spyked: asciilifeform, what do you think of minimal baremetal implementation of Lisp (RISC assembly only) on something like a MIPS core? I might be thinking this in too abstract terms, it's definitely not that easy. but I'm trying to find a middle way between working FPGA Lisp machine and Lisp on unix.
asciilifeform: spyked: i tried this, it's a dead end because papers over idiot hardware rather than replaces. and does not yield hardware sovereignty-- you are at the mercy of the chipmaker's continued making of 100% compatible cpu & peripherals

asciilifeform: it is not curable.
phf: i still stand by this point, but with a disclaimer. i think that one of the advantages early hackers had was that they were working from inside their systems. linus was dogfooding linux, symbolics were using every lisp machine at their disposal to build better lisp machines. i think there's inherent folly in planning a revolution from the comfort of our bourgeois machines :p
asciilifeform: phf: the notion is to build a box with sufficient ram, horse, capacity to drive xterm, so that you can sit down on it and edit the fpga config per se.

asciilifeform: cadr sucks because it was designed around off the shelf alu and misc glue of the time.
asciilifeform: the designers were crippled by the extreme transistorpoverty of the time.
asciilifeform: there's NO reason to emulate, e.g., amd am2900, for all time.
phf: sure, but chinual is extremely detailed and the ~architecture~ can be improved incrementaly. for example brad's cpu is, yes, implemented as an emulator for a discrete circuit. but at the same time it can be isolated from the bus, put into a determenistic harness, and rewritten from the cpu spec in chinual.

asciilifeform: iirc jurov has a working node in europe somewhere

hanbot: yeah, ty. i wonder if it wouldn't be wise to update that list monthly as part of reporting etc.
asciilifeform: and BingoBoingo possibly also
asciilifeform: hanbot: imho that'd be spiffy
asciilifeform: iirc mircea_popescu has at least 1 public node
asciilifeform: and possibly somebody else also ( shinohai ? )
asciilifeform: i don't much like the phrase 'trusted nodes', when you connect to trb node, you get plaintext tcp, and 0 guarantees re who or what you're actually talking to.

asciilifeform: ( several cases documented in the logs, by mircea_popescu and others )
asciilifeform: all of the pattern 'have you seen this tx?' 'no...' 'but i sent it to your node and got an ack'

asciilifeform: !~later tell ben_vulpes was it you who had a trb patch abolishing the idiotic truncation of block and tx hashes in debug.log ? where did it go ?
ben_vulpes: asciilifeform: 'tis sitting in my workdir, did not imagine it to be useful to others
ben_vulpes: or hm where did it go
BingoBoingo: <asciilifeform> and BingoBoingo possibly also << Yes, ip available to qualified inquirers
ben_vulpes: anyways, trivial 2-liner
ben_vulpes: if it were to be vpatched, it should abolish truncation everywhere in the codebase
ben_vulpes: i struggle to imagine the poverty of system that behavior was intended to be useful on
asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: iirc it's 15-20 lines ( all ~same snip tho, in each, of the truncation )
ben_vulpes: sounds right by my recollection
asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: if you find it, plox to repost
ben_vulpes: aye aye

mod6: <+hanbot> say, where's the current list of trb nodes? http://thebitcoin.foundation/trusted-nodes.html << accurate? << I do update it as people tell me.
mod6: To all who have nodes on this list: Please update ben_vulpes or myself if the IP or status changes of your node. Thank you.
pete_dushenski: hanbot: mine is fourth down on the 'trusted node' list
pete_dushenski: !~later tell mircea_popescu yo back! :D
jhvh1: pete_dushenski: The operation succeeded.
pete_dushenski: no one wants to dump bch / bcc eh ? weird. thought there'd be a line-up out the door. then again, maybe y'all already been there done that and my brokerage offer is late to the party ?

mod6: ah, werd
pete_dushenski: but i was as surprised as mike_c (to whom, wb btw!) that the bch --> btc market actually came through, at least for triple-digit btc sums. obv can't speak to mp-level six- or seven-digit sums.

pete_dushenski: sure seems like it!
pete_dushenski: ben_vulpes: a comment of mine on your latest blog post got scarfed, just a heads up in case you're not checking for pending comments regularly, or it got lost in spamola foldola.
pete_dushenski: in other nodes, my latest 0-fullheight trb sync experiment was completed in a hair under two weeks. nb i say!

mod6: pete_dushenski: hey, nice!
mike_c: hi pete!
mod6: maybe that's encouraging news for mike_c who just started his sync adventure
ben_vulpes: pete_dushenski: approved, ty
mike_c: I'm at 292908
pete_dushenski: though i'll be damned if i can gather why it is that -connect'ing to 2+ nodes jams up every few hours whereas just 1 node sync beautifully with no issues for days on end.
pete_dushenski: ben_vulpes: cheers mate
pete_dushenski: mod6: ya, it was ~half the time of the last 0-fullheight trb sync i tried maybe 18 months ago, but that was on hdd and this was on ssd :)
mike_c: asciilifeform: I got some goats in the mail today. ty.
mod6: pete_dushenski: yeah ssd helps
pete_dushenski: http://btcbase.org/log/2017-08-04#1693691 << re "car wheel drm" can't say i've ever lost one of the "special" nuts myself but they are indeed a thing and it's not overly surprising that the shops won't sell you new ones but if you just drop your car off there, flip them a $50 or whatever, i'm sure they can take care of it. or, y'know, just know a guy.
a111: Logged on 2017-08-04 03:21 ben_vulpes: pete_dushenski: might know more
pete_dushenski: mod6: hugely. i've now got a small stockpile of 'em seeing as asciilifeform is a few years ahead of the curve and is already reporting on their 2yrish lifespans. might as well have some on hand.

asciilifeform: ( put trimfs as daily cron job )
asciilifeform: http://btcbase.org/log/2017-08-22#1701650 << i cannot speak for other folx but possibly i'm not the only one who isn't eager to divulge all-his-btc-addrs ( much as we like pete_dushenski , picture, say , his iron were to be stolen, ect)

asciilifeform: dumping shitforkolade is in that sense a very private work, more than, say, proctology
mike_c: trimfs, will do. thanks
asciilifeform: alternatively can mount some fs ( e.g. ext4 ) with 'discard' flag, same thing
asciilifeform: ( but continuous, at slight write speed penalty )
asciilifeform: trimfs on other hand is a batch util, grinds disk to a halt for 10s or so
pete_dushenski: asciilifeform: what means 'his'-btc-addrs ?
asciilifeform: grrrrr fstrim
asciilifeform: not trimfs
asciilifeform: fstrim !
asciilifeform: pete_dushenski: consider what is involved in selling-all-your-forkolade
pete_dushenski: who said anything about all ?
asciilifeform: why the fuck would i want to keep any.
pete_dushenski: let's just start with some, neh ?
pete_dushenski: i dunno man, you're the one keeping is ~all~
asciilifeform: if i go through the bother of setting up the furnace, i'm certainly burning all.
pete_dushenski: as the kids these days say, you do you man, you do you.
asciilifeform: but i dun see how you could use someone else's help in this exercise, without disclosing your inner rectal seekritz.
pete_dushenski: no different than paying for fg 'discloses your inner rectal seekritz'
pete_dushenski: coins gotta come from somewhere, go somewhere else
asciilifeform: disclosing privs to empty addrs proves ownership to whoever finds them.
pete_dushenski quietly imagines that asciilifeform 's seekrit is that he's bigger holder than... mp!
pete_dushenski: but how would anyone but me know where the empty privkeys come from ? let's say i hand them off to another guy, who has no idea where they come from but via me, and then he sells on xchange, and then btc gets funneled back to you, what then ? when inquisitor comes (which he won't because he can't or he already would've) do all three of us own coins because we've each seen privkeys ?
asciilifeform: because somebody somewhere would totally do that
asciilifeform: pass privs to pig who passes to cow who passes to duck who.
asciilifeform: and inquisitors apparently have iq of a broken dish and always give up at first chance, also...
asciilifeform: also gotta say that the notion that pete_dushenski would subcontract out a job involving privkeys, is not very good advertisement for his service...
asciilifeform: imho this hypothetical exercise falls under the banner of Do. Not. Share. Privkeyz. With. Anyone. It. Never. Ends. Well.
asciilifeform: not with mother, father, brother, fucktoy, nobody.
asciilifeform: it's called 'priv' for a reason.
asciilifeform: sharing privkeys, for any reason at all, is quite like sharing syringe needles
asciilifeform: but with the added feature that it sets up a permanent wormhole between the sharers -- he gets hiv 20yrs later? now you do too.
asciilifeform: putting your cock in the mains socket, is both wiser , more +ev, more pleasant, and less of a screaming abuse of the equipment and of the entire discipline that produced it, than sharing private keys.
asciilifeform: even to 'empty' addr ( would you share an 'old' pgp key?! )
asciilifeform: http://btcbase.org/log/2017-08-22#1701681 << before i fughet -- i will also point out, all else being equal , a ssd that is larger relative to the size of the blockchain -- will die more slowly ( trim MUST work for this to hold )

asciilifeform: more ssdblocks total -> fewer writes per block per hour -> slower death
asciilifeform: this being said, even respectably thick (500+ GB) ssd will burn out long before it fills.
asciilifeform: it may prove more economical to run spinning disks with slice raid, vs ssd.
asciilifeform: though to date i've found the cost, to be similar.
asciilifeform: and ssd is considerably more pleasant to have around in close quarters, and doesn't lead you to dive into machine cellar to swap dying drives bimonthly
asciilifeform: ssd also more , obviously, compact, and lower current. e.g. zoolag is approx the size of my fist. and runs from a wall wart.
asciilifeform: outperforms dulap, which eats half a kw or so .
BingoBoingo: <asciilifeform> dumping shitforkolade is in that sense a very private work, more than, say, proctology << AHA, balance of bleeding!
pete_dushenski: asciilifeform: "another guy" can be read as no more than bch walletolade manufacturer. glhf auditing the code of the extant heaps required to sweep privkeys and send bch to xchange.
asciilifeform: pete_dushenski: as i understand it's a couplea line patch to trb
asciilifeform: ( 2mb and whatevers )
asciilifeform: to sit down on the phorq
asciilifeform: but ftr asciilifeform has not, personally, yet tried this.
asciilifeform: i ain't putting privkeys ( even 'old' ones ) in a networkedclosedturd . for same reasons as i will not be sending them to whoever.
BingoBoingo: So, Trump gave an Afghanistan speech where he promised to not talk about Afghanistan specifics. Also We are not nation-building again, we are killing terrorists
BingoBoingo: <asciilifeform> to sit down on the phorq << And once sat down on phork there is problem of who to talk to among the AWS sybils.
