jurov: one client that can be easily configured and relied on to keep body text intact, is kmail. maybe that's why kdepim shitgnome devs (reportedly) use thunderbird instead :D

punkman: jurov, well I assume turdatron didn't do this, so must be squirrel or something inbetween
jurov: and i assume turdatron did. so let's get rid of these assumptions, don the gloves and check what's there
jurov: it won't help me if you resend .tar.gz and forget
punkman: the attachments in my "sent" folder had stripped newlines
jurov: okay. so it's squirrelmail, thanks for info

asciilifeform: punkman: but, tell me this, what was the rationale for nuking the random rpc pw generator thing ?
punkman: asciilifeform: not particularly needed is it?
asciilifeform: imho it was precisely the correct thing. i don't use remote rpc, i don't give a fuck what the pw is so long as it can't be guessed
punkman: can put it back
asciilifeform: and i don't relish having to create it manually on every new machine
asciilifeform: punkman: well, not necessarily put it back, but think of whether there might be a more elegant pill
punkman: conf generator bash script that generates one?
asciilifeform: aha
asciilifeform: in that spirit.

asciilifeform: nor perl, etc
punkman: put it in makefile?
asciilifeform: i'm not even sure how to do this, other than in c, on a machine with no bash, perl, python, etc
asciilifeform: for now i'd just let that thing live
asciilifeform: other nitpick: the removal of the wx cruft is spiffy - it was next on my personal list. but i'd replace InitMessage with fprintf(FOO, ..... with FOO equalling stdout by default. this is because we might one day have a device with a character lcd screen, or teletype, or whatnot, and preserving the semantics of 'this is an init message' isn't entirely useless
punkman: InitMessage already had printf next to it
asciilifeform: ah hm
asciilifeform: what a crock of shit this thing was, from day 1...
punkman: perhaps some things that go to stderr currently, should also go to debug log
asciilifeform: ideally it'd all go to debug.log
punkman: it's still a mess, will need debug_sanity_part2.patch
asciilifeform: what's in that one ?
punkman: nothing yet
asciilifeform: and what's the deal with removing ShrinkDebugFile ?
punkman: I remember people complaining about that
asciilifeform: it needs to be switchable off, yes

asciilifeform: this one was on my list.
asciilifeform: but i'm very much behind with my list.
punkman: what's inbetween min/max?
asciilifeform: the replacement of various 'if debug ...'-isms
asciilifeform: these are to be displayed on max, but not on 'normal'
punkman: if(fDebug) is not used much though
asciilifeform: was gonna add verbosity in various spots, also, for 'max'

mod6: alright, cool. thx!
punkman: mod6, when you have a moment, could you have a look at my_snprintf, strprintf and error() in util.cpp? do we need all that?
mod6: punkman: yeah, sure. i'll take a closer look at it here in just a bit. that work?
mod6: might be better to use `diff -uNr a b` on your changes as opposed to `git --diff` too.
mod6: or `diff --git` w/e.
mod6: makes it /slightly/ easier to read.
mod6: i have no idea why (as a lot of things in this code) this is done:
mod6: so getting rid of that and just calling vsnprintf looks fine to me.
mod6 looks at others.
punkman: mod6: that's the output of "git diff -p" command. I don't see any differences besides the "index d91d969..6b38259 100644" sections.
mod6: if nothing else could you try with `git diff -pU`?

mod6: jurov: ahh, ok didn't know that.
punkman: it's in std lib
assbot: vsnprintf - C++ Reference ... ( )

assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 53650 @ 0.0005184 = 27.8122 BTC [+]
mod6: punkman: your changes to strprintf, error and my_snprintf to utilize vsnprintf directly look fine. I see in FormatException you changed snprintf to my_snprintf, which is apparently designed to be "safer".
mod6: Looks related to this: Concerning the return value of snprintf(), SUSv2 and C99 contradict each other: when snprintf() is called with size=0 then SUSv2 stipulates an unspecified return value less than 1, while C99 allows str to be NULL in this case, and gives the
mod6: return value (as always) as the number of characters that would have been written in case the output string has been large enough. SUSv3 and later align their specification of snprintf() with C99.
mod6: Is that the rationale there?
punkman: mod6, I just thought I'd remove some useless #defines, I got absolutely no clue what's going on there
mod6: looks like error(const std::string &&format, ...) does the same gyrations as around _vsnprintf/vsnprintf as my_snprintf. which is kinda strange. my_snprintf must have been added later.
assbot: Satoshi ... ( )
mod6: and strprintf ( except it checks (ret >= 0 && ret < limit) as well as a few other things.
mod6: !up ascii_field
mod6: punkman: the change from calling snprintf to calling my_snprintf (which inturn calls vsnprintf) might be a good change. but unless we know why we're doing it, maybe we should just leave that alone.

punkman: punkman: the change from calling snprintf to calling my_snprintf << there was a "#define snprintf my_snprintf" before, which I removed
mod6: phf: yah was just about to say, maybe wait until he submits his, then you can apply yours on top.
phf: it might be worthwhile to replace all those printfs with syslog(3) calls, specifically introducing the priority as the first argument, i.e. LOG_ALERT, LOG_WARNING, LOG_DEBUG. maybe have it conditional compilation, so that real bitcoin instance will log to syslog, where's debug instance will still write to file
mod6: punkman: ah, ok.

ascii_field: phf: i'm biased in the direction of rolling functionality ~into~ bitcoind, rather than ~out~ to unixland
phf: understood
punkman: I just added a -shrinkdebug option
ascii_field: i'll let others comment. maybe i'm wrong about this one
ascii_field: and log rotation, etc. ought to happen in separate proggies
punkman: doesn't pogo have logrotate or anything already?
ascii_field: but keep in mind that the thing needs to work on machines with no perl, no bash, etc
ascii_field: punkman: not afaik
punkman: what does it do with logs?
ascii_field: iirc it has none
mod6: :D
punkman: so shall I remove -logtimestamps?
phf: i think libc's syslog facility tries to pass messages to syslog and if the daemon is not running, they go into /dev/console instead
phf: but i think the easiest option is to adopt syslog interface (since they already have a reasonable list of priority tags), make it go to debug.log by default, and then interested parties can just do #define log syslog

ben_vulpes: ascii_field: turn it off on the pogo. they're fire and forget, are they not?
ascii_field: ben_vulpes: thing is, i like cutting code. but i dislike inserting dependencies on complicated unixisms like autorotators.
ascii_field: i also dislike increasing the subset of libc we use
trinque: what about a signal for it to close and reopen the log, and then people can do whatever they please outside it?
ben_vulpes: is disabling logs on the pogo not an adequate solution for you?
trinque: (I'm not aware of whether it already has this)
ascii_field: ben_vulpes: no.
ascii_field: i want log on mine, for example.
phf: ascii_field: autorotators exist because people don't know how to syslog mostly. i.e. you build a syslog demon based on the constraints of your system, i.e. on pogo might just be busybox's syslog, that does rudimentary truncation. elsewhere syslog writes to postgresql or whatever
phf: not running any syslog daemon turns it into fire and forget, so you won't get any logs unless you are physically connected to console
ascii_field: again this is entirely logical except that it creates a new dependency
ascii_field: i.e. one more thing i'd have to reimplement for msdos or bare-metal port.
ben_vulpes: can we get the best of both worlds? eg log to standard debug.log if unconfigured, syslog if configured?
trinque: you could have the best of both by having it just fart messages out stdout and stderr, then attaching it to something like svlogd if/when you want that in a file
ascii_field: ^

asciilifeform: 'I know, I know. It's gauche to even bring this kind of stuff up. It's not part of our consensus reality. It's not part of our consensus history. When it comes to actual history, however,...'
decimation: cazalla: most us towns - even little cities - have a massive bus infrastructure just to take kids to and from school - and nobody else
mircea_popescu: eh, nothing was ever built by the afraid.
mircea_popescu: what, is this the universal excuse now ? "why is he fucking dumb ?" "he is ~~~affraid for his own physical safety~~~ magic wordsd!!!" "oh ok then, all is well, carry on"
decimation: mircea_popescu: which is why they left, and it is crumbling
mircea_popescu: good riddance.
mircea_popescu: by any practical measure they were an offense to the land they shaded.
mod6: So over the weekend and today, was working on building a new gentoo-amd64-nomultilib (glibc) instance to test out application of patches with v0.5.3.1-RELEASE as the base. Was able to build static binaries with gentoo & glibc just fine with both a modified auto-static ( and with a slightly modified script.
asciilifeform: good work mod6
asciilifeform: modified how ?
mircea_popescu: mod6 they be actually static ?
mod6: Upon successful compilation, both static builds were able to pull at least 150`000 blocks from mp's node.
mircea_popescu: pretty cool
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform btw is your node stuck ?
asciilifeform had actual static, in 'stator', compare with the elf attached there
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: not at all
asciilifeform: hasn't been stuck once since i moved the clock, afaik
mircea_popescu: tried to track it with a node, it resulted in a stuck node 0.O
mod6: mircea_popescu: it appears to me that they are. I have two build logs (one for with and one with They can be found:
assbot: ... ( )
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: interesting! please say if you are able to replicate this
mircea_popescu: workin' on it.
asciilifeform: (on clean box)
assbot: ... ( )
cazalla: decimation, they had a bus for the high school i attended and when i got sent to naughty boy school i was given a train ticket which provide free travel (which was self defeating in that i no longer had to jump the train but could now ride legit for free lol)
asciilifeform: anybody else wedged ?
asciilifeform: (other than mircea_popescu)
mod6: (at the bottom of these sizeable files, you can see me run `ldd` and `readelf` against the output binaries)
asciilifeform: me==365216
mod6: I have created a simple build script that will pull all of the patches, verify them, apply the patches at the top of the file. Along with anything else that was required.
asciilifeform: nice
decimation: cazalla: at least you rode transport that others in the city could use
asciilifeform: ^ just to be clear re: above, my node is not, as far as i can tell, wedged!
mod6: This is all leading up to a new "patching guide" that I'm working on. Which is basically finished, save the fact I've yet to decide which direction to go on the build script. On one hand, I really love how simple and clean is, but with, I like how it automatically pulls the archives for you and creates the directories. etc.
decimation: my node has taken almost 2 weeks to get to 264k
mod6: Anyway, working on it. :]
trinque: mod6: pretty cool!
mod6: decimation: plugged into mp's node?
trinque: hi ag3nt_zer0
ag3nt_zer0: hey trinque
decimation: is on' ascii's node I think
mod6: ah
mod6: <@asciilifeform> modified how ? << with stator, I needed to add back in 'no-shared', according to this is required for us (probably). And I also needed to modify your line `cd bitcoin/bitcoin/src;` to `cd bitcoin/src;`. All of the things are in the build log, I tried not to leave anything out.

ag3nt_zer0: several months back I was at the plug and play bitcoin meetup... Nathaniel Popper was there talking about his book... anyway, after the talk I was standing in line to ask him to clarify something when this familiar-looking chap gets in line behind me. asks me who what etc...
mod6: Those were the only changes to stator that were required to make it fit with the release artifact.

ag3nt_zer0: at the time I was all zigzagged about Trilema and so I asked him if he had heard of it... he scanned the files that the eye accesses when it looks down/right and there was a spark... he said "what's that?"... I said "dunno, run by this guy Mircea something or other"... he said "oh, that guy doesnt like me"... later he asked for my number and when he pulled out his phone I saw his name was Tim Swanson
BingoBoingo: !b 1
assbot: Last 1 lines bashed and pending review. ( )
ag3nt_zer0: trivial perhaps, and not to make fun of him, but I thought it was pretty funny...

decimation: ag3nt_zer0: was already done, look in the logs
ag3nt_zer0: decimation: thanks. guess I should make that a habit before posting here...
trinque: 'tis the custom
cazalla: i think the tim swanson story more than makes up for it ag3nt_zer0
ag3nt_zer0: hehe

asciilifeform: mod6: rather peculiar that you had to add in 'no-shared' - witness that there are no shared deps in my executable (attached to 'stator' post on ml)
mod6: well, actually, I didn't /have/ to at all.
mod6: every time i've built the 'stator' before, the output binary was fine.
asciilifeform: mod6: have you made any experiment to learn whether binary changes at all when this flag is set ?
asciilifeform: might be interesting
mod6: statically built. but I recall going through this in march how we needed that in there... just maybe overly paranoid.
mod6: <@asciilifeform> might be interesting << i have not, as of yet.
trinque: didn't openssl itself have some derpy module-loader thing?
mod6: would be easy for me to try now though.
trinque: perhaps the flag enables/disables that
decimation: yes, openssl had a dynamic library loader flag
asciilifeform: aha
asciilifeform: what was it
decimation: sigh, search is down
asciilifeform: no-dso iirc
mircea_popescu: <mod6> I have created a simple build script << you may consider signing some of the things you pull
asciilifeform: ^^^
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 11900 @ 0.00055519 = 6.6068 BTC [+]
asciilifeform: pleez folks, sign
asciilifeform: if you read, understood - sign.
mod6: sign the patches before pulling?
asciilifeform: can sign and say 'this is a bad idea', note
mod6: this is for *Experimental* only.
asciilifeform: doesn't imply endorsement
decimation: yeah no-dso
assbot: Compilation and Installation - OpenSSLWiki ... ( )
mod6: I only stamp approval at release time.
mircea_popescu: ag3nt_zer0 i dun particularly care one way or the other. the discussion's in teh logs which atm can't be searched it seems.
asciilifeform: a signature from a reasonably literate wot face, 'i read this and it made sense', is worth something.
asciilifeform: to me, at least.
decimation: mthreat explained his hosting guy forgot to pay the bills
ag3nt_zer0: yeah was just gonna say search not working
mod6: There are some very far reaching effects of the patches applied in these build logs. They appear to "work", but as of yet, they're basically untested.
mircea_popescu: mod6 not strongarming you
asciilifeform: ag3nt_zer0: << thread
assbot: Logged on 13-07-2015 18:43:01; ascii_field: << other lulz of the day
mod6: not taken that way :]
ag3nt_zer0: asciilifeform: yes I found that... thx
asciilifeform: mod6: thus far the longest-running test is the s.nsa node.
asciilifeform: it features my entire shebang through 'stator'.
mod6: that's good!
ag3nt_zer0: was just looking up z86 heh
asciilifeform: presently 47 connections, incl. a bunch of cn, interestingly
mircea_popescu: nb.
ag3nt_zer0: z80
asciilifeform: usually hovers between 35-50
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: pay it a visit, log in, see if spot anybody you know...
mircea_popescu: eh, im working on an eulora release rightnao
asciilifeform: neat
mod6: ok building again without 'no-shared' for binary examination
mod6: <@asciilifeform> doesn't imply endorsement << ok. i was just under the impression that's excatly what it meant.
mod6: I emboss cryptographically, stating that I've read, comprehended, approved and would apply in my own battlestation.
asciilifeform: normally folks say why they're signing something
asciilifeform: when they sign it
mod6: That's fair if it has a disclaimer.
mod6: lol, guess I just didn't wanna clutter up the turdomatic or confuse anyone either.
asciilifeform: compared to most similar boards, it is practically empty
asciilifeform: (imho a 'feature, not bug')
mod6: less is more, as always. if there's too much in there, it's less likely to be read.
asciilifeform: has plenty of room for assorted strange.
asciilifeform: without becoming crowded.
mod6: I see, we just have a bit different view of the thing. I only wanna send stuff in that I can pretty much stand behind.
mod6: One of the resasons that I haven't even posted the gentoo build guide to the list either.
mod6: I've tested it, trinque has tested it, but we need a third party to independantly verify so I know what I'm publishing there is as correct as it can be.
mod6: I'll give this some further thought going forward. I don't wanna hold off on pulling the trigger on this stuff if all I need is simple skull & cross bones.
trinque: I can see the point that two signatures would've communicated what you said, mod6
asciilifeform: feel free to use a different graphic if the old 'jolly roger' has gotten boring
trinque: with some note
trinque: ascii-dickbutt
mod6: asciilifeform: noted.
mod6: <+trinque> I can see the point that two signatures would've communicated what you said, mod6 << in that it would have been 1/2 of the foundation's official seal?
mod6: i thought so too. and it's a credit to my trust of asciilifeform that I verify his signature, and we have a L1 trust between us.
mod6: eh, that was poorly worded. I think you all understand my meaning.
asciilifeform: trust & fuzzies is great, but i'd really like folks to start reading the patches
asciilifeform: (mod6 does. ben_vulpes? who else)
asciilifeform: trinque?
trinque: I mean that it indelibly marks the text in question with the involvement of the signers
asciilifeform: and yes, after read, and think - sign.
trinque: I do read the mailing list, yes
asciilifeform: 'i read this, grasped it'
asciilifeform: or even 'i read this and it made no fucking sense and wtf'
trinque: oh that reminds me
trinque: jurov: tls outbound smtp for the mailing list plz?
trinque: should be a simple switch to flip in
trinque: (if postfix)
trinque: for no better reason than I've required it on my end and it cut spam by 100x
asciilifeform: trinque: why was this needed ?
asciilifeform: hm
mod6: asciilifeform: point taken. glad we talked about it. and yeah, very much so read and examine every patch.
asciilifeform: trinque: it's also how you get the next 'hearbleed' on your box
asciilifeform: *heart
trinque: yeah that is true
asciilifeform: this atmosphere where 'gotta have ssl or else' is an engineered product
trinque: sure, I wasn't saying that
asciilifeform: i advocate - resistance.
trinque: the box was getting ass-blasted with spam
asciilifeform: there are other ways to filter spam, no ?
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 8800 @ 0.00054366 = 4.7842 BTC [-]
trinque: sure, was running spamassassin and whatnot
trinque: your point about heartbleed is well taken
asciilifeform: i also have a habit, of compulsively re-reading own patches
asciilifeform: to see if made a mistake.
asciilifeform: i recommend this habit.
mod6: it does help. i often have to come back to it like a day later and re-read my own stuff for the 9th time.
asciilifeform: a mistake that is owned up to, before it sinks any ships - can perhaps be accepted as a mistake, and forgiven
asciilifeform: not sure about other kinds
asciilifeform: as the war heats up.
mod6: also more eyes help too. sometimes we all miss stuff.
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 23750 @ 0.00054366 = 12.9119 BTC [-]
trinque: I'm off; gnite gents
mod6: night trinque
asciilifeform: later
mod6: I'll make an effort this week to sign the patches I've read and understand, even if still experimental at this time.
asciilifeform: i recall that last we spoke of this, folks signed and noticed that jurov's patch sig widget didn't eat them correctly
asciilifeform: and stopped
mod6: and I'll find a new ascii art instead of the jolly roger ;)
asciilifeform: possibly i misremember.
asciilifeform: check, when search comes back
mod6: ah, yeah... hm. I believe when I went to sign all the patches from the last release, I had to pull the patches, and then sign them as if I had wrote them myself for them to be accepted.
mod6: They needed to basically have the same SHA1s as the originals, with my own detatched sig.
mod6: Anyway, yah, will take a look when search comes back.
mod6: Someday, we're gonna get the kinks worked out of this system.
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 87466 @ 0.00054424 = 47.6025 BTC [+] {2}
mod6: ok this build is just about done...
ag3nt_zer0: good night
mod6: ni
ag3nt_zer0: whoops that was for trinque... hadn' scrolled
phf: ben_vulpes:!
assbot: 404 Not Found ... ( )
mod6: asciilifeform: ok, compile complete.
asciilifeform: << unrelated l0lpharm, for connoisseurs of 'functional' prog. styles
assbot: Open Source @ Jane Street ... ( )
mod6: welp, they do hvae differenet hashes. that at least is obv.
asciilifeform: mod6: hexdump -C, then diff
mod6: ok, i was just gonna do a quick `xxd <file> | less` and look at 'em side by side.
mod6: ok looking through the hexdump -C diff now....
asciilifeform: mod6: also worth comparing objdump output
asciilifeform: probably oughta begin there, vs the hex
asciilifeform bbl
mod6: yeah, i thought about that first actually. but gotta recompile since bins are striped
mod6: *stripped
mod6: i'll tackle that tomorrow i think.
mod6: night all!
ag3nt_zer0: Gute Nacht!
