ben_vulpes: i had a massive change of heart at lunch today
asciilifeform read that earlier today, but had a mindfuck and thought it was about perkin elmer
ben_vulpes: i am officially in favor of every welfare and spending plan in america
cazalla: asciilifeform, something i can pursue next weekend i guess
asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: 'heightening the contradictions' ?
ben_vulpes: the more distracted by sexual inequality, gender inequality, income inequality, and the more attention they're paying to the management of the epic bureaucracy so built, the less time and energy will be devoted to the impending conflicts.
ben_vulpes: more along the lines of draining the battery, asciilifeform.
ben_vulpes: universal healthcare? fuck yes!

asciilifeform: tested the result, too
asciilifeform: should take about 20 min. on a typical box, to build the WHOLE ORCHESTRA
asciilifeform: incl. compilers.

mircea_popescu: lalala
asciilifeform: gentlemen, start yer enginez
decimation: I need to download one from amazon
trinque: bravo
trinque: asciilifeform: am meeting up with ben_vulpes and other friends tonight, and I'll bring along the pogo
mircea_popescu: ah how splendid.
asciilifeform: the cookbook is brutally terse, if any of it isn't obvious plz ask while i'm awake
mircea_popescu: danielpbarron manual asap!
decimation: asciilifeform: was this run on your gentoo box?
asciilifeform: aha
asciilifeform: it ought to run on any reasonable unix though
asciilifeform: uses nothing local but gcc
mircea_popescu: anyone know like a nude housekeeper service in dc or something ?
trinque: asciilifeform: I tried the crossdev compile of bitcoind and got as far as boost hell regarding bzip2
decimation: ja but does it depend on particular gcc to bootstrap?
asciilifeform: trinque: note that bitcoind is not included in this yet
trinque: but have working cross compilation tooling otherwise, which farts executibles agreeable to the pogo
trinque: yep
asciilifeform: decimation: i only tried it on 4.8.x
asciilifeform: decimation: if you have something unusually archaic, may have problems
decimation: k.
asciilifeform: somebody at least build this plz.
asciilifeform: even if no pogo.
trinque: asciilifeform: ben_vulpes and I shall shortly
asciilifeform: you will get a kernel image (also contains rootfs)
decimation: I'll try on my rhel6 vm
trinque: "hack night"
asciilifeform: neato
asciilifeform: the Gb ethernet, 3Gb/s sata, sd card, usb - work
asciilifeform: have not yet tested led or button.
asciilifeform: i also eliminated all the standard crud that kernel wants to have by default - support for usb hid, mice, keyboards, framebuffers, and anything whatsoever whose purpose i did not know
asciilifeform: gone.

asciilifeform: one little warning - 'buildroot' is dumb as a rock, you will have to 'make clean all' just about every time
asciilifeform: (every time you change anything)
asciilifeform: doesn't nuke the compiler though, iirc
asciilifeform: a rebuild is about 6 min. on my box.
mircea_popescu: Probably more. << i don't see wut more.
asciilifeform: for those who don't know - 'buildroot' does -not- use your local crossdev tooling, should you have any
asciilifeform: it builds own world.
mircea_popescu: trinque / ben_vulpes hack a uboot module while at it!
asciilifeform: ah and this thing builds uboot
asciilifeform: but i have not tested the one it makes
asciilifeform: i am using the one i made.
trinque: mircea_popescu: what should it do?
mircea_popescu: not necessarily one we'll use, just to get the hang of it
mircea_popescu: it should compile a pogo bitcoind
trinque: I installed uboot on my pogo already
mircea_popescu: nono.
mircea_popescu: bitcoind as ubut module
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i thought about this
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform aha!
trinque: interesting, I'll have to look into precisely what that'd mean
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: it isn't a particularly great substitute for a unix, unfortunately
mircea_popescu: which is why i say trinque :)
trinque: lol
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform huge step forward from all the other people way in the back.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: missing any kind of i/o scheduler, or, more importantly, task slicer
asciilifeform: (scheduler)
asciilifeform: (bitcoind is threaded)
trinque: yeah we'll look at it
asciilifeform: or dos port would have been simple.
mircea_popescu: bitcoin is, but the pogo is single core neh ?
asciilifeform: aha
mircea_popescu: so then not THAT big of a deal
asciilifeform: this is roughly close in sweat level to an msdos port
trinque: I'm about certain this is beyond the scope of this evening or one six pack of beer
trinque: :D
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform who knows what whiz kidz come up with.
trinque: uboot is basically grub for this thing, yeah?

asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i certainly intend to sit bitcoin down on the metal. on possibly even this machine. but will probably use ada's spark bare metal for it.
asciilifeform: and not today.
asciilifeform: trinque: sorta like grub.
mircea_popescu: wait, ada to compile a c environment ?!
asciilifeform: neh
asciilifeform: for the final solution.
mircea_popescu: yeah well, at the chestnut cafe, that.
asciilifeform: aha.
mircea_popescu: trinque grub doesn't actually prep anything, just runs it
asciilifeform: grub does init surprisingly much
asciilifeform: (iirc it can even set up x64 mode if asked)
trinque: mircea_popescu: this is likely out of my league
asciilifeform: but grub is x86-centric

mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i've never done that much with it.
trinque: when it comes to how it might poke storage, no idea
trinque: is there some way to bolt a program directly to a kernel?
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: 'menstrual extraction' ?
trinque: seems like you end up with what asciilifeform already has
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i thinbk just plain weird.
mircea_popescu: trinque you could make it a kernel module
asciilifeform also considered this
asciilifeform did not like the lack of process separation inherent in it
asciilifeform: wedged bitcoind - wedged machine
asciilifeform has been thinking about this for a long time.
mircea_popescu: yeah it's not optimal, but he wanted to bolt it.
trinque: I'd have to do some reading before I'm sure what I'd want
mircea_popescu: nevertheless... eventually the only thing bitcoind can be is an os.
asciilifeform: aha.
asciilifeform: i'd go further
asciilifeform: ... a device.
mircea_popescu: i dunno i'd go for that
mircea_popescu: you may have to change it in a warzone.
asciilifeform: easy to swap device, no ?
mircea_popescu: no. because you don't have a fab.
mircea_popescu: making the code carved in stone is imo a bad move.
asciilifeform: i didn't say 'custom ic'
asciilifeform: i said 'device'
trinque: what's the derpiest unix like kernel this thing would build on?
mircea_popescu: then it's an os.
asciilifeform: as in, a box that isn't used for anything else.
mircea_popescu: oh. well that's what it being an os means he ?
asciilifeform: and custom si doesn't imply 'set in stone' necessarily
asciilifeform: could very easily be a bitcoind-optimized cpu arch.
asciilifeform: (with support for bounds checking and other adaisms)
mircea_popescu: that, sure.
asciilifeform: but this is for after the war.
mircea_popescu: once you got the os, optimize hw for it.
mircea_popescu: no, actually, this will be right in the middle of the war.
asciilifeform: if i make it to the middle - i do it. otherwise, trying to leave enough of a record here for the next fella.

asciilifeform: decimation: because this is a buildrootism and has nothing to do with me
nubbins`: <+cazalla> while i await danielpbarron's response, anyone want to suggest why the pogo flashes green after following his guide after a reboot? <<< i fucked up setting some of the fw_setenv parameters. you'll prolly need to serial into it, next time use fw_printenv to double check all your boot cmds before you commit
asciilifeform: you can printenv from uboot console

asciilifeform: if you have serial port (or the netconsole thing set up)
asciilifeform: likewise setenv
asciilifeform: -and-
asciilifeform: saveenv
decimation: asciilifeform: it's gcc-4.6 on redhat
nubbins`: cazalla it was something like fw_setenv "boot_xyz='abc'" vs fw_setenv boot_xyz="abc"
asciilifeform: (yes, flashes changes from in itself)
decimation: shit no nevermind I was in the wrong terminal and accidently built on osx :)
nubbins`: saveenv wat? haha, i booted into debian to fw_setenv ;/
asciilifeform: anyway, the two most urgent items on the agenda for this thing are:
asciilifeform: 1) freezing the sourceballs in time
asciilifeform: (virginal buildroot loads them -from the net- and afaik does not check signatures)
asciilifeform: 2) study the package system. the dependencies of bitcoind would ideally be added as packages
mircea_popescu: well you can have it load form your local machine.
asciilifeform: (source packages. there are no other kinds in this)
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: buildroot builds and uses own toolchain, in a kind of jail. so it is very convenient to have the whole thing build inside it
asciilifeform: and ultimately stronger, because nothing snarfed in from the os
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i mean, you can trivially make -from the net- = localhost
asciilifeform: aha that yes.
asciilifeform: is what i was speaking of.
mircea_popescu: or w/e convenient trusted host
mircea_popescu: if you wish to save the set you used and sign it, i'll host the lot
asciilifeform: the dl directory
asciilifeform: if it has a package, it won't load again

asciilifeform: for the armv5 os, that is
asciilifeform: for the build, it uses local machine's tar.
asciilifeform: busybox, to those new to it, is a unix util userland in more or less 1 executable.

decimation: "In short, there are two companies calling themselves “Arduino” at the moment. One, Arduino LLC was founded by [Massimo Banzi], [David Cuartielles], [David Mellis], [Tom Igoe] and [Gianluca Martino] in 2009, runs the website arduino.cc, and has been directing and releasing the code that makes it all work. Most of these folks had been working together on what would become the Arduino project since as early as 2005."
asciilifeform: almost as good as apple v apple
decimation: "The other “Arduino” used to be called Smart Projects and was the manufacturing arm of the project founded and run by [Gianluca Martino]. Smart Projects changed their name to Arduino SRL in November 2014. (A “Società a responsabilità limitata” is one form of Italian limited-liability company.) They have been a major producer of Arduino boards from the very beginning and recently registered the domain arduino.org."

asciilifeform: the traditional bitcoind (see code) asked a peer to attempt connect-back on 8333
Chillum: some routers automatically open a port when they see a DCC command on sent from an internal computer on an IRC port

asciilifeform: yet survive.
mircea_popescu: exactly this.
mircea_popescu: i participated in a bdsm chan for a few days, it was painful.
Adlai: generally the participants of such institutions only attend due to coercion, whether physical or implied
mircea_popescu: 90% of lines were "hello x", 90% of the remainder "so how's it going". maybe 1 in 4 hello-handshakes succeeded, and less than 1 in 100 went past 2nd pass.
mircea_popescu: the general depth of conversation mirrored quite exactly the office.

mircea_popescu: "is luser luser because on windoze, or is on windoze because luser ?"
Adlai: symbiotic convergence idiocy
mircea_popescu: this should be a term of art.
mircea_popescu: and i mean... the fact that us young adults score worse than anyone else is not a direct product. they worked to get there : the school's so dumb, why learn ; the kids aren't learning anyway why not make it dumber... 30 years later in this process the fucking mit grads can't make a flashlight
mircea_popescu: they ALL own fleshlights tho.
Adlai: Made in China™

Adlai: s/i/oniz/
mircea_popescu: umm... patronizarchy ?
Adlai: yeh, rule by the patrons. those who can afford to patronize, as opposed to - serfs
mircea_popescu: if this worked teh us'd be numero uno.
mircea_popescu: rule by dude farmer is not functionable sadly.
Adlai: last i checked, farmer = serf
mircea_popescu: dude farmer is a term of art from back in the day the us mattered.
mircea_popescu: ie, rich guy back east, went west to start a farm, sucked at it.
nubbins`: <+asciilifeform> mircea_popescu: many folks use mac addrs in routing tables <<< this
Adlai: doesn't sound like a Patron of the Arts to me
mircea_popescu: patron-client relationship is what i tought you meant, off the ancient post-imperial and late-imperial model.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: "is luser luser because on windoze, << the older version of this was, iirc, 'do styes make pigs' ?
mircea_popescu: but anyway, even wioth the arts, the distinction holds : the patron has no particular taste, merely money and friends.

Chillum: same password on each one?
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i can think of an alternate hypothesis about the flashlight thing
mircea_popescu: probably a few, including videofraud . but tell ?
asciilifeform: 'I have had a chance to observe quite a few companies in the U.S. from the inside, and have spotted a certain constancy in the staffing profile. At the top, there is a group of highly compensated senior lunch-eaters. They tend to spend all of their time pleasing each other in various ways, big and small. They often hold advanced degrees in disciplines such as Technical Schmoozing and Relativistic Bean-counting. They are obsess
asciilifeform: ive on the subject of money, and cultivate a posh country set atmosphere, even if they are just one generation out of the coal mines. Ask them to solve a technical problem — and they will politely demur, often taking the opportunity to flash their wit with a self-deprecating joke or two. ... The natives at the top always try to standardize the job descriptions and lower the pay scale of the immigrants at the bottom, playing
asciilifeform: them against each other, while trying to portray themselves as super-achieving entrepreneurial mavericks who can't be pinned down to a mere set of marketable skills.'

asciilifeform: can't say for sure. but entirely possible
Chillum: nubbins`: technology!
mircea_popescu: if he could act that well i'd know his name.
nubbins`: :D
mircea_popescu: srsly now. this theory of yours would be perhaps appealing had i not spent any time on a set.
mircea_popescu: but i have, and i tell you... people who can act are RARE.
nubbins`: Chillum: a stock pogo will spread cheeks thusly: curl -k "https://root:ceadmin@[PogoplugIPAddress]/sqdiag/HBPlug?action=command&command=dropbear%20start";
nubbins`: and yes, same root pw on each one :o
mircea_popescu: not, "superhot blonde rare". that's 1 in 100. people who can act are in 1 in 10k
asciilifeform: does sprezzatura really call for top-notch general-purpose acting skill ?
mircea_popescu: and THEN they can only act in "certain spaces".
mircea_popescu: yes, to the degree it'd be depicted there, this man is an oscar winner.
Chillum: nubbins`: wow, what a slutty device
nubbins`: inorite.
mircea_popescu: go through webcasts to see how people deal with this normally.
nubbins`: there's also a built-in "request unlock from pogo" thing
nubbins`: think iphone unlock
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform notice : no snicker. for instance.
nubbins`: and then there's serial :D
asciilifeform: nubbins`: notice how nobody here bothered with the 'request unlock' thing or even knows if it ever worked
asciilifeform: because wtf why
Chillum: I think that sometimes companies intentionally make their devices rootable because they know hobbyists will buy boxes of them if they can root it
mircea_popescu: ^ Chillum this makes sense, and it's why this is probably happening here
asciilifeform: Chillum: this particular item is an oddity in this regard, because it is very clearly a loss-leader
nubbins`: asciilifeform i tried it with one of my pogos
mircea_popescu: nevertheless, ironically, this item was bought as a loss leader, and so, it would specifically NOT be wanted to be used this way.
asciilifeform: (priced substantially below cost, in all likelihood)
mircea_popescu: my explanation is that because of the standardization of everything, the makers just made them "as they're made" ie prevailing bs (business standards) and the buyers bought and marketed them "As they're marketed"
nubbins`: asciilifeform you log into website, "activate" pogo, then can enable ssh login via website
mircea_popescu: resulting in a transfer of value from the dudes to us.
nubbins`: it's about as gaping as it sounds
nubbins`: TBH i think they did include rootability as a hobbyist bonus, AND they made way, way too many
asciilifeform: it is interesting that the actual contents of the can has been shrinking continuously over the years
mircea_popescu: nubbins` we can now just capture the packets and "activate" any pogo anywhere on the basis of another pogo can't we.
Chillum: they should just have a physical "root access" switch on the box. Leaving backdoors for people to find is reckless
nubbins`: these were probably dumped to the surplus people en masse 4 years ago
asciilifeform: for instance, there was at one point a pogo entirely like this one but 256M.
asciilifeform: same cost.
mircea_popescu: Chillum amusingly this is what asciilifeform wanted to do.
asciilifeform: and, the successor to this (out of print) machine is quite similar but no sata.
nubbins`: maybe just no sata connector 8)
mircea_popescu: lol
asciilifeform: nubbins`: that one is gone too
asciilifeform: nubbins`: speaking of 'pink pogo' here
nubbins`: ah
nubbins` owns a synth that has MIDI in/out capabilities baked into cpu, but mfg didn't waste the extra $2 on MIDI ports
asciilifeform: this is rather reminiscent of how the famous linksys wrt54g hyper-bestseller slowly shrank and shrank, from 16 and then 8 and then 4 (even 2!) MB of ram, linux could no longer be used on it
asciilifeform: and the product faded away
mircea_popescu: i had one of those
asciilifeform: -everyone- has one of those
nubbins`: open the thing up, wire up a couple resistors and DIN5 jacks, and you've got a full-featured midi voice
asciilifeform: in a cellar somewhere
mircea_popescu: sysadmin at the time was "you don't buy "a router". write this down : linksys wrt54g"
