00:24<Tzadik>hi there... got an apache question
00:24<Tzadik>don't worry... i've spent hours banging my head against it before resorting to asking
00:24<Ty>*drum roll*
00:25<Tzadik>i can't seem to get it to access anything in a subdirectory
00:25<Tzadik>of the doc. root
00:25<Tzadik>i keep getting "requested url ... was not found on this server"
00:26<Tzadik>i don't have that problem on my first linode
00:26<Tzadik>only on the latest one
00:26<Tzadik>do you have to do anything special in the httpd.conf to get it to go into subdirectories?
00:26<Tzadik>as a result, it's not picking up any images, since they are in /images
00:27<Tzadik>it's only seeing what's in the doc. root itself
00:27<Tzadik>in case it matters, i'm using virtual servers on this linode
00:27<Tzadik>whereas on the first, I'm not
00:28<Tzadik>ever heard of this problem?
00:29<Ty>I'd try asking when there's more people active, heh.
00:31<Tzadik>ok
00:31<Tzadik>i wish i was not active right now
00:31<Tzadik>but i can't stand going to bed with a problem unsolved
00:31<Tzadik>bad habit
00:36<npmr>hmmm

00:38<Tzadik>yess?
00:39<Tzadik>npmr... got any ideas?
00:39<npmr>what's your DocumentRoot for the vhost you're trying to reach?
00:39<Tzadik>it's /var/linode/www
00:39<npmr>and that path exists?
00:40<Tzadik>yes... i can hit files in there fine
00:40<npmr>files but not directories?
00:40<Tzadik>it's just the subdirectories that don't show up
00:40<Tzadik>right
00:40<psykoyiko>so, um
00:40<Tzadik>by the way, the same thing is hapenning in /var/www
00:40<psykoyiko>what are the permissions on said subdirectories?
00:41<Tzadik>drwxr-xr-x
00:41<npmr>hi dave
00:41<psykoyiko>werd.
00:41<Tzadik>right... it's working fine on another linode i have
00:41<npmr>Tzadik, anything in your error log?
00:41<Tzadik>except the one it's working on does not have virtual servers
00:41<Tzadik>ahhh....
00:41<Tzadik>good idea
00:42<Tzadik>aha!!!
00:43<Tzadik>the error log has errors like:
00:43<Tzadik>File does not exist: /usr/share/images/foo.gif
00:43<Tzadik>so it's somehow looking in the wrong dir!!
00:43<Tzadik>so i made 2 blunders in my troubleshooting
00:43<Tzadik>1- not thinking to check the error log
00:43<npmr>check for "Alias" directives
00:44<Tzadik>2- always trying the same subdir (images)
00:44<npmr>it'd be like:
00:44<npmr>Alias /images/ /usr/share/images/
00:44<npmr>i may have those backwards
00:45<npmr>nope, i had it the right way around
00:46<Tzadik>yes!!!! it's working!!!!
00:46<npmr>excellent
00:46<Tzadik>i commented out the alias
00:46<Tzadik>thanks so much!!!
00:46<npmr>good move
00:47<Tzadik>pretty newbie mistake to make... not looking in the logs
00:47[~]npmr shrugs
00:47<Tzadik>ok thanks
00:47<npmr>happens to the best of us
00:47<npmr>and you're welcome

04:37|-|vaxen [~vaxen@i-83-67-106-135.freedom2surf.net] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
04:38<bbtux>I tried with the 2.4.29-linode39 and 2.6.12.3 kernels
04:38<bbtux>can some one please help
04:41<tekmav>are you getting any error messages when you are connected via lish?

04:44<bbtux>tekmav: didnt try lish. I used the ssh client
04:44<bbtux>do i need to goto single user mode for that?
04:45<cast>alright, having mild issues logging into the linode.com site. under the forgotten password dialog is 'Invoice or Payment ID' the same as the 'Payment Number: #####' that one gets in the Payment Receipt emails?
04:46<tekmav>cast: glad to see i am not the only one having problems logging in
04:46<cast>tekmav: ahh, here i was thinking my [saved] password had magically changed :\
04:46<tekmav>bbtux: you should be able to ssh to the host with your username/password and watch the console as it boots
04:47<cast>i won't worry about this for today if someone else is having the same problem :>
04:47<tekmav>cast: yeah, i was trying to reboot my linode and it would not come back up. tried going into the website but could not login. i sent an e-mail in since i could not make a trouble ticket
04:52<tekmav>cast: are you able to hit lish with ssh?
04:52<cast>never used lish
04:52<cast>servers still running fine though
04:53<bbtux>Ok logged into list and i got the # prompt
04:53<bbtux>then i tried turning on the machine but it failed
04:53<tekmav>lish is working for me still with my password just cannot boot up and my pass will not work on the website
04:53<bbtux>lish] There is no screen to be resumed matching thinckuber.
04:53<bbtux>Your Linode isn't running, or another console session is already active.
04:54<tekmav>bbtux: at the prompt type boot then return to twice to connect to the console and see if you get anything
04:55<bbtux>[thinckuber@host55 lish]# boot
04:55<bbtux>OK
04:55<bbtux>[thinckuber@host55 lish]#
04:55<bbtux>[thinckuber@host55 lish] There is no screen to be resumed matching thinckuber.
04:55<bbtux>Your Linode isn't running, or another console session is already active.
04:56<bbtux>btw this is the first time i am doing this. I setup using the wizard a debian sarge minimum with the default hard disk images (2 - root and swap)
04:56<tekmav>what host are you on?
04:58<bbtux>The host message on the interface is..
04:58<bbtux>Host Message Account suspended. Job aborted
04:59<tekmav>i think they are having some technical difficulties. you may be suffering from the same problem i am having, although i am on hos45
05:05<bbtux>i am on host55
05:10<tekmav>again, i think it is a technical issue and not your setup. give it an hour or two then try again.

05:24<@caker>bah
05:24<@caker>I did a bad thing. I think it's fixed for mostly everyone now
05:26[~]tekmav grins evily at caker. "Did you mislabel plug the servers and the coffee pot in the same outlet again?"
05:27<tekmav>er scratch the mislabel. was trying to two wisecracks at once
05:27<@caker>Try not highlighting ALL of the query I ran earlier (I missed the freaking WHERE clause) ....
05:28<tekmav>that would do it. WHERE? Not here? Maybe over there? Did you check under that rock?
05:28<bbtux>yeah its working now
05:28<tekmav>i've done that a few times too, no worries
05:28<@caker>I have daily backups, but was able to run some fancy queries to fix my goof ...
05:29<tekmav>well it all seems groovy now

07:02<tronix>Dear Host28 CPU Pig, please quit hogging things!
07:02<tronix>0700 then 0800...
07:03<tronix>5-10 mins to wait for shell to return. let's see if it happens again at 0900 ;)
07:03<tronix>(io_status shows 0 tokens used, and uptime shows load at 15+ by time I get a prompt again)
07:04<tronix>with none of my tools hogging the CPU, so pretty sure it's a hog in another Linode on same host.
07:04<cast>then why is your load up?
07:04<tronix>load average shows what's on host.
07:04<tronix>another linode chewing through CPU
07:05<tronix>it's a shared resource.
07:05<cast>where are you getting this load average from? :\
07:05<tronix>uptime
07:05[~]cast is missing something in this plot
07:05<cast>from your own linode?
07:05<tronix>yup
07:05<tronix>when I get a shell back :)
07:06<cast>i was under the impression load averages for a linode were for that linode, rather then he whole host
07:07<tronix>could be someone is swap-thrashing.
07:07<tronix>which likely explains the huge disk i/o hit
07:07<tronix>(one of my files being written, 2K file, from 10 mins ago hasn't finished yet)
07:08<tronix>swap thrashing also has a side effect of resulting in high load too
07:08<cast>so when my uptime says 08:07:55 up 50 days, 6:19, 1 user, load average: 0.00, 0.00, 0.00
07:09<cast>that means the entire host is hardly being used?
07:09<tronix>that's my impression. I could be wrong, though.
07:10<tronix>average Linode probably isn't cpu hungry. couple idle cycles listening
07:10<tronix>on various ports
07:10<tronix>I've seen loads of 7-10+ in past, even when none of my processes
07:10<tronix>were eating much CPU (from ps -efl output)
07:11<tronix>ditto swap usage or io_status tokens
07:14<tronix>heh, still out to lunch, 15 mins later. naughty swap thrasher, whomever it is. ;)
07:14<tronix>sent in a ticket.
07:14<cast>my brief search just then shows that the Host load going from low to medium did not change my load avg's of 0.00
07:15|-|linville [~linville@nat-pool-rdu.redhat.com] has joined #linode
07:16<tronix>hmm. all can say is that ps -efl didn't show CPU hogs on my linode
07:16<tronix>not just % of CPU but also total accumulated time
07:17<tronix>had it been hogging CPU, latter would also have run up impressively
07:17<cast>hmmm :/
07:17<tronix>most likely mem shortage on another linode
07:17<tronix>doesn't really hog cpu *per se*
07:17<tronix>mostly slams I/O
07:24<jlinos>anybody knows what is happening with host28.linode.com?
07:25<jlinos>i have a linode there that just doesn't reboot any more
07:25<tronix>same problem here...
07:25<tronix>think another linode is swap-thrashing
07:25<tronix>not much can be done (if that's case) until caker or mikegrb looks
07:26<tronix>and i/o-limits the thrasher

07:27<jlinos>hmm, that is too bad, i assume it is night there in america where caker resides, it can be 4-5 hours untill he gets up
07:27<tronix>it's morning now.
07:28<tronix>about 8:29am Eastern time
07:28<tronix>might be up soon.
07:28<jlinos>aa, perfect
07:28<jlinos>do you happen to know what he checks first ? an email, this channel, the forums ?
07:29<tronix>not sure. but do have a support ticket already submitted
07:29<tronix>so they'll probably see it here or in support tickets

07:49<cinnamon>Morning - any known probs with host 28 at all, cos I can't SSH to it, and it seems to be taking an age to reset my pass/reboot etc?
07:51<tronix>yep
07:51<tronix>think it's a swap thrasher, possibly
07:51<tronix>can't do much til caker/mikegrb looks.
07:51<cinnamon>Ahh, buggery :/ Cheers
07:51<tronix>aye :) sorry. :(
07:51<@mikegrb>waiting
07:51<@mikegrb>on ticket update
07:51<tronix>i'm in same boat if it helps, cinnamon
07:51<cinnamon>Will park up here for a while then

07:52[~]cinnamon passes out the biscuits - chocolate anyone?
07:52<tronix>hahaha :)
07:52[~]tronix nibbles on tasty chocolate biscuits
07:54<jlinos>i am still here tronix, wondering if i can do anything to raise up my linode, looked into lish, they say it is as if you have a keyboard and a screen in front of your linode, maybe i see some message errors
07:54<jlinos>unfortunately that lish thing doesn't work either
07:55<tronix>the Linode folks do a fine job on the whole.
07:55<tronix>this is just...
07:55<tronix>one of the achilles heels.
07:55<tronix>they do partition out CPU and I/O usage
07:55<tronix>but it's not 100% a 'complete brick wall'
07:55<tronix>between each Linode
07:56<tronix>so there's a small window where 'malcontents' can cause problems.
07:56<jlinos>yeap, i know, i had very few problems with them since i started
07:56<tronix>ditto
07:56<tronix>(same here)
07:56<tronix>so I don't mind too much for rare problems.
07:56<jlinos>1 year and 3 months, and only 2 issued untill now, this is the third
07:56<jlinos>*issues
07:57<tronix>aye, about same amount for me, too.
07:57<tronix>most of the issues has been related to silly ThePlanet data center/centre techs :-)
07:58<jlinos>yeah, remember the day when there was a power outage thing, even www.linode.com didn't work
07:58<tronix>heh, memorable.
07:58<tronix>never seen IRC so active. ;)
07:58[~]tekmav screams into the morning. damn qmail.
07:58<jlinos>yeah, me too :)
07:58<tekmav>anyone here using qmail, vpopmail on gentoo?
07:58<jlinos>i think there were 1000 users on this channel that day
07:59<tronix>tekmav: I use gentoo, but not either tool. I used both once on Gentoo (non-Linode)
07:59<tronix>for a friend I was helping out with
07:59<tronix>was a while ago.
08:00<tronix>only thing I remember is I found a small bug relating to
08:00<tronix>how ebuild was built for vpopmail and user passwords
08:00<tronix>so had to redo with a custom ebuild for a changed option and redo user passwords
08:01<tekmav>everything is working grand except for damn smtp
08:01<tronix>hmm. how so?
08:02<@mikegrb>that fact that qmail is 8 years old with no changes doesn't help
08:02<tronix>ha
08:03<tronix>it's usually the colorful personality of its author
08:03<tronix>that most people seems to take umbrage at ;)
08:03<tekmav>either i am getting an issue stating that my server is not in rcpthost file or when i attempt authenticate i just a nada just connection failed
08:03<@mikegrb>that doesn't help either, but no need to poke fun at him when the software is so easy to
08:03<tronix>:)
08:04<tekmav>heh
08:04<tronix>tekmav: hmm, are all of names for your server listed in rcpthost?
08:04<tekmav>tronix: yep.
08:04<tronix>hmm.
08:04<tronix>might have to strace a connecting qmail session or something
08:05<tronix>to see if it's checking that file
08:05<tronix>strace -f -p <pid> or some such
08:05<tronix>or up debug log level (if possible)
08:05<tronix>I'm just rusty with qmail because I normally use postfix (or sendmail at work)
08:05<@mikegrb>linodes comming back up now
08:06<tronix>sweet
08:07<tekmav>i argued with myself about postfix or qmail. it just seemed the documentation for gentoo forums for qmail was a little more par.
08:08<jlinos>tronix, i found on forums that on newer servers there was a pathced kernel that as this post says http://www.linode.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=1438&highlight=crontab+locate , i quote: The newer hosts have CFQ on the host kernels, which from what caker has said, has a good effect
08:08<tronix>tekmav: that's true.
08:08<jlinos>out host28 linode has this newer and better kernel ?
08:09<tronix>I've only had to set up postfix with trimmings once and forgot about it, so good deal for me.
08:09<tronix>tekmav: I did ok with following general postfix config tips; most of it isn't Gentoo specific. mostly have to edit main.cf/master.cf, and pretty much it.
08:10<tronix>(fwiw)
08:10<tronix>but did ok with qmail too the one time I used it for a friend's debugging
08:10<tronix>jlinos: ah! forgot about CFQ. that's a good question (host28); mikegrb would probably know.
08:11<jlinos>he is online, maybe he can tell us live here
08:12<jlinos>mikegrb: does host28 has CFQ, and if not is there an upgrade planned ?
08:12<tronix>yay, my linode's up on 28 :)
08:12[~]tronix goes to finish that email, which hung at the final :wq! earlier
08:13<bendy24>mikegrb: host 0 is having trouble?
08:16<jlinos>actually host28 is an old one, i think the distributions installed there have all the crontab problem, starting all at the same hour updatedb and every day that is
08:17<jlinos>i should put a post on the forums for the host 28 members
08:19<cinnamon>Aye, please do, but please put it in English for the not so tech-knowledgable (ie me) among us :)
08:20<jlinos>my linode is still down :(
08:20<jlinos>now it is up :)
08:21<@mikegrb>jlinos: updaedb shouldn't be a problem
08:26<jlinos>then what happened ? what caused this service interruption ?
08:27<@mikegrb>syslogd + cron
08:27<@mikegrb>what it looked like
08:27<jlinos>anything we can do , so it won't hapen in the future ?
08:27<@mikegrb>not really
08:28<@mikegrb>updatedb problems might be better
08:28<@mikegrb>we put in a helper script that disabled updatedb unless turned off, don't know if host28 had been rebooted since then
08:46<tekmav>tronix: four score and nine cigarettes later. i figured out the issue for smtp. it was thunderbird wanting to authenticate one way and not the other.
08:48<tekmav>bye every1

10:26<cristi>For theLinode 120 account are database limitations?
10:27<chris>You can install pretty much whatever you want
10:30<cristi>Can you set up a CPanel or Plesk aplication for non-experienced Linux users to manage the server?
10:35<bendy24>you can use webmin
10:36<@mikegrb>or plesk or cpanel, you can install anything you want

11:36<fredy_>Running 'reboot' from the shell seemed to hang my linode.
11:37<fredy_>Must reboot be done from the web UI?
11:37<@mikegrb>doesn't hang it, just shuts it down
11:37<@mikegrb>from the web or from lish
11:38<fredy_>Right. So why does 'reboot' have the same effect as 'halt'?
11:38<@mikegrb>the host has to do things between boots
11:39<fo0bar>fredy_: it's a limitation of UML, unfortunately
11:39<@mikegrb>http://www.linode.com/wiki/index.php/Lish_Documentation#Examples
11:40<@mikegrb>fo0bar: no, not a limitation of uml, just our implementation
11:40<fredy_>Thanks for the URL mike. I wondered what 'lish' was.
11:41<@mikegrb>fredy_: you can add an ssh key for lish access from the website
11:41<@mikegrb>then alias reboot= ssh LinodeUsername@hostXX.linode.com reboot
11:41<@mikegrb>then typing reboot from your linode will preform a reboot
11:42<fredy_>Interesting...
11:44<fo0bar>mikegrb: buh? "reboot" on any uml client I've tried has just exited the kernel
11:44<@mikegrb>fo0bar: where those kernels from caker?
11:44<fredy_>Is it normal for /var/log/dmesg to have a bunch of "Can't open "<NULL>": errno = 14" lines?
11:44<@mikegrb>fo0bar: he has them patched
11:45<@mikegrb>fredy_: most likely, what's the line before?
11:45<fo0bar>mikegrb: no, regular -um kernels
11:45<fredy_>ubd7: Can't open "<NULL>": errno = 14
11:45<@mikegrb>yes
11:45<@mikegrb>fo0bar: as far as I know that's not the case, hasn't been for other people anyway
11:45[~]fo0bar checks
11:46<fredy_>I get 16 of those for each of ubd3 through ubd7.
11:46<@mikegrb>yeah
11:46<@mikegrb>the kernel is trying to probe those devices but they don't exist
11:46<fredy_>OK. Just checking that I didn't hose things up.
11:50<fo0bar>mikegrb: well I'll be damned. I guess I'm just used to typing "halt" no matter what when I'm in UML

13:06<FireSlash>You can always resize your primary or swap partitions later if you need .
13:07<fredy_>I used all remaining space for an LVM partition. I don't think I can resize that without rebuilding all the LVs.
13:08<fredy_>I suppose I could use the swap device as a temporary backup root.

13:23<anderiv>caker: great - thanks for the quick response. I'll submit a ticket shortly.

14:16<@caker>?
14:19<dilcher>I'm using Ksirc for an irc client. wouldn't mind if anyone has a better irc client they could recommend.
14:19<dilcher>been about 3 years since I used IRC
14:20<dilcher>looking for something Linux compatible of course
14:20<bendy24>irssi
14:20<fredy_>Chatzilla (Firefox extension) is good enough IRC client for me.
14:20<@caker>irssi
14:20[~]tronix highly recommends irssi for text mode stuff, else x-chat is great (gui)
14:20<@caker>irssi + screen
14:20<bendy24>yeah
14:20<bendy24>screen
14:21<dilcher>cool. Thanks. I'm familiar with screen, but haven't used it in conjunction with irc
14:21<tronix>both supports ssl and UTF-8 (great for internationalization stuff)
14:21<tronix>screen too :)
14:21<tronix>no ssl support with screen but does UTF-8
14:22<@caker>no ssl support with screen?
14:22[~]caker ponders
14:23[~]bendy24 sees smoke
14:23[~]caker fumes
14:23<[|^__^|]>caker: I hear that vi doesn't have SSL support either!
14:23[~]tronix orders fire extinguishers via fedex first overnight ;)
14:23<[|^__^|]>bendy24: do you have a copy of ls that has ssl support?
14:24[~][|^__^|] works on sslrm
14:24<tronix>hahaha
14:24<@caker>heh
14:24<[|^__^|]>it's the ssl-enabled rm utility
14:24<bendy24>[|^__^|]: yes! i eve have a torrent available of it
14:24<[|^__^|]>bendy24: <3
14:24[~]tronix prefers 3des-enabled rm, though ;)
14:24<bendy24>thats just overkill
14:25<fo0bar>tronix: go UPS instead, they have same-day delivery for only about $200/lb :)
14:25<dilcher>when you guys talk about irc / screen, your just running a text based irc in a second window in screen?
14:25<bendy24>yes
14:25<tronix>fo0bar: hahaha nice! didn't realize that. that could come in handy for company sometimes. *makes mental note*
14:26<tronix>dilcher: that's exactly what I'm doing at moment, btw. makes life very easy as I hop around on different machines all day long
14:27<[|^__^|]>dilcher: yeah, and irssi has ssl support, so I don't know what tronix was talking about
14:27<[|^__^|]>dilcher: the bonus is that screen persists across disconnects
14:27<[|^__^|]>dilcher: so you can detach and log off and go somewhere else to reattach, and your sessoin will still be there
14:27<tronix>was mentioning both xchat and irssi had ssl and utf-8 support
14:27<[|^__^|]>dilcher: also there's screen support in irssi to automatically set you away when you detach. i use it.
14:27<@caker>huh
14:28<[|^__^|]>I just only have public_autoaway set for one channel
14:28<bendy24>hu
14:28<[|^__^|]>h
14:28<dilcher>cool, time to 'emerge irssi' then...
14:28<[|^__^|]>be sure to get all the extra scripts as well
14:28<[|^__^|]>they're useful
14:28<tronix>dilcher: if you use utf-8 support, need to use ~x86 for irssi
14:28<tronix>otherwise, irssi (x86) is fine
14:28<bendy24>make sure to load the updike script
14:28<fo0bar>tronix: you're basically paying UPS to have some guy pick up your stuff and get on the next outbound plane with it
14:28<bendy24>its a must
14:28<dilcher>utf-8 I am guessing is some kind of internationalization support?
14:28<[|^__^|]>wait, are you trying to say that irssi can't do utf8 on a PPC or amd64>
14:29<tronix>dilcher: it is
14:29<tronix>lets me read cyrillic, french, greek, etc. along with ascii
14:29<tronix>it's pretty slick
14:29<[|^__^|]>yep
14:29<@caker>[|^__^|]: that's some gentooism
14:29<tronix>(I've got a co-worker who used to live in Moscow and still does cyrillic copy-n-pastes)
14:29<tronix>[|^__^|]: oh, didn't mean to imply that. my bad
14:30<tronix>it's in the ~ stuff, probably ~ppc and ~amd64 too
14:30<[|^__^|]>also 日本語
14:30<tronix>haven't reviewed arch flags for irssi

16:08<anderiv>AFAIK, yes.

16:09<predius>yeah.
16:10<predius>is it me or is linode's web server not responding?
16:10<predius>it just stopped working
16:10<predius>pings all right.

16:17<anderiv>predius: it's back up now.
16:17[~]caker sighs .. it's going to be a long day
16:18<efudd>so i just called walmart supercenterthingy here to ask about their xbox 360s....
16:18<efudd>she saidt they have 14
16:18<anderiv>sorry man...
16:18<efudd>and there is already 14 people waiting
16:18<anderiv>*** directed to caker
16:18<fo0bar>efudd: what about the other 16 walmarts in your city?
16:18<fo0bar>(I'm assuming every city has the standard complement of 17, right?)
16:18<efudd>i called the only one that'd have any appreciable quantity
16:19<@caker>I was able to get Halo 2 back when it came out at a walmart in a shit part of town ... might be worth a call
16:19<@caker>different circumstances, I know .. but still
16:19<efudd>yeah...
16:19<fo0bar>efudd: where do you live?
16:19<efudd>i did too..
16:19<efudd>but...
16:19<efudd>foobar, NC.
16:20<AndyHat>Personally I can't see the point in getting a launch 360. None of the games out yet are worth the effort.
16:20<efudd>i wanted one to resell
16:20<efudd>duh.
16:20<efudd>:)
16:20<taupehat>frell
16:20<fo0bar>yeah, I'll probably wait until the first price drop to get one
16:21<taupehat>does anyone know how to force gtk to re-order widgets back the way THE ENTIRE BLOODY WORLD EXPECTS THEM TO BE?
16:21[~]taupehat h-bombs the gnome foundation for that and many other mortal sins
16:22<fo0bar>reno metro area: ~450k people. 8 walmarts within a 30 minute driving distance, and I've heard rumors they they're each getting 25. if I wanted to, I could probably get one
16:22<efudd>i'd have to card it anyway
16:22<efudd>no reason to get it

16:23<AndyHat>I have no idea how many Wal-Marts are around here, other than the 2 close ones. But then, I don't shop at Walmart.
16:24<AndyHat>Something about the Walmart ambiance completely creeps me out whenever I go into one.
16:25<fo0bar>AndyHat: walmart is intollerable before 10PM, but I usually do my shopping at about 2AM, so it works :)
16:25<fo0bar>they don't play music though, which is creepy
16:27<taupehat>fo0bar: it's fun to go into walmart with a tvbgone =]
16:27|-|Redgore [~Redgore@195.38.75.102] has quit [Quit: A geek without purpose - http://martlev.com | SMDC-Network IRC - irc.smdc-network.org]
16:28<fo0bar>taupehat: bah, they don't have a large selection. go to circuit city instead if you have a tvbgone :)
16:28<taupehat>done that =]
16:28<AndyHat>Of course, there's also the fact that Walmart randomly carries censored versions of games.
16:28<taupehat>what's fun about it is turning off the TV sets that blare rubbish to all who try to ignore it
16:29<AndyHat>I hate that.
16:29<taupehat>you know, the ones hanging from the ceiling
16:29<taupehat>tvbgone was MADE for those friggin things
16:30<fo0bar>AndyHat: I've never seen a sensored version of a PC game there... with the exception of pulling san andreas after the hot coffee incident, that is
16:31<AndyHat>They don't mark them as censored (unlike music).
16:31<AndyHat>But many games have "Walmart versions".
16:32<AndyHat>(GTA's a good example; Rockstar refused to do a censored version so Walmart didn't carry it initially, but then when it was a bestseller, they decided to ignore their own standards)
16:33<jlinos>caker, i am one with a linode on (ex)host28, i do not see any migration button on the overview page. will they appear later, or... I am in the dark now, should i just wait a little longer - very eager to log in into my box again, you know....
