assbot: Logged on 25-06-2015 21:47:45; assbot: Logged on 03-02-2015 23:43:58; asciilifeform: winnie pooh walks into a butcher's shop, asks 'got mortadella' ? answer, 'sure' winnie pooh draws a submachinegun and spins round, round, round with it, mowing down everything that moves: 'for piiigleet!'
asciilifeform: trinque: the thing about fefeleaga in my mind is that the stock off-the-shelf model of existence is a guaranteed suckfest.
asciilifeform: see mr.o, 'The great mass of human beings are not acutely selfish. After the age of about thirty they almost abandon the sense of being individuals at all — and live chiefly for others, or are simply smothered under drudgery. But there is also the minority of gifted, willful people who are determined to live their own lives to the end'
asciilifeform: and 'The impulse to cling to youth at all costs, to attempt to preserve your sexual attraction, to see even in middle age a future for yourself and not merely for your children, is a thing of recent growth and has only precariously established itself. It will probably disappear again when our standard of living drops and our birth-rate rises.'
asciilifeform: fefeleaga is sop
asciilifeform: it is the other items on the menu which are experimental, high-tech oddities, like particle accelerator.
asciilifeform: yes, just like it.
trinque: asciilifeform: first off, goddamn if I didn't just bellow laughter across the bar at "for piglet!"
trinque: and indeed, fefeleaga is the baseline
trinque: this is what we will amount to absent intelligence, luck, etc
trinque: but then too, my end is just like hers
trinque: absent "purpose" or whatever, just pain and desolation
trinque: there is freedom in that, but I'm not ready to articulate it
trinque: that freedom is why the story made me smile, horrible though it is

trinque: anticipating you
gernika: My Dad did enjoy telling me the story of the Donner Party. One of his favorites.

mod6: Meanwhile, now I'm gonna see if I can figure out this new versioning email. The hard part is going to be having to verify everything posted, and re-writing all of our documentation.

mircea_popescu: oh ok then

mircea_popescu: /sarcasm
mircea_popescu: anyway, the dudes that women hound are just as retarded. take me for instance : there's a shitton of opinions woman can't hold. recently met a very sweet girl, smart, decent figure. she's an argentine, so her only real chance to eat is to work for the government - there's really no productive activity going on here, much like it were say detroit. so she was some derpy "social worker" and aiming to either seniorize into
mircea_popescu: the civil corps or maybe run for office as she ages. like you know, hillary.
mircea_popescu: obviously that in that context, her choices are between depression and socialist ideas. so understandably, she had a lot of notions about "the people" and "the good".
mircea_popescu: notions which also happen to be intolerable. such is lyf.
mircea_popescu: she got so heartbroken she deleted her whatever profile etc. but wtf am i to do, i won't hang out with some chick that actually thinks "the people bla bla". just like that chick won't hang out with some dude that's either short or thinks the boo boo about fatties. cuz she can.

mod6: asciilifeform: ok cool! rel1.patch and rel2-pre.patch do apply cleanly to all of the existing patches

mod6: asciilifeform: yeah, one email is ok by me. just was curious what you had in mind.
asciilifeform: logical.
asciilifeform: mod6: what i have in mind is that this ends up being a box where you can drop in a sig (l1 !) and, optionally, one or more patches
asciilifeform: sig can be for existing patch in the list
asciilifeform: patch must be accompanied with sig
asciilifeform: (pairwise)
mircea_popescu: sounds about right.
asciilifeform: then everyone who did what mod6 did and verified that the universe of patches in 'orchestra' is actually identical to the previously published set but for the antecedent hashes,
asciilifeform: can submit sigs for them
asciilifeform: (with the proviso that he has read, grasped, each)

mircea_popescu: why ?
asciilifeform: it gets annoying, fast
mircea_popescu: let me rephrase.

asciilifeform: because no other state.
mircea_popescu: why do you think this is possible and if you have any reason to think so why aren't you fixing bitcoin then
mircea_popescu: wait. for every patch in the line, right ?
asciilifeform: it is possible if one does something jurovish and requires, e.g., sigs to include what they are sigs for in the filename or the like
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: mno, for every patch and every sig ever made.
mircea_popescu: ah that's nonsense.
asciilifeform: aha

mircea_popescu: looky : when i signed a piece of paper i nulled out the empty spaces.
mircea_popescu: a checksum's not a bad idea, why do you think it is a bad idea ?
asciilifeform: because it doesn't belong in-band.
BingoBoingo: <asciilifeform> ^ hearn unzips and begins << So begins project Scott Tenorman
asciilifeform: because a file is unitary.
asciilifeform: because motherfucking unix philosophy.
mircea_popescu: so i can't include a hash of the document i nthe document.
asciilifeform: because what you end up with is two files who are somehow trying to sit in one chair
asciilifeform: now you can't sha512sum on the file, have to put it through a cutter

mircea_popescu: it's not hard to explain tho. there's a political and a biological approach to life. the political approach is the thought of the alpha, the thing that results in half decade of trench warfare and a ruined europe : "either you sit lower than me or we fight."
asciilifeform: at any rate, the fixation with units of account is odd, if speaking of sovietized folk. i'd imagine they would realize that what they really want is 'sleep ad libitum', or even 'mercedes 600', rather than 'bag of benjies' per se

asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: you may be confusing him with diametric, like mircea_popescu did on a few occasions
asciilifeform: diametric is an actual person i see just about every day.
BingoBoingo: I've always confused him with diametric. In this case I think I confused with you because you talked about having been to the burning places in Baltimore now that I think about it.
asciilifeform: i have been to them. prior to their burning.
mircea_popescu: that wikipedia article is a rare example of extreme millitant ignorance.
mircea_popescu: a) the term is older than freud
BingoBoingo: Lafond guy seems to have some good stuff, a lot of bad stuff, and some interesting fiction. Just that accounting for getting hit in the head part takes work.
mircea_popescu: b) it readily describes all sorts of known-broken apprtoaches and techniques. such as the use of blackmail. it pointedly has nothing to do with either beating or set time breastfeeding
mircea_popescu: the two women named, miller and the other one, are unrelated to any academic field and especially unimportant for child rearing or child psychology.
asciilifeform: it isn't an article, it is cant, and this is detectable via five-second litmus of first paragraphs
asciilifeform doesn't typically bother to read these
mircea_popescu: but i am curious to see if this new trend will in some sort of timeframe bring us the black man invented cellphone of 2020
asciilifeform: here already
mircea_popescu: etc.
asciilifeform: soviet elephants are the biggest in the world!
mircea_popescu: well can't be here already, not yet 2020
mircea_popescu: in any case, sure, "buterin and hearn invented bitcoin in 2017" is just about the same deal.
asciilifeform: it'll be ethylin or somesuch
asciilifeform: propylin
asciilifeform: heptylin.
mircea_popescu: but hey, at least alexithymia
mircea_popescu: because if you say it in greek it ceases to be contemptibly stuopid.
mircea_popescu: The term "alexithymia" was coined by psychotherapist Peter Sifneos in 1973
mircea_popescu: except you can't "coin" anything if nobody ever heard about you or cared to read your stuff.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform back to the earlier issue. how do you reconcile your concept of "a file" with your concept of notation ?
asciilifeform: wai wat
mircea_popescu: seems utf-8 is requisite.
mircea_popescu: you can't have ascii.
asciilifeform: why ?
asciilifeform: can have what you want in the file
mircea_popescu: because what is the difference between "this file is noted in ascii" and "this file includes a hash"
asciilifeform: because don't care what's inside
mircea_popescu: but ascii implies oyu must care.
asciilifeform: if you care what's inside, now you have to cut it
asciilifeform: i can (and often do) sign a tar.gz
asciilifeform: or, on one occasion, 10MB of rng output
asciilifeform: (or how much was it.)
mircea_popescu: but these are numbers.
asciilifeform: aha
asciilifeform: let's work this out.
asciilifeform: if i want to embed hashes next to their payload, i get an explosion of complexity. because,
mircea_popescu: on what basis does ascii notation exist ?
asciilifeform: 1) now i have to remove the header before hashing the payload
asciilifeform: 2) have to represent the header differently if payload is meant to be displayable ascii, than if it is a binary
asciilifeform: (that is, unconstrained to printable chars)
asciilifeform: btw 'binaries' are not merely 'un-ascii' but include intrinsic unprintables (control chars)
asciilifeform: so it isn't an ascii vs utf fight
mircea_popescu: but on what basis does this particular alphabet exist.
asciilifeform: on the basis of the fella who build the vt100
asciilifeform: ask him, not me.
asciilifeform: some codes were reserved for line feed, dinging the bell (yes), etc.
mircea_popescu: right.
asciilifeform: cat /dev/random and see what you get.
asciilifeform: or some other source of binaryrubbish
asciilifeform: you will even notice that sometimes this results in a permanently b0rk3d terminal.
kakobrekla: happens when i tail the wrong thing.
mircea_popescu: right ?
asciilifeform: aha.
mircea_popescu: so then how do you resolve this ?
asciilifeform: by out of band sign.
mircea_popescu: mno.
mircea_popescu: the fact that your cat /dev/random breaks things is PROOF that you are already using something like "hash" in your file.
asciilifeform: or with magical fairy dust.
asciilifeform: wai wat
punkman: best thing you can do with text encodings is guess
mircea_popescu: there is necessarily no difference, at the conceptual level we're discussing, between "don't put hash in file" and "ascii doesn't exist"
asciilifeform: throwing garbage into a vt100-compatible terminal breaks things for reasons that are not mysterious at all. rtfm?
mircea_popescu: manuals don't matter.
asciilifeform: terminal has state.
mircea_popescu: i can write a manual for how to interact with my file with hashes in it
asciilifeform: and various oddities not really used in modern times.
mircea_popescu: "explosion of complexity", ie, the need for manuals.
asciilifeform: ok back to the example
asciilifeform: say we ask that a file carry hash in a header.
asciilifeform: IT CANNOT BE THE SAME FORMAT FOR bins and text
mircea_popescu: im not really interested in the practical example, but in the theoretical objection.
asciilifeform: because if we deal with the insides of any text, ever, we suddenly get line-endings and escapes and crapola
asciilifeform: this is the objection
asciilifeform: cannot be oblivious of payload
asciilifeform: cannot rehash just by cat file | sha512sum
asciilifeform: now have to put in a whole paragraph of sed, tr, and other potentially drepperized utils
asciilifeform: (i, for instance, know of two separate exploitable bugs in 'strings'.)
mircea_popescu: so you're not really defending a principle, you're just saying "we already have all the complexity for X idiocy, and not for Y idiocy, thus X i won't notice and Y i'll reject"
asciilifeform: no.
mircea_popescu: then speak to it.
asciilifeform: the present scheme has intrinsically fewer moving parts.
asciilifeform: and is more oblivious of contents.
asciilifeform: ergo superior.
mircea_popescu: but by that same principle, ascii is an unacceptable convention.
asciilifeform: whereas the alternative is only even contemplated because pgp is retarded.
asciilifeform: ascii is retarded. complain to the central committee, or who was it.
asciilifeform: ckkpss.
mircea_popescu: so you agree that actually ascii is dumb and has no place in computing ?
asciilifeform: sure is.
mircea_popescu: and utf-8, or whatever other unfixed width translation scheme, is the right approach ?
asciilifeform: it still won't display /dev/random
asciilifeform: meaningfully
asciilifeform: btw, in-band signalling is precisely why an animal like 'backspace' is a character
asciilifeform: or line-end
asciilifeform: etc
asciilifeform: iirc tcp as originally proposed had a second channel for virtual 'out of band' ! but was never used.
asciilifeform: by anyone.
asciilifeform: because 'eh why'd we need that!'
mircea_popescu: im starting to think there's really a lot more than meets my eye.
asciilifeform: there sure is
mircea_popescu: here*
mircea_popescu: but ascii is eminently A REDUCTION of complexity!
mircea_popescu: and tcp with 2nd chan did not catch on precisely because added complexity.
asciilifeform: or so it appeared.
mircea_popescu: it still does. to this very day.
asciilifeform: the question of 'which road to take to ultimately get fewer moving parts' is the mega-question in all engineering
mircea_popescu: they got python to work with it in six weeks over pizza, and they still don't have python that works with special chars
mircea_popescu: ten years of trying late.rt
asciilifeform: but ten years of who..
mircea_popescu: supposedly some of the original crew at least for part of it
asciilifeform: aha.
