00:00:53 kakobrekla: shopped

00:00:58 asciilifeform: lol, never!

00:01:20 asciilifeform: seekr1t propulsion mechanism revealed.

00:02:56 thestringpuller: !s turd

00:02:57 assbot: 374 results for 'turd' : http://search.bitcoin-assets.com/?q=turd

00:05:52 danielpbarron: !up HFSPLUS

00:05:57 asciilifeform: !down HFSPLUS

00:06:00 asciilifeform: known idiot

00:06:08 asciilifeform: 1000 names

00:06:23 danielpbarron: oh.. i greped for his nick and ip..

00:06:25 asciilifeform: obnoxiously retarded

00:06:57 asciilifeform: suspected bot (what living thing is that persistent? possibly only mircea_popescu's jar mouse...)

00:07:06 kakobrekla: danielpbarron protip: do no work, do no sin.

00:07:27 mircea_popescu: wait wut ?

00:07:50 asciilifeform: 'meow mix' as jar mouse.

00:08:55 mircea_popescu: lol

00:09:28 mircea_popescu: in other news, i had excellent seafood in caviar sauce.

00:10:23 *: asciilifeform misses cheap soviet caviar (not 'cheapened', but actually cheap, on account of geography)

00:10:35 *: mircea_popescu recalls that.

00:10:44 mircea_popescu: used to get the nice sprots too.

00:10:49 asciilifeform: i still get these!

00:10:51 asciilifeform: importers.

00:10:55 mircea_popescu: not nearly as nice.

00:10:56 asciilifeform: same can, even.

00:11:06 mircea_popescu: yeah but i think they;'re faking the smoke

00:11:12 asciilifeform: they did for a while

00:11:21 asciilifeform: until proper smoke was quietly re-legalized

00:11:32 asciilifeform: post-2010 or so, real, afaik

00:11:43 mircea_popescu: unrelated : http://31.media.tumblr.com/06291c34f0d38f06ffe32399c076be35/tumblr_ndt569fpn01ra163eo1_500.jpg

00:11:46 *: asciilifeform checks sprat supply

00:11:47 kakobrekla: whats the story there ascii

00:12:40 asciilifeform: kakobrekla: for a spell, eu banned smoked foods (!) - because 'carcinogen' - and then latvia, eu circa '04, got the sharp end of the ban

00:13:08 asciilifeform: sprats (iconic canned fish, familiar to virtually all sovblok folks) started shipping with 'synthetic smoke'

00:13:17 asciilifeform: a terrible erzats

00:13:54 mircea_popescu: really it's the can. black and gold.

00:14:08 asciilifeform: i presently get my (and got the woman addicted likewise, when first met even) sprat fix from a german importer in wash. dc

00:14:38 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform nothing really goes with vodka and olives

00:14:47 asciilifeform: lol

00:14:59 asciilifeform: there is no substitute for standard sprats. none.

00:15:14 *: asciilifeform counts three cans

00:15:17 jurov: are theses sprats cryptographically signed?

00:15:20 mircea_popescu: http://www.thecopydude.com/wp-content/uploads/2006/09/images/spratcan.jpg

00:15:33 asciilifeform: aha those are the plus-sizers!

00:15:35 mircea_popescu: jurov no, they're olphactorily signed

00:15:55 jurov: yes i like em too

00:16:06 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform similarly there's no substitute for salt pickles

00:16:07 mircea_popescu: wasabi

00:16:13 mircea_popescu: long list of specific food items

00:16:16 asciilifeform: hehe

00:16:36 mircea_popescu: can't make deviled eggs without salt pickles fro crying out loud

00:16:40 mircea_popescu: cookign is a lot like coding

00:17:00 asciilifeform: but more important.

00:17:12 chetty: ahhh grouper

00:17:15 mircea_popescu: ;;later tell cazalla http://38.media.tumblr.com/7ad4654847475e56874e1c73cb6d7c24/tumblr_n4ncm0tcwb1rm35woo2_r2_400.gif

00:18:19 mircea_popescu: they work wonders

00:18:39 asciilifeform: arse with eye? can see colour?

00:19:01 cazalla: his ass looks like it has labia

00:19:07 mircea_popescu: it can ~feel~ the color!

00:19:21 mircea_popescu: cazalla mostly because the feminine folds are adaptative rather than aesthetic

00:19:22 asciilifeform: champions of synaesthesia.

00:20:17 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: http://owl.ru/morits/stih/off-records142.htm << translator's challenge!

00:20:17 assbot: - -

00:20:46 mircea_popescu: but i am not a translator!1

00:20:51 asciilifeform: lellzies

00:21:22 cazalla: aren't they both?

00:23:57 mircea_popescu: Bomber with a bomb, off to kill you! If you're not an idiot, you'll shoot it down. Either you do, or it kills you! If it kills you, this brave plane, then he's a brave patriot and you're just as idiotically dead. On the contrary... well... it's a sore plane. Very sore plane. Otherwise, he died a patriot, flying a bomb your way, wanting to kill you. But lucky for you - you weren't an idiot.

00:24:00 chetty: два идиота

00:24:15 mircea_popescu: dva idiota should be a tattoo.

00:24:32 chetty: :D

00:25:43 cazalla: seems most men prefer little to no labia but given one of the first i saw was a beat to shit jpg from a bbs, i would argue labia certainly have an aesthetic quality about them

00:25:45 mircea_popescu: and ftr, stih is directly "verse" in romanian.

00:26:07 mircea_popescu: cazalla a preference of no labia is indicative of the pedo.

00:26:19 kakobrekla: <mircea_popescu> and ftr, stih is directly "verse" in romanian. < same

00:26:43 mircea_popescu: let's celebrate! http://33.media.tumblr.com/f4470f90ceb68d4aa2cd5a3727563baa/tumblr_n4ncm0tcwb1rm35woo9_r1_400.gif

00:29:29 cazalla: makes me wonder why mr hands didn't opt for a toy like that, must've been the horse itself

00:33:27 cazalla: someone is determined to advertise nike air shoes on qntra

00:53:25 mod6: can someone take the time to create a document outlining how to submit a patch to said forthcoming mailing list?

00:53:47 asciilifeform: mod6: only jurov knows

00:56:09 mod6: and more-over, all the steps/requirements involved in creating such a patch.

00:56:24 mod6: we should have some sort of sop involved.

00:56:44 asciilifeform: the 'chicken' turd i posted, plus the last day or so of log

00:56:56 mod6: lot of ideas have flown by in here over the last 2+ days, solid ideas that should be documented.

00:57:05 asciilifeform: contains more or less the entire sop, other than the secret of how to operate jurov's turdatron.

00:57:45 mod6: what is ``jurov's turdatron''?

00:57:58 asciilifeform: !s jurov mailman

00:58:07 ben_vulpes: mailing list that accepts messages from assbot's l2

00:58:18 asciilifeform: not a generic mailman!

00:59:02 kakobrekla: if you need some place for notes, temporarily or not, you can use ba wiki.

00:59:31 asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: you drafted yourself as maintainer - perhaps do this

01:02:25 ben_vulpes: certainly.

03:12:09 mircea_popescu: decimation: ben_vulpes: did you manage to compile your package on osx? I find that there are weird linux dependencies in the irc code << i thought the irc code was out.

03:13:58 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: it's in.

03:14:13 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: didja even bother to read that thing.

03:14:23 mircea_popescu: mmm

03:14:33 mircea_popescu: i prolly read summaries.

03:14:57 mircea_popescu: !up teek

03:15:38 decimation: I found that if you s/MSG_NOSIGNAL/SO_NOSIGPIPE/ the thing compiles (using macports g++-mp-4.7)

03:15:46 *: asciilifeform recommends snippety-snip for the osx crap

03:15:54 decimation: this is probably relevant to BSD

03:15:59 mircea_popescu: but apparently half the peons here are on os/x

03:16:40 decimation: I think a custom gentoo vm is the way to go

03:16:55 asciilifeform: if vm, why not openbsd.

03:16:57 mircea_popescu: a vm generally is possibly the way out.

03:17:09 asciilifeform: i suggested a qemu image earlier, if anyone recalls.

03:17:18 asciilifeform: hammered as flat as possible

03:17:46 asciilifeform: though it was for build, and not necessarily run

03:17:57 mircea_popescu: allow me to help productivity in my own way : http://38.media.tumblr.com/d115bc959beaec5322325a203d1e7218/tumblr_ndgishmEWi1tcc457o9_500.jpg

03:18:11 asciilifeform: is that a shoehorn?

03:19:04 mircea_popescu: thinks people ask about porn. "is that a shoehorn ?"

03:19:21 asciilifeform: shoehorns are a neglected but important piece of infrastructure!

03:19:38 asciilifeform: how many usaschwitz inmates even own a shoehorn.

03:21:00 mircea_popescu: here's a funny story : i have a maid here. as maids do, she has decided on a sorting of items in my place and is enforcing it unless one tells her better. which is the great unknown and unsung power of the default.

03:21:07 mircea_popescu: on the other hand, im not sure she knows what a shoehorn is,

03:21:22 mircea_popescu: because she's decided it goes IN my very nice marble mortar and pestle.

03:21:24 mircea_popescu: with the pestle.

03:22:26 mircea_popescu: the first time this happened chicks discovert it, i was like ew! and laughed at her. but then i forgot to say anything, so sure enough, next time...

03:23:29 kakobrekla: perhaps one of those silly 'life hacks'

03:23:44 mircea_popescu: oh ?

03:23:45 kakobrekla: "you have been drinking milk wrong all your life"

03:23:49 kakobrekla: as seen on youtube.

03:23:58 mircea_popescu: speaking of which, http://33.media.tumblr.com/f0d7ec5bda367de4c55560d4a3c6a51d/tumblr_nbyricWpNd1ty964ho1_400.gif

03:23:59 asciilifeform: 'really it's to be sipped with yer arsehole'

03:24:04 asciilifeform: that kind of 'hack'

03:24:08 kakobrekla: yea

03:24:15 kakobrekla: they do these.

03:24:43 undata: mircea_popescu: she thinks it's to scoop out what's been ground?

03:24:53 mircea_popescu: undata possibly.

03:25:13 kakobrekla: who is suppose to be enjoying this, him or her?

03:25:24 mircea_popescu: kakobrekla it's just the definition of "shoehorned"

03:25:25 kakobrekla: or maybe even him or him

03:25:36 undata: ouch

03:25:48 undata: well I guess I wouldn't know, but seems like ouch

03:25:55 mircea_popescu: undata the heel is metallic, but doesn't seem threaded...

03:26:34 undata: I mean, I've never stuck anything up there; could be great

03:26:41 undata: I'll probably pass...

03:26:55 mircea_popescu: undata too late for that, clearly you're into sounding

03:27:00 undata: ah fuck

03:27:01 mircea_popescu: working hard to prepare for mr thiel

03:27:17 mircea_popescu: why DID you think they're called "pencildicks" ?

03:28:13 decimation: arg. it compiles, but doesnt' link on osx without gymnastics

03:28:19 decimation: yeah maybe openbsd is a good idea

03:28:44 asciilifeform: once the toy os crap is junked, can 'have nice things'

03:30:56 decimation: their packaging turd

03:31:33 decimation: I'm sure compiling that shit from scratch would be a nightmare

03:36:19 asciilifeform: (yes, his official name!)

03:36:30 decimation: there's also predator and its 2 governors

03:36:34 asciilifeform: i vote for him without fail.

03:37:19 decimation: I wish that there were an option on the us ballot for "I vote against this entire system and an immediate constitutional convention"

03:37:34 decimation: kinda like the voter's version of nullification

03:47:47 decimation: I guess voting for vermin supreme would be the 'fuck you and the horse you rode in on' vote

03:48:08 mircea_popescu: they have these "suprema de x" breakfast dishes here

03:48:44 mircea_popescu: decimation "I vote against this entire system and an immediate constitutional convention" <<< that's not on the ballot. you can actually convene one. like, right now.

03:48:54 mircea_popescu: just get enough people to sign for it.

03:49:28 decimation: yeah that's kinda true, except you would have the entire bureaucrat/media/faceless mass against you

03:49:48 mircea_popescu: as opposed to when ?

03:49:50 decimation: might as well wear a boot on your head and shout at strangers

03:50:09 decimation: yeah, good point

03:50:56 decimation: mr. yarvin had a post where he hypothesized that if there were a credible alternative to usg it would immediately crumble

03:52:23 decimation: I have it almost compiling except boost is giving me shitty linking errors

03:52:49 decimation: I think asciilifeform is right, better to run on a real os

03:53:36 ben_vulpes: debian and gentoo seem to be the choices.

03:54:09 decimation: what, no bsd? :)

03:54:16 undata: ben_vulpes: I tried earlier on gentoo; it wanted a different openssl than ssh did, so I gave up.

03:54:35 decimation: yeah that's the rhel bitcoin guy's point

03:54:56 decimation: he has a complete version of openssl that will work with bitcoin, you can download the src.rpm and build for arbitrary unix

04:09:20 mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes it's a lousy fix for a serious problem that "doesn't exist" because logics

04:09:32 ben_vulpes: what is the actual serious problem?

04:09:46 decimation: I like how on one had the sky is falling so we need bigger blocks, but on the other hand the sky is falling so we need a smaller blockchain

04:09:48 mircea_popescu: but hey, i know, since we solved the blocksize through autopruning, we can make blocks one trilobyte long!

04:09:57 decimation: heh

04:10:06 mircea_popescu: decimation notice the typically usg sort of arguing involved.

04:10:36 mircea_popescu: i mean it's ridoinculous, a five year old can smell the shit, yet supposedly pointing it out is somehow controversial and wildly speculative

04:11:34 mircea_popescu: anyway, asciilifeform's orignal "microscope, monkeys" is exceptionally apt, when it comes to "bitcoin scientists"

04:12:02 mircea_popescu: and to think the guy went to princeton!

04:12:09 decimation: who, gavin?

04:12:38 decimation: well, satoshi's original judgement was that these guys were pigfuckers, see ya later

04:13:23 mircea_popescu: decimation you can imagine his cold cold sweat once he finally figured out who exactly the "enthusiastic early adopters" were.

04:13:25 ben_vulpes: prhttps?

04:13:37 mircea_popescu: quite a soviet moment.

04:14:12 mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes look in logs, your last few lines ?

04:15:13 ben_vulpes: i've yet to set it up myself

04:15:19 ben_vulpes: but it's on the roadmap for 2015

04:15:43 mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes two typos, and since it was consistent it made me curious :D

04:15:54 decimation: yeah I always liked konqueror becuase it would just open a file as an arg

04:16:03 ben_vulpes: i finally got helm dialed in (and oh my god, i didn't know that emacs could get that much better

04:16:22 decimation: what's helm do?

04:17:23 assbot: Add a switch to allow running in a pruned state by rdponticelli Pull Request #4481 bitcoin/bitcoin GitHub

04:17:29 decimation: yeah I use ido now but it's only marginally better than stock

04:17:41 decimation: yeah that sounds great

04:17:48 decimation: ido kinda sucks honestly, it's matching is dumb

04:18:01 decimation: it's/its

04:26:59 mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes it's kind of the intention, but it does not really work

04:27:49 mircea_popescu: (ie, it's unevenly enforced)

04:28:35 ben_vulpes: as in p2p messages exceed 32mb in practice?

04:28:42 ben_vulpes: decimation: why do you ask?

04:29:31 mircea_popescu: as in sometimes they do, more or less impredictably so.

04:31:24 decimation: ben_vulpes: just cause. I find it quite useful, the best personal organizer I have tried

04:32:01 ben_vulpes: decimation: i used it for time tracking before we started using harvest

04:38:02 decimation: well to be fair she was just a reviewer

04:38:23 decimation: she might have said 'this sucks'

04:38:31 mircea_popescu: one that somehow forgot to come by and say "hey check out the derpage"

04:38:43 decimation: good point

04:38:52 mircea_popescu: and if she did say this sucks, i have no way to know. which isn't consistent with the "smart" rating, sadly.

04:40:23 mircea_popescu: but as a general moral of the thing, one's best be careful to post on their blog trashing idiots like us* or else they risk appearing in victorious tweets like "oh noes, 5 economists reviewed this!!!", which is exactly how the empire works.

04:43:49 ben_vulpes: how would i get the size of an arbitrary block?

04:50:32 decimation: I don't even get how gavin's post is an economic argument

04:50:36 ben_vulpes: mircea_popescu: do messages of less than 32 MB transmit regularly? are you aware of a discernable phase boundary for transmission reliability?

04:50:46 decimation: other than "the network would be more valuable if it did more transactions per second"

04:50:51 mircea_popescu: no, which is why i've been sayin'...

04:51:06 mircea_popescu: decimation it IS an economic argument. it goes like so

04:52:36 mircea_popescu: and therefore MUST HAVE!!!1

04:52:43 decimation: that's exactly how it reads

05:00:52 mircea_popescu: sooo... mah router just got attacked ;/

05:01:52 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform myeah, "anything that isn't bolted down" or how did it go.

05:05:04 asciilifeform: anything that isn't bolted down, will be shaken loose. very soon.

05:05:22 asciilifeform: and little gnomes, covered in shit, will silently scurry away with it.

05:06:20 mircea_popescu: it's not really shit

05:06:26 mircea_popescu: you just don't understand how the world works.

05:06:29 asciilifeform: i can't help but wonder what our little friends the gnomes chat about amongst themselves.

05:06:38 asciilifeform: when we aren't looking and the lights are out.

05:06:39 mircea_popescu: the world.

05:06:43 mircea_popescu: and how you don't understand it.

05:06:46 asciilifeform: what do they talk about under their buggery blankets

05:06:55 asciilifeform: nah that's on the stage

05:06:59 decimation: it's interesting that they would go so far as to pay someone to attack sites

05:07:15 mircea_popescu: decimation i very much doubt there's any relation there.

05:07:41 mircea_popescu: one can well piss off different groups of idiots you know.

05:07:50 decimation: true

05:08:14 mircea_popescu: now, sure all the idiots in the end are fed out of the same through

05:08:27 mircea_popescu: so one could argue they're the same group in the end. but anyway.

05:08:36 asciilifeform: there are two troughs.

05:08:45 mircea_popescu: maybe they should paint foodstamps in different colors

05:08:51 asciilifeform: out of one, the useful idiots are fed. the ones who actually swallow it all.

05:09:04 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform in this case, i actually meant money.

05:09:07 asciilifeform: out of the other - the 'full spectrum dominance' folks who know exactly what they're doing.

05:09:21 asciilifeform: the ones who've not only smelled but stoked the ovens.

05:09:37 decimation: I don't think they are involved here

05:09:44 decimation: why would they show up in irc?

05:09:48 mircea_popescu: i very much doubt they exist at all.

05:10:12 asciilifeform: decimation: why would such dignified folks show up in person. represented by idiots of the first kind, in nearly all cases.

05:10:19 mircea_popescu: but this is evolving towards a rehash of the meta-nsa discussion we've really done to death

05:10:20 asciilifeform: there's an inexhaustible supply of them, after all

05:10:23 asciilifeform: aha

05:11:23 mircea_popescu: the islant of smart bureaucrats is like ten miles off the island of the amazons

05:11:32 mircea_popescu: those mythical women that are perpetually hawt and perpetually alone.

05:11:38 *: asciilifeform does not believe in free-range sheeple. or rather, is quite certain that they've been extinct since some time prior to, say, babylon. and the only kind of sheeple to be found today are in meat processing plants - which can only exist if there are eaters.

05:11:46 decimation: with monkeys bombarding them with poo

05:11:49 mircea_popescu: eaters, yes.

05:12:14 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform considere the case of the farming ants. are the ants intelligent ? no. are the teats of the bugs milked in time ? yes.

05:12:20 mircea_popescu: nature is economical.

05:12:25 mircea_popescu: especially with intelligence.

05:13:19 asciilifeform: even if a figure like jamie dimon is more analogous to an insect queen than to a 'secret hitler' -

05:13:25 asciilifeform: still, we have an eater.

05:13:27 asciilifeform: or rather, a set.

05:13:39 decimation: asciilifeform: the concluding question being: in front of which chumpatron's maw do you wish to graze?

05:14:32 asciilifeform: hm?

05:15:48 decimation: how do you escape the factory and roam free?

05:16:11 asciilifeform: ask limonov

05:16:25 decimation: or maybe that templeos guy

05:16:48 asciilifeform: (who, it appears, believes that organized stampede is the answer. well, doesn't really believe it answers the puzzle, but thinks it wrong not to at least try)

05:17:19 mircea_popescu: organised stampede ? lol.

05:17:29 mircea_popescu: if you can do that, why stop there ? make round cubes,

05:17:31 asciilifeform: templeos << terry davis is a 'stainless steel rat.' just, a more skilled one than i am

05:17:37 mircea_popescu: heck, made perpetuum mobile and everything else.

05:17:40 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: fried ice!

05:17:43 asciilifeform: (arabic?)

05:17:44 mircea_popescu: definitely.

05:18:01 mircea_popescu: low calorie milk, greaseless oil, all the good stuff.

05:18:07 asciilifeform: dried water.

05:18:08 mircea_popescu: organised stampede indeed.

05:18:24 decimation: asciilifeform: mancur olson lived somewhere nearby. he pretty much came to the same conclusion

05:18:40 mircea_popescu: but incidentally : i have for the past hour been writing on this piece

05:18:50 mircea_popescu: which i think will be pretty shattery. roughly same topic.

05:23:27 mircea_popescu: <decimation> I feel the compulsion to collect them in case 1984 << you are doing a good thing.

05:23:43 decimation: as in, no one recognizes the 'property rights' of the pissants?

05:23:53 asciilifeform: ru folks (the thinking kind) collect warez as a matter of principle.

05:24:13 asciilifeform: and of pragmatic. never know when might need to make a trade.

05:24:32 undata: why did p2p seem to stall at bittorrent?

05:24:40 asciilifeform: ?

05:24:51 undata: I guess tribler's working on a tor fork

05:24:54 decimation: what's wrong with bittorent?

05:25:09 undata: decimation: what would be wrong with some anonymity in the mix?

05:25:32 decimation: well, it wasn't an design goal

05:25:35 asciilifeform: 'property rights' of the pissants << gotta understand the inevitable reaction when people move a property boundary. and especially when they move it, as if they owned the universe, straight through your brain, wishing to cut off half

05:25:51 undata: decimation: that's what's wrong with bittorrent.

05:26:27 mircea_popescu: undata listen, you're misdesigning here. the "privacy" angle is not to be solved at the tool level.

05:26:37 decimation: asciilifeform: yeah sounds legit

05:26:38 mircea_popescu: what the fuck would awk be if someone tried to rewrite it to include privacy ?

05:26:42 mircea_popescu: you want privacy, get a vm.

05:26:58 mircea_popescu: you want private use of a hammer, wear gloves.

05:27:05 mircea_popescu: don't try to buy a special, "private" hammer.

05:27:20 decimation: I'm not really sure how one could 'design privacy' while simultaneously expecting to correspond with whoever comes down the street

05:27:23 *: undata googles bitcoin seedbox

05:27:41 undata: mircea_popescu: still I can run tor *here*

05:27:51 mircea_popescu: sure, you can do whatever you please.

05:28:42 decimation: asciilifeform: but the situation is even worse in the us, why do the 'thinking folk' seem to accept it as some kind of bedrock of civilization?

05:28:59 asciilifeform: decimation: anyone ask them? (do you remember being asked? i don't)

05:29:11 decimation: heh good point

05:29:48 undata: mircea_popescu: an anonymous p2p network would permanently solve the copyright thing; those guys can always go after the seedbox hosts

05:29:53 decimation: it's a weird quirk of their particular abbatoir

05:30:07 undata: I've used i2p for various things

05:33:56 undata: the laws aren't against the app

05:34:02 undata: they're against pulling down copyrighted material

05:34:03 mircea_popescu: cause the same fucking process can work again

05:34:05 mircea_popescu: uh.

05:34:15 asciilifeform: the copyrasty problem will find its 'final solution' in a rather elegant, if traumatic, way. the various american 'industries' that form the brain & body of copyrasty (film, music, dead tree publishing) will be done in by the banal fact of their customers having nothing to spend.

05:34:46 asciilifeform: this is also known as 'every tumour stops growing eventually.'

05:35:07 undata: I fail to see the problem with helping that death along.

05:35:13 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform that's not my perspective, though we don't disagree. in my view of the matter, they will be done in by the fact that the intersection of thinking people and copyright observers will become the null set.

05:35:27 asciilifeform: it's already a mostly null set

05:35:29 mircea_popescu: undata well there's no problem with helping it along, but your proposed measures have the opposite effect ?

05:35:42 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform that being the only reason it still survives as a going concern.

05:35:47 undata: mircea_popescu: by causing a "no p2p app x" law?

05:35:50 undata: it'd never happen

05:36:01 mircea_popescu: undata no. by acting as if the usg actually has some sort of power or importance.

05:36:03 undata: any more than they can ban tor

05:36:04 mircea_popescu: see the scabbard quote above.

05:36:28 undata: the us govt *made* tor

05:36:31 mircea_popescu: here's a good one : it'll never happen that they'll send people to prison for fixing software.

05:37:13 decimation: mircea_popescu: I'm sure there are bureaucrats that would love to do exactly that

05:37:22 undata: this assumes they can do anything

05:37:23 mircea_popescu: decimation no, it's happened already.

05:37:30 mircea_popescu: see the famous case of that neonazi kid whatever his name is

05:37:31 undata: they haven't gotten anything done in 20 years

05:37:52 mircea_popescu: undata they've not gotten anything intelligent done in 20 years. plenty of idiocy got done tho.

05:38:28 undata: I think it would be fantastic to have an appified (derped) way of downloading game of thrones

05:38:39 mircea_popescu: well so make it, i guess.

05:38:53 undata: if only to kill the revenue of game of thrones-ing

05:38:55 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform incidentally : you know what "solid earner" died the exact death you describe ? buffett's "discount stamps"

05:39:05 mircea_popescu: exactly that way : its customers ended up on food stamps :D

05:39:15 asciilifeform: thar we go.

05:40:29 asciilifeform: in the near term - usa is stage for 'demolition derby' of everything and anything - good, bad - which depends on the typical man on the street having spending money.

05:40:36 mircea_popescu: undata anyway, you're equivocating two things here. on one hand, you'll find exactly zero support here for the proposition that someone should make money off the writings of dead authors ; on the other hand, you'll find exactly zero support here for the theory that you should be able to play any computer game you wish without having to pay the company that made it anything.

05:40:48 mircea_popescu: this equivocation would be the other, smaller reason copyrights still survive.

05:41:12 undata: mircea_popescu: nothing stops anyone from mirroring your blog for free

05:41:14 undata: yet you're getting paid

05:41:20 mircea_popescu: actually, yes, it does.

05:41:24 mircea_popescu: cause he can't get the articles.

05:41:38 undata: he could pay once, then host it himself

05:41:43 mircea_popescu: and get sued.

05:42:06 undata: my point is there's always a way, and that fact doesn't necessarily stop good content

05:42:17 mircea_popescu: but your point doesn't work, seeing how... there isn't a way.

05:42:25 undata: there are shit-fountains in the us I'd love to help wreck.

05:42:32 asciilifeform: how many mircea_popescu ends up suing every week ?

05:42:32 mircea_popescu: you just need better methods.

05:42:48 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform that didn't parse.

05:42:53 asciilifeform: ah

05:43:07 asciilifeform: how often somebody opens unauthorized mirror

05:43:08 undata: well, something which does more damage to the fountain the more people want the shit seems fun

05:43:11 undata: maybe it's not the above, but something

05:43:17 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform it's never happened, cuz why would somebody.

05:43:32 asciilifeform: why would some nitwit ddos the #b-a log.

05:47:43 mircea_popescu: decimation what if i say "no" ?

05:48:48 asciilifeform: downed pilots with dignity - have poor life expectancy.

05:48:49 decimation: I would use the bridge, for simple pragmatic reasons

05:48:59 kakobrekla: hehe

05:49:04 mircea_popescu: but how does it relate ?

05:49:07 mircea_popescu: !up Mikayla

05:49:16 decimation: copyright enforcement is the unwanted bridge

05:49:29 mircea_popescu: and suppose i have a toilet in my house that instead of the usual seat has a penis shaped stick to sit on ?

05:49:52 decimation: that would make it difficult to take a shit

05:49:55 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu stole all my inventions straight from me head!!

05:49:56 mircea_popescu: i suppose that's the ultimate girl toilet, what is all this "lift the seat, lower the seat" bs.

05:56:03 mircea_popescu: you'd make them a cardano ?

05:56:09 asciilifeform: would try.

05:56:23 asciilifeform: can't be too much harder than - here.

05:57:00 mircea_popescu: decimation seriously, it's unsanitary, this. take the world back, man!

05:57:15 mircea_popescu: allllll of it.

05:57:40 decimation: I suspected that she resided in the neighboring trailer park

05:58:00 mircea_popescu: im sure there must be some nice ones too, somewhere.

05:58:09 undata: not in maryland

05:58:13 mircea_popescu: no wai.

05:58:43 decimation: I'm sure there are high-class hookers somewhere in wash dc, but I suspect they also charge $$$

05:58:59 mircea_popescu: so what, you'd rather pay mortgage ?

05:59:10 mircea_popescu: incidentally, anyone know the etymology of that term ?

05:59:12 decimation: yeah, you see, that's 'moral'

05:59:18 decimation: 'on the pain of death'

05:59:19 mircea_popescu: cause it quite literally says, "tribute to death"

05:59:28 asciilifeform: in usa, whore market, as i understand, has very tight coupling between product grade and price.

05:59:59 decimation: when one signs up for a 30 year mortgage it's pretty easy to imagine death coming first

06:00:06 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform actually, usa is one of the few places where the girls do pro bono work.

06:00:49 mircea_popescu: bezzle influence. they will charge a derpy usg bureaucrat 2k for an hour, and then take three dudes at some party

06:00:55 mircea_popescu: where they all got drunk on her money.

06:00:56 *: asciilifeform hasn't much to add, because to him whores may as well be those wonderful creatures that leave in the 'sea chimneys' at the bottom of the ocean.

06:01:23 undata: asciilifeform: man don't put that on your dick...

06:05:12 decimation: re:mortgages << walking around london I was surprised to learn that this is less common, much of london is owned by the crown directly

06:05:28 decimation: so instead property is leased 1000 year terms

06:05:44 asciilifeform: not entirely unlike u.s. 'fee simple.'

06:06:05 decimation: right, I think it would be more honest for us 'fee simple' to convert to 'crown leases'

06:06:13 asciilifeform: go try not paying the crown lease, err, property tax, in usa

06:06:18 decimation: at least then you would be signing a contract rather than just paying thieves

06:06:21 mircea_popescu: entirely nominalistic argument anyway

06:06:26 asciilifeform: aha.

06:06:45 mircea_popescu: decimation unless you both have equal armies, neither of you is signing any contracts.

06:06:57 decimation: ghengis kahn wouldn't bother with a contract either

06:06:59 asciilifeform: call it gang rape, or 'rejuvenative cock therapy', same concept

06:08:02 mircea_popescu: in romanian, gang means, "underpass". and for a while i thought that's what it meant, rape occuring in such a place

06:08:26 decimation: lol

06:09:26 mircea_popescu: only after a while it occurred to me that wait a second, not like these people could know that ?! wtf ?!

06:09:35 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: consider, e.g., Notzucht.

06:09:38 mircea_popescu: then i discovered that no, the overpass is not material.

06:09:55 asciilifeform: very interesting etymology, the germans.

06:10:04 decimation: that's pretty much the same as german

06:10:16 mircea_popescu: "Sexualisierte Gewalt"

06:10:22 mircea_popescu: notice the -ierte. sexualised.

06:10:31 asciilifeform: who hasn't seen a sign, marked, 'notausgang' - emergency exit

06:10:31 decimation: heh

06:10:52 decimation: romanian must have borrowed it, or vice versa

06:11:20 mircea_popescu: decimation pretty sure romanian stole it.

06:11:33 asciilifeform: 'emergency breeding'

06:11:52 mircea_popescu: speaking of romanians raping words (which is what they do) : patent in romanian means a type of pliers.

06:12:13 decimation: gang (n.) from Old English gang "a going, journey, way, passage," and Old Norse gangr "a group of men, a set," both from Proto-Germanic *gangaz (cognates: Old Saxon, Old Frisian, Danish, Dutch, Old High German, German gang, Old Norse gangr, Gothic gagg "act of going"), from PIE root *ghengh- "to step" (cognates: Sanskrit jangha "shank," Avestan zanga- "ankle," Lithuanian zengiu "I stride"). Thus not considered to be related to go.

06:13:18 asciilifeform: gang aft a'gley.

06:13:24 decimation: linguistics is really interesting stuff

06:13:36 decimation: it boggles my mind that german is related to sanskrit

06:13:45 mircea_popescu: why ?!

06:13:58 decimation: I guess it's my built-in 'present bias'

06:14:04 asciilifeform: and man, to mold, doesn't boggle ?

06:14:08 decimation: but everything comes from something

20:13:38 asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: in the sense that 'pool administrators' determine what bitcoin even -is-

20:25:55 asciilifeform: i own such a mouse, came with a prehistoric 'sun pizza box.' they have very little in common with modern optical mice - simply a pair of photodiodes and matching emitters

20:26:18 mircea_popescu: yup

20:26:18 asciilifeform: the mats (originally solid aluminum?) had reflective strips, a la road paint

20:59:04 asciilifeform: as per kakobrekla's stern warning some weeks ago, a full-bore approach (complete with future gallows) for shitgnomes has the flipside of needing to ensure against ending up swinging there by mistake.

21:00:18 asciilifeform: 'shall be delivered.'

21:01:30 asciilifeform: at any rate, it seems like we're on the path to a 'patch-chain' - so no chance of authorship being permanently obscured, unless everyone somehow manages to lose his backup

21:02:21 jurov: btw if other people will sign a concrete patch, that prevents later diddling anyway

21:03:11 mircea_popescu: ^

21:03:22 asciilifeform: the signed patches should provide watertight alibis for the innocent, and unquestionable smoking guns for the guilty - but a sufficiently 'pants and suspenders' approach should send a message to enemy against even trying.

21:42:49 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform: ideally, we'd have a patch and a collection of detached sigs of the plain ascii of the patch <<< detached sigs are in fact a reimplementation of the old punch cards

21:42:54 mircea_popescu: god fucking help you if you drop a stack

21:43:05 asciilifeform: don't drop the stack.

21:43:11 asciilifeform: 'doctor, it hurts!'

21:43:25 mircea_popescu: the drop callback is in the stack api.

21:43:29 bounce: "here, have some pills"

21:43:31 mircea_popescu: you don't want me to drop it, do not put it in there.

21:44:02 asciilifeform: till we have a gpg that clearsigns without escape char mutilation - we got this.

21:44:13 mircea_popescu: how would it do that ?

21:44:35 asciilifeform: if i knew - we'd have it.

21:44:58 mircea_popescu: see ? god hates us.

21:45:03 mircea_popescu: where's your baby jesus now, decimation ?

21:45:03 asciilifeform: one possible method - toss the sig in the head of the file

21:45:31 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform how about fixed offset and padding ?

21:45:34 asciilifeform: applicable, in that scheme, to the remainder after the ------END...

21:45:45 mircea_popescu: clearsigned file, always 16kb long, after which the signed matter begins

21:46:57 mircea_popescu: you know, thinking about this, i think i actyally want pgp reimplemented. usgavin's speshul maths about how things improve make me realise that having a pure rsa based code rather than the current encode a symmetric chypher method is perhaps feasible.

21:47:10 mircea_popescu: add to that a fixed-offset clearsigned thing, all of a sudden there's good reason to implement

21:47:19 asciilifeform: http://pastebin.com/PGQhLqnL << example

21:48:22 bounce: that's the technology equivalent of "hold my beer and watch this"

21:48:43 Apocalyptic: by the way are SHA1 gpg-signed messages considered read ? I read somewhere one might rather use sha256 or higher, don't know if there's any merit to that claim

21:49:18 bounce: sha1 is on the way out (don't use for new stuff) but not dead yet (can keep using what you have)

21:49:37 thestringpuller: asciilifeform: your otc key?

21:49:46 mircea_popescu: in that example, a 256 byte fixed sigspace.

21:49:53 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: same idea

21:49:57 mircea_popescu: yup.

21:50:06 asciilifeform: fixed - bad, not everyone has same key length

21:50:13 mircea_popescu: file is defined as, 256bytes + "##### The following is signed above :"+message.

21:50:24 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform you pad .

21:50:30 mircea_popescu: hence original 16kb.

21:50:33 asciilifeform: also eol char variation derpery

21:50:49 mircea_popescu: no special chars honored. it's all armored.

21:51:03 asciilifeform: aye, but then why fixed byte strings

21:51:16 mircea_popescu: Apocalyptic not considered read, but weak digest. good idea to upgrade.

21:51:37 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform to make it as independent as possible ?

21:51:47 mircea_popescu: much simpler machines to work it if it knows a straight offset

21:52:09 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: that's not the issue. just about everyone is putting ascii through some raper that mutilates unprintables (www browsers, toy operating systems, etc)

21:52:33 asciilifeform: this wouldn't be a problem except if you have fixed fields

21:52:54 asciilifeform: which will frame-shift as the contents get procrusted by the idiot code

21:53:15 Apocalyptic: just noticed that all deeds processed by deadbot are SHA1-hashed so far

21:54:00 Apocalyptic: which is what gpg produces by default I guess

21:54:42 asciilifeform: see the 'broken glass' discussion earlier, also.

21:55:22 asciilifeform: most folks never try 'gnawing through the leather straps,' but once you do - you learn how thick they are.

21:57:03 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform obviously, since fixed length, it can go back to the end of the file.

21:57:21 mircea_popescu: proggy gets 65kb file, cuts 16k off its end recursively, spits out 1kb of text signed by 4 people

21:57:46 mircea_popescu: and again, armored. nothing but letters and digits in there. not even +/ etc.

21:58:19 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: when idiot www crud or os (anywhere in the chain) starts gnawing at your line endings, or adding line noise, you blow the fixed frame

21:58:26 mircea_popescu: how ?

21:58:55 mircea_popescu: !s sha1

21:58:56 assbot: 30 results for 'sha1' : http://search.bitcoin-assets.com/?q=sha1

21:58:57 asciilifeform: winblow cr, lf line ending

21:59:23 mircea_popescu: Apocalyptic http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=16-10-2014#877599

21:59:23 assbot: Logged on 16-10-2014 14:00:51; mircea_popescu: btw, cazalla bingoboingo and everyone else in the same situation : if the blob gpg spits out when you sign contains a SHA1 you are using the older, and perhaps not all that secure digest algo. you should move on to sha512 either with --digest-algo SHA512 or else edit gpg.conf to insert personal-digest-preferences SHA512 SHA384 SHA256

21:59:54 Apocalyptic: mircea_popescu, I just found that line to fix the issue, but thank you

22:00:02 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform but you don't use cf, lf etc.

22:00:06 asciilifeform: me - no

22:00:14 mircea_popescu: no, the re-pgp imp,ementation

22:00:34 asciilifeform: but what of all those poor sods stuck on antideluvian ms-dos abominations

22:00:42 mircea_popescu: o, now we care ?

22:00:56 asciilifeform: only in so far as their crud has made its way into www browsers, etc

22:00:57 mircea_popescu: shit son. if only i knew about this, we could have made diff design changes on bitcoin core.

22:01:05 asciilifeform: lol

22:01:14 asciilifeform: idea is mutilation-resistance

22:01:20 mircea_popescu: why ?

22:01:29 mircea_popescu: idea is, "it only works if it works"

22:01:34 asciilifeform: because if not, why even bother with ascii, use gpg binary format

22:01:46 mircea_popescu: because i can't read that.

22:01:53 mircea_popescu: why even bother with a proper init, use systemd

22:01:54 *: asciilifeform likes to examine turds with naked eyes

22:01:58 asciilifeform: lol

22:02:33 mircea_popescu: anyway, thgis is more an aesthetic consideratyion. ditching symmetric cyphers is the more substantial thing, and since a reimplementation happenes, might as well add aesthetics.

22:02:52 asciilifeform: don't misunderstand, i like the 'fixed fields' idea, but am also aware that shitgnome excretions in a hundred places in commonplace toolchains will silently screw with it.

22:03:07 mircea_popescu: so that means those toolchains will have to change or die ?

22:03:08 mircea_popescu: o noes!

22:03:11 asciilifeform: ehehe

22:03:25 mircea_popescu: i feel so bad forcing inconvenient change upon random people.

22:03:28 mircea_popescu: like bathing.

22:04:18 mircea_popescu: jurov https is evil in the eyes of the punkbot!!1

22:04:22 asciilifeform: (need lotsa padding)

22:04:36 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform the cypher itself is too short anyway

22:04:45 mircea_popescu: so no, it won't imperil them, it will just make the peril obvious

22:04:51 asciilifeform: aha

22:05:03 asciilifeform: but with pure-rsa, enciphering on a generic pc will be a suicidal act.

22:22:19 asciilifeform: (trivial example - 2^4 - 1 == 15.)

22:22:22 mircea_popescu: yeah google, always put wikipedia the fucking first line, because i'm sure that's what the "algorithm" says.

22:22:26 mircea_popescu: buncha inept frauds...

22:22:56 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform 65537 is not a mersenne prime either. what did i step into ?

22:24:20 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: fermat primes.

22:24:31 asciilifeform: iirc

22:25:41 asciilifeform: afaik 65537 is largest known fermat prime.

22:25:51 mircea_popescu: you telling me the rsa e must be a fermat prime ? why ?

22:26:00 asciilifeform: it doesn't need to be.

22:26:07 asciilifeform: but does need to be prime.

22:26:09 mircea_popescu: afaik it's only used because easy to compute, two 1's merged into a word

22:26:15 asciilifeform: yes, that is why used.

22:26:19 asciilifeform: easy with bitshifts

22:26:42 asciilifeform: hence the obligatory whinge about new silicon

22:26:55 mircea_popescu: eh fuck it, usgavin promised us 100% increases each year for the next 200 years

22:27:00 asciilifeform: ahaha.

22:27:02 mircea_popescu: or whatever was it. i intend to hold usg at his word.

22:27:18 mircea_popescu: but anyway, why's e have to be prime ?

22:27:23 asciilifeform: work it out

22:27:48 mircea_popescu: the idea is just for (q-1)(p-1) and e to be relatively prime

22:27:54 mircea_popescu: which isn't that hard to test

22:28:39 mircea_popescu: (and for that matter, it IS quite fucking possible for the current, fixed e implementation to spit out badly coded stuff every once in a blue moon, when the p q happen to be a multiple of 65537)

22:28:50 asciilifeform: the broom - fires once. yes.

22:29:00 mircea_popescu: well ?

22:29:22 mircea_popescu: "pick 32 onbit 64bit random numbers, test for cd" is a much better approach

22:29:47 asciilifeform: although - how on earth can pxq be a multiple of 65537 !?

22:29:55 asciilifeform: for prime p and q

22:30:08 asciilifeform: unless one or both are equal to it

22:30:30 mircea_popescu: i guess it can't be because -1

22:30:37 mircea_popescu: fuck. lmao. e just has to be... ODD

22:30:38 asciilifeform: aha.

22:30:41 mircea_popescu: not prime.

22:30:55 asciilifeform: as i said, let's grunt out what happens if composite.

22:30:59 mircea_popescu: stop trying to confuse me just because i have nfi of anything!

22:31:08 asciilifeform: loll

22:31:22 asciilifeform: out of such confusion, is everything born

22:31:25 asciilifeform: as mircea_popescu might say

22:32:46 jurov: rsa is only possible because we have probabilistic primality tests for bignums up to arbitrary certainty

22:32:46 mircea_popescu: anyway. p and q are primes. p-1 and p-1 being necessarily even, will probably have some factors. these factors could just as well be 65537

22:32:50 mircea_popescu: the odds are low but present.

22:33:23 mircea_popescu: p-1 and q-1*

22:33:34 asciilifeform: jurov: actually we have a deterministic primality test! with massive constant factor, but anyway.

22:38:32 mircea_popescu: if you're not willing to sign the present signs you;'d better fork.

22:38:41 jurov: why?

22:38:41 asciilifeform: aha hence hashchain.

22:38:43 ben_vulpes: forgive my derpitude but why not simply sign the patch and collect sigs?

22:38:49 punkman: jurov, I manually entered 0xfff...f at some point, although address generation library would have caught it

22:38:53 jurov: can't they jsut sign independently?

22:38:58 mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes i have no idea, it could be done that way too

22:39:01 Apocalyptic: asciilifeform, fyi the link to the slides at http://www.di.ens.fr/~pnguyen/pub_BoJoNg00.htm i dead, such a shame

22:39:22 ben_vulpes: no stack to manage in that case; i'd prefer it if there are no obvious reasons to not.

22:39:31 asciilifeform: Apocalyptic: down side of collecting links - they die. aha

22:39:40 *: asciilifeform invited anyone who can turn up a live copy, to link

22:39:43 jurov: like, turdatron would reject the email "nope you're not on longest chain"? lmao

22:39:49 mircea_popescu: ^

22:39:54 mircea_popescu: BLOCKCHAIN ALL THE

22:39:55 mircea_popescu: things

22:40:01 asciilifeform: 'those who will not xxx are doomed to reinvent xxxx...'

22:40:02 ben_vulpes: simple is beautiful

22:40:22 punkman: also interesting is the address for 0x00, you can sent money to it but you can't spend it https://blockchain.info/address/1FYMZEHnszCHKTBdFZ2DLrUuk3dGwYKQxh

22:40:22 assbot: Bitcoin Address 1FYMZEHnszCHKTBdFZ2DLrUuk3dGwYKQxh

22:41:00 mod6: this punkbot is neat

22:43:02 mircea_popescu: kakobrekla but how is a single machine going to catch up when it falls behind ? never ? << the idea is to stop these persnickety machienes from validating the blockchain at all.

22:43:10 mircea_popescu: just take some magic bytes on trust and call it good.

22:43:43 asciilifeform: anyway, as far as i understand, the whole point of having actual arses in the driver's chair (ben_vulpes? mod6?) here is to merge patches and maintain the 'True chain'

22:43:51 ben_vulpes: 32MB is not the steady-state line, it's just the largest sanctioned p2p msg

22:44:04 mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes: i believe this excises all upnp mentions. my build hops on the network and downloads blocks. <<< yay wd.

22:44:21 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform something like that.

22:44:52 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform: considering [blabla] you probably did not need to do the live-fire test. << stom motherfucking corrupting the youth!

22:44:56 asciilifeform: forkers - can build own turdatrons.

22:44:57 mircea_popescu: he did need to do the life-fire test.

22:44:58 mircea_popescu: twice.,

22:45:06 ben_vulpes: hang on a sec here

22:45:10 asciilifeform: !s dijkstra

22:45:11 assbot: 14 results for 'dijkstra' : http://search.bitcoin-assets.com/?q=dijkstra

22:45:20 mircea_popescu: djenied.

22:45:29 ben_vulpes: lol no u

22:45:47 mircea_popescu: testing is the one thing bitcoin needs more of

22:45:49 mircea_popescu: hashing it has enough.

22:45:56 ben_vulpes: jurov's turdvendor's the canonical repository

22:46:02 ben_vulpes: there's known state a

22:46:06 ben_vulpes: and a record of patches signed by individuals

22:46:20 ben_vulpes: mircea_popescu this is the thing you asked for in the first place: "sigs on lines"

22:46:26 mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes no.

22:46:32 mircea_popescu: the thing i asked for is to sign on READ lines.

22:46:40 asciilifeform: ^^^^^^

22:46:46 mircea_popescu: X submitted this, Y merged it, K L M N K and Q read and approve.

22:46:52 asciilifeform: aha ^

22:47:03 mircea_popescu: as opposed to the current X Y only so-called open source thing going on atm.

22:47:12 *: asciilifeform is happy that folks grasp exactly what he suggested on day1

22:47:17 mircea_popescu: the difference is huge, because when a bug like the numerous bugs in openssl/bash/etc pops up in the open

22:47:23 mircea_popescu: you wish to see whom you're hanging and why.

22:47:30 asciilifeform: !s shitgnomes

22:47:31 assbot: 12 results for 'shitgnomes' : http://search.bitcoin-assets.com/?q=shitgnomes

22:47:38 mircea_popescu: was it an honest mistake ? was it a nsa sponsored shitjob ? etc.

22:48:04 kakobrekla: which you cant really tell if it was a good jo

22:48:05 kakobrekla: b

22:48:09 mircea_popescu: in short : it makes the cost of nsa covert ops in foss go from O(log(t)) all the way up to P,N

22:48:22 asciilifeform: which you cant really tell if it was a good << hence the original discussion of why 'the sapper errs once'

22:48:41 asciilifeform: the enemy's entire modus operandi is to always have 'honest mistake' alibi

22:48:48 mircea_popescu: exactly.

22:48:52 kakobrekla: no point in establishing "<mircea_popescu> was it an honest mistake"

22:49:01 asciilifeform: so we have serious business here, and all the belts and suspenders - actually matter.

22:49:02 mircea_popescu: that's pretty much the only thing. "we print money, and you can pretend you just fell on her while your pants were off"

22:49:25 kakobrekla: still not sure why anyone wants to sign anything heheh

22:49:31 kakobrekla: given the up and down side.

22:49:35 asciilifeform: (and, for the record, when i suggested to ben_vulpes that he did not need to live fire, it was because it was a removal of ifdefs that were switched off, which, if done correctly, would yield a bitwise-identical binary.)

22:49:44 mircea_popescu: i would like the difference between "dropped plate on my toe" and "fell on naked woman holding her heels while naked" to be obvious to the naked eye

22:49:55 ben_vulpes: so merges should only happen when k l m n o have already signed patch

22:49:55 mircea_popescu: and i want the record of accidental "dropped on my toe" events recorder permanently.

22:49:57 asciilifeform: ^^

22:50:12 mircea_popescu: between these two, the budged for recruiting pencildicks goes from constant to hilbert's hotel.

22:50:21 mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes merges can happen at any point.

22:50:25 asciilifeform: tharwego.

22:50:37 asciilifeform: cooking with gas!

22:50:39 mircea_popescu: what users use, is what users use.

22:51:36 *: asciilifeform has an inescapably 'rectothermal' image of 'pencildick' in his mind

22:53:55 mircea_popescu: the entire "foss is better because read by millions of eyes" fetish needs to be put to rest already. opportunity does not equal actualisation.

22:54:09 mircea_popescu: my model will allow a specific list to be created. this was read in fact by 5468 people. these ones :

22:54:13 asciilifeform: millions'o'flies.

22:54:31 asciilifeform: >> codewot.

22:54:31 mircea_popescu: moreover, by putting the sexy back into reading code, it actually directly addresses the problem. currently people only read shit AFTER a bug was found.

22:55:07 *: asciilifeform confesses that he very frequently reads, with evil eyes, things in which nothing has of yet been found.

22:55:17 mircea_popescu: if you could also sign on it,

22:55:23 mircea_popescu: your signature will become in itself valuable,

22:55:39 mircea_popescu: and the people trying to hire you to review their code would crowd the shit out of the only buyer currently,

22:55:43 asciilifeform: sign ought not to be binary, however.

22:55:45 mircea_popescu: which is the usg diddle-ops arm.

22:55:58 asciilifeform: my 'i will die by this' sig is reserved exclusively for what i personally crapped out and ruminated over.

22:56:13 asciilifeform: could meet exceptions, but not yet met.

22:56:26 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform it IS a way out of gravity well.

22:56:28 ben_vulpes: so i begin to wonder if i'm at all a good person to handle merges, given my lack of experience with cpp

22:57:11 *: asciilifeform would volunteer to take the place of poor ben_vulpes but is rather busy

22:57:34 ben_vulpes: i've been staring at it and it's not unintelligble -- horrible, but not unintelligible -- but given things like obfuscated c competition i don't think i'm actually a good technical choice for the role

22:57:35 asciilifeform: anyway handling merges as such - the physicalities of it - is not hard.

22:57:38 thestringpuller: asciilifeform: who else is going to handle making sure turd consistency stays constant?

22:57:48 asciilifeform: dusithavetobeme?

22:57:50 ben_vulpes: asciilifeform: but how theoretically would i know what to merge?

22:57:52 thestringpuller: you are a masterful turd-smith

22:57:54 mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes technical choice ? these are all political choices.

22:57:55 ben_vulpes: trust the l2?

22:58:03 asciilifeform: why not, say, mircea_popescu

22:58:14 ben_vulpes: choice for the technical role perhaps would be a better phrasing

22:58:27 *: asciilifeform would bite ze bullet & do it, for a small fee.

22:59:21 ben_vulpes: is the goal (eg political) to find some poor usian schmuck to take on hearn et al and risk full audit of all things, stopping and frisking by every passing police officer?

22:59:22 *: asciilifeform has pet that needs some attention, will be back.

22:59:40 mircea_popescu: uh

22:59:54 ben_vulpes: or political in the sense of 'forum'

23:00:03 mircea_popescu: no, the political goal is to allow people who are interested in doing things the right way at the levers where things are done the right way.

23:01:27 mircea_popescu: this may require particular grips, depending on how the lever happen to be constructed. the hands will adjust.

23:01:34 thestringpuller: it seems asciilifeform is the only one qualified to be a release manager

23:01:48 thestringpuller: unless there is a lever pulling training program

23:02:04 mircea_popescu: what is the internet, but a vast training program.

23:02:11 mircea_popescu: what, you though it's about the social media ?

23:02:25 thestringpuller: noise signal and all that garb

23:03:58 ben_vulpes: q: what is the output of a "merge" in this scenario?

23:06:47 ben_vulpes: new "commit" in public repo?

23:07:04 ben_vulpes: fresh set of signed blobs in *.org/releases?

23:07:52 ben_vulpes: these crickets suggest that the chairs must make this decision.

23:07:59 *: ben_vulpes mutters darkly

23:10:00 ben_vulpes: aight well fiat corp requires oiling before shuddering into motion in the morn. i'll continue this with anyone interested at a later point.
