asciilifeform: Mocky: didja read the libudp coad ?
asciilifeform: Mocky: http://btcbase.org/patches/udp_errata.asciilifeform/tree/
Mocky is reading
asciilifeform: and in particular, http://btcbase.org/patches/udp_genesis#L440
asciilifeform: i pissed on unix idjicy, none of my routines return sizes or read/write variant lengths. all packets presumed to be hardcoded size.
asciilifeform: as imho is proper, i.e. max frame size.
asciilifeform: all received packets are either valid (i.e. the one troo size) or invalid (if not).
asciilifeform: all buffers preallocated on stack , to the fixed size.
Mocky: ok so does the hardcoding need to be in-package for the preallocated buffers?
asciilifeform: yes.
asciilifeform: diana_coman has a 'generic' ver, a kind of ada cheat i suggested ; but it has minus of preventing restriction encapsulation, as well as inevitably moar complex receiver (mine handles one size and one size only)
asciilifeform: Mocky: y'understand what preallocated means. it means fixed, at compile time, here.
asciilifeform: invariant.
Mocky: no, i get it
asciilifeform: ok
Mocky: it's a simplifying assumption that pays off with smooth transition between program and unix, when it holds. a tactical cut
asciilifeform: Mocky: hm?
Mocky: so long as you can assume one tru packet size, you can get some ada benefits + extra simplicity, that you don't get otherwise, no?
asciilifeform: Mocky: unixism per se had ~nuffin to do with it. incut away a degree of freedom. unnecessary degrees of freedom are fundamentally harmful in re simplicity/sanity.
asciilifeform: they're a bus with 4 brake pedals.
asciilifeform: * i cut
asciilifeform: there's no reason os's udp should even fucking accept a sub-frame packet payload. or super-framed.
asciilifeform: 1572 bytes or go pound sand.
asciilifeform: lol 1472
asciilifeform: max ethernet frame - hdr len. nomoar, noless.
asciilifeform: nic sends 1500 frame always, recall.
asciilifeform: no matter what you ask for.
asciilifeform: leave n bytes in frame empty, simply gives 'fritz chip' handy spot to stuff kleptograms in...
Mocky: if a program wants to send 200 byte packets only, too bad, os won't allow cuz asciilifeform says your small number not godly?
asciilifeform: nic wont allow!
asciilifeform: nic sends and receives 1500 per frame! rtfm plz.
asciilifeform: ethernet spec. blame xerox , not asciilifeform
asciilifeform: yer still sending 1500, even if packet is nominal len 3.
Mocky: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-10-14#1862236 >> reject at os was yours
a111: Logged on 2018-10-14 04:50 asciilifeform: there's no reason os's udp should even fucking accept a sub-frame packet payload. or super-framed.
asciilifeform: from electrical pov, you win nuffin by shortening'em under a frame.
asciilifeform: Mocky: imho os should not perpetuate delusion.
asciilifeform: i for instance am sitting here and tryin', not always successfully, to cure folx of delusions that linux instilled in'em, e.g. 'tcp gives cheap an' reliable pipes' ( cured mircea_popescu after , what, 3y ) and nao 'udp packets can be anyffing, not merely 1472' (not cured yet..)
asciilifeform: point being, they're mirages, lies linux tells the hapless user.
Mocky: the important point being that as a matter of policy, perpetuating smaller packet sizes is a bad idea
asciilifeform: Mocky: there's precisely 1 packet size. in physical box. 1500. it's the railroad gauge.
asciilifeform: errything else is hokum created by ip stack theatrics. and incurs complexity cost for 0 win.
asciilifeform: Mocky: read up re what yer nic actually does. then will grasp that by pretending that it does something, anything , else, you incur runaway complexity cost and impedance mismatch. always.
Mocky: I don't disagree. I just wasn't able to infer this stance from your stated objection >> http://btcbase.org/log/2018-10-13#1862166
a111: Logged on 2018-10-13 20:48 asciilifeform: would get much simpler coad (i.e. my orig. fixed frame) vs the extended one with moar moving parts.
asciilifeform: i dun think i can say anyffing else to make this point clearer, it's imho as screamingly obvious as 2+2, if you take the time to rtfm. so i'ma leave it at this.
asciilifeform: Mocky: i was describing why i wrote it as i did.
asciilifeform: the physical nic ~always sends 1500!~ it also always receives 1500!!
asciilifeform: there are not actually variant packets on the wire!
asciilifeform: only fulls and frags, is all there is.
Mocky: I get it and I agree with you.

a111: Logged on 2018-10-02 14:52 asciilifeform: 4096bit is 512byte, you're sending 1500 frame always, even if your nominal packet is 3bytes long. simply how ethernet worx.
asciilifeform: Mocky: ok. so, observe, i dun record or return lengths. all length are either $full ( which i tentatively had set to 512, pre-rftming) or invalid ( may as well 0 )

jurov: Hi all thebitcoin.foundation is being switched to new server, not just the A record but whole DNS changed, there might be issues next few hours.

ave1: asciilifeform, http://btcbase.org/log/2018-10-14#1862262, strange, it seems that ethernet does allow for variable length packages. I can see that the header / data ratio is smallest at the largest physical package size.

diana_coman: the tester does not pack them in rsa or serpent proper so it's the "package" there rather than protocol message, I guess that might be confusing, I'll update
diana_coman: packets even, right
diana_coman: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-10-14#1862213 -> it's more than just one if statement (although unnecessary branches in themselves are not great anyway); basically it's the udp code itself that has to be messed up to accommodate this particular thing - either using generic or otherwise using the largest of the two and then filtering one level higher
a111: Logged on 2018-10-14 04:30 Mocky: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-10-13#1862167 >> I don't see how it would necessarily be any simpler aside from one `if` statement. And there's nothing to stop listening on separate ports and getting all benefits asciilifeform mentions with different sizes
diana_coman: in fact the 3rd option that is the one actually to use is having different sizes on the two processes (i.e. different constant simply)
diana_coman: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-10-14#1862203 -> the point as I see it is precisely that physically there actually is only ONE type anyway so any different types/sizes is in fact a higher level filtering no matter what (i.e. having 2 different processes each with its own size doesn't mean that each will actually get only the size it wants)
a111: Logged on 2018-10-14 01:09 mircea_popescu: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-10-13#1862164 << yes ; cuz all 1470s go to one process and all 1472s go to a different one. eventually as a scalability thing could even go to diff box altogether. there's not so muchrelation between the two types.

diana_coman: ave1, now the sig doesn't verify??

diana_coman: ave1, typos: "opation" "to determin" "here a short list" "therefor" "registor" "zero's" "implentation" "not if statements"
diana_coman: as it is, it will be a .vpatch after the lookup implementation - so linear sequence rather than alternative; you might want to branch the tree instead from *before* the lookup implementation so that your div version is effectively alternative branch
diana_coman: though I don't yet see how would one bring them together afterwards without requiring BOTH of them
asciilifeform: ohai diana_coman

ave1: yes, I see! I will try that too. I have no idea how it could automatically resolve (i.e. How could patch that has your original patch as it's parent ever work on top of this one)
ave1: resolve though

diana_coman: this is why I'm still skeptical re http://btcbase.org/log/2018-10-12#1861225
a111: Logged on 2018-10-12 18:14 diana_coman: and it fits perfectly the original idea of alternative, proper
diana_coman: asciilifeform, perhaps I'm missing something obvious re ^ ?
diana_coman: i.e. can one effectively branch the v tree to provide an alternative .vpatch i.e. this or that stand at this place in the pressed line?
asciilifeform: diana_coman: the way i understand 'v branching as civilized replacement for #ifdefism', the branches unavoidably gotta get reground whenever the whole tree is considered stable (i.e. no further changes likely to trunk)
asciilifeform: *when
diana_coman: hm, perhaps being a reference implementation it makes sense to remain as branch there and otherwise the tree continues along the main line (not reference)
diana_coman: but other than this, I don't see any need or point for reground
asciilifeform: concretely : ave1 releases crc32 as standalone staticable lib, like my udp. it comes with 2 pressable leaves, 'tabletronic' and 'divtronic'. you can press either and use in e.g. euloratron when building.
diana_coman: ah, you mean that the only way to do this is to take crc32 out of eucrypt tree?
asciilifeform: alternatively, both variants are physically included in euloratron tree, but then the latter has 2 pressable leaves, for the respective variants
asciilifeform: iirc mircea_popescu prefers this style to the other
asciilifeform: lessee when he wakes up
diana_coman: yes, the way I currently see it now is pretty much that: trunk (main line) goes along the production versions of all stuff (crc32 or keccak or whatever else) and otherwise at the respective points there can be additional branches /leaves with the reference implementations
diana_coman: I honestly don't quite see the point of taking crc32 out for instance
diana_coman: or keccak or whatever, basically making 5 tiny trees out of eucrypt tree
asciilifeform: part of the exercise here is to purge head of the last vestiges of dark ages 'merge-istic' versiontronics . who wants variants, gotta remember that yer pressing variants built on specific states of the trunk. ( and if trunk meanwhile changed, and you still want it, must regrind )
asciilifeform: diana_coman: iirc mircea_popescu in particular specifically hates libs-as-separate-trees, insists that proggy oughta include errything it eats. ( i dun recall whether he answered why it should not also then include the os and compiler also in same genesis, but i'ma leave thread alone for nao)
asciilifeform: he had a pretty good arg imho, tho, that when you write on top of a specific lib, you oughta freeze it in, rather than permit it to change 'under you' at any point.
diana_coman: to my mind that's pretty much the reason, yes
asciilifeform: imho 'unifiers' (i.e. patch that pulls in specific state from a parallel tree) is a cleaner way of accomplishing this than cut&paste, but i was unable to persuade.
diana_coman: ave1, thanks, it verifies fine now!
ave1: as for an alternative branch; http://ave1.org/code/eucrypt/eucrypt_crc32_divtronic.vpatch.ave1.sig and http://ave1.org/code/eucrypt/eucrypt_crc32_divtronic.vpatch.
diana_coman: asciilifeform, trouble is - what do you do then when/if that tree gets reground?
diana_coman: basically you introduce tree dependencies?
asciilifeform: diana_coman: you carry with your proggy, the specific one you built on
asciilifeform: author can regrind all he wants, you are not forced to regrind yours unless you think it merits
diana_coman: maybe I didn't understand then what you mean by "patch that pulls in specific state from a parallel tree"
asciilifeform: diana_coman: my orig v algo supported unlimited 'genesis'-en
asciilifeform: so it was possible to write a proggy that used items from multiple trees.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu specifically barfed , tho, and nobody any moar does this. so for nao yer stuck with cut&pasteism, as i understand.
diana_coman: and then you are stuck maintaining those multiple trees - what's the benefit in that?
asciilifeform: you're stuck with it even now.
asciilifeform: the diff was that the history was preserved, as opposed to painted over with cut&paste.
diana_coman: once you bring it into your tree, you don't care about the original tree so ...how stuck?
asciilifeform: that's where we differ, i think. my whole notion in inventing vtronics was to preserve all history that can be practically preserved.
diana_coman: I can see the history is preserved angle, certainly; and a nice thing for sure; but there is a cost for it and I'm not sure the benefits make up for it
diana_coman: I think the difference might be at whether it is "practical" or not :)
asciilifeform: to bring thread back to current-day -- afaik the only means to implement alternative builds, in current scheme, is 2 (or moar) pressable leaves in erry 'release' ver.
asciilifeform: and yes they'd have to be reground regularly.
asciilifeform: ada deliberately does not offer equiv of #ifdef, because ifdefism is retarded. so you're left with this method, afaik.
asciilifeform: and ideally erry 'alt' variant has a maintainer, who will regrind so that his variant continues to be usable .
diana_coman: that actually makes sense
asciilifeform: it is painful, but prolly the Right Thing.
asciilifeform: in that it prevents the combinatorial clusterfucks that ifdefism causes
asciilifeform: and instead each variant is a thing that its author is forced to actually test as-written.
ave1: hey, I was just thinking the same thing offline, so yes I think the new method is sane as it preserves authorship and no magic alternative could be inserted somewhere halfway the tree.
asciilifeform: ave1: which method is this referring to ?
ave1: with the manifest as we have now and no way to automatically merge an alternative (i.e. having more than one possible ancestor)
asciilifeform: ave1: no published vtron ever permitted 'more than one possible ancestor'
asciilifeform: it'd defeat whole point of v.
asciilifeform: all presses are deterministic , a particular leaf produces a particular press.
asciilifeform: when you want alternative presses, you gotta have multiple pressable leaves, elementarily.
ave1: well, if I have file A and B, and p1 touches A and B, and p2 touches A in the same way as p1 but B differently
ave1: then p3 touches A
asciilifeform: then p1, p2, p3 are alternative and mutually-exclusive pressable leaves.
asciilifeform: there is no ambiguity.
ave1: sorry p3 touches the A as it is after p1
ave1: so p1 -> p3 intended
ave1: but p2 -> p3 also possible it seems to me
asciilifeform: how ?
ave1: the vpatches are checked on the sha512/keccak sums of the files
asciilifeform: trinque & mircea_popescu specifically introduces manifests to prevent this scenario.
asciilifeform: ( previously it was possible to arrive at it by accident )
ave1: yes, I know, but you asked about the senario; no published vtron permitted...
asciilifeform: aa i see what ave1 meant
asciilifeform: in orig vtron i relied on 'muscle power' to avoid this boojum, it proved insufficient; hence manifests.
asciilifeform: in current day vtrons you gotta explicitly bake pressable leaves if you want alternatives.
ave1: I was still on the "automagic" way to choose either the lookup or the divtronic CRC32. Whis will never be automagic, authors just have to work on 2 different threes if they want and let the longest one survive.
ave1: Whis -> This, threes -> trees
asciilifeform: aha
asciilifeform: this is the Right Thing, i.e. if you want a variant to exist, you gotta maintain it.
ave1: yes
ave1: btw, I'm still interested in the single size ethernet packages (I propably misunderstood) but unfortunately have to bbl
asciilifeform: ave1: there is not much to be said further re subj, i looked into what actually comes out of my lan, it sends 1500 frames upstream always.
asciilifeform: ( and yes on paper ~could~ send shorter ones, but actual iron afaik never does )
asciilifeform: best analogy, imho, is sov train carriages. it is possible to make train carriage of many lengths, but they had 1 . so if cargo were smaller, it'd get packed in with other things, or sometimes partially empty car, but short car would not be specially built for shorter crate.
asciilifeform: on 1 occasion it was found necessary to build a icbm rocket that is too heavy for 1 car. head designer v. f. utkin found solution, he had a system of springs to distribute the weight between ~two~ cars. this is analogous to udp fraggism.

asciilifeform: ^ the gizmo on the right, was a hydraulic thing to push any electric wires above the tracks, out of the way. whole thing was pretty clever.
asciilifeform: ( tho expensive. )
asciilifeform: and notably, by some accounts the 'distribute the mass' gizmo did not actually work very well, hence why the thing was eventually scrapped. ( and not because 'usa asked eltsin nicely', as was the popular legend at the time )
asciilifeform: it destroyed tracks.
asciilifeform: but let's suppose utkin had instead built a rocket that occupies all but one metre of standard rail car. i suspect that it would not have been received warmly by the brass, and at the very least they'd ask why, 'what will go in that free metre of car ? tinned fish ?'
asciilifeform: this is prolly as far as the analogy goes, so i'ma leave it there.

phf: out of curiousity i went through the log, and bordeaux-threads had that bt nickname pretty much since creation, in 2006
phf: (btcbase uses 0.8.5, though i might have an older version somewhere on backup drives)
asciilifeform: phf: imho it is retarded that packages can conflict
asciilifeform: i dun see why it ougta be possible, period

asciilifeform: ( prolly The Right Thing then is to write own compat layers. for errything. but only 2 hands,sadly )
phf: asciilifeform: well, a portability layer is the ultimate ifdef, and in this case worse written by somebody else
asciilifeform: that, it is
phf: one of the major wtfs when reading asdf code, is that when all the ifdef's fall through, hte system falls back to some seriously questionable solutions, like shelling out to unix level with elaborate commands (i don't remember the example, but it's almost like "mkdir {} && cd ..." type stuff)
asciilifeform: it's actually one of the reasons i haven't ever finished rewrite of phuctor in cl. erry time i sat down to do it, barfed on one of these things
phf: but you would never know, because in sbcl it generally does the right thing
asciilifeform: right, they're mostly skins on sbcl, to the extent they work at all
phf: well, after reading the CADR documentation, source code and generally spending more time on a lisp machine, i realized that modern common lisp is a cargo cult. i'm not sure how naggum didn't see it, but possibly because his lisp was emacs/cmucl/franz
asciilifeform: aha, he had his paid allegro
phf: it's a compatability layer between lisp machines, and as such provides a minimum of coverage of common functionality.
asciilifeform: and it , afaik, worked 'like white man's tech' or near.
asciilifeform: my impression was that allegro did 'all them things not in the standard' and actually did them well.
asciilifeform: so he never had to eat the compat layer liquishit.
phf: yeah, pretty much. a totally different experience from, say, sbcl, and a lot closer to a real lisp machine too. comes with all the things builtin, so you never really need to touch outside world
asciilifeform: prolly the eventual Right Thing will be when we proclaim a republican cltron and start massaging it to eventually climb to that level.
phf: right
asciilifeform: and sbcl aint it. i'd prefer something like kyoto, or which ever was the absolute shortest that implemented whole standard, for starting point
phf: i suspect you might discover it to be same kind of situation as tinyscheme
asciilifeform: actually looking at my notes from ages past, i did, and did.
asciilifeform: sadly.
asciilifeform: would like to find something actually readable, at least, if not buildable-on.
asciilifeform: but even this may be too much to hope.
asciilifeform: phf: context : i was baking a noad walker / torturer, orig in python, little thing, thought it would be doable in a day or 2; then found that mass of prb etc all break protocol in 9000 interesting ways, an extra byte here an' there, and realized that it aint doable without adult condition handling/restarts, which means cl.
phf: aah
phf: yeah, i wrote a small subset of bitcoin protocol in lisp, but rolled my own binary types. i think i can ask for version, and i can also ask for peers, and i started on getblock functionality..
asciilifeform: that's approx where i left off, aha
asciilifeform: worx ok with trb. but heathens do all kinds of weird things, throw up various garbage in place of e.g. getaddr answer
asciilifeform: or disconnect in the middle of things, etc
asciilifeform: phf: i was aiming for 3 basic things : 1) recursively getaddr entire reachable btc net, perhaps erry hour or so 2) find trb-compat (i.e. 'services' == 1 ) non-pseudos (i.e. if i pull block hash out of a hat, he quickly gives correct block) and eventually 3) get inv's and monitor tx propagations.
asciilifeform: the heathen node-viewing www's systematically lie, e.g. conceal 'too old' clients , present fucking pseudos as if they were actual nodes, and commit other war crimes
asciilifeform: i'd like a (ideally real-time) picture of the actual network.
asciilifeform: this line of thought was prompted by my 'trb observatory', which has uncovered a number of 'mpb'-style nodes, i.e. trb-like but not presenting 'modern' vers and therefore invisible from heathen www indices
phf: i wonder what sort of technology those heathen node walkers use, i.e. if it's a patched up bitcoin client, or if they have own protocol parsers. seems like too much serious know how for the later
asciilifeform: phf: hell knows, prolly kilometres of java
asciilifeform: written in bangalore
asciilifeform: with 9000-deep of-else'en.
asciilifeform: *if
asciilifeform: phf: essence of hypothesis, is that the ~actual~ bitcoin network looks nothing at all like what 'nodes.io' or other heathen scamola, try to pass off

phf: the other thing, and that's somewhat of a personal preference, i think Create_Temporary_File should either act identical to create or be called something else. right now it clashes with ada's naming convention
phf: (when i proposed the name i was thinking that it will be a wrapper around http://www.ada-auth.org/standards/rm12_w_tc1/html/RM-A-8-1.html#p6
phf: but without the name, so you call it, and you get an open file right away, rather than dragging around a useless name)
phf: oh i guess i see why that would be tricky, because of the specialization. i don't know enough ada yet to know how to fix that... perhaps just renaming it to Temporary_File is sufficient

mircea_popescu: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-10-14#1862386 << not at all! there's two possible ways to implement crc32 : with lookup tables, and with plain division. these are mutually exclusive. type 1 is faster, and therefore mainline. type 2 is smaller, and therefore of interest in certain contexts. therefore, at leaf=n, one has to chose : either n+1 type 1, or else n+1 type 2.
a111: Logged on 2018-10-14 16:11 diana_coman: ah, you mean that the only way to do this is to take crc32 out of eucrypt tree?
mircea_popescu: the leaves downstream from EACH n1 needn't be identical, nor needn't be different. in effect, the tree now has TWO groups of maintainers : those who maintain type 2 tree, for embeds, will not === those who maintain type 1 tree, for general use.
mircea_popescu: IF the groups ever diverge absolutely, they MIGHT eventually re-genesis the thing, making all leaves 1...n into a unified genesis and continuing from there.
mircea_popescu: but while there's overlap of people contributing to both type 1 and type 2 branches, it's more likely the situation will continue unground.
mircea_popescu: in any case, type1 might get i dunno, later-patch-taking-advantage-of-ddram whereas type 2 might get later-patch-needed-for-old-arms etc.
