mod6: Thanks for posting.
asciilifeform: fwiw asciilifeform posts these 'from cause, not purpose' (tm)(r)

mod6: oh. ok sure.
asciilifeform: ...then substitute /dev/zero for /dev/urandom, and same
asciilifeform: ( to do this very rigorously, oughta buffer the 'random'; reading from /dev/zero is unsurprisingly slightly faster )
asciilifeform: but i think errybody gets the idea.

asciilifeform: ^ maybe like-so
mod6: ooh ok
asciilifeform tried locally, seems to satisfy p3
mod6: Like so? http://p.bvulpes.com/pastes/RLrQZ/?raw=true
asciilifeform: exactly like-so.
mod6: werd. nice :]
asciilifeform: aaand it looks like we have a 'winner' :
asciilifeform: ... or not. gotta compare /dev/zero and file of 0xFF .
asciilifeform: but know that 'iron mul' has been re-introduced (will be made selectable soon enuff) and you can use ch10 ffa to diagnose 'evil' cpu
asciilifeform: that have variable-timed MUL.
mod6: ahh.
asciilifeform: mod6: your timing result is not yet proof that you have such a box; gotta compare a static 'random' consisting of 00000.... and one of FFFF ...
asciilifeform: ( you can substitute a file for the /dev/whateverthefuck )
asciilifeform: for the given example, gotta make sure that it has at least 2MB of mass.
asciilifeform: (megabit, not megabyte)
asciilifeform: this is a deterministic test. ffacalc is made deliberately to permit one.
mod6: oh, i see. lemme see what i can drum up here...
asciilifeform: a pro seekrit : you can pipe ffacalc output to base64 -d
asciilifeform: or grrr nm
asciilifeform: not base64, but
asciilifeform: xxd -r -p
asciilifeform: so lessay you want a Mbit of 0xFF.....
asciilifeform: echo ".0~#" | ./bin/ffa_calc 1048576 32 | xxd -r -p > lotsaones.bin
asciilifeform: is your ticket.
asciilifeform: y'know,
asciilifeform: !A ".0~#"
pehbot: asciilifeform: EGGOG: Pos: 0: Stack Underflow!
asciilifeform: lolahaaha
asciilifeform: !A .0~#
pehbot: asciilifeform: FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF
asciilifeform: etc.
asciilifeform: so you get however many you want, you got it by simply using ffacalc to compute the desired integer.
asciilifeform: after that you can e.g. time echo "??\`\`*[print 0x]##[ == 0x]#[ * 0x]#" | ./bin/ffa_calc 1048576 32 lotsaones.bin | tr -d '\n' | python
mod6: ooh, ok lemme give that a shot.
asciilifeform: ( note that you do not need the 0 in .0 , i put it in for readability )
asciilifeform: !A .~#
pehbot: asciilifeform: FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF
mod6: aha, sure.
mod6: http://p.bvulpes.com/pastes/IKJAK/?raw=true << ok with feeding it in with '<' it seems to do somthing here... had some trouble trying to read it directly said 'Could not read from RNG!'
asciilifeform: mod6: you need 2Mb, recall
asciilifeform: i oughta have reminded.
mod6: yah, i thought they might be a bit small. lemme see what I can do.
asciilifeform: cuz you have two invokes, recall, "??"
mod6: yup, gotcha
asciilifeform: not 'a bit' but fully 2x toosmall
asciilifeform: aaha
mod6: how about this? http://p.bvulpes.com/pastes/1dfHJ/?raw=true
asciilifeform: right, but ideally you want a few thou of these, and a correlation calc
asciilifeform: (or at least basic stats)
asciilifeform: and replace the python with > /dev/null
asciilifeform: cuz python is (mega-unsurprise) variably-mul-ing
mod6: ah, sure.
asciilifeform: i left this as exercise but if mod6's nerves are as tight as asciilifeform's , is forgivable , lol
mod6: heheh. so you're saying do this: http://p.bvulpes.com/pastes/1VeEL/?raw=true : a few thosand times and create a graph of the differences in the timings
asciilifeform: can skip the tr lol
asciilifeform: but yes
mod6: oh my bad
asciilifeform: can even skip the #'s, you don't need the output foranything
asciilifeform: but overall yes.
mod6: so for those following along, this: http://p.bvulpes.com/pastes/OHXDh/?raw=true
asciilifeform: also if you want to experiment with even bigger numberz, turn the 32 ( that i habitually use as stack height ) into the minimal necessary 4 for this experiment
asciilifeform: that way you will not exhaust memory (gcc's default stack) when you use genuinely massive ffawidth
asciilifeform: ( if this does happen, it happens during warmup , and is harmless )
asciilifeform: e.g. 4194304 ( 4 megabit ) takes ~3s on my box here.
asciilifeform: ( go and try same with ch9 ! )
asciilifeform: this of course is not a surprise to folx who actually read. but still fun.
asciilifeform bbl,food
asciilifeform: in other oddities: http://www.riotsys.com
asciilifeform: ( before anyone asks -- i have nfi who this is )
asciilifeform: 'RS-16 has a single-tasking "operating system" whose source fits on a few pages of paper and is easily understandable by anyone who speaks C. The operating system only implements the functions that you need for editing text, crypto and transferring files. It lives in ROM and cannot run programs from disk, eliminating a range of attack vectors.'
asciilifeform: but for some reason also 'Optional: Bluetooth Module RN42-XV' ...
asciilifeform: ( author also of e.g. http://interim-os.com and a few other interesting nuggets )
asciilifeform: in lulz*2, the last link in 1st para of 'rs-16' goes to a ... 'This video is no longer available because the YouTube account associated with this video has been terminated.'
mod6: asciilifeform: http://p.bvulpes.com/pastes/kkTSP/?raw=true
asciilifeform: oh hey hey hey
asciilifeform: mod6: leave it to run overnight for coupla million shots
asciilifeform: (each)
mod6: sure. will do.
asciilifeform: then post the magic figures, and include what type of iron was used.
asciilifeform: ^ and for anybody else who wants to try.
asciilifeform: i'ma set some up later this wk meself.
mod6: cool :]
asciilifeform: yay.
asciilifeform: will be lulzy incidentally if the diff goes the other way when you move the files somewhere else on disk and rename'em etc
asciilifeform: ( i.e. if it's due to where the inodes are, or the like )
asciilifeform: anyffinspossible. which is why experiment.
mod6: ah, sure. makes sense.
mod6: will run tonight.

ben_vulpes: thanks, ave1
ben_vulpes: remind me of what these rules and bylaws are again?

ben_vulpes: how does that follow from my and mod6 personal responsibility for everything the foundation does
ben_vulpes: what, we release a trb that steals your coins and somehow nobody is to blame? get real
lobbes: yeah ave1, I'm not sure how you arrived at that conclusion. Foundation is two guys who each have a distinct identity that can be impaled by the forum's punishment gazette at any time. I fail to see the pantsuit properties of the solution

mircea_popescu wasn't going to read the logs ; but then hanbot insisted. all the better.
mircea_popescu: mod6 i'm not against you taking over ; but mind that as you also mention, BingoBoingo 's problem wasn't lack of access to capital (i dunno why this keeps being the expectation, as it's scarcely yet been the case, we're drastically overcapitalized is the entire fucking problem to begin with). BingoBoingo 's problem was lack of access to middle management, and it nigh on killed him. so for this to work, that's the key element.
mircea_popescu: that aside, i don't necessarily want to be paid cash or anything ; carry the same http://btcbase.org/log/2018-02-11#1783243 on the books alongside whatever you're adding via the foundation and it'll be fine.☝︎

mircea_popescu: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-02-12#1783451 << very much that exactly. the pantsuit rides on a high and mighty horse of "oh, capitalists don't account for ALL the externalities", hence its trojan horse of "environmentalism", because mind you that people making the civilisation run haven't in their ledger of costs and benefits a line for the obscure pondfish of extinction, and this, while epsilon, IS TILL NOT ZERO!!! concerntrol☝︎
a111: Logged on 2018-02-12 19:55 lobbes: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-02-12#1783439 << this thread puts much in perspective. In all my arguments with socialist aquaintances, it always seems like it boils down to "well, if there's failure that just means we haven't tried xyz magical configuration of policies yet!". I.e. "goal posts" can be moved ad infinitum (in their eyes, that is)
mircea_popescu: olol.
mircea_popescu: MEANWHILE, however, they have 100% unaccounted for the time externality. so basically it's a contest consisting of a guy without legs going about finding fault with people's fingers. because he's decided "legs don't count", and so as he has much better hands than the rest of those losers he should be captain of the football team.
mircea_popescu: somehow we're asked to forgive the plain fact that pantsuit's socialist paradise will NEVER come, because let's all focus on how some species got extincted for sucking bad enough to need the measure.

BingoBoingo: ben_vulpes might be able to supply middle management if he takes an active interest in this venture. But as per http://www.thedrinkingrecord.com/2018/02/13/a-summary-of-bbisp-activity/#comment-114709 I would like to see new management present at least one plan where they envision keeping the corpse warm for a month and pulling the plug if they find it unfeasible in a way that allows BingoBoingo to survive in a position no wosre than
BingoBoingo: after his recent attempt to fly to the sun.
mircea_popescu: how you hodling up ?
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: One day at a time. This has been good for my AA basics even if the local AA seems more cargo cult as my spanish improves.
BingoBoingo: But with the IspWish... With a mircea_popescu venture I had a good idea I was playing with a knife. I have a lot of uncertainty what a mod6, ben_vulpes, alf coalition offers that mircea_popescu didn't other than padding and yet to be determined quality of middle management. If they present an escape plan it would provide a lot of comfort.
mircea_popescu: it's funny what parts turn out rotten/unreliable huh. you'd think there's nothing intrinsically orc about AA, it's a fundamental human thing, how could they botch it ?!
mircea_popescu: then you discover muslims don't know how to fuck, either, and realise that no, being an orc is a very substantial thing. it's not just foreign / neologistic items they fuck up.
mircea_popescu: they're fuckups altogether, as a substance not as a coincidental, environment-driven property.
mircea_popescu: sure as waterlillies nobody put an import tax on AA, there or anywhere else. and yet.
BingoBoingo: Seriously.
mircea_popescu: orc can't be honest. not because doesn't want to or anything, but because honesty requires a live intelligence.

mircea_popescu: can't you call any of the old time folk in the us ?
BingoBoingo: I have been doing that, but for Step 5 it doesn't seem right if you can't look the other person in the eye
mircea_popescu: there is that.
BingoBoingo: Gotta have a live intelligence to reflect against, to get the relief outta being honest

BingoBoingo 's problem was lack of access to middle management, and it nigh on killed him. so for this to work, that's the key element.

asciilifeform: quasi-relatedly, seems like BingoBoingo has already not 1 but 2 working and synced trb nodez
asciilifeform: i somehow missed this
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: It is one bitcoind instance talking outta two ips.
mircea_popescu: pretty vool.
mircea_popescu: cool*
BingoBoingo: It turns out trb doesn't bind to a port. Thusly if you change the myip parameter other boxes will talk to it on the old ip out of habit in addition to the new.
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: at the risk of pedantry , it binds indeed to a port, http://btc.yt/lxr/satoshi/source/src/net.cpp?v=makefiles#1174 , BUT! , does not bind ~to one ip~ , http://btc.yt/lxr/satoshi/source/src/net.cpp?v=makefiles#1206
asciilifeform: prolly oughta be fixed.
BingoBoingo: Ah
BingoBoingo: The pedantry in this case is appreciated.
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: congrats incidentally on uncovering the must-fix-itude of this
mircea_popescu: not so clear why it needs to be fixed ?
BingoBoingo: Not necessarily a must fix. We have a cheap and easy hack to fill a fuckton of ip space if necessary.
mircea_popescu: i've been usinfg it for years.
asciilifeform: i also using for years. but suppose you wanted to run two instances of trb on one box, on separate ips.
mircea_popescu: why ?
asciilifeform: (why, is separate q : perhaps a testing trb, and a classical trb ? )
mircea_popescu: the concept of separation here is meaningless.
mircea_popescu: even if you do so run two, you still want both to see the whole "pool"
asciilifeform: fact of the matter is that all reasonably well-behaved socket proggies take a config as to where to bind
asciilifeform: rather than 'bahahaha i'ma take up whole box'
mircea_popescu: apparently not.
mircea_popescu: the concept of "separation" is not useful.
asciilifeform: what's the use of plugging >1 ip addr into a box, if all the proggies get served on all of'em
mircea_popescu: that the heathens can't discern how many boxes
mircea_popescu: strictly, STRICTLY that.
asciilifeform: but in this case , observe, they ~can~
mircea_popescu: you didn't.
BingoBoingo: Only because it has been mentioned
asciilifeform: ( i didn't bother to. but eventually would notice that when one is hanging, so is other )
mircea_popescu: maybe bad switch
asciilifeform: similarly a heathen could get himself malleused and notice that both 'separate' nodes simultaneously disconnect him
BingoBoingo: Ironically when I tried to force bitcoind onto one ip through an iptables rule that did make it hang. Since I stopped trying that it hasn't hung.
asciilifeform: at any rate this is an easy patch if somebody finds a reason to patch it.
BingoBoingo: <asciilifeform> similarly a heathen could get himself malleused and notice that both 'separate' nodes simultaneously disconnect him << At this point heathen is expending effort
BingoBoingo: Anyways patch might be to introduce a bindip= param in the .config

lobbes: Can always just state realname in logs/blog and point to it when asked. (speaking of which, I realize I never have done this. So, for the logs, my real name is Eric Benevides)
TomServo: lobbes: Continuity break? As I understood there was a (perhaps annoying to trinque) process for renewing keys.
ben_vulpes: TomServo: you're talking about updating the nonsense "name" field on your kochrsa key?
TomServo: ben_vulpes: I'm talking about changing my irc handle, such as yourself.
asciilifeform: a number of folx changed handles, it doesn't break anything
TomServo: Wouldn't a FG powered kochrsa be preferred over no FG?
ben_vulpes: what do *you* prefer, TomServo
TomServo: That would be my preference, but if you're telling me there is no benefit in it, I wouldn't bother.
lobbes: For some reason I had the delusion that handle and key were inexorably linked in deedbot. I stand corrected
lobbes: So I guess only "breakage" here would be in log only, which wouldn't be a breakage at all to those paying attention
ben_vulpes: TomServo: not saying no benefit, would actually be a great thing to do and write up: "so you want to fuckgoats your gpg"
trinque: there is no process for changing the key-nick relationship other than asking me pretty please
trinque: and the volume of these does not merit automation, and there are significant downsides to automating it.
trinque: wise folks will pick both a nick and key they can live with.
asciilifeform: fwiw i never felt any urge to change nick. it is short enuff and if someone laughs at it it does me no harm. i sign my posts with human name fwiw.
TomServo: I think a new key is neccessary in my case and figured if changing nicks, that'd be the time.
TomServo: ben_vulpes: Surprised this has not been done. I'll add to the (geological!) list.
trinque: ah, in which case can just register it
TomServo: trinque: and forego any existing ratings?
trinque: well, I open that up to the forum. they rated "TomServo" with key K1. TomServo comes along and demonstrates to me that he controls both K1 and K2, and wants to transfer ratings to K2 under $newNick.
TomServo: Perhaps I misremember, didnt' asciilifeform renew a key and maintain ratings?
asciilifeform: TomServo: i still have same modulus as when first tuned in
TomServo: ah
asciilifeform: no fewer than 3 times submitted 'updated' gpg pub with new date ( finally got tired of this, put in a null date )
trinque: TomServo: I have so far made an exception for the fig-leaf expiration field, with the understanding that this exception goes away when P
trinque: they're not of the same form though; this is "trinque is now trusted to do arbitrary swaps between keys and ratings"
trinque: and I'm dim on wanting to make that a "feature"
TomServo: Makes sense.
trinque: undermines that you are *THAT MODULUS*
asciilifeform: trinque: imho it would be reasonable for you to charge something, for the labour of modulus swap
trinque: isn't the labor involved
trinque: it's what the meaning of holding a particular key is.
TomServo: exception goes away, meaning folks are generally expected to make a new key when P exists?
trinque: oughta be able to import parameters neh?
trinque: I pgpdump the db and extract them on my end, seamless transition
trinque: TomServo: not saying people are expected to do any particular thing yet
asciilifeform: i for one intend to retire the modulus i made on kochian prng.
trinque: that's what "open that up to the forum" means
trinque: TomServo: how will folks that rated you under one nick and key know that I (hypothetically) moved your ratings to another nick and key
trinque: I think when you start enumerating those kinds of cases, there are many, and it's the sort of systemd hair we're familiar with.
BingoBoingo: !~ticker --market all
trinque: I am now damned to manage every exception
asciilifeform: trinque: consider one possible cut of the knot : people to rate moduli, not nicks
asciilifeform: ( i.e. the pov that nick is merely a convenient method of referring to a key . )
trinque: I'm clearly leaning towards that they rate keys, yes
asciilifeform: it seems to me to be The Right Thing
asciilifeform: nick is clothes worn by a key.
trinque: indeed. and moving them to another meaningless. your friends like you, they'll rate you again.
trinque: if not, what was the point of the rating? a merit badge?
asciilifeform: well the friends who still live.
trinque: can keep the historic key too and tell the grandkids remember when
asciilifeform: ( there was an old mp thread tho, about this, where he convincingly argued that only live people matter in re ratings )
trinque: there's also the interesting question of what wot ratings look like in a gossipd world. yes, I will still warehouse my repository of wot data, but I'd also be happy to chatter ratings to other nodes.
trinque: that can either be a simple protocol, or a complex one with key history and whatever other nonsense gets dreamed up.
trinque: I think simple's right.
asciilifeform: whatever else is done -- simple protocols are best.
asciilifeform: ( but trick is, simple ~when seen as a whole~, rather than 'html-simple' where the building block is simply very dumb and to do anything even slightly complicated on it, requires herculean effort )
asciilifeform: think back to the 'commonlisp vs scheme' wars.
trinque: indeed, only so simple as completeness allows.
asciilifeform: relatedly i burned much time on graphics-generators but in the end threw all out, ended up writing ch10's physical diagrams in ordinary htm
