asciilifeform: ( do we have 1 per week yet ? )
mircea_popescu: i read all about it on trilema like five years ago.
asciilifeform: apparently https://archive.is/QjFEm is the latest snore.
shinohai: We welcome all companies, miners, developers and users to join us and help prepare bitcoin for the future << heh

a111: Logged on 2017-05-22 23:38 mircea_popescu: i wonder if the 10th 9 in that latitude figure is correct, or was it really an 8.
asciilifeform: gotta wonder if these come out of 'ints don't exist' js liquishitsoup
mircea_popescu: every two bit tramp with a plan wants to prepare my pie for "the future".
mircea_popescu: i am shocked by this impredictable turn of events. really, he who hasn't and wishes he had will talk of futurez ?
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform quite likely.
mod6: evenin'
shinohai: heya mod6
mod6: how goes shinohai?
shinohai: Not bad here, puttering about. How goes the lab tests?
mod6: going well.
mod6: re-doing the tests for FG1 and the first test of FG2. Basically these were run prior to the 'fullblock' thread.
mod6: !#s fullblock
a111: 9 results for "fullblock", http://btcbase.org/log-search?q=fullblock
mod6: should have them done within a few days. then i gotta try to do some fg-anal.
mircea_popescu: fg-anal sure has a dong to it.
asciilifeform: watch out , pcb dun have rounded cornerz
asciilifeform: gotta file'em
asciilifeform: and pins, ow
asciilifeform: i suppose one could pour the entire assembly into silicone...
mod6: im not exactly sure what kinda anal. might just put some stats in there to pull-together some of the info from all 15 tests.
mod6: we'll see how it goes
asciilifeform: asciilifeform used 'dieharder' to reject a handful of screamingly defective analogue units , but currently isn't sure that it's good for much re a ~working~ one
asciilifeform: ( the grade outputted by the 'hungrier' tests appears to be in direct proportion to sample size, and very little else; and FG, /dev/urandom, various fashionable prng, intel's mysterymeatrng, and several others, all exhibit same effect, 100% pass begins somewhere b/w 1-3GB sample size. )
asciilifeform: the idiotic 'looping' cannot (afaik) be switched off. (yes i could patch the src but the result will be a nonstandard tester )
asciilifeform: ( see also http://btcbase.org/log/2017-04-26#1647896 thread. )☝︎
a111: Logged on 2017-04-26 01:39 asciilifeform: imho it ought to return an ~algo~ for attempting a better-than-chance prediction of nth bit, given n;
mod6: yeah
mod6: I might just end up writing a page that links all the ent/dieharder results.
mod6: i dunno yet; but it'll be something
mod6: re http://thebitcoin.foundation/tickets/v_tickets.html << 1, 2, 3 are certainly complete.
mod6: will be removing these.
shinohai: `t` has proved useful as well, just for personal recor-keeping
shinohai: *record
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform the problem is insoluble and dieharder/ent/etc are fundamentally braindamaged. there's no way to avoid the "give it a large enough sample it'll show 100%" problem specifically because there's no such thing as random bitstream.
mod6: yeah, was thinking heavily about the new version lastnight. need to get some work into that yet.
mod6: mircea_popescu: werd
mod6: !%r v 2
mod6: !%r v 3
mod6: !%r v 1
mircea_popescu: moreover, even something as simple as "discern if bitstream X is a linear function with an irrational parameter" is beyond what can be established.
mircea_popescu: can trivially show this is weaker than " return an ~algo~ for attempting a better-than-chance prediction".
mod6: %!e v 4 T "Update V" "Implement ability for V to pull separate projects from the mirror based on hash (or possible alias)."
mod6: gah
mod6: !%e v 4 T "Update V" "Implement ability for V to pull separate projects from the mirror based on hash (or possible alias)."
mod6: !%e v 5 T "Publish V-Genesis" "Publish V-Genesis post 99994 release."
mircea_popescu: because i've had it explaining this in private : yes http://btcbase.org/log/2017-05-19#1659420 goes to 1. for the same money, f(x) = 1/n^x g(x) = 1/x converge to 1/n, which is any arbitrary value (including 0 when n=x so f(x) = 1/x^x. nfi why this isn't evident, but anyway.☝︎
a111: Logged on 2017-05-19 20:27 mircea_popescu: anyway, to humor you and with absolutely no dispositive intent : let f(x) = 1/x ; let g(x) = 1/x*2. let x ->n. 0**0 = 1 implies x -> 1 when x->n.
shinohai: "Facebook will also allow people to livestream attempts to self-harm because it ‘doesn’t want to censor or punish people in distress’, it added." http://archive.is/AJNoW

asciilifeform: http://btcbase.org/log/2017-05-23#1660248 << this ain't the problem -- already right off the bat , sane operator knows that it is physically impossible to test for ~good~ rng, only for ~bad rng~☝︎
a111: Logged on 2017-05-23 01:33 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform the problem is insoluble and dieharder/ent/etc are fundamentally braindamaged. there's no way to avoid the "give it a large enough sample it'll show 100%" problem specifically because there's no such thing as random bitstream.
mircea_popescu: i keep waiting for one of these actually doing it properly : rubbing self with thyme and stuffing bacon in the cuts.
mircea_popescu: mmm.
asciilifeform: per dijkstra's 'testing can demonstrate the presence of bugs, but never their absence'
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform otherwise, the presence of "whitening" is conversely the statement of the impossibility of proper "ent"
asciilifeform: aha
asciilifeform: whitening == gluing petrol tank gauge to 'full'
asciilifeform: http://btcbase.org/log/2017-05-23#1660255 << again, nobody (rather, not asciilifeform) asked for general case -- it is provably impossible (see chaitin)☝︎
a111: Logged on 2017-05-23 01:36 mircea_popescu: can trivially show this is weaker than " return an ~algo~ for attempting a better-than-chance prediction".
asciilifeform: but to display ~existing~ test failures in predictor-algorithm form
asciilifeform: and any test that cannot be formulated in this way -- is rubbish and oughta go away
mircea_popescu: the problem is thge swet of possibly existing failures is transfinite or some shit
mircea_popescu: necessarily no test can be formulated.
mircea_popescu: as per goedel.
asciilifeform: let's take concrete example -- if i make a rubbish rng that leads 'ent' to conclude that pi == 4
asciilifeform: this can be restated as a better-than-chance predictor of n-th bit of stream.
mircea_popescu: sure.
mircea_popescu: but this is not what you're asking, for a test that sometimes finds something, is it.
asciilifeform: actually it was !
mircea_popescu: ah, i misunderstood.
asciilifeform: dieharder etc oughta output f(n) = $guess
mircea_popescu: no see, now you made it in the general again.
mircea_popescu: do you want it to miss most cases, or do you want it to not miss most cases ?
asciilifeform: ( with $guess being some particular algebraic )
asciilifeform: this is not about the tests, but the output of same
asciilifeform: let's take a painfully pedantic example:
mircea_popescu: again, irrational numbers are the problem. pix+e is not "algebraic" in this sense.
asciilifeform: say an rng fails the 'birthdays' test.
asciilifeform: because the output byte is never ever 0xaa .
asciilifeform: so we get a sadness equation:
mircea_popescu: i suppose distributions is the sane way to go about this. study if taking byte as 3 gives uneven distribution as opposed to taking byte as 8, say.
asciilifeform: f(n) = random(0..a9 + ab..ff)
asciilifeform: (let's accept this range-with-hole notation.)
asciilifeform: my original contention is that any test which, upon 'failure', cannot produce a sadness equation, is ill-conceived.
mircea_popescu: in this sense ~all of the dieharder tests do produce one implicitly.
asciilifeform: aha!
mircea_popescu: chi squares or w/e, monte carlo etc
asciilifeform: right. output ought be a 'hey schmuck, if you use this rng, i can predict, like-so...'
mircea_popescu: the problem hgere is : you are guarding the wife's door rather than her cunt. she dun need to use the door.
mircea_popescu: it's so easy to make perfectly balanced faux entropy, only some very inept usg-ians would use anything else.
mircea_popescu: very low standard/
asciilifeform: so next step is: once we have a sadness equation, you can take it and test its guess rate vs expected value, with new output sample.
asciilifeform: and yes, this is still same old tests, nothing magically different about them, there will ~never~ be a mechanical test for 'good rng'
asciilifeform: because it is not an arithmetic attribute .
asciilifeform: but function of rng AND enemy. (see ancient thread, 2014ish iirc)
asciilifeform: however there is a number of tests-for-broken-rng. my idea was strictly re an algo for how to measure their actual relevance .
asciilifeform: ( what delta over random stab in the dark does the supposed predictor give the enemy . )
asciilifeform: tests as we have them now are useful because they can reveal 'organic' damage or misdesign, e.g. stuck bits. rather than malfeasance.
asciilifeform: brb
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo ITS constituents!
BingoBoingo: tyvm fixed
asciilifeform: the 'formulate as predictor' came from asciilifeform's ongoing regular stabs at breaking shitoshi's rng.
mircea_popescu: the sort of thing one's not well advised to stop trying even should he succeed.
asciilifeform: aha, like all 'tests reveal presence, never absence..'
mircea_popescu: no, moreover, because stopping;'s suspicious.
asciilifeform: i wonder who else ever even mentioned subj publicly.
mircea_popescu: people on tardstalk.
asciilifeform: do they still even nao?
asciilifeform: and, supposing they do not : was the stopping - suspicious..?
mircea_popescu: lol
mircea_popescu: the stopping of talking in the tardsgroup is never suspicious. they talk at the margins, as per the "gotta say unsaid things" heuristic.

diana_coman will be really happy when those are finally drained
mod6: yeah. it sounds awful.
diana_coman: in denial of what? they are happy because they are on the road to where they need to be; they don't know it/acknowledge it,so what difference does that make?
trinque: I dunno that so much agency is involved, though. These are the descendents of empty creatures that used to be animated by the flow of will from their owners.
trinque: well in the argie case, mixed with indigenous whatever, I guess.
mircea_popescu: diana_coman evidently.
mircea_popescu: trinque very much indigenous. see rosas, for instance. guy is EXACTLY a "bad tyrant" by the "our democracy" bestiary ; was ELECTED. with genuine majority.
mircea_popescu: by a people who had their head screwed on right.
mircea_popescu: only known similar example being soviet union. stalin - also elected. except rosas didn't actually behead his own lieutenants or all thje rest of the nonsense associated with stalinism. which is why they never fucking mention him.
trinque: might be racis, but the more tribal types always end up 1) out-fucking and 2) opting for dr prince james ibonga
mircea_popescu: im not sure there is such a thing as a tribal type. basically any group of hucows has some humans and some cows mixed in. what you call "tribal types" is where cows are biologically dominant. cultivate the population for a few generations, it's just as capable to northern italy 15cento as northern italy itself. which, if you decultivate for a few generations...etc.
mircea_popescu: the interplay between biological (ie, headcount) and political (ie, powerspeech count) domination in the hucow herd is ~the whole of history, anthropology, sociology etc.
trinque: aha, totally agree. was groping for same with "animated by will of superiors"
mircea_popescu: aha.
mircea_popescu: so it's rather nonsensical to say "blacks are dumb". if you spend a century killing the humans, you'll be left with mostly cows.
mircea_popescu: kinda what the russians were trying to do to the polish, re katyn etc.
mircea_popescu: smarter than zee germanz.
mircea_popescu: anyway, there's a reason every army prefers the enemy kill its infantry than it's officers -- and it's also how war improves the population.
trinque: a great aunt of mine, from oldschool italian family of some note, said to my mother "The air here is toxic to family."
trinque: not speaking there of the anglo notion of fambly
mircea_popescu: the only problem with such improvement is that the notion that "we shouldn't hafta die" becomes universal and then therefore...
trinque: maybe why I give too much weight to the biological; italians are racist as hell after all
trinque: were anyway, no such thing as italians here now
mircea_popescu: trinque aha! quite very much http://trilema.com/house-of-strangers
mircea_popescu: show it to your grandmother, she might appreciate.
trinque: dead
trinque: the lady I'm speaking of; grandfather would be the related one
mircea_popescu: well, if you see her.
trinque will have to check out
asciilifeform: trinque: biologically -- at least to naked eye -- ar folx are entirely european
trinque: I recall the smell of tragedy around the italian side of family; it was the gnarled vestige of something that would claim lineage back to old mancinus
asciilifeform: at least in the capital
mircea_popescu: ukrs, also.
asciilifeform: aha
mircea_popescu: fuck, the chinese are starting to look european from behind.
trinque: successive compromises, gotta leave italy because lets not die in the street with mussolini, gotta leave new england because hierarchy is illegal, lets just wither here on this beach.
mircea_popescu suspects "looking european" is simply a placeholder for "looking like your entire fambly didn't starve since the day it was invented"
mircea_popescu: trinque should have gone to mexico. hierarchy does fine.
trinque: aha. didn't, and *entirely their fault*
mircea_popescu: nfi why the italians went to the us and to argentina, the socialist shitholes at the two ends of the continent.
trinque: I cannot believe the fucking squander
asciilifeform: btw why mircea_popescu not in mexico ?
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i am a being of ~pure energy, my presence is chiefly nonphysical!
mircea_popescu: i like the weather here, what.
asciilifeform: lolk
mircea_popescu: +ticas tetonas. wtf, mexicans. i can buy saddlebags at the store.
trinque: asciilifeform: if considered earnestly I have to blame the clown-suit socialism and decadent descendents
trinque: though if danielpbarron's version caught on I'd much prefer that to teh alternatives
trinque: unbelievable rot flows out of this place "lakeway church" nearby, literally "give us your money and god will... like... manifest you some more"
mircea_popescu: tbh, cca 1880 it'd have been rather hard to predict us will simply check out, let the dumbest of the dumb handle affairs for a century.
trinque: path runs straight through all those idiot christian revivals
mircea_popescu: the unholy alliance of neoprotestant old men + bored housewives. horrible.
mircea_popescu: trinque quite so. the men permitted the women to betray the house of their master for "the house of the lord".
mircea_popescu: beyond fucking scandalous. should have whipped them face to face.
trinque: indeed, the way these women speak of Teh Lord is fraught with perverse sexuality. modern male cuck is her beloved son.
mircea_popescu: quite.
mircea_popescu: fucking mary complex.
mircea_popescu: i suppose the retrospective correct analysis is, 1. you get a bunch of elite people get together (everyone who made the trip was elite -- else they couldn't afford the significant proceedings ; this includes the slaves, for the same reason -- if they weren't 10s nobody'd have taken them across and that's what in africa cca then it meant to be elite) ; 2. they have no way to communicate, for lack of language (because language
mircea_popescu: is very much http://btcbase.org/log/2016-12-21#1587276 ). consequently a situation of "whoever forges common language first wins" and so therefore 4. idiotic derpage "bible" crap won BECAUSE it was the ~only common ground.☝︎
a111: Logged on 2016-12-21 18:32 mircea_popescu: because no, words don't "have meanings". your meanings for ANY WORD are a function of ALL THE OTHER WORDS YOU KNOW. which is why my definitions regularily blow out english dictionaries, wikipedia and other sources of "wisdom" out of the water - i know more words, and in this knowledge i know all the words i know ~better~. infinitely and irreproducibly so.
mircea_popescu: if this does not prove bible is a poisonous, anti-human text which one follows to his perdition, nothing does.
asciilifeform: the plantators were , by all indications, aware of this
mircea_popescu: obviously the elite christian response would be to point out that the basis of unholy communion was in no sense the holy writ, but merely what every language recalled of it, which is to say they distilled all the holy out of the writ.
mircea_popescu: perhaps. nevertheless... unreliable item. (which is exactly catholic doctrine : "follow bible without priest, you'll go straight to hell in handbasked". it sounds absurd but then again it's lived history.)
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform mebbe.
mircea_popescu: but just as whiskey was indian's bible, so was bible imigrants' whiskey.
trinque: I take in danielpbarron's, when he speaks of it, that it is a knotted rope with which he beats himself. the other folks babbling about it, it's a damned gold star of "I am god's child"
mircea_popescu: actual alcohol couldn't have gotten them, caucasians are used to it.
trinque: former's sort of an odd "I will wear weighted clothing and thus be stronger"... the "forgiveness of sin" thing I suppose lets one take the weights off time to time.
trinque: I can also see the wisdom in seeing oneself as by nature, a lying sack of shit, requiring discipline to forge a human from the clay.
trinque: none of this is present in Christ (TM)
mircea_popescu: people are born quite dirty, what can you do. gotta wash all the guts, mucus and shit off somehow.

asciilifeform: 'Arthurs said all of them shared neo-Nazi beliefs but he later converted to Islam and killed the roommates because they disrespected his faith'

mircea_popescu: lol!
mircea_popescu: check that out islamneonazi. alakhu snackbar!
trinque: > his muslim countries
trinque: bahaha
trinque: god the kids are bored today.
mircea_popescu: country of africa (good) ; country of muslim (neonazi) ; country of russia (spies) ; country of china (daddy!) ; country of our democracy.
mircea_popescu: the five provinces of the world. wu shu or w/e it';s called.
mircea_popescu: for instance : the reason for eg, "trump is nazi" narrative is possibly mostly based on the observation that country of russia bothers and disturbs country of our democracy just like country of muslim bothers and disturbs the good country of africa and therefore the russians must be nazis and probably the muslims are also spies! notwithstanding that they have serious problems with comprehending basic crypto etc. trump must be
mircea_popescu: a nazi because reasoning through simile!
mircea_popescu: which is the true boon of democracy : if everyone must be a people because they look kinda like one, then everything must be something else because it vaguely looks like it, and welcome to the dark ages.
asciilifeform: but where will the cynocephali live

mircea_popescu: contact id based on pubkey, i have nfi why they think it dun leak metadata ; also no idea why they bundled tor in it.

asciilifeform: compared performance of 'kindergarten' multiplier ( halfword at a time, uses machine's MUL instr. which apparently IS constant-time on x86 (but NOT on arm! would need test routine at warmup to establish if can use MUL ) )
asciilifeform: halfword, rather than word, at a time, because of the idiocy of compilers, which LOSE the carry flag (see last 4 or so threads re subj)
asciilifeform: so to get X * Y -> product, carry
asciilifeform: gotta split X and Y into half-words, and multiply a half-word at a time, into a word-sized space
asciilifeform: and take upper half of THAT, as carry.
