phf: ^ reminds me of a 90s ru joke, a "new russian" (i.e. mobster) is showing off a piano in his giant mansion lobby. so the friend goes "you know how to play it?" "no, but i got some egghead stopping by tonight to show me how"
mircea_popescu: "Boston University's Charles River Campus is cancelling daytime and evening classes on Thursday, February 9, 2017 as of 6:00 AM. All academic and administrative activities (e.g. classes, seminars, student activities and meetings) that are scheduled to take place are cancelled." << global warming gave boston a winter storm the likes of which was rarely seen.
mircea_popescu: 20 inches of snow apparently.

thestringpuller: Why are OpenSSL types so ridiculous to work with? EC_KEY needs to plug into BIO which has to plug into TTY before you can even print the thing to stdout or a string.
thestringpuller: libsecp256k1 is even worse from what little glances of it
asciilifeform: in other olds,
asciilifeform: 'Another unsuccessful rocket torpedo inventor was Patrick Cunningham, an Irish immigrant who earned his living as a shoe maker and repairer in New Bedford, Massachusetts. Samples were tested for several years at NTS but the short range and wholly unpredictable trajectory destined this weapon for the scrap heap. However, in one last fling of exuberance, Cunningham fired his torpedo down the main street of his home town; it roared along
asciilifeform: her’s shop where it burned down the ice room.'

mircea_popescu: sounds very maga-ish
mircea_popescu: bweahahaha knights for socialism, bash the fash, leftist fight club ? epic.
asciilifeform: 'We found a few extended regex expressions in GNU libc that will crash or abort the execution of regcomp or regexec. For instance: \a?{1,32767} will immediately exhaust the stack calling calc_eclosure_iter in the compilation. A small variation of this regex is: \a?{0,32767} will consume a very large amount of memory: it seems to eat 16GB in less than a minute. It is also possible to exhaust the stack memory trying to parse...'
mircea_popescu: apparently "enclosure calculation" is a fundamental braindamage of ustards ?
asciilifeform: drepper is a 'ustard' ?
mircea_popescu: buncha fosstards "reviewed" thje code yes ?
asciilifeform: incidentally -- there is more to this crapolade than meets the naked eye. regexp is a fundamentally braindamaged concept -- not only in the way described by naggum (how do you infer false positives?) but also in the haskellian idiocy where 'reasonable' and 'thermonuclear self-annihilation' programs look nearly identical, and distinguishing them is np-hard
mircea_popescu: wut do ?
asciilifeform: the expulsion of 'In all likelihood, there was no change at all to the labor-intensiveness, but the labor was more "fun" for a certain class of people. Now, industrious retards can be a horrible thing. Over a number of years, close to a decade, Perl accreted bits and pieces from programming languages and became usable in lieu of a programming language by people who lacked the mental wherewithall to do programming. Tinkerers, repair
asciilifeform: ers, handymen, the auto mechanics of the IT industry, all flocked to Perl because they could tinker so well with it with no required knowledge or skills.' ( ) would go a long way.
asciilifeform: regex belongs in the tool chest next to 'duct tape'.
mircea_popescu: so you want no regexp ?
asciilifeform: certainly not as part of any permanent public structure.
asciilifeform: any moar than 'superglue'.
asciilifeform: it is properly a 'harem object'.
asciilifeform: rather like that tape that one uses to keep car muffler from falling down on the way to the welder's shop.
thestringpuller: duct tape is useful for actual ducting...
thestringpuller: ventilation et. al.
thestringpuller: danielpbarron: i love the way the comments work on your blog. brilliant!
deedbot: << Trilema - The Plumber Rampant
BingoBoingo: <thestringpuller> duct tape is useful for actual ducting... << NO!!! For that you need a Mastic Ducting tape!
BingoBoingo: Common "Duct tape" is too vulnerable to temperature fluctuations and decomposition to be useful on ducts
mircea_popescu: i thought mastic was for sniffing
BingoBoingo: mastic is an entire class of stuff
BingoBoingo: But yes, generally sniffable
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: just when you thought this can't get any lulzier: '...resource exhaustion issues which can be triggered only with crafted patterns (either during compilation or execution) are not treated as security bugs.' ( )
mircea_popescu: fucking epic. so - putin asks trump about extending the START, trump says it's a bullshit deal.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform nice heh.
mircea_popescu: teh lady doth protest, but she looks unconvinced.
