punkman: "We implement segregated witness right now, soon. What we do is discount the witness data by 75% for block size. So this enables us to say we allow 4x as many signatures in the chain. What this normally corresponds to, with a difficult transaction load, this is around 75% capacity increase for transactions that choose to use it. Another way of looking at it, is that we raise the block size
punkman: to 4 MB for the witness part, but the non-witness has same size. The reason for doing the discount, last slide, the reason for doing this discount is that it disincentivizes UTXO impact. A signature that doesn't go into the UTXO set, can be pruned."

nubbins`: pete_dushenski maybe, maybe not. either way, he's gonna spend $12k/year on living space
nubbins`: whether that's paying off a too-high mortgage or paying off someone ELSE'S too-high mortgage is his choice
nubbins`: i feel there's more value in one than the other, ymmv
nubbins`: renting is fine if you wanna work forever
nubbins`: if you'd rather work less as time goes on, well, maybe buy?
nubbins`: put another way, let's say you rent for a year. at the end of the year, what do you have to show for it?
pete_dushenski: ok, let's work the with 'maybe house will never again be worth 200k' condition. why not give 12k to landlord instead of bank ? will landlord not put that money to more practicable and local use, having a higher probability of bettering renter's station ?
nubbins`: probably not, no.
pete_dushenski: oh ? how do you figure ?
pete_dushenski: because i'd see local landlord and caring more about my town than some bank in toronto

nubbins`: but i'm not building community spaces out of my profit either
nubbins`: i'm spending it on my greedy self
pete_dushenski: you're a small time landlord though, and even still i'm sure you don't buy much of anything at usg-megacorp-retail-centre
nubbins`: agreed
pete_dushenski: you probably buy local, neh ?
nubbins`: i try!
pete_dushenski: of course you do !
pete_dushenski: that's my point.
pete_dushenski: that landlords, like yourself, like myself, give a shit about the places they live MORE than the banks from far-off lands.
pete_dushenski: it's not binary, of course, just that we care ~more~
pete_dushenski: this, then, in turn benefits the tenants, our tenants
nubbins`: on the whole, i disagree
nubbins`: i buy local not because i'm a landlord but because i'm not an idiot
nubbins`: most landlords spend all their money at big box stores
nubbins`: where maybe 5-10 cents of every dollar they spend stays in the community
nubbins`: MAYBE
nubbins`: the rest goes to the waltons, or the irvings, or whomever
nubbins`: most landlords around here are more properly called slumlords

mircea_popescu: you're not obligated to accept txn you don't want to accept.

mircea_popescu: "Implication for users: GetMedianTimePast() always trails behind the current time, so a transaction locktime set to the present time will be rejected by nodes running this release until the median time moves forward. To compensate, subtract one hour (3,600 seconds) from your locktimes to allow those transactions to be included in mempools at approximately the expected time."
mircea_popescu: translates to "and the dumb shit doesn't even work anyway"
thestringpuller: it never really did. the point of nlock was to hand a transaction over to someone in a "will" like form
thestringpuller: peter todd just really wanted the blockchain to enforce the time limit
thestringpuller: (since before it didn't write nlock tx's to blockchain. they would just sit in mempool)
mircea_popescu: whatever. you can put an arbitrary number in your txn anyway, and usg-time's never going to be anything but an arbitrary number.

assbot: Logged on 07-12-2015 17:24:44; trinque: prohibition drives the price through the roof, which allows the whole thing to sustain itself.

trinque: how about prohibition of a product that sells itself?
mircea_popescu: what does this mean ?
trinque: in the conversation linked, nubbins was discussing the newfie coke heads. seems like quite a task to stop the massive demand there.
trinque: meanwhile prohibiting the product limits and complicates the supply
mircea_popescu: that may be. but consider the situatuon of real estate. is "housing" a product that "sells itself" ?
mircea_popescu: what is the principal driver of price in real estate ?
mircea_popescu: (here's a hint : imbecile argentines imagine a tiny 1000 sqft apt is worth 150-200k usd, in their shit town. why ? why, because the government's been printing money, and people kept "investing" it, there's about two to five trillion pesos that have to be wiped out of the economy before it can return to working)
trinque: this is what confounds a simple answer to your question.
mircea_popescu: the cost of the blowjob, and of the gram, and of the bed are not a function of how forbidden it is.
mircea_popescu: they're a functrion of how much money ios sloshing around.
mircea_popescu: approach it from the other angle, the demand elasticity. take cokehead with $1000 income and a $1000 drug habit.

mircea_popescu: on the other hand, if i were a fucktarded argentine borrowing for this, i'd owe ~2.5mn peso principal + 300k or so a year interest + whatever you figure the devaluation risk costs me. over a 30 year period (heh, you gonna work for 30 years ? srsly ?) this comes to at the very least 40k a month. that's just about 2750 dollars.
