ben_vulpes at least i can update my blog [01:35]
phf there "was", there was a standard package (require 'cl) that various parties were trying to kill. stefan monnier spent his emacs maintainer tenure deprecating, and i think succeeded. now you're supposed to use cl-lib, to the point that elisp goes out of the way to not highlight various cl forms [01:35]
phf first -> cl-first, defstruct -> cl-defstruct, etc. shitgnomery [01:36]
ben_vulpes but that's just because elisp completely lacks namespacing facilities, phf, there couldn't possibly be any sour-grapes malice at work! [01:37]

phf thestringpuller: i've used vim from about 98 to 2002 and have no problems with it, but the whole vi vs emacs thing is silly. vi is a text editor, emacs is a lisp machine. there are some substitutes hemlock, mit scheme's edwin, climacs, but nothing with this much live ecosystem. [02:04]

phf jurov: [...] now i'm curious what gpg does here << gnugp avoids the first two issues, data exchange happens through own custom buffer mechanism (fixed size and wiped at earliest possible point after each use, with afaik necessary bits to prevent caching to disk, etc.) and openpgp "packets" come with 3 byte headers, that describe the type and the size of the payload.

asciilifeform anyway submerging is nontrivial (electrolytic caps soak up your coolant and bloat, then burst) and you can also forget about repairs or upgrade [09:44]
* shesek has quit (Ping timeout: 255 seconds) [09:45]
asciilifeform likewise submerged cooling works great for, e.g., mains transformer outdoors, but for 'point source' of heat like cpu, requires circulation pumps, which... noise [09:45]

mircea_popescu nothing fucking works. ffs. [11:42]
copypaste mircea_popescu I guess if that works. Afaik /b/ is actually logged and publicly accessible. [11:43]
mircea_popescu huh ? [11:43]
copypaste I'm quoting a trilema article for the purposes of commentary [11:43]
copypaste If you give me a few minutes I'll get to the commentary :) [11:43]
mircea_popescu ok but you gotta quote better. like with quotes and source. [11:43]
mircea_popescu otherwise how am i to know [11:43]
copypaste [11:44]
assbot The irc world is a big but very flat place. on Trilema - A blog by Mircea Popescu. ... ( ) [11:44]
copypaste I was getting to that too :D [11:44]
mircea_popescu lolk. [11:44]
copypaste Anywho, /b/ is archived by many third parties, but the archive sites have a maximum lifetime of 18 months. After that time, an all encompassing archive always fails. [11:45]
mircea_popescu huh ? [11:45]
mircea_popescu has been around for a few years now for instance [11:45]
jurov nice how the ethereal ideal of "text" that can't be falsified in any conceivable system meets reality [11:45]
copypaste There are many reasons. Perhaps DMCA notices, perhaps the size of the archived content is too much for the derp running it to maintain, perhaps the guy running it just doesn't want to [11:45]
copypaste Ah ha, but is not just for /b/, and it doesn't strive to archive everything, only requested things. [11:45]
mircea_popescu jurov dude, srsly. for one thing, the file is 1.5gb, the available ram 4x that. EVEN IF IT READ IT AS A SINGLE LINE it should work. [11:46]
copypaste So's view of /b/ is not comparable to the #b-a log, which represents everything [11:46]
mircea_popescu but people can't fucking code. [11:46]
mircea_popescu copypaste true. [11:46]
mircea_popescu honestly, chans have to be toilet paper, who the hell is going to waste the bw/hdds for it otherwise. [11:46]
copypaste Indeed, I came to that conclusion independently [11:47]
mircea_popescu however... a wot-based chan, now that may be interesting. [11:47]
mircea_popescu you could technically run a chan off v. [11:47]
copypaste How could it work? [11:47]
copypaste I could help make one if you have an idea [11:47]
copypaste Would it still be anonymous ? [11:48]
mircea_popescu well, you could go two ways with it. one'd be, subscription driven, like a sort of twitter. one can see any content of people whose sigils they imported and nothing else. [11:48]
copypaste I don't understand how anonymity and the WoT could intersect in a meaningful way [11:48]
mircea_popescu the other would be push driven - people encrypt their photos to the keys they want to see them and no others. [11:48]
mircea_popescu neither of this would be anonymous - it would be pseudonymous. [11:48]
mircea_popescu anonimity is for idiots. [11:48]
copypaste ah, I see. So like Reddit then [11:48]
mircea_popescu either way a random cs-illiterate third party would not see anything. [11:49]
copypaste I've actually never even heard of a chan with forced usernames [11:49]
mircea_popescu so like twitter-reddit on sane-tor [11:49]
copypaste Much less forcing GPG keys [11:49]
mircea_popescu copypaste how are they forced ? you run gpg and make a key. whatever it comes out. [11:49]
mircea_popescu can make one key per post if you want. [11:49]
mircea_popescu ideally you replace the browser entirely, also. run as a sort of torrent. [11:50]
copypaste I see. It could have an option then to see posts not in your WoT [11:50]
copypaste Then to see posts in your Level 1 WoT, Level 2 only and so on [11:50]
copypaste I think it's a cool idea [11:50]
mircea_popescu depends which model you choose. if people encrypt their output, there's jack you can do [11:50]
copypaste No need for encryption, perhaps as an option only. Signing is just as well. [11:50]
copypaste If I get a WoTchan working, I'll link it here. [11:51]
mircea_popescu did you read the part about fuck the browser, also ? [11:51]
copypaste If I have I don't recall [11:52]
mircea_popescu ideally you replace the browser entirely, also. run as a sort of torrent. < [11:52]
mircea_popescu just fork gnutella or whatever to serve as your basis. add a render engine, and you're g2g. [11:52]
mircea_popescu no longer need to host servers, bother with "laws" and similar bullshit. if people like your shit they'll run it. [11:52]
copypaste Not bad [11:53]
mircea_popescu if not, a well. less bw. [11:53]
copypaste Gnutella did work well [11:53]
mircea_popescu but you and the people who like it can STILL run it. [11:53]
mircea_popescu basically, the correct way to implement this, is to have a "universal" key and have people encrypt to whatever keys they want. if they include the universal, then it's public. if they don't, then only whoever they encrypted to can see it. [11:54]
mircea_popescu and now V also becomes a chan soft. [11:55]
adlai deedbot-: [11:57]
assbot ... ( ) [11:57]
deedbot- accepted: 1 [11:57]
mircea_popescu copypaste it'll take a while to implement, you'll have to pull in gpg too, and some other shit. but once done it does obsolete current chanology. i can't conceive who or how could run a chan anymore on anything else. [11:58]
copypaste I especially like the part about no centralized hosting [11:59]
copypaste I have a friend who is now working for fluffypony and Monero on adding I2P to that coin (perhaps the work is already finished) [11:59]
mircea_popescu it's really not THAT hard to do, in the sense that all the needed parts already exist, even if not perfect. [12:00]
mircea_popescu so it's not one of those "shit me a micron" sort of jobs. [12:00]
copypaste But before he was doing that, he was making a distributed chan using the NNTP protocol and Tor/I2P [12:00]
fluffypony copypaste: psi? [12:00]
copypaste Yes [12:00]

mircea_popescu gernika the idea was to make a chan not to convey short text messages in a roundabout manner. [14:29]
mircea_popescu PeterL there is no way to explain the background of the culture in an ideologically acceptable manner. [14:30]

phf end of 90s remnants of su intelligentsia, who grew up on stolen, non-localized hardware in the 70s and 80s, were actively arguing for translit. i still periodically get emails from hard science types written in translit. i remember some of those people were really mad when emacs 20 added localization support (MULE was particularly dodgy take on it). i didn't understand what the big deal was back then though. ironically i didn't have [14:34]
phf shit to write or read, where's those guys produced GBs of text in translit, published entire tex papers that used escape codes to do cyrillic, etc. should've listened. [14:34]
mircea_popescu i guess this is perhaps not obvious, tho i'd expect it to be : the odds of recent code created by random derps not in the wot being ever recommended, used or regarded positively here are somewhere between nil and epsilon. even old, widely distributed, supposedly well reviewed code turns out pretty shitty on examination.

mircea_popescu so in other news, seeing how the next halving happens to more or less coincide with the expected next usg attempt to "save" bitcoin, [16:25]
mircea_popescu i imagine we'll be hearing a lot about how, and to quote, [16:25]
ascii_butugychag mircea_popescu: 'life on earth' is not an instrument, i don't push buttons on it and expect a timely response [16:25]
mircea_popescu "Then knowledgeable people complain that the evil financial network is heading for disaster, that the government sponsored enterprises are about to cause a "collapse of the total financial system", as Wallison and Alan Greenspan complained in 2005, the government debates shrinking the evil government sponsored enterprises, as with "S. 190 [109th]: Federal Housing Enterprise Regulatory Reform Act of 2005" but they find [16:25]
mircea_popescu easy money too seductive, and S. 190 goes down in flames before a horde of political activists chanting that easy money is sound, and opposing it is racist, nazi, ignorant, and generally hateful, the recent S. 190 debate on limiting portfolios (bond issue supporting dud mortgages) by government sponsored enterprises being a perfect reprise of the debates on limiting the issue of new assignats in the 1790s." [16:25]
mircea_popescu ascii_butugychag neither is bitcoin. [16:25]
mircea_popescu your "push button, i matter" mental model is only applicable here inasmuch as you're hypocritical enough to go "i planted tree, and got an apple, therefore am in control" sorta thing. [16:26]
copypaste mircea_popescu: i've heard some saying that miners won't "allow" the halving to occur because they would never "vote for" something so against their "best interest"...these people don't understand the social contract behind bitcoin of course, or even that miners don't vote on anything but who gets 25BTC [16:26]
mircea_popescu otherwise... no. zero control and no buttons. [16:26]
mircea_popescu copypaste no, "these people" who aren't in any sort of sense people are merely laying the ground work for "the next battle", as they perceive the string of endless humiliations and buttrapes they receive. [16:27]
mircea_popescu it's kinda funny to me, because the vermin they regard as their progenitors, various "social rights activists" and whatnot benefitted from a context where each defeat made eventual victory more likely. [16:28]

mircea_popescu the situation here is EXACTLY opposite, but they obviously lack anything other than the zombie drive. [16:28]
mircea_popescu braaaaainzzzz [16:28]
copypaste as far as i'm concerned at this point any bitcoin hardfork is an altcoin and every softfork is a way to give free coins to miners at some later date [16:29]

mircea_popescu you can't even list them, you're gonna test for them too ? [19:00]
ascii_butugychag mircea_popescu: fortunately the question is never about the set of ~all possible~ things [19:00]

mircea_popescu not specific, is the problem. [19:00]

* danielpbarron has never had a cavity or tooth pulled :D [19:02]
ascii_butugychag but yes, discussion was ~specifically~ re: known adulterants [19:02]
mircea_popescu i'd take provenance over "known list" [19:02]
mircea_popescu because i know a lot more about a clean spot than you';ll know about your list. [19:02]
mircea_popescu "my folk lived here 2400 years" [19:02]
mircea_popescu beat that. [19:02]
ascii_butugychag i can think of a few very gamma-backgroundy places where 'my folk lived 2400 y' [19:03]
mircea_popescu nevertheless, the argument is made. now it's a matter of quantification. [19:03]
jurov ascii_butugychag: do you approach this way the software you're going to use too? just check for known adulterants? [19:04]

jurov same with food [19:05]
deedbot- [Trilema] That's right, time to move on. Please do. Bitcoin is really not for you. - [19:05]
ascii_butugychag seems like nobody grasped the actual point i was trying to make - where the provenance is a means to an end (clean tomato) rather than the end [19:05]
ascii_butugychag but i can't think of any reason why anyone should give a fuck re: the difference presently, so count me as sold [19:06]
mircea_popescu jurov: that would be hilariously stupid ? << loller. [19:06]
jurov i did grasp it but, that's why i asked about software [19:06]
mircea_popescu but alfie! MITIGATITS! [19:06]
ascii_butugychag thing is, ascertaining anything useful about software is undecidable [19:06]
jurov same with food, again [19:07]
mircea_popescu you think too highly of chem analytics. also undecidable. [19:07]
ascii_butugychag depends, again, what you're looking for (specific item, or general toxicology - which ~is~ undecidable) [19:07]
mircea_popescu are you looking for working software or merely software that never croaks on like 666 ? [19:07]

punkman btw does Lemote still make any hardware that don't need blobs? [21:46]
asciilifeform it makes ~something~ but it is unobtainable outside cn [21:47]
asciilifeform also it switched to using licensed chip masks from the west, a few years back [21:47]
asciilifeform which is when i lost what remaining interest i had. [21:47]
asciilifeform as for rms, his lemote was stolen, in buenos aires, and - afaik - he was never able to purchase another. [21:47]
asciilifeform the thing is a mega-rarity, 'collectible' perhaps at this point, if you come across one, leave it in the crate, sell for $$$$ [21:48]
asciilifeform fwiw, AMD's G-series chipset will run without blobs. [21:49]

gernika asciilifeform: does the term "human compiler" reference lisp specifically, in that with lisp you can write code that writes code, thus if you're not using lisp, you're writing code that could have been written by a computer, and are thus "compiling?" [21:58]

punkman asciilifeform: any devices with AMD G-series? [22:03]
asciilifeform punkman: the pcengines box (at least the ones i have) [22:05]
asciilifeform possibly other 'low-end' amd [22:05]
asciilifeform but, importantly, [22:05]
asciilifeform not for long. [22:05]
asciilifeform that much is obvious. [22:05]
asciilifeform according to the libreboot link, amd has fully caught up with intel in re: usgtronics. [22:06]
asciilifeform gernika: very generally, but yes [22:06]
asciilifeform gotta love how the coreboot folks pretend that they are somehow still relevant by way of supporting a handful of unobtainable chips [22:08]
asciilifeform (srsly, powerpc !?!!) [22:08]
punkman found one [22:08]
assbot Gizmo 2 | GizmoSphere ... ( ) [22:08]
asciilifeform punkman: same chipset as in pcengines [22:09]
asciilifeform i have a 'gizmo 1' [22:09]
asciilifeform these also appeared in some low-end notebooks [22:09]
punkman why doesn't libreboot support any g-series? [22:09]
asciilifeform iirc it is a 'stable' fork of coreboot [22:10]
punkman nah, the difference is they don't allow any blobs [22:10]
asciilifeform fwiw the pcengines boards and the 'gizmo' series don't even ship with proprietary bios at all [22:10]
punkman maybe nobody's done it yet [22:10]
asciilifeform punkman: the g-series coreboot i have here has 'blobs' per the strictest definition, they are - iirc - modify but don't redistribute - licensed by amd [22:11]
asciilifeform but came with the src. [22:11]
asciilifeform and also they concern acpi, which can be safely ditched if running a sane os [22:12]
punkman now if only I could get g-series with ECC I'd be very happy [22:12]
asciilifeform punkman: no such thing offered afaik. [22:12]
asciilifeform at any rate, i cannot recommend any presently-manufactured x86 chipset except as a 'lesser evil' [22:14]

asciilifeform it is entirely, thoroughly The Wrong Thing [23:04]
asciilifeform and is responsible for many of the present woes. [23:05]
punkman suppose I have two dozen nodes on dynamic IP [23:05]
asciilifeform the ~correct~ behaviour for a node is to service a hand-picked set of trusted peers [23:05]
asciilifeform AND OPTIONALLY - as resources are available - folks who knock on the door. [23:05]
asciilifeform IN THAT ORDER. [23:05]
asciilifeform and never otherwise. [23:05]
punkman I can give you a secret phrase, which if hashed and used as torrent infohash, allows you to get my current IPs from torrent tracker [23:06]
asciilifeform why do we need the motherfucking middleman ?!!!!! [23:06]
assbot [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 44500 @ 0.00056604 = 25.1888 BTC [-] [23:06]
asciilifeform so i will review, for the benefit of non-panzers, the current state [23:07]
asciilifeform presently trb does not have this sane behaviour [23:07]
asciilifeform it can run in one of two modes, '-connect' where it services a fixed list of peers, AND NOBODY ELSE (no incoming tcp) [23:07]
asciilifeform or '-addnode' where it takes a list of peers but 'as mere suggestions' and will happily drop'em, and connect to random derps [23:07]
asciilifeform the first mode can be disregarded as it does not result in a public node. it is useful for running hotwallets on your own lan, for running mircea_popescu-style 'dark' nodes over ad hoc vpn with kim jong il, etc. [23:09]
asciilifeform the second mode is what all of my trb boxen are set to, and it results in a comedy where the thing routinely drops friends on the floor and dallies about attempting to connect to randomly-selected derp ips [23:09]
* jordandotdev has quit (Quit: Connection closed for inactivity) [23:09]
mircea_popescu prolly next to fix huh [23:10]
mircea_popescu tho it's tangled with the whole mempool priority thing [23:10]
asciilifeform nope [23:10]
ben_vulpes tangled how? [23:10]
asciilifeform not really, no [23:10]
mircea_popescu how do you know how to value "others" [23:10]
asciilifeform easy [23:10]
asciilifeform they rank STRICTLY below hand-picked peers. [23:10]
mircea_popescu among themselves i mean. [23:10]
asciilifeform i am contemplating a strictly 2-tiered hierarchy here. [23:11]
mircea_popescu and how much is "strictly" in integers [23:11]
mircea_popescu seems to me if gonna do it might as well do it once, but anyway. [23:11]
asciilifeform 'strictly' means that door-knockers get serviced ONLY when friends are idle. [23:11]
asciilifeform i've held off attempting to do anything about this because 'usg can diddle packets arbitrarily, we need gossipd' but there is no particular logic to this. [23:11]
mircea_popescu this will never occur. [23:11]
mircea_popescu think of how the mempool flows [23:11]
asciilifeform gotta quantize the processing. [23:12]
asciilifeform i.e. meter resource consumption per peer. [23:12]
asciilifeform stray dogs ought to get the crumbs off the table. [23:13]
mircea_popescu aha [23:13]
thestringpuller looks like trb will have gossipd support? [23:13]
asciilifeform what was the mircea_popescu piece, 'carnita, lu' fetita, si osoiul, lu' baboiul' [23:14]
asciilifeform (ro dante ?) [23:14]
asciilifeform thestringpuller: the everybody-is-equal thing is not sustainable [23:15]

assbot Taraf de Haïdouks - "Clejani Love Song" - YouTube ... ( ) [23:15]
thestringpuller is there no manual approach for this process yet? i.e. people sign/deed node ip address. you use -connect flag [23:15]
asciilifeform and i dare say that this will become more apparent as 'axe time, sword time' carries on [23:16]
thestringpuller -connect/-addnode should make those peers the priority first and drop other nodes second [23:16]
