asciilifeform: phf: was pretty good demo, imho, of 'uncatchable joe'(tm)
asciilifeform: ( that, and/or the fact that erryone knew that very little could be achieved by hijacking a bouncer. )
asciilifeform: of possible interest re yest'd thrd -- asciilifeform recalls, when testing ada udp, receiving coupla oddball 'martians' with no obvious structure
bitbot[cgra]: Logged on 2023-02-09 22:25:36 asciilifeform[jonsykkel|awt|deedbot]: i.e. hypothetically, pest letsya treat the net as a (sloow) broadcast medium, if necessary.
asciilifeform: i.e. entirely possible that sumbody already was doing precisely that.
asciilifeform: ( if had to guess who -- botnet client , to avoid hardcoding control box addr )
asciilifeform vaguely recalls sumbody running a 'ipv4 radiotelescope' and picking these up en masse, but not recalls any interesting conclusions
phf: yeah, back when i got my first root box on a fast connection, i had a tcpdump running on the external device. the result was, as you would say, snooze
asciilifeform: phf: in the cited case, not quite snooze; but (unsurprisingly) entropic turds, impossible to make sense of w/out knowing what they came out of (and, prolly, the key)
asciilifeform fwiw strongly suspects that variously pest-like nets have existed for many yrs
phf[asciilifeform]: huh, all kinds of weird behaviors if you run same pest key from multiple stations :>
phf[asciilifeform]: i guess that's to be expected, but there probably should be some awareness in the system of what to do when you start getting packets from different ips
asciilifeform: per spec, oughta simply update AT each time
asciilifeform: you'll get, no doubt, chain oddities
asciilifeform: ( per spec, stations are distinguished by key strictly, i.e. absolutely no diff b/w a properly-config'd station using >1 ip and 'coarse error of pilotage' where 1 key on >1 box, other than the inevitable chain fuckery )
asciilifeform: the only expectation is that a station is presumed to be able to receive packets at the addr $peer last saw it transmit from.
asciilifeform: if seeing selfchain conflicts in a direct peer, pretty good heuristic for '1 key on >1 box'. wat-do in this case is outside scope of spec.
asciilifeform: ( it'll be visible in a half-decent gui pestron, and then wainot ask $peer 'wat'. maybe his key -- compromised. )
asciilifeform: the upside of stateless protocol here is that both genuine peer and impostor can speak. so, naturally, pgp him a new key and throw out the old.
unpx[asciilifeform]: << it has been a while I'm trying to do this, but you actually need a sane pool of paper, not just anything that iacr, arxiv and other public paper archives get. Thus for now my little attempt is deferred until I get a good enough list of books, papers and so on. Currently I'm
bitbot[asciilifeform]: Logged on 2023-02-08 09:59:20 signpost: how about same over scientific papers, assuming for the moment that a corpus of real one could be had (the lack of which isn't the fault of this particular tech)
unpx[asciilifeform]: hosting it here, but the link to the code is simply wrong.
asciilifeform: unpx: loox like only has search box ?
asciilifeform: ( where's the list of warez ? )
asciilifeform unenthusiastic re 'scihub'-type warez for simple reason that problem is that ~nobody is writing ~anyffin actually worth reading, rather than 'ohnoez, can't find $paper'
unpx[asciilifeform]: I think you may be able to list everything by searching for a very common word (e.g. 'a'), I don't recall limiting the results nor paging it, so there you have your list. But this isn't the good list, you can see it as a download dir.
asciilifeform in all cases where actually needed $paper, found trivially
phf: asciilifeform, too many papers are hidden behind paywalls. i have scihub on speeddial
phf: and not just luby, but foundational stuff
phf: but kind of goes back to many a conversation and threads both in b-a, t and a, of the need for "rebuild civ from first principles" archive
phf: perhaps once we have running luby
unpx[asciilifeform]: > ~anyffin actually worth reading <<< the only way I found is reading what other people suggest and slowly compile my own list of suggested readings.
unpx[asciilifeform]: There was a time I wanted to create a protocol for this, but the point isn't in the protocol, rather in the network and its primary seeders: readers.
phf[asciilifeform]: but then your papers should be in some kind of context? like come with "who recommended" "relevant project" "relevant goal" ,etc.
asciilifeform: phf, unpx: fwiw all of the papers asciilifeform 'used' , are mirrored on his www, in the format seen in earlier link. imho this is the way to do it.
asciilifeform: the jpgs naturally aint searchable, but to date this also kept the copyrasty bots out.
asciilifeform: (moar often than not, there aint even a searchable copy avail. anywhere, they're scans to start with)
