BingoBoingo: Nah, one doesn't want to appear to be a dorky BTC Jesus. One wants to look like a simple blue collar actual jesus.
benkay: or suits as the case may be.
benkay: probably relatively high-profile from target perspective.
benkay: "oh, dude has btc. let's breach his personal security and get 'em."
benkay: but also it has to be a sustainable, fault-tolerant thing that a person can practice their whole lives.
kakobrekla: basically you need some nut a wrench cant unscrew
benkay: "personal crypto security: basically impossibly hard"
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [AM1] 1 @ 0.58 BTC [-]
benkay: i'm thinking best practices for personal backup and recovery strategy for keys and private contracts and such.
dub: BingoBoingo has it really, don't get caught
dub: no amount of kit will protect you from a determined attacker
asciilifeform: benkay: "personal crypto security: basically impossibly hard" << every time this is said, nsa cafeteria fillets and serves a white tiger kitten (or insert rarer and cuter animal)
benkay: sure sure
B007: benkay: all your bitcoins are belong to me
benkay: no i know asciilifeform, it's in quotes for a reason
benkay: okay i have this gpg key
B007: just store your keys encrypted and offline, hope for the best?
benkay: how do i best ensure i have access to it forever?
dub: benkay: one thing I do is delete or hide any wallets im carrying across borders
benkay: encrypted image with all important keys and files?
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [SFI] 150 @ 0.0008829 = 0.1324 BTC [+]
BingoBoingo: carry some microfiche that looks like a one time pad and you actual keys more discretely, misdirect the attention
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [SFI] 300 @ 0.00088299 = 0.2649 BTC [+] {2}
benkay: faugh
BingoBoingo: perhaps find a "collectible" surplus or replica for the purpose
chetty: fillup a lot of storage with random stuff, encrypted with different keys, lose it in the mess
benkay: obfuscation
benkay: i'm afraid of becoming an old man and actually losing it in the mess, though.
asciilifeform: none of you seem to be thinking about the obvious
asciilifeform: situation where enemy (willing to torture and kill) knows that you're loaded
asciilifeform: and doesn't know (or care) where you keep the stash
asciilifeform: but has your arse
asciilifeform: and a soldering iron.
chetty: cyanide
asciilifeform: for some reason i thought that is what this line of thought was about.
benkay: more along the lines of list of things to do that will reduce attack surface area
benkay: maximize key durability
benkay: and access
asciilifeform: next lower class of attack: enemy willing to steal every single one of your identifiable possessions
benkay: right. they got the backups.
benkay: so the only thing to do is an encrypted drive with a memorized dicelist.
asciilifeform: the only real defence is: obscurity
chetty: #1 - don't be a target, #2 - don't be an easy target
benkay: #3 make it hard to parse the possibility space, #4 have rock solid encryption as a last barrier?
benkay: am i retarded or is this problem hard?
benkay: is there a checklist for the professional keyholder i've failed to find?
asciilifeform: wtf is a professional keyholder
benkay: i have a wot key
benkay: it is the sum of my identity 25 years from now
benkay: my whole business is tied up in this thing
benkay: i lose it, i lose everything
benkay: i'm interested in best practices for this sort of scenario.
asciilifeform: encrypt, using a process known only to you, and inject in the blockchain.
asciilifeform: (if you are not willing to pay what this costs, the payload cannot be important)
benkay: yeah, i'll buy that.
chetty: in the end a key based id is no different than the various numbers and stuff we use now, how do you protect those?
asciilifeform: 'pay' in the sense that stuffing bits in the blockchain costs.
benkay: what is the going rate per kb?
asciilifeform: benkay: depends on the actual mechanism used.
asciilifeform: under no circumstances should you tell us - or anyone else - which.
benkay: ah, right.
asciilifeform: programmatically pissing out transactions is trivial, use your imagination.
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 6100 @ 0.00085899 = 5.2398 BTC [+] {2}
benkay: thank you, asciilifeform.
asciilifeform: benkay: remember that steganography, unlike cryptography, cannot be simultaneously strong and standardized.
asciilifeform: ('standardized stego' is the key hidden under door mat.)

mircea_popescu: benkay well yes, the icelanders are under insane capital controls. what's the surprise here ?
benkay: and yet the aurora coin people are nominally going to give coins to icelandic folk?
benkay: the surprise is that people buy this particular scam.
mircea_popescu: people will buy anything.
mircea_popescu: this is the problem with welfare : this sort of idiot should be on a starvation diet
mircea_popescu: that way you ensure any resources they have are judiciously expended.
mircea_popescu: if they have as much as one cent extra over what the bare minimum their sustenance requires,
mircea_popescu: they'll spend it to buy britney spears records and aurora coins
mircea_popescu: this is a serious problem, because one cent from one billion scum results in enough piled up money for shit like spears and aurora coin to pretenbd like they matter.

Neil: I pointed out the >>= bug about 1 year ago. I got laughed at on the forums.

nubbins`: heh.
Neil: But a bug it is; the code wouldn't pass muster in GCC which I used to maintain.
Neil: The problem is most coders don't know the language they're writing, nor do they care. Hence the crap we deal with. We need more Dan Bernsteins and Matt Dillons.

Neil: NSA doesn't have to try too hard.
Neil: When I release my bitcoin implementation, it may suck in many ways, but it won't have things like that in it.
nubbins`: twist: nsa foresaw digital currency and created bitcoin codebase so that a flawed implementation would ruin people on the idea
Neil: I guess I can celebrate understanding sthg mircea doesn't / didn't 24 hrs ago. There is no problem with the compilers; whatever they do is good; it's all in the language spec and doing something with no defined semantics.
ThickAsThieves: indeed, it also reminds me of the quantum mining guys somehow arguing that soliciting investors to create it would make them rich in bitcoins, while out the other side of their mouth saying that quantum invulnerable wallets can be made afterward

jcpham: mircea_popescu I told someone that MPOE-PR was light years ahead of mtgox the other day
cazalla: heroiness?
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: I think now the trend is China White, or Heroine
jcpham: pretty sure they agreed
kakobrekla: cazalla got a link to that
mircea_popescu: Neil when do you release such a wonder anyway ?
mike_c: the guy is 83, he gets a pass. he has quite a track record of not being stupid.
mircea_popescu: mike_c he easily gets a pass from me too, he can say whatever the fuck he wants
mircea_popescu: doesn't mean i'll agree with what he says tho
kakobrekla: a pdf.
kakobrekla: which includes google docs spreadsheet link.
mircea_popescu: Neil at any rate, i wasn't saying there's something wron with the compilers, i said it depends how shit's implemented. basically, a write-out of "undefined"
kakobrekla: why is the report not on facebook
mike_c: which shows a complete lack of ability to run a sportsbook.
mircea_popescu: kakobrekla because facebook is for porn
mircea_popescu: o no wait.
mircea_popescu: jurov wait, reddit deletes threads ?
mircea_popescu: nah it's there, or at least i see it.
mircea_popescu: hopefully the idiot got told to get fucked by the team.
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: Throws a baseball too good for that. Was told to just watch actual porn and skip the tweets
mircea_popescu: not that idiot. the other idiot.
mircea_popescu: "Matheny told two reporters this morning that he spoke privately to Martinez and that he addressed the team again about their actions on social media this morning."
mircea_popescu: matheny needs to be out of a job.
mircea_popescu: this sort of irresponsible behaviour on his part is intolerable by a major.
mircea_popescu: anyway, if i owned the cardinals he'd be fired.
BingoBoingo: Problem is he is too good as well, at being grumpy and old.
mircea_popescu: fuck him.
mircea_popescu: you don't like porn, you don't get to work.
mircea_popescu: queue at the soup kitchen.

ozbot: BitBet - Any altcoin will surpass Litecoin in market capitalization
benkay: mircea_popescu: u gon have a headache with that one
mircea_popescu: i'd rather buy something cool.
mircea_popescu: benkay tell me about it.
benkay: the "any coin" clause
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: Make it a troll buy around $100k/BTC Matheny will prolly still be there by then.
mircea_popescu: ;;google how much did the cardinals cost last time
gribble: St. Louis Cardinals - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: <>; Red Sox World Series Tickets 81% Higher Than Cardinals ... - Forbes: <>; St Louis Cardinals on the Forbes MLB Team Valuations List: (1 more message)
mircea_popescu: mike_c i have no idea dood, i went to bed fully expecting to see it way lower. i come back... it's gone from 86-87 to what, 84ish
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: $150 million in 1995
mircea_popescu: owch. even at $100k / btc, it'll prolly be 10k btcs or some shit. seems excessive.
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: You forget that whol 'Murica collapsing part.
mircea_popescu: copumpkin can i get a summary ? i just fucking banned youtube.
BingoBoingo: 100k/BTC might be as forgetable a milestone as silver parity

copumpkin: it was a mistake, he was trying to say "caso"

mike_c: commented out lines are pretty bad (or at least a pet peeve). that's what source control is for.
joecool: used to have a tracker for that
decimation: what's wrong with commenting out lines of code? they are crumbs for students
mike_c: what's wrong is they make the code less readable, thereby making it harder for the 2nd programmer who has to touch the code.

mircea_popescu: i dunno, i can't ok this. i mean i couldn't care less either way, it's bettors' btc on either side of the bet.
ThickAsThieves: i have a bet in there
mircea_popescu: but for the love of the sanctity of marriage...
mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves i can't fucking push it either, it's a legitimate contention.
BingoBoingo: I mean scamcoin tricks suggest forcing people to either spec better signals or kill MPOE bot
kakobrekla: firstly, how will you handle 'ends up' ?
kakobrekla: was there an answer to this
ThickAsThieves: if it's legitimate it was from day 1
ThickAsThieves: i think 'ends up' is important to define
kakobrekla: secondly, it doesnt specify if it has to be minable/premined or to which extent that can be
BingoBoingo: This might be a good time to suggest a BitBet, "Bitbet to not accept further Altcoin Marketcap bets in 2014"
ThickAsThieves: 'ends' has a menaing after all
mircea_popescu: kakobrekla nope
ThickAsThieves: precedent at bitbet is to say 'above x rate at any time, or by a specific time' etc

asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: one of these days, you ought to write 'n00b guide' to sports bets. for instance, i grew up thinking of the whole concept as a chumpatron (lusers bet, the sports meisters throw matches & pocket the chumpatronium)

BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: Well, Sauget Illinois is pretty much strip clubs and nothing else

BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: That actually isn't far from the truth
copumpkin: mircea_popescu: whee, it works!!!!!
mircea_popescu: line betting is essentially someone getting in between bitbet and the luser, offering "services" and other customer supports.
mircea_popescu: copumpkin wd!
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform and i don't mean this stylistically. it is factually and quite mathematically exact.
copumpkin: what are these strange cxbtc things I have
mircea_popescu: copumpkin well if you had smpoe and didn't log in for a year you prolly got a buncha divs and whatnot
copumpkin: oh sweet
mircea_popescu: kinda how finance works.
copumpkin: MPOE is by far the best investment I've ever made if you count how much I paid for it and how much it has grown and BTC has grown
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: SPorts betting at its essence boild down to finding players and ownership groups with such animosity towards one another that throwing the game isn't and option.

mircea_popescu: course, this shit takes professionalism (of the actual kind), so there's not that much being done so far.
peterl: copumkin: great way to invest if you have the patience to not get in your own way
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: The nature of how baseball works lends a lot of games to beign interesting sweats. Less so with hockey, still far less with Handegg, and almost never does an interesting sweat come from basketball.
mircea_popescu: why is this ?
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: because of some intrinsic fact about the games? or mere historical happenstance?
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Intrinsic facts in this ordering.
mircea_popescu: do tell ?
BingoBoingo: Baseball's offense is based on an action that at best succeeds 1/3 of the time.
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [AM100] 33 @ 0.0056745 = 0.1873 BTC [+] {2}

mircea_popescu: you know there's a reason detached semi heads are run a certain way
mircea_popescu: too light spells trouble
BingoBoingo: Of course
mircea_popescu: diametric heya
BingoBoingo: The early 1990's though inherited a lot of the ethos of the 1980's where any motor by a company should work with any transmission
mircea_popescu: yeah, because this is how it works in mechanics.
mircea_popescu: also any roman candle should work with any asshole.
BingoBoingo: I may have tested that last one...
mircea_popescu: anyway, i'd love to see the hand-made transmission some afficionado made to allow a dump truck engine in his thunderbird
mircea_popescu: because such a thing COULD be done, and it'd probably be awesome.

mircea_popescu: "I used to sleep under a bridge, not eat, just cry. I hanged myself; it was on a Monday. I took pills, took alcohol, drank cleaning appliances and then hanged myself. But God said, 'It is not your time'."
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: So are you asking if someone can deliver to you a thundrbird with a dump truck motor or asking for opinions whether or not it can be done?
mircea_popescu: i was more like idly trolling for pics

BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: The one big example I say in person was well before I had a computer with more than two colors on its monitor much less a digital camera.
