ascii_butugychag: i was hired, for instance, partly on the basis of my ancient shithub acct
ascii_butugychag: Apocalyptic: because of the 'deniable' sabotage of replacing moduli with random ints
mircea_popescu: ascii_butugychag in that case, let's put it in storage i guess.

mircea_popescu: so this is pretty epic shit : i made http://dpaste.com/3M78HFY for alfie's own peace of mind. except suddenly and inexplicably, stuff that worked before ( like http://archive.is/EluFr ) no longer works now!
mircea_popescu: pages load forever and whatnot.
mircea_popescu: good for you meuh .
meuh: For example http://phuctor.nosuchlabs.com/gpgkey/67E9EA1CF1D38646A5B745EBCC7EEC4916C6A6DB2B76B09E635A08905F94E79B
meuh: It doesn't feel right
mircea_popescu: meuh it will report every time it sees that modulus.

ascii_butugychag: but now see the down-side, aha ?
meuh: mircea_popescu: think i got it, the site reports "Modulus Seen Elsewhere! Please make sure these are yours:" for signatures made on other keys, and I have to check I've made those signatures with one of my key
mircea_popescu: ascii_butugychag it's some anon russian guy. if you think rando usg endowment is a better shot...
ascii_butugychag: meuh, mircea_popescu : this happens IF AND ONLY IF the modulus recurrs in its entirety inside another key.

ascii_butugychag: ah hm.
ascii_butugychag: meuh: do you understand why dupes are listed ?
meuh: coz' they have the same modulus ?
ascii_butugychag: say you, like a n00b might, sign the message 'yes, meet me at midnight on the crossroad'
ascii_butugychag: then someone else takes your modulus, and welds own username string to it
ascii_butugychag: and misrepresents.
ascii_butugychag: mircea_popescu: thing is not all that consistent, iirc
mircea_popescu: weird shit. anyway.
ascii_butugychag: and gpg creates dupes when folks sign one another's keys, yes
ascii_butugychag: there is no way to watch for mischief where modulus is lifted WHOLESALE, without also listing a boatload of this rubbish, unfortunately.

ascii_butugychag: (on archive attempt)
mircea_popescu: ah so we're now having a THIRD sort of problem.
mircea_popescu: pretty lulzy, imo.
meuh: OK, I need to investigate more (going to open again that OpenPGP RFCs) and don't waste your time. I originally tought there was a bug in the interface that was incorrectly reporting my keys as dupes because I've made a single armored export of the public key and feeds this as a single blob to the submission page
ascii_butugychag: meuh: not a bug.
ascii_butugychag: mircea_popescu: i tried 4 of'em, none work
ascii_butugychag: 'network error'.
meuh: ascii_butugychag: thanks
mircea_popescu: so before it was "error handling request" ; then it was cycling indefinitely in "queue". now it's "network error".
mircea_popescu: tbh i've never seen archive.is fail before.
ascii_butugychag: mircea_popescu: and at any rate 'they planted'em in 2013! who you gonna believe, obamitler or some ru rando'
mircea_popescu: ascii_butugychag seeing how sks itself reports them from 2002 to whatever, 2012, i dunno. lol.
ascii_butugychag: sks will report what told to report.

mircea_popescu: because, much like in the case of the miners getting caugvht with pants down, there is THIS interval right here.

ascii_butugychag: they disappeared the fucking kaiser.
ascii_butugychag: this is small change.
mircea_popescu: you say it as if it actually happened.
mircea_popescu: stupid ho screaming "nonono" with hands stuffed in ears is still getting raped, just like any other.

phf: but so far it's been just me uploaded announced patches whenever i see one
mod6: ah. you're missing a number of the later patches, but maybe that's because it's "shiva" ?

mod6: "larger digests?shaw!"
asciilifeform: for remote loading of src ?!
mod6: well, i guess technically, gradle doesn't even rely on digests at all.
mod6: it just looks to see if there is a newer version number by filename itself in the remote repository, and if so, pulls it.
mod6: so like "foo-1.0-SNAPSHOT" v. "foo-1.1-SNAPSHOT", it'll pull that if you ask it to reload dependencies.
mod6: but if you have "foo-1.0-SNAPSHOT" vs. "foo-1.0-SNAPSHOT" with a different hash because of different build, won't care, you don't get new file.
mod6: you have to explicitly tell it to --rebuild-dependencies or whatever the fuck
mod6: oh yeah. i have bile coming out of my ears on this shit.
mod6: especially when it fucks with me like today.

asciilifeform: re neutron thread ^^
BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> indiana sunk him. << Aha, Rush Limbaugh is going to be very mournful tomorrow. He really tempered his Trump support these past few months after he helped birth this incarnation of the Clinton Monster.
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Nice find
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: scored some of what appears to be the fiber from earlier thread from this fella. might come in handy at some point.

asciilifeform: sooooo here's a thought. perhaps esp. for mircea_popescu. usg luuuvvvvvvs puttin' neutron alarms everywhere. but what if the ... other side... set off 100,001 of them at once, on day x, with, e.g., pocket farnsworth's devices?

BingoBoingo: Not on front page yet, but if we all astroturf, they'll prolly surrender and run it.
BingoBoingo: "reader oriented" operated by a friendlier variety of spamzors than last ownership group et al.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform to what end ?
BingoBoingo: Drowning them in noise?
mircea_popescu: i can appreciate the "information wants to be free" "legalize dope" etc angle, but i dunno what exactly is the idea. anyone seriously intending to administer anything will have a ban on moving plutonium around.
BingoBoingo see more the inflicting costs angle. Gotta check out all those alarms.
mircea_popescu: i guess. seems pretty sophomoric.
BingoBoingo: $up distemper
deedbot: distemper voiced for 30 minutes.
BingoBoingo: Most ways of pricking the beast are sophmoric. Graffiti is sophmoric but they gotta spend to clean it up or they lose face.
mircea_popescu: with grafitti it's more a matter of execution whether it is or it isn;t
BingoBoingo: Even shitty graffiti if it persists projects the image "they" aren't in control.
mircea_popescu: yeah, but even if tomorrow you're the king and queen of earth, you'll be stuck trying to control pu shipments, want it or not.
mircea_popescu: it's one of those.
