decimation: why can't folks simply "re-imagine" the legos they have in front of them?
asciilifeform: or, as described on my site,

asciilifeform: note that the hardware aspect of this is trivially achievable today
asciilifeform: without exotic vlsi versions of magnetic core memory, at that.
decimation: indeed a static global address space that is persistant and usable would be a reasonable project
asciilifeform: but you gotta ditch post-1970 os crapola to take actual advantage.
asciilifeform: that means all of it.

asciilifeform: decimation: you must really think about this to understand the implications. a single-address space machine must... actually work. every time - because it can in no sense be rebooted.
asciilifeform: (no distinction between disk and memory)
decimation: the cache can be refreshed
decimation: but presumably the OS comes on an EPROM
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i imagine rebooting = pulling memory out
asciilifeform: it's not orthogonally persistent if this actually does something useful
asciilifeform: (when was the last time you pulled your disk's cache sram out?)
mircea_popescu: yes well. marketingis not intended to be that hard semantically.
unbalanced: Don't I need 2 hit points? Or just the one?
justusranvier: There could be dedicated areas in the memory space that could be hardware wiped, and operations resumed from a hardcoded address. That would be like a reboot.
mircea_popescu: even the most accomplished anal insertion artist, who can take ANYTHING would not survive a parachute-less parachute fall
asciilifeform: justusranvier: this is what's on your desk now, essentially.
mircea_popescu: even if theoretically the planet is part of "everything"
asciilifeform: orthogonal persistence is something quite else.

asciilifeform: decimation: you don't need an address space as such if anything that might conceivably need to communicate with, e.g., keyboard, has an actual (matrix switched) electrical connection with it.
asciilifeform: that is, there is no reason why, say, garbage collector circuit (yes) needs to be able to request a byte from my keyboard buffer.
asciilifeform: just as you presently cannot dereference a pointer to your disk's sram cache
asciilifeform: and you live with this
asciilifeform: the brain-damage of the 'address space' concept is inescapable on a von neumann arch
asciilifeform: but if you have the option of doing the last 35 yrs. of hardware again - you can toss it.

asciilifeform: only the circuit that marshalls state from the independent modules (e.g. keyboard buffer) to magnetic storage needs to know that it's a disk, and comes in 0...N 'LBA' blocks, etc.
asciilifeform: if you have the magnetic ram (actually available commercially, no need to wait for hp) you can dispense with the disk.
asciilifeform: and build the actual state in fpga out of same.
decimation: using magnetic ram for each of the LUT modules?
asciilifeform: correct

mike_c: ThickAsThieves: thanks for the dump
unbalanced: Hey, I took that dump. That's my dump! But thanks for the later-ing ThickAsThieves.
mike_c: hehe, then thank you too
unbalanced: Heh. You said "dump". Heh.
unbalanced: Regret voicing me yet?
mike_c: not yet. what kind of diff change are you trying to get this period?
unbalanced: I figure that the -25% to -50% range is desirable, as long as it doesn't fall so far someone can't easily spike it up 4x again.
unbalanced: But really, "easily" is a relative term so this may be a fool's errand.

mike_c: i don't worry about the coin dying, but +80%/-80% diff changes are annoying.
unbalanced: thestringpuller, you too can live the dream!
thestringpuller: call it Crypto Trail
mircea_popescu: mike_c they don't seem to be hurting anything tho do they ?
mike_c: they do to me.
mircea_popescu: unbalanced so in th end how much did you end up paying per atc trying to mine ?
mircea_popescu: mike_c how ?
mike_c: having a block an hour does not feel optimal.
unbalanced: The diff is still unfolding so I don't have a final number yet. I haven't wanted to calculate it or I might stop.
mike_c: i ran the numbers, but I won't tell if you don't want to know :)
unbalanced: thestringpuller, by "dump" mike_c meant a pastebin link somewhere above, detailing how to use to employ mining rigs on demand.
mircea_popescu: mike_c sotell me then :D
unbalanced: See also #altcoin... that channel needs new blood.
unbalanced closes his eyes
mike_c: it's like we have discussed before. it affects merchants. it's not as easy to move coin around. this makes little difference for the occasional user, but 1 hour block time on average means sometimes 2+ hours for a block.
unbalanced: Rough back-of-the-envelope I'd say 400 satoshis per ATC if I'm lucky. Is that what you got mike_c or am I off by an order of magnitude?
mike_c: i got 371
unbalanced: Profit!
mircea_popescu: mike_c what merchants ?!
mike_c: and i ran the numbers before btc diff went up, so it could be better
mike_c: cuz the miners should have dropped in price.
mike_c: mircea_popescu: x-bt for one. is satoshijack still around? plus possibly some other merchants in development.
mircea_popescu: mike_c haven't heard from the satoshijack dude in a long time
unbalanced: Yes, I guess a tslb of >1hr only matters if the coin is moving around more than once an hour. Or day.
mircea_popescu: i really don't see th econcern. if anything, slow txn are good for a coin, they keep the people in a hurry at bay
mircea_popescu: the only folk it really hurts are speculators, of the redditard type
mike_c: JD wouldn't be happy if gamblers had to wait 1-2 hours to deposit money
mircea_popescu: mike_c would you take the jd gamblers to dinner ?
unbalanced: You know MP, I'm testing my ATC wallet. Could you send me all your ATC, and then I'll send it back?
mike_c: mircea_popescu: i would not, but i'd gladly take their coin.
unbalanced: Purely routine. Just a test. No, no need to read the fine print. Just sign here.
unbalanced: See, with ATC you can relive the early days of BTC!

mircea_popescu: Mats_cd03 me either tbh
davout: to me it sounds retarded to confiscate such an amount on a suspicion, especially when the suspected attacker has no economic incentive to be attacking in the first place
mircea_popescu: "My guess is that they never expected to get caught and suffer income loss as a result of their attack. But, once they were caught, I put a filter in place to block them from the payout queue (similar to the block on known MtGox addresses). Eligius’s offline wallet now has roughly 200 BTC work credits held from the payout queue under the attacker's addresses, that we have stopped them from stealing."
Vexual: well the other 50% prevents it, and as you tend to 100%, it becomes unprofitable
mircea_popescu: so elegius is stealing from some miner they had an argument with.
Vexual: how godly
mircea_popescu: why the fuck would someone keep a 200 btc balance, and esp with elegius, is beyong me.

mircea_popescu: nubbins` the announced price will be under market rate. the "winner" will not actually have to pay anything, but will have to support usg policy.

mircea_popescu: bitcoinpete they're not limited to being accessible to us citizens. they're limited to being accessible to that one corp that makes the most convincing case it'll be useful.
nubbins`: there's gotta be at least a few financial institutions/hedge funds/whatever that want btc but don't want to purchase from a foreign exchange, guy on the street, etc

mircea_popescu: if they do a reverse-ipo for instance it'll stick.
bitcoinpete: mircea_popescu but i do suspect someone leaked teh d. series plans, because they've been moving before i said that. << can you explain "they've been moving?"
mircea_popescu: bitcoinpete the "we're selling bitcoin" news manipulation went in days before the "i'm going to kill your "investment" news manipulation" announcement.
mircea_popescu: why not at any prior point for the past... year ?
bitcoinpete: there's room for coincidence
bitcoinpete: i mean, the number of people who knew about d.series

mircea_popescu: traders talk. if they didn't, they couldn't trade. it's a complex beast.

mircea_popescu: davout generally i might do something like "in case of acquisition by listed corp, you get the delta for the next 30 days"

ThickAsThieves: a jewelry gift bag, and a annual meeting invitation
nubbins`: how about kickass cotton paper?
mircea_popescu: silken finish ?
ThickAsThieves: mp make sure you are clear on the difference between metallic ink and foil embossed
nubbins`: ah, cotton finish?
mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves im clueless. halp ?
nubbins`: foil embossed looks like gold leaf stuck to the paper
ThickAsThieves: ink looks like graphite basically
nubbins`: could shave in it
ThickAsThieves: foil looks like metal
nubbins`: i think i have pics of gold ink on cotton, one sec
mircea_popescu: ah that's what i want, foil embossed
ThickAsThieves: of course showing pics of metallic ink...
ThickAsThieves: doesnt get you much

TomServo: mircea_popescu: It's a good possibility.
mircea_popescu: so nubbins` can you do foil embossed over paper that looks like i cut it out of a high class whore's bedsheets ?
ThickAsThieves: i should also note, i personally find foil to be supremely tacky
nubbins`: yeah, foil sucks
mircea_popescu: that's the point.

nubbins`: ^ gold ink
mircea_popescu: ah tjat's not so bad
nubbins`: it shimmers
mircea_popescu: way better than just some graphite.
mircea_popescu: nubbins` got a foil one anywhere ?
ThickAsThieves: yeah the gold ink does come off better than the silver
nubbins`: we're not set up for foil
ThickAsThieves: embossing is nice too
mircea_popescu: i see. okay! so why are there two "colors" of gold ?
nubbins`: that's the light shining off it
ThickAsThieves: cause it's metallic

danielpbarron: Ssateneth, what flies in -otc doesn't necessarily fly in -assets

BingoBoingo: mdev: Ghash fucks up, hopefully enough miners like money to flee.

mike_c: log.b-a or my blog still requires trust. blockchain doesn't, but i'm not a fan of abusing chain for this kind of stuff. pastebin i guess works. nobody would believe they were in on the scamz.

mircea_popescu: actually stuffing it here is probably better.
mircea_popescu: blocks reorg. how do you know you won't end up on a dead chain
kakobrekla: you wait 6 confs.
mike_c: the thing is, it depends who you are "proving" to. since i am a b-a lackey, clearly i could get the logs mucked with. and nobody is going to care that fluffypony's copy agrees with it.
fluffypony: yeah I suppose
fluffypony: you could've paid us all
mircea_popescu: it's on the web lol.
mircea_popescu: but anyway, since you're in bitcoin, clearly you could have the blockchain mucked.
mike_c: true. i do own ghash.

mircea_popescu: "something important happens when a previously privileged position in society suddenly sees incredibly demand that needs to be filled, using enormous quantities of manpower. that happened to programming computers about a decade ago, or maybe two. first, the people will no longer be super dedicated people, and they won’t be as skilled or even as smart — what was once dedication is replaced by greed and sometimes she
mircea_popescu: er need as the motivation to enter the field. second, an unskilled labor force will want job security more than intellectual challenges (to some the very antithesis of job security). third, managing an unskilled labor force means easy access to people who are skilled in whatever is needed right now, not an investment in people — which leads to the conclusion that a programmer is only as valuable as his ability to get
mircea_popescu: another job fast. fourth, when mass markets develop, pluralism suffers the most — there is no longer a concept of healthy participants: people become concerned with the individual “winner”, and instead of people being good at whatever they are doing and proud of that, they will want to flock around the winner to share some of the glory."
