asciilifeform: apparently
asciilifeform: would've been glorious if they'd fired it first
asciilifeform: empty the prb folks
asciilifeform: but that'd be burning prb, which is a no-no.
asciilifeform: (for anyone who forgot, prb still has hardcoded dns seed etc)
mircea_popescu: #b-a, the driving force behind internet security phenomena. since 2016.
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo incidentally, this should be qntra'd asap.
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: ALready started
asciilifeform: 'The glibc DNS client side resolver is vulnerable to a stack-based buffer overflow when the getaddrinfo() library function is used. Software using this function may be exploited with attacker-controlled domain names, attacker-controlled DNS servers, or through a man-in-the-middle attack.'
mircea_popescu: see if stackexchange burial team is at battlestations or not.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform should be pretty lulzy to read the "never happened and if it did we did it first nayway" verbiage.
asciilifeform: naturally.
asciilifeform: at this point i would be greatly surprised to see anything else.
punkman: "Remote code execution is possible, but not straightforward. It requires bypassing the security mitigations present on the system, such as ASLR. We will not release our exploit code, but a non-weaponized Proof of Concept has been made available"
asciilifeform: 'We would like to thank .... blahblah ... Florian Weimer ...
asciilifeform: ... and the rest of the glibc team '
mircea_popescu: left a note in bitcoin-dev for maxilulz.
asciilifeform: 'The vectors to trigger this buffer overflow are very common and can include ssh, sudo, and curl.'
asciilifeform: is anyone still unclear why i did not and still do not want curl in vtron ?!!!!
mircea_popescu: totally, thank the people who put the hole in, it's because of their "hard work" that you have a hole to burn.
mircea_popescu: asshats.
punkman: " The code that causes the vulnerability was introduced in May 2008 as part of glibc 2.9."
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform that never was the unclear part. didja have a replacement was the unclear part.
asciilifeform: the replacement is manual loading of tarballs from wherever onto the build box.
mircea_popescu: i guess.
asciilifeform: a la pgp.
asciilifeform: and the offloading of the built binary, via same.
asciilifeform: from, as i gather, elementary economic calculations, the enemy focuses almost all effort on real-time/net-connected crapola
PeterL: asciilifeform wasn't the thing you were describing, 'g', going to be for downloading stuff?
asciilifeform: PeterL: not precisely
asciilifeform: PeterL: it is supposed to be a generic cipherator for tcp tunnel
asciilifeform: but not released yet, and at this rate no idea if even releasable at all, i lack a cipher
asciilifeform: what i wanted was a generic, fits-in-head (a few 1000 lines of c, no deps) stateless, 'protocol-less' cipherator that one could put, e.g., ftp over

mircea_popescu: aha. ever-more testing the bounds of insanity, too. it's fun to watch.
asciilifeform: florian weimer et al are 'security professionals' for 'fixing' holes after the fact (self-planted, but who will print this.) whereas we are 'nutters' for removing the cancerous tissue preemptively.

assbot: Logged on 24-01-2016 15:13:09; asciilifeform: in principle, i like the lightweight, pedigreed, and 'hackable on' bsd family, e.g., netbsd. but imho openbsd is something that probably needs to be helped die

trinque: I read it, did not find it conclusive.
felipelalli: trinque, the same
mircea_popescu: but ask better question than "why do you think so"
asciilifeform: !s openbsd dbus
assbot: 5 results for 'openbsd dbus' :
trinque: so you don't like ports
mircea_popescu: in general - if the question you are about to ask could come out of a psychanalist, do yourself the favour and save yourself the wrath.
trinque: this is distinct from talking about openbsd
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 29400 @ 0.00055953 = 16.4502 BTC [-]
trinque: this is absurd
asciilifeform: there is no openbsd sans the ports.
trinque: horse shit; I've built all manner of things myself
asciilifeform: as have i.
asciilifeform: a torn out kernel is not 'openbsd', it is bsd.
asciilifeform: the thing is an ensemble, like gentoo
asciilifeform: and normally used as such.
trinque: do you have a particular vintage of linux kernel you prefer?
BingoBoingo: felipelalli: alf hates the OpenBSD ports turdage which has lots of shitgnomery and the occasional userland shitgnomery
asciilifeform: trinque: vintage is not the right word
trinque: because from where I sit the most recent ones have an obscene amount of "features" bolted on which I do not use
asciilifeform: i have a number of kernels painfully prepared for different boxes
asciilifeform: that are quite entirely different
mircea_popescu: bespokeos
asciilifeform: and each took some days of manual sewing, to produce
asciilifeform: and i imagine most folks here have - same.
BingoBoingo: <asciilifeform> there is no openbsd sans the ports. << The userland is enough for a webserver/firewall/etc box
felipelalli: At least they really care about security. I tried to compile Bitcoin Core in OpenBSD once but I couldn't (in a quick & dirt attempt).
trinque: ^ that much is true, and something I quite like
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: understand, if i can't build and run emacs and its dependencies, the os is fit for 'bury in concrete' only - e.g., router
asciilifeform: and quite likely not even this
asciilifeform: because whatever prevents a sane emacs build, is likely to interfere with other work
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: But for many purposes that's all box needs to do. Emacs up the text somewhere else.
asciilifeform: in the case of openbsd, it is that virtually all of the major ports pull in dbus.
trinque: I can agree readily that's a sin
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: it is flagrantly unfit for battleship
BingoBoingo: Battle ship and frigate are different boats.
asciilifeform: and in fact its mere inclusion of dbus spoils the entire nominal flavour of 'sane and security-oriented'
trinque: it is whether linux is fit(ter) that I question.
assbot: Logged on 16-02-2016 16:30:16; mircea_popescu: in general - if the question you are about to ask could come out of a psychanalist, do yourself the favour and save yourself the wrath.
asciilifeform: it is a rat-sized cockroach in a fine restaurant.
asciilifeform: right on my plate.
BingoBoingo: But anyways the enemy here is m:tier specifically
trinque: it causes me to seriously consider producing a ports tree of my own
asciilifeform: trinque: linux (at least a reasonably well-cultivated linux) is ispo facto 'fitter' on account of having the ability to build emacs sans dbus.
asciilifeform: understand, this is NOT negotiable.
trinque: I run without dbus as well, and understand fully why this is a Good Thing
asciilifeform: i was unable even to build most logging demons from ports
asciilifeform: because dbus.
asciilifeform: now the other thing about openbsd is the incident with theo and that microshit flunkie
asciilifeform: the one who approved spitting in mircea_popescu's face after the donation.
asciilifeform: and the one who presides over the 'hackathon' vermin while theo (who is afflicted with some peculiar stockholm syndrome) starves in a garret
mircea_popescu: i would say that openbsd pre 2014 and openbsd post 2014 are entirely unrelated entities.
asciilifeform: this is abundantly clear
mircea_popescu: the tenuous thread of theo's own person is not enough to keep this shit together, because he's too jwz-ish to engage the more important half - politics.
mircea_popescu: so in this sense... lizzards got petrified, moved in, stole it.
mircea_popescu: at least that's my interpretation of events.
BingoBoingo: ALso possible, Theo's wrath bit is losing sensistivity as he ages
asciilifeform: the more interesting question is how they managed to steal it without buying theo
trinque: I can see all this, yet meanwhile linux has hypervisors and keychains and complex abstractions around "namespaces" and "containers" and ...
BingoBoingo: They stole theo's inner circle.
asciilifeform: and the answer likely involves him having been surrounded by quislings for ~years~
asciilifeform: trinque: they are removable
BingoBoingo: Likely starting with the Bob Beck fellow
asciilifeform: this is key.
trinque: asciilifeform: yes, but did they not affect decisions elsewhere in the kernel?
asciilifeform: trinque: certainly
trinque: I have spent countless hours pruning a kernel config
asciilifeform: but there is not ~yet~ a linux kernel equivalent of dbus cancer
asciilifeform: though the systemd folks are working day and night, for this.
trinque: asciilifeform: were the dbusified ports tree otherwise, would that change your assessment of obsd?
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform> the more interesting question is how they managed to steal it without buying theo << this is deeply uninteresting, as it's well documented. see for instance
assbot: The woman's fault on Trilema - A blog by Mircea Popescu. ... ( )
asciilifeform: trinque: i have nfi what ~else~ is systematically broken
mircea_popescu: the current crop of bois have all the patriotism of a wet noodle.
asciilifeform: only got as far as dbus.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: unfortunately the highlight thing displays ~nowhere~ i've tried it on.
asciilifeform: not even crapple!
mircea_popescu: "the young man's father, a smart fellow who has bought hook line and sinker into the theory that satisfying the desires of women is more important than satisfying the needs of men."
asciilifeform: what do i need, to excatate ie6 ?!
asciilifeform: *excavate
mircea_popescu: it similarly works on everything i try, so i dunno. tis sad tho.
mircea_popescu: i really liked the indicating.
asciilifeform: possibly the folks for whom it works, should chime in ?
asciilifeform: re: what browser etc.
asciilifeform: but i still don't get (am i thick?) the point about 'the patriotism' of 'the bois'
mircea_popescu: so ask a q.
asciilifeform: what in this case means patriotism ? who are the bois ?
asciilifeform: where do i even begin
mircea_popescu: the boi, in this case, is theo de radt, but he's not so dissimilar from any other esl speaker.
mircea_popescu: patriotism, in this case, is a willingness to die to defend your territory, as you define it - NOT as some woman defines it.
asciilifeform: waitasec i thought he was from za ?!!
mircea_popescu: a fine example in this vein would be the case of a late night trip, during which a drunk hobo on the street started growling, and a random, accountant-looking bypasser yelled him down.
mircea_popescu: esl - english as a single language.
asciilifeform: yeah but is he ?
mircea_popescu: apparently.
asciilifeform did not know this.
mircea_popescu: people can have french loess without being ethnically french. it's a mental illness, not anything else.
trinque: the state is the ultimate owner of all property, so they told the bois. how then could anyone possibly have territory?
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform now think about it : would random usian engage hobo on the grounds that "fuck you, be quiet, you're living on MY street" on the simple grounds of ~having been passing by there~ ?
mircea_popescu: this is patriotism, in perhaps an extreme degree.
asciilifeform: can hardly picture this.
asciilifeform: maybe in 1900.
mircea_popescu: "it's my fucking street, because i am walking on it, and if you wish to be here, you'll play by my rules, all of them, right now"
mircea_popescu: obviously this makes it difficult to office drone.
asciilifeform: it is not only that 'office drone' has no knife and never swung a fist in his life and etc. as mircea_popescu probably imagines. though all of this is true. it is ALSO that the street is NOT HIS
asciilifeform: it is... a hotel.
asciilifeform: 'where is the man who will die for a hotel?'
mircea_popescu: which has its advantages.
mircea_popescu: and... its disadvantages
asciilifeform: i've lived in usa since '92. it remains, to me, a hotel.
asciilifeform: and not the swankiest possible hotel, either.
mircea_popescu: (i am not, as it may appear on the strength of the rarity of such arcane knowledge, proposing that this is some sort of better or ideal solution. it is merely different. lettuce not fall into 1900s orientalism over here.)
asciilifeform: just a 'roach motel.'
mircea_popescu: well... so now you see why exactly i say patriotism. who the fuck dies to defend... 8ball motels ?
asciilifeform: only an idiot
asciilifeform: or, perhaps, owner
mircea_popescu: yeah. meanwhile, as far as usable software is concerned, ownership is both an absolute bar to shitgnomery and as near as i can determine the only workable basis.
mircea_popescu: and so here we are.
mircea_popescu: contrary to what the kids [like to {pretend like they're}] think{ing}, coding ability is a relatively unimportant consideration. political ability, in the very simple sense of a mental capacity for ownership, is the larger half.
asciilifeform: who needs engine, when you have wheels!
asciilifeform: but elementarily, 'coding ability' as a concept is a lie
asciilifeform: the interesting variable here is the ability to ~select problems~
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 35100 @ 0.00056339 = 19.775 BTC [+] {2}
asciilifeform: (rather than what is normally presented as 'coding ability' in idiot industry, this being - quickly and accurately solving the non-problems posed by non-people)
mircea_popescu: so there you go.
trinque understands better (he thinks) the "keep it" in "a republic, if you can keep it", and also the absurdity of to whom that was supposedly addressed

His approach was approved by general consensus and that's what we all use today - partly because he put in the time and effort to fix the broader issue, not just the specific case that had been identified.

asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: why would you need a spreadshit on a box where you can dynamically conjure a porthole into $arbitrarydatum onto the display ?
mircea_popescu: because.
mircea_popescu: you don't understand women, alfie.
asciilifeform: waiwut?!
mircea_popescu: you expect excel spread sheets are a UTILITY ?
asciilifeform: and if used as 'boss screen', can make one wherever?
mircea_popescu: they are a security.
mircea_popescu: they exist to assuage existential anxiety as experienced by females.
asciilifeform: is this still called 'boss screen' or am i behind the times.
mircea_popescu: nothing to do with that.
asciilifeform: then i have nfi?
mircea_popescu: it's not fear. it's anxiety.
asciilifeform: what anxiety ? why females
mircea_popescu: anxiety is a subjective experience of loss of control. tends to be females because of accidents of their anatomy leave a mark in the early psyche.
mircea_popescu: but boys can be taught to live in the same terms np, and plenty do.
mircea_popescu: (george costanza's famous "Ear puberty, nose puberty, knuckle puberty. You gotta be vigilant!" is quite a fine example in that vein.
asciilifeform: even with this,
asciilifeform: more effective number diddler ought to give stronger illusion of control ?
mircea_popescu: not really, the control isn't over the interaction of numbers. the control is over the possibilities of existence.
mircea_popescu: the more powerful the tool actually is, the more it exposes possibilities, necessarily. and perversely, the more threatening it is to the typical she-office drone.
mircea_popescu: note the acceptance of computers in society as an exact mirror of the use of windows and apple. it's a thing.

asciilifeform: i haven't a good why. why won't mircea_popescu do short chicks ?
asciilifeform: goats ?
asciilifeform: chickens ?
mircea_popescu: i confess i actually did a chick that was short and otherwise built entirely like a 12 boy. well, minus the penis, but boobs as big as mine et al.
mircea_popescu: so... don't laugh at the goat, you never know when you'll be riding one.

mircea_popescu: so there's your explanation.
mircea_popescu: "at least the stupid one shuts up."|
asciilifeform: does it ?!
mircea_popescu: yeah. stupid people are never given enough credit. they're broadly speaking pliable, reliable and altogether pleasant.

mircea_popescu: as per alf's earlier pronouncements, who'd want a wife like that ?
asciilifeform: keyless wife is liable to get switcheroo'd, also
mircea_popescu: i dun think i could be bothered to plow an unkeyed field tbh.
mircea_popescu: let the ravens do it.
danielpbarron: well i've given this some thought, and i just don't see the point of the wife signing anything about it as she should now act as one flesh with her new husband; if she needs something notarized, let him do it for her
mircea_popescu: why not let her do it for him ?
danielpbarron: that too
danielpbarron: but the point is they are as one key, one flesh
mircea_popescu: it\s a slippery problem.
danielpbarron: it's like the penny auction collsion problem
mircea_popescu: in the old days, woman wouldn't generally appear too trustworthy before she had fucked most everyone. but it's a truly complex point to communicate.

mod6: how do i know who im talking to
asciilifeform: danielpbarron: how do you issue an order, or take a dispatch, from a keyless animal ?
danielpbarron: well you could have an unpublished key to use for that purpose
danielpbarron: but that's not the same as an assbot registered key
mircea_popescu: what is this "unpublished key" ?
danielpbarron: a key that only you and her know
mircea_popescu: P stands for protocol, not for promise.
asciilifeform: danielpbarron: and after you wed the bayonet on the field ?
mircea_popescu: danielpbarron since that'd have to be single use, you're better off with otp
asciilifeform: how does wife relay ?
danielpbarron: so use otp then
mircea_popescu: but otp can't sign.

asciilifeform: yes, one can marry cow.
asciilifeform: but this has distinct down-sides.
mircea_popescu: can one ?
mircea_popescu: i'm not entirely sure i'd recognize cow marriage. heck, im doubtful about same gender marriage.

mircea_popescu: this it may well be.
mircea_popescu: this aside, the trade in mates has been historically and will permanently remain a major economic factor. as unwilling to admit people may find themselves. nevertheless, it's rarely an actual market.
mircea_popescu: (trade does not need a market to happen, note)
danielpbarron: true i wouldn't call it any sort of market
danielpbarron: or it's more of a decentralized trade
danielpbarron: prospective husband goes to father of prospective wife
mircea_popescu: more of a doublespoken one, too. hence veblen goods and the trillion a year cosmetics industry.
danielpbarron: or guy finds young girl in field, takes her, father insists they now marry
mircea_popescu: it's not entirely clear father has much say.
danielpbarron: king has say
mircea_popescu: how do kings work in a republic ?

mircea_popescu: you seriously proposing someone should get killed because dude stumbled over nude girlie ?
danielpbarron: wait who should be killed in that situation?
mircea_popescu: a little death. let's not exaggerate.
mircea_popescu: i dunno, i'm trying to follow what you';re saying here.
danielpbarron: i meant in a republic the king gets killed
mircea_popescu: well then he can't have much say can he ?
mod6: for instance, what if the king of jordan wanted to be in TMSR? why wouldn't autocrats be able to be in the wot?
mircea_popescu: mod6 i don't see why he couldn't be.
mod6: just because 'king' doesn't mean they still can't get neg rating
mod6: so, no problem.
danielpbarron: i guess i was imagining the reverse, a republic under a king
mircea_popescu: well, it does mean they can afford to pay if they fuck something up, so neg rating kinda less likely.
mod6: but still, individuals may come, and try, there's a fresh crop every year.
mod6: further, some make it, most don't.
mod6: and also in other news... I'm going to publish a one line change to add a bit more strictness (less fuzz) to the map building part of V -- was basically overlooked on the last beta patch (#3). So this one will be #4, and barring any further big issues, this should be it.
mod6: Should be ready for a new V release by the weekend.

mod6: oh yes. at first thought, this seems like a much needed thing.
phf: maybe press a new genesis with skull&crossbones in comments of header of every file. patch file contents will be identical, but hashes all different
mod6: i even had a thought, and im not even sure its feasible technically or just logically, but; we could perhaps create a wrapper for gnu patch where we strip out lines that are surrounded with "%%" or something similar to how it does with "@@", this would ultimately be needed in vtron as well to avoid issues. But the thought is, then we could put comments directly in the vpatch (surrounded by '%%') and
mod6: then if V sees one of these comments with "%% EXPERIMENTAL %%" then it builds a seperate flow
mod6: heck, i dunno, i gotta sit and think on it for a while.
mod6: that maybe a horrible idea. lol.
mod6: anyway, i'll think about how to make this a thing.
mircea_popescu: why not use the current comment symbol ?
mircea_popescu: b ut no, you do not wish to introduce state.
mod6: yah, see. not well thought out mod6.
mircea_popescu: different genesis makes different tree, it's all there.
mod6: ima think about it though, probably try some different things.

shinohai: ^ will do first thing in the a.m.
mod6: np, gonna give an additional step here in a sec.
mod6: so what would be great here, is if you apply the patch, or use the attached to the email (check the sigs ofc), then start clean, do a fresh `./ i`, and then press out the entire tree, `./ p v v054 asciilifeform_maxint_locks_corrected.vpatch`, then `cd v054` and run that find command at the top of this paste
mod6: You should end up with the exact same sha512 hashes as listed in the paste. Let me know, either way.
mod6: Thanks in advance everyone. Salud!

BingoBoingo: In other news when I was at the store today acquired 1lb carbon zinc battery for great justice
BingoBoingo: Not sure if exactly one pound, but given it's heft that's what it feels like.
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: where do these go ?
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: for great justice
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Nah, 6v "floating lantern" to toss into trunk of car and hopefully forget for 3 years until it needs replacement
asciilifeform: why not cranked lantern?
mircea_popescu: this fucking climate is beyond comprehension. IT GETS LOTS WARMER AFTER THE SUN SETS.
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Because if I need lantern light I'm probably going to need enough light to illuminate active worksite
mircea_popescu: how the fuck is 1 am 5 degrees above 1pm ?
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: Welcome to my world. Several days last week high of the day was immediately before sunrise.
mircea_popescu: is it some weird like "during day air moves off river, but at night direction change, hot air moves from plain towards river" or somesuch ?
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Precise monster zinc carbon went into is "everready dolphin" which walmart had on clearance, for same price as blue pogo which has moved still further down.
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: Here it's "so much plains air moves with impunity"

punkman: still not sold on the dual genesis, but if the foundation moves forward with this model, I suggest the new genesis is the release/production/stable branch and the existing genesis the experimental one.
