Framedragger: it doesn't do that for me (but i'm yet to double check that some 'additional' powersaving / freq scaling features are not enabled)
Framedragger: (okay apparently if your cpu supports 'constant_tsc' (as seen in cpuinfo) then this timestamp counter actually counts time and not processor ticks which is a *good thing* given freq scaling etc.; this is available in all new intel processors; what a rabbit hole, man)
Framedragger: (also due to modern out-of-order execution in cpu pipelines, may need to force all commands before the rdtsc call to be 'flushed', i.e. to have completed before the counter instruction is called; just noting for self)
mircea_popescu: basically, "modern" shit evolves towards uselessness.

mircea_popescu: oimmunity against either current fetus or, even more perverse, against the NEXT. girl has kid fine, but also prepares herself to murder next horribly. nature is FULL of such traps.)
mircea_popescu: the problem, however, is that under the skin-deep "kid is fine", his passive genetics have seriously weakened. if he lives as part of a larger population that does this, a few generations down the road genetic decay manifests and there's literally no hope -- the population will either move to exogamy or die out.
mircea_popescu: which is WHY the "dun fuck your sister" thing is such a huge taboo : a) it will kill you and b) you won't notice. that's the problem with these boiled frogs scenarios, from carbon monoxide poisoning to sibling conception to etc : you got no warning bells connected to THIS failure mode.
mircea_popescu: but what this means, obviously, taking the converse... is that there's a lot there than meets the eye. which is the point.
mircea_popescu: (hydrops fetalis / rhesus disease crumbs the rh thing)
mircea_popescu: this is, of course, also the natural basis for tyranny. it's nice and good to have independent agents, but there must be some sort of authority which tells them "hey, you're rh-, your husband rh+, you're seven months in, here's your rh antigen shot." this authority may be the wife, may be the husband, but if it's neither of them it'll have to be something outside, and if it is what do you call it ?
mircea_popescu: tyranny, exactly. "do this or die." that's the definition. and it's not yielding : if the wife/husband have the intellectual wherewithal to understand the whys and wherefores, fine, and bully for them. but if they do not -- it isn't thereby going away, lol.
mircea_popescu: so it stands entirely unrevisable : either you understand it or not ; whether you want it or not : here's your shot. tyranny.
mircea_popescu: add to this that there's a long list of such must-know (o hey, bought new house in so and so zone ? does it have a basement ? here's your geiger counter. what do you mean you don't understand ? atten-hut! nobody asked you what you understand, and it'll be 49.95

mircea_popescu: asciilifeform recall earlier discussion re "what is segwit" / deedbot ?
mircea_popescu: "l1" in this phraseology would be "deeds".
mircea_popescu: ie, they're not on-chain but once-removed.
mircea_popescu: l0 is verified by the bitcoin network as part of its functioning. l1 can be verified by anyone with a full blockchain.
asciilifeform: i can see how it could exist, but not what the point is
mircea_popescu: anywya, the reason i linked it is because obviously the ~whole space readily reduces to "what a number of people understood and remembered of what they at some point read on #trilema"
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform you don't see what the point for deeds is ?!
asciilifeform: not deeds, lol
asciilifeform: the heathen imitation

asciilifeform: 'i can't believe it's not bitcoin'
mircea_popescu: why do the 5000 bs "christian" us sects exist ?
mircea_popescu: absolutely no conceivable reason outside of some jolene or other needing to feel special.
mircea_popescu: plus they got into an argument over the carpeting color in 1956 and split the congregation.
mircea_popescu: in other not news, argentine reds are fucking fabulous omfg.
asciilifeform: speaking of schisms in heathendom, https://archive.is/WplLL >> 'A group of nearly 20 exchanges has released contingency plans in the event that the bitcoin network splits in two, creating two competing currencies. The exchanges are now planning to list Bitcoin Unlimited (BU) as they would an alternative cryptocurrency...'
mircea_popescu: eh, "nearly 20 exchanges", wut. "exchange" idiots have managed to trade the 2012 situation, where they had gone from 0 to almost 50% of bitcoin trading for a slow and agonizing death. i'd be surprised if all of them (which within 90% is the first two) actually cover 10% of bitcoin for fiat trade.
mircea_popescu: i know that out of the past 1mn i traded, 0% was on an exchange.
asciilifeform: the lulzy bit: '"However, none of the undersigned can list BTU unless we can run both [blockchains] independently without incident. Consequently, we insist that the Bitcoin Unlimited community (or any other consensus breaking implementation) build in strong two-way replay protection," the group said. "Failure to do so will impede our ability to preserve BTU for customers and will either delay or outright preclude the listing of BTU."'
mircea_popescu: heh. whatevs.
asciilifeform: i.e. 'we know about mircea_popescu's nuke, invent a magical bunker for us to hide in'
mircea_popescu: more like, the usg is under the pressure to appear to be doing something, has settled on "chipping", ie, o noes if an eth splits off bitcoin that'll be bad for bitcoin!!!1
mircea_popescu: not how it works irl on any models that don't include "we need to be seen as doing something please god" as a hard constraint.

a111: Logged on 2017-03-13 00:13 asciilifeform: !~later tell phf i dug out my crate of dead bolix boards, turns out i'm a chump, the pcb in question was a dead xl1200 ~i/o~ board. the only cpu on it is what looks like a z80! 0 smbx silicon.
asciilifeform: phf: i already have a logic analyzer, but would have to get it attaches to the pins on that thing
asciilifeform: *attached
asciilifeform: and where'd you get that one ?
asciilifeform: wanna sell?
asciilifeform: though the pinout is unknown, which is why i considered getting entire card
asciilifeform: literally everything else on that card, i have pinouts for, they are standard 1980s parts, it seems
asciilifeform: i can read the eprom, and the GALs
phf: i suspect there's a handful of pals there?
asciilifeform: and xray for the pcb tracks
phf: i'm not sure if it's working, it's from a "possibly broken" box, but i can lend you that one after i test it in my ivory, and if you have a viable project of some sort, i can probably get you more
asciilifeform: overall i suspect this is a more productive attack than microscopy ( though the thing was fabbed at 1 uM, it would be quite visible on optical microscope )
phf: my goal with that thing was to give it to zeptobars, but i'm not going to moscows for at least another 4 months
asciilifeform: i bid 2.6k usd on the ivory2 from earlier thread, then wss outbid, then offered nonbinding '2nd chance', but by then thought 'meh'
asciilifeform: phf wouldn't happen to know the pinout, by any chance ..?
asciilifeform: *was
asciilifeform: phun phakt, according to the press release for smbx, that thing had 370k transistor. slightly more than 386. (but around half as many as 486 iirc)
asciilifeform: it'd handily fit in a, e.g., xilinx spartan6.
asciilifeform: ( and picture if it could be made in modern fab, at GHz+ ! )
asciilifeform: betcha all of the 'life support' would fit also. just stick a few srams and a nic on top.
asciilifeform: out of curiosity, why does phf keep 'ivories' around if he has alpha, and on top of that a patched/working x64 generatron?
asciilifeform: ( ivories, and xl1200, and i forget what else )
asciilifeform: iirc alpha-genera on 1ghz alpha runs at 40x the clock that xl1200 ran at..
phf: both approaches are viable, you can use emulator as reference, you can also use real hardware as reference, with the solution meeting somewhere in the middle.
phf: i don't have an alpha though, same reason i don't have a macivory, i don't want to have to study/rely on all these other architectures
asciilifeform: oh hm i thought phf had an ivory
asciilifeform: asciilifeform would trade a 3620 and 2 alphas for 1 working ivory
phf: xl1201 is an ivory (ivory being a cpu inside the box, merlin being the architecture)
asciilifeform: aah
phf: macivory is an ivory on a board with all the i/o handled over a bus by a mac
asciilifeform: aha i knew this
asciilifeform: i was merely confounded by 'i'll test it in my ivory'
phf: aah, yeah, i'll test it in xl
phf afk
asciilifeform: also it seems like there were 2 macivories, the one i almost bought, was 4x slower than the last made, and had external ( on another nubus card ) ram
asciilifeform: which paradoxically makes it ~better~ from reversing pov
asciilifeform: ( much easier to snoop nubus cycles than to tap a bus on ancient and fragile card )
asciilifeform: phf: i've contemplated a 'cheat' : run macivory 'lifesupport' on patched m68k emulator (e.g., 'basilisk') that would bring nubus i/o out to a test stand, on which the card would sit
asciilifeform: then replace card with fpga+ivorychip (after reversed glue logic)
asciilifeform: then, eventually, whole shebang with fpga.
mircea_popescu: that said, it could of course be re-done, by people who understand completely what it did. but a lot more work than "print me these old family films on modern paper".
mircea_popescu: oops
mircea_popescu: http://btcbase.org/log/2017-03-18#1629015 << odds are it couldn't be re-done in a current fab, the vast majority of current fab constraints go towards avoiding echos and other self-crits the design may impose upon itself. as the engineers at the time didn't labour under the same constraints, and they're cutting out way more than 99% of the theoretical design space, the odds their work product would work in 14nm process are ze☝︎

mircea_popescu: gee. how big is a 22nm z80 lol
asciilifeform: i know this because he is fabless, makes'em at commercial 'by the pound' fabs
mircea_popescu had no idea.
asciilifeform: fabbing at other than 'bleeding edge' process, is apparently quite predictable and 'boring' affair
