asciilifeform: moiety: the emulator is a very ragged toy. the actual gadget works considerably better.
asciilifeform: at some point i'll get around to selling the actual microwriter
asciilifeform: (not much use for it here)

BingoBoingo: bitcoinpete: Thanks. Got to beat Coindesk to the aggragators
BingoBoingo: moiety: I'm guessing you aren't familiar serious humidity.
bitcoinpete: np
BingoBoingo: bitcoinpete: You seem to have the stronger social media presence
asciilifeform: taking joy in having 'strong social media presence' would be rather like rejoicing in living next to a swamp, to have 'strong mosquito presence'
bitcoinpete: BingoBoingo: lol seem? i'm happy to help :)
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: It isn't that there is benefit derived from it. It is that when we can beat the Coindesks to the aggregators, it injures them in ways only they can rationalize.
BingoBoingo: bitcoinpete: Well, I'm gifting you that Canadian modesty.
bitcoinpete: asciilifeform: there's most certainly benefit derived from twitter and west nile isn't the half of it
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: the buggers' traditional defense is to pretend that the event was a non-event - or, if this is impractical, to continue living in an imaginary world where they 'scooped' the story first, and all of the 'unsanctioned' discussion never happened. ☟︎☟︎☟︎☟︎☟︎☟︎☟︎☟︎☟︎☟︎☟︎☟︎☟︎☟︎☟︎☟︎☟︎☟︎☟︎☟︎
bitcoinpete: not saying it's much of a benefit… just non-zero
asciilifeform: think back to the purpose of the phoundation.
asciilifeform: or the myriad 'tame' seekoority blogs, which studiously avoid mention of nsa, etc.
moiety: BingoBoingo: not really, I don't think thailand for a fortnight, hopping from aircon to aircon counts lol
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: I remember that time quite a while back when, maybe it was accident on your part, but you loosened the anus's of the various Apple Occultists with your hypercard post.
BingoBoingo realized this week he had indeed run into Loper well before -assets
BingoBoingo: Digging through archives I found hypercard setup VM exactly as asciilifeform described
moiety: asciilifeform: what should a microwriter cost now (approx)?
asciilifeform: moiety: no clue. got mine on ebay a few yrs back for about 100 usd
asciilifeform: moiety: it's rare enough that there is no ready source for it
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: loosened the anus's of the various Apple Occultists << that might've been 'non-apple's mistake'
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Well, the VM's name was one of the library school classes, so maybe I did the loosening during a presentation in a technology class.
moiety: you get modern usb ones :o i think the older ones look nicer though.definitely one for the collection
BingoBoingo: This was a crowd of the sort where "technology"=="social media"

fluffypony: davout: how's the rebranding goign?
fluffypony: *going
davout: it's scheduled, the UI designer is going crazy :D
Naphex: what's he going crazy about?
Naphex: just change Bitcoin-Central to Paymium on front page, and you're about done :P
davout: too easy
davout: since we're launching merchant services at about the same time and that we're going to have a single landing page it needs some lifting
Naphex: you're doing merchant services / exchange under the same platform?
Naphex: won't it clutter up with all the merchant features?
davout: you mean on the front page ?
Naphex: no i mean just in general, the code the platform etc
Naphex: i mean we're working on finalizing the payment/merchant gateway as well. but we're building them as separate projects to avoid clutter
Naphex: and unifing the wallets so they can interlink
davout: the interlink code could count as clutter as well
Naphex: then BTCXPay for payments / BTXChange for trading/exchanging
Naphex: well interlink code is needed anyway, for wallet apps and the rest
davout: you don't do the exchanging ?
Naphex: so atleast they share same wallet/account
davout: i mean can't a merchant request to be paid 12.34 EUR and receive exactly that ?
Naphex: he can
Naphex: but the merchant services will be a whole differnt app with merchant in mind, and all the features that come with merchant gateways
davout: i like the idea of having a single app to maintain
Naphex: i think exchange / payment services are too big fields too keep under same app
davout: also, a lot of code to check for incoming payments and track them properly is shared
davout: the money flows are managed in a unified process
Naphex: probably but that opens a whole lot of room, for vulnerabilities, bugs, spaghetti code, maintainance problems
Naphex: and a lot of clutter in a big app
xmj: mm.
xmj: Naphex: what language do you write that one in?
Naphex: since merchant are going too need merchant reports, invoice listings, button generators, cart generators, apis and plugins to intergrate in popular ecommerce platforms
davout: Naphex: i don't think splitting apps would make it less vulnerable, on the contrary, having only one attack surface is easier to manage
Naphex: xmj: nowadays i usually write standalone java for backends
davout: for the
fluffypony: xmj: Naphex has been plugged directly into his server banks for a while now
fluffypony: so he just thinks in code
Naphex: thats correct ;]
fluffypony: I hear he's switching to Swift after watching the Apple demo on Monday
davout: api for example, we leverage a lot of code that already exists, the extra part is a couple of models and their business logic, the e-commerce plugins are separate ofc
xmj: Naphex: Java seems a popular choice for financial transaction backends
xmj: Naphex: we've developed a p2p credit/lending site, our bank's API connectors are in java.
Naphex: xmj: its pretty lean, fast, threading is a dream and NIO is great and fast and easy to implement
xmj: NIO ?
xmj: non-blocking IO ?
Naphex: then you got really good tools, and profilers and debuggers
Naphex: xmj: yes
Naphex: but i don't use servlets or other middleware, so there's that.
xmj: ah
xmj: matter of taste i guess.
Naphex: speed
xmj: I really really like Python, because it's legible and fast to write prototypes in.
xmj: By the time you have serious scaling issues, you can always write things in Cython.
Naphex: python's not bad. twisted python is perty okay
xmj: or C. or C++.
Naphex: yep
xmj: (though, I can't write C. yet.)
Naphex: i do the same in jave, write JNI if there are bottlenecks or too slow performing native functions
Naphex: but rarely i have to do that for backends, as in hardware nowadays is too fast to care
Naphex: but i have done a lot of that for embedded and it worked out very nice
xmj: cool
Naphex: <+davout> Naphex: i don't think splitting apps would make it less vulnerable, on the contrary, having only one attack surface is easier to manage <<
Naphex: I like my stuff modular, i split a big app into scalable services
Naphex: then interlink
xmj: benefit: you can reuse those parts more easily across customers.
Naphex: now i know services are secure and they stay clean and sharp to the point code
xmj: no need to reinvent wheels if you already have a stack of them.
Naphex: yep
Naphex: so i can have wallet nodes, exchange nodes (which can be split into INSTRUMENT servers)
davout: Naphex: you're bound to have quite some coupling
Naphex: there is no problem with coupling, nodes come out with coupling since start
davout: howso ?
Naphex: and they can handle their duty, wallet nodes can be used by clients to connect and manage their wallets
Naphex: exchange nodes can be accessed to convert the currency
Naphex: and payment nodes to process payments and get auto notifications from them
Naphex: they come up with servicing in mind, and the same way a client hooks up to them web platforms hook up as well
davout: but do you have a single unified domain model ?
davout: yeah, we have that too, the web interface is a module that hooks into the API
davout: it's not built in to the app
Naphex: see, now will that api do payments processing as well in the same big app?
Naphex: or be split into modular nodes
Naphex: which will interlink
davout: there is a blockchain watching process that notifies the models when it sees an incoming payment
Naphex: i just think one big app to handle wallet api, exchange api, payments api might just be too big
Naphex: and eventually you will have to split it to scale
davout: well, look at the trading for example
davout: you can not horizontally scale it
davout: it *has* to be a sequential queue that's processed FIFO
Naphex: yep
davout: how does having it as a separate thing help ?
Naphex: well, the exchange api will be that sequential queue.
davout: i mean, in my case it's a separate process, but it does however leverage a unique domain model
Naphex: but why does it have to also manage the wallets, and record user transactions, and process payments
Naphex: right?
davout: it needs to record transactions
Naphex: because it handles exchange data, and orders, and order queues, and execution
davout: executions result in writes into your accounting, right?
Naphex: and maybe order rules
Naphex: davout: brb gotta eat, continue afteward if you're still on
davout: sure
Naphex: davout: but an exchange transaction != a bitcoin transaction
Naphex: or an exchange transaction != payment transaction
davout: sure, but they all need to be accounted for
davout: they need to go in the ledger, also these transactions may share properties
davout: a lot of code is common between a bitcoin deposit and an invoice bitcoin payment
davout: for example, the service call "monitor bitcoin address xyz for x days" is common between a deposit address creation, and an invoice creation

dub: which is a change from last time I thought about it
pankkake: do they really allow bitcoin applications, or is it yet another redditation?
davout: pankkake: well, i pointed out the fact that their new policy didn't mean shit taken on its own, however it appears there are some wallets that are back in
davout: such as coinjar

moiety: omg you have to make physical coins fluffy too
fluffypony: heh heh
moiety: i wonder how things would be with bitcoin today if all this time and energy thats been spent on alts had been focussed on btc
fluffypony: the problem is that much of the time and energy has been spent by people that aren't really on "that level", so if they focused on BTC instead we'd just see more shitty copies of exchanges / gambling sites etc.
fluffypony: and about a billion dumb features submitted as pull requests
mircea_popescu: fluffypony, you can't merge ltc with atc, one's scrypt

mircea_popescu: anywyay, i was interrupted in the middle of spamming. let's continue.
mircea_popescu: this is usually the result of mediocre brains strained through the us college system. they end up with the expectation that any conceptual category has a practical counterpart.
mircea_popescu: and so there IS such a thing as "start-ups" in the same sense there actually is a thing called new york.
mircea_popescu: second off, and much more worrisome, the bizarre notion that there's safety in banality, to wit, that one can't fuck up by doing what "everyone" is doing.
mircea_popescu: this is exactly counter to what a startup is even for. this is ibm think.
mircea_popescu: there's simply no way he ends up any other way than bleeding in a ditch somewhere, with a pilum in his penis.
mircea_popescu: oviously in real reality start-ups are not the derps that go to "start-up dinners", but exactly the guys that don't
mircea_popescu: and similarly, start-ups aren't the guys that do what everyone else does, but exactly the guys that don't.
mircea_popescu: ;;later tell bitcoinpete: http://www.wired.co.uk/news/archive/2014-06/03/silk-road-study << this is precisely why they wanted that "murder solicitation" thing in there so bad. and... they got it. because, bitcoin jesuses.

fluffypony: true
fluffypony: despite what u-sage usagi thinks, I'm clearly a shitty scammer

mircea_popescu: princessnell, as in too many duke grads unemployed to the point you get idjits a la tucker max writing "novels" and then moving on to "financial advicering" ?
princessnell: that's the spectacle. then there's the masses of subprime borrowers who went to shit tier law schools and now work as glorified file clerks at an hourly wage.
mircea_popescu: but my point was not about the direct practical application
mircea_popescu: my point is more that if you aspire to not be fucking stupid, pretty much the best avenue in the us colleges today is law.
mircea_popescu: granted this doesn't justify the tuition. but then again i've yet to meet the person that studied law and was worse for the wear for it.
princessnell: why do you think that?
mircea_popescu: which one
princessnell: ah
princessnell: "the best avenue" idk i'm biased but i'd have to go with economics or math or even logic/philosophy
mircea_popescu: there's nobody aliv ein the us qualified to teach philosophy to any degree.
princessnell: "studying the law" here = "memorizing administrative case law"
mircea_popescu: math is a prime tool of making one stupid, even in sane places (such as the soviet union)
mircea_popescu: ya well not that.
princessnell: point is i think on the whole the fields i mentioned equip you with better mental models than most law programs
mircea_popescu: i suppose the start-up approach to studying law in the us is getting a small apt close to the campus of a good law school and fucking all the older profs for free.
mircea_popescu: rent way cheaper than tuition, results way better than degree,
mircea_popescu: more fun all through.
mircea_popescu: well, we may be talking at cross purposes, let me try and model the difference.
princessnell: ha. but then you don't get a sheepskin.
mircea_popescu: suppose there's a land, and under this land water table, and above names of places.
mircea_popescu: how deep to the water table is perhaps what you're discussing, whereas how much water in that spot at all is maybe what i',m saying.

Mats_cd03: imo physics is the most valuable
mircea_popescu: princessnell, it can;t ever be right.
mircea_popescu: Mats_cd03, has a good point, physics i agree is very very close. for exactly the same reason
mircea_popescu: physics can also never be right.

mircea_popescu: bitcoinpete: mike_c: didn't know that about altcoin… i don't know why i thought it was a costlier project << nah, thickasthieves was running lean at the time :D
princessnell: i think that's right but i unfortunately don't think that's the approach that us law schools take. anyways i deal a lot with law through economics so i can have it all.

mircea_popescu: it would help if the people covering the most important thing happening in the world these years would be at leas tconversant in its basicsa
mircea_popescu: mike_c, i guess the sane construction here is they're paying about 100mn to the various manuf etc to make their chips, and they expect to mine 200mn worth of btc
mircea_popescu: seems a scary tight margin put in those terms, but who knows.

mike_c: nothing.
mircea_popescu: this seems to me to fly in the face of the ~fundamental~ point of tangibility
mircea_popescu: granted that the form of it favours your interpretation

danielpbarron: how can you even tell the cake is for a gay wedding? i'm guess it has two groom figurines on the top; is it against the law to have a rule that no cake may have two male figurines on top?

mircea_popescu: which is why all this nonsense is so funny, all the racism involved in the arguments against discrimination.

danielpbarron: nobody is entitled to the service of having a wedding cake made for them

mircea_popescu: your bp is going up over a selective subset of this ?
mike_c: thinking..
mircea_popescu: "behaviour" is a cop out. the tendency is to put meaning into objects, which is a task for they who've hunted snipes successfully.
mike_c: some people "hate americans" and act accordingly. I think this is retarded, but it doesn't upset me. some people "hate homos" and act accordingly, yet this does upset me.
mike_c: perhaps this is inconsistent.
Naphex: well i hate people who hate animals

danielpbarron: <+mike_c> well, relatively serious. is there some other reason you would refuse to use black figurines? << there needn't be any other reason; is it my business or not?
mircea_popescu: it goes much deeper than that mike_c. some years ago, in the days of the johnny cash, trolls burned the flag much to the dismay of the right "silent majority", which was mocked by the progressive left.
mircea_popescu: meanwhile that progressive left has ossified into a "silent majority", and... well... trolls are burning black men much to their display.
mircea_popescu: if this isn't a sad exercise into becoming everything you've hated about the stupidity of your parents
mircea_popescu: i dunno what would be.
mike_c: so what's your point? that I shouldn't care about other people's idiocy? or is it that it isn't stupid to be racist/homophobic.
mircea_popescu: at any raqte, the notion that anyone burned the flag "because they hated america" was so fucking ridiculojus back then
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: You just might win the Halep bet

mike_c: but there often is meaning. flag burning is dumb. but refusing service based on race/gay/sex does have meaning.

BingoBoingo: PUBLIC AUCTION - FORMER NIKE MISSILE LAUNCH SITE
fluffypony: nike missiles???
BingoBoingo: fluffypony: It was a 1950's and 60's concept where incoming bombers would be brought down by short range nuclear missiles
fluffypony: ah, got excited about Nike's diversification program there for a moment
BingoBoingo: "The 14-acre site includes 3 underground concrete bunkers, each approximately 68’ x 76’ and 18’ deep with 10’10”+- ceiling clearance. The 3 bunkers have 9’6” x 53'8” elevator pads which are operational."

assbot: [HAVELOCK] [AM1] 1 @ 0.19300043 BTC [-]
BingoBoingo: Large underground workspace with elevator apparatus capable of lifing vehicles, the industrial uses are endless
mircea_popescu: in an actual country.
mircea_popescu: in the us, the uses are inexistent.
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: It isn't that there is benefit derived from it. It is that when we can beat the Coindesks to the aggregators, it injures them in ways only they can rationalize. << wow that's an unexpected point.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: the buggers' traditional defense is to pretend that the event was a non-event - or, if this is impractical, to continue living in an imaginary world where they 'scooped' the story first, and all of the 'unsanctioned' discussion never happened. << pretty much. a dangerous gambit, of course, as the world also goes about its business scarcely taking notice of their efforts.
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: Also to the CoinDesks, it is the only one.
mircea_popescu: nubbins`: BingoBoingo: i actually had wondered why $15k plus damages -- didn't realize until you pointed out that they didn't touch s.dice << yeah, funny how that worked huh.
mircea_popescu: nubbins`: mp tells the sec to get stuffed, they shrug and then do exactly that << what did you expect'd happen ? a bureaucrat is perhaps the finest detector of who has the bigger stick in existence.
fluffypony: this made me cry with laughter - http://www.reddit.com/r/Bitcoin/comments/27apui/why_i_will_store_on_coinbase/
fluffypony: "I know most of you scoff at the idea of storing BTC on Coinbase, but I am not nearly as technologically inclined as most of you. Each storage suggestion I read looks to me like this:
fluffypony: 1. Download armory and Electrum and run armory from an offline underground bunker.
fluffypony: 2. double encrypt using Eorepadaeuium with 4 USB drives running Linux UEc.3f3.c2q1
fluffypony: 3. backup with Efekjwsf and wefkjlfe + qt and create a public key, private key, and semi-private key.
fluffypony: 4. print private key and public key, but not semi-private key. Laminate printed copies and store in a vault along with 3 of the 4 USB drives. But be sure not to run EFkjlwef foeropwerk.
fluffypony: 5. Use a submarine to bury the vault in the ocean.
fluffypony: 6. A hacker who is %1000 times smarter than you is watching your every move and will steal all your bitcoin if you slip up.
fluffypony: More near computer illiterate people like be are going to be buying BTC, and Coinbase seems like the safer and simpler option."
mircea_popescu: these argentines are a muy festive people.
mircea_popescu: fluffypony, i guess you just explained xapo's vp for asciilifeform too.

mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: You also have to understand. Of the relatively early Bitcoiners MP is practically a saint. << i thought i had a bad reputation.
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: We're going off of actual actions and not Jimmothy and CiuCiu retellings
mircea_popescu: whoa ciuciu
mircea_popescu: i wonder under what name he's back
BingoBoingo: That's the fifty cent question
mircea_popescu: i also wonder how long before i'll be the oldest guy in bitcoin, between people pulling the satoshi melt-in-mists trick on one hand and the 5years up to your room erik trick
mircea_popescu: Vexual:
mircea_popescu: usagi hotwallet method:to a hot array of failing hard disks is added a bitcoin wallet, and all backups. Hotter coffee is added splashwise until the hot wallet becomes cold. << ahahaha SPLASHWISE!
mircea_popescu: that's gotta be a word now.
Naphex: depends on bitcoins growth
Naphex: really
Naphex: the question is, how long before you stop recognizing everyone
Naphex: and its just a sea of scams
Naphex: and scammers
Naphex: going in and out
Naphex: daily
mircea_popescu: that can't happen, i have a whole department working on it.
mircea_popescu: nao if only the sec would be making more definite steps towards halping
Naphex: :))
mircea_popescu: ;;later tell Phinnaeus: I'm curious as to when Micrea had that pic taken where he's in front of the pyramid on a horse. << 2003 iirc.
gribble: The operation succeeded.
BingoBoingo: I thought settling with Erik over GLBSE shennanigans was helping, they have quite the backlog of stuff to catch up on... Gigavps, Thermos, et al..
mircea_popescu: mike_c: asciilifeform: do you know if this is true? "EC-based keys are just as secure as RSA keypairs" << nobody fucking knpows if this is true, this is the mn dollar question in practical cryptography.
mike_c: c'mon, you know ascii knows and just won't tell
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo, im not one to give last night's calves black eyes, but.... as you say, loing backlog.
BingoBoingo: I imagine a cycle stabilizing where MP shames securities scammer, SEC scoops them up months later.
BingoBoingo: Then in about 10 years the "community" notices this is a thing
Naphex: so why not turn that depratment and review into a service
Naphex: and do a bitsec
Naphex: after 1 year sell seals :))
Apocalyptic: "nobody fucking knpows if this is true, this is the mn dollar question in practical cryptography." wait
Naphex: mpsec approved
Apocalyptic: is this the question "is the discrete logarithm problem as hard as the factorization problem" ?
Apocalyptic: cause if so it has been proved afaik
mircea_popescu: not exactly
mircea_popescu: Naphex, i don't really perceive the benefit.
Naphex: same thing only condensed
Naphex: maybe as an experiment, who knows the benefit
mircea_popescu: the problem with commodization is that it destroys quality.
Naphex: picking out the good from the bad should be a skill everyone has, but that ain't gonna happen
mike_c: Apocalyptic: there are also considerations around which curve you use. i believe certain curves are known to be weak.
Apocalyptic: mircea_popescu, how so ?
mircea_popescu: in general the fewer customers you have the better your product can be
Naphex: well you compress it, and let people act based on a rating
Naphex: they can optimize but have errors
Apocalyptic: mike_c, indeed, i'm talking in curves over GF(p), with p prime
Apocalyptic: mircea_popescu, Eric Bach wrote a paper about this
Apocalyptic: Bach proves: 1) If you can compute log. modulo $N$, you can factor $N$ 2) If you can factor $N$ and compute logs modulo each factor, then you can compute logs. modulo $N$
mircea_popescu: Apocalyptic, the question is more subtle than that. perhaps a better rendering would be "which of rsa, ec is more likely to have tiny pores we don't kjnow about"
mircea_popescu: such as a particularly easy to attack space etc.
Apocalyptic: but that's a different question
mircea_popescu: none of these considerations are wide berth issues such as bach's.
mircea_popescu: not that the result is unimportant, obv.

Apocalyptic: mircea, I see, my interpretation of "EC-based keys are just as secure as RSA keypairs" was different
mircea_popescu: Apocalyptic, "in the general case" versus "in any practical case"
Apocalyptic: indeed
fluffypony: diametric: lolwut
fluffypony: "secure"
diametric: fluffypony: yeah. xapo authentication is your email + 4 digit "pin"

diametric: or can i bruteforce this with a python script.
mircea_popescu: easy enough to test
diametric: yep
mircea_popescu: nubbins`: pins & needles now << you are pushing your sacral vertebra into your pudendal nerve
Naphex: Apocalyptic: but isn't ECDH safe from shor's attack?
Naphex: from lets say quantum computers
Naphex: thats why you do ECDH to factorize instead of just EC
Apocalyptic: ECDH isn't of big interest for bitcoin
Naphex: must've missed th epoint
Apocalyptic: ECDH is just a protocol for key exchange
punkman: ECDSA is what btc uses, ECDH is another thing
Apocalyptic: ECDSA is what bitcoin relies on
