00:03:51 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 9744 @ 0.00051343 = 5.0029 BTC [+] {2}

00:07:58 punkman: "Do I have to be a resident of one of the countries mentioned above? No. You can live anywhere in the world, except of Iran, Afghanistan, North Korea or New York State." lol'd

00:08:17 punkman: (from https://www.cashila.com/faq )

00:08:19 assbot: Cashila ... ( http://bit.ly/1NSdowz )

00:09:12 pete_dushenski: heh. it begins.

00:09:29 kakobrekla: thats some derpy slovenian startup.

00:10:01 pete_dushenski: go smack 'em with a fish then

00:10:20 pete_dushenski: tell 'em compliance is for bitches

00:10:55 pete_dushenski: what, vw doesn't comply with regulations. why should a broke-ass start-up ?

00:11:28 kakobrekla: according to them prouds "Tim Mitja Zagar is co-founder of Cashila, first Bitcoin company in Europe registered as financial institution "

00:14:16 pete_dushenski: the only thing better than being first is being the last.

00:17:04 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 39192 @ 0.00051344 = 20.1227 BTC [+]

00:17:57 ben_vulpes: rebooting an old thread http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=14-11-2015#1323387: asciilifeform: since a patch has multiple antecedents, would an accurate description of the correct patch-selection algo for press be something along the lines of "given a patch, find its antecedents. presssed version must contain the descendants of all of those antecedents."?

00:17:57 assbot: Logged on 14-11-2015 02:10:32; asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: correct.

00:19:09 ben_vulpes: ;;later tell adlai what was the story with 'sheeple'?

00:19:10 gribble: The operation succeeded.

00:20:24 punkman: ben_vulpes: if you want to press a minimal version of a patch, you can recursively find all antecedents of a HEAD patch

00:21:01 ben_vulpes: minimal doesn't work i don't think

00:21:09 ben_vulpes: well, by stan's criteria.

00:21:16 punkman: why not

00:21:48 ben_vulpes: has to press the same tree as any other v given the same head

00:21:58 ben_vulpes: there are only 2 ways to guarantee that that i see:

00:22:15 ben_vulpes: 1) only press the head patch in question (this is how i wrote my press)

00:22:31 punkman: imagine you have 10 heads, and you choose 3. the only way to press is to find the antecedents of those 3.

00:22:32 ben_vulpes: 2) press all same-leaf patches

00:22:48 ben_vulpes: what?! how can there be more than a single head

00:23:02 *: ben_vulpes may be experiencing a weekend of retardation

00:23:07 punkman: is not git

00:23:08 ben_vulpes: or life, who can tell

00:23:16 ben_vulpes: nigga please, i only have one head.

00:23:25 ben_vulpes: and i ain't git either.

00:23:33 ben_vulpes: did pyv press multiple heads?!

00:24:11 ben_vulpes: nono, pyv only pressed a single head.

00:24:36 kakobrekla: <pete_dushenski> what, vw doesn't comply with regulations. why should a broke-ass start-up ? < not big enough

00:24:36 *: ben_vulpes cracks mod6's v to inspect for multiheadpressing

00:25:37 ben_vulpes: i'm no perlspurt but mod6's only appears to press a single head as well punkman

00:26:30 punkman: yep

00:26:43 ben_vulpes: good ol' define-by-impl

00:26:43 pete_dushenski: kakobrekla: not now, not ever, not at this rate.

00:28:19 ben_vulpes: <punkman> imagine you have 10 heads, and you choose 3. the only way to press is to find the antecedents of those 3. << i don't actually disagree with this, i simply do not think that the design of v allows for multiple heads. do cite me something to the contrary if you're aware of any.

00:29:24 *: ben_vulpes could have had a whole bottle of nieto sentenier for what this single glass cost

00:29:35 punkman: well imagine genesis.vpatch, then foo.vpatch edits bitcoin.cpp and bar.vpatch edits bitcoin.h, which is the head?

00:29:59 ben_vulpes: whatever the user supplies for pressing, non?

00:30:32 ben_vulpes: the act of pressing only allows for a single head, regardless of whatever other patches exist.

00:30:46 punkman: they are both heads

00:30:52 trinque: seems reasonable to want both in that case.

00:31:18 ben_vulpes: punkman: but for a given "press"ed source tree /there can only be a single head/, per the implementations that i'm looking at.

00:31:22 adlai: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=28-12-2015#1354636 << dunno man, wewracked the logs and there truly was no mention!

00:31:48 adlai: you'll just have to read it for yourself, i guess, because i'm not about to sign a single cons of it until i redo that myself :P

00:37:09 asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: i just read the log. it is yet unclear to me what was asked for

00:37:14 asciilifeform: what means 'multiple heads' ?

00:37:24 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 53787 @ 0.00050443 = 27.1318 BTC [-] {3}

00:37:31 ben_vulpes: ask punkman, not me.

00:37:43 asciilifeform: the only way you could logically press 'multiple heads' is if the heads are from disjoint trees

00:37:50 asciilifeform: i thought this was pretty obvious

00:38:03 asciilifeform: the example i gave earlier (see logz) was if we were to have a documentation dir

00:38:11 ben_vulpes: my question was determining what patches make it into a pressing.

00:38:13 asciilifeform: nothing in it would directly depend on anything in the source

00:38:45 asciilifeform: oh incidentally the current dependency graph walker is in some ways erroneously conservative

00:38:48 asciilifeform: (and this includes mine)

00:39:06 ben_vulpes: perhaps this is what confused me

00:39:19 ben_vulpes: asciilifeform: shall i restate the question?

00:39:31 asciilifeform: in the sense that presently patch Q is said to have patch P as an antecedent if ~any file~ in Q was modified by P

00:39:37 asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: do

00:40:13 ben_vulpes: let me double-check some baseline conclusions first

00:40:22 ben_vulpes: a patch may have multiple antecedents, correct?

00:40:30 asciilifeform: aha

00:40:46 asciilifeform: BUT only because a patch can affect multiple files, can it have multiple ~immediate~ antecedents.

00:41:38 ben_vulpes: i seek to understand better what same-tree-level means

00:42:14 asciilifeform: kakobrekla: 'Back in 1992 $200 billion were stolen from the Central Bank of the Russian Federation with the help of so-called ?fake letters of advice?. Russia was on the brink of a financial collapse. The Central Bank was urgently equipped with more than 10 000 encoders manufactured at Russian plants. It helped to prevent thefts. It should be noted that there were no foreign electronic components in the encoders, even keyp

00:42:59 ben_vulpes: if i press with a head P that has antecedents Q, R, S, must my press *only* include the descendant P of Q, R, and S? or *all* descendants of Q, R, S? or all descendants of any of Q, R and S?

00:48:42 asciilifeform: kakobrekla: that the aviso debacle took place, is not controversial. the debate among historians appears to be about whether a quarter, third, or even half of the budget was stolen, and whether it even makes a difference precisely how much

00:49:41 asciilifeform: ben_vulpes is correct

00:49:42 mircea_popescu: ah damn. right.

00:49:43 asciilifeform: it is the root

00:49:58 *: ben_vulpes off

00:49:58 asciilifeform: a 'head' incidentally is not a fixed item, like in g

00:50:01 asciilifeform: 'git'

00:50:02 asciilifeform: or svn

00:50:10 mircea_popescu: why we even discussing "a head" ? why does it make a difference ?

00:50:10 ben_vulpes: well git's head is only branch relative non?

00:50:13 *: ben_vulpes really off now.

00:50:13 asciilifeform: it is simply the place you grab onto and pull out a sequence

00:50:19 punkman: head is what gets arbitrarily toposorted to the top?

00:50:20 mircea_popescu: seems to me it should stay undefined. i just assumed you were discussing roots

00:50:26 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: you define it when pressing

00:50:33 mircea_popescu: right

00:50:56 asciilifeform: the original question appears to be about whether 'v' ought to take multiple arguments for head. and the answer is yes, but i did not write this because we had only one genesis

00:50:58 mircea_popescu: wait. do i even have to ? "start from here and apply everything from these people" isn't exactly "defined"

00:51:05 asciilifeform: with multiple genesis (e.g. documentation) it is necessary.

00:51:19 mircea_popescu: imo it only should take a parameter for root.

00:51:24 asciilifeform: mno you never 'start from here and apply everything' because there can be mutually exclusive branches

00:51:27 mircea_popescu: mebbe i misunderstand something ?

00:51:30 asciilifeform: think about it

00:51:31 mircea_popescu: ah.

00:58:28 asciilifeform: aha

00:59:21 asciilifeform: incidentally, maslennikov's book raised a question in my head, were western banks making use of modern crypto in '91 ?

00:59:43 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform not really. and also, the chechen story is mostly a fabrication for internal su consumption.

01:00:08 mircea_popescu: right in there with the jews that cooked kid-challa.

01:00:17 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: well, the fake aviso being sole source of chechen money thing certainly is fake

01:00:27 asciilifeform: but that chechens knew how to steal ?

01:00:39 mircea_popescu: for one thing. for the other... obviously they stole all the goats they could, but that didn't really register.

01:01:37 asciilifeform: anyway the complete story was that chechens set up faux transfer, and immediately used the proceeds to buy us dollars

01:01:51 asciilifeform: the exchange rate of dollar in ruble climbed exponentially

01:02:08 asciilifeform: and then - at the time crypto was introduced - stopped abruptly.

01:02:22 asciilifeform: whether stopped for this reason, or because god pressed a button, i do not know.

01:03:15 mircea_popescu: capital flight in a collapsed federation is a universal reliable phenomenon.

01:03:25 mircea_popescu: exactly same happened in the last days of austro-hungarian empire

01:04:47 asciilifeform: that was the thing that made the legend credible

01:05:00 mircea_popescu: counterparties stopped accepting rubles for eurodollars.

01:05:21 mircea_popescu: trade went to commodity-only, which drove the rapid deindustrialization of 93

01:05:55 asciilifeform: (incidentally, maslennikov reveals several levels of shammitude. for instance, according to him, NOBODY actually USED the calculators. they were issued pro-forma. the actual signing was done with a - never officially approved - pc proggy)

01:06:06 mircea_popescu: (still to this very day putin's ru does not match "we will bury you" su in various key industrial production metrics)

01:06:19 asciilifeform: in which of them ~does~ it match ?!

01:06:23 asciilifeform: i know of none

01:06:28 asciilifeform: only petro export, really

01:06:28 mircea_popescu: foreign reserves.

01:06:39 asciilifeform: aha but bought by 'selling pieces of the motherland' (stalin's words)

01:06:41 mircea_popescu: and energy exports, and avionics, and a list really.

01:07:08 mircea_popescu: ru is not nearly as aerospace capable as the su was when sputnik, but it's certainly not as bad as it had gotten by 1980

01:07:16 mircea_popescu: (comparative terms)

01:08:01 asciilifeform: sorta funny how virtually same rocket is still used.

01:08:16 asciilifeform: and no serious qualitative improvement was ever made, nor - likely - will be

01:08:54 asciilifeform: (korolev's '7')

01:14:50 assbot: What the Economic Crash of 2008 Taught Me ... ( http://bit.ly/1JbhrHC )

01:15:45 mircea_popescu: there is the lulzy part where "physics phd" genius boy props up a huge derivative trade with a weak market, an absolute noob mistake - and one his fucking desk should have caught.

01:15:54 mircea_popescu: but whatevers, the us' has long gone to the monkeys.

01:16:47 mircea_popescu: "Hitting a market?s ceiling like this was something that none of my methodologies accounted for." << because going "hey, my primary's like 20bn, the unwind that might need could easily be 2bn in a week, the whole fuel market's maybe a fifth that, hey check this out I've propped a car with a toothpick overf here"

01:17:45 pete_dushenski: also "hey, check out the sweet gov of mex account we scored. brownie points all around!"

01:18:04 mircea_popescu: that part is right.

01:18:57 pete_dushenski: i see

01:21:42 mircea_popescu: heck, the age of trade was driven by people trying to make their trading house matter more than the ministry of war where all the cavalry officers and junkers hung out.

01:23:07 pete_dushenski: when was the age of trade you speak of ?

01:23:18 mircea_popescu: 1500 to roughly 1750

01:23:57 mircea_popescu: the dictum "never get involved in a land war in asia" is mostly due to the fact that the portuguese were involved in a sea war in asia, and it worked splendidly for them.

01:25:13 pete_dushenski: british were in sea war with asia as well around the same time, ya ?

01:25:26 mircea_popescu: no. the british hadn't yet been invented at that point.

01:25:50 mircea_popescu: the dutch followed the portuguese, and after their conquest of the offshore platform and re-basing of their ships there....

01:26:36 mircea_popescu: "In other words, the Fed, by centralizing stress testing around its own approach, is incentivizing banks to follow suit, which may push them to accumulate similar exposures to one another and to manage them in similar ways, resulting in decreased diversification and increased risk. This is a question raised by particularly prescriptive rules like the Fed?s 5 percent hurdle, which are simple to monitor but may be just

01:26:37 mircea_popescu: as simple to game."

01:27:03 mircea_popescu: in other words, the us fed is managed way the fuck worse than b-a. because hey, the world is full of "physics phds" that went to fucking mit.

01:28:06 mircea_popescu: shoulda grazed sheep instead. learned more, at any rate.

01:28:56 pete_dushenski: not as many fillies at pasture

01:29:13 pete_dushenski: not the kind you'd take home to mom, at any rate.

01:29:52 mircea_popescu: And why his favored approach to stress testing (a technique called Bayesian nets) << oh lordy.

01:30:14 mircea_popescu: doesn?t involve trying to derive probabilities at all, but rather asks the user to just ?produce your best-informed guess.? << and you'd love this precisely because of who you are, and where yo ulive, and what you want to be true.

06:55:01 ben_vulpes: tutoring is decent work for a mistress, neh?

06:55:14 mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes that's actually pretty accurate. except smart ppl did not think it was cool. "smart" people had visions of a wikipedia-bayesian world.

06:55:29 mircea_popescu: amusingly enough, the facts fell in, but their interpretation of "what it'll be like"... heh heh

06:55:47 ben_vulpes: well i did think about it for a few weeks before bringing it up. 'was cool' is a simplification of the whole 'semantic web' trip.

06:56:27 ben_vulpes: mircea_popescu: old enough to pick, old enough also to have the wot to select from?

06:57:40 ben_vulpes: heh

06:58:50 ben_vulpes: but on the other thread, from what pool are 'they' to 'pick their own'? must i not provide?

06:59:20 mircea_popescu: there is no pool.

06:59:44 mircea_popescu: if they're worth a shit they'll find and if not, a well. most stuff developing in an uterus is meant to abort sooner or later anyway.

07:00:04 BingoBoingo: <ben_vulpes> but on the other thread, from what pool are 'they' to 'pick their own'? must i not provide? << The pool that knows wheeties actually isn't the breakfast of champion, because that is two scoops of whey and a scoop of dry instant coffee in an shaker.

12:11:15 BingoBoingo: "On Sunday afternoon, as rain continued to pummel much of the St. Louis region, 2015 officially became the wettest year on record. It came amid reports of widespread flooding, a plea by officials in West Alton to evacuate and the closure of Interstate 70 through the heart of St. Charles County. And with rain continuing Monday, river levels throughout the region are expected to hit near-record crests by New Year?s Eve."

12:11:38 BingoBoingo: Actual flood season usually doesn't start until April, or at least March

12:12:40 BingoBoingo: "Mississippi river levels at Alton are expected to reach nearly 39 feet by Thursday, only 3.7 feet lower than the 1993 record. In St. Louis, the water is expected to crest just shy of 45 feet, which would rank only behind the 49.6 feet recorded during the flood of ?93."

12:13:13 BingoBoingo: "Down river, the Mississippi was forecast to reach or surpass the 1993 record of 49.74 at Chester, Ill., on Friday. That level would impact Menard Correctional Center and comes within inches of the top of the levee protecting St. Genevieve, Mo."

12:13:38 BingoBoingo: All of this water and fucking California can have none of it.
