kakobrekla: the whole thing is pretty far out there.
danielpbarron: what happens if one of these things gets included in a block? does a pre 0.6.* node reject the whole block?

danielpbarron: !up Luke-Jr
Luke-Jr: danielpbarron: this OP_RETURN stuff has nothing to do with the consensus system or blocks
Luke-Jr: it's just node policy - what the node in question will choose to relay, mine, etc
Luke-Jr: so ideally it should be determined by each node operator, not a centralised group
kakobrekla: currently if you mine with version x you allow for 80 bytes and with version y 40 ?
Luke-Jr: kakobrekla: I think it's 40 in all released versions
Luke-Jr: 0.10 will allow changing it, at least (I forget if it increased to 80)
Luke-Jr: increased the default*
Luke-Jr: actually, if that pull request is still open, the default must still be 40
kakobrekla: why does the guy in the thread there talk about some 'change'
Luke-Jr: kakobrekla: when OP_RETURN code was initially merged to git, it was 80; it changed to 40 prior to any release
kakobrekla: a
Luke-Jr: so since node operators are lazy and don't set their own policies, it puts a weird centralising pressure to try to make some kind of one-size-fits-all policy. which makes for lots of stupid political arguments
Luke-Jr: so my idea there was to just have the default be some not-totally-absurd random value, so at least people who care about datacarrier support set it themselves
kakobrekla: well if we are shifting the blame we can shift it on the miners for not giving shit and devs for not making it easy
Luke-Jr: it's not a miner-only thing; each node has a policy
Luke-Jr: I'm certainly working on trying to make it easy though - see my CNodePolicy pull request
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 32860 @ 0.00063627 = 20.9078 BTC [+] {2}
Luke-Jr: one of my goals right now is to make it so people can just drop a Python/Ruby/whatever script in their bitcoin directory for their policy
Luke-Jr: without having to hack C++, recompile, or worry about accidentally breaking consensus code
kakobrekla: anyway i dont think most pool ops are capable of making political decisions or code changes
Luke-Jr: well, that's another thing :p
Luke-Jr is also working on taking policy decisions away from pool ops
kakobrekla: and bet on 'wisdom of the crowd' ?
Luke-Jr: well, at the very least, people can outsource their policy to someone other than the pool
Luke-Jr: let anyone run their own policy server, and others can use that
Luke-Jr: no more "I have a good policy idea, but nobody will use it because I have 5 Mh/s"
Luke-Jr: now miners will safely use your policy without losing out on their pooled earnings
kakobrekla: rely tx policies is like you are temporarily covering yourself with a blanket
Luke-Jr: in a centralised world, perhaps
kakobrekla: want 30k bbet addresses to block?
Luke-Jr: ?
Luke-Jr: wtf is bbet and why do I care?
kakobrekla: hehe
kakobrekla: i thought you were blocking gambling stuff ?
Luke-Jr: no
Luke-Jr: just spam
kakobrekla: idk where i got that idea then.
Luke-Jr: trolls like to claim my spamfilter is gambling-related blacklisting or something
Luke-Jr: they miss the fact that Catholics consider gambling moral
Luke-Jr: :p
kakobrekla: yeah but btc doesnt give a fuck about catholics
BingoBoingo: Or that apparently popes are spam too now
kakobrekla: anyway, i would not really give away the addys. not because of the damage you couldnt do but i was saying it to point out its a battle against infinity.
kakobrekla: at some point your rules to save resources will eat up more resources than just eating what comes.
Luke-Jr: kakobrekla: sure, but as long as some spam is easy to pick out, might as well
Luke-Jr: and my point was that the trolls' claim is ridiculous, since I have no incentive to block gambling at all
kakobrekla: yea lets not rehash this or else its gonna end in fuck you.
Luke-Jr: lol
danielpbarron: !down Luke-Jr might as well
decimation: it's amusing to see an argument of the form "I'm doing action X which tends to result in Y, but only trolls would believe that I want the result Y because reason R"

asciilifeform: one might say that they 'won.' likely, naggum became wormfood that much sooner than otherwise could have.
asciilifeform: dan mocsny (discussed on a few occasions, another well-known usenet figure) also had orbiters.

ben_vulpes: asciilifeform: interested in your take on my question
ben_vulpes: *i'm* interested..
asciilifeform: wai wat
asciilifeform: which question
ben_vulpes: what does "bitcoinating" entail?
asciilifeform: i'd say - entails being usable for any application pertaining to bitcoin whatsoever.
asciilifeform: including ones that involve arbitrary walks of blockchain data.
asciilifeform: or crafting of perverse (but relayable) transactions
asciilifeform: etc.
ben_vulpes: asciilifeform: arbitrary walks of blockchain data << i think that i disagree here.
asciilifeform: yes, this means that the traditional bitcoind does not entirely 'bitcoinate.'
ben_vulpes: i'm currently of the opinion that providing a tube through which to suck the blockchain is accetable.
ben_vulpes: querying of arbitrary bitcoin data is beyond bitcoind's remit imho.
asciilifeform: at the very least, one must be able to determine 'balance' of an arbitrary address.
ben_vulpes: open to discussion on the topic!
asciilifeform: or it is unusable for a large number of extremely ordinary things.
ben_vulpes: why is balance enough in that situation? what can you do with balance that you don't in reality need the specific unspent outputs for?
asciilifeform: customary workarounds like importing a private key and then 'losing' it are idiotic.
asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: consider the usual apparatus that wants to know that 'it's been paid' without holding any secrets whatsoever.
ben_vulpes: so watch incoming blocks.
ben_vulpes: one can know an arbitrary address has been paid an amount trivially that way.
asciilifeform: what if 'incoming' happens every four days, when the satellite drifts overhead ?
asciilifeform: classical bitcoind behaves very poorly if the assumption of always-on high speed net connection is violated.
asciilifeform: what if 'incoming' happens every six months, when the mail ships sail in ?
ben_vulpes: then you know the last received block and ideally you have all of the blocks since then and can walk them.
asciilifeform: or when there's a gap in the usg shortwave jammers
ben_vulpes: that's why i'm suggesting that data analysis be not a part of bitcoin.
asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: well in theory, yes. but go and try this exercise with traditional bitcoind.
asciilifeform: analysis not part, sure.
asciilifeform: but all of the necessary 'hooks' should be there.
ben_vulpes: i've used it to watch incoming blocks, but not suffering 6 month discontinuities.
asciilifeform: without having to open up the abdomen, insert them, and re-suture in the future.
ben_vulpes: what actually happens?
cazalla: well, that didn't take long.. bitcoinfoundation.org has redesigned their website yet again
asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: well, in one case (~2? years, not six months) - hard-wedge.
ben_vulpes: ah, surely.
cazalla: looks like they removed the black kid photostock images too, such racists
ben_vulpes: that though is not a function of intermittently walking the recent blocks. function of braindamaged "db" implementation.
cazalla: they've also reattributed what were patrick murck's articles to one jinyoung
ben_vulpes: i'm circling around the notion that all bitcoin should do on the topic is vomit forth blocks on command, referenced by height. perhaps transactions, but i'm not even convinced about that.
asciilifeform: vomit forth blocks on command << let's rephrase.
asciilifeform: say it's 1970 and you just bought a tv set.
asciilifeform: crt.
asciilifeform: if it asks you to set the vertical and horizontal scan frequencies manually, independently...
asciilifeform: every time you use it.
asciilifeform: is it a proper tv ?
asciilifeform: an oscilloscope, maybe. but not tb.
asciilifeform: tv
asciilifeform: blocks get parsed.
asciilifeform: in other words, everything that is a 'timeless' part of bitcoin - i.e. cannot ever change or hardfork - must be a working part of the client.
asciilifeform: because, by definition, there will be no variation in it.
asciilifeform: so there it must sit.
ben_vulpes: i'm not arguing against parsing the blocks. it must verify the chain on download and be able to regurgitate the data on command. i suppose that i'm being too dense to grasp your meaning.
asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: when you said 'vomit forth blocks' - sorta implied that one must delve into the protocol docs to make use of said vomit.
ben_vulpes: ah, forgive me. i mean "blocks" as in relatively easily handled block data. for example, the json that's returned from getblock.
asciilifeform: then sure.
