mike_c: This only identifies hands where someone put money in the pot and wasn't in the summary. Cuts it down to 1,591 bad hands out of the 300k
mike_c: I can't actually fix the numbers for you, because the numbers are wrong. Note in the example how it says the small blind was 1 million and change.
mike_c: But that should get you the hands you are interested in.
mike_c: asciilifeform - closed turd client was necessary because I didn't think this would even work, and it was one time thing. so not worth investing time in vs. spinning up VM and then destroying it.
mike_c: !!up Birdman
deedbot: Birdman voiced for 30 minutes.
Birdman: yeah for some reason i think it lists the blind number instead of just what the blind is. that must have been the one million and change blind posted
Birdman: but this is still really helpful helpful, so no luck on listing the hand winners ?
mike_c: you mean fixing the amounts? no, not with all the corrupted numbers in there
Birdman: no the amount but the name that one
Birdman: won*
mike_c: Uh, sure, that's easy. Just for the bad hands you mean?

phf: and the introductions to eliade's book don't go into apologism (unlike evola books, all the english translations require an mandatory disclaimer, that he was a racist, but only a little!1)

spyked: asciilifeform, what do you think of minimal baremetal implementation of Lisp (RISC assembly only) on something like a MIPS core?

phf: i still stand by this point, but with a disclaimer. i think that one of the advantages early hackers had was that they were working from inside their systems. linus was dogfooding linux, symbolics were using every lisp machine at their disposal to build better lisp machines. i think there's inherent folly in planning a revolution from the comfort of our bourgeois machines :p
asciilifeform: phf: the notion is to build a box with sufficient ram, horse, capacity to drive xterm, so that you can sit down on it and edit the fpga config per se.
asciilifeform: closing the ouroborus.
phf: right, but you can already do that with, say, fpga cadr. it's not necessarily a shiny experience though
asciilifeform: cadr sucks because it was designed around off the shelf alu and misc glue of the time.
asciilifeform: nongranular.
asciilifeform: the designers were crippled by the extreme transistorpoverty of the time.
asciilifeform: there's NO reason to emulate, e.g., amd am2900, for all time.
phf: sure, but chinual is extremely detailed and the ~architecture~ can be improved incrementaly. for example brad's cpu is, yes, implemented as an emulator for a discrete circuit. but at the same time it can be isolated from the bus, put into a determenistic harness, and rewritten from the cpu spec in chinual.

asciilifeform: )
asciilifeform just unpacked one of ^ units
spyked: asciilifeform, was going to ask. is there particular ice40 you're recommending? it might be a while until I get one but I looked over the list and they had various types (ultralite etc.)
asciilifeform: ( for n00bz : no, you can't breadboard at 100MHz. gotta have actual board. )
asciilifeform: spyked: for n00bs i recommend 'icestick'
asciilifeform: it has the programmator built in
asciilifeform: and usb uart.
asciilifeform: so no fiddling with wires, programmator dongles, etc. needed.
asciilifeform: but the only ram you get is the 32k of sram on the crystal.
spyked: so from ^ the "ultra"er models don't work with the open source toolchain? I was looking at one of the breakout boards earlier
asciilifeform: 'icestick' is readily available for 10-20 usd wherever protojunk is sold
asciilifeform: spyked: only the ice40 series
asciilifeform: it has a plain matrix-of-LUTs structure, no built-in periphs
asciilifeform: which made it a realistic reversing target, and it was apparently successfully reversed.
asciilifeform: if you're used to working with, e.g., xilinx 'spartan' or 'virtex' series, it will feel VERY tight.
asciilifeform: ( but, i will point out, is MUCH roomier than the xc9572 cpld used in FUCKGOATS )
spyked hates xilinx with passion. if only because of the bloated software ☟︎
asciilifeform: i last leeched the xilinx hog in 2011 and don't intend to ever update.
asciilifeform: i will be phasing xilinx out of my product line entirely, also.
asciilifeform: ice40 leaves a great deal to be desired ( it is VERY small, comparatively, and doesn't come in a no-flash version, and who knows for how long it will remain in print ) but is by far the closest thing that currently exists to the sane fpga.
spyked: this is gonna be fun. asciilifeform, I haven't looked into hw since 2010, so there might be stupid questions coming your way once I start playing with this. btw, I don't mind getting my hands dirty with soldering, I just have very rudimentary tools for now.
asciilifeform: spyked: unless you are VERY well-equipped, you will not be soldering ice40.
asciilifeform: ( iirc the smallest package is a pqfp-64 )
asciilifeform: largest, that is.
asciilifeform: ( physically )
asciilifeform: the 8k ( largest gate count ) is sold ONLY in bga.

jhvh1: asciilifeform: The operation succeeded.
asciilifeform: 'Ten US Navy sailors are missing after a US Navy guided-missile destroyer collided with an oil tanker east of Singapore early Monday, the fourth accident in Asian waters involving a US warship in 2017'
asciilifeform: 'USS John S. McCain' didjaknow. ☟︎
asciilifeform: 'The McCain is named for the father and grandfather of US Sen. John McCain.' lol!!
BingoBoingo: ty asciilifeform
asciilifeform: spyked: you don't need to re-voice unless you got unvoiced (typically from connection reset)
spyked: thanks for the tip. didn't know, initially thought there was a time limit for that
asciilifeform: spyked: nope, that's only for guests who get manually up'd by someone.
spyked: anyway, I ordered three icesticks (because free shipping, and would rather pay for extra hardware than shipping)
asciilifeform: yea they're 'party favour' cheap
hanbot: say, where's the current list of trb nodes? http://thebitcoin.foundation/trusted-nodes.html << accurate? ☟︎
asciilifeform: hanbot: the 1st two are mine ( #1 -- zoolag, which is midway through a resyncing, on account of a dead ssd ; 2nd is dulap, which is humming along )
asciilifeform: the rest, i have nfi
asciilifeform: trinque's deedbot may be one of the remaining ☟︎
asciilifeform: ( ask him re current ip )
asciilifeform: iirc jurov has a working node in europe somewhere
ben_vulpes: hanbot: .77 is mine
hanbot: yeah, ty. i wonder if it wouldn't be wise to update that list monthly as part of reporting etc. ☟︎
hanbot: aha
asciilifeform: and BingoBoingo possibly also
asciilifeform: hanbot: imho that'd be spiffy
asciilifeform: iirc mircea_popescu has at least 1 public node
asciilifeform: and possibly somebody else also ( shinohai ? )
asciilifeform: i don't much like the phrase 'trusted nodes', when you connect to trb node, you get plaintext tcp, and 0 guarantees re who or what you're actually talking to. ☟︎
ben_vulpes: republican outposts in the sea of shit
asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: via mitmtron
ben_vulpes: world is a fuck
asciilifeform: chronically very frustrated enemy, in tilt, and he does whatever he can with his few hammers. in this case it happens to be slowing tx propagation.
asciilifeform: ( several cases documented in the logs, by mircea_popescu and others )
asciilifeform: all of the pattern 'have you seen this tx?' 'no...' 'but i sent it to your node and got an ack' ☟︎
trinque: http://btcbase.org/log/2017-08-21#1701601 << correct, 3rd item ☝︎

asciilifeform: !~later tell ben_vulpes was it you who had a trb patch abolishing the idiotic truncation of block and tx hashes in debug.log ? where did it go ?

ben_vulpes: asciilifeform: 'tis sitting in my workdir, did not imagine it to be useful to others
ben_vulpes: or hm where did it go
BingoBoingo: <asciilifeform> and BingoBoingo possibly also << Yes, ip available to qualified inquirers
ben_vulpes: anyways, trivial 2-liner
ben_vulpes: if it were to be vpatched, it should abolish truncation everywhere in the codebase
ben_vulpes: i struggle to imagine the poverty of system that behavior was intended to be useful on ☟︎
asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: iirc it's 15-20 lines ( all ~same snip tho, in each, of the truncation )
ben_vulpes: sounds right by my recollection
asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: if you find it, plox to repost
ben_vulpes: aye aye
BingoBoingo: Does anyone remember mp's piece on trilema where he talks about the capital crime of whiny bitch aggressing beyond his station?
