lyspooner: what is min size for x.eur
lyspooner: and do i understand the specifications correctly that davout will be responsible for defining delivery details?

assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 15512 @ 0.00089469 = 13.8784 BTC [-]
mircea_popescu: lyspooner what do you mean min size ? you can get 1
jurov: he prolly means the lot
mircea_popescu: Apocalyptic you getting a lot of that in -otc these days huh ? i see Azelphur negging people, that's a rarity.
mircea_popescu: 1 x.eur = 1 eur
mircea_popescu: <lyspooner> and do i understand the specifications correctly that davout will be responsible for defining delivery details? << within reason and in advance.
lyspooner: so i buy 1 x.eur, hold it to expiration, and then davout gives me 1 eur
jurov: and MKFUT does work on x.eur with 1.8 EUR collateral equivalent?
mircea_popescu: at expiration you can either take 1 euro in cash if you go through the delivery process or have it rolled to next month's x.eur
mircea_popescu: jurov no.
mircea_popescu: but you can contact davout, and deliver euros to him on bc, which arrangement he may accept
lyspooner: i could bankrupt davout by buying several instances of 1 euro from davout, holding them to expiration and having him wire me 1 eur at as many bank accounts as i have contracts
mircea_popescu: this obviously being a mm feature, don't expect it to happen for 7.8 eur or some bs
mircea_popescu: lyspooner afaik there's a 5 eur charge per delivery.
mircea_popescu: go ahead
jurov: right
mircea_popescu: anyway, the phys delivery is mostly there to keep things honest. unlike all the bucket shops running a soft-settled only "future"
mircea_popescu: which obviously is not a future.
lyspooner: because delivery specifications are made by a single-market maker, this contract will always guaranteed to have a single seller?
mircea_popescu: no such guarantee is made.
lyspooner: but davout is responsible for his delivery specs, which might differ from, say, mine
lyspooner: how will a buyer know whome he is facing ?
mircea_popescu: (see teh email you just got)
lyspooner: ah ok sec
jurov: we'll have to wait for official announcement with the specs.. or was it done already?
mircea_popescu: jurov click all the links!
mircea_popescu: Monthly settlement details available here :
jurov: i see
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 14475 @ 0.00089656 = 12.9777 BTC [+] {3}
lyspooner: so mpex will not take responsibility for davout or anyone else's failure to deliver?
mircea_popescu: yeah, because they deposit to mm.
mircea_popescu: (c) The Market Maker will make a deposit of BTC with the Exchange, on the basis of which the Exchange will create a number of X.EUR contracts in the Market Maker's account, by the criterion of the weighted spot price rounded to the lowest 10.
lyspooner: so if you choose 5 market makers for the product, each with their own delivery specification, the buyer of the contract faces all of the different mm's
mircea_popescu: (a) The Market Maker will immediately notify the Exchange should observance of the terms of this contract become impossible for the future. Should such notification be received, the Exchange will distribute the Market Maker's deposit to contract holders, in proportion of the number of contracts they hold but not in excess of the implied spot value rounded to the lowest 10. This distribution will constitute the sole rem
mircea_popescu: edy for contract holders from the part of the Exchange.
mircea_popescu: lyspooner that is one way to run it. there's no guarantee it'll be the way it's run.
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [PETA] 3 @ 0.05 = 0.15 BTC
lyspooner: so if i buy 1000 contracts at .0015 and the future expires at 10,000,000 eur on the final settlement day, and the short can't give me 10 billion euros, what do i get?
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [NEOBEE] 65 @ 0.00298 = 0.1937 BTC [+]
mircea_popescu: 1000 contracts = 1000 euros
mircea_popescu: how can't he not give you 1000 euros ?
lyspooner: ah ok, i've been look at icbit too long
mircea_popescu: it rots the brain.
lyspooner: indeed
mircea_popescu: we do things right for a reason.
lyspooner: there's still something gross about the delivery specs being different from mm to mm
mircea_popescu: no there isn't. you've been looking at eurodollars too long.
mircea_popescu: embrace free market.
lyspooner: imagine i buy 100 contracts while there is a single market-maker, davout, because i am comfortable with his terms of delivery
mircea_popescu: anyway, the mm deposit could have been in either of the pair, but btc seems safer.
mircea_popescu: admittedly there could still exist an edge case where the mm splits and the holders book a loss
mircea_popescu: but it seems really edgy.
mircea_popescu: lyspooner certainly all changes are announced before the contract trades. this is sacred.
lyspooner: you couldn't allow a second market-maker
lyspooner: mid-trading
lyspooner: in the case where the mm splits or dies or forgets everything or worse, then the longs eat the crap
mircea_popescu: well suppose the mm gets 1mn contracts, by depositing 1560 btc.
mircea_popescu: he sells those, and then runs off
mircea_popescu: people get 0.00156 btc per held contract.
mircea_popescu: that COULD be worthless, obviously. and it'll have to be accounted for.
mircea_popescu: still, on one hand it's a much better liquidation event than either the best or the most recent non-mpex liquidation event, on one hand
mircea_popescu: and it's practically better than the alternative (hold 1mn euros which also COULD be worthless)
lyspooner: he would sell 1mn contracts, and in the case that bitcoins were worth less than 1 eur and he didn't hedge himself, he would owe 1mn EUR. he would run off and people would get near worthless bitcoins
mircea_popescu: it's a possibility.
lyspooner: make him post euros to you
mircea_popescu: of course, what he says is that he's not going directional, and it makes sense for him not to, if he knows his business,
mircea_popescu: and moreover he has the means to go delta neutral as he has ready access to a spot market.
mircea_popescu: lyspooner what, instead of btc ? that's nonsense.
lyspooner: nonsense in what way? it prevents the situation i just described
mircea_popescu: it creates the equivalent.
mircea_popescu: i tell you euro will turn worthless in the next ten years a degree of magnitude more often than btc will
mircea_popescu: at the very leasty.
lyspooner: shorts post euros, longs post bitcoins
mircea_popescu: i'm not a fucking exchange. i gotta pick one.
lyspooner: the good exchange will pick that format
lyspooner: until then you have recreated icbit's downside problems
lyspooner: with slightly better management
lyspooner: and less (?) default risk
mircea_popescu: looky, economy is built on trust and people doing their job. it's not really built on "making it impossible" for people to default.
mircea_popescu: making it obvious when someone defaults and making responsibility stick for defaults is good enough.

mircea_popescu: "Even with weights, allowing a diff bet to be open to bets till so close to the resolution date, enormously reduces the incentive to bet until it is an obvious call and thus limits the size of the bets to a few eager early beters plus roughly double the late skimmers. No money in between an thus smaller overall rollers."
mircea_popescu: does this guy have a point ?
jurov: kinda yes
mircea_popescu: so then what dio you do, have all these bets you can't bet on ?
mircea_popescu: cause they closed last week and resolve in a month ?
ThickAsThieves: more curvy weight loss

mircea_popescu: jurov huh ?
kakobrekla: [21:49:25] <ThickAsThieves> more curvy weight loss
jurov: yes, updating the curve could help
kakobrekla: you need more fat for more cuvers you know
kakobrekla: curves
Vexual: .bait
ThickAsThieves: you know what i mean tho?
ThickAsThieves: weight needs to drop off harder
kakobrekla: you like fat women?
ThickAsThieves: the curve
mike_c: not sure that's any different than just closing early
ThickAsThieves: it let speople bet
mircea_popescu: not only what mike_c said, but also... then how do you specify the curve.
Vexual: risk and reward
ThickAsThieves: of course then you run into the other issue of letting people make losing winning bers
ThickAsThieves: what if weight was 'spent'
ozbot: BitBet - Bitcoin difficulty at or above 2B before Feb 2014
mircea_popescu: i can't even follow the guy's idea
mircea_popescu: what has materially changed in that bet since a month ago ?
mircea_popescu: it's still pretty wild.
jurov: hm, there should exist some curve how the prediction accuracy increases over time for natural phenomena
ThickAsThieves: if they keep adding PHs every week that bet...
jurov: and weight would be inverse of it
jurov: and i strongly dount that curve is linear
ThickAsThieves: pretty good assumption
mike_c: i'm warming up to the 'spend weight' idea
mircea_popescu: jurov just do a historical average of all science ?
jurov: can't black-scholes be applied?
mircea_popescu: mike_c i dunno what it'd be
mircea_popescu: explain it ?
ThickAsThieves: something like,
mike_c: it puts something of a cap on the bets, but whatever.
mike_c: like, you bet 50btc, the weight drops 50k
ThickAsThieves: you start with 100,000 weight
Vexual: science? is 100% science
mircea_popescu: jurov a nonlinear curve would, of course, have to somehow be communicated to the bettors, which may take 16 months of scam accusations in the btctalk.
ThickAsThieves: then each bet get 10% of that weight, but new bet's weight is offset
ThickAsThieves: by the amount of coin betted
ThickAsThieves: to avoid losing winners
ThickAsThieves: so first bettor get 10,000 weight
mircea_popescu: i can follow mike_c proposal but not yours, and moreover they seem quite distinct
ThickAsThieves: next gets 9000 weight or whatever
ThickAsThieves: i honestly dont havce it thought thru
mircea_popescu: jurov interesting...
mike_c: if you "buy" weight, it encourages you to 1) wait for more info, but 2) get in before someone else gets all the good weight
ThickAsThieves: mike_c it's already the case
mike_c: not really
mircea_popescu: mike_c how do you anchor it ? why 50k and not 492 ?
ThickAsThieves: bet early does get you better weight
ThickAsThieves: just the curve is slowwww
mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves basically he proposes to not use a time function, but a bet function
mike_c: only marginally. but if you auction off weight, it changes the dynamic a lot
mircea_popescu: likle the blockchain

mike_c: thinking it through. i believe it is different because the guy who bets the first 10btc gets more than the guy who bets the last 10btc
mircea_popescu: yes, but his more is a function of the total bet.

ThickAsThieves: it;s old but
ThickAsThieves: if it's not on the agenda for the gov by a certain date
ThickAsThieves: you know it aint gona happen
mircea_popescu: i mean to be clear, im not proposing linear timeweight is the absolutely correct solution. it's obviously wrong, life isn't linear.
mircea_popescu: however, it may be the best approximation, depending how the problem is actually defined
ThickAsThieves: what if it's a fixed amount of weight that can be given, then the 'price' of weight is determined by the amount of coins bet prior.
mircea_popescu: the who ?
mircea_popescu: jurov what's that curve even, its not a sine section.
Vexual: a curve from the difficulty estimate?
mircea_popescu: he linked some stuff above from weather prediction
Vexual: perhaps the weather curve is plotted from data
ThickAsThieves: any tapering over time would be better than linear
Vexual: add some function to the diff estimate to make a sexy curve
jurov: can't find any supporting maths, looks like fully empirical
mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves that can't be true.
ThickAsThieves: i mean that in the starting from linear sense, not saying an extreme taper would be better
mircea_popescu: "any woman would be better than the girl next door. except, you know, a really annoying pornstar. or a quadriplegic. or a butch lesbian."
ThickAsThieves: like said, not meant to be taken to extremes
ThickAsThieves: meant to move the meter
Vexual: u in it for the money or in it for the love?
ThickAsThieves: like 1 bj per year is better than zero
ThickAsThieves: but 1000 is maybe too much
mircea_popescu: mike_c one major problem of the not-time approach is, what if right before your 10btc bet makes it, someone puts in a 1k btc bet.
mircea_popescu: you basically now live in a cloudy soup of "i can't fucking know wjhat i'm betting on"
jurov: 1+cos(x) in the 0,pi interval? but yes, needs some modelling what would be the effect

asciilifeform: without necessarily intending to.
mircea_popescu: i don't think there's possible substitution for reputation generally.

asciilifeform: basic idea is to 'compress' time and space simultaneously
asciilifeform: (sounds weird, but it wurks)

kakobrekla: NSA also does this for you
pankkake: multipage jpeg is called tar :)
BingoBoingo: Whatever is wrong with TeX for passing documents?
asciilifeform: doc in question is a scan
asciilifeform: from dead tree.
asciilifeform: with pictures.
mircea_popescu: we need a better format.
kakobrekla: dam pictures.
kakobrekla: i like png better.
pankkake: png scans are HUGE
kakobrekla: yes cause scans sucks
pankkake: unless you do black and white with high contrast filter
mike_c: ok.. i think i understand enough to design bitbet v2.
pankkake: when is the ipo?
mike_c: i'll ask havelock. probably tomorrow.
mike_c: basically you buy shares in the outcome (this is not tradesports). share price is based on the current proportion of bets. so buying one share costs 0.1, but buying two shares cost 0.22, etc.
mike_c: price of shares will be driven to whatever probability is currently expected.
mike_c: so early bettors get better prices
mike_c: and when an event is basically decided, share prices go through the roof on that side
asciilifeform: is this predicated on identity costing >0 ?
mike_c: no
asciilifeform: because what's to stop 1000 socks for buying 1000 shares for 0.1 each
mike_c: can't be done. it's like an order book
mike_c: but the order book is filled with the algorithmically determined prices
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 10000 @ 0.00090097 = 9.0097 BTC [+]
mike_c: so everyone knows its fair
asciilifeform: so share 1 is sold for 0.1. share 2 is sold, to an apparently different buyer for, ?
mike_c: 0.11
mike_c: bettor would basically put in a limit order
Vexual: then it starts sounding like something else
mike_c: but not, because it's not just an open market
mike_c: and there is no market-maker
mike_c: except, there is always buy-liquidity from the opposing side
mike_c: it does, however, allow you to sell your shares if you want
Vexual: nat a bet
mike_c: huh?
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [AM100] 754 @ 0.00241562 = 1.8214 BTC [-] {4}
mike_c: if there is sufficient interest from people i can work up a simulation.
mike_c: the nice thing about is that you don't need a time weight. early bettors get better odds, and it will naturally get squeezed off when the market knows the event is decided.
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 6900 @ 0.00090317 = 6.2319 BTC [+]
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [CFIG] 5 @ 0.09304399 = 0.4652 BTC [+] {5}
mircea_popescu: so let's run through this. bet is gribble's coin toss comes out heads.
mircea_popescu: what now ?
Vexual: do 3 in a row mircea
mircea_popescu: nah, one's enough for this
mike_c: well, i think parimutuel wagering on mathematical things is silly :)
mircea_popescu: that aside
pankkake: is gribble provably fair?
mircea_popescu: it dun matter what the bet is.
mike_c: let's say the democrats when the next US pres election
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [CFIG] 5 @ 0.09975999 = 0.4988 BTC [+] {4}
mircea_popescu: so what do i do now ?
mike_c: BB seeds with 0.6, 0.4
mircea_popescu: i think irl bitbet seeds more like .3 .7 bu anyway
mike_c: now there will be a share price for each one (there are a variety of pricing functions) to buy a share in each outcome
mike_c: but that share price is an integral
mircea_popescu: wait, what ?
mircea_popescu: i got 10 btc on the dems right here. i send it to your site. what happens ?
mike_c: you get x shares of 'dems winning'
mike_c: no, it's all math
mike_c: no scam
mircea_popescu: all math is scam. so what's your x on my 10 btc ?
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [CBTC] 11113 @ 0.00009487 = 1.0543 BTC [+] {2}
mike_c: you will be able to see when you place your bet. it will say "1 share: 0.1 btc, 1 more share: 0.2 btc, 1 more share: 0.5 btc"
Duffer1: it sounds like you're trying to dumb it down for noobs by overcomplicating it
Duffer1: it = weighting
mircea_popescu: so if i spend 10 btc i get a number of shares you can't specify. wjhat happens next ?
mike_c: it's basically an algorithmically generated order book for shares in 'dems win'
mike_c: i can specify, just can't do the integral off the top of my head.
mircea_popescu: algorithmically generated order books aren't used irl
mircea_popescu: guess why.
mike_c: um.
mike_c: i give up.
mircea_popescu: mike_c so guess dood. weren't you an engineer ?
Vexual: u can have an algo gen weighting curve tho, dont even need to update faq
mircea_popescu: that was quick ;/
mike_c: in my mind it works. i may not be explaining correctly
mircea_popescu: just guess the value of the integral, it won't kill you .not like it's a binding contract or anything
mircea_popescu: just a little numerical analysis
mike_c: ok, lemme figure it.
mircea_popescu: now he goes all taylor on it i bet
mircea_popescu: (1st share 1 btc, 2nd share 1.3 btc etc ftr)
mike_c: if i guess the bridge will fall down when you drive over it.
mircea_popescu: we're trying to see how that'd go atm
mike_c: m = M1[e^(n\n2) - 1]
mike_c: gimme a sec :)
mircea_popescu: why not pi.
mike_c: yes
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [AM100] 100 @ 0.00239999 = 0.24 BTC [-]
sbp: some C code here, haven't tried it:
mircea_popescu: << check out the paperwork that went into a
ozbot: Fudda'd by muddafudda
mircea_popescu: 5 ltc dispute
mircea_popescu: now we know it's the end of the world.
mike_c: ok ok
mike_c: wag: you would get about as many shares as 0.7 has (if 0.7 was on dems)
mike_c: so coming in and dropping 10btc on a bet with only 0.3 on the other side, not so great.
mike_c: just like bbv1
mircea_popescu: bbv1 is neutral on thsi score. if someone buys the other side later it lifts you up
mircea_popescu: does your thing lift me up ?
mike_c: as would this. you are buying shares in dems. later, money comes in on reps, your intrinsic share value goes up
mircea_popescu: aite, so let's try it. since you're somehow decided it must be 0.1s for some reason, i put 0.5 on dems. what's that do ?
mike_c: you get half as many as the 0.7 has
mircea_popescu: so i get 5, say.
mike_c: um, 3.5 to his 7, yes
mircea_popescu: ok. now, i come and put 0.7 on dems. what's this do ?
mike_c: you get like 1 share
mircea_popescu: aite. so dems side is now 3 (opresumably) + 3.5 + .95 shares
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [CFIG] 13 @ 0.07012307 = 0.9116 BTC [-] {5}
mircea_popescu: and .3 + .5 + .7 = 1.5 btc
mike_c: er, heres my math: shares: (7 + 3.5 + 1) = 11.5 shares (0.7 + 0.5 + 0.7) = 1.9 btc on dems
mircea_popescu: o o ok i see. i mixed the .3 and .7 aite
mircea_popescu: so now obama comes and dumps 10 btc on reps. cause he's hedging.
mircea_popescu: how many shares does this buy him ?
mike_c: ~40
mike_c: with BB having seeded 3 shares
mircea_popescu: now, the reps lose, obviously.
mircea_popescu: how do you split the 10.3 ?
mike_c: company decision. it can be done so that all the money is split, or only the losers money.
mike_c: er, so you said the losers
mike_c: 0.7 early -> 6.26 0.5 mid -> 3.13 0.7 late -> 0.9
mircea_popescu: even if these could be within five minutes of each other ?
mike_c: yes. that's the beauty.
mircea_popescu: so any new bet is basically a landrush to buy the early shares ?
mircea_popescu: basically to extract value out of this scheme all you need to know is your avg volume
mike_c: not exactly. the bet should always, throughout its lifetime, float around its current probability
mike_c: and if you see an imbalance, you are incented to act quickly
mircea_popescu: but if i know that a certain bet will reach say 200 btc total wagered
mike_c: whereas right now an imbalance means nothing
mircea_popescu: then as long as the odds are 10:1 or less i am safe buying 10 btc each side, cheap shares
mike_c: first off, that is currently the situation with BB. betting early on a high volume bet is a guaranteed win.
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 14550 @ 0.00090244 = 13.1305 BTC [-]
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [HMF] 40 @ 0.0248 = 0.992 BTC [-]
mike_c: but shares do not devalue with time in this scheme.
mike_c: that is, say the situation went differently.
mike_c: 0.7 on dems, then 10 on reps
mike_c: now i can buy profitable dem shares again
mike_c: and am incented to do so quickly, before someone else does
mike_c: so the right time to bet is when i feel the odds are wrong, which isn't really the case right now
mircea_popescu: suppose i send 1 btc, ion the reps, and discover i didn't get 8 shares but .7 because someone put 10btc in 10 minutes before me.
mircea_popescu: i now go to the forum and open a scam thread, saying you put the 10 btc
mircea_popescu: what do you do ?
mike_c: you basically put in a limit order. "buy up to 10btc of shares at up to 0.2 each"
mike_c: nobody unhappy, because if that whale gets in before you, you just don't get filled
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 21331 @ 0.00090148 = 19.2295 BTC [-] {2}
mike_c: and now you bet the other side.
mike_c: it's right. i feel it. i'll build a simulation.
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 1000 @ 0.00089511 = 0.8951 BTC [-]
mike_c: unless something seems way off to you. like the idea of putting in a limit order.
mircea_popescu: i just gave an example
mircea_popescu: what do you do in that case ?
mike_c: you have to refund I guess. I'm on bitbet, i say "i want 10btc of dems at up to 0.2 per share". You generate an address and in your DB mark it as a limit order at 0.2. if you can only fill 5btc of it you have to send the other 5 back..
mircea_popescu: this will be a pain to run.
mircea_popescu: moving on : how do you sort within a block ?
mircea_popescu: say both me and kako send in block 275000. who goes in first ?
mike_c: yes.. well, JD creamed satoshi-dice because having an account has advantages :)
mike_c: lemme think on sorting.
mike_c: same block, sort by bet time?
thestrin1puller: mircea_popescu: when you retrieve depth stat and matches to json stat, no? So is it possibly to just take current top ask/bid depth value and translate it into market buy or market sell?
thestrin1puller: i'm sure this has been asked before so I apologize
mircea_popescu: well sure it is, bash/python/we you use
mircea_popescu: mike_c the time value is iffy
mike_c: i meant bet time on BitBet, but you reuse addresses, so you won't always have that.
mircea_popescu: (depending who mines the block the same exact tx can end up with diff timestamps)
mircea_popescu: like say pool x could mine me before kako, and pool y could mine kako before me
mike_c: ah, block time isn't dependable?
mircea_popescu: in the best case is "when we heard the tx"
mircea_popescu: or, what the node that told us the tx said
mircea_popescu: or, what the user making the tx said the time was
mircea_popescu: the blockchain exists in the first place because time isnt reliable.
mircea_popescu: otherwise we'd just use timestamps
mike_c: this may not be possible without accounts.. which i guess makes it no good for BB.
mircea_popescu: how do you time accounts ?
mike_c: i mean like having balances on BB
mircea_popescu: even so ?
mike_c: ala JD
mike_c: then its the same as mpex
mircea_popescu: jd isn't a mega concurrency engine. ppl bet the house
mircea_popescu: that may be a little expensive to make.
mike_c: except the order of magnitude is lower
thestrin1puller: ;;ticker
gribble: MtGox BTCUSD ticker | Best bid: 740.0, Best ask: 743.28947, Bid-ask spread: 3.28947, Last trade: 740.0, 24 hour volume: 40151.84292354, 24 hour low: 714.11, 24 hour high: 928.0, 24 hour vwap: 800.48436
mike_c: so it doesn't need to be mpex
mircea_popescu: honestly i dun see myself using it, sounds like a sort of bettrade w/e that thing was called, except with a perhaps very broken auto-mm tacked on
mike_c: the mm is just a help to see what you're getting.
mike_c: similar to the calculator on BB right now
mircea_popescu: if you're gonna do that may as well just make it the thing, let people trade shares.
mircea_popescu: or for that matter invest in zh's darling, i forget what it was called.
thestrin1puller: mircea_popescu: on "stat" call
thestrin1puller: do you get back every transaction you've ever made?
mircea_popescu: since last stat.
mircea_popescu: or an hour prior or something like that
Bunnyh: how about sorting bets in the same block by creation time of betting addresses?
mircea_popescu: Bunnyh he wants accts i thought
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 8026 @ 0.00089501 = 7.1834 BTC [-] {2}
mike_c: if it can be done without accts, all the better. just sorting incoming bets is the problem.
mike_c: and the fact that you would need to potentially return money.
thestringpuller: mircea_popescu: so for the "average" mpex user they would need to call stat evert "blah" hours and keep a log of all of them to record every trade/transaction they've made on mpex no?
mircea_popescu: and the fact that you will need a very solid api or nobody will mm it.
mircea_popescu: bbet's interface is very simple by design, but your thing would be sort-of like the rpc call of all time
mircea_popescu: thestringpuller they can call it once a month
thestringpuller: but they would need a "stat.log" or something?
mircea_popescu: well w/e they wish to use
jurov: that
mircea_popescu: yes, if they want to store data they;ll need a filesystem or some other similar implement
thestringpuller: of course, but the user has to record, mpex doesn't have SoR
jurov: thas's why pympex logs by default
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [PETA] 24 @ 0.045 = 1.08 BTC [-]
thestringpuller: yea, but I was seeing how the user could see more of their trades in a gui
thestringpuller: like a large table
mircea_popescu: in principle a good client logs.
thestringpuller: and stat only shows recent, was seeing if the user would be the SoR
thestringpuller: if so then user would load previous logs into new client
thestringpuller: then have all trade data for that account
mike_c: if this were a simple problem we wouldn't be talking about it. simple designs are great, but limiting.
mircea_popescu: no argument.
mircea_popescu: still, we use http and tcp/ip
mircea_popescu: we don't use windows or macos
mike_c: yeah, i just feel like we're talking about tcp KEEP_ALIVE and deciding it's too complicated :) even tcp is complicated.
mike_c: i'll think on it some more. and can maybe explain more clearly.
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [AM1] 3 @ 0.2599 = 0.7797 BTC [+] {2}

mircea_popescu: there;s 50 btc bond deposits ?
BingoBoingo: There is an Alphabet Soup Agency Agent right now reading all of Bitcointalk's posts and being pissed that the guy in the neighboring cubicle gets to instead just read the -assets log and follow any linked content.

kakobrekla: its an interesting topic

Ziggy9263: But if I were to ever make it downtown to the ISD's office...
asciilifeform: there's more to life than an uncensored net connection.
Ziggy9263: I'd keep a livecd and a rat with me...

Ziggy9263: Windows...
Ziggy9263: I know the password of one of my teachers, and so I log in, open up the console, add my admin account, log out and back into the account, and then I'm all good... After that, I just proxy on over to my server and then watch youtube videos all class period.

asciilifeform: how do you 'play' internic?
Ziggy9263: asciilifeform: I asked if you'd played Uplink, sir.
Ziggy9263: asciilifeform: The game by introversion software.
Ziggy9263: Okay then, nevermind...
asciilifeform: played 'core wars' though.
asciilifeform: recommended.
Ziggy9263: Ahahaha!
Ziggy9263: core wars...
Ziggy9263: I played it a little, had to format my computer before I could really get into it, though.
Ziggy9263: Do you also lurk in #osdev?
