Yeah, I’ve had strange looking pattie melts at Norm’s. I’ve had dangerous veal cutlets at the Copper Penny. Well, what you get is a breaded Salisbury steak and a Shake‘n’Bake, and ...
01:39ZubonDo ... topped with a provocative sauce of Velveeta and half-and-half..., eh-he-he-he. Smothered with Campbell’s tomato soup. He-he-he-he... You see, I had kind of a eh... well, I ordered my veal cutlet, Christ it left the plate and it walked down to the end of the counter. (...?...) waitress (...?...), boy she’s wearing those rhinestone glasses with the little pearl thing clipped on her sweater. The veal cutlet come down trying to beat the shit out of my ...

03:06warewolf meh
03:06warewolf that's what I've basically got setup, minus the quota part.
03:06Dreamer3 warewolf: what mail server?
03:06warewolf but I thikn that what I've got is a bit of an overloaded linode 64 :)
03:07warewolf the mail software I use is: sendmail, and dovecot.
03:07Dreamer3 warewolf: i'm goign to push mine to the max... almost got my web services (-rails), php, mysql, and i'm at 20mb
03:07Dreamer3 sendmail *shivers*
03:07warewolf I stopped using mysql
03:07warewolf it was making too much IO
03:07Dreamer3 hmmm?
03:07Dreamer3 what do you use now?
03:08warewolf I don't.
03:08Dreamer3 *laughs*
03:08* warewolf skitters off to watch anime before going to bed
03:08Dreamer3 oh! i want to be able to add and remove addresses using SQL... so that might not be like your setup either :)
03:08warewolf mm
03:08warewolf no, I don't have any sql stuff tied into my mail.
03:09Dreamer3 flat text files aren't very text
03:09warewolf my mail setup is complex and simple at the same time
03:09* Dreamer3 nods
03:09warewolf I've got a handfull of domains, and 2 mailboxes all the mail goes into
03:09warewolf (that's the simple part)
03:09Dreamer3 ah
03:09warewolf then I have spamassassin, clamav, and 37 dns rbls.
03:09warewolf I hate spam.
03:10warewolf oh
03:10warewolf I also have sender-id verification, and spf verification too.
03:10warewolf oh, and domain keys.
03:10warewolf yis.
03:10warewolf I hate spam.
03:10warewolf and you shiver at sendmail.
03:10Dreamer3 *laughs*

12:58gpd I only have token_refill of 100 (normally 512) :-(
13:01adamg you would have been thrashing then and lowered down to stop you effecting other users
13:02gpd I know but I have fixed the problem...
13:03gpd should I submit a support ticket for this?
13:03gpd or will it get put back automatically?

15:47Apachez i found your problem regarding MACDADMACDAD as mac-adress stuff in snort
15:47Apachez its a pseudo packet created by snort itself, so its not a real packet that was captured.
15:48Apachez but more of a portscan report
15:48--- ---> ElectricElf [] has joined #linode
15:51Apachez "In order to get all th
15:51Apachez "
15:51Apachez In order to get all the portscan information logged with the alert, snort generates a pseudo-packet and uses the payload
15:51Apachez portion to store the additional portscan information of priority count, connection count, IP count, port count, IP range,
15:51Apachez and port range. The characteristics of the packet are:
15:51Apachez Src/Dst MAC Addr == MACDAD IP Protocol == 255 IP TTL == 0

16:33nybble caker: which is a rampant app using up swap?
16:33@caker nybble: or a number of apps, yeah -- thrashing refers to lots of swap activity (in and out) which eats up disk IO bandwidth
16:34nybble ah..
16:34nybble oki...
16:34nybble caker: ah. thanks
16:34@caker interestingly enough, that page refers to an H8DAR-T motherboard, which isn't listed on their website
