00:18:11 deedbot-: [Contravex: A blog by Pete Dushenski » Contravex: A blog by Pete Dushenski] BitBet is THE prediction market, which means it’s basically a megaphone. - http://www.contravex.com/2015/09/24/bitbet-is-the-prediction-market-which-means-its-basically-a-megaphone/

00:25:01 BingoBoingo: Oh MPIF is in on the Trump bet https://bitbet.us/bet/1206/donald-trump-gets-republican-nomination/#b5

00:25:02 assbot: BitBet - Donald Trump gets Republican Nomination :: 10.24 B (57%) on Yes, 7.84 B (43%) on No | closing in 6 months 2 weeks | weight: 99`567 (100`000 to 1) ... ( http://bit.ly/1Pzg83A )

00:25:12 mircea_popescu: ha.

00:25:16 mircea_popescu: almost even odds by now ?

00:26:07 BingoBoingo: Yeah, Looks like it is just you and the smaller MPIF share betting on trump so far with everyone else offering odds

00:27:17 mircea_popescu: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=24-09-2015#1284785 << pay BACK the VCs ? da fuck's wrong with you!

00:27:17 assbot: Logged on 24-09-2015 13:50:30; hdbuck: raspi + 3D printed case! they'll sell at least 100 of them, so that's around $1.2 million a piece to pay back the VCs. i am waiting for the « toasters » tho.

00:27:34 mircea_popescu: you don't pay the credit card, you move the balance on a bigger credit card. duh.

00:28:18 mircea_popescu: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=24-09-2015#1284796 << i suspek that's what they were trying to do with the sha1.

00:28:18 assbot: Logged on 24-09-2015 14:13:39; asciilifeform: if the protocol had been designed by sane people, ALL SIGNATURES WOULD HAVE SAME FORMAT regardless of for what the signature is - for a file, or for the key itself, whatever

00:28:30 mircea_popescu: and yes it will have to be redone if nothing else then for that reason.

00:29:32 mircea_popescu: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=24-09-2015#1284802 << how fast do you expect to go in traffic ? 200W should be enough at the 1mph speed provided your bearings aren't made out of clay.

00:29:32 assbot: Logged on 24-09-2015 14:20:54; asciilifeform: (a panel which fits on a passenger car roof - let's even assume one on the hood, as well - would be lucky to pick up 200W at high noon on a cloudless day.)

00:31:57 mircea_popescu: https://i.imgur.com/xTTVeOb.jpg << dude who stole my cat.

00:31:58 assbot: ... ( http://bit.ly/1YD9fEy )

00:33:51 mircea_popescu: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=24-09-2015#1284827 << he has a point. the notion of putting http in there but then going "The settlement part isn?t covered by the document, for the pretty simple reason that settlement is a business matter, not a technical challenge. It would also vastly complicate everything." is pretty wild.

00:33:51 assbot: Logged on 24-09-2015 15:32:14; jurov: it would work fine with gpg mpex-style

00:34:13 mircea_popescu: if you are going to put something, put pgp. not pki, and in no case http for a stateful machine.

00:34:29 mircea_popescu: ("https" is not a thing. it's a flavor of usg-pki. burn it.)

00:35:12 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 9794 @ 0.0007319 = 7.1682 BTC [-]

00:37:14 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 3900 @ 0.00073785 = 2.8776 BTC [+]

00:37:14 mircea_popescu: also the correct way to handle this is through some sort of repo agreement. "A agrees to receive any sums from B throughout today, Sept 25th, and remit no later than by Sept 26th, at 8:00 gmt at address so and so a sum of btc equal to : the sum of btc received ; plus the sum of X currency received divided by Vx ; plus the sum of Y currency received divided by Vy ; plus [etc]."

00:37:54 mircea_popescu: this way B can send any payments its customers want, and A will idem send whatever payments its customers want, and at the end of the day the whole balance is BTC settled at the agreed upon price and that's that.

00:38:16 mircea_popescu: it can just be published as an item, you don't even need a "connection" between the two.

00:44:03 mircea_popescu: in other news, the pin of the association of plastic surgeons from lima, peru depicts as a logo a stylisized cunt.

00:45:22 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 19049 @ 0.00073421 = 13.986 BTC [-]

00:47:54 BingoBoingo: Nice

00:48:23 mircea_popescu: last fucking place you want the dudes to get involved, the cunt and the other set of labia.

00:48:38 mircea_popescu: hands off the functional parts, yo! stick to tits and hips and whatnot

00:50:59 BingoBoingo: Seriously

00:51:12 BingoBoingo: It's nice that they put that warning up there

00:51:40 BingoBoingo: "Don't get anesthesia in Peru, They mess with the functional parts"

00:51:49 mircea_popescu: "Adopting Russian Orthodox Christian terminology for an important house of worship, the building is called the Moscow Cathedral Mosque. Its main golden dome and tall minaret reflected the style of many Orthodox churches, except for the Islamic crescents atop them."

00:51:55 mircea_popescu: lol stalinism survived, huh.

01:06:09 mircea_popescu: notrly news is it ?

01:09:52 BingoBoingo: Nah, "Trend Piece" aka not news that sneaks into the news

01:13:17 mircea_popescu: Stroustrup said: ?You can write C++ programs that are statically type safe and have no resource leaks. You can do that without loss of performance and without limiting C++?s expressive power. This supports the general thesis that garbage collection is neither necessary nor sufficient for quality software. Our core C++ guidelines makes such code simpler to write than older styles of C++ and the safety can be validat

01:13:38 mircea_popescu: check it out asciilifeform, "experts at Morgan Stanley" fixed the world!

01:14:07 BingoBoingo: Seems Stroustrup really went senile

01:17:01 mircea_popescu: but on the subject : the only thing that matters is the value transferred. any other approach is a waste of time.

01:17:10 mircea_popescu: you gotta meter what txn they pass you and score them.

01:17:10 BingoBoingo: Further news in 'Murican manufactering http://thesouthern.com/news/local/state-and-regional/caterpillar-now-is-not-the-time-for-peoria-headquarters/article_f1e69229-7903-599d-968c-3a42fac74b96.html

01:17:49 phf: mircea_popescu: it's already done! afaik ben_vulpes and gernika both have a mac built using my approach

01:18:00 mircea_popescu: didja publish it ?

01:19:52 mircea_popescu: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=24-09-2015#1285041 << we can already do this using iptables like god intended. it didn't practically help in the field if you recall.

01:19:52 assbot: Logged on 24-09-2015 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"

01:20:49 mircea_popescu: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=24-09-2015#1285049 << that's ok, china is not an adult place.

01:20:49 assbot: Logged on 24-09-2015 21:57:49; ascii_field: but that is not an adult answer.

01:21:31 mod6: oh speaking of eulora, is the new version out?

01:21:35 mircea_popescu: ayup.

01:21:39 mod6: nice :]

01:22:22 mircea_popescu: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=24-09-2015#1285073 << this is a point that perhaps may pass unnoticed and trip people i think.

01:22:22 assbot: Logged on 24-09-2015 22:12:13; ascii_field: (eatblock is a locking operation)

01:22:51 mircea_popescu: machine can not do anything else during, if you're say making a large tarball at the same time odds are you'll cry.

01:23:49 mod6: ahyeah http://minigame.bz/eulora/binaries/ << found it.

01:23:50 assbot: ... ( http://bit.ly/1VEKczm )

01:25:01 mod6: so asciilifeform & mircea_popescu, I added a sync mechinism for V. but wanted to discuss it a bit, not sure if it's whats really ideal or anything.

01:25:10 mircea_popescu: do tell ?

01:25:47 mod6: so, to start, I dropped the vpatches, wot pub keys, and seals (sigs of vpatches) into a webirectory here: http://thebitcoin.foundation/v/

01:25:48 assbot: Index of /v ... ( http://bit.ly/1KTlXJl )

01:26:35 mod6: this way when one clicks on a node in the directed grap (from before), it takes you to the actual vpatch. anyway...

01:26:48 mircea_popescu: aha

01:27:06 BingoBoingo: http://thesouthern.com/news/local/communities/carbondale/grubbs-to-get-pay-raise-stipend-to-move-into-carbondale/article_a8840cd8-a507-5499-9a22-183c688d010c.html << $15,000 rent stipend. When I was there rented for $3,600/year fucking inflation

01:27:08 assbot: Grubbs to get pay raise, stipend to move into Carbondale city limits : Carbondale ... ( http://bit.ly/1KTm0F4 )

01:27:12 mod6: one possibility to publish releases in the future now that we have V is to create a manifest of V patches and have the co-chairs sign the manifest, as well as the patches.

01:27:44 mod6: so for instance, I've made http://thebitcoin.foundation/v/TEST2.manifest, so far unsigned as its just for testing my code for a minute here..

01:27:45 assbot: 404 Not Found ... ( http://bit.ly/1KTm6wk )

01:27:56 mod6: not found? wth

01:29:23 mircea_popescu: i think this is the correct approach. also i like it.

01:29:34 phf: mircea_popescu: i did not publish the instructions, i will update http://www.eulorum.org/OS_X

01:29:36 assbot: OS X - Eulorum ... ( http://bit.ly/1KTmdbo )

01:29:46 mod6: So I added subroutines to pull all patches, wots and seals from the foundation site, and/or audit what's already local by checking the local vpatch hashes against the manifest.

01:29:58 mod6: or you can pull individual patches if one likes.

01:30:08 mircea_popescu: phf you gonna get in game to get your pile of woooly shrooms ?

01:30:22 mircea_popescu: spiffy mod6

01:30:24 mod6: (incase there are patches added to the site webdirectory that are not included in the release manifest)

01:30:29 mod6: thanks :]

01:30:40 mod6: also, i'm leaving some room here for mirrors.

01:30:44 BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: http://qntra.net/2015/09/india-imposes-and-us-considers-tariffs-on-hot-rolled-steel/#comment-60869

01:30:59 phf: mircea_popescu: yes, once i do the publishing

01:31:00 mod6: we could have a signed list of mirrors in the same location as the manifest so that there is some redundancy

01:31:52 mod6: anyway sorry for the verbosity, thanks for listening. just wanted to see if I was on the right track before I get too far along.

01:33:21 mircea_popescu: seems lovely mod6

01:33:57 mod6: ty, having fun building it. :]

01:42:06 asciilifeform: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=25-09-2015#1285158 << this picture is not correct. 'locking' here refers to literal lock, the global big fat lock in bitcoind, the one that makes it only pseudo-multithreaded on account of just about every major routine hogging it

01:42:34 mircea_popescu: it does fucking lock the io somehow.

01:42:44 asciilifeform: (for n00bz - consider a lock as analogous to an airplane toilet door)

01:46:27 mircea_popescu: yeah but they were "oh, you know what, sigs for THIS really need to be dependably known"

01:46:38 asciilifeform: perhaps.

01:46:53 asciilifeform: and no less so than if it had been designed to be.

02:00:55 mircea_popescu: gotta have something. what he got ?

02:01:26 mircea_popescu: "some bum said some things nobody card about" ? he doesn't want it to be like that.

02:01:54 mircea_popescu: he wants to pretend he's sorta kinda like me, were i to exist (which i don't, OOOOBVIOUSLY). so...

02:02:15 asciilifeform: ;;later tell mod6 http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=25-09-2015#1285169 << the way i suggested doing it is to avoid having multiple classes of signed objects. manifest for a release would be merely another kind of patch - one that simply takes every leaf that is to form part of the release head, and add a comment to the top of the file, 'REL-xxx.' this auto-gloms the leaves into a single patch 'handle', think about it.

02:02:15 assbot: Logged on 25-09-2015 01:27:12; mod6: one possibility to publish releases in the future now that we have V is to create a manifest of V patches and have the co-chairs sign the manifest, as well as the patches.

02:02:15 gribble: The operation succeeded.

02:02:59 asciilifeform: ;;later tell mod6 after this, anyone who wants to build THAT release merely needs to 'grab' ~that~ patch and 'v' does the rest.

02:02:59 gribble: The operation succeeded.

02:03:16 asciilifeform: this property of a system is called 'orthogonality'

02:03:22 asciilifeform: it is the thing children like about 'lego'

02:03:26 Pierre_Rochard: BingoBoingo: rent wasn’t actually that much, ~3 people’s salaries. Employed ~70 people

02:03:27 asciilifeform: there is precisely 1 kind of thing.

02:03:46 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i thought he just meant signing patches.

02:03:56 BingoBoingo: Pierre_Rochard: Interesting. I would have thought nice place downtown in the cool area would have cost more.

02:03:58 mod6: asciilifeform: hey, thanks for your input/thoughts there.

02:04:03 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: as i understood it, he was speaking of signing manifests

02:04:31 asciilifeform: but this way, a release is simply a vpatch that adds a 'this is part of such-and-such release' comment to a set of files in such a way that the desired leaves are brought into the release.

02:04:35 mircea_popescu: no, just make a special patch (for historical reasons called a manifest) that does exactly what you describe

02:04:44 asciilifeform: then yes.

02:04:51 mircea_popescu: well it's what i read anyway.

02:05:12 mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo you don't understand. it's not the place that's cheap

02:05:18 asciilifeform: this way, no one who wants to get a release ever needs to do anything but ordinary operation of 'v'.

02:05:20 mircea_popescu: it's dumbass "employees" doing nothing that are EXPENSIVE

02:05:28 Pierre_Rochard: ^^^ that

02:05:31 asciilifeform: no screwing with pgp separately, no untarring, etc.

02:05:49 mircea_popescu: could have had a stable of indians doing the same job for 1.5% of the cost and 0.0x% of the liabilities.

02:06:05 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: perhaps they had a stable of indians also

02:06:06 mod6: right, i want the sync mech to work inside of the bounds of V.

02:06:18 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform perhaps they fucked madonna as well.

02:06:20 mircea_popescu: what's it do for them ?

02:06:48 Pierre_Rochard: asciilifeform: no indians, a few argentinians (great devs fwiw)

02:06:51 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: it is actually very common in usa software shops. indians produce mountain of horror, and then a handful of other people - clean it

02:06:56 mircea_popescu: yeah, great devs.

02:07:03 mircea_popescu: they sit around and talk a splendid talk.

02:08:57 asciilifeform: i confess to having wondered if anyone in .ar writes software

02:09:06 mod6: ok so. release vpatch would be creating a new vertex that has edges coming from the current leafs.

02:09:12 mircea_popescu: they mostly like to write ~about~ things.

02:09:14 mod6: am I understanding that correctly?

22:36:34 HostFat: as I remember, they were both of 0.1 BTC

22:37:00 HostFat: maybe I can even find the addresses ...

22:37:37 mircea_popescu: ok, so what's the problem ?

22:37:57 HostFat: "rejected props get refunded as it gets around to it"

22:38:05 HostFat: what did you mean by saying this?

22:38:19 mircea_popescu: that within a day or two you should have hat the 0.1 or w/e it was refunded.

22:38:51 HostFat: eh, I think that it is passed more than a month :)

22:38:52 mircea_popescu: like you know, 14 weeks ago

22:39:05 mircea_popescu: well, what was the return address you specified ?

22:39:33 HostFat: I'm not sure that I've wrote it

22:39:38 HostFat: maybe I missed it

22:39:41 mircea_popescu: then how would bitbet send you refund ?

22:41:37 mircea_popescu: i mean, if you look at the top bet right now on the list (24-09-2015 Rejected Namibia Vs New Zealand)

22:43:15 mircea_popescu: going coupla months back or so.

22:45:09 HostFat: so is it possible to make new bets without writing any address?

22:45:46 HostFat: I could even used a multisig addresses, is it compatible with your script?

22:46:06 mircea_popescu: well it's also possible to send bitcoins to address 1qwertyuiop etc. bitbet doesn't have a ready way to know.

22:46:23 mircea_popescu: but i guess a warning if the field value doesn't verify as an address may be a good idea, when kakobrekla has some time for this.

22:47:09 HostFat: I'm more on the idea that I didn't put anything than a wrong address

23:02:00 mircea_popescu: anyway, since you're looking at it : can you change "new bet" to "new prop" in the header

23:03:03 kakobrekla: and bets bets

23:03:47 mircea_popescu: lolwuty!

23:04:13 kakobrekla: bets have bets, no ?

23:04:32 mircea_popescu: props have bets

23:04:50 kakobrekla: but when prop is accepted it becomes a bet

23:04:55 kakobrekla: and it collects ... bets.

23:04:58 mircea_popescu: a urrite, "NEW BETS" => NEW PROPS

23:05:27 mircea_popescu: no, the idea is, the previous meaning of the word "Bet" as in, the page with a description and so forth, is now called prop

23:05:38 mircea_popescu: the individual quanta of money sent to a prop, were and remain "bets"

23:06:14 mircea_popescu: Active bets: 44 > active props: 44

23:06:44 mircea_popescu: "BROWSE BETS" => BROWSE PROPS

23:06:45 punkman: could change individual bets to "wagers"

23:07:06 mircea_popescu: yeah but it's six letters.

23:07:11 kakobrekla: the url is bitbet.us/bet/xxx

23:07:23 mircea_popescu: kakobrekla that i don't care about.

23:07:59 mircea_popescu: there's no rule that urls are metasyntactical

23:08:16 mircea_popescu: yeah

23:08:38 mircea_popescu: "THE BET" can stay as it is.

23:08:49 mircea_popescu: no, SHOULD stay as it is. it's a proposition of a bet.

23:08:59 mircea_popescu: fucking english is useless, btw.

23:09:07 kakobrekla: are we still discussing bitbet?

23:56:07 mircea_popescu: in other words : inner city blacks are subhuman, and not a proper example in this discussion.
