I guess if I really care about BW, I'll make it try a non-http connection and fall back to http + websockets..

Really annoying thing is, I'm only using http because of port blocking. We can tunnel anything over http websockets, which makes port blocking irrelevant, at a cost of many extra bytes. And of course that reduces pressure for ISPs to not block ports. Progress.

Wireshark says yes.. A 183 byte websocket frame contains 95 bytes or so of data. And then there are some 86 byte TCP ACKs..

websocket overhead

Does sending a message to a websocket really use 250 bytes of bandwidth for websocket stuff? Seems to in my tests..

Annoying ... I've relentlessly whittled my protocol down to 75 byte packets from 170+ using some fairly serious hackery. And now all this additional overhead!

close squeeze

After detouring around the flood this morning, my detour was almost flooded this evening. Only one lane of dry highway left.

64+64=64

Thought of a way to squeeze both a 64 byte previous message hash and a 64 byte signature into a message, using only 64 bytes.

Just leave out the previous message hash from the serialized message, but include it in the data that's signed. When verifying the signature, try recently seen messages's hashes as the previous message until finding the one that makes the signature verify. (Conveniently, Ed25519 verifies very fast and can do batch verifications.)

Ah, math..

I'm on several pubs, my impression is that at least the public ssb network is fairly well connected and it should not matter even if you ended up on different ones, I'd still see you.

It's a 3 hop gossip network, and pubs count as hops, so me -- mypub -- yourpub -- you works because 3 hops. Assuming our pubs are connected, and the pubs I can see are all interconnected.

scuttlebutt

Playing with scuttlebutt for the first time today. Very impressive.

Very appropriately, I met one of its developers in a pub IRL.

busywork

Doing taxes, sending invoices, cleaning house, mowing yard, finishing Tumbleweed Park.

Looking forward to more significant work tomorrow..

brain re-engaged

Either I'm finally over the 48 hour flu, or finally found the right meds to mask the symptoms. Anyway, I can think again.

(Modern games have this strange habit of tracking how much time you wasted with them, so I know I played Thimbleweed park for 11 hours yesterday. I even remember most of it, but I was clearly not compos mentis.)

sundown stream

Sun is down, satellite internet is still up! Turns out there are few things more annoying than losing internet when the sun goes behind some object.

The DROK DC-DC booster solved it. I had originally planned to use it instead of the DC power supply, but that led to very loud coil whine not suitable for use. Don't understand why. Using the DROK to power an inverter, which then gets converted back to DC is not efficient, but at least it works. (And I tuned it so the inverter never spins its fan, so perhaps it's not super innefficient.)

Probably will switch to a better inverter that can handle lower voltages on its own.

My mom gives this talk high marks.

watch this!

Has Sumana Harihareswara invented a new form of presentation? her LibrePlanet keynote was a menu of 35 lightening talks, with the audience selecting between them.

Planning to rewatch this, it went so fast and there was so much in there. Also, got a little bit busy with politicking that resulted in the final pick of #15.

She could give this talk a dozen times and it would be a dozen different experiences I'll bet.
