flatlinejim: #a ? is that just shorthand for the channel?
asciilifeform: yea
flatlinejim: right
flatlinejim: i didn't even read the topic to be honest
flatlinejim: it just sounded weird enough
flatlinejim: :P
asciilifeform: i highly rec to read the topic
flatlinejim: no sweet ascii art i see :P
flatlinejim: I read the important part
flatlinejim: and introduced myself
asciilifeform: flatlinejim: so, how found the chan, and which topics interested in ?
flatlinejim: i found it via /list
flatlinejim: and i've started using IRC more since starting a cyber security course
asciilifeform: flatlinejim: are you a uni student ?
flatlinejim: not quite uni no.... more like trade training
asciilifeform: ah. nuffinwrong with that
flatlinejim: i'm enjoying :)
flatlinejim: which helps
asciilifeform: flatlinejim: most of the people in #a are here either via my www, or folx i collaborated with in the past elsewhere.
flatlinejim: oic
asciilifeform: flatlinejim: it's a quite low-traffic chan. there is a www log you can browse & search. you may find past threads to be of interest, depending on what yer interested in.
flatlinejim: cool
flatlinejim: thanks for taking the time to fill me in
flatlinejim: that looks way too technical for me to comprehend o.o
asciilifeform: flatlinejim: make use of 'search all' button, there are various threads in older chans you may find interesting.
asciilifeform: flatlinejim: what are you learning at your school ? reversing, 'ida, etc. ?
flatlinejim: it's pretty introductory at the moment, tomorrow's class is mostly designing a small network
flatlinejim: they let us dabble in some pen testing last semester
flatlinejim: probably beacause it is more interesting
flatlinejim: get the kids hooked
asciilifeform: my pov re 'security' ftr.
flatlinejim: ooh
flatlinejim: that does look interesting
flatlinejim: sweet
flatlinejim: thank you

shinohai: $uptime
btcinfobot: The bot has been up for: 15 hours 37 minutes and 14 seconds
asciilifeform: shinohai: it does appear to auto-reconnect nao.
asciilifeform: (tho still i suspects disconnects moar often than simply fleanode weather would account for)
shinohai: Most disconnects have been manual. It does seem to hold connection well - much better than lispbot (and I can't for life of me figure out why).
asciilifeform: a.
asciilifeform: shinohai: iirc the orig. lisp bot had broken 'pingpong' handling.
shinohai: I tested whaack 's "no suicide on reconnect" patch but still simply died more often than I liked.
shinohai: fwiw I'm not giving up on lispbot, like you *I really want to like it* but want to get repeatable results out of it, etc.
asciilifeform: shinohai: fundamentally, if you have async multithreads, you gotta also have a lock in the message handler that'll force a ping from fleanoad to get answered immediately w/ 'pong', before bot emits anyffin else
asciilifeform: shinohai: in my bot i avoided having to do this because single thread, and 100% synchronous operation.
shinohai: Same with new bot, when receives PING, immediately PONGs before anything else.
btcinfobot: Same with new bot, when receives PONG, immediately PONGs before anything else.
shinohai: lel
shinohai: forgot about that
asciilifeform: shinohai: if it still disconnects ~daily, then prolly not quite so
asciilifeform can't say more concretely w/out seeing src
asciilifeform: !q uptime
snsabot: asciilifeform: time since my last reconnect : 18d 0h 1m
asciilifeform: !w uptime
watchglass: asciilifeform: time since my last reconnect : 25d 20h 23m
asciilifeform: shinohai: the typical fleanode-weather disconnect freq. is 1-2x/month, historically
shinohai: ^ accurate, saw this while jhvh1 was in operation.
asciilifeform: if you see moar often -- likely bug on yer end.
asciilifeform: shinohai: what was jhvh1 made of ?
trinque: asciilifeform: correct, orig had a huge bug related to ping/pong, whereas now yes, a bit more sensitive than I'd like, but doesn't get stuck.
trinque: I've been distracted by "holy shit, they're going to take linux from me if I don't v-ify it" quest for some time.
shinohai: asciilifeform: jhvh1 was python gribble clone pretty much.
trinque: as of yesterday, ^ built itself, and this is with the gnat from ave1's item, not the "gnu" one.
trinque: that's what raised the question of v-tronics from yest. will circle back to that thread when able in the next few days.
trinque: re: IRC, I don't imagine there are no improvements left to be made, but it'd also be mighty nice to get our own network peerings going before long, rather than relying on e.g. fleanode.
trinque: bbl
asciilifeform: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/asciilifeform/2020-08-17#1019643 << indeed, deedbot seems to properly reconnect errytime for month+ nao

asciilifeform: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/asciilifeform/2020-08-17#1019644 << imho is Right Thing to bake vtronic linux. ( tho tbf 'they'll take' is a little pessimistic, afaik asciilifeform's fossilized gentoo repo is reasonably complete. and if it aint, it oughta be, folx plz send in tarballs.. )

asciilifeform: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/asciilifeform/2020-08-17#1019648 << any time trinque et al have a chance to set up an ircism -- asciilifeform is game, will put node in the rack. a net of 3-4 boxes i suspect would already outperform fleanode (supposing they're righteously proper irons, rather than roach motel rentals, naturally)

asciilifeform: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/asciilifeform/2020-08-17#1019645 << i admit that i never looked at internals of 'gribble'. own bot, wrote from empty space, which i suspect was Right Thing to do, if i had used libraryism would prolly be massaging it to this day and wondering wai disconnects
snsabot: Logged on 2020-08-17 13:26:46 shinohai: asciilifeform: jhvh1 was python gribble clone pretty much.
asciilifeform: as it is, i haven't had to patch bot.py since oct. of '19.

asciilifeform: ^ whaack i highly rec to look at (and post) yer debug.log. that thing aint eatin'.
whaack: asciilifeform: here are the last 1k lines http://paste.deedbot.org/?id=mi-X
whaack: i can post more, but trinques deedbot has some unknown capacity limit that i keep hitting
trinque: haha, well.. yeah. it does.
trinque: can't snarf down foreign matter limitlessly
asciilifeform: whaack: this shows that it aint crashed/dead. though, where are the timestamps ? what patch set didja build with ?
shinohai: ^ bot leaving was me doing maintenance
whaack: asciilifeform: It was pressed to jfw's bitcoin_rawtx_get_send.vpatch .
whaack: It's not immediately obvious to me how to get timestamps for bitcoin's debug.log
shinohai: Without patching client, can pipe tail of debug.log through awk: | awk '{ print strftime("[%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S]"), $0 }'
shinohai: But I'm thinking there was a timestamp patch out there somewhere.
asciilifeform: needs '-logtimestamps' in the cmdline apparently.
asciilifeform: ( will work w/ whaack's current press )
asciilifeform: whaack: add the flag to your start_trb.sh (or whatever you have) and restart the noad.
asciilifeform bbl
whaack: asciilifeform: Hm, getting this error now ' Bitcoin: Cannot obtain a lock on data directory /home/blockexplorer/.bitcoin. Bitcoin is probably already running.'
whaack: (prior to running bitcoind again I ran top and killed the bitcoin process with kill <pid>)
whaack: I ran the command again, this time right into my terminal without using a start_node.sh script, and it seems to have started up

asciilifeform: whaack didja reboot it or wat
asciilifeform: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/asciilifeform/2020-08-17#1019680 << the traditional algo (at least mine) is 'kill $pid' and 30s later 'kill -9 $pid'
snsabot: Logged on 2020-08-17 17:46:29 whaack: (prior to running bitcoind again I ran top and killed the bitcoin process with kill <pid>)
asciilifeform: the barbaric networking coad in trb makes it so that all sockets gotta time out before it dies , if killing w/ e.g. 'stop' command or sighup
asciilifeform: (and this on top of a hardcoded delay)
asciilifeform: and indeed it dun let go of the fs lock until it drops
asciilifeform: all of this really oughta get some attention, but hasn't (tho can speak only for myself) largely because folx leave noad going for months/years typically
asciilifeform: i.e. same reason why initial sync was neglected
asciilifeform: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/asciilifeform/2020-08-17#1019681 << lemme guess, you hung up on it and it croaked
