punkman "Guerilla marketing is probably the most effective means, vinyl stickers at urinals on mirrors under drive thru windows under the drive thru speaker bumper stickers and the great thing about bitcoin is the stickers could actually have a qr code that links you to some free satoshis so people that never considered buying bitcoin just have to pull out there phone" [00:06]

decimation Todd had received assistance paying his utility bills in the past, but did not apply for help this year, said Tom VanLandingham, who directs the Office of Home Energy Programs in Somerset County. Families can apply once a year, and assistance is based on household income and energy use, among other factors. "We're all kind of baffled as to why he did not apply this year ... that's the million-dollar question," VanLandingham said [00:17]

asciilifeform the 'one fallen wire' story is a lie of omission [00:49]
asciilifeform there is normally redundancy in the grid. [00:49]
asciilifeform the 'one wire,' even if true, can only be the 'straw that broke camel's back' [00:50]
decimation yeah, that's a good point [00:50]
asciilifeform none of the mouthpieces will discuss this, no surprise [00:50]

BingoBoingo the 'one wire,' even if true, can only be the 'straw that broke camel's back' << It was August during peak consumption. Amren stopped delivering anything through the town's 5 MW backup line so the 30 MW transmission line failed at 38.5 MW and started a small swiftly contained brush fire.

asciilifeform mircea_popescu: i heard nothing about caviar spoiling in the fridges at 'lockheed' or 'raytheon' [00:54]

decimation right, what that means is "Pepco said some stuff, hoping folks would quit asking" [00:57]
decimation generally the strategy for utilities is to smile and nod, and wait until next week when nobody gives a shit [00:57]
mircea_popescu this was actually bombed. [00:57]
mircea_popescu "A Charles County, Maryland official confirmed to Utility Dive that an explosion occurred at a substation. However, CBS reported that their sources tell them there was no explosion at all, while the Associated Press reported that the explosion occurred at a power plant." [00:58]

decimation well, this is probably true [01:13]
asciilifeform not to mention that not one in 10 installations will cover the wattage of the house ac at full sun [01:13]

felipelalli BingoBoingo: welcome! it's an honor. [04:05]
felipelalli BingoBoingo: so, let's implement that idea? The ransomware promises: deposit X bitcoin to account XYZ and we'll free your data. Then, do nothing! No more "good bad guys", no more hope. lol [04:10]
BingoBoingo felipelalli: Well the entire idea of ransomware is premised on people getting their data back if they pay. [04:10]

felipelalli BingoBoingo: that's the idea! [04:11]
BingoBoingo As seriously as people build up the ransomware threat the entire ecosystem is awfully precarious. One could readily kill it with ransomware that did not honor a ransom [04:12]
felipelalli BingoBoingo: making a "really lier" ransomware would accelerate this process. hahaha [04:12]

mircea_popescu ascii_field part of the problem is that you're stuck mushing together items that can arbitrarily be anything between 100 bytes and whatever, 250kb. and there's a lot of them. no way to allocate but dynamically, willy-nilly keep getting them allocated and deallocated and again and again. [17:29]
ascii_field mircea_popescu: i know what heap fragging is [17:30]
mircea_popescu no, i just mean, with bitcoin is to some degree unavoidalbe, because txn. [17:30]
ascii_field entirely avoidable if one plans for it [17:30]
mircea_popescu yeah well. [17:31]
ascii_field typically this is handled with custom 'multi-generational' allocator [17:31]
mircea_popescu yes but it's worse than that : if you have an elegant alocator and the people do not, your chain will fork and theirs will not. [17:31]
mircea_popescu this is one of those places where bug to bug compatibility rears it's ugly butt. [17:32]
* gabridome has quit (Ping timeout: 272 seconds) [17:32]
jurov what part of buttcoin depends on memory allocation? [17:32]
ascii_field mircea_popescu: if allocator leads to fork, it is wrong [17:33]
mircea_popescu kinda why idiots (and by that i mean satoshi) shouldn't be allowed to code in the first place. but hey, we believe in the power of belief... [17:33]
mircea_popescu ascii_field it will construct and mine a block that makes everyone else crash, conceivably. [17:33]
mircea_popescu and subtly, to boot. [17:33]
* gabridome ( has joined #bitcoin-assets [17:33]
ascii_field mircea_popescu: a proper 1m block should never be able to 'make everyone crash' [17:33]
jurov even improper [17:34]
ascii_field if such a thing could, then bitcoin is buggy and the sooner it is detonated, the better [17:34]
mircea_popescu i am atm not sure it couldn't. [17:34]
mircea_popescu in fact, this has happened (not due to the heap issue, true) [17:34]
ascii_field the bdb thng ? [17:34]
mircea_popescu yes the locks thing [17:35]
mircea_popescu note very similar issue : exhausted locks, exhausted heap... [17:35]
ascii_field it was an epic lameness and a number of folks ought to have felt the stake [17:35]
* _ben2 has quit () [17:35]
mircea_popescu yeah well. let me propose something for you here. just for curiosity's sake, a rough model. [17:35]
mircea_popescu so i broadcast 50k 140 byte txn. you allocate these, they fail, you deallocate them. before you had time to go through the lot however, [17:36]
BingoBoingo dude i swear there was a different coinsetter that was trying to be a sort of coindeks << I constantly run into new ventures that imagine they are qntra competitors [17:36]
mircea_popescu i also broadcast 50k 150 byte txn. these go in your pile, and on fresh memory. [17:36]
* assbot removes voice from ascii_field [17:36]
mircea_popescu !up ascii_field [17:36]
-assbot- You voiced ascii_field for 30 minutes. [17:36]
* assbot gives voice to ascii_field [17:36]
mircea_popescu by the time you're entirely exhausted, i broadcast some more txn and mine a block with them. [17:37]
BingoBoingo who's on the qntra /reddit as usg mouthpiece/ beat? << There is a trilema post tracking this phenomenon, but if you want to elevate it to a sustained operation go for it. [17:37]
ascii_field mircea_popescu: this in fact happens 'in the wild.' the only reason it does not lead to forks where folks with, e.g., 1GB of ram wheel off into a parallel universe from folks with 2GB, and 4GB, etc. is, [17:37]
mircea_popescu that everyone uses about as much ram ? [17:37]
ascii_field that the fragging issue itself results in ludicrously overpowered boxes being put to use [17:38]
mircea_popescu right. [17:38]
mircea_popescu but it remains a problem, this. [17:38]
ascii_field where the garbage has time to coalesce [17:38]
mircea_popescu note that this is one of the majorest issues lurking in the "larger blocks" [17:38]
mircea_popescu currently the 1mb limit is blessfully keeping THIS (among its many sisters) under the water. [17:38]
mircea_popescu that gavin [pretends like he] doesn't know such is exactly why the verbiage as to the retarded boy in one of my articles debunking the nonsense. [17:39]
jurov i don't see the issue why that would lead to fork per se. [17:39]
jurov you just flush the disk cache by your misallocations and then take longer to verify the block [17:40]
mircea_popescu but do you mathematically see the proof where it never would ? [17:40]
mircea_popescu different standards here. [17:40]
mircea_popescu in general, going by the "never one single bug in kitchen, and noting that bdb locks are a resource of the kind that pointers are, just one easier to exhaust, i propose this as likely, on the basis of my business heuristics. [17:41]
mircea_popescu which obviously differ from your coder heuristics. but differ to our benefit. [17:41]
jurov bdb is much more coplicated and hard to debug api than malloc/free [17:42]
mircea_popescu every word is complicated for whosoever doesn't read. [17:42]
mircea_popescu and the bitcoind allocation scheme isn't a jewel or anything. [17:43]
ascii_field 'isn't a jewel' << mega-understatement of the century [17:44]
jurov nothing is a jewel here [17:44]
mircea_popescu fuck you, i'm a jewel. [17:44]
jurov yea, like you never make mistakes [17:45]
mircea_popescu no, like a jew. [17:45]
mircea_popescu only with -el. [17:45]
ascii_field like sapper. [17:45]
ascii_field sappers get to make their one mistake. [17:45]
ascii_field at any rate, this gedankenexperiment is an interesting one - where does 'bug for bug compatibility' legitimately stop? are we obligated to crash for 1GB of uncoalesceable crud, or 2GB? 4? 16? [17:47]
* CheckDavid (uid14990@gateway/web/ has joined #bitcoin-assets [17:48]
mircea_popescu this afaik has never been seriously measured [17:48]
mircea_popescu we don't care atm, because we know experimentally the system as deployed is stable. [17:48]
ascii_field didn't say that it was (except that it - was, i measured) [17:48]
mircea_popescu nevertheless, before any sort of change, like say a block size increase, this will have to be measured [17:48]
mircea_popescu among many other things [17:49]
ascii_field more high-level dilemma here [17:49]
mircea_popescu not among which, the opnion of reddit, the headers of miners etc. [17:49]
ascii_field at what point do 'we' get to proclaim that folks using the buggy version are retarded ? [17:49]
mircea_popescu not how this is handled. [17:49]
mircea_popescu we explain the problem, publish the measuring tools, let people declare themselves retarded. [17:49]
* ascii_field has no idea how, or even whether, this is handled. [17:49]
mircea_popescu once enough do... problem solved. [17:49]
mircea_popescu before... we wait. [17:50]
mircea_popescu like i've been waiting, on many things, for many years. [17:50]
ascii_field and until then, what? we are required to leak at the same rate as which extant bitcoind? [17:50]
ascii_field gavin's? [17:50]
ascii_field the java turd ? [17:50]
mircea_popescu until then, we hang out in irc. [17:50]
ascii_field we don't even know for a fact what it is the miners use.. [17:50]
mircea_popescu and say yes and no as people ask and wonder. [17:50]
mircea_popescu as teh expression goes, "relax, you have plenty of time. tomorrow - you die." [17:51]
ascii_field to continue with the line of thought, as soon as we so much as frag less than gavin's turd, someone - anyone - could send us off on a fork of less-retardation. [17:51]
ascii_field simply by churning out 'godelian' blocks for gavincoin [17:51]

mircea_popescu But in the spirit of thumbing one’s nose at government overreach, here’s a sampling of unofficial, but highly reputable statistics about Tanzania that might explain what’s going on. [23:11]
mircea_popescu 1. Only a third of children can read in English [23:11]
mircea_popescu Like many other African countries, Tanzania has made huge strides in expanding basic services like health and education. The primary school enrollment rate, for instance, is officially at 94%. But “unofficial” statistics suggest the quality of those services is often quite poor. [23:11]
mircea_popescu hey look at that. tanzanian kids read about as well as us kids. [23:11]
mircea_popescu except, of course, english is about as relevant to tanzania as korean to the us. [23:11]

ben_vulpes trinque: i need those legacy deeds in deedbot. [23:16]
mircea_popescu decimation yea, i'm sure THAT's why they don't negotiate. [23:16]
mircea_popescu not because economy's dead and whoever has "investors" to connect them to the printing teat can simply dictate terms. [23:17]
mircea_popescu entirely transparent project to reduce hiring costs << moar like, entirely transparent admission that "well, mp said he's killing us, we're as good as dead, might as well give up" [23:17]
ben_vulpes boss your penchant for recasting everything as a result of your own actions is endlessly amusing [23:18]
trinque ben_vulpes: alright, I'll put 'em in [23:19]
ben_vulpes apropos of nothing, what kind of retarded programming situation *even permits* for the bitcoin reward overflow bug in the first place?! [23:19]
ben_vulpes trinque: thanks man. there's a lot of rebel foundation stuff in there i need published again. [23:20]
asciilifeform ilkka kokkarinen, before being forced to choose between eating and blogging (tenure does not exist in canada?) had an interesting piece on the 'stages of progressivism' [23:20]
trinque ben_vulpes: no problemo; doin it now [23:20]
asciilifeform (1) was 'unthinkable' and (n) - i forget what n equaled - 'mandatory' [23:20]
mircea_popescu 3. The group is of the opinion that their work was being overlooked because of their politics, and that the Hugo ballots and winners of the last several years were only awarded due to leftist politics and the racial/sexual/gender identities of their authors, not quality. The tenor of the call to arms was explicitly and often resoundingly political–“this is your chance to hurt SJWs.” If you don’t know what an SJ [23:20]
mircea_popescu W is, I hope you’re enjoying your new computer. It stands for Social Justice Warrior, which to a normal person sounds like someone who fights for justice and cares about all human beings, and to conservatives like the devil himself. The implication that they then must support injustice seems to be lost. [23:20]
ben_vulpes trinque: thanks bae [23:20]
mircea_popescu bwahaha. [23:20]
asciilifeform the 'no negotiation' thing left stage-1 long ago, and is worming its way towards n [23:20]
mircea_popescu ah that's some top kek lj drama. [23:20]
asciilifeform mircea_popescu: for extra plus lulz: i met this person in real life once. [23:21]
mircea_popescu really, opposing "social justice" implies one supports... injustice ? how about the obvious "social-anything is stupid, for many reasons we won't rehash, and never has anything to do with the vanilla version" ? [23:21]
mircea_popescu i guess THATs lost. [23:21]
mircea_popescu fat tranny ? [23:21]
mircea_popescu "4. None of this is strictly speaking against the rules. It’s unethical. It’s almost laughably petty and mean-spirited." [23:21]
asciilifeform female as far as i could determine [23:21]
* assbot removes voice from jitenm1 [23:22]
mircea_popescu o wait. bitching at excellent scientists because they didn't say stupid-thing-x-about-our-aggenda is not laughably petty and outright idiotic. [23:22]
mircea_popescu social-thinking ftw. [23:22]
asciilifeform so the quick version is, english language science fiction -mostly- died long ago [23:23]
mircea_popescu ".And to an author of integrity, it’s a pointless act of bullying, because if you don’t compete against the best, an award is meaningless." [23:23]
asciilifeform when the civilization that it was an ornament on, had died [23:23]
mircea_popescu right. and brokeback mountain isn't an endless piece of meaningless cheese. because polarities. [23:23]
mircea_popescu asciilifeform srsly, it never really existed. [23:23]
asciilifeform the remaining authors are largely 'wannebees' who wank themselves to sleep every night wishing for a 'minimum wage' income from their drivel; [23:23]
asciilifeform a select few - who were able to con someone into printing, and a somewhat larger set of others (friends, family, sex partners) into buying, [23:24]
asciilifeform get to earn approx. what a clerk earns, while doing this. [23:24]
nubbins` <+mircea_popescu> right. and brokeback mountain isn't an endless piece of meaningless cheese. because polarities. <<< in fairness, the book was under 100 pages [23:24]
ben_vulpes here's to the minimum wage and full employment! [23:24]
nubbins` ~65 iirc [23:24]
mircea_popescu The ballot looks ridiculous. John C. Wright has three nominations in the novella category and six overall, a record. The vast majority of the works are published by Castalia House, a Finnish micropublisher barely a year old and owned, I’m sure coincidentally, by Vox Day. Wisdom From My Internet, nominated in the Best Related Work category, is neither science fiction, nor, strictly speaking, a book, (Edit: many things [23:25]
mircea_popescu not books have been nominated in the category, let’s say it’s not an original work) but a collection of right-wing chain emails and one liners–which, among other works [23:25]
ben_vulpes may it drain the usg's coffers and drive her to hitherto unprecedented printing sprees. [23:25]
mircea_popescu nubbins` ^ exactly like that, but in the other stupid colors. [23:25]
asciilifeform ben_vulpes: you might be thinking of academics. the folks i was speaking of, don't get grantola. [23:25]
asciilifeform they work largely like 'amway' salesmen once did [23:25]
nubbins` <+ben_vulpes> boss your penchant for recasting everything as a result of your own actions is endlessly amusing <<< i came for the btc, stayed for the lels [23:26]
asciilifeform browbeating friends, family, colleagues, fucktoys - into 'pleeese buy!' [23:26]
ben_vulpes [23:26]
mircea_popescu asciilifeform incidentally - amway never took off in romania. [23:26]
assbot pussydestroyer ... ( ) [23:26]
mircea_popescu reason ? unattached youngish female begging people is usually offered a junior mistress arrangement. [23:26]
nubbins` <+asciilifeform> (tenure does not exist in canada?) <<< canada's like a miniature version of usa set back a few years. [23:26]
decimation I bet cultures that are largely 'peer to peer' are immune to 'multi-level marketing' [23:27]
mircea_popescu i suppose one needs the particular idiocies of the us for the particular forms of the us idiocy to manifest. [23:27]

decimation I was thinking in the sense that 'why should I buy from your dumbass amway when I already have a guy for that' [23:28]
mircea_popescu asciilifeform yup. [23:28]
ben_vulpes asciilifeform: you savvy "food stamps"? [23:28]
mircea_popescu decimation no, it's more like "why would a pretty girl like you go do this whorish stupid thing ?" [23:28]
decimation heh [23:28]
decimation in the us most of these schemes are 'sold [23:29]
mircea_popescu "do a proper whorish thing instead." [23:29]
decimation by old women [23:29]
mircea_popescu mostly tried with "students" in .ro [23:29]
asciilifeform ben_vulpes: some of these people may or may not get various pensions, handouts, etc. mostly - not. [23:29]
mircea_popescu ie, the 17-29 demographic [23:29]
asciilifeform ben_vulpes: in the case of the woman linked earlier, my understanding is that she is largely funded by husband - a swell chap, from ru, of approximately my age, whom i also met once. [23:30]
ben_vulpes wai wut woman? [23:30]
ben_vulpes surely i'm not that drunk yet i thought we were talking of ilka [23:30]

asciilifeform BingoBoingo: it's the traditional small extinquisher, meant for use on motor, not on self or passengers [23:51]
decimation BingoBoingo: yeah but the point is to inflate wheel enough to make it to tire vendor [23:51]
asciilifeform i am now wondering if you folks have halon or what in there. [23:51]
BingoBoingo asciilifeform: Amall dry powder in passenger compartment, CO2 in trunk except summers [23:52]
BingoBoingo decimation: That's what undersized spare in trunk is for [23:53]

asciilifeform BingoBoingo: and how on earth would it nuke your wheel [23:54]
asciilifeform tire - yes [23:54]
BingoBoingo asciilifeform: The fix a flat adheres to the wheel's metal. Also tends to deploy unevenly. wheels in the best case need scraped after use, in worst case become malformed [23:55]
decimation only after driving on them for awhile [23:56]
nubbins` "Update: Some of you have suggested that Morris might have body dysmorphic disorder. If that's the case, we hope she finds a professional who can guide her away from excessive plastic surgeries and toward self-acceptance." [23:57]

nubbins` "sorry, we didn't realize this obvious mental illness had a name" [23:57]
* asciilifeform used this type of product many times, had tires repaired, never noticed this effect - at one point even drove for entire year on such a tire. [23:57]
BingoBoingo decimation: "a while" is not a very precise measurement [23:57]
decimation between 100 and 1000 miles [23:58]
decimation maybe even longer [23:58]
asciilifeform nubbins`: iirc the 'state of the art' shrink practice is not 'self-acceptance' but prescription of mutilations [23:58]
asciilifeform e.g. amputation fetishist gets amputation, etc. [23:58]
* BingoBoingo always been sold on not using fix a flat without first person experience. [23:58]
asciilifeform BingoBoingo: it has obvious caveats, such as being violently explosive [23:59]
* BingoBoingo also generally suspicious of build quality of vehicle parts [23:59]
