asciilifeform: !up alphonse23_
asciilifeform: alphonse23_: you still there?
williamdunne: Pure hilarity on this show
alphonse23_: yup
alphonse23_: what's up
williamdunne: Two identical twin brothers at a festival, guy tries to cheat on his girlfriend with some bird
asciilifeform: alphonse23_: author of 'phuctor' speaking. you had questions ? ☟︎
williamdunne: Brother calls him out
williamdunne: They argue with each other
williamdunne: The other brother fucks his bird
alphonse23_: what does 4096 refer to
alphonse23_: the maximum size of the primes
asciilifeform: alphonse23_: no. the size of the modulus, typically a product of two primes
alphonse23_: or the maximum size of what the two primes are multiplied to each other?
williamdunne: Bits of entropy
alphonse23_: so 4096 is the maximum size of the product of the two primes?
asciilifeform: aha.
williamdunne: Only on Debian
alphonse23_: doesn't that only leave a handful of primes though
alphonse23_: you could just check them all.
alphonse23_: right?
williamdunne: Yes
asciilifeform: is the question specifically concerning the buggy debian rng ?
asciilifeform: or rsa in general
williamdunne: RSA in general
williamdunne: Debian was a joke on my part
asciilifeform: williamdunne: i think we have a genuine noob here, and you are addling him
asciilifeform: williamdunne: please stop.
alphonse23_: i'm not that big of a noob
williamdunne: alphonse23_: This might help you understand what the 4096 means
williamdunne: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Password_strength
alphonse23_: just not an expert
asciilifeform: alphonse23_: 'checking them all', given current of foreseeable technology, would take several thousand years.
alphonse23_: and what point are you not a noob
alphonse23_: maybe you can ask that about everything
alphonse23_: and maybe I shouldn't care
trinque: alphonse23_: noob's not an insult
trinque: "beginner's mind"
asciilifeform: alphonse23_: rsa is not especially complicated. you can understand the basic idea after an hour's study
asciilifeform: alphonse23_: http://mathworld.wolfram.com/RSAEncryption.html for example.
alphonse23_: yea, I've read a fair share of online guides about it
alphonse23_: I kind of understand
asciilifeform: alphonse23_: http://doc.sagemath.org/html/en/thematic_tutorials/numtheory_rsa.html << worked examples
alphonse23_: still don't get elliptical curve cryptography at all.
asciilifeform: alphonse23_: 'phuctor' deals only with traditional rsa keys.
alphonse23_: twitter works on 2056 I think
alphonse23_: why no go decrypt some twitter traffic or something
alphonse23_: what's the purpose of all this?
asciilifeform: alphonse23_: basic idea, which is very old, is that euclid's greatest-common-divisor algorithm is very fast, for arbitrarily large numbers. so if two or more rsa keys were to share a factor, it will pop up.
williamdunne: Can only break bad keys
asciilifeform: alphonse23_: the idea is to find evidence of sabotaged implementations of rsa key generator.
alphonse23_: find the NSA at work?

asciilifeform: alphonse23_: instead we found that someone is uploading carefully modified versions of other people's keys to sks key server net
alphonse23_: interesting
alphonse23_: I've never heard of the sks key server
asciilifeform: alphonse23_: it isn't one specific server, but a network of mirrors
asciilifeform: entirely automatic
asciilifeform: typically users of pgp/gpg upload their public keys there, and they can later be retrieved by anyone using a hash of the key
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 8400 @ 0.00033258 = 2.7937 BTC [-]
alphonse23_: oh, so if you want to store your pgp some where, so anyone can verify it's you, you upload it to sks
alphonse23_: i've been using a service called keybase.io lately. Is that a noob service?
ben_vulpes: !s keybase
assbot: 64 results for 'keybase' : http://s.b-a.link/?q=keybase
shinohai: keybase blows
williamdunne: Personally I like it, just don't store your keys there
alphonse23_: I have some invite codes
asciilifeform: alphonse23_: if you let them generate keys for you, they have your private key. this ought to be elementarily obvious
alphonse23_: if anyone wants them :)
alphonse23_: that's a good point asciilifeform
shinohai: Thats just it, I wouldn't be storing my keys there.
alphonse23_: that generate the primes right in front of you! :)
alphonse23_: *they generate the primes
williamdunne: shinohai: Exactly, you don't have to, to use the service :)
alphonse23_: I guess it's made very user friendly though
shinohai: It's nice and all, but I just don't see the advantage over plain gpg
alphonse23_: it comes with a CLI app that lets you verify anyone on their servers
asciilifeform: alphonse23_: it is 'user friendly' in the same way that a mousetrap is mouse-friendly
trinque: alphonse23_: ever heard "if it's free, you're the product" ?
alphonse23_: maybe though the issue is, where would one store a public key. on whose server
alphonse23_: it would probably be like facebook, if it ever got popular. Which ever server became the most widespread.
shinohai: Don't. Use a keyring or a yubi.
BingoBoingo: <alphonse23_> maybe though the issue is, where would one store a public key. on whose server << Ideally if you want people to find your public key you spray it all over, but especially spray it in venues associated with your identity.
asciilifeform: alphonse23_: there is a large and well-established network of public key servers. e.g., https://pgp.mit.edu and other sks
alphonse23_: I have many online identities. I think keybase.io purpose is to verify and unify those identities
asciilifeform: alphonse23_: they all mirror one another.
alphonse23_: so people know it's you
asciilifeform: alphonse23_: for people whom you will never meet, 'you' are the key. and nothing else.
alphonse23_: had no idea. I only used keybase.io because someone I know was using it, and I thought it was a great idea.
trinque: alphonse23_: if someone other than you knows your private key, it is by definition not private
alphonse23_: I don't give out my private key
asciilifeform: alphonse23_: except to keybase?
danielpbarron: alphonse23_, the sites that keybase lets you link to your identity aren't really worth linking to your identity
alphonse23_: well. they don't have my private key
shinohai: ^ danielpbarron
asciilifeform: alphonse23_: if you let them generate it, they have it
trinque: keybase sticks it in browser local storage, right?
alphonse23_: but they did show the primes generated for it when I signed up for the service
trinque: alphonse23_: all they have to do is ship you some javascript once that reads that and transmits it elsewhere
alphonse23_: so you could say it's a compromised service
asciilifeform: alphonse23_: the very idea is braindamaged
alphonse23_: ok fine. But should I not trust keybase...
alphonse23_: I'm not sure. I was just trying out the service
williamdunne: alphonse23_: Its compromised if you a) generate your keys with them, or b) store your keys with them.
alphonse23_: but yes, I should probably micromanage my own keys and passwords
williamdunne: Its not even micromanaging, its just owning
trinque: one should use the same precautions with their bitcoin private keys.
trinque: you only own the coin if you *own* the private keys in the strictest sense
danielpbarron: the recommendation in here is to not even use newer versions of gpg, let alone some add-on made by a dating website guy
asciilifeform: alphonse23_: if someone else has a copy of your private key, whether because you let them generate it for you, or gave it up for storage for 'convenience', he can do anything which you can do. this ought to be obvious
danielpbarron: !up alphonse23_
alphonse23_: well. like I know that.

BingoBoingo: alphonse23_: Well you do now. The question is what are you going to do about it?
alphonse23_: I'm going to become paranoid, and start keeping track of my own keys
alphonse23_: and stop being naive and trying out services from guys who start dating websites

alphonse23_: but I haven't been able to find one.
alphonse23_: any recommendations
asciilifeform: alphonse23_: what is a 'key locker' ?
alphonse23_: like, not necessarily a key locker, but somewhere to store passwords
asciilifeform: alphonse23_: you already own a device for storing passwords. it is attached to your shoulders.
alphonse23_: my brain
alphonse23_: but I use a lot of services online
ben_vulpes: passwords.gpg
alphonse23_: and I don't really keep track of all my passwords
alphonse23_: but I should
alphonse23_: but I've been using the internet for years now.
ben_vulpes: derpy_web_passwords.gpg
ben_vulpes: super_important_passwords.gpg
alphonse23_: k
alphonse23_: I'll do that
alphonse23_: thanks bitcon-assets
punkman: this uses gpg http://www.passwordstore.org/
BingoBoingo: I've found KeyPassX adequate for storing tons of derpy web passwords. Also available on pretty much any OD
BingoBoingo: *OS

danielpbarron: i ran into issues with grub as well; ended up using the older version
mod6: shinohai: oh, im creating a guide on how to build gentoo on a physical box. it seems that the handbook covers it mostly. except for me I had problems with some things.
mod6: gentoo is a nightmare.
danielpbarron: once it's working it's quite nice ☟︎
mod6: but it has this uclibc hardened stage3 that i'd like to try out as a platform from which we can utilize building and testing the R. I.
mod6: danielpbarron: i'll never enjoy it, i come from bsd. :]
BingoBoingo likes the even BSD even moar the more he lives with it
mod6: anyway, yeah, im sure i just did something dumb on my end with gentoo. i got it working fine on AWS.
mod6: im beginning to be skeptical that anyone can just get this working very easily though.
shinohai: I haven't delved into gentoo :/
mod6: so hopefully the guide I create will make it a bit easier. hopefully.
shinohai: btw, bitcoind built swimmingly on Ubuntu 14.04
shinohai: Even though I don't like/use Ubuntu - it works.
mod6: good to hear. thx :]
mod6: x86-64 im guessing?

mod6: shinohai: haha.
shinohai: I haven't applied that patch yet :/
mod6: oh the 2 orphange ones?
mod6: i wouldn't worry about it. these are experimental as of now. at a later time, they maybe included in a milestone release.
mod6: unless you wanna test those seperately from your v0.5.3.1-RELEASE version
shinohai: Awesum. I hold off because I'm lazy and waiting for the first one to sync
mod6: yeah, sounds good.
shinohai: I need to set up an image to test on. I was gonna try an Arch image.
mod6: cool, if you do, let us know how it works out
shinohai: I have this crazy idea of getting it to run on those little arch images that work on Android

decimation: heh what is a 'police court'
decimation: a collection of police who decide to throw you in the gulag?
decimation: more and more it seems like the judicial branch simply acts as a rubber stamp for the executive

mircea_popescu: a police court is the choice way to deal with drunks and domestic disputes.

You're the ones saying they're going to send death-squads to Ukraine after me, but you're not worried about them doing the same to you from in their backyard?
BingoBoingo: Landgull: I am terribly worried of that.
asciilifeform: Landgull: the queue must be long, i'm still waiting to be gassed, give'em some time
decimation: generally no-knocks are done of folks who give the cops some reason to think they will be a threat
BingoBoingo: But I am terribly resigned to being low on the cue
asciilifeform: 'prison is like the grave, room can be found for everyone' (ru proverb)
Landgull: If they want you, they'll find you wherever you go. But it takes a lot more wanting to deal with finding you somewhere else than it does to find you when you're wrapped up with a bow for them.
asciilifeform: Landgull: interestingly, it is much cheaper to have you picked up in an 'orcish' land than in, e.g., new york
asciilifeform: because the dirty work can be done with local hands, and bureaucratic niceties are 100% optional
Landgull: Plus, as I said, the USgov owns the UAgov, but unlike the US where the government really effects your life, the government here is a mass of incompetent bureaucracy without any serious ability to organize anything. ☟︎
decimation: no lawyers, etc
asciilifeform: Landgull: ^ and this doesn't affect your life?!
decimation: no other parts of usg to fiddle
Landgull: Well, I'm not trying to be here on a permanent visa.
BingoBoingo: <Landgull> Plus, as I said, the USgov owns the UAgov, but unlike the US where the government really effects your life, the government here is a mass of incompetent bureaucracy without any serious ability to organize anything. << Kinda why Phillipines is on my exit candidate list. Massively orchish and USG proving proving ground for cultural failures.
Landgull: And I'm not suggesting Lviv as the destination of the century - like I said, I'm here to meet the girlfriend's family.
asciilifeform: Landgull: besides, they did organize very well to shell a few million ru folks in east ua day and night. that will be paid for eventually.
Landgull: Yeah, but most of those soldiers are extremely hostile to the UAgov at this point. It's more likely to be paid for by the UAarmy than the RUarmy.
asciilifeform: Landgull: they're bringing in u.s. mercenaries. will be many good lulz.
Landgull: I've heard the Phillipines are good. I've never been there.
BingoBoingo: http://pastebin.com/B1t1i1nx << WHo was in charge of gossipd??? ☟︎

Landgull: If the troops have more guns than they have generals...
decimation: then mutineers are shot?
Landgull: These people have been fighting for actual independence, from everyone, for over 100 years. They've fought poles, they've fought germans, they've fought russians.
Landgull: Unlike the USgov with a nebulous idea of "we want to spread democracy guyz" they actually know what they're fighting for.
asciilifeform: Landgull: fighting to be zimbabwe, yes
asciilifeform: Landgull: if they had learned to manufacture so much as an alarm clock, much less airplane or nuke, they would be somewhere on the road to where 'independence' is thinkable outside of a lunatic asylum ☟︎
asciilifeform: as we have it - zimbabwe.
Landgull: Ascii: Most of the "economic development" in the world is fed by debt-bubbles.
decimation: I was under the impression that they wanted to recreate the waffen ss
asciilifeform: decimation: aha, with pitchforks (what'll be left after nato packs up)
decimation: http://rt.com/news/155364-ukraine-nazi-division-march/
Landgull: As for the nazi issue: Yes, Bandera and UPA are considered cultural heroes here, and yes they co-operated with the germans, because they thought it was their best chance for an independent Ukraine.
decimation: of course, as moldbug said, actual nazis would ahve been horrified by these guys
Landgull: Most of the things you're saying are what I thought before I actually got on an airplane and came here.
asciilifeform: Landgull: i happen to have been born there.
Landgull: In Lviv?
asciilifeform: 600km east
asciilifeform: odessa
Landgull: Are you Russian or Ukrainian?
asciilifeform: ru
decimation: wait, I thought ukrainian was kind of a rural-hick version of russian (as a language)
asciilifeform: when the ukrs came, changed the street signs, and forced their chimp dialect to be taught in schools, my folks packed up for usa.
asciilifeform: decimation: it is
asciilifeform: decimation: phun phact: 'u kraina' ~= 'on the hinterlands'
decimation: the idea that western ukraine exists as a separate race or language is hilarious ☟︎
BingoBoingo: Landgull: May I suggest lever action rifle as a solution to your problems. Since pistol caliber casting rounds with coinsilver is surprisingly reasonable
Landgull: ...except I can look at people and tell who is Russian and who is Ukrainian. And again: I'm not saying Ukraine is the mecca to run to, I'm saying that getting out of the US to somewhere that is saner, (and yes, UA is saner than the US) is worth the effort.
asciilifeform: Landgull: west ua is ethnically own things, yes. largely pl and hu folks
decimation: russia itself isn't exactly homogenous
BingoBoingo: !up Vexual
Landgull: Ascii: holodomor and resettling of russians during the USSR definitely effected the country in a big way, demographically, such that "historically Ukrainian" lands aren't really Ukrainian anymore.
asciilifeform: decimation: when most foreigners think of ru, they picture something roughly like the duchy of moscovy circa 1300s
BingoBoingo pictures Sean Connery's home in Hunt for the Red October
asciilifeform: *1500
Landgull: But the Ukrainians are an actual race and culture - yes they're similar to the Poles, the Hungarians, and the Russians, but whether or not they're a biological race or just a cultural and linguistic one, they've a strong sense of national identity and a strong desire for national self-determination.
decimation: asciilifeform: yeah but what about all the turkic and mongoliod autonomous regions
asciilifeform: next Landgull will have us consider the pakistanis or taiwanese 'an ancient and own race and culture'
Landgull: I also think that Crimea and eastern UA shouldn't probably be part of the same country as western and central UA.
asciilifeform: rather than the anglo-created zoos they are ☟︎

Landgull: Except the people here have been fighting to be their own country since before the US became an empire.
decimation: Landgull: what about Zabaykalsky Krai
asciilifeform: Landgull: mainly fighting poles, and turks, yes
Landgull: Decimation: It's not something I know enough about to make any comment on.
asciilifeform: and to avoid rape & pillage, rather than 'to be own country', which is really a 19th c. psychiatric disease
asciilifeform: and in its most acute manifestations, far more recent than that
decimation: my point is that there are plenty of autonomous oblasts inside ru which have similiar 'ethnic and liguistic' claims
decimation: hell, so do the apache in arizona
Landgull: And if they want independence, why shouldn't they have it?
asciilifeform: decimation: i will add that usg works tirelessly to help -them- as well 'wake up' to their 'ancient and proud cultural identity and thirst for independence'
decimation: because they suck, and cannot achieve it
Landgull: So, you're opposed to US imperialism, but simultaneously think that people shouldn't have a right to self-determination?
asciilifeform: Landgull: any flea-bitten village can become an independent country. all it needs to do is learn to manufacture ballistic rockets and nukes by the thousands.
asciilifeform: and submarines to sail them on.
decimation: woah, I never said I was opposed to us imperialism
decimation: I'm opposed to the lack of liberty in the us
asciilifeform: anything short of this, is just switching the selection of imperial rapist
asciilifeform: Landgull: 'right to self-determination' comes from these gadgets and nowhere else.
Landgull: Ascii: a kalashnikov in the hands of every resident would achieve the same thing. ☟︎
mats: fun fact: some large radio telescopes were built for earth to moon to earth surveillance of su radars

decimation: yeah, cn and ru are more-or-less independent
Landgull: ...for the last time, I'm not saying "Hey guys, you should move to Ukraine." or that I'm moving to Ukraine for that matter - I prefer South America on the whole. I'm saying that if you want personal liberty, and to not live in an insane culture, you can actually leave and be better off.
asciilifeform: Landgull: i was merely arguing that you have not actually left usa
decimation: and I'm saying that you have lept from the frying pan into the fire
asciilifeform: just living in the 76th state or the like.
decimation: you are part of the greater-usaia that has no pretense of rights
asciilifeform: yes, flat in lvov costs about what it does in iowa.
asciilifeform: but why is this exciting

asciilifeform: mats: untrusted ~= without admin ?
mats: yeah
asciilifeform: mats: considering the ease of bypassing uac on all known winblows, sorta academic
decimation: mats: probably depends on how retarded your hardware is
asciilifeform: mats: or the abundance of buggy legit-signed drivers to dynamically load and exploit
Landgull: Ascii: I won't disagree with you (decimation, you're wrong.) that most of the world is currently under the USgov thumb, to some degree. But you are still better off in an outlying part of it, where the control is less potent, and has much less influence on your daily life (like, in terms of being able to buy food that doesn't make you sick, and being able to date girls who aren't insane) than you are sitting in their back yard
asciilifeform: Landgull: get back to us re: the girls once you have $0 ☟︎
asciilifeform: and re: their sanity once you renounce your u.s. passport formally
decimation: heh yeah
Landgull: Ascii: met the girl in Canada, she pays for half of everything, and she's not interested in ever going back to the west, because it's too insane.
asciilifeform cannot comment on the specifics of Landgull's case here, but the overall prognosis of americans who go abroad 'for the gurlz' is dire
Landgull: Decimation: You're imagining that governments in the rest of the world work like the US government. I.E. the laws on the books matter. They can pass a law saying just about anything they want, but they don't have the means to enforce it and they have a population that is used to just ignoring government stupidity instead of bending over.
Landgull: The babusya/babushkas here have more power than Poroshenko does.
asciilifeform: Landgull: this cuts both ways. if locals start charging you $1000/mo for the great privilege of your flat not being torched, the officials -also- will not care.
Landgull: Sure. And it's why you do need to actually integrate. I.E. learn the language, get to know people, etc.
asciilifeform: if Landgull did this - congrats to him
Landgull: Same thing with the women. If you go to Ukraine, find English speaking girls, and flash your passport and cash around, you're going to have a bad day.
Vexual: how much is the chapagne agian?!?!
Landgull: ~40-50 hryvnyas. So $2-3
Landgull: Ascii: I'm working, slowly, on my Ukrainian. My Spanish is much better.
Vexual: yeah depends where you go i suppose
decimation: Landgull: seems like a high price to pay in terms of years of your life for very thin guarantees ☟︎
Landgull: Decimation: I'm not running from, I'm running to.
Landgull: I used to be running from.
Landgull: I like learning languages, and I like buying my food in an open air market from the person who grew it.
Vexual: i like strip joints
Vexual: prolly where i went wrong
Landgull: Haha. I also like cheap vodka and cops you can bribe away from petty crimes.
Vexual: in australia, its too hot for the cops to get out of the car mostly
Vexual: they do finger wagging with the windows up
Landgull: XD
Landgull: I'd rather there were a safe, sane, stable country where I could go, build a business, and have a normal life, but that's not going to exist until btc finishes what it has started. ☟︎
Landgull: And if the western finance system does come crashing down, you're going to be better off in poor countries (granted that you can live like a local) because they're used to things like that happening. USistan will devolve into utter insanity.

Landgull: Cost of living, for the same standard of living, is ~5-10x lower here than in the US
Vexual: can you get a good tomato?
Landgull: If you actually go shop at the market and take public transport, as opposed to walling yourself off in some hotel.
Landgull: The food is better than anything I've ever had before.
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 13700 @ 0.00032505 = 4.4532 BTC [-]
Landgull: People from the villages around Lviv bring in what they grow and sell it to you. No mass-produced GMO rin tomatoes.
Landgull: The reason tomatoes are pink instead of red is they're heterozygous for RIN, or ripening-inhibition gene to make them ship better. ☟︎
Vexual: i kinda like em firm like that
Vexual: for sandwiches
Landgull: Well, they're still firm, because they're fresh. But you have to go to the market every day or two because the food goes bad quickly. ☟︎
Landgull: Which sounds like a bad thing, but I'd like to know why it is that chicken rots much faster in Ukraine than in the US...
Landgull: If the bacteria won't eat it...
Vexual: fuck furn around here and the shits got maggots
Vexual: old school aussie fridge was a flyscreen
Landgull: I'm not trying to claim that this is some kind of paradise, it's absolutely not, and you have to give up a lot of the "first world" comforts.
Vexual: like strippers that dont pull a gun?
Landgull: Eh, violence here when it happens is much more the fist fight sort than the murder sort.
Landgull: Or the "I want your money" and then run away sort.
Landgull: It's definitely safer than the city I grew up in back in the US.
Vexual: sounds like a no-brainer
mircea_popescu: in sadder news, a reasonably recent 8 core server is doing block verification at the rate of 28 seconds per. ☟︎

mircea_popescu: if one scales shit linarily, a 20mb block would be verified by this machine in 560 seconds, or just a shade under 10 minutes
mircea_popescu: meaning that the average server your average internaut can't afford would barely keep up with the chain.

BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> if one scales shit linarily, a 20mb block would be verified by this machine in 560 seconds, or just a shade under 10 minutes << Welcome to my world

Bornean orangutans (Pongo pygmaeus) exhibited aggression in almost 90 percent of their copulations, including when the females were not resisting.

Some strategic advantage will always exist. So the only way a minority can organize against a majority without "just riding a wave" is if they ignore all of their strategic advantages - which would make your supreme good exceedingly foolish.

danielpbarron: that means their customers are paying in bitcoin? I know the typical drug user and they don't have any bitcoin
danielpbarron: makes more sense that the dealers want to *get* the bitcoin as a way to deal with some of their undocumented wealth
liquidassets: I've ONLY got my bitcoin from Coinbase and maybe a few hundred thousand satoshi from mycelium deals

mircea_popescu: another 29 huh.
mircea_popescu: you really should poison the P with first 10k primes or something.
ascii_field: mircea_popescu: thought about doing that
ascii_field: not hard
mircea_popescu: indeed.
ascii_field: it'll be in the next update.
mircea_popescu: kinda what my "universal keys" idea was trying to do, for "well chosen" so to speak small primes.
mircea_popescu: but really there's no excuse not to have the small ones in.
ascii_field: also interesting would be last 10,000 primes.

mircea_popescu: which incidentally is not THAT hard to compute
ascii_field: aha
mircea_popescu: ascii_field listen, can you add a json for the stats which outputs url of newest found pore ?
mircea_popescu: then we can get will dunne to add it to scoopbot.

mircea_popescu: trinque i read his stuff for curiosity, i was so wtf'd. "this doesn't look like www code..."
trinque: better if he doesn't absorb the braindamage
ascii_field: it was written in great haste, and a little crufty, yes
ascii_field: could easily be half as long
trinque: I'm busy crafting a shit-spelunking suit out of parenscript for future web endeavors
mircea_popescu: my mental notes were more on the lines of "o look, it's clear that the author understands what his code does" and "o look, there's actually a reason for this stuff to be here"
ascii_field: mircea_popescu: what else have you been reading, for contrast? winblows src ?
trinque: mircea_popescu: yes, most web code looks like a venezuelan shanty town, parts scrounged from all over, haphazardly bolted or taped in
mircea_popescu: ascii_field ^
trinque: I'm convinced 99% of the industry does not actually know how to code
BingoBoingo: And that is the beter web code

mircea_popescu: the "after block x only sync because gavin has said magics about block x" is NOT much better.
mircea_popescu: it's just a rougher implementation of the "verify 1 in x" concept.
mircea_popescu: and i will note that the 28 seconds figure is merely an average - plenty of blocks actually do take minutes to check.
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 3963 @ 0.00035106 = 1.3913 BTC [+]
mircea_popescu: for that matter, a maximal 1MB block should be designed and tested against on a variety of systems just to see.
mircea_popescu: but i suspect that common hardware takes well over two minutes to verify a 1mb block full of txn, which is to say 1500 or so of them.
ascii_field: one more reason to bake the thing into hardware
mircea_popescu: (if you do the math, 100 ms for a full bitcoin sig check thing is about where it is)
ascii_field: btw, sig-checking parallelizes
mircea_popescu: ascii_field baking the thing into the hardware is exactly equal to import usg.h
ascii_field: (not in the idiot bitcoind, no. but mathematically)
mircea_popescu: ascii_field yes, but this is the most delicate part of the chicken's spleen.
ascii_field: mircea_popescu: ecdsa in particular ?
mircea_popescu: just, doing it without fucking anything up.
ascii_field doesn't grasp why mircea_popescu thinks this to be hard
mircea_popescu: worst case scenario here being where you get it 99.9999% right, and then everyone thinks you got it,
mircea_popescu: and then two yerars later 0.00001% happens and the chain is split.
ascii_field: as if we had anything like certainty that the chain is not splittable -now-
ascii_field: between 0.5.3 and 0.8+ say
mircea_popescu: we have five year's live testing :D
ben_vulpes: i don't think further splits are avoidable
mircea_popescu: eh, 0.8+ is the kindergarten. if it splits the total loss is ~= two fatties and a stray dog.
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes the idea is to try and avoid splits in the actual codebase.
