ben_vulpes: and given that the character's lost or whatevered those keys, i don't see any reason for a) that to change or b) influence how the wot regards polarbeard
ben_vulpes: and as specifically regards polarbeard, i am happy to review patches
asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: let's say tomorrow some new fella shows up, new key, and admits that he is ninjashogun who lost his key...
asciilifeform: also makes no difference ?
asciilifeform: or,
asciilifeform: 'admission against interest' ?
ben_vulpes: but register formal irritation re your inability or refusal to answer to inquiries such as http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=24-01-2016#1384093 ☝︎

asciilifeform: useful concept
mircea_popescu: <jurov> merely tasking them to understand existing code is sufficient. "and no, you're not allowed to redo it nor pull libraries" << jurov has it.
mircea_popescu: <asciilifeform> also makes no difference ? <<< quite.
mircea_popescu: what difference would it make ?
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 9300 @ 0.0005592 = 5.2006 BTC [-] {3}
polarbeard: ben_vulpes: sorry, I missed that one, I was talking about a tool like logrotate
polarbeard: which I think comes by default in all linux distros, idk about unixes though
danielpbarron: https://imgur.com/a/meH0a << here's my screenshots, completely raw and unedited
assbot: isis pgp - Album on Imgur ... ( http://bit.ly/1WIafoM )
polarbeard: all I can say is that log rotation is daily business on most decent systems, but if anybody has a rational answer against it I would not remove shitty-ghost-rotation from trb
ben_vulpes: yes, i don't quite care about 'statements against interest'
asciilifeform: danielpbarron: that key id appears to be quite illegible
danielpbarron: yeah i can't figure it out either
ben_vulpes: someone can show up tomorrow and claim to be tiberius, tat, smickles, and until they sign with keys that prove it they're either joking or some other thing i don't understand
punkman: ben_vulpes: would ya read ninjashogun's patches?
danielpbarron: "snowden" says same
ben_vulpes: punkman: for lolz most definitely
ben_vulpes: and who knows what else of interest might be in 'em
asciilifeform: danielpbarron: and whose pgptron prints 'Decryption....' ☟︎
asciilifeform: and wtf
ben_vulpes: what harm'd there be in the reading i ask
asciilifeform: danielpbarron: and why would message text be in english ☟︎
asciilifeform: and, and.
ben_vulpes: so polarbeard burned his previous identity by getting uppity with me. what of it.
asciilifeform: and i won't even comment on the nonsensical contents.
ben_vulpes: it's not submitting patches any more, so i don't see the point of the discussion.
danielpbarron: yeh, so is this still a qntra article or..?
asciilifeform: danielpbarron: potentially. can mention all of these points.
mircea_popescu: danielpbarron possibly not.
asciilifeform: 'alleged martian corpse found. but appears to be that of a dog with pig ears glued on'
ben_vulpes: mod6, polarbeard, asciilifeform, mircea_popescu: y'all follow?
asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: how to operate your wot is between you and odin
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes yeah, i think you nailed the matter, can be laid to rest.
asciilifeform: i certainly see the rationale here
ben_vulpes: provisions are in place for noobs to fuck up and recover.
ben_vulpes: you'll note i'm not handing out 1's just for showing up any more.
ben_vulpes: *and*
mircea_popescu: i'm still a slut. while that lasts.
jurov: ;;later tell mike_c just an idea - if the rating is public, you can link the logs
gribble: The operation succeeded.
asciilifeform: ;;seen mike_c
gribble: mike_c was last seen in #bitcoin-assets 11 weeks, 2 days, 23 hours, 5 minutes, and 13 seconds ago: <mike_c> let's get that thing out the door and get alf some goddamn bitcoin already
mircea_popescu: i think it's really best practice to rate in chan.
asciilifeform: anybody know him in the meat? is the fella on a polar voyage or what
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform iirc shitty job + new kid.
asciilifeform: ah
ben_vulpes: (and once again polarbeard /who are you/?)
asciilifeform tries to picture harsher job than his own, it's gotta involve petro drilling platforms with no connectivity or sumthin'
jurov: breeding pigs in space
asciilifeform: i would also like to know ~who is~ polarbeard
asciilifeform: кто ты по жизни, polarbeard ?
ben_vulpes: (while it may appear to /you/ that the mega participants in this cult are disembodied names, /we/ all know each other -- names, geographic locations, general type of employ, but /you/ do not have this [or i'll point out] any pedigree here)
jurov: eh calm down
jurov: you think that deaf idiot at the conference was really me?
asciilifeform: l0l!
ben_vulpes: how could i know, jurov! i never saw a keyid from you.
jurov: :D
ben_vulpes: heh that is an interesting hole in the keysigning party i guess
ben_vulpes: what if the person showing up is not actually the keyholder
asciilifeform: first time i was to see mircea_popescu, i actually had no idea how he will pick me out of the crowd at the airport. but he did.
ben_vulpes: same way everyone else singles you out of the crowd lol
asciilifeform: everyone, l0l
ben_vulpes: i'd seen the photos from c2, 'twas how i knew you and mike_c
mod6: heh, there was such a crowd at the exit of the security area, me and Mr. P. walked right by eachother I think.
mircea_popescu: yeah cuz crazy argentines, they're like excited sheep in the airport.
ben_vulpes: planez!
asciilifeform: dirigiblez!
ben_vulpes: polarbeard: hey can you confirm for the log that you understand what's going on with your various idents?
mod6: <+ben_vulpes> mod6, polarbeard, asciilifeform, mircea_popescu: y'all follow? << this is my 0.00000002: If you don't trust a man, no matter what his keyid is today, how can i ignore that and trust a new ident? The correct thing to do as a man, admit your mistake, and or ask for forgiveness and move on. Simple as that. We're all adults here.
polarbeard: yes, I understand, it wasn't my intention to change nick, I nuked my keys
polarbeard: I *loved* that nick
mircea_popescu: mod6 well basically, cause the concept of "a man" is pretty much the key.
ben_vulpes: ^^
mod6: And I understand that part too Mr. P. Typically, this is what seperates us from 'dog'.
mircea_popescu: now a dog you can't trust! ☟︎
ben_vulpes: polarbeard: coulda kept the nick, but registered a new key and we'd be in the same spot.
polarbeard: and definitely not ready to tell more about my true and only self
ben_vulpes: freenode nicks are not crypto.
polarbeard: maybe one day, I don't kiss in the first date
mircea_popescu: lol
mod6: For posterity: Do not do this. If you get a neg rating and you care about your wot ident, do be an adult and do as I said. Lot less problems and drama this way.
polarbeard: ben_vulpes: I asked somebody if assbot can be forced to forget the nick, it can't
polarbeard: or that somebody told me

ben_vulpes: asciilifeform: indeed!

asciilifeform: aha
ben_vulpes grimaces
ben_vulpes: approaching usable?
asciilifeform: for connoisseurs only.
ben_vulpes looking forward to it
trinque: odd that it's trivial to figure out where I moved the deedbot- node, yet... works now.
trinque: whereas on AWS, blackholed to death
asciilifeform: trinque: all of my nodes ban aws
asciilifeform: as for prb, it doesn't like talking to trb (esp. with the malleus patch)
trinque: yep, but this was just connecting to whomever he wanted
mod6: Ok moving on.
mod6: mircea_popescu, asciilifeform, ben_vulpes et. al., any further thoughts if we should clean up the code alignment (currently with spaces) post release and do a one-time clean up with tabs? ☟︎
mod6: Trying to decide if I should post 'http://dpaste.com/2EZJVXA.txt' to the ML.
ben_vulpes: mod6: appears to be a useful tool
mod6: So the difference in 'http://dpaste.com/2EZJVXA.txt' is that the block of code in Sign() is spaced with tabs. And to Mr. P.'s point it should probably be all in a file or nothing. Otherwise its mis-matched. Some with spaces, some with tabs.
mod6: I'm prefectly happy to reconstruct the patch with spaces to stay in alignment with the current (albiet unwated) spacing scheme.
mod6: And then we can re-align post release. ☟︎
mod6: Or, we can halt everything else, and create a new genesis and re-align, re-vpatch and re-sign everything.
polarbeard: mod6: honest question, why using two flags if they can't be used at the same time?
polarbeard: can't it be like a three state flag? 0 -> no enforce, 1 -> enforce low, 2 -> enforce high
polarbeard: wink wink, ternary computers
asciilifeform: polarbeard: i originally suggested this
asciilifeform: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com//?date=21-01-2016#1379610 ☝︎
assbot: Logged on 21-01-2016 13:36:27; asciilifeform: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=21-01-2016#1379490 << rather than have the statement checking for luser who set both flags high and barfing, why not have two flags, e.g., 'forceS' and 'lowhighS'.
polarbeard: that's still too flags, I searched before asking :)
polarbeard: *two
asciilifeform: polarbeard: you're still using 2 bits.
polarbeard: that's right, I only mean to simplify usage (if that matters to anybody)
ben_vulpes: i prefer my c++ as antagonistic as possible
polarbeard: also removes one conditional, as ascii noted days ago
mod6: so what we want, is three different ways: no force one way or another, force high, or force low. remember, i originally didn't want to do a force high at all. but since asciilifeform requested this, i'm entertaining this option. ☟︎
mod6: I believe we need two flags.
mod6: If we simply get rid of 'fHighS' and 'fLowS' and replace with say 'fForceS', then how can we differentiate between entering into the high or low if block?
polarbeard: not using a boolean
polarbeard: or using two booleans, ascii's way
mod6: am i not using two booleans, polarbeard?
polarbeard: but yours are contradictory
polarbeard: therefore the need for the conditional
mod6: how would one set this singular boolean?
mod6: remember, i want a default state to *not* require a flag at all.
polarbeard: you can't, using a single boolean, do you mean an int?
mod6: right, i'd prefer not to use an int.
ben_vulpes: mod6: why not?
mod6: because it causes confusion to have -forceS=0 (low) and -forceS=1
polarbeard: you can use signeds, and then -1 0 1
mod6: from a user standpoint, i feel like its more conusing anyway.
polarbeard: 0 is the default, you may give -forceS=0 though, but that has no effect
mod6: polarbeard: keep in mind that i considered all of this over a week ago -- and decided against it. so yeah, i have put a lot of thought into this.
mod6: added complexity will result in bugs.
asciilifeform observes that this thread has already taken up more space than the patch. ☟︎
ben_vulpes: i have a hard time giving a shit about the ergonomics when it's covered in finger-snipping blades already.
ben_vulpes: deck chairs.

mod6: ^
asciilifeform: ~we~
mod6: and asciilifeform, keep in mind that this is a *must* fix. i think that is vastly important that we discuss this in channel.
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 11100 @ 0.00055728 = 6.1858 BTC [-]
ben_vulpes: ideally such a thread would result in a philosophical statement that'd guide future flags.
asciilifeform: mod6: ok. the rationale for my suggested thing was that no-flag ought to revert to 100% classical behaviour
mod6: agreed.
asciilifeform: as in exactly same code.
asciilifeform: high s variant is exquisitely useful for when we get a pool.
mod6: which is why i added that part.
asciilifeform: low s is useful so mircea_popescu can get his tx out without waiting a week.
asciilifeform: what remains ?
mod6: i think there seems to be questions around why i have two booleans.
mod6: i believe my implementation to be correct. ☟︎

ben_vulpes: which is not the blessed openssl, but...
asciilifeform: ah ok
ben_vulpes: appears to be a wrapper around do_sign to some extent or another
ben_vulpes: gah this return value shit is hilarious
ben_vulpes: mod6: what's the rationale behind including the commented out printfs?
mod6: so the deal there is that was just some debugging info -- that may be useful to someone at some point.
mod6: there was a discussion around this, and decided to leave them in as a result. will dig up...
mod6: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=21-01-2016#1379707 ☝︎
assbot: Logged on 21-01-2016 15:20:05; mod6: does anyone have any pref on the commented out DEBUG statements for the finalized one? just remove them?
mod6: anyway, asciilifeform yeah, i just grabbed that entire bit of code from here: https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/blob/v0.9.3/src/key.cpp#L202-L227
assbot: bitcoin/key.cpp at v0.9.3 · bitcoin/bitcoin · GitHub ... ( http://bit.ly/1PxUUSi )
mod6: I'm not an expert on the openssl internals. If you think I should not trust ECDSA_do_sign and reimplment with ECDSA_sign, I can. ☟︎
mod6: i suppose if we continue to use ECDSA_sign, we can continue to use: memcpy(&vchSig[0], pchSig, nSize);
ben_vulpes: that'd be closest to the original code
ben_vulpes: and imho preferrable for that reason.
mod6: true
mod6: not sure what to do abut this tho:
mod6: unsigned char pchSig[10000];
ben_vulpes: perhaps fixing magic numbers is out of scope for a patch to force s-values?
mircea_popescu: ^
mircea_popescu goes to read teh log
ben_vulpes: mod6: are you referring to fixing the magic numbers?
mircea_popescu: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=25-01-2016#1384722 << well, the proposal was for you to release current, 99996 or what it comes to, after which take a step back and do a clean of the spaces, make it 99995 ☝︎
assbot: Logged on 25-01-2016 01:04:29; mod6: mircea_popescu, asciilifeform, ben_vulpes et. al., any further thoughts if we should clean up the code alignment (currently with spaces) post release and do a one-time clean up with tabs?
mircea_popescu: so you get a week off or something, during which people just run teh script and sign the results.
mircea_popescu: even a mod6 needs a week off now and again.

assbot: Logged on 25-01-2016 01:10:06; mod6: And then we can re-align post release.

mircea_popescu: aha. who're you ?
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 16255 @ 0.00056495 = 9.1833 BTC [+] {3}
mod6: Ok sounds good mircea_popescu. I'll stop my current work on the high/low patch. I'll spend this week getting the changes [.wot in the pwd, and mechanical post-patch hash checking] in V [v99996] released. Then I'll immediately begin work on a re-alignment of all the patches we currently are distributing.
mircea_popescu: wait.
mod6: ok
mircea_popescu: what's your current work on teh patch ?
aknix: was actually just seeing if the channel was public again. Used to stop by now and then.
mod6: Nothing more than "send to the list", if its current form 'http://dpaste.com/2EZJVXA.txt' is acceptable.
mircea_popescu: that's kinda what i had in mind too.
mod6: Ok. I can get that done tonight yet.
mircea_popescu: i guess i unwittingly confused you, sorry about that. the S-patch was not actually intended to mark a new release did it ?
mod6: Oh no.
mod6: But it probably would have been the last thing to go into the tree before a release patch.
mod6: (a vpatch to tie them all together)
mircea_popescu: oh ok, my bad. so what i was thinking here is : a) finish the patch ; b) do all the other stuff you were going to do in your own time ; c) when ready make a new version ; d) take a week off, during which everyone [who cares to] can write and run a script to / /
mircea_popescu: after which back to normal. that sound sane ?
mod6: Yeah, sounds good. Thanks, want to get all of this done in a sane order and timely fashion.
mircea_popescu: so we'll have the 99996 > 99995 be "all tabulation, machine checkable"
mircea_popescu: and while it'd be tempting to overload it with stuff like moving the {, i would think it's better not to. make it simple and sweet to check.
mircea_popescu: stuff like { much easier to fix as patches/code is reviewed, by and by.
mod6: agreed. let's try to keep it just down to the tabs for now.
mod6: im sure i might need some more guidence when I get to working on that part, but we can cross that bridge when we come to it.
mircea_popescu: this'd be the last juncture at which people who seriously and staunchly are against the space to tab switch should raise hell. ☟︎
mircea_popescu: and yes ben_vulpes is writing a style guide from what i understand
mod6: yeah, and this should make it all easier going forward to create the vpatch. overall, a good move sooner rather than later imho.
mircea_popescu: >D
mod6: heheheh
ben_vulpes: wutnostahp

mircea_popescu: ECDSA_sign() is wrapper function for ECDSA_sign_ex with kinv and rp set to NULL ; ECDSA_do_sign() is wrapper function for ECDSA_do_sign_ex with kinv and rp set to NULL. ECDSA_sign_ex() computes a digital signature of the dgstlen bytes hash value dgst using the private EC key eckey and the optional pre-computed values kinv and rp. The DER encoded signatures is stored in sig and it's length is returned in sig_len. (sig
mircea_popescu: must point to ECDSA_size bytes of memory, the parameter type ~is ignored~). Meanwhile ECDSA_do_sign_ex() computes a digital signature of the dgst_len bytes hash value dgst using the private key eckey and the optional precomputed values kinv and rp. The signature is returned in a newly allocated ECDSA_SIG structure (or NULL on error).
mircea_popescu: geddit ?

assbot: Logged on 25-01-2016 02:22:44; mircea_popescu: this'd be the last juncture at which people who seriously and staunchly are against the space to tab switch should raise hell.
mircea_popescu: the do version ultimately returns return ecdsa->meth->ecdsa_do_sign(dgst, dlen, kinv, rp, eckey); while the no-do version just calls the do version.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform not sign them.
asciilifeform: gonna reject because my emacs emits a mixture of tabs'n'spaces ?
mircea_popescu: it does ?!
asciilifeform: i have it align columns when possible
asciilifeform: so now i gotta write an elisp for trb
asciilifeform: whereas before i did not
mircea_popescu: what non-tabulated collumns do you use ?!

mircea_popescu: how do you define "clean" ? if you meaqn absolutely clean, not only does not such industry exist, but in point of fact no such hygiene exists either.
jurov: that was not my point. i wanted to say, there are cubic kilometers of liabilities likely to happen
mircea_popescu: well, look at it the other way : maybe it finally provides the much needed impetuus to force the polluters upstream to clean up their act.
jurov: maybe.
mircea_popescu: if there's nothing but textile mill on the veh, textile mill gets to poison the river.
mircea_popescu: if there's both mill and hydro plant, well... finally ecoregulations can be forced on the mill. and if it doesn't like it... fuck you, move to germany.

asciilifeform: http://trilema.com/2016/heres-where-you-forget-about-wind-power-as-an-alternative-source-of-power/#comment-116338
assbot: Here's where you forget about "wind power" as an alternative source of power. on Trilema - A blog by Mircea Popescu. ... ( http://bit.ly/1VlkqOC )
mircea_popescu: anyway, re nuclear. while it is dirty in a certain way, it has an advantage nothing else does : it would work just as well with the sun turned off. this is a big deal, fundamentally. whether it means anything in practice or not... well...
mircea_popescu: (before you say "so do fossils" - think again. where do you get the oxygen ?)
mircea_popescu: contrary to aqll the brouhaha at the time, about how "mankind has found the way to end itself" bla bla, nothing could be further from the truth. nuclear power provides humanity a hard guarantee against large scale catastrophe that no other life has, nor could have without thios particular tech.
mircea_popescu: it quite literally represents security from thermodynamics, in a way very similar to how the bombs were marketed at the time to represent "Security from the enemies".
mircea_popescu: (and yes this has been tested in practice, it's not at all theoretical. nuclear subs are more important for THIS reason than whatever justified their existence at the time.)
jurov: 99% of nuclear is unusable without ample access to cooling water
mircea_popescu: sure. doesn't do much for this discussion.
mircea_popescu: if the sun does turn off, you'll have more ice than you'll know what to do with.
mod6: <+PeterL> http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=25-01-2016#1385014 << hydro power is proportional to water drop, you can't really get much power out of a flat river like missississippi << very true. the one we were discussing yesterday is at St. Anthonys Falls. Which apparently helped the city long ago get its start. Its not very big, and since they put in the dam, apparenlty this has eroded the origin ☝︎
assbot: Logged on 25-01-2016 05:00:08; BingoBoingo: mod6: When do you think it would make sense to dam the Mississippi river to generate hydroelectric power for mining?
mod6: al falls away and now is back further?
mod6: Need to look this up quick.
mircea_popescu: also - the way nuclear is dirty is very peculiar. pollution in the sense of poison - kills everyone. pollution in the sense of nuclear leakeage - does not. it just shortens lifespan and increases the angle of attack at DNA research.
jurov: don't forget geothermal, better accessible and will keep working for millions of years
mircea_popescu: it does not present an actual species threat for any species.
mircea_popescu: and yeah, geothermal. in fact that'll be the competition in case of new ice age. nuclear vs geothermal.
mircea_popescu: would make a pretty splendid sf novel too.
mircea_popescu: (all this talk re new ice age is quite on point, incidentally. the crazed us cultists of pseudoscience are loudly proclaiming a narrative bluntly contradictory to the data. altogether more likely we're headed for cool.)

thestringpuller: you have to keep the economy healthier than your enemies so you can outproduce them.
