PeterL: I have a question about deedbot:
PeterL: Currently it posts the deed text and an address with a transaction at a certain time, is there a way to verify that these go together?
thickasthieves: i think deebot got haxed
PeterL: The spec says to generate an address from hashing the text, is there a way for other people to verify this?
thickasthieves: if i recall they are getting someone else to recode
PeterL: yes, but this is about the spec, not the particular code
thickasthieves: i know nothing of spec
thickasthieves: and i assume it's possible that may change with new version
PeterL: my idea: have the bot add a line of random characters at one end of the text, hash the text in a deterministic way to get a privkey
PeterL: move bitcoins to the address and then move themback out, then publish the text
PeterL: then anybody could hash the text, and see that the first instance of coins moing to the generated address was in that particular block
PeterL: I may be wrong, but I think that is different from what it is currently doing?
punkman: for existing deedbot, the whole bundle goes through sha256, then that hash is manipulated to create a public address
punkman: without creating a private key, so the funds are burned
PeterL: my way would let it stop burning funds?
PeterL: so right now you verify text by hashing directly from the text to an address?
punkman: yes
punkman: I rewrote it slightly different
PeterL: what will your changes do?
punkman: I take the hash of each deed, concatenate those to create the "bundle", then hash the bundle and make a private key out of that
PeterL: then do you retrieve the bitcoins sent?
punkman: maybe, or give people a chance to sweep them
PeterL: so it becomes a race to see who gets there first once the bundle is published?

As partners, they would all be jointly and severally liable for CM's debts, including the 'Bond'. It is therefore possible tha

ben_vulpes: muchly referenced throughout corante. required reading for anyone interested in rocket fuels.

mircea_popescu: i suppose the more kinetic mommentum one can put behind the rocket, the lower total energy needed for a successful launch
mircea_popescu: so there's plenty of very good incentive to use the most energetic reaction possible
nubbins`: mmhmm
mircea_popescu has never dabbled in rocketry, just going by general physics
ben_vulpes: that is indeed the tradeoff.
ben_vulpes: well hang on
ben_vulpes: the tradeoff is that the higher up the ergodic chain you go, the more little things cause your whole stack to go kaboom.
mircea_popescu: course since g is more or less fixed, the benefit of going from 2g to 4g is significantly larger than the benefit of going from 4 to 8
ben_vulpes: i never got a good answer on how much monte carlo work went into the 60's space programs during the design phase and how much was back of the envelope estimating.
mircea_popescu: 0-100
ben_vulpes shrugs
ben_vulpes: i suspect trajectory planning had lots of sims run. fuel combinations, maybe a few.
mircea_popescu: how ? they didn't have good computers in the 50s, they weren't much inclined to use them, etc. im betting they used the artillery method
mircea_popescu: (shoot and observe)
ben_vulpes: c'est possible
ben_vulpes: you can do some amount of trajectory planning by hand, too.
ben_vulpes: low fidelty, but helps with bounds.
mircea_popescu: exactly.
ben_vulpes: "sims"
mircea_popescu: well if you count handiwork then sure.
ben_vulpes: they had plenty of computers back then!
ben_vulpes: in the classic sense of the word, though.
ben_vulpes: if i recall correctly, japan's orbital vehicle got into orbit with no onboard control, just a gravity turn.
chetty: lots of slide rules, actually
