BingoBoingo: mats: Where is it bleeding now?
jurov: Where is v.py available to download?
jurov: even v.pl, for that matter... :)
jurov: http://wiki.bitcoin-assets.com/the_real_bitcoin does not indicate the thing exists at all
assbot: the_real_bitcoin [bitcoin assets wiki] ... ( http://bit.ly/238YcVW )
jurov: and search.b-a won't find anything immediately useful
jurov: i do have it, just trying on another computer, and said to myself - let's try this from perspective of newcomer
jurov: looks like i got stymied right at very first step
ben_vulpes: "read everything on the mailing list and call me in the morning"
jurov: rly.
jurov: okay, adding that to wiki
kakobrekla: and once mailing list is thousands of pages, still the way to go?
ben_vulpes: it's a joke!
kakobrekla: hard to say.
ben_vulpes: some truth in it.
mod6: <+jurov> even v.pl, for that matter... :) << this is available in the ML & on the foundation homepage.
mod6: <+jurov> http://wiki.bitcoin-assets.com/the_real_bitcoin does not indicate the thing exists at all << this should probably say something separate about V. but the build script grabs it as part of the build & verify proces.
assbot: the_real_bitcoin [bitcoin assets wiki] ... ( http://bit.ly/238YcVW )
mod6: *process
mod6: so in reality, no you don't need V or anything. i think if you just follow dpb's wiki steps it's all good.
mod6: but it really does need to be updated for v99996 today.
mod6: trinque can you pu'http://dpaste.com/2VBF9V2.txt' in there (maybe run a dos2unix on it first) with a title like the other one ala 'build-bitcoind-V99996K.sh' or whatever?
mod6: danielpbarron: do you wanna update the wiki as soon as there is a get-able deedbot entry for this?
mod6: i guess i could do the deedbot part, not sure how to work it th
mod6: tho
mod6: oh looks like you can just pass it a dpaste
jurov: i have added short info to that page
jurov: yes it's on foundation homepage, i was blind

ben_vulpes: hey, stan's bouncer died!
mod6: <+danielpbarron> what needs to be changed? just the url to the .sh ? or are some of the steps different now? << yeah, i think the steps are going to be fine, other than the URL to the new script (when we finally get it deedbotted) and the name of the script.

ben_vulpes: so what is the thing to be done with korsgaard's key?
mircea_popescu: nfi.
mircea_popescu: ideally, you go read the whole fucking thing, rebase and sign as your own.
mircea_popescu: then i can exclude his key and pretend he never lived.
ben_vulpes: > read buildroot
ben_vulpes: mk
mircea_popescu: so then nothing.
ben_vulpes: mod6: do you expect me to have korsgaard's key in my personal keyring when running build-bitcoind-V99996K.sh?
mircea_popescu: and this is generally the way it goes. anyone wants to "take wget out" - fine. the path to this is you write your own wget, sign it and use that.
mircea_popescu: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=31-01-2016#1390293 << sucks, huh. but good find. ☝︎
assbot: Logged on 31-01-2016 00:27:16; jurov: looks like i got stymied right at very first step
mod6: i actually think if you follow the steps in the wiki, jurov is incorrect, you don't need to know anything about V. or download it seperately, or anything. the script does it all for you.
mod6: same as the makefiles will do.
ben_vulpes: ;;later tell trinque hey buddy looks like your makefiles depend on keys in the personal keyring
gribble: The operation succeeded.
mircea_popescu: mod6 well on the theory he didn't want to run the script.
mircea_popescu: i suppose this qualifies as advanced use tho
mod6: yeah, cause if you don't run the script, then you need to set up everything, including the rotor, buildroot & copying around the config, and tons of other stuff.
mircea_popescu: yeah. and, of course, the code is the standard, so just read the script as a guide :D
mircea_popescu: funny how this shit works.
mircea_popescu: anyway, in fairness : we had a little bit of excited & explosive growth here past coupla months, will take a little to digest it into proper form.
shinohai: That script is like cliff notes, I couldn't live without yet.
mircea_popescu: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=31-01-2016#1390311 << yup that's how it works. simplicity is the mother of inventions. ☝︎

assbot: Logged on 30-01-2016 18:36:47; mod6: ok, well i did just rip out all the sync/init/mirrors parts of V
mod6: ight hold in our minds.
mircea_popescu: well i am unaware of this "cd based security paradigm" as anything other than a chewing-gum and ductape concoction of no practical consequence.
mod6: sure.
mircea_popescu: nodes are internet machines, they stay on the internet and are expected to work safely and securely online. end of story.
mircea_popescu: museum nodes can be created as a derivative work at any time, they'll be as funky as pornography is. not real sex.
mod6: i might regret the notion of using wget someday, but I figured it possibly better than writing some native code in perl that would most likely utilize some module, or even importation of the module directly.
mod6: the only real way around this is for me to write all of that stuff by hand.
mircea_popescu: it's a sore spot, but it's treated properly imo : quite clearly in the open.
mod6: which, might eventually happen.
mircea_popescu: and the avenue to fix it is also well known. wget is open source. rebase.
mod6: *nod*
mircea_popescu: for that matter you know, bdb is also a piece of shit. and openshitmypants and so on.
mod6: <+ben_vulpes> mod6: do you expect me to have korsgaard's key in my personal keyring when running build-bitcoind-V99996K.sh? << yup, this is how it works if we want to verify the buildroot package cryptographically.
mod6: now, we could have automated this into a temp keyring
mircea_popescu: i honestly dun see what the problem is here. what is the problem here ?
mircea_popescu: so the key gotta be in keyring. so ?
mod6: i guess that may not be horribru. ask users to gather up pub keys, place in a separate dir other than .wot, import them into temp keyring, use them, and then remove the temp keyring when finished.
mircea_popescu: and this gains us what ? more inconvenience ?
mircea_popescu: gpg --import not gnarly enough ?
mod6: basically.
mircea_popescu: logcially, if you're not willing to import a guy's key, why the fuck are you pulling his code. write your own or w/e.
mod6: exactly.
mircea_popescu: not like if trb.buildroot pops up tomorrow i wouldn't at least consider it.
ben_vulpes: asciilifeform likes to scream about how dumb the keyring is
mircea_popescu: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=31-01-2016#1390320 <<< it's a lot easier to pretend cds are the golden standard of archival while sitting on a flac collection safely kept on a rpm hdd. ☝︎

mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes yeah. he also screams about how dumb usg is, hasn't yet moved away.
mod6: i think his 'p' or whatever the name is, is going to do away with that -- least iirc.
ben_vulpes: i'm struggling to build a cohesive mental model for the right way to approach this gordian knot
mircea_popescu: whining in here is the right way.
ben_vulpes: i'm just fumbling in the dark
mircea_popescu: no hint of sarcasm or anything.
mircea_popescu: even if it usually turns out to have been a stupid idea/whatever, still whining in here is the right way to approach teh knot.
ben_vulpes: ;;later tell trinque i may be exceptionally retarded today, but is there a reason why shit/Manifest.sha256 doesn't contain a hash for buildroot?
gribble: The operation succeeded.
mircea_popescu: im pretty sure there's a hash in the script
mircea_popescu: the one that makes the rotor.
mircea_popescu: mod6 what's the scriopt called ? the one that makes rotor.sh ?
ben_vulpes: build-bitcoind-whateverk.sh?
mircea_popescu: fuck i don't even know what anything's called.
ben_vulpes: mircea_popescu: i'm using trinque's experimental makefiles.
mircea_popescu: it really should have a name, apparerntly i saved it variously as press.sh vconfig.sh etc
mircea_popescu: ah ah nm me
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: cd's aren't magic, but a cd press might serve a useful purpose for distributing samizdat that lasts.
mod6: ben_vulpes: the buildroot hash is in deps/Manifest.sha512
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo sure.
mircea_popescu: and generally - for bringing internet water into teh deserts.

ascii_rear: mircea_popescu: and your online build of buildroot et al?
mircea_popescu: also won't matter.
mod6: <+ascii_rear> mod6: see anything that doesn't make sense ? << not yet. was just poking through how you load this thing up (in src/shiva.h|.cpp) - also looking at how to define more operations
ascii_rear: mod6: the hacking.txt that comes with classical tinyscheme is helpful
mod6: i did dig through all of the src/shiva code too - but since im not super cluded on scheme yet, dont quite know everything thats going on there.
ascii_rear: there is also an 'example.c' floating around on the net that has moar examples
mod6: saw a lot of func pointers that seem to expose an interface into the thing tho
mod6: unless im wrong about what that was doing.
mod6: i guess that was all in scheme.h
mod6: i gotta digest all of this a bit. heheh.
mod6: thanks for the pointers.
ascii_rear: mod6: it took me ages to fully grasp how tinyscheme works. actually had to finish sicp for the basic mechanics of schematron to fully fall into place in my mind.
mod6: the thing thats a bit backwards is trying to learn how scheme works through the lens of C/C++
ascii_rear: the important message here is something else, the shiva console is not to be considered publicly exposable in any sense
mod6: for sure, just like you wouldn't want to expose your rpc port to 0.0.0.0
ascii_rear: it is intended to be a more dangerous version of existing rpc, eventually you will be able to flip arbitrary bits in the data structures with it
mod6: ah. right, with the debugging parts enabled. yeah, danger lurks.
ascii_rear: nono my point is
ascii_rear: it lurks ~now~
ascii_rear: tinyscheme is not in any sense hygienic.
mod6: point taken.
ascii_rear: (exploitable overflow was actually found in it, in 2012)
ascii_rear: but, 1) there is a skull on the patch for a reason 2) there is not actually an alternative to tinyscheme.
mod6: oh, ok. was that ever repaired? or isn't updated? i thought I saw the guys comment on his website that said "until i'm dead" or something?
mod6: was I dreaming?
ascii_rear: mod6: that one - fixed
mod6: ok
ascii_rear: but reading the code has filled me with disgust
ascii_rear: !s idiomatic
assbot: 16 results for 'idiomatic' : http://s.b-a.link/?q=idiomatic
ascii_rear: see latest thread
mod6: was tinyscheme a beter alt than minischeme simply because of its size and ability to fit in head?
ascii_rear: no
ascii_rear: it is a descendent of minischeme
ascii_rear: that has programmable i/o ports and arrays
ascii_rear: we can't actually use a scheme that lacks these.
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 116400 @ 0.00055816 = 64.9698 BTC [-] {4}
mod6: ah
ascii_rear: otherwise i would have used classical minischeme.
mod6: im gonna keep reading scim see what i can figure out.
ascii_rear: tinyscheme is the smallest (loc and complexity-wise) schematron that has these necessaries.
ascii_rear: scim?
mod6: i think i wanna try to work from tinyscheme/shiva -> C++ interface with bitcoind -- seems a more sane way to figure this thing out.
mod6: rahter than the reverse.
ascii_rear: ah
ascii_rear: there is much to be done there, incl. reimplementing the classical rpc hooks
mod6: err ya sicp
mod6: my bad
mod6: anyway, yeah, i feel like if we bring this thing into the fold, i aught to know what the back end is doing.
ascii_rear: but eventually we ought to be able to do spiffy things like writing my memory usage grapher ~entirely in shiva~, etc
ascii_rear: adding custom friend-or-foe stuff, or whatnov
ascii_rear: *whatnot
mod6: sure, there seems to be a bunch of power here in this tool - would be nice to harness that and make some useful stuff.
ascii_rear: the nice thing about scheme vs. some random bozo half-lisp is that it is an actual STANDARD
ascii_rear: so potentially we can write our own, eventually, to replace tiny.
ascii_rear: (there are hard tests for compliance, can run these)
mod6: there suprisingly isn't ~that~ much code.
ascii_rear: aha, as i said, it is the smallest known
ascii_rear: but very gnarly nonetheless.
ascii_rear: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=31-01-2016#1390327 << can we at least have the option of loading from local dir instead of www ? ☝︎

mod6: you can do that just fine.
mod6: you don't ~need~ to run the init command at all
mod6: just create a 'patches' and '.seals' dir in the same dir as v.pl and you're golden
ascii_rear: what would be handy is if the thing could spit out a manifest of all the crap it expects to find
ascii_rear: i was thinking of buildroot
ascii_rear: and the deps
mod6: oh for like the makefiles and stuff? i think we were just gonna put the stuff in the shit dir iirc.
mod6: but then it pulls all kinds of stuff.
mod6: well, a dozen or so ya.
mod6: but anyway, if we wanna stuff all of that stuff into shit as well, then we need to hack on buildroot to not rsync it -- now we've forked our own.
mod6: or are you saying something different?
ascii_rear: nah the very same
mod6: i went down this road probably like in december or november or something. just was its own ball of wax.
shinohai: ok mod6 test completed, did not have to set set the perl option before building

BingoBoingo: yeah
BingoBoingo: Always has
pete_dushenski: damn. and here i was thinking i was fucking zheng he.
pete_dushenski: "Because of this EPA wall, the market is currently dominated by low-level ethanol blends, such as “E10” (10 percent ethanol and 90 percent gasoline). That has prevented mid-level ethanol fuels, such as E25 or E30, from widely reaching American consumers. If allowed full market access, mid-level ethanol products like E25 or E30 could prove quite popular with American consumers, who are increasingly concerned
pete_dushenski: with fuel economy."
pete_dushenski: ^from teddy cruz, who just lost alf's vote by the looks of it
pete_dushenski: how and by what fluke of fisics cruz thinks that eXX burns ~more~ efficiently than 100% gas is anyone's guess
pete_dushenski: additionally, with a gallon of gas a ~$1 stateside, NO ONE GIVES A SHIT ABOUT FUEL ECONOMY

pete_dushenski: bbias
BingoBoingo: pete_dushenski: It's just residual pregnancy fog affecting your brain. It'll clear in 17 years
mircea_popescu: anyway. in no sense is ethanol LESS fuel intensive than gasoline. the alternatives are oil->refinery->gasoline for gasoline, or oil->refinery->chem feed->chem plant->fertilizer->farm->corn->ethanol plant->ethanol.
mircea_popescu: you get about 1 to 5% less mileage per barrel in the 2nd approach, as should be obvious. you neverthelss get 5x the "jobs" and 20 to 50x the imaginary industrial assets.

asciilifeform: it is actually quite feasible to have a patch that 'touches everything' but is visually inspectable in three minutes - e.g., mod6's proposed 'release patch' that merely tacks a comment to the top of every file.

mircea_popescu: anyway, it's miserable design while at it. seriously, X pays Y for his imposition upon Z ?
asciilifeform: and if we calculate the ~long-term~ cost for me of storing 14kB, not only the disk, but the mains current, migrating from disk to disk, parity checks nightly, etc. - this is a pretty penny
mircea_popescu: but this was also discussed variously and from multiple angles.
asciilifeform: esp. since i gotta keep storing it for so long as i care to have any dealing with bitcoin
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform technically, you don't get to factor back-ups, because the chain itself is its best backup.
asciilifeform: a backup that is not under my control is not a backup at all.
asciilifeform: can call it something else, it is useful, aha, but NOT backup.
mircea_popescu: right but you see what i mean.
asciilifeform: miserable design, like carnot engine is miserable, but it is quite unclear that a less-miserable alternative physically is possible
mircea_popescu: no argument.
asciilifeform: but yes, it fundamentally it violates the principle i stated here as 'nobody gets anything just for showing up, or the flies eat the meat' (see the bastard blocks thread, and the single-packet authentication as elixir against ddos threads)
asciilifeform: which is why i predict that bitcoin is condemned to migrate behind the very tall fortress walls of something like gossipd
asciilifeform: where indeed nobody gets value for showing up and being a fly
mircea_popescu: research went into this in the deep, dank cellars of my dirigible. there's a lot of the original rock involved. it may even not be wrong design, horror of horrors.
mircea_popescu: anyway. this is a poorly understood point as of yet at all levels - the clergy and the populace.
asciilifeform: which?
asciilifeform: (which it)
mircea_popescu: the whole node conundrum
asciilifeform: it is a working design IF placed behind walls.
mircea_popescu: understand something re that principle of yours : money is fundamentally a community function.
mircea_popescu: there is no objective money.
asciilifeform: if exposed to flies - quite wrong.
mircea_popescu: aha.
asciilifeform: right now there are simply insufficient flies, and their proboscis - insufficiently sharp and long, to make this point properly felt.
mircea_popescu: this is also true.
mircea_popescu: but the point does stand, that gold on mars is not gold but just a metal.
asciilifeform: money is a community thing, aha. but recall that in ancient times peasants lived and died for generations without, in many cases, ever touching money
mircea_popescu: surely.
asciilifeform: just like today most folks die without touching electron microscope.

Problem of "who goes first" solved, and inasmuch as it's an irrelevant problem anyway, it doesn't matter how it's solved just as long as it's solved.

mircea_popescu: community doesn't mean "everyone". nor does it mean "people you'd expect". a guy's harem is not composed of all the women that exist, or all the women he ran into. nvertheless, it works just fine.
asciilifeform: there is this notion, probably rooted in very fundamental christian 'inner light' poison, that the excluding group has the burden of explaining to rando derp who asks 'but why not me!?'
mircea_popescu: no such thing.
mircea_popescu: woman that wants to know why she's not in the harem needs only ask herself.
asciilifeform: not in ~a~ harem
asciilifeform: but there is not necessarily a reason why she is not in ~the particular~ harem, and it is not the duty of that harem keeper to provide a logical 'reason'
mircea_popescu: well i said the not a. woman who wants to know why she isn't in any particular one ~need only ask herself~.
asciilifeform: then yes
mircea_popescu: "what did i do to be in ?" "how did it fail ?" "how did i fix it ?" "how did it fail still ?" "how did i fix that ?"
mircea_popescu: either she keeps going, in which case she's not in the harem yet, or else gives up, in which case there's the answer.
mircea_popescu: "oh but what of equality!" "the only thing equal to all its downstream is 0".

mircea_popescu: phf yes, the list of all signatures seen to reach that leaf.
asciilifeform: mod6: from where comes this antecedent ?
mod6: ok, anyway.. lemme take a look at this.
mod6: so what i want to do
mircea_popescu: !rated phf
assbot: You rated user phf on 24-Jun-2015, with a rating of 2, and supplied these additional notes: Fixed our boxen!.
punkman: mircea_popescu: phf yes, the list of all signatures seen to reach that leaf. << that would just return "asciilifeform" :P
mircea_popescu: punkman no because it has genesis in there.
mod6: start without this patch : asciilifeform_malleus_mikehearnificarum.vpatchasciilifeform-programmable-versionstring.vpatch, or th mod6_der_high_low_s.vpatch
mircea_popescu: ~all~ signatures seen to reach that leaf.
asciilifeform: aha, buncha people signed genesis
asciilifeform: ideally, everybody
asciilifeform: (in the orchestra, that is)
mod6: then recode all this stuff.
mod6: just imagine that they don't exist, now we need to reimplement those changes.
asciilifeform: waiwut
mod6: should I do mine first? then you can make your changes.
asciilifeform: mod6: i am utterly confused now ?
phf: oh oh people signatures, yes
mod6: i wanted a whole replacement for asciilifeform-programmable-versionstring.vpatch, not just the fix.
mircea_popescu: phf actually asciilifeform has a point : two signature lists are needed. complete and dependent. C = all signatures seen on any of the packages pressed ; D = the set of all signatures on which the current press depends - ie, without them you can't reach that leaf.
asciilifeform: replacement?! whyt?!!!
mircea_popescu: lemme formalize this.
mod6: i'll fix all of this stuff.
mod6: i'll be afk for a bit.
mircea_popescu: A signed by a b c d ; B off A, signed by a, c, d. D off A, signed by a, d. C off D signed by d.
asciilifeform: mod6: if you want to backport the patch and the afterpatch, etc. i will read and sign the result.
asciilifeform: but imho this is unnecessary sweat.
mircea_popescu: the first list for C is a b c d whereas the 2nd list for C is D.
asciilifeform: whole point of v is to avoid having to pretend that symphony was farted out in one perfect go.
asciilifeform: we can live with the history !
asciilifeform: manually re-grinding everything every fucking time somebody finds a bug, is scutwork, and the time could be used to do something useful.
mircea_popescu: meanwhile the first list for B is a b c d whereas the 2nd list for B is (a) ; (c) ; (d) ie 3 lists.
asciilifeform: this is my official take on the question, which obviously nobody has to listen to.
asciilifeform: but there it is.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i'd say it's a degree question. if a hole found close to the surface, supuration is advised. if not, let blood carry the germs out. just like the body treats infection.
mircea_popescu: sure, people may maintain sparkly-clean trees for whatever reason anyway. but in general as to the "main" tree, best avoid both horns of the dilemma and tryt and sit in the middle.
asciilifeform: anyway if somebody insists on tamping versionstring and versionstring-fix into one path, i will read and sign it.
asciilifeform: later.
asciilifeform: but right now i'ma go to meatspace and won't be back until nightfall.

mircea_popescu: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=31-01-2016#1391311 << word eh. ☝︎
assbot: Logged on 31-01-2016 18:34:13; mod6: and next time, let's do this sort of testing before i ship
phf: mircea_popescu: is that a list of names that correspond to .wot? i.e. each patch has (asciilifeform, mod6, etc.) and then there's a set of all wots for current press?
mircea_popescu: basically i seek to answer two questions, from a management point of view.
mircea_popescu: question 1 is : who are all the people who contributed to this ?
mircea_popescu: question 2 is : who are all the people on whose word i am implicitly depending by building this ?
mircea_popescu: so by building B in the example i am in the situation where i know a and c and d must ALL lie.
mircea_popescu: whereas by building D i am in the situation where i know it's enough for d to lie.
mircea_popescu: (this approach probably makes the ancient "group is the enemy of intelligent life" / "only threat to wot model is agreement" etc painfully obvious - if a, c and d are a compact i'll just note them epsilon and pretend it's one thing)
phf: ah that gives you ability to press purely from wot knowledge, without reading the patch
mircea_popescu: quite.
mircea_popescu: must know who to thank and who to hunt down. that's what management is.

mircea_popescu: but the problem per se wasn't the end he approached, but the other end.
mircea_popescu: and if we fix the other end, we actually fix this problem.
mircea_popescu: and even without the economic consideration, from a purely intellectual perspective. what is this inhuman, anti-intellectual "the bitcoin developers" bs ? we're not living in the village of pythagora over here, and we don't expect "anonymity" to stand in for sovereignity like five years old. gimme the motherfucking list.

asciilifeform: i came back to console because i realized that mircea_popescu was making a VITAL point that is in danger of being glossed over
asciilifeform: does anyone recall how my original vtron only showed linear flow ?
ben_vulpes nods
asciilifeform: and why i thought this to be sufficient ?
ben_vulpes does not nod
asciilifeform: it is because, in my original concept, the main knob that is to be twiddled by the operator is not the press head,
mircea_popescu: o wb alfie
asciilifeform: BUT THE WOT
asciilifeform: the wot!
asciilifeform: you vary the vot.
asciilifeform: wot
mircea_popescu: oh god, the wot!
ben_vulpes: wot wot
ben_vulpes: my wot, mon trezor!
mircea_popescu: who said "the iron! my god, the iron!"
asciilifeform: vtron, in primary mode of operation, is to climb the tree, as high as it can on each branch, operating using the current wotset
ben_vulpes: reheheally?
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform still, this is the "orig" for that.
asciilifeform: this automagically gives you 'mod6 & ben_vulpes release', or 'what mircea_popescu is willing to use', or ' asciilifeform's bleeding razor'
ben_vulpes: because i want to press "shiva" into a tree that doesn't have, say, malleus_mikehearnificarum
asciilifeform: you just use different wotsets.
asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: that's when you bring out the press depth knob. OR alternatively sign the ones you want! and then press using a wot that contains only ben_vulpes
mircea_popescu: anyway, notice the fractal beauty of the world : list 1 is really "the wot" ; list 2 is necessarily the lordship list. and by its very nature ... you can or can not chose various different lordships depending on what it is you're trying to do.
asciilifeform: see, there are multiple ways to go about it
mircea_popescu: EXACTLY like how it worked back whne it worked.
asciilifeform: aha. mircea_popescu has it.
mircea_popescu: it's this sort of "doesn't repeat but rhymes" beauty that makes me thing we're really singing spheres music here.
asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: clasp is one of those 'lisps without eval' isnnit.
asciilifeform: there are good examples of this kind of thing, from the past, see 'chicken' and 'stalin'
asciilifeform: but it is pretty much the opposite of what we want here.

ben_vulpes: has 'really great cpp interop'
mircea_popescu: lol this is a promising thread.
ben_vulpes can hear the retching from here

mircea_popescu: <adlai> if "standards" is plural, it's already noncompliant <<< for the record, the reason the enemy uses the plural there isn't that the enemy is this stupid, but that it believes in patchwork. ie, standards : one for this, one for that, together they make up a complete thing.
mircea_popescu: sort of freehand wot if you will
phf: clasp is very much anti-ba, there's no question about it, pulls a lot of projects together, of questionable pedigree
adlai: "anti-ba"!?
asciilifeform: including llvm
adlai: clasp is an answer to a specific problem which nobody here has... it's equally anti-pythagoras
asciilifeform: (the 'llvm is satanic and must die' thing is not as clear-cut as i would like, it is actually MORE readable and hackable than gcc. but i'm allergic, i confess.)
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes you know what "not making the cut" is wqith a woman ? even if you're a saudi prince and your daddy buys her for you ; even if you're an afghan monkey and she deeply believes she has to. there's a point where you make the cut or don't, and that's what it is.
mircea_popescu: physics is a well known whore. behaves the exact same way.
mircea_popescu: do her insides answer to you or don't they.
asciilifeform: ^^
adlai: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=31-01-2016#1391465 << afaik, clasp will be superior to other lisps only if the bulk of your friction is at the interface itself. specifically, it does NOT have the same level of slime support you'd find in the mature lisp (sbcl and ccl) ☝︎

asciilifeform: adlai: and here i picked a lisp with 0 slime support
adlai: "lisp"
phf: adlai: clasp is a good fit for tendriling trb, if i had more time, i'd use it in a similar way to shiva. but then i'm already building trb on llvm/clang, etc. it is anti-ba though because of pedigree and ownership problem. can use it, if you have resources to read through 5 or so 100k loc projects
ben_vulpes: FIGHT
asciilifeform: 'scheme is the good half of cl'
mircea_popescu: phf 12 100k loc projects, turns out.
mircea_popescu: and i fear nobody does nor could anyone have such resources.
adlai: modern CL (as opposed to the ANSI doorstop) is a tool that evolved from a standard. r5rs is a standard. tinyscheme is a tool. etc etc... vita brevis, but there are at least a couple usable artes
asciilifeform: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=31-01-2016#1391553 << hilariously, this is part of what i do for a living now. ☝︎
assbot: Logged on 31-01-2016 19:29:40; mircea_popescu: and i fear nobody does nor could anyone have such resources.
asciilifeform: mega-bezzlatron ~does~ have resources.
mircea_popescu: to no significant eventual effect.
asciilifeform: can't disagree!
mircea_popescu: so then ... it doesn't.
asciilifeform: (pretty sure it all stokes the furnace at the end of the day)
asciilifeform: hey, having resources and having the brains to not stoke the furnace with'em are different things
mircea_popescu: as the linecount you're digesting increases you don't need more people. you need smarter ones. it's not like if you need one brick carried you hire one lout and ifg you need 10000 you hire 10000. it's like if you want 1kg carried you can use a dog, and if you need 10 tons you gotta learn to speak whale now.
asciilifeform: well yes
asciilifeform: there are no louts there, reading code.
asciilifeform: just me.
mircea_popescu: well so then. i don't want 10x as many people that can jump 1m. i want people who can jump 10m now.
mircea_popescu: wut ?
asciilifeform: 10 tons.
adlai: phf: also, afaict, clasp is designed for manipulating existing C++ libraries with your own tendrils, rather than tendriling an existing turdatron. tinyscheme is designed for the latter.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i'm the 'whale' that moves the 10 tonnes, there.
asciilifeform: (i don't work at '10,000 dogs' shops, as a matter of principle)
mircea_popescu: you know, if human ability were actually infinite, management wouldn't exist.
asciilifeform: it isn't infinite, but varies more than dog/whale.
mircea_popescu: definitely.
asciilifeform: more like whale/euglena.
mircea_popescu: point remains, resource needs don't scale well in this type of problem.
asciilifeform: it scales pretty well, if tmsr were an actual empire it could have a 100% mod6 and a 100% asciilifeform et al
asciilifeform: instead of ~5-10%
asciilifeform: granted this is not 10,000 dogs.
asciilifeform: but nobody ~needs~ 10,000 dogs.
phf: adlai: i don't see the difference. both require you to annotate your classes/method/data somehow. clasp requires less annotation with larger impact then tinyscheme, e.g. it knows about c++ and can do some advanced ffi-ing
asciilifeform: phf: cpp does enough munging at compile time that this whole concept is disastrously meaningless
mircea_popescu: ffi, fast fourier interfacing ?
asciilifeform: foreign function interface
mircea_popescu: o hey.
asciilifeform: phf: you can't repl straight into cpp, and trying is guaranteed to bring you to grief
phf: asciilifeform: that's what clasp does
asciilifeform: embeds a cpp ~interpreter~ ?
asciilifeform: even if this were so, this breaks the language semantics.
asciilifeform: think about it.
adlai: while you may want missile guidance on board the missile, you might not want the chip fab on board as well
asciilifeform: a cpp is that is interpreted, and where magic that normally happens during compilation can happen MORE THAN ONCE, and AT RUNTIME, is guaranteed semantic-distinct from ordinary cpp.
asciilifeform: cpp is not merely braindamaged, it is a roadkill that has sat in the sun for all of july
asciilifeform: stop trying to attach life support to it.
asciilifeform: (and this is pointedly not the intent of shiva.)
adlai: my understanding is that nobody here wants to make bitcoind, the minimal concrete-sealed weaponized Bitcoin-that-Exists, able to compile a new version of itself
mircea_popescu: god help us.
asciilifeform: adlai: me.
mircea_popescu: what ?
asciilifeform: obviously not with the cpp garbage.
asciilifeform: but the mythical os.
mircea_popescu: you mean bitcoin-os
mircea_popescu: oh
asciilifeform: aha.
mircea_popescu: well it'd pretty damned well be able to, else how is it an os
adlai: asciilifeform: isn't shiva supposed to be an optimal point BETWEEN sentient-AGI-bitcoinOS and jsonrpc on port 8332?
asciilifeform: i can't speak for others, but 'i come to bury ' the garbage, not to praise it.'
phf: asciilifeform: while the goals are different, the mechanism is the same. you annotate classes, methods and get stable refs in your lisp instance, which shares heap with the running c++ process.
adlai: rather than some continually-shifting goalpost that asymptotically approaches whatever sentience seems least broken
mircea_popescu: phf but these adnotations are necessarily not translateable.
asciilifeform: phf: annotate laboriously, by hand, and painfully aware of the impedance mismatches
asciilifeform: rather than automatic claptrap.

mircea_popescu: adlai no, shiva isn't supposed to be "an optimal point". it is supposed to be a CORRECT replacement of a currently broken implementation.
mircea_popescu: and yes, both json and rpc are broken by design
asciilifeform: phf: know the stories where, in the Dark Future of Hello Kitty, man's neurons are replaced one by one with robotic ones, and he doesn't notice ?
asciilifeform: it is my intention to do this to trb.
adlai: lemme put it another way... somewhere in the ANSI spec are probably one, two, or even three ~hundred~ symbols which the weaponized bitcoind-os does not need in its guts. define-setf-expander? define-method-combination? where do you draw the line?
asciilifeform: adlai: ergo why i did not pick cl
mircea_popescu: too soon.
adlai: exactly.
adlai: ergo why the clasp horse is also unnecessary to continue flogging.
asciilifeform: also i laugh when folks take the spew of academitard 'compiler research' claptrap and try to actually use
mircea_popescu: well the other one bated him.
asciilifeform: sorta like going to a toy store to buy power tools
asciilifeform: 'hey this drill whirrs, more loudly even'
asciilifeform: let's use.
mircea_popescu: this log is moving so fast i'm actually getting contiguity issues trying to follow.
adlai: again, not trying to perscribe what's right; obviously asciilifeform understands what he's trying to do infinitely better than i can; but... i think the line is somewhere between embedding an interpreter for a subset of r5rs, and embedding a ~compiler~
asciilifeform: fortunately for mircea_popescu , now i go and pet pet and wander around.
asciilifeform bbl
phf: clasp is not "compiler research", is designed to scratch itch of a single person, for doing computational chemistry
adlai: happy wanderings asciilifeform
mircea_popescu: adlai there's no option to embedding a compiler in an os.
adlai: mircea_popescu: in these early days, when Bitcoin does not yet fully Exist, it seems as though everything is an option. the full shiva vision, as i understand it from recent logs, opens the door to doing exactly that, if some energetic idiot decides it's a good idea
mircea_popescu: looky : currently we have a script that pulls dependencies, checks them, and builds.
mircea_popescu: the reason alf wants a cd is because what he really wants is A BOOT CD.
adlai: i don't think it's a good idea and i'm trying to dispel the notion for others who may. i'm a little surprised at http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=31-01-2016#1391599 and probably misunderstood alf. ☝︎
assbot: Logged on 31-01-2016 19:40:36; asciilifeform: adlai: me.
mircea_popescu: nor is this eventual situation avoidable at all.
adlai was "it's"ing about "doing exactly that", not about "BOOT CD"
adlai doesn't want a CD because 4/5ths of his hardware doesn't know what CDs are... but this is back to bedrock issues
mircea_popescu: i think maybe you've formed a partial idea of what's being discussed through the age old process of having read a partial set of what's been said.
mircea_popescu: but in any case, compiling bitcoin in bitcoin is not either a goal or liable to be implemented before actually having a bitcoin-fs say.
adlai keeps reading, both logs and seals, and maybe someday will have another partial idea
mircea_popescu: nevertheless, the fact that bitcoin-os is the unavoidable end of this entire process requires things be thought out with a view to that fact.
adlai: well patches, not seals. the latter aren't particularly stimulating reading material per se

assbot: 17 results for 'bug for you' : http://s.b-a.link/?q=bug+for+you
mod6: oh yeah.
mod6: yeah, no clue what you did there.
mod6: i was able to press all of that out just fine.
ben_vulpes: the rebaked ones?
mod6: just had to stick his stuff into patches and .seals. but in all honesty, im not even sure if the patches & seals I'm using are what is indended at this point.
mod6: lets not worry about that for now. that thing is in its infancy.
ben_vulpes: so if i press those individually, in order, they work. but if i press the last patch, i believe that it fails to find its antecedents.
mod6: i kinda have to turn a deaf ear to a lot of this stuff until the new month starts, and even then, i gotta keep my eye on the prize - dispite any other problems on the periphery.
mod6: so ben_vulpes, understand that there is like a jumble of different things he submitted, and if the wrong ones are incorporated, it might puke.
mod6: like i said, lets just hold off on that.
mod6: it's not hurting anyone, and its not going in the release.
ben_vulpes: okeee
mod6: i can't even take the time to jump down that rabbit hole right now.

mod6: ok so whats going on there is that to preserve 80 cols, i create a command spanning two lines
mod6: "command part A" . "command part B" and set that equal to $import
ben_vulpes: so the '.' is both a line-break escape and string concatenation?
mod6: then in the next line i do this:
mod6: my $res = `$import`;
mod6: and execute $import and set the result (output) of the command to $res
mod6: <+ben_vulpes> so the '.' is both a line-break escape and string concatenation? << its not a line break. its just a string concatenation.
ben_vulpes: well there is a line break between those two strings
mod6: notice how there is a space after '=long '
ben_vulpes: sure
mod6: yup yup, i put a 0x0a in there just to preseve 80 cols. but perl deoesn't care nor does it add a '\n' to the command string
ben_vulpes: that's what i thought
mod6: ok.
ben_vulpes: thanks for confirming mod6
mod6: np
mod6: some of you out there who are following along will be like, "yeah, what about line 426, or 484 then!! eh!?"

ben_vulpes: if you have access to the gradebook...
mircea_popescu: if you mine yourself, on your own coin, it is possible to do anything.
ben_vulpes: so a decomposition then
ben_vulpes: i create a transaction with a low s value. someone listening to broadcast transactions can rewrite my tx to have a high s value.
ben_vulpes: correct?
ben_vulpes: (create and broadcast)
mircea_popescu: numerically, there is no way to distinguish between a transaction that was signed high and a transaction that was signed low and malleated to high
mircea_popescu: juist like numerically there is no way to distinguish between a transaction that was signed low and one that was signed high and malleated to low.
ben_vulpes: great, i follow.
mircea_popescu: mostly because the conversion consists of substracting from a constant

mircea_popescu: right.
ben_vulpes: but digging as far down into the roots of my conclusions as makes sense to dispel ambiguity
ben_vulpes: uh next
ben_vulpes: how did you come to the conclusion that it was miners doing the malleation, and not nobodies malleating and rebroadcasting?
mircea_popescu: cui prodest.
ben_vulpes: > deeply unclear
mircea_popescu: cui prodest scelus is fecit, he who benefits from misdeed did it.
ben_vulpes: could just as easily be a USG FUD campaign.
ben_vulpes: how do the miners benefit though.
mircea_popescu: tx fee
ben_vulpes: it is greater on malleated transactions?! but but
ben_vulpes: this'd invalidate the signature.
ben_vulpes: i'm sure that i misunderstand.
mircea_popescu: if you include the tx, you get the fee. if you don't include it, for any reason, you don't get the fee.
mircea_popescu: since they agreed to only include low-s for whatever random reason / concern trolling / misinformed desire to be nice and good, they're stuck now.
mircea_popescu: note the very usg-tard approach to things : it IS true that ambiguous signatures are bad ; it is DEEPLY UNTRUE that we can counter this by AGREEING among ourselves "not to do it".
mircea_popescu: statutory solutions to bad design, a "western world" specialty.
ben_vulpes: but there's no actual reason why they couldn't mine high-s transactions, adherence to party line aside.
mircea_popescu: there is no real reason to do anything they do anyway

mod6: i don't follow.
mircea_popescu: the first is a mere spelling error. the second, shoul;dn't there be a [R]eference to the email ?
mod6: mod6's vpatch, `mod6_der_high_low_s.vpatch' [R.09]

mod6: mircea_popescu: that part is just in reference to V's release in R.05, not the high/low S patch which is R.09
mircea_popescu: so then "the email to the mailing list" symbol shouldn't have a reference ?
mircea_popescu: i dunno, doesn't have to, just asking.
mod6: oh, it does, sometimes if it's been referenced before in the document, i don't re-reference it.
mod6: NOTE: With the publication of the latest version of V [v99996] [R.05] these

mircea_popescu: RIGHT!
ben_vulpes: have fun
mircea_popescu: so wtf.
ben_vulpes: don't know or care
phf: mircea_popescu: it's broken across multiple dom elements
mircea_popescu: i guess i fucked it up when putting it on trilema ? asciilifeform ^ mind saying what the above link does ?
ben_vulpes: aha
phf: on safari first selection (if we were all...) simply breaks, second one works
ben_vulpes: asciilifeform: has blessed us with a new root node with which to fuzz all v implementations
mircea_popescu: phf the truth is that it'd be great if there was a way for reader to select what text he's referencing. but if it can't be made to work then we can't really use it.
ben_vulpes: but it's so close! with only an unknowable amount of further hacking it could totally work!
punkman: why not highlight server-side
phf: ben_vulpes: so shiva 2 of 2 links to rest of tree, shiva 1 of 1 is a genesis with no descendants, and that whole tinyscheme_genesis_fixed tree presses into tinyscheme/ root that's not even inside bitcoin. i'm not sure what ascii is up to
mircea_popescu: punkman server doens't know what reader cares about.
punkman: just need a ? instead of #
ben_vulpes: phf: i see
mircea_popescu: punkman how do you figure this'd work ?
mircea_popescu: the dom is a wholly client side thing, server just spits out a string as far as it's concerned
punkman: it'd work better for viewing, because I've seen broken selections a lot too
mircea_popescu: viewport allignment also client side thing
ben_vulpes: a thing to do might be to leave the genesis press as-is, move the resulting tinyscheme dir into the correct shiva location and then press the rest of the patches reground to reference the shivadir
ben_vulpes: this means that v-pressings have to be idempotent.
ben_vulpes: eg that `v press shiva stans_sweet_patch.vpatch && v press shiva stans_sweet_patch.vpatch' must result in the same tree as running the command once.
ben_vulpes: so that operators can press, migrate dir, and press more.
ben_vulpes: ;;later tell asciilifeform ^^ plz to opine
gribble: The operation succeeded.

felipelalli: mircea_popescu, I know that you think expire a key is a bad idea. I saw you saying that in MPEx FAQ. But why? Could you elaborate more about that? Isn't that useful in case someone dies or lost the control over the key?
felipelalli: trinque, no I was talking about deedbot-. The bot didn't accept my renewed key.

assbot: asciilifeform_shiva_part_2_of_2 ... ( http://bit.ly/1Prvdqq )
phf: but that merges nodes from unrelated graphs without any sort of sense or reason

ben_vulpes: this is a nifty patchbrowser, phf
ben_vulpes: phf: what do you mean "first seen nodes"?
phf: ben_vulpes: kahn loops over a list of nodes that starts with genesis. on each iteration node in the list is inspected, its children added to the list for further inspection. you can give priority to what was in the list first or give priority to what's in the list last, which will produce either depth first or breadth first walk
ben_vulpes: aha.
ben_vulpes: i suspect v's toposort will need to account for multiple geneses
phf: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=29-01-2016#1388877 ☝︎
assbot: Logged on 29-01-2016 18:19:27; phf: right now it seems like an artifact of topo sort
ben_vulpes: either that or find roots first, toposort from each root, and then apply each set of toposorted patches in some arbitrary order
phf: well, original v uses python dictionary for "list to inspect", i.e. order is non-deterministic
ben_vulpes: mhm, i recall
ben_vulpes: i think it's asciibeterministic
mircea_popescu: phf> doing by the book kahn topo sort on my graph results in topo a b c d e so pressing to c drops the whole d e subgraph << this is correct.
mircea_popescu: <felipelalli> mircea_popescu, I know that you think expire a key is a bad idea. I saw you saying that in MPEx FAQ. But why? Could you elaborate more about that? Isn't that useful in case someone dies or lost the control over the key? << how is a bitfield in the gpg key help you in case you die ? or lose control of the key ? neither of these are time-able events.
ben_vulpes: mircea_popescu: this introduces a conflict between "pressing a head presses all signed patches at same leaf-level that have been signed by wot"
ben_vulpes: conflict *with
mircea_popescu: between what and what ?
mircea_popescu: uh. how are unconnected nodes at "the same level" ? they're at an undefined level
mircea_popescu: and undefined is by definition not equal to anything
ben_vulpes: this was a thing i bounced off weeks ago!
mircea_popescu: if d e do not have a common antecessor with c, pressig to c dropps them.
ben_vulpes: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com//?date=14-11-2015#1323384 ☝︎
assbot: Logged on 14-11-2015 02:10:00; ben_vulpes: asciilifeform: the press algo must then press all same-tree-level leaves for the given leaf, correct?
mircea_popescu: SAME LEVEL!
mircea_popescu: nodes at undefined level are not same with anything.
ben_vulpes: howzabout another scenario
mircea_popescu: c is level 2. d is level ?.
mircea_popescu: ? != 2.
ben_vulpes: d is level 0, actually
ben_vulpes: as is a
mircea_popescu: no, it is not.
mircea_popescu: a is level 0, for c. d is level ? for c.
mircea_popescu: you're thinking global scope like some sort of perlhead.
ben_vulpes: flow already makes this mistake iirc
ben_vulpes: but there's no guarantee that it renders a b c d e instead of d e a b c
ben_vulpes: BECAUSE FLATTENING TREES
mircea_popescu: huh ?
mircea_popescu: anyway. there is no concept of level defined outside of a press.
ben_vulpes refuses to give up
mircea_popescu: if you're pressing c, then all the leaves c depends on have levels, and only they have a level.
ben_vulpes: yes!
mircea_popescu: so a has 0 and c has 2 and d has nothing.
ben_vulpes: what is to be done with c' and c'', then (patches that also depend on b but have nothing to do with c)
mircea_popescu: if you're pressing e, d is 0, and e is 1, and a, b and c are all ?
ben_vulpes: yes i follow, slow as i am
mircea_popescu: aite.
ben_vulpes: but the primes, do i press them? or simply recurse up the antecedent chain cleanly?
mircea_popescu: what primes ?
ben_vulpes: a b {c, c', c''}
ben_vulpes: where c, c' and c'' all depend on b. if i press c, do c' and c'' make it as well?
mircea_popescu: that's entirely up to you neh ? i'd prefer it if i told you to press c for you to limit yourself to pressing c.
mircea_popescu: someone who is doing debugging might wish to see the whole tree all the way down
mircea_popescu: this is up to the user.
ben_vulpes: sure, and i don't take much umbrage at this.
mircea_popescu: generally from what i've understood, the default behaviour was production (1st above), whereas people these days decided they'd like to see development (2nd above). i also don't take umbrage with this.
mircea_popescu: but unconnected graphs are a horse of another feather.
mircea_popescu: you wanna see shiva, press e.
ben_vulpes: sorry for all the dumb questions, just working to tease out into explicitude what everyone else takes for granted.
phf: mircea_popescu: what to do about a b->c->d e->f press to c. a b c? or b c?
mircea_popescu: a b c
mircea_popescu: o sorry
mircea_popescu: b c
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes no it's not bad, make sure we're ACTUALLY on the same page as opposed to just jointly excited.
