Namworld: I wasn't aware he was staying in the space when he axed GLBSE.
ben_vulpes: it would be expedient to download miniupnpc 1.6 from http://miniupnp.free.fr/files/ but what do to prevent mitm of that source?

jborkl: So, there are two companies going btc belly up I have never even heard of
BingoBoingo: Seems to be
jborkl: Bittrader and moolah?
BingoBoingo: jborkl: Which ones?
BingoBoingo: Moolah's in Doge
jborkl: One bankrupted the other , ala week and bitfunder
BingoBoingo: Oh
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: in light of what i previously explained about botnets, it is difficult to calculate the actual value of a particular 0day.
jborkl: Ohh, no wonder
asciilifeform: rather like trying to come up with value for stolen painting.
asciilifeform: is it - what owner paid? what the 'fence' will get, on the blackmarket? what the fence will pay you?
jborkl: I guess moolah had a codind error that allowed you withdraw double what you deposited
jborkl: Coding
asciilifeform: very few people are equipped to safely monetize an 0day in person.

assbot: <fivezerotwo> hello <ninjashogun> hi <fivezerotwo> are you looking for investm - Pastebin.com
ninjashogun: see bottom 3 lines
ninjashogun: I just notice htat he's also being discussed in channel here now. (Someone pointed this out to me.) At first I assumed MP to have paid for this out of some weird strategy (since I came to MP with a small project recently, maybe he wanted to know if I still needed small amounts of money, etc.) But I thought you guys should see it.
jurov: so i came to the systemd stuff in the lawgs .. and
jurov: ;;isup lists.debian.org
gribble: lists.debian.org is down
jurov: ^^^
mats_cd03: i appreciate the contribution to drama ninjashogun
mats_cd03: lol dude operates a mixer.
ninjashogun: I was just referring to the bottom lines. <fivezerotwo> im just trolling you dude <fivezerotwo> we're being paid to troll you (and then he disconnected)
ninjashogun: Anyway it's not how anyone does business. Please don't do this.
BingoBoingo: Well he's DOS'ing stuff from in here so he's probably getting paid by someone from elsewhere
ninjashogun: nobody would pay anyone to troll me from anywhere except here :)
ninjashogun: anyway this is what I wrote MP on the subject - http://pastebin.com/VHQ4XyzA (via PM just now)
assbot: <ninjashogun> If you have anyhting to do with this (see bottom of conversatoin) - Pastebin.com
ninjashogun: Do you guys know what his other WoT rating was that he referred to?
ninjashogun: I mean other WoT nick?
mats_cd03: man, if hes being paid to troll, 10USD is not nearly enough for a ddos
ninjashogun: (for the record, I just have this one.)
jurov: no, it's nobody from here. as i wrote just above, indices lead to lennart poettering

If the good crypto persists, try to bury it behind a huge menu of bad options. Advertise “cryptographic agility”; actually cryptographic fragility. Pretend that this “agility” justifies using breakable crypto.
mircea_popescu: heh.

diametric: asciilifeform: docker's purpose isn't security per se. an escape can be irrelevant. if anything its a nice system for compartmentalizing your system and preventing the pollution of your filesystem with random libraries needed by a single application.
mircea_popescu: seems kinda clear. who's going to spend a coupla btc to get it back out of the hole ?
asciilifeform: diametric: aha i recall, a la bsd jail, yes.
diametric: asciilifeform: now if you're relying on docker to be a jail for the purposes of security, than that alone isn't ideal.

asciilifeform: so more of a parrot cage than a jail for man.

mircea_popescu: they didn't get gear to mine 6k bitcoins in 3 months for 2.5mn from bitfury, that's certain.
mircea_popescu: either they're lying about the bitcoins incoming, or they're paying a 5-10% to rent hashes.
mircea_popescu: prolly both, i guess.
mircea_popescu: anyway, see if the russian mobster puff daddy guy is willing to give you an interview. you got at least 10 decent q's to ask him in here.
cazalla: here we go "One such customer is the Australian stock market listed Digital BTC6, which purchased mining hardware from BitFury in March, May and August ((March and May purchase was a $2 million investment, August was $1.3 million.) of 2014.
cazalla: so 3.3m to earn 6k in past quarter
mircea_popescu: lmao this book is cooked.
cazalla: which is probably why they don't get specific about hashing power, where they mine etc etc
cazalla: i think they probably get the extra from skimming cloudhashing customers
mircea_popescu: there's not enough in that.
cazalla: plus they claimed to have sold old hardware and rent out 10% or 15% of their own hashing power
mircea_popescu: but anyway, my earlier figures were based on a june buy.
mircea_popescu: if they bought in march...
mircea_popescu: nethash back then was just about 25 ph total. like fuck they bought 1/5th of the network and nobody knew.

mircea_popescu: well pua has a major disadvantage for your run of the mill usian : it's falsifiable, like a science.
mircea_popescu: they need stuff more like SOCIAL sciences, ie, talkradio. so they came up with this unfalsifiable version that's all yak, no actual anything.

thestringpuller: Georgia Tech
thestringpuller: Like MIT but not as cold.
mircea_popescu: there weren't any pacts involved were there ?
mircea_popescu: wtf, wait a second, georgia tech is a major party school.
thestringpuller: Major alcholic school*
thestringpuller: people don't know how to party there!
thestringpuller: it's like 5 guys with 2 girls standing around drinking
thestringpuller: 5 guys for every 2 girls*
mircea_popescu: dude i dunno.
thestringpuller: I guess some kids just never "get" social skills.
mircea_popescu: "Alright chods, some of you could use some help on how to mack and succeed at parties. Mostly pledges do, but some bros could use a review. For anytime throughout the party… If you are standing by yourself at any point, YOU ARE OUTTA HERE!!! If you are talking to a brother of your pledge brothers when there are girls just standing around, YOU ARE OUTTA HERE!!!"
mircea_popescu: or how did that go.
thestringpuller: Oh yea. One second there was 1 fraternity that was very "rape-y"
thestringpuller: i'll get the leaked email
thestringpuller: Yea that's from it
mircea_popescu: myeah.
thestringpuller: "If the party is going good (a.k.a. there are a lot of open girls) try to escalate cause it.s awesome. Here is how to escalate: Try to twist her hips around to face you and dance front to front. FROM THERE THE OPTIONS ARE UNLIMITED! You can make-out with her (tongue on tongue), you can stick your hand up her shirt (not right away though), you can go for a butt grab (outside or inside the shirts), or use your imag
thestringpuller: Yea the girls at Tech are feminist so that email didn't go down too well.
thestringpuller: even though 1 out of every 3 girls found at a fraternity party is looking to hook up
thestringpuller: so I dunno ~_~
ThickAsThieves: 3 of 3
mircea_popescu: ^
mircea_popescu: wtf, why else is she there ? to get out of the atlanta rain ?
thestringpuller: usually it's girls under 21 trying to get free alcohol
thestringpuller: most girls at tech don't put out until they are 22
mircea_popescu: o.O
thestringpuller: ^- not really just making a joke
thestringpuller: But really, I hung out with a fraternity brother once who said he hooked up with a girl who didn't know she had a clitoris.
thestringpuller: But hey that's none of my business.
mircea_popescu: yeah, well, what bros say about women may or may not be indicative of women.

mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves amusingly, usgavin is pulling out the "your shit's not usg certified" card.
mircea_popescu: herpy-derp-a-derp, such a valid argument that is, really.
mircea_popescu: perhaps we "just don't understand how the world works".

ThickAsThieves: why are you what i say you are?
bounce: not unusual for scores of economists to be all wrong together
mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves i was merely summarizing.
ThickAsThieves: or to be wrong in general
mircea_popescu: bounce that's not even it. is he genuinely proposing that the bar for corectness is finding 5 "actual" economist sto agree,
mircea_popescu: because out of the fifty billion idiots that are nevertheless certified as economists by the us paper mill
ThickAsThieves: and why did none of them cosign?
mircea_popescu: never has it happened that more than 4 were in agreement on any piece of idiocy
mircea_popescu: nor could it, for structural reasons he's omitted to explain ?
ThickAsThieves: "Who are the 5 economists?"
mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves no. that is pushing things the wrong way.
mircea_popescu: because then he can give 5 names and make it look like he answered something.
ThickAsThieves: need to paint into corner to get truths
mircea_popescu: i couldn't care less if five popes signed on his stupidity.
mircea_popescu: this is exactly how this doesn't work.
mircea_popescu: the problem here isn't that gavin is trying to fuck things up, because he won't succeed.
mircea_popescu: the problem here is that gavin is trying to paint the box for the discussion.
mircea_popescu: and WE won't admit this theory where "econoimists" matter.
mircea_popescu: if they did, they had made bitcoin.
mircea_popescu: they didn't make bitcoin. they don't get to join later on and get a seat at the table.
ThickAsThieves: so he can be like 'ok ok gais, we'll only do 10% size per year, no shaddup'
mircea_popescu: an economist wants to be an economist, 6 months on the logs and tit pictures.

mircea_popescu: fucking shocking, 5 "actual" economists found that agree inflation is a good idea, and if anything is naturally uninflationary, adding it in is the tits.
bounce: the regulators really don't care what they're regulating, as long as they can make you dance on their regulation strings. what are we regulating this thing for again?
mircea_popescu: bounce yup. which is why the "you seem to have omitted suckling my penis, son" is the right approach.

thestringpuller: oh and it links to the logs
thestringpuller: someone is sane?
bounce: really don't feel like reading the entire circle thing. the headlines read reasonable but eg. the bit about aml merely says "aml doubleplus good. we happy to aml for you. you want even more aml than the feds, no good." which is a bit weak.
ThickAsThieves: itd be unreasonable to ask for special treatment for less reg
ThickAsThieves: in the end, current regs already do apply
bounce: it's the only way out, actually
bounce: look here, the guy's proposing lots of regs so he can make his mark on history. then he can do one of two things: more regs, recommending less regs. what he cannot possibly do is keep regulatory levels the same as federal requirements because that deprives him of making his mark on history.
bounce: this goes even if it's the only possible choice. that it isn't, because the aml regs already make little sense and even more stringent rules therefore can only make even less sense.
bounce: so what's going to happen is there'll be some toning down on this proposal to show heart to the community and all that, but we still end up with more rules than already required. and in a few years the whole thing becomes obsolete because unworkable. there goes the mark on history.

mircea_popescu: the worst part of it being that you know, he KNOWS about this place.
mircea_popescu: could have avoided being stupid in public by just asking.
bounce: curious really how the difficulty gets adjusted automatically but the size limit, implying a maximum number of transactions per second, isn't.
mircea_popescu: well, curious how the car moves forward, but not realy upward.
mircea_popescu: gotta have some fixed points to have a working equilibrium
mircea_popescu: if everything gives every which way you got postmodern us, ie, a mess.
mircea_popescu: that's actually the definition of mess.
bounce: postmodern us is full of silly arbitrary limits; it's not a natural equilibrium
mircea_popescu: this prolly warrants an in depth discussion. like what ?
bounce: not that blocksize elasticity is automatically a good idea. it opens up an avenue for attack to push the smaller players out
mircea_popescu: that'd be unrelated. can we discuss one thing at a time ?
bounce: hm? how, oh, aml/kyc stuff causes banks to be happy to kick clients out that cause regulatory headaches. why are banks supposed to be policing their clients again?
mircea_popescu: so far what i got from your position is, "curious how the market adjusts the price of the oil barrel, but not what a barrel consists of"
bounce: or that whole spiel with the cows and the senator
mircea_popescu: yes, it has to work that way. some things gotta be fixed.
mircea_popescu: how are either of those two examples of limits ?
bounce: to the point that fixing the points becomes its own game, and they're "fixed" in the sense that a happy few get to move the goalposts but they're not moving any less. they are pretty much guaranteed to be suboptimal, though.
mircea_popescu: which is what "if everything gives every which way you got postmodern us, ie, a mess." is saying.
bounce: was under the impression you were referring to a non-meta-game situation
mircea_popescu: ah kay.
mircea_popescu: anyway, "blocksize elasticity" and all the rest of the derpage is trying to turn bitcoin into whatever, xrp, nxt, whatever the hell.
mircea_popescu: if those things actually worked, they wouldn't have blown up.

kakobrekla: classic problem of small providers
dr_love: mircea_popescu: when you need to buy a ticket to have a 1 in xxx,xxx,xxx chance to win the jackpot

mircea_popescu: dr_love how is this different from a dice site ?
kakobrekla: when one customer will threaten all the seven you got
BingoBoingo: dr_love: I'd recommend picking a fiat lottery and starting a BitBet on its drawing
mircea_popescu: kakobrekla that's a flawed premise. collective security, baby.
dr_love: mircea_popescu: player's perception? the jackpot grows huge after a few rollovers
kakobrekla: like cloudflare!

jurov: *basket
BingoBoingo: dr_love: Write a bitbet "Between XX/YY/ZZZ and AA/BB/CCC the sum of the numbers drawn in a powerball drawing will be Divisible by 37" put 1 BTC on yes, wait for people to take the other side when they do the math.

mircea_popescu: should be more or less in the $100 range that you were discussing.
dr_love: BingoBoingo: what's "exciting" in lotto is the huge, lifechanging jackpot. dice is much more real in that sense, so the conversion rate might just be bigger in lotto
mircea_popescu: but very congested places it can run significantly more, and some (esp new) places may be giving it away free for a long commit
mircea_popescu: dr_love understand : either the player wins his own money (ie, risks 1 cent, may make 100 btc 1:10000 times)
bounce: "13 acres" parces size and "8200 sqft usable, underground space". seems like a rather small bunker for that plot of land. so essentially buying a farm with some stray concrete in the soil?
bounce: s/parces/parcel/
mircea_popescu: or else he wins other's money. to get a jackpot large you need a bunch of idiots to play a bad odds gamre for a long time.
mircea_popescu: they may just as well play dice in that interval for better EV
BingoBoingo: bounce: Well more parcel for smaller bunker means more surface area for missiles to miss
dr_love: I do understand that, however people are perceiving it differently and positive EV tickets are a few jackpot rollovers away
mircea_popescu: bounce 8k sqft underground is a respectable wine cellar.
mircea_popescu: dr_love you can still run it like BingoBoingo suggested, for no extra cost, if you got the "people" in question

mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo pretty much the only thing about a dc location is if it's on a ring or not.
mircea_popescu: is there one in kansas ?
bounce: that's positive, means presumably already optimised for sticking in racked gear, except probably not for the density and consequent heat required these days
dr_love: what if you fund it for it to be neutral EV from t0 with a little jackpot kickstarter fund on the side? you can surely make it back if you grab enough attention with the initial offering
BingoBoingo: That one seems to be by KC, so probably feasible to get fiber from a few different directions

mircea_popescu: Once the SWAT team reached the bunker's blast doors, they 'knock' to announce their presence. It is unclear exactly what they say, as no sound is recorded from the surveillance system. CyberBunker is equipped with an advanced Intruder Detection System (IDS), however due to a testing drill the previous night the IDS system was accidentally left in the inactive mode. Two SWAT officers are seen to hit the blast door of th ☟︎
mircea_popescu: e bunker with a battering ram. It must not have occurred to the officers that the blast doors were designed to withstand a 20 megaton nuclear explosion from close range. When the SWAT team realized that the door was not being opened for them, they throw flashbangs and take other actions to draw attention. The surveillance footage shows quite a lot of activity at this point. On the other side of the blast doors, no one
mircea_popescu: inside the bunker noticed anything unusual. The SWAT team did some further investigating, and appears to be making phone calls. Finally the SWAT team realized what occurred when City Hall attempted to breach the blast doors. Apparently recognizing that they had gone overboard on their raid, the SWAT team decided to go home.
mircea_popescu: aww.
mircea_popescu: dat phonecall lol. like a chick stood up on a date, only lulzier.
bounce: that is the upside to "forgetting" to turn on your "advanced surveillance system" on your cold war bunker. "what, swat tried to raid us? didn't notice"
undata: that is beautiful
mircea_popescu: "CyberBunker's lawyers later discovered that the police had indeed sent officers to the bunker for what they claimed was a “routine check” and that nothing out of the ordinary had taken place. When CyberBunker's lawyers suggested that the surveillance footage could be put online, the police department then quickly offered to pay to repair the damage caused to the fence.
mircea_popescu: After paying € 8088.- euros to CyberBunker, nothing further was heard from the SWAT team."

asciilifeform: jurov: is asciilifeform actually paying so much for his blog << machine is wanted for nosuchlabs.com - currently home to 'phuctor.' i've an astonishingly vast quantity of donated pubkeys - job that wants real, vs. virtual, cpu to crunch (and plentiful memory)

asciilifeform: but hypothetical enemy in our modern scenario has no problem getting to the door.
