Mocky: This much is obvious to anyone who has worked with code and has half a brain. The lack of this is a good way to spot those with less than half a brain.
a111: Logged on 2018-06-21 15:33 asciilifeform: Mocky: to function as a troo vtronicist, gotta grasp the concept, described by e.g. dijkstra, that a line of code you have written is not an asset, but an expense. (specifically, an expense against the time budget of other thinking people, who must read and grasp what you have written. )
Mocky: I've never had an any involvement with foss project, haven't seen this dynamic. but I don't doubt it.
a111: Logged on 2018-06-21 18:26 mircea_popescu: Mocky it's not much, superficially, but it has a lot of downstream. because this is the ~fundamental~ rot of "foss" : that impotent dweebs latch on to it not because of the lofty theoretical goals, but strictly because of the very direct if unspoken power equation, "if i be friends with these guys then girls will be forced ot insert my penis in their vagina by themselves".

asciilifeform: KimuSan^: you may have been misinformed, nobody here is particularly enthusiastic about anonymity
asciilifeform: if anything, quite the opposite
KimuSan^: Then came across a great article on looper-os and decided to see if there were more interesting stuff in here.

KimuSan^: Well you can find me on many sites and all fully public., and the trails from there.

asciilifeform: KimuSan^: after which you can perhaps try to explain, why did you park your privkey with nsa-operated honeypot
KimuSan^: I place A privkey there.
asciilifeform: KimuSan^: and why would you do this, or encourage 'privacy'/'anonymity' aficionados to do it ?
KimuSan^: Interestingly I have yet to find proof of you NSA honeypot claim, but I hope to find that in your log as it seems like you have such Proof.
asciilifeform: KimuSan^: lol! bear trap that asks you to share privkey with 3rd party, is not proofy enuff?
KimuSan^: Actually my privkey is in my hardware key on my body. What I have I keybase is what I need in order to communicate with others. I see keybase as a good gateway drug to actually get people to start encrypting and signing coo. S
KimuSan^: .. Comms
asciilifeform: why would you host even pubkey on keybase.
asciilifeform: gateway drug to idiocy.
diana_coman: KimuSan^, why do you think that those biting such "gateway drug" (let alone needing that much baiting and so on) *should* "start encrypting" or have anything to do with signing anything?
asciilifeform: diana_coman: normally it takes longer, but asciilifeform's dosimeter already maxed out. this one's all yours.
asciilifeform: 'looper-os' for fuckxssake.
diana_coman: asciilifeform, ahahah, loopety loop
KimuSan^: Well don't know about you, but I prefer my communication to be private if needed. Telling that to my old father is close to impossible. Getting him on keybase actually thaught him a lot about why and how. These days we encrypt all communication - even if it is just via a key he uploaded to keybase.
KimuSan^: asciilifeform: why wouldn't I. I have my pub key in many places.
asciilifeform: KimuSan^: how , precisely , does keybase differ from the key escrow db clinton tried to make mandatory ?
diana_coman: KimuSan^, you are effectively saying "I want my father to get X but he can't or won't so I feed him something that *looks* like X and that's great because reasons"
diana_coman: and at any rate you haven't actually answered the question: why ?
KimuSan^: diana_coman: it's called baby steps.
KimuSan^: Why what?
diana_coman: KimuSan^, mno, it's called many things and none of them any good
diana_coman: why should they start encrypting if they don't understand much about it
KimuSan^: Because we are getting to a point ve
KimuSan^: Where it will be needed
KimuSan^: Well have to run off now. I can try to explain more at a later point if you let me.
diana_coman: baby steps is when baby tries to walk for real - with all the bumps and crying that happens; it's not when baby "walks" by having parent holding it in the air and moving its legs as if it was walking, all the time saying for good measure "you are walking baby, yeee"
asciilifeform: lol 'baby steps' where keybase dossiers the plaintexts

mircea_popescu: !Qcalc 0.00420032+ 0.00021850+6.65784110
lobbesbot: mircea_popescu: 6.66225992
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes odds are you're either not setting the fee correctly, or else the inputs are so numerous it won't send with the fee you set.
ben_vulpes: "paytxfee" : 0.00021850,
ben_vulpes: and afaik only spending a single output
mircea_popescu: roughly speaking, fee in satoshi / 4 / (count of inputs + count of outputs ) should come over w/e value 100 or w/e it is.
ben_vulpes: next thing i'm going to try is manually walk the spend-to-self down by 100 satoshis until this trb shits a tx out and then look at what it produces
ben_vulpes: mircea_popescu: 3467 is the value i get with that algo
mircea_popescu: is this trb ?
ben_vulpes: this is trb
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes current fees per byte are more in the 50k satoshi range you're aware. it kinda jumped,
ben_vulpes: i wasn't aware that it was 50ksat/byte, no, but nevertheless trb shouldn't even be aware of that. orthogonal issue, isn't it?
mircea_popescu: that algo's per kb not per byte.
mircea_popescu: aaanyway, it's orthogonal, yes.
mod6: trb should just shit out a tx
mircea_popescu: mod6 unless he set up a minimum fee somewhere, though i don't recall how exactly that all works.
mod6: whether it gets picked up quickly or not, depends on the fee.
ben_vulpes: suggests cutoff around ~50 sat/byte, but still, orthogonal
mod6: are you trying to empty the wallet and are somehow off by a few satoshi?
mircea_popescu: if you try to send it with a lower fee than the level you set it to use it'll throw an error ; the rule for trb is to throw useless incomprehensible if not outright misguiding errors.
ben_vulpes: mod6: see that's why i asked for a spot check on the maths
mircea_popescu: anyway, it's either a) dust inputs you don't know about or b) min fee config conflict.
ben_vulpes: pretty confident that there's no dust at play, so i'll look for this min fee config

ben_vulpes: mircea_popescu: correct as always
asciilifeform: in other lulz, << yet another faux phuctor
mircea_popescu: there you go.
asciilifeform: 'Mozilla Security Team'
mircea_popescu: im not curling some pdf, fuck 'em, let them learn how to use the web if they want to spread their drivel.
ben_vulpes: mircea_popescu: the bit i have yet to unravel is why it thinks there's change to generate
mircea_popescu: it just defaults to thinking that, because satoshi.
asciilifeform: << the txt crapola, for entomologists strictly
asciilifeform: ( spoiler : same snoar as all other pseudophuctors, no actual keyz posted )
ben_vulpes: << next to look at
BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> meanwhile in "i have nfi how this game is played", << Maybe massive trade to kill the queens in the G column
mircea_popescu: yeah, or maybe the aliens.
mircea_popescu: or you know,
mircea_popescu: swamp girl did it.
BingoBoingo: That is a distinct possibilitit
BingoBoingo: In other news the venezolana is back to Venezuala for 3.5 weeks starting tomorrow to take care of her now late father's affairs
BingoBoingo: Looking like I might end up trying Cervantes sooner
mircea_popescu: o noes.
BingoBoingo: Or Portugues
mircea_popescu: and in other oldies,
ben_vulpes: i'm out of time on this particular trbism, bbl
BingoBoingo: With the apartment key scheduled to monday and the friend girl gone, this could be a very stressful period of time for the Peruana
ben_vulpes: how's that?
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: the 2nd key ( ) stood. i therefore suspect that i did not make any mistake in conversion.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: it remains to be determined exactly how to go about signing with a key that doesn't have a mult inv. i suspect that in this puzzler also lies the answer to how the infamous 'mirrored' mods were fired in the field.
asciilifeform: ( and whether this actually requires finding ~all~ of the prime factors , or not )
mircea_popescu: as an obvious possibly : there's some error that creates a functional inverse out of an unrelated numbar.
asciilifeform: aha
mircea_popescu: this would then equally afflict phuctored and unphuctored key
mircea_popescu: "hey guys, did you know your key has mathematically unsound but computably useful pseudoinverse ?"
asciilifeform: it'd afflict 'soup instead of primes' keys as a class
mircea_popescu: conceivably, all keys.
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes cuz he plans of fucking her in all holes at once 24/7.
mircea_popescu: he's got tentaclepeni.
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo btw, did you have the common decency of introducing them ?
BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> BingoBoingo btw, did you have the common decency of introducing them ? << Was scheduled for next week
mircea_popescu: maybe she ran away then!
BingoBoingo: The venezolana has a special friend she ran away to Uruguay with. She lives with the friend's family and the two girls share a bed.
mircea_popescu: that sounds sweet.
BingoBoingo: And the Peruana absolutely adores me and does bed and bathroom well, but... she can be very boring
BingoBoingo: From what I understand the Venezolana's special friend is staying here for the duration.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: in other twists, not only is neither key in the cr50 fw image i have, but the verification routine does not correspond to the 'open' sores.
asciilifeform: ( mega-surprise )
BingoBoingo: Blog the details. It's friday night. Two and a half days to SEO it
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: details will take a while to pry out.
BingoBoingo: This feeds, what is commonly called a series. Sometimes they go exciting places... Sometimes they don't
BingoBoingo has doubts the venezolana is running away for keeps, because she keeps asking how alf is doing
asciilifeform: lolwaat
BingoBoingo: Girl thinks alf is a cool dood and does interestin work
mod6: :]
BingoBoingo: brb
mod6: k
mircea_popescu: haha. they all think this before they meet him :D
asciilifeform: so, meanwhile : finds : key id's seen in , lead to pay dirt,
asciilifeform: 1) the pubs thrown earlier in phuctor ( seen in e.g. ) dun appear anywhere in fw 3.4
asciilifeform: 2) the RW key, corresponding to 'RW keyid: 0xde88588d(prod)' , appears , and is identical to what lives in
asciilifeform: << dump of RW key
asciilifeform: this in turn , is found in 4 places in the rom , ( labels mine , offsets preserved )
asciilifeform: ( there's a rw and ro piece in each of the 2 redundant sections of the rom , and each contains a copy of rw key -- why? ask'em, not me )
asciilifeform: however, after this, gets moar interesting:
asciilifeform: << the RO pubkey. (labels mine, offsets original). does not appear to be posted publicly anywhere.
asciilifeform: stored in presumably same bass-ackwards form as the RW.
asciilifeform: the last bit of wtf, is that there dun appear to be anyffing corresponding to the published loader
asciilifeform: in particular, the '0xcafebabe' magicturd in , dun appear at all in the bin
asciilifeform: it remains possible that the loader crapola lives in some part of the rom that doesn't get updated and thereby not part of my bin image.
asciilifeform: in other lulz, >>
asciilifeform: 'Note: early versions of the SoC would let us build and manually sign our own bootloaders, and the RW images could be self-signed. Production SoCs require officially-signed binary blobs to use for the RO bootloader(s), and the RW images that we build must be manually signed. So even though we generate RO firmware images, they may not be useful.'
asciilifeform: for today this'll be all.
asciilifeform: oh , for compleeetness, << the 0.3.4 cr50 fw currently installed in my box. ( the offsets above, are valid for it)
phf: the later is a guess though right, that it's currently installed?
asciilifeform: phf: nein, i flashed it in earlier, recall
asciilifeform: overwrote factory 0.3.3
phf: oh oh of course, you can still flash official ones in
asciilifeform: so as to get a known turd
phf slow
asciilifeform: << moar re the layout of the fw. apologies for l0gz clutter.
phf: what's the executable substrate? i mean it's an fpga carrying its own architecture, what's it compiled with?
asciilifeform: phf: << see
asciilifeform: ( spoiler : CFLAGS_CPU+=-march=armv7-m -mcpu=cortex-m3 )
asciilifeform: it's an arm7 m3 with a few custom i/o regs and some iron for crypto accel ( strictly hashing & symmetric , all else in soft )
asciilifeform bbl
phf: ty
