a111: Logged on 2016-03-04 13:39 davout: I started looking into how bitmex's engine actually works, and god, it's an abomination
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: afaik all public 'exchanges' are tentacles of the beast, at this point, to ~exactly equal extent, and for the obv reason
asciilifeform: and for yrs nao
BingoBoingo: Well, pointing out the STRML dude from BitMex was here, can not claim ignorance
asciilifeform: that ~anybody~ at this point 'can claim ignorance' is imho a laugh
BingoBoingo: Well, there's the NPC thing
asciilifeform: in not wholly-unrelated lulz, the # of prb 'nodes' that break the protocol in all kinds of ways, is astonishing even to asciilifeform ; it's a wonder they manage to relay anyffing at all
asciilifeform: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-10-17#1863344 << i expect it'll be something like the traditional state vodka monopoly in ru

asciilifeform: ( going for ~200 yrs nao, with very short pause during attempt at 'dry law' and then revolution )
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: The Canadian arrangement appears to be large "favored son" private grow ops selling profitably to the provincial governments who then go on to mark the stuff up even more.
BingoBoingo: Like the ABC stores in shitty US states, except with more explicit collusion than the ABC stores can get with liquor makers.
BingoBoingo: It also is apparently illegal in Canadia to have more than 30 grams of "legal" weed. I never recall there being any limits on how many budweisers a cornfuck can keep in their fridge.
asciilifeform: hey, догоним и перегоним америку (tm)(r), y'know, where it's soft-illegal to have moar than, what, 20k in benjie
asciilifeform: i suppose if yer found with 'stockpile', it 'proves' that you didn't get it from them ( why wouldja stockpile a thing that comes from 'abc store' )
trinque: the point is to make competition with state monopoly illegal
trinque: if stockpiling, must be selling
asciilifeform: that's the Official arg, at any rate; but i suspect a broader thing
BingoBoingo: What, National Geographic never aired 4 seasons of "Doomsday Preppers" about people keeping years of beans in their closets?
trinque: asciilifeform: if you can't own businesses, how can you own anything. so yes, much broader
trinque: same bullshit that wraps american industries in "compliance" sinew
BingoBoingo: Anyways, Canada only allows 4 plants as opposed to every where else's 6 plants or 6 mature plants. With 4 plants a Candian could havest anywhere from 40 grams to 20 kilograms dry weight.
BingoBoingo: And it is clear fiatists fear drugs as a more real currency than their own offering.
BingoBoingo: Republic settles in bitcoins, filthy hippies settle in weird dry flowers, fiatists instead try to imagineer their way out of settling transactions
asciilifeform: the moar general item alluded to , is that from pantshit pov , 'unauthorized hoarders' of ~any~ tradeable/valuable item, not merely btc,gold,magic leaf, are 'problem'
BingoBoingo: AHA, that is exactly why cannabis piece needed cultivation section
BingoBoingo: Promotion of the hoarding of tradable valuables is a principal republic value
BingoBoingo: Now, the dry flower hoarder is going to be poorer than the Bitcoin hoarder because it takes large amounts of flowers to sum up to anything of value
a111: Logged on 2018-07-16 17:05 asciilifeform: '...Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal...' etc
BingoBoingo: Other principal republican value is killing moths and vermin
asciilifeform: re 'preppers'(tm)(r), usg has a certain lulzy tradition, where they set up honeypot vendors for 'prepping supplies' (buckets, cosmoline, etc) and keep list of who's buyin', 'for later'
BingoBoingo: They do indeed
BingoBoingo at some point will likely edit and publish the out takes that weren't central enough to make cannabis piece.
BingoBoingo: Like how nearly all pantsuit grow guides push closet cultivation with ebay/amazon honeypot shopping lists
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: i once bought a lamp for indoor tomato pot; still getting occasional spamola re 'growism'

mircea_popescu: "here's a list of gps bracelets, anklets and necklaces for people who wanna break out of the zone" "are you fucking stupid ?" "niggers usually are."
asciilifeform: i've ended up on the spam lists, they push errything from dead-tree 'how-to'-s (because, i suppose, if chump is this dumb, he is prolly on aol, and can't download scans, and will ~pay~ for xerox-of-xerox...) , to faux bananistani 'passports', to weirdo sect/christ-besotted crapolade
a111: Logged on 2016-11-01 23:36 asciilifeform: and yes, being on that list apparently nominates you for EVERY pyramid scheme, herbal viagra, !!!!!!URGENT!!!!! faux-irs envelope, etc. scam in usa.
asciilifeform: btw if anyone recalls carl force, the sr 'detective' -- iirc he actually bought one of them 'passports' and thought to break from zone with it !
asciilifeform: ( i betcha his cellmates laugh even today when he tells about this, over a cup of whatever-they-drink-instead-of-chifir over there )
BingoBoingo: Now imagine Canada, they would advertise they are the Canadian Government selling fake passports
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: typically, for smalltime scamola targeted at outright downs syndrome cases, they use http://btcbase.org/log/2014-02-01#472247 algo, rather than direct marketing
a111: Logged on 2014-02-01 13:05 mircea_popescu: 4. you subdivide both divisions. now you have a list of people who know you fucked up twice, this you discard ; two lists of people who think you go tone out of two. these you merge ; a most valuable list of idiots who think you got 2 out of 2.
BingoBoingo: hanbot: Package recieved, please issue an invoice
asciilifeform pictures BingoBoingo uncrating a... duck
BingoBoingo: Why only one?
BingoBoingo: There is one known very priviledged duck in this world too valuable to be used to satisfy this transaction, and then there are the world's other ducks which are a tastier alternative to chicken and priced accordingly

asciilifeform: in other minor noose, http://p.bvulpes.com/pastes/hKCPp/?raw=true << preliminary db schema for node hunter
asciilifeform: ^ comments from db experts welcome ( trinque , ben_vulpes , mircea_popescu ? )
asciilifeform: ^ and if anyone has a handy dumpblock-derived list with which to populate known_blocks , plox to sign & post, otherwise i'ma bake one laters
asciilifeform: i'm currently thinking of giving 'tx observatory' a rollover of 3 days ( i.e. drop all that have time older than 3d, nightly ) to keep the mass manageable there
asciilifeform: probe algo currently simple: 1) ip:port thrown in search box 2) probed 3) getaddr 4) all ip:port from (3) queued for probe
asciilifeform: when idling, N (parallel) threads select probe candidates from 'nodes', with highest priority given to 'untried', followed by 'live', followed by 'dead', in the latter two cases probed if and only if 'time_probed' is > hour ago
asciilifeform: candidates added via peer recurse (i.e. getaddr output) start with state 'untried'
asciilifeform: if node answers, it gets asked version, then getaddr, then given 10sec to issue 'inv' (for tx observatory), then (not baked this yet) gets asked to provide a block from known_blocks.
asciilifeform: that's pretty much it.
asciilifeform: prolly goes without saying, but i'ma perma-ignore anyffing that aint on ipv4
asciilifeform: ( this includes ipv6, 'tor', whatever abortions )
asciilifeform: and eventually nodes that show 0 symptoms of prbism will get priority in rescan queue.
asciilifeform: ( in prelim experiment thus far, virtually errything that aint a known trb noad, appears to show one or more obv symptoms )
