cazalla: anyone able to recommend wiki software?
mircea_popescu: kakobrekla is using something on b-a wiki
mike_c: why not just use the b-a wiki? It already has limited editors.
mike_c: unless it's meant as seo fodder for qntra i guess.

cazalla: mike_c, that is specific to #b-a moreso than Bitcoin in general isn't it? and anyway, if i pursue this by myself in the short-mid term, it'll reflect on me instead of b-a website
mike_c: it is specific to bitcoin assets, yes :) History of bitcoin companies seems appropriate. But I think it mostly depends on how much help you want.
mike_c: If you want a bunch of people to contribute, the wiki is there. If you basically want to do it yourself, then sure, put it wherever.
mike_c: It certainly would tie in with qntra.

BingoBoingo: Adlai: is it that hard to imagine that nsa doesn't need the manufacturers' text source to backdoor their drives!? << PC9000
Adlai is too busy doing the victory dance to look this up... he now has two scalpls running in the same lisp image and they're not stepping on eachother's toes
Adlai: last time i tried this, with a financier watching over my shoulder, his bot trod on mine, and after much wailing and gnashing of teeth, both irrevocably crashed... that was nearly 5 months ago. now it's working flawlessly :D

decimation: that netagio closing is amusing. I wonder what the real story behind it is
decimation: " Market share of Bitcoin trading globally continues to mirror Bitcoin adoption stages, with China leading the way with 67%, the US capturing 27% of all Bitcoin trading, the EU following with 2.5% and the UK with a stagnating 0.25%, mostly as a result of a lack of regulatory guidelines and UK banks withdrawing banking support from British Bitcoin businesses."
mircea_popescu: lmao!
decimation: if those numbers are correct, I wonder why europe is so low?
mircea_popescu: mostly the result of shitty regulation environment and uk people being idiots.
mircea_popescu: decimation europeans are by and large exactly like usians, ie, monolinguistic.
mircea_popescu: with the added disadvantage that they speak obscure languages
decimation: the goldmoney people (who invested in netagio) seem to know what they are doing
decimation: 'monolinguistic' in the sense that their opinion was fixed by harvard ca. 1945?
mircea_popescu: tbh, that 67/27/2.5/0.25 thing pretty much exactly matches the map of real gdp
mircea_popescu: no, in the sense that they simply do not know what happens if it wasn't written in hungarian
decimation: I thought that most germans and french spoke english at least
mircea_popescu: or w/e. danish
mircea_popescu: well, most americans speak french
decimation: heh, 'speak'
mircea_popescu: at least if you mean "most of the people makin > 250k and living in a big city"
decimation: but this very parochialism is why bitcoin ought to be attractive
decimation: 'maybe people outside hungary will use this new trade coin'
decimation: well, at any rate I give the netagio people credit - they unwound in an orderly way when the business wasn't working out

mircea_popescu: i actually walked by there, in the middle of teh night maybe a month or two ago ?

asciilifeform: hdd firmware << 1) snore. revealed definitively in doc. ~month ago, http://log.bitcoin-assets.com//?date=18-01-2015#981436 2) proven as concept in 'linux on hdd head controller' ~2 yrs ago 3) experimented with privately by numerous folks, incl. yours truly, for a few years before 4) mostly a snore, even the best hdd diddle falls down in a raid5 system ☝︎☟︎
assbot: Logged on 18-01-2015 04:50:24; asciilifeform: http://www.spiegel.de/media/media-35661.pdf << the document concerning specific doctored firmware
mircea_popescu: i still don't see the wisdom of allowing diddling of firmware via data bus.
asciilifeform: whizzdom
mircea_popescu: yeah well...
asciilifeform: and now that the multivendor diddlomatic is out, winblows users will get what they so persistently beg for
asciilifeform: (by remaining winblows users, that is)
asciilifeform: it'll be in every ring0 turd on the planet before the year's out, possibly.
asciilifeform: (and yes, virtually all extant hdds are trivially reflashable.)
asciilifeform: of the handful of vendors whose drives i have studied personally, not one used a signature scheme of any kind, for example
asciilifeform: anyone who has ring0 on the box and can send raw ata cmds. can flash.
BingoBoingo: Reflashing firmware is one of those things that should require a goat sacrifice. Fort Mead would smell better.
asciilifeform: if there exists, somewhere, a maker of drives which demand signatures - usg is the first to get a copy of the key, to no one's great surprise
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: what is the reason why it should not be a mask rom ?
asciilifeform: i can see no legit reason to ship a drive with buggy firmware.
asciilifeform: it is done, like the 'anal child' in mircea_popescu's essay, 'because they can get away with it'
asciilifeform: (not news) usg really loves rc5 and rc6 as non-attributable stream ciphers
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: No particular reason. Makes Data recovery stuff easier with PC9000. Also creates a market for that kind of data recovery when firmware makes drive shit the bed.
asciilifeform: if these produce statistical anomalies (distinguishable from white noise) as rc4 is known to, this'd be a good avenue to search for 'mouse droppings' in the wild.

decimation: re: diddling firmware via data bus << in band signaling strikes again
asciilifeform: updatable via the bus for the same reason as everything else: so lusers can update from winblows
asciilifeform: without even having to contemplate opening the chassis, in which, as is known, daemons live
decimation: of course, the drive manufacturers couldn't put a switch or toggle on the front of the computer
asciilifeform: It Would Be Wrong (TM)
decimation: in a similar way that allowing the user to enter their own cryptography via a separate front panel would be wrong
asciilifeform: ^ specifically prohibited in the export control statute
asciilifeform: by name.,
decimation: gee I wonder why
asciilifeform: 'It is not clear how the NSA may have obtained the hard drives' source code.' << wtf
asciilifeform: who needs the source?
asciilifeform didn't
BingoBoingo: So Free world chip foundries are what, 5 to 20 years out?
decimation: asciilifeform: it's impossible to analyze the rom contents of a simple microcontroller
asciilifeform: granted, some of the drives had weird variations on the usual themes (say, dual mips cores with oodles of proprietary coprocessor regs)
asciilifeform: but nothing especially 'martian'
decimation: hell I bet some of them have a flash chip sitting there
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: unless you know something i don't, they're $maxint years out
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: not even the theoretical basis for contemplating such a thing, presently exists.
asciilifeform: decimation: most of'em.
BingoBoingo: <decimation> asciilifeform: it's impossible to analyze the rom contents of a simple microcontroller << Once again PC9000. Russian product that basically lets anyone who can understand the interface su all over the hdd firmware.

BingoBoingo: <asciilifeform> BingoBoingo: connect a ttl-to-serial voltage converter to the convenient debug pins, and have at it << PC9000 largely valued because drive plugs in to IDE or SATA ports in this ISA/(hopefully there's a PCI version by now) card. Boot to card. Diddle at leisure with curses interface. Most operations automated already.
decimation: asciilifeform: what do you think the best method would be to semi-permanently attach a lead to an smt chip pin? I tend to ruin the pad by soldering
decimation: I wonder if there's like a little mini-clamp that you can affix to a pin
asciilifeform: logic analyzers come with 'crocodiles' for single pins but no real use for high-pitched smt
asciilifeform: and no real use for high frequencies
BingoBoingo: So OpenBSD 0.7.2 qt build 17 hours without an OOM kill (returned to 512MB process limit a while back) Presently a June 15th, 2013. Seems the space for bastards to be introduced has shrank enough to make bastards moar manageable.
asciilifeform: gotta solder them or use a properly fitted clip like in the photo
asciilifeform: the soic-8 one pictures costs around $10.

ben_vulpes: 'tis another knob to turn. if instead of rewriting the bastard storage mechanism, one could leverage the network protocol to reduce the number of bastards per wad sent over the wire, it might alleviate some pain.

asciilifeform: unless you're into physics sims
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Blockchain parsing
asciilifeform: the entire ussr never had, quite likely, 1g of ram between it
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: what do you need to do with the blockchain that can't be done 1G at a time ?
asciilifeform: (just picked this number more or less arbitrarily)
BingoBoingo: More RAM makes Electrum server more feasile. Not to run the server for the wallet mind you, but because of the queryable database of blockchain data.
decimation: "asciilifeform doesn't see the appeal of closed source unixen" << I see the appeal of actual people maintaining a unix, closed or open

BingoBoingo: Mtier = Golden toilet company that sells exportable installs of desktop systems for oil rigs et al makes Gnome a centerpiece of their OpenBSD desktop solution.

mircea_popescu: asciilifeform same could have been said about printing, 1600 to 1800.

While this boosts share prices in the short term, as privateers bid up the price in a takeover, there's a huge downstream cost: the company is no longer public. You don't get to profit from it unless you work for it. Each privatized company, or the private equity firm

gribble: http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=hooby | (abstract noun or proper noun) A person, especially one not mentioned by name. Hooby doesn't have one. Who? Hooby! Hooby who? by krom23456 January ...
asciilifeform: PeterL: any fab process that requires clean room is ipso facto irrelevant to the question of 'home fab'
ben_vulpes: ^
ben_vulpes: "garbage fab"
mircea_popescu: it could be clean breadbox.
mircea_popescu: but not room
asciilifeform: clean football-sized compartment is difficult enough in jungle conditions
asciilifeform: ditto high vacuum
PeterL: how big is a chip fab clean room?
mircea_popescu: depends on how big the fab is
asciilifeform: PeterL: factory floor
ben_vulpes: 500 - whole buildings
mircea_popescu: the problem with clean is largely a matter of size. it's easier to keep a large space clean.
asciilifeform: the thing that absolutely must be understood by anyone with any inkling of an interest in the subject is
ben_vulpes: also, depends on the degree of cleanliness required.
mircea_popescu: proof of this being the cosmic space.
asciilifeform: it does no good to take extant ic fab practice and work 'down' ☟︎
asciilifeform: no good at all
asciilifeform: have to reinvent the entire stack.
mircea_popescu: no, im sure this is understood.
PeterL: need to reinvent it at a smaller, cheaper scale?
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: the folks mentioning clean rooms show symptoms of not having understood
asciilifeform: PeterL: emphatically not. not 'smaller cheaper' what-they-do-now.
asciilifeform: entirely different process
mircea_popescu: basically this is quickly becoming a problem of logjammed. "we need a decent-er system design, to make oses on". "yes, for which we nbeed a new chip paradigm". "yes, which really needs better systems design for oses and such". "yes, which..."
asciilifeform: that would have considerably less in common with the existing one than 'cd-r burner' with pressed aluminum disks, or '3d printer' with injection mold press
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 71500 @ 0.00042313 = 30.2538 BTC [-] {2}
mircea_popescu: ironically, it may actually have a lot in common with the cd-r burner.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: hypothetical chip fab experiment does not require new computer.
mircea_popescu: motivation to make it however, does.
asciilifeform: and yes, it would have some resemblance to cd-r
asciilifeform: but realize that cd-r 'cheats' by having existing guide marks
mircea_popescu: i wonder, and bear with my layered ignorance on all matters of import, but i wonder :
mircea_popescu: is there some way to make this actually BE junk ? like, for instance, make an item that prints logic gates on cds, old abandoned cds ?
PeterL: and cd-r moves basically one dimension
mircea_popescu: you can then make an item that looks sort-of like an 1990s "art" installation, except it does logic ?
mircea_popescu: as in, build it from garbage up, exactly how the current stack was built.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: that's actually reminiscent of one idea i looked into - optical logic produced photographically via laser
mircea_popescu: aha!
mircea_popescu: basically, I want to play music ? i can now get a 5 x 6 sheet of polyester, glue cds on it printed with this thing, and plug it in.
mircea_popescu: it .. sort of... kinda plays derpy 8 bit mono something.
asciilifeform: but cd-r blanks ain't it.
asciilifeform: intrinsic spiral pattern in the whole shebang.
mircea_popescu: i just meant, use the items somehow.
asciilifeform: it isn't a universally-addressable polar coordinate laser cutter, if you were wondering.
mircea_popescu: it'd literally be a repurposing of garbage.
mircea_popescu: it isn't, but then again maybe it could be.
mircea_popescu: after all the disk is flat.
mircea_popescu: for that matter ... recall the discussions even here about the purely resisitive musicbox ?
asciilifeform: resistive ?
mircea_popescu: start it from something that's derpy but works, i say, rather than something that's clever, but doesn't.
asciilifeform: well no doubt
asciilifeform: but what was the music box ?

mircea_popescu: in any case, strategically speaking, it will be a lot easier, cheaper and blood-economical to unseat the fiat atrocity supporting the welfare state by destroying the "industrial" paradigm. ☟︎
mircea_popescu: but completely rather than just "progressively".
asciilifeform: but in practice, it has. i have a $$$$$ fpga board gathering dust because realized that it is impossible to implement ddr2 controller (and drive any available memory of reasonable density) without reversing the entire chip
mircea_popescu: why do you want ddr2 is the question ?
mircea_popescu: which is where it ties into "new os"

asciilifeform: much less refine brass
asciilifeform: - that - continues to happen in izhevsk
ben_vulpes: i recall a story from a stephenson book, about a machine that computed with chains run through computing boxes
ben_vulpes: as the chains moved through the boxes, the boxes flipped bits on each link
asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: he had another book where computing happened by specially trained singers belting out gregorian-style chants
ben_vulpes: now, i beg pardon for my ignorance, but could not this model be adapted to the cd rw?
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform the industrial paradigm is not any one particular thing, but the idea that the production of material artefacts is the result of a process not of a will.
asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: this is called 'ladder logic' among factory automation folks
ben_vulpes: myes, i've been brutalized by it.
mircea_popescu: the traditional paradigm was artesanal - objects exists because someone willed them into existence.
mircea_popescu: gotta to revert to that.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: ultimately factory is an artifact of craftsmanship
asciilifeform: so in that sense craftsman never died.
mircea_popescu: in this sense your senator's also your representative.
asciilifeform: l0l
mircea_popescu: right.
mircea_popescu: assbot is pretty rugged isn't he.
mircea_popescu: cool.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform it's not a problem of technology asa much as ideology, you realise. currently, if you ask consumer why X item exists, it's because "that's what the factory makes". "and it has to be sold^H^H^H^H marketed to me". as opposed to, you know, because this is what I WANT.

mike_c: but the difficulty of IaaS is why reselling aws makes sense to me.
mike_c: if you buy a rack in a colo you'll never have the same kind of reliability
mike_c: look at the trouble mpex has had over the years.
jurov: you know, aws itself recommends "to get best reliability, have servers in multiple availabiltiy zones"
jurov: so, again, all but trivial stuff
mike_c: yes, i know. but i don't think you're disagreeing that colo will have lower reliability?
jurov: oh you're arguing reliability? i missed that
mike_c: i am arguing that the service will be more reliable and easier to run on aws than colo rack.
mike_c: it won't be cheaper. for the same reasons.
jurov: which service? if it's phuctor, i can imagine it relies on sole access to fast SSD storage.
jurov: this isn't something given on aws
mike_c: he said its cpu bound. but you can get IOPS provisioned on aws

asciilifeform: at no less than 30-50 usd/mo
asciilifeform: out of me lunch money
mike_c: don't listen to what they say. he is paying them, obviously it's the best option right now.
mike_c: customer's don't know what they want
jurov: l0l
asciilifeform: mike_c: worse than this. 1) i'm paying 2) not getting terribly much, have ~5mil keys that have not been dumped in on account of - elementarily - lack of cpu
mike_c: listen to what they do, not what they say. marketing 101.
mike_c: asciilifeform: so if you could get dedicated instance from jurovvps at non-ruinous cost this would be a good thing.
jurov: so you want me to sell him c3.something aws instance and lie to him it's physical?
asciilifeform: i've said it at least thrice, and will say a fourth time - all s.nsa expenses that are denominated in usd have been de-facto fronted by yours truly
asciilifeform: who has no safe way of converting so much as a bitcent to usd.
mike_c: jurov, no, don't lie. you could sell him exactly what he has now, but in btc, and he'd probably switch.
mike_c: down the road, with a bit of scale, you could sell him dedicated instance without ruinous one-time cost aws imposes
mike_c: and he'd buy that. he would still complain, but he'd pay.
jurov: at that price maybe a seat at my guerrilla home router.. but that one has only a celeron and main computer is too noisy to keep on all time
jurov: but i'll be asking around , we'll see
jurov: btw, dedi aws is not one-time cost. they ask $2/hour if *any* is running in the region
jurov: do your maffs.
mike_c: one-time not the right word. it's $2/hr if any, but not per-box.
mike_c: so if you resold x of them, you could charge $2 per hr / x.
jurov: and you're buying, like 10 of them?
jurov: or anyone here?
asciilifeform: for perspective,
mike_c: jurov is. and selling 1 to ascii, 1 to somebody else, etc.
asciilifeform: i'm renting a physical (yes) box for ~25 usd / mo
asciilifeform: for unrelated purpose
asciilifeform: no hidden costs
asciilifeform: no surcharges for bandwidth
asciilifeform: etc
mike_c: the hidden cost is when it eats shit.

jurov: aws will forward them to yo
jurov: "explain or else"

Reindexing using earlier versions will also not work anymore as a result of this. The block index database will now hold headers for which no block is stored on disk, which earlier versions won’t support.'

asciilifeform: i managed to order a couple of boards from that weirdo board house
asciilifeform: costing almost exactly their weight in gold
asciilifeform: and with >2wk lead time
asciilifeform: curious if what arrives, actually works
asciilifeform: (these were rng boards, which are analogue devices and for which i have means of testing conformance to spec)
asciilifeform: the shop is a very new one ('macrofab') and their ordering gizmo is buggy as all hell
asciilifeform: but finally agreed to take the money...

Adlai: asciilifeform: which concern is (yes) meant to answer?
ben_vulpes: asciilifeform: in what interesting and special ways *does* it suck?
asciilifeform: Adlai: wai wat
asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: generally, you get what you pay for and 'tanstaafl.' the 25 usd box (if they've any left) won't be a 64-core pleasureopteron
Adlai: "i'm renting a physical *(yes)* box" <- as in, "have i visited the box personally and confirmed that it occupies the same reality as me? _yes_"
ben_vulpes: asciilifeform: i did learn how to read a datasheet in the mines.
ben_vulpes: just 'cause this one has css doesn't change the selection process.
asciilifeform: Adlai: if it's a vm, it passes all known tests for physicality (incl. timing) and the hypothetical fakers should not settle for the small change of running a hosting co., but go into malware
ben_vulpes: ty nevertheless
Adlai: asciilifeform: ok, $25/mo was seeming awfully cheap for a datacenter where customers visit their inmates
asciilifeform: now, despite fact that 'you get what you pay,' the sc4mz0rz who try to herd common folks into 'enterprisey' golden toilet service contracts are still scum
asciilifeform: but they've largely succeeded in destroying the 'golden median' between goldentoilet and vm crapola
nanotube: <mircea_popescu> nanotube ^ can two nicks have same gpg fingerprint ? <- nope, gribble checks upon registration if the key is already in use.
Adlai theoretically should migrate scalpl to somesuch bare minimum hosting... but the current box hasn't broken yet, so there's nothing to fix!
asciilifeform: that being, modest 'grey haired' boxes (as old as p3) with a modest mirrored raid, mechanical disks, half a gb of ram
Adlai: half a gb!
asciilifeform: what.
thestringpuller: that used to be a lot back in da day
asciilifeform: unless you're in the physics model business, that's -still- enough for any sane application
Adlai: it's enough for my development bots
Adlai: yep
mircea_popescu: nanotube well somehow mike_c found a case.
asciilifeform: Adlai: boxes that -i personally- could visit where i live start around ~1k usd/mo
asciilifeform: at the lowest possible end.

asciilifeform: Adlai: how come you don't use 'save-lisp-and-die' ?
Adlai: some mix of: lazyness, the desire to periodically load my code into a fresh image, and ansi cl portability
asciilifeform: also why exactly are the separate instances running as separate unix processes
asciilifeform: (rather than sbcl threads)
asciilifeform: sbcl supports proper (native) threading for ages now, iirc
Adlai: "Tasks: 27, 90 thr"
asciilifeform: that doesn't answer why it needs >1 sbcl running
Adlai: it's 3 images for 4 bots, the two on the same exchange share an image; it's currently *possible* to run multiple on multiple exchanges from the same image, see 'lazyness etc'
Adlai: also nice to have some level of isolation if i royally screw up one image
Adlai: swap is there as a failsafe, it ran just fine 101 days without it, but i'd rather not take chances if things go crazy while i'm asleep
