ben_vulpes: Story has it that he returned to Hazelton, once, after a trip up the Telegraph Trail, and there he found out that he had missed the farthest cabin of all, over two hundred miles away, and there were two men up there left without supplies for the winter. Either the Government had not made the tale of the cabins clear or C. B. himself had miscalculated. However that may have been, the plain fact remained that these two men had to be
ben_vulpes: supplied -- and it was getting late in the autumn.
ben_vulpes: So C. B. at once set off north again witha pack-train of sixty-eight horses. He had no very great hope of being able to make his destination before the hard weather came on, but he traveled with all the speed possible, to get over the worst places on the trail before ths first snow fell. But as ill-luck would have it, it began to snow one night just as he came to the rock ledges where the going was bad at the best of times. It snowed
ben_vulpes: all next day and the following night without any let-up.
ben_vulpes: Every now and then a horse would miss its footing and go over, sometimes into the rushing river below, to be lost forever. Then it froze, and the going was hopeless. One by one the horses slipped and went down until it was impossible to go onward. C. B. shrugged his shoulders and altered his plans.
ben_vulpes: <photo>
ben_vulpes: Those supplies had to be delivered to the men patiently waiting for them at the far end of the trail, So he cached the supplies, hoiseted as many carcases of the dead horses as possible into trees where the wolves could not get them, and went all the way back to Hazelton to get dog-teams.

ben_vulpes: Again he started out, this time with a hundred and twenty-eight dogs, and when he came to the place where he had turned back, he was able to feed the dogs on dead horse-meat, and so get through to the cabin where to two men were waiting. But on the return trip, the going was heavy and slow and he found that the worlves had reached the cache of horse-meat and finished it up, so the dogs were short of food and though he killed one after
ben_vulpes: another to feed the rest, they weakend and died on the trail.
ben_vulpes: So it was that C. B. returned to Hazelton afoot, limping into the hotel one snowy night in midwinter, "broke to the wide", but otherwise unconcerned.

ben_vulpes: i actually think setting version to $maxint is a pretty great idea.
mircea_popescu: it really makes very little difference
ben_vulpes: why advertise version instead of just responding to network messages?
mircea_popescu: if you mined and set the block version to maxint it might.
ben_vulpes: mircea_popescu: it doesn't make a practical difference, but it pins a pointless magic variable at its "infinity" value, in the zero, one infinity mapping.
ascii_field: ben_vulpes: i brought up this point before. asked mircea_popescu why we insist on making it so easy for gavinists to wall off our net from the rubes. iirc mircea_popescu said 'fuck them all'
ben_vulpes: imho there are 3 things to be done
ben_vulpes: 1 be "honest" advertise some "version"
ben_vulpes: 2 be stealthy, advertise whatever "version" is "current" with the shitgnomes
ben_vulpes: 3 say "fu this shit is wrong and stupid", set version to $maxint
ascii_field favours 3 and stated this some time ago
ben_vulpes: i'm coming around.
ben_vulpes: perhaps should be configgable for stealth in production.
ben_vulpes: trivial patch to apply for anyone who's vested.
kakobrekla: i dont see how maxint is better than '0' except for the pride parade
ascii_field: they could still attempt to filter, but it would have to be an open declaration of war. something the gavinists are rather averse to
ben_vulpes: kakobrekla: there's logic in even the RI codebase that does derpy shit if version numbers are below some critical value.
ascii_field: aha
ben_vulpes: ergo we can only ratchet forward. like evolution.
kakobrekla: wait , and you want this to remain in?
ben_vulpes: it is *live on the network*
ascii_field: kakobrekla: which 'this' ?
ben_vulpes: has nothing to do with our codebase.
kakobrekla: ascii_field special low version logic

ascii_field: trinque: realize that without pogo, you're paying literally 10+ TIMES more per node.
ascii_field: the only solution i can presently think of is a variant of ntp over gossipd.
ascii_field: that, or external physical rtc.
