ben_vulpes: wtf this was working yesterday
botneko-chan: Why all that panic about filled up backlog and slow transcations? Sent btc today with 0.0005 fee and it got 6 confirmations in 2h
ben_vulpes: there's no actual panic, botneko-chan. there are a zillion for-hire-for-pennies social media accounts supporting some nsa plants attempts to matter with kindergarten grade psyops.
ben_vulpes: phf, nevermind, i'm a classic core derp
botneko-chan: I support Core too
ben_vulpes: botneko-chan: what is Core?
botneko-chan: I mean main bitcoin dev team and so, not a forks like Classic or XT
ben_vulpes: what do the Core people think about increasing the block size?
ben_vulpes: botneko-chan: ^^
botneko-chan: I'm actually not very interested in btc politics, but in my opinion if increase block size then miners would get less profit from tx processing when there would be no new btc mined. Mining would become non-rentable and hashpower will decrease after some time then making easier for someone to get 51% just by turning on ol ASIC that was turned off because of low profit. I'm okay with current blocks and higher fees, in my o
botneko-chan: not for cents, there is need to design overlay network for faster low-fee small payment processing instead of increasing block size

ben_vulpes: hm actually i upped you so how would i know
cazalla: well, i just auth'd so no matter

SuchWow: ben_vulpes: i have no complaints lol
SuchWow: whatever, it's literally true, it's just a tag, get over it lol
ben_vulpes: well i'm just having a conversation with an old friend i haven't seen in a few weeks, but thanks for getting involved!
SuchWow: hey now, you upped me lol :)
ben_vulpes: why so butthurt
SuchWow: about what?
cazalla: still have those dogecoin investments SuchWow ?
ben_vulpes: anyways, how's the second cooking, cazalla ?
SuchWow: cazalla: nah i stopped trading about 1.5 years ago, and have been working IT ever since, no time for trading
cazalla: ben_vulpes, good, missus looks bigger the second time around for some reason, prenatal appt with nurse today confirmed that as well
SuchWow: i still watch charts and chatter daily just to keep up with it for fun tho
ben_vulpes: how many weeks along?
SuchWow: congrats
cazalla: girl, due early june, 5 months, not sure on weeks top of my head
cazalla: thanks SuchWow
ben_vulpes: that's two!
cazalla: ben_vulpes, how's your little one?
ben_vulpes: two dowries!
ben_vulpes: cazalla: rolled over the other day!
cazalla: fun times :)
ben_vulpes: there's only so much damage the little fuckling can do in 485 ft2
cazalla: i am looking forward to those things again, times seems to have gone so fast with the first, one moment he can barely roll and lift his head but now it's all walkin' and talkin'
ben_vulpes: your first was a male?
cazalla: yeah, a boy named Noah, he turned 2 January just gone
ben_vulpes: pardon, i misremembered.
cazalla: all good, kids galore here these days, easy to lose track
ben_vulpes: starting to give a shit about his dad yet?
cazalla: i get more cuddles and kisses, but he only turns the tears on if mum leaves, not when dad goes out, doesn't seem to care as much
ben_vulpes: MORE FROWNING
ben_vulpes: << four months in, beginning to reheheheally feel this
assbot: Logged on 24-12-2015 08:11:50; *: mircea_popescu is reasonably impressed. had ben_vulpes pegged for "this guy's managed to put himself in a texbook model of a place where guys crack".
cazalla: it's as hard as it is enjoyable
SuchWow: Just out of curiosity, what do you guys think about ethereum, meaning this chan in general
SuchWow: i'm not super well versed, but it's come up enough to make me go hmm, plus those charts are cray cray lol

gribble: 30.14
SuchWow: punkman: haha
punkman: 1 bitcoin of ETH at first sale is worth 30 now
SuchWow: cazalla: that's reasonable. i don't really either, it's just that it's been hard to NOT hear about that one over the last year
SuchWow: yeah pre-sale woulda been nice, but i don't blame myself one bit for not buying the hype
cazalla: SuchWow, even if it was the second coming, idgaf as it will inflate forever
SuchWow: wasn't there some thing where the algo was gonna force POW to stop and switch to POS even tho no POS algo had been invented yet
SuchWow: did they ever fix that i wonder
ben_vulpes: i wonder how the conversation drifted from parenting to shillcoins
cazalla: not sure, from what i know it will change to pos at some point and then inflate the supply forever
ben_vulpes: must be that dogecoin guy again
cazalla: well, back to parent, ben_vulpes did you end up going ahead with co-sleeping?
cazalla: how is that going?
ben_vulpes: putting the pressure on to get him into his bassinet more regularly
ben_vulpes: well he sleeps through the night, let's start there
ben_vulpes: stirs a mite, gets fed, goes back to sleep.
SuchWow: ben_vulpes: i just asked a question, why so butthurt
cazalla: from 3 months, my boy slept 7pm-7am like clockwork, but when teething began so did around 6 months of shitty sleeping
SuchWow: anyhow, i'll leave you guys to it, be well!

SuchWow: well, in their defense
SuchWow: they said that a lot of this is really just resurrection of 'the old ways'

SuchWow: yeah i found that interesting as well
mircea_popescu: so what are you doing these days ? wanna test my mmorpg ?
SuchWow: having only been here a few years
SuchWow: working IT repairs/custom installs/refreshes/etc
SuchWow: currently vacationing in vegas lol
SuchWow: but the poker scene here has died so much over the last 5 years
SuchWow: that it's day 3-4 and i'm litearlly in my hotel room chatting on irc because this place just ain't what it used to be lol
mircea_popescu: yeah, vegas is yet another sanded harbor in the history of civilisation.
SuchWow: it's now a hotel-centric business
mircea_popescu: kinda sad, for all who knew its past glory.
SuchWow: and casinos are the loss leader
SuchWow: it's so fuckin weird
SuchWow: cuz i used to come here all the time
SuchWow: <+mircea_popescu> kinda sad, for all who knew its past glory.

SuchWow: was living in Cali $50 plane tick, starte going just for fun
SuchWow: and never gave it back haha
mircea_popescu: back when the hotels were the loss leaders.
SuchWow: finally they cut me off and said fuck you back lol
SuchWow: yes exactly lol
SuchWow: and back when they respected poker as well
SuchWow: that's the only thing i ever really did on my trips
SuchWow: poker + free drinks
mircea_popescu: well because it was the loss leader also. people went to lose money to champs just on the basis of hte brand
SuchWow: poker was always the loss leader, even during the boom
mircea_popescu: "oh i played with chow" "o yea ? how'd you do ?" "folded three hands!"
SuchWow: but now there is literally no tourist market for poker anymore
SuchWow: and half the rooms that have been jere decades
SuchWow: have closed or 50% in size/moved/etc
SuchWow: it's really sad for me to see that, but at the same time
SuchWow: vegas is still doing alright
SuchWow: it's just catering to a different ceowd
SuchWow: they also cleaned up all the hookers and homeless
mircea_popescu: yeah lol. government workers.
SuchWow: like literally, poof, gone
SuchWow: (for the most part)
SuchWow: it's becoming a destination resort town, with gambling offered as just one of several differnt options, no more special weighting
mircea_popescu: no more tables, no more cocktail waitress cocksuckers off duty waiting for teh winners, no more vegas!
SuchWow: no, they're all there
SuchWow: that's the surreal part
SuchWow: it's all still there, people are doing it
SuchWow: but it's different people
SuchWow: and it's just no logner the focus
SuchWow: the hotels would almost rather you not gamble as much as before
SuchWow: and instead spend $20/day on hotel wifi
SuchWow: and the recently increased across the board prices
SuchWow: on literally everything in the city
mircea_popescu: << the concept that you fit in there still boggles me.

SuchWow: and wifi is 20/day
SuchWow: i'm in the wrong business lol
mircea_popescu: $30 a night ?! such can't be had in all of buenos aires.
mircea_popescu: i mean there's some REALLY seedy places here, "hotel familiar" etc, literal hookers and bums,
SuchWow: $30/night has always been attainable on downtown vegas strip
SuchWow: that's not new
mircea_popescu: yeah. just saying.
SuchWow: it's all the *other* charges that are very targetted and new
SuchWow: last time is was $12.99
SuchWow: 5-6 years ago when i was last here
mircea_popescu: the idea of paying for wifi is so weird.

SuchWow: just not my style and not what i came for lol
SuchWow: but it is surely more profitable for everyone involved, so i get it
mircea_popescu: government workers.
SuchWow: mircea_popescu: what do you think about the pres candidates
SuchWow: synopsis lol
SuchWow: you think a lot, more than me even
assbot: BitBet - Donald Trump gets Republican Nomination :: 137.71 B (62%) on Yes, 83.19 B (38%) on No | closing in 1 month 1 week| weight: 20`618 (100`000 to 1) ... ( )
SuchWow: rolf
SuchWow: was just looking at that
SuchWow: someone linked it elsewhere earlier
mircea_popescu: i didn't even bet, myself. but i think it's pretty much on the money.
SuchWow: but what is the end game
SuchWow: it's either trump v sanders, or v hillary
SuchWow: and i think sanders won't be 'permitted' 'able' to win
mircea_popescu: prolly hillary.
SuchWow: i think the whole damn circus is just a scripted mess to get hillary in
mircea_popescu: see there's this thing where they "prepare" future candidates. sanders may well get 2020.
SuchWow: which is fine, as she is the only candidate giving us the highest probability of continued stability
mircea_popescu: aha, quite exactly.
SuchWow: 'business as usual, etc'
SuchWow: whilst simulatenously appeasing outliers
SuchWow: buy giving sanders more support than perot, nader, and paul cpombined
SuchWow: thus enforcing the illusion that we are all really choosing the outcome

SuchWow: same hypothetical said about btc many times also tho
SuchWow: because he upped me lol
SuchWow: duh
SuchWow: as i said, i enjoy our bi-yearly talks lol
SuchWow: figured i'd bring my a-game for once ;)
mircea_popescu: tis much less of a hypotetical, tis a factual. look into the structure backing it if you're bored.
SuchWow: if nothing else, proving that trust/relationship can be established even without use of ratings bot lol
SuchWow: mircea_popescu: you're talking about eth, but saying not btc?
mircea_popescu: i can't say i'm not flattered nsa's trying their idea of "the mp approach", but in the famed words of knight, "get the fuck off the horse!"
SuchWow: or a combo of the two
mircea_popescu: entertainment and trust are orthogonal matters SuchWow
SuchWow: how did we get back to politics lol
mircea_popescu: but yes, an inkling of trust necessarily must stem out of outside the wot.
SuchWow: did the gov't have anything to do with creation of btc?
SuchWow: (just hypothetical by means of same token)
SuchWow: i knwo is unfairly braod Q lol
SuchWow: sry, wrist hurts
mircea_popescu: well, if it did or if it didn't, it's not like the case of ethereum in any sense.

SuchWow: (i am incredibly not well versed in eth tho admittedly, just the snips i hear here and there weekly on various chats/forums)
mircea_popescu: no wait, that's maybe not it. wtf was it,.
SuchWow: i certainly started watching that chart for fun tho, as i always do for btc/ltc/doge, a few months back
SuchWow: has been a wild ride, and i called a lot of the movement correctly
SuchWow: (but of course had zero invested due to no free time)
mircea_popescu: well, basically the story of eth is, "what if we made a b-a, except not on irc but in a spare closet at a usg-sponsored university, and we tried to get idiot kids on reddit excited and inept javascript developers contributing code and MAKE A BETTER BITCOIN in the sense that it'll suck where bitcoin hurts us."
SuchWow: now that's the most interesting tl;dr i've read yet
mircea_popescu: then i went into them financially and they actually burned a few millions propping it up, and that pretty much brings us to the present day.
SuchWow: right that's what gets me
SuchWow: i remember them fundraising etc
SuchWow: no prospects for growth
SuchWow: and then suddenly it's a currency and it starts acting like dogecoin, value/price-wise

mircea_popescu: and so, here we are #2.
SuchWow: except that it seems to be maintaining the illusion longer
SuchWow: do people even consider eth to be a beta
SuchWow: or still alpha
mircea_popescu: SuchWow hey, govt has a lot of experience running ponzis. heck, social security is still somehow magically protected by illusion.
SuchWow: i've seen the page listing all the amazing proof of concept contracts/programs

assbot: ... ( )
mircea_popescu: sooo... it pains me to say that bitbet was just on the receiving end of a concerted miner withholding attack.
mircea_popescu: specifically : a set of a dozen or so txn that were trying to pay out winners of a bet went out, only to be "ignored" by the network. they all spent the same inputs. this went on for about a week.
mircea_popescu: once a transaction that DIDN'T spend the same inputs was announced and confirmed, the OLD transactions were somehow found, and are now broadcast.
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 160428 @ 0.00056684 = 90.937 BTC [-] {5}
mircea_popescu: this adds an entire layer of breakage to the already broken bitcoin infrastructure. specifically - due to chinese miner collusion (and yes they do control over 50% of the network) it is impossible to guarantee payment at ANY point in the future.
mircea_popescu: because they can sit on a transaction more or less forever.
mircea_popescu: the damage in this case is ~17 BTC, which whatever - cdb.
mircea_popescu: HOWEVER - bitbet will NOT ever make 2nd transactions for any reason and in any case.
mircea_popescu: this means that if you are waiting on a payment - you got to talk to a miner. bitbet will not further consider any complaints of this nature.
mircea_popescu: kakobrekla ^
kakobrekla: this is a problem.
mircea_popescu: the problem is broadly speaking that bitcoin is not actually fit for commerce, and that fixing it necessarily requires changing the pow to exclude f2pool/antpool/etc.
kakobrekla: afaik would not happen if you would select same inputs to be used for second tx or alternatively rebroadcast the first one
mircea_popescu: kakobrekla this is what i was doing for a fucking week.
mircea_popescu: however - since bitbet publishes the payout addresses, it's trivial for them to know what to sit on.
kakobrekla: the currently unconfirmed tx has 0 fee ?
mircea_popescu: one of the many. understand that there was a set of these.
kakobrekla: and the 29 blocks confirmed one has 0.00022
mircea_popescu: the one you see now was broadcast originally saturday.
kakobrekla: one of txes with erroneous 0 fee also got lost after a 2 or 3 days a couple of days ago
punkman: gotta try to spend/move the old inputs to be sure old transaction doesn't suddenly reappear
mircea_popescu: punkman except spending goes through the same process generally.
mircea_popescu: if spending worked, the problem wouldn't exist in the first place.
mircea_popescu: but spending doesn't, actually, work.
punkman: myeah, but gotta wait until you succeed before sending 2nd payment
kakobrekla: the problem isnt bitbet being targeted. the problem is 0 fee and the fact you can know if uncofirmed tx is out of EVERYONES mempool.
mircea_popescu: but the whole KEY of the thing is that this "wait until you succeed" ~= infinity.
mircea_popescu: kakobrekla understand : just because they picked one particular txn out of a set of txn they withheld should NOT be an argument they may bring.
kakobrekla: anyway, tx is unconfirmed at this time with 0 fee, it will take a while to get included in a block if it even will be. you can try to doublespend those inputs to a different address and save the btc.
mircea_popescu: and the one doublespending it with a fee is... not visible. right ?
mircea_popescu: i'm sorry. i mean... sorry for your win.
mircea_popescu: or... wait, how did it go ?
kakobrekla: txid ?

kakobrekla: that is the doublespend of de9bc173174f5ae97e7fe0d2e171647cade189c76f9cbe48f37494c973aca2e4 ?
mircea_popescu: well, i'm going to make more, and try to mine them and etc, but yes.
mircea_popescu: anyway. miners must be broken, burned and the land fucking salted.
mircea_popescu: worst enemy of the coin.
kakobrekla: its possible you are connected to a node pocket - trb do not like non-trb nodeas (ban hammer) so they are only left connected (mostly) to trb, not prb which you need if you want the world to see your txes

mircea_popescu: "Received 17 minutes ago Confirmations 3/6 "
mircea_popescu: how do you like that!
kakobrekla: for all we knowKnCMiner or whoever mined it, had it in his mempool all this time.
mircea_popescu: they're witholding blocks (what, you think the blocks you see are the blocks at they're mined ?!), they're withholding txn now, etc.
mircea_popescu: kakobrekla yeah, had it in sidepool for 4 days, waiting to see if i repay it without doublespent. which i did. today. 2 hours ago.
kakobrekla: actually no need to rebroadcast in that case, you can just include in block - would not see it as uncofirmed at all.
kakobrekla: so somebody else had it as well.
mircea_popescu: understand : at the time you saw it as "broadcast" it was ALREADY included in a block
mircea_popescu: that was at the time withheld.
ben_vulpes: waiwut how does it make economic sense to not release blocks?
mircea_popescu: because miner colusion, again.
kakobrekla: it could be malicious act by someone who won that bet. saw a 0 conf tx and tried to take advantage of this what just happened.
mircea_popescu: you don't see nasdaq data straight, but with half hour delay
mircea_popescu: why do you expect you see block data ? chinese miners have their own pre-time network.
mircea_popescu: kakobrekla only miners in control of well over 90% of hash can attempt this sort of inept shit.
kakobrekla: anyone could have done it as long as it fools you that it has been 'forgotten'.
mircea_popescu: in fact - once you have 51% you can withhold blocks forever with impunity - time works in your favour.
kakobrekla: and needs resigning.
mircea_popescu: the only anyone who can destroy a txn is the anyone who controls the mining.
kakobrekla: flood of txes + 0 fee tx brings about good chance of falling out block readers
mircea_popescu: i can't comprehend what you're trying to argue here. you're roughly in the position of a prison warden facing an empty cell and a hole in the wall going "hey, water infiltration can sometimes make holes in walls"
mircea_popescu: yeah, i'm sure they can.
kakobrekla: its not impossible you will make a tx from some inputs, which will be 'forgotten' and say fuck you [i only a slight problem so far as long as the tx hex is published and can be rebroadcast] and then later on use those same inputs for another tx [i have a larger problem with that]
kakobrekla: because you leave it the bitcoind to select the inputs.
mircea_popescu: say wut ?
mircea_popescu: look, let's try and get on the same page here. so saturday (sunday by bitbet time) the 20th (21st) this bet was resolved and paid out. the transaction doing this used some inputs to pay out the winners. let's call it tx A1.
assbot: BitBet - Jeb Bush will be Republicans' 2016 Presidential Nominee :: 1.63 B (9%) on Yes, 16.49 B (91%) on No | closed 1 week 2 days ago ... ( )
mircea_popescu: later throughout the weekend, tx A1 was not visible in the bitcoin network, in spite of being broadcast to 100s of peers.
mircea_popescu: as a result, tx A2 was created, monday, spending the same inputs, paying a fee, and was broadcast.
mircea_popescu: throughout the following 48 hours, neither A1 or A2 were visible on the network.
mircea_popescu: a flurry of other txn, all spending the same inputs and paying ever more in fee were broadcast up until, most recently, march 1st (~16 hours ago).
kakobrekla: you pay out bet A with inputs Ia and sufficient fee. tx gets 'lost', not confirmed. people bitch. you post the tx hex so people them selfs can re-broadcast it. however for as long as that tx is not included in the block you can not spend those same Ia inputs.
mircea_popescu: about three hours ago, tx B, with the same outputs as An, but with different inputs was broadcast. this tx was visible in the mempool throujghout the network as normal, and was included in a block in half an hour.
mircea_popescu: about half an hour AFTER that inclusion, transaction A1 was REBROADCAST, and within 20 minutes of its rebroadcasting, in spite of no fee, low miner priority etc, was included in a block.
mircea_popescu: this is, unless you're insane, sufficient proof that
mircea_popescu: a) a majority of miners (ie, pool operators) on the bitcoin network conspire together to selectively deny valid transactions
mircea_popescu: b) the same majority of miners is running a withdheld block scheme, where they keep about a half hour time differential between the ACTUAL head of the bitcoin chain and what they published.
mircea_popescu: both of these are serious concerns, and both of these are, strictu sensu, sufficient to prove, not to propose, that bitcoin is not actually functional.
mircea_popescu: moroever, both of these are factual matters, on the basis of observed behaviour.
mircea_popescu: that's about it.
kakobrekla: thats one explanation however taking in account my own experiences with it - i am by your definition insane.
kakobrekla: anyway, for as long as the original tx is not included you must be careful not to spend those inputs in another tx. even if that means forever.
mircea_popescu: look, i know oodles of people have observed what to them seems "just normal wierdness"

BingoBoingo: <asciilifeform> wake me up when it's time for the keccak knife. << Is there a possibru lAb project here?
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: understand, i do not need moar projects for anything.
asciilifeform: but when it is time for the knife - it will be time for the knife.
asciilifeform: (unless mircea_popescu wants to do it himself, which in his place i probably would)
BingoBoingo: Of course not, but mebbe keccak miner can be pet project for pet to play with? Every cat needs string, or in their absence lasers.
asciilifeform: pet does other things.
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo im writing a qntra piece re the thing, gimme an hour.
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: Cool, ty
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Pretty much the definition of pet is gets to do what it wants, but many pets take suggestions.

BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: Apparently the dude sold the site to another dude and retroactively converted the sale into a lease by claiming US copyright law.
assbot: devthedev trying to scam ??? ... ( )
BingoBoingo: The scammed dude asked me how to present his dilemma in a way that makes sense that this was the distillation I found most obvious
BingoBoingo: Of course the solution in the long run is to stop trying to do the kind of deals which make this wankery a possibility
BingoBoingo: The WoT, many thought they could find an easier, softer way...

asciilifeform: mats: the crapple aspect is interesting though. the laptop monoculture means that folks can finally be relied upon to have the 'standard' antenna.
asciilifeform: i.e. particular length of the bus, and clock.
asciilifeform: whereas when i was doing it as a boy it worked on one 486 box but not another, mostly-identical one.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i had this exact same experience when making the alphago bet. only difference is that malleation was involved.
asciilifeform: the days-old high-S tx was mined ~immediately~ after i broadcast the doublespend low-S.

mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo for soime reason indentation's off.
mod6: Again, this is for -recompile- only. Not for initial build. Not for newbs either.
mod6: mircea_popescu: interesting day re-betbet txn & miner witholding.
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: It's how the html you submitted parses. Looks legible even if some line spacing is weird. I just assumed you did that for emphasis.
mircea_popescu: mod6 quite.
asciilifeform: mod6: i have exactly that script.
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo you have two uls in there in succession, wipe one
mod6: the 99997 one were were talkin about yesterday asciilifeform ?
mod6: or the rotor script?
asciilifeform: the latter.
punkman: mircea_popescu: were the disappeared transactions low-s btw?
mod6: ah cool - yeah maybe post in here at some point. builders may fnd it helpful if they haven't made their own already.
mircea_popescu: punkman yes.
mod6: asciilifeform: also, cool work you started with gossip in asm on a eth card.
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: ty, fxd
asciilifeform: mod6: long ago
asciilifeform: it is gathering dust sadly
mod6: ah. ok, just looking for more time or for someone to pick up where you left off?
mod6: << seems ok. at least a guy can rebroadcast.
assbot: Logged on 02-03-2016 00:11:53; kakobrekla: i guess its time to add 'raw hex tx' data for re-broadcasting to bitbet resolved bets
mircea_popescu: it's certainly a step in the right direction
mircea_popescu: (rub miner's nose in their doo-doo)
mod6: yeah, this stuff has gone too far.
asciilifeform: kakobrekla has it.

ben_vulpes: rental miners
ben_vulpes: this was a thread?!
mircea_popescu: rented from... whom ? bitfury ?
mircea_popescu: samsung ? the fabled garage miner that hasn't existed since 2013 ?
ben_vulpes: are there no hashrentiers in the wot?
mircea_popescu: bitcoin got a problem, and it ain't no stinkin' "scalability". au contraire.
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes understand, this isn't a field that takes well to distribution.
asciilifeform: i did warn, re mining.
ben_vulpes: the fiat competition was supposed to solve this, but unfortunately the trumpenreich is just TOO GODDAMN INCOMPETENT TO EVEN COMPETE WITH THE CHICOMS
mircea_popescu: pretty much the only way to handle centralization in mining as it is designed is through periodically picking up the fattest pig and throwing it through a glass pane.
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes aha. the americans did what they do best - lost.
mircea_popescu: fabulously, utterly, completely, 18 months they're wiped.
ben_vulpes: gl0rious v1ctory!

ben_vulpes hums 'throw the jew down the well'
mircea_popescu: doesn't it mean "shift bits by this many" ?
punkman: you can never know with c++ :P
mircea_popescu: it's either "shift bits by this many", "output to this entity" or else "pleasure my wife"
ben_vulpes: i have had two beers and a glass of wine since 5pm and none of that has made me nearly as ill as this line of cpp
punkman: except someone overrode "pleasure my wife" and it's now "rape my mouth with 12 inch dildo"
ben_vulpes: aaaaa
ben_vulpes: right because '>>' can be overridden at the...object(?) level in c++
hanbot: hey mircea_popescu, is it okay if i defer this month's pc4 report and combine in april?
