00:08:46 danielpbarron: better get to writing

00:09:03 hegemoOn: how much does it pay ? :)

00:09:10 danielpbarron: and reading (the logs)

00:09:49 danielpbarron: 1 S.QNTR share per word published, not including blockquotes (or footnotes?)

00:10:34 danielpbarron: it's about 5 USD worth per paragraph at current prices

00:16:17 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 41800 @ 0.00042614 = 17.8127 BTC [+] {3}

00:53:02 cazalla: but if anyone meets the criteria, there are more than enough bids on s.qntr to make it worth your while, bingoboingo and i can't cover every single one so there is room

00:55:27 TheNewDeal: How does one receive shares sans mpex account?

00:56:44 cazalla: TheNewDeal, coinbr

00:57:06 TheNewDeal: Mmmm gotcha

00:58:31 TheNewDeal: ;;bids 216.90

01:47:44 asciilifeform: kakobrekla: how much work to auto-kick join/part sp4mz0rz?

01:48:58 asciilifeform: http://cryptome.org/2015-info/femen-strauss/femen-strauss.htm

01:48:59 assbot: ... ( http://bit.ly/1Ec9Cd9 )

01:49:21 asciilifeform: ^ self-explanatory

01:51:29 PeterL: I feel like I need an explanation, wth are they doing?

01:51:53 asciilifeform: *auto-ban

01:52:42 asciilifeform: this is not only annoying but is a ddos vector of a kind.

01:53:51 PeterL: ddos how?

01:54:02 asciilifeform: log bloat

01:54:17 mike_c: so turn off join/part notifications?

01:54:23 asciilifeform: why should i

01:54:49 asciilifeform: 'doctor, arm hurts.' 'here, let me saw off'

01:55:00 PeterL: lol

01:55:03 mike_c: 'doctor, arm hurts' 'ok, i will build robotic arm for you'

01:55:33 PeterL: add culprits to ignore list?

01:55:42 mike_c: auto-ban seems harsh for something that may not be intentional

01:56:24 asciilifeform: may not be intentional << i might care if it were an actual person

01:56:45 PeterL: but according to gavin, disk space doubles every year, so you should not worry about bloat!!!1!

01:57:00 mike_c: if assbot autobans though, it may be actual person next time

01:57:02 asciilifeform: as it is, it's one of the silent remoras that may just as well be the ddosbot

01:57:05 danielpbarron: it's the same message over and over so it should compress well :p

01:57:34 mike_c: but, i am biased as i have join/part turned off.

01:57:37 danielpbarron: hey that was a different quit message; i think he got the message

01:58:51 PeterL: does log bloat count as ddos? it is not really denying you services?

02:00:05 danielpbarron: if my hard drive gets full it does

02:00:19 asciilifeform: PeterL: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com//?date=10-02-2015#1014281

02:00:19 assbot: Logged on 10-02-2015 02:58:05; asciilifeform: mircea_popescu, BingoBoingo, cazalla, other writery folks: anybody up for writing a basic likbez for the 'unified theory' of amplification attack as it applies not only to boring ddos but to gavincoin and in general to any system where some bozo can inflict cost C on you by spending c where c < C

02:00:38 asciilifeform: ^ mircea_popescu thought that this was obvious and doesn't need a likbez. turns out he was wrong ?

02:01:01 asciilifeform: PeterL: ddos vectors are about potentials.

02:01:29 PeterL: I guess it would be different with a concered attack rather than one idiot with a bad connection

02:01:49 PeterL: s/concered/concerted

02:01:55 asciilifeform: idiot with bad connection gives ideas to malicious idiots with many good connections.

02:03:06 PeterL: so you are suggesting putting in a join/part cap autoban now, to stop potental attacks in the future?

02:03:23 asciilifeform: just putting the concept on kako's radar.

02:03:38 asciilifeform: (assuming it wasn't already somewhere down on the list)

02:03:42 danielpbarron: maybe a command similar to !down that requires a few people to initiate

02:04:16 PeterL: !kick ?

02:04:34 asciilifeform: PeterL: idiot can rejoin after kick

02:04:41 asciilifeform: has to be a ban

02:04:49 danielpbarron: or maybe the reverse; assbot autobans, and if it was a mistake someone can !unban

02:04:58 asciilifeform: ^

02:05:16 asciilifeform: exempt folks in wot, these must face actual judgement of their peers

02:05:27 asciilifeform: but for remoras - the swiftest possible discipline.

02:05:39 PeterL: maybe if kicked then assbot also bans for n minutes? (n=30?)

02:06:07 danielpbarron: kick is such a silly irc command

02:06:41 PeterL: remora: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Remora

02:06:43 assbot: Remora - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia ... ( http://bit.ly/1EcfnYk )

02:06:57 asciilifeform: yes, them.

02:07:05 PeterL: nice name

02:07:07 asciilifeform: the suction cup fish.

02:07:29 PeterL: I like the imagery

02:07:31 decimation: asciilifeform: I second request for the likbez, would be useful to link

02:08:37 decimation: re: ddos < last night I noticed my internet had been taken offline by ISP, and I wonder if somehow the ddos'er can hack cloaks

02:08:58 asciilifeform: decimation: are you entirely certain that your client did not disconnect & auto-rejoin ?

02:09:05 asciilifeform: decimation: cloak tends to go to pieces in that situation

02:09:07 decimation: no it was disconnected at the modem

02:09:19 asciilifeform: yes, but prior to that

02:09:34 decimation: it's possible, I don't log closely

02:09:50 asciilifeform: and, disconnected how? had to open a service ticket with isp ?

02:10:03 decimation: well, I have a dsl modem with shitty chinese firmware

02:10:24 decimation: in its 'status' page it said "DSL Connected" but "Internet Disconnected"

02:10:39 decimation: I'm pretty sure "internet disconnected" meant that the pppoe session was down

02:11:20 *: decimation is sad that ppp is used over a perfectly 8-bit clean channel

02:12:22 asciilifeform: may as well also be said about tcp over lan, where no packet ought to ever drop unless the place is on fire...

02:12:33 decimation: good point.

02:12:50 decimation: there's plenty of shitgnomery in telco deployments

02:13:18 decimation: in this way, the docsis design is at least a clean sheet without layers of 'channelized data' thinking

02:14:13 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 11100 @ 0.00042906 = 4.7626 BTC [-] {2}

02:15:18 danielpbarron: http://l.b-a.link/?date=27-11-2014#937343

02:15:19 assbot: Logged on 27-11-2014 18:53:32; fluffypony: besides, this is a trivial problem - all IRC servers in a network need to be in-sync (services etc.), so just sync up a table of IP -> random string key-value pairs

02:15:39 danielpbarron: decimation, ^

02:18:23 decimation: danielpbarron: yes, it is amazing that nobody has done this

02:18:23 assbot: AMAZING COMPANY!

02:18:57 decimation: only the endpoint server to which you are connected has any business knowing your ip

02:20:26 decimation: the shitgomes at google and facebook manage to 'sync' your account across many machines without revealing your ip to anybody

02:20:34 decimation: http://ownme.ipredator.se/ < amusement

02:20:35 assbot: BTC Piñata ... ( http://bit.ly/1EcjnrK )

02:21:14 asciilifeform: ^ amusement but not as author meant. 10btc is a laughable bounty for the problem posed.

02:21:24 decimation: asciilifeform: aye

02:28:52 PeterL: it's 4:20 somewhere

02:31:07 thestringpuller: heh

02:32:19 asciilifeform: decimation: it belongs in roughly the same circus of lulz as, e.g., microshit's offer of 50-100k usd for 0days that are each worth a million pwned boxes, and the like.

02:38:09 mircea_popescu: cazalla bingoboingo "It would be nice to see more articles like this, but I won't hold my breath." :D

02:38:15 mircea_popescu: i tell you this is a niche :D

02:48:42 mircea_popescu: wasn't the party line that isis is really friendly ?

02:48:57 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: only when it was called 'syrian rebels'

02:49:07 mircea_popescu: oh oh i see.

02:49:13 mircea_popescu: so what about the ukraine rebels ?

02:49:14 asciilifeform: the usual afghani switcheroo.

02:49:19 mircea_popescu: once they start gasing people ?

02:49:43 PeterL: now they are saying that the friendly syrian rebels are different from ISIS

02:49:48 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 2703 @ 0.00041619 = 1.125 BTC [-]

02:50:02 asciilifeform: aha just like the friendly mujahedeen

02:50:03 mircea_popescu: i can almost feel this coming, you know, by 2018 it will be "these ukrainian rebels that did ATROCITIES!!! that russia invented!"

02:50:11 PeterL: in Ukraine the rebels are terrists

02:50:27 mircea_popescu: PeterL not those rebels, the other rebels. the derps in kiev.

02:51:29 mircea_popescu: this is my ukrainian prediction : that before the decade is out a) kiev will be widely reported to have run atrocious concentration camps and b) the us/nato will be misrepresenting themselves as "against this" and russia as somehow related to it.

02:51:54 asciilifeform: sop.

02:52:03 mircea_popescu: i have never known of a militaristic regime that was frustrated in the field / widely inept military that didn't start massacring civillians.

02:52:14 mircea_popescu: it's like the loser husband with a smal penis - always beats the wife.

02:52:27 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: kiev's been grinding up civvies in industrial quantities for most of a year.

02:52:39 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i know. i'm the one with the intel.

02:52:42 asciilifeform: via shellings, rather than gasenwagen, but quite deliberately

02:52:48 mircea_popescu: but somehow the us propaganda machine seems to have never heard of this.

02:52:50 asciilifeform: it isn't any kind of secret

02:52:53 asciilifeform: except from anglos

02:52:54 asciilifeform: 'ESL'

02:53:07 asciilifeform: anyone who gives a fuck can get a live video feed of the 'fun'

02:53:09 mircea_popescu: i dunno dude, i seem to have missed the 500 headlines a day about how kiev is atrocious.

02:53:24 mircea_popescu: perhaps because of all the derpage about "women slave markets in the middle east"

02:53:44 mircea_popescu: (if anyone's going send me a coupla cherchez chicks too)

02:55:01 mircea_popescu: or how do you call it, Карача́ево

02:55:31 asciilifeform: kiev 'idea' was 'let's shell'em a bit and they'll pack up to ru, then we get cities, factories that we had no part in building, gratis, free of ru speakers, we can settle in our west ua orcs'

02:55:43 PeterL: I have a friend from Crimea, he still has family there, says they are all grateful to Putin for saving them from the fate of the rest of Ukraine

02:55:57 *: asciilifeform has blood relations there, ditto

02:56:00 mircea_popescu: PeterL this would be the general sentiment.

02:56:27 PeterL: mircea_popescu: but this sentiment is not reflected in the US press

02:56:31 mircea_popescu: how the fuck do you call these people in english anyway ?

02:56:34 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform dja know ?

02:56:40 asciilifeform: who?

02:56:48 mircea_popescu: karachay ? cherkesia ?

02:56:52 asciilifeform: circassians

02:56:58 mircea_popescu: the traditionally highest priced white chicks in arab slave markets

02:56:59 mircea_popescu: ah

02:57:25 asciilifeform: as written in n. barber's 'the sultans' and other classics

02:57:51 mircea_popescu: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/1/16/Flag_of_Adygea.svg < yeah that.

02:57:52 assbot: ... ( http://bit.ly/19aQpPR )

02:58:42 decimation: speaking of predictions: I predict that hawaiians will be considered 'official indians' and be put on the bezzle dole http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2015/feb/10/china-threatens-arm-hawaii-separatists-who-want-ki/

02:58:43 assbot: China threatens to arm Hawaii separatists who want kingdom - Washington Times ... ( http://bit.ly/19aQvqA )

02:59:05 mircea_popescu: chinese sea base in hawaii would be pretty epic

02:59:20 mircea_popescu: you know they want it. you know they could actually get it.

02:59:38 decimation: there has been 'debate' for years on whether the 'native hawaiians (korean slaves)' should be considered 'indians' and given bezzlars

02:59:51 mircea_popescu: that's clearly drawing to an end, yeah.

03:00:07 PeterL: decimation: next bombing of Pearl Harbor comes from the east?

03:00:18 decimation: well, if they have the patience to wait 100 years they might get it

03:00:30 asciilifeform: http://www.dpvintageposters.com/cgi-local/detail.cgi?d=9685 << related

03:00:31 assbot: DP Vintage Posters - Free Leonard Peltier Original USSR Soviet Union anti-American Protest Poster ... ( http://bit.ly/1Ectw7Y )

03:00:41 mircea_popescu: decimation they could get it next year if they cared enough.

03:00:51 decimation: hilariously, the actual hawaiian islands are 100% dependent on usg military, etc for income

03:01:07 mircea_popescu: decimation problem is chinese military has way more money.

03:01:11 decimation: if they became 'independent' they would just become someone else's bitch

03:01:30 mircea_popescu: ask anyone working for military tech, they'll tell you 2/3 to 90% of the chinese performance is due to "Stable financing"

03:01:49 mircea_popescu: decimation if they're going to be a bitch they might as well suck the shorter, better paying cock.

03:02:15 asciilifeform: another factor is that the 'middle kingdom' has yet to invent the modern military golden toilet.

03:02:17 decimation: I don't think the us military would give up hawaii without an actual war

03:02:22 mircea_popescu: o rly ?

03:02:30 mircea_popescu: lose 6 of the 10 aircraft carriers ?

03:02:35 decimation: of course, if they are too poor to pay anyone...

03:02:48 PeterL: it is a strategic navy port

03:02:56 mircea_popescu: and about 50 to 70% of the rest of the fleet ?

03:03:21 mircea_popescu: if they do that russia can simply move into poland. or japan.

03:03:25 decimation: nah, the prc doesn't really have a blue water navy

03:03:27 mircea_popescu: i wonder, which way they;'d go.

03:03:42 mircea_popescu: decimation it has missiles capable of bridging to hawaii just fine.

03:03:46 mircea_popescu: it's kinda close to them

03:03:56 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: would you take jp? and for what ?

03:04:05 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i would not take either.

03:04:15 decimation: I don't think china has the balls to start a missile war with usg

03:04:16 asciilifeform: pl makes a great nuke waste dump

03:04:20 asciilifeform: just like latvia

03:04:24 mircea_popescu: so does japan nowadays :D

03:04:29 asciilifeform: jp is full

03:04:42 mircea_popescu: but that's "why" : let the engineers move to st petersburg.

03:04:51 mircea_popescu: let the social studies experts rot in tokyo

03:05:15 asciilifeform: is jp long on 'experts' ?

03:05:25 mircea_popescu: kind-of.

03:05:30 decimation: now, the problem that usg has is that in 30 years, they might not be able to pay for missiles or soldiers

03:06:03 asciilifeform: decimation: they're working on a smooth transition to straight inca mode

03:06:04 mircea_popescu: decimation if the chinese shock the market (putting obama in the position of putin), they won't have what to pay for limo gasoline with.

03:06:42 *: decimation emits parse error

03:07:14 mircea_popescu: the entire non-"government shutdown" is predicated on rolling debt at 0.2% or less.

03:07:25 mircea_popescu: this can not happen without chinese aquiescence.

03:07:27 decimation: yes indeed

03:07:36 decimation: well, china is actually a fairly small owner of usg debt

03:07:43 mircea_popescu: if the chinese go 8% or fuck you, that's the end of paying. for anything.

03:07:49 mircea_popescu: not a matter of "Debt ceiling" anymore.

03:07:59 mircea_popescu: yes, but it's a fairly major player in the financial markets.

03:08:03 decimation: http://www.cnsnews.com/news/article/terence-p-jeffrey/foreign-ownership-us-government-debt-passes-6-trillion

03:08:04 assbot: Foreign Ownership of U.S. Government Debt Passes $6 Trillion | CNS News ... ( http://bit.ly/19aRhUu )

03:08:16 decimation: well, the way all the 'smart

03:08:21 mircea_popescu: does that include the belgium trololol ?

03:08:25 decimation: liberals think now, they would say 'that's not a problem'

03:08:38 asciilifeform: so usg will move to straight command economy.

03:08:40 mircea_popescu: sure, it's not a problem. but there's no paying for anything either.

03:08:44 decimation: the fed will just print more bezzlars and loan them at whatever rate is our choosing

03:08:44 asciilifeform: 'inca empire'

03:08:48 PeterL: at that point they will need to speed up the presses and hyperinflate out of debt

03:08:56 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform it would last for what, 18 months ?

03:09:12 asciilifeform: the incas carried on considerably longer than that...

03:09:48 asciilifeform: will chug on until the conquistadores show up.

03:09:53 decimation: asciilifeform: what does usg have to compel a trade?

03:10:13 mircea_popescu: the incas carried out considerably longer on that principally because they weren't trying to keep carriers afloat.

03:10:16 mircea_popescu: that takes money.

03:10:26 asciilifeform: takes slaves.

03:10:30 asciilifeform: usg - has plenty.

03:10:38 decimation: not to mention keeping old people & minorities in free living

03:10:39 mircea_popescu: only provided they're allowed to roll debt.

03:10:50 asciilifeform: slaves to crew the boat, pull the hydrocarbons out of the ground, everything in between.

03:11:08 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform your model implies i am going to be able to buy off us destroyers.

03:11:16 asciilifeform: eventually

03:11:22 mircea_popescu: within years.

03:11:27 asciilifeform: aha

03:11:32 mircea_popescu: well... not much of a plan is it.

03:12:02 PeterL: what would you do with a destroyer?

03:12:03 *: asciilifeform isn't usg vizier, isn't paid to plan

19:18:48 mircea_popescu: <mthreat> np << o hey, how's the south pole ?

19:20:16 mircea_popescu: pete_dushenski basically what i see is a cargo cult generation. if you've ever seen monty python's twit of the year sketch that's basiclaly the idea.

19:20:29 mircea_popescu: their grandparents were pretty cool. their parents rather mediocre. now they're fucked in the head.

19:20:50 mircea_popescu: they kinda get a very superficial formal thing about granpa, but otherwise the head dun work.

19:21:06 mircea_popescu: argentina is set for a much more major collapse than anyone seems to realise.

19:22:19 pete_dushenski: hm. not sure that anyone is giving the 'tines much in the way of odds these days

19:23:20 pete_dushenski: lol!

19:23:41 pete_dushenski: mebbe that's why kakkes left.

19:24:12 mircea_popescu: anyway, it's a great place, but the people are inept to a degree that can not even be put into words. doesn't even look like a year's famine would be enough, more biblical measures required, 30 years in the desert, stuff like that.

19:25:14 pete_dushenski: the weather will do that

19:25:43 pete_dushenski: see northern mediterraneans

19:27:43 ben_vulpes: pete_dushenski: i'm all for banning cars.

19:27:46 ben_vulpes: horrid invention.

19:27:54 mircea_popescu: "no cars in town" is not a bad idea.

19:27:56 ben_vulpes: especially in the mass production everyone having one.

19:28:04 ben_vulpes: they're brutal on the roads.

19:28:19 pete_dushenski: ben_vulpes: that's like saying "the car is a horrid invention because i don't like windoze"

19:28:22 ben_vulpes: roads themselves aren't expensive, nor the maintenance thereof but rather the wear and tear from 2-ton tardboxes

19:28:27 mircea_popescu: pete_dushenski right. those twits ? their dad was nobody, some anon derp with, as orwell put it, "Well-meaning, over-civilized men, in dark suits and black felt hats, with neatly rolled umbrellas crooked over the left forearm, were imposing their constipated view of life"

19:28:27 pete_dushenski: s/car/computer

19:28:36 mircea_popescu: but the grandfather was you know, "peccavi"

19:29:18 mircea_popescu: General Sir Charles James Napier, GCB

19:29:21 ben_vulpes: pete_dushenski: well i exaggerate for btclulz. clearly *you* are deserving of your mercs and what have you, but the state of every pleb in their own plastic wheelbox has got to go.

19:29:46 ben_vulpes: and yes, the "computer" as a modern invention (from the c machine on forwards to the consumer laptop) is an entirely awful fork in the technological roadmap.

19:30:01 ben_vulpes: see previous thread about "wake me when compute costs 1btc/hr".

19:30:08 pete_dushenski: well i'm hardly going to disagree that everyone getting something "just as good" makes the whole lot of us worse off

19:31:05 mircea_popescu: soo... slavedrawn mercs ?

19:31:07 pete_dushenski: no cars in town is a perfectly sensible idea in most parts of the world

19:31:44 pete_dushenski: lol well the thing drinks like 30L/100km so that's a lot of (indirect) slave labour from the oil sands up north

19:31:47 ben_vulpes: for all that it's a communist paradise, portland does get this right. lots of super annoying stop lights on major thoroughfares throughout the east side.

19:32:08 ben_vulpes: east side being mostly residential, mostly small streets.

19:32:10 pete_dushenski: iirc there was a german city that was going to all-out ban cars in the city centre

19:32:16 pete_dushenski: a sizeable city it was

19:32:45 mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes that's the wrong approach imo.

19:32:51 mircea_popescu: like the fucking speed bumps.

19:32:51 pete_dushenski: as to whether this works in the populated arctic... i dunno

19:33:06 mircea_popescu: i don't need to be jostled just because sopme other fuckhead can't drive at his speed.

19:36:33 pete_dushenski: ah, it was hamburg

19:36:54 pete_dushenski: and it aims to be car-free in the city centre... by 2034

19:37:51 pete_dushenski: which is reasonable given that in 20 years the serene republic will own it as a summer resort ;)

19:38:09 mircea_popescu: except this is a naked problem of power. i would be ok with a "no cars" town in which i personally can drive if i feel like.

19:38:24 mircea_popescu: i will not be ok with a "no cars" town in which the fucking mayor/police/you get to drive if you feel like

19:38:32 mircea_popescu: and by "not ok" i mean i will fucking shoot you over it.

19:38:38 mircea_popescu: this being a bit of a problem, practically.

19:39:30 pete_dushenski: well imagine that there will be "no car" rules in most major cities in 20 years

19:39:46 mircea_popescu: in the sense of "no cars for you"

19:39:56 pete_dushenski: and that #b-a badges and #b-a plates will roam the streets freely

19:40:03 mircea_popescu: which yes, it has to happen, because most "major cities" are inhabited by... twits.

19:40:50 pete_dushenski: because no city mayor/police/etc can very well stand in the way of the leaders of the free world

19:41:37 mircea_popescu: "Marching gets our message out." No it doesn't, it gets CNN's message out. "We don't watch CNN, we use the internet." Yet given the infinity of the internet you still surf the same 5 websites, looking for and finding exactly what you want, like a baby playing peekaboo in a mirror over and over and over and over and over and over and...

23:04:45 mod6: ah, well anyway, i'm pretty close to having v0.5.3.1 building on freebsd

23:05:22 ascii_field: ditto netbsd

23:06:07 mod6: anyway, with protocol.cpp:

23:06:09 mod6: add:

23:07:23 mod6: #include <netinet/in.h>

23:11:26 PeterL: what does boost do?

23:11:34 thestringpuller: It's a C++ extension library

23:11:40 thestringpuller: to add things like threads and other random bullshit

23:11:57 BingoBoingo: It exists because the CPP standard library sucks

23:11:58 thestringpuller: It would be amazing if mod6 and ben_vulpes could rip it out of the code completely

23:11:58 assbot: AMAZING COMPANY!

23:12:00 PeterL: those are not available in c++?

23:12:22 thestringpuller: no they aren't

23:12:49 thestringpuller: you have to build it yourself or use another library

23:13:01 thestringpuller: and as BingoBoingo just said, CPP standard lib is terrible
