02:33:44 adlai: fluffypony: pankkake asked a very specific question about your project.
02:34:58 *: adlai wishes more people would use their brains (especially those parts that protrude so dangerously far from the pineal gland), rather than relying on the big black brotha wearing a shiny vest and earning minimum wage to tell airportgoers to "walk THIS way"
02:35:23 adlai: not that there is anything wrong with airport security! :D
09:48:14 kakobrekla: he asked about the size of the blingchain and txes neh?
14:57:42 pankkake: kakobrekla: is that the asus/amd boards that work with coreboot? wow
14:57:52 pankkake: I have yet to buy 1
14:58:03 pankkake: and buy the nuclear power plant to power all that
15:06:23 kakobrekla: yeah thats it. they can run coreboot/libreboot and openbmc is also supported if you wanna go that route
15:13:16 kakobrekla: oddly one of four has a second socket for a second battery installed (top right mobo), any guesses to what would that be for?
15:14:59 pankkake: oh right, the others have the place for a socket but don't have it
15:15:15 kakobrekla: yup
15:15:36 pankkake: it's kinda insulting
15:15:44 kakobrekla: they came from same source, yet...
15:16:38 pankkake: it's not on the manual diagrams
15:17:51 kakobrekla: must be powering them gratis chips from china :)
15:19:46 pankkake: hehe
17:46:24 fluffypony: adlai: ahhh thanks I missed that
17:46:42 fluffypony: pankkake: the switch Bulletproofs for range proofs has reduced tx sizes by like 80%
17:47:41 fluffypony: that's a typical 2 input, 2 output tx with an encrypted payment ID
17:47:54 fluffypony: Tx size: 2.6553 kB
17:48:39 fluffypony: that's a typical 2 input, 2 output Bitcoin transaction
17:48:52 fluffypony: Size 483 (bytes)
17:48:52 fluffypony: Weight 1932
17:50:32 fluffypony: so about 5.5x larger txs than Bitcoin
18:23:34 pankkake: nice
19:32:21 fluffypony: pankkake: there are other scalability concerns, but the size stuff is a good starting point
19:34:42 kakobrekla: do/did you have a block size limit at all?
19:44:08 fluffypony: kakobrekla: it's dynamic, so miners can create blocks slightly above the median
19:44:20 fluffypony: and the median is based on blocks over the past day or so
19:44:23 fluffypony: throwing out the outliers
19:44:47 kakobrekla: ah yeah right, forgot about that.

22:11:23 kakobrekla: if anyone from us is looking for d16 mobos, apparently newegg is giving them away for free for a few more days
22:26:28 kakobrekla: while you are trying to run saner x86, https://homes.cs.washington.edu/~bornholt/post/z3-iphone.html
