dulapbot: Logged on 2022-01-21 23:08:40 gregory5: asciilifeform: to my understanding, motherboard-vendors such as Asus are given power/permission to circumvent Fritz, is that right?
asciilifeform: gregory5: yer prolly thinking of the purported bypass discovered in '17 for intel ME ;
dulapbot: (trilema) 2017-08-30 asciilifeform: http://btcbase.org/log/2017-08-30#1706252 << if you're actually convinced that 1) the published method fully and permanently disables the thing 2) it was the one and only fritzchip core in intelturd --- i got bridge to sellya.
asciilifeform: gregory5: which 1) aint a bypass in the sense where can boot self-compiled bios 2) dollars to doughnuts , ME aint the only boobytrap in there anyways
dulapbot: (trilema) 2017-05-02 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: incidentally: i fully expect the ~next~ generation of intel fritz to use nic-independent trigger (e.g., magic string in memory)
asciilifeform: gregory5: otoh for amd's 'PSP' boobytrap, no defusing, partial or otherwise, known atm.
dulapbot: (trilema) 2016-10-04 asciilifeform: 'AMD’s PSP is based around a single 32-bit ARM Cortex-A5, with its own isolated ROM and SRAM but has access to system memory and resources. It contains logic to deal with the x86 POST process but also features a cryptographic co-processor.' << they stuffed, finally, their 'fritz chip', into the g-series.
asciilifeform: for reference, 'kgpe-d16' is the last amd mb w/out 'psp', i.e. where can boot blobless bios.
asciilifeform posting from a box w/ one of'em

whaack: ^ nice
whaack: does anyone have a particular favorite heathen block explorer / particular feature that they like that i may not think to include?
whaack: this is the list i obtained a while back of block explorers i could find from a little bit of searching
whaack: from those i have to give tokenview the W for best presentation, particularly for the clean tables i see when they list out transactions example
billymg: whaack: my go-to has been blockstream.info lately, it used to be blockchain.info
whaack: billymg: oh man that explains a lot, i always used to use blockchain.info and i was wondering how blockchain.com went to such shit
billymg: i wouldn't say i necessarily like blockstream.info i just switched when blockchain.info moved to blockchain.com/explorer to put it alongside their shitcoin wallet
billymg: heh, yeah, exactly
whaack: right, i thought blockchain.info was the product of blockstream
whaack: er, still was
whaack: and i was like boy did that vc money contaminate their project to the extreme
thimbronion: whaack: I check out tx fee charts occasionally
whaack: thimbronion: right, i consider that a core real-use application, i am thinking of displaying that info prominently and also maybe showing example tx fees, say a recommendation for a 1 input 2 output txn
whaack wonders what liquid is
whaack: thanks billymg this is a top one, i am a fan of the color scheme as well
billymg: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/asciilifeform/2022-01-22#1075674 << ah, i think this got misinterpreted. i meant "it used to be blockchain.info" as in, my go-to used to be blockchain.info, not that blockstream.info used to be blockchain.info
dulapbot: Logged on 2022-01-22 12:45:59 billymg: whaack: my go-to has been blockstream.info lately, it used to be blockchain.info
whaack: ah okay
billymg: whaack: yeah, they keep it simple
whaack: is 'virtual size' the size of the block as per trb?
whaack: (seems to be so, goddamn doublspeak, 'virtual' means 'actual')
billymg: lol yeah, good catch
billymg usually only looks at tx and addr pages, not for whole blocks
whaack: right, all block explorers prominently display all blocks, looks nice and 'hey we have a lot of info here!' but i don't plan to make that a main display on my page
whaack: all recent* blocks
billymg: re: liquid, it's another layer-2 scheme for fast transactions, like lightning. they wrote up a decent overview of both actually
whaack: and above when i said 'display all blocks' i meant to say 'displaying a preview of the most recent N blocks', but this is information clutter on the screen, no one has ever gone to the homepage of a block explorer wondering how many transactions were in the 6th most recent block
billymg: what do you think you'd show at the root level view?
billymg: or just nothing and only a search box?
whaack: billymg: Atm I think just a search box and fee recommendations
shinohai: Buenas dias all o/
whaack: shinohai: that doesn't even load on my old firefox browser
whaack: blockchain.com definitely went full retard, their homepage banner now even has 'nft coming soon'
billymg: whaack: a quick fee recommendation right on the homepage seems super useful imo
thimbronion: hey whaack what was the issue with the formatting of blatta notice messages you were talking about?
whaack: thimbronion: the error i get is 'Message without sender' , I don't get the error when i connect ot the server
thimbronion: whaack: I see
whaack: thimbronion: so the msg "Hi, welcome to pest" correctly sets the sender as my localhost, but the other Notice messages does not
bonechewer: Re: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/asciilifeform/2022-01-22#1075663 , next AMD boobytrap seems to be Microsoft product
dulapbot: Logged on 2022-01-22 09:58:30 asciilifeform: gregory5: otoh for amd's 'PSP' boobytrap, no defusing, partial or otherwise, known atm.
asciilifeform: bonechewer: aand that's just the ~advertised~ ones
asciilifeform: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/asciilifeform/2022-01-22#1075669 << very nifty, ty billymg !
dulapbot: Logged on 2022-01-22 12:34:36 scoopbot: New post on billymg: New Logotoron Patches: Bug Fixes and Enhancements
asciilifeform will bring own logotron up to date when gets a chance
asciilifeform: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/asciilifeform/2022-01-22#1075671 << asciilifeform occasionally uses 'blockchair' but it's afaik entirely unremarkable, largely interchangeable w/ the others
dulapbot: Logged on 2022-01-22 12:43:04 whaack: does anyone have a particular favorite heathen block explorer / particular feature that they like that i may not think to include?
asciilifeform will move to whaack's thing when it's baked
asciilifeform spent most of day picking up his very 1st selfstanding 42u rack, 300kg monster from '70s, in 'pdp-8 blue'
whaack: the main problem i have now is that looking up the typical information a heathen block explorer displays for an address takes 1-5 seconds locally
asciilifeform: whaack: didja profile it? (what eats the cycles?)
whaack: not yet but i have a good idea
whaack: i think i'm going to change up the standard way blockexplorers have been presenting the data related to an address to something that highlights the ticket idea. this is partly motivated due to the way my db is laid out, but i have a hunch that the ticket concept may prove a lot more intuitive and easy to understand when looking at one's address in a block explorer
asciilifeform thinks is nifty idea, loox fwd to seeing what whaack comes up with
mats: damn, 300kg? alf is yolked
asciilifeform: mats: asciilifeform aint a circus performer : the thing, fortunately, came apart
asciilifeform: was still a bitch tho
asciilifeform has owned smaller racks which weighed less than merely 1 of the side panels of this thing
asciilifeform: ( asciilifeform : 'soo where didja get this?' scrap man: 'defunkt law office' asciilifeform: ... )
asciilifeform: wonder wtf lived in there ( asciilifeform's guess -- ancient pbx )
asciilifeform: d00d had a buncha weird shit -- e.g. a gigantic faux 19th c. globe, which swung open to reveal compartment for pistol.
asciilifeform: and a... 286. 'that one aint for sale'

asciilifeform: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/asciilifeform/2022-01-22#1075701 << lulzily, there's still a testnet?!
dulapbot: Logged on 2022-01-22 13:07:49 shinohai: switched to https://mempool.space/ as heathen explorer, blokechain.com got too retarded.
asciilifeform wonders wtf is on it
shinohai: Gavin changed the testnet genesis in 0.7 https://github.com/gavinandresen/bitcoin-git/commit/feeb761ba07af74a7cd78b8c8f7c2a961fd9ea1c
vex: !e help
trbexplorer: vex: my valid commands are: src, uptime, version, help, view-height, view-address, view-utxos, view-balance, view-block, view-raw-block, view-tx, view-raw-tx, push
vex: is push working whaack?
whaack: vex: it's rather untested
whaack: problem is, of course, that it costs a tx fee to test lol
whaack: vex: it'd be great if you could try tossing a tx into the machine and see what happens (goes for anyone here)
whaack: vex: did you try to push via the web interface?
vex: yeah, it's been a minute since I sent coin. Neato feature nonetheless
vex: haven't looked at the web interface
vex: is ur bot on pestnet too?
whaack: vex: nah not yet, will be in the next week or so i guess
vex: I'd need to remember how to tx
whaack: i think i'm going to exclude segwit from the genesis, and save it for a separate vpatch, looks like it's a bit of a headache (different base encoding for bech32, whole other can of worms to deal with)
vex: did you get any freaky swell when Tonga went boom whaack?
whaack: vex: my surf buddies told me there were some good big waves, sadly did not get to surf
whaack: nothing too crazy, probably some 6-7 footers
vex: deffo oughta get asciilifeform into some waves one day
