davout so basically you can actually use high leverage, except it doesn't quite work so well when you win, because it doesn't work very well when you lose [10:48]

mircea_popescu something else other than the uni-money pump can't be sustained anymore ? why ? [15:16]

[15:17]
mircea_popescu cuz yeah, the socialists here more or less ready to firebomb the socialists from there. [15:17]
mircea_popescu asciilifeform much like soviet economy endgame, stuff isn't being replaced. simply removed. [15:17]
asciilifeform well yeah, but the ~order~ of removal is peculiar. [15:18]
asciilifeform most of the participants in the college racket are innocent of mathematics as it is. [15:18]
mircea_popescu why ? currently the harvard/mit/etc hedge funds masquerading as universities are pretty much the largest problem on fed's map. [15:18]
mircea_popescu oh, this isn't about math. this is about stem. stem costs TURKEY dollars. [15:19]
mircea_popescu the "studies" whores cost paper dollars. [15:19]
PeterL isn't the "m" in "stem" math? [15:19]
asciilifeform it used to ~cost~ when an engineering graduate expected to build bridges, pipelines. [15:20]
asciilifeform but not now. [15:20]
mircea_popescu you can replace the ~100 trn worth ivy league & friends that do a 10-20 bn spending on actual hardware each year and otherwise shuffle paper on the exchanges with a new-and-improved thing worth ~1-2 bn that spends 50 bucks on mcdonalsa a year. [15:20]
asciilifeform now he only expects, reasonably, to derp in cad and crap out 'intellectual property!111' [15:20]
asciilifeform he costs same as 'womenz studies' chick. [15:20]
mircea_popescu that's 100 trn in air bubble to breathe while the dod keeps losing trucks nominally full of trucks that were fully loaded with trucks. [15:21]
mircea_popescu asciilifeform afaik this isn't true. [15:21]
mircea_popescu specifically : while the universities may well be pushing costs down as you describe, they're sure as fuck noty passing the savings up the chain to comecon. [15:21]
mircea_popescu notably enough : romania told the soviets to shut it, and as a result the policy was updated to allow people (ie, romania) to do w/e it pleases. [15:22]
mircea_popescu curious if any of the loser satellites will succeed, or for that matter try, something similar. [15:22]

mircea_popescu asciilifeform it looks like, mit still is the hedge fund it was, whether it spends x on wage and y on fixed/capital goods or just x/2 on wage and epsilon on f/c [15:24]
mircea_popescu the savings show in mit's bottom line, not in the fed's. [15:24]
asciilifeform it's a usg crown hedgefund. in what sense does it not serve hitler ? [15:24]
mircea_popescu it is NOT a usg crown hedgefund anymore than romania was a soviet property. [15:24]
asciilifeform dunno about that, good chunk of mit income is direct usg grantolade [15:25]
mircea_popescu it has its own head. and this is a serious problem for the pretense of central planning, because they effectively suck down resources. [15:25]

asciilifeform the sultan thing ? [15:29]
asciilifeform not entirely [15:29]
mircea_popescu nah, the thing with money flow. [15:29]
asciilifeform the argument is clear but i don't see how the wunderwaffen payola is necessarily 'turkeydollar' [15:30]
asciilifeform so an engineer is paid 200k-usd. he spends it in same place as the lit major. [15:30]

asciilifeform jurov: beyond 'throw out the cheapo crapola', it is not relay's place to resolve the conflict. [17:13]
mircea_popescu certainly ANY relay that currently drops on the floor a VALIDLY SIGNED txn is broken. no possible argument here. [17:13]
mircea_popescu the job of relaying is - to relay. [17:13]
asciilifeform well, validly-signed but inputs-already-spent-and-this-is-in-a-block is noise. [17:14]
jurov so, i'll spend 1 btc million times with 0.1 fee, feed it to you and you'll be like "not my problem"? [17:14]
mircea_popescu the overarching design principle being that ALL the information deciding the treatment of a txn MUST BE ~COMPLETELY~ in the txn in question. [17:14]
mircea_popescu you may NOT have state. [17:14]
asciilifeform mircea_popescu: we have a permitted state - it is called the blockchain. [17:14]
asciilifeform as in, the actual blocks. [17:14]

jurov so far, yes [17:20]
asciilifeform verily this is lame. [17:21]
jurov letting memory to fill with turds isn't lame? [17:22]
jurov both are. [17:22]
asciilifeform it isn't a turd if it is valid. [17:23]
asciilifeform (well, it can be, if it falls below the specified fee/byte mark) [17:24]
jurov your memory together for all the conficted txs falls below the specified fee/byte mark, you can admit at least this is true [17:27]
asciilifeform jurov: the logical thing to do would be to resolve all conflicts by maximizing fee. [17:28]
asciilifeform the only logical thing. [17:28]
asciilifeform but 'seen first is The One' is asinine. [17:28]
jurov but ALL the conflicts have same $maxint fee [17:28]
jurov YES, first one, si asinine, lit's move on [17:28]
jurov i don't argue to keep current algo! [17:29]
jurov i just am asking ahy you give your memory so cheaply? [17:29]
asciilifeform the original thread was re: how the current protocol, which allows a tx to refer to unconfirmed inputs, is retarded. [17:30]
jurov and you reacted by putting forward no less retarded notion to keep everythign that has inputs in block [17:30]
asciilifeform while maximizing summed fee, aha [17:30]
asciilifeform what's the problem with that ? [17:31]
asciilifeform and yes, you sum over the non-conflicting tx. [17:31]
jurov but then you have to check for conflicts! [17:31]
trinque lol [17:32]

asciilifeform you check ~when expelling~ from the pool [17:32]
mircea_popescu asciilifeform> but 'seen first is The One' is asinine. << srsly. [17:32]
jurov either there's a state machine that considers other txen in mempool, or no conflict resolution, there's no third way [17:33]
mircea_popescu no conflict resolution. [17:33]
mircea_popescu it is not a relayer job. [17:33]

mircea_popescu jurov> no conflict resolution = free memory for attacker << you drop stuff under minfee. [17:40]

jurov after several months of screaming STUPIDITY and listing NAT.ROUTERS and whatnot [17:44]
mircea_popescu well, for practicing speech if nothing else. [17:44]
mircea_popescu what do you think this is in reference to ? [17:44]
jurov i explained why NAT is stupid, like one way telephone that only accepts calls, you laughed at me and told you wouldn't want any other [17:45]
jurov *that only allows outgoing calls [17:45]
jurov then we had dicsussion where I was unable to explain why addresses aren't spent, but outputs are, same reult [17:46]
mircea_popescu specifically : " after several months of screaming STUPIDITY and listing NAT.ROUTERS and whatnot" << you propose i did what ? [17:47]
jurov why did you list NAT.ROUTERS? [17:47]
jurov "list" [17:47]
mircea_popescu i have no fucking idea, it's a random string. it certainly didn't have some sort of intention, and i was certainly not thinking of you. [17:48]
mircea_popescu i think i had moneys-something in there for a while also, or whatever. [17:48]
mircea_popescu but this aside. so you said nat routers are stupid and i said i'm happy with them and this evnetually means i came to terms to what, using the jurov two way router ? or what ? [17:48]

mircea_popescu in all cases when what you're trying to explain makes no sense or generally ? [17:50]
jurov in many cases. then alf or someone other explains again and you get it [17:50]
mircea_popescu must be frustrating. well, generally a good starting point of understanding a problem is, making a list of observed cases. [17:52]
mircea_popescu but the important part there is making the complete list, like with any other scientific approach. [17:52]
jurov yes this needs some examples and i don't have it [17:52]
mircea_popescu in the interim, [17:52]
assbot ... ( ) [17:52]
mircea_popescu asciilifeform i suppose his idea is, in plainer english, that in principle fee is no deterrent, because if he makes 1mn txn that are all valid but spend the same inputs, only one can be eventgually mined and so he can create as many txn as he wants for you to relay and only pay the fee once, eventually. whereas only keeping the first seen one protects from this. [17:58]

mircea_popescu war is the thing that happens when idiots fucked up the design. [18:15]
asciilifeform aha. [18:15]
mircea_popescu anyway, back to the issue. having nodes discard dupes is in principle stupid ; having nodes discard dupes on a first-seen basis is entirely warantless ; trying to run an implementation of this design will run into problems. [18:16]
asciilifeform my point was, minertards won't go willingly into the good night. [18:16]
mircea_popescu the problem ~MAY~ be that bitcoin transactions are dupe-able in the first place, for instance. [18:17]
mircea_popescu which is why bitcoin protocol discussions are so complex, and the whole thing so hard : because omfg, the complexity. you don't even rightly know where the problem comes from really, in the rat's nest. [18:17]

asciilifeform what's this mean [18:19]
mircea_popescu yes, what ? [18:19]
mircea_popescu for instance (and plox, before we run off with it - example only!) : if every tx was defined as "only 1 input - only 1 output" and if you wanted to make a larger payment youy'd have to make MULTIPLE txn, then a) the protocol would actually make a lot more sense, atomicity-wise and b) you wouldn't have the problems jurov describes. because pay x to y with fee z would exist EXACTLY one way. [18:20]
asciilifeform bitstrings are 'dupable' by nature, bitcoin's whole purpose is to hack around this, to the extent physically possible, like a ship is a hack around the sea [18:20]
mircea_popescu they don't have to be. [18:20]

danielpbarron this having a blog thing is pretty sweet; wish I started it sooner! I got a finished article in the hopper, and a stub still to be fleshed out. [21:50]
danielpbarron started with the impulse to post something on twatter, pasted it into a draft instead, and expanded from there. [21:51]
shinohai I am trying your drink recipe tonight danielpbarron I think I got everything I needed. [21:53]

* danielpbarron is now trying his first attempt at a sort-of cantarina (sort-of because apparently it's supposed to have club soda, although I'm not sure if that's a requirement, or if a side-effect of most bars not having fresh grapefruit and use a grapefruit flavored soda instead) [23:18]
danielpbarron and to my surprise the quarter orange i decided to go with is not overpowered by the whole grapefruit or the half lime/lemon [23:19]
danielpbarron heh, also tonight i learned that you do not want to squeeze a kiwi, but I have not yet ruled out muddling [23:20]
shinohai lol [23:26]
