lobbes: Top three things I need to do next: 1) set up automated updating of the reporting database the thing sits on (currently 'stale' data). 2) set up lobbesbot to similarly search via IRC commands 3) Zip distribution system!
lobbes: further out on list: 4) allow bulk submission of links via link to a plaintext list 5) ability to search the -content- of the zips for a phrase (thanks to mats for the suggestion)

phf: sekoore keyboard design!! leaks so much data it catches its own transmission
asciilifeform: phf: ftr i think the 'matrix' design is ridiculous. esp in a device that cost what a harley cost at the time.
asciilifeform: really oughta have been '1 key, 1 wire, 1 chip pin'

phf: heh "1992 vintage italian shoe. the sole i head to replace out of hand carved wood, but leather is literally like nothing you can get anymore!!1"
asciilifeform: aaha exactly
shinohai: Oh good morning mod6 .... gonna try the changes out later this afternoon, will report back
mod6: shinohai: ah, alright, i'll probably have a full patch for people to look at here later today.
mod6: experimental, ofc.
shinohai: I don't expect drastically different results than from first pass, but never hurts to poke these things with a stick some.
BingoBoingo: <phf> heh "1992 vintage italian shoe. the sole i head to replace out of hand carved wood, but leather is literally like nothing you can get anymore!!1" << Old leather always is something you can't get off the shelf
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: i suspect that decent shoes are somehow illegal in usa. they are ~entirely unavailable in any shop i've ever walked into there.
asciilifeform: prolly banned, like decent milk ( see 'uht' thread )
BingoBoingo: Closest thing I could find before leaving were workboots
asciilifeform: in timisoara, 'boot valhalla', walk into ~any shop and for 1.5x of what 1 pair of typical chinese liquishit costs in shitland, you get italian boots , with actual leather, insulation , proper sole, etc
asciilifeform: for coupla hundy you could prolly get a tailored set . ( asciilifeform did not stay longenuff to investigate )
BingoBoingo: simply went to Rural King, got pair of Redwings off the shelf. Traded ~$200 and began ritual break in process
BingoBoingo: Here the trend seems to be Nike plastic de China for the youth and imitation real shoes for the adults, with substantial amounts of flip flops mixed in
asciilifeform: sounds like usa
BingoBoingo: Well, the adult shoes contain leather
BingoBoingo: Likely Industria Argentina sorta deal
asciilifeform: sometimes sees photos of africans, straw ebola huts in background, wearing 'nike', tshirts, etc. and wonders if typical ameritard viewer sees 'ooh hey they get Real Clothing, Like Us' rather than 'hmm why am i dressed like ebola african'
phf: actually texans make those cowboy boots, i've been gifted two pairs at different times, and they are incredibly comfortable. but of course they are not ideal on pavement, and it's also stylistically a bold move on the east coast
BingoBoingo: AHA
asciilifeform: these would've been ideal for the 100km of bucharest walk
asciilifeform: they dunbelieve in sidewalks there ( repurposed as orcish parkinglot , as in many post-su lands ) and after coupla days of walking on rubble in 'civilized' shoes , feet resemble chinese bamboo punishment victim's
BingoBoingo: Ah, the uruguayan sidewalks are intentionally textured like rubble!
asciilifeform: for massage, lel
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: boots that can take ~removable~ (check into baggage when going by airplane) iron plates would be spiffy imho

apeloyee: and you think internals of 'ice' won't be switched?
asciilifeform: apeloyee: re 'nonhomogeneous' , see e.g. http://btcbase.org/log/2017-09-02#1710128 , http://btcbase.org/log/2017-09-02#1710139
a111: Logged on 2017-09-02 19:58 asciilifeform: large xilinx chips also have 'hard' periphs inside, e.g. multers, adders, shifters, various
a111: Logged on 2017-09-02 20:02 asciilifeform: re the archs -- lattice ice is analogous to children's toy 'lego' where you get 9,000 identical bricks; xilinx ( and altera, and the 'adult' lattice fpga on fancy dev boards ) are analogous to... i guess the 'erector' toy, where there are a certain number of fungible pieces, but also ~a~ motor, ~a~ heavy iron base, a quantity of gears, etc.
asciilifeform: apeloyee: the larger chips by lattice co are already xilinx-like
asciilifeform: the smaller ones are 'sea of gates' as they are intended to be used for glue logic, and emphasize predictable path timing ( the analogous xilinx series is the 95xx , as used in FUCKGOATS )
apeloyee: i'm speaking of reversed ones only
asciilifeform: so yes, the only reason why anybody sells ice and 95xx -like 'sea of gates' at all, is that for 'glue' (simple boolean functions of signals, for e.g. bus decoding, addressing, simple i/o multiplexing) is that you can't actually do it reliably with the non-seaofgates devices
asciilifeform: they would have long ago phased out the sane (sea of gates) devices , otherwise.
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: Well acordding to Uruguay it's a business. How long until there's a bank account is a mystery. Moving discussions ahead with the datacenter with the understanding that if a local bank account isn ready in time, there will be some way to pay them.
apeloyee: what's to stop Lattice from yanking the reversed ice and introducing similar-but-incompatible per the playbook?
asciilifeform: it is sorta how like american hardware store would love to sell plastic pipe wrenches. but you can't actually work with those, so they don't.
mircea_popescu: they sell plastic guns...
asciilifeform: apeloyee: nothing per se. but the 'fiddled' chip is likely to be reversable with same methods, on account of being homogeneous
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo so what's the plan here, drop upon the dc with brown paper bag fulla cash ?
asciilifeform: apeloyee: they could in principle try intel-style fascism with built-in rsa sig verifier or the like. but afaik the only vendor to date to attempt any such thing, was xilinx, and it wasn't even in earnest
phf: aaye, boss wantsa one of them servers, brought you eggheads some mulah
asciilifeform: apeloyee: the most immediate risk is that 'ice' series simply goes out of print. like anything else.
apeloyee: that's what I spoke about
asciilifeform: the only cure for this is to fab own fpga.
apeloyee: but you say everybody needs something ice-like?
asciilifeform: it's the 1 product currently sold, that's worth buying.
asciilifeform: even if you need three dozen of'em to fit , e.g., vga controller.
asciilifeform: and it's the 1 fpga currently sold that's worth copying ( scaled-up, naturally )
apeloyee: it's the 1 product currently sold, that's worth buying. << and the xilinx item in 'fuckgoats'?
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: That or "Hey pete, wanna send a wire for some BTC"
mircea_popescu: whole point is to have your own stream.
asciilifeform: apeloyee: fg is a very unusual device, in that you can actually put, e.g., terabyte of known input into it, and only you know what the half-GB that ought to come out, is, there is not physically room inside for a secret crib sheet of that size
mircea_popescu: "registered company, no bank accounts" ~= "rented house, no running water"
asciilifeform: there are not many items, even conceptually, that can be audited this way
shinohai: !~ticker --market all
asciilifeform: it is also unusual in that it accepts no input from the computer
jhvh1: shinohai: Bitstamp BTCUSD last: 13730.52, vol: 18642.79134567 | Bitfinex BTCUSD last: 13822.0, vol: 65812.8828485 | Volume-weighted last average: 13801.8066552
asciilifeform: and thereby has no attack surface in the traditional sense
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: And thus my increasing annoyance with the locals. They aren't ustards, but their slow speed to anything is grating.
asciilifeform: i still dislike having to use toolchain from hitler to compile the bitstream. and thereby the current fg is the last time i use a xilinx in a product.
mircea_popescu: so far sounds a lot like classical scam, "sure, can do 90% of useful item BUT NO MORE in steady 10% increments you can pay for".
mircea_popescu: wtf did that accountant or w/e do, "oh, i can find you a house mr bb, it just won't have any walls..." ?
mircea_popescu: shoulda said so from day 1.
apeloyee: but strictly speaking, if you just want mod-exp you don't need "an adder". you need operations "add X", doble and "subtract modulus"
mircea_popescu: "yes i can FIFTYQUOTESregistger a corpFIFTYQUOTES but it will not be a corp and hello"
apeloyee: *double the result"
asciilifeform: apeloyee: 'add X' needs an adder.
asciilifeform: as does 'sub X'
BingoBoingo: Apparently they waited until after the business registration went through Friday to apply for bank accounts.
mircea_popescu: but today is thurs!
apeloyee: it has adder. problem is storage, no?
BingoBoingo: si
mircea_popescu: what happened to "but i must warn you mr bb, "applying for bank accounts:" is a thing, bank doesn't open acct ON THE SPOT, takes 8 years"
mircea_popescu: fucking soviets.
apeloyee: can you use one 'ice' to generate a bitstream for another one?
asciilifeform: apeloyee: adder is just a series of xor's. but yes you need shift registers to hold the operands, and one to hold the result ( which then can be shifted )
asciilifeform: apeloyee: they have very slow-writing storage for the bitstream (nand flash, with ~10k cycle endurance) so definitely not practical
BingoBoingo: Apparently takes weeks. Anecdote from datacenter folk suggests 2-3 months of bandaids not uncommon.
mircea_popescu: why wasn't this in there dec 15th ? pshaw.
asciilifeform: apeloyee: afaik nobody ever sold a 'sea of gates' fpga/cpld with sram bitstream storage.
asciilifeform: ( if it existed -- yes, you could 'page it in' )
apeloyee: the 'ice' is one such
asciilifeform: nope, nandflash
asciilifeform: unless there's a seekrit catalogue i dun have
asciilifeform: or hm not so
asciilifeform: the 8k takes external spi config
asciilifeform: it does take nearly whole second tho, to load
apeloyee: ugh
asciilifeform: but in principle apeloyee is right, one could make a 'page swapped' tile of 'ice's.
asciilifeform: possibly even use it perversely to perform certain computations quickly.
asciilifeform: (i.e. you don't need a universal shift register, can make 'constant' value using a just-in-time-cooked bitstream loaded in for that particular occasion)

mircea_popescu: 's money is on "packeted format!!!!" as solution to this lel
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i designed once ( but never built ) a kbd where each key sits on a 2wire bus, and has time slot
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo well so what do we do ? because so far this is starting to look like complete writeoff.
apeloyee: egyptian mul doesn't need a barrel shifter
asciilifeform: it'd work. and would also let you rearrange the keys
asciilifeform: apeloyee: indeed it doesn't
asciilifeform: apeloyee: karatsubaization doesn't need one either
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo eg, have you "applied" to every single bank in town, making it plain to them that UNLESS they get it done by next week they will probably lose out on the business AND that it is to your superior white man eye inconceivable as well as a shocking break from human community that they take so very long,. and shoulds really be very ashamed of self, much like waiter who takes a piss in your wine ?
asciilifeform: apeloyee: i've thought about 'what is minimal circuit for rsa'. i.e. ideally would eat x,y,m , of b bitness, and shit forth x^y mod m after ~b^3 clock cycles.
asciilifeform: apeloyee: could potentially build out of discretes.
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: I'll press the accountant on the bank applying strategy, and approach banks on my own until the list is exhausted.
mircea_popescu: good.
apeloyee: karatsuba's saves area only, not time
asciilifeform: apeloyee: eh what
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo whole idea is you reg your co with whatever inept fiatola site (bitstamp, whatever) and move into cash that way.
asciilifeform: apeloyee: saves time. i.e. isn't o(n^3), elementarily
apeloyee: not if you have a 4096b hw multer
apeloyee: and no point in designing a hw multer implementing karastuba, unless saving on Si area
asciilifeform: this is an open q
apeloyee: hm yes, for really large multers it might be
apeloyee: when wire delay is comparable to component delay
apeloyee: 'what is minimal circuit for rsa' << probably ripple-carry adder + a few registers

asciilifeform: and incidentally, all you want for padding is a n-bit-to-n-bit hash; and if rsa itself is strong, than simple modexp ( or , if you like, two, 1 the normal way, and then 1 of the output bits, reversed ) is a satisfactory hash for paddings.
asciilifeform: ( in fact, if we had a decent prime-constructor, 'cut it in half and multiply the 2 large primes you get , 1 from each half' would be a decent hash for such use )
mircea_popescu: http://btcbase.org/log-search?q=oaep !
mircea_popescu: padding is the ~one item where we actually don't need a fix.
asciilifeform: i dunlikeit
asciilifeform: it's hashtronic
asciilifeform: hashes -- suck.
mircea_popescu: it's the one item proved to be strong.
asciilifeform: nope.
asciilifeform: as strong ~as the hash~
asciilifeform: and no stronger.
mircea_popescu: yes. the one item proved to be strong.
asciilifeform: nope. no hash has ever been proven to be anything whatsoever.
asciilifeform: they are exactly same item as symmciphers.
mircea_popescu: "this compuer is proven correct" "only as correct as the inputs" "stfu"
asciilifeform: an oaep (or similar scheme) ciphertron rests on 2 elephants : strength of rsa, and strength of the (voodoo) hash.
asciilifeform: theoretically could make one that only stands on 1, rsa.
mircea_popescu: the scheme ~itself~ is ~proven~ to be strong. which is way the fuck more than can be said of the "decent" or "satisfactory" in above.
asciilifeform: nope. again, as strong as the hash. hash falls -- it falls.
mircea_popescu: this is misery.
mircea_popescu: !!key Covale`
deedbot: Not registered.
asciilifeform: whereas one ~could~ build one where rsa per se must fall, for it to fall.

mircea_popescu: dja understand the difference between "proven strong" and "decent" "satisfactory" etc other offthecuffness ?
asciilifeform: aha, and very well
mircea_popescu: ok then.
asciilifeform: they proof postulates the strength of the hash.
asciilifeform: *the
mircea_popescu: every proof will postulate something ; this is not a cogent objection.
mircea_popescu: unless you have proof that no such thing as a hash can be made, it's more useful than "this seems obfuscaxy to me!"
asciilifeform: it is if i can remove one of the unfounded postulates and still have working item.
mircea_popescu: by all means.
asciilifeform: that was all, re subj.
asciilifeform: ( and it's an open q. )
mircea_popescu: entirely true that if one builds a hash which can be provenly as strong as rsa, then thathash powered oaep would be the natural padding for rsa
asciilifeform: aha!
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu gets it.
mircea_popescu: and for the record : prime generation (as in trpng) is not THAT expensive these days.
asciilifeform: and, will point out, is built into (adult) 'p'.
asciilifeform: as a primitive.
asciilifeform: so naturally invites the q of 'why not a trapdoor based on multiplication of primes'.
asciilifeform: for what do we need the heathentronic liquishit-mix trapdoor algos.
mircea_popescu: now this much is quote cogent.
asciilifeform: and more , even :
asciilifeform: the objection last time we had this thread ( iirc by mircea_popescu ) was the pain of doing this with large inputs
asciilifeform: but you can in fact merkleize'em, and get 'sponge' construction
mircea_popescu: word
asciilifeform: while still using makeprime(bits(0..n/2))*makeprime(bits(n/2+1..n)) as 'hasher'.
asciilifeform: aha.
mircea_popescu: merlke sponge large prime hash would be interesting
asciilifeform: and , beauty is, can be scaled up to fit cpu budget
asciilifeform: ( larger primes, if more cycles available in particular application; smaller, with moar merkelization, if fewer )
asciilifeform: so thereby you nao have the sponge.

asciilifeform: sometimes i wonder if mircea_popescu ever actually read the instruction.
asciilifeform: ( and with rum, or without )
asciilifeform: ( folx who ~did~ read it , know that it is possible to determine that a particular fg evaluates the same function on the input, for a particular string pair S1, S2 of bits, fed simultaneously into I1a, I2a, I1b, I2b, of FG a and b respectively; by syncing the oscillators , by connecting the 4th pins of a and b together.
asciilifeform: but if you to compute the particular output expected for S1, S2 in advance, you gotta specify the clock freq, and run fg.v in e.g. 'verilator' . and it takes a while. )
asciilifeform: *want to
asciilifeform: *particular pair of fg evaluates...
mircea_popescu: let's just say that this "need at least 1 bit of blackbox per tb of arbitrary input" view is, sadly, not how it works.

asciilifeform: but at this point almost certainly repeating ancient thread.
asciilifeform: ( exercise for advanced reader : write a substitute evil_fg.v that fools a user who limits himself to the above test. )
asciilifeform: and hah, i think i finally see what mircea_popescu's objection was. no, thing dun have to physically store every byte of 'evil' output. elementarily a sabotaged fg will behave as prng.

asciilifeform: puts on conveyor.
mod6: thanks, let me know if questions/comments/etc.
mod6: oh, I should maybe also say, one thing that was added as more of a debugging feature was the 'press-path' or 'pp' command. Which will dump out the exact press path to be used from a given head.
asciilifeform: bbl
mod6: This may be removed before release. Flow still works as it previously did, just is no longer used in press.
mircea_popescu: like a debugging feature basically.
mod6: yah.
mod6: correction: flow is not used to ~feed~ press operation. still used to ensure that the HEAD is within the flow set.
mod6: this one line
mod6: death("HEAD: $press[1] not found in flow\n") if !grep /^$press[1]$/, @flow;
mod6: Going back to the issue exposed by the eucrypt mpi_fix_copy_incr vpatch, you can see now that the press path is calculated by including all of the given HEAD's antecedents recursively.
