phf: only issue with the regrind approach is clerical. it's easy to keep track of "this new thing that i don't have", much harder to keep all the "this old thing that i have is now new thing" updates
mod6: shinohai: o7 thank, /you/, Sir.
phf: oh that was entirely unfair thing to do, apparently a111 wasn't in limbo, but it's happy sept to oct log rotation day
ben_vulpes: saturday the first of october, in which ben_vulpes (re?)discovers that bitcoin uses its own inane encoding scheme for addresses
shinohai: a111 is staging a October revolution perhaps
ben_vulpes: addrs have a bloody checksum; dafuq is this "human mistake amelioration" crap
ben_vulpes would dearly like to know how base58 is not another wart of pointless complexity
phf: heh, scalpl is now part of quicklisp
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes i like base 58 and the checksum. and i like the little metal flaps on wrong side of saw
ben_vulpes: mircea_popescu: what do you like about b58? the checksum should be all that's necessary, right?

ben_vulpes: asciilifeform: what'd have been wrong with b64?
ben_vulpes: o cool phf
ben_vulpes: shit
asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: confusable letters
ben_vulpes: i'm going to have to do it in ruby at this rate
asciilifeform: phf: spiffy
ben_vulpes: asciilifeform: the checksum should address that, no?
asciilifeform: phf: you have times in there. what was it running on?
asciilifeform: i ask because it does not appear to be substantially faster than the shell script..
asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: theoretically
phf: darwin lispworks 2.3 GHz Intel Core i7
asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: again, make whatever encoder you like, folks have done so in the past, e.g., the barcode thing
asciilifeform: phf: so ~=same as bash cpu cycle-wise!
asciilifeform: surreal.
shinohai: At least asciilifeform was kind enough to present this in bash
shinohai: Now I shall see parentheses in my sleep
phf: i suspect that the text marshaling that shell script does (as far as overhead over "pure c") is insubstantial compared to otherwise demanding and ~~cpu level sha256
shinohai: >>> ;;Great boobies honeybun, my lower intestine is full of spam
shinohai: xD
asciilifeform: phf: holy shit, 134MB!???
asciilifeform: for what??
phf: actually that time is totally random, because it involves reading privkey out of /dev/random
asciilifeform: fine, but the conses!?
asciilifeform: 134MB?
asciilifeform: wai.
phf: hmm, it's all ironclad's sha256. doing it with a dummy #(0 ...) digest drops it to 4.6mb
asciilifeform: waaaait
asciilifeform: why does computing sha2 cons at all??!
asciilifeform: it's a fucking constant space op
asciilifeform: this makes 0 sense.
asciilifeform: wtf is even ~in~ ironclad, i thought it called out to openssl in c ffi, or similar horror
asciilifeform: does the thing leak?
phf: no wai, ironclad is pure lisp

asciilifeform: could've sworn it had callouts.
asciilifeform: https://github.com/froydnj/ironclad/blob/master/src/digests/sha256.lisp << phf is right re current one
asciilifeform: yet there can be no excuse for it consing
asciilifeform: barbaric.
phf: ugh
phf: i suspect what's happening is that the convenience call in that i'm using is allocating digest support structs on each invocation
asciilifeform: also this was running on a box with iron rng?
asciilifeform: or why does phf's /dev/random work so well.
phf: we've had this thread, and i'm not going into that one again
asciilifeform: link?
asciilifeform: i ask because on any of my boxes with linux 3.x, i get maybe 1kB/minute from /dev/random unless i have rng plugged in.
phf: darwin's /dev/random is marginally slower than /dev/urandom, but then it's a closed source os, for all i know both feed directly from nsa headquarters
phf: though i think /dev/random is still in the opensourced parts of os
asciilifeform: would be interesting to learn how it worx
asciilifeform: which mac did phf use ?
phf: 10.9
phf: but! this was the extent of my free hacking time for this weekend. if there aren't any glaring bugs i might attempt to make it cons-free
asciilifeform: hmm i think i have an example of phf's selfsame mac here !
asciilifeform: will have to look into their rng at some point.
asciilifeform: phf: it is not imho important to optimize parachute for speed. lamportron per se is nearly the ultimate waste of cpu and space in crypto world ...
phf: pure as a lisp exercise
asciilifeform: anyway kudos to phf for actually solving this exercise
asciilifeform: now let's see other folk also !
shinohai: Imma stick to bash/perl
shinohai is not lispy enough
BingoBoingo: Imma stick to silk and needlepoint!
shinohai would like to see BingoBoingo's parachute cross-stitched
BingoBoingo: Not cross stitched. Needle point is for directing the silk worms as they spin parachute.
shinohai: The silkworms in this area are only capable of sha1, I need better worms.
shinohai: You can have them all tbh, they eat all the Mulberry trees and prevent me from harvesting great wines
BingoBoingo: See that's your problem. You gotta feed them better.
BingoBoingo: And by better I mean San Pedro cactus so they trip balls and naturally make parachute instead of cocoon
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes i like that there's no serif glyph powered ambiguity.

asciilifeform: gdb is sad though
asciilifeform: i have a gigantic collection of working and nonworking ones
asciilifeform: (the stock version is ~useless with mips, for instance)
asciilifeform: aaah and i almost forgot, there is another possible problem. if the box you plugged the serial cable into has pissed down the line, anything whatsoever, the ethernet interface will be confounded
asciilifeform: (thing is not built to be driven by two machines at 1ce)
asciilifeform: i recommend to - at first - use only the usb-serial hole.

asciilifeform: how do i verify that $chipdoc is not only correct but ~complete~, much less the ~original~..?
asciilifeform: or that it does not contain subtle lie (this is a problem with every single example extant, including the one linked earlier, they have subtle deviations from what the actual silicon does, we know this from YEARS of thankless sweat by various linux folk)
trinque: newer gdb worked great. I'll now write up my notes, did all this from openbsd.
trinque: only differences were /dev/cuaU0 and installing recent gdb
asciilifeform: heeeeeeeeere we go.
asciilifeform: congrats trinque !
trinque: ty very much for the pill, asciilifeform
asciilifeform: yw trinque .
asciilifeform: that pill was ~3 mo. of work, at one time.
