thestringpuller: whoa. ethereum chain is committing warfare. [09:19]
shinohai: yup [09:27]
shinohai: or "lol, warfare" [09:27]
thestringpuller: All the ether and DAO huffers were like, "We are just doing this cause we have no other choice! We have to fork cause Vitalik told us Ethereum dies if we dont!" [09:43]
thestringpuller: okay so they fork but still try to keep the moral high ground [09:43]
thestringpuller: Then they begin to attack the competing chain, so where is the moral high ground now? [09:44]
thestringpuller: so i just realized something [10:08]
thestringpuller: the dao attacker can now even the playing field [10:09]
thestringpuller: if poloniex opens up margin trading between ETH/ETC pairs [10:09]
thestringpuller: dao attacker would just short normal ethereum [10:10]

mircea_popescu: "This year, so far, I have completed and published 36 titles and hope to wrap up eight more next month." << da fuck ? what's at work here, does he title his paragraphs individually ? there's enough articles to fill maybe half a book, is he not publishing most of his material ? [11:02]
mircea_popescu: what are these titles, pdf files ? [11:02]
mircea_popescu: oh i get it, guy's excited that ie, most traffix since we've started linking him. people and numbers, be they random or anything else. [11:05]
thestringpuller: in other lulz, Emin Gün Sirer, has gone full derp now. Tweets: "Anyone can fork any chain at any time." [11:06]
mircea_popescu: tell him i'll fork his ugly goatherding mother. [11:07]
mircea_popescu: fucking idiots. [11:07]
mircea_popescu: "8. The police are more likely to attack black suspects than whites. Untrue. [Look, Tyrone 4 times as many pale faces are killed by pigs every year than are blacks." << this is a broken argument. if there's one baby and a hundred sluts and the police kills one baby and one slut, it is therefore fair to say the police is more likely to attack babies than sluts. [11:07]
mircea_popescu: there's only 1/9 or so black dudes around in the us, prolly even less seeing how illegals are mostly non black and blacks don't have enough skillz to even be illegal in the first place. so then 1/4 ain't enough. [11:08]
mircea_popescu: 9 is nonsense also, but too complicated sociology involved to be worth the stating. [11:09]
thestringpuller: that's an interesting point. how is it that blacks are shot more often than their majority counterparts? [11:19]
BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> << this is pretty bad news, innit. just like for any other criminal gang. << Honestly this one kinda seems intentional for the social engineering value [11:27]

BingoBoingo: Has aspies, black man named Charles, too many lulz almost to be purely coincidental [11:28]
mircea_popescu: heh [11:29]
mircea_popescu: thestringpuller because they're poorer, which makes them more frequently be in the kill zone (do man-hours spent being a ghetto prop for each pop and see) and cowardlier, which makes them more frequently misproject their threat footprint. (ie, whites carry concealed or discreetly, loaded weapons blacks carry visibly and loudly unloaded, often not even functional, or useful weapons - cue the derp with the assault rifle in [11:31]
mircea_popescu: the bathroom.) [11:31]
mircea_popescu: all in all i'd guess 1/4 is just about fair, really, but from this level of zoom-out the queen of england seems somewhat hot and hilary clinton seems like she might have a chance. [11:32]
BingoBoingo: Actually I though the stats came out and blacks WEREN'T shot more often. Now they were beat more often and suffered every other many of humiliation far more often, but the rate of shooting was the same. [11:34]
mircea_popescu: i didn't really follow the matter. maybe. [11:34]
BingoBoingo: Someone actually did the numbers on shootings over some period of time. Poor white males get shot most, as they always have been. [11:36]
mircea_popescu: and forever should be. [11:37]
BingoBoingo: Amen [11:38]

BingoBoingo: [11:41]
mircea_popescu: re that : imagine the lulz when a) turns out the miners attack the "good" fork and b) the legal liability on the head of mit discussed yesterday STILL DOESNT GO AWAY. [11:45]
* mircea_popescu waves at asciilifeform, now i'll forever reference as "that article that cost me 50mn to write, according to alf's data." [11:46]
BingoBoingo: lol [11:50]
thestringpuller: looks like the classic chain is picking up hashpower. difficulty is skyrocketing. [11:52]
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo no but he gotta learn the importance of giving the idiots time to invest themselves in the wrong side of the dispute. [11:53]
mircea_popescu: obv next week it'll be all "oh we never said eth fork worked and therefore bitcoin should blablabla". BUT [11:54]
mircea_popescu: what they say only matters when it hurts them. [11:54]
mircea_popescu: that's why it's called "legal proceedings" [11:54]
BingoBoingo: Deese Der Derp Days Durr Derp Lives [11:54]
thestringpuller: i attribute this to lack of patience. everyone jumps the gun, instead of "wait and see approach". The Silicon Valley approach to "move quick and break thigns as long as you make fake money" seems to be infecting the entire world. [11:55]
thestringpuller: meanwhile "NO ONE COULD HAVE PREDICTED!!!!!!!!!!111" [11:55]
thestringpuller: when it was over a year ago [11:55]
BingoBoingo: Which is all fine when its your own things but when you tell other people you are doing this thing to their things it gets messy [11:55]
mircea_popescu: nah, it's a very strict "look at the upside only" nonsense, which is what passes for "critical thinking" in the usg concentration camp. and HAS TO, it's not that usg is evil, is that the stupidity of the muppets in a socialist state IS REQUIRED. they MUST only see the upside, else their entire nonsensical "State" stops working. [12:00]
mircea_popescu: this however leaves them very fucking exposed, because they wet panties over "oh, hard fork ethereum will set such great example!!1eleven". it will. for whom ? [12:01]
mircea_popescu: that's where "nobody could have predicted" cuts in : nobody THAT WAS A GOOD SOCIALIST DERP could have predicted, because in order to be a socialist derp it is verboten to consider the downside. of anything. [12:01]
mircea_popescu: because if you do consider undersides, socialism becomes a laughable proposition. but if you don't... why, best system evar! [12:01]
thestringpuller: reminds me of an article I read about "successful people" and that when you read a success story you only read about their successes, not their failures. the avoidance of failure in this culture is profound. [12:01]
thestringpuller: to the point i think people actually dress up failure as "success" [12:02]
mircea_popescu: if it were avoidance of failuire per se, at least it'd be something. but it is avoidance OF THE REPRESENTATION of failure. it's not that they try not to fail they try to not think about failing in any way. [12:02]
mircea_popescu: a cognitive misprocess which virtually ensures failure. [12:02]
mircea_popescu: nobody ever succeeded yet in the history of human life but by avoiding failing. [12:02]
thestringpuller: aha. so more of the embracing of failure (if it so happens), and learning from it. [12:03]
mircea_popescu: no, more of "fuck, if we try a fork and we get overrun we're fucked - not only the legal mess we're in doesn't improve, but we lose control altogether" [12:04]
thestringpuller: oh yea. in this scenario it seems like there were many decisions made without evaluating potential aftermath. [12:05]
mircea_popescu: how do they get married ? "oh, wouldn't this woman be hot if she were hot ?" "she's a neurotic mess, and unable to stand on her own" "yes but IF!" [12:07]
mircea_popescu: how do they buy a house ? "oh wouldn't this be a great house if it were a great house ?" "you don't get title, the credit terms are insane, the interest is massively overpriced, you give away all negotiating position and the house is a shitfarm in a shithole" "YES BUT IF!" [12:07]
thestringpuller: hey! if the streets can teach you anything it should be, "you can't turn a ho into a housewife" [12:08]
mircea_popescu: how do they do anything they do ? [12:08]
mircea_popescu: The bad thing about television is that everybody you see on television is doing something better than what you're doing. Did you ever see anybody on TV like just sliding off the front of the sofa with potato chip crumbs on their face? Some people have a little too much fun on television: the soda commercial people - where do they summon this enthusiasm? Have you seen them? "We have soda, we have soda, we have soda", jumping, [12:08]
mircea_popescu: laughing, flying through the air - it's a can of soda. Have you ever been standing there and you're watching TV and you're drinking the exact same product that they're advertising right there on TV, and it's like, you know, they're spiking volleyballs, jetskiing, girls in bikinis and I'm standing there - "Maybe I'm putting too much ice in mine." [12:08]
mircea_popescu: the "marketing educated mind". [12:08]
mircea_popescu: hence memes - the natural byproduct of the MEM. [12:08]
thestringpuller: oh god, now I'm going to go on a seinfeld bender. [12:10]
mircea_popescu: laters. [12:10]
BingoBoingo: In other huffing news [12:17]
BingoBoingo: "They are dumb and giving you free water. I would make a wetlands, build a pond, or divert it all to a new garden. I'd also threaten to sue and demand they fund said project. That way you get a water source and a new garden installation." [12:18]
BingoBoingo: "I get your point, but I'm in central North Carolina where we generally don't have water shortage problems, and I don't really want my side yard to become a swamp and mosquito breeding ground. " [12:18]

asciilifeform: ah ok yes [13:00]
asciilifeform: the specific number tripped me [13:01]
mircea_popescu: :p [13:01]
mircea_popescu: it's the official value attached to the entirely worthless bundle of tokens in question. [13:02]
* asciilifeform avoided knowing this, somehow, possibly because the fictional figure in question got gc'd in my head as soon as it entered [13:03]
mircea_popescu: actually thestringpuller has a decent piece on some other scamcoin explaining how this "per token value with a cap" works. what was it called, steaming-pile-of-shit ? something like this. [13:04]
mircea_popescu: "worth a dollar each up to a total of fiddy bucks there's ten million circulating" [13:04]
mircea_popescu: if you recall the workings of "ration cards" during famine, you pretty much got the whole scheme of this "technological advance" [13:04]
* asciilifeform never actually believed in stock valuations, either of good or evil they are like the voltage on a dead lithium battery, put on a real load and it --> 0 quickly [13:05]
mircea_popescu: ancient chinese tech. [13:05]
mircea_popescu: battery actually excellent model. "this provides 10kV, for a total 0.1VA energy draw" [13:06]
asciilifeform: ~every watch battery that hits the junkyard has still ~nominal voltage. [13:06]
mircea_popescu: aha. [13:06]

ben_vulpes: asciilifeform: primarily interested in modeling the blockchain succinctly in sql. various webthingers will be a natural product. [13:30]

asciilifeform: hopefully ben_vulpes doesn't need this thing to work in real time. [13:31]
asciilifeform: sql-anything is snail-slow. [13:32]
asciilifeform: (by bitcoin standards, where the number of queries per second is not under your control) [13:32]
mircea_popescu: actually this is pretty valid research ground for fixing sql. [13:33]
ben_vulpes: nah, this isn't for block validation or anything. [13:33]
ben_vulpes: but i am going to look into what indexing on transaction hash does to both disk utilization and lookup speed. [13:33]

a111: 1 results for "", [14:17]
phf: it probably shouldn't count the query itself? [14:19]
mircea_popescu: phf i thought about that. if it doesn't, it should really simply ignore $s lines when searching. the problem is that sometimes searches carry metasyntactic value. [14:23]
mircea_popescu: best leave it as is, human user ignores the $s if he wants to [14:23]

mats: even under the mp premise that there is no real money in play here - dueling forks cannot possibly go well for public idiot confidence in the scheme [15:54]
BingoBoingo: The part where they had the classic ethereum anyways and likely wanted to head off the pain in court by giving the tokens to the victims they tried to steal them from when they first decided to pretend the tokens didn't exist. [15:55]

mod6: So tried out a few different things with signing the artifacts: [22:44]
mod6: 1. made base64 encodings with `uuencode -m` [22:45]
mod6: 2. used `gpg --armor --sign` [22:45]
mod6: it turns out that the base64 encodings are ~5-10k bytes larger, it's pretty close, but it's nice with the `gpg --armor --sign` since you can verify and extract all in one step. [22:46]
mod6: I had shinohai and trinque both check my signed files and they confirm that it looks good (i tested on a variety of env's myself) [22:47]
mod6: For instance, here's trinque's results: [22:47]
mod6: So was thinking, make these four as deeds, then create a follow on deed that is a disclaimer that references the four artifact deeds - stating that the archive extracted will have the following hashes and that my signature doesn't declare that I have written or read the code. Something to that effect. [22:49]
mod6: Think that sounds ok? [22:49]
BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> reignited bromantic passion ahahaha << Well Merkel might have many things, but one of them is not going to be "romance" unless preceeded by the letter b [23:09]

mircea_popescu: mod6 how do you add comment with armor ? [23:46]
mircea_popescu: no good with the "reference" the thing, because you can get the thing without the reference, see ? [23:46]
mircea_popescu: and in other train-ing, [23:52]
mod6: <+mircea_popescu> mod6 how do you add comment with armor ? << yeah, there'd be no comment in the gpg armor'd artifacts. this would only be possible with using the uuencoded archives, placing a comment in the top, and then clearsigning the whole thing. [23:55]
mod6: which, was my first trial. the only thing about this approach is that then to extract (uudecode), one must strip out the clearsigning text as well as the comment. not horrible, just an extra step. [23:56]
mod6: <+mircea_popescu> no good with the "reference" the thing, because you can get the thing without the reference, see ? << very much agree. [23:56]
mircea_popescu: yeah. [23:56]
mod6: i'll prepare them in this way, and re-discuss when i have 'em. probably in a day or two. [23:57]
mod6: thanks for your input! [23:58]
