00:02:16 phf: trinque: probably same reason openbsd is not the blessed b-a target platform

00:07:21 BingoBoingo: !up ascii_modem

00:08:10 ascii_modem: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=29-07-2015#1217135 << no makefile??!

00:08:10 assbot: Logged on 29-07-2015 22:58:15; mod6: How one builds the source is entire up to the user. There may be preferred way so of doing this, such as 'rotor' and so forth. And we'll participate in creating cookbooks and guides on how to do this. But we no longer are going to fight through these environment problems.

00:09:17 trinque: asciilifeform: I don't think he's saying that, merely that aside from the makefile, perhaps the larger build system should be a separate concern

00:09:23 trinque: if it was that, sounds pretty reasonable to me

00:09:35 trinque: I think he's just trying to limit the scope of what constitutes a foundation release

00:09:41 trinque: but I'll let the man speak for himself

00:10:52 trinque: I can see how the thing tends towards "If you wish to make an apple pie from scratch, you must first invent the universe" otherwise

00:20:17 trinque: phf: why's that in your opinion?

00:20:43 trinque: I'm about ready to give linux the permaboot

00:21:09 trinque: though I suppose in terms of hardware support (pogo, so on) it does better.

00:23:55 trinque: http://www.theregister.co.uk/2015/07/06/one_million_new_lines_of_code_hit_linux_kernel/ << this shit makes me so damned uncomfortable

00:23:56 assbot: ONE MILLION new lines of code hit Linux Kernel • The Register ... ( http://bit.ly/1MuwCe2 )

00:24:04 BingoBoingo: linux per se doesn't seem to be the problem so much as linus, as traditionally implemented is

00:24:54 mod6: <+trinque> asciilifeform: I don't think he's saying that, merely that aside from the makefile, perhaps the larger build system should be a separate concern << exactly this. Makefile stays ofc.

00:25:07 trinque: mod6: right-o

00:34:01 shinohai: If anyone gets rotor to successfully build on the pogo, please, by all means contact me.

00:34:42 trinque: shinohai: are you trying to compile for the pogo, or *on* the pogo?

00:34:52 trinque: because the latter results in oomkill iirc

00:35:13 trinque: I tried it for the hell of it a while back

00:35:18 trinque: on a debian pogo

00:36:30 shinohai: trinque: *for* the pogo. *on* the pogo is just dumb.

00:37:04 shinohai: Boost alone takes like 10 hours to build.

00:37:23 trinque: haha just checking

00:37:53 trinque: alright so I'm seeing something

00:37:59 trinque: mod6: maybe you guys need a build/test crew.

00:38:06 trinque: so you can stop fucking worrying about it

00:38:11 trinque: that I could probably help with.

00:38:35 shinohai: Hell, I even got it to build on Ubuntu, the dumbest of Linux systems I know of.

00:39:07 trinque: my C++ is middling to poor, but I can bash it up all day

00:39:20 shinohai: Me too :/

00:39:39 shinohai: Except my C++ is poor, no question about it.

00:42:03 trinque: ag3nt_zer0: good afternoon

00:42:18 ag3nt_zer0: hey trinque same to you... how's life?

00:42:34 trinque: s'alright, hacking and drinking beer at a local pub. yourself?

00:42:44 ag3nt_zer0: sounds great

00:43:30 ag3nt_zer0: s'ok man... i started a countdown that clicks away until I plan to embark on a two year backpack around the world

00:44:09 phf: trinque: linux seems to support everything and with some effort you could strip it down somewhat. i think linux also has a policy of never breaking abi, so if you're into static compilation, like ascii said sometime ago "if stator binary breaks on your other linux something's very very wrong"

00:44:14 ag3nt_zer0: which means it hasnt been that great haha but I am looking forward to getting the fuck out of here so there is a light on the horizon

00:44:28 ag3nt_zer0: 10 months, 18 days

00:44:46 trinque: ag3nt_zer0: sounds like the ussa bureaucracy has been rough, yeah

00:45:05 trinque: I'd like to do the backpack thing at some point too

00:45:13 trinque: phf: yeah, I can see that

00:45:26 ag3nt_zer0: trinque: exactly... not to mention the twatbrains that constitute the majority of my contemporaries

00:46:48 ag3nt_zer0: this room seems to be the only place wherein any type of free discussion takes place... not stultified by PC and other too-intense sentimentalisms

00:47:00 trinque: cheers to that.

00:47:06 ag3nt_zer0: what kind of beer you sipping?

00:47:15 trinque: garbage, rainier

00:47:19 ag3nt_zer0: hehe

00:48:17 ag3nt_zer0: aht part of the states you in trinque?

00:48:22 ag3nt_zer0: what

00:48:25 trinque: I hail from portland, or

00:48:34 ag3nt_zer0: oh, nice

00:48:35 trinque: formerly austin tx

00:49:03 trinque: yourself?

00:49:07 ag3nt_zer0: oh austin... both places are on my list as possibilities to reside if I make it back from my trip

00:49:19 ag3nt_zer0: currently in silly valley

00:49:19 trinque: austin's a great place imo

00:49:37 trinque: portland's ok if you can ignore or enjoy abusing the communists

00:49:38 ag3nt_zer0: yeah it seems very nice

00:49:41 trinque: (I am the latter)

00:50:21 trinque: excellent business culture in tx

00:50:28 trinque: they worship capitalism

00:50:33 ag3nt_zer0: I hear that people actually have the strnegth to acknowledge eachothers presence if, you know, colliding on the street

00:50:51 trinque: oh, I've lamented the lack of eye contact on the street in Portland in the hallowed logs

00:51:00 trinque: can't stand that shit

00:51:03 trinque: it's cowardly

00:51:09 ag3nt_zer0: yes it certainly fucking is

00:52:22 ag3nt_zer0: I noticed a huge spike in this shit post 911/patriot act fear + smartphone... seems these events combined to cinch the asshole up to inpenetrable proportion

00:53:15 ag3nt_zer0: maybe it was the drugs, but I remember the 90s being quite different

00:53:21 assbot: Kentucky Man Defends Home From Drone, Faces Charges | Qntra ... ( http://bit.ly/1Muzms1 )

00:54:59 trinque: when the fuck did america side with the pussies

00:55:11 *: trinque engages alcohol-induced candor

00:55:17 ag3nt_zer0: haha

00:55:21 trinque: maybe I'm naive, but I'm certain this was not always the case

00:56:18 trinque: and I know the answer to my own question but... damn.

00:56:24 trinque: we had a short run.

00:56:55 trinque: BingoBoingo: an excellent perspective on the news as ever.

00:56:59 punkman: BingoBoingo: " to have been photographic "

00:57:24 ag3nt_zer0: yeah we arent naive... and the fact that we preface our observations with these "conditions" indicates how fucking cancerous the psychic milleu is here in mcsoccermomland...

00:57:32 BingoBoingo: fixed

00:57:46 BingoBoingo: ty trinque

01:00:10 trinque: ag3nt_zer0: I have a half-baked theory that america was merely running on the fumes of the hierarchical beliefs of people that immigrated here

01:00:39 trinque: which dissolved, absent the political structures which conditioned them that way elsewhere

01:00:50 ag3nt_zer0: speaking of texas and guns: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4CDFxeB7Y-s

01:00:51 assbot: I Can't Believe They Let You Do That! - YouTube ... ( http://bit.ly/1MuAtba )

01:01:01 trinque: I'll check it out when I leave

01:03:56 williamdunne: trinque: Already done

01:04:06 williamdunne: pete_dushenski: Whats scoop doin?

01:04:49 trinque: williamdunne: cool

01:05:23 williamdunne: Oh, scoop is disconnected from IRC but not the internet. I'll look into it

01:05:31 williamdunne: Ah I know what it will have been

01:05:34 williamdunne: Very unique issue

01:05:46 williamdunne: I'll fix it in a mo

01:06:16 trinque: every irc bot is such a turd

01:06:37 trinque: guy that wrote tenyks told me I hate trannies, fucking cunt

01:06:44 trinque: I'm gonna eventually write one that works in CL

01:06:57 punkman: lolwut

01:07:01 ag3nt_zer0: trinque: my old neighbor here in scam jose just bought a huge spread in merlin, OR... she showed me some pics it looks so nice...

01:07:12 trinque: punkman: I said to him that the guy who was run out of some ruby project for being catholic was wronged.

01:07:17 trinque: and he went total SJW on me

01:07:28 trinque: unimpressed, and he wrote the bot I based deedbot- on

01:07:35 trinque: I loathe these people.

01:07:56 trinque: ag3nt_zer0: it's a truly beautiful state, but the people here are red-blooded communists

01:08:09 trinque: I'm thinking of heading a bit north to WA

01:08:13 ag3nt_zer0: yeah the whole left coast

01:08:26 trinque: at least WA has a bit more get-up-and-go

01:08:30 ag3nt_zer0: yeah beenlookinf there too.. and montana, and alaska

01:08:52 trinque: hell we should probably all go swing our highly competent dicks in Buenos Aires at some point.

01:09:09 ag3nt_zer0: sounds like great fun

01:09:10 trinque: sounds like they barely know what they want politically

01:21:12 ag3nt_zer0: re: felonies

01:24:23 trinque: so the legal precedent here is that your property can be violated by a low-flying drone and there isn't shit you can do about it?

01:24:25 trinque: got it.

01:32:58 mircea_popescu: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=29-07-2015#1217106 << which one is this yelp again ?

01:32:58 assbot: Logged on 29-07-2015 22:35:04; pete_dushenski: yelp market cap now 1.87 bn and is down 70% this year. wd sv !

01:35:25 mircea_popescu: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=29-07-2015#1217134 << o.O ?!

01:35:25 assbot: Logged on 29-07-2015 22:57:10; mod6: The Foundation isn't going to ship these builds scripts any more. We're just going to ship source code for bitcoin.

01:36:47 mircea_popescu: doesn't sound like too bright an idea.

01:37:11 mircea_popescu: for that matter, sourceforge did go away.

01:39:10 mircea_popescu: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=29-07-2015#1217142 << doesn't have to be a one size fits all. but if your software can't be built, your software doesn't exist. and it is still upon you to explain how you expect users to use your thing - nobody is going to go do the guesswork of "what the author might have meant", and ESPECIALLY no sane person should ever guess what "obvious" means for anyone else.

01:39:10 assbot: Logged on 29-07-2015 23:05:49; mod6: Trying to create a one-size-fits-all script for everyone to use to build this thing is not going to work. And how does one bundle up something such as 'rotor' and end up not maintaining buildroot and everything else? That's a game that I'm not interested in playing. And it's dangerous for us to go that direction.

01:39:49 mircea_popescu: this "pure code" approach is no different from every other "pure research" proposition - sure, you're purely able to pursue pure goals now, but the cost is any conceivable relevancy.

01:41:35 mircea_popescu: in any case in the triangle "monthly releases" "mod6 does all teh work" "bitcoind is usable" i'm not going to pick the first two for fucks sake.

01:41:50 mircea_popescu: what sort of priorities be these.

01:58:07 mircea_popescu: or somethinglikethat.

01:59:28 trinque: no kidding. the resistance to intelligence is palpable.

02:07:07 decimation: usg claims *all* airspace on its lands, starting at 0 feet

02:08:26 decimation: just like usg claims all your ideas: "To promote the Progress of Science and useful Arts, by securing for limited Times to Authors and Inventors the exclusive Right to their respective Writings and Discoveries;"

02:08:44 decimation: ^ how could the constition give you your ideas if usg didn't own them first?

02:11:50 hanbot: doesn't seem to claim any ownership

02:14:45 decimation: it's an implict claim

02:15:56 trinque: I reject entirely the notion that concepts can be owned.

02:16:13 hanbot: and also beer.

02:16:19 trinque: yeah beer too

02:18:04 trinque: because they don't own the concept if that's what they claim they're doing

02:18:09 trinque: it implies massive domination of *action*

02:18:18 hanbot: i suppose this works ok up until one morning you wake up to find we've all changed nicks to trinque and there's just no way to make any sort of further sense of b-a

02:18:47 trinque: I dun geddit, yet lol

02:19:17 hanbot: at the very least classes must own their names.

02:20:20 trinque: I will revise to: no one can prevent me from making use of a concept; they live in the mind

02:20:36 trinque: I'm responding to decimation re: IP

02:20:41 hanbot: for as long as they stay there i doubt anyone cares.

02:21:05 trinque: to the extent that someone thinks they own a concept, I may lie and let him think so

02:21:10 trinque: yet I will use the concept any way that benefits me

02:21:52 hanbot: well the way it usually works is that if you try to make the movie / tshirt / book of the concept you end up losing whatever profits.

02:24:38 trinque: sure, and those are actions, and someone may or may not use their power to foil you

02:24:42 trinque: but you can't own a fucking concept

02:24:46 trinque: those are arrangements of language

02:25:21 hanbot: you're fighting a strawman, really. might as well claim "nobody could truly own a cow". they just take the milk is all.

02:25:37 hanbot: "beneficial ownership"

02:26:03 BingoBoingo: So transaction orphanage not as clean to cut out of 0.7.2 but done. Bitcoin running. Now to see if it catches up.

02:26:13 trinque: I'm speaking about the cultural vulgarity of "I own that idea"

02:26:19 trinque: if you disagree, so be it

02:26:33 trinque: controlling an idea requires an immensely more repressed society than I would prefer to live in

02:26:54 trinque: I only live that my thoughts may be less encumbered by morons by the day

02:28:04 hanbot: obviously the whole ip thing needs you not to own your bank account to work. places where that's not available develop a knockoff culture and get pretty loud. see south east asia.

02:29:01 hanbot: the choices you get are the choices you get. the choices you wish to make are something else.

02:29:10 mod6: mircea_popescu: wouldn't it be just fine if we don't ship a "stator.sh" or an "auto.sh" in the source and simply just maintain a cookbook and preferred steps like I was saying here: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=29-07-2015#1217135

02:31:24 assbot: Installing Eulora - Eulorum ... ( http://bit.ly/1LYPP8N )

02:31:34 mod6: exactly what I'm referring to.

02:31:40 mircea_popescu: not merely just an auto.sh, but step by step instructions to a level of detail never seen in open source.

02:31:44 mod6: you brought that up the otherday, agree 100%

02:32:00 mircea_popescu: more's the point here, i get the impression you're chaffing under too much workload.

02:32:03 mircea_popescu: !up mitzip

02:32:21 mod6: we need something that people can utilize to make it work. i totally agree with that. and scripts and other widgets to make it work could even be a separate bundle.

02:32:54 mod6: well, i've been pushin pretty hard as far as work load -- what scares me is taking on buildroot and trying to bundle/test the entire thing.

02:33:21 mircea_popescu: ok but listen, deep breath time.

02:33:30 mod6: and besides, we haven't exactly had great luck with our own build scripts to date.

02:33:32 mircea_popescu: useful work is useful work. taking responsibility for the whole world is a different story.

02:33:35 mircea_popescu: why mix the two.

02:34:00 trinque: mod6: I've already been testing some of your stuff; if nobody else wants to manage the build script, I'm fine with it

02:34:07 mircea_popescu: sure, not to date. but we're not going by the criteria of what is easy, so we don't really care. if we won't have success for the next decade we'll be here trying it in 2026.

02:34:08 trinque: offer's open

02:34:19 trinque: I've got a 4u collecting dust, etc etc

02:34:57 trinque: ben_vulpes has also put some work into his own script, so maybe he wants to handle it

02:36:58 mod6: trinque: he and i discussed this breifly. and I won't speak for him here. but i wouldn't have said what I said earlier without at least a discussion about that.

02:37:07 mod6: i think he's as tired of our build script problems as I am.

02:37:17 mod6: which is why he said he wrote that in the first place.

02:37:20 mod6: but mircea_popescu makes sense.

02:37:27 trinque: yeah, I mean the thing needs a derpinstaller

02:37:31 trinque: there aren't enough smart people in the world

02:37:41 trinque: even among the smart people... :p

02:38:00 mircea_popescu: mod6 just don't go to this dark place where "omg it's the 29th and i must have a working final version of bitcoind to announce

02:38:01 mircea_popescu: "

02:38:15 mircea_popescu: you don't belong there, and moreover that's just not our company style.

02:38:17 mod6: oh no. i wasn't planning on that at all this month anyway.

02:38:26 mod6: not even for a few months -- even before rotor came out.

02:38:56 mod6: the idea was; put out this test bundle and see if we're on the right track and if anyone hits any problems with any of the patches.

02:39:32 mircea_popescu: that said, obviously the effort to make anything work on the stack of shit we inherited from our retarded ancestors is nothing short of immense. but, chipping away at it is going to deliver, and confronting it is definitely going to show us a few useful things.

02:39:59 mircea_popescu: mod6 so far 90%+ of the problems have been with installation, from what i've seen

02:40:53 mod6: yeah totally agree. and i can't help but wonder if it's simply because of things that each persons different host has not installed by default. but it's hard to account for all of that.

02:40:59 mod6: hard, not impossible.

02:41:25 mircea_popescu: yeah. still, it's valuable to try, because if you help people they'll help you.

02:41:30 mircea_popescu: later on.

02:42:09 mircea_popescu: otherwise struggling with installers etc is a horrid trudge, but it is also an investment in human capital.

02:43:28 mod6: so i guess there is still a bit of a fork in the road; even if we do all of the hard work of ensuring peoples host dependantcies are installed before any compiling is even attempted, do we even want that to be a thing, as stan said, this is now obsolete. And do we now maintain a lot of other things for buildroot?

02:44:16 mircea_popescu: we will have to at the very least maintain packages we want to use, in the basic sense of, archival for download.

02:44:31 mircea_popescu: this sounds patently insane, i agree, but i just recently discovered in unrelated proejct that it's unavoidable.

02:44:41 mircea_popescu: sourceforge goes down, there goes youre entire project, seriously ?

02:44:49 mircea_popescu: can't even afford this for eulora, let alone for bitcoin.

02:45:02 mod6: yeah I saw that about the eulora thing.

02:45:16 mircea_popescu: and do not buy into the illusion that it was an isolated incident.

02:45:28 mircea_popescu: it could happenb to sf, it can and definitely will happen to github etc.

02:47:08 mod6: so should we still create scripts for people to build without buildroot (i.e. stator.sh/auto.sh) and then host packages for the ability to construct a buildroot with a drop-in of the foundation source?

02:47:15 punkman: I'm willing to contribute Ansible scripts to deploy/build/debug instances of bitcoind via ssh to different machines. for automating some of the testing workload.

02:49:04 mircea_popescu: but i'm pretty sure can't simply abandon the entire userland question, it'd be a major strategic mistake.

02:49:17 mod6: i agree. i'm just being careful not to create more work for myself/others than necessary.

02:49:28 mircea_popescu: i can appreciate that.

02:50:00 mircea_popescu: decimation that's what makes it suspicious. 20mn slashdot, 2bn github. because... reasons.

02:50:07 mod6: ok well.... thanks for setting me straight.

02:50:51 mircea_popescu: anyway, you should prolly take a bit of time away from the hands on work you love and do some management stuff.

04:16:57 asciilifeform: which can build kernel at boot time (!)

04:17:03 asciilifeform: and, perhaps, other things

04:18:03 asciilifeform: so, at the risk of repeating myself, i gotta agree with mircea_popescu here and respectfully disagree with mod6

04:18:20 asciilifeform: this thing will go nowhere if we declare the gnarliest problem (build) a non-problem

04:18:29 asciilifeform: must have a guaranteed, canonical build

04:18:37 asciilifeform: yes, even if this means we end up maintaining a kernel.

04:18:39 decimation: and the argument for linux?

04:18:40 asciilifeform: and a gcc fork.

04:18:44 decimation: has the widest hardware support?

04:18:58 asciilifeform: we don't need most of it

04:19:01 asciilifeform: (the hardware)

04:19:04 decimation: aye

04:19:30 asciilifeform: so long as we have a cpu, a nic, and a block device, we're golden on the given set

04:19:47 asciilifeform: there are not so many cpu, nic, or block devices in circulation today.

04:20:04 asciilifeform: i have considered, for instance, a move to 'minix'

04:20:22 asciilifeform: shortest kernel that bitcoin could sit down on is probably some variant of minix

04:20:26 decimation: heh I didn't realize it still existed

04:21:03 BingoBoingo: I'm looking forward to March of 2017 where at this rate Bitcoin successfully becomes a device.

04:21:11 asciilifeform: decimation: probably something like qnx

04:21:15 asciilifeform: but i will never know

04:21:22 decimation: there's a long way from minix to hardware

04:21:25 asciilifeform: because it is a commercial platinum toilet

04:21:33 decimation: asciilifeform: yeah, I know

04:21:45 asciilifeform: decimation: as i said, not so much hardware to support

04:21:48 decimation: it would be interesting to see what golden toilet prices buys in terms of os

04:21:57 decimation: yeah it's not the hardware, it's the logic

04:22:04 decimation: I was meaning 'compile to vhdl'

04:22:20 asciilifeform: decimation: the classical bitcoind, unfortunately, ~does~ require threading - and thus, a slice scheduler

04:22:31 decimation: indeed.

04:22:32 asciilifeform: also needs support for large (modern) block devices

13:35:48 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: single-packet auth is the only gossipd worth using.

13:35:49 mircea_popescu: i wish it were made a law that no isp may provide udp connectivity for a price under the minimum wage.

13:36:12 mircea_popescu: you can have single packet auth outside of udp.

13:36:15 Azelphur: mircea_popescu: you realise UDP is essential for a number of services and that they wouldn't function using TCP, right?

13:36:17 asciilifeform: whether it is done with udp as such or raw ip (i.e. udp with protocol field set to 666) is immaterial

13:36:22 mircea_popescu: Azelphur fuck them all.

13:36:26 mircea_popescu: and no ntp either.

13:36:48 mircea_popescu: i don't care what you need. fuck you and your needs. the infrastructure can't support udp in the current configuration. you don't get udp for this reason.

13:36:53 Azelphur: mircea_popescu: so fuck most VOIP services, Games, and anything else that requires low latency without packet delivery confirmation? XD

13:37:15 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform not germane, even though valid.

13:37:20 Azelphur: Also, if anything UDP is lighter on the infrastructure than TCP

13:37:23 asciilifeform: ^

13:37:24 mircea_popescu: not so.

13:37:32 mircea_popescu: it is only lighter if used by responsible users.

13:37:39 mircea_popescu: until you get those, it's just a ddos haven.

13:37:42 asciilifeform: irresponsible users are to be unplugged.

13:37:48 mircea_popescu: do that, then i'll change my mind.

13:38:26 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: the thing about raw ip is that it typically requires os support

13:38:39 mircea_popescu: hey, im not saying there's a good alternative.

13:38:46 asciilifeform: and, more direly, well-behaved routing

13:38:47 mircea_popescu: im just saying you don't own the moon, is all.

13:38:52 mircea_popescu: whether its made of cheese or not.

13:38:59 asciilifeform: (it is much easier to filter, and will be filtered by usg infrastructure.)

13:39:44 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu prefers to be ddosed with tcp ?

13:40:39 mircea_popescu: yes. much easier to filter.

13:40:48 asciilifeform: i will say it again, the push against udp is usg disinfo. and everyone who buys into it should retreat to the library with a copy of richard stevens and think very carefully.

13:41:24 asciilifeform: it is physically impossible to get any easier to filter than udp-with-signature

13:41:43 asciilifeform: because: no state.

13:41:47 mircea_popescu: no dude, your solution is right. want "internet" ? sure, 50 dollars a month gets you gawker, washitpo and crapple dot com.

13:42:02 mircea_popescu: they do not belong outside of the walled gardens, keep em there.

13:42:29 Azelphur: Surely in that example most of your business would never have existed?

13:42:32 asciilifeform: and i suppose i will write letters to mircea_popescu and spirit them out in the rectums of pig carcasses loaded onto the great sailing ships ?

13:42:55 mircea_popescu: Azelphur the part of my business that consists of redditards opining would never have existed. to my benefit.

13:43:01 Azelphur: (No access to outside websites -> no access to Bitcoin -> Bitcoin never takes off)

13:43:11 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform the absence of a solution is not an argument in favour of shitpiles.

13:43:50 asciilifeform: routing tcp no-questions-asked while filtering packets that could be signature-authed without storing state is braindamaged.

13:43:53 Azelphur: heh

13:44:01 asciilifeform: note that i'm all for rejecting unsigned udp

13:44:06 asciilifeform: (presently all of it)

13:44:15 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform so then we don't even disagree.

13:44:48 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: the link concerned ~infrastructure~. usg is trying so that when i get my signed udp, and try to send it to mircea_popescu, it won't leave my street even.

13:45:10 asciilifeform: this is different from 'i recommend that mircea_popescu filter all unsigned udp at his door'

13:45:39 mircea_popescu: you are aware the usg can't maintain infrastructure anyway, and if you persist in staying there you will one day connect to b-a via satellite phones provided by, likely, fucking spain.

13:45:40 mircea_popescu: right ?

13:45:46 asciilifeform: alcatel is usg to me

13:45:49 asciilifeform: and so is every oceanic fiber.

13:46:27 mircea_popescu: usg is arguing that "olympics are bad mkay, not because we can't afford anything, but because <<<gentrification>>>".

13:46:45 mircea_popescu: if you think the dispute as to how internet won't be available in the future in the us comes down to what anyone wants, usg or not usg...

13:46:48 asciilifeform: that is one usg, yes

13:47:18 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i don't see this picture where it is absent in us but somehow present in patagonia

13:47:46 mircea_popescu: as the bear was getting ready to stomp the anthill, the anthill in question was very animated by the following political debate : some ants wanted to tear down one wall, while some other ants thought this is stupid.

13:48:01 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform yes, because you bought into the ridoinculous "us=world" nonsense.

13:48:11 mircea_popescu: tell you what, it'll fall into the ocean and nobody'll even notice.

13:48:18 asciilifeform: as far as the machines are concerned, this is actually true

13:48:29 mircea_popescu: i guess you get to see the wonder to believe the wonder then.

13:48:52 asciilifeform: recall thread with chinese si fabs running winblowz ?

13:48:57 mircea_popescu: yes.

13:49:19 mircea_popescu: recall the thread with the sluts living there wearing "D&G" purses ?

13:49:24 asciilifeform: i dare to suggest that there is not a single transoceanic line or satellite in orbit that usg could not arbitrarily diddle, or remove entirely, at their pleasure.

13:49:38 mircea_popescu: and also beat up superman.

13:49:43 mircea_popescu: tu-tu-tuuuut!

13:50:28 mircea_popescu: looky here : "there's no blade of grass in the forest that the doe could not shit on, at its pleasure". perhaps. fact : grass will grow through where the antlers were, and not know the difference.

13:50:44 asciilifeform: ultimately - certain

13:50:52 mircea_popescu: not that far off, either.

13:50:56 asciilifeform: everybody gets 'ozymandiased' in the end.

13:51:00 mircea_popescu: all the diddling it's gonna do, it mostly did already.

13:51:29 asciilifeform: recall the thread re: the 120 mains voltage ?

13:51:35 mircea_popescu: they're just broadly speaking acultural and unseflwarare enough, unlike the romans, so they don't spend three centuries waxing poetic over this understood situation

13:51:42 mircea_popescu: because too thick to understand it.

13:51:43 asciilifeform: some kinds of damage - stick around, long after the antlers have grown with grass.

13:52:06 mircea_popescu: to me 120 v is nothing but a quaint curio.

13:52:13 mircea_popescu: like reddit.

13:52:24 asciilifeform: check again once copper costs what silver does.

13:52:34 asciilifeform: this is not a win.

13:52:38 mircea_popescu: amusingly, this happens with some regularity in history

13:52:42 mircea_popescu: might be what, the 12th time maybe

13:52:55 asciilifeform: the times prior to mains current don't count.

13:53:04 mircea_popescu: because why ?

13:53:04 asciilifeform: because copper was negotiable.

13:53:55 asciilifeform: but efficiency and cost of cable aside,

13:54:18 asciilifeform: 120v is no mere curio to the folks in the u.s. or post-u.s. world whose cities burn on account of pinched-cable-and-too-many-amps

13:54:23 asciilifeform: a daily occurrence

13:54:34 asciilifeform: which is precisely twice as probably on 120v as 240

13:54:37 asciilifeform: *probable

13:54:42 mircea_popescu: i'm sure all sorts of things are not daily curious to various troglodytes.

13:54:58 mircea_popescu: raped-for-being-white is, i hear, a fact of life for the losers of the 3rd boer war

13:55:04 mircea_popescu: still, a quaint curio for me.

13:55:22 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu had 240 run to his flat ?

13:55:28 mircea_popescu: 220

13:55:34 asciilifeform: spiffy

13:55:37 mircea_popescu: oh, you mean for my brief stay there ?

13:55:47 asciilifeform: wherever living now

13:55:56 mircea_popescu: all the world is on 220 you know.

13:56:21 *: asciilifeform was warned that he might encounter both american and civilized voltage in ar

13:56:33 *: asciilifeform not certain whether this is actual problem there or not

13:56:41 mircea_popescu: i guess you could get 120 if you absolutely want it, via generators

13:56:59 asciilifeform: jp, notably, is a 120 land

13:57:05 asciilifeform: for reasons of conquest

13:57:17 mircea_popescu: so is american samoa. what of it.

13:57:43 asciilifeform: what of it, is that this 'gift keeps on giving' even after washington is buried in the sand.

13:57:51 mircea_popescu: i don't see it.

13:58:01 asciilifeform: like unix

13:58:08 mircea_popescu: just because some colonies have mental issues it does not follow anything except that some colonists need to extract head from ass.

13:58:38 asciilifeform: when extracting head from ass means 'you get to rebuild the things no one knows how to build now'

13:58:42 mircea_popescu: lmao check it out, liberia as well. that poor country.

13:58:43 lobbes: @rss announce list

13:58:52 lobbes: @rss remove http://nosuchlabs.com/rss

13:58:54 assbot: ... ( http://bit.ly/1gNelws )

13:58:54 lobbesbot: lobbes: Error: That's not a valid RSS feed command name.

13:58:54 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform yes, that's what it always means.

13:59:33 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: ergo, for so long as anyone has the choice of '120v or hunt rats by candlelight', there will be 120v around

13:59:41 mircea_popescu: so ?

14:00:14 asciilifeform: so - for martian, nothing of interest. for us earthlings who live in a world not entirely of our own creation - everything.

14:00:32 mircea_popescu: i imagine as long as "9 volt batteries or hunt rats by candlelight" is the choice, there's going to be a lot of "9 volt" systems out there too.

14:00:41 mircea_popescu: why's anyone's poverty, intellectual or otherwise, a criterion ?

14:01:29 asciilifeform: for same reason x86 is a criterion.

14:01:36 mircea_popescu: hardly.

14:01:42 asciilifeform: same deal incidentally

14:01:48 mircea_popescu: not in the slightest.

14:02:01 mircea_popescu: x86 makes sense. 120 volt is trivially abstracted away by two step transformers.

14:02:12 mircea_popescu: there's no alternative to x86 on the table.

14:02:30 asciilifeform: but they stick around for same reason

14:02:34 lobbes: @rss remove phuctor

14:02:34 lobbesbot: lobbes: Error: That's not a valid RSS feed command name.

14:03:00 asciilifeform: (not everything is a dc power supply with arbitrary input !)

14:03:07 mircea_popescu: nah. one sticks around because it works. the other because it's the best alternative. you don't like either of them, it's true, but that fact does not alter the reality.

14:03:12 mircea_popescu: one's a champ, the other's a hanger on.

14:03:40 asciilifeform: x86 'works' is perhaps the ultimate illusion.

14:03:46 asciilifeform: 'supports winblowz and unix' is not 'works'

14:05:09 asciilifeform: it sticks around because 'market' is a braindead slave to its own past, like pregnant cow

14:06:10 mircea_popescu: perhaps. whatd you have it run ?

14:07:00 asciilifeform: just pointing out the incongruity of 'x86 is winner'

14:07:43 asciilifeform: the situation of 'drivers', for instance, is quite analogous to situation where every block of flats has own voltage, frequency, and mains socket shape that the landlord felt like drawing on a napkin.

14:07:46 mircea_popescu: dja see the difference between "hmm, i intuit in my urine that x86 sucks" and "lolut, 120v?

14:08:03 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i see a difference of degree only

14:08:07 mircea_popescu: there's no alternative in a "moore's law" shithole, for very good reasons.

14:08:17 mircea_popescu: now that that curse's dead and buried, we can actually design this shit.

14:08:31 mircea_popescu: there wasn't much in the way of sane transportation routes in the fronteer, either.

14:09:06 trinque: asciilifeform: I did a binary diff between your binary posted to the ML and mine using bsdiff; the result was about 60kb

14:09:18 asciilifeform: trinque: you will notice that gcc embeds turds

14:09:18 trinque: might be interesting to inspect it and see what's different

14:09:59 asciilifeform: trinque: i did this experiment, and found quite a few variations (machine version strings - srsly, wtf gcc ? an automated annihilator for these is a necessity) ; optimizations

14:10:02 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform consider how rapidly bitcoin mining ditched the cpu, and then the gpu, to get a feel of just how unstable this domination you perceive is.

14:10:14 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: there was no legacy lockin in bitcoin !

14:10:20 pete_dushenski: BingoBoingo: any idea why qntra snarfed my comment ? i tried posting again but i'm being told it's a "duplicate". somehow stuck in moderation ?

14:10:20 mircea_popescu: except computing.

14:10:25 mircea_popescu: and microsoft fucking visual studio.

14:10:38 asciilifeform: in mining in particular.

14:10:47 mircea_popescu: there's no lockin in computing generally.

14:11:09 mircea_popescu: just as soon as the economics make sense, your x86 nemesis is gone. two years, tops.

14:11:10 mircea_popescu: TOPS.

14:11:16 mircea_popescu: now make the economics work.

14:11:20 asciilifeform: arm == x86 for my purposes.

14:11:45 asciilifeform: out with old hardwaremicroshit, in with new, same.

14:11:58 asciilifeform: where is the boundschecking cpu ?

14:11:59 asciilifeform: nowhere.

14:12:11 asciilifeform: though it existed in 1976.

14:12:17 mircea_popescu: same place the usable docs for bitcoin are.

14:12:19 mircea_popescu: waiting.

14:14:12 lobbes: @rss announce remove http://nosuchlabs.com/rss

14:14:14 assbot: ... ( http://bit.ly/1gNelws )

14:14:14 lobbesbot: lobbes: The operation succeeded.

14:14:16 lobbes: there, no more spammy

14:14:36 mircea_popescu: could it just do the announcements once ?

14:14:58 lobbes: williamdunne: if your bot can store teh history, feel free to take over. If not, then first one there wins, I guess ;/

14:15:06 decimation: lol being against udp is like being against IP

14:15:14 lobbes: well, I'm using the default 'supybot' RSS plugin

14:15:31 lobbes: which, I guess doesn't store history

14:15:35 mircea_popescu: lobbes and it has no storage ? aha

14:15:49 lobbes: aye, I'ma have to edit teh python

14:15:55 mircea_popescu: so any idea what causes the replay ?

14:15:56 punkman: it has but no persistence

14:16:09 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: me restarting phuctor

14:16:13 lobbes: ^

14:16:14 asciilifeform: causes the replay.

14:16:23 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform so if i restart fraudsters, it doesn't pop them out again

14:16:40 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i haven't any notion as to ~why~

14:16:50 mircea_popescu: does your restart fuck up the rss feed, such as by altering the dates it displays ?

14:17:00 asciilifeform: not on my end !

14:17:13 asciilifeform: i suspect that lobbesbot has an elementary bug where it allows rss feed to ratchet backwards

14:17:24 asciilifeform: i.e. loads a momentarily-down phuctor and says 'null set'

14:17:30 asciilifeform: then diffs from this null set when it comes back.

14:17:31 lobbes: I do notice the dates change on phuctor RSS

14:17:35 lobbes: when restart happens

14:17:37 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform so the rss feed is exactly identical pre and post restart. how would the bot know something changed then

14:17:42 lobbes: but bot should still be able to handle

14:17:50 asciilifeform: lobbes: i warned many times that the dates on phuctor are meaningless

14:17:57 *: lobbes nods

14:18:00 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform you don't get to respecify rss eh

14:18:05 mircea_popescu: people use prepackaged software

14:18:10 asciilifeform: i did warn.

14:18:27 asciilifeform: there is no field in the db presently for 'time when phuctored'

14:18:41 asciilifeform: there is ONLY time-submitted.

14:18:59 asciilifeform: i explained this in agonizing detail. it is in the log.

14:19:01 mircea_popescu: ok, so could it be that the lobbesbot sees new dates decides new articles ?

14:19:18 decimation: the only sane way to track diffs would be to keep the entire history then

14:19:25 lobbes: yeah, I think that is the problem, which it should be able to handle

14:19:30 asciilifeform: decimation: simply storing the last 20 or so would do it

14:19:36 mircea_popescu: yeah this scheme doesn't lend itself to much rss ing

14:19:37 lobbes: it should use the url as a PK

14:19:39 asciilifeform: but even simpler fix,

14:19:43 asciilifeform: DO NOT EVER RATCHET BACK!

14:19:45 asciilifeform: it is RETARDED

14:19:53 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform what's "back" when you don't keep time yo.

14:19:53 *: lobbes agrees

14:20:13 asciilifeform: 'back' is 'item is in memory cache but now isn't there when i load, it must have un-happened'

14:20:16 decimation: which is why you need the entire state

14:20:27 mircea_popescu: yeah, srsly.

14:20:32 asciilifeform: lobbesbot ~does~ keep a cache,

14:20:44 asciilifeform: i know this because it is not spewing same thing every five minutes

14:20:57 mircea_popescu: lobbes can you discern if he has a point, does the cache get 0'd out if it looks at a zero feed ?

14:21:00 asciilifeform: the only way it could possibly work as it presently does is by storing ~some~ history

14:21:16 lobbes: hmm, that is true

14:21:31 asciilifeform: considering that ~every single phuctored key so far~ is dated june, or may even

14:21:43 asciilifeform: iirc

14:23:03 mircea_popescu: and speaking of udp : fucking dns definitely must go away. stupidest kludge o nthe whole internet.

14:23:35 asciilifeform: it is also the foremost usg organ

14:23:47 asciilifeform: of the direct, unabashed kind

14:24:03 decimation: yes, ascii's wot-signed udp would be the first application for ip-to-namespace

14:24:36 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform aha.

14:24:40 asciilifeform: what i'd really like to see is what mircea_popescu proposes i use for single-packet auth that 1) isn't udp 2) existing net will reliably route 3) existing os will agree to emit without any new code running as root

14:25:19 asciilifeform: and 4) isn't readily and easily flagged and filtered as 't3rr0r1st net' by 90% of world's isp

14:25:35 decimation: ascii has a point here ^

14:25:44 decimation: udp can't be easily distinguished, and this is a gossipd-flavor

14:25:52 asciilifeform: ^

14:26:35 decimation: in fact, you need not put the true address of the recipient in the ip header as long as you can arrange to be somewhere to 'hear' it

14:27:21 asciilifeform: it is tcp which is the ultimate braindamage.

14:27:27 decimation: ^

14:27:40 decimation: pretending that you have a connection on a completely 'broadcast' media is fucktarded

14:27:44 asciilifeform: bringing back state and 'i just showed up and you have no idea who i am but can i pleeez have some bytes of storage'

14:27:52 asciilifeform: like the fucking orphan blox

14:28:20 decimation: and it's not exactly like it is hard to game the tcp state machine

14:28:36 asciilifeform: any protocol where someone gets something, anything more expensive than a bullet, for showing up at the gate,

14:28:39 asciilifeform: is ipso facto retarded.

14:28:40 decimation: you ban udp, and you are just gonna get syn floods

14:28:41 asciilifeform: no exceptions.

14:30:40 asciilifeform: the unfortunate place we're going to is where gossip packets can only be emitted, received, or routed by os that we personally issue; and will only travel on cables to and from mircea_popescu's house

14:30:47 asciilifeform: this is, i argue, an avoidable calamity

14:31:49 asciilifeform: and the way to avoid it is by resisting, unconditionally, any and all seemingly-reasonable suggestions by usg tools to constrict the permissible set of the net.

14:31:52 asciilifeform: for whatever reason.

14:31:59 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 35368 @ 0.00054084 = 19.1284 BTC [-] {3}

14:32:49 asciilifeform: ddos only exists because of usg. as in, deliberate decision to route maladdressed packets, infrastructurally.

14:32:58 asciilifeform: and it is part of a 'good cop & bad cop' act

14:33:05 asciilifeform: don't fall for the 'good cop'

14:33:31 asciilifeform: who tells that 'all will be well' if only you agree to limit net to tiny permissible set of stateful protocolz

14:34:36 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: realize that udp ddoes only ever existed because the net is willing to route packets 'from victim's' machine to the idiot tv boxes, who 'answer' them

14:34:39 asciilifeform: *ddos

14:34:49 asciilifeform: this is the one and only reason it was ever possible.

14:35:34 asciilifeform: usg never liked the lack of inspectorial insight that udp creates. so they have deliberately set up this situation, long ago

14:36:04 asciilifeform: they would much rather that everyone announce, for usg's ease of snoopage, when they are beginning to speak, and to whom, for how long, which order the bytes lay down in.

14:36:08 asciilifeform: as tcp forces.

14:36:34 mircea_popescu: dude srsly. the fact that jews favour marriage is no argument pro or against.

14:36:44 mircea_popescu: udp is braindamaged in that it requires a certain sort of world.

14:36:54 mircea_popescu: either provide it the sort of world it requires or visit its grave.

14:37:10 asciilifeform: except that it doesn't

14:37:22 mircea_popescu: what the usg does or doesn't do, wants or doesn't want, etc is irrelevant to everything, usg included.

14:37:24 *: decimation is confused how any criticism of udp doesn't apply directly to any 'higher' ip protocol

14:37:50 mircea_popescu: decimation upd is hard to filter.

14:37:51 asciilifeform: it is relevant to having created this bizarre situation where mircea_popescu thinks that tcp somehow solves ANY of the problems discussed earlier

14:38:02 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform you said yourself it's easier to filter!

14:38:10 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: very easy to filter: reject anything that isn't a valid gossipd packet addressed to your key

14:38:16 mircea_popescu: mno.

14:38:25 mircea_popescu: i gotta check keys. takes memory allocation. ddos.

14:38:29 asciilifeform: no allocation!

14:38:33 decimation: preallocated

14:38:38 mircea_popescu: ahaha what.

14:38:56 asciilifeform: statically allocated buffer

14:39:06 asciilifeform: can verify packets at line speed.

14:39:13 asciilifeform: (not even speaking of fpga variant here)

14:39:14 decimation: no need for cpu either

14:39:22 decimation: but oculd have in first instance

14:39:32 mircea_popescu: dude get out srsly. i had dedicated machinery go down because random muppet + udp.

14:39:36 mircea_popescu: what are you even on about.

14:39:52 decimation: how many of the muppet's packets were signed?

14:40:04 mircea_popescu: me to isp "turn off fucking udp altogether, it's stupid" isp to me "you'll have toi buy the trunk"

14:40:06 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: your machinery goes down even when you instruct it to drop all udp on the floor ?

14:40:38 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform the sort of machine that currently goes down is well i nthe six figure range.

14:40:45 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: you gotta understand the protocol stack.

14:40:47 decimation: lol

14:40:50 mircea_popescu: getting EVERYONE to entirely drop udp as a matter of policy would be a huge gain for me.

14:40:57 decimation: I process 1 gigE udp at line rate on commodity server

14:41:16 mircea_popescu: decimation any time you wanna try processing 2-5mps let me know.

14:41:16 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: so then you get flooded with TCP SYNs. same difference.

14:41:25 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform nope, those i filter ok.

14:41:26 decimation: or acks

14:41:29 mircea_popescu: neither.

14:41:31 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: but not udp?

14:41:33 mircea_popescu: udp is the problem atm.

14:41:34 mircea_popescu: yes.,

14:41:35 asciilifeform: throw out your filter then

14:41:37 asciilifeform: and get new one

14:41:39 decimation: ^

14:41:42 asciilifeform: because SAME FUCKING COMPUTATIONAL LOAD

14:41:43 *: mircea_popescu shrugs.

14:41:48 asciilifeform: to filter tcp syn vs empty udp

14:42:02 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform stop being theoretical on me. sure same load, not same amplification available.

14:42:11 mircea_popescu: who the fuck is going to create a syn flood for you.

14:42:21 asciilifeform: enemy.

14:42:25 asciilifeform: who else.

14:42:30 mircea_popescu: seriously, this discussion is asymmetrical.

14:42:37 mircea_popescu: i handle about two ddos attacks a week.

14:42:46 mircea_popescu: you maybe think about the theory of datagrams once a week.

14:43:20 asciilifeform: not as theoretical as mircea_popescu might think

14:43:26 mircea_popescu: in any case : if it were the rule that udp gets dropped universally, i wouldn't have to have above convo with provider.

14:43:33 asciilifeform: and never see gossipd

14:43:34 mircea_popescu: i'd count this as a plus.

14:43:50 mircea_popescu: ima see gossipd alright. atm, the infrastructure is not the problem.

14:44:00 mircea_popescu: it being written is the problem. as always.

14:44:02 asciilifeform: over what single-packet proto ?

14:44:11 mircea_popescu: excel to excel viruses!

14:51:21 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform ftr, i am noit proposing orphan-block TCP is any better. shouldreally be TCP/OB

14:51:23 mircea_popescu: nevertheless...

14:51:31 mircea_popescu: no solutions available does not make shit palatable.

14:51:52 mircea_popescu: i still wish udp died, and with it all the "Services" it provides. starting with dns, ntp and come to think about it

14:51:59 mircea_popescu: it's a fucking wonder "locales" don't somehow udp.

14:52:57 decimation: ntp has a fucktarded exploit - that makes neither 'exchange of time' nor 'udp' retarded

14:54:04 mircea_popescu: ntp IS a fucktarded exploit. of itself.

14:57:20 mircea_popescu: i find it kinda curious that asciilifeform and decimation can at the same time hold the discussion of political time we had recently in mind, and ALSO think breaking udp, or doing away with ntp is a bad idea.

14:58:07 mircea_popescu: what, jam tomorrow, maybe one day ima get gossipd over udp, perhaps, who knows ? meanwhile half the remaining usg online is BASED, and requires udp to survive at all ?

14:58:16 mircea_popescu: paint my nails and call me mary what the fuck is this.

14:58:58 mircea_popescu: no more udp => no more dns, no more ntp. win of all fucking time, i'd pay to see this happen tomorrow.

15:00:43 jurov: before udp, this originally happened to icmp, which then got filtered routinely... little did that help

15:00:59 mircea_popescu: also true.

15:05:12 kakobrekla: some providers can in fact drop all incoming udp traffic per ip.

15:05:40 decimation: I thought this was pretty standard for 'adult' cloud services

15:05:56 decimation: amazon aws certainly will not pass anything unless firewall is configured, for instance

15:06:37 kakobrekla: i wasnt talking about clold specifically.

15:06:59 decimation: it ought to be simply done in any standard router too

15:07:26 kakobrekla: i was in the place where mp is and they wouldnt do it.

15:07:28 kakobrekla: i moved.

15:08:07 mircea_popescu: decimation yes, unfortunately, yhet another advantage for shithole cloud. "hey, we drop udp at least". exactly the good cop bad cop alf was proposing. but i am not moving to fuckingf cloud, and im not using fucking cloudflare and so fucking om.

15:08:30 decimation: merely an example of an isp that can program routers

15:08:43 mircea_popescu: kakobrekla i might. atm not really a big enough deal, whatever, some people can't read fraudsters for half a day or w/e. but we were discussing the general point.

15:08:49 mircea_popescu: and the general point is udp does not belong.

15:09:55 decimation: so you are against single packet routing in general?

15:10:04 kakobrekla: he is coming back because he is getting that half hour.

15:10:05 mircea_popescu: no, i am against udp.

15:10:29 kakobrekla: as far as i can tell the attacker of qntra (fraudsters?) is the same as it was of bitbet last ddos.

15:10:38 kakobrekla: but my box did not go down.

15:10:43 kakobrekla: and i dont even have udp blocked.

15:10:52 mircea_popescu: do tell ?

15:12:29 *: decimation fails to comprehend the difference between 'udp bad' and 'routing single ip packets good'

15:12:47 mircea_popescu: decimation udp is widely deployed in the hands of idiots.

15:12:53 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i'm on a consumer fiber and, with modern hardware on my end (by no means six-figure), udp flood does not touch me.

15:12:57 mircea_popescu: everything that gives idiots voice is the avatar of evil.

15:13:05 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform did you ever have a decent one ?

15:13:13 kakobrekla: i am at online.net, recommended by davout (paymium). they have serveral levels of infrastructure to mitigate attacks.

15:13:26 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: as decent as it gets (line saturation)

15:13:31 mircea_popescu: jhahahaha

15:13:36 mircea_popescu: you're new, seriously.

15:13:44 asciilifeform: i mean, they can't walk in any faster than the 100Mb ethernet into the bldg

15:13:44 mircea_popescu: as decent as it gets = 500x line saturation three hops upstream.

15:14:04 mircea_popescu: yes, they can. they can send you a trillion packets in fifteen minutes.

15:14:13 mircea_popescu: because, again, udp.

15:14:22 asciilifeform: ok, those get dropped somewhere else

15:14:27 mircea_popescu: o i see.

15:14:27 kakobrekla: iirc server saw about 800 megs of the 5 gigabit incoming garbage

15:14:28 mircea_popescu: good for you.

15:14:31 asciilifeform: because how are they to walk in?

15:14:37 decimation: no, because ntp machines and misconfigured routers allow sending arbitrary packets

15:14:37 asciilifeform: through the window ?

15:14:44 mircea_popescu: they just take off the thing upstream. which IS six figures.

15:15:12 mircea_popescu: decimation fuck this "misconfigured" bs. because udp.

15:15:14 mircea_popescu: it is on its head.

15:15:14 asciilifeform: my isp clearly did not get defrauded in the same way as mircea_popescu's - because their six-figure machine does not as a result go down

15:15:28 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform you're basically falling fore the "shared hosting" bit

15:15:33 mircea_popescu: your isp never had the problem, is all.

15:15:42 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: not suggesting that everyone is to move to mordor and subscribe to this isp

15:15:44 mircea_popescu: feel safe all you want, and maybe you never get to matter enough to find out better.

15:16:31 asciilifeform: but will point out that the million-chump botnet can just as easily transmit syn flood as udp crud

15:16:45 decimation: ^ using misconfigured routers

15:17:06 asciilifeform: go, 'feel safe' because you went along with usg's transparent attempt to ban the only presently working single-packet transmission medium.

15:18:13 asciilifeform: ~they~ kick the dog

15:18:29 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu volunteers to shoot it, not realizing that the dog-kicker will kick every dog mircea_popescu ever bends to pet

15:19:17 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform it's not the "million chump botnet"

15:19:24 mircea_popescu: it's the dumbass services currently sitting on udp.

15:19:51 mircea_popescu: and you've never answered ot the main point here. http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=30-07-2015#1218091

15:19:51 assbot: Logged on 30-07-2015 14:57:20; mircea_popescu: i find it kinda curious that asciilifeform and decimation can at the same time hold the discussion of political time we had recently in mind, and ALSO think breaking udp, or doing away with ntp is a bad idea.

15:20:16 kakobrekla: you are all being theoretical. in practice you stop udp at least one step before the server in any way you particularity like and be done with it.

15:20:17 mircea_popescu: otherwise, the chump herd is eminently handle-able. the havok they can wreak by employing udp amps, not.

15:20:30 mircea_popescu: kakobrekla myeah.

15:20:43 mircea_popescu: except if that trunk serves idiots who need or think might need udp

15:20:44 decimation: but that's not udp's fault

15:20:46 mircea_popescu: in which case you have to pay.

15:20:49 mircea_popescu: yes, IT IS.

15:20:51 jurov: how is banning of udp going to magick dns/ntp away?

15:20:57 decimation: it's the fault of the misconfigured routers and the idiot ntp code

15:21:04 mircea_popescu: let them run on tcp/ip, should be fun to watch.

15:21:13 mircea_popescu: decimation if you shoot my dog by accident ima bury you

15:21:25 mircea_popescu: it can be the fault of the shitty gun you bought. buy better guns or more funerals.

15:22:03 jurov: then you'll just enable the reflection attacks right to your tcp port 80.. indeed fun to watch

15:22:10 asciilifeform: no routing of forged dest ip >>>>> no amplification ddos.

15:22:16 asciilifeform: that simple.

15:22:19 *: mircea_popescu reserves the sovereign right to blame anyhone on the path to the "accident" he chooses. so no, it's not "the misconfigured routers", i'm not the pitbull you put in the doorway, slam the door and it then "blames the misconfigured door".

15:22:44 decimation: okay, let's imagine a new 'mpdp' that is the same as udp except carries an extra bit to indicate whether the bearer is an idiot

15:22:47 mircea_popescu: atm, im blaming udp. and i would very much like to see it go away, right now.

15:22:57 asciilifeform: enjoy the syn floodz

15:23:04 mircea_popescu: leaving the entire pile of usg services in the lurch.

15:23:12 asciilifeform: so 'easy to filter' because ~no one is doing them~

15:23:15 asciilifeform: because presently no need.

15:23:30 decimation: is this new udp-like protocol acceptable?

15:23:34 mircea_popescu: yes, im sure the idiots "writing software" and "deploying apps" will soon write more crud and deploy more crap

15:23:43 mircea_popescu: at which point we'll re-have this conversation.

15:23:47 mircea_popescu: decimation for as long as no one uses it.

15:24:12 asciilifeform: realize that there can be no useful gossipd except with something like what is described above (i.e. udp but with protocol != 17)

15:24:37 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform there can trivially be gossipd-over-blockchain.

15:24:45 mircea_popescu: it'd bette rbe transport protocol agnostic.

15:24:56 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: what's on the cable ?

15:25:02 mircea_popescu: dragons.

15:25:09 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: if it's tcp, you are serving jam to folks for showing up

15:25:13 asciilifeform: because connection is stateful

15:25:16 asciilifeform: ergo - lose.

15:25:27 decimation: at any rate, the problem isn't udp or tcp, it's the fact that ip packets route without any signature

15:25:28 asciilifeform: no matter how many kilometres long your cock is, and how many cable spools it takes to hold it

15:25:48 mircea_popescu: decimation except he didn't like the fact yu gotta say where you're sending stuff "because usg snoops it"

15:25:58 mircea_popescu: i never comprehended the "anonimity" securityt posture, but whatever.

15:26:01 asciilifeform: i don't like the fact that i gotta say it in cleartext !

15:26:03 asciilifeform: not 'at all'

15:26:13 mircea_popescu: and how's third party gonna reads your codetext.

15:26:29 asciilifeform: third party gets to cry in the corner

15:26:36 mircea_popescu: so how does router know if to route ?

15:26:46 asciilifeform: router knows that it is routing a packet

15:26:51 asciilifeform: but not that said packet is part of a stream

15:26:53 mircea_popescu: to where ?

15:26:57 asciilifeform: (or what stream)

15:27:00 mircea_popescu: routing it to where!

15:27:01 asciilifeform: to destination.

15:27:06 mircea_popescu: no, because it can't check.

15:27:09 asciilifeform: yes, you need dest ip

15:27:12 mircea_popescu: ...

15:27:17 decimation: ^ need not be actual dest ip

15:27:22 mircea_popescu: sigh

15:27:25 asciilifeform: the part i'm objecting to is the sequence # thing

15:27:27 decimation: in fact, node could not have an actual ip at all

15:27:32 asciilifeform: and the multi-step connection opening

15:27:36 mircea_popescu: i get it, you want a woman that's transparent and doesn't bleed.

15:27:43 asciilifeform: i ~have one~

15:27:47 mircea_popescu: "onmly way to have gossipd"

15:27:48 asciilifeform: her name is udp with rsa payload.

15:28:08 asciilifeform: with procol # != 17 because mircea_popescu hates 17

15:28:16 mircea_popescu: mkay. i wouldn't be too worried about her fate - it'd cost usg more than it'd cost me to ditch udp.

15:28:29 asciilifeform: (my isp won't like != 17 either. i will have to send these packets to mircea_popescu by camel.)

15:28:51 mircea_popescu: you can send them via dpaste for all the difference it makes.

15:31:40 *: mircea_popescu wonders if he's the only one that remembers the major spammer-ddos wars of a few years ago.

15:32:37 jurov: were they reolved by banning a protocol?

15:32:44 mircea_popescu: essentially, yes.

15:32:51 mircea_popescu: it's where all this "ban udp" talk actually started.

15:33:22 mircea_popescu: but yes, it was practically shown that a) no actual protection from ddos exists, outside of the ostrich method discussed above and b) udp is the key to this state of affairs.

15:34:05 decimation: umm, 'access-list deny udp any any' on your subnet?

15:37:18 asciilifeform: that would be a major scientific advance

15:37:23 mircea_popescu: no.

15:37:38 mircea_popescu: i don't solve problems. i just throw away other people's solutions.

15:37:49 mircea_popescu: much like i don't make kids, the women make kids. i just kill some of the kids they make.

15:38:04 asciilifeform: i get it, this is most fun sport in the world

15:38:09 asciilifeform: until you drown in unsolved.

15:38:13 mircea_popescu: myeah.

15:38:38 asciilifeform: i'd love nothing more than for martians to fly over and shoot with disintegrator beam every single x86 box

15:38:41 asciilifeform: and every single arm cpu

15:38:53 mircea_popescu: let's start with something small.

15:38:54 asciilifeform: this is, if anything, even more batshit than what mircea_popescu asked for

15:38:57 mircea_popescu: like fucking udp.

15:39:28 asciilifeform: after which we get to write gossipd with tcp syn instead of udp

15:39:35 mircea_popescu: or dpaste.

15:39:42 asciilifeform: dpaste over pigeon ?

15:39:50 asciilifeform: srsly the pipe has to go through your wall

15:39:51 asciilifeform: same as mine

15:39:51 mircea_popescu: dpaste over alles!

15:41:42 *: asciilifeform bbl

15:41:54 mircea_popescu: OK, thanks Chester for the clear explanation.

15:41:54 mircea_popescu: Now, how can I verify my Windows 2008 domain server (with Sophos EndPoint Security) is configured correctly?

15:41:57 mircea_popescu: fucking hell.

15:42:12 mircea_popescu: ~WITH SOPHOS END POINT SECURITY~ dontcha know.

15:42:38 mircea_popescu: why are these things on the internet ? i do not wish anything to do with any of them.

15:42:49 mircea_popescu: brandheads.

15:43:12 jurov: they don't want anything to do either.

15:43:21 jurov: they want just buy and click

15:46:51 mircea_popescu: right.

15:47:18 mircea_popescu: anyway, the only way to solve this problem is of course ppp, ie pay per packet. and the only way to even run an internet at all is as a blockchain, which is to say mempool and all that.

15:47:22 mircea_popescu: but this may take a while.

20:13:10 ascii_field: kakobrekla: she and her fuckbuddy oversee a university lab where slave labour (grad students) work (or pretend to) on 'ethereum'

20:13:24 kakobrekla: nice

20:13:26 mircea_popescu: lawl. actually hanbot & shinohai the stuff's quite well related. sv knows how to do one thing, the whole "make a market out of a trillion shitheads and sell them sheep olives for quarter pennies". and usg lives in this delusional alt-reality where it is enough for it to say, and things happen.

20:13:47 mircea_popescu: both these got a little crashed, and yes i'm going to bleed the living life out of the entire set of derp shartups, and yes it can say until it falls over.

20:13:58 mircea_popescu: but hey. until that day, every wooden cutout's a soldier.

20:14:24 shinohai: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Terracotta_Army

20:14:25 assbot: Terracotta Army - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia ... ( http://bit.ly/1DTbWoT )

20:15:32 mircea_popescu: ascii_field you will notice, if inclined to notice, the distress manifest in the reduction of funding.

20:15:43 ascii_field: reduction ?!

20:15:47 mircea_popescu: yes.

20:15:52 mircea_popescu: coinbase can live on no 2 million.

20:16:19 mircea_popescu: last year it was, "tens of millions". merely not jumping to hundred this year = fail

20:16:25 ascii_field: coinbase no, 2 uni profs - sure

20:16:32 mircea_popescu: but in fact it withered to a coupla, and doled out through the university program.

20:16:38 ascii_field: that 2m is ~just~ for that particular sc4ml4b

20:16:42 mircea_popescu: 2 uni profs aren't a threat to the fucking mice in their own lab.

20:16:54 mircea_popescu: it's scaling down, and painfully so.

20:17:15 mircea_popescu: the 2016 usg line re bitcoin will be that "never happened, not important, uninteresting"

20:17:20 ascii_field: wake me up when they can't afford to mine spamblox any moar.

20:17:21 mircea_popescu: much like the olympics they can't aford.

20:18:14 mircea_popescu: "it has problems, can't deliver on customer expectations, etc". you see the seeds in the amazon recent lol/

20:18:34 mircea_popescu: "bitcoin has problems that our system sucks"

20:19:10 ascii_field: yes, there is a ministry of usg that occupies itself with finding nails for the microscope to pound in, badly

20:19:15 ascii_field: but it is not the only ministry

20:20:02 mircea_popescu: the sv ministry got raped a little.

20:20:11 mircea_popescu: the agitprop ministry got raped a little.

20:20:17 mircea_popescu: there's really not that many.

20:20:39 mircea_popescu: anyway, be that as it may, i

20:20:44 mircea_popescu: 've never had this much fun in my life!

20:21:34 ascii_field: on a not entirely unrelated note, incitatus has been steadily ~100 blocks behind

20:21:44 ascii_field: for the last week or so, after (briefly) fully synced

20:22:01 ascii_field: the ministry of dropped packets is doing well.

20:22:27 trinque: which reminds me, my rotor instance chewed up its db when a drive's usb cable disconnected

20:22:33 trinque: and berkdb claims its a db?

20:22:41 ascii_field: trinque: this is not specific to rotor !!

20:22:45 trinque: course not

20:22:47 trinque: I know that

20:22:55 trinque: I'm going to restart it from the beginning

20:23:06 ascii_field: trinque: and go, unplug the disk of, e.g., a postgres

20:23:07 trinque: but it's a place for obvious improvement

20:23:10 ascii_field: you'll be surprised.

20:23:11 trinque: ascii_field: would not do this

20:23:15 trinque: write ahead log is for that

20:23:28 ascii_field: again, you'll be surprised.

20:23:35 trinque: as always, it depends

20:23:45 trinque: but I bet postgresql would win on balance

20:24:10 trinque: it's not an unsolvable problem to just hack off the frayed bit and begin again from there

20:24:18 ascii_field: trinque: you speak as if this thing didn't eat enough ram and weren't slow enough

20:24:30 ascii_field: now we also need a tcp crud pipe for every access to the blockchain ????!!

20:24:54 trinque: atomicity of writes would be nice.

20:25:01 trinque: how, a fine thing to think about

20:25:46 ascii_field: easy

20:25:52 ascii_field: keep all blocks in antifuse rom

20:26:09 ascii_field: n+1 bits per block, with the last one signifying 'finalized'

20:26:24 ascii_field: blow the last bit when 0...n represent valid block.

20:26:53 trinque: there, that's an awesome idea.

20:28:00 ascii_field: now go buy a silicon fab so that antifuse rom gets produced again.

20:28:19 ascii_field: it is - afaik - EXTINCT today

20:28:23 *: trinque turns the death metal on again, fitting as it is

20:28:39 ascii_field: the 'otp' chips sold currently are a FRAUD - eeproms with black epoxy instead of window !!

20:28:45 ascii_field: *eproms

20:30:07 phf: well block*.dat are essentially append only, the idea can be emulated by having transaction bits. you write a t bit, you write rest of block, when done flip t bit. on restart you walk backwards until the first flipped bit and you file truncate anything from that point on

20:30:25 ascii_field: nothing on a pc is 'append only' !

20:30:31 ascii_field: with possible exception of 'cd-r'

20:30:38 trinque: what he describes is effectively a wal log, what's wrong with it?

20:30:45 trinque: bleh, *wal, I mean

20:30:56 trinque: !up ascii_field

20:31:00 ascii_field: !s protocol vs promise

20:31:01 assbot: 2 results for 'protocol vs promise' : http://s.b-a.link/?q=protocol+vs+promise

20:31:26 ascii_field: there is an important difference between 'x will not happen because i promise not to stick it in that hole, really' and 'x cannot happen because physics'

20:31:52 ascii_field: and yes, people have occasionally been mistaken about physics

20:31:56 trinque: fair point, yet that means no atomicity til bitcoin has its very own hardware arch

20:32:01 trinque: maybe that's called for here

20:32:07 ascii_field: but in virtually every case known, it was really a case of 'i won't go in that hole, promise'

20:33:03 ascii_field: trinque: i was pointing out that you need a relatively minor (from r&d standpoint) device, that was ~once available~ and isn't today.

20:33:47 ascii_field: pertinent story:

20:33:53 ascii_field: i was once a sysadmin, for a spell

20:34:01 ascii_field: and we have a then-popular tape robot

20:34:24 ascii_field: the docs mentioned that one could buy 'write-once tapes', for usg regulatory compliance

20:34:49 ascii_field: this piqued my curiosity and i inquired to the vendor, how, precisely, does one make a write-once magnetic tape ?!!

20:35:09 ascii_field: was told that it is ordinary tape. but with a magic hole in the cartridge - like old floppy disk

20:35:16 ascii_field: that the drive would obey.

20:35:23 ascii_field: nearly fell down laughing

20:35:41 ascii_field: a fifty-cent magnet will 'rewrite' happily, these magical 'write once' tapes.

20:35:42 shinohai: "magic hole"?!

20:35:48 ascii_field: as will the tape deck and a piece of 'scotch'

20:36:05 ascii_field: shinohai: yes, like 3 inch 'floppy'

20:36:18 ascii_field: anyway, this is 'promise'

20:36:31 ascii_field: 'protocol' is when you can't rewrite because you can't unburn a hole.

20:36:47 ascii_field: (though still have to be careful because enemy can make holes in any place where you had not)

20:38:06 trinque: amazing how bitcoin drastically increases the requirements on rigor and correctness

20:38:06 assbot: AMAZING COMPANY!

20:38:11 trinque: ty assbot

20:38:34 ascii_field: trinque: in precisely the same way that abdominal surgery increases required standard of hygiene

20:38:39 phf: pray mr babbage

20:38:41 kakobrekla: <trinque> maybe that's called for here < actually its called for in many other places, you still dont get it.

20:38:53 ascii_field: ^^^

20:38:56 trinque: I get it just fine.

20:39:02 kakobrekla: where?

20:39:19 kakobrekla: get the hardware i meant.

20:39:25 trinque: chewing up a database on disk is a fine way to run afoul of the "I do not have the correct blockchain problem" the whole piece of software by its very purpose tries to avoid.

20:40:01 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 52750 @ 0.00054108 = 28.542 BTC [+]

20:40:04 trinque: and while you're fabbing hardware, might want to keep the integrity of the thing in the meantime

20:40:34 trinque: kakobrekla: ah I got ya

20:41:06 trinque: but then to continue in that vein, I do see how trying endless mitigations is a death by a thousand cuts.

20:41:33 ascii_field: none of this is hard to make.

20:41:43 ascii_field: in the sense that 'cold fusion' or elixir of immortality is

20:41:53 trinque: sure, just needs a business case that works like anything

20:41:59 ascii_field: we know how. but market does not want penicillin. it wants the normal cocktail of horseshit and opium

20:45:05 trinque: ascii_field: tactically speaking, supposing there just isn't time for antifuse rom?

20:45:17 ascii_field: ??

20:45:18 trinque: or <insert real solution here>

20:45:22 ascii_field: what means, 'isn't time'

20:46:15 trinque: or are we already in a position where things like the blocksize limit debate are moot

20:46:36 trinque: I took that to be one of the reasons to take over development of bitcoind

20:47:46 ascii_field: the reason to remove machine gun from the hands of a demented anal child is not necessarily that you need the thing for anything.

20:48:44 ascii_field: trinque: i'll repeat the question - what is the meaning of 'isn't time' here ?

20:49:08 trinque: #up peterl

20:50:20 trinque: but in that case I suppose "let em fork" ?

20:50:23 ascii_field: there is no 'the network'

20:50:25 trinque: better to get bitcoind right?

20:50:32 ascii_field: there is the gavins, and there is the actual people.

20:50:35 ascii_field: it's that simple.

20:52:44 trinque: ascii_field: the hashing power monopoly scenario; say it forks and there's nearly no hashing power on the side of therealbitcoind

20:53:05 ascii_field: trinque: then we switch workfunctions

21:06:49 peterl: first I would have to make one

21:08:08 phf: ascii_field: is your argument then, on a higher level, if abstraction leaks it should not be introduced?

21:08:27 asciilifeform: !up ascii_field

21:08:41 ascii_field: phf: no. if it leaks, should find the author and boil him in oil.

21:08:56 ascii_field: it is very helpful, and should be introduced, so that we know whom to boil in oil.

21:10:21 ascii_field: it is entirely possible to make abstractions which do not, in any meaningful sense, leak.

21:10:40 ascii_field: e.g., hardly anyone knows - or needs to know - what chemical process precisely it was that produced his cpu.

21:17:39 phf: ascii_field: there's a lot of leaky abstractions in the current codebase, starting with "string" and "bignum". presumably the solution for those will be to port bitcoind to an architecture with tagged memory?

21:18:14 ascii_field: phf: and if you know of these leaking in some meaningful sense, please say.

23:13:47 decimation: but at any rate, you can experiment yourself, dump large quantities of data from one machine to another. you will find a non-zero error rate eventually

23:59:10 BingoBoingo: It is hard to say what anyone counts on. It is also hard to say how well I actually understand the cpp I attempt a performance of reading. And so Imma keep chopping at this for a while to get more familiar with the code. main.cpp is already ~1000 loc shorter than 0.7.2 release, perhaps more. I figure Derp on 0.7, read 0.5.x and patches and maybe at some point I will understand

23:59:58 asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: imho, the problem is that the item you are becoming familiar with, has no future.
