mircea_popescu: asciilifeform the latter. the former only exists in imagination.
trinque: meanwhile looting it
asciilifeform: trinque: this is likely to be repeated, and next on the chopping block is probably 'coinbase'
asciilifeform: the new gox
mircea_popescu: there is not enough bakshees to pass up the chain, because bitcoin is not fiat. they need > 9k% to be satisfied.
trinque: oh, certainly.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform coinbase is definitely on the chopping block.
mircea_popescu: teh republic never liked it.
asciilifeform: meant, that it'll be flushed by usg
asciilifeform: rather than nailed in the wild
mircea_popescu: you generally overtate the efficacity of the derp.
asciilifeform: from outside of the walls it'll look quite like a 'goxing' yes.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: the one thing they know how to do is arson
asciilifeform: in all the various senses of the word
mircea_popescu: but think of it this way : never, in the history of tyhe world, did ~they~ ever destroy anything.
mircea_popescu: if they can, they'll just fgill it with straw and keep pretending.
asciilifeform: yes, it's the flames that destroy, not the boy with the matches
mircea_popescu: mtgox's fall took specific, directed pushing
mircea_popescu: and they tried tooth and nail to keep on.
mircea_popescu: so did everything else, so does everything else.
mircea_popescu: the woman that is the state yields eventually, once squeezed enough. not before.
asciilifeform: one could even argue that gox is not dead, but rather passed the torch to coinbase/bitstamp
asciilifeform: in the same way as ibm passed it to microshit
asciilifeform: and microshit is now passing it to google et al
asciilifeform: the unmistakeable attributes of 'goxitude' - 'kyc/aml' crapolade, mysterious freezes/'questionings'/account dissolutions/'verifications' - carry on
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 127600 @ 0.00033284 = 42.4704 BTC [-] {2}
asciilifeform: as do the basic mechanics of a goxatron - encouragement of off-chain payments via 'codes' rather than proper btc, goading users to keep coin in -exchange's- wallet, etc.
mircea_popescu: yes yes. in any case, mtgox ended exactly the way faux gpg, or system d, or gavincoin, or the sec or the fbi are gonna end
mircea_popescu: we're going to charge particular ineptitude, and employ ridicule
mircea_popescu: they're going to spin and deny and pretend nothing happened.
mircea_popescu: by the book.
mircea_popescu: an' with that, i bid you all something or the other!
decimation: here's how to 'out-scam' the printing press: < "In other words we?re trending toward a society where about half of the working-age adults will kill themselves with 60-80-hour weeks while the other half will relax on the sofa."
assbot: Philip Greenspun's Weblog » Book Review: The Redistribution Recession ... ( )
asciilifeform: decimation: l0l, 'trending toward'
decimation: heh yeah
asciilifeform: i suppose, because the famous '47%' isn't quite half
asciilifeform: the key unwritten truth here is that virtually all employed folks in usa are 'on welfare'
decimation: ^ yes, this is true, and most of their welfare comes in 'tax expendatures'
asciilifeform: because, as described very clearly by tlp (that piece cached on mircea_popescu's www) - they either carry out work directly for usg organs (official or otherwise, e.g., microshit) or perform services for the former
decimation: god forbid that we give up the health care tax break or mortgage interest tax break
asciilifeform: e.g., cook in a restaurant frequented by builders who install glass in office towers paid for by bezzlatron
decimation: asciilifeform: yes indeed, nobody in the us is more than two or three degrees from usg
decimation: asciilifeform: or your business is frequented by those who get checks from the treasury for being poor or whatever
asciilifeform: ^ as described by tlp
assbot: Logged on 27-01-2015 05:02:36; mircea_popescu: "The system not only pays poor people, it employs lots and lots of almost poor people. I'm not saying this is a good thing, or a desirable thing, I am simply stating a fact. Some of these are direct government jobs (e.g. staff down at the SSI office) and some are pretend private sector jobs.

decimation: yes when barely half of your able adults are working while 40% are being paid to slack, it's pretty obvious that the whole thing is a confidence scheme

shmadz: thank you, I'm trying to figure a way to do gpg on android platform. is this possible?
danielpbarron: possible but not recommended
shmadz: for security, right?
danielpbarron: keybase is a way, but you're probably better off getting a real computer first
shmadz: my "real computer" is not with me always. or even often. I was hoping to figure a way to do secure android?
trinque: shmadz: no pill is going to secure android on a cellphone
danielpbarron: you can have "secure cellphone" (just for voice) if you run irc on a computer that doesn't turn off, and connect to that with your cell phone

assbot: 4 results for 'specificity of the diddling' :
trinque: danielpbarron: yeah I use a similar setup
trinque: shmadz: never trust a phone with anything you can't afford to lose
danielpbarron: worst someone can do with compromised irc box is talk as me for as long as i don't notice
danielpbarron: whereas under gribble, the worst they could do was change my key to their key
shmadz: ok, so there is no known solution for secure, pocket sized, computer?
trinque: shmadz: to the logs with you!
danielpbarron: depends.. how pig are your pockets?
trinque: shmadz: define secure
trinque: important to define terms
danielpbarron: you can read the log securely from your phone, although even this is much more enjoyable on a real computer
shmadz: right, I want a solution that is roughly the same size as Samsung note, and runs native Linux, or some secure version of android, if that even exists
trinque: shmadz: again, you need to define secure
trinque: reason being, should you specifically define it, you may find there is no existing device that meets the spec
trinque: or otherwise, it's important to note which actions can and cannot be securely taken on a phone
trinque: which is to say, if you wouldn't do it outside the police station, don't do it on a phone either
trinque: should be obvious
trinque: if you want a phone which does not track your every step, you will not find it
trinque: nor one that respects the privacy of the data you store on it
trinque: so on
danielpbarron: shmadz, if you find yourself in the situation where you need to gpg on the go, you are finding yourself in the wrong situations
trinque: well put
shmadz: thank you, not the answer I'm looking for, but this makes me think there is an opportunity to make the device I want. why is there not secure Linux that can run on a phone-like device?
trinque: man, I dunno that there's a secure linux either
trinque: it's not a 1 or 0 thing
trinque: depends on who the adversary is
danielpbarron: reminds me of the failed key signing party at the last porc fest -- the one after which nobody ended up getting their key signed because all the time was taken setting up a temporary key server when all we had to do was trade fingerprints and sign it later back at home
shmadz: ok, thanks for your help, and thanks for the !up, I think I'm gonna try a remote server to manage the keys, and just remote in from the phone? I don't see any secure solution to my problem atm
danielpbarron: the keys don't need to be on the remote server
danielpbarron: another computer can and should be used to sign and decrypt, and this computer should not be connected to any networks
shmadz: ok, just like offline signing bitcoin transactions? so you use USB to transfer? or you do it by hand? Or what?
danielpbarron: some use a qr code scanner

asciilifeform: (Apocalyptic may have posted the proof somewhere in the logs already. i can't recall.)
asciilifeform: i will note that -not all- phuctored moduli to date are in 'magic98', nor have all of the 98 been (thus far) phuctored or even attempted
asciilifeform: but elementarily, all of them are expected to appear prior to the end of the churn of the sks dump circa last month

ben_vulpes: <asciilifeform> what i did not have time to do is to measure whether this had the intended effect. << how would you measure fragging?
asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: can only be (easily) measured indirectly
asciilifeform: sorta like 'dark matter'
asciilifeform: that is, process has heavy 'footprint' but sum of allocations is a small fraction of it
asciilifeform: the only conclusive test for fragging is manually sweating over a memory dump 'with magnifying glass'

kuzetsa: I've gotta admit, I never paid attention to the timeline enough to know if planes of power / luclin / velious / etc. etc. etc. came before or after <other expansion>
cazalla: kunark, velious, luclin, planes of power, frog xpac which was the first dlc (when i quit)
kuzetsa: nod
cazalla: i spent 16 hours a day playing that shit for years so..
kuzetsa: I did that on starwars galaxies
cazalla: never played it but i have read that it was great prior to some big patch
kuzetsa: I started with everquest, but once that came out SWG became my main MMO for 7 years but then they shut it down a while ago so I dunno
kuzetsa: I miss it, and that "old republic" MMO is rubbish and almost none of my friends from SWG liked it and neither did I lol
cazalla: i still have my old eq boxes with the keith parkinson artwork, wouldn't mind getting some of his long ago signed pieces but can't really spring for it at this point
cazalla: for the money spent on it, swtor was utter shit
kuzetsa: lol yeah
kuzetsa: too much work on game engine design and not enough development into the worldbuidling, gameplay, and storyline
kuzetsa: it's nothing like SWG
cazalla: kuzetsa, i didn't even reach the level cap in swtor, it was basically an inferior WoW with voice overs
kuzetsa: heh

asciilifeform: 2) but not sure if this can be used in battlefield, because - guess what - werker never marked dates of phuctoring, and hence db schema never had a place for this. ergo the only dates we have are of -date submitted-

asciilifeform: kakobrekla: can the rss thing be made to work as expected in the form of a #b-a bot ? or too b0rk3d

williamdunne: Scoopbot can read any RSS or atom feed
kakobrekla: as far as i can tell dates are incorrect but the order is correct in your feed ? thats workable. perhaps scoop can cover it. i can too.
asciilifeform: williamdunne: the dates are entirely unusable. see thread
asciilifeform: i recall that mircea_popescu asked for a real-time phuctor ticker.
asciilifeform: hence why i attempted it
kakobrekla: williamdunne be my guest!
williamdunne: asciilifeform: Dates aren't involved in Scoop's processes
williamdunne: Thoroughly ignored by him.
williamdunne: Uses a persisted Map of URLs to objects. Messages when he sees a new one
asciilifeform: what determines 'new' ?
williamdunne: Whether or not the URL is in the map
asciilifeform: and stores forever ?
williamdunne: Persisted, yes
asciilifeform: thing is, it is actually possible for the same phuctor url to be new twice.
asciilifeform: rss provided no sane way to handle this.
williamdunne: In this case I may have to make a custom set of rules for Phuctor
williamdunne: This is not a problem, so long as something changes between first seen and the update
williamdunne: (title, ideally)
asciilifeform: it is entirely possible for same key to be 'new' twice in succession.
williamdunne: Within how long of each other?
asciilifeform: immediately.
williamdunne: Well then why does this matter? Scoop shares it once and you see both
asciilifeform: it doesn't matter. just pointing out that the thing follows literally none of the prescribed assumptions
asciilifeform: wouldn't want scoopbot to choke on it
williamdunne: Fair enough, think he'll do fine. Fits in quite well with his existing logic
assbot: luke-jr comments on Call me inconsiderate, but THIS is why I don't take Luke-Jr seriously: He lost the majority of his coins on Mt. Gox when there were signs FOR MONTHS to NOT keep coins there. He lacks the ability to properly gauge situations and look into the future. ... ( )
mircea_popescu: <asciilifeform> thing is, it is actually possible for the same phuctor url to be new twice. << it'll be fine im sure.

williamdunne: I'll get working on it on Monday
williamdunne: Anyhow, what in particular is wrong with it? While there is a host of derpy technologies I'm quite fond of some things - like WebSockets
asciilifeform: williamdunne: fundamentally - the idiot polling
asciilifeform: all else follows from this.
williamdunne: Isn't that the point of WebSockets, getting rid of derpy polling?
williamdunne: No moar ajax polling

williamdunne: mircea_popescu: Oh wait I take it back, thats me derping. Message comes up blank
asciilifeform just woke up to the fact that he was a fool when originally wrote phuctor. a phuctored modulus must fragment into factors, each of which is in turn subject to all future attempts at phuctoring
asciilifeform: (if composite per rabin-miller)
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu ^^^^^^
asciilifeform: as it is, the gigantic turds yielded by the current gcd finds will not break apart
asciilifeform: the mechanics of a correct phuctor are, roughly: thing keeps track of keys, rsa moduli within, as existing phuctor does; but instead of flagging 'phuctored' moduli, we keep table of known factors (associated with respective unknowns, which, in turn, may be yet-unphuctored moduli -or- fragments previously created by successful phuctorings)
asciilifeform: likewise, each unknown is stamped with a date of last gcd-ing, as well as sha512 of the mass product at the time this was done.
asciilifeform wanders off to contemplate this
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 161000 @ 0.00035452 = 57.0777 BTC [+] {4}
decimation: asciilifeform: yeah that sounds like a good idea
decimation: it would be nice to click on '3' and call up all the moduli which are factored by '3'
decimation: williamdunne: websockets are 'tardation on top of tardation
williamdunne: What is particularly tarded about WS?
williamdunne still doesn't get it
decimation: the shortcomings of turning a fundamentally broadcast technology into a 'virtual channel'
decimation: inside of which you place another virtual channel
williamdunne: While with that description it does sound a bit tarded, in practise I've found them to work very well
decimation: sure, so do 1950's era pickups in cuba
trinque: williamdunne: on the one hand there's a superficial "did I make it do something, and did it 'work'"
trinque: and on the other there's considering the entire stack that got you to that point, and whether that made any sense
trinque: first off the thing's not a socket; iirc it throws you wads o' data piecemeal
trinque: you can't stream arbitrary binary data over it
trinque: (maybe I'm wrong? don't think so)
danielpbarron: !up DanyAlos
trinque: I mean to be specific it's a wrapper around a socket with certain assumptions on how it'll be used; it doesn't just give you a raw unix socket and say "go at it"
trinque: apparently in some newer version of the standard it has a binary streaming thing
williamdunne: Would there be any particular benefit to that in its intended usage? JSON/MsgPack/whatever all work fine with anything I can imagine being necessary on the web
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 65600 @ 0.00033557 = 22.0134 BTC [-] {2}
trinque: williamdunne: what do you want to do with it?
williamdunne: Streaming basic pricing data, and submitting/receiving bets are the two I have used it for
trinque: oh, you wanted bitbet to provide a websocket?
williamdunne: Fairly simplistic stuff
williamdunne: Unrelated
trinque: ah k
trinque: so adding a bunch of persistent connections is going to increase overhead
williamdunne: But if there were best happening more than every second, sure that'd be a great feature to see
williamdunne: Overhead vs the AJAX method? I'd bet otherwise
trinque: no need to bet.
trinque: it depends on what users are doing
trinque: on the one hand, anyone with the site open in a tab is going to be a connection your server will have open
trinque: on the ajax side, you may have tons of unnecessary polling
trinque: so you would have to actually try both and see based on your own situation which is more expensive
trinque: I think nginx does pretty well handling a bunch of idle websocket connections
trinque: and can hand them off to some backend nicely
williamdunne: Very true, but anything where the data is somewhat frequent I reckon would be better off in WS
williamdunne: Yes, I was using Phoenix which handles it very well
trinque: there are other things to consider
trinque: browsers can pipeline requests through the same connection
assbot: HTTP pipelining - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia ... ( )
trinque: so the ajax vs ws thing may be more similar than it appears

trinque: williamdunne: I don't even mean that, just that polling might not look much different load-wise from the WS doing its thing
trinque: that said I've used websockets; the whole browser's shit, subset of which WS are shit
trinque: lol
trinque: williamdunne: and to elaborate on the reason why, the browser was a nightmarish wad of complexity before WS
trinque: WS just bolt another huge attack surface to the thing
