asciilifeform would, but has no musical education at all
nubbins`: you actually don't need any to have fun :D
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: After the war I might have to get you a tuba, instrument of kings
nubbins`: i might have to get him a monotron
asciilifeform is one of those people who can easily compose in his head, incl. polyphony, but can't output
nubbins`: that sort of brain is actually made for synths
nubbins`: as long as you can twist a rotary encoder, you can set notes
asciilifeform: nubbins`: at various points i've tried all kinds of 'cheats', incl. 'ear trainers' etc
BingoBoingo: Tuba is a great instrument for outputting polyphony solo
asciilifeform: nubbins`: can never get the physical sound to correspond to what was in head.
nubbins`: ah ah, i see
nubbins`: that, there's not much helping
nubbins`: but if you like the idea of directly manipulating sound waves
asciilifeform: actual musicians tell me that the head music is a mirage.
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Culprit is bone conduction.
nubbins`: and channeling them through various components of your choosing...
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: culprit is not having whatever neural circuit folks who can actually do music have

asciilifeform: was never, however, interested in 'learning to play instrument' in the usual sense of being human player piano

nubbins`: er sorry
nubbins`: that was worded poorly
asciilifeform: (i mostly gave up on the subject years ago)
asciilifeform: nubbins`: read linked article.
BingoBoingo: My hypothesis is that whistling and humming acquire the correct pitch by way of bang-bang correction. The delay between each “bang” your brain produces and the resulting sound is imperceptibly small, because the vocal apparatus is located so near, and the necessary muscle motions are so minute. Thus, the correct pitch seems to come out as if by magic. And yet no magic is involved. << Normally magic of musicians with perfect pi
BingoBoingo: tch is being able to surrender to hearing the wrong thing when they perform themselves and simply mapping correspindence to the right hting.
nubbins`: asciilifeform i dunno man, it honestly sounds like a 'tribe can do what you're describing
BingoBoingo: "perfect pitch" is almost always trained.
asciilifeform: nubbins`: unless i misunderstand, the linked device is something like a theremin (in the continuously-variable input sense, rather than mechanism per se) ?

assbot: 11 results for 'theremin' : http://s.b-a.link/?q=theremin
nubbins`: asciilifeform it's got a digital step-sequencer built into it, so once you find your correct input tone, you can map it to a step.
nubbins`: it'll store 8 or 16 steps and loop them
asciilifeform: except the process of searching by trial and error destroys the head music.
asciilifeform: that's what i've found.
decimation learned 'a' (440 hz) by listening to 'wwv'
nubbins`: but the actual sound production side of it is 100% analog, so full granularity on pitch, tone, a bunch of other things
asciilifeform: nubbins`: i've played with continuously-variable synths, as an electronics enthusiast; trust me, it made zero difference.
nubbins`: then i feel your agony
asciilifeform: not sure why this isn't making sense to nubbins`
BingoBoingo: <asciilifeform> except the process of searching by trial and error destroys the head music. << This so much
nubbins`: i once dated a woman who worked at a craft store. a guy comes rushing in one day screaming about music paper. he needed to write down the notes in his head before he forgot them.
nubbins`: if i'm not mistaken, your problem is the inability to express your tune as either notes or as a hum that can be recorded
asciilifeform: i can't even say for certain that it is real. it's rather like describing dreams. if there's no way to get it out of your head, it exists only for you.

decimation: mircea_popescu: well, the way it works now, to my understanding, is that there's a kind of wot among high-spec clocks
mod6: looks ok on that box
mircea_popescu: time as anything other than arbitrary convention is a hard proposition.
danielpbarron: TheNewDeal, not frequently.. but i host a cash game every saturday

BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Will note
mircea_popescu: (i'm not disputing the timing of subatomic events)
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: interval is rigorously defined as n transitions of cesium atom b/w energy levels
asciilifeform: the purpose is precision rather than accuracy.
BingoBoingo: !up tripleslash
mircea_popescu: this is like "rigurously" defining womanhood as "n individual sex acts"
asciilifeform: precision timekeeping is what allows for, e.g., satellite navigation.
tripleslash: fucking znc
BingoBoingo: timekeeping is a myth
decimation: yeah, I am inaccurately using the word 'accuracy'
mircea_popescu: tripleslash you too ?
asciilifeform: rigorous, in this case, means 'arbitrarily replicable'
asciilifeform: on demand.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform notice that so would be his.
mircea_popescu: for different values, ofcourse.
BingoBoingo: Time is properly not measured from reality, but imposed upon reality.
asciilifeform: incidentally, cesium standard is a fairly recent thing.
mircea_popescu: well so is the iridium alloy meter.
asciilifeform: was arrived at somewhat reluctantly, as i understand.
asciilifeform: just as metre.
mircea_popescu: standards generally are a recent thing. but time is particularly iffy when you try to bridge what's fundamentally unbridgeable
mircea_popescu: (micro to macro interactions)
decimation: isn't that what your processor is doing right now?
mircea_popescu: note, re the "replication" that recently they were stuck adding a 2nd 3rd second off midnight,
mircea_popescu: coupla weeks ago
asciilifeform: stuck?
mircea_popescu: decimation yeah, which is why we just had a cve earlier.

asciilifeform: what if they didn't. what then. sunrise off by a few ns.
mircea_popescu: well...
mircea_popescu: EXACTLY. same argument bolsters the "time in blocks" conventionb.
asciilifeform: i say braindamaged.
BingoBoingo: Space similarly, not a property of "nature", but imposed upon nature by the apperception
mircea_popescu: we can agree that any convention is provably broken. that's by definition.
decimation: mircea_popescu: the question, as I stated earlier, is whether 'rotation of the earth about axis' or 'number of vibrations of cesium' is your timebase
mircea_popescu: decimation maybe "biotcoin blocks" is your timebase.
mircea_popescu: i can see a whole swathe of applications for which it would be.
decimation: sure. but note that the precision is measureably poor
mircea_popescu: such as, contracts. "rent this appartment for 50`000 blocks"
asciilifeform: as far as anyone has been able to determine to date, the atom does not temporally misbehave, and so it can be used as clock to the limits of the measurement precision.
mircea_popescu: only in YOUR system
mircea_popescu: in my system YOUR precision is measurably poor.
mircea_popescu: relativity. it's a thing.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform as long as that determination was made in a certain system that precludes so and so :)
mircea_popescu: "hey check it out, as long as im measuring atom transitions by atom transitions, atom transitions do not appear to misbehave!"
BingoBoingo: Kritik der reinen Vernunft A37=B54fn
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: notice that folks who actually need the cesium fountain for practical work do not bother with the metaphysics. but simply end up defining precise timebase as 'the thing that, if any noisier, now you can't geolocate but to +/-1km...'
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform that's why i laid into him. he wanted micro precision somehow magically over macro spans.
mircea_popescu: otherwise suire, atopmic clock works great for atomic physics.
BingoBoingo still maintains official apperception independent time standard off of wound spring.
mircea_popescu: lol how many shots you in bb ?
decimation: well, your 'bitcoin clock' would be pretty poor at precisely measuring a range of natural phenomena, with epicycles aplenty

nubbins`: once i get dimensions & info i'll design packaging, instructions, whole deal
TomServo: I wonder, would there be any interest in developing a companion to the junior woodchuck node?
TomServo: Something along the lines of a freenas build that includes a fullnode, gossipd server, ntp server, #b-a-wot-curated datahaven, or whatever else sounds useful.
mircea_popescu: TomServo might be. but ntp sucks and gossipd don't exist yet.
mircea_popescu: !up berndj

mircea_popescu: way i was planning to do this was an equivalent of "show me your tits", ie, buy a router, install it, show proof, get your money back.
mircea_popescu: cheaper, faster and imo more effective.
nubbins`: so like a "$50 with $50 irc-in rebate"
mircea_popescu: yup
nubbins`: nb.
nubbins`: most people would not take the 50 back
mircea_popescu: entirely up to them.
nubbins`: nod
nubbins`: could even use blockchain-based proof
mircea_popescu: but w/e, if you were going to get yourserlf one, get yourself three, give to your gf and your mother, get rebate for the two
nubbins`: unit creates a tx unique to itself, pushes to bc as proof of it firing up

nubbins`: daemon monitors addresses of distributed units, disburses funds in the form of btc when a unit goes live

mircea_popescu: not so crazy about the privacy implications.

asciilifeform: but if you wanted to have any 'wallet' functionality, the thing would have to take rpc commands or equivalent on the lan, but more direly, would need either rng or an embedded one-time pad
nubbins`: you could actually construct the entire transaction before loading it onto the device
nubbins`: and just store the tx
mircea_popescu: mebbe i misunderstand what's being proposed here /
mircea_popescu: nubbins` if whoever buys a unit installs whatever code he wants on it, he can use any address he pleases.

asciilifeform: some idiot will buy, redeem the reward, and turn in for scrap
nubbins`: some number of idiots will do this no matter what
mircea_popescu: i somehow doubt it, but anyway.
nubbins`: some will produce a photo of their running unit, then scrap it
nubbins`: etc etc
nubbins`: but giving money to people who pop on irc and provide photos of their gear is retarded
nubbins`: actually retarded
nubbins`: however, generating a bunch of signed transactions and loading a single one onto each unit, which the eventual owner may spend or discard as he sees fit...
asciilifeform: i for one do not have an earth-shatteringly clever answer to the conundrum of how to persuade maxint people to buy & plug these in
mircea_popescu: nubbins` but this is an "owner orders unit and loads the code"
nubbins`: you can't persuade people to do something long-term if they don't see a long-term benefit, period.
nubbins`: those who want to keep running their nodes will. those who don't will cash out (or not!) and stop.
mircea_popescu: the long term benefit is a "just keep it powered and you are providing one full node"
asciilifeform: for the motherland (tm)
nubbins`: mircea_popescu: okay, then i'm talking about "nubbins orders 10k units, pre-loads the code, does what he just described, makes $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$, donates 10% to .foundation, moves to dutch antilles"
trinque: are there any services a derpuser might be able to use within his own network if he has a full node?
trinque: the filesharing thing has always appealed to me
trinque: some bitcoin-telegraph for torrents thing
asciilifeform: conjecture is that there is a set of folks who want to do this, but aren't now because 'i haven't a second pc' or 'fan too loud' ?
mircea_popescu: nubbins` how do you pay for 10k units ?
nubbins`: i'm rich, why the fuck do you think i can sit around here all day?
mircea_popescu: trinque for one thing, you can use it as a proxy for your actual bitcoind
mircea_popescu: much safer.
mircea_popescu: nubbins` so then move to the antiles ?
nubbins`: gross, too hot
mircea_popescu: !up phillipsjk
trinque: mircea_popescu: yep that's a good thing
nubbins`: anyway, consider the quantity suitably modified
nubbins`: i wholeheartedly encourage you to ship the devices as you see fit
mircea_popescu: nubbins` you know, schemes to grow rich off rebate deals are kinda kramer-esque
mircea_popescu: im not shipping anything
nubbins`: and also toss out the fact that a "ready to go" version will make .foundation more financially independent
phillipsjk: I am sure you all know about the block-size controversy. How harw will it be for the end-user to change the block-size on these units?
mircea_popescu: that's the problem : to have them shipped to a central location and then shipped out trebles the cost
mircea_popescu: let people just buy thjem themselves.
mircea_popescu: phillipsjk impossible.
nubbins`: nod
nubbins`: or do a thing like raspi did, sub it out to the mfg's
mircea_popescu: wut ?
mircea_popescu: i specifically do not wish the purchase tobe identifiable.
asciilifeform: a determined luser could, in principle, rebuild the entire thing with phoundation's turd in place of ours, sure
mircea_popescu: l;et people buy individually, i dont want to ship out a stock of special-diddled machines
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform yes but he'll hjave to get gavin to sell him some of those magical 10 terrabyte ssd's he has from the future.
nubbins`: hm
mircea_popescu: you know, when the space kept doubling.
nubbins`: so this is essentially a mouser parts list, and a list of instructions?
asciilifeform: idk what you folks had in mind, but what i was making was that one of these can plug with crossover cable into a virginal unit and deflower it. ☟︎
phillipsjk: asciilifeform, I was thinking, simply modify your code to handle a larger block-size.
mircea_popescu: nubbins` yup
mircea_popescu: so far at any rate.
nubbins`: o.
mircea_popescu: phillipsjk that's not the problem : anyone with half a clue can do the same and make a diff bitcoin static

nubbins`: yes, precisely
nubbins`: luser can go to walmart and buy one off the shelf, plug it in at home
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform only problem is getting the first unit
asciilifeform: just... breed them.
asciilifeform: first unit - use pc, yes, or borrow from phriend.
mircea_popescu: yeah.
mircea_popescu: i don't want to be shipping these out by hand if i can help it.
phillipsjk: What size SSD are you thinking of using?
asciilifeform: why ship them? so many folks already selling them. just need defloration.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform exactly. well nubbins` was proposing a packaging etc.
danielpbarron: a 256 should last for 5 years if blocks are 1mb
asciilifeform: no need to buy exotic ssd either. old laptop hdd 64G and above ought to do for a while
mircea_popescu: phillipsjk 256 so far.
phillipsjk was planing on buying a new "cheap" SSD every year for his full node.
nubbins`: minimal, but nonetheless
mircea_popescu: phillipsjk i don't think anyone'll be able to beat the "spend a coupla hours having fun with real deal code, then forget about it" deal.
asciilifeform: if one of you wants to print glossy stickers to cover the oem case, with dire warnings re: drive will be formatted, etc. whatever, cardboard boxes, - why not. but this is a luxury
phillipsjk: Yes, I understand the appeal of a "set it and forget it" box. Sometimes, upgrades are kind of forced on users though. My former ISP mailed out a VSDL Modem when the local monopoy stopped supporting the older ADSL modem.
mircea_popescu: you don't plug it into the wall

mircea_popescu: asciilifeform that's a good idea btw. can it do that much ?

phillipsjk: trinque, because that is the only thing MIcrosoft supports. Therefore every USB stick is pre-formatted with it. I understand you removed Microsoft compatibility from your code anyway.

davout: in addition to the thing itself
asciilifeform: davout: i'm testing a replacement firmware (for the internal eeprom) that sees if sata disk is present, and, if not already containing a blockchain, formats it and starts from nil
asciilifeform: davout: the unit presently churning on my desk was booted from sd card - which i was using for testing (final firmware will be a read-only squashfs)
davout: ok, the thing itself doesn't include storage, does it have to be a sata disk, or would a large enough sd be enough?
asciilifeform: davout: sd is slow as fuck
mircea_popescu: and wear prob lems
mircea_popescu: but it may work.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: it was about 35x slower than the sata presently running
davout: ok, if its performance is storage-speed bound i should get a disk with it
asciilifeform: who doesn't have a bag of old laptop drives lying around ?
mircea_popescu: most people lol
davout: lol
davout: "No storage limits and no additional fees when using your own external hard drive" <<< lol, good to know
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform yes, slower. obviously if a block takes less thna 10 minutes it's still perfectly usable.
asciilifeform: at this point, even most 'civilians' have the bag. just with the disks still in their shells (laptops, that is..)
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform fun fact : 50% of america dreams of but doesn't own and can't afford a laptop.

asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i've seen hobos with laptop. not uncommon.

mircea_popescu: davout untested but conceivably.
davout: asciilifeform: just because they stink and hang out all day at starbucks doesn't mean they're actual hobos
mircea_popescu: ^ aptly put.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: from speaking with some, learned that actual hobos, traditional. but with laptop, because why not? none were born hobo
mircea_popescu: women aren't sluts just because they're dressed in the nude ; derps on tv aren't scientists just because they wear a white lab coat ; stinky hobos at your local starbucks aren't anything other than all the other people in starbucks.

jurov: http://therealbitcoin.org/ml/btc-dev/patches.html but here the column "signed by" seems utter mess :(
assbot: ... ( http://bit.ly/15UXoLr )
asciilifeform: davout: hence this idea. it did not come from empty space.
mod6: ah cool, i see it now
davout: asciilifeform: it's the best formulation for somebody unqualified like me to say it's a good idea :-)

pete_dushenski: nubbins`: i'm not sure why willingness or reluctance would have anything to do with becoming the largest economy. china's was the largest for most of the second millenium ad, whether or not anyone had anything to say on the matter
pete_dushenski: it seems to me that it just was
pete_dushenski: just as it just is
pete_dushenski: just as bitcoin will itself underpin a large global economy.

asciilifeform: none of the gpg logs end up written
mod6: are you using the one from teh email or the one from the website?
asciilifeform: site
mod6: it should start it's own keyring (.gnupg) dir in the build directory.
mod6: clean it out and then set: FULL_CLEAN=TRUE
asciilifeform: it does, but none of the keys are marked 'trusted', it appears
mod6: Should still end up with "Good Signature"
mircea_popescu: hm
asciilifeform: the gpg logs never happen.
mod6: *shrug*, works for me i guess
mircea_popescu: o.O
mircea_popescu: what's this, the magic website ?!
mod6: I'll take it down.
mod6: YOu'll just have to patch it by hand.
mircea_popescu: but i mean...
nubbins`: you mean, we nice
nubbins`: ;/
mod6: done

mod6: asciilifeform: see pm, maybe you can help me debug that thing
BingoBoingo: phillipsjk: Did you decode and reply with !v decryptedstring?
jurov: mod6 i'm on it, too
mod6: thanks jurov
phillipsjk: no, I just gave it the decrypted string
BingoBoingo: phillipsjk: Ah, you have to prefix the string with !v so assbot can keister it.
mircea_popescu: well done.

jurov: is there a command to unescape clearsigned text?
jurov: in the script there are plenty of lines starting with -
jurov: that got mangled
davout: jurov: gpg -d would do that
jurov: mod6 ^
jurov: got it working
davout: iirc that'll output unescaped text to stdout and signature verification result to stderr

mircea_popescu: size_needed = (sizeof (*host_addr)

mircea_popescu: + + sizeof (*h_addr_ptrs)

mircea_popescu: pretty fucking lulzy too.
mod6: \o/
mod6: thanks mp
mircea_popescu: that's basically it, recompile.
mod6: jurov: that's awesome... and just because im slow... that's inreference to the email issue right?
jurov: mod6 that's about script not working
mod6: oh. weird.
mod6: OH
mod6: ok.. yes.
mod6: i remember now... sorry, too many things flying by me. so yeah, clearsign added all these weird '-' infront of some lines.
mod6: the one that I had linked on the webpage, needs a bit of debugging i think.
jurov: but it won't work anyway, gpg apprently won't create the logfile as requested
jurov: and won't accept relative paths for homedir
mod6: now that is bizzare
jurov: and if pointed to empty homedit, it won't import keys
jurov: *homedir
mod6: so you're saying that this doesn't work: gpg --logger-file alert-snip.sig.log --homedir .gnupg
mod6: (for instance)
mod6: it's gotta be a versioning problem.
mod6: lemme see what I was using...
mod6: root@ip-172-31-10-219:~# gpg --version
mod6: gpg (GnuPG) 1.4.10
mod6: and
jurov: gpg --logger-file gpgout.log --import pubkeys/*.asc << this line
mod6: root@debian-test:/home/mod6# gpg --version
mod6: gpg (GnuPG) 1.4.10
mod6: huh.
jurov: gpg (GnuPG) 2.0.25 << such spawn of evil
mod6: jurov: if you don't mind, what version of gpg are you using
mod6: ahh, ok
mod6: yeah, i think this is an old school thing
mod6 looks
jurov: anyway, gonna post my script
mod6: deeeerp
mod6: --log-file file
mod6: --logger-file file Same as --logger-fd, except the logger data is written to file file. Note that --log-file is only implemented for GnuPG-2.
