01:15<@caker>"mm, this sounds a lot like the BIOS insanity we saw on one cheapo Chaintech board. We knew it was bad when the thing reported in its boot display that the CPU was an "Intel Athlon". Things only got worse from there; but sadly there was no BIOS update, and we ended up throwing away the $35 board just on general principles :-D ."

09:33<npmr>what the hell
09:33<bendy24>Beirdo: pull up your pants and it will be overcast again
09:34<Beirdo>ummmm?
09:34<Beirdo>that's a moon
09:34<bendy24>not the front
09:34<Beirdo>heh
09:34<LJ>i watch the img. it's very beautiful
09:34<Beirdo>Blue Mountain's a nice spot
09:35<Beirdo>not much of a mountain, but for this area, it'll do
09:35<npmr>i've never been there
09:35<npmr>somehow i got a trail map for the place
09:36<kvandivo>Mount Bohemia.. that's where it's at
09:36<npmr>looks roughly equivalent to boyne mountain but wider
09:36<Beirdo>Mount Washington... go ski that
09:36<npmr>no thanks
09:36<Beirdo>heh
09:36<npmr>if i had my pick, i go to big sky
09:36<Beirdo>we're all a bunch of wusses
09:36<npmr>or arapahoe
09:37<Beirdo>I'll settle for the caribbean
09:37<Beirdo>screw skiing
09:37<npmr>ha ha
09:37<npmr>what's the highest cliff you've ever skied off of?
09:37<Beirdo>I don't ski
09:37<npmr>i see
09:38[~]npmr 6m
09:38<Beirdo>I'd rather sit my fat ass in the chalet
09:38<npmr>maybe 7
09:38<Beirdo>or take a snowmobile down the mountain
09:38<Beirdo>snowmobile + moguls = fun destruction
09:38<npmr>jebus
09:38<Beirdo>muhahahah
09:39<Beirdo>took my cousin's off an 8 foot snow drift at about 80mph once
09:39<Beirdo>that was fun
09:39<Beirdo>until you land. that hurts the ass
09:40<npmr>yeah, landing on a 60% slope covered in fine powder helps
09:40<npmr>60 degree, not %
09:40<Beirdo>at least I had the presence of mind to lean back
09:40<Beirdo>so the track hit first :)
09:40<npmr>heh
09:40<Beirdo>skis first at 80mph would mean ME flying at 80mph
09:40<Beirdo>ouchie
09:41<Beirdo>the things stupid teenagers will try
09:41<Beirdo>of course, he rolled the same sled at 70mph
09:41<kvandivo>they had snowmobiles then?
09:41<Beirdo>that was fun
09:41<bendy24>o0
09:41<Beirdo>we just finished fixing it, and he rolled it
09:42<Beirdo>then we had to fix it again
09:42<npmr>http://arapahoebasin.com/images/abasin_trailbig.jpg <-- the upper east wall is a lot of fun
09:42<bendy24>hhh snomobiles
09:42<bendy24>ahhh
09:42<bendy24>ride one for a day
09:42<bendy24>fix it for a week
09:42<kvandivo>never done abasin.. thought about it a couple of times, but i've alway find myself going back to Breck
09:42<Beirdo>yeah, sometimes
09:42<Beirdo>he flipped it right in front of his house once
09:43<Beirdo>almost gave my aunt a heart attack
09:43<bendy24>no doubt
09:43<Beirdo>then he got up, climbed back on, and took off
09:43<Beirdo>somehow it ended up on its tracks
09:44<Beirdo>ah the joy of living in the snow belt
09:44<npmr>http://www.bigskyresort.com/images/site_images/trailmap/Tmap04-05South_05.jpg <-- note location of liberty bowl on the south face
09:45<npmr>i was sitting about 1/4 of the way down from the top one day catching my breath
09:45<npmr>somewhere off to the west, maybe two or three miles away
09:45<npmr>there was a small explosion, like park rangers detonating avalanche charges
09:45<npmr>it's a fairly common practice
09:46<npmr>about twenty seconds after the explosion i felt and heard a shock wave rush through the snow i was sitting on
09:46<npmr>and i was sitting right in the middle of a bowl full of snow on a pretty steep incline
09:46<Beirdo>eek
09:47<kvandivo>and you said to yourself, "enough of a break. time to ski"
09:48<npmr>yeah, there's really nothing that'll light a fire under your ass like the threat of being buried alive
09:48<kvandivo>fire could have been a good thing, though
09:48<npmr>the snow stayed put, but i didn't go back to that bowl that day
09:50<Beirdo>that's a bit worse than being skating on the middle of a lake when the pressure cracks boom
09:50<Beirdo>that scares the piss right outta you though
09:51<Beirdo>especially when you know you are like half a mile from shore, and the water's hundreds of feet deep
09:51<npmr>heh
09:52<npmr>what, georgian bay?
09:52<Beirdo>that's when you head for shore
09:52<Beirdo>nah, muskoka lakes
09:52<Beirdo>close though :)
09:52<npmr>ah
09:52<Beirdo>right by Georgian Bay
09:52<npmr>yes
09:52<Beirdo>I grew up on Lake Joseph
09:52<kvandivo>house boat?
09:52[~]kvandivo runs and hides.
09:53<Beirdo>OK, about 15 feet from it
09:53<Beirdo>luser :)
09:53<npmr>i grew up in michigan
09:53<Beirdo>although in the summer, I was in the lake as much as possible
09:53<Beirdo>ah, the other side of de lake
09:53<Beirdo>cool
09:53<kvandivo>npmr: sounds like you need to do Mount Bohemia
09:54<Beirdo>my cousins have a cottage in Mio (or was it in Fairview, can't remember)
09:54<Beirdo>nice place to go to relax
09:54<npmr>oh, porcupine mountains.... nice
09:54<npmr>never skied there before
09:54<kvandivo>the 'resort' is quite new, from what i understand
09:55<kvandivo>sounds like you're man enough to handle it, though..
09:55<kvandivo>personally, i'm staying at least 4 hours away from it
09:58[~]Beirdo hands kvandivo a toboggan
09:58<Beirdo>have fun
09:58<Beirdo>:)
09:58<kvandivo>some of the pictures from their site don't look safe for toboggans
09:58<Beirdo>I wonder if the ski hills here will let you use a toboggan on them?
09:58<Beirdo>bah
09:59<Beirdo>if it's safe for skis, it's safe for toboggans if you know what yer doing :)
09:59<Beirdo>if not... well, a straight line to a tree down a mountain...
09:59<Beirdo>you just have to be a certain kind of insane to try it
09:59<Beirdo>heh

14:19<[|^__^|]>yes, but that' not what he asked

14:19<[|^__^|]>oh, available
14:19<[|^__^|]>yeah
14:20<[|^__^|]>dpkg -l is just for what's installed on your system
14:20<[|^__^|]>it queries the local installed-package database
14:20<[|^__^|]>apt-cache works on the apt listings
14:20<[|^__^|]>which are the packages available for installation
14:20<[|^__^|]>you don't need root for apt-cache
14:20<[|^__^|]>so for example, you just do "apt-cache search wall"

14:25<vaxen>what packages do i need for LAMP?
14:25<[|^__^|]>that depends on what you mean by LAMP
14:25<[|^__^|]>Python? Perl?
14:26<@mikegrb>LAMP expands to php
14:26<[|^__^|]>And do you *really* want MySql, or are you going to use the more sensible Postgres?
14:26<[|^__^|]>mikegrb: oh, that's new
14:26<vaxen>apache2 php mysql
14:26<[|^__^|]>vaxen: is there some application you have in mind?
14:26<@mikegrb>not really
14:26<kvandivo>sudo apt-get install electricity cord socket bulb shade
14:26<[|^__^|]>sudo apt-get install lavaps
14:26<vaxen>[|^__^|]: never used postgres before though
14:27<[|^__^|]>vaxen: it has transactions, which means your data aren't subject to randomness like they are in MySQL
14:27<[|^__^|]>of course, most apps shouldn't be using an SQL server anyway, but I digress
14:27<[|^__^|]>vaxen: install the pieces you need
14:27<vaxen>[|^__^|]: why not?
14:27<[|^__^|]>vaxen: it's needless overhead for most tasks

14:28|-|mode/#linode [+o caker] by ChanServ
14:28<@mikegrb>[|^__^|]: right, and postgres having tansactions is realavent to a comparison why?
14:28<vaxen>[|^__^|]: atleast it helps centralise a storage solution, instead of each app having their own storage format
14:28<[|^__^|]>vaxen: each app has their own table format *anyway*
14:29<kvandivo>would be hard to get around that
14:29<[|^__^|]>mikegrb: I guess if you didn't mind breaking your data, an SQL server without ACID isn't such a big deal
14:29<@mikegrb>kvandivo: two columns, name and value
14:29<kvandivo>true
14:29<[|^__^|]>there are lots of good simple formats out there
14:29<@mikegrb>[|^__^|]: so you just ignore that mysql supports transactions to make you choice better?
14:30<[|^__^|]>oh, did they add that?

14:52<vaxen>given debian is so concern about stability, i assume testing shouild be pretty rock solid
14:52<npmr>it generally is
14:53<npmr>it not entirely accurate, but here goes:
14:53<vaxen>gentoo unstable is real unstable
14:53<npmr>stabile, secure, up-to-date
14:53<npmr>pick two
14:53<vaxen>secure up2date

14:54<vaxen>thats too dodgy for me
14:54[~]mikegrb uses it
14:54<vaxen>testing will do for me
14:54<@mikegrb>it really isn't as dodgy as the name implies
14:54<npmr>actually, debian unstable is usually as or more stable than the release versions of other distros
14:55<@mikegrb>yes
14:55<@mikegrb>can't remember the last time I had a problem
14:55<npmr>it's only "unstable" compared to debian's release
14:55<@mikegrb>it will be significantly more stable then gentoo
14:56<vaxen>i am starting to get pissed off with gentoo's QA
14:56<vaxen>some of the developers really donno what they are doing
14:56<npmr>i tried gentoo once
14:57<vaxen>the only reason i use it becoz its configurable and its faster then other distros
14:57<@mikegrb>faster is an illusion
14:57<vaxen>actually, ubuntu is just as fast as gentoo to my experience
14:57<@mikegrb>the binaries really aren't appreciably faster
14:57<@mikegrb>plus you waste a lot of time compiling stuff, so it ends up being slower
14:58<npmr>painting fire on the side of a car makes it about as much faster, relative to other cars, as "optimizing" your binaries for your machine makes them relative to other binaries
14:58<vaxen>npmr: nice way of putting it
14:59<@caker>There's a good reason for this --> http://www.theshore.net/~caker/uml/distroshare.png
14:59<vaxen>is debian unstable as up to date as gentoo?

15:00<vaxen>dinner time
15:00<vaxen>bbl
15:02<kthxbi>technically "unstable" doesn't mean "unstable software". It just means that the version numbers don't stay stable for years at a time

Does anyone here use Linode to run their webhosting businesses? If so would there be any downfalls to virtual vs. dedicated that you know of?
17:20<\begin{troll}>http://www.slamdance.com/anarchy/film_detail.asp?film_id=685 <-- Several people were injured shooting the sword-fighting scenes due to the ferocious nature of the actress Z Behl.
17:22<npmr>jcdanky, what applications do you use for your hosting?
17:22<kevinl>how often are reverse dns edits made?
17:22<jcdanky>cpanel, whm
17:22<npmr>kevinl, the reverse dns zones are updated a few times each day, if that's what you mean
17:23<kevinl>k
17:23<jcdanky>i would like to use sitestudio hence why I need dedicated or virtual
17:23<kevinl>eek sitestudio L)
17:23<jcdanky>bad?
17:23<kevinl>my old work ran that.. it was a piece of crap imo
17:23<jcdanky>oh yah?
17:23<jcdanky>hmm

17:23<jcdanky>know of anything better?
17:23<npmr>no, i mean, what are the workhorses of your operation, not what tools do you use to manage it
17:23<linbot>... but i mean, what are you going to do with 16581373 hosts in a single network, npmr ...
17:24<kevinl>i dunno. what i could tell is that once you start your site in sitestudio you cant really go in and edit anything or else itll break
17:24<npmr>apache i presume
17:24<kevinl>so your confined completely to teh sitestudio templates
17:24<kevinl>which are pretty ug.
17:24<jcdanky>im wanting it basically for users who don't know anything about html
17:24<jcdanky>http://www.hostingjunkie.com is my site
17:24<kevinl>have you ever used it?
17:25<jcdanky>nop
17:25<kevinl>speakeasy.net which is where i used to work used it for customers who didnt know html
17:25<kevinl>and i had to support it
17:25<kevinl>and i knew nothing about it
17:25<kevinl>and i hated it.
17:25<kevinl>but
17:25<kevinl>maybe its good
17:25<kevinl>i just hated it.
17:25<jcdanky>ahh
17:25<kevinl>:)
17:26<kevinl>is it free or commercial?
17:26<kvandivo>your speed test isn't large enough for me to get read on
17:26<kevinl>i dont even remember
17:26<jcdanky>commercial
17:26<kevinl>ya
17:26<kvandivo>by the time i click on 'ok' save it.. it's already down
17:26<kevinl>do they let you try it yourself?
17:26<jcdanky>yah
17:26<jcdanky>you have to install it though
17:27<kevinl>ah
17:27<jcdanky>i can't cuz im on a shared hosting account
17:27<jcdanky>so i don't have root access
17:27<kevinl>well get a linode then :)
17:27<jcdanky>does anyone here use linode for hosting?
17:27<jcdanky>like selling hosting
17:27<kevinl>kinda
17:27<jcdanky>their gb is very low compared to dedicated
17:28<kevinl>i just got mine yesterday
17:28<jcdanky>i can get 1200gb/mo for $90/mo with surpass
17:28<jcdanky>theirs is completely managed as well
17:28<kevinl>ya im hoping i dont use up my bandwidth
17:28<jcdanky>although i assume it wouldn't be hard to do myself though
17:28<kevinl>im just messin around tho with the cheapest one
17:28<jcdanky>im pretty good at learning
17:30<jcdanky>how about firewalls and stuff?
17:30<kevinl>what about em

22:22<@caker>tronix: looks good here
22:22<tronix>when I ping a TP router, 0% loss

22:23<@caker>look like?
22:23<tronix>but any Linode at TP, 50-75% loss
22:23<tronix>one sec
22:23<tronix>trying to find out how to force mtr to using v4 :)
22:23<@caker>tronix: different subnets take different routes
22:23<tronix>(my v6 tunnel is broken due to a bug)
22:23<@caker>tronix: this is likely an issue along a route elsewhere
22:23<tronix>ah, -4.. one sec
22:23<tronix>caker: unlikely because
22:23<cmantito>agh. mtr is gui.
22:23<cmantito>didn't expect that
22:23<tronix>folks saw same thing a hour ago
22:24<tronix>multiple linodes, multiple folks
22:24<@caker>tronix: that was something else
22:24<tronix>okay.. mtr, one sec
22:24<tronix>looks like it cleared up.
22:24<tronix>go figure. ;)
22:24<tronix>cmantito: actually, I've got mtr running in text mode
22:25<tronix>looks slick, agreed.
22:25<@caker>ping is pretty much useless when trying to find the point of the problem, honestly
22:25<cmantito>oh?
22:25[~]cmantito tries text mode
22:25<tronix>caker: it's not bad as a first order estimator
22:25<@caker>traceroute is second to pings, but mtr++
22:25<cmantito>oh wow
22:25<cmantito>that is slick.
22:25<tronix>indeed
22:25<@caker>pings don't tell me crap
22:26<@caker>"ok, so it's got packet loss somewhere between you and the IP"
22:26<cmantito>heheh
22:26<@caker>it could be one of 100 hops
22:26<tronix>caker: yeah but if you matches it with traceroute :)
22:26<cmantito>I get packet loss between me and host52....at...
22:26<@caker>I'm not buying :)
22:26<cmantito>catfive.kevinsnet.com
22:26<cmantito>my router :)
22:27<tronix>caker: which is essentially what mtr does. find path then check characteristics of each.
22:27<tronix>mtr is more integrated and a better tool, agreed.
22:27<tronix>but saying that ping doesn't have value as a rough 'is there even an issue, maybe?' first-order look
22:27<@caker>and a traceroute only goes through/displays each hop ONCE, and at that time, there might not be a problem
22:27<@caker>I just don't bother with either anymore, I go straight to mtr ..
22:27<tronix>heh
22:27<tronix>yeah, looks slick.
22:28<tronix>cmantito: heh, didn't know it *had* a gui mode
22:28[~]tronix goes to check it out
22:29<cmantito>tronix: happened by default for me
22:29<cmantito>maybe cause I'm running X
22:29<tronix>i am too
22:29<tronix>apparently my setup just defaults to text, probably a Gentoo thing
22:29<tronix>ahh I didn't build with GTK support
22:29<tronix>correcting that right now. ;)
22:30<tronix>probably gotta remember to run 'mtr -t -4' for time being, til I get my v6 tunnel fixed
22:30<tronix>apparently, I discovered a new Cisco v6 bug.
22:31<tronix>(on my provider's side)
22:31<tronix>thanks caker/mikegrb for mtr recommendation
22:32<cmantito>yeah
22:32<cmantito>thanks a LOT.
22:32<cmantito>it's great.
22:33<@caker>thank mikegrb... I think it was him that turned me onto it
22:33<@caker>another cool tool is tcptraceroute
22:33<@caker>It'll tell you where along a route a certain TCP port is blocked (for instance)
22:33<tronix>ooh that's a good one, too.
22:33<tronix>also handy when a site's blocked icmp
22:33<@caker>yup
