00:03:11 assbot: Logged on 04-06-2015 23:30:17; mod6: Update: bitcoin-v0.5.3.1-RELEASE + patches { Orphanage Thermonuke } + { TX Orphanage Amputation } fully snyc'd: 359443

00:04:00 mircea_popescu: danielpbarron 15:26:55 <@Samsai> oh, that game << holy shit, everyone knows ?!

00:05:12 mircea_popescu: oh i just derps derping, kay.

00:10:23 mod6: ok here are the charts, looks like it took about 7 days: http://thebitcoin.foundation/test/perf/v0_5_3_1-RELEASE-Plus-OrphanageThermonuke-And-TXOrphanageAmputation/20150604/

00:11:22 mircea_popescu: impressive dude. i think the current foundation bitcoin is actually better than mine o.O

00:12:13 assbot: ... ( http://bit.ly/1EYMNrO )

00:12:14 mod6: wow! yeah, this one didn't hit the OOM-Kill either, ran good the whole time without problems.

00:12:49 mod6: yup exactly.

00:13:36 trinque: very nice!

00:14:59 mod6: memory usage graph looks very similar to the previous run with the OrphanageThermonuke graph. That's expected, but just sayin'. Lookin good.

00:27:16 ben_vulpes: kakow, mod6

00:27:54 asciilifeform: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=05-06-2015#1154290 << l0ltr0nic!

00:27:54 assbot: Logged on 05-06-2015 00:11:22; mircea_popescu: impressive dude. i think the current foundation bitcoin is actually better than mine o.O

00:28:01 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: ^ better how?

00:28:55 mircea_popescu: moar reliable, for one o.O

00:28:58 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: and must nitpick, but it isn't the current therealbitcoin yet. not until patches are ratified.

00:29:18 mircea_popescu: i do not think i have seen a full sync with 0 pagefaults yuet

00:33:06 *: asciilifeform shudders that this set of graph axes exists: http://thebitcoin.foundation/test/perf/v0_5_3_1-RELEASE-Plus-OrphanageThermonuke-And-TXOrphanageAmputation/20150604/Page_Faults.png

00:33:07 assbot: ... ( http://bit.ly/1EYO2HL )

00:33:11 asciilifeform: 'page faults / second'

00:33:33 asciilifeform: who runs -what- that generates multiple page faults / hour, much less second ?

00:33:37 mod6: yeah, previous test with only OrphanageThermonuke did have at least one spot where a "major pagefault" was detected: http://thebitcoin.foundation/test/perf/v0_5_3_1-RELEASE-Plus-OrphanageThermonuke/20150512/Page_Faults.png

00:33:37 assbot: ... ( http://bit.ly/1EYO4PP )

00:33:55 asciilifeform: mod6: do we know in what process ?

00:34:10 asciilifeform: if it was bitcoind, i want the crash dump

00:34:18 asciilifeform: and that'd be pretty major

00:34:45 mod6: no, it's system level. all I can tell you is all that is running as far as 3rd party things are: bitcoind & nmon, otherwise i've had `vmstat 1` going.

00:35:01 asciilifeform: http://thebitcoin.foundation/test/perf/v0_5_3_1-RELEASE-Plus-OrphanageThermonuke-And-TXOrphanageAmputation/20150604/Memory.png << reasonably flat. but the 'whole machine' stats thing is a terrible kludge imho

00:35:02 assbot: ... ( http://bit.ly/1EYObe6 )

00:35:07 asciilifeform: gotta pick on just bitcoind

00:35:08 mod6: i'll continue to do more testing. we'll hopefully get something out of it.

00:35:16 asciilifeform: still neat pics

00:35:33 mod6: asciilifeform: yeah, i agree. it's not great, but it's something.

00:35:46 mod6: im gonna try some profiles this month.

00:35:49 asciilifeform: mod6: see if you can pluck the total # out of igprof

00:36:00 asciilifeform: i posted instructions for having it crap those out, i think

00:36:24 mod6: yup, will get to it... hopefully :] lot of things to work though this month.

00:36:54 asciilifeform: in other news...

00:36:55 asciilifeform: http://nosuchlabs.com/gpgkey/7ED61BA9F1483495BAB2CB60A5C9BE858F5C2B37C9856BDEE024A8C5518EB421

00:36:59 assbot: Welcome | Phuctor ... ( http://bit.ly/1EYOgOS )

00:37:29 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 89850 @ 0.00034924 = 31.3792 BTC [+] {2}

00:37:41 mod6: <+asciilifeform> mircea_popescu: and must nitpick, but it isn't the current therealbitcoin yet. not until patches are ratified. << we'll get there. I'd like to have a discussion at some point about the possible negitive effects of at least the TX Orphanage Amputation patch.

00:38:07 mod6: But so far, I feel good that these two patches fully sync'd and with some reasonable results.

00:38:10 asciilifeform: mod6: if you have an essay-length treatise on this, might be better to drop it in the mailing list

00:38:13 asciilifeform: otherwise here works

00:38:20 BingoBoingo: Damn, a double phuct'

00:38:37 asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: that was, i think, another 'magic list' item

00:38:44 mod6: yeah, i think just in here, we can discuss. be better for me to spend a bit of time thinking about it for a day or two.. sometime this week maybe.

00:38:45 BingoBoingo: Ah

00:38:55 mod6: ben_vulpes: should read up on this too ^^

00:39:15 asciilifeform: mod6: notably, bitcoind 0.5.3 stock actually had the orphan tx cache limit

00:39:26 asciilifeform: but i nuked the cache entirely in the interest of reducing fragging

00:39:49 asciilifeform: what i did not have time to do is to measure whether this had the intended effect.

00:40:34 asciilifeform: the other effect of nuking the tx orphanage is zapping the obvious ddos vector of folks crapping deliberately spurious tx into a node

00:40:58 asciilifeform: in general i favour the principle of 'if it cannot be verified RIGHT NOW, it is garbage'

00:41:47 asciilifeform: the very notion of storing things which 'might be verifiable later' runs against the overall flavour of a mechanism designed to face a -maximally- hostile universe

00:42:05 mod6: sure. i was kinda wondering about the converse side where there is an orphaned TX, and then what? guy just resends?

00:42:11 asciilifeform: where every other node is a gavinous abomination

00:42:31 asciilifeform: mod6: he rebroadcasts until finds a node that can accept it without 'jam tomorrow'

00:42:31 BingoBoingo: Last I checked Hearn still breathes so universe is still maximally hostile.

00:42:48 mod6: hah

00:43:00 asciilifeform: consider the actual scenario whereby a tx is 'orphan'

00:43:17 asciilifeform: i.e. what causes it to fall into that category ?

00:43:40 mod6: asciilifeform: ok. i'll have to think on that a bit more. i wanna be sure of what these changes imply. anyway, a guy can always patch his own if he wishes in the mean time.

00:43:46 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform 30064771079/4294967297 =... 7. so now we also have 7.

00:44:04 mircea_popescu: i am persuaded pretty much every prime up to 1k or so is present in the whole set.

00:44:15 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: this is a statistical certainty

00:44:35 mircea_popescu: ye

00:44:45 mod6: <+asciilifeform> i.e. what causes it to fall into that category ? << right, some sort of malformed tx or one that has some weird time in the tx that makes it get rejected or some such thing.

00:45:05 mircea_popescu: in general i favour the principle of 'if it cannot be verified RIGHT NOW, it is garbage' << i agree with the wisdom of this, for the reasons stated.

00:45:10 asciilifeform: mod6: it is absolutely essential to understand the mechanics

00:45:54 mod6: more over, is there a "normal" situation that arises where a guy is trying to create a transaction and it becomes an orphan? his system time is off? many things i suppose...

00:45:57 asciilifeform: an 'orphan tx' is simply one which references a tx which is not yet seen

00:46:27 asciilifeform: this can happen if multiple interdependent tx are sent in quick succession

00:47:22 asciilifeform: say, from a robotic 'hot wallet'

00:47:48 mod6: so [A_tx]<-[B_tx] are both sent

00:48:28 mod6: B is recieved before A, so B is 'orphan'

00:48:31 asciilifeform: if no one had an orphan tx cache at all, the robot would be the only one broadcasting B until A is in a block.

00:48:44 asciilifeform: no one would rebroadcast it for him

00:48:50 asciilifeform: because it could be a work of fiction

00:49:04 mod6: ok

00:49:36 asciilifeform: whereas right now there is 'benefit of the doubt', largely harmless because 1) 'everyone' has infinite ram 2) no one is crapping out spurious tx in earnest

00:49:37 mod6: yeah, like i said, i gotta look into it. :]

00:49:53 mircea_popescu: practically, this might put a dent in dice type services, in the sense that it'd slow them down by ~10 minutes

00:49:58 mircea_popescu: not sure this is terribru

00:50:28 asciilifeform: 'CoinJoin' will also die.

00:50:32 BingoBoingo: Kinda why listable Satoshidice worked as it did

00:51:24 asciilifeform: as far as i'm concerned, nuking the tx orphanage cuts away some of the remaining 'promise' crud from the protocol, leaving the cold metal for which i for one love it

00:51:34 asciilifeform: i will not cry for the 'promises'

00:52:53 asciilifeform: also note that you (node) are free to broadcast a tx that refers to a not-yet-in-block tx. just that other people will throw it straight to dev null

00:52:55 mircea_popescu: coinjoin is not even stupid it's so fucking dumb.

00:53:01 asciilifeform: aha

00:53:14 mircea_popescu: let's stick to considering things that have a shot at making sense.

00:53:15 asciilifeform: srsly one can't take so much as a shit without some 'coder' building a 'career' on it

00:54:06 asciilifeform: the implications of requiring a tx to refer -only- to tx in blocks in order to be rebroadcastable can be described exhaustively

00:54:14 asciilifeform: we may have already done so - or not

00:54:21 BingoBoingo: srsly one can't take so much as a shit without some 'coder' building a 'career' on it << Coders are like asparagus in this way. They love their easy nitrogen and phosphorous

00:54:36 mircea_popescu: anyway, i'll be running this too.

00:54:53 mircea_popescu: see if anyone can spot a problem with it.

00:54:57 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: if running tests, consider the igprof patch

00:55:02 asciilifeform: it is very very spiffy

00:55:12 mircea_popescu: mp is still not a coder. his magics lie elsewhere.

00:55:14 asciilifeform: needless to say, do not use in battlefield conditions

00:55:19 asciilifeform: (for one thing, it brings in dl)

00:55:42 mircea_popescu: ima think about this while playing go with people who are also thinking about this, how's that.

00:58:35 mod6: ok back. yeah, so... I'll dig into this for sure here this month. Hopefully sooner, rather than later. I wanna make sure the whole thing 'fits in head' before we move forward. But so far, looking good.

00:59:16 mod6: Also, i believe that the removal of the dnsseed is going to be on the docket as well. but again, we'll see how it goes.

00:59:50 mircea_popescu: mod6 i don't recall, is that patch written yet ?

01:00:09 mod6: yeah, alf submitted it back in feb i think.

01:00:11 *: mod6 finds.

03:15:28 decimation: Zhao Gao knew how to play the actors

03:15:35 asciilifeform: decimation: the concept described in the linked piece is known as 'shit test' to the pua enthusiasts

03:15:56 decimation: yeah more-or-less

03:16:13 decimation: but the important element is that one must 'make believe' in the appropriate way

03:16:36 decimation: In the West of course we have Hans Christen Andersen?s tale about the kid and the emperor?s new clothes. The funny part is it?s fiction. And the story is just about a child, who having a pure heart, dares to say the truth against the powerful.

03:16:38 mats: fun fact: 'zhao gao' also translates to 'terrible'

03:16:41 decimation: The moral is that we should be ashamed of ourselves and aspire to be as virtuous as this child. But of course in reality this child would have been arrested and executed, alongside his parents. Which is obviously why nobody tells the king about his new clothes. They?re not stupid.

03:16:58 *: williamdunne is off for the night

03:17:21 asciilifeform: the yudkowskyans call it 'evaporative cooling' (to describe why doomsday cults on day n+1 after planned 'doomsday' not only do not fall apart, but get more 'culty')

03:17:59 asciilifeform: named for physical effect where fastest molecules phase off into vapour and whole thing has lower energy as per boltzmann

03:18:04 decimation: asciilifeform: but there's an interesting parallel to usg: they 'won' the cold war, yet failed to unemploy the 'national security' complex

03:18:08 asciilifeform: (for those who slept through school)

03:18:18 decimation: now they want to bring of the end of days by destroying terrorism

03:18:38 asciilifeform: the 'eternal war' thing is summarized by herr orwell

03:19:10 decimation: but the deeply weird thing is that nobody questions - 'oh those people who were working on red commies are now working on terrorism'

03:19:23 decimation: that's a great set of clothes. the deer is a fine horse, etc

03:19:24 trinque: "freedom from terrorism" is a particularly insidious concept

03:19:27 trinque: that jumped out at me right away

03:19:39 trinque: I expect to hear that phrase again

03:21:28 asciilifeform: trinque: it arguably descends from u.s. hitler (fdr) 's phrase 'freedom from fear'

03:21:42 trinque: didn't our thing eat all his useful folks?

03:21:44 trinque: sounds about right

03:21:45 decimation: Spandrell made another good point in his next post: "Say a woman that gets a job before of a female quota, but is chosen specifically because she isn?t a loud feminist and does not abuse her legal privilege. Will she ever abandon feminism? Most likely not. After all she owes her job to feminism, even if she had to take a second sanity test. But she has nothing to win, and quite a lot to lose from abolishing female quotas."

03:22:01 decimation: ^ how usg employment works

03:22:55 asciilifeform: phun phakt for non-u.s. folks: usg contractors who are registered as 'woman-owned' get preferential contract status. the practical consequence of this is that a great many operators of such firms have them registered in wife's name

03:23:10 asciilifeform: (makes for interesting divorce proceedings, one might imagine)

03:23:38 pete_dushenski: or tighter pre-nups

03:23:52 asciilifeform: pete_dushenski: pre-nups, as a general rule, don't work in usa

03:24:02 pete_dushenski: for real ?

03:24:24 asciilifeform: (more accurately, they work in the same manner as patents. which is to say, if you have infinite money and are willing to spend most of it on lawyers, it can be made to 'work' in a way.)

03:24:27 decimation: asciilifeform: also there's supposedly a super-category for minorities/handicapped/veterans

03:52:09 asciilifeform: romans had not yet calculating machines, and did not have anything quite like modern 'derivatives' etc

05:26:55 trinque: which is to say, if you wouldn't do it outside the police station, don't do it on a phone either

05:26:58 trinque: should be obvious

05:27:20 trinque: if you want a phone which does not track your every step, you will not find it

05:27:34 trinque: nor one that respects the privacy of the data you store on it

05:27:38 trinque: so on

05:28:08 danielpbarron: shmadz, if you find yourself in the situation where you need to gpg on the go, you are finding yourself in the wrong situations

05:28:14 trinque: well put

05:29:16 shmadz: thank you, not the answer I'm looking for, but this makes me think there is an opportunity to make the device I want. why is there not secure Linux that can run on a phone-like device?

05:29:33 trinque: man, I dunno that there's a secure linux either

05:29:38 trinque: it's not a 1 or 0 thing

05:29:44 trinque: depends on who the adversary is

05:29:50 danielpbarron: reminds me of the failed key signing party at the last porc fest -- the one after which nobody ended up getting their key signed because all the time was taken setting up a temporary key server when all we had to do was trade fingerprints and sign it later back at home

05:35:03 shmadz: ok, thanks for your help, and thanks for the !up, I think I'm gonna try a remote server to manage the keys, and just remote in from the phone? I don't see any secure solution to my problem atm

05:36:04 danielpbarron: the keys don't need to be on the remote server

05:36:48 danielpbarron: another computer can and should be used to sign and decrypt, and this computer should not be connected to any networks

05:38:42 shmadz: ok, just like offline signing bitcoin transactions? so you use USB to transfer? or you do it by hand? Or what?

05:39:53 danielpbarron: some use a qr code scanner

05:57:19 asciilifeform: it is guaranteed to be a factor in all moduli matching the 'magic 98' pattern

05:57:54 asciilifeform: you can prove this fact

05:57:59 asciilifeform: but i am leaving it as an exercise

05:58:45 asciilifeform: (hint: 4294967297 == 2^32 + 1)

05:59:44 asciilifeform: (Apocalyptic may have posted the proof somewhere in the logs already. i can't recall.)

06:00:38 asciilifeform: i will note that -not all- phuctored moduli to date are in 'magic98', nor have all of the 98 been (thus far) phuctored or even attempted

06:01:20 asciilifeform: but elementarily, all of them are expected to appear prior to the end of the churn of the sks dump circa last month

06:01:40 asciilifeform: (on account of all of them being divisible by 4294967297)

06:04:35 ben_vulpes: what i did not have time to do is to measure whether this had the intended effect. << how would you measure fragging?

06:05:31 asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: can only be (easily) measured indirectly

06:05:56 asciilifeform: sorta like 'dark matter'

06:06:21 asciilifeform: that is, process has heavy 'footprint' but sum of allocations is a small fraction of it

06:07:08 asciilifeform: the only conclusive test for fragging is manually sweating over a memory dump 'with magnifying glass'

06:08:01 asciilifeform: (there may exist an instrumented allocator which will actually complain about being unable to find an appropriately-sized free block, but i am unaware of it)

06:08:07 ben_vulpes: i'm starting to not be surprised by the failure of modern computing tools

16:32:54 mircea_popescu: me) in a building with a swimming pool, two gyms, and a variety of other luxurious facilities. Their health care is free through some combination of Medicaid, Obamacare, and a city-run health system. Their food is mostly free through food stamps. They can get cash from TANF and some similar programs. They would need to earn at least $160,000 per year pre-tax to obtain the same standard of living at market prices. Howev

16:32:55 mircea_popescu: er, even if someone were to offer the adults in the family a $160,000 per year job it would not be rational for them to accept it. If they were ever to lose that job it would take many years of paperwork, bureaucracy, and waiting lists to get back to their current welfare lifestyle."

22:32:38 kakobrekla: hence rss suicide joke.

22:32:45 asciilifeform: kakobrekla: ?

22:33:12 kakobrekla: i thought it was in the bash somewhere

22:33:56 funkenstein_: greets - I'm curious what all y'all have to say about moxie's review of gpg

22:34:09 funkenstein_: http://www.thoughtcrime.org/blog/gpg-and-me/

22:34:09 assbot: Moxie Marlinspike >> Blog >> GPG And Me ... ( http://bit.ly/1Hambua )

22:34:12 kakobrekla: anyway, the idea was that Aaron Swartz made suicide precisely because of RSS

22:34:15 asciilifeform: !s marlinspike

22:34:16 assbot: 12 results for 'marlinspike' : http://s.b-a.link/?q=marlinspike

22:34:21 asciilifeform: funkenstein_ ^

22:34:54 funkenstein_: ah thanks... *runs to catch up*

22:35:01 asciilifeform: funkenstein_: short version - mr m is a usg shill

22:35:16 funkenstein_: :o

22:35:56 trinque: til he picked that name on purpose

22:36:09 kakobrekla: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com//?date=12-01-2015#975028 yeah.

22:36:09 assbot: Logged on 12-01-2015 23:56:21; kakobrekla: whoever responsible for rss should commit suicide.

22:36:09 asciilifeform: trinque: it's a navalism, like 'mark twain'

22:36:31 funkenstein_: maybe he saw the future of reddit

22:36:37 trinque: asciilifeform: yep, sounded like hippie parents to me

22:36:42 shinohai: lol

22:36:53 asciilifeform: and naggum then perhaps performed seppuku to atone for xml

22:37:47 mircea_popescu: motherfucker NOTHING WORKS

22:37:51 asciilifeform: aha.

22:38:01 mircea_popescu: open source is an open invitation to waste your life debugging stupid shti

22:38:05 asciilifeform: aha.

22:38:26 mircea_popescu: 19:42:04 Error: Connection timed out.

22:38:29 asciilifeform: mine?

22:38:35 mircea_popescu: is pureftpd up and listening oin port ? yes.

22:38:42 mircea_popescu: is port open in firewall ? yes.

22:38:47 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: passive mode ?

22:39:01 mircea_popescu: and what am i to do, go rebuild apache or install alsa or what the fucking shit already

22:39:06 asciilifeform: ftp by default on many systems expects an idiot back-connect

22:39:17 asciilifeform: on random (yes) port

22:39:45 mircea_popescu: forcing passive doesn't do anything

22:41:22 asciilifeform: would have to sniff packets on both sides and see where, if anywhere, they went. alternatively, set fire to it

22:42:33 trinque: dwarf fortress tends to come to mind there

22:42:41 trinque: you could learn how to play, and it might end up being fun, but wtf bother

22:42:42 mircea_popescu: yes, because that's what i'm going to do with my time, sniff motherfucking packlets.

22:42:55 jurov: cazalla, i got it fine quickly from cs

22:42:58 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: see also earlier (20 min or so) thread re: rss

22:47:50 asciilifeform: factors 3, 7, 11, 23

22:48:36 cazalla: jurov, any idea what this is on the cs-winlibs install? can't find C:\Program Files (x86)\MSYS\msys\1.0\etc\profile when installing MSYS integration settings

22:48:37 asciilifeform: https://pgp.mit.edu/pks/lookup?search=line%40home.com&op=index << and, as always, somebody 'helpfully' uploaded it 'on top of' this fella's genuine key

22:48:38 assbot: Search results for 'line home com' ... ( http://bit.ly/1HaoEVx )

22:49:27 jurov: you don't have msys, nor vs, that can be safely cancelled

22:49:39 jurov: cazalla ^

22:51:01 cazalla: hmm no go, missing MSVCP100D.dll

22:51:57 jurov: damn

22:53:14 asciilifeform: hm, 'line home com' has -two identical- keys, uploaded on same date, bitwise same

22:53:27 jurov: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=5555 cazalla you can try this

22:53:28 assbot: Download Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package (x86) from Official Microsoft Download Center ... ( http://bit.ly/1RQWdPF )

22:53:31 asciilifeform: so no sample of undiddled modulus for this key is known.

22:53:41 cazalla: jurov, just did, same error

22:54:21 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: this is the second or perhaps third instance thus far that i have found so far of someone who -will- be spoken to using phucked key if anyone ever bothers to speak to him

22:55:14 asciilifeform: aaand we are now at precisely 40 phucked moduli.

22:59:19 assbot: dpaste: 3A2ZYVP ... ( http://bit.ly/1Haqe9I )

23:00:09 mircea_popescu: <cazalla> crystalspace3d.org is slow as fuck to get cs-win32libs-2.1_003.exe from btw << link ? jurov can then mirror it along with everything else.

23:01:20 cazalla: jurov problem with what i'm doing or the client? not sure what else i can do here now

23:02:25 mircea_popescu: for the record, my ftp problem was that someone had the bright idea of allowing port 21, but not port 20.

23:02:28 mircea_popescu: needless to say...

23:07:53 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: earlier link to freshly phucked key

23:10:35 asciilifeform: kakobrekla: can the rss thing be made to work as expected in the form of a #b-a bot ? or too b0rk3d

23:12:00 jurov: asciilifeform: you mean bot reading rss feed? we have that.

23:14:17 williamdunne: Scoopbot can read any RSS or atom feed

23:14:32 kakobrekla: as far as i can tell dates are incorrect but the order is correct in your feed ? thats workable. perhaps scoop can cover it. i can too.

23:14:38 asciilifeform: williamdunne: the dates are entirely unusable. see thread

23:15:04 asciilifeform: i recall that mircea_popescu asked for a real-time phuctor ticker.

23:15:08 asciilifeform: hence why i attempted it

23:16:27 kakobrekla: williamdunne be my guest!

23:23:05 williamdunne: asciilifeform: Dates aren't involved in Scoop's processes

23:23:32 williamdunne: Thoroughly ignored by him.

23:24:05 williamdunne: Uses a persisted Map of URLs to objects. Messages when he sees a new one

23:24:24 asciilifeform: what determines 'new' ?

23:24:35 williamdunne: Whether or not the URL is in the map

23:24:42 asciilifeform: and stores forever ?

23:24:56 williamdunne: Persisted, yes

23:25:04 asciilifeform: thing is, it is actually possible for the same phuctor url to be new twice.

23:25:15 asciilifeform: rss provided no sane way to handle this.

23:25:25 williamdunne: In this case I may have to make a custom set of rules for Phuctor

23:25:43 williamdunne: This is not a problem, so long as something changes between first seen and the update

23:25:52 williamdunne: (title, ideally)

23:26:35 asciilifeform: it is entirely possible for same key to be 'new' twice in succession.

23:27:25 williamdunne: Within how long of each other?

23:27:35 asciilifeform: immediately.

23:27:47 williamdunne: Well then why does this matter? Scoop shares it once and you see both

23:28:11 asciilifeform: it doesn't matter. just pointing out that the thing follows literally none of the prescribed assumptions

23:28:24 asciilifeform: wouldn't want scoopbot to choke on it

23:28:51 williamdunne: Fair enough, think he'll do fine. Fits in quite well with his existing logic

23:30:57 shinohai: https://np.reddit.com/r/Bitcoin/comments/38mhrh/call_me_inconsiderate_but_this_is_why_i_dont_take/crw6atd

23:30:58 assbot: luke-jr comments on Call me inconsiderate, but THIS is why I don't take Luke-Jr seriously: He lost the majority of his coins on Mt. Gox when there were signs FOR MONTHS to NOT keep coins there. He lacks the ability to properly gauge situations and look into the future. ... ( http://bit.ly/1Jxr94n )

23:31:13 mircea_popescu: thing is, it is actually possible for the same phuctor url to be new twice. << it'll be fine im sure.

23:32:50 asciilifeform: was just pointing out the braindamage of the whole concept of rss

23:33:02 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 78850 @ 0.00035104 = 27.6795 BTC [-]

23:33:13 asciilifeform: (and this is entirely aside from the idiocy of how servers get polled continuously, etc)

23:33:18 williamdunne: >just using it for safekeeping

23:33:19 williamdunne: Yes

23:33:22 williamdunne: RSS is silly

23:33:40 williamdunne: With Scoop I worked out a structure that fixes some of the issues

23:33:43 williamdunne: i.e Dates

23:34:28 williamdunne: Re: polling, what would you suggest as the alternative? Websockets?

23:34:45 asciilifeform: williamdunne: no

23:34:51 asciilifeform: williamdunne: a proper internet

23:35:12 asciilifeform: as in, we take everything post-1990 or so and shoot it. then start over.

23:35:26 williamdunne: I'll get working on it on Monday

23:35:30 williamdunne: ;)

23:35:30 asciilifeform: l0l

23:38:26 williamdunne: Anyhow, what in particular is wrong with it? While there is a host of derpy technologies I'm quite fond of some things - like WebSockets

23:38:40 asciilifeform: williamdunne: fundamentally - the idiot polling

23:38:45 asciilifeform: all else follows from this.

23:39:32 williamdunne: Isn't that the point of WebSockets, getting rid of derpy polling?

23:39:43 williamdunne: No moar ajax polling
