shinohai: At the very least, I have not cursed God one time in all my failures with this pogo danielpbarron, so maybe there is hope for me yet.
danielpbarron: << they are hypocrites. The Bible explicitly says to not pray in public. (Matthew 6:5)
assbot: Logged on 30-07-2015 19:09:50; shinohai: trinque: I do regularly mumble prayers in public to Satan, when fundamentalists ruin my meal by trying to pray loudly over their food for 30 minutes.

assbot: Logged on 30-07-2015 19:12:18; mircea_popescu: * danielpbarron too << maybe solution then is ask 7 yo kid if they should be killed and do the opposite.
shinohai: I have read the Bible many times and have come to the conclusion that the majority of "Christians" I have met or seen are decidedly un-Christlike.
danielpbarron: yes, same here.
danielpbarron: and that is a correct observation
danielpbarron: and it is perfectly in-line with the predictions of The Bible
shinohai: Also, Luke 17:2
danielpbarron: Jesus Himself wondered if there would be anyone who believes when He returns
danielpbarron: ya, false teachers are the most despicable people on earth
kakobrekla: nah, the correct observation would be that religion is a virus and religious people ill.
shinohai: I believe if you are going to follow a faith, you can't just pick and choose the parts that sound cherry to you.
danielpbarron: i guess that's not too far off from my own experience, in that I did not choose to believe, although the way I see it is that God made me well and it's all the non-believers who are still ill
shinohai: I'd rather say "I'm an atheist" and be wrong, than be one of the hypocrites danielpbarron describes.
danielpbarron: "atheist" probably have better chances of being saved than most self-described christians
jurov: shinohai how can you ever choose a faith otherwise?
jurov: if you are convinced that you're despicable scum and choose a faith that says so.. then you cherrypicked too
shinohai: If there *is* a God jurov, I'd like to think he chooses you, instead of vice-versa. I know all the "free will" speeches.
shinohai: Free will seems like an excuse, like God is setting you up for failure.
danielpbarron: ^ ++
jurov: you still need to decide when He talks to you and when not
danielpbarron: the concept of "free will" has no foundation in The Bible
danielpbarron: God causes all things, both good and evil
danielpbarron: (Isaiah 45:7)
shinohai: If that is true, then does that mean God is equal part Satan as well? I don't follow.
danielpbarron: satan is not nearly as big of a deal as most people are lead to believe
kakobrekla: l0l
danielpbarron: God causes satan (and everyone else for that matter) to do what he does, and satan will too be destroyed in the lake of fire
danielpbarron: not rule it
shinohai: That is predestination, no?
danielpbarron: sure
danielpbarron: yay eulora is back up!
shinohai: So if god already knows I am evil and he is going to send me to hell, what is the point of even trying?
jurov: so everything is just a big puppet show?
danielpbarron: not just knows but actually created you for the purpose of being that way
jurov: A new commandment I give upon thee: lean back and enjoy!
kakobrekla: eh please, even Exaybachay has better stories than that.
shinohai: I'm not interested in being a pawn in some celestial chess match, tbh.
danielpbarron: right, The Bible says fear nothing but God. It's relaxing to believe because no longer do you have to worry about each and every hyped up "terrorism" that people try to sell
kakobrekla: you know the bible has the credibility of the santa story
danielpbarron: i hate the santa story
shinohai: To me, it was a relief to say "idgaf" about it all anymore.
kakobrekla: on pair with your book.
danielpbarron: i recently told a friend's 5 year old son that anyone who tries to tell him about santa is a liar
kakobrekla: well, could be just sick.
jurov: kakobrekla: God caused you to :)
shinohai: I also can't believe that throughout 2000+ years of Christianity's existence that some unknown "non-denomination" comes along and finally gets it right,
shinohai: right here in good 'ol 'murica

shinohai: Because Jesus was obviously a homophobic, racist, bigot right?
shinohai: The Jesus that is portrayed in the gospels seems the polar opposite of all that is preached now.
danielpbarron: Jesus is the same God as the one in the old testament
danielpbarron: and He isn't afraid of homosexuals as the suffix "phobic" implies
danielpbarron: and there may very well have been true churches along the way from 2000 years ago to today, I just don't know about them
danielpbarron: not surprising that they are unknown, as scripture informs us that the world will hate the truth
shinohai: Surely God's ego can handle different ways of approaching him.
shinohai: Not sure if my pal pussyfreak is here, but he is a Java developer. I hate Java, but I haven't tried to kill him or tell him he is going to fry if he doesn't use Python instead.
davout: shinohai: he is already frying in hell
shinohai: xD
davout: "Those who believe there is a difference between nirvana and samsara, are already in samsara"
kakobrekla: the world will hate the truth < what every liar said too.
kakobrekla: thats the first thing you establish before telling lies.
davout: does reddit haet? yes? then it's probably true
kakobrekla: does ba haet? yes? then its probably true.
davout: heh
davout: we should migrate to #bitcoin-asshaet
danielpbarron: well the fact that i'm not banned from here yet is a good sign for you guys
davout: every king has its fool
davout: and i have to say i'm amused :D
shinohai: danielpbarron: I think it is wrong to ban a person just because they hold different beliefs. I have plenty of Xstian friends.
danielpbarron: lol no it's the "christians" who ban me
danielpbarron: there was a channel on efnet i used to hang out in way back when i was still atheist
danielpbarron: earlier this year they effectively banned me for telling people they were going to hell
danielpbarron: particularly one of the other regulars there, a practitioner of modern judaism
kakobrekla: I think it is wrong to ban a person just because they hold different beliefs. < this doesnt make much sense , but > I think it is wrong to ban a person just because are sick. < does.
shinohai: Well I could certainly phrase it better kakobrekla. My brain is rather fried atm.
kakobrekla: its not about phrasing, its about meaning.
decimation: danielpbarron: what does a 'practitioner of modern judaism' do exactly? like, they know they torah and tanakh but are too cool to follow them?
decimation: kakobrekla: why are religious people any more ill for holding a conviction about the supernatural than atheists - who hold similar convictions?
kakobrekla: decimation note that im speaking of 'religious' and not 'spiritual'. i think that answers your question.
decimation: not in the least. how do you distinguish?
kakobrekla: example: i dont know exactly what consciousness is, but i am not going to go believing santa didit and act like a psychopath in that name.

asciilifeform: i like 'netcat'
decimation: yeah, but it is quirky

decimation: well, yeah. except for that part
decimation: why not a fixed amount of heap?
asciilifeform: because fragging
asciilifeform: otherwise it doesn't matter where you put the buffer, so long as it gets used, whole, for every decode, with no further allocatory shenanigans
decimation: pratically speaking it is best to keep the whole footprint smaller than the L3 cache on your cpu
asciilifeform: l0.
asciilifeform: incidentally, if one is optimizing for max performance on tiny data set, on an x86 pc, it is worth considering 'cache as ram mode'
asciilifeform: which cpu powers up in, when loading bios
asciilifeform: this is only even theoretically usable for own code if you have a ~real~ (that is, amd, and 'coreboot'able) machine
decimation: I should think rsa would fit in 8mb
asciilifeform: easily 8kb

asciilifeform: aha.
asciilifeform: folks dealing with mircea_popescu-style packet filtration problems and similar operations really ought to consider it.

decimation: yes, not only that but multi-core interrupts too
asciilifeform: nah interrupts are optional
decimation: ideally you would want promiscuous mode
asciilifeform: why?
decimation: so you wouldn't even need to restrict yourself to a single ip
asciilifeform: what is the point of omitting this basic - and free - filter ?

asciilifeform: but if, like or not, you transport a herd of elephants every friday, buying the 'boeing' may be a logical choice
decimation: yeah, would have to spend $10k-100k on router
decimation: cisco 3945e claims to handle 3mpps (64byte) for instance, can be had on ebay for 5-10k

assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 30450 @ 0.0005414 = 16.4856 BTC [-]
mircea_popescu: tx passed the test, and is now a tx. should get something for this.
danielpbarron: you'd have to keep the transaction in order to remember to not include it later
mircea_popescu: this is the required balance to this scheme. yes, we kill all idiot children without anyu regard to the ever rising blood level on the floor or the tears of their mothers.
mircea_popescu: but once they made it through that, they can have whatever they want.
ascii_field: they can't have the n bytes when my machine only has K-n to offer !
ascii_field: we have an elementary situation of not-enough-food-for-the-childrenz
mircea_popescu: which is why the idea is to have X bytes, and then allow tx in according to pay.
ascii_field: but they pay miners
ascii_field: not relay
mircea_popescu: the problem is solved there. no point solving it n other places.
mircea_popescu: yes. yes they do.
ascii_field: relay has to sit, eat the cost of existing
mircea_popescu: we try to make this not be different
mircea_popescu: relay will hopefully be paid by miner.
ascii_field: rly
mircea_popescu: yes rly.
kakobrekla: dragons will enforce it.
punkman: hope doesn't pay server bills
mircea_popescu: the only way relaying as currently deployed may survive is if it somehow ends up in a compact with mining
ascii_field: even if, on some distant tomorrow, we get this jam,
ascii_field: my machine is not a hilbert hotel !
ascii_field: has FINITE bytes
ascii_field: can't have a monotonic eater of these.
mircea_popescu: ascii_field again : we have a pool of X bytes. tx are allowed in only if they pay more than average fore that x.
mircea_popescu: this is where that problem is solved. no point also solving it somewhere else.
ascii_field: mircea_popescu: does this mean that we lose half of all tx ?
ascii_field: and then half of who remains ?
mircea_popescu: whatever %
ascii_field: ad infinitum ?
danielpbarron can imagine situations in which full node operators get paid for the service of relaying -- for example, 1) end user pays node to relay his tx and 2) miner pays node to give him the choicest high-fee paying tx's exclusively
mircea_popescu: if you have 8mb and mempool is actually 8gb, you lose 99.9%
ascii_field: so, only do this when cache is full ?
ascii_field: (at present, a node has no notion of 'full')
mircea_popescu: yes.
mircea_popescu: you set 10 bytes aside for "mempool". 1 tx comes, has 2 bytes pays 5. goes in. brings 4 brothers.
mircea_popescu: now cache is full and to get in, either pay 10 per byte or go dangle.
ascii_field: this works.
ascii_field: who wants to implement ?
kakobrekla: and each node has different cache size, brings on a bunch of mess
mircea_popescu: right.
mircea_popescu: kakobrekla that mess is good.
mircea_popescu: this thing needs 3 knobs : total ram to be made available to relayer, and min $/byte to accept.
funkenstein_: so where does it go in the TX? is there an OP_ANYONE_CAN_RECEIVE or something for the relayers/mempool operators to put their addy in?
funkenstein_: or maybe best to keep the payment for those services in a separate tx
mircea_popescu: or they could just rent vpn access like anyone ever since forever.
kakobrekla: but then you need another tx to cover for that tx
danielpbarron: you tell the full node what inputs and what outputs, node says ok here's a raw tx to sign (it includes an extra output pointing at node's own addr) and now you sign and give back
kakobrekla: and another for that tx
kakobrekla: and another
mircea_popescu: why the fuck does everyone imagine the internet = the web is beyond me.
kakobrekla: and .. you know where this goes
funkenstein_: loll, all the way down

assbot: Logged on 31-07-2015 17:27:00; mircea_popescu: ascii_field again : we have a pool of X bytes. tx are allowed in only if they pay more than average fore that x.
asciilifeform: ^ iirc this was in all 4 suggested versions
asciilifeform: 'accept or reject every incoming tx based on where it falls with respect to average $/mass'
asciilifeform: and now for part 2 of the algo,
mircea_popescu: im too lazy to dig through the logs. but yes, your thing's the winner.
asciilifeform: the obvious thing to do after this:
asciilifeform: let ~peers~ access the cream of tx (top of sorted cache)
mircea_popescu: aha.
mircea_popescu: kinda the whole point.
asciilifeform: not everyone, mind you
asciilifeform: but ~peers~
mircea_popescu: peers/payers
asciilifeform: as in, folks who paid for the vpn key.
asciilifeform: aha.
mircea_popescu: should also allow those peers that provide the fat.
asciilifeform: how's that work
mircea_popescu: (original design was to simply shutter all connecting peers that fail to provide good $$$ txn, in some sort of %)
asciilifeform: thing is, this'll result in a very random selection at present
asciilifeform: just like disconnecting bastard-spewers
mircea_popescu: random is hard to beat in practice.
mircea_popescu: moreover, random is what spwaned forth the incredible complexity of life.
asciilifeform: what i mean is that presently, a disconnect costs us.
mircea_popescu: let there be a selection pressure in this petri dish.
asciilifeform: in that there aren't that many folks on decent pipes connecting
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform and not fucking all comers costs the female, too.
asciilifeform: and losing one statistically means that it is replaced by cattle on dsl
mircea_popescu: i think this is one of those situation where suboptimal wins. let us "lose", i'll take the loss.
asciilifeform: wanna suggest a numeric value for the penalty constant ?
asciilifeform: or hell, we can make it a knob.
mircea_popescu: config file.
asciilifeform: aha.
mircea_popescu: ^
asciilifeform: so i'm still at a loss as to how to subscribe those that supply the fat.
mircea_popescu: well what i was thinking was the converse (shuttering those who fail to provide acceptable txn, in sufficient proportion)
mircea_popescu: it's a start.
mircea_popescu: it leads to the following game theoretical situation : want your node to be well connected ? simply tell IT your decent fee paying txn.
mircea_popescu: sort of like those robot fight cage matches things.
asciilifeform: ^ this was sorta where i wanted to go
asciilifeform: however, the friction has to be sufficiently low
mircea_popescu: we're rich, we can afford not to give a shit atm.
mircea_popescu: later on, unstoppable.
mircea_popescu: because, as they say in omaha, "you're smart and i'm right, you'll figure it out"
asciilifeform: what i mean is, it has to be +ev for someone to even touch this.
asciilifeform: (someone other than us maniacs)
mircea_popescu: us maniacs are really all that matters, in the grander scheme of things.
asciilifeform: but we don't mine.
asciilifeform: (afaik...)
mircea_popescu: doesn't matter.
asciilifeform: except that, as i understand, this is a mechanism where miner is one of the moving parts
asciilifeform: what am i missing ?
mircea_popescu: suppose we're in the park. "throw the crumbs over there" "but the birds won't see them" "doesn't matter, we're the only things that matter here" "but we don't cluck"
mircea_popescu: indeed, we don't.
mircea_popescu: we also don't die if we miss the crumbs.
asciilifeform: that's kinda what i meant by +ev
mircea_popescu: for instance : i will be putting all my txn out through my own nodes, once this exists.
mircea_popescu: im currently about 1/3 the reason bitpay even stays in business, fwiw (not much).
asciilifeform: l0l!!
mircea_popescu: heck, last month i was a good chunk of coinbase too, because of that buysellads failed experiment.
mircea_popescu: and other such things.
asciilifeform: usg's #1 source of coin !
asciilifeform: mega-l0lzie
mircea_popescu is tolerant.
asciilifeform: birdz gotta eat.
asciilifeform: << in other lulz
assbot: Stupid Patent of the Month: Trolls Go After Sex Toy Manufacturers | Electronic Frontier Foundation ... ( )
mircea_popescu: in any case : reasonable bw, fee paying no bs txn is a very hard to beat prop, ev wise.
mircea_popescu: in fact it may actually be more productive for nearby miner to mine based off our nodes than the stupid shit the chinese do currenty
asciilifeform resigns to probably having to write this, too.
mircea_popescu: it's no emergency really, if its in by the next halving it's soon enough.
asciilifeform or rather, to testing the version he secretly wrote already
mircea_popescu: they should have gasenwagen'd you when they had the chance, eh ?
asciilifeform: plenty of time.
mircea_popescu: for they ion the know : i got a pile of specialty chocolates here, and i will win the fight!
hanbot wonders if asciilifeform has also secretly already written the match trick solution
mircea_popescu: ahahaha ouch.

mircea_popescu: danielpbarron you got the actual function to select optimal usage/mixage of tools given a set ?

mircea_popescu: in lisp ?
danielpbarron: no
mircea_popescu: (probably ideal usage of lisp, check me out phf im doing lisp girls coach over here!)
danielpbarron: well i don't have a function; i have a formula
danielpbarron: and equation rather
mircea_popescu: aha.
mircea_popescu: actually this'd prollybe interesting to our very own gabriel_laddel too.
phf: i misread that as "couch", was not surprised
danielpbarron: it took me a day of thinking about it off and on to come up with
mircea_popescu: lol
BingoBoingo: My favorite part of reading my debug.log is getting to see all the transactions that don't make it to the mempool
mircea_popescu: (the problem, ftr, is : you get a set of tools, with arbitrary durability. you can mix any set (which floor-averages), and decay any individual tool (fixed rate). make a collection of 9 with durabilities from 1 to 9)
mircea_popescu: in practice the mix operation is cheap and the decay operation expensive.
mircea_popescu: so, find optimal path and prove it's optimal.
danielpbarron: i plug in a few numbers into equation, solve for x, paste my macro x-many times, let it run while i do other stuff
mircea_popescu: for bonus points, offer preference criterion (would A or B be more beneficial if added to the set)
mircea_popescu: decimation tis a hack.
danielpbarron: i might not be doing it optimally
danielpbarron: but we need the explored resources anyway; it's not like i'm wasting time doing somethign i wouldn't have done otherwise

mircea_popescu: no dude, not heartbreakingly. the only human dumb enough to imagine girlhood's right is the girl in question.
mircea_popescu: girlhood's something you hopefully grow out of. failure to grow out of it is the definition of retardation.
mircea_popescu: ie, it takes you longer, perhaps infinitely long, to mature.
punkman: it's mostly about clothes
punkman: (the article)
mircea_popescu: heh.
mircea_popescu: anyway. why can't "coding like a girl" mean you write good documentation, for instance ?
mircea_popescu: that's what i would like it to mean. "this was coded by a girl" should be the indication that if i follow the fucking thing, i get the intended result. NOT some error message.
