phf: trinque: so i take it person/rating is what i'm looking at?
trinque: yep
trinque: soon as I get to it, rating's going to get switched to foreign keys; I'll warn you first
trinque: as it stands, it's using indexed unique fields
trinque: and the other change that'll affect you is I'm moving it to another box, will let you know of that too

phf: it is because you hate freedom
trinque: I don't feel alive unless I'm rolling around in broken glass
phf: i wonder if there are hidden implications to making all nicks case insensitive for /log/
trinque: I think TomServo's the only one like that; I could just fix it
trinque: had a moment of "dear fucking god, IRC is case insensitive" after he complained
trinque: then realized I had to go back through and add lower() to the queries
phf: i have one (get-nick ...)
trinque: at which point fixing the caps didn't matter
trinque: thing is even if I change the schema I'll probably replace rating with a view of same structure
trinque: that way you don't have to keep track of my schema changes

mircea_popescu: $up tfoxbrewster
deedbot: tfoxbrewster voiced for 30 minutes.
mircea_popescu: lol deedbot wheels spin audibly.
mircea_popescu: tfoxbrewster you the forbes guy ?
mircea_popescu: how goes ?
tfoxbrewster: all good.
mircea_popescu: fine. so did you want to ask some questions ?
tfoxbrewster: yes. the Ethereum guys are suggesting that the claim you took the ether - - is untrue.
tfoxbrewster: Their comment: "The message claims to contain a cryptographic signature in the last line. ECDSA signatures of the sort used by Ethereum are 65 bytes (130 hexadecimal digits) long, and end with '00' or '01'. The number at the end of his message is the right length, but ends with '20', making it an invalid signature.
tfoxbrewster: If the attacker wrote the message, there would be no reason for him not to provide a valid signature. If the message were written by an impostor, on the other hand, they'd be unable to generate a valid signature, and would have reason to make their message more convincing by adding a fraudulent one.
tfoxbrewster: For that reason, I'm certain that the message is a fraud, written by someone who wants to stir up trouble in the community."
tfoxbrewster: Thoughts on that?
mircea_popescu: tfoxbrewster well, you familiar with the satoshi/hoaxtoshi communications this year ?
mircea_popescu: because this isn't a single item, it's a third in a trifecta.
tfoxbrewster: i am indeed. explain the trifecta/
mircea_popescu: now, the usg assets in bitcoin (gavin & all) didn't like this, and whined about the signature. so i said : swear it ain't so. in writing. they... didn't.
mircea_popescu: then there was the whole craig whatever incident. where the usg assets in bitcoin (gavin & all) swore as to the authenticity of a gross fake.
mircea_popescu: the difference between those two and this third is instructive and important : in those instances, the usg was trying to spin a narrative that'd allow it to claim it's still alive and relevant, in front of proof to the contrary from ~already established accounts~. ie, satoshi.
mircea_popescu: here, there's no historical establishment. the guy lives through his deeds not through a lengthy, boring story about "hey listen, back in 1920 carnegie and j p morgan were pretty cool so we should still be getting free petrocheese and chinese plastics for this reason".
mircea_popescu: in other words : signatures there were retrospective, attempting to build a historical chain. "this x is that x which you respect so respect this".
mircea_popescu: the signature here however is prospective. "this is a signature you don't know what to do with. at some later point, maybe you will."

mircea_popescu: broomstick eventually becomes machine gun of lulz.
mircea_popescu: and in other lulz : wordpress interface dies if one tries to publish a 10mb text article with "unknown error". apparently this has never happened before.
mircea_popescu: if the item in question is uploaded via ssh-mysql directly, phpmyadmin (common mysql interface) dies when trying to say "edit" the column, and wordpress itself fails to pipe the content to apache.
mircea_popescu: they have pages worth 20 to 100 mb worth of shitty gifs, but can't display 10mb of a god damned s expression.

mircea_popescu: for which part ? at no point is a FILE being manipulated here.
Framedragger: ah yeah, i probably meant POST request
mircea_popescu: but yes i'm sure there's "a limit" put in there by people who don't belong touching computers.
Framedragger: mircea_popescu: post_max_size  in php.ini, apparently set to 2M by default?
Framedragger: it seems that you can modify it in .htaccess with php_value post_max_size 20M
Framedragger: such joy
mircea_popescu: Framedragger that may explain the part where the first part fails, i guess. but not the 2nd part. both php items (wp, phpmyadmin) should be able to list a 10mb sql record.
mircea_popescu: Framedragger notice the interlocking magic numbers of shit!
Framedragger: heh yeah, if no POST involved in phpmyadmin reply, and there shouldn't. lol.

ascii_deadfiber: where, if anywhere, is this described ?
ascii_deadfiber: or did todd whisper it to BingoBoingo's ear personally
BingoBoingo: ascii_deadfiber: Address starts with 3 has been the convention for pederastry ever since multisig happened
ascii_deadfiber: i don't grasp how 'this tx is valid if $offchainsoup condition is true' is a 'soft' fork.
ascii_deadfiber: it necessarily forks the chain
ascii_deadfiber: into folks who see 'valid' and folks who see soup.

ascii_deadfiber: mats: ar is quintessentially american (in the worst sense) device. consider even the fact of aluminum receiver, alone !
mats: a clean ar, when properly cleaned and lubricated, malfunctions once or twice in 250 rounds when used with polymer magazine
ascii_deadfiber: clean one?!
mats: on the other hand, some folks report seeing no malfunctions for ~30k rounds so...
ascii_deadfiber: and the other folks don't report, because dead..?
ascii_deadfiber: worx great!1111111
mats: they're not really designed to cycle through a ton of rounds
ascii_deadfiber: i would ask 'is it instead designed as a blunt weapon' but no, because aluminum
mats: a lot of the ones in regular army service only have semiauto mode
trinque: ahaha
ascii_deadfiber: so what, exactly, is it good for
ascii_deadfiber: do they even issue the bayonet with it ?
ascii_deadfiber: can use as spear ?
mats: i heard rumors they stopped training folks on the bayonet
ascii_deadfiber: and instead training on what, anal lube for surrender ?
mats: some guardsmen in this state i've talked to have never seen a bayonet irl
mats: i dunno what to tell you man
mats: its pretty rare for someone to spend 250 rounds in a firefight
mircea_popescu: ascii_deadfiber alloyed aluminum is quite strong tho
mats: a lot of folks have gotten used to the idea that american airpower will always be available
ascii_deadfiber: not so strong that can be used as crowbar and then expect the clockwork to work.
mats: and it gets some dummies in trouble, ie, jessica lynch
mats: got complacent, didn't clean weapon, experienced malfunction ...
mircea_popescu: actually, mats afaik the "rounds fired per kill" in iraq is like 4mn or so ?
ascii_deadfiber: eh small arms weren't anything like majority of kills even in ~ww1~
mats: well we're talking about the ar
mircea_popescu: ascii_deadfiber certainly a majority of rounds fired tho
mats: fwiw i think its practical to disable burst and auto
mircea_popescu: 30k rounds from the gau would be quite the sight indeed.
ascii_deadfiber: how do you cover-fire without auto
mircea_popescu: "we're here digging a hole to china"
mats: squad assault weapon you brought along
mircea_popescu: mats and when he's dead ?
mats: pick it up.
mircea_popescu: what if instead of dropping where you are, it drops where he got killed ?
mats: that'd be a problem, yes
mircea_popescu: but yes, you're right, us army has more and more moved towards a "thin shit line" stance.
mircea_popescu: no strength in depth, break their charge take them all in for rape and goat herding.
mircea_popescu: much like the us police, for that matter. lafond has the whole story of "police is useless in a defensive role, which is ironic"
ascii_deadfiber: afaik ~all~ american hardware is optimized for 'we're winning effortlessly'
ascii_deadfiber: aviation, tanks (which use, what, 50L, simply to ~revv up~) etc.
mats: a lot of units don't issue polymer mags, but instead, some less reliable aluminum ones
ascii_deadfiber: genius - to make part which will lead to dead man if it bends by 1mm, out of al.
mats: procurement is ridiculous
ascii_deadfiber: mircea_popescu: it's a 'chessboard' (or what is this called in engl.?) double-row mag
mircea_popescu: yeah but srsly, 0.1 prolly jams it
mircea_popescu: i << wider than 1mm
ascii_deadfiber: probably.
mircea_popescu: o brother
ascii_deadfiber: lulzy, picked random photo, and it has plastic turds with cracked feed lips !
mircea_popescu: isnt' the whole fucking point of making them out of plastic that you can throw them out

mats: i'm sure somebody with a vested interest in aluminum magazines made this decision
mircea_popescu: mats seems more like a desperate imperial attempt to retain relevancy.
mircea_popescu: ie, someone with a vested interest in the obsolete notion that what the army "authorises" has any sway on battlefield
mircea_popescu: and it's not entirely a "black guerilla family brings bricks of heroin home" operation

thestringpuller: i can't receive multisig transactions
mircea_popescu: just don't send it back out, the whole thirty bitcoin churning around bullshit will die down soon enough.
ascii_deadfiber: receive how !?
mircea_popescu: much like the 4-500 btc left in capital to prop up the ethereum "BULLION DOLLAER!!111" "alternative" something-or-the-other.
mircea_popescu: ascii_deadfiber because 3 can pay to 1address.
thestringpuller: ascii_deadfiber: for segwitz and multisig output. you can reject payments until outputs are buried under enough blocks.
mircea_popescu: but yes, /me has routinely answered with "3x is not a bitcoin address, fix your implementation". ever since multisig, actually.
a111: Logged on 2016-06-21 20:41 thestringpuller: awesome
thestringpuller: but the 3x paying to 1x is a problem if oyu can't verify the output.

mircea_popescu: this means :1. illiterate and 2. mentally dim. i'm not sure 2 can be understood by anyone who has never interacted with the subhuman population of the 3rd world, but it is this bizarre situation where speech does not serve as a condensed version of the future.
mircea_popescu: they're closer to hens, chirping to each other to stroke a mutual feeling of safety predicated on nothing in particular ; than to people describing what they intend to do and how they intend to do it.
