shinohai: wb jurov!
asciilifeform: wb jurov !
asciilifeform: jurov: let's discuss rebooting tbf when you have a chance.
thestringpuller: hooray! wb jurov. hope you are well.
thestringpuller: asciilifeform: may start pushing future transactions through "watchglass network" (as i've internally canonized it), rather than samourai network
asciilifeform: thestringpuller: it very rarely makes sense to go through the bother of manually injecting a tx into particular remote noad. (normally you throw it in yours and it broadcasts to errybody in its cache, which normally includes other trb folx)
asciilifeform: speaking of nodez, asciilifeform's is awol, on acct of downed fiber. and asciilifeform himself is on shite gsm fallback, will be on & off today
shinohai: Run moar Verizon?
asciilifeform: shinohai: in this case yes. moar generally speaking 'run moar cities w/ aboveground utils'
shinohai: lmao I remember this for the "You smoke too much weed." comment. xD
thestringpuller: https://www.windowscentral.com/heres-how-microsoft-employee-stole-10-million-xbox-gift-cards << "singularly responsible for global fluctuations in the price of Xbox gift cards on reseller markets"
asciilifeform: thestringpuller: lol, loox like mp's 'plan for wealth'(tm)(r)(c) didn't quite work for this fella
jurov: I'm fine, thanks.
jurov: And about restart, well last I asked what are we actually doing and why, the discussion died.
asciilifeform: jurov: imho 1st thing to do is to get the ml running again
asciilifeform: jurov: i recently baked a patch, had nowhere but own www + logs to put it
asciilifeform: jurov: the other thing, i'd like to start writing broadcasts again (quarterly, say) ; willing to do w/ own hands
asciilifeform: as for 'why' -- asciilifeform + a number of known folx + some unknown number of unknowns , use trb, and per investigations carried out by billymg & whaack , trb noades may in fact constitute a substantial % of the network's functioning carrying capacity.
asciilifeform: additionally, trb is imho valuable for its original, per asciilifeform , purpose -- to serve as gold standard ref for work on replacement client.
asciilifeform intends to continue maintaining trb, and would prefer to do it w/ jurov et al.
asciilifeform: jurov: also interested in your old idea re potentially offering bounties for trb work. (but this -- later)
asciilifeform: jurov: see logs re whaack's and billymg's node explorer projects, also.
shinohai: Sing out jurov asciilifeform if any trb help needed on this end aside from maintaining mirror and such that am already doing.
shinohai: Otherwise I'll just shitpost all day.
jurov: Ok I'll have to get up to speed. The old ml isn't coming back, but a simple web app with a form that checks submission with gpg and publishes it.
asciilifeform: jurov: would imho entirely suffice to have web hopper
jurov: I thought maybe trb will be in vain as the power rangers eventually succeed completely replacing the bitcoin protocol. But all the ways to "save" block space they did aren't very effective, so not happening.
asciilifeform: jurov: indeed trb still entirely worx!
shinohai: jurov: My "covert" twitter research shows they are so gaga over "L2" solutions and "taproot" right now, nothing of consequence has changed with underlying protocol.
jurov: i read about mp yesterday, then said to myself stop procrastinating and check back
asciilifeform: jurov: lotsa interesting things happening. asciilifeform for instance is trying to get p2p irc/irclike net off the ground.
dulapbot: Logged on 2021-06-18 18:35:02 asciilifeform: the troo p2p topology i propose removes all kindsa fundamentally palace-flavoured concepts -- 'joining', 'kicking', 'banning' -- and replaces simply w/ freedom of association, i.e. peering & unpeering.
asciilifeform: (with signpost(trinque) and other folx)
asciilifeform: jurov: are you able to log in as op of #therealbitcoin ? it's become infested with liquishit
asciilifeform: if it cannot be cleansed, i'ma have to drop it from my logger. the spamola is nauseating.
shinohai: Alas I dropped chan because of same, guess if jurov is unwilling I'll go and see if they'll expedite registry if we need a heathen chan for trb
shinohai: jurov appears if you formerly were founder of #therealbitcoin, you gotta go to #ChanHelp to get it back now :/
shinohai: Nevermind I got someone from staff to let me reg it
thestringpuller: shinohai with the clutch
thestringpuller: shinohai: are you going to be going to Tonga with the Bitcoin Delegation?
shinohai: thestringpuller: Tonga already made it perfectly clear the kiddy-diddler led "Bitcoin delegation" ain't welcome there. xD
verisimilitude: So sex slaves are only fine when they're adults?
verisimilitude: I'm referring to ``slave girls'', to be clear.
shinohai: verisimilitude: I'd recommend messaging Calvin Ayre if you want underage girls. I'd rather have fully developed tits and hips.
verisimilitude: I don't know him, but I'm fine without.
shinohai: The "kiddly diddler" delegation I mentioned above refers to ye olde Brock Pierce rushing down to El Salvador after Bitcoin law was passed attempting to ... shill shitcoins.
shinohai: Found the spot where MP dumped his coins: https://twitter.com/DailyCaller/status/1411081485579325440
signpost: shinohai: looks more like hell sending him back our way.
shinohai: lol signpost
