mircea_popescu: "Alexis Tsipras said on Wednesday that he wanted a "viable, mutually beneficial solution" to what he called a humanitarian disaster his country has suffered as a result of the austerity imposed by its creditors."
mircea_popescu: humanitarian disaster, yeah. greeks no longer able to spend whole day crowding the coffee shops across the acropolis, acting like they're the russian rich people coming to visit
mircea_popescu: typical moive, too, now that they've got all the free money that they were liable to get. greece is basically a hooker.
mircea_popescu: for the past... uh i dunno, 2k years ? pretty much the mode

mircea_popescu: The media explains how things relate to him, and as long as he understands what's going on, he feels empowered. He is given an ideology without even knowing it. Now he doesn't actually have to do anything, indeed, it's way the hell better if he does nothing. All that's required is support, and through his support not only will "the right things" happen but he'll share in the credit.
mircea_popescu: You'll counter that there are right leaning and left leaning independents, isn't there a difference? but this misses the point: propaganda doesn't try to get you to believe something, but to do something, and in this case it is to do nothing-- it doesn't matter what you choose to believe, as long as your outrage is done from inside your house.
mircea_popescu: This is the whole gimmick of media, not polar but triangular, right, left, middle, mobilizing an army of assonauts to feel strongly enough about something that they don't do anything.
mircea_popescu: holy shit i love this guy.,

mircea_popescu: "convincing" is not a criterion.
asciilifeform: re: mapOrphanBlocks: there is some confusion of terminology in the source. the orphan blocks in question are not the orphan blocks spoken of usually (i.e. blocks on dead ends of the tree) but rather any block for which the antecedent is not yet loaded by the node
asciilifeform: hence the nondeterminism. the blocks arrive in braindamaged order and are not sorted in any intelligent way

mike_c: asciilifeform: the answer was it ran all night and didn't do a damn thing.

davout: but an sql datastore would be really cool indeed
trinque: davout: what did I overlook? that was assuming everything that got stored in sql was validated by say an insert trigger
davout: not all transactions are a transaction to a pubkey
davout: some implementations will let you store the DB in a SQL store iirc
trinque: davout: right, but the balance would be "that which has been spent to me, and not subsequently spent elsewhere"
davout: sure
davout: https://github.com/lian/bitcoin-ruby/blob/master/doc/STORAGE.rdoc <-- this would let you use a SQL backend
assbot: bitcoin-ruby/STORAGE.rdoc at master · lian/bitcoin-ruby · GitHub ... ( http://bit.ly/1A3CIgJ )
trinque: ben_vulpes tells me there's one that pulls it into postgresql too
trinque: davout: what kind of transaction does not involve a pubkey?
davout: trinque: p2sh for example
trinque: and would that be a concern of something trying to ascertain a balance
fluffypony: "balance" is subjective
davout: not really if you only use normal addresses
fluffypony: if you receive a transaction with an NLOCKTIME in the future is that part of your balance or the sender's balance?
davout: there's also multisig, that you can do with the dedicated script, or in the p2sh fashion
davout: fluffypony: balance(t) <-- fixed :-)
trinque: fluffypony: right, the subject being this bot, in this instance
trinque: so I can constrain the domain of things I care about
trinque: simple funding transactions, simple "publishing" transactions
davout: trinque: do you intend to run a full client for deedbot's needs?
trinque: using btcd at the moment
davout: i don't know shit about this one
trinque: has the same wad 'o json api
davout: the way i'd do it is simply keep an unspent out around
davout: when i have the addy to spend to for notarization, create a raw tx spending from that, and sending all the change back to the original address
davout: that way you keep one private key around, and you just need to track one txid that you reuse in the next tx
trinque: davout: I'm hesitant to keep my own count of btc when the correct value can be pulled from the node
trinque: say I send a transaction, get one confirmation, then the thing still ended up on the losing fork
TheNewDeal: davout , isn't p2sh nonstandard ?
davout: hrm yeah, i forgot about keeping count of the balance, for that you should be able to use the gettxout call though
davout: TheNewDeal: i don't think so
trinque: yup, that's where the "roll forward from first funding transaction's block" comes from
trinque: and then back to my rant re: holy shit this is a trivial query with well-structured data
trinque: anyhow that's what I'll do for now
davout: TheNewDeal: blockchain.info failed miserably at detecting them for a while, don't know if that's changed since, but afaik it's perfectly standard, and nodes will relay them
trinque: since the thing publishes once an hour, rolling forward doesn't seem that big a deal
trinque: each time it's funded the starting point will advance, too
davout: trinque: so you keep the txid around, query your client for the txout and work from there? not very clear on what you mean

trinque: davout: we did not find a way to just "get all utxos" from btcd, could've overlooked something obvious. barring that, I can roll forward from the block where it was first funded and just chew on all the transactions from there forward looking for relevant ones
ben_vulpes: yeah i've lost the btcd documentation
davout: trinque: if you import a private key into bitcoind you'll get the 'listunspent' call, don't know about btcd
trinque: davout: right, if I use a wallet, wallet does everything for me
davout: but it's not possible to get the list of unspent outs given an arbitrary private key
trinque: btcd has btcwallet, seems overkill
mod6: jurov: gotcha.
mod6: think we should switch to the black & hacker-green motif?
ben_vulpes: yeah looks great :D
davout: if you're not using the wallet you just know the first out you spend, and you know the next one from the raw tx you create, you still need 'gettxout' to not have to follow the balance around
