asciilifeform: and been a while since i synced from empty
asciilifeform: worth a comparison
BingoBoingo: <asciilifeform> worth a comparison << Aha someone steps up to duplicate my December 2016 to May 2017 experiment!
BingoBoingo: But yes, phf makefile mod powers my OpenBSD builds.
asciilifeform: wedge at 168000 apparently.
asciilifeform: and nfi why.
asciilifeform: ( this ain't an ancient liquishit press )
asciilifeform: mod6, phf didja see 168kisms on openbsd?
asciilifeform: i seem to recall.
phf: i remember people wedging around there, but i didn't personally observe it
asciilifeform: i walked the logs , found no record of a nailed root cause or finalsolution
asciilifeform: fucking disgrace, is what this is
asciilifeform: i duneven know if to blame bsd ( how..? ) or the imbecile's sync algo where all depends on who first node syphilitically fucks on warmup
asciilifeform: ( and where if the addnode people get hiccupped it will pick a rando scum to rely on, and never drop him no matter how many hours, days, WEEKs without newblock incoming)
BingoBoingo addressed by restarting bitcoind on wedge
phf covers his face
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: the absolute most total nogood.jog
asciilifeform: does not meet cement standard.
asciilifeform: trb on linux : does
phf: that's a nice round number too, 168000
BingoBoingo: last sync test WAS trb on linux
asciilifeform: ( i have 0 instances of wedged bring up on linux since mircea_popescu's bdb patch, in 30 or so shots on machines in various spots )
BingoBoingo: http://btcbase.org/log-search?q=168000
asciilifeform: phf: there was a bdb idiocy iirc that wedged at 168k
asciilifeform: but fixed by mp's patch 2.5y ago. and apparently unfixd by bsd
asciilifeform: somehow
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: i was reading plusminusweek of each of those search res for past 2h
BingoBoingo: Assumed, dropping for other esteemed readers

a111: Logged on 2017-03-28 04:32 asciilifeform: mod6: imho manual knobs ~for unwedging~ are a fundamental mistake. nodes shouldn't be wedgeable, period. and the only use for a wedged node is to learn why it wedged and to make said scenario impossible in the future.
asciilifeform: anyway phf mod6 BingoBoingo et al taking suggestions ( other than the beneath-contempt nonsense of 'reboot and jiggle the handle blindly until it works and forget about cement fleet ' )
phf: i don't remember every suggesting anything remotely similar. my suggestion would be to debug it, and solve the problem, rather than "mp's fix somehow magically resolves it"
asciilifeform: debug how?
phf: well, if i were approaching this, i'd replay to 167998 or so, setup a script to ensure that every time i start trb it starts from that state. i would then see if on forward play it would wedge. i would then investigate what is the nature of wedging, and slowly instrument the code along the various paths to tell me where exactly it decides to stop doing the right thing, etc.
asciilifeform: replay??!
asciilifeform: how?
phf: split the current blocks, eat block until 167998, then on each restart copy the 167998 state folder over the settings folder
asciilifeform: eatblock doesn't replicate the unknown stream of wild sewage that thing ate.
asciilifeform: nor the timings.
phf: if it consistently wedges at 168000 across various machines and settings then it's not a question of wild sewage
asciilifeform: 1 particular machine

asciilifeform: on 1 particular os previously afaik untested
phf: you replay to 167998, you then let it run till 168000 on the network. if it doesn't wedge with that setup, than you have two possibilities. it is either a heisenbug, or you need to replay to an earlier block, say 167000 and let that run on the wild network, etc.
asciilifeform: my suspicion is that the bdb locks patch somehow has no effect when bdb built on netbsd
phf: ~you can't reason about locks patch~
asciilifeform: i am increasingly of the notion that i can't rreason about ANY of it
phf: until you can actually reproduce the nature of locks patch vs. block (or whatever wedges)
asciilifeform: all this time i thought there were reproducibles. but it is nonsense to speak of reproducibles in 200Mb of liquishit dep that does whatever the fuck it wants

asciilifeform: went away on linux ( and apparently openbsd ) from locks patch, and that was the end of the thread
asciilifeform: if i am mistaken, mod6 et al plox to say when and where it was resolved.
mod6: so run on linux then
mod6: I just rolled in, gimme some time to catch up and figure out whats what.
asciilifeform: i'd like to get OFF linux.
asciilifeform: naively thought 'i'll start with the smallest trb node!'

asciilifeform: see, it may seem to mod6 that asciilifeform is simply being difficult, whereas what asciilifeform found was that WE NEVER ACTUALLY FIXED 168K

asciilifeform: turns out -- not.
asciilifeform: until this 'not' remains, trb ain't a program, it's a voodoo incantation.

asciilifeform: i'ma go to bed because if i keep at this, will pop a blood vessel somewhere.
asciilifeform bbl.
mod6: Look. First off, no I don't believe we ever found the cause of this. I remember pulling my hair out trying to figure it out -- there are logs indicating as much.
mod6: I seem to remember this being specific to BSD, and in non-deterministic form. And looks like gernika for instance just simply resync'd and it seemed to not hit it again, for reasons yet unknown: http://btcbase.org/log/2015-07-08#1193289☝︎

BingoBoingo: http://www.jameslafond.com/article.php?id=8559&pr=1 << And it comes FOR the darkness too

mircea_popescu: in 60 txn
mircea_popescu: and finally 168002 is 0000000000000a08f0e6aa70d9f8b990c48c2d48c577393c73b9acb9a55d12cb also 28.6kb long, 61 txn
mircea_popescu: none of these are problematic in either the "new boltons to protocol" p2sh sense or size sense.
asciilifeform: yeah i didnt think so
asciilifeform: just happens to be the straw that breaks camel's back
asciilifeform: probably bdb camel
mircea_popescu: largest tx in 2 is 3854 b ; in 1 1519b
asciilifeform: betcha it ignores maxlocks setting when built on bsd.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform these are too small for that to be touched.
asciilifeform: the sum, the sum of them
asciilifeform: not the tx individually.
mircea_popescu: historically the problem is "o noes, orphan chain", but i have nfi who would be owning or propagating orphan chains at that height.
mircea_popescu: i mean what, they kept 5 years of history ?
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: sure, wai not
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform wait, the sum of what ?
asciilifeform: i wouldn't put it past anybody, to do anything
mircea_popescu: lol yeah, well, i would put it past "people themselves" to keep archives.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: total db index mass at that point in the sync
mircea_popescu: you understand the lock thing refers mostly to handling reorgs, it isn't historical count or anything.
mircea_popescu: bitcoin is just poorly written allocates a potentially infinite number of locks as part of handling the last block.
asciilifeform: i will readily admit that i dun have a proper model of how bdb liquishit works
mircea_popescu: anyway, i quoted the blocks by hash so you can check if those are the ones you're struggling with, as opposed to magicalorphans.
asciilifeform: and people who write db systems with locking, period, oughta be rendered for soap
mircea_popescu: what, no more semaphores in computing ?
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i already walked the blox on the node in question, found 0 peculiar orphans
mircea_popescu: aite.\
asciilifeform: i oughta have put this on record yea
mircea_popescu believes.
asciilifeform: and while we're on subj , semaphores/locks come from broken algos which in turn come from idiot arch
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform that'll be the day, free traffic on the supermation inforhighway...
asciilifeform: the correct world is 'dataflow' (see logz) where every op signals output-ready, and no op proceeds until all inputs signal same.
asciilifeform: but this is whole own thread.
asciilifeform bbl, meat
mircea_popescu: amusingly, that'd prolly how comps would work if women made them originally.

mircea_popescu: how's lyf been treatin' ya mats
mats: notbad, went out on a boat yesterday n thinking about whether to go to a casino to play holdem
mats: can't beat that on-site experience, secondhand smoke and all
mats: and you?
mircea_popescu: not bad at all.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform http://p.bvulpes.com/pastes/1srcg/?raw=true
mircea_popescu: mats i tried to go play at local casino. dumped my chips half hour in because i got this unbearable feeling im at a florida retirement home playing canasta with the inmates.
mircea_popescu: reason #5498509865409 to despise herdemocracy, "peace and human rights" bullshit : it makes poker games indistinguishable from mahjong.
mats: i don't follow at all
mats: costa rican poker is played by... retirees? and they're no good?
mircea_popescu: they're mediocre, neither amazing nor terrible. but they're old, and stupid, and lazy. and not the sort of person i want to be around at all.
mats: yeah, that sucks. i go to casinos because i enjoy the idea of robbing tourists, retirees, and chumps
mircea_popescu: if you rob them worth a coupla hundred an hour, which is probably an overstatement, you'd make about the same as a silicon valley "engineer".
mats: its a fantasy ofc, everybody catches a bad beat sooner or later - but on a good day over ten hours i might hit 25-30/hr
mircea_popescu: mats and if you live to be 60 doing this, you'll look back on a life of tedium.
mats: i believe even top-tier pros struggle to do 50/hr consistently just grinding games - the real money is in tournaments
mircea_popescu: actually, the real money is in doing something else. the real sluts, the real errythings too.
mats: hmm, yes, adacryptopoker
mircea_popescu: at some past glory age poker was, at least mythically, the way to actually sit at the same table with people who matter, and thereby actually have some sort of access to the meaning of the world. these days...
mircea_popescu: strikes me as too close to "social worker" for comfort.
mircea_popescu: anyway, that's just me, didn't mean to gloom & doom.
mircea_popescu: !~calc 81600 / 2087
jhvh1: mircea_popescu: 81600 / 2087 = 39.0991854336368
mats: https://www.rt.com/news/397724-israeli-stink-bombs-india
mircea_popescu: (official numbers -- 81.6k is the average salary for sv intern, apparently ; 2087 the yearly work hours). turns out they make 40 bux.
mats: thats not very good after COLA. 1k/mo for two people to share 1bed apt in e.g. santa clara
mircea_popescu: true ; casino life's not much cheaper though.
mats: public transportation is GRIDS in sv, at least the san jose area, so... tack on car ownership costs too
mircea_popescu: lmao i was thinking, since when the fuck do indians care about stench.
mircea_popescu: mats yes, but intern can then progress to independent contractor / work for self and cut the costs to 0. this is what say 5 years' experience buys you. 5 years' experience in the casino buys you jack.
mats: i can see that
mircea_popescu: it's just not the 20s anymoar.
mircea_popescu: (this point, in either "intern can progress" or "sit in forum and access meaning" presentation, is the fundamental mechanism of both "rounders" and that "poolhall junkies" cheapo rehack of it : that the dude playing can decide the girl's future, a degree of magnitude above her own capacity. take that away -- it's not worth doing. and you sure as fuck ain't meeting the head of ny law firm socially, and play $X with him so he g
mircea_popescu: ives the slut a career)
mircea_popescu: but that was the glamor : "honey, you don't suck cock because you can't, not because you don't want to ; but even if you sucked cock, and even if you were extremely good at it, it'd still take you months to manage what i can do overnight if i fucking feel like it".
mats: in other news, there are killer intl air fare deals this year
mircea_popescu: speaking of "GRIDS", here's a very typical, and very unwittingly amusing offering : http://humantransit.org/2010/02/the-power-and-pleasure-of-grids.html
mats: found a $500, one stop, round-trip ticket to beijing from boston
mircea_popescu: mats going ?
mats: during thanksgiving though. haven't decided yet
mircea_popescu: ask the author, or generally any "city planner" what are the wrong assumptions they hid in the nonsense ? they'll look at you like you're from mars. yet... 1. all people = all other people. there's exactly 0 concept of social hierarch. 2. all people == spherical cpus in a vacuum. really bitch, i'll keep track of your stupid grids, and CONNECT ? i'm not fucking connecting lol, wtf do i care where the bus is at.
mircea_popescu: "if all people were perfectly attentive, perfectly intelligent and perfectly dedicated to the task of making our plan work ; and if they were perfectly equal and perfectly convinced we should be telling them what to do in detail ; THEN here's a solution to a problem!"
mats: heh, i wrote GRIDS but really meant AIDS
mircea_popescu: lol!
mats: theres not really any kinda grid layout in sj, and bus routes are so awful that many employees take shuttles staged in the morning at local grocery store parking lot
mircea_popescu: there's 0 way to have functional transportation in a city of aspies.
mircea_popescu: their problem is that they all think they're important. such people can not transport ; they must stay put.
mircea_popescu: hence the whole "work from home" craze.
mircea_popescu: at home, yes every single last one dork out of the 20mn can think himself overpoweringly important. at least until the broadband craps out.
mats: http://sfist.com/2015/12/21/facebook_offers_employees_10k_incen.php unreal
mircea_popescu: aha. exactly it!
mircea_popescu: 1920s waitress would live in whatever accomodations she could find within walking distance of her bar ; and go to downtown like every other weekend and think this a major, awesome accomplishment. but 2020s waitress (aka "software engineer") exepcts to be able to travel all over the city each day. what, he's from brooklyn ? that shouldn't mean he can't work in the lower east side, what's he, some kind of slave ?!?!
mircea_popescu: and this is just you know, high level executives aka waitresses. if you look at 1920s rank and file, they lived in dorms within the textile mill complex. kinda like universities today, except you know, 30 to the room and with hall monitors turning off the lights at 8:30.
mats: i look forward to seeing 'hyperloop' in production, this should accelerate the death of vast road networks in usa
mircea_popescu: it's really a remake of the french tgv neh ?
mircea_popescu: (itself a remake of japanese equivs.) worked remarkably well at home.
mats: yes, top claimed speed for hyperloop is about twice top french tgv speed
mircea_popescu: in any case they're not making the la to sf item for the quoted 5 to 15bn. boston's big dig, a project a degree of mangnitude smaller, ended up costing well over a trillion, and this is 1999 dollars. also taking five x the time, but we leave that ot the side.
mats: putting it in production will test the massively inflated suburban and urban property values
mircea_popescu: so i wouldn't worry -- the only way this happens is if the chinese do a us-equivalent of their plan to colonize europe, and front the coupla trillion needed.
mats: so that boston real estate looks more like... tokyo real estate
mircea_popescu: wait i thought they were doing it on west coast ?
mircea_popescu: there's an east coast variant ?!
mircea_popescu: (there's been a long time train running boston to wash dc, reasonably fast, reasonably popular in the 80s. meanwhile gradually disused)
mats: not actually boston because nobody apparently wants to come here (see dearth of airlines using BOS as hub) but http://www.npr.org/sections/thetwo-way/2017/07/20/538328487/elon-musk-says-he-has-verbal-ok-to-build-n-y-d-c-hyperloop
mircea_popescu: lol.
mircea_popescu: i have nfi what these folk are sniffing, but it must be some sort of heavily psychotropic mold infected their conference centers.
mircea_popescu: musk doesn't have 1% of 1% of the money he needs to build such a thing. wtf already.
mircea_popescu: the "buying russia" item was lulzy enough, but still, explainable in terms of ra ra ra. but this nonsense is simply demented.
mats: usg has generously provided musk with truckloads of cash, so, i find it probable he's not full of shit
mircea_popescu: the us does not have, even if it sold itself out, the cash to half-complete this.
mircea_popescu: there's an absolute limit turkey dollars put on "tower to the moon" efforts : if you have at most 100 turkeys you can commit, printing further pictures of a turkey on paper will not help you in your effort to build the "cart driven by 101 turkeys". because the 101th physically does not exist.
mircea_popescu: (we're not going to even go in discussions of low pressure airflow, which is a horror the wide-eyed proponents are not intellectually equipped to consider ; let's just simply talk in terms of "i can't get a plumber to fuck my wife the same week but i'll somehow get together workers willing to dig a ditch so and so long".)
mats: hmm, TIL 'chromeOS' is a gentoo since 2010
mircea_popescu: i had nfi it existed in 2010.
mircea_popescu: but, usg corp "producing" item in the vein of linux with serials filed off is no surprise by now. no turkeys, no alternative.
mats: better than ubuntu.
mats: tesla OS is ubuntu!
mats: looking forward to autopilot-induced crashes because some jokester taped malicious input to rear windshield
