ozbot: Mike Hearn on Coming Bitcoin Protocol Updates - YouTube
ThickAsThieves: " Jered Kenna interviewed Bitcoin core developer Mike Hearn about BitcoinJ, the Tor network, and what developments are coming to the Bitcoin protocol. Mike explains why BitcoinJ will be using the Tor network for greater privacy and security."
ThickAsThieves: pass everything through NSA plz!
BingoBoingo: ThickAsThieves: And this is why I've never upgraded Multibit beyond version 0.5.11
asciilifeform: they should just build a surrender pit for idiots to jump in.
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [PETA] 4 @ 0.054999 = 0.22 BTC [+]
asciilifeform: where they get reprocessed into biodiesel.
ThickAsThieves: i was speaking with a former military tech at the bar a few weeks ago and he was giving me a shit-eating grin about NSA/Tor
BingoBoingo: Sometime you can judge a book by its publisher
ThickAsThieves: he seemed pretty proud of the notion that most nodes were USG
asciilifeform: wait for... the new, seekuur!1! replacement for tor.
asciilifeform: youheardithere1st (tm)
ThickAsThieves: now he works repo for a bank
ThickAsThieves: telling me how they use pizza delivery data to catch people live n shit
BingoBoingo: I've always assumed actuall turrorists would run their own mini-Tors on botnets they control
asciilifeform: ThickAsThieves: you can repossess a pizza !?
ThickAsThieves: i forget his method
ThickAsThieves: just creepy shit
ThickAsThieves: most creepy was his pride
ThickAsThieves: said stuff like "you dont use tor unless youre doing something illegal"
Duffer1: why won't you let me cavity search you if you're not doing anything illegal
thestringpuller: lol Duffer1
BingoBoingo: Duffer1: Maybe when multiple times a day cavity searching gets normalized, some of the searchers will send the search with notes reading things like " Cavity searched earlier, sphincter torn, proceed with caution"
BingoBoingo: The implications of this are probably the most interesting of anything Coindesk has ever posted on which falls into their shere of having an influence on
BingoBoingo: Apocalyptic: Is x-bt not heartbleeding?
asciilifeform: ...he was giving me a shit-eating grin about NSA... most creepy was his pride << orwell had a pretty good piece on this

bitcoinpete: ;;later tell mircea_popescu i'm not sure if you recognized fluffypony from a few hours ago but that's the same handle as the forum dood you pwned in "Why finance shouldn't be open to your average Schmoe." I recognized the name because i linked to that piece earlier today after someone tweeted about some BTCJam "hack." One fluffypony asked for coins for his kitchen, one for his rig frames…
gribble: The operation succeeded.
BingoBoingo: bitcoinpete: Wait, there's a Trilema about that maybe
BingoBoingo: bitcoinpete: Find it.
ozbot: Why finance shouldn’t be open to your average Schmoe pe Trilema - Un blog de Mircea Popescu.
BingoBoingo: bitcoinpete: And as you do that say a lament to Ultimate Warrior's passing
BingoBoingo: Ah, fucking freenode fixing their SSL...

BingoBoingo: bitcoinpete: Is that the Hashtag?
bitcoinpete: it is now
bitcoinpete: policy on many a topic are set here
bitcoinpete: not necessarily by me, however
ozbot: Jim Hellwig, Known As The Ultimate Warrior, Reportedly Dead
BingoBoingo: I can only assume the NSOMGWTFBBQ offed him to distract from BleedHeart
bitcoinpete: that charlie lee dood is turning out to be a more fucktarded shill than i originally gave him credit for
bitcoinpete: and how is doge still even around? first teh nascar, now this merged-mining noise
BingoBoingo: bitcoinpete: Well, this is Litecoin proposing Doge merged mine and Doge telling litecoin stfu
BingoBoingo: Much as in the past Tenebrix or Fairbrix or shitbrix told Litecoin to stfu
BingoBoingo: This thing is remarkable in how much of a non-story it is... Even for Coindesk
bitcoinpete: BingoBoingo: coindesk is the morning paper for navel-gazers, this is the morning paper for star-gazers
ozbot: The New Morning Paper | When Bitcoin Met Pete
BingoBoingo: Doge miners largely would prolly be cool with merged mining but lack the initiative to hardfork to do it in defiance of their masters. Litecoin minzors ave been screaming hardfork for some time.
bitcoinpete: any idea why litecoin miners wanna fork? first i've heard of it
BingoBoingo: bitcoinpete: That is why it is remarkable CoinDesk had the editorial insight to bring this up.
BingoBoingo: Litecoin miners want all asics to die. The want to only mine when not playing starcraft and mining wow gold.
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: not quite. ltc is the botnet aficionado's coin.
asciilifeform: at least, traditionally
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: It is now.
bitcoinpete: BingoBoingo: thx for the candy mountain link btw :)0
BingoBoingo: For some time before it was GamerPC coin it was secret GPU mined coin
BingoBoingo: bitcoinpete: Welcome.
BingoBoingo: Much as for some time Bitcoin GPU mining was an NVIDIA thing

BingoBoingo: I've actually had one of those assholes shit on my car
bitcoinpete: "one of those?"
BingoBoingo: bitcoinpete: Eagle.
bitcoinpete: i was hoping one of the urban kids (of all races)
BingoBoingo: Driving IL-13 by the Big muddy river and softball sized glob of the worst smelling birdshit I had smelled in my life landed on the Windshield
BingoBoingo: Nearest Carwash was in Pickneyville.
BingoBoingo: Eagles are basically fucking sky rats
Mats_cd03: id shit on your windshield
BingoBoingo: Mats_cd03: You wouldn't be the first land bound critter to either

Mats_cd03: (on that subject, is there a github tipbot like there is one for reddit?)
Mats_cd03: lol 25.89USD
Mats_cd03: fentanyl has saved me hours of work already; patching by hand is tricky, and doubly so on archs i'm unfamiliar with
tg2: anybody have compiler expertise?
tg2: like strong understanding of assembly
fluffypony: bitcoinpete: wow
fluffypony: bitcoinpete: I didn't even know I was the subject of a blog post
bitcoinpete: fluffypony: haha you're internet famous
fluffypony: yeah!
fluffypony: I ended up closing that thread when it was clear it was going nowhere
fluffypony: it seemed like a good idea at the time
fluffypony: but that was ages ago - we ended up making the changes anyway using our access bond
fluffypony: and sold that property 6 months ago when we moved down the coast
bitcoinpete: there you go
fluffypony: also the loan was Dollar-linked, I would never have asked for a BTC loan repayable in the equivalent BTC
fluffypony: that would've been ludicruous
fluffypony: spelling fail
fluffypony: s/ludicruous/ludicrous
bitcoinpete: hey i had a friend who wanted to borrow and repay in btc
bitcoinpete: totally nuts
fluffypony: that is crazy
ozbot: Biting Into The WoT Elephant (And IRC Nicknames) | When Bitcoin Met Pete
fluffypony: also I'm in South Africa - the comparisons with the US are nuts, getting a loan here is a vastly different story and at a vastly different interest rate
bitcoinpete: how so?
bitcoinpete: stricter banks?
fluffypony: there were laws passed due to irresponsible lending
fluffypony: then they tightened EVERYTHING
fluffypony: now they've just been nailed again for irresponsible lending
bitcoinpete: the commonwealth countries are a bit tighter it seems
ozbot: BTCJam Loan (Home Improvement) - 200 BTC Principle, Re-payable over 6 Months
fluffypony: I mention some of the calculaitons
bitcoinpete: gotta keep things stable-ish so they can haul natural resources out consistently
fluffypony: if we'd gotten a loan
fluffypony: the only thing I got wrong in that thread was the interest rate of drawing it out the access bona
fluffypony: *bond
fluffypony: on that property it was bad, but on one of my other properties that is nearly paid off and just being "topped up" the impact wasn't bad at all
bitcoinpete: a full year ago… how long it's been
fluffypony: yeah I know
Mats_cd03: what a dangerous hedge, wouldn't you say, in hindsight?
fluffypony: Mats_cd03: well yes and no
fluffypony: as a dollar-linked loan I would have come out better than borrowing from a financial institution
fluffypony: the lenders would've come out worse because BTC skyrocketed
bitcoinpete: waddyaknow, that guy on twitter who lost his coins on btcjam today because of the openssl "hack" has the coins "restored from their own pockets."
bitcoinpete: s/has/had
artifexd: bitcoinpete I'm glad to see you moved the nickserv stuff out of the footnotes and into the post proper in your wot post.
bitcoinpete: artifexd: yup, thx for the tip ;)
BingoBoingo: bitcoinpete: Prolly best to not refer to my GPG guide as a COMPLETE Wot thing until I finish my IRC guide, which should happen in the next two days
bitcoinpete: BingoBoingo: the weather's too nice for me to change it and change it back in 48 hours :D
BingoBoingo: bitcoinpete: Well on my end it depends on weather as well
bitcoinpete: BingoBoingo ok so i found two examples of my calling it "handy," where do you see "complete?"
BingoBoingo: bitcoinpete: Not on ur blog so much as at times in IRC it seems that complete is occasionally implied
fluffypony: ok right, breakfast time, bbiab

cazalla: bitcoinpete: you make me feel less stupid regarding the pronunciation of MP's name
bitcoinpete: cazalla: lol glad to be of assistance. having romanian friends is a useful window into that world.
cazalla: oh i knew before your article, glad to know i wasn't the only one
bitcoinpete: it's not intuitive for anglos, even francos or españos
cazalla: i think i said before but you were not on irc - i enjoy your writing, it's an easier read for me compared to trilema, that's not a dig though more a reflection of me dropping out of high school
bitcoinpete: cazalla: well tyvm, i very much appreciate that :D
bitcoinpete: trilema hurt my head on-and-off for nearly a year. then it hit me like a shit-ton of bricks

cazalla: still, learning without feeling like it's an effort is a good thing for me
BingoBoingo: At least Trilema isn't Kant
Mats_cd03: fluffypony: so you had a btc float equivalent to the size of the loan?
Mats_cd03: (that is, twice the size of the loan)
bitcoinpete: BingoBoingo: i still need to get to kant. on burke, goethe, machiavelli and beaudelaire now
BingoBoingo: bitcoinpete: Start with Machiavelli and then Goethe
Mats_cd03: nvm i didnt read the entire thread
bitcoinpete: BingoBoingo: just finished the prince 1.5 times through, read of few of goethe's literary essays but that's about it

BingoBoingo: Smoking kicks ass
keonne: agreed
keonne: Makes you look cool as well
keonne: which is extra important for a nerd like me
BingoBoingo: Smoking while drinking coffee with Irish cream is the best.
keonne: mircea_popescu: I didnt realize there was a correlation between dyslexics and esperanto. Maybe something about the rigid structure that appeals. IDK, thats cool though.

jurov: nah, happens to sane people too

keonne: BingoBoingo: There are no advantages to learning Esperanto
keonne: however, some studies have been done, that suggest, those who learn esperanto first find it easier to learn other languages later
BingoBoingo: Studies show lots of things
keonne: indeed
BingoBoingo: Anyone know a good way to crush a boil real fast?
keonne: I learned it because the idea of a constructed language intrigued me
keonne: I don't think you're supposed to crush boils
BingoBoingo: keonne: Crush as in defeat.
keonne: oh okay
keonne: no idea, salicylic acid maybe?
BingoBoingo: Too deep, Naproxen generally handles the inflamation on this one. but for a few years this has been a perenial seasonal annoyance.
keonne: mirecea_popescu: I don't know the details precisely, If you want I can ask someone for you. I'm not in a very technical position, and my understanding of these things doesn't go very deep
jurov: keonee you can learn elvish then, too :)
BingoBoingo: keonne: Do you use a wallet yourself?
jurov: Elen síla lúmenn' omentielvo

BingoBoingo: numerisTrade: Recurring abscess with sinus in a thick fatty piece of skin
BingoBoingo: jurov: Drunk machine translations fail me in this case
numerisTrade: BingoBoingo: more simple english, please?
jurov: lol BingoBoingo... add tolkien - silmarillion to your queries
BingoBoingo: numerisTrade: Can't get much more simple without losing precision
numerisTrade: ok, give me a while, then
BingoBoingo: jurov: I enjoy pussy too much to consider adding those terms
jurov: BingoBoingo: applying heated kitchen salt in linen bag *may* help
jurov: ofc not too close if it's very hot :)
BingoBoingo: I'm leaning kinda more towards complete excision.
BingoBoingo: Less saline more solution and more sowing the fields with salt
numerisTrade: BingoBoingo: probably only surgical drain will help
jurov: yes if it's developed... otherwise antibiotic ointment.. but better ask doctor in any case
keonne: BingoBoingo: I do
keonne: hello mircea_popescu
BingoBoingo: keonne: Have you considered alternatives
numerisTrade: hey mircea_popescu
keonne: BingoBoingo: I keep my spending BTC in blockchain wallet, the rest is on a paper wallet printed at home with a piper wallet
BingoBoingo: keonne: You know historically why retirement funds were separated from their sponsoring companies, right?
keonne: I use wallet to just keep track of the paper wallets
keonne: BingoBoingo: I see no reason not to use for day to day spending
keonne: wait
keonne: that sentence sucked
keonne: but you get the gist
BingoBoingo: keonne: Well local software wallets can handle day to day spending without much syncing burden
keonne: i'm open to alternative suggestions
keonne: BingoBoingo: on my android phone?
BingoBoingo: Multibit 0.5.11, but no later
BingoBoingo: keonne: Root it?
keonne: it is rooted
numerisTrade: what about Electrum?
BingoBoingo: numerisTrade: Also not a bad choice
keonne: most of my day to day spending is done in actual shops, so having my spending wallet mobile is pretty important to me
mircea_popescu: also in the news, matonis "definitely not a stooge", as per matonis.
keonne: besides that I am quite happy keeping my BTC on paper wallet for the time being

mircea_popescu: keonne they don't make you eat own dogfood at bi-wallet ?
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: Matonis is stooge in the original sense, where a stooge is incapable of knowing they are.
keonne: lol no they do not
keonne: BingoBoingo: i dont know about that
mircea_popescu: me either.
mircea_popescu: much unknowns of many flavours in this swamp we live in
mircea_popescu: keonne so how did the correct signature but bad content thing work earlier ?
keonne: no one at bc.i has ever asked what wallet I use. Tehy ask for an address at the end of the month to send me money, and thats all
mircea_popescu: you mean btc. which as we've meanwhile established, isn't money :D
keonne: mircea_popescu: regarding the database thing a couple weeks ago?
keonne: right of course
keonne: unless mr texas gets his way
mircea_popescu: it got a few people, myself included, raising eyebrows
gribble: The operation succeeded.
keonne: honestly mircea_popescu i have no idea, like i said I am not very technical, and those who are weren't very communicative with us about what actually happened
keonne: i know there is an internal review going on
keonne: afaik no funds were lost EXCEPT on sharedcoin
keonne: and we repaid all those
keonne: I wish I could be of more use
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: I can't stahp reading your negro speak article
keonne: lol these reddit comments
keonne: "No this blogger is known for being a bigot psychopath
mircea_popescu: keonne point is : if block signatures and block contents aren't checked against each other, your design is incredibly weak.
mircea_popescu: dja understand what i mean ? it's not just some random attack, it's any and all attacks this creates undue vulenrability to.
mircea_popescu: so talk to whoever's in charge of doing these things there, and have him give you something that's both a) a good answer and b) that they can make public.
keonne: yes that does sound concerning
mircea_popescu: because this isn't something one shrugs off
BingoBoingo: Is piuk still at
keonne: yes
keonne: mircea_popescu: will do
bounce: apropos bank accounts, plenty places it's not a privilege since the government pretty much if not outright requires everyone to receive the bezzle through one of those. easier on the tax man, see.
mircea_popescu: bounce who said a bank account is a privilege lol
bounce: s/tax /tax/
BingoBoingo: bounce: Oh, but the next generation of bezzel includes an alternative
bounce: what, debt bondage cards?
mircea_popescu: you know, i was kinda rooting for the tramp stamp to become rfid govt id.
mircea_popescu: you wanna pay something just buttpress the cashier
keonne: BingoBoingo: that article (negro speak) is brilliant
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo keonne i must admit tho, it's two hours' work on my part and years on the part of mr cody, the folklorist that collected my base material.
keonne: mircea_popescu: rfid tramp stamp, fake japanese characters and all
BingoBoingo: bounce: the many flavors of prepaid debit cards are the thought
mircea_popescu: well yours can just say "keonne", it's weird enough
keonne: yes I saw it when someone posted it in here... punkman maybe
fluffypony: keonne: I would stay away from MultiBit if you're non-technical; Electrum is deterministic so you backup your wallet by writing down or memorising 12 words, much easier
mircea_popescu: but yeah, the jims and johns of this world will need cuneiform or w/e
bounce: peon cards. places like estonia and iceland are pretty close, others are going there with the "unified" gov't id card; matter of time before banking cards move into it. nobody seems to care that the gov't then owns your entire identity yet that much more, either.
keonne: fluffypony: im technical enough not to be an idiot
keonne: not technical enough to give mircea_popescu an answer
mircea_popescu: he's a semi-tractor-technical.
keonne: quite, lol
fluffypony: keonne: Sure - just pointing it out:) Also, there seems to be an issue with multiple reports of MultiBit generating change addresses but not saving the privkey to the wallet, easy way to lose money
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: I know an East StL math teacher that lost half a BTC of mine last year. In short time you can learn a new language.
keonne: fluffypony: yeah i read about that, pretty shitty, i don't know that multibit ahs even acknowledged that issue
bounce: half-track technical would be more interesting
BingoBoingo: keonne fluffypony This is why I specify 0.5.11 or earlier recommending Multibit
fluffypony: keonne: Yeah that's the most worrying part. I know that reproducing the issue is hard, but they have a vested interest in figuring it out
keonne: BingoBoingo: i assumed as much
fluffypony: BingoBoingo: Point
mircea_popescu: tbh im kinda surprised teh tradepress isn't howling all about "in january, 'Bitcoin Baron Keeps a Secretive Open Source OS Alive' ; in april, nsa's crown jool is thrown in the dirt of the public space."
mircea_popescu: this is why bitcoin will rule all fiat : those people can't even keep up with the obvious conspiraci theories.
keonne: mircea_popescu: is this your real name?
keonne: It is a common name in Romania?
mircea_popescu: well the surname is.
BingoBoingo: Firstname is too, the combination isn't too common though
mircea_popescu: the first name isn't quite keonne, but it's a sort of hm.
mircea_popescu: kinda rare.
keonne: When I was 14, I got scammed so hard, trying to buy 100 Motorolla RAZRs from a Mircea Popescu in Romania
keonne: for real
mircea_popescu: well that may have not been *his* real name
BingoBoingo: Maybe was the artist?
mircea_popescu: haha the artist is a kid, like 25 or w/e
mircea_popescu: keonne how long ago is being 14 ?
keonne: 11 years
keonne: Maybe I was 15
keonne: I dont remember, but the RAZR was the hottest phone on the market
keonne: And I sold the phones on to people, before I even had them, ended up in some shit, lol...
mircea_popescu: keonne actually, here's a story followed by fun trick :
mircea_popescu: romania uses a bacalaureat thing, you're not an adult until you pass this exam,. coupla years ago the romanian ed ministry refused (cause inept) to publish the list of results online. and so some people hacked their db and i published the results.
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: I assume the artist named you is older than that
mircea_popescu: ;;google rezultate la bacalaureat sesiunea
gribble: Rezultate la Bacalaureat, sesiunea Iunie 2011, judetul Mures - Trilema: <>; Rezultate la Bacalaureat, sesiunea Iunie 2011, judetul Teleorman ...: <>; Iulie 2011 pe Trilema - Un blog de Mircea Popescu.: (1 more message)
mircea_popescu: so now, theres a list of about 200k kids ?
mircea_popescu: anyone feeling like building a db of name frequency in romania can simply wget and grep and awk that.
keonne: oh wow cool
fluffypony: mircea_popescu: btw I found my blog post today, didn't even realise I was internet famous:) I hope the comment cleared up that I wasn't being entirely retarded at the time!
fluffypony: (Found as it was mentioned her last night when I was asleep)
mircea_popescu: i didn't get to read it yet, because well... i got this endless list of reports to look through yet.
keonne: I suck a grep
keonne: but I could throw together a quick python script probably
fluffypony: Mmmmmm python
keonne: Its okay though. I appreciated that possibly fake mircea popescu - he taught me a good lesson
fluffypony: Every time I try do anything mildly interesting in python I do it in the least pythonic way possible
keonne: at an early age
keonne: mostly, not to use western union for anything ever
mircea_popescu: haha. how much was a motorola razr in the 2000s ?
keonne: I was selling them for 550 USD
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo actually, i suspect you're right. there may be two of them, an old sculptor guy and a teeny pictor.
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: I dunno the youngun
keonne: I bought 10 of them from Mr. Popescu for around that price
ozbot: Mircea Popescu - artist vizual - Timisoara, Romania
keonne: well, by bought, i mean sent him money via western union
fluffypony: keonne: Ouch
keonne: I bet I still have all the emails
mircea_popescu: lol what are you, from the btctalk forum ?
keonne: lol like i said, a good lesson early on
fluffypony: The internet was a different place then, everyone trusted each other with no real basis for it
mircea_popescu: fluffypony you're thinking the 90s.
mircea_popescu: that's a different time.
keonne: the 00's i think were the exact opposite
mircea_popescu: pretty much.
keonne: it wasnt about me trusting this dude
keonne: it was me trusting Western Union, and not understanding WTF i was doing
mircea_popescu: ha. sounds exactly by the book.
fluffypony: mircea_popescu: Ah I thought this was the 90s
keonne: yes, by the book, hope he ate well, compliments of the stupid american
fluffypony: Brain fail
mircea_popescu: he probably paid some debts, got a coupla girls for a long weekend and that was it.
keonne: good
mircea_popescu: or maybe he saved it and bought lehman stock.
keonne: haha
mircea_popescu: i knew a guy like this, was hysterical. had a bookie biz, old skinny guy, megasmoker, huge glasses
keonne: yup i still have the emails
mircea_popescu: he meticulously avoided mixing "earned" moneys with "bezzled" moneys
keonne: yeah it was through alibaba haha
mircea_popescu: because he believed the latter is much more likely to "go" to similar "business"
mircea_popescu: so whenbever he was putting dough into something dubious he really wanted to succeed, he used the former pile for it.

keonne: reddit was like diggs ugly step sister
mircea_popescu: i mean, sure slashdot sucks today, but one day it was a big thing. meanwhile 9gag or baumwhatever never were big things

mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo: So... what Open source alternatives are there to OpenSSL which aren't as much of a bitch to read? << this is actually a very large, and very open problem.
mircea_popescu: we kinda need a pki replacement standard.
BingoBoingo: So much so
BingoBoingo: Really a Python, LISP or C for retards readable imlementation
bounce: let's start with the type of model we'd like there. hierarchical is "natural" for over-enthousiastic devs but doesn't work all that well in practice.
Naphex: there is PolarSSL and CySSL
Naphex: but more aimed for embedded work
BingoBoingo: Naphex: Explain
bounce: a WoT thingy makes more sense, but is harder to work with and harder to understand
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform more than semiconductor chemistry i'd say. lynn conway wasn't 40 years ago was she ?
mircea_popescu: bounce the traditional wisdom used to be that (booklength spec + half line user manual) beats (one page spc + one page user manual), because you do the book once and then the millions of users are saved a million pages.
mircea_popescu: this is inspiured by ... ford t pretty much
samson_: PolarSSL is perfect for all sorts of platforms, Windows, Linux and MacOS included
mircea_popescu: yet i suspect we're getting to a point where it's actually becoming false, and nobody has the oversight to call it.
mircea_popescu: samson_ who makes it ?
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [AM100] 42 @ 0.00579967 = 0.2436 BTC [+] {4}
Naphex: used in openvpn and cyassl was/is used in mysql
Naphex: Polar has dual license while cyassl is gpl
samson_: The picocoin project is being forked to use it
bounce: hmm. well, there is a good incentive to conciseness (see EWD1300, at least first two paragraphs) but "the GUI beliefs" overshot it in a grand way, sort-of coming out the other way
Naphex: i have used both in some embedded work, when something lighter then openssl was needed.
samson_: They only added EC in PolarSSL recently
bounce: s/incentive/rationale/ really, the incentive is a bit lacking
mircea_popescu: bounce this is true.
BingoBoingo: Lighter for lighter's sake isn't really the aim though
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo it is when i dress...
bounce: the "TL;DR" thing is a nice misunderstanding, by the by. don't put summaries at the bottom, where I find'em after I read the article.
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: That rationale for dressing fails at higher latitudes though to the reality of cold.
mircea_popescu: i guess so.
bounce: "oh yeah I coulda said dis in one line but I only thought about it now" -- no real copyediting going on.
mircea_popescu: bounce you have to understand the us mentality, as aptly described by al pacino in devil's advocate.
mircea_popescu: they WANT to scroll past the text in order to get to feel bad about how they're not reading it.
BingoBoingo: Prolly fails the most in one of my favorite James Bond flicks when Felix Ligheter for Lighter's sake gets chewed by a shark
mircea_popescu: puritan mental issues.
bounce: heh. derpage in a can.
mircea_popescu: it's a thing tho. your average "man's rights" dood on a forum somewhere is only happy in an "unhappy" marriage.
mircea_popescu: that sort of contorted, psycho stuff.

mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo i should send you a bottle of this here cognac
mircea_popescu: it passes the morning after test
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: I like cognac. I'd have to get cigarettes that aren't menthols, but I like that family of liquors.
mircea_popescu: sadly these idiots have gotten it to where i can't send you a bottle.
mircea_popescu: fuck da man, srsly.
BingoBoingo: Really, I mean I can literally order a liter of vancomycin concentrate on the jsutification that I have an itch. Fuck the man.
bounce: happy to be unhappy neatly glosses over the sad state of consumerist computing where the app is supposed to do the thinking, since to you it's supposed to be "intuitive", thus "no training needed" and thus we have large swathes of functionally illiterate people pushing buttons
bounce: funny how that keeps on biting
mircea_popescu: ;;later tell ThickAsThieves of course you don't use tor unless you're doing something illegal. EVERYTHING YOU CAN DO IS ILLEGAL!
gribble: The operation succeeded.
mircea_popescu: then the people who think try and insulate themselves, and this is how thinking became a crime in the us
mircea_popescu: and in the soviet union before that,
BingoBoingo: I liek how allegedly the msot illegal thing I have done in my like was supposedly making a fucking phone call
mircea_popescu: consider this illustrative piece :
mircea_popescu: "We would never strike a student and whether the software is pirated or not is not the issue. He denied having the drive which means he knew he shouldn't have it here then it was found in his bag so I feel the punishment is suitable."
mircea_popescu: so basically the ad baculum argument reduces to "he knew we have the stick, therefore he should get the stick"
mircea_popescu: then people wonder why and wherefore it's game over. well who the fuck would want to play with you!?
BingoBoingo: Maybe we can improve on a topic raised on Goat's forum?
mircea_popescu: "it was found" derp. i dunno wtf land of the free you live in, i went to scvhool in communist romania. yet a teacher'd not have dared go through your bag.
BingoBoingo: Back in the day wouldn't have been dared here
BingoBoingo: But nao that Ibuprofen has been a drug for so long
mircea_popescu: i guess may account for why putin "doens't understand how the world works".
mircea_popescu: incidentally, i wonder what % of the us agency agents are actually drug free. not pretend-free, not pass the test free, but actually, as a lifestyle.
mircea_popescu: afaik the fsb still by and large is.
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo isn't 54 a little young to die ?
BingoBoingo: For small sample sizes I can gather, in the US the actual drug free figures are small
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: Eh, UW only was one year short of my pappy
mircea_popescu: this sounds like the fucking pleistocene all oer again.
BingoBoingo: My hypothesis on why Putin can't understant how the world works though is that the world just doesn't work because it has no benefit from doing so.
BingoBoingo: The world just is.
BingoBoingo: No matter who or what slaps it on the ass the world can just persist in being.
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo it was obviously a jab at a roomfull of potheads telling the sober guy that "he doesn't understand how the pretty colors work"
mircea_popescu: well duh. they ain't there.
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: In the US in any niche there is always a puritain contingent of some pretending to bees. Generally the higher in any gov niche the more they dominate.
BingoBoingo: I've only met one person who worked at DISA though and they were shipped to London after racking up more DUIs int he states than Mr Bond himself.
BingoBoingo: The Robert Hansen puritain to a fault type though at the higher levels of government security organizations is not that rare in the US though.
mircea_popescu: bitcoinpete: and how is doge still even around? first teh nascar, now this merged-mining noise << it's only "still around" in the sense of noise. like you know, the dead aren't really dead if you remember them :D
mircea_popescu: ;;later tell bitcoinpete it's even been announced, some fork. basically they want to fork it because htey perceive they should be given more of this world than the ycan take by themselves, for themselves, and they perceive it's unfair that just as soon as an algo of division is established, better people get more than them.

BingoBoingo: I the US the Hooverites paited him as the devil, worse than Castro, but he gave Russia its booze back.
BingoBoingo: So I can't complain.
fluffypony: mircea_popescu: I showed my wife that blog post
fluffypony: She was laughing
BingoBoingo: However the Hoover lives on in US 3 letter culture in that alcohol is more poisonous to many of those factions than coke (which the CIA loves for obvious reasons)

mircea_popescu: you know there's a guy who tried this in 2012 for similar reasons ?
mircea_popescu: he got really buttreamed, but he did pay off afaik, and one of the few to do so.

mircea_popescu: i did notice it. i discarded it, too, cause who the hell is giving you a fiat loan.
keonne: ok, off for a bit, cheers
fluffypony: mircea_popescu: Btc jam had the option, I figured it wasn't unheard of for loans with a term of more than like 2 weeks

dexX7: hey i'm still thinking about the heartbleed stuff and was wondering: how could one - in theory - do something nefarious with this? user sessions aside, but what else is flying around there?
mircea_popescu: if you get the server's keys you can a)impersonate the server and b) decrypt all its traffic, thaty you previously stored.
BingoBoingo: Pretty much this is the worst of all cases that the mainstream security community would have supposed
dexX7: so this would be great for phishing for example?
BingoBoingo: Or Spear Phishing
BingoBoingo: Or DNS hijacking
dexX7: but the server's private key is usually not exchanged, i think?
BingoBoingo: Or just running a high traffic router and scooping up ciphertext
mircea_popescu: dexX7 for anything.
BingoBoingo: dexX7: Heartbleed extracts that key
mircea_popescu: dexX7 but it has to be in memory.
mircea_popescu: anyway, if you're looking for more of a perspective thing : this is without a doubt the largest vulnerability ever reported in the history of vulnerabilities.
dexX7: hm right. to encrypt something, you'd need the key, therefore it's somewhere
mircea_popescu: bar none, nothing comes close.
mircea_popescu: it's larger than the cookie monster, and that thing had the advantage of there only being about 50 computers total.
BingoBoingo: dexX7: This allows extracting privates, so it allows Decrypting
dexX7: how likely is it such a flaw is implemented by accident?
dexX7: or rephrased: was it placed there to be exploited by some party?
mircea_popescu: how likely is it that you're really my wife and are currently pregnant with twin bald eagles ?
BingoBoingo: How often does the sun just stop fusion for a few minutes to catch a breath
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo funny factoid : the sun fusion is not unlike mining. it could in principle be the case a finite interval goes without any emission.
mircea_popescu: not likely obviously
mircea_popescu: but hence the solar cycles etc.
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: Well, of course the possibility exists that the sun stops totally for a measurable period of time, but...
BingoBoingo: Like mining... How often actually
dexX7: hehe.. no i mean.. people make errors, that's for sure, but sometimes one would say "you'd need to be very, very stupid, do to an error of this kind and it's likely no one sane would ever do something like this". and i'm wondering, if this is the case here
mircea_popescu: this is an implant not an error. at what level in the process the implanting starts and cluelessness takes over is still unclear.
mircea_popescu: the implanting ends*
BingoBoingo: dexX7: Basically if your were stupid enough to err this way, you were to stupid to concieve of this way to err

mircea_popescu: fluffypony is rape quite so bad there as they say ?
fluffypony: mircea_popescu: yeah, you can't minimise it, but it's a problem in the townships and villages and not so much in the suburbs
fluffypony: but traditionally speaking women are not viewed as equals, so the men can just do whatever they want
joecool: hmm, doesn't openssl also have weird licensing that would prevent a fork?
mircea_popescu: so not exactly a race thing as much as a gender thing ?
mircea_popescu: joecool not at all.
Naphex: lol
mircea_popescu: just a huge workload for very little pay that prevents a fork.
fluffypony: mircea_popescu: both Afrikaaners (white) and native South Africans (black) have a similar view of women
fluffypony: although culturally that view developed independently of the other
mircea_popescu: well most people alive, or historically existing had the same view.
fluffypony: the younger generation is better with that
mircea_popescu: well "women" in the traditional sense hardly exist in the newer generation. it's pretty much a genderless soup
mircea_popescu: kinda have my doubts of this weird construct's chances of survival, but we see.
fluffypony: the problem is that the women-as-sex-objects view among native African males leads to some weird crap
joecool: ah, yeah just looked it up, it has the advertising clause that makes it incompatible with GPL without an exemption
mircea_popescu: well yes but iirc it was bsd licensed
fluffypony: like a complete disregard for logic when it comes to "rape a baby as a cure for AIDs"
fluffypony: because women + babies aren't = men
mircea_popescu: well, that part can even be set aside. raping babies does not actually cure aids.
fluffypony: mircea_popescu: yep, but the idea persists
fluffypony: anywhere you live you compromise
mircea_popescu: yes, inasmuch as embodiment is an imposition.
fluffypony: here it's crime + economy

benkay: fluffypony: so if there's an idea that's worthless, and the execution is everything, if you've made strides on execution that is a 'moat' in the parlance, ensaftifying your idea.
mircea_popescu: benkay you mean ensafeizing.
asciilifeform: to avoid having to aim the scope, it would have to be mounted on... the user's crotch level.
asciilifeform: (codpiece?)
robwhiz22: mircea_popescu - you wrote that you do not want to PM and that's not likely to change. Could you therefore answer here to the proposal I submitted to Polimedia?

mircea_popescu: dude naggum rules.
fluffypony doesn't know the parlance. at all.
asciilifeform: robwhiz22: i imagine you'd have to confess here wtf the 'proposal' is
mircea_popescu: Getting C programmers to understand that they cause the computer to do less than minimum is intractable. They would not /use/ C if they understood this point, so if you actually cause them to understand it in the course of a discussion, you will only make them miserable and hate their lives. People are pretty good at detecting that this is a likely outcome of thinking, and it takes conscious effort to brace yourself
mircea_popescu: and get through such experiences. Most people are not willing even to /listen/ to arguments or information that could threaten their comfortable view of their own existence, much less think about it, so when you cannot answer a C programmer's "arguments" that his way of life is just great the way it is, it is a pretty good sign that you let him set the agenda once he realized that his way of life was under threat. Sin
mircea_popescu: ce you have nothing to defend, your self-preservation instinct will not activate hitherto unused parts of your brain to come up with reasons and rationalizations for what you have done, you will not be aware that you have been taken for a ride before it is over and you "lost".
asciilifeform: or else your answer wouldn't make sense

mircea_popescu: " If you deny people the opportunity to defend something they feel is under threat, however, some people go completely insane with rage and actually believe that you threaten them on purpose and that you willfully seek to destroy something very valuable to them."

mircea_popescu: benkay don't worry, the past two dozen lines were all a setup for me to say "become benkay"

bounce: including the thing about warm necrofilia?
mircea_popescu: hm i guess im the only one knowing what calophilous is supposed to mean.
fluffypony: probably, I've never heard the word
mircea_popescu: it's a love of the form of phrase, unrelated to meaning. a fixation with getting aliterations and formal perfection.
mircea_popescu: you know, like coders.
asciilifeform: tone poem

robwhiz22: mircea_popescu, when I wrote you I quoted your announcement on cryptome in which you explicitly welcomed letters such as mine. Whether you have any interest in anyhting beyond it, or since abandoned that interest, is up to you to communicate.

benkay: it's injunctive.
fluffypony: or self-defining
mircea_popescu: bounce just about ... half of them ?
robwhiz22: mircea_popescu, yes. I opened my to you with: Dear Polimedia, \n In casually researching the Cardano I came across your announcement on Cryptome: \n \n Which includes, in part, "Critique of the product welcomed."
bounce: well a big name german guy entirely hung up on language, can't remember his name. there's gotta be irony in there somewhere.
mircea_popescu: aite, so go ahead an' critique it.
asciilifeform: interesting that someone might write a whatever re: cardano and not ask me.
robwhiz22: You have my letter. The cardano is not fit for any purpose today. (But this can change easily.) Why don't you read my letter then.
bounce: it sux! -- there, universal critique of teh intarwebz. where's my cookie?
benkay: robwhiz22: share your shit.
benkay: stop derping and put it to the test.
asciilifeform: i especially look forward to hearing about how the widget is 'not fit for any purpose.'
bounce: a letter in the mail/ in braille/ to johnny quest/
asciilifeform: positively salivating!
mircea_popescu: robwhiz22 dude. i sent a letter to the guy running cryptome. because i know he's qualified. he published it. i see no problem with this. i am more than willing to extend the welcoming of critique to his readership, because if he judged this is a good idea i'm going on his hand.
benkay: worst case scenario you can replace me as class clown
benkay cartwheels off
mircea_popescu: i am however not transforming this into "please send me anon emails". you want to critique it, either publish it on cryptome, that critique, or on your blog, which i may eventually read if you're anybody
mircea_popescu: or else i guess here.
robwhiz22: asciilifeform, why don't you get your boss to accept my proposal and you can stop salivating :)
nubbins`: why don't we just keep this circular "discussion" going instead

However insecure a computer might be to which it is connected, so long as a Cardano does not leave your possession, its private key can be relied on to work, and to be uncompromised, while it remains on the physical Cardano which does not export it under any circumstances.

Shakespeare: robwhiz22 dpaste it and link it here then
Shakespeare: you'll get the benefit of all eyes
asciilifeform: lisp, of whatever kind, without emacs, is quite like trying to do international business without knowing a word of english
asciilifeform: certainly possible
daybyter: but take a look at scheme. I prefer it over lisp now.
robwhiz22: That is not how product proposals work, Shakespeare.
mircea_popescu: i kinda like nano
Shakespeare: it is here
mircea_popescu: most of the trilema that's not written in vi is written in nano
bounce: used to use pico for ages.
asciilifeform: at the very least, you need an editor that will match parens and auto-indent for you
Shakespeare: mp is trying to tell you, you dont decide how things work
asciilifeform: and, preferably, can be wired to the evaluator for real-time experimentation
nubbins`: i still use pico when i have need to create flat text files
asciilifeform: this leaves... emacs+slime (and an obscure, experimental variant of 'vi')
nubbins`: (this isn't often)
robwhiz22: It would not be responsible disclosure if I were to pastebin the rest of hte email here.
nubbins`: ^ AHA
nubbins`: now we're getting to it
Shakespeare: so you think it has a security flaw? then tell asciilifeform
Shakespeare: he made the damn thing
mike_c: how can you say it would not be responsible disclosure when that is exactly what the manufacturer is asking you to do.
asciilifeform: robwhiz22: you may wish to consider becoming distinguishable from a nigerian spammer
Shakespeare: also it isnt even in the wild
Shakespeare: you arent hurting anyone
nubbins`: /timer 15 ^

bounce: upshot of having tech development go much faster is that now, if you're trying to dig "forgotten" tech back up, the people who originally made it might still be alive. not so much with, oh, the roman taxi meter, or things like that.
robwhiz22: mircea_popescu, if you like I can prepare the disclosure for public consumption. You can then release it. For obvious reasons of haste, I did not include a highly polished and edited write-up with the preliminary email.
robwhiz22: (But did included the main disclosures, which together make the current Cardano specs unfit for any purpose - although it is very close to being fit.)
nubbins`: so titillating
bounce proposes to include robwhiz22 in the premium version of the rng. such noise!
robwhiz22: You will have the write-up to do with as you want, including releasing as-is. However I do not think that type of disclosure is necessary. I would suggest you simply deploy the specific mitigations in the verison that ships.
mike_c: have you seen nobody polishes their turds around here. just publish it.

robwhiz22: mircea_popescu, thank you for the compliment :) But the proposal is not the work of an organization. I would, as stated, personally offer it. As well it has its limits and must be taken in as just an internal proposal.
robwhiz22: mircea_popescu, unlike the NSA which tends to hand-wave as they propose certain specific vulnerabilities without giving reasons, my reasoning is stated. This is part of why it is a bit difficult to prepare the proposal in full and I don't do it except if an initial offer is accepted.
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [PETA] 2 @ 0.05799 = 0.116 BTC [-]
robwhiz22: mircea_popescu, i.e. because it must be well-thought out, detailed, and edited, with supporting arguments. It is quite a bit of work to do an internal design proposal for these reasons.

TestingUnoDosTre: November 28, 2013
TestingUnoDosTre: bitstamp high happened November 30, 2013
mike_c: unrelated. plus, who cares. next one isn't for 2 years.
benkay: supply and demand curves always hold, mike_c
mike_c: yes.. but supply != block reward
benkay: you're entirely wrong.
mike_c: oh yeah? well, YOU'RE entirely wrong.
benkay: supply is that which is constant!
TestingUnoDosTre: if you're talking about mined BTC, that supply definitely dropped
TestingUnoDosTre: say like, 50 percent
benkay: the only constant input in the system is the mining reward
benkay: sorry that was rude of me, mike_c
mike_c: (not butthurt). but the system being discussed is supply on the exchanges. which is not equal to freshly mined coins. many other factors.
benkay: input into system
TestingUnoDosTre: ooo I like that... like a thermodynamics equation
benkay: only valid frame of reference, TestingUnoDosTre
jborkl: Benkay is right supply is static, it is demand we don't know about
TestingUnoDosTre: how is supply static?
TestingUnoDosTre: *during a diff change
jborkl: We know how many btc there will be next year
TestingUnoDosTre: approximately
benkay: we know how many btc there will be per block
mike_c: it's not static. supply is not how many btc there are, it's how many are for sale.
jborkl: That is demand
mike_c: no, buyers are demand. sellers are supply
benkay: supply is input into the system
benkay: its the only way you can make the thing conserve
benkay: which is the whole damn point
mike_c: for instance, mp has a bunch of coins. they are not supply because they are not for sale.
jborkl: That is not more coons
jborkl: Coins
benkay: yeah
benkay: heh
jborkl: Heh badbtypo
benkay: a hoard is in no sense supply
TestingUnoDosTre: they will be if Bitcoin does worse than BRK-A this year
mike_c: right. and if miners are hoarding coins, block reward is not supply

mike_c: benkay: it is fine to say it is an input. but i am saying it is a miniscule part of the equation.
TestingUnoDosTre: His example is slightly hogwash, as mtcox falsely increased the supply of bitcoins, and the price still increased.
jborkl: Bugpowder was a excellent trader
jborkl: That is to what he is referring
jborkl: Short term sentiment
thestringpuller: Bugpowder was a compulsive gambler too.
jborkl: And if mtgox inflated the supply of coins so the price should have been depressed
jborkl: I did not say he was a good gambler
jborkl: He was not good at that

mike_c: see, i told you it wasn't an input ;)

TestingUnoDosTre: no disagreement there

nubbins` raises hands, shouts with glee
benkay: ;;later tell mike_c sometimes i think supply is constrained on the fiat -> btc pipe. if cash and reputation and connections are all you have, that's not a terribly wide pipe. perhaps there was something to gox' occasional ability to turn fiat wires into btc

nubbins`: Mats_cd03: three-page application form. we didn't have to fill out the whole thing because we pay up-front with credit cards, but if you want to do net 30 etc, you have to provide business references and a ton of extra info
nubbins`: also had to sign a contract stating that we won't, among other things, reveal prices nor will we resell undecorated garments
MisterE: bit of a selloff on the BOA news
Mats_cd03: i see
nubbins`: that said, same-day turnaround once we submitted the application
nubbins`: for reference, a plain AA unisex tee is about 40% more expensive than our go-to shirt (organic cotton) and 150% more expensive than our "discount quality" shirt
