verisimilitude: So when can any expect a decision regarding that, adlai?
asciilifeform: !q seen-anywhere adlai
snsabot: adlai last seen in #asciilifeform on 2020-08-31 11:44:55: if all this bounty does is accelerate the expenditure of my own coins, then sic transit pecunia fullstop
asciilifeform: verisimilitude: fella shows up ~1x/quarter, you may have to wait..
verisimilitude: That's good to know; well, I've no choice but to wait.
asciilifeform: verisimilitude: abstractly, imho is interesting how little '$work for $coin' there is / has been historically .
asciilifeform: ~only example i've encountered personally was mp's 'naked chix pics for coindust' project. and a few misc. bounties
asciilifeform: here's one of asciilifeform's (still unclaimed to this day!)
asciilifeform: ( tho tbf it was moar of a 'treasure hunt' than generic works )
asciilifeform: at some pt, i'ma put bounties on defects in ffa. but prolly not this yr.
snsabot: Logged on 2020-08-31 13:10:54 asciilifeform: fwiw asciilifeform considered in past, and may consider again, to put btc bounties on finding mistakes in ffa.
asciilifeform: imho is moar useful as 'put money where mouth' gesture than actual effective method to find defects.
asciilifeform doesn't plan to pay out for e.g. 'spelling mistake in comments', but rather for 'exploitable' defects, i.e. where clearly fallacious answer outputted for clearly-specified questions, e.g. 'is signature S valid for payload P and pubkey K' etc
asciilifeform: for 'function F claims to take constant time but here's where does not' also will pay.
asciilifeform: participation will limit to folx in L1, w/ L2+ participants permitted if brokered by L1 fella. in no case 'wild randos'.
asciilifeform: but this is long way away.
asciilifeform: iirc jurov once threatened to do sumthing similar in tbf, but atm can't find where said this, possibly i hallucinated .
asciilifeform: in unrelated recent lulz. gpg 1.x , as usual, unaffected..
verisimilitude: What's the advantage of using GnuPG 2 over 1?
asciilifeform: verisimilitude: imho there aint one. lamers who demand guism, or simply install a heathen linux of last 5+y vintage, end up w/ 2.x
verisimilitude: I don't understand why they'd continually update it, then.
asciilifeform: verisimilitude: koch -- maintainer -- is a nsa stooge.
verisimilitude: Oh, alright.
verisimilitude: If and when I download the source to lightly audit and compile, should I choose the last 1 release?
asciilifeform: see e.g.
asciilifeform: verisimilitude: 1.4.10 is the one most ex-#t folx use afaik.
verisimilitude: I'll also choose 1.4.10, then.
verisimilitude: I appreciate the advice.
asciilifeform: verisimilitude: my sig for that tarball.
asciilifeform: verisimilitude: be aware of known bugs .
verisimilitude: Alright.
verisimilitude: I take it 1.4.10 is affected by this flaw.
asciilifeform: aha
asciilifeform: afaik all versions of the era, similarly. in principle could be used to nail folx w/ very long ( > 2048b ) keys from those days.
asciilifeform: ( in practice no one's admitted to succeeding. but unsurprising. wouldja admit ? )
asciilifeform never patched his gpg, given as doesn't ever intend to generate keys on gpg again; and if were to -- doesn't think much of koch's published patch, keygen still uses whitenism
asciilifeform: the correct way to keygen is to pump straight from iron rng. Just Say No to kochism.
asciilifeform: my approach to the q, ftr.
shinohai: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/asciilifeform/2020-09-03#1021037 << but mah douchebag responsible disclosure and sheeit.
snsabot: Logged on 2020-09-03 16:27:17 asciilifeform: ( in practice no one's admitted to succeeding. but unsurprising. wouldja admit ? )
phc: hey im phc
phc: wuddup
shinohai: hai phc
phc: hello
shinohai: What brings you to chan?
phc: i dont know
phc: something....
phc: im trying to commission a small job
phc: for an ftp site
phc: just one word, monochrome, with some scrolling and stuff
shinohai: ah kk .... verisimilitude is this in your purview
phc: the word itself is annoyingly long tho
phc: im not sure what's the max column width that would display in an ftp
phc: ill hang out for awhile, thanks
shinohai: np
verisimilitude: Do tell, phc.
phc: word is "polyandrium"
verisimilitude: Okay; what of it?
phc: maybe "Welcome to the" along the top left somewhere in typed font
phc: i told the folks in efnet #asciiart id send paypal if someone could do a decent job
phc: no takers
phc: the word is greek for "ancient crypt of warriors"
phc: or something like that
verisimilitude: The closest word in my physical dictionary was ``polyandry'', the act of having multiple husbands.
verisimilitude: The online dictionaries agree with this burying ground definition, however, yes.
phc: but it's going to be an ebook ftp, so i was thinking some skulls and books, or skeletal hands + tombstones
phc: but i cant afford a full spread
phc: im sure
phc: artist would get FL access for life, ofc
verisimilitude: So what's wanted is to produce a full screen ``home page'' for an FTP server?
phc: something that would fit in an ftp program display
verisimilitude: Alright, so 80x25, say?
phc: so a user would see it when they log on, and then everytime they download something
verisimilitude: How much would this pay, phc?
phc: depends on how much time you spend on it, and how sick it is
phc: no less than twenty bucks
verisimilitude: The only payment method is Paypal, correct?
phc: or the artist could set an hourly rate, and then we could cap it
phc: uhhh i guess i could get in to bitcoin
verisimilitude: With no offense intended, I'm not willing to reveal my identity for such a job, so I wouldn't want to use Paypal.
phc: fair enuf
phc: understandable
verisimilitude: If we use Bitcoin, I'd also need to generate an address.
phc: ofc u can put your tag in the piece itself
verisimilitude: What's the schedule for this, phc; how long do I have to accept, to provide, etc.?
phc: the site itself is probably some weeks off
phc: just think about it, ill idle in here for a few days
verisimilitude: Alright.
asciilifeform: phc: i suspect that you may be gravely confused. this chan is not about ascii art ( tho i am not averse to ascii art... )
asciilifeform: phc: it is not a gathering place for ascii-artists... simply is accident of fate that i've a suggestive irc handle, lol.
asciilifeform hates to disappoint the n00b, but must state fact
shinohai: I always like the ascii art in original shiva m/l announcement.
asciilifeform: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/asciilifeform/2020-09-03#1021041 << dun think that was why. think, a broken battlefield key is worth rather moar 'half-dead' than publicly phuctored.
snsabot: Logged on 2020-09-03 18:08:55 shinohai: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/asciilifeform/2020-09-03#1021037 << but mah douchebag responsible disclosure and sheeit.
asciilifeform: shinohai: the jolly roger ? iirc it was stock
asciilifeform: verisimilitude: i gotta ask, are you actually artist, or just starving ?
asciilifeform is reasonably tolerant of off-subj material, but will politely ask that folx take any 'make me $xyz for paypal' somewhere else .
asciilifeform: ( for all values of $xyz that aint a bitcoin tx.. )
asciilifeform bbl.
verisimilitude: I figured it was in poor taste to partake in the conversation; had it not come so swiftly after adlai's announcement, I likely wouldn't've bothered with it, asciilifeform.
verisimilitude: I'm not starving, and I'm not much of an artist.
verisimilitude: To phc, I've actually a relevant section of my website, so go there and read it: http://verisimilitudes.net
