thestringpuller: trinque: dunno if this is reasonable: but for !!wot could we possibly also get !!signedwot ? That is deedbot returns a signed wot-sexp timestamped from some point? doesn't have to update in real time, maybe once a week? ty for your time.
thestringpuller: mod6: what's jeezy's numba one rule ? ;)
mircea_popescu: these "social sciences" idiots. so don't you know, online polls are "unscientific" because they're "opt-in", ie they reflect the views of people who wish their views reflected. meanwhile their "scientific" polls are what, they call people up, ask them some questions, and if those people hang up they ??? get a court order ? get the schmuck sentenced to jail without a definite term, us style, "the key is in your pocket mr!" ?
mircea_popescu: "we allow trivial enumeration of users! just like facebook! and reddit! whoooo!"
mircea_popescu: the terms of art are giant douche and turd sandwich pete_dushenski
mircea_popescu: oops i mean PeterL
thestringpuller: interestingly the masses want to bring that same choice to bitcoin. luckily its kinda immune to the stupidity.
thestringpuller: maybe people just want to choose between a turd sandwich and giant douche.
mircea_popescu: i dunno about that.
shinohai: choose thy master for next 4 years
thestringpuller: or any debate really. BingoBoingo made a really good blog post about it in relation to sports fanatics.
mod6: <+thestringpuller> mod6: what's jeezy's numba one rule ? ;) << don't get caught
PeterL: mircea_popescu in this case it is fun to go with the anatomical descriptions to complement Johnson
trinque: thestringpuller: I would rather change !!wot to encrypt to the key making the request.
mircea_popescu: not like it's not public ?
trinque: isn't that, but rather, he wants to know he got the wot dump I sent
trinque: really this is a problem of the wire, not the bot
mircea_popescu: but he doesn't get to know that.
trinque: yeah, as I think about it, seems like not a thing.
mircea_popescu: did i miss this discussion in the log ?

mircea_popescu: if you're gonna sign it might as well dump it in the deeds. but it seems rather excessive.
thestringpuller: never thought i'd hear that from mircea_popescu
mircea_popescu: !#s excessive from:mirc
a111: 34 results for "excessive from:mirc",
mircea_popescu: anyway. jus wait for gossipd, it'll solve this.
trinque: ^^^
kmalkki: apu2 (with AMD PSP) does respond properly to JTAG IDCODE
kmalkki: but there is off-by-one error in the bitstream in shift DR stage for HDT commands
asciilifeform: kmalkki: iirc in evil mode, it jtags (for pin testing) but won't halt
Framedragger: couldn't find anything after (very) cursory glance at logs, so, random question #667: has anyone considered crawling tor hidden services for their rsa (1024 bit iirc!) keys, and dumping them into phuctor? apologies if there was already a discussion with regards to this.
Framedragger: as of now this is more-or-less trivially doable. later, tor will move to a new hidden service model where it'll be more difficult to crawl for things. (right now, you can run a node which after a while (if stable enough, etc.) becomes a hidden service directory, and then (if you're sneaky enough) you can log all hidden service key requests, therefore obtaining a large bunch of fingerprints -> public keys.)
mircea_popescu: iirc was briefly discussed, nobody gave much of a shit about tor
asciilifeform: Framedragger: iirc this was suggested but nobody did
Framedragger: keyword for future log searches: hsdir
mircea_popescu: i think you might be the only fan here.
Framedragger: such fan!11
Framedragger: well it'd amount to public service for current HS operators; perhaps indeed too much effort. but many lulz, and educational. ok, gotcha. not committing to anything, will ping asciilifeform if i obtain anything. :)
mircea_popescu: there was (perhaps more usbstantially interesting) an effort to get the historical databases with silk road junk as maintained by some pothead sifted, both for rsa keys and whatever else
mircea_popescu: but this also went nowhere.
Framedragger: also for future logs: (i know i know, noone cares)
Framedragger: mircea_popescu: oh, yea. maybe it was this gwern dude. (his summary of studies on melatonin *was* helpful for me, so there's that...)
Framedragger: gotcha.
mircea_popescu: yeah, pretty sure it was
mircea_popescu: !#s gwern
Framedragger: (gwern is this eclectic fella who collects all kinds of trash on his site. interestingly, sometimes it piques one's curiosity. )
Framedragger: aha, okay
asciilifeform: at one point i was interested in tor, and ran several nodes, but strictly from the point of view of malware collection.
Framedragger: asciilifeform: right, cool. i guess if one runs a node they may as well collect some additional info.. i may still have a 'respected' node private key laying about, may be possible to collect those HSDir requests. (but i agree that it may not be very productive effort)
mircea_popescu: iirc even at the peak of the whole "anyone could have sent me fake ids with my picture on them because there exists this thing online called silkroad i'm not related to" pothead mania, less than hjalf the idiots used encryption at all, and a tiny fraction of traffic was actually encrypted coming from relatively few keys. as in hundreds rather than hudreds of thousands.
mircea_popescu: who knows, possibly shitter than average though.
mircea_popescu: speaking of tor & the rest of the retard community, ""Mariana's Web" does not exist. For anyone trying to be the "Jacques Cousteau of the Dark Web": There is no "going deeper". There are no "levels". Please stop asking how to get there."
mircea_popescu: ahahaha man. THE DEEP WEB! such a comedy goldmine.
Framedragger: "I had to be quick and stelth" probably apt description of deep web security
Framedragger: iirc there *was* a buncha keys on silk road v1. but, not ruling out key re-use / sybil identities.
mircea_popescu: << if anyone has an email hacker.
mircea_popescu: Framedragger i vaguely recall some data about how 1/3 of all encrypted comms on sr historically was from/to usg and its merry band of thieves under another name.
Framedragger: hahaha. well, fair enough, can't see why that couldn't have been the case. but if so, even more hilarious!
mircea_popescu: this guy is epic.
asciilifeform: chesterton was there first, in 'man who was thursday'
Framedragger learns of "red rooms"
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform that story was so fucking retarded...
mircea_popescu: what, the central council of anarchism and the conveniently-involved uninvolved poet ?
asciilifeform: no moar retarded than life
mircea_popescu: i guess ; at least for any definition of life that permits the continued existence of the reddit scum.
asciilifeform: 'the scum you will always have with you' or how did it go.

thestringpuller: something about the kindergoth's hardcore attitude that is inspiring...

mircea_popescu: first they can't have halloween candy ; then they can't fight, or climb trees ; or be home alone ; or touch ; or etcetera. by now it's ... pretty much endless re-dos of carmen winstead.

BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> in other news, "i am vampyr and you can't be vladimir because it's too close to vampyr"<< LOL
mircea_popescu: names dude. the only reality allowed the lost.
pete_dushenski: !#s lael brainard
pete_dushenski: "Lael Brainard, the Federal Reserve governor overseeing new technology, says the decentralized method of record-keeping introduced by Bitcoin has the potential to transform multiple aspects of the financial system." << mkay glhf with that 'blockchain' bizniz

a111: Logged on 2016-10-12 12:10 asciilifeform: << quebec !
pete_dushenski: << same as market in sexual assault, verbal abuse, chauvenism, and the rest of the made-up excuses for firing capable dudes in a power grab and replacing them with hags like lael.
a111: Logged on 2016-10-12 19:46 mircea_popescu: much to everyone's couldn't have predicted, there's no genuine MARKET in child porn etc.
mircea_popescu: how do these relate ?
mircea_popescu: there's an obvious incentive for someone to fuck his coworkers : they're there ; i have nfi what "verbal abuse" is, but in principle putting people in their place through means other than hitting them in the head is cheaper, so there's evidently a market ; chauvinism is like revolution or progress, anything to anyone and therefore uninteresting.
pete_dushenski: maybe they don't relate except as loosely applied tags or labels for individuals disliked by socialists. not knowing or caring what the words actually mean, libtards just conjure up accusations like 'child pornographer' or 'verbal abuser' when being dismissive.
mircea_popescu: anyway. there's evidently stuff like say peter scully's being produced. the notion that some sort of market drives this however is ridoinculous.
pete_dushenski: !#s peter scully
pete_dushenski: so not the scully from xfiles cuz that was a chick.
mircea_popescu: some dude, tall old total nut face, butchered an infant in a very sexual manner on tape, apparently tortured a bunch of others. had ran off from au to the philipines for some legal reason.
pete_dushenski: anyways, looks like a hot chocolate kind of day today. the snow started lightly last week but is coming down in earnest today. prolly 10cm on the way.
pete_dushenski: too bad there's not more logs to keep me warm. quieter around here without turbo-alf.
mircea_popescu: evidently teh enlightened policies of the centralised socialist state, from misrepresenting it as a market to whatever the fuck they do work splendidly : the worst on record dates from last year.
mircea_popescu: such success etc.
asciilifeform: pete_dushenski: believe or not, i am doing something useful
mircea_popescu: #somethinguseful
pete_dushenski: in other success, looks like there's increasing traction for the theory that the terracotta warriors were directly inspired by the greeks and may have even been overseen by greek sculptors, predating marco polo by a millennia in terms of contact between east and west.
mircea_popescu: i thought teh anabasis was the first foray.
pete_dushenski: asciilifeform: while useful conversations happen in channel, i have little doubt that shiva would be more productive if he weren't reading and reposting yarvin, bbc, el reg, or whatever 'sekoority' bloggers. it's really not hard for anyone to imagine.
pete_dushenski: mircea_popescu: xenophon, rite. /me is actually working on this tome atm.
mircea_popescu: pete_dushenski tu quoque.
pete_dushenski: in degrees!
pete_dushenski wonders what planet he is living on where he is as useful to republic as alf
pete_dushenski: lol i have a badass life all things considered and need no cheering up, though i appreciate the thought. but i can be no more lenin nor laika than alf. i'm boyar, not barbarossa.
