assbot: ... ( http://bit.ly/1Hnbkyo )
mircea_popescu: i gotta say ... that's some gnarly shit. is this how sql actually works ?
trinque: mircea_popescu: no! dear god no!
mircea_popescu: trinque % is wildcard right ?
trinque: mircea_popescu: yeah for the like operator
mircea_popescu: there's like 100 of them in there, that should be pretty wild to run
trinque: the sad thing about sql is it tried to be an end user programming language
trinque: behind that mess is an utterly elegant data model
trinque: really relational algebra's the thing, not sql, and someone should redo the former sans the latter
trinque: the idea was accountants or somesuch would be able to write SQL
mircea_popescu: hm.
Naphex: mircea_popescu: whats dummer is that looks like a table for machine learning
Naphex: and its using sql for that
Naphex: big lol
Naphex: horrible stuff
mircea_popescu: pretty gnarly.
trinque: Naphex: neh your thing just needs to be smart enough to make its own tables, relational can do runtime structure creation just fine
trinque: the system catalog is there for a reason
davout: CASEs in SQL queries, my eyes burn
cazalla: BingoBoingo, you and your altcoin coverage!!
trinque: I had a mentor burn rdbms into my mind indelibly; it's as right and overlooked as lisp
BingoBoingo: cazalla: danielpbarron's altcoin coverage
cazalla: BingoBoingo, but you encouraged him! i'm not too fussed on altcoins but i would've made mention how foolish redditors were to believe a jew was going to give away 5 million
ben_vulpes: <mircea_popescu> ben_vulpes was about 160ish it bottomed out neh ? << which plebs actually caught that knife?
davout: trinque: a lot of rdbms will let you do relational algebra, it's just that people don't use it
BingoBoingo: lol cazalla
trinque: davout: well shit, a lot of derps try to turn it into a key value store
trinque: and all kinds of other foot-blown-off scenarios
davout: yup
trinque: incidentally postgresql spanks the ass off any other kv store on earth
trinque: with native json types
jurov: mircea_popescu: that was *enterprise* sql
davout: trinque: how do you even use that kind of stuff, does it give you tools to actually filter on the json object?
davout: iirc mssql also had the kind of native stuff for xml
jurov: davout yes it does
davout: may it burn in hell
trinque: yep
jurov: with indexes, everything
trinque: postgres ate yer mongo, postgres ate yer couch
BingoBoingo: !up felipelalli
trinque: postgres slapped your mother, postgres fucked your spouse
mats: mongo was never good
trinque: mats: reasoning of "json therefore..."
mats: says the db guy i work with, anyway.
trinque: any new database will incrementally do the things sql already did
trinque: or kick them to the app layer where those idiots will do even worse
trinque: constraints, indexes, transactions, etc etc
davout: sure, lets use uuids as primary keys
trinque: this idea for example that schema's too hard! the fuck?! like building the lack of schema into each query isn't infinitely worse?
trinque: and you can write dynamic code even that will build out schema for you because there's a system catalog to reference
trinque: ^ most underused feature of SQL there is
trinque: I once wrote a thing that'd dynamically generate schema for production rules of a given grammer given the relational representation of that grammar, and a dynamic to-string in the other direction
trinque: do that in your mongo
jurov: schema is subject to change irl and there be dragons. but i presume with btc it isn't a problem, no changes expected

trinque: the company all but collapsed but we produced this: https://github.com/aquameta/pg_meta
assbot: aquameta/pg_meta · GitHub ... ( http://bit.ly/1HngJWa )
trinque: having that you can write queries which output things which can be inserted into the writable system catalog
jurov: okay let's not go overboard with this :)
davout: jurov: lol, too late
trinque: jurov: what, writing wads of plpgsql to do it is better?
trinque: being able to declaratively modify schema was incredible
trinque: too bad the owner of the biz thought money was filthy
jurov: 90% of migrations isn't about schema, but about data
trinque: I also jacked git into postgres and did an automatic migrations system
trinque: via a foreign data wrapper
trinque: given the right set of first principles in a system so many things become trivial

trinque: shitty dispatch, shitty scoping tool, shitty ....
davout: trinque: that & is just a pointer to function

trinque: ah lol

felipelalli: Hi gang noise! :] (sorry if I can't express myself very well in English) First of all, I want to apologize for that "gavin day", really sorry about that.
felipelalli: Then, I can see you guys are talking something about altcoins (I couldn't follow everything), and by change I've been thinking all day about something related to write an article. Actually I've been thinking about it from a long time ago, and the subject is: << the importance (or not) of a strong "second" coin >> and I'd love to read the most I could about it (altcoins, sidechain, and related) and I'm sure you guys have have a plenty of
felipelalli: material. I know I can search on Google but I guess you guys already have selected that "cherry cake" about this theme. Trying to summarize: my point is to show the importance (or not) of a strong coin to be used together with bitcoin. My initial thesis is that in the future (almost) all wallets will work with two (or maybe 3) totally different coins. The second coin would be so important as silver was in the past when the government tried
felipelalli: to "confiscated" the gold (I heard about that but I have to study more deeply). I came to this conclusion because I know bitcoin can't be available 24/7 forever. It will eventually fail in some situation (for example during a bad made hard fork - either because Gavin's gang spoiled or not) and at that time everybody should already is using some strong second coin to be used as backup during a temporary "bitcoin blackout". I think this coin
felipelalli: would work similar as silver works to the economy (silver have ~ 777B market cap in a quick search I just made, not too much compared with gold but it is enough). Even if this coin have only 5 or 6% of total bitcoin value, it could be useful to "don't stop the world" when bitcoin is under attack or maintenance. --- If I am wrong about that, I could write about what this is a bad idea and altcoins are bad at all.
felipelalli: Thank you!
trinque: jesus christ dude, use a pastebin
felipelalli: ahhaah sorry
felipelalli: I'd write few, but... you know. I just wrote, wrote...

asciilifeform: so!!!
asciilifeform: i just began live-fire test of the first really dangerous patch ☟︎
asciilifeform: for therealbitcoin
asciilifeform: a backport of the orphan trimming mechanism.
BingoBoingo: Good luck
asciilifeform: even if it works, it will need serious review
asciilifeform: by folks who actually understand what they are doing.
BingoBoingo: !up metsuno

metsuno: Thanks BingoBoingo
danielpbarron: and who were you btw, forgive me i can't recall who you were
metsuno: I'm need to muck around with my os first though
danielpbarron: it's been a while since porcfest
metsuno: we had a very lenghty discussion about bitcoin. you told me about the awesomeness of openbsd. i helped you pretend-assassinate that guy.
danielpbarron: ohhh cool that's who i thought
danielpbarron: that assassin thing was the best part of the whole week, besides poker of course ☟︎
metsuno: it was an interesting adventure. that's for sure.
danielpbarron: are you going to the next one? I'm planning on it
danielpbarron: hopefully with a box full of cardanos and a qntra press pass
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform im not so sure this is a good idea.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: it's a test.
mircea_popescu: "a test"
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: quite certainly not meant to go in the tree under any circumstances.
asciilifeform: test of hypothesis.
asciilifeform: it runs
asciilifeform: but i very much did not like what i had to do to get it to build.
metsuno: danielpbarron, I'm definitely going.
asciilifeform: i will describe the algorithm here.
asciilifeform: (as found in the enemy code)
asciilifeform: what they did is to set a limit (default == 750) of 'orphan blocks' (terribly confusing term, nothing whatsoever to do with orphaned chains)
asciilifeform: and when the limit is reached, one is picked for eviction from the cache
mircea_popescu: ;;later tell phillipsjk "run into the ground" ? lay off the pipe, man. you don't have enough disposable income to cover my harem's feminine hygiene products bill.
gribble: The operation succeeded.
asciilifeform: but if it has antecedents, the chain of those is followed to the end and the terminus is dropped.
mircea_popescu: a collection of yous is going to run exactly noting into exactly nothing.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform as i said before, it's a kudge to fix another kludge. we don't really wnat any of it.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: you can't even begin to fathom how true this is
asciilifeform: (unless you read the bugger)
asciilifeform: the question does remain, however - what is to be done with toy node
mircea_popescu: you know the joke with the shitting jews ?
asciilifeform: ?
mircea_popescu: two jews shitting in adjoining stalls.
mircea_popescu: "hey, do you suppose this is work ?" ☟︎
mircea_popescu: "nah. if it were, we'd be paying someone to do it for us."
asciilifeform: lol!
mircea_popescu: anyway. "what is to be done" re what ?
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: it can't fly with 0.5.3.1 as it presently lives.
mircea_popescu: and you know this how ?
asciilifeform: strong empirical data
mircea_popescu: be specific.
asciilifeform: oomkill every 20 min. or so
mircea_popescu: so ?
mircea_popescu: once it takes > 10 mins / block i'll care.
asciilifeform: eventually db will be corrupted (may already be silently corrupt?)
mircea_popescu: it'll be fine.
asciilifeform: see observations of ben_vulpes re: above

asciilifeform: other thing is, it's quadratic.
mircea_popescu: it won a great patriotic war.
mircea_popescu: look, let it run first.
asciilifeform: every time the thing reboots, the longer the chain, the longer the re-init.
mircea_popescu: let it run to where it takes > 10 minutes / block.
asciilifeform: there's another aspect to it
asciilifeform: the behaviour of the thing during death is by no means well-defined

mircea_popescu: enemy can not beat 12 dolla.
asciilifeform: he will say 'mine is $0, runs on your winblows pc'
mircea_popescu: we're upstream. enemy wants to kill bitpay, it can start a forkwar with me. enemy wants to convince people "bitcoin sucks", it can "create plausible scenes"
mircea_popescu: yaya.

mircea_popescu: asciilifeform 12 dollars.
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: Opiates are not barbiturate, and heroin withdrawal indeed often only makes people wish they were dying.
asciilifeform: 12 dollars for a box that can be driven off the net by blowing on it
mircea_popescu: i never heard of an "alcohol addict" dead for no alcohol.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform you have to keep blowing.
BingoBoingo: barbiturate withdrawals, benzodiazepine withdrawals and alcohols withdrawls, potentially deadly "Delerium Tremens"
mircea_popescu: delirium tremens is hardly that ffs.
asciilifeform: the 'naturally-occurring' nodes supply most of the wind
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform it is also very easy to squish a cockroach.
mircea_popescu: atmosphere already supplies most of the squishing.

asciilifeform: haha, it finally croaked
asciilifeform: 750 was a bit much.
asciilifeform puts the traditional turd back on
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform to be clear, did you stop the original thing again to run a something else ?
asciilifeform: yes
mircea_popescu: yeah srsly, just buy another box if you can't stop fucking with it
mircea_popescu: and let the thing just run unmolested.
asciilifeform: 2nd box came finally.
mircea_popescu: decimation: why don't these kind of people with a brain just leave the country? <<< i dunno decimation. why don't they ?
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform: if you were planning to kill someone, would you helpfully tell him first ? << that's not the point. in a normal society, the threat is a fundamental tool to hierarchy building. ☟︎
asciilifeform: -credible- thread.
asciilifeform: *threat
mircea_popescu: the socialist state does not want a normally functioning society, but instead this stellar configuration where the state is at the center, ☟︎☟︎☟︎
mircea_popescu: and every citizen linked to it to the detriment of all else.
mircea_popescu: no, not credible. a threat at all.
mircea_popescu: it works on fundamental structures of the hominid brain, much like flirting makes the girl wet.
mircea_popescu: which is why i am not ever giving it up. the freedom to threaten is not merely my fundamental, unassailable sovereign property, but moreover essential for the construction of effectual instruments to squash the socialists and their golums. ☟︎☟︎☟︎☟︎☟︎☟︎☟︎☟︎
asciilifeform: this is a very sharp observation, but is it unique to the modern state?
mircea_popescu: well, that quickly gets iffy.
asciilifeform: what of ancient despotisms, with the public impaler, etc. - did not want to be at the stellar configuration center ?
mircea_popescu: nah, no mechanised ways to handle it,
mircea_popescu: the computer has a lot to do with this, it's a quantum leap in the possibilities of bureaucracy.
asciilifeform: the khan rides from town to town, has squad in tow with stake
asciilifeform: or, ivan iv, with cauldrons/oil
asciilifeform: worked beautifully
mircea_popescu: if it worked, more by accident than anything.
mircea_popescu: think of it this way : most russian peasants as late as 1800 had never seen the czar.
mircea_popescu: every last us residing cockroach has seen obama THIS WEEK
asciilifeform: well yes
mircea_popescu: well then.
asciilifeform: but the basic dread of the state, by peasant, is similar
mircea_popescu: no.
mircea_popescu: the peasant did not fear the czar will come and fuck his daughter.
mircea_popescu: the peasant loved the czar specifically for this reason.

ben_vulpes: should blockchain dl be performed sequentially?
asciilifeform: you can't do anything with them, except a) discard b) store in hope of gluing the chain together later
asciilifeform: classical bitcoind is all (b) and no (a)
asciilifeform: never, ever (a)
asciilifeform: thus it is doomed to die after snarfing up sufficiently many of these.
ben_vulpes: i guess the subquestion would be is b) even practical
ben_vulpes: doomed << well, question answered

coderwill: ben_vulpes: the first thing i asked was to see the cap table
coderwill: ben_vulpes: sorry wasn't around to reply
coderwill: so when i asked to see the cap table, was told that no one except investors are allowed to see cap table
coderwill: then what mike_c said was almost exactly what happened afterward, ironically
mircea_popescu: next time tell them "listen bub, i'm not fresh off the turnip truck. you want to hire me on pure salary, it's $1,5mn the first year payable upfront and increasing by 1mn each eyar after that.
mircea_popescu: now go get that cap table."
coderwill: yeah, i thought about that at the time, but then was like, well, i guess i'm getting to work at one of the most well-known wallet providers, that could be good for subsequent opportunities
mircea_popescu: except it's moreover bad.
