BingoBoingo: Trump Shoves 60 cruise missiles into Syrian Airfield's Pussy
asciilifeform: heilclitler
asciilifeform: '"Assad choked out the lives of helpless men, women and children," President Donald Trump said in remarks from Mar-a-Lago, his family compound in Palm Beach, Florida. "It is in this vital national security interest of the United States to prevent and deter the spread and use of deadly chemical weapons," said Trump...'
BingoBoingo: Not necessarily yet. Dog wagging has long tradition in US politics as way to beat the media up with itself. "Support our troops/missiles" gambit
trinque: still very much open whether he says "alright, I did something" and leaves, or starts another Iraq
asciilifeform: the count of 'leaves' to date, since 'the maine' incident, is 0.
BingoBoingo: And recently russian has expressed "limits" to support of Assad. Perhaps A-10 and Su-25 regime change Syria in harmony to MWGA
BingoBoingo: Not a likely outcome, but possibru
asciilifeform: limits, aha. # of usg battleships sent to the bottom thus far : 0
BingoBoingo: Well, 4 remaining US battleships all museums
asciilifeform: tomahawk launchers, if you want.
BingoBoingo: Bah, those are smaller ships and a couple converted ballistic missile submarines
asciilifeform: meanwhile, https://archive.is/b7Ggr >> deathray treason! and plot! i know of no reason! why deathray treason, should ever be forgot !!1111

BingoBoingo: "“Unlike the previous administration, President Trump confronted a pivotal moment in Syria and took action,” said Sens. John McCain (R-AZ) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC)." << Apparently Trump satisfied the Lich's war boner.
BingoBoingo: "Good night and God bless America and the entire world. Thank you." << On the otherhand could be hint of MWGA effort
mircea_popescu: trinque well it'll be a little difficult to start another iraq seeing how the ru planes actually work.
mircea_popescu: but anyway, there's dark silence from moscow ; seems altogether likely the chinese won this round.
asciilifeform: unfortunately they only work if flown
mircea_popescu: lol k.

asciilifeform: or what was it.
phf: i was just shooting that earlier today...
asciilifeform: #1 -- funnily -- caliber in usa.
asciilifeform: not because everyone is training for olympics. but because cheapo.
asciilifeform: 1000 / ~fiddybux.
BingoBoingo: Usually sold by the 500 round "brick"
phf: i thought that's 9mm, but i guess that makes sense. fwiw cheapest round at the range
mircea_popescu: why's the thing sold as "mit produces nutcase" anyway. 40 yo, what the fuck relation does college have
mircea_popescu: lmao "one count of possession of a silencer" ? really ?
asciilifeform: ( low enough pressure, also, that barrel can be made of shitalloy )
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: aha, this is considered a mega-crime in usa, ~same penalty as for being found with a crate of grenades, or aircraft autocannon. go figure.
mircea_popescu: and wtf is anyone training for with that shit ? "how to be totally surprised by recoil and shoot your own hat" ?
BingoBoingo: And rimfire so can be stamped out at trivial cost, while brass is unreloadable with civilian equipment
mircea_popescu: brass is reloadable by hand what are you talking
asciilifeform: whatchatalking about BingoBoingo -- brass is eminently reloadable
mircea_popescu: lol
BingoBoingo: "rimfire" is a pain
BingoBoingo: centerfire fine, presses. People have automated setups at home
BingoBoingo: HOLY SHIT IT CAN BE DONE. https://www.ammoland.com/2015/11/reloading-22lr-ammo/
mircea_popescu: i might be a little slow on the uptake, but what is tomahawk supposed to do to airstrip ?
asciilifeform: crater?
mircea_popescu: uh.
asciilifeform: same thing german bombs did to su airstrips in '41
mircea_popescu: so spend 2mn to make a pothole costs 300 bucks to fix ?
BingoBoingo: Well, duh
asciilifeform: if empty -- yes
asciilifeform: presumably this one had machines parked there
asciilifeform wasn't there , did not see
mircea_popescu: the idea is assad kept the planes on the tarmac ?
BingoBoingo: Anyways, never though to consider before today that rimfire might be reloadable. The moar you know.
mircea_popescu: and they were targetted with tomahawks ?
asciilifeform: supposedly!
BingoBoingo: Point of firing tomahawks is almsot never about what they do. It is about demonstrating that you go through the motions of doing things.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform oddly they didn't even shoot them down serbian style ?
BingoBoingo: Perhaps Russia flipped syrian air defense off?
mircea_popescu: you think ?
BingoBoingo: Surely Putin must know of American dog wagging rituals.
mircea_popescu: maga through waga ?
BingoBoingo: "Support our troops" took Dubya approval ratings from toilet to 80%+ Imagine what a war that ended would do!
mircea_popescu: ~nothing ?
BingoBoingo: Sure, but it would look like something.
mircea_popescu: more accurately, it'd look like what a thing that looked like something used to look.
BingoBoingo: Serious onion theory problem, but sure.
BingoBoingo: "Member when we had a white president who liked our country"
mircea_popescu: make the country of africa great again!
BingoBoingo: Rhodesian Pride!

a111: Logged on 2017-04-06 19:00 asciilifeform: in other noose, phuctor stats now ~unloadable
trinque: simple fix is to crap out a stats page static file at interval.
trinque: or we can just wait patiently as phuctor toils for the republic
Framedragger: yes indeed, however asciilifeform's initial objection (besides other less clear unwillingness) was the requirement for phuctor to show 'live data'. which imho is not necessary.
Framedragger: especially as regards *aggregated* stats (the index stats page) - so what if it lags for up to $interval
trinque: no such thing, only varying degrees of delayed data
Framedragger: something something lightspeed
mircea_popescu: the problem was that db waits for writes to read iirc.
Framedragger: current situation is that it does that for every web request..

trinque: there's already a function that renders that page...
mircea_popescu: as in, the www worker ?
asciilifeform: the use of python for frontend was a mistake. i did it to avoid having to write gpg disasmer from 0, and www liquishit from 0
asciilifeform: trinque: correct
asciilifeform: the problem is that there is simply not enough db 'bandwidth'
asciilifeform: to run it regularly and still be able to do anything else.
asciilifeform: postgres must die.
mircea_popescu: try mysql
asciilifeform: mno.
mircea_popescu: why!
asciilifeform has tried it in the past.
mircea_popescu: ah
asciilifeform: all sqltrons have same fundamental problem.
mircea_popescu: it DOES read while writing.
asciilifeform: pg also claims to. the knob did 0.
mircea_popescu: yes but i know it in fact does from you know, running trilema.
trinque: man, I've worked on pg databases that did nothing but write *and* read concurrently while sitting on a few hundred million rows
asciilifeform: who is writing 1000 writes / sec to trilema ?!
trinque: the politics of asciilifeform doth seep into the use of thing he doesn't like
trinque: no shame in that, but it's what that is
mircea_popescu whenever i do maintenances.
asciilifeform: trinque: one of these days you gotta expand on how you did it
trinque: successive aggregate calculation tables aside main table
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: db vacuum is not a sequence of writes for the purpose of subj
trinque: can even fire the updates inside the db with triggers, so everything is transactionally accurate
trinque: i.e. counts are always correct
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform no, i on occasion do multi-row updates. such as (lolz) recently when i made every entry of the 50k items in article db read the same thing.
mircea_popescu: these can take minutes, and the site isn't down during, at all.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: fwiw i was not able to load trilema while this was taking place.
asciilifeform: or was that after
mircea_popescu: pretty sure you weren't able to do it after i fucked it
asciilifeform: but ues
asciilifeform: yes
mircea_popescu: table got marked crashed, so all you could load would be the comments, sorta funny half-trilema
asciilifeform: formatting disk is fast!11
mircea_popescu: lel
asciilifeform: and so is 'set all row to c'
mircea_popescu: your updates consist of "set a to b" neh ?
asciilifeform: no, if only
mircea_popescu: then ?
mircea_popescu: set a to a*b ?
asciilifeform: observe how phuctor is structured
mircea_popescu: yes...
asciilifeform: new key entered? must find if we know its mods, any of them, already
asciilifeform: and for that matter, if key is new at all
mircea_popescu: this is index search not update is it ?
asciilifeform: and yes this can be done in bursts, as mircea_popescu described a while ago. but still gotta query whole db for mods
asciilifeform: maybe i misunderstand what means 'update' ?
trinque: two thoughts, beyond which a look at the actual thing would be needed. 1) queues and workers, always 2) db acts as your queue, schema reflects the stages of work
trinque: oh and 3) rendering www is a stage of work
trinque: doing all this in the request/response cycle will kill ya eventually
mircea_popescu: a db write is either insert or update ; finding out things is usually a select. it ~may~ be worthwhile to separate your reads from the writes, because it is technically possible (thopugh i'd hope unlikely) the db is dumb enough to put write locks in for something like "update x on y" even though it should be "select y if z then update x".
asciilifeform: ^ good idea
asciilifeform puts on list.
asciilifeform: unfortunately not doable without full rewrite.
mircea_popescu: this is ~what trinque said except his is more general.
asciilifeform: and yes trinque is right, it needs multiprocess queues, etc
asciilifeform: ergo depythonization
trinque: yar
trinque: only way to deal with the nonsense that one "must" respond to allcomers "now"
trinque: on the www
asciilifeform: another gotcha is that the process that does the actual crunching is written in c and communicates solely via the db. it spends ~3min a day reading, but then ~all day checking 'do we already have this factor? ' writing it, in short bursts. but each of these bursts must show up in rss.
asciilifeform: it would not do to have them all come out at once
trinque: could get me a pg connection and I could listen for pg_notify on a trigger of that table
asciilifeform: what's that do
asciilifeform: instead of rss?!
asciilifeform: mno. i refuse to marry sql db !!!
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform trilema ~delays~ rss, you udnerstasnd me ?
trinque: k so suffer
trinque: lol
trinque: yes, send me the bursts as they happen, don't render the RSS each time
trinque: from db
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: trilema doesn't potentially update 100 / day
mircea_popescu: no, you don't take my meaning.
mircea_popescu: go right ahead, produce a list of 5k rss items, THEN dole them out slowly.
asciilifeform: aah
mircea_popescu: have a rss queue, what.
asciilifeform: this - yes
trinque: this is www born nonsense that communication may only run one way, client can't listen for changes
asciilifeform: but again needs multithreaded proggy.
asciilifeform: that can actually do things without being prodded.
asciilifeform: and yes trinque

Framedragger: index-only scans allow to search in a table without 'touching', or 'locking' the actual rows (which may be simultaneously written-to, at the same time)
Framedragger: not afaik. these are to do with *reading* only. but trinque may chime in
asciilifeform: do they create chance of reading liquishit ?
Framedragger: materialised views - ditto regarding *reading only*
asciilifeform: what actually happens if you read a row being written
Framedragger: again, no, and as per ACID, no dirty reads (*not a bad thing here*)
Framedragger: hm.
asciilifeform: so why then is this not standard? why locks exist at all ?!
Framedragger refreshes self on https://www.postgresql.org/docs/9.1/static/transaction-iso.html
Framedragger: obtw which postgres version on phuctor asciilifeform? those two features not available in old versions. i don't remember which ver is in debian stable
trinque: materialized views are nothing more than a named query which stores its results in a table
trinque: and which you can refresh at interval
asciilifeform: a very recent one . but i'll have to get back to you Framedragger re : which
shinohai: lol Jason Dreyzehner "Head of Design" at buttpay followed me on twitter. Perhaps staring at T&A will be useful in making UI decisions.
trinque: they are useful for calculating aggregates as I was describing.
trinque: can cron the "refresh materialized view"
trinque: at sane interval
Framedragger: and ^ is effectively a cache of sorts (useful here)
asciilifeform: trinque: that sounds potentially useful. i'll have to investigate
trinque: these as queue tables for stages of work are also useful
asciilifeform: trinque: i don't like state
trinque: however it may be saner to completely divorce the algorithmic part from sql
trinque: just fart results into sql for wwwtron
asciilifeform: and i certainly don't want html in my db wtf
trinque: nobody said that
Framedragger: ...no, lol, the *results* are 'cached', you still regen html (but this is computationally trivial neh)
asciilifeform: aah yeah
trinque: so here's what relational db was supposed to be for, like bash originally had a 'supposed to be for'
trinque: it's a goddamned spreadsheet; you're supposed to compute elsewhere and then fart your results in there so somebody managerial can ask it questions
Framedragger: btw, i once screwed around with memoization in flask. iirc something can be done here as well, asciilifeform (it may be as trivial as adding a decorator before the function which handles GET request)
trinque: it grew beyond this scope the same reason bash did, or anything else that was originally a user interface
asciilifeform: Framedragger: i have it already
Framedragger: ah okok.
asciilifeform: Framedragger: problem is that the cache gotta expire some time.
mircea_popescu: trinque> materialized views are nothing more than a named query which stores its results in a table << this is a convenience not a speed-up
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i think he was proposing it as an ad hoc parallelism
mircea_popescu: shinohai you're prolly twitter famous.
trinque: it's a speedup for someone loading the stats page
trinque: and keeps him from reading the same table he's writing
trinque: thing's designed for parallelism yes, but of the same exact data in same spot is a big ask
trinque: move the data around
Framedragger: mircea_popescu: in materialized view, postgres can persist results of query in table-like form. so it *does* cache them; hence you can't say it's convenience only.
Framedragger: (when you query a mat view, data is returned directly from it, without touching the source live table)
Framedragger: (unless i've misunderstood horribly)
trinque: no, that is accurate.
mircea_popescu: might as well just make a proper cache table.
asciilifeform: trinque: another problem: i thought of having new submissions go to a queue, instead of main db. but! that would nuke the vey valuable 'paste in an unknown pgp key and know ~immediately~' feature.
mircea_popescu: is it immediate ?
asciilifeform: it is.
trinque: which is only a thing because www is 'daddy buy me a pony now!'
mircea_popescu: ah i always thought i should consult later
trinque: irc could just tell you when done
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: not the phuctoring!
asciilifeform: the 'do we know it'
mircea_popescu: ah ah ah
asciilifeform: yes.
mircea_popescu: yes that's very nice.
mircea_popescu: half the time saves me the wait.
asciilifeform: aha, nice, but not compatible with queueing.
trinque: so... lol. the other insanity people commit here is starting n pythons
asciilifeform: now i can make a separate queuer just for offline subs
trinque: because GIL or whatever they called the lock
asciilifeform: but now it means two wholly separate subsystems
mircea_popescu: trinque what'd you have him do it in, c ?
trinque: oh I proposed nothing for this fractal hell!
asciilifeform: i'd luvvv to know in what to redo this
trinque: haha, but hey sbcl is threaded and hunchentoot exists.
trinque: works great
asciilifeform: trinque: you wanna write gpg parser ? that handles all cases ?
asciilifeform: it dun exist
asciilifeform: in cl
asciilifeform: remember, it also has to handle arbitrary binary garbage without misbehaving.
mircea_popescu: yeah, fuzz tip
asciilifeform: and yes, originally phuctor front end was to be a cl proggy
asciilifeform: but turns out, the necessary work is gargantuan.
asciilifeform: if i had insisted, phuctor would still be a waited-for thing
asciilifeform: instead of working-but-complained-about.
mircea_popescu: open question whether cl would be fast enough. though i know there's some people itching to answer it.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: python certainly isn't
trinque: python's slower, and astonishingly so when threading
mircea_popescu: there is that.
mircea_popescu: are there any known documented and running cl-anythings more or less the size phuctor'd be ?

trinque: I'll close with the observation that asciilifeform's "fits in head" serves "build to iterate and throw away" very well.
asciilifeform: it does.

trinque: mircea_popescu: more clearly stated, I do not see a www as part of the algorithm of phuctor. it is one source of input where there could be many, and one output idem. with a clearly defined line between www and phuctor (even allowing for that www may require cached copies of phuctor data to operate properly), this gives you something you can nuke later and replace.
trinque: without this separation the idiocies of www will creep in, such as "must respond to user accurately and *now*"
trinque: meanwhile asciilifeform has no business adopting sql perversions as tools of thought; it would be demeaning
trinque: thus the notion of sticking someone in the www toilet, who manages commands of specific outputs and inputs, and above all keeps the shit in the shithouse
Framedragger: the 'www side can live on another server, even' degree of separation may be most easily achievable (given lack of resources to rewrite everything as of now) via pg notify / streaming replication. but maybe asciilifeform would insist that this is 'marrying the db'
trinque: and when gossipd comes around and asciilifeform can dispense with www entirely, dispense with shithouse *and* shithouse creature

asciilifeform: this is how winblowz ended up with bookcase-length api, people.
asciilifeform: 'haha we can always get rid of $item later', mmmnope.
asciilifeform: ~never happens.
mircea_popescu: it happens here, we got rid of all sorts of intermediate steps
Framedragger: asciilifeform: the parallel to "this is how winblowz blew up" breaks, imho, if you consider the splitting-off of www not as an addition, but as actual splitting-off, i.e., the box with phuctor on it may no longer have a www interface (just an option, i know you may be against it). if you picture it that way, it's more about modularisation vs. fixing and inflating a single monolithic thing.
Framedragger: (granted, these are just nice abstract words.)
shinohai: The conspiracy theories begin, Trump leaves the runways intact: https://pbs.twimg.com/media/C8z7QViXYAIrhtc.jpg
shinohai: Naturally, this was to appease Russia.
asciilifeform: intact ?! and somebody claims to see this from linked photo ??
shinohai: yup.
asciilifeform: Framedragger: now you're talking about having 2 boxes ? do you have an idea what the ~one~ costs ?
asciilifeform: ( ever read the s.nsa broadcast ? )
shinohai: Also, strikes were designed to create moar refugees which Trump could laugh at and turn away.
asciilifeform: lol
asciilifeform: Framedragger: think about how much complexity in the liquishit we call 'modern comp' comes from these attempted modularizations.
asciilifeform: 'oh gotta have clipboard be a separate process'
asciilifeform: 'oh disk cache gotta be separate from kernel'
Framedragger: asciilifeform: hold on. the idea was to separate reads from writes. having a separate box for www which gets updates from phuctor box, and having pg indices on it for quick search is *not* resource-intensive. i can cite examples but basically i'm quite certain that a <= 16gb memory box would suffice. phuctor box is 256 gigs yes, but it does *so much more*.
asciilifeform: Framedragger: why are you regarding the added complexity (100x what i have now!) as 'free' ?
Framedragger: of course being able to point to a working prototype would do so much more than arguments. unfortunately that would most likely require the needed modifications on the phuctor box, so a bit of chicken-and-egg.
asciilifeform: and the work of shepherding 2+ machines.
asciilifeform: not to mention their bandwidth.
Framedragger: bandwidth? bandwidth required for phuctor box would be "what's needed to send new rows to this other box".
Framedragger: bandwidth required for the www box would be ~same as what's currently needed from phuctor.
asciilifeform: Framedragger: you're talking about replication. replication, generally speaking, doesn't work. certainly not on posgres or any other free db, and certainly not without titanic sweat and inevitable increases in attack surface.
Framedragger: now, complexity management-wise.. maybe; having same person manage both boxes may not be best idea (and the alternative has its own advantages). but the current "phuctor is down, i don't know why, it's a black box" isn't the greatest example of current setup, either. (this may be a red herring, i'm not sure)
asciilifeform: understand, Framedragger, it is 600 lines, now.
Framedragger: well, i'm not that certain, but i am assuming you have more experience there with me. i will only remark that you merely need a *read slave*, not an actual mirror db which can handle writes and sync state. the syncing would go one way only. (hence the multiple references to pg streaming replication.)
Framedragger: (again tho, it's very easy to just point finger at features, so i'll gladly shut up)
asciilifeform: theoretically this can be done on one box. but -- for my enlightenment, Framedragger , describe to me :
asciilifeform: what happens when a user submits a gpg key ?
asciilifeform: under your hypothetical system
asciilifeform: where does it go ?
asciilifeform: does he IMMEDIATELY get a bookmarkable link based on the key's hash ? that he can come back to next hour, next day, next decade ? if so, how ??
asciilifeform: if the 'www db' isn't writable
Framedragger: asciilifeform: aha, right, that. i literally forgot about that lol. but wait, first we need to clear up the question about whether you want an immediate result to be shown to user upon gpg key submission.
asciilifeform: aaaahahahahahaha
Framedragger: are you absolutely unwilling to have a delay there?
asciilifeform: ABSOLUTELY
Framedragger: "but whyy"
asciilifeform: EVERYBODY thinks they're soooo much cleverer than dumb old asciilifeform
Framedragger: because gotta serve all the our democracy right here and now?
asciilifeform: 'i can make it BETTER, FASTER, STRONGER!1111'
asciilifeform: 'but does it do the same job ?' 'ummmmm didn't think of it'
asciilifeform: Framedragger: it ain't about 'demoocracy', it is about actually doing the job
asciilifeform: the job where it takes you from a base64 gpg key you found on some godforsaken usenet post, to a permanent link in phuctor
asciilifeform: which, note, replaces, e.g., sks and other heathen idiocies.
Framedragger: hold on, hold on. first of all, regarding the permalink: you can have this anyway, because the hash is computed in python anyway (i ~recall the procedure that you once gave me). so,
Framedragger: you can give permalink to user on the www read-only box.
asciilifeform: it isn't merely 'hash is computed', it shows if anyone else at any point in history ever had the mods.
asciilifeform: including the guy who submitted 5 seconds ago.
asciilifeform: think about this last part.
asciilifeform: 'but asciilifeform ! real roquefort is soooo expensive ! let's replace SOME of it with petro-roquefort'
asciilifeform: no pasaran.
Framedragger: yes that's the tricky part. my natural answer to that would be to "drop it, have user be able to come back right away - to a permalink - but results only displayed when the upstream db actually processes and inserts the new entry. (this entry would then get fed into the slave via streaming replication)"
Framedragger: however, you won't agree to drop it, i take it.
asciilifeform: aha.
Framedragger: fuckety fuck
asciilifeform: what i'ma have to do, eventually, is to replace all of the idiocy. ditch the python, ditch the sql.
asciilifeform: custom (bitwise, and using mmap) db, with fixed-length fields.
asciilifeform: and O(1) access.
asciilifeform: but this won't be happening today.
CompanionCube: would phuctor be ada-ized?
asciilifeform: CompanionCube: inevitably
asciilifeform: it's the only serious long-term pill.
Framedragger: alright. i will grant you that the end system wouldn't be "oh so elegantly simple", because you would have to have a submission queue (maybe something that trinque had in mind). user submits key; gets permalink (immediately); meanwhile key gets sent to master (immediately), and master puts it into "to be inserted" queue. under normal loads, the insertion happens ~immediately,
Framedragger: and you get your 5 seconds. if the db is loaded, it gets inserted "fast", and user is able to see results upon refresh (because when it gets inserted, update gets immediately sent to slave via trigger rule.)
asciilifeform: Framedragger: this is quite similar to what already happens.
asciilifeform: with the difference that the queueing takes place inside pg
asciilifeform: and so 'looks slow'
Framedragger: can you not picture this setup with a read-only slave, with a *separate* "give new key to master" interface (separate so that the replication doesn't become write-write but stays write-read)
asciilifeform: i can easily picture it . it is how commercial ( http://btcbase.org/log/2017-02-19#1615434 ) db work. google et al. i am specifically uninterested in taking that approach.☝︎
a111: Logged on 2017-02-19 03:54 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)
Framedragger: (again, i did realise that the "oh very simple" angle isn't strong here)
asciilifeform: because the CORRECT answer is a sane db that isn't written by motherfucking wreckers
asciilifeform: and isn't slow as molasses.
asciilifeform: and knows how to read while writing without stepping on own shoelaces.
asciilifeform: the disk can push 150 MB/sec. if the db cannot do 150 MB/sec, it is retarded and must burn.
asciilifeform: it is -- quite obviously -- doing work that dun need doing. behind the curtain. 'for your own good.'
asciilifeform: see the userland fs thread, with the rebalances.
Framedragger: you are presenting a false dichotomy consisting of {current phuctor; $multi-mil db setup}. you propose to escape it by writing new db as the only way to escape it.
Framedragger: people are telling you that there is a setup which is better but not multi-mil. it does require planning, etc.
Framedragger: it was retarded of me to just throw keywords at you saying "that would do it".
asciilifeform: i am quite aware that 'software industry' today consists of multiple layers of shit sandwitch, each and every one of which consisted of 'great optimization! all you gotta do is add this 5000 lines of code and 40 layer tree of state that gotta be kept consistent'
asciilifeform: asciilifeform specifically does not do this.
Framedragger quite certain he would get erection from that small c program in phuctor, and that is great
asciilifeform: having two databases sounds superficially like a great thing, until you realize that the read-write thing applies just the same to the 'front' one as it does to the existing single.
asciilifeform: you are STILL stuck writing new submissions to the front.
asciilifeform: understand, if i paste a gpg key into phuctor, and cannot then ~immediately~ link to it in-chan -- phuctor is broken!!
Framedragger: but you no longer reading from the front (in the sense of sql queries), which in db-land is good for performance.
Framedragger: are*
asciilifeform: every url fetch reads.
asciilifeform: and from where, do you think, it reads ?
Framedragger: it reads from the cached copy, damnit.
asciilifeform: and the cached copy is updated when ?
Framedragger: it is updated in ~realtime from the master via streaming replication
Framedragger: which means, "whenever new row, send it off [without having to execute a new select query etc]"
asciilifeform: again, every key submission potentially affects multiple rows.
asciilifeform: because a key breaks down into moduli, fingerprints, and -- potentially -- known factors
Framedragger: that is fine, and a postgres trigger would mean that any affected row gets sent off. i do understand that new-key-addition is a db-intense process, of course
asciilifeform: and if ANY of these exist previously, incl. from a submission 5 seconds ago -- they gotta be correctly linked
asciilifeform: instead of created.
trinque: http://btcbase.org/log/2017-04-07#1639899 << imma seriously start calling this russing over the issue if we get one more of y'all in here doing that.☝︎

Framedragger: (just so i don't feel like just throwing random verbiage at you, what i mean is something like `CREATE TRIGGER setup_send_update AFTER INSERT OR UPDATE ON phuctor FOR EACH ROW EXECUTE PROCEDURE send_update);` - it wouldn't be hard to try.)
asciilifeform: which issue trinque
trinque: my proposal was to put your turdworks in a box
trinque: not let them seep all through
asciilifeform: trinque: sorta what Framedragger was discussing, neh
trinque: you *have* turdworks by your own decision to use www (which I think is reasonable)
asciilifeform: i don't presently see them as cleanly cuttable apart
asciilifeform: while retaining what i see as the non-negotiable features.
asciilifeform: (immediate linkability of newly-pasted-in gpg key.)
asciilifeform: this is not even to mention the complexity cost.
asciilifeform: or the cost of getting a 2nd box with five-nines uptime.
asciilifeform: and if you think rewriting 600 ln. of python is painful -- try rewriting 60,000. which is what is being proposed : to give asciilifeform 60,000 lines to later inevitably rewrite.
Framedragger: asciilifeform: fwiw i'd be willing to set up a read slave on 16gb dedi box (siphnos, unmetered connection) for fri, that part is not hard imho. sure, if/when decision would be made to *actually expose it to everyone*, things could be moved (and maintained by someone else), but this is one way to prototype things.
Framedragger: rewriting 60000 lines for this.. how does that follow..
asciilifeform: at one point i thought that giving it to other folx could be a reasonable thing. now i ~definitely~ do not
asciilifeform: given that i found that various otherwise reasonable people are willing to make all kinds of compromises
asciilifeform: that i do ~not~ support
asciilifeform: ( to dispense, for instance, with immediate linkability )
asciilifeform: the apparent willingness of, e.g., Framedragger , to introduce petro-cheese is quite depressing
trinque catches up on thread, 1sec
Framedragger: if people decide to compromise on things after an agreement was made not to, i mean.. fuck those people
Framedragger: asciilifeform: yeah i said some stupid things, apologies for depressing you there
asciilifeform: the performance wins described in this thread by Framedragger and trinque can only come at the cost of 1) massive increase in complexity, and in particularly state 2) loss of immediate linkability of freshly pasted keys.
asciilifeform: per my current understanding.
trinque: I find the notion that asciilifeform here is the only guy capable of adhering to own standards lulzy
trinque: if so dispense with republic, bring on teh stalin
asciilifeform: trinque: speaking strictly of this particular problem.
trinque: asciilifeform: you did not seriously cogitate on anything I sad for more than 5 seconds
trinque: *said
asciilifeform: i must point out, that i am unwilling to solve it by redefining the problem.
asciilifeform: 'oh you don't need immediate links!'
trinque: ^ find reference for this pls
asciilifeform: the dual db thing
asciilifeform: it flows inescapably from it
trinque: so you're talking to me about Framedragger's whatever, k
asciilifeform: this in re the dual-db optimization, yes
asciilifeform: trinque has entirely different algo ?
Framedragger: (i'll just note that the *permalink* can be derived on the slave box, and nowhere did i say something contradicting this)
trinque: I refuse to retype it
asciilifeform: trinque: i'ma reread the trinque lines from log.
asciilifeform: see if missed something.
asciilifeform: but meanwhile i also must address the 'stable boy' thing
asciilifeform: imho to even suggest such a thing, betrays a very serious misunderstanding of the concept. dumb humans are in every respect an inferior version of the machine. the only thing more agonizing than programming comp, is programming dumb humans.
asciilifeform: i do not need 'stable boy' for anything. there is no conceivable room, imho, for any such thing in any of my systems.
trinque: I'm not defending that because it's not what I said.
asciilifeform: maybe i misunderstood the idea ? what was meant ?
trinque: you conflate the paper delivery kid with the printing works and the writers and, and, at your own design
asciilifeform: this presupposes that the task can be cut.
asciilifeform: into 'paperboy' and 'writer'.
asciilifeform: maybe -- could. but i do not see how it can be done without losing something important.
asciilifeform: and yes, if you were to throw out the realtime query ability, you could run phuctor as a 'newspaper'.
asciilifeform: even, hell, distribute printed edition, like telephone book.
asciilifeform: but that ain't a solution imho.
asciilifeform: it's a petrocheese.
asciilifeform: and a ~very~ serious, imho, surrender. 'oh, this thing that you could do whenever you wanted in 2013? can't do it no moar.'
Framedragger: last note before i fuck off: the "user submits key; gets permalink (immediately); meanwhile key gets sent to master (immediately), and master puts it into "to be inserted" queue" + "all inserted + updated rows get sent back to slave via streaming replication and pg trigger" doesn't look like petrocheese to me. is all.
asciilifeform: Framedragger: it means that the user doesn't immediately learn the 'do we know this key?' answer.
asciilifeform: srsly.
asciilifeform: not hard concept.
trinque: the fuck is hard about whether a unique constraint bumped into something
asciilifeform: trinque: expand plox
trinque: you have a keys table, factors table, factors has a unique constraint on value column of factors, there is a join table called key_factor which joins key and factor
asciilifeform: factors get created by the werker process (in c, and unable to do anything whatsoever other than to search for whether a particular factor already exists)
asciilifeform: do to the db, i mean.
asciilifeform: it handles 3 cases : new factor of old modulus that had some known factors; new factor of modulus that had no known factors; old factor of modulus that had some known factors.
asciilifeform: trinque: what happens if a unique constraint is violated ? afaik -- query eggogs
asciilifeform: is this in point of fact any faster than running a search and ensuring that there is no eggog query submitted ?
trinque: well one sec, so you're trying to establish relationship between keys and factors in the db, yes?
asciilifeform: right
trinque: the "unique" is just an index which yes eggogs if insert happens and is already present. the eggog is just a matter of how do you want to find out about this
jurov: coinbr public announcement: there are some stuck orders, and it came at worst possible time. During the weekend I should be able to fix.
trinque: can do also: select exists(select 1 from factors where value = ?);
trinque: where value is indexed
trinque: I'm of course shooting in the dark as to what happens when in what you have.
asciilifeform: trinque: can i , purely using sql query, force it to not attempt write ( and -- importantly -- to take no locks ! ) if an item already exists ?
trinque: insert into factors (val) values (3) where not exists (select 1 from factors where value = 3);
trinque: or thereabouts
asciilifeform: thing is, it also has to update the respective mod's factors indices array
asciilifeform: ( a factor belongs to ~one or more~ mods )
asciilifeform: it can potentially belong to 10,000,001 mods.
asciilifeform: for some of whom -- we may already know it, and have it in the indices
trinque: the insert statement can return its id to a calling update statement
trinque: one sec.
asciilifeform dusts off notebook, listens to trinque
trinque: array type in db or join table?
asciilifeform: array
asciilifeform: and hey iirc i posted entire db (11 GB or so!) here...
trinque: hm, shit I missed.
trinque: know mod IDs to update at this point?
asciilifeform: which point
trinque: does this query look up the mod IDs to append their factor arrays, or does your worker already know those
asciilifeform: knows
trinque: asciilifeform: http://p.bvulpes.com/pastes/XFgif/?raw=true

trinque: danielpbarron: let ya know
danielpbarron: file is 682M -- maybe that's too big?
trinque: got 10s of gigs over there free, nah
trinque: mod6 did some pretty big ones
danielpbarron: i was voiced obviously, but maybe deedbot had reconnected since then, and didn't see me as authed anymore?
shinohai: I was gonna say, all those trb artifacts were huge
danielpbarron: on a related note, which openbsd cds are specifically wanted? i did 5.5 cd1 because i have that pack opened already, and because the more useful cd2 (containing amd64) got damaged when i tried to remove it from one of my iMac G3s that wouldn't spit it back out (it also has ppc -- probably the arch of interest)
trinque: when we get it to work, all, far as I'm concerned
danielpbarron: i can do an unboxing video or something. i have 5.5 through 5.8 in original sealed packaging
danielpbarron: i even have the missprint 5.8 and the replacement cd they sent afterwards
danielpbarron: will be interesting to see if my unopened 5.5 cd1 is the same bitwise as the one in the above mentioned deed
danielpbarron: got them from different stores even
trinque: I'm getting on the previous batch of deeds that I have insufficient funds, which is bullshit.
trinque: so, gotta untwist that
shinohai: deedbot got gabriel_ladell'ed
trinque: then also danielpbarron this project with ISOs might take rewriting the downloader, will have to look at it
trinque: shinohai: loool
trinque: danielpbarron: lets work on getting those in next week
danielpbarron: ok
danielpbarron: also please let me know if my format was right. I emulated mod6's thing but maybe there's a better way to do it with iso
danielpbarron: tar.gz only compressed it from ~708 to 682
trinque: curl $url | head -n 30 looks fine
danielpbarron: and is it redundant to include sha512 on both the tar.gz and the iso?
trinque: danielpbarron: seems ok, maybe my tar or gzip has the HIV
danielpbarron: yeh

Framedragger: mircea_popescu: i thought one of the parts was a c proggy. quite certain it is, asciilifeform mentioned it multiple times. python is the web backend afaik

a111: Logged on 2017-04-07 16:34 asciilifeform: imho to even suggest such a thing, betrays a very serious misunderstanding of the concept. dumb humans are in every respect an inferior version of the machine. the only thing more agonizing than programming comp, is programming dumb humans.
Framedragger: mircea_popescu: re "nothing here" the idea would be that upon user submitting gpg key, page reloads *instantly* (vs. near-instant page load on current phuctor - reloads only after key inserted into db), shows permalink and "waiting for insertion" msg; html could have property to auto refresh every second until master responds with any links to other keys. but i understand asciilifeform's reasons against this
mircea_popescu: you may snag some decidability issues (depending exactly how unique id is generated -- remember keys are not unique in this sense, kinda the point of phuctor)\
asciilifeform: http://btcbase.org/log/2017-04-07#1640141 << Framedragger is correct, there is a wwwtronic (and rfc4880-parsing) front end, that is in python; and a wholly separate werker that actually does the number crunching, in c.☝︎

asciilifeform: ( wouldn't be the first time )
mircea_popescu: it's important to de-equivocate dumb ; there's two kinds of machine that may be casually referred to as dumb : one that is very slow (eg, z80) / one that is very demanding on the programmer (eg, windows). good programmer wouldn't really call z80 dumb, bad programmer wouldn't really call windows dumb. this directly translates to humans, there's a kind of dumb the incompetent identify mostly disjunct from the kind of dumb the c
mircea_popescu: ompetent identify.
asciilifeform: slow-but-guaranteed-correct-answer is not dumb at all.
asciilifeform: ( could be impractical -- we all die before answer is emitted -- but that ain't 'dumb' )
asciilifeform: and yes i'm familiar with 'prussian' model of command, where 'a good soldier follows directions, doesn't sit and think' etc.
asciilifeform: it has a point.
asciilifeform: but imho the logical end of it is proper mechanization.
mircea_popescu: it all depends.
mircea_popescu: no, let's also de-equivocate think. there's two kinds of think, one's a forge/reflow/examination of trees resulting in analytical consumption of inputs with actionable outputs guaranteed ; the other is a neurotic behaviour perhaps best described as spinning, whereby specific emotional triggers / detriggers are visited in succession. the prussian model was never concerned with the former in any sense, but merely aimed to elimi
mircea_popescu: nate the latter ; under the (broadly correct) assumption that a quiet head works and a loud one doesn't. this isn't so different from, eg, buddhism.
mircea_popescu: as a general rule, people who can't produce genus/difference definitions for all the symbols in their own output are better off not thinking yet, as what they think thinking is isn't.
mircea_popescu: to go back to the machine model : until you're running symbolix, don't pretend like you're computing.
mircea_popescu: and to link it to blogging : the point of blogging (daily!) is that it forces an easy and painless transition from type 2 to type 1 in the heads of the practitioners. there's no promise as to the rate of conversion, but then again that's the best you can get for painless.
asciilifeform: this is reminiscent of marksmanship training, where trainee fights his idiot reflexes -- overaiming, oversqueezing
Framedragger builds hasty internal map of 'mp type 1 is kahneman type 2, mp type 2 is kahneman type 1'..
mircea_popescu: quite.
asciilifeform: and, from what i read -- of pilotage school also
mircea_popescu: which is why prussians came up with it. fought a helluva lot of recruit idiocy to arrive to the concept.
asciilifeform: ( according to the b00k, most folx die in airplane because of ~thinking~ )
mircea_popescu: Framedragger works.
mircea_popescu: if you're wondering, mp doesn't use the reference because the introduction de novo is a paragraph, the discussion of differentiation is a book.
Framedragger: yeah this is nicely self-contained
mircea_popescu: moreover wtf was he doing he sorted them backwards!
mircea_popescu: SORTING is the most important activity of the human brain. and you should see how much trouble well experienced slavegirls encounter when their words are interpreted on a first-priority basis.
mircea_popescu: "you couldn't have meant that because if you did mean it you'd have lead with it."
Framedragger: well historically in terms of planet timespan, type 1 got our asses to here..
mircea_popescu: so ?
Framedragger: yeah i see.
mircea_popescu: you propose we also sort planets with earth in center and main sequence stars from the sun onwards ?
Framedragger: also just to note, (obvs) type 1 (mp-type 2) has its merits and is important. but yeah i got your point
mircea_popescu: expand on these merits when you will.
Framedragger: ok, shall try later on, deferring for now.
Framedragger: but you don't see merits of heuristics and biases in humans?
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform often happens, which is why people insist they follow manual and procedure, which is what opens the whole thing up to mp going http://btcbase.org/log/2015-08-24#1250375☝︎

mircea_popescu: Framedragger neither of those fall under mp1.
Framedragger: they are mp2, the one with lower ordinal, and my point was that it's still hella useful. can you employ the methodical and analytical mp1 when you touch hand on hot stove? no time to route through brain.

mircea_popescu: Framedragger reflexes are not a proper subject of this discussion, seeing how we're discussing "thinking" as in, brain phenomena.
Framedragger: (but i'm probably conflating things too much, maybe you'd call such reactions something else)
mircea_popescu: i would.
Framedragger: kk. yeah i won't argue further without doing some decent mp1 thought here :)
mircea_popescu: anyway. heuristics are not involved in watching daytime drama, which is what the type 2 described above is.
trinque: comes from the spine doesn't it, or even more locally
mircea_popescu: all those shots of people both facing the camera grimacing ? 18month old baby fare.
mircea_popescu: trinque yeah, a proper reflex closes in the spine. there's opf course conditioned reflexes which close in the "brain", but not a very conscious part thereof afawk
mircea_popescu: it's iffy, human body comes out of the hackpile, inc. labs
Framedragger: i wonder how you'd categorise the 'affect heuristic' as kahneman et al. call it.; i.e., when you make decision with at least partial influence of current emotion. it's very *fast* (thereby falls under kahneman's type 1). ridiculous scenario where it's useful: i'm chased by tiger, see two paths in woods, one has sign 'DANGER' in red, i don't have time to even parse word without making decision,
Framedragger: i just decide to go with the other path.
Framedragger: horrible primitive heuristic, but useful.
mircea_popescu: i would characterise it as "they got confused on their own terminology and backported orphan chains into the story"
Framedragger: (probably bad example.)

pete_dushenski: BingoBoingo: always depends on car!
pete_dushenski: Framedragger: new command added to directory yesterday, just fyi :)
pete_dushenski: also !~tits added!
trinque: mircea_popescu: https://www.postgresql.org/docs/current/static/mvcc-intro.html << "Internally, data consistency is maintained by using a multiversion model (Multiversion Concurrency Control, MVCC). This means that each SQL statement sees a snapshot of data (a database version) as it was some time ago, regardless of the current state of the underlying data. This prevents statements from viewing inconsistent
BingoBoingo amazed by fake news wank over Assad dropped sarin vs. Assad bomed, sarin happened to be in bomb's way
trinque: data produced by concurrent transactions performing updates on the same data rows, providing transaction isolation for each database session. MVCC, by eschewing the locking methodologies of traditional database systems, minimizes lock contention in order to allow for reasonable performance in multiuser environments."
mircea_popescu: i am not advanced enough for this
trinque: and "reading never blocks writing and writing never blocks reading"
BingoBoingo: Trump needed contrast to Obama/watches too much television, and needs a pretext to come into friendship with Putin honestly if MWGA is to happen

trinque: the thing forks the database upon each write and reads happen in the snapshot of state they began
mircea_popescu: trinque so an insert if not exists where a = b does NOT block a different select while it checks the where clause ?
trinque: absolutely not per my understanding of pg
mircea_popescu: alright.
trinque: two writes may
trinque: n writes.
mircea_popescu: wait
trinque: if you and I are trying to update the same table your update may block until after mine
pete_dushenski: shinohai: cheers :) also (belatedly) wd on lordship nomination! very well deserved
mircea_popescu: suppose S = "insert if not exists where a = b" prototype. suppose S takes time T composed of ti for the insert and tw for the where clause. Suppose thjere's 5 concurrent S presented to db, S1..S5. are you saying that IN NO CASE will Sn wait for a Twi where i != n ?
mircea_popescu: ie, s5 is NOT waiting to do EITHER its insert or its where check because S3 is doing EITHER its insert or its where check ?
shinohai: ty pete_dushenski ... gonna buy me a celebratory mercedes? :)
pete_dushenski: haha well mine is for sale... could always gift. can you give me a tax receipt for your needy cause ?
shinohai: Hmmm .... the foundation for the preservation of slutty tits ?
pete_dushenski: it'd be discriminatory NOT to give to that cause!
shinohai: And selling the mercedes! O.o
pete_dushenski: making room for more nazisleds ;)
shinohai: Oh ha .... werd
pete_dushenski: but the replacement is still hush-hush. stay tuned.
trinque: mircea_popescu: reads block nobody, never block. I understand the where clause of an insert statement to be a condition on a read query that gets fed into a write, just as my "common table expressions" ('with' keyword) feed into each other.
mircea_popescu: aite.
BingoBoingo awaits pete_dushenski's eventual conversion to plasticar and panel replacement that requires only a good flat head screwdriver
trinque: http://p.bvulpes.com/pastes/VBOWD/?raw=true << values part of an insert is a table literal
trinque: equiv to select 1,2,3 ; and you can use that if you like

BingoBoingo: Bah
trinque: by the nato precedent set by turkey, I'd expect russia can down an american plane or two without risking a nuclear exchange, eh?

pete_dushenski: trinque: russia could down 1/16 us aircraft carrieres without risking nukage.

pete_dushenski: https://medium.com/@samcole_74219/asicboost-655a73d48ae4 << more of the same sadness as above. strap double gas mask on for this one. 'sam cole founder of kncminer' is functionally illiterate.
pete_dushenski: ben_vulpes: mk.
pete_dushenski: "Well I was a major miner for over two years and I lost out because other people had a lower CoC. I had to say goodbye to a business that I built from the ground up. I’m not calling fowl play and throwing my toys out of the pram. Its called business and its what enables people to invest in bitcoin." ~sam cole (tm). so fowl. so chicken. cluck cluck!
pete_dushenski: it can't really be any wonder that knc sunk. not after reading this.
