mircea_popescu: lel
mircea_popescu: note that it's not me saying that ; for that matter i dun much link the vandalized mircea_popescu wikipedia page or any other such nonsense.
asciilifeform: earlier this (?) yr, possibly it was from prod from mircea_popescu , asciilifeform removed a buncha folx from blogroll pg ... for being dead
asciilifeform: ( oddly enuff some of the dead people, have working www, and the live people -- not , go figure )
mircea_popescu: i did a bunch of that too, discovered that out of 10k websites, ~0 remain
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i dun think it was vandalized yet when naggum was alive and pointing to it
asciilifeform: or was it
mircea_popescu: i have nfi.
mircea_popescu: minor lulz at the perishable nature of the hyper-tard-transfer-protocol ended up a major topic. i just snickered en passant!
asciilifeform: me neither. archaeology is a science of the sad and destroyed.
mircea_popescu: wasn't he working on exactly this not happening by his own account ?
asciilifeform: and yes naggum is buried in cement partly on account of the shattering of bridge that he himself had a hand in building
mircea_popescu: aha.
asciilifeform: this was more or less always part of the tragedy of the d00d
asciilifeform: upstack : iirc nelson wanted a perma-storage-net . in 1970 . to this day we dun have it, because -- apparently -- too expensive ? or how else to explain that folx still whine from having to store 1(decimal-)MB per 10min
mircea_popescu: anyway, the principal problem is that he's not very good at arguing ; neither from a helping the preopinent nor from a produce useful record perspective. these are the two principal goals of conversation, i can scarcely imagine a third.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform the fundamental problem is that only the elite have any use for history ; the plebs generally want a "start over tomorrow" world.
asciilifeform: they sure do.

mircea_popescu: indeed the zek paradise is very much that "loose shoes and warm place to shit in" historical african's paradise : if they could pick up a new woman every night and she'd be gone after cooking lunch every day ; if they had to drive to a new place to start work every monday ; if there was always a new beer in the cafeteria and a new show on tv with a new identical blondy lead... scl
asciilifeform: not convinced of this. zek is also very much creature of habit
asciilifeform: the new beer has to be substantially old.
mircea_popescu: yes, but structural repetition with "novel" form.
mircea_popescu: same blondy, new blondy.
trinque: the "born again in cheesus christ" thing points right to it
asciilifeform: oldwine in newbottle aha
mircea_popescu: hence all the "revolution" bs. o really, revolution in programming ?
asciilifeform: trinque: afaik that's generally a 1shot thing, neh
mircea_popescu: nah, can do it every other weekend
trinque: grants magical perpetual reborning
mircea_popescu: many churchlets.
asciilifeform: but do they ?
trinque: that's what the nightly sorries are about
mircea_popescu: i dunno. maybe. they do host "revivals" as a rthing
asciilifeform: i thought that was an empty token tho
mircea_popescu: aaanyways, in other lulz, poor shop here in poor quarter, "se reparan zapatos ; clinica de ropa ; jesu christo vive."
asciilifeform: lol clinica de ropa
mircea_popescu: term of art here
asciilifeform: sooo it's true, the fungus is eating ye olde catholistans ?
mircea_popescu: the catholocism-in-orclang IS the fungus to begin with.
asciilifeform: asciilifeform lives in a 'spanish' part of town , and was quite surprised to learn that most of the folx on his street go yes to church but no not to catholic church
asciilifeform: re orclang , that's when it fell down neh.
asciilifeform: '70s
mircea_popescu: just about.
mircea_popescu: you mean 1270s ?
asciilifeform: vatican2
asciilifeform: 1970s
mircea_popescu: sometime between the two
shinohai: Most of the dumb Indian hispanics from Central America around here go to evangelical churches, Mexis the majority Catholic here.
mircea_popescu: anyway, more generally, the idea that "the people" are some sort of thing, and to be catered to, IS the fungus.
asciilifeform still not certain that anybody actually believes in 'thepeople' , rather than pretending to
asciilifeform: it's a mirage , like the other one touched on today, the concrete-thefuture
mircea_popescu: distinction without a difference ; do children believe in nightmares or merely pretend to, or merely the misfunctioning of their undeveloped brain conflates two things ?
asciilifeform: nfi
mircea_popescu: nor will we find out , nor will it matter.
asciilifeform: right after we find out how many, after all, angels fit on the pin.
ben_vulpes: unrelated to anything, i recently had the most amusing experience with a "bitcoin cash" wallet where it *insisted* on creating a zero-satoshi output.
shinohai: lol ben_vulpes which wallet was it?
ben_vulpes: "electron cash"
ben_vulpes: shoulda been the simplest possible transaction in the world, one output summing to the value of all wallet inputs less explicityly set miner fee.
ben_vulpes: it's what, 2018, and the people pushing altcoins are still struggling with arithmetic.
mircea_popescu: hard to fix anything by copy-pasting ancient windows ware.
ben_vulpes: mircea_popescu: do you remember the article where you said something like "or the entrepreneurs will win and then there will be a decade of hedge funds making a killing on the opaque altcorn market before we kill them all slowly"?
mircea_popescu: yes. linked recently, http://trilema.com/2013/bitcoin-prices-bitcoin-inflexibility/#selection-117.0-117.160
ben_vulpes: tyyyyy
mircea_popescu: my pleasure.
mircea_popescu: this "emacs / xemacs reconciliation" is a tiresome painful fucking read. why the fuck would anyone consider merging xt in emacs ?! what is wrong with these people.
asciilifeform: xt?
mircea_popescu: i gather it to be the x toolkit thingee ?
mircea_popescu: like qt pre qt, i guess.
asciilifeform tried to use it eons ago, barfed mightily
asciilifeform: i think i have the book still, propping up some piece of furniture
mircea_popescu: basically, a principled "emacs does not want or need window-decorations gtfo" out of rms would have been a lot better than his inept dithering
mircea_popescu: what does he imagine that he gains brownie points with someone somewhere for "cooperate" ? ffs.
asciilifeform: xemacs has 0 to do with the emacs e.g. asciilifeform today runs under x11.
asciilifeform: 0.
asciilifeform: it's a bitcoincash of trad emacs.
asciilifeform: i thought there was a thread re subj.
mircea_popescu: the original discussion cca 1993 was centered around this\
asciilifeform: buncha derps in 1990s ran off to mikehearn emacs, back in the day.
asciilifeform: the trad emacs worxfine under x11 , since asciilifeform was a student, and prolly before
asciilifeform: i even have colour in it ( purely for personal enjoyment , repainted to resemble ye olde borland turbo )
mircea_popescu: anyway, very much systemd-"debate"-in-a-can
asciilifeform: xemacs was actually the first systemdism i ever ran into head on
asciilifeform: i asked 'what is this, why there are 2 emacses on this box'
asciilifeform: brother said sumthinglike 'here's the emacs and here's the taiwan emacs'

mircea_popescu: my borland was thicker font
asciilifeform: noshit
asciilifeform: mine too, given that it lived in 80x25 and used the spiffy nonscalable vga font
mircea_popescu: in fact, i'm generally unhappy with the thin fonts everywhere. terms and borland back in the day had touched greatness wrt glyph thickness
asciilifeform: yes!!
asciilifeform: i fiddled with this nonsense for ages and gave up.
asciilifeform: living without good font even nao.
mircea_popescu: i generally set up everything to more or less correct proportions, at terrible cost
mircea_popescu: there's a screencap of my yahoo messenger config in this vein floating about somewhere even
asciilifeform: i could prolly spend rest of life fighting with the font config and still not get anything as comfortable as dos font.

mircea_popescu: "oh but mp, before you reinvent the wheel you should read the other things other people did before" "motherfucking hell what if I CAN NOT READ THESE PEOPLE!"
asciilifeform: these people have about as much to do with the actual history of Things People Did Before (tm) as the bird shit on the hood of my car has with the engine.
mircea_popescu: really, you're striking david gillespie ?
asciilifeform: do i know who that is ?
mircea_popescu: lisp guy.
asciilifeform looks in ancient notes...
mircea_popescu: cl.el etc
asciilifeform: loox like he write some emacsola
asciilifeform: aha
asciilifeform: not exactly archimedes.
asciilifeform: if not him -- next d00d would've.
asciilifeform: iirc jwz also wrote sumthing or other.
asciilifeform: and esr. etc
mircea_popescu: so sgml is a flaming pile of shit, oda is a waste of paper and i even read french, what exactly are these wheels one's supposed to not reinvent ?
asciilifeform: sexpr... 1958
asciilifeform: pretty much last time anyffingrelevant happened.
mircea_popescu: isn't this definitionally what naggum proposes one not do ?
mircea_popescu: "go back to basics and start over" ?
asciilifeform: sure is. observe where it got him.
asciilifeform: d00d thought he lived in something like a working civilization, worth preserving, etc
asciilifeform: turns out!
mircea_popescu: so tell me how is pstp going to work without a gns to reference container content names ?
asciilifeform: this is already bridge too far
mircea_popescu: ok, tell me how an article on trilema'd look.
asciilifeform: i expect very similar to how already loox.
mircea_popescu: ie, html ?
asciilifeform: i thought q was re external appearance to naked eye.
mircea_popescu: i'm not asking how it'd be rendered, it god damn ed be rendered the same. im asking...
asciilifeform: aa
asciilifeform: answering this q would require having solved several fundamental problems that asciilifeform has not solved yet.
asciilifeform: i'd read mircea_popescu's take on it. or for that matter trinque's, iirc he had one buried in a desk drawer
mircea_popescu: lmao so after stringing along "oh, we have spent so much, we hope to still work together, tell us how" for a year, gabriel is like "Unfortunately, GNU Emacs 19 is not constructed following modern programming practice - even though there are procedural interfaces to some functionality groups, one could not say that abstraction boundaries are maintained. The mish-mash of data structures is just too clumsy and incoherent to make
mircea_popescu: life for the maintainer easy. This is proven by the fact that Arceneaux was unable to add the extensions we needed to an early version of GNU Emacs 19 given somewhat over a year's time to do it and by the fact that it has taken you and Blandy so long to get GNU Emacs 19 out.
mircea_popescu: We believe that the merge in the other direction is the proper way to do things, and this is the course we shall pursue. There are things that you have done to GNU Emacs 19 that are good, and we believe that the best way to proceed is to clean them up and put them in Lucid Emacs 19. Maintainability is important to us because even though GNU Emacs 19 has no warranty, we must support a warranty on our commercial product which i
mircea_popescu: ncludes Lemacs as a component.
mircea_popescu: I think this is not a good outcome for the Emacs user community, and I hate to have to criticize the implementation of GNU Emacs 19, but at some point clean code and good structure counts more than a false sense of parsimony, and that point has been reached."
mircea_popescu: well thank you bitch, you ~could~ have said this a year ago and saved everyone the hassle. o wait, cuz needed to appear all humble and shit for a year to poach users / devs i see i see.
asciilifeform: it gets worse. much worse.
mircea_popescu: it's like watching middle class single parent 12 yos at work, mendacious manipulative little shits that imagine their nonsense is entirely opaque to anyone and everyone.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform in ~principle~ a container could tell you what class of procedure it wants to be eaten by ; and gns could tell you which v-trees implement it.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu nailed this one in an old article which presently escapes me. a buncha shoemakers are missing apprentices , whole buncha streets are missing their sweepers, while the jwzs birdshit on software
mircea_popescu: well this is richard gabriel. which...
mircea_popescu: (original lucid guy, and other things)
asciilifeform: aha, he is interesting case
asciilifeform: had some sort of lisp-related nervous break
asciilifeform: decided he is 'poet' after that.
asciilifeform actually obtained and tried to read d00d's b00ks...

asciilifeform: him aha
asciilifeform: 100% imho writeoff. went mad.
mircea_popescu: lotta that going around.
mircea_popescu: anyway, so : a container could tell you it's a document, and it contains a text, a song and a picture. should that container end up on a list of things you're interested in, your client could then look up what to do with documents, and how to parse texts, songs and images.
mircea_popescu: then it could tell you "well, here's that thing you wanted in a browser, because that's where it says it goes, and we couldn't process the song part because nobody you trust signed an implementation of anything on the list of song things, but the text is there as per so-and-so-textizer signed by x y and z"
asciilifeform: this is roughly what the xml people tried to do
mircea_popescu: and everyone else.
asciilifeform: aha
asciilifeform: most recently bastardized by the urbit folx
asciilifeform: but it comes back, more or less continuously, like daedal's wings
mircea_popescu: "and the image is in the list of things you don't want so we omitted that also"
mircea_popescu: and indeed, management of the implicit semantics in all this will be the end of the world.
trinque worked under a semantic-web-head for about 4-5yrs, built several incarnations of this kind of meta-browser monstrosity
trinque: dunno it ends up being any more complicated than existing DHTs but for the urge to make a giant, complex, systemdtron with myriad ways of describing the same things.
asciilifeform: trinque: put it in writing pleeeez?
trinque: not nearly ready
asciilifeform: really gotta write these things
asciilifeform: or they get lost
trinque: plenty of bad implementations already written
asciilifeform: not proggy !
asciilifeform: the war story
mircea_popescu: trinque the disaster i perceive is this : that a) the worst world is to have a lot of ad-hoc implementation of sexpr-datastructs but b) the cheapest way is a and c) the complete construction is unachievable.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform noodling phase yet, dun worry, nothing in my hand will get lost.
mircea_popescu: let's put this in different terms : the happiest life is, empty planet, where man can go picking berries / quals/womenz as he feels inclined. everything fits well and all is good. the necessary correlate is that the petri dish slowly fills, at which point incompatibles will result in perpetual war and strife. all is not so good.
mircea_popescu: the evident macro-solution would be to construct a filling of the petri dish out of non-overlapping parts, but a) this will bother everyone if only a little bit, by cramping their style and b) thje development and maintenance cost for this is the textbook example of http://trilema.com/2016/honor-societies-vs-respect-societies-or-how-the-disaster-of-commons-sunk-the-western-world/
mircea_popescu: ie, the onme thing everyone wants to defect.
asciilifeform: errybody wants 'the ecstasy but not the laundry', newsat11
mircea_popescu: systems where this applies are definitionally broken.
asciilifeform: i dun think i've been to the planet where they keep the nonbroken ones yet
mircea_popescu: let's look at it again.
mircea_popescu: so gns is basically just a lengthy registrar of assignments, a=b sorta thing, signed by keys.
mircea_popescu: there's no obligation on anyone to maintain any particular portion of it, or to communicate it to anyone -- can be run locally just as well (in practice, equiv rto "only trust my signature").
mircea_popescu: this much can be implemented without bothering anyone. right ?
trinque nods
asciilifeform: already implemented as buncha specialcases, neh ( e.g. v )
mircea_popescu: or deedbot. okay. moving on.
mircea_popescu: v is basically just a lengthy pile of code trees, made out of patches also signed by keys ; in practice its coinvolved with the v-application, which can press etc, but let's here distinguish.
mircea_popescu: as for the gns above, no obligation.
mircea_popescu: this idem already exists, and is not getting in anyone's way.
mircea_popescu: now let's look at how things work. mircea_popescu decides one day he wants to find out about sgml, and therefore instructs his client.
asciilifeform brb
mircea_popescu: 2. the client queries whichever gns it is configured to, and inquires as to contacting machines which hold data related to this item. it receives a list of them, on the basis of what signatures mircea_popescu told it to trust signed.
mircea_popescu: it then proceeds to, for every item on that list,
mircea_popescu: 3. open link to machine, explain what it is it wants, get an answer in the form of "here's a list of document containers, which do you want". it explains which it wants (such as "all" or w/e) and it gets a container containing them. maybe it's gzipped or whatever.
mircea_popescu: 4. in all cases, a container consists of a tag and binary data ; the tag section of the gns tells it what v trees are acceptable applications upon that data.
mircea_popescu: 5. client proceeds to build what it can (if set to, and as per signatures again) and present the pile.
mircea_popescu: in this way, someone who wants to read unicode will accept containers of that type and have in his seals sigs of people who wrote such a tree ; and who wants to see (what now is) .avi or .gif or etc similarily.
mircea_popescu: ie, the whole thing can be built out of parts without getting in anyone's way whatsoever.
mircea_popescu: i don't have to have the people who want to use unicode to agree to anything in particular ahead of time, and if tomorrow they decide to call it fuck-bush instead, they can and nothing gets broken
mircea_popescu: there's no requirement that the gns even be properly global ; it's your job to make it global-locally and that's that.
trinque: this 1) agreeing ahead of time with pantsuit council on what schemas exist or 2) infinitely nested lookup tables for viewers is exactly what killed the prior idiots
mircea_popescu: yeah, but it seems to me neither is involved here ?
trinque: not at all. this works.
mircea_popescu: you can make upon a private lan the agreement that "unicode" is how you call the tga decoder, and lo and behold... you read tga with the unicode displayer now.
mircea_popescu: so in the atomic case, practically overengineered but for the sake of understanding each other : each v tree should simply say it wants to be pressed by a v presser, and the client should inquire wtf that is and get one.
trinque: it also leaves space for *multiple* hypertext document viewers, many as you like.
mircea_popescu: obviously we all do this manually at present, but we really utterly don't want to.
mircea_popescu: trinque many as you can be bothered to sign yes.
mircea_popescu: obviously the fact that a bitcoin txn container will come with "this takes bitcoin" will not result in you recompiling bitcoin for each tx -- you already have it ;
mircea_popescu: but the first time you run into one -- yes, it would.
mircea_popescu: and that "bitcoin" can mean whatever the fuick you choose it should mean.
mircea_popescu: so announcement of a new partch would be author changing his gns entry for X from press-to-q to press-to-k ; if user is disinterested he jkust gets dragged along, otherwise if user requires he sign local copy he stays put.
mircea_popescu: all transparent like and everything.
mircea_popescu: no more need to run javascript (ie, unsecured remote code) ; no more need to "ask people to upgrade" ; no more anything of the idiotic sort. if i want a cuntoo/mp-wp/we it is now i have to ask here, and maybne someone produces one. this could just as well be handled by the machines, it's a machine task.

mircea_popescu: rather than the current "google search" utterly useless bullshit.
mircea_popescu: at least that way i have someone to tell his dentist sucked ; and he might negrate the douche. or vice-versa.

mircea_popescu: asciilifeform the major change from http://btcbase.org/log/2016-11-15#1567932 is obviously the abandoment of the fixed petri dish. it dun have to have a "final word" solution, overalpping local ones are fine.☝︎

diana_coman: in other gnupg-isms: it uses lcm(p-1, q-1) instead of phi itself, supposedly to make decryption faster but essentially through making the decryption exponent smaller; moreover, this is a sort of buildup on the whole pile of stink because it quite relies on p and q NOT being really random (if they really are random, chances are gcd(p-1, q-1) relatively small and therefore phi and lcm not really all that different anyway)
diana_coman: (obv. no comments in the code to know why it uses lcm there, so the supposition above is entirely mine; if anyone sees a different reason for that, let me know)
asciilifeform: diana_coman: are you speaking of the item http://wotpaste.cascadianhacker.com/pastes/aQhMA/?raw=true ?
asciilifeform: ( snippet paste is from the classical 1.4.10 )
asciilifeform: and gotta point out, gcd and lcm not the same, gcd(x,y)*lcm(x,y)=x*y (proof left as exercise)
diana_coman: asciilifeform, at key generation really, classical 1.4.10, snippet here: http://p.bvulpes.com/pastes/GWFnN/?raw=true
diana_coman: asciilifeform, where the fuck did I say gcd and lcm same??
diana_coman: phi = (p-1)*(q-1)

apeloyee: possible reason for http://btcbase.org/log/2018-01-08#1766967 is NIST FIPS 186-4: " The exponent d shall be a positive integer value such that 2^(nlen/2) d < LCM(p–1, q–1)" (http://nvlpubs.nist.gov/nistpubs/FIPS/NIST.FIPS.186-4.pdf#page=62 )☝︎
a111: Logged on 2018-01-08 14:33 diana_coman: in other gnupg-isms: it uses lcm(p-1, q-1) instead of phi itself, supposedly to make decryption faster but essentially through making the decryption exponent smaller; moreover, this is a sort of buildup on the whole pile of stink because it quite relies on p and q NOT being really random (if they really are random, chances are gcd(p-1, q-1) relatively small and therefore phi and lcm not really all that different anyway)
apeloyee: 2^(nlen/2) < d
diana_coman: "where nlen is the appropriate length for the desired security_strength" - where is this wonder in gnupg anyway
diana_coman: apeloyee, I guess that's the how come lcm, because they said so, yes

btcvixen: You asked for females to show you tits. I am female, I showed you tits. Why are my real tits less legitimate than a female with silicon tits?
mircea_popescu: btcvixen well, if you're curious about procedure, l1 invalidated your claim and you're sol. kinda how things work here.
asciilifeform: ben_vulpes has it; 'whisper' was not prompted by a secret dislike of asciilifeform's of people who start with 'b'
mircea_popescu: but procedural approach isn't worth much in the republic anyway.
ben_vulpes: asciilifeform: first people whose names start with 't' and now 'b'
asciilifeform: lolaha
ben_vulpes: clearly a tigot
mircea_popescu: btcvixen no, the substantive issue is that you are not female ; you would like to be, which is fine, but it doesn't do anything.
btcvixen: but i am female
mircea_popescu: do you understand what "female" means ?
asciilifeform: and i'ma rhinoceros!
btcvixen: i would have been fine if ben_vulpes did not blow up my spot.
ben_vulpes: excuse me?
mircea_popescu: the fact thjat you might've gotten away with fraud doesn't actually change the argument.
btcvixen: it's not fraud, i am who i am.
btcvixen: I am female.
mircea_popescu: no.
btcvixen: shinohai, did you purposefully bring me here to mock me?
mircea_popescu: the claim "i am female" is fraudulent ; you are male and will die male. this is something decided at birth and unalterable.
btcvixen: is this the purpose of your whole little thing?
mircea_popescu: if you are confused on the matter, pick a cell and a chromosome count kid, see if the sex chromosome is xx or xy.
btcvixen: why is it when i am hormonally female i function so much more clearly and feel so much more comfortable
btcvixen: there's XX males and XY females
btcvixen: XXY
btcvixen: just because your personal philosophy doesn't accept who i am as a person doesn't invalidate me or my identity.
mircea_popescu: btcvixen no, actually, nobody gives a shit about the obscure "i am genderconfused" demo either. the purpose is for the ~5bn extand females to earn a penny ; the 50k or whatever overfed white boys with too much tiome on their time isn't foremost on anyone's mind.
mircea_popescu: btcvixen my personal philosophy doesn't enter into any of this.
btcvixen: Yes it does, as my government id says "Sex: F"
btcvixen: and you are denying me what you asked for females
mircea_popescu: your government is about as interesting as one instance of dorks playing monopoly.
asciilifeform: and ihear in europistan you can get 'Sex: martian' nao
btcvixen: where do you get off on this?
mircea_popescu: now -- stop making fraudulent claims, and find something useful to do for yourslef, there's more in the republic than titswriting.
btcvixen: i did what you asked for, why not extend yourself as promised. I told you who I am. I know who I am.
btcvixen: just because you say otherwise doesn't mean anything. You may have money but the one thing you don't have is authority over my identity.
mircea_popescu: if you persist i'll also negrate you.
btcvixen: I know who I am, and any little opinion you have is worthless to me.
