BingoBoingo: Maybe I misread your pederasty comment?
trinque: was giving you the reason for it. justification for "confused" follows the claim, in any "polite company".
BingoBoingo would say he's confused but doesn't want to invite a dick into his mouth.
trinque: the pederasty comment is about the glee with which folks will erect a strawman, ("This is how it's defined." <-> "Why?") vs ("This is how it's defined?" <-> "No it's not.") to fuck, which has more to do with... primate brains, less to do with thinking.
trinque: pecking order is unavoidable but not nearly as interesting as the actual subject there was.
trinque: when the former supercedes the latter entirely, I'm out, retarded primates didn't contort their brains enough to think that day.
trinque: and if this "skewering the thing that wasn't said, to the great entertainment of das man" was widespread among SU intellectuals, that'd be a fine reason for them to have gone into decline.

mircea_popescu: two hours in, the girl being a sweet soul, asked if he might be invited over ? so sure, dude's been playing the dog long enough, let him be invited over.
mircea_popescu: he is an engineer. he wants to know, inter alia, what do i do, and knows that "bitcoin isn't mined anymore". it becomes evident from conversation that she's living with him but isn't fucking him, and while the situation is perfectly acceptable to him, it's very tenuous for her.
mircea_popescu: so we mock him a little (which he germans through) and part on good friends. two days later, turns out she moved on.

asciilifeform: 'This IRC + GPG idea is growing legs. Lots of legs: RT @riking27: messages are max 512 bytes, it fits in a single RSA block it's perfect!'
mircea_popescu: i am persuaded that it is correct to hold the ability to reconcile the i-you and the world-you correctly from both perspectives as the one test of maturity of the individual. it is however trivial to empirically prove this is not always possible (which is the deep meaning as well as the intellectual relevancy of tragedy - and which is why the greeks or shakespeare matter, and some nigglet woman does not).
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: this is fundamental, like the ancient art of not shitting in pants
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform heh. how does it feel to be liek, in the center of a world so blinded by its central greatness it dares not even raise its eyes ?
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform you'd be surprised.
Framedragger: mircea_popescu: so you'd then perhaps say that, maybe, a transperson is doomed to not be able to reconcile i-you and world-you, and it is tragic to that person (but that *pretending* as if one has integrated the two in that instance is very stupid)?
mircea_popescu: back to welt der kunst for a moment : there is this (idiotarian) notion that the role of art is somehow "emotional" and a piece of crap is art if it "evokes" in the viewer. bullshit. the only point of art is exactly as above : if it provides persuasive examples of the nature discussed.
Framedragger: (hm, maybe you'd not allow for such a term (transperson) in the first place...)
mircea_popescu: this, ironically, makes most of eg "sci-fi" pulp ; and some parts of contemporary (esp visual) arts quite on point.
Framedragger: (for logz, an example of non-pulp scifi is, imho, "closer": http://eidolon.net/?story=Closer)
asciilifeform: Framedragger: i recall that one !
asciilifeform: d00d had a bunch of nifty pieces.
Framedragger: (yeah, imo its central focal point *is* the whole reconciliation issue, from epistemology point of view)
Framedragger: indeed...
mircea_popescu: http://btcbase.org/log/2016-12-17#1584892 << i would say that pretending the integration "was already done", as if it were some sort of artefact like an oven rather than a process, like respiration ; or pretending that "someone else" is responsible for it being done (such as don't say word x in front of person y because o noes they're too frail to manage) is pure infantilism.☝︎

mircea_popescu: a transperson is no more or less doomed than any other person ; because, again, the gap is fundamental and can not be bridged.
mircea_popescu: just, since the transperson is more specified than the any other person, there is also a more accessible route to their doom
mircea_popescu: much like if you know it's king oedip, you kinda know ~how~ his integration will fail.
mircea_popescu: but this aside, the only reason you're "better" ie different is that you don't know.
mircea_popescu: not that you won't die.
mircea_popescu: (yes, fear of death, in the infantile form thereof is the deep driver behind the pretense of integration "not being a problem", not laziness or anything else.)
mircea_popescu: the ustards are a selection of people uniquely and colossal-y afraid of dying, which explains most of the psychopathology.

Framedragger: (heathen lack of WoT use is indeed frowned-upon and confusing)
mircea_popescu: and finally re http://btcbase.org/log/2016-12-16#1584334 : this isn't an "error" - there is perfectly good reason for the bias (bias is not automatically erroneous!) to flow this way : the event ~happened in the world~. when the event happens in the head, girl a sees girl b feel like a slut, decides girl b is drunk ; girl a sees girl a feel like a slut, decides she is a slut.☝︎
a111: Logged on 2016-12-16 18:18 mircea_popescu: if girl a sees girl b drop a vase girl a thinks girl b is clumsy ; if girl a sees girl a drop the same vase girl a tihnks the vase is slippery.
mircea_popescu: ie, in world-context the bias is for object ; and in i-context the bias is for subject.
mircea_popescu: which is why people never evaluate correctly neither whether they'll drop the vase too ; nor whether the suicidal depressive will actually kill themselves.

mircea_popescu: except there were 9 today, so it's certainly increasing velocity
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform there is that yeh
mircea_popescu: there's 247 unreported in the above figures (going by phuctor's stats page listing 1136 broken moduli atm)
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform incidentally, this sadmods page with its 640k entries is insanity. gotta ship that data in a better format than webpage.
asciilifeform: it's greppable!1111

asciilifeform: it'll be ~less~ usable unless i can figure out how to make the db work in parallel
mircea_popescu: aand 504
asciilifeform: right now the thing it hangs on is ~getting to the db at all, ever~
asciilifeform: because it gets 1000+ writes/sec
mircea_popescu: yeh sadmods can't be accessed. maybe just take the loi
mircea_popescu: the link* off altogether
asciilifeform: phuctor-3 (the next rev, naturally) will be static html
asciilifeform: generated nightly.
mircea_popescu: sensible, but even if it were - sadmods, a page worth 640mb may well not be worth doing as such. really i gotta dld a jiggabit of data every time ?
asciilifeform: atm i dun see another way of making the thing behave like a reasonable-people www.
mircea_popescu: paginate it and let me download as many pages as i wish
asciilifeform: aite, it'll be paginated.
mircea_popescu: worx.
asciilifeform: unrelatedly, and i have to dig up a week-old thread, but this has to be done, i gotta deebot FUCKGOATS
asciilifeform: not even the pictures, just the genesis
asciilifeform: how do i do this.
asciilifeform: *deedbot
mod6: are you just trying to clearsign one vpatch then?
asciilifeform: mod6: v doesn't deal in clearsigned anythings
asciilifeform: you know that.
mod6: i do know that. :]
mod6: then this is a question for trinque; he'll know if deedbot can or can't deal with .sig files.
asciilifeform: and yes, i'm aware that i can take whatever and package it up in a uuencoded+clearsigned turd. but this is insanity.
mod6: it's your thing, you can do it however you see fit.
asciilifeform: i don't see any of the available options as 'fit' !!
mod6: then do nothing, until there is a solution.
asciilifeform: i gotta do this BEFORE MOTHERFUCKING CRATE SHIPS
asciilifeform: understand??
mod6: 'nothing' is always an option.
asciilifeform: say mr.crate opens his crate and finds rng that spew out marsaglia instead of trng bits.
asciilifeform: he asks 'what gives'
asciilifeform: i point TO DEEDBOT
mod6: what do you propose as the idea solution here?
mod6: *ideal
asciilifeform: ---- except that i can't because apparently we have 0 working infrastructure for actually releasing v code
asciilifeform: solution is that deedbot eats ordinary standalone gpg sigs.
asciilifeform: ( trinque ? how difficult this would be ? )
asciilifeform: to make clear what i need here, 1) i gotta put a source link on nosuchlabs.com 2) it must be a HUMAN READABLE + VALID vgenesis 3) it should be a link to deedbot.
deedbot: http://danielpbarron.com/2016/the-drunken-explorer/ << Daniel P. Barron - The drunken explorer
Framedragger: asciilifeform: *for the time being*, can you not hash the package, and deedbot clearsigned hash of package?
Framedragger: sure, this isn't a logistical solution, but you'll be able to point to a timestamped-and-signed checksum.
mod6: <+asciilifeform> ---- except that i can't because apparently we have 0 working infrastructure for actually releasing v code << i disagree with this. what we have, and trb isn't the only one who's done this, is; you make a mirror, and then v.pl deals with this. you grab all the vpatches you want, and the sigs from people you trust, and you place them in v, then you do what you wanna do.
asciilifeform: Framedragger: i can, and ~nobody will verify.
asciilifeform: this is no good.
Framedragger: isn't that their problem, not yours?
Framedragger: what use are they who do not verify anyway? do you expect those who do not verify to verify v sigs?
asciilifeform: this isn't the only problem
asciilifeform: how do i even phrase this
asciilifeform: i need to nail down the existence of the current cpld config prior to crate leaving.
Framedragger: (i am aware of vdiff barfing over certain character sequences. but maybe it'd be enough to timestamp-and-sign hash for now? to be able to *prove* things.)
asciilifeform: but to nail it down in such a way that it is immediately obvious to all visitors to my www.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform what's the problem with signed tarball again ?
asciilifeform: ~obvious~, rather than pryable-apart-if-opposed
asciilifeform: does that make sense ?
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: tarballs ain't vgenesis
mircea_popescu: what exact problem are you trying to solve here ?
asciilifeform: i did not succeed in describing it above..?
mircea_popescu: not for the part where you don't like the solution.
mircea_popescu: you point to deedbot which contains signed tarball. what's the problem ?
asciilifeform: v should abolish the idiocy of 'signed tarballs'
Framedragger not sure why vgenesis must be used here, even though in the future that's the correct ideological pathway, sure. but i'm possibly underinformed and out of my element
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform which brings us back to "what problem are you trying to solve"
asciilifeform: it's a motherfucking vgenesis, it's human-readable, AND signed, AND unmutilated, the way it stands
asciilifeform: and that's what i want up on the www.
asciilifeform: and not tarball.
mircea_popescu: if you've internally decided that you won't ship the items until "v demolishes the idiocy of tarballs" we have a problem.
mod6: <+asciilifeform> v should abolish the idiocy of 'signed tarballs' << it doesn't have to. so far, we don't even have anything of the kind. just vpatches + sigs. 'tis all.
mircea_popescu: link me to this item ?
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i'm about to upload, gimme a few min.
mircea_popescu: alright.

asciilifeform: thestringpuller: plz to read today's log
mircea_popescu: thestringpuller the two evident avenues would be a) power differential analysis (ie, see how much electricity it eats, and parasite waveforms it induces). this is amply discussed on web re subverting gpg (eventually they got it to work with mere microphone, but same principle)
Framedragger: (but i think i got it why you don't want binary tarball - it'd sure be nice to be able to host a plaintext package, with v sigs etc right there. hm. but then why deedbot the *whole* thing - why not deedbot only hashes of tarball version of webthing. make webthing available to view, but also for those who wish to verify via deedbot, too, make tarball available. not pretty, but worx for *now*.)
mircea_popescu: and much cheaper b) make it encrypt the same thing a shitton of times and see if there's any key leakage.
mircea_popescu: Framedragger you're very loud and not very helpful.
Framedragger: sorry.
mircea_popescu: thestringpuller neither of these are "easy" in the sense of windows. you'll have to do research and work the elbow grease to see results.
phf: mod6: we have the 3rd party signed tarballs, that we can't convert to v because of the binary problem. i think asciilifeform doesn't want to fallback to doing the same with own releases. wants to solve binary problem, or find some alternative solution. there's also been a lot of sentiment here against using sha/sig combination. "sign the thing itself" etc.
mircea_popescu: the part where "please don't make me turn ascii into tarballs" is sensible, just, lets see what he actually is talking about.
mod6: phf: oh i get it. i lead by example with trb on this. there is no good solution here. we do not want blobs in V, and somewhere between a-z you end up with a blob that must get signed along with the vpatches.
mod6: there may be some better solution to this with deedbot.
mod6: it currently does not exist.
mod6: now. if you need to ship, this instant. you either do what you can, as I did, or you do nothing until you can.
mod6: if I were him, this is what I would do: take the schematic blob, encode it, clearsign it with a note at the top and a hash of its output value. submit to deedbot. next, edit the code somewhere or prefereably create a README.txt that points to that deed, create a new fuckgoats_genesis.vpatch and fuckgoats_genesis.vpatch.alf.sig on nosuchlabs.com, point to them with your www.
mod6: done. ship it.
mod6: i'll even run a mirror of it myself if anyone would like me to do so.
mircea_popescu: mod6 hang on hang on, it's not even clear any actual blobs are involved this time around.
asciilifeform: there are no;t.
asciilifeform: not.
asciilifeform: they will be included strictly as sha512 in the 'readme'.

mod6: I think it would be really cool to have something like !!deedbot <wotpaste_of_vpatch> <pgp_sig_of_wotpaste_vpatch>
mircea_popescu: mod6 the only q is whether this isn't redundant ; and if it isn't, whether the utility doesn't belie bad design etc.
mod6: It could place those in, just as it does regular deeds.. I'd say, if anyone is a good lisp dev (phf, whomever) to work with trinque to get this feature put into place.
mircea_popescu: this needs a proper discussion, and the exact reforms/solutions aren't evident yet.

mircea_popescu: incidentally, is there such a thing as an "ai code commenter" ? specifically, rather than the hard problem of "human speech" or junk of that nature, is there any machine approach to turning compileable code into literate code (kuhn) ?
mod6: To start a bit deeper of a discussion surrounding what we talked about with 'infrastructure' for V, if it's necessary or not, or whatever. I kinda put some thoughts down; http://dpaste.com/2S08M67.txt
mircea_popescu: mod6 you gotta get a blog. how am i gonna link a dpaste in 6 months ?
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: recall the solrodar thread ?
mircea_popescu: yes.
mod6: I did that, as to not spam the channel here, and to try to think through what my entire thought might have been. If there is any merit to my thoughts, I'll post it somewhere.
mircea_popescu will read in a moment.,
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: so then. no such thing. it is ~impossible to machine anything useful out of code, if it were possible, it would be done by compiler and the ~language per se~ would include this intelligence.
mod6: Something just to start the thought of what to do about all of this. Maybe there is even some folding into a UCI with this, not sure.
mod6: Or tb0t for that matter.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform and yet bounds checking is possible.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: depends in what
mircea_popescu: which is my point ; your negative is too strong.
asciilifeform: at runtime -- only if the cpu is 'smart' , or if the compiler stuffs in the check every single time
asciilifeform: (a la ada)
asciilifeform: at compile-time -- only if the language is properly constrained
asciilifeform: (a la haskell)
mod6: Eh, I don't even think I like my own idea.
mod6: Food for thought I guess. :/
phf: asciilifeform: i'm sad your schematic is missing the annotation. how will we know in thousand years time that it was indeed penned by the blessed leibowitz
asciilifeform: phf: eh what annotation
asciilifeform: also if the entire thing isn't bloody obvious, then i have nfi even
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i think he means you didn't put your name on it
phf: ^
phf: ~it is also a joke~ i have no idea with you people any more
asciilifeform: hey the schem hashes are in 1) the v genesis + 2) the signed manifest
mircea_popescu: mod6 seems more like you want phf's bot to have an irc submission interface ?
mircea_popescu: which i think he intends to do on his own once he's happy with the whole tower ?
asciilifeform: phf: my sense of joke will come back when i'm done hand-testing the rng boards tonight and finally vacuum seal the last of'em
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform there's something fundamentally visceral about the written page you're entirely inadherent to, as seen here and in the case of clearsigns etc. pass by reference is not the same as pass by value!
mod6: yeah, that could probably be a decent feature there. i do recall phf talking about it.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: tru
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: sorta why i wanted the whole thing in the genesis.
mircea_popescu: but in truth there's two kinds of kids in the kindergarten, those who go around writing their name on all the cubes and those who go around pointing at all the things and saying "mine!"
asciilifeform: btw when i see symptoms that anybody has read fg.v i will tell an exciting story.
asciilifeform: about how i was a hair's breadth from concluding that we'd have to scrap the first set of boards
asciilifeform: because initially i could not get the yoke test to actually work as advertised.
asciilifeform: turns out, the clock crystals diverse after THREE MILLISECONDS, not 'hours'
asciilifeform: *diverge
mircea_popescu: o.O
asciilifeform: they dun make'em like they usedto.
mircea_popescu: dude wtf new process is this, they just bake 5mn and then filter out the working resonators out of a collodial suspension ?
asciilifeform: apparently.
asciilifeform: hey gotta cheapen so IPAD!!111!!1
mircea_popescu: remarkable.
mircea_popescu: this however is actually not to our detriment.
asciilifeform: but after week+ of worst headache in my living memory, i discovered a finesse.
mircea_popescu: "you mean the rng tool can't even keep fucking time ?" "aha"
asciilifeform: see line 324 of fg.v.
asciilifeform: FUCKGOATS can now... fuck.
mircea_popescu: ah shares clock
asciilifeform: i turned the 'reset' pin into a fuck-cloaca
mircea_popescu: lol
mircea_popescu: nice.
mod6: heh, 'sad_dog'
shinohai: 💩
asciilifeform: btw in case there are folx who are not familiar with logic layout, this is not a comp proggy in the usual sense, it compiles to gate netlist
asciilifeform: (all of the 'always' blocks execute simultaneously, if 'execute' is even the word)
phf: welcome to dataflow country
asciilifeform: the thing sits down, in the end, using 71 out of the 72 macrocells in xc9572xl.
asciilifeform: shinohai: that hieroglyph doesn't display here...

asciilifeform: indeed
shinohai: :/
asciilifeform: and it isn't just 'the vpatches are available'
asciilifeform: note that only 1 of the items in the manifest (the first) is vpatch
Framedragger: asciilifeform: for my education, so the way to make yoke test work is that the 'master' part outputs its clock via the reset pin? (this is prolly what mircea_popescu meant but it's new territory for me).
shinohai: Can't have one without rest
Framedragger preemptively thanks for education
deedbot: http://deedbot.org/bundle-443869.txt

mircea_popescu: Framedragger aha.
Framedragger: i see, very elegant!
asciilifeform: Framedragger: short version of the story goes like this. our analogue rng is an analogue device, and is not synched with anything! so it occasionally violates the hold time constraint of any digital circuit it happens to be plugged into
BingoBoingo: log link fxd
asciilifeform: the whole idea of 'digital circuit' is somewhat promisetronic
asciilifeform: there is no such animal in nature.
Framedragger: i see, hence the need to keep 'clock sync'
mircea_popescu: now question for the mathematicians in attendance : obviously we know that if you want to "keep bot mining tethered to this point" the approach is to implement drunk walk. this however will result in a gradient intensity of steps, decreasing from the origin. now - how do we shape the intensity distribution so that eg the maximal intensity is in a circle around the origin, while maintaining the desirable properties of the drun
mircea_popescu: k walk ?
asciilifeform: this also lets the owner test the functionality of his FUCKGOATS cpld and clock crystal SEPARATELY
asciilifeform: because diddled crystals -- are indeed possible
asciilifeform: physically, at any rate
mircea_popescu: "selected" i guess sure.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: make one 'leg' of the 'drunk' longer than the other.

mircea_popescu: i suspect i'm not the only one either.
asciilifeform: it is normally called 'hill climbing' in literature
asciilifeform: 'drunkard's walk' is when it is done wholly at-random
mircea_popescu: no this actually is drunk walk.
asciilifeform reads
mircea_popescu: problem is "keep sample locations tethered to this origin"
asciilifeform: does the 'walker' know his distance from the origin ?
asciilifeform: (directly, that is)
mircea_popescu: yes.
asciilifeform: then can make each step 'cost' in proportion to the distance it puts between him and origin
mircea_popescu: (well, could, in this implementation doesn't bother to though)
mircea_popescu: could, yes

danielpbarron: asciilifeform, what do you mean 'leg' re: drunk walk ?
Framedragger: in math terms, probably that when selecting new angle angle, there is a statistical bias towards one side from the current angle? so that if it were a person, one of the legs would be shorter, and the person would be inclined towards one side when walking somewhere.
Framedragger: (if you then draw path of person with enough datapoints (sufficient amount of choose-new-angle events), you'd get an arc/circle.)

mircea_popescu: course the error here is enough to drift the miner one full step in 1bn explore attempts, which is far outside what anyone ever managed to do in one run.

mircea_popescu: Framedragger it already tests the limits of common understanding, with good stuff like pricing, industry models, etc.
mircea_popescu: incidentally asciilifeform : actual usecase for FUCKGOATS in eulroa play : because the current mining software uses random to position the miner, the quality of the rng generator decides how likely you actually step outside of the coords you are. ie, if your rng is biased, you're more likely to go outside.
Framedragger: you know, sometimes i'm tempted to write up some kind of graphics-less (otherwise it's not feasible) civ-style simulator with proper economics, including contracts, liquidity etc etc. maybe eulora is the place to explore all that hm :)

danielpbarron: no, run walk wouldn't do it. have to get a random number from 0 to pi and then randomly add pi to it based on a given chance
mircea_popescu: wait what ?
danielpbarron: the random from 0 to pi picks which angle to use within a certain half of the circle (of possible angles), and adding pi to it would put it in the other half
mircea_popescu: nevermind the angle, this is about the steps.
danielpbarron: i don't see how moving forward more or less after having turned a random angle would change the overall pattern
mircea_popescu: hm.
danielpbarron: Framedragger suggested that the character prefer to move left over right (or vice versa)
mircea_popescu: yes but that's nonsense.
danielpbarron: basically, prefer to move < pi rather than > pi
mircea_popescu: danielpbarron maybe try simulating it ?
danielpbarron: what should be the preference percent?
mircea_popescu: try 2:1 ratio say
danielpbarron: (another variable !!)

danielpbarron: could add another number to the already long /bot explore command
Framedragger: mircea_popescu: don't think that's nonsense - it's simply introducing a bias into choosing "which direction - left or right - should i prefer", no? or do you mean that it's not "realistic" and would look stupid? (maybe...)
mircea_popescu: Framedragger if you introduce that bias you turn it into directional movement.
mircea_popescu: which yes, can have its uses.
mircea_popescu: just, wasn't the stated problem.
