decimation: wait why don't they have the transactions?
decimation: or is it just saying that they aren't databased efficiently?
decimation: such a thing would be needed for the 'private wallet query service' that ascii and I discussed last night
ben_vulpes: decimation: now is when i confess to a quarter-implemented blockchain->relational db importer
ben_vulpes: attn aspiring asseteers!
ben_vulpes: if you had the whole blockchain querieable in postgres, you could infer account balances in the usual fashion and sell reads over a pg connection
decimation: yeah, or any relational database
decimation: like bdb for instance
ben_vulpes: has anyone verified the full chain as puked out from asciilifeform's `shitblock`?
shinohai: I just now got connected to mp's node so i guess i got to start over
ben_vulpes: huh bdb is actually relational?
ben_vulpes: i was under the impression that it was either not relational or was only being used in bitcoind as a kv store
ben_vulpes: p. sure the transaction indices were tossed for space saving reasons aka shitgnomery
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 37900 @ 0.00050923 = 19.2998 BTC [+]
decimation: ah you are right, it isn't relational, it's just a key value hash
ben_vulpes: fucking kv stores
decimation: I can see 'saving space' for the transactional table, but why also keep the blockchain in binary form?
ben_vulpes: i've lost weeks, months of my life to the unqueriability of mongo and phriendz
decimation: I suspect satoshi intended on making a transactional database using the block .dat files at a later date
ben_vulpes: the whole thing should be in sqlite at the very least
decimation: shitgnome bitcoin devs never bothered apparently
ben_vulpes: but perhaps there's a good reason for writing the blocks directly to disk that i'm not grasping
decimation: yeah I don't grasp it either
decimation: other than 'wanting a backup copy'
ben_vulpes does not see the problem with hashing values queried directly out of the db
decimation: or using it to feed another tool, like has been accomplished
decimation: mongo is the hotness these days
ben_vulpes: if you're storing as the appropriate ints, floats, doubles, strings etc
ben_vulpes: you can even derp the raw binary into pg if you're so inclined
ben_vulpes: decimation: i'm finally seeing the tide receed from mongo's highwater
ben_vulpes: recede
decimation: yeah, there are situations where 'nosql' is appropriate, but plenty of situations where you want structured queries too
ben_vulpes: no man
ben_vulpes: i've yet to see the real world problem that a nosql db was actually the right solution to that wasn't actually a cacheing/cdn problem
ben_vulpes: (and even that can be handled by mother postgres at rather high efficiencies these days)
decimation: the only situation I can imagine is if you have a gigantic pile of disorganized data, that probably has a structure
decimation: nosql can be used to sort through your shit into a proper db
decimation: or if you are trying to be google
ben_vulpes: dude if it has a hint of structure it belongs in a relational db
ben_vulpes: otherwise you're going to start running the kind of braindamaged queries your 'nosql' layer support and then glomming it all together into something representing a query in application code
decimation: well, yeah that's the real-world situation.
ben_vulpes: much like any c project eventually grows a miserable half-assed implementation of an eighth of common lisp any nosql project eventually tries to implement relational alggebra
decimation: I'm suggesting an intermediate step where you query your nosql db properly and place the results into a structured relational db
decimation: but yeah I bet most people using 'nosql' just want caches
ben_vulpes: and because none of them were designed for that in the first place because a) it's hard and b) fucking retards write nosql stores for hackernooz points the algebraic layer turns out to never actually work. or it locks everything up while running queries that a real db would plan handle like a boss

decimation: ^ also note most people are unwilling to pay for something who knows how to db

ben_vulpes: man you can get a sql user (not an expert, mind you, but someone who understands it has used it and can avoid common retardations) at half time for approximately half the cost of some hotshit "full stack developer" who thinks mongo's a good idea
ben_vulpes: you'll spend less, they'll work less, and your systems will be vastly better for not having mongo in them
decimation: I would pay more for someone who didn't know how to program 'front-end'

ascii_field: if i'm not paid enough to 'reallocate capital' - to borrow mircea's terminology - than i am in same category as the 'room & board' folks
pete_dushenski: trinque: most certainly. sounds like a swell idea to me.
funkenstein_: Room and board are limited resources. Dorrars, not so much. Countereiters don't control food and bedding.
pete_dushenski: ascii_field: you buying a case of z80s or pogos is reallocating capital
pete_dushenski: however minor
ascii_field: pete_dushenski: capital in the sense of machine-that-lets-you-eat-without-working
ascii_field: not in the sense of my shoes
ascii_field: and shirt
pete_dushenski: ascii_field: this comes back again to the amount of $$$ you imagine is needed to 'eat like king'
pete_dushenski: funkenstein_: to the extent that the federal reserve is a counterfeiter, they most certainly control food (monsanto) and bedding (housing bubble)
funkenstein_: only in so much as farmers and homeowners accept their counterfeits

shinohai: @ mod6 I think I should start with a bare build. the other one is fine, son't want to touch it xD
shinohai: *don't
mircea_popescu: ascii_field in practice this may not be a problem. the gavincoin insanities aside, growing by 300 bytes every ten minutes may well be sustainable indefinitely into the future.
mircea_popescu: i suspek computing is moving towards joint ram/disk anyway.
mod6: yeah, that's what i was saying before: leave your v0.5.3.1-RELEASE as-is. Then setup a new environment to give the "stator" build a try -- is pre-patched, so should be able to compile and run, or if your slightly more daring, just run the included pre-compiled (by alf) binary (ensure to check sigs first!)
shinohai: kk but the whole reason I want to do this is so I can try the new patches by ascii_field, the blockdump
mod6: sure, ok. so what we'll need to do (and even I haven't tried patching those in myself yet) is to extract the stator, then apply the patches.
mats: that'll be interesting when the dichotomy vanishes. linux has been adding support for persistent memory afaik
mats: 'pramfs' looked furthest along when i last checked

mats: nothing merged so far though

(must read emails to figure out the deps, OR you can just build the stator which includes all of alf's patches with exception of dumpblock & eatblock), those must be patched post extraction of the stator tarball -- of which im actually testing now.

shinohai: I'm almost @ block 200000
mod6: good deal!
shinohai: Then when I get this new build up, I can sync up to the correct nodes, and .torrent dat chain.
phf: mod6: i don't necessarily have problems, i have a bitcoind with all the patches up to eatblock (haven't looked at stator yet, but then i'm building with enemy tools). the way i assembled patches is by reading through web archive and saving/verifying each patch as i saw it
mod6: ahhh
mod6: can you point me to the web-archive you're using? just curious.
phf: the process was needlessly complicated since my mail client lets me do a bunch of those steps (patching, gpg verifying, etc) with a single key, so if i had an mbox, i could just import it, and then use a more familiar interface

funkenstein_: "southern pride" spamming qntra in an effort to discredit the site methinks
phf: mod6: well, lets say you have something like mutt open with the current email. it's pretty easy to write a script that takes current email and feeds it to an external script, that splits out patch, verifies it with the provided sig, and then applies it to the codebase (or pushes it into some queue of patches as a case may be). i.e. you read the email, push "p" to do everything for you, and then move on to the next email
mod6: ok, i like mutt :]
mod6: are you asking me to write an email client script?
mod6: basically, instead of me making a whole bunch of different one-off scripts for peoples seperate clients and whatever stack they've got, I just create one script that will patch in & verify all the scripts at once. usually after I've tried and tested them all myself, peronsally.
mod6: But I've only started scratching the surface with alf's latest, so this hasn't been done yet. All of these are still in my "Highly Experemental" category. AKA: use at your own risk.
phf: mod6: no, i'm asking you to provide an archive of raw messages as they were received and stored by mailman. something like this, but withtout attachments split into separate files
mod6: But as I get through more of these and test more of these, I'll put something together to make this process easier.

mod6: it should allow you to sync off of mp's blockchain w/the appropriate cmdline params and then do dumpblock/eatblock when it's finished or whatever you like.
shinohai: awesum
mod6: !up ascii_field
mod6: :]
jurov: <trinque> jurov: could the btc-dev mailing list send mail via tls? ok, considered
ascii_field: mod6: waitasec, that's a valid build
ascii_field: but didn't you say 'barfed' ?
mod6: when?
trinque: jurov: ty
jurov: <mod6> one of the things that pains me with the SHA1s re-written into the filenames, is if you pull these files with curl, you have to rename them to their original names before you can verify the signatures. << good point
ascii_field: mod6: ah no, that was trinque
assbot: Logged on 03-07-2015 20:09:32; trinque: ascii_field: got a barf about fPIC in boost, which iirc is already known
trinque: yar, rebuilding now
mod6: ascii_field: i did have a problem with it a number of days ago when I first tried it, but it was just an environment related issue. this build, I literally just did it, worked fine.
mod6: ah ok
trinque: I wanna do some gcov work this weekend
mod6: and trinque, did you hvae that -fPIC issue on gentoo with uClibC? that's the same error I was talking about all last month and in the SoBA
trinque: yeah but this is glibc
trinque: my lappy
mod6: ah hmm
mod6: so phf brings to light a good point, reading through the email list, especially if you haven't read the b-a logs from oct-14 on is probably more than a bit hard to follow. ascii_field brings up a good point about having a 'family tree'
mod6: there are a number of different directions these emails go in; patching for v0.5.3.1, pogotronic, gentoo, etc, etc. so I'll try my best to make this apparent when I write up a patch list, etc.
mod6: i'm not sure what to do about this as far as the email list is concerened, yet.
ascii_field: mod6: i kinda assumed you and ben_vulpes would roll the patch sequence docs into releases
ascii_field: (iirc this was the case in 5.3.1 actually)
mod6: yah. we would certainly put all the patches applied to a specific baseline into RELEASE_NOTES.txt as it was for v0.5.3.1
jurov: phf, if you can make better patchlist, are you willing to contribute your script?
shinohai: That would be the easiest, releases
mod6: but pre-milestone release, it does get hard to follow. and since I do believe it'll still be some time before we get the next milestone cut, I should prepare some sort of document so individuals can help test. (we very much appreciate the enthusiasm and the help!)
shinohai: I have little better that piques the imagination
mod6: anyway, we'll get there.
mod6: a wise man told me once: life is short and art is long.

phf: jurov: i don't think there's complete understanding as to what should go into patchlist yet. the one we have now is fine, and i'm sure it will be improved
phf: i was actually taking a harder position, if somebody wants to follow along they should read the mailing list from the beginning, and having it all accessible in one place for offline reading helps
mod6: and really, if you wanna follow along, it helps to have the historical timeline 'in head' as well by reading the logs since last October.

shinohai: * Herbert Hoover and his wife also spoke Mandarin, so what?
decimation: they generally come from wester africa
mircea_popescu: decimation i am broadly unconvinced the concept of ethnicity makes any sense in africa.
mircea_popescu: the french just started using it cca 1800 as if, and nobody really discussed the matter.

decimation: well, my point is that obama is from the Luo people
mircea_popescu never bothered with it, but is this luo people an internal or an external identity ?
assbot: Luo people of Kenya and Tanzania - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia ... ( )
mircea_popescu: ie, is it equivalent to saying "one of the terrorist people" or to "one of the lordship" ?

Outside Luoland, the Luo comprise a significant fraction of East Africa's intellectual and skilled labour force in various professions.

mircea_popescu: shinohai aha cool then. no spurts or weird disconnects or anything ?
ascii_field believes that we already have pretty large blocks
decimation: go to and watch the waterfall of txns
mircea_popescu: ascii_field get a load of this : three days of random, odd internet behaviour, discussed here publicly, which then went away by itself. i did nothing to the server, i asssume neither did you.
mircea_popescu: what is this magic /
shinohai: No, mircea_popescu it has actually been faster than when I previously synced, less memory footprint ramwise
mircea_popescu: i would expect a stuttering engine to go on stuttering until discarded.
kakobrekla: the truth be this or that, if the majority of miners takes up big blocks pogos and company is phucked
decimation: maybe it was the work of the volunteer diggers in san francisco
mircea_popescu: kakobrekla i welcome the verification of this theory in the field.
decimation: kakobrekla: that's why the reference implementation ought to be written to appeal to miners
mats: yes, a model with 8mb and 20mb blocks would be interesting
mircea_popescu: i imagine so would you : a bankrupt field of miners best chance to buy cheap mining rigs for a long time
mircea_popescu: but in any case : money talks. not "power rangers" and not the 0.3% ROI miners. and if moneys says fuck you everyone goes home and tries something else for next year's costume party.
decimation: kakobrekla: it's not as stupid as it sounds
decimation: what miners want to deal with bitcoind correctness

mircea_popescu: kakobrekla that's fine. they also have to make money somehow.
decimation: kakobrekla: exactly, which is why they would use whatever other people say is good
mircea_popescu: and that somehow is by selling what they mine.
mircea_popescu: so yes, zombies. just, make sure you identify the necromancer driving them correctly
kakobrekla: they are getting spammed with 'bitcoin upgrades' as we speak
kakobrekla: my guess is most wont have a second thought.
decimation: exactly, so if they have brains this will wake them up to 'wtf is going on with bitcoind'
mircea_popescu: and the same people will be selling the farm three to six months down the road.

mircea_popescu: the mass slaughter of a large contingent of people who act as if "doing what everyone else does is safe", and who lose millions at it is the best thing that can happen.
kakobrekla: i cant have blockchain dead for a month
mircea_popescu: a shining moment of "buying ibm gets you killed" is more valuable than asia.

mod6: punkman: you may want the kills_integer_retardation in there, as well as nubs`'s gentoo sanity, at least the part with the copying over of the headers & libs in check those out here:
mod6: and here:
mircea_popescu: last i heard davout was looking for ways to programatically exploit the shitcoin
decimation: kakobrekla: what do you mean about 'having blockchain dead'
kakobrekla: having a chain with a gazillion difficulty and no to little miners on it
decimation: I find the probability of that happening to be very low
kakobrekla: the switch happens when there is 90% of miners on the new chain (determined by checking last n blocks rolling window)
kakobrekla: when this happens there already is such condition as i described give or take
kakobrekla: and the even bringing that percentage even higher as some give up.

mircea_popescu: kakobrekla a loss of 90% mining power relates to blocks taking a little over an hour, not a month.

mircea_popescu: this is why miners are NOT actually seated at the table.
mod6: <+trinque> suggests it's maybe a matter of the hardened toolchain eh? << yeah, i think this is a clue
mircea_popescu: their job begins and ends with rejecting bad blocks. they are in no way involved in deciding what that means.
mircea_popescu: exactly as it should be, incidentally.
kakobrekla: 90% < thats just the breaking point. once they figure out they have no wehre to send those coins short of mpex, those will be gone too.

asciilifeform: it is part of the protocol

decimation: for the headers thing, I'm imagining a scenario where someone is waiting for a transaction to clear

asciilifeform: what's wrong with the old-fashioned 'inv' ?
decimation: I suppose if a peer is available, you could do that. but then you are only trusting one node's say

asciilifeform: and botched horribly

decimation: although you would give up on fees
asciilifeform: given the merkle tree thing, tx's don't really add to the load
