shinohai: btw mod6 .... I failed with the Ada/Gentoo thing the other night. Back to reading I suppose.
asciilifeform: shinohai: say moar? failed how?
shinohai: I can't get a workable env going .... using gcc version 4.9.4 (Gentoo 4.9.4 p1.0, pie-0.6.4)
asciilifeform: again say moar
asciilifeform: what dun work
asciilifeform: where - barfed ?
shinohai looks at notes
shinohai: First of all, is this what I should be following? https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Project:Ada
asciilifeform: emerge dev-lang/gnat-gpl
asciilifeform: alternatively install adacore's thing
asciilifeform: ( either variant involves, sadly, a binary bootstrapper, as gnat is written in ada... )

shinohai: le sigh

ben_vulpes: long time no see, ag3nt_zer0
ag3nt_zer0: hey there!
ag3nt_zer0: no kidding man
trinque: this guy right here, shit you not, tells deedbot:
ag3nt_zer0: I am always peeking from time to time for reassurance hehe
trinque: curl $url | gpg --decrypt
trinque thoroughly entertained
ag3nt_zer0: awww man
trinque: you don't get off so easy!
trinque: lol, anyhow wb
ag3nt_zer0: hehe
ag3nt_zer0: thx
ben_vulpes: ho ho ho
ben_vulpes: allow me to reassure you, ag3nt_zer0, you *can* still curl2sudo!
asciilifeform: curl http://microshit.gov > /dev/sda
trinque: I resisted the urge to troll him that hard
trinque: "oh gotta update your gpg, here"
trinque should be sainted
ag3nt_zer0: hehe yes been very patient
ben_vulpes: what are the lolz of the day ag3nt_zer0
ag3nt_zer0: haha well alot moved around since last I was here... we had that whole brexit trump pepe chaos magik thing
ag3nt_zer0: I went on an pretty long trip - 8 mos mexico, colombia, peru, thailand
trinque: how do you find Thailand?
ag3nt_zer0: just got back a while ago and working my ass off to buy btc before it fulfills what appears to be its destiny of 1 trillion dollars/coin
ag3nt_zer0: trinque I loved thailand
trinque: the place has been on my radar for a while; I've got a meatwot guy there
ag3nt_zer0: i should say it was my first "world trip" so I dont have much to compare it to and was really just enjoying the otherness of it all... the food was fucking incredible and the people were mostly very nice... said hi to me as I walked past them on the street which I guess qualifies as "very nice" in pharmaceutically feminist america
ag3nt_zer0: I really enjoyed the temples everywhere
ag3nt_zer0: Chiang Rai is very nice superior to Chiang Mai imo, smaller, cleaner, up in the hills a bit more
asciilifeform: what's a pharmaceutically feminist ?
trinque: ag3nt_zer0: what'd a month cost you there?
ag3nt_zer0: what i mean is that people are on drugs and feminism
ben_vulpes: pantsuit parties: http://www.theamericanmirror.com/emails-cheryl-mills-hillary-aides-thought-pantsuit-party-woo-young-voters/
ag3nt_zer0: could have a small home outside of town for 0.116376 btc/mo
ag3nt_zer0: hehe
ag3nt_zer0: then food... maybe 3-4 usd/day
ag3nt_zer0: less if you cook
asciilifeform: ag3nt_zer0: is that rice or roquefort ?
ag3nt_zer0: that would be rice
asciilifeform: thought so
ag3nt_zer0: and noodles and veggies and some meatz
asciilifeform: it's about ~same 3-4 here in bad old usa too
asciilifeform was once a penniless student, like many folx
ag3nt_zer0: dropped my little aged porn star potbelly and all fat over there though with no bread and cheese
asciilifeform: neato
asciilifeform: thailand is the land of the 200% car tax iirc.
asciilifeform: so i take it 0 fat folx.
ag3nt_zer0: yeah I didnt see any

asciilifeform: trinque: lol which gnat
trinque: the latest and therefore best!!11!!!11
trinque: was actually going to ask if you had a vintage
asciilifeform: i do, which one would you like
trinque: whichever one doesn't scorn gcc4 I suppose.
asciilifeform: on the box i'm sitting at nao, i have adacore's 4.9.4
trinque: dev-lang/gnat-gpl-2017 << this demanded gcc6
asciilifeform: 4.9.4 iirc is still on their www
trinque: I'll try that one instead
asciilifeform: incidentally for all i know gcc5ism has not even touched gnat/ada
asciilifeform: to date it's been 100% frontend rot afail
asciilifeform: *afaik
asciilifeform: but i cannot guarantee this.
asciilifeform: ( ada does not suffer from the c/cpp idiots' '95% of everything we do is not nailed down in the standard' horror )
asciilifeform: ditto fortran
asciilifeform: ( incidentally i considered fortran for tmsr crypto )
asciilifeform: we may well eventually end up with fortran ( it is by far easier to write a fortran compiler from 0 than an adatron )

asciilifeform: i.e. honesty.
asciilifeform: ( moar-threads-than-cpus is fundamentally a lie to the operator )
asciilifeform: it'll be great to be able to deterministically measure execution times again, for instance.
asciilifeform: i can't think of any reason to EVEN ENABLE INTERRUPTS on such a box
asciilifeform: polling or fuckoff
asciilifeform: or at least confine'em to 1 core.
mod6: <+asciilifeform> ( moar-threads-than-cpus is fundamentally a lie to the operator ) << 'i can't believe it's not cpu' aha.

mircea_popescu: after which, benchmarkings.
sina: mircea_popescu: sure. happy to. FWIW, I kept README.md in my python repo updated with the spec as our discussions went on
sina: http://wotpaste.cascadianhacker.com/pastes/rAOt1/?raw=true

mircea_popescu: i suspect today is the day tmsr production exceeded the ability of any one man to keep abreast of.
asciilifeform: sina: notyet
asciilifeform: prolly this weekend
sina: I mean, it's still written in python and all :P
sina: so I know it still counts as "complete rewrite" in your eyes
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i still eat'em faster than they shit'em, but currently tied up
mircea_popescu: that's what it's called, in alflang
asciilifeform: with the ffa massages

sina: appreciated sir

mod6: sina: where's the code?
mod6: i'll look at it.
sina: https://github.com/sinner-/gossipd
mod6: ah, thx!
sina: asciilifeform: btw I was going to ask you about your feelings on this https://github.com/cforler/Ada-Crypto-Library ...obviously hasn't been impl for constant time/space but regardless. may be possible to ctgrind it using that valgrind patch I linked in the logs
asciilifeform: sina: it is in the logs
sina: mod6: no, thank *you*

trinque: consider also the value of the gentleman who writes the thing ~being in your wot~
asciilifeform: and if you even so much as considering valgrind, your ada is ill-conceived
mircea_popescu: quite a not inconsequential value.
sina: that is true trinque
sina: asciilifeform: not valgrind for valgrinding, but ctgrind patched valgrind for checking constant timeness of existing code
sina: but I guess that point stands anyway
asciilifeform: sina: no need for robotic checkers, it is screamingly naked eye
sina: if you impl as constant time you don't need ctgrind
sina: yeahg
asciilifeform: afaik mine is the only fixed spacetime bigint lib that exists publicly
asciilifeform: ( if whoever knows of another -- plz write in..!! )
sina: asciilifeform: nope, and I did look! the closest thing I found was this, which is both not public and not for constantime, although interesting nonetheless drops.dagstuhl.de/opus/volltexte/2012/3587/pdf/3.pdf
asciilifeform: sina: not public == not exists
sina: can agree
sina: although I do guess the researchers could be convinced to send source
mircea_popescu: not what experience indicates.
asciilifeform: sina: the other thing is, life-critical code gotta be fitsinhead.
asciilifeform: like kalash.
asciilifeform: which means that if you're even thinking about grinders, it is Wrong.
sina: yeah, I definitely appreciate the fitsinhead thing
sina: basically once it's >fitsinhead, nobodies gonna audit it
asciilifeform: sina: worse
asciilifeform: sina: it's physically impossible then
asciilifeform: and whoever insinuates otherwise, is not a friend
sina: somehow it's 1pm and I haven't eaten breakfast, going to walk to the shop

asciilifeform: makes it painful to read
sina: asciilifeform: I think all the stuff you care about will be in process/
sina: apologies
mod6: sina: aside from alfs previous assertions; do you not want a primary key field set in the messages or keys table?
sina: mod6: yes, will add some constraints and indexes
sina: it was intentionally loose to begin with, but now can be constrainted
sina: constrained*
mod6: werd.
sina: definitely need index on keys table
sina: mod6: although, again, maybe not, I think the desire is to not have sqlite dep and use fs so...
sina: asciilifeform: do you feel sqlite is an OK dep or no?
asciilifeform: take a guess
sina: I guess you think the entire edifice of computing should be torn down and rebuilt
sina: ;) :D
asciilifeform: we have a winner
asciilifeform: except most of it dun need to be rebuilt, after burning
asciilifeform: nobody needs it for anything.
asciilifeform: certainly not anybody worth knowing, at any rate
sina: in this case it has at least allowed for rapid iteration
asciilifeform: sina: i've personally sewn 'silk purses' from all kinds of sow's ears. incl. python, sql, etc
sina: and I do remember a logline from asciilifeform "written in python because if I didn't then it wouldn't exist" or along those lines

a111: Logged on 2017-06-10 03:59 mircea_popescu: i say count from 1.

a111: Logged on 2017-06-10 04:09 ben_vulpes: my next q is does the iteration run [0, count] or [0, count)
sina: which I noticed in my golang impl is [0, count)
sina: and I remember making it [0, count] and it breaking somehow or other
sina: oh right I remember
mircea_popescu: iirc that was correctly [0, count)
sina: in mpfhf-python: for i in range(0, count):
sina: which is [0, count], right?!
sina: but in golang: for i := 0; i<count; i++ {
mircea_popescu: nfi python
sina: which is [0, count) :o
sina: if I change golang to <=, it differs from python
ben_vulpes: iirc we hit consensus with [0, count) in golang, however you implemented that
sina: right
sina: ok well those were the 2 things which I believe the spec should be refined to state clearly
mircea_popescu: yes
mircea_popescu: aite gimme a minute here ima write a final-drafrt
sina: anything from your end ben_vulpes ?
mircea_popescu: sina what do i ref you as ? got a blog or anything ?
ben_vulpes: sina: neg
mircea_popescu: and sina ben_vulpes where's the cannonical impl live for each of you ? i dun want to change links later.
sina: you can link sina.id.au I guess, that is the castle home but no blog currently live there
mircea_popescu: you own id.au ?
sina: I don't
mircea_popescu: wtf is wrong with you ?
sina: wtf is wrong with me for not owning id.au? or for having a .id.au domain?
mircea_popescu: "where do i send the check ?" "oh, here's my landlord's address. he takes all my money and i guess if he's bored buys me little riffled ankle socks so i can dance in the street"
mircea_popescu: own your things. not just your bitcoin. all your things, i say.
sina: I do
sina: https://www.ausregistry.com.au/what-is-id-au/
mircea_popescu: well so then reg a domain and use that.
sina: I did!
mircea_popescu: da fuck ?!
mircea_popescu: you know, just because the brits.co.uk are fucktarded, doesn't change how domain names work.
sina: mircea_popescu: if I had said my blog was sina.com.au would you have had same reaction?
mircea_popescu: yep.
sina: fair
sina: too bad sina.com is a giant chinese search engine!
mircea_popescu: it's what it is : a subdomain off a domain in a space run by fucktards who figure hey, "if this is all we sell it'll count"
mircea_popescu: ya lol.
sina: anyway if you hate it no need to link, like Isaid nothing is public facing there atm anyway
mircea_popescu: ill link whatever you say ; but i'll bitch about some subclasses.
sina: fair
mircea_popescu: for-your-own-benefit (tm)

mircea_popescu: now trilema's linking to github, this is what i get for my sluttery.
sina: the castle has cgit but it is behind the wall
ben_vulpes: top kek
mircea_popescu: sina suppose, for the sake of entirely idle argument going over things that could never happen irl, that in a week github comes up with a "code of conduct" and you get booted off it.
mircea_popescu: will i have been made a sucker for your sake then ?
ben_vulpes: mircea_popescu: http://cascadianhacker.com/an-implementation-of-mircea-popescus-fabulous-hash-function
sina: mircea_popescu: are you asking if that is the only place it exists other than my HDD? a: no
mircea_popescu: no. i am asking what exactly must be your thought process to give away your work to a bunch of usg tarded spammers so they can then turn around and sell it.
mircea_popescu: as if THEY had anything to do with it, any say in it, etcetera.
mircea_popescu: "github presents -- black chix code. this is what's important. we'd know because be bamboozled 5mn sinas into giving us free shit!"
sina: I guess it just doesn't bother me if anyone at all uses it
mircea_popescu: no two bit us-run "company" should have the sort of power ~everyone unthinkingly gave twitter et all.
mircea_popescu: sina yeah. and because mice don't bother elephant, elephant dies inexplicably of plague.
ben_vulpes: sina: why the resistance to making a website?
sina: also what's on there is just...how do I put it? hobby projects? stuff I do in my spare time
mircea_popescu: cuz it's a) work and b) unexpected
mircea_popescu: sina how's that change anything ?
sina: I get paid to make stuff during work hours and that's not shared with anyone :P
mircea_popescu: the problem isn't their per-unit value. the problem is their count ; and the unthinkingness.
sina: ben_vulpes: there was one, but I never posted anything to it

mircea_popescu: :p
ben_vulpes: heh and i get the astonishment too. that it's so deep, and about the weirdest of shit!
ben_vulpes: "you don't have a website?! linking to github?!"
mircea_popescu: almost like a cult.
ben_vulpes: it must sound so strange!
ben_vulpes: sina: go impl is canonical?
ben_vulpes: or mircea_popescu
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes both are. go and lisp.
ben_vulpes: i mean which of his
ben_vulpes: but yeah i caught that i got a new caftan! neato!
mircea_popescu: go. sina did you ever get python to snuff also ?
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes lel
sina: mircea_popescu: yes both python and go return identical hashes for stuff I tested

mircea_popescu: sina fixed i think?
sina: mircea_popescu: suggestion. "A third operation is the flipping of a number of bits in either S or R," should read "elements A or B" and make that operation generic
mircea_popescu: but there are no other elements defined than S and R
mircea_popescu: incidentally, ben_vulpes & other blog afficionados, check me out with the article renaming on the fly, yes ? and old name resolves and everything ? go me ok ? OK ?
sina: yah, I just remember when implementing it I had to write out that sentence on notepad as A and B to wrap my head
sina: but only a suggestion
mircea_popescu: the great advantage of your work is that people can now just read the impl.
mircea_popescu: to wrap head. and such a wide palette ~impossible for anyone to not find a language he speaks.
sina: true
mircea_popescu: aged 17 to 71
mircea_popescu: if no more changes, shit left to do re mpfhf : a) do some proper profiling work, with timings etc. could make a great blog article. b) try and break it, like any hash. could make a bnunch of great blog articles (tried this, so and so, didn't work -- can do this 500 times).
sina: "Once the position is larger than the size of M" how about "once all iterations are complete"
mircea_popescu: "once all iterations are complete" means nothing in context ?
mircea_popescu: the whole game is "define ALL your elements and then USE NOTHING BUT THE DEFINED ELEMENTS"

sina: mircea_popescu: old man python hey? you should be able to clone the repo and run "python setup.py install" from inside the repo dir
sina: the README explains all usage
mircea_popescu: some assembly required huh. fair enough, lessee this readme then\
mircea_popescu goes hmm what was it, github/sina- ? ends up with https://github.com/sina-/dota-hero-suggestion
sina: github.com/sinner-
sina: github.com/sinner-/gossipd
mircea_popescu: git clone an virtualenv and stuff.
mircea_popescu: well, this machine's not set up for such liftings.
sina: mircea_popescu: would you be willing to ssh into another box where it's setup?
mircea_popescu: sina prolly premature to hassle you with ah hey, that's an idea. sure.
mircea_popescu: if only we had teh uci already ;/
sina: ok hold pls
sina: uci?
mircea_popescu: !#s UCI
a111: 134 results for "UCI", http://btcbase.org/log-search?q=UCI

mircea_popescu: nooo ?
mircea_popescu: :D
sina: mircea_popescu: where are you atm? I booted in Frankfurt thinking you were in EU but just realised you're probly elsewhere :P
mircea_popescu: costa rica. whart diff does it make ?

sina: ye
mircea_popescu: hey, im into... something. there's pretty red colored stuff.
mircea_popescu goes back to readme to see wtf next.
sina: yup. ok pls open another terminal, one to run the daemon and another to run the client
mircea_popescu: gossipc just ends, is that intended ?
sina: you can run gossipc -h
mircea_popescu: aite, which peer do i add ?
sina: so youcan add me as a peer with: gossipc --add-peer --name sina --host --port 5556
sina: my pubkey is here http://wotpaste.cascadianhacker.com/pastes/FtYXs/?raw=true
mircea_popescu: http://wotpaste.cascadianhacker.com/pastes/aSykI/?raw=true
sina: mircea_popescu: ok, so then save my key somewhere onto the filesystem like /tmp/sina_exchange.pub and run: gossipc --set-peer-key --name sina -k /tmp/sina_exchange.pub
mircea_popescu: so i saved it as hurr.txt and then gossipc -k hurr.txt, no anmswer
mircea_popescu: ah
sina: sorry the UX bit of it is still a tad clunky
mircea_popescu: also no answer.
sina: all good.
mircea_popescu: aite.
mircea_popescu: so where do i see messages ? send ?
mircea_popescu: i got a RECV: empty line
sina: ah, fuck
sina: some kind of bug! wtf!
sina: hold pls
mircea_popescu: don't sweat it.
mircea_popescu: i typed "hurr ?" into the demon window, though i suspect that's not intended usage
sina: nope
sina: you can ctrl-c the daemon and I will tell you when to restart
mircea_popescu: it can just go.
mircea_popescu: 99% cpu too, nice handiwork there :D
mircea_popescu: o look, and systemd...
sina: grewdfwe
mircea_popescu: ?
mircea_popescu: o hey, still empty :D
sina: heh
mircea_popescu: aite listen don't stress out, we'll try this again later.
sina: yeah, I'll let you know when I have hunted down wtf is going on
sina: considering this is working on an identical setup locall
mircea_popescu: heh, sounds exactly like why man made computer in the first place.
sina: heh ffs!
sina: I was missing the final "-" of your pubkey footer
mircea_popescu: o.O
sina: feel free to hop back on
mircea_popescu: got some other stuff going right now, so not a good time, but tomorrow or such ?
sina: sure
sina: ok added some error handling to stop that issue in future, how annoyin
mircea_popescu: and so the little guy grew...
mircea_popescu: sina can you dump pcap of session going ?
sina: there's no session! :P
mircea_popescu: lol i see!
sina: http://btcbase.org/log/2017-06-28#1675621☝︎
a111: Logged on 2017-06-28 02:15 mircea_popescu: http://btcbase.org/log/2017-06-28#1675565 << the problem with the concept of a "session" is that it attempts to link machine state to world state. this is a very tenuous proposition, and the fundamental reason why sessionificatyion of (the correctly designed) stateless http protocol failed for 30 years straight and will continue to fail forever.
mircea_popescu: sina can you dump pcap of two of these talking ?
sina: yesr
mircea_popescu: also, how do you feel about replacing your db dependency with encrypted-flatfile instead ?
sina: mircea_popescu: I feel fine about reducing everything once the concept is OK'd
sina: can change tcp for udp, can change sql for flatfile, can change python for syslang
mircea_popescu: the two main problems are the db and the rsa import as it stands.
sina: happy to swap out the RSA lib if one can be proposed
mircea_popescu: we'll see what alf makes for minigame
sina: I just googled "small RSA lib" and tomcrypt was one that had python bindings out of the box
mircea_popescu: sina so you're considering making offer for ai learning hosting ?
sina: mircea_popescu: I dunno. all I can say is when I was reading the ai logs, and you mentioned irc repl, I was thinking about how it could be implemented
sina: today is Fri here, bout to return to work in a few days, so free time will be curtailed
mircea_popescu: hey, teh republic is made of free men.
sina: mircea_popescu: what do you want to see ideally? just a lisp repl with irc interface?
sina: where do I upload this pcap
mircea_popescu: wotpaste ?
mircea_popescu: and i was talking specifically about the ai learning thing, http://trilema.com/2017/the-bitcoin-learning-tournament/
mircea_popescu: i intend to hire someone to do the official run, see.
sina: mircea_popescu: http://wotpaste.cascadianhacker.com/pastes/ZXfR3/?raw=true base64 encoded because PCAPs are binary, so pls base64 decode first
mircea_popescu: ty
sina: mircea_popescu: FYI that is a bunch of send and recv from 2 peers, (1 on port 5555, other on port 5556) on the same network interface ( ...it's not a single "session"
sina: I did look at the learning tournament blog previously but I couldn't really grok it
mircea_popescu: obviously not. just, you realise, it's a republican artefact, "1st pcap of an early gossipd attempt"
mircea_popescu: well, basically a bunch of people (ideally) will write ai bots, and solmeone will have to run their tournament.
mircea_popescu: sina ftr, the lisp repl with irc interface was already built ; her name is candi_lustt
mircea_popescu: !!up candi_lustt
deedbot: candi_lustt voiced for 30 minutes.
mircea_popescu: candi_lustt (+ 2 3)
mircea_popescu: oh what was it
mircea_popescu: !W (+ 2 3)
candi_lustt: mircea_popescu: 5
sina: nice
sina: so can you untangle these for me as I'm a little confused
sina: UCI ?
sina: ai thing?
mircea_popescu: universal computing interface.
sina: I got that from the logsearch link you put, but http://btcbase.org/log/2016-12-12#1582081 had me confused☝︎
a111: Logged on 2016-12-12 15:24 Framedragger: uci == universal computing interface? something something infrastructure on demand at your irc fingertips, right (ironically google is failing me)
mircea_popescu: see the early discussion re it in the log, http://btcbase.org/log-search?q=UCI it's well described
mircea_popescu: sina ah ok. yeah that's the idea.
sina: mircea_popescu: so is UCI just candi_lustt + an interface you can pay for resources via?
mircea_popescu: nah. candi_lustt is a by hand, limited implementation of something that could be deemed uci in the sense of the donkey-powered shower.
sina: have you ever heard of seccomp?
mircea_popescu: i have.
sina: it's a linux kernel feature you can use to limit which syscalls a program has access to...the original version of seccomp allowed only read()/write()/exit() syscalls
sina: it was implemented for this CPUShare concept
mircea_popescu: myeah. all sorts of these.
sina: so people could sell CPU cycles, in a pretty hard sandbox, that only offered those 3 syscalls
sina: is that the same kind of idea?
sina: I can actually feel asciilifeform being angry at me in the future already
mircea_popescu: lol. it's... somewhjat similar i guess
sina: http://btcbase.org/log/2017-05-02#1650884☝︎
a111: Logged on 2017-05-02 15:39 mircea_popescu: could I do something like !$mirror <url> 5 so as to get it to spin up 5 separate instances, load url, unpack it and serve ?
mircea_popescu: that is a fine example. or, you know, calculate the mpfhf over the gutenberg collection.
mircea_popescu: or whatever, hashing, packeting, anything and everything.
sina: hmm ok so there is an interesting technology I have worked on
mircea_popescu: there is ?
sina: you've probably heard of Amazon S3, it's an object store with REST API, so it responds to primitives GET/HEAD/PUT/DELETE/POST ...there is an equivalent open source project part of OpenStack called Swift. some people I know worked on a sandbox that only accepts input on stdin and writes to stdout, and wrotesome middleware for swift so you can for example upload a datset and compute on it and get the result
sina: back
sina: http://www.zerovm.org/zerocloud.html
mircea_popescu: i think we even used them at some point.
mircea_popescu: interesting. what was the problem with it ?
sina: sorry, them being?
mircea_popescu: amazon s3s
sina: mircea_popescu: no problem with it, just nobody wants this!
mircea_popescu: lol!
sina: I rant about it to my boss at least once a week
mircea_popescu: seems like you found a new home!
sina: mircea_popescu: when the people I know first wrote ZeroVM it was like 2012 or so, and at the time I was working at a startup you may recall that. and I told everyone we shoudl get involved, was ignored, then ZeroVM got "acquihired" by Rackspace
sina: and since then the project has been stealth or just stagnant
mircea_popescu: kinda how this stuff works.
sina: no commits to zerovm github since 2015 same for zerocloud middleware for swift :(
sina: anyway, it would be trivial to place an irc gateway in front of that
mircea_popescu: there's a management/pricing segment too
sina: elaborate?
mircea_popescu: which depends on deedbot payments, which reminds me... how's that going trinque ?
mircea_popescu: sina the idea is for me to go "do this" and for it to go "here's your bill sir"
mircea_popescu: then all the ad-hoc uci impls doing full disk encryption for maerks could be actually useful.
mircea_popescu: nobody cared what their shitty data was, anyway.
sina: fde wouldn't have protected them
sina: backups would have!
mircea_popescu: nono, the attack consists of encryption.
sina: oh LOL
sina: you mean, the ransomware bot shoudl have been UCI bots? haha
mircea_popescu: see ?
mircea_popescu: yep.
mircea_popescu: there's two kinds of computers : public, and private. everyone else's computers are public, and by public i simply mean, not theirs.
sina: so what's wrong with candi_lustt for this role? it just needs a billing thingo?
mircea_popescu: gotta put a price tag on this whole "we're too lazy to do security"
mircea_popescu: sina it doesn't, for instance, spin up new ones.
mircea_popescu: nor does it... acquire them.
sina: hahahaha
mircea_popescu: well ?
sina: technically both of those are just pieces of code you'd write though
mircea_popescu: yes.
mircea_popescu: technically.
sina: so then?
sina: ah
mircea_popescu: so then i've not written them lol.
sina: so this thing literally exists on the market today and its fucking cheap for example to use Amazon Lambda...is the reason you want your own basically boil down to 1. no irc gw 2. not tmsr?
mircea_popescu: sina no. 1. no "rules of conduct" 2. no usg / fiat "sovereign" interdictability.
mircea_popescu: this thing exists to put an end to non-tmsr computing, give or take.
sina: well someone like me could write software to do these things but the deployment would need to be outside of jurisdiction, hard for me as an AU citizen
sina: you need to be Eastern European or Chinese
mircea_popescu: let them self-deploy.
sina: so basically it's just a pay to play botnet?
mircea_popescu: bitcoin+gossipd+uci -> pretty much time to say goodnight.
mircea_popescu: i suppose you could say that.
mircea_popescu: though i've yet to see a good botnet.
sina: good being defined as?
mircea_popescu: the typical botnet is what, a bunch of fridges sending ntp requests ?
mircea_popescu: people's understanding of "botnet" goes as far as the very deliberate automattic wp hole, for isntance.
sina: sure, but that is largely a lack of originality in the types of commands executed, but the botnet itself can execute whatever
mircea_popescu: i suppose.
sina: when I was a bit younger I worked for managed hosting company
mircea_popescu: dunno how much useful anything can a windows box execute, but for the sake of argument
sina: customer sites used to get scanned/pwned/php shell uploaded on the regular
sina: php shell was usually <100 lines of base64 encoded thing that'd shell out to whatever you wanted
mircea_popescu: i'm sure. trilema daily log is 1mn lines of crap.
mircea_popescu: "trying things"
sina: yeh exactly
mircea_popescu: among them, things from you know, 1997
mircea_popescu: "dis most popular guestbook php!"
sina: costs nothing to check for existence of shit software compared to payoff :P
mircea_popescu: yeah.
mircea_popescu: as the saying went, "poll or get lost" hm
sina: brb
sina: hmmm
sina: well it's certainly an interesting concept
mircea_popescu: do we do anything else ?
sina: seriously hanging here is the least bored I ever am
mircea_popescu: makes one feel.... alive, huh.
sina: how can I explain it
sina: ok
sina: day to day, everything is postmodernism. any idea you have, someone did it. probably better than you. in fact, one example of that is MPex
sina: an idea I had, then I saw someone had done it way better than my idea
sina: but tmsr in general, everything that anyone has done sucks and is to be torn down and rebuilt in some quirky fashion
sina: lots of fertile ground for funtimes
mircea_popescu: word.
mircea_popescu: people are liek "oh, mp can't be rich & powerful because rich & powerful people don't irc". totally, because it is really the goal of my life as well as everyone reasonable to be as rich and powerful as trump, so as to live the great life of idiots trying to insert cathetercam up your dick as you're trying to pee
mircea_popescu: i suppose i'm missing out on a lot of watching four movies at once through pay per view.
sina: mircea_poorpescu
mircea_popescu: ahahaha
sina: that's what they call you mate
mircea_popescu: o, really ?
sina: yep
sina: :D
mircea_popescu: pretty great name fuckupery, at that.
sina: mircea_popescu: earlier you said "spin up new ones"
mircea_popescu: i did,
sina: is a "new one" a full host, i.e. CPU/RAM/HDD/public IP?
mircea_popescu: it can be whatever no ?
sina: well it depends right?
sina: !mirror <url> 5
sina: needs 5 public IPs
mircea_popescu: is a new child an athlete artist intellectual cook ?
mircea_popescu: well... ideally atleast some are each
sina: !sha256 <set of document URLs>
sina: doesnt
mircea_popescu: right.
sina: but both might spin up 5 "new ones" to do the task
mircea_popescu: ok ?
sina: I'm just trying to envision what a "one" is
mircea_popescu: some kind of physical item
sina: I get the feeling that the task would be much simpler if there was only 1 public IP for the whoel system where you could retrieve the results of whatever "job" you triggered
mircea_popescu: comms over gossipd
sina: that'd be much more difficult given your requirement for manual peer introduction?
sina: I mean imagine you have autonomous "acquisition" of ndoes
mircea_popescu: ah, no, looky : http://btcbase.org/log/2017-06-28#1675630☝︎
a111: Logged on 2017-06-28 02:18 mircea_popescu: the only way for A and B to be introduced, outside of the grandfatherly, A fucks B and they exchange bits of paper, is C tells A about B and B about A.
sina: ah right
mircea_popescu: after all, you did get my key from... your irc client yes ?
sina: I did but in my mind that falls more under A fucks B
mircea_popescu: why ?
sina: well it wasn't bits of paper, but wotpaste URLs are not so different?
mircea_popescu: we didn't fuck!
sina: DIDNT WE
mircea_popescu: you just... BLEW my mind~!
sina: so in your way of thinking, B is irc.freenode.net?
sina: +wotpaste?
mircea_popescu: could be. if it were how'd you know.
sina: I guess I was thinking of C tells A
mircea_popescu: a yes, C not b.
sina: as B has fucked C and A and exchange paper with both of them
sina: transitive peer recognition through trusting the fucker
mircea_popescu: i have no idea why this is confusing
sina: it's because you have an implicit mental model of the thing and years of log context
sina: and I am basically just grokking the thing less than a week ago
mircea_popescu: a could be!
ben_vulpes: also worth mentioning the feedback loop where a and c get the wrong keys somehow and go talk to b about it
mircea_popescu: now look : in situation 1, where bricktop decided to introduce me to you, and you do me, for which purpose he sent you some wotpaste and me similarily
mircea_popescu: and situation 2 where i sent you it via irc, how do you distinguish ?
sina: "you do me" *me dies*
sina: good question
sina: in situation 1, I assume there is no bricktop and we exchange wotpaste directly
mircea_popescu: "directly"
sina: but I guess you are assuming you'd never add a rando peasant
mircea_popescu: gotta separate your vision from the shit on the glasses.
mircea_popescu: are you kidding, i added rando peasant with my cock last week
sina: I think this is a much more interesting idea than the IRC bot I was goign to make that plays chess
sina: instead, IRC bot which accepts any shell command, tracks CPU time, mem used, block and network IO consumed and presents a bill
ben_vulpes: if it runs any shell command, what's to keep it from getting at your monitor?
ben_vulpes: http://cascadianhacker.com/an-implementation-of-mircea-popescus-fabulous-hash-function << updated
sina: ben_vulpes: monitor?
sina: oh the thing tracking billing?
ben_vulpes: thing as what tracks cpu time etc
ben_vulpes: cl runs 3-4x longer than the go impl after attending to all the compiler notes i can; probably need a pointer on profiling common lisp code to squeeze much more out of it
ben_vulpes: or, a different set of eyes.
sina: you can run the command in a sandbox and track it with cgroups in linux
sina: once long ago, I ran a tor hidden service that allowed anyone to execute any command they liked on it, as a deanonymisation challenge
sina: nobody could ever deanon it even though they had shell access
sina: (because of the sandbox techniques)
ben_vulpes: some not-root root-alike?
sina: grsec chroot sandbox + linux network namespaces
sina: https://github.com/sinner-/hidden-nginx
mircea_popescu: sina sounds interesting as a prototype at any rate.
sina: mircea_popescu: it was more to prove the point at the time that Ulbricht was a numpty who couldn't secure his own ass
mircea_popescu: paging phf for ben_vulpes 's needs
mircea_popescu: sina wait, what ?
ben_vulpes: lol sina he got nabbed by insiders and physical tails what are you on about
sina: several times during operation he exposed the public IP of the hs
sina: due to shit sandboxing
sina: "oh apache listen on now I am secure"
mircea_popescu: nfi what you folks are discussing. i meant, the metering irc bot would be interesting.
sina: ah yep, sorry I think we are one branch further down the tree
ben_vulpes off, robosprinklers pointed out the time and suddenly v. tired
mircea_popescu: now, a bunch of all-talk wedidits couldn't do whatever medium diff task. ok. how's this relate to silk road dood ?
sina: mircea_popescu: it was trying to prove at the time, that you could construct system in such a way that it can't expose its own info by amateur fuckups
mircea_popescu: ok ?
sina: which Ulbricht had done several times
sina: is all
mircea_popescu: but... he wouldn't have used it.
sina: no, it certainly seems he wouldn't have :P
mircea_popescu: a ok then. that was the hair lol.
sina: at the time I was v interested in tor hs, before it became completely obvious that GCHQ/NSA had ability to look across the whole onion, and I just wanted to demonstrate hey it is actually possible to not ride your bike into the side of the bus
sina: "with this one simple trick" :P
mircea_popescu: the thing sucked a lot of naive youth time that way.
mircea_popescu: take Framedragger for instance.

asciilifeform: after the demise of cpu mining, ddos is afaik the only remaining
mircea_popescu: aha.
asciilifeform: sina, mircea_popescu, et al : pretty interesting thread.
mircea_popescu: i thought so too!
asciilifeform: i'ma bake an ada mphashtron also. but currently in 'one piece on conveyor at a time' mode.
asciilifeform: in the interest of actually finishing things.
mircea_popescu: no rush.
asciilifeform: ( how long we've been stuck with the kochtron, after knowing what it is ! disgraceful )
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform re "how many activities" -- it's not so clear to me, and moreover the consensus of hardware farmers (as opposed to coders) is that there's not much reason this absolutely should be the case, other than, to quote, "largely a lack of originality in the types of commands executed".
mircea_popescu: after all, your current machine flickers at 3GHz.
asciilifeform: that ain't the type of flicker contemplated
mircea_popescu: yes but now we're down the tree discussing types of flicker.
asciilifeform: chumpnet nodes randomly disappear (often with permanent loss of contents)
mircea_popescu: lubby!
asciilifeform: there is not ( and probably provably cannot be ) a 'luby for computation'
mircea_popescu: the whole point is -- that it's not clear to me this is an unaproachable limit.
mircea_popescu: this in itself does not make it approachable.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform amusingly the whole fucking point of "malleable encryption" is ~give or take to make lubby for computation.
asciilifeform: well yes
asciilifeform: the homomorphism derpism
mircea_popescu: hey, it wouldn't be a sour grape if it could be had.
asciilifeform: which is a comical pit of usgology, not a single item in the 'toolbox' actually works as described, or is based on anything other than wishful thinking
asciilifeform worked in this very racket for a spell, ended up quitting in disgust
mircea_popescu: anyway. even if you get to keep data but not computation, may be enough.
asciilifeform: now : certain processes that divide into arbitraily many - and, importantly, ~arbitrarily fungible~ slices -- are good fits for chumpnet
ben_vulpes entertained a sales pitch from a seller with some relevant snake oil recently
mircea_popescu: anything good ?
asciilifeform: ddos is one example, in the sense where it absolutely does not matter if a ~particular~ packet of liquishit gets sent or not
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform all your machine ever does is push pop and mult.
ben_vulpes: "the guys down the office keep giving us hardons with the homomorphic encryption stuff but every time we sit down to discuss numbers it turns out to be computationally infeasible so uh here's this rest layer over postgres so you don't have to touch the dirty dirty phone numbers yourselves"
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes you know this is strangely how "artificial intelligence" as well as "quantum computing" work out ?
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: but observe, it pushes and pops in realtime and predictably.
mircea_popescu: ustech.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform but you got ecc ram. why ?
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: ever use a box over a 'martian' connection, that drops, say, 90% of packets
mircea_popescu: i actually have software for that!
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: to turn 99.99 into 999999
ben_vulpes: mircea_popescu: quite aware
mircea_popescu: turns out -- perfectly usuable.
ben_vulpes: to quote #programmer-therapy: "i just sat clicking at a recaptcha for five minutes before it would accept that i'm human."
mircea_popescu: why would they do that ?!
ben_vulpes: learned helplessness
mircea_popescu: well, at least there's (11.5/2)% or so black chicks among them yes ?
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: slow links are tolerable, and can be abstracted over ( consider how 'vi' came to exist, for instance. ) data loss, however, is harder to swallow
mircea_popescu: but lubby!
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i was specifically speaking of vi :)
ben_vulpes: mircea_popescu: nah, but they make up for it with genderswappers
mircea_popescu: this is how conversations go -- if you're talking to alf, he's gonna mention it himself ; if talking to anyone else, you hit them over the head with it.

asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: fwiw i've been stabbing at the 1024 chickens thing since 2006 or so
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform you're lucky, some've been trying since 1955.
asciilifeform: it may be 'possible if you adjust your expectations'
mircea_popescu: kinda my notion also.
asciilifeform: for instance, bitcoin is an illustration of what you can do if you entirely forget about 'real time'
asciilifeform: but nobody's running, e.g., shells, on top of bitcoin.
asciilifeform: or irc.
mircea_popescu: and for that matter -- bitcoin is computed by a) 1024 flickering nodes that b) lose data or processing all the time.
asciilifeform: ( recall my 'irc over bitcoin' gedankenexperiment article )
mircea_popescu: definitionally, "what could you possibly do with a fridgenet???" "bitcoin"
asciilifeform: the ethertards illustrate the irresistible monkey lure of 'shell over bitcoin'
shinohai: Mine ethereum for scam ICO's of course.
mircea_popescu: the key elements are a) specify a quanta and b) let them either get to it or not. some will.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: the principal boojum is not-being-transparent-to-enemy
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform a shell is an artefact of technology, like say the "eingeer's" coal shovel.
mircea_popescu: not a fundamental.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform yes, there is that. but... at least PARTS of bitcoin are not.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: 'shell' used here in the general sense of 'apparatus that spits out responses to button presses in approx. psychological-realtime'
mircea_popescu: "engineer's" coal shovel. ie, back when engineer was dude driving steam engine.
asciilifeform: well yes
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform yes. even so.
mircea_popescu: honestly, i expect the unix "Shell" is very much "poor man's ai". specifically "we can't get it to laugh at your jokes or suck your cock, but here's the best we can do, it's almost as if you're talking to it"
mircea_popescu: i have ~no expectation for machine to entertain me. all i expect is for it to do work.
trinque: shell's all wrong; you have no idea when you're getting a response in chickennet
mircea_popescu: trinque harem's same way.
trinque: async is always way easier to manage
trinque: also have to be able to verify responses yourself
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: if you don't need real time response, or monotonicity ( you made a change and it stays made , instead of randomly reverting itself like fart in the wind ) then existing botnet is more or less what you want.
asciilifeform: runs N copies of $payload, at random times, in random machines, etc.
asciilifeform: incidentally the 'pass around the latest rsa-signed payload from master' is sop there.
mircea_popescu: yes, but lot of room for improvement.
mircea_popescu: much like "existing isp is pretty much what you want", except not.
asciilifeform: it isn't clear to asciilifeform how much 'room for improvement' there is, unless one were to cough up solutions to a number of unsolved ( and possibly unsolvable ) mathematical boojums

asciilifeform: they gotta be <$10k ~in the aggregate~ , for this syllogism
asciilifeform: ( all items breakable by particular $0day are to be treated as 'one device' )
mircea_popescu: sort-of how "the improved technology" of us army makes most countries immune to it. "what, you're gonna blow a 5mn tomahawk to destroy this here 20k hangar ? bwahahaha go right ahead, the chinese give 50k in cash rebates for each destroyed hangar they rebuild cuz you tomahawked."

mircea_popescu: asciilifeform problem is, nobody cares.
asciilifeform: at the point when nobody cares, you're done, like the siphonariae of byzantium
asciilifeform: ( which iirc the turks did not even bother to pick up and use )
mircea_popescu: this is a very typical ustardian headroach, deliberately educated into their brains like those african tribes with the flattened skulls.
mircea_popescu: "oh, gotta worry! oh, gotta be careful!" bitch... i dun care.
mircea_popescu: "you have to plan for your future" "how about your daugther plans for parenthood"
asciilifeform: the wunderwaffen, when it works, works exactly like the auschwitz guard's machinegun - 'can't shoot all of the prisoners, but can shoot any particular in 1 go'. and fails in exactly same gametheoretical way.
asciilifeform: ( see the old treblinka thread )
mircea_popescu: point remains -- "the only available 0day costs > 100k" is a legitimate specification-of-security.\
mircea_popescu: "do not put over $x in aggregate on this system" is pretty much the only way you'd do it anyway.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: mnope. how about 'the only 0day is an asteroid'
asciilifeform: that's the spec for ffa, for instance.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform so your car has a special indicator, binary, E/F ?
mircea_popescu: goes from full to empty in a yard and then it stops the next yard ?
asciilifeform: i dun follow
asciilifeform: 'secure' is a binary.
mircea_popescu: just like tank fillness is binary, right ? "is it full or isn;'t it"
asciilifeform: either system accepts an unanticipated input and produces unanticipated rape, or it does not.
mircea_popescu: in practice, "what's this tank worth" doesn't depend on "there is NO ARROW THAT COULD PIERCE THIS SHIELD!!!" nonsense.

asciilifeform: the duty of engineer is to ignore godel. like soldier's is to ignore death.
mircea_popescu: every tank can be flattened, and yet i can make comparative judgements re tiger vs mathilde.

asciilifeform: nope. 'gradated' theorems are called 'conjectures' instead.

asciilifeform: or turn into theorems
mircea_popescu: oooo, that's what it was! check you out, YOU introduced the word theorem to describe what we were discussing, and then conveniently YOU point out YOU used the wrong word ?
mircea_popescu: tsk tsk. is this a 0 day being sold here ?
asciilifeform: 'probably provably' == 'conjecture'
asciilifeform: 'sqrt(2) is irrational' -- theorem
mircea_popescu: in this case <asciilifeform> like theorem. is entirely spurious non-contribution to teh discussion.
mircea_popescu: because no, by your own lights within five minutes, NOT "like theorem". unlike theorem.
mircea_popescu: like "in practice", ie like conjecture.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: didja read the beginning, say, of ffa. there's a proof of correctness for the adder, for instance.
asciilifeform: ( tableau proof )
mircea_popescu: so ?
asciilifeform: so motherfucking theorem.
mircea_popescu: the ~only way to specify the security of a certain, definite, given system is still "good for up to $x btc"
mircea_popescu: which makes the "0 days cost X" a legitimate statement of the ~security~ of a system.
mircea_popescu: which is what we were talking aboot.
asciilifeform: given that the system includes a physical component, this is reasonable
asciilifeform: like 'bridge is good for T tonnes of tank'
mircea_popescu: what system exists without physical component ? something running on uci ?
mircea_popescu: i know of no other thing that'd make the cut
asciilifeform: well this is the mega-question of our time neh
asciilifeform: to what extent can ideal object (proggy) be conceptually cut from the physical 'mortal soil'
mircea_popescu: i suppose so. but eg "power diff analysis" very much "leverage of the thingness of item"
asciilifeform: aha!
asciilifeform: speaking of which, i've been wanting to discuss 'simplest cpu' for a while.
mircea_popescu: go right ahead, i'm having a sammich.
asciilifeform: there exists ( in the sense where asciilifeform thought of it, but then went to dig in the dusty libraries and discovered ancient tomes ) a thing called 'tta'
asciilifeform: 'transport triggered architecture'
asciilifeform: idea is, 'cpu' that only knows how to do 1 thing:
asciilifeform: instructions consist of, say, pairs of 64bit words
asciilifeform: word A is 'source' and B is 'destination'
asciilifeform: cpu reads from source (which can be a slow device, it waits for readysignal) and writes (ditto) to B.
asciilifeform: the current instruction ptr is, e.g., address 0.
asciilifeform: all other operations exist in the form of devices that hang off this bus, right next to the memory
asciilifeform: so for instance if you want to load in a constant somewhere, you gotta read it from the constanttron (which is some range of addrs)
asciilifeform: so adder, multer, etc, etc all exist simply as devices that hang from 1 set of wires.
asciilifeform: this scheme is interesting for strictly 1 reason :
asciilifeform: you can make this out of discrete logic.
asciilifeform: without worrying about path lengths, delays.
mircea_popescu: it sounded like signal processor at first, but then it kinda went bent. wouldn't this be damned slow ?
asciilifeform: the quick sub-devices will run quickly, the slow-slowly.
mircea_popescu: the one thing that comes to mind is that the correct approach is for all devices hanging off bus to always run, so that when cpu gets 0xaa 0xbb then the mult mults, the adder adds, and nobody knows WHICH of them the processor peeked for the result.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: well yes !
asciilifeform: is the point.
mircea_popescu: this would be automatic-constant-time cpu, run any software you want.
mircea_popescu: aha.
asciilifeform: naturally they 'always run'
asciilifeform: and you can likewise 'chain' the 'cpus' with ~0 effort.
mircea_popescu: well, tree them.
asciilifeform: plug'em like children's blocks
mircea_popescu: the compiler for arbitrary this arch would be one helluva piece of gnarl.
asciilifeform: not necessarily.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform not "naturally" they always run, since "ready signals" were mentioned.
mircea_popescu: i'd prefer it if this had no out band signalling. at all.
asciilifeform: 'ready signals' are how you finesse the problem of subcomponents of different speeds.
mircea_popescu: which is why my mind went to "would run slow" : cpu clock is largest-hanger-clock + 1
asciilifeform: it simply means 'if yer trying to read from me, you gotta wait or go do something else for a spell'
asciilifeform: 'want to write to me? wait a bit'
mircea_popescu: yes but this then leaks most of the gains
asciilifeform: the gain is the minimality of the hardware.
asciilifeform: could make nsa-free cpu out of stock ecl logic, a few dozen ics.
mircea_popescu: the real gain is if this thing could be signal-less
asciilifeform: and run at ~modern capacities.
mircea_popescu: this sounds like engineer problem, really. make the multer same speed as adder.
mircea_popescu: "but how ?" "give it cancer wtf do i care."
asciilifeform: it is pretty easy to give the fast devices cancer and make'em wait for the slow.
asciilifeform: this gives you cpu from 1960s soviet comp
asciilifeform: 1kHz
asciilifeform: because some slow ops are veeeery sloow
asciilifeform: (e.g. disk)
asciilifeform: as in, 3 orders of magnitude slower than others.
mircea_popescu: myeah.
mircea_popescu: perhaps better solutions also available.
trinque: for the slower cogitaters trying to keep up, this guy has two registers? operations hanging off the executor read from these?
asciilifeform: trinque: elaborate?
mircea_popescu: trinque yes. asciilifeform he's trying to visualize how the damned thing talks to the world.
trinque: where is ADD getting its terms to add.
mircea_popescu: basically it's a signal processor someone dropped on the floor.
asciilifeform: the traditional scheme is that a read happens when the thing being read drops its busy line; and a write begins when when the 'victim' drops his busy signal, and ends when he drops it again after raising.
mircea_popescu: none of that. just poll at fixed speed. that is the clock.
mircea_popescu: 1khz or 1thz, whatever you can get the hardware to do.
asciilifeform: you then run at the disk's 1khz.
asciilifeform: or get garbage.
mircea_popescu: or don't put a disk in this.
mircea_popescu: or put an array of 64k disks.
asciilifeform: there'll be a khz item in there, regardless.
mircea_popescu: not if there's any real engineers involved!
asciilifeform: i/o, for instance.
trinque: my shitty ram claims to run at 3.2ghz
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform fuck that, wire speed.
asciilifeform: you want to run at the baud rate of the terminal, lol?
mircea_popescu: trinque ramdisk entirely practicable by now.
trinque: sitting on 32gb of the stuff atm
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform nono, there's this wire, and it does 1thz, and you connect w/e you want to it, go ahead.
asciilifeform: has mircea_popescu ever seen a multi-Ghz box-to-box wire ?
asciilifeform: ever touched, with own hands ?

mircea_popescu: asciilifeform yes.
mircea_popescu: it was much shorter and slightly thicker than my penis.
asciilifeform: aha!
asciilifeform satisfied that mircea_popescu saw
asciilifeform: anyway the badnoose for mircea_popescu is that you're stuck with the busy signal because that's what the 's' in sram or sdram stands for. the synchronicity.
mircea_popescu: gets special driver.
asciilifeform: it's how you read/write the actual stable signal you put/got , rather than liquishit.
mircea_popescu: to simply "run it by the clock"
asciilifeform: clock ain't magic, it does not teleport to whole circuit instantaneously
mircea_popescu: oh fucking hell.
asciilifeform: ( sadly. )
mircea_popescu: i knew this dream was too good to last.
asciilifeform: i'd luvvv a clock like that, btw
mircea_popescu: motherfucking signals.
asciilifeform: it'd have made FG much easier to make, for instance
mircea_popescu: yest i wanted to make myself batido, the swiss iutem was fullo of some health crap the girls drink, so i was whatever. then later new girl emitted "it's clean now!" signal and i was like "bitch, srsly ? you're... signalling me now ?!"
asciilifeform: ( FG has ~three~ clock domains, and it was a bitch. exercise for reader: which 3 ??? )

asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: what do you think.
mircea_popescu: cost turns out to have been unreliably measured.
asciilifeform: phuctor is not the objective imho
mircea_popescu: agreed, just getting an idea.
mircea_popescu: this tta would cost more in floorspace rent than in object items.
asciilifeform: objective is a minimal core of absolute nonusgicity
asciilifeform: suitable for, e.g., rsa.
mircea_popescu: rsa is > mpfhf
asciilifeform: capable of working on a few dozen kB of working set.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: rsa looks harder than it is because of the ludicrously short machineword of the pc

mircea_popescu: "don't try to use the king's own mail system (with incantations! and lemon juice!) to get your dope -- not have problems with getting your dope". and so on.

Framedragger: "heavily documented and commented without useless comments code", effective use of OOP in python without using classes just for the sake of it, tackling a technologically entangled thing (i could explain but basically there is this "bridge db" which gives "bridges" at some churn rate, but bridges come in different "buckets" (different obfuscation protocol etc),
Framedragger: and hence need multiple hashrings (which ensure uniformly random distribution of them), etc.; many moving parts.)
mircea_popescu: Framedragger see now you're being useful. because the republican notion of "those people" is gendercomits for comments.
Framedragger: trinque: yeah i acknowledge that. well fuck, i need to actually try to respond, but for that i'd need to take a look at subject again. which i can do and probably should do
mircea_popescu: so basically, something more in the vein of literate programming than in the vein of lolzjavascript
asciilifeform: http://btcbase.org/log/2017-06-30#1677848 << lol, what was it, Used Hashtable While Female ?☝︎
a111: Logged on 2017-06-30 20:37 Framedragger: http://btcbase.org/log/2017-06-30#1677344 << use of some specific datastructures (e.g. - and yes uni didn't cover yes - yes, shame on me - hashrings). as well as coding style (yes).
asciilifeform likes to say to pet, 'but you did it While Female !'
mircea_popescu: and she likes to hear, im sure.
asciilifeform: somewhat relatedly, http://trilema.com/2017/promising-and-promises/#comment-122310
Framedragger: asciilifeform: got shown shit effectively while also staring at relevant places of codebase so it was all contextualised well.
Framedragger: s/shown/explained/
mircea_popescu: cool deal.
asciilifeform: Framedragger: do you realize how 'hour of battle' this sounds ?
asciilifeform: ( the sheckley story )
Framedragger: and yeah i guess just literate programming. i was *even younger*, recall
mircea_popescu: no need to apologize for preference and inclination.
asciilifeform: ( or as rebaked by mircea_popescu , http://trilema.com/2014/the-hour-of-reckoning )
mircea_popescu: the whole requirement is to be able to explain, naught more.
asciilifeform: recall the thread where mircea_popescu wrote 'what if you found something in your living room that you hadn't put there'
asciilifeform: 'treat contents of your head with no less respect than the sofa'
asciilifeform: or how did it go.
mircea_popescu: ha!
asciilifeform: and unrelatedly, http://trilema.com/2017/no-such-labs-snsa-march-2017-statement/#comment-122312
asciilifeform: but back to the living room, Framedragger there is quite clearly something in yer head that you hadn't put there, you might want to figure out what it is.
asciilifeform: mebbe the chix was THAT hot. i can't say, i only saw the leg!111
Framedragger: check the video i guess, tastes can differ heh
mircea_popescu: i like how chix is a singular for him, like minx
asciilifeform: not ugly
asciilifeform watched a coupla frames of linked film
asciilifeform: http://btcbase.org/log/2017-06-30#1677861 << if indeed this took place, it is still work for a reasonably middling undergrad, rather than world class☝︎
a111: Logged on 2017-06-30 20:40 Framedragger: basically she inherited this terribad codebase, "bridgedb". she rewrote parts of it (possibly finishing the rest but i didn't stay in touch), and fixed all kinds of weird threading issues by effective use of semaphores etc, which is nothing special, but the result is just so damn easy to read
mircea_popescu: so ?
asciilifeform: so not much

asciilifeform: arguably more than, e.g., rms
mircea_popescu: noblesse oblige.
asciilifeform: and not famous derp, either, but one of the original folx pushing, e.g., working pgp
mircea_popescu: he should have been here. arguably more than, eg, rms.
asciilifeform: aha.
BingoBoingo: Then maybe famous guy like asciilifeform of Loper OS fame ought to email? You've got more history in the field.
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: mine seems to work with 'minus sign'
mircea_popescu: from experience, famous doods aren't worth the paper they'll be buried in
BingoBoingo: I am finding similar results. Seems email isn't functional for anything but "subscription" market that was never subscribed to
mircea_popescu: anyone recall that "protocols of elders of zion" equivalent, "why not hire inerlligent people" ?
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: short of getting on airplane and knocking on his door, i have no further idea
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: frederick the great ? or somebody else's 'don't hire genius'
mircea_popescu: early 1900s americana.
BingoBoingo just back from day in the sun and dirt, memory still in lossy mode
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: possibly h. ford
mircea_popescu: anyway. is passage there about "football glories" who expect they already did their work and will be getting conference chicken free for life.
mircea_popescu: "famous people".
mircea_popescu is sick of "famous people" like of crab apples. let them sit in some other latrine with their "oh i lost my pgp key 20 years ago" zimmerman and their "i dedicate my life to raising impudent street urchins as if they were white people" bernstein and their "oh hi, rng ?" koch and their "o btw, i lied about that laptop" rms everything else.
mircea_popescu: not a single one, you understand me, out of dozens examined, proved upon examination to be more than wasp spit and dung.
mircea_popescu: i've a better chance to find actual human among the barefoot jungle nicas than among the usgistani "famous people".
mircea_popescu: and this isn't even getting into the whole layer of "i make a webcomic about shit i don't grok" "famous" retardation
Framedragger actually recalls essay. https://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Why_I_Never_Hire_Brilliant_Men
mircea_popescu: aa ty

mircea_popescu: i thought all you had was wilting heat and scorpions
sina: we def got the wilting heat in summer, and little scorpions as you approach the equator
mircea_popescu: my stereotypes are offen't.
sina: but you're still allowed to ridicule Craig Wright here
mircea_popescu: are you allowed to peruse drawings of little squares labeled mom "fucking" littler squares labeled daugther and/or dog ?
sina: and despite our local media being incapable of discerning an utter charlatan from a block of wood, those who could, did
sina: nobodies gonna kick down your door for watching pornhub or even bestialityhub
mircea_popescu: to my eyes, the true outstanding imbecillity of the remains of the british empire is this, taking the ustardian pretense that "child pornography" and turning it to the point of "CARTOON!!!! child pornography".
mircea_popescu: that they're thereby negating the very pretense of justification never seems to have occured to them. oh, really, does it harm little drawings ?
sina: ah childporn. yeah they come down on that kind of stuff very hard here
mircea_popescu: this is like saying an idiot ignoring the door and trying to walk through the wall "Came very hard". the hardness isn't the point, the utter idiocy kinda overwhelms it.
mircea_popescu: fucking gumby's, the lot.
sina: to clarify, are you trying to make the point that childporn shouldn't be prosecuted? or that the definition of childporn is overlybroad
mircea_popescu: i am making the point that irrespective of whether some group should be oppressed or not, the "justification" proferred for the oppression is ridiculous.
mircea_popescu: much saner to put all gays in jail because "they offend baby jezuz" than to put all pedos in jail because "they harm little kids"
sina: it wasn't all that long ago that we were doing just that in fact
mircea_popescu: it wasn't.
mircea_popescu: but be that as it may -- the notion that a drawing can be at issue is not only just as stupid as usual, but also crits. now you don't even have any sort of available "i really believe this crap" defense.
mircea_popescu: clearly, there's nothing therew.
sina: well one can argue that all of the lines in "society" are essentially of the same arbitrary construct
sina: it just so happens that this is where one of those lines is laid today
mircea_popescu: one could argue that, but not very successfully. try and argue it re drugs for instance.
sina: um sure? so the line for some drugs is drawn *here*, and other drugs drawn *there*, and depending on a similarly "nothing there" criteria, some peoples lives are ruined and others enriched
mircea_popescu: did you see the economic discussion of the matter in the logs ?
mircea_popescu: or did you read the "how to be a pimp" piece on trilema ?
sina: I think at this point, given countries like Portugal which have decriminalised a lot of drugstuff, it's clear the lines for drugs is just as arbitrary
mircea_popescu: i dun see it.
sina: rly? because in Portugal posession of an ounce of weed is nothing, here it's up to officer discretion (above 1oz is trafficking!), in US if you're black that can be jail, in Indonesia you could get death
sina: clearly it's arbitrary
mircea_popescu: right now it's morning where you live, afternoon where i live and even night in some places. clearly daytimes are arbitrary.
mircea_popescu: wtf reasoning is this.

mircea_popescu: portugal has a large redditard population and nothing else. they need weed for crowd control like the us needs prozac.
mircea_popescu: economy usually hides behind "arbitrary"
sina: sir where I live the sun is rising and where you live it may be falling

sina: mircea_popescu: I can't speak specifically of Portugal redditardation, only use in attempt of "try and argue it re drugs for instance.
mircea_popescu: ~the entire raison d'etre of portugal altogether is as "that place where black chicks from africa go to learn portuguese before being shipped to work in brazil brothels."
sina: really? I would've imagined the flow to go opposite direction
sina: I mean, from brazil to portugal
mircea_popescu: why ?
sina: GDP/capita in brazil is half of portugal? more money for the same skin
BingoBoingo: No money in portugal, because no people left who don't suck
mircea_popescu: except brazil has more industrial base than ~all of europe, and that "per capita" is bullshit as half the country lives on a dollar a day.
mircea_popescu: which leaves you with a bankrupt 5mn strong portugal and 25mn brazillians with 1mn to blow on black hookers.
sina: I guess there is no available "GDP/people who can afford brothel visits" metric
mircea_popescu: gdp is ~meaningless. it is entirely government window dressing in socialist countries, and entirely "wealth divided to random number" in sane countries. the two are distinguished by "inequality index".
