00:11 shinohai thimbronion: is specific version of python required to run ?
~ 28 minutes ~
00:39 billymg << regarding the wp code viewer, users unfortunately must manually escape html characters (see this footnote containing a sed script which handles all the offending characters)
00:39 dulapbot Logged on 2021-07-30 18:14:24 shinohai: thimbronion: Can has plaintext of alcuin code? I still am unable to get properly formatted code trying to copy from WP page.
00:41 billymg but otherwise i copy/pasted what thimbronion has in his post and diffed it against the genesis he added and there was only one line that got munged L318
00:45 thimbronion shinohai: I'm using python 2.7 from inside pyenv.
00:46 thimbronion billymg: I manually escaped those two right brackets - I guess the escaping doesn't get escaped!
00:46 billymg thimbronion: i'm also using this extra bit of css to widen the code blocks, which i think improves legibility quite a bit, e.g. here
00:47 billymg thimbronion: haha yeah, not that kind of escaping
00:47 billymg needs to be the html kind, e.g. &rsqb;
00:48 thimbronion ooooooh ok.
00:54 shinohai thanx thimbronion will try from inside pyenv, got "ImportError: No module named lib.server" otherwise :/
00:57 thimbronion shinohai: it appears that one particular file didn't make it into the diff. You need an empty file inside the lib dir for imports to work.
00:57 thimbronion I'm not sure why vdiff would have skipped that file.
01:00 thimbronion shinohai: here's a tarball that has everything:
01:07 shinohai Hmm when I did the genesis I got a `lib/` directory and it contains:
01:07 shinohai __pycache__
01:07 shinohai so yeah missing the init
01:09 shinohai aha thimbronion just `touch` indeed fixed it thanx
01:15 shinohai I'm guessing because diff ignores empty files is reason that didn't make it into genesis.
~ 3 hours 1 minutes ~
04:17 signpost you'll have to put a single space in it for vdiff to bother with it
04:17 signpost I had the same problem with pentacle; there's a hilarious number of empty files in gnat+deps
~ 3 hours 51 minutes ~
08:09 punkman << also consider that you need some file contents to hash with V.

08:11 punkman do any of the Vs handle duplicate file contents with different file names?
~ 3 hours 44 minutes ~
11:55 shinohai << good point, perhaps add comment to init file to accomplish this since empty file anyway.

~ 2 hours 8 minutes ~
14:03 thimbronion Anyone know how to get vdiff to ignore a file, like .git, for example?
14:13 thimbronion davout: belated reply to your comment:
14:14 thimbronion The comment spam has gotten bad recently.

16:38 cgra looks like trb may be susceptible to a trivial DoS -- getting greeted by a pile of bloated agent strings, ~10MB each.
16:38 cgra version parsing doesn't specifically limit the agent string size; GetRefCount() is special and plays a part; all the stale peer details (agent strings included) get kept in RAM for extra 15 minutes, after being disconnected (vNodesDisconnected).
16:38 cgra it worked on my local node, so not yet tested in the wild. anyone willing to lend a node for target practice?
16:38 cgra the issue was apparently handled in prb in 2014, by prohibiting agent strings beyond 256 bytes. the simplest fix i can imagine off-hand, is just truncating the agent string. i could't find any use of it, so could even truncate to just 32 bytes.
~ 15 minutes ~
16:54 asciilifeform cgra: this noad oughta make a suitable target.

17:26 cgra asciilifeform: a modest row of 10 bombs apparently sank in, wasn't sure whether ok to sink the whole ship or not
17:27 cgra i used 950000-byte agent strings
17:28 cgra sorry, 9500000-byte

20:29 asciilifeform cgra: still floating apparently ?
20:29 cgra asciilifeform: yeah, no serious damage attempted
20:29 asciilifeform cgra: feed it until falls down, lessee if actual leak or not
20:30 cgra ok, sec
20:30 asciilifeform a la 'wedger'
20:30 dulapbot Logged on 2020-02-26 16:13:05 asciilifeform: bvt: ; and use with or hash file of same format of your choice.
20:31 cgra asciilifeform: my bomber is based on just that :)

20:34 asciilifeform apparently not oom ?
20:34 cgra can you easily watch ram usage?
20:35 asciilifeform if it's a troo leak, wedger-style, oughta be able to fill it neh
20:35 asciilifeform cgra: not from where currently sitting, unfortunately
20:36 cgra asciilifeform: ok
20:36 asciilifeform leave it to loop, why not, then !w probe etc. later in the day
20:36 cgra asciilifeform: how much ram there?
20:37 asciilifeform cgra: 4GB
20:37 asciilifeform typically about half full (nuffin but trb on that box)
20:37 cgra now down apparently
20:37 asciilifeform !w probe
20:37 watchglass : Could not connect!
20:37 asciilifeform a++ cgra
20:37 asciilifeform how many shots took ?
20:37 cgra (or busy doing smth else...)
20:38 asciilifeform nah if 'could not connect' means process killed.
20:38 cgra asciilifeform: "a bunch", my methods weren't easily measurable
20:40 asciilifeform ftr the linked prb patch against this booby -- sucks. instead oughta simply reject variable-length entities above 1e6 bytes (block size) ~and~ drop any peer which exhausts some arbitarry memory usage (say, 2 sd above avg)

20:40 cgra asciilifeform: i suspect this is not even limited to the agent string, deeper down issue is possibly the std::vector "capacity" concept.
20:42 asciilifeform aha
20:42 asciilifeform the prb people, very characteristically, plugged wrong end of funnel.
20:42 asciilifeform (how else to ~create~ the next exploitable 5 bugs...)
20:44 asciilifeform cgra: 'EXCEPTION: St9bad_alloc' 'bitcoin in ThreadSocketHandler()' as expected.
20:45 cgra right
20:46 asciilifeform cgra: feel free to abuse that box further if you find it convenient.
20:46 asciilifeform it's what it is there for.
20:47 cgra asciilifeform: ok, thanks! does it need you to stand up if tripped?
20:48 asciilifeform cgra: it does but i dun much care if it sits for a night
20:48 * asciilifeform deliberately does not set these to auto-restart, it makes watching for this sort of thing trickier
20:49 asciilifeform not erryone with a pill against trb helpfully brings it to #a !
20:49 asciilifeform (the previous wedger for instance did not)

23:14 lobbes asciilifeform: just to update you: I haven't forgotten about getting logbot and auctionbot connected to arsenet (as well as setting up an ircd). I ended up quitting current saltmine and am in the process of selling house for hopefully a profit. I will be MIA for a bit longer
23:14 lobbes once re-established a home base of operations, I'll be able to sort some things out
