asciilifeform: why does anybody interested in btc need a 'fund' ?
asciilifeform: someone please enlighten me?
mircea_popescu: Ademan it's complicated.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform because the average american owns some bezzle called 401k
mircea_popescu: which he's not allowed to spend on normal nonbezzle items

Shakespeare: to bad that bet ends so soon
Shakespeare: too*
kakobrekla: not much game on ltc bets
Ademan: it's also a sufficient PITA to buy BTC (legally) and the average person *likes* investing in HerpDerp Corp, and are no doubt frightened by there being no CEO of Bitcoin to hate
Shakespeare: if you had LTCbet.us maybe more action
Shakespeare: of course AltBet.us would have to come first
Shakespeare: she's selfish like that
Ademan: crapcoinbet.us
diametric: theres ltc bombs if i'm not mistaken

kakobrekla: asciilifeform not sure how this correlates , explain ?
asciilifeform: kakobrekla: any kind of heavy machinery directly wired to a prediction market is, well... this.
ThickAsThieves: kako only suggested a conversion mechanism, no?
kakobrekla: correct
asciilifeform: not that it's a bad idea per se, just that the builder must be careful to avoid creating a situation where someone can lift out of his pockets by artificially steering the machine using a heavy bet
robertmcmillan: Hey Mircea. Sorry not used to this UI. How do I DM you?
ThickAsThieves: there's mor ethan one way to design such a thing for bitbet, so i could see a bad design being possible
kakobrekla: i see only one way
ThickAsThieves: well how do you handle payout in alts?
asciilifeform: roughly, fooling the system by betting in a particular way should always have -EV.
kakobrekla: but whatever, lets not get into that, someone should at least try to do it though
dexX7: Ademan: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=438359.msg4816701#msg4816701 + data sheet "leaked" yesterday ... gen 3 is coming
asciilifeform: as soon as it has +EV under any conceivably-predictable circumstances, you're fucked
Ademan: dexX7: yeah, saw that, wasn't gen3 supposed to be out by this month though?
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i think his idea was just "offer altcoin betting on bitbet, do alt<>btc conversion for your customers transparently"
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: perhaps i misunderstood then
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [NEOBEE] 31 @ 0.0035 = 0.1085 BTC [+]
asciilifeform: my impression was that he suggested coupling a bitbet-like apparatus to a trading bot.

assbot: [HAVELOCK] [AM100] 20 @ 0.00634444 = 0.1269 BTC [+] {2}

Ademan: asciilifeform: RAM for what? SHA256 doesn't need much memory
asciilifeform: wait i thought this was ltc
asciilifeform: nm
asciilifeform should probably goto bed
dexX7: Ademan: additionally there are some who believe there was already a test run with the new chips and a reseller already promoted an am gen3 based miner
kakobrekla: the money flow nao is user->bbet->user, to implement alt you do it user->service->bbet->service->user
kakobrekla: where service is a proxy via exchange
Ademan: dexX7: I thought I read an update that stated Q1 back in december
ThickAsThieves: problem is you dont wanna convert it twice
dexX7: that was probably related to the tape out in january
novusordo: one of AM's previous resellers posted something about a new miner, with specs
benderp: robertmcmillan: welcome
dexX7: yea rockxie or so
novusordo: yup
deadweasel: also, why support alts?
kakobrekla: yes well i dont want to do the dishes
deadweasel: bingo
ThickAsThieves: many reasons deadweasel
dexX7: alts are great as testbed
ThickAsThieves: the easiest being, they exist and always will
ThickAsThieves: best not to pretend otherwise
deadweasel: and the admin work of shuffling them around is absurd
Ademan: ideally you'd accept every payment option possible to maximize your potential customers, really
deadweasel: shells, do you accept my shells?
ThickAsThieves: send them to my cryptsy wallet

deadweasel: unfortunately so.
novusordo: so why not me too?
deadweasel: that is the question
ThickAsThieves: well Altcoin renders most altcoins worthless
novusordo: i'll create momcoin under a different pseudonym, and give it slightly different properties than cryptoshekels

mircea_popescu: that's how it works.
antephialtic: no SEC
mircea_popescu: sec what ?
antephialtic: the SEC asked you to identify MPEx shareholders of S.DICE, and was willing to accept Name and address OR btc address
mircea_popescu: you know, just because i ask for x y z doesn't automatically mean i consider all of these "identification"
BCB: SEC has a blockchain parser with you names next to all the addresses.

antephialtic: perhaps the SEC is inept, but there are other agencies in the US government that contract services from non-inept firms to do their dirty work
antephialtic: and the bumpkins at the SEC may have been given access to such a tool built by such a contractor.

[\]: By the end of fiscal year 1991, the number of patent secrecy orders stood at 6,193. Many such orders were imposed on individuals and organizations working without government support. This number shrank for each fiscal year thereafter, until 2002. Since 2002, the number of secrecy orders has grown, with 5,002 secrecy orders in effect at the end of fiscal year 2007.

asciilifeform: hence his question about vregs.
mircea_popescu: to a large degree buttons are small regulating neh ?
asciilifeform: if only.
mircea_popescu: can't you get models taht are essentially draw-driven ?
asciilifeform: which is to say, they are, in the sense that a li cell that's been dead for decades will sometimes measure 3.0
asciilifeform: when disconnected
mircea_popescu: ie, they discharge at a given rate, you can alter their actual voltage by the resistence ?
asciilifeform: you can - this is called 'divider' - but it throws away energy
mircea_popescu: well yeah
mircea_popescu: but 6 x .9 = 5.4
asciilifeform: 'buck converter' is more efficient, in that it works by letting a cap charge to the desired voltage and then empty into another
mircea_popescu: you're only throwing away like .2 or sometyhing
asciilifeform: voltage dividers also have a nasty habit of non-linearity over current draw
mircea_popescu: or conversely 4 x 1.3 is just about 5.x
asciilifeform: work it out on napkin
asciilifeform: hence people buy 'regulators' - e.g. the ubiquitous 7805
asciilifeform: or, the slightly more determined, buy/build 'dc-dc' converters, of the kind described previously.

asciilifeform: why the hurry?
antephialtic: I was recently looking into buying a hardware device for GPG signing and everything on the market looks pretty clunky. I stumbled onto the Cardano, and it seemed pretty well suited to my use case
asciilifeform: antephialtic: be so kind as to briefly describe your use case - for my enlightenment
antephialtic: have multiple machines that I want to sign emails from, some of which are not fully in my control (e.g. workstation owned by employer)
mircea_popescu: sounds like a winner.
asciilifeform: aha
asciilifeform: this is certainly one of the intended use scenarios, yes.
mircea_popescu: antephialtic ideally should be available to order late april.
antephialtic: cool, do you have any idea what the pricing will be like?
asciilifeform: mp proposed a tentative price at one point, but that was some time ago
asciilifeform: intent is for the product to be priced competitively vs. the state-of-the-art alternative (i.e. the traditional '90s laptop with linux/gpg in ROM)
asciilifeform: that is, the contrivance i assume everyone here is presently using in lieu of a cardano
asciilifeform: do not neglect to take into account what the substitute costs (incl. one's time)
asciilifeform: the old saw, 'xxxx is free if yer time has no value'
antephialtic: indeed. as long as the price is not obscene, I am willing to pay for convenience without sacrificing security.
diametric: It saddens me my get in wot is not of one generated with a cardano.
diametric: key*
asciilifeform: diametric: you do know that one can change keys in wot
asciilifeform: diametric: assuming, naturally, control of the previous key
diametric: asciilifeform: I swore you had told me you couldn't before.

diametric: I must have misheard you
asciilifeform: and took ages
asciilifeform: i did mention that i tried and it croaked
asciilifeform: but two weeks later, there it was
mircea_popescu: antephialtic price won't be obscene
asciilifeform: diametric: afaik the only well-known, interesting place where key can never be changed is mpex
mircea_popescu: and even there... reg new key, push assets, good to go.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: unless i'm mistaken, this counts as buying a new subscription
mircea_popescu: aye
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i like to imagine that it covers the cost of a girl etching the new key in a granite plinth
mircea_popescu: lol if it weren't a security issue i suppose i could make rings for people

mircea_popescu: bitcoinpete maybe it works out.
bitcoinpete: ah thought there might've been more there
mircea_popescu: notrly.
joecool: mircea_popescu: i figured you'd say as much, it does seem trivial though to echo a string into the device before key generation, have it set a default counter to 3, and require that same string to be passed to the device in order to activate signing function
joecool: mircea_popescu: when counter hits zero cannot sign anything, need to nuke and generate new keys
mircea_popescu: what if you accidentally leave the string in paste buffer or w/e
joecool: mircea_popescu: don't do that?
mircea_popescu: so you see my point.
mircea_popescu: device is designed to fight enemy not user.
joecool: mircea_popescu: except the secret is worthless without the token, if someone had that secret they'd still need physical possession of the device

benkay: implicit due to previous conversations is the notion that america doesn't produce worthwhile comedy.
chetty: the trend to video for everything is awful. people to lazy to write/read :(
BingoBoingo: Well, Bill Murray aligns himself with the Usurper regime from chicago
benkay: it's downright baffling, chetty. take, for instance, the podcast noted above. how much more work is it to do that thing than to just write out one's thoughts?
BingoBoingo: chetty: My objection to the video and podcasting is that when I digest information on my own time I want to do it in an aesthetic environment of my choice.
benkay: i suppose that presumes being able to put one's thoughts into coherent words instead of babbling into a microphone.
BingoBoingo: Also some stuff can't be digested well from audio.
chetty: I like podcasts sometimes, listen while doing other stuff but mostly I'd rather read
BingoBoingo: Like the Kritik

asciilifeform: journarasts fear real-time net witnesses in exactly the same way that mythological vampire fears sunlight and crucifix
asciilifeform: or a slug - salt. etc
mircea_popescu: "bitcoin will solve the problems of wealth inequality" like hell it will
mircea_popescu: "bitcoin is anonymously private" yea right, totally.
mircea_popescu: etc.
ThickAsThieves: like with ughlol, he knows you'd not value him more than he's worth in public, but maybe, just maybe, you take him a lil more seriously in private. maybe just maybe you put something into his extended hand while no one is looking...
asciilifeform: 'solve the problems of wealth inequality' is usually 'duckspeak' (see orwell)
mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves amusingly, it's exactly the converse. in public he can stand symbolic, in private he can't be more than just himself.
nubbins`: journarasts!!
mircea_popescu: that's why it's not happening, when i talk to him here i'm talking to "aspirational 19yo indian kid"
nubbins` searches for a medal to pin on alf

ThickAsThieves: but then people might make fun of me!

mircea_popescu: binary notation, 1000x is like 8x
Neil: mircea_popescu: "Rejection reason: Phrase it so you zeroconf on no." What does that mean in English?
mircea_popescu: you probably made a bet that the mod judged as having zero chances in hell of coming out no and you put your money on yes
ThickAsThieves: make it so the bet is not infinite
Neil: I don't think so. Who can answer definitively?
mircea_popescu: aite lemme see what's there
Neil: ThickAsThieves: What do you mean, not infinite?
Neil: Those where mod thinks it's too one-sided are usually rejected with some kind of "put substantial paid wager on XX"
Neil: Seems to be about the wording. But negative bets are not allowed, so worded it the way I did.
ThickAsThieves: Can't you just say, diff will not change more than 16%, then have a close date?
Neil: That's negative
Neil: That's what I wanted to say...
ThickAsThieves: diff increases will be less than 16%
Neil: Is the problem the word "forever"? If so happy to resubmit...
ThickAsThieves: well forever obv has to be removed
Neil: Other bets have had forever in them...
ThickAsThieves: ...
Neil: mircea_popescu: If you can confirm I'll redo.
ThickAsThieves: thats not a reason
ThickAsThieves: bitbet has made mistakes yknow
Neil: Hard to believe...
mircea_popescu: no, it does.
ThickAsThieves: the notion of forever being held within something with a life span
Neil: Dunno what zeroconf means as a verb
ThickAsThieves: absurd
mircea_popescu: anyway, this resulted from a interpretation of a moslty unrelated standing order i gave.
mircea_popescu: that aside, you can't have infinite bets.
Neil: So ok to resubmit worded more like TATs suggestion?
mircea_popescu: yeah, not more than x% by y should work
Neil: Don't wanna waste everyone's time if it's just gonna be rejected again
Neil: OK
mircea_popescu: and if it doesn't, we'll at least find out why
mircea_popescu: by now my shit is too complex for me to even say, and i don't even code ;/

asciilifeform: i don't even code << probably more first-rate heads have been ruined by programming computers than dope
mircea_popescu: you think ?
mircea_popescu: anyway the common encounter with runaway systematic complexity is for most people in computer programming
asciilifeform: i sorta run a blog about this, 7 yrs. now. and programmers come to tell me that i'm a barking madman
mircea_popescu: hehehe
asciilifeform: and that things are exactly as they ought to be
ThickAsThieves: i dont think it's the programming to blame
mircea_popescu: well that works out then.

Mats_cd03: in murica, anyway
nubbins`: have you noticed that people who offer asinine statements like yours are usually neckbeards who have an unrealistic concept of women based solely on their years of internet wizardry?
mircea_popescu: he's not that old.
Mats_cd03: people look at salary averages for men and women, and temporarily forget women sometimes allow a parasite to grow inside them for close to a year that makes them worthless for productive work
LordPutin: your not a bitcoiner if you dont have a neckbeard

Mats_cd03: and usually they go on to raise the bugger and leave work to do it
mircea_popescu: Neil nuts huh.
Mats_cd03: so...the corresponding salary differential is a product of that, but in many fields they have parity
nubbins`: Mats_cd03: in fact, if you exclude women who have children, there's still income disparity
mircea_popescu: Mats_cd03 in my experience pregnancy has no discernible effect on productivity.

assbot: [HAVELOCK] [COG] 9 @ 0.0190016 = 0.171 BTC [-]
ThickAsThieves: succinct*
asciilifeform: ThickAsThieves: there is not, in fact, a programming language called 'lisp', but a large number of langs with various defining characteristics that put them in the category.
asciilifeform: ThickAsThieves: this is described, somewhat abrasively, here: http://www.loper-os.org/?p=405
asciilifeform: ThickAsThieves: additionally, there exist other 'programmable programming languages' - most famously, 'forth'
ThickAsThieves: thx
asciilifeform: ThickAsThieves: here, for instance, is an example of a minimal lisp in ~500 lines of C: https://github.com/qyqx/small-lisp/blob/master/sl3.c
ThickAsThieves: is there a Lisp "framework" and "library" or would such be heresy?
asciilifeform: ThickAsThieves: there is an unimaginable abundance of libraries of every description for various lisps
asciilifeform: ThickAsThieves: i'm partial to 'Common Lisp' (ANSI INCITS 226-1994)
asciilifeform: if you have a x86, x64, ppc, sparc, alpha, mips: http://sbcl.org
asciilifeform: or, if you like commercial support, there are proprietary products like 'Allegro' (franz corp.)
benkay: lisps can be found that sit atop most other languages too, ThickAsThieves. there are python lisps, java lisps...
ThickAsThieves: mostly i'm just trying to at least have a superficial understanding
benkay: if you squint, lean your head sideways and don't work with other javascript developers javascript can be written fairly lispily.
asciilifeform: one can sit a minimal, 'academic' lisp on top of virtually anything in 1/2 hr.
asciilifeform: but usually people are interested in something that is actually usable
asciilifeform: 'sbcl,' for instance, runs at close to the speed of compiled 'c' when used intelligently
asciilifeform: (it is a pure dynamic compiler - no interpreter at all)
ThickAsThieves: so lisp is more a way of speaking, than a language
asciilifeform: as described in my brick essay
asciilifeform: though the concepts do have a common ancestor (mccarthy, 1958)
ThickAsThieves: i see
asciilifeform: charlatans have been getting by for decades lifting feature after feature from common lisp
asciilifeform: and pitching it as 'new, amazing'
asciilifeform: e.g. garbage collection
asciilifeform: dynamic typing
asciilifeform: 'lambda'

ThickAsThieves: "Starting today, Gmail will always use an encrypted HTTPS connection when you check or send email. Gmail has supported HTTPS since the day it launched, and in 2010 we made HTTPS the default. Today's change means that no one can listen in on your messages as they go back and forth between you and Gmail’s servers—no matter if you're using public WiFi or logging in from your computer,
ThickAsThieves: phone or tablet.
ThickAsThieves: In addition, every single email message you send or receive—100% of them—is encrypted while moving internally. This ensures that your messages are safe not only when they move between you and Gmail's servers, but also as they move between Google's data centers—something we made a top priority after last summer’s revelations."

ThickAsThieves: The engineer was caught after the blogger emailed Microsoft to confirm the authenticity of the leaked Windows 8 code. Investigators at the firm then reportedly looked through the blogger’s hotmail account and instant messenger chats to identify the source of the leak, and found an email from Kibaklo.
mod6: WE can put direct links to your businesses in the description of said video as well as get some girls to say " [your business name here] is great!!" while dressed up in fancy clothes and out on the town. << hahaha

BingoBoingo: Sure, but passports, petty spats with local authorities
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: trapped in u.s. ?
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: might want to work on fixing this, if only for practice.
BingoBoingo: Of sorts, at least until May. I suppose I could drive to a North American border and walk if something urgent, but... This thing with the neighboring county still needs to play out

asciilifeform: aha
nubbins`: can also print on optical discs!
nubbins`: we already have one of these with an all-black CIS hooked up, for printing films
nubbins`: this one will be for color prints
nubbins`: sadly, i dropped the ball and only ordered the color CIS kit today
asciilifeform: what's it for? propaganda?
ThickAsThieves: posters and proofs probly
nubbins`: ^
nubbins`: all three, i suppose
nubbins`: altho silkscreen printing is a better medium for propaganda
nubbins`: we do occasionally get requests from people who want digital prints tho, and it's kind of silly to own a print shop that doesn't have a color printer

Namworld: Actual conversation with the irrelevant chatter filtered out. People were talking about making a leveraged trading platforms for altcoins. Advice falling on deaf ears.
Namworld: [17:06] <Namworld> I'm a noob coder. I could maybe have patched up something in a few months, pretended I knew what I was doing and lost customers funds, making tons of money meanwhile. But I'm not a self-centered, over-confident, can-never-fail asshat,
Namworld: [17:09] <Namworld> I know basic PHP and just barely touched database. I made a microapp for fun, that just tracks views and clicks and banners, for a banner exchange. Without any user interface or accounts capability. Just the script for the banners + tracking.
Namworld: [17:09] <Namworld> If I had patched up an exchange with added complexity and everything, it would probably have been a security disaster.
Namworld: [17:10] <TheMediator> Namworld, how long would it take you to get together something VERY simple so that like 10 of us could trade on it
Namworld: [17:10] <TheMediator> I can host and such
Namworld: [17:11] <Namworld> Dangerous thing, it took only a few hours to learn how to do. Making an exchange is in the reach of any moron willing to put a few days to learn how to and a month or two to code it full time.
Namworld: [17:12] <Namworld> That's why you can't trust any website that comes up with a Bitcoin service. Even if it looks nice.
Namworld: [17:12] <deup> that is why there are a bunch of exchanges
Namworld: [17:12] <Namworld> You can't audit the code.
Namworld: [17:12] <TheMediator> its up to you namworld. If you think you can make it happen, we can use it as a base.
Namworld: [17:12] <TheMediator> and expand from there
Namworld: [17:12] <TheMediator> I think we have enough experience between the regulars where we could take turns hacking the exchange until we get it fairly secure
Namworld: I probably should have pastbin'ed that
Apocalyptic: ^
Apocalyptic: who are these guys anyway ?
Namworld: The generic BTC crowd.
Namworld: Those that are on trading IRC channels talking about their profits and loss and speculating.

assbot: [HAVELOCK] [PETA] 7 @ 0.071 = 0.497 BTC [-] {3}
Namworld: No, the currency trading channels
Namworld: Not about trading between users, literally the channels where they just talk about what they're doing, why they think price is headed that or that way and such.
Namworld: I'm not trading anything, I just have like 20+ IRC channels open about Bitcoin.
Apocalyptic: Namworld, you mean -pricetalk ?
Namworld: not specifically, there's like 3-4 other channels like pricetalk.
Namworld: At least for those with 30-50 users or more.
daybyter: like #cryptoforex, or so?
Namworld: or #bitcointraders or #bitcoin-analysis and etc
daybyter: so you don't trade anything, but wanna know why the price went up or down?
daybyter: maybe read goomboo's journal, or so?
daybyter: but why should you care if the price goes up or down?
Namworld: Who said I cared? I just have many BTC related channels opened at all time. On the plus side, those channels tend to be quick to link any article related to Bitcoin.
Ghaleon: if you import a wallet.dat file into bitcoind does it copy over the receiving addresses? everything that I have read says IT WILL NOT COPY over receiving addresses....
