BingoBoingo: Prognostication found in the wild: http://www.lessonoflives.com/if-these-tweets-are-legit-the-dnc-is-on-its-last-leg/
BingoBoingo: Naturally this prognostication ignores the pansuit purging of their pretense at cultural capital with: "Firing up at the end of this month is a maybe. Firing up before the end of 2017 is looking incredibly Likely.
BingoBoingo: "Star Trek" icon George Takei has been accused of sexual assault by a former model and actor stemming from an incident that allegedly occurred in 1981. Scott R. Brunton alleged that when he was 23 years old, Takei took advantage of him after the two had returned from a night out together. Brunton explained that he has been hesitant to come forward about the alleged incident for years, because he felt no one would believe him."
BingoBoingo: Apparently now in addition to "allies" homosexual men have become problematic for pantsuit
trinque has only hearsay knowledge of the subj, but thought old fags going for young dudes was the rule.
BingoBoingo: Kinda the point, pantsuit loses whole demographic
ag3nt_zer0: ahoy
ag3nt_zer0: i have a question I am a bit terrified to ask
ag3nt_zer0: it feels like a no-brainer but ahhh... if I use pete_dushenski's high entropy wallet method, I only need the private key generated by the words right? I dont need to keep the words... seems obviously dumb when I write it but the redditards are throwing me off here
ag3nt_zer0: hope i dont find out im the tard here
ag3nt_zer0: i think the confusion for me stems from hearing two different descriptions of brain wallets - one described as a way to, if i recall correctly, convert a privkey to a string of words to then be memorized and carried in brain over international borders or what not... and the other encounter I have with this concept is pete's method of generating a high entropy keypair and I am pretty sure I am answering my own question here but wou
ag3nt_zer0: ce
ag3nt_zer0: to be clear i was re-reading pete's article and followed the reddit link to the guy who lost the 4BTC and it was this comment that got me all wound up: "The passphrase has to be random (and necessarily, difficult to memorize). There is no way around this, period. If the prospect of memorizing 12 random words is daunting to you (and it should be - if you forget it, your money is gone), then don't use a brain wallet."
ag3nt_zer0: but it looks is this guy is speaking of not being able to access the privkey because said example forgot the words reveal that key, and neither did the person write down the privkey?
ag3nt_zer0: *the words that reveal ^^^

ag3nt_zer0: i have the keypair... is that enough?
ag3nt_zer0: asciilifeform ^
asciilifeform: what means 'have' here ?
ag3nt_zer0: i followed petes method except for the printing. i instead hand wrote the pub and priv... and i possess those
ag3nt_zer0: i have those
ag3nt_zer0: i through out the words though
ag3nt_zer0: threw
ag3nt_zer0: :/
asciilifeform: ag3nt_zer0: are you familiar with mnemonism ?
ag3nt_zer0: no
asciilifeform: type of performance art , circus 'magic'
ag3nt_zer0: ok yes
ag3nt_zer0: memorizes lengthy things
asciilifeform: reciting 1e6 digits of pi etc
ag3nt_zer0: ok
asciilifeform: ever try it ?
ag3nt_zer0: yes
ag3nt_zer0: i udsed petes method
ag3nt_zer0: used
asciilifeform: then you know what the words were for.
ag3nt_zer0: with the dictionary and the dice and 13 words and all that
asciilifeform: so what's the q then
ag3nt_zer0: hmmm
ag3nt_zer0: i assumed until today that words were utilized to create a keypair
ag3nt_zer0: so once i had the keypair i assumed the words unecessary
ag3nt_zer0: but they are called a "passphrase" here and there
ag3nt_zer0: so im not sure
asciilifeform: they're a ( not imho particularly great, but we digress ) mnemonic device, is all.
ag3nt_zer0: so asciilifeform, if I have stored safely the private key, do i need the words to unlock that or something? or was it ok to discard the words?
asciilifeform: think, if you have the key per se, you can always convert it to the 'words' form again later.
asciilifeform: just as you can write number 10 as 0xa in base 16 etc
asciilifeform: ag3nt_zer0: btw when you discuss an article, it is good form to link to it
asciilifeform: folx should not have to dig to find it
ag3nt_zer0: asciilifeform: yes understood... and thanks for your time here!

trinque: fact. today's a bot haxing day anyway. other item in the queue is subcriptions
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes maybe it just needs a manager to restart it periodically if its down :D
trinque: i.e. shinohai registers his irc bouncer service as a subscription on deedbot, folks can subscribe and automatically pay him per interval
mircea_popescu: trinque next you can introduce underdraw fees, be 100% like a cc comp!
trinque: crash looping, also natural!

pete_dushenski: aite
asciilifeform: prolly the 1 item that might interest people is the full set of bolix docs

pete_dushenski: why do you always guess what other ppl will be interested in ? i really do think you'd be surprised if you stopped with the commentary and just listed everything
asciilifeform: because wtf, it isn't worth ~my~ time to catalogue every old toaster in the kitchen, and everypiece of dead tree rubbish that one could get for fiddycents from 'bookfinder' etc
asciilifeform: uniques/rarities strictly.
asciilifeform: at any rate, can't say that it's a very urgent thing -- prolly >1yr to launch day, for asciilifeform
pete_dushenski: ya not saying don't prioritise, just hard to imagine that you have only bolix and encyclopediae that qualify as "uniques/rarities". you're like a walking library and nihil fit ex nihilo. in my mind your library looks like http://images.mentalfloss.com/blogs/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/6551303327_bb9ac1f5d6_z-565x376.jpg

phf: pete_dushenski: that's a common misconception, i suspect asciilifeform's library consists of like 200-300 books, that are heavily annotated, because other books, while really nice to have, is a pain in the ass to manage, so you just cull to the current essentials and somehow source whatever's missing later.
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: orig link is quite nonsensical tho : ru is ~exporter~ not importer of fissiles
asciilifeform: phf: i annotate in my head
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: RU is a wholeseller.
asciilifeform: and it's considerably larger but also low snr
asciilifeform: the 300 figure is closer to what i aim for in the launch capsule.

trinque: BingoBoingo: got a link to that blade you were talking about?
BingoBoingo: trinque: Blade would be built around BIOSTAR A68N-5545 shoved into "Build a Blade" enclosure linked earler. Some assembly required, but not experimental hardware at the ranch.
BingoBoingo: *alf ranch
trinque: might blade, might rack 1u, depending on what's on offer
trinque will review logs to not duplicate details
trinque: mmm don't see it
BingoBoingo: trinque: Racking 1u will give more freedom to spec box, get ECC RAM
BingoBoingo: Could also do humble blade around PC Engines APU board. Idea is minimal viable machine for lord of aspiring lordling to make home while possessing root login.
trinque: what of shipping own box in?
BingoBoingo: That is doable. Still gotta rent space, heat handling, and access to net

asciilifeform: wb
spyked: hi! sorry for the radio silence. I've been working myself out of various irl swamps lately (still in progress). following in read-only mode though.
spyked missed quite a lot while in read-only mode. glad to hear you enjoyed bucharest, asciilifeform. unexpected also. fortunately you didn't see it on weekdays.
asciilifeform: i did see it on weekday lol
asciilifeform: enjoyed timis far moar ftr.
asciilifeform: ( where, e.g., sidewalks can be walked on, rather than used as ad hoc orc parking lot )
spyked: I was firmly convinced your verdict would be "~shithole" (at least mircea_popescu's was some years ago).
asciilifeform: bucharest ?
spyked: yes
asciilifeform: it's still a notch or two ahead of, e.g., chicago
asciilifeform: and for that matter most of usa
asciilifeform: at least written in terms of 'bang per buck'
asciilifeform: and the parts of usa that it ~isn't~ two notches ahead of, asciilifeform will never live in
asciilifeform: so it's still a winner.
spyked: in other news, I've been using most of my spare cycles lisping in ada. should be able to wrap up a blog post sharing a very minimal prototype (sane implem. of repl doing nothing but basic ops) in a few weeks. what I've got now adheres to most of ffa constraints. the current version isn't very clean, but getting there...
asciilifeform: spyked: nifty
asciilifeform: tinyscheme-like item as discussed here ?
spyked: yes. hopefully more than that in the long term (item to be manually translated to e.g. fpga implementation)
asciilifeform: sounds like fun

asciilifeform: spyked: my original notion was, sane ecosystem is direly short of a simple scripting lang
asciilifeform: ( i'd quite like to perma-anathemize python,perl,all the multi-GB-pots-of-liquishit )
asciilifeform: and get something in which one might write things like http://www.loper-os.org/?p=1762
asciilifeform: but that ~itself~ weighs very little
asciilifeform: and is 'correct-by-obviousness'
spyked: I'm also keeping the idea of potentially embedding in other ada projects (e.g. adacoin?) in mind. but so far wrestling the ffa aspects were enough of a challenge. oh, and there's no gc yet, the thing leaks memory like hell. but that's not its biggest problem.
spyked: at least once it goes out of memory it will scream, unlike tinyscheme buffer overflows.
asciilifeform: i'm not fully convinced that a scripting lang ~needs~ a gc
asciilifeform: ( if your script runs for long enough that it needs gc -- maybe it oughta instead be an actual proggy ? )
spyked: ^ and if it does, should be easy to plug it in.
asciilifeform: on sane iron, gc really oughta be part of the iron. but that's whole other thread.
asciilifeform: spyked: consider posting your draft ( as asciilifeform posts his drafts occasionally )
asciilifeform: i'd much like to try it
spyked: right now the thing does a whole lot of consing (e.g. even when parsing), to avoid using ada run-time. but yeah, not posted, I'm talking about ~non-existing item.
asciilifeform: spyked: ideally you tell it on commandlinearg how much memory the script shot gets. and if it tries to cons 1 time too many, that's a eggog
asciilifeform: ( this is how 'p' works, as you will see in near future )
asciilifeform: spyked: it's ok to post it 1 routine at a time ( as i do with ffa )
spyked: asciilifeform, I considered doing that, but it's big enough (spread across 3-4 compilation units) that I'll need to wrap in blog post and do some preliminary documentation work
asciilifeform: fair'nuff
spyked: single routine is probably boring (I expect asciilifeform knows better than me how S-expr parsing works)
spyked: though there's devil hiding in those details
asciilifeform: parsing sanely (i.e. with meaningful eggog-recoveries) is tricky business
spyked: e.g. ada I/O is not especially suited for this task, because it reads either characters or full lines; and reading characters doesn't eat newlines, so gotta rely on shell buffering for sane interaction.
asciilifeform: your proggy should never try to eat or shit more than 1 char at a shot
asciilifeform: i.e. it should be compatible with 'no os' ( bare iron ) microcontroller and such
asciilifeform: ideally.
asciilifeform: a newline is just another octet.
spyked: on Get(Char), ada (at least gnat) seems to consume everything but linefeeds (even control characters such as EOT)
asciilifeform: the less use is made of ada standard libs, the moar likely the thing is to survive transition to whatever ada-with-maximal-dross-jettisonned that we eventually end up with.
spyked will keep this in mind
asciilifeform: spyked: i'ma post 'p' i/o routines, 1s
asciilifeform: from current draft :
asciilifeform: os.ads : http://wotpaste.cascadianhacker.com/pastes/SRKeb/?raw=true
asciilifeform: os.adb : http://wotpaste.cascadianhacker.com/pastes/C7D2r/?raw=true
asciilifeform: and yes we import the c char routines. but these can be replaced on bare iron with reads/writes of uart, trivially. or anything else we want.
spyked: asciilifeform, ty! I will study and put to use.
asciilifeform: the posted unit is the entirety of the machine-dependent part of 'p'.
asciilifeform: and for that matter of the ada std lib - using part ( once the debuggery put_line's in ffa are done away with )
spyked figures out he has a lot of work to do. but this -- after current code receives proper drilling from other interested people.
asciilifeform: meanwhile, in other volkischer beobachter lulz, https://archive.is/NS8Mr >> 'Mr. Williams had written on his company blog about the Shadow Brokers...
