00:00:23 menahem: best = more intelligent

00:16:00 Naphex: oh wow, just read the news. so bitgo finally popped with the worst mistake they can make?;o

00:16:32 Naphex: gn.

00:18:42 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 100600 @ 0.00029935 = 30.1146 BTC [+]

00:32:29 Pierre_Rochard: Naphex: https://np.reddit.com/comments/33u8vq//cqofrit

00:32:32 assbot: vytah comments on Holy Satoshi! Butter pays 85Btc transaction fees for a 16Btc transaction. Is this the largest fee ever paid? ... ( http://bit.ly/1E6kISv )

00:32:36 Pierre_Rochard: “Captains of the industry. If they were captains of any other industry, like say for example automotive, we'd have people dying in car crashes between two stationary vehicles."

00:33:28 Naphex: :D good one!

00:35:18 trinque: "So what you're saying is that this currency of the future can destroy my savings because of an error and nobody is responsible?" << b-but, who will inforce what's fair?!

00:37:39 trinque: what is this obsession with making things safe, as though you don't still die in agony at the end?

00:37:53 trinque: and likely more agony because you fretted about it your whole miserable life

00:38:03 williamdunne: Responsibility is scary bro

00:42:54 trinque: Naphex: regarding earlier thread, things such as parsing inputs, putting sensitive data on networks that don't knock knees directly with the web, all great stuff

00:43:13 Naphex: oh, i tought you hated it

00:43:28 trinque: not at all; it'd be good not to get personality wrapped up in such discussions too

00:43:41 trinque: it's just, what would be better than the complex wad we have currently?

00:44:09 trinque: reading asciilifeform's blog and various excellent threads in the logs would be instructive there

00:44:18 trinque: I personally do not claim to have the answer, or I'd be typing from it

00:44:42 Naphex: dude, i was giving my 2 cents on what people can do to harden up

00:45:09 Naphex: no jimmies rustled. most of that stuff is necessary whenever you have more servers

00:45:16 Naphex: or have to internal networking

00:45:27 trinque: mhm

00:46:14 Naphex: but if you have nothing you will be fucked and quickly

00:46:30 Naphex: and not by the NSA, by some kid with some scripts

00:46:55 williamdunne: I just spent 30 minutes trying to work out why the hell my DB connection wasn't working. I was editing the wrong fucking config file.

00:48:53 trinque: Naphex: certainly, if one doesn't tape the raft's holes, he'll drown

00:49:16 Naphex: i see now that the term secure was the problem. how about hardened?

00:50:08 trinque: I can admire a survivor ingenuity, crafting spears from bamboo and all that

00:50:09 trinque: no harm in that

00:51:28 Naphex: well ain't that security?

00:51:29 scoopbot_revived: News! BitGo Bug Results In Loss Of User Funds By Way Of 85 BTC Fee URL: http://qntra.net/2015/04/bitgo-bug-results-in-loss-of-user-funds-by-way-of-85-btc-fee/

00:51:30 assbot: BitGo Bug Results In Loss Of User Funds By Way Of 85 BTC Fee | Qntra.net ... ( http://bit.ly/1E6qe7J )

00:52:14 Naphex: trinque: how would you define perfect security?

00:52:37 trinque: Naphex: I currently cannot; it would first require being able to model the whole system in my head at once

00:53:16 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 8486 @ 0.00029935 = 2.5403 BTC [-]

00:53:30 Naphex: so when you say system, how deep/high do we go?

00:55:02 trinque: Naphex: here's a good example by the way of what can be done with what we have: http://mpex.co/faq.html#18

00:55:51 trinque: Naphex: as far as what it means to have a fits-in-head system, please do read asciilifeform's material; he's far more qualified to say.

00:57:29 Naphex: trinque: that's airgapped gpg. you can implement gpg all over. Not sure how much airgapping it helps. A lot of sidechannel attacks comming up nowadays that can grab keys

00:57:59 Naphex: local is always a threat as well, no matter where you airgap

00:58:33 Naphex: having a annonymous ip is dandy. but no way anywhere near as enough. you still have to implement most of the stuff i said above especially the filtering part

00:58:42 Naphex: to defend from any exposing dos attacks

01:00:48 Naphex: anyway. i'm off. gn

01:18:03 Pierre_Rochard: williamdunne: had a similar head against wall bug yesterday, in pgsql: to_timestamp(‘2014-2’, ‘YYYY-Q’), doesn’t work because the docs clearly state “quarter (ignored by to_date and to_timestamp)” but it was three hours of desperate refactoring before I actually read them.

01:18:53 williamdunne: Its so easy to ignore the most simplistic bugs.. derpage galore.

01:20:01 Pierre_Rochard: I was outraged because the reason they ignore quarter (and don’t raise an error!) is because there’s no convention as to whether the date should be the beg or end of the quarter. Month, week, etc do the beginning, why not adopt that as the convention!?

01:20:47 Pierre_Rochard: anyway, lesson learned and appropriate duct tape applied

01:26:34 williamdunne: Conventions, are, like hard man

01:30:10 trinque: I'd love a proper emacs mode which could more or less "eldoc" postgresql functions

03:14:20 assbot: Logged on 25-04-2015 22:28:04; Naphex: anyway, what i was saying is you take steps 'secure' or tape your stuff always, and you don't feed raw data to your apps if you can filter the input beforehand.

03:14:51 *: asciilifeform raises periscope

03:15:00 mircea_popescu: how goes alf

03:15:08 asciilifeform: tired, l0l

03:15:17 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: this'd all benefit from a lot more documentation << which 'this'

03:15:39 mircea_popescu: the linked this. "my concept in particular"

03:16:04 mircea_popescu: ;;later tell thebutterzone yo, around ?

03:16:05 gribble: The operation succeeded.

03:16:49 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: concept alluded to was 'fits in head.' i suppose this is a good time and place to note that it can be accomplished in three basic ways: a) small system b) big head c) powerful hydraulic press

03:16:59 asciilifeform: or any combo of above.

03:17:08 asciilifeform: !up gabriel_laddel

03:17:11 mircea_popescu: dja see where there's a lot more room for documentation ?

03:17:16 asciilifeform: certainly

03:17:34 *: asciilifeform adds 'fits in head' likbez to middle of very long list

03:18:21 gabriel_laddel: About this "don't feed raw data into your app" and "filtering" nonsense - if you're using a language that isn't complete shit you never need to "filter data" (just communicate in sexprs and (let* ((*read-eval* nil)) ...))

03:18:33 asciilifeform: gabriel_laddel has it

03:18:36 gabriel_laddel: you should not have to parse anything - ever

03:18:45 gabriel_laddel: if you are parsing, you're doing it wrong

03:19:21 mircea_popescu: ;;later tell sfate hey.

03:19:21 gribble: The operation succeeded.

03:19:29 asciilifeform: (will note, for completeness, that this won't fly on, e.g., embedded chip with 32kB. but most of the usual suspects aren't stuck on one such)

03:20:15 mircea_popescu: gabriel_laddel perhaps you don't appreciate how deep perl goes, or how unaware perl-people are of their perl-ness.

03:20:44 gabriel_laddel: fuck em?

03:21:10 gabriel_laddel: I mean literally - steal their bitcoin, hack their bank accounts

03:21:17 gabriel_laddel: cause chaos

03:21:33 asciilifeform: 'certain languages support serious programmers, and others don't. e.g., I don't think it is at all possible to become a serious programmer using Visual Basic or Perl. if you think hard about what Perl code will do on the borders of the known input space, your head will explode. if you write Perl code to handle input problems gracefully, your programs will become gargantuan: the normal failure mode is to terminate with no id

03:21:33 asciilifeform: ea how far into the process you got or how much of an incomplete task was actually performed. in my view, serious programmers don't deal with tools that _force_ them to hope everything works.' -- herr naggum who else

03:21:41 mircea_popescu: i think the female reproductive system runs on perl.

03:21:42 mircea_popescu: what now ?

03:21:55 trinque: lotta derps out there that can be taught to better themselves.

03:22:02 trinque: I'm fucking 28 and learning CL *now*

03:24:28 mircea_popescu: i see nobody wishes to engage the cunt problem. but yes, IT DOES RUN ON PERL.

03:24:42 mircea_popescu: and here we are.

03:25:21 gabriel_laddel: in what sense? that it'll accept all sorts of odd inputs?

03:25:23 Pierre_Rochard: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=26-04-2015#1111248 < my former employer, was a great firm pre-1930, now just an extension of USG

03:25:51 mircea_popescu: gabriel_laddel how familiar with the process are you ? like, for instance, the simple (lol) ShouldAbort() function ?

03:26:13 mircea_popescu: Pierre_Rochard i suppose it's the next head on the chopping block after AA.

03:26:26 gabriel_laddel: I've had sex with a female if that's what you're asking.

03:26:34 mircea_popescu: not at all.

03:26:47 mircea_popescu: think about it : foetuses are sometimes aborted. on the basis of reasons.

03:26:49 mircea_popescu: when ? why ?

03:26:55 Pierre_Rochard: nah they’re too big to fail now, see http://www.forbes.com/sites/antoinegara/2015/04/15/ernst-young-settles-new-york-lehman-brothers-repo-105-deals/

03:27:01 mircea_popescu: pure perl.

03:27:24 mircea_popescu: Pierre_Rochard from what i see (and from what i know of these systems) there's periodically going to be a beheading.

03:27:30 *: asciilifeform tries to picture a variant where 'where, why' is accessible

03:27:43 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform it is, you can measure a lot about a pregnancy.,

03:27:48 gabriel_laddel: you're talking about the women in question purposefully aborting her pregnancy?

03:27:51 asciilifeform: - with instruments

03:27:54 gabriel_laddel: or miscarriage?

03:28:00 mircea_popescu: gabriel_laddel no, no, we're talking about the reproductive system itself.

03:28:11 asciilifeform: sure, fella with microscope can sometimes say why eject button got pressed

03:28:24 asciilifeform: but that isn't negating the 'perliness' of the basic apparatus, no ?

03:28:26 mircea_popescu: gabriel_laddel trisomies are usually aborted. spina bifida usually not. etc.

03:28:31 mircea_popescu: make sense of it, nobel prize is yours.

03:28:59 gabriel_laddel: yeah, I don't see the analogy to perl

03:29:04 mircea_popescu: really ?!

03:29:07 trinque: that nature is filthy hacks upon hacks?

03:29:08 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: pretty sure the example you cited is immunological

03:29:14 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform maybe.

03:29:15 Pierre_Rochard: mircea_popescu: they created PCAOB - para-govt auditor of auditors - to avoid beheadings and only chop off fingers/toes. Beheadings will have to come exogenously. For log, background on lehman accounting fraud: http://drillingthrough.com/lehman/

03:29:19 asciilifeform: (trisomies trigger tumour response)

03:29:29 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform some of them do.

03:29:38 gabriel_laddel: the reason we build abstract machines is because people are not very good at repetitive tasks.

03:29:43 mircea_popescu: iirc they proved some of them actually abord through some oxygenation pathway

03:29:49 mircea_popescu: gabriel_laddel this is cells.

03:30:00 mircea_popescu: cells are automatons.

03:30:08 gabriel_laddel: yes...?

03:30:19 mircea_popescu: humans don't enter into it, at that level.

03:30:31 gabriel_laddel: people are machines - but computer programs are not people, nor cells.

03:30:41 mircea_popescu: and it's perl for exactly the specified reason, " the normal failure mode is to terminate with no idea how far into the process you got or how much of an incomplete task was actually performed"

03:30:41 gabriel_laddel: we know how to write computer programs such that you don't need regexes.

03:30:52 gabriel_laddel: if you're /ever/ using them, you're doing it wrong.

03:30:58 mircea_popescu: many more similarities (like a pointed lack of sexprs), but let's keep it simple

03:31:07 mircea_popescu: so you're saying cunts are doing it wrong.

03:31:09 asciilifeform: gabriel_laddel: basic idea, perhaps, is that systems designed 'step at a time' by 'practical types' without any clear line of reason - will converge to resemble meat.

03:31:14 asciilifeform: as per l. lamport's essay

03:31:45 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform no, idea is that some people who can't even make dragonfly are in a weak position to teach grandmother to suck eggs, as it were.

03:32:20 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: if we get the stochasticity of meat, we also need to have the wide functional state space of meat.

03:32:26 asciilifeform: one without the other - is drowning in shit.

03:32:42 mircea_popescu: that may be. i'm just pointing out that biology offers a very significant challenge to theoretical cs.

03:32:47 mircea_popescu: in the perl aspect of things.

03:32:53 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 49650 @ 0.0003198 = 15.8781 BTC [+]

03:32:57 gabriel_laddel: This conversation bothers me. We don't understand how to make dragonflies, nor how the reproductive system works. We know how to write computer programs that work - the failing to do the latter correctly is a human failing.

03:33:06 mircea_popescu: is it ?

03:33:07 gabriel_laddel: analogy need not enter into the conversation

03:33:11 gabriel_laddel: it isn't necessary.

03:33:25 mircea_popescu: generally when an analogy need not enter into a conversation, it's a sign the conversation's broken.

03:33:35 gabriel_laddel: der fucking nonsense.

03:33:59 mircea_popescu: and mind you, at issue is not whether we do or don't understand how reproduction works.

03:34:07 mircea_popescu: at issue is that we understand enough to know it runs on perl.

03:34:45 mircea_popescu: which means that as long as you live, you will not live in a clean world.

03:34:54 gabriel_laddel: It doesn't run on "perl" "perl" is a well specified computer program. Meat runs another separate well specified meat program.

03:35:40 gabriel_laddel: which means that as long as you live, you will not live in a clean world. << select portions of humanity have, to varying degrees created "clean" computing.

03:35:51 mircea_popescu: take the simple fact that erycridine lactate induces abortion in any trimester, and without exception. if this isn't a regex gone wrong, what is ?

03:36:05 mircea_popescu: ethacridine*

03:36:57 gabriel_laddel: regexes are regexes - nothing elese is.

03:37:03 gabriel_laddel: not everything is the same thing.

03:37:05 mircea_popescu: (and if it were so well specified, we'd prolly know a lot more of it than we do)

03:37:20 mircea_popescu: so you dispute that there's ready biologic equivalents of a regexp match ?

03:38:15 mircea_popescu: you are aware organic molecules are actual strings.

03:38:38 gabriel_laddel: I wouldn't dare draw that equivalence without agreeing on a formal definition for regexes and the process in question.

03:38:51 mircea_popescu: how do you define a string ?

03:39:36 mircea_popescu: (this, incidentally, would be the lisp/perl difference imo. lisp does not have strings, perl does not have sexprs. in spite of pretending on each side)

03:40:17 gabriel_laddel: wtf is this. lisp doesn't have strings?

03:40:59 mircea_popescu: if you think about it, you said so yourself. "if you're /ever/ using them, you're doing it wrong."

03:41:00 gabriel_laddel: my first pass at a definition for a string: A string is a collection of characters from an alphabet.

03:41:13 mircea_popescu: organic molecules pass this.

03:41:19 gabriel_laddel: nah - if you're using regexes you're doing it wrong.

03:41:29 mircea_popescu: that's what strings are. "stuff you use regexps on"

03:41:37 gabriel_laddel: nonsense.

03:41:44 gabriel_laddel: I use strings all the time, don't use regexes

03:41:52 mircea_popescu: you're using fake lisp strings.

03:42:02 mircea_popescu: perl people think they're using "structured data" too.

03:42:05 mircea_popescu: it's all strings, but w/e.

03:42:24 gabriel_laddel: they can't do tree traversals on their "structured data"

03:42:30 mircea_popescu: exaclty.

03:42:33 gabriel_laddel: therefore they suck c0cks

03:42:35 mircea_popescu: and you can't do regexp on your "Strings"

03:42:38 mircea_popescu: therefore...

03:42:40 gabriel_laddel: ah, but I can

03:42:46 mircea_popescu: well, "can".

03:42:46 gabriel_laddel: I don't because it's stupid

03:42:49 mircea_popescu: right.

03:42:53 mircea_popescu: why do you think THEY don't ?

03:43:03 gabriel_laddel: because they're mentally defective

03:43:06 mircea_popescu: obviously.

03:43:37 gabriel_laddel: (I'm assuming you're saying "why don't you think they don't - do tree traversals")

03:43:45 mircea_popescu: right.

03:43:57 gabriel_laddel: I should note that "they" (algol programmers) try to add the tree traversal properties of lisp to their languages

03:44:03 gabriel_laddel: in every single language

03:44:08 mircea_popescu: so ?

03:44:12 gabriel_laddel: they all have failed, and will continue to fail

03:44:22 gabriel_laddel: so they waste a lot of effort doing it.

03:45:21 gabriel_laddel: this conversation is going in the direction of "heat death of the universe" so I'll note that companies that use e.g., scala have to hire a lot of people to regin in the complexity inherrent in ALGOL.

03:45:26 mircea_popescu: decimation nah, i'm just being unreasonably heterodox over here.

03:45:34 gabriel_laddel: hence, they waste money

03:45:57 mircea_popescu: gabriel_laddel this is a very minor point. the chief point, still standing, is that cunts still run on perl. there must be a reason for this.

03:45:58 gabriel_laddel: hence they'll be beaten in the marketplace by yours truly.

03:46:13 mircea_popescu: but even if there isn't a reason for this : it's so deeply baked into the structure of the world, you'll never be free of it.

03:46:25 gabriel_laddel: and...?

03:46:29 mircea_popescu: (because cunts obviously aren't free to choose what they use, so the need for perl must be way deeper than that)

03:46:33 mircea_popescu: that's all, no more.

03:46:37 gabriel_laddel: You'll never be entirely free of idiots

03:46:48 gabriel_laddel: that doesn't mean I should stop "butchering slugs"

03:46:59 decimation: how can anyone even make statements about what the female reproductive/baby system is doing without examining the results in each case, in molecular detail?

03:47:02 mircea_popescu: hey, splay that slit! no argument here.

03:47:03 gabriel_laddel: what aesthetic do you wish to live in?

03:47:07 trinque: fast and loose is fine if the product is somewhat disposable?

03:47:12 mircea_popescu: decimation enough to say "it's doing regexp"

03:47:27 mircea_popescu: trinque except the product of reproduction is perhaps the most expensive thing there is

03:49:41 gabriel_laddel: forever

03:49:51 trinque: mircea_popescu: seems like systems where there are a variety of ways to solve problems accept that they don't know the "perfect" way, if there is one

03:50:01 trinque: assuming lack of perfect knowledge having multiple things to try seems appropriate

03:50:02 decimation: mainly because jimmy carter banned recycling because it contained the word 'plutonium'

03:50:40 mircea_popescu: trinque the main problem here is that for a large number of solid considerations, lisp would actually be a much better choice. moreover, the space alf referred to is indeed vast, but the processes narrow. in many spots the whole tree converges to a very very narrow bottleneck.

03:54:46 asciilifeform: because designers did practically nuke the analogue soup. (yes, ram failures, etc. exist.)

03:55:06 mircea_popescu: i have no doubt you have still hope alf :)

03:56:06 trinque: mircea_popescu: right, so we're talking about the difference between systems which try to be general solutions to (not sure how to articulate it) vs specific tools which live in a given niche?

03:56:15 trinque: tools vs general meta-tools or something

03:56:16 mircea_popescu: im not even sure.

03:56:20 trinque: me either, lol

03:57:16 asciilifeform: i just can't help but recall kreinin's piece re: how folks who are asking for meat-like architecture 'whether they want a tool, or electronic best friend or sex partner' and asked whether 'they had tried the selection of naturally-occurring ones first'

03:57:35 mircea_popescu: mind that i am not proposing any change here.

03:57:49 mircea_popescu: i am merely pointing out that the perl-bashing has some serious problems in front of it.

03:58:15 trinque: converation with my biz partner comes to mind where he praised this old DOS point of sale

03:58:15 asciilifeform: nature's criterion of 'works' and mine, i will say, are not at all alike.

03:58:36 trinque: he could enter things like i 52345 s <ent> 3 <ent> and that would add inventory number whatever to the ticket 2 times

03:59:07 asciilifeform: i don't want to buy the office chair that is successful in cheaply making infinite copies of itself into the aeons. not unless it also parks my arse well.

03:59:18 trinque: and he still claims he's faster on that than any micros shit, ncr, or even more "modern" UI

03:59:36 asciilifeform: trinque: this is not a difficult standard to achieve

03:59:40 trinque: sure

03:59:57 trinque: but you could then go "oh but this is not a general interface with concepts applicable to any UI"

03:59:59 trinque: or something

04:00:05 trinque: seems relevant to the lisp vs perl thing

04:00:07 asciilifeform: trinque: but basic idea is that single-tasking, single-threaded box was inherently responsive

04:00:16 trinque: perl's an interface to a handful of problems, ignores other things

04:00:18 asciilifeform: it -had- to be

04:00:37 trinque: I was for example shocked to find an object system in CL as a layman

04:00:56 trinque: and a few months in I'm pretty sure it has goddamn everything, so to speak

04:01:05 trinque: any "paradigm" of programming you'd like to use

04:01:07 asciilifeform: trinque: because everywhere else on the planet 'object-oriented' is synonymous with 'profound retardation', yes

04:01:22 trinque: yeah, and I went to a school that did C++ and Java, and dropped out of that

04:01:30 gabriel_laddel: <trinque> seems relevant to the lisp vs perl thing << ummm... the angle I'm attacking this from is that meta-programming is inescapable and sexprs are the only sane way to go unless you want to program forth or APL.

04:01:32 trinque: then went on to do python and ruby in industry

04:01:49 trinque: it's a wonder I can hit the toilet with my ass

04:01:58 gabriel_laddel: we know how ALGOL and meta-programming (tree-traversals) interact

04:02:19 trinque: gabriel_laddel: sure, seems you need code to be data to do metaprogramming well

04:02:40 gabriel_laddel: not only that - you /must/ have a simple parsing algorithm, else upgrades are a bitch

04:03:05 gabriel_laddel: checkout the scala "macro" system sometime.

04:03:30 gabriel_laddel: s-expressions + read tables are the ultimate notational abstraction

04:04:12 trinque: way less mental fatigue looking at them, I've found

04:05:01 trinque: I have to run; cheers

04:05:06 asciilifeform: one observation of mine is that the abstraction that most determines the shape of a program is

04:05:10 asciilifeform: the unavailable one(s).

04:05:35 gabriel_laddel: way less mental fatigue looking at them, I've found << I suppose. One can learn to read most anything. The importance here is the triviality of generating "syntactically correct" program texts.

04:05:37 asciilifeform: think this way - if the problem were entirely contained in an -available- set of abstractions of the language, the program would not need to be written!

04:06:46 asciilifeform: (best program is no program.)

04:07:52 gabriel_laddel: !s brick lisp

04:07:53 assbot: 8 results for 'brick lisp' : http://s.b-a.link/?q=brick+lisp

04:10:41 gabriel_laddel: While we're here, I'll note that being tied to text (perl) is quite limiting. On CLIM today I can tell any object how to "present" itself, i.e., how to draw itself on the screen. Such a thing is unthinkable in a language based around regexes.

04:11:47 asciilifeform: gabriel_laddel: it is a mistake to describe perl as 'based on' anything in particular. it is soup, consisting of the entire contents of a crashed delivery van. soup reflective of what is to be found in the author's skullcase.

04:12:06 asciilifeform: this appeals to some people

04:12:12 asciilifeform: for a variety of reasons

04:13:06 asciilifeform: partly because it makes a convincing simulacrum of problem-solving, as (per naggum) hollywood special effects 'may as well be the real thing'

04:13:32 asciilifeform: partly because it allows imbeciles to feel as if they are 'sticking the finger' to those boring 'squares' who actually take the time to think things through

04:14:40 asciilifeform: partly because perl proggies tend to be 'throw-aways' and absolve the author of the burden of actually carrying anything through to completion or (horror) supporting

04:15:12 asciilifeform: but also for many other reasons, which i will not waste readers' time on.

05:19:54 mircea_popescu: i would suspect maybe trustless is a misnomer. trust is not involved at all, the point is coherence. the system remains coherent, which is to say it does not fork into ambiguous states.

05:20:07 mircea_popescu: maybe the best description would be "immutable, fungible and entropic"

05:20:30 mircea_popescu: because that is the property here : same as entropy, bitcoin lacks the ability to review earlier states on the base of later states.

05:21:51 mircea_popescu: so described, it is rather clear that bitcoin can not in fact exist : immutability and entropy are mutually contradictory.

05:23:23 jayk: is it worth throwing any money at a mining pool these days with bitcoin being flat?

05:24:01 cazalla: jayk, let someone else bare the cost and just buy coins straight up

05:24:25 jayk: better to buy them right now then

12:55:25 mircea_popescu: fluffypony that aside, how does this thing solve situatiosn where dns zones are ambiguous ? (say registrar and host don't match)

12:56:04 fluffypony: the registrar doesn't set DNS records, necessarily, only what the nameservers are (ie. SOA)

12:56:19 mircea_popescu: right

12:56:27 mircea_popescu: but it might.

12:56:43 fluffypony: since DNSSEC follows a signature chain back to the root zone your ISP's DNS server can't fake the record

12:56:47 mircea_popescu: (im still trying to understand exactly how this works)

12:56:48 fluffypony: or even pretend it doesn't exist

12:56:55 mircea_popescu: right.

12:57:42 fluffypony: that said, a DNSSEC fail is a soft fail (as not all zones support DNSSEC at this stage) - so it'll present the address for user validation

12:58:01 mircea_popescu: so it can't be used in unattended systems ?

12:58:26 fluffypony: as long as it treats a DNSSEC as a hard fail it can

12:58:36 mircea_popescu: "By leveraging DNSSEC we are able to prevent MITM-style attacks on an alias." doesn't tell me very much.

12:58:53 fluffypony: ok

12:59:01 mircea_popescu: "What is OpenAlias? OpenAlias seeks to provide a way to simplify aliasing amidst a rapidly shifting technology climate. " << i mean come on.

12:59:13 mircea_popescu: you folk gotta hire someone to do proper tech writing. there's nothing wrong with having sales copy,

12:59:20 mircea_popescu: but i gotta be able to figure out what stuff is too!

12:59:47 fluffypony: then skip the About section, that's all sales blurb :-P

12:59:57 mircea_popescu: ok but skip to where

13:00:05 fluffypony: Implement

13:00:54 mircea_popescu: ie "What is the application-side process?" ?

13:01:41 fluffypony: that's what you would do in your application if you were implementing lookups

13:02:02 fluffypony: or just run this: https://github.com/openalias/openalias-api

13:02:03 assbot: openalias/openalias-api · GitHub ... ( http://bit.ly/1DMSngJ )

13:02:27 fluffypony: (preferably with dnscrypt-proxy running, and point it at that)

13:05:04 mircea_popescu: mkay. well i'm exiting this process with message "a project to provide bitcoin-deanonymizers with a domain-address pairing method, powered by the general public's expectations of convenience and lack of expectation of guarantees" which sums up to "fluff".

13:05:41 fluffypony: yes, hence why it was originally created for Monero, where your address is reusable

13:06:11 mircea_popescu: so if i posion dns cache, can i also steal payments for that domain ?

13:06:16 fluffypony: nope

13:06:26 fluffypony: not unless you have their DNSSEC private keys

13:06:35 mircea_popescu: suppose i do.

13:06:51 mircea_popescu: because you know, usg keeps a master key, or so the rumour goes.

13:07:20 fluffypony: well they could always use Namecoin instead

13:07:53 mircea_popescu: the complexity brtought about any attempt to implement "convenience" is outright staggering huh.
