mircea_popescu: "A few years ago, there used to be a very easy way to optimize code. If you found out that your processor-heavy code was running a bit slower than you wanted it to, the simple solution was just to wait for the next hardware iteration, which would magically amp up the clock rate on the CPUs and your app would suddenly run faster."

phf: asciilifeform: if i have procedure foo(x in; y out), and i'm calling it with foo(a, a); is it up to procedure to ensure that y is not clobbered before x is used, or is it more that you don't call with a same variable in in and out?
asciilifeform: phf: perfectly legal to call with same variable as in and out.
asciilifeform: you will notice that it is why there is scratch var Ni in the shifters.

BingoBoingo: ^ Biggest announcement in agriCulture this year!
mircea_popescu: o.O
BingoBoingo: !~later tell shinohai http://www.thedrinkingrecord.com/2017/04/27/introducing-the-tmsr-agricultural-supremacy-project/ << This will offer content to feed your TMSR Journal Of Whoreticulture, pls to consider accelerating your timeline for the venue opening
jhvh1: BingoBoingo: The operation succeeded.
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo did i tell you about that time i grew the world's saddest eggplants ?
BingoBoingo: No you haven't
mircea_popescu: http://trilema.com/2012/test-de-cultura-botanica-iii/
mircea_popescu: http://trilema.com/2011/test-de-cultura-botanica/ << these are artichoke babies. they grew up great.
BingoBoingo: I do remember the artichokes
mod6: <+mircea_popescu> BingoBoingo did i tell you about that time i grew the world's saddest eggplants ? << lol. last year, I got 1 out of like 3-4 plants. it looked more like a purple carrot.
mircea_popescu: yeah eggplant is hard.
BingoBoingo: mod6: Well good category to start is probably tomatoes. Growing process is well documented. As far north as you are "Early Girl" or similar may be your cultivar of choice.
shinohai: ty BingoBoingo
mircea_popescu: yeah.
mircea_popescu: growing epic tomatoes is possibly the most accessible gardening.
BingoBoingo: We had an inch and a half of rain Wednesday night and are looking at 5 inches over the weekend, so the Beefmaster was copiously fed in anticipation
mircea_popescu: i had a monsoon here four days a week since mid april.
mircea_popescu: it looks like at least 10cm rainfall.
BingoBoingo: Sweet corn and summer squash are other good candidates to consider, Lords are advised to consult their county fair's premium book to guide crop selection.
mircea_popescu: you know they don't do that here ;/
mircea_popescu: they have an onion festival.
BingoBoingo: I am pretty sure I mentioned nearby horseradish festival
mircea_popescu: o, how about chet's baby squash ?
mircea_popescu: http://trilema.com/2012/micrototul/
BingoBoingo: very nice baby squash
BingoBoingo: Anyways the pest on the tomatoe leaf looks like some sort of scale insect of which there are many
mircea_popescu: aha. funny as all shit, one egg's growinfg legs.
mod6: BingoBoingo: oh yeah, my tomatoes do well. i did 22 plants 2 years ago, 10 last year. im most fond of the cherries & romas.
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: Persistent pest everywhere, some are defeated by soaps, others carbaryl
mod6: it's been raining non-stop here too.
BingoBoingo: mod6: At many fairs, those are two seperate categories you can enter
mod6: the mn statefair has some /large/ specimens
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo in fairness i was never serious about it in the productive sense, more like an enjoyable passtime.
mircea_popescu: naked girls kneeling in the dirt and such,
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: Well, there is also that. Not necessarily incompatible, naked girls can also kneel in dirt to pick the bounty.
mircea_popescu: yeah, just, eg never bothered to kill those guys.
BingoBoingo: At some point tomatoe grows to the point where it takes a substantial number of pests to be a problem. Anyways usually soapy water usually suffocates them and suds are generally safe for naked girlies
BingoBoingo: Few garden pest usually demand organophasphates to be oppressed.
mircea_popescu: i couldn't even bring myself to salt the slugs.
mircea_popescu: thenb again they mostly stuck to compost pile.
BingoBoingo: But when the farmers harvest the corn and the now hungry stinkbugs come, using nerve agents against them is fair
BingoBoingo: A good compost pile can be a wonderful diversion in that way
mircea_popescu: yeah srslty.
BingoBoingo: slugs and snails usually don't really care much for freshness
mircea_popescu: yea
BingoBoingo: Anyways, idea of the project is that any lord who enjoys this recreation has ready opportunity to demonstrate their ability to dominate wherever they decide to turn their focus if they so choose

mircea_popescu: aaron toponce (goes by eightyeight in that chat) has possibly the lulziest "gpg key signing" item i saw : https://pthree.org/my-pgp-key-signing-policy/
mircea_popescu: 1. let's make "government issued id" the underpinning of the pgp web of trust, because totally, what could be better or above the fiat empire du jour ; 2. key ids. because really.
mircea_popescu: and this is symptomatic of the sheer confusion OF EVERYTHING these fuckwits live in. "Personally, I will only sign keys if I have done at least casual checking or very careful checking. I will not sign a key if I have not verified the ownership of the key. This weakens the Web of Trust." and then eats up weak hashes and government paper. because why the fuck not, PERFECTLY coherent with his "careful" stance.
mircea_popescu: anyway. anyone seen that tox thing ? ☟︎
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform seems like we possibly have a problem here : http://phuctor.nosuchlabs.com/gpgkey/0429881B753F39E9FE2573E856C1CEA1AE91EF781A8C2741FB2ADFB2F51313F4

mircea_popescu: in any case it should have been, it's ancient, dude keeps signing others with it etc. "strong set" as they call it.
asciilifeform: can argue that should've been. but wasn't. or it'd show 2016 date.
mircea_popescu: yeah. weird.
asciilifeform: oooh hey, hey, http://phuctor.nosuchlabs.com/gpgkey/1BB77329C5FE26A5FABBDAA7FC7DC383BF20B6E528D0FE94F5D1E5C77B041ED1 .

mircea_popescu: aah
mircea_popescu: for a moment there i almost thought there's something wrong with phuctor.
mircea_popescu: check that out, "oalug steering committee"
asciilifeform: plenty of room for improvement in phuctor.
asciilifeform: for instance : 0 orc glyph-bearing keys.
asciilifeform: needs full depythonization, it does.
mircea_popescu: really should just be stripped from C field.
asciilifeform: can't strip, hash won't match.
asciilifeform: and it happens long before it hits the c.
asciilifeform: python per se actually barfs on encounter.
mircea_popescu: heh
asciilifeform: ( because it -- or at least python2 -- is married to 'string is 7bit ascii' )
asciilifeform: ( python3 was pushed as 'fix' for this, but -- as iirc described in mircea_popescu's www -- never actually worked. )
mircea_popescu: i've been contemplating the point of whether more than 1 in 1000 humans actually have need for electrical power. ☟︎
mircea_popescu: to my shock the answer's not quite as directly obvious as one'd like.
BingoBoingo: The only people really served by mass electrification are marketers
mircea_popescu: how did that go, electricity + power of soviets = socialism ?

mircea_popescu: and teh juju worship'd come out just as good.
BingoBoingo: That's as a worshipper. As a peddler of a particular juju, electricity helps to sell more jujidgets
mircea_popescu: but it's exactly the same as the rent market : yes, you sell more jujidgets but guess what ? so does everyone else. so now you HAVE TO sell more jujidgets.
BingoBoingo: Or Jewidgets, however the spelling works out
mircea_popescu: electricity is not actually serving you, much like the idea of "stand on tiptoes to see better at ball game" doesn't actually serve you.
mircea_popescu: all you get is... "well now you GOTTA stand on tiptoes, sucker"
BingoBoingo: Well it's inflation. So what about actual value? Gotta march to 120k classroom monitor!
BingoBoingo: So tiptoes on stacked jujewgidgets all because tv said so.

a111: Logged on 2017-04-28 03:34 mircea_popescu: anyway. anyone seen that tox thing ?
mircea_popescu: this is so totally novel a situation ;/
Framedragger: this one recent time, an actually decent outside person reported a fixable vuln in their craptography https://github.com/TokTok/c-toxcore/issues/426
Framedragger: folks went defensive. very barf
Framedragger actually went on their channel (whichever it was, they have like tox-talk and -dev and just tox or sth) to see if any clever people. yes, one iphy (also on ##crypto) understood that (1) it was an issue and (2) these other 'core member' fuckwits were destroying any goodwill
Framedragger: i think in the end they managed to address the fact that they should address it
Framedragger: that exhausted my curiosity, tho
mircea_popescu: but then he promotes "the noise protocol framework"
mircea_popescu: which is one synergy short of a buzz cut.
Framedragger: here i have a problem because i don't think noise is necessarily bad; or that e.g. signal protocol is necessarily bad (yes names are barf'y)
Framedragger: i mean, 'compared to what'. certainly not compared to asciilifeform's actually-fucking-constant-time crypto architecture
mircea_popescu: does it not seem to you that a protocol framework (ie, some sort of method for "creating" or "tailoring" protocols) is broken in the head ?
Framedragger: oops by 'certainly not' i meant 'certainly pos compared to alf's
Framedragger: hold on, that does sound retarted
mircea_popescu: even if we don't consider practical experience (hey, automake tried to be a makefile framework yes ?) and only focus on the theoretical aspect
Framedragger: ah. well, i thought it was a set of lower-level crypto interfaces on which you could build higher-level protocols
Framedragger: naming is shit, yeah
Framedragger: i'm not convinced it's a very bad idea. i'm not advocating such 'we love complexiti' architecture of course
mircea_popescu: to put it another way : when a fundamental problem is well understood enough to approach conclusively, and yet the approach eschews creating a standard in favour of preserving choice, the signal is that the problem was NOT actually understood enough.
mircea_popescu: ie, a "protocol framework" is definitionally premature.
mircea_popescu: either you have a protocol standard, or else you have more prototyping work to do.
mircea_popescu: (at least that's what i parse the words to mean, framework = "standard with a lot of user serviceable knobs")
Framedragger: i think by 'you can create protocol' they meant a high degree of abstraction kind of protocol. e.g. stateless or stateful transport security, etc.
mircea_popescu: and who's going to cover the edge case interplay three feet deep ?
Framedragger: makes sense to have core building blocks. i see protocol framework here in the sense of openssl being a protocol framework
mircea_popescu: openssl is woefully insecure!
Framedragger: yesyes, many issues, sure. and in regards to openssl, you know what i meant, the interfaces that the openssl library exports to its operators
mircea_popescu: the... what ?
Framedragger: the fact that interfaces implement literal crap in the case of openssl is of course not the best advertising for a simile...
mircea_popescu: you mean that it runs on linux and consequently you can process its output ?
Framedragger: no, i mean that you can embed it in your $crapchatapp and not worry about IV reuse
mircea_popescu: the part that enables you to not worry thus is in your head not in the openssl.
Framedragger: (you can use more general methods which abstract away the internals)
mircea_popescu: i'd fucking worry. and i'd have great cause to worry, too.
Framedragger: because of openssl or because of this abstraction? ☟︎
mircea_popescu: because nobody actually looked at all the edge cases, on the assumption that they were only generated through the interplay of idle abstraction and will "never be encountered in practice"
mircea_popescu: which is of course what your crapapp will do post haste, if you've any luck.
Framedragger: i thought you were *for* a crypto library where operator would not have to use (by which i mean abuse, because he will) low level primitives?
Framedragger: damn i need semantic search on logs
mircea_popescu: let's revisit the early cs classes. if you have state machine A, with 4 states, and state machine B, with 5 states, the composed mechanism AB has... 20 states.
mircea_popescu: abstraction has this cost, that if i have to maintain AB i spend twice the time if i maintained an A and a B.
trinque: http://btcbase.org/log/2017-04-28#1649427 << got some needed hardware to pick up at the post office tomorrow, and a bunch of code to deploy to it, then testing. ☝︎
a111: Logged on 2017-04-28 20:36 mircea_popescu: yeah, how's the whole dwallet coming along ?
trinque: questions remain on how best to handle incoming deposits; I hear ben_vulpes might be working on something to help
mircea_popescu: if your protocol is, for the sake of this argument, a state machine with about 150k states, and then the "framework" is a further state machine with about a half million or so states, your protocol framework escapes security as a fundamental property of it.
mircea_popescu: trinque epic.
ben_vulpes: trinque: output dumper's not entirely done but closeish
ben_vulpes: gotta back out the c++11 work, implement a predicate and test the shit out of it
Framedragger: mircea_popescu: no disagreement. i honestly don't know re framework, i do think they just abused a term (which isn't a great signal)
Framedragger: mircea_popescu: even then, yes, explosion of statespace, sure
mircea_popescu: see, naggum's (correct) advice in that piece ##crypto barfed at was... MAKE YOUR TAILORED CL!
mircea_popescu: not "download the latest cl framework". that's the opposite approach/.
ben_vulpes: current thinking in re testing dumper is to solo mine and test but that's a not-small pile of test harness to write
mircea_popescu: even more directly : every kid who ever tried maintaining a machine, be it linux, bsd, anything, knows very directly the problem with this framework thing. apt-get is guess what ? a package framework. what's its principal function on anyone's machine ? that it imports packages you a) didn't want or need and b) turned out vulnerable.
mircea_popescu: but to return upstack : if i can't enumerate the states of my machine, i will thus therefore worry about it ending up in a state i can't predict, understand or recover. this is rational.
Framedragger: mircea_popescu: well, you're right, damn. looking at list of thing signal gives though, it's just clean functions for doing crypto. i dunno. i think in the case of tox, its crypto may actually map well to noise, in the sense of them being able to just use stuff that noise provides, and not reimplement same shit in broken fashion
mircea_popescu: (predict : i know what it will do in the future ; understand : i know what it is doing now ; recover : i separated it from what it did in the past.)
Framedragger: but then that whole ecosystem may need to die before there is good in the world.
ben_vulpes: awww he's coming around
mircea_popescu: well, maybe. i'm not really able to evaluate a framework rightnao.
Framedragger: i just thought, asciilifeform's bignumtron is probably not even turing complete yes? if it's not, that *a big plus*

asciilifeform: Framedragger: who will alert you of this ? martians ?
asciilifeform: how do you propose to mechanically determine that a key has been stolen.
Framedragger: other people, e.g., who yes will be alerting both you and other-you
Framedragger: could just be a social thing, someone literally using your key
asciilifeform: who will know about it exactly how ??
asciilifeform: has Framedragger finally discovered the ancient dream of riaa, the magical bits that tattle when copies ?
Framedragger: it's not deterministic, it's not guaranteed, it's pretty crap, yes, but given the option?..
asciilifeform: what option !
asciilifeform: describe, for my enlightenment, the actual algo contemplated, Framedragger
asciilifeform: bool HasBeenStolen(PrivKey) -- if you like.
asciilifeform: how's it work ?
Framedragger: no, there is no such thing, i said it's social. but hold on:
Framedragger: it's not an algo, i was referring to a possible fix of a further bad-thing that happens when key stolen. bad-thing is: once your key stolen, attacker (in that broken tox scheme) can impersonate as *anyone* *to* you.
asciilifeform: he can also log into your box, say, and impersonate ~that~ way.
asciilifeform: or format your hd.
asciilifeform: or whichever.
asciilifeform: for any practical purpose, he ~is~ you.
Framedragger: so if you have your friend bob's key and bob writes you "dude key stolen wtf", you know that shit went down. but now, attacker can be 100 bobs, with 'signed messages' or whatever, telling you "no don't listen to this impersonator not-bob, you're fine"
Framedragger: i do not believe in "single key" thing. there is main-key. but you can have station keys. which can't format hdd. that's slippery slope
asciilifeform: Framedragger: how do you intend to distinguish this situation from impostor ?
Framedragger: if scheme works as it should, you get a signed message from bob and you know it's bob who sent it to you.
asciilifeform: ... or the thief
Framedragger: the idea is that your key was not stolen while attacker had root access to your box.
asciilifeform: or bob-with-splitbrainsyndrome
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i think he's thinking, basically, of divorce.
mircea_popescu: "this woman is not the woman i married"
Framedragger: no, wait, it's *you* who lost the key, not bob.
asciilifeform: Framedragger: describe, in this hypothetical, how my station key was stolen.
Framedragger: oh god.
Framedragger: i typed it into irc while sleeping.
asciilifeform: why you would not also type the 'master' key ?
mircea_popescu: so basically if master key annuls a key it is thereby annulled ?
Framedragger: i don't have a super-plausible scenario. i'm saying such scenario is possible; scheme used by tox can 'minimise damage' (i realise that it's a funny word when describing 'key stolen'); it doesn't, hence that complaint on shithub.
Framedragger: is end of story. not very interesting, yes
asciilifeform: 'i won't describe how an elephant could get to your garden, but your household is not equipped for gardening without this elephant repellent' ?
Framedragger: mircea_popescu: i don't think the discussion about say gossipd station keys vs 'main key' was necessarily finished? i realise that it ain't pretty
mircea_popescu: i dunno, go on ?
Framedragger: asciilifeform: they were already using a scheme which was supposed to protect it, but broke the spec, and implemented poorly. i don't remember but it's probably fixable without migrating to snakeoil or whatever framework

mircea_popescu: well, as conclusive as it gets. see the gossipd design document comment section.
asciilifeform: the meaningful subset of 'key revocation' consists of solely those operations which you can do ~in your head~
asciilifeform: e.g., to decide not to make use of a particular key any longer.
asciilifeform: 'i will no longer include 1024b rsa keys in my ~/.wot' , for instance.

BingoBoingo: <pete_dushenski> or maybe it doesn't depend on the co.. if 'hired' then not founder, so... << Fortune 500 usually rides on inertia rather than continued interest of founder in concern
asciilifeform: 'fortune 500' is approx as interesting as that other nomenklatura. ☟︎
pete_dushenski: asciilifeform: one wonders what the attendees were seasoned with. salt ? paprika ? a dash of lemon zest ?
BingoBoingo: <asciilifeform> 'fortune 500' is approx as interesting as that other nomenklatura. << Hey, thanks to "Real World" cryptographers you too can walk the street wearing privacy invisible pants
asciilifeform was once sent, as 'industrial' non-talking delegate, to a lavish usg-hosted gathering of 'seasoned cryptographers'. it was mega-circus, iirc i described it in old thread.

a111: Logged on 2016-09-08 17:31 asciilifeform: the #1 entry is gut-bustingly lulzy to asciilifeform , because i spend ~half year auditing a multilinear-map thing for $rupturefarm, and even was sent to a 'conference' where 'serious cryptographers' did not even blink when someone walked in with a proof that whole thing was crock of shit
pete_dushenski: in other alt-civilisations : https://pbs.twimg.com/media/C-gSp9nXkAAdI_-.jpg
asciilifeform: i dun recall any of these nongreen colours on the prophet's banner.
phf: asciilifeform: thanks for the ada updates, i was reading knuth's book 3 on arbitrary precision multiplication, so you're 20 steps ahead of me
asciilifeform: phf: the given algo isn't even 'adult', it's the old ancient egyptian one.
asciilifeform: but worx.
asciilifeform: ( for the given purpose )
asciilifeform: what i don't yet have is a fixed-time modular exponentiator.
phf: so my very very naive algo takes 120 seconds to expt 2345 to 5678
asciilifeform: apparently this might be an open problem, of sorts
phf: err 170s
pete_dushenski: in other walls, https://www.dezeen.com/2017/04/25/turkey-completes-first-phase-900-kilometre-wall-syrian-border/
phf: which i think should be considered a kind of upper bound (this is the most naive algo, without making it intentionally retarded)
asciilifeform: ( best mod exp algo i've found appears to be 'montgomery's ladder', but i am not convinced that it can be made fixed-time ) ☟︎
asciilifeform: phf: egyptian algo is , afaik, the simplest that's at all practical
phf: in related lulz Karatsuba and Ofman's "Multiplication of Many-Digital Numbers by Automatic Computers" doesn't seem to be available anywhere online, but "everyone" seems to know it somehow ☟︎
asciilifeform: ( repeated addition is not exactly physically plausible for 64b, much less 8192b multiplicand..)
asciilifeform: phf: karatsuba's algo is in knuth
asciilifeform: ( and gpg )
asciilifeform: however it is unsuitable, because it branches.
phf: right, i figure as much from reading cmucl's source code (which uses k.)
asciilifeform: k incidentally died not long ago iirc
asciilifeform: was a titan of a man.
asciilifeform: ( karatsuba, that is. knuth afaik zombies along still. )
phf: philistine that i am, for a longest time i thought karatsuba was japanese..
asciilifeform: lol!!
phf: i.e. ka-ra-tsu-ba
asciilifeform: http://www.mi.ras.ru/~karatsuba << subj.
asciilifeform: phf: https://archive.is/j4Lue >> 'Умножение многозначных чисел на автоматах' (1962), subj2
asciilifeform: hmm, cut off
phf: aah cheers
asciilifeform: anyway the pdf loads.
