BingoBoingo: I expect to get a letter in the mail next week about the outage getting rescheduled por el calor

mircea_popescu just put to oven a duck! on cabbage!
diana_coman: awww, did the duckling see it?
mircea_popescu: yes actually.
diana_coman: trauma!!
mircea_popescu: it seems to think the whole hullaballoo was for it!
mircea_popescu: "oh, these big ducks, fixing me the best worm yet!!"
mircea_popescu: re http://ossasepia.com/2018/11/22/smg-comms-chapter-9-files-transfers-and-requests/#selection-41.799-41.846 diana_coman you know we ~could~ do this. "all filenames are 32 characters long followed by a dot and 3 character extension". what's to keep us, filenames only exist as server declares them anyway.
deedbot: http://bimbo.club/?p=86 << Bimbo.Club - Hold up, you wont understand.
mircea_popescu: in other related matters : i'm authorizing her to add a patch on s.mg crypto lib, to permit arbitrary size e. i recall the threads at the time, but there's a ~really~ good reason to do it : we don't want to pass back and forth kbs worth of exponents. udp packets are small, and there's all the complicated matchwork of sizes meeting keys etc.
diana_coman: mircea_popescu, fixed-length strings get rid of all sorts of ugh pretty much everywhere; this being said, I can't quite tell what we need as filenames and recall that they include the path - I think that's the main reason why it will still be variable
mircea_popescu: fuck.
mircea_popescu: DAMN YOU UNIX
mircea_popescu: diana_coman i am tempted to ditch paths.
diana_coman: I can certainly see the temptation; I'd say there is still time to chew on this, as it's not yet burning
mircea_popescu: the data is structured anyway for the program, there's no absolute requirement to ship it with storage adnotations.
mircea_popescu: of course, no paths means there's a 16k limit or so on files or w/e nonsense it was ...
mircea_popescu: incidentally, to continue the related thread of http://btcbase.org/log/2018-11-16#1872694 -- what is the difference between ./a/b/file.txt and /ab/file.txt ? RIGHT ? ☝︎
a111: Logged on 2018-11-16 00:27 mircea_popescu: who THE FUCK thought it's ok for the fs to not take arbitrary indices, like, ever, in the whole thirty seconds history of sitting-here-quietly-and-thinking-abnout-computers as it stretches from 1971 onwards.
