decimation: heh yeah that is related
mircea_popescu: dude, la revolucion is so fucking banal. always the same moves.
mircea_popescu: decimation this is the so called stupid wife paradox. it goes like this : when she's young she thumbs her nose at submission, because hey, she's not "that kind of girl". so she finds a husband instead, spends two-three decades discovering that it's a rotten deal, then gets to live with teh regret.
mircea_popescu: youth wasted on the young and all that.
decimation: mircea_popescu: of course the french philosophes pretty much founded the 'revolutionary intellectual' archetype
mircea_popescu: depends how you count the greek sophist.
mircea_popescu: or the byzantine byzantine. or the medieval courtier.
mircea_popescu: look into the abomination of "courtly love" to see 1100ad shitgnomism en fleur.
decimation: yeah, but the french revolution is a clean presentation of the modern 'revolutionary intellectual' and the consequences if he gains power

decimation: heh yeah

The solutions that arise aren't always optimal, but th

asciilifeform: is that in the sh somewhere
trinque: mod6: no problem, chugging along in the build
mod6: no, the perl script is a separate thing that grabs the v0.5.3 base code and then patches it. then `auto.sh' pulls bdb,openssl,and boost and builds 'em and then builds the static bitcoind
mod6: for all: keep in mind if you're not running the test on a x64 machine, you'll probably have to edit the vars on lines 4, 6 & 8
asciilifeform: neh it is
decimation: interesting, it seems that it works just fine on amazon linux
decimation: so it's not a gpg2 thing
mod6: ok so your amazon linux is running gpg v 1.4.10?
decimation: no 2.0.25
asciilifeform: built deps, croaked on not finding bitcoin src
danielpbarron: oh uh.. i'm not running on a x64 machine (if that means bits in processor)
asciilifeform: why are these separate scripts again ?
mod6: danielpbarron: yeah, that'll be a problem. what os/arch are you on?
mod6: asciilifeform: because how we'll roll out the release: 1) I'll patch the source myself and put it in a 'bitcoin' directory 2) i'll place the 'auto.sh' in the same parent directory as 'bitcoin' directory 3) tar those up 4) end user will unpack archive and execute `auto.sh'
danielpbarron: gentoo i386
mod6: so in the end the downloading/patching of the v0.5.3 base code won't be necessary since it'll already be complete.
mod6: danielpbarron: ok, change line 4 to: "32", line 6 to: "x86_32" and line 8 to: "linux-x86_32"
mod6: and cross fingers
mod6: i've never tested this on 32bit so this is a first.

danielpbarron: of what, auto.sh ? I hadn't even gotten that far yet
mod6: while you're at it danielpbarron comment out line 130 of "auto.sh" so I can have you run one other command if you get through the static build.
mod6: (130 = "strip" command)
mod6: sorry, yes.
mod6 is slow.
decimation: trinque: no that didn't work
danielpbarron: no sorry i'm just distracted by the 3d gun guy trying to impress me on twitter
mod6: at the end of the static build there are 2 ugly warnings, but they're just warnings. so no worries.

decimation: apparently centos doesn't come with a static libdl or libm
danielpbarron: it might be the thing i ran into last time i tried this
asciilifeform: why dl again
asciilifeform: zap it & say what dies
decimation: it puked without it

decimation: how did you get yours working asciilifeform?
mod6: which works, because those are just warnings. it does output a bitcoind in the bitcoin/src dir
decimation: mod6: try modding the openssl 'configure' stuff to use 'no-dso'

mod6: here's a full shot: http://dpaste.com/06NAYCD

asciilifeform: i suggest fixing by using a pre-heartbleed openssl
asciilifeform: if anyone has any reason why this is a bad idea, please suggest it
mod6: pre-heart bleed? like 0.9.8o or whatever?
asciilifeform: pre-1.0.1 iirc
decimation: not that heartbleed really matters for our purposes
decimation: or have we not snipped the rpc stuff yet
asciilifeform: it doesn't, if the https-snipper patch was merged.
mod6: well, it was 0.9.8o that was giving us the issues with the tx in the 168`001 block
asciilifeform: rpc is still in
asciilifeform: but i personally ripped out https
asciilifeform: mod6: did anyone ever fully crack the conundrum ?
decimation: yeah if you are commanding bitcoind on an untrusted network you are fucktarded
mod6: no, not yet. i've been focused on just getting a release out.
asciilifeform: could find boojum therein, one wholly worth the effort
mod6: yeah certainly.
danielpbarron: mod6> danielpbarron: oh you're running this on ARM? this won't build on arm probably. << ahh you called it the "modified pogo script" which gave me the wrong impression.. but I understand what you meant now
mod6: ahh, my bad. sorry I didn't clairify
mod6: decimation: so no-dso gets passed to the openssl build?
decimation: yeah you put it on the Config arg line
mod6: ok, sweet, i'll give that a try now.
asciilifeform still suspects that: 168001 was a stealthfork
mod6: building...

decimation: ok I have to dynamically link -l m and now it works without -l dl
decimation: at least, it starts
mod6: alright gents, i added 'no-dso' to the openssl configure and removed "- dl" from the makefile, and it compiled just fine:
mod6: http://dpaste.com/1HYJCGS
assbot: dpaste: 1HYJCGS ... ( http://bit.ly/1AgZMnQ )
decimation: me too
mod6: you had to add in
decimation: except for the dynamic -l m and pthread_nonshared
mod6: "-l m" ?
decimation: yep
decimation: it must be a redhat-ism
mod6: ah. ok.
mod6: well, that's good to know i guess in case of RH
mod6: so i'll re-submit that makefile patch and what will be v0.0.5 of the mod'd pogo script (with 'no-dso')
asciilifeform: neato
asciilifeform: builds, but does it run ?
decimation: ok you have to install glib-static on redhat
mod6: that bitcoind does run and start pulling blocks btw too
asciilifeform: aha!
asciilifeform: so this, then, is the new state of the art.

mod6: this was highly productive tonight; I thank you all who helped!
decimation: no problem, good night
mod6: still have a moutain of work ahead, but we're on a good track.
decimation: ok so the only remaining redhatism is to strip out the 'realpath' thing and add '-l pthread_nonshared to the makefile
mod6: you too. many thanks.
mod6: decimation: i think, in interest of time.. perhaps (with your help/testing) we'll post a patch for the makefile & the auto.sh post release.
mod6: or at least once we have a "freeze"
mod6: then going forward, we'll add in more conditions into these things to account for various platforms/configurations

Adlai: there are so few situations where it's remotely helpful to have an assault rifle in full auto, afaict the risk of accidentally using full auto in any other situation make it "wasach" but nothing more
Adlai: "wasach" = army slang, from arabic 'weight' - ie, extra weight which doesn't help you, but you carry it around to look tough
mircea_popescu: those situations being providing cover

Adlai: a bit of training and you can give MUCH better cover with *aimed* selective fire
mircea_popescu: depends if it's five of you or five hundred of you.
mircea_popescu: with batallion size deployments rolling auto is much more effectual than "selective" whatever, because people are weird. sorta like how women living together synch periods, soldiers end up all looking in the same spot.
Adlai: you can drain a 30 round magazine in ~10 seconds and get most of your shots on target, and all of them in the right direction; or drain it in ~3 seconds, overheat your barrel, and kill half your friends
Adlai: there are situations where "spraying" is exactly what you want, but there are better tools for that than 'assault rifle'
mircea_popescu agrees that in practical terms, the useful full auto is a shrinking space.
Adlai: on the contrary, there's a lot less picking off enemies hundreds of meters away, and a lot more 'clearing rooms'

mircea_popescu: "but brother, why do you try to rescue cost savings ? you know it;s in its nature to sting you". "yes. but it is in my nature to be stingy."

mircea_popescu: danielpbarron ahem. through what sort of magic the parts summed exceed the sum ?
danielpbarron: 750 BTC today will be on both chains post-fork
mircea_popescu: right.
danielpbarron: so someone pays you 750 BTC today, which turns into 750 BTC and 750 GSC (gavinscamcoin) later, and you just need to buy another 250 GSC to settle the deal
mircea_popescu: or in other words, they make 250 gsc for no risk, if they believe this theory whereby "people" will "update" to gavincoin on gavin's say so.
thestringpuller: danielpbarron: that assumes this 750 BTC is prefork.
danielpbarron: right, it's still a "good deal" to those who are so sure the fork will be a hit; i'm just trying to figure out how "good a deal" it is
danielpbarron: so it's kinda like they are trading 750 BTC for 250 GSC, no?
danielpbarron: where BTC is this "stilly worthless thing" to them
mike_c: danielpbarron: you need to be 75% confident to break even
mike_c: if you are > than that confident in gavincoin, it's a good deal
mike_c: i can do the math for you if it's helpful
danielpbarron: I think I got it now. I was hung up on my own bias against GSC

davout: either way, it can't really work now, there can't really be a contract that defines what a gavincoin is before the guy actually commits some code
danielpbarron: it can't really work now because anyone dumb enough to want to make the deal doesn't actually have enough money for it to be worthwhile

davout: there are plenty of people dumb enough to take the deal that also happen to have >1k
davout: it's not possible, because defining gavincoin as "everything that is not bitcoin" just doesn't work
danielpbarron: i'd define it the way they do: a fork of bitcoin that gets 80% consensus from miners (or 75% or 95%, whatever magic number they want)
davout: what if it's like a emergency bugfix harfork? or any kind of non-braindamaged hardfork we actually agree with?
davout: because the contract also has to have an expiration, in case the hardfork never actually happens
asciilifeform: 80% << obligatory >> 'We use the term "thieves" if the number of men does not exceed seven, "band of marauders" [or "war-band"] for a number between seven and thirty-five. Anything beyond this is an "army".'

mircea_popescu: First, the money has to be taken by force from the wealthy. Voluntary contributions don't count. Taxation at a level that the wealthy will consent to doesn't count. Any approach that recognizes the wealthy as having rights is unsatisfactory. Even worse is any recognition of philanthropy and the idea that some of the wealthy have social consciences.
mircea_popescu: Second, the programs can only address needs defined by the intellectual elite. We won't provide cheaper cars; we'll force people to use mass transit. One volunteer aid group once did a study of Third World needs, concluded that one of the most pressing needs in Third World countries was transportation, then excluded automobiles from consideration because they felt that automobiles had a negative effect.
