phf: one way it might help with ascii's problem specifically though is that your client will patiently wait for ascii's node, even though there might be periods of time where it would otherwise be completely unresponsive.
asciilifeform: !up ascii_field
phf: -connect based nodes in large avoid this problems because there's a mainloop that keeps adding same -connect supplied addresses over and over again, so even if elsewhere it's decided to drop the node, it'll be added and reconnected again on the next iteration. never the less a connect node can still be banned for misbehaving, which is something that his patch prevents from happening

punkman: you could make bans on "trusted" nodes expire sooner
ascii_field: waste of time.
phf: punkman: that specific loop can be closed much easier by checking for -connect during misbehave report and bailing
ascii_field: phf: all this will do is that you will waste cpu cycles on peers who are getting packetdropped by usg
ascii_field: (all of the mitm against my nodes has taken the form of vaguely plausibly-deniable packet dropping and delay)
ascii_field: strategic, incidentally, in that it did not trigger 'misbehave' listing on my end
phf: misbehave is only triggered when counterparty sends malformed, but still recognisable packets, so that would be a much more noticeable attack

ascii_field: get a real computer somewhere ?
phf: where's packet dropping and delay results in a no-consequences disconnect, similar to that "no activity in first 60 seconds"
ascii_field: aha
ascii_field: and, importantly, wasted time
ascii_field: as no useful activity can take place while this hangs
ascii_field: because the whole thing was written by the profoundly retarded
phf: well, the patch gives special status to ips that were explicitly provided. if you're being mitm'd, your only recourse is operator intervention, the goal of the patch was to ensure that your recourse does not automatically become "use random shmoe"
ascii_field: the correct recourse is crypto.

ascii_field: mircea_popescu once alluded to a dirty ad-hoc implementation of this by chinese operators, where nodes had vpn links to one another
gernika: ascii_field Thought it was real - 32 GB ecc ram, opteron 4226.
ascii_field: but that is not an adult answer.
ascii_field: gernika: and you were syncing from what?
ascii_field: as in, where did the blocks fed to 'eatblock' come from ?
gernika: both yours and mp's nodes.
ascii_field: in real time ?
ascii_field: i am asking ~specifically~ how the thing was put together
ascii_field: the correct way to use eatblock is with dumpblock coming from an already synced LOCAL node.
ascii_field: this does NOT take 3 weeks on my hardware.
ascii_field: more like 3 days.
gernika: Right. So I made it to 368xxx and got stuck on the large block syncing from one of your nodes over the network. I then (probably) had a bad shutdown and corrupted the db. I then used eatblock to sync from what I had on disk up to that point.
ascii_field: stuck?
ascii_field: as in, didn't have the bdb locks fix patch applied ?
gernika: wedged - due to not having the patch yes
ascii_field: then burn the whole thing & start over
ascii_field: srsly
ascii_field: let me guess, of the 3 weeks, most of the time was spent wedged ?
gernika: The node was not on the network, it was just eating from disk. It did not appear wedged, just processing one block after another.
ascii_field: but was the entire blockchain already present on disk to be eaten?
ascii_field: what i am asking is, did it at any point spend time waiting for an edible block to appear on disk.
gernika: Yes it did. I did not dump all.dat files at once. I would dump one, eat through it (in about 24 hours), then dump the next.
ascii_field: how much time spent on the dumps ?
ascii_field: (as distinct from the eating)
gernika: a couple of minutes.
ascii_field: the other important question is whether the node being synced was also accessing the net at the time
ascii_field: (eatblock is a locking operation)
gernika: It was started like this bitcoind -myip=x.x.x.x -caneat -datadir=/home/gernika/.bitcoin-8-14/
phf: gernika: you know if the addr db empty? if you did a connect with that node at any point, it'll have a populated address database and start connecting immediately on startup
phf: i don't have intuition for complete eatblock time, but 3 weeks does sound like surprisingly long time, even with all the checks enabled
gernika: It might not have been empty. That said, I didn't see the noise in the logs I would expect to see if it were connected to another node.

asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: as i understood it, he was speaking of signing manifests
asciilifeform: but this way, a release is simply a vpatch that adds a 'this is part of such-and-such release' comment to a set of files in such a way that the desired leaves are brought into the release.
