snsabot: Logged on 2019-08-20 22:47:29 lobbes: but it is true that I was also failing *her* by not taking the reigns as I should have. The next girls, however, will be taught properly.
lobbes: wb to somewhat-civilisation mircea_popescu
lobbes: in other news, I'm in the process of provisioning a dedi server (for primarily a second trb node). I grabbed one with 2 512GB SSD drives. Now my question is: should I bother with RAID 1? Or will this just be stupid because they will wear at the same rate?
mircea_popescu: raid was immensely useful for the older drives. with ssds its' not clear you gain so much in either speed or reliability
mircea_popescu: in any case, there's not much point to two disk raid arrays ; nor to software raid.
lobbes: sounds reasonable to me. aite, I'ma tell em' no raid I think
lobbes: once this thing is up I'll probably be asking in #a (unless #mod6 still lives?) about doing a 'hot-start' with trb
lobbes: will also spin up a copy of alf's logger
mircea_popescu: bvt 's story of linux kernel retardation is eyewatering.
mircea_popescu: could you simply throw out the whole damn thing and replace with from-scratch random.c / h ?
mircea_popescu: in any case it is obvious that using it as intended (ie, pretending fg is what the linuxtards call a "hardware random generator") is ~wasting it. i dun wanna initialize the middle 32 bytes out of anything.
mircea_popescu: incidentally, the fucking notion of a byte-counted entropy pool is fucking ridiculous.
mircea_popescu: considering the keys we use are 4kb, it seems reasonable we should keep entropy pools of no less than 16kb ?
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: nao you know why i skipped the ' feed linux random ' stack entirely in '16. ( admittedly didn't get even half as far as bvt before barfed )

mircea_popescu: and 4 ? or 6 ?
asciilifeform: ( i.e. prophylactically pull one erry yr or so and insert fresh replacement )
asciilifeform: 4 is the min. that makes any sense
mircea_popescu: quite.
asciilifeform: algo -- simple, you pull the 1 that a) has nonzero write failure counter, or if none such, b) the one with highest blocks-written count .
asciilifeform: important point also -- ssd in raid never wins, only loses speed
asciilifeform: 'gain speed' applied strictly to mech hdd, they could be spun out of phase, i.e. cut seek time
asciilifeform: seek on ssd already ~0.
asciilifeform: 1tb ssd btw ~100bux nao. keep pile of spares, and dun hesitate to rotate prophylactically, they're a consumable.
asciilifeform: decent card ( 3ware, more or less it ) means you can swap w/out switching off machine.
asciilifeform: to where retire ssd? if still 'worx', e.g. trb node. lappies. if end of life ? stoke furnace. ( see mircea_popescu's piece with furnace. )
spyked: grrrr, this is annoying. ftr, I set the delay knob for feedbot msg delivery to 2 seconds and it still gets disconnected for some reason. I suspect it's something other than fleanode simply disconnecting, so I will ask users who are waiting on pending PMs from feedbot to bear with me for a while.

snsabot: Logged on 2018-10-12 12:56:05 mircea_popescu: in the 1980s engineers / cstronicists' defense, it was not yet understood how important entropy is to individuality and human existence.
spyked: mircea_popescu, meanwhile I found it wasn't the issue I initially thought! I'ma bring the bot back online shortly
mircea_popescu: kk
spyked: to detail: trinque's bot has a thread that pings the irc server and does lag tracking (the lag then is: pong_response_timestamp - ping_sent_timestamp); if it detects that the lag is high, then it tries to reconnect. so when feedbot spends a lot of time in the notification loop, it doesn't receive the pong and gets disconnected.
mircea_popescu: oh
mircea_popescu: this is bad design!!
spyked: the fix I'm currently applying is to have feedbot send notifications in short bursts so that it doesn't take over the main program loop
mircea_popescu: why doesnt the main program loop call the sender thing ONCE AT A TIME ?
mircea_popescu: can't, in general speaking, when plumbing the synch-asynch divide (such as for instance tryuibng to resolve through design the impedance mismatch between non-threqaded process and synchonous messaging) commit to any activity of an open-ended length. main loop gotta know at least approximately how long each call will take, or else it can't make them
spyked: mircea_popescu, for PM notifications, the sender is called only when the target nick is online; to find out whether a nick is connected, it sends an ISON and waits for a reply; and on the reply handler, it (until now) tried to process the entire message queue for that nick, which... yeah, that's a really bad idea.
mircea_popescu: yeah ok
spyked: the downside is that now messages are going to arrive somewhat slower -- ISONs aren't sent too often, so as to not abuse that command; but probably not that much of a problem either way. if a user was offline for a while, then he can wait the extra minutes to receive the messages.

asciilifeform actually has working copy of that compiler, 'erlang' , from 2000s (i.e. before the webtards got to 'improving' it) if anyone at some pt wants to experiment with this particular sunken uboat
asciilifeform: imho would be 9000x better to simply steal the technique and port to e.g. cmucl .
mircea_popescu: this is the first time i hear of some actually useful lisp improvement
asciilifeform: ( 'erlang' has a pretty martian syntax that most folx who didn't program in 'ml' or similar , dun have the digestive enzymes for )
mircea_popescu: logically, it'd be exactly the sort of spitshine fit for its shoes.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i've a pile of'em in notebook, but generally dun like to throw in unless pertinent to thrd
mircea_popescu: makes sense
mircea_popescu: but yes, functional language should be able to get closest to your 0 penalty.
asciilifeform: 'erlang' was ultra-fascist 'functional' , i.e. even to make variable in the usual sense is difficult
asciilifeform: author (one armstrong, recently dead) sewed it by taking various fp langs of the time, and mercilessly cutting cpu-expensive features (e.g. the infamous np-complete reductor of prolog, the 'lazy' of haskell, etc)
asciilifeform: by this merciless slicing, he was able to make so that almost entire state of a program is reducible to 'which threads are alive', and thus was able to achieve interesting results
snsabot: Logged on 2017-03-30 10:50:38 asciilifeform: trinque: erlang wasn't simply about 'uptime', or even 'no pointer arithmetic', it also was the only case i know of where process migration actually worked

asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i keep coming back in my notes to the swedes, simply b/c in their notation, a 'bulletproof' net of mutually-synchronized bots is suddenly ~trivial.
mircea_popescu: aha.
asciilifeform: ( for the curious : 'erlang' had 0 'shared memory' b/w threads. all inter-thread motion was in the form of messages (received in 'atomic' queues internally). these could consist of whatever -- symbols (a la lisp) , for simple 'a/b/c' cases ; strings of bits; etc. a message could be eaten, or forwarded to yet another thread, or even sent back to the sender. )
asciilifeform: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/trilema/2019-08-22#1930032 << to return to this : when asciilifeform laid out the (~8 y.o.!) kernel , to bake the 'demo' image for 'M' , found that ~whole thing~ is written in this style.

mircea_popescu: "open source"
asciilifeform: open sores.
asciilifeform: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/trilema/2019-08-22#1930033 << naively seems to asciilifeform that whole thing oughta be replaced with a single ring buffer, where 1) root can write 2) users can read (w/ settable max byte/sec quota/ea. perhaps) 3) erry read consumes a segment of the buffer, i.e. no 2 users get same chunk of FG tape 4) if buffer empties, machine goes into single-user mode and rings alarm .
snsabot: Logged on 2019-08-22 00:18:54 mircea_popescu: could you simply throw out the whole damn thing and replace with from-scratch random.c / h ?
mircea_popescu: nah, pretty sure you need two, to protect self from attrition attack
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: elaborate ?
asciilifeform: ( what means here 'attrition' ? and for what is the 2nd buffer ? )
mircea_popescu: imo correct design is 16kb to cpu-cache-sized inner ring buffer, wherein fg material is simply written into a loop, plain ; and from where high quality entropy is read blockingly. whenever the writing head threatens to overwrite the reading head, the overwritten bits are instead fed into outer ring
mircea_popescu: this outer ring should use two cprngs to stretch the flow-in, one fast and one good.
mircea_popescu: such that the outer ring is always full, and the inner ring is always good.
mircea_popescu: is this comprehensible ?
asciilifeform: the 1st half of this , i get, is same as what i sketched. but for what is the outer buf ? seems like a single ring of same length as the 2, gives same effect ?
mircea_popescu: no, it's not the same length, for one thing. 2nd buffer should be mb or larger ; and it gives the effect that there's an always-full entropy buffer
mircea_popescu: let me formalize this, 1sec.
mircea_popescu: ring buffers : Inner (small, 16kb to cpu-cache-size) ; Outer (large, 1 MB to swap partition size). each buffer has a writing head moving around it and a reading head moving around it, their position is W and R at any time.
mircea_popescu: hash functions : Fast (takes one byte, produces many bytes), Good (takes one byte, produces one byte).
mircea_popescu: the operation then consists of : 1. FG -> I.W 2. if I.W = I.R, I.R -> O.W, such that if O.R >= O.W/2, next O.W goes through HF filling many offset bytes ; if O.R <= O.W/2, next OW goes through HG, filling one offset byte.
mircea_popescu: this way - O is "always full" from the pov of userland ; I is protected from userland reading O.
mircea_popescu: such that it can't either deplete the machine entropy by reading mb/s nor can it figure out the internals by reading straight fg bytes
asciilifeform: you still gotta rate-limit the users' reads tho, or 1 could empty whole thing in burst, starving the rest, neh
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform, neh, hence the many.
mircea_popescu: that's why i say o is up to swap size. ti should be large enough to not be emptyable.
asciilifeform: possibly i'm thick, but what happens if particular user requests continuously ?
mircea_popescu: then the buffer cycles continuously.
asciilifeform: 1 FG gives ~7.5kB/s . it isn't difficult to read , from buffer, GB/s
mircea_popescu: HF "many" setting could in principle be 1 byte -> buffer size
asciilifeform: or is the idea that there's a per-user buffer which actually contains his ration, and reads block on ~that~ ?
mircea_popescu: nope.
mircea_popescu: O reads do not block.
asciilifeform: then i'm defo thick. let's work example ? machine booted up 5min ago. ergo primary FG buffer contains ~2MB. now i'ma a user, and i ask for dd if=/dev/random of=foo bs=1M count=3 , i.e. 3MB. nao what ?
mircea_popescu: but use my formalisms. so what, I is 16kb and O is 2mb ?
mircea_popescu: user asks for say 1gb, O feeds 1mb, at which point reading head is more than halfway writing head, so HF gets called, and fills the half that was just read
asciilifeform: same 'thermodynamic' problem , no matter how the output of FG is massaged, tho. if proggies ask for moar FG bits than FG has actually produced, they gotta block. ( linus fraudulently gave folx shitropy instead of entropy, so 'not block', but imho that's not even worth to discuss )
mircea_popescu: this cycle can continue until 1GB is pissed out. if any FG bytes make it in during the interval, they are the source for the writing, stretched by HF. if not, whatever, HG applies on already read bytes
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform, only applicable re I. O, never blocks, because H.
mircea_popescu: whicjh is even tje point of having both rings.
asciilifeform: so, in mircea_popescu's model, i asked for 3MB, while FG has only produced yet 2MB. what do i get ?
mircea_popescu: i can not tell you, because you do not read.
asciilifeform: i.e. eggog ?
mircea_popescu: dude, I JUST EXPLAINED IT ABOVE
mircea_popescu: read that, don't ask me to type it again, wth.
asciilifeform: i'm stumped on what 'can not tell you, because you do not read' means in physical terms.
mircea_popescu: you, stanislav, asked "where is the shop". i told you "go this and therefore" and you came back with "but where is the shop". at this point, this question can not be answered, BECAUSE YOU, STANISLAV, DO NOT READ.
asciilifeform officially stumped re how to convert mircea_popescu's formalism into program. perhaps bvt will crack this nut ? presently it eludes me.
mircea_popescu: but let's try it again. so, the I buffer is 16 kb, the O buffer is 2 MB. if the FG spits out 8kb/s or so, then the I buffer spits about 8kb/s or so into O, after the first two seconds,
mircea_popescu: now, the O buffer is, say, 2mb. if someone decides to read 1GB/s out of it,
mircea_popescu: then in the first ms, the R head of O will have moved halway towards the W head of it.
mircea_popescu: at this point, the HF (fast hash) will take one byte out of the next position of the R head, and produce MANY (ie, 1mb) worth of O filler from it.
mircea_popescu: thus replenishing what was read.
asciilifeform: ah so users who read moar than the available ration, get prngism?!
mircea_popescu: if that one byte is not yet available, from I, then the HG (good hash) will take half the O that was already read, and replenish it
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform, users who read O, get prng
asciilifeform: aaa.
mircea_popescu: in exchange, they get non blocking "entropy" reads.
asciilifeform: ok then makes sense.
mircea_popescu: yay.
mircea_popescu: that's why the two-hash system : you either have a byte of FG, to put into O, or you don't.
asciilifeform: seems to spec a somewhat diff item than originally contemplated tho ( where all userland proggies are guaranteed to get, if slowly, actual unique FG bits )
mircea_popescu: if you do, you stretch it into a "many" bytes. if you don't, you just prng those many bytes.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform, they are allowed to read I. that blocks.
mircea_popescu: entirely userland option.
asciilifeform: ok so the classical pair of 'random vs urandom' devs ?
mircea_popescu: exactly.
asciilifeform: then makes sense. i had missed 'stretched by...' when 1st reading.
mircea_popescu: right ?
mircea_popescu: now, the magic numbers are only here by need of example.
asciilifeform: ftr this is how i formerly thought the existing linux worked.
mircea_popescu: if indeed a stretch of say 8:1 is preferred, HF takes 1 byte makes 8, then the HG will work on 8byte buffers, take 8 bytes make 8 byres.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform, this is how linux should have worked.
mircea_popescu: anyway, exactly what stretch factor to use is a bit of an open question. may be worth it to permit the thing to self-adjust, based on O read volume.
asciilifeform: it seems like the obv. Right Thing. i.e. let tetris read from urandom, rsatron -- from random, etc.
mircea_popescu: though this comes at cost of complexity. imo only correct approach is to have this set ~at kernel compile~, and there it stays. if you declare I 16kb and O 2mb, then therefore your stretch factor is 256
mircea_popescu: nothing prohibits proggy reading 2mb ring buffer at gb/s speeds. it'll get... well, a lotta hashmaterial.
mircea_popescu: which is imo exaclty right.
asciilifeform contemplates what a bvt-style dissection of the current 'urandom' might reveal.
mircea_popescu: heh.
asciilifeform: oh hrm actually he does have a segment re subj

snsabot: Logged on 2019-08-22 21:38:59 trinque: more broadly, the question isn't so much what I could do with whatever IRC bot, it's what the hell should motivate me to sink more time into shit caked atop the thing I wish to see end.
asciilifeform: trinque: i cannot resist to wonder if the problem is in the hoster -- iirc deedbot used to stand up for weeks at a time , in earlier days
asciilifeform: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/trilema/2019-08-22#1930234 << near as i can tell , mp drilled him a new arse and consigned him to штрафбат for cowering in a cave for yr+ , rather than for sitting in hospital. ( see also mp's 'nickel' article )
snsabot: Logged on 2019-08-22 21:51:18 trinque: bringing things in closer, apparently phf's in the hospital or something, and is thus persona non grata?
asciilifeform: trinque: from the (very fragmentary) clues , seems to me that fella was demoralized somehow, for long time ( and possibly into bottle, tho tbf nothing specifically pointed to bottle )
asciilifeform: trinque: re 'irc, wish to see end' -- i also balked, but turns out even this chore had some interesting wtf-discoveries lying in wait, e.g. the apparently massive nonflatness of net lag topology
lobbes: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/trilema/2019-08-22#1930218 << 'tis mircea_popescu's chan, so his call. Though I imagine there is reason to keep them (e.g. maybe one day in the future someone wants to make a post re: "hey remember how IRC sucked?"). Point being: it was logged, so it is in the logs.
snsabot: Logged on 2019-08-22 20:51:35 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu, lobbes , et al : prolly could easily purge ~100% of spam, simply by detecting these. lemme know if you want.
asciilifeform: lobbes: aha. i made no attempt to clean out the spamola, it will remain unless mircea_popescu asks ' drop xyz where... ' etc
trinque: if I'm going to bolt znc to it, what point has a lisp bot?
