mircea_popescu: and alf was complaining...
deedbot: fromphuctor voiced for 30 minutes.
deedbot: fromphuctor_ voiced for 30 minutes.
mircea_popescu: trinque btw, why is deedbot so slo ?
deedbot: ez_ voiced for 30 minutes.
mircea_popescu: this is kinda lulzy.
mircea_popescu: $up fromphuctor
deedbot: fromphuctor voiced for 30 minutes.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: lel
asciilifeform: www still up tho.
mircea_popescu: aha. prolly a setting in python neh ?
asciilifeform: what's interesting is that this barf is ~disabled~
asciilifeform: turns out setting - ignored.
mircea_popescu: modern software.
asciilifeform: burnitall(tm)(r)
mircea_popescu: $up fromphuctor_
deedbot: fromphuctor_ voiced for 30 minutes.
asciilifeform: turns out it's on hnews now.
asciilifeform: hence the mega-torrent-of-flies
mircea_popescu: i guess they showed us, huh.
asciilifeform: 5-10/sec.
asciilifeform: $up gabriel_laddel
mircea_popescu: anyway. can you get it back to normalcy ?
deedbot: gabriel_laddel voiced for 30 minutes.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: it is up!
asciilifeform: grunting at a MB/s or so, yes
mircea_popescu: server should be ok up to 100/s sort of levels.
asciilifeform: recall it is also trb.
mircea_popescu: at least in teh-ory.
mircea_popescu: yeah but trb really doesn't load worth the mention. especially if caught up.
asciilifeform: or if helping other folk up
mircea_popescu: don't you wonder why is this so scary btw ?
mircea_popescu: $up fromphuctor
deedbot: fromphuctor voiced for 30 minutes.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: waiwut
asciilifeform: ah yeah
asciilifeform: first few thou didn't even bother clicking
mircea_popescu: almost like it has terrorism scent all over it.
asciilifeform: apparently!
mircea_popescu: $up fromphuctor_
deedbot: fromphuctor_ voiced for 30 minutes.
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: ahahahaha cosmicrayz again
BingoBoingo: what else?
mircea_popescu: teh schedule proceeds unabated!
mircea_popescu: i suppose within a few hours it makes the front page (again) and then it gets replaced with an "official science" replacement...
asciilifeform: with 'why japanese toilets did not catch on in america!'
mircea_popescu: $up fromphuctor
deedbot: fromphuctor voiced for 30 minutes.
asciilifeform: i will be disappointed if the new replacement for the phuctor story is not jp-toilet related.
gabriel_laddel: lol. nice job with phuctor btw ascii. exciting times.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform incidentally, according to amazon, trilema is biggest in japan.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: mega-unsurprise, iirc their entire economy consists of old men browsing pr0n
fromphuctor: What does it mean whe the public exponent is not prime?
mircea_popescu: what's pron got to do got to do got to do with it...
mircea_popescu: fromphuctor do you know how rsa works ?
fromphuctor: It's a public key encryption scheme, right?
mircea_popescu: there's a difference between "what it is" and "how it works".
fromphuctor: I'm reading the linked post now.
mircea_popescu: gabriel_laddel how's life treatin ya anyway.
asciilifeform: $up fromphuctor_
deedbot: fromphuctor_ voiced for 30 minutes.
gabriel_laddel: mircea_popescu: sometimes not really having a job is a bit of a chore.
mircea_popescu: and sometimes having one is.
fromphuctor: How are these prime numbers chosen? I understand it is very hard to find prime numbers.
mircea_popescu: lol they'll run out of dashes.
mircea_popescu: $up fromphuctor__
deedbot: fromphuctor__ voiced for 30 minutes.
asciilifeform: $up fromphuctor__
deedbot: fromphuctor__ voiced for 30 minutes.
gabriel_laddel: Anyways, I'm a bit busy atm, have not been able to get the full masamune replication working, which is irritating. but I do have customers waiting on me, which is exciting.
mircea_popescu: fromphuctor it's not that hard to find prime numbers. in general, rsa keys should be seeded from a good entropy source.
mircea_popescu: (note that e is almost everywhere 65537, which is both prime and cheap.)
mircea_popescu: in fact... 65537 makes SUCH a good e, not using it is triple-eyebrow raising.
fromphuctor: Okay. So the size of the prime number does not matter that much for the security of the cipher as the entrophy source.
fromphuctor: Wouldn't a bigger prime exponent be more difficult for an adversary to crack?
mircea_popescu: the size of e is not particularly relevant ; it not being 65537 is very suspicious. it being non-prime is even more suspicious.
fromphuctor: Okay. So apparently a lot of people messed up their cryptography, and had non-prime exponents (or very small primes) for some weird reason.
asciilifeform: $up fromphuctor_
deedbot: fromphuctor_ voiced for 30 minutes.
mircea_popescu: fromphuctor that is last week's news. this week's news is that ACTUAL KEYS were cracked.
asciilifeform: the texas instruments key, for instance.
fromphuctor: Oh. That's really bad, isn't it?
asciilifeform: fromphuctor: for them.
mircea_popescu: for whoever relied on that key, it is.
mircea_popescu: $up GyrosGeier
deedbot: GyrosGeier voiced for 30 minutes.
GyrosGeier: I'm trying to submit my key, but keep getting an error
fromphuctor: Why were these keys so easy to crack? Were they due to faulty implementations of the cryptosystem?
asciilifeform: GyrosGeier: what kind of error ?
GyrosGeier: is there any restriction on what keys are accepted?
asciilifeform: GyrosGeier: RSA only
mircea_popescu: fromphuctor most likely subverted pgp implementation.
GyrosGeier: Error: Was that really a GPG public key? Try again.
asciilifeform: GyrosGeier: you probably have a DSA or ECDSA key.
mircea_popescu: GyrosGeier dpaste what you're trying to stick in, maybe.
GyrosGeier: RSA 4096, with three RSA 2048 subkeys
asciilifeform: GyrosGeier: pastebin the key plz
fromphuctor: So my SSH keys are probably not compromised, assuming my cryptography software wasn't broken by the government.
fromphuctor: Would that be a good assumption to make?
mircea_popescu: fromphuctor you can export them and check yourself. then no need to assume anything.
GyrosGeier: that is --export-options export-minimal --export --armor
fromphuctor: How do I do that?
asciilifeform: GyrosGeier: you have utf8 rubbish in that key
asciilifeform: GyrosGeier: the box is not set up to handle this yet. sadly.
mircea_popescu: i thought that was fixed last time ?!
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: nope, pythonism
GyrosGeier: ah, so I need to strip out those UIDs
mircea_popescu: GyrosGeier you'll have to try again later, once this is caught up with.
fromphuctor: My SSH keys came when I used the ssh-keygen command. How do I export them?
mircea_popescu: or wipe the uids if you know how / can.
asciilifeform: GyrosGeier: it will be handled in near future.
asciilifeform: these are being piled up.
GyrosGeier: do you actually need an UID in there?
asciilifeform: GyrosGeier: nope. optional.
GyrosGeier: that makes filtering the packet stream easier
asciilifeform: fromphuctor: it is nontrivial to convert ssh key to pgp key format.
mircea_popescu: i guess we'll have to write a tool for this eventually, willy-nilly.
mircea_popescu: people will just keep asking.
asciilifeform: apparently!
fromphuctor: Apologies. I'm not that good at cryptography.
fromphuctor: Thank you very much for your efforts and help. I sincerely appreciate it.
mircea_popescu: fromphuctor either you go read up on and do the conversion / publish the tool, or else wait for someone to do it.
fromphuctor: Thank you. Have a good day.
asciilifeform: $up fromphuctor
deedbot: fromphuctor voiced for 30 minutes.
mircea_popescu: lol check out submarine beds.
GyrosGeier: seems to have worked
asciilifeform: GyrosGeier: congrats
asciilifeform: $up fromphuctor_
deedbot: fromphuctor_ voiced for 30 minutes.
GyrosGeier: we'll see if anything falls over with no uids and signatures :)
asciilifeform: ;;later tell phf logz are down ?
gribble: The operation succeeded.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform server is actually doing pretty good, considering.
GyrosGeier: lots of famous names in there
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i massaged the hell out of it
mircea_popescu: nice job.
asciilifeform: GyrosGeier: the caveat is that anyone can create a key with whatever name string in it.
GyrosGeier: good point
asciilifeform: e.g.,
mircea_popescu: yeah, fingerprints more important than names per se. though there's some orgs that got clearly raped.
GyrosGeier checks signatures
asciilifeform: GyrosGeier: some of the keys (marked 'mirrored' under 'notes') were part of an organized flimflam campaign by an unknown (likely nsa) party exploiting the fact that old versions of pgp used the bottom 32 bits of a modulus as the fingerprint.
asciilifeform: they took legit keys and turned the moduli into repeating lengths of the bottom 32bit of the old mod.
asciilifeform: and uploaded to sks net.
asciilifeform: $up fromphuctor
deedbot: fromphuctor voiced for 30 minutes.
GyrosGeier: indeed, but these shouldn't have signatures from me
asciilifeform: GyrosGeier: those will have signatures but gpg will correctly reject them as invalid.
asciilifeform: (if you find one where it does ~not~, please say!)
GyrosGeier: is there some effort to notify people?
GyrosGeier: I've found one from the same org as myself, with a key they use, which is signed by me, so that is clearly theirs
GyrosGeier: nm, found it
GyrosGeier will check back later, good night
gabriel_laddel: $up r00s

deedbot: r00s voiced for 30 minutes.
gabriel_laddel: Is anyone here deep into neural nets / ml?
mircea_popescu: GyrosGeier> is there some effort to notify people? << not really, feel free to notify whoever.
gabriel_laddel: And if so, are you familiar with the optimization techniques "optimal braindamage" or "optimal brain surgery"?
punkman: I sent a coupla mails after previous phuctoring, nobody wrote back
gabriel_laddel: (circa 1995 ish)
mircea_popescu: punkman same, iirc.
gabriel_laddel: ^ "Notes Essays-Peter Thiel’s CS183: Startup-Stanford, Spring 2012"
gabriel_laddel: Eventually these were compiled into the book Zero to One.
gabriel_laddel: I enjoyed them ~2-3 years ago
punkman: At the meeting with the BBC, Mr Wright digitally signed messages using cryptographic keys created during the early days of Bitcoin's development. The keys are inextricably linked to blocks of bitcoins known to have been created or "mined" by Satoshi Nakamoto.
punkman: Be assured, just as you have worked, I have not been idle during these many years. Since those early days, after distancing myself from the public persona that was Satoshi, I have poured every measure of myself into research. I have been silent, but I have not been absent. I have been engaged with an exceptional group and look forward to sharing our remarkable work when they are ready.
punkman: Satoshi is dead.
punkman: altcoin incoming!!1
punkman: "Mr Wright does not want to make public the proof for block 1, arguing that block 9 contains the only bitcoin address that is clearly linked to Mr Nakamoto (because he sent money to Hal Finney). Repeating the procedure for other blocks, he says, would not add more certainty. He also says he can’t send any bitcoin because they are now owned by a trust. "
adlai: danielpbarron: thx

mircea_popescu: so make it gpg format.
roxfan: yes, how?
mircea_popescu: it's rfc4880

mircea_popescu: roxfan not that i know so far.
roxfan: could the site be modified to accept raw numbers?
mircea_popescu: sure. write the modification and submit it.
piratsimon: Hi folks.
JusticeRage: Thanks for giving me voice. Did you get my MP about the debug mode?
piratsimon: tyvm for the v
piratsimon: just came along because phuctor said so. ;)
piratsimon: and now? ^^
pabs3: are you planning on revoking the keys you have factored?

mircea_popescu: $up fromphuctor___
mircea_popescu: JusticeRage did i get myself ?! hm ?
mircea_popescu: piratsimon would you be so kind as to post the software you used to make that key ?
piratsimon: that was really loooooooooong time ago.
mircea_popescu: maybe we actually manage to figure out who did what to whom here, it's suspicious as all hell.
piratsimon: guess i have to investigate that.
mircea_popescu: can there be a numeric value for this "loooooooooong time ago." ?
piratsimon: well at least i have to investigate the version. it was gpg for windows.
JusticeRage: mircea_popescu : didn't understand your answer
mircea_popescu: JusticeRage i didn't understand your question. people call me mp at times.
JusticeRage: I just came to mention that the Phuctor Flask app is running in debug mode
mircea_popescu: oh, still ?!
JusticeRage: That's a security issue and you should probably disable that :)
JusticeRage: At least it was the case a few hours ago
JusticeRage: I stumbled upon a stacktrace by accident
piratsimon: mircea, have u successfull attacked a private key you dont own and did you successfull decrypt some strong encrypted file wighout possess of the private key?
mircea_popescu: JusticeRage asciilifeform was bitching about it ignoring his settings earlier. he'll get on it once back.
mircea_popescu: $up fromphuctor__
deedbot: fromphuctor__ voiced for 30 minutes.
mircea_popescu: piratsimon no ; but given what we know about these keys it's a trivial exercise.
mircea_popescu: JusticeRage thanks for reporting.
JusticeRage: No problem!
piratsimon: thats quite interesting. interested in testing it? im gonna encrypt something and you try to decrypt not knowing the phrase nor possessing the private key? ;)
piratsimon: you dont have to but im just curious. ;)
punkman: piratsimon: post it on pastebin, maybe someone will give it a try
mircea_popescu: punkman it was unavoidable. dead men walking.
mircea_popescu: piratsimon sure, by all means post something.
piratsimon: deal. ;) gimme some minutes. ;)
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform you'll have to add verbiage explaining to the goodfolk that rsa keys specifically and uniquely are at issue ; somehow it's not obvious dsa/ecc/elgamaletc dun work.
mircea_popescu: lmao this thingee.
mircea_popescu: looks like it's done by the same "i fucking love science" ustard crew.
mircea_popescu: "He was Vice President of CSCSS (Centre for Strategic Cyberspace and Security Science) with a focus on collaborating government bodies in securing cyber systems. Wright has trained government and corporate departments in SCADA Security, Cyber Warfare and Cyber Defence."

mircea_popescu: lulzy "that key is not available" failscript, also. MUCH SECURITY!
mircea_popescu: hopefully it protected the aussie something or the other just as well!
mircea_popescu: anyway. domain reg'd feb 16th, first post april 26th. teh boyz poured their sweat blood an' tears as the expression goes. too bad it won't work.

mircea_popescu: is there some sort of reward associated or just sportstmanship challenge ?
piratsimon: just sportsmanship and curiosity. ;)
mircea_popescu: alrighty. in the meanwhile, you understand how rsa works ?
piratsimon: punkman suggested i should give an example via pastebin.
piratsimon: so voilá there it is. :D
piratsimon: yes i do. but i bet you are right now deeper in the topic than me. ;)
piratsimon: im just curious how long it does really take to break it. you know, theory is one thing, doin it another. :D
mircea_popescu: generally, it takes someone to care enough.
shinohai: Is it just me or are logs not synced?
shinohai: and good morning #trilema
mircea_popescu: you used gpg: public key is E5FF86FA

mircea_popescu: that's not in there either.
mircea_popescu: $up tribut
deedbot: tribut voiced for 30 minutes.
piratsimon: thats why i was curious what key you did factorize? because - yes - it was my name and a really old email address of me. but actually not my key. not even my revoked one.
tribut: mircea_popescu: thanks
piratsimon: no tribut, didnt, did not had that url util now. let me read it fast.
mircea_popescu: piratsimon you could ask that then, neh ? the pile of keys being worked on come from a dump of sks servers.
piratsimon: sry mircea. that was a classic misunderstanding. we both did assume something. ;)
mircea_popescu: for my benefit, list said assumptions explicitly.
piratsimon: anyhow, wont bother you any longer. ;) have a nice day. we got finally sunshine. bb
piratsimon: and my apologies for that itsybitsy misunderstanding. :D
mircea_popescu: no big deal.
mircea_popescu: you have to realise however that if eve is trying to eavesdrop on alice's communications to you,
mircea_popescu: the most effectual approach is to put a broken key of yours up on sks, and wait for alice to mistake it for yours.
mircea_popescu: particularly effective if you don't even know alice ; and no you wouldn't know you missed anything.
mircea_popescu: the specific sort of broken keys listed there (ie, with mirrored low 32bit modulus) is obviously an' very much designed just for this purpose.

Valfor: Saw the contact mention this irc chan
Valfor: and so came here, as I was intrigued
iceblox: Hello there, I found my key to be in the sadmods and followed the contact link :)
danielpbarron: oo interesting. how did you make that key?
iceblox: Using gpg --gen-key, but about 13 years ago
danielpbarron: what version, on what operating system?
iceblox: I have no idea what version, operating system was NetBSD 1.6 for sure
iceblox: maybe 1.6.1
danielpbarron: is your key actually broken or is it just a weird exponent?
iceblox: public exponent is not prime
danielpbarron: you mind sharing which key is yours?

asciilifeform takes off hat.
asciilifeform: iceblox: if you are sure that the key is yours, actually yours, (there is a number of keys on sks maliciously corrupted in a way that they appear to have the legit fingerprint when viewed in certain pgp clients)
asciilifeform: iceblox: then try please to determine the client you used
asciilifeform: best of all, if you can find a copy of the source.

mircea_popescu: asciilifeform yeah i meant the other ones. the "naively broken" ones,
mircea_popescu: which seem mostly to be a case of "take p, q random numbers, skip on testing for primality."
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: my conclusion 1y ago was that the enemy is pretty good at factoring wholly-random-int rsamods.
asciilifeform: (it isn't so hard.)
mircea_popescu: if you think about it : for any random number, the odds of being divisible by 3 are 1 in 3. and by 7, 1 in 7. and the sum of this converges etc.
Apocalyptic: 17:19 <+mircea_popescu> which seem mostly to be a case of "take p, q random numbers, skip on testing for primality." // having a fully factored modulus would help to confirm this
asciilifeform: my other hypothesis is that this was 'warmup' and current diddled pgptrons use somewhat more subtle magick
asciilifeform: Apocalyptic: the presence of small primes more or less clinches it
mircea_popescu: Apocalyptic i recall you were running miller-raqbin last year ?
mircea_popescu: if you care to hack a py script, i think it could be bolted onto phuctor.
Apocalyptic: asciilifeform: presence of small primes would happen either way, however if your modulus N has k bits and the biggest prime factor has k/2 bits, you could easily conclude that it wasn't generated the way mircea proposes
mircea_popescu: well within some sort of probability.
Apocalyptic: mircea_popescu: I factored a 32-bit mirrored one yeah, currently i'm trying to factor a non-mirrored small one
asciilifeform: Apocalyptic: so far very little is known for certain. but the presence of multiple tiny primes is heavily suggestive of random int.

Apocalyptic: asciilifeform: re earlier thread I was considering either random p and q then multiplied, or whole modulus is random. Obviously the latter could not occur since the software couldn't compute phi(N), hence doing anything usefull with it.
Apocalyptic: so yeah no k/2-bit prime to be expected in modulus
asciilifeform: Apocalyptic: there are reasons why someone might generate wholly unusable modulus and post to sks.
Apocalyptic: There might be, the resulting thing is a degree of magnitude less usable though
asciilifeform: there appear to be at least two types of phucked moduli
Apocalyptic: including the 32-bit mirrored ones ?
asciilifeform: and it stands to reason that they were born in separate places for distinct reasons.
Apocalyptic: so far I also see the two categories
asciilifeform: the 32-bit mirrored ones are a fairly transparent ploy
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: lel, yet another firm wasted hours of my time only to barf when told that i refuse to 'top secret'
mircea_popescu: Apocalyptic i just interpreted your argument to mean k/4
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform ftr, there are VERY MANY people refusing to top secret for very many good reasons.
mircea_popescu: one is that they pay fails to compensate the risks (trivially verified : find insurer who will indemnify you for any and all responsabilities in exchange of fraction of extra salary)
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: fact is, i'm approaching ~unemployable
Apocalyptic: mircea_popescu: why k/4 ? my argument was if the whole modulus is random, then we can expect a k/2-bit prime factor, if modulus is random p times random q, then we can't unless p or q is actually prime (assuming p and q same size), which is quite unlikely if truly random
mircea_popescu: as with all failing empires in history a) the better commentary happens among people who do not have the empire's language as native language ; b) the hassle of obtaining official seal of whatever exceeds the benefits.
mircea_popescu: Apocalyptic p and q randomly generated can still produce a prime factor somewhere in there, perhaps as large as 1/4 of the length of the key.
mircea_popescu: ie even with p, q obtained straight from /urandom, you can still see a 1024 bit prime or somesuch
mircea_popescu: i don't recall right off how you calc the probability, but it is indeed tiny.
Apocalyptic: yeah but why the 4 specifically ? for all you know you can have a k/3 prime as well
mircea_popescu: hey, whadda ya want from me, when trying to rescue statements that are trivially broken i use heuristics!
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: prime number theorm
Apocalyptic: the important thing is k/2 prime enables to distinguish between the 2, a k/4 prime doesn't, as it would occur in both cases

mircea_popescu: also, consider registering your key with deedbot
mircea_popescu: helps build your identity, and you'll be able to self-voice.
fromphuctor___: i need to figure out how to convert plain key to that base64/der stuff
fromphuctor___: will the submit page tell me my key is malformed if i made a mistake?
asciilifeform: was there really..?
asciilifeform: i can't wait to listen to the tape of 'my' talk.
asciilifeform: at shitcon.
asciilifeform: or wherever.
mircea_popescu: no idea ?
mircea_popescu: you're asking me who you talked to ? what am i, the omniphone ?
asciilifeform: well i did not in actuality give any such lecture
asciilifeform: in real life.
asciilifeform: but perhaps someone gave 'for'.
asciilifeform: y'know, a henninger.
mircea_popescu: eh reddit ; who even has teh energy.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: l0l looks like moar ddos.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform it won't last, server's pretty well supplied.
mircea_popescu: let 'em try.
mircea_popescu: incidentally, i just remembered : << this of any use ?
asciilifeform: pretty basic rfc4880 parser thing aha
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform but it also has a convertor to mpi/b64
mircea_popescu: $up andrej235
deedbot: andrej235 voiced for 30 minutes.
asciilifeform: for folks trying to understand the format, it is worth a read
mircea_popescu: PGencode.js particularily interesting i thought as it really takes base64 pubkey and puts it through rsa.js
mircea_popescu: so isn't this pretty much 99% of bignum->rsa in pgp format ?
asciilifeform: agonizing to read on account of shitlang
asciilifeform: and the million kludges it needs to do basic things
asciilifeform: (e.g., ordinary integers)
mircea_popescu: << the comments peculiarily amusing.
mircea_popescu: "windows clock moves in 18.2 ms jumps"
asciilifeform: 'We need an unpredictable session key of 128 bits ( = 2^128 possible keys).' << lel
mircea_popescu: still. it has a key parser that works.
asciilifeform: i actually came across it before, when cataloguing known pgptrons
asciilifeform: (hunting for 'magical' ones)
mircea_popescu: i put it on my pgp page on trilema,. forgot all abpout it, now stumbled on it all over again
mircea_popescu: blogs rule.
mircea_popescu: but yes, pretty nifty as you can use it to send a [sorta] encrypted message entirely via web
asciilifeform: just like keybase!1111111

deedbot: plp voiced for 30 minutes.
mircea_popescu: you sound almopst like you're expecting something.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: there is always the 1 reader in a million who says something applicable.
asciilifeform: mega-unsurprise that he did not appear, sure.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: picture if you threw a match into latrine and it roared with fire like jet engine.
asciilifeform: yes, it is quite clear that latrine will not be flying anywhere.
asciilifeform: but still impressive.
mircea_popescu: of course he appeared ? we got all sorts of workable ideas for phuctor!
asciilifeform: i don't recall any new ones
mircea_popescu: well "new", nothing's ever new.

phf: since today is a looking at stats day, btcbase is at modest 3500 hits right now, which has been the average since about april 6th, but note that the day is not over and system has been down for almost 8 hours. the number of hits brought by referer has spiked though to ~~500, and looking at graph roughly correlates to trilema posts. not surprisingly the top referer is trilema at ~~1000, followed by qntra at ~~600 and phuctor at ~~80.
phf: (the last three values are totals)
phf: the-phuctoring is second top ref from trilema, losing out by a large margin to top ref ill-pay-for-your-tits

asciilifeform: << and he's got the obligatory 'we did it first, move along!' thing going. 7h ago.
asciilifeform: incidentally, didn't the derp already have a 'we did ALL the keyz' post LAST may ?
asciilifeform: so how come he has to hastily do it (with henninger's proggy no less, see his shithub) ~now~ ?

ben_vulpes: path dependency's a bitch.
ben_vulpes: but hey!
ben_vulpes: you could be fielding questions from clients past about why you billed them nine hundred grand for misc. support over the month.
ben_vulpes: look at the upside! think of all the tacks you don't have to chew!
asciilifeform: $up zgrep
deedbot: zgrep voiced for 30 minutes.
asciilifeform: ben_vulpes knows that i chew only rusty nails mixed in liquid shit
asciilifeform: never tacks.
trinque emits a parser error
ben_vulpes: unrelatedly, datomic is a *very* spiffy data abstraction layer.
asciilifeform: wats that
ben_vulpes: proprietary proggy that sits atop your $db of choice
ben_vulpes: effectively a distributed prolog-alike db, to the extent that i can be trusted to call something 'prolog-alike'
asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: ever play with symbolics 'joshua' ?
ben_vulpes: the answer to 'ever play with symbolics *' is always 'no', dude.
asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: download 13333333333333333337 w4r3z and run emulator
asciilifeform: it (mostly) worx.
asciilifeform: alternatively,
ben_vulpes: not an expert system, not ai, not anything special.
ben_vulpes: simple an EAVT data store with a single threaded writer. caches recent images of the db in peer memory (yes, 'immutable' db).
asciilifeform: like 'elephant' ?
ben_vulpes: but i don't know enough about elephant to say.
ben_vulpes: seemed very specifically a CLOS data store.
asciilifeform: it is spiffy
asciilifeform: mostly shoots in the head the need to think about db
ben_vulpes: mostly, except as trinque discovered when one goes to do joins.
asciilifeform: but tricky to set up (it refuses to work on a great many 'modern' linuxen due to library retardation)
ben_vulpes: when, smack back in SQLland.
asciilifeform: iirc trinque was using conventional sql ?
ben_vulpes: elephant on PG.
ben_vulpes: because if it cannot support multiple web hosts, it is not a db with which i will fuck.
asciilifeform: what means 'multiple web hosts' ?
trinque: tbh I'm willing to consider that if you wrote too many layers of joins and views, you chose the wrong data structure in the beginning
asciilifeform: >1 instance of apache? or what
ben_vulpes: asciilifeform: yes, that. or your actual logic layer of choice.
ben_vulpes: whatever it is that returns the JSON that sends mircea_popescu scrambling and screaming for the "programmer's view"
phf: Datomic is piece of shit for non-trivial datasets. I don't understand how they could steal so much old lisp tech and still manage to fuck it up
asciilifeform: phf: the perennial question re shitware, no ?
ben_vulpes: phf: knows from experience?!
asciilifeform: think of, e.g., java.
asciilifeform: 'stole so much, delivers so little'
ben_vulpes: i wish i had the historical perspective to even know.
ben_vulpes: mostly, i find rocks of various sharpness and heaviness and use them to beat my local reality into shape.
ben_vulpes: phf: i would like to hear about what kinds of misery you've found in datomic. not to doubt! never to doubt the misery of technology. but out of curiosity, and limits-finding by proxy.
ben_vulpes: (and also as previously discussed in logs, the scraps on my table are rarely of "web scale" magnitude)
phf: Sorry I'm on phone and just needed to pipe in. But I picked up datomic on a project as "clojure take on allegro cache" and I was expecting similar performance (tens of millions of records on a reasonable machine)
ben_vulpes: > allegro cache
phf: Needless to say it's nowhere near there. Be prepared to grok both datomic and the underlying store.
ben_vulpes: yeah, i only run on postgres for that precise reason.
phf: Basically the game becomes "how does query translate into PostgreSQL so I can index all the things"
phf: And those proverbial millions of records require really beefy machines. 8gb of ram, fast flash drives, etc
ben_vulpes: it is the classic "db that looks good but needs tender loving care from its authors to work well" software trap.
phf: Don't worry you can hire them to consult :)
ben_vulpes: i harbor no illusions in this regard.
ben_vulpes: were i not desperately trying to eke my own living out i would most likely be camping outside of the cognitect offices until they took pity upon me and let me sweep the floor.
ben_vulpes: > allows programmers to work directly with objects as if they were in memory while in fact the object data is always stored persistently << stinks of ORM shit-dippery
asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: wats that
ben_vulpes: "object relational model"
asciilifeform knows ~nothing of this.
ben_vulpes: may ye long remain ignorant of it
ben_vulpes: Foo.objects.get(pk=20) or Foo.objects.get(name="Stan")
ben_vulpes: 'tis the root of the success of Rails and friends
trinque: b-but y'know sql is hard and so caked shit atop
ben_vulpes: "you mean i don't have to think about the db!?!?"
