asciilifeform: thestringpuller: that, or kernel
asciilifeform: or wait for sane walletrons.
mircea_popescu: kernel patch best way
thestringpuller: kernel patch as in feed directly to /dev/random ?
mircea_popescu: openssl can't be trusted to actually use entropy in the first place.
mircea_popescu: thestringpuller as in feed /dev/random directly from it yes
thestringpuller: "RAND_poll seeds the random number generator using a system-specific entropy source, which is /dev/urandom on UNIX-like operating systems" << so openssl default is PRNG??? RE: "The urandom device may lack sufficient entropy for your needs, and you might want to reseed it immediately from /dev/random. On Unix and other operating systems that provide the block device, you can use RAND_load_file to load directly from /dev/random."
mircea_popescu: no "seeds".
mircea_popescu: "random number generators" to be taken out and shot.
asciilifeform: in other softwaresucks, i applied all of the optimizations folx have written to me about re phuctor. still ~same slow.
mircea_popescu: might not be software's fault
asciilifeform: (despite postgres being permitted to eat massive qty of ram)
asciilifeform: sql dbtron is , i suspect, intrinsically unusable for this application
mircea_popescu: possibly.
asciilifeform: ( just as it is for, e.g., bitcoin )
mircea_popescu: in fairness it's a bit like using car for haulage. use train neh.
mircea_popescu: "no i'll optimize my truck". eh...
asciilifeform: it may be the most overloaded trabant on planet3
asciilifeform: (iirc we had a thread where i described how corporate ameritards, if given a problem like phuctor, would happily soak up a few $mil and megawatt of iron)

mod6: asciilifeform: anything catching your eye in the performance statistics?
mod6: or explain plans?
asciilifeform: mod6: just the same old idiocy with 10-40sec per page load.
mod6: (im much more familiar with mysql's perf schema, not really with psql, but... I find these things very helpful on a regular basis.)
mod6: so, UIs are usually victims, ofc. and the bottleneck is in the database. might be worth your time to see what your explain plans look like (are we doing a lot of table scans?), what do your lock counts look like? are we doing lots of long runing queries that return no rows? etc.
asciilifeform: mod6: well, every single new key submission is from 1 to a dozen no-result queries
mod6: it would be interesting to see, how often inserts are happening for new key submissions versus, say, something that would facilitate a regular ui page load.
asciilifeform: mod6: they happen constantly
asciilifeform: because the Framedragger data set is pumped in 24/7.
mod6: aha.
asciilifeform: incidentally i measured the thing in between Framedragger parcels
asciilifeform: still slow.
asciilifeform: the db is intrinsic bottleneck.
mod6: are you doing row-level locking?
asciilifeform: i have nfi what that means
mod6: (my guess here, is that you're inserting heavily on the same table as you are trying to read from)
asciilifeform: well noshit
mod6: and if you're doing (what might be default in pgsql) some sort of full table locking on inserts, then that'd be something to look at.
asciilifeform: we had a thread, where mircea_popescu suggested inserting in massive batches. i will eventually implement this. but i find it offputting that EVEN THEN the IDIOTIC db will prevent me from reading !!!
asciilifeform: reading AT MOTHERFUCKING DISK SPEED as it OUGHT TO READ
asciilifeform: when told omfg.
asciilifeform: dbism stinks.
thestringpuller: asciilifeform: is there a guide on making this fabled kernel module for fuckgoats?
mod6: there is a lot of configuration/tuning involved. they're picky. :/
asciilifeform: thestringpuller: no, and there is also not a ready guide on self-appendectomy
asciilifeform: mod6: i sat for whole day with the tuning. worthless.
asciilifeform: the ONE THING I ASKED FOR is not in the tunings.
asciilifeform: 'because it would be wrong' or sumthing.
mod6: fair enough.
thestringpuller: asciilifeform: :( learning cliff larger than dwarf fortress. no hints? tips and tricks?

trinque: sure thing is hateful, but you have one, can't use it wrong and lament
trinque: can you use a materialized view there?
trinque: to generate your work data, meanwhile inserting into the table the view reads from?
asciilifeform: i have nfi what this sentence means
trinque: process being "refresh materialized view" -> perform work on matview -> repeat
trinque: ok so there are materialized views, yes? stored query the results of which are written to a table
trinque: write one of those and perform your factoring work upon it
asciilifeform: stored query?
asciilifeform: trinque: understand, the gcd thing takes up ~3 minutes of db time daily. not a significant factor at all.

asciilifeform: nein.

phf: unrelatedly, someone ported franz's clim2 to ccl, but instead of using ffi to motif backend, they used an original generas clx backend, that is still there. the result is ugly, broken on mac's x11, but works, and potentially could be improved and optimized by interested parties. http://glyf.org/screenshots/clim2-clx.png
asciilifeform: phf: interesting -- what, gotta wonder, did crapple mutilate, to result in this
asciilifeform laboured under the possibly naive impression that x11 was 'in stone' for eons
phf: i'm not sure, but i remember you have to put a handful of magic incantations to live fix clx on genera to make it connect to crapple's x11

asciilifeform: in re earlier lulz, https://archive.is/xXiAF >> 'Today her total expenses average more than $300,000 a month for the product, plus around $30,000 for cabs, cell phones, rent for various safe houses, and other administrative costs. She makes a profit of $27,000 a week. “I like seeing a pile of cash in my living room,” she says.'
asciilifeform: 'The Green Angels, she tells me, are selling a fantasy of an attractive, well-educated, presentable young woman who wants to get you high—a slightly more risqué Avon lady. Not all of the Angels are working models, but they are all young and attractive. In eight years, they have never been busted by the cops. The explanation is simple: Good-looking girls don’t get searched.'
thestringpuller: asciilifeform: i must say. when I put 40 hours into the first thief over vacation, definitely repeated that phrase to myself a lot: "thinking man's doom" such an apt three word description for the game.

mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes can bcstats be moved to mimi or notrly ?
hanbot: eh. my node is current and doesn't see it, inasmuch as amt's still held.
mircea_popescu: what do you mean amt's still held ?
hanbot: i mean the amt sent to non-trb wallet is still included in trb wallet.
mircea_popescu: i don't think trb updates your wallet balance in this case. it updates it when it sends something, it doesn't rescan for doublespends.
mircea_popescu: the receiver should see it ; the sender has nfi what happened, rescan will fix.
hanbot: oh goodie.
hanbot: say, i've also got a paytxfee reset to zero (was set last run)...what's this, also doesn't update w/o rescan, or wants a setting every run?
mircea_popescu: i'm not entirely sure, but afaik trb still imports original satoshi assumptive boneheadedness in that it will not consider tx updating its own wallet which it didn't issue itself.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: option -rescan
mircea_popescu: i said that.
asciilifeform: ( http://btc.yt/lxr/satoshi/source/src/wallet.cpp?v=asciilifeform_add_verifyall_option#0565 << mechanism )
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: consider publishing your tx debugger as a trb patch ? (the thing that lets mircea_popescu answer questions like 'where is ea58f22fe5bbb4f42edb8be90a37f98b57af12007f7620f7ab94111a06ff3ebb ?' )
mircea_popescu: you know she just poked me with the same thing ?
hanbot: aha. and lol yeah.

asciilifeform: hanbot: settxfee ( http://btc.yt/lxr/satoshi/source/src/bitcoinrpc.cpp?v=asciilifeform_add_verifyall_option#0472 ) can be used to adjust a running node without restart
asciilifeform: ftr i see nTransactionFee as an idiocy, and imho the thing ought to demand the fee amount as a second argument to sendtoaddress
mircea_popescu: quite.
hanbot: yes.
mircea_popescu: the idea though is that you'd want to pay the same per kb for a whole period.
mircea_popescu: not a particularly bright idea - for one thing you may wish to prioritize txn
asciilifeform leans in direction of manual reactor control
mircea_popescu: hands CAN get tired you know
BingoBoingo: ^ When was the last time anyone coped with a coping saw?
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: me. just last month.
BingoBoingo: And how were hands? Would you be seeking an alternative if answer was yesterday and every day since last month?
asciilifeform: actually if i did it every day, would have titanic hands and 0 complaints
mircea_popescu: lol
mircea_popescu: homunculus hands!
BingoBoingo: But tiny carpal tunnels!
BingoBoingo: Sawing is fine good fun. Coping is the sort of task that lead to Doctor's adminishions to stop doing that and repetitive stress injury.
asciilifeform: to revisit upstack, ftr trb still does not have a tx debugger. when, e.g., mircea_popescu, asks me 'have you seen tx T', all i have is to grep the log barf
mircea_popescu: i am not against trb having a debugger
asciilifeform: way it oughta work is, say, 'findtx <tx>' and we get, e.g., '<tx> is nth in block B', or <tx> is in mempool', or '<tx> not seen', in all but the last case followed by hexdump
mircea_popescu: way it ought to work starts with finely dispersed listeners throughout the network, which i hesitate to place as a "every lord should have" type of obligation in 2017, but will eventually become
mircea_popescu: because the blind can't rule, as it were.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: how does 'dispersed listener' differ from 'run many nodez, and they gotta have tx debugger' ?
mircea_popescu: well not substantially. except if "run many nodes" is done by idiot, spins up 500 aws instances.
asciilifeform: all aws vm are 1 node as far as asciilifeform is concerned
asciilifeform: 'if they all had but one neck' (tm) (r)
mircea_popescu: this sounds shockingly dumb when stated, but then again in point of fact average usian has "many sources of information : reddit, wikipedia, six different fake news outlets + nature!"
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: when you wrote 'listener', i wondered if it meant something specialized and passive, a sort of pseudonode.
asciilifeform: in other lulz, heathendom https://bitnodes.21.co/nodes/?q=/therealbitcoin.org: sees 9 trb nodez.
asciilifeform: ^ these include strictly those folx who built with versionstring knob. or rather, some quite arbitrary subset thereof (i.e. those not in a black hole atm)

asciilifeform: (and i will add: 1 is quite certainly insufficient, and 2 -- just ~barely~ enough -- to have real-time access to the network)
mircea_popescu: yes, because you don't want to commit the serious resources needed for a node on each of these boxen.
mircea_popescu: gotta distinguish between push and pull sort of needs, also. if you want to know "what is x" you want something substantially different from wanting to "let everyone know y"
mircea_popescu: exactly mirroring the signed/encrypted thing in tmsr.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i've been contemplating the correct way to make pseudonodes. way i see it is, it should still maintain a cache of recent blocks, and have a backhaul to mothership controlled by owner to request signed block checksums, and whole blocks if cache does not find; rather than accepting crapolade from randos
mircea_popescu: there is some value in accepting crapolade from randos.
asciilifeform: accepting -- possible; acting on -- none whatsoever
mircea_popescu: but this is also where heterogenicity of implementation is a major republican asset.
mircea_popescu: the reason i hesitate to publish the extensive mp alien techs wrt bitcoin infrastructure isn't simply the sheer size ; nor merely the political consideration of, "hey, there's a lot of value in enemy not actually knowing what mp capabilities are -- as widely exemplified in the public sphere by the march cartel trampling among who knows what private adventures"
asciilifeform: let's say 'pseudonode' is that which one makes, if you have 1,001 boxes with acceptable bandwidth, but small disk. (e.g., a botnet.)
mircea_popescu: but actually the fact that i think we'd lose out on a lot of value by not doing the v-tron thing here.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: this was pretty clear when you explained it here to asciilifeform during the july '15 events.
asciilifeform: the example with the horse.

mod6: o7
asciilifeform: and this was on an ancient and quite slow box, even.

asciilifeform: pretty decent.

mod6: mircea_popescu: today was a gift. usually never hunt by this time of year -- too cold, too much snow in the fields.
mircea_popescu: snow is great for pheasant no ?
mod6: doesn't leave a lot for cover for the birds. we hunt in the snow, until it becomes un-walkable. once i did through 3-4 ft. drifts, and nearly had a cardiac event.
mod6: so now, i only go up to 1 ft, then I call it for the season. gets hard on the dogs too.
mircea_popescu: heh there is that
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu, mod6 : next mega-advance will probably be to make it self-reproducing - i.e. to shit out a bootable hdd with itself. i experimented with this in the pogo era but hung up at the time on buildroot freezing, which was since solved by mod6
asciilifeform: so now it is quite doable
BingoBoingo: mod6 asciilifeform mircea_popescu or hanbot care to qntra up this milestone?
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: mod6's thing worked for a while now
mircea_popescu: it's kinda covered in teh foundation reports... but maybe an interview format thing'd be a good idea
asciilifeform: i'm just slow to eat
BingoBoingo: Well covered in reports, but interview or walkthrough would be welcome.
mircea_popescu: it's not an event is what he means. was a thing for a while now, it's just incidentally been brought up
asciilifeform: (at one time, buildroot demanded net access to work)
BingoBoingo: The things about the reports is the proceed piecemeal into thing like channel epihany today
mircea_popescu: there is that.
BingoBoingo: eventually all those little steps add up into "Holy Shit" good enough lesser people would stamp "done" and quit
asciilifeform: and yes, i revved up a fully mod6tronic trb to have what to patch against, my working copies are quite dated
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu provoked again my ancient itch for a tx debugger
mircea_popescu: well, that's prolly next mega-project.
mircea_popescu: some kind of share-able listener tmsr infrastructure. has a lot to do with the uci project.
asciilifeform: for now it'd be useful to simply be able to ask a proper node to search mempool and recent blocks
mircea_popescu: yes.
mircea_popescu: though... you probablty don't want to ask the node.
mircea_popescu: curious how davout 's work on splitting function is coming along btw
mircea_popescu: anyone looking into that ?
mod6: <+mircea_popescu> it's kinda covered in teh foundation reports... but maybe an interview format thing'd be a good idea << yeah, I like the idea.

ben_vulpes: which, more of that please.
mircea_popescu: can't fault a man for that.
asciilifeform has been experimenting with a proggy that 'rides' a trb node, and takes over all comms with outside world
mod6: yeah, that project will take much thought and consideration. i applaud that approach.
mod6: asciilifeform: cool
asciilifeform: mod6: it was suggested by mircea_popescu at one time. but i can't seem to recall which thread
asciilifeform: it was in one of the discussions re 'how to cut apart'
mircea_popescu: last month or somesuch, you used the word condom
asciilifeform: ada proggy, speaks the protocol as defined by trb; but does not attempt to verify blocks, instead uses its 'horse' (trb node it rides) as an oracle
mod6: ah, yes. very cool. how's ada going for ya? I've only recently dipped my toe in that water.

asciilifeform: keep racks of item around, re-use
asciilifeform: eliminates fragging, use-after-frees
asciilifeform: but a serious adaist avoids using heap at all!
asciilifeform: creates all of the items the program will need in its life, on the stack at boot.
asciilifeform: (language has features that make this practical, such as discriminated-records)
asciilifeform: the other interesting bit is the task system. language was designed from the ground up to have sane concurrency. can make 'throwaway' processes , that pass data in intrinsically safe ways
mircea_popescu: now that's cool.
mircea_popescu: "PRB should also work on most other Unix-like systems but is not frequently tested on them."
