ave1: Also, self-pings did not work on nfs hosting (and probably other website hosters)
ave1: For mp-wp.
diana_coman: ave1, that highbit/lowbit thing is touched upon in http://www.dianacoman.com/2017/12/07/introducing-eucrypt/#selection-133.195-133.456 ; I'll look again at it though and in more detail at your suggestion, thank you
ave1: Turns out that the pingback fix in mp-wp, will reject self-pings as the ip address does not match (backend code runs on different server than front end site)
ave1: So the filter needs to be adjusted a little
ave1: This is what I have now: http://wotpaste.cascadianhacker.com/pastes/NJhMO/?raw=true
ave1: I'm logging the pings, to check how I can enumerate the good sites
diana_coman: ave1, and the trouble with changing stuff in mpi is that one needs to track afterwards ALL calls/uses of that code; I was rather avoiding changing mpi unless I really really needed
diana_coman: needed to*
ave1: diana_coman: I can understand!
diana_coman: found it: http://www.dianacoman.com/2017/12/28/eucrypt-chapter-3-miller-rabin-implementation/#selection-169.0-169.1019 <- ave1
diana_coman: ave1 I really appreciate your scrutiny of eucrypt - keep it up! :)
ave1: no problem! I'm working on a command line tool with eucrypt and I keep hitting my head against seemingly strange code. Which needs to be read and re-read, and then checked.
ave1: Also the terminology of high/low, leading/trailing, bits/limbs/octets etc. keeps tripping me up. The limbs are stored low to high, wich means 0 is trailing, n is leading.

mircea_popescu: asciilifeform it's a scandal!
mircea_popescu: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-03-21#1788331 << whitelist-only pinging might well be an improvement on the current situation worth discussing. so on the basis of trilema experience :☝︎
a111: Logged on 2018-03-21 13:30 ave1: I'm logging the pings, to check how I can enumerate the good sites
mircea_popescu: the advantage of the current system (anyone can ping, ips must match, not seen before sources go in mod queue) is that anyone can just ping, without prior arrangement.
asciilifeform: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-03-21#1788357 << it is 'broken' like this : you don't get a box (or even virtual box) with a particular ip, on nfs co, but rather a thing reminiscent of crapflare (but built ~20yrs prior) where the dns resolves as ip x for some loads, ip y for others, etc. so as to spread the ddosolade around. ( somewhat surprisingly, it actually worx -- eats multi-GB without coughing )☝︎

mircea_popescu: this advantage is however massively moderated by the sheer lunatic imbecility of english speakers, whereby i do not think it has happened yet that five people actually linked to an article on trilema without prior arrangement, such as their having a wot presence etc. there's one exception that comes to mind, some dood running a "dark underground" or w/e blog. this OVER TEN YEARS nigh on.
mircea_popescu: the disadvantage, and it is marked, is that there's an endless supply of "independent" and hallucinatorily "free" imbeciles, and EACH AND EVERY ONE will have to try foisting any idiotic little scheme from the annals of ancient schemes upon the entire world.
mircea_popescu: as a result, trilema answers xmlrpc.php calls to the tune of ten a second every second, every day of every week of ever year. there's many many millions each month, no exception to date.
mircea_popescu: and they'll do it 1mn times per ip, no problem, they just set up the script, until the host kicks them off they literally don't care about anything.
mircea_popescu: what "look and see if my idiocy works" ?!?! that's practically racism.
mircea_popescu: now, if xmlrpc.php had a whitelist, something as simple as a htaccess deny from all allow from x, this whole idiocy would go away.
mircea_popescu: the disadvantage, of course, is that you have to now police a private, hand-cobbled dns, because ips change.
mircea_popescu: which is why i've not done it to date.
asciilifeform: probably easier to manually curate a list of friendly items that linked to yours, and dispense with the wp automagic ping thing
mircea_popescu: i loathe to curate anything by hand.
mircea_popescu: point in case -- you think you can curate by hand a list of friends, yet your "blogroll" is perpetually out of date ; i don't have one nor ever had one for this exact reason, i ain't handcurating jack.
mircea_popescu: whole fucking point of even having computers is to not curate things by hand.
mircea_popescu: ave1 that all make sense ?
ave1: Yes indeed! Also about the curating
mircea_popescu: what i would REALLY like would be a pill whereby something spawned forth by cunt speaking english is NO LONGER this fundamentally idiotic moron who simply can not engage the world.
mircea_popescu: go talk to a girl and ping a blog, motherfuckers, jesus fucking christ on a cracker they LIED TO YOU, it's immoral NOT TO! you don't catch anything from sticking it into the wet sight unseen.
mircea_popescu: you catch stupid by FOREGOING that sticking!

asciilifeform: in other quasi-noose, if n is p*q, and 4p-1 = d*b^2, where b is integer and d is in {3,11,19,43,67,163}, n is factorable in polynomial time (with modest constant!)

mircea_popescu: in fact and rather transparently, the whole "secret curve" pseudocryptography is a direct result of all the nsa time spent chasing those a and b (no b doesn't HAVE TO BE 2, just as long as you know how you round it can also be a real)
mircea_popescu: after having idiots driven through the deserts for 20 years over at "secret labs", something like EC is a necessary byproduct just for the sake of maintaining whatever shreds of sanity.
