mircea_popescu: anyway, istanbul's great, prague's fulla sluts and therefore greater. bucharest... whatevs.
pete_dushenski: of those 3, prague definitely has the best womenz
mircea_popescu prefers the turkish 35lb butt to the czech slender type

mircea_popescu: THAT can lead to excellent conversation

mircea_popescu: this may well be true
mircea_popescu is happy with the quality of intellect

pete_dushenski: speaking of traveling, fuck me if i don't have four sets of friends who just got engaged in the last month or two
pete_dushenski: if another one of them has a wedding at the same time as $conference....

pete_dushenski: and spoil the look on their face when i tell them that something in the world might be more important than their wedding ?
pete_dushenski: "One way to un-cast the Islamic State’s spell over its adherents would be to overpower it militarily and occupy the parts of Syria and Iraq now under caliphate rule. Al‑Qaeda is ineradicable because it can survive, cockroach-like, by going underground. The Islamic State cannot. If it loses its grip on its territory in Syria and Iraq, it will cease to be a caliphate. Caliphates cannot exist as underground mov
pete_dushenski: ements, because territorial authority is a requirement: take away its command of territory, and all those oaths of allegiance are no longer binding. Former pledges could of course continue to attack the West and behead their enemies, as freelancers. But the propaganda value of the caliphate would disappear, and with it the supposed religious duty to immigrate and serve it.

mircea_popescu: anyway, for the record, the only cockroaches in the middle west are the americans atm.
pete_dushenski: middle east ?
mircea_popescu: their underground being made up out of random social media
pete_dushenski: not that midwest isn't also full of 'em
mircea_popescu: well yeah.
mircea_popescu: anyway, who the fuck came up with the territorial nonsense quoited above anyway ?
pete_dushenski: << graeme wood in an article for 'the atlantic'
mircea_popescu: you'd think people actuaslly involved in strategic planning have enough of a tin ear to hear the sort of "o noes, things aren't like we have emotionally invested ourselves into them being, let us rehash how trhings shjould be so we don't have to change or even examine our priors" whine.
mircea_popescu: territory's not worth squat. bitcoin, tmsr~ does actually better than any known state PRECISELY because all its territory is virtual.
mircea_popescu: territory was important when the economy was based on working the land.
mircea_popescu: then the industrial revolution came, and england was the size of a cumsplotch, and it didn't matter.

mircea_popescu: 100 mb, not so bad.
mircea_popescu: decimation and the pretorian guard failed to help nero.
pete_dushenski: decimation: it's necessary but not sufficient
nubbins`: mild panic this past winter when i realized the obstruction my metal snow shovel wouldn't pound through was... fibre into the house

pete_dushenski: dpr lacked surplus of intelligence in other regards

nubbins`: it's useful if the telco tells you to fuck off
nubbins`: look, your phone's connected to x towers right now, each with a diff signal strength. basic math gives a rough location
nubbins`: stingray would ostensibly be a single-point unit, less useful for triangulation, more of a "warmer/colder" style
pete_dushenski: makes sense.
pete_dushenski: telco telling cops to fuck off though ? maybe 10 years ago.
pete_dushenski: not that there wouldn't be some red tape and paperwork, i suppose.
nubbins`: go back and re-watch The Wire and see the hassle they went through tapping cell phones, and then imagine giving them a suitcase that blasts out the strongest cell signal in the projects so every phone preferentially tries to connect to it
nubbins`: it's a boon for cops
pete_dushenski: the wire was also 10 years ago
pete_dushenski: based on intel older than that

williamdunne: Pure hilarity on this show
alphonse23_: what's up
williamdunne: Two identical twin brothers at a festival, guy tries to cheat on his girlfriend with some bird
asciilifeform: alphonse23_: author of 'phuctor' speaking. you had questions ?
williamdunne: Brother calls him out
williamdunne: They argue with each other
williamdunne: The other brother fucks his bird
alphonse23_: what does 4096 refer to
alphonse23_: the maximum size of the primes
asciilifeform: alphonse23_: no. the size of the modulus, typically a product of two primes
alphonse23_: or the maximum size of what the two primes are multiplied to each other?
williamdunne: Bits of entropy
alphonse23_: so 4096 is the maximum size of the product of the two primes?
williamdunne: Only on Debian
alphonse23_: doesn't that only leave a handful of primes though
alphonse23_: you could just check them all.
alphonse23_: right?
asciilifeform: is the question specifically concerning the buggy debian rng ?
asciilifeform: or rsa in general
williamdunne: RSA in general
williamdunne: Debian was a joke on my part
asciilifeform: williamdunne: i think we have a genuine noob here, and you are addling him
asciilifeform: williamdunne: please stop.
alphonse23_: i'm not that big of a noob
williamdunne: alphonse23_: This might help you understand what the 4096 means
alphonse23_: just not an expert
asciilifeform: alphonse23_: 'checking them all', given current of foreseeable technology, would take several thousand years.
alphonse23_: and what point are you not a noob
alphonse23_: maybe you can ask that about everything
alphonse23_: and maybe I shouldn't care
trinque: alphonse23_: noob's not an insult
trinque: "beginner's mind"
asciilifeform: alphonse23_: rsa is not especially complicated. you can understand the basic idea after an hour's study
alphonse23_: yea, I've read a fair share of online guides about it
alphonse23_: I kind of understand
alphonse23_: still don't get elliptical curve cryptography at all.
asciilifeform: alphonse23_: 'phuctor' deals only with traditional rsa keys.
alphonse23_: twitter works on 2056 I think
alphonse23_: why no go decrypt some twitter traffic or something
alphonse23_: what's the purpose of all this?
asciilifeform: alphonse23_: basic idea, which is very old, is that euclid's greatest-common-divisor algorithm is very fast, for arbitrarily large numbers. so if two or more rsa keys were to share a factor, it will pop up.
williamdunne: Can only break bad keys
asciilifeform: alphonse23_: the idea is to find evidence of sabotaged implementations of rsa key generator.

alphonse23_: interesting
alphonse23_: I've never heard of the sks key server
asciilifeform: alphonse23_: it isn't one specific server, but a network of mirrors
asciilifeform: entirely automatic
asciilifeform: typically users of pgp/gpg upload their public keys there, and they can later be retrieved by anyone using a hash of the key

alphonse23_: i've been using a service called lately. Is that a noob service?
ben_vulpes: !s keybase
assbot: 64 results for 'keybase' :
shinohai: keybase blows
williamdunne: Personally I like it, just don't store your keys there
alphonse23_: I have some invite codes
asciilifeform: alphonse23_: if you let them generate keys for you, they have your private key. this ought to be elementarily obvious
alphonse23_: if anyone wants them :)
alphonse23_: that's a good point asciilifeform
shinohai: Thats just it, I wouldn't be storing my keys there.
alphonse23_: that generate the primes right in front of you! :)
alphonse23_: *they generate the primes
williamdunne: shinohai: Exactly, you don't have to, to use the service :)
alphonse23_: I guess it's made very user friendly though
shinohai: It's nice and all, but I just don't see the advantage over plain gpg
alphonse23_: it comes with a CLI app that lets you verify anyone on their servers
asciilifeform: alphonse23_: it is 'user friendly' in the same way that a mousetrap is mouse-friendly
trinque: alphonse23_: ever heard "if it's free, you're the product" ?
alphonse23_: maybe though the issue is, where would one store a public key. on whose server
alphonse23_: it would probably be like facebook, if it ever got popular. Which ever server became the most widespread.
shinohai: Don't. Use a keyring or a yubi.
BingoBoingo: <alphonse23_> maybe though the issue is, where would one store a public key. on whose server << Ideally if you want people to find your public key you spray it all over, but especially spray it in venues associated with your identity.
asciilifeform: alphonse23_: there is a large and well-established network of public key servers. e.g., and other sks
alphonse23_: I have many online identities. I think purpose is to verify and unify those identities
asciilifeform: alphonse23_: they all mirror one another.
alphonse23_: so people know it's you
asciilifeform: alphonse23_: for people whom you will never meet, 'you' are the key. and nothing else.
alphonse23_: had no idea. I only used because someone I know was using it, and I thought it was a great idea.
trinque: alphonse23_: if someone other than you knows your private key, it is by definition not private
alphonse23_: I don't give out my private key
asciilifeform: alphonse23_: except to keybase?
danielpbarron: alphonse23_, the sites that keybase lets you link to your identity aren't really worth linking to your identity
alphonse23_: well. they don't have my private key
shinohai: ^ danielpbarron
asciilifeform: alphonse23_: if you let them generate it, they have it
trinque: keybase sticks it in browser local storage, right?
alphonse23_: but they did show the primes generated for it when I signed up for the service
trinque: alphonse23_: all they have to do is ship you some javascript once that reads that and transmits it elsewhere
alphonse23_: so you could say it's a compromised service
asciilifeform: alphonse23_: the very idea is braindamaged
alphonse23_: ok fine. But should I not trust keybase...
alphonse23_: I'm not sure. I was just trying out the service
williamdunne: alphonse23_: Its compromised if you a) generate your keys with them, or b) store your keys with them.
alphonse23_: but yes, I should probably micromanage my own keys and passwords
williamdunne: Its not even micromanaging, its just owning
trinque: one should use the same precautions with their bitcoin private keys.
trinque: you only own the coin if you *own* the private keys in the strictest sense
danielpbarron: the recommendation in here is to not even use newer versions of gpg, let alone some add-on made by a dating website guy
asciilifeform: alphonse23_: if someone else has a copy of your private key, whether because you let them generate it for you, or gave it up for storage for 'convenience', he can do anything which you can do. this ought to be obvious

mod6: im beginning to be skeptical that anyone can just get this working very easily though.
shinohai: I haven't delved into gentoo :/
mod6: so hopefully the guide I create will make it a bit easier. hopefully.

mircea_popescu: gabriel_laddel how's the os business.
decimation: yeah, people need to read the 'end-to-end principle'
decimation: shoving shit into the lower layers of the conceptual stack just ends up causing pain and suffering
gabriel_laddel: mircea_popescu: still don't have funding, but coming along
gabriel_laddel: re:not rewriting code, the story of CMUCL and its transformation into SBCL is quite pertinent
mircea_popescu: gpg --encrypt --armor -r <yourname> hit enter then put whatever passwords in there, hit ctrl-d and save the output.

mircea_popescu: << there still doesn't exist an eulora gentoo guide, for instance.
assbot: Logged on 03-06-2015 01:20:00; danielpbarron: once it's working it's quite nice
mircea_popescu: that "once" may well be bridge too far for many practical applications.
gabriel_laddel: mod6: I have a *working* funtoo install guide, which is for all intents and purposes the same as gentoo
gabriel_laddel: it has been tested twice, is solid
mod6: feel free to send it my way.
gabriel_laddel: !s system.html
assbot: 10 results for 'system.html' :
mod6: i'll try it out. i hosed up my grub; haven't had a chance to tinker/rebuild yet.
gabriel_laddel: Section #2, Installing
mircea_popescu: " This is a time consuming PITA. "
mircea_popescu: i feel encouraged.
gabriel_laddel: it'll eat an entire day
gabriel_laddel: hence, I reccomend waiting on the automated install
gabriel_laddel: but if mod6 is in need of something that works, well - there it is
mircea_popescu: "If your system's date and time are too far off (typically by months or years,) then it may prevent Portage from properly downloading source tarballs. "
mircea_popescu: motherfucker.
gabriel_laddel: mircea_popescu: yeah, portage needs to die - 70k loc, python.
mircea_popescu: it's just... why the fuck would the color of your blouse decide whether it rains that day
mod6: thanks, just took a look. im not even sure my problems are gentoo related exactly. i think i have a good /etc/fstab. and i /think/ my partition table was setup correctly with fdisk. this pos box had win7 on it, im guessing it's MBR and not EFI.
decimation: possibly because it tries to download timestamped files?
decimation: on the other hand, how hard would it be to use ntpdate first
gabriel_laddel: why would it need to download timestamped files?
mod6: but when i boot up, i get "grub2> " prompt and then shit like this: "(hd0) (hd0,msdos1) (hd0,msdos2) (hd0,msdos3) (hd0,msdos4) (fd0)"
mod6: well, after an `ls` at the grub prompt anyway.
mod6: i basically created a livecd, did everything as instructed through the gentoo handbook.
decimation: I donno, I didn't program it. I still remember cursing portage a decade ago while recompiling X again
gabriel_laddel: mod6: I'd compare your fdisk -l /dev/sda with the contents of /etc/fstab
mod6: gabriel_laddel: werd. it /seems/ right. but like I said, maybe another look will tell the tale. i'll be checking it out more tomorrow.
decimation: mod6: creating an 'installer' that will work on abitrary hardware is not easy at all
mod6: if all else fails, i'll give your guide a shot.
mircea_popescu: decimation it's due to the cert business.
decimation: ah makes sense
mircea_popescu: because god fucking forbid you download pgp signed matter and verify it locally
mircea_popescu: nu-uh, gotta pki the shit.
decimation: heh, well gpg has the same issue
mircea_popescu: all-the-wrong-things (tm)
decimation: I tend to agree that expiration dates don't belong on keys
decimation: keys can expire
mircea_popescu: key expiring has nothing to do with verifying material they produced tho
decimation: key expiration is kinda like the 'colored coins' idea
decimation: no it does not
mircea_popescu: heh i guess so
decimation: but nevertheless someone thought they should program a check for the expiration date on the pki cert
decimation: and/or "it couldn't possibly be valid if my wall-clock says so"
mircea_popescu: it's just this entire frantic activity as a cover-up for impotence.
mircea_popescu: retarded people who do not belong in front of a computer try their darndest to "make it secure" but have no fucking idea what that is
mircea_popescu: so they just throw things at it. "Can't hurt, right ?" "test more things"
mircea_popescu: "nobody can say we're not hard at work over here"
decimation: well, computers are fundamentally impotent, especially w.r.t. security
decimation: and poor quality hardware implementations
decimation: lots of ultimately fruitless activity triggered by both of those
gabriel_laddel: mod6: fyi, if you follow that funtoo install guide and don't use the masamune-specific replacements you'll end up with a binary kernel (funtoo has already started decaying) - make sure you use the KERNEL section of system.html if nothing else
gabriel_laddel: also, I've a frozen stage3 tarball you may want to use
decimation: I thought funtoo used rhel kernels
gabriel_laddel: decimation: debian
gabriel_laddel: by default anyhow
mircea_popescu: gabriel_laddel if you're going to be doing code preservation you prolly want to hash and deed like i did on the eulora binaries for nvidia drivers.
trinque: gabriel_laddel: PSA that deedbot likes to eat manifests
trinque: heh
gabriel_laddel: alrighty

BingoBoingo: In other news, training to get into shape for boxing training is progressing nicely. 80 pushups yesterday... May be able to try a boxing gym next year. Would be nice if I could line it up with USian exodus
trinque: BingoBoingo: have a destination yet?
mircea_popescu: 80 pushups ?!
mod6: gabriel_laddel: ok thanks for the heads up
mircea_popescu: can you do any chinups yet ?
BingoBoingo: trinque: Maybe mexico city or Makati
trinque: cool
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: Doing dumbell rows to get the strength to get to chinups/pullups. In the interim cutting weight to make that stuff easier.
BingoBoingo: !up gabriel_laddel
BingoBoingo: brb, seeing if I can do chin ups
Landgull: Bingo - if central America looks good to you/you speak Spanish, south America is also a good place to flee to.
asciilifeform: << portage fetches many things from version control systems of various sorts (cvs, svn, git, mercurial, etc, ..., etc) and these typically barf when clock is wildly off

mircea_popescu: asciilifeform if every time i went to buy a quart of milk the teller asked me what time it is...
mircea_popescu: i'd prolly just go back to a life of murder.
BingoBoingo: Landgull: I'd like to travel though as nobody
BingoBoingo: And no, not chin-up in shape yet
Landgull: If you're avoiding the US, you want to establish at the very least legal permanent residence, and proof of it somewhere else, for the tax exemption.
BingoBoingo: Landgull: Atm USia isn't so bad because I have nothing.
asciilifeform: i beg to differ, it's pretty bad with nothing
BingoBoingo: But as that changes situation will get moar desperate
asciilifeform: perhaps my nothings are different from BingoBoingo's ?
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Our scales may be differently calibrated.
trinque: my life's pretty good, but as long as I'm here I'm no better than a happy citizen of the reich
Landgull: Fair enough. I established Paraguayan legal residency a while back as a way to 1) have legal residence in a 0% tax area and 2) have a guaranteed place I'm allowed to go if the world suddenly decides that it doesn't really want Americans hanging about.
asciilifeform: Landgull: how do you plan to get there? glider ?
asciilifeform: i recently learned, to some surprise, that ru is now a destination for immigrants
Landgull: They can't ban flights in and out of the US, that would strangle the beast.
BingoBoingo: My nothing consists of an ongoing misdemeanor legal case that constrains my travel (2 years nao) and older relatives I help to keep out of the nursing home.
asciilifeform: (but same problem as anywhere else - what to eat)
asciilifeform: !s republikflucht
assbot: 10 results for 'republikflucht' :
trinque: only possible (and certainly not easy) solution seems to be to establish bitcoin revenue streams, and *in time*
trinque: that and coffee wake me up in the morning
asciilifeform: trinque: another solution is to discover cold fusion, interstellar engine, or time travel
trinque: nobody ever once started a business and made any money
asciilifeform: business without any geographic peg at all? sure, some
asciilifeform: but rounds to 0.
Landgull: Or to go to places where you can live comfortably on ~$500-750 a month, and teach English.
trinque: Landgull: *mandarin :P
asciilifeform: Landgull: why do you imagine anyone will pay you this to teach english
trinque: I have a buddy learning that now
asciilifeform: esp. after u.s. is done
Landgull: Well, by the time the US is done, you should have found some way to integrate yourself into the local community.
gabriel_laddel: asciilifeform: korea
BingoBoingo: Landgull: Understand most places where teaching English for money is a thing are awfully xenophobic to white people as residents. Like Korea.
Landgull: Bingo: Go to Georgia - your visitor's visa is good for 360 days out of 365 (take a trip across a border to anywhere, or just give someone a $10 bribe) and English is becoming the new state language, replacing Russian, so native English speakers are in demand.
Landgull: CIS countries aren't exactly paradise, but if you want out, there are plenty of ways out.
BingoBoingo: Landgull: I've got ideas, just working on means of execution. Georgia doesn't seem like a good fit.
Landgull: Fair enough. I haven't been to Georgia yet, I'm hoping to visit sometime in the next few months.
