mircea_popescu: hahaha what.
mircea_popescu: you can't sue someone FOR THAT roflmao. what's these shits imagine, that they're in power or something ?
mircea_popescu would much prefer a davout -run liquidation. at least it'd establish the item's true value. which, i suspect, is somewhere south of 80 btc.
shinohai: I'm flabbergasted too. Last time I checked you could still bankroll whoever you wanted to.
mircea_popescu: the derps seriously imagine they're in power.
mircea_popescu: "tortious interference" and "racketeering", get a load of that.
shinohai: I guess it is an attempt to plug sinking ship with ice cubes.
mircea_popescu: more like a "we own this land and fuck you" sorta argument, "it's illegal for you to help the people we don't like".
mircea_popescu: except that works when i do it, and who the fuck is gawker.
asciilifeform: 'The Wall Street Journal reports Gawker has received a $22million bankruptcy loan to keep the business afloat prior to their sale at auction.'
asciilifeform: ^ ~somebody~ is keeping the shitliner afloat
asciilifeform: for some purpose.
shinohai: American public must have shit journalism to read. Not like they care for much else besides sensationalism.
asciilifeform: in other lulz, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f38gaRoo1cE
asciilifeform: 'The HaoBTC Kangding mine is one the three Bitcoin datacenters that HaoBTC currently operates - as of the time of writing, it generates 33PH hash rate. The miners deployed are Avalon 6 and Bitmain S7s. Here is an unedited walk-through filmed on June 11, 2016.'
mircea_popescu: anyway, the "looking into" thing is pure ridiculous. the usual fare of gawker, "throw shit at the wall because anyone reading is too stupid to distinguish their mouth and asshole anyway"
mircea_popescu: basically, writing fiction for their demo.
shinohai: I thought I was looking at a video of Alabama there for a minute until I saw Chinese writing.

BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> incididentally BingoBoingo : does qntra not publish trackbacks or just didn't get ? << Does not recieve trackbacks in a meaningful way. Entire xml-rpc was excised because fuck Mullenweg
mircea_popescu: ah.
BingoBoingo: So no trackbacks, no rpc brute force, etc
mircea_popescu: im sure it still gets the requests
BingoBoingo: Prolly, in same way jaded city dweller "listens" to the ambient noise.

mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo trilema works ok with trackbacks, but i guess it's one of the few.
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: But at what cognitive cost? Certainly a greater one than simply removing the entirety of the xml-rpc and turds therein.
mircea_popescu: notrly ?
mircea_popescu: not like i'm doing anything ; there's the antispam thing that's documented in an article ; also the xml-rpc hardening idem documented. that's about it. haven't touched any of it in years.
BingoBoingo: Literally this involves simply deleting a file called "xml-rpc.php" One keystroke for great justice.
mircea_popescu: well then i guess more cost.
mircea_popescu: upfront though. not really more maintenance afaik.
BingoBoingo: Yeah, either way is cheaper than Demoocracy for sure https://stlouis.craigslist.org/evg/5630776322.html

Framedragger: vc: thanks for the cockbox! how are things?
Framedragger: by which i mean, any crazy customer support / admin stories thus far? :)
mod6: thanks BingoBoingo
mod6: Cool jurov, when they are distrbuted (month end?), just hit me up.
thestringpuller: usually its the week after the statement on trilema confirming share count
thestringpuller: so first/second week of july
jurov: mod6 Qntra shares? When did you receive any?
mod6: i haven't, yet. but i wrote an article. so i presume they will give me a few.
mod6: but i'd like to send the proceeds to The Bitcoin Foundation
mod6: so just take your coinbr fee and forward the rest to the btcf addy if that's ok?
jurov: sorry, i can't. they are meant to be used strictly for hookers and blow.
mod6: or, if you'd rather i signed a statement saying such, i can do that when they get distributed.
shinohai: ^
mod6: lol
mod6: i suppose that can be arranged.
mod6: anyway, thanks, we'll talk 'round month end then to get it figured out.
shinohai: Bad news is all the good blow vendors are on tor
vc: Framedragger: things have been great, users have been fine save for the billions of them that messed up their SSH key
jurov: yes, your shares are tied to your gpg fingerprint, so pls make a signed request to onetime/automatic delivery toi certain coinbr account
vc: I'm going to have to put like a tutorial on the checkout page
vc: I'm currently planning on getting 144GB memory and 6 more SSDs
vc: which will put my maximum slot count at 140
vc: and if the 140 slots fill up I will purchase the other 144GB memory which is the last possible upgrade for the server
mod6: jurov: what if one doens't have a coinbr account?
jurov: you can have them sent to mpex account, too
jurov: :D
mod6: ok. we'll work something out. no problemo.
jurov: or just say you want to donate them to foundation and we'll work it out
mod6: cool. thanks man.
Framedragger: vc: nice, man
Framedragger: hehe yeah, ssh keys, welcome to idiotland i guess
Framedragger: vc: just fyi, there appears to be a ~10k packets / second limit somewhere upstream, are you aware of anything of the kind? i'm just running some self-tests (using a program which has its own TCP stack, i.e. no use of kernel networking / sockets). same tests produce at least 10 times as much elsewhere. cpu not the bottleneck. just wondering what it could be
Framedragger: note, stricly-localhost test gives me much more than that. but test with bogus mac address (so it doesn't hit the actual internet) gives only 10k pps, which is real low. some hardware firewall doing excessive ratelimiting?
vc: Framedragger: I have definitely seen waaaaaaay over 10k packets / s on these interfaces so that's not the problem
vc: there is an outbound cap of 100Mbit/s on the interfaces
Framedragger: hmm. yeah self-test which doesn't leave localhost gives me ~ 3M pps or so
vc: what size of packets?
Framedragger: uh need to check. but it's just a TCP SYN!
Framedragger: 41 bytes i think
Framedragger: i mean it's clearly not bw cap
vc: are you doing tests right now?
Framedragger: vnstat gives me maybe 5 mbps total
Framedragger: vc: yeah just relaunched. vm031
asciilifeform: reddit, apparently, censoring all string matches of mr. jihad's name.
Framedragger: with botched mac addr so shouldnt even reach internet, i think theyre getting dropped at some local router
vc: yes, that would be aftables
vc: I filter mac addresses...
Framedragger: ahhh. not a bad thing hm
vc: arptables*
vc: and some other one
Framedragger: vc: thanks for clarifying!
vc: idk
vc: yep
Framedragger: right i'll stop diddling with mac addresses and do some actual packet-sending work heh
shinohai: asciilifeform: muh censorship!
Framedragger: vc: yep, all good otherwise !

Framedragger: (gun resume and finish ipv4 open ssh port scans tonight with vc's node (vc: it's randomized ip range scan and only 30 kpackets/s, before you ask), and then deploy ~10 vps nodes for ssh key extraction, feeding port-22-open-list from the former into the latter.)
thestringpuller: "Without any regulation you can't stop a bad actor before they start. They only need to scam people once to make a lot of money.

vc: Framedragger: I'm cool with port scans, neither me nor my parent host cares
Framedragger: vc: cool, and i remember you saying this the first time otherwise wouldn't have done it, just wanted to let you know that these particular scans won't (*completely*) trash the reputation of the currently assigned ipv4 :)
Framedragger: thestringpuller: "do people deserve bitcoin?" is this still a non-rhetorical question? :)
thestringpuller: Framedragger: The mass adoption crowd is much like the Bernie Sanders crowd.

Framedragger: i would maintain that the socialist set and the doesnt-deserve-bitcoin set are not necessarily mutually exclusive; at least this cannot be known a priori. mp et al. would argue that it can; so be it
Framedragger: oh shit i meant
Framedragger: the mapping between the sets is not necessarily bijective, i.e. one-to-one
Framedragger: but to show this / give examples of some differences.. eh fuck that, too much effort

thestringpuller: Framedragger: I was being hyperbolic. My point was more that the mass adoption crowd is too stupid to regulate themselves, and as such would like to punish all of Bitcoin.
thestringpuller: All mass adoption will cause is more people getting scammed.

Framedragger: in other news, am casually looking into perfect forward secrecy in *asynchronous* communications. this *may* turn out to be relevant for gossipd enthusiasts and connoisseurs in the long run, too. the most simple way appears to be for nodes to generate a bunch of "pre-keys" (halves of ephemeral key exchange), and store/cache them somewhere (obvs signed by their permanent identity key), a la https://whispersystems.org/blog/asynchronous-sec
Framedragger: this way one can (in principle) achieve pfs for communications between otherwise offline nodes
Framedragger: "this one weird trick" kind of thing, not too smart, but possibly just smart enough.
