benkay in case your curious what kind of work i do, client number one just cut over and emerged from embargo [00:31]
benkay you're [00:31]
benkay [00:31]
ThickAsThieves you build carts? [00:31]
dub you fuck plants? [00:32]
truffles you're curious? [00:32]
ThickAsThieves well i'm vegan at least [00:32]
truffles oh no [00:32]
benkay we dragged the frontend kicking and screaming into 2014, dragged an ancient django application from 1.2 to 1.4, delivered myriad performance improvements totalling in excess of 10x across the whole stack, and implemented distributed work queues to decrease the risk of large data processing jobs [00:32]
ThickAsThieves it looks nice [00:33]
mike_c why 1.4 instead of 1.6? [00:33]
ThickAsThieves i wouldnt even feel scammed if i sent them money [00:33]
ThickAsThieves hmm it's not even a cart [00:34]
benkay the next development iteration is going to focus on putting a 'buy' button next to each plant, redesigning the remaining pages that look like they're from 2006, taking people's money when they do click buy and turning into a plant on their doorstep, using the 56+ nurseries the site owner already has relationships with for distributed development [00:34]
ThickAsThieves oops [00:34]
ThickAsThieves ah [00:34]
* bgupta_ ( has joined #bitcoin-assets [00:34]
KRS-One fuck plants, they are boring. [00:34]
benkay distributed fulfillment [00:34]
mike_c boring is good. no scooping poop. [00:35]
truffles plants take work man [00:35]
Duffer1 infinite scroll would be nice [00:35]
benkay 1.4 was necessary for some particular features, i forget what precisely. chose to not go all the way to 1.6 to mitigate risk. [00:35]
benkay oh yeah, did i mention the stack automation and rearchitecture? [00:35]
Duffer1 it's a great looking sight though, i love the homepage [00:36]
benkay there was enough risk in this project that 1.6 made me uncomfortable and i stopped the upgrade at the release that bought us the features we needed. [00:36]
truffles they should have a subcategory "exotic plants" [00:36]
benkay thanks! the owner did the wires and we implemented it. [00:36]
* bgupta has quit (Ping timeout: 245 seconds) [00:36]

benkay anyways, we have availability for other projects. [00:36]
mike_c i upgraded to 1.6 recently without many bumps. but i think i went from 1.4, so less risk [00:36]

ThickAsThieves benkay, have you ever done anything in online education software [00:39]
mike_c bitcointalk is unusable. if only they had thousands of btc to improve the site with. [00:39]
benkay i've played with plenty. [00:40]
benkay is there something specific to the online education software domain that's not applicable to general webappery? [00:40]
ThickAsThieves nope [00:40]
benkay what are you curious about? [00:41]
ThickAsThieves just having a bad run with the team on it [00:41]
ThickAsThieves and the two before that [00:41]
benkay ouch [00:41]
benkay what's the stack? [00:41]
ThickAsThieves i'm pretty far removed from it now [00:41]

benkay phpbrekla's your man for that [00:42]
ThickAsThieves he'd probly cry at this code [00:43]
dub I heard tux might be in the market [00:43]
benkay company line on php is "we're only interested in the project if the client is prepared to make a large investment in moving away from php" [00:43]
benkay that said we can always manage a project and assemble a team for the right price. [00:43]
benkay there is a php fee tho :( [00:43]
ThickAsThieves the investment, in my eyes, would be in a team that can be counted on and is proficient [00:44]
ThickAsThieves the PHP is incidental [00:44]
pankkake I used to be in a php shop, but we did pass twice on a project that was simply… impossible to comprehend [00:44]
ThickAsThieves of course cost determines all in the end [00:44]
ThickAsThieves they are finally installing the new version of the software onto a live server this week [00:45]
ThickAsThieves after like 18mos [00:45]
benkay ka yikes [00:45]
benkay first thing we typically do is set up infrastructure, CI and low-friction deploys. [00:45]

ThickAsThieves benkay i was considering a business path of: 1. Implement and use it with this school, work out bugs, add anything obviously needed 2. Approach several clients in other training fields (Hazardous Goods Shipping for example) and offer hosted solutions, making the software cater to more industries 3. Convert to SaaS DIY Training Lesson Builder [00:49]
ThickAsThieves it's been a while since i looked into possible competition though [00:50]
benkay sounds like a great model [00:50]
benkay eh i wouldn't worry about competition. instead, focus on landing clients, making them happy and taking their money. [00:50]

herbijudlestoids to me it looks like they have been clearing the smaller transactions [03:33]
herbijudlestoids that is why the avg withdrawal transaction amount is going down [03:33]
sypher_ herbijudlestoids, i'm just a noob so i may have completely wrong thoughts. [03:34]
sypher_ I'm thinking that big ones are playing to make it go down so they can buy in cheaper, having it rebound later [03:35]
herbijudlestoids well they can already buy it on bitstamp or other exchanges for significantly cheaper than the mtgox price [03:35]
sypher_ not talking mtgox [03:35]
sypher_ looking at btce and bitstamp [03:36]
herbijudlestoids err no, i meant opinions on the withdrawal transactoins...nevermind [03:36]

* moneycat has quit (Remote host closed the connection) [03:37]
sypher_ btce, big sell orders that aren't getting fulfilled, seems to me that many are panic selling under those and thats driving it down quite a bit [03:38]
* moneycat (~moneycat@ has joined #bitcoin-assets [03:38]
sypher_ then the big sell order gets cancelled and put at a lower price, but not getting fulfilled... doing like that since 165 earlier. [03:39]
sypher_ 765 sorry. [03:39]
herbijudlestoids ignore the orders in the book [03:39]
herbijudlestoids real volume hits the market directly [03:39]
nubbins` fun fact, if you have btc or usd in mtgox, you're part of the problem! :D [03:39]
* Enky (~enky@ has joined #bitcoin-assets [03:40]
sypher_ glad i don't have them then :-) just bought in at 162 on btce, now I'm in almost panic selling mode. :D [03:40]

sypher_ lol, why is that nubbins` ? [03:42]
nubbins` obvious answer is correct one ;D [03:42]
sypher_ haha. :) [03:42]
herbijudlestoids the ones clearing transactions successfully, at high volume and with no regulatory issues [03:42]
herbijudlestoids check the bid/ask spread to see which has the narrowest and most liquid spread [03:42]
sypher_ seems like naming them is out of the etiquette here, sorry for the question, didn't know [03:43]
sypher_ will do [03:43]

herbijudlestoids its not out of etiquette, i dunno for sure so im not gonna name a name [03:43]
Duffer1 the point was there aren't any to name hehe [03:43]
nubbins` implication is that there aren't good exchanges, just varying degrees of shitty [03:43]
herbijudlestoids like i said, you can verify quantitatively by analysis of the bdi/ask spread [03:43]
sypher_ ah, got you guys, thanks for the hand holding [03:44]
herbijudlestoids on mtgox right now the spread is $5, bitfinex $0 bitstamp $2, btc $1 and icbit $4 [03:45]
herbijudlestoids so i would just discard mtgox and icbit for analysis, concentrate on the liquidity of the spread for bitfinex and bitstamp [03:45]
herbijudlestoids err s/btc/btce [03:45]
sypher_ why excluding btce? [03:45]
sypher_ i mean, why only bitfinex and bistamp, not btce? [03:46]

herbijudlestoids i did include btce sorry, there was a typo [03:46]

punkman1 why do you think physical coins are interesting? [03:57]
herbijudlestoids not so much physical coins as metal (i.e. fireproof) cold storage [03:57]
herbijudlestoids i think its interesting because its a necessary dimension for all who might want to save bitcoins securely for a long duration [03:58]

punkman1 sure [03:59]
herbijudlestoids sypher_: if you print it, ink fades, paper burns, etc [03:59]
herbijudlestoids punkman1: well lets say i put 1,000 BTC into a USB key and encrypt it securely etc and then my house burns down [03:59]

herbijudlestoids what price did you want to buy at? [05:11]
sypher_ 722 would be my target [05:12]
herbijudlestoids why not do a options spread on MPex? short the 722 puts [05:13]
herbijudlestoids and long whatever appropriately derisks you [05:13]
herbijudlestoids price goes to 722 and you get exercised, if not collect premium [05:14]
assbot [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 9800 @ 0.00086838 = 8.5101 BTC [+] {2} [05:14]
sypher_ you're way over my understanding grade. I'm at the 'buy low; sell high' phase; which i could translate in 'i'm an idiot'. :-) [05:16]
herbijudlestoids options give you the right but not the obligation to long/short the underlying asset at a given strike price and date ...e.g the option to long BTCUSD at 1000 regardless of the price as of Jan 2014 [05:17]
assbot [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 7400 @ 0.00086849 = 6.4268 BTC [+] [05:18]
herbijudlestoids option to long is a call, option to short is a put. if you sell a put, youre selling the right for someone to short at a given price [05:18]
herbijudlestoids so you sell someone the contract which gives them the right to short BTCUSD at 722. they will never exercise this contract unless the price is <= 722 [05:18]
KRS-One heh thanks nubbins` [05:19]
nubbins` :D [05:19]
KRS-One oops [05:19]
herbijudlestoids if the contract expires or the price doesnt go below 722, you get to keep the "premium", the cost of the contract you sold [05:19]
herbijudlestoids if it does, then they exercise and short BTCUSD at 722, leaving you long BTCUSD at 722 [05:19]
* jMyles ( has joined #bitcoin-assets [05:19]
herbijudlestoids i dun know if MPEX supports naked short the contracts, looks like they only allow you to do what they call a SPLIT order, otherwise known as an options spread, so you short the 722 puts and long some distant strike call, like 1000 calls. [05:20]
* benkay ( has joined #bitcoin-assets [05:21]
nubbins` sorry for the stupid question, but i'm exceptionally thick with this sort of thing [05:21]
nubbins` that orgy of puts that was purchased the other day [05:21]
nubbins` purchaser is expecting btc to fall below ~500 or whatever it was? [05:21]
herbijudlestoids its impossible to tell really [05:22]
herbijudlestoids they could be insuring long contracts on another exchange or other options [05:22]
herbijudlestoids maybe they hold 1000BTC on bitstamp and want to insure against the price going below 500 [05:22]
nubbins` slightly different question, purchaser profits if btc falls below 500? [05:22]
herbijudlestoids depends entirely on implied vol [05:23]
nubbins` just based on those actions [05:23]
herbijudlestoids if the price goes to 500 but IV when puts were purchased was at 50% and goes down to 20% then the puts might still be worthless [05:23]
benkay herbijudlestoids: no naked shorts on MPEx. [05:23]
herbijudlestoids value of option includes delta, theta, vega etc [05:23]
sypher_ herbijudlestoids, thanks for the explanation, I'm trying to get my head around it [05:24]
herbijudlestoids nubbins`: buying puts tends to be more of a call on IV than anything else...term structure also plays a part in profit, take a look at the NYSE listed VXX ETF versus VIX for an example of what term structure being in contango can do to a rolling IV long [05:25]
dexX7 huh wasn't it the other way around aka. this guy sold puts? [05:25]
* nubbins` throws up hands [05:25]
herbijudlestoids well, someone obviously sold the puts to the buyer [05:25]
nubbins` D: [05:25]
herbijudlestoids if there is no naked puts then they must have been written against something [05:25]
dexX7 the guyer was mpex/oe? [05:25]
herbijudlestoids i doubt its possible to know [05:26]
nubbins` afaik mpoe uses bond deposits to back options [05:26]
nubbins` although i'm barely at the level of understanding what i just said [05:26]
herbijudlestoids no i think youre correct, but i dont know anything about it specifically [05:27]
dexX7 [05:27]
ozbot #bitcoin-assets log [05:27]
herbijudlestoids yea [05:27]
dexX7 soo.. if i understand correctly, when the price goes up, this guy wins, right? [05:28]
dexX7 just to be sure hehe [05:28]
nubbins` no idea anymore [05:29]
herbijudlestoids so the trader is shorting BTCUSD 500 puts [05:29]
herbijudlestoids the trade is a bet on IV being high and leveling off or going down, and that they wont get exercised (i.e. the price wont go below 500) [05:29]

* ericmuyser ( has joined #bitcoin-assets [05:30]
herbijudlestoids if BTCUSD goes to 1200 in 1s then IV will go up and the value of the puts will increase commensurately...when puts are fare OTM (out of the money) then their intrinsic value is mostly comprised of IV [05:30]

nubbins` i'm a tall man :D [05:33]
herbijudlestoids there is no set in stone method to calculate the value of an option. there is the black scholes model which has its proponents and detractors. regardless of which model you use, there is a bunch of standard inputs called the greeks [05:33]
nubbins` sure [05:33]
* kyle_torpey has quit (Quit: Leaving) [05:34]

* koin3d (3246306d@gateway/web/freenode/ip. has joined #bitcoin-assets [05:34]

* truffles ( has joined #bitcoin-assets [05:35]
herbijudlestoids the market price of the options "imply" what the market is considering the value of those greeks will be at settlement [05:35]
nubbins` the greeks are seismographs, for lack of a better analogy, correct? [05:36]
herbijudlestoids does that make sense? the market price of any given option might be very far away from what your model reckons it should be [05:36]
assbot [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 10050 @ 0.00086849 = 8.7283 BTC [+] [05:36]
nubbins` yes, sure [05:36]
herbijudlestoids so the market is implying, forecasting, trying to get the best price for what they think the options are worth [05:36]
herbijudlestoids the forecast isnt just for where the price of BTCUSD will be relativeto $2000 in a years time [05:37]
herbijudlestoids its also forecasting vega, delta etc [05:37]
herbijudlestoids some of the greeks are numeric values that you can simply calculate, like theta, which is the time value of the option. [05:37]
herbijudlestoids depending how far ITM/OTM (in the money or out of the money) the option is depends on what the market price of the option actually consists of [05:38]
herbijudlestoids for example, if the option is far OTM (e.g. the price of BTCUSD is $1 and the call is for $2000) then the value of the option will consist mostly of vega and theta (which is decaying as time goes on) [05:38]
* CryptFox has quit (Quit: Leaving) [05:39]

nubbins` what one is to do is to suggest that the head gets cut off it before it gets out of hand [18:12]

mircea_popescu yaya, "substance subculture". it's all aspiring to be picked up by the book people like burroughs. [18:34]

nubbins` i don't even think burroughs aspired that much, guy was a miserable sack of shit [18:34]

mircea_popescu just a different flavour of emo. [18:35]

mircea_popescu of course it's not explicable, dude. if I put 500 rems or 18 tesla through my cpu the errorlog won't show anything "Explicable" [18:35]

nubbins` or, really, the difference between the people who did shit and the people who want to [18:36]
mircea_popescu nubbins` i'm saying that the interest in otherwise uninteresting subject matter is driven by otherwise underemployed, bored and inept kids. [18:36]

mircea_popescu ow fuck me. there is no lesson [18:46]
nubbins` ^ that's the lesson [18:46]
mircea_popescu incredible what a broken fucking tool the mind is. [18:46]
nubbins` on that we can agree [18:46]
nubbins` herbijudlestoids: well, it's just as easy to have a bunch of fun than to learn something [18:47]
mircea_popescu romanian makes the distinction between fun and diversion [18:47]
mircea_popescu in that it calls both "diversion" [18:47]
mircea_popescu i think it actually serves better than calling both "fun" [18:47]
nubbins` just because you're in your desk, in school, doesn't mean you're doing math problems instead of doodling monsters [18:47]
nubbins` just because you can no longer distinguish the border between your mind and the outside world doesn't mean you're having an epiphany [18:48]
nubbins` but, y'know, some kids actually do the math, and are sort of confused when someone tells them "school is just for horsing around anyway" [18:49]
herbijudlestoids mircea_popescu: i learned about many personal flaws and managed to correct some "in flatland", permanently. other flaws, still there [18:49]
nubbins` mircea_popescu: well sure, lots of diversions aren't particularly fun :D [18:49]

mircea_popescu i wonder how many people realise that when they hash scrypt they hash socialism. [20:59]
ThickAsThieves are sha256 altcoins not common? [20:59]
pLambert yes? [21:00]
asciilifeform every altcoin is really an attempt to 'refight the war' [21:00]
chipug what alts *are* sha265? i don't know any [21:00]
ThickAsThieves but if they dont use sha they are fighting the wrong people [21:00]
ThickAsThieves chipug, Altcoin is [21:01]
Duffer1 The Altcoin is sha256 no? [21:01]
mircea_popescu asciilifeform indeed. as if such a thing belongs anywhere outside of a creative reenactment society meeting [21:01]
chipug ah kk [21:01]
mircea_popescu Duffer1 the altcoin is sha256, not pumped and not premined. just like... you know... NO OTHER ALT out there. [21:02]
Duffer1 hehe [21:02]
mircea_popescu which is quite perverse [21:02]

asciilifeform just that it would have to be done by someone other than wankers [21:03]
mircea_popescu asciilifeform no. a war isn't decided by personal valor. [21:03]
mircea_popescu a war is decided by which way the hills slope [21:03]
pankkake botnets (except those with good enough gpus, I think there is one that was targetting gaymers) don't mine scrypt anymore, there are cpu-only coins for that [21:03]
pankkake and those cpu coins are barely profitable unless you don't pay for electricity I think [21:04]
asciilifeform pankkake: the ones i've seen most recently mine scrypt coins (the ones that are actually worth a little) [21:04]
mircea_popescu pankkake was a link here coupla days ago bout some game site that got hussled by ny for 1mn over having made $3500 from exploiting user gpus [21:04]

mircea_popescu give it that nice limoges look [23:39]
asciilifeform (can't help but think of Kafka's 'The Penal Colony') [23:39]
mircea_popescu asciilifeform it would probably need a full body scanner tho [23:40]
asciilifeform (the man invented the dot-matrix printer! seriously.) [23:40]

asciilifeform doesn't have to be full body - can run it over skin, like a shaver. [23:41]
mircea_popescu asciilifeform you ever had one of those hand-held scanners ? [23:41]
asciilifeform yes [23:42]
mircea_popescu they SUCKED [23:42]
asciilifeform they sure did. [23:42]
mircea_popescu so no, no run it over skin like a shaver. please no. [23:42]
asciilifeform newer ones with an optical mouse-style sensor instead of the wheels almost work. [23:42]
jborkl Tat, regular stratum runs against it but- mining.submit must be different. You will need to ask [23:42]
