thimbronion: asciilifeform: what is your rationale for running trb on top of Pest? Hiding trb nodes w/o tor?
shinohai: billymg: if it helps here is my copy of rk kernel config: http://btc.info.gf/paste/fb4a21@raw
PeterL: thimbronion: if you run trb on top of pest then you know the identity of who is giving you packets
thimbronion: PeterL: ah. indeed that is better enforcement than an ip whitelist.
asciilifeform: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/asciilifeform/2021-11-11#1065059 << the notion of 'hiding' nodes doesn't make a lot of sense, if you think about it ( even if you have own mining farm, still gotta talk to others ) . but this otoh would be useful.

asciilifeform: ( lemme know if it doesn't )
billymg: asciilifeform: yeah, i tried that too actually, didn't work
billymg: "gzip: /proc/config.gz: No such file or directory"
asciilifeform: there's also a copy in the tarball found in yer home dir on the box
asciilifeform surprised, was quite certain he enabled the proc conf thing
asciilifeform: possibly that was only on dulaps.
asciilifeform: billymg: see asciilifeform's rk cookbook , there's a link to the src/config tarball, and instruction for emplacement of the kernel on the sd (where it lives with the bootloader; rather than on the usb3 hose)
asciilifeform: billymg: i highly rec to test any modded kernel on desk rk before uploading to your unit in the rack.
billymg: asciilifeform: would be difficult for me since i don't have a desk rk unfortunately
billymg: i want to run an openvpn server on it
billymg: so i think i just need the TUN module enabled in the kernel for that
asciilifeform: right, iirc is all it needs
billymg: asciilifeform: it wouldn't be for anything bandwidth intensive
asciilifeform: then a++
billymg: sometimes just need US ip when in CR
asciilifeform: makes sense
asciilifeform uses ssh tunnels in such cases, imho simpler than fiddling w/ vpn clients. but matter of taste
billymg: asciilifeform: hm, with an ssh tunnel would i also be able to use, say, a GUI browser through it?
billymg is not familiar with it and assumed "ssh tunnel" meant the ssh command in a terminal
asciilifeform: if yer traveling with something like a reasonable linux box, is quite simple
billymg: asciilifeform: ah, ok then! that seems a lot easier than doing the whole vpn server setup
asciilifeform: billymg: give it a try. if not suffices, i'ma help you bake a vpnistic rk kernel (may come in handy for other folx also)
asciilifeform: but may have to wait for weekend
billymg: asciilifeform: sounds good, will do
asciilifeform: btw billymg wouldja like a (on the house!) desk rk ? asciilifeform has enuff for 100yrs, can spare
asciilifeform: billymg: if so, pgpgram snailmail addr for it

asciilifeform: 55565 is defo an ephemeral port. these'll stay open if the station sprays at least 1 packet/s to ea. peer. thimbronion's current draft doesn't have this yet tho.
thimbronion: asciilifeform: yep
PeterL: is there a way in blatta to update the port?
thimbronion: PeterL: sure but it doesn't matter if you're behind a NAT
PeterL: ah, I see
asciilifeform: btw for troo 'hole punching , if we were to a msg type where yer peer tells you your ephemeral port, then a pair of peers where ~both~ are natted could link up if either of'em has a peer who isn't and is reachable.
dulapbot: Logged on 2021-11-08 12:56:17 asciilifeform: thimbronion: 'hole punching' actually is what we're doing presently,turns out, w/ asciilifeform's station; but it dunwork reliably, because ephemeral
asciilifeform: but this is imho a luxury. per asciilifeform's orig. spec 'at least 1 peer in a pair must have a routable public addr/port known to the other'
asciilifeform: *to have a msg type
asciilifeform: worth thinking about imho, tho.
asciilifeform: it'd give an almost entirely 'nat-agnostic' pest.
asciilifeform: ( for some folx, may be very helpful, various portable gsm etc. modems have annoying mandatory nat )
asciilifeform: various well-known heathenware (e.g. old-style 'skype', prior to microshit's purchase and mutilation) had this.
asciilifeform: shinohai: do you know which gox still eats 'bsv' ?
asciilifeform: $ticker bsv btc
busybot: Current BSV price in BTC: $0.002756
shinohai: asciilifeform: https://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/bitcoin-sv/markets/
asciilifeform: shinohai: have you used any of the listed goxen ?
asciilifeform found that most of'em require a non-usa postage addr
shinohai: Bitfinex only one I've used (but no longer have account).
asciilifeform: iirc it turned into 1 of these
asciilifeform: 'coinbase', where had ~decade-old acct, won't eat 'bsv'.
asciilifeform: been so long since had occasion to use a gox
shinohai: Sadly FreiExchange doesn't list 'em, it's one of the few "Don't ask, don't tell" shitcoin exchanges left.
asciilifeform: shinohai: asciilifeform didn't even bother to look for that kind (had nfi there's any left) plus it aint as if the piggy proclamation wasn't max. public, with trumpets
asciilifeform: the bch recycling will be complete once the bch gox coughs up the output (supposing it does, lol)
shinohai: tbh seems more trouble than worth to do BSV, would only net ya ~0.09 BTC to do so.
asciilifeform: it's still sumthing.
asciilifeform: not quite below 'dust' thresh.
shinohai: Yeah I mean it's a decent amt. But can almost guarantee there will be KYC attached to whatever xchange fucks with it.
asciilifeform: shinohai: prolly
shinohai: "Ain't nobody got time for that!" (tm)
asciilifeform: at one time there was no kycism unless you were churning fiat, but nfi nao

asciilifeform: ditto bcg
asciilifeform: and whatever other lolcoins i may've missed
shinohai: bcg moar ded than mp
shinohai: But in world of shitcoinery sometimes ded coins resurrect. NYAN guy sold 8 million of those for a cool $200K recently.
asciilifeform: lol who the fuck buys dead shitcoins?
asciilifeform suspects a laundry op rather than ordinary 'market sale'
asciilifeform: y'know, similarly to those 10$k 'xbox' sales on ebay
asciilifeform: shinohai: would like to recycle the 'bsv' crapola if at all possible tho.
asciilifeform: a bitdime is nuffin to laugh at.

asciilifeform: if shinohai can't be arsed, then will offer this work to other l1 folx
asciilifeform: needed : bsv to btc conversion for piggy. who stands up, plz state what he will charge, and pgpgram addr.
shinohai: Well I could do on Changelly but it states: BSV exchanges can take up to 18 hours due to the high number of confirmations required for the incoming BSV transactions.
asciilifeform: sure wainot
asciilifeform: shinohai: lemme know what you want for this work ( if it's >0 i'ma give other folx a chance to 'bid' )
shinohai: asciilifeform: how many BSV we talking here? Changelly's rate not the best. (So might be better to let someone with another gox acct bid)
asciilifeform: shinohai: 35.3916
asciilifeform: this aint desperately urgent, but i'd like it done
asciilifeform: minus tx fee and the doer's commission.
asciilifeform on shinohai's rec, trying that gox, hypothetically in ~day might see output
shinohai: worked a++ the couple of times I used it.
asciilifeform: lol apparently 'coinbase' has 3d withdrawal delay nao
asciilifeform: ( which supposedly can bypass by uploading passport mtgox-style, but even the button for it goes straight to eggog )
shinohai: of course
asciilifeform: hm loox like that one fired
asciilifeform: bch recycling yield : 0.35992805 . ( will go in quarterly broadcast )

billymg: dpb: do you still have fg hardware for sale?
billymg: what are they going for? i'm interested in 1, possibly 2
asciilifeform wonders what became of the jfw fella , who bought all remaining fg & spare parts
dpb: yes, re: euart
billymg: asciilifeform: i wonder sometimes too if we'll see them on pestnet someday
asciilifeform: dpb: got it, will sendya a brand-new rk + uart
asciilifeform: dpb, billymg : you'll need a (preferably usb3) drive of some kind
dpb: they haven't gone in a while, but i'm asking 2 cents per unit
billymg: asciilifeform: ack
asciilifeform: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/asciilifeform/2021-11-11#1065283 << lol i expect (if not run outta juice yet) jfw & co will write 'own', 'totally not cribbed' + 100% incompat. item

asciilifeform: i recall d00d was 'definitely gonna' make 'own' over9000ximproved fg etc.
asciilifeform entirely in favour of folx making their own, even 'own' wares, beats whining by over9000x
asciilifeform rather surprised tbh that nobody's fessed up to making a fg, 'improved' or not, given how much sweat put into making this as simple as possible
billymg: dpb: not unreasonable imo, will get back to you once i've figured out where they'll go and how they'll get there
shinohai: Who needs fg when I can stuff some shit scraped out of a smoke detector and throw it in an altoids tin with a raspi
asciilifeform: shinohai: phunphakt, dun even need the tin, for modest rngism needs can simply use a toggle switch in place of the analogue board
billymg uses dice, but that won't work on a remote pest box
asciilifeform: (switch bounce)
asciilifeform: dice, coins, still work, if yer patient
asciilifeform: sorta how some folx still use hand-cranked drills . even asciilifeform has one and on occasion uses
asciilifeform: and as late as ww2, many folx on the front lit fire the old-fashioned way, with flint an' tinder.
asciilifeform: verisimilitude: funnily enuff, speaking of 2014, it's what asciilifeform spent good % of it doing -- discovering how to make a reliable unwhitened rng.
asciilifeform: surprisingly tricky (if no one to crib from , lol)
asciilifeform: funnilyx9000, afaik to this day there's no straight patch to make trb run off fg (or any other iron trng)
asciilifeform: ( various folx threatened to 'separate the wallet' , afaik no one succeeded yet )
asciilifeform: billymg: pest box (esp. after we've 'rekey') defo would win from a working trng.
asciilifeform: (as even stated in the spec)
asciilifeform: asciilifeform's proposed rekey algo, for reference : peer A takes 512bit sA from trng, sends sha512(sA) ('key offer') to peer B. the latter does same; sB; sends sha512(sB) to A. then A sends sA to B, who verifies that it hashes to the earlier hash; if yes, sends his 'key slice' similarly to A. new mutual key is sA ^ sB ^ the key they had the conversaion with.
asciilifeform: the output of the xor replaces the old key they were speaking with.
asciilifeform: this way : 1) neither A nor B can impose an arbitrary (possib. weak) key 2) the entropy of the new key is the max of sA, sB, and the old key.
asciilifeform: i.e. if either A or B has a proper trng, the new key is 'of trng quality'.
asciilifeform: thimbronion ^
asciilifeform still hasn't written the appropriate spec section. but the above is more or less a complete description of same.
asciilifeform: ideally all peers rekey at least erry 24h
asciilifeform: (or moar often when folx start piping e.g. warez over pest, and moar 'mileage wear' on keys)
asciilifeform: and of course one can still send a peer new key 'by hand' / pgpgram.
asciilifeform: really 'gold standard' is for key to travel rsa'd.
verisimilitude: That does fix the issue I'd mentioned. If sA or sB be zero, it would no longer be disastrous.
verisimilitude: At worst, the current key is still used.
signpost: I separated the wallet, have a patch
signpost: rather, removed, and then used pycoin to make transactions
signpost: this variant of trb was part of the deedbot wallet stack
asciilifeform: signpost: right, i recall. was speaking of the orig. 'cut trb in 2' concept there
asciilifeform: ( not, turned out, at all simple, thing being a 1st class ball of yarn where literally erry wart interdepends on erry other )
signpost: yep, didn't seem like productive use of time, when the full cut approached rewrite
signpost: and if this, why still in c++
asciilifeform: ditto the cryptonumerics.
asciilifeform: aand the networking stack.
asciilifeform: (and then to throw out the remaining lint...)
signpost: tell you hwut, this vdiff inability to handle binary files is something of a barrier to jamming existing bootloaders into a vpatch
signpost just about ready to fart out a min-linux, but grunting through ^
asciilifeform: signpost: what's wrong with e.g. echo DEADBEEF... | xxd -r -p > turd.bin ?
asciilifeform: (imho this or equiv. is the sane way to represent bins in a human-readable)
asciilifeform: DEADBEEF can be any length of hexolade req'd
signpost: yeah, will likely end up grunting through syslinux with that.
asciilifeform: if a binturd absolutely must be present -- this'd be how
signpost: and actually, better this, bootsector's readable in pressed state too, and not just in patch.
asciilifeform: i.e. in place of a binturd, you have a binturd-generator, which can be diffed. or even macroasmed into sumthing like readability, and ~then~ diffed.
asciilifeform: even if all you can do to it w/out thorough reversemassage is to replace e.g. runs of 9000 0s with ZERO(9000)
asciilifeform: still makes for over9000x moar 'diffability'
asciilifeform: see from pov where in fact no one actually needs a bootloader, the thing folx need in reality is a proggy that will emplace a bootloader on given device
asciilifeform: said proggy can very well consist of human text.
signpost: was hoping to pull syslinux for this, but the thing not slim. but what one gets is boot from iso, efi, as well as bios boot.
signpost: lilo, simple, but hauls in nasm
signpost: whole space of bootloaders stinks of "nobody takes joy in this place"
signpost: maybe for efi I just use the kernel's efi stub and efibootmgr and call it a day.
signpost: https://wiki.syslinux.org/wiki/index.php?title=Doc/comboot << buncha these thingers just thrown in with the syslinux src in bin fmt
signpost: rather than an asm txt that is compiled to c32.
signpost: ah wait, it was bin86, not nasm, for lilo.
signpost: anyway, to bed I go.
