trinque: I mean this assumes whatever sub-groups within the thing haven't been mining on their botnets for years
trinque: I don't buy that either
trinque: there are guys inside the beast not nearly as foolish as that Force guy
asciilifeform: trinque: if you mean 'botnet' in the traditional sense of the word, run the numbers.
asciilifeform: (botnet mining today is a fart in the wind)
trinque: who said today
scoopbot_revived: US Poultry and Egg Prices Headed To The Moon http://qntra.net/2015/05/us-poultry-and-egg-prices-headed-to-the-moon/
asciilifeform: and was a year ago. and two. and three.
trinque: I said "for years"
mircea_popescu: o.O the stuff qntra newses ?!
trinque: that's it; the price of eggs and poultry is going to do the USA in for good
jurov: they will import (unwashed! what horror) eggs from elsewhere
jurov: and find it surpprising for qntra, too
BingoBoingo: Things that adversely impact the utility of the USD is totally qntra
jurov: so... bitcoin price per egg is expected to stay constant?
danielpbarron: !up maxwell
jurov: oh i get it, it's litecoin
BingoBoingo: Sure
mod6: <+mircea_popescu> asciilifeform aws can definitely not be part of our canonical stuff huh. << agreed. i'll continue to get my sea-legs with what I've got so far, but what we end up supporting in the end will be a gentoo on a bare-rails environment. unless any objections?
asciilifeform: bare-rails ?
mod6: real hardware.
mod6: non-virtualized.
mircea_popescu: i dun think so
danielpbarron: maxwell, didn't you register a key under the nickname mxtm?
asciilifeform: strong's masterpiece, among many other useful things, explains how to make optical fibers (by hand, naturally)

seraminta: wow
seraminta: u 4chan peice of frick
seraminta: jk
seraminta: i'll read that now tho
trinque: BingoBoingo: then you chant "bitcoin is bitcoin" in the mirror each night
BingoBoingo: seraminta: Nah, not shoe on head for camera, shoe on head to teach balance and focus.
BingoBoingo: trinque: yes, while looking at agricultural price trends for the past two decades
mircea_popescu: trinque and sagavin comes to enlarge your bollocks ?
trinque: lol, yes he comes to increase your block size
seraminta: is this to like
seraminta: "mine" bitcoins
seraminta: or
BingoBoingo: seraminta: It is to increase your ability to say no to bad ideas
seraminta: what
seraminta: i dont understand how to lke
seraminta: get them
danielpbarron: there may be miners in here, but it's not limited to that
trinque: that is actually a very apt description of the medicinal effect of #b-a

seraminta: do what yall do
seraminta: what do yall do for it?
williamdunne: Buy em'
danielpbarron: you read the log for 6 months to a year
williamdunne: Work for em'
williamdunne: Take pictures of your tits for em'
trinque: seraminta: before trying to acquire bitcoins you will want to educate yourself on both them and the technical considerations around keeping them
trinque: the logs here are indeed the best way to do that
seraminta: can yall just educate me on how to get that money tho....
trinque: as are the various associated blogs
mxtm: well you can trade for it
mxtm: for traditional fiat currencies
mxtm: or you can get paid in it in exchange for services, goods, etc
seraminta: what do u do for them?
trinque: seraminta: what interests you in them?
mxtm: i'm more of the trader type
seraminta: im a fan of money
danielpbarron: seraminta, you have been given many suggestions; repeating yourself will not yield a positive outcome
trinque: seraminta: what's money?
seraminta: what the hell dan?
seraminta: yall are being so vague
williamdunne: seraminta: How do you earn dollars? Would you like us to specify every position available on the McDonalds' team?
seraminta: okay but just by saying
seraminta: oh u trade for them
seraminta: is vague
seraminta: like
seraminta: trade what
danielpbarron: if you straight up just want some coin, I can sell it to you in person; just hand me cash

copypaste: You'll get a lot of clicks from that from our users most likely.
mircea_popescu: anyway, ima add more etc, but doesn't need to bother you.
copypaste: Cool
mircea_popescu: o also! anyone with a scooped blog can make himself a banner, hit me up with it.
seraminta: im in connecticut
seraminta: why
williamdunne: Because different countries have different trading systems..

trinque: from there click links, or ask questions here
trinque: and read the logs.
mxtm: seraminta: well then ofc you can just do cash in person w/ danielpbarron here
mxtm: cash in mail is also a good option especially for "off the books" type stuff
BingoBoingo: Station wagon full of cash also works for larger purchases
trinque: lol
mxtm: and or a large box of cash
mxtm eyes the boxes in the closet he would never be able to fill
trinque: or a box of cash within which there are several boxes of cash
mxtm: i have all of these priority mail boxes and free tape now
mxtm: i want to use them
BingoBoingo: Nah, station wagons has always been the premier unit of data transfer and what is money, but data on who doesn't suck
mxtm: semen also transfers lots of data quickly
williamdunne: BingoBoingo: In some places delivery services are still the most cost effective way of transporting web data
BingoBoingo: mxtm: Not really. only encoded with 4 letter character set. T, C, A, G
williamdunne: I can remember a while ago a calculation being done that it was cheaper to have a 120gb SSD filled with data shipped to Canada than it was to download onto your existing drive
mxtm: lol
williamdunne: Including the cost of the SSD itself ofc

mircea_popescu: danielpbarron you know you gotta let people publish their own pics.
seraminta: did u post that dude lol
danielpbarron: i took that pic, it is my own. but i'll keep that in mind for future reference
seraminta: bye
copypaste: lol
copypaste: One moment please danielpbarron.
mircea_popescu: danielpbarron and since we're doing future references : you don't want a 20% of empty sky and cut calves. ☟︎
mircea_popescu: the human body has some permissible cuts, and the calves aren't it. if you don't cut the neck, the next is the torso, between lower rib and belly button, and if you don't cut that you don't cut anything.

mircea_popescu: random lulz : in the 70s, romania was doing a very argnetine-like autarky thing. making local whisky, local everything. including local gin, which was made at covasna,
mircea_popescu: and consequently the brand name was covagin
cazalla: doesn't seem anyone wants to bang #3
copypaste: might just be a bad picture of 3

assbot: Logged on 13-05-2015 21:32:00; asciilifeform: this fella used to be the 'genuine article'
mircea_popescu: there's something about old men.
asciilifeform: aha. same dynamic.
asciilifeform: (how old is schneier ?)
mircea_popescu: "Be wary of one-time pads and other crypto unicorns" vbwghahgahaha
mircea_popescu: o god almighty.
asciilifeform: to be fair, the item under review was a prng turd written for turdroid etc.
mircea_popescu: you know, these schmucks have nothing of the quality of schmuckdom in the soviet times.
mircea_popescu: just as many poltrons then, but really, a lot more style.
mircea_popescu: now it's just... blunt. vulgar.
asciilifeform: what can i say, these folks have more distance between selves and the cultured times.
mircea_popescu: i guess.
asciilifeform: the talmudists had it right, in their picture of wisdom being at peak (in their cosmography, in the era of moses) and fading away monotonically since
mircea_popescu: i dun think so.
asciilifeform: well, wrong about details, but basic idea
mircea_popescu: mebbe. tho i dun think so. not that i have any serious basis for it.
mircea_popescu: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=13-05-2015#1130904 << dude. it's the pump phase of a pump and dump scam. what do you expect ? there is no connection between the depicted elements under the surface. ☝︎
assbot: Logged on 13-05-2015 21:45:12; asciilifeform: 'By the time its chips were to be embedded into Internet of Things (IoT) devices, 21 projected its cost to produce 1 BTC could be as low as $7.45.' << somebody does not grasp difficulty factor ?
mircea_popescu: it's like you're expecting to find flesh under a stand-up cut-out of angelina jolie.
asciilifeform: is it entirely inconceivable that they are in fact churning out miners ?
asciilifeform: how this act is financed is a secondary consideration. for all i know, they are whoring out their daughters to pay for it
mircea_popescu: i've yet to see any tripwire move.
mircea_popescu: maybe they're doing it in supersecret, but so far, on the balance of intelligence, it's just gift of gab.
asciilifeform: afaik no one alleged that this particular set is plugged in yet
mircea_popescu: has to be made.
mircea_popescu: you know, in a plant.
mircea_popescu: designed. you know, by someone.
mircea_popescu: etc.
asciilifeform: allegation was, by intel
mircea_popescu: where ?
asciilifeform: at one of their fabs
mircea_popescu: intel has a finite number of discrete fabs
mircea_popescu: they can't produce anything at "one of the fabs"
asciilifeform wasn't there, doesn't know at which in particular
mircea_popescu: there's oregon, arizona new mexico, some secret and some offshoire locations
williamdunne: The trilema rotator works on neither of my computers :/
mircea_popescu: williamdunne what happens ?
williamdunne: One one computer, nothing
mircea_popescu: see page source ?
williamdunne: On the other I get a very quick flash of the no image logo, which then disappears
williamdunne: Yeah I'll check it
mircea_popescu: should be something like $ curl http://trilema.com/banners/rotator.php

asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: quite possibly they read the 2013 #b-a thread and took the advice of baking a hashing engine into an existing system-on-chip design
williamdunne: One thing:
williamdunne: 03:11:47.553 The character encoding of the HTML document was not declared. The document will render with garbled text in some browser configurations if the document contains characters from outside the US-ASCII range. The character encoding of the page must be declared in the document or in the transfer protocol.1 rotator.php

mircea_popescu: yeah well. it's supposed to go into a diff page, with its own declarations, and it uses no glyphs.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform do you understand the qty of engineering involved.
williamdunne: Source is:
williamdunne: <img class="hlfcdjdaavkkxwcvfwse" src="http://trilema.com/banners/bitbet-berkshire.png">
mircea_popescu: yes, they'll have this in five years. the effort required to do it in a year ? you'd hear.
williamdunne: Interesting, should work
mircea_popescu: williamdunne weird class ?!
williamdunne: Yeah, thats the one I'm getting
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: mine is ~450 lines of verilog
mircea_popescu: it seems like your browser supplies it somehow ? the source has no class spec.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform your embeddable bitcoin miner ?
asciilifeform: it isn't the most optimal in the world (far from it) and a 'serious', 'grown man's' miner oughta be designed at discrete logic level
asciilifeform: but the overall complexity of the act of mining is not high
asciilifeform mined his first, and for long time, only bitcoin, on an fpga for which he wrote a very elementary miner, as an exercise
asciilifeform: many other folks did this
asciilifeform: most of them, i will point out, long before i did
mircea_popescu awaits the 500 verilog lines gpu and the 2200 lines cpu to be released by intel soon=ish, totally busting the market.
mircea_popescu: it'll even fit in heads.
asciilifeform: stas@humanoid ~ $ wc -l mips.v
asciilifeform: 359 mips.v
trinque: williamdunne: you using adblock?
williamdunne: trinque: I am
trinque: 'tis an ad
trinque: :D
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: it won't be busting any markets. because 'how world works' (TM)
mircea_popescu: and so here we go, full circle.
mircea_popescu: trinque you figure it actually blocks an image wrapped in an url ? that's almost all of em ?
williamdunne: Yeah youre right, its adblock causing it
williamdunne: mircea_popescu: Rotator and banner are probably both keywords
mircea_popescu: sheit!
asciilifeform: for the benefit of log readers, i will point out again, that a sha256 hashing circuit is dwarfed, complexity-wise, by all but the simplest 'homework' cpu, gpu, whatever other ic product
mircea_popescu: copypaste pls to use http://trilema.com/cutekittens/tittydrip.php instead!
assbot: ... ( http://bit.ly/1e2zBge )
asciilifeform: they only appear complicated because 1) folks slept through school 2) lack of popular access to chip fab tech translates to lack of interest in even the most elementary aspects of engineering
mircea_popescu: williamdunne does that work ?
williamdunne: mircea_popescu: Yeah they don't trigger it
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform mining is not just sha 256 hashing
mircea_popescu: copypaste because apparently adblocking assholery.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: there is also a counter, yes
asciilifeform: big fat full-adder.
asciilifeform: takes up all of 1% of the gates
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform miner without a node ? miner without any security w/e ?
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: 'once the rockets go up, who cares where they come down; that's not my department, said werhner von braun...'
mircea_popescu: yes well, 90% of a job is not a job.
asciilifeform: the miscreants from earlier thread, with the cable boxes ?
asciilifeform: betcha plan is to have'em all hang off one node
asciilifeform: link rsa'd
asciilifeform: (at least, in outgoing direction)
mircea_popescu: will be fun to ddos then.
asciilifeform: if cable boxes, won't sit on public net
mircea_popescu: im sure nukes will help them keep it up.
asciilifeform: by 'hanging off one node', meant that the device issued to schmucks will not include a node
asciilifeform: (why should it)
mircea_popescu: for reliability.
asciilifeform: but merely the minimal iron necessary to getwork() from usg and return results in a form that is unusable to mitmers
copypaste: mircea_popescu: Do you wanat it put up now?
mircea_popescu: sure.
copypaste: OK. Give me a few minutes :)

asciilifeform: i'm still curious, who is going to outcompete a hypothetical usg telecom monopoly inserting miners into cable boxes etc. and on what parameter ? cost of energy ? nope - schmucks pay. cost of manufacture? again, schmucks pay, indirectly. which is it ?
mircea_popescu: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=13-05-2015#1130961 << i have internet here, no magic box. had it in romania too, they offered me the magic box. i didn't want it , the woman was in shock ☝︎

trinque: mircea_popescu: yeh tittydrip works :D
asciilifeform: ^ i think jurov was speaking of 'tv-style' interface where schmuck is not aware that he is using the net, doesn't sit around hunting for warez, etc. but just sits with ir remote & drools
asciilifeform: it is what folks pay for when they subscribe to 'cable tv'
mircea_popescu: oh, people still get tv ?
mircea_popescu has no idea about any of that market.
asciilifeform: (which, where i live, has long ago gone packetized, yes)
mircea_popescu: afaik it's like old style phone service
mircea_popescu: you get it with the internet and nobody uses it
asciilifeform: as discussed earlier, somewhere north of 20 million u.s. subscribers just for 'comcast'
mircea_popescu: i guess gramas use it or something
asciilifeform: and they use it.
asciilifeform: every restaurant in d.c. area, for instance, has it
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform 20mn users x 20 watts = doubling the current hash power. /me is unimpressed.
copypaste: mircea_popescu: just a warning
copypaste: trilema.com is using a self-signed cert
copypaste: it won't work correectly because most of our requests are served over HTTPS
asciilifeform: why it even has https
mircea_popescu: copypaste uh it shouldn't have https at all ? my references are all to http
mircea_popescu: you rewrite them ?!
copypaste: mircea_popescu: No, but most browsers won't allow HTTP in HTTPS pages.
mircea_popescu: ugh
copypaste: I can keep it at HTTP but "Content Security Policy" in Firefox and Chrome will block it.
mircea_popescu: shit.
copypaste: If it's on an HTTPS page. It'll only work on HTTP pages.
copypaste: Yeah.
mircea_popescu: listen, what if i push the image out as base64 ?
mircea_popescu: then no link
copypaste: I'm not sure I understand your proposal
copypaste: I'm linking via iframe like this
mircea_popescu: lemme have it changed, a second, then you see.
copypaste: OK

assbot: ... ( http://bit.ly/1e2AO7j )
mircea_popescu: has no references
copypaste: It won't work with the iframe method. I would need the source code of that file and run it on 8chan's server
copypaste: Because the iframe still refers to the plain HTTP trilema.com :(
mircea_popescu: ah i see
mircea_popescu: yeah but then how do i add/remove banners.
copypaste: Yeah exactly.
mircea_popescu: well what the shit.
copypaste: If you have any domain with a valid HTTPS cert you could use that
copypaste: And it would just work
mircea_popescu: i don't, because i don't use pki.
mircea_popescu: it's pretty well despised here.
mircea_popescu: can you give me a ftp user in a subdir on your server and run it from there ?
copypaste: I see, it makes sense. Unfortunately browser vendors have been very difficult about this lately.
mircea_popescu: of course they have. usg wants pki everywhere.
copypaste: Sure, that will work. You'll lose out on some stats stuff though that you could get by running it on your server
copypaste: e.g. how many impressions

mircea_popescu: trinque essentially, an application of "bitcoin is bitcoin" is what sunk gavin. they still mostly can't believe it happened, but it did. it will again. in practice, you either implement a broken, pared down version of bitcoin, in which case bitcoin defeats you, or else you implement a correct version, in which case... you've implemented bitcoin.
mircea_popescu: this thing cuts a lot more universally than one'd reasonably expect, and quite scarily in its degree.
mircea_popescu: "you can't halfass bitcoin" is the thing. which property is why i was musing that it's more like a force of nature than anything else.
mircea_popescu: displays exactly the feynman property of "nature".

menahem: i don't know whats up - but links to selections aren't working for me. they were at first, but not anymore.

copypaste: i did ;)
mod6: this is bizzare. i can only get the ssh keys to work /after/ I set a password on the user acount on the instnace (in /etc/shadow). if the user doesn't have a password set, just asks for a pw when connecting. (gentoo uclibc hardened) am i missing something obvious?

mircea_popescu: maybe because bitcoin doesn't run right on windows, who knows.
decimation: it does seem likely that someone in the world has an interest in cuckolding infrastructure
menahem: decimation i was told that canadian gov employees were mining bitcoin. however, when i asked about pools and block rewards, they had no idea what I was talking about. so... it definitely seems highly unlikely.
cazalla: i vaguely recollect someone was using the machines at the ABC (gov owned tv channel) to mine bitcoin back around 2011
decimation: it's possible someone is using infrastructure for a private purpose, but I can't imagine it is officially sanctioned
cazalla: http://www.smh.com.au/technology/technology-news/secret-money-abc-virtual-currency-racket-probe-20110623-1ggp6.html there we go.. so technically australia gov first and bestest miner

copypaste: They don't allow HTTP content on HTTPS pages anymore.

copypaste: It started as Tinyboard.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform in this context, a chan is a type of forum, used most famously by 2/4chan

decimation: but no drug wars game
copypaste: There's a lot if you go back in my commit history, heh...
asciilifeform: or do they all descend from same proggy ?
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform a lightweight structure, specific cli style commands and a requirement to start threads by embedding a picture. they're purely cosmetic, it's just a sort of forum ubuntu, if you take vbulletin to be windows.
mircea_popescu: they i think all descend from the same thing (aka, futaba) reimplemented x times
asciilifeform: ah
mircea_popescu: and it all runs in php!
mircea_popescu: which is probably the cutting-edgest application php ever knew.
decimation: ^ one wonders why nobody bothered to write something like this in pure c, given the performance demands
mircea_popescu: i doubt there's actually that much of an edge to be had, unless one goes all the way to mold it into nginx

davout: how did he obsolete it? also key expiration and "dead" flag seem functionally quite different
ascii_field: wai wat
jurov: you usually don't know in advance when a key needs to expire or get invalidated
jurov: and when you try to use this "expiry date" stuff, your mpex account expires,too
jurov: whereby with this "dead" flag you issue non-expiring key and decide what happens and why
davout: you can always extend the expiration date of a key
davout: it's not set in stone
jurov: mpex does not honor that
davout: how do you know? ☟︎
davout: mpex either speaks GPG or it doesn't

ascii_field: jurov: when it is dead, how do you prevent folks from signing with it 'backwards in time' backdated to before death ?
ascii_field: as i understand, the only way to do this is to require a blockchain 'ping' with -every- signature
jurov: must sign current merkle tree
jurov: stuff that cannot be predicted in advance
jurov: !up ascii_field
ascii_field: jurov: signing today's tree can be done tomorrow, no ?

trinque: ascii_field something like deedbot for key expirations (and the presently nonexistent but direly necessary expire-for-new-signatures-only) is inevitable << could you use a specific message format with the deedbot- as is?

trinque: I could also make changes to the thing to accomodate; maybe it rolls over all messages looking for particulars, produces some output every X
jurov: owner signed last merkle hash from a month ago, nothing seen from that key since

mircea_popescu: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=14-05-2015#1132130 << the "key deadness" as somehow a part of the key itself, is not only conceptually ridiculous but practically unimplementable. forget it, it's about as relevant to gpg as "the gnu foundation" ☝︎
assbot: Logged on 14-05-2015 18:03:07; ascii_field: if there is a 'key is dead' token that one is relying on some third party to keep secret - it can be captured
jurov: so, in 10 years 4096bit keys will stand in danger of cracking, what do you do? force everyone to pay 20-30btc again?
mircea_popescu: historical accident.
mircea_popescu: jurov absolutely.
ascii_field: one could picture a few 'cheats.' consider one: key, when promulgated, contains a large but finite set of values Q such that hash(hash(...(P)...) = Q, while P are retained as private. every signature must contain a unique Q from this set. when it is time to retire the key, you spend the remaining 'bullets' all at once.
mircea_popescu: ascii_field makes keys too big, doesn't actually offer anything other than the equivalent "at key promulgation, use it to sing a list of nonces, with understanding that statements w/io the nonce are void", let wot enforce this.
mircea_popescu: which in turn reduces to cargo-cultish supersecurity.
mircea_popescu: "oh, i encrypted this TWICE, it's much harder now!"
ascii_field: one cannot claim the same degree of 'hardness' for this as for the actual rsa, correct
mircea_popescu: there are some things that don't need fixing. what needs fixing re gpg is to use rsa throughout, rather than the current lulzatron.
ascii_field: but there -must- be a way to proclaim, with all the certainty that can be mustered, the fact that 'i signed with this before but -never intend to again-'
mircea_popescu: intentions need not be nor can they be part of signed matter.
ascii_field: and have this cemented in blockchain, on babylonian stone plinths, wherever
mircea_popescu: people have a way of coming to odds with their intentions
ascii_field: fuck'em
mircea_popescu: without human mediation, this is more of the "smart contracts" coolaid.
ascii_field: we have technology that can, with some certainty, prove that i did something at a certain moment in epoch time, plus or minus ten minutes
ascii_field: this plus rsa is good enough to sig-only-revoke.
ascii_field: (the tech is called bitcoin)
mircea_popescu: you have a comment field in the keys as they are now. put in there "This key not valid after block 175552"
ascii_field: merely suggesting a machine-readable standard for this, yes.
ascii_field: without the current idiotic retroactive cancellation of signatures
mircea_popescu: i do not belive machines should have any imperium over valid keys.
ascii_field: more of warning-light than imperium
mircea_popescu: it's what they say.
ascii_field: not that extant gpg honors expiration dates, to virtually everybody's great annoyance
ascii_field: *note that
mircea_popescu: i think the NOTION of expiration dates is broken.
mircea_popescu: you can't un-discover some integers in a certan mathematical relation.
ascii_field: it is only broken because it mixes abstraction-hardness levels, yes
ascii_field: remember the 'what colour are your bits' article.
mircea_popescu: right.
mircea_popescu: very much along the lines of that.
ascii_field: they cannot be undiscovered, yes. and don't have a baked-in temporal peg
mircea_popescu: so, the key is there. how do you COLOR it, that's your job.
ascii_field: pegging temporality requires some kind of agreement on mechanism
ascii_field: otherwise you get disputes and wankery where there should be 2+2 certainty.
mircea_popescu: there is necessarily not going to be 2+2 wankery.
mircea_popescu: i mean certainty
ascii_field: aha. but whatever approximation is physically possible, with clearly stated limits, ought to be achieved.
mircea_popescu: what are you, from the gui department ?
ascii_field: just as digital computer, theoretically, does not exist. but the approximation we use is 'almost same'
ascii_field: i'm from the shit that actually works within physical limits dept.
mircea_popescu: ah, but mind that there's no in principle reason a computer might not exist.

mircea_popescu: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=14-05-2015#1132148 << a simple solution to this being, of course, just making a deed. ☝︎
assbot: Logged on 14-05-2015 18:10:26; ascii_field: or rather, communicating authoritatively the statement that 'anyone using this key after this moment is an impostor'
trinque: and nobody's stopping anyone from signing some JSON or what have you
mircea_popescu: My new key is X, use of Y key past this point is unsupported. Signed by Y.
ascii_field: this oughta be machine-readable.
mircea_popescu: as per trinque above.
mircea_popescu: and it specifically should be 'unsupported'. For all you know a key ends up rediscovered five billion years later.
jurov: yeah, cthulhu appears and says you rediscovered his 5bn old key which he proclaimed expired long ago
mircea_popescu: lol
trinque: so you could publish some schema for representing this and arbitrarily other such statements into the deedbot
trinque: then make reference to that deed when you use that schema later down the way
trinque: to me these are actually the most interesting use cases of the thing
mircea_popescu: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=14-05-2015#1132163 << eh, i deprecated upgrading keys like i deprecating getting new suits. ☝︎
assbot: Logged on 14-05-2015 18:13:18; ascii_field: this is his greatest error and i'm not afraid to point at it
mircea_popescu: go into the shop get a new one made, what. you want to turn the old one in for a new one ?
mircea_popescu: what is this, the army ?
jurov: does the bank stops you from accessing your account when you get new suit?
BingoBoingo: It does if new suit includes ski mask
mircea_popescu: if it's any good, yes.
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo btw, make some qntra banners ?
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: Sure
mircea_popescu: ;;seen nubbins
gribble: nubbins was last seen in #bitcoin-assets 30 weeks, 1 day, 21 hours, 53 minutes, and 54 seconds ago: <nubbins> any messages, gribs?

gribble: nubbins` was last seen in #bitcoin-assets 1 week, 0 days, 6 hours, 11 minutes, and 44 seconds ago: <nubbins`> bbl doing things
jurov: we're talking about upgrading gpg keys according to known protocol, not some ski masks
mircea_popescu: ;;later tell nubbins` yo nooblet, make a pink eyes banner ? :D
gribble: The operation succeeded.
mircea_popescu: jurov we're talking about this situation where the total number of keys mpex charges for is = to the maximal number of keys ever used. that is not happening.
jurov: no it will inevitably be less
mircea_popescu: heh
mircea_popescu: ever used simultaneously*
asciilifeform: !up ascii_field
ascii_field: used simultaneously ?
mircea_popescu: myeah.
ascii_field: this is... 7th time? we had the 'mpex discourages key upgrade' thread ?
mircea_popescu: if you can upgrade your key for free, you don't have to pay mpex, you can just find someone with a key they don't want to use anymore and they can "upgrade" theirs to yours. ☟︎
mircea_popescu: mpex does not discourage anything. mpex charges, because mpex is a business.
ascii_field: aha, to upgrade key, mircea_popescu has to take a прогресс м-27м to orbit, and unscrew the old one, then retro-thruster and parachute capsule back to b-a
ascii_field: this costs approximately 30 btc.
mircea_popescu: keys are identities. identities have to qualify themselves. the qualification happens to be pay 30 btc.
mircea_popescu: i don't happen to care who your daddy is.
jurov: it's a racket yo
mircea_popescu: im that democratic.
ascii_field: mircea_popescu can charge 3000 btc if he likes, sure
mircea_popescu: but i do suspect i should increase it.
mircea_popescu: btc is way too cheap anyway.
mircea_popescu is off to ponder this idea.
ascii_field: aha too cheap. lusers like asciilifeform can almost afford 30
jurov: mp is the only one to qualify being on mpex, didn't you know?
ascii_field: it's his widget.
ascii_field: how many zeros to weld on to the price, his business
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 119500 @ 0.00028161 = 33.6524 BTC [-]
jurov: no, go on, annoy him
jurov: if he adds several zeros, perhaps coinbr will see some volume after all
ascii_field: or some competition, l0l
jurov: they'd have to hire knuth himself to squeeze something usable out of that atrocious api
ascii_field: jurov: i thought the gnarly api was part of the 'bozo filter' just as the price was
jurov: yes and building something over it is yet another level
jurov: i suspect boilers will have much better ROI than another honest broker
ascii_field: better roi until pop, aha
ascii_field: i'm kinda curious why mircea_popescu considers a new key signed with a previous key to not be a logical continuation of the same identity. (is it because of the impossibility of hard-guaranteed revocation, as discussed in previous thread?) ☟︎
ascii_field: perhaps when he wakes up again, will tell
jurov: it's not set into stone, you know
ascii_field: ?
jurov: he's born into wrong time, prolly wants to build a pyramid ☟︎
ben_vulpes: <ascii_field> well, nothing approaching transistor << what sorta frequencies *did* work?
ascii_field: ben_vulpes: a few khz
jurov: stone carving just are not upgraded
jurov: *carvings
ascii_field: ben_vulpes: i suspect this can be pushed up as the transformer cores are made smaller and coils themselves shorter (less inductive)
ben_vulpes: mhm
jurov: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magnetic_logic says 1MHz
assbot: Magnetic logic - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia ... ( http://bit.ly/1H5TudA )
ascii_field: in the miniature version i suggested, performance may well edge into overlap with the worst silicon
ascii_field: jurov: magnetic logic as described in the literature mostly 'cheated' by including a diode with each gate
ascii_field: (read scan from earlier to learn why)
davout: meanwhile, http://blog.bitcoinfoundation.org/ leads to a "The Free Trial is Over" stock page XD ☟︎☟︎

ascii_field: waat
ben_vulpes: <jurov> they'd have to hire knuth himself to squeeze something usable out of that atrocious api << ah, it's not that bad, just write a parser for the variety-speaking ad-hoc blublang
ben_vulpes: ragel's sitting right over there, etc
jurov: ben_vulpes: if you followed my adventures, i have got parser for $30 from romanian student
ben_vulpes: (for the uninitiated: i'm being very sarcastic)
jurov: it was the rest that took half a year
ben_vulpes: do you do a stat before and after placing every order?
ben_vulpes: actually you know what?
ben_vulpes: i don't feel like loading the MPEx api into my head today.
ascii_field: funnily, i still have it in my head
jurov: ben_vulpes: no, that is not necessary :)
ascii_field: (from phree demo in late 2012)
jurov: but you still have the account?
ascii_field: no
ascii_field: it was a demo
jurov: but beta accounts are still fully functional!
jurov: i have one
ascii_field: it wasn't an early beta, it was a demo just for me
ascii_field: mircea_popescu even gave me a 1 btc to drive it with
jurov: l0l
ascii_field: which i later gave him back
ascii_field: (actually ~1.4 that it turned into) ☟︎
ascii_field: that demo was actually my first contact with mircea_popescu
jurov: you did not keep 0.4 funbux?
ascii_field: (initially, just with hanbot)
