asciilifeform: https://archive.li/WFINU << ditto, may 2015; 18 broken keyz.
asciilifeform bbl,meat
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform, it's not physically possible ; everyone's born a virgin.
ben_vulpes: asciilifeform: i was asking him not speaking to my own knowledge
mircea_popescu: aaand in "readers meet trilema, an ancient story" retrospective lulz, http://trilema.com/2014/consent-is-a-myth-lets-see-how-it-came-to-be/#comment-119601
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes, i thought you were discreetly suggesting not to try.
ben_vulpes: very much in the vein of "surely you're not..."
mircea_popescu: tis what i thought.
mircea_popescu: Moduli Broken: 2143. over 2k now.
mircea_popescu: that's +76 moduli, +50 factors (35% increase). a most interestign crop.
asciilifeform: still writing , btw
mircea_popescu: much more productive in terms of new-factors density, huh.
mircea_popescu: is this coincidental ?
asciilifeform: well, 3.5mil of new keyz..
asciilifeform: whoknows what's in there.
mircea_popescu: anyway, the fact that between 4th of may and 6th of may it churned ~2mn moduli and cracked 76 is, in the terms, context and for the mind of us limp dick "researchers" nothing short of staggering.
asciilifeform: ( and yes , we can now swallow 3.5m in 2days )
mircea_popescu: apparently the republic has nsa hardware!!1
asciilifeform: takes about 70GB of ram to run.
asciilifeform: ( peak )
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform, anyway, i suppose after the jurov set is also fed a new fermatting is in order ? considering there's a lot of new numbers to play with.
mircea_popescu: ie, the factors set changed significantly enough
asciilifeform: fermat, and conventional , both
asciilifeform: will run.
mircea_popescu: aha. so this is covered for what, about 2 weeks (tm) ?
asciilifeform: approx
asciilifeform: then we can do sks.
asciilifeform: then time for new Framedragger-style hunt. or ssl hunt.
mircea_popescu: funny how the "journalists" with "interests" are all covering the various broken ssh keys in the wild.
asciilifeform: oh hey massive new burst
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform, you mean a fresh sks dump ? are we running a server or how did that go ?
asciilifeform: nope, recall, it requires a cooperating existing sks server. we -- leech manually.
mircea_popescu: factors 236 << check that out! it practically doubled it.
mircea_popescu: exciting times.
asciilifeform: takes a day or 2 to grab a snapshot of sks. another day to cut it. then swallows in 1-2d
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform, i suppose the fact of the matter is, as keys get added the likeliness of broken moduli staying secret drops... which may account for the seeming density increase.
asciilifeform: correct
mircea_popescu: let's leave some crumbs for the archival : http://phuctor.nosuchlabs.com/stats
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform, anyway, ima try an' write this up after the two weeks. unless you want to ?
asciilifeform: plz go ahead, i muchly enjoyed the last coupla phuctortrilemas
mircea_popescu: aite.
mircea_popescu: anyway, re hunt, i can't imagine why one'd just do either ssl or ssh. gotta do both really at the same time, why not.
asciilifeform: tru
mircea_popescu: see what machine exposes in .well-known/ ; and what it says on 443 just as well as on 22 or w/e.
asciilifeform: ssl crapola scan is useful also to distinguish the brokenssh boxes from one another ( as i did since the orig scan, e.g. mikrotik )
asciilifeform: ( given as sslpubkeys have commentstrings )
asciilifeform: oh heeey moooar
mother[m]: mircea_popsecu definitely not ultrasound machinery. Two ways. One is you have drones on surveillance flights. What it does provide you is a lot of high-res overlapping imagery you can generate aerial footage and 3d models of. You can combine this with other seismic and geotech surveys taken. Another way is that you have drones able to retrieve samples on-site, leaving a surveyors role more on analysis. The cost reductions
mother[m]: are substantial.
ben_vulpes: what does the sample-taking equipment look like?
ben_vulpes: what's the sampler-system design, i mean
mother[m]: ben_vulpes haven't seen it myself yet so can't say.
mother[m]: With Nadex, you're trading binary options and it's at market-set prices. Which is more than what I can say for quotes from Deribit for example. I agree on that about the bitcoin price signal. Do you see BTC trading to or past its highs this year?
mircea_popescu: mother[m], but they'd get very superficial samples neh ?
mircea_popescu doesn't know much about mineral survey, but oil at least, assays are all >100m.
mircea_popescu: anyway, bitcoin's natural value is somewhere in between 150% and 300% or so of the M3. so yes, i see bitcoin price exceeding the aggregate cash value of most countries.
mircea_popescu: 2.5 haitis to the btc sorta thing.
mircea_popescu: Moduli Broken: 2489 << asciilifeform yeah totally, this did more in a few days than the old one did per month or two.
mircea_popescu: http://phuctor.nosuchlabs.com/factor/380 << this incidentally is a great addition.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform, my question to you is : if there's "Factors Shared by Two or More Moduli: 259" reported on the stats page, yet the factor index goes to 419 (ie, I can see http://phuctor.nosuchlabs.com/factor/419 ) then what the hell's going on ? are there 259 or 419 factors ?

fromdeedbot: I started reding the logs here in NOV.
fromdeedbot: impressive stuff...
mircea_popescu: so then you know nobody took the bitcoin crash lulz seriously.
fromdeedbot: bitcoin "crash" or bitcoin crashing, or bot
fromdeedbot: *both
mircea_popescu: "bch". that thing where some busker in san francisco declared himself "emperor of america".
mircea_popescu: except with handpuppets and blockchains. but otherwise, same thing.
fromdeedbot: yeah too many forks not enough steak
fromdeedbot: most "tokenized" use cases are not interested in building their own chain
mircea_popescu: the only stable solution is when 50%+1 of all energy production goes to mining ; there's absolutely no space for "alternate" coins other than an expensive luxury early on.

asciilifeform: aaand mods still popping...
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform, you don't take my meaning. there can't be at the same time the case that a) "the cardinal of the set of factors is 259" and b) "419 in http://phuctor.nosuchlabs.com/factor/419 denotes the 419th factor". because if you have a 419th factor, howsoever serialized, the cardinal of the set of factors must be at least 419.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: there in fact are currently 5182 known factors.
mircea_popescu: and so the status page is way behind ?
asciilifeform: most of them however are factors of only 1 modulus.
asciilifeform: and are not reported under 'Factors Shared by Two or More Moduli' stat.
mircea_popescu: oooo i see!
asciilifeform: ( as to how we break a modulus without it sharing any factors with other known moduli: see logs re debianization )
asciilifeform: aha.
mircea_popescu: right you are ; i was missing that particular edge of braindamage from my mental model.
asciilifeform: good q tho. i was waiting for somebody to ask.
mircea_popescu: maybe time to add "factors of a single modulus" stat to stat page ?
asciilifeform: it is in the conveyor, along with 'where from?' stat in 'factor/123' page (e.g. 'debian collection', 'cisco', etc)
mircea_popescu: cool deal.
mircea_popescu: you know, last time we relocated phuctor there were significant gains. this time, even more significant.

asciilifeform: ^ d00d with large collection of debian-style 'famous p's and q's', even once showed up here and asked to get phuctor's, and he did, but somehow his collection includes ~whole keys~ rather than factors. soon i'ma feed in ~his~ collection.

asciilifeform: loox like it.
asciilifeform: ( this is unfortunately difficult to distinguish mechanically )
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i predict 0 . ( will be pleasantly surprised, perhaps.. )
asciilifeform: since the debian incident, enemy stepped up the 'NOBUS' crapola; no noar '32768 possible keys, total', instead things moar in the spirit of http://qntra.net/2016/08/rng-whitening-bug-weakened-all-versions-of-gpg
asciilifeform: ( where you apply a magictransform to the whole rfc4880 turd, to get a lattice and get the privs; or at the very least, diddled rng that gives e.g. 48 bits of possible keyspace, so nobody finds straight collision, but their asic can walk it, or the like.
mircea_popescu: hey, what other driver of progress, in republic as empire alike, can there even be.
asciilifeform: sorta ~whole point of phuctor -- to increase the minimal complexity/cost for enemy .
asciilifeform: let him do equiv of 'running in gas mask'.
mircea_popescu: indeed.
asciilifeform: and to whittle away at the nobus idiocy -- ideally we get ~regular whole-ipv4 scans, and erry time a usgtronic router vendor with fixed keys etc is discovered, list of ~live~ boxes is seen by whoever wants.
mircea_popescu: doesn't seem avoidable. Framedragger_ came and went, maybe the next one and maybe even the next after that. but eventualy it's getting settled, like everything else.
asciilifeform: it's a pretty straight mechanical job.
mircea_popescu: great intro item too.
asciilifeform: ( the correct place to do it ~from~, might even be the -- repurposed -- usg botnets, e.g. mikrotik etc. )
asciilifeform: and yes great work for n00bz.
mircea_popescu: conceivably.
BingoBoingo: I mean what else are those phree boxes there for
asciilifeform: scanning is 'embarrassingly parallel', e.g. if you have 2 places to work from , it goes 2x as fast, and so on linearly
mircea_popescu: in fact, the proper sources of tmsr hardware are, in order, a) confiscated usg hardware and b) its own iron outside the reich. that 2017 ended with 0% a and 0% b, and 2018 will likely end with 0%a and whatever%b has no bearing on this : there's always 2019, there's always uci, etcetera.
asciilifeform: for certain uses, spoils iron is the ~only iron, aha
mircea_popescu: for sexual uses.
mircea_popescu: as a general rule, if it's satisfying, it's been taken.
asciilifeform: oh, and to complete earlier snapshot picture : Known Moduli: 10347987 .
asciilifeform: these, from 16010944 submissions ( i.e. gpg keys ) of which 12284842 were Framedragger-generated.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform, in nitpicks today : if phuctor.nosuchlabs.com then also fuckgoats.nosuchlabs.com neh ?
asciilifeform: ( the rest, sks, and the tiny remainder, manual submissions. )
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: nosuchlabs.com/hardware.html , and per mircea_popescu's 2016 spec , given as there is not yet a 2nd iron product, they are idempotent

asciilifeform: ( did the lusers submit ? or shithub genned ? or how. )
mircea_popescu: possibly a mix.
mircea_popescu: understand how "yubikey" works : hitlerist website buys a boatload, extracts pub/privkeys, sends to losers.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: nominally yes, only minions; however a large qty iirc has leaked out. would be interesting to get hold of'em somehow.
mircea_popescu: this way both "security" and nobus.
asciilifeform: aha
mircea_popescu: i suppose next someone cracks open one of these fetlifes, can dump the yubikey set this way. tho... very roundabout way of ghoing about things -- could as well just list the privkeys.
asciilifeform: those aint kept around on the server end tho
asciilifeform: ( the privs, that is )
mircea_popescu: they're kept in the safe.
asciilifeform: rright, but in washington, not in whatever flea pit bought the 'yubi'
mircea_popescu: depends on size. either at yubi plant or at buyer.
mircea_popescu: generally, producer doesn't want to be stuck with them.
asciilifeform: producer does not, per the actual magic revealed in the infineon incident, have to know anything at all.
mircea_popescu: whereas fucktarded importance-seeking "investors" of customer tend to imagine this makes them less likely to sink.
asciilifeform: he gets a 'licensed' chip mask, churns out devices, ships.
asciilifeform: said mask contains 'prime constructor' with the obvious boojum intrinsic to it.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform, i meant yubi co, by producer, not whatever random chinese plant spitting these out and making the only money for the only actual economic activity involved.
asciilifeform: apples to both in equal measure.

asciilifeform: meanwhile from mircea_popescu's www, 'In my opinion the biggest red flag is that the opie intends to pay the artist by bitcoin. How many people have a bitcoin account. PayPal is a widely recognised payment method that has been around for a long time. It is legtimate, safe and easy to use. Even if the opie does not want to use PayPal what is wrong with bank transfer.' << lol!!
asciilifeform was quite certain that this species had properly died out when the usdrate grew its most recent trailing 0

mircea_popescu: yup, it's both a) the ideal medication for the sort of cold / gonorhea and b) readily available in sane lands.
mircea_popescu: that said, you should prolly still see a doctor if you actually suspect you had pneumonia ; the risk is survivant infection, gotta make sure you actually cleanse the bugs not merely reduce them to livable level.
BingoBoingo: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-05-06#1810594 << It's in the cards soon. The option to put the waiting AFTER the relief has started instead of giving the bugs more time to do their damage is nice.☝︎

mircea_popescu: well, pneumonia is still a perfect way to die, even today. so yes, immediate response is necessary an' appropriate. but bear in mind that biseptol+paracetamol is field medicine, once back in town you're really supposed to go to a hospital and have some tailored cocktail made.

esthlos: looking to cement understanding: with current V, file-level merges are impossible, but patches touching separate files can be applied sequentially. this way, it is possible, e.g., for different folx to work on separate parts of the project, and press there changes into one item.
esthlos: now let's say that the new philosophy file contains hash of all directory contents in lexographic order, onse per patch. As far as i can see, this forces the tree of vpatches to be strictly linear, since latest patch depends strictly on single previous patch
esthlos: so is this what's desired, or am I off the mark?
esthlos: *their changes
trinque: esthlos: that's incorrect, current V does not press all leaves
trinque: current V presses the patches walking upward from the "head" given as a parameter
mod6: ^
trinque: the history file is indeed the chosen solution to the problem of tree fragmentation. all patches which are intended to have permanence in the v tree shall edit that file.
trinque: this oughtn't be enforced by the V implementation. operator might fully intend to *not* include a patch in the formal history of the project
trinque: experimental patches for example.
esthlos: so I'm not talking about pressing all the leaves, but when a vpatch has multiple parents, such as h or i in http://www.mod6.net/sps2_dag.png
trinque: in current V, j had to *edit* items in both h and i to keep them in the set of pressed patches, if pressing to h
trinque: and this is appropriate. the way to solve the problem of "have to edit something in each desired antecedent" is to do that, edit something, the history file
trinque: if I haven't addressed what you're talking about though, please elaborate.
esthlos: I think I understand, though I may be being thick. what I'm describing is differnt
esthlos: if the new V defines the current state of the project as a single hash, then multiple parents (such as h, i, d, and j) becomes impossible
trinque: it doesn't, so how did you get there?
trinque: you should ignore the "history" file notion entirely; it has no bearing on how your v-tron operates
trinque: it is a fact about correct operation of a V, and perhaps a V client does something to help the operator along "hey you didn't edit the history file, wild patch!" but does absolutely nothing differently. it's just another file.
trinque: sections of a given patch will yes, be parented on the previous, in a straight line, but this does not at all mean that the patch doesn't *also* have other parents, following the antecedent lines of the other files
trinque: the graph will still look similar to the png you linked, but with a singular line also running through it
mod6: as a side-note, my vtron when doing operations and graphing checks *all* edges.
esthlos: oh, I thought the new idea was to determine parenthood based off a single line in the philosophy file. this was my interpretation of http://btcbase.org/log/2018-01-23#1774751 and http://btcbase.org/log/2018-01-23#1774760☝︎☝︎
a111: Logged on 2018-01-23 12:09 esthlos: to determine if b.vpatch descends from a.vpatch, my idea is to scan through b.vpatch and ensure that each ---(file,hash) matches some +++(file,hash) in a.vpatch. is this the standard procedure?
a111: Logged on 2018-01-23 14:28 mircea_popescu: esthlos it is not standard procedure ; the emerging consensus is to have a dedicated philosophy file which a) all patches must touch (by protocol) ; b) contains comments as to the patcher's state of mind and c) contains one line per patch uniquely identifying it, machine generated. the format's not fixed yet, but as phf is working on a new proper vdiff it's probably going to coalesce around a variant of whatever he uses.
trinque: no, not at all.
trinque: esthlos: you are misunderstanding it entirely
esthlos: hmm
trinque: parenthood is determined by the graph of patches as created by walking across the hashes *per file*
trinque: and it so happens that one is a history file.
esthlos: alright. What I don't understand, then, is mircea_popescu's response
mircea_popescu: esthlos> looking to cement understanding: with current V, file-level merges are impossible << huh ?
trinque: esthlos: if I thought you'd gone that far afield, I would've asked you to do all this instead of a simple cleanup of interfaces
trinque: please do not try to attach complexity barnacles to the history file, because it seemed very important in logs, or something.
trinque: only thing that a V would even conceivably do related to "history" is indicate in "flow" that certain patches are not mainline, for lack of a history file edit
trinque: if I tell the thing to press to a signed patch, it should press, history file edited or not.
mircea_popescu: i confess i don't understand what he understood of v. this for instance fails to parse entirely : http://btcbase.org/log/2018-05-06#1810623☝︎
a111: Logged on 2018-05-06 23:13 esthlos: if the new V defines the current state of the project as a single hash, then multiple parents (such as h, i, d, and j) becomes impossible
trinque: aha, I haven't a clue how he got to "thus can merge"
esthlos: well, this seems like https://pbs.twimg.com/media/Ct4DkT7VYAAuuzx.jpg
mircea_popescu: aanyways ; i agree with trinque in that the "history file" needs not be considered by the v implementation as anything in particular. it's a usage convention not a special case.
mircea_popescu: so yes, a correctly implemented vtron has no history file notion.
mircea_popescu: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-05-06#1810638 << which part ?☝︎
a111: Logged on 2018-05-06 23:21 esthlos: alright. What I don't understand, then, is mircea_popescu's response
ben_vulpes: esthlos: did you read mod6 or asciilifeform's v implementations before writing yours?
esthlos: ben_vulpes: no, actually that's part of what asciilifeform encouraged me to do
mircea_popescu: apparently in my naivite i bestowed upon trinque a larger dollop than originally realised.
mircea_popescu: esthlos, what sort of barbarian, orcish, utterly insane and self-spiteful approach is this, whereby you set forth to do a thing without understanding the previous iterations of the thing you're doing ?!
mircea_popescu: crossdressing, for all the social stigma, cruising highway bathrooms looking for glory holes, for all the infection potential, sitting by a wall and banging your head against it, they're dubious behaviours, yes, but this fucking takes the cake. what, you hate yourself QUITE TO THAT DEGREE ?! why ? what did you ever do to yourself to take such umbrage with yourself ?!
esthlos: mircea_popescu: what I took away from your comment was that the philosophy file was to be used to determine vpatch ancestry, rather incorrectly it seems
mircea_popescu: the idea was that it'd work passively to determine order in afore-ambiguous situations.
esthlos: and wrt self hatred, I'm really at a loss. somehow it thought like a good idea
mircea_popescu: but doesn't the sadness of solipsism strike you ? it's not hard enough to have to go to war, you'll do it naked and barefoot and hope you can find some flint to make a spear before the vietcong finds you and gangrapes you ?!
mircea_popescu: they're there to help, not to hinder, all the accumulated piles of previous materiel. or does this not seem so ?
esthlos: indeed. I am rather lonely, in general
mod6: moar forum then :]
ben_vulpes: https://www.esquire.com/news-politics/news/a28718/why-men-love-war/
mircea_popescu: well yes, but you don;'t have to be. i get it, in general everything's crap, but dja think i'd even for a second have permitted it if it were ? the stuff about, it's all stuff that somehow survived the republican demolition frenzy. it's not just random gunk.
trinque: esthlos: so at least less to change about your v-tron right? though definitely *read* the others so you're more certain you understand what the thing is.
trinque: I intentionally aimed you at "fix the interfaces" because it appeared that was the thing most glaringly wrong with it, and not all this
trinque: it'd be a happy thing if I can stay with my welder in portage's innards while this happens and not have to end up doing that part myself
esthlos: mircea_popescu: i'm at a loss of what to say. but really, it's moving
esthlos: trinque: no, I didn't jump off the deep end without discussing it. I've already made the interface changes
mircea_popescu: aite.
esthlos: let me give it a once over, sign it, and send it your way
trinque: ah neato
