vex: Perhaps the road from Beijing to Moscow is more viable to transit if the Kazak people subsidise the fuel.

whaack: aciilifeform: good morning
whaack: asciilifeform* , derp
shinohai: un cafecito para abrir los ojos whaack [~]D
whaack prepares the french press
whaack: interesting how my trb node never seems to fall behind anymore, i no longer have it auto restart every 24 hours
asciilifeform: wb whaack
whaack: !e view-height
trbexplorer: block_height: 717316
asciilifeform: whaack: does that thing currently eat blox strictly, or also mempoolisms?
whaack: just blocks, and it stays 2 blocks behind
whaack: but adding mempoolisms is a top priority
asciilifeform: would be handy, imho
whaack: because when you use a block explorer in practice, much of the time you want to look to check that a new txn is floating in the mempool
asciilifeform recalls over9000 'hey folx is this in yer mempools or did it go to devnull?' thrds
whaack: i think that a good short term solution is just to make sure that the blockexplorer has its own local mempool and it reliably is able to send anything in that mempool to the miners to get mined
whaack: idk if i really want to be storing the cespool of bitcoin "wheres the signature?" 2.0 txns
asciilifeform: iirc it rides on a stock trb, neh
whaack: yes
asciilifeform: so i'd expect worx in that respect
whaack: maybe, i recall trying to send a txn once with it and it did not work
whaack: there's also the problem of getting a false thumbs up on certain transactions with the high-s signature, which is not going to actually be broadcasted to the network
asciilifeform: whaack: all the cases to date of this on asciilifeform's desk were traceable to fughetting fee knob
whaack: err not actually going to be accepterd to the network
asciilifeform: well, and that (the S thing was fixed by mod6 yrs ago tho)
asciilifeform: !q seen-anywhere mod6
dulapbot: mod6 last seen in #asciilifeform on 2021-11-10 13:05:58: Thanks for the warm welcome in here. I'll hang out, will check back periodically, ofc.
whaack: ah okay , i have a trb pressed to a recent patch on phf's thing, so i probably do have that included then
asciilifeform: there's quite a lot to do re: trb, sadly asciilifeform currently hasn't time to do ~any of it
asciilifeform arguably aint world-class trb tester at least on acct of the fact that he routinely goes for yr+ b/w actually tx'ing
asciilifeform: in other lulz, 'Our servers are currently unavailable due to a global Internet shutdown in Kazakhstan' (a heathen block exploder)
asciilifeform: 'oops, colour revolution'
asciilifeform wonders who would want to host in that shithole after this
asciilifeform: << sitting in a rack w/ 5 other noades prolly helps
dulapbot: Logged on 2022-01-05 10:05:47 whaack: interesting how my trb node never seems to fall behind anymore, i no longer have it auto restart every 24 hours
whaack: lol, true
whaack: also lol "global ... in Kazakhstan"
asciilifeform: iirc it's a single-fiber shithole like uy
asciilifeform: (prolly w/ the plug in nazarbayev's office)
asciilifeform: 'filtration system, a marvel to behold!'(tm)(r)
billymg: << you finally shamed me into adding reconnect logic to the bot, let's see how it holds up
dulapbot: Logged on 2022-01-04 21:38:16 asciilifeform: (tho billymg's is useful; but often enuff pest convs fall through on acct of bot hiccup)
asciilifeform: billymg: what new reconnect logic did it need? (iirc was based on asciilifeform's logotron which had already reconnect logic, neh?)
billymg: asciilifeform: db reconnect
billymg: mine would sometimes lose its connection to postgres. the bot would stay connected to irc, never an issue there, but all loglines after the severed db connection would just go to /dev/null
billymg: original thread here, which is what prompted me to want to upgrade the box
dulapbot: Logged on 2021-09-17 14:44:45 asciilifeform: billymg: i strongly suspect your proggy is closing it (on, e.g. timeouts or whatever externally-induced eggog) and not reopening
dulapbot: Logged on 2021-10-02 19:40:57 billymg: asciilifeform: rack service inquiry for whenever you have a chance to read
billymg: but obviously didn't end up happening as soon as i had hoped, since the meme flu jammed things up
dulapbot: Logged on 2021-12-01 21:47:34 asciilifeform: billymg: waiting on crate of ram, sadly (atrocious delays in shipments)
asciilifeform: billymg: i haven't heard from 'customer A' btw. (emailed him, and giving him the customary month to wake up...)
billymg: asciilifeform: nice!
billymg: ty customer A
asciilifeform still hoaping to get hold of that ram
asciilifeform: billymg: the pg thing is interesting; when asciilifeform operated logotron on rk, never saw it drop. then again likely the loads are rather different
billymg: yeah, it's on the same box as the crawler, so that could have something to do with it
asciilifeform: entirely possib
billymg: i increased pg's ram allocation, currently the system runs with about 20-25% ram free, so i could allocate a bit more
asciilifeform: billymg: worth a shot, will be valuable info for other rk folx
signpost: << why pass the entire search result to emacs, rather than w/e will fit in the completion window?
dulapbot: Logged on 2020-07-03 19:27:09 asciilifeform: apparently such proggy can only be written if write 100% of graphics stack (incl. font renderer) from 0. as in e.g. emacs (before anyone asks, i ~specifically~ did not and still do not want this kinda thing as elisp progggy -- it'll 100% guaranteed choke on 200MB+ of indexable db.. )
signpost actually needs a sane one of these for note-taking for another commercial project, might bother to write a wartime one that indeed compromises and uses emacs for UI, as pest punted UI to IRC (sensibly imho)
asciilifeform: signpost: i experimented w/ using emacs for this, found the lag (for heavy ops e.g. populating the completer box, and esp. for highlighting large buffer after erry keypress) intolerable
asciilifeform: doesn't mean that signpost would necessarily find it so, esp. if he has substantially moar recent irons, say
asciilifeform regularly inhabits not-so-recent irons, e.g. kgpe-d16 opterons, x60 lappy, similar
dulapbot: Logged on 2020-12-21 19:54:39 asciilifeform: will prolly try the infamous kdpe-d16 next. this an' the other one, were the last 2 opteron+ecc mobos before the great fritzchipping.
asciilifeform: it may also be possible to massage cycles -- e.g. somehow make the highlighter suck less so only touches what's visible + a screenfull in either direction
asciilifeform finds that for 100% 'flow', the contents of screen must be 100% correct after ~any~ keypress. folx who do not, may be able to tolerate less cpu-intensive variant
asciilifeform: emacs is prolly the only extant sow's ear from which one could sew even a half-way simulacrum of this silk purse. asciilifeform however was not satisfied with his attempts, ftr
signpost: yeah, certainly wont be optimal.
asciilifeform: signpost: 1 approach, rather 'rube goldberg' but sometimes working, asciilifeform has seen w/ emacsism, is 'slime'-style 'language server' process to which cpu-heavy liquishit is offloaded, w/ emacs used strictly as i/o layer
asciilifeform currently working on a commercial horror that includes 1 of these
asciilifeform: when used w/ 1 of these, emacs simply listens on a socket and puts the letters where it is told to, sends keystrokes back to $process, etc
asciilifeform: y'know, exactly as signpost noted pest does w/ irc.
