00:09:52 phf: that was copy paste fail, but i'm still getting wrong shasums, http://paste.lisp.org/display/155678

00:09:53 assbot: ... ( http://bit.ly/1KAF7iK )

00:11:55 shinohai: 488c71753df901d9e6b9ac8278cb6206f5ef05eebb9a8e760a8041b26d56bc2a wot_users.sql.gz

00:12:33 shinohai: so yeah, diff

00:25:20 mod6: <+phf> shinohai: you probably have rm_gitignore.patch applied, which removes .gitignore files from src/obj/nogui and nukes the folders along the way? << i said to disregard this patch. reason is, it wipes out output dirs required by the bitcoin makefile.

00:27:31 mod6: oh, thought that said "should have"

00:28:17 shinohai: Nah it was me derping and forgetting to mkdir obj after I deleted the other :/

00:28:18 mod6: anyway, yeah, just be aware that it breaks things with the Makefile. http://therealbitcoin.org/ml/btc-dev/2015-July/000127.html

00:28:19 assbot: [BTC-dev] Remove .gitignore files from Reference Implementation ... ( http://bit.ly/1KAGbDe )

00:29:07 mod6: ah, yeah, ok good deal.

00:33:11 shinohai: How's that V coming mod6

00:33:30 mod6: nice, actually.

00:34:13 mod6: working on some cleanup. toposort seems to be doing what it should be, press is testing well so far (manual tests), currently writing the help info etc.

00:35:13 mod6: i perhaps wanna touch on some colorization of the graphviz graph nodes depending on the signatory, we'll see.

00:35:27 asciilifeform: mod6: neato!

00:36:02 mod6: I also am considering adding a "pull" or "sync" method. something to check your local vpatches against whats available at the foundation.

00:36:05 mod6: we'll see.

00:36:10 mod6: asciilifeform: yeah, it's coming along!

00:36:51 mod6: oh, and I was gonna add a bunch of cucumber tests to exercise the V code to ensure correctness. haven't even started that part yet.

00:36:54 mod6: but shouldn't be too bad.

00:37:31 *: shinohai will test cukes as necessary ....

00:38:15 mod6: i mean cucumber with perl is better than with java or ruby. might be nice with python, but again, that's not exactly my thing yet.

00:38:47 mod6: so maybe someday, we'll have the gherkin with a python backend.

00:39:26 mod6: walking my way through alf's toposort taught me a few things though.

00:40:03 shinohai: Fuck java

00:40:07 mod6: including that there is no actual way to have an else case for a for loop in perl. lol.

00:40:25 mod6: so i had to kinda make my own magic there. was simple with an added flag + check.

00:41:04 BingoBoingo: !up chatquack

00:41:35 shinohai: I'm willing to bet you need 13 libraries just to echo "hello world" in java.

00:42:31 mod6: well, arguably there are a variety of classes involved there. but you can make that happen with just the standard development kit, no special imports of packages are required.

00:42:37 mod6: but yeah, java sucks.

00:45:54 BingoBoingo: Java not only sucks, it is owned by evil

00:46:49 mod6: no arguments there

00:46:57 trinque: unblinking, eyebrow-less evil

00:50:23 mircea_popescu: gas chamber kek

00:50:35 asciilifeform: gasenwagen!

00:51:05 BingoBoingo: <asciilifeform> gasenwagen! << Tis the People's Wagen nao

00:51:48 mod6: The National Razor had a better ring to it.

01:00:36 mircea_popescu: i haven't read bitcointalk in like years, but hey, i tend to read stuff people link here. and in that thread, iCEBREAKER dude is fucking breaking 'em.

01:00:41 mircea_popescu: "Sure, go ahead and "challenge gatekeepers" with your TOR blacklists and awesome ~0% of network mining power.

01:00:41 mircea_popescu: To the proposal of "XT?" the community overwhelmingly responded "NACK" (cite: xtnodes.com). So regardless of your fact-free preference-tailored extreme minority opinion, the debate is over, and was won on inherency take-outs + presumption (not to mention solvency and the a priori 'FUCK HEARN AND THE CORE DEV HE RODE IN ON' deontological imperative).

01:00:41 mircea_popescu: "Shackles of the BIP?"

01:00:42 mircea_popescu: Oh right, the 1MB cap is exactly like slavery days. Got it. That's not offensive at all. And neither are your first world armchair claims of resistance against censorship. You and your exorbitantly privileged critique of theymos' moderation wouldn't last a day in China, where real censorship exists.

01:00:46 mircea_popescu: Could you possibly be anymore self-righteous and self-regarding, while simultaneously self-pitying?

01:00:49 mircea_popescu: For very good reasons, XT got #REKT, and all the pretentious undergraduate Marxist pomo jargon in the universe won't help it be anything but a colossal failure."

01:00:52 mircea_popescu: is the guy even here ?

01:02:14 shinohai: I've never seen him, but I found it pretty nifty he mentioned #b-a

01:02:23 mircea_popescu: if anyone still got an account somehow, see if he maybe wants to write for qntra ? i could read more of that

01:02:29 mircea_popescu: but i doubt i'll be doing more tardstalk.

01:02:46 asciilifeform: link?

01:03:07 mircea_popescu: shinohai> https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1181693.msg12505384#msg12505384 <<< someone mentions bitcoin-assets lawgs

01:03:09 assbot: Bitcoin XT Post Mortem - Group Discussion ... ( http://bit.ly/1MJP0RK )

01:03:13 asciilifeform: ty

01:03:27 BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> is the guy even here ? << My vague recollection is back in the day he wasn't an MPOE-PR fan. Usagi critic sure but though MPOE was just a differnet evil. Then again I am drunk early and memory flawed.

01:04:00 mircea_popescu: i dun recall him ever running a "business"

01:04:09 BingoBoingo: Neither do I

01:04:24 mircea_popescu: well other than that who the fuck cares.

01:04:31 BingoBoingo: I think him or someone with a similar name tried to sell a big bar-o-silver for LTC

01:05:09 mircea_popescu: "bar of silver" and big somehow don't go together. what's silver, like a pizza an ounce ?

01:05:17 mircea_popescu: how big was this bar, like obama standing ?

01:05:36 BingoBoingo: I've seen the nick brg444 before though. Fuck you brg444 get in assWoT already. Also don't think I didn't see you shilling for 21's Po-Po plug.

01:06:09 BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: Prolly 10 oz or so. Less than a steak but more than the average dick.

01:06:27 mircea_popescu: eh, rubber duckling's more than the average dick.

01:06:45 BingoBoingo: Are you sure, with China ascendant and all...

01:06:52 asciilifeform: unrelatedly, ada is melting my brain.

01:07:56 mircea_popescu: lol. btw, anyone remember the rubber duckling incident ?

01:08:06 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform is that in a good way ? like, licking it on a cone ?

01:08:12 asciilifeform: mno

01:08:16 asciilifeform: in the bad way.

01:08:36 asciilifeform: like reactor.

01:09:52 shinohai: I wish mpoe-pr was still there, btctalk was worth reading then.

01:10:11 shinohai: She can certainly chew 'em up and spit 'em back out.

01:10:45 *: asciilifeform wishes there existed some other typesafe, statically typed language usable on a microcontroller

01:12:56 BingoBoingo: <shinohai> I wish mpoe-pr was still there, btctalk was worth reading then. << I think most people here value her health too much. When she left the Fillipenis wasn't so bad. Now it is pretty much all aids

01:13:53 BingoBoingo: General question, did http://qntra.net/2015/09/fda-regulatory-overreach-allows-price-gouging/ seem to accurately capture the hypocrisy?

01:13:53 assbot: FDA Regulatory Overreach Allows Price Gouging | Qntra ... ( http://bit.ly/1LxEX0H )

01:16:25 cazalla: do americans actually pay such prices or is it simply a case where end user pays $8.80 (as we do here) and the goverment/tax payer is fucked for the rest of it?

01:16:27 mircea_popescu: it's wordy and weak.

01:16:55 asciilifeform: cazalla: you get ZIP from usg unless you are part of the blessedly indigent class

01:16:59 mircea_popescu: granted it's a very difficult task because the issue is medicine (which is wordy by default) and the proposed jump somewhat distant.

01:17:11 BingoBoingo: Ah

01:17:23 cazalla: so what benefit is there in raising the price if no end user can actually buy it?

01:17:26 asciilifeform: cazalla: this normally requires - at the minimum - multiple years of tax receipts proving indigence

01:18:01 BingoBoingo: cazalla: Well consider before the price spike in question med was going for $13.50 per pill in the US and about $0.035 elsewhere

01:18:18 asciilifeform: cazalla: 'buy' is a flexible concept in usa. if you have 'health insurance', it gets milked out to its theoretical maximum, and then you pay (if you have lines of credit, will max'em out naturally)

01:18:27 BingoBoingo: cazalla: Obola care usually pays now

01:18:31 mircea_popescu: cazalla insurance has no option but to pay.

01:18:43 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: this is demonstrably and abundantly false

01:18:49 mircea_popescu: understand the evil of a 3 party system. the user has no say. the doctor decides if it's needed or not, doesn't care about the cost.

01:18:54 mircea_popescu: insurance can not overrule doctor.

01:19:14 asciilifeform: often enough, 'insurer' (misnomer, these are not insurance co. in the traditional sense) will find a way to avoid paying

01:19:16 mircea_popescu: as a result, they'll be billed for a few millions, and react to it, gouging insurance prices by a few billion in a half decade.

01:19:21 BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> cazalla insurance has no option but to pay. << WIth the added danger that until Obola care came to all sorts of present evil could be vetoed by actual businesses

01:19:31 asciilifeform: or at the very least leave the diseased chump with $maxint bill

01:19:39 mircea_popescu: the societal cost of that cocky 20yo handpuppet is comparable to what obama costs.

01:20:09 BingoBoingo: <asciilifeform> often enough, 'insurer' (misnomer, these are not insurance co. in the traditional sense) will find a way to avoid paying << This many times "insurer" is or was payment handler for actual business's healthcare claims

01:20:15 asciilifeform: often this process takes the form of 'we will pay, but for amputation rather than treatment'

01:20:18 mircea_popescu: and this is the main problem here : for ~20 years, the president was a sort of priviledged class, allowed to burn pieces off the country.

01:20:31 mircea_popescu: but apparently the situation is degrading and every entry level project manager can do this now.

01:20:49 mircea_popescu: or, to quote an anonymous derp, "are we comfortable with regulation introduced by a guy named bob ?"

01:21:12 BingoBoingo: Recent corporate medicine where available has been move employees to medicaid so state feels the pain instead.

01:21:33 mircea_popescu: which the feds love, let the state be bled dry.

01:21:43 BingoBoingo: By "states" often happy to pay deficit

01:21:46 asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: understand, no one is eligible for 'medicaid' until whatever earthly goods he had, are properly and documentedly vultured away

01:21:57 asciilifeform: e.g., if you had title to a house, it is to be sold

01:22:07 asciilifeform: all of the 'turkey-buying dollars' are to be vacuumed up.

01:22:10 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform we're talking employees here.

01:22:12 mircea_popescu: what goods.

01:22:19 BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Nah. Only for the retired. Incompletely employed eligible by default nao.

01:22:51 asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: ever hear of 'medical bankruptcy' ?

01:22:54 mircea_popescu: the last "normal american" that had any value left in him was ambushed on a highway cca 2003.

01:22:55 BingoBoingo: No income retiree with assets must first bleed much before medicaid.

01:22:56 asciilifeform: it is entirely sop in usa.

01:23:15 BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Sure. I've done the chapter 7 thing myself about 5 years ago.

01:24:20 mircea_popescu: let's play the "guess the size of today's apache log for fraudsters".

01:24:33 asciilifeform: 300 MB

01:24:45 BingoBoingo: The obamacare new medicaid rules keep wealth tests for the retired and prevent incomes above X from medicaid, but low earners of nearly any net wealth get new medicaid

01:24:56 BingoBoingo: 173.47 MB

01:24:58 mircea_popescu: more.

01:25:04 shinohai: 500 mb

01:25:08 mircea_popescu: mmmm

01:25:08 mircea_popescu: ore.

01:25:12 BingoBoingo: 1.357 GB

01:25:17 mircea_popescu: still more.

01:25:23 mircea_popescu: it is 2.9 gb for the love of fuck.

01:25:24 BingoBoingo: 9.867 GB

01:25:27 asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: understand that 'low earner' per usg is somebody with WHOLE YEAR OF TAX RECEIPT proving such.

01:25:44 BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Once again varies by state

01:25:48 asciilifeform: as in, if i get sacked i get to starve long before could ever show up as 'low earner'

01:25:55 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform it's not for you.

01:26:00 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: no shit!

01:26:04 mircea_popescu: but otherwise, you don't have to actually file.

01:26:10 asciilifeform: no file, no handouts

01:26:17 mircea_popescu: if you've not filed tax returns for past coupla years, you're still eligible

01:26:18 mircea_popescu: aha.

01:26:27 asciilifeform: we were speaking of usg payola such as 'medicaid'

01:26:37 mircea_popescu: yes.

01:26:53 mircea_popescu: they get you for insurance fraud on top of whatever if you file later and it turns out you had moneys.

01:26:59 asciilifeform: it is strictly, strictly for registered members of the lumpen castes.

01:29:25 asciilifeform: also (elaborated for n00bs) usg's definition of 'has money' is ~strictly~ about income.

01:29:39 asciilifeform: whatever it is you blew it on, e.g., rent, is considered, in effect, discretionary

01:32:26 BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: medicaid is for everyone. It just isn't for you... yet

01:32:58 asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: by the time it is 'for me', it will consist of a complimentary cyanide

01:33:25 BingoBoingo: Prolly, but Michelle Obola will likely be president if there still is one

01:33:47 mircea_popescu: even with the very steam-punk techno-nazis cyanide was not for everyone.

01:33:58 asciilifeform: only for attendees of wagner concert !

01:34:04 mircea_popescu: aha.

01:34:18 mircea_popescu: what's wrong with strychnine

01:34:23 asciilifeform: costly.

01:34:42 mircea_popescu: cheaper than cyanide.

01:35:52 BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> what's wrong with strychnine << Occasionally results in angry hulk rather than cadaver

01:36:06 mircea_popescu: makes for great cinema!

01:36:28 BingoBoingo: Not really, Hulk movies are the super hero movies that don't make money

01:36:54 asciilifeform: folks outside of usadom rarely know just how much the handouts, 'safety nets', and other socialisms ~strictly~ exclude the non-lumpens.

01:37:41 mircea_popescu: well, people of the nordic system sorta-expect nordic system.

01:37:57 asciilifeform: recall tlp's piece re: how a history of normal employment is more or less a kiss of death in consideration for 'disability' pension

01:38:53 mircea_popescu: i would expect that probably changed.

01:39:04 mircea_popescu: no other explanation for all the third gender survival observed in the fields.

01:39:14 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: they are proper lumpens

01:39:44 asciilifeform: i.e. people who have never shown any symptoms of earning one's keep

01:39:56 asciilifeform: of having any inclination to.

01:40:11 mircea_popescu: this is not so. you're not born obese.

01:40:14 mircea_popescu: gotta work for it.

01:40:37 asciilifeform: obese or whatever other p.t. barnum deformity alone doesn't cut it.

01:40:47 BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> i would expect that probably changed. << Only really changed in healthcare and only in a way that ascii must eat shoes for a year to be lumpen

01:41:08 asciilifeform: add several years for 'processing'

01:41:43 mircea_popescu: so how do the fatties survive ?

01:42:21 BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> so how do the fatties survive ? << Two years of leaching off family and then "blackface"

01:42:26 asciilifeform: partly on handouts from blood relations, parasitism of sex partners (yes)

01:42:48 mircea_popescu: i dunno...

01:42:49 asciilifeform: very occasionally (at least for white usians) - meagre payola from state ('food stamps', etc)

01:43:15 mircea_popescu: dude... a girl that weighs what 5 weigh costs what 10 cost.

01:43:49 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: costs how ?

01:44:17 asciilifeform: recall that in usa, the most calorific 'food' (i cannot bring myself to call it food) is hands-down the cheapest.

01:44:21 BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> dude... a girl that weighs what 5 weigh costs what 10 cost. << Ah, if girl can pregnancy.

01:45:23 BingoBoingo: <asciilifeform> to the point that living on the dole virtually guarantees candidacy for that freakshow forum BingoBoingo reads << This 600-800 calories to the dollar is not an unrealistic target in USia

01:48:23 mircea_popescu: o.O

01:48:24 asciilifeform: there is a good reason why the traditional stereotype in usa is that 'poor' goes with 'fat'

01:48:29 BingoBoingo: ^

01:48:30 asciilifeform: and vice-versa

01:48:42 asciilifeform: they are almost inextricably linked.

01:48:52 mircea_popescu: pretty good, i think i barely get 5% of that.

01:49:09 mircea_popescu: srsly, a complete meal out of $3 ? no wonder inflation figures are down.

01:49:14 asciilifeform: if they could get people to run on diesel, they would.

01:49:17 mircea_popescu: better than thr 60s.

01:49:49 asciilifeform: 'complete meal' is not the best description here.

01:50:17 asciilifeform: it staves off caloric starvation, but just about everyone who makes a habit of these 'meals' suffers from one or more kinds of malnutrition.

01:50:31 BingoBoingo: <asciilifeform> it staves off caloric starvation, but just about everyone who makes a habit of these 'meals' suffers from one or more kinds of malnutrition. << Yhis

01:51:11 punkman: how much pork does $3 buy?

01:51:12 BingoBoingo: In a McDonalds burger most calories come from the bun and its added sugar

01:51:19 BingoBoingo: <punkman> how much pork does $3 buy? << Little

01:52:00 mircea_popescu: i very much doubt there's any meat in mcdonalds&co.

01:52:10 asciilifeform: most of the calories these folks take in come from corn fructose.

01:52:11 mircea_popescu: looks to me a suspiciously like spraypainted soy

01:52:22 asciilifeform: which is added to literally everything where this is physically possible.

01:52:25 *: mircea_popescu goes off to verify this strange.

01:52:55 BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> i very much doubt there's any meat in mcdonalds&co. << WHen I was there the actual "beef patty" seemed to be all beef though small. Just what part of beef...

01:53:34 asciilifeform: by crown fiat.

01:54:00 BingoBoingo: Now "Taco Bell" has a new flagship item selling for ~1 dollar/400 calories mostly textured soy protein, corn flour, and other corn

01:54:21 mircea_popescu: anywhay, let's say it's ~30 per lb.

01:54:25 mircea_popescu: if memory serves

01:54:27 asciilifeform: the other thing folks outside of usaschwitz sometimes do not know, is that the cost of the materials of the 'food' is only half the story.

01:54:40 asciilifeform: there is also the fact of the 'fast' in 'fast food'

01:55:25 asciilifeform: i.e. the victi^H^H^H^Hchum^H^H^customers are typically folks to whom ~preparing a meal~ is a foreign concept

01:55:31 BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> how the fuck do you price this shit now ? << same way sub saharan africans can buy anti-malarials that before gouging cost $13.50 a pop in USia

01:55:38 asciilifeform: many do not even have access to something normal person would recognize as a kitchen.

02:02:39 mircea_popescu: phf cashier was trying to suck cock for sammiches.

02:02:49 *: asciilifeform pays similar

02:02:50 phf: mircea_popescu: that was my impression too

02:02:54 BingoBoingo: HFCS wouldn't even be a big issue if it wasn't for the fact that fructuse doesn't respond to insulin

03:18:40 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: one example of something which Must Die is 'subkeys'

03:18:43 asciilifeform: it is an atrocity.

03:18:55 asciilifeform: one modulus, one key, as the gods intended.

03:19:29 asciilifeform: the other major atrocity is the fingerprint (yes).

03:21:22 asciilifeform: the third and all-encompassing atrocity of rfc2440/4880 is the idiot cruft pertaining to 'new' vs 'old' packet formats, the magical constants specifying largely antiquated block ciphers and hash algos, etc.

03:21:31 asciilifeform: more or less the whole document.

03:23:11 asciilifeform: another annoyance is the inclusion of zlib.

03:23:36 asciilifeform: yes, there is a 'do i want zlib' flag in pubkey, but EVERYONE here has it set.

03:24:08 asciilifeform: traditional whizzzdum is that it somehow improves seek00rity by making the plaintext less structured.

03:24:17 asciilifeform: (except that it very clearly adds structure of another kind)

03:24:25 asciilifeform: aaand is an attack vector of its own.

03:25:08 asciilifeform: (not only in the added complexity of a zlib decoder, but in the fact that a message's actual length remains unknown until your start shitting it out)

03:26:40 asciilifeform: i could go on. and on.

15:25:17 shinohai: Nice davout :D

15:25:58 jurov: is the RFC confidentially public?

15:26:43 jurov: (see first page)

15:26:46 jurov: reminded me of the MP license :D

15:27:24 jurov: speaking of him, surely you have cleartext version... << davout

15:27:48 davout: jurov: of the RFC? no

15:28:46 davout: the idea is mainly to document stuff that's pretty obvious in order for the coinbase et al. derps to be unable to later claim invenshuns

15:29:12 davout: and we had it in a drawer anyway, so might as well publish

15:29:49 shinohai: I loathe coinbase so 3 cheers to davout

15:30:11 jurov: so you don't actually implement it?

15:31:24 davout: jurov: of course the idea is to actually implement it

15:31:41 davout: but to do that you need another liquidity source on the other end of the tunnel

15:31:51 jurov: well then.. why explicitly rely on HTTP(S)?

15:32:14 jurov: it would work fine with gpg mpex-style

15:32:30 davout: that also implements it, so publishing the RFC also communicates that serious liquidity sources are welcome to knock on our door

15:32:49 davout: jurov: where does it say https?

15:32:53 davout: the oauth thing?

15:33:15 jurov: it says "POST method" which is HTTP-only thing

15:34:03 jurov: and yes, with GPG the oauth is unnecessary

15:34:09 davout: ah yeah, http APIs are assumed

15:35:22 davout: you're probably right it's not really necessary

21:29:38 phf: ascii_field, mircea_popescu, et al: i've been experimenting with idea of trusted nodes in bitcoind. so far: address has levels of trust, ultimate, trusted and untrusted. adding an address with -connect gives it ultimate trust, with -addnode makes it trusted, otherwise (reported by other nodes, random connections, etc.) are untrusted. nodes have the same level of trust as their addresses. trusted nodes (i.e. both t. and ultimate) are allowed

21:29:38 phf: to misbehave, idle however long and send data as large as they want. what's not implemented: prioritizing trusted nodes over others during node selection: you might still lose connection by natural means, in which case -addnode nodes will be dropped, and a standard node selection mechanism is used. the patch so far is here http://paste.lisp.org/display/155710. i'm thinking that ultimate vs. trusted distinction might be unnecessary. i would

21:37:20 assbot: Logged on 30-08-2015 15:45:26; asciilifeform: ;;later tell mircea_popescu (corrected) dulap still behind; i had a thought that the very possibility of this problem is an atrocious idiocy - why should an infrastructural node (so0opernoude!!!) rely on the whims of wild animals to learn latest blocks? we need the 'nobles'-never-disconnect table.

21:39:20 phf: one way it might help with ascii's problem specifically though is that your client will patiently wait for ascii's node, even though there might be periods of time where it would otherwise be completely unresponsive.

21:43:32 asciilifeform: !up ascii_field

21:43:57 phf: -connect based nodes in large avoid this problems because there's a mainloop that keeps adding same -connect supplied addresses over and over again, so even if elsewhere it's decided to drop the node, it'll be added and reconnected again on the next iteration. never the less a connect node can still be banned for misbehaving, which is something that his patch prevents from happening

21:44:01 ascii_field: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=24-09-2015#1285009 << trust without public key authentication of ENTIRE transmission is a waste of time !!

21:44:01 assbot: Logged on 24-09-2015 21:29:38; phf: ascii_field, mircea_popescu, et al: i've been experimenting with idea of trusted nodes in bitcoind. so far: address has levels of trust, ultimate, trusted and untrusted. adding an address with -connect gives it ultimate trust, with -addnode makes it trusted, otherwise (reported by other nodes, random connections, etc.) are untrusted. nodes have the same level of trust as their addresses. trusted nodes (i.e. bot

21:44:45 ascii_field: will say this again, 'trusting' ip p.q.r.s is IDIOCY

21:44:53 ascii_field: usg can and DOES mitm transmissions.

21:45:08 punkman: you could make bans on "trusted" nodes expire sooner

21:45:30 ascii_field: waste of time.

21:47:17 phf: punkman: that specific loop can be closed much easier by checking for -connect during misbehave report and bailing

21:47:52 ascii_field: phf: all this will do is that you will waste cpu cycles on peers who are getting packetdropped by usg

21:48:20 ascii_field: (all of the mitm against my nodes has taken the form of vaguely plausibly-deniable packet dropping and delay)

21:48:58 ascii_field: strategic, incidentally, in that it did not trigger 'misbehave' listing on my end

21:50:10 phf: misbehave is only triggered when counterparty sends malformed, but still recognisable packets, so that would be a much more noticeable attack

21:51:29 ascii_field: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=24-09-2015#1284966 << headers-only sync is not sync. the phoundation client is not a bitcoin implementation and hasn't been for ages. on the other hand, a box that takes 3 weeks to sync FROM EATBLOCK ON DISK has something seriously wrong with it.

21:51:29 assbot: Logged on 24-09-2015 19:30:42; gernika: Friend is claiming he can do a full sync in 6-8 hours using the phoundation client (non-ssd), while it took my OpenBSD box 3 weeks using eatblock. Not sure what I'm doing wrong.

21:51:45 ascii_field: get a real computer somewhere ?

21:52:13 phf: where's packet dropping and delay results in a no-consequences disconnect, similar to that "no activity in first 60 seconds"

21:52:20 ascii_field: aha

21:52:30 ascii_field: and, importantly, wasted time

21:52:38 ascii_field: as no useful activity can take place while this hangs

21:52:50 ascii_field: because the whole thing was written by the profoundly retarded

21:54:55 phf: well, the patch gives special status to ips that were explicitly provided. if you're being mitm'd, your only recourse is operator intervention, the goal of the patch was to ensure that your recourse does not automatically become "use random shmoe"

21:55:33 ascii_field: the correct recourse is crypto.

21:55:50 ascii_field: and for 'trusted' peers, in the above sense, to be ones where all comms in both directions are authenticated.

21:55:56 ascii_field: as in rsa-signed.

21:57:28 BingoBoingo: !up i-dont-know2

21:57:37 ascii_field: mircea_popescu once alluded to a dirty ad-hoc implementation of this by chinese operators, where nodes had vpn links to one another

21:57:48 gernika: ascii_field Thought it was real - 32 GB ecc ram, opteron 4226.

21:57:49 ascii_field: but that is not an adult answer.

21:58:01 ascii_field: gernika: and you were syncing from what?

21:58:10 ascii_field: as in, where did the blocks fed to 'eatblock' come from ?

21:59:26 gernika: both yours and mp's nodes.

21:59:35 ascii_field: in real time ?

21:59:49 ascii_field: i am asking ~specifically~ how the thing was put together

22:00:06 ascii_field: the correct way to use eatblock is with dumpblock coming from an already synced LOCAL node.

22:00:29 ascii_field: this does NOT take 3 weeks on my hardware.

22:00:37 ascii_field: more like 3 days.

22:02:53 gernika: Right. So I made it to 368xxx and got stuck on the large block syncing from one of your nodes over the network. I then (probably) had a bad shutdown and corrupted the db. I then used eatblock to sync from what I had on disk up to that point.

22:03:08 ascii_field: stuck?

22:03:16 ascii_field: as in, didn't have the bdb locks fix patch applied ?

22:03:22 gernika: wedged - due to not having the patch yes

22:03:29 ascii_field: then burn the whole thing & start over

22:03:40 ascii_field: srsly

22:04:08 ascii_field: let me guess, of the 3 weeks, most of the time was spent wedged ?

22:05:22 gernika: The node was not on the network, it was just eating from disk. It did not appear wedged, just processing one block after another.

22:06:28 ascii_field: but was the entire blockchain already present on disk to be eaten?

22:06:41 ascii_field: what i am asking is, did it at any point spend time waiting for an edible block to appear on disk.

22:09:53 gernika: Yes it did. I did not dump all.dat files at once. I would dump one, eat through it (in about 24 hours), then dump the next.

22:10:51 ascii_field: how much time spent on the dumps ?

22:10:57 ascii_field: (as distinct from the eating)

22:11:07 gernika: a couple of minutes.

22:12:00 ascii_field: the other important question is whether the node being synced was also accessing the net at the time

22:12:13 ascii_field: (eatblock is a locking operation)

22:14:54 gernika: It was started like this bitcoind -myip=x.x.x.x -caneat -datadir=/home/gernika/.bitcoin-8-14/

22:19:51 phf: gernika: you know if the addr db empty? if you did a connect with that node at any point, it'll have a populated address database and start connecting immediately on startup

22:20:42 phf: i don't have intuition for complete eatblock time, but 3 weeks does sound like surprisingly long time, even with all the checks enabled

22:23:12 gernika: It might not have been empty. That said, I didn't see the noise in the logs I would expect to see if it were connected to another node.

22:23:21 phf: ah, word

22:25:43 shinohai: phf what are u running again?
