asciilifeform: the hash list ?
decimation: no his trilema post
asciilifeform: ah
decimation: asciilifeform: did we do a thread on 'headers only' block data?
asciilifeform: mentioned on several occasions
decimation: it occurs to me that it would be useful to broadcast a digest of a block in addition to the actual block data
decimation: mainly for users on bandwidth constrained channels
asciilifeform: that'd be the header, no ?
decimation: I guess.
asciilifeform: node already has option of asking for those
asciilifeform: it is part of the protocol
decimation: ah, I will read the code
asciilifeform: what i think would be considerably more useful is a provision for 'programmable checkpoints'
decimation: For something like shortwave broadcast, this is what you would want
asciilifeform: that is, an ascii file similar to my sums.txt.gz
asciilifeform: signed with pgp, verified by user, dropped in .bitcoin
decimation: aye, that would be useful for a 'starter pak' node
DanyAlos: mats: Thx
decimation: one wonders why this hasn't been done already, seems an obvious fix to 'node takes forever to sync'
asciilifeform: won't make'em sync any faster
asciilifeform: but will discourage some of the more hamfisted kinds of shitgnomery
decimation: oh you just mean the sums
asciilifeform: aha
decimation: yeah okay, that would be useful for double-checking chain integrity yes
decimation: for the headers thing, I'm imagining a scenario where someone is waiting for a transaction to clear
decimation: it would be useful to know when a new block is found, so you can ask your peers for a copy
asciilifeform: what's wrong with the old-fashioned 'inv' ?
decimation: I suppose if a peer is available, you could do that. but then you are only trusting one node's say
decimation: imagine three frequencies with three different nodes around the world, all with agreement on headers
decimation: at any rate, I'm imagining ways to sew parachutes before they are needed
asciilifeform: when else.
decimation: unfortunately with the effective bandwidth needed by the current blockchain makes global synchronization quite expensive
decimation: and internet-dependent
decimation: weird, the last four blocks had no transactions
asciilifeform: this may well be one of those things that can be made 'as simple as possible but not simpler'
asciilifeform: <decimation> weird, the last four blocks had no transactions << betcha somebody's playing with the 'tx selector' thing
asciilifeform: and botched horribly
decimation: I guess as long as they find a block that matches difficulty it will be valid
decimation: it would sure make it simpler to devise a big asic machine to find hashes if it doesn't need to bother with transactions
asciilifeform: not really
decimation: although you would give up on fees
asciilifeform: given the merkle tree thing, tx's don't really add to the load
decimation: ah yeah good point
asciilifeform: but it would stand to reason that miners will eventually exert more tx fee pressure
asciilifeform: perhaps this is already happening.
decimation: the big blocks are running nearly a mb or so
asciilifeform: at any rate, various folks have mined empties before. afaik, it is not publicly known precisely why.

ben_vulpes: "However, this also means they're not checking the new BIP66 rule, and are now mining invalid blocks because of it.

ben_vulpes: Bitcoin 0.5.3 is the canonical reference implementation. If a fork occurs and one side validates on the 0.5.3 codebase while the other does not, the chain that validates under 0.5.3 is the only valid chain.
mircea_popescu: Bitcoin Core (after 0.10.0) rejects these invalid blocks, but a lot of other stuff doesn't. SPV Bitcoinj wallets do no validation what-so-ever, blindly following the longest chain. blockchain.info doesn't appear to do validation as well; who knows what else? <<
mircea_popescu: anyway, todd is right. the only way this affects us is that we don't really give much of a shit.
ben_vulpes: mod6 if you feel compelled to elaborate on this, go ahead.
mircea_popescu: let 'em figure out how to do soft forks or w/e.
ben_vulpes: i have a porch of meatwot and babes that actually need attending to.
ben_vulpes: frantic action is for the impotent.
mircea_popescu: i have nfi how the power rangers imagine they'll manage a hardfork when they can't as much as get a "relevant support" softwork that's fairly uncontroversial.
ben_vulpes: i've not yet accepted this soft/hardfork duality.
asciilifeform: ^
ben_vulpes: things either validate under 0.5.whatever or they don't.
mircea_popescu: well, any people can at any time decide to narrow the rules. this makes some sense.
decimation: they claim this is a softfork
mircea_popescu: hard fork is enlarging the rules.
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes all thios would validate under .5
decimation: actually I think this is gonna be fine on 0.5
mircea_popescu: the idea is they don't want to see some stuff that validates anymore
mircea_popescu: this is no skin off my back, who cares.
ben_vulpes: too bad, fuck them.
mod6: <+ben_vulpes> Bitcoin 0.5.3 is the canonical reference implementation. If a fork occurs and one side validates on the 0.5.3 codebase while the other does not, the chain that validates under 0.5.3 is the only valid chain. << I have nothing further to add to this at this time.
decimation: the problem is that 0.5.3 blocks generated by 0.5.3 won't validate if those IfSuperMajority rules check
mircea_popescu: decimation provided their "mine support" actually materializes
mircea_popescu: otherwise, no.
decimation: well actually yes
decimation: because they already did a 'softfork' on the nVersion
decimation: I'm not sure if there are enough blocks to trigger it
ben_vulpes: T.I.A.S. (tm) (r) (#emacs)
ben_vulpes: mircea_popescu: anyone can narrow the rules, but whether that's "bitcoin" is an open question.

decimation: midnightmagic: the "amount of work" argument utterly fails to impress
decimation: also, it's probably not going to be true in a year or two as 14 nm asics fan out and become barely economic
midnightmagic: that is the inverse of what will happen as more-efficient mining equipment arrives.
decimation: also, your argument would also be true if nMajorityWindow=10000 or 100000
ben_vulpes: decimation is ready to bet against diff increases?
decimation: I think it's likely to level out in the coming year or two, maybe longer
ben_vulpes: midnightmagic is ready to work more student exercises?
decimation: unless someone can tell me exactly how they are going to 'get efficient'
ben_vulpes: efficiency is not a prerequisite for fab runs.
decimation: no, but it is for profitability in the face of non-zero electric rates
ben_vulpes: since when has midnightmagic's employer given a shit about profitability?
midnightmagic: ben_vulpes: #trollfail. That sort of thing doesn't work on me, especially when it comes from someone like you.
ben_vulpes: lol and yet you bit
midnightmagic: ben_vulpes: You would call a bite any response. That is the fundamental nature of #trollfail.
ben_vulpes: y'ever hear the line: "don't feed the trolls"?
midnightmagic: Regardless, a 1000-block window is not unreasonable if one accepts that mining hashpower is the vote that counts.
decimation: I don't accept it.
decimation: nor does this argument hold for 1000, because the same argument can be made for 50000
ben_vulpes: i don't accept it either.
ben_vulpes: midnightmagic: you make this mistake of letting the plants control the conversation. "what's the right magic number of blocks to signal fork acceptance?" answer: there isn't. there is only the long-term behavior of the network.
midnightmagic: Correct. I am saying your complaint about it being unreasonable is illogical by any measure of the mining work done: there *is* no other meaningful window, or measurement, of the bitcoin network without shifting to PoS or DPoS. But if you want to do that, fork bitshares.
ben_vulpes: this moronic 'acceptance-in-blockchain' algo doesn't work, because hashpower can revert and rewrite an arbitrarily-lengthed blockchain.
midnightmagic: ben_vulpes: On that at least, we agree. I agree with that: the current hashrate is as illegitimate as a vote of private keys would be in determining a softfork. What else is there?
ben_vulpes: 's just no window.
ben_vulpes: there's* just no window.
ben_vulpes: just the network. that, only that, no more, no less.
midnightmagic: Thus, backing up further, there is the legitimacy of BIP66 at all. If it is not legitimate, we have a consensus code failure every time openssl decides they want to change behaviour.
ben_vulpes: midnightmagic: art thou familiar with the 1.0.1g issue?
decimation: you are subjugating human judgement to unthinking machinery - this can never be reasonable
ben_vulpes: openssl changed behavior. bitcoin did not.
decimation: midnightmagic: who is holding a gun to your head, requiring you to update openssl?
midnightmagic: I'm familiar with the DER-encoding change they made, and I'm aware of, if not familiar with, every major bug in openssl since 2001 or so. Could I draw a line between releases that had bugs and releases that fixed them? No. Not even close.
decimation: why isn't anyone seriously attempting to extract the open-ssl code paths used by bitcoin?
ben_vulpes: bitcoind's built with openssl versions after 1.0.1g don't sync.
ben_vulpes: this, i gather, is news to you.
ben_vulpes: bitcoinds*
midnightmagic: decimation: Nobody, of course. Then we go back to static builds and what happens when an actual bug hits and the fork is so old that the fix doesn't backport? How divergent are we willing to accept?
midnightmagic: lol. No, it's not news to me. Yes, I already knew that.
decimation: midnightmagic: the cure to that problem is not forcing changes of an uncertain nature, but to gain certainty in the codebase
decimation: why wouldn't we want a static bitcoind that is correct for all time?
ben_vulpes: midnightmagic: you were probably just on the cusp of killing hitler too.
ben_vulpes: <decimation> why wouldn't we want a static bitcoind that is correct for all time? << we do. midnightmagic does not.
midnightmagic: well, then we have the forking risk I mentioned above: what happens when the openssl people make a fix or the internet finds a bug in the component that we depend on? If we sit on 0.9.8 or whatever the version was before those idiots got their hands on it and started adding malicious exploits, what happens?
decimation: understand the code, make sure it doesn't happen
decimation: pretending like others are there to solve your problems seems like a poor approach
midnightmagic: ben_vulpes: You can keep guessing what I mean without actually asking me, but you're no less wrong.
ben_vulpes: decimation: no but you see we need to slurp the spitoon because if we don't something terrifying that we can't reason about won't happen!
ben_vulpes: midnightmagic: no less wrong than what now?
midnightmagic: I'm not pretending that; I'm explicitly saying, divergence implies there is no reason to even *use* openssl at that point. strip out the components, use them, skip openssl entirely, and, I guess, trust in your ability to monitor the progenitor of your codebase for bugs that *explicitly affect your consensus-critical code*.
decimation: agreed, except "consenus-critical" means "compatible with what satoshi wrote" in my book
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 159666 @ 0.00052679 = 84.1105 BTC [+] {5}
midnightmagic: or, do what sipa did and write a secp256k1 lib because the openssl people don't give a shit they're wrecking dependencies.
midnightmagic: because, like I said, I think some people in there appear to be adding exploitable code with absurd frequency.
decimation: again, nobody is forcing anybody use a version of openssl they don't want to use.
midnightmagic: ehh. satoshi's code, bugs and all. we could also stick with bdb and accept the quirks like the old accidental fork post-leveldb.
midnightmagic: .. which appears to have been a gavin/hearn originated bug.
ben_vulpes: it's all well and good to say "strip out the components", i just don't buy that that's possible.
decimation: his code sucks, I don't deny, but it's the closest thing to a spec that we have
decimation: start there and iterate the code toward perfection
decimation: ideally, writing a damn spec first
midnightmagic: it's all a question of how much you trust your ability to make code that converges on consensus. are you so awesome you can either sit on an old openssl, or write your own replacements? are you so godlike you can write testcases for every corner-case, bugs and all? I know I'm not. Maybe you guys are. I dunno.

midnightmagic: For a while you were writing reddit posts and qntra articles and all sorts of stuff. Half the time you got Gavin himself "derping" as you put it, in your comments.
decimation: well, it wasn't me doing any of this stuff
midnightmagic: Or coming in here and randomly arguing with you.
decimation: he did a few times, rather unimpressively
ben_vulpes: <midnightmagic> Yeah, I mean aside from the grumbling in here which nobody but people *in here* seems to read. << how could you possible know
ben_vulpes: possibly*
ben_vulpes: <midnightmagic> Once everyone else started, you stopped. How come? << hipsters always move on, boss
midnightmagic: Unless you are implying people outside the bitcoin world are voracious readers of the -ass logs, as far as I can tell in all the articles, reddit posts, twitter feeds, etc, I don't see more than a passing mention. But even if that weren't so, really I'm a little disappointed the wind all went out of your sails, as it were.
ben_vulpes: 6/10 #spergytrollfail
decimation: I don't really read reddit or twitter, but I recall that gavin captiulated, more or less
midnightmagic: And here they are, going on little half-drunken joke-rants about how maybe they should just remove everyone else's commit access and unilaterally take control again.
decimation: who where is?
ben_vulpes: midnightmagic: reddit? twitter? d'you want to roll medium and perhaps bitcointalk.org into that as well?
midnightmagic: You guys *heads* were exploding in here, and then when "the rest" of the bitcoin-core devs took up the flag you all went quiet again. wtf?
ben_vulpes: for a grand coup of shit-as-what-don't-matter?
ben_vulpes: so we won, and you want to 3/10 troll on the topic?
midnightmagic: I presumed your head would explode if I mentioned forbes (due to its primary bitcoin author being a douchebag), or mainstream media.
midnightmagic: He didn't capitulate.
ben_vulpes: *derpboom*
trinque: gcovr outputs a nice html version of the gcov output
trinque: gonna let this run for a while, then I'll share the results
midnightmagic: What? He's pushing his BIP and pullreq, and Hearn is busy doing pullreqs which he knows doesn't have a chance of making it.
decimation: if bitcoin core devs agree with what people here are writing, why don't they venture here to make their case?
midnightmagic: .. why would they do that?
ben_vulpes: moreover, if the decisions made here trickle down to "bitcoin core", why should we pursue them further?
decimation: umm, why would we give a shit about what they are saying otherwise? I donno bro, you're the one accusing here.
midnightmagic: Besides, you went quiet well before he "capitulated".
ben_vulpes: why bang on about points that are already settled?
midnightmagic: I guess that answers my question.
midnightmagic: fair enough.
decimation: all I can say, for myself, is that folks write stuff on this channel, I would read; comment - as would others
midnightmagic: I grok.

ben_vulpes: dumpblock, eatblock, exposure of the ancient blockchain is quiet now?
ben_vulpes: i thought you said you were reading logs!?
decimation: midnightmagic: yeah actually we are mostly focusing on building a working, sane bitcoind
thestringpuller: midnightmagic: cause I fucked up my shoulder being on the computer all day at work so I read comic books instead after work.
midnightmagic: Yes, I saw all that. I mean *outwardly* quiet.
decimation: I think there's a general ambivalence about what bitcoin-devs want or do
thestringpuller: midnightmagic: there really isn't news. just gavin/hearn having a temper tantrum like a little kid because they want more subsidies for poor people.

ascii_modem: hm?
mircea_popescu: what happens if you import the 7 block alt-chain into the stator ?
ascii_modem: innit in there now? or am i confused
mircea_popescu: atm the situation is that block 363730 is forked. one chain, 6 blocks long, proceeds atop a v2 block. the current main chain proceeds from 363730 on v3 blocks.
mircea_popescu: the difference between v3 and v2 is , as best anyone can determine, actual fucking validation for the openssl nonsense. hardly avoidable.

mircea_popescu: this, obviously, would also be where to bury who knows what. but if it's there, nobody's found it yet that i know
ascii_modem: so evil wins?
mircea_popescu: how so ?
ascii_modem: we involuntarily backport a gavinism?
mircea_popescu: how's it a gavinism to begin with ?
ascii_modem: because not ours?
mircea_popescu: lemme lay out the issue here in detail, i think it's mebbe getting fudged.
mircea_popescu: so 1. it was observed that the idiots running openssl, who for historical reasons are actually wholesale pulled into bitcoin, decided to fuck up the way they do signatures, which is to say, make items signed come out in rnadom shapes. this is obviously very dangerous for bitcoin
ascii_modem: aga i recall
mircea_popescu: 2. a voluntary, user-enforced change to the protocol was proposed (iirc by petertodd) where only DER sigs are accepted anymore.
mircea_popescu: this is neither a bad idea nor in any sense avoidable. because, again, without it we'll fork daily.
mircea_popescu: it'd have been ideal to not import the satoshism in question into bitcoin, but before our time.
mircea_popescu: 3. in order to avoid the situation that happened tonight, a supposed "voting" mechanism was deployed where people switched an irrelevant byte in the blocks they mined, to go from 2 to 3, to indicate they are ready and willing to follow the new rules.
mircea_popescu: this, again, has nothing to do with us. if tomorrow miners decide as a social game to never communicate any blocks they find that hash to odd, it's THEIR problem
ascii_modem: where were the daily forks b/w january (?) and now ?
mircea_popescu: and we'll never see an odd hash block for as long as they keep at it.
mircea_popescu: lemme finish
mircea_popescu: 4. the people who voted did so as all people voting ever do : blankly, mouth only. then, someone mined a v2 block on top of a v3 block (which to them look identical) and the supposed 95% majority that promised by that vote to distinguish failed to distinguish. well, half of them or so. the other half distinguished
mircea_popescu: this utterly proves that a) the BIP system provides no benefit and should be disused ; b) the peoiple involved with all this nonsense should be muted ; c) voting does not work. nothing here is novel.
mircea_popescu: none of this in any way invalidates anything about the new chain, nor is it a point of concern that i can distinguish
mircea_popescu: done.,
ascii_modem: got plan?
mircea_popescu: ascii_modem where were the daily forks b/w january (?) and now ? << costs a little to make one, nobody cared enough. (also lots of manual intervention and general ducttaping at the miner and relayer level - bitcoin is quickly becoming an excellent makework tool, keeping idiots both employed and in a delusion of importance)
mircea_popescu: well, just let the chain reorg an' carry on, imo.
mircea_popescu: i still don't see how it affects us / anything of concern.
ascii_modem: where is my reorg?
ascii_modem: my node is dead in the water
mircea_popescu: the only problem is that the clients ain't reorging properly, which needs looking into/
mircea_popescu: which is why i said, perfect time to test our tools.
ascii_modem: i saw no signs of blocks happening at all
mircea_popescu: specifically, what happens if you put the new chain into a node
mircea_popescu: well you're only looking at mine, and mine's not relaying.
ascii_modem: ah
mircea_popescu: which it's how it's made to work, better fail than be stupid.
ascii_modem: gonna plug in the one on dulap when i get home
mircea_popescu: now, since you're synced to my level, and you have a full validating node, i see no reason to not open the listen port. do you ?
ascii_modem: open
mircea_popescu: the original point of this thing i run here was to give all comers the historical chain as is in my custody.
mircea_popescu: i do intend to replace it with a foundation one as soon as practicable.
mircea_popescu: but for now it can stay as it is, because i think more people were syncing to it.
mircea_popescu: im also going to have it unstuck, but i got a shitpile of stuff cooking atm.

ascii_modem: where?
mircea_popescu: he's in greece.
mircea_popescu: anyway, the main sufferance in my head atm is that reading the chinese stuff (in translation) clarifies in my head an objection that may well be a second major flaw to the protocol, after the "relay nodes gotta do it for the glory" : its altogether unclear a purely financial incentive is the correct solution for miners.
ascii_modem: ah!
ascii_modem: ^^^^
mircea_popescu: specifically : atm there is an arbitrage open, where you can either make money by "brute forcing" it ie hashing,
mircea_popescu: or else by fucking up other people's miners. i ordered a listing of "all the ways you could exploit a miner with crafted comms for a hash advantage"
mircea_popescu: the process hasn't returned yet, the list is already hundreds of entries long
mircea_popescu: most only apply to specific implementationms etc, but! fuck me...

mircea_popescu: sure, people don't do it yet. mostly because lazy, 2nd mostly because stupid, 3rd mostly because it's not even txn time yet.
mircea_popescu: but when that begins all this may fucking collapse under the weight of... if money's the incentive to mine mining will not exactly allign with "securing the network"

mircea_popescu: tomorrow, they will not KNOW immediately through act of god where that 25 btc comes from
ascii_modem: 12.5...
mircea_popescu: atm 99.x% of income comes through this immediate, sent-from-heaven-above channel
mircea_popescu: if as much as 66% comes that way and the other 33% has to be found out about... o baby.
mircea_popescu: hard to convey what the changes in dynamic such a thing brings.
ascii_modem: also touches on the mempool thread
mircea_popescu: really the % of income "just known" vs "information acquired" is the proper measure.
mircea_popescu: atm the split is .999 - .001 or somesuch. this will change monotoniucall;y the other way
ascii_modem: whole thing is mostly duct tape by weight
punkman: "A blockchain that does not validate under 0.5.3 is an altcoin blockchain." << both forks were valid in 0.5.3, right?
ascii_modem: so far there is no structure remotely enough to take up the weight if the duct tape is ripped out

cazalla: mircea_popescu, nope, good water in the evening and morning but the 4-5 days of 40-44 degree heat toppled em
mircea_popescu: people in heatwave places have these fine nozzles
mircea_popescu: a gallon of water makes half hour's mist, protects the plant if there's any air draft at all
mircea_popescu: otherwise, stews it. which...
cazalla: might've been the uv damage that killed em, i don't really know other than summer 2013 provide no tomatos

cazalla: thinking about making some tomato wine this coming summer but from what i've read, it isn't that nice
ben_vulpes: <mats> alright << i'd love a read
punkman: cazalla: might as well get some grapes
cazalla: unfortunately i don't really have a place suitable for a few vines
punkman: cazalla, you can grow a tall vine and have it hang from a pergola type thing
mod6: phf: hey, i was able to apply your patch for OpenBSD onto stator, but I hit this problem after boost compiled: http://dpaste.com/0WRAK16.txt any thoughts?

assbot: Logged on 04-07-2015 22:03:31; mircea_popescu: 3. in order to avoid the situation that happened tonight, a supposed "voting" mechanism was deployed where people switched an irrelevant byte in the blocks they mined, to go from 2 to 3, to indicate they are ready and willing to follow the new rules.
cazalla: punkman, no pergola but we have a clothesline i could commandeer but doubt the missus would like that heh

gernika: For any interested: using phf's patch with a few mods for amd64 I have successfully built stator on OpenBSD.
gernika: It is syncing
punkman: gernika: cool
ben_vulpes: so's this phr0k the nail in 20mb blocks' coffin?
punkman: gernika, maybe write up your process/mods
gernika: Will do. Need to sign up for the mailing list.

mircea_popescu: <punkman> gernika, maybe write up your process/mods << also a good idea. submit to mail list, now you can.
punkman: he voiced himself, could post at ml already
mircea_popescu: ah right. missed that.
shinohai: @ ben_vulpes did you need anything important when you pinged me earlier? It was like 4 am here, so I missed it

mircea_popescu: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=04-07-2015#1187156 << how exactly would they do this ? by mining a block ? at this diff ?☝︎
assbot: Logged on 04-07-2015 16:06:20; punkman: as it is 0.5.3.1/0.5.4 versions will accept blocks of version 1 and 2, allowing shitgnomes to induce forks. what's gonna happen with this?
ben_vulpes: shinohai: wanted to know about your 0.5.3.1's behavior during the phr0k
ben_vulpes: ;;later tell pete_dushenski king of the hill: "i sell cars and car backed securities"
gribble: The operation succeeded.
shinohai: Oh it is still syncing
punkman: mircea_popescu: well it costs 25btc, if they can doublespend more than that somewhere...
mircea_popescu: if that costs 25btc then any chip alf wants costs ~50 cents
mircea_popescu: cause that's "what chips cost"
punkman: yeah that was stupid, never mind
mircea_popescu: im not saying it's not possible, obviously.
punkman: but still, any derpy miner can do this
mircea_popescu: best i can discern, this is not only legitimate, but will be the ultimate end situaiton
mircea_popescu: one day, someone WILL mine a version 1 block that WILL stick.
mircea_popescu: the current power ranger derpitude is like america.
mircea_popescu: "for as long as gargle lasts"
ben_vulpes: eh, alf may actually get to the ada impl before a block v1 sticks again.
mircea_popescu: he might.
mircea_popescu: or he might not.
mircea_popescu: management's about doors.
ben_vulpes: howso?
mircea_popescu: "I shook hands with the man I did most of the talking with and they took off... I was a little shooken up but realized I made a big mistake! I forgot to shake the black police detective's hand... shit!!!"
mircea_popescu: heh. these people... adult infants i swear.
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes not a very good q.
ben_vulpes: d'you mean that management is about "you may do XXX but not YYY" when you say "doors"?
mircea_popescu: no, i mean, sure, maybe x will happen. but then again maybe x won't.
mircea_popescu: like so :
