mircea_popescu: "This is how the max block size will be increased, hopefully with the same 2-year delay. By the time the change actually happens, everyone will be using a client with the new rules because that's the only type of client that will have been advertised on bitcoin.org and elsewhere for 2+ years. You'd have to go massively out of your way to download a version without the new rules."
mircea_popescu: derp.
mircea_popescu: the fake bitcoin foundation is going to make it for two years ? bwahahaha gimme a break.
mircea_popescu: Gavin educates, make his points and tries convince community without antagonizing anyone. Popescu is probably the biggest jerk in the community, and his flock are such a dickheads that I'd be happy to see them using separate chain just so they can circlejerk and pretend they are the kings of the crypto-word in their own sandbox. Anything they write is so repugnant, that it's just impossible to argue with them. It's fun
mircea_popescu: ny how they define "THE community" linking between blogs of handful of people.
mircea_popescu: dude, reddit really likes being educated, provided the "education" in question consists of telling them how great and important they are.
mircea_popescu: "However, I also expect Bitcoin to become a) more forgetful and think that b), there could be a systems that puts the burden of validating a transaction on the sender of the transaction instead of the network. So that maybe, maybe, in the more distant future, all that needs to be kept of the decentralized blockchain are the headers, which is less than a CD-ROM full of data for 100years."
mircea_popescu: :D
mircea_popescu: ahh all this exposure to that other community.

adlai: (directed by m night shamalayan)
mircea_popescu: "Dude that runs Mpex is a crazy narcissist that happened to get rich (if he cashed out) from being an early adopter. I think the MPEX buy-in was 10k coins just for a seat at the table even after the price hit $30. He also just consented to a $50k fine from the SEC for selling unregistered securities."
mircea_popescu: o.O

decimation: Vegemite (/ˈvɛdʒɨmaɪt/ VEJ-ə-myt)[2][3] is a dark brown Australian food paste made from leftover brewers' yeast extract with various vegetable and spice additives developed by Cyril P. Callister in Melbourne, Victoria, in 1922.[4] A popular spread for sandwiches, toast, crumpets and cracker biscuits as well as a filling for pastries, Vegemite is similar to British, New Zealand and South African Marmite, Australian Promite,

People will immediately cut out the middle man if it becomes less expensive, and its a bit of a race to the bottom as people compete in the space for the best rates, quickest conversion and most apis."

I would project all of my self-hatred onto this woman so I could avoid actually working on m

mircea_popescu: asciilifeform here's one for you : suppose the stavka website sported a "Afghanistani cock -> Russian eager asshole plox ty. We love real men, we're all transvestitties over here!"
mircea_popescu: what does kruschev say ? :D
davout: kakobrekla: btw if you ever change your mind about documenting that optical device you mentioned earlier, a happy would be me
mircea_popescu: better yet manufacture & sell it ? :D
jurov: the serial cable with buffer would suffice for a start
davout: mircea_popescu: if i don't know how it works and how i take it apart i ain't buying it :D
mircea_popescu: yeah obv. just, imo better economics all around once that's on the table.
davout: jurov: i'm trying to figure out exactly what the desirable properties of such an apparatus are
mircea_popescu: of airgaps ?
davout: mircea_popescu: yeah, no argument here, does it come with t-shirts?
mircea_popescu: hopefully lol
davout: yeah, well the questions i'm thinking about are
jurov: davout i assume it has a display and "ack" button that transmits the message, and nak button
davout: should you be able to log what goes through the airgap somehow?
davout: how do you ensure what goes in on one side of the airgap is what goes out?
mircea_popescu: well ideally by keeping the pieces simple.
kakobrekla: i call it 'the gaper' as a tribute to ass gapes.
mircea_popescu: lol
mircea_popescu: also, if it has a display, that's your auditor
davout: jurov: yeah, that's the manual case, but you might want to design an automated airgap
mircea_popescu: no lma
mircea_popescu: wtf is wrong with you ?
jurov: lolwut?
davout: wat
mircea_popescu: automated airgap = turning around 360 degrees ?
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 8250 @ 0.00053717 = 4.4317 BTC [-] {2}
kakobrekla: 720 actually.
mircea_popescu: let's argue about it.
davout: wondering about what makes sense and what doesn't here
jurov: what's the problem with manual checks?
mircea_popescu: davout for all you know the internet is already automatically airgapped to all hell.
davout: no probs with manual checks
mircea_popescu: each hop in a traceroute
jurov: so then why you want it to be automatic?
davout: well, maybe there are some use cases where you want a uni-directional airgap
davout: or maybe you want to enforce that only some sort of messages go through
davout: guess that doesn't really count as an airgap if there isn't a manual step
mircea_popescu: like a diode yeah. conceivably. not what an airgap is toh
mircea_popescu: semiconductors aren't insulators.
davout: just don't put an emitter on the airgapped machine, no need for fancy semiconductors :D
mircea_popescu: not what i meant
mircea_popescu: i meant, your directional, or message-aware or otherwise "airgap" is a semiconductor in the flux
mircea_popescu: not an airgap (which is simply an insulator)
davout: we were discussing airgaps earlier, with a good solution being optics, right?
mircea_popescu: right
davout: so if you don't put a light emitter on the airgap machine you necessarily end up with a one-way airgap, right?
davout: that's the case i was thinking about, therefore not seeing a direct link to semi-conductors
mircea_popescu: well in the theoretical sense of your q, yes.
mircea_popescu: a diode is exactly this : current goes one way but not the other.
davout: yup, a diode
mircea_popescu: so think of your thing as a meta-diode.
jurov: the airgap isn't about technology, but about being in complete control
mircea_popescu: it doesn't work on electric flux, but "communication" flux
davout: yes
mircea_popescu: a diode, generally speaking, is a semiconductor.
jurov: if you cede control to software then it's not airgap anymore
davout: jurov: yup, no argument here
mircea_popescu: but an airgap is not a semiconductor. the technical argument can be brougth that obviously semiconductors insulate
mircea_popescu: at least some of the time.
mircea_popescu: this is valid, but not what airgap means
davout: more like a 'human cable'
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 37651 @ 0.0005072 = 19.0966 BTC [-] {2}
davout: it's the "The machine handling encryption and decryption on the MPEx side never connects to the Internet. There is no cable." bit that got me thinking about all this

mircea_popescu: kakobrekla: you need to get one of those cardanos. << lol it wouldn't be legal.
thestringpuller: is the cardano technically an airgap?

mircea_popescu: nsparent do you want it? Do you want to know that one of the reasons I am very private about connecting my pen names is because the man who raped me enjoys making fake profiles and friending me every few years, just to get off on sending me a message and getting blocked? Do you want to hear how I shake all over and panic and relive everything he did to me when that happens? Does that do it for you? Is that transparent
mircea_popescu: enough? Do you feel you got your due? That you were able to violate my privacy and dignity enough to feel I'm worthy of ten pathetic dollars? Less than a damned movie and popcorn?"

mircea_popescu: some informative original research, fresh from marquardt : "According to Mike Hearn, Satoshi even planned on creating a reputation system integrated with the Bitcoin client that would use the number of blocks you'd individually solved as part of a system to prevent scammers from creating infinitely many accounts."

mircea_popescu: "Demand for Bitcoin is not inelastic. Raise the price of using Bitcoin enough, and demand will decline. Right now, the primary reason people use Bitcoin is not its security.

In fact, doing so will inevitably cause s

mircea_popescu: Everyone not on Gavin's side on this all act like low / zero fee transactions just disappear into the ether. They most certainly do not. If (when) the average block size exceeds 1MB these lower fee transactions will overrun the entire system. Servers running bitcoind will start swapping to disk instead of using memory. At that point the entire network would go down."

danielpbarron: Basically anyone who doesn't update their software will not be able to see the new blocks. They will be on an old network that would no longer be "bitcoin" - until they updated their software.

mircea_popescu: reminds me of a much older but quite central asciilifeform point : "These fools have been handed a technology so clever, so disruptive and revolutionary, that the rulers of the world would have to fully unmask themselves as ruthless tyrants in order to suppress it, — or give up their thrones on their own free will — if it were used correctly, that is."
mircea_popescu: apparently... it is being used correctly eh.
asciilifeform: ilkka kokkarinen liked to call this concept 'heightening the contradictions.' also known as 'make'em gas you'
mircea_popescu: so far it;'s a lot more predictive-dialectic. "this is what you will say, and this is why you will be saying it, and this is how you'll respond to the previous statement, and this is why you did that, and this is how..."
