BingoBoingo: !up massiro
massiro: thank you.
massiro: <mircea_popescu> said "isolated from the network".
massiro: this reminds me of sending tx with a high-S value.
massiro: latest nodes never accept high-S value transactions and never relays it.
massiro: i'm suspecting <mircea_popescu> is using an old client and the old client makes txes with high-S values.
danielpbarron: !s low-s
assbot: 15 results for 'low-s' :
massiro: low-S is in the signature <R,S>
BingoBoingo: massiro: creates either s, sometimes high, others low
massiro: in the past, the-eth-scam payout with txid ebc5d768... was using high-S, and modified/accepted txid 09e82c06... was with low-S.
massiro: <BingoBoingo> yes.
massiro: S should be less than 0x7FFFFFFF... to be relayed by the network now.
massiro: if S is greater, doing S' = 0xFFFFFFFF FFFFFFFF FFFFFFFF FFFFFFFE BAAEDCE6 AF48A03B BFD25E8C D0364141 - S will fix it.
assbot: bips/bip-0062.mediawiki at master · bitcoin/bips · GitHub ... ( )
massiro: If we make high-S txes, it never be relayed/mined by latest nodes.
danielpbarron: !s Wuille
assbot: 25 results for 'Wuille' :
massiro: and somebody will modify high-S to low-S. and the wallet will be corrupted.
massiro: i cannot see the content of e6b8aa9d... but it may have a high-S value.
massiro: in fact ebc5d768... was a "high-S" tx and the-eth-scam payout used ebc5d768 as input.
massiro: low-S-modified 09e82c06 was mined, so ebc5d768 became double spending.
BingoBoingo: !up massiro ty
massiro: So the solution is to use the latest client.
danielpbarron: what is the latest client?
ben_vulpes: solution imho is to make not mining these transactions economically suicidal
massiro: <danielpbarron> Bitcoin Core 0.11.2 .
danielpbarron: massiro, are you not familiar with ?
assbot: ..::[ The Bitcoin Foundation ]::.. ... ( )
massiro: <danielpbarron>, i know it a little... that may create high-S.
massiro: If we don't want to use the latest client, we could do "createrawtransaction" and "signrawtransaction", check whether is has high-S or not by our eyes, and do "sendrawtransaction" to the network.
danielpbarron: heh, we don't.
massiro: <danielpbarron>, hahaha...
danielpbarron: so do you bet on bitbet?
massiro: yes.
massiro: sometimes.
danielpbarron: blissfully unware of the politics of bitcoin until it gets in the way of a payout?
massiro: I have known the politics at some extent...
massiro: and I think I'm conservative side such as a block size.

I would like details of how *exactly* X talks to the hardware (Cee sources, yeah) and a large, obvious table as to what all the error codes / X requests are.

gabriel_laddel: is really cool btw, thanks for the link.
phf: gabriel_laddel: perhaps if you stated your problem! xlib is a handful of operations on top of blit, where zen emulates those same operations using opengl. exact details of x talking to hardware is completely outside of scope of xlib, since the whole point is abstract those away.
gabriel_laddel: Unfortunately I may need to poke around "under the hood". There are two showstopping bugs in CLIM that crash the connection to the X server, and it is unclear why.
gabriel_laddel: That said, I've not really poked around the call stack. Could be missing something obvious.

mircea_popescu: << yeah, and this'd be a problem, apparently.
assbot: Logged on 09-01-2016 05:10:42; massiro: latest nodes never accept high-S value transactions and never relays it.
mircea_popescu: thestringpuller bt is your friend
thestringpuller: wait, if a high-S value transaction is written to block does that affect future tx's?
massiro: thestringpuller, once written in a block, it is valid because consensus is unchanged.
massiro: consensus is unchanged but the latest nodes never relay/mine high-S tx.
thestringpuller: okay now I see. yea anything after this was pulled there is a low-s threshold
thestringpuller: i wonder if that caused the wallet issue? spend tx, confirmed under different hash, wallet is now borked?
thestringpuller: mircea_popescu: i still need to run gdb to run bt no?
mircea_popescu: thestringpuller that was kakobrekla's theory as to what the problem was previously. however currently, there's a transaction that has 100 confirms, and it's being spent, and it still doesn't get through. so no, that couldn't be it.
thestringpuller: the power rangers seem to break more stuff than they fix
mircea_popescu: consensus!!111
mircea_popescu: hey everyone : do you realise NEXT time you all "consensus" idly over some stupidity, it may mean MORE than 600 btc delayed for MORE than a week because of your agreement to "changes" ?
mircea_popescu: fucking stop and think about sometime before you agree with usg's moles about ever novel ways to fuck up the one thing that threatens their continuous existence.
massiro: "there's a transaction that has 100 confirms" << what is the txid? this? : 09e82c06cc5fbe3c0f2c2b6a1f575e8ecbb2a92bb493ca3a318525b1eeabe2bd

mircea_popescu: that's what we're currently trying to debug. why the e6b8 one, which spends a single input from the 83e2 one, is not making it through.

thestringpuller: cause if tx is malleable and txid changes, you'll see it change in real time
thestringpuller: but addresses will still get their money
thestringpuller: ugh. i can't even.
mircea_popescu: you're not supposed to use "txids" for anything, but whatever. as discussed yest, this goes up all the way.
mircea_popescu: << sadly this system is like a tango of six things together, and one of them got way ahead of the others. especially of the block subsidy, which is still way WAY WAY too high.

punkman: mircea_popescu: i've been broadcasting it all night to the trb nodes, you can ask any of them, they should still have it in the memory. << they seem to be rejecting it, so maybe pastebin the raw transaction
mircea_popescu: mno, they accepted one and rejected the rest (which is unsurprising for trb, seeing how the rest were chained on the one)
massiro: could you issue "getrawtransaction e6b8aa9dedef74a7e8961e0d997aebc35aae3c8e762a715336d84b39507c9773"

punkman: mircea_popescu: likely nobody has e6b8aa9ded in their mempool
mircea_popescu: punkman we know for a fact everyone in trb DOES have it in their mempool, actually.
mircea_popescu: this was established last night.

mircea_popescu: s +- 100. i think it can be safely concluded that the number they report is simply a marketing gimmick, not connected to anything.
thestringpuller: so in make file I ad -g?
jurov: yes, to CFLAGS

thestringpuller: mircea_popescu: i kno. i'm just speculating madly. i keep getting "Illegal Instruction" so it just feels weird.
mircea_popescu: that's usually a sure sign of a bit of asm being unsuported.
mircea_popescu: the codebase does include some choice asm bits if memory serves.
mircea_popescu: alternatively : have you done the noob mistake of compiling for / on one platform, and trying to run on another ?
mircea_popescu: (this extends all the way to all the libraries involved, obv.)
thestringpuller: i'm compiling on the same machine I'm running it on. did the whole stator+rotor build here
thestringpuller: so i figured it only assemble something. maybe gcc is borked?!?

thestringpuller: how far does the rabbit hole go?

mircea_popescu: shinohai it is a double-spend. all malleated txids are.
shinohai: And so trb is at a crossroads :/
mircea_popescu: i must say this has been a very instructive experience.
shinohai: No one seems to be bitching and crying "scam" and "haxxored" on btctalk anymore so all is well.
mircea_popescu: there's a thing about centralisation in that, i suspect.
mircea_popescu: turns out centralisation helps when it's a case of "well bitbet goes to mp and mp runs a lot of other things and so... nope." people who only run one thing have it a lot worse.

BingoBoingo: "Back in 2011, we tested mayonnaise as a thermal interface between the CPU and the base of the cooler. Amazingly, it worked nicely, proving to be, at least in a short term, a better thermal compound than several well-known commercial products. But, at the time, we could not determine how long it would continue to work before a degradation in performance was noted."
BingoBoingo: The answer was apparently not only does it not last, it oxidizes the interface surfaces.
punkman: "surprising"

BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: Well the part where getting big lottery payouts from illinois would involve litigation. Even in the games where the jackpot is pooled with other states. Winning ticket would mean potential for you to sue and force state governments to sue each other.

mircea_popescu: the problem with this theory is that it has very low predictive power.

mircea_popescu: but yeh, nice script you got there trinque
saifedean: good evening, everyone!

saifedean: lebanon is as it always is, mundanely on the precipice of exploding
saifedean: people hating each other and religious wars escalating everywhere... but... you know... the party must go on
saifedean: unfortunately i'm not there for the next few months, moved to Windsor, Ontario, of all fucking places, the exact opposite of Lebanon if ever there was one
mircea_popescu: who the fuck lives in ontario for the winter and in damascus for the civil war.
saifedean: haha, well-put
saifedean: well, the wife is due to deliver our first child in the next month or so, and we decided to come give birth here where my in-laws are, ensuring the girl gets the Canadian passport
saifedean: it's not the most exciting place in the world, but it's across the river from detroit, which stands as a constant reminded that shit could be worse
mircea_popescu: i can see it.
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 21950 @ 0.00047254 = 10.3723 BTC [-] {6}
saifedean: this place is so deadly boring it's unreal, but at least it's not a terribly cold winter, and I'm getting plenty of reading done... Also, it's not like you need much excitement to add to your life when you're expecting
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 6750 @ 0.00047125 = 3.1809 BTC [-] {3}
mircea_popescu: well... the woman's expecting. you're just reading.
saifedean: well, not quite, there's a surprisingly large amount of stuff to do, learn, and decide if you choose not to hand over the entire process to the medical bezzle
mircea_popescu: o, that.
saifedean: this has been an enormously edifying experience... most important lesson learned is that handing over a pregnant woman to a hospital and obgyn is fucking nuts
saifedean: the bezzle has completely destroyed people's conception of what birth is
saifedean: it's treated like an emergency like a car crash, when it's a natural process like sex
mircea_popescu: and the internet has ruined people's idea of what makes good storytelling. don't summarize, be specific.
saifedean: trying to give birth in hospital makes as much sense as trying to have sex there
mircea_popescu: you never banged in a hosptial ?
mircea_popescu: dead people make me horny.
saifedean: essentially: if a woman is left on her own in a comfortable setting with the father, her body will do all the work and pop the baby out painlessly and even pleasurably, the baby comes out healthy and looks for the tit to feed, it stays connected to the umbilical chord and placenta for a few days, the placenta empties all the nutrients and blood into the baby, and the baby grows healthy
saifedean: all the complications of birth come precisely from the medical bezzle trying to barge in on this natural process to make a buck, basically
mircea_popescu: look into "health" circumcision sometime.
mircea_popescu: but anyway. natural birth has a huge following in the states. almost unknown in yurp.
saifedean: they'll whisk her in an ambulance and freak the shit out of her, causing her vagina to contract just when it needs to expand. this then necessitates painful pushing, which usually doesn't work, necessitating cutting up and stitching, the baby comes out bloody and bruised and the woman can't breastfeed for hours, which will then destroy the baby's ability to latch properly
saifedean: and most brutally, the fucking doctor wanting to go home quickly means he'll cut the umbilical chord immediately, suffocating the child and depriving him of about a third of his blood
saifedean: this for me is the difference between the barbarian and civilized humans today: the civilized have the time and choice to wait on the placenta to empty into the baby. The barbarians are told by the doctor the placenta should be cut immediately
mircea_popescu: who the fuck goes to the maternity ward in an ambulance ?!
saifedean: people with insurance, that's who
mircea_popescu: no way. srsly ?!
saifedean: "you don't wanna take chances with your baby's health"
mircea_popescu: there can't be enough fucking ambulances.
saifedean: the stuff you learn will blow your mind
saifedean: also, the post-birth interventions they do in the medical bezzle are astonishing... within an hour or so, the baby wil have had a vaccine against Hepatitis B, which I guess makes sense if you intend to pimp the child out in the first week. they'll give them an eye drop to protect against the possibility of the mom having chlamydia, regardless of whether she has it or not, thus destroying the child's vision for a few days..
saifedean: and then, the coup de grace, they give him a little sugar in the first hour to drug him and stop him crying from being separated from his mom while they do all the bezzle they wanna do
mircea_popescu: o yeah, the whole first day vaccination business is both novel and outrageous.
saifedean: all of which is not just unnecessary, but actively harmful. the child needs absolutely nothing in their first hours except their mom's milk. They need nothing for the first 6 months except her milk and sunshine
mircea_popescu: not all kids actually want to eat immediately.
saifedean: but the interventionist bezzle logic we have all come to know and love from economics is applied with vigor at birth, producing mentally, physically and emotionally stunted idiots ready for the modern world's demands
saifedean: breastfeeding in the first hour is essential for the child and for the mom's breasts, it's part of the birth process
mircea_popescu: not all women actually can breastfeed altogether.
saifedean: the child should learn to latch onto the tit before anything else. In the fucking bezzle they give them the pacifier before the tit, and then they'll never latch properly... which happily enough creates endless business for Gerber and other peddlers of poison
asciilifeform: !up saifedean
mircea_popescu: !gettrust assbot saifedean
assbot: saifedean is not registered in WoT.
saifedean: if she can get pregnant, she can breastfeed, it's all part of the same package
mircea_popescu: heh if only. if you can get it up, you can make her come, too ?
saifedean: the problems of breastfeeding all come from the mom not being given the child to breastfeed immediately
saifedean: inaccurate analogy, since she's another human. but if her body can carry a baby for 9 months, and if she eats well and takes care of herself, she will get milk
saifedean: she could fuck it all up of course, but it takes deliberate human fuckery to stop her breastfeeding
mircea_popescu: it's a body, anything in it can not work.
saifedean: and of course, a big, big part of this is diet, what the mom eats before, during, and after pregnancy
mircea_popescu: or whether she has a tyroid condition. or cystic ovaries. or or or.
saifedean: if you can get your dick up, you can fuck with it. Doesn't mean you will... you could still fuck it up.
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [RENT] 556 @ 0.0042 = 2.3352 BTC [+]
saifedean: she's got to actively fuck it up for her to not breastfeed... look at all real world examples, and you find a woman who ate shit, or who had a caesarian and didn't bother try breastfeeding for a few days, or as is usually the case, a woman who just can't be bothered and came up wiht a story
mircea_popescu: looky, i appreciate the youthful activist and half-doctor approach, but srsly, talk to an actual clinician. it doesn't always work. it sucks that it doesn't, it's maybe overreported, it's often just fancies in the woman's head, but not always. sometimes it dun work.
saifedean: of course the medical bezzle is always happy to oblige with "conditions"
saifedean: appreciate the faith in your clinician, but don't listen to those guys if you're having a child of your own, they're not in it for your benefit, they have med school loans to pay
saifedean: and they can't pay them if they deviate from the script...
trinque: I'll give it a coupla drops of truth in a bucket of rhetoric
saifedean: do you also talk to an economist phd to get your perspective on Bitcoin?
mircea_popescu: heh, i knew doctors with half century's experience before money was even fucking invented, you kidding me ?

mircea_popescu: isnt that the chick at war with the fda over the whole raw milk thing ?
saifedean: you'll find it in pdf online if you look; reading it is a far better use of your time than arguing!
saifedean: among many other wars, yes!
mircea_popescu: here's a fun fact : you can buy raw milk in romania from a fucking machine.
saifedean: are you familiar with Weston Price?
mircea_popescu: ~euro a liter.
mircea_popescu: not particularly.
saifedean: That muthafucka knew his shit
mircea_popescu: anyway, all these nitwits that aren't from cattle country don't know wtf milk is, even.
mircea_popescu: they do a lot of diary in lebanon don't they ?
saifedean: it's a travesty that he's been completely forgotten... he's basically the Mises of nutrition
saifedean: yeah they do
asciilifeform: phun phakt: the 'antivax' hippie folk won in usa west coast. where there are now pandemics of crippling nasties (rubella, etc) last seen in 1940s
mircea_popescu: yeah. "o my god raw milk". herp.
saifedean: Weston Price traveled the world for decades observing different cultures and their foods and examining the link with health and degeneration... pretty startling stuff
saifedean: raw milk is not that interesting an issue, ignore it
saifedean: but do read Weston Price's Nutrition and Physical Degeneration
saifedean: the internet has that somewhere, too
mircea_popescu: it's pretty funny. "science!!1"
saifedean: weren't you the one who wrote a post about how dumb it is to be hostile to things you do not know about?
mircea_popescu: seems likely. which one ?
asciilifeform: there is a surprisingly rich set of literature in... alchemy
saifedean: can't remember the post, but it stuck with me and has saved me plenty of time by always ignoring arguments from people hostile to things they don't know... mainly bitcoin and health, funnily enough
mircea_popescu: anyway, i was discussing whether raw milk is interesting or not. it's interesting, to me, because lol.
saifedean: yes asciilifeform, there is, by the sort of people who invented basically all the science and knowledge that got us out of swimming in our own shit in the jungle!
saifedean: i've never had raw milk, don't know a source i can trust in lebanon, and it's illegal to buy it here in Ontario!
mircea_popescu: what, seriously ?!
mircea_popescu: you ever milked a cow ?
saifedean: Isaac Newton was an alchemist primarily, physics and chemistry were the languages he used to speak to the plebs
saifedean: nope, never milked a cow...
mircea_popescu: and you call yourself a lebanonesian ?!
mircea_popescu: anyway. i milked a cow. prolly can still do it.
asciilifeform: saifedean: aha. but for some reason i have yet to meet a practicing physicist who read newton's alchemical works.
saifedean: i ain't even lebanonesian, bro. I'm actually palestinian
mircea_popescu: ah right that explains it!
asciilifeform worked for a palestinian fella for many years
saifedean: it's sad that your physicist friends havent read alchemists, but i'm gonna go ahead and guess that's sad for them, not for the alchemists... here's a list of actual aclhemists, imagine where you'd be without their contributions to your life!
assbot: List of alchemists - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia ... ( )
mircea_popescu: honestly, to me all this sorta stuff, much like the "eu legislation" on "contaminated animal productS" ie, edible cheese, is a case of derpy dudes thinking chickens come out of the supermarket.
asciilifeform: saifedean: 'civilization begins with distillation' (tm) (r) (falkner) aha
asciilifeform: but where the hell is my philosopher's stone.
mircea_popescu: and i certainly aren't about to read some anglo derps on how and what to eat.
mircea_popescu: for one thing, i still have latin.
saifedean: ah, if only they sold that on amazon ascii
mircea_popescu: for another... what the fuck, i didn't grow up in a hole.
mircea_popescu: to quote disraeli, "who are you people again ?"
saifedean: the problem with this sort of debate is that i've lived the life of the cake-munching sugar-addled modern nutrition believing fatty, and i've tried the opposite... which makes this conversation difficult
saifedean: latin, after all, came from a sedentary agricultural society of grain-addicted fatties... you wanna look at pre-agricultural societies to see how to really be well-fed
saifedean: unfortunately those people don't write, but fortunately, some people who do write have studied them... like weston price
saifedean: who, in his defense, was not even american... he was my ontario homeboy
mircea_popescu: you've tried the opposite but never suckled off a cow.
mircea_popescu: what makes the discussion difficult is the significant chasm between what'd you want and what actrually is there.
saifedean: no, but i've had raw liver, which is much better :)
mircea_popescu: "i never had x but had y which is much better" is what you said to me ? how the fuck'd you know!
saifedean: look, i'd love to try good raw milk, and if you can hook a brother up, let me know... but, you know, it ain't the be all end all of human knowledge
punkman: /me is considering kokorec leftovers for breakfast
mircea_popescu: alright... ever had woman milk ?
saifedean: yes, my mother's
mircea_popescu: not your mother's. as an adult!
saifedean: did the job, im alive and healthy
saifedean: but no, not as an adult
mircea_popescu: dude... cows, ok, i can see, they don't grow everywhere.
mircea_popescu: but women are literally ubiquitous.
mircea_popescu: less reading more suckling ok ?

punkman: saifedean: greece
saifedean: what's your deal with milk mircea?
punkman: grandma always boiled the raw milk, I'm sticking with that
mircea_popescu: !up saifedean
mircea_popescu: wow check it out, it was its own province, girit
mircea_popescu: saifedean my deal ? whole thing started from it neh
saifedean: milk's essential for kids, for at least a year, but i'm honestly not convinced grown-ups should even be drinking it, weston price be damned

saifedean: animal fats and meat is all a man needs
mircea_popescu: eh how'd you know. at least that dude has the excuse of a lot of bad dinners all over.
saifedean: the last two months i've basically eaten nothing but fatty meat, never been healthier
mircea_popescu: you should be an alchemist and write great books on theoretical physics.
mircea_popescu: for my part, for the past two weeks i've only been slapping butts with my left hand and i've never been taller.
saifedean: gotta finish popping babies and feeding them properly first, then focus on econ, then alchemy... theoretical physics does not interest me much
trinque: !b 4
assbot: Last 4 lines bashed and pending review. ( )
asciilifeform: saifedean would get on well with funkenstein, i think.
mircea_popescu: my money says they'd find a point of principle to disagree on and not be on speaking terms.
asciilifeform: and hey also orlov.
saifedean: who's funkenstein and does he paleo?
danielpbarron: mircea_popescu> here's a fun fact : you can buy raw milk in romania << same here in Connecticut, the one state in all of the ussa that permits sale outside of a farm
mircea_popescu: danielpbarron technically this was on a farm. the way they sorted it out was that the farm rented 20 sqft from the supermarket, plopped a machine down there. serviced it daily, there's a resident tech that does analytics.
danielpbarron: ah, I can go buy it raw from the store shelf
mircea_popescu: it doesn't keep unrefrigerated, does it.
danielpbarron: i haven't tried to keep it out of the fridge, but it seems to age more gracefully in general
mircea_popescu: certainly can make your own curds.
saifedean: daniel, i didn't know that, might pop across the border next time I'm in NYC to see what it's like
danielpbarron: instead of turning rancid it just turns sour
danielpbarron: saifedean, not many stores sell it; not even whole foods last i checked

mircea_popescu: punkman and another insider joke falls slain by your attentive read!
punkman: asciilifeform: ikr looks obvious now
asciilifeform: btw timisoara absolutely ruled, imho
mircea_popescu: you just liked the gypsy twists.
mircea_popescu: fucking village, doesn't even have a tiny and cramped bdsm club
asciilifeform: it reminded me of home planet.
asciilifeform: climate was exactly right. my eternal allergy stopped, even.
