13:34--- User: *** Redgore_ is now known as Redgore
13:38* EFudd hmmms
13:39Redgore the site says you accept Visa does that include Visa Electron ?
13:45probonic Redgore: I doubt it
13:45probonic Redgore: Although having said that I may be wrong - seem to remember people being able to use VE's as normal Visa's
13:46Redgore will be worth a try then
13:46* adamg waits for his mail queue to flush through
13:47adamg Redgore: the easiest thing to do is try
13:47adamg and email caker as well
13:47Redgore its one of those odd cards
13:47adamg I can remeber if it is a uk only card or not
13:48adamg if it is uk only it wont accept it
13:48probonic I know there's Electron in other EU countries
13:48adamg same as switch and solo arnt accepted
13:48probonic i think they have it in Spain
13:48probonic yeah but I do remember Electron was a bit of a special case
13:49probonic but like adamg said, Redgore, give it a try
13:49adamg I know that under my UK merchant accounts it is listed seperatly
13:50probonic I wish non-UK companies could accept UK debit cards :-(
13:50probonic It's a pain in the arse having to use credit cards sometimes
13:50adamg they should be able to soon
13:50adamg since switch and solo are disappearing
13:50adamg changing into delta I think
13:51adamg it is strange as switch and solo are owned by mastercard and use the same clearing network
13:52Redgore t electron cards are also odd in that the issuing bank can deny its use online even for sites that accept it as a whole
13:52Redgore I dont believe they can do that for solo and switch
13:53adamg they can do it for any card, as long as the issuing banks system can set it up, the clearing networks support it
13:56sun_music adamg, what's caker e-mail ?
13:56adamg it is on the website
14:04@caker hey guys
14:05BB yo caker
14:05sun_music hello caker
14:05sun_music I have ordered a 64 MB Linode
14:06@caker sun_music: username?
14:07sun_music my name is : Tunay Ko\xE7
14:07sun_music himm, my username was tunay
14:07probonic adamg: So can companies who can take normal Visa credit cards also take Visa Delta debit cards then?
14:10eurozip anyone know how to clear all of exim's frozen messages?
14:10eurozip ver 3.x
14:10@caker sun_music: all set - thanks
14:11sun_music caker, Thank you very mcuh
14:11sun_music *much
14:11CaptSwaggerPa| eurozip: mailq |
14:11CaptSwaggerPa| awk 'BEGIN { RS="" } $6 == "frozen" { print $3 }' |
14:11CaptSwaggerPa| xargs -r sudo exim -Mrm
14:11CaptSwaggerPa| erm
14:12CaptSwaggerPa| adjust according to your set up
14:12eurozip thx
14:12sun_music My friend suggested you.
14:12sun_music He said that You were the best !
14:13eurozip capt, how would I delete all msgs from the mailq?
14:14CaptSwaggerPa| in the awk line take out '$6 == "frozen"'
14:14EFudd tunay, linode isn't bad!
14:14sun_music i did not say "bad".
14:14EFudd i know !
14:15EFudd linode is very good! i was agreeing. English is very poor.
14:16sun_music caker, i ordered some extra services for my server, will it show in my statement next month, or this month ?
14:17EFudd ROTFL. "Windows is unable to open .PST. Would you like to use the Web to find out what program can open this?"
14:18@caker sun_music: in this one, most likely
14:18EFudd mind you, it's *clearly* marked in the UI as "Office Data File" with the "outlook" icon :)
14:18sun_music ok thank you very much
14:19eurozip Message 1B8Dip-0005F6-00 is locked
14:19sun_music it is very cool that we can install a dist anytime we want ;9
14:19eurozip how can I remove that one?
14:19sun_music ;)
14:20eurozip log says spool file is locked, another process in handling this message
14:20sun_music caker, last question do you allow IRCD hosting ?
14:20@caker sun_music: yes, that's fine :)
14:20* EFudd gets scared
14:21@caker sun_music: aren't you glad you asked now that you've already bought it? :)
14:21EFudd ow. i bit my tongue.
14:21sun_music no no
14:21sun_music if you allow , i will run
14:22sun_music or you dont , i wont :)

14:33sun_music caker, when will we able to install FreeBSD ?
14:33@caker sun_music: never -- this is Linux based
14:34sun_music sorry sorry
14:34@caker no probn
14:34sun_music my mistake :)
14:34Redgore they need to make umbsd
14:36jax you can be the project leader
14:37* Redgore laughs
14:37Redgore can hardly manage my own projects let alone something that would need a team of about 20

15:14* EFudd stops kicking mikegrb
15:15Redgore what config tool does the debian install have ?
15:15@mikegrb ;)
15:15EFudd Any idea what $|++; actually sets?
15:15chris Makes $l = $l + 1
15:15@inkblot it sets you up the bomb
15:15@inkblot chris, pipe not l
15:16EFudd No. It's setting some parsing option in perl.. probably in perlvars
15:16CaptSwaggerPa| the IO bomb
15:16EFudd doing a code review. i'll look it up :P
15:16CaptSwaggerPa| it's IO flushing
15:16EFudd gracias
15:16chris oh, it's a pipe
15:16EFudd no buffering on io
15:16@mikegrb flsuhing yes
15:16@inkblot $| If set to nonzero, forces a flush right away and after every write or print on the currently selected out-
15:16@mikegrb sorry other window I was in

15:30EFudd i have,com,edu,etc. it's staying. :P
15:30Tenkawa good
15:30BB wow - did you get drunk ? (i normaly find thats when i have bright ideas and buy domain names)
15:30chris Tenkawa: Check your aim once in a while
15:30EFudd is older tho.
15:30Tenkawa chris: I do
15:30EFudd BB, no. I've had since 97. and since 96.. my older hosts got stolen a few years ago.
15:31EFudd back in 'teh day' you didn't have to pay in advance for domain registrations. :)
15:31BB EFudd awe, i was hoping to find anothe rlike me with loads of domains and no uses for them
15:31EFudd well, I have my fair share. :)
15:31EFudd i currently only hold 15 domains
15:31BB heh my first was in 99 i think, we got DoS'd bigtime was great fun
15:32EFudd i will be letting a few of them expire tho
15:32BB i let about 10 expire per year, but i still keep getting drunk and registering them

15:42@caker < EFudd> back in 'teh day' you didn't have to pay in advance for domain registrations. :)
15:42@caker I had *hundreds* of domains
15:42@caker tried to ebay them, nothing ever panned out :)
15:43@caker I remember making a little web form that sent the email template for me
15:43@caker BB: you need to become your own registrar!
15:44BB caker i deal direct with nominet and use bulkregister for the rest heh
15:51EFudd caker, ha. I had an irc alias /register :)
15:51EFudd my father used to bulk forward me NetSol bills
15:51EFudd they'd arrive 20+ at a time :)
15:53@caker exactly
15:53@inkblot Registrant:
15:53@inkblot Bronson K. Edwards University
15:53@inkblot cute
15:53EFudd the fokker who owns can suckadiq too. (my original 1994 domain. hijacked)
15:53EFudd inkblot, /nods :) and now grandfatherd.
15:55@inkblot what do you have to do to get a .edu domain?
15:55EFudd You can't anymore.
15:55@inkblot oh
15:56EFudd it used to be managed by netsol.....
15:56EFudd so it was just social engineering.
15:56@inkblot i see
15:56@inkblot so it's highly unlikely that anyone will ever register, then
15:56EFudd when educause took over, they setup new rules (well, enforced the old ones) and made a decision to grandfather the old ones "for now"
15:56EFudd it's possible i'll lose it eventually
15:57@inkblot i suppose i could found a school
15:57@inkblot that seems like an aweful lot of work just to get a .edu domain, though
15:57BB but its a geek thing ... well not the work part
15:59chris caker: I can't remember, is all billing on the 1st?
15:59@caker chris: yes
15:59chris So does that mean it'll process 1st at midnight or midnight of the 2nd?

16:36eurozip I changed root shell to bash, but forget to change /sbin to /bin so now when I try to login I get no shell, this is on a solaris box, serial console and root is the only user

16:36EFudd cdboot
16:37eurozip which cd?
16:37EFudd the solaris OS cd to boot into install
16:37EFudd and mount filesystem
16:37eurozip ok, I can get to a "rescue" shell from there
16:37eurozip then just mount and change
16:37EFudd ayup
16:37EFudd dont' change root shell
16:38EFudd :)
16:38eurozip solaris 8 installation, 2/02
16:38EFudd you realize that bash in /bin isn't static?
16:38eurozip any idea how to boot from cd with alom?
16:38EFudd alom?
16:38EFudd " a lom " ?
16:39EFudd as in the LOM?

17:13@caker host20 has left the building
17:25EFudd next time don't do that?
17:25EFudd changing root shell == bad
17:25EFudd seems to be a linux habit or something
17:26EFudd rephrase. changing root shell when you aren't quite sure how it all works == bad. which means, files necessary to allow login *PLUS* repercussions from system failure with a non static root shell
17:26EFudd /sbin doesn't mean "super use bin"
17:26EFudd it means "static binaries"

17:32EFudd no. you should be able to boot that other stuff. or from your installation media
17:32EFudd nope.
17:32eurozip I got no cd's with it, I only have an older version of solaris
17:32EFudd well yeah, netboot, etc. but alas.
17:32eurozip don't have another box like this one to slide the drive into, so...
17:33EFudd can you sudo? :)
17:33eurozip no other user on the system

18:10@caker host21 would be the 7th server in that cab. It should be ok with 7. Eight worries me
18:11@caker no, I don't want to start with another DC yet, for a few reasons

18:16@caker EFudd: is your ./ script ready for consumption?
18:16EFudd You tell me. :)
18:16@caker I haven't seen it
18:16@caker :)
18:17EFudd i need to change a couple of things like reading $HOME from ENV and modify a default if so.
18:17EFudd can do that tonight.
18:17@caker $kilobyte = 1024; <-- thank you!
18:17EFudd :)
18:18@caker I'm going to post about it on the forums - you can follow up with your script, coo?
18:18EFudd yah. will tonight. will be a few hours.
18:18@caker ok
18:18EFudd post the appropriate "please don't abuse" stuff
18:19@caker right
18:19EFudd i'll follow up with reasonings for why it's written the way it is
18:19@caker we'll see how BOFH.angry it makes me
18:19EFudd okee.
18:19adamg what is this script supposed to do?
18:19EFudd 3/2004 You are currently UNDER your set limit (80%).

18:21adamg yeah I remeber now
18:22EFudd http(s)?
18:22@caker yes
18:22EFudd er...
18:22@caker either
18:22* EFudd using http atm
18:22EFudd oh ok. :)
18:22@caker http is probably preferred, in this case
18:22* EFudd ponders how LWP works with https
18:24@caker LWP::Protocol::https
18:24@caker should work out of box :)
18:25adamg intresting that the output on that is different to that listed in the lpm
18:25EFudd -nods-
18:25EFudd lpm?
18:25@caker adamg: the lpm caches it for a while
18:25@caker adamg: that query in the /bw/ script isn't cached
18:25@caker adamg: thanks for pointing that out
18:25EFudd altho my does cache
18:26adamg how long is it cached for in the lpm
18:26@caker EFudd: lpm =
18:26@mikegrb adamg: three years
18:26EFudd gotcha.
18:27@caker adamg: 2 hours
18:27adamg got that makes sense then
18:27* EFudd caches 1hr

18:28@caker EFudd: that's cool.. I probably won't allow any more than that (after a certain point)

18:38Tenkawa wheew
18:38Tenkawa my fans were not healthy
18:38EFudd You gonna make me parse stat time?! :)
18:39EFudd i'm gonna ask folk not to modify $useragent or $maxTime.. on reason of "it allows caker to monitor usage of this"
18:39EFudd that ok?
18:39adamg mean I can set-up some nice scripts, to email at 90% usage etc and parse the data in to a db and get bw usage per day or even per hour
18:39EFudd adam, i think the fear is someone graphing the shit into mrtg or something
18:39adamg I was thinking of doing that
18:40EFudd this should be a "convenience" to not require you to login to the web
18:40EFudd nothing more.
18:40adamg well into rrd, but only once an hour
18:40EFudd doesn't need to be abused.
18:41adamg I wasnt going to do it every 5 mins as that is pointless and stupid
18:42adamg I would also pull it straight from the linode servers using lwp
18:42adamg just use a regex to match the required fields, no need for an xml parser
18:43EFudd $useragent = "BandWidth Snarf v1.5/" . $username;
18:43* EFudd ponder
18:43EFudd parsing XML is > * tho. :)

20:44@mikegrb and add automagic
20:44EFudd should i really expect my pizza to take 1hr10minutes+ to get here?
20:44EFudd is it too much to ask for hot-fast-free-delivery pizza?
20:44EFudd "sompnhereblahblah check your bandwidth usage from your host blahblah"

21:06@caker EFudd: sure
21:06EFudd you really could hook more into this.. :)
21:07EFudd [like notices of host outages]
21:07@caker kind of a motd thing?
21:07EFudd ayup
21:07* Tenkawa tries to dig up temp sensors for his motherboard
21:07EFudd we just add more flags to the xml
21:07EFudd and catch them
21:07EFudd i know i don't read the boards much....
21:07@caker I can add them without messing up old versions of this script, too
21:08EFudd i think, yes.
21:08EFudd the xml parser should take care of it.
21:08EFudd we just determine what types of nodes should be watched for and their expected values... then start catching them.
21:08EFudd ... but see what the response is like. :)
21:09@caker I probably should have used a parent XML tag around <bwdata>
21:09EFudd hmm. -nods-
21:09@caker let's change it real quick?
21:09EFudd sure.

21:17EFudd ok.
21:18EFudd good. will fix0r that later then.

21:30EFudd is it me, or is that topic antiquated?
21:31chris no, he's still doing it
21:31* EFudd looks at his disk space
21:32* EFudd ponders
21:32EFudd compare it to that then :P
21:34EFudd he does it. the numbers are just wrong in the first.
21:38@caker s/wrong/old/
21:38@caker same diff
21:39EFudd -nods-
21:39EFudd hence 'antiquated' as first statement :P

21:43@mikegrb it is pretty neat
21:43EFudd mike, you are required to pass out cookies.
21:44* mikegrb passes out cookies
21:44* EFudd doesn't modify his variables !
21:44EFudd Not modifying them makes you a very good community member and mikegrb will give you
21:44EFudd cookies.
21:44EFudd :)
21:44EFudd :)
21:44@mikegrb oh yes
21:45@mikegrb bold even

21:45@mikegrb guess I better go to sams
21:45EFudd 24 is lame :/
21:45@caker hehe
21:45@inkblot tv is lame
21:45EFudd what is more lame is that my visa won't authorize charges from "online gambling" sites
21:45@mikegrb stock up on laxitives for the sneaky people who think they can modify them and then hop in the cookie queue
21:46EFudd inkblot, that i agree with.

21:47sighup Phoenix> So, Im at the usual weekend frat parties and i've been talking to this girl for the majority of the night.
21:47sighup Phoenix> Anyway I ended up going back with her to her dorm. About another 8shots later, we end up fooling around on her bed.
21:47sighup Phoenix> So about 10min's into her giving me head, I had to drop the fattest shit in my life.
21:47sighup Phoenix> All my meals were followed by 3tsp of metamucil so I could get lots of fiber in me to combat the carbs a litte. Anyway im holdin my #2 in and finally it goes away. We both end up passing out on her bed, she's butt naked and im in my boxers.
21:47sighup Phoenix> I wake up to piss and I find myself covered in shit. It was all over the bed,sheets,etc.... Im freakin out so I did the most horrible thing in the world.
21:47sighup Phoenix> She's sleeping with her back towards me, so I take my boxers off, scoop up some shit and gently smear it on the inside of her butt, her lower back, and a little on the back of her hammies.
21:47sighup Phoenix> I get dressed and leave... This poor girl is gonna think she did it. I didnt know what else to do though. I have no clue what im gonna do when I end up running into her.

23:06fake__ Heya, I'm thinking of switching to Linode from Bytemark Hosting. Are there any plans to implement stuff like this:
23:08* EFudd recommends linode
23:08EFudd ipv6 is doable through an ipv6 tunnelbroker
23:09EFudd caker can speak more on those other things. i've been linode customer for quite a few months now.. linode is quite highly ranked among it's users... the support is *GREAT* from both linode as well as the community.
23:10@inkblot fake__, linode does not currently have value-add services like those
23:10@inkblot fake__, i don't know whether there are plans to provide any, but i would guess not
23:10EFudd linode's got the best setup of any of the UML providers from and end-user standpoint with the web based control panel and such
23:10@inkblot fake__, linode has been a very good vds host, though, and i'm quite happy to provide those things for myself
23:11fake__ cool
23:11EFudd also, none of the machines are overcommitted
23:11EFudd and caker is actively helping to develop UML technology....
