00:51:27 mircea_popescu: 33 days, of which a week here

00:51:37 mircea_popescu: so 26. nope. it ain't happening.

00:52:28 BingoBoingo: The trend says yes, but the externalities say no.

00:53:58 BingoBoingo: lol, is that Dogecoin trying to build some interest?

00:54:09 mircea_popescu: soon.

00:54:45 BingoBoingo: Anyone ever front you that billion Doge to take a short position?

00:55:22 mircea_popescu: notrly.

00:56:08 mircea_popescu: in spite of all the pretense as to "exchanges" and tips and whatnot, it'd seem 99%+ of all doges are actually held by the admin group

00:56:15 mircea_popescu: not much of a currency in any sense.

01:07:20 TheNewDeal: info pgp

01:08:22 *: asciilifeform prodded colleague to reg with gribble. he digs out pgp key from... 1992.

01:08:49 Apocalyptic: I bet it's sub 1024 bit

01:09:00 asciilifeform: 1024 if i recall.

01:22:06 asciilifeform: 'The new, thicker copper layer did resolve the heat build up from the current flow. Temp has been reduced by 20C with the new boards.' (from jborkl, quoting bfl co. lamenting its troubles.)

01:22:21 asciilifeform: ^ what happens to folks who refuse to do arithmetic before going into production

01:22:59 asciilifeform: imagine a manufacturer of, say, ups, or tv, whatnot, posting an update like this.

01:23:06 asciilifeform: why this never happens?

01:23:42 kakobrekla: also preorders

01:23:47 asciilifeform: and this.

01:24:15 asciilifeform: i can almost understand taking preorders if you're a broke, ragged dervish. but these folks have already exited that stage.

01:24:57 asciilifeform: likewise, luring people into preorders to fund a chip fab project almost makes sense. but boards?

01:26:01 kakobrekla: yea but risk on a chip is far greater

01:26:48 asciilifeform: i suspect that: when they tape out a dud asic, they simply... take preorders longer.

01:27:17 asciilifeform: !up pgp

01:27:52 kakobrekla: dunno then why silicon valley isnt silicon anymore.

01:28:55 asciilifeform: because usa.

01:30:45 *: asciilifeform finds u.s. uni professors hotlinking to images on his site; tempted to replace with goatse

01:31:08 Apocalyptic: heh

01:34:49 BingoBoingo: http://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/2014/06/snowdenbot-wasnt-just-for-ted-now-lives-in-his-aclu-lawyers-office/

01:35:16 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [SHA] 5 @ 0.042 = 0.21 BTC

01:43:52 asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: wtf is the point?

01:44:32 BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Some people instead of just doing IRC get a small car instead?

01:44:55 asciilifeform: afaik, these 'robots' were originally intended for 'micromanagement' types to roll around a factory floor, pointing remote-controlled laser pointer at lazy monkeys, mouthing obscenities through speaker

01:47:07 BingoBoingo: It still isn't too late for that.

01:47:10 asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: from your link: http://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/2014/06/us-marshals-step-in-thwart-efforts-to-learn-about-cell-tracking-devices

01:47:11 assbot: US Marshals step in, thwart efforts to learn about cell tracking devices | Ars Technica

01:47:32 asciilifeform: ^ turd concerns the use of a well-known mitm gizmo for cellular

01:48:06 asciilifeform: (consumer pnohes make no effort to authenticate - whatsoever - so this is trivial)

01:48:11 BingoBoingo: Yeah. Amazing how records request can have problems.

01:48:50 asciilifeform: the interesting thing is that there is theoretically no need for such a thing, considering that towers are more or less owned by usg

01:49:30 BingoBoingo: Indeed

01:52:06 asciilifeform: so why mitm? answer: manufacture of guilt.

01:52:33 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 35100 @ 0.00085407 = 29.9779 BTC [-]

01:53:55 asciilifeform: the next 'new york death ray' idiot won't play ball? won't make the necessary phone call? now it can be made... for him.

01:55:34 asciilifeform: this is also the answer for why 'heartbleed' was necessary, considering that usg has at-will access to root certs

01:55:55 asciilifeform: if you can already read, why mitm? answer: for - writing.

01:58:39 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 21522 @ 0.00085677 = 18.4394 BTC [+] {3}

01:59:22 asciilifeform: in other news: http://www.theguardian.com/law/2014/jun/04/major-terrorism-trial-secret-first-time-legal-history

02:12:53 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 6550 @ 0.00086204 = 5.6464 BTC [+] {2}

02:28:17 Blazedout419: omg so who is going to buy into sha on havelock?

02:28:48 mircea_popescu: <asciilifeform> imagine a manufacturer of, say, ups, or tv, whatnot, posting an update like this. << this is a 2012 comment.

02:28:56 mircea_popescu: you're not meta enough by now

02:31:50 mircea_popescu: <asciilifeform> this is also the answer for why 'heartbleed' was necessary, considering that usg has at-will access to root certs << not that simple.

02:31:56 mircea_popescu: it had no access to self-signed certs.

02:33:13 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [SHA] 50 @ 0.042 = 2.1 BTC

02:35:36 mircea_popescu: http://www.theguardian.com/law/2014/jun/04/major-terrorism-trial-secret-first-time-legal-history << re this pile of lol

02:35:36 assbot: Major terrorism trial could be held in secret for first time in UK legal history | Law | theguardian.com

02:36:02 mircea_popescu: on one hand, the legal principle that dorks a la mari reid & her crew may be kept secret will logically extend to defendants, too.

02:36:21 mircea_popescu: now any terrorist and any tax evader has good title to refuse any sort of information sharing, much like the prosecutor's own men do.

02:36:44 mircea_popescu: moreover, they have very little option in the matter, as their safety strictly depends on this sort of secrecy.

02:37:03 mircea_popescu: basically, technology has already made the state impossible, just at the time bitcoin showed up but mostly unrelated to it.

02:37:17 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [AM1] 5 @ 0.26079984 = 1.304 BTC [+] {2}

03:03:55 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: was gonna answer 'but nobody used self-signed certs' - then remembered having done so personally at one point

03:06:08 mircea_popescu: plentyof people do.

03:12:03 Mats_cd03: asciilifeform sees monsters in the shadows

03:12:10 Mats_cd03: i dunno if i can agree

03:13:08 *: asciilifeform also sees monsters under floodlight

03:13:20 Mats_cd03: it could be much more mundane

03:13:41 Mats_cd03: like it costs the telcos money to staff people responding to LEO requests for access

03:13:54 Mats_cd03: and mitm is just simpler in execution

03:14:27 asciilifeform: probably exactly this appears on the grant applications, yes.

03:14:36 Mats_cd03: lol

03:15:45 asciilifeform: incidentally, one can trivially bake the cellular mitm gizmo from consumer hardware. (exercise for alert reader)

03:16:20 Mats_cd03: that sounds interesting, go on

03:16:40 asciilifeform: ;;google verizon network extender hack

03:16:41 gribble: It's a Cinch for Hackers to Break Into Your Verizon Network - Gizmodo: http://gizmodo.com/its-a-cinch-for-hackers-to-break-into-your-verizon-netw-790461949; How To Compete With NSA By Hacking a Verizon Network Extender ...: http://hardware-beta.slashdot.org/story/13/07/16/1343238/how-to-compete-with-nsa-by-hacking-a-verizon-network-extender; DailyTech - Hackers Show Regular (1 more message)

03:17:06 Mats_cd03: i was under the impression the equipment for this kind of thing was approaching <$1000

03:17:13 mircea_popescu: 10 years ago

03:17:15 Mats_cd03: never looked into it

03:17:20 asciilifeform: ^ vendor declared victory after disabling easy firmware update mechanism on the gadget. board still has jtag port, removable flash, etc.

03:17:32 asciilifeform: runs linux!

03:18:09 asciilifeform: used to be that it took actual sweat to source 'miniature tower' radio components

03:19:07 Mats_cd03: o, but patched, hrm

03:19:22 asciilifeform: patch is a joke

03:19:24 asciilifeform: as described above

03:19:29 Mats_cd03: probably

03:19:33 asciilifeform: not probably - certainly

03:19:40 asciilifeform: if i like, i desolder the rom and introduce mine.

03:20:09 asciilifeform: this is a ~$300 gizmo you can buy - retail

03:20:18 asciilifeform: it sits in your house, you can mutilate it at your pleasure

03:20:28 asciilifeform: other u.s. telcos have similar products

03:20:31 Mats_cd03: how interesting

03:20:43 Mats_cd03: do you have a link

03:20:49 mircea_popescu: http://giant.gfycat.com/InsidiousIncredibleAlpinegoat.gif

03:21:06 asciilifeform: but this isn't particularly interesting. the interesting part is that everything people speak of as 'inseekoore!' re: cellular comms, was baked in very deliberately - and publicly - at the start.

03:21:13 asciilifeform: e.g. the toy crypto of gsm

03:22:05 Mats_cd03: i generally presume incompetence before malice

03:22:46 asciilifeform: ;;google A5/1

03:24:08 Mats_cd03: how interesting

03:29:23 asciilifeform: before the telco 'network extender' gizmos were sold (incidentally, a scam - the telco still charges for minutes despite using the chump's own local wired bandwidth!) mitm-ing was demonstrated using 'software defined radio' (inexpensive board, does exactly what is printed on the crate)

03:31:27 dub: femtocells, meh you get to use your handset

03:31:59 asciilifeform: yeah, pay per minute for the privilege of using own hardware.

03:32:02 asciilifeform: great deal.

03:32:31 dub: thats up to provider

03:32:48 asciilifeform: all u.s. providers, last i checked, charged exactly the same on femtocell.

03:32:55 Mats_cd03: neat, ill have something else i can do with the device im ordering

03:32:59 Mats_cd03: http://hakshop.myshopify.com/collections/gadgets/products/hackrf

03:33:00 assbot: HakShop — HackRF Pre-Order

03:33:11 dub: well if you're counting minutes on your mobile, im sorry

03:33:23 Mats_cd03: asciilifeform is probably going to tell me im getting ripped off

03:33:37 dub: nobody has a hardline these days so its a valid offering

03:34:25 asciilifeform: for non-u.s. folks - 'landline' phone is poison here, because it is considered fair game for spam (unlike cell)

03:34:35 asciilifeform: so they're slowly going extinct

03:34:45 *: asciilifeform never had own landline in entire adult life

03:34:51 Mats_cd03: i still get fucking spam

03:34:54 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform thye're not so considered in europe but idem gohing extinct

03:34:56 Mats_cd03: sucks to suck

03:35:25 dub: not so slowly tbh

03:35:47 Mats_cd03: wait 20 years

03:35:47 asciilifeform: i can get pseudo-landline (tack-on to fiber terminal) for around 10 usd / mo. but... why?

03:35:49 mircea_popescu: i had my own landline. it wasn't particularly useful

03:35:59 dub: I have pots signal on my dsl line but I couldnt tell you the number

03:36:06 mircea_popescu: (trivial to tap too. if you think gsm cypher is bad, try headset-and-hairpins)

03:36:50 Mats_cd03: poor cell tower coverage, necessary to have a working phone in an emergency (e.g. elderly person), zombie apocalypse, etc

03:37:27 mircea_popescu: internet should be wired, phone wireless.

03:37:33 asciilifeform: zombie apocalypse with fiber service, right

03:38:01 Mats_cd03: i suppose i should scale it back to natural disaster

03:38:51 dub: the emergency service arguemtn for pots is fast becomming irrelevant as teh network becomes less resilient

03:39:34 Mats_cd03: and how is it becoming less resilient

03:39:41 asciilifeform: the old pots lines are gone where i live.

03:39:43 asciilifeform: see:

13:51:42 mircea_popescu: blackwhite the reason you can't say anything is that you';re not in assbot's l2 wot. have you been reading the logs or just idling idly ?

13:52:35 mircea_popescu: davout what's the backstory on "At the onset of the InstaWallet fiasco, all three URLs didn't have a bitcoin wallet associated with the generated pages. It wasn't till after I brought it to Boussac's attention that the lesser bitcoin-containing wallet was well-document that it mysterious had the associated wallet address visible on the URL generated site. This is why they refuse to release the name of the forensics aud

13:52:35 mircea_popescu: itor(s) because there wasn't one (or more, according to Boussac), in spite of them saying they couldn't because of some fuckin' idiotic NDA clause." ?

13:52:36 blackwhite: I have just been busy so primarily just reading once in a while. Was more involved earlier.

13:53:05 blackwhite: but getting back to getting more involved again.

13:53:08 mircea_popescu: blackwhite right. so meanwhile the channel is +m, to get voice you have to pm assbot !up which only works if you're trusted to any degree by someone assbot trusts.

13:53:22 blackwhite: i see

13:54:09 davout: mircea_popescu: what specific part of the story are you curious about ?

13:54:46 mircea_popescu: well let's see. instawallet had a system whereby ownership is proven by url. the guy had 3 urls. what was not associated with what ?

13:56:24 mircea_popescu: his generative grammar is quite bizarre, i can't follow statements like "all three didn't" worth a crap.

13:56:32 davout: two of his URLs matched to nothing, pretty simple

13:56:36 Apocalyptic: <mircea_popescu> phin put a 400 btc bounty on davout's head !? //looks like it

13:56:51 mircea_popescu: davout what do you mean his and what do you mean nothing

13:56:58 mircea_popescu: did he lose two of his three urls ?

13:57:39 davout: i mean "SELECT COUNT(*) FROM wallets WHERE key = '<phinns wallet key>'" == 0

13:57:43 mircea_popescu: in other news, "Following massive rainfalls in Misiones, Argentina, and Santa Catarina and Paran?, Brazil, the famous Iguaz? Falls are now overflowing, carrying 46,300 cubic meters per second?33 times the usual water flow rate."

13:57:44 davout: for two of the urls

13:58:05 mircea_popescu: davout uh. so then how is it possible he thought he had something there ?

13:58:23 davout: i dunno, and tbh i would like to know too

13:58:52 davout: some people fell for the "oh hey, here is our tor hidden service for instawallet, deposit bitches"

13:58:54 Apocalyptic: "BTW, I would not rule out the possiblity that Boussac himself is a victim of davout to some extent" who's Boussac again ?

13:59:03 davout: except we didn't have a tor hidden service

13:59:05 mircea_popescu: davout so is it possible whoever broke in deleted some records too ?

13:59:18 davout: i checked for that against a few backups

13:59:26 davout: no results

13:59:37 mircea_popescu: what date was the oldest you checked roughly ?

13:59:41 davout: one of the first things i thought of

13:59:44 pankkake: What is it about FRENCH GUYS and Bitcoin?

13:59:44 pankkake: Karpeles, those Dealco guys out of HK, now these scammers

13:59:45 pankkake: French Bitcoiner = AVOID

13:59:53 davout: i don't really recall from the top of my head

14:00:07 davout: i tried to find partial url matches too

14:00:09 mircea_popescu: well were they a week older than the live db ?a month ? more ?

14:00:18 davout: i tried to search by balances

14:00:25 davout: a month or two i think

14:00:54 mircea_popescu: so as best you can determine, there's a month+ interval where according to phinn he had 1k+ btc, but according to your db he had not ?

14:00:54 davout: hence me asking for the deposit addresses and/or the funding transactions

14:01:35 davout: that's what the backups convey

14:02:06 mircea_popescu: http://www.youtube.com/embed/76XfV42YvBI < bonus iguazu

14:02:06 assbot: As estan las Cataratas del Iguazu con la crecida - YouTube

14:02:16 mircea_popescu: davout did instawallet gpg sign anything ?

14:02:22 davout: nope

14:02:43 mircea_popescu: so did you say this to him ? did you get any sort of response ?

14:03:42 fluffypony: mircea_popescu: he gets asked to prove he deposited 1100+ BTC into Instawallet, providing a transaction ID or a signed BTC addy that sent it or ANYTHING, and he just ignores those requests or talks around them

14:03:54 mircea_popescu: aha

14:04:09 davout: i asked him "o hey, maybe it could help me if you gave me the deposit addresses"

14:04:20 mircea_popescu: well he prolly didn't keep records of any kind

14:04:27 davout: the idea being that i could have checked against backups of bitcoind wallets as well with such an information

14:04:39 mircea_popescu: ok, so were you on vacation at the time of the hax ?

14:05:10 davout: well that's kind of what i figured, and i also figured he'd be too dumb to explore the blockchain by himself

14:05:10 blackwhite: pretty good talk on ethereum https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l9dpjN3Mwps

14:05:10 assbot: Vitalik Buterin reveals Ethereum at Bitcoin Miami 2014 - YouTube

14:05:36 davout: so i went there and used tracked all the addresses linked in any way to the unique IW cold storage address

14:05:51 fluffypony: mircea_popescu: sure, BUT if he EVER sent money from Instawallet to someone (say as payment for something) and message'd or email'd them the transaction ID he'd have that, he'd have SOMETHING that could be used

14:06:00 mircea_popescu: davout so he does not make a specific claim to either address or transaction, he makes a specific claim as to balance and to url which can't be verified, is the thing ?

14:06:06 fluffypony: yes

14:06:28 davout: once i had a massive collection of addresses i checked for an address whose received totals matched the balances he claimed, to no avail

14:06:58 davout: took a few days for the script to reverse-explore the chain from the CS address

14:07:20 fluffypony: every thread that's popped up that I've read has him claiming those two Instawallet URLs (plus a third that had 0.825 BTC or something that he disregards), but no further evidence

14:07:24 mircea_popescu: this seems a fools errand as im sure his balance didn't come in one chunk.

14:07:26 davout: ended up with around ~100k addresses to check, none of them received the amounts he mentions in the timeframe he mentions

14:07:30 fluffypony: the URLs could be complete bullshit

14:07:42 davout: mircea_popescu: no, because i checked for totals

14:07:52 fluffypony: mircea_popescu: davout's talking about searching for the total received for each address in a timeframe

14:08:11 mircea_popescu: that ain't gonna work.

14:08:32 mircea_popescu: aaanyway. so were you on vacation when it happened ?

14:08:36 davout: fluffypony: not the received total in a timeframe actually, the received total, and then i checked manually the actual deposits against these addresses

14:09:25 davout: because the guy is pretty specific, 1000 BTC and 132 BTC, sent in december 2012 to an instawallet address

14:09:41 fluffypony: yeah

14:09:47 davout: he even provides the exchange rate at the time, this way i'm sure it's not 2011 or whatever

14:10:59 mircea_popescu: i don't see much substance to his claim it'd be coming out of 1DavouTAsveznCFHsz688xvbrRAq4u2qm8 going to 16d1yGrEDqSY1xhCnAUWrkahGY2mkWdAYk

14:12:08 fluffypony: yeah it's almost like he thinks it impossible that davout could independently have 1k BTC and it *must* come from him

14:12:43 pankkake: http://bitbet.us/propositions/ okay…

14:12:43 assbot: BitBet Propositions

14:13:14 mircea_popescu: fluffypony but if you look at the incoming to that addy, there's no matching chunk

14:14:44 fluffypony: yeah

14:15:06 mircea_popescu: actually 100, 400, 460 during may, 100 late april.

14:15:14 davout: mircea_popescu fluffypony he can go ask jgarzik, the guy paid me 5678 BTC back in the day, also i got into bitcoin at such a time that i mined some blocks on a goddamn CPU

14:15:28 mircea_popescu: but anyway davout so why is he claiming you won't release the liquidator;'s name ?

14:15:38 mircea_popescu: that's exactly contrary to normal procedure, what's that all about ?

14:15:43 davout: he's imagining there is a liquidator

14:15:53 davout: i never said there was one, i said there had been an audit

14:16:08 mircea_popescu: oh.

14:16:11 davout: it was a post-mortem security audit

14:16:16 mircea_popescu: i see.

14:16:28 davout: the guy is very confused

14:16:46 davout: i stopped answering him because i saw he could not grasp some very simple things

14:17:08 davout: i explained to him how a shared wallet works, later he refers to it as mumble-jumble

14:17:08 mircea_popescu: "Reserved to announced that I have reunited with my lost investment."

14:17:14 mircea_popescu: is he francophone ?

14:17:24 davout: he's definitely not francophile

14:17:33 mircea_popescu: lol

14:17:37 fluffypony: lol

14:17:47 mircea_popescu: no but i mean he makes these sentences that break my parser all the time

14:18:21 fluffypony: pankkake: I'm betting yes on "tttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttt"

14:18:28 mircea_popescu: "Ideally, I prefer to have the entire 1,132 BTC, sans the 400 BTC bounty amount, paid in full to me, but knowing that sometimes arbitration takes place, I'm willing to settle for a minimal amount, with anybody acting as liaison to broker their reward up to 100% of what I may finally recognize. The minimum I'm welling to settle for is $50K USD via BTC or fiat to compensate for my initial investment and the mega hours I

14:18:28 mircea_popescu: have put into this fiasco, not to mention the stress."

14:18:42 mircea_popescu: wait so the bounty is out of lol wtf how does this work

14:18:55 mircea_popescu: "I prefer to use Rassah as escrow"

14:19:00 mircea_popescu: so did he fund the bounty or not ?

14:19:04 fluffypony: nope

14:19:16 fluffypony: *if* he gets it he'll pay out 400 BTC or something

14:19:28 davout: the guy is confused, my only hope is that he lawyers up, so that someone can finally talk some sense into him

14:19:46 mircea_popescu: fluffypony so then why any need for an escrow?

14:19:55 fluffypony: nfi

14:20:00 fluffypony: the whole arrangement is confusing as hell

14:20:26 mircea_popescu: so basically what he';s trying to do here is send davout to the forum collections agency ?

14:20:30 davout: also, for the sake of keeping a public record, the script i used to explore the blockchain in order to try and find his deposit address, none of the two i was looking for appeared

14:20:31 fluffypony: yes

14:20:31 davout: http://pastie.org/private/zye2fhscut112d7m1m6ga

14:20:32 assbot: Private Paste - Pastie

14:20:58 mircea_popescu: davout do you have a service address ?

14:21:05 fluffypony: maybe he's hoping that by throwing enough of a tantrum davout will just throw money at him

14:21:27 davout: mircea_popescu: instawallet's former cold storage address -> 1FrtkNXastDoMAaorowys27AKQERxgmZjY

14:21:43 mircea_popescu: fluffypony generally i kinda like phinn, he's very diligent, quite passionate and an off the path sort of thinker

14:21:56 mircea_popescu: davout service address is a postal address where one receives service of process

14:21:58 mircea_popescu: such as supoenas

14:22:07 davout: paymium has one

14:22:13 mircea_popescu: alrighty.

14:22:24 fluffypony: mircea_popescu: yeah I'm talking purely about the way he's treating this particular issue, not in general

14:22:42 fluffypony: the constant stream of new threads doesn't play into his favour

14:23:01 davout: also, our server hard drives were given to law enforcement when we filed our complaint back in april 2013

14:23:05 mircea_popescu: davout so make a single post in that thread, containing paymium's service address, a statement that you've tried to the best of your ability to identify his claims but didn'

14:23:18 kakobrekla: someone mixed propositions for 4chan?

14:23:19 mircea_popescu: t so far manage to do so and a optionally a link to here to detail that.

14:23:29 fluffypony: kakobrekla: that's what I'm guessing

14:23:49 davout: in other words, it would simply be best if the guy sued

14:24:00 mircea_popescu: davout at this point.

14:24:04 fluffypony: agreed

14:24:17 mircea_popescu: there doesn't seem to be much room for any sort of mediation

14:24:23 fluffypony: once the body of evidence is presented his lawyer would (one hopes) be able to explain things to him

14:25:15 chetty: so basically he is claiming a deposit with no actual evidence he made it? Wonder if that would work with my bank?

14:25:26 fluffypony: chetty: I think so

14:25:50 fluffypony: give it a spin, let us know how it goes

14:26:02 mircea_popescu: fluffypony bank'll prolly just pay her.

14:26:05 mircea_popescu: what do they care.

14:26:18 davout: gotta get off, i'll be back later tonight if someone wants to discuss this further

14:26:23 fluffypony: davout: kk

14:26:40 mircea_popescu: i think it's discussed tbh.

14:27:52 mircea_popescu: ahahaha wahahahaha sardokan wins

14:28:23 mircea_popescu: I don't understand why phinnaeus would pay 400BTC for 50K$, but I can write the agreement with him and make the deal : Davout will send to trusted escrow 50K$ (in dollard or BTC) Phinnaeus will send to escrow 400 BTC when escrow have both, he will send me 400 BTC and send Phinnaeus is 50K$. I will then send 300 BTC to Davout. We will all waive the right to terminate this agreement and to all actions regarding the insta

14:28:24 mircea_popescu: wallet service.

14:30:21 pankkake: my experience of the forum is that there is no shortage of high profile delusional scammers, that of course don't think themselves as such

14:30:42 pankkake: but davout being a mod there, I don't trust him either!

14:31:08 fluffypony: he mods the French sub-forum, it's not exactly a position of power

14:31:28 Apocalyptic: it is to a certain extent

14:32:49 mircea_popescu: i dunno what to make of this personally. i kinda like phinn and all, but so far this claim of his is not going too far.

14:33:07 mircea_popescu: i don't doubt he had 1k or so btc at some point, and i don't doubt he genuinely lost it somehow.

14:33:11 mircea_popescu: now exactly how...

14:44:20 mircea_popescu: but yeah, originally it was all "o, how the bitcoiners don't understand basic socialism as canon accepted by everyone"

14:44:34 mircea_popescu: then it was "o the press in its quest for bullshit is betraying the holy canon of socialism"

14:45:00 mircea_popescu: by now it's sunk into the depths of pathetic : trying to get a thread going, which gets 6 pages out of which 2/3 is their kindling

16:52:26 Apocalyptic: mircea_popescu, the salmon looks really delicious, so far I knew how to cook a similar dish, without the wine and spice though

16:54:17 mircea_popescu: why without the wine and spice ?

16:54:29 mike_c: ;;seen unbalanced

16:54:30 mircea_popescu: but anyway, salmon isvery tolerant. you can eat it raw, you can eat it cooked to any degree

16:54:30 gribble: unbalanced was last seen in #bitcoin-assets 26 weeks, 0 days, 2 hours, 21 minutes, and 53 seconds ago: <unbalanced> Little Bitcoin icon on the package and everything

16:54:46 mircea_popescu: oft times ill just put it to fire for a few minutes and have it for breakfast

16:54:55 mircea_popescu: mike_c ya tell him to come over

16:55:02 mircea_popescu: i wanna congratulat him on his atc purchase

16:55:05 Apocalyptic: yeah, I often eat it raw

16:55:25 Apocalyptic: <mircea_popescu> why without the wine and spice ? // that's the way I learnt it

16:55:27 chetty: wine is not a usual ingredient of teriyaki

16:55:31 Apocalyptic: indeed

16:55:36 mircea_popescu: rice wine is, yes!

16:55:43 Apocalyptic: oh rice wine

16:55:48 mircea_popescu: well ?

16:55:55 chetty: rice wine vinegar

16:56:20 Apocalyptic: I don't make my own teriyaki, sadly

16:57:17 chetty: but to be fair he did say it was heretic version :) and sounds pretty good

16:57:47 mircea_popescu: balsamic + wine ~= rice wine + vinegar

16:57:54 asciilifeform: 'I realized that I?ve never touched a fax machine before?that it?s as abstract, for me, as the laser guns...' << clearly never dealt with usg. fax is mandatory to this day!

16:59:10 mircea_popescu: maybe had lawyers

17:00:26 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 5047 @ 0.00082466 = 4.1621 BTC [+]

17:01:06 asciilifeform: afaik usg contractors still submit invoices via fax.

17:05:31 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 3803 @ 0.00082466 = 3.1362 BTC [+]

17:11:37 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 31597 @ 0.00082955 = 26.2113 BTC [+]

17:11:37 mircea_popescu: Ok so here's a story : BitBet curently has 19 World Cup bets open. The average bet on these is .175 (excluding house and mpif), like so .79, .44, 0, .21, .60, .10, .54, .03, 0, 0, .01, 0, .05, .28, .01, .04, 0, .11, .11. Now, on top of these, there's no less than 30 bets pending approval on WC, pretty much "X country will advance from groups".

17:12:06 mircea_popescu: obviously mods wanted to consult. now, in the spirit of being in argentina and these people loving the wc, i ok'd the whole bulk

17:12:31 *: asciilifeform read backwards, parsed wc as watercloset

17:12:42 mircea_popescu: but, let me point out, this is pretty horrible business for bitbet, per se. and obviously, i'll be using this data to inform further decisions on what to accept.

17:13:20 mircea_popescu: so logically a) if you wonder later why your zeroconf sports bet got rejected by mods, the reason ios probably here and b) if you want to see sport bets on bitbet, this is a bad time to sit and watch and a great time to get involved.

17:16:52 mircea_popescu: obviously also a great time to affliate bitbet, but then again, i couldn't even find an affiliate manager at all

17:17:06 mircea_popescu: apparently everyone wants to sit on his ass and derp on reddit about things, nobody wants to work anymore

17:17:25 mircea_popescu: mike_c what's a manu ginobli

17:28:08 nubbins`: also, what's pacific salmon like? i've only ever had atlantic :(

17:28:28 nubbins`: except for that one time in japan, but that was a long time ago and also my first sushi experience

17:31:23 mircea_popescu: and an affiliate manager is a guy who knows a lot of affiliate marketeers who trust him.

17:31:36 *: nubbins` checks world map

17:31:49 *: asciilifeform only ever heard of 'affiliate marketeer' as euphemism for spammer

17:32:11 nubbins`: i swear i didn't confuse argentina with chile :(

17:33:11 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i don't even know what the state of the industry is anymore. 20 years ago you had the legitimate folk and then the dumb noobs pretending, much like in bitcoin

17:33:31 mircea_popescu: maybe in the meanwhile it died, i dunno. probable, judging by the fact that everyone i used to know back then is off the grid.

17:33:33 kakobrekla: ascii has it

17:33:46 asciilifeform: if it was once alive - now dead, replaced by scar tissue

17:33:53 mircea_popescu: i guess so. sad.

17:34:09 mircea_popescu: anyway, in 1994 a good affiliate could send you even 100k clicks which'd convert upwards of 10%

17:34:31 mircea_popescu: at an average sale of ~60, you do the math.

17:42:26 []bot: Bet created: "Switzerland will advance from the 2014 World Cup group stage" http://bitbet.us/bet/923/

17:42:30 mike_c: well, that's not quite true. you do keep one of the house bets.

17:42:33 kakobrekla: ditch the other categories.

17:43:08 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [SHA] 10 @ 0.042 = 0.42 BTC

17:43:19 mircea_popescu: mike_c a that's true. so i guess 5.

17:43:25 kakobrekla: new categories: difficulty, price action, stocks, arrests.

17:43:31 mircea_popescu: well guess what! in the past year there's exactly one sports bet that went over 5. you know which ?

17:43:39 mircea_popescu: the halep french open one

17:44:12 []bot: Bet created: "Ecuador will advance from the 2014 World Cup group stage" http://bitbet.us/bet/924/

17:44:35 mircea_popescu: kakobrekla definitely sports don't merit their own category im thinking.

17:44:51 []bot: Bet created: "Honduras will advance from the 2014 World Cup group stage" http://bitbet.us/bet/926/

17:45:00 kakobrekla: but it helps to keep that part separated from the good part

17:45:00 mircea_popescu: the way I figure it, if the wc set fails to attract 500 btc total pool, we'll just ditch sports as a category and mostly reject all proposed sports bet without zeroconf

17:45:27 []bot: Bet created: "Argentina will advance from the 2014 World Cup group stage" http://bitbet.us/bet/927/

17:45:28 mircea_popescu: just put em all in misc

17:45:54 asciilifeform: some reason i imagined sport bets were a 'major thing' (not for me personally, but for a mythical 'unwashed mass waiting to arise')

17:46:01 asciilifeform: turns out, no?

17:46:06 mircea_popescu: seems not.

17:46:15 mircea_popescu: unwashed masses wish to arise THOUGH WAITING

17:46:18 mircea_popescu: not through anythingelse.

17:46:20 *: asciilifeform recalls betting shop in Timis

17:46:24 kakobrekla: perhaps yea if its presented circle like

17:46:25 mircea_popescu: tlp actually has a good write-up for this

17:46:32 kakobrekla: or whatever its called

17:46:41 mircea_popescu: kakobrekla do me a favour, calculat ethe sum pool over the sports bets past 365 days

17:47:00 kakobrekla: kay

17:47:02 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform yes, but that's the same bitcents they do here

17:47:42 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: one hypothesis: the sports aficionados are... broke

17:47:58 mircea_popescu: maybe

17:48:00 mike_c: another: they aren't used to betting on games parimutuel style

17:48:03 []bot: Bet created: "Bosnia and Herzegovina will advance from the 2014 World Cup group stage" http://bitbet.us/bet/928/

17:48:23 los_pantalones: as a sports betting person myself

17:48:23 mircea_popescu: mike_c prolly a large factor also.

17:48:28 []bot: Bet created: "Iran will advance from the 2014 World Cup group stage" http://bitbet.us/bet/929/

17:48:32 los_pantalones: i can say the bitbet contracts don't really do it for me

17:48:42 los_pantalones: b/c i need a very last second bet

17:48:50 los_pantalones: and live betting during the event

17:48:53 []bot: Bet created: "Nigeria will advance from the 2014 World Cup group stage" http://bitbet.us/bet/930/

17:49:08 mircea_popescu: mike_c the other way to formulate this is, sports bettors are not motivated by the money. they expect specific sorts of services provided

17:49:12 mircea_popescu: for which bitbet is poorly fitted

17:49:28 los_pantalones: mircea_popescu like what ?

17:49:46 mircea_popescu: los_pantalones drinks, tits, streaming game, betting tips, a whole atmosphere such as it is

17:49:52 los_pantalones: nah nah, i do online

17:49:55 los_pantalones: i need in game

17:49:55 mircea_popescu: in exchange for which they don't mind -50% EV

17:50:06 los_pantalones: but i like trading vol

17:50:12 los_pantalones: it's not a prediction game

17:50:23 mircea_popescu: explain this trading vol thing

17:50:34 los_pantalones: we spoke briefly about this before, bitbet is well suited to get an accurate prediction

17:50:42 los_pantalones: did you ever use tradesports?

17:50:44 los_pantalones: back in the day

17:50:49 los_pantalones: all binary bets

17:50:51 mircea_popescu: i don't actually bet

17:50:54 los_pantalones: live before and during event

17:51:09 los_pantalones: let's say event is mp vs pnts trades 0 to 100

17:51:10 mircea_popescu: line style ?

17:51:16 los_pantalones: no

17:51:29 los_pantalones: you are pummeling me early, look fat and out of shape

17:51:33 mike_c: contract bets. with bids/asks.

17:51:34 los_pantalones: trades near 10

17:51:43 los_pantalones: i come back in the second round, look better

17:51:45 los_pantalones: moves to 20

17:51:51 los_pantalones: there is constant volume

17:51:58 los_pantalones: works really well in basketball

17:52:05 los_pantalones: big halftime lead, line moves too far to the edge

17:52:07 los_pantalones: just fade it

17:52:32 los_pantalones: there is vol in the expectation of the outcome of the event during the event, the price moves

17:52:38 los_pantalones: i enjoy that

17:52:44 los_pantalones: i hate the sportsbook type trading

17:52:53 los_pantalones: where you can only bet one side, so bitbet already better in that regard

17:53:19 los_pantalones: but still retains the fixed bet part

17:53:27 mircea_popescu: im not sure why you think what you're describing isn't already present on bitbet.

17:53:42 los_pantalones: when do the sports bets close?

17:53:52 mircea_popescu: at some point after the event/

17:54:06 mike_c: it doesn't have fixed odds

17:54:09 []bot: Bet created: "Germany will advance from the 2014 World Cup group stage" http://bitbet.us/bet/931/

17:54:34 mircea_popescu: los_pantalones let me translate what you just described in bitbet terms.

17:54:56 mircea_popescu: so, on 1st of month bet MP vs LP is made. game is set for 5th. bet closes on 7th.

17:54:59 []bot: Bet created: "Ghana will advance from the 2014 World Cup group stage" http://bitbet.us/bet/933/

17:55:03 los_pantalones: looking at bosnia will advance to group stage, the betting closes 23-06-2014, is that after the last potential match

17:55:16 mircea_popescu: at game start on 5th, weighted pots are 57k MP 33k LP

17:55:24 []bot: Bet created: "USA will advance from the 2014 World Cup group stage" http://bitbet.us/bet/934/

17:55:27 los_pantalones: ah, well, then i am absolutely wrong

17:55:31 mircea_popescu: and weight is whatever, 85k

17:55:35 los_pantalones: i was under the impression the bet closed before the event

17:55:39 los_pantalones: i will now promptly go bet

17:55:42 mircea_popescu: one hour later, weight being 84,500 you decide to buy more LP

17:55:52 mircea_popescu: pot moves 57k to 37k

17:55:55 mircea_popescu: so odds went from

17:55:57 mircea_popescu: ;;calc 57/33

17:55:58 gribble: 1.72727272727

17:55:58 mircea_popescu: to

17:56:10 gribble: 677.03615976

17:56:20 mircea_popescu: then you want to push the other way ? bet a little more on mp. so its now 58k to 37k

17:56:22 mircea_popescu: etc

17:56:37 los_pantalones: yes yes, i am a wrong here

17:56:39 los_pantalones: and here i go

17:56:41 los_pantalones: to place me bets

17:56:42 mircea_popescu: kakobrekla that can't be past year. it must be all time

17:56:53 mircea_popescu: los_pantalones which is why i need a bunch of fucking affiliates

20:17:42 fluffypony: BingoBoingo: I saw a great baseball play a few days ago - huge hit into outfield, outfielder duffs the catch (bounces off his glove), has this brief moment of confusion before running after it and lobbing it all the way back to home base, and the batter is run out. Now I can't find it. Jog any memories?

20:22:36 fluffypony: los_pantalones: tks

20:23:00 fluffypony: los_pantalones: that throw was insane, I couldn't believe the distance it covered, and it looked like such a lazy lob

20:33:26 assbot: Cardinals turn triple play with bases loaded

20:34:19 los_pantalones: only 2 things i enjoy about baseball...

20:34:22 los_pantalones: 1) yelling "BALK"

20:34:27 los_pantalones: 2) someone stealing home

20:34:52 BingoBoingo: Those are great things.

20:34:54 asciilifeform: what's 'balk'? like 'tilt' in pinball?

20:35:00 BingoBoingo: I also like fan interference

20:35:06 los_pantalones: if the pitcher starts to go into his pitching motion towards the plate

20:35:08 los_pantalones: but then stops

20:35:11 los_pantalones: and does anything elese

20:35:15 los_pantalones: runners advance

20:35:21 asciilifeform: false-start ?

20:35:24 BingoBoingo: Yeah

20:35:26 los_pantalones: it's the most subjective call in most sports

20:35:29 los_pantalones: one of*

20:35:47 BingoBoingo: All of the great completely subjective calls live in baseball

20:36:03 los_pantalones: you could call balk one out of every 3 pitches

20:36:11 los_pantalones: in my "pulled totally out of my ass" book of stats

20:36:40 Apocalyptic: los_pantalones, note that he can properly pull out of the pitching motion

20:36:50 Apocalyptic: then he's allowed to do whatever he wants

20:36:55 BingoBoingo: Delay of game is another one of those things called too infrequently. By the book the pitcher has 12 seconds to unload the ball

20:37:09 los_pantalones: i like yelling "Defensive 3 seconds" at bball games too

20:37:17 los_pantalones: i'm that horrible person that shouldn't be there in the 1st place

20:39:26 BingoBoingo: At least it isn't the traditional Philadelphia throwing of batteries.

20:43:54 BingoBoingo: The meta-game of trying to call Tommy Johns surgeries well in advance is also an interesting game.

22:20:17 mike_c: who wants to buy a spy house?

22:20:20 mike_c: http://www.usmarshals.gov/news/chron/2013/041213.htm

22:20:21 assbot: U.S. Marshals Selling Russian Spy House in New Jersey

22:21:12 mthreat: i'm not sure which is funner to look at, bitpremier or US Marshals

22:21:22 mircea_popescu: lol

22:22:35 mircea_popescu: The house is listed for sale at $444,900 through Fast Track Real Estate Co. of Waldwick, N.J. Built in 1950, the 1,830 square-foot house has four bedrooms, one and a half bathrooms, a recently-updated kitchen, a garage and an unfinished basement.

22:22:54 mircea_popescu: ill be damned if i pay half a million paperthings for something with "one and a half" bathrooms

22:23:20 mike_c: no no, you just pay $10k and live a life of indentured servitude to the bank.

22:23:41 Azelphur: I'm just imagining a bathroom with a half-cylinder toilet and 50% of a shower

22:24:01 mike_c: is this not a thing outside US? half-bath means no shower.

22:24:03 mircea_popescu: mike_c 4 bedrooms, that's what, between 6 and 12 people ?

22:24:18 mircea_popescu: mike_c all us baths are half baths to begin with

22:24:19 mircea_popescu: no bidet

22:24:27 mike_c: hehe

22:24:34 Azelphur: mike_c: never heard that in UK, also we generally have no bathrooms without a shower, usually it's the bath that gets dropped

22:25:02 mike_c: 4 bedrooms to me means: master bdrm (2 people), two kids room (2 people), and an office.

22:25:45 mircea_popescu: so it's 4 rooms basically.

22:26:03 mike_c: well, four walled off rooms with doors.

22:26:25 mike_c: then living room/dining room/kitchen/laundry room, etc.

22:26:40 mike_c: plus a basement! it's a steal.

22:26:46 mircea_popescu: i dun see it.

22:26:47 Apocalyptic: unfinished

22:27:11 mike_c: montclair is ritzy. pricey town.

22:28:31 mircea_popescu: what's so ritzy about it ? seems a dorm town like any other

22:28:43 mircea_popescu: does it have some world class cabaret i never heard of or something ?

22:29:18 mike_c: it's got old money. enormous mansions.

22:29:30 mircea_popescu: yes but what's that do for me ?

22:29:43 mike_c: you get to mow their lawns for money.

22:29:56 mike_c: plus the schools are good (comparatively), etc.

22:30:15 mircea_popescu: so basically this is a parent scam thing.

22:30:19 mike_c: yes

22:30:48 mike_c: parents and russian spies

22:30:51 mircea_popescu: "come live in this shitty house that's overpriced instead of underpriced as it should be, because you pay less-than-class for out-of-class items, always. just so you can imagine your kids get better education"

22:31:22 mircea_popescu: if people used the noggin, a 10k house in a neighbourhood with 30k average houses would sell for 9 not for 11

22:31:31 mircea_popescu: it can be 11 when it's in the 3k average neighbourhood

22:31:36 mircea_popescu: (and is, for that matter)

22:32:48 mike_c: here 10k house in 30k neighborhood sells for 25

22:33:00 mike_c: and 10k house in 3k neighborhood sells for 5

22:33:02 davout: mike_c: "you get to mow their lawns for money." <<< or feincoin

22:33:13 dub: here 10k hours in 30k hood sells for 90k

22:33:31 mircea_popescu: <mike_c> and 10k house in 3k neighborhood sells for 5 < no it doesn't

22:33:45 mircea_popescu: all the best-in-class mansions are overpriced for being best-in-class

22:34:49 mircea_popescu: you think the guy with the "largest house in north hollywood" is taking a discount because it's so big ?

22:34:56 mircea_popescu: he expects (and gets) a premium

23:31:15 mike_c: oh geez

23:31:19 TheNewDeal: found a good line in that "risk assessment"

23:31:21 TheNewDeal: I've not talked about Bitfinex since this isn't a sales pitch for them. I've not talked about how they offer leveraged margin trade as well as normal exchange. Nor have I talked about the p2p lending platform where people who don't want to trade can earn swap interest on USD or BTC balance. I've also not mentioned the 5 order types they have: limit

23:31:21 TheNewDeal: , market, stop, trailing stop, fill or kill; nor about the OCO orders or hidden orders. Bitfinex is truly way ahead of the curve.

23:31:24 mike_c: i was way off. even with my backup guess

23:32:01 davout: TheNewDeal: yeah, that was amazing

23:32:01 assbot: AMAZING COMPANY!

23:32:17 davout: fluffypony: fun fact, it's also run by a french dude

23:32:31 mike_c: my guess was that mpex picked up a new strategic investor.

23:32:40 mircea_popescu: what, unnanounced ?!

23:32:49 mike_c: well, unannounced yet!

23:32:51 mircea_popescu: not happening, that sort of thing. they come and line up when i say

23:32:55 mircea_popescu: not the fucking other way around.

23:33:05 mircea_popescu: gotta maintain marketplace discipline, as well as all know our own place in this world.

23:33:52 mircea_popescu: fluffypony he's also not mentioning the part where bitfinex is a scam ran by the marginally retarded on stolen code.

23:34:17 mircea_popescu: uh i mean TheNewDeal

23:47:28 mircea_popescu: so buy one sell the other logically

23:47:50 mike_c: can't sell either

23:47:59 mike_c: i can't create either one

23:48:29 mircea_popescu: bitch @davout, iirc he had some method

23:53:57 mike_c: right.

23:53:58 mircea_popescu: davout yes, because they're fuckwitted leeches and instead of helping grow btc they just try to leech it for fiat profit.

23:54:10 mircea_popescu: much like mtgox in its heyday.

23:54:35 nubbins`: ^

23:54:45 davout: i was understanding this a bit differently

23:54:49 kakobrekla: stamp is doing same.

23:54:57 mircea_popescu: sure.

23:55:24 mircea_popescu: davout i know. that's kinda how the mpex synthetics ruin the life of these people : they make understanding what's going on so much easier.

23:55:34 davout: the way i was understanding it was "investing in potato crops is betting against btc appreciation" or at least depreciation of btc relative to potato crops

23:56:03 mircea_popescu: right

23:56:36 mircea_popescu: mike_c also, this is a dilemma crafted for your shoesize. so, reits are bad right ? how about seits ? where s stands for ... shit i guess.

23:56:37 davout: right as in "you got it" or right as in "oh god, where do we start?"

23:56:42 mircea_popescu: "not even real" estate.

23:56:58 mircea_popescu: davout right as in what you say is true but it doesn't have much to do with the previous

23:57:04 mike_c: i will be interested to see how low you have to sell it to get buyers

23:57:26 mircea_popescu: i'm not incentivised to sell it too low, i don't need the liquidity.

23:57:36 mircea_popescu: it's sufficient for my strategic needs for it to be under par.

23:57:54 davout: for all you know they might be keeping fees in btc, no?

23:58:04 mircea_popescu: davout sure. so ?

23:58:39 davout: that'd imply a correlation between their value and the btc fiat rate

23:58:49 mircea_popescu: only to the most naive of perspectives.

23:59:12 mircea_popescu: obviously they're not cash-positive if they need 30mn now on top of the 10mn before and the 2.8mn before that or w/e it was.

23:59:12 mike_c: if they were profitable enough they wouldn't have taken investment..
