00:32:02 pete_dushenski: mhm

00:38:13 BingoBoingo: !up nubbins`

00:47:16 asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: there's a reason orlov et al live in boats and not trucks

00:48:13 BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Sure, but I'm not just contemplating trucks, but trucks with flashing lights!

00:48:49 trinque: BingoBoingo: put a snow plow on the front too

00:48:51 trinque: good crowd control

00:48:56 asciilifeform: land vehicles are not only lacking in the distance-from-other-schmucks aspect of the boat, but in usa are specifically (ianal - check with up-to-date sources) excluded from the juridicial definition of 'home' for the purposes of search&seizure

00:49:50 BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Excluded when moving or on a public right of way. when not moving on any private property they can rapidly convert to domicile

00:50:11 asciilifeform: iirc, only if said property is your own

00:50:25 BingoBoingo: Maybe.

00:51:03 BingoBoingo: Still in international waters pretty much any navy/coast guard reserves the right to conduct colonoscopy

00:51:24 asciilifeform: likewise, if your vehicle contains a toilet - you are more or less stuck at least frequenting the dismal ghettoschwitzes where such machines are typically kept at anchor

00:52:00 BingoBoingo: firetrucks don't have toilets, but they have shovels for digging your own toilets as needed

00:52:00 asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: in international waters, they need a reason to take detour

00:52:47 BingoBoingo: need is an awfully loaded word considering the incursions on the somali coast by nation-state actors

00:53:11 asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: i've often wondered who will be the first in this century to fill a fire truck with petrol.

00:53:14 asciilifeform: the water tank, that is

00:53:36 asciilifeform: best done on a column of soldiers.

00:53:39 asciilifeform: don't light it!

00:53:51 BingoBoingo: I'd be worried about unloading petrol through pump designed for water. Pump might ignite itself

00:53:54 asciilifeform: it usually sinks in, goes the folk story, before anyone fires.

00:54:28 asciilifeform: surrender - get a shower.

00:55:29 BingoBoingo: Just have to avoid the tempation to follow the Roman firefighting tradition

00:55:39 BingoBoingo: Builds ill will with the locals

00:58:32 BingoBoingo: See Crassus

01:00:28 asciilifeform: (source of the 'flameless flamethrower' stratagem - u.s. grunts in vietnam, applied to rice paddies with hidden men)

01:00:41 *: asciilifeform wasn't there, cannot vouch for efficacy

01:02:08 BingoBoingo: Ah

01:38:25 BingoBoingo: !up Pierre_Rochard

01:52:47 mircea_popescu: it wouldn't stick on anyone else, like p, except they keep confessing like the pastiass dickless shitheads they are.

01:53:15 mircea_popescu: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=07-04-2015#1091532 << o yea ? somehow i dun see it.

01:53:15 assbot: Logged on 07-04-2015 23:44:14; asciilifeform: and before mircea_popescu observes that 'no one has the balls' - if the 'balls-enabled' jfk appeared, a 'counter-jfk' would materialize out of thin aether

01:55:15 mircea_popescu: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=07-04-2015#1091539 << what is this dumb shit ?

01:57:09 assbot: Logged on 07-04-2015 23:57:31; pete_dushenski: though i'll take a plane and high-end hotel room any day, and i'll still come out ahead on costs compared to 'high-end rv'

01:58:18 mats: i'm watching "Blackhat" atm, p funny so far

01:59:07 mats: .cn sysop uses yubikey at his terminal, "he's using gpg encryption... it'll take me at least a month to crack it... it must be at least a 512 bit key"

01:59:31 mats: er, these are distinct things, but anyway.

02:00:16 danielpbarron: the kmikeym thing is "the first publically traded person"

02:00:21 danielpbarron: Of course it's not a real share like you might buy on the NYSE or NASDAQ. There is no company behind KmikeyM and so the "ownership" you hold is actually a just a metaphor for trust. We have built a fully-functional market simulation and we borrow a lot of language and concepts from the business world in order to make the process easy to understand.

02:00:29 BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> ... << not to mention you wouldn't be stuck with the impotent sort of potheads that crowd a "orgy rv" to the point of total cockblockage. << But... Firetruck. They put the lotion on the skin, or they get the hose again

02:00:40 mircea_popescu: yeah. right.

02:07:12 asciilifeform: afaik there are none

02:07:15 asciilifeform: nor could there be.

02:09:02 mats: i was told michael mann is known for making relatively accurate movies

02:09:22 mats: oh wow these chinese shooters don't know how to clear rooms

02:09:45 BingoBoingo: !b 2

02:09:46 assbot: Last 2 lines bashed and pending review. ( http://dpaste.com/2GAKKY9.txt )

02:09:54 asciilifeform: who clears rooms by shooting, anyway

02:10:02 asciilifeform: i thought the civilized way was with frag

02:10:14 mats: civilized way is with four dudes and a perimeter.

02:10:33 BingoBoingo: <asciilifeform> i thought the civilized way was with frag << With flash and bang unless you know walls actually protect yourself

02:10:42 asciilifeform: 'you enter a room in pairs. first your frag, then you' (ru adage)

02:13:37 mircea_popescu: but thanks for playing.

02:14:23 mircea_popescu: magical box that breaks secrets, this isn't a film about hacking, this is scherezade in a "modern" color scheme.

02:14:35 mircea_popescu: has as much to do with computers as with aladin.

02:15:50 asciilifeform: somebody (greg egan?) had a short story with such a box, that wasn't utterly retarded

02:16:18 asciilifeform: the catch was that the magical box didn't really break the crypto, but distorted the universe to fit the operator's preconceptions of what the plaintext was.

02:16:27 asciilifeform: to lulzy result.

02:16:58 mircea_popescu: this is why i fucking hate sf.

02:46:02 mircea_popescu: o.O

02:46:23 mircea_popescu: this has to be a meme. mats pic and the caption "i don't always go on research binges on the internet. but when i do, we're talking 400 hours bish!"

02:46:35 punkman: nubbins`: lol, how many accounts does that guy have on the forum

02:47:08 mircea_popescu: nubbins` your such an idiot man.

02:47:57 mircea_popescu: i did it in my digital print dirivitive. also i added some ants, because it kinda looks like a spider web which makes sense.

02:49:59 BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Alt flameless flamethrower, various ergot products and DMSO

02:50:02 punkman: ants love playing in spider webs

02:52:05 mircea_popescu: 7.5 proxies.

02:52:14 nubbins`: so it's uh, not just blazed that paid the guy $$$$ for wood :o

02:52:15 asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: this was considered by various folks (in somewhat different variant) and the answer is that the product breaks down in water unacceptably quickly.

02:52:26 mircea_popescu: nubbins` i have my doubts blazed paid him anything.

02:52:36 mircea_popescu: more like "here's something, say you paid me a lot for it, it'll look good on both of us"

02:52:43 mircea_popescu: sorta like ver "invested" in whatever the shit.

02:53:05 BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Can store seperatley though, especially in complex apparatus with multiple pumps and tanks

02:53:13 asciilifeform: <BingoBoingo> mats single handedly took on the legal equivalent of pogo linux and won << considerably more interesting than pogo linux

02:54:28 mircea_popescu: "I'm calling you out on this one, answer or lose whatever credibility you had because there is 1 MILLION percent no way you have a single shred of proof that i am anyone or anything especially some guy in vietnam who sells wooden shit and if you ain't going to back up your BS i will rally every single body that you pulled your fake "probable alt of _____________" and lead a campaign of ensuring you never have the credi

02:57:46 punkman: "I have decided to use half my bitcoin ( about 3,300 coins ) to form a self funded organization with the sole purpose of helping to spread information about bitcoin to the world through mass media, local "troops" or small groups, a website, blog, billboards, magazine ad's, TV. and whatever else 3,300 bitcoins will afford me."

02:57:48 asciilifeform: i mean, wtf, elementary

03:01:29 punkman: "Guerilla marketing is probably the most effective means, vinyl stickers at urinals on mirrors under drive thru windows under the drive thru speaker bumper stickers and the great thing about bitcoin is the stickers could actually have a qr code that links you to some free satoshis so people that never considered buying bitcoin just have to pull out there phone"

03:01:40 punkman: good thread

03:02:16 mircea_popescu: check it out, it's like 2011.

03:05:55 asciilifeform: the marvel is not the continued existence of the woodcollectors, as such, but of the plankton they eat

03:05:58 nubbins`: i give up, it's socks all the way down

03:06:04 nubbins`: guy makes socks to call out his other socks for being socks

03:06:21 nubbins`: \o/

03:06:22 mircea_popescu: the wonders of a living wage, and generaly welfare etatism.

03:06:30 mircea_popescu: people gotta do *something* with all that time.

03:06:34 mircea_popescu: dirivitives.

03:06:56 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i'd be surprised if this character didn't have a grueling day job

03:07:20 punkman: grueling day job and time to make 250 forum accounts?

03:07:22 mircea_popescu: his wife/mother supports him.

03:07:26 mircea_popescu: women are fucking dumb like that.

03:07:32 mircea_popescu: recall the case of the "forum banker" dude ?

03:07:38 mircea_popescu: cartels, stuff ?

03:07:46 asciilifeform: grueling day job could easily be -where- he made 250 accounts

03:07:51 nubbins`: ^

03:07:52 asciilifeform: not on official orders, naturally

03:07:55 punkman: then not grueling

03:08:06 nubbins`: grueling day job walking the aisles, looking for shoplifters

03:08:34 asciilifeform: nubbins`: can you picture how many folks are paid to sit (not necessarily even at a computer, could be a pNohe in one hand) and wait for a bell to ring ?

03:08:38 nubbins`: actually no i'd say he's a full time scammer

07:07:12 BingoBoingo: As seriously as people build up the ransomware threat the entire ecosystem is awfully precarious. One could readily kill it with ransomware that did not honor a ransom

07:07:19 felipelalli: BingoBoingo: making a "really lier" ransomware would accelerate this process. hahaha

07:08:15 BingoBoingo: The risk associated with doing such a thing isn't likely worth it compared to other ventures in BTC which are far nobeler to hang for

07:08:35 felipelalli: yes. I was kidding anyway. But would be fun!

07:11:38 felipelalli: would be the terror of the scammers. A "fake scammer" but "really bad and lier" would make the long-term good, after all.

07:11:46 felipelalli: funny to think about it.

19:58:33 mircea_popescu: oh nm got bundled with later thing.

20:00:45 asciilifeform: !up ascii_field

20:00:56 ascii_field: heap fragging in bitcoind.

20:01:40 mircea_popescu: no ?

20:01:46 ascii_field: almost certainly yes.

20:02:30 mircea_popescu: definitely yes.

20:02:47 mircea_popescu: it's been danced around with all sorts of patches and whatnot, but multiple ddos avenues related to fragmentation.

20:03:16 ascii_field: anyone mention it before i just now ?

20:03:50 mircea_popescu: i know bitcoinj ran into it plentifully.

20:10:46 ben_vulpes: ;;ticker

20:10:48 gribble: Bitfinex BTCUSD ticker | Best bid: 246.0, Best ask: 246.01, Bid-ask spread: 0.01000, Last trade: 246.01, 24 hour volume: 38386.95711616, 24 hour low: 242.72, 24 hour high: 256.4, 24 hour vwap: None

20:24:42 mircea_popescu: ascii_field part of the problem is that you're stuck mushing together items that can arbitrarily be anything between 100 bytes and whatever, 250kb. and there's a lot of them. no way to allocate but dynamically, willy-nilly keep getting them allocated and deallocated and again and again.

20:24:57 ascii_field: mircea_popescu: i know what heap fragging is

20:25:19 mircea_popescu: no, i just mean, with bitcoin is to some degree unavoidalbe, because txn.

20:25:43 ascii_field: entirely avoidable if one plans for it

20:25:58 mircea_popescu: yeah well.

20:26:04 ascii_field: typically this is handled with custom 'multi-generational' allocator

20:26:35 mircea_popescu: yes but it's worse than that : if you have an elegant alocator and the people do not, your chain will fork and theirs will not.

20:26:51 mircea_popescu: this is one of those places where bug to bug compatibility rears it's ugly butt.

20:27:46 jurov: what part of buttcoin depends on memory allocation?

20:27:51 ascii_field: mircea_popescu: if allocator leads to fork, it is wrong

20:27:58 mircea_popescu: kinda why idiots (and by that i mean satoshi) shouldn't be allowed to code in the first place. but hey, we believe in the power of belief...

20:28:21 mircea_popescu: ascii_field it will construct and mine a block that makes everyone else crash, conceivably.

20:28:28 mircea_popescu: and subtly, to boot.

20:28:45 ascii_field: mircea_popescu: a proper 1m block should never be able to 'make everyone crash'

20:28:59 jurov: even improper

20:29:13 ascii_field: if such a thing could, then bitcoin is buggy and the sooner it is detonated, the better

20:29:23 mircea_popescu: i am atm not sure it couldn't.

20:29:34 mircea_popescu: in fact, this has happened (not due to the heap issue, true)

20:29:43 ascii_field: the bdb thng ?

20:29:48 mircea_popescu: yes the locks thing

20:29:57 mircea_popescu: note very similar issue : exhausted locks, exhausted heap...

20:30:16 ascii_field: it was an epic lameness and a number of folks ought to have felt the stake

20:30:42 mircea_popescu: yeah well. let me propose something for you here. just for curiosity's sake, a rough model.

20:31:11 mircea_popescu: so i broadcast 50k 140 byte txn. you allocate these, they fail, you deallocate them. before you had time to go through the lot however,

20:31:14 BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> dude i swear there was a different coinsetter that was trying to be a sort of coindeks << I constantly run into new ventures that imagine they are qntra competitors

20:31:26 mircea_popescu: i also broadcast 50k 150 byte txn. these go in your pile, and on fresh memory.

20:31:30 mircea_popescu: !up ascii_field

20:31:51 mircea_popescu: by the time you're entirely exhausted, i broadcast some more txn and mine a block with them.

20:32:15 BingoBoingo: <ben_vulpes> who's on the qntra /reddit as usg mouthpiece/ beat? << There is a fraudsters post tracking this phenomenon, but if you want to elevate it to a sustained operation go for it.

20:32:33 ascii_field: mircea_popescu: this in fact happens 'in the wild.' the only reason it does not lead to forks where folks with, e.g., 1GB of ram wheel off into a parallel universe from folks with 2GB, and 4GB, etc. is,

20:32:48 ascii_field: that the fragging issue itself results in ludicrously overpowered boxes being put to use

20:32:48 mircea_popescu: that everyone uses about as much ram ?

20:32:54 mircea_popescu: right.

20:32:59 mircea_popescu: but it remains a problem, this.

20:33:00 ascii_field: where the garbage has time to coalesce

20:33:20 mircea_popescu: note that this is one of the majorest issues lurking in the "larger blocks"

20:33:34 mircea_popescu: currently the 1mb limit is blessfully keeping THIS (among its many sisters) under the water.

20:34:02 mircea_popescu: that gavin [pretends like he] doesn't know such is exactly why the verbiage as to the retarded boy in one of my articles debunking the nonsense.

20:34:44 jurov: i don't see the issue why that would lead to fork per se.

20:35:10 jurov: you just flush the disk cache by your misallocations and then take longer to verify the block

20:35:19 mircea_popescu: but do you mathematically see the proof where it never would ?

20:35:23 mircea_popescu: different standards here.

20:36:33 mircea_popescu: in general, going by the "never one single bug in kitchen, and noting that bdb locks are a resource of the kind that pointers are, just one easier to exhaust, i propose this as likely, on the basis of my business heuristics.

20:36:43 mircea_popescu: which obviously differ from your coder heuristics. but differ to our benefit.

20:37:08 jurov: bdb is much more coplicated and hard to debug api than malloc/free

20:37:40 mircea_popescu: every word is complicated for whosoever doesn't read.

20:38:08 mircea_popescu: and the bitcoind allocation scheme isn't a jewel or anything.

20:39:07 ascii_field: 'isn't a jewel' << mega-understatement of the century

20:39:34 jurov: nothing is a jewel here

20:39:43 mircea_popescu: fuck you, i'm a jewel.

20:40:03 jurov: yea, like you never make mistakes

20:40:11 mircea_popescu: no, like a jew.

20:40:14 mircea_popescu: only with -el.

20:40:14 ascii_field: like sapper.

20:40:26 ascii_field: sappers get to make their one mistake.

20:42:47 ascii_field: at any rate, this gedankenexperiment is an interesting one - where does 'bug for bug compatibility' legitimately stop? are we obligated to crash for 1GB of uncoalesceable crud, or 2GB? 4? 16?

20:43:17 mircea_popescu: this afaik has never been seriously measured

20:43:30 mircea_popescu: we don't care atm, because we know experimentally the system as deployed is stable.

20:43:34 ascii_field: didn't say that it was (except that it - was, i measured)

20:43:44 mircea_popescu: nevertheless, before any sort of change, like say a block size increase, this will have to be measured

20:43:48 mircea_popescu: among many other things

20:43:57 ascii_field: more high-level dilemma here

20:44:02 mircea_popescu: not among which, the opnion of reddit, the headers of miners etc.

20:44:15 ascii_field: at what point do 'we' get to proclaim that folks using the buggy version are retarded ?

20:44:26 mircea_popescu: not how this is handled.

20:44:38 mircea_popescu: we explain the problem, publish the measuring tools, let people declare themselves retarded.

20:44:39 *: ascii_field has no idea how, or even whether, this is handled.

20:44:42 mircea_popescu: once enough do... problem solved.

20:44:52 mircea_popescu: before... we wait.

20:45:01 mircea_popescu: like i've been waiting, on many things, for many years.

20:45:14 ascii_field: and until then, what? we are required to leak at the same rate as which extant bitcoind?

20:45:17 ascii_field: gavin's?

20:45:20 ascii_field: the java turd ?

20:45:27 mircea_popescu: until then, we hang out in irc.

20:45:29 ascii_field: we don't even know for a fact what it is the miners use..

20:45:34 mircea_popescu: and say yes and no as people ask and wonder.

20:46:21 mircea_popescu: as teh expression goes, "relax, you have plenty of time. tomorrow - you die."

20:46:32 ascii_field: to continue with the line of thought, as soon as we so much as frag less than gavin's turd, someone - anyone - could send us off on a fork of less-retardation.

20:46:45 ascii_field: simply by churning out 'godelian' blocks for gavincoin

20:49:04 mircea_popescu: maybe. it's a complicated thing.
