nubbins` raises other eyebrow
nubbins`: anyone else around?
mircea_popescu: careful you might run out.
Duffer1: moo?
dub: i agree with nubbins`
nubbins`: try passphrases kLuzx7GDPg8uXRawaZG9ndU7hfTd8CBHSTCCffSdzLA and BXZKQx2iLYyRpUCmdWCqJBvgUdvqWH4EE8TV1ns3pxLZ
nubbins`: paste addresses here
Duffer1: 1P2vYukzmiGp5B7otkDakvubVFmkiv7b3y
mircea_popescu: nubbins` dude srsly you ended up with the magic salt
mircea_popescu: fell on the exact bundle pw ?
nubbins` slowly reaches for gun
nubbins`: no man
mircea_popescu: do you even know what the odds are ?!
mike_c: 13VBRJStiTVkJYUrvAdCvFdvFhVecRkb1e / 149LB8VYaT1BdMLyQUL92Kj6KrJfNwcp64
nubbins`: kLuzx7GDPg8uXRawaZG9ndU7hfTd8CBHSTCCffSdzLA as passphrase produces 13VBRJStiTVkJYUrvAdCvFdvFhVecRkb1e
mircea_popescu: what the shit.
nubbins`: mike_c: +1
Duffer1: fascinating
nubbins`: something's fucked somewhere
nubbins`: with several of you
mircea_popescu: 19xKa5GkCBFM9XnEcHp1mjoiXi7x7oXKzn <<<
mircea_popescu: let me take a ss just in case.
mircea_popescu: maybe im putting it in the wrong hole.
nubbins`: er sorry
BingoBoingo: I thought brainwallet was known to be retarded for some time
mircea_popescu: it has been, yes
mircea_popescu: this seems a novel sparkle tho
mod6: yikes
nubbins`: wtf?
mircea_popescu: nubbins` am i doing it right ?
mircea_popescu: lemme paste the js
mike_c: mircea_popescu: whitespace matters
mircea_popescu: mike_c where ?
Duffer1: 13VBRJStiTVkJYUrvAdCvFdvFhVecRkb1e / 149LB8VYaT1BdMLyQUL92Kj6KrJfNwcp64
mircea_popescu: i have no whitespace.
mike_c: in the passphrase.. if you have any
nubbins`: mircea_popescu i verified w/ a brainwallet generator i wrote myself
mircea_popescu: so im on the brainwallet orphan chain over here ?
nubbins` throws up hands
mike_c: doge-brain
nubbins`: i have no idea what your cpu is smoking
mircea_popescu: <nubbins`> i have no idea what your cpu is smoking26d8fca64af52e7712a8ed89e8fd34ce9b22ee5e2b1800776cbb1434c200825d -
mircea_popescu: it can't be the case it can hash here but not there, my cpu
nubbins`: <nubbins`> i have no idea what your cpu is smoking26d8fca64af52e7712a8ed89e8fd34ce9b22ee5e2b1800776cbb1434c200825d -
dub: someone swapped your CPU for a potato
mike_c: this has gotta be a JS thing.
nubbins`: just put a single "1" in the passphrase
mircea_popescu: oh, make passphrase = 1
mircea_popescu: 17oEDveGfjVDuMyxbTHT6vw1Qvu2w2k9aV
mike_c: 12AKRNHpFhDSBDD9rSn74VAzZSL3774PxQ
mircea_popescu: obviously.
nubbins`: 12AKRNHpFhDSBDD9rSn74VAzZSL3774PxQ
dub: 12AKRNHpFhDSBDD9rSn74VAzZSL3774PxQ
nubbins`: hahahah
nubbins`: protip: "secret exponent" = sha256sum
mircea_popescu: 5a692302f4231563cfeedaec090567e2477cebfa67d27d016a017bcd64c01911 5JW712UGBYBxp3UGNSzcQBGnPdpAsQMRKcczWJP8SJ65hiHV5WU
nubbins`: if your secret exponent is not 6b86b273ff34fce19d6b804eff5a3f5747ada4eaa22f1d49c01e52ddb7875b4b then something is borked
mircea_popescu: something is defo borked.
nubbins`: well i guess your week just got interesting
mircea_popescu: i guess it helps that i just wasn't using anyway
nubbins`: anyway. does anyone know how the fuck deeds generates these brainwallet passphrases? :D
nubbins`: 'cause i'm at a loss
asciilifeform: brainwallet was known to be retarded for some time << brainwallet is a fully-automatic iq test.
assbot: Last 1 lines bashed and pending review. ( )
nubbins`: seems like punkbot is the iq tes
asciilifeform: unrelated: << a little riot of a book. no-bullshit guide to (failed) attempts at ab initio sovereignty. (i met the author in person, incidentally. fun fella.)
asciilifeform never knew it was on the net, was actually about to w4r3z sc4n it & post, then found...
TheNewDeal: what in the hell is that
asciilifeform: TheNewDeal: old book.
TheNewDeal: nonono, the js dump
asciilifeform: deedbot?
asciilifeform: or possibly 'brainwallet' ?
asciilifeform: aha brainwallet.
nubbins`: deeds is voodoo
nubbins`: 50 satoshi says it's generating random addresses
mircea_popescu: TheNewDeal it's the dump of js as loaded on my system, because somehow it doesn't come to the same results as other people here.
mircea_popescu: yes, thing
asciilifeform oils, waits for clients
mircea_popescu: *actual results could significantly differ
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i may have said this in the past, but this is rather like my 'elephant procurement company' (gedankenexperiment)
asciilifeform: i.e., i will procure elephants in a day, but no one will like what it costs.
asciilifeform: ('this' being my - so far hypothetical - little shop of ho^h^hcode review)
asciilifeform: but, at least it promises never to substitute chair leg with sticker 'elephant' on it.
nubbins`: mircea_popescu fwiw the function calc_hash() in your pasted JS is the one doing the lifting
nubbins`: var hash = Crypto.SHA256($('#pass').val(), { asBytes: true });
nubbins`: $('#hash').val(Crypto.util.bytesToHex(hash));
ben_vulpes: <mircea_popescu> ricoletta << haw
nubbins`: you may be interested to paste a passphrase and in your JS console, type $('#pass').val()
mircea_popescu: no dragonfly here tho.
nubbins`: no chrome install either, i suppose?
mircea_popescu: heh. nope
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu is on doom-playing box!
nubbins`: well i guess you just can't trust random web pages to generate your brainwallets ;D
mircea_popescu: nubbins` which works just as well, as i don't,
mircea_popescu: HOWEVER! it would seem to me this arrangement i got is actually stronger than youze
mircea_popescu: because if i were to use it, and you did get my pw... you still couldn't steal my monyz ?
nubbins`: certainly prevents dem fundz from being stole
nubbins`: "best locks in the world"
nubbins`: "where's the keys?" "what?"
asciilifeform: you still couldn't steal my monyz << reminds me of all the folks with misaligned heads on their floppy drives
asciilifeform: disk would read on given unit and only there.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform the frist time this happened, 5 inch drives, 11yo or so me & friends
mircea_popescu: it was fucking nuts
asciilifeform: where do you think i stepped in it.
mircea_popescu: we took the unit on a sneakernet see what happens at everyone's house
nubbins`: ;;later tell punkman plz to provide complete pseudocode for deeds
gribble: The operation succeeded.
asciilifeform: this happened, perhaps three or four times, to mine, same era; father took it each time to a greasemonkey in some illicit cellar; it would come back - wrapped in a filthy oilrag - aligned.
asciilifeform: (never saw anything but ru drives misalign.)
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: 'The benefits of which one can’t evaluate, the drawbacks of which are certain.' >> obligatory >>
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform there actually existed special allignment disks
mircea_popescu: you could fix the thing with a steady hand and an amp
asciilifeform: greasemonkey probably had.
asciilifeform: today - i'd align the bugger myself
asciilifeform: it'd be a diversion.
asciilifeform: but today, other toys.
asciilifeform: familiar << because ~everyone alive has seen it ?
mircea_popescu: for any good definition of "alive".
decimation: asciilifeform: they were gonna launch a rocket tonight, visible from your house
punkbot: nubbins`: No valid deeds found, try again.
decimation: chincoteague
nubbins`: oh ya, must be signed
nubbins`: so much for testing simple case
decimation: wallops island, one of the orbital rockets
ben_vulpes: good god this log
ben_vulpes: what have you been doing
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes it's not as big as it seems.
decimation: interestingly, it uses "AJ-26" engines, which were 'commercially purchased' by usg from... the soviet moon program
asciilifeform: rocket << must've missed.
decimation: turns out they were sitting surplus in ukraine for 30 years
ben_vulpes: ;;later tell pete_dushenski lol negatron brogrammer
gribble: The operation succeeded.
decimation: now the grassfuckers in charge buy them and call it 'commercial technology'
asciilifeform: eh, fire sale.
ben_vulpes: mircea_popescu: i dropped out
ben_vulpes: ;;calc 9234 - 8414
gribble: 820
ben_vulpes: lines ago
ben_vulpes: HERE WE GO
decimation: we need to move off irc and onto a radio net
asciilifeform: rocket << rescheduled apparently
mircea_popescu: grassfuckers, this is a notable innovation.
decimation: yeah there was a boat in the 'no-boat' box
decimation: I think they are gonna try tomorrow
decimation: i'm sure it will be very bright and visible if it is a clear night
mircea_popescu: decimation are you going to fly any pilot drones around it ?
decimation: not me, I'm a zek
ben_vulpes: <asciilifeform> it's as if we were still using teletype << funny story, biz partner bought hisself some gps chips
ben_vulpes: had loads of fun discovering the parts of the unix stack responsible for baud rate etc
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes no fucking way today's log is 10k
decimation: I bought a chip that puts out 1pps to discipline my ovenized quartz oscillator
ben_vulpes: mircea_popescu: lol off by 10x
asciilifeform: parts of the unix stack responsible for baud rate << i can recite these in my sleep now.
ben_vulpes: me, i mean
decimation: talk about ancient terminal cruft
ben_vulpes: wait no actually mircea_popescu u
asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: i always found it interesting that synchronous serial (between machines, notably) never caught on.
ben_vulpes: <asciilifeform> in my studies, i'm particularly interested in the 'suck' that no one even notices any more. << so relevant
mircea_popescu: kakobrekla: funny, we have physical virtual coins, but most money is in fact virtual physical money instead. << it's all a function of the small amounts of quantity involved.
decimation: asciilifeform: it is used in golden toilet projects
asciilifeform: in golden toilets, usually items like 'can bus'
asciilifeform: and the .mil equivalnet
ben_vulpes: <Abelincoln> << that this is not <Abelincoin> should have been enough to prevent !ups
asciilifeform: *equivalent
asciilifeform: pisses out bits, does not wait for ack
decimation: ah I thought you meant synchronous with the clock line
decimation: << "* Ternary, Binary, (RS-232); or RS-422 "
asciilifeform: brainfart
decimation: apparently usg uses ternary serial
asciilifeform: classic teletype was 2x1trit
mircea_popescu: jurov: instead of -----START/END OF WHATEVER------ use dedicated uncode chars <<< ftr i hate this idea.
ben_vulpes: <asciilifeform> (summary. aliens come, they have males, females, and ooloi. the latter run things and are really the only sentients. humans quickly discover that fucking in 3some with ooloi 'adapter' is the only really fun thing.) << gripping hand?
mircea_popescu: stop making special characters yo. it doesn't scale.
asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: they used some telepathic voodoo
decimation: asciilifeform: you know what the 'third' charcter was used for?
mircea_popescu: in point of fact, fucking in 3some with me there IS the only really fun thing
ben_vulpes: tbf i forget the nuances
mircea_popescu: fortunately, i don't scale.
decimation: parsing blocks of data...
decimation: delimiting blocks of data I should say
mircea_popescu: << this website tried to hump my leg.
Duffer1: asciilifeform xenogenesis trilogy?
asciilifeform: Duffer1: aha
ben_vulpes: <undata> dumb; at least they knew to stay away from Django << so much to this
ben_vulpes: <thestringpuller> undata: it's unfortunate python gets a bad wrap though, Djanga seems more stable than say node.js << RECANT
mircea_popescu: djanga lol.
mircea_popescu: like ganja for dyslexics
decimation: I've tried using some of those python 'frameworks'
decimation: ends up in the garbage
decimation: there's something about trying to make one library to rule them all that attracts a certain kind of busybody
asciilifeform: decimation: 3^3 == 27, can now type.
decimation: asciilifeform: you are implying you can encode the entire alphabet evenly
mircea_popescu: <decimation> there's something about trying to make one library to rule them all that attracts a certain kind of busybody << word. this is EXACTLY the dynamic involved.
asciilifeform can't picture 'django' without picturing the tarantino film
mircea_popescu: psychologically immature fucktards trying to protect themselves from their own insecurity with the world at large.
mircea_popescu: BUT at least back when they were making django they weren't making systemd
ben_vulpes: * asciilifeform knows of only one non-retarded object system, CLOS
ben_vulpes: > non retarded object system
ben_vulpes: > common lisp
asciilifeform invites anyone, anywhere, to make this statement false
ben_vulpes: > not sure if trolled
asciilifeform: entirely serious.
ben_vulpes: there's a non retarded object system?
asciilifeform: if i can't meta-object, it's retarded
asciilifeform: and, so far, there's precisely one - where can.
ben_vulpes: meta object?
ben_vulpes: lol 2 lines down
decimation: asciilifeform: on a teletype it's easy to send ternary, just add another symbol
asciilifeform: !s kiczales
decimation: traditionally they were 2-tone fsk, add another tone
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes see, parsing is not as good as compiling.
asciilifeform: !s metaobject
mircea_popescu: come back tomorrow ?
ben_vulpes: search is a day slow
ben_vulpes: interpreting beats compiling again
asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: interpreting << my cl system has no interpreter at all.
mircea_popescu: nubsy quits too much. why are canadians such quitters ?
ben_vulpes: i kid, i kid.
ben_vulpes: <mircea_popescu> major bender or something. << unlike our regular minor benders
mircea_popescu: decimation: why would anyone think it would be a good idea to escape chars below 7 bits? << gpg escapes the dash because it uses a dash-cvomposite as a special char.
decimation: yeah, I see the bind they were in
ben_vulpes: cvomposite - is that a cvasi composite?!
decimation: need to send 7-bit ascii to denote limit
mircea_popescu: cvoopositor.
ben_vulpes: CvLOS
decimation: still, there are plenty of control characters they could have used
decimation: like 0x02
asciilifeform: decimation: nope.
decimation: why not?
asciilifeform: decimation: try it on your terminal / cut&paste system / www turdamatic
ben_vulpes: <Adlai> the GIL is good << aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah
asciilifeform: ... email gizmo, bidet.
mircea_popescu: nah, they get wiped everywhere
decimation: yeah that's enraging
mircea_popescu: you can't even rely on /n staying put
mircea_popescu: constantly s/\r// etc
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: recall rng model 1 test ?
mircea_popescu: yeah lol. it even got us.
decimation: here's 32 control characters that you can't use.
asciilifeform digs for link
asciilifeform: fscking retardatrons drop chars silently
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform what'd you have them do, replace it with Q ?
ben_vulpes: <asciilifeform> yes, still for sale << fucking rob him already
ben_vulpes: if its so damn valuable
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform it occurs to me... since it can only be picked up in person, you should trade it for sex.
decimation: so I guess the alternative is to base64 encode the patches?
ben_vulpes: <mircea_popescu> recoleta* << and where for the fleeing usian pauper?
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes chacarrita ?
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform better idea : base-x encode, x = version number.
ben_vulpes: i liked belgrano, seemed modest.
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes about the same place.
decimation: why not use ITA2
decimation: if we want to be backwards compatible, might as well go back to 1920's era teletype machines
ben_vulpes: anyways
ben_vulpes: did anyone get in touch with bluematt?
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes who'd go over you to do it ? an' why ?
ben_vulpes: well put that way
ben_vulpes: ;;gpginfo bluematt
gribble: Error: "gpginfo" is not a valid command.
ben_vulpes: ;;seen bluematt
gribble: I have not seen bluematt.
decimation: ben_vulpes: is the latest patch still yours? I haven't seen mention of others
ben_vulpes: decimation: calling that a patch is charitable - more an excision
ben_vulpes: and i've no idea if it's the most recent - there's no patch tracking tooling in place
decimation: no worries. I find the stripped-down distribution much easier to study
ben_vulpes: i'm studying the regtest phenomena of 0.8.whatever
ben_vulpes: it's glued in with the glass of the chainparams class
ben_vulpes: my rage is indescribeable
ben_vulpes: now not only must i study testnet but also this regtest thing
ben_vulpes: and, by proxy, chainparams.
ben_vulpes: it's not *so* bad, clearly.
ben_vulpes: mircea_popescu would have that by the act of complaining i bring down more cpp upon my own back
decimation: what's regtest do?
ben_vulpes: chain generation off network.
ben_vulpes: "regression testing"
ben_vulpes: if you dig into chainparams and main.cpp (iirc) you'll find such joys as the "stop generating a chain after 1 block is found so that...reasons"
ben_vulpes: the thing isn't actually all that impossible to reason about
decimation: so is 0.5.3 incompatible with the existing testnet?
ben_vulpes: just - find all the places in which there's a testnet mention and try to figure out how to implement an off-network chain
ben_vulpes: obviously the answer is a class with state safely segregated within it
ben_vulpes: decimation: have not yet tested, do not think that is the case.
ben_vulpes: well, logged up
ben_vulpes: i'll mail matt tomorrow
ben_vulpes: AT ALL OF HIS EMAILS
mircea_popescu: <ben_vulpes> my rage is indescribeable <<< i have an intuition.
mircea_popescu: speaking of which, is charter signed and deed'd yet ?
hanbot: so here's a game for y'all:
mircea_popescu: ahaha these are great!
hanbot: :D
mircea_popescu: bwahhah oh that pot. win.
mircea_popescu: "Feces are almost entirely deceased gut bacteria and water. I massacred my gut bacteria the day before by consuming a DIY Soylent version with no fiber and taking 500mg of Rifaximin, an antibiotic with poor bioavailability, meaning it stays in your gut and kills bacteria. Soylent’s microbiome consultant advised that this is a terrible idea so I do not recommend it. However, it worked. Throughout the challenge I did n
mircea_popescu: ot defecate."
mircea_popescu: im not entirely sure why this sort of idiot is being maintained on artificial life support.
mircea_popescu: usg, you whore of bezzleatron, you got some 'splainin to do.
mircea_popescu: "In lieu of showering I sprayed myself with AOBiome’s custom skin bacteria blend. Body odor is caused by the emissions of proliferating skin bacteria, as unique as a fingerprint. The Nitrosomonas eutropha taking over my skin now metabolizes ammonia into odorless nitrite and nitric oxide. Success!"
asciilifeform channels BingoBoingo to suggest humane ballistic pill for sufferer described above
thestringpuller: Who the fuck eats Soylent with no fiber in it?
mircea_popescu: this idiot.
thestringpuller: Jesus these idiots who don't know how to feed themselves are starting to just baffle me.
hanbot: i don't mind idiots experimenting on themselves, but the access to podium has gotta go.
asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: if bluematt (who was he?) doesn't appear - one of us must do the deed ?
mircea_popescu: !up petahash
asciilifeform: idiots experimenting on themselves << we all experiment on selves.
asciilifeform: writing about it - another matter
assbot: Logged on 10-09-2014 00:36:11; asciilifeform: kakobrekla: used own replica of old soviet mask, anode on eyelids, cathode on occiput
mircea_popescu: this is not experimenting.
mircea_popescu: experimenting is still a term of art.
undata: mircea_popescu: germs are dirty; obviously he's as clean as possible
thestringpuller: asciilifeform: writing about it - another matter << reminds of the people who take lots of psychedelic drugs and put the doses, timeline, and effects in a journal.
mircea_popescu: as stupid as possible, granted. once that is granted, nothing else can further be achieved. he can't be anything "as much as possible" hence.
asciilifeform: thestringpuller: alex shulgin ?
undata is waiting for the inevitable early deaths of the soylent believers
mircea_popescu: eh, the curse of technology. nobody fucking dies for being stupid anymore.
asciilifeform: nope, the death is on instalment plan.
BingoBoingo: Dude's colon is going to have more yeast than a brewery
undata: vice looked into their "factory" and found rats and mold
asciilifeform recalls reading of 'internal brewery' disease that leaves sufferer permanently pickled
mircea_popescu: waitwut ?!
undata: asciilifeform: yeah, causes you to be drunk, right?
asciilifeform: there's a non-zero natural output of EtOH
asciilifeform: there we go.
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: Every now and then someone's digestive system has alcohol producing yeast become the dominant microflora
asciilifeform: year after year, i wait for a report of someone bottling this beer.
mircea_popescu: sounds kinda unhealthy
asciilifeform: it is inevitable.
BingoBoingo: Incredibly unhealthy
mircea_popescu comes from cattle country, is proud carrier of long-selected lactoguys
undata: asciilifeform: ha, the gut beer? *shudder*
undata: but if people will drink this...
asciilifeform: aha 'monkey coffee'
asciilifeform: well-known.
asciilifeform: does pediwikia have 'list of foods which are literally shit' ?
undata: I question anyone without an aversion to shit
undata: asciilifeform: almost certainly
mircea_popescu: undata women develop tolerance, you know.
undata: seems necessary
undata: I still question them
undata: reminds me of my twin sisters in diapers, cribs opposite each other in their room
undata: I come home from school and they've had a shit war, hurled it at each other
BingoBoingo: rifampicin seems like an exceedingly poor choice for a colonocaust
undata: I learned something about life that day.
BingoBoingo: Traditional used against C.Diff is normally Vancomycin
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo i don't suspect the guy actually acts rationally.
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: That was given when he decided to sacrifice taking healthy shits for "water" conservation.
asciilifeform read that piece, assumed this stunt was 'on a bet' or the like
asciilifeform: if anyone has similar bet in the future,
assbot: Logged on 18-06-2014 00:35:11; Mats_cd03: after 1 no pill a day for 4 days during a field exercise, i was literally full of shit
asciilifeform: ^ cheaper method.
BingoBoingo: The classes of bacteria intrisically unaffected by rifampicin includes many unpleasant members. It seems the biggest class though is enterobacteria... so named because they are often normal intestinal flora...
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: 'ilsa the she-wolf' ?
mircea_popescu: adam robertson shot. no idea who the chick is
undata: weird nostrils
pete_dushenski: "Arthur Levitt, the longest-serving chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission, is joining the advisory boards of two bitcoin-focused companies. As an adviser to Atlanta-based BitPay, a bitcoin payment processor, and Vaurum, a Palo Alto-based bitcoin exchange for institutional investors..."
asciilifeform: incidentally, is there any alternate hypothesis re: bitpay that does not involve it being a btc intake valve for usg's 'waterfall' dumpatron?
BingoBoingo: ;;later tell hanbot I submitted an answer to your comment que
gribble: The operation succeeded.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform they didn't start as one. but anyway, either their cash runs out in a few months or it does not.
mircea_popescu: if it does not, the explanation available is exactly one.
mircea_popescu: not like atlanta is crawling with rich, entrepreneurial-minded folks or anything.
mircea_popescu: Actually, what you really need is a platform that’s a community of communities. Ideally with cleverly designed software that can handle each community’s individual epistemology (something like Moldbug’s idea of ‘factional reputation’
mircea_popescu: dude seriously ? "moldbug's idea of the wot" ?
mircea_popescu: i think the one thing i can stand least about usians is not directly their ignorance, but their bald faced, undisturbedly firm conviction that being a clueless git is a-okay.
mircea_popescu: "what do you mean the world didn't start a day before i was born ?!?!!?!?!?!"
BingoBoingo: sha256 of my guess on which trilema url hanbot wrote about 86e9f3b06d8abfde4f1323725907a4c9ccb6017d7ec35250f63ba735b6edbd08
BingoBoingo: md4 for people with things to do, 1ca610d4844aed110d163cdc14b987fc
mircea_popescu: 86e9f3b06d8abfde4f1323725907a4c9ccb6017d7ec35250f63ba735b6edbd08
mircea_popescu: yup, same guess.
punkman: if anyone feels like sweeping some deedbot tests
mircea_popescu: punkman see your pms, apparently ppl can't go from deeds to privkey ?
punkman: lies
punkman: bundle: BXZKQx2iLYyRpUCmdWCqJBvgUdvqWH4EE8TV1ns3pxLZ
punkman: sha256 of bundle: 07014e56d4c34fb7962db64e2cdf5ebcd3f8eca891a0ea697cc5f46f55d1da9d
punkman: brainwallet from exponent
punkman: 149LB8VYaT1BdMLyQUL92Kj6KrJfNwcp64
mircea_popescu: punkman incidentally, why is "brainwallet" shoehorned in there ?
punkman: I dont use brainwallet, just trying to generate with diff tools
mircea_popescu: how did you get 07014e56d4c34fb7962db64e2cdf5ebcd3f8eca891a0ea697cc5f46f55d1da9d ? sha of the raw deed + a comma ?

undata: hm, dumb
undata goes to bed
RagnarDanneskjol: the rf receiver noise gen is kinda cool/weird
adlai: "dumb"? doesn't this just mean you can treat it as providing less entropy than the number of bits it spits out?
RagnarDanneskjol: yes, if i understand the question
CheckDavid: Thanks thestringpuller
CheckDavid: What about throwing dice? Lol
CheckDavid: Or coin flipping?
Naphex: CheckDavid: get a server to do that soon?
CheckDavid: Naphex: ah I see. Must be automated right?
Naphex: yes
CheckDavid: There's not enough entropy in the regular sensors of a computer?
Naphex: CheckDavid: depends on how much you use
Naphex: for any decent cryptography work you'd need more then 200bytes available at any time
CheckDavid: 200 bytes of entropy?
CheckDavid: Is it hard to generate ?
Naphex: so if you're running openssl it shouldn't go down below 200 bytes of available entropy
CheckDavid: I'm not sure how that entropy is cached or generated.
Naphex: on linux kernels you have the value exported through procfs /proc/sys/kernel/random/entropy_avail
Naphex: which gives you the amount of available entropy bytes
Naphex: revo ~ # cat /proc/sys/kernel/random/entropy_avail
Naphex: 2023
Naphex: if you're doing cryptography work (ssl, keys using randoms) and this value is below 200. you have a problem to fix, fast.
Naphex: this is how entropy use from /dev/random looks like on a SSL gateway (reasonable amount of connections/handshakes)
CheckDavid: How is the problem fixed naphex?
Naphex: !up CheckDavid
Naphex: CheckDavid: you get more entropy from a generator
CheckDavid: I see. All I know is I use is.random to generate my random stuffs
CheckDavid: *is.random()
CheckDavid: *os.random()
CheckDavid: Damn auto correct
Naphex: CheckDavid: well good luck with that :)
Naphex: hopefully your os.random is secure :))
CheckDavid: I don't work in security so :)
Naphex: well what does your os.random() return?:P
Naphex: is that python os.random?:)
Naphex: if it is you should read the docs :)
Naphex: Almost all module functions depend on the basic function random(), which generates a random float uniformly in the semi-open range [0.0, 1.0). Python uses the Mersenne Twister as the core generator. It produces 53-bit precision floats and has a period of 2**19937-1. The underlying implementation in C is both fast and threadsafe. The Mersenne Twister is one of the most extensively tested random number generators in existence. However, being comple
Naphex: deterministic, it is not suitable for all purposes, and _and is completely unsuitable for cryptographic purposes._
Naphex: the last one beeing the doozy. "and is completely unsuitable for cryptographic purposes."
Naphex: so thats that, no need to be in security :)

bounce: that thing is usb, meaning it gets fed 5V. what then with the boosting from 3V?
kakobrekla: dont blame the arduino :)
asciilifeform: bounce: he boosts the 3v from the regulator. but doesn't matter.
asciilifeform: bounce: if you have booster, you have its switching oscillator and its harmonics...
bounce: sure. but the question remains, why have a booster at all? can't you run the thing off 5V directly?
asciilifeform: bounce: nope.
bounce: so you're stuck with a booster no matter what then.
asciilifeform: bounce: no booster in mine.
asciilifeform: bounce: this is the exact reason i went with johnson noise rather than avalanche.

jurov: but add aspace to clearsigned cmd, and it goes
jurov: no need to clearsign again
punkman: does that also work with GPG comments?

punkman: so you can replay signed commands?
jurov: yes
punkman: well that's nice
jurov: --not-dash-escaped helps with the spaces

asciilifeform for some reason thought there were serial numbers in mpex commands

mircea_popescu: TomServo you ever encountered that situation where you had a smaller island, but pushed tech, surrounded yourself with fortified mech infantry and railroaded all the firlds back when the idiots around still klonked each other with knights
mircea_popescu: but then 1000 years later they got their own armors and well... game over ?
mircea_popescu: the us is going against a twin bottleneck, both social and technological. the us born boys of today are weak, the us tech of today is dull, no more edge. like that, it can only be a brothel.
mircea_popescu: jurov you know, photos can be half the fun.
mircea_popescu: and speaking of half the fun : was at japanese restaurant yest, discovered that the eating sticks, if unbroken, make the best nipple clamps ever. chicks love them, not strong enough to hurt, strong enough to majorly enhance sensitivity.
bounce: hookers and blow, what more do you need?
TomServo: mircea_popescu: can't say I recall that exact scenario - but I see your point. Better not be another 950 years of this BS though!
undata: ha, love the social commentary sprinkled with courteous bdsm tips
asciilifeform: ^ mega-lulz!
mircea_popescu: i wonder if this one was ever exploited.
mircea_popescu: what was that even ?
mircea_popescu: assbot: "we show that if an adversary is able to review this cryptosystem, a simulator can be constructed which solves the halting problem"-ethereum << that made precisely no sense. wut ?!
rithm: justcoin failed to read the specs on ripple
punkman: question is can I redirect random HTTP url to ftp:// when I detect wget
asciilifeform: 'If Chewbacca lives on Endor, you must acquit!'
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform: 1) what kind of dope must one smoke to put a micro under the tin can with the analogue amp ? <<< ahahah wut.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: look at it. there it is.
mircea_popescu: and 'AP3105' , kay, amateur hour.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: kitchen toilet.
mircea_popescu: but... "it should be ok for most usecases".
mircea_popescu: which is how you'll get kiled in the marketplace. if the market is 100 units, and 90 units are needed to support a well made unit, and 90 buyers could be satisfied by a shitty unit,
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i posted enough re: rng that any kid could bloody well copy it. but no, must have 'improvements.'
mircea_popescu: if the shitty unit makes it to market first then the well made unit is never happening.
mircea_popescu: so get on with it!
jurov: punkman you can check for user agent, but why?
mircea_popescu: jurov he's trying to put a dent in his hosting bills ?
punkman: jurov, to apply linked exploit
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: against the f-students, we have pills. but it would be hasty to administer the pills as of yet.
mircea_popescu: if i have to pass another xmas w/o roast beast and cardano i'll paint you blue.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: might have to give you one of mine.
asciilifeform: gentlement: patch review pleeze ?
mircea_popescu: just get on with it!11 exlamation points
mircea_popescu: jurov: but add aspace to clearsigned cmd, and it goes << where are you adding the space ?
jurov: in the end of STATJSON
jurov: read the gpg quirks i linked, it's eye opening
mircea_popescu: uh you telling me gpg takes "STATJSON" and "STATJSON " as validly signed by the same signature ?
jurov: lol 11 exlamation points.. yknow, asciilifeform is still gathering blood, sweat, bile, etc. to put into cardano software
asciilifeform: jurov: ichor.
mircea_popescu: jurov yeah, stat/statjson are not protected against replay. this, on the principle that the response being encoded anyway, the attacker needs the key to do anything useful.
asciilifeform: the attacker needs the key to do anything useful << unless i misunderstand, enemy can do blind replay?
mircea_popescu: 14:16:06 mats_cd03: kakobrekla: links on log1.b-a direct to log.b-a, which is down << umm no they don't ?
kakobrekla: links like to whatever people link to.
mircea_popescu: oh, he means inside the lines
kakobrekla: s/like/link
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform yes, and get a blob coded to the owner's key, and now we know someone tried.
asciilifeform: kakobrekla: possibly he meant 'bash' etc.
asciilifeform: kakobrekla: links
kakobrekla: there are log links in bash?
asciilifeform: kakobrekla: bash link in log
jurov: punkman, kakobrekla: how do you get all the public keys from gribble?
jurov: in assbot L1/L2
kakobrekla doesnt.
punkman: I had it download the db backups every 6 hours
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes: some derpy shit i've seen: recursive signing of documents. one party signs doc, another party signs clearsigned doc. <<< used to be how mpex did ipo contracts, but it sucks.
mircea_popescu: now everyone signs a copy.
mircea_popescu: apparently websites can be useful even without web2.0 rounded corners javascript "design" bs.
mircea_popescu: actually, one should sometime do a count.
Naphex: so wait
Naphex: if justcoin is going down
Naphex: why is it still trading?
mircea_popescu: wow log finished. feels so good...
mircea_popescu: Naphex doesn't make any sense does it.
BingoBoingo: Naphex: Insufficient thought disorder? Maybe they hope late panic trades might be favorable to their own orders?
Naphex: why would anyone give a shit to trade on a burning down closing exchange
Naphex: just get your funds out and move out
mircea_popescu: maybe you've not met the bitcoin crowd yet ?
Naphex: some fruad suspected
Naphex: related to some altcoin ripple run shit on your server hack
asciilifeform: no more turdmeister broadcast receiver!
Naphex: turdmeister broadcast receiver?
asciilifeform: !s nixing alert
Naphex: asciilifeform: so that's what alert disabled?
asciilifeform: no reason at all why a true bitcoind ought to take direct orders from the turdation...
mircea_popescu: re the "how to start your own country" thing, the opening model is so fucking braindamaged it curls my hairs.
mircea_popescu: is there anything actually intelligent in here or am i throwing it away ?
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: strauss is a (now very old) man who was involved with some of the '70s derpistans (actual attempts at island 'nations' by american jokers). worth reading if only for zoological purposes.
mircea_popescu: no but seriously, groups split off at that point when carrying the food (where ? they were fucking nomadic anyway) cost as much energy as the food provided ?
mircea_popescu: the sexual castration of us puritans is making them stupid i swear.
mircea_popescu: individuation is a sexual, not an economical phenomenon.
mircea_popescu: xiando hey, help me out here, what's that ancient chinese tale of the young man who found a young woman, and they fell in love, and they wished to be alone in the world ? so they suddenly were! and then wished for a cook, and suddely a cook appeared, and then kept wishing and soon enough were back at home ?
asciilifeform: strauss has 'zoological' data not available elsewhere, afaik.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform yeah, but my fear is, how much can be trusted in the "data" of someone so fundamentally confused. can one who can't count keep a useful count of anything ?
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: next you'll be asking about herodotus
Naphex: asciilifeform: so did you remove the fork alerts as well or just the alert-keying system?
mircea_popescu: i guess since im reading this under protest im gonna adnotate it.
asciilifeform: Naphex: keyed. -- and, you know, you can read the fscking code.
asciilifeform: not rocket surgery!
Naphex: asciilifeform: didn't quite pick up that turdmeister alert snip was a bitcoin patch to check it:)
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform he has a point tho. what happens if there's a fork ?
asciilifeform: dear glubb, read it
Naphex: i kept the alert system, don't have much problem with it and can easily be disabaled.
Naphex: but thats what i want for my core servers really. don't run walleting software on them
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform to reprhrase. "what should happen, if there's a fork"
Naphex: but i do want them to shut down in many cases and prevent any integrity breaches
Naphex: the chain will still be there
Naphex: for me to restart
mircea_popescu: Naphex the problem with this approach is that well, false security.
Naphex: how is it false security?
Naphex: it's not false security
Naphex: you run the route nodes to sync the data and keep a chain
mircea_popescu: well, not in itself, but if you end up relying on it then yeah
Naphex: you then run secondary nodes with spv to ease that data and make it more usefull
Naphex: if anything corrupts the main chain, the spv will pick it up
mircea_popescu: so if you run all this why'd you want random idiot to turn off your whole infrastructure whenever ?
Naphex: the main chain(fed from the trusted nodes)
Naphex: mircea_popescu: the nodes are all synced, the only thing he turns off is the ability to receive new transactions
Naphex: and thats pretty short, i can recompile it and restart it with alerts disabled in under 10mins
mircea_popescu: nevertheless.
mircea_popescu: we're discussing different things here.
Naphex: so thats not a huge downtime, alerts get notified and keyd so email all the rest
asciilifeform: ability to receive new transactions << and gavin should have the nuclear button for this why?
Naphex: temporary, be right back
mircea_popescu: it's unsanitary. that damned key is probably how he got his asshole extended in the first place.
asciilifeform: unsanitary << exactly. and, thus far, we are - sanitars.
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo ^ qntra ?
BingoBoingo: I'll look at it
asciilifeform: anyone willing to review patches - read, ponder, sign. jurov can dump it all in turdatron later.
asciilifeform: also, am i the only one here with a pair of shears? get snipping.
asciilifeform: plenty of unambiguous garbage left.
assbot: Logged on 28-10-2014 11:41:26; punkman1: ;;later tell nubbins` according to that, and to my system, mp's, etc, it's 1d834ceaf8b81bd9f53dec3f4befd06f65ee422248f2c2edaf55e825bd2228c0 << that's because the CRLF line endings in the raw deed got converted to LF at some point in your process
nubbins`: ^ CRLF line endings o.O
nubbins`: unless we've all suddenly decided to nominate Windows as the OS of choice, \r\n should not be within a thousand feet of this thing :D
punkman: it doesn't discriminate, whatever you feed it
nubbins`: it should replace \r\n with \n
punkman: original genesis deed had LF, dunno when they got in there, probably some text editor
nubbins`: otherwise how the fuck is anyone using anything other than Windows going to be able to verify deeds?
punkman: base64 was there for a reason
punkman: check out the one liner
nubbins`: one liner?
asciilifeform: which one of the chairmen runs winblows? fess up
nubbins`: SPEAK NOW
nubbins`: but srsly, \r\n --> \n going forward
nubbins`: do a regex replace, w/e, don't care
nubbins`: must be done
punkman: not rly
nubbins`: yes rly
nubbins`: it's a line of code
ben_vulpes: asciilifeform: scissors? no. time today? perhaps.
nubbins`: otherwise you're essentially throwing up a huge "FUCK YOU" to all of us not using winblows
asciilifeform: bad enough that satoshi used (or convincingly pretended to use) it. i will not be signing anything of substance authored by a winblows user. cannot presume that he has sole control of his key.
asciilifeform: if any of you think this is unreasonable, please say why.
nubbins`: imagine every time you wanted to verify a deed, having to manually swap \r\n with \n
nubbins`: or having to check both versions because the deed could be using either
nubbins`: nightmare
mod6: windows? not me. i've done all my editing in vim
mod6: i don't own or use a single windows machine, and proud to have not for /years/
nubbins`: mod6 HIGH FIVE
mod6: ^5
chetty: I like the idea you know someone is using a potential bad key because ot that problem
asciilifeform: known users of kitchen toilets.
asciilifeform: quite elementary.
chetty: asciilifeform, not the most elegant way of putting it but you make a point
ben_vulpes: what precisely had \r\n?
ben_vulpes runs macos - admitted turd, but not windows
mike_c: what about /deed/asldkfjalsdkfgj/RAW/ that has raw message.
mike_c: and you can wget and not worry about line endings
asciilifeform: this thead is about things that must not be born, regardless of how easily killed.
asciilifeform: problems of provenance.
asciilifeform: !s monolith
mike_c: whether or not you trust something signed by a windows user has little to do with deedbot.
jurov: ben_vulpes: wanna keys from the bucket? to publish the charter and provisional list of patches
mike_c: having deedbot muck up the message it is given seems retarded.
asciilifeform: or, more pertinently, it does not matter that a cockroach is easy to crush. you don't want ten, nine, or one - in kitchen
jurov: unless you unanimously decided it will go elsewhere
ben_vulpes: jurov: sorry, don't understand the question
punkman: any interest in bot that announces key expiries and revocations in channel?
mike_c: yeah, ok, so we won't run deedbot on windows. what does this have to do with it mucking up messages it is given?
nubbins`: ben_vulpes genesis deed has \r\n
ben_vulpes: ho ho ho
ben_vulpes: not a chair problem tho
asciilifeform: eh i might have stepped in wrong thread. but even so, where does cr-lf come from if no winblows in the loop?
nubbins`: ben_vulpes someone's chair ;)
mike_c: from the person submitting the deed is my understanding.
nubbins`: asciilifeform ask punkman i guess
nubbins`: i assumed he was using windows
punkman: genesis deed not signed on windows
jurov: ben_vulpes: to upload files and publish then to web
punkman: the house does have some windows though
nubbins`: however it happened, there's \r\n
nubbins`: and it would be extremely important to convert all \r\n to \n when publishing deeds.
ben_vulpes: yes sure that would be useful indeed.
mike_c: no, it wouldn't..
nubbins`: it would be extremely convenient for non-windows users
nubbins`: same thing, n'est pas? ;D
mike_c: to have a list of ways the deed that deedbot is given is modified before publishing?
mike_c: this is silly.
mike_c: it shouldn't fuck with the message at all.
nubbins`: silly is not being able to verify deeds because they use retarded EOL
punkman: it just pushes bytes around indeed
mike_c: so don't copy/paste.
nubbins`: how the fuck else am i gonna verify, transcribe by hand?
mike_c: i just said. have /deed/adsfas/RAW/
ben_vulpes: just reject crlf
mike_c: surely you have wget on ur l33t box.
punkman: curl -s | grep -oP "(?<=>).+(?=</text)" | base64 -d | sha256sum
punkman: but yes some raw url will be added
xanthyos: if i donate to startcoin i can get a free sterlingcoin cryptocurrency card!
xanthyos: Sterlingcoin is The Cryptocurrency of the UK & British Isles. << didn't realize btc was geographically limited
mircea_popescu: <nubbins`> ^ CRLF line endings o.O <<<
mircea_popescu: <nubbins`> it should replace \r\n with \n << it's cant, gpg sig'd
punkman: actually gpg doesn't care
mircea_popescu: o yes it does.
punkman: no genesis deed was LF, but deedbot got CRLF version and it passed
mircea_popescu: try feeding a \r\n blob to a linux version
punkman: it's in the manual, pretty sure
mircea_popescu: <asciilifeform> if any of you think this is unreasonable, please say why. << it's a wot thing. does not matter one rat's ass what anyone thinks of it as long as you got a policy you thought out and are sticking to.
mircea_popescu: <mike_c> and you can wget and not worry about line endings << somebody's not read the log :D
asciilifeform: sticking to it << i will. but curious whether it makes sense to the rest of you.
mircea_popescu: i can see it.
jurov: <mircea_popescu> o yes it does.<< same thing as spaces in the end of lines, you did not get it
jurov: line endings do not go into sig
jurov: unless –not-dash-escaped option
asciilifeform: option << which b0rks other things
mircea_popescu: jurov what i meant on this instance was that pasting dos text in linux gpg results in double line breaks and an unprocessable inpuit.
punkman: openpgp spec says normalize to CRLF I think
mircea_popescu: generally tho, the concept of "line" should not exist for gpg.
asciilifeform: we're paying and paying for the glass tty era, yes.
punkman: "The signature is calculated over the text data with its line endings converted to <CR><LF>."
nubbins`: gross
mircea_popescu: more reasons to reimplement pgp
asciilifeform: as if we ever were short on reasons!
hanbot: BingoBoingo wd, answered
nubbins`: "standard CRLF line endings"
nubbins`: who the fuck wrote this
punkman: "Also, any trailing whitespace -- spaces (0x20) and tabs (0x09) -- at the end of any line is removed when the cleartext signature is generated."
punkman: so there's a lot of ways to make dupe deeds
asciilifeform: who the fuck wrote this << lost souls
mircea_popescu: nubbins` it's the "standard" tho.
mircea_popescu: it stays with gpg in about the same reason bitcoin stands with the derpitude coming out of the scamdation.
punkman: " As with binary signatures on text documents, a cleartext signature is calculated on the text using canonical <CR><LF> line endings." << wtf does this mean
asciilifeform: this is the kind of thing that will die because it must, and because we have blasters.
mircea_popescu: nothing.

Pierre_Rochard: mircea_popescu: huh, I didn’t know that, interesting
mircea_popescu: seems a bizarre approach anyway, join wot, start negrating people. how far is that gonna go lol,
asciilifeform: works now
mircea_popescu: and for that matter, why would anyone imagine negratings from nobody do anything
xiando: I am just guessing here, but if I rate mircea_popescu 10 bought what SEC doesn't like from him ten times and SEC sends out nastly letters like they did the last few days
xiando: then I could negrate mircea_popescu and hope he gets upset and negrates me?

bounce: what are you on about?
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform anyway, best i can discern some major routing thing blew at some point somewhere, lost some traffic.
asciilifeform: guessed as much

mircea_popescu: mime is such gunk
jurov: it did not support mime before at all
asciilifeform: this is reason #.... why it all needs to burn
bounce: that it is. but moreover email isn't bitwise consistent, which any cryptographic hash function requires
mircea_popescu: and all this bulcrap so some idiot somewhere can send... what was it even ? html emails ?

mircea_popescu: <BingoBoingo> Gawker toxic to advertizers: << this is quite true, and not just of them.
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: I'm just amazed that in the battle ov Redditors vs. Shitty Journos, both sides are losing so profoundly
nara_narayana: it's rhetoric is degrading quickly on both sides
nara_narayana: one can only laugh
BingoBoingo: I mean Gawker particularly calls people out on harassment yet they wrote:
assbot: Peter Thiel is totally gay, people
nara_narayana: what are you, homophobic?
BingoBoingo: Just Amazing to see cast iron implements call each other out on their composition
thestringpuller: amazing like south park
jurov: not composition, color
sxejno: so did you figure out my languages, mircea?
nara_narayana: should have put a /s
BingoBoingo: jurov: Well, sure
jurov: "you pot iron!" "you zamak!"
assbot: Last 5 lines bashed and pending review. ( )
BingoBoingo: Is black zamak a thing yet?
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo no, it's how it works.

mircea_popescu: that means arab. it's how you say "slave" in romanian, incidentally.

undata: "Like the immigrant Jews who created Hollywood a century ago, a gay investor has no way to fit into the old establishment." << pffffffff
nara_narayana: he is reading a script
undata: shit, I was scrolled up. That was from the Thiel article
undata: ah, not as scrolled as I thought.
undata: on a restaurant nearby someone spraypainted "gay is race"
mircea_popescu: undata wait, you disagree from experience about the gay fitting, or you're shocked and surprised that thiel may actually take your peculiar payment ?
undata: apparently trying to make the same idiotic point
undata: mircea_popescu: I disgree that it's worth mentioning
mircea_popescu: what else isn't worth mentioning ?
nara_narayana: sexual orientation, i would say
mircea_popescu: i mention it all the time!
mircea_popescu: or is it only for fags ?
undata: mircea_popescu: the writer is trying to cast himself as part of some team which Thiel brings some kind of social progress honor to
undata: the two people have nothing of note in common
mircea_popescu: ah that. well certainly.
nara_narayana: in matters such as this, i couldn't care less where you stick your penis
mircea_popescu: kinda the job of internet nobodies, innit ? "i saw x thing on google trends now i'm going to write about it in a vain but strongly held hope that mayhap the association may benefit me"
mircea_popescu: decentralized commercial copywriting,

mircea_popescu: i have nfi how anyone even uses any of the sites in the gawker empire of crap. and incidentally tech crunch or mashable are exacly the same shit : exactly 0 comments, no content, just a bunch of pointless, flashy page elements.

mircea_popescu: decimation what constant set of assumption do we have in common ?
thestringpuller: if there were text book example for "The Case of Too Much Money" this would be in that chapter.
mircea_popescu: or for that matter, what constant set of assumptions do physicists have in common ? if discussion relied on constant assumptions, science'd be in principle impossible.
decimation: empricism
mircea_popescu: how is that constant ?
mircea_popescu: empiricism is about as constant as beauty.
decimation: no, I mean empricism is in principle impossible, not science
mircea_popescu: how do you distinguish ?

ben_vulpes: mircea_popescu: i'm more inclined to hack the checkpoints out.
ben_vulpes: but this could be retarded - i don't actually know.
mircea_popescu: i don't see a problem with their going away.
ben_vulpes suspects checkpoints are the dumb thing here
mircea_popescu: and yes, they will mine, on their own chain, obviously.
ben_vulpes: that's what i suspected.
