mod6: asciilifeform: hey (i think I've asked this before) but; the blkcut utility doesn't allow a guy to exacto-knife one block out of a blkindex file does it?
asciilifeform: to the -moon !
asciilifeform: mod6: no, because it is an O(N) operation
asciilifeform: thinkaboutit
asciilifeform: but you can trivially add a feature that skips n blocks
mod6: well, im kinda trying to .. lol in a short cut way (without having to try to actually use it)
mod6: im got my hands full. am asking for thestringpuller who seems to be struggling
asciilifeform: there's nothing else to do but looks at every block up to N and wind forward s bytes
mircea_popescu: and in further lulz installments, http://trilema.com/2016/to-the-dao-and-the-ethereum-community-fuck-you/#comment-117593
asciilifeform: mod6: easiest thing is just to set extract = 1 only when n = B, where B is the block you want.
mod6: ok. cool. yeah, was thinking it'd be cool if we could get his blockchain height, say 408,001 and then chop off the last say, 1000 blocks so he'd be starting at 407,001
mod6: maybe that'd fix his problem.
mod6: thestringpuller: anyway, i get that you're "pissed" as you said the other day. if this is production server, you need to have some sort of backups indeed imo. if this is development, well, it's all part of the fun.
shinohai: \o/ yay for fun
thestringpuller: mod6: np. i just nuked and paved
thestringpuller: so i'll jus tstart synching from ascii's node then i'll swap out for SSD once it picks up
thestringpuller: then we go from there
thestringpuller: i don't think anything was wrong with that build just power outage corruption.
thestringpuller: no biggie
mircea_popescu: aaaand 9.96
mod6: i think others have had problems with the same exact thing. power goes out -> bad things may happen.
mod6: i may try to find some time yet this weekend to take a look at this blkcut thing -- this may be away to roll life saving numbers on your block chain after a power outage in the future.
shinohai: I can usually sync from backup, chop last blkxxx.dat and catch right back up pretty quick
thestringpuller: damn. i should have tried that
thestringpuller: never again. we pay for our lessons.
mod6: s/in the future/after adding a feature/
mod6: shinohai has it.
mod6: you could just ditch the entire latest one (numerically)
mod6: but it'd be a much better tool to just produce a new file with all blocks in the original previous to block n.
mod6: so if your block index goes from 385,000 to 408,000, you could tell it "407,000" and then the output would contain everything from 385,000 to 407,000
mod6: something like that. does this make sense?
thestringpuller: yea
mod6: asciilifeform?
thestringpuller: good advice for the future.
thestringpuller: thx shinohai mod6
mod6: sorry i've been afk much of the week. have been pulling super long days shit-shoveling.

Bugpowder: not gribble tho, but deedbot? New bot. Can u point me to faq if one exists.
mircea_popescu: hmm, lesee here
mircea_popescu: $help

Bugpowder: tx
Bugpowder: Now to pull the keys off the old machine… Hey it turned on, a good sign!
Bugpowder: list keys gives a graveyard of fails… e.g. Kludge

deedbot: cryptoflood voiced for 30 minutes.
mircea_popescu: Bugpowder heh. kludge ie http://trilema.com/2012/bitcoin-lolcows-the-musical-today-kludge/
Bugpowder: That guy… oh man
Bugpowder: Keys recovered. Now should only take me 2-8 more hours to figure out how to setup gpg and ident…
mircea_popescu: lol
jurov: O.o 2-8 hours
mircea_popescu: Bugpowder btw, there's no ident. we got rid of state. all you do is decrypt a message.
mircea_popescu: and once you do it, be a darling and put a page on the wiki, for the next guy.
Bugpowder: ok… uhhh… I’ll ask more questions once i got gpg running and I get stuk. tx
mircea_popescu: in other news, trilema servers can apparently take 100k surges without even hiccuping. nb.

mircea_popescu: Framedragger word!
mircea_popescu: i wonder how many internet urchins are being "the attacker" rightnao
mircea_popescu: oh i mean, rightdao
Framedragger: mircea_popescu: btw just fyi that sig on that pastebin post is probably all wrong, https://www.reddit.com/r/ethereum/comments/4oo1io/an_open_letter_from_the_hacker/d4e7efq - just sayin

Framedragger: ooh imma read upthread, didn't see that bit
Framedragger: oh wow everything's even more lulsy. awesome.
asciilifeform: also wtf, buterin hired some imbecile to write the dao thing?!
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform lulz of all time : the thing you linked links to qntra via a NOT CLICKABLE reference to https://www.reddit.com/r/Bitcoin/comments/2s2utx/the_hard_fork_missile_crisis/cnlqcd
asciilifeform: l0l!!
mircea_popescu: must suck to want to matter THIS BADLY and yet not be able to
Framedragger: asciilifeform: and apparently this particular "such recursion" flaw had already been spotted in a 2015 securiti audit? https://github.com/LeastAuthority/ethereum-analyses/blob/master/GasEcon.md#callstack-depth-limit-errors
Framedragger: "Someone could trick an autonomous agent into calling get_free_money() at the end of a very long call stack, such that thesend fails, and the agent would lose its money to this contract." etc
asciilifeform: i confess to never having given enough of a fuck re the eth circus to keep track in real time. but fortunately ~somebody~ did...
mircea_popescu: fortunately.
Framedragger: same, honestly, this has been uncovered only now, but, like, wtf, it's right there in a security audit, wtf
Framedragger: you know, not even that obscure
mircea_popescu: really, the claim is that buterin and the MIT are mongoloids.
asciilifeform: i guess everybody else went 'not worth a bullet'
mircea_popescu: not that o noes, this was such a great skillfully involved etc "hack"
Framedragger: i just find it amusing in general, yeah pointing out not as a contra, but, just, for the lulz
shinohai: Is this daoattacker fr ... BA ?
Framedragger: shinohai: runaway side effect of turing complete contracts. some a.i. leakage unavoidable.
shinohai: >.>
Framedragger: wow im not gonna read all of it but https://github.com/LeastAuthority/ethereum-analyses/blob/master/GasEcon.md is amusing, ethereum is sorta shite on the purely technical level, too
Framedragger behind on the news

asciilifeform: duplicate
shinohai: Interesting that so many "news sources" shat out same interview all at once.
mircea_popescu: Framedragger so it is.
mircea_popescu: shinohai this is ~the result of google existing, basically.
shinohai: ctrl+v
Framedragger: > soon we will have a smart contract to reward miners who oppose the soft fork and mines the transaction. 1 million ether + 100 btc will be shared with miners.

mod6: gutters are clean.
mod6: wewt
mod6: this neat: https://github.com/znort987/blockparser
mod6: anyone else ever used this?
mod6: or looked at it?
shinohai: I used it one time a long time ago, it has to go through the WHOLE chain first
mod6: yeah, looks like it. thought maybe i'd learn a thing or two by reading this code.
mod6: "As of this writing, it needs a log of RAM to work, typically upwards of 25Gigs." :D
mod6: but like i said, something to be learned from this maybe
shinohai: shouldn't this be possible to an extent with dumpblock ?
mod6: im on the same thought track - yeah.
shinohai: I'll start poking it with stick.
mod6: no need really.
mod6: just thinking about this stuff... food for thought
mircea_popescu: sooo... apple "withholds" "tech aid" from trump campaign. best fucking thing that ever happened to those people, not being bogged down by macs & shit.

mircea_popescu: lol
mircea_popescu: that schmuck's still around even ?
thestringpuller: yup
thestringpuller: he even had a dao proposal
mircea_popescu: derp is something else. his "speaking skills" ? "expertise" ?
mircea_popescu: does it take some sort of skill and expertise to be loudly wrong about everything you say and collect a whole trophycase of "that one time i was so ridiculous people laughed at me for a week" ?
mircea_popescu: amusingly, even twitter's tearing him a new one. lol. mmmmkay. EXPERTISE!
asciilifeform: betcha he collects payola.
mircea_popescu: well of course, he exists because the asshole behind ers&co's "we'll get UBER RICH by backstabbing rms", the one with the shoddy "guide" textbook publishing scam, promoted him way back when.
mircea_popescu: kinda the strategy of that mini usg, "find pliable idiots in all fields, promote them, get payola when/if nsa needs some planting done"
asciilifeform: it is of course possible that he works, but i can't picture this.
mircea_popescu: there was a pretty decent monograph on how the early days of "open source" vs "free software" played out, with the wanna-be derp front and center, i think linked in the logs.
mircea_popescu: dja happen to recall it ?
asciilifeform: esr?
mircea_popescu: nah nah. the books guy
asciilifeform: oreilly?

asciilifeform: i always thought that oreilley - the dead tree thing - were purely opportunistic
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform absolutely, yeah.
mircea_popescu: sort-of like any weed, trying to go in empty land
asciilifeform: not that the man isn't a snake
mircea_popescu: right.
asciilifeform: but he printed andreas because 1,000,001 chumps were ready to buy, not because prb necessarily.
mircea_popescu: which is the story here. derpopo's o'reilly's point man in "cryptoblockchainaltechnologies" after being kicked the fuck out of bitcoin.
mircea_popescu: (nobody could have predicted&it never happened etc)
mircea_popescu: he printed for the same reason vc generally prints : "gotta have finger in all pies you never know which you want later".
mircea_popescu: 0 to do with demand, which a) doesn't exist and b) is ALWAYS marketing driven anywa.
mircea_popescu: or what, you think anyone WANTED to read the fucking harry potter nonsense ?
asciilifeform: nfi, i never did...
asciilifeform: i'd rather read us state dept memis from 1940s.
asciilifeform: or - what i'm reading now, under a shade tree in middle of town - fusor schematics.
asciilifeform: mega-recommended, and moar interesting than folks think
