00:06:24 decimation: re: optical displays in jet fighters: http://hamptonroads.com/2015/01/navy-report-2014-super-hornet-crash-was-preventable

00:06:25 assbot: Navy report: 2014 Super Hornet crash was preventable | HamptonRoads.com | PilotOnline.com ... ( http://bit.ly/1IV5bXq )

00:06:55 decimation: "In one of the jets, a young pilot was flying his first training mission since becoming qualified to use a special helmet that projects key flight data - such as air speed, altitude, target range - onto his visor. The pilot, investigators learned later, hadn't gone through a recommended computer-based course before being cleared to fly with the visor-mounted display."

00:07:17 mircea_popescu: wait so it's not like magic ?

00:07:32 decimation: no, apparently it's is quite disorienting if not familiar

00:07:42 decimation: "Within 15 seconds, the jet had accelerated to more than 575 mph and was descending at a 70 degree angle. The pilot, while monitoring his visor-mounted display and doing his best to keep an eye on the other jet, had apparently lost track of his rate of descent."

00:09:03 mircea_popescu: myeah.

00:59:30 mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes: hey whose idea was it to prevent the network from relaying transactions outside of the context of blocks and was it really that good of an idea? << i think it's rudimentary spam control.

01:00:26 mircea_popescu: undata: davout: probably go, the bot I'm working with is in go << i bet you had no idea just how popular golang is, eh asciilifeform

01:01:17 Adlai: in go's defense... they have sane concurrency primitives, as opposed to pretty much everything else

01:01:43 mircea_popescu: "arbitrary access to transactions in the chain is not allowed to avoid having clients start to depend on nodes having full transaction indexes" << there has to be more to this story.

01:01:53 Adlai: aka "have i spammed http://www.usingcsp.com/ yet this year?"

01:01:54 assbot: Communicating Sequential Processes (CSP), by C. A. R. Hoare (Electronic Version) ... ( http://bit.ly/1ywctzs )

01:05:30 PeterL: xanthyos:i'd like to play monopoly with #b-a members if we could figure out a place to do the dice << scoopbot started as a bot to roll dice for me and my friend RPGing over IRC

01:06:27 BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> "arbitrary access to transactions in the chain is not allowed to avoid having clients start to depend on nodes having full transaction indexes" << there has to be more to this story << Prolly related to post 0.8.x versions not keeping a full txindex by default. Have to set a flag for them to do it.

01:06:43 mircea_popescu: actually... should i put in a job for a games bot ? could start it with monopoly. it just keeps dropping pngs of the table after each player's roll

01:07:24 mircea_popescu: trivial to do for chess, too. but kind-of spammy.

01:08:00 PeterL: would it live on #bitcoin-assets-games?

01:08:13 mircea_popescu: i guess that'd work well enough huh ?

01:08:49 PeterL: could you make a version of monopoly which allows people to drop in after the game has started?

01:09:36 mircea_popescu: something simple like playbot, i want to play chess with peterl. to which it responds "peterl are you playing with mircea_popescu ?" and then it looks for the moves, updates an inner state and keeps spitting out pngs of the board as links.

01:09:39 PeterL: actually, that sounds like a fun project

01:09:40 mircea_popescu: same principle with monopoly.

01:10:17 mircea_popescu: probably should have go, chinese chess, stuff.

01:10:22 mircea_popescu: maybe this already exists ?

01:12:49 PeterL: There are placed like yahoo games, I don't know of any text-based games

01:13:21 mircea_popescu: no i mean specifically irc bots

01:13:33 mircea_popescu: so you can just copy the code.

01:14:25 mircea_popescu: anyway, it could easily be self-financing, charge 0.0001 per player ro something.

01:19:22 xanthyos: oh monopoly doesn't just require dice rolls but chance and community chest card ordering

01:20:40 xanthyos: .0001 per player per entry, and with new players dropping in after the game already started it could have a cumulative prize pool

01:20:50 xanthyos: with rebuys

01:22:12 PeterL: maybe only allow people to koin until all properties sold?

01:30:49 PeterL: I was thinking more of something for us to have fun rather than trying to make money

01:31:15 thestringpuller: because game developers are starving artists :P

01:42:00 kakobrekla: i had fun once

01:42:46 Adlai: then the fire nation attacked?

02:47:39 ben_vulpes: <mircea_popescu> [] "arbitrary access to transactions in the chain is not allowed to avoid having clients start to depend on nodes having full transaction indexes" << there has to be more to this story. << pointless degradation of network protocol to reduce utility of bitcoin.

02:49:04 ben_vulpes: <PeterL> [] could you make a version of monopoly which allows people to drop in after the game has started? << bitcoin monopoly?!

02:49:42 mircea_popescu: well of course bitcoin monopoly.

02:50:03 mircea_popescu: and seeing how the guilty parties are not here present to defend themselves, i see little trouble going with your theory.

02:50:11 asciilifeform: Ritholtz link << astonishingly boring site

02:50:22 ben_vulpes: asciilifeform: industry gossip rag, whaddaya want

02:50:27 asciilifeform: i did figure out why it dug up my old article

02:50:55 asciilifeform: it is apparently being passed around by lamers, who did not even look at the date, as 'lol bitcoin users, maybe this will save them from certain sc4mz0r d00m'

02:51:34 mircea_popescu: heh

02:51:59 mircea_popescu: in his quest for easy lolz, the idiot robs himself of the good lolz.

03:36:59 BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: Seriously, the dramas

03:37:24 mircea_popescu: is this like that one time when the idiot murican journos threw a fit that the french president didn't care about whatever stupid shit they had picked to make their world out of, and then were never heard from again ?

03:37:43 mircea_popescu: what's linux going to do, name itself gavinus ?

03:37:53 mircea_popescu: "it's not new, it's the same thing!"

03:38:12 mircea_popescu: "we've just forked it because we're stupid. same thing!"

03:38:47 *: asciilifeform finds it somewhat odd that there is not yet an official 'rat king' (poettering?) to serve as an 'anti-linus'

03:39:01 BingoBoingo: Kinda, but with layers of stupid coming into conflict. A stupid schism.

03:40:17 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform no, they don't need a king you see. they're sans coulottes, they talk a lot, and that's all that's needed.

03:40:27 asciilifeform: lol!

03:40:32 mircea_popescu: well, that and changing all the he's to theirs.

03:41:23 mircea_popescu: the only pity here is that linus is about as political minded as your average frog, and so instead of taking up arms, booting all us interest from linux, strangling poettering by his own guts and so on,

03:41:28 mircea_popescu: he just sits there and ignores the matter.

03:41:48 *: asciilifeform recalls once reading that 'their' is 'obsolete,' and that the truly progressive (tm) types have made up new pronouns, 'ze', 've', fuck knows what els

03:41:51 mircea_popescu: very important to promote a lot more people who are actually willing to kill these idiots, not just ignore them.

03:45:47 asciilifeform: without getting out of usa personally, rather.

03:45:57 mircea_popescu: no such rider in my statement.

03:46:10 mircea_popescu: but, simply refusing to merge anything in any way related to anyone who ever worked for red hat.

03:46:10 asciilifeform: ahaha.

03:46:13 mircea_popescu: for instance.

03:46:30 asciilifeform: how much from rathead is even getting merged in kernel ?

03:46:50 mircea_popescu: not exactly the point. poltics is not about what you do.

03:46:51 decimation: redhat does quite a bit of backporting

03:47:04 mircea_popescu: there must attach penalties to belonging in the progressive camp.

03:47:13 decimation: they also have some kernel devs on the payroll

03:47:16 mircea_popescu: the simple knowledge that you will NEVER be a linux developer, ever, is a good start.

03:47:23 mircea_popescu: i can then move to give linux more weight, and so on.

03:47:35 asciilifeform: i suspect that linus does, in fact, understand that he 'can also have problems.'

03:47:45 mircea_popescu: not a criterion.

03:47:56 mircea_popescu: stalin could also have problems.

03:48:10 mircea_popescu: up until he couldn't anymore, at which point all sorts of other idiots had a whole troughful of problems.

03:48:22 mircea_popescu: now that's politics.

03:48:53 asciilifeform: decimation: would be interesting to see who contributes something other than drivers for own hardware.

03:49:03 mircea_popescu: red hat makes hardware ?!

03:49:06 decimation: good point, they don't break that out

03:49:21 asciilifeform: not redhat, but, say, renesas and analog devices

03:49:29 decimation: redhat does not make hardware, but they provide guarantees for certain baselines

03:49:33 asciilifeform: amd, freescale, fujitsu, etc.

03:49:47 mircea_popescu: point remains : once there's a penalty to being a progressive, things can be turned into some sort of shape.

03:50:01 decimation: So you can be Redhat Certified (c)

03:50:33 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: this almost certainly requires a dead usg, or at the very least one which is in no condition to sinecure progressives.

03:50:46 mircea_popescu: does not.

03:50:50 mircea_popescu: sinecure does not work.

03:51:02 asciilifeform: as it stands, the progressives want for nothing.

03:51:09 mircea_popescu: consider that the protestants choked the catholics, with a very lively french government that sinecured them to heaven.

03:51:14 mircea_popescu: sinecure is counterproductive if anything.

03:51:16 asciilifeform: their opponents, if too vocal and not independently wealthy - face starvation.

03:51:23 mircea_popescu: this is exactly their problem, that they want for nothing.

03:51:32 mircea_popescu: nothing easier to rape.

03:52:07 mircea_popescu: let the sinecure become a central point of the progressive - sane person debate.

03:52:12 mircea_popescu: that's already defeat, for them.

03:52:21 asciilifeform: is it not already the case ?

03:52:28 mircea_popescu: not amply enough.

03:52:35 decimation: the trouble is that nearly everyone in the us is one some dole or another

03:52:38 mircea_popescu: there's dire need for more politically minded people to make it a point.

03:53:02 mircea_popescu: decimation for as long as that lasts.

03:53:29 BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> stalin could also have problems. << Well Tito is a serious amount of problem to have.

03:53:49 mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo meant more in his odessa bank robbery days.

03:53:55 decimation: well, if 'making it not last' is the political strategy, then I suggest "stand back and watch them fail"

03:54:19 BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: Sure, but... never escaped his problem having potential

03:56:01 mircea_popescu: preferably from a distance.

03:56:46 decimation: after 1789, it was hoped that the new constitution would be well supported by 'moderates'

03:57:12 decimation: but it turned out that nobody who mattered was actually a moderate (in France)

03:57:30 mircea_popescu: no, it turned out the girondins were butchered first.

03:57:44 mircea_popescu: but that they mattered is preserved at least in the fact that their woman killed the journo.

03:58:15 mircea_popescu: had they had the sense to being moderate while out of france, and had they the internet & other means to do this... diff story.

04:00:18 decimation: it seems that some kind of similar thing is happening in us politics

04:01:09 mircea_popescu: if it is i dun see it

04:01:22 *: asciilifeform very much not seeing it

04:01:49 mircea_popescu: now everyone's wearing bras and marring their cat.

04:02:19 decimation: that's because the right and left have politically stalemated

04:02:42 decimation: there's no policy that can change because there's no moderate party to support it

04:02:59 mircea_popescu: well... no. it's because everyone lives off crown benefits, and so no substantial differences to be had.

04:03:04 mircea_popescu: everyone agrees they need more money.

04:03:39 decimation: but that's usg policy since at least before wwii

04:03:51 mircea_popescu: country's not had a budget in what, like a decade ?

04:03:59 mircea_popescu: not a balanced budget mind you. just, you know, one at all.

04:51:56 decimation: lol let the beatings commence

04:52:08 mircea_popescu: anyway, the guy has a point , and that point is : the expectations of us citizens, and their self valuations, are wildly divergent from reality.

04:52:17 mircea_popescu: they will have to be brought back on their knees somehow

04:52:32 asciilifeform: wait, they expect something ?

04:52:34 mircea_popescu: and no government yet has had the audacity to go to a group of self impressed idiots and tell them the sort of thing i say

04:52:40 mircea_popescu: "shut the fuck up, get on your knees and suck more cock"

04:52:48 mircea_popescu: consequently, inflation is necessary and unavoidable.

04:53:01 mircea_popescu: it's roughly the "put pitbull in doorframe and slam door on him" educational tactic.

04:53:29 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform yes. for instance : they expect to not have to find someone to be the sex slave of.

04:53:36 mircea_popescu: further : they expect to warm their abode artificially.

04:53:52 mircea_popescu: further still : they expect to not have to do hard physical labour.

04:53:54 mircea_popescu: and on it goes.

04:54:03 mircea_popescu: none of these are warranted. not really.

04:54:04 asciilifeform: even expect not to ferment as biodiesel, if you believe.

04:54:16 mircea_popescu: that one i can see.

04:54:17 *: asciilifeform does expect, however

04:54:29 mircea_popescu: human biodiesel is actually uneconomical.

04:54:36 mircea_popescu: do the math, of what's the cost per calorie to fatten a woman

04:54:40 asciilifeform: very economical in the broad sense (sealed mine)

04:54:44 mircea_popescu: then see what you could get, per calorie, as biodiesel.

04:54:50 asciilifeform: but you, the farmer, did not fatten her

04:54:53 asciilifeform: she fattened 'free range.'

04:54:56 mircea_popescu: so then i stole her ?

04:55:00 asciilifeform: hunted.

04:55:04 mircea_popescu: mno. economics is a science of closed systems.

04:55:21 asciilifeform: what are mineral resources then.

04:55:33 mircea_popescu: this is why i am not in principle opposed to ecology.

04:55:36 decimation: I thought the point of the biodiesiel was to encourage the others

04:55:38 mircea_popescu: just to the idiotic parts thereof.

04:55:39 asciilifeform: pretty much the whole shebang runs on exquisitely non-renewable stuff

04:55:48 mircea_popescu: decimation then it's necessarily fractionary.

04:56:28 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform this is a good objection. which is why i'm not fixated on ecology.

04:57:14 asciilifeform: nobody but chromosomally damaged midwestern usians imagines that closed cycle biodiesel is +ev. but it remains that something will have to be done with the... biomass.

04:57:27 decimation: fractionary << yes, ferment one, educate 1000 (at the fuel pump!)

04:58:24 mircea_popescu: decimation but then you'ver just shown why they'd rightfully not expect to be biodisel'd. 1 in 1000 shot.

04:58:36 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform sure, as an one off thing.

04:58:46 asciilifeform: although there are interesting 'demo' cases. i once saw a set of photographs of a 'work of art' - a small coffee table, with a bioreactor. a lure of some electronic kind (acoustic?) led mice up a hollow leg and into the reactor. there, they would ferment, and charge a battery that would run the next iteration of the mouse-lift-zap-ferment cycle.

04:58:58 asciilifeform: it was, in fact, a basic toy chumpatron. the inspiration for my article re: same.

04:59:26 mircea_popescu: yes but simply making solar panels the same size or price would yield more.

But they never say, although they know it, that I have labored in the cause of religion at the same time and all the time, and have sent missionaries there (of a "convenient stripe," as they phrase it), to teach them the error of their ways and bring them to Him who is all mercy and

05:31:30 mircea_popescu: love, and who is the sleepless guardian and friend of all who suffer. They tell only what is against me, they will not tell what is in my favor.

05:31:31 mircea_popescu: They tell how England required of me a Commission of Inquiry into Congo atrocities, and how, to quiet that meddling country, with its disagreeable Congo Reform Association, made up of earls and bishops and John Morleys and university grandees and other dudes, more interested in other people's business than their own, I appointed it. Did it stop their mouths? No, they merely pointed out that it was a commission composed

05:31:36 mircea_popescu: wholly of my "Congo butchers," "the very men whose acts were to be inquired into."

05:31:45 mircea_popescu: turns out the first gaddafi was actually the king of belgium

05:34:35 asciilifeform: aha.

05:34:41 mircea_popescu: and so kept telling the women about how politics should "properly" be set by old men around pulpits.

05:34:51 mircea_popescu: in a singular fit of stupidity, women went for it.

05:36:40 mircea_popescu: anyway, the 'kick the beast till it bites, then shoot it' observation is valid. i propose the solution is for the beast to threaten indefinitely.

But don't you think that in the evolution of society the constitution of such a criminal court is a necessity?"

07:30:17 mircea_popescu: "It would be a great convenience at present," said Mr. Harris; "nor would you need one atom of evidence beyond the report of the Commission to justify the hanging of whoever is responsible for the existence and continuance of such abominations."

07:38:23 mircea_popescu: " These online scammers extensively preyed on my trusting nature. I was mailed a "secure, verified" check for $2750 that I deposited into my account and was promptly tricked into sending almost all of this money to "the toy shop owner" so that he could ship the toys. "

07:38:23 mircea_popescu: eh.

07:38:57 Vexual: cost me $5

07:39:24 mircea_popescu: "Before all of this mess we were already financially struggling. To say that we were living paycheck-to-paycheck is an understatment. My boyfriend is currently underemployed and in school. I gave up 90% of the hours at my job in order to take this fake nanny job. I tried to explain all of this to the credit union but they were very callous with us saying that our priority needed to be on finding better paying jobs so

07:39:24 mircea_popescu: that we could pay off this debt. "

07:39:25 mircea_popescu: duh.,

07:39:28 mircea_popescu: callous eh ?

07:39:33 mats: heh.

07:39:53 Vexual: why bitcoin is better than a bank cheque

07:40:19 mircea_popescu: that's what i'd like. for all retail establishments to get a pillory per 1mn yearly custom. then do some customer support in the form of, if you piss anyone off while on the premises, 10 minutes' flogging.

07:40:46 mircea_popescu: and if you forget to thank the nice whipperperson for your lesson, 10 more.

07:40:58 mats: my grandmother got a phone call from 'a police sergeant' saying i was in county prison and needed to be bailed out before being inevitably deflowered

07:41:02 mircea_popescu: ". I asked if there were any resources to help us and they declined to mention even one. This was despite my protests that we currently do not even have enough money for rent and food.

07:41:03 mircea_popescu: In an attempt to restore our faith in humanity"

07:41:21 mircea_popescu: "humanity" owes them. because 'humanity' is daddy and daddy always paid whatever bottles they broke.

07:41:21 mats: she sent $2k via WU without even calling me.

07:41:41 mircea_popescu: wow spanish prisoner trick ?!

16:32:02 davout: mircea_popescu: there is this auxillary proof of work notion, "Not to be confused with the "previous block".

16:33:04 BingoBoingo: ess gavincoin is also hardforking to allow AuxPOW

16:33:17 davout: bertani: because if you need one of the chains to be somehow aware of the merge mining you'd need a second hardfork after the first block size related hardfork

16:33:41 mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo at the point prior to forking, the only difference between the two is version.

16:33:53 davout: well, maybe if we sell it to reddit as an opportunity to increase adoption ...

16:33:57 mircea_popescu: putting out blocks with both versions isn't actually putting out different blocks is it ?

16:34:42 BingoBoingo: Well, it is once the chains require different blocks because they've forked...

16:34:47 davout: the version is part of the header, so the solution for one header doesn't work for the other

16:34:48 mircea_popescu: i guess this "merge mining' business needs moar looking into.

16:35:14 kakobrekla: bitcoin merged mined with bitcoin is bad idea.

16:35:19 davout: i don't think the way you propose to use merge mining actually works

16:35:27 davout: or i mean, is actually feasible

16:36:58 mircea_popescu: hm. turns out i don't actually understand what merged mining actually is.

16:37:18 mircea_popescu: i had thought different chains had to be forked to mm because of their different origin. but that's not what happens in merged mining at all.

16:37:40 mircea_popescu: what happens is that a hash of a block of the lower chain is inserted in bitcoin blocks, and then the lower chain accepts this as "just as good" proof.

16:37:53 mircea_popescu: better ways to ruin scamcoins than merge-mine them doth not exist huh.

16:42:15 mircea_popescu: check out dooglus (who isn't a gavin-approved economist, in spite of being exactly as certified&educated in the topic as the random idiots a la Oleg Andreev et all) explaining economics :

16:42:38 mircea_popescu: At any given time there is a certain amount of demand for a Bitcoin like currency to make transactions. That need doesn?t increase with more competition. That means that the transactional demand for Bitcoin is really the same as the transactional demand for all substantially similar forms of payment. As more currencies are competing to fill the same demand they actually reduce the demand for the other currencies as t

16:42:38 mircea_popescu: hey become more widely used.

16:42:38 mircea_popescu: This means that ultimately, to the extent that currencies are interchangeable to end users, merged mining does not increase the overall security of the networks. The demand for currencies drives the price (and thus the value of the reward). Increased demand for any given currency results in decreased demand for others, lowering the incentive to mine for the other currencies. The total incentive is a function of total d

16:42:43 mircea_popescu: emand for all Bitcoin like currencies.

16:42:45 mircea_popescu: Except now competing currencies can market themselves as ?as secure as Bitcoin but with lower transaction fees.? In other words there is a race to the bottom among competing currencies to offer the lowest transaction fees, because lowering the transaction fee doesn?t hurt the security of the network in comparison to the other merged mining networks. Users, following their own self interest, will adopt the currenc

16:42:46 davout: so, if i understand correctly, the way this thing works is that it attracts moar miners through the bonus mechanism, which in turn contributes to killing-off gavincoin amirite

16:42:50 mircea_popescu: y with the lowest transaction fees as long as it has the same security of the competitors.

16:42:52 mircea_popescu: This will increase the price of the currency with the lowest transaction fee (because demand for the currency is higher), and decrease the price of the currencies with higher transactions fees (because demand for those currencies is dropping as it is being filled by demand for the competing currency). Because the currencies with the higher transaction fees were the ones generating the incentive to mine, overall incenti

16:42:57 mircea_popescu: ve to mine will diminish. As long as a currency?s mining is merged with the freeloading currency, it will be powerless to increase incentives by imposing mandatory transaction fees.

16:43:00 mircea_popescu: The result will be a decrease in mining incentive, a decrease in mining, and ultimately all networks that allow merged mining will become insecure.

17:03:17 mircea_popescu: the principal utility of this thing is to guarantee the general public the ability to split its coins on the two chains

17:04:47 davout: so if i understand correctly, the main characteristic you want for this pool, is that it prioritizes double-spends of already-confirmed gavincoins when picking which txes to put in its blocks

17:05:09 mircea_popescu: something like that

17:05:44 mircea_popescu: actually you're right huh, it doesn't need to be trustless and that "send to pool" step is gunk.

17:06:02 mircea_popescu: it *could* just look for dblspent txs that made it on gavinchain and prioritize them

17:06:22 davout: yep

17:06:23 mircea_popescu: course, this is not actually needed either. miners already do that, in that they look for high tx fee txn

17:06:54 mircea_popescu: maybe this entire pool thing actually just needs to be a website to generate raw tx for people to put in bitcoind

17:07:09 mircea_popescu: like a graphics aid.

17:08:07 mircea_popescu: im not happy with waiting the 200 blocks for the scamcoins to mature.

17:08:25 mircea_popescu: that sort of latency means you'll be a late comer to the "sell it into the dirt" party.

17:08:32 davout: since eligius pays directly from the coinbase you're guaranteed to receive a payout that's spendable on one chain but not on the other

17:10:37 davout: if he's lucky it'll overflow back to some positive rating :D

17:11:02 BingoBoingo: depends on how big total rating maxint is

17:13:23 kakobrekla: it goes up to 11

17:13:28 BingoBoingo: If he wants to debate this he can do it in a public channel. Given he has fabricated allegations before I want to make it unambiguously clear that I will not engage him privately.

17:13:32 BingoBoingo: Too high risk.

17:13:51 davout: BingoBoingo: what's the risk? some derp negrating you?

17:14:10 BingoBoingo: davout: Some Derp fabricating a scam and negrating me.

17:14:23 BingoBoingo: He's already negrated me. Nothing to lose there.

17:22:52 *: BingoBoingo thinks this could have been a perfect use of deedbot

17:23:17 BingoBoingo: For the much stronger timestamping

17:23:22 danielpbarron: BingoBoingo, you are setting a v.nice standard for this sort of situation

17:23:50 BingoBoingo: danielpbarron: I've always had this standard ready. There was jsut never a situation for it.

17:24:11 davout: BingoBoingo: you can already timestamp some stuff and get deedbot to accept it later as previously timestamped, that is, if the bundle structure is already defined

17:24:47 thestringpuller: davout: could you elaborate further?

17:24:51 BingoBoingo: davout: But why should we remain barbarians defining time as UTC when we can define it in terms of Block height?

17:25:11 ben_vulpes: good morning, jihadis

17:25:24 mircea_popescu: may allah's 40 cunts be upon you, ben

17:25:28 ben_vulpes: without reading any scrollback i agree with BB

17:25:43 mircea_popescu: davout how'd thatwork ?

17:25:44 ben_vulpes: only 40?!

17:25:44 ben_vulpes: scam

17:25:47 BingoBoingo: ben_vulpes: Oh, but such good drama this morning

17:25:55 davout: you can just sha256 your content, make an address out of that, send a bitcent there, and since that's how deedbot is supposed to work, you get your stuff deedbot-timestamped before deedbot even exists

17:26:45 BingoBoingo: But part of the deedbot appeal is also hosting the deeds as a stronger pastebin/dpaste alternative.

17:26:51 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 9600 @ 0.00049167 = 4.72 BTC [+]

17:27:18 mircea_popescu: davout sure. so ?

17:27:54 davout: BingoBoingo: sure, but if your timestamping respects deedbot's spec just get it included along

17:27:55 mircea_popescu: it won't show up on its website, but supposedly you dun care

17:28:00 mircea_popescu: well no

17:28:35 BingoBoingo: !up bitstein

17:28:46 davout: what matters is the way it works, not the specific implementation that actually works the way it is specified, just my 2 bitcents anyway

17:29:13 mircea_popescu: people should be able to sign independently of the notary, and should be able to mock its formality, sure.

17:30:39 davout: the notary doesn't sign does it?

17:30:51 mircea_popescu: nop

17:31:09 davout: the way i saw it was that it'd just be a manually-made lord-signed deed, rather than one compiled by an IRC bot

17:31:24 mircea_popescu: right

17:31:48 mircea_popescu: unwitnessed, as it were.

17:31:55 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 37205 @ 0.00047812 = 17.7885 BTC [-] {2}

17:32:01 Apocalyptic: davout sounds right, deedbot can verify a payment was made to that address and hence include it retrospectively

17:32:16 mircea_popescu: no.

17:32:21 davout: well, blockchain is the witness here, or am i missing sthg?

17:32:25 mircea_popescu: yes, you are.

17:32:40 mircea_popescu: if you come hither with a signed statement saying "the coin will fall tails" i won't particularly care

17:32:54 mircea_popescu: because for all i know you signed a "coin will fall heads" statement too and aren't sharing that one.

17:33:06 Apocalyptic: aha, I get it

17:33:08 mircea_popescu: the notary keeps a list of all the items it was sent a certain way.

17:33:25 mircea_popescu: you're free to sign whatever matter a similar way, but it won't be thus notarized. it will just be your own mock-up of the process.

17:33:32 mircea_popescu: which is fine, but as far as i see toothless.

17:33:53 davout: well, in that case it doesn't really make sense to me that the notary doesn't GPG-sign

17:33:55 Apocalyptic: the content has to be made public and witnessed by others at the time it's timestamped

17:34:21 mircea_popescu: it does make sense. because the trust does not derive from a robotic application of a gpg seal.

17:34:53 mircea_popescu: anyway, i got a meeting, we'll have to continue this debte in a few hours.

17:34:55 davout: more from the fact that folks you trust are looking at deeds being timestamped

17:35:16 davout: amirite

17:36:39 davout: also there was another thing regarding deedbot, if all deeds are simply concatenated before being hashed into a bitcoin private key, that means anyone watching the process taking place can deduce the bitcoin private key that's going to be generated, and claim the coins that'll be sent there

17:36:59 ben_vulpes: that's a feature, davout

17:37:36 BingoBoingo: !up Zarathul

17:37:46 davout: ben_vulpes: you might just as well spend that back to deedbot's wallet by broadcasting a second transaction at the same time

17:49:37 ben_vulpes: davout: talk to the specwriter, but i believe the thing acts as a btc spigot so as to incentivize auditing of its behavior.

17:53:54 mats: whos getting out of bed for 0.0001btc?

17:55:43 davout: mats: lol, a bot

17:56:45 davout: not that i see this as a design flaw or somesuch, jsut

17:57:10 davout: just wondering if there was a specific reason it wasn't mentioned in the spec

17:57:15 ben_vulpes: 0.001 btc is a pizza today, and a nuke sub in five decades

17:58:06 ben_vulpes: (or two centuries. pick your timeframe).

17:58:27 davout: if there's actually one deed bundle per hour that'll amount to

17:58:34 davout: ;;calc 0.0001*24*365

17:58:35 gribble: 0.876

17:58:45 davout: hah

17:58:45 undata: davout: that occurred to me as well

17:58:48 ben_vulpes: not bad for running a bot

17:58:51 mats: ;;calc .001*[ticker --last]

17:58:55 gribble: 0.21289

17:59:06 undata: I was also wondering whether one might want to salt the generated private key somehow so it's harder to guess

17:59:10 mats: hardly a pizza

17:59:11 davout: mats: you need an extra 0

17:59:27 davout: undata: yep, my thought too

17:59:49 davout: but if it's really like 1btc/year worst case you might as well consider it as burned

18:00:09 Apocalyptic: undata, ? the purpose is that everyone can hash the bundle and verify the address indeed matches

18:00:34 undata: Apocalyptic: yeah, that ruins that without later revealing the salt

18:00:40 davout: Apocalyptic: the idea is to reveal the salt, but only after the bitcoin has been claimed back from the bundle-related addy, not keep it secret forever

18:00:40 ben_vulpes: mats: "pizza", "chump change" you pedantic nerd

18:00:41 undata: the two transations thing seems fine

18:01:04 Apocalyptic: davout, claimed back by whom ?

18:01:05 davout: mats: 1000 btc used to also be hardly a pizza

18:01:16 davout: Apocalyptic: by deedbot

18:01:27 undata: davout: you could just wait to upload after the second transaction confirms

18:01:30 Apocalyptic: afaik ben_vulpes is correct, it's a feature that icentivies 3rd parties to verify

18:01:46 Apocalyptic: so you would not want deedbot to take it back

18:01:55 davout: ^ that sounds like something good

18:01:56 ben_vulpes: mats: do you not get the pizza reference?

18:02:03 undata: Apocalyptic: ah

18:02:38 davout: if someone pops in here one day and says "o i can't pick up deedbot's crumbs anymore" you have a problem somewhere

20:29:23 BingoBoingo: I've just assumed until it sorts out that rating twice is generally the best practice for most ratings

20:29:29 TomServo: mircea_popescu: Things seemed to be getting messy with the drama earlier. Having to rate in two places.

20:30:07 mircea_popescu: well obv that's optional. as the wot decentralizes, one can be part of as many / all of them.

20:30:52 mircea_popescu: that they talk to each other is a convenience, and i guess best practice, but not really a necessity.

20:31:55 mircea_popescu: actually i guess it depends on teh wisdom / celerity of teh admins currently involved if the future will hold it as best practice or just you know, that thing that might have been useful but never took off.

20:33:09 BingoBoingo: Sure. I for example entered the Rozal rating on both WoTs because the information is immidiately useful to both #bitcoin-assets as lulz material and #bitcoin-otc as a leper's bell around the person's neck.

20:34:03 mircea_popescu: makes sense
