BingoBoingo: !up Michail1
Michail1: ?
decimation: what brings you here?
asciilifeform: 'The Army's countermobility field manual taught soldiers to use ADMs for "stream cratering," in which atomic explosions near small waterways would "form a temporary dam, create a lake, cause overbank flooding, and produce an effective water obstacle" for enemy forces.'
decimation: not a bad idea
BingoBoingo: Michail1: You showed up, know you've been around. Voiced you because bored.
Michail1: ah
mircea_popescu: sounds retarded really.
Michail1: Think I have been here a long ass time, only for logging though.
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: But who wears the pack?
mircea_popescu: what a fucking nightmare, a "countermobility" unit that drops random nukes
decimation: mircea_popescu: why not? gotta stop the tanks somehow?
mircea_popescu: heh.
mircea_popescu: the only thing that'll do is increase your casualties.
asciilifeform: 'But when Green Light team member Ken Richter began interviewing potential candidates, he said, not everyone was as enthusiastic: "I had a lot of people that I interviewed for our team. Once they found out what the mission was, they said, 'No, thanks. I'd rather go back to Vietnam.' "'
decimation: it's not a particularly large bomb as nukes go
decimation: but it still might trigger the 'ok let's start tossing nukes' scenario
BingoBoingo: decimation: Few nukes are that big
mircea_popescu: decimation that's not the idea. the idea is... so tanks go around, now you're stuck with some units caught between a crater fgulla radioactive water and enemy spear units
mircea_popescu: without food or any possibility of being supported.
asciilifeform: 'In addition, the two-man rule, which to this day dictates that no individual service member have the ability to arm a nuclear weapon, demanded that Green Light teams divide the code that unlocked the cover plate. But that could present a challenge if the wrong man got killed en route to the target. "Here you were with this hunk of sh-- in your bag and no good place to go," Flavin said. "So we said, 'Eh, I don't think we can a

mircea_popescu: decimation even worse holy shit.
mircea_popescu: imagine if the week after wehrmacht broke its cock in stalingrad

mircea_popescu: if you've never retreated, maybe.

asciilifeform: 'Probably to make the weapon resistant to electromagnetic pulses from any nearby nuclear explosions, as one might expect at the outset of war with the Soviets, the AEC had fashioned the SADM largely devoid of electronics. Instead, the device relied on two mechanical timers that, unfortunately, became less accurate the longer they were set for, potentially going off as early as eight minutes ahead of schedule or as many as 13 b
asciilifeform: ehind. Army field manuals warned that it was "not possible to state that [the timers] will fire at a specific time," so SADM teams were trained to predict the general window in which the weapon would go off.'

decimation: BingoBoingo: needs more than miner fee, ideally some kind of 'bolt-on' mechanism for 'paying for a spot in the tx queue'
n6: trinque: thanks let me read this, and try again.
asciilifeform: decimation: mircea_popescu's idea was to have it be precisely by miner fee
BingoBoingo: decimation: Sure "exists"
asciilifeform: and miners pay to access the cream of tx cache
trinque: n6: bon voyage
decimation: asciilifeform: it is now. earlier when I brought this up he (and jurov) said that it should be decided out-of-band with node owners
asciilifeform: well yes, they pay out of band
asciilifeform: ('in-band' doesn't really feature an explicit provision for this kind of dealing)
decimation: yes but I mean the fees would be collected directly by the node-owner, not paid via miner
asciilifeform: nope
asciilifeform: miner pays to access the top of the sorted mempool
asciilifeform: (the most lucrative-per-byte tx-en)
asciilifeform: how he pays, was not yet determined afaik
punkman: I don't see many scenarios where miner can't find nice transactions on his own
decimation: well, that was what made sense to me originally too, but then there was
assbot: Logged on 19-07-2015 20:14:16; jurov: it's not hard for every node to advertise addy for caching fees
asciilifeform: i can find 'nice' food on the forest floor.
asciilifeform: or i can go to a store.
decimation: asciilifeform: it does seem the most 'rational' for the miners to pay for access to the best nodes
asciilifeform: aha
asciilifeform: then again, it would also be rational for them not to fucktardedly 'spv'
decimation: as opposed to the users to pay the nodes for services of questionable value (if it transmits, why care?)
asciilifeform: yet they do.
asciilifeform: likewise, for 99% of them it would be rational to never mine at all
asciilifeform: never even to consider it
decimation: asciilifeform: well, they might not 'spv' if they had a node network from which they could draw juicy fees
decimation: asciilifeform: maybe they use stolen bunker oil in nigera to power jungle mining farm
asciilifeform: mining as we know it does not exactly select for folks who rationally weigh roi
BingoBoingo: Guzzoline! Witness!!!
decimation: not unless they can also sell mining equipment, not
decimation: but I still think this is true:
assbot: Logged on 19-07-2015 20:13:10; decimation: yes, but you would agree that building such a network with an eye toward minimizingn latency everywhere would be expensive
decimation: it's not gonna be 'free' to build good node caching network, gotta pay $$$ for access to mining 'input hole'
decimation: wherever that might be
asciilifeform: wai wat
decimation: asciilifeform: say you have the 'fee maximizing' software written
decimation: someone else takes it and runs on a network with less latency than yours
decimation: miners don't pay you anymore
asciilifeform: at a certain point, the only real use of mining will be collect tx fees
asciilifeform: decimation: how much would you personally pay to shave a millisecond of latency ?
asciilifeform: diminishing returns
decimation: true, and it has to be balanced against the size of the 'fee haul'
asciilifeform: don't forget the other variable:
asciilifeform: sanity.
decimation: I suppose this aspect of bitcoin too seems to be inevitably centralized/carteled
asciilifeform: as in, 'this pool is a millisecond faster but runs gavinized soup'

ascii_field: davout, trinque, et al: i will not be giving any automatic system access to my pgptron.
trinque: I've never used darcs, have no opinion on it
trinque: but I agree with that principle
davout: ascii_field: if you could have a separate pgptron for checking sigs, and the ability to manually insert a signed patch into it?
ascii_field: speaking of signing, rather than checking
ascii_field: checking can be done on a keyless pgp
davout: yeah, that's the point
davout: check fingerprints, trust keys, you can check
davout: with some additional bash script that checks that each key is L1/L2
davout: (for each commit that is)
mircea_popescu: aga
mircea_popescu: aha*
davout: so basically the toolset reduces to:
davout: 1. versioning system that works sanely (able to extract individually signed commits)
ascii_field: already wrong formulation. why 'extract' when ~they are the canonical representation~
davout: 2. validation script that checks that every single commit is signed by WoT-folks
davout: 3. tiny script that spits out a properly formatted signed commit for inclusion in versioning tool
davout: ascii_field: extract them all if you really insist on having a canonical representation you can frame and hang on your wall i guess
ascii_field: davout: do you understand what 'canonical representation' means ?
davout: the representation you prefer but is semantically equivalent to another representation ?
ascii_field: it means that i will not look at nor will ask anyone else to look at any other representation
ascii_field: can take mine, convert to yours, sure

punkman: for folks that might still be baffled: gpg creates a master sign-only key that is used to sign sub keys. when you encrypt something for the main fingerprint, gpg chooses an encryption subkey.
punkman: (and yes RSA keys can do both, it's just a flag gpg sets on the keys)

trinque: looks so
trinque: how's that thing?
BingoBoingo: I'm not sure rc is jsut the plan9 shell. On Openbsd I see those two letter attached to all kinds of scripts and Openrc is apparently best Gentoo init.

trinque: asciilifeform: nah symlink for current kernel

asciilifeform: trinque swaps kernels daily ?
