joecool: correct, for whatever reason this smartcard would not allow me to import my other subkeys
joecool: so i have two encryption subkeys on my uid
mircea_popescu: i c. will want to hear what trinque says on this.
joecool: in gribble's case i have the choice between eauth/everify (requires that I decrypt) and auth/verify (requires signing)
mircea_popescu: aha

trinque: http://btcbase.org/log/2017-12-23#1757276 << kinda iffy on how to handle this. if I understand, you've got one subkey with you; the default deedbot's gpg wants to use is not with you.☝︎
a111: Logged on 2017-12-23 00:02 joecool: correct, for whatever reason this smartcard would not allow me to import my other subkeys
trinque: in the past I have only ever made *any* changes to the deedbot keychain if the person can prove control of both keys, old and new.
trinque: my preference is to not end up with some sort of complex "policy" around how deedbot should interact with gpg.

shinohai: true
trinque: I've helped people work around the gpg idiocy in the past (expiration dates) because.. gpg idiocy.
BigTexasBingo: It also matters what key signed the parachute
shinohai: no need for bickering VIII: The Kochaclypse
shinohai: *bickening
trinque: just pointing out that I might be corrupting the youfs by not taking a firmer line on "put a sane single key into deedbot and always have it, or proceed by the *only* mechanism to change key, or die"
trinque: it's a rot that flows from relying on gpg, and I've thus far considered that tightening around asciilifeform's P is the appropriate time for it.
BigTexasBingo: From gpg from gribble auth, from a whole lot of accumulated trash
BigTexasBingo: Brb, done hacer pupu
trinque: anyhow, there's no signing auth mechanism, and I don't want to feature creep the thing. I will however change a key for anybody that demonstrates control of both.
shinohai: feature creep kill gribble so yeah
trinque: the relationship to the wallet is also important to consider. wallet and deedbot do not share state, beyond deedbot initially communicating a (key, nick) pair to wallet. at that time, of course, the wallet is empty.
trinque: "update" is always way more dangerous than "insert" eh?
shinohai: to me beauty of your lispbot framework, its easier to keep things contained. i admit has been a bit daunting so far attempting to port all this crap from python.

asciilifeform: i have not yet attempted a musltronic one.

trinque: does appear that when using the gentoo musltronic patches, the step from 6 -> 5 -> 4 gcc is necessary.
trinque: maybe what ends up happening is that I produce a "stage 3" that's already had this nonsense done to it, though obviously there's value in preserving the lineage (in form of a build script) from gentoo to cuntoo.
trinque: well. that keybinding is clearly too close to another.
trinque: anyhow weevlos, and all you miserable, worthless 4chan fucks. the fact of the matter is there's less than one part per million worthwhile human being on this wretched planet, and while I spent my evening drinking pinot noir and chatting with a worthwhile lass that bought me Feynman's Lectures on Physics for xmas, you spent it pulling your dick on social media. when the world turns over, you will have much

mircea_popescu: http://btcbase.org/log/2017-12-23#1757314 << the principal fucking problem with the rank nonsense we're using is that idiocy of "subkey". consider mine : if you encrypt to 2FB7B452 which ~is~ my key, gpg will nevertheless encrypt to 16B8E32E. because gpg will use the master as sign-only and create a "decryption" key "automatically".☝︎
a111: Logged on 2017-12-23 01:55 trinque: in the past I have only ever made *any* changes to the deedbot keychain if the person can prove control of both keys, old and new.
mircea_popescu: then to add insult to injury "picks the right one" also "automatically" at "any time"
mircea_popescu: so in practical nonsense as grandfathered in, we posited already an equivalency so that if 1. something signed by 2FB7B452 and 2. somethinf decrypted by 16B8E32E then therefore 1 = 2 in terms of cryptoproof strength.\
mircea_popescu: gracias shinohai
mircea_popescu: so in re http://btcbase.org/log/2017-12-23#1757315 which is on the face very sane, we are in fact in the situation of an undesirably very complex policy already. yet another examplke of what tmsr-rsa is intended to fix.☝︎

As you might guess the gas station primarily sells gas to casino goers. The tribe imposes a tax on the gas that pays for the r
mircea_popescu: oad. Well Kansas decided it was going to impose its own tax on fuel distributors, that they were free to pass on to their customers. The tribe argues that the tax should not apply to it because federal indian law preempts state law and because it impinges on the tribe's sovereign immunity. My from the gut prediction is that the Court will REVERSE, just because native Americans really have bad luck at the Court. They have some

asciilifeform: ^^ mod6, ben_vulpes , trinque , mircea_popescu , et al ^^
asciilifeform: and yes typo, FIRST not 'fist'
asciilifeform: btw kudos to jurov , his http://therealbitcoin.org/mailman/post/btc-dev widget worked on first trigger pull !!
asciilifeform: ( iirc this was my 1st time using it )
asciilifeform: analysis so far : ^^item^^ results , at last , in situation where any 2 trb nodes, and 1 is 'ahead' of the other, the 'trailing' node is guaranteed to be fed.
asciilifeform: *where any 2 trb nodes connect, and...
asciilifeform: theoretically (!) this should make 'wires' (see last feb. log) actually work-as-intended. ( asciilifeform not yet tried. )
asciilifeform: this is testable empirically; like-so: any N trb nodes built with 'aggression' patch above, and linked via 'wires', should never fall out of height-sync with one another by more than a coupla blox. at any point.
asciilifeform: whoever has the resources to test this : plox to write in.
asciilifeform: fwiw 'aggression' is live on (still syncing...) zoolag, as of today.
asciilifeform: ( funnily enough it is now virtually impossible to connect to, on account of actually getting fed a block ~every time it touches anybody ... )
asciilifeform: it did take a while to reach this state, given as 'wires' are no longer in use. had to actually connect to a working and nonblackholed trb.
asciilifeform: hence the observation in the readme.txt.

mircea_popescu: correct design would have prioritized block delivery over txn delivery, at the delivery point
mircea_popescu: but...
mircea_popescu: "i can not send this node any txn for as long as it still asks me for blocks"
asciilifeform: more exactly, for so long as it is verifying a block, it is dead-in-the-water
asciilifeform: and in order for this not to be the case, you need a sane db
asciilifeform: ( that , e.g., barrierizes reads correctly, rather than blocking completely )
mircea_popescu: myeah
mircea_popescu: ironically bdb would have worked for this if correctly implemented.
mircea_popescu: but the problem with windows-moder-computerpropellerhead is that he expects items to work correcty in whichever braindamaged manner he expects to use them
mircea_popescu: very much a case of "driver learned to drive on automatic, thinks gearbox fails to work correctly"
asciilifeform: well, when verification took 3s instead of 3min, problem was not visible to the idjit's naked eye
mircea_popescu: the naked eye being not a conceptual eye.
asciilifeform: was 'too cheap to meter' (tm)(r)
mircea_popescu needs frequent breaks for watching naked girlie put away the veuve cliquots and whatnots.

mircea_popescu: for as long as you have other trbs up to speed to support you. but still, useful mod.
asciilifeform: so far seems to be.
mircea_popescu again sees trinque ~9 blocks behind
trinque: mircea_popescu: lookin on the website? if so that's a timestamp indicating when the page itself was last regenerated.
trinque: asciilifeform: sounds like a neato patch
trinque: at any rate I do look to be consistently at least a couple blocks behind. gonna now go back to default maxver and let it run.
