00:00:43 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 60508 @ 0.00051431 = 31.1199 BTC [-]

00:10:51 whaack: I'm working on installing the eulora client on mac, and I have two questions

00:13:00 whaack: (1) When you unzip the tar you get a directory with Eulora, data-cs, and a readme. Do you want people installing the game to remove the data-cs and readme and rename the "Eulora" directory to eulora-src?

00:14:30 whaack: If not, it seems that every instruction on the wiki should be .../eulora-src/Eulora/... instead of /eulora-src/

00:15:50 whaack: (2) The last instruction says to run ./configure inside of eulora-src, but there is no configure file

00:18:00 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 32600 @ 0.00052319 = 17.056 BTC [+]

00:19:58 asciilifeform: ;;later tell BingoBoingo the min fee thing isn't, as far as i can tell, in therealbitcoin. interested in writing a patch ?

00:19:58 gribble: The operation succeeded.

00:21:28 BingoBoingo: I'm not sure I am good enough at create new code. I might dig and mail code I pull from turdmeister's 0.7.3 version for this and getpeerinfo, unsure if I can put together something that *works*

00:21:53 williamdunne: jurov: Any plans to get Eurola on steam?

00:22:07 asciilifeform: http://btc.yt/lxr/satoshi/source/src/main.h#0527

00:22:08 assbot: Satoshi 0.5.3.1/src/main.h ... ( http://bit.ly/1INoy6R )

00:22:14 asciilifeform: BingoBoingo ^ what we have

00:22:34 mircea_popescu: whaack the mac instructyions may be a little stale

00:22:48 mircea_popescu: give a look at the nix stuff maybe it clarifies ?

00:23:06 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 41108 @ 0.0005126 = 21.072 BTC [-] {2}

00:23:29 asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: GetMinFee figures in AcceptToMemoryPool and CreateNewBlock

00:23:32 asciilifeform: just as one might expect.

00:23:39 BingoBoingo: Ah

00:23:45 asciilifeform: and in CreateTransaction

00:24:31 asciilifeform: the way i see it, what to relay is really a personal choice for node operator

00:24:57 asciilifeform: last i saw, the 'spammer' was sending 'old coins' though

00:25:22 asciilifeform: presently i'm not certain why i should give a fuck re: the spam

00:26:26 *: asciilifeform not a big fan of the whole 'mempool' scheme, but has said this before, it's in the logz

00:36:32 *: williamdunne has nearly got Eurola running, interface reminds me of a game I worked on once upon a time

00:37:26 williamdunne: mircea_popescu: Would y'mind setting me up with an account?

00:38:57 mircea_popescu: nope

00:39:01 mircea_popescu: onesec

00:41:39 williamdunne: God, now I'm having flashbacks to working with scaleform and Adobe Flash

00:42:37 mircea_popescu: lol no flahs here

00:42:43 whaack: mircea_popescu: yeah it seems there was an instruction that was missing that was in the other sections, I've updated the wiki

00:42:50 mircea_popescu: tyvm.

00:42:58 mircea_popescu: usually how these things go

00:43:07 mircea_popescu: you want an acct too ?

00:44:45 williamdunne: mircea_popescu: Well, IIRC it wasn't flash directly, but for some retarded reason they thought it'd be a good idea to reverse engineer the flash format so you'd do some coding and the design in adobe flash

00:45:05 williamdunne: So the process was create frames in Photoshop, import to flash, add some actioncrap, and then export to scaleform

00:45:12 williamdunne: Which 50% of the time wouldn't work

00:46:03 mircea_popescu: williamdunne http://dpaste.com/3EYNJJP

00:46:04 assbot: dpaste: 3EYNJJP ... ( http://bit.ly/1INrgt8 )

00:46:28 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 54042 @ 0.00051194 = 27.6663 BTC [-] {2}

00:47:24 whaack: mircea_popescu: yes please, but I'm still working on getting the client running

00:47:29 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 48158 @ 0.00050997 = 24.5591 BTC [-] {3}

00:47:33 mircea_popescu: aite

00:48:03 williamdunne: mircea_popescu: Thanks, seems to be working so far

00:48:09 mircea_popescu: o hey

00:48:16 mircea_popescu: ima be in there in a few mins get you started :)

00:49:17 williamdunne: Awesome

00:50:54 mircea_popescu: whaack http://dpaste.com/3KT2S67

00:50:55 assbot: dpaste: 3KT2S67 ... ( http://bit.ly/1INrSio )

00:53:45 BingoBoingo: Ah, the minrelaytxfee flag I thought I was using was doing nothing, because it apparently didn't exist until 0.9

00:58:40 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 29000 @ 0.000534 = 15.486 BTC [+]

01:01:43 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 3600 @ 0.00053839 = 1.9382 BTC [+]

01:07:03 shinohai: !up SuchWow

01:07:25 SuchWow: is there a litecoin-assets yet lol

01:07:44 shinohai: ren't you a dogecoiner SuchWow ?

01:08:39 ben_vulpes: SuchWow: what's litecoin?

01:08:49 shinohai: kek

01:09:32 ben_vulpes: 271609

01:10:10 ben_vulpes: <asciilifeform> i want every token << you probably want the serialization insanity as well

01:11:11 BingoBoingo: Ah, the pull request that created the -minrelaytxfee flag https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/pull/2577/files

01:11:13 assbot: Treat dust outputs as non-standard, un-hardcode TX_FEE constants by gavinandresen · Pull Request #2577 · bitcoin/bitcoin · GitHub ... ( http://bit.ly/1INtRTZ )

01:11:26 ben_vulpes: anyways with all this froofraw it'd be nice to have a mining pool that ran 0.5.3

01:12:33 SuchWow: shinohai: dogecoin is just what got me into crypo in dec 2013, i then daytraded btc/usc (and occasionally alts, plus a small mining venture) from Jan-July '13, and have been back to just working a day job for the last year or so

01:12:44 SuchWow: i still find it fun and useful to keep a close eye on cryptos daily

01:12:57 SuchWow: that 'future' gonna be here quicker than we know it :)

01:12:58 ben_vulpes: > fun

01:13:03 ben_vulpes: nothing is fun

01:13:06 ben_vulpes: arbeith macht frei

01:13:38 SuchWow: o/

01:13:44 SuchWow: ;p

01:14:52 ben_vulpes: <BingoBoingo> As far as I can tell time does not exist other than as a projection perpetrated by the brain << hear hear

01:15:19 ben_vulpes: but it's not so much the brain as the necessity of linearization of memory for things that travel along a 3-brane

01:15:36 ben_vulpes: (that itself is drifting steadily along another axis)

01:16:18 ben_vulpes: too heady for you, SuchWow?

01:18:28 ben_vulpes: <asciilifeform> pogo cannot see the sun! << i hazard that pogo is not the thing

01:18:34 ben_vulpes: but the people setting pogos up is the thing

01:18:40 ben_vulpes: the difference between "fire and forget"

01:19:00 ben_vulpes: and giving some random noobs the opportunity to play bitcoinrpb

01:19:05 ben_vulpes: bitcoingrpg*

01:19:16 ben_vulpes: see there's eulora for the gamers

01:19:24 ben_vulpes: qntra for the writers

01:19:29 ben_vulpes: and the real bitcoin for the hackers

01:19:32 SuchWow: sry, super sleep dep, 14 hour workdays, being engaged on multiple chans

01:19:34 SuchWow: reading

01:20:01 ben_vulpes: it's okay suchwaoender, i'm approximately 1.8lol behind

01:20:12 SuchWow: we need lolyears

01:20:26 ben_vulpes: 1.8klol*

01:20:36 ben_vulpes: a lol is a "line of log", SuchWow.

01:20:36 SuchWow: whereas the speed of lol is somehow inversely proportional to the speed of gossip on the interent or some such

01:20:43 SuchWow: or that would work to

01:20:49 ben_vulpes: gossip is already a reserved term, sorry.

01:20:52 SuchWow: *too

01:21:24 SuchWow: yeah, no, i'm seriously too wasted (exhausted) to have much intelligent discourse. Thanks for the up tho, next time :)

01:21:53 ben_vulpes: SuchWow: get a fucking key.

01:21:55 ben_vulpes: fucking register.

01:22:14 ben_vulpes: shinohai: you up him again...

01:22:18 ben_vulpes: I KEEL U

01:22:23 SuchWow: this is irc lol

01:22:33 SuchWow: i will not register with anything for the ability to speak in an irc chan

01:22:37 SuchWow: it's just ludicrous imo

01:22:44 SuchWow: exercise basic chan mgmt :)

01:22:52 SuchWow: i opped #dogecoin for 18 months

01:22:55 SuchWow: it *can* be done lol

01:22:56 shinohai: ludicrous how? to verify your identity securely?

01:23:05 SuchWow: i regged with nickserv

01:23:07 SuchWow: that's plenty

01:23:09 *: shinohai dogecoin is a scam

01:23:22 SuchWow: i haven't paid attention to dogecoin in the longest time

01:23:41 BingoBoingo: Wow, init.cpp got bloated between 0.5.3 and 0.9

01:24:00 shinohai: http://bit.ly/1glId2X

01:24:01 assbot: Why Dogecoin is a scam, why the people pushing it are assholes, why Business Insider is a contemptible piece of shit, why anyone who ever worked for it will be dancing in the street for nickels and why Kevin Rose is a fuckwit. Plus other considerations. on fraudsters - A blog by Mircea Popescu. ... ( http://bit.ly/1INvd14 )

01:24:24 BingoBoingo: More than doubled in size

01:25:00 SuchWow: i think dogecoin is mainly just investor speculation at this point, and obviously several very large investors from early on and probably throughout

01:25:20 SuchWow: the community has shrunk almost as exponentially as it grew over the last year

01:25:35 SuchWow: but i don't think this chan is about that kind of stuff?

01:26:06 SuchWow: everytime i talk here, you all start bring up dogecoin - for the record, it has never once been me.

01:27:21 shinohai: > but i don't think this chan is about that kind of stuff?

01:27:59 shinohai: anywho ben_vulpes did u say i no can give cheezburger to SuchWow ?

01:28:17 SuchWow: he's just fuckin around cuz he wants me to register with your bot or something

01:28:25 SuchWow: it's cool lol

01:28:34 SuchWow: at least i don't bitch about being upped anymore :)

01:30:10 williamdunne: Oh god, Eurola has got me looking over some of the work I had done previously. Not all of em' are good uns'

01:30:57 mats: so, interestingly, one 'Vitaliy Toropov' appears to be a current employee of ZDI (as of 29Apr2015) and... appears to have sold exploits to HT

01:31:04 mats: hue hue hue

01:31:28 mats: er, as of that date, afaik

01:31:48 shinohai: not my bot ftr

01:36:28 mats: https://wikileaks.org/hackingteam/emails/emailid/48098

01:36:29 assbot: WikiLeaks - The Hackingteam Archives ... ( http://bit.ly/1INwIfG )

01:40:21 mats: actually, strike that, having difficulty confirming whether he's actually an employee

01:43:02 shinohai: arch is kinda neat

01:46:17 mircea_popescu: SuchWow investor may not mean what you think it means.

01:46:18 *: BingoBoingo actually trying to put this knob together. ;;;;

01:46:22 mircea_popescu: it's not directly equivalent to "spent money".

02:08:01 shinohai: Erik Voorhees to the rescue again http://coinivore.com/2015/07/09/litecoin-exchange-volume-outpaces-bitcoin-for-first-time/

02:13:32 mod6: So I was stuck on block: 363734, then updated time, restarted bitcoind, now seem be be stuck on 363736 for >24 hours.

02:13:52 asciilifeform: mod6: who are you peered with ?

02:13:58 mod6: mp

02:14:04 asciilifeform: he's wedged iirc !

02:14:12 asciilifeform: stop peering with him until he unwedges

02:14:21 asciilifeform: betcha his clock is off too.

02:14:58 mod6: ok, i had thought that I read somewhere that he said he was gonna let it be until he could examine the fork closer. I never could find it in the log though. Thought maybe I imagined it.

02:15:25 asciilifeform: he did

02:15:32 asciilifeform: and apparently letting it be didn't unwedge it

02:15:42 mod6: ah.

02:15:48 asciilifeform: dollars to doughnuts his clock is off.

02:15:50 asciilifeform: like mine was.

02:16:00 mod6: mine was 25 seconds behind or something.

02:16:26 asciilifeform: that's not enough to wedge

02:17:39 mod6: hrm. maybe im misinterpreted the output

02:18:35 mod6: anyway, it might not be a bad time for me to stop it now anyway, and break off to try some other things. I wanna test build stator on gentoo.

02:19:01 asciilifeform: its natural habitat!

02:19:04 asciilifeform: test, test.

02:19:19 mod6: I see that nubs' gentoo sanity patch isn't applied, wanna get some testing in there. I'm putting a guide together so someone can patch by hand if they like.

02:19:42 asciilifeform: i never needed that one

02:19:45 asciilifeform: to run on my gentoos

02:19:54 asciilifeform: so i never applied it

02:20:00 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 40332 @ 0.00053839 = 21.7143 BTC [+]

02:20:09 asciilifeform: though i think one or two things in it are in my kills_integer_retardation patch

02:20:25 mod6: ok, good to know. i'll give it a shot on my end. will report back sometime next day or so.

02:21:18 mod6: yah. and that is included.

02:22:02 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 43576 @ 0.00053862 = 23.4709 BTC [+]

02:23:30 mod6: in particular, this test will be with vanilla gcc (glibc) and not uclibc. With uclibc, I had to do some extra tweaks: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=11-06-2015#1160161

02:23:30 assbot: Logged on 11-06-2015 02:57:07; mod6: no, those where in there from the beginning. i ended up adding ``#define __STDC_LIMIT_MACROS'' with ``#include <stdint.h>'' to net.cpp, util.cpp and wallet.cpp and then is ok.

02:23:53 asciilifeform: i thought nobody got anywhere with uclibc ... ?

02:24:09 mod6: well, no, never did link for me properly

02:24:18 asciilifeform: anyone try musl yet ?

02:24:36 mod6: but these problems arose during compiliation. and once the above was applied, was seemingly resolved.

02:24:37 williamdunne: https://github.com/hackedteam/rcs-common/blob/master/lib/rcs-common/evidence/file.rb#L17

02:24:38 assbot: rcs-common/file.rb at master · hackedteam/rcs-common · GitHub ... ( http://bit.ly/1GaQg7x )

02:24:46 mod6: haven't tried musl yet no.

02:24:51 mod6: it's on the list.

02:25:04 mod6: heh, it's a long list. :]

02:25:11 asciilifeform: williamdunne: l0l!

02:25:12 mod6: i'll get there though.

02:26:41 williamdunne: asciilifeform: Wonder how many times it was used

02:27:04 williamdunne: Looks like that feature was created at the request of the Italian gov mabbeh

02:27:06 mod6: williamdunne: did you get setup in euloraland?

02:27:20 williamdunne: mod6: Ish, I did all the beginner stuff, and then died

02:27:57 mircea_popescu: mined anything ?

02:28:17 williamdunne: mircea_popescu: No, dieded. Then had some marketing work I figured I ought to be doing

02:28:22 williamdunne: To be continued

02:29:40 mircea_popescu: mod6 it won't go past that for a while.

02:29:55 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: is your node still wedged ?

02:30:11 mircea_popescu: im sure it is.

02:30:22 asciilifeform: and clock ?

02:30:26 mircea_popescu: hm

02:30:47 asciilifeform: make sure to compare epoch clock

02:30:50 asciilifeform: not calendar

02:30:54 mircea_popescu: $date

02:30:54 mircea_popescu: Thu Jul 9 22:30:43 EDT 2015

02:30:57 mod6: hi mircea_popescu! ok thanks. ima shut it down for now. although, im gonna sync against it with obsd here in the next few days.. different env.

02:31:12 *: BingoBoingo nearing -minrelaytxfee recipe

02:31:30 mircea_popescu: better ?

02:32:14 asciilifeform: date +%s

02:32:16 asciilifeform: ^^^^^^^

02:32:43 mircea_popescu: 1436495557

02:32:48 mod6: 1436495564

02:33:11 asciilifeform: hm matches mine within a few s

02:33:15 mod6: yea

02:33:20 asciilifeform: and still at original wedgepoint ?

02:33:25 mircea_popescu: well yes.

02:33:32 asciilifeform: peer count ?

02:35:07 mircea_popescu: netstat -ao | grep "8333" | wc -l

02:35:07 mircea_popescu: 55

02:35:51 asciilifeform: does mircea_popescucoind keep logs ?

02:35:58 mircea_popescu: sure.

02:35:58 asciilifeform: anything re: rejected blocks in those

02:36:39 mircea_popescu: nah just spam txn rejected.

02:37:12 asciilifeform: that'd be most peculiar

02:37:43 asciilifeform: it would mean, if there is nothing peculiarly tight-lipped about mircea_popescucoind's logging mechanism, that no one has so much as tried throwing the recent blocks at it

02:38:24 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform so was the xemist guy nobody voiced actually al ?

02:38:30 asciilifeform: waitasec

02:38:31 asciilifeform: when was that

02:38:34 asciilifeform: fuck

02:38:58 mircea_popescu: heh. paymoar attention

02:39:15 *: asciilifeform scrolls

02:39:20 *: asciilifeform was... elsewhere

02:39:22 mircea_popescu: anyway, i shall be off playin

02:39:26 mircea_popescu: laters!

02:39:29 asciilifeform: come back, Xemist

02:39:31 asciilifeform: damn.

02:40:30 *: asciilifeform sent him a mail with link to this logtime..

02:40:54 mod6: <+mircea_popescu> !up Xemist

02:41:12 mod6: he came here, was here for 5 minutes, was up'd while here, never said anything.

02:41:22 asciilifeform: hm

02:41:39 mod6: <+mircea_popescu> Xemist you wouldn't be al would you ?

02:41:53 mod6: no response to that either.

02:42:11 asciilifeform: mod6: netsplit ??

02:42:14 asciilifeform: i don't see this up

02:42:15 asciilifeform: or the convo

02:42:38 asciilifeform: OR he got ddosed

02:42:41 mod6: lemme check for split, and i'll paste the log.

02:42:43 asciilifeform: which is still a thing

02:43:05 asciilifeform: ;;later tell mircea_popescu when do we get the ddoser's head on a stick?

02:43:05 gribble: The operation succeeded.

02:44:10 mod6: i don't see any splits in my log, but here's the log from b-a: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=09-07-2015#1195623

02:44:10 assbot: Logged on 09-07-2015 21:25:25; mircea_popescu: !up Xemist

02:44:31 asciilifeform: it isn't in my log!

02:44:42 asciilifeform: or in log.bitcoin-assets.com !

02:44:47 asciilifeform: go, see

02:44:54 mod6: i can paste mine if that helps, but connect/disconnect msgs included

02:44:59 asciilifeform: i believe

02:45:05 asciilifeform: but ipso facto netsplit

02:45:21 mod6: check the log link I just posted above.

02:45:21 scoopbot_revived: Mouse / Keyboard Automation for Linux http://fraudsters.com/2015/mouse-keyboard-automation-for-linux/

02:46:06 asciilifeform: mod6: apologies, i had the 10-7 page up

02:46:11 asciilifeform: yes, it's in there.

02:46:21 asciilifeform: gonna guess he got ddosed.

02:46:40 mod6: ah, ok. he came in from webchat, looks like to me.

02:46:54 asciilifeform: aha, iirc danielpbarron invited him to.

02:47:08 mod6: ah

02:47:50 asciilifeform: !up Vexual

02:53:28 asciilifeform: for completeness, i will also mention the possibility that we (or what al can see of us in his light-cone) didn't pass his bozo filter.

02:53:44 BingoBoingo: http://dpaste.com/3V1972C.txt

02:53:44 assbot: ... ( http://bit.ly/1dPsXcE )

02:54:34 BingoBoingo: ^ recipe for adding flag to stator

02:55:31 asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: methinks you left something out ?

02:55:50 asciilifeform: grep -i nMinRelayTxFee * | wc -l

02:55:50 asciilifeform: 0

02:56:58 BingoBoingo: Ah, wrong version

02:57:32 asciilifeform: what version was the patch for ?

02:58:02 BingoBoingo: stator. I mean wrong version of the revision, lemme pull up init.cpp and fix this

02:58:16 asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: no reason to hurry

02:58:34 mod6: true. and perhaps use unified diff

02:58:47 asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: i normally post patches after i read five times or so, and test them (to the point where 150,000+ blocks are pulled)

02:58:55 BingoBoingo: no idea what unified diff means

02:59:47 asciilifeform: congrats to BingoBoingo though, for taking the gloves off and going at the patch game

02:59:48 mod6: i just had that in hand.

02:59:54 mod6: yeah, thasnks BingoBoingo

03:00:20 mod6: anyway, that link is a bit old as it describes the directories as: bitcoin-bitcoin-a8def6b

03:05:04 BingoBoingo: I know nothing better to do

03:06:53 asciilifeform: a few other nitpicks. the all-caps convention in bitcoind refers to constants

03:07:53 asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: printf happens to return 1 (true) if it succeeded in printf-ing

03:08:06 asciilifeform: so you'd want to printf and then return false

03:08:42 asciilifeform: this is not seriously important in this case, but it follows 'unix philosophy' in the sense that a proggy returning false lets you use its failure as part of a shell script

03:09:22 asciilifeform: that's pretty much it.

03:11:07 asciilifeform: not a bad start BingoBoingo

03:11:20 asciilifeform: this patch is gonna be a first-class bitch to actually test though..

03:13:46 *: asciilifeform listens to the sound of silence

03:14:47 asciilifeform: ~another~ interesting scientific instrument would be a fly trap for invalid tx

03:15:02 asciilifeform: who is sending what kind of retarded tx, and why?

03:15:17 asciilifeform: how often - bad sig

03:15:29 asciilifeform: and how often is the latter a plausible result of bitrot

18:55:35 mircea_popescu: ascii_field close enough, since any two clocks are an entropy measuring tool.

18:55:57 ascii_field: pretty bad tool unless the resolution of said clocks is high

18:56:00 mircea_popescu: and any programmable computer necessarily has an interrupt clock

18:56:02 ascii_field: (1sec certainly doesn't cut it)

18:56:05 mircea_popescu: so adding a 2nd => rng.

18:56:41 ascii_field: thing is, rng needs attributes ~other~ than 'shits entropy'. namely, not to be correlated with variables manipulable or monitorable by enemy

18:56:43 mircea_popescu: ascii_field i have no idea what sort of an argument is this. there's no such thing as good or bad entropy. the thing is unqualifiable by definition. do you mean that you'd have to wait longer to generate a strong address? so you would.

18:56:52 ascii_field: interrupts are precisely the wrong kind of animal

18:56:54 mircea_popescu: at the rate people use adresses you need something like 1 byte of entropy per hour.

18:58:50 ascii_field: 'bad entropy' is easy: the kind which the enemy can cut you off from by silencing your net connection; or the kind he can guess some bits of, by watching packets (no interrupt source in pogo is in any sense entropic other than the NIC's)

18:59:53 mircea_popescu: i guess, but there's some practical security considerations here.

18:59:59 ascii_field: at any rate, if you really must have rng on pogo for some perverse reason, can do it right now

19:00:00 mircea_popescu: yes, you can't run satoshi dice off a pogo.

19:26:03 *: mircea_popescu kinda likes the fake look, ftr. if nothing else, it shows the girl is trying, and willing to go to extreme inconvenience for an idea. and it's the right sort of idea, too : pleasing others.

19:26:14 mircea_popescu: much better than the alternative "career woman" from a purely moral standpoint.

19:27:10 mircea_popescu: the latter may be right, but in principle she'll be right some of the time and it's necessarily hard to separate them. the latter's gonna be nice, also some of the time, but much easier to separate.

19:31:31 ascii_field: why?!

19:31:34 ascii_field: why a given

19:31:49 mircea_popescu: because there's not enough brains to feed seven billion heads.

19:35:53 mircea_popescu: in any case, disparaging the owner of a technologically improved sexual body while at the same time holding notionm like, "marry - to satisfy social expectations, be they in the form of taxation or citizenship or anythin else" seems confused.

19:47:47 ascii_field: probably

19:48:25 ascii_field: kakobrekla did point out (later in thread) that none of it would make a whit of difference

19:49:27 mircea_popescu: to make things too pointed for life : tyhis place doesn't need X, for any given x. it can use x, but it has alternatives. X however, ~does not~ have alternatives. he pretends like he does and perceives that he does. he does not. the reason this is the case is specifically for particularities of this place that should never be fixed.

19:49:47 mircea_popescu: for should they ever be fixed, yes, it'd perhaps be "easier" for x to get involved. nevertheless, it'll also be pointless for anyone to get involved.

19:51:06 ascii_field: this is a good summary of why, e.g., voice model and gpg mechanizm

19:51:28 mircea_popescu: exaclty.
