mod6: <+asciilifeform> did you make it directly from my 2 patches (old + new) ? << no didn't even try that yet. just went straight into integration of both into one. kinda got side tracked with the SoBA and then watched some xfiles. heheh.
asciilifeform: what else is secretly not-cheap, officially, that i had nfi about? ? toiler paper?
BingoBoingo prolly going to pick up dead tree SICP in the next month or so

Tasoshi: So Satoshi's great test to determine whether bitcoin can operate through decentralised consensus is now on. mircea_popescu, I have been looking at some old posts and it seemed that in 2013 you agreed with Satoshi and his vision. What exactly did you learn in 2013 to turn yourself against Satoshi's vision itself?
mircea_popescu: can you be specific ?
Tasoshi: I am sure you know your own history better than I
mircea_popescu: fine, if you must. "meanwhile i read the code".
mircea_popescu: what fucking vision.
punkman: mircea_popescu: re:sha3-digest, here's one idea, asic miners can get around recalculating the digest on every hash by changing the merkle-root/timestamp instead of the nonce
Tasoshi: to scale on chain so as to give the security and privacy of onchain transactions to all
mircea_popescu: punkman quite, yes. this is deliberate.
mircea_popescu: won't be too easy tho, asic needs EVEN MORE ram that way.
mircea_popescu: (miners currently use this incidentally, to some degree)
BingoBoingo: Tasoshi: Seriously give the Bitcoin code a read. Version 0.3.21, 0.5.4, 0.7.2, and 0.8 are all essential reading
punkman: why even more ram?

Tasoshi: what I find surprising is that the propaganda video has any persuasive power when it visually shows its settlement system as being very centralised - that is many people connecting to 1 hub/bank...

ascii_butugychag: mircea_popescu: what's your objection to throw runtime_error ?
BingoBoingo: Prolly ran out of reddit
mircea_popescu: ascii_butugychag i didn't object to it in principle, but it's also not covered by the new logging model.
mircea_popescu: i do object to return ret; in principle.
polarbeard: mircea_popescu: I didn't know it was expected to solve it, but ok, I see this patch is consuming too much time from everybody...
ascii_butugychag: mircea_popescu: what new logging model
mircea_popescu: polarbeard i dunno that it was expected to either. prolly isn't, really. just, bitcoin code is too layered, random and messy.
mircea_popescu: ascii_butugychag lemme summarize this for you. bitcoin eminently keeps shitty logs. a new guy came in and undertood the monstrous task of trying to fix that.
mircea_popescu: this has on one side exposed a lot of the underlying grime, and on the other side is bugging your centralist mind because you don't want to read thousands of lines of patchwork.
polarbeard: to be honest, I see this thing going forward if I don't have to generate a new patch again
mircea_popescu: nevertheless : the grime's still there, and bitcoin would do a lot better with a better logging system
ascii_butugychag: the ~original~ grime is only cleanable at tremendous cost.
polarbeard: so if I can add another patch on top of these I will keep working on it but I'm tired of rediffing...
ascii_butugychag: and really oughta be lisped.
mircea_popescu: polarbeard aha.
mircea_popescu: ascii_butugychag yeah well.
ascii_butugychag: shiva hooks on everything, and programmable log mechanism in ~that~.
mircea_popescu: understand : you can't prevent people from working nor should you try.
ascii_butugychag: i in particular can't prevent anybody from doing anything.
ascii_butugychag: but will pronounce - 'this is braindamaged and i will not sign.'
ascii_butugychag: ben_vulpes, mod6, mircea_popescu - can, obviously, do what they like.
mircea_popescu: well the v is well designed to be forgiving and helpful.
mircea_popescu: anyway, yes, i'm taking the time from my days of orgies and icecream to read this thing.
ascii_butugychag: briefly, unrelatedly, mircea_popescu 'the keccak function takes unlimited input' << what ?!
phf: can imagine future where ascii big trb senator is forced by opposition forces to sign, "i will not siiiign"
mircea_popescu: hehehe. thanks god we are better than that stupid shit.
mircea_popescu: "FOR SIIIIGNLET!!!!"
mircea_popescu: ascii_butugychag it's my recollection you can apply it on an endless pile of data, neh ?
ascii_butugychag: also keccak has same problem as predecessor, silicon will be baked, we get mining cartels again.
mircea_popescu: you gotta read carefully.
mircea_popescu: CAREFULLY.
ascii_butugychag: mircea_popescu: you can apply ~any~ hash to endless pile
ascii_butugychag goes, reads, again
BingoBoingo: !up ascii_butugychag
ascii_butugychag: mircea_popescu: i still don't grasp the 'technological reasons' from footnote v
mircea_popescu: ascii_butugychag is asic going to store the whole chain ?
ascii_butugychag: it can be in a drive.
mircea_popescu: can that drive seek 300k specific bytes on demand ?
mircea_popescu: if you have a drive that seeks and also updates, why not have a cpu ?
mircea_popescu: the only reason asics exist is because sha256 you can do by hand on paper.
ascii_butugychag: i also vaguely recall ^this aspect being appealing to mircea_popescu ?
ascii_butugychag: (slavecoin!)
mircea_popescu: yes there's some economy of scale to be had with well designed flash banks, made each the size of a block etc.
mircea_popescu: but that also means block size gets BAKED IN SILICONE
mircea_popescu: so whatever new value we agree upon, it's fixed.
ascii_butugychag: might bring exotical like holo storage out of the circus and into actual production
mircea_popescu: obviously there's no insurance against future technology.
punkman: why not 1tb of ram?
ascii_butugychag: and how is block size any more fixed in the proposed scheme than in the old ?
mircea_popescu: but on the basis of what we currently known, a strict coupling there (4 or less bits of shift) is untractable
ascii_butugychag: in either case, if changed - fork
mircea_popescu: ascii_butugychag different incentives. as it is now, changing the size doesn't automatically brick all miners.
ascii_butugychag: and i can easily go buy 1tb of ram whenever, as can anybody
mircea_popescu: this is an oversight. they want a change, fine, but they must fully commit to it.
mircea_popescu: 1tb of ram will be overwhelmed by 20mb blocks in a few years.
mircea_popescu: moreover, you still need all the accesses.
mircea_popescu: the ~only way to do this in silicone is to make blocksized banks and line them up.
mircea_popescu: this will be done eventually, as the article says. but not without its costs.
punkman: mutating the merkle root just needs some sha256 hashing though
mircea_popescu: but is also finite.
punkman: is not
mircea_popescu: how do you mean ?
ascii_butugychag: 20mb blocks?!
punkman: you just put the nonce in coinbase, isn't it equivalent to mutating the actual nonce?
ascii_butugychag: and what is so great about miners == nodes ?
ascii_butugychag: recipe for remaking swift ?
deedbot-: accepted: 1
mircea_popescu: punkman yes, up until people start rejecting nonstandard blocks.
ascii_butugychag: where there are a dozen nodes, forever.
mircea_popescu: ascii_butugychag what do you mean ?
punkman: you can encode that nonce in standard coinbase outputs
ascii_butugychag: mircea_popescu: centralization
mircea_popescu: punkman yes, but costs money and takes time.
mircea_popescu: ascii_butugychag can you be explicit for crying out loud.
ascii_butugychag: right now we have gangrene in one leg. what is an improvement about having ~two~ ?
mircea_popescu: what's a word gonna do.
punkman: mircea_popescu: orders of magnitude cheaper than recalculating nonce+digest
ascii_butugychag: requiring elaborate hardware to mine adds to, rather than takes away from, centralization.
jurov: trinque: says "Last updated 2016-01-27"
ascii_butugychag: and the ssd cartel is cackling as we speak, reading this
mircea_popescu: ascii_butugychag this is a general principle that works generally.
ascii_butugychag: suddenly ssd is plutonium.
ascii_butugychag: fuck that
mircea_popescu: ssd is A LOT easier to make than fucking asics.
ascii_butugychag: this is demonstrably untrue.
ascii_butugychag: 'btc asic' is really 1980s-level vlsi.
mircea_popescu: punkman not really. for one thing, now it's finite.
mircea_popescu: that's no demonstration of anything.
ascii_butugychag: and south kr, usg muppet, owns ~100% of ssd fabrication.
ascii_butugychag: thinkaboutit
ascii_butugychag: they have a stranglehold
mircea_popescu: this is like saying russia makes all mop buckets and so they have a stranglehold.
mircea_popescu: and ukrainian whores have a stranglehold on german streetwalking.
mircea_popescu: yeah, i'm sure they do. why ?
ascii_butugychag: realize that cn would profit tremendously from making own ssd
ascii_butugychag: and still has not.
mircea_popescu: because it's the easiest thing to do and they're entry level.
ascii_butugychag: because it is not a fucking mop bucket
ascii_butugychag: it is something that ONE country has any kind of reasonable tooling to make.
trinque: jurov: btcd is choking on the transaction representing felipelalli's deed; I've been looking at it
mircea_popescu: anyway. this adds the "need chinese foundries" to "need sk sdd" for maximal ,ulz.
trinque: perhaps it is a matter of the key generated being invalid, though I would've expected the bits I'm using for pubkey/address generation to barf at that, and didn't
mircea_popescu: trinque maybe it's high s :D
trinque: meanwhile the trb node is now at 383k, thanks to new SSD
ascii_butugychag: mircea_popescu: why not, while you're at it, premine 100% of the coins and just hand them to seoul.
ascii_butugychag: same effect.
mircea_popescu: ascii_butugychag anyway, the only thign this does is that if implemented, you could alter dulap code slightly and produce usable digest blocks for sale to pay for the node.
ascii_butugychag: for sale to whom ?
ascii_butugychag: who wants this, for what ?
mircea_popescu: miners need to know that nonces x to x' are ok to mine with digest Z
mircea_popescu: and you have a cpu and a hdd, and can just produce this information.
ascii_butugychag: i think i have a stronger chance of flying to mircea_popescu's house on a glider powered by my own farts, than for this to so much as budge the schelling point from bitcoin by so much as a nanometre.
mircea_popescu: and it'll be way the fuck cheaper for them to buy it from you than for them to bake a cpu and hdd into the 80s era vlsi.
ascii_butugychag: why would anyone value this, for anything ?
mircea_popescu: for the obvious reason.
mircea_popescu: it heals the node-miner breach.
ascii_butugychag: i get that miners without nodes are retarded, but that is easily fixed just by requiring whole-block hash in the nonce rather than the idiot header system
ascii_butugychag: and nukes pools, at the same time
mircea_popescu: (they way this is likely going to be asic'd is by keeping rainbow tables, and just adding octets. nevertheless - this STILL requires the whole chain be preserved. even if in a diff format)
ascii_butugychag: what i don't get is what desirable thing the workfunction change accomplishes
mircea_popescu: how is this a workfunction change ?
ascii_butugychag: attempt at 'i/o-hard' workfunction
mircea_popescu: i mean. how is this more or different of a workfunction change.
mircea_popescu: nah, it's just making sure people actually have the chain. all of it.

mircea_popescu: so is the carnot cycle.
ascii_butugychag: introduces exactly the wrong incentives, and empowers the folks you least want in the driver's seat

mod6: hey ascii_butugychag, so i figured out what my dumbass did yesterday. somehow, when looking at your fix patch - I missed the portion where you changed main.cpp altogether.
mod6: probably was just going to fast.
mod6: anyway, i created a new patch for PVS and did a regrind on malleus (since this one depends on main.cpp)
mod6: compiled just fine, just kicked it off for a quick test...
mod6: # ps aux | grep bitcoind && LC_ALL=C ./bitcoind -datadir=/mnt/btc-dev/.bitcoin getinfo | grep version
mod6: root 31936 32.1 37.8 1741912 1453164 pts/7 SLl 19:01 0:55 ./bitcoind -datadir=/mnt/btc-dev/.bitcoin -myip= -addnode= -setverstring=trb -setvernum=99998 -lows
mod6: root 31948 0.0 0.0 8924 708 pts/7 S+ 19:04 0:00 grep --colour=auto bitcoind
mod6: "version" : 99998,
mod6: so that looks like its doing the right thing, and the log was updated as well.
phf: mircea_popescu: ^
phf: which kind of broke the previous ip only links, i might fix that at some point

phf: polarbeard: it's not correct, since the graph is supposed to only show transitions, rather then descendants/antecedents. in this case polarbeard_better_log_messages touches util.h and util.cpp that are modified in polarbeard_remove_shrink_debug_file
ascii_butugychag: ty trinque. mod6: it looks fine
ascii_butugychag: i still think regrinds are a thing to be avoided whenever possible, but whatever
phf: in other words there might be an antecedent, but there's also other hunks in that file that should've prevented the linkage
ascii_butugychag: phf: your viewer is mighty spiffy, it is exactly what i wanted to make in september (and never had time)
ascii_butugychag: if it were given a place to pump in patches, we could finally give turdatron a proper burial

mod6: and a similar situation in V would be like 69 patches to patch the original patch.
ascii_butugychag: mod6: i found myself blowing the very tiny time budget i had, on regrinding
ascii_butugychag: and imho it is quite unnecessary
ascii_butugychag: and now, e.g., shiva is hosed, imho needlessly, and will have to be reground

phf: ascii_butugychag: thanks!
phf: polarbeard: you can't press polarbeard_better_log_messages directly on top of asciilifeform_maxint_locks_corrected period. so the ~transition~ makes no sense

thestringpuller: "Do you not understand how a web of trust functions, or why?"
thestringpuller: Isn't this fundamental to achieving some sort of ~actual~ security?
ascii_butugychag: the trick here is that the proposition that you could actually understand a device that you own, is a hard sell to a great many folks
thestringpuller: those folks usually would accidentally drink rat poison if it was "accidentally" labeled wine
thestringpuller: since they don't like to read.

PeterL: seems like it would be easier to run your own node for your minerfarm than to buy from other people?
ascii_butugychag: aha, seems like a 'let's rent out space inside my nose' situation
ascii_butugychag: (to borrow a mircea_popescuism)
PeterL: I guess instead of having one pool doing block hashing, you would have two pools connected, one doing the block hashing and one doing the bitmap hashing?
PeterL: pay-per-nonce?
mircea_popescu: PeterL there's a selection of different people there but ok.
mircea_popescu: ascii_butugychag then read my response :D
mircea_popescu: or just graph the demand curve for digests in units of time delta block finds in your head and see.
PeterL: so then people who have full nodes are the front half of the mining pool, and the back half remains about what it is now
mircea_popescu: PeterL nobody who wants a bitcoin-without-the-bitcoin thing would like that proposal. that's fundamentally why it's there, to readily distinguish people seeking to help from people seeking to help us hang ourselves.
mircea_popescu: anyway, the shifting decides that. if you make the shifting very low, mining as an activity seen today disappears altogether - the digest is much more expensive than the hashing.
mircea_popescu: so you'll just mine on server farms.
PeterL: is mining on server farms better than mining on asics?
ascii_butugychag: actually i must disagree with one point - general-purpose, e.g., x86, cpu, is full of so much crud that asicization is economical and quite inevitable
mircea_popescu: well... it is "closer to the origianl vision" at any rate.
ascii_butugychag: nobody needs that tlb cache
mircea_popescu: ascii_butugychag do you see the side benefit to this happening ?
ascii_butugychag: nobody needs the idiot 'acceleration' opcodes

ascii_butugychag: just pointing out that 80-90% of an x86 die is there because winblowz, really
ascii_butugychag: and helps not at all in actual computation.

mircea_popescu: yay bitcoin miners!

ascii_butugychag: i don't see how
mircea_popescu: you don't see how it's a step or how it's the right direction ?

ascii_butugychag: (rainbow table)

ascii_butugychag: because wtf
ascii_butugychag: jurov: that was because ~nobody is actually setting up new nodes
ascii_butugychag: or moving old coin
jurov: but feeding new nodes is not random-access affair. spending old coin, now that's something else
jurov: but if it was not spent often so far, i hardly expect that to change
ascii_butugychag still thinks that blockchain mask rom ought to be a product
ascii_butugychag: why the fuck provision for rewriting bits that will ~never~ be rewritten.
ascii_butugychag: mask rom is approximately indestructible, costs precious little to make, uses minimal current, etc
jurov: so? burn the old half to bd-r. checkbox marked.
ascii_butugychag: and now you're ddosable.
ascii_butugychag: (when it becomes known that asking for old blocks makes you spin a motor)
jurov: ha! let the enemy start moving his precious pre-2011 coinz
ascii_butugychag: he doesn't need to actually move'em
ascii_butugychag: just pretend to
ascii_butugychag: you ~will~ have to load the blocks
ascii_butugychag: (to see that his tx is invalid)
jurov: that will be stopped by index which stays on ssd
ascii_butugychag: how does this help ?
ascii_butugychag: index just ends up telling you to fetch the ancient block.
ascii_butugychag: bitcoin as presently conceived requires random access.
jurov: ok. anyway, should be not hard to have a bit in the index saying tx has all otutputs spent with 1000... confirmations
jurov: (but yes that's HARD, i believe electrum does this and it makes full sync almost impractical even on ssd)
mircea_popescu: ascii_butugychag> why the fuck provision for rewriting bits that will ~never~ be rewritten. <<< ironically, cheaper to save on hdd than on the mask rom. yet.

asciilifeform: 'From the court filing for his recent arrest it looks like this was a fairly clever trap set for Bridges. There's a reference in the last paragraph of the filing to a still-sealed warrant for Bridges' arrest. Apparently they got this sealed warrant issued BEFORE they released him, then let him out for the occasionally-offered "time to tidy up your affairs" post-sentencing/pre-incarceration. This isn't too unusual, but ONLY for
asciilifeform: convicts with near-zero flight risk. So it's very very strange they offered this to Bridges, and he's an idiot for not wondering WTF was up. Anyways, looks like he fell into the trap.

mircea_popescu: take chetty's key. if it expires tomorrow, what does that change exactly ?

ben_vulpes: is this the sort of thing that *must* be implemented as a fork of the existing chain?
ben_vulpes not terrifically intimate with fork dynamics in practice, having flatly ignored proposals to do so until now
ben_vulpes now actually very curious as to how this sort of thing would work at the code level in practice. if blockheight < forkheight, use old validation rules, else use new?
adlai: ben_vulpes: did you see my comment? this could be implemented today by miners already and you wouldn't have known of it
danielpbarron recalls Mircea saying something like "if you're gonna fork, might as well start with new genesis block"
ben_vulpes: i do not think i've gotten to your comment yet adlai. on trilema?
assbot: The necessary prerequisite for any change to the Bitcoin protocol on Trilema - A blog by Mircea Popescu. ... ( )
danielpbarron: !s fork genesis
assbot: 5 results for 'fork genesis' :
danielpbarron: ^ there you go :)
ben_vulpes: i believe that i understand how it could be implemented softly, adlai, but it doesn't /count/ until it's verified.
adlai: correct, same as how extension block (adam back's original name for what morphed into the "segwit softfork") payments don't /count/ until you withdraw them to cold, hard, bitcoin
ben_vulpes: yeah i never followed that stupidity in depth
ben_vulpes: jurov: i committed violence to asciilifeform's original v in a harebrained attempt to add tests, was roundly caned for the violence, left his implementation to him and hared off to reimplement in cl.
adlai: ben_vulpes: fwiw i still believe it's a bad idea to discourage this kind of "speculative soft fork"... it makes it easier for experimenters to put their money where their mouth is, and puts on a good show for "conservatives" who remain in plain good old Bitcoin
ben_vulpes: adlai: sure!
adlai personally will be slightly amused if LN goes live on SegwitCoin, and sees zero volume because nobody who spends btc actually needs micropayments
adlai: (there'd go all the talk about capacity cliffs...)
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes made for some interesting discussion at any rate.

mircea_popescu: adlai this fear is part of why ln bla bla stays vaporware.
mircea_popescu: but that aside, should they somehow find the money/mit to pull an ethereum : spam is easy and cheap.
adlai: part of the just beauty is that spamming extension blocks is cheaper than spamming Bitcoin
adlai: so along with a fee market, we also get a spam market
