thestringpuller: this whole notion of 7 billion people transacting daily seems...fucktarded
asciilifeform: 'From 2003 until 2006, Intel paid $1 Billion to Dell in exchange not to ship any computers using CPUs made by AMD. Intel held OEMs ransom, encouraging them to only ship Intel CPUs by way of volume discounts and threatening OEMs with low-priority during CPU shortages. Intel engaged in false advertising, and misrepresenting benchmark results. '
thestringpuller: I've sent 3 transactions this year alone.
asciilifeform: ^ intel & microshit, one is nothing without the other
asciilifeform: 'Intel does much more than just silicon. Hidden inside their design centers are the keepers of x86, and this includes the people who write the compilers for x86 processors.' << while there is in fact an intel compiler, the article is here revealed as catastrophically braindamaged

thestringpuller: this is the only esolang I've used: http://esolangs.org/wiki/chef
asciilifeform: 'The primary design goal MUMPS was to create code that, once written, can never be maintained by anyone ever again. The syntax is somewhat reminiscent of FORTRAN and SNOBOL (no, not the toilet cleaner), only much, much worse. Ironically, being inflicted with mumps (the disease) is much more pleasant that actually working with MUMPS (the language). A more apt name for the language certainly would have been EXPLOSIVE-DIARRHEA; I
asciilifeform: ’m sure they could have even worked SNOBOL (the language, or, heck, even the toilet cleaner) in there as well.'

mircea_popescu: except by the time you're done with paranthesizing it's no longer simple.
asciilifeform: what parenthesizing.
mircea_popescu: in fact the reason precedence even exists is because it's a schelling point for lazy.
asciilifeform: eat one by one.
mircea_popescu: well suppose i don't want 2+3*10 to yield 50

pete_dushenski: "Saudi Arabia stood accused on Tuesday of trying to wreck the Paris climate summit in order to protect its future as one of the world’s largest oil producers." << wow. 'wreck' is so apt they had to use it twice. 1st su, 2nd us. now the only thing missing is a shiny red star in bahamas' (faux) fur hat and you'd swear you had deja vu.
pete_dushenski: "A US supreme court justice has suggested that black students may benefit from the end of affirmative action admissions policies in US universities because many are “pushed ahead too fast” and should go to “lesser schools” instead."
pete_dushenski: "The comments by Antonin Scalia came as conservatives on the court gave a sympathetic hearing to a white student who claims she was deprived of a place at the University of Texas due to her race."
pete_dushenski: "Abigail Fisher graduated two years ago from Louisiana State University instead, but the court was warned that the number of minority students on US college campuses could “plummet” if her appeal against UT is successful – something Scalia suggested could be no bad thing."
pete_dushenski: "“There are those who contend that it does not benefit African Americans to get them into the University of Texas where they do not do well, as opposed to having them go to a less-advanced school, a slower-track school, where they do well,” he said."
pete_dushenski: "“I’m just not impressed by the fact that the University of Texas may have fewer [black students if the admissions policy changes]. Maybe it ought to have fewer. And maybe, when you take more, the number of blacks, really competent blacks, admitted to lesser schools, turns out to be less,” he added. “I don’t think it stands to reason that it’s a good thing for the University of Texas to admit as many
pete_dushenski: blacks as possible.”"

pete_dushenski: why can't ruskies afford to sell out saudis ?
mircea_popescu: they'll get a little, but they'll get less than they would gladly take and WAY less than what they'd need to keep the charade going.
mircea_popescu: pete_dushenski because without saudis their whole southern flank collapses, and that's how they had a famine in leningrad last time.

mircea_popescu: sooo... here's an idea for a consumer company : dropship nuts.
mircea_popescu: have a website, with a selection of nut packages. some serving sizes of peanuts, pistachios, whatever.
mircea_popescu: then allow user to specify an image file and an address
mircea_popescu: print the image on the package and mail them over.
mircea_popescu: call it Deez Nuts
mircea_popescu: or w/e, Dee'z Nuts. have Dee the DD blondy your mascot, you can re-use all the godaddy advertising gimmicks.
mircea_popescu: anyone wanna do it ? you need a few k sq ft of warehouse, somewhere where it's cheap (michigan ?), a coupla packaging machines, a plastic printer and a few workers, no prior skills required that's it. 50k for advertising 50k for the gear gets you wll going. buy the nuts in bulk for cents, sell the packs for dollars, you're looking at 99% margins.

Every bitcoin transaction gets inputs, which refer to previous outputs being spent. Every input has the txid and the signature to prove that it is allowed, plus an amount and script in every output. What this presentation will mostly be ab
mircea_popescu: out is the question of whether all of this data is equally important.
mircea_popescu: In particular, we are going to be talking about signatures. It's important to realize here that signatures are really only needed for fully-validating nodes. As a light-weight client, you are not validating signatures, even though they are part of the transactions you still have to download them. If you are using a full-node that is syncing historical data, you don't actually validate all of the signatures in there. Cu
mircea_popescu: rrently there is a mechanism in there using checkpoints, which we want to deprecate soon, but the result will still be that we're not validating all signatures from years ago in deep history."

mircea_popescu: "Wouldn't it be nice to just drop the signatures? The reason why we can't do this is because the signature is part of the transaction hash. If we would just drop the sig from the transaction, the block wouldn't validate, you wouldn't be able to prove an output spend came from that transaction, so that's not something we could do.

As an example, marketers often divide spend by total customers to calculate SAC rather than just those customers that were
