BingoBoingo: DanTheBitcoinMan: BitBet tends to reject bets unlikely to attract betting action
DanTheBitcoinMan: I see, but I thought it would attract some good betting action.
DanTheBitcoinMan: So many idiots out there supporting this blatant scam, surely they would bet on it. Kind of like how the BFL Monarch delivery bet went.
BingoBoingo: DanTheBitcoinMan: I'm not a BitBet mod, but a short on XPY with small stakes looks like Garza looking to rob again
mircea_popescu: DanTheBitcoinMan the idea is for the proponent of the scamcoin in question to put btc down on it.
DanTheBitcoinMan: Ah, nevermind I completely didn't think about that.
mircea_popescu: this worked historically with bfl, stuck them for a decent sum
DanTheBitcoinMan: Yeah, they'd manipulate and dumb to oblivion to win the bet, last ditch effort if it got big enough
DanTheBitcoinMan: dumb = dump
DanTheBitcoinMan: Yeah, the BFL Bet was beautiful.
assbot: The positive market effects of the delivery bet. pe Trilema - Un blog de Mircea Popescu. ... ( )
mircea_popescu: anyway, the right way to go about it is, challenge garza or w/e is pushing the thing to put some btc down
DanTheBitcoinMan: Missed that one. The delivery bet needs to be used more often.
BingoBoingo: Anyways the onus is on the deliverer or someone they've built faith in to initiate one of those
BingoBoingo: Thing is even Josh Zerlan knew where to put money down and Homero doesn't respect that.
DanTheBitcoinMan: Yeah, really, I'm sure that BFL placing that bet they still ended up convincing some poor souls that they truly were going to deliver
DanTheBitcoinMan: I guess it just costs them a little bit more to keep running their scams
BingoBoingo: DanTheBitcoinMan: And yet in the long run BFl lost so much more.
DanTheBitcoinMan: So what are everyone's thoughts here about Gavin running around and trying to promote his idea of raising the block size limit? Can anyone point me to a very good argument detailing the reasons this should be avoided?

ascii_field: chip is out of print, and next version is quite deliberately incompatible.

mod6: it /shouldnt/ matter because it puts a .gnupg dir in the place where you run the script from. we didn't want it to diddle with your normal keyring in ~/
mod6: unless you ran it from ~/

mod6: did you guys make new dirs to build this stuff in?
mod6: what does `gpg --version` say?
decimation: I'm using 2.0.14 (comes with centos 6)
danielpbarron: gpg (GnuPG) 2.0.26
mod6: hmm, still, should be ok. i just re-ran on my side and got: >> Signature verified for bitcoin-asciilifeform.1.patch.sig
mod6: one sec.
decimation: :signature packet: algo 1, keyid B98228A001ABFFC7
mod6: what's weird to me... is that the log output that danielpbarron pasted, it says "good signature"
danielpbarron: i checked it manually
mod6: OH
decimation: Importing public keys to .gnupg keyring...
decimation: Verifing patch signatures..
decimation: Error! Possible bad signature on:
decimation: ~/bitcoin-v009/build/chicken/bitcoin-asciilifeform.1.patch.sig
mod6: oh that wasn't from the log output. ok. i wonder why it would puke for you guys, but not for me... although, im running 1.4.10

mircea_popescu: you know it's be so great if someone made a client that auto-pastebinned
mod6: i suppose it could be some weird regex failure... although, what danielpbarron pasted as a manual verify should have matched this:
mod6: 313 if($_ =~ /^.*Good signature.*$/) {
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 93636 @ 0.00036156 = 33.855 BTC [+] {6}
asciilifeform: line 2: $'\r': command not found
asciilifeform: and buncha similar.
decimation: I get a buncha errors in the gpg_import.log
mod6: can you post those decimation?
mod6: asciilifeform: what script was that?
asciilifeform: the one in question
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 226241 @ 0.00036729 = 83.0961 BTC [+] {2}
mod6: the perl script?
assbot: dpaste: 2141VBQ ... ( )
asciilifeform: does not run at all on my box
mod6: oh we're all discussing them pulling down the patch files, verifing the patch sigs and patching the base code
mod6: (
asciilifeform: i mean, my 'sh' won't swallow it.
trinque: that it's $HOME maybe?
trinque: gpg is fouling up not finding the keyring
decimation: it's a little weird to use $HOME that isn't $HOME
asciilifeform: there's fucking winblows garbage in this thing
mod6: decimation: fair. i'll change that next time through.
asciilifeform: did 'pastebin' crap that in ?
asciilifeform: there's CR LF's in there
decimation: lol in my dpaste?
asciilifeform pronounced fatwa on 'pastebin'
mod6: root@debian-test:/home/mod6/build-test-3# xxd | grep "0d0a"
assbot: dpaste: 2141VBQ ... ( )
mod6: root@debian-test:/home/mod6/build-test-3#
mod6: yeah, must be pastebin :/
mod6: sorry
asciilifeform: dos2unix fixes.
asciilifeform: but let all remember.
decimation: asciilifeform: everything feels free to mangle a passing cr I guess
mod6: i use pastebin more often because it does forever-pastes .. guess.. i just have to set dpaste for a year
assbot: Logged on 29-10-2014 01:36:19; asciilifeform: because plain ascii is like naked people
assbot: Logged on 29-10-2014 01:36:30; asciilifeform: everything feels free to manipulate the hanging bits
trinque: ^LOL
mod6: :]
decimation: ^also randomly insert chars
asciilifeform: so far the deps are grinding
mod6: decimation: huh, just looked at that error. must be something with 2.x version i'll have to fix0r.
mod6: can you change expiry on that guy for like 1 year?
decimation: yeah obviously some kind of permission problem
decimation: for the dpaste?
mod6: plz
mod6: if you run it again and you don't have $FULL_CLEAN set to "TRUE", you'll need to delete ~/build/.gnupg manually.
mircea_popescu: * asciilifeform pronounced fatwa on 'pastebin' << kakobrekla said we're supposed to use dpaste.
mod6: ugh. anyway, i was hoping this would be the /easy/ part and we could actually test the part that needs testing lol.
asciilifeform: not the output
asciilifeform: but that was probably clear.
asciilifeform: betcha 'dpaste' takes a fat shit in there all the same
asciilifeform: but somebody test if want to
asciilifeform: it's building 'openssl' on my box now. and probably will for a few hrs, it's a slow box
decimation: mod6: I set $FULL_CLEAN to "FALSE" and it didn't do anything different
decimation: I blew away build/.gnupg
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 71419 @ 0.00036213 = 25.863 BTC [-] {3}
mod6: here's that same script in dpaste:
assbot: dpaste: 36249E3 ... ( )
mod6: decimation: ok. that's fine. not sure what it's deal is.
mod6: thanks for giving it a shot.
decimation: no problem
decimation: it's probably a good idea to get it working on centos6 because that's pretty much the 'amazon linux' shit
mod6: eh, all around it's not much of an issue with the perl script, because no one will run that ever anyway.
mod6: i'll use it to patch the source code, then i'll bundle up the release.
mod6: everyone will start with an already patched codebase, unless they want to patch it manually or wrestle with one of the 2 scripts we have for this purpose
mod6: it seems, everyone has a mixed bag so it's hard to account for all of that i think.
decimation: yeah cross-platform is a pain in the ass
mod6: asciilifeform: this is the correct key to pull for you right?
assbot: Public Key Server -- Get "0xb98228a001abffc7 " ... ( )
mod6: decimation: anyway, it totally works fine for me on my aws machine.
mod6: oh, i guess im running a deb6 ami up there.
decimation: lemme try
mod6: and yeah, im using gpg 1.4.10 there too
mod6: so centos6 might have issues if gpg 2.x, so maybe i just need to get my head out of my ass and add some code for that.
decimation: yeah ec2 uses gpg 2.0.25
trinque: mod6: I got through the patching script fine on latest gentoo
trinque: what shell is supposed to be running the next one
mod6: it's a bourne shell script /bin/sh
trinque: my sh does not have -xu
trinque: I think in debian sh is dash, maybe?
mod6: ahh, just take off those params then. it doesn't need 'em i don't think.
mod6: ben addded those, not exactly sure what they do. lol.
trinque strokes the cargo
mod6: thanks for testing trinque
asciilifeform: still cranking 'boost'
mod6: ahh, ok cool.
mod6: did you get through the perl script ok alf?
asciilifeform: wai wat
asciilifeform: is that in the sh somewhere
trinque: mod6: no problem, chugging along in the build
mod6: no, the perl script is a separate thing that grabs the v0.5.3 base code and then patches it. then `' pulls bdb,openssl,and boost and builds 'em and then builds the static bitcoind
mod6: for all: keep in mind if you're not running the test on a x64 machine, you'll probably have to edit the vars on lines 4, 6 & 8
asciilifeform: neh it is
decimation: interesting, it seems that it works just fine on amazon linux
decimation: so it's not a gpg2 thing
mod6: ok so your amazon linux is running gpg v 1.4.10?
decimation: no 2.0.25
asciilifeform: built deps, croaked on not finding bitcoin src
danielpbarron: oh uh.. i'm not running on a x64 machine (if that means bits in processor)
asciilifeform: why are these separate scripts again ?
mod6: danielpbarron: yeah, that'll be a problem. what os/arch are you on?
mod6: asciilifeform: because how we'll roll out the release: 1) I'll patch the source myself and put it in a 'bitcoin' directory 2) i'll place the '' in the same parent directory as 'bitcoin' directory 3) tar those up 4) end user will unpack archive and execute `'
danielpbarron: gentoo i386
mod6: so in the end the downloading/patching of the v0.5.3 base code won't be necessary since it'll already be complete.
mod6: danielpbarron: ok, change line 4 to: "32", line 6 to: "x86_32" and line 8 to: "linux-x86_32"
mod6: and cross fingers
mod6: i've never tested this on 32bit so this is a first.
mod6: in fact.
trinque: decimation: did you try changing that home var to something else?
trinque: I search and replaced mine with BUILD_DIR
trinque: so as not to mask $HOME
decimation: I'll try that
danielpbarron: of what, ? I hadn't even gotten that far yet
mod6: while you're at it danielpbarron comment out line 130 of "" so I can have you run one other command if you get through the static build.
mod6: (130 = "strip" command)
mod6: sorry, yes.
mod6 is slow.
decimation: trinque: no that didn't work
danielpbarron: no sorry i'm just distracted by the 3d gun guy trying to impress me on twitter
mod6: at the end of the static build there are 2 ugly warnings, but they're just warnings. so no worries.
mod6: heheh.
mod6: np, thanks for your help.
decimation: it might be that the umask on the amazon box is group writable, but isn't on my centos6 obx
mod6: hmm. noted. thanks decimation
danielpbarron: fwiw, I got 50 USD worth of link clicks pointing at this ->
assbot: Logged on 05-03-2015 04:00:14; asciilifeform: to round off the electrobullet thread, i made this gedankenexperiment up for this just to show what folks like wilson -would- be doing if they were serious
decimation: ok I fixed it
decimation: you need to add --lock-never to make it work, because I am using a shitty vm-mounted filesystem that doesn't support hardlinks
asciilifeform: what means '50 usd worth' ? that it cost you that much bandwidth ?
asciilifeform: danielpbarron ^
decimation: (add it to your gpg command line in the script)
mod6: decimation: nice find!
danielpbarron: idk, twitter makes up the number; that's what it would have cost me to promote it myself (if not for wilson himself actually replying to it and getting it free attention)
asciilifeform: link? or was it boring
decimation: see if that's backwards compatible to gpg v1
assbot: “Cody Wilson Wants to Destroy Your World” by /ajzaleski
asciilifeform: danielpbarron: mega-snore
asciilifeform: it's a 'you. -- no, you. -- no, you. ... ... ...'
asciilifeform naively thought that wilson would have actually replied to the linked thing
danielpbarron: nobody every "actually replies" to stuff on social media
asciilifeform not sufficient zoologist to say if this or not
decimation: it seems that the telegraphers circa 1880 had better technology for sharing information
decimation: ok my centos6 box appears to lack 'realpath'
asciilifeform: neh just better people
mod6: ok, here's version v0.0.9.1 (seems to work with --lock--never added to lines 279 & 305 on v1):
assbot: dpaste: 2WRMSD7 ... ( )
mod6: also removed $HOME for $BUILD_DIR
mod6: s/--lock--never/--lock-never/
decimation: ok that kinda works, except it deletes all the sources except bitcoin
mod6: oh crap, lol, i didn't change the $BUILD_DIR back to "CHANGEME" derp
decimation: yeah I saw that heh
mod6: yeah, that's its default behavior. if you don't want it to delete the stuff, just change $FULL_CLEAN to "FALSE"
danielpbarron: << output of (with your modifications for 32)
decimation: ok that works
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 75900 @ 0.00036841 = 27.9623 BTC [+] {3}
mod6: ok here it is again. sorry:
assbot: dpaste: 2MB8HVF ... ( )
mod6 looks at danielpbarron's paste
decimation: sigh, no package realpath is available
mod6: yeah, that's required from the original pogo script.
mod6: there's a realpath bin you can install iirc
mod6: danielpbarron: try editing the script and getting rid of the -xu thing after /bin/sh
mod6: im glad we're all trying this now.
danielpbarron: bash: ./ /bin/sh^M: bad interpreter: No such file or directory
mod6: one sec, i'll get you a new one. pastebin fucked us.
assbot: Logged on 12-03-2015 02:33:50; asciilifeform: there's fucking winblows garbage in this thing
decimation: ok yes that last dpaste works for me
decimation: danielpbarron: windows adds an extra character to the end of each line
decimation: because it sucks
danielpbarron: why can't i see these extra characters; vi on openbsd would show them
decimation: donno. emacs with whitespace mode shows them
mod6: yeah, pastebin sticks on CRLF's... like a derp
mod6: so ... i guess perhaps we try with dpaste and see.
danielpbarron: same problem
asciilifeform: dos2unix
mod6: i don't even own or use a M$ machine, so it has to be the paste sites.
decimation: try > dox2unix
decimation: mod6: on centos6 you can use /bin/readlink -f to substitute for 'realpath'
mod6: ah! ok good to know.
danielpbarron: :e ++ff=unix
danielpbarron: ^ that fixed it in vim
mod6: yeah, that works too. cool
danielpbarron: ok it's compiling
danielpbarron: i commented out that line you told me to
mod6: thanks, that's good. i'll have you do a `cd bitcoin/src ; readelf --dynamic bitcoind` when its complete.
mod6: i haven't compiled on a 32bit system yet so this is a great test.
decimation: the 'installing docs' step is really slow
decimation: it's downloading the boost tarball
decimation: sucks
mod6: yeah, it's like 60mb or something.
