mircea_popescu: trinque i think you have to do it ; reverse auction still not there.
mod6: trinque: yeah, not sure how that'd work. i'd like to see more price points. but if we can't receive dollars bought, then I dunno.
mod6: right now I'm working on buying some dollars and wires in place. but I don't have a price point yet.
mod6: as soon as I have one, I'll be sending out the invoices immediately.
mod6: We could do some sort of open outcry auction in here. Where Pizarro auctions off 1 BTC, and the winner send funds to specified destinations.
mircea_popescu: mod6 that part is what does not work, lobbesbot not yet capable of http://btcbase.org/log/2018-07-09#1833029☝︎
a111: Logged on 2018-07-09 22:25 mircea_popescu: the correct solution is to distinguish selling and buying auctions. change the "A#285" lede into either "B#285" or "S#285" and then if it's a S have it work as it works now, but if it's a B have it work ~reverse~, so smaller bids overbid larger bids.
mircea_popescu: instead ~he~ gotta auction the fiatola.
mod6: right.

lobbes: and now I can get ass back in year on auctionbot
lobbes: *gear
mod6: i'm just saying, doing it 'botless'. like I say, "this auction is open for 72 hours, closes on X date at X time. Selling 1 BTC for USD. Winner of auction sends whatever wires seller specifies."
mod6: people just bid by saying what their bid is in #trilema.
mircea_popescu: ah
mircea_popescu: you really got it in for maximizing administration etc, huh ?
mod6: lol. I'd rather not do it that way. I'd love to use the bot, but sometimes gotta do things by hand when we don't have the tools.
mod6: I guess, either that, or we just wait until lobbes is ready.
mircea_popescu: yes, and that's fine, however a "by hand" approximation of bot function is nutty. doing flight "by hand" means flapping wings like birds, not trying to fart hot gasses like jet engine. sewing by hand means, with needle, not trying to do sewing machine. and dealing by hand dun mean "let's make noises like an auction bot by moving fingers on kbd", just talk to whoever set it up without the formalism.
mircea_popescu: alternatively, he can just auction whatever chunk of fiatola he wants to dispense with.
mod6: ah, i see, so for instance trinque could say, "selling 4000 USD for ECU", exactly like yourself with the last one
mod6: that'd be fine as long as usd can be wired.
mircea_popescu: right ?
mod6: yup, totally.
trinque: what was the problem y'all had with receiving?

mod6: aha skulduggery
trinque: *WU rather
mod6: we should ask him, I'm under the impression that doing stable wires to his bank actually shows "stability" and helps with his residency or whatever.
mod6: the DC needs a wire direct tho.

mod6: BingoBoingo: do you have a preference re wire or WU (see above)
mircea_popescu: trinque it'd prolly be a good idea to get wires going as a "freedom of navigation" exercise.

asciilifeform: ( tho i expect that if i ever do, it will more than pay back for the lack of any to date, and take the form of cork-lined cellar )
mircea_popescu: mod6 could it be maybe time to repatriate mailing list into mpwp format ? i mean, is there any advantage to sticking to email process ?
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: link preservation
mircea_popescu: can always declare arbitrary links for mpwp redirection.
asciilifeform: theoretically yes
asciilifeform: how would submit work in a mpwp ?
asciilifeform: ye olde ml, took anyffing from l1, automagically, with jurov's clever script
mircea_popescu: for one thing, mpwp admits post-by-email, which'd be 100% replication of that state of the art, w/o any clever scripts
mircea_popescu: otherwise, can have comments, can have users made for anyone,
mircea_popescu: it's flexible.
asciilifeform: tests pgp detached sigs, attachments, all exists in mpwp already ?
mircea_popescu: nah, sig test would have to be added.
asciilifeform: i confess that i actually am fond of the ancient ml format. no stylesheets, no buttons, just 80col text.
asciilifeform: ( if posting via email worked, would be heaven.. )
mircea_popescu: but it means keeping email in republican process. this is something you actually want ?
asciilifeform: nah email dead
asciilifeform: hence 'if only'
asciilifeform: ( recall, i was never able to use the email knob on jurov's box reliably at all, but instead use www intake hopper )
mircea_popescu: well, is it worth our while to maintain two publishing mechanisms ?
asciilifeform: depends on how much maintenance it takes, neh
mircea_popescu: which is why i never mentioned b4.
asciilifeform: if it worx for aeons without opening hood -- worth
mircea_popescu: nobody really opens hoods of working machinery.
asciilifeform: seems like jurov had sad isp, naught to do with mltron per se
asciilifeform: ( if i'm mistaken , jurov , plox to correct )
mircea_popescu: how's ml verifier work, gpg shell callout ?
asciilifeform: pretty sure nobody has any other gpg eater than callout to koch
mircea_popescu: hanbot feel like implementing a sig verifier in php ? :D
asciilifeform: ( phuctor is only exception i know of , but not general purpose )
mircea_popescu: does it python ?
asciilifeform: jurov's ? no idea, let's ask him
mircea_popescu: phuctor's.
asciilifeform: aa it - yes, old rfc2440 eater in py
asciilifeform: whole reason i ended up baking the www end in py
mircea_popescu: apparently php also has prewritten something. http://php.net/manual/en/function.gnupg-verify.php
asciilifeform: loox like callout to gpg
mircea_popescu: well, "pecl" w/e that is
asciilifeform: http://php.net/manual/en/function.gnupg-init.php << to gpg
asciilifeform: unsurprisingly
mircea_popescu: pecl = "php extensions", basically looks like some sort of fancy callout system. and yes, here to gpgme
mircea_popescu: though honestly, none of that's needed to check a sig.
asciilifeform: i dun know of a rcf2440 eater & rsatron in php, tho certainly could be made
asciilifeform: ( rather 'malbolge' exercise tho imho )
mircea_popescu: why ?
asciilifeform: cuz php, lol
mircea_popescu: yeah, i'm not sure why i'd want automated sig verification in this context.
asciilifeform: well, it dispenses with the pretense of 'www login state' which imho is a win.
mircea_popescu: hm
asciilifeform: i stole whole idea, when pushing jurov to do it, from mpex, lol
hanbot: mircea_popescu i'd be happy to try, though i doubt i could deliver in the rightnao sorta timeframe lack of ml suggests.
mircea_popescu is thinking about it, could have muchly simplified mpwp, whereby if i sign it it's an article, if you sign it it's a comment, you can even have a golden border
mircea_popescu: if no one signs it it's an anon comment... goes to modqueue...
asciilifeform: aha, that'd rock
mircea_popescu: take email out ALTOGETHER.
asciilifeform: i tried to write one of these
mircea_popescu: the problem is though... things like pics. wtf i'd do about those ?
asciilifeform: uuencod!111
mircea_popescu: and it guesses format ?
asciilifeform: png or gohome..
mircea_popescu: i use jpg all the time, for excellent reasons.
mircea_popescu: trilema would have to waste >10GB of disk if i switched to png
asciilifeform: then jpg or gohome
asciilifeform: but pick 1 and live with it, why not
mircea_popescu: yes but i use png SOMETIMES (neat coplors, like screen captures, jpg fucks up)
asciilifeform: hm
mircea_popescu: it is an open problem for me ;/
asciilifeform: they have header, so why is this even megaproblem
mircea_popescu: im not sure it's megaproblem yet.
asciilifeform: parse header and pass to correct eater.
mircea_popescu: i'm also not sure if i want to make you use signer every time you leave a ocmment.
asciilifeform: this is where i left it
mircea_popescu: the "secret string" of email seems sufficient./
asciilifeform: i like the idea of eternal 0effort spam genocide tho.
mircea_popescu: mpwp dun have much problem with spam anyways.
mircea_popescu: the "no web login" was interesting, but hm.
asciilifeform: it only has no prob because current crop of spammers dumb as rock.
mircea_popescu: i doubt it.
asciilifeform: large pool of bots could still fill mod queue with megatonne of liquishit.
mircea_popescu: nope. experimentally verified, over decade+ of functioning, during which more "large pool of bots" than anyone's lived springs.
asciilifeform: having not yet read mpwp, i cannot say further
mircea_popescu: hanbot how many items did you have to call spam/ham since running it ?
mircea_popescu: looks like i clicked "spam" 11 times this month.
hanbot: ~500. ~2 yrs.
mircea_popescu: meanwhile current count is 126582 ; last month ended at 125355. so it accepted 154, auto-tagged 62, asked about 11 and rejected...
mircea_popescu: 62022
mircea_popescu: well... at LEAST 62k, there's some classes of rejects i can't count.
mircea_popescu: ah, figures further mucked up by a manually deleted mocky comment, i recall.
mircea_popescu: nothing's ever exact ;/
mod6: <+asciilifeform> i confess that i actually am fond of the ancient ml format. no stylesheets, no buttons, just 80col text. << i've grown pretty fond of it too.
mod6: we'll have to see what jurov says, but yeah, I think it's an isp related issue.
mod6: mircea_popescu's idea of a very stripped down wpmp might be pretty interesting with "signed aritcle" or "signed comment".

mircea_popescu: ~ottoman lemonade, i'd guess. certainly the driver of the anglo habit.
asciilifeform: unrelatedly, lulzy phuctor thread in phuctor castle today, http://logs.bvulpes.com/asciilifeform?d=2018-9-1#422638
mimisbrunnr: Logged on 2018-09-01 17:04 kristof: Can anyone tell me about how many broken keys phuctor has found?
mircea_popescu: dude can't read stats page or ?
asciilifeform: i have nfi. evidently

mimisbrunnr: Logged on 2018-09-01 17:24 kristof: am I wrong to think that, you know, a responsible journalistic community would pick up on this, and the security community would henceforth start a widespread auditing effort of existing toolchains, right?

asciilifeform: !!up kristof
deedbot: kristof voiced for 30 minutes.
mircea_popescu: (for the naive log reader wondering "what's with all the rhodesia references", http://trilema.com/2013/a-very-unfair-perspective/#selection-193.0-193.108 )
asciilifeform: i can entirely see the 'pocket of sanity besieged by pantsuit t-cells' angle
asciilifeform: serbia moar recent example than rhodesia
kristof: 30 minutes, only? They give me a whole hour at the brothels.
asciilifeform: lol
asciilifeform: kristof: if you register with deedbot, can self-voice, i'll rate you
asciilifeform: !!help
deedbot: http://deedbot.org/help.html
kristof: Some other time
kristof: I'm busy at the moment
mircea_popescu: !!down kristof
asciilifeform: somehow they all do this.
mircea_popescu: cuz their stupid mothers told them they're important and matter.
asciilifeform: illusion of fleadom (tm)
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform and as irony has it, i supported serbia, also (though entirely for "selfish" reasons, at least if you asked 90s me)
asciilifeform: selfish how ? great satan bombed mircea_popescu's castle there ?
mircea_popescu: ah, gasoline was worth serious dough.
asciilifeform: a

asciilifeform: complete with that little platform for sultan
mircea_popescu: in unrelated news : minigame was going to work both an infinite-items and an infinite-lands update ; they kinda need the new client protocol (mostly to do on-demand content delivery) ; which is waiting for... cuntoo!
mircea_popescu: how you doin' trinque ?
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: how's the beta-cuntoo box working out , btw ?
asciilifeform: ( afaik the only missing piece in the beta, is the cuntooistic 'portage' )
diana_coman: asciilifeform, so far it worked good!
asciilifeform: neato
asciilifeform: iirc BingoBoingo has taken delivery of the samsung disks, so the box can be expanded to full size when mircea_popescu & diana_coman give the signal
asciilifeform: ( possibly waiting for release-cuntoo ? )
mircea_popescu: well yes, i thought it wise.
BingoBoingo: Indeed drives are waiting in the bilge for instructions

deedbot: asciilifeform rated kristof 1 << new blood, tentatively
kristof: Success.
asciilifeform: wilkommen, kristof
asciilifeform: kristof: tell us a bit about yourself ?
kristof: grazie
kristof: I'm not worth knowing. Just an inquisitive dilettante.
kristof: Actually, as I mentioned before, I've been a long time reader of your polemics.
asciilifeform: kristof: you will prolly want to read the logs, http://btcbase.org/log/ , chances are you will find something of interest.
kristof: I like logs, I might browse them.
asciilifeform: kristof: most n00bs read logs for a while before they find that they have something to say.
kristof: I don't intend to be chatty, but I might in the future. Hopefully that doesn't sound like squatting to you.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: seems like fella was a longtime lurker at my www.
kristof: The only reason I was in #asciilifeform today was that I finally read all the phuctor phun in its entirety (yes, I was being a bonehad and didn't read the stats, sorry MP), thought "wait, that happened?" and dropped by.
asciilifeform: kristof: you will find a large cache of 'wait, that happened' material in the #t logs.
kristof: Delightful.
asciilifeform: kristof: if your main news intake was yc or some other heathen pit, it will be quite new to you.
kristof: Oh, actually, while I have your attention, I thought I would mention that I did check out Urbit twice; the first was a few years ago back when they were still "ship", the second was maybe a year ago and that time I actually chatted a bit with those folks
asciilifeform: !#s urbit
a111: 280 results for "urbit", http://btcbase.org/log-search?q=urbit
asciilifeform: ^ quite detailed discussion.
kristof: I won't even bother because I have no faith in those people at all.
mircea_popescu: where's your article about when you sold your starship or what was it ?
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: http://www.loper-os.org/?p=1390
mircea_popescu: thjere we go.
asciilifeform: or, for the dedicated entomologist, full cycle : http://www.loper-os.org/?p=103 -> http://www.loper-os.org/?p=130 -> http://www.loper-os.org/?p=1309 -> http://www.loper-os.org/?p=1352 -> http://www.loper-os.org/?p=1361 -> http://www.loper-os.org/?p=1390 .
kristof: The idea of a federated system of secure, persistent identity (where people are friendly until proven otherwise) is such a fantastic idea and they waste all of their time on a half baked walled garden.
mircea_popescu: kristof welcome to... 2014. http://trilema.com/2014/what-the-wot-is-for-how-it-works-and-how-to-use-it/
kristof: Gulp
mircea_popescu: and yes, it developed. today you could've witnessed a guy going to qatar of all places, on the basis of exactly that system of secure & persistent pseudonimity.
kristof: Neat. I'm reading your "Most Serene Republic" quasi-manifesto now.
mircea_popescu: there's plenty to read, you won't soon run out.
asciilifeform: re old posts, my http://www.loper-os.org/?p=1352&cpage=1#comment-8427 prediction seems to have lived out.
mircea_popescu: meanwhile in asciilifeform files : trump suspended joint exercises with south korea last month
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i saw, was announced to great pantsuit mooing
mircea_popescu: ah. i guess im slow.
mircea_popescu: anywya, the trump-kim pics are pretty epic.
mircea_popescu: us presidents make astonishing gimp bitches, don't they!
asciilifeform: in other noose, i have what appears to be a cured c101pa.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu phf ^ et al
BingoBoingo: Oh my!
mircea_popescu: o hey!
mircea_popescu: what did it ?
asciilifeform: vendor backdoor in fw 3.9
asciilifeform: it still needs some massage, for cure to persist across powercycle
asciilifeform: and i'ma need a payload...
mircea_popescu: cuntoo ? :D
mod6: cool asciilifeform
asciilifeform: i mean, replacement payload for the fritz
mircea_popescu is looking forward to buying some of these lappies then!
asciilifeform: to properly perma-neuter
asciilifeform: but theoretically i have 'testlab mode' going
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform conceivably just use key of buyer ?
asciilifeform: conceivably
mircea_popescu: if "just wipe it" dun werk
asciilifeform: i gotta actually see that it writes 'mis-signed' fw, next
mircea_popescu: what a day.
asciilifeform bbl
BingoBoingo: And there's still no confirmation on whether Terry Davis lives or dies
lobbes: question for the V experts out there: I was test pressing a vpatch genesis I created and ran into an odd barf ('Pressed file hash did not match expected!') >> http://p.bvulpes.com/pastes/A5d1u/?raw=true
lobbes: odd thing is, everything seems to have pressed fine. And when I manually run sha512sum on the problem file the hash matches what V was expecting >> http://p.bvulpes.com/pastes/SnHoK/?raw=true
lobbes: Is there something I'm missing? I pressed using mod6's V and created the vpatch using the "classic" vdiff described in http://cascadianhacker.com/07_v-tronics-101-a-gentle-introduction-to-the-most-serene-republic-of-bitcoins-cryptographically-backed-version-control-system
