00:12:46 ben_vulpes: does anyone in la serenissima have a copy of the bitcoin repository of june 2012 vintage?

00:15:34 cazalla: http://qntra.net/2014/10/independent-reserve-becomes-australias-latest-bitcoin-exchange/

00:15:35 assbot: Independent Reserve Becomes Australia's Latest Bitcoin Exchange | Qntra.net

00:17:30 mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes http://sourceforge.net/projects/bitcoin/files/Bitcoin/bitcoin-0.5.3/ etc.

00:17:30 assbot: Page not found - SourceForge.net

00:17:34 mircea_popescu: eh ?!

00:17:39 mircea_popescu: bwahahaha

00:18:03 ben_vulpes: all i have is the github repo

00:18:21 mircea_popescu: !up TheKingOfCPU

00:18:25 TheKingOfCPU: hi

00:18:56 TheKingOfCPU: hi everyone

00:18:58 TheKingOfCPU: =)

00:19:21 mircea_popescu: ello.

00:19:23 ben_vulpes: salad

00:19:57 mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes https://codeload.github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/legacy.tar.gz/v0.7.1 << there

00:20:11 mircea_popescu: https://codeload.github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/legacy.tar.gz/v0.6.3 etc

00:20:41 ben_vulpes: ya got it

00:21:56 mike_c: should the news have as much of a slant as a blog post?

00:22:17 mike_c: or, to rephrase. a news article shouldn't have as much of a slant as a blog post.

00:22:19 ben_vulpes: "news" is all slant

00:22:53 mike_c: all communication has a slant. a news article should strive to have less than a blogger.

00:23:18 cazalla: mike_c which article

00:23:43 mike_c: i don't mean to poop on pete, but his is the one i just read.

00:24:08 cazalla: it is listed under commentary

00:24:38 mike_c: ok, that is good. but that is also news i would like to have.

00:25:03 mircea_popescu: mike_c be specific ?

00:25:06 mike_c: generally the editorial that is slanted is not the only source of news on the topic.

00:25:10 mircea_popescu: (i've not read it)

00:25:28 mike_c: " the world's largest banks gathered together to hold hands and sing kumbaya in the hope that Bitcoin would be gentle"

00:25:49 TheKingOfCPU: is maynous an instrument?

00:25:58 mike_c: nothing wrong with this in a commentary, but I would also like to be able to read the un-slanted version.

00:26:03 mircea_popescu: yeah hardly news this.

00:26:18 TheKingOfCPU: is maynous an instrument?

00:26:18 kakobrekla: should be pythra instead qntra

00:26:37 mircea_popescu: !down TheKingOfCPU

00:26:37 cazalla: mike_c, which pete linked to but it's a commentary and as news alone, i don't think anyone cares what someone said regarding bitcoin so it could only be commentary on qntra

00:27:25 mircea_popescu: cazalla no but he has a point, what kumbaya.

00:31:26 BingoBoingo: I hit publish on Pete's piece, in the Commentary category not the news category.

00:31:46 cazalla: usurper!

00:31:56 mircea_popescu: lol

00:32:06 BingoBoingo: My bad

00:32:38 mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo you know ther's really no diff the site makes. if commentary went to a special page you had to click for then i see it

00:32:44 mircea_popescu: but as is, it's all the same thing, aka news.

00:32:59 cazalla: this independent reserve mob are on irc apparently, just wrong network and channel

00:33:15 asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: Who ever said anything about bunker having meat << if the universe favoured defenders of castles, rather than attackers, bitcoin would not be necessary

00:33:26 asciilifeform: the 'martian bank' could be a literal martian bank.

00:33:29 mircea_popescu: anyway, guy's prose is rather florid, but there IS a news bit in there.

00:33:42 BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Well what protected the Wasp's bag?

00:33:53 mircea_popescu: cazalla where ?

00:33:59 BingoBoingo: Why can't a datacenter be protected similarly?

00:34:00 asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: until destroyed - obscurity

00:34:14 cazalla: irc.oz.org #ir but i've invited them here

00:34:41 BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: And maybe people learn not to visit datacenters uninvited...

00:35:07 asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: cut pipe from safe distance.

00:35:34 BingoBoingo: Safe distance is a mystery though...

00:35:57 mircea_popescu: cazalla good idea.

00:36:11 asciilifeform: a datacenter that can't be diddled from a safe distance is also called 'a nuclear power'

00:37:00 BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Nothing I said contradicts that conclusion. At $900k/BTC a lot of things become possibilities

00:38:07 *: asciilifeform addresses the worms who people his future grave 'eh boys, you'll be lighting benjies with lit benjies'

00:51:27 mircea_popescu: nono, varnish the web cache

00:51:56 asciilifeform: varnish - lives on transformers.

00:54:26 ben_vulpes: varnish is okay

00:55:02 ben_vulpes: so: isStandard() - this is not related to blockchain and transaction processing rules, correct?

00:55:52 ben_vulpes: no it's totally in the transaction processing rules

00:55:58 ben_vulpes: if 0.9 says "this txn sucks!" but an 0.6 miner included it, this takes us right to a hard fork

00:56:11 ben_vulpes: if an 0.9 *node*...

00:57:46 danielpbarron: what is it with people pronouncing '0' as 'oh'?

00:58:09 ben_vulpes: syllabic efficiency

00:58:25 danielpbarron: "an zero" sounds strange

00:58:38 ben_vulpes: wouldn't it be "a zero"?

00:58:54 ben_vulpes: ah hue

00:58:58 ben_vulpes: i'm retarded, it's fine

00:59:31 danielpbarron: well no; not if you pronounce it "an oh point nine"

00:59:42 ben_vulpes: i'd probably say "oh nine", but i should write "a 0.9..."

00:59:52 ben_vulpes: and i never say the decimal

00:59:58 ben_vulpes: "oh nine three"

01:00:43 danielpbarron: "zero point nine point three"

01:01:46 ben_vulpes: i'm sure it matters to someone

01:05:39 bounce: ``In August 2012 we first announced that we would downrank sites for which we received a large number of valid DMCA notices.'' -- they get flooded with bot-generated "DMCA notices". what do they do to make sure they're "valid"? looking at youtube, not that much.

01:07:51 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 7606 @ 0.00073798 = 5.6131 BTC [-]

01:09:57 mircea_popescu: <ben_vulpes> if 0.9 says "this txn sucks!" but an 0.6 miner included it, this takes us right to a hard fork << yep

01:10:11 mircea_popescu: and an incurable one, at that.

01:11:07 mircea_popescu: this was the mechanism of the previous hard fork : .8 miners included tx rejected by the network, moved on a different chain.

01:11:38 mircea_popescu: !up AdamIR

01:12:50 cazalla: mircea_popescu, that's Adam Tepper from that new aussie exchange

01:13:19 mircea_popescu: is this the thing with the bitfury buys ?

01:13:28 cazalla: no, that's digitalBTC

01:13:51 mircea_popescu: ah independent reserve, kay.

01:13:54 AdamIR: http://www.independentreserve is our site.

01:14:01 AdamIR: Thanks for the invitation and introduction cazalla.

01:14:13 AdamIR: http://www.independentreserve.com rather.

01:14:16 assbot: Independent Reserve - The Bitcoin Market

01:14:39 mircea_popescu: AdamIR get in the wot. actually why aren';t you in there already ?

01:16:50 undata: http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2014/10/20/secret-service-fbi-hack-cybersecuurity/17615029/

01:16:50 assbot: Officials warn 500 million financial records hacked

01:17:00 undata: << "Our government and our businesses are in a daily fight against hackers," Pawlenty said. "It's getting increasingly concerning, and it needs to be met with action by Congress." >>

01:17:12 undata: oh good, more legislation

01:17:18 AdamIR: mircea_popescu - I joined #bitcoin-otc. Will have a look in more detail later, thanks.

01:17:23 mircea_popescu: cazalla i imagine these should really be all massed into one weekly post or something. X, Y and Z opened. K L and M closed."

01:17:24 asciilifeform: microshit still not razed and employees not publicly impaled, news at 11.

01:17:26 mircea_popescu: maybe even have a dead pool

01:17:48 kakobrekla: AdamIR you dont want to be there.

01:17:54 undata: asciilifeform: they're going to make hacking even more illegal; you'll see!

01:18:12 mircea_popescu: <undata> oh good, more legislation << asciilifeform has it. "everyone ever worked for microsoft, one year in prison per year worked, plus one year in prison per 100k in salary ever received. sentences over 20 years commuted to death."

01:18:23 AdamIR: kakobrekla - just having a look what it's all about.

01:18:32 mircea_popescu: everyone OTHER than ms has a year to either discontinue their business or fix it.

01:18:37 mircea_popescu: check out the sudden security everywhere

01:19:13 cazalla: mircea_popescu, that's an idea, i like to cover them just so i know if/when they close i have something to refer back to if they change their story at that point

01:19:16 mircea_popescu: AdamIRAway ok, so when you say last mover advantage/having studied what others did worng, what specifically do you mean ?

01:19:37 asciilifeform: 'One Romanian hacker was lured to Boston by Secret Service Special Agent Matt O'Neill, who used the Internet to pose as a woman and invite the cybercriminal on a trip to the USA to enjoy gambling and romance. "He was quite surprised that I was the one meeting him when he arrived," said O'Neill, who worked on the case for months.' << lol, is anyone actually this stupid? even sp4mz0rs?

01:19:39 mircea_popescu: cazalla yeah, i feel you. but should really be one paragraph at best. just the details.

01:19:49 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform yes.

01:20:36 AdamIRAway: mircea_popescu... there's a number of things we do right, particularly compared with others in the Australia-Pacific region.

01:20:45 mircea_popescu: AdamIRAway the idea was for specificity.

01:20:57 AdamIRAway: Yes... typing...

01:21:00 mircea_popescu: no rush.

01:21:30 AdamIRAway: I realise some other exchanges do some of these things, but some of the ways I think that Independent Reserve is ahead of a lot of our competition is...

01:23:12 AdamIRAway: 1. Rather than rely on a technology/IT focused team (which is my own background), we brought onboard a lot of the executive team and investors with FX Markets, Investment Banking and Finance background, which I think has helped in many of the decisions we have made, and connections that we have made, and gives better overall balance and credibility to what we do.

01:24:13 mircea_popescu: sure, go can't hurt.

01:24:21 AdamIRAway: 2. Rather than launch something quickly, we developed an enterprise level trading system over a period of twelve months and followed best practice in software development to develop a platform that we believe is secure, robust and stable. My own background as well as that of our CTO is in enterprise software development, and previously worked for many financial institutions in Australia.

01:24:40 AdamIRAway: 3. We have a very rich API. I realise other exchanges have this also, but not so in Australia.

01:25:18 mircea_popescu: what ever came of MMADX incidentally ?

01:25:28 AdamIRAway: 4. Most people, particularly Australians (but other nationalities also), can verify themselves online within minutes, usually without having to submit any identification documents. In some cases we can't automatically verify that, we can still verify manually.

01:26:47 AdamIRAway: 5. Australians can make BPAY Deposits (it's an Australian thing), but we convert this to USD at around 2.5 % better than most banks will. International clients can do a SWIFT transfer direct into our USD account. The other Australian exchange trades AUD/XBT, but we chose USD to provide greater liquidity.

01:26:55 assbot: Australian Company to Automate Multi-Trillion Dollar Debt Market MMADX | AsiaEtrading.com

01:27:02 mircea_popescu: seems to have been "going to" in 2012 and then suddenly dissapeared.

01:27:07 mircea_popescu: is this a reuse of that platform ?

01:27:22 AdamIRAway: 6. I think we are the only Bitcoin exchange in the world that is audited by one of the major auditing firms - PricewaterhouseCoopers

01:27:45 mike_c: PWC, the bitcoin experts! :)

01:27:55 gabriel_laddel: "to develop a platform that *we believe* is secure, robust and stable..."

01:28:00 gabriel_laddel: [emphasis mine]

01:28:19 AdamIRAway: 7. And again, this only applies to Australians. Because we are an open market exchange (not a brokerage), we are not obligated to charge 10 % GST on transactions, like other brokerages in the region do.

01:28:26 decimation: AdamIRAway: you realize you basically saying "we are awesome at kyc/aml"

01:28:49 mircea_popescu: decimation well, generally, "at interfacing with austrialian banks"

01:29:24 AdamIRAway: decimation... it's important to take KYC/AML seriously, in order for us to work with banks. We do our best to make it as painless as possible for our clients, if we can.

01:30:14 asciilifeform: obligatory:

01:30:16 mircea_popescu: "MMADX hopes to turn profitable in 2015. According to the presentation, its projected earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization for fiscal 2016 and 2017 are A$23.2 million and A$34.2 million, respectively. At that time, or before, the company could undertake an initial public offering, the presentation states."

01:30:24 mircea_popescu: so it never actually listed, best i can discern. did it close down ?

01:30:27 decimation: AdamIRAway: are you going to be transparent to your customers w.r.t. actual daily balances?

01:30:33 decimation: or is that only for pwc?

01:30:35 asciilifeform: 'As progressively dumber programmers build progressively more complex systems we will see more of this kind of attempt to paper over coding mistakes with lawyers, sanctions, policies, and laws. Hollywood and the RIAA are usually the most successful at getting the government to do their bidding. Thus I predict that one day Disney will have a Web site where you can buy access to any of their movies. Because all

01:30:35 asciilifeform: of their profits are being used to pay executive salaries this will have to be built at extremely low cost. Deficiencies in the softwrae will enable vast numbers of Americans to download Bambi for free, their ISPs will be forced to rat them out, and they will all get to see Martha's Stewart's cell in West Virginia first hand...'

01:30:43 mircea_popescu: cazalla if you have a clue how to go through the aussie corp register, it's company code: 34149069910

01:30:51 AdamIRAway: gabriel_laddel... my emphasis was on *secure, robust and scalable* ;)

01:31:39 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform incidentally, didja know that what actually broke the chicago mob was their ill advised attempt to muscle hollywood into shape ?

01:31:41 BingoBoingo: AdamIRAway: Does you exchange handle shoebox in the mail full of paper money transactions?

01:32:03 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: unsurprising

01:32:15 decimation: people who tell the masses how to think and vote tend to maintain their position

01:32:17 asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: probably not, but your postman does!

01:32:23 gabriel_laddel: AdamIRAway: I see.

01:32:27 asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: he'll be happy to pay his grocery bill with them.

01:33:18 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: propaganda ministry wins over ordinary mob

01:33:24 AdamIRAway: decimation... Pwc will be auditing our finances, and we will make their report available. We are looking to engage them to audit our XBT reserves as well shortly. We aren't currently transparent day-to-day regarding our reserves/balances, but it is obviously something we will be looking to do shortly after our launch.

01:33:27 cazalla: mircea_popescu, Cancelled from 28 Feb 2014

01:33:30 BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: But in future world a shoebox full a benjies buys what? A single tomatoe?

01:33:46 asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: a few minutes of fire in potbelly stove

01:33:51 decimation: AdamIRAway: that pretty much sounds to me something like "we plan to float bitcoin and hope we don't get screwed"

01:34:51 mircea_popescu: anyway, since michael go doesn't seem on the menu, how did you get Admiral Markets's very own Lasanka Perera ? or what exactly is the arrangement there ?

01:36:17 AdamIRAway: decimation... I'm not sure how you interpreted my statement to reach that viewpoint. We take both our USD and XBT reserves very seriously, and will be looking to provide cryptograhic proof of our Bitcoin reserves shortly.

01:36:46 AdamIRAway: Lasanka Perera is a friend of mine, and co-founder of Independent Reserve.

01:38:02 mircea_popescu: AdamIRAway any comment on how MMDX got deregistered ?

01:38:58 AdamIRAway: mircea_popescu - no sorry, can you give me some more context?

01:40:47 mircea_popescu: yes. the context is like so : an old time forex broker with a kind-of mlm-y past that used to do metals and everything got together with a guy that had a company that was going to trade debt advertised then suddenly disappeared. they hired a coupla software dudes (you and the Przelozny) and a very clueless legal chick with no practice. in this context, i'm trying to figure out exactly how did said debt trading platform

01:40:48 mircea_popescu: company get closed down.

01:42:35 mircea_popescu: now my thinking is that you couldn't have spent very long making a dedicated platform, seeing how this just happened this year, so you're either reusing one or the other. i somehow doubt it's admiral's platform, so prolly im guessing mmdx's ?

01:42:38 mircea_popescu: !up AdamIRAway

01:43:29 AdamIRAway: mircea_popescu... I think you have the wrong idea about several points.

01:43:41 mircea_popescu: well that's good, that's what you're here for after all.

01:43:53 assbot: Spending the “Help Stamp Out CVS In Your Lifetime” fund

01:43:56 AdamIRAway: First of all, I'm not involved in any waay with MMDX - I hadn't heard of them until you mentioned it.

01:44:13 mircea_popescu: but you did some research on your partners or no ?

01:44:37 AdamIRAway: Secondly, we aren't using any software from Admiral Markets or MMDX, not a single line of code, I don't know what systems they've used previously. Our systems have been developed in-house over the past 15 months.

01:45:03 asciilifeform: ^

01:45:21 AdamIRAway: Thirdly. Nobody hired a "couple of software dudes and a clueless legal chick", as you described...

01:45:59 AdamIRAway: Myself, along with Adrian Przelozny are the majority shareholders of Independent Reserve.

01:46:09 mircea_popescu: o, it goes the other way ?

01:46:29 mircea_popescu: interesting.

01:46:49 mircea_popescu: ok so basically you and the prezelozny fellow made this thing and reached out for some consultancy work from finance and legal peeps ?

01:47:02 AdamIRAway: Our Compliance Specialist has a lot of experience in compliance obviously, and through her we have engaged Baker & McKenzie for specialised legal advice as required.

01:47:11 *: RagnarDanneskjol wonders how long this infomercial for indy reserve will go on (also do they have shiraz blend?).. changes channel

01:47:35 AdamIRAway: RagnarDanneskjol... I was invited here, and asked questions.

01:47:39 mircea_popescu: RagnarDanneskjol it's the trade gazette, what do you want. ppl gotta be able to answer.

01:47:43 RagnarDanneskjol: ok cool

01:47:45 mircea_popescu: AdamIRAway dun worry about it.

01:47:48 BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Nao I have more to read

01:47:50 AdamIRAway: Sorry they haven't been to your liking, I will be happy to leave if it's not welcome.

01:48:33 RagnarDanneskjol: dont mind me - sounded more like advert than adderessing relevant Qs

01:48:53 mircea_popescu: AdamIRAway anyway, i think i get the basic idea. it's not bad or anything. get in the wot so bitcoin people have a direct point of contact and other than that, time will tell.

01:58:12 BingoBoingo: I remember his printer rant

01:58:28 AdamIRAway: mircea_popescu... I've just been trying to get some context regarding what you were saying before... I thought you were referring to something Lasanka had been involved with...

01:58:42 AdamIRAway: Adrian Przelozny, Lasanka Perera and myself were the co-founders of Independent Reserve.

02:01:40 BingoBoingo: !up AdamIR2

02:01:44 AdamIR2: I realise now you were talking about Michael Go, and his involvement with MMADX several years ago. I don't know the details of his involvement with that, but it is not connected with Independent Reserve.

02:02:07 AdamIR2: On that note... I need to go back and so some work. Thanks for your questions.

02:07:26 ben_vulpes: was the blockchain written directly to disk at some point in the reference client's history?

02:08:40 asciilifeform: 'directly' ?

02:08:57 decimation: wasn't it always in a Berkeley db?

02:09:13 ben_vulpes: as opposed to BDB

02:09:46 decimation: like, as a flat text file or something?

02:09:54 *: ben_vulpes does not actually understand how the infinite layers of the modern v.n. architecture does it's nasty business.

02:10:04 ben_vulpes: decimation: i imagined something like that, yeah.

02:10:14 decimation: I doubt it, that would be crazy

02:10:24 decimation: the code is out there for reading though, I suppose

02:10:43 ben_vulpes: still working through the changelog

02:11:22 asciilifeform: http://www.zorinaq.com/pub/bitcoin-0.1.0.tgz

16:22:18 *: Adlai is quite curious to see what happens if/when changes such as a the blocksize hardfork get pushed to the reference implementation

16:23:32 mircea_popescu: this is sort-of like wanting to see what happens if/when the soviets finally decide to cross fulda ?

16:23:52 Adlai: "some people just wanna see the world burn" ^_^

16:24:55 mircea_popescu: i'm all for it, the level of either cluelessness or desperation such a move entails is promising.

16:26:07 Adlai: such a drastic change would definitely cast this issue (and others) into the limelight, until now it's been confined to a few IRC channels and blog posts

16:26:43 bounce: with enough hashrate on 0.6 (or whichever, maintained etc.) and staying there, hardforks are bound to fizzle. could try and talk to large pool operators.

16:26:47 Adlai: as much as the timecube's four days revolve around the WoT, I wouldn't be surprised if most of the people who have heard about the hardfork proposal haven't heard any competing argument against it

16:27:08 mats_cd03: so?

16:27:16 mats_cd03: the only opinion that matters is that of miners.

16:27:32 mats_cd03: and... they won't let themselves get shit on.

16:28:41 Adlai: miners are people too, and people don't always make the best decisions. even if they act rationally, they might not be aware of all the information about an issue.

16:29:01 mats_cd03: uh...

16:30:01 chetty: You've long been a proponent of the "Bitcoin is an experiment" line of thinking. While that is technically true, so is "Gravity is just a theory". What needs to happen for you to switch from "Bitcoin is an experiment" to "Bitcoin is established"?

16:31:03 assbot: gavinandresen comments on I'm Gavin Andresen, Chief Scientist at the Bitcoin Foundation. Ask me anything!

16:31:05 mircea_popescu: Adlai the "most people" argument is pretty much nil.

16:31:20 mircea_popescu: most bitcoin reads mp way before it remembers who the fuck this gavin schmuck is.

16:31:42 mircea_popescu: because money doesn't think all that much of code monkeys. and definitely isn't going to start taking their ideas of how to manage things seriously.

16:31:49 Adlai: how closely coupled are "most bitcoin" and "most hashrate"?

16:31:52 mircea_popescu: it hasn't happened yet, in 100 years of computing.

16:32:05 mircea_popescu: most hashrate is a secondary factor here.

16:32:45 mircea_popescu: yeah, it's possible miners won't make the best decision. this was illustrated yesterday, when the atc miners failed to make the best decision.

16:32:50 diametric: maybe i'm mistaken but doesn't the white paper basically state a hard fork will be required in the future to address scalability?

16:32:56 mircea_popescu: their failure was signalled to them within minutes, and they obeyed that signal in an hour.

16:33:01 mircea_popescu: bitcoin will work no different.

16:38:29 kakobrekla: RagnarDanneskjol if you can put them in order i can include them online (before the log starts)

16:38:40 Adlai: it'd be a little funny if all the devs agreed to the hardfork, got a working patch together, then went miner by miner and couldn't get a single one to agree to switch

16:38:56 RagnarDanneskjol: ok

16:39:02 mircea_popescu: they'd just be a iota more ridiculously pointless than they are today

17:25:39 asciilifeform: 'theoretically raise a building off of its foundation during an earthquake, essentially rendering the natural disaster's tremors harmless' << newton's laws crying from neglect

17:26:38 asciilifeform: the leper's bell of retarded sc4mz0rz - a flagrant and malignant disregard for elementary physics

17:27:41 xanthyos: but if the ground unit vibrated so too would its magnetic field and thus the building

17:27:45 xanthyos: though it would absorb shock

17:28:10 asciilifeform: why should it absorb shock?

17:28:50 asciilifeform: not that an electromagnetic shock absorber is impossible - it exists, and has for years - but no magic here.

17:29:20 asciilifeform: and magnetically-floated item is not resting on 'nothing at all', yes.

17:29:26 xanthyos: well there would have to be magnets in the ground to create the field for the building to be repulsed from in the event of an earthquake

17:30:06 asciilifeform: i have a very special, very deep loathing for 'kickstart' sc4mz0rs. especially of this particular species.

17:30:32 Apocalyptic: asciilifeform, to be fair it's not the newton's law that is neglected here, but the fact that you won't get a magnetic field even close to be powerfull enough to support that weight

17:31:34 asciilifeform: nope. even with infinitely strong magnetic effect, the ground is still taking up the weight, and were it to move, would propagate vibration to the 'levitated' object.

17:31:57 mike_c: on kickstarter those guys are selling a hover board for $450 that.. doesn't hover.

17:32:29 xanthyos: that propagated vibration would be less than the vibration the building would experience without the field gap between it and the ground magnets

17:32:33 Apocalyptic: "and were it to move, would propagate vibration to the 'levitated' object." that's assuming a magnetic field of constant power, right ?

17:32:52 asciilifeform: they are selling 'hope, chance,' chope, hange.

17:33:56 xanthyos: unless they were "smartmagnets" that could generate the inverse wave to the vibration to cancel it out in the same way that some car radios use microphones to cancel out road noise

17:34:51 xanthyos: of course, a hacker could then simulate an earthquake on that building to the same extent of magnitude that the smartmagnets were designed to resist against

17:35:00 asciilifeform: say ground moves 20cm down and then 30cm back up, earthquake. or fell into a ditch. cancel that.

17:36:27 xanthyos: also the bouncing of the building would put equal force on the ground and magnetically try to push away the ground structure even more

19:19:55 bounce: well, try this on first: "tcp/ip" generally refers to the whole stack. supposing you really ment IP (layer 3, conventionally), then "app aware" (with app: layer 7) would be a bit of a layer violation.

19:20:12 mircea_popescu: bounce exactly my point.

19:20:20 mircea_popescu: "benevolence" as an objective quality is a layer violation.

19:20:20 bounce: I ment that layer 7 still needs the lower layers to function, it doesn't float in air

19:20:51 mircea_popescu: no, it doesn't need them "to function", because it functioning is not a layer 7 thing.

19:20:57 undata: well and even among apps, "benevolence" could be defined differently

19:21:14 mircea_popescu: undata awareness, not benevolence. map correctly!

19:22:00 undata: that's a much harder term to define.

19:22:02 bounce: what is benevolence, really? apparently we can have malicious packets and software, but benevolent ones?

19:22:43 bounce: er, tcp doesn't do crap without ip to transport it. the layers do build on each other

19:22:56 Adlai: malefactors gonna malefact but packets just pack

19:23:01 chetty: isnt the difference between malicious and benevolent and mattr of viewpoint?

19:23:34 mircea_popescu: bounce that is just a manner of speaking.

19:23:43 mircea_popescu: they're obviously not malicious in and of themselves.

19:23:47 Adlai: well there is a missing object. malice and benevolence don't exist in a vacuum, they have to be directed at something

19:23:58 mircea_popescu: just, the fucktards that write about things they don;'t understand, when they're not busy husslking pete in his comment section,

19:24:05 bounce: it does include a value judgement. so it'd require a judging facility

19:24:06 mircea_popescu: misuse the words.

19:24:31 mircea_popescu: bounce it's irrelevant what it "does" at the level where ip is defined, see ?

19:24:46 mircea_popescu: stop mixing utility into ideality, that's not how thinking works.

19:24:51 bounce: "zomg rude!" -- some new guy with no clue of the local rules. << appears to be an american thing?

19:25:00 mircea_popescu: makes no difference "what use is the sun to us", that's an ontological point not an ethical one.

19:26:17 bounce: so there's no ethics to archimedes' mirrors?

19:26:30 mircea_popescu: none.

19:26:39 mircea_popescu: othernubs`> imagine living in a world where logic can fail <<< that's life in a "social sciences" universe.

19:26:54 mircea_popescu: their logic fails all the god damned time, mostly because it's not logic, self-supported, it's dreamweaving

19:27:01 mircea_popescu: and dreamweaving MUST be constantly maintained.

19:27:43 bounce: warzones typically are unhinging because there's no rhyme or reason to the happenings.

19:28:09 bounce: (thus we conclude that wars are applied social science)

19:28:17 mircea_popescu: not rly.

19:28:43 bounce: Y U NO LIEK my logic?

19:28:49 mircea_popescu: warzones are "unhinging" because the complexity of "society" is a function of the mean distance between individual and his own death

19:29:03 mircea_popescu: if that is reduced significantly, the need for some forms goes away.

19:29:20 mircea_popescu: that's why the classical, 19th century murican has the reputation of being uncouth and direct and undecourous in europe

19:29:32 mircea_popescu: cuz he got to see his own death on average a lot closer than the average yurpean

19:29:37 bounce: I'd say the predictability is the more valued property there

19:29:49 mircea_popescu: how so ?

19:30:11 bounce: if everybody lives to, say, 30, then dies without fail, it's a fact of life

19:30:44 mircea_popescu: you ever been in a warzone ?

19:30:51 chetty: bounce, ever see 'Logan's Run' ?

19:30:54 bounce: no, and I'd like to keep it that way, TYVM

19:31:14 mircea_popescu: but it's nonsense. who the fuck thinks about "the future" lol. people in a warzone think about cunt, and maybe good cognac.

19:31:14 bounce: haven't seen it, roughly know the plot. probably should take the time sometime.

19:31:33 chetty: people died at 30 ...

19:31:34 mircea_popescu: to think about "your career" you gotta be so far away from a warzone your head'd be spinning

19:35:05 undata: it's interesting that one could ask himself whether it's ethical to establish the conditions necessary for ethical reasoning, but only under the necessary conditions...

19:35:40 mircea_popescu: wait, wut ?!

19:35:50 mircea_popescu: one can ask no ethical questions about ontos.

19:36:21 mircea_popescu: you can ask, "is it ethical to kill this man", you can not ask "is it ethical for this man to have been killed." obviously, he's dead, so nevermind.

19:36:35 undata: right, ethics concerns action

19:36:38 mircea_popescu: and confusing "was it ethical for this man to be kiled at he point in the past when he was" with "is it" is so fuckin dumb

19:36:49 undata: I was proceeding from the point about war

19:36:53 mircea_popescu: it automatically paints one as an intellectual failure of the english speaking school of idiocy.

19:38:02 mircea_popescu: anyway. there's no ethical violation in the dead being dead, no matter how they got to be there, nor in the raped to be dripping cum, nor in any other thing that is. they're fine as they are ; being trumps fretting.

19:38:44 undata: or, the present is all there is

19:39:14 mircea_popescu: something like that.

19:39:21 mircea_popescu: depends where you're going with it.

19:42:06 undata: talking about what's ethical in the present is hard to generalize

19:42:13 undata: that's what I was referring to above re: apps

19:42:45 undata: depends on what your goals are, and why, and why, and why

19:45:24 undata: modern neuroscience makes that "you" itself harder to define by the day

20:39:17 assbot: Qntra.net Traffic and Demographic Statistics by Quantcast

20:39:43 Apocalyptic: <asciilifeform> nope. even with infinitely strong magnetic effect, the ground is still taking up the weight, and were it to move, would propagate vibration to the 'levitated' object. // this is true but of no help to the argument, since if you can predict the amplitude/frequency of the "earthquake", you can impose the same variations on the intensity of the current generating your magnetic field

20:40:27 bounce: that means you'd be amplifying the whole thing

20:40:52 Apocalyptic: hence making the object go up or down relatively to the magnetic support, nullifying the eartquake (again all this in theory)

20:41:09 Apocalyptic: well bounce for the sake of the argument let's take the magnetic field generated by a simple solenoid

20:41:17 Apocalyptic: its strength is linear in I

20:41:54 Apocalyptic: what is this "whole thing" you consider ?

20:41:58 bounce: sure you can build a magnetic dampener; things with antiphase and enough room to move and things

20:42:17 Apocalyptic: afaik that was the topic yes

20:42:33 bounce: that doesn't mean that a big large fixed magnetic field will magically cushion any and all vibration, which I understand was the point

20:42:50 Apocalyptic: bounce, never I have seen the word "fixed"

20:43:12 bounce: it was pretty much implied

20:43:32 bounce: "here, magnetic field. problem solved." -- nooo, not quite

20:46:40 mircea_popescu: <Apocalyptic> // of course it's not, and nobody is contesting that. It just can made to have that sort of behaviour << that depends.

20:49:51 mircea_popescu: it dun go.

20:50:23 mircea_popescu: you're gonna hope it averages out, but in practical reality you will have constructed a magnetic building toppler.

20:50:31 Apocalyptic: mircea_popescu, yeah, I assumed a simple, uniform, vertical translation as the movement

20:50:37 mircea_popescu: well ?

20:50:58 mircea_popescu: you can do the actual math involved, see the probability of your building ending up on the larger surface at the end of it all.

20:50:59 Apocalyptic: cause this all is "in theory"

20:51:05 mircea_popescu: it's mostly a function of its height and perimeter.

20:51:24 mircea_popescu: but it's not really a theory, more like a daydreaming, see ?

20:51:36 mircea_popescu: cause it doesn't properly account for the world, just for what the theorizer'd like.

20:51:49 Apocalyptic: indeed it does

20:52:02 mircea_popescu: which is how good theories are started, of course

20:52:07 mircea_popescu: but not what they actually are.

20:52:12 Apocalyptic: I was just merely showing a theoretical model where it does work

21:42:11 jurov: and it's ballpark figure for spot instances, why would our price be vastly different?

21:42:33 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 22118 @ 0.00073583 = 16.2751 BTC [-] {2}

21:42:44 mircea_popescu: jurov if you mean spot instances such as amazon or w/e, a) those come with riders and b) try and get a dedicated ip say.

21:44:35 jurov: a) is better and cheaper solved by distribution of $maxint mass produced boxen than relying on users to diy

21:44:44 mircea_popescu: but this aside : yes if this existed i'd be using it pretty much exclusively

21:45:25 jurov: where you can control the whole machine

21:45:28 mircea_popescu: jurov you're missing the key point of it, which is, no government gets a say in what code runs.

21:45:33 mircea_popescu: this is something amazon can never provide.

21:50:10 jurov: what can be done right now, maybe, platform for exchanging machines between DCs?

21:50:49 jurov: as in, you can host spares for other services and vice versa to be switched quickly in case of ddos?

21:51:30 jurov: or peer-to-peer operated CDN?

21:52:33 jurov: there is existent software for this, just some business mastermind to monetize it

22:17:46 pete_dushenski: "by breeding draft horses that ran on cultivated, nutrient-dense fodder, [Europe saw] substantially lowered transportation costs. This allowed the value of northwestern Europe's bulk transportation networks to radically increase and made it very nearly as inevitable that that region would be the pioneers of the industrial revolution."

22:39:36 ben_vulpes: code review, please: https://www.refheap.com/92123

22:39:37 assbot: anonymous's paste: 92123

22:40:09 *: kakobrekla added a proxy to site title parser so assbots ip is not sniffable that way anymore

22:40:31 pete_dushenski: ben_vulpes 0.5.3!

22:40:35 ben_vulpes: yup.

22:40:42 pete_dushenski: ilike.

22:41:45 Apocalyptic: regarding: "20 sed -i '/USE_UPNP:=0/d' ./makefile.unix", why not USE_UPNP:=- ?

22:41:52 ben_vulpes: rips out UPNP support.

22:42:14 jurov: ;;later tell othernubs` just make one big scroll. turing machine needs turing tape!

22:42:15 gribble: The operation succeeded.

22:42:21 Apocalyptic: exactly, you want it ?

22:42:29 ben_vulpes: do I?

22:43:57 ben_vulpes: Apocalyptic: do let me know if there's a good reason to keep UPNP in there.

22:43:58 jurov: disablewallet=1 would not work with 0.5.3

22:44:03 Apocalyptic: well if you don't I don't see the point in the '0',

22:44:06 Apocalyptic: there is not

22:44:20 ben_vulpes: oh oh

22:44:29 Apocalyptic: but then just replace the '0' with a hyphen

22:44:56 jurov: also rpcpassword is required

22:44:59 Apocalyptic: nukes it straight away (and yes there actually is (or was) 3 levels for that var in the makefile, 1,0 and - )

22:45:13 cazalla: that poker BRO breakout scam has raised 36.33 btc so far, they must be disappointed

22:46:26 kakobrekla: lol no luck cazalla ?

22:46:32 cazalla: i posted about it :\

22:46:40 jurov: ben_vulpes: just read the makefile and try whatever sticks. i remmeber having to, too

22:47:22 ben_vulpes: well it builds quite happily.

22:47:22 Apocalyptic: ben_vulpes, aha, so i guess i mistook the hyphen for the empty char

22:47:23 Apocalyptic: anyway use "USE_UPNP=" to build without it

22:47:23 ben_vulpes: later they introduced the hyphen, that apparently wasn't a thing at 0.5.3

22:47:41 ben_vulpes: so forgive my c makefile naivte, but is there a difference between an USE_UPNP= and just not declaring the variable?

22:47:48 Apocalyptic: so i'm not imagining it at least, heh

22:48:08 Apocalyptic: <ben_vulpes> so forgive my c makefile naivte, but is there a difference between an USE_UPNP= and just not declaring the variable? // that i do not know, not a bash specialist

22:48:35 kakobrekla: ben_vulpes i assume theres a default value ?

22:48:56 kakobrekla: grep it

22:49:02 ben_vulpes: in the makefile?

22:49:41 kakobrekla: where theres any config?

22:50:10 ben_vulpes: i ripped the assignation line out entirely. later there's an ifndef that assigns it to the hyphen.

22:52:04 mike_c: ben_vulpes: i know in later version i had to explicitly set it blank
