02:55:10 BingoBoingo: Ah.

02:58:39 BingoBoingo: Seriously the two episodes which triggered this were drunk white kids who said "nigger". Fighting that is like fighting entropy. It's just going to keep happening.

02:59:34 BingoBoingo: It's going to be Obama all over again.

03:50:09 asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: in our own time - there was 'la guerra del futbol'

03:50:23 asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: ergo usa sport folks have a long way to go.

03:50:35 asciilifeform: before 'seriously'.

03:52:29 asciilifeform: supposedly, la guerra del futbol was the last engagement of piston-engined fighters on both sides

03:58:07 BingoBoingo: I guess, though some of the US sports rivalries carry over sentiment from border skirmishes like Missouri/Kansas

04:01:00 BingoBoingo: But that now only typically gets as violent as the occasional vandalism or isolated mugging/curb stomping

04:27:03 BingoBoingo: Though the US Presidency hasn't been a win in a long time

04:28:56 mircea_popescu: they better be spending half the day on knees praying mr toupe wins, because if he does there won't be power vacuum for young corporal/painter to take over.

04:39:25 phf: mircea_popescu: sorry about not picking up mushrooms, right after i finished the port, i did a move to DC area, and then, after few days, left for a trade show, which i just came back from. i started working on a text only client for eulora, but i didn't get far enough to claim my items with it.

04:39:39 phf: which brings me to the point that i have folders for all but "make new hardware" item in that list of b-a scope in various states of disarray, and it would be great if there was some prioritization, like it was the case with eulora "oh we need this done, you do it".

04:40:15 phf: i have some code for gossipd, i'm going to by the spec that's published on fraudsters, rather then follow up conversation about udp and first packet validation. i wrote enough in c to be able to prime gpg machinery and send packets over the wire (which basically coveres things that i wasn't sure how to do before i started), then i switched to common lisp to get a prototype up. what came out of that so far is updated bindings for lisp

04:40:15 phf: support of gpgme. the bindings come standard with gpgme release, but what's there was not updated since 2008. officially artifex is still working on that, but i take it nobody's heard from him in a while?

04:56:29 trinque: jurov │ kakobrekla or whoever, pls make http://deeds.bitcoin-assets.com/deed/9ULZPc7yeZ9fQEA1aZ73H6mcv1s2C4gYFAbNTb5urovj working again << I believe I have that link pointed to the correct place now.

04:57:39 mod6: eh, i think that was supposed to point at the treasurers document

04:58:11 mod6: ?

04:58:14 trinque: mod6: ah, ok. and the one in the body of the article is this one?

04:58:42 trinque: if nobody remembers I can figure it out myself.

05:00:40 mod6: yeah, i don't recall. i had thought that maybe that deed was intended to point at the treasurers doc since it has the foundation donation address in there.

05:00:50 mod6: might be worth a look to see what's what there.

05:01:46 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 53300 @ 0.00055835 = 29.7601 BTC [-] {4}

05:06:12 mircea_popescu: phf no big deal, s'just a game

05:08:07 mircea_popescu: re the meat : all of these are major projects, the expectation, imo reasonable, is that whoever decides to work on one starts by publishing code, which will vehehehery likely need refactoring perhaps even redesign. because we're here shooting in the dark. so rather than managerial idiocy, i much prefer somnething like how v worked out.

05:08:37 mircea_popescu: publish a prototype, im sure alf will be more than happy to look through it, plenty other people will test it etc.

05:09:47 mod6: trinque: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=05-11-2014#911918

05:10:29 mod6: maybe it was the charter

05:10:33 asciilifeform: phf: callouts to gpg are a dead end

05:10:48 asciilifeform: phf: and i specifically didn't go with cl because this thing CANNOT cons

05:10:57 asciilifeform: try to understand why, on your own

05:11:29 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform they're not a dead end for the following reason : the P must be a stand-alone building block anyway.

05:11:37 mircea_popescu: they'll, if nothing else, help us understand the api to it.

05:11:48 asciilifeform: standalone in the sense mpi was in gpg.

05:11:55 asciilifeform: (statically linked lib)

05:12:00 asciilifeform: but not separate process.

05:12:02 mircea_popescu: standalone in the sense that ... well yes.

05:12:11 mircea_popescu: but i want it to be one thing and everyone statically links IT

05:12:14 asciilifeform: aha.

05:12:17 mircea_popescu: rather than five different reimplementations

05:12:21 asciilifeform: that's what i turned mpi into.

05:12:30 trinque: punkman: what did those values in the URL stand for, and I can just regenerate them from what I pulled from your sqlite

05:12:33 mircea_popescu: so in this sense the design is sane, as he has it. callout to "gpg", to be replaced by p

05:12:44 asciilifeform: 'callout' means something particular, customarily

05:12:52 mircea_popescu: he didn't use the word.

05:13:28 asciilifeform: 'i wrote enough in c to be able to prime gpg machinery and send packets over the wire' suggested callout. but why not wait till phf wakes up and clarifies.

05:14:51 mircea_popescu: aha.

05:14:57 phf: asciilifeform: gpgme doesn't exactly "calls out", it talks to gpg via a text protocol, but i agree with your overall point. gossip has a fixed set of crypto operations, that can be abstracted, until you finish your crypto state machine gizmo.

05:15:12 mircea_popescu: can and moreover must be.

05:15:42 mircea_popescu: if we manage to avoid the insane state of importing openssl bondogle to do crypto we're so far ahead of the game...

05:16:01 asciilifeform: already there.

05:16:28 mircea_popescu: hm ?

05:17:15 asciilifeform: gpg didn't use openssl for anything

05:17:29 mircea_popescu: nono i was making a simile

05:17:32 asciilifeform: ah

05:17:58 phf: as far as lisp, yeah, not practical for deployment, but i started getting bogged down in trivial serialization questions, before i understand clearly how the whole system is supposed to work. once i get the spec as is up, i want to start working through those comments to modify it into a udp lower level system. in any case lisp is better option for gossip prototype, because the spec is so open ended

05:18:51 mircea_popescu: so gossipd is practically going to be lisp hand-compiled ot c ?

05:18:58 phf: yes

05:19:08 asciilifeform: phf: i actually started where you are now

05:19:27 asciilifeform: phf: but skipped straight to the c on account of realizing that 99+% of the work is precisely in getting this to behave sanely

05:20:57 mircea_popescu: can lisp even be hand compiled to c ?

05:21:02 phf: i'm pretty bad a dijkstra programming, i need to see the system behave to reason clearly about it, and c is not it. besides the translation is the tirvial part

05:21:12 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: in a very loose sense

05:21:34 mircea_popescu: phf you're not required to agree to this inasmuch as you're using your own time & hands.

05:22:10 mircea_popescu: write it in lua if that's genuinely what works for you.

05:22:38 asciilifeform: phf: the 'translation is trivial' is the mega-mistake. go and bake, e.g., a sane allocator.

05:22:59 asciilifeform: your unix box doesn't have such a thing. and neither did mine. or anybody else's.

05:23:45 phf: asciilifeform: boehm gc?

05:23:48 *: phf ducks

05:23:53 *: asciilifeform retches

05:24:16 mircea_popescu: if you end in this situation where you have a beautiful prototype and a buggy implementation people are going to hate you.

05:24:29 asciilifeform: ^

05:24:31 phf: it's a tried and true strategy, original javascript has been done that way. i recently learned that that's the way dot-net garbage collector was written

05:24:49 asciilifeform: and this is an example to follow ?!!!

05:24:54 mircea_popescu: none of these work

05:24:56 mircea_popescu: aha.

05:25:25 phf: not the best examples, i agree :>

05:25:31 asciilifeform: realize, i've been working on the abolition even of libc from the mix.

05:25:35 mircea_popescu: actually, world famous memory hogs

05:25:40 mircea_popescu: another mystery revealed.

05:25:42 asciilifeform: as in all of it

05:26:03 phf: i.e. system calls only?

05:26:08 asciilifeform: as in when the thing gets planted on a micro we change 3 lines.

05:26:13 asciilifeform: aha.

05:26:23 mircea_popescu: this is rather ideal.

05:27:19 asciilifeform: when i say 'program is to be read', i do not mean in a metaphorical sense of 'most of it' or 'the important parts'

05:27:24 asciilifeform: but literal.

05:27:54 asciilifeform: 'this parachute, i wrapped myself. signed, prv. xxxxx.'

05:27:55 phf: speaking of, so far what c code is written, it's written in cweb

05:28:13 mircea_popescu: in what

05:28:23 mircea_popescu: knuth c ?

05:29:13 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 29400 @ 0.00055717 = 16.3808 BTC [-]

05:29:56 phf: knuth literate thing, yes, the translator produces c files with relevant bits interpolated

05:30:09 trinque: jurov: links in the declaration and qntra piece are afaik pointing to the right place, pending punkman's indication on how to generate the values he was using for URLs

05:30:11 *: mircea_popescu is rather partial to the concept of "god damned it source code should be written in essay form what is this machine serving bs"

05:30:24 trinque: also.

05:30:31 deedbot-: accepted: 1

05:34:28 mircea_popescu: incidentally, the only case where a "source is the spec" could be excused, is properly written knuth c.

05:34:55 asciilifeform: only if the thing is entirely self-carrying.

05:34:59 mircea_popescu: yes.

05:35:04 asciilifeform: as in, no #include <...>

05:35:09 asciilifeform: solely #include "..."

05:35:15 mircea_popescu: hey, there's a principle there.

05:35:21 mircea_popescu: obviously if you break the principle you break the principle.

05:35:28 asciilifeform: and builds as readily on tinycc as on gcc.

05:35:29 asciilifeform: etc

05:35:55 mircea_popescu: i don't expect it would build on anything.

05:36:02 phf: i like that the end result can be wholly signed and produces a spiffy dvi for printing

05:36:17 mircea_popescu: yes.

05:36:31 mircea_popescu: it's certainly a "best practice" sorta thing

05:37:40 phf: it doesn't necessarily has to be particularly intrusive, i've looked at some of his "hacks", and they are very lightly annotated, but the partitioning still makes more sense that the direct flow of a c file

05:38:36 mircea_popescu: whjat i mean by "best practices sorta thing" : nobody;'s going to hang you if you don't do it, but should seriously consider doing it.

05:38:45 phf: in any case that's, so far, the best option i found for keeping the evils of c at a slight distance. at least interested parties can read and inspect the code, without skipping tricky parts

06:44:56 punkman: so question for engineers: I have an aluminum window casing that's corroding in a couple spots around the edges, and corroded part is growing outwards something like puffy/powdery flakes. been trying to find the technical term to no avail.

06:45:51 pete_dushenski: technical term for corrosion ?

06:46:39 pete_dushenski: "Christakis hasn’t checked in on any of us. He hasn’t given us any indication that he is going to or wants to heal the community. If you know I’m in pain and you aren’t doing anything to try to help me, then how can you be sorry? Christakis is the Master of Silliman College, it is his job to take care of us, and he is failing." << so much lose it wins.

06:47:25 punkman: pete_dushenski: whatever it is that's happening. it looks pretty weird

06:48:52 pete_dushenski: sounds like the protective anodised coating on your aluminum frames has lost the battle against mother nature

06:49:16 pete_dushenski: maybe replace them with fibreglass ? or tell landlord to ?

06:49:50 *: pete_dushenski just realised how shocked he'd be to find a fibreglass-framed window anywhere in greece

06:50:01 punkman: how's fibreglass work for that

06:50:19 pete_dushenski: fibreglass doesn't corrode

06:51:39 pete_dushenski: also, because it expands and contracts at essentially the same rate as the glazing, the window seals are stressed markedly less, improving the system's longevity by reducing condensation and air infiltration

06:53:50 pete_dushenski: though this similarity in the coefficient of expansion assumes a triple-glazing, which is relatively common here, whereas milder climates will use double, even single-glazed windows

06:54:23 punkman: yeah I barely need windows here, only double-glaze

07:26:52 punkman: "But replying to email on mobile is a real pain, even for short replies." oh so Android sucks for doing anything?

07:27:11 pete_dushenski: "Another bizarre feature of our early prototype was its propensity to respond with “I love you” to seemingly anything. As adorable as this sounds, it wasn’t really what we were hoping for. Some analysis revealed that the system was doing exactly what we’d trained it to do, generate likely responses -- and it turns out that responses like “Thanks", "Sounds good", and “I love you” are super common --

07:27:11 pete_dushenski: so the system would lean on them as a safe bet if it was unsure. Normalizing the likelihood of a candidate reply by some measure of that response's prior probability forced the model to predict responses that were not just highly likely, but also had high affinity to the original message. This made for a less lovey, but far more useful, email assistant.

07:27:11 pete_dushenski: Give it a try

07:27:12 pete_dushenski: We’re actually pretty amazed at how well this works. We’ll be rolling this feature out on Inbox for Android and iOS later this week, and we hope you’ll try it for yourself!
