00:24:05 asciilifeform: http://a4lg.com/memo/2014-12-14/seccon-2014-online-quals-crypto400.html << student exercise

00:24:07 assbot: ... ( http://bit.ly/1GHU4hY )

00:24:13 asciilifeform: (bad rsa key)

00:24:58 *: trinque hunkers down for more clim hacking

00:25:02 trinque: most fun I've had in years

00:25:07 trinque: re: writing code

00:25:18 asciilifeform: trinque: last time i played with clim under sbcl it was dog-slow

00:25:35 trinque: haven't torqued it hard enough to know yet

00:25:44 trinque: but the clarity

00:25:46 asciilifeform: i mean, even for 'hello world'

00:25:50 trinque: ah, no it's doing fine there

00:26:04 asciilifeform: trinque must be using a recent cpu..

00:26:17 trinque: lol yeah, doing fine with 3+ ghz and 8 cores

00:29:29 *: trinque solemnly swears not to write his own linux distro with clim-based DE in a year

00:30:01 *: trinque chants "do not give in to astonishment" as he fires up the clim listener

00:40:51 mircea_popescu: actually it's quite possible the eventual b-a distribution is a sort of lisp "java machine"

00:40:55 mircea_popescu: ie, what google's trying to do.

00:41:47 mircea_popescu: in other news, women and incentives in tech. http://40.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m6uukgUutx1rayp8lo1_1280.jpg

00:41:48 assbot: ... ( http://bit.ly/1JqDolh )

00:41:48 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i wasted years on this. destructive dead end, because ibm pc is a turd

00:41:57 asciilifeform: i.e. the hardware can't be meaningfully abstracted over.

00:42:05 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform so is seeking true love.

00:42:30 trinque: can't build a VM for some syslisp which is then implemented later as hardware?

00:42:38 asciilifeform: who doesn't believe me (and why should?) can go waste years himself. like the 'movitz' folks did

00:43:00 mircea_popescu: nah, universal lisp bytecode!

00:43:19 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: straight to sbcl, where this is already a thing. plain computation works fine. it's when you get to i/o that you die

00:43:37 mircea_popescu: universal io !

00:43:47 asciilifeform: 'lisp doesn't need i/o.' --my brother

00:44:04 mircea_popescu: if a lisp lisps in a ioless forest, has it still lisped ?

00:44:31 asciilifeform: (in point of fact, it doesn't even need an ALU... church numerals!!)

00:47:07 trinque: I'm just glad I figured out I needed to relearn programming at 28 rather than 58

00:49:30 trinque: asciilifeform: how should IO look? what to read?

00:49:52 asciilifeform: trinque: i/o in the very basic sense of talking to the framebuffer, nic, interrupt controller

00:50:02 asciilifeform: disk

00:50:23 asciilifeform: cpu cores

00:50:33 asciilifeform: (well, the smp control gizmo)

00:50:36 asciilifeform: etc.

00:52:11 trinque: right, so on linux I could write some bits to /dev/fb0 ; what might I go read about regarding how that's done on... would genera be a good example?

00:52:20 asciilifeform: trinque: there are no examples.

00:52:24 trinque: ah ok

00:52:51 asciilifeform: trinque: have you read my 'bedrock' article ?

00:53:05 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 72809 @ 0.00039094 = 28.464 BTC [-] {4}

00:53:05 asciilifeform: trinque: http://www.loper-os.org/?p=55

00:53:07 assbot: Loper OS » You have made your bedrock, now lie in it. ... ( http://bit.ly/1GHYPYN )

00:54:06 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 13841 @ 0.00038678 = 5.3534 BTC [-]

00:54:12 trinque: asciilifeform: yes I have, and grok the gist, I think

00:54:31 trinque: what would network IO look like if done on a system with proper bedrock abstractions from your view?

00:54:57 trinque: !up gabriel_laddel

00:55:05 gabriel_laddel: ty

00:55:10 trinque: np, and hello

00:55:23 gabriel_laddel: so, for instance, think of the terminal you are now typing into. on a true dataflow box, it would simply be the end of a circuit (screen memory) directly linked to a circuit with the keyboard matrix decoder on the other end of it. you thus also lose the concept of ‘interrupts’ or ‘processes’. a dataflow box doesn’t need a scheduler, or an interrupt

00:55:23 gabriel_laddel: controller.

00:55:29 gabriel_laddel: -- http://www.loper-os.org/?p=1361

00:55:30 assbot: Loper OS » The Alert Reader. ... ( http://bit.ly/1GHZ9qt )

00:55:33 asciilifeform: trinque: for this one, symbolics lisp is not a bad example. the key being that ~nothing can happen~ short of the nic catching fire that would land you on any level of abstraction below lisp

00:55:54 asciilifeform: e.g., if a malformed packet appears, or connection breaks at any point in the process, or, or.

00:56:32 asciilifeform: gabriel_laddel has it. but in that article i was speaking of 'proper computer', not lispm.

00:56:35 trinque: gabriel_laddel: end of a circuit, so "circuit" is bedrock, or composed thereof?

00:57:18 asciilifeform: trinque: 'bedrock' for our purposes is that which if it malfunctions you physically throw it out.

00:57:20 *: trinque reads through p=1361

00:58:11 gabriel_laddel: asciilifeform: Right. I should have noted that this is an example of what "sane I/O" might look like.

00:58:39 trinque: what is the circuit? how do I write code which reads the current state of the terminal?

00:58:52 trinque: how do I shove bits into it?

00:58:59 asciilifeform: it is the only sane i/o. what we have now is chicken's cloaka, which pisses, shits, fucks, and lays eggs via same orifice (why not also eat with it?)

00:59:18 trinque: is there some data structure manifested in the lisp system which represents the state of the thing?

00:59:20 asciilifeform: trinque: code on dataflow processor controls switching matrix.

00:59:31 asciilifeform: how to represent it is up to the operator

00:59:46 asciilifeform: ultimately it is what your schoolteacher called an 'adjacency matrix.'

01:00:15 trinque: I could declare that the terminal circuit is now connected to (among other things) my circuit which logs terminal stuff?

01:00:22 trinque: and this declaration is...

01:00:29 asciilifeform: these presently exist, you can go to store and buy. called fpga.

01:00:30 trinque: a data structure somewhere read by the switching matrix?

01:00:38 asciilifeform: trinque: typically an ordinary sram

01:00:41 mircea_popescu: it does technicaly eat with it

01:01:31 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: think of it, traditional cpu ~is~ cloaka, where you pgp with the same barrel shifter and adder that you play tetris and read lolcatz with

01:02:05 asciilifeform: this is not the only way to build a computer.

01:02:16 asciilifeform: in extreme poverty of the 1950s - yes, it makes sense

01:02:25 asciilifeform: barely made sense in '80s

01:03:12 asciilifeform: (folks carrying around multiple pc notwithstanding)

01:03:41 asciilifeform: think of why msdos was a jewel - machine did ~one fucking thing~ at a time

01:04:15 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform yeah. it DOES eat with it.

01:04:17 asciilifeform: approach has limitations, there are asynchronous things in the world (e.g., nic, disks)

01:04:23 trinque: hm, so is there some circuit which is responsible for the adjacency of other circuits?

01:04:25 asciilifeform: so you have multiple machines.

01:04:28 asciilifeform: like in your head

01:04:33 trinque: is this a distributed thing, whereby one circuit requests access to another?

01:04:49 asciilifeform: trinque: when you plant your arse in your chair, does arse 'request access to the chair' ?)

01:04:55 mircea_popescu: iut's not clear why disk would be async

01:05:02 trinque: asciilifeform: no, but sometimes there's a cat in it!

01:05:04 mircea_popescu: for that matter, disk is moving to be ram. and ram is sync.

01:05:16 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: because you ask it for block b and some unknown time later it says 'here is block b'

01:05:22 trinque: ah!

01:05:25 mircea_popescu: no obvious need for this.

01:05:35 mircea_popescu: it can say "and this is block b perpetually anyway

01:05:51 asciilifeform: for so long as you have caches, you have locality

01:06:08 asciilifeform: which is to say, asking for b+1 will almost always be faster than b+100000

01:06:18 trinque: asciilifeform: so is it the synchronized nature of "modern" IO that is braindamaged?

01:06:23 trinque: I can see that point readily

01:06:41 trinque: I said this to ben_vulpes yesterday about HTTP request/response cycles

01:06:51 asciilifeform: trinque: the whole concept of having von neumann's bottleneck, where you can't do anything at all on the machine without waiting your turn for the little airline latrine of alu, mmu, etc. is asinine

01:06:53 mircea_popescu: refresh me. what in ulimit discusses the i/o ?

01:07:39 trinque: asciilifeform: so this circuit expresses a desire for the answer to some question, and some other circuit may or may not satisfy it

01:07:50 gabriel_laddel: loper-os-reader: I always sort of thought that about CPU designs in general. whilst software designers say “how many cycles is this going to take?”, a hardware designer knows how many cycles something is going to take on a chip: one. or else

01:07:50 gabriel_laddel: stas: dataflow never caught on because you absolutely need dedicated hardware. if you want real efficiency, you can’t even use standard RAM. so it gets dismissed as nuttery, on the rare occasions it comes up.

01:08:00 asciilifeform: trinque: when you plug a lamp into mains socket, does it 'express desire to conduct' ?

01:08:01 mircea_popescu: is it -i (pending signals) ?

01:08:12 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: what system are you on

01:08:17 trinque: asciilifeform: no, but water doesn't ever come out of the socket

01:08:23 mircea_popescu: centos

01:08:27 trinque: the routing is what I'm not clear on

01:08:42 trinque: who says this guy wants to know some facts and not others

01:09:27 asciilifeform: trinque: move your abstraction level down to where the question makes sense

01:09:42 ben_vulpes: o hai gabriel_laddel!

01:09:43 asciilifeform: !s muller gate

01:11:48 gabriel_laddel: ben_vulpes: I saw that in the logs earlier. It doesn't really matter - they don't have any other options.

01:12:02 gabriel_laddel: ben_vulpes: they'll use what's there.

01:12:51 trinque: asciilifeform: ty

01:13:02 trinque: I'll read that and improve my question

01:13:07 ben_vulpes: gabriel_laddel: 'they' << your customers?

01:13:09 asciilifeform: trinque: i'd even argue that fpga is a mis-step historically, and you'd want to start with traditional 'gal' (as pictured here, http://design.iconnect007.media/index.php/article/31256/maxed-out-programmable-logic-part-deux/31259/?skin=design )

01:13:57 gabriel_laddel: ben_vulpes: I was referring to #b-a members actually. I don't have any customers yet, as Masamune is horribly incomplete.

01:14:25 *: ben_vulpes does not have a horse in this race

01:14:26 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 24100 @ 0.00038665 = 9.3183 BTC [-] {2}

01:15:04 asciilifeform: gabriel_laddel: does your sbcl userland for linux come with a physical box where i get guarantee that the, e.g., video board, works ?

01:15:39 gabriel_laddel: asciilifeform: that is the idea - but currently - no.

01:15:47 trinque: given that I'm already using an absurd compromise (stumpwm+emacs) I'd take something which measurably improves what I'm doing there already

01:16:05 *: asciilifeform gave a good share of gabriel_laddel's material a fair, imho, reading, and still isn't entirely grasping how the proposed widget wins over classical linux box with sbcl on it

01:16:22 gabriel_laddel: asciilifeform: maxima, conkeror, CLIM as defaults

01:16:28 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 42500 @ 0.00038968 = 16.5614 BTC [+]

01:16:32 asciilifeform: why would i be concerned with defaults ?

01:16:36 gabriel_laddel: also, scaffolding for e.g., Pete's school

01:16:48 *: ben_vulpes to bar

01:16:54 gabriel_laddel: asciilifeform: because although you already know of these things, many people do not.

01:17:09 asciilifeform: gabriel_laddel aims to bring lisps to 'most people' ?!

01:17:12 *: asciilifeform head-desks

01:17:15 gabriel_laddel: heh, no

01:17:19 *: ben_vulpes resents leaving at top of computers + school conversation branch

01:17:20 gabriel_laddel: just for people in #b-a

01:18:01 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: on my system, 'ulimit' only sets max file size...

01:18:17 mircea_popescu: i have nfi what all this shit does.

01:18:17 asciilifeform: somebody buy poor fella a new modem

01:35:03 ben_vulpes: i am interested in things like 'literate programming' in the context of mathematical education, essay writing etc

01:35:21 asciilifeform: ben_vulpes read knuth's work on subj ?

01:35:31 ben_vulpes: not yet!

01:40:21 asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: absolute best example of 'literate programming' i know of is 'jonesforth' >> https://github.com/AlexandreAbreu/jonesforth/blob/master/jonesforth.S and https://github.com/AlexandreAbreu/jonesforth/blob/master/jonesforth.f

02:52:14 ben_vulpes: me neither

02:52:24 mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes nah, upon consideration that should have no effect.

02:52:25 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform try nao ?

02:52:25 ben_vulpes: ultraconfused, had to remember why i hadn't responded to the ;;later

02:57:52 decimation: Chicago: are you a fan of crypto too?

02:58:07 asciilifeform: now what i can't remember is whether mod6 already had this orchestra working

02:58:12 asciilifeform: (with glibc+static)

02:58:20 decimation: I thought he had

02:58:23 decimation: but with dns

02:58:35 asciilifeform: afaik can't do dns at all with static glibc

02:58:38 asciilifeform: so no

02:58:52 asciilifeform: but possibly he had something like what i just posted, but it isn't on the ml.

02:58:54 decimation: I've seen it give linker warnings

02:59:02 decimation: didn't check to see if it was truely static

02:59:23 asciilifeform: mine also gives linker warning for 'what if you used gethostbyname'

02:59:30 decimation: yeah exactly

02:59:30 asciilifeform: -- except that we provably never do

03:16:33 mircea_popescu: how do you propose i implement this ?

03:16:42 asciilifeform: iptables ?

03:17:26 *: mircea_popescu goes to read the manual for iptables now, to find how you do "open port only for x ip"

03:19:34 trinque: mircea_popescu: because layering another turd atop iptables is surely what you want... I find ufw a nice tool to deal with trivial firewall setups

03:25:27 mircea_popescu: eh nonsense.

03:25:45 mircea_popescu: it's been feeding 100s of peers like 1gb since yest or w/e.

03:25:50 asciilifeform: try from own box

03:26:48 mircea_popescu: it works from a multitude of boxen

03:27:07 *: asciilifeform about to test with conventional therealbitcoin

03:27:40 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: yes but did any of them '-connect'

03:27:42 trinque: asciilifeform: am I in the ballpark... having the vague notion that c-gates would be used to indicate whether the inputs necessary to perform a computation are available?

03:27:55 trinque: strikes me as "promises" to indicate the braindamaged programming environments I've sued

03:27:55 asciilifeform: trinque: c-gate only fires when all inputs are stable

03:27:56 trinque: *used

03:27:59 trinque: right

03:28:00 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform they must have if they were moving bytes neh

03:28:09 asciilifeform: and if connected to other c-gates, same applies to them

03:28:34 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: same thing when using conventional therealbitcoin

03:28:36 asciilifeform: (non-static)

03:28:55 trinque: seems to be the mechanism by which you call a bunch of asynchronous happenings one "thing", and can therefore act upon those "things" all being available

03:28:59 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: and no, i was specifically talking about -connect=x.x.x.x' commandline argument

03:29:06 mircea_popescu: hm

03:29:21 mircea_popescu: i have nfi

03:30:07 *: asciilifeform boots up 'wireshark'

03:30:18 mircea_popescu: honestly, i don't think that iptables thing actually works.

03:30:26 mircea_popescu: because everyone trying to get in is now stuck on LAST ACK

03:30:34 mircea_popescu: which is not to my eye the expected behaviour.

03:32:05 decimation: iptables, like most of the kernel, is undocumented as fuck

03:32:10 asciilifeform: ~all~ i get is ACKs

03:32:31 *: asciilifeform is watching the packets in real time

03:32:45 mircea_popescu: i srsly see established conns.

03:33:01 asciilifeform: aha

03:33:03 asciilifeform: all i get is acks

03:33:10 asciilifeform: they're established, yes..

03:33:21 asciilifeform: but mine asks 'version' and hears '...'

03:34:35 mircea_popescu: hm.

03:34:59 decimation: I kinda get the impression that about 99% of iptables implementations out there are 'cut n paste' from what someone else posted on some website

03:35:50 mircea_popescu: certainly.

03:36:09 decimation: just like 99% of 'autoconf' use is cut n' paste

03:36:29 decimation: many eyes, etc

03:36:59 trinque: beatings for everyone that decides to introduce his own grammar to describe some problem space (firewalls one of many examples)

03:37:09 trinque: I know... I'll invent a syntax!

03:37:57 trinque: firewall configuration should be a function you write that the network stack runs on every packet

03:38:10 trinque: pf is marginally better, but that's about it

03:38:29 *: asciilifeform brb, food

03:39:02 trinque: the ufw thing at least gives you a semi-sane "ufw allow from 1.2.3.4 to any port 8333"

03:39:27 decimation: yeah it's kinda a cluster

03:39:41 decimation: proprietary firewalls on cisco, etc aren't any better

03:39:51 trinque: and even ufw runs afoul of the "natural language" == easy

03:40:00 trinque: same mistake as SQL

If you stripped out all of the DNS stuff and then did a build with gcc/glibc I'm thinkin

04:09:51 asciilifeform: mod6: msg got cut off

04:10:00 asciilifeform: at 'I'm thinking tha'

04:13:07 mod6: oh crap. ok sorry.

04:13:21 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform hey, i know. what can i do over here.

04:13:26 mod6: If you stripped out all of the DNS stuff and then did a build with gcc/glibc I'm thinking that would get us where we want to be; sounds like you've done that!

04:14:29 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform anyway, ok if i move back to public access for this ?

04:44:16 decimation: cutting out the locking, threads ,etc

04:44:25 asciilifeform: tcp without threads?

04:45:02 decimation: yeah, async

04:45:09 asciilifeform: screw that

04:45:12 decimation: heh

04:45:16 mod6: heheh

04:45:17 asciilifeform: go build p2p net with 1-at-a-time

04:45:39 asciilifeform: (and what, someone wants to connect, you drop ~everything~ ?)

04:45:42 decimation: I've built several pure async servers

04:46:11 asciilifeform: decimation: what do they do? queue requests ?

04:46:18 decimation: sure

04:46:33 decimation: generally, you write a while loop with epoll or whatever

04:46:38 decimation: jump to whatever bell rings

04:46:48 asciilifeform: as if this thing didn't suck enough balls

04:47:32 decimation: well, it seems to me that there ought to be a definable spec between "talk to peers" and "maintain database of blocks"

04:48:26 asciilifeform: decimation: unless i seriously misunderstood mircea_popescu, not only is the reference client the permanent spec, but so are the turdependencies

04:48:42 asciilifeform: and anything purporting to be a human-readable spec is necessarily incomplete

04:50:08 asciilifeform: or that anyone would wish to try.

04:50:30 decimation: even the severable bits that bitcoind really needs?

04:50:46 asciilifeform: none of it is really severable from any of it

04:51:05 decimation: well, ultimately it's all running machine code

04:51:12 decimation: might need to start at that level I guess.

04:51:19 *: asciilifeform actually began there

04:51:35 asciilifeform: tried to come up with a mechanical mapping back from bin to what produced each section in the elf

04:51:48 asciilifeform: even wrote buncha ida script idiocy

04:52:05 asciilifeform: had to put it down, too many other things going on

04:52:43 asciilifeform: gcc, as one might imagine, does not go out of its way to help this be a readily practical thing

04:52:46 asciilifeform: quite the contrary.

04:53:16 asciilifeform: rms ~deliberately~ nudges it, whenever he can, in the direction of being as opaque as possible

04:53:18 decimation: no and as I recall there's hand-written asm in openssl

04:53:24 asciilifeform: decimation: optional

04:53:29 decimation: sure, to keep folks from re-writing gcc

04:53:33 decimation: so he can haz powerz

04:54:32 asciilifeform: .... and another short burst from mircea_popescu's node

04:55:36 asciilifeform: decimation: rms did not want it to break apart into readily-plagiarizable pieces.

04:55:45 asciilifeform: this is annoying but i understand 100%

04:55:50 asciilifeform: why he did it

04:55:53 ben_vulpes: erm i thought bitcoind *did* service one at a time, looping over sockets

04:55:55 *: ben_vulpes to src

04:55:58 decimation: sure, he wants to keep people from mkaing a bsd gcc

04:56:55 asciilifeform: gcc is the original lonely fort keeping the whole gpl thing alive

04:57:12 asciilifeform: the one thing the fucking parasites couldn't effectively plagiarize without leaving trace

04:57:33 asciilifeform: but this had a cost, yes.

04:59:12 asciilifeform: i will note that llvm (since i mentioned it again) is upon the most cursory examination a piece of shit, that wasn't even built to 'be good' - but simply with the one and only purpose of killing gcc.

04:59:17 asciilifeform: rms is spot-on here

04:59:28 asciilifeform: it exists, was built, to help him die.

04:59:46 decimation: I find it unlikely that the fsf will outlive him

05:00:06 asciilifeform: in the sense in which it is now alive? sure

05:00:15 asciilifeform: in the sense of keeping the 'reasonable' folks at bay? doubtful

05:00:28 decimation: maybe.

05:00:43 asciilifeform: as soon as he's out, 'reasonable' people will crawl in and 'make compromises'

05:00:45 decimation: gpl is pretty weak sauce unless you have a barrel of lawyers to help you enforce it

05:01:00 decimation: aye, agreed

05:01:14 decimation: all I want is a world where I get source when I get software

05:01:33 decimation: but I recognize that rms' stand is probably the only way

05:01:38 asciilifeform: won't ask for it to be buildable ?

05:01:44 asciilifeform: on something which in turn is buildable ?

05:01:44 asciilifeform: etc

05:01:54 decimation: aye

05:02:13 decimation: really, he's already lost his war for the reasons you harp on re: bedrock

05:02:33 asciilifeform: rms doesn't do war. not for many years, anyway. he does 'lonely fort'

05:02:43 asciilifeform: keeping out whole universes full of filth

05:02:58 asciilifeform: that will come flooding in as soon as he's out of action

05:03:07 asciilifeform: it is already seeping through the cracks.

05:03:12 asciilifeform: has been, for some years now.

05:03:36 decimation: yeah, as far as I can tell gpl only really 'sticks' to fsf software directly

05:04:04 asciilifeform: gpl is really primarily about gcc and linuxkernel

05:04:08 decimation: yeah

05:04:11 asciilifeform: everything else is window dressing

05:04:27 decimation: not much use to a license if you don't intend on enforcing it

05:05:40 ben_vulpes: (curse these jackholes who littered the source with printstatements that include function names)

05:06:02 ben_vulpes: is there a sane cpp logging thing that could be used in place of these print statements?

05:06:36 asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: there's gcc-specific stuff that folds the line and # into the print

05:09:12 *: ben_vulpes wonders at actual utility of a patch shaped like this

05:09:59 asciilifeform: i was reluctant to throw gccisms in there, but if we go and start building on mircea_popescu's soviet pdp11 we can always roll equivalent macros for that

05:10:47 asciilifeform: but if you ask me, this falls squarely under 'do this after it fucking ~works~' as described by mircea_popescu earlier.

05:11:21 *: ben_vulpes nods

05:12:09 *: asciilifeform sees another very short burst from mircea_popescu's node

05:12:17 asciilifeform: followed by silence...

05:12:47 asciilifeform: at this rate, the thing will sync some time after the eeproms in my computer lose 9/10th of their bits

05:23:55 mircea_popescu: properly made sausage actually floats. therefore not a fish

05:23:57 mircea_popescu: but a witch

05:24:12 ben_vulpes: mircea_popescu: ouch

05:24:40 mircea_popescu: are you a pain enthusiast ben_vulpes ?

05:25:35 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform to answer earlier q : i think for thius purpose (running on dulap etc) static glibc is exactly right.

05:25:58 mircea_popescu: doesn't help us on pogo, but that's a diff story.

05:26:12 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i was actually thinking of doing for ibmpc something like what i did for pogo

05:26:24 asciilifeform: e.g. a kernel that boots right into, this.

05:26:28 mircea_popescu: we'll have to bootstrap ourselves.

05:26:33 mircea_popescu: so that can be v 1.1

05:26:55 asciilifeform: y'know how some hoster folks let you drop an iso in when you get the thing

05:26:58 mircea_popescu: also, kernel is a good idea maybe for pogo. not for a proper server. you want people to add it to all their noncritical dedis.

05:27:00 asciilifeform: 'install favourite os'

05:27:13 asciilifeform: that'd be more for dedicated nodes, aha

05:27:28 asciilifeform: for mixing into daily life - normal package suffices

05:27:30 mircea_popescu: pogo = dedicated node ; this = stick everywhere

05:27:33 mircea_popescu: yeah

05:27:47 asciilifeform: but overall i like the idea of a dc box with bitcoind and LITERALLY NOTHING ELSE

05:27:48 asciilifeform: not even ssh

05:27:53 mircea_popescu: pogo.

05:28:04 mircea_popescu: that box should not be in dc

05:28:09 mircea_popescu: but on consumer internet terminals.

05:28:18 asciilifeform: until we actually get limited mempool, shoot fragging in the head, etc. pogo will be a bit slow

05:28:25 asciilifeform: (it'll have to swap.)

05:28:41 mircea_popescu: understand - it's 10x to 100x more expensive to do a 213.130.38.26 on random home cable than it is on servers

05:29:02 asciilifeform: aha

19:13:50 asciilifeform: say i wanna cycle between mircea_popescu's 3 boxen

19:13:52 mircea_popescu: 1 before 2, yes.

19:14:08 mircea_popescu: the entire idea of what we are building here is NODE HIERARCHY.

19:14:17 asciilifeform: or say i wanna permit inbounds from lusers but never getblocks() from them

19:14:21 mircea_popescu: which is to say, i wish my node to connect only to people on THIS list, and let anyone connect to it.

19:14:26 decimation: asciilifeform: what about connecting something to a running bitcoind, siphoning off blocks as they are 'validated'?

19:14:38 decimation: re-index into sane database

19:14:41 mircea_popescu: then the ability of the wankers to poison the chain becomes nil : sure, whatever nodes listen to them listen to them. the infrastructure does not.

19:14:43 asciilifeform: decimation: that's plain old -connect

19:15:19 asciilifeform: decimation: or if you meant some oddball 'embrace & extend' of the sync protocol - yeah, we'll probably get there eventually

19:15:30 decimation: yeah I guess that's kinda what I mean

19:15:33 mircea_popescu: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=28-06-2015#1180438 << this would be so fucking great if it's the case.

19:15:33 assbot: Logged on 28-06-2015 18:11:44; asciilifeform: and it is slow because philipinos have to crap out the diddled blocks by hand

19:15:38 mircea_popescu: those poor schmucks imagine.

19:15:45 decimation: implant probes into bitcoind to suck out its blocks

19:15:56 mircea_popescu: they had to murder the connection to buy themselves another 16 hours, because OMFG THEY'RE DOING WHAT ?!?!? NOW ?!?!

19:15:59 mircea_popescu: and now have to work it

19:16:01 mircea_popescu: ahhhh

19:16:50 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: if enemy action indeed rather than the net being a ruinous ball of yarn - they were probably fuzzing for various protocol boojums

19:17:19 asciilifeform: of course, plain old reroute for snorting with derelict infrastructure would have similar 'molasses' effect..

19:17:29 asciilifeform: ^ the most likely picture

19:17:41 mircea_popescu: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=28-06-2015#1180453 << i use the same thing. co2 doesn't bother me much, however, i will go into the ss before i put up with that sort of wrist vibration.

19:17:41 assbot: Logged on 28-06-2015 18:31:21; decimation: asciilifeform: I use plug-in electric lawnmower

19:17:49 mircea_popescu: i intend to remain able to type my entire lifespan.

19:18:04 decimation: well, the other reason I use electric: one less engine to maintain

19:18:08 asciilifeform: what kind of grass mircea_popescu cuts in his flat, lol

19:18:19 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform in timisoara i had a garden recall ?

19:18:23 asciilifeform: aha!

19:18:24 asciilifeform: yes.

19:18:28 mircea_popescu: well, that.

19:18:29 decimation: no gas to store, no oil to change, etc

19:18:38 mircea_popescu: and it was about 1/4 ton of grass each cutting.

19:18:55 mircea_popescu: which means about 20 in a year, which the neighbours helpfully PUT OUTSIDE BY THEIR DUMPSTERS.

19:19:07 mircea_popescu: then went to supermarket and bought feed for the poor yard.

19:19:16 asciilifeform: l0l

19:19:18 mircea_popescu: then they will wish to know why isis comes and beheads them

19:19:26 mircea_popescu: and it will be an unexpolainable hatred, i'm sure.

19:20:05 decimation: mircea_popescu: generally here the received wisdom is that you want to leave grass clippings on the lawn

19:20:08 *: asciilifeform bbl, playing with pet

19:20:19 decimation: rots, recycles nutrients

19:20:54 mircea_popescu: decimation what i did was pile it all in a corner.

19:21:09 mircea_popescu: also rots. also provides nutrients. can be split up over the yard beforer first snow.

19:21:15 decimation: yeah, that works too

19:21:24 mircea_popescu: also attracts birds.

19:21:28 decimation: you can add kitchen scraps and wood clippings, make good compost

19:21:48 mircea_popescu: ideally you start it with a good offering of herbivore droppings.

19:22:15 decimation: that's a good idea

19:22:23 mircea_popescu: and i did add the wood clippings, ie, me cutting off an apple and a pear tree into shape over a coupla years, after having been neglected for 5ish

19:22:27 decimation: I've also heard of going to the nearest swamp and grabbing the muck

19:22:49 mircea_popescu: not very useful, for your thing will not be either that wet or that basic. very acidic

19:22:56 mircea_popescu: horsesht the only way to go.

19:23:04 decimation: yeah that's a good idea

19:23:36 decimation: ^ note that this is how people made fertiziler since the dawn of time

19:23:44 mircea_popescu: just don't put anything coniferous / wallnut in there.

19:23:56 mircea_popescu: like the ornamental tree stuffs.

19:26:10 mircea_popescu: "You don't have to boot frmo the CDROM. And if you need a router you have a network and therefore can connect to another machine."

19:26:19 mircea_popescu: Date: 19 Aug 1999 15:38:56 -0700

19:26:35 mircea_popescu: imo nsa of 1999 was much better organised than the crap of today.

19:27:30 mircea_popescu: For instance: #include <stdio.h> int main(int argc, char **argv) { printf ("Hello World\n"); } compiles to 985,018 bytes. This is almost all libc overhead.

19:27:34 mircea_popescu: what is it by now ? 4mb ?

19:28:22 decimation: heh

19:30:19 decimation: it's only 8.3k on mac osx

19:30:28 mircea_popescu: that's pretty good.

19:31:59 decimation: 6.4kbyte on redhat 6

19:34:32 decimation: that's shared linking though

19:34:54 mircea_popescu: nonono, static

19:36:28 decimation: heh 743kbyte on redhat

19:36:35 mircea_popescu: mmkay.

19:37:16 mircea_popescu: incredible that this "free world" thing has waited patiently, and incredibly quietly, for 25 years for us to show up. i imagine it will be very hurt in its hopes and aspirations when i spit in its mouth.

19:37:28 mircea_popescu: because truly, it was waiting for salvation! resisting through culture!

19:37:35 mircea_popescu: they really did mean to assassinate hitler!

19:38:32 mircea_popescu: just biding their time, waiting for a good opportunity, honest! wanted to do maximum damage, and as we all know, ~MAXIMUM~ damage is always in the future.

19:39:52 mircea_popescu: what's needed is a fucking ISCS. the intellectual state of computer science.
