ThickAsThieves: or even say, if Bitstamp is no longer trading 500btc per day, then this bet resolves as No
ThickAsThieves: two bets in one!
BingoBoingo: Most good Bitbets have at least 5 or 50 secret subbets tucked into them though
BingoBoingo: I.e. "Who could anticipate that S.Dice would cease to be a tradable thing"
ThickAsThieves: erik?
BingoBoingo: ThickAsThieves: See the Yes bet on February 23rd http://bitbet.us/bet/113/bitbet-will-we-worth-more-than-satoshi-dice/

BigBlox: hello hello
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [PETA] 9 @ 0.06700049 = 0.603 BTC [-] {2}
kakobrekla: if you are talking about bitbet, mods resolve bets, not some random strangers
BigBlox: hi, yes mods, they sent me here
BigBlox: hello strangers
BigBlox: are there any bitbets mods here?
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 400 @ 0.00082707 = 0.3308 BTC [+]
kakobrekla: perhaps, or maybe someone else will be able to help
BigBlox: k, well basically i entered the altcoin bet, that was to overtake litecoin, i said yes, i emailed and was told it was a scam, i said i didnt agree, specifically said i didnt want to cancel my bet, and it was still cancelled
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [AM100] 19 @ 0.00574998 = 0.1092 BTC [+] {3}
kakobrekla: which bet is that can you give a link pointing to a bet in the list of accepted bets
BigBlox: yes, http://bitbet.us/bet/621/any-altcoin-will-surpass-litecoin-in-market-capitalization/
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [NEOBEE] 347 @ 0.00446999 = 1.5511 BTC [-]
kakobrekla: how was it canceled, its is resolved as yes
BigBlox: the auroracoin bet :/
kakobrekla: yes what about it
Duffer1: perhaps you tried to send btc after the result was known but bet wasn't closed yet
BigBlox: i doubt it, it was still open a few days after i sent it
Duffer1: odd
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [NEOBEE] 55 @ 0.00447 = 0.2459 BTC [+]
kakobrekla: time closing != time when result is known
kakobrekla: sorry, i should say !====
BigBlox: heres the date: 03-03-14 05:55
BigBlox: and it was resolved today
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [AM100] 96 @ 0.00574997 = 0.552 BTC [-] {2}
mike_c: what was your bet? link to it
BigBlox: mine is the last one, on the 3rd for .08
BingoBoingo: BigBlox: Yeah, you bet after things were know it seems, but before they had yet to be resolved. Tis a dangerous time to bet
BigBlox: i sent it before aurora beat litecoin, then i wrote to ask if they were resolving it
BigBlox: i actually didnt know if it was going to but i believed in aurora from the get go so i was pretty sure :)
BigBlox: i mean i'm glad i got my refund, not trying to be a drama queen, but i was surprised i didnt win since i was the one asking, since the 3rd
kakobrekla: then provide the necessary evidence that aurora indeed aurora had not yet crossed litecoin mkt cap at 03-03-14 05:55 (it doesnt matter when you send it, it matters when you are confirmed)
kakobrekla: and -aurora once.
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [RENT] 200 @ 0.0055 = 1.1 BTC
BigBlox: k, where do i send it
kakobrekla: this box is ok
BigBlox: i took a screen shot to show my friend :)

ozbot: SEC vs. pirateat40 2
ThickAsThieves: highlights here http://buttcoin.org/pirateat40-became-bill-cosby-coins
ThickAsThieves: "The Fed is using curent exchange rates (3/3/14) to say investors were defrauded of $149 million"
BigBlox: oh before, i have shots of the time after it passed, how can i get that?
kakobrekla: http://buttcoin.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/03/Screen-Shot-2014-03-05-at-1.34.57-PM.png
kakobrekla: smickles ?
BigBlox: i mean the bet showed up on the ledger, then the next day on the 4th i emailed, does that count or can i show you an email with the time and date?
kakobrekla: ok so what does an email help to prove exactly?
asciilifeform: wait - it's a civil complaint?
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Of course this is the SEC
BingoBoingo: I believe that point had been mentioned here before...
BigBlox: the site says the bets are resolved hours after, if i bet on the 3rd and it was resolved today, then isnt that automatically legit?
kakobrekla: no
BigBlox: BitBet Mod 03-03-14 at 07:38 It has to be a coin, not a scam. Aurora is a scam, not a coin.
ThickAsThieves: Gibson named!
kakobrekla: where
BingoBoingo: ThickAsThieves: As a beneficiary?
ThickAsThieves: you just linked it
ThickAsThieves: no
BingoBoingo: kakobrekla: Your buttcoin link
kakobrekla: i did?
BigBlox: on the comments
BingoBoingo: Link just mentions meeting
ThickAsThieves: i havent parsed whole doc
kakobrekla: oh right, i does.
BingoBoingo: Need to read moar to see if Gibson is beneficiary
kakobrekla: BigBitz EVIDENCE
Duffer1: big one and number two.. anyone taking bets one of those was goat?
BigBlox: what can i provide? my bet went live on the ledger on the 3rd? you guys kept the bet live until today, not sure how that isn't enough
Duffer1: prove you bet before the outcome was known, regardless of when bet closed
mike_c: in that i am feeling generous tonight, and i think he's right:
mike_c: http://i.imgur.com/gssmMI7.png
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Pirateat40 does indeed have an outstanding criminal complaint, but that is related to domestic violence
ThickAsThieves: his middle name is "T"
ThickAsThieves: hehe
kakobrekla: oh, much wow mike_c
mike_c: i know..
mike_c: oh wait! it's wrong
kakobrekla: ;;later tell mircea_popescu get the whip out.
gribble: The operation succeeded.
kakobrekla: is it?
BigBlox: i took this right after it hit: http://imgur.com/mXt6XUa
mike_c: ;;calc (4 + 1) / 2
kakobrekla: ;;later tell mircea_popescu put the whip back in.
gribble: 2.5
gribble: The operation succeeded.
ThickAsThieves: How long have you been married?
BigBlox: other than that i'm not sure what i can give you :/
ThickAsThieves: Oh, man, seven yeras.
mike_c: the line is at the wrong time.
Duffer1: Thickasthieves thanks for that, pretty amazing stuff
Duffer1: the buttcoin article i mea
Duffer1: n
BigBlox: i bet before aurora hit 300
kakobrekla: BigBitz as useful as a default windows xp background
dexX7: fyi: blockchain.info is broken, https://blockchain.info/block-height/288788 misses 225 transactions (ids: http://pastebin.com/gsa0c3iQ)
Duffer1: so Shavers is proceeding without representation?
BigBlox: thanx mike_c
BingoBoingo: Duffer1: Yeah, it seems
mike_c: no, don't thank me
mike_c: i had the wrong time. it actually looks like you were late
asciilifeform: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=502952.0
kakobrekla: dexX7 http://blockr.io/block/info/288788
ozbot: The first line of defence is taken
BigBlox: lol
dexX7: yup, blockr is correct
mike_c: but if you want to try and prove, use those charts on coinmarketcap. from what i can tell, when your bet was registered, aurora was at around 4.5
mike_c: well above litecoin
BigBlox: how about my btc transaction, doesnt that show the time i sent the bet?
BigBlox: or ID
BigBlox: i sent from my wallet
mike_c: well, sent doesn't matter, confirmed matters.

BingoBoingo: lol
Apocalyptic: copumpkin, so much for you anonymity heh
copumpkin: lol
copumpkin: have you tried googling my nick?
copumpkin: I don't try to stay anonymous :)
copumpkin: kind of annoyed that he keeps saying I have his password, although it doesn't seem harmful
BingoBoingo: Well, Moustakiswas the one to Bring up Gibson's last name, and the cubby white kid known as Goat is only refered to as Chaang Noi as far as I have made it so far.
benkay: "If you can adjust the price of bitcoin on your own through some market manipulation after you get them back from Big One, what do Big One's promises about what the price of bitcoin is on Mt. Gox matter?"
copumpkin: lol, pirate doesn't believe for a minute that goat's real name is chaang noi
benkay: "He's returning you bitcoin. He's not returning us dollars."
BingoBoingo: No one believe's Goat's name is Chaang Noi, but he proceeds as certain as does only remembering James of James Gibson

artifexd: "I lent 202000 bitcoins to Mr. Big Man and never got them back" <- LOL
BingoBoingo: I should have got a bigger bottle of Vodka for tonight.
ThickAsThieves: it's almost believable this wasn't technically a ponzi
ThickAsThieves: the wya he tells it
BingoBoingo: ThickAsThieves: He was clever enough to get three quarters of a million BTC under his control. It would make sense that he could try to frame things such that he admits to being a turd, but not that ponzi wop kind of turd
BingoBoingo: Thermos is mentioned on page 39
copumpkin: thermos lol
Apocalyptic: as Thermos with the "r" ?
BingoBoingo: Thermos because when you fuck up that much, you don't get the privilege of presenting yourself as an exemplar of Classic Greek values like sodomy
ThickAsThieves: "I tell you what. I'll give you a very detailed explanation of how the Tor Network works and how Tor mail works, and you can understand what I mean ... It's designed to not be trackable, not be traceable by any form of government."
asciilifeform: lol
BingoBoingo: Page 45 clarifies that Patrick Harnett did indeed have pirate exposure (page meaning sheet and not the quarterleaf the transcriptionist for some god awful reason assented to)
copumpkin: BingoBoingo: full account info is online, btw
copumpkin: so yes we know that patrick had a large account :P
benkay: where is full account info?
BingoBoingo: copumpkin: I know, but the scenario submitted some hours ago where asciilifeform clears the entire court docket because of poor signatures isn't a think we might as well read what is entering the court records as they presently exist
copumpkin: oh
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: either too much vodka, or not enough
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Far from enough to finish these filings
BingoBoingo: The modified anthem is an engineering problem
asciilifeform: sorta like atomic submarine was engineering problem for old jules verne
asciilifeform: i should note that the idea is lifted from neal stephenson's mega-backbreaker 'anathem'
asciilifeform: where people compute using song
BingoBoingo: Yet anothing thing to read
ThickAsThieves: done with doc 1, not a lot to highlight...
BingoBoingo: Fucking Penrose wasting years 2-3 of my undergrad
asciilifeform: if you folks only ever read one book i mentioned, read that one.
BingoBoingo: Fine, I'll pause Land of Lisp and get to it.
asciilifeform: (stephenson's 'anathem' not penrose's rtr)
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [AM1] 1 @ 0.58152002 BTC [-]
Duffer1: mega-backbreaker lol
Duffer1: i loved that book btw ^.^
BingoBoingo: But does Stephenson have beautiful prose like "It is still unresolved in an 'absolute' sense. Kurt Godel and Paul Cohen were able to show that the continuum hypothesis (and also the axiom of choice) is not decidable by the means of standard set theory." Chapter 16 page 5

BingoBoingo: Hella lot of name dropping
ThickAsThieves: i'm currently reading REAMDE actually
benkay: Anathem over Gravity's Rainbow?
asciilifeform: ThickAsThieves: reamde was, imho, total garbage. i was about to lose respect for neal s, but then heard that it was actually written by a chum of his
asciilifeform: and published under his name for some reason
BingoBoingo wishes he learned to beat machines into doing math instead of learning to do math personally
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: piratebay, then 'mathematica'
artifexd: Huh. I enjoyed Reamde. Especially the discussions of in-game economics.
ThickAsThieves: great...
ThickAsThieves: i'm not crazy at least
asciilifeform: it was an ok 'airport detective shooter' but very poor stephenson.
ThickAsThieves: been wondering why the fuck everyone loved the guy so much
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: I actually have a copy of Mathematica from this Dubious "Edx" thing. Apparently it is some sort of mook for pushing software?
asciilifeform: because, afaik, it wasn't stephenson at all.
ThickAsThieves: Anathem ordered
Duffer1: good choice
ThickAsThieves: juggling too many books now...

ThickAsThieves: i just buy The Alchemist for people ;)
Duffer1: I did that with Perdido Street Station
Duffer1: by Mieville
benkay: asciilifeform have you ever read Banks Algebraist?
asciilifeform: benkay: nope

BingoBoingo: If anyone else wants to read RTR I recommend starting with Chapter 29 and then moving to chapter one
Duffer1: rtr?
BingoBoingo: Oh, I prolly should not mention in plaintext what just fell out from between some pages.
BingoBoingo: Duffer1: Penrose's Road to Reality
BingoBoingo: Duffer1: Great math book with some maybe wrong physics editorializing
Duffer1: looks interesting, I have added it to my list
BingoBoingo: I seriously forgot I even had this x that fell out, and kind of forgot what the x was...
ThickAsThieves: "realizing net proceeds of $164,758 from his net sales of 86,202 bitcoins"
ThickAsThieves: ouch

BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Something lighter, more fungible. Book's to good to pull quotes from to use it for that even though the bulk and cover quality are more than adequate.

ThickAsThieves: .
moiety: thanks!
BingoBoingo: moiety: I'm almost offended you have a chat site for Doge (historical translations for that term are unpleasant) but not Altcoin
moiety: um what would you have said if i wanted to set that up?

BingoBoingo: moiety: I would have said yes, seems like a decent investment for a joke coin. Especially if the gambling bots could be revived.
moiety: lol i was about to say i hadnt heard of that one!
moiety: aye but we're just bleeding doge, its not a money maker
moiety: was just what was left over from loq
moiety: well, cc
moiety: kinda went doge because thats what we'd already been asked for ... more than getting btc back
moiety: weirdly
moiety: would you have even wanted invoolved in a chat?!
BingoBoingo: moiety: Maybe if it was Altcoin chat
moiety: i thought you thought i should give up altogether on it
BingoBoingo: Not Doge though
moiety: no i did worry about telling you actually lol
moiety: you havent disowned me though :)
benkay: where is your coinchat located, moiety?
BingoBoingo: moiety: THe chatsite thing really it seems can't work as other than a chumpatron
moiety: https:dogechat.net -- still lots to be done to it though benkay!
moiety: https://dogechat.net lets try that again
moiety: people are being bizarre about my photo already, im taking it off
Apocalyptic: why does that remind me of coinchat by TF ?
moiety: because its his code but heavily tweaked
BingoBoingo: Apocalyptic: TF dumped it onto moiety
moiety: i think i was the only one that couldnt say no
benkay: pay much for it?

mircea_popescu: "Allowing drunk patrons to gamble and serving obviously intoxicated patrons are both illegal under Nevada law. Johnston's lawyer says his client's story is bolstered by surveillance video and eyewitness testimony."
mircea_popescu: this is actually a bit of a problem, people can sit down at their computer drunk as fuck and think hye, gamble my whole wallet on dice!
mircea_popescu: obviously not the dice site's problem, but also kind-of dangerous for the random idiot.
BingoBoingo: And this is why Dice suck.
mircea_popescu: well maybe.
mike_c: because you've never blown money on sports while drunk ;)
mircea_popescu: tbh i think dices have a future, but as backing for other services. they're currently exposed to the general public becaus e whatever, we're in the pdp and vax days over here.

mircea_popescu: A: I'll just know I used it a lot.
mircea_popescu: Q: For what?
mircea_popescu: A: For moving transactions.
mircea_popescu: Q: Meaning for Bitcoin Savings & Trust Investment transactions?
mircea_popescu: A: Yes. And he had a separate account that was a hidden account.
mircea_popescu: Q: A hidden account?
mircea_popescu: A: Yes.
mircea_popescu: Q: What do you mean by that?
mircea_popescu: A: Just an account used for basically his own lending account. They borrow coins real quickly to make cash transactions and stuff.
mircea_popescu: Q: From you?
mircea_popescu: A: Correct.
mircea_popescu: Q: What was his user name on that account?
mircea_popescu: A: I guess Gigavps, but it wasn't on Bitcoin Savings & Trust.
mircea_popescu: Q: Why doesn't it appear in this raw data?
mircea_popescu: A: Because it wasn't on there. It wasn't on this database or on this website. It was tracked through a - what was that - not Sales Force. I can't remember the name of the website. It was something we just worked out together. And it has a lot of his transactions. This account looks mostly like my stuff.

BingoBoingo: Oh, and copumpkin was the doxxed one
mircea_popescu: what, you didn't know his name ?
copumpkin knew his name
mircea_popescu: he fucking sends email with his name on it, what's not to know.
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: I knew it, but not in a court filing.
copumpkin: get with the times
copumpkin: lol, you google my nick my name is the first result
mircea_popescu: i guess.
copumpkin: I'm not exactly secretive
BingoBoingo: I mean Pirateat40 know copumkin's full name, but only James for GigaVPS
mircea_popescu: yes, but then pirate was an idiot.
copumpkin: he's also muddying things by lying
copumpkin: all over the placE :)
mircea_popescu: copumpkin no ?!
copumpkin: believe it or not!
mircea_popescu: i thought fraudsters never lie in court.
mircea_popescu: all this comes as news to me.
copumpkin: there was no way for pirate to think that goat's name is chaang noi :P
BingoBoingo: lol
mircea_popescu: right.
copumpkin: that's just retarded
copumpkin: I was amazed at how much crap he spewed in there
BingoBoingo: Pudgy white kid named Chaang Noi
mircea_popescu: actually... he only came up with chaang noi after his 6 months of laying low for the bst to blow over.
copumpkin: I think he got himself into more trouble there than he would be in if he'd just admitted it
mircea_popescu: well actually... i think in his case the meth defense cuts in
mircea_popescu: (ie, there's an absolute lowest limit a judge'll allow for self-critting idiocy, otherwise anyone from the inner cities would be doing >9k years)
BingoBoingo: Well this is just a civil case
mircea_popescu: this is really the reason prosecutions are so successful in the us. it's not really some sort of nefarious police stat
mircea_popescu: e/nasizm thing as some suggest. it's simply that most defendants are too stupid to live
copumpkin: and the guy is getting the SEC to drive him there in a car cause he doesn't have a car anymore
copumpkin: kind of sad

copumpkin: it doesn't trump that I have to get up for work in a few hours and need my beauty sleep

mircea_popescu: B007 yes, it will continue. not even strictly of habit, as chetty says. take washing : once you get used to your smell when you're clean, you're not likely to stop washing.
mircea_popescu: but if you're used to your smell being filthy, you'll just keep on doing that because... whatever.

mircea_popescu: you gain what's called metacognitive ability.
mircea_popescu: and so you understand both why you had to be beaten, and why you'll be beating the shit off your kids, too. so they don't end up like the retarded us scum.
jurov: well, once you keep yourself clean other people can start to smell horribly (applies to stupidity as well)
mircea_popescu: indeed.
mircea_popescu: which is why society naturally segregates. it's not that the upper class hates the lower class. it's just that the lower class... stinks.

mircea_popescu: chetty most of it. politics is a sexual matter.
midnightmagic: children do better, perform better, respond better, and grow better when they aren't beaten.
mircea_popescu: you mean irl or in dreamland ?
midnightmagic: irl. There is virtually no evidence at all that beating children helps.
midnightmagic: There is virtually all the evidence that says that *not* beating them but maintaining discipline helps.
chetty: depends on the child, some actually need it
mircea_popescu: no, actually, there is an endless record of evidence that it does. what there's no evidence for is that not beating them is sustainable.
mircea_popescu: quite the contrary evidence abounds.
midnightmagic: No, there isn't.
mircea_popescu: right.
midnightmagic: Right.
mircea_popescu: we can move on to discussing how temperatures form a golf club pattern next
mircea_popescu: but as an exercise : consider whether you're randomly lumping together beating children with simple abuse, as a sort of strawman argument.
mircea_popescu: some random drunk randomly hitting some kid is absolutely not within the scope of this discussion.
mircea_popescu: children have to be beaten systematically, in which case most don't actually even need pyshical contact.
midnightmagic: I understand what you mean. Virtually all infant and child development research disagrees with you.
mircea_popescu: virtually all data fugded by post 1950 us pseudoscience on the topic says random stupid shit.
mircea_popescu: it's about as good as us epidemiological data, that crap.
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [NEOBEE] 60 @ 0.00385001 = 0.231 BTC [-] {2}
mircea_popescu: well, either that or magically all kids suddenly need ritalin.
midnightmagic: No, ritalin is over-prescribed. That's evil on its own.
mircea_popescu: but it is over prescrived on the basis of " virtually all infant and child development research"
mircea_popescu: the same pseudoscientific process created both notions.
midnightmagic: I'm just saying, as much as it's possible to know such things, physical pain or even physical discomfort versus non-physical discipline tactics: the physical discipline is not as effective.
mircea_popescu: indeed. but do you know why ?
mircea_popescu: because the group that responds to the former well is SELF SELECTED.
midnightmagic: No it's not. Research is not the basis of ritalin over-prescription. In fact the research states that it is over-prescribed.
midnightmagic: :)
mircea_popescu: ie, theyre the smarter kids anwyay.
mircea_popescu: problem is the entire system collapses once kids know nobody can ever get beaten.
mircea_popescu: much like the us nuclear weapons, which the us refuses to declare will never be used.
chetty: fear is a wonderful motivation
midnightmagic: fear is not the most effective motivation. fear is not a direct motivator, it is a motivator to game the cease of fear.
mircea_popescu: basically you're externalising a cost. when "kids get beaten" subset A1 gets actually beaten and subset A2 learns from their experience.
mircea_popescu: you then run studies showing that A2 responds better than A1
mircea_popescu: once "kids don't get beaten" everyone's ~A2.
midnightmagic: That is fundamental study design. They don't make those kinds of selection bias mistakes in the research on which consensus is formed.
mircea_popescu: midnightmagic only in uncontrolled environments. in controlled environments, fear is a motivator exactly for education.
midnightmagic: Else someone else trying to make a name for themselves comes along and destroys it.
mircea_popescu: it's how the child brain works, for this purpose.
mircea_popescu: midnightmagic nobody is going t omake a name for themselves in the current us showing that not beating kids is a wrong thing.
midnightmagic: Yeeaaahh.. no. Sure it's a motivator. I'm just saying it's not the most effective.
mircea_popescu: it's not the most effective huh ?
mircea_popescu: it's the one to which kids can pose no resistence.
midnightmagic: I would say about half or more of the US actually agrees with you that beating children is the best way.
mircea_popescu: it's ultimate, not effectual.
mircea_popescu: it presents guarantees of success.
mircea_popescu: midnightmagic yes, but not the 14% aspirational crowd that "makes" names
midnightmagic: Anyway, just pointing it out. If you have access to a research institute with fulltext, you should check it out. It's really fascinating and, for me at least, counter-intuitive.
mircea_popescu: yeah, i think the most we can arrive to is stating the respective positions.
midnightmagic: Here, yeah for sure.
chetty: no 'academic' would admit things like that, anymore than admit global warming is off. the wouldn't get their grants.
mircea_popescu: chetty presumably the free market still exists in the us, both financially and with regard to ideas, so such an academic would "make a name for himself"
mircea_popescu: somehow.

assbot: [HAVELOCK] [RENT] 39 @ 0.0055 = 0.2145 BTC
mircea_popescu: this does not look toogood.
kakobrekla: they had an orphan in the list instead of the real block
kakobrekla: cause they were doing upgrades
kakobrekla: and were down for a bit
kakobrekla: and that happend.
dexX7: true, people were complaining about strange behavior for a few days now
dexX7: oh really? but the blockhash etc. was correct?
mircea_popescu: ah
mircea_popescu: ok than
dexX7: well, good then that it's known
kakobrekla: well i dunno, thats the word i got and i dont think its made up
kakobrekla: except if this is a different thing.
mircea_popescu: dexX7 wait, what blockhash ?
mircea_popescu: you mean the hash of the block as reported then matches the hash as reported now ?!
dexX7: there is this overview for example: https://blockchain.info/block-index/472689/000000000000000020cc76f78a24a6bc1c6d55e5514ee9b900ba08b3f97bc4a6
kakobrekla: anyway, whatever it is its blockchain.info related, not bitcoin
dexX7: and everything was correct except the number of transactions + the missing ones were indeed not listed
mircea_popescu: dexX7 the logic here is as follows :
mircea_popescu: the validity of a block is not established until later. which is what orphans and chain reorgs are.
mircea_popescu: if a service like blockchain.info goes down (ie, stops listening to the chain) it may end up with the impression a meanwhile discarded block is still valid
mircea_popescu: this would necessarily result in them listing a different set of txns from the actual set as found on the actual chain
dexX7: a discarded block would have another hash
mircea_popescu: which'd be caught up once it reorgs
mircea_popescu: but yes, said block would have to have its own hash
mircea_popescu: so did it not ?
mircea_popescu: cause if it did not then the orphan theory is blown.
dexX7: the hash and merkleroot was the same
mircea_popescu: well then i suppose you'd better blog about it, or post or somthing.
mircea_popescu: (i don't keep much of an eye on blockchain.info since there exists blockr)
mircea_popescu: kakobrekla: thats what you get when retarded webdevs make exchanges, for the seventy fifth time << mpoe-pr sez https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=290799.msg4924847#msg4924847 but retards know better. as per usual.
mircea_popescu: re smickles : fwiw i knew he wasn't in vegas too.
dexX7: maybe blockchain receives the complete blocks from it's backend in some way and had a small blackout while post-processing and adding the txs to their db ... well, who knows. they seem to be aware though.
kakobrekla: afaik the txes listed there were from an orphan
mircea_popescu: dexX7 maybe, let cary explain it.
mircea_popescu: so far, the "orphan" theory has a prblm.
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 4050 @ 0.0008336 = 3.3761 BTC [-]
kakobrekla: i havent checked anything but whats the problem
mircea_popescu: kakobrekla that if they had an orphan it would show its own hash and root, not the correct block's.
mircea_popescu: if you go "block 200344, here's the hash (from block 200344') and here's the txn, from block 200344" you got a problem
kakobrekla: not necessarily, you dont know what the bug was
dexX7: there is no orphaned block listed for 288788, but i only have blockchain.info as source
mircea_popescu: kakobrekla which is why i say let cary explain it, how the fuck would we know.
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo did it actually say "Michael Marquardt" or theymos or what ?

mircea_popescu: fucking bs impossible to grep
chetty: just Theymos I think
kakobrekla: two block appeared with same blockheight on blockchain info
kakobrekla: they had a fail and had to manually fix it thats why its not in the standard orphaned blocks page
kakobrekla: nothing to the story, move along.
mircea_popescu: same blockheight, same hash, diff txn set ?
kakobrekla: YES
mircea_popescu: some fail.
dexX7: but there was only one block in the network and two on blockchain.info due to the fail, right?
kakobrekla: afaik no
kakobrekla: 2 blocks on the network
kakobrekla: one is gone from bc records
mircea_popescu: so was this an evil block in some sense ?
kakobrekla: in the sense any other orphan would be an evil block to bc.info at the time

The “agenda” behind Bitcoin, if there is any, cannot stay in the shadow if Bitcoin is to become a mainstream alternative currency, a challenge to the world’s monetary status quo.
