mod6: <+BingoBoingo> In europe bird hunters hit at extreme range because they use 1, 2, or 4 gauge "punt guns", US maxes out at 10 and 12 gauge for the reason that ducks respond to bigger guns by just flying higher and then arms race << huh. yeah those would be huge.

asciilifeform: meanwhile, in shitcoinistan, https://zcoin.io/language/en/important-announcement-zerocoin-implementation-bug
asciilifeform: 'We estimate the attacker has created about 370,000 Zcoins which has been almost completely sold except for about 20,000+ Zcoin and absorbed on the market with a profit of around 410 BTC. In other words, the damage has already been mostly absorbed by the markets.'
mircea_popescu: aww.
mircea_popescu: "absorbed by the markets" huh.
asciilifeform: ABSORBED! didjaknow.
mircea_popescu: well no cause for alarm then.
mircea_popescu: hopefully this starts popping up in "rape" cases : your honor, the seminal fluid was already mostly absorbed by the alleged victim's uterus.
asciilifeform: and also 'attacker' and definitely not 'aaah but we kept the magic inflatron key, what, idiot, you believed that we burned it?!'
mircea_popescu: oh no, but i read on a website...

mod6: omfg
diana_coman: selected delights from planeOfshit
mod6: im like...
mod6: thanks for all your hard work on Eulora.
mod6: i just read your article, nice write up. I'm stunned at what you're saying there.
diana_coman: thanks! got a bit of it out basically; in any case, eulora server is being gradually rebuilt and ps will be entirely discarded
mod6: my mind boggles at how they even have this setup. for instance, in my mind, if you were going to have say, 30 different types of hats in the game, there would be a simple, abstract hat class.
diana_coman: it really took me months to accept the evidence that "abstract" is something entirely unknown there
mod6: from there, you would extend the abstract hat, and provide whatever implementations required, including whatever x/y points or whatnot to draw the thing...
mod6: it sounds like this is /far/ from such a design.
diana_coman: sure, they have classes and classes inheriting classes and so on and so forth, but as to the reasons for inheritance...
mod6: so ya, sounds like there is really no design pattern, or at lesat not a discernable one 'eh
mod6: like 'builder' or 'composition' etc etc.
diana_coman: ahahah, design patterns, what, reading books next ? programming, yo!
diana_coman: social coding thing I suspect
mod6: haha
mod6: my mind reels at what the whole slot location mechinism.
diana_coman: myeah, that was cherry on top
mod6: some nasty type of pointer arithmatic or whatever 'eh?
diana_coman: I suppose I should be grateful it is done with numbers straight rather than pointers too
mod6: well, someone may suppose that you'd rather smashed in the head with a simple rock, or this here complex ax head.
mod6: nice call graph too.
mod6: i think that kinda illustrates what you need to contend with.
mod6: you're basically a saint.
mod6: let me know if i can help somehow.
diana_coman: hopefully won't end up thrown to the lions though :))
diana_coman: thanks! :)
mod6: not on my watch.
mod6: anytime. :]
asciilifeform: diana_coman: spiffy article, good illustration of the kind of affair ada was built to prevent
diana_coman: asciilifeform, thanks!
asciilifeform: (for instance, prohibits pointer arithmetic, or even the use of a pointer in any context other than where it was born; or to any item not in advance marked pointable-at.)
diana_coman: aha, I had a bit of a look at ada but sadly no time to properly play around with it; I'm looking forward though to your ada implementations
asciilifeform: diana_coman: i will be releasing a small proggy quite soon.
trinque: imagine that this tangling of classes happens in the sinner skulls before disgracing code
trinque: and they just let people walk around like that!
asciilifeform: trinque: there is no tangle properly speaking ~in~ their skull. when proggy no longer fits in head, programming turns into a brute physical, rather than intellectual activity
trinque: they're not incompatible points, really
mod6: the graph, suggests, to me, that the entire thing is very tightly coupled.
trinque: I worked on a very sad qt project once upon a time
trinque: class graph looked like a rat king
trinque: and asciilifeform is right that the sheer mass of the thing made it impossible to lift into one's head
mod6: as far as this knot of ps, or the qt thing?
trinque: but also there were plenty of idiots that could not think clearly about the problem in the abstract either, i.e. there is a board, it is to be carved along these paths, so on
trinque: qt thing itself was an abominable nightmare of a hacked together carve-path drawing tool
mod6: eek
ben_vulpes: ahaha diana_coman i salute you that is some serious archaeology
diana_coman: ben_vulpes, cheers!
diana_coman: mod6, "tight coupling" would be a very ....british way of putting it: I think trinque has it there with "rat king"
mod6: heheh.
diana_coman: and yes, fwiw I don't think they bothered with having anything in their heads, not by the looks of it: hey, it WORKS, right?
mod6: "they have oatmeal in their heads"
ben_vulpes: footnote 3 is a gorgeous little sentence, i don't think i've ever seen the like from a native english speaker
asciilifeform: it is a mistake to describe the agglomerative type of 'programming' as product of 'thought'. it is more similar to what dung beetle does.
mod6: aha

diana_coman: mircea_popescu, yes, I think asciilifeform is quite right there - I *saw* "programmers" doing exactly that in fact
mircea_popescu: i suspect everyone kind-of knows this which is why specific items such as "mysql" or "xml" or what have you are so heavy tinged with aversity pheromones.
mircea_popescu: but irl, they just happen to be items with vast online documentation. so a lot of dung to snatch, as it were.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: e.g., ada refmanual & rationale, whole talmud, is also on www... but somehow 0 rush to snatch dung
asciilifeform: it ain't the 'well-documentedness' that attracts.
asciilifeform: also must be shit. for the beetle to smell.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform recall me trying to comprehend lisp and saying the documentation is absent ?
mircea_popescu: same principle. TO THEM they might as well not be there, because in the abstract

mircea_popescu: asciilifeform was discussion in ben_vulpes 's castle.
asciilifeform: so then 'massive trove of snippetage', rather than 'documentation' -- attracts.
mircea_popescu: aha.
mircea_popescu: it's i realise now, directly the problem - the snippetage.

mircea_popescu: and so they attempt to built a career through the process and in the manner that built their "education".
mircea_popescu: functionalistic culture. "i don't have to understand how fridge works as long as i know which door to open" is the first step to "and then i made the hay airplane but presents didn't drop from sky" after all.
mircea_popescu: and "i just want to" is the mantra humming along, all of it.

mod6: (im much more familiar with mysql's perf schema, not really with psql, but... I find these things very helpful on a regular basis.)
mod6: so, UIs are usually victims, ofc. and the bottleneck is in the database. might be worth your time to see what your explain plans look like (are we doing a lot of table scans?), what do your lock counts look like? are we doing lots of long runing queries that return no rows? etc.
asciilifeform: mod6: well, every single new key submission is from 1 to a dozen no-result queries
mod6: it would be interesting to see, how often inserts are happening for new key submissions versus, say, something that would facilitate a regular ui page load.
asciilifeform: mod6: they happen constantly
asciilifeform: because the Framedragger data set is pumped in 24/7.
mod6: aha.
asciilifeform: incidentally i measured the thing in between Framedragger parcels
asciilifeform: still slow.
asciilifeform: the db is intrinsic bottleneck.
mod6: are you doing row-level locking?
asciilifeform: i have nfi what that means
mod6: (my guess here, is that you're inserting heavily on the same table as you are trying to read from)
asciilifeform: well noshit
mod6: and if you're doing (what might be default in pgsql) some sort of full table locking on inserts, then that'd be something to look at.
asciilifeform: we had a thread, where mircea_popescu suggested inserting in massive batches. i will eventually implement this. but i find it offputting that EVEN THEN the IDIOTIC db will prevent me from reading !!!
