06:27NeonNero|wrk | (it was /etc/inittab)
06:29adamg now add it to the wiki
06:29bob2 gentoo doesn't enable tty's by default?
06:30adamg i think it was left off the linode image
06:30bob2 ah
06:30adamg as try use tty0
06:30adamg which is not standard IIRC
06:31NeonNero|wrk | yep
06:32NeonNero|wrk | just change tty0 to vc/0 for the c0 terminal, and it works
06:32adamg usually securetty needs editing as well for root

11:29@mikegrb I have one
11:30kvandivo i'm looking for one to aid me in photography. i'd like to be able to say '1955 ford fairlane' and have it timestamped so that i can download it later and match it up with my pics

11:57kvandivo JasonF: he does that for free
11:57* mikegrb "checks" on JasonF's node
11:58JasonF mikegrb: did billing run last night?

11:59@mikegrb or it may have already started
11:59JasonF mine hasn't gone yet
11:59@mikegrb I'm really not sure

12:12bendy24 hrmph
12:12bendy24 the nerve
12:21tizen hey Greb you here?
12:21--- <<-- jekil [~alessandr@host44-235.pool8254.interbusiness.it] has quit (Quit: Ciao)
12:23@mikegrb ALWAYS.
12:24tizen hehe
12:24tizen Linode, LLC
12:24* kvandivo looks around.
12:24tizen or linode.com

12:24@mikegrb I posted a comment on the article

12:24bendy24 url?
12:25@mikegrb er sneakie
12:25@mikegrb bendy24: scrollback
12:25* mikegrb runs
12:28kvandivo mikegrb: wasn't that sneaky
12:28@mikegrb I know
12:28kvandivo but i'll give you a quarter attaboy for trying
12:28@mikegrb [michael@orion:tmp] ls -lh /tmp/rewrite.log
12:29@mikegrb -rw-r----- 1 root root 908M Jun 1 12:25 /tmp/rewrite.log
12:29@mikegrb ^ ha ha forgot to turn that off when done rebugging
12:30adamg a new it, developers do put bugs in there code
12:31* mikegrb hides
12:31@mikegrb don't blame me, I have an excuse for my typos
12:31@mikegrb greater then half my keys have no keycaps
12:31@mikegrb well blank keycaps
12:31adamg well dont eat them then
12:31@mikegrb I just type too much
12:32adamg if that was true you should know where all the keys are
12:33@mikegrb yeah
12:33@mikegrb sometimes my fingers hit the one next to it
12:33kvandivo i'll have to ponder whether or not it will actually benefit _me_ to put linode.com down at that URL
12:33@mikegrb kvandivo: it so will
12:33kvandivo it basically means more contention for resources if linode gets more popular
12:33kvandivo which doesn't benefit me
12:33adamg mikegrb offered a free account for a year, for all that do
12:34@mikegrb kvandivo: not really
12:34@mikegrb kvandivo: the number of users per host stays the same
12:34@mikegrb kvandivo: your host is and has been full for a while
12:34kvandivo what about the number of users per customer support representative?
12:34@mikegrb athat will always be 1:1
12:34* mikegrb runs
12:34adamg and number of users per pipe
12:35@mikegrb that will stay 1:1 too
12:35@mikegrb we have one 100mbit connection per uesr
12:35adamg i wish
12:36* adamg is going to miss the uni connection
12:36kvandivo do what i did... stay in academia
12:37bendy24 mikegrb: you need to add linode to wikipedia
12:37adamg kvandivo, i might go back one day but need a dose of the real world
12:38kvandivo been there, done that
12:38kvandivo i like the academia lifestyle better
12:38adamg well your an old git, im still young and innocent
12:38adamg you just like having an office overlooking the quad
12:38kvandivo which is why i'm offering you my wisdom, so that you don't have to make the same mistakes
12:39adamg academia aint the same over here as it is in the states
12:39kvandivo once upon a time i had started a collaboration with a few uni's there..
12:39kvandivo Leeds, among others..
12:39kvandivo never did develop, though
12:39adamg my sisters at leeds
12:40kvandivo they actually paid (indirectly) for me to go to canada a few years back
12:40adamg nice of them
12:40kvandivo yep. i thought so
12:41adamg which other unis?
12:41kvandivo hmm.. have to look it up.. give me a sec
12:42kvandivo it was part of the WUN initiative
12:43adamg http://www.wun.ac.uk/index.php?
12:43kvandivo i know a guy from leeds was there.. other possibilities include manchester, sheffield, southampton, york..
12:43kvandivo ya.. that's the one
12:43kvandivo bristol, maybe.. let me find the names and associate them with places. :)
12:44adamg dosnt matter that much
12:47kvandivo yes, bristol was where the main guy was from
12:49adamg horrible place
12:55bendy24 evil place
12:56kvandivo looks like leeds and bristol are the two main places the guys were from that i met with
12:57kvandivo oh, there was a York guy
12:59adamg york is a nice place
12:59adamg was born there
13:00adamg well doncaster acutally, all family from york, moved back there when my sister was born, till i was 9 or summat like that

13:38* caker fixes up the mail spool
13:39@mikegrb yeah was going to ask about that
13:40kvandivo sure you were
13:41@mikegrb :<
13:42tsi so uh any of y'all in phoenix area?
13:44kvandivo universally speaking, i'm pretty close to there
13:44tsi ok then has anyone done c2c contracting?
13:52@caker c2c == customer to customer?
13:54tsi sorry, corp to corp
13:54@caker If I understand you correctly, yes ...
13:55tsi long story short: (sketchy?) recruiter doesn't want to offer me a w2 or 1099 position, he wants it to be corp-to-corp. I'm reading all about it and it seems like more headache and expense than it's worth
13:56@caker Guess I don't understand the tax implications why they'd want to do that -- they'd still be giving your "corporation" a similar form
13:56@caker I did it back before I had the LLC, but I was doing business as SNT
13:56@caker we just did a w2
13:57@mikegrb well then they don't have to pay unemployment taxes and what not
13:57kvandivo might be different restrictions on whether they have to offer benefits, etc
13:57@mikegrb but I believe they don't have to do that with 1099 either
13:57@caker AFAIK, it would be the same thing now, except I'd use my federal tax ID number instead of my SSN
13:57@mikegrb 1099 == contracting, right?
13:57@caker s/w2/1099/
13:57tsi it's my understanding that it also frees them of some liability if i do a bad job
13:57@mikegrb yeah
13:58@caker http://ework.com/WSClassification.jsp
13:58tsi yeah there's no shortage of those umbrella corps out there, they all want a cut of your bill rate
13:59@caker tsi: getting set up as an LLC was a few hundred bucks, some to the state, some to my lawyer. Tennessee has reports I need to send in twice a year, as well
14:00tsi yay government
14:02tsi man i think i'm gonna have to pass on this job
14:02tsi anyone want an ongoing ibm storage gig in phoenix?
14:03* bendy24 runs
14:17--- ---> Surferdude [~Surferdud@pcp08365618pcs.lndsd201.pa.comcast.net] has joined #linode
14:18Surferdude Hmmm. thats odd
14:18kvandivo we thought so
14:18Surferdude the command "boot" dosnt work on lish
14:18Surferdude on host4
14:19Surferdude i see the job entered into the queue, but nothing happens
14:19Surferdude Works fine via the LPM though
14:26@caker Surferdude: it boots the last used config profile, so if that's gone, or you've changed something, it might not work
14:27Surferdude That probably explains it... I redeployed yesterday
14:28JasonF caker: did you get my pm?
14:29* caker looks
14:29@caker JasonF: no problem
14:29JasonF caker: linode is creating a bit of a buzz in trilug
14:29JasonF it's spreading little by little
14:29Surferdude trilug?
14:30JasonF Triangle Linux User Group (RTP/Raleigh area, NC)
14:30@caker JasonF: great!
14:30Surferdude ah
14:30JasonF caker: Mainly because someone *cough* began raving about it
14:30JasonF a couple other guys tried it
14:30JasonF and now they're raving
14:30@caker We're 1.5 steps closer to releasing Xen -- rate-limiting support went in for IO devices, and the first initial PAE patches were merged!
14:31JasonF cool
14:31Surferdude very... cant wait for that
14:31JasonF caker: is it possible to get a xen image migrated to my uml server?
14:31@caker JasonF: hmm .. yeah
14:31@caker JasonF: although you can do it via rsync :)
14:32JasonF caker: yeah, but rsync would mean more downtime than if you did it
14:32tsi linode gets mentioned on the DC SAGE mailing list about once a month
14:32@caker JasonF: how so?
14:32@caker JasonF: create an empty device, boot your UML node, rsync it over, then reboot the UML node when it's done
14:32tsi i think it's listed on their "officially blessed colo places" list on their website
14:33JasonF caker: but you miss step one... I'd have to delete the current image first, and install some kind of small distro on it to get rsync capability
14:33JasonF caker: because I don't have enough extra space to "just rsync" it
14:33@caker JasonF: I'll bump up your disk space temporarily
14:33@caker JasonF: send in a ticket
14:33JasonF caker: will-do. Thanks.
14:34JasonF caker: that'll actually make my migration 10x easier. I'll parition out, and move my content to a separate partition
14:36Surferdude caker: you planning to put another xen beta server up?
14:36@caker Surferdude: yes, a few actually... once we're ready for the public beta
14:37Surferdude Cool

15:00deeperbydesig| hi there, i just setup my linode but i have a question about reboots. when i issue "reboot" from a root shell it doesn't come back and shows as "shutdown" in LPM, then I have to boot it from LPM manually.
15:00deeperbydesig| is that to be expected? and if so, how does that interact with reboots that I don't issue (from the host or linode staff, etc)
15:01deeperbydesig| my apologies if it's been covered in the forums but i didn't see anything
15:01Newsome deeperbydesign: it's expected
15:01Newsome deeperbydesign: you can issue reboots through lish or LPM
15:02deeperbydesig| Newsome: thanks, so only reboot through Lish/LPM. but what about a host reboot or power trip?
15:03@mikegrb it will be rebooted automatically then
15:03deeperbydesig| mikegrb: sweet, thanks
15:22JasonF holy crap, been a while since I ran a sync on my xen node
15:55@caker deeperbydesign: the other trick is to alias reboot to "ssh username@hostXX.linode.com reboot"
15:56tsi alias killall='echo You might want to check uname first'

16:05deeperbydesig| caker: thanks, hopefully i won't be rebooting at all once setup
16:05kvandivo what exactly is deeper by design, anyway?
16:06Redgore at a guess a web design business
16:06kvandivo so a deep website is a good thing, in this context?
16:06deeperbydesig| ha, app design, database design, web design...
16:06deeperbydesig| better than shallow, right?
16:07kvandivo ahh.. ok.. i think i follow your intent

16:13fo0bar would you like to try tomorrow, or an alternate card today?

16:18fo0bar with frickin LASER BEAMS on their heads
16:20@mikegrb I taught a course on lasers
16:20@mikegrb made holograms and such
16:20@mikegrb not like those home holograms
16:20@mikegrb like we had to get a giant granite block to put all the equipment on
16:20@mikegrb get rid of the vibration
16:20@mikegrb and had a giant room with no light
16:21@mikegrb and double doors with an airlock for light to get in
16:21@mikegrb and it took a week
16:21@mikegrb but it was fun!
16:21taupehat sounds like it
16:21@mikegrb I should have them make a hologram of the Linode logo
16:21@mikegrb 5 ft by 2 ft
16:21taupehat heh
16:21@mikegrb for corporate headquarters
16:21taupehat if we get to do those

16:24@mikegrb I made a sand castle shaped like the linode l
16:24@mikegrb only the wrong perspective
16:24taupehat then I could run open-xchange without swapthrashing so hard it takes down the whole box
16:24@mikegrb rather then below and to the left the picture is from slightly above and to the right
16:24taupehat you should post that in the random-forum
16:25@mikegrb yeah
16:25@mikegrb probably will
16:25@mikegrb it needs some very slight photoshopping
16:25@mikegrb the tall part is one square too short
16:25taupehat ah, damn physics
16:25@mikegrb just couldn't get the sand to hold position in such a narrow tower

17:07Husam how could i pay for my linode with that?
17:07Husam its a virtual debit card, not a credit card
17:07@caker You go to PayPal, get a virtual credit card number, and use that number to signup
17:07npmr it's mastercard, so yes
17:08Husam but on linode.com
17:08npmr it's mastercard
17:08Husam it asks for stuff like card verification number

19:37ptomblin That database server of yours really helped a lot.
19:37ptomblin Just wanted to say thanks.
19:37adamg cool, didnt really notice any additional load on the server
19:38ptomblin Now that I've run my own tests, I think I'm going to open up to my users
19:38ptomblin to test.
19:38adamg with the db on my server?
19:38adamg all i saw from you where a lot of inserts into a sess table
19:38ptomblin When I used a local mysql server, my io_tokens went into the negative almost immediately.
19:38ptomblin but when I used yours, I was at the maximum
19:39ptomblin I did the inserts this morning (or rather left it running when I went to work
19:39ptomblin and I just tried a sample query three times with the same results
19:39ptomblin twice as fast as running a local server.
19:39adamg k, i just have mytop running so i look at it now and again
19:40ptomblin You must have a lot more ram on your server.
19:40ptomblin What is "mytop"?
19:40adamg top type output for mysql
19:40ptomblin Is there a .deb for it?
19:41adamg shows active threads etc
19:41adamg yeah apt-get install mytop

19:46taupehat all of the above
19:46ptomblin You're one of those "I'll sleep when I'm dead" guys, right?
19:46adamg i like sleeping, just cant really be bothered
19:47taupehat I can't ever seem to find the time
19:48ptomblin Maybe if you weren't hanging about on IRC all the time....

19:50ptomblin What started the fire?
19:51taupehat ptomblin: well, what you think?
19:51* taupehat knows one step they should have taken but didn't
19:51ptomblin Tried to hide a joint?
19:51taupehat haha
19:51taupehat nah
19:51taupehat it started where a wiring harness goes through the firewall
19:51taupehat that should be a clue...
19:51taupehat as to how they could have saved it
19:51ptomblin Oh, crappy third party stereo wiring job?
19:51taupehat not that a vw golf is worth saving, but...
19:51taupehat haha
19:52taupehat probably
19:52taupehat but they left the battery connected the whole time
19:52ptomblin Did they not turn off the ignition?
19:52taupehat you can see tons of smoke and the blinkers are still on
19:52taupehat hell with ignition switch
19:52taupehat you pull the whole battery terminal off
19:52ptomblin Ever seen a VW beetle (old style) go?
19:52taupehat no more 12 volts at a ton of amps
19:52taupehat mine almost did
19:53taupehat taillight lead shorted and started smoking along the wire run
19:53ptomblin My brother burned his because of the battery under the back seat shorting on the seat springs
19:53taupehat and I had a ton of crap in the back seat
19:53taupehat heh, yep
19:53taupehat I pulled over and yanked everything out of the back of the car onto the street and pulled the lead
19:53taupehat problem solved
19:53ptomblin I nearly burned mine - I took the rear deck cover off for better cooling going up a mountain pass
19:53ptomblin (rogers pass in Canada).
19:54ptomblin when I put it back, I got the license plate light lead reversed.
19:54taupehat haha
19:54taupehat I torched the engine on mine
19:54taupehat bent the metal plates all up in the engine compartment
19:54ptomblin Of course it's a symettrical plug
19:54taupehat which screwed up the cooling
19:54taupehat a few days later it was sounding like the world's first 73 Diesel Beetle
19:54ptomblin the wire had the insulation burned out from the rear engine compartment all the way back up to the front wiring harness
19:55taupehat then it sounded like a silence
19:55ptomblin My beetle died after I took it to a crappy third party muffler shop. After that it would always overheat and die
19:55taupehat yep
19:55taupehat those metal plates are essential
19:55ptomblin on trips. I figured out after I totally cooked the engine that "speedy muffler" probably fucked up the shrouds
20:00ptomblin Well, I've got to go set up the web interface so people can test my program.
20:00ptomblin talk to you later.

20:55JasonF I'm just upset, I might not have money for gas to get to greensboro tomorrow :(
20:56guinea-pig mbta.com!
20:56guinea-pig oh wait. this isn't b0st0n
20:57Surferdude guinea-pig: Great minds think alike ;) I was just going to sugest Public Transportation
20:58guinea-pig heh
20:58guinea-pig Surferdude: it's becoming a form of troll on a certain community
20:59guinea-pig where any dumb question autmatically gets "mbta.com" as a response... now it's taken on a life of its own
20:59Surferdude ah
21:00guinea-pig i've never been any good at trolling myself
21:00guinea-pig being trolled, however...
21:11Surferdude time for bed... night

22:10iggy a business
22:10--- ---> Jason-home [~jay@adsl-221-53-133.rmo.bellsouth.net] has joined #linode
22:10Jason-home gah
22:10Jason-home resizing stuff
22:10Jason-home takes too long
22:11Jason-home it's already been 7 minutes
22:11Jason-home (I'm resizing 6gb part to 5gb)
22:11Martyn iggy : A business that hosts multiple usermode linux systems on dual CPU machines?
22:11Martyn (as opposed to running multiple usermode linux sessions on a PVM/MPI style machine?)
22:11iggy Martyn: that's a pretty good description
22:11Jason-home Using the EXCELLENT Linode Platform Manager(tm), one of the great benefits I have as a linode member.
22:11Jason-home </salespitch>
22:11iggy yes, I was getting there
22:12Martyn Jason : Sales pitch aside... I'm more interested in the technical aspects of the hosting :}
22:12iggy it's what goes on behind the scenes that attracts us all
22:12Jason-home hehe
22:12iggy uml doesn't lend itself to running on a load balancing cluster
22:12* Martyn has a 96 node scyld driven cluster..
22:12Jason-home what attracts me is I can get something that's easier to manage than a dedicated server, for cheaper than one.
22:13Martyn iggy : Yeah, but a scyld/beowulf cluster appears as having a single process space .. much like any SMP machine...
22:13iggy actually, if you know anything about clusters, you know, as the number of systems rises, availability declines
22:13iggy Martyn: yes and no
22:13iggy or, yes to that
22:13Martyn iggy : -nod- Sure, can't split threads across machines, for example.
22:13iggy there are other factors that affect things
22:14iggy there's always overhead involved in migrating processes, etc.
22:14Martyn Sure, twas why I was wondering how linnode worked :}
22:14iggy they are also running a test case of Xen instead of uml
22:14Martyn iggy : Sure, but the amount of time to migrate a process can be counted off in ticks...
22:15iggy same basic setup though
22:15Martyn -nod-
22:15Martyn Interesting business model :}
22:15iggy Martyn: I don't know about ticks... but the unfortunate fact is that the load patterns would change so frequently that there would be quite a bit of bouncing around
22:16Martyn iggy : Sure .. although I would think that like on any cluster, the uml session could be locked to a fixed subset of the cluster.
22:16Martyn scyld is good at that :}
22:16iggy what's interesting? it serves a rather large niche user base
22:17Martyn iggy : That -is- what is interesting. :}
22:17Martyn It's a very clean, good business model. Obvious with 20/20 hindsight :}
22:17@mikegrb mmm cake
22:17iggy and no other company has the mysterious man of cake to hold your hand every step of the way
22:18@mikegrb lolz
22:18Martyn LOL
22:18Jason-home mikegrb: can I get some extra IO tokens? coping like 3 gigs of stuff from one partition to another
22:19@mikegrb sure
22:20Martyn Okay, this is definately something I haven't tried before.. I'm getting uml to run as a process on the cluster.
22:20Martyn This should be .. interesting.
22:21Jason-home mikegrb: username is jay
22:21iggy Martyn: personally, I'd like to hear how it goes
22:22iggy I don't particularly think it makes sense for linode since it would complicate things beyond mikegrb's level of understanding
22:22iggy then we'd all be screwed
22:22@mikegrb a:<
22:22Martyn iggy : Well, we'll see. I'm going to use one of the prepackaged filesystems.
22:22Jason-home mikegrb: thanks, I'll be workign on copying stuff around for a while, so if you'd leave it that way for a couple of hours, I'd appreciate :)
22:22@mikegrb iggy: we will have live migrations between hosts in the future ;)
22:22@mikegrb Jason-home: it won't be a problem I'll check keep an eye on the host
22:23iggy mikegrb: with uml?
22:23Martyn iggy : 'linux' loads from gfs, but it refuses to load the initrd from it... I'll switch to a local ext3 filesystem instead.
22:23Martyn That's what I want to try ...
22:23@mikegrb iggy: no, xen
22:24iggy Martyn: I remember having all sorts of trouble with having uml fs'es on opengfs
22:24iggy it has to do with the way uml (ab)uses the page cache, and how (open)gfs works around it
22:24Martyn iggy : -nod- I use gfs only for one app on this cluster. it's nice though, because multiple nodes can all access the same filesystem
22:24@mikegrb lolz
22:24Jason-home mikegrb: surprisingly, coping over 3gb can take a while, lol
22:25@mikegrb roflz
22:25Battousai rofl
22:25Battousai :D
22:25@mikegrb lolz
22:25Jason-home lol rofl cake
22:25Jason-home gah! it no longer works :(
22:26Martyn iggy : Well, I'll be coredumped. It works.
22:26Battousai eww
22:26Martyn iggy : Migrating the uml process doesn't work ;}
22:26Martyn but it -does- attatch and run on a node...
22:31Jason-home okay
22:31Jason-home I'm setting up rsync to sync over an *entire distribution*
22:31Jason-home is this the correct thing for the .conf file
22:31Jason-home [backup]
22:31Jason-home path = /
22:31Jason-home comment = server backup
22:31Jason-home exclude = /proc
22:33@mikegrb you don't need a conf file
22:33@mikegrb just use rsync over ssh
22:33Jason-home for the rsyncd I do, don't I?
22:33@mikegrb no rsyncd needed
22:33Jason-home or do I not have to run rsyncd?
22:33Jason-home hrm
22:33Jason-home so how would I do it
22:33Jason-home I'm taking my ENTIRE xen gentoo image and plopping it to my uml node
22:33@mikegrb that's if you have a public repository or what not
22:33Jason-home what command would I use?
22:34iggy damnit, my slash key is broken
22:34@mikegrb well the important bit is you want -e ssh
22:34Jason-home mikegrb: I'd prefer an idiot proof command, if you know of one
22:34@mikegrb lolz
22:34Jason-home lol
22:34@mikegrb but you also want the options for presesrving file access/mod times/permissions/ownership etc
22:34* mikegrb looks at the manpage
22:35Jason-home so what will I do? rsync -e ssh -otheroptions / /mnt/gentoo
22:35Battousai mikegrb: how's ubuntu on a linode?
22:35fo0bar rsync -avzP -e ssh --exclude=/proc/ --exclude=/tmp/ --numeric-ids root@remote-host:/ /mnt/newdisk/
22:35iggy -a -e ssh probably
22:36Jason-home fo0bar: sexcellent, I'll just have to reenable root ssh access
22:38@mikegrb yes that
22:38@mikegrb Battousai: good
22:38Battousai boobilicious
22:38@mikegrb yes that
22:38@mikegrb <3
22:42Martyn iggy : Well, here's the result : scyld + uml works .. I can't migrate the process to another node, but it does start and run on the correct node. Not bad, really.
22:43iggy doesn't seem all that helpful
22:44Martyn That it works out of the box, as a non MPI/PVM program, is impressive
22:44iggy okay, I'll give you that ;)
22:44Martyn Of course, UML is not just any "ordinary" process .. but I'm -absolutely- certain I can figure out how to get the UML process to migrate to another node.

22:47Martyn I can't migrate a thread...
22:48Martyn Course, I can save the threads -state-, then restart it on the target node :}

23:19@mikegrb I think inittab as well
23:19Jason-home what do you have to edit in the inittab?
23:19@mikegrb you want tty0 (or vc/0 for gentoo)

23:33Jason-home mikegrb: so change tty0 to vc/0?
23:34@mikegrb no
23:34@mikegrb what distribution?
23:34Jason-home Gentoo.
23:34@mikegrb oh then yes
23:35JonR if my linode is seeming very slow all of a sudden, but top shows 95% cpu free, am I right in thinking that maybe I'm suddenly using a lot of bandwidth? And is there something like 'top' for network traffic?
23:35Battousai ntop
23:36@mikegrb JonR: the alternative is you can run "ifconfig" about 10 seconds or so apart and compare the diference
23:36@mikegrb also try "cat /proc/io_status"
23:37* JonR nods.
23:37JonR jon@li5-50:~$ cat /proc/io_status
23:37JonR io_count=181773185 io_rate=101 io_tokens=-23 token_refill=100 token_max=400000
23:37Battousai whoo
23:37JonR I'm guessing -23 is bad.
23:38@mikegrb yeah
23:38@mikegrb try "free -m"
23:39JonR aha, i seem to be using swap like a madman.
23:39* JonR grumbles.
23:39* Jason-home smacks JonR with his "don't use swap" paddle
23:39JonR Jason-home: er?
23:39Jason-home hehe :)
23:39Battousai hah
23:39@mikegrb JonR: top has an option to sort by memory usage
23:39Jason-home mikegrb: any way to "kill" a node that won't shutdown?
23:39Battousai on the bum i hope
23:40JonR Battousai: why?
23:40npmr killall linux
23:40npmr muahaha
23:40Battousai JonR: bum slaps rock
23:40Jason-home npmr: bad command or file name
23:40Jason-home :(
23:40@mikegrb Jason-home: your uml node or xen?
23:40Jason-home mikegrb: it did itself
23:40Jason-home uml
23:40Jason-home it did some sysrq stuff and killed out
