side validates on the 0.5.3 codebase while the other does not, the chain that validates under 0.5.3 is the only valid chain. << I have nothing further to add to this at this time.

04:32:58 mircea_popescu: nah, the "we'll move to this new db system one schmuck that gofer'd coffee at google wrote with his chest hairs and nobody tested in any way" was the stupidest sahit

04:33:10 ben_vulpes: meaning adopt the power ranger braindamage again?

04:33:29 mircea_popescu: but the "we'll make wallet a plaintext file" and the "we'll target windows" and the "you know what's better than boost ? qt!" were pretty epic turn points too

04:49:44 mod6: otherwise we had issues on 168`001 iirc

04:49:58 *: mod6 doublechecks the SoBAs

05:22:20 mod6: thanks ben_vulpes

05:22:41 mod6: i put it out there on derp-media too

05:26:45 decimation: I would also note that the bitcoind github commits and comments lie about the IsSuperMajority machine. They say that the mandatory rejection won't take effect until 95% of the blocks are incremented - but in fact it's only 950

05:28:53 decimation: 950 out of the last 1000 blocks

05:29:11 decimation: hardly 'consensus' in view of the 363000 block history of bitcoin

05:32:44 decimation: which amounts to one week of 'voting window'

05:49:38 midnightmagic: decimation: 1000 blocks is a couple percent of all work done ever on the entire blockchain since inception, and the current hashrate could rewrite the entire history up to something like august 2014 in somewhere close to the span of time that non-vote took place over, times a very small number. :( unfortunately.

05:50:03 ben_vulpes: oh look

05:50:10 decimation: this machine is braindamaged in my opinion

05:50:22 ben_vulpes: a midnightmagic

05:50:24 decimation: at any rate, it's not like you couldn't jam it by changing nversion to an arbitrary value

05:50:33 ben_vulpes: decimation: srsly.

05:50:42 ben_vulpes: magic numbers and magic thinking.

05:50:51 decimation: to spite, you could even pick a value between 4 and MAX_INT randomly

05:50:54 ben_vulpes: another value for derpfiguration.

05:50:58 ben_vulpes: euhue

05:51:19 midnightmagic: i'm just saying that it sounds like a little bit in comparison to both time, and integerial block height, but actual work-wise it a significant chunk. again, very unfortunately.

05:51:26 phf: ha, stator build on openbsd i386

05:51:49 ben_vulpes: midnightmagic: this is a basic feature of integrals and curves.

05:52:29 ben_vulpes: lol 'integerial'

05:52:48 decimation: midnightmagic: the "amount of work" argument utterly fails to impress

05:53:19 decimation: also, it's probably not going to be true in a year or two as 14 nm asics fan out and become barely economic

05:54:09 midnightmagic: that is the inverse of what will happen as more-efficient mining equipment arrives.

05:54:53 decimation: also, your argument would also be true if nMajorityWindow=10000 or 100000

05:55:59 ben_vulpes: decimation is ready to bet against diff increases?

05:56:16 decimation: I think it's likely to level out in the coming year or two, maybe longer

05:56:23 ben_vulpes: midnightmagic is ready to work more student exercises?

05:56:43 decimation: unless someone can tell me exactly how they are going to 'get efficient'

05:56:58 ben_vulpes: efficiency is not a prerequisite for fab runs.

05:57:13 decimation: no, but it is for profitability in the face of non-zero electric rates

05:57:45 ben_vulpes: since when has midnightmagic's employer given a shit about profitability?

05:58:28 midnightmagic: ben_vulpes: #trollfail. That sort of thing doesn't work on me, especially when it comes from someone like you.

05:58:47 ben_vulpes: lol and yet you bit

05:59:20 midnightmagic: ben_vulpes: You would call a bite any response. That is the fundamental nature of #trollfail.

06:00:02 ben_vulpes: y'ever hear the line: "don't feed the trolls"?

06:00:05 midnightmagic: Regardless, a 1000-block window is not unreasonable if one accepts that mining hashpower is the vote that counts.

06:00:14 decimation: I don't accept it.

06:00:33 decimation: nor does this argument hold for 1000, because the same argument can be made for 50000

06:01:05 ben_vulpes: i don't accept it either.

06:01:54 ben_vulpes: midnightmagic: you make this mistake of letting the plants control the conversation. "what's the right magic number of blocks to signal fork acceptance?" answer: there isn't. there is only the long-term behavior of the network.

06:02:13 midnightmagic: Correct. I am saying your complaint about it being unreasonable is illogical by any measure of the mining work done: there *is* no other meaningful window, or measurement, of the bitcoin network without shifting to PoS or DPoS. But if you want to do that, fork bitshares.

06:02:37 ben_vulpes: this moronic 'acceptance-in-blockchain' algo doesn't work, because hashpower can revert and rewrite an arbitrarily-lengthed blockchain.

06:03:05 midnightmagic: ben_vulpes: On that at least, we agree. I agree with that: the current hashrate is as illegitimate as a vote of private keys would be in determining a softfork. What else is there?

06:03:07 ben_vulpes: 's just no window.

06:03:19 ben_vulpes: there's* just no window.

06:03:59 ben_vulpes: just the network. that, only that, no more, no less.

06:04:20 midnightmagic: Thus, backing up further, there is the legitimacy of BIP66 at all. If it is not legitimate, we have a consensus code failure every time openssl decides they want to change behaviour.

06:04:41 ben_vulpes: midnightmagic: art thou familiar with the 1.0.1g issue?

06:04:57 decimation: you are subjugating human judgement to unthinking machinery - this can never be reasonable

06:05:12 ben_vulpes: openssl changed behavior. bitcoin did not.

06:06:01 decimation: midnightmagic: who is holding a gun to your head, requiring you to update openssl?

06:06:14 midnightmagic: I'm familiar with the DER-encoding change they made, and I'm aware of, if not familiar with, every major bug in openssl since 2001 or so. Could I draw a line between releases that had bugs and releases that fixed them? No. Not even close.

06:06:56 decimation: why isn't anyone seriously attempting to extract the open-ssl code paths used by bitcoin?

06:06:56 ben_vulpes: bitcoind's built with openssl versions after 1.0.1g don't sync.

06:07:17 ben_vulpes: this, i gather, is news to you.

06:07:22 ben_vulpes: bitcoinds*

06:07:27 midnightmagic: decimation: Nobody, of course. Then we go back to static builds and what happens when an actual bug hits and the fork is so old that the fix doesn't backport? How divergent are we willing to accept?

06:07:44 midnightmagic: lol. No, it's not news to me. Yes, I already knew that.

06:08:16 decimation: midnightmagic: the cure to that problem is not forcing changes of an uncertain nature, but to gain certainty in the codebase

06:09:18 decimation: why wouldn't we want a static bitcoind that is correct for all time?

06:09:29 ben_vulpes: midnightmagic: you were probably just on the cusp of killing hitler too.

06:11:14 ben_vulpes: <decimation> why wouldn't we want a static bitcoind that is correct for all time? << we do. midnightmagic does not.

06:11:21 midnightmagic: well, then we have the forking risk I mentioned above: what happens when the openssl people make a fix or the internet finds a bug in the component that we depend on? If we sit on 0.9.8 or whatever the version was before those idiots got their hands on it and started adding malicious exploits, what happens?

06:11:41 decimation: understand the code, make sure it doesn't happen

06:11:55 decimation: pretending like others are there to solve your problems seems like a poor approach

06:11:57 midnightmagic: ben_vulpes: You can keep guessing what I mean without actually asking me, but you're no less wrong.

06:12:26 ben_vulpes: decimation: no but you see we need to slurp the spitoon because if we don't something terrifying that we can't reason about won't happen!

06:13:03 ben_vulpes: midnightmagic: no less wrong than what now?

06:13:25 midnightmagic: I'm not pretending that; I'm explicitly saying, divergence implies there is no reason to even *use* openssl at that point. strip out the components, use them, skip openssl entirely, and, I guess, trust in your ability to monitor the progenitor of your codebase for bugs that *explicitly affect your consensus-critical code*.

06:13:58 decimation: agreed, except "consenus-critical" means "compatible with what satoshi wrote" in my book

06:14:04 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 159666 @ 0.00052679 = 84.1105 BTC [+] {5}

06:14:05 midnightmagic: or, do what sipa did and write a secp256k1 lib because the openssl people don't give a shit they're wrecking dependencies.

06:14:44 midnightmagic: because, like I said, I think some people in there appear to be adding exploitable code with absurd frequency.

06:14:48 decimation: again, nobody is forcing anybody use a version of openssl they don't want to use.

06:16:19 midnightmagic: ehh. satoshi's code, bugs and all. we could also stick with bdb and accept the quirks like the old accidental fork post-leveldb.

06:16:46 midnightmagic: .. which appears to have been a gavin/hearn originated bug.

06:16:48 ben_vulpes: it's all well and good to say "strip out the components", i just don't buy that that's possible.

06:16:59 decimation: his code sucks, I don't deny, but it's the closest thing to a spec that we have

06:20:50 midnightmagic: For a while you were writing reddit posts and qntra articles and all sorts of stuff. Half the time you got Gavin himself "derping" as you put it, in your comments.

06:21:03 decimation: well, it wasn't me doing any of this stuff

06:21:09 midnightmagic: Or coming in here and randomly arguing with you.

06:25:10 decimation: I don't really read reddit or twitter, but I recall that gavin captiulated, more or less

06:26:14 decimation: who where is?

06:26:18 ben_vulpes: midnightmagic: reddit? twitter? d'you want to roll medium and perhaps bitcointalk.org into that as well?

06:26:42 midnightmagic: You guys *heads* were exploding in here, and then when "the rest" of the bitcoin-core devs took up the flag you all went quiet again. wtf?

06:26:52 ben_vulpes: for a grand coup of shit-as-what-don't-matter?

06:27:24 ben_vulpes: so we won, and you want to 3/10 troll on the topic?

06:27:32 midnightmagic: I presumed your head would explode if I mentioned forbes (due to its primary bitcoin author being a douchebag), or mainstream media.

06:27:56 midnightmagic: He didn't capitulate.

06:29:09 decimation: if bitcoin core devs agree with what people here are writing, why don't they venture here to make their case?

06:29:28 midnightmagic: .. why would they do that?

06:29:33 ben_vulpes: moreover, if the decisions made here trickle down to "bitcoin core", why should we pursue them further?

06:30:03 decimation: umm, why would we give a shit about what they are saying otherwise? I donno bro, you're the one accusing here.

06:30:41 midnightmagic: Besides, you went quiet well before he "capitulated".

06:30:57 ben_vulpes: why bang on about points that are already settled?

06:31:10 midnightmagic: I guess that answers my question.

06:31:15 midnightmagic: fair enough.

06:31:45 decimation: all I can say, for myself, is that folks write stuff on this channel, I would read; comment - as would others

06:32:09 midnightmagic: I grok.

06:42:15 thestringpuller: midnightmagic: cause I fucked up my shoulder being on the computer all day at work so I read comic books instead after work.

06:42:18 midnightmagic: Yes, I saw all that. I mean *outwardly* quiet.

06:43:01 decimation: I think there's a general ambivalence about what bitcoin-devs want or do

06:43:25 thestringpuller: midnightmagic: there really isn't news. just gavin/hearn having a temper tantrum like a little kid because they want more subsidies for poor people.

21:56:58 mircea_popescu: what happens if you import the 7 block alt-chain into the stator ?

21:57:30 ascii_modem: innit in there now? or am i confused

21:58:21 mircea_popescu: atm the situation is that block 363730 is forked. one chain, 6 blocks long, proceeds atop a v2 block. the current main chain proceeds from 363730 on v3 blocks.

21:58:54 mircea_popescu: the difference between v3 and v2 is , as best anyone can determine, actual fucking validation for the openssl nonsense. hardly avoidable.

21:59:30 mircea_popescu: this, obviously, would also be where to bury who knows what. but if it's there, nobody's found it yet that i know

21:59:44 ascii_modem: so evil wins?

21:59:51 mircea_popescu: how so ?

22:00:15 ascii_modem: we involuntarily backport a gavinism?

22:00:36 mircea_popescu: how's it a gavinism to begin with ?

22:00:51 ascii_modem: because not ours?

22:01:03 mircea_popescu: lemme lay out the issue here in detail, i think it's mebbe getting fudged.

22:01:54 mircea_popescu: so 1. it was observed that the idiots running openssl, who for historical reasons are actually wholesale pulled into bitcoin, decided to fuck up the way they do signatures, which is to say, make items signed come out in rnadom shapes. this is obviously very dangerous for bitcoin

22:02:14 ascii_modem: aga i recall

22:02:25 mircea_popescu: 2. a voluntary, user-enforced change to the protocol was proposed (iirc by petertodd) where only DER sigs are accepted anymore.

22:02:44 mircea_popescu: this is neither a bad idea nor in any sense avoidable. because, again, without it we'll fork daily.

22:02:54 mircea_popescu: it'd have been ideal to not import the satoshism in question into bitcoin, but before our time.

22:03:31 mircea_popescu: 3. in order to avoid the situation that happened tonight, a supposed "voting" mechanism was deployed where people switched an irrelevant byte in the blocks they mined, to go from 2 to 3, to indicate they are ready and willing to follow the new rules.

22:03:56 mircea_popescu: this, again, has nothing to do with us. if tomorrow miners decide as a social game to never communicate any blocks they find that hash to odd, it's THEIR problem

22:03:58 ascii_modem: where were the daily forks b/w january (?) and now ?

22:04:05 mircea_popescu: and we'll never see an odd hash block for as long as they keep at it.

22:04:16 mircea_popescu: lemme finish

22:05:12 mircea_popescu: 4. the people who voted did so as all people voting ever do : blankly, mouth only. then, someone mined a v2 block on top of a v3 block (which to them look identical) and the supposed 95% majority that promised by that vote to distinguish failed to distinguish. well, half of them or so. the other half distinguished

22:05:42 mircea_popescu: this utterly proves that a) the BIP system provides no benefit and should be disused ; b) the peoiple involved with all this nonsense should be muted ; c) voting does not work. nothing here is novel.

22:06:02 mircea_popescu: none of this in any way invalidates anything about the new chain, nor is it a point of concern that i can distinguish

22:06:12 mircea_popescu: done.,

22:07:21 ascii_modem: got plan?

22:07:26 mircea_popescu: ascii_modem where were the daily forks b/w january (?) and now ? << costs a little to make one, nobody cared enough. (also lots of manual intervention and general ducttaping at the miner and relayer level - bitcoin is quickly becoming an excellent makework tool, keeping idiots both employed and in a delusion of importance)

22:07:55 mircea_popescu: well, just let the chain reorg an' carry on, imo.

22:08:11 mircea_popescu: i still don't see how it affects us / anything of concern.

22:08:15 ascii_modem: where is my reorg?

22:08:26 ascii_modem: my node is dead in the water

22:08:29 mircea_popescu: the only problem is that the clients ain't reorging properly, which needs looking into/

22:09:43 mircea_popescu: which is why i said, perfect time to test our tools.

22:09:51 ascii_modem: i saw no signs of blocks happening at all

22:09:54 mircea_popescu: specifically, what happens if you put the new chain into a node

22:10:05 mircea_popescu: well you're only looking at mine, and mine's not relaying.

22:10:14 ascii_modem: ah

22:10:36 mircea_popescu: which it's how it's made to work, better fail than be stupid.

22:10:39 ascii_modem: gonna plug in the one on dulap when i get home

22:10:59 mircea_popescu: now, since you're synced to my level, and you have a full validating node, i see no reason to not open the listen port. do you ?

22:11:25 ascii_modem: open

22:11:27 mircea_popescu: the original point of this thing i run here was to give all comers the historical chain as is in my custody.

22:11:45 mircea_popescu: i do intend to replace it with a foundation one as soon as practicable.

22:11:57 mircea_popescu: but for now it can stay as it is, because i think more people were syncing to it.

22:21:21 ascii_modem: how many other ways for fuckers to wedge us

22:21:57 mircea_popescu: this is a major problem, and the fact we're looking into it one of the few things giving me solace and better rest at night

22:22:37 ascii_modem: this incident makes it very tempting to just unzip, piss on satoshid, and go ada sanityfork (tm)

22:22:55 mircea_popescu: gotta make the fambly unit work alfie.

22:23:11 ascii_modem: ?

22:23:40 mircea_popescu: i know she's stupid and fat and you want a divorce, but...

22:23:45 mircea_popescu: gotta make the fambly unit work.

22:23:58 ascii_modem: right now we got an anthill in the living room

22:24:16 mircea_popescu: and you don't even know about the used condoms behind the bed headboard

22:24:23 ascii_modem: there are different schools of thought re how to furnish a room

22:24:29 punkman: I think we need to put a lot more comments on the code, kinda clunky to do through patches to ML though

22:24:34 ascii_modem: but none include anthill

22:24:36 thestringpuller: you married alf?

22:24:55 mircea_popescu: punkman you can resubmit it commented.

22:25:11 mircea_popescu: an' signed, an' people will prolly prefer referencing yours unless it's dumb

22:25:24 mircea_popescu: in which case they'll prolly change it rather than start from the original. unles it's VERY dumb.

22:25:38 mircea_popescu: which sort of reorg apparentyly happens, or used to happen, a whole lot.

22:27:11 ascii_modem: so far i'm not sure any of you apprehend just what a steaming turd the thing is

22:27:52 punkman: in other news, ATMs getting ddos'd even at 1am. rejects transaction, spits out card, and you gotta start over. perhaps intentional rate-limiting.

22:28:06 ascii_modem: where?

22:28:25 mircea_popescu: he's in greece.

22:28:31 mircea_popescu: anyway, the main sufferance in my head atm is that reading the chinese stuff (in translation) clarifies in my head an objection that may well be a second major flaw to the protocol, after the "relay nodes gotta do it for the glory" : its altogether unclear a purely financial incentive is the correct solution for miners.

22:28:32 ascii_modem: ah!

22:28:49 ascii_modem: ^^^^

22:28:51 mircea_popescu: specifically : atm there is an arbitrage open, where you can either make money by "brute forcing" it ie hashing,

22:29:20 mircea_popescu: or else by fucking up other people's miners. i ordered a listing of "all the ways you could exploit a miner with crafted comms for a hash advantage"

22:29:29 mircea_popescu: the process hasn't returned yet, the list is already hundreds of entries long

22:29:39 mircea_popescu: most only apply to specific implementationms etc, but! fuck me...

22:29:42 ascii_modem: this is the exam thread all over again

22:29:55 mircea_popescu: it pays more as a pool operator to be into skulldugery than into running your pool

22:30:00 ascii_modem: where 'exams optimize for examsmanship'

22:30:08 mircea_popescu: ipso facto "running pool" ===== "nefariousness in layers"

22:30:34 mircea_popescu: sure, people don't do it yet. mostly because lazy, 2nd mostly because stupid, 3rd mostly because it's not even txn time yet.

22:31:03 mircea_popescu: but when that begins all this may fucking collapse under the weight of... if money's the incentive to mine mining will not exactly allign with "securing the network"

22:31:34 mircea_popescu: (txn time = when most miner revenue comes from block txn)

22:32:14 mircea_popescu: lol

22:32:15 ascii_modem: *more

22:32:39 pete_dushenski: ^my modest post-mortem, perhaps early...

22:32:42 mircea_popescu: ascii_modem more specifically put : currently everyone is mining with a "god given" known tx of 25 btc + whatever they pick off the ground.

22:32:58 mircea_popescu: tomorrow, they will not KNOW immediately through act of god where that 25 btc comes from

22:33:46 ascii_modem: 12.5...

22:34:18 mircea_popescu: atm 99.x% of income comes through this immediate, sent-from-heaven-above channel

22:34:34 mircea_popescu: if as much as 66% comes that way and the other 33% has to be found out about... o baby.

22:34:52 mircea_popescu: hard to convey what the changes in dynamic such a thing brings.

22:35:13 ascii_modem: also touches on the mempool thread

22:35:21 mircea_popescu: really the % of income "just known" vs "information acquired" is the proper measure.

22:35:39 mircea_popescu: atm the split is .999 - .001 or somesuch. this will change monotoniucall;y the other way

22:35:42 ascii_modem: whole thing is mostly duct tape by weight

22:37:20 punkman: "A blockchain that does not validate under 0.5.3 is an altcoin blockchain." << both forks were valid in 0.5.3, right?

22:37:23 ascii_modem: so far there is no structure remotely enough to take up the weight if the duct tape is ripped out

22:37:49 mircea_popescu: punkman right. hence all the "We don't give a shit" verbiage here.

22:39:06 mircea_popescu: anyway, i don't envisage as much as an inkling of a solution. just more stuff to worry about.

22:39:43 ascii_modem: one one hand, i don't give a shit, yes. on the other, a human turd pressed a button, my nodes are halted, and there is no guarantee that they don't have a bottomless magazine of these

22:39:48 mircea_popescu: but this situation is why im so cold on your ada idea. sure, you go put all the god damned effort into writing a fully correct, fully specified implementation oif an... broken idea.

22:39:55 mircea_popescu: i like you too much for something liek that.

22:40:15 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 57600 @ 0.00053931 = 31.0643 BTC [-] {3}

22:40:19 ascii_modem: so invent correct idea ?

22:40:26 mircea_popescu: until we know exactly wtf to do about relayers, about miners now, there is no point. the prototype's still prototypin'.

22:40:34 mircea_popescu: dude, how about you actually get some data first omfg.

22:40:53 mircea_popescu: yea, i get it, may mean that this makes your fate be to muddle in the dirt, piling up data for your kid, who maybe might do it.

22:41:03 mircea_popescu: fuck you, your grandparents were farmers. it's how this fucking world works.

22:41:04 ascii_modem: would really help to have a fucking reasonable platform for this

22:41:25 mircea_popescu: yes. it would really help.

22:41:39 ascii_modem: that means not hairball

22:41:45 mircea_popescu: no, i know.

22:43:18 ascii_modem: actually ~my~ grandparents were approx. what i am now, l0l

22:43:36 ascii_modem: the male ones at least

22:44:02 ascii_modem: but farming is tempting, yes

22:44:22 punkman: "Chrome extension "BitcoinWisdom Ads Remover" by MasterX will change your btce deposit address after page is loaded. Do not use this app or remove it if you installed."

22:44:47 punkman: surprised we aren't seeing more of these

22:44:53 ascii_modem: run moar chromedowz!!

22:44:57 punkman: farming is tempting?

22:45:08 ascii_modem: compared to c++

22:45:23 punkman: wait until you try to debug plants

22:45:29 trinque: or a cow's arse

22:46:18 ascii_modem: bbl

22:49:08 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform just sayin, humanity was built by originally trudging the muck with no tools.

22:49:20 mircea_popescu: there is no reason to expect any better in this new field. it is, after all, a field.

22:49:36 mircea_popescu: and yes, most men died before seeing the thing they were working for. historically, to date.

22:49:42 mircea_popescu: there's no reason to expect etc etc.

22:50:48 mircea_popescu: <punkman> wait until you try to debug plants << he has a point there. tho in fairness iirc alf debugged mice at some point.

22:52:02 *: mircea_popescu is mildly impressed at alf's lineage in any case. my grandparents were teachers and whatnot, but great-grandparents deifnitely farmers.

22:52:39 punkman: I get very frustrated at things like "o hey we've sprayed 12 different solutions at it and the damn lemon tree still has fungus"

22:52:43 mircea_popescu: not really *that* far off

22:53:37 mircea_popescu: punkman i had problems with, "artichoke does so well here, it actually STAYED GREEN THROUGH WINTER, suppoirting an inch of snow on its upturned broad leaves. meanwhile, magnolia sapplings grow < 1inch per year and will never flower"

22:54:05 mircea_popescu: the town was fully of blooming magnolias and i never saw a single artichoke plant outside of my garden

22:56:53 punkman: for a short time I believed in the mythical farmer that actually knows what he's doing. But after watching the experts debug these things, my only conclusion is they sometimes get lucky and that's the best I could hope for.

22:57:23 punkman: maybe they got better corn science over in the US, dunno.

22:57:24 mircea_popescu: just like coders.

22:57:42 mircea_popescu: yeah, if you agree to make unedible crud you may have better control.

22:59:20 danielpbarron: i don't have port forwarded to that machine

22:59:21 mircea_popescu: punkman meanwhile hanbot used to grow cherry tomatoes on her windowsill.

23:03:29 mod6: <+danielpbarron> height=363856 << your v0.5.3.1ish node has this height?

23:03:46 mircea_popescu: hanbot it still seems thermodynamically impossible.

23:04:19 mircea_popescu: mod6 the blockchain is not compromised.

23:04:24 hanbot: you don't understand the way the windowmato works.

23:05:55 punkman: we need something that stores these forks for inspection and replaying. I think ben_vulpes had a thread about that

23:06:09 mircea_popescu: punkman well now we have it! alf wrote the shitblock!

23:06:38 mircea_popescu: this is exactly the sortt of situation the entire deterministic thing he was crowing about is meant for.

23:06:53 mircea_popescu: which, in terms of parachutes.. .you gotta admit... perfect timing

23:07:05 danielpbarron: 71.232.150.212 port 8139 is a fully synched 0.5.3.1~ node

23:07:13 mircea_popescu: almost as if someone was holding off hitting the muppets over the head with a 2x4 until b-a crowd had its ducks lined

23:07:19 punkman: yeah but after reorg it throws the things away right? you'd have to shitblock at just the right time

23:09:34 mircea_popescu: otherwise, stews it. which...
