jurov: shiffing, yes.
jurov: *sniffing
jurov: but actively intercepting and replacing individual packets is much more complicated effort
jurov: so far only china managed that with any degree of success
BingoBoingo: shinohai: If you must link to reddit no np.reddit links, for they are a trap to preserve their platform
jurov: and it needs so much manpower that someone from "terrorist-packets-on-backbone-diddling-dept." would already spill the beans
shinohai: I fergotI forgot i was laughing so hard BingoBoingo
shinohai: It is EXACTLY like them
jurov: say, let's put or google's addy among there and make the occassional packet look like systemd or windows emit
jurov: what is usg to do? risk diddling time on throngs of linux/windows machines?

jurov: how do you know ntp is from the bitcoin node and not from other machine on the same network?
asciilifeform: naturally, you don't

assbot: Logged on 20-02-2015 03:34:05; mircea_popescu: In addition, anti-fascism was never to have as cheap as today. Previously, he could cost you your life, today it costs no more than lip service among peers - and heard to this, the exclusive circle of the upright, decent, brave. The fighters against law form the peerage of enlightened society. Or even a shot polemical: Here is an indulgence trade takes place; the moral superiority can be acquired sim
asciilifeform: i can envision other scenarios
jurov: so, instruct chumps "scream if you notice weird time"
asciilifeform: we launch the pogos, and suddenly 'ntp is obsolete, dontchaknow,' here is a new replacement by poettering, 85% consensus1111!!!1111!!! within weeks, plug pulled on ntp servers
decimation: asciilifeform: read the description of room 641a
assbot: Room 641A - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia ... ( )
asciilifeform: jurov: idea is that no one will 'notice weird time', nodes will just silently drift off the network
decimation: reportedly it was a passive beam splitter
decimation: how you gonna delay packets with that
asciilifeform: decimation: i can't comment on what's in the other '641a's.
asciilifeform: or for that matter, in the original
asciilifeform: (today, that is)
jurov: asciilifeform: and my idea is that pogos will be together with other computers behind the NAT
jurov: and these other computers can server as canary, users *do* notice time off by hour

asciilifeform: jurov: gotta understand, my allergy to ntp is more of a 'reason from causes, not from purposes'-theorem application
asciilifeform: than dread of a specific boojum
jurov: if it is not specific, how it can be a cause?
asciilifeform: i believe that it is wrong for a large network of bitcoin nodes to depend on a usg institution.
asciilifeform: i am only dreaming up specifics because asked to
asciilifeform: since everybody seems to insist on doing mental gymnastics to come to peace with using ntp
jurov: and i keep telling you they already do cuz internet *is* usg institution
asciilifeform: once 'gossip' is running, the only thing enemy will be able to do is pull plugs
jurov: jam tomorrow
asciilifeform: so in that sense it is 'usg institution' in exactly the way my house, and my earthly carcass, are
asciilifeform: jurov: the particular example, 'gossip', ~is~ jam tomorrow, yes. but it is possible to run encrypted tunnels of various sorts even today.
asciilifeform: enemy is stuck pulling plugs.
asciilifeform: ntp, on other hand, is a pants-down unauthenticated plaintext (for reasons explained previously, this cannot really be helped)
jurov: we're stuck with ntp since you rejected everything other short of bitcoin reimplementation
jurov: if we agree to ship with pogos also 100 of authed ntp servers, I'm all for it
asciilifeform: jurov: probably
jurov: (provide, i mean)
asciilifeform: gotta think of a way to sanity-check it
jurov: just that in your scenario of hostile isp and everything, they will be yet more easy to block than
asciilifeform: hence sanity-check rather than reliance
jurov: aha
asciilifeform: i've also thought about personally retrofitting the pogos with the crystals
asciilifeform: (it also needs a capacitor or li battery on the power input to the rtc)
asciilifeform: could probably do several hundred in a weekend, if they were sent to me disassembled
asciilifeform: i also learned last night that chinese rtc modules, complete with battery, are about fifty cents in quantity
asciilifeform: can be attached to the gpio in pogo
asciilifeform: these clocks would still have to be ~set~, but it can be done en masse, once.
decimation: it could be altuh
decimation: sorry tmux died
asciilifeform: incidentally, if anybody feels up to falling on this grenade with me, please speak up
decimation: asciilifeform: are there specs for the rtc modules? specifically thermal stability?
asciilifeform: decimation: not afaik. probably best to assume the worst.
asciilifeform: but overall i'm much less allergic to the idea of letting ntp adjust a running clock by a percent now and then
asciilifeform: than straight intravenous injection from ntp into a machine with no clock to speak of
lobbes: heh, we need a b-a factory.
asciilifeform: lobbes: we don't even have a b-a restaurant yet.

mircea_popescu: thestringpuller yeawell...
asciilifeform: punkman: lulziez!
asciilifeform: why is anyone using that thing again...?
mircea_popescu: because bitcoin uses it
asciilifeform: not the cert crud
mircea_popescu: people don't know. "openssl" right ?
mircea_popescu: "During certificate verification, OpenSSL (starting from version 1.0.1n and 1.0.2b) will attempt to find an alternative certificate chain if the first attempt to build such a chain fails. An error in the implementation of this logic can mean that an attacker could cause certain checks on untrusted certificates to be bypassed, such as the CA flag, enabling them to use a valid leaf certificate to act as a CA and "issue"
mircea_popescu: an invalid certificate."
asciilifeform: (though it's been a while since i looked at the turdation's tree - perhaps they do ?)
mircea_popescu: and yet, "we do not feel compelled to denounce the person who added this hole in our codebase, and call for a boycott from everyone on it against their sorry ass. because, fundamentally... it's us."
asciilifeform: who else.
asciilifeform: not martians, no.
mircea_popescu: "As per our previous announcements and our Release Strategy (, support for OpenSSL versions 1.0.0 and 0.9.8 will cease on 31st December 2015. No security updates for these releases will be provided after that date. Users of these releases are advised to upgrade."
mircea_popescu: non sequitur prize of the year.
mircea_popescu: "we will stop deliberately adding holes to these versions aftyer this date, and you are please asked to upgrade because we won't be sending patches a quarter afterwards, either"
mircea_popescu: that way, you won't need "security patches" in the first place.

shinohai: got email
asciilifeform: 'brother can you spare a dime'
asciilifeform: (tm) (r)
decimation: asciilifeform: < hi-spec part
decimation: unlike alot of the other rtcs, the crystal is on-chip and temp compensated
mircea_popescu: that's a spiffy clock.
decimation: my reading of the spec sheet is that combined aging and temperature stability (assuming 0-40C) would be about 8.5 ppm
decimation: which means about 4.5 minutes per year
decimation: for 10 years
mircea_popescu: yeah it's good for a decade, since we have ~2 hours to spare
decimation: likely, the cr1203 battery wouldn't last that log
mircea_popescu: you'd be surprised. those damned things... i've had one for a decade.
asciilifeform: i have a 15 yr-old one that's still going
asciilifeform: and i've had ones die after <5
decimation: but as you can see it isn't cheap, the chip is about $9 in single quantity and about $4 in units of 1000
asciilifeform: 'your mileage may vary'
mircea_popescu: yeah. like hdds : either dead in six months or good forever.
mircea_popescu: like humans, actually. either die as a youthful ape, or else get cancer, or else... age 150
asciilifeform: decimation: the thing you linked to costs more than pogo...
decimation: I know :(
asciilifeform: may as well suggest atomic
shinohai: I got a really old SATA with debian wheezy on it
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform it's still a very good clock by the looks of it.
decimation: unfortunately the really cheap ($1) rtcs available do not come with specs, it would be interesting to know what they are
asciilifeform: probably better than most pc mobos
decimation: yes, it certainly is
mircea_popescu: definitely.
decimation: also I'm not sure if pogo has i2c bus
mircea_popescu: iirc - no.
asciilifeform: l0l i think ~it~ is on my mobo
asciilifeform: the very same
mircea_popescu: maybe on the better ones
asciilifeform: highest end amd mobo of ~8 yrs ago
decimation: asciilifeform: you can configure ntp to ignore the network and use RTC
mircea_popescu: i don't expect technologee changed these much since the 90s
asciilifeform: decimation: what good does that do ?
decimation: you set rtc, usg doesn't set your clock?
asciilifeform: then why ntp
mircea_popescu: he doesn't want to set anything
decimation: to discipline the kernel timebase
mircea_popescu: he just wants things to do shit!
decimation: likely the rtc has a more stable clock than the 2ghz clock that runs your cpu
asciilifeform: decimation: and can't do this without a proggy that opens sockets ?
asciilifeform: why the fuck not ?
mircea_popescu: moar unpnp ? :D
decimation: well, the advantage that ntp brings is the long-term PLL that gently corrects
decimation: but you could periodically bang the clock
asciilifeform: decimation: i'd have bitcoind snarf time straight from the rtc chip
asciilifeform: why the ceremonies.
decimation: in the case of bitcoind that would work
decimation: for other applications moving the clock around might make them sad
asciilifeform: there are no other proggies on pogo
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform you ready for the will/intelligence discussion ?
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: fire away
decimation back to mines
mircea_popescu: me ? you're the one to fire. you proposed pink shapeless.
mircea_popescu: o incidentally. that article ^ prolly interests you
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: well, the impression i get is that you think 'will' is a scalar
asciilifeform: will is not a scalar. perelman has will, mircea_popescu has will, i have will, and napoleon had will, and comparing magnitudes alone is rank nonsense
mircea_popescu: but that's not where the problem lies. the problem lies at the spot where you propose there exists an "intelligence" that nevertheless does not have control of the processor.
mircea_popescu: if one is purportedly intelligent, how is it then that his brain does not work intelligently ?
asciilifeform: intelligence is 'car,' will is 'driver'
mircea_popescu: then intelligence is no sort of intelligence at all.
mircea_popescu: i dub it "derp" and rename your will intelligence.
asciilifeform: driver sans car sits and makes 'vroom, vroom' noises; car without driver - sits, rusts.
mircea_popescu: for this is the definition of intellectual faculty : the driver.
mircea_popescu: everything else, muscle power.
mircea_popescu: and yes, redditards are not necessarily unintelligent in the sense of derp.
mircea_popescu: they're actually very derpy.
mircea_popescu: problem is they're dumb as rocks, is all.
asciilifeform: other thing is that the meat brain is not a von neumann machine, and has specific circuits for certain problems. it is possible to walk around with those damaged and others - functional
mircea_popescu: so is a guy paralised on half his body half an athlete ?
asciilifeform: if he's an arm wrestling champ !
asciilifeform: and has his working arm.
mircea_popescu: kinda why arm wrestling is not athletics :)
mircea_popescu: in any case, weren't you bravely accusing ME of viewing things as scalars ?
mircea_popescu: how come they're now divisible with 2.
funkenstein_: there is a special space in the hilbert space of stupidity for those who think intelligence can be well described with a scalar
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: my contention was that you describe will as a spectrum, perhaps between 'spineless clerk' and 'napoleon'
mircea_popescu: i dun think i do.
mircea_popescu: there is an ennumerable list of people by their intelligence. this usually reduces to sorting them by score
asciilifeform: whereas i contend that it is possible to be 'napoleon' with theorems and 'spineless piece of shit' with girlz
mircea_popescu: and that score is how much money they have.
asciilifeform: or vice-versa
mircea_popescu: only if one WANTS TO
funkenstein_: i have found fiat wealth correlates linearly with a broad integral of stupidity
asciilifeform: well that'd be a kind of perverse but technically correct definition of 'will'
mircea_popescu: "oh it can be the case i can lift rocks but not railroad metal"
asciilifeform: how strong is your 'want muscle'
asciilifeform: it's more of a 'i can lift rocks but not porcupines'
mircea_popescu: inasmuch as they both exist, they both exist. inasmuch as the one you're good at doesn't exist, you're basically wanking.
asciilifeform confused
mircea_popescu: the curse of existence is that it is approachable. just like a tool has its uses, irrespective of a maker's intention.
mircea_popescu: everything that is, is. which has some effects.
asciilifeform: which is the item mircea_popescu is describing as not existing? and which - not ?
mircea_popescu: i am doing no such thing.
mircea_popescu: i am merely pointing out that if both things you discuss exist, then both necessarily, by definition of existence, are approachable.
mircea_popescu: this is traditonally pointed out to the shy young male as "you know, even the lady of your heart farts"
mircea_popescu: or whatever, your hero also bleeds, there's a lengthy cultural history of this idealisation problem.
asciilifeform: proof of twin-primes conjecture is also 'approachable' by this token
asciilifeform: in that it is sitting 'there' to be dug up
mircea_popescu: only if it exists :)
mircea_popescu: which atm we do not know.
asciilifeform: it is possible that it does not exist
mircea_popescu: but if it does exist, then yes, it will necessarily be found eventually.
asciilifeform: better example - pluto
asciilifeform: we know where it sits
asciilifeform: come, get.
mircea_popescu: get what ?
asciilifeform: a piece of pluto.
mircea_popescu: so you are saying mining pluto is an impossibility.
mircea_popescu: and why not ceres ? she's just as big!
mircea_popescu: nobody ever thinks of ceres.
asciilifeform: not impossible, but not strictly a matter of 'wanting to' either
mircea_popescu: and if it were the case the commercial value of piece of pluto ten times exceeded the commercial cost of sending miner ?
mircea_popescu: it'd be mined next week.
mircea_popescu: so no, we currently do not wish to, is all.
asciilifeform: this is logical, but for some reason this scenario did not play out re: bitcoin asics
mircea_popescu: how do you mean ?
asciilifeform: (afaik, there are still no true asics!)
mircea_popescu: too low margins
mircea_popescu: do the math, sometime. a miner earns 0.2% or some shit.
asciilifeform: partly this is on account of using 'hardcopy fpga'
mircea_popescu: currently foundries are working on .9%
asciilifeform: which is 100% of what is presently sold as 'btcasic'
mircea_popescu: of course, sold != deployed, but the error isn't great.
asciilifeform: partly this is on account of the derpitude of keeping them all in a warehouse, rather than having chumps pay for power
asciilifeform: (as discussed in 2013 here)
mircea_popescu: they are kept in warehouse for same reasdon you want untouched pogo
asciilifeform: but that 0.2% is made of a long list of bad decisions
mircea_popescu: people have this fixed idea that getting others involved is the worst play.
mircea_popescu: it isn't the worst play, but hard to get the notion through.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform yes. chief among them, a poor handling of cooperation.
asciilifeform: think of what just one backroom cocksucking deal with a major microcontroller maker to include hidden miner would have been worth.
mircea_popescu: ~nothing much
asciilifeform: what's the logic here?
mircea_popescu: hard to explain, but i will give the anecdotic.
mircea_popescu: i am not unaware of this possibility, yet i apparently discounted it, preferring a divergent approach. maybe i'm just that dumb.
asciilifeform: (that the hidden boojum would not stay hidden, is a no-brainer. idea would be to exploit the first-mover advantage, naturally)
mircea_popescu: shitty thing to build a life of.
mircea_popescu: you want last-mover advantage. if you can get it.
asciilifeform: life of miner is a life of a soldier, disposable, as mircea_popescu reminded us last night
mircea_popescu: what else has first mover advantage ? making a bitcoin foundation ?
mircea_popescu: they lost.
asciilifeform: there is a whole array of strange things that miner builders do, which puzzle me greatly
mircea_popescu: o, wait, that schmucky chick. what was it, chamber of buttsex ?
asciilifeform: i'll name just one (because i am not in the business of handing out free advice to derpatronicists) -
asciilifeform: why the fuck does 'as much has as possible' have to be packed in one die ?
asciilifeform: creates the heat nightmare
mircea_popescu: !up cosmo
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform they're just going through the motions. they don't really know what they're doing, nobodyu sat dowqn and thought things through.
asciilifeform: and it isn't like ten dies would take up unpalatable floor space
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu has it
mircea_popescu: the packing thing is a result of the consumer electronics market
mircea_popescu: they don't understand that if you sell for yourself, and not to put in a desktop, you have diff engineering constraints
asciilifeform: so what i'm saying is, pluto is sitting there, made of priceless unobtainium, and schmucks are schmucking around
mircea_popescu: actually more floor space = better for a short interval at the place they're now.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform and at some point, america teemed with fucktarded savages and nobody came to kill the males and rape the females.
mircea_popescu: sure, nobody did.
mircea_popescu: for... a little bit.
mircea_popescu: and ... nobody will ever again.
mircea_popescu: for... hm. for EVER AND EVER THIS TIME!!11
asciilifeform: 8k years was 'a little bit' ?
asciilifeform: i suppose - geologically...
mircea_popescu: iirc the vikings did a little recuntissance
asciilifeform: recuntissance by fire (tm)
asciilifeform: back to the miners, i say that if money were the handy iq test mircea_popescu suggests it is, this kind of situation would be quite impossible.
mircea_popescu: funkenstein_ << that's basically the ideology of butthurt.
mircea_popescu: it is drastically unwise to imagine a certificate of intelligence as a sort of consolation prize.
funkenstein_: the point at which Americas so teemed began in 1600 or so
mircea_popescu: that's what late empire matrons tell their effette offspring that just lost at the races to the hearty barbarians : "don
mircea_popescu: 't woprry honey, they're stupid"
mircea_popescu: they're not so stupid, and the measure of their superior intelligence is to be found in the joyous cries of the noble roman's girlfriend.
funkenstein_: it's not a question of "don't worry" .. actually, we should be worried
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform no. improbable, which all reality ever is.
mircea_popescu: not impossible, nor long of this world.
asciilifeform: there very much ~is~ such a thing as 'stupid and effective'
asciilifeform: such as the bacteria that eventually eat everybody's girlfriend
mircea_popescu: like how would that be ?
asciilifeform: (along with anyone else)
mircea_popescu: is gcd stupid but effective ?
funkenstein_: the reason wealth is often correlated with dumb is probably similar to why gps ownership is correlated with poor navigation skills
mircea_popescu: funkenstein_ such as in sattelites and missiles ?
mircea_popescu: i propose that gcd is one of the few smart things we know.
mircea_popescu: it is smart enough to be the END of a class.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: didja know that paul erdos had a story about these ?
asciilifeform: this class.
asciilifeform: he liked to say that god had a book, containing the best possible proof of each theorem
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 9200 @ 0.00054405 = 5.0053 BTC [-]
asciilifeform: highest compliment paul e. could give a colleague was to say 'this is from The Book'
mircea_popescu: ahaha not bad.
asciilifeform: hence 'end of a class'
mircea_popescu: makes sense, dunnit ? even without being jewish.
asciilifeform: it is actually a very rare thing
asciilifeform: (being able to prove that you can't do better runtime than particular algo, say)
asciilifeform: however, there are still interesting boojums:
funkenstein_: see e.g. the god algorithm for cube solving
asciilifeform: romans could very well have 'proved' that their arithmetic is 'optimal'
asciilifeform: while being entirely wrong by our lights
mircea_popescu: even gods bite it eventually.
asciilifeform: because 'notation is worth 80 iq'
mircea_popescu: kinda why i do not actually regret golden antiquity.
mircea_popescu: had a good run, but it did run its course.
mircea_popescu: and so it came to pass zeus eventually ran out of book.
asciilifeform: everybody eventually runs out of book.
mircea_popescu: for my curiosity, how'd such a roman proof look like ?
mircea_popescu: i don't readily see it.
mircea_popescu: (but this is perhaps the most obscure field of all scholarship - constructive cultural antrhopology, which is to say : construct FUTURE development of science on the basis and with the methods available in X context.
mircea_popescu: a superlative form of hermeneutics if you wish. certainly decent training exercise for the more advanced students.
asciilifeform: this is normally where 'alt history' storytellers fail, yes
asciilifeform: 'show me nazi internet' (mr mold)
mircea_popescu: even the most cursory effort to consider the matter sunks people like orlov.
mircea_popescu: it should be standard class in disinfo ministry, but hey. they're also saving these days.
asciilifeform: sometimes the 'construct future with past' thing gets taken up and run ragged, though. as in the case of 'square the circle with ruler and compass' problem that drove folks batshit until 19th c even.
asciilifeform: and there are still legions of crackpots trying to prove ftl with what they studied in school.

mircea_popescu visited one such thing, in costa rica. it is the closest i ever got to a medieval hospital.

asciilifeform: ~88 cent

asciilifeform: what i wonder is where these are typically used.
asciilifeform: they are produced, and apparently sold, in vast quantities.
asciilifeform: clearly ~somebody~ isn't eager to use ntp for everything.
asciilifeform: where do these little modules go? toasters? time bombs in afghan ?
decimation: asciilifeform: yeah DS3231 is the older version of the same chip that doesn't have any onboard sram
decimation: would work fine
decimation: I think the 3231 is end of life, probably trying to ditch stock
decimation: asciilifeform: I think at least one use is utility meters
decimation: any case where you have a cheap sensor that you 'launch'
asciilifeform: sram could be useful, to keep 'last seeds' in or whatnot. but entirely luxury.
decimation: oh they also use them in gps receivers
decimation: for 'cold start'

mircea_popescu: usually how these things go
mircea_popescu: you want an acct too ?
williamdunne: mircea_popescu: Well, IIRC it wasn't flash directly, but for some retarded reason they thought it'd be a good idea to reverse engineer the flash format so you'd do some coding and the design in adobe flash
williamdunne: So the process was create frames in Photoshop, import to flash, add some actioncrap, and then export to scaleform

SuchWow: shinohai: dogecoin is just what got me into crypo in dec 2013, i then daytraded btc/usc (and occasionally alts, plus a small mining venture) from Jan-July '13, and have been back to just working a day job for the last year or so
SuchWow: i still find it fun and useful to keep a close eye on cryptos daily
SuchWow: that 'future' gonna be here quicker than we know it :)
ben_vulpes: > fun
ben_vulpes: nothing is fun
ben_vulpes: arbeith macht frei
ben_vulpes: <BingoBoingo> As far as I can tell time does not exist other than as a projection perpetrated by the brain << hear hear
ben_vulpes: but it's not so much the brain as the necessity of linearization of memory for things that travel along a 3-brane

ben_vulpes: a lol is a "line of log", SuchWow.
SuchWow: whereas the speed of lol is somehow inversely proportional to the speed of gossip on the interent or some such
SuchWow: or that would work to
ben_vulpes: gossip is already a reserved term, sorry.

ben_vulpes: fucking register.
ben_vulpes: shinohai: you up him again...
ben_vulpes: I KEEL U
SuchWow: this is irc lol
SuchWow: i will not register with anything for the ability to speak in an irc chan
SuchWow: it's just ludicrous imo
SuchWow: exercise basic chan mgmt :)
SuchWow: i opped #dogecoin for 18 months
SuchWow: it *can* be done lol
shinohai: ludicrous how? to verify your identity securely?
SuchWow: i regged with nickserv
SuchWow: that's plenty
shinohai dogecoin is a scam
SuchWow: i haven't paid attention to dogecoin in the longest time

BingoBoingo: More than doubled in size
SuchWow: i think dogecoin is mainly just investor speculation at this point, and obviously several very large investors from early on and probably throughout
SuchWow: the community has shrunk almost as exponentially as it grew over the last year
SuchWow: but i don't think this chan is about that kind of stuff?
SuchWow: everytime i talk here, you all start bring up dogecoin - for the record, it has never once been me.
shinohai: > but i don't think this chan is about that kind of stuff?

mod6: So I was stuck on block: 363734, then updated time, restarted bitcoind, now seem be be stuck on 363736 for >24 hours.
asciilifeform: mod6: who are you peered with ?
mod6: mp
asciilifeform: he's wedged iirc !
asciilifeform: stop peering with him until he unwedges
asciilifeform: betcha his clock is off too.
mod6: ok, i had thought that I read somewhere that he said he was gonna let it be until he could examine the fork closer. I never could find it in the log though. Thought maybe I imagined it.
asciilifeform: and apparently letting it be didn't unwedge it
mod6: ah.
asciilifeform: dollars to doughnuts his clock is off.
asciilifeform: like mine was.
mod6: mine was 25 seconds behind or something.
asciilifeform: that's not enough to wedge
mod6: hrm. maybe im misinterpreted the output
mod6: anyway, it might not be a bad time for me to stop it now anyway, and break off to try some other things. I wanna test build stator on gentoo.
asciilifeform: its natural habitat!
asciilifeform: test, test.
mod6: I see that nubs' gentoo sanity patch isn't applied, wanna get some testing in there. I'm putting a guide together so someone can patch by hand if they like.
asciilifeform: i never needed that one
asciilifeform: to run on my gentoos
asciilifeform: so i never applied it

mod6: in particular, this test will be with vanilla gcc (glibc) and not uclibc. With uclibc, I had to do some extra tweaks:
assbot: Logged on 11-06-2015 02:57:07; mod6: no, those where in there from the beginning. i ended up adding ``#define __STDC_LIMIT_MACROS'' with ``#include <stdint.h>'' to net.cpp, util.cpp and wallet.cpp and then is ok.
asciilifeform: i thought nobody got anywhere with uclibc ... ?
mod6: well, no, never did link for me properly
asciilifeform: anyone try musl yet ?
mod6: but these problems arose during compiliation. and once the above was applied, was seemingly resolved.

mod6: haven't tried musl yet no.
mod6: it's on the list.
mod6: heh, it's a long list. :]
asciilifeform: williamdunne: l0l!
mod6: i'll get there though.
williamdunne: asciilifeform: Wonder how many times it was used
williamdunne: Looks like that feature was created at the request of the Italian gov mabbeh
mod6: williamdunne: did you get setup in euloraland?
williamdunne: mod6: Ish, I did all the beginner stuff, and then died
mircea_popescu: mined anything ?
williamdunne: mircea_popescu: No, dieded. Then had some marketing work I figured I ought to be doing
williamdunne: To be continued
mircea_popescu: mod6 it won't go past that for a while.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: is your node still wedged ?
mircea_popescu: im sure it is.
asciilifeform: and clock ?

asciilifeform: not calendar

asciilifeform: does mircea_popescucoind keep logs ?
asciilifeform: anything re: rejected blocks in those
mircea_popescu: nah just spam txn rejected.
asciilifeform: that'd be most peculiar
asciilifeform: it would mean, if there is nothing peculiarly tight-lipped about mircea_popescucoind's logging mechanism, that no one has so much as tried throwing the recent blocks at it
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform so was the xemist guy nobody voiced actually al ?
asciilifeform: waitasec
asciilifeform: when was that
mircea_popescu: heh. paymoar attention
asciilifeform was... elsewhere
mircea_popescu: anyway, i shall be off playin
asciilifeform: come back, Xemist
asciilifeform sent him a mail with link to this logtime..
mod6: <+mircea_popescu> !up Xemist
mod6: he came here, was here for 5 minutes, was up'd while here, never said anything.
mod6: <+mircea_popescu> Xemist you wouldn't be al would you ?
mod6: no response to that either.
asciilifeform: mod6: netsplit ??
asciilifeform: i don't see this up
asciilifeform: or the convo
asciilifeform: OR he got ddosed
mod6: lemme check for split, and i'll paste the log.
asciilifeform: which is still a thing
asciilifeform: ;;later tell mircea_popescu when do we get the ddoser's head on a stick?

asciilifeform: i believe
asciilifeform: but ipso facto netsplit
mod6: check the log link I just posted above.
asciilifeform: mod6: apologies, i had the 10-7 page up
asciilifeform: yes, it's in there.
asciilifeform: gonna guess he got ddosed.
mod6: ah, ok. he came in from webchat, looks like to me.
asciilifeform: aha, iirc danielpbarron invited him to.
mod6: ah
asciilifeform: !up Vexual
asciilifeform: for completeness, i will also mention the possibility that we (or what al can see of us in his light-cone) didn't pass his bozo filter.
BingoBoingo: ^ recipe for adding flag to stator
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: methinks you left something out ?
asciilifeform: grep -i nMinRelayTxFee * | wc -l
BingoBoingo: Ah, wrong version
asciilifeform: what version was the patch for ?
BingoBoingo: stator. I mean wrong version of the revision, lemme pull up init.cpp and fix this
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: no reason to hurry
mod6: true. and perhaps use unified diff
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: i normally post patches after i read five times or so, and test them (to the point where 150,000+ blocks are pulled)
BingoBoingo: no idea what unified diff means
BingoBoingo: By yes, playing with this one first.
asciilifeform: there's a handy page on
mod6: asciilifeform is quicker on the draw than me tonight.
asciilifeform: congrats to BingoBoingo though, for taking the gloves off and going at the patch game
mod6: i just had that in hand.
mod6: yeah, thasnks BingoBoingo
mod6: anyway, that link is a bit old as it describes the directories as: bitcoin-bitcoin-a8def6b
mod6: but you'll get the general idea.
mod6: ask in here if you get stuck, but again, no rush.
BingoBoingo: Actual changes will look at actually submitting after more reading and testing and learning process
assbot: dpaste: 1Y0MG37 ... ( )
BingoBoingo: Surprised how little change this seems to take vs. 0.9 Bitcoin CORE implementation of flag
asciilifeform: wai didja just return printf("... ?
BingoBoingo: I know nothing better to do
asciilifeform: a few other nitpicks. the all-caps convention in bitcoind refers to constants
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: printf happens to return 1 (true) if it succeeded in printf-ing
asciilifeform: so you'd want to printf and then return false
asciilifeform: this is not seriously important in this case, but it follows 'unix philosophy' in the sense that a proggy returning false lets you use its failure as part of a shell script
asciilifeform: that's pretty much it.
asciilifeform: not a bad start BingoBoingo
asciilifeform: this patch is gonna be a first-class bitch to actually test though..
asciilifeform: really gotta write a proper node monitor
asciilifeform: (tx incoming, tx relayed, blocks...)
asciilifeform: ('incoming' in the network may-or-may-not-relay sense, rather than coins sense)
asciilifeform: oughta be able to watch the 'vital signs' of a node, if one wishes
asciilifeform: see forks with own eyes, pop open a block and scroll the tx, etc.
asciilifeform: anybody here likes programming for x11 ?
asciilifeform listens to the sound of silence
asciilifeform: ~another~ interesting scientific instrument would be a fly trap for invalid tx
asciilifeform: which would collect, in a zoo
asciilifeform: who is sending what kind of retarded tx, and why?
asciilifeform: how often - bad sig
asciilifeform: and how often is the latter a plausible result of bitrot
asciilifeform: how often is bad tx resulting from the use of some peculiar 'hearnia' ? (on my node - apparently, quite often)
BingoBoingo: So ever so slightly less shitty revision?
assbot: dpaste: 0SBAYB4 ... ( )
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: the return never happens
mod6: <+asciilifeform> see forks with own eyes, pop open a block and scroll the tx, etc. << ncurses instead of x11?
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: c n00b mistake. need else { ... ... }
asciilifeform: mod6: gonna be ugly
asciilifeform: mod6: could try
asciilifeform: i fucking hate ncurses-mouse proggies
BingoBoingo ptolly needs to practice C
asciilifeform: and not sure if there is a simple way to weasel out of using the rodent here
mod6: fair enough. i guess if it were me, it'd be great start to just dump the block txs to a file or STDOUT or something.
asciilifeform not ui specialist
asciilifeform: mod6: phf wrote a tx dumper
mod6: me either
mod6: really?
asciilifeform: see log
mod6 looks

assbot: Logged on 03-07-2015 17:50:03; phf: i was exploring block storage format, so i wrote some lisp code to read blocks out of .dat in sequence or directly from dumpblock'ed file i'm not sure where i'm going with it, so i'm leaving it here for interested parties.
BingoBoingo: It's only been a decade since I touched C++ source with anything other than delete key
mod6: thx ascii
mod6: oh yeah, i remember now.
mod6: i know exactly jack & squat about lisp
mod6: i'll have to give this a try sometime.
mod6: well, i guess i kinda got my toe wet with Nock.
mod6: anyway, another thing for the list :]
decimation: re: pci ocxo < yeah the ocxo is the metal case in the lower left
decimation: and yeah that cesium standard is cheap - suspiciously so. cesium only lasts so long.
asciilifeform: decimation: tube's good for ~decade
asciilifeform: decimation: that can looks like a normal quartz resonator
williamdunne: ..... this is a thing:
assbot: trevorlinton/webkit.js · GitHub ... ( )
asciilifeform: wai wat
asciilifeform: or rather, why??!!!
trinque: because his github picture is professionally shot
trinque: yet he wore a hoodie
trinque: but also a jacket, y'see
asciilifeform doesn't see a picture
decimation: nah ocxo often looks like a can
decimation: but admittedly I can't say for sure, and they do have versions of the card with tcxo
assbot: EEVblog #236 - FE-5680A Rubidium Standard Teardown | EEVblog - The Electronics Engineering Video Blog ... ( )
decimation: < this ocxo is as good as rubidium in terms of thermal stability
assbot: MTI-Milliren Technologies, Inc. ... ( )
decimation: and quartz typically has better phase noise than rb
decimation: but a new one will be >$500 in small qty
asciilifeform: what's the point of rb then
decimation: it does have slightly better aging
decimation: but a new rb is like $2.5k
decimation: note, these are well beyon pedestrian clocks, only for folks who 'need' less than miliseconds per year
asciilifeform always thought that a 'proper' computer oughta include a bnc jack for rb or cesiumfountain on front panel
asciilifeform: superceding the usual clock
asciilifeform: (for cpu and rtc both)
decimation: agreed
decimation: it's rediculous that doesn't exist actually
decimation: also the timing hardware available on typical x86 is usually shitty
decimation: asciilifeform: the thing that's odd is that this kind of feature isn't 'avaiable for any price'
decimation: at least on x86 servers
decimation: surely the market is nonzero
asciilifeform: on any machine i know o
asciilifeform: ... except for my biggest fpga board
decimation: I think I linked an sbc that folks modded for this
asciilifeform: it's got goldplated coax 'in's for clocking
asciilifeform: no less than 4 of'em
decimation: yeah that's typical for fpgas
decimation: because people use for actual hard timing specs
