As someone currently on permavacation I agree Americans are overworked. And then I see Frenchies protest because they have to work 3 hours a day instead of 2 and it's like "hmm"

there are many business links, it's hard to explain how geneva is fills up with wealthy arabs during the summer, some will even fly over their favourite car, so it's common to see plates from the emirates on mclaren mercedes or custom lambos. the city courts this clientele because they often have their family offices based in geneva and happen to spend a lot of money during their stay, along with the chinese they are big spending tourists. the swiss like money, they don't ever let race or ethics get in the way of that.

Yeah, it's like I said: the country is awesome if you're wealthy, regardless of race. But if you're just a working class shmuck and you don't have the right racial profile then good luck to you. And I'll grant you that Geneva was considerably more pleasant and less racist than Bern or Zurich, but that's probably because of the large expat population. And I'll also admit that I haven't lived anywhere in Europe outside of Switzerland (or extremely close to the Swiss border in some cases), so the racism that I saw there may have just been normal by European standards

Remember when someone proposed that we ban the construction of new mosques, and that passed by overwhelming majority? Yeah that totally wasn't racist or just a generally lovely thing to do.

If "everything can be hacked" then your ePlug can be broken into, which would give a malicious individual access to those environmental sensors, which would then allow them to invade your privacy. Risk profile.

Now you see why I'm so anal about the security of it. Existing IoT devices have proven themselves to be even more hackable, they don't use any blockchain technology whatsoever, nevermind MindSafe or Ethereum tech. Banks, CDN's and ISP's hate those guys I'm sure.

I totally agree. We put two 90 degree motion sensors in there along with the temp and light sensor. Combine that with the rt clock and timer and I just couldn't find a way to make it any more customizable than that. We'll be uploading all of the code to gitchain too so it can be hacked and forked. I want the ePlugs to be as open as possible so if frign google or somebody comes in and tries to close them up and implement control structures again that we could just fork it and never have to use their closed systems again. Believe me I have thought long and hard about what they will try to do to me when this thing gets picked up by the mainstream. I have a family ya know so disrupting has its ugly side too.

[–]kenCode[S] -3 points 4 days ago
Agreed, I think the mining side of the ePlug is probably it's weakest point right now because of the limitations that we have with cpu horsepower. It's a nice addon if the ePlug isn't doing anything else at the moment, but the real coin will come from farming out it's unused resources, I mean like how much hard drive space do you have available right now? I'd say I have like 40% of my hard drive space is totally free, so why not farm out the excess for it and get paid in crypto. I want to get crypto into the mainstream masses too, not just meshnet. If we all start using crypto currencies, what will happen to the euro, dollar, yen and such? Exactly. The people can rule once again. Man, I'm with ya. It's only vaporware if nobody wants something like this. I'm just a guy who works at home, loves his little girls and wants to change the world and with something like this I really think we can do it. Get both crypto and meshnet out there. The banks, google, isp's, i'm sure they all hate my idea too.

[–]kenCode[S] 0 points 4 days ago
thank you so much, its good to feel appreciated. this thing has been fun and a frign nightmare at the same time. google wants to kill me and the investors are afraid because of it. just spread the word, please. if i can get even one mainstream media outlet to air meshnet in a good light then the ePlugs can really take off. peace

Like seriously sometimes people say "bitcoin is dumb but blockchains are an interesting technology", but they really aren't since the whole "distributed mining will keep them safe" thing has been tried and failed and multiple times a single actor got majority control and the only reason it's not like that now is friendly agreement/posting some blocks under a different pool name.

CampingCarl posted:

I just went and checked the paper again. Perhaps "running total" was a poor choice of words because the total could be spread over more than one block, but you still only need those blocks where the address is involved. Say there is a transaction that spends all of A to B in a block, then later in a second block there is a transaction from B to C. For the wallet software to find the value of C it doesn't require the first block, only the second. If that first block contains only that one transaction you could delete it entirely.

It does make me curious exactly how many blocks are completely spent and just take up space.

the problem with pruning the blockchain by just discarding blocks is that you now have no way to verify some malicious node hasn't given you faulty blocks. as it currently stands, by keeping every block since the dawn of time, you can verify all interim blocks are "the real blockchain" by comparing them to the previous block. if you start stripping out "useless" blocks lol all of them right you have a blockchain full of holes, unlike a real chain which is, well, okay, it's like a blockrope, and

seriously the implementation of the blockchain is at best a horrible tech demo, just like everything else in bitcoin, and it's fixed by mentioning how it could be fixed on the wiki, just like everything else in bitcoin.
