< bralyclow> where did all the admins go?
< meshcollider> bralyclow: what do you mean?
< bralyclow> there are no admins listed in my userlist with @ in front of their usernames
< bralyclow> op if you prefer to admin
< Guest58070> bralyclow: can you take this to #bitcoin. you're clearly mistaken, there's never ops in this channel.
< sipa> there are a number of people with oo rights here, but they just get the op whenever needed
< phantomcircuit> bralyclow, i ate them
< phantomcircuit> NOM NOM
< gmaxwell> can we remove +r please? other channels seem fine without it.
< promag> it's quiet.. too quiet
< wumpus> phantomcircuit: unfortunately, no
< gmaxwell> The removal of the new address button in the address book seems to be confusing many people, so far I've seen two questions on IRC and this BCT post: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5047632.msg46723437#msg46723437
< promag> gmaxwell: also #14435
< gribble> https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/issues/14435 | Missing New button on create new receiving addresses screen · Issue #14435 · bitcoin/bitcoin · GitHub
< gmaxwell> seems also from IRC comments the net effect of this may be forcing address reuse. :(
< promag> we should have a UI to show UI changes like "What'ss New in 0.17"
< gmaxwell> Or just record a screencast and link it in the release notes.
< gmaxwell> probably that change should have turned the new button into a popup that tells you where to go. Live and learn.
< promag> I know, let's create -deprecateui=newaddressbutton ..
< tradermyx> Whoa. I just noticed that the pruning feature is actually part of the GUI options now.
< tradermyx> Kind of unexpected as I got the feeling that you didn't want that to be used too much.
< tradermyx> (Because it somehow compromises the integrity of the network.)
< gmaxwell> It doesn't harm the network.
< gmaxwell> It's incompatible with loading saved walets or keys however, since you can't rescan.
< tradermyx> gmaxwell: How come it's not on by default?
< tradermyx> Hmm.
< tradermyx> So basically, once you start pruning, you cannot switch wallet.dats without having to re-download 200+ GB?
< tradermyx> I just noticed that a program I temporarily used (Armory?) modified bitcoin.conf to set a rpcuser and rpcpassword (but not anything else). I thought the rpcbind and rpcport options were what actually "enabled" the RPC API? But it's enough to just specify the username/password?
< tradermyx> Interesting find: Bitcoin Core fails to start if bitcoin.conf contains: wallet = "wallet.dat"
< tradermyx> You must type it without the quotes for some bizarre reason.
< tradermyx> (But this doesn't apply to any other options, apparently.)
< tradermyx> Or maybe it does, and that's why it doesn't work...
< tradermyx> But the point is that it only barked about the wallet line.
< * tradermyx> pokes everyone in the room with a long stick.
< gmaxwell> tradermyx: I'm not sure how familar you are with computers, but it's very typical for a parser like thing to bail out on the first syntax error it hits.
< gmaxwell> It's feindishly complex to continue to report things after hitting a parsing error, attempting to do so often results in returning a lot of confusing junk.
< rafalcpp> coughcppcompilerscough
< tradermyx> gmaxwell: My wallet directive is far down in the config, though.
< tradermyx> "Failed to connect to port 8332: Connection refused" is the cURL error I get logged. Weird. I've done this before, so I'm really wondering what I'm missing this time.
< rafalcpp> tradermyx: this channel is rather for develpoing Bitcoin. As for using it, #bitcoin
< tradermyx> #bitcoin :Cannot send to nick/channel
< rafalcpp> tradermyx: this, and set of out problem, have intersection of size 0
< tradermyx> Seems to me that IRC users are hellbent on killing every last ounce of activity.
< tradermyx> So fucking sick of hearing how *everything* is "off-topic".

< booyah> Browsing bitcoincore.org when suddenly "Share on Google+" :)
< TD-Linux> why does bitcoincore.org have embedded trackers?
< TD-Linux> oh nvm they are just buttons, not tracking buttons
