mircea_popescu: They tell it all: how I am wiping a nation of friendless creatures out of existence by every form of murder, for my private pocket's sake. But they never say, although they know it, that I have labored in the cause of religion at the same time and all the time, and have sent missionaries there (of a "convenient stripe," as they phrase it), to teach them the error of their ways and bring them to Him who is all mercy and
mircea_popescu: love, and who is the sleepless guardian and friend of all who suffer. They tell only what is against me, they will not tell what is in my favor.
mircea_popescu: They tell how England required of me a Commission of Inquiry into Congo atrocities, and how, to quiet that meddling country, with its disagreeable Congo Reform Association, made up of earls and bishops and John Morleys and university grandees and other dudes, more interested in other people's business than their own, I appointed it. Did it stop their mouths? No, they merely pointed out that it was a commission composed
mircea_popescu: wholly of my "Congo butchers," "the very men whose acts were to be inquired into."
mircea_popescu: turns out the first gaddafi was actually the king of belgium
mircea_popescu: and it further turns out that the method has been in use for well over 150 years.
asciilifeform: invented by u.s. abolitionists, afaik.
mircea_popescu: i guess that's where it traces properly huh.
mircea_popescu: of course, before they sunk the south, they sunk the so called "tavern lobby"
asciilifeform: mr mold actually did some passable work on the subject. he ended by zipping the stratagem into a single sentence, 'kick the beast till it bites, then shoot it'
mircea_popescu: the prohibition was not merely idiocy. it was a particular sort of vindictive idiocy, where the pencildicks got upset that politics was set by men, around beer
mircea_popescu: and so kept telling the women about how politics should "properly" be set by old men around pulpits.
asciilifeform: this, afaik, is immensely well documented.
mircea_popescu: in a singular fit of stupidity, women went for it.
mircea_popescu: perhaps aided by the very homosexual attitudes of teh men at the time.
mircea_popescu: anyway, the 'kick the beast till it bites, then shoot it' observation is valid. i propose the solution is for the beast to threaten indefinitely.
asciilifeform: works, sorta, for north kr.
asciilifeform: for now.
mircea_popescu: extract compensation under threat, make sure compensation > kicking. let the cycle wear itself out.
mircea_popescu: it's actually how bismarck beat england into a pulp, and created the first germany.
mircea_popescu: just requires a lot of patience.

They prefer to work up what they call "ghastly statistics" into offensive kindergarten object lesson
mircea_popescu: s, whose purpose is to make sentimental people shudder, and prejudice them against me. They remark that "if the innocent blood shed in the Congo State by King Leopold were put in buckets and the buckets placed side by side, the line would stretch 2,000 miles; if the skeletons of his ten millions of starved and butchered dead could rise up and march in single file, it would take them seven months and four days to pass a

mircea_popescu: "Before all of this mess we were already financially struggling. To say that we were living paycheck-to-paycheck is an understatment. My boyfriend is currently underemployed and in school. I gave up 90% of the hours at my job in order to take this fake nanny job.

mircea_popescu: just... coffee is this triviality, of no financial consequence. however, inviting oine for coffee is either sexual or whatever.
rithm: so much facepalm
mircea_popescu: so giving someone a coffee gift card is like... "go fuck yourself" ? ie, let's have a cup of coffee but without me there ?
rithm: coffe to me is trivial
rithm: coffee to others is some type of retarded status symbol
mircea_popescu: and then you paid for that ?!?!?!
mircea_popescu: but obv none of this has much if at all to do with you or teh starbux

mircea_popescu: putting out blocks with both versions isn't actually putting out different blocks is it ?

mircea_popescu: i guess this "merge mining' business needs moar looking into.
kakobrekla: bitcoin merged mined with bitcoin is bad idea.
davout: i don't think the way you propose to use merge mining actually works
davout: or i mean, is actually feasible
mircea_popescu: hm. turns out i don't actually understand what merged mining actually is.
mircea_popescu: i had thought different chains had to be forked to mm because of their different origin. but that's not what happens in merged mining at all.
mircea_popescu: what happens is that a hash of a block of the lower chain is inserted in bitcoin blocks, and then the lower chain accepts this as "just as good" proof.
mircea_popescu: better ways to ruin scamcoins than merge-mine them doth not exist huh.
BingoBoingo: Basically Bitch chain depends on the Master chain.

mircea_popescu: check out dooglus (who isn't a gavin-approved economist, in spite of being exactly as certified&educated in the topic as the random idiots a la Oleg Andreev et all) explaining economics :
mircea_popescu: At any given time there is a certain amount of demand for a Bitcoin like currency to make transactions. That need doesn’t increase with more competition. That means that the transactional demand for Bitcoin is really the same as the transactional demand for all substantially similar forms of payment. As more currencies are competing to fill the same demand they actually reduce the demand for the other currencies as t
mircea_popescu: hey become more widely used.
mircea_popescu: This means that ultimately, to the extent that currencies are interchangeable to end users, merged mining does not increase the overall security of the networks. The demand for currencies drives the price (and thus the value of the reward). Increased demand for any given currency results in decreased demand for others, lowering the incentive to mine for the other currencies. The total incentive is a function of total d
mircea_popescu: emand for all Bitcoin like currencies.
mircea_popescu: Except now competing currencies can market themselves as “as secure as Bitcoin but with lower transaction fees.” In other words there is a race to the bottom among competing currencies to offer the lowest transaction fees, because lowering the transaction fee doesn’t hurt the security of the network in comparison to the other merged mining networks. Users, following their own self interest, will adopt the currenc
davout: so, if i understand correctly, the way this thing works is that it attracts moar miners through the bonus mechanism, which in turn contributes to killing-off gavincoin amirite
mircea_popescu: y with the lowest transaction fees as long as it has the same security of the competitors.
mircea_popescu: This will increase the price of the currency with the lowest transaction fee (because demand for the currency is higher), and decrease the price of the currencies with higher transactions fees (because demand for those currencies is dropping as it is being filled by demand for the competing currency). Because the currencies with the higher transaction fees were the ones generating the incentive to mine, overall incenti
mircea_popescu: ve to mine will diminish. As long as a currency’s mining is merged with the freeloading currency, it will be powerless to increase incentives by imposing mandatory transaction fees.
mircea_popescu: The result will be a decrease in mining incentive, a decrease in mining, and ultimately all networks that allow merged mining will become insecure.

davout: if you remove 1. then mining gavincoin blocks can be removed from the rfc as well
mircea_popescu: the principal utility of this thing is to guarantee the general public the ability to split its coins on the two chains
davout: so if i understand correctly, the main characteristic you want for this pool, is that it prioritizes double-spends of already-confirmed gavincoins when picking which txes to put in its blocks
davout: s/gavincoins/gavincoin txes/
mircea_popescu: something like that
mircea_popescu: actually you're right huh, it doesn't need to be trustless and that "send to pool" step is gunk.
mircea_popescu: it *could* just look for dblspent txs that made it on gavinchain and prioritize them
davout: yep
mircea_popescu: course, this is not actually needed either. miners already do that, in that they look for high tx fee txn
mircea_popescu: maybe this entire pool thing actually just needs to be a website to generate raw tx for people to put in bitcoind
mircea_popescu: like a graphics aid.

mircea_popescu: im not happy with waiting the 200 blocks for the scamcoins to mature.
mircea_popescu: that sort of latency means you'll be a late comer to the "sell it into the dirt" party.

davout: well, blockchain is the witness here, or am i missing sthg?
mircea_popescu: yes, you are.
mircea_popescu: if you come hither with a signed statement saying "the coin will fall tails" i won't particularly care
mircea_popescu: because for all i know you signed a "coin will fall heads" statement too and aren't sharing that one.
Apocalyptic: aha, I get it
mircea_popescu: the notary keeps a list of all the items it was sent a certain way.
mircea_popescu: you're free to sign whatever matter a similar way, but it won't be thus notarized. it will just be your own mock-up of the process.
mircea_popescu: which is fine, but as far as i see toothless.
davout: well, in that case it doesn't really make sense to me that the notary doesn't GPG-sign
Apocalyptic: the content has to be made public and witnessed by others at the time it's timestamped
mircea_popescu: it does make sense. because the trust does not derive from a robotic application of a gpg seal.
mircea_popescu: anyway, i got a meeting, we'll have to continue this debte in a few hours.
davout: more from the fact that folks you trust are looking at deeds being timestamped
davout: amirite
davout: also there was another thing regarding deedbot, if all deeds are simply concatenated before being hashed into a bitcoin private key, that means anyone watching the process taking place can deduce the bitcoin private key that's going to be generated, and claim the coins that'll be sent there
ben_vulpes: that's a feature, davout
BingoBoingo: !up Zarathul
davout: ben_vulpes: you might just as well spend that back to deedbot's wallet by broadcasting a second transaction at the same time

mats: hardly a pizza
davout: mats: you need an extra 0
davout: undata: yep, my thought too
davout: but if it's really like 1btc/year worst case you might as well consider it as burned
Apocalyptic: undata, ? the purpose is that everyone can hash the bundle and verify the address indeed matches
undata: Apocalyptic: yeah, that ruins that without later revealing the salt
davout: Apocalyptic: the idea is to reveal the salt, but only after the bitcoin has been claimed back from the bundle-related addy, not keep it secret forever
ben_vulpes: mats: "pizza", "chump change" you pedantic nerd
undata: the two transations thing seems fine
Apocalyptic: davout, claimed back by whom ?
davout: mats: 1000 btc used to also be hardly a pizza
davout: Apocalyptic: by deedbot
undata: davout: you could just wait to upload after the second transaction confirms
Apocalyptic: afaik ben_vulpes is correct, it's a feature that icentivies 3rd parties to verify
Apocalyptic: so you would not want deedbot to take it back

mircea_popescu: <TomServo> Am I crazy for suggesting that assbot be subordinate to gribble until the exchange of ratings is sorted out? << why would it be ?
BingoBoingo: I've just assumed until it sorts out that rating twice is generally the best practice for most ratings
TomServo: mircea_popescu: Things seemed to be getting messy with the drama earlier. Having to rate in two places.
mircea_popescu: well obv that's optional. as the wot decentralizes, one can be part of as many / all of them.
mircea_popescu: that they talk to each other is a convenience, and i guess best practice, but not really a necessity.
mircea_popescu: actually i guess it depends on teh wisdom / celerity of teh admins currently involved if the future will hold it as best practice or just you know, that thing that might have been useful but never took off.
BingoBoingo: Sure. I for example entered the Rozal rating on both WoTs because the information is immidiately useful to both #bitcoin-assets as lulz material and #bitcoin-otc as a leper's bell around the person's neck.
mircea_popescu: makes sense
kakobrekla: basically ba wot is lulz is what you are saying
BingoBoingo: kakobrekla: In this case. DOn't see the dude around here, so I only know him noa for the laffs
danielpbarron: not just lulz, Rozal can still voice himself in here
kakobrekla: correction, useless lulz!
mircea_popescu: kakobrekla ima send you alum cakes!
BingoBoingo: Well, if he does Rozal can try to argue why his slander is good like kakobrekla's slander even though kakobrekla's slander is right and Rozal's slander is lies.

asciilifeform: (state of maryland)
asciilifeform: probably rental.
pete_dushenski: well the story is that he drove one on his first visit to the us
pete_dushenski: fell in love with it
pete_dushenski: and ordered a bullet-proof model, naturally, as soon as he returned to moscow
asciilifeform: iirc that one was auctioned recently ?

pete_dushenski: i don't think i'll eke out 400 km of city driving on a 90l tank
pete_dushenski: probably more like 600-700km on the highway
asciilifeform: good car for fellow who doesn't drive.
mircea_popescu: tank isn't that big if memory serves, more like 52, and fuel economy is not that bad, more like 7ish
mircea_popescu: so you'd do ~500 km on the 50 liters in the tank

asciilifeform: seems like it purports to show that - yes
asciilifeform has not checked the proof, just saw this turd
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform what he does is, "here's a turing machine, and here's how im painting my game on it. "
mircea_popescu: pete_dushenski i was thinking of teh diesel.
mircea_popescu: this is gas ?!
pete_dushenski: you thought it was a 5.6l diesel?
pete_dushenski: it's not a 3/4 ton pickup
pete_dushenski: lol ya it's gas
mircea_popescu: yeah those had shitty fuel economy.
mircea_popescu: back in the 90s the diesels were pretty economical cause diesel was 30% off
pete_dushenski: now diesel is all over the place
pete_dushenski: often 30% more
pete_dushenski: plus, quite underpowered and they never heat up in the winter
pete_dushenski: not enough waste heat
pete_dushenski: though the diesels are known to last 1,000,000 miles
mircea_popescu: hm, nah, it'll heat alright
pete_dushenski: at -30C it'll take a while
pete_dushenski: by which time you're probably already at your destination
pete_dushenski: could take 30 min

pete_dushenski: and dink life
ben_vulpes: dink < meh
ben_vulpes: perhaps you missed the part of the log where i disclosed that lady v is on my personal payroll
pete_dushenski: i guess it depends whether your personal payroll includes personal cheques or just payments in kind ;)
ben_vulpes: personal cheques would defeat the purpose; then i'd have to pay taxes on money i'd already have paid taxes on.
asciilifeform: what's it mean to have a pet on payroll even.
pete_dushenski: employee
pete_dushenski: professional services rendered

asciilifeform: spambags ?
kakobrekla: to bring in food. at least in my case.
asciilifeform almost failed to read 'handbags' because it lodged in his skullcase's spam filter
kakobrekla hates going to the store.
asciilifeform would have pet fetch food but it would require teaching pet to drive and issuing a vehicle
ben_vulpes: yeah well there you go
ben_vulpes: mine has her own
ben_vulpes: and does the cooking too
asciilifeform: cooking - yes
ben_vulpes: easily delegable all sorts of household tasks
ben_vulpes: girl basically runs the household
ben_vulpes: no reason to not provide adequate expense accounts to ensure everything gets done
ben_vulpes: wait - skullcase?
kakobrekla: here you dont need a car to go to the store.
asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: srsly, how often does one see word 'handbag' outside of spam.
kakobrekla: actually it would take longer with the car than by foot.
asciilifeform: kakobrekla: the only thing one can reliably get to where i live, without a motor, is 'convenience stores' which largely sell recycled food

mike_c: you trust assbot, the bot doesn't yet trust you
felipelalli: mike_c: ah! Ok.
felipelalli: mike_c: I want to do an overview of the Bitcoin image in Brazil. I want to show how almost everybody here thinks it is a scam. But for this I use a professional statistical research that costs a fortune.
felipelalli: *I want to use
felipelalli: I want to hire a statistical company to make a distributed properly research.
kakobrekla: i agree, its a scam.
kakobrekla: no stat tools needed.
mike_c: not even a good scam. price goes down all the time.
kakobrekla: i dont think it ever went up
felipelalli: are you kidding, right? :)
mike_c: so, if you want to do this research but have not yet, what is the article going to say?
felipelalli: I want to write one, just like a dream. Not sure if I will accomplish.
kakobrekla: well get to work, dreams wont dream themselfs!
mike_c: ah. well, hit the streets, get 50 random brazilians to answer a survey. the results of that might be worth an article.
mike_c: heh, 50 brazilian. that's a lot.
kakobrekla: there arent that many?
felipelalli: no, I had worked in a statistical company, if you say to them that you made that, they gonna kill you! :)
felipelalli: the number doesn't matter, but the distribution.
mike_c: well, it's just a survey. confidence interval is +- 2 brazilian

mats: a what? >30 s'all you need
felipelalli: no. If I go to slams it will be one result, if I go to downtown, another totally different.
mike_c: 30 brazilian?
kakobrekla: i think he is saying 1 brazilian is enough
kakobrekla: and extrapolate
mats: you're not gonna let that go huh mike_c
mike_c: oh god.. the accent in my head is killing me. hilarious

kakobrekla: felipelalli come up with a draft and show it to qntra people is your best bet
felipelalli: kakobrekla: thank you! I'll try it.
mats: kakobrekla being surprisingly nice and helpful
kakobrekla: go fuck yourself
mats: :(
felipelalli: but maybe you are right, spend money on it can be waste of money. maybe a simple survey can give me the results I need.
kakobrekla: aww cmon mats a little joke.
mats: im sensitive
kakobrekla: then i wont hug you
mats: felipelalli: def a waste. what's software gonna do that you can't replicate by hand?
mike_c: i'll give mats a brazilian hugs
felipelalli: waste of money if I hire that company.
mats: not to say there wouldn't be a valid use case. just, what's the point?
felipelalli: I have to go, nice to meet you guys. hugs from Brazil.
kakobrekla: lol, authentic brazil hugs
kakobrekla: ok good luck

gribble: The20YearIRCloud was last seen in #bitcoin-assets 6 weeks, 0 days, 5 hours, 5 minutes, and 46 seconds ago: <The20YearIRCloud> Big thing has been to have em look over all the financial documents as we're filing taxes for 2014 next month and I didn't want to submit till they had a good idea of it.

mircea_popescu: <kakobrekla> from the top of the hill << o look, czechoslovenia!
mircea_popescu: i mean yugoslovakia
mircea_popescu: felipelalli so what did you want to talk about ?
mircea_popescu: mats: adorbs << lol. yeh.
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes: and does the cooking too << i remember that part.
mircea_popescu: mike_c: i believe english is strongly encouraged. from what I remember when the guy wanting to write in italian showed up. << well, nobody speaks italian. brazil speaks portuguese. i don't directly see a problem with it, if the coverage's any good.
mircea_popescu: but there'd have to be some sort of serious upfront commitment to it. one article now and again isn'treally worth the hassle.
mircea_popescu: felipelalli: But I want to write it in Portuguese to someone translate it to me to English, and I make the final review just to see if anything was misundertood. << this is a non-starter. the person doing the translation can just write their own stuff directly. you're not famous or anything, why'd you imagine someone'd be bothered translating you specifically ?

mircea_popescu: whassat ?
mats: vidya game store
mircea_popescu: i get that part
mats: o, hes doing a reenlistment ceremony to reup his contract
mircea_popescu: felipelalli: I want to hire a statistical company to make a distributed properly research. << there's perhaps better uses to that capital, whatever you'd be spending. seeing how the value of asnwering the "what does brazil think" on whatever topic isn't really that great. i guess it could be a useful demonstration of methodology etc, but that needs some sort of a plan, won't do much as just a shot in the dark.
mats: From the pre-close panel at Shmoocon yesterday: "We used to be smarter than the Feds, it used to be a joke, how dumb they are. The NSA and FBI have a lot of smart people working for them now, I think it may be the other way around these days."
mats: shmoocon was meh this year, though.
mats: although James Forshaw's talk was pretty good. i can't seem to find slides online...
mats: i think attendees were dazzled by the reproduced ANT tools
mats: michael ossmann is the man.

mats: nmap is now a WMD
mircea_popescu: this entire "forget how the machines work we'll make a legal representaton of how they SHOULD work and then hold you to respect that whether you knew it or not" is such nonsense.

mircea_popescu: basically the proposition is that rather than writing good software, bad software will be translated into law language
assbot: Logged on 21-10-2014 01:30:35; asciilifeform: 'As progressively dumber programmers build progressively more complex systems we will see more of this kind of attempt to paper over coding mistakes with lawyers, sanctions, policies, and laws. Hollywood and the RIAA are usually the most successful at getting the government to do their bidding. Thus I predict that one day Disney will have a Web site where you can buy access to any of their movies.
mircea_popescu: except, how the fuck will that work ? here's a broken c program, make a basic version of it and then try to enforce it
mircea_popescu: BEFORE A JURY
mircea_popescu: it's ludicrous as a concept. showing that these idiots posing as "leaders" have the intellectual penetration of frogs.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: lol, have you -seen- an american jury.
