asciilifeform: 'questions of a possible microwave or radio wave device .... If that were the case, the sounds wouldn’t show up on a recording' << and anyone should believe the clip is genuine article precisely why.
asciilifeform: sounds, btw, entirely not unlike 'microwaved' audio pickup .
ben_vulpes: so i'm fiddling with some source delivery pipeline, and i discover that some asshole has put executable code into his cl .asd files; which i suppose is fine in some circumstances, but i'm doing Terrible Things over here and the asd's aren't getting concatenated with everything else and so just to add another entry to my list of folks whose decisions have made my life harder i look this dude up and can ya
ben_vulpes: believe it he proudly writes ethereum shits now
asciilifeform: wat's a source delivery pipeline
mircea_popescu: i don't get it, i can make a plain light colorized image of an ultraviolet source, but i can't make a sound pattern of some microwave ?
mircea_popescu: wtf, nobody goes to school anymore ?
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: anybody can make anything out of anything, esp. if the inputs are fictional.
ben_vulpes: asciilifeform: tiny set of scripts to get all of the source for a project from box a to box b
mircea_popescu: that's part 2 of our show.
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes i am entirely unsurprised. the "scale bitcoin" shitheads + the "exciting blockchain technologee" shitheads + the "we are marketing" dogeheads are pretty much === the cancer that has eaten foss.

asciilifeform: lol
mircea_popescu: hm, there's no way to pay it without the number, huh. !!received-invoices step mandatory.
trinque: I could have it burp the invoice number in logs if people don't care that it does
mircea_popescu: im sure they do.
trinque: I'd have thought so yeah
mircea_popescu: the right thing would be for it to execute !!pay name if unambiguous and protest otherwise it needs an invoice number (or heck, just pay everything ?)
mircea_popescu: but still up in the air this, needs more human strokes.
trinque: anyhow ccmtacks gotta pass the decrypted otp back to deedbot like with !!up
mircea_popescu: maybe have a magic !!pay joe all ? and btw, why is it not simply !!pay ?
trinque: I don't like overloading commands

trinque: that sends a defined amount to a person, hasn't to do with invoicing

trinque: not eggog, it's a string
mircea_popescu: ccmtacks yeah but trinque runs it and if he says it won't then i tend to believe him.
trinque: asciilifeform: there's no hot wallet here; I'm marching my ass over to another box and making signed tx, then popping into a trb with polarbeard patch for sendrawtransaction
ccmtacks: ah, sorry trinque, I didn't know that
mircea_popescu: this sounds like great slavegirl punishment.
asciilifeform: woah srs hand-crank reactor rod control
mircea_popescu: ccmtacks sorry for all the hassle ; re-do once more, use a 1something address like god meant it.
trinque: idea is to tighten the loop until it is a matter of <1min
mircea_popescu: i believe.
trinque: then from there, hot wallet, but one where refilling it is both human operated and quite easy

ccmtacks: ok, I believe that now is everything ok
mircea_popescu: well done!
trinque: ccmtacks: actual amount will be less the tx fee. I'll fire that off in a bit.
mircea_popescu: o darn i forgot the tx fee.
ccmtacks: trinque: ok, no problem at all.
trinque: nbd. there needs to be a whole tx weighing mechanism in order to let people know what that amount will be in the response.
mircea_popescu: ccmtacks next time, remind me i'll tack on an extra coupla bucks.
ccmtacks: ok mate, no problem. I wanted to ask you regarding the fees, however, this time I've just been looking to do everything right
mircea_popescu: anyway, simple way to sell anything for bitcoin : get a !!deposit from deedbot, give out that address.
trinque: well, give out the amount. otherwise it's not going to right account
mircea_popescu: make sure you get exact ammts though, otherwise there's trouble. if deedbot says 0.044236666 then make sure op sends exactly, all the way to the 6666.
trinque: sorry, jumped the gun.
trinque: this thing obviously pairs up with a buy/sell board quite well
trinque: so much to do
mircea_popescu: aha
mircea_popescu: trinque zinx ran me a grand or so so far, but i would way the fuck rather blow a grand on that than what the fuck is the alternative
mircea_popescu: pay a coupla dumb hos who don't even hooker for a living to sit among some plastic shits at a "conference", spend 10x that much ?
mircea_popescu: noty.
ccmtacks: Noted, I've read a lot of the help material, so I actually get it how it all works now, well a good part of it :)
mircea_popescu: ccmtacks the important part is that unlike websites etc it's actually secure.
mircea_popescu: as long as you keep your rsa key safe, of course.

shinohai: asciilifeform: think it was a scriba feature .... though bot appears to be present
mod6: mornin'
mod6: that's a mighty useful feature too btw.
mod6: we've gotta have that.
shinohai: Heya mod6 .... morning
mod6: how you doin' shinohai?
shinohai: Not too bad, got jhvh1 back online now catching up on logs
mod6: sweet
mod6: ive been writing unit test for ffa
shinohai: Awesum ... I'm going to take a look at the thing asciilifeform posted last night later, gotta get Excedrin for preemptive strike on headaches lol
mod6: haha. werd.
mod6: i don't have a ton of coverage yet -- just mainly around the fz bitwise ops, fz_add, fz_mult, handfull of others.
mod6: im hoping to get some tests around the shifting procedures possibly today or this weekend. alf's latest changes from yesterday would fit into that as well.
mod6: i hope to glean some deeper understanding of the secret shifting from these tests as well.
mod6: im certain that even the tests that I do have are missing certain cases -- but its a starting point. and when I publish these, the hope is that people here can help fill in the gaps of the coverage so we can use this as a means to ensure that we do not regress as changes occur to the code.
mod6: again, these are unit tests, not functional, integration, or performance tests. meaning: i simply call a (so far public) procedure/function within ffa with specific parameters, and expect specific outputs.
mod6: once we have some solid unit tests in place, i'll look at some functional tests as a higher-level way to ensure we don't regress as well. but that's a bit later yet.
mod6: probably won't even start until we're closer to a finalized version of ffa.
asciilifeform: mod6: the key imho re a ffa tester, is that it gotta exist ~outside~ of ffa, and use a traditional, known-to-produce-correct-numberz ( and ideally, more than one ) arithm stack
asciilifeform: mod6: my current ( unpublished, quite yet, because it relies on details of 'p' ) item, uses python's
mod6: sure.
asciilifeform: mod6: you could just as readily use, e.g., gnu 'bc'
mod6: that's more of a higher-level, functional style test.
asciilifeform: or perl; or even mpi(c)
mod6: i believe there to be a lot of merit to having unit tests around the specific procedures and functions in ffa.
asciilifeform: mod6: whichever type of test you're making, it certainly won't hurt.
mod6: so, that's what I'm spending time on now anyway. and, making good progress in a short amount of time. however, ya, many gaps i msure.
mod6: *im sure
asciilifeform: the tricky bit is to avoid getting into 'quis custodiet ipsos custodes' trap.
mod6: say what
asciilifeform: 'now gotta write tests for the tests' etc
mod6: ah. right.
mod6: well, they're hopefully clear enough to be understood.
asciilifeform: some ops you can easily check result of, by hand ( shifts, add/sub )
mod6: right.
mod6: we'll see how hairy it gets :]
asciilifeform: have fun mod6
mod6: the fz_mux wasn't too bad, etc.
asciilifeform: keep in mind that ffa ( esp. the more recent items ) will change.
asciilifeform: and incidentally don't assume that the current forms, are the ideal and shortest/clearest possible
mod6: to understand the thing, one can simply do the: B ^ ((S - 1) & (A ^ B)) on a calc
asciilifeform: it is quite conceivable that you can turn up an improved/cycle-shaving/clearer etc version of this or that
asciilifeform: apeloyee for instance did today
mod6: aha, this indeed may be the case - something found. but the main interest "does it do what it ~should~ do, given these inputs"
asciilifeform: aha
mod6: that's the aim anyway. but, yah, might find something along the way too.
mod6: ANNND. hopefully will grok moar as well.
mod6: a way of doing necessary work, and forcing myself to do the maff at the same time.
asciilifeform: mod6: there are serious ughs that need fixing, also. for instance to get rid of 'Natural' and 'Positive' and throw out the mess of conversions to and from Word
asciilifeform: the current item is problematic on (hypothetical, i don't have one for which gnat builds) 8-bit archs
asciilifeform: because 8 bits is not enough to index a useful number of 8-bit words
mod6: The hope here is... when these changes are made, the given inputs still match the expected outputs.

asciilifeform: note that this will result in exactly the same binary as builds now, on pc
mod6: see... i thought so too.. because yesterday i was digging up our conversation from august of '15 where we were looking at gnupg -- that night we had like 69 pastes.
asciilifeform: but will make the code 1) more readable 2) buildable for 8bit, in theory, cpu
mircea_popescu: http://btcbase.org/log/2017-10-13#1724860 << god damn it, nothing worse than unreliable archives.☝︎
a111: Logged on 2017-10-13 11:19 apeloyee: by the way, the bot which saved pastes on archive.is doesn't seem to do it anymore.
mod6: and Framedragger came along and did that handy thing and archived all that stuff. really, can't live without that bot.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform afaik it was a scriba feature. Framedragger !!1111
asciilifeform: i tend to distrust archives, save things manually
asciilifeform: esp. archives run by fuckknowswhom
mod6: that is fair.
mod6: but for the ages.
mod6: unless you wanna give me access to your drive
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform theoretically it also gets the zips. at least iirc.
asciilifeform: archives are a necessary thing, but really oughta be auto-mirrored
mod6: <+asciilifeform> so there has to be a synthetic (i.e. Unsigned_32 ) type , that on archs that have narrower bitness than that, ends up a doubleword << ah, i see.
asciilifeform: 1 d00d and his box is really quite same as ' asciilifeform's hdd '
mircea_popescu: myeah.
mod6: it adds so much to the history though. being able to see wtf we were talking about.
mircea_popescu: i am loath to put "and load this website" into the eg log bot spec.
mircea_popescu: mod6 yeah.
asciilifeform: mod6: current ffa has no problem building and running with 32bit word; but it will not do useful work in 8/16bit msdos, and this needs fix ( i described simple fix above. my priority atm tho is barrettron and practical rsa demo )
mod6: asciilifeform: sure. makes sense.
mod6: anyway, i don't wanna be a distraction. am simply, hopefully, on a useful side-quest.
mircea_popescu: http://btcbase.org/log/2017-10-13#1724903 << this is why i wouldn't recommend writing tests for it for any other reason than learning / checking. it's a prototype yet, only the growth spur should be checked as it were.☝︎
a111: Logged on 2017-10-13 15:14 asciilifeform: keep in mind that ffa ( esp. the more recent items ) will change.
asciilifeform: mod6: even if you only read it, and did not write, it is still not wasted time
asciilifeform: i intend for the whole lot of l1, to eventually read it
asciilifeform: and understand it the way a man packing a parachute understands.
mod6: agreed ^
asciilifeform: in the end you will have 'written ffa' nearly same as asciilifeform had.
asciilifeform: or at any rate this is the condition for success
trinque: actually mircea_popescu's solution to forcing miners to hold all blocks could conceivably used to hire hosting for the archive from whoever has space. folks register with eg deedbot, must produce hash of all archived items at interval to receive a small bitcoin payout, flowing from subscribers to the archive service.
mod6: mircea_popescu: understood. it is more a learning process than anything at this point.
mircea_popescu: trinque entirely feasible but let's revisit in next year.
trinque: must also provide a web endpoint for the archive, etc
mircea_popescu: mod6 yee
trinque: sure, not going to break ground on it
mircea_popescu: mod6 in any case don't completely abandon the trb-v castle, you're like our last guy there i fear
asciilifeform: trinque, mircea_popescu : this is actually a variation on an ancient and imho interesting theme, the 'aeternity service' or what was it called, early attempt at 'bitcoinism' and p2p warez combo, 'proof of storage'
mircea_popescu: which, incindentally, is pretty terrible.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform aha.
mod6: mircea_popescu: aha, indeed Sir.
mod6: speaking of trinque's usage of polarbeard's rawtx vpatch -- im planning to get deeper into that this month.
mircea_popescu: should ideally be v-ified properly etc.
mircea_popescu: !~seen polarbeard
jhvh1: mircea_popescu: I have not seen polarbeard.
asciilifeform: ( incidentally recall 1980s game copyprotection lameness with elementary 'proof of storage' ?? 'answer, player, what is 51th word on 11th page paragraph 3 !1111' )
mircea_popescu: eh wth.
mod6: iirc I had created a proper vpatch of the thing last year, but we never wrapped up all the testing. i'd like to revisit that.
mircea_popescu: apr 2016.
mod6 looks
mircea_popescu: anyway, i tried /invite polarbeard but * polarbeard :No such nick/channel ; anyone know him irl drop a line ?
mircea_popescu: pity guy left, totally got teh wrong impression re tmsr.
asciilifeform: iirc was in ben_vulpes's l2 ? or trinque's ?
mircea_popescu: a, was he ?
asciilifeform: somebody's distant l2 ( l3 ) ? d00d
asciilifeform: iirc he ended up barfing from 'all my patches rejected!111'

asciilifeform: 'must be logged in'
mircea_popescu: let's rehost
mod6: ah yeah, i do have a rawtx on sitting here -- just needs testing. also, still have some makefile changes that are needing some testing/review. and further, want to put in some requested changes to import/dump priv key.
mod6: plenty-o-thangs

trinque: mod6: sure sure, I admit being hyperbolic
asciilifeform still waiting for slavecoin
trinque: I do owe a few patches at this point. btw, am using sendrawtransaction with deedbot, works so far.
mod6: sweet :]
mircea_popescu: trinque you won't be able to fix trb into sanity without new classes.
mircea_popescu: both theory and experience show this, sadly.
mod6: and please do send 'em my way when you have time
mircea_popescu: now, that they should be used sparsely is certainly true.
mod6: i know you're pretty swamped -- when you're comfortable with deedbots changes, etc. you know.
asciilifeform: sooner turn pig into a professor of mathematics, than cpp trb into sanity.
trinque: if they demolish old, muddy concepts that's far better than subclassing the mud
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform nevermind the actual implementation. the design/concept however you call it.
mircea_popescu: when we're discussiong classes we're not automatically discussing an impl. it's a data model.
asciilifeform: i understood trinque to be referring to classes in literal cpp sense
mircea_popescu: i did not.
asciilifeform: ( based on the log link )
jhvh1: Gracias Sr. mircea_popescu!

mod6: ohmahgerd, it's alive
mircea_popescu: don't be doing that, not doing it is in the spec!
trinque: mod6: I did lose a transaction in a node's mempool the other day using it. was clearly there, sitting, going nowhere.
trinque: fed to another node, went fine
trinque: I dunno who to blame for that yet
mod6: ah.
mircea_popescu: trinque one working model : all the nodes node 1 was connected to decided "it is spam", because they can do this now, so they didn't forward it but also didn't tell node 1. same did not hold for node 2.
mircea_popescu: typical sybilling, happens and has happened tons, which is why it's important to talk to many nodes for payment safety.
mircea_popescu: and EVEN IF maintaining a large (and, obviously, expensive) network of nodes etc, you can still run into surprises, as the bitbet issue very well illustrates.
trinque: mhm. node 1 sits on a domestic line; 2, commercial. I could see it
mircea_popescu: you'll end up with node lists, fingerprinting, mothership identification, the whole shebang.
mircea_popescu: if you keep money and man-hours into this, you'll eventually reach that vaunted summit.
mircea_popescu: you know, like the ahrefs guy.
mod6: please do keep reporting such irregularities though.
mircea_popescu: (amusingly, this node-sybil-pie entirely exists BECAUSE IT CAN exist. think in GT terms : at t1 it doesn't exist. at t2, player 1 figures out it could exist, whether it can or not, and takes defensive meansures. at t3, some bug in player1's implementation is exploited (consciously or accidentally) and now... it DOES exist.)
mircea_popescu: human problem of meta is that humans can think outside the box. they end up choking each other with the unintentional by-products of that thinking.
mircea_popescu: now THIS would be some interesting ecology, of the "keep the world safe for your children" kind.
mircea_popescu: mental warming is a thing.

lobbes: Also gotta figure out where auctions would happen. I'd imagine #t wouldn't be keen on the auctions taking place in this channel. Would be a lot of added noise.
mircea_popescu: lobbes yeah, we'll get to this in the coming weeks.
mircea_popescu: tbh, i don't think doing it in #trilema is either unfeasible or a bad idea.
mircea_popescu: the forum happens in the marketplace for a reason.
lobbes: That is a point. I can always tweak the announces to be less frequent as people see fit anyways
mircea_popescu: exactly. which is why that's that way hehee
shinohai: I can't remember what I did with it lobbes .... but there was a plugin that let you announce a msg only to folks subscribed to it.
trinque: commerce happening here wont annoy me!
shinohai: Me neither tbh
mircea_popescu: shinohai you might be using different bot bases.
mircea_popescu: but anyway, yes, all sorts of options available. can readily just use pastebin if it gets bad

mircea_popescu: basically the excel-powered secret agent strategy has become "try to disrupt bitcoin by creating fud on social media". which works to... disrupt usage by the usg's own muppets, the redditards, wikitards and assoerted other dust mongers ? which is somehow bad for bitcoin, or even noticeable or something ?
mircea_popescu: hey USG - take your useless sheep and drown them all for what anyone cares. seriously now.
mircea_popescu: usgtronic headcount is not worth money.
asciilifeform: gotta wonder how it was pictured to work -- 'if all the pennies in the sofas added up and made britney and coke, why not to make our shitcoin worth sumthing' ?
mircea_popescu: more like "this bitcoin is like britney, entirely built out of pennies and walmart e-cards"
mircea_popescu: hurr durr.
mircea_popescu: but anyway, apparently taking a few heads here and there creates exactly no conception of own vulnerability in the rest of the heads.
