00:01:24 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 11900 @ 0.00056824 = 6.7621 BTC [+] {4}

00:01:51 ben_vulpes: mats: the expanse is a surprisingly high-quality-for-such-a-low-budget scifi flick

00:01:53 ben_vulpes: er, show

00:02:25 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 4650 @ 0.00056425 = 2.6238 BTC [-] {2}

00:02:29 ben_vulpes: the nullg scenes are judiciously placed for effect most of the time

00:03:00 ben_vulpes: for instance the blood cloud that collapsed when the martian warship began its burn was pretty good

00:03:26 ben_vulpes: but the drifting thinger in the cabin of episode 7? 6? was hilariously bad.

00:03:33 ben_vulpes: mats: did you ever read the books?

00:03:54 mats: i finished Leviathan Wakes, didn't get around to the others, but i will now

00:04:04 ben_vulpes: fairly entertaining

00:04:10 ben_vulpes: no actual physics violations iirc

00:04:26 ben_vulpes: mebbe the 'stealth' tech

00:05:08 mats: i know enough physics to put my pants on in the morning

00:05:32 ben_vulpes: "and enough statistics to place myself at the top of the bell curve"

00:06:02 mats: hay, small enough sample and i can be whatever i wanna be!

00:11:41 ben_vulpes: the throwaway joke mats is that the top of the bell curve is entirely average, just like putting on pants in the morning

00:12:21 mats: i got the joke, yo.

00:14:15 ben_vulpes: aight aight

00:25:13 ben_vulpes: asciilifeform, mod6: if pressing is intended to be curated by patch selection in the patches dir, seals in the sealsdir and keys in the wotdir, why does "press" need to take a head?

00:25:23 ben_vulpes: not a pressing question.

01:54:00 mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo it's pretty flattering, in honesty. look at all the things i have time to do in a day!

02:20:30 ben_vulpes: mircea_popescu: is this return to copying of loglines instead of referencing the log an attempt to make life easier for the future archaeologists by not polluting the global threadspace?

02:21:00 mircea_popescu: nah, dpeends if i load from log. webpage or from the scrollback

02:21:16 mircea_popescu: i'd have thought the referencing is easier

04:10:26 adlai: hmm, this is a bit confusing of gribble: block #397151 still uses the same difficulty. it determines the next difficulty, but the first block using the new diff is 397152

04:13:03 ben_vulpes: adlai: just out of curiosity, do you have historical mempool data?

04:13:44 adlai: kinda sorta http://log.bitcoin-assets.com//?date=05-03-2015#1043341

04:13:44 assbot: Logged on 05-03-2015 22:14:45; mike_c: mm, not quite. because order book could have been better than price history at times

04:13:55 adlai: (the relevant bits are the "mm, not quite")

04:14:26 adlai: ultimately, it doesn't matter in quite a similar manner to how past orderbook data doesn't matter

05:12:37 ben_vulpes: ascii_rear: i recall reading in the log that your vtron's implicit pressing behavior is asciibetical up to indicated head, but i'm having trouble reconciling that with other reqs i once read: that vs press longest chain, and also that vs press all usable patches. would that accurately modify to 'longest chain up to indicated head'?

05:48:12 ben_vulpes: yeah i basically have nfi how vdiff is making the per-file hashes happen

05:48:16 ben_vulpes: C'EST UN MYSTERE

05:49:08 ben_vulpes: ^^ asciilifeform, mod6, phf, polarbeard, mircea_popescu: if any of you are willing to explain the inscrawkutable vdiff to my maleducated self i'd be much obliged

05:57:13 mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes just hashes the file content, what ?

05:59:05 ben_vulpes: mircea_popescu: how is it disambiguated from $2, which is the dir input to diff?

05:59:37 mircea_popescu: it recurses through the dir, neh ?

05:59:49 ben_vulpes: oh because that's in the context of the awk statement and the file path is the second entry in that context?

06:00:15 ben_vulpes: keep in mind that awk is acting on the text output of diff, it's not recursing anywhere

08:23:58 punkman: the obvious stuff: file deletes without needing to dump whole file in the diff. also thinking on how to handle simple renames.

08:25:39 punkman: perhaps a token-replace operation, but then we are venturing in ascii's "turing-complete-diff"

08:37:03 ben_vulpes: adlai: do you know how to rebind a var to a specific value at the beginning of every iteration through a loop in cl?

08:37:10 ben_vulpes: (and wouldja share if so?)

08:38:48 punkman: is it different than setting a regular variable?

08:40:03 ben_vulpes: for's rebind, with's do not?

08:40:24 adlai: correct, but the full picture is much more subtle

08:40:34 adlai: for x = init then next

08:40:45 adlai: leaving out next rebinds to init each time

08:40:53 ben_vulpes: huh

08:41:26 ben_vulpes: clhs keeps failing me

08:41:42 ben_vulpes: and 'loop for black belts' has a limited set of recipes.

08:41:47 punkman: inspect it in the repl?

08:42:15 adlai: this no-next-defaults-to-init behavior is potentially confusing because the do macro does not have this behavior

20:33:00 mircea_popescu: well no, not really april yet. there should prolly be some discussion for a new one huh.

20:33:03 ben_vulpes: you proposed changes, but i'm not seeing those changes cemented anywhere.

20:33:15 maqp: Handle is mixed play with markus, nickname maku, how q is pronounced ku and p and q in crypto

20:33:17 ben_vulpes: right, and given the extremely long lead time for review around here i want to kick the conversation off now

20:33:18 mircea_popescu: iirc that update got applied or not ?

20:33:34 ben_vulpes: i dunno i'm not diffing your html with my face

20:33:49 mircea_popescu: pretty sure it was applied then.

20:34:07 mircea_popescu: and what, you dunno who the peers are ? for shame!

20:34:10 ben_vulpes: o wait this'd be the canonical list

20:34:30 mircea_popescu: this shit, you must keep in your head.

20:34:43 mircea_popescu: computers lie.

20:34:51 maqp: As far as it goes with cast iron list, it remains to be seen who's now closer to "terrorists"

20:34:55 ben_vulpes: fair nuff.

20:37:00 mircea_popescu: i wonder how gabriel spoonful's doing these days.

20:37:57 maqp: So anyway, as far as the TFC goes, NaCl is the first one to provide practical public key crypto

20:38:14 ben_vulpes: ;;seen diametric

20:38:15 gribble: diametric was last seen in #bitcoin-assets 1 week, 1 day, 21 hours, 42 minutes, and 31 seconds ago: <diametric> not sure that makes it a trivial non-crime at that point.

20:38:34 maqp: I tried it earlier, but the classic Diffie-Hellman had much less security and a lot longer public key

20:39:13 maqp: The current version has 72 hex char key you have to manually type to transmitter device; it's similar to manually typing Ricochet/Tox ID

20:39:24 maqp: Since it's ECDHE, the security is actually 3072-bit RSA equivalent

20:39:26 mircea_popescu: !up pussyfreak

20:39:37 pussyfreak: thanks

20:39:47 ben_vulpes: i propose excising artifexd from the lordship, and i further propose adding phf to it

20:40:20 mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes no objection ; and in light of the traverser no objection.

20:40:25 maqp: unfortunaltely that's the only way to prevent nation state from remotely injecting malware to transmitter device after setup

20:40:40 mircea_popescu: maqp but you could type base64 ?

20:40:46 ben_vulpes: traverser and *myriad* other contributions.

20:41:12 maqp: That could work of course, base58 might be better as there's less similar looking chars

20:41:12 ben_vulpes: also does lordship survive termination of corporeal instantiation?

20:41:19 mircea_popescu: chetty should also come off, seeing how she's no more.

20:41:26 mircea_popescu: i don't see how it could.

20:41:29 ben_vulpes: aha precisely what i was asking.

20:41:32 punkman: maqp, is that a carter-wegman MAC in your otp version?

20:41:36 mircea_popescu: maqp right. fewer keystrokes anyway

20:42:38 maqp: punkman: It's a classical one-time MAC with excess key expenditure. Not a good idea I admit

20:42:49 ben_vulpes: i also don't quite know what mthreat's doing in there beyond running search and being a known usg antagonist.

20:43:02 mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes well, the search is running ok. this is a thing.

20:43:24 ben_vulpes: 'running ok' is the criteria?

20:43:44 mircea_popescu: my thinking, vague as i admit it may be, is that if the guy's service is running, the guy is ok.

20:43:48 ben_vulpes: i don't intend this as an attack on mthreat, trying only to tease out the logic.

20:43:58 mircea_popescu: otherwise what, wipe mike_c because he had a kid ? nonsense i say!

20:43:58 ben_vulpes: yes but /inclusion in the lordship/ for that?

20:44:07 mircea_popescu: well hes' included already.

20:44:16 maqp: mircea_popescu: indeed. I just figured the few extra chars were't that important, and that typing upper/lower case might make it slower. I'll have to look into that

20:44:33 mircea_popescu: maqp so you could do base 37 lol.

20:45:16 maqp: I wonder if there's a library for that

20:45:25 mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes generally i'm thinking, to make it in people gotta put you in ; but once you're in, yoiu're in, and baring disaster you stay in.

20:45:41 maqp: But since users are verifying the public key over Signal call

20:46:20 maqp: having to say "upper case B, lower case c".. is almost as bad as the one used in Telegram

20:46:31 maqp: "lightish square, a bit darker square, white square"...

20:46:32 ben_vulpes: mircea_popescu: if you don't show up in the forum, marshall hoplits on demand, are you still a senator?

20:46:46 mircea_popescu: yup. it's called lacoonism.

20:46:52 punkman: lol

20:47:12 mircea_popescu: as long as you do what's expected of you - no case can be brought.

20:48:02 maqp: But since you don't have to read the public key in Base58 format, it could use two different encodings

20:48:06 ben_vulpes: izzat a coon pun?

20:48:42 mircea_popescu: no, it's a historical reference.

20:48:59 mircea_popescu: WITH an interspersed poon.

20:49:04 maqp: Base36 would reduce public key length to 56 chars

20:49:04 mircea_popescu: i mean pun

20:49:15 maqp: (checksum included)

20:49:17 mircea_popescu: maqp better than 72 i'd say

20:49:27 maqp: indeed. I'll look into that <:

20:49:38 mircea_popescu: as the saying goes, #b-a presence counts for 30 iq points.

20:49:43 ben_vulpes: aha!

20:51:06 maqp: NaCl also lets you pre-share 256-bit XSalsa20-Poly1305 keys. It was the only practical post-quantum solution at the moment

20:52:07 punkman: what's CEV?

20:52:17 maqp: CEV is the cascading encryption version

23:06:08 maqp: Then TFC can really help since Tails and Pidgin only see TFC ciphertexts

23:06:42 mircea_popescu: aha.

23:06:57 mircea_popescu: you should prolly also look into the vaporware that still is gossipd.

23:07:04 maqp: So breaking the anonymity won't reveal content of chat that could compromise their identity

23:07:26 maqp: Vaporware?

23:09:01 mircea_popescu: it's this secure communication thing dreamed up by b-a.

23:28:00 maqp: I see nothing being discussed about forward secrecy or deniability

23:28:02 phf: maqp: that was the original proposal, that outlines some principles, but there's been a lot of discussion in the logs about it

23:28:11 mircea_popescu: maqp neither of these are of any interest here.

23:28:30 maqp: So it's a secure chat with track record?

23:28:37 maqp: Have you discussed the threat model?

23:29:23 mircea_popescu: you'll probably get overloaded with reading material, but anyway, the general idea is that only children could possibly imagine anonimity is a sufficient substitute for lack of sovereignity. a reasona . a discussion in more detail is in http://fraudsters.com/2012/anonimity-or-the-urban-versus-rural-dispute/

23:33:49 mircea_popescu: well it would, because we don't even agree on what "infosec" is.

23:34:32 maqp: There's nothing bad being a Moose. It can be hard to be a moose when your family is being tortured in another room when you chose not to use anonymity to hide participation in dissidence movement

23:34:48 maqp: I think we need both

23:34:54 mircea_popescu: people with families do not belong in "dissidence movements", providing such exist.

23:35:41 maqp: it depends on how well they can weigh the threat and what track record the tools of their OPSEC have

23:36:17 mircea_popescu: no, they philosophically have no business there. once you've decided to settle down and reproduce, you've by that token accepted the world as is, declared your own submission to it and all that.

23:36:34 maqp: It doesn't have to be a family, it might be a parent, friend, someone we look up to

23:36:35 mircea_popescu: what's this game of everythingsies, i wanna be tanned but also untanned and sit in the sun and the moon at the same time bla bla.

23:36:46 mircea_popescu: if you are the sort of person who cares, you are the sort of person who cares.

23:37:05 mircea_popescu: no amount of "infosec" is going to change the fact that for any discussion on these lines, you go with the sucker herd.

23:38:05 mircea_popescu: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com//?date=23-01-2016#1382256 << something like that.

23:46:12 maqp: So the urban vs rural talks about anonymity being a "rat in a sewer"

23:46:20 mircea_popescu: anyway, the model gossipd is supposed to use is, you pass along traffic to your peers, if you're satisfied that it comes from either youself or a peer. it's a sort of messaging-over-wot. exactly like v works.

23:46:48 maqp: v works?

23:47:01 mircea_popescu: v does work yes, it's how bitcoin is installed currently.

23:50:52 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 46400 @ 0.00056019 = 25.9928 BTC [-] {5}

23:50:54 phf: maqp: in case of gossip there's no propagation. it's a p2p where each node, explicitly your peer, makes claims about what was said or heard elsewhere. не веришь, прими за сказку

23:52:01 mircea_popescu: i doubt he speaks russian.

23:52:09 mircea_popescu: let's walk through this maqp

23:52:14 maqp: sure

23:52:38 mircea_popescu: i wish to say "Hi" to you. my peers are X, Y and Z. i encrypt "please say Hi for me to maqp" with X, Y, Z pubkeys.

23:52:59 mircea_popescu: X, Y and Z see this, and if they like me enough, and if they have your pubkey, pass along the Hi to you.

23:54:44 mircea_popescu: basically the whole system is an implementation of "have you heard what X said", but with computers.

23:55:00 maqp: So are you signing the plaintext before you send it to the peer?

23:55:06 mircea_popescu: you are not signing anything.

23:55:17 mircea_popescu: the information you receive is only as good as the trustworthyness of your peers.

23:55:31 maqp: So a friend who holds a grudge on you can change a message?

23:55:35 mircea_popescu: yup.

23:55:39 mircea_popescu: moreover, they should.

23:55:58 mircea_popescu: the power of the system is exactly this : that an attacker doesn't know NOR CAN KNOW if he';s being sybilled to death or not.

23:56:52 maqp: so a secure communication system with no anonymity between peers, no secrecy, no integrity and no authenticity unless all peers are trustworthy

23:57:48 mircea_popescu: complete anonimity between peers more than one node removed ; complete secrecy outside of the node group ; no integrity or authenticity outside of the wot trust.

23:58:41 mircea_popescu: you know, sorta how language works.

23:59:03 maqp: Why couldn't this work on OTR. I have a OTR messaging with my friend and I ask them to relay a message for me to someone peer has on their contacts?

23:59:19 mircea_popescu: you don't know who he has in his contacts.
