shinohai: Were I as rich as Sr. Popescu, every night I'd pay 0.02 BTC (adjusted for inflation) to hear these magnificent stories.
mircea_popescu: heh, recall when 0.02 seemed too low ?
shinohai: As such, I only hear them when asked to trasludar
shinohai: 0,02 has a nice ring to it though ... 0.01 cada teta

mircea_popescu: aha
trinque: I had a node last night that was stuck a few hundred blocks back until restarted, then caught up quickly.

trinque: curious whether people's nodes are still receiving transactions and other protocol chatter while not receiving blocks; mine was, usually is.
mircea_popescu: about what now ?!
mircea_popescu: trinque usually how it goes
mircea_popescu: the original conceptualization of the blocks/blockchain suffers from evident lack of experience ; the designer mind (constructively regarded, there was scarce design gone into the prototype) seems unaware of the actual order of priority of things, so what if blocks wait for txn etc.

mircea_popescu: truth be told elements of original bitcoin suffered very much the same fate as human elements of the early bitcoin : on the long term, practice is a weighing machine
mircea_popescu: they got weighted.
asciilifeform: 'Without Core sabotaging BTC by artificially imposing the block size limit, bitcoin would be much more widely used today. Heck, countries like Venezuela might even have everyday citizens really using it to buy bread, milk, toilet paper. Many African countries could use it too.' << lol!!

mircea_popescu: recall back when it was "CYPRUS!!!" ? or for that matter "ARGENTINA!!!" ?
asciilifeform: aha
mircea_popescu: they'll never run out of "obvious" idiocy, the schmucks.
mircea_popescu: "artificially imposed limits" ie, "you are scum and may not interact with things".

mircea_popescu: "are you a young leader getting ready to change the world ? consider procreation instead. god put procreation on earth to keep monkeys such as you busy! and it works, and has worked for generations!"
asciilifeform: somehow the fact of ~traditional~ bitcoin not quite paying for its network to fully exist, is not obvious to the plankton
asciilifeform: but for gb blox -- the stone soup, will somehow materialize and pay, veril
asciilifeform: y
mircea_popescu: actually what's obvious is the other part : SOMEWHAT paying means there's some paying going on ?! HOLY SHIT NO
mircea_popescu: it's not that they couldn't pay for the "house" and "education" and etc.
mircea_popescu: it's that THEY COULD PAY NO FRACTION OF IT!
mircea_popescu: and nothing else is supposed to! bitcoin as it stands currently is throwing the curve.
mircea_popescu: that's their problem, and what they set out to resolve, uncomprehendingly but with all the dedication of biology.
asciilifeform: !~later tell apeloyee i studied your algo, it (aside from truly massive cost, that would annihilate savings from newton, or barrett, or just about any other trick) ~still leaks~, because shifting by >wordsize is a fundamentally different op from shifting <wordsize; and the only way for this to not be true is for all shifts to happen as a series of wordsize shifts; and a shift by ffawidth-1 (max shiftness) would then consist of ffawor
asciilifeform: dness shift operations; and ergo all shifts must consist of ffawordness shift ops, as i described in http://btcbase.org/log/2017-09-20#1716343 .☝︎
a111: Logged on 2017-09-20 21:54 asciilifeform: e.g., N is a number to shift, Q is shift amt, R is result, S = l_shift(N, 1); mux(S, R, R, iszero(Q - 1)); S = l_shift(N, 1); mux(S, R, R, iszero(Q - 2)); ...... mux(S, R, R, iszero(Q - (width-1)))

a111: Logged on 2017-09-20 21:37 asciilifeform: afaik this cannot be done without a physical barrel shifter of the given bitness.
asciilifeform: d00d was right in his observation that you ~could~ use a normalizing/denormalizing ( though proof is still a first class bitch ) algo, IF you had a secret 1..ffawidth shift. but you don't.
