decimation at any rate, I'm imagining ways to sew parachutes before they are needed [00:00]
asciilifeform when else. [00:00]
* mike_c (~mike_c@unaffiliated/mike-c/x-9105598) has joined #bitcoin-assets [00:01]
* assbot gives voice to mike_c [00:01]
decimation unfortunately with the effective bandwidth needed by the current blockchain makes global synchronization quite expensive [00:02]
decimation and internet-dependent [00:02]
decimation weird, the last four blocks had no transactions [00:04]
asciilifeform this may well be one of those things that can be made 'as simple as possible but not simpler' [00:04]
asciilifeform weird, the last four blocks had no transactions << betcha somebody's playing with the 'tx selector' thing [00:05]
asciilifeform and botched horribly [00:05]
decimation I guess as long as they find a block that matches difficulty it will be valid [00:06]
decimation it would sure make it simpler to devise a big asic machine to find hashes if it doesn't need to bother with transactions [00:06]
asciilifeform not really [00:07]
decimation although you would give up on fees [00:07]
asciilifeform given the merkle tree thing, tx's don't really add to the load [00:07]
* knotwork_ (~markm@unaffiliated/knotwork) has joined #bitcoin-assets [00:07]
decimation ah yeah good point [00:08]
asciilifeform but it would stand to reason that miners will eventually exert more tx fee pressure [00:08]
asciilifeform perhaps this is already happening. [00:08]
* knotwork has quit (Ping timeout: 256 seconds) [00:08]
decimation the big blocks are running nearly a mb or so [00:09]
asciilifeform at any rate, various folks have mined empties before. afaik, it is not publicly known precisely why. [00:09]
asciilifeform decimation: bozos are stuffing'em full of garbage tx, in an attempt to prop up gavinism [00:09]
assbot [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 90320 @ 0.00051341 = 46.3712 BTC [-] {2} [00:10]
decimation asciilifeform: maybe the naked blocks are a counterpoint :) [00:13]
decimation 5 blocks. 4 are attributed to f2pool, one to antpool by [00:14]
assbot [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 13830 @ 0.00051629 = 7.1403 BTC [+] [00:15]
punkman didn't those guys want 8mb blocks? [00:15]
* asciilifeform kinda wants a wall-sized callgraph of therealbitcoin [00:19]
asciilifeform possibly using [00:19]
assbot ... ( ) [00:19]
asciilifeform nubbins` ^^^ [00:19]
decimation asciilifeform: I've tried printing such things before, even on a big plotter the results are disappointing [00:20]
asciilifeform how come ? [00:20]
decimation plotter is usually limited to 4 ft rolls I think [00:20]
decimation so you gotta make multiple passes [00:20]
asciilifeform local printery has 4ft inkjets [00:20]
decimation sure, but you gotta spend time massaging the graph into something legible even at that size [00:21]
decimation what comes out of 'dot' tends to be fucktarded with complex graphs [00:21]
asciilifeform so far i'm utterly failing to even get 'codeviz' to build. [00:22]
asciilifeform it seems to insist on downloading an ancient gcc and fails [00:22]
decimation heh [00:22]
asciilifeform mod6, ben_vulpes ^^^ who wants to try [00:22]
decimation to be clear, my experience is mainly with feeding dot such things, not from codeviz [00:22]
asciilifeform i want the fucking callgraph [00:22]
asciilifeform on my wall [00:22]
asciilifeform tired of looking at the thing through a keyhole [00:23]
decimation I think you can massage valgrind to dump callgraph [00:23]
asciilifeform want static callgraph [00:23]
asciilifeform rather than one which depends on a walk [00:23]
mod6 <+asciilifeform> mod6, ben_vulpes ^^^ who wants to try << i might be able to give it a go later this weekend ... maybe. [00:24]
decimation as in, all possible routes into and out of functions? [00:24]
mod6 any idea how old of a version is required? [00:24]
asciilifeform mod6: it's 4.something but dies because not found on the gnu ftp [00:25]
asciilifeform << another tool [00:25]
assbot egypt - create call graph from gcc RTL dump ... ( ) [00:25]
asciilifeform not tried yet. [00:25]
mod6 ah, i can give it a go with something as old as like 4.5.4 for sure. [00:25]
asciilifeform << and yet another. [00:26]
mod6 maybe even 4.0.4 (if it'll build) [00:26]
assbot KCachegrind ... ( ) [00:26]
* CheckDavid has quit (Quit: Connection closed for inactivity) [00:26]
asciilifeform ^ refuses to build on my boxes also [00:27]
asciilifeform qt retardation [00:27]
mod6 as always :] [00:30]
decimation the egypt thing appears to have limited support for C++ [00:31]
* deedbot- has quit (Remote host closed the connection) [00:31]
cazalla apparently network forked or some business [00:32]
punkman [00:35]
assbot F2Pool is not properly validating blocks, their fork is winning temporarily. SPV clients and are inaccurate : Bitcoin ... ( ) [00:35]
punkman shitgnomes strike again? [00:35]
decimation why are they 'inaccurate' [00:36]
mats o calamity [00:36]
assbot [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 10653 @ 0.00051757 = 5.5137 BTC [+] [00:38]
decimation it does seem and have two different chains [00:39]
punkman "BIP66 protocol rule changes have gone active in part thanks to Antpool and F2Pool's support of it - but their pool appears to not actually be enforcing the new rules, and is now mining invalid blocks." [00:40]
assbot [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 84234 @ 0.00051578 = 43.4462 BTC [-] {3} [00:40]
punkman "SPV nodes and Bitcoin Core prior to 0.10.0 may get false confirmations, possibly >6 blocks long, until this is resolved." [00:40]
mats so you're saying now is the time to fleece bitpay [00:46]
decimation here's the bip66 diff [00:47]
assbot Implement BIP66 by sipa · Pull Request #5713 · bitcoin/bitcoin · GitHub ... ( ) [00:47]
mircea_popescu sooo... we splitted hjuh ? [00:52]
decimation looks like it yes [00:52]
assbot [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 66300 @ 0.0005095 = 33.7799 BTC [-] {2} [00:52]

mircea_popescu i see 736 throughout [00:53]
mats it stalls [00:53]
decimation and apparently several folks fucked it up too [00:53]
mircea_popescu hm. [00:53]
decimation so this 'IsSuperMajority' code is totally absent in [00:53]
* WolfGoethe has quit (Quit: My MacBook Pro has gone to sleep. ZZZzzz…) [00:53]
mircea_popescu they'd just all happen to be employees of the house. << if you only divulge winning tickets you get the natural occurence of winners + extras. [00:54]
mircea_popescu ben_vulpes, mod6, mircea_popescu, et al: anybody interested in multiprocessorizing bitcoin sig check ? << i don't see the benefit. [00:54]
mircea_popescu decimation old nodes are all fine. [00:55]
mircea_popescu apparently new nodes are all shit. [00:55]
mircea_popescu news at 12:55, which happens to be the time here. [00:55]
mod6 heheh [00:56]
decimation do they reject blocks because the nVersion = 1? [00:56]
mircea_popescu Raising Darwin's Consciousness << all this "consciousness" bs reads to me like direct pastiche from "class consciousness" or however that nonsense was translated to english [00:57]
mircea_popescu i don't run one so nfi what its problem would be. ion all likeliness something stupid. [00:58]
mats looking forward to seeing the post mortem in the morning [00:59]
mircea_popescu of the active users. << well, like a dozen or so people, spent a month in game last month. so like, 2 hrs / day or somesuch [00:59]
mats and hopefully discount coins [00:59]
mircea_popescu heh we actually are forked nao. i dun see any such 738 [01:03]
decimation yeah I think we were forked a long time ago actually [01:04]
decimation this getconsensus stuff is lulzy [01:04]
asciilifeform << sync at line speed [01:07]
assbot Logged on 04-07-2015 03:50:47; mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes, mod6, mircea_popescu, et al: anybody interested in multiprocessorizing bitcoin sig check ? << i don't see the benefit. [01:07]
asciilifeform is the benefit. [01:07]
asciilifeform having to wait for cpu on a 16 core box is retarded. [01:07]
mircea_popescu asciilifeform listen, seems the chain actually forked. [01:07]
asciilifeform i see [01:07]
mircea_popescu none of my nodes verify the imaginary 737-738 claims to exist. [01:07]
phf somebody was saying bitcoind doesn't build on a 32 bit system? [01:09]
asciilifeform phf: pogo is 32bit [01:09]
asciilifeform builds beautifully [01:09]
mircea_popescu accepted connection [01:09]

mircea_popescu seems so. [01:11]
mircea_popescu i guess they eventually settled on pretending it's an accident or what ? [01:12]
ben_vulpes FORK [01:12]
ben_vulpes FORK? [01:12]
ben_vulpes FORK! [01:12]

mircea_popescu [ This is the only occurrence ] [01:13]
mircea_popescu anyone see one ? [01:13]
* asciilifeform envious of mircea_popescu's spiffy ph0rkdebugger [01:13]
mircea_popescu ( cat debug.log | grep -B3 "blocks=363738" if nothing else) [01:13]
asciilifeform but yes, i've had sync scrolling for says, and seeing quite a few 'nonstandard tx, rejected...' [01:14]
mircea_popescu yes, but those happen all teh time [01:14]
asciilifeform yes. [01:14]
mircea_popescu << apparently they orphaned everything past's [01:15]
assbot Blocks mined on 04/07/2015 [01:15]
assbot Bitcoin Blocks At Height 363730 ... ( ) [01:15]
mircea_popescu looks a lot like a withholding chain attack tbh [01:16]
asciilifeform 363741 on 0.8 [01:16]
mircea_popescu note the orphaned is 8 blocks long [01:16]
mircea_popescu the "lonmger chain" 6. [01:16]
mircea_popescu sorry, i mean 6 and 5. [01:16]
mircea_popescu anbd how teh fuck does it continue on an orphan block anyway [01:17]
ben_vulpes "However, this also means they're not checking the new BIP66 rule, and are now mining invalid blocks because of it. (another miner happened to create an invalid, non-BIP66 respecting block) If you're not using Bitcoin Core, you might be accepting transactions that won't be on the longest valid chain when all this is fixed." << curious to see if 0.5.whatever comes out on top at the end of this [01:17]
ben_vulpes my position being "if your notion of a valid block has to patch 0.5.*, get fucked." [01:18]
asciilifeform ^ [01:18]
decimation yeah but this apparently happened awhile ago [01:18]
decimation when they put the IsSuperMajority code check in [01:18]
mircea_popescu ben_vulpes tjhat's the only position. [01:18]
asciilifeform i did say, no? [01:19]
ben_vulpes "The majority of hashing power is mining an invalid chain - it's not going to "win" - they're just wasting their effort." << euheuheuheuheuheheehueheuheuheehu [01:19]
mircea_popescu "new bip66 rule" my foot. [01:19]
asciilifeform shitgnomatic bitcoin has been a fork since gavin turned [01:19]
asciilifeform and likely prior. [01:19]
mircea_popescu anyway. [01:19]
ben_vulpes simple rehash of the "let's probe network cohesion strength" fork [01:19]
asciilifeform a fork that hasn't sprung yet is still fok [01:19]
mircea_popescu ben_vulpes wait, the usg dept of stupid is now on the record that miners don't, after all, decide ? [01:19]
asciilifeform fork [01:19]
mircea_popescu can they make up their mind or something ? [01:19]
ben_vulpes so what, f2pool and phrenz dies next week? [01:19]
ben_vulpes nigga pleez [01:19]
mircea_popescu anyway, foundation ppl : plox to make a statement on this matter [01:20]
ben_vulpes "Except BIP 66 received 95% support from the relevant group (miners). " << ehuehuehehueeueueueueueeeee [01:20]
mircea_popescu gotta explain to the masses 1) how irresponsible it is to empower scammers, whjether they call themselves "pirate", "Gavin" or anything else [01:20]
mircea_popescu and 2) retty much that. [01:20]
* ben_vulpes sighs [01:20]
asciilifeform 3) не шагу назад [01:20]
asciilifeform (tm) (r) (stalin) [01:20]
ben_vulpes asciilifeform: translation plox? [01:21]
asciilifeform 'not one step back' [01:21]
mircea_popescu not a step bac [01:21]
asciilifeform the title of a 'papal bull' he signed during the war [01:21]
mircea_popescu BIP66 protocol rule changes have gone active in part thanks to Antpool and F2Pool's support of it - but their pool appears to not actually be enforcing the new rules, and is now mining invalid blocks << lulzy. [01:22]
mircea_popescu "we just sittin' here noddin'" [01:22]
ben_vulpes Bitcoin 0.5.3 is the canonical reference implementation. If a fork occurs and one side validates on the 0.5.3 codebase while the other does not, the chain that validates under 0.5.3 is the only valid chain. [01:23]
mircea_popescu Bitcoin Core (after 0.10.0) rejects these invalid blocks, but a lot of other stuff doesn't. SPV Bitcoinj wallets do no validation what-so-ever, blindly following the longest chain. doesn't appear to do validation as well; who knows what else? << [01:23]
mircea_popescu anyway, todd is right. the only way this affects us is that we don't really give much of a shit. [01:23]
ben_vulpes mod6 if you feel compelled to elaborate on this, go ahead. [01:23]
mircea_popescu let 'em figure out how to do soft forks or w/e. [01:23]
ben_vulpes i have a porch of meatwot and babes that actually need attending to. [01:23]
ben_vulpes frantic action is for the impotent. [01:23]
mircea_popescu i have nfi how the power rangers imagine they'll manage a hardfork when they can't as much as get a "relevant support" softwork that's fairly uncontroversial. [01:23]
ben_vulpes i've not yet accepted this soft/hardfork duality. [01:24]
asciilifeform ^ [01:24]
ben_vulpes things either validate under 0.5.whatever or they don't. [01:24]
mircea_popescu well, any people can at any time decide to narrow the rules. this makes some sense. [01:24]
decimation they claim this is a softfork [01:24]
mircea_popescu hard fork is enlarging the rules. [01:24]
mircea_popescu ben_vulpes all thios would validate under .5 [01:24]
decimation actually I think this is gonna be fine on 0.5 [01:25]
mircea_popescu the idea is they don't want to see some stuff that validates anymore [01:25]
mircea_popescu this is no skin off my back, who cares. [01:25]
ben_vulpes too bad, fuck them. [01:25]
mod6 <+ben_vulpes> Bitcoin 0.5.3 is the canonical reference implementation. If a fork occurs and one side validates on the 0.5.3 codebase while the other does not, the chain that validates under 0.5.3 is the only valid chain. << I have nothing further to add to this at this time. [01:25]
decimation the problem is that 0.5.3 blocks generated by 0.5.3 won't validate if those IfSuperMajority rules check [01:25]
mircea_popescu decimation provided their "mine support" actually materializes [01:25]
mircea_popescu otherwise, no. [01:25]
decimation well actually yes [01:25]
decimation because they already did a 'softfork' on the nVersion [01:25]
decimation I'm not sure if there are enough blocks to trigger it [01:25]
ben_vulpes T.I.A.S. (tm) (r) (#emacs) [01:26]
ben_vulpes mircea_popescu: anyone can narrow the rules, but whether that's "bitcoin" is an open question. [01:26]
mircea_popescu i dun see it. the rule is "come to school dressed". if you all agree to wear skirts or all agree to wear cardigans, it's still school. [01:28]
* ben_vulpes is also curious to see how much "political capital" the derpdation burns today [01:28]
decimation if (block.nVersion < 2 && IsSuperMajority(2, pindexPrev, consensusParams.nMajorityRejectBlockOutdated, consensusParams)) [01:29]
mircea_popescu o yea. that's part's gonna be epic. [01:29]
asciilifeform ben_vulpes knows full well that it'll be blamed on 'wreckers' [01:29]
ben_vulpes primarily, me. [01:29]
mircea_popescu lmao right. [01:29]
mircea_popescu get out. [01:29]
ben_vulpes :P [01:29]
ben_vulpes i never did anything, we all know that. joke's almost too easy. [01:30]
ben_vulpes "Updating to the latest when what you have works is how you break things. [01:30]

ben_vulpes man all i can do is nail this coffin closed [01:33]
ben_vulpes one goddamn nail at a time [01:33]

mircea_popescu "Current status: F2Pool still broken; Antpool fixed (but no promise they won't intentionally re-break in the future)." is really all that one needs to lol [01:36]
decimation this is the dumbest fucking thing I've seen in all my years with bitcoin [01:36]
decimation if there's any reason why bitcoin will never be adopted, it's this kind of shit [01:36]
ben_vulpes "re-break"? [01:36]
mircea_popescu nah, the "we'll move to this new db system one schmuck that gofer'd coffee at google wrote with his chest hairs and nobody tested in any way" was the stupidest sahit [01:37]
ben_vulpes meaning adopt the power ranger braindamage again? [01:37]
mircea_popescu but the "we'll make wallet a plaintext file" and the "we'll target windows" and the "you know what's better than boost ? qt!" were pretty epic turn points too [01:37]
ben_vulpes shinohai: you around? [01:37]
mod6 shinohai: is your v0.5.3.1-RELEASE node up to dayte? [01:37]
mircea_popescu i don't think any sane nodes can be up to date atm, until this resolves. [01:37]
asciilifeform i doubt anything can ever beat the 'i'll use c++, and on vs for good measure' moment [01:38]
mircea_popescu anyway, having been duly amused for the evening, i retire to my eulorean empire. [01:38]
ben_vulpes trinque: do you have a RI up-to-date? [01:38]
trinque errr what's up to date? [01:38]
asciilifeform i got one that's a few hrs away from sync [01:38]
trinque I have a stator build [01:38]
mod6 the hope was to find if he can verify if v0.5.3.1 rejected or accepted the blocks in question; 363738 [01:38]
ben_vulpes synced [01:39]
trinque ah no sir [01:39]
trinque just deleted muh blockchain to resync [01:39]
mod6 mine is currently sync'ing against mp's seed. [01:39]
ben_vulpes plz foar not to buhlete! [01:39]
trinque I have others [01:39]
ben_vulpes cp ~/.bitcoin.bak/ [01:39]
trinque this laptop has not infinite gigs [01:39]
ben_vulpes ah mhm. [01:40]
ben_vulpes how's btcd handling r4gn4phr0k? [01:40]
trinque the who and the whatnow? [01:41]
trinque was syncing pretty quick, but I stopped and deleted for to be syncing against mircea_popescu's node [01:41]
trinque got to like 150k I think before I stopped [01:42]
ben_vulpes no no the conformal impl [01:42]
ben_vulpes i thought you were running a conformal impl somewhere [01:42]
trinque I am, how is it handling what though [01:42]
trinque you got too 1337 on me [01:42]
ben_vulpes there's a ph0rk in progress [01:42]
trinque oh! [01:42]
trinque lemme see muh logz [01:42]

decimation 950 out of the last 1000 blocks [02:32]

midnightmagic decimation: 1000 blocks is a couple percent of all work done ever on the entire blockchain since inception, and the current hashrate could rewrite the entire history up to something like august 2014 in somewhere close to the span of time that non-vote took place over, times a very small number. :( unfortunately. [02:53]
ben_vulpes oh look [02:54]
decimation this machine is braindamaged in my opinion [02:54]
ben_vulpes a midnightmagic [02:54]
decimation at any rate, it's not like you couldn't jam it by changing nversion to an arbitrary value [02:54]
ben_vulpes decimation: srsly. [02:54]
ben_vulpes magic numbers and magic thinking. [02:54]
decimation to spite, you could even pick a value between 4 and MAX_INT randomly [02:54]
ben_vulpes another value for derpfiguration. [02:54]
ben_vulpes euhue [02:55]
midnightmagic i'm just saying that it sounds like a little bit in comparison to both time, and integerial block height, but actual work-wise it a significant chunk. again, very unfortunately. [02:55]
phf ha, stator build on openbsd i386 [02:55]
ben_vulpes midnightmagic: this is a basic feature of integrals and curves. [02:55]
ben_vulpes lol 'integerial' [02:56]
decimation midnightmagic: the "amount of work" argument utterly fails to impress [02:56]
decimation also, it's probably not going to be true in a year or two as 14 nm asics fan out and become barely economic [02:57]
midnightmagic that is the inverse of what will happen as more-efficient mining equipment arrives. [02:58]
decimation also, your argument would also be true if nMajorityWindow=10000 or 100000 [02:58]
ben_vulpes decimation is ready to bet against diff increases? [03:00]
decimation I think it's likely to level out in the coming year or two, maybe longer [03:00]
ben_vulpes midnightmagic is ready to work more student exercises? [03:00]
decimation unless someone can tell me exactly how they are going to 'get efficient' [03:00]
ben_vulpes efficiency is not a prerequisite for fab runs. [03:01]
decimation no, but it is for profitability in the face of non-zero electric rates [03:01]
ben_vulpes since when has midnightmagic's employer given a shit about profitability? [03:01]
midnightmagic ben_vulpes: #trollfail. That sort of thing doesn't work on me, especially when it comes from someone like you. [03:02]
ben_vulpes lol and yet you bit [03:02]
midnightmagic ben_vulpes: You would call a bite any response. That is the fundamental nature of #trollfail. [03:03]
ben_vulpes y'ever hear the line: "don't feed the trolls"? [03:04]
midnightmagic Regardless, a 1000-block window is not unreasonable if one accepts that mining hashpower is the vote that counts. [03:04]
decimation I don't accept it. [03:04]
decimation nor does this argument hold for 1000, because the same argument can be made for 50000 [03:04]
ben_vulpes i don't accept it either. [03:05]
ben_vulpes midnightmagic: you make this mistake of letting the plants control the conversation. "what's the right magic number of blocks to signal fork acceptance?" answer: there isn't. there is only the long-term behavior of the network. [03:05]
midnightmagic Correct. I am saying your complaint about it being unreasonable is illogical by any measure of the mining work done: there *is* no other meaningful window, or measurement, of the bitcoin network without shifting to PoS or DPoS. But if you want to do that, fork bitshares. [03:06]
ben_vulpes this moronic 'acceptance-in-blockchain' algo doesn't work, because hashpower can revert and rewrite an arbitrarily-lengthed blockchain. [03:06]
midnightmagic ben_vulpes: On that at least, we agree. I agree with that: the current hashrate is as illegitimate as a vote of private keys would be in determining a softfork. What else is there? [03:07]
ben_vulpes 's just no window. [03:07]
ben_vulpes there's* just no window. [03:07]
ben_vulpes just the network. that, only that, no more, no less. [03:08]
midnightmagic Thus, backing up further, there is the legitimacy of BIP66 at all. If it is not legitimate, we have a consensus code failure every time openssl decides they want to change behaviour. [03:08]
ben_vulpes midnightmagic: art thou familiar with the 1.0.1g issue? [03:08]
decimation you are subjugating human judgement to unthinking machinery - this can never be reasonable [03:09]
ben_vulpes openssl changed behavior. bitcoin did not. [03:09]
decimation midnightmagic: who is holding a gun to your head, requiring you to update openssl? [03:10]
midnightmagic I'm familiar with the DER-encoding change they made, and I'm aware of, if not familiar with, every major bug in openssl since 2001 or so. Could I draw a line between releases that had bugs and releases that fixed them? No. Not even close. [03:10]
decimation why isn't anyone seriously attempting to extract the open-ssl code paths used by bitcoin? [03:11]
ben_vulpes bitcoind's built with openssl versions after 1.0.1g don't sync. [03:11]
ben_vulpes this, i gather, is news to you. [03:11]
ben_vulpes bitcoinds* [03:11]
midnightmagic decimation: Nobody, of course. Then we go back to static builds and what happens when an actual bug hits and the fork is so old that the fix doesn't backport? How divergent are we willing to accept? [03:11]
midnightmagic lol. No, it's not news to me. Yes, I already knew that. [03:11]
decimation midnightmagic: the cure to that problem is not forcing changes of an uncertain nature, but to gain certainty in the codebase [03:12]
decimation why wouldn't we want a static bitcoind that is correct for all time? [03:13]
ben_vulpes midnightmagic: you were probably just on the cusp of killing hitler too. [03:13]
ben_vulpes why wouldn't we want a static bitcoind that is correct for all time? << we do. midnightmagic does not. [03:15]
midnightmagic well, then we have the forking risk I mentioned above: what happens when the openssl people make a fix or the internet finds a bug in the component that we depend on? If we sit on 0.9.8 or whatever the version was before those idiots got their hands on it and started adding malicious exploits, what happens? [03:15]
decimation understand the code, make sure it doesn't happen [03:15]
decimation pretending like others are there to solve your problems seems like a poor approach [03:15]
midnightmagic ben_vulpes: You can keep guessing what I mean without actually asking me, but you're no less wrong. [03:16]
ben_vulpes decimation: no but you see we need to slurp the spitoon because if we don't something terrifying that we can't reason about won't happen! [03:16]
ben_vulpes midnightmagic: no less wrong than what now? [03:17]
midnightmagic I'm not pretending that; I'm explicitly saying, divergence implies there is no reason to even *use* openssl at that point. strip out the components, use them, skip openssl entirely, and, I guess, trust in your ability to monitor the progenitor of your codebase for bugs that *explicitly affect your consensus-critical code*. [03:17]
decimation agreed, except "consenus-critical" means "compatible with what satoshi wrote" in my book [03:18]
assbot [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 159666 @ 0.00052679 = 84.1105 BTC [+] {5} [03:18]
midnightmagic or, do what sipa did and write a secp256k1 lib because the openssl people don't give a shit they're wrecking dependencies. [03:18]
midnightmagic because, like I said, I think some people in there appear to be adding exploitable code with absurd frequency. [03:18]
decimation again, nobody is forcing anybody use a version of openssl they don't want to use. [03:18]
midnightmagic ehh. satoshi's code, bugs and all. we could also stick with bdb and accept the quirks like the old accidental fork post-leveldb. [03:20]
midnightmagic .. which appears to have been a gavin/hearn originated bug. [03:20]
ben_vulpes it's all well and good to say "strip out the components", i just don't buy that that's possible. [03:20]
decimation his code sucks, I don't deny, but it's the closest thing to a spec that we have [03:21]
decimation start there and iterate the code toward perfection [03:21]
decimation ideally, writing a damn spec first [03:21]
midnightmagic it's all a question of how much you trust your ability to make code that converges on consensus. are you so awesome you can either sit on an old openssl, or write your own replacements? are you so godlike you can write testcases for every corner-case, bugs and all? I know I'm not. Maybe you guys are. I dunno. [03:22]

But even if that weren't so, really I'm a little disappointed the wind all went out of your sails, as it were. [03:28]

ben_vulpes so we won, and you want to 3/10 troll on the topic? [03:31]

decimation if bitcoin core devs agree with what people here are writing, why don't they venture here to make their case? [03:33]
midnightmagic .. why would they do that? [03:33]
ben_vulpes moreover, if the decisions made here trickle down to "bitcoin core", why should we pursue them further? [03:33]

midnightmagic Almost like a sort of mass-ennui/retirement mentality. Tired of working for something they don't believe in anymore. [04:36]
mircea_popescu it is in point of fact better to have a static build that specifically ennumerates blocks prior to height X and then proceeds from there, than to have the present situation. [04:36]
mircea_popescu and that's 40 gb's worth of magic number. [04:37]

mircea_popescu next time they'll need some they... ahem... won't read b-a logs etc once more. [04:53]
midnightmagic Because they haven't stopped yet. Hearn's submitting pullreqs he's going to use as propaganda to push people to -XT, and Gavin's going through the bip/pullreq motions when he knows he's going to be voted down. Again. [04:54]

mircea_popescu to you. [04:58]
mircea_popescu he only wears the halo ~to you~. because you're a particular sort of inner build, and because you ate a particular diet. [04:58]
mircea_popescu your experiences and inner life are not nearly as universal as you imagine before you examine it. [04:59]
midnightmagic No, not to me. He wears the halo that makes large audiences cheer for him instead of throwing spitballs, when he says he should revoke everyone's commit access and be a dictator. [04:59]
mircea_popescu to most everyone else, gavin's just another washed up website designer with a great story from five years ago. [04:59]

mircea_popescu what happens if you import the 7 block alt-chain into the stator ? [19:01]
ascii_modem innit in there now? or am i confused [19:01]
mircea_popescu atm the situation is that block 363730 is forked. one chain, 6 blocks long, proceeds atop a v2 block. the current main chain proceeds from 363730 on v3 blocks. [19:02]

mircea_popescu how so ? [19:03]
ascii_modem we involuntarily backport a gavinism? [19:04]
mircea_popescu how's it a gavinism to begin with ? [19:04]
ascii_modem because not ours? [19:04]
mircea_popescu lemme lay out the issue here in detail, i think it's mebbe getting fudged. [19:05]
mircea_popescu so 1. it was observed that the idiots running openssl, who for historical reasons are actually wholesale pulled into bitcoin, decided to fuck up the way they do signatures, which is to say, make items signed come out in rnadom shapes. this is obviously very dangerous for bitcoin [19:05]
ascii_modem aga i recall [19:06]
mircea_popescu 2. a voluntary, user-enforced change to the protocol was proposed (iirc by petertodd) where only DER sigs are accepted anymore. [19:06]
mircea_popescu this is neither a bad idea nor in any sense avoidable. because, again, without it we'll fork daily. [19:06]
mircea_popescu it'd have been ideal to not import the satoshism in question into bitcoin, but before our time. [19:06]
mircea_popescu 3. in order to avoid the situation that happened tonight, a supposed "voting" mechanism was deployed where people switched an irrelevant byte in the blocks they mined, to go from 2 to 3, to indicate they are ready and willing to follow the new rules. [19:07]
mircea_popescu this, again, has nothing to do with us. if tomorrow miners decide as a social game to never communicate any blocks they find that hash to odd, it's THEIR problem [19:07]
ascii_modem where were the daily forks b/w january (?) and now ? [19:08]
mircea_popescu and we'll never see an odd hash block for as long as they keep at it. [19:08]
mircea_popescu lemme finish [19:08]
mircea_popescu 4. the people who voted did so as all people voting ever do : blankly, mouth only. then, someone mined a v2 block on top of a v3 block (which to them look identical) and the supposed 95% majority that promised by that vote to distinguish failed to distinguish. well, half of them or so. the other half distinguished [19:09]
mircea_popescu this utterly proves that a) the BIP system provides no benefit and should be disused ; b) the peoiple involved with all this nonsense should be muted ; c) voting does not work. nothing here is novel. [19:09]
mircea_popescu none of this in any way invalidates anything about the new chain, nor is it a point of concern that i can distinguish [19:10]
mircea_popescu done., [19:10]
ascii_modem got plan? [19:11]
mircea_popescu ascii_modem where were the daily forks b/w january (?) and now ? << costs a little to make one, nobody cared enough. (also lots of manual intervention and general ducttaping at the miner and relayer level - bitcoin is quickly becoming an excellent makework tool, keeping idiots both employed and in a delusion of importance) [19:11]

mircea_popescu the only problem is that the clients ain't reorging properly, which needs looking into/ [19:12]
mircea_popescu which is why i said, perfect time to test our tools. [19:13]
ascii_modem i saw no signs of blocks happening at all [19:13]
mircea_popescu specifically, what happens if you put the new chain into a node [19:13]
mircea_popescu well you're only looking at mine, and mine's not relaying. [19:14]
ascii_modem ah [19:14]
mircea_popescu which it's how it's made to work, better fail than be stupid. [19:14]
ascii_modem gonna plug in the one on dulap when i get home [19:14]

mircea_popescu gotta make the fambly unit work. [19:27]
ascii_modem right now we got an anthill in the living room [19:28]
mircea_popescu and you don't even know about the used condoms behind the bed headboard [19:28]
ascii_modem there are different schools of thought re how to furnish a room [19:28]
punkman I think we need to put a lot more comments on the code, kinda clunky to do through patches to ML though [19:28]
ascii_modem but none include anthill [19:28]

ascii_modem so far i'm not sure any of you apprehend just what a steaming turd the thing is [19:31]
punkman in other news, ATMs getting ddos'd even at 1am. rejects transaction, spits out card, and you gotta start over. perhaps intentional rate-limiting. [19:31]
ascii_modem where? [19:32]
mircea_popescu he's in greece. [19:32]
mircea_popescu anyway, the main sufferance in my head atm is that reading the chinese stuff (in translation) clarifies in my head an objection that may well be a second major flaw to the protocol, after the "relay nodes gotta do it for the glory" : its altogether unclear a purely financial incentive is the correct solution for miners. [19:32]
ascii_modem ah! [19:32]
ascii_modem ^^^^ [19:32]
mircea_popescu specifically : atm there is an arbitrage open, where you can either make money by "brute forcing" it ie hashing, [19:32]
mircea_popescu or else by fucking up other people's miners. i ordered a listing of "all the ways you could exploit a miner with crafted comms for a hash advantage" [19:33]
mircea_popescu the process hasn't returned yet, the list is already hundreds of entries long [19:33]
mircea_popescu most only apply to specific implementationms etc, but! fuck me... [19:33]
ascii_modem this is the exam thread all over again [19:33]
mircea_popescu it pays more as a pool operator to be into skulldugery than into running your pool [19:33]
ascii_modem where 'exams optimize for examsmanship' [19:34]
mircea_popescu ipso facto "running pool" ===== "nefariousness in layers" [19:34]
mircea_popescu sure, people don't do it yet. mostly because lazy, 2nd mostly because stupid, 3rd mostly because it's not even txn time yet. [19:34]
mircea_popescu but when that begins all this may fucking collapse under the weight of... if money's the incentive to mine mining will not exactly allign with "securing the network" [19:35]
mircea_popescu (txn time = when most miner revenue comes from block txn) [19:35]

pete_dushenski ^my modest post-mortem, perhaps early... [19:36]
mircea_popescu ascii_modem more specifically put : currently everyone is mining with a "god given" known tx of 25 btc + whatever they pick off the ground. [19:36]
mircea_popescu tomorrow, they will not KNOW immediately through act of god where that 25 btc comes from [19:37]
ascii_modem 12.5... [19:37]
mircea_popescu atm 99.x% of income comes through this immediate, sent-from-heaven-above channel [19:38]
mircea_popescu if as much as 66% comes that way and the other 33% has to be found out about... o baby. [19:38]
mircea_popescu hard to convey what the changes in dynamic such a thing brings. [19:38]
ascii_modem also touches on the mempool thread [19:39]
mircea_popescu really the % of income "just known" vs "information acquired" is the proper measure. [19:39]
mircea_popescu atm the split is .999 - .001 or somesuch. this will change monotoniucall;y the other way [19:39]
ascii_modem whole thing is mostly duct tape by weight [19:39]
punkman "A blockchain that does not validate under 0.5.3 is an altcoin blockchain." << both forks were valid in 0.5.3, right? [19:41]
ascii_modem so far there is no structure remotely enough to take up the weight if the duct tape is ripped out [19:41]
mircea_popescu punkman right. hence all the "We don't give a shit" verbiage here. [19:41]
mircea_popescu anyway, i don't envisage as much as an inkling of a solution. just more stuff to worry about. [19:43]
ascii_modem one one hand, i don't give a shit, yes. on the other, a human turd pressed a button, my nodes are halted, and there is no guarantee that they don't have a bottomless magazine of these [19:43]
mircea_popescu but this situation is why im so cold on your ada idea. sure, you go put all the god damned effort into writing a fully correct, fully specified implementation oif an... broken idea. [19:43]

mircea_popescu until we know exactly wtf to do about relayers, about miners now, there is no point. the prototype's still prototypin'. [19:44]
mircea_popescu dude, how about you actually get some data first omfg. [19:44]
mircea_popescu yea, i get it, may mean that this makes your fate be to muddle in the dirt, piling up data for your kid, who maybe might do it. [19:44]
mircea_popescu fuck you, your grandparents were farmers. it's how this fucking world works. [19:45]
ascii_modem would really help to have a fucking reasonable platform for this [19:45]
mircea_popescu yes. it would really help. [19:45]
ascii_modem that means not hairball [19:45]
mircea_popescu no, i know. [19:45]
ascii_modem actually ~my~ grandparents were approx. what i am now, l0l [19:47]
ascii_modem the male ones at least [19:47]
ascii_modem but farming is tempting, yes [19:48]

mircea_popescu there's no reason to expect etc etc. [19:53]
mircea_popescu wait until you try to debug plants << he has a point there. tho in fairness iirc alf debugged mice at some point. [19:54]
* mircea_popescu is mildly impressed at alf's lineage in any case. my grandparents were teachers and whatnot, but great-grandparents deifnitely farmers. [19:56]
punkman I get very frustrated at things like "o hey we've sprayed 12 different solutions at it and the damn lemon tree still has fungus" [19:56]
mircea_popescu not really *that* far off [19:56]
mircea_popescu punkman i had problems with, "artichoke does so well here, it actually STAYED GREEN THROUGH WINTER, suppoirting an inch of snow on its upturned broad leaves. meanwhile, magnolia sapplings grow < 1inch per year and will never flower" [19:57]
mircea_popescu the town was fully of blooming magnolias and i never saw a single artichoke plant outside of my garden [19:58]
punkman for a short time I believed in the mythical farmer that actually knows what he's doing. But after watching the experts debug these things, my only conclusion is they sometimes get lucky and that's the best I could hope for. [20:00]
punkman maybe they got better corn science over in the US, dunno. [20:01]

mircea_popescu this is exactly the sortt of situation the entire deterministic thing he was crowing about is meant for. [20:10]
mircea_popescu which, in terms of parachutes.. .you gotta admit... perfect timing [20:10]

mircea_popescu because yes, we're fucktarded enough to not notice what's proposed here is a closed f2pool - antpool loop. they're over there in their own parallel universe. [21:05]

mircea_popescu "Note that the roughly 50% of the network that was SPV mining had explicitly indicated that they would enforce the BIP66 rules. By not doing so, several large miners have lost over $50,000 dollars worth of mining income so far." [21:10]
mircea_popescu leaving aside the inept spin they published, why the fuck are we pricing things in dollars. [21:10]

* ascii_modem ( has joined #bitcoin-assets [21:25]
mircea_popescu this horrible trampling of rightrs and liberties resulted in a romania with absolutely no bums, and moreover, in the anedcodtic situation where i picked up a cab from the train station [21:25]
mircea_popescu and the cab driver was looking at this bum laying down [21:25]
mircea_popescu and he told me that he was an orphan, and that he got put by the commieus through the above grinder, and now he has a family and owns his car. [21:26]

mircea_popescu ascii_modem you're not going to redefine terms of art now, are you ? [21:29]
ascii_modem iirc classic sense ? [21:29]
mircea_popescu capital goods produce value. all there is to them. [21:29]
ascii_modem i.e. my pants arent capital [21:29]
mircea_popescu pogo is not your pants. [21:30]
mircea_popescu as much as running your own server is controlling a capital good. not a very significant one, but that's a quantitative discussion [21:30]
mircea_popescu arguably intelligence is similarly of a capital good, and you have enough control of it to, for instance, contribute here. other people do not have this luxury - for instance because they agreed some employer owns it all. [21:31]
mircea_popescu so... no. [21:31]
ascii_modem sorta like gravity. yes, sufficiently far from solar system, anyone can become a 'stellar body' if you shove him out airlock [21:31]
mircea_popescu i thought you reasoned in categories. [21:31]
ascii_modem aha [21:32]
mircea_popescu what's this "quantity is the determinator of quality" approach then ? [21:32]
ascii_modem original thread was re 'who is wageslave and who - capitalist' [21:32]
mircea_popescu see ag3nt_zero, syllogism. reductio ad absurdum. present the op with a dilemma, so he can either explain what was misunderstood or correct what he misunderstood [21:32]
mircea_popescu well sure, original thread. [21:33]
mircea_popescu << they aren't always performing. most of them can't perform worth a shit. nevertheless, the sexual exploitation of women is an important element of mental health, including for the women in question, for women in general, for men in general... [21:34]

mircea_popescu so i fully expect this to get "regulated". [21:35]
ascii_modem pogo & the other junk is in different category than 'capital proper' in my mind because none of this stuff 'pays for itself' [21:37]
ascii_modem as, e.g., fisherman's boat does [21:37]
mircea_popescu << to hear him say it, he's like that beat up chimp in the experiments [21:37]

ascii_modem box [21:40]
mircea_popescu comes out of nsa accts tho. eventually. [21:40]
ascii_modem aha [21:40]
ascii_modem so not clear how 'pays for self' [21:40]
mircea_popescu thus ? [21:40]
ascii_modem rather, running on battery like other things [21:41]
mircea_popescu take the other side. i approved expenditure of ~7.5 btc on advertising as ceo of ; and of ~.25 (unreported, maybe next month i remember to put it in) on s.nsa. [21:41]
mircea_popescu the roi for the first was 0, the roi for the 2nd not 0. [21:42]
mircea_popescu how then, not "pay for self" ? [21:42]
ascii_modem in other nyuz, i'm sitting under the megaphallus in washington, and blinking eye of sauron [21:44]

mircea_popescu (truth!) [21:56]

mircea_popescu i don't touch type either, not usually. [21:56]
williamdunne How comes? [21:57]
ascii_modem now i dont look at the buttonz, no [21:57]
mircea_popescu touch typing is good if you're going to do straight typing for mintues at a time. i normally do not. i suppose you do not either, need a mouse, a this, a buffer, a that etc. [21:57]
mircea_popescu most of the benefit of touch typing comes from not moving your "frame" above the kbd. [21:57]
mircea_popescu hands on/hands off touch typing is nonsense. [21:58]
