mircea_popescu: twist : badbios is written in .net
nubbins`: that'd be an impressive feat
nubbins`: you'd get at least a few whitepapers out of it
mircea_popescu: i think my cock might be bugged
mircea_popescu: it buggers womenz all teh time.
mircea_popescu: even further twist : "its payment unit PayPal may one day incorporate BitCoin." where are you skinnavaj guy.
nubbins`: ltc: to the hill!
mircea_popescu: ahahaah to the hill
mircea_popescu: too good.

pankkake: the make a lot through paypal fees, or sneaky currency conversion fees
nubbins`: they make a lot through ebay fees
nubbins`: 10%!
pankkake: really it's 10% now?
nubbins`: yes man
mircea_popescu: they'd make a helluva lot more if they could just take a file out of dpr's book and tell the govt to suck on an onion./
nubbins`: ebay+pp = 13%
pankkake: it's becoming worse and worse
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 10200 @ 0.00084145 = 8.5828 BTC [-]
nubbins`: that's why everything is so goddamn expensive on ebay
mircea_popescu: wait, so actually the silkroad charged less than ebay ?!
pankkake: my last big sales were in the 5% range or less, but that was years ago
nubbins`: i think SR was a straight-up 10?
mircea_popescu: maybe i completely misunderstood the business model there.
mircea_popescu: it wasn't for drugs.
nubbins`: although if you wanna be fair you'd have to include exchange fees

mircea_popescu: that bitmit thing isn't going anywhere.
mircea_popescu: but where to find the people to do it...
pankkake: I've been meaning to write it but my productivity is close to zero these last few months

benkay: (plz for to correct)
pankkake: ams?
pankkake: I'm a developer, mostly worked for web startups
benkay: preferred stack?
pankkake: Python, where I use many libs rather than a framework
pankkake: though I previously used Django
benkay: ugh
benkay: django is like a ufo
benkay: "incant this triangular shaped widget into this triangular shaped hole and photos will appear over there"
pankkake: it's easy to do simple stuff but hard to do complex stuff
pankkake: haha
benkay: fn tell me about it
benkay: when i get back from le argent i gotta defuck this django stack
benkay: and then make it profitable
pankkake: I haven't kept up with the latest frameworks
benkay: allow me to express my disgust with python

benkay: although python because clients
benkay: hm.
benkay: bitcoin ebay?
benkay: in lisp?
benkay: come on pankkake
mircea_popescu: it's not a matter of platform or coding even.
mircea_popescu: when i say someone to do it i mean someone with a decade's worth of experience in a relevant position.
mircea_popescu: area manager for a major fcmg retailer, for instance.
pankkake: there's more than doing an ebay though. there is a need for easy small shops (like
pankkake: fcmg?
benkay: i would love to build a thing under someone with a decade's domain experience
benkay: i also want to work with tools that i enjoy
benkay: (as an aside: do you know how hard it is to find business-oriented mentors in america?)
nubbins`: bigcartel is beta-ing direct credit card payments right now
nubbins`: i got an email about it the other day
nubbins`: cutting paypal outta the loop!
pankkake: about time
benkay: (the best we get are advertising/strategy bros who have accidentally fallen into tech)
pankkake: hm bandcamp still uses paypal?
nubbins`: afaik
nubbins`: now, both allowed you to pay with a cc without having a paypal account
nubbins`: but still.

kleeck: Heh. Just got a notification email from the my State's Healthcare Association regarind CryptoLocker.
kleeck: My IronPort has been stripping zipped .exe files for a month now., all from DHL, UPS, and FedEx. Thanks for the headsup...
topace: haha
topace: thats a pretty shitty virus
topace: bringing a lot of new people to bitcoin
topace: in a bad way
topace: i had one guy ask me how i hadnt been arrested yet becuase he knew my address and phone number he was going to report me to the police
topace: it took me half an hour to explain to him, i only buy and sell bitcoins,. i have nothing to do with cryptolocker
kleeck: lol
kleeck: Drugs and Viruses, the backbone of BTC>
kleeck: :P
kleeck: It makes me sad that this virus is actually doing damage to any medium sized businesses.
kleeck: First off, your users shouldn't be able to get a zipped exe, or an exe, at all.
kleeck: At least via e-mail.
kleeck: Second, why don't you have backups?!
topace: one guy i talked to said it infected their backup system from the desktop it was clicked on
topace: i tried to explain to him how a moutned network drive != backup
kleeck: What?
topace: useless
kleeck: His backup was a network share?
topace: yea
kleeck: wtf
topace: which, kinda makes sense
kleeck: who are these clowns?
topace: it was a NAS
topace: and as a clueless IT person, thats probabyl what i would do too
kleeck: So, this wasn't a system admin, then?
topace: most of these companies dont have sysadmins
topace: they have "a guy that knows a littlbe bit about computers"
topace: or
kleeck: And uses network shares as a backup solution..
topace: "a guy that knows a guy that knows how to use computers"
kleeck: You can use a NAS, but you don't SHARE the backup partition.
topace: mostly ive been contacted by small businesses.. 3-10 employees
kleeck: I see.
topace: 3-5 per week the past few weeks
kleeck: Do you do support, then?
topace: "hi, i'd like to buy exactly 2.00000000 bitcoins, how do i do it? can i give you my creditcard number?"
kleeck: Oh no...
topace: == surefire cryptolocker victim
kleeck: That sucks, man.
kleeck: Makes me sad.
topace: i run

mircea_popescu: asciilifeform same reason a girl wearing a funny hat doesn't function as the emperess of china.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: think it would wake people up into the dynamic-workfunction heresy?
mircea_popescu: if the shaman heals you he's still no doctor, even should the mage light up a fire he's still no matchstick
asciilifeform: the mage can still burn the village to the ground
asciilifeform: even if he has no idea why his stick-rubbing touched off the flame.
mircea_popescu: but it wouldn't be a flamethrower, it'd just be a lucky freak.
mircea_popescu: so in this sense this isn't a discussion about mining,
mircea_popescu: this is a discussion about what if god gets your wife pregnant.
asciilifeform: it's more a discussion of 'asteroid event.'
mircea_popescu: if messiah comes tomorrow riding a box of flaming fans
mircea_popescu: this perhaps will have an impact, let's discuss it :D
asciilifeform: one would have to smoke some serious strange to believe that the concept of workfunction is vulnerable in the general case.
asciilifeform: but it is quite certainly so in the specific instance currently in use.
asciilifeform: all of this reminds me of a story told about General Curtis LeMay
asciilifeform: it is said that he never spat out his enormous cigar, and once appeared with such near a bomber at a fueling pump
asciilifeform: a grunt, risking court martial, asked the general to put out his smoke
asciilifeform: given that the whole shebang 'might explode'
asciilifeform: to which the general replied - 'it wouldn't dare.'
asciilifeform: the static workfunction is not entirely unlike this cigar.

kakobrekla: what you need is coin control build
jurov: i use to scare ppl with negative balances on coinbr regularly xD
kakobrekla: so you can easily craft your own tx, so what you do is make the the tx from X to Y, which you need and append X to X which you dont need, the apended tx should be like 100 btc or something
kakobrekla: well basically you need to brake 1 bitcoin-day
kakobrekla: with 100 btc is fairly easy
