a111: Logged on 2016-09-08 23:46 mod6: It was my first hunch, during a pre-emptive go around with this to not place the makefiles in with current source base -- as pressed out via V.
asciilifeform: now it has 0 reason
asciilifeform brb, meat
mod6: I can't make heads or tails out out of what you're saying there asciilifeform.
mod6: When you come back, maybe we can discuss what you're trying to exactly say.
mod6: oh, if you're saying that the rotor is no longer needed, i can agree with that. to an extent anyway.
mod6: the two .sh scripts you have in there can be integrated into the makefiles directly i think. however, we'll still need the openssl-004-musl-termios.patch and rotor_buildroot_dot_config

a111: Logged on 2016-09-09 00:28 mod6: oh, if you're saying that the rotor is no longer needed, i can agree with that. to an extent anyway.
asciilifeform: the OLD build is obsolete
asciilifeform: the pre-musl 'stator'
mod6: oh yeah, we're not reall messing with any of that stuff. stator hasn't been a part of the 'orchastra' for some time now.
mod6: so, im not 100% off the top of my head, but getting rid of the two rotor build script and integrating that portion into our makefiles ~might~ resolve at least part of the source redundancy issue.
shinohai: Seriously mod6 it's coming along great, today's makefile build was so easy these Eulora noobs could probably do it.
mod6: good to hear :]
mod6: Actually, I forgot, trinque already did that part. Makefile.rotor exists.
mod6: It would probably need some tweaks in there ... hmm.
mod6: Well, if it could be done without having to move anything that is already in place (as far as bitcoin is concerned), then it might work out alright.
mod6: Will try to work that out.
mod6: This hypothetical solution, even if it does work, wouldn't make it a one-button-push solution. Why? A person would need to get V + V.sig, verify, create a .wot dir, sync the patches + seals, manually or automatically, press the tree, then navigate into the pressed tree, and then `make`.
mod6: The simplest solution would be to perhaps have a deedified tarball of makefiles, much like trinque already has, get the deed, verifiy it, decode it, extract it, navigate to the make script and `make`.
mod6: Then let the makefiles do all the rest of the heavy lifting.
mod6: bbs.

scriba: Logged on 2016-09-08: [23:52:51] <mod6> this is because the makefile process does it's own V press.
mircea_popescu: http://log.mkj.lt/trilema/20160908/#1163 << so then every time you try to get software running you have to two two presses, one of makefiles, one of sourcefiles ?
scriba: Logged on 2016-09-08: [23:59:57] <mod6> Altogether, since we have V, I like the idea of keeping things like makefiles and buildscripts out of the main source tree. One can get V, press the makefile project. Run a `make`, which will in-turn, press everything via V and then build with buildroot.
asciilifeform: i admit that the thing where v is invoked from inside a make always bothered me.
asciilifeform: invocations of v are meant to be ~conscious~
asciilifeform: i.e. manual.
mircea_popescu: myeah.
asciilifeform: like firing a pistol.
mircea_popescu: this isn't quite right as i understand it.
mod6: <+mircea_popescu> http://log.mkj.lt/trilema/20160908/#1160 << so basically we got v running twice ? << yeah, which wont do. after my monologue earlier, I have a hunch that I might be able to get it down to a single press.
scriba: Logged on 2016-09-08: [23:52:51] <mod6> this is because the makefile process does it's own V press.
mircea_popescu: why does make run a v anywya ?
mod6: well it's earliest implementation, was a clone of our build scripts, which, used V to pull and press the source.
mod6: anyway, i might be able to get it so that you press the tree, including the makefiles, and then just build.
asciilifeform: ^ the right thing.
mircea_popescu: ok let's approach it this way : what is so special about the make files that they get their own tree ? why not say, all .c files get their own, all .h files get their separate own ? inasmuch as you can't use the makefiles without the sources, they belong in the same tree as the sources.
mod6: (working on that / testing it now)
mircea_popescu: right, exactly.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: at one point we had 3 (then 2) quite separate types of builder.
mircea_popescu: yes i know
mircea_popescu: the early history of v is shrowded in chaos./
mod6: yeah, after discussing with myself in here mainly, i'm not in love with that solution either.
mod6: i could go on here.. but let's just say i didn't think it all the way through.
mircea_popescu: in other news, who mentioned pull chord ? http://66.media.tumblr.com/a2030738cf42c481f0ba7412b18b0c81/tumblr_oa73fsi0hH1v01y6oo1_1280.jpg
boolcrap: oh my
boolcrap: she was bad
mod6: i'll see where i can get to with this new idea. however, a person would have to do this to build the entire thing: get v; verify v; put vpatches, seals, and keys in place; press; then navigate to pressed dir, then `make`.
asciilifeform: boolcrap: looks like anyone you remember from the old dayz ?

boolcrap: we can only hope
mircea_popescu: mod6 make can't make from arbitrary dir ?
mod6: well, one would still need to press everything out, which includes the source and makefiles in this case.
mircea_popescu: " then navigate to pressed dir, " << i mean.
mod6: which, seems to be the "pistols" way
mod6: <+mircea_popescu> " then navigate to pressed dir, " << i mean. << ah, ok yeah one ~might~ be able to do that. not an expert on make tho.
mod6: that's the easy part imho. the hard part is getting v, et. al., set up.

asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: if we crash over an island, and have no rifle, it is still unwise to bolt-shit-to-side of the imagined rifle we lack together.
Framedragger: right. wonder if it's any harder to have the p2p part be separate. it can create a local mountpoint which would just be additional folders/files for V to process
mircea_popescu: Framedragger well the whole point is to stop wondering.
Framedragger: asciilifeform: also, talk about increased attack surface / complexity
Framedragger: (but yes it's easy to criticize)
mircea_popescu: most designs suffer a lot of changes when one tries to actually implement them, which is why prototypes exist in the first place.
Framedragger: sure, true.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform you can't "bolt things" to items that do not exist.
asciilifeform: i did propose that it might ALL come together in the end.
asciilifeform: e.g., gossip and bitcoin.
asciilifeform: not, i must add, as i proggy, but as system.
mircea_popescu: still, you know - most everything extant today started life as a nodule on something else. nothing wrong with this in principle.
asciilifeform: *1 prog
mircea_popescu: eventually they separate, if they do, or the nodule dies off/gets resorbed in the main trunk, or the trunk dies off and the nodule continues it instead, or or or.
mircea_popescu: certainly it is not contemplated here thatg anyone would be forced to run v to get gossipd. heck, i don't even believe such "forcing" would be in principle possible.
asciilifeform: $s light cone
a111: 8 results for "light cone", http://btcbase.org/log-search?q=light%20cone
asciilifeform: i did draw this picture once, mircea_popescu .
asciilifeform: and yes, it will happen.
mircea_popescu: on a vapkin!
asciilifeform: 'find my light cone' is an inevitable knob of gossipd.
shinohai wonders if asciilifeform has a binder full of napkin drawings in his lab
mircea_popescu: well, the principal difference between gossipd-for-v and gossipd-proper is that v operates on signed matter exclusively ; gossipd-proper operates on unsigned matter exclusively.
mircea_popescu: $up vivas82
mircea_popescu: didja read shinohai 's guide vivas82 ?
shinohai: !!up vivas82
asciilifeform: a gossipd link of degree 1 ( 'private message' in mircea_popescu's version of the sketch ) operates on signed matter
deedbot: vivas82 voiced for 30 minutes.
mircea_popescu: if you sign something, there's no further degrees.
mircea_popescu: third party can check a signature as well as you can.
asciilifeform: third party doesn't see it
mircea_popescu: this is not only a ridiculous hope, but contrary to design principle. the point of gossipd is that he sees.
mircea_popescu: anyway. identity doesn't need signature to be checked. behold :
vivas82: Thanks.
mircea_popescu: !!rate deedbot 1 How are you gonna check it's really me, bitch ?
deedbot: Get your OTP: http://wotpaste.cascadianhacker.com/r/lylkw/?raw=true
asciilifeform: protocol vs promise.
asciilifeform: only sig is actual protocol.
mircea_popescu: a gossipd that requires me to sign anything is not to any degree interesting.
mircea_popescu: i'll just continue using my current system, because such a gossipd would be an outrageous degradation of everything.
asciilifeform: signs with station key, not royal key
asciilifeform: or your packets are not distinguishable from cosmic noise from pov of my station.
mircea_popescu: it quickly becomes dubious. because a signature permits a certain relationship. whereas gossipd rests on dubious relationships.
mircea_popescu: yeah, they are. much like deedbot distinguishes above.
asciilifeform: deedbot, as it lives on fleanode, is promisetronic.
mircea_popescu: here's the handshake : syn -> 5db1fee4b5703808c48078a76768b155b421b210c0761cd6a5d223f4d99f1eaa -> 1337 -> ack.
asciilifeform: could have been replaced with hitler's 5min ago .
mircea_popescu: you're switching things. the point is that deedbot knows it is really me ; not vice-versa.
asciilifeform: it - aha
asciilifeform: because you decoded.
mircea_popescu: so i signed nothing and yet IT (and only it) could know it was me. this is important.
mircea_popescu: what's more important is that gossipd works like otp : "sure you can decrypt this text mr evil. WHAT would you like it to decrypt to ?"
mircea_popescu: no "you can't decrypt it". but "you can decrypt it, of course. to anything you wish."|
asciilifeform: rsa unfortunately does not give this.
deedbot: http://qntra.net/2016/09/democratic-peoples-republic-of-best-korea-conducts-fifth-nuclear-test/ << Qntra - Democratic People's Republic Of Best Korea Conducts Fifth Nuclear Test
mircea_popescu: it's my considered oppinion it does, if used as above.
mircea_popescu: in any case rsa signatures are contrary to this, however.
asciilifeform: only otp actually creates this effect.
asciilifeform: an rsagram cannot 'decrypt to whatever you want'
asciilifeform: its true key, should it ever turn up, is distinguishable from any other bitstring.
mircea_popescu: the "decrypt to whatever you want" part is not about the rsagram itself, but about the structure of relationships.
mircea_popescu: if you have signed matter, then definite things can be said. otherwise - you need a priest.
mircea_popescu: and a priest will do whatever you want him to do.
asciilifeform: i fully grasp what mircea_popescu wants to accomplish here, but it does not work with his stated mechanism.
shinohai: Priests can withold absolution however
mircea_popescu: you;ll have to go into detail bout that asciilifeform
asciilifeform: didn't we do this before..
mircea_popescu: shinohai we'rte talking from the pov of the lord not the pleb here. priest does exactly as told or else fucks goats in the receptive sense of the term.
shinohai: >.<
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform apparently not profitably.
asciilifeform: a working gossipd must combine two seemingly-contradictory features: 1) friend-or-foe identification on single packet - no such thing as ddos or replay remains possible -- 2) enemy on the wire can learn nothing about relation graph.
mircea_popescu: except a working model of 1 is already both deployed and theoretically understood, as described above.
asciilifeform: there are several ways to cut this knot, but thus far i am not satisfied with any
mircea_popescu: understand, from the fact you observe deedbot has accepted my order you do not know anything other than that - to DEEDBOT it is acceptable. ie, you're uysing a priest. this is fine.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: deedbot is not a working model of 1packetron omfg
mircea_popescu: how not ? again. syn -> 5db1fee4b5703808c48078a76768b155b421b210c0761cd6a5d223f4d99f1eaa -> 1337 -> ack.
asciilifeform: it does NOT follow the nothing-to-allcomers principle.
mircea_popescu: it does. because if it doesn't know me, it can't answer to my syn now can it.
mircea_popescu: i'd say it's actually "nothing to all comers" guaranteedly, you can't break this even if you want to.
asciilifeform: it could if you were both sybils today.
mircea_popescu: wait what ? who "both"
asciilifeform: both replaced with muppets.
asciilifeform: deedbot and mircea_popescu in this example.
mircea_popescu: a network between a and b who have BOTH been replaced ?
mircea_popescu: this is lulzy.
asciilifeform: from my pov.
mircea_popescu: ah, with an invariant c. so how do you break it ? or what ?
asciilifeform: what's there to break?
mircea_popescu: i just dunno what you're saying starting 8 lines ago. "<asciilifeform> it could if you were both sybils today."
asciilifeform: but, to briefly rewind, there are two wholly separate concerns here and should be drawn separately.
asciilifeform: one is to banish mosquitoes from the atmosphere. for which -- single-packet 'man or mosquito' litmus is required.
asciilifeform: other - is the mechanism described in mircea_popescu's sketch.
mircea_popescu: do this again and do it properly, without reference.
asciilifeform: which
mircea_popescu: <asciilifeform> but, to briefly rewind, << and following. static linking, not dynamic linking. your "the mechanism described in mircea_popescu's sketch." symbol is not acceptabru.
asciilifeform: what, lel, let's restate whole thing..?
Framedragger: http://log.mkj.lt/trilema/20160909/#343 << isn't the reason it's currently able to do that (send otps to check) is because it's not interesting enough so parties flood it with bogus requests and generally DoS it to shreds?
scriba: Logged on 2016-09-09: [12:36:29] <mircea_popescu> except a working model of 1 is already both deployed and theoretically understood, as described above.
Framedragger: hence why http://log.mkj.lt/trilema/20160909/#346
scriba: Logged on 2016-09-09: [12:37:26] <asciilifeform> mircea_popescu: deedbot is not a working model of 1packetron omfg
asciilifeform: Framedragger has it.
mircea_popescu: in a word, no.
mircea_popescu: how would you send otps to check to a person you don't know ?
mircea_popescu: it does currently extend the courtesy of replying to unknowns, but this is not required.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform well yes restate the whole thing. apparently there's a knot somewhere.
asciilifeform: enemy controls not only fleanode but most large isp, so it can send whatever string wherever.
mircea_popescu: so ?
Framedragger: ah, you mean that it could restrict sending challenges to gpg identities that it *already* knows about (l1 / l2 / whatever)?
mircea_popescu: you still can't answer, for lack of a way to form your answer.
mircea_popescu: Framedragger i mean it already does this lol. necessarily.
mircea_popescu: how would it send a challende encrypted to a key it does not have ?
asciilifeform: so it is trivial exercise to determine where deedbot lives and - at least - syn flood it.
Framedragger: mircea_popescu: pull the key. which it effectively does with the `register` command
asciilifeform: syn flood is challenge enough, because tcp is braindamaged.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform that is an orthogonal concern which entirely does not belong in this discussion.
Framedragger contemplates a PoC `register` attack on deedbot
mircea_popescu: Framedragger but it dfoesn't HAVE to do that.
asciilifeform: it is unfortunately not (yet) a separable concern.
Framedragger: mircea_popescu: sure, that i admit.
mircea_popescu: just because owner currently automated a hole into the ship doesn't mean that hole doesn't come with a pre-made hatch.
asciilifeform: see, right now we have 'cheat' in the sense that fleanode allows mircea_popescu to manually control access to deedbot .
Framedragger: then the argument does admittedly slide a little: yes okay, this is great that it can't be DoS'd that easily when the time comes; and yet it still has to parse multiple packets before it determines that hey, i don't know this fingerprint.
mircea_popescu: why multiple ?
asciilifeform: it could easily stop tomorrow.
mircea_popescu: "syn".
asciilifeform: Framedragger seems to grasp my line of thought.
mircea_popescu: what, you want him to represent you nao ?
Framedragger: hm there *is* https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc7413 for "send data in packet with syn flag already", in truth; haven't touched it tho
asciilifeform: i dun expect other folks to do my work in my place, no.
mircea_popescu: Framedragger aha.
asciilifeform: Framedragger: tcp is evil.
mircea_popescu: sure ; also kinda besides teh point.
asciilifeform: even if you stuff crypto sig into packet1
Framedragger: is rfc7413 even supported by any tcp stack tho? (inb4 all tcp stacks must die!1 [not disagreeing in principle])
mircea_popescu: (not to mention - you brought it up, entirely ungermane to the discussion, so you can't now detrimentally rely on it.)
asciilifeform: it still has plaintext seq nums
Framedragger: suresure.
asciilifeform: and unsigned terminations
asciilifeform: and ergo must die.
asciilifeform: let's briefly gedankenexperiment:
asciilifeform: say we gotta leave fleanode.
asciilifeform: because it, say, burns down at last.
mircea_popescu: how about we don't mix discussions of prototyping with discussion of random opsec challenges.
asciilifeform: sketch the parachute here plox
mircea_popescu: nobody afaik starts discussion of new car model with "Suppose the islamists invade our plant"
mircea_popescu: what, you're going to make a tank ? "new from mercedes. six gun ports."
asciilifeform: this digression is unfortunately needed. because it exposes the point i was making earlier.
asciilifeform: fleanode gives us a cheap plastic imitation of gossipd currently.
mircea_popescu: if we have to leave freenode before gossipd is ready we'll reimplement ircd.
asciilifeform: reimplement in what sense ?
mircea_popescu: in the sense of how we implemented log bots that work, on the basis of whatever was there before, which apparently didn't work, or at least didn't work as well or w/e.
asciilifeform: and it will run on what? six dudes' servers ?
mircea_popescu: no, you must be thinking of freenode.
mircea_popescu: which, literally, six dude's servers, half of which provided by nsa.
asciilifeform: whose locations will somehow remain unknown to enemy, hdds - unstolen , packets - unmangled ?
mircea_popescu: we'll just use our servers in ft meade, what.
mircea_popescu: get some of that lulzy "we know it's here but we can't turn it off because red tape" bonus going on.
asciilifeform: i admit that i always liked that part.
asciilifeform: though iirc this was in another mircea_popescutronic production
deedbot: http://trilema.com/2016/industria-argentina-or-my-life-among-the-tribal-savages/ << Trilema - Industria Argentina, or my life among the tribal savages.
asciilifeform digs in hungrily
mircea_popescu: but all this stuff aside, back to the important point here : the "gossipd-like" thing contemplated for moving signed material (ie, v stuff) around is very much a different beast from the actual gossipd, which doesn't work on signed material ; presumably doesn't work on tcp etc.
mircea_popescu: now, taking a tiny incremental step by providing redundancy for v while at the same time trying a udp implementation si a very sensible move at this juncture.
mircea_popescu: at least, it so appears to me.
mircea_popescu: (redundancy for v - meant strictly in the sense of, an alternative to moving tarball by hand)
PeterL: what keeps you from moving a signed message thorugh gossipd?
asciilifeform: ^
mircea_popescu: that i don't intend to sign anything.
Framedragger: semi-orthogonal (but not too orthogonal): ditching the conceptual level for a second and thinking about mundane reality, would a new transport layer even *work* given current internet infrastructure? there are problems with ICMP traffic on some ISPs (sure, ISPs should die anyway, and esp. those i hear you say.) this can be tested to some extent, hm.
mircea_popescu: signatgures have their utility. they have been (perhaps deliberately, in any case stupidly) misused by the usg.cypherpunk "movement".
Framedragger: s/transport layer/transport layer protocol/
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: you signed vpatch. can as readily broadcast it via gossip as via fleanode etc.
mircea_popescu: Framedragger i dunno, it's pretty nebulous
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform vpatch, yes. this line, no.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: aha
mircea_popescu: it's not that i'm against signatures or anything of the sort. it's just that i understand their domain. an item is signed when the auctorial intention is "for this to stand now and forever to any and all who may come".
mircea_popescu: this is pointedly not what gossipd does.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu-signed vpatch can be made known over whatever medium. shortwave, if he likes.
mircea_popescu: gossipd does "for friends ears only". and the only way to make sure that can't happen, si by signing things. because once signed, they're definitionally for everyone equally well.
mircea_popescu: in short, i oppose the socially destructuring, anti elitist and equalitarian nature of signatures.
asciilifeform: much of what i've been doing in the mathematics room for past year has been to try to give this frying pan a handle.
asciilifeform: yes, pan is hot. and hand - made of meat.
mircea_popescu: myeah.
Framedragger: btw wouldn't "nothing signed" gossipd reality actually be not "only among chosen clique" but rather "only chosen among clique [so, okay, not for all] plus whoever listens to internet backbone including all teh agencies"?
Framedragger: (i am aware that proper gossipd doesn't have to run over internet)
mircea_popescu: Framedragger if you're not connected, how do you distinguish what was said from what might have been said from what wasn't actually said ?
mircea_popescu: that's the otp-likeness contemplated, you know the place where this is discussed in the logs ?
Framedragger: mircea_popescu: statistical models? sure, no *guarantee*.
Framedragger: i think i actually remember it
mircea_popescu: statistical models only work on statistical data. ie, flat.
mircea_popescu: this isn't flat.
mircea_popescu: it may be flattenable, and a large part of what we'll be doing is explore those graphs etc, but atm this is premature, we don't even have a prototype.
mircea_popescu: (note however that "statistical models" are so horrible in doing simple things such as "election outcome" prediction as to not lend much credence to this theory.)
Framedragger: maybe. and i agree that without prototype difficult to talk of this anyway
mircea_popescu: but, importantly, statistics works on datapoints - which are each as much a datapoint as all the others ! this is major.
mircea_popescu: in fact, it's even aware of this ; and it has some (primitive, axe hewn) methods to use the proper space to "improve" its data
mircea_popescu: for instance by rejecting outliers in a set. what you're doing then, in proper terms, is saying "since we have all this space left in the hierarchy cube, how about we use it to improve the dataset while still pretending it's just a sheet"
mircea_popescu: so you take a few points out.
Framedragger: yes this is lulzy and a disservice and i agree the reputation is not insanely great.., so to speak.
Framedragger: mircea_popescu: how about i (an nsa employee, say) just make a filter which grabs all observed gossipd traffic (packet timing or w/e, and if it's an actually new transmission protocol, then supreme joy is me) and send it for further analysis. i shall assume that while it's not certain which messages are legit and which are not, the offending t3rr0rist group is too lazy to transmit proper false positives to provide noise,
Framedragger: besides, they'd get confused themselves, what with deliberately no message authenticity; and we shall have a good time. am i stretching here?
mircea_popescu: Framedragger so you do everyone the favour of taking out the lazy "terrorist" groups ? thank you ?
mircea_popescu: the point here isn't to make idiots more powerful.
mircea_popescu: i dunno when or why the prevailing notion of "software" and "technology", at least in english and its dominions, became "it is for to make ordinary people (ie, rank imbeciles) like gods!"
Framedragger: and gossipd without any auth whatsoever wouldn't really be that? in all honesty, i should reread the spec, which is probably outdated, and log search sucks, fml
mircea_popescu: it... isn't. it fucking isn't. the point of technology is the complete and utter oppression of idiots.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: probably when the prometeus dude stole the fire?
asciilifeform: was when.
mircea_popescu: not really. there's no record that he went and gave it to retards.
asciilifeform: 'ooh, fire, now we are godz!1111'
Framedragger: (or so the myth is interpreted anyway right?)
mircea_popescu: on the contrary - he stole it to the sort of retards who'd pick the large pile of bones skins and fat
mircea_popescu: and gave it to the smart guys who tohught to pile all the meat in the smalelr pile.
mircea_popescu: zeus is not remarkably smart, you know.
mircea_popescu: Framedragger so the myth was reinterpreted, by later imbeciles, who don't even speak greek.
Framedragger: true that. goes the extra way to fuck women, metamorphosis and all, so i'll give him that tho
Framedragger: mircea_popescu: true..
mircea_popescu: but anyway - the greek idea of gods doesn't have them as a sort of christian deity, omnipotent, all wise etc. it's not fucking allah.
mircea_popescu: it's zeus, a sort of nero, the overpowerful lucky bastard.
asciilifeform: this is kindergarten material - does anyone really misconceive zeus et al as 'allahs' ?!
mircea_popescu: well apparently you jus' did, above ?
asciilifeform: mno?
mircea_popescu: anyway. prometeus stole from the dumb to give to the smart.
mircea_popescu: which is exactly as it should be.
mircea_popescu: obv, the dumb had something to steal the smart wanted. there'd be no story otherwise.
asciilifeform: my point was that human tards also got fire.
mircea_popescu: not originally.
mircea_popescu: human tards wondered about greek fire for 12 centuries.
asciilifeform: btw recall how turks captured intact and fueled-up siphons and went wtf ?
mircea_popescu: aha
asciilifeform: i always wondered
asciilifeform: evidently there was something more to it than cranking the pump.
mircea_popescu: yeah. "not being an imbecile".
asciilifeform: even ww2 flamethrowers had tricky ignition.
asciilifeform: it is the mega-problem of the item.
mircea_popescu: the principal limit is in people's heads, not in the fucking reality surroundant.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform you know what also is tricky ? anal sex.
mircea_popescu: they figured that out.
asciilifeform: what's the trick?

asciilifeform: it breaks from work hardening.

asciilifeform: without exception.
asciilifeform: and for past decade+.
mircea_popescu: i never contested apple's a fucking zoo.
asciilifeform: they have replaceable mains ends though, so the death happens on the low voltage dc side.
asciilifeform: but looks quite the same.
asciilifeform: and i mist dispute that 'others got right'. the ~correct~ wire for an item like this is ~coiled~ like old telephone cord. and is afaik available nowhere.

asciilifeform: i was trying just the other week to buy for my cnc motors.
asciilifeform: cannot be had.
asciilifeform: at any price.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: it isn't the shitmetal in this case.
asciilifeform: you need sane geometry.
asciilifeform: avoid kink radius.
mircea_popescu: sure, sure. a proper alloy saves you from shitty geometry, but you can't use zamac.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: wire is silver-coloured ?
asciilifeform: hard to see on photo
mircea_popescu: lulzy intro : ro construction codes throughout fully banned aluminum wiring, to the point they'd hang you.
mircea_popescu: this went away. about the time the idiot us-style builders moved in.
mircea_popescu: now they want to mandate sprinklers.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: even in usa they banned
mircea_popescu: lemme cut that thing up
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: also i must sadly point out that aluminum wire is a forced mistake -- copper price.
asciilifeform: it will come back into the habitations of poorfags
asciilifeform: inevitably. it'll be it -- or candlelight.
Framedragger: [OT just for the record, it seems that rfc 7413 ("tcp fast open") won't do any good because (lo and behold) not only would it not save against syn floods, it'd actually introduce new attacks (2.2 and beyond). and existing mitigation techniques may not work. gotta love those people. yeah, fuck tcp.]
asciilifeform: Framedragger: not only tcp, but the horse it rode in on. whole thing must burn.
Framedragger: [like, *of course* the only reason we want a spec which allows for data in initial syn packet is for shitphones to be able to load google ads quicker. use for security???! nowai]
asciilifeform: tcp has no future, Framedragger .
asciilifeform: shoot it in the head, pour cement.
Framedragger: asciilifeform: that's what i'm worried about, you may have to burn IP, too. and i'm all up for mesh networks and post nuclear radio, but kinda sucks that the whole internet backbone may be incompatible with proper gossipd, gotta admit.
asciilifeform: Framedragger: backbone is usable to the extent it can simulate radio.
asciilifeform: i.e. connectionless passing of data.
Framedragger: good perspective, i guess
asciilifeform: where the source and destination are not known to one another spatially.
PeterL: asciilifeform don't you know the future is wireless power? We won't need all this copper running through our houses once we make the *tech breakthrough*!

PeterL: and if you buy cheapo beef, there is lots of fat drippings to make candles with!
mircea_popescu: it doesn't fucking behave like copper.

mod6: interesting convo this am re: gossipd & v
asciilifeform: mod6: the correct pill is to decouple (at least from enemy's pov) gossip station keys from royal keys.
mod6: <+mircea_popescu> http://log.mkj.lt/trilema/20160909/#23 << yes mod6 but to clarify : "one button" refers to the situation where the user already has a trusted copy of V, and a .sig directory populated as per his taste. these are part of the definition of identity, and going forward can and should be assumed present. << Sounds fair. Thanks for outlining this.
scriba: Logged on 2016-09-09: [00:55:24] <mod6> This hypothetical solution, even if it does work, wouldn't make it a one-button-push solution. Why? A person would need to get V + V.sig, verify, create a .wot dir, sync the patches + seals, manually or automatically, press the tree, then navigate into the pressed tree, and then `make`.
asciilifeform: ~how~ to do this in a protocolic (rather than promisetronic) way, is another matter.
asciilifeform: but machines receiving, and responding to, packet matter signed by NO ONE, has NO future.
mod6: <+asciilifeform> http://btcbase.org/log/2016-09-09#1538037 << lel what has mircea_popescu been drinking...? << It is an intersting thought; a distributed V, which rails against the complaints of "omfg another centralized piece of equipment!!11"☝︎
a111: Logged on 2016-09-09 10:50 mircea_popescu: incidentally asciilifeform mod6 trinque et all : what would you think about adding a p2p client to V ? it'd be like a daemon which listens for connections from peers and maintains lists of pressables.
asciilifeform: v as it presently exists (at least in my prototype) is 100% decentralized.
mod6: indeed.
mod6: and mine can be used, 100% in the same way. im not even sure that i fully agree that mine should do what it does. you and I both, seperately have wrestled with this thought.
mod6: V has a future. interesting to think about where it may go from here.
mod6: someday, when we have a tmsr cryptolib & rsa-o-matic, maybe we can starting building a gossipd prototype.

mod6: oh wait, forgot about the wonky-fan
shinohai: see >>> http://trilema.com/2016/industria-argentina-or-my-life-among-the-tribal-savages/
mod6: yeah, forgot about that. anyway, i appreciate interesting ideas.
mod6: a lot of new questions and discussions will arise once someone starts to prototype gossipd out.
shinohai: I agree with trinque tho that V has a place in /usr/bin/local of the future
mod6: well, indeed, if it continues to be useful and oft used.
mod6: i need more coffee.
mod6: <+asciilifeform> mod6: the correct pill is to decouple (at least from enemy's pov) gossip station keys from royal keys. << so to clairify this a bit, at least for myself, the gossipd node that I run and operate would verify transmissions sent to it with mod6-battlestation-key, but when I would actually go to send something out it would sign with mod6 "royal" or "personal" key?
mod6: maybe...
mod6: i don't want to disagree with what I just said here: <+mod6> a lot of new questions and discussions will arise once someone starts to prototype gossipd out.
mod6: but, maybe the first step, to recognize Framedragger, is to update the spec. there has been much discussion about this, and maybe I'm having a hard time keeping all of the details in my head.
mircea_popescu: how's work mod6 ?
mod6: boring.
mircea_popescu: that's its job!
shinohai: I take it your female java shadow isn't there?
mod6: haha. indeed, hopefully will rid myself of these labors someday soon.
mod6: shinohai: yup.
mircea_popescu: come to think of it, is there such a thing as a gossipd spec even ? what's the current canonical version ?
mircea_popescu: the two year old http://trilema.com/2015/artifexd-a-better-ircd-rfc/ ?
mod6: i'd have to dig it up, but i thought there was a trilema that outlined the 'spec' back a while ago.
mod6: yah that, maybe.
mircea_popescu: ok this is pretty scandalous.
mircea_popescu: ima publish an updated thing, at least give discussion some sort of basis that's not 19 months out of date.
mod6: very much appreciated, and my apologies if the original is still on point.
mircea_popescu: marginally at best.
mod6: more than anything, i just want to be able to contribue a bit better to these gossipd discussions - which will be a vital part of the infrastructure.
mod6: thanks mircea_popescu
phf: we had a thread about it two weeks ago, where the conclusion was that gossipd as written in the only available spec has all kinds of problems and shouldn't be implemented/used
mircea_popescu: pretty much.
mircea_popescu: (i just wrote that lol)
mod6: phf: ah, indeed then, we should rework it with what we've since discussed and rethought since 2015 or whenever, and see if a prototyping process can begin.

asciilifeform: there is 'mod6' and 'castle of mod6'.
asciilifeform: simply because something was said in the castle of mod6 , does not mean that it was he who said it.
asciilifeform: what i've referred to as 'station key' is simply a nonspoofable substitute for the ip address.
asciilifeform: and nowhere is it mandated that a station has only a sole key
mod6: ah, alright.
phf: (that idea is actually introduced in original gossip spec, but it's not obvious without rereading relevant bits a few times that it allows you to have secondary key
asciilifeform: for so long as other stations can reliably communicate with it amidst arbitrary levels of enemy shitflooding
phf: )
asciilifeform: phf: aha, the 'for' item.
asciilifeform: it is unfortunately also one of the weak points in mircea_popescu's original sketch, as an enemy who turns up a 'for' binding signature can make an attribution of station ownership.
mod6: and i suppose this makes it easier to swap out the station key and retain the royal key.
asciilifeform: that is, can infer a link between a station key and royal key.
asciilifeform: mod6: no lord in his right mind would connect his royal key to a machine that emits signed material autonomously.
asciilifeform: (or deciphers autonomously)
asciilifeform: this is kindergarten material.
mod6: right. i think this whole topic is totally over my head these days.
mod6: i better reread all of this stuff :/
asciilifeform: mod6: presently it is a machine which contains a box labeled ???, which is the answer to a mathematical problem.
asciilifeform: (attribution 'for us but not for them'.)
asciilifeform: whereas 'attribution for no one' is the current net and whoever wants it, already has it.
asciilifeform: and it is doomed to sybilatronic heat death.
asciilifeform: earlier in thread, mircea_popescu pointed out - correctly - that signature is not the only form of cryptoauthentication, and that there is also challenge-response, a la deedbot etc.
asciilifeform: but challenge-response requires 2way comms.
asciilifeform: and violates the principle of nothing-to-allcomers.
asciilifeform: (if all-comer can get a challenge, this not only makes you ddosable tcp-style, but turns your gossip net into a ddosatron weapon for any idiot who can get spoofed packets into it)
asciilifeform: ntp-style.
asciilifeform: and anyone who - like mircea_popescu earlier - states that 'but all-comer will ~not~ be able to request a challenge' is stuck explaining why not.
asciilifeform: ('because he does not know the ip to ask' is an idiot answer. you don't even need to be at ft meade, Framedragger's scanner could easily be modified to send a challenge req to entire ipv4 space every couple of hours.)
asciilifeform: enemy must NOT have the ability to determine that an arbitrary ip contains a gossip node.
asciilifeform: *determine whether
asciilifeform: this is the basic nothing-to-allcomers principle. for wot - everything. for rando - NOTHING. not even 'challenge packet' or whatever.
Framedragger: http://btcbase.org/log/2016-09-09#1538451 << it's good you acknowledge that, 'cause very time i want to point out "where's your $spec for $x guyz" i feel kinda shit 'cause i should do more, myself. which is a point. and yet the scandalocity remains!☝︎

asciilifeform: Framedragger: there is nothing simple about it.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i'ma be answering throughout teh day!
asciilifeform: Framedragger: do you propose to keep track of all nonces used for all time ?
asciilifeform: whereas if you make it incremental, you leak information that third parties have no business knowing.
Framedragger: nonce + hmac? ah, but, hmac uses symmetric crypto oh noes :/
Framedragger: hm.
Framedragger: i am oversimplifying, i guess
Framedragger: actually, nm. if you don't want to leak incremental info of this kind, i guess it does become more difficult
mircea_popescu: it gets worse, the concept of "incremental" is undefined.
asciilifeform: ^
Framedragger: asciilifeform: tho am not sure if it's necessarily bad, to leak incremental nonces. i mean, i know you don't want to leak one single useful bit to da enemy; i don't know if it's a practical constraint, even if it is laudible.
Framedragger: suresure.
Framedragger: tcp seq id's again? :/ right.
asciilifeform: Framedragger: idea is to leak 0.
mircea_popescu: Framedragger understand what the problem is here. it's not that you give away the secret number 40084059534. it's that you give away the fact that you and X both somehow live in a world where ++ means something.
asciilifeform: especially not a useful tidbit such as 'how long node a and b have been in communion'
mircea_popescu: this is necessarily not gossipd / bitcoin / p2p world.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu nails it.
Framedragger: " 'how long node a and b have been in communion'" - right, that i can understand, that it's not good
Framedragger: right.
mircea_popescu: not even just how long. it's just a sort of coupling. "these two have a solution to us army general problem"

mircea_popescu: ok this multi-comment thing is getting out of hand. why not just think the thing through and say it once.
asciilifeform: i did.
asciilifeform: and came to conclusion that there is a massive hole in the scheme sketched out in subj link, that i can drive a maersk cargo liner through.
mircea_popescu: so far this isn't a shared view.
mircea_popescu: anyways, i shall bbl!
asciilifeform: answr'd.
asciilifeform: as it stands, the cost to E of replaying any or all of the packets between A and B, or reordering, is 0.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu's answer appears to be 'lala can't hear you.'
asciilifeform: this has not been an especially productive discussion.
asciilifeform: E can ding A and B for less cost to himself than they incur from said ding. which is the elementary particle from which ddos is made.
asciilifeform: (picture a weapon that kills the same POPULATION PERCENTAGE of the firer's army as of the enemy. it would be quite useless. any weapon requires asymmetry to work.)
asciilifeform: and mircea_popescu's favorite rhetorical device is 'this is not relevant.' hey, it's the man's own blog, who am i to say that he has to consider my observations relevant. but this nonsense won't keep rainwater out of a tent, much less ft meade.
asciilifeform: in approx. the sage's own words, 'piss in one hand, argument irrelevance in the other, see which one weighs more.'
asciilifeform: and if i can describe (and i can) how the scheme can be broken WITHOUT breaking the cipher, then the cipher is decorative.
asciilifeform: promisetronic.
asciilifeform: just like the idiot 'tamper seals' that are trivially broken every day, not only by usg but by turd world pissant secret services, merely by penetrating the ENVELOPE.

asciilifeform: which is an epicycle
asciilifeform: begs the question, why not simply communicate over this magical submarine cable to begin with ?

trinque: penises, how do they work
jurov: hydraulics!
mircea_popescu: why hydraulics, it only has one head...
trinque now stuck imagining this stuff stuck in urethra
mircea_popescu recommends trinque undergo a recreational sounds session.
jurov: http://www.medicaldaily.com/new-male-birth-control-sperm-switch-temporaily-sterilizes-men-flip-switch-368784 << yet better stuff to imagine
trinque: mircea_popescu: hey that has a handle you can pull, or so I gather
mircea_popescu: slowly, ideally.
jurov: but ben_vulpes is proll going for remote activation by rsa sig via gossipd
mircea_popescu: btw jurov mind protesting the heteronormative pronz a little bit, i need something to counterbalance alf!
ben_vulpes: jurov: upside of the plastic is that it is porous and doesn't clog
mircea_popescu: from what i've seen, the porous stuff and the porous stuff only clogs.
mircea_popescu: kinda the definition of these terms, neh ?
jurov: ben_vulpes: but no rsa signatures re involved!
ben_vulpes: jurov: myeah i gave up on the cyberpunk dream of technology in my body a loooong time ago.
ben_vulpes: heh i actually remember when it was! 'diamond age' has a great gag where the poors with shitty ocular implants have to suffer viral ads all day and go insane
mircea_popescu: anyway, think of all the great stuff blockchain technologies allows, guise! you could have like, a satoshi dice based aviator's club, whereby the men all put their house keys in a pile and the women pick from there as previously, BUT whether the dick works or not is now blockchain lottery based!
mircea_popescu: and all the resulting children can be called satoshi!
ben_vulpes: viral in the sense of virii in the implants
mircea_popescu: "the poors", check it out.
mircea_popescu likes the idea.
ben_vulpes: mircea_popescu: "clog" here meaning that jurovs valve needs blowing off.
jurov: ben_vulpes: unreleased sperm eventually just decays in the balls
mircea_popescu: and to your detriment.
ben_vulpes: something something alzheimers something something immune system
mircea_popescu: something something like that.

a111: Logged on 2016-01-08 00:12 asciilifeform: and even not considering this absurdity, you would have same problem as vasectomy patient (the sperm gets reabsorbed and your immune system begins to generate antibodies against it. with bonus measurable extra risk of alzheimer's)
ben_vulpes: i did eventually run the citation down, 'twas some less than thirty old men with beginning signs of alzheimers who realized they all had vasectomies
asciilifeform: ahahaha nice , asciilifeform doesn't need to crank the logtron, other folks will do it !111
asciilifeform: if only this worked for everything else!
mircea_popescu: you could just store all the sperm
ben_vulpes: let's store all the sperm in the appendix
trinque: would not blow my mind that this leads towards autoimmune disorders
mircea_popescu: great idea! it's predestined for it : appen-dicks
ben_vulpes: lol
mircea_popescu: from old german to appen
trinque: iirc there's speculation alzheimers *is* autoimmune
asciilifeform: trinque, ben_vulpes : the first tipoff that one can immunologically zap own spermatozoids came not from alzheimer's patients, but from folks attempting to have vasectomy reversed
mircea_popescu: did i drop the "prionic" alt-explanation in log or no ? i... can't recall ?
asciilifeform: and who noticed that the reversal worked mechanically, but somehow ~0 spermatozoons made it to the other end.

a111: Logged on 2016-01-19 22:00 mircea_popescu: they recently discovered that it's quite likely alzheimer's is a prion based infectious disease,
mircea_popescu: o ty!
mircea_popescu cranks trilema, discovers no stan replies, is baffled by this development.
asciilifeform: lel
mircea_popescu: it can't be that you're ~satisfied~ can it ?!
asciilifeform: nope.
asciilifeform: just that i only have 2handz.
mircea_popescu: and another myth shatters.
asciilifeform: free.
mircea_popescu: "kyle go clean your room this instant!" "sorry mom, i... i... i malloc'd my hands and i think there were some double free's in there or something!"
mircea_popescu: "i can't find my hands."
asciilifeform: http://trilema.com/2016/gossipd-design-document/#comment-118941 << there you go.
mircea_popescu: btw, speaking of this : any chance one of the bot masters wants to add a "subscribe to comments" option ? whereby i go !~subscribe http://trilema.com/2016/gossipd-design-document/feed/ and it pings me whenever there's new ones ?
mircea_popescu: seems kinda doofy to do this by hand.
asciilifeform: fortunately this is not an exercise we repeat very often.
trinque: I can just throw it in the RSS list
jurov: i found whole discussion too funny, had to throw some 2c in on trilema
trinque: actually, can add !!subscribe for L1 which adds to RSS list, and then can be used for this or anything else that arises
ben_vulpes simply subscribed to the trilema comments feed
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform possibly more often as time goes by ; because the problem of sorting things by topics is becoming more pressing.
mircea_popescu: trinque but ideally it just pms the subscribers see
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes i'm not using a rss-tron anymore ; bots ruined me for it.
trinque: ah, possible with current feed eater.
trinque: it has a notion of to whom to send
ben_vulpes: mircea_popescu: you know standing up a trinquebot isn't terrifically difficult
mircea_popescu: yeah tru.
mircea_popescu: trinque nice, say when
jurov: on second thought ... oops i inadvertently supported my point by leaking s3cr3t trilema email :( feel free to censor it
mircea_popescu: jurov you might have noticed it's not even in the contact list anymore.
jurov: aok
mircea_popescu had girl swallow his cufflink (accidentally!), took her earrings in restitution. discovered that he kinda likes earring cufflinks.
mircea_popescu: such barbarian.
ben_vulpes: how, praytell, does one swallow a cufflink accidentally?
mircea_popescu: it was one of those things.
shinohai: Did you get your cufflink back mircea_popescu ?
mircea_popescu: not so far.
shinohai imagines many hours and a bottle of castor oil later ......
mircea_popescu: naah
mircea_popescu: swallowing cufflinks accidentally not on the castor oil list of bad girl behaviours
ben_vulpes: put girl through sifter until cufflinks emerge
mircea_popescu: she can keep it.
shinohai: "geez Mircea, I have never seen such smooth, polished cufflinks. What's your secret?"
ben_vulpes: feed cufflinks to girl, put girl in polisher
mircea_popescu: lol
mircea_popescu: tumbler
ben_vulpes: putting girl in tumblr is a different hobby
ben_vulpes: put /dick/ in girl, put girl in tumblr.
ben_vulpes: voila, polished dick.
mircea_popescu: hm
mircea_popescu: this new learning amazes me.
ben_vulpes: and no lsd even
mircea_popescu: eh, considering where you live, it's prolly in the tap water by now
ben_vulpes off to contemplate burning another fortune chasing a larger fortune
mircea_popescu: like estrogen in washington dc
ben_vulpes: no that's floride, which is just as hallucinogenic as nitrous
asciilifeform: http://trilema.com/2016/gossipd-design-document/#comment-118946 << moar fun.
ben_vulpes off to burn a fortune in a fit of pique

phf: mircea_popescu: so you're saying i should change $s too?
mircea_popescu: change a111 's control sequences whatever they may be currently to !# only please.
shinohai thanks BingoBoingo for his patience as editor
phf: i see
mircea_popescu: deedbot got !!, jhvh1 got !~ and further bots will get further of these until we run out and move on to #? etc.
phf: can i nuke all control sequences and have $s exclusively as an equivalent two character operation?
mircea_popescu: but...why ?
phf: well, i think that a111 has only one responsibility, and that's searching though log, whatever else is added is superfluous, but $s's been internalized by, among other people, asciilifeform. i'd rather not see "$s ... ??? ffs!"
