mircea_popescu: i use it every day lol.
asciilifeform: trinque: deedbot down ?
asciilifeform: meanwhile, in heathendom oddities,
asciilifeform: mats: neat overview, in the style of 'why ada'
asciilifeform: mats: i haven't built anyffing useful from ice40 with own hands yet. but, interestingly, when bought a 'scsi2sd' device for replacing disk in bolix box, found that author in fact used ice40 for the job
trinque: I've noticed some problems with tls connections on openbsd using sbcl and cl+ssl, here and elsewhere actually.
trinque: probably the thing to do is a) rip out the tls part and b) get deedbot hosted on cuntoo
feedbot: << Qntra -- USG Mulling 90's Crypto Style Export Controls On "AI Technology"
asciilifeform: trinque: iirc the tls crapola is only there because fleanode went full tard coupla yrs back and demands it for nick auth
asciilifeform: ( plox to correct if i'm mistaken here )
asciilifeform: trinque: hm, apparently i was wrong about this, it only demands sslism if yer using cloaks
asciilifeform: if one absolutely insists on that feature, prolly Right Thing would be to patch bot so can hang off a znc ( i tried this with own hands, but failed, the existing item is apparently tailored to fleanode-direct connection )
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: the 'export ban' list is a hilarious read. ~nothing is ever removed from it, most of the thing was written in '80s-90s, and contains such items as fpga (afaik none are made in usa or have ever been, but somehow this dun stop the clowns) , and in practice seems to be used as 'lettre de cachet' against undesirables.
asciilifeform: (for instance, not only 'buy in china, sell to france, while using reich bank' counts as 'export', but usg subjects physically getting up off arse and moving to wherever and working on 'controlled tech' also counts, etc)
BingoBoingo: Well, sure. Thing starts as an ego inflation exercise: "Can't export because SOMOS NUMERO 1" Y despues ObamArgentina goes from un pais rico en Thalers Alemman to incapacity to export soy.
BingoBoingo: Meanwhile in local news (Malvin again):
asciilifeform: in other noose, earlier this wk , asciilifeform tried to repeat test , but using 'gmp', the 'uncut' version of koch's thing, with asmism etc. but lo and behold, it is apparently impossible to repeat the full test battery, because :
asciilifeform: >> 'void mpz_powm_sec (mpz_t rop, const mpz_t base, const mpz_t exp, const mpz_t mod) ... It is required that exp > 0 and that mod is odd.'
asciilifeform: apparently Only A Terrorist (tm) would want to raise number to ~even~ power.
asciilifeform: ( i.e. loox like they use montgomery's algo. )
asciilifeform: fwiw ordinary (no attempt at constanttime on their end) mpz_powm() , gives 0.005s . (so the asm does help'em.)
asciilifeform: << sores.
mircea_popescu: for the record, is exactly rude and nude
asciilifeform: guten tag, mircea_popescu !
mircea_popescu: if you get rid of the lower bottom, thus and therefore averages climb.
mircea_popescu: heya alfie.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: iirc auschwitz also had 'elixir of youth' effect on the folx who were still movin' in '45
mircea_popescu: you know ? "i wonder how come all holocaust survivors live so long".
asciilifeform: ditto gulag
mircea_popescu: "i also wonder why all these rich folks gather round and laugh their asses at us, the goddess' chosen folk, all the damn time"
asciilifeform: to the point that some folx used expression 'so-and-so was mothballed' (i.e. 'in conservation')
BingoBoingo: Same thing happens with many cultivated plants. Application of the right and grave trauma (repeatedly in the case of fruit trees) does all sorts of wonders
asciilifeform: ( the gulag folx chalked it up to 'lack of vodka' for the most part tho )
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: that's the usual heathen hypothesis (aka 'hormesis'). mircea_popescu seems to favour the other one (and seems moar plausible to asciilifeform) , where straight 'burn-in test'
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Well, could be a little bit of both
asciilifeform: could; i have nfi.
BingoBoingo: Growing tomatoes back home the biggest bitch and mortality sink was hardening off the indoor started seedlings.

mircea_popescu: meanwhile in older lulz :
BingoBoingo: Plants tend to be huge pussies indoors. The survivors tended to do pretty well.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i have plain old tcp with 'pehbot' ( via trinque's cl proggy )
asciilifeform: it dun use cloaks tho
mircea_popescu: well, cloaks don't work in any absolute sense, anyway.
asciilifeform: they're decorative, imho.
asciilifeform: i dun see what, if anything, is lost if they were thrown.
mircea_popescu: that they are. i mean nothing wrong with having, and it's an achievement for say nicoleci to get herself one ; but i wouldn't base design decisions on them.
asciilifeform: aha
mircea_popescu: anyway, what's the idea, nickserv rejects your call if un"encrypted" ?
asciilifeform: iirc strictly if using cloaks.
trinque: afaik they're just displaying the rdns in deedbot's case, isn't a cloak
trinque: but yep, will get a build out without sslism and see what happens.
mircea_popescu: << it says the ~mod~ has to be odd, not the exp. the exp nonzero.
a111: Logged on 2019-01-02 17:33 asciilifeform: >> 'void mpz_powm_sec (mpz_t rop, const mpz_t base, const mpz_t exp, const mpz_t mod) ... It is required that exp > 0 and that mod is odd.'
mircea_popescu: patch out the test, i guess. they're "clever" like that.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: montgomery demands that mod an' exp be ~coprime~
asciilifeform: how they enforce this, is apparently like this
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i didnt try patching out the test ( given as it's got montgomery, the answer will be soup ) but did try for odd exp, got ~same~ as for the nonconstanttime gmp knob ( which is pretty hilarious, means that they dun do anything differently for 'constant time' variant, evidently )
asciilifeform: at some point if i can be arsed to read their sores, will find out what, specifically.
asciilifeform: the 'uncut' gmp is not afaik used anywhere in our mechanisms, with the exception of phuctor, where a (patched) variant is used for bernsteinization
mircea_popescu: that's what i mean, they're "clever"
asciilifeform: at some point i'ma do the bernsteinizer in straight asm. ( but this is ~9000th on the list of things-to-do atm )
asciilifeform: << the sores of the boobytrap leaked same yr, it was mightily disappointing ( no fancy trojan, but instead a little thing that sent back victim's external ip / winblowz ver / nic addr / etc, sorta like what microshit itself sends out when winblowz crash )
a111: Logged on 2019-01-02 17:43 mircea_popescu: meanwhile in older lulz :
asciilifeform: these, apparently, counted as 'evidence'
mircea_popescu: aha.
mircea_popescu: i think of the various strange ideas you started off with, this "hitler is intellectually respectable, does great magicks" thing fared the worst.
asciilifeform: eh the notion there from start was 'goodstuff is used sparingly'. but i've nfi where used.
asciilifeform: imho e.g. diddled pgp rng, is moar interesting than firefucks buffer overrun, the latter is used 9000/d but for whom is used the former i have nfi, it hasn't publicly leaked.
mircea_popescu: it's a democracy, dood, it has no conception of hierarchy.
asciilifeform: it imho makes sense tho that the most idiotic/bruteforce-powered ( per naggum's formulation ) usgisms, also leak the most .
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: bureaucracy very much has concept of hierarchy tho.
mircea_popescu: not at all.
asciilifeform: ok i cannot resist to bite; how does this work
asciilifeform: we're still talkin' of same thing, neh ? brit-style military bureaucracy. 9000 titles, chains of command, rigour 'to point of rigour mortis' ... neh ?
mircea_popescu: no, we're talking of "we're all in this together and women may even be a part of it and we're not even gonna call them tailhookers, invent pompous nonsense like 'hr' and seat everyone at a table" bs.
asciilifeform: this -- exists
mircea_popescu: brit thing entirely unrelated to this.
mircea_popescu: xx could at the very most be secretary.
asciilifeform: it also seems to coexist with a cohort of folx hired in '60,70s,80s, greybeards, who actually built some working stuff
mircea_popescu: so yes, implicit notion of hierarchy, xy > xx. no more than that, not really, but some hierarchy, no matter how fducking stupid, still beats none.
asciilifeform: granted, scythe of 'father time' does impose an asymptotic bound on the whole thing. eventually usg will be 100% resemble staff of arsebook, google, etc, then curtain call.
asciilifeform: atm it's some (unknown to me) % chetty's gen.
mircea_popescu: hey, "nobody watches pulp fiction because [some anon schmuck claimed she was raped by] Weinstein", i actuallty heard this said (by some girly who never saw any movie worth the mention in her ~~~entire~~~ coupla decades. they say this, too, like it's a thing. "my whole life". )
mircea_popescu: meanwhile, the last time anything worth watching had anyone from our colonies involved was... about then.
asciilifeform: for asciilifeform , hollywood began (and mostly ended) with those bootleg vhs cassettes in 1990.
mircea_popescu: cuz that is the fucking job of the producer, i don't care what "american moron's association" "trade practices" are. as long as it's a set, and something'\s shooting, the producer's job is to rape the talent.
asciilifeform: iirc he even gets specially-issued leather couch for this
asciilifeform: ( in turn designed by freud... )
mircea_popescu: preferably on-cam. the fundamental moment of cinema is when mr talking potatohead whips out a home-brought stick of butter and unexpectedly buttseks maria schneider over her amazed surprise. naught else.
mircea_popescu: comfortable people don't do things worth watching.
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: In their dreams, that's San Fernando. Hollywood jacks off into plants nowadays, per Miramax.
asciilifeform: btw in other gmp lib lullities,
asciilifeform: ( tldr : gmp not only relies on 'assert's to barf on various 'prohibited' conditions like even moduli, but barfs coredump ~with seekritz~ and ~cannot be switched off~ )
asciilifeform: imho it's pretty hilarious, that the heathens think they have 'crypto libs' that 'work'
mircea_popescu: what's hilarious is the ever-present whereby they'll imaginarily seat themselves in my seat and start spewing slash assorted nonsense about "homebrew crypto" lalala.
a111: Logged on 2018-05-04 17:15 zx2c4: mircea_popescu: oh. so. "the world doesnt care about the cool hackers on the internet, but only the assholes with prestigious positions." this has been a widely known complaint for a long time

mircea_popescu: here, have a recent sample : AL_GA_Peach 26F Exploring "The message literally cuts off after whatever it is you’re. I don’t know not having all of the information is a mark against my intelligence but okay."

mircea_popescu: doh.
asciilifeform: i thought it was a www '2.0' thingie
mircea_popescu: what do you think all those "jobs" out there are made out of.
mircea_popescu: biquarterly i get a "but mp, you know how you could really improve trilema readership ?! MAKE IT AN APP!!!" "why ?" "because i have unexamined headcockroaches about the influence, importance and interest of social media" "how about we put your cunt on your linkedin and see how long until someone says something ?" "FAPFAPFAPFAP"
mircea_popescu: then the INSTANTLY!!!!! turns into minutes, that turn into long hours and longer days, weeks and whatever, eventually the idea forms in the precious cuntlet's brainbox that no, just because she's never heard anyone call her stupid before dun mean jack ; and all this "consensus" of silence is in the end exactly that : a consensus OF SILENCE.
asciilifeform: what 'jobs' made of << i'm still stuck in 1990s, where they're 'made of' winblowz bugs..
mircea_popescu: yes well.
asciilifeform: << oblig vintagelul
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: re 'homebrew crypto', there actually was a 1990s plague of commercial shitware folx who flunked arithmetic and then went to 'implement rsa', with exponent = 1 and so on
asciilifeform: ( the punchline is that koch, ssl, etc are ~in this set~ )
mircea_popescu: yeah, and their name is collectively "koch" and "the gnu foundation"
mircea_popescu: right.
asciilifeform: there's 4 or 5 'libs' in common use (depending on whether count microshit's)
asciilifeform: on top of these, 4 or 5 iron 'libs' ('smartcards', etc), where even sadder algos in use

mircea_popescu: asciilifeform this entire, "anonymous" "deep web" etc is the cowboy hat and snap toy pistol of the 2010s.
mircea_popescu: anyone even remembers those things ? long strip of ticker tape rolled up, with spots of gunpowder or w/e, phosphorus in the middle, pistol had a hammer that fell on the spot made some noise and some smoke.
mircea_popescu: VERY AUTHENTIC
BingoBoingo: I remember. They started to disappear from retail something around second grade when anything that wasn't Chicom plastic got purged from the walmart toy shelves
BingoBoingo: There were indeed plastic versions for short time
mircea_popescu: "too violent" or w/e, "insufficiently respectful of the cunt worlview"
BingoBoingo: Well near the end they also switched from tape to rings of 8 charges
