jhvh1: Framedragger: The operation succeeded.
mircea_popescu: Framedragger see, but there's a larger point here. i dunno if you followed the recent discussion re nirvana, but in any case : it is specificlaly NOT the intent of the republic to become popular.
mircea_popescu: the idea is for the republic to be imposed, preferably at the point of a sword, and painfully, VERY painfully, depersonalizingly painfully, to the common man.
mircea_popescu: we absolutely do not want for the common man to "see", in his own, common man terms, the "benefits" of the republic, and then "become part of it" and in the process start selling tmsr keychains at hot topic.
Framedragger: mircea_popescu: hmm. okay, i guess i get that this implies a wholly different approach.
mircea_popescu: the battle is for the elites and for the elites strictly. the common man is unwelcome in any capacity outside his physicality.
mircea_popescu: attempts to get the common man involved is how the various socialisms, be they hitler's or stalin's fail.
Framedragger: the http://btcbase.org/log/2016-11-18#1570169 will need to be addressed in due time then, i guess.☝︎
a111: Logged on 2016-11-18 21:57 mircea_popescu: anyway. the republic isn't poor. but it is very fucking difficult to get proper leverage applied.
mircea_popescu: because the common man consists principally of shit, and as something becomes "popular" it becomes shitty.
mircea_popescu: so no, i don't want joe q mschmucky to "understand" why if he fucks up his payment we keep the txn. or to accept it, or to think it's a good idea.
mircea_popescu: no, i want him to be as upset as he can muster about it ; and then still not actually manage to do anything about it.
mircea_popescu: that is the proper place of the common man : angry powerlessness.
Framedragger: (i wonder if there is a retribution/psychological component to this. but maybe not.)
mircea_popescu: there is - the common man is lazy. the only thing that can support his transition to actual human is the experience of furious impotence.
mircea_popescu: it does not work for all, of course. but if it didn't work it means there was nothing there.
Framedragger: strangely i can't object to this. ("spent too much time here"). yeah, ok.
mircea_popescu: right. because this isn't another lollapalooza or w/e.
mircea_popescu: "the republic isn't optional."
mircea_popescu: for the derps, it is mandatory because they are powerless ; and for the elite it is the only viable alternative (and thus also mandatory).
mircea_popescu: because hey, if you can... you must.
Framedragger: (also, if there was one tv series you may want to watch, it'd be "black mirror". i watched their "christmas special" ("white christmas") yesterday, and somehow on an emotional level it made me feel easier about not having much hope in the "populace". the smarter the technological tools that the populace gets to play with, the more they fuck themselves and others up.)
mircea_popescu adds to list.
Framedragger: i don't knot about the "*only*" viable alternative. you yourself mentioned some time ago that it's perfectly normal for other intelligent peeps to have their own WoT networks (which are not connected to tmsr WoT).
mircea_popescu: yes, and they are part of the republic. per definition.
Framedragger: (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/White_Christmas_(Black_Mirror) - episodes are disjoint in terms of narrative and actors, and are stand-alone.)
mircea_popescu: just because i'm influential doesn't mean i'm universal. a grass eating quadripede in south america is just as much a herbivore as the common horse, even if they never met.
Framedragger: hm. i guess i see that.
mircea_popescu: by and large, the notion that the common man may have a say in his usage / fate is coming to a close. it's some weird shit some dudes pulled out of their ass and then argued persuasively a few centuries ago, it was tried in a massive social experiment, and showed to not work in any conceivable implementation. to call this a trend reversal is to entirely miss that the alternative dominates millenia by the hundreds ; "humanism"
mircea_popescu: is nary a spec in this history and soon forgotten like bell bottoms and whatever other fashionable nonsense. 80s hair and 1790s sociopolitics.
mircea_popescu: as this realisation grips the masses, watch for the populist politicians display a turn of heart about the term "future".
mircea_popescu: the same dorks who were all happy with us electoral system up until nov 8th.
mircea_popescu: similarly "it's the way of the future" isn't going to make shiny happy people out of the populist party that used nothing but this all through 1800.
mircea_popescu: and NOW we shall come back to your http://btcbase.org/log/2016-11-19#1570510 : it's easy to misperceive that whatever, the republic, take it or leave it, in 2016. it's easy to think that hey, maybne i;ll make myself a computer that works, or maybe i won't, who cares. in 2016.☝︎

mircea_popescu: but the battle is on, and it's the battle for souls. once the door closes there's no redemption.
mircea_popescu: $1k was nothing in 2012 like it is today ; and would have done nothing more for me then than now. what i bought for it was pretty stupid, according to the experts of the time, and doomed to failure. a working computer is pretty stupid, according to the experts of 2016, and obviously doomed to "it can't work".
mircea_popescu: the common man is made out of bad choices, informed by his laziness.
Framedragger: a working computer *may* just not be available in the future, i do believe that fully. not to go all cliche dystopian, but neural implants based on Secure Microsoft Quantum Encryption(R) and the likes may be what people use to "compute" in the future
Framedragger: and if that happens, we will have but our laziness to blame.
Framedragger: so, yeah.

mircea_popescu: Framedragger the whole "oh, microsoft secure implants" is really just so much narcissism. as the raped girl angrily if unsuccessfully points out ( http://trilema.com/2013/the-dead-jew-and-the-raped-girl/ ), the peasants could at any point not have been peasants. "could". the pretense that "couldn't" is exactly what kept them in line them, and it's the source of this "secure implants bla bla" wet dream.
mircea_popescu: reality never worked that way to date.
mircea_popescu: no, it simply will be "nobody knows how to turn it on without the talking paperclip, and they can't muster the energy to try and find out". that's it. what, you think argentines fail because they're not connected to the same internet we are ? they're connected, i'm living proof. but to them, it's all netflix.

Framedragger: yeah.
Framedragger: mircea_popescu: i plan to set up a "phuctor results investigation dashboard". (iirc trinque or someone planned to do sth of the kind, but since this overlaps with the "check distinct banner amounts etc", i may as well do it properly). nothing fancy so as to keep it actually deliverable, but i have a plan.
Framedragger: i was wondering, would S.SNA (or whatever entity) be able to pay for a VPS? 9.6 EUR / mo., payment monthly, my VPS accepts bitcoin.
mircea_popescu: how about you apply for a grant to the foundation and i lean on ben_vulpes / mod6 to approve it ?
Framedragger: (if not, i still want to do it, so will prolly still do it.)
Framedragger: nice, sounds like a proper process.
Framedragger: mircea_popescu: mkay will do.
mircea_popescu: you need what, .15 btc for a year ?
mircea_popescu: also : mkay is resistive okay. not what you mean here amirite ?

Framedragger: oh shit :D
Framedragger: mircea_popescu: okay.
Framedragger: not at all.
mircea_popescu: alrighty, you write the application, make it short and to the point.
Framedragger: okay
mircea_popescu: then once approved someone can write a qntra piece about the whole thing and lo and behold, crony republicanism!
Framedragger: elite insiders 1%!!!
Framedragger: (also, my initial plan was to ask for a month as i can't predict with absolute certainty actual resource requirements. but i think i have a decent picture of what's needed.)
mircea_popescu: won't be worth anyone's time to dick around with monthlies
Framedragger: sure.
Framedragger: also, i take it S.BISP is not currently offering services? :)
mircea_popescu: kinda deals in whole boxes, you know.
Framedragger: yeah, that i know. well, it's not needed for now, so, ok
mircea_popescu doesn't believe in this whole virtualization thing as implemented by cloud/vps/etc. the only virtualization that makes sense to me is via teh uci.
mircea_popescu: but that infrastructure's not yet ready
Framedragger: it's nice to be able to have a virtual box for cheapsies - can be migrated to bare metal when the time comes.

Framedragger: i see that http://thebitcoin.foundation/tickets/UCI_tickets.html doesn't have an 'owner' field - can sometimes be a useful thing, no?
mircea_popescu: no argument.
mircea_popescu: Framedragger could be, and mod6 is also working on making private ticket trees and other things
Framedragger: cool stuff.
mircea_popescu: it is quite possible mod6 's ticket infrastructure eventually turns into the hiring interface we were discussing yest.
Framedragger: wouldn't that be something :)
Framedragger: mircea_popescu: asking for advice - should i include a note that should additional hosting resources be needed during the 12 month period, an additional grant (it'd include supporting data of course) may be sought? just to be transparent?
Framedragger: (transparent about the fact that hosting resource expectations are preliminary.)
mircea_popescu: not really the place to discuss contingencies i dun think.
Framedragger: sure, ok.
mircea_popescu: slippery slope, "and iof the internet runs away i'll try and run after it, and if it rains i;ll wear umbrellas and..."
mircea_popescu: grantwriting is in desperate need of reform.
mircea_popescu: should be judged on terseness not on bureaucratic notions of value ("it's long! and full of platitudes! let's count the platitudes!")
Framedragger: mircea_popescu: plox to review: http://wotpaste.cascadianhacker.com/pastes/nz8wn/?raw=true
mircea_popescu: lol k
mircea_popescu: not terrible, has all the needed parts except "which shall provide a platform for those interested in analysing RSA keys and the surrounding metadata collected and provided by Phuctor" could benefit from (such as : by x, and y, and z) as it's currently not even vaguely clear what i could do on that platform.
Framedragger: okay - i wanted not to over-commit, but this is indeed pretty damn vague. will think and amend.
mircea_popescu: for starters, explain it to me. so what do i do there ?
asciilifeform: Framedragger: let me know what, if anything, you need on my end. but i must warn, querying the db is ruinously slow.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform ideally he gets the phucked page once and then follows rss.
mircea_popescu: much to ben_vulpes 's chagrin.
asciilifeform: the rss skipped 100s of keys not long ago.
asciilifeform: www is shit soup.
mircea_popescu is amused how the collection of crap pisses off someone particularly. dns, rss, if it ends in s it's shit.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform suppose he reloads the phucked page every time he gets a rss feed which doesn't include items he already has.
asciilifeform: then.
Framedragger: there would be, as per my current plan, two 'portals'. one would expose the db (postgres). current plan: ths would use phppgadmin. it's maintained and stable. user would make use of a read-only db role. so you could run sql queries on the whole thing. "whole thing" = sql schema which
Framedragger: hosts the phuctor data - p, q, e - and metadata - including country codes from geoip where applicable.
asciilifeform: it isn't whole bag though - i had to make manual sql queries, and wait quite a while, to get the stats for the recent qntra piece
asciilifeform: the info re ~unphuctored~ moduli, or relationship b/w moduli and keys, is not in the 'phuctored' page naturally
mircea_popescu: Framedragger what db ?
Framedragger: second 'portal' would be more simplistic and would, first off, be a simple way for me to present some non-gimmicky visualizations, e.g. what asciilifeform suggested some months ago.
asciilifeform: Framedragger: if i put even slightly more load on db, site will grind to a halt
mircea_popescu: so hm
Framedragger: mircea_popescu: by db i mean a postgresql populated with phuctor data.
Framedragger: ah - i wasn't clear. db would live on this VPS.
Framedragger: it wouldn't proxy to phuctor server
mircea_popescu: so you want to pipe data from phuctor to a vps, and display it there ?
asciilifeform: Framedragger: where do you intend to get the data though
Framedragger: i'm unclear what to do with 'live data feed', but i don't think it's a problem. it could just sync with phuctor at timed intervals.
Framedragger: mircea_popescu: yes, if by pipe you mean, bulk-import into VPS, not torture phuctor's own db 24/7.
mircea_popescu: the part i don't follow is where isn't this a waste of your time ? you seem to be trying to do something akin to "i will create a gui atop this command line". ok... how will you guess aforehand what buttons people want to push ?
Framedragger: mircea_popescu: the first 'portal' would allow users to run read-only sql queries.
mircea_popescu: but grep already allows me to do this
Framedragger: so there would be no decision making needed as regards user friendliness / abstract buttons
Framedragger: mhm.
mircea_popescu: so if grep already allows me to do this... what are you doing ?
asciilifeform mostly uses grep, sed, to read phucked keys
mircea_popescu: me2.
mircea_popescu: well awk but w/e.
Framedragger: well, you wanted to run, say, DISTINCT on banners. it sure would be great to do it in a non-hacky way, and for others to allow to do the same, no?
mircea_popescu: but banners aren't on phuctor page are they ?
Framedragger: again i screwed up re. phrasing. i'd import the banners from the data i have.
asciilifeform: i got a thing that curls http://.....phucked and goes , nmap, fetches ssl certs if 445, etc
mircea_popescu: ok so you aim to take some data from phuctor, integrate it with some data you already have, and perhaps with other data you can obtain, and present it conveniently ?
Framedragger: i suppose a more simplistic thing to do would be for me to fish out those banners, convert into decent format if needed, and to give to whoever wants :)
mircea_popescu: this, as an evolutionary superset of "i'll just dump a db of banners and you're more than welcome to match yourselves" ?
Framedragger: mircea_popescu: yes
mircea_popescu: so like this it makes sense
asciilifeform: really the banners ought to be in phuctor db
mircea_popescu: i dun wanna have to resolve record matching every time i want to query the joint set.
mircea_popescu: see ? gotta make sense!
Framedragger: asciilifeform: i know - i hope to have time next Wed to look into this
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform if you want to integrate it there. and next week someone observes really Y thing should also be and you're unbound.
mircea_popescu: dja feel mentally flexible enough to deal with that ?
Framedragger: i mean, tbh i should give asciilifeform those banners. VPS DB idea can wait.
mircea_popescu is not against either approach.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: not really. nothing stops phuctor from displaying ' on date X' and ' on date Y' as separate keys etc
mircea_popescu: well up to you, it's your shitsoup.
asciilifeform: and 'Notes' field can include whatever.
mircea_popescu: yeah but by now it includes so much we actually wnat to structure it ;/
asciilifeform: which is why i realized that i am doomed to rewrite it yearly...
mircea_popescu: heh
mircea_popescu: that's how it starts you know.
Framedragger: i guess another thing is, it would be nice for #trilema folx to be able to test their own phuctor-related hypotheses without having to download all the data. but, it's not as if it's exabytes of data or anything...
asciilifeform: Framedragger: probably thing to do will be periodic dumps
mircea_popescu: Framedragger ok but if one actually wants to sql on it, dumping it in a table isn't much work.
mircea_popescu: often though i'm happy with just a bash. i think like once i actually wanted sql syntax
mircea_popescu: and then was too lazy and bashed it anyway.
Framedragger: that's true! this wouldn't be anything amazeballs.
mircea_popescu: Framedragger if you wanna do data visualisations, the thing to do is the wot explorer. that i actually miss.
Framedragger: hmm, there is that, too.
asciilifeform: when i reopen the thing ( which is definitely not now, i am sweating now over a long-behindschedule unrelated item coauthored with mircea_popescu ) it will be to speed up the key eater
mircea_popescu subscribes to this view.
Framedragger: okay, i'll sit on it, meanwhile have $afk stuff to do, and i'll update next week re. what i'd like to work on, if anything.

Framedragger: still, the permalink-able key pages can be cached and/or served from somewhere else, no?
pete_dushenski: mats: do you see the appeal in the whole autonomous driving thing ? it strikes me as appealing to the same neophilic and inconsiderate mind that wanted to vote shillary in simply because she's a woman and WOULDN'T THAT BE GREAT, not because the consequences had any bearing on the decision making process. frankly the idea that sv-shitware was in total control of my vehicle is frightening. that many millions
pete_dushenski: of lines of code and that many chinese sensors ~will~ fail at some point. and it will be unexpectedly. and catastrophically.
mod6: Framedragger: black mirror is pretty good -- im halfway through the latest series.
Framedragger: word! :)
asciilifeform: Framedragger: fuck lot of good caching does if the links break.
asciilifeform: (from, e.g., qntra.)
asciilifeform: enemy's whole objective was 'make 0 come up when folx click the link'
asciilifeform: it was achieved.
asciilifeform: usg.dns does not give this 'serve from somewhere else.' deliberately.
asciilifeform: qntra incidentally also loads very, very slowly from here.
asciilifeform: (but -- loads.)
Framedragger: asciilifeform: by links break you mean that they are unreachable for extended periods of time? but boxes with cached static content can be armoured against ddos more, no? i guess unless you maintain that this is indeed syn flood or equivalent, which is agnostic to whether content up the stack is dynamic or sttaic...
asciilifeform: it's a syn flood.
asciilifeform: the trb node just as dead.
Framedragger: ah.
asciilifeform: the 24/7 ssh pipe i had to the box on dedicated display - also dead.
Framedragger: ah right, whole box unreachable, not just http.
asciilifeform: Framedragger: it is unreachable WHEN IT COUNTS
asciilifeform: i wrote, in the qntra piece, 'examine debianized boxes for nsaware'. now 'owner' will have a chance to clean up before any mass 'examination' takes place.
Framedragger: i hear you, examining them ourselves (in some automated fashion or w/e) would have been prudent. "trust the public to do it", uh :/
asciilifeform: ('but,' , said my internal mircea_popescutron, 'nobody had the slightest inclination to examine anything!' -- but this is besides the point)
mod6: <+mircea_popescu> Framedragger if you wanna do data visualisations, the thing to do is the wot explorer. that i actually miss. << me too.
mod6: Framedragger: point taken about 'owner' on tickets. I considered adding a 'assignee' or 'owner' for a given ticket(s), but with the narrow view of the first project (trb), i didn't want to discourage people from thinking about solutions for a given problem just because it had my name on it or something.
mod6: Anyway, now that it seems that private a more rich ticketing system is wanted, these things can be considered for sure. Salud!
mats: pete_dushenski: i'm mostly interested in semiautonomous hacks
mats: luxury models commonly ship with park assist and collision avoidance
asciilifeform: mats: familiar with idea of 'risk homeostasis' ?
mats: as well as stability and adaptive cruise control
Framedragger: mod6: sure! maybe "assignee" would have the desired (lesser) connotation, i don't know. coming from some trac feature/bug tracking in distributed teams experience, 'owner' is there interpreted as simply 'person who is ultimately responsible for implementing/fixing this', with other collaborators invited and acknowledged
Framedragger: but yeah, sounds good :)
mats: so, remote steering + acceleration
mats: asciilifeform: first i've heard of it
mod6: Framedragger: aha. yeah, in my experience with ticketing systems ala scrum, it's my observation that if a ticket is "assigned or owned by Jeff, I don't even think twice about it."
Framedragger: fair 'nuff. guess it depends on agreed-upon processes and overall mindsets of team, and so on...
mod6: So I wanted to avoid that. But going forward, I think that'll just some sort of optional field or whatnot. I'm excited to put some work into that as soon as I can here.
Framedragger: mod6: regarding visualizations, i'm just curious, did you have something particular in mind, as in, how do the svg visualizations at http://www.btcalpha.com/wot/trust/?from=mod6&to=mircea_popescu and http://www.btcalpha.com/wot/user/mod6/ look to the eye?
Framedragger: i suppose the idea could be to re-implement that, but using deedbot's view of WoT, and add additional things as desired.
Framedragger: asciilifeform: at least with public-static and phuctor boxes being separate, you'd have access to the latter if it were private. (but i guess you could object with "private/undisclosed box on the internet, what is this oxymoron!")
Framedragger: re. visualization, i like stuff like this (mouse over on labels around the circle), but it's a hella lot of JS, and i share the hate towards the latter: http://bl.ocks.org/mbostock/7607999 - what's nice about btcalpha visualization is that it uses by-now standard html5 canvas directives (<path>) with no need for JS.
ben_vulpes: Framedragger: if you go down the 'phuctor visualizer/dash' route, you might consider leaning on pg streaming replication
ben_vulpes: phf: may be able to chime in on how much load that'd add to the db process but i don't think much
Framedragger: ben_vulpes: oh hmm, i've never used it, very interesting and thanks for the pointer
ben_vulpes: wot browser somewhat higher priority though
Framedragger: note to self/logs, check https://wiki.postgresql.org/wiki/Streaming_Replication
mats: many affordable non-luxury cars today ship with front and rear-view wide multi-angle cameras
mats: i wonder what a limited remote steering package on a toyota camry is worth
asciilifeform: http://btcbase.org/log/2016-11-19#1570743 << i have, as you can surmise, own comp, that still works☝︎
a111: Logged on 2016-11-19 16:52 Framedragger: asciilifeform: at least with public-static and phuctor boxes being separate, you'd have access to the latter if it were private. (but i guess you could object with "private/undisclosed box on the internet, what is this oxymoron!")
trinque: Framedragger: ben_vulpes: it probably makes the most sense for me to do the WoT browser
trinque: anyone else is going to have stale data
Framedragger: regarding visualization, a more condensed question: if a javascript-using thing were delivered, would this be hated upon (and berated by asciilifeform) and accepted if otherwise good and properly maintained, or hated upon and dismissed (and berated by asciilifeform)? :)
mats: i imagine this'd have a lot of applications in, ie, mosul, raqqa, and more modern battlefields of the future
asciilifeform: but it is neither here nor there, the server - falls down whenever enemy wants it to fall down.
Framedragger: asciilifeform: right. :)
Framedragger: trinque: sounds good to me, fwiw!
trinque: alright I'll take that and you can focus on phuctor viz
ben_vulpes: Framedragger: just deliver svgs, eh?
Framedragger: trinque: fine with me
ben_vulpes: even mike_c-'s thing only used js to populate the typeahead iirc
asciilifeform: i utterly do not see , i confess, why phuctor needs 'visualizations' etc
Framedragger: and yeah, i guess one should go with svgs, mike_c used <path> and it was fine
asciilifeform: it needs a key eater that doesn't saturate the db capacity 24/7 -- yes. a server that doesn't fall down when washington farts on it -- also yes. 'js visualizations' ??
Framedragger: asciilifeform: well, less so visualizations than easy ways to query and analyse data. but, i agree with mircea_popescu and yourself that concrete merits are to be discussed. maybe it's not needed.
Framedragger: i mentioned js in relation to WoT as it's more applicable there (lots of ready-made libraries for discrete graph visualizations and so on)
ben_vulpes: i too would like more detail in re 'shall provide a platform for those interested in analysing RSA keys'
asciilifeform: the most i can offer to anyone is a static copy of the db. and that is supposing that the box comes back up, and stays up.
trinque: ^ right way to analyze data
asciilifeform: (backups are a monthly affair, any more often would -- again -- grind whole thing to a screeching halt)
ben_vulpes: 'read only sql users to a replica of the phuctor db' is, while an interesting project, not wanted by the people doing most of the analysis afaict
asciilifeform: i cannot offer anything REMOTELY resembling real-time replication, either.
asciilifeform: db is under ~constant ~100% load as-is.
asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: the main thing wanted by 'people doing most of the analysis' is a BOX THAT STAYS UP
ben_vulpes: replication works on the wal, not on the committed db, and so i don't think it would have the load impact you do.
ben_vulpes: nevertheless, academic.
asciilifeform: which seems to be beyond the current technological state of the art.
asciilifeform: at any price point
ben_vulpes: and i want a mig
asciilifeform: mig -- actually exists...
asciilifeform: box that stays up - different matter.
asciilifeform: them who want mig -- are the lucky'uns. all ya need is a bag of money this-wide and this-tall, and here's yer mig.
asciilifeform: box that stays up - likely, needs new internet.
ben_vulpes: just don't connect it to the internet, what
asciilifeform: then it ain't 'box'
ben_vulpes: oho it isn't now
asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: heathen-facing publicationtron is inherently contradictory thing .
Framedragger: ben_vulpes: i'll think about this next week. it may be that it's not really needed, yeah - i agree. and integration of things such as ssh server banners with phuctor keys is something that asciilifeform said he'd be up to do on phuctor's db itself..
asciilifeform: Framedragger: all of this is quite academic if thing cannot be made to reliably stay up.
ben_vulpes: Framedragger: i am also curious to know what kind of requirements you have for a vps that your current loggotron doesn't serve.
asciilifeform: (and , for folks with poor reading comprehension, i will repeat - entire box is ~unreachable, trb node, ssh, 80, etc )
ben_vulpes off for a while
mod6: Framedragger: so with regard of the wotperson to wotperson (http://www.btcalpha.com/wot/trust/?from=mod6&to=mircea_popescu) and all ratings to wotperson (http://www.btcalpha.com/wot/user/mod6/); I think we liked those very much as they were. Of course any sort of improvements could be added if they make sense, etc.
mod6: Framedragger: I do like this graph for sure, http://bl.ocks.org/mbostock/7607999
mod6: I think the idea would be to get back to some sort of analog of what mike_c had in place. And then add improvments as necessary.
mod6: This would be a really great project to work on, we're long overdue to get this working with deedbot, etc.
mod6: <+trinque> Framedragger: ben_vulpes: it probably makes the most sense for me to do the WoT browser << perhaps. i'd be up for anything really at this point.
mod6: <+Framedragger> trinque: fine with me << settled then?
trinque: that was me saying I'll do it.
trinque: hacking on it now actually, maybe have something up in a week
mod6: werd
mod6: thanks trinque

mircea_popescu: 31 packets transmitted, 31 received, 0% packet loss, time 30040ms < you actually can't ping it ?
asciilifeform: can ping, 150ms or so, but that's all.
mircea_popescu: well... so you want me to what, datacenter reboot ?
asciilifeform: 1st ask'em 'wtf'
mircea_popescu: i can tell you what wtf right now : learn not to overload box.
asciilifeform: it wasn't overloaded.
asciilifeform: dollars to doughnuts thing is under syn flood.
mircea_popescu: weren't you just saying it's barely standing ?
asciilifeform: the db!
mircea_popescu engages in this exercise.
asciilifeform: the box per se is ultra-responsive, even when 'werker' is firing (i leave a core open)
Framedragger: http://btcbase.org/log/2016-11-19#1570801 << just to confirm that this was trinque saying he'd be up for doing it, and yeah sounds good :)☝︎

Framedragger: mircea_popescu: (syn flood suspicion because sockets don't respond with anything, even when possible to establish tcp connection. and yes ping does seem to work.)
Framedragger: http://btcbase.org/log/2016-11-19#1570793 << current loggotron also runs on vps, and in itself it requires very few resources. no db use, even. at this point there's a bunch of stuff and other people's sites running on that vps, i don't feel comfortable adding additional load.☝︎
a111: Logged on 2016-11-19 17:18 ben_vulpes: Framedragger: i am also curious to know what kind of requirements you have for a vps that your current loggotron doesn't serve.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform the wisdom of having the data in a cheap vps is becomingf ever more apparent.
Framedragger: because 1) other sites' experience may be impacted, and 2) phuctor db would place some load on things. why = because i'd create a few indices, those would hog some memory, and assuming users want to do quite a bit of sorting etc, would take some cpu time as well. just sayin'. nothing scientific.
Framedragger: (by other people's sites i mean sites that i'm responsible for.)
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: cheap vps will fall down just as readily when flooded (as will the trb node, mine or anybody's)
asciilifeform: i will point out that, unless the box has been stolen, it is still processing keys at same rate
asciilifeform: (needs 0 net pipe for this)
mircea_popescu: yes, but much easier to a) have a lot b) move around
asciilifeform: this, yes.
Framedragger: i concur ^
mircea_popescu: yes, but there are two concerns that are separable : a) flood stops processing and b) flood stops display.
mircea_popescu: phuctor wasn't ever so snappy on display even when it was accessible.
asciilifeform: i dun think anything short of unplugging the box will stop processing.
Framedragger: to the point of having a ready-made system image (no, does not imply need to use docker), deployable at vps center in a matter of minutes.
mircea_popescu: and the ONLY thing that interests the shitgnomes is display.
mircea_popescu: they really couldn't, and didn't, give a shit about phuctor working throughout the years it worked.
mircea_popescu: what hurts is you know, omfg, PEOPLE CAN READ!!1
mircea_popescu: hillary clinton is not worried about raping brown babies.
mircea_popescu: she just doesn't want anyone to see it is all.
asciilifeform: but yes, mircea_popescu is quite right re 'ought to cut'em apart'
Framedragger: mircea_popescu: display/processing separation is why i mentioned http://btcbase.org/log/2016-11-19#1570743☝︎
a111: Logged on 2016-11-19 16:52 Framedragger: asciilifeform: at least with public-static and phuctor boxes being separate, you'd have access to the latter if it were private. (but i guess you could object with "private/undisclosed box on the internet, what is this oxymoron!")
asciilifeform: the 1 minus is that the -- already quite costly apparatus -- would cost yet moar.
mircea_popescu: in a sense it is "social responsibility", ie, "the data was provided, what did republic do with it".
mircea_popescu: Framedragger i've not yet got through the log because parsing threw exception on that line i quoted :D
Framedragger: fuck...
mircea_popescu: nono i was being metaphorical. exception in my head.
Framedragger: ah
Framedragger: stack explosion, ya
Framedragger: asciilifeform: wouldn't be sure re. costs. vps can be $5/$10 a month, and stuff i used for ssh key crawling (scaleway) can bill hourly
Framedragger: , too.
asciilifeform: Framedragger: db would have to exist locally on the vps, for the thing to work more or less reasonably in real time
asciilifeform: that's a few dozen GB.
Framedragger: i'm not saying that going for cheapest ad-hoc option is accetabru. just, a display box showing static content needs much less.
asciilifeform: likewise bandwidth, considerably.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform he just wants the popped stuff.
Framedragger: i don't know why you need true real time, tbh.
mircea_popescu: which is k of records * 10kb or such, not the end of world.
Framedragger: even if more than that - all of that shit can be cached, static html pages. maybe i'm oversimplifying.
asciilifeform: 'just popped' means that you can no longer use it, as previously suggested, in place of sks, for instance.
asciilifeform: but yes, 'phuctored.html' is a few MB currently.
mircea_popescu: aha.
Framedragger: have a way (rss or better version of rss, or whatever) to sync it every $n hours.
mircea_popescu: http://btcbase.org/log/2016-11-19#1570692 << lol if so, more work needed.☝︎

asciilifeform: though then you want to see the unpopped subkey siblings of the popped moduli, and start clicking, and you'll get zip.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform no, those link back to phuctor.
mircea_popescu: it is html after all.
asciilifeform: well yes, but each one is own page
mircea_popescu: so ?
asciilifeform: currently they are generated programmatically. will have to rebake whole thing such that they exist as static texts on disk.
Framedragger: those sibling pages, why can't they hit once, and html be generated, too.
mircea_popescu: any collection of data will have to consist of references to other sources at the edges
Framedragger: or, caching server makes hits itself, and generates html.
asciilifeform: i really ought to have made entire thing a c proggy that shits out static html once in a while.
mircea_popescu: like hourly or such, could work yea.
asciilifeform: probably how www will work, if it at all even works, in near future.
Framedragger: and then imagine, deploying 'display' vps would become simpler still.
Framedragger: with regards to vps i could help, if help/hands are needed. i know you have other priority stuff asciilifeform. also, don't know what the meta-priority level here is. (i.e., compared to other projects etc)
Framedragger: like, scripting vps deployment etc
Framedragger: a couple of vps providers i used have nice APIs
Framedragger: for deploying and so on.
asciilifeform: Framedragger: dunno if you read the broadcasts, but we have an actual product rolling off conveyor as we speak.
asciilifeform: as in , physical device.
Framedragger: i've read, i am doubly interested due to vagueness of said broadcasts :p
Framedragger: very interesting indeed!
mircea_popescu: in other wtf : all https://archive.is/http://phuctor.nosuchlabs.com/phuctored are from the same one day in may ; while all https://archive.is/http://phuctor.nosuchlabs.com/ are from the same one day i nseptember.
asciilifeform: my hands presently are quite full with polishing off the prospectus for said item, and www page / invoicetron.
mircea_popescu: this is pretty retarded.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: there is an independent snapshot on my blog, also. but also a month old.
Framedragger: no doubt that's priority asciilifeform, and will patiently wait
asciilifeform: http://www.loper-os.org/pub/snap/ph_snap.html
asciilifeform: fri. sept. 23.
mircea_popescu: heh
mircea_popescu: and all-phyuctor snapshots are like this : 1 from nov 14. three from nov 3 . two from nov 1.
mircea_popescu: fucking worthless, really, there's a total of SIX links to phuctor that went in chan this month ?
mircea_popescu: i.... think not.
asciilifeform: i dunno that anyone other than google and yandex ever made a ~full phuctor~ snapshot.
asciilifeform: (pretty sure these 2 did. slowly, painfully.)
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform we have a bot run by peterl which supposedly snapshots EVERY LINK IN CHAN
Framedragger: asciilifeform: (instead of doing a more obscure "query-able phuctor-and-stuff db" thing i could help with some kind of phuctor-public-display-vps infrastructure setup. just sayin'. thing's not clear in my head.)
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: for quite some time, the rss thing did not display clickable links in chan for phuctor due to overflow
asciilifeform: (and then , in debian run, the rss feeder itself overflowed )
mircea_popescu: a damn that's also there.
Framedragger: mircea_popescu: just fyi archive.is fails and/or timeouts on some pages
asciilifeform: Framedragger: the fundamental problem is that i will have to rewrite WHOLE THING for any of this to possibly happen.
asciilifeform: and reprocess ENTIRE db.
Framedragger: that's the question - will you have to actually do that.
asciilifeform: the answer is 100% yes.

Framedragger: that would indeed be nontrivial and would take quite a bit of your time
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: that would make problem even worse, could no longer search logs for a gpg fp
mircea_popescu: yes you can, by that format.
asciilifeform: but not raw.
mircea_popescu: you can't search worth a shit right now because overflow.
asciilifeform: true, as of this week.
mircea_popescu: ie, you don't get to see ip or link. which /.... so search, what's it do.
Framedragger: asciilifeform: why can't a separate box be set up to just crawl through all of phuctor pages, and then determine which of them are 'static' / won't ever change, for starters. and re-query the dynamic ones (at least the /phuctored) every $x amount of time
asciilifeform: Framedragger: because at its current speed this will take you 50 years.
Framedragger: for seriously you guys.
mircea_popescu: no, not rss overflow. line overflow.
mircea_popescu: if you have a fp or w.e and wanna see go to phuctor.
mircea_popescu: Framedragger your scriba could crawl all links in chan and archive them. phf said a while back he almost has this but i've yet to see it
Framedragger: asciilifeform: and the permalink pages identifiable via fingerprint, are they generated by the flask backend, too?
asciilifeform: Framedragger: understand, EVERY page in phuctor is subject to change
mircea_popescu: and if there's to there's no loss.
asciilifeform: Framedragger: it is called phuctoring
mircea_popescu: we fucking need this archival of links in chan, like years ago.
asciilifeform: ^
Framedragger: (i thought someone was supposed to retroactively archive all links in all logs of all times?)
mircea_popescu: that someone utterly failed at that task, as push coming to shove proves.
Framedragger: mircea_popescu: right, will get it done. i had started on it, got sidetracked by the python encoding problem, and the got sidetracked by other stuff. need to re-trace, and will first do the archival bit.
Framedragger: by 'it', i mean scriba submitting to archive.is
Framedragger: all links it newly sees.
mircea_popescu: or saving copies locally, or whatever.
Framedragger: yeah.
mircea_popescu: ~what you were planning to do above.
Framedragger: (again, many phuctor pages will simply timeout, iirc. but maybe can adjust; and still worth doing.)
mircea_popescu is pretty fucking annoyed that the MOMENT the slightest disturbance in the force occurs, we suddenly discover there was really 0 defense in depth.
mircea_popescu: "oh maybe i have a page from 2005 somewhere"
mircea_popescu: yay for the home team!
asciilifeform: this was my reaction also.
mircea_popescu: "oh it's on phuctor and why do i need to do anything", which is how we got "those debian experts are flyeyeing the code so why should i have a clue".
Framedragger: asciilifeform: have you profiled an http request to a permalinkable phuctor page? where's the bottleneck? curious if you could insert a thing into flask which crawls through everything and stores locally.
asciilifeform: and, to continue to rain on the parade, if every www site has to be run like mpex, it will cost. and the range of things that can be provided 'for the public', 'for phreeee', will correspondingly shrink.
asciilifeform: Framedragger: db being hammered 24/7 with 'do we have this hash' 'do we have this fp' 'add this and this' 1000/sec is the bottle.
asciilifeform: and there is ~0 way around it , other than by doing the static thing.
Framedragger: asciilifeform: http://btcbase.org/log/2016-11-19#1570745 may be worth a try, actually.☝︎

Framedragger: quite sure the diff'ing / updates were thought out thoroughly, i.e. time complexity is constant.
Framedragger: there's a slave/clone db, it gets updates efficiently from master.
asciilifeform: Framedragger: you do not seem to understand, so i will give illustration: http://www.swapmeetdave.com/Humor/Workshop/Lumber-Car-A.jpg
asciilifeform: ^ is the db
Framedragger: :D
asciilifeform: we are at the farthest possibly limit of what can be done on one box, at anything like reasonable budget (whether paying the cost of a small european flat for a server for public service is 'reasonable' is separate question)
asciilifeform: *possible
Framedragger: extracting rows identifiable by 'id > $num' also becomes super slow?
asciilifeform: understand, if phuctor were an american 'corporate' production, it would make use of at least entire RACK of boxes
asciilifeform: Framedragger: TOUCHING THE DB AT ALL IS SLOW
asciilifeform: understand ?
asciilifeform: if you want anything from the db, you wait. for , possibly, HALF A MINUTE
asciilifeform: because, for instance, the key-eater is a separate process. and has nfi that someone else wants the db.
Framedragger: i have no doubt that a sillicon valley version would be a datacentre of mongodb nodes which constantly fail and corrupt data, and cost millions. :)
asciilifeform: try to apprehend the scale of the thing.
asciilifeform: it is not a wordpress blog with ~static 5 mil words.
asciilifeform: it is a db of ~5 mil KEYS, each of which is from 1 to 20kB, and links, etc.
asciilifeform: and moduli, stored separately, linked bidirectionally to/from keys, ditto factors for same.
Framedragger: i'm sorry but you didn't convince me in regards to the 'amount' of data. > 100mil row postgres with > 100 gb of data in a 8GB ram server ran fine. and while phuctor may be a more demanding beast, shouting '5 mil keys, MILLION!' doesn't convince
asciilifeform: whenever ANYTHING is added , it first has to be searched for in each of these classes of item, in the case that it may already exist there.
asciilifeform: Framedragger: it is doubtless possible to optimize .
Framedragger: yes, the latter is super demanding
asciilifeform: but not effortlessly.
asciilifeform: and not without rewriting entire thing.
Framedragger: no argument in relation to effort needed!
Framedragger: i'm thinking whether it'd be worth it to just have a static replica of db-as-it-currently-is, for now. as in for "i want to touch data, there's an outdated html file on loper-os i guess?" cases.
Framedragger: stop web app and other stuff, copy /var/lib/pgsql/data, start web app again, use data to set up separate db.
asciilifeform: Framedragger: you are welcome to a copy of db as soon as i get my hands on it again
asciilifeform: but please do not expect anything like regular update
Framedragger: asciilifeform: of course. and also don't treat this as high priority, i prolly wont look at it before wednesday anyway. but would be interesting to take a look - and i'd take a look
asciilifeform: supposing i even see it again.
Framedragger: :/
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform "process fastwerker is killing the box, would you like reboot"
asciilifeform: lying liars.
mircea_popescu: and unless maz actuallty reads the logs instead of doing his work, I TOLD YOU SO
mircea_popescu: get out of here. how do you propose came up with name ?
asciilifeform: i have nfi. but process runs reniced.
Framedragger: (how can they even see the name? kvm? i thought it was baremetal?)
asciilifeform: i'd like to know!
asciilifeform: and what else they've been lying about.
mircea_popescu: Framedragger kvm.
asciilifeform: ( i certainly do not recall giving the monkey an account on the box )
mircea_popescu: dude... renice works half the time.
mircea_popescu: it's not like it offers some sort of hard guarantees.
asciilifeform: understand, thing has gone like clockwork for ~year now.
mircea_popescu: so ?
mircea_popescu: it's a fucking computer.
mircea_popescu: anyway, make a call, do i have it rebooted or let it be for a while and see if it digs itself back out ?
mircea_popescu: such pdp-10 problems we're having in 2016.
asciilifeform: also i will add, 'werker' saturates 15/16 cores for 20 MINUTES of any given runtime.
mircea_popescu: apparently - not.
asciilifeform: so this story (and how the fuck does the monkey know process name ?) holds 0 water.
mircea_popescu: also at issue is something called "fastwerker". that the same thing ?
asciilifeform: yes, in fact it is.
mircea_popescu: alright.
Framedragger: cputime per process logging may help to settle this for future cases :p
mircea_popescu: ip-kvm will show you a sort of top.
asciilifeform: but i dunno that anyone other than mircea_popescu had any business knowing that the process were called.
asciilifeform: ip-kvm will show only to folks who have login on the box.
mircea_popescu: well, until you insisted i ask, nobody did. once i ask, they gotta do specific things.
mircea_popescu: ...
mircea_popescu: sometimes i wonder how you think computers work.
mircea_popescu: it's a fucking admin interface bridged into the fucking bus, what the everloving shit would it care about your derpy os's notions of "users". as if those fucking EVEN WORK irl.
mircea_popescu: bejaysus.
asciilifeform: how would mircea_popescu react if one of his gurlz misplaced her undies, and his landlord came and said where they were ?
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform in point of fact i have asked the public force to locate car drunk ho abandoned "dunno where". they did. i didn't throw a shitfit about "o noes surveillance state". this because a) i asked them to do it and b) obviously they just put the number in the stolen cars interface and then a patrol saw it.
mircea_popescu: now stop thrashing about, write better code in general and make the above call so this can go on.
asciilifeform: the code has guaranteed run bounds. so i cannot make any comment re 'in general', there is nothing to fix.
mircea_popescu: there is no such thing as code with guaranteed jack shit on linux. next question.
asciilifeform: let'em reboot. and i will start on the sawing-apart of the werker and wwwtron as soon as my hands are again free.
mircea_popescu: least concern, for srsly.
mircea_popescu: though i must confess syn flood had a better ring to it altogether.
asciilifeform: i'm still convinced re syn flood.
asciilifeform: and idiot monkey ~will~ see 'cpu utilization 95%' and think 'killing the box'
asciilifeform: it is WHAT WE BOUGHT IT FOR
asciilifeform: for fucks sake
mircea_popescu: you probably ran into a disk or io locks issue.
asciilifeform: newsflash: sshd doesn't care !!
mircea_popescu: ie, ssh moduli breakage didn't sink phf's lisp-frail stack. but it did sink YOURS
asciilifeform: a RUNNING SESSION no less
mircea_popescu: mwahaha > 9k

asciilifeform: btw werker uses db for approx. 40 seconds of a run, to dump keys, which subsequently all load into memory.
Framedragger: but yeah, i've noticed that sshd works just fine (incl accepting new connections) even if cpu at ~100% and/or no free disk space. there's that.
Framedragger: wonder what was the memory status. maybe in syslog
Framedragger: (re. failures to allocate)
asciilifeform: 0 clue in logs.

asciilifeform: these showed 0 thing of interest.
asciilifeform: (mega-unsurprise, incidentally.)
Framedragger: by the way, i haven't ever used it, but from reading around it appears that streaming replication may indeed be quite efficient. every time row is inserted, row is sent off to remote replica. but this does not really require cpu. so maybe it wouldn't slow things down further / wouldn't be particularly slow even if db being clobbered 24/7

asciilifeform: i had nfi that we were even buying a 'fritz chipped' box.
mircea_popescu: of course you did ? iirc we discussed processor make etc way back when selecting ?
asciilifeform: i dun recall specifying 'remote admin card'
asciilifeform: processor - yes. ram - yes. disk - yes.
asciilifeform: fritz ? nope.
mircea_popescu: uh. i still wonder how you think computers work.
asciilifeform: i only know how mine work.
mircea_popescu: apparently the divergence is winder than previously realised. anyway - ipkvm capable chipsets come with ipkvm.
Framedragger: (server in DC you don't own, what illusions of hardware-safety...)
mircea_popescu: what exactly did you think you were asking when you asked for the dc to kvm in your box and fix it for you ?
asciilifeform: well the one i subscribed to in the past, had a physical cart, with wheels
asciilifeform: that plugged into vga jack and kbd.
asciilifeform: ethernet snake on other end.
mircea_popescu: this costs ~200 an hour you realise.
asciilifeform: by itself it did 0, customer had to log in with own pw.
asciilifeform: it cost 0. (but there was a queue, sometimes a whole hour long!)
asciilifeform: this was a fiddybuck/mo dc.
mircea_popescu: sounds very much like 1998.
mircea_popescu: anyway. in the intervening years there's this new approach that dcs favour because cheaper.
asciilifeform: such cheap. logs in as root, deletes logs on the box (yes)
asciilifeform: leaves 0 trace.
mircea_popescu: it doesn't log in ; nor does it interact with your os.
asciilifeform: (this is not hard, but gotta wonder , what , this is sop in commercial kvm chip nao ?)
asciilifeform: built-in ram forensictron ?
mircea_popescu: afaik it can't actually dump ram or do useful debugging. but it can reboot the system, which is you know, a crossed wire.
asciilifeform: i had occasion to install such a machine a few yrs ago, somewhere, it came with 'kvm chipset', but this feature was not advertised. the advertised feature is just that, kvm, where you get a tty prompt.)
mircea_popescu: sort-of. by now they have derpy guis for it.

mircea_popescu: not saying it's not possible, but in practice above pay grade of most dc techs.
BingoBoingo: shinohai: fxd
Framedragger: (this is a case where i am more cynical than asciilifeform: a DC you don't know, what illusions does one have; okay, one could install a sensor which signals if box was 'tampered with'; they could still take box offline, clone memory, set up a replica. etc etc etc.)

asciilifeform: once it stops responding to shell, it may as well have been stolen.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform you gotta learn to judiciously allocate your time ; Framedragger the problem isn't so much locking up the box - it's that the box will fuck up, this being "foss" bullshit, and then the owner will be like "i dun wanna pay for a box i can't use, notwithstanding this is what i claimed i want".
Framedragger: asciilifeform: then, i think, box needs to physically reside with someone in your WoT. i'm just saying. maybe cheap slippery slope sophism.
asciilifeform: and i will add that , aside from the login keyz, there are 0 secrets on the box.
asciilifeform: Framedragger: i would keep it personally if i had where. (see old thread.)
Framedragger: right, fair enough i guess.
asciilifeform: and mircea_popescu has point. i'ma back to wurk, bbl.
Framedragger: mircea_popescu: sure, there's that...
mircea_popescu: point in case here. it is beyond even the shadow of the most absurd doubt that alf's code locked the box. but he's willing to spend time fighting the obvious, rather than anything else, because hey, this is a bitter pill to swallow.
mircea_popescu: i'm not for a second saying HE could have done much better / differently.
mircea_popescu: but the point remains, mtbf in linux world is NOT years.
mircea_popescu: and yes, we're woprking on fixing this. the work is wide, and we can't get over, some handsome rovers from town to town etc.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: mtbf of the linux boxes at my ~house~ is measured in years... why do you suppose is this.

Framedragger: (master + 1 single slave sounds reasonable to me fwiw)
Framedragger: that line can be quoted so out of context
mircea_popescu: lol. yeah, might work here, it's not clear. the problem, you have to understand, is how integrated the data is. sure a db with however many lines did fine in whatever box. the problem is that everything phuctor has, phuctor uses, and so it's very close to the unmitigated nightmare which is "random access"t
mircea_popescu: in general db optimization / low consumption success stories rest on a very opposite situation - the lines are only ever interesting in one perspective and light only lights one facet at a time sorta things.
mircea_popescu: a similar situation to how compression works great on literature and poorly on (proper) random strings.
Framedragger: this reminds me. you know, sometimes postgres prefers to do sequential read instead of using a reasonable index, because, as it estimates, using index would involve too much seeking etc. *but* with SSD, random access is much much faster. (and btw postgres does not automatically know about seek times in SSDs..)
Framedragger: so needs to be informed
mircea_popescu: i dunno that alf is a db engineer by trade, so it's entirely possible specific measures could help, especially if they're of the magic number ilk of "set X to Y in config file, we didn't docum,ent this anywhere but its tru!"

mircea_popescu: the entire stack is built pretty much to create this - first, we have a phuctor, and 2mn keys looks like the whole world, and any finds look improbable as shit. then some finds are found, and more keys are fed, so now 50mn looks like the whole world and a few finds a day are expected. BUT THEN a way is found to crack thousands of keys in a week, and well, the echafaudage which held up the original is struggling.
