mircea_popescu BingoBoingo quite. [00:00]
nubbins` actually i suppose a better idea is to deturdify 0.5.3 first [00:00]
mircea_popescu perhaps as important : bitcoin addresses are for getting paid. NOT for proving your identity [00:00]
mircea_popescu mixing these two is antidesign. [00:00]
nubbins` no sense including turds in first commit [00:00]

* OX3 has quit (Remote host closed the connection) [00:01]
asciilifeform no sense including turds in first commit << surprisingly, i must disagree. we gotta show the pedigree from classical bitcoind. [00:01]
nubbins` a-ha, that's also fair [00:01]
mircea_popescu lol yeap. [00:01]
nubbins` so clone 0.5.3 to our tree as 0.5.3 [00:01]
nubbins` remove qt etc, add non-shit additions from 0.6-0.6.3 [00:02]
nubbins` release it as real 0.6 [00:02]
asciilifeform first someone please unearth a genuine vintage tarball of 0.5.3. github of poundation sc4mz0rz could be doctored. [00:02]
nubbins` dance into the sunset holding hands [00:02]
mike_c why not release it as real 0.1 [00:02]
mircea_popescu cuz it's not teh 0.1 not rly. [00:02]
mike_c it's not 0.6 rly either [00:02]
mircea_popescu i could see an argument for releasing it as the real 0.9 tho [00:03]
nubbins` sure it is [00:03]
mircea_popescu or w/e the derps are doing currently. [00:03]
nubbins` haha head 'em off [00:03]

mike_c hey thickasthieves, wake up and back me up. this things needs different branding. [00:03]
nubbins` i'd be more in favor of mirroring derp release numbers for now [00:03]
nubbins` [00:04]
assbot Logged on 22-10-2014 17:56:50; othernubs`: copy the cream, chuck the crap [00:04]
nubbins` next release, 0.7, takes actual improvements from 0.7.* series and weeds out crud [00:04]
nubbins` etc [00:04]
mike_c uh, like all of it? [00:04]
* gilgameshugga (~gilgamesh@ has joined #bitcoin-assets [00:04]
mike_c why the fuck would this project follow in derpy footsteps? [00:04]
mircea_popescu yeah srsly. [00:05]
asciilifeform first - we pillage. Then - we burn. [00:05]
nubbins` heh [00:05]
bounce guy got the order right [00:05]
mircea_popescu asciilifeform but pillage the whole thing in one go. [00:05]
nubbins` this is assuming there are useful bugfixes in 0.7-0.9 [00:05]
mike_c right, which is v0.1 - pillaging. [00:05]
asciilifeform yes. [00:05]
nubbins` i'm sure there must be [00:05]
nubbins` however few [00:05]
mircea_popescu mike_c why "different branding" ? [00:05]
nubbins` this is what, a couple weeks of sifting to identify em [00:05]
nubbins` we'd be at 0.9 by xmas [00:05]
mike_c because it will be different (and better) [00:06]
nubbins` no, core is different :D [00:06]
PeterL but it will still be "bitcoin" [00:06]
mike_c and that is worth signifying, instead of looking like a clone. [00:06]
mircea_popescu mike_c usgavin's crap is the different [00:06]
mircea_popescu and worse. [00:06]
mircea_popescu that's the message here. we got the brand. [00:06]
mike_c exactly, so why follow their lead? [00:07]
asciilifeform reactionary deeds, not mere words, yes. [00:07]
mircea_popescu the wanna-bes on the outskirts of bitcoin are making baseless claims to a continuity that doesn't exist. [00:07]
mike_c i would rather use b-a bitcoin v0.1 over derpy bitcoin v0.9 [00:07]
mircea_popescu mike_c the crocodile that opens maw to let stuff in, then lets water back out is not following toads lead. [00:07]
mircea_popescu it's merely eating toads. [00:07]
mike_c yeah, and to follow this odd analogy, it doesn't call itself "toad". it calls itself "crocodile" [00:08]
nubbins` anyway, getting ahead of ourselves [00:08]
mircea_popescu which is what we're calling ourselves. bitcoin. [00:08]
nubbins` first step, 0.5.3->real 0.6 [00:08]
cazalla bounce wishes the politicians would show some spine here. take their local passport, wave goodbye, declare them europe-wide persona non grata for all eternity. problem solved. <<< they sorta did that here but cancelled the passports so that they couldn't leave australia and not after [00:08]
asciilifeform ditch the fractional versions. 1, 2, 3, infinity. natural numbers. [00:08]
mircea_popescu mike_c think of it strategically. won't it be funny when usgavin is stuck arguing that a) he's forking bitcoin and b) it's the real bitcoin ? [00:09]
mike_c fractional versions serve purpose normally (not in bitcoincore fantasyland) [00:09]
PeterL why not just call it 1.0? [00:09]
mircea_popescu put usg people in usg type positions. [00:09]
mircea_popescu PeterL mostly cause not mature. [00:09]
PeterL what does it need to be mature? [00:09]
mircea_popescu to be 1.0 ? tradition. [00:09]
PeterL a specification? [00:10]
mircea_popescu ;;google tradition tradition! [00:10]

assbot Ubuntu Warty visual theme/Image archive - Geek Feminism Wiki [00:10]
mike_c 1.0 can be the first version that has no more bitcoincore legacy code in it [00:10]
mircea_popescu that won't likely ever happen. [00:10]
mircea_popescu what may perhaps happen is a day when gavin, mike and co finally go full-ethereum [00:10]
mircea_popescu and make a "bitcoin" that has no more bitcoin in it at all. [00:10]
* assbot gives voice to artifexd [00:10]
asciilifeform i confess - i actually like moldy's 'kelvin versioning.' [00:11]
mircea_popescu asciilifeform on the c machine tho ? [00:11]
mircea_popescu and also, it's kuhns [00:11]
asciilifeform start at temperature, e.g., 500K. then 'cooling'. theoretically 0K means it will -never- be reasonable to change it. ever. [00:12]
undata BingoBoingo: I remember that; bizarre [00:12]
nubbins` do the java thing and call it Bitcoin 6 [00:12]
nubbins` fuck everything [00:12]
PeterL windows thing and call it Bitcoin 2014 [00:12]
mircea_popescu asciilifeform seriously, donald kuhn did that. [00:12]
mike_c my instinct is that any versioning system other than following the derps would be better [00:12]
asciilifeform on anything, hell, univac. kelvin versioning doesn't mean you will never throw the whole thing away. just experesses the concept that code must cool down to pefect crystalline form, rather than accumulating turdacles. [00:12]

mircea_popescu mike_c not a bad instinct generally, but gotta start somewhere. [00:14]
undata asciilifeform: would the "crystalline" form only describe features? this seems to fly in the face of the "provably correct" conversation of the other day [00:14]
mircea_popescu los_pantalones apparently. [00:14]
los_pantalones just heard these guys closed 50mm [00:14]

asciilifeform we aren't doing 'provably correct' or even 'fits in head' quite yet. just a reasonably sane janitorial job on classical bitcoind. downed pilot has to eat, whether the fauna have four legs, six, or a thousand. [00:15]

mircea_popescu los_pantalones so basically.. maxwell, wuille towards the end, and WHO ARE THESE PEOPLE lol [00:16]

los_pantalones then i looked at the site [00:17]

kakobrekla blockstream has nice logo [00:21]
mircea_popescu i see the "3 year's experience" thing got a ++ ? [00:21]
asciilifeform why the everliving fuck is usbid on any ftdi - genuine or chinese - reflashable inband ?!?! [00:22]
thickasthieves <+kakobrekla> blockstream has nice logo -- not bad, i'd have gone for less segments in the icon [00:22]
mircea_popescu los_pantalones uhm... from what i hear the 50 mn reports may be grossly exaggerated. [00:22]
los_pantalones possible [00:22]
los_pantalones was a single call [00:22]
kakobrekla thickasthieves more segments, more mm. [00:22]
asciilifeform i always wondered [00:22]
mircea_popescu in the sense that if i donate to the bitcoin foundation a btc and consider maybe donating another 100 in time [00:22]
los_pantalones guy should know [00:22]
thickasthieves i cant argue with more is more [00:22]
mircea_popescu it has not in fact received 101 btc financing. [00:22]
* kakobrekla learns from best chumpatrons [00:23]
los_pantalones understood, ty for the clarification [00:23]
asciilifeform waitasec, this is funded project? why? [00:23]
bounce actually bricking? oh dear. that is maybe a little too enthousiastic. but the poor chinese copies claiming to be ftdi then only implementing half the stuff and causing trouble that reflects badly on ftdi would tire me out, honestly. [00:23]
* bounce wouldn't be surprised to learn the chips bricked themselves because they're not up to spec [00:23]
mircea_popescu sounds like a distinct possiblity bounce [00:24]
bounce setting product id to 0. didn't know they even had programmable vid/pid [00:25]
asciilifeform yes reprogrammable, it's intended as a prototype aid. but why inband?!?! [00:26]
bounce and, hm, if the device proclaims to be vendor x / product y, then does the vendor have a right to say "but I didn't make this, this is fake. not my product" and set product id to 0? [00:26]
asciilifeform i always hated inband reflashable fw in consumer products. invitation for mice. [00:26]
bounce first sale doctrine probably says "no" though. but oh so tempting. [00:27]
mircea_popescu how does first sale doctrine say no ? [00:28]
bounce by the time the driver hits the owner is the client, not the fake vendor nor the real vendor [00:29]
assbot [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 22600 @ 0.0007413 = 16.7534 BTC [+] {2} [00:29]
mircea_popescu so ? [00:29]
mircea_popescu you may recall a deffective automobile even if the owner is the owner not you [00:29]
bounce the owner will still have to voluntarily submit the product back to the vendor. [00:30]
mircea_popescu which he allegedly did by allowing it to be 0'd ? [00:30]
cazalla bounce: ;;seen mistere <<< after #b-a went +m, he said he was leaving [00:30]

* joecool has quit (Ping timeout: 265 seconds) [00:30]

bounce hm. I don't think they've been gone after, have they? [00:33]
BingoBoingo Maybe I prefer bootleg USB controllers? [00:33]
mircea_popescu bounce no idea, prolly not. kinda fringe [00:33]
bounce not sure if it'd make sense to even put the defense on first sale, but worth a shot. [00:34]
assbot [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 9200 @ 0.0007416 = 6.8227 BTC [+] [00:34]
bounce anyhow, I get where they're coming from but it's still a dodgy move. [00:35]
mircea_popescu well sure it is, no argument there. [00:35]
mircea_popescu my point was entirely that the first sale thing prolly won't take you far. [00:35]
* Nomos7 has quit (Quit: My MacBook Pro has gone to sleep. ZZZzzz…) [00:38]
bounce prolly not. tortuous to say the least. but lots of legal wrangling is exactly that. [00:38]
mircea_popescu inexactly that :) [00:38]
bounce you're saying legal eagles are a bunch of sloppy cunts? [00:39]
mircea_popescu you know, the same way "phenotypically divergent" does not necessarily mean an extremely skinny chick with extremely large tits and improbably long legs. it could also mean disproportionately large head [00:39]
BingoBoingo Magnuson–Moss Warranty Act would prolly be the way to protect your bootleg usb chips in US court [00:40]
mircea_popescu no, im just saying yours is the bad kind of tortured. [00:40]

bounce so save us four minutes and tell us why? [00:41]
mike_c sidechains! pegged to bitcoin! don't worry about the fact that it won't fucking work and the sidechains will collapse. we'll figure something out. [00:42]
bounce this that old thing again or did someone do a similar thing anew? [00:42]
mike_c also requires a "soft-fork" of bitcoin, but don't worry, that's not as bad as a hard fork. [00:42]

asciilifeform they fake it because even if you implement a standard device class (e.g. HID) you have to fake someone's. or you fork over ~4k usd to parasite scum for a 'legit' id. [00:51]
bounce well, yes, they probably should sell, say, fractional VIDs (VID+16 PIDs or so) for a nicely small fraction of the cost [00:52]
mircea_popescu like domain names ? [00:52]
bounce (there was a guy that did exactly that, expressly for hobbyist purposes, but he got shot down, I think) [00:53]

BingoBoingo jurov: Leveldb caused fork nominally [02:28]
mircea_popescu leveldb / poorly understood / not tested new code caused a fork [02:29]
mircea_popescu supposedly this was accidental. i never bought it. [02:29]
BingoBoingo nubbins`: Honestly, prolly best to remain greyscal friendly [02:29]
mircea_popescu leveldb in and of itself is whatever, maybe not the first choice for a db. leveldb as implemented by hearn was an attack on bitcoin. [02:29]

BingoBoingo What there's a temporary Vag shortage so queefing is out of the question [03:49]
bounce well yeah I'm not too happy bb bought it up, no matter how good it'd be for them. qnx was a bit floundering though, that with everyone running off to leen0x and no real hardware incentive for what makes qnx special. just throw more hardware at the problem and it's sorted. (the beancounters think) [03:50]
decimation 1.) blockchain gather/relay 2.) transaction accumulate/relay 3.) blockchain database 4.) own transaction receive/generate 5.) wallet crypto [03:50]
bounce then again, bb is floundering too. won't be the first time some company buys up something good for a bout of fleeing forward, goes down anyway and takes the good with it [03:51]

BingoBoingo bounce: So people can reproduce binaries [03:55]
asciilifeform bounce: we were discussing an ideally-portable and self-contained distributable build system. [03:55]

asciilifeform that never pulls - anything - off the net on its own accord. [03:55]
joecool BingoBoingo: 9? did you mean 7? [03:55]

BingoBoingo asciilifeform: By refering to Kimbrel as Sirian I mean as in from the Wasp, bowlegged with inhuman movements. Only way to describe the fucker. [05:54]

asciilifeform sign (gpg, yes) a plain ascii patch set. [07:44]
asciilifeform with totality of info visible to naked eye. [07:44]
asciilifeform yes, the pluses and minuses. [07:44]
mircea_popescu cazalla btw shouldn't be in there ? [07:44]
assbot S.MG IPO succeeded. Other statements. pe Trilema - Un blog de Mircea Popescu. [07:44]
decimation I suspect git or whatever could be hooked to operate on such patches [07:44]
undata asciilifeform: the hidden format being the git db? [07:44]
undata it's relatively simple [07:44]
asciilifeform who the hell cares if it's simple [07:45]
asciilifeform will you read it? in person? [07:45]
undata yeah [07:45]
asciilifeform or let 'git' do its thing [07:45]
undata I've done extensive work with it [07:45]
asciilifeform every time? [07:45]
undata it's just a key-value store of hashes [07:45]
asciilifeform why use 'git' then [07:45]
asciilifeform if you won't let it chug [07:45]
* Luke-Jr has quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer) [07:45]
mircea_popescu i don't think you two are discussing the same discussion. [07:45]
asciilifeform ^ [07:46]
undata asciilifeform: you're saying "what if git tainted my commit"? [07:46]
undata that's easily discovered [07:46]
asciilifeform no. [07:46]
asciilifeform that's not it at all [07:46]
undata then I'm off base; what were you saying? [07:46]
* AndrewJackson ( has joined #bitcoin-assets [07:47]
asciilifeform that the entirety of everything submitted by a contributor must be signed, every time, with his gpg key, and this fact be visible to the naked eye at all times [07:47]
asciilifeform naked eye means - no tools other than apparatus capable of displaying ascii text - plus one which can verify signature. [07:47]
undata I don't see why that's a requirement, but ok [07:47]
ben_vulpes base plus patchlist? [07:47]
undata ascii isn't the only format that's "right there for your eyes" [07:48]
asciilifeform pray tell what else [07:48]
undata I could show you every bit in my git db easily [07:48]
asciilifeform can i 'cat' it to my line printer? [07:48]
asciilifeform unchanged? [07:48]
mircea_popescu well ok, it could also be sung, or whatver. anyway, the central idea here is the signing. [07:48]
undata these are bizarre requirements [07:48]
asciilifeform no. [07:49]
undata you could sign via git hooks [07:49]
mircea_popescu undata you could sign via git hooks [07:49]
mircea_popescu similarly, you could sign via a website that has your pubkeys [07:49]
mircea_popescu would you ? [07:49]
asciilifeform i don't actually care if he signs via hook to his toilet flush lever [07:49]
ben_vulpes name of the game being dependency minimization. [07:49]
asciilifeform but i - won't. [07:49]
decimation the important part isn't the signature, it's the code [07:49]
mircea_popescu wait what ? [07:49]
asciilifeform ! [07:49]
mircea_popescu without signature, there's no code. [07:49]
mircea_popescu just a collection of shit someone crapped out. [07:49]
undata ben_vulpes: sure, that's a fine value, but every time someone tries to reinvent VCS, they either produce something terrible or git [07:49]
decimation of course you validate the signature [07:50]
ben_vulpes undata: git can be used for development [07:50]
ben_vulpes that's not a problem [07:50]
asciilifeform use git for private dildonic pleasure. or for playing with friends. i do. [07:50]
ben_vulpes but for releases, history of changes to bitcoin x [07:50]
mircea_popescu undata that's kinda why this is not the same discussion. you're thinking of the scratchpad. they're talking the exhibition. [07:50]
undata that makes more sense. In that case yes, I could see a very simple tool for auditing, signing, then releasing [07:51]
mircea_popescu right. [07:51]
mircea_popescu fuck, people use email to this day to exchange code. [07:51]
decimation I think people are complaining more aboug github than git [07:52]
asciilifeform i was hoping to rationally convince people that the totality of the project ought to be the mailing list, the totality of the mailing list ought to consist of gpg-signed ascii text, and that this includes patch sets - which, collectively, add up to the product. [07:52]
mircea_popescu can you intercept x's email for y, change subtly, release ? sure. [07:52]
mircea_popescu "nobody could be bothered to do that" [07:52]
undata mircea_popescu: I use the same for code review, even if it's a matter of emailing myself [07:52]
mircea_popescu sure. [07:52]
mircea_popescu until it becames a case of "we will hang whoever made this one byte error in bash" [07:52]
decimation asciilifeform: isn't the linux kernel still done this way? [07:52]
mircea_popescu then suddenly people discover that... wait... ?!!?!?! [07:52]
asciilifeform linus uses some turdolator or other [07:52]
mircea_popescu nah its email [07:52]
asciilifeform 'bitkeeper' ? [07:52]
* asciilifeform behind the times [07:52]
decimation nah he wrote git to ditch bitkeeper [07:53]
asciilifeform aha. [07:53]
decimation but I know they discuss important patches on the kernel list [07:53]
asciilifeform well there's the answer. [07:53]
asciilifeform not plain text. [07:53]
undata you can extract a nice looking patch from git, and even email it from there [07:53]
* jacoblyles has quit (Remote host closed the connection) [07:53]
asciilifeform and do all the linux contributors sign? i do not recall this being required [07:53]
mircea_popescu not rly. [07:53]
decimation Good question [07:53]
asciilifeform can extract != must exist canonically in that form [07:54]
undata asciilifeform: I'm saying it can provide the input to your envisioned system [07:54]
undata even automatically... via a hook. [07:54]
asciilifeform who even cares how each of us craps out his input [07:54]
undata anyhow, horse is starting to stink [07:54]
asciilifeform question is re: the canonical form. [07:54]
asciilifeform no, this horse is alive and well. [07:54]
* asciilifeform realizes that he is not very good at curing people of addiction to what feels to them as 'modernity' [07:55]
decimation asciilifeform: the bigger question is: who is the 'registrar' of the 'official version' - or does that merely exist in the private collection of each person's note? [07:55]
undata asciilifeform: explain; I'll listen. [07:55]
asciilifeform official version, if you like, is one (if any) that we (magic-29?) all agree to sign under. [07:56]
ben_vulpes anyhow, horse is starting to stink << what is this a reference to? [07:56]
undata ben_vulpes: dead horse, beaten [07:56]
ben_vulpes m ah [07:56]
mircea_popescu asciilifeform nah, "official version" is redefined from * this (static) to whatever one has most wot trust towards. [07:57]
asciilifeform in practice, the only possible result [07:57]
mircea_popescu so if version x is signed by people i know and version y is signed by people i don't know, x is official and fu. [07:57]
decimation right, it's in the 'eye of the beholder' [07:57]
mircea_popescu exactly. [07:57]
asciilifeform if 10 sign one, but never other, and 19 (plus ninjasp4mz0r) sign the remaining - clearly schism. [07:57]
undata mircea_popescu: interesting, a fork could emerge due to a breakdown of trust [07:57]
mircea_popescu no such thing as "official" "because we say so". who;'s we. [07:57]
undata that fits the social happenings well [07:57]
mircea_popescu undata more properly said : every breakdown of trust is a fork [07:57]
asciilifeform 'we's are illusory [07:57]
mircea_popescu rather than papering over breakdowns of trust with "foundations" and "chief scientistdom" [07:58]
mircea_popescu and this puts huge pressure on trusted nodes not to break the fucking trust [07:58]
decimation undata: no one here really minds having a different opinion than 99.999% of humanity [07:58]
mircea_popescu which is essential, because our enemies are putting a lot of pressure on them to break it [07:58]
undata my main thrust is that the thing will have to be structured in some way (a db) [07:58]
* Luke-Jr (~luke-jr@unaffiliated/luke-jr) has joined #bitcoin-assets [07:58]
mircea_popescu and you can't just expect "conscience" to resist indefinitely. [07:58]
undata doesn't have to be git [07:58]
ben_vulpes no db necessary [07:59]
asciilifeform at any rate, the fact that no one could really directly profit (imho) from this escapade - other than devils, were they to succeed - should keep things interesting [07:59]
ben_vulpes or rather [07:59]
mircea_popescu conscience is fluid. look at Luke-Jr's conscience : he lied about bfl delivering. look at gavin, etc. [07:59]
undata it could be a fancy db implemented atop the blockchain [07:59]
mircea_popescu whenever people's conscience is the only protection, the third reich is about to emerge. [07:59]
decimation asciilifeform: right, I envision it more as the collected correspondence of gentlemen scholars, rather than a profitable venture [07:59]
ben_vulpes undata: staaaahp [07:59]
mircea_popescu decimation yes. but actual gentlemen, rather than presumed gentlemen. [08:00]
mircea_popescu ie, people with titles. [08:00]
undata ben_vulpes: piles of ascii no, never, please no [08:00]
asciilifeform collected correspondence of gentlemen <<<<< [08:00]
asciilifeform undata will feel better if we 'gzip' them? [08:00]
asciilifeform then no longer piles of ascii. [08:00]
decimation folks are welcome to publish, index as they see fit [08:01]
undata I yield the balance of my time, haha [08:01]
mircea_popescu lol [08:01]
mircea_popescu i dunno what the hatred of ascii is from anyway. [08:01]
asciilifeform comes from, as i understand, 'xml' and other pseudo-humanreadable abominations [08:02]
mircea_popescu more like utf-8 i thought [08:02]
undata no, git is a distributed database [08:02]
undata not merely a format [08:02]
* asciilifeform is not ignorant of 'git' mechanics, uses it (sadly) every day [08:02]
asciilifeform as in, 7 days a week. [08:03]
cazalla mircea_popescu, where the facebook page and mockups for that?!? [08:03]
mircea_popescu lol [08:03]
cazalla maybe they meant to raise 50k facebook likes instead [08:04]
ben_vulpes i think then this discussion is settled. [08:04]
ben_vulpes there will be a base. [08:04]
mircea_popescu lol [08:04]
ben_vulpes signed patches will released. [08:04]
ben_vulpes decimation: bitcoind begs to be split into at least 3 programs << of which only 1 is necessary ! << for the record, what are the three and which the one? [08:05]
asciilifeform which one - the one that actually 'bitcoin'ates [08:05]
asciilifeform the one which menstruates guilade - flush it [08:06]
ben_vulpes what is the bitcoinating? the part that attaches to the network, downloads and verifies the blockchain? [08:06]
asciilifeform the unspeakable cthonian horror that remains - why even think of it [08:06]
mod6 asciilifeform: i like the idea of a cypherpunk-esq mailing list to propagate patches from a common release. [08:06]
asciilifeform ben_vulpes: the part that actually enables the things we like to do with the damn thing [08:07]
asciilifeform bitcoinate. [08:07]
mod6 this hasn't been done for some time, and probably needs to come back. [08:07]
asciilifeform it is the only way. [08:07]
* mod6 gets ready to fire up mutt! [08:07]
decimation asciilifeform: wouldn't it be a good idea for the privkey need not live in the same memory space as the rest of the code, for instance [08:08]
ben_vulpes decimation: a fantastic idea. [08:08]
ben_vulpes wallets should be built atop bitcoind or equivalent. [08:08]
asciilifeform decimation: in my (now very old) plan for rewrite, there were to be two machines [08:08]
asciilifeform connected with serial cable [08:09]
decimation aye [08:09]
decimation perhaps with a protocol validator in the middle [08:09]
asciilifeform but it - is not the topic [08:09]
asciilifeform topic was janitorial upkeep of classic bitcoind [08:09]
mircea_popescu connected with serial cable << this from reading up on old mpex material ? [08:09]
asciilifeform wait this was in there? [08:10]
mircea_popescu long long ago, in a galaxy far far away [08:10]
mod6 COIN WARZ [08:10]
mircea_popescu back when there weren't any enemies listening in on our lists [08:10]
mircea_popescu mpex was almost discussed [08:10]
asciilifeform it's an obvious idea, srsly [08:10]
asciilifeform or just to me [08:10]
mircea_popescu it is yes [08:10]
asciilifeform logic is one for all of us. [08:11]
asciilifeform like victory. [08:11]
* asciilifeform wonders if his entire life is alive somewhere in old mpex material. [08:12]
mircea_popescu the disadvantage of productivity is that it's 5am and the log is closing in on 1k lines. and yest it was nearly 3k. and jesus god it's a lot harder to go through when it's not mostly my own lines! i had no idea! [08:12]
mircea_popescu asciilifeform nah, im sure that's not the case, i never cut solid copper anythings. [08:13]
asciilifeform lol [08:13]
ben_vulpes mircea_popescu: welcome to my hell. [08:13]
mircea_popescu ben_vulpes cause normally i'm like, oh, logs, fancy that. but past few days it's been... omfg help me. [08:13]
asciilifeform protocol validator in the middle << people don't seem to get this. 'secure' is not a gigantic mechanized orchestra of quis custodiet ipsos custodes. [08:13]
mircea_popescu ^ [08:13]
asciilifeform it is 'fits in head.' and a few other things. [08:14]
mircea_popescu mechanized orchestra is a particularly good metaphore. because it never existed. [08:14]
mircea_popescu WHY did it never exist ? [08:14]
asciilifeform i asked my father as a boy [08:14]
decimation well, quite simply because the failure rate would be too high [08:14]
asciilifeform 'why no compressor for the jazz band?' [08:14]

mircea_popescu asciilifeform did he give you a sex answer ? [08:15]
decimation dijkstra would have been a fan of 'fits in head' [08:15]
ben_vulpes cazalla: i was derping with a colleague about btc payment processing recently. the topic: how to ensure the payment processor (he who tells the taco-delivery mechanism to release tacos) gets paid? [08:15]
asciilifeform dijkstra actually believed in proofs [08:15]
ben_vulpes our solution: one of the few actual uses for M/N signatures. [08:16]
asciilifeform he lived in the last days of an age of proofs [08:16]
mircea_popescu i'm kinda reminded of the jews on toilet joke. "is this work ?" [08:16]
decimation yeah but he also pretty much admits they are unworkable practically [08:16]
asciilifeform mircea_popescu: actually yes [08:16]
ben_vulpes funds sent to M/N address, both merchant and payment solution provider must agree upon processor fee and merchant share to disburse funds to each. [08:16]
mircea_popescu asciilifeform can't blame him. only way out of that one. [08:16]
ben_vulpes mind you, this is a pure-btc play. [08:16]
mircea_popescu otherwise it goes on forever, like the us puritan thought pattern. [08:17]
mircea_popescu ben_vulpes seems dubious to me. [08:17]
mircea_popescu you familiar with the three man committee to split a buck ? [08:17]
ben_vulpes no, thy enlightenment please [08:17]
mircea_popescu o wow. [08:17]
asciilifeform <<<< mechanized orchestra. required as that's my metaphor. [08:18]
assbot : - YouTube [08:18]
mircea_popescu so, me you and stan have to split a buck. i go : fuck stan, give me 50 cents i'll sign with you. [08:18]
kakobrekla there were to be two machines connected with serial cable < heh i have such setup with a buffer on the cable [08:18]
mircea_popescu you go to stan : hey listen, he's giving you nothing. take this 5 cents sign over to me. [08:18]
mircea_popescu basically it has no stable solution. [08:18]
mircea_popescu which is how and why the us political system does not work. [08:18]

ben_vulpes m=n [08:19]
mircea_popescu ben_vulpes no, n = 2 if there's no third. [08:19]
mircea_popescu shit. n = 1 is what i mean. [08:19]
ben_vulpes pardon? [08:19]
ben_vulpes both keys must sign for outputs to be valid. [08:19]

mircea_popescu just sign it from the beginning and be done with it. [08:25]
ben_vulpes insurance policy? [08:25]
decimation all this does seem to break down to something like "we want a computer to enforce a human language contract" which ain't gonna happen [08:25]
mircea_popescu dude. srsly ? [08:25]
mircea_popescu "insurance policy" ? "here's a car that doesn't work, and just to make sure, we welded to it a boat that also doesn't work" ? is this a way to live? [08:25]
mircea_popescu do something that works. [08:26]
ben_vulpes that's too big a leap for my tiny brain [08:26]
mircea_popescu ben_vulpes what's your favourite meal ? [08:27]
ben_vulpes boats and cars aside i think i get the "computer enforcement of human language contract" [08:27]

mircea_popescu but anyway, at issue was the misuse of "societies" to mean "groups", not of cannibalism. [09:32]
BingoBoingo Adlai: It isn't cannibalism if you merely plan to take them to the rendering plant for fuel and not the abbatoir for meat [09:32]
Adlai no, not according to the current dictionary definition of cannibalism [09:32]
decimation cooking someone in your stomach is different than cooking them in your car? [09:32]
Adlai though i'm misusing the term intentionally, my misuse is well-defined [09:33]
mircea_popescu BingoBoingo you're on a... slippery slope, so to speak. for most of history women were merely used to make more of them. [09:33]

Adlai which bile/ [09:40]
BingoBoingo mircea_popescu: Homo redditicus has trouble accepting it has an origin story [09:40]
mircea_popescu "While dimwitted, the Dependopotamus is a shrewd beast who knows that there is one surefire way to trap a man: Bear as many of his offspring as possible. Since having a baby in the military is free thanks to the dependency benefits, she’ll be in a constant state of hosting and developing new fetuses that she isn’t certain are from her husband or one of her many lovers." [09:41]
mircea_popescu this echoes an older argument brought by say shaw, in much blander prose. [09:41]
mircea_popescu sure, the female can be seen as a preditor. in that it ingests and keeps the sperm, sure. [09:41]
undata mircea_popescu: this is the insecurity of many men, that if they can't keep their woman, it must be the wretched whore's fault. [09:41]

mircea_popescu asciilifeform do rats own computers ? [20:24]
asciilifeform not usually [20:25]
asciilifeform though i've had my doubts [20:25]
mircea_popescu neither does my fuck you rich bitch., what now ? [20:25]
asciilifeform rat, however, often owns a rathole [20:25]
asciilifeform does the woman? [20:25]
asciilifeform 'rat' may even be an upgrade for her [20:25]
Vexual no monero [20:25]
mircea_popescu asciilifeform rat owns a rathole in the same sense she owns some sidewalk. [20:26]
mircea_popescu possession being nine tenths of the law and all that. [20:26]
asciilifeform 'fuck you money,' if i recall, has the following etymology. the idea that if you came into $fuckyou, you could utter 'fuck you' to the boss at the plant tomorrow, and continue to live at least as well (consumption) as presently, indefinitely [20:27]
mircea_popescu so she has it ? [20:28]
asciilifeform and most of the speakers are not street bums, and so aren't sitting on a floor one cannot fall through [20:28]
mircea_popescu but that's besides the point isn';t it. [20:28]
asciilifeform well it has a meaning - most folks aren't bums, and possibly don't even inhabit a mental space where bums exist (other than in the vaguely 'doomy' sense that death exists for them) [20:29]
asciilifeform to abuse mathematical parlance, bumhood is a 'degenerate case' [20:29]
Vexual the doom generation [20:31]
asciilifeform 'fuck you money' is a very real item for which folks have a very real longing - because in fact, it is simply the desire to be released from workschwitz and arbeit macht frei. [20:32]
asciilifeform people with even an elementary brain do understand that perhaps one in a thousand can be a rentier [20:33]

asciilifeform its fuck you money only until its not << yes, generally how fiat works [20:42]
asciilifeform but one could redefine 'fuck you' with an engineering margin [20:42]
asciilifeform such that, e.g., you can lose 90% of the principal and remain fuckyou-enabled [20:42]
kakobrekla you basically need 10 fuckoffs. [20:43]
chetty I always thought it had more to do with being willing to live without whatever to the extent you would say $fuckyou to the boss, doesn't have to be money [20:43]

assbot BitBet - Raul Gonzalez to play in NASL :: 0.12 B (59%) on Yes, 0.08 B (41%) on No | closed 2 days 18 hours ago [21:16]
mircea_popescu the bet says "to play". the guy... signed a contract. to play. next year. [21:16]
mircea_popescu so does this mean he IS playing or merely that he will be ? [21:16]
mircea_popescu BingoBoingo ^ [21:16]
mircea_popescu to abuse mathematical parlance, bumhood is a 'degenerate case' << but inasmuch as your argument rests on the "mental space" of the user, then therefore my observation IS satisfied, and indeed it's not a thing, but merely a figment of imagination. [21:17]
mircea_popescu note that the reality of the longing for the idol is not in question, nor does it rub off on the idol to make IT real. [21:17]
mircea_popescu its fuck you money only until its not. << fuck you meat!11 [21:18]
mircea_popescu kakobrekla, matter of how much you like the foot? or the shoe .. <<< she has a point, i've seen women cut foot for prada heels. [21:19]
asciilifeform mircea_popescu: prisoners may have different reasons to want out of the jail, but that does not make freedom a 'figment of imagination' - there is actually a world outside of the jail. [21:19]
* assbot gives voice to BingoBoingo [21:19]
BingoBoingo mircea_popescu: My gut says it resolves at yes if he actually... starts playing [21:20]
mircea_popescu but that there's a world does not actually give the prisoner's notion of "freedom" any legs. [21:20]
mircea_popescu i mean, there's land where "the indies" were supposed to be, too. that doesn't mean columbus found india. [21:20]
Vexual he had a crack [21:21]
mircea_popescu Vexual speaking of which, who is the more eco-friendly ? the drug dealer or the whore ? [21:21]
Vexual i think we should get katy pery in here [21:21]
Vexual i guess the whore [21:22]
Vexual she only east and poops [21:22]

mircea_popescu Vexual the whore. because she reuses her crack. [21:22]

asciilifeform even the comparatively smaller undertaking i'm presently engaged in - still doesn't come cheap.

asciilifeform The20YearIRCloud: s.nsa. first project is a small electronic device, 'cardano.' [22:36]
undata mircea_popescu: how does that describe what I've said, in your view? [22:36]
asciilifeform The20YearIRCloud: co-authored with mircea_popescu. [22:37]
mircea_popescu well, the problem with "discussing the art of living" is diogenes. as in, discussion requires common ground. which isn't a given. [22:37]
undata mircea_popescu: doesn't everyone presume his way of living best, or he'd do otherwise? [22:37]
mircea_popescu ask asciilifeform ? [22:38]
mircea_popescu "best" is a complex concept. [22:38]
bounce then I'll take bestest [22:38]
asciilifeform lol i was beginning to think that diogenes was mentioned precisely because my 'best' is as odd as his was. [22:39]
mircea_popescu but on anecdotic evidence, whether people believe that or don't is more of an indicator of whether the polis is on the upswing or downswing than anything personal. [22:39]
mircea_popescu asciilifeform except his is the exact opposite of odd. his best is even. [22:39]
asciilifeform ahaha [22:39]
mircea_popescu anyway, you;ll appreciate i didn't bring him up in the definition of "fuck you rich" [22:39]
asciilifeform doesn't everyone presume his way of living best, or he'd do otherwise << 'you go to war with the enemy you have, not the enemy you wish you had' [22:39]
asciilifeform lol [22:40]
mircea_popescu the point is still there, tho. fuck you rich is about fuck you, not about rich. [22:40]
bounce implying people wish to be fucked over? [22:40]
kakobrekla no [22:40]
kakobrekla thats why they dont live in the barrels [22:40]
kakobrekla for the most part [22:40]
mircea_popescu meyer lanski famously told some older street thoughs, as a 12 yo, "you get nuttin' for nuttin'". that's all it is. at 12 he's as rich as me telling the sec how to behave. [22:41]
asciilifeform ^ yes. just as freedom may or may not be about a hacksaw, depending on whether one is in prison, and of what material the prison is made (a pair of clippers may suffice for a savage rope cage, etc.) [22:41]
asciilifeform (re: 'about fuckyou not the rich') [22:41]
undata one minute god-kings; the next liberty [22:41]
undata haha [22:41]
kakobrekla people slave for not to slave [22:41]
mircea_popescu best slavery there is. [22:41]
* undata processes on that last bit for a moment [22:42]
kakobrekla anyway, the recipe is to say fuck you, go in the barrel and then if you like climb out of it while keeping the finger raised [22:44]
mircea_popescu kakobrekla the problem wih that approach is that it's literally indistinguishable from the tack of the 16yo kid in the video. [22:45]
asciilifeform here's a random example of what it costs to effectively think about problems in the physical sciences, without a Crown license. [22:46]
undata obviously someone thought it worth writing about the barrel or you wouldn't be saying so. [22:46]
undata *everything* is stated with the implicit underlying statement that the worldview in which the statement was made is true. [22:46]
mircea_popescu selfless sacrifice on the altar of satisfying the societal expectation. [22:46]
asciilifeform i have to pay several 100 usd / yrs. to access library. [22:46]

bounce "free" as in part of the crushing tuitition debt package deal [22:48]
asciilifeform well yes. [22:48]
asciilifeform rolled into that particular chumpatronic prize. [22:48]
mircea_popescu kakobrekla well that's the thing, they don';t. [22:48]
kakobrekla so is all good. [22:48]
asciilifeform or into benefit package of being a loyal servant of Crown 'scientocracy' (professional academics) [22:48]
mircea_popescu another attempt: all statements are implicitly advocacy. << only for the utilitarian/methodist/usretardian school of thought. [22:48]
asciilifeform if you're a civilian - you pay. [22:48]
asciilifeform and pay. [22:48]
mircea_popescu but otherwise this is what the existentialists used to call "petit burgeois" [22:48]
bounce a reasonable solution for "publish or perish" would be useful [22:49]
mircea_popescu bounce "no tax money spent on education" is a solution. [22:49]
mircea_popescu be rich or stfu and work, science is not for "the people". [22:49]
asciilifeform bounce: they used to at least let people into the libraries without membership (though could not check out books, or read - the now all - electronic - journals.) but the bums began to nest there. [22:49]
bounce bit of a cop out. can't we do better? [22:49]
mircea_popescu who's "we" ? [22:50]
mircea_popescu but no, we can't do better, because otherwise the fucking bums start nesting there. [22:50]
asciilifeform 'once there was The People, terror gave it birth... once there was The People, and it made a Hell of Earth...' (kipling?) [22:50]
mircea_popescu like, the sort of people churning out "science" about stuff. [22:50]
asciilifeform (:re we) [22:50]
asciilifeform i give the library tidbit as an example of what, in my mind, 'not living as rat' involves [22:51]
undata if only there were some way to cheaply stockpile and grant access to documents. [22:51]
asciilifeform for a human vegetable, who only needs to afford a hovel to eat, shit, and fuck in, and a tv screen - different cost. [22:51]

mircea_popescu what is talent ? [22:52]
mircea_popescu asciilifeform i think that cost may be more than a few hundies a year. [22:52]
asciilifeform that's library alone [22:52]
The20YearIRCloud asciilifeform: is it that way around the world? I know it is here - bums everywhere at the library [22:52]
asciilifeform (the figure above) [22:52]
mircea_popescu The20YearIRCloud amusingly, bums here mostly sleep in banks. [22:53]
mircea_popescu i kinda suspect where bums sleep is indicative of societal notions [22:53]
kakobrekla guard the safes yo [22:53]

asciilifeform usually, entire floors empty. [22:53]
asciilifeform so perfect. [22:53]
mircea_popescu i wonder how many social studies chicks fuck bums because they're bums. [22:54]
mircea_popescu 1 a year ? 100 ? 10000 ? [22:54]
asciilifeform freshly-minted bums (or well-kept hobos) likely. [22:54]
undata mircea_popescu: again, anyone speaking about anything intends for the listener to be influenced by the content. [22:54]
asciilifeform the kind that walked in the same suit for a decade - less plausible [22:54]
undata I can't see how it could be any other way. [22:54]

asciilifeform banks 24/7 << story. where i live, you can walk into the vestibule of a bank (where the atm often lives, on 'bad streets') using a magnetic card. implication is that it must be the bank's - but this is false. [22:57]

asciilifeform etc [22:59]
