BingoBoingo: Poettering on Linus: "But more importantly, I'd actually put some blame on a certain circle of folks that play a major role in kernel development, and first and foremost Linus Torvalds himself. By many he is a considered a role model, but he is quite a bad one. If he posts words like "[specific folks] ...should be retroactively aborted. Who the f*ck does idiotic things like that?"

mod6: this qntra.net is p cool. looks good in lynx too.
dub: not sure about the pink
asciilifeform: 'people started collecting Bitcoins to hire a hitman for me' << lulz
BingoBoingo: mod6: Thanks. I'll make sure cazalla sees the praise.
midnightmagic: Linus is a drunk, I don't know why anybody expects anything different from him.
BingoBoingo: midnightmagic: What's wrong with being a drunk? ALso his attidtude gets results.
mod6: BingoBoingo: werd
BingoBoingo: dub: What's pink?
midnightmagic: I don't really care much about his attitude. But his brain is malfunctioning because he is drunk all the time.
midnightmagic: Also his drinking gets in the way of being a functional human.
asciilifeform: herr poettering is quite close to destroying linux as a going concern, imho.
asciilifeform: interesting that one usg mole could achieve this.
BingoBoingo: What is this shit? Did Hemmingway's drinking get in the way? Did Hunter S. Thompson's drinking get in the way? Maybe drinking is what keeps Linus effective in the face of Poetterings?
asciilifeform: a very curious 'effective'
midnightmagic: Other people being able to handle, or not, their drinking has nothing to do with whether Linus can.
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Well, Red Hat gave him the platform. Fedora has close ties with Gnome... Basically one mole and a turdware vendor set up dominoes.
BingoBoingo: midnightmagic: But where is the evidence Linus can't
midnightmagic: BingoBoingo: You mean aside from every major talk he's given in the last X years in front of an audience and bragged about how he got blotto'd the night before?
BingoBoingo: midnightmagic: That isn't ineffective. That's efficiency. Cramming as much living as possible into his time.
midnightmagic: Or do you mean aside from the steep decline in cognition in the last decade or so?
midnightmagic: Drinking until you can't remember is not "living." It is "dying."
BingoBoingo: If you get the success to get a big old role of drink tickets with your invite to speak at an event not using the decreases your compensation. Also drinking to forget clears crud out of the brain.
midnightmagic: I suppose that's so if you think your own body has no value.
BingoBoingo: midnightmagic: My body is a temple. Maybe it is some rural tribal arrangement made of straw held together with Giraffe shit, but god damn it, it is still a temple!
midnightmagic: :)
midnightmagic: <3 giraffes
midnightmagic: You'll have to let me know what trick is required to target the crud and not the good stuff. I would personally like to drink more quebecois beer..
BingoBoingo: If you burn out your body with hard living at 67, maybe you only lose one year at the end to convalescing. If you treat it like some nerd's transformer doll in the packaging and live to 90, that's 2-3 decades of convalescing.
BingoBoingo: midnightmagic> You'll have to let me know what trick is required to target the crud and not the good stuff. I would personally like to drink more quebecois beer.. << Practice. Also hard liquor.

BingoBoingo: Probably?
mircea_popescu: <mod6> this qntra.net is p cool. looks good in lynx too. << it does! <dub> not sure about the pink << that's because of all the gay.
danielpbarron: BingoBoingo, i think it's andresen (with one 's')
mircea_popescu: midnightmagic> Linus is a drunk, I don't know why anybody expects anything different from him. << linus actually has a point.
mircea_popescu: it's all the idiotic faggoty dumbasses with "women's issues" and "being polite" and inane crap like that that are the problem,
mircea_popescu: and roughly speaking the reason the world stinks.
mircea_popescu: <asciilifeform> herr poettering is quite close to destroying linux as a going concern, imho. << no. what he is close to is destroying the notion of "updates" as a going concern. which is a fucking brilliant thing, they should have died ten years ago.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: before you freeze something, first have to make sure it isn't a turd. (unless stool sample...)
mircea_popescu: apparently ##Linux which is fucking weird. i thought linus owned the term linux
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform orly ? is this how the two hotties i had sundaes with earlier were made ?
mircea_popescu: tell you what. do your best, freeze it, see if it survives or dies.
mircea_popescu: that's the model. that's the model that made video gaming a thing, where there was previously no thing.
asciilifeform is not advocating update cycle, believes that anything worth calling 'os' is worth burning in mask ROM
asciilifeform: but burning any extant linux into mask rom - is recipe for tears.
mircea_popescu: so ?
mircea_popescu: tears make the best lube
mircea_popescu: after blood, at any rate.
mircea_popescu: tear avoidance is not a strategy for orgasm finding.
mircea_popescu: in other news, i got a spam comment from "Discount True Religion Canada Online". which seems just about right.
asciilifeform is currently fighting with 'grub2' and desperately wants to see blood
asciilifeform: their blood.
decimation: asciilifeform: I would like someone from 'grub' to explain in what what 'grub2' was an improvement
decimation: it's an order of magnitude more complex to manage for trival benefits

asciilifeform: not afaik

BingoBoingo: !b 4 ✂︎
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform what is this ?!
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: a recent gentoo
mircea_popescu: i live a very sheltered life it seems.
decimation: asciilifeform: well, basically the issue is that no one who wrote the original linux network subsystem apparently never conceived of how to enumerate devices
dub: are you ragin at grub or 'hotplug' or whatever it is
decimation: that-and - lots of hardware makers suck at actually making hardware, and their customers demand a software fix
asciilifeform: decimation: i don't give a damn - it was sane before, and is turd-encrusted now in 100 ways
mircea_popescu: decimation isn't that what the 0 is for ?
decimation: one specific instance I know of - dell reversed the '1 and 2' ethernet ports in the bios
asciilifeform: decimation: so these should be collected and burned.
mircea_popescu: or flashed
asciilifeform: why should my reasonable box suffer?
mircea_popescu: which i guess is burning
decimation: asciilifeform: indeed.
decimation: but the masses instead demand a kernel change
asciilifeform: kernel demands a masses change.
BingoBoingo: At this rate we'll probably see Stanix before Loper
decimation: linux would be 10x the disaster it already is today if linus wasn't in charge
BingoBoingo: That is true
mircea_popescu: quite.
decimation: but I agree that the ethernet enumeration is crazy
decimation: but I also submit it's because the underlying hardware world is crazy
mircea_popescu: "Tolerance is definitely considered a virtue, but it suffers the same sort of dimished expectations forgiveness does."
mircea_popescu: foir the record that piece quoted earlier is incredibly braindamaged.
decimation: heh I thought of your post on forgiveness
decimation: the guy who wrote is obviously fascinated with reactionary thought but is also a liberal jew
mircea_popescu: the guy in charge is roughly in the position of poettering
mircea_popescu: "how to pretend like i'm doing something really important by doing something really really complex, that happens to also be very stupid"
decimation: The most interesting thing about it is the comment section, where Brandon Eich chimed in
mircea_popescu: i have no idea who that is.
decimation: he's the guy that was fired from mozilla for giving money to some anti-gay-marriage group
mircea_popescu: "Northern Irish Protestants and Northern Irish Catholics. Hutus and Tutsis" perhaps the most ignorant piece of drivel ion there. im counting it as two strikes in one at any rate.
mircea_popescu: for the clueless in the audience : the tutsis and the hutus are not different in any way, except the belgian missionarries picked the better looking adolescent boys/girls to "educate" ie, sex up
mircea_popescu: and then held them apart for the rest of the population.
decimation: I think that this guy hangs out with the lesswrong crowd too
mircea_popescu: this has exactly fucking nothing with the policies of religion and collaborationism witrh the invader in ireland.
mircea_popescu: anyway, i keep hoping maybe one days one of these libertards with unwarranted delusions of awareness comes by to peddle his stock of derpage.

mircea_popescu: that slashdot is instructive too. "by SuricouRaven (1897204) on Sunday July 27, 2014 @03:33PM (#47544763) His manner is coarse, but you must admit that he's gotten the job done. Linux advances on schedule, patches get incorporated, code gets tested, and all proceeds smoothly."

decimation: Deep in the comments: "Friend of mine was a mid level product manager on Firefox. What she told me is that Eich’s dismissal was entirely due to politics. Specifically, Mozilla is this interesting hybrid organization that relies on it’s global open source community in order to Get Stuff Done, and they couldn’t risk alienating all the volunteers and contributors who make Mozilla possible."
mircea_popescu: this is exactly the fucking problem. libtards don't want to live in a country that works, they want to live in a country run by obama.

mircea_popescu: and the problem is, not enough heads on pikes around the lord's castle.

mircea_popescu: yeah.

The20YearIRCloud: i figure it'll all come around eventually and they'll figure out what's going on
mircea_popescu: yeah. except with liberal beatings it's come about tomorrow.
mircea_popescu: AND there'd be fewer people around.
mircea_popescu: the absolute win-win scenario.
The20YearIRCloud: if it'd be legal
decimation: as I recall Mr. Yarvin quoted Lord Cromer as saying that he reckoned he could effectively rule egypt if he could publicly hang one egyptian of his choosing per year
The20YearIRCloud: my only kind of happiness comes in the liberal douches going through really bad parts of town with 'oppressed people' to only find out the 'oppressed' hate them and steal/rob/rape
The20YearIRCloud: Not that I wish evil in liberals (They're people too), but their mindset sponsors alot of really awful things
mircea_popescu: i guess since legal matters so much all planes sohuld be equipped with a congressman the way old ships were equipped with a priest
mircea_popescu: if the worst comes to worst, he can just make whatever disaster illegal temporarily.
The20YearIRCloud: lol
thestringpuller: bad parts of town are dope though
thestringpuller: especially when you find 2-3 hard working hood rats.
The20YearIRCloud: I'm sure they're there, the problem i have is that those places are such cesspools because of liberal ideology
The20YearIRCloud: My county is 80%+ right-wing, and we don't have those kinds of places
mircea_popescu: i dunno, i'm kinda zone blind, i tend to have more fun in the "bad" parts of town
The20YearIRCloud: our 'bad parts' (of columbus) have crime rates 60-100 times higher than those areas outside of them
decimation: "For example, to run Egypt - a country of 10 million people, then - Cromer had about 1000 British civil servants. If you count all the Western diplomats, development experts, NGOistas, and the like, for whom the present parlous state of Egypt provides employment, how many do you get? A lot more than 1 per 10,000 Egyptians, I suspect. How many Westerners are employed in bandaging and rebandaging the permanent ulcer of Africa? Um, a

The20YearIRCloud: ah
decimation: and so there you go - how would 10,000 poetterings continue to "code" if linus could execute them?
mircea_popescu: decimation the comparison is really unfair. the 1000 people had penicillin. today's africans have the internet.
asciilifeform: all planes sohuld be equipped with a congressman << lol, korean air lines 007.
mircea_popescu: and the point isn't to execute 10k derps. to make such a claim is to bestow qualities upon them they never have nor will ever have.
mircea_popescu: the point is to execute one, to give the remaining 9999 some good role models for their life, and the limits and structure they desperately need.
decimation: that's what I was about to write :)
decimation: hang one, educate 1000
mircea_popescu: every derp derping on "social media" about the libtard themes is really a very badly brought up preteen crying for help.
thestringpuller: The20YearIRCloud: those places are such cesspools because of liberal ideology << some of them are created through the antithesis of that. like the remnants of slavery/apartheid/segregation etc.
mircea_popescu: so, you know, free all the 13 yos trapped in 28 yo bodies.
mircea_popescu: thestringpuller the problem is that "the remants of slavery/apartheid/segregation etc." === "liberal ideology"
thestringpuller: mircea_popescu: two sides of the same coin?
mircea_popescu: pretty much the same side imo.
thestringpuller: welfare and segregation spawn from the same ideology? that seems reasonable tho.
mircea_popescu: perhaps im missing the subtleties.
thestringpuller: as they both affect the same socioeconomic groups for some reason...
mircea_popescu: thestringpuller the shameful secret at the root of all liberal ideology is the plain notion that "those niggers" are not really people, and so must be treated differently from people.
mircea_popescu: specifically, must be treated like animals.
mircea_popescu: if you compare how you treat your pets and how the average liberal intends to treat "those people" you get a scary identity.

thestringpuller: You point out negro's like fried chicken and it's racist. Hmmm...the plot thickens.

mircea_popescu: but black people don't have that. they have no souls, in the libertard's view.

mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo the problem with gavin's idiocy isn't merely that "substantial increasing barrier to entry for operators of full nodes", horrid as that may be.
ben_vulpes: mircea_popescu: it starts with
ben_vulpes: "The dream is to see Bitcoin mainstream.
ben_vulpes: "
mircea_popescu: the problem with gavin's idiocy is that roughly speaking, the square of the block size and the total network hash are on opposite sides of an equality, which describes total network security.
mircea_popescu: so basically, he's proposing significant downstepping of current blockchain security.
mircea_popescu: neither of these are getting merged into bitcoin, whatever gavin says or whatever forks happen.
mircea_popescu: if indeed they're stupid enough to fork it, i will sink their fork on the open market.
mircea_popescu: and if that's the path they wish to use to introduce faux bitcoin-lite for the us domestic market, that's fine, but it won't go over any better than an attempt from scratch.

fluffypony: sgornick: Z
nubbins`: ask me again if/when a standard US keyboard includes a B⃦, ฿, or Ƀ symbol
fluffypony: tbh, Ƀ is a stupid symbol
fluffypony: it looks like a B getting probed analy
fluffypony: which, frankly, is kinda rude since the B didn't do anything to deserve an anal probing
BingoBoingo: No need for a symbol. BTC is fine. People build friendly 'nugh interfaces with BTC
thickasthieves: really i'd rather focus on getting people to quit choosing arbitrary denominations
thickasthieves: like millibit and bitcent
thickasthieves: just uses satoshis dammit

kakobrekla: ah
kakobrekla: sry i misread it first time
nubbins`: why do i read comments on CBC articles?
nubbins`: this is regarding an article about cleaning products not being required to list the specific perfume/scent ingredients: "Printing is cheap these days so no reason not to list all the ingredients in everything"
kakobrekla: sgornick arguing that XBT is better for adoption or whatever the fuck is beyond retarded
thickasthieves: this is all Circle had to say about my inquiry as to my order being cancelled "We may have delayed your transaction due to our fraud prevention monitoring. I apologize for any inconvenience! We should have this issue resolved in the next few days."

nubbins`: i did the full gamut w/ my circle account, A+++ would buy satoshis from again
thickasthieves: it's canceled but that's much too substantive a word for a rep to use
kakobrekla: heh
thickasthieves: delayed permanently instead
nubbins`: also A+++ would cash out via again
thickasthieves: lol at canadians getting through but not usians
nubbins`: :D
nubbins`: with my visa-enabled debit card!
kakobrekla: O_o
nubbins`: also worked w/ my straight-up visa, but dem cash advance fees
ben_vulpes: thickasthieves: the wot begins to bite
thickasthieves: this was my message to Circle, to which i got that form response "I shouldn't complain since the price has gone down anyway, but why didn't this order go through? I just want to know how to avoid the problem in the future.
thickasthieves: Note that it's ironic that I actually made this purchase by mistake because I thought the "Deposit" button meant , yknow, depositing funds, not exchanging currencies. Your system of dollarifying all numbers is obnoxious. Let people type in bitcoin amounts and understand it as a separate currency. You're just confusing things."

dignork: !up dbolser
dbolser: hihi
mats_cd03: the interface is serial but that doesnt really tell me anything
dbolser: working on a counter to the argument that bitcoin price is important if it falls below a certain threshold where the cost of securing the network is 'too high'
bounce: really need to find more ways to recover the secret keys from SIM cards and stick'em in (FOSS-programmed) alternate SIMs that you control
dbolser: I figure cost of securing network is proportional to price
dbolser: but not sure...
dignork: so I invited dbolser here, because we where discussing MV=MC in #bitcoin, but no traction there.
bounce: how hard is it to build a (simple, "feature") phone with fully-controlled firmware including the wireless interface side?
thickasthieves: dbolser while price and mining have a relationship, it is not in sync necessarily
mats_cd03: bounce: not hard. google: osmocombb
mats_cd03: http://bb.osmocom.org/trac/
assbot: OsmocomBB
thickasthieves: itd be impossible to know the plans and behavior of major mining outfits and their coins and costs
thickasthieves: also keep in mind that mining costs as reported by reddit etc, are just a snapshot of what can be seen, there have been private operations implementing their own chips for a while now
dbolser: thickasthieves: I don't argue that the two are related in a complex way, but I wonder if there is a lower bound on price whereby mining 'colapses'
nubbins`: yeah, the only chips you hear about are the ones where the makers wanted to vacuum up that sweet sweet "investor" money
dbolser: or is a low price not worth attacking?
thickasthieves: bitcoin doesnt care
thickasthieves: it invites all attacks
thickasthieves: but you only get one chance
dbolser: that's beside the point
dbolser: if price goes to 1 cent per 10 BTC (lets say), is there any 'value' in mining?
thickasthieves: the problem i have with the point is it acts like price is a driver of anything but speculation
dbolser: ing?
thickasthieves: mining is more likely to affect price than the reverse imo
mats_cd03: the infinite money machine distorts proper analysis of these things
bounce: so easiest there would be to put a good push behind supporting more phones (like some nokia models from back when they were respectable)
thickasthieves: price isnt a force, it is a measurement
thickasthieves: i think...
dbolser: so, hypothetically, does bitcoin ever die?
dbolser: is there a set of functions it performs as cost enters certain ranges?
ben_vulpes: wrong channel, dbolser
ben_vulpes: :P
ben_vulpes: can you clarify the functions question?
dbolser: ben_vulpes: yeah, I'm vague there too... like if the price stays really low, it's still a tool for international trade
dbolser: if price gets higher, is it a store of value?
dbolser: I was thinking something along those lines
dbolser: seems the higher the price, the bigger the buzz, the wider the application
ben_vulpes: it's always a store of value, and it's always a method of transacting value.
dbolser: perhaps I need to study alt-coin failure modes
dbolser: yeah
ben_vulpes: the interesting thing is what happens to modern governments that run on printing money.
dignork: dbolser: re alt-coins << there may be a lot of failure modes, but here is a good general explanation: http://nakamotoinstitute.org/mempool/the-problem-with-altcoins/
assbot: The Problem with Altcoins | Satoshi Nakamoto Institute
thickasthieves: the function is that bitcoin is designed to be antifragile, so each of it's properties work to correct and balance the others
thickasthieves: re remittance, that is one aspect where price (more specifically, market cap) matters
ben_vulpes: thickasthieves: how does market cap affect remittance?
thickasthieves: bitcoin is backed by bagholders, so if you wanna be able to transact AND cash out large amounts, you need large price
ben_vulpes: hm
thickasthieves: this is also why you get guys talking about "closing the loop"
thickasthieves: which is not totally possible, but probably the natural point bitcoin trends towards
thickasthieves: closing the loop is probably an anti-goal because changing the value of bitcoin dramatically would also change the costs of goods dramatically

nubbins`: thickasthieves casascius coins are essentially a closed loop, albeit not a very good example
thickasthieves: i'm not sure we mean the same thing
dignork: thickasthieves: in case of wide usage of btc, remittance as business will disappear
thickasthieves: by closed loop i mean getting people to transact in bitcoin and not convert to fiat
thickasthieves: vendors>business>consumer>employer>
thickasthieves: dignork i assume you mean be taken over by crypto, not disappear
nubbins`: oh sure, yeah
nubbins`: totally different things
los_pantalones: thickasthieves why do ppl think you should exchange a provably finite asset for something like a ham sandwich
thickasthieves: Well i think businesses will still provide the service
dignork: thickasthieves: if it's trivial to find buyer here, and seller there, it won't be remittance anymore, just exchage fees on both sides of trade
los_pantalones: ever seen someone exchange .00001% of their home for a piece of pie ?
thickasthieves: people still wanna 'bank' of asome sort
thickasthieves: that wont go away
thickasthieves: dignork thats what remittance is, paying a fee to transport money via a 3rd party
thickasthieves: i'm saying the 3rd party will continue to exist
thickasthieves: it will just look different
thickasthieves: remit companies might also be more general escrow agencies
thickasthieves: maybe even contract facilitators/arbiters
thickasthieves: maybe get into insurance
thickasthieves: etc
thickasthieves: just because bitcoin lets people do things for themselves doesnt mean that all of sudden people will start doing things for themselves
PeterL: http://blog.btcscoop.com/use-code-xbt-not-btc-for-bitcoins/ and yes I see the irony of posting this on a website starting with btc

thickasthieves: no.
thickasthieves: ;;8ball should we switch to XBT?
gribble: The answer is certainly yes.
thickasthieves: you muthfukah!
thickasthieves: first time gribble failed me
dignork: thickasthieves: in "send money home" scenario, no arbitrage/insurance is required, unless we are talking about hedging volatility risk. Any btc buyer or seller migh assume himself in "remittance business", which means unrestricted lower bound for margin. that's why i think remittance as a business will disappear. It will just turn into a corner case of btc<->whatever trade.
PeterL: you don't need remittances anymore, just a local trader at each end to convert to/from local currency
PeterL: didn't MP once refer to local currency as "food vouchers"?
PeterL: maybe that is why USgov wants the price low, so it is harder to move large quantities of money outside their system without permission?
dignork: PeterL | you don't need remittances anymore << in theory you are right, but for now you have whopping 5 buyers listed on localbitcoins in Mexico. Seems we are not there yet.
PeterL: yeah, not yet, but certainly moving that direction
kakobrekla: no i think we should call it YBT
thickasthieves: those individuals are still remittance businesses
kakobrekla: Y Y? Y not?
thickasthieves: i think we should rename all currencies to add C
thickasthieves: dollarcoin
kakobrekla: CYBT then
thickasthieves: poundcoin
thickasthieves: USDC
thickasthieves: EURC
thickasthieves: it's teh rule!
thickasthieves: wtf is the X bs
PeterL: thickasthieves: yes, but it can be a different individual at each end of the transfer, unlike now where you have the same company at both ends
thickasthieves: you dont though
PeterL: no?
thickasthieves: the abstracted "company" is the local bank
thickasthieves: two different ones on each end
chetty: I wouldnt go too much by localbitcoins listings, plenty of places trading in btc not listed
bounce: what, you don't know? currency codes use the iso3166 two letter country code plus one letter for the currency. so BTC is really "bhutan coin". exceptions are the X codes, XAU, XPT, XAG and so on.
kakobrekla: i guess iso3166 can now ask bitcoin if it can reform

mircea_popescu: guruvan what did it do this time ?
guruvan scrolls back down to the present

nubbins`: there's an off-chance it'll still be in a sort facility somewhere.
mircea_popescu: thickasthieves: do ebay servers get hacked when they discover coupon counterfeiters? << no, because ebay servers are already hacked by design, because they use the "proper" software as indicated.
guruvan: thestringpuller: no - but I've been around here a long while - just not much in here for a while
mircea_popescu: bounce: huh, sneaky circular argument there. usg says hoster Ts&Cs allowed for monitoring to no privacy for you! -- but how'd they know what server to monitor, hm? tor ought to've made it unfindable. << they "just knew" heh.
mircea_popescu: but really, this silkroad thing is becoming a major liability for the usg, after having actually crossed the line from gain to liability sometime in spring.
nubbins`: the FBI "just knew" in the sense that an NSA agent walked into their office and said "hey, check out this URL!"
mircea_popescu: making it n-0, retroactively. THEY HAVE YET TO ACTUALLY SCORE ONCE! ☟︎

mircea_popescu: bounce depending on one's age, i wouldn't put much stock in that. i suppose septuagenarians have good cause to be disinterested on these grounds.
mircea_popescu: but anyone else... who cares if the bill comes due just as you're due for pension payments? hm ?
bounce: also depends on your perception. this is perhaps the more cogent point. who's going to be right? well... if we're lucky and they're not a lot of the cogs in the usg are going to feel mightily blindsided.
mircea_popescu: every current usg employee is in direct danger of starvation, once they reach old age. better make some good friends and suck up to the fambly, because the usg won't be here to pick up their tabs.
mircea_popescu: bounce not so.

Azelphur: It shouldn't be*
bounce: perhaps depends on a gpg agent that isn't running or perhaps doesn't have the key loaded
Azelphur: bounce: that's possible, the key does require a passphrase
mircea_popescu: you see why this is not the sort of thing another could help with Azelphur. check the secret keyring ? maybe is there a pinentry involved that fails silently ?

thickasthieves: rise!
Daniel_Krawisz: So I'm curious as to why mircea_popescu has been saying that an increased block size is a security problem. What's the issue here? (sorry, I suck at spelling)
danielpbarron: Daniel_Krawisz, bigger blocks, fewer full nodes, less decentralizedness
thickasthieves: it's ever-increasing, increased the burden on nodes, and places pressure on the one leg of bitcoin that isnt properly compensated
Daniel_Krawisz: Oh, ok. Yeah, something needs to be done about that but I think it's a solvable problem.
thickasthieves: i'm having no part in a fork tho
thickasthieves: we built this city on rock n roll
Daniel_Krawisz: Me neither. I would rather see the block size go up. If that creates a crisis of not enough full notes, then people are going to do something about that pretty quick I'd guess.
