mircea_popescu just re-read it, and it's like... hello 1995! where were you all these years!
mircea_popescu: here's the sad fact of the matter : if you plot the HVF against the IVF, you will discover that the diff doesn't get above water until far far FAR three standard fucking deviations out in right field. for most humans information value is negative.
mircea_popescu: (where HVF is the human value function, ie in most cases http://trilema.com/2014/the-battlefield-of-the-future/#selection-133.333-133.484 ; and IVF the information value function, ie in most cases... http://trilema.com/2014/holy-shit-technical-analysis-is-real/#footnote_0_57849 )
mircea_popescu: and i don't even mean ~subjective~ functions here! it's not a case that "to the exceptionally gifted as identified by ivy league, worth as he is maybe $1000 with clothes included, the subjectively perceived marginal value of information is slightly negative. no, no, no, OBJECTIVE, you can tell him whatever the fuck you will and he will not have any use for it -- i don't mean "he won't be able to find any use, above his $1k pa

mircea_popescu: we're not even considering the point of, "could okcupid/facebook/mit/etc scum rewrite trilema". we are considering whether "the collective of x" COULD EVEN BENEFIT from reading it.
asciilifeform: i suspect that the 'benefits from reading x' circle is never all ~that~ much larger than the corresponding 'could have written x' circle.
mircea_popescu: http://trilema.com/2011/la-ce-imi-serveste-mie-radicalurile/ fails to even consider or discuss this point (for sheer lack of interest at the time), BUT : for most people, square roots as the concept do not bring any sort of gain.
shinohai: A monkey hitting keys at random on a typewriter keyboard for an infinite amount of time will surely recreate Trilema!
asciilifeform: dunno, even carpenter uses sqrt
mircea_popescu: teaching MOST girls basic numeracy is not actually a gain for the most girls in question ; the whole thing is that for the ~very fucking few~ for whom it IS a gain, it is such a thundersome gain it eclipses the "inconvenience" imposed upon the majority.
asciilifeform: but plankton -- does not, no
mircea_popescu: which is why societies that fail to teach basic numeracy to girls as a collective spring up all the time, and quite naturally : they are realising "savings" in the sense of bacteriums.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform and so what if "Even carpenter" ? most items that crawl out from between woman's legs can never be a carpenter.
mircea_popescu: fucking jesus was a MEDIOCRE carpenter.
mircea_popescu: but yes, asciilifeform 's suspicion is very much my own -- the "chuka writer" and the "chuka reader" circles are very close to identity.
mircea_popescu: (has any of the reformed-judaism-that-calls-itself-xtianity folk even CONSIDER to date that it's fucking weird their divine item was shown as ~a very competent nigger~, talking smack in church and whatnot, but is not even CONSIDERED in terms of his vocation ? where's the passage in the "here's what we stole from torah" where it is gone into detail as to the quality of the man's joints ? because there's oodlebunches of idle pa

asciilifeform: i'd luvv to find that i botched it with idjit mistake and in fact it worx
mircea_popescu: it's the expectation here.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu didja ever describe how your spamfilter worked, in the logz ?
hanbot: asciilifeform i'm using mp-wp on nfs and spam works pretty much as expected ---though having ~10k marked spam comments helps.
mircea_popescu: there's a number of parts to it! but it makes no foreign calls / doesn't rely on the akismet bs, if you can run php oyu definitely should be able to run it
asciilifeform: hanbot: what means '10k marked spam comments' ? and didja ever post your patches on mp-wp ?
asciilifeform: and if it works on hanbot's www, it oughta work in mine, unless hanbot's definition of 'works' differs from mine
mircea_popescu: one thing it does is <input type="text" name="author18c6e55" with that hash changing daily (or how often you please) ; another thing it does is a "refuse from ips in spam list" ; there's more i might nor recall right off.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i dun expect it is possible for it to not work if wp otherwise does work.
asciilifeform: how is spam list updated ?
mircea_popescu: it has a queue of items to be reviewed (by default everything with a link goes in there). so in this sense it takes some training.
asciilifeform: other thing, does it require a php that has write permission to the disk ?
mircea_popescu: (well, not exactly, "anything with a link not on a list of permitted links", but anyway)
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform no, it has a db, from wordpress.
hanbot: 10k marked spam comments means spammy ips are stored and attempted comments from same don't show up in admin, subjectively over time it's seemed i need to spend less time mopping shitcomments. and i didn't post proper patches, but will.
asciilifeform: neat
mircea_popescu: i have Spam (17,852)
asciilifeform: hanbot: i'd luvv a working-with-nfs patchset on mp's wp. unfortunately my own wwwism proved insufficient to make it go.

hanbot: i'm trying to make a genesis for mp-wp ; first coupla lines of vdiff's output could be a problem: http://wotpaste.cascadianhacker.com/pastes/irACN/?raw=true . what's the policy on this?
deedbot: http://trilema.com/2018/iti-minca-cinii-din-straita/ << Trilema - Iti minca cinii din straita
phf: hanbot: there's no policy on this, it's an unsolved problem with lots of different solutions
phf: the oldest solution, by i believe mp, is "replace all the mp-wp images with their svg equivalents"
mircea_popescu: myeah. phf will your differ properly handle binaries by hash ?
phf: second solution that was entertained by ascii was to base64 encode binaries and have a second pass with something like makefile to pack them back into place
hanbot: hmm, alright
phf: third solution, that's latest conversation in logs on subj is that perhaps binary blobs don't really belong in a vdiff which is a human readable code container, and should just be packed separately into e.g. a signed TAR archive and unpacked into place as a second pass
mircea_popescu: hanbot honestly looking at the list, just delete them
mircea_popescu: let people provide their fucking own avatar favicon etc.
phf: you're going to run into png's that are admin interface ux elements that you can't just delete
mircea_popescu: ;/
hanbot: yeah
mircea_popescu: how come not on her list ?
phf: there's a reason why mp-wp hasn't been genesised yet :p
hanbot: mircea_popescu they're further down in the vpatch. ugh.
phf: mircea_popescu: it's not clear to me what "properly handle" is, given the many conversations on the subj. there's no reason why it couldn't if there was some direction as far as proper. i'm personally leaning towards the idea that binary blobs shouldn't be in vpatch (as per latest thread on subj), but it's a non-pragmatic take ☟︎
mircea_popescu: phf there's no direction re proper cuz of first principle issues, i dun want to make dumb part of the history.
phf: right
phf: (there's yet another solution is to actually provide a binary patcher, that uses some minimal delta algorithm to patch files, while also providing the patching details in plain text. so you could say that the result is readable in a sense that it takes file FOO and replaces bits #10 #1343 #325435 etc)

mircea_popescu: and con stands for confidence game, ie scam.
shinohai: Some of us do like to lul about it when it happens, notwithstanding.
mircea_popescu: hanbot http://trilema.com/2018/iti-minca-cinii-din-straita/ << pretty terrible, lost all transparency etc. but WILL WORK.
mircea_popescu: i would definitely put up with this in exchange for all-svg.
mircea_popescu: and at 5kb which is mostly comment crap...
douchebag: Ohh right, I understand. I agree, however to me I treat web application pentesting as almost a sort of game or puzzle, in my opinion it is rather entertaining challenge to be able to modify a web applications behavior in a way that leads to total comprimise.
mircea_popescu: i guess. stuff like http://trilema.com/2016/to-the-dao-and-the-ethereum-community-fuck-you/ pays better.
mircea_popescu: but yes, fucking up the empire's "technology" ie, websites, is a perfectly fine entry point towards actual life.
douchebag: I plan on learning more about low level memory exploitation in the future, however it's a bit more difficult these days due to stack canaries and other protections to prevent that sort of stuff from happening.
mircea_popescu: i thought the whole "memory security" shit sandwich just got blown to smithereens coupla weeks ago.
douchebag: Oh it did
mircea_popescu: how old are you, if you don't mind teh asking ?
douchebag: I'm 19
mircea_popescu: to quote the universal george c. "that's a fun age!"
hanbot: mircea_popescu : if you'd prefer, there's also a format to encapsulate em as base64: http://wotpaste.cascadianhacker.com/pastes/RlPyK/?raw=true
mircea_popescu: anyway, you're on to something here douchebag ; work on it, with serious dedication, by the time you're as old as the rest of these guys you'll prolly be more valuable than them.
mircea_popescu: hanbot o shit yeah! you just cracked this nut wide open.
mircea_popescu: do me a favour and walk the list of binary images, applying one or the other as best fits.
mircea_popescu: no-binary mp-wp is a major fucking progress ; and if we set the groundwork for eventual complete rejection of all binary formats, image and then video, holy hell we got it.
hanbot: kk!
douchebag: Thanks man, I've been spending a lot of my time focusing on security research and helping others get involved in the InfoSec community. I have a pretty decent resume compared to most people I go to college with because I have a pretty decent amount of experience, and when it comes to InfoSec jobs experience is probably the most important factor for most employers ☟︎
spyked: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-01-21#1773463 <-- lol! and quite naive, didn't actually consider information value at all; kinda begs the question of the ifv in the ol' library of alexandria. probably a lot higher than the web, given the economy of writing (imposed by those times' tech). brings us back full circle to http://btcbase.org/log/2016-05-30#1473632 ☝︎☝︎

a111: Logged on 2016-05-30 15:37 asciilifeform: but i find it hard to see how it is not obvious that 'every sewer rat can publish' is a considerable damper on culture
spyked: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-01-21#1773596 <-- iirc intN_t are C99-specific types, but gcc 4.8 and 4.9 compile just fine, assuming stdint.h is included (workedfor me even with -std=c90) ☝︎
a111: Logged on 2018-01-21 21:38 trinque: my current wager is folks that had it were using a gcc5, which is defaulted to a later standard for C
trinque: read moar context.
trinque: that is exactly what the patch did, include stdint.h
trinque: my question was particularly what let people get by without it, and it appears to be a question of what c standard was the default in what gcc
spyked looked at the patch. admits to not being able to compile an example with gcc 4.9 nor 5; so there's probably more to it, e.g. C++ voodoo. I'm curious of asciilifeform's answer ☟︎
trinque also
