mircea_popescu: the value proposition of ashley madison reads something likle "you too can be ALMOST like one of those dudes that cheats on his wife. except, you won't ever get caught, because... you're not ACTUALLY doing it"
mircea_popescu: which is why the breach is particularly ruinous to them. as seinfeld said, "that's why divorce is so traumatic : you've been impeached, and i wasn't even the president!"
mircea_popescu: there might have been some hookers working the cream off the top, those 1-2% oif males that finally got the nerve together to actually GASP!~1 meet someone after 10 or so years of derping around on the site.
mircea_popescu: on the other hand, given the stolid stupidity of those chicks on or w/e offered bitcoin.... safer bet is "no".
BingoBoingo: Ashley Madison at some point took in serious fiat though. They had prominent TV ads which means either VC suckers or customer suckers
mircea_popescu: vc suckers.
BingoBoingo: Could be both, seems they hooked Tony Blair
mircea_popescu: males are notoriously stupid.
mircea_popescu: the only reason there isn't a cock eating rock somewhere is pure chance. otherwise, if it offered a hole, it'd eat well enough.
BingoBoingo: Of course. I mean Mr. Tusk fucked the shit out of that penguin.
BingoBoingo: re:walrus can not reccoment Kevin SMith's 'Tusk' enough, because... [spoiler redacted]
BingoBoingo: Yes plenty of CanadiaMerican retardation, but... actually the five line synopis and punchline may be enough

assbot: Logged on 04-06-2014 00:08:26; asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: the buggers' traditional defense is to pretend that the event was a non-event - or, if this is impractical, to continue living in an imaginary world where they 'scooped' the story first, and all of the 'unsanctioned' discussion never happened.

mircea_popescu: hearn was added to support gavin almost as soon as gavin did his "presentation" at cia.
ascii_field: this i recall.
mircea_popescu: but they were, according to usg, unknown. only recently were they moved from field to embassy duty

felipelalli: if Bitcoin Core pushes forward to increase the block size, how to resist to it if the miners decide to support the fork? Any other version unsupported by the miners would be very vulnerable to attacks from the fork side?

ascii_field: ^ was why i got out of biology
mircea_popescu: this is a fine approach for computer viruses. for very good reasons i won't go into for the sake of not boring everyone.
mircea_popescu: but it is a bad approach for actual microbiology. because, again, saltus.
mircea_popescu: !up mynameismud
kakobrekla: yeah looking into it, checked and old backup copy of the file - still slow
ascii_field: mircea_popescu: funnily, the saltus thing is applicable to modern crapware written by morons who slavishly copy one another with minor variations
mircea_popescu: kakobrekla i use the log daily and the problem only started maybe 2 days ago. somehow.
mircea_popescu: ascii_field yes, because biology creeps in.
mircea_popescu: it's also applicabe to things like "internet websites", for the same reason. hence the b-something comment above.

mircea_popescu: kakobrekla nope, still eats memory.
kakobrekla: this now is 1 month old file
kakobrekla: so its not my code and wtf.
mircea_popescu: kakobrekla specifically what was i testing ? right ?
mircea_popescu: could there be a cache involved ?
mircea_popescu: but i guarantee this was not present 1 month ago, or even a week ago.
mircea_popescu: because i bitched within 5 minutes.
kakobrekla: i started noticing a slowdown 7-10 days ago
ascii_field: it started on or very close to the hour when the colours were introduced.

kakobrekla: all i replaced was .css
felipelalli: mircea_popescu, thank you for the links! I was trying to find something relevant on log but I didn't so far.
trinque: some css selectors can be heavy to apply
mircea_popescu: trinque the file i uploaded uses the same css the not working log used tho, and worked fine!@
trinque: could be heavy depending on the structure of the markup
mircea_popescu: but i suppose it could be some mysterious css/js interaction
trinque: cause it has to search the whole DOM tree
mircea_popescu: it clearly looked like a badly done recursive search
trinque: can be narrowed by specifying IDs, using > to specify "just immediate child" etc
trinque: yep
mircea_popescu: i guess it COULD be that it actually rejected the provided ids "because they start with digit" and ending up with a soup ?
mircea_popescu: which...
trinque: it's one of those giant monstrosities that every simple question is hard to answer

mircea_popescu: incidentally, re : it occurs to me that this situation is not just pseudo-exchanges and fake dating sites etc. this is universally true of the web.
assbot: Logged on 20-08-2015 03:59:34; mircea_popescu: re the ashley madison thing, i believe it chiefly provides the same service faux exchanges etc provide to the click-bound generation. ie, they get to pretend like they're traders, don juans, what not, all from the safety of their own den, and - crucially - without actually doing it.
mircea_popescu: which is to say : there's two webs. one is the original web, which exclusively consists of non-interactive http served documents. this is the same it always was, more or less.
kakobrekla: a 'missing' 'overflow: hidden' was the cause
mircea_popescu: then there's a secopnd web, to use its own terminology web2.0. this is composed of ALL the sites that uses https, for any purpose. such as "logins" as if that makes any sense.
mircea_popescu: these, without exception, are populated by idiots. without exception i say.
kakobrekla: how ? dunno, nobody could have foreseen.

trinque: "reflow" is a bitch
kakobrekla: possibly

felipelalli: mircea_popescu, I read your articles. Actually I had read some parts before, but I read all over again. Unfortunately I didn't find the answer to my question. I understand that if miners just point to a "Scamcoin" (fork from Bitcoin) this is not Bitcoin, of course. But having them more hashpower, and the same type of hash function, this does not make the actual Bitcoin an "altcoin" and them vulnerable to attacks? (following the
felipelalli: idea of that other article of yours "The woes of Altcoin, or why there is no such thing as "cryptocurrencies"")
ascii_field: trinque: aha.
trinque: but then the agency there is just a metaphor, so I can see the argument that nothing was "taken over"
felipelalli: mircea_popescu, in other words: the decision of majority of miners could literally kill the actual Bitcoin. Make it unusable.

mike_c: this is not unusable.

mircea_popescu: what's to keep him from doing this ?
felipelalli: mircea_popescu, I fully understood your point on that part, but it does not answer what if the miners decide to attack the actual Bitcoin making double spends, reverting transactions etc. They'll have this power. Read

felipelalli: punkman, this is true, and this is my main use of Bitcoin. I wouldn't be affected. Good point. But this is a little contradictory with the article "there is no such thing as cryptocurrencies". The idea is "There Can Be Only One"

mircea_popescu: christianity took over the decaying roman empire as the most concise, most popular embodiment of their hope and aspiration. the only such remaining - that even as they've failed, they still must survive "for there's nothing else".

ascii_field: one hypothesis of mine is that the 'anti-bomb' will help not at all unless dropped ~prior~ to the s-bomb
ascii_field: because proscribing the blocks later won't un-stampede the sell-panickers
ascii_field: and won't un-mix the mixed s-coin when it ends up everywhere
mircea_popescu: since we're doing nonsense ("you can't teach a class in nonsense. but the history of nonsnese - that's scholarship!"), can anyone explain why exactly would a hard fork not start with its own genesis ? outside of the fundamentally fraudulent, pious or otherwise, attempt to pretend like it's something it is most assuredly not ?
ascii_field: mircea_popescu: only reason is to hitch a phree ride on the existing allocations
mircea_popescu: so basically, free fork === new genesis block anyway.
ascii_field: rather than deal with premining (or accusations thereof) and the whole orchestra.
punkman: you can't fork the chain at genesis
mircea_popescu: so basically, hard fork === new genesis block anyway.
mircea_popescu: ascii_field youre not required to starty it at 1 diff.
ascii_field: regardless of where you start the diff,
mircea_popescu: all the altcoin scammers ever did, of course, but for a very transparent reason.
ascii_field: early miners have massive advantage.
ascii_field: well, you can't start at ~very~ massive diff
mircea_popescu: why not ?
ascii_field: because then you get millenium-long block times
mircea_popescu: "here's the hard fork. mine the first block or go away"
ascii_field: (with the hash power typically available to a forker)
mircea_popescu: that'd have been the HONEST approach to xt, were xt actually powered by the stuff they claim it to be powered by.
mircea_popescu: if genuinely users were constricted by nonsensical rules which inept conservatives maintained out of sheer lunacy,
mircea_popescu: then they could always have done it properly, like above. heck, they still do.
mircea_popescu: "oh, millenium times" what the fuck derp argument is that. you get the same 25 btc for mining a block, here or there. each hash is worth the same.
ascii_field: a fork that doesn't switch workfunction is ipso facto a fraud
mircea_popescu: it COULD just switch genesis.

mircea_popescu: yeah agreed punkman

mircea_popescu: much what alf was sayin
punkman: you can convert between \r, \r\n and \n without problems though
mircea_popescu: still, these perfectly valid technical objections aside - signed is deeply inferior to clearsigned. this is a fact, and it won't change.
mircea_popescu: the correct solution is to reimplement pgp and make it behave re clearsign.
punkman: I was also trying to make a point about the |GPG| prefix being useless
mircea_popescu: well, no. it works as intended : if you extract all the prefixed lines and wipe the prefix, you get the original text.
punkman: it'd have worked with dashes just as well
mircea_popescu: no, because diff creates --- lines

asciilifeform: it is the name for, in this case, the monkeyrape
mircea_popescu: "A group of fat-shaming gamers " << how does that work ?
asciilifeform: or orwell's 'spanish armada sank' vs chesterton's 'fuck off'
mircea_popescu: dude wtf, nobody went to school or something. here's some word soup for you!
BingoBoingo: Gotta counter that double speak with triple listen
asciilifeform: (chesterton, naturally, as stand-in for his imagined opposition)
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo ahaha
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i don't think chesterton thought anything about orwell past "hack".
mircea_popescu: in fact, the only actual attention orwell has, at any point, enjoyed, is in the fringe of 1984 afficionados, which suddenly saw itself bitcoinized into relevancy cca 2010. otherwise...
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: considering that c died while mr o was a grunt in spain and had total of what, 100 pgs, printed
mircea_popescu: i don't think anyone ever think he's even 2nd rate.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i never got the impression that o had pretences to 'great'. he wrote for the archaeologist. as i do.
asciilifeform: message in a bottle.
mircea_popescu: hard to say exactly. and im too disinterested to go on a orwell bio kick.
asciilifeform: wrote because the choices are 'write into a bottle' or 'eat bullet'
mircea_popescu: i suspect it's more the case that "wrote because i am wrong, and i know i am wrong, and if i don't write i can't sleep."
asciilifeform: same thing
mircea_popescu: "but if i do write i sometimes can also pretend like i don't know that i'm wrong."
mircea_popescu: no, not the same thing.

asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: 'wrote because i am wrong' is imho correct, but in the ~literal~ sense. as in 'my whole existence is an uncorrectable wrong'
mircea_popescu: i dun get teh hate. chick owns her camera. wut ?
asciilifeform: which is why i say that he had no option but 'write' or 'eat nagant'
mircea_popescu: no, this is not the case. he was just stupid.
mircea_popescu: not that he didn't know better, either.
asciilifeform: gimme a smart gedankenorwell then

asciilifeform: frog only knows how to say one thing: 'i am frog'

phf: james lafond incidentally wrote how old time pubs were places were men could run wild boasts by the others and get called out or not, and that this form of conversation has been lost. seems to me in "consensus" places there's always some fuck ready to butt in into any point, just to make a counterpoint, that it's inconceivable for redditards that there's a dozen reading and thinking without running their mouths
mircea_popescu: phf i dun think it was lost, myself.
mircea_popescu: at the very least it survives in the better prep classes for lawschool.
asciilifeform: it survives (in anglo world) like panda survives. in a zoo or two.
mircea_popescu: what has happened however was a shear (ie, kill the middle). there is no point in carnation lower class men should be engaging in this sport, that's not in any sense their place. not like a random blue collar derp can, through no matter how liberal application of port and tavern-debate, become an engineer.

mircea_popescu: another thing much in the vein of the old time pub function above was the "calificare la locul de munca", the last breath of apprenticeship.

phf: mircea_popescu: i think the idea was imprinted on me through soviet imagery still, of a young pioneer politely and carefully observing an older pioneer performing some tricky task, soldering say. the implication was "this old person, knows better, so shut the fuck up and learn"
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: confirmed!
mircea_popescu: phf sure, but most of the things we do today can't be thus learned.
mircea_popescu: it's a fine way for kittens to learn to mouse, and for young pioneers to learn to solder.
mircea_popescu: but look how terribru the C rms has learned turns out to be.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i prefixed LC_ALL="en_US.UTF-8" ./ and ended up with something quite like mod6's diff.

asciilifeform can abide no more of this, in one sitting. off to play with pet

ben_vulpes: recap plz?
ben_vulpes: i humbly submit for poor log-following canings.
ben_vulpes: but timestamp recap plz? or link?
asciilifeform: basic choices reduce to a) let'em live and pollute diffs b) tear'em out c) copy from filesystem timestamps of originals somehow
ben_vulpes: raaaaaa
ben_vulpes: in output of 'diff'?
asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: see mod6's link earlier.
asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: basic boojum here is that no two diffs ever diff cleanly on account of timestamps.
asciilifeform: try it.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform the timestamps are truly meaningless here.
mircea_popescu: code is timeless or not code.
ben_vulpes: omit.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: they are not ~entirely~ meaningless, in that they impose an ordering. BUT my antecedent hashes do that now.
mircea_popescu: blocktime
mircea_popescu: ironically, it is b-a that has the first and so far only actual application of "blockchain technology"
asciilifeform: at any rate, they can't be removed entirely because epoch0 is 'magic' to diff
asciilifeform: (means absent file)
asciilifeform: but all non-0 stamps could be replaced with some arbitrary.
asciilifeform: though iirc diff will complain whenever a file on the local filesystem is being replaced with 'older'
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 51600 @ 0.000676 = 34.8816 BTC [-]
mircea_popescu: there is that
ben_vulpes: is it me or is that kinda dumb?
mircea_popescu: doesn't it have a switch to supress timestamps in output ?
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: not gnu diff...
asciilifeform: funnily, i was never able to get the custom format string feature in gnu diff to work with the -uNr standard
asciilifeform: it balks.
asciilifeform: go, try.
ben_vulpes: (in other news coracle at 338451)
asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: that thing is on what, a sat dish?
asciilifeform: dialup ?
mircea_popescu: so basically diff is, much like gpg, not actually usable.
mats: whats a coracle
asciilifeform: dingdingding
mircea_popescu: for a long list of reasons, some of which can be diddled
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu is a winner
asciilifeform: mats: stone age fishing boat
mircea_popescu: apparently nobody ever tried to use diff at all,
asciilifeform: mats: think 'tub'
mircea_popescu: which is a harder proposition than nobody ever used gpg.
ben_vulpes: asciilifeform: aws abortion
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: we might be the first to seriously diff a diff
mats: but this context
mircea_popescu: mats the name he gave his node
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform everyone's suggestion seems to be "hey, use perl! bash script! fuck my sister she's a slut anyway!"
ben_vulpes: asciilifeform: the amusing thing is that you seem to think that *you're* the pauper hereabouts
asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: wat
ben_vulpes: with your servers and trunk conections
ben_vulpes: connectinos
ben_vulpes: << you may wait quite a while for that ok, boss
assbot: Logged on 20-08-2015 18:23:28; mike_c: i consider it simply, the foundation says so.
asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: i just have good geography. a benjie a month buys ~80Mbit here
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform hey, would --label fix it ?
ben_vulpes: i don't consider bitcoin production ready in any of the incarnations that i've seen
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: nope
asciilifeform: doesn't affect date
asciilifeform: also recall that not only 'diff' is retarded, but 'patch' !
asciilifeform: they are different sides of the same medal.
mircea_popescu: your vdiff won't be able to be a script.
ben_vulpes: i've taken to using the -d flag with patch *always*
asciilifeform: presently it is a 1liner that invokes classical diff
asciilifeform: and then massages the output
ben_vulpes: otherwise the damn thing can't figure its own arse out from my elbow
asciilifeform: (i assume all have read it by now)
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i have been deliberately dancing around the spitoon-drinking that reimplementing 'diff' and 'patch' would be.
mircea_popescu: vdiff/vpatch.
asciilifeform: oh vpatch is unavoidable
assbot: Logged on 20-08-2015 19:03:57; danielpbarron: << come to think of it, yes my browsers have also been much slower at loading the log ever since the color change
mircea_popescu: yeah. hey, anyone looking for something to do that'd be useful and also an incredible walk on coals ?
asciilifeform: but presently (unpublished) it is ordinary patch and an extra bit to check antecedent
asciilifeform: in ada.
asciilifeform: (walk on coals)
mircea_popescu: haha not in ada, just, they'll have to publish it and we'll go "omfg you can't be this stupid, redo it" like 50 times.
asciilifeform: idk about the lot of you, but i am not inclined to play 'underhanded c contest' for this.
mircea_popescu: which is exactly what's 50% of the conversation in my household for the first x months of the life of a new girl anyway
asciilifeform: betcha mircea_popescu could easily include ada in the gurlz training and no one will notice the difference
ben_vulpes: vacation is over
mircea_popescu: except the one whose name's ada.
ben_vulpes: (hyu!)
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: for her especially this was made.
mircea_popescu: btw, was it actually named for the lucky strike smoker chick ?
asciilifeform: 'this is your terminal, countess lovelace.'
asciilifeform: babbage's gf.
mircea_popescu: secretary!
asciilifeform: sekretute.
asciilifeform: (do you have those in ro?)
mircea_popescu: it's actually what secretary means in romanian.
asciilifeform can picture.
mircea_popescu: (also let me mention here, as this may come as a suprirse to my western friends - that in romanian classical society, as well as for that matter most of eastern europe, as well as for that matter all of europe in an earlier, simpler time - it was the height of poor taste for a woman to refuse sexual congress, and a pointed declaration of personal infirmity. sort-of like saying you can't read without your glasses
mircea_popescu: as such it was both uncommon and undiscussed.)
asciilifeform: but this came with the #include of cocks of low rank not daring to ask
mircea_popescu: mostly, yes. more effectually, it came with the #include that you'll be a father to her kids.
asciilifeform: doesn't work terribly well without both #include
mircea_popescu: well at the time being a father was moreover pleasant.
mircea_popescu: also #included.
mircea_popescu: also, this was mostly before syphilis.
asciilifeform: this also.
mircea_popescu: which - another thing very little known. that importation was the bane of europe.
asciilifeform: pretty well-known!
asciilifeform: what is this
mircea_popescu: i don't think any disaster hence has had such a chilling impact on society.
mircea_popescu: orly ? ask around.
asciilifeform: c'mon, fucking beethoven, even
mircea_popescu: ask.around.
asciilifeform shudders
asciilifeform: the last time i 'asked around', i discovered folks who didn't know who won ww2.
mircea_popescu: then do not protest my rarities!
asciilifeform bbl, eating food
mircea_popescu: fun fact, since for some reason i'm doing history now. romania's head rabi (niemirower) died in 1940. he was succeded by one alex safran, who was 29 at that time. and by virtue of being head rabi, the young man also had an ex officio seat in the romanian senate. but for not being yet 40 years of age as the senate required, he asked for, and obtained, a special derrogation from the high chamber of cassation. and was sea
mircea_popescu: 1940, romania, etc.
