ben_vulpes: i fucking hate my webthing.
mircea_popescu: that;s a good thing.
ben_vulpes: why? people's links will break if i go back and add intervening footnotes.
mircea_popescu: and references break if guy goes back and adds pages in the middle of his book wtf.
mircea_popescu: and if you write "shoez rulez" today and then change it to "shoez sux srsly" next week, people's idea of your idea of shoes also breaks.

ben_vulpes dd's the 10.6 installer onto the flash drive one last time
pete_dushenski: it's wild how much more organised 10.6 is than 10.8. the latter ~always~ bunged up dates. when trying to organise a folder by "date modified", the latest documents would almost invariably end up in their own speshul sub-heading waaay at the bottom of the list under "no date". but then once in a while, not. for whatever reason.

ben_vulpes: pick a side i said.
phf: openbsd patch as written results in a working build on both linux and openbsd. it introduces necessary ifdefs to ensure cross platform support. the only change that it does to makefile is, at least according to my research, is necessary with some versions of gcc, rather then openbsd specific (has to do with static linking of pthread). without that change build ~can~ produce broken static bitcoind on both openbsd and linux. at the time
phf: when it was written and submitted it applied cleanly to the tree. to my knowledge it doesn't interfere with stator build. in fact the whole point of patch is to make minimally intrusive changes to source so that interested parties don't have to track down silly issues when attempting a build on their own. it's my understanding that the patch was simply dropped during v-ification, so of course now it doesn't in any way fits into
phf: pressing.
ben_vulpes: phf: i have a hunch that it was my boost compiles that were failing.
pete_dushenski: just noticed that crapple is pulling the same version naming strange as bitcoin 'core', ie. v. x.9 followed by x.10, x.11, x.12, etc. (is this the equiv. of web 2.12 ?)
ben_vulpes: still trying to get the hang of the m1a1, very much adrift in the cockpit of a warthog.
ben_vulpes: pete_dushenski: it's been an alternative scheme for as long as i can remember
ben_vulpes: x.6 ~ 10.6
mircea_popescu: phf how can it be dropped i dont get this ?
mircea_popescu: in random good unix news : shuf -n 1 $file will pop out a random line from that file.
pete_dushenski: ben_vulpes: maybe it's just the coincidence that's being picked up on my gaydar then.

pete_dushenski: that being said, i've always thought that version numbers should "roll over" at a certain point. not like mac os8 went 43372 sub-versions before macos 9 showed up. eh. i guess it really doesn't matter.
pete_dushenski back to reading about x86_64
phf: mircea_popescu: well, openbsd and timestamp are written in old diff format, their migration was not done by foundation when majority of patches were moved to vdiff. i interpreted that move as the patches not being needed and an invitation to perform migration myself.
mircea_popescu: i think the migration was done by patch authors rly.
deedbot-: [Bingo Blog] The Theoretical Foundation of Social Engineering Practice -
mircea_popescu: anyway, do i get the impression you got the impression your patches aren't welcome or something ?
phf: well, first v release was migrated by ascii, with all the patches signed by him, i think later mod6 signed his?
mircea_popescu: possibru
BingoBoingo: If asciilifeform reads and tests what he signs the openbsd patch would have been missed. Timestamp may have been overlooked.

BingoBoingo can finally read ben_vulpes on SSL
phf: one of the features of the openbsd patch is that it should build cleanly on linux, i.e. naive build or a stator build. i did a naive build that work, while i was developing, but since i assume it was not included in stator i can't speak to that.
phf: basically the patch being dropped created bunch of work for me, that i don't have bandwidth to pursue. (i.e. produce a v version, test on stator)
pete_dushenski: ben_vulpes: "The correct answer is that developed and practiced by people who take personal cryptographic hygenie very seriously" << hygiene
phf: otherwise the work needs to be done by other foundation members, and it comes with commitment to support openbsd build
phf: as it stands foundation doesn't support openbsd, and when someone wants to build on openbsd, i just support them directly
mircea_popescu: i guess that makes sense.

phf: the ~only~ "script" aspect of the patch is "-Wl,--whole-archive -lpthread -Wl,--no-whole-archive" which is a cross platform gcc argument that ensure that pthread is truly fully statically linked into bitcoind. the issue that some parts of it don't appear consistently with openbsd gcc ~and also on some of the linux gcc versions~. fucking says so in the original email
phf: everything else in there is either cross platform clarification or straight up an #ifdef. it's a tiny ass patch, if it doesn't build on rotor, linux, etc. it's a bug in a patch

punkman: Cygnus, the Linux folks, the pgcc folks, the Fortran folks and many others have done development work which has not yet gone into the GCC2 tree despite years of efforts to make it possible."

mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i personally don't. there's a common disease of whores (and no, programmers aren't fundamentally anything else). it manifests like so : should a wolf find a delicious morsel, it will neglect it oft to the point of just letting it sit while it draws a perimeter around and inspects for whence it came for and MOAR. meanwhile, a mouse that found a morsel will grab it and run, never to return.
asciilifeform: originally i thought that it would have to be a gentoo vm, but turns out that one can actually build a genuine toolchain there ! and it runs...
mircea_popescu: i see it lots with online hos, you'd think that if you got easy money once, you'd never leave that place. but not so if you KNOW you're not worth anyone's time, deep down.
mircea_popescu: and so... i'm not particularly curious.

mircea_popescu: the ONLY viable attack against the wot is getting people to act in systematic manners.
mircea_popescu: it is the direct equivalent of entropy-diddling for keysystems.
mircea_popescu: not only "there's nothing common about common sense" - but there's a very good reason for this. common sense is decentralized system poison.
asciilifeform: when i explain this to folks, i like to use the example of liquid nitrogen sausage
asciilifeform: hit ordinary sausage with a hammer, nothing, it gets a little flatter
asciilifeform: now freeze it solid, do the same...

polarbeard: yes, I understand, it wasn't my intention to change nick, I nuked my keys
polarbeard: I *loved* that nick
mircea_popescu: mod6 well basically, cause the concept of "a man" is pretty much the key.
mod6: And I understand that part too Mr. P. Typically, this is what seperates us from 'dog'.
mircea_popescu: now a dog you can't trust!

trinque: yep, but this was just connecting to whomever he wanted
mod6: Ok moving on.
mod6: mircea_popescu, asciilifeform, ben_vulpes et. al., any further thoughts if we should clean up the code alignment (currently with spaces) post release and do a one-time clean up with tabs?
mod6: Trying to decide if I should post '' to the ML.
ben_vulpes: mod6: appears to be a useful tool
mod6: So the difference in '' is that the block of code in Sign() is spaced with tabs. And to Mr. P.'s point it should probably be all in a file or nothing. Otherwise its mis-matched. Some with spaces, some with tabs.
mod6: I'm prefectly happy to reconstruct the patch with spaces to stay in alignment with the current (albiet unwated) spacing scheme.
mod6: And then we can re-align post release.
mod6: Or, we can halt everything else, and create a new genesis and re-align, re-vpatch and re-sign everything.
polarbeard: mod6: honest question, why using two flags if they can't be used at the same time?
polarbeard: can't it be like a three state flag? 0 -> no enforce, 1 -> enforce low, 2 -> enforce high
polarbeard: wink wink, ternary computers
asciilifeform: polarbeard: i originally suggested this
assbot: Logged on 21-01-2016 13:36:27; asciilifeform: << rather than have the statement checking for luser who set both flags high and barfing, why not have two flags, e.g., 'forceS' and 'lowhighS'.
polarbeard: that's still too flags, I searched before asking :)
asciilifeform: polarbeard: you're still using 2 bits.
polarbeard: that's right, I only mean to simplify usage (if that matters to anybody)
ben_vulpes: i prefer my c++ as antagonistic as possible
polarbeard: also removes one conditional, as ascii noted days ago
mod6: so what we want, is three different ways: no force one way or another, force high, or force low. remember, i originally didn't want to do a force high at all. but since asciilifeform requested this, i'm entertaining this option.
mod6: I believe we need two flags.
mod6: If we simply get rid of 'fHighS' and 'fLowS' and replace with say 'fForceS', then how can we differentiate between entering into the high or low if block?
polarbeard: not using a boolean
polarbeard: or using two booleans, ascii's way
mod6: am i not using two booleans, polarbeard?
polarbeard: but yours are contradictory
polarbeard: therefore the need for the conditional
mod6: how would one set this singular boolean?
mod6: remember, i want a default state to *not* require a flag at all.
polarbeard: you can't, using a single boolean, do you mean an int?
mod6: right, i'd prefer not to use an int.
ben_vulpes: mod6: why not?
mod6: because it causes confusion to have -forceS=0 (low) and -forceS=1
polarbeard: you can use signeds, and then -1 0 1
mod6: from a user standpoint, i feel like its more conusing anyway.
polarbeard: 0 is the default, you may give -forceS=0 though, but that has no effect
mod6: polarbeard: keep in mind that i considered all of this over a week ago -- and decided against it. so yeah, i have put a lot of thought into this.
mod6: added complexity will result in bugs.
asciilifeform observes that this thread has already taken up more space than the patch.

ben_vulpes: appears to be a wrapper around do_sign to some extent or another
ben_vulpes: gah this return value shit is hilarious
ben_vulpes: mod6: what's the rationale behind including the commented out printfs?
mod6: so the deal there is that was just some debugging info -- that may be useful to someone at some point.

assbot: Logged on 21-01-2016 15:20:05; mod6: does anyone have any pref on the commented out DEBUG statements for the finalized one? just remove them?
mod6: anyway, asciilifeform yeah, i just grabbed that entire bit of code from here:
assbot: bitcoin/key.cpp at v0.9.3 · bitcoin/bitcoin · GitHub ... ( )
mod6: I'm not an expert on the openssl internals. If you think I should not trust ECDSA_do_sign and reimplment with ECDSA_sign, I can.
mod6: i suppose if we continue to use ECDSA_sign, we can continue to use: memcpy(&vchSig[0], pchSig, nSize);
ben_vulpes: that'd be closest to the original code
ben_vulpes: and imho preferrable for that reason.
mod6: true
mod6: not sure what to do abut this tho:

Then I'll immediately begin work on a re-alignment of all the patches we currently are distributing.
mod6: ok
mircea_popescu: what's your current work on teh patch ?
aknix: was actually just seeing if the channel was public again. Used to stop by now and then.
mod6: Nothing more than "send to the list", if its current form '' is acceptable.
mircea_popescu: that's kinda what i had in mind too.
mod6: Ok. I can get that done tonight yet.
mircea_popescu: i guess i unwittingly confused you, sorry about that. the S-patch was not actually intended to mark a new release did it ?
mod6: Oh no.
mod6: But it probably would have been the last thing to go into the tree before a release patch.
mod6: (a vpatch to tie them all together)
mircea_popescu: oh ok, my bad. so what i was thinking here is : a) finish the patch ; b) do all the other stuff you were going to do in your own time ; c) when ready make a new version ; d) take a week off, during which everyone [who cares to] can write and run a script to / /
mircea_popescu: after which back to normal. that sound sane ?
mod6: Yeah, sounds good. Thanks, want to get all of this done in a sane order and timely fashion.
mircea_popescu: so we'll have the 99996 > 99995 be "all tabulation, machine checkable"
mircea_popescu: and while it'd be tempting to overload it with stuff like moving the {, i would think it's better not to. make it simple and sweet to check.
mircea_popescu: stuff like { much easier to fix as patches/code is reviewed, by and by.
mod6: agreed. let's try to keep it just down to the tabs for now.
mod6: im sure i might need some more guidence when I get to working on that part, but we can cross that bridge when we come to it.
mircea_popescu: this'd be the last juncture at which people who seriously and staunchly are against the space to tab switch should raise hell.
mircea_popescu: and yes ben_vulpes is writing a style guide from what i understand

ECDSA_sign_ex() computes a digital signature of the dgstlen bytes hash value dgst using the private EC key eckey and the optional pre-computed values kinv and rp. The DER encoded signatures is stored in sig and it's length is returned in sig_len. (sig
mircea_popescu: must point to ECDSA_size bytes of memory, the parameter type ~is ignored~). Meanwhile ECDSA_do_sign_ex() computes a digital signature of the dgst_len bytes hash value dgst using the private key eckey and the optional precomputed values kinv and rp. The signature is returned in a newly allocated ECDSA_SIG structure (or NULL on error).
mircea_popescu: geddit ?
mircea_popescu: funny ben_vulpes, i was juist on that.
mircea_popescu: thestringpuller verification of any functional kind is the sworn enemy of anyone with phds. thinkaboutit.
ben_vulpes: i'm stalking your log progress
mircea_popescu: fancy that, someone actually thought this is how you design a function stack.
ben_vulpes: i will point out that changing to the wrapper implementation implies audits to be done of the implementation delta.
mircea_popescu: the difference between the two, incidentally, is not trivial.
ben_vulpes: still 'fine'?
mircea_popescu: !s fine from:mircea
assbot: 822 results for 'fine from:mircea' :
mircea_popescu: which one ?
ben_vulpes: most recent
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes we were discussing flags.
BingoBoingo: <danielpbarron> yeh, so is this still a qntra article or..? << If you submit something with all of the point brought up it channel, its chance of publication is a weighted coinflip. Depends what you can make of it.
ben_vulpes: HA DERP
ben_vulpes: my bad.
assbot: openssl 0.9.8o-5ubuntu1, ecs__sign_8c_source.html ... ( )
ben_vulpes: right but if we stick to the old impl the audit is no longer required.
asciilifeform: << i'd like to know what mircea_popescu intends to do about ~future~ style-nonconformant patches.
assbot: Logged on 25-01-2016 02:22:44; mircea_popescu: this'd be the last juncture at which people who seriously and staunchly are against the space to tab switch should raise hell.
mircea_popescu: the do version ultimately returns return ecdsa->meth->ecdsa_do_sign(dgst, dlen, kinv, rp, eckey); while the no-do version just calls the do version.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform not sign them.
asciilifeform: gonna reject because my emacs emits a mixture of tabs'n'spaces ?
mircea_popescu: it does ?!
asciilifeform: i have it align columns when possible
asciilifeform: so now i gotta write an elisp for trb
asciilifeform: whereas before i did not
mircea_popescu: what non-tabulated collumns do you use ?!
ben_vulpes: i am still anti-tab, delimiter token hoojaberry aside
asciilifeform: indentation to the ( in an if ( ... etc
mircea_popescu: you indent to the ( not to the if ?!
asciilifeform: the 1st line of the inner block - yes
asciilifeform: like k&r did.
polarbeard: mircea_popescu: look who removed the magicnum
assbot: Code cleanup: use ECDSA_size() instead of fixed 10,000 byte sig buffe… · bitcoin/bitcoin@9ef7fa3 · GitHub ... ( )
asciilifeform: generally i see 'style guide' as a thing between the writer and his gods
ben_vulpes: indentation is poetry in any lisp
mircea_popescu: polarbeard you're not familiar with history. 2011 gavin is ok gavin.
assbot: And Gavin moves on to the dark side. The Bitcoin project is officially hijacked on Trilema - A blog by Mircea Popescu. ... ( )
asciilifeform: to proclaim one in a project which did not previously have one, creates a megatonne of work for a great many people, to no very obvious benefit
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform well, if there's no consensus, there's no consensus and there it goes.
asciilifeform: the people whose crap i cannot stand reading, are the ones WITHOUT A CONSISTENT style.
mircea_popescu: poor mod6 gets no week off!
asciilifeform: lack of any style at all is generally symptomatic of serious cranial cockroaches
ben_vulpes: only reasonable style guide for this codebase is "make it look like the lines immediately above and below"
mircea_popescu: hey, if the change is not obviously a good thing it's probably a bad idea. it pisses me the fuck off, but whatevs, i'll sed or something.

asciilifeform: sed, sed.
asciilifeform: i'm not even opposed to the thing getting retabulated on releases.
mircea_popescu: i can't code worth a crap anyway.
asciilifeform: but rejecting patches because they have the wrong terminal bells is lunacy
polarbeard: ben_vulpes: lol, vi... I mean notepad.exe has a plugin for that
ben_vulpes: what that
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform perhaps rejecting workers because they forgot to wipe their ass this morning also ?
asciilifeform: polarbeard: didja write a patch and i missed it reading the log ?
polarbeard: asciilifeform: gavin did
assbot: Logged on 25-01-2016 01:58:21; mod6: I'm not an expert on the openssl internals. If you think I should not trust ECDSA_do_sign and reimplment with ECDSA_sign, I can.
polarbeard: ben_vulpes: for looking to the lines above and below and use that as the defaults
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform there's a raft of cosmetic/credible fixes between .5 and .6.
asciilifeform: well, one allocates, the other drops in place
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform the one calls the other anyway.
asciilifeform: aha, was reading ben_vulpes's links earlier saw this
mircea_popescu: you mean my links ?
asciilifeform: and them
mircea_popescu: his are badly tabulated, don't count.
ben_vulpes rolls eyes
ben_vulpes: polarbeard: huh i had no idea editors needed plugins to do that
ben_vulpes: the abominable variable naming alignment, yes
BingoBoingo: <thestringpuller> so. they took out verifyall in core bitcoind and replaced it with -reindex. -reindex doesn't disregard checkpoints. or at least no one knows if it does or not. how do these people have Ph.D's and shit? << -reindex and -verifyall are two different things.
asciilifeform: incidentally -verifyall was not in the classical bitcoin !
asciilifeform: i added it !
mircea_popescu: iirc also .6 branch

mircea_popescu: was a flurry of "build confidence & establish trust" activity cca 2011 / early 2012.
asciilifeform: did they call it something else ?
mircea_popescu: yeah, what was it
mircea_popescu: -checkblocks=<n> How many blocks to check at startup (default: 288, 0 = all)
asciilifeform: how was this arrived at, gotta ask
asciilifeform: ouija board/
mircea_popescu: heh. this is novel,
mircea_popescu: it's a rewriting of an older thing
mircea_popescu: back when they added "check level" too, maybe 0.9 ?
assbot: Add -checklevel and improve -checkblocks by sipa · Pull Request #972 · bitcoin/bitcoin · GitHub ... ( )
mircea_popescu: later on those 6 levels became just 4.
mircea_popescu: then later went from $$$ are not expected to understand how this works...ReBmUn_CIGAM___$$$ = 2500 to $$$ are not expected to understand how this works...ReBmUn_CIGAM___$$$ = 288
mircea_popescu: prolly to celebrate someone's girlfriend's success in dieting.
mircea_popescu: ("Note that even level 6 does not do signature/script checking." is prolly the best part in all of that junk.)
