trinque: thought it was the latter
asciilifeform: trinque: the latter

asciilifeform: though it does clutter the debug log with barfola if the partner is dead

asciilifeform: not sure how that goes directly with trb
trinque: an external adatronic otpulator makes dealing with transactional items diddled by the web safer, as I see it
asciilifeform: this yea

asciilifeform: i somehow missed.
trinque: I'm going to do a writeup when released, still putting it together.
trinque: the otp part discussed here stands alone, though. a rather dumb piece of software can keep track of encrypted OTPs it dispatched, the corresponding command (which sits in the encrypted item), and when it got the OTP back.
trinque: works for an accounting db, wot, w/e
trinque: otp box can be msdos over serial port, input parsing is trivial (key parameters, hash of command; so all numeric - none causing branching)
trinque: ah probably string of command, since folks need to see what it is they've gotten an OTP for. at any rate, still not branch-causing.
trinque: if there were a hardware-only way of logging what traveled over that serial port, even better. that'd be the audit trail instead of the OTP box's disk.

mircea_popescu: no idea.
mircea_popescu: but the engineering label seems to be falling off./
trinque: ah now I recall what might reduce the print audit's usefulness. it means visual inspection of the encrypted items, as well as OTPs. logger box has to first see the encrypted item, second, corresponding OTP, and then this log has to be verified by someone who can (elsewhere) crack open the encrypted ones and match up the OTPs.
asciilifeform: i have nfi what that fella smokes
mircea_popescu: trinque it's for your own later audit. hence the tee
trinque: tells me ordering of OTPs, but not whether one leaked out with wrong key, multiple keys, so on.
mircea_popescu: and speaking of baffling moongineering : why the fuck do they have SQUARE vent holes on places like us navy ships, where they can actually afford to design the cover rather than buy from walmart.
trinque: well, without transcribing or OCR'ing the log back in somewhere.
mircea_popescu: trinque can always hash any item that is long to check for conformity in audits.
asciilifeform: trinque: qr code
mircea_popescu: or maybe i'm not understanding the problem ?
asciilifeform: ( or even conventional bar )
trinque: in order for a log of OTPs to be meaningful, in that it asserts a particular person assented to an action at a given time, gotta know the OTP corresponds to the item sent to that person. the way I've been thinking about that is encrypting the OTP with two keys, one of which I hold; the other belonging to the outside party
mircea_popescu: could have just hashed it neh ?
trinque: and that at some point a log of the encrypted OTPs and their return (as seen over that serial cable by 3rd box) is moved somewhere, and the encrypted OTPs decrypted and matched up with OTPs received
mircea_popescu: if you have an irreversible hash function, it's better than encrypting.
mircea_popescu: (ie, doesn't need decryption, can simply compare)

mircea_popescu: the heatsink/fan assemblage is not heavy enough for the paste to not hold it. esp if upright.
phf: that's how the heatsink is attached to the surface, but i wasn't sure if it can handle the fan vibration
asciilifeform: epoxy will hold it and if you pull it with four hourses it'll be the pcb socket that comes off, not the hs

mircea_popescu: you saw that "tinmen" film btw ? re the early al siding industry ? that enchanted period in the 50s that even gave memes like "wtf are you, an al siding salesman ?"
asciilifeform: nope. but it is on the list
asciilifeform: iirc came up in an old trilema.
mircea_popescu: yeah, notbad film. anyway. al siding was always a scam, but that's not what i thought you meant by foil.
asciilifeform: ^ re 'arresthire' d00d
mircea_popescu: tbh i very much like the danielpbarron write-up style of "this is how to do x ; if you're lazy i'll do it for you costs this much".
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform so the idea is dood made/sold kronos w/e that was.
mircea_popescu: $3000 ie ~1btc worth of software.
mircea_popescu: this isn't evne grand theft is it.
asciilifeform: he isn't being accused of theft
asciilifeform: but of 'manufacture of hacking device' etc
mircea_popescu: so ? 2k worth of it
asciilifeform: that statute doesn't have damage quota
asciilifeform: or requires crown to show any at all
mircea_popescu: let me put it another way : if "the united states" is sorely hurt by a coupla grand wortha software, all those tomahawks'd better win some wars.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i care what usg thinks its laws are about as much as i think what fat girl thinks her reasons for eating are.
asciilifeform: they still have sore starfish from 'wannacry' using nsa's beloved 'unpatchable' hole, and pressure building for patch of same
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: if we're discussing zimbabwestan i am stuck describing its witchcraft statute.
mircea_popescu: i thought the guy fixed wannacry. did he make wannacry ?
asciilifeform: fixed in this case was 'took for self'
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform yes, but in our terms ; not in zimbabwestan terms. zimbabwestan may not have terms.
asciilifeform: 'Hutchins’ employer, cybersecurity firm Kryptos Logic, had been working closely with the US authorities to help them investigate the WannaCry malware. Hutchins handed over information on the kill switch to the FBI the day after he discovered it, and the chief executive of the firm, Salim Neino, testified in from of the US House of Representatives Committee on Science, Space & Technology the following month.' << golden idjits
asciilifeform: see also last para
asciilifeform: apparently d00d broke quickly in the cokemachine.
trinque: not that I've looked into wtf "bitcoin crash" transactions look like, distinct from trb transactions, but that'd perhaps explain it.
asciilifeform: trinque: i'd think their blocks would be rejected in the intake hopper, for being 2MB ?
asciilifeform: or not ?
trinque: thought shinohai or someone'd said they'd yet failed to mine a block larger than 1mb
shinohai: trinque: I did, twas first few hours after their "fork" ... afaik still no actual > 1 mb block mined.
shinohai: I'd be surprised if anyone does, considering diff retarget will take a few months to make it have 10 min blox
shinohai: Enjoy your starblox fuckers
mircea_popescu: trinque in principle it shouldn't have anything to do with your node, all that jazz.
mircea_popescu: anyway, as best i can see for the past coupla hours bcc hash is actually 0.
trinque: nah caught up meanwhile all that noise.
trinque: just found it amusing
shinohai: 99% of all reporting nodes seem to still be the Amazon sybils from before.
shinohai: (Until Roger/ViaBTC budget runs out I guess)
asciilifeform: in other noose, asciilifeform recently and for the THIRD time tried to get http://www.clifford.at/icestorm going . has the iron ready, etc. BUT the only prog utils are in a) python3 b ) haskell
asciilifeform: and the compiler requires clang

asciilifeform: to add insult to injury, even BROWSING shithub ( where all of the 'open' ice40 projects live ) no longer works on any of my graphical wwwtrons
asciilifeform: ( kept around specifically for such work ! )
asciilifeform: 'your browser is no longer supported', buttons do nothing, etc.
asciilifeform finally found 'iceprog', a c proggy, that r/w built turds to the chip. but so far is all.
asciilifeform: 'This syntax was added to bison on bison 2.6+ so either install later bison / just delete those lines locally' 'What @OrDavidi said. Those two statements only improve the quality of parser error messaged. You can safely remove them.'
mod6: <+asciilifeform> 'your browser is no longer supported', buttons do nothing, etc. << shit is evil.

asciilifeform: in other lulz, chorus of current and former microshit monkeys in #bolix defends winblows.

mod6: "it's not its fault it's retarded" line of thinking ?
shinohai: "From this date, you must hereby allow your webrowser of choice spew irrelevant ads and any other form of js eyesore that is dictated by the creators of this site."
mod6: perhaps just m$ disease has permeated the brain barrier huh
mod6: shinohai: indeed.
asciilifeform: mod6, shinohai , etc, rest of l1, if anybody gives a damn, http://wotpaste.cascadianhacker.com/pastes/eKmmX/?raw=true .

mod6: heh shinohai, straight outta dalnet
mod6: lol, good stuff (tm)
shinohai enjoys ascii art in moderation, when it is worthy to be attached to something
shinohai: I went in that chan and spammed tit art, befitting my station
mod6: ah, did they enjoy?
shinohai: I didn't get kb so I take it they at least tolerated.

mircea_popescu: https://news.bitcoin.com/despite-naysayers-the-bitcoin-cash-blockchain-chugs-forward/ << topish keks
mircea_popescu: meanwhile back on planet earth : the bitcoin crash difficulty implies a per-scamtoken cost of about 1/4 btc, and the price is about 1/10btc. the remainder comes straight out of the would-be miner's pocket. now tell me again all that jazz about how "miners decide" and whatnot bullshit idiots were spewing theoretically in theory.
mircea_popescu: in further lulz : the scamchain is ~300 blocks behind bitcoin. here's a summary : 478610 1 hour ago 443.02Kb ; 478609 1 hour ago 141.72Kb ; 478608 2 hours ago 291.50Kb ; 478607 2 hours ago 584.60Kb ; 478606 3 hours ago 174.71Kb ; 478605 554.37Kb ; 478604 3 hours ago 771.29Kb ; 478603 4 hours ago 355.16Kb ; 478602 4 hours ago 158.57Kb ; 478601 4 hours ago 424.27Kb
mircea_popescu: ~340 kb average (over 10 blocks). considering this 10 represents 1/5 or so of the bitcoin chain, so basically they're about 15 times LESS transaction intensive than bitcoin.
mircea_popescu: in other words, bitcoin cash is exactly equal to a proposition of reducing bitcoin blocks from 1mb to 60kb.
mircea_popescu: on the basis of "what the people need", as demonstrated by the people themselves, bitcoin blocks of 64kb would be perfectly sufficient./
asciilifeform: trinque: lol! let's also call obummer
asciilifeform: in other noose, asciilifeform built 'icestorm', 'arachne-pnr', with plain gcc 4.9 ( the only concession to idiocy on the test machine was python3 ) . and even MOST of 'yosys' ( the last step in the ice40 open sores fpga toolchain ) built. in fact, whole thing built, but linker barfs
asciilifeform: tcl , as i understand, caught the plague many years ago. this must be the 7th or 8th popular proggy that none of asciilifeform's boxes will build, purely on account of tcl rot.
asciilifeform: 'yosys' is that chain's verilog synth; the whole shebang is quite dead in the water without it.
asciilifeform: or perhaps not : could simply lay out the thing by hand...
asciilifeform: just fill. up. each. lut. by. hand...
asciilifeform: probably doomed to do this in the end regardless.
mircea_popescu: well, to quote that dood, "at least it's cheaper than at any point in history ; and faster than at any point of history"
mircea_popescu: amusingly, same could be said of faxed car.
mircea_popescu: "doesn't work, but cheap!"

asciilifeform: phun phakt, not long ago asciilifeform toured 'iraq embassy' ( there's an 'embassy expo' each yr in dc ). it was quite clear that the place isn't actually used in the daily sense

mircea_popescu: if they're not there, any historical trace of a ps -eo cmd,args | grep "mysql" (or the same command run on a similar system) will provide a -datadir= string.
mircea_popescu: common variations include /var/db/mysql, /usr/local/mysql/data and so on. just grepping your fs for say .MYI will likely yield, at that.
