00:04:54 pete_dushenski: singapore is now apple without steve jobs

00:05:38 mircea_popescu: well, going to china anyway

00:06:40 mircea_popescu: http://log1.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=24-03-2015#1067669 << quite. except, there's a difference between understanding and controlling.

00:06:40 assbot: Logged on 24-03-2015 13:45:18; nubbins`: put another way: those who are unable to judge the character/nature of others are more likely to wish for escape, and their disability follows them to their new life, where they make the same sort of mistakes they'd make at home

00:08:35 mircea_popescu: http://log1.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=24-03-2015#1067693 "You're not seeing "a kid" that "made" "X money" with "a story". You're seeing an economic process. It's an ad. It converts to some degree, like any ad."

00:08:35 assbot: Logged on 24-03-2015 13:56:10; asciilifeform: reminds me of how when clinton was half-heartedly prosecuting microshit for antitrust violations, some 'think tank' (cato? i forget) had a 'microsoft defense fund' that the public was invited to contribute to !

00:10:52 pete_dushenski: "Get ready to ride in style Singapore, we’ve added supercars to the Uber platform. Starting this Saturday, March 21st, you will be able to request a Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder or Maserati GranTurismo Coupe to come pick you up." << yew moves out, uber moves in.

00:11:02 mircea_popescu: buncha guys broke a coupla 17 yos out of juvenile detention. a

00:11:12 mircea_popescu: amusingly, the guy they were actually there to break out had already escapeds.

00:12:01 pete_dushenski: funkenstein_ did they feature the peri-air ?

00:12:42 mircea_popescu: http://log1.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=24-03-2015#1067737 << so wait, the case can only close if man = bad, woman = good ? no other outcome available ?

00:12:42 assbot: Logged on 24-03-2015 14:22:59; asciilifeform: 'Longo said the case is suspended, not closed. He said the fact that investigators could not find evidence ?doesn?t mean that something terrible didn?t happen to Jackie.?'

00:13:09 funkenstein_: pete_dushenski, no i hadn't heard of it

00:13:13 mircea_popescu: why would anyone partake ? "i am not taking part in your kangaroo mockery. you want to either win or flip again, i dun have time for that"

00:16:47 asciilifeform: <mircea_popescu> asciilifeform i see you got the boards delivert << aha see pics

00:16:49 trinque: #makers << my sides

00:18:50 asciilifeform: would not this problem be adequately solved with a huge slab of steel / al << i did say.

00:19:39 asciilifeform: Japanese Engineer Kills Self Harakiri-Style over Bridge Collapse << mega-respekt!!!

00:19:42 *: asciilifeform takes off hat

00:20:18 asciilifeform: office rats can't really have honor << wtf sure they can

00:20:48 asciilifeform: but then again it is rather like saying that sewer rats could read reddit (yes, the occasional iPnohe falls into a street drain.)

00:22:10 *: Adlai is starting to warm up to ada: http://archive.adaic.com/standards/83rat/html/ratl-13-03.html#13.3.2

00:22:11 assbot: ... ( http://bit.ly/1xfpE7J )

00:22:25 asciilifeform: getting scientists to donate to a honor-based system rather than to a socialism-based system will utterly restructure society << funnily orlov is 100% with this program, in his own peculiar way

00:23:04 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: ...the original dispute that created this place... << now i'm curious

00:23:07 asciilifeform: what was it.

00:23:58 asciilifeform: <jurov> these scientists need to be funded, and somehow despite mpex, this isn't happening << jurov has it, unfortunately. we are in the jungle still.

00:25:16 BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: gmaxwell's anti-porn/free-speech stance

00:25:31 BingoBoingo: !up decimation

00:25:55 decimation: asciilifeform: have you tested the boards?

00:25:57 nubbins`: or, what was it the guy tried to pass off? "the peerage"

00:26:51 asciilifeform: Adlai: starting to warm... << one of the two practically-usable programming -systems- (note, i didn't say 'languages') designed by and for thinking people

00:27:09 asciilifeform: decimation: yes, tested. see photos.

00:27:48 asciilifeform: decimation: not proper test (will have to happen in weekend) but does output visually correct results.

00:29:16 decimation: where's the pics?

00:29:45 asciilifeform: in log, 1sec

00:31:42 decimation: ah I was looking for png

00:33:12 decimation: well, it doesn't short, and has serial-ly output somewhere, these are good things

00:33:27 asciilifeform: decimation: it's a 100% analogue device, actually

00:33:37 asciilifeform: well, 99%

00:34:32 decimation: I've been thinking about building a 'geiger counter' rng like herr walker's

00:34:49 asciilifeform: not especially hard

00:35:06 asciilifeform: ty mircea_popescu

00:36:01 *: asciilifeform blew dust off pogotron and warming up

00:36:45 asciilifeform: considerably easier now that i have it booting off the lan

00:37:06 asciilifeform: ('i want too!' -- then see listserv)

00:37:43 decimation: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com//?date=23-03-2015#1064748 < yeah, this might make more sense - a conventional drone with missile. the important point is that these would be loitering at random radii and altitudes, making apriori 'air defense' clearance difficult

00:37:43 assbot: Logged on 23-03-2015 06:08:33; ben_vulpes: <decimation> I just thought of a brilliant anti-'area denial' (to usg term) weapon system. imagine a small turboprop uav ... that can drop its wings and turn into kerosene rocket << why bother with expensive turbomachinery? just use solid propellants...

00:38:08 decimation: asciilifeform: did you get the remote u-boot console working?

00:38:23 asciilifeform: decimation: i did, long ago, and replaced with real serial console

00:38:40 asciilifeform: which is considerably more pleasant to use

00:38:48 decimation: i imagine so

00:40:56 BingoBoingo: ^ latest in tradition of people doing this

00:41:28 asciilifeform: lol, CONFIG_SERIAL_MPSC_CONSOLE

00:41:43 asciilifeform: ^ not in buildroot menus, because tards

00:42:03 asciilifeform: or alternatively, 'quit believing the docs'

00:42:52 asciilifeform: hint to others: NEVER 'make clean' on a working buildroot cross-compilation tree

00:42:58 asciilifeform: nukes the toolchain (incl. gcc) too.

00:43:08 asciilifeform: that's another hour or three that i will have no useful output.

00:43:33 decimation: lol is that a freebsd feature?

00:43:40 asciilifeform: linux

00:43:42 decimation: ah

00:44:15 assbot: The Manux operating system ... ( http://bit.ly/1GRtQuu )

00:44:43 decimation: it's an utterly crippled version of 'linux' with all the crud stripped out

00:44:47 asciilifeform: 'Withstanding zero-day attacks in userspace' << by definition impossible

00:44:50 decimation: it also is apparently nonfunctional

00:44:56 decimation: "Uh, many. It's currently text-only, its IP stack isn't functionnal and will have to be partly rewritten, privilege-checking isn't implemented, it can't handle more than one hard drive..."

00:44:58 asciilifeform: very bad phrasing right off the bat

00:45:04 asciilifeform: can't speak for anything else in there

00:45:21 asciilifeform: appears to be vaguely minix-flavoured

00:45:56 decimation: my daughter loves to watch Кро́т cartoons now

00:46:20 asciilifeform: decimation: i never saw the animated one. only had the book

00:46:31 decimation: heh I didn't realize there was a book

00:50:29 decimation: somewhat related, apparently you can order books, music, dvds from amazon.de for 3eur + 3eur per kg shipping (to the us)

00:53:01 asciilifeform: woah that was fast

00:53:03 asciilifeform: (build finished)

00:53:15 asciilifeform: still no dice though. no console output

00:54:09 asciilifeform: found shitgnomery though

01:55:42 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform yeah you did say, and yeah i guess pretty much everyone honestly trying has figured out the same thing, if not necessarily apt to express it.

01:55:46 mircea_popescu: re orlov.

02:06:00 mircea_popescu: this is why i don't like reading orlov. the propaganda angle doesn't bother me as much, but the millitant, sheer ignorance does.

02:06:13 mircea_popescu: find a fucking count that was allegiant to a duke in the entire history of feudalism.

02:06:24 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 10805 @ 0.00022068 = 2.3844 BTC [+]

02:06:36 mircea_popescu: i am willing to bet, on the strength of that diagram, that his disneyland notions of "feudalism" preclude him even knowing WHEN in time this happened

02:07:10 mircea_popescu: protip : no, it's not 1550, that's the cinquecento in italy, feudalism is already dead and rotting everywhere.

02:07:20 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: he's using a ru dictionary, betcah

02:07:23 asciilifeform: *betcha

02:07:25 mircea_popescu: even so.

02:07:44 mircea_popescu: russia did not exist. the various duchies were not even feudal ffs.

02:07:53 asciilifeform: aha but the man's dictionary

02:08:06 asciilifeform: duke outranks count there, so.

02:08:53 thestringpuller: cyrptofeudalism is awesome

02:08:53 mircea_popescu: "outranks" is a purely courtly consideration

02:08:59 mircea_popescu: "what order do they follow the monarch in"

02:09:09 mircea_popescu: by the time anyone cares about this feudalism was long defeated.

02:09:26 mircea_popescu: in any case : counts as in, counts palatine, counts of the hre, etc, were sovereign.

02:09:39 mircea_popescu: dukes did not by and large exist, unless you mean dux, which was a leader of fucking cataphracts

02:10:14 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: he meant герцог

02:10:16 mircea_popescu: marsh lord, what is known as marquis, actually outranked counts at court, chiefly because being the lord of a marsh he had much more legal power than the head of settled land

02:10:17 asciilifeform: this is pretty clear

02:10:19 asciilifeform: hertzog

02:10:20 mircea_popescu: and on and on and fucking on it goes.

02:10:29 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform that's a count

02:10:34 asciilifeform: nope

02:10:39 asciilifeform: граф

02:10:43 mod6: ok im gonna stop this thing, rebuild one more time for good measure, then will create diffs & publish.

02:10:49 asciilifeform: see i can tell where he got it.

02:10:54 mircea_popescu: grof ? that's a hungarian/polish count.

02:11:03 asciilifeform: and guess what other kind.

02:11:12 mircea_popescu: hey, more power to you, but really...

02:11:40 mircea_popescu: "here's what i remember of this bad translation of a phenomena by some people who didn't live it, and who are so far from me culturally i in turn have no idea. let's make an infographic and educate reddit."

02:11:41 mircea_popescu: pssssshhh

02:11:51 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i'll add that this is (or was) sop in ru world

02:12:07 mircea_popescu: ima insist this is no path to understanding

02:12:09 asciilifeform: sorta like those 'c' programmers who #define'd themselves BEGIN and END blocks

02:12:17 mircea_popescu: it may be a path to "respek" an autoritah

02:12:39 asciilifeform: it's an ill habit, sorta like the elaborate rules for mistransliterating german and english

02:12:41 asciilifeform: (in ru)

02:12:59 decimation: landgraf

02:12:59 mircea_popescu: aha

02:13:15 decimation: ^graf who reports directly to emperor

02:13:16 mircea_popescu: decimation landgraf aka margrave aka march lord is a post-feudalist construct

02:13:41 mircea_popescu: "about half the power a count used to have back when the counts of belgium dominated france, for to protect the country borders"

02:13:59 mircea_popescu: (march = marsh = border, in this understanding. strips of marginal and thus uninhabited lands)

02:15:02 mircea_popescu: anyway. the peak of feudalism is around the peak of things like the tournoi as a public sport.

02:15:13 mircea_popescu: it was ending just as the hansa was coming into its own.

02:15:14 *: asciilifeform thought that this was reasonably well known

02:15:20 decimation: The German titles of Landgraf, Markgraf, and Pfalzgraf bei Rhein are in the same class of ranks as Herzog ("duke") and above the rank of a Graf ("count").

02:15:53 mircea_popescu: decimation before long you'll be looking into subtle distinctions such as between "king of germany" and "king in germany"

02:16:32 decimation: Herr Fredrick took the "of" for himself

02:17:23 mircea_popescu: aha

02:17:50 mircea_popescu: but basically, feudalism and metalwork almost look as a zero sum game : as the latter develops the former fades

02:17:55 mircea_popescu: (in favour of the centralised state)

02:18:12 mircea_popescu: in NO CASE was feudalism replaced by capitalism tho.

02:18:51 mircea_popescu: this is like saying bows were replaced by submachine guns. well... no. at absolutely no point had people using bows encountered people using submachine guns.

02:19:04 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i can tell he's using the su version of capitalism (it being, 'what is left when you subtract stone age + feudalism + communism from the cosmic background hiss)

02:19:06 mircea_popescu: perhaps an argument can be brought for places like sicily cca 1930, but it is still very tenuous.

02:19:44 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform the problem with using a language is that you're stuck using it according to itself tho. this is like, orlov horribly mauled a teenaged girl and you're like "well clearly the bear thought her cunt's salmon."

02:19:51 mircea_popescu: this may be true, but the girl's still pretty badly bloodied.

02:20:03 asciilifeform: or, less crackpottishly, the idea of ascendancy of the merchant class probably equals capitalism in his head

02:20:16 mircea_popescu: the merchant class was ascendant cca 1300!

02:21:31 mircea_popescu: sort of a rehash of napoleonic conflicts.

02:24:02 mircea_popescu: for most of the industrial revolution, late 1600s to early 1900s, this view was exactly not held.

02:24:21 mircea_popescu: moreover, as late as during ww2, the west thought the war is mostly about preventing exactly that.

They offered to lend Britain at least $3 billion dollars after the War, in return for which Britain would walk away from the Bretton Woods Conference. Clarke and others in the British Treasury wanted to pursue this idea. But Keynes would

02:27:44 decimation: have none of it. ... Because he wanted to be known as the man who overthrew the gold standard and replaced it with a new, rational, managed international monetary system.

04:17:35 asciilifeform: 4) start bitcoind (in reset death loop)

04:17:54 asciilifeform: it is also of great importance to blink the correct colour led!

04:18:02 mircea_popescu: aha

04:18:03 nubbins`: yah!

04:18:04 asciilifeform: or else how is operator to know what becomes of his node

04:18:10 asciilifeform: maybe disk is dead

04:18:14 asciilifeform: maybe net connection dead

04:18:16 nubbins`: have the eject button send us a message on irc or something

04:18:28 asciilifeform: nubbins`: pogo4 has no buttons

04:19:04 nubbins`: ah, i thought the purple logo'd one did

04:21:10 trinque: up to the operator to deploy updates later?

04:21:23 asciilifeform: what updates.

04:21:30 trinque: 0.5.3.1 is perfect?

04:21:46 BingoBoingo: <trinque> 0.5.3.1 is perfect? << C doesn't do perfect

04:22:02 asciilifeform: if you must, signed updates

04:22:07 asciilifeform: but i wasn't even thinking of this.

04:22:18 asciilifeform: anyway since when do i have to decide this

04:22:34 asciilifeform: therealbitcoin chairmen, awaken

04:22:57 asciilifeform: ben_vulpes, mod6 ?

04:23:49 trinque: bet you could tell it about updates just like deedbot

04:23:57 nubbins`: asciilifeform: my pogo has an eject button :S

04:24:10 asciilifeform: nubbins`: does it actually press?

04:24:19 nubbins`: ...

04:24:35 asciilifeform: also whoever it was who marvelled (l0l) at pogo being a 32bit arm - 64bit is lunacy on a box with 128m of ram and no swap

04:24:43 asciilifeform: it just makes pointers take up 2x the space

04:24:48 nubbins`: yes

04:24:54 asciilifeform: and bloats exe by ~2 factor

04:25:32 nubbins`: granted, it doesn't *do* anything atm

04:25:33 asciilifeform: the designer made an entirely rational choice

04:25:36 nubbins`: but it's at least a real button

04:25:47 asciilifeform: nubbins`: would you care to post a photo of the unit ?

04:25:57 asciilifeform: nubbins`: because it is quite clearly different from mine

04:27:00 ben_vulpes: hm?

04:27:11 *: ben_vulpes just cracked the craptop

04:27:17 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: another ingredient, since you were making a list, is the seed list

04:27:19 nubbins`: http://mhassan.me/blog/wp-content/uploads/2012/11/pogoplug_v4_top_removed1.jpg

04:27:21 assbot: ... ( http://bit.ly/1C9p8He )

04:27:26 nubbins`: ^ that's yours, not mine

04:27:35 nubbins`: next to eth

04:27:36 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: recall how it has a gigantic seedlist consisting of mostly corpses, compiled in ?

04:28:01 asciilifeform: nubbins`: -that- button

04:28:09 nubbins`: :D

04:28:10 asciilifeform: i have it too

04:28:16 nubbins`: i had to double check

04:28:18 asciilifeform: thought yours might have had a button under the lamp

04:28:28 nubbins`: no. pressed it like 5x to make sure

04:28:42 nubbins`: i wish :/

04:28:55 nubbins`: instead you need a toothpick

04:29:18 asciilifeform: if ben_vulpes and mod6 decide that we must have an updater (signed, naturally) i suggest that the button be used to trigger it

04:29:23 asciilifeform: loading from attached storage of course

04:29:27 asciilifeform: (not the net)

04:29:57 asciilifeform: at the very minimum, development units ought to have it

04:30:10 ben_vulpes: for pogos?

04:30:21 asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: long thread re: pogo.

04:30:25 ben_vulpes: no shit.

04:30:27 nubbins`: if we end up jamming the os onto the nand, you could have it scan SD cards on insert for patches

04:30:45 ben_vulpes: since when is the pogo my project?

04:30:53 asciilifeform: nubbins`: tomorrow rootfs in nand

04:30:59 asciilifeform: the kernel i just posted, sees the nand.

04:30:59 *: nubbins` cheers

04:31:35 asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: in as far as it may end up the first battlefield deployment of 0.5.3.x - aha.

04:31:41 nubbins`: danielpbarron's project if anyone's 8)

04:32:01 nubbins`: well. alf's if anyone's !

04:32:07 ben_vulpes: ^

04:32:09 ben_vulpes: yeah, that.

04:32:14 asciilifeform: lol i cleaned a cm of dust off my pogo today.

04:32:19 BingoBoingo: !up Dannyl

04:32:22 ben_vulpes: a cm?!

04:32:22 nubbins`: far be it from me to assume ;D

04:32:45 ben_vulpes: dc air must be miserable

04:32:49 asciilifeform: nah just me

04:32:59 nubbins`: who's got pogos anyway

04:33:13 asciilifeform: i presently am sitting on no fewer than 12.

04:33:26 asciilifeform: and i think mod6 had a bunch

04:33:28 nubbins`: i'll have 3 at some point this week

04:33:33 ben_vulpes: that's a lot of dust...

04:33:35 nubbins`: dpb has at least one

04:33:41 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu iirc had some

04:33:47 ben_vulpes: ;)

04:33:47 nubbins`: hundreds!

04:34:02 asciilifeform: and possibly punkman

04:34:06 nubbins`: hmm yes

04:34:31 asciilifeform: i'm almost beginning to not-regret picking that machine

04:34:40 asciilifeform: having finally booted a reasonable linux

04:34:40 ben_vulpes: hah

04:34:46 nubbins`: i've got some nebulous plans to kit-ify these & sell em

04:34:47 ben_vulpes: you like things?

04:35:06 asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: didn't say 'like,' l0l

04:35:17 ben_vulpes: couldn't resist, boss

04:35:29 asciilifeform: nubbins` do you think you could do a print of some kind over the lid?

04:35:32 asciilifeform: or other parts of chassis

04:35:44 asciilifeform: i was considering lasering mine

04:35:54 nubbins`: some sort of vinyl sticker would be easiest/cheapest

04:36:05 asciilifeform: eh chinese

04:36:08 nubbins`: you wouldn't even need to apply the sticker yourself, people like doing that stuff

04:36:28 asciilifeform: stickers are so 10 yrs ago when we all had that gnu with horns on laptops

04:36:28 BingoBoingo: Does anyone have a python script for computing the odds of adult male of supplied height and weight versus (Y) pack of coyotes if armed with a tack hammer?

04:36:35 nubbins`: you'd want solvent inks to silkscreen on that, and yuck

04:36:46 asciilifeform: nubbins` laser then.

04:37:09 nubbins`: it's too bad the name is already stamped into the top

04:37:14 nubbins`: you could laser a byline or smth tho

04:37:24 asciilifeform: nothing a 40w laser can't fix

04:37:54 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 7399 @ 0.00021258 = 1.5729 BTC [-]

04:37:56 asciilifeform: now result might be a heap of slag where the logo was

04:37:57 nubbins`: anyone here have a lead on custom injection-molded plastics?

04:37:58 asciilifeform: but ought to try

04:37:59 nubbins`: 8D

04:38:21 asciilifeform: nubbins`: if you think pcb is expensive, try injection-molded anything.

04:38:59 nubbins`: recall fake bomb detector story, the one thing the guy always brought when he ran was the tooling

04:39:25 asciilifeform: l0l aha

04:39:35 asciilifeform: ok, quick likbez on 'buildroot'

04:39:49 asciilifeform: ben_vulpes, mod6, mircea_popescu, others :

04:40:05 asciilifeform: 'buildroot' is this mega-automaton for building cross-compiled os for routers and the like

04:40:23 asciilifeform: it builds, in this order 1) toolchain (using local gcc) for target cpu - gcc and binutils

04:40:27 asciilifeform: 2) kernel

04:40:40 mod6: <+asciilifeform> and i think mod6 had a bunch << naw, don't even own one yet.

04:40:42 asciilifeform: 3) userland (rootfs image for stuffing wherever, nand in our case)

04:40:53 asciilifeform: the thing is mega-configurable and very baroque

04:41:07 ben_vulpes: <nubbins`> ben_vulpes mod6 mircea_popescu and other interested parties: http://pastebin.com/raw.php?i=uJQDaKcz << neat

04:41:08 assbot: ... ( http://bit.ly/1C9qF0b )

04:41:21 asciilifeform: my notion, as of a month plus ago, was to bake the entire orchestra into a buildroot

04:41:30 trinque: my pogo's promised to me by the 3rd

04:41:35 asciilifeform: that is, the same crosscompiler it builds, that builds kernel etc. will also build bitcoind and its deps

04:42:06 nubbins`: ben_vulpes block=191668 !

04:42:20 asciilifeform: the result ought to be a self-contained bag of shit that, when executed on any reasonable unix, eventually churns out a set of images suitable for flashing to a 'pogo'.

04:42:50 asciilifeform: and yes, this means we freeze gcc, ulibc, etc. in time.

04:42:52 ben_vulpes: <nubbins`> mod6 i should stress that *none* of the hardening options are included in that makefile, and it really should not be used for anything other than reference << see, reference y'all

04:42:56 nubbins`: S-CBOS

04:42:59 nubbins`: i like it

04:43:10 ben_vulpes: it pins the protocol

04:43:16 asciilifeform: there we go

04:43:17 asciilifeform: ben_vulpes gets.

04:43:26 ben_vulpes: it's a subtle rapier, not a thing for use in anger.

04:43:29 ben_vulpes: leastaways no time soon.

04:43:52 asciilifeform: little secret re: 'in anger' - ada doesn't need an os...

04:44:00 asciilifeform: (got its own scheduler, aha)

04:44:09 ben_vulpes: k well write a bitcoind then shiva

04:44:18 asciilifeform: i intend to

04:44:22 asciilifeform: but this wasn't a secret, was it

04:44:51 asciilifeform: but it will be some time before anyone is faced with question of what to do with my ver.

04:44:51 ben_vulpes: don't ask me what everyone doesn't know

04:45:56 asciilifeform: i will admit that, with regards to the reference version (let's call it 'traditional') i am especially interested in a tandem-operable variant

04:46:17 ben_vulpes: tandem-operable?

04:46:27 asciilifeform: that is, one which (or, even better, its subcomponents) can be ran in lockstep with another nominally-equivalent program

04:46:36 asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: imagine you're mircea_popescu

04:46:57 ben_vulpes: i do this regularly, but in what scenario today?

04:47:00 asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: and one of the folks here (not guaranteed that it'll be me) writes a spiffy 'ab initio' bitcoind

04:47:23 trinque: right, you'll want to check them against each other before making the leap

04:47:43 trinque: if you ever actually leap

04:47:51 asciilifeform: trinque: because of the difficulty, and ultimately the very real practical limits of programmatic proof, tandem is likely our fate for many years.

04:48:04 asciilifeform: or at least the fate of truly serious folks with much to lose

04:48:13 trinque: asciilifeform: will also be useful to out any fuckery of the phoundation client later down the chain

04:48:30 asciilifeform: (i for one will happily jump with the parachute i packed for self. but my carcass isn't worth especially much)

04:49:18 ben_vulpes: i don't understand what's so special about 'tandem operable'

04:49:27 asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: good question:

04:49:30 nubbins`: there's no POSIX standard for bitcoin

04:49:35 nubbins`: 8)

04:49:46 ben_vulpes: asciilifeform: you *built* a chute?

04:49:50 asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: the implication is that various internals are accessible, and flow can be stopped

04:49:54 asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: not literally

04:50:10 asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: referring to a tradition in certain armies where men are expected to wrap own parachute

04:50:11 asciilifeform: and sign it

04:50:15 asciilifeform: before it is used

04:50:23 asciilifeform: 'i packed this. --mr grunt'

04:50:24 ben_vulpes: right.

04:50:30 ben_vulpes: gotcha.

04:50:37 asciilifeform: then, if they find a pancake, there is no question of 'whodunit'

04:51:32 ben_vulpes: <mircea_popescu> you can't postpone everything until everything else just like you can't have everything louder than everything else. << i think i found where this started

04:51:37 asciilifeform: (fwiw, my father informs me that this custom was unknown in his unit, and only expert was trusted with wrapping chutes)

04:52:24 nubbins`: whoever survived the first time they tried the signatures was deemed an expert and dispersed throughout the other units

04:52:34 ben_vulpes: hyuuu

04:54:43 asciilifeform: the photo mats randomly posted today is, incidentally, a picturesque metaphor for what we're doing.

04:57:14 ben_vulpes: ah hey check it out!

04:57:25 ben_vulpes: i get to strike #1 off the foundation todo list!

04:57:42 ben_vulpes: Goals:

04:57:43 ben_vulpes: 1. Cut a build

04:57:47 nubbins`: woop

04:58:00 ben_vulpes: asciilifeform: guess what #2 is

04:58:09 nubbins`: jam it on a pogo!

04:58:24 ben_vulpes: hey

04:58:26 ben_vulpes: you

04:58:35 *: nubbins` zips lips, raises hand

04:59:08 ben_vulpes: nubbins`?

04:59:19 nubbins`: spoke outta turn!

04:59:29 ben_vulpes: i'm calling on you lol

04:59:57 ben_vulpes: and no, it's not pogo

05:02:04 *: asciilifeform hasn't a clue

05:02:05 nubbins`: REGRESSION TESTING!

05:02:13 ben_vulpes: bastard block fix.

05:02:20 nubbins`: YEAH!

05:02:31 ben_vulpes: nubbins` pre-release regression testing is pretty dumb-dumb right now

05:02:33 ben_vulpes: build

05:02:35 nubbins`: ha

05:02:35 ben_vulpes: sync with mainnet

05:02:44 ben_vulpes: send

05:02:50 ben_vulpes: well, send *to*

05:02:53 asciilifeform: eh i know it isn't 'sexy' but don't forget the seed list.

05:02:55 ben_vulpes: then send *from*

05:03:03 asciilifeform: the one that's in there now is unusable.

05:03:13 ben_vulpes: asciilifeform: right hang on let me diddle this text for a second

05:03:15 nubbins`: we'll need more seeds

05:03:21 asciilifeform: and did the dns seed snip ever get merged ?

05:03:25 ben_vulpes: no.

05:03:29 ben_vulpes: maybe?

05:03:36 asciilifeform: aha so it's pointing straight at phoundation's dns

05:03:44 *: ben_vulpes checks turdolator

05:03:48 asciilifeform: they can send the whole lot of us to dev/null

05:03:49 nubbins`: i don't think so

05:04:00 nubbins`: almost certainly not, no

05:04:31 ben_vulpes: anyone who runs without -connect is asking for it in the arse.

05:10:24 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform and now you gotta add gpg and debug it and srsly...

05:10:32 mircea_popescu: forget it, you want to upgrade get a new unit.

05:10:36 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: gpg fits handily on the nand

05:10:39 ben_vulpes: heh i like that.

05:10:57 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: if these were still made and we could parachute them around the world - that'd be one thing

05:10:59 asciilifeform: but they aren't

05:11:06 asciilifeform: and we haven't so many.

05:11:14 mircea_popescu: so then we buy more.

05:11:18 asciilifeform: and getting physical objects from one place to another is still pretty hard.

09:36:16 BingoBoingo: What isn't?

09:36:49 mircea_popescu: cazalla i was thinking btw, on the general principle of translations. what do you think of a model where translations, be they en to es, or es to en or cn to en or whatever they may be count for half the shares ?

09:36:51 BingoBoingo: It isn't like I plan to battle syphillis anytime soon again

09:37:58 mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo what's +10%vote mean ?

09:38:28 davout: mircea_popescu: half the shares of the original article? or half the shares of the translated piece? i'd say the former makes more sense

09:38:54 mircea_popescu: hm.

09:39:08 mircea_popescu: shit. languages are so fucking difficult.

09:39:22 BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> BingoBoingo what's +10%vote mean ? << You and cazalla are 20% a piece I throw my 10% behind translations, because we aren't fucking Cointelegrah with seperate US and UK press releases

09:39:33 mircea_popescu: the first time today i sat here and couldn't figure out a problem was when i tried to parse davout's proposal. brain just can't cope.

09:39:49 cazalla: BingoBoingo, they have indian and greek too now!

09:39:51 mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo so you're thinking translation more like 2/3 ?

09:40:34 mircea_popescu: davout how do you figure which makes more sense ?

09:40:36 BingoBoingo: I thin translation is between 1/2 to 2/3rds. A full 1 if from strange to Eng

09:41:06 cazalla: i really don't see the issue with matching it 1:1 on the basis translation is useful, es not as much as cn but still

09:41:06 davout: mircea_popescu: some languages are much shorter than others, dutch is much denser than french for example

09:41:14 mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo the thing is, if you give them parity you'll end up with you know, hungarian translation of 500 qntra articles diluting you to shit.

09:41:39 cazalla: but then seeing i can only speaka da english , i am prolly not qualified to "opine" on such matters lol

09:41:40 mircea_popescu: cazalla so then let them be 1:1 but only allow basically es, en, cn and mebbe portuguese ?

09:41:50 BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> BingoBoingo the thing is, if you give them parity you'll end up with you know, hungarian translation of 500 qntra articles diluting you to shit << Editors discretion. Fucking hungarian sucks, not a lang

09:42:03 mircea_popescu: it's as much a language as finish is!

09:42:16 BingoBoingo: Finish not a lang either, it is a goal

09:42:20 mircea_popescu: and before you dismiss that, you should see what fucking tits & ass lean tall blonde stuff they produce!

09:42:28 cazalla: why would we want anything other than spanish and chinesey?

09:42:45 mircea_popescu: cazalla so basically, extended cultural imperialism ?

09:42:49 mircea_popescu: i dunno, i could go withj that.

09:42:51 BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: I hurd they were on US feminist diabeetus diet

09:42:59 cazalla: maybe arabic

09:43:07 cazalla: but other than that, those are top 3 next to english i assume

09:43:08 mircea_popescu: but prolly portuguese > spanish, on account of... well... brazil is like > south america.

09:43:17 cazalla: oh russian.. here we go, give an inch..

09:43:22 mircea_popescu: right ?

09:43:43 mircea_popescu: russian, japanese right ? then all the arabs will get pissy because why do we pick the one or the other ?

09:43:58 BingoBoingo: I could see placing spanish well before portugese because fuck brazil if they aren't waxing

09:44:05 mircea_popescu: but i don't think we can go "all bitcoin happens in english fuck you"

09:44:13 BingoBoingo: Not at all

09:44:28 Adlai: put it to shareholder votes. want more incentive for translations in your language? gotta pay to have a say, like in 'real' politics

09:44:31 mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo brazil is waxing yo. and btw, general point : girls get their tit implants age 16 down here.

09:44:37 BingoBoingo: I think we focus on trade languages of En ES and Fu

09:44:47 mircea_popescu: it's like a bat mitzvah gift.

09:45:01 brendafdez: tit implants :)

09:45:11 mircea_popescu: Adlai how are the shareholders paying exactly ?

09:45:57 Adlai: those who want more compensation for translators to some language, must buy shares in order to have their voices heard/regarded by the editors

09:46:15 mircea_popescu: yeah, that's totally how that'll work.

09:46:16 brendafdez: <mircea_popescu> brendafdez better get out of the defensive shell of stupid and work your butt off, i think. << oops ;)

09:46:27 Adlai: (or they earn their shares the usual way)

09:47:05 cazalla: <BingoBoingo> I could see placing spanish well before portugese because fuck brazil if they aren't waxing <<< so muff is ok ya know

09:47:06 BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: I am totally fine with the En language space surrendering except as a pidgin used in trade. If you let a single slant language into the acceptable trading space though. I sense trouble. Don't know of, but anticipate

09:47:08 cazalla: some even

09:47:19 BingoBoingo: Muff is greap

09:47:35 BingoBoingo: Muff gives my beard something to socialize with

09:48:16 BingoBoingo: You affraid of the poop muff?

09:48:52 mircea_popescu: fun fact : most large felines don't know how to shit as infants, so the mother licks their asshole to stimulate bowel movements.

10:10:55 mircea_popescu: but in truth i dun really drink like i used to.

10:11:07 cazalla: i suspek gypies sell non-alcoholic wine to young romanian men as american's sell oregano to the teens :P

10:13:15 cazalla: the funny thing is, i could've left him in there but i was so frightened that i opened it so that he could beat me

10:13:41 cazalla: prob had war flash backs or something, he went fkn bananas

10:14:31 mircea_popescu: romania (at least the nw, where i'm from) is all about this particular plum distilate.

10:14:48 mircea_popescu: most respectable older men run their own stills, and they usually leak and are in basements

10:15:02 mircea_popescu: so when it's firing time... buncha very drunk dudes that swear they didn't drink a drop

10:15:23 cazalla: banned here, unless for extracting essential oils

10:15:28 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 29700 @ 0.00021789 = 6.4713 BTC [+] {3}

10:15:43 mircea_popescu: romania (at least back in the day) was this place where nothing could be banned.

10:16:03 cazalla: and whenever some dudes die from the methanol they produced, they make a big deal of it in the media to warn of the dangers of diy at home

10:16:13 mircea_popescu: the very notion that the govt would tell you what to do or not do... lol.

10:16:28 mircea_popescu: there's no methanol in this process.

10:16:54 mircea_popescu: actually, distilling fermented fruit can not yield methanol. it's ancient and perfectly safe at that.

10:16:57 BingoBoingo: Clean known moonsine stills here

10:17:03 BingoBoingo: From corn though

10:17:20 cazalla: mircea_popescu, must be making something else then, i have nfi, just hear in the media now and again

10:17:21 mircea_popescu: i think you gotta boil wood before you get crap like that.

10:17:46 cazalla: "Initial reports about the four men's methanol poisoning suggest it occurred when they tried to concoct grappa, a grape-based brandy."

10:18:52 mircea_popescu: pff.

10:18:53 cazalla: prob for the best i don't bottle my own, i'd be in perpetual state of drunkedness

10:19:21 mircea_popescu: they probably tried to "concoct grappa" out of office chairs or something.

10:19:46 mircea_popescu: seeing how one hundred thousand people made their own for decade upon decade without ill effect.

10:19:49 cazalla: well, if one is going to eat plastic food, may as well drink plastic too

10:20:45 mircea_popescu: anywya, if memory serves there's a good 10-20 degrees differential between ethanol and methanol boiling points.

10:21:34 cazalla: anyway, zzz for me

10:21:47 mircea_popescu: even if you start with a 50-50 mixture, keep the still open at ~75 degrees for half an hour, then you can just let it burn and collect the result.

10:22:00 mircea_popescu: nn c man

10:29:17 jurov: heh. my parents themselves started to give me wine.. at 15 or so :D

10:29:35 mircea_popescu: sounds about right.

10:30:19 jurov: <mircea_popescu> actually, distilling fermented fruit can not yield methanol << wait what???

10:30:22 BingoBoingo: My parents unlocked the scotch at 12

10:30:30 mircea_popescu: to which part ?

10:30:48 BingoBoingo: <jurov> <mircea_popescu> actually, distilling fermented fruit can not yield methanol << wait what??? << It totally can

10:30:58 jurov: i have held in my hand plum methanol, wtf if mircea up to

10:31:05 jurov: *is

10:31:24 BingoBoingo: jurov: He has an idealistic image of the old country

10:31:39 mircea_popescu: no dude, it's just fucking rare.

10:31:48 mircea_popescu: in the single digit ppm.

10:33:07 BingoBoingo: I've drank 98+ proof corn whiskey aged right with minimal fusile alcohols. Everyone wants their tradition to be the saint

10:34:17 jurov: http://homedistiller.org/intro/methanol/methanol apparently it depends

10:34:19 assbot: Home Distillation of Alcohol (Homemade Alcohol to Drink) ... ( http://bit.ly/1EFwqRE )

10:34:35 jurov: "for example apple juice can have 0.2-0.3% methanol, or if derived from pulp by enzymatic degradation, the levels can be 2 to 3 times higher."

10:34:45 mircea_popescu: jurov there's two things : one, what you use and how you ferment it. two, how you distil.

10:35:05 mircea_popescu: but historically, methanol is "wood alcohol". ie, if you try to distil roadkill and old boots, you get a lot of it.

10:35:12 jurov: yes but that's very different from "can not yield"

10:35:15 mircea_popescu: otherwise, properly fermented plums specifically are so and so.

10:35:30 mircea_popescu: well i was talking of the traditional process as used, not of whatever random strange one may try.

10:35:48 mircea_popescu: you know these things get highly traditional / fixated.

10:36:32 mircea_popescu: but in any case : methanol has significant lower boiling point. which, again, means that even if you start with an equal part mixture, if you distil correctly you take it all out.

10:37:02 jurov: yes

10:37:38 mircea_popescu: well so that.

14:14:10 nubbins`: neh

14:14:22 nubbins`: is buffer.h anywhere on your system>?

14:14:35 nubbins`: might be an include path issue

14:15:01 danielpbarron: i thought this is supposed to download a specific version of ssl and use a local copy

14:15:10 danielpbarron: why should i need to install things on my system?

14:15:40 nubbins`: pastebin your ./auto.sh

14:15:53 nubbins`: and your bitcoin/src/makefile.unix

14:16:16 nubbins`: heck, skip pastebin and danielpbarron.com them

14:17:36 nubbins`: openssl is the first dep that should get downloaded and compiled, so if it's halting there it's probably a path issue

14:18:07 mod6: i've never used gentoo before, but if this still a problem/not-resolved by the end of the day, I'll try to setup a new droplet and test the auto.sh changes there.

14:19:02 nubbins`: that's trying to include the same dir three times

14:19:17 nubbins`: which might indicate that it's failing to parse something after /include

14:19:51 danielpbarron: that attempt was using the arm toolchain

14:19:57 nubbins`: i had to modify makefile for osx because all the path stuff wasn't resolving, your gentoo might have similar prob

17:37:53 ascii_field: ben_vulpes: no, nodes don't get updated << so, let's go into this in detail. they ship with all the seed ips they will ever have? for the record i proclaim this to be retarded. -keys- are the constants of our world, not ip addrs

17:39:09 ascii_field: i utterly understand the desire to 'tivoize' these things so they don't get turned into phoundation nodes by lamers. but this can be done without idiot waste.

17:39:36 ascii_field: once the twentybux boxes run out (and i expect that it will happen sooner rather than later) prepare to pay six times more for each node.

17:39:48 ascii_field: right now some bezzlatronic idiot is paying the difference

17:40:14 ascii_field: (the vendor is selling a loss-leader, hoping to attract chumps to its 5/mo. 'cloud' crapolade)

17:41:03 nubbins`: i think a lot of it is genuinely overstock too

17:41:06 ascii_field: likewise physical delivery is expensive. (witness kakobrekla's attempt to buy so much as one pogo and still have it 'feel disposable')

17:41:09 ascii_field: nubbins`: this also.

17:41:22 nubbins`: physical delivery, for me, bottoms out at ~$10usd

17:41:27 nubbins`: whether i buy 3 or 50

17:41:42 ascii_field: so, what, we're expecting operators to throw out perfectly good boxes to add a fucking seed node!?!

17:42:16 ascii_field: turning an ip address into a critical constant in a field-deployed machine paints a big fat target on that ip for usg

17:42:34 ascii_field: one of the few things usg is reliably good at is making a particular ip unusable

17:42:42 ascii_field: or emplacing own turd there

17:42:47 nubbins`: my ip address will be fine to use as a seed node, but it /may occasionally change/

17:42:55 ascii_field: nubbins`: there you go

17:43:00 ascii_field: hardcoded seeds - idiocy

17:43:01 nubbins`: and is thus useless for inclusion in a baked-in

17:43:04 ascii_field: there is no other side to this

17:43:26 nubbins`: now, i can gpg-sign my ip address and publish it somewhere when it changes

17:43:35 nubbins`: in fact, i can almost certainly have this process be automatic

17:43:41 ascii_field: nubbins`: this means gpg on the nodes

17:43:44 ascii_field: and updatatron

17:43:58 ascii_field: and mircea_popescu will say 'bah, unreliable, you're driving up engineering cost 1000 times'

17:44:08 nubbins`: gpg and curl, at the very least

17:44:15 ascii_field: i suggested this, yes

17:44:20 ascii_field: well, not curl

17:45:26 mthreat: after the land of chipotle

17:45:27 ascii_field: nubbins`: updated whatever

17:45:54 nubbins`: nod

17:46:21 ascii_field: no automagic-anything.

17:46:26 nubbins`: there's gotta be a sane way to do this over the wire

17:46:27 ascii_field: user must consciously insist on update

17:46:46 ascii_field: nubbins`: silent wire updates are ipso facto insane

17:52:44 ascii_field: and i disagree with mircea_popescu's hypothesis that 'enemy is stupid'. he is not stupid. he is being slow, so as to show off his sprezzatura.

17:52:56 nubbins`: this is getting dangerously closer to bringing the whole seed thing back to first principles, you know

17:53:18 ascii_field: give or take a few months, enemy starts to bark up the vaguely-correct tree.

17:54:03 nubbins`: hm

17:54:13 ascii_field: nubbins`: ultimately the first principle is that pubkeys are the only valid locators for anything purporting to be human

17:55:35 ascii_field: ben_vulpes: don't hurry, think.

17:55:35 ben_vulpes: it seems you object to 2 things

17:55:49 ben_vulpes: i may be wrong and stupid, but i'm willing to be corrected and learn

17:55:56 ben_vulpes: 1) hardcoding of seeds by enemy

17:56:04 ben_vulpes: 2) using enemy's keys

17:56:12 ascii_field: ben_vulpes: wai wat?!!

17:56:20 ascii_field: i was objecting to hardcoding of seeds -by us-

17:56:23 ben_vulpes: aha

17:56:44 nubbins`: what sort of handshake happens when you find a live ip in the seed list

17:56:56 ascii_field: warning that if we bake machines with unchangeable ip constants, this paints a fat blinking target on them

17:56:59 ascii_field: for usg

17:57:31 ascii_field: the only valid constant is keys.

17:57:49 nubbins`: you can't locate someone with a key

17:57:56 ben_vulpes: so if i might be forgiven for conflating things, should not any subset of the wot graph be able to use their own keys?

17:58:08 ascii_field: ben_vulpes: use their own keys for what ?

17:58:20 ben_vulpes: signing updates to seed list.

17:58:50 ascii_field: this is where you gotta make the call re: how much centralization you want.

17:59:13 ben_vulpes: if we're to entertain updating, operators *must* be able to update without foundation keys.

17:59:13 ascii_field: and where mircea_popescu wakes up and says 'now the machine is 1000x more complex, needs to know what wot is'

17:59:34 ben_vulpes: alternatively, with arbitrary keys.

17:59:42 ascii_field: meaning no key at all ?

17:59:59 nubbins`: suppose you get a box and then start suspecting we've been turned.

17:59:59 ben_vulpes: perhaps must be supplied with keys on initial flash

18:00:17 nubbins`: now you're stuck with a box with OUR keys being the arbiter

18:00:21 ascii_field: why would someone buy a box from therealbitcoin when he suspects we've been turned ?

18:00:29 nubbins`: s/when/before/

18:00:41 ascii_field: i'm fine with him having to buy a new box -then-

18:00:42 ben_vulpes: i thought boxes were user-flashed!

18:00:46 nubbins`: aha!

18:00:47 nubbins`: :D

18:00:58 nubbins`: let him buy a banana cream pi or w/e

18:01:12 ascii_field: ben_vulpes: user-flashed possibly, from vendor state, but not into a configuration that is reflashable in the same idiot (remote exploit) way

18:03:02 nubbins`: fuck it, get it to scan a random /16 for .foundation nodes on first boot

18:03:11 nubbins`: sure, it'll take a couple days humming before it starts getting blocks

18:03:14 nubbins`: BUT W/E

18:03:22 nubbins`: ;p

18:03:36 ben_vulpes: lol y not

18:04:01 ascii_field: scan a random /16 for .foundation nodes << wai wat

18:04:11 ascii_field: how do you propose to distinguish friend/foe ?

18:04:25 ben_vulpes: there is no friend/foe

18:04:27 ascii_field: we have no mechanism for this

18:04:30 ben_vulpes: there are just nodes on the network

18:04:35 ascii_field: ben_vulpes: he use the phrase '.foundation nodes'

18:04:46 ascii_field: implies that these can be told apart from others

18:04:50 ascii_field: by machine

18:04:58 ben_vulpes: and it'll remain that way until the block download thing is fixed to a) track node quality and b) spot-check blocks provided by high quality peers

18:05:10 nubbins`: you can't have visible to users but invisible to usg

18:05:13 nubbins`: just can't

18:05:14 nubbins`: !up ascii_field

18:05:15 asciilifeform: !up ascii_field

18:05:44 nubbins`: anyway, consider the statement suitably modified

18:06:01 ascii_field: ultimately the only proper box is one where the only magical constant is an rsa key, and same key is also prominently burned into the chassis

18:06:13 nubbins`: i'm sure we all have at least a reasonably narrow range of IPs that'll be assigned to our nodes, even if they're dynamic

18:06:20 ascii_field: nubbins`: i don't

18:06:31 nubbins`: o!

18:06:38 ascii_field: this is a very bad assumption

18:07:12 ascii_field: my isp is a mega-conglomerate which owns and uses multiple slash-eights

18:07:26 ben_vulpes: and shouldn't this discussion be looking at ipv6 as well?

18:07:41 nubbins`: lel, total country bumpkins here re: ip blocks obv 8)

18:07:41 ascii_field: ben_vulpes: i recommend strongly against ipv6 in this machine

18:07:54 ascii_field: multiple known bugs revolving around mostly untested ipv6 crud

18:08:05 *: ben_vulpes is a total country bumpkin re: anything combudder

18:08:06 ascii_field: i recall at least one that concerns marvell in particular

18:08:27 ascii_field: i don't even have ipv6 enabled on my lan, much less outgoing.

18:08:53 ascii_field: even if nothing else, complicates reading packet dumps

18:08:59 ascii_field: which any reasonable person does regularly

18:09:03 ascii_field: to see what lives in his home

18:09:24 ascii_field: at the risk of pissing off many, i will still say, screw ipv6

18:10:45 nubbins`: hm

18:10:51 nubbins`: just thinking out loud here

18:10:57 ascii_field: i ban ipv6 in my home.

18:12:35 nubbins`: hardcode DNS servers and fill the seed list w/ hostnames instead of ips

18:12:44 ascii_field: 100% usg

18:12:52 ascii_field: usg has real time iron control over all of dns.

18:12:56 ascii_field: to a first approximation.

18:13:11 ascii_field: this is right back to phoundation's idiocies.

18:13:14 nubbins`: well i'm not running a namecoin node

18:13:24 ascii_field: nubbins`: don't need to (and same problems apply to it)

18:14:27 ascii_field: the only way to cut usg-controlled apparatus entirely out of the loop is to have the node get all volatiles (e.g., ip addrs) from files, on inserable media, -signed- by burned-in and prominently-advertised key.

18:15:00 nubbins`: how many ips (or live ips, if you prefer) in current seed list?

18:15:04 nubbins`: i think this is on the ml somewhere..

18:15:09 ascii_field: yeah i posted it.

18:16:54 mod6: you rang?

18:16:57 nubbins`: heh.

18:17:23 jurov: if seedlist is to be signed, then it can download it automatically, no?

18:17:24 nubbins`: so according to this, six live seeds would ostensibly be enough to bootstrap with

18:17:32 ascii_field: until they're shot

18:17:37 nubbins`: right.

18:17:46 nubbins`: then those six are useless

18:17:49 ascii_field: the only reason they are alive (and are they? i checked a good while ago) is that no one cared.

18:18:04 nubbins`: in the meantime, we've been using a different six since we sent out the first X units

18:18:24 nubbins`: cat-and-mouse

18:18:30 nubbins`: brb

18:19:12 ascii_field: there will be considerably less cat'n'mouse if enemy -knows- that there can be no effect from chewing on the mice

18:19:24 ascii_field: and the only way this could be so is if there are no magic hardcoded ips.

18:19:33 ascii_field: you can't ddos an rsa key

18:19:50 ascii_field: or have it administratively forced to rout to ft meade

18:38:06 asciilifeform: !up ascii_field

18:48:21 nubbins`: ascii_field so what's the path from rsa key -> seed node

18:48:30 ascii_field: nubbins`: i proposed a very simple one

18:48:33 nubbins`: maybe i'm being obtuse :S

18:49:04 ascii_field: nubbins`: node ships with no seeds. even without bitcoind binary. user inserts a storage unit on which he has placed a therealbitcoin-signed tarball. this gets eaten up.

18:49:08 ascii_field: repeat as necessary.

18:49:24 ascii_field: (and user presses button, yes)

18:49:35 nubbins`: a a a.

18:49:40 nubbins`: i gotcha

18:49:56 ben_vulpes: seeds included in tarball?

18:50:06 nubbins`: heh.

18:52:31 ascii_field: ben_vulpes: aha

18:52:47 nubbins`: any seed list made public by any means is a target

18:53:06 nubbins`: us cloaked ones forget about ddos lurkers in here

18:53:14 ascii_field: nubbins`: yes. but -how attractive- a target, will depend on how much damage can be done to our cause by shooting at it

18:53:23 ascii_field: hence the sheer lunacy of unchangeable ips anywhere

18:54:14 nubbins`: at this rate you're gonna have to get in the wot before someone tells you a seed ip

18:54:24 *: nubbins` blinks twice

18:54:49 ascii_field: nubbins`: bitcoin doesn't run on secret ips

18:54:57 ascii_field: that's a road to lameness

18:55:16 ascii_field: but there is a reasonably sane solution that doesn't involve secrecy

18:55:31 ascii_field: but simply 'we can move these at zero cost to us and ours if we want to, so don't bother shooting at them'

18:57:52 *: nubbins` gestures appropriately

18:58:54 nubbins`: foundation could publish a list of trusted seeds each month w/ state of the union

18:58:59 nubbins`: i don't know

18:59:06 ascii_field: why not.

18:59:10 nubbins`: also woot, 2x raspi & 2x pogo just showed up

18:59:29 nubbins`: seed list is in a source file?

18:59:41 nubbins`: or txt

18:59:46 ascii_field: txt

18:59:53 nubbins`: beaut

18:59:59 nubbins`: monthly seed list updates

19:00:03 nubbins`: separate tarball

19:00:29 nubbins`: unit comes w/ instructions for use, that includes grabbing both the bitcoind tarball and a seed list tarball of choice

19:00:47 ascii_field: try to see, i don't suggest hosting therealbitcoin mega-seeds on dynamic ip consumer boxes

19:00:55 ascii_field: but on solid pipes somewhere, ideally

19:01:10 ascii_field: the movability is like nukes, shouldn't ever have to be -used- - with any regularity

19:01:16 nubbins`: nod

19:01:26 ascii_field: it must be there to remind the enemy of his helplessness

19:03:05 nubbins`: so the switch from phoundation seeds to foundation seeds must happen after said pipes are tapped

19:59:12 mircea_popescu: (for poor people reading : "donating to a charity" = tax deduction = you didn't actually spend anything. because say my company has made 1mn revenue this year, and my tax accountant is bs so i have to pay like 120k in tax. if i donate 100k to a charity and pay 30k ish im all done. so therefore - whether i lose this bet or not decides whether i write a check to x or to y, not whether i write the check at all.

19:59:29 mircea_popescu: "donation to charity" is what rich people do to make poor people think something happened.)

21:24:50 assbot: Pay: Richard Littauer ... ( http://bit.ly/18Y6Puq )

21:25:53 mircea_popescu: trinque oddly that thing doesn't load any content for me. either im not drunk enough or you broke it.

21:26:29 mircea_popescu: nubbins`> batorade (tm) << secreted by the batshit insane ?

21:26:49 nubbins`: it still rhymes with gatorade!

21:26:58 trinque: mircea_popescu: you're not missing anything

21:27:32 mircea_popescu: anyway, the "Copy machine money" : this is a sad necessity. if it weren't present, muppets WOULD "try it", and discover "it works", and srsly financial collapse. for real.

21:28:00 trinque: the great canon pixma revolution of 2018

21:28:04 ascii_field: mircea_popescu: they did try, and result could only fool a muppet

21:28:30 mircea_popescu: which is 90% of people engaged in commerce.

21:28:31 ascii_field: and it takes some actual work to bleach a 1usd note to get anything like plausible paper for benjie

21:28:43 mircea_popescu: check it out, bitcointalk scams fooled tons of "early adopters", "world changers" etc.

21:28:59 ascii_field: different game. 'they wanted to believe'

21:29:08 mircea_popescu: ascii_field im talking money cut out of a fucking notebook.

21:29:11 mircea_popescu: so do these ?

21:29:14 mircea_popescu: exactly same game.

21:29:17 mircea_popescu: where's that video.

21:31:19 mircea_popescu: ;;google christina applegate buys a car with kellog's cornflakes cutoutsd.

21:31:21 gribble: No matches found.

21:31:27 ascii_field: (phun phact for non-u.s. folks: all u.s. dollar notes have exactly the same physical dimensions.)

21:31:29 mircea_popescu: yeah, well, google... that just means you're useless.

21:38:58 mircea_popescu: ascii_field i don't get it. who would "buy" such a thing ?

21:39:10 mircea_popescu: we're not talking 100 bucks for a piece of plastic here.

21:39:11 ascii_field: wai wat

21:39:18 ascii_field: buy what

21:39:24 mircea_popescu: 'We as a company own all of the machines. There is no outstanding balance and we've already had the tech come out to unlock them."

21:39:41 ascii_field: aha, as in 'who would buy a boeing' ?

21:39:55 mircea_popescu: "a company, not a person - or in other words nobody"

21:40:03 mircea_popescu: gotta love the systematic nature of stupid.

21:40:27 ascii_field: i thought mircea_popescu was asking why a firm would purchase rather than lease the machines

21:40:44 mircea_popescu: they paid them, it's not a lease anymore.

21:41:02 ascii_field: aha

21:41:25 *: ascii_field thought that mircea_popescu was asking why the machines are offered for purchase rather than, as often happens with such equipment, for lease

21:41:26 trinque: should've sued instead of just thanking the tech for restoring access to their property

21:41:39 ascii_field: trinque: you 'agree' when you buy

21:41:42 ascii_field: to the crapolade

21:41:47 mircea_popescu: trinque im thinking the same, this is something readily resolved in court.

21:41:51 mircea_popescu: ascii_field you agree never to move it ?

21:41:57 mircea_popescu: why ?

21:42:01 ascii_field: you agree to pay $$$$$ to move

21:42:07 ascii_field: because usg inspectors

21:42:39 *: mircea_popescu is unfamiliar with the field.

21:42:43 mircea_popescu: what's being inspected specifically ?

21:42:50 ascii_field: location

21:43:00 mircea_popescu: http://log1.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=25-03-2015#1070794 << the SEEDS. nodes constantly discover their own peers. starting from a seed list.

21:43:02 trinque: how hard would it be to break the accelerometer?

21:43:16 mircea_popescu: trinque it probably stops working.

21:43:22 nubbins`: gzip: turdel.gz: not in gzip format

21:43:25 mircea_popescu: ascii_field what about it ?

21:43:31 ascii_field: nubbins`: it sure as fuck is a gzip

21:43:34 ascii_field: wget it

21:43:38 ascii_field: don't use browser

21:43:42 ascii_field: (they often unzip)

21:43:51 nubbins`: o.

21:43:53 trinque: mircea_popescu: someone should have a business doing aftermarket mods on these

21:43:55 nubbins`: totally what i did. sec.

21:43:58 nubbins`: (and til!)

21:43:59 ascii_field: mircea_popescu: what about it << it being in a usg-blessed region

21:44:07 mircea_popescu: http://log1.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=25-03-2015#1070795 << there's no such thing desired or even possible. understand : the scam foundation is stupid because it is actually stupid, not because me or you or god said it should be deemed as stupid.

21:44:07 assbot: Logged on 25-03-2015 17:39:09; ascii_field: i utterly understand the desire to 'tivoize' these things so they don't get turned into phoundation nodes by lamers. but this can be done without idiot waste.

21:44:13 mircea_popescu: actual hardware is useless for their purposes

21:44:21 mircea_popescu: they need imaginary hardware to support their imaginary "technologies"

21:44:35 ascii_field: ^ my puny brain does not get the meaning of this

21:44:39 ascii_field: imaginary hardware ?

21:44:42 mircea_popescu: yes.

21:44:49 ascii_field: as in vapourware ?

21:45:00 mircea_popescu: usgavin's been on a kick about this imaginary hardware that will run his 200 trillion jiggabit nodes.

21:45:11 mircea_popescu: because you know, "it quadruples every two weeks"

21:45:24 mircea_popescu: what's the pogo gonna do ?

21:45:26 ascii_field: neh from my perch it looks like they're gearing up for an elementary meat war of conventional nodes

21:45:39 mircea_popescu: that's what they think they're doing.

21:45:50 mircea_popescu: understand : they can stand on their fucking head. "vote" ? what fucking vote ?

21:45:58 mircea_popescu: heck, i'll vote WITH them on the voting stage of things

21:46:03 mircea_popescu: still rape them once the switch happens.

21:46:19 mircea_popescu: this is not a discussion of anything but the hard laws.

21:46:28 mircea_popescu: or w/e hanbot called it

21:46:51 trinque: hm

21:46:52 mircea_popescu: so : yeah, usg&friends thinks it's engaging me on its own terms.

21:46:56 mircea_popescu: and it has been doing this, for years now.

21:46:57 trinque: is it just a matter of preserving the existing chain?

21:47:04 trinque: not "winning" in the sense of a fork?

21:47:08 mircea_popescu: it does not work. might as well grab the moon with a tweezer

21:47:16 trinque: because they become incompatible, then go off to eventually die?

21:47:18 nubbins`: ascii_field oh wait this is just a blob, isn't it?

21:47:19 mircea_popescu: "i wonder why that doesn't work, the allignm,ent was perfect!"

21:47:30 ascii_field: nubbins`: it's just a demo kernel for pogo

21:47:31 mircea_popescu: trinque it autowins the fork.

21:47:34 nubbins`: nod

21:47:44 ascii_field: nubbins`: armv5 binary. nothing earth-shaking

21:47:54 mircea_popescu: !up ascii_field

21:48:07 nubbins`: brainfarted and thought you mentioned smth about a uboot being in there

21:48:15 ascii_field: nubbins`: -also- built u-boot

21:48:18 ascii_field: but not posted

21:48:22 nubbins`: aha! :D

21:48:39 ascii_field: and in case anyone needs to be reminded, please don't use downloaded binaries for anything serious

21:48:40 nubbins`: i was about to flash the nand when i recalled a nebulous something about this

21:48:41 mircea_popescu: ascii_field dja get my meaning here ?

21:49:08 ascii_field: mircea_popescu: if i understand, the meaning is that there is no phoundation node ?

21:49:19 ascii_field: this still doesn't give us a license to be retarded when making these

21:49:23 mircea_popescu: there can not be a power ranger node that can run on a pogo.

21:49:29 mircea_popescu: think about it. 20mb blocks ? srsly ?

21:49:42 mircea_popescu: no, itdoesn't give us a license to be retarded.

21:49:45 thestringpuller: 20mb is only the limit!

21:49:46 ascii_field: actually, i can see them trying to convert'em to 0.10 or what it was

21:49:51 thestringpuller: the blocks will be much smaller

21:49:52 ascii_field: just to maintain relevance for selves

21:49:55 thestringpuller: until then!

21:49:56 ascii_field: and keep us off the stage

21:49:58 mircea_popescu: but if you imagine there's any room in the spec of this thing for the end user to fiddle with it you're ourgiht nuts.

21:50:01 mircea_popescu: fire and forget.

21:50:02 mircea_popescu: only way.

21:50:05 *: thestringpuller says other pseudo arguments

21:50:11 ascii_field: hardcoded seeds are retarded

21:50:21 ascii_field: i stand by this

21:50:25 trinque: mircea_popescu: yeah thought in the shower today that giving an easy way to dump other code into the thing later was a terrible idea

21:50:33 trinque: all the thing has to do is hold the line

21:50:35 ascii_field: they -will- be ddosed and sinkholed to usg machines.

21:50:37 ascii_field: guaranteed.

21:50:42 mircea_popescu: trinque it.costs.20.bux.to.get.one.

21:50:46 trinque: yeap

21:50:52 mircea_popescu: wtf people. srsly. if anyone WANTS TO run a pogo they can

21:50:57 mircea_popescu: they can run fucking madonna videos on it

21:50:58 mircea_popescu: k ?

21:50:59 ascii_field: mircea_popescu: 20bux + a man with a suitcase to bring it to you, if you're in ar

21:51:10 mircea_popescu: we are solving third world problems now ?

21:51:15 ascii_field: and that's while the 20bux machines last.

21:51:23 mircea_popescu: fuck the third world with a spiked club. if it wasn't made by retards it wouldn't be third.

21:51:40 ascii_field: mircea_popescu: if we're so non-thirdworld, where's my ic fab ?

21:51:52 mircea_popescu: these are different problems omg.

21:52:11 ascii_field: fact is, 101st or 202nd pogo, whichever, will cost $maxint.

21:52:12 mircea_popescu: the mexican billionaire w/e his name is has his own ic fab made out of driewd cunt juice./

21:52:16 mircea_popescu: so ?

21:52:34 ascii_field: so we're thirdworld. or we wouldn't be playing junkyard wars.

21:52:40 ascii_field: or do i misunderstand the term

21:53:01 thestringpuller: how is this anything like junk yard wars?

21:53:10 ascii_field: thestringpuller: we're repurposing obsolete hardware

21:53:15 ascii_field: rather than fabbing single-chip node

21:53:21 ascii_field: from ore

21:53:27 trinque: an AK is a great gun

21:53:36 ascii_field: !s izhevsk

21:53:37 assbot: 4 results for 'izhevsk' : http://s.b-a.link/?q=izhevsk

21:53:43 ascii_field: ^ mandatory

21:53:51 mircea_popescu: i think you misunderstand the term.

21:53:58 ascii_field: hm?

21:54:12 mircea_popescu: but anyway : forget argentina, and forget the anecdotal peculiarities of my odd choices in things.

21:54:42 thestringpuller: ascii_field: this seems more like battlebots than junkyard wars. (Junkyard wars reminds me more of ed edd and eddie which was pretty much all junkyard hacking"

21:54:51 mircea_popescu: this is a consumer product, it works like a consumer product. once it stops working it gets thrown out.

21:54:59 mircea_popescu: it is not an item to be loved, dreamed about, repaired, tuned etc.

21:55:25 ascii_field: mircea_popescu: i get this. but we're dealing with a fundamental case of amplification attack.

21:55:32 mircea_popescu: specifically ?

21:55:40 ascii_field: enemy can cost us K by spending J, where J is close to nil and K is positive

21:55:51 mircea_popescu: sp.eci.fi.cally!!111

21:55:52 ascii_field: they ddos the magic ips - or worse, silently redirect to own boxes

21:55:59 ascii_field: and we have to parachute new units ?

21:56:07 mircea_popescu: yes.

21:56:16 ascii_field: i say this is retarded

21:56:18 mircea_popescu: for the cost of this project, i wish to see large scale ip diddling

21:56:26 mircea_popescu: i totally wish to see it.

21:56:33 mircea_popescu: heck, ima make a blog post about it.

21:56:55 ascii_field: just for mircea_popescu's pleasure they will do straight sinkhole

21:56:58 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 5400 @ 0.00025269 = 1.3645 BTC [-]

21:56:59 ascii_field: instead of diddlage

21:57:08 mircea_popescu: and this won't be all over the internets, either.

21:57:21 mircea_popescu: dja see how the fucking attacked ips are actually more valuable than the damned pogos ?

21:57:26 ascii_field: at any rate, -we won't know- that it's pointing to usg boxes emulating our nodes

21:57:32 mircea_popescu: right.

21:57:39 ascii_field: there is no mechanism for distinguishing a correctly operating node from one that will be until day X

21:57:40 mircea_popescu: overengineering is like cocaine.

21:58:16 ascii_field: the fucking attacked ips are actually more valuable than the damned pogos << they are not valuable because we can never prove they exist

21:58:24 ascii_field: even to our own satisfaction

21:58:29 mircea_popescu: ...

21:58:38 ascii_field: i'll spell it out:

21:58:40 mircea_popescu: because they only exist halfway, like competent usg and able nsa ?

21:58:44 ascii_field: 1) we deploy boxes with magic ips

21:59:00 ascii_field: 2) usg redirects them to exact copies of our own boxes sitting in ft meade

21:59:17 ascii_field: 3) ages pass and we notice nothing. they switch theirs off when ours go off, etc. direct mitm

21:59:27 mircea_popescu: orly.

21:59:32 mircea_popescu: no measurable latency of this

21:59:34 ascii_field: 4) on day X they turn on the mitm diddlamatic and do... something

21:59:36 ascii_field: 5) ???

21:59:37 ascii_field: 6) profit

21:59:42 mircea_popescu: what fucking profit lol.

21:59:50 ascii_field: ask'em not me

21:59:53 mircea_popescu: ft meade gets to look like a kiddy pool i took a piss in

21:59:58 mircea_popescu: total profit.

22:00:02 nubbins`: so deploy them with magic ips and "check here monthly for updated seed list, the walls have eyes, sam is in the trees, etc"

22:00:04 mircea_popescu: wron side of the scoreboard, but sure, profit.

22:00:18 mircea_popescu: nubbins` that's a concentration of the problem.

22:00:21 mircea_popescu: now you have a "here"

22:00:32 nubbins`: the original seed list is a "here"

22:00:37 ascii_field: precisely why i didn't say 'network update'

22:00:40 mircea_popescu: right but you're adding a narrower version.

22:00:42 nubbins`: (and there, and there, and there...)

22:00:47 ascii_field: i said 'will eat update signed by key'

22:01:02 ascii_field: the key in mircea_popescu's ring, or wherever

22:01:04 mircea_popescu: ascii_field if you're so absolutely convinced, how about seedlist is a config file sits with blockchain on disk ?

22:01:10 trinque: ascii_field: that's what I proposed

22:01:11 ascii_field: aha

22:01:14 ascii_field: that was what i asked for

22:01:21 trinque: an address sending transactions which indicate hashes of updates

22:01:26 trinque: of the seedlist, whatever

22:01:32 trinque: and yeah, then somebody is a point of failure

22:01:43 mircea_popescu: ascii_field seemed to me you're asking for an entirely something erlse, but anyway

22:02:07 mircea_popescu: iirc you were asking for a complex update gpg signature thing. not for a simple "move x text file from /sda to /sdb"

22:03:29 nubbins`: <+mircea_popescu> right but you're adding a narrower version. << so "check the usual places monthly", w/e

22:04:05 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 16171 @ 0.00024929 = 4.0313 BTC [-] {2}

22:04:12 mircea_popescu: nubbins` if it's not narrower just make it the seed list. bam back to square one.

22:04:21 mircea_popescu: you're trying to jump a fence by crawling on your back.

22:04:38 *: nubbins` shakes head

22:04:53 trinque: what if the seed list was encoded directly as transactions?

22:05:00 nubbins`: monthly state of bitcoin address, "check out these sweet seed ips"

22:05:05 trinque: trusted after some large number of confirmations

22:05:09 trinque: nubbins`: yeha.

22:05:18 nubbins`: "feel free to update the seed list that came w/ your device"

22:05:29 nubbins`: "it's been signed by us and our pubkeys shipped with your device"

22:05:35 trinque: I'm not even saying that

22:05:36 mircea_popescu: motherfucker.

22:05:38 nubbins`: THEN you only need to worry about the NSA intercepting the shipments.

22:05:40 trinque: encode IPs into outputs or something

22:06:11 mircea_popescu: build a cnc mill in every pogo, be done with it.

22:06:21 mircea_popescu: they could make dildos while brushing gf's teeth.

22:06:49 nubbins`: <+trinque> what if the seed list was encoded directly as transactions? <<< how you gonna get those transactions?

22:07:02 mircea_popescu: by infinite power.

22:07:32 *: mircea_popescu passes out "you suck at system design" dounce hats liberally.

22:07:42 trinque: eh ok

22:07:45 *: nubbins` sighs

22:07:53 trinque: obviously the thing has to connect to something first

22:08:10 trinque: if you wanted it to connect to other somethings later, either the natural way or some means of signaling

22:08:15 nubbins`: i'm suggesting shipping them with a hardcoded seed list *just like you are*

22:08:19 trinque: if you can't trust a txn that's very old, uh

22:08:21 trinque: bitcoin doesn't work

22:08:33 mircea_popescu: nubbins` do you mind ? i'm being mean over here.

22:08:35 nubbins`: i'm just also saying that /new seeds can be published in the future by the .foundation, if they want to/

22:08:44 *: nubbins` tips table over

22:08:59 mircea_popescu: was that a laser tip or an artisanal tip ?

22:09:05 nubbins`: mushroom tip

22:09:12 mircea_popescu: jus' the tip!

22:09:23 nubbins`: 's all that fits

22:10:21 mircea_popescu: (im kinda nonplussed that nobody even seems to realise seed list is only interesting on boot and these aren't intended to ever reboot, really.)

22:10:40 trinque: comcast will eventually go out

22:10:47 mircea_popescu: boot. not network outage.

22:11:00 mircea_popescu: how often does your 1.8 watt thing drain the ups ?

22:11:11 trinque: if they're consumer turds no ups

22:11:13 nubbins`: once every whoops i unplugged it

22:11:24 trinque: "fucking around behind the TV"

22:11:32 mircea_popescu: nubbins` onoes, you ruined 20 bux worht of old gear (plus shipping and handling!)

22:11:47 mircea_popescu: buy two plug them in diff bedrooms.

22:12:01 mircea_popescu: this is hopw the problem is solved in this space : buy more units.

22:13:05 mircea_popescu: i guess nobody ever played zerg hm ?

22:13:32 mircea_popescu: "dude that zergling's broken" "mmkay" "aren't you going to repair it ?" "wut ?! *click* *click* *click* *click* *click*"

22:13:35 nubbins`: nobody's gonna pay ten cents for something that breaks if you turn it off

22:13:52 mircea_popescu: it breaks if you turn it off && fort meade floats in the air above your house.

22:14:21 nubbins`: ha.

22:14:24 mircea_popescu: also known as, not a single seed ip remains.

22:14:31 trinque: anyhow I think any remote control of any kind is bad, mkay

22:14:46 trinque: but if they need some kind of signaling, signaling by blockchain is probably the safest

22:14:55 trinque: not "we trust this pastebin" or w/e

22:14:59 trinque: even gpg signed

22:15:01 mircea_popescu: in general. not when you're signalling how to get the blockchain.

22:15:47 *: trinque goes to find the length of the longest-ever fork

22:15:58 trinque: rather, fork which was abandoned

22:16:09 mircea_popescu: in any case, the "this thing breaks if it runs out of power at any point after the enemy (or more likely plain old rust) has destroyedall seed ips" proposition is better value than

22:16:25 mircea_popescu: "this thing breaks iof there's a bug found in gpg. or if we didn't implement signature checking correctly. or or or or"

22:16:26 nubbins`: trinque for all you know i forked the blockchain 2 years ago and am still shuffling my forked coins

22:16:37 mircea_popescu: trinque not an answerable q.

22:17:25 mircea_popescu: (and before anyone goes "how could we implement signature checking incorrectly", this was discussed mere days ago. === "no errors found" or what was it)

22:18:17 trinque: nubbins`: you can declare you've spent my coin? and others will be able to verify this?

22:18:25 mircea_popescu: !up ascii_field

22:18:35 mircea_popescu: trinque they can be empty blocks, still a fork.

22:18:41 nubbins`: trinque that's not what you were looking for 8)

22:19:08 nubbins`: mircea_popescu so are you proposing that all pogos ever sent out will contain 0.5.3.1 or w/e current release is when the first one goes out?

22:19:15 mircea_popescu: nope.

22:19:22 nubbins`: then it's sort of a self-solving problem

22:19:29 mircea_popescu: i propose whoever makes one puts w/e the fuck they want in there and that's that for the damned unit in question

22:19:37 mircea_popescu: and if you want to change, derp. change the production flux.

22:19:56 mircea_popescu: you know, like industry works since fortever. not like ford mondeo got recalled because hey, they got ford fluence out, so they'll conver them

22:20:11 nubbins`: obviously if the foundation is still producing new releases, it's going to be maintaining a seed list for that release, rather than just continuing to let the dead nodes build up

22:20:18 mircea_popescu: ok.

22:20:26 nubbins`: so if anyone particularly feels like they don't want their out of date unit to be so

22:20:41 nubbins`: they're 100% welcome to grab the latest foundation release, because obv it'll still work

22:20:50 nubbins`: it's just off-label usage as far as we're concerned.

22:21:43 nubbins`: ascii_field ^^ ?

22:21:57 danielpbarron: i know "time isn't really money" but however long it takes to upgrade one of these things is probably enough time to earn more than 20 USD working at McDonalds

22:22:22 mircea_popescu: danielpbarron the (actually sound) argument is that they won't be 20 forever, we're eating up a bubble of externalised cost.

22:32:02 trinque: mircea_popescu: 100% granted, that is a fine reason not to do it

22:32:15 mircea_popescu: i'm in no case saying that w/e, any one in b-a *couldn't * correctly implement what alf is proposing./

22:32:24 mircea_popescu: i am however saying that no one here can implement it in zero time.
