00:03:22 phf: fwiw openbsd didn't make it through v-ification either, it was designed to work cross platform, but i believe there were makefile modifications since, that didn't include it. i don't actively run openbsd, so can't integration test the result

00:05:24 danielpbarron: >> me: the universe does not guarantee a solution to things that humans perceive as problems. << personification of 'universe' to replace God

00:06:59 assbot: Lesson learned from the Classic coup attempt or why Core needs to prepare a GPU only PoW — Medium ... ( http://bit.ly/1ZJOJ2X )

00:28:16 ben_vulpes: mircea_popescu: dude, yes. transient, no.

00:29:00 ben_vulpes: mod6: i do believe that i understand now.

00:29:36 ben_vulpes: 'tis a very surgical strike, if i'm reading correctly. only if the flag is set and the sig does not bear the correct order is order enforced.

00:30:11 ben_vulpes: i'd have probably done something ham-handed and just set the order for the given flag, which would be a bigger change to life-fire use than i think would be warranted.

00:32:10 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 5600 @ 0.00055547 = 3.1106 BTC [-]

00:33:17 ben_vulpes: danielpbarron: i swear that i'm referencing something mircea_popescu said with that line, but i'll be damned if i can find the original.

00:40:43 mod6: phf: your patch(s) did work for me on openbsd. i think, once we have all of trinque's makefiles ready to go with the new (forthcoming) version of V, you and I should work together to get a new vpatch of your openbsd changes submitted.

00:41:21 mod6: The hang up here is that, it basically can't be mirrored in the same place as the rest of the patches; simply because when one sync's up against a mirror your changes will break the rest of the tree.

00:42:09 mod6: so either, we need a separate repository for openbsd patches (not a bad idea), or we should just put the new openbsd vpatch in the mailing list for those who need it -- let them just add it to their V 'patches' directoriy by hand

00:42:16 mod6: *directory

00:42:23 mod6: make sense?

00:42:35 mod6: <+ben_vulpes> mod6: i do believe that i understand now. << cool!

00:42:45 ben_vulpes: fwiw i completely failed to get the openbsd patch to work.

00:43:02 ben_vulpes: but i probably hosed something on that machine way before ever making it to building tri.

00:43:22 mod6: yeah, i think i need to walk you through the exact steps. i did get it to build, and fully sync a chain even. was very happy about that.

00:43:45 shinohai: mod6: i am fully synced nau ^^

00:45:23 mod6: having an alternate to linux is important to me. and i was able to build a static binary, but obviously this doesn't work with the rotor (linux only buildroot). i did build it with the stator.

00:45:43 mod6: anyway, getting a buildable openbsd is a priority of mine. there are just bigger things in front of that for the moment.

00:45:53 mod6: <+shinohai> mod6: i am fully synced nau ^^ << ^6

00:46:02 mod6: does that bring us to 8 nodes now

01:49:48 ben_vulpes: also looks like the storied Oberlin conservatory is about to turn into Rap Kollege

01:51:14 adlai: fwiw friend who teaches classics at a usg 'prep school' attests to having had a student excused from any and all performance standards due to APD (which stands for 'auditory processing disorder')

01:51:39 adlai: tis the new AD[h]D

01:51:39 ben_vulpes: "We DEMAND an online database that outlines the deadlines, dates, and forms critical for the successful academic journey of Black students" because we can't be arsed to figure it out ourselves, read syllabi when they're handed out or at all, and because of course knowing to do all of the above is something we were not prepared for in life and this must be rectified at the expense of everyone else attending the school.

01:52:06 ben_vulpes: lol required events

02:05:25 ben_vulpes: i thought there'd be about another 5 years before things got this nutso

02:05:28 BingoBoingo: And seriously Oberlin historically has been a trailblazer in surrendering to such demands

02:07:22 ben_vulpes: tenure for an artist in residence, nice

02:08:33 ben_vulpes: "We DEMAND that Black student leaders be provided a[n] $8.20/hr stipend for their continuous organizing efforts around the well[-]being of Black people on Oberlin's campus, city and beyond" << man that is some low-dough shit

02:09:42 ben_vulpes: "We DEMAND that each worker, temporary or permanent working for the College Dining Hall Services be given a meal every work shift"

02:26:40 mod6: <+mircea_popescu> http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=24-01-2016#1383446 << wait, explain this to me ? << the idea is that our makefiles, or whatever build scripts will utilize V to build inside of the rotor (a linux thing) - the source must be compatable with that. phf's openbsd scripts are not compatible with this.

02:26:51 asciilifeform: everything i've so far experienced with openbsd suggests that

02:26:53 asciilifeform: it is retarded

02:26:57 mircea_popescu: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=24-01-2016#1383495 << rap "industree" is dead in the water so all the wanna-be succeeders at "the game" want federal dollars to prop up their delusion.

02:27:13 asciilifeform: and that it is only quasi-works for a few very specific use cases

02:27:23 asciilifeform: perhaps it was once a thing, i cannot say

02:27:24 mod6: however, if he and I work together, we could possibly get some patches in place that would check to see what the local environment is and if __BSD__, then apply, otherwise, do not.

02:27:44 asciilifeform: pretty much every single 'openbsdism' i've so far run into screams braindamage

02:27:54 mircea_popescu: mod6 so basically we can't use our convenient makefiles to build the pressed source ; openbsd people gotta finagle their own build chain to get the same source to compile and link ?

02:28:05 asciilifeform: (~different~ braindamage than in linux, and this is appealing to some people)

02:28:07 mod6: yes.

02:28:21 mircea_popescu: well yeah, seems this will have to be separately maintained.

02:28:33 asciilifeform: just like the nintendo port.

02:28:39 mircea_popescu: i suspect it'd be a horrid mistake to try and merge the notion of a press and the notion of a makefile.

02:29:03 mod6: and further, the changes that we wanted to make with V (where we mechanically check to see the patch was applied correctly by checking the hashes) also will not work on bsd unless a bunch more alterations are made, but this is a side issue.

02:29:08 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: correct, they are entirely different processes with just enough superficially in common to lead n00bz to conceptual perdition

02:29:20 mircea_popescu: mod6 how can that possibly happen ?!

02:29:39 mod6: this is because BSD's sha/md commands spit out the digests in different way than on linux.

02:29:45 mircea_popescu: oh ffs.

02:30:30 ben_vulpes: yeah, i ran into this.

02:30:32 ben_vulpes: needs -q flags.

02:31:09 mircea_popescu: so basically, this should prolly be on the wiki or what.

02:31:47 mod6: linux:

02:31:47 mod6: # sha256sum blah.txt

02:31:48 mod6: 827aa4d3ea7c8b7177abe0e2d1d87f45857755df32956fbc54e7a1c10981e6b4 blah.txt

02:32:16 BingoBoingo: <asciilifeform> (~different~ braindamage than in linux, and this is appealing to some people) << This is pretty much its appeal to me. I have modest needs as far as necessary hardware and necessary software go.

02:32:25 mod6: so a minor annoyance there. but alas.

02:33:00 *: adlai notes that the three laws are phrased as guidelines for builders, rather than code for execution

02:33:04 BingoBoingo: Also Openbsd base system is complete enough to make internet on mars

02:33:09 adlai: ... wrong chanl (or maybe not?)

02:33:21 mod6: <+mircea_popescu> mod6 so basically we can't use our convenient makefiles to build the pressed source ; openbsd people gotta finagle their own build chain to get the same source to compile and link ? << and further more, they'll never have the same build process like we want.

02:34:19 mod6: because they can not use buildroot... at least, I don't *think* they can, easily at lesat. they could turn on Linux Binary Comapt mode and perhaps some other kernel tweeks. would need to be looked a.t.

02:34:22 mircea_popescu: mod6 thinking about this, the problem slowly becomes that not only does bitcoin gravitate towards bitcoinos, but it puts some serious problems to any attempt at wide support.

02:34:41 mod6: for sure. our best bet, is bitcoinos.

02:35:11 mircea_popescu: the problem with that is that well... nobody'd want to bash in bitcoinos. so we'll end up with a very strange catamaran of a stack.

02:35:23 mircea_popescu: pete_dushenski do you mind ?

02:35:25 adlai: pete_dushenski: more helpful to say where you encountered the deadlink :)

02:35:30 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i am actually dealing with precisely this as we speak

02:35:59 danielpbarron: pete_dushenski, follow assbot's bitly link

02:36:02 asciilifeform: dusted off draft of something i had a while back, because mircea_popescu mentioned it and proclaimed that it isn't wholly retarded

02:36:13 mircea_popescu: which was this ?

02:36:26 asciilifeform: tinyscheme welded onto trb

02:36:39 asciilifeform: draft name on my disk was.. shiva

02:36:41 mircea_popescu: ah, right.

02:36:51 mircea_popescu: anyway, for the first time so far it occurs to me we might be setting ourselves up for failure here. because of this support / os issue.

02:37:02 asciilifeform: it will be a ~shell~

02:37:05 asciilifeform: in trb.

02:37:24 pete_dushenski: my apologies for the linkspam interruption

02:37:48 asciilifeform: only switched on, with command line flag, if you are really ready to meet allah;

02:37:53 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform logically : a) you won't want to ssh into the node and do your bash there (providing it even has ssh). this means you'll be stuck using something else on top of bitcoin-os.

02:38:14 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: this is elementarily not so

02:38:15 mircea_popescu: obviously, as a general thing, people MIGHT consider running a bitcoin node on any box they run.

02:38:27 mircea_popescu: but if bitcoin can not be run there... well...

02:38:27 asciilifeform: the bare metal variant will expose shiva shell through one of the serial ports

02:38:39 asciilifeform: which can be attached to whatever you like, e.g., a unix box running sshd

02:38:48 asciilifeform: sort of what folks do with routers and factory robots today

02:38:55 mircea_popescu: hm

02:39:20 mircea_popescu: so then the model here is to have fundamentally speaking a pogo/arm-ish level bitcoind/os, that doesn't really natively build on anything without a laundry list of finicking ?

02:39:33 asciilifeform: builds ~on~ whatever the fuck you like

02:39:44 asciilifeform: rotor does this already

02:39:44 mircea_popescu: i mean software-on not hardware-on

02:39:51 asciilifeform: software-on.

02:39:56 asciilifeform: rotor will build on nintendo.

02:39:58 mircea_popescu: then what is the bsd problem ?

02:40:04 asciilifeform: building ~for~

02:40:09 mircea_popescu: huh ?

02:40:24 asciilifeform: iirc nobody succeeded in building ~for~ it ?

02:40:47 mircea_popescu: so you bring up your *bsd box, run rotor on it, does it build or doesn't it.

02:40:48 asciilifeform: or hm, looks like userland caltrops prevent even v from running there

02:41:04 mircea_popescu: right. so no, rotor doesn't "do this already".

02:41:08 asciilifeform: aha

02:41:28 asciilifeform: to which i say that it is braindamaged to expect the thing to build on arbitrary crud os

02:41:34 asciilifeform: what, i also do a winblows toolchain now ?

02:41:44 asciilifeform: vms?

02:41:56 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform so if someone has a box that they're using, they can't run a bitcoin node there unless they run it under bitcoinos ?

02:42:17 asciilifeform: build the linux variant ?

02:42:27 asciilifeform: understand, if someone ~wants~ to maintain a nintendo port, let'em

02:42:33 mircea_popescu: "bitcoinos" is a symbol here. may mean linux, whatever the fuck it means.

02:42:45 asciilifeform: but 'runs for everybody on every kind of dead animal in a box' is a dead end goal

02:43:15 mircea_popescu: and so what, we're officially targetting "anything that's unix post bsd pre systemd" ?

02:43:24 asciilifeform: i dare say that expecting a vaguely linuxlike ~build environment~ is not unreasonable

02:43:47 mircea_popescu: and so then bsd support, like windows or crapple support, would be a bolt-on ?

02:43:53 asciilifeform: if somebody wants to maintain a parallel universe 'v' et al where the bsd flags make it go, i will take off my hat to them.

02:43:54 asciilifeform: aha.

02:44:14 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform well apparently phf was half-trying but no hats.

02:44:31 mircea_popescu: phf you seriously considering maintaining a bsd rotor thing ?

02:46:36 mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo srsly why are you putting your uni library in the deedbot.

02:46:58 BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: So that I don't have to link fiat uni web sites.

02:47:14 mircea_popescu: hm.

02:47:26 BingoBoingo: If reddit is to be denied links so ought they.

02:47:47 BingoBoingo: In case the documents get "Oberlin'd"

02:48:11 *: adlai notes that a) archive.is works for backup b) deedbot provides verification alone c) the blockchain works for paranoid-max backup, if you pay your way

02:48:44 mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo yeah the part where your otherwise reasonable idea breaks down is where deedbot is not really a webservice

02:48:51 mircea_popescu: even if currently available on web endpoint as well.

02:50:56 BingoBoingo: Well, librarybot is still 18-36 months out.

02:51:35 mircea_popescu: anyway. i suppose this entire compatibility general issue will need more thinking about.

02:52:07 *: adlai is currently working on blockchain-databot or whatever's a better name

02:52:17 mod6: yeah, very much so. a good conversation to have though, as our future roadmap depends on some early-on food for thought.

02:52:24 adlai: SaaS (spam, spam, blockchain, spam)

02:53:41 mircea_popescu: mod6 to my mind it's almost as if we bit a recursion girder over here. "v presses source". "ok how do i build it ?" "uh... i guess you need a v-make genesis and follow that for your os." "ok... how do i do that ?" "well... get v-make-make and..."

02:53:46 mod6: i guess my thought is, if we wanna make bitcoinos - we will end up forking either SVR4 or BSD, and then getting married.

02:54:03 adlai: the general goals being - get the data in there, as cheaply as possible, without same standards as http://www.loper-os.org/?p=1490 and some reasonable method to random-access without having to reconstruct the entire turd

02:54:05 assbot: Loper OS » Practical Blockchain Telegraphy. ... ( http://bit.ly/1LY30Hl )

02:54:14 adlai: s/out// blah

02:54:27 mod6: so we may think of a different way of doing something like this, maybe it's not a full OS of sorts, maybe its a embedded deal.

02:54:28 asciilifeform: adlai: why not also suggest placing it on mars ?

02:54:31 asciilifeform: cheaper.

02:54:36 mircea_popescu: mod6 here's the problem with "Bitcoinos" : you will want it adapted for bitcoin needs, which necessarily means it won't be your tool of choice for doing almost anything else, which necessarily means maintaining it will be a pain in the ass.

02:54:54 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: trying to wiggle out from under this is misguided imho.

02:54:58 asciilifeform: it is a logical necessity.

02:55:11 mircea_popescu: im not making any calls here, just running the horse around the field.

02:55:12 adlai: asciilifeform: because large amounts of data are worth paying small amounts of btc to immortalize, today; and small amounts of data will always be worth paying large amounts of btc to immortalize - even tomorrow.

02:55:13 asciilifeform: just like missile guidance needs a particular kind of os

02:55:17 asciilifeform: that you won't play tetris on

02:55:24 asciilifeform: or even compile itself on.

02:55:31 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 86600 @ 0.000562 = 48.6692 BTC [+] {2}

02:55:42 *: adlai also got an upfront btc donation to do this so ~shrug~

02:55:49 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform but this faces you with the unpleasant choice of whether to not play tetris or not run bitcoin on your homebox.

02:56:18 asciilifeform: i already have this choice with many other things

02:56:29 mircea_popescu: see, that';s thje bitch here : missile guidance has to be on missile and there only. there's no benefit from it running on jane's computor.

02:56:31 asciilifeform: e.g., i have a set of boxes for running winblowz virii on.

02:56:37 asciilifeform: that are not fit for any other purpose

02:56:43 mircea_popescu: nevertheless.

02:56:54 asciilifeform: and many folks keep similar winblowz box for games, etc

02:57:13 adlai: mircea_popescu: ever heard of 4th gen ATMs? (not the kind that gets skimmed)

02:57:15 mircea_popescu: there's no space in the future for windows.

02:57:23 mircea_popescu: so i'm not terribly interested in that line of thought.

02:57:32 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: mentioned on account of separate-box

02:57:42 asciilifeform: there is no space in the future for commodore 64, and yet i have one

02:57:48 asciilifeform: that was not the point.

02:58:02 mircea_popescu: but i'm discussing YOUR HOME BOX. not some rando box you run.

02:58:14 asciilifeform: from where comes this perverse scenario of 'one box'

02:58:21 asciilifeform: serious toilet-kitchen separation problem

02:58:31 mircea_popescu: do you have a system you work on ?

02:58:34 asciilifeform: folks who 'one box' HAVE NO BUSINESS with bitcoin

02:58:39 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i have several.

02:58:52 mircea_popescu: sure.

02:59:10 mircea_popescu: so you want to not be able to run bitcoin on them ?

02:59:28 asciilifeform: perfectly happy to run it in vm on them, if it comes to it

02:59:40 asciilifeform: (if we give it own os, with custom fs, etc)

02:59:49 asciilifeform: the way i presently run msdos.

02:59:57 mircea_popescu: wouldn't it be a shitton cheaper to not need a vm layer if at all avoidable ?

03:00:08 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: not if it gangrenes the code with #ifdefs.

03:00:08 mod6: <+mircea_popescu> mod6 here's the problem with "Bitcoinos" : you will want it adapted for bitcoin needs, which necessarily means it won't be your tool of choice for doing almost anything else, which necessarily means maintaining it will be a pain in the ass. << agree. I think that what I'm getting at is maybe it ends up being like cisco ios.

03:00:25 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform is ifdefs REALLY the only way to do this ?

03:00:27 polarbeard: bitcoinos would be based on what? I think that's the interesting part

03:00:32 asciilifeform: the actual speed penalty of vmization is perhaps 10%

03:00:38 mod6: its a thing, it gets flashed on to some firmware, and it basically just is, you can talk to it and use it, but it is its own thing.

03:00:50 mircea_popescu: mod6 this i called the "pogo" approach to it.

03:01:00 mircea_popescu: polarbeard that's an even sadder story.

03:01:02 mod6: right. exactly similar to this.

03:01:04 polarbeard: unikernel?

03:01:04 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: bsd is retarded from the linux pov (or, if you're a bsd aficionado, vice-versa)

03:01:18 mod6: yah yah, watch it ;)

03:01:20 asciilifeform: polarbeard: based on trb.

03:01:27 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform yeah i guess most of the problem comes from that chasm. we're not the first to meet it.

03:01:43 polarbeard: how do you talk with the cpu, memory, network, disk?

03:02:03 mircea_popescu: polarbeard most of those will have to be written de novo, basically. esp the filesystem.

03:02:18 asciilifeform: polarbeard: you open a book and read ? start with, e.g., tannenbaum ?

03:02:22 mircea_popescu: (or from a security perspective, esp the cpu and memory)

03:02:33 asciilifeform: polarbeard: or go to school, if you're the sort of person who goes in for that

03:02:35 polarbeard: lol, ok, gl

03:02:37 asciilifeform: (i happen to have done both)

03:03:42 mircea_popescu: so basically my tentative takeaway here is that we'll mostly try to maintain broad linux-compatibility and try and help interested parties keep the wheels oiled and turning on stuff like bsd.

03:04:10 mod6: yeah, for now. seems the most viable approach.

03:04:24 mircea_popescu: but riddle me this : how does user know his openbsd make process isn't satan's own ?

03:04:55 asciilifeform: how does linux user know ?

03:05:02 mircea_popescu: "v is provably secure. now go build it!"

03:05:08 mod6: this is perhaps were a seperate branch of V for bsd only comes in. or maybe i misunderstand.

03:05:12 asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: thread concerned an experiment

03:05:21 asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: that i am carrying out presently

03:05:30 ben_vulpes: how does tinyscheme couple into ri source?

03:05:34 asciilifeform: with hands.

03:05:38 mircea_popescu: mod6 in the end we'll need a v thread for the source, one for the manual, one for linux make one for bsd make etc ? like 4 ?

03:05:46 ben_vulpes: this is a wonder i would greatly like to see myself

03:06:04 asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: i got it to compile ages ago, the tricky bit is to add useful tendrils into it

03:06:17 asciilifeform: so you can meaningfully probe the living trb

03:06:37 ben_vulpes: this'd be hooks into running bitcoind memory space and such?

03:06:38 mod6: mircea_popescu: excellent point.

03:06:40 asciilifeform: it runs in own thread, you telnet into it

03:06:41 *: ben_vulpes mind boggles

03:06:45 asciilifeform: very barbaric

03:06:57 ben_vulpes: the shit these reversers can do

03:07:12 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform so you added tinyscheme to have sexpr rather than json, and now you telnet into scheme ?

03:07:18 asciilifeform: i'm not even 100% convinced that it isn't braindamaged yet, must be seen

03:07:31 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: it's my motherfucking tx debugger

03:07:37 asciilifeform: dont like it, write me a new one, aha

03:07:54 mircea_popescu: lol i'ma cook you some toilet soup in a moment!

03:08:06 asciilifeform: mmm.

03:08:09 mod6: haha

03:08:59 mircea_popescu: understand mod6 : the thing that scared me above isnm't per se the fact that now we need 4, but that well... it grew. might be we're sitting on some unbounded complexity / a loose recursion tail.

03:09:09 mircea_popescu: next week, 12 ? 255 ?

03:09:21 mod6: sure, the whole: 1, 2, inf. problem.

03:09:37 mircea_popescu: so this has to be pondered upon.

03:09:37 asciilifeform: sorta why i say it has to converge.

03:09:38 asciilifeform: to 1.

03:09:41 asciilifeform: incl. hardware.

03:09:56 asciilifeform: as in, canonical ~physical object~

03:09:59 asciilifeform: bits included.

03:09:59 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform nothing converges if the path to convergence is expensive.

03:10:11 asciilifeform: aha, didn't say it has any danger of happening.

03:10:16 asciilifeform: but that 'has to'

03:10:22 asciilifeform: to work as intended.

03:10:25 mircea_popescu: are you an engineer or a priest today ?

03:13:43 mod6: asciilifeform: so are we basically, with rotor, able to not only build a static bitcoind, but couldn't we also build a flashable rom that contains said static binary - a flashable universe so to speak?

03:13:58 mircea_popescu: no. i deny all such allegations at this time.

03:14:00 asciilifeform: mod6: this was my original objective with pogo

03:14:07 mod6: right.

03:14:59 mod6: yah, i still think this might be a resonable path. but lot of thought still must go into this whole thing. tonight was a great discussion on it tho.

03:15:27 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: lulzy link, it very closely resembles an undergrad homework of mine

03:15:46 mod6: does anyone else think that this is *not* a decent consideration at least? even taking into consideration the issues we ran into with pogo?

03:15:58 mircea_popescu: what do you mean ?

03:16:25 mod6: eh, sorry: does the idea of a flashable universe built from rotor still make sense.

03:16:52 mircea_popescu: definitely.

03:17:34 mod6: i think it could be pretty neat, in the end.

03:18:28 mod6: you buy a flash rom (from S.NSA? or from local place you trust??) then get V, build a flashable universe, flash the card, drop it into some device and then you can talk to it over some wire from your work station

03:25:21 polarbeard: returning to the retarded-rotator, will somebody miss it?

03:25:45 polarbeard: it supposedly overwrites the log and (how considerate) leaves you a few lines from the old one

03:28:26 mircea_popescu: and so if it can\t find 200k contiguos this actually fucking crashes ?

03:29:30 mod6: it should ask the os for 200k of mem, this should be allocated in pages (usually 4k ea. iirc) it may not be contiguos

03:29:47 mircea_popescu: ah it doesn't want to get the whole byte ?

07:48:22 ben_vulpes: pick a side i said.

07:52:07 phf: openbsd patch as written results in a working build on both linux and openbsd. it introduces necessary ifdefs to ensure cross platform support. the only change that it does to makefile is, at least according to my research, is necessary with some versions of gcc, rather then openbsd specific (has to do with static linking of pthread). without that change build ~can~ produce broken static bitcoind on both openbsd and linux. at the time

07:52:08 phf: when it was written and submitted it applied cleanly to the tree. to my knowledge it doesn't interfere with stator build. in fact the whole point of patch is to make minimally intrusive changes to source so that interested parties don't have to track down silly issues when attempting a build on their own. it's my understanding that the patch was simply dropped during v-ification, so of course now it doesn't in any way fits into

07:52:08 phf: pressing.

07:52:57 ben_vulpes: phf: i have a hunch that it was my boost compiles that were failing.

07:53:26 pete_dushenski: just noticed that crapple is pulling the same version naming strange as bitcoin 'core', ie. v. x.9 followed by x.10, x.11, x.12, etc. (is this the equiv. of web 2.12 ?)

07:58:59 phf: mircea_popescu: well, openbsd and timestamp are written in old diff format, their migration was not done by foundation when majority of patches were moved to vdiff. i interpreted that move as the patches not being needed and an invitation to perform migration myself.

08:10:47 *: BingoBoingo can finally read ben_vulpes on SSL

08:13:55 phf: one of the features of the openbsd patch is that it should build cleanly on linux, i.e. naive build or a stator build. i did a naive build that work, while i was developing, but since i assume it was not included in stator i can't speak to that.

08:16:53 phf: basically the patch being dropped created bunch of work for me, that i don't have bandwidth to pursue. (i.e. produce a v version, test on stator)

08:16:55 pete_dushenski: ben_vulpes: "The correct answer is that developed and practiced by people who take personal cryptographic hygenie very seriously" << hygiene

08:17:39 phf: otherwise the work needs to be done by other foundation members, and it comes with commitment to support openbsd build

08:18:57 phf: as it stands foundation doesn't support openbsd, and when someone wants to build on openbsd, i just support them directly

08:21:14 mircea_popescu: i guess that makes sense.

10:41:45 phf: the ~only~ "script" aspect of the patch is "-Wl,--whole-archive -lpthread -Wl,--no-whole-archive" which is a cross platform gcc argument that ensure that pthread is truly fully statically linked into bitcoind. the issue that some parts of it don't appear consistently with openbsd gcc ~and also on some of the linux gcc versions~. fucking says so in the original email

10:53:37 phf: everything else in there is either cross platform clarification or straight up an #ifdef. it's a tiny ass patch, if it doesn't build on rotor, linux, etc. it's a bug in a patch

12:43:54 punkman: "Why are we doing this? It's become increasingly clear in the course of hacking events that the FSF's needs for gcc2 are at odds with the objectives of many in the community who have done lots of hacking and improvement over the years. GCC is part of the FSF's publicity for the GNU project, as well as being the GNU system's compiler, so stability is paramount for them. On the other hand,

12:43:54 punkman: Cygnus, the Linux folks, the pgcc folks, the Fortran folks and many others have done development work which has not yet gone into the GCC2 tree despite years of efforts to make it possible."

12:48:28 punkman: "As FSF GCC died a silent death from malnutrition, both were (formally) reunited as of version 2.95 in April 1999.  With a simple renaming trick, egcs became gcc now and formally the split was over"

19:40:38 kakobrekla: high fees

19:41:05 mircea_popescu: what's "high" even mean yet.

19:41:22 ben_vulpes: no returns, no way to know if she's even minimally acceptable to spend time with, no way to know if she can suck cock...

19:41:38 mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes but none of these are the core of the matter. suppose you buy one, and i give you another.

19:41:45 punkman: ben_vulpes: static because for one, hoping user has the right openssl/bdb/etc shared lib version results in forks

19:41:47 mircea_popescu: how would you know you got a DIFFERENT one ?

19:42:45 ben_vulpes: laptop or bride, they'd be...separate physical instantiations of 'bride' or 'nut-frier'?

19:43:11 *: ben_vulpes is having a 'not enough lsd' moment

19:43:45 mircea_popescu: but think about it. suppose i loan you one of my slavegirls, and you bring her back, except you bring me back a different woman.

19:47:37 ben_vulpes: 'aha'

19:47:42 mircea_popescu: is this MY windows or HIS windows ? (is that my emacs or his emacs ?)

19:48:13 mircea_popescu: and the problem now dawns : nobody gives a shit's ass what you do to your emacs

22:37:59 asciilifeform: (it will make os api calls, yes, supposing that we want i/o at all. but this is not same thing)

22:38:00 BingoBoingo: polarbeard: Did rotor eat your copy too?

22:38:22 polarbeard: I didn't save it

22:39:08 asciilifeform: anybody at all can write patches. just like anyone could write a speech for obamitler to read. now to have him actually read it - is a different matter

22:39:14 mircea_popescu: quite exactly.

22:39:15 mod6: mircea_popescu: he was talking to me in pm when he decided not to reconcile with ben and created a new ident. i can't sign stuff from a guy who i know that my co-chair has neg-rated.

22:39:25 mircea_popescu: i cansee that.

22:39:35 mircea_popescu: what was it anyway ?

22:39:47 *: mircea_popescu points out that all this private talk just makeswork down the line.

22:39:48 BingoBoingo: polarbeard: dpaste ate it.

22:40:10 asciilifeform: aha

22:40:10 mod6: the dispute? i dunno. his ident was 'punindented

22:40:25 asciilifeform: anything you say in 'private' about trb will generally end up having to be repeated at least once.

22:40:28 polarbeard: that's okay, I won't submit anything if you don't want / have the time to read

22:40:33 mod6: i asked him to resolve this, but this has gone too far now.

22:40:39 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform and then the differences evaluated and it's just not fucking worth it.

22:40:43 asciilifeform: ^

22:40:51 BingoBoingo: But there is http://dpaste.com/3DJ855N.txt

22:40:52 assbot: ... ( http://bit.ly/1PeDr5b )

22:40:55 asciilifeform: this is why i almost never 'pm' at all these days

22:41:10 asciilifeform: launch codes go over pgp, everything else can be here.

22:42:16 polarbeard: mod6: I created a new ident because I nuked my keys, but I understand your position, you could have told me I'm not welcomed as well, instead of talking to me

22:42:55 mod6: ah, thats right. forgot you blew away your keys. but still, i gvae you ample time to resolve this with ben.

22:43:32 BingoBoingo: polarbeard: The solution is not simply new name. It is building a history and working towards the comprehensive exam.

22:43:33 mircea_popescu: now we're all stuck sitting around looking at a high strung dramatique discussion with a missing antecedent.

22:43:35 polarbeard: I don't know how to resolve the fact that he doesn't like people build stuff for nodejs

22:43:39 mircea_popescu: this is loathsome.

22:43:48 BingoBoingo: !s comprehensive exam

22:43:49 assbot: 4 results for 'comprehensive exam' : http://s.b-a.link/?q=comprehensive+exam

22:44:04 BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> this is loathsome. << This

22:44:17 asciilifeform: there is a more serious problem

22:44:24 asciilifeform: polarbeard tells us that he nuked his keys

22:44:28 mircea_popescu: so ?

22:44:31 asciilifeform: and was formerly mr. somebodyelse

22:44:36 asciilifeform: on what authority is this to be taken ?

22:44:39 BingoBoingo: ^

22:44:46 polarbeard: formerly I was nobody, I'm still nobody

22:44:53 polarbeard: ben's was my first rate

22:44:55 mircea_popescu: well thatg's what i said. how do you know "x is y". you basicaLLY don't.

22:45:00 asciilifeform: aha.

22:45:10 mircea_popescu: only way this works is if x says "i will be y".

22:45:17 mircea_popescu: y saying "i was x" is nonsense.

22:45:27 asciilifeform: maybe i was catherine the great, aha.

22:45:46 asciilifeform: or horse.

22:45:59 mircea_popescu: moreover, gpg is specificalloy intended to work as a PSEUDONYMOUS system. much like bitcoin addresses are.

22:46:27 mircea_popescu: whether you like the idea or not - jack shit you can do aobut it.

22:47:02 mircea_popescu: moreover, the corruptive influence of bitcoin over enemies works in gpg and v space too.

22:47:17 mircea_popescu: new identity has to put in effort to establish trust. if it wants to abuse it later... it does have to burn it.

22:47:28 mircea_popescu: keep things so it's never worth doing that, you don't care if it's hitler's own id.

'Because you could never have served the enemy as well as you served us,' he said. 'I realized that almost all the ideas that I hold now, that make me unashamed of anything I may have felt or done as a Nazi, came not from Hitler, not from Goebbels, not from Himmler — but from you.' He took my hand.

22:48:25 mircea_popescu: quite.

22:48:34 mircea_popescu: and to bring back that very obscure thing on fraudsters about sybils etc :

22:48:48 mircea_popescu: the ONLY viable attack against the wot is getting people to act in systematic manners.

22:48:57 mircea_popescu: it is the direct equivalent of entropy-diddling for keysystems.

22:49:53 mircea_popescu: not only "there's nothing common about common sense" - but there's a very good reason for this. common sense is decentralized system poison.

22:50:36 asciilifeform: when i explain this to folks, i like to use the example of liquid nitrogen sausage

22:50:51 asciilifeform: hit ordinary sausage with a hammer, nothing, it gets a little flatter

22:50:57 asciilifeform: now freeze it solid, do the same...

22:51:24 mircea_popescu: yeah. vitrification kills.

22:52:01 asciilifeform: the ~structure~ kills.

22:52:12 mircea_popescu: destructure all teh things!

22:52:36 mircea_popescu: hey - this actuyally works. fundamentally, we're destructuralists.

22:52:41 mircea_popescu: comes after post-poststructuralism.

22:53:07 asciilifeform: now, a very hot sausage melts into goo, burns. an entirely destructured forum - timecubes.

22:53:37 mircea_popescu: there is no such thing as "entirely destructured".

22:54:10 asciilifeform: sure.

22:54:19 asciilifeform: but it is possible to ionize the sausage.

22:54:27 asciilifeform: and generally undesirable.

22:54:31 mircea_popescu: no but this is important. the measure is not 0-> but (undefined) ->

22:54:37 mircea_popescu: very different sort of algebra.

22:55:15 asciilifeform: we actually don't have an algebra for entropy measures, other than shannon's

22:55:33 mircea_popescu: more generally, there's no algebra with a 1 but not a 0 in this sense afaik.
