07:30:14 davout: good morning

07:30:27 jurov: hi davout

07:41:19 fluffypony: davout: morning

07:41:39 fluffypony: davout: so now that bitcoin-central is going to cease to exist in its current form, does that mean the bet is a yes?

07:42:52 jurov: afaik it will just continue as pyamium

07:43:07 jurov: pamium

07:43:10 jurov: paymum

07:43:12 jurov: argh

07:43:27 fluffypony: yes - but the bet was specific, no?

07:44:40 jurov: i bet that it will be decided in other way as the iOS one :D

07:45:08 Apocalyptic: as formulated the bet is tied to the domain Bitcoin-central.net

07:45:57 fluffypony: I was under that impression too

07:47:53 punkman: I don't see why a simple name change is a problem

07:49:14 jurov: no it only says about end of operations or low volume

07:49:18 jurov: neither is the case

07:49:48 jurov: and since the domain itself will be redirected to paymium where you can log in with your old creds

07:49:58 jurov: i don't see any reason to close it as No

07:50:32 Apocalyptic: <jurov> and since the domain itself will be redirected to paymium where you can log in with your old creds // you have a point

07:50:57 pankkake: I agree with jurov. redirect + nothing else changes

07:51:06 pankkake: but that's not up to us, is it? :)

07:53:35 jurov: http://bitbet.us/bet/867/x-eur-contract-monthly-renewal-canceled-in-2014/?ref=1EteoRKNYbNhhmFfsKnUSWRF3JUpKCcMnc but this got my attention

08:01:49 punkman: jurov, maybe because there is so little volume

08:04:45 jurov: that needs time ( and margin ;) )

08:41:35 Apocalyptic: it would kako

08:41:44 Apocalyptic: doesn't contradict the fact he has a point imo

08:42:21 Apocalyptic: the bet clearly states "Bitcoin-central.net will cease exchanging BTC [...]"

08:42:38 Apocalyptic: not Bitcoin-Central as an entity

08:42:54 kakobrekla: "redirect to another url and login with same info" is worth 0.

10:29:06 jurov: "redirect it to some x site using the stolen logins. would fit description." how so?

10:29:26 jurov: 1. they'd need to keep volume till bet closes

10:29:53 jurov: 2. there'd be official announcement from b-c

10:30:08 kakobrekla: nah

10:30:24 kakobrekla: i open bitcoin-central and see some porn site, i login with my bc login and it works

10:30:59 jurov: and how would pr0n site avoid tripping on these two conditions?

10:31:09 kakobrekla: just saying that "go to the url and login and see if it works" is shitty argument

10:31:30 jurov: it does *not* wotk as the bet says

10:32:00 jurov: whereas b-c -> paymium will fullfill the bet conditions

10:32:43 jurov: what if paymium will be fullscreen iframe in bitcoin-central.net ? what now?

10:34:55 kakobrekla: ;;google bongwater what if

10:36:11 jurov: heh. but the point stands, it is the equvalent of redirect and it's actually one of unfavorable memories of mine as sysadmin

10:42:00 kakobrekla: <jurov> 1. they'd need to keep volume till bet closes < can you verify the volume is true?

10:42:58 jurov: can you do it now, while it is b-c?

10:43:06 kakobrekla: exactly.

10:43:36 jurov: not many complaints, so it's generally accepted as non-fake

10:44:44 kakobrekla: so at what complaint-rate is it not generally accepted as non-fake?

10:44:52 jurov: maybe davout bribes erryone, what do we know

10:45:48 jurov: i'd say 100kB/day

10:46:03 kakobrekla: plain or rich text?

10:46:54 davout: kakobrekla: bc was a fake all along, having never provably started it can therefore not provably stop operating, and its volume has always been imaginary, therefore it can't drop, therefore bet resolves as 'No'

10:47:07 jurov: well, that's actually for bitbet to set the limit... and if memepics are to be included, too

10:47:33 kakobrekla: thanks for the clarification davout .

10:47:39 jurov: i can vouch they sent me completely imaginary euros to my account

10:47:39 kakobrekla: ;)

13:42:00 mircea_popescu: da fuck is with that place.

13:42:51 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform, suggestion : move to istanbul for the week. free airfare if hyou got the miles, like 100 a night for downtown hotel

13:42:52 asciilifeform: they drive $30k+ machines.

13:43:09 asciilifeform: usa is a very peculiar animal

13:43:14 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [RENT] 50 @ 0.00523 = 0.2615 BTC [-]

13:43:46 asciilifeform: ended up driving self and pet over to my consulting shop, where the toilets never fail.

13:43:47 mircea_popescu: bitcoinpete: there honestly aren't enough hours in a day to document "all the scams" << he may well have a pooint.

13:44:02 asciilifeform: (an industrial district)

13:44:03 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform, so now you finally get to sleep with your work ?

13:44:42 asciilifeform: went to bed around 4 in the morning. now seems like the story repeats.

13:45:46 mircea_popescu: pankkake:

13:45:46 mircea_popescu: benkay: I was thinking of starting a general shorting fund - sell shares that mimic shares in every way (pay same divs, buyback at vwap after X months). sell the shares at a discount to make them more appealing than real shares << mpex did this early on, but it was a political move to crush the idiots that thought they can make a glbse club. i doubt it'll be financially productive, you'll either fake volume a la btct

13:45:47 mircea_popescu: hl et all or else do half a bitcoin's trade out of 500 idjits.

13:47:22 mircea_popescu: benkay:HeySteve: nonsense. << it's not nonsense in any way. naked shorts are the instrument of evil. women should be always naked, shorts always covered. the us is doing it exaclty backwards.

13:50:04 mircea_popescu: benkay: afaik there's no way to evaluate the float on mpex. you just gotta trust mircea_popescu. << no, this is why the dividend payments work the way they do. mpex will a) not let you pay fewer shares than there are and b) issue you a signed receipt which includes that number.

13:50:20 mircea_popescu: so you get mpex-audited float every time yoyu pay a dividend.

13:54:45 asciilifeform: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m6YtVnl-AQE

13:54:46 assbot: dig - YouTube

13:54:52 mircea_popescu: thestringpuller: password is used in two places unfortunately two very important places << that was a pretty shitty password.

13:55:07 mircea_popescu: pls to read up on dicelists.

13:55:15 asciilifeform: (pool from destroyed pipe visible on bottom of trench)

13:55:53 asciilifeform: they also have this weird custom, where a trench of an active pipe project is filled in with asphalt every time, even if work is not done - because driving is sacred. must be drivable over.

13:56:10 mircea_popescu: artifexd: I was thinking about Ubuntu but apparently they suck for reasons that are unclear to me. <<< dependency hell and a bad case of code rot.

13:56:13 asciilifeform: the result is pounded flat using a gigantic machine that sends shock waves everywhere

13:56:15 mircea_popescu: but w/e, you can probably use it.

13:56:24 asciilifeform: windows rattle, anything not bolted down shakes loose, etc.

13:57:12 asciilifeform: as for the paraders - from the lack of habitable building, went to see the fscking parade. and this is what it looked like:

13:57:14 asciilifeform: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9h97SPKc2nY

13:57:14 assbot: parade - YouTube

13:57:15 mircea_popescu: looks pretty romanian asciilifeform

13:59:23 artifexd: mircea_popescu: I decided on arch linux although I'm still evaluating desktop environments/window managers.

13:59:47 artifexd: I plan on moving all my server ops to coreos so the centos thing won't be an issue.

14:00:10 mircea_popescu: gotta try around a little. as is typical of open source, diff things work for diff jobs.

14:00:27 mircea_popescu: i wouldn't run a server on ubuntu, but if making a system for an ex windows person prolly still best choiuce,

14:01:40 mircea_popescu: benkay: the people with the money to implement dumb crypto things are never going to select professional services people for execution who say things like "what you are trying to build is not possible to build". << pretty much exactly.

14:01:46 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: the soviet tale didn't end there. i come back, trench is filled, sewer - same state. call bureaucrats, they promise to test. wake up, there's a note, claiming that 'tested, works, if still having problem, your problem.' i pick up phone, turns out the fellow testing had no idea there was pipe work at all. it was done by contractors, see, and the city 'had no idea.'

14:01:51 mircea_popescu: which is why the rape of the people with fiat by bitcoin is so fucking essential.

14:02:13 mircea_popescu: capital doesn't belong with the idiots currently holding it. they don't know what to do with it, other than pay people to falsely claim they do know what to do with i.t

14:02:51 mircea_popescu: lol i c. so what did htey test, the secretaries' lower piping ?

14:03:09 chetty: prolly to see if the trench was filled

14:03:11 asciilifeform: most likely, nothing. just read a flow sensor somewhere.

14:04:37 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform, so are you sueing your landlord ?

14:06:44 mircea_popescu: princessnell: not exactly keep living, but maximize probability of the highest possible degree of genetic transmission. but you get my drift. << iget your drift, i just don't perceive any substance to it. can you prove your purpose is more to convey your own genetic material than to convey the genetic material of the e coli you're very comfortably keeping at a pleasant temperature deep inside, and strive to keep well

14:06:44 mircea_popescu: fed and so forth ?

14:08:19 mircea_popescu: bitcoinpete: i would've thought he was the exact opposite << this, incidentally, is how you know you've buddha'd. various people reading your stuff come to exactly opposite conclusions on fundamental topics such as "what is the purpose of meaning"

14:08:38 mircea_popescu: ima go out and celebrate this great achievement.

14:12:07 mircea_popescu: and you two as well as anyone interested is invited to a full debate of this matter, to take place statring 8pm today, my time. which is roughly in nine hours. then maybe we can get to the bottom of it

14:12:19 mircea_popescu: and if not it, a nice round bottom anyway.

14:12:51 fluffypony: ah at 1am I am definitely going to be drunkish or asleep

14:13:01 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: landlord lives in CA. he's nothing to do with this crap.

14:13:31 mircea_popescu: fluffypony, apparently diogenes kyon was perpetualloy both, is still remembered.

14:13:40 asciilifeform: (fellow used to live in the house, unable to sell, ended up renting it out, quite possibly at a loss)

14:13:42 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform, you are renting from him correct ?

14:13:48 mircea_popescu: that means he has everything to do with it.

14:13:52 mircea_popescu: ah

14:14:16 asciilifeform: might sue the city, though, if this carries on.

14:14:21 mircea_popescu: one wonders why unable to sell

14:14:33 mircea_popescu: anyway, the trick with suing is to make up your mind quick and let the papers fly the next day.

14:14:47 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: almost certainly same reason as the various folks i know in this position - term of art, i think, is 'underwater'

14:15:36 mircea_popescu: "It has just been announced now that UTA, the union of bus drivers, will convoke a full strike for ALL buses(colectivos y micros , which means city and long distance buses) for this Wednesday, 28 May starting at 0000 in ALL OF ARGENTINA!."

14:15:39 chetty: your tax money, hard at work

14:16:36 asciilifeform: speaking of vehicles, there were... moto-tricycles in the parade. wtf is the point ?!

14:16:42 asciilifeform: of such a machine

14:16:53 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform, ask an engineer, what do i know :D

14:17:10 asciilifeform: as i understand, all the down-sides of a normal auto and motorcycle in one package.

14:17:29 asciilifeform: takes up a full lane, yet still the same crunchy death if you wreck it

14:18:02 asciilifeform: resembles a tractor more than anything else

14:18:31 mircea_popescu: i wouldn't own or drive one

14:18:48 mircea_popescu: but perhaps... it's cheaper than a car and doesn't need your foot on the ground like a bike ?

14:18:51 mircea_popescu: so "win-win"

14:19:19 asciilifeform: looked it up, they seem to cost about the same as a nice toyota

14:19:35 asciilifeform: so, my suspicion, folks who want the 'l33t' of motorbike, but without the study.

14:19:54 mircea_popescu: o look at that, amazon being a little bitch.

14:20:06 mircea_popescu: gravy train coming to an end, in a decade nobody will even remember who bezos was.

18:49:01 mircea_popescu: see the thing is, your system may actually SAVe the miners thousands of dollars.

18:49:13 mircea_popescu: because they load it in the mempool and chainmine for all its permutations

18:49:21 mircea_popescu: might actually give them a hash boost.

18:49:59 punkman: poutine, what's the cost? seems like you only have to come up with something that identifies rewritable transactions and broadcasts them with his own address

18:51:04 poutine: punkman, the cost is that you'd have to solo mine to forge the tx right now, or participate in a mining pool that would automate the forgery

18:51:54 poutine: Writing the forgery code is easy, being able to mine the block to test it out is not
