On Todays Show Matthew Zipkin speaks with Rusty Russell of Blockstream about his work on the Lightning Network. They talk what it is, what it does, how it does it, why it matters and when it'll be something you're actually using.

Did a podcast interview on Software Engineering Daily, covering #bitcoin #sidechains and #lightning .  It's fairly high-level, for a general audience, and there's a little bit in the tail about the cultural differences between Linux and Bitcoin.

Podcast: Play in new window | Download. A sidechain is a blockchain you can move bitcoins into and back from, which may have different abilities than the bitcoin blockchain. The lightning network is a caching layer for bitcoin, which allows instant sending and failover to the normal bitcoin ...

At this point we are trying all angles. Looking more like an IRQ  lock issue. It could just be the driver. The SFP is another idea I had.

I remember some of the early Linux kernel debates; they were pretty heated, too.  But this #blocksize #bitcoin debate is qualitatively worse; at least in Linux, Linus kept debates centred upon engineering questions: how could we do XYZ with minimal suckage?

I wrote a roadmap for what technical issues we'd need to solve to enlarge the bitcoin blocksize while minimizing centralization risk.  But I haven't published it because I fear the debate has gotten too polarised and toxic for meaningful contributions, and I'm better off ignoring it and keeping my head down.

Hey, I'm just a minor code contributor, says right here on the label!

I'm going to lose this battle, but dammit, I'll fight to prevent my code from ugly hacks:

https://gcc.gnu.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=66425
Yes, a repeat of 2005's https://gcc.gnu.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=25509 The world, especially glibc and the Linux kernel, have adopted __wur with a passion, taking it well outside the "must" case (basically, realloc and nothing else) into the "should" case. For better or worse.

"I am not forcing you to do anything. You (or others) are forcing yourself..." - it's sad that somebody presumably speaking on behalf of gcc developers is using that cop out instead of listening to arguments :(

Spent last night putting the finishing touches on the #lightning channel open prototype. Was pretty happy when bitcoind finally accepted my pair of transactions.

Spent today writing code trying to get my 500 test bitcoins back :)

Next time, I'll stick with -maxconnections=0.

I'm going to be in Montreal next month for https://scalingbitcoin.org/montreal2015/. I hope to leave with a sharpened idea of what we can do to push bitcoin along. Of course I have my own ideas, but I really want to keep an open mind.

I can imagine some furious work between Montreal and Hong Kong though...

I'm still a fan of MagicShine MJ808U(Cree XM-L2): around $80 USD for light + Li-Ion battery pack. It weighs more than DIng but offers ~700 lumens for forward lighting and much longer run time. Works well for both on and off-road. I'm still happily using the older MJ808E (Cree XML -> ~600 lumens) almost 3-4 years after I bought them.

Papers please! Or something...
 
So apparently the LCA CFP went out yesterday.  I guess this needs a wider distribution?
