00:03:47 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 11500 @ 0.00062951 = 7.2394 BTC [+] {2}

00:09:05 adlai: the easy way to prevent that is just not to record anything myself

00:09:43 adlai: whether the idea of recording the talk is sufficiently incepted in the public's mind that several random audience members are likely to have recorded - is another matter

00:10:53 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [AM1] 28 @ 0.10920538 = 3.0578 BTC [-] {5}

00:17:34 ascii_modem: florida law re: recording scamz0rz << see earlier thread re: correct attitude to law.

00:19:00 adlai: !s correct attitude law from:ascii

00:19:01 assbot: 0 results for 'correct attitude law from:ascii' : http://s.b-a.link/?q=correct+attitude+law+from%3Aascii

00:19:48 ascii_modem: i am quite certain that, e.g., iran, has even more interesting laws. with even stiffer punishments for disobedience. should we all hire iranian lawyers, avoid ending up on heads-off ?

00:20:46 ascii_modem: adlai: log.bitcoin-assets.com//?date=04-01-2015#965080 and below.

00:21:43 adlai: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=04-01-2015#965084 << what's the problem with open source?

00:21:43 assbot: Logged on 04-01-2015 22:52:28; ascii_modem: if you're an 'open source' whateverthefux, and you give a fuck that your code 'is legal' - just surrender to jail now. save the bother.

00:21:56 ascii_modem: not with open source

00:22:21 *: adlai goes searching for context

00:22:48 ascii_modem: but with respecting tyrants who propose to say that writing some code is permissible , other kinds - not

00:23:49 ascii_modem: e.g. 'software patent'

00:27:11 ascii_modem: linked article was similar to a turd that made the rounds back when w2k source leake

00:27:20 ascii_modem: 'don't read it, you'll be tainted for life and can never be a legit open source dev again'

00:28:01 decimation: ascii_modem: in the earlier case of recording, my answer is: yes, you probably ought to have an iranian lawyer (or a plan to get one) if you find yourself physically in iran

00:28:19 ascii_modem: better to get a plane ticket out.

00:28:34 ascii_modem: or boat, or rocket, whatever

00:28:35 decimation: agreed, but to shift to your point about code - where?

00:28:53 ascii_modem: one step ahead of pursuers.

00:29:11 ascii_modem: that is the only 'where'.

00:30:22 ascii_modem: i'll point out that it is not hard at all to crap out however much 'illegal1111!' code you want, anywhere on planet, at no risk to your health

00:30:50 ascii_modem: !s if you think, don't write

00:30:51 assbot: 2 results for 'if you think, don't write' : http://s.b-a.link/?q=if+you+think%2C+don%27t+write

00:31:12 adlai: my favorite nonsense was an internal usg email during the snowden leaks, advising employees not to read the leaked document on unclassified workstations lacking necessary clearance to view the doc

00:31:31 ascii_modem: this predates snowden

00:31:45 ascii_modem: dates to at least 'wikileaks'

00:32:00 decimation: w.r.t. to the link you posted about the guy warning not to reverse engineer drivers, his point about the pointlessness of the endeavor seems well-founded

00:32:07 adlai: https://www.schneier.com/blog/archives/2013/07/dhs_puts_its_he.html

00:32:09 assbot: Schneier on Security: DHS Puts its Head in the Sand ... ( http://bit.ly/1IdGtzg )

00:32:38 ascii_modem: decimation: he was entirely wrong about the -why- pointless

00:32:58 thestringpuller: ascii from da past

00:33:02 decimation: house of cards microcode shitware?

00:33:51 decimation: adlai: you can see how it would be much more difficult for usg to actually coordinate which secrets are 'released' and which ones are 'secret'

00:33:55 decimation: it's easier to pretend.

00:34:07 ascii_modem: the audience can't do jack shit to bring sane silicon into being. but it can actively and maximally destructively piss on 'intellectual property' and related usg crown privilege.

00:34:36 thestringpuller: cazalla: you still around?

00:34:45 cazalla: thestringpuller, yup, what's up

00:35:02 ascii_modem: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com//?date=04-01-2015#964832

00:35:02 assbot: Logged on 04-01-2015 17:47:10; mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo: But... the 3d printed gun dude says burn it all down is an ideology... << i agree. it is.

00:35:22 thestringpuller: pokemon: i must catch them all

00:36:09 cazalla: thestringpuller, cbf this morning, didn't get to bed till 4am and i'm still a bit tired

00:36:25 thestringpuller: ;;ls

00:36:35 thestringpuller: nanotube still on vacation?

00:37:50 decimation: http://www.nytimes.com/2015/01/04/opinion/sunday/how-my-mom-got-hacked.html << more pro-military-industrial-complex propaganda

00:37:53 assbot: Log In - The New York Times ... ( http://bit.ly/1IdHuaO )

00:40:01 adlai: btce still leading the light brigade

00:40:15 ascii_modem: drivers << presently the open source folks have two choices - open mouth and wait for rain, in the sahara; or cut enemy throat and drink up.

00:40:52 decimation: third choice: make own hardware using fpgas (yes, I remember past fpga threads)

00:41:14 ascii_modem: make own planet too, while at it

00:43:31 kakobrekla: ill throw some dirt towards that.

00:43:51 ascii_modem: !s sdram controller

00:43:52 assbot: 5 results for 'sdram controller' : http://s.b-a.link/?q=sdram+controller

00:43:56 ascii_modem: etc

00:44:14 kakobrekla: was talking about the planet.

00:46:15 ascii_modem: folks who bring up fpga as a solution - straight to ebay, pick up a board, see if you can bake so much as an i386 compatible, with at least the original's performance, -without- the fpga vendor's closed libraries

00:46:53 ascii_modem: with them, it is quite the same as using 'evil' modern silicon

01:29:50 thestringpuller: Chairman Popescu.

01:29:54 *: thestringpuller tips hat

01:30:05 Apocalyptic: !up mircea_popescu

01:30:31 Apocalyptic: still no gribble eh

01:40:06 thestringpuller: yea no one knows where he is

01:43:04 mircea_popescu: heya & thanks

01:43:29 ben_vulpes: dag. looks like this irc thinger's getting fragile.

01:43:30 ben_vulpes: mircea_popescu: did anything come of your conversations with "t"?

01:43:48 mircea_popescu: no.

01:43:52 mircea_popescu: i see guy's still idling here tho

01:44:11 mircea_popescu: but anyway, since we're on it : anyone wish to write a proper ircd ?

01:44:18 mircea_popescu: ima make a spec for it.

01:44:20 ben_vulpes: and a bouncer, while we're at it.

01:44:25 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 6142 @ 0.00064049 = 3.9339 BTC [+]

01:44:43 thestringpuller: ircd?

01:44:48 ben_vulpes: znc is broken flaky hellspawn.

01:45:05 mircea_popescu: yeah. i guess this calls for a whole new category on fraudsters.

01:45:21 mircea_popescu: ima do it once done with reports, announcements and other first of month stuff

01:45:59 ben_vulpes: "shit mp wants built"

01:46:01 mircea_popescu: the thing where i put it in a pastedbin dun work, im sick of looking up the url for the deedbot one.

01:46:15 mircea_popescu: cazalla qntra wordcounts ?

01:49:13 thestringpuller: mircea_popescu: those have been up since the 1st: http://qntra.net/2015/01/qntra-s-qntr-december-2014-statement/

01:49:59 ben_vulpes: is there a pompous name for the l2 list? the dukes?

01:50:22 mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes lordship list, sure

01:50:27 mircea_popescu: oh ty thestringpuller

01:50:36 ben_vulpes: mircea_popescu: l1's the lordship list?

01:50:43 mircea_popescu: ah yes my bad.

01:50:52 mircea_popescu: teh... knighthood ?

01:51:02 ben_vulpes: the peerage?

01:51:05 mircea_popescu: most honorable order of teh bath ?

01:51:42 mircea_popescu: speaking of which... http://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orden_del_Baño‎

01:51:45 assbot: Orden del Baño - Wikipedia, la enciclopedia libre ... ( http://bit.ly/1zN9WMa )

01:51:49 mircea_popescu: because we translate proper nouns now.

01:52:31 ben_vulpes: ooh most noble order of the garter

01:52:54 ben_vulpes: garter snakes hueeee

01:53:10 mircea_popescu: lol works

01:53:20 ben_vulpes: no its horrible

01:54:06 mircea_popescu: "the cult" ?

01:54:18 ben_vulpes: "the hoplites"?

01:54:22 mircea_popescu: then the verb for joining could be "cultured"

01:54:38 ben_vulpes: ew.

01:55:04 mircea_popescu: i dunno, ask tat, he's the naming fiend.

01:55:12 mircea_popescu: or mebbe hanbot

01:55:47 mircea_popescu: wow check out mike_c dominate the qntra wordcounts in dec.

01:57:35 Apocalyptic: you're probably looking at the first bytes of the fingerprint, not his wordcount heh

01:57:40 Apocalyptic: happened to me too

01:57:48 thestringpuller: XD

01:57:54 mircea_popescu: oh oh lol

01:57:56 mircea_popescu: oops

01:57:57 thestringpuller: where has TaT been?

01:59:35 mircea_popescu: ascii_modem: 'plagiarism' may be a 'sin of the flesh', but plagiarists exist just the same as 'wankers' exist. << not what i meant. what i meant was the construct's nonsense.

01:59:55 mircea_popescu: there is no such thing as "plagiarism" anymore than there's burning bushes or actual sides of christmeat.

02:00:56 thestringpuller: !up mircea_popescu

02:03:50 mircea_popescu: whaty's this altgribble thing ?

02:04:33 kakobrekla: someone runs a gribble clone

02:04:46 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 6800 @ 0.00063347 = 4.3076 BTC [-]

02:08:02 mircea_popescu: but how is this possible ?

02:08:11 mircea_popescu: i mean... if you rate with it, it updates the db ?

02:08:16 Apocalyptic: nope

02:08:18 kakobrekla: i guess you cant rate

02:08:21 Apocalyptic: you can't rate

02:08:26 kakobrekla: see

02:08:35 kakobrekla: my guess is better than sexyginger

02:08:53 Apocalyptic: dat kako

02:09:12 mircea_popescu: decimation: such a law is obviously intended to protect criminals (politicians, bureaucrats) <<< or young women having casual sex.

02:09:17 scoopbot: New post on fraudsters by Mircea Popescu: http://fraudsters.com/2015/mpif-fmpif-december-2014-statement/

02:09:26 mircea_popescu: so basically it doesn't do anything.

02:09:33 mircea_popescu: why'd i trust it's "registered" claims.

02:10:22 mircea_popescu: decimation: my only problem is that it seems somewhat dangerous << from what i hear it's actually safer than flying planes.

02:12:17 ben_vulpes: !up Phraust

02:12:25 Phraust: :)

02:13:32 mircea_popescu: "moms who persist in using big, boxy PC computers and small-town police departments."

02:13:36 mircea_popescu: fucking idiots these people.

02:13:41 mircea_popescu: my computer is "big, boxy PC"

02:13:58 mircea_popescu: and it shits on his useless applepad or whatever the fuck it is.

02:14:08 mircea_popescu: how goes Phoebus

02:14:12 mircea_popescu: i mean Phraust

02:14:26 mircea_popescu: "So what can we all do to protect ourselves? Keep our computers backed up on an independent drive or by using a cloud backup service like Carbonite, take those software update and ?patch? alerts seriously"

02:14:30 mircea_popescu: mno. but anyway.

02:14:46 Phraust: not bad. livin' the dream :D

02:15:10 Phraust: finally got time to irc again. what's been crackin'?

02:15:21 mircea_popescu: "Welcome to the new ransomware economy, where hackers have a reputation to consider." "welcome to the post-modern world, where 'criminals' are more reliable than governments, and certainly more useful."

02:15:45 mircea_popescu: Phraust not much really. same old bs, restated in all seriousness by a new generation of turnips.

02:16:19 *: Phraust nods.

02:16:31 Phraust: THings just ain't the same for gangsters.

02:17:49 mircea_popescu: just as an idle exercise, imagine how that article'd have sounded if the criminals were some usg agency, stealing the woman's drive and not giving it back.

02:17:59 mircea_popescu: i seem to recall a bunch of these, and they're all fucking respectful.

02:18:06 mircea_popescu: time for a tone change, mainstream media.

02:30:04 kakobrekla: !up PinkPosixPXE

02:31:26 ben_vulpes: !up mircea_popescu

02:33:13 PinkPosixPXE: thank you

02:33:20 ben_vulpes: how've you been?

02:34:44 PinkPosixPXE: oh man.. I've been helping my friend who runs a VPS provider, gigebox.com, migrate everything to a new host node

02:34:47 PinkPosixPXE: all his containers

02:34:58 mircea_popescu: o hey, PinkPosixPXE

02:35:09 PinkPosixPXE: and wrote an ipv6_ddos mitigations cript

02:35:11 PinkPosixPXE: script

02:35:12 PinkPosixPXE: for him

02:35:14 ben_vulpes: that's a shitload of work yow

02:35:18 mircea_popescu: is it any good ?

02:35:20 PinkPosixPXE: ovh works for our ipv4 stuff

02:35:20 cazalla: mircea_popescu, posted 5 days ago http://qntra.net/2015/01/qntra-s-qntr-december-2014-statement/

02:35:20 assbot: Qntra (S.QNTR) December 2014 Statement | Qntra.net ... ( http://bit.ly/1Aulvf9 )

02:35:46 ben_vulpes: i've been digging through https://twitter.com/ipxcore/ (ghetto vps) for uptime gems

02:35:48 assbot: IPXcore (@ipxcore) | Twitter ... ( http://bit.ly/1AulBU2 )

02:35:54 PinkPosixPXE: but ipv6 is more difficult, so this does a count on the packets, and if it exceeds the limit, it finds the ipv6 address, and vps in question, and then disables those addresses on the vps so they can't be targetted

02:35:55 mircea_popescu: cazalla yeah i see. qntra is so successful i got lost among the articles :)

02:36:22 mircea_popescu: PinkPosixPXE doesn't sound like much mitigation.

02:36:23 PinkPosixPXE: I'm going to update it to set a timer to re enable them after a certain period of time and do some updates to it, but it's been keeping things up for the last few weeks

02:36:49 PinkPosixPXE: well when the packet limit is breached, usually the vps will be suspended

02:36:51 cazalla: mircea_popescu, i was first! as they say, some people are so far behind the race that they actually believe they are leading :P

02:36:56 PinkPosixPXE: automatically

02:36:57 mircea_popescu: lol

02:37:01 ben_vulpes: PinkPosixPXE: is this for outbound ddossing?

02:37:15 PinkPosixPXE: this ensure the vps won't be suspended, and just removes the target ipv6 ips

02:37:25 PinkPosixPXE: until the attack stops

02:37:44 PinkPosixPXE: it's a better solution for customers than 'container susspended again'

02:37:46 PinkPosixPXE: suspended*

02:38:02 PinkPosixPXE: sorry, been migrating and snapshotting containers to this new server all day

02:38:02 mircea_popescu: PinkPosixPXE how about write the script so that you keep track of foreign hosts, and once packet limit is reached for a vps all foreign hosts that aren't on the list of hosts it connected in the past 24 hours get banned across the entire network ?

02:38:48 PinkPosixPXE: the attacks are all .cap'd and then the ip's are all reported to ovh to be added to ddos mitigation

02:38:49 mircea_popescu: "oh, i see you're trying to connect to a vps that a) you've not connected before and b) is being attacked ? come back next week."

02:38:54 PinkPosixPXE: and a null route is put in place as well

02:38:59 PinkPosixPXE: but often times they are spoofed source ip's

02:39:07 PinkPosixPXE: so that can sometimes be ineffective long term

02:39:11 mircea_popescu: why is ovh allowing spoofs inside ?

02:39:20 mircea_popescu: nm. ovh.

02:39:33 PinkPosixPXE: ipv6 ddos attacks are just a pain all around

02:39:40 PinkPosixPXE: it's a different beast

02:39:54 PinkPosixPXE: this runs on the host node

02:41:03 PinkPosixPXE: this way people can still get on their nodes, and are just informed that we've removed a few ipv6 addresses that were being attacked.. instead of their node being suspended and shut off, and they are then freaking out

02:41:21 PinkPosixPXE: and before long the addresses come back up when the attack dies down

02:41:22 PinkPosixPXE: anywho

02:41:32 PinkPosixPXE: it is a band-aid until we can figure something better out

02:42:06 PinkPosixPXE: but it saved our butts quite a bit over the last few weeks

02:42:24 PinkPosixPXE: and this isn't exactly how I'd setup vps hosting

02:42:43 PinkPosixPXE: I have 3 vps' at a very large (Free) discount with this provider

02:42:47 PinkPosixPXE: and root on the host node

02:43:01 PinkPosixPXE: and made a migration script for us to migrate to the new node, helped him pick it out

02:43:12 PinkPosixPXE: I'm learning how sloppy some of it is

02:43:43 PinkPosixPXE: I will probably eventually buy a dedi that's a bit better than the our new one

02:43:51 PinkPosixPXE: and split off my own vps services

02:43:53 ben_vulpes: here's to dedis

02:43:55 PinkPosixPXE: on my own host

02:44:12 PinkPosixPXE: but that's down the road a month at least

02:44:21 ben_vulpes: PinkPosixPXE: you launch a VPS service, take BTC (don't even denominate in BTC), and you've got custom right here.

02:44:35 PinkPosixPXE: yea, I was thinking about that

02:44:42 PinkPosixPXE: and I plan to offer BTC as payment

02:44:55 PinkPosixPXE: as well as DDOS mitigation, and of course ipv6

02:45:35 PinkPosixPXE: now that I've helped run, and in some ways rescue this vps provider

02:45:44 ben_vulpes: if you can afford to denominate in btc...

02:45:47 ben_vulpes: gamechanger right there.

02:45:48 PinkPosixPXE: and get the migrations streamlined to the new host

02:46:00 PinkPosixPXE: I can see where I can put together a much better product

02:46:20 kakobrekla: see what i told you, wife material right there.

02:46:51 PinkPosixPXE: yea, after I wrote the vps migrate script for him today

02:46:53 ben_vulpes: !s wife material

02:46:54 assbot: 1 results for 'wife material' : http://s.b-a.link/?q=wife+material

02:46:55 PinkPosixPXE: after we migrated a few

02:47:02 PinkPosixPXE: and fixed about 10 issues he ran into within 5 minutes

02:47:07 PinkPosixPXE: but mostly after the script

02:47:14 PinkPosixPXE: he said he was going to force me to marry him one day

02:47:18 PinkPosixPXE: and that it may be by gunpoint

02:47:29 ben_vulpes: good thing you've got your own equalizer then huh

02:47:42 PinkPosixPXE: yep haha

02:47:49 PinkPosixPXE: I'm probably a better shot too :x

02:48:11 BingoBoingo: That helps.

02:49:22 PinkPosixPXE: ben_vulpes: I might need you (or some of you guys) as resources regarding I ensure I setup my bitcoin merchanting properly

02:49:25 PinkPosixPXE: I've done some research

02:49:29 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 3300 @ 0.00064049 = 2.1136 BTC [+]

02:49:37 PinkPosixPXE: and know how to add it

02:49:46 ben_vulpes: are you planning to convert directly to fiat?

02:50:00 kakobrekla: he means if you gonna be a bitch!

02:50:17 PinkPosixPXE: I will probably have a recurring tool that converst a portion of it to fiat

02:50:23 PinkPosixPXE: converts*

02:50:41 PinkPosixPXE: I wouldn't make it all fiat

02:50:48 PinkPosixPXE: I'm not bailing on bitcoin

02:50:52 PinkPosixPXE: recent drops don't scare me

02:50:55 kakobrekla: its ok hon you can be honest here. :)

02:51:13 PinkPosixPXE: in fact, I've been buying more as it's gone down

02:51:18 PinkPosixPXE: it's the holidays..

02:51:36 ben_vulpes: PinkPosixPXE: the simplest and most robust approach is going to be to quote specific prices and have that exact qty remitted to an addr of your control

02:51:44 ben_vulpes: use a btcd to watch incoming blocks for confirmations

02:52:16 ben_vulpes: there's some bookkeeping to be done in terms of counters in the itty bitty satoshis, to avoid dup transaction amounts

02:52:19 PinkPosixPXE: ok, that makes sense.. so basically I can keep the bitcoin price in flux with what the current price is

02:52:29 PinkPosixPXE: BTC match up to current USD

02:52:33 ben_vulpes: right

02:52:34 PinkPosixPXE: or whatever currency

02:52:36 ben_vulpes: that's your quoting logic

02:52:42 PinkPosixPXE: yea, that shouldn't be too bad, sweet

02:52:43 ben_vulpes: totally orthogonal to the accepting of bitcoin

02:53:01 PinkPosixPXE: yea, I've noticed it where I shop using bitcoin quite a bit

02:53:23 ben_vulpes: what you *don't* want to do is send each txn to seperate addrs.

02:53:27 ben_vulpes: you could, ofc.

02:53:50 ben_vulpes: there are clever things you could do with hashing the order and using that as a private key for receipts or something like that...

02:53:51 ben_vulpes: but don't.

02:54:03 PinkPosixPXE: ok, good to know

02:54:13 PinkPosixPXE: yea, these were some of the things I was curious about

02:54:33 ben_vulpes: don't depend on an external api to monitor the blockchain

02:54:45 ben_vulpes: use bitcoin-rpc calls to watch for incoming blocks, scrape for txns to your addr

02:54:57 ben_vulpes: and don't put the key anywhere near that bitcoind

02:54:58 kakobrekla: wait whut is this no separate address bsns

02:55:01 PinkPosixPXE: oh yea, api -> webapp -> blochain updates.. too slow

02:55:04 PinkPosixPXE: that makes sense

02:55:15 ben_vulpes: kakobrekla: do whatever you want, cartman

02:55:32 ben_vulpes: you have a thing that works, congrats.

02:55:46 kakobrekla: ??

02:55:51 ben_vulpes: http://bitbet.us ??

02:55:52 assbot: BitBet ... ( http://bit.ly/1Ie6Bdl )

02:56:23 kakobrekla: i dont understand y no unique address per order?

02:56:38 ben_vulpes: why bother?

02:56:39 PinkPosixPXE: I wonder if I should buy a bitcoin now

02:56:42 PinkPosixPXE: or wait for it to drop a bit more

02:57:00 kakobrekla: wait for 2$.

02:57:47 PinkPosixPXE: 200 ?

02:57:57 kakobrekla: myea i guess

02:58:05 PinkPosixPXE: I might buy at 250.. as long as it keeps trending back up

02:58:26 PinkPosixPXE: we'll see

02:58:34 PinkPosixPXE: glad I didn't buy when it dropped to 310 last week

02:58:40 PinkPosixPXE: and waited a bit

02:58:46 ben_vulpes: i just want more coins plz

02:59:29 PinkPosixPXE: hehe

03:01:44 kakobrekla: anyway my suggestion: give unique address for each palyment which you monitor for certain period of time. if you use bit32 you can generate new addresses on the fly on the server without private key or else pregenerate them and throw them in db

03:01:49 kakobrekla: !up PinkPosixPXE

03:02:05 kakobrekla: bip32

03:02:15 PinkPosixPXE: thanks

03:02:24 PinkPosixPXE: is assbot not talking to altgribble yet?

03:02:33 kakobrekla: its not a 'yet' thing.

03:02:38 PinkPosixPXE: ah ok

03:03:20 BingoBoingo: !up mircea_popescu

03:03:20 mircea_popescu: PinkPosixPXE aha i see.

03:03:31 kakobrekla: you dont need to voice him he is opped

03:03:52 mircea_popescu: PinkPosixPXE how about i buy you some dedis and you admin them and run a host for btc business ?

03:03:55 kakobrekla: !down mircea_popescu

03:03:59 kakobrekla: see.

03:04:16 mircea_popescu: haet

03:08:15 PinkPosixPXE: you would put the initial investment in the dedi's? teh competitively priced ones might be in the arena of $300-400/mo to rent depending upon how competitive I want my services to be, and I will probably be buying something through voxility

03:08:31 PinkPosixPXE: I want 10gbps, but I can offer low end as well

03:08:48 PinkPosixPXE: but I want high end and ddos mitigation, etc. available as well

03:09:10 PinkPosixPXE: It would depend

03:10:17 PinkPosixPXE: technically, I can finance it on my own, but I guess I'm still in the process of working out the details, and I guess regardless, I just need to make sure all the time and work I put into admining everything is getting me money and setting me up for some independence career wise

03:10:31 ben_vulpes: run 'em in parallel.

03:11:01 ben_vulpes: finance your fiat VPS situation yourself, and run it in parallel with the BTC VPS MP wants to finance.

03:11:47 *: ben_vulpes is off for a bit

03:12:00 PinkPosixPXE: right now, I've spent so much time and energy through the holidays helping this provider/friend, and while I'll probably get an endless supply of vps resources from him at a prorated "nothing" .. I need to setup a business and direction for the future of my own thing, or at least make money when I output time/work

03:12:11 PinkPosixPXE: I could potentially do that

03:12:17 PinkPosixPXE: since I'd be setting things up identically

03:12:25 PinkPosixPXE: but would have to see

03:12:32 PinkPosixPXE: the time commit is a big consideratio

03:12:54 PinkPosixPXE: with so many projects, I have to make sure I can get everything taken care of

03:13:42 PinkPosixPXE: but that's a great idea, and an offer I'd definitely be interested in potentially pursuing, and discussing further with you mircea_popescu

03:14:16 PinkPosixPXE: I just need to do a little math on 'units of time/energ/projects' and potential independence from my day job at some point so I have more time

03:14:47 PinkPosixPXE: but it's defiitely gaining momentum, and with time, it'll happen

03:14:57 PinkPosixPXE: I want to make sur eI can offer both offshore and us hosting as well

03:15:04 PinkPosixPXE: so that's another thing I'll be working on

03:15:21 PinkPosixPXE: anywho.. I better get back to helping them with these migrations

03:15:33 PinkPosixPXE: 30 minute break, and they are already pinging for my help

03:15:43 kakobrekla: good luck

03:16:39 PinkPosixPXE: thank you! It was good to chat with you guys again and check in.. I may disappear a bit later when we move my vps because we have to do an offline migration, but I'll always return, and be around :)

03:16:55 mircea_popescu: PinkPosixPXE cool.

03:24:27 mircea_popescu: !up mapop

04:26:06 punkman: pauperism, holidays, lyf

04:26:15 decimation: kakobrekla: all the way to $2!

04:26:18 kakobrekla: i would add to the article "self proclaimed 'World's leading Bitcoin exchange'"

04:26:19 mircea_popescu: am i going "this has to be reimplemented for the third time" ?

04:26:51 BingoBoingo: kakobrekla: Qntra has comments form. Also no need to do math to post comment

04:27:12 mircea_popescu: it's not really math if it has letters in it.

04:27:16 kakobrekla: i thought i get paid if you include those 6 words, or at least 2, since 4 are the quote.

04:27:45 Fun: its bizzare that greek debt is financed atleast was financed in past via some usa banks lol

04:27:57 Fun: who in turn seems to packed and sold it as derivatives

04:28:26 Fun: afterward EU said bad bad boys and said they are going to finance greece directly but perhaps thats just words

04:28:28 decimation: kakobrekla: BingoBoingo: according to bitcoin charts bitstamp is #3 in volume right now

04:36:34 mircea_popescu: Fun in the last, normally.

04:36:41 mircea_popescu: ascii_modem right.

04:36:54 kakobrekla: but they have https

04:37:02 punkman: mircea_popescu: problem is I'm reimplementing website in PHP and also changing bot to send shit to PHP reliably, and it's all a bit tangled up at the moment

04:37:05 thestringpuller: ascii_modem mircea_popescu: its just surprising that none of these "businesses" have pub-keys published for verification purposes.

04:37:05 mircea_popescu: they do a typically fiat thing whereby they act like gpg is sorta like you know, this soft toy thing. they get an address like it were a social media profile.

04:38:12 mircea_popescu: but you can use a broker, by now they cater even to people with 10k or something.

04:38:19 Fun: seems so

04:38:25 thestringpuller: easily repudiable << is this why twitter has to verify celebrities?

04:38:27 decimation: Fun: on the web brokerages mircea suggests they certainly sell options on those etfs

04:40:56 Fun: seems pretty cheap @ option price :)

04:41:24 thestringpuller: cazalla: when will people stop using HTML encoded email

04:41:55 Fun: I am suprised that large russian corporations did not hedge their loans fx risks, or maybe they did :D

04:42:03 punkman: mircea_popescu: it was DDoS'd/hacked, I got some PHP hosting as solution for DDoS. Existing version can be backup withing 24 hours if someone wants to administer it/protect from ddos/etc. Nobody wants to do that, so I haz to write PHP.

04:42:20 mircea_popescu: punkman where'd you ask ?

04:42:33 ascii_modem: there would be no phishing if everyone used GPG correctly. << 'brainwave' by poul anderson.

04:43:26 ascii_modem: php hosting ?!

04:43:30 Fun: decimation: futures and options?

04:43:48 cazalla: thestringpuller, but i like pretty newsletters

04:43:52 mircea_popescu: punkman this really has been very poorly communicated.

04:44:28 Apocalyptic: why rewrite from python to PHP ? seems like a poor downgrade in everything

04:44:32 mircea_popescu: for one thing, ddos'd/hacked is an unlikely combo. which was it ?

04:44:59 mircea_popescu: Apocalyptic i dunno wtf he's doing, im sitting here debugging a lengthy string of nonsense resulted from engineer deciding arbitrarily to selfmanage mid process.

04:45:33 mircea_popescu: about as pleasant a thing as fifty years worth of dilbert rolled up in one fat joint.

04:45:39 ascii_modem: fellas, all these headaches - ircd/fleanode, notarybot, etc. - one pill. why not one of you carry out my erasurecode-router scheme.

04:45:40 mircea_popescu: except the other side.

04:45:43 Apocalyptic: I can see that

04:46:27 thestringpuller: dilbert is kinda funny tho...

05:01:56 mircea_popescu: curious if this ends up going the way of btcxchange

05:02:33 cazalla: well, the wallet that was last audited has been empty since early dec

05:04:31 decimation: the bid/ask spread on eur/usd spot runs about 3 to 4 mili-cents (w/comission)

05:05:03 decimation: for mar 2015 Euro Futures, price 1.1949 with a 32k volume

05:08:57 decimation: to buy a call that expires 15 jan on the mar 2015 future, for a strike price of 1.19 costs $0.0096

05:09:26 mircea_popescu: don't do options on futures, do spot options.

05:12:01 Fun: mircea_popescu: whats the difference?

05:12:22 mircea_popescu: that one is an option on the future and the other on the spot o.O

05:12:37 mircea_popescu: what's the difference between apple pie and pineapple pie ?

05:14:53 decimation: yeah I'm trying to find the options on spot (seems it would be easier) but I am having trouble

05:15:33 decimation: lol

05:15:53 mircea_popescu: irrespective of widespread belief to the contrary, im pretty sure no entity currently can value options on forex futures

05:16:25 decimation: they certainly exist

05:16:38 mircea_popescu: the catholic church also "exists"

05:16:42 decimation: are you implying that markov chains are doing what they do?

05:16:45 mircea_popescu: in the sense that one can hang himself from it.

05:17:30 decimation: actually options on spot probably don't exist, come to think on it

05:17:33 mircea_popescu: look at the math involved sometime in an idle hour, but from a fundamental perspective, none of that "this is hw it's done because it's how it's done" circularity.

05:18:00 decimation: like, why would you pay to deliever something that's only valued today?

05:18:21 mircea_popescu: uh ?!

05:19:02 decimation: I guess my point is that a promise to deliver a euro tomorrow isn't a spot price

05:19:19 *: BingoBoingo kind of really wants kakobrekla to write an "I told you so" piece on Bitstamp

05:19:55 mircea_popescu: this is true

05:20:36 thestringpuller: http://bitcoinobituaries.com/

05:20:43 thestringpuller: Bitcoin has died 23 times

05:20:44 mircea_popescu: but an option to deliver tomorrow an euro deliverable next week is a whole other layer of nutso.

05:20:57 decimation: yeah fair point

05:21:20 decimation: so weirdly my brokerage doesn't appear to have spot (freestyle?) forex options, only options on futures

05:21:39 decimation: it does appear that forex is a very specialized thing that varies widely with brokerage

05:21:45 mircea_popescu: yes but use an option for mar on the mar future.

05:21:49 decimation: !up Fun

05:22:01 Fun: they package stuff to confuse people imo

05:22:04 mircea_popescu: rather than a jan option on the mar future.

05:22:15 Fun: derivative on top of derivative

05:22:48 mircea_popescu: Fun noobs have a reputation of wishing to get involved in the most complex end of any matter first thing.

05:22:53 mircea_popescu: this is no different.

05:23:32 Fun: I was watching RBK today, chairmain of Russian Commerce Chamber was going on that some russian companies need to refinance tons of mid term debt soon in what I presume usd :) I was thinking here that sounds fishy how come they havent hedged FX risk from the start

05:23:33 Fun: :)

05:23:57 mircea_popescu: Fun because a) it costs money and b) they don't care, because it's not really their problem.

05:24:18 Fun: more of b they hope gov will tell some bank to bail them out

05:24:25 decimation: k. a Mar 15 call for a march euro strike 1.19 costs 0.0221 and a put costs 0.0172

05:24:41 Fun: 0.02 is cheap

05:24:57 mircea_popescu: uptrend huh.

05:25:06 Fun: those are 125,000 lots so say 1% move is 1,250 gain?

05:25:11 mircea_popescu: no dude.

05:25:25 mircea_popescu: if it goes to 1.2121 you break even

05:25:57 Fun: but it may well outperform strike price

05:26:13 mircea_popescu: if it outperforms it by 2 cents and 21 hundredths you make money.

05:26:38 Fun: atm 1.1939

05:26:50 Fun: I see

05:27:58 Fun: there is some vol on 11800.0

05:28:14 Fun: march 2015

05:30:15 Fun: so say 0.10 gain minus 0.0281 thats 0.7 approx * 125.000 right?

05:30:26 Fun: 0.0281 option cost

05:31:26 mircea_popescu: i like people who pretend their convenient misunderstanding is more powerful than reality.

05:32:30 decimation: the bid/ask spread on that mar 15 call runs about ~0.007

05:46:09 Fun: cool

05:46:12 Fun: makes sense

05:46:30 *: thestringpuller screams nanotube like Kirk sceams Khan.

05:47:09 Fun: decimation: which broker do u use?

05:47:19 decimation: td ameritrade

05:47:25 Fun: thats a big one

05:47:34 Fun: strange they dont offer whole range to you

05:47:44 Fun: decimation: also options prices seems so cheap

05:47:56 Fun: maybe I am missing something?

05:47:58 decimation: they are known for their platform

05:48:01 Fun: yes

05:48:10 Fun: canuck bank :D

05:52:34 ben_vulpes: !up fun

05:52:55 ben_vulpes: man how long can we keep this juggling act up?

05:53:41 Apocalyptic: it's gonna be a while

05:56:34 Fun: or change assbot rules?

05:56:34 Fun: :D

05:57:21 thestringpuller: Apocalyptic: you think gribble won't be back for a few days? Weeks?

05:57:37 thestringpuller: This is personally the longest I've ever seen gribble AWOL.

05:58:04 Apocalyptic: same here

05:58:34 ben_vulpes: pretty impressed that single point of failure went this long without failing.

05:58:57 ben_vulpes: i hope everyone's been taking backups of the db.

05:59:40 decimation: it's odd that gribble died the same time that bitstamp was hacked

06:01:15 Fun: not odd related

06:01:21 thestringpuller: ben_vulpes: the back up is on OTC website

06:01:26 thestringpuller: it's pretty redundant

06:01:27 ben_vulpes: fun and how would you know?

06:01:34 Fun: logic

06:01:38 ben_vulpes: thestringpuller: and how would you know if the db'd changed?

06:01:50 thestringpuller: That I cannot verify!

06:01:54 thestringpuller: OH NOES we have a dilemma

06:02:01 ben_vulpes: Fun: try again, that kind of statement doesn't hold any water with me.

06:02:06 Fun: decimation: so yes about forex dont u think those options are kinda cheap

06:02:22 decimation: I donno man, I don't really daytrade fx options

06:02:48 ben_vulpes: <mircea_popescu> [] i like people who pretend their convenient misunderstanding is more powerful than reality. << an amusing thing to cross at this moment

06:02:51 thestringpuller: ben_vulpes: in all srsns single point of access == single point of failure

06:03:01 Fun: decimation: nor do I however in light of recent geo political events it seems neat thing to do

06:03:01 danielpbarron: kakobrekla> any bitcoin poker site already struggles for existence or is half dead or completely dead << because they don't use the WoT

06:03:02 Fun: :D

06:03:13 mircea_popescu: <thestringpuller> This is personally the longest I've ever seen gribble AWOL. < same here.

06:03:26 mircea_popescu: <ben_vulpes> pretty impressed that single point of failure went this long without failing. << same here #2

06:03:39 Fun: as to reality if drunk person mistakes tree for say a monster he will hack it

06:03:44 thestringpuller: but what is the alternative? nanotube would have to trust someone else to maintain gateway into WoT?

06:04:04 Fun: so no matter how reality is perceived human action does alter it :D

06:05:12 ben_vulpes: meanie

06:05:37 thestringpuller: that was quick.

06:05:59 thestringpuller: damn, I guess we just pray nanotube isn't locked up in some mexican prison somewhere

06:06:31 ben_vulpes: where does extraordinary rendition happen these days?

06:06:42 mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes weren't you complaining bout the endless log an hour ago ?

06:07:23 ben_vulpes: watching the thing scroll by as my bouncer replays it makes things look longer than they are

17:53:28 mircea_popescu: well how do you know X is allowed to speak for me ?

17:54:02 mircea_popescu: unless the server is actually using my own keypair. which it conceivably could.

17:54:05 davout: GPG-signatures?

17:54:07 davout: ok

17:54:12 davout: server keypair

17:57:19 kakobrekla: its not like we gonna run out of internets anytime soon.

17:57:31 mircea_popescu: kakobrekla fraudsters rss is 15 minutes delayed anyway

17:57:58 davout: makes sense, the hash, salt and nonce fiddling is to prevent against replay right?

17:58:11 kakobrekla: set it 5min for fraudsters, 1 min for qntra etc

17:58:19 kakobrekla: forget the fetch nonsense.

17:58:20 mircea_popescu: davout no, it's to make mitm and masquerading much harder.

17:58:48 davout: apart from replaying i can't think of an example where GPG isn't enough a protection already

17:59:02 davout: s/enough/enough of/

17:59:47 davout: i was thinking rely on GPG and simply encode a nonce in the message

18:00:09 mircea_popescu: davout suppose i send spoofed ip messages.

18:00:15 mircea_popescu: i can encode to your public key.

18:00:16 mircea_popescu: what now ?

18:00:30 mircea_popescu: in the design as is, now you reject my junk because i don't know the salts.

18:00:42 davout: i discard your messages since it doesn't bear a valid GPG signature

18:00:51 mircea_popescu: messages don't need to be signed.

18:01:16 mircea_popescu: and this deliberately.

18:01:19 davout: if they were wouldn't that remove the salts requirements?

18:01:34 mircea_popescu: it would but it's moot, because i'm not about to require people to sign everything they say.

18:01:37 davout: because if you know the server's key, you're probably aware of the salts etc

18:01:50 davout: ic

18:01:57 mircea_popescu: how does that work ? you know my ip and his gpg pubkey.

18:02:05 mircea_popescu: how does this make it probable you have root on my box ?

18:02:21 davout: i meant if you raped the server for its key, you may as well have the salt and stuff

18:02:29 mircea_popescu: pubkey ?

18:02:37 davout: both

18:02:42 mircea_popescu: o you meant in your signed alt-spec. mkay.

18:06:43 davout: i didn't think of the requirement to sign as an issue actually

22:21:28 assbot: ASIRRA - Microsoft Research ... ( http://bit.ly/17e8yvh )

22:21:55 mike_c: Microsoft shut down their captcha service, which was causing that problem on the eulorum wiki.

22:22:22 mike_c: diana_coman: ^

22:22:35 diana_coman: ha ha mike_c

22:22:56 kakobrekla: what, computers got good at recognizing cats ?

22:23:08 mike_c: srsly. it was working really well too.

22:25:03 diana_coman: I never got why are people supposed to prove that they are not computers/bots, really

22:25:22 mike_c: before that captcha the wiki was swarmed with thousands of fake accounts and pages

22:25:37 mike_c: they were creating hundreds of users and pages a day

22:26:36 diana_coman: uhm, so you're saying that effectively for all behaviour, there really ARE more bots (be it blood and flesh and bones ones) than people around on the internets

22:26:39 diana_coman: could be, I guess

22:28:03 diana_coman: I confess I did not really look into it, but I'd rather look for some way to block bots away without the expense for actual humans - dunno, maybe some kind of timestamp check thing or something similar

22:28:22 mike_c: fraudsters tries that

22:28:31 diana_coman: and doesn't it succeed?

22:28:35 mike_c: and it is not unusual for it to catch humans

22:30:34 diana_coman: hmmm, I guess then the question remains on how often that happens

22:30:56 diana_coman: I mean: if you ask by default humans to prove, than it happens each and every time, really, no choice there

22:31:08 mike_c: only each and every time you post a link.

22:31:23 diana_coman: really? how is that?

22:31:39 mike_c: idk, the thing has some smarts. but that's why it worked sometimes and not others.

22:31:40 diana_coman: do you mean posting a link on fraudsters or on the wiki>

22:31:41 diana_coman: ?

22:31:44 mike_c: the wiki

22:31:54 diana_coman: a, ok, I don't know about that

22:32:08 diana_coman: at least it did not ask me to identify cats and dogs...

22:32:18 mike_c: the thing is, the fraudsters one is extremely frustrating when it misfires.

22:32:23 mike_c: because you don't know even know why

22:32:40 diana_coman: well, so you go and yell at the owner, lol

22:33:09 diana_coman: that must at least let some frustration out

22:33:10 mike_c: yes, but this is hardly a good solution for a wiki. you, for example, did not go yell at the owner

22:33:20 mike_c: you just didn't post

22:33:39 diana_coman: true, because I thought that well, if there is some interest in the thing, they will come asking on eulora /irc and then we sort it out

22:33:45 diana_coman: no need to sort it out earlier

22:33:52 diana_coman: and there you came asking, so it worked

22:34:10 diana_coman: I did raise the problem on eulora channel

22:34:11 mike_c: yes, but it took six weeks. picking some cat photos seems like less of a pain.

22:34:38 mike_c: but, this is religious debate.

22:34:40 diana_coman: on some days I admit I might send the cats and dogs and site to all hell and as a result not post

22:34:46 mike_c: hehe

22:34:49 diana_coman: but then again, that might be just me, I admit it

22:39:11 diana_coman: btw, out of curiosity: why is this eulorom site apart entirely from mingame.bz? I thought eulora was essentially made by minigame so I don't quite follow the different sites/lack of links or is there something I'm missing?

23:39:08 asciilifeform: punkman: [fpga thread] would MIPS be easier than x86? or does the problem lie in connecting the thing to outside world (fast RAM, peripherals, etc) << problem is that you can't make so much as a barrel shifter on any extant fpga without using a closed turd from the vendor - actually, two turds: one in the logic library part itself, other - the synthesis toolchain

23:40:49 asciilifeform: punkman: one can attempt to work with just the synthesis toolchain (no escape from it) and use netlists of 'raw' logic - i.e. simple universal constructs like 'nand gate'. the result - go try it - a very simple kindergarten-level circuit fills up the entire chip, with glacial performance (gate delays measured in msec!)

23:41:21 asciilifeform: this is because the entire fpga concept, as imagined by n00bs to the subject, does not actually work.

23:41:41 asciilifeform: folks doing actual work with fpga make very light use of the general-purpose routing matrix

23:41:50 asciilifeform: and of the LUTs

23:42:17 asciilifeform: mostly they hook up vendor 'library' parts together. these usually (though not always) correspond to miniature 'islands' of asic present on the chip

23:42:33 asciilifeform: e.g., an adder, a shifter, uart, 500 other kinds of part.

23:47:09 asciilifeform: punkman: but back to original question, mips is vastly easier to implement in programmable logic of whatever kind than x86. this ought to be obvious to anyone with even an evening's familiarity with both.

23:48:58 asciilifeform: anyone learn the fate of nanotube yet ?
