ben_vulpes: pete_dushenski: you'd know better than i about the test drive. that's just how i got my butt in one.
pete_dushenski: ah neato
pete_dushenski: what you think of it ? worth 80-100k bezzlars ?
cazalla: 100k for a car is such extravagance!
pete_dushenski: it's a fancy trabant, what.
pete_dushenski: you can't tell me 100k isn't the same as a 7 year waiting list
cazalla: don't get me wrong, some of these cars in that price range do look nice but i cannot imagine putting the cash down for it let alone taking a loan
pete_dushenski: meh it's all relative.
ben_vulpes: trabamborghini
pete_dushenski: if you're pulling in 3-4x the price of your car, it's no sweat.
pete_dushenski: ben_vulpes: the one and only.
ben_vulpes: my philosophy on cars is a little odd
ben_vulpes: instead of spending 75k on a car, how about we get 75k worth of...cars?
pete_dushenski: have a whole fleet ! the choices !
ben_vulpes: a sedan, a truck, a gas-guzzling roadster, a mommymobile, a camperwagon...
pete_dushenski: actually this isn't a bad game : name all the cars you'd buy with $75k cash. go !
ben_vulpes: buy them pre-depreciated, and treat them like the capital equipment they are.
pete_dushenski: naturally.
ben_vulpes: anyways, the drivetrain is incorrect. yes, electrical drive is fantastic for the low-end torque, but regen brakes of engineering necessity must clamp down insanely hard in order to maximize current out of the machines. ☟︎
ben_vulpes: this makes it difficult to finesse the brake.
ben_vulpes: but to return to the drivetrain: if you *insist* on an eletrical drivetrain, look to the Volt for the correct implementation.

decimation: the volt was a good idea - except for its price
pete_dushenski: it was a bit dear.
decimation: anywyay pete going to your point last night, I think that's why uk 'top gear' was so popular
decimation: they had the balls to call most of the cars they drove 'crap'
pete_dushenski: that's certainly why i enjoyed tg and i was hardly alone
pete_dushenski: starting out, i modelled by writing on clarkson's
pete_dushenski: who is not only an entertaining presenter but a wicked wordsmith
decimation: he's a showman, no doubt
decimation: that's why the other top gears didn't really work, clarkson made the show
pete_dushenski: totally.
decimation: it's a real shame the whole thing ended the way it did - clarkson being sacked for hitting the incompetent servants
pete_dushenski: looking up prices for porsche 964/993 generation of 911 for '$75 dream garage' and i cannot motherfucking believe how inflated their prices have become in the last 5 years
pete_dushenski: easily 2-2.5x 2010 prices. easily. ☟︎
decimation: yeah, it's the case for all the 'billionare toys'
pete_dushenski: i almost bought a black japanese import '89 964 in 2010 for ~25k. it would readily command 60k today from what i'm seeing on ebay and autotrader.
pete_dushenski: unbefuckinglievable.
decimation: is it because porsche has 'moved on' to a new design?
pete_dushenski: i'd say so.

decimation: lol I didn't realize the old ones were air cooled
pete_dushenski: up until '98
decimation: my dad told me that his dad used to have an air-cooled vw beetle back in the day
decimation: it sucked because there was no cabin heat; they weren't allowed to breathe
decimation: some of the later beetles had a 'gasoline heater' kit ☟︎
pete_dushenski: lol i was driven to kindergarten in a '71 beetle that was exactly like this.
pete_dushenski: in -30C canadian winters, no less.
cazalla: pete_dushenski, ya got dat dere momo steering wheel bro?

cazalla: decimation, yeah, probably another 4 weeks or so until i can eat em
decimation: you plant them in autumn?
decimation: I love brussel sprouts, I'm not sure it's worth growing them. I guess they are easy to freeze
cazalla: i planted them mid march from memory and yeah, i am not sure it is worth growing them either given limited space.. take a while
cazalla: plus i lose half my gardening area to shade in the winter here.. shitty houses built close together which block out the sun
mod6: i've got 22 tomato plants, 8 pepper plants and 4 cucumbers. tomatoes are starting to ripen...
cazalla: i've got about 20 fava beans, 10 sprouts, bunch of spring onions, rocket and english spinach and i just put some more radish in which should be ready to be pulled once spring arrives

mod6: wtf
mod6: oh hmm, for some reason, i don't understand this (maybe someone can look at my patch and tell me why??) but apparently not only were the .gitignore files removed, but the directories were too.
mod6: lol. own patch rejected.
decimation: !up hazirafel
mod6: so yah, looks like the patch blows away the obj/nogui dir along with the .gitignore file (it's the only file in the dir at the time - a clue maybe?) but if replaced, the compiles fine.
mod6: does anyone see a reason to keep src/obj-test and src/obj/test ?
mod6: i think those can actually go away, but src/obj/nogui/ needs to stay.
mod6: will resubmit.
mod6: after an actual test.
mod6: i guess src/obj-test needs to stay because of the test stubs & it's ref'd in the makefile. that's fine.

assbot: Logged on 19-07-2015 11:37:45; punkman: fwiw, I've read the patches and it all seems good. I only have reservations about the 2 orphanage burning patches
asciilifeform: i've been waiting to hear somebody describe ~some~, even very theoretical, down side for those ☟︎
mod6: So this can be used as a test platform for all the patches, etc. . If you're really ambitious you can install gentoo as above ^^ then use this to pull down the v0.5.3.1 basecode and apply these patches: http://dpaste.com/23VKWD8.txt
assbot: ... ( http://bit.ly/1CQdaWK )
mod6: But you'll still have to create your own distfiles + ourlibs then drop in ssl/bdb/boost into distfiles. then pull down stator and build.
mod6: so yeah this is annoying with `patch`. if you do `patch -p1 --posix < rm_gitignore.patch` it doesn't remove the dirs /or/ the files, just leaves 'em truncated. which is dumb too.
mod6: i searched lastnight for a looong time to find anything to tell patch to no prune empty directories, but it doesnt seem like an available option.
mod6: s/no/not/
asciilifeform: mod6: iirc patch cannot remove dirs. which is why i wrote 'chicken' the way i did
asciilifeform: this is all in the logz.
mod6: it does remove dirs.
asciilifeform: hm
mod6: check out `man 1 patch` -E
asciilifeform: ah i recall
asciilifeform: it removes files by shitting out the whole file as a minus sign delta
asciilifeform: which pissed me off
asciilifeform: (what kind of imbecile thought that this was appropriate ?!)
mod6: yeah, it basically zero's out the file, and then it seems to remove the file with -N (diff) and if there is nothing left in the directory, it zaps that as well.
mod6: lol, yeah it's obnoxious. and i think the only way to solve this is to remove them by hand.
mod6: but now I'm scared that even if i /do/ remove them by hand, they might get accidentially pruned by a downstream patch (later in time) causing the makefile to puke. ☟︎☟︎
asciilifeform: wai wat
asciilifeform: i'm still not entirely grasping how all of this came about
mod6: ben reminded me to add a patch that removes the 5 .gitignore files. seems easy enough, so crated a quick patch, attempted to apply, worked fine -- I didn't notice that it blew away the directories as well though. : obj/test obj/nogui obj-test
asciilifeform: possibly ought to be a shell script rather than patch.
mod6: here's the patch: http://therealbitcoin.org/ml/btc-dev/2015-July/000125.html
assbot: [BTC-dev] Remove .gitignore files from Reference Implementationcodebase ... ( http://bit.ly/1TKIBX1 )
asciilifeform: unix patch util is diagnosably retarded, we knew this
mod6: yah, and when applied `patch` ends up removing the dirs along with the .gitignore files because it renderes those directories empty.
mod6: lol, it's trying to be helpful.
mod6: "why would you want an empty directory!"
mod6: smh
mod6: so... yah, a bash script or removal by hand. would be fine i'd think. but now i gotta test it a bit harder. if we leave empty directories in there, im worred that patch might come along at a later time and be helpful again, removing those object output diretories.
mod6: unless our solution is to add .keep files in there, which i think kinda sucks.
mod6: if i want an empty dir, i should be able to have an empty dir
mod6: anyway i'll work on it. just don't use the rm_gitignore patch.

mod6: i might just be dumb. build a test env with http://dpaste.com/23VKWD8.txt and see if anyone can get the rm_gitignore.patch file to apply without removing the obj/test obj/nogui or obj-test dirrs
assbot: ... ( http://bit.ly/1TKJCy8 )
mod6: well, thats weird. it seems to remove obj/test and obj/nogui, but NOT obj-test which is left empty?!!?
mod6: now im really confused.
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 36050 @ 0.00055166 = 19.8873 BTC [-] {2}
mod6: the only thing in the obj-test directory before applying that patch is '.gitignore' so why wouldn't it be removed like obj/test and obj/nogui?
mod6: maybe the best option is to add a one line shell script that just does: `find . -name ".gitignore" -exec rm '{}' \;`
mod6: that'll leave the dirs in place

decimation: you could put a packet counter pretty easily
decimation: automation could talk & update router regularly
decimation: no sigs, just ips
asciilifeform: a stateful solution is ipso facto a wrong solution.
jurov: everyone does spoofed ips
decimation: now, the scammer could discover a 'credited ip' and run down its account
asciilifeform: ^ and for other reasons.
asciilifeform: or no route.
decimation: asciilifeform: well, I agree with that too
asciilifeform: at all levels, too.
decimation: but remember how it was rejected as being 'too friendly to third parties'
asciilifeform: this is also why every packet is rsa-encrypted to the destination's pubkey.
jurov: asciilifeform: how would that cheap 1e6/sec sig verificating router look?
asciilifeform: jurov: asic
decimation: jurov: yeah it would need to be done in custom logic
decimation: jurov: to be fair, cisco does the same thing (custom logic in router)
jurov: of course, but cisco just moves bits and does not do crypto ☟︎
asciilifeform: the heroic bandwidths are, imho, unnecessary - the only thing it needs to do extremely quickly is to reject enemy garbage

decimation: for webpages anyway

asciilifeform: 'mother taught me never to speak with strangers' (tm) (r)

asciilifeform: why is there only one gate ?

asciilifeform: but the aspect i'd like to emphasize - one which mircea_popescu thought to be an optional frill and did not include in his spec - is the single-packet authentication.
asciilifeform: it is the one and only pill against ddos
decimation: as I recall his objection is that he didn't want third parties to be able to easily glean identites from packets
asciilifeform: generally speaking, your machine - to an attacker lacking the keys - must look exactly like an empty wall socket to the enemy.
phf: and you want it to be fully stateless?
asciilifeform: decimation: attacker cannot glean identity from an rsa-encrypted packet sent to a known public key

decimation: clear signatures would
asciilifeform: ~i~ mentioned it ☟︎
decimation: gonna have to re-read
asciilifeform: again, it wasn't in mircea_popescu's spec ☟︎
decimation: yeah I was more interested in the argument that generated it
asciilifeform: iirc he still thinks that ip as it exists now can be entirely abstracted over, and that the spec ought not mention details like packets
decimation: my earlier proposal of 'charging per packet routed' is a jungle way of implementing this
decimation: I see ip has here to stay forever, because of the $$ bil it would cost to do otherwise
decimation: maybe even $$ tril

asciilifeform: there is a basic principle which applies equally to the 'orphanage' discussions and to today's ddos thread: NEVER give derps something valuable just for showing up
asciilifeform: in NO possible universe does this lead to anything but grief

asciilifeform: decimation: it is as doomed as the cartoon wolf who walks off the cliff and does not necessarily notice - at first
decimation: no, I would argue that the benefits accrue to specific corporations
mircea_popescu: obviously.
decimation: for instance, spam drives everyone to big isp mail hosts, gmail, etc - not only for spam protection but also for 'web of trust'

asciilifeform: hence 'jam tomorrow'
decimation: 'web of trust' in this case being the poorly done implmentations of smtp routing
mircea_popescu: decimation riddle me this : you don't like reading dumb "newspapers", but how many good ones were sunk by exactly this before you heard of them ?
mircea_popescu: the process ensures everyone has to swim in the same pisspool.
decimation: yeah it's a fair point

decimation: similarly, the 'ddos attackers' end up driving everyone to akamai, etc
decimation: virii/malware benefit mcaffee and usg's 'cyber' budget
decimation: asciilifeform: I predict the bitcoin version will be resolved with some kind of central transaction clearhouse monopoly, sadly
asciilifeform: decimation: in what sense would that look like 'bitcoin' at all ?
decimation: what other option is there?
decimation: spv mining?
decimation: satoshi was being dumb when he failed to program payments for caching
asciilifeform: i still utterly fail to see what is so wrong with classic bitcoin
decimation: umm, didn't you just complain about the orphan problem?
asciilifeform: i shot that problem in the head
asciilifeform: while remaining compatible
asciilifeform: hence it was not part of 'bitcoin' at all.
decimation: hehe good point
asciilifeform: it was just a piece of shit stuck to the skin, not a tumour
decimation: but someone still needs to hold transactions until they 'clear'
asciilifeform: think of it this way - the mempool isn't, by the same token, really 'part of bitcoin' either
asciilifeform: there are 1,001 possible ways to queue up transactions for miners to choose from
decimation: mempool in this case being the gigantic c++ 'map' that holds transactions in memory?
phf: re: orphanage, i'm still investigating, but there's no reason why we can't have a better initial sync block handoff strategy, that doesn't get stock, because some parent in an orphanage subchain failed to get sent out
asciilifeform: the current one mostly works. if sufficiently abused, and folks with actual stake in the matter get sufficiently annoyed, another one will be used
phf: *get stuck
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu suggested at least one alternate scheme, iirc
asciilifeform: phf: in case you missed it, my nodes are not stuck
decimation: I suppose my point (central clearinghouse) is that I foresee some entity like akamai that will 'magic away' this problem for miners, who will all pay for the service
asciilifeform: if the miners want to march into a usg mousetrap, no problem
asciilifeform: it will snap shut, and a new set will be born
decimation: yes, but you would agree that building such a network with an eye toward minimizingn latency everywhere would be expensive ☟︎
decimation: because miners are gonna want max fees with min latency
jurov: it's not hard for every node to advertise addy for caching fees ☟︎
jurov: only needs wallet that creates N copies of the tx with N addresses
jurov: let them compete
decimation: jurov, what is 'N'? the length of the cache?
jurov: no, N nodes
decimation: ah I see
phf: asciilifeform: it's not a permanent stuck, but a slowdown. i haven't sent out that orphanage graph that i posted some time ago, because i'm still kicking shit around, but the beahior that you can see from it, is that blocks are sent out as multiple subchains. when a subchain arrives that's missing a parent subchain, it gets rejected many times over and over, until parent subchain is filled in. i think the behavior can be improved by
phf: mucking around with the code that desides what blocks to send to a requesting client
decimation: yeah that's kinda what I'm hinting at I guess
decimation: jurov: I was envision the miners paying for your caches, on the assumption that most folks won't want to pay a third party to clearn bitcoin
asciilifeform: phf: it would be absolutely trivial to send blocks in a sane way to compatible clients. 'embrace & extend' protocol
jurov: most people are not interesting here

decimation: heh. I admit part of me wants to journey to the falkland islands to see the gentoos
phf: asciilifeform: of course the easiest option is to add a new network command, that does a sane request for initial block chain parts, but i think it can still be done within the framework of current sync model
asciilifeform: i see nothing wrong with a 'get block N' command.
decimation: phf you are thinking 'give me block #N'?
decimation: heh
decimation: asciilifeform: what if you have an ongoing fork?
asciilifeform: then same situation as now
decimation: I suppose the serving node still has some idea of what block N is
phf: where N is the hash or the height?
asciilifeform: height!
decimation: yes
phf: right
decimation: actually such a command would be very useful for a 'fork detector'
phf: well, that's certainly a way to cut gordian knot

punkman: asciilifeform: I don't really have a theory. are we sure that nuked orphanage can't cause more wedges?
asciilifeform: punkman: i have yet to conceive of any wedge or other undesirable effect from it, other than a bit of wasted bandwidth
phf: i think maybe getblocks already works like "get block N" where n is block height. client sends out his top block on a chain, and server responds with a sequences (?) of blocks from then on
asciilifeform: (since you can't stop other folks from sending you bastard garbage)
punkman: do they have liquid nitrogen in other US cities?
punkman: seems expensive to maintain
asciilifeform: punkman: here in dc region they use tanks of compressed co2
asciilifeform: the one i spoke of in the linked thread hasn't been changed in... 2yrs
asciilifeform: if not longer
asciilifeform: quite empty
punkman: I have never seen any such thing in europe, perhaps they hide them
asciilifeform: the ones in nyc were fresh, covered in frost
asciilifeform: i do not know how long they have been there, but would dare to guess that it is since the flood a few yrs ago
asciilifeform: punkman: bottled dry gas is not a standard feature of copper phone grid!
punkman: guess it's cheaper than digging out shitty cables and replacing them
asciilifeform: normally, there are dry air machines at the exchange

assbot: Logged on 19-07-2015 18:34:53; mod6: but now I'm scared that even if i /do/ remove them by hand, they might get accidentially pruned by a downstream patch (later in time) causing the makefile to puke.
mod6: <+mod6> so... yah, a bash script or removal by hand. would be fine i'd think. but now i gotta test it a bit harder. if we leave empty directories in there, im worred that patch might come along at a later time and be helpful again, removing those object output diretories. << so if i do remove them by hand, have to ensure that these empty dirs wont get nuked later on accident
