asciilifeform if it wasnt clear, highly disrecommends the continued use of shiva/tscheme for anyffing trb-related

mircea_popescu: for my own needs i go with "neet who '''learned things''' from websites". there's a significant contingent of these, and they all behave the exact same way because they never were in school and so they don't have reflexivity in their toolbox. you propose to just ban the whole class ?
asciilifeform: not ban as such. but gotta have ~some~ minimal notion of hygiene to be fit even for remedial schooling.
asciilifeform: d00d is welcome to come back with new key.

asciilifeform: different matter is how many block's worth of confirm you want to wait to cover the horror with, before carrying on
mircea_popescu: ^
ben_vulpes: right
mircea_popescu: to review this : 3address bitcoin can be spent to proper 1address bitcoin by ~anyone~, at ~any time~. in practice these anyone and any time variables will be set by the miner cartel that finally pulls the plug on the 3address shitshow.
mircea_popescu: meanwhile 1address bitcoin that was in a 3address at any point can be spent by the above anyone, but not at any time. at only such a time as he's willing and capable to replace the chain with an alt chain.
mircea_popescu: leaving the will aside, this is only feasible for short time intervals.
asciilifeform: once it's been sent to a 1actualbitcoinaddr, the usual dynamics (e.g. traditional '6 conf') apply
mircea_popescu: moreover, considering the sums involved here, you can simply not gas.

mircea_popescu: penned by "fatkittyvslogic", if it wasn't directly evident.
ben_vulpes: well this is a fuckin doozy; i'm trying to get trb to cough up a transaction that spends 0.00420032 to one address, 6.65784110 to another address, and spends 0.00021850 in fees, all of which my arithmetic pad shows summing to 6.66225992 btc, but trb complains of "insufficient funds". can someone doublecheck my maffs?
mircea_popescu: !Qcalc 0.00420032+ 0.00021850+6.65784110
lobbesbot: mircea_popescu: 6.66225992
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes odds are you're either not setting the fee correctly, or else the inputs are so numerous it won't send with the fee you set.
ben_vulpes: "paytxfee" : 0.00021850,
ben_vulpes: and afaik only spending a single output
mircea_popescu: roughly speaking, fee in satoshi / 4 / (count of inputs + count of outputs ) should come over w/e value 100 or w/e it is.
ben_vulpes: next thing i'm going to try is manually walk the spend-to-self down by 100 satoshis until this trb shits a tx out and then look at what it produces
ben_vulpes: mircea_popescu: 3467 is the value i get with that algo
mircea_popescu: is this trb ?
ben_vulpes: this is trb
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes current fees per byte are more in the 50k satoshi range you're aware. it kinda jumped, https://bitinfocharts.com/comparison/bitcoin-transactionfees.html#3m
ben_vulpes: i wasn't aware that it was 50ksat/byte, no, but nevertheless trb shouldn't even be aware of that. orthogonal issue, isn't it?
mircea_popescu: that algo's per kb not per byte.
mircea_popescu: aaanyway, it's orthogonal, yes.
mod6: trb should just shit out a tx
mircea_popescu: mod6 unless he set up a minimum fee somewhere, though i don't recall how exactly that all works.
mod6: whether it gets picked up quickly or not, depends on the fee.
ben_vulpes: bitcoinfees.earn.com suggests cutoff around ~50 sat/byte, but still, orthogonal
mod6: are you trying to empty the wallet and are somehow off by a few satoshi?
mircea_popescu: if you try to send it with a lower fee than the level you set it to use it'll throw an error ; the rule for trb is to throw useless incomprehensible if not outright misguiding errors.
ben_vulpes: mod6: see that's why i asked for a spot check on the maths
mircea_popescu: anyway, it's either a) dust inputs you don't know about or b) min fee config conflict.
ben_vulpes: pretty confident that there's no dust at play, so i'll look for this min fee config
ben_vulpes: alternatively, recompile with useful need/have numbers in http://btc.yt/lxr/satoshi/source/src/bitcoinrpc.cpp?v=makefiles#0914
