ben_vulpes * asciilifeform [] knows how/why but still bewildered that no one has at any point seen it fit to bolt on basic sanity << features, bro [00:00]
ben_vulpes asciilifeform: "block height" << excellent question [00:00]
mircea_popescu 0.5.3 was march-ish 2012. about 170k [00:02]
ben_vulpes "git" shows sun march 11 2012 as last commit at ref tagged as v0.5.3 [00:02]
mircea_popescu nah pretty sure it was spring. [00:03]
ben_vulpes march *is* spring [00:03]
mircea_popescu o nm i read the 11th as a month [00:03]
mircea_popescu march yes. [00:03]
mircea_popescu the logical thing to do, for it, would be to jettison the entire orphanage if approaching the hard limit << this may be a good idea, if actually something's needed. [00:04]

asciilifeform needs replacement std::allocator - proggy is not normally aware of own footprint [00:06]
mircea_popescu myeah. [00:06]
* OneNomos has quit (Remote host closed the connection) [00:06]
* ben_vulpes just observed an interesting [00:07]
asciilifeform even if for some peculiar reason it were not possible to reduce consumption, the thing ought to know when about to be killed - and shoot itself in the head with some decorum, rather than wait [00:07]
ben_vulpes toolbox on the table has a top tray and a bottom tray, connected by parallel braces, mounted at identically-spaced points on both trays. trays move on an arc defined by mechanisms constraints. [00:08]
* asciilifeform has one of these [00:08]
ben_vulpes there's an interesting configuration of the trays where the center of gravity of the top tray is balances the CoG of the bottom tray. this requires torquing the whole assembly such that the CoG's go in a funny place. [00:09]
hanbot ben_vulpes it's a trap! [00:10]
mircea_popescu vulpes is home alone and trying to find alternative passtimes to masturbation. [00:10]
ben_vulpes resulting in the thing resting at the unstable point at the top of the arc. [00:10]
ben_vulpes i'd post a pic but...le "smart"phone. [00:11]
ben_vulpes anyways, the parallels between how bitcoind only accidentally works and misc odd behaviors of this ancient floppy plastic toolbox are very apparent to me at precisely this moment. [00:11]
ben_vulpes a thing i learned about engineering when i was...oh, six...was that the steam engine doesn't just work because doodz sat and tweaked at it until everything went around just rightly. [00:12]
ben_vulpes no [00:12]
ben_vulpes someone *designed* each and every mechanism to work together. [00:12]
ben_vulpes if you'll forgive the rant, this is what the satoshi codebase lacks. [00:12]
ben_vulpes a coherent vision of how all of the parts interact, the emergent behaviors of the system and a robustish bit of software that can make sense of the system. [00:13]
mircea_popescu dude. [00:14]
mircea_popescu it's a prototype. [00:14]
mircea_popescu it was never seriously supposed to work, and it was specifically not intended to be used. [00:14]
mircea_popescu but... "the community" [00:14]
ben_vulpes once it worked, though, it was doomed to work. [00:15]
ben_vulpes "software never fails", and so on. [00:15]
mircea_popescu asciilifeform well actually, the thing could just look at how much memory it can allocate and then never outpace it. [00:15]
mircea_popescu ben_vulpes yeah. [00:15]
ben_vulpes kinda fascinating [00:16]
* teek ( has joined #bitcoin-assets [00:16]
ben_vulpes it's almost as though the satoshi codebase were a projection of software that knows how to talk to the one! true! bitcoin protocol. [00:16]
mircea_popescu something simple like, "whenever a parentless block is handed over the retaining of which would cause memory pool for holding parentless blocks to be overrun, a) drop the handed block ; b) close the connection and ban that peer for half hour ; c) discard all chains of parentless blocks longer than six items ; d) connect again" [00:17]
mircea_popescu !up teek [00:17]
-assbot- You voiced teek for 30 minutes. [00:17]
* assbot gives voice to teek [00:17]
ben_vulpes should really ask for specific blocks and drop all unasked for [00:18]
mircea_popescu this ensures that trying to ram-dos the node would require as many different nodes as a fifth of the total number of blocks it can hold. [00:18]
mircea_popescu ben_vulpes that's not how this works tho [00:19]
ben_vulpes pardon? [00:19]
ben_vulpes mircea_popescu: pardon? [00:19]
mircea_popescu you don't ask for bloicks [00:19]

asciilifeform laugh if you will, but i'm still trying to apprehend what it is 'most people' actually -do- with their time [01:32]

mircea_popescu but notice the guy who essentially says, "i can not eat this butter because it doesn't come in a properly labelled box" [01:58]
mircea_popescu i have seen this irl, incidentally. lots of traditional products come in no box. such as smoked trout in pine leaf, or a certain type of cheese in pine bark [01:59]
mircea_popescu or on it goes. [01:59]

pete_dushenski + public health [04:28]
pete_dushenski “The human mating system is extremely flexible,” Bernard Chapais of the University of Montreal wrote in a recent review in Evolutionary Anthropology. Only 17 percent of human cultures are strictly monogamous. The vast majority of human societies embrace a mix of marriage types, with some people practicing monogamy and others polygamy. [04:28]
mircea_popescu that much is true. [04:29]
mircea_popescu there's probably a population somewhere in history that actually reproduced by flies carring sperm from splooge puddles into fetid snatches. [04:29]
pete_dushenski lol but of course, the retardosearchers go on to make unwarranted conclusions: [04:31]
pete_dushenski “Once monogamy has evolved, then male care is far more likely,” Dr. Opie said. [04:31]
pete_dushenski Once a monogamous primate father starts to stick around, he has the opportunity to raise the odds that his offspring will survive. He can carry them, groom their fur and protect them from attacks. [04:31]
pete_dushenski In our own lineage, however, fathers went further. They had evolved the ability to hunt and scavenge meat, and they were supplying some of that food to their children. “They may have gone beyond what is normal for monogamous primates,” said Dr. Opie. [04:31]
mircea_popescu as far as the fabled 17% strictly monogamous cultures go... i very much doubt this ever happened. no culture in history was strictly monogamous for a strict definition of strictly. [04:31]
* OneFixt_ (~OneFixt@unaffiliated/onefixt) has joined #bitcoin-assets [04:31]
pete_dushenski The extra supply of protein and calories that human children started to receive is widely considered a watershed moment in our evolution. It could explain why we have brains far bigger than other mammals. [04:31]
pete_dushenski Brains are hungry organs, demanding 20 times more calories than a similar piece of muscle. Only with a steady supply of energy-rich meat, Dr. Opie suggests, were we able to evolve big brains — and all the mental capacities that come with it. [04:31]
pete_dushenski Because of monogamy, Dr. Opie said, “This could be how humans were able to push through a ceiling in terms of brain size.” [04:31]
mircea_popescu absolute nonsense. [04:31]
pete_dushenski this is what taxdollars get you [04:32]
mircea_popescu actually i've not paid any tax dollars, but i appreciate teh intent. [04:33]
mircea_popescu in any case ; meat is not particularly energetic. fat is, but fat is widely available outside of animals : one could for instance eat nothing but aguacate and become really really smart - except it doesn't work in practice. [04:34]
pete_dushenski at least not for south americans [04:34]
mircea_popescu so... this guy is discussing interesting and otherwise important matters with all the astuteness of a virgin 15 yo girl from nantucket. [04:34]

mircea_popescu actually... i guess bernard chapais actually is a 15 yo from nantucket. [04:34]
mircea_popescu in any case there's no way to tell the difference. [04:35]
* OneFixt has quit (Ping timeout: 272 seconds) [04:35]
mircea_popescu for that matter, brain size per se is not well related to energetic consumption, nor to cognitive function for that matter. whales have some of the largest brains in the animalia kingdom, and somehow they're not writing stupid papers about 15yo virgin prisses. [04:36]
pete_dushenski it's not at all clear that larger brains are the function of a social behaviour, nor why they should be [04:36]

pete_dushenski the term: stereotype [06:02]
mircea_popescu anyway, to save teh noobs : in no case am i proposing that the bizarro atrocities of the muslims, stereotypically grouped above under " stoning innocent girls in the road" are an effectual approach to the problem [of overrepresentation of woman in their own mental space]. it clearly doesn't work, but then again it's clearly what they're trying. and obviously it's not the god damned women's fault that dudes are all hang [06:05]

BingoBoingo BingoBoingo that is actually the theory i've "come up with" myself. << I've accepted that the American conditioning to remove all the flavors if it isn't explicitly done to cultivate stupid, continues with stupid accepted as a positive side effect. [18:16]
cjc mircea_popescu, The node I connect to in Chicago has been down inconveniently quite a bit in 2014, My observation of #freenode staffer availability in the past two months has been it is hit or miss for new users requesting cloaks and such. [18:18]
mircea_popescu meant more like over the past half decade. [18:18]
cjc Yes, when I started coming here before I registered my nick in 2003 -- [18:19]
cjc There were developers here and like minded people seeking collaboration. [18:19]
cjc We now find many more casual users with a "multi-chat" Facebook type desire to use the network. [18:19]
cjc Its not really held up to the focus as established, perhaps due to insufficient moderation or self enforcement. [18:19]
cjc What are your thoughts? [18:20]
mircea_popescu seems to me kinda drifting without rudder, hoping it won't meet any serious icebergs. [18:20]
cjc Frankly, Freenode would be akin to one of the last standing freenets of the early 90s. If there was ever a problem with regard to insufficient support for the network monetarily -- [18:22]
cjc I do not believe there would be a problem soliciting donations from users who find this the place to host their projects and to meet and talk with others about the same. [18:23]

BingoBoingo kakobrekla: Yeah, just dunno how that qualifies him to say Bitcoin companie should just stop competing with each other and then dissolve when they solve their problems [23:10]

mircea_popescu i hope they had a new york clause in their contract, and griesa gets to judge it [23:21]
mircea_popescu so he can say that greece is right. unlike argentina. [23:21]

mats asciilifeform: any recommendations for a logic analyzer? preferably something sub $1k [23:25]
asciilifeform mats: 'rigol' ds1102d [23:26]
mats thanks [23:26]
asciilifeform if you -just- need logic analyzer, not scope, [23:26]
asciilifeform theer is an 'open bench logic sniffer' (more or less naked fpga, ~50 usd) [23:26]
asciilifeform but [23:26]
asciilifeform afaik nobody's written any usable proggy for it [23:26]
asciilifeform (author shat out a steaming java heap) [23:27]
asciilifeform if you can spare ~1k usd, get the 'rigol' [23:27]
asciilifeform it wurks. [23:27]
mats i've heard good things about saleae logic, have you used it? [23:27]

asciilifeform no, haven't used it, can't see why pay real money for ~25MHz ceiling [23:29]

assbot Saleae Logic. The logic analyzer you'll love to use. ... ( ) [23:29]
asciilifeform 'This product is no longer available for purchase' [23:30]
asciilifeform and is that a closed-source turd i see. [23:31]
mats hm. [23:31]
asciilifeform if all you need is something that will decode, e.g., spi, at a few 100 kHz, get the ubiquitous 'bus pirate' [23:33]
mats closed-source seems normal from the researching ive done [23:33]
asciilifeform winblows-only is also 'normal' [23:33]
asciilifeform but it is possible to get decent (if not 'mazerati'-grade) instrumentation without swallowing winblows [23:34]
asciilifeform 'rigol' for instance [23:34]

mats some curmudgeon operating an exit node could diddle your traffic. [23:59]
BingoBoingo onewhosits: More just some vandal has a bot that lurks and DoS's connections as it seens them join. Cloak should be enough to defeat that. To connect with Tor you'd need a cloak anyway. [23:59]
