BingoBoingo: http://trilema.com/2016/cia-factbook-the-most-serene-republic/ << Maybe the people and society section needs updating? Maybe it doesn't? Glories of no formal surveys!
mircea_popescu: it's the way of cia factbooks to be half a decade out of date.
mircea_popescu: "these facts were factual at some point"
BingoBoingo: Ambiguity ftw!
douchebag: hey trinque
douchebag: I have some girls who are gonna wanna show tits tomorrow
douchebag: will the bot be back up and working by then?
trinque: most likely yes. there's an ISP outage.
trinque: oughta be back on later today, but the ministry of comcast, who knows
trinque: relatedly, I'm going to instate a withdrawal fee. will decide what that is later
trinque: if I'm moving this from a "hey use my airgap system for cheap" to "high throughput wallet system" it's going to pay for itself
mircea_popescu: trinque charge whatever the network fee is and there you go.
trinque: still doesn't really pay for me cutting txn; obviously the ideal is I cut txn to refill a hot wallet, bot can use up to hot wallet balance without operator interaction.
trinque: since I am unwilling to bail the thing out if the hotwallet piggy is popped, I have been reluctant to do that.
mircea_popescu: at this phase the incentive should still principally be to streamline things.
trinque: douchebag: asking you to review trb's deps wasn't idly selected
mircea_popescu: trinque how much does it need to be ? so far < 1 btc per day or so neh ?
trinque: yeah, but I'm not extending people trb+linux+amd64 insurance
mircea_popescu: what do you evaluate the odds of it getting popped at ?
mircea_popescu: ~ example of question to be answered correctly above ~
trinque: really depends on whether it's a political or economic reason for attack.
trinque: sub BTC piggy isn't worth that much, but "lul popped republican wallet operator" is
mircea_popescu: i... guess.
mircea_popescu: contrariwise though, there's not that much per-tx cost the system can bear.
mircea_popescu: i can't imagine half dozen tx/day sorta debit can in any meaningful sense "pay for itself".
mircea_popescu: (consider that these are uncharacteristically generious txn, most of the world still operates on the 19.95 walmart standard.)
trinque: txn fees on my recent ones have been something like 0.00001, at the low end
mircea_popescu: that's pretty good.
mircea_popescu: kinda how my reasoning went, "he's pretty good at getting tx fees optimized, chances are users won't even notice they're paying, when comparing with $average-webservice."
trinque checks date.
mircea_popescu: it's friday, april 13th
trinque: you know the hard drive on the box cutting txn died too, this week?
trinque: dundundun
mircea_popescu: lol.
mircea_popescu: trinque anyway, one reasonable measure to cost control is to do all txn once a day, every day. ish.
mircea_popescu: that way a) you get automated txn bundling, reducing fees and b) you don't have to keep doing it.
trinque: that's about what I've been doing
mircea_popescu: you ~could~ add a deedbot command like !!pending which'd list all pending items and the estimated next send ("Next tx push on Fri, Apr 14 at 8:14 pm -- in 25hours). gives people something to do with their time.
trinque: isn't always going to be the case that I'm next to the machine at the same time
mircea_popescu: you just update a field with "next tx".
trinque: but sure, thing could say "estimated dispatch $time"
trinque: yep
mircea_popescu: generally should be able to guess at the time you'd do it today what time'd be convenient tomorrow sorta deal
mircea_popescu: but, to be plain, it is a lot of work, and very useful, and very finnicky / highly qualified / high responsibility. so absolutely you should make bank for doing it.
mircea_popescu: problem with it is that such a thing only pays after getting large enough.
trinque: very true.
trinque: I'd actually like to find a path to the hot wallet sooner than later, for reasons of getting large enough
mircea_popescu: kinda the dilemma of "democratic society" aka "people have rights / are best judges of how to deploy their own resources" etc. you end up with the walmart world and either you chase the britney spears fanbase or else can't cover costs.
trinque: probably just going to set a ceiling on it, and grow the ceiling over time
trinque: let whatever comes in as revenue trickle over into a rainy day fund if a wallet gets popped
mircea_popescu: trinque the line i was going on with the "what odds do you give" is that CDB is indelible from the book, stays there in red. cost of carry of capital, goods or otherwise, and so on.
mircea_popescu: you're stuck investing $hotwallet-size * $failure-odds into the business that it could be, like it or not. just like your time.
mircea_popescu: now, i am in the fortunate position of having valuable experience : bitbet's hotwallet was 1btc ; and it was never popped.
mircea_popescu: (1 btc worth, it was actually 10, but they came to about 5-10k or such)
trinque: that's good to know.
mircea_popescu: now, kako for all his weird was certainly technically competent, so it's not the case that "there lay a trb in the rain".
mircea_popescu: but i don't judge you all that dizzy, either.
douchebag: trinque: In regards to trb deps
douchebag: I'm definitely going to look into them
douchebag: and I have some friends really big into RE who are going to be helping
trinque: mircea_popescu: just trying to frontload the decisions so I'm not on my ear when somethign raises its head.
douchebag: one is ex-military and worked on reverse engineering enemy weapons ect...
mircea_popescu: trinque quite sensible.
trinque: I've handled orders of magnitude more bezzlebucks elsewhere and yet this obviously, I care a great deal more about.
trinque: never bitten on either side, but want it kept that way
trinque: also there's the radiation damage of the former screaming never again while working on the latter
douchebag: I just want to have a dedicated box to review these on, and as mircea_popescu mentioned I'll be sent a server
douchebag: to install this stuff on
trinque: I think you are right, and I'll just consider this an investment in the thing's growth
mircea_popescu: trinque you might be overdramatizing ; what, you think i've never lost a team ? what am i, made of pure energy ? shit happens ; gotta have plans in place and move on.
mircea_popescu: douchebag you're getting it, you're getting it.
trinque: alright douchebag, your flood of titties made me agree to a hotwallet
mircea_popescu: truth be told it was mostly ckeen
mircea_popescu: what happened to him lol!
trinque: ah yeah, was wasn't it
trinque: at any rate I approve of this engineering process
mircea_popescu: douchebag are you actually doing skag btw ?
trinque will be back in about an hour, perhaps the idiot ISP will be back by then.
mircea_popescu: another obvious angle here being, hey ben_vulpes mod6, considering the very useful and important work trinque's doing, imo best illustrated by http://btcbase.org/log/2018-04-12#1797663 is there any chance he'd get a one time grant from tbf ?☝︎
a111: Logged on 2018-04-12 18:58 mircea_popescu: avgjoe it's exactly equivalent to "segwit" except much less expensive.
ben_vulpes: for teh cbd?
ben_vulpes: cdb*
mod6: I'd be happy to hear proposls, indeed!
mod6: Speaking of which, ben_vulpes, let me know what you think, but to help keep track of these grants, I think the applicants for a Foundation grant, should write up a small document outlining: 1) How much they are requesting, 2) What the intended purpose is for the grant, 3) The Duration (if any, i.e. one year, or one-time, etc), 4) The current block height / date. 5) Signed with WoT Key.
mod6: Upon approval these can be deeded so we can keep track. I'm starting to have a hard time remembering them all!
mod6: :D
mircea_popescu: well, the idea is that indeed he's on the hook, for a particular type of cost. obviously writing code, reviewing code, testing things, design, graphic or systems, all sorts of things are useful and valuable, and they take people's time. if you spend an hour reading through patches you can't spend that hour petting your dog/kitten/kid whatever.
mircea_popescu: nevertheless, you know aforehand, when you sit down to read through a patch, that you're gonna spend so long with it, and you'll stop when you stop.
mircea_popescu: whereas this, it's more a case of carrying a knife up your ass. it decides when and what.
mircea_popescu: i dunno if i'm making any sense. am i ?
mod6: I view his work on deedbot & wallet as highly-necessary and critical. So you kinda read my mind when you asked us above.
mircea_popescu: specifically being able to say, "oh, yeah, segwit, whatever, the power ranger's version of deedbot's !!pay, right ?" is a tmsr-wide benefit.
mod6: You're totally making sense. It could be a reoccuring grant; needs to be re-newed yearly (or some interval). I'm not in the best position to have an idea as to what is a sensible amount for the interval.
mircea_popescu: i'm guessing if it covers his original hotwallet it's all roses.
mircea_popescu: if he doesn't get popped, it needs no renewal, it's permanent. and if he does... well...
mod6: My initial thought was that the Foundation would say, offer a one time engineering fee of 1 BTC. And then also provide insurance for the hot wallet to the tune of say, 1 BTC.
mod6: Maybe that's not as reasonable as what you're suggesting though -- a reoccuring grant.
mircea_popescu: just give him a bitcoin to seed his hotwallet, and call it a day.
mod6: I'd be fine with that. I'd even go a bit further and throw in some extra funding for the development, historical and forward.
mircea_popescu: if he manages to lose it we can have words about maybe another one ; but it'd better not be this year.
mircea_popescu: mod6 you can't afford to pay for development. i appreciate the sentiment, and i'm not saying his work is negligible, but if you count all the IMMENSE amount of devwork the republic has produced, however you add it up you'll either a) be on the hook for more than the foundation has, significantly more, or else b) you'll be stuck taking lowball to the level of insulting people.
mircea_popescu: neither's a good outcome.
mod6: Aha, was thinking that part was a one time thing, The Foundation would indeed run out of money in short order.
mod6: Anyway, ok. I'm happy to approve seeding the hot-wallet.
mod6: ben_vulpes: Thoughts?
ben_vulpes: 1 btc sounds like it would insure the hotwallet for quite some time, sounds neat but let me think about it
mod6: Cool.
ben_vulpes: trinque: rang, asked me to pass on that a) he doesn't need help insuring the hotwallet, and that b) he's thinking really hard about how much of linux and the rest of the stack to insure on his own back, and the moral hazard of doing so
ben_vulpes: (look gossipd works, asciilifeform can take a nap)
ben_vulpes: thoughts topmost on my stack (after apache arcana) are about the implications of the foundation backing the 'tbtf' initiatives. i know that someone must, but going from a rate of zero in however many years to two in two quarters is worth pausing and thinking for.
mod6: Not as much ``tbtf initiatives'' as it is just the larger Republic, neh?
mod6: Anyway, can think on it.
ben_vulpes: 'too big to fail' i mean
mod6: Oh, i see.
ben_vulpes: i want to read what trinque has to say as well
mod6: No worries, no rush.
trinque: mircea_popescu: wallet is back online
trinque: ben_vulpes: that's an accurate rendering of my opinion. I think mircea_popescu was correct in that there's an unavoidable cost of doing business of a startup wallet service.
trinque: element of this http://btcbase.org/log/2017-07-19#1686516 every time one thinks about running a serious service on the modern shitpile☝︎
a111: Logged on 2017-07-19 01:32 mircea_popescu: http://btcbase.org/log/2017-07-19#1686438 <<< yes, because you're applying the pretense of statics to a dynamic situation. trinque 's metaphore is very much factual : we were paradopped on hot coals, by the FAULT, inexcusable, and indelible, of our parents. they should have taken care that we do not get dropped on hot coals, as children barely able to move. they did not, and derelict in their first and practically speaking on
trinque: I think a 1BTC ceiling would be a satisfactory tolerance for loss from the hot wallet, which I would be able to eat. which is not a promise to eat the thing's losses endlessly either, but on the airgap-wallet side I have enough confidence in the setup that my tolerance is higher.
mod6: I'm fine with this if you are. Certainly wern't trying to force anything on you by any means.
trinque: naw, it's a compliment that you'd consider doing that.
mod6: o7

ckang: hey all
spyked: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-04-13#1798160 <-- I can definitely see this angle. my point is that by giving up the "general-purpose" pretense altogether, the system designer can qualitatively reduce the implicit trust in code running in the system. so yes, http://btcbase.org/log/2018-04-13#1798161 but moreover, one would not expect to find e.g. a pdf processing library in bitcoin node os, as "bitcoin node" can be specced all the way from☝︎☝︎
a111: Logged on 2018-04-13 16:20 mircea_popescu: now then, a "general purpose operating system" is "that set of code which is trusted implicitly", "as long as it makes no particular assumptions about the rest of the code that will run on the machine".
a111: Logged on 2018-04-13 16:21 mircea_popescu: the moment we bake in the assumption that "this is a bitcoin node", suddenly the os is no longer gp ; we'll want a special fs in there etc.
spyked: user interface, through the os and down to hardware components. which brings us back to the way engineering was done in the olden days, before that weed overdose, i.e. http://archive.is/TRrOE
spyked: every time OS insists on pulling in "udev" or "tls" or whatever other packages (tons of examples in the logs), it's because someone wanted to add more "general-purpose" scaffolding.
spyked: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-04-13#1798435 <-- not sure it's my place to comment on this, but it sounds a lot like the "academic grant" trap that I've fallen into at some point. consider this: the abstraction of money exists so that humans can attribute economic value to things. on the other side of the problem, "creating valuable things for humanity" or for "no concrete labour obligations" are not economically quantifiable (any value,☝︎
a111: Logged on 2018-04-13 20:22 zx2c4: the reason is actually, "so that i can have a fixed income without any concrete labor obligations"
spyked: including zero, can pay "no concrete labour obligations", neh?). this is why academic grants and giving away \infty btc like that is such a waste and http://btcbase.org/log/2018-04-13#1798420 . and this is also why "get into business", because it puts your skin in the game and forces you to determine the value of whatever you're selling.☝︎
a111: Logged on 2018-04-13 20:16 mircea_popescu: zx2c4 you'd be terribly worse off, and so would be the bitcoin ecosystem.
spyked: and just to be clear re "economic value": the whole system of academic grants is based upon the lie that "there are enough resources to satisfy everyone". well, there aren't, tough luck. which reduces grant proposals to a very sophisticated way of begging, i.e. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0vVpsJnbq3A
spyked should translate ^ at some point
spyked: but in short, "stretched hand that doesn't tell a story doesn't get dole"

BingoBoingo: In MVD shopping there is yet another La Cigale, Freddo's and the grocery store Tienda Inglesa if you prefer your ice cream in volume.
BingoBoingo: Actually the closest place for icecream to you is on the same block. Walk around the corner to the gas station.
