Naphex recommends using dedicated servers instead of virtual anything.
jurov recommends network of VPSes distributed to different suppliers
jurov: now if I can figure out how to sanely manage it
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 16650 @ 0.00079366 = 13.2144 BTC [-]
xmj: jurov: ansible ?
Naphex: why would you do anything on a hypervisor you don't control is beyond me.
pankkake: because it's THE CLOUD
Naphex: you can even skip thinking that anything stored there is secure. cause everything is available to the hypervisor and who runs it
xmj: Do you run a binary linux distribution like Fedora/EL6,7/Centos, Debian, Ubuntu, ...?
Naphex: your ram, your encryption, your keys, your storage, your IRQs
Naphex: i compile from source on verified sum packages
fluffypony: I'm moving all of my sites on to iCloud
fluffypony: I'll be writing them in Swift
Naphex: then snapshot that and use it to clone servers
Apocalyptic: fluffypony, sounds like a win
fluffypony: Apocalyptic: yeah it's really going to save me having to learn JavaScript and using Node, that seemed way too complicated
fluffypony: although I hear mongoDB is the best database because even CoinBase uses it
Naphex: "Objective-C without the baggage of C."
Naphex: so..
Naphex: i like it how they beat python in it trololol
jurov: xmj when on every machine is potentially different distro, and even roles of the machines are different?
Apocalyptic: and they chose on the most used crypto algorithm today... behold RC4
pankkake: why would you use a different distro?
jurov: because they don't offer the one i want?
pankkake: oh, well, that sucks
pankkake: though yes I don't use Gentoo on VPSes
jurov: but it has some sweet upsides, part of coinbr infrastructure is down all the time, i can fix it later when I have the time
jurov: nobody noticed so far :)
Naphex: well, it shouldn't be down in the first place
jurov: well, since the part(s) running mpexagent is/are at physically hardly accessible place
jurov: some redundance is in order
jurov: are your keys physically inaccessible at secret locations, naphex?
Naphex: jurov: what keys?
jurov: coinbr needs gpg keys to trade on mpex, obv
jurov: and they must be online
jurov: so i had to hide them behind some layers... and using physical machines for all of them whould prohibitively expensive
xmj: jurov: as long as they have python installed, no problem
xmj: jurov: Ansible is pretty powerful even in heterogenous envs.
fluffypony: don't be sexist
fluffypony: even hetero servers need love
xmj: we use it from jenkins with different nix variants including centos and ubuntu
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [AM1] 2 @ 0.22001595 = 0.44 BTC [+]
Naphex: jurov: i have a whole cluster of servers :p secret keys run on encrypted hardware, servers run bare and have several layers of security & apis for it.
Naphex: cold wallets can just be multisig
xe4l: Morning
jurov: xmj i'm still pretty much in the beginning, so far it seems saltstack has more fitting primitives
Naphex: everything is physical, on _owned_ hardware in special datacenters.
jurov: good for you
xe4l: I dont't understand the need for special datacenters
Naphex: well, don't know how much of a need it is
jurov: =DCs protected by specnaz
xe4l: unless your saying private colo, as in you alone have physical access
xmj: jurov: saltstack is brilliant if you want a master/client setup with at least one master configuring multiple clients
xe4l: otherwise an EQ or whatever is equally good
Naphex: but having datacenters with qualified professinals and an actuall account manger. + guarded access to the datacenter
Naphex: also you don't want shitty datacenter support running with your hard drives
xmj: Naphex: I like owned hardware. Co-location and self-owning is factually less expensive. but you'll have to maintain the hardware, which can suck.
Naphex: so you better make sure if its serious you pick a very good datacenter, with protection and other several high profile customers
xe4l: can always get a cage at EQ and swap the locks out
Naphex: xmj: if you pick good hardware and balance rightly there is not that much maintainance
Naphex: i mean replace and ocassional broken drive every year or so
fluffypony: xmj: please don't be sexist
fluffypony: master/slave is bad terminology
xmj: Naphex: yep, but definitely more so than when you outsource that whole thing to someone.
Naphex: and deprecate/switch some servers
xe4l: The trick is to have your dynamic capacity all on the cloud and use the hardware for things requring a high degree of trust
xmj: Naphex: obviously depends on your biz model.
Naphex: i mean, if you're making dough
xmj: if you're interested in building infrastructure, that's different
Naphex: you better hire a sysadmin
Naphex: and some coders and a designer
Naphex: to maintain your shit
Naphex: or just quit or sell it or whatever
Naphex: no point in delusioning yourself forever with outsourcing, and clouds, and virtual stuff
xmj: Naphex: we're in 2014
xmj: clouds and virtual stuff _just works_ and has been for five years.
xmj: sysadmins are called 'devops engineers'
Naphex: well thats just washy washy
Naphex: too me it just sounds like lazy developers and lazy bussiness owners
Naphex: who just want to run their shit without every thinking about anything
Naphex: and meanwhile profiting
pankkake: the fact is that devops don't understand the first thing about unix
pankkake: my time at devops events = oh my god what am i doing here
Naphex: yes the webdevel generation
xe4l: there's a large disparity in the skillset of people with a devops
pankkake: it usually works fine until it doesn't
jurov: Naphex you do everything properly and they you get forced to surrender ssl cert to cloudflare anyway
jurov: upo thread of expulsion from the dc
Naphex: jurov: i've never heard of threat of explusion from dc, and if you get that just move. louzy dc
pankkake: that wasn't trolling?
Naphex: a dc should have proper ddos mitigations, and solutions for ddos/dos. and the worst case scenario they should cut your upstream
xe4l: I've never heard of that
Naphex: and recover after that
jurov: you have such dc in romania?
xe4l: Naphex: maybe if your dealing with bottom rate providers, why not build your own edge instead of using whatever blended they have
Naphex: jurov: yes
Naphex: i am very happy with my dc, they have everything <3
pankkake: but do they have clouds?
Naphex: nowadays yeah
Naphex: my AM tried to sell me some cloud :)
Naphex: i told him to shove it
Naphex: but i still doubt they sell any cloud
Naphex: most of their customers are banks, and all kinds of srsfolk
pankkake: do romanians pronounce cloud in funny ways too?
Naphex: caca
Naphex: cacacloud
Naphex: i mean, hey if you want some virtualizing buy 10 servers, host some hypervisor
Naphex: and run them up and down
Naphex: host your sendmail on vps1, http vps2, whatever
assbot: Clouds - Radical Cutting Methods - YouTube
fluffypony: my biggest gripe with the cloud
fluffypony: is that a VPS of any measurably decent performance
fluffypony: costs me the same as a dedi box
xe4l: not really
Naphex: i mean whats this thing about costs nowadays
xe4l: there are quite a few inexpensive cloud providers
fluffypony: xe4l: oversold resources cannot compete with dedicated resources
Naphex: or just everyone poor?:)
mircea_popescu: am i the only one that most enjoys writing dismissal letters of all the letter types there are ?
Naphex: 200eur/month for 32GBram sever, with 32 cores, and some fast storage
Naphex: run your shit forever
mircea_popescu: not even ransom notes are this much fun
xe4l: agreed, but that's not the use case of virtual servers really
xe4l: I wouldn
xe4l: run my main db on a vps, but I would run a bunch of read slaves, web servers, etc
xe4l: things I wanted to rapidly scale based upon demand
mircea_popescu: dub: im struggling with how this person is profiting from all this manip^HHHrket making << i don't see how it could be a single person, it makes no sense
mircea_popescu: also it's ^H^H^H
mircea_popescu: hi xe4l. who are you ?
xe4l: I doubt theres a single site in the alexa top 250 that runs purely off of cloud without basically purchasing the equiv of a physical box, eg: AWS provisioned vps
fluffypony: xe4l: last year I had to reindex a large database table (a necessary evil occasionally). I thought to offload it to a VPS provider, Linode or DigitalOcean or someone, so as to avoid needing to choke my db server. Needless to say, 12 hours in they shitcanned the VPS slice because of "excessive resource usage".
xe4l: friend of joecool, infosec/nix/network/etc person
fluffypony: so now if I need something like that I just fire up and pay by the hour for a dedicated box to do the work
mircea_popescu: welcome.
xe4l: thank you
mircea_popescu: fluffypony, basically "the cloud" is just the new marketing gimmick, used to be "unmetered access shared servers" in 2004
mircea_popescu: get INFINITE BANDWIDTH for $5
xe4l: p.much
xe4l works for a very fast growing cloud hosting company
mircea_popescu: why in the hell.
mircea_popescu: *: Naphex recommends using dedicated servers instead of virtual anything. << im with him jurov. i would guess all the romanianz on the internet are with us. which means YOU ARE IN THE MINORITY. all of youse.
jurov: wut
mircea_popescu: fluffypony: I'll be writing them in Swift << and in a little while you can be known as rapedpony
fluffypony: hah hah
mircea_popescu: jurov, wut wut
jurov: trouble parsing that statement
pankkake: I've had to read it twice
pankkake: ovh really did have infinite bandwidth but they were apparently looking for it
mircea_popescu: pankkake, economics are economics. i get that the large peering networks mostly peer for free, but that "free" is a hidden cost
mircea_popescu: (you must offer equal capacity, which has a carrying cost on the books
fluffypony: Darkcoin fanbois eventually back down when cornered and admit there's no cryptographic grounding:
assbot: Ozziecoin comments on PSA: Don't fall for Darkcoin's deceiving marketing and pump and dump. It's just a copy of CoinJoin (created by a Bitcoin core dev, for Bitcoin), and does not give perfect anonymity.
mircea_popescu: and even if you do make it huge, the ops will just start charging you for THEIR carry capacity, which you've now made a scarce resource through your managerial incompetence)
mircea_popescu: fluffypony, what i like is how "a core dev" is dropping the use of his actual name.
fluffypony: "Evan brings Darkcoin over 17 years of software development experience and an interest in artificial intelligence, financial markets and economics."
fluffypony: because when you want a cryptographically sound solution to anonymity
fluffypony: what you really want is a developer with an economics background
pankkake: that is 17 years old
mircea_popescu: jurov: so i had to hide them behind some layers... and using physical machines for all of them whould prohibitively expensive << actually the one secret in all of btc i;m most curious about is the complete schematics of the rat's nest jurov no doubt built.
assbot: DARKCOIN
fluffypony: "Kyle brings over 25 years of experience in System Administration and Development. "
fluffypony: more relevant skills
mircea_popescu: i don't tend to spy on allies (unlike the us, let it be pointed out) and so i guess that's one thing to look forward to once he's extradited
mircea_popescu: ok you two im bashing that
mircea_popescu: anyway, iirc coinjoin was gmaxwell's idea originally. ended up in a lengthy discussion with midnightmagic over its dismerits a year ago
jurov: mircea_popescu: it's kinda reverse of the schema of mpex proxies you have posted
mircea_popescu: jurov, i can't imagine there aren't piles of strange in there.
mircea_popescu: fluffypony, give them a link to that team of muppets, lemme find it
fluffypony: OH they keep throwing that out
fluffypony: or is that the X11coin crowd
fluffypony: yes them
fluffypony: so I link them to mintcoin files in the X11coin github repository
fluffypony: and they're like "FUD! FUD!"

mircea_popescu: i wonder what % of github traffic can actually boot a physical machine in any arbitrary os provided they get the distro.
mircea_popescu: (lowest qualification for any driver : can actually start any one car, irrespective of make or model)
jurov: lol when i got for first time a (rented) car with automatic gear
jurov: could not figure out how to put it in reverse
jurov: had to read the manual for 10mins
mircea_popescu: Naphex: jurov: i have a whole cluster of servers :p secret keys run on encrypted hardware, servers run bare and have several layers of security & apis for it. << i wager someone paid for a lot of brazilian waxing so far.
fluffypony: I find automatics very jarring and disconcerting to drive, lol
mircea_popescu: yeah, they're the mac os of cardom.
pankkake: reverse seems to be the only non standard thing in cars
mircea_popescu: all the fucking buttons are in unexpected places.
pankkake: as for github I'd say under 10%
mircea_popescu: pankkake, remember back when it was cool ?
pankkake: what was cool?
jurov: ponies
fluffypony: now moiety is going to get excited
fluffypony: jurov: ponies have never been cool, I'm the eternal hipster
mircea_popescu: xe4l: can always get a cage at EQ and swap the locks out << actually most midrange dcs don't let you swap locks out
fluffypony: "Q: Sometimes I get redirected to another site called “organicmoneyfarm”, what the?" LOL!!
mircea_popescu: some charge a fee for it.
jurov: waitwhat? bronies != hipsters now?

mircea_popescu: xmj, im sorry ?
xmj: mircea_popescu: if you do a startup, with an idea in mind -- highlevel one -- and let yourself get distracted by hardware/network issues right in the beginning
xmj: mircea_popescu: then that's just you doing it very very wrong as those shouldn't be part of your business in the beginning.
xmj: s/business/core business/
jurov: xmj, you should praise github then
mircea_popescu: the universe where a heroic twentysomething starts leinterwebs bizniss is a very interesting fictional metaverse. we revel in retelling the stories of adventure and glory much like some women enjoy watching telenovellas.
xe4l: github actually has a decent setup these days
mircea_popescu: but meanwhile, business is made by businessmen not by aspi[rational] kids
Naphex: xmj: hey distracted, since when do you do high level apps, and not think about the hardware they are running or the performance you want to get out of it
Naphex: picking hardware to run your shit should be one of the first steps
jurov: with decent 0days...just that anyone can commit anything
Naphex: and if you can't do it, hire someone who can
xe4l works with the people that previously worked at github

mircea_popescu: now this may be true.

Naphex: lean startup strategy == fail startup strategy?

xmj: exactly
Naphex: see, now it takes 2 days
Naphex: to buy some servers
Naphex: and install em
xmj: and thinking about low-level crap like hardware and network infrastructure just is not conducive to your MVP.
xe4l: sadly, as much as is I love building the perfect thing on the first go, it's not terribly pheasable unless it's a b2b business
mircea_popescu: xe4l, what's the rush anyway.
xmj: exactly
xe4l: b2c demands you begin to get feedback from your customers
xe4l: so you can start tuning the product
mircea_popescu: or to put it in another perpsective, if you're in any hurry either your product isn't in a good enough market or your financial structure is shit.

It will let you use Siri via raise-to-talk to back all your wallets up to iCloud. It's being written in Swift and will use mongoDB as a backend. It can scale nearly instantly because it will just fire up new AWS instances on-demand. Our development methodology is fail-fast-fail-often, where we'll write an iteration, and then once that
fluffypony: code has failed in production we'll shut the startup down, start a new one, buy the old one out, and then repeat. We call this Multi Startup Synergistic Prefailure, and it's inspired by the work of Tsukino Usagi.

If you want to address that, write software that makes Bitcoin easier to use and accessible to more people. If you can't code, learn a language and help translate. Essentially, do anything *but* whine on Twitter and your blog.

chetty: and some of us (bitcoin women) are actually doing stuff even
jurov: inb4 bitcoin grandma
danielpbarron: part of my argument comes from my belief in The Bible which clearly says that all women should submit to a man (whether their father or their husband) and they should only do something (like coding, for example) if their man ordered them to do so; it's not a very responsible man that delegates his programming needs to a woman (who is probably better suited for things like child-rearing (although exceptions may apply))
TomServo: blowstampgrandma
jurov: (i can totally see something like that come from SA)
pankkake: I had no idea chetty was a bitcoin woman until a few weeks ago, which is how things should usually be on the internet
pankkake: nobody should know if you're a dog
pankkake: TomServo: lel
princessnell: i used to think to myself "well, these women are at least promoting the tech in a way that other women can understand." but they're only thinking of it as a consumption tool, which is worse than doing nothing at all.

asciilifeform: jurov: i've a small collection of various cheapo 'arm' boards, just like everyone. the 'pi' collects dust. did recently get openbsd running on another one (beagle?) recently.

asciilifeform: 'real' microcontrollers are far more interesting. the proliferation of the cheap arm boards is really because today's hobbyists piss their pants at the thought of learning asm
jurov: i'm using pi just as an illustration that people you may want to get interested in lisp start by getting emotionally hooked onto coding, regardless of what's available being utter crap
asciilifeform: (a 'traditional' micro has a few kb of ram)
jurov: and then continue on the trajectory, never even getting to know there's something better
asciilifeform: jurov: clisp builds on arm. but sbcl doesn't (the latter has no interpreter mode, it has a high quality optimizing - real time - compiler on x86 and a few other archs.)
asciilifeform: lisp on a microcontroller that isn't optimized for high-level languages (a la the greenarrays forth chip) isn't much fun. it's like going back to the mid-80s, when microcomputer owners justifiably scoffed at 'slow' languages
jurov: python isn't either
asciilifeform: the python linked earlier (diametric?) isn't a proper python, where the interpreter is available at run time, but, as i understand, a simple batch-mode compiler.
asciilifeform: (anyone who read the entire manual, please correct me if i am mistaken)
jurov: idk, it boasts "REPL in 2K RAM"
jurov: but this discussion is getting derailed again anyway
asciilifeform: if they actually fit a python in 2kb, that's pretty neat.

asciilifeform: a successfully 'mined' brainwallet is... a failed iq test.
BingoBoingo: And then there's also the problem of "place can have problems too"
asciilifeform: if herr torquemada is working on you, your wallet is lost, regardless of what kind (only real countermeasure is cyanide tooth or the like.)
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Tooth must be dangerously fragile though, so one can have a standoff end with a swift movement of the tongue.
asciilifeform: actually, one possible technological countermeasure is: to carry around some gizmo that will transmit a transaction moving your coin to a trusted confederate, when the pin is pulled.
asciilifeform: easier said than done, though.
asciilifeform: (if you actually want to do this: have multiple allies, shamir-split a key, then set 'dead man switch' that broadcasts the magic tx if you fail to reset it for x days, etc)

asciilifeform: i'll point out that it helps to have a clear picture of what your objective will be once you're hanging upside-down in torquemada's workshop.
asciilifeform: is it to persuade him to turn you loose? to transfer your coin to your fellow partizans asap, because you are certain to perish anyway? some other goal?
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Reasonable option seems to be dead man switch sends the coins to Mugabe

asciilifeform: think of how funny it'd be, setting up elaborate dead man switch, then captured by a fellow who just wants to sell your organs.
jurov: or slipping up home in the bathroom
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: I think at that point you have to play the Hannibal card and try purchasing organs yourself.
BingoBoingo: I'm also rather sure my organs aren't the sort to fetch top dollar
asciilifeform: deterrence weapon naturally doesn't make you immortal - the best possible use of it is to cool the enthusiasm of folks who'd like to hasten the inevitable.
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: There was this Simpsons episode back in the day where it was revealed the elderly hero had the gift of immortality to the sheer number of terminal diseases he had forming a sort of homeostasis sustaining him.
asciilifeform: my organs aren't the sort to fetch top dollar << the 'i own just the shirt on my back' defense worked pretty well historically. if the enemy finds it convincing.
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: I'll have to manage to keep a thick stench of cigarettes and booze sweat through the Darien.
asciilifeform: however, the reason why it is customary to sit a captured wretch on an anthill, or the like, without first inquiring about his assets, is that in such a situation the definition of 'assets' expands to everything the victim could potentially beg/borrow/steal

BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Assuming they don't want library books... Probably going to get drafted as a drug mule.

BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: It isn't that there is benefit derived from it. It is that when we can beat the Coindesks to the aggregators, it injures them in ways only they can rationalize.
BingoBoingo: bitcoinpete: Well, I'm gifting you that Canadian modesty.
bitcoinpete: asciilifeform: there's most certainly benefit derived from twitter and west nile isn't the half of it

BingoBoingo: If you BTC address auth it's the stupid signature thing...
Phinnaeus: I could reply to the person who sent me here via PM on BT
BingoBoingo: Phinnaeus: That's me. I'm Atruk on the forum.
Phinnaeus: Just sent you a PM
BingoBoingo: Tis indeed you
Phinnaeus: You can me me, too. 815-508-1668
BingoBoingo: Phinnaeus: But if you know I'm 618 that's like... 3/5ths of the state's area I could be in
BingoBoingo: I also can't register you with the bots... Once you are registered I can rate you.
BingoBoingo: My powers though are limited.
BingoBoingo: MP probably can explain this all more elegantly
Phinnaeus: How important is to be registered?
BingoBoingo: Phinnaeus: Well, it is a huge convenience thing.
Phinnaeus: Ahhhhh
BingoBoingo: You can give yourself voice in channel
mike_c: asciilifeform: do you know if this is true? "EC-based keys are just as secure as RSA keypairs"
BingoBoingo: otherwise you ask people and they will probably give voice.
BingoBoingo: Phinnaeus: But the keys to give and take voice only are offered to registered people, because crypto
Phinnaeus: Bring me up to speed. What's "take voice" and what's the purpose of this IRC channel (any IRC channel)?
BingoBoingo: Well, this channel exists because... Maybe someone can explain it better...
BingoBoingo: Basically "Forum has problems"
BingoBoingo: Phinnaeus: Voice, giving and taking of it, is an idiot silencing and anti-spam measure.
Phinnaeus: Remember, I'm the Bitcoiner that doesn't mine, nor host a client. And, trust InstaWallet with my 1,132 BTC of which davout (staff of BT) now has in one of his fat-ass wallets.

Phinnaeus: I've been on here for 30 minutes already?
BingoBoingo: So it seems
nubbins`: time flies :D
Phinnaeus: ...while you're taking a shit...literally!
nubbins`: you may also wish to use an actual irc client instead of the web interface, lots of handy features like tab-completion for nicks
nubbins`: for example, i just type "ph" and hit tab to get "Phinnaeus"
BingoBoingo: Phinnaeus: also, courtesy of asciilifeform here's Hannah and Mircea in the same picture if you haven't seen it already

moiety: then an irc client will be nothing :D
moiety: i have gone back to xchat and i have no idea why. i'm missing smuxi
BingoBoingo: Or smuxi's another good one.
BingoBoingo: moiety: Is it the SASL plugin?
Phinnaeus: I thought Hannah was the primer on elliptic curves.
BingoBoingo: That's actually fluffypony's photoshopped wife
peterl: nubbins`: wow, I didn't know that about tab completion. Learn something new every day!
Phinnaeus: I guess after a few more sessions here, I'll get up to speed as to how to use this IRC thingie.
nubbins`: peterl, hang around me and you'll learn a few new things every day
Vexual: i keep my left hand on tab always
nubbins`: Phinnaeus: a dedicated client can also highlight lines with your nickname, play a sound when you're mentioned, etc
moiety: BB, no what's actually bothering me is the colours. everyone had their own before and i guess i just got used to it. now its in blocks of i'm not sure but they are definitely shared
Phinnaeus: So that's where The Thinker keeps his left hand.
Phinnaeus: I do hear the sound part.

asciilifeform: decimation: VHDL to a 7400 TTL netlist << certainly. i think brad parker (author of CADR, symbolics, and TI LM emulators) had a widget that does just this.
decimation: one could use a commercial tool and hack it, but it would be neat if there were a tool that took into account gate delays etc.

decimation: no doubt, EC is better to implement in the hell that is javascript
moiety: just how big are these tshirts btw nubbins`?
nubbins`: moiety depends on the size ;)
decimation: but I suspect the majority of existing GPG keys use RSA (or maybe elgamal)
asciilifeform: Vexual: what are you making re: 7400s << nothing at present

BingoBoingo: moiety: It was.

asciilifeform: -- story interlude -- a lab i once worked in used to house such an experimenter. he was eventually caught in diverting his stash to the black market, and imprisoned. the next guy inherited a few kg of coke.
asciilifeform: he refused to sign for it. ended up contacting various commercial disposal companies
asciilifeform: none of whom wanted the liability
asciilifeform: finally, a funeral home agreed to cremate it.
decimation: lol. I'm pretty sure the DEA tracks that stuff to the mg
asciilifeform: (on account of it being exempt from air pollution regulations, as i understand.)
nubbins`: "method of disposal: vacuum"
asciilifeform: the events took place long before my time, so story is to be taken with grain of salt.
nubbins`: i found it amusing that LSD was the only drug he didn't include trip reports for, on account of there being so many thousands in the literature already
