00:04<Dreamr3>hahaha
00:04<Dreamr3>i have no interesting in writing a webserver and framework from scratch
00:05<Dreamr3>it's good and readable code... the app passes all tests, and runs well in production... when the framework gets a bug fix, so do i
00:05<Dreamr3>i like using a framework
00:05<Dreamr3>i guess that's just a ideology diff
00:05<@mikegrb>Dreamr3: everything from warewolf is a flame
00:06<Dreamr3>mikegrb: ah
00:06<@mikegrb>Dreamr3: or were you taling about the url?
00:06<Dreamr3>mikegrb: thanks for telling me
00:06<Dreamr3>mikegrb: hey
00:06<@mikegrb>hey
00:06<Dreamr3>mikegrb: why should i get a big linode and not a dedicated box?
00:06<Dreamr3>any ideas?
00:06<Dreamr3>i need lots of ram
00:06<@mikegrb>it depends on your priorities/needs
00:06<Dreamr3>i can get 1gig for $129
00:07<@mikegrb>if ram is a large concern, you are likely better off with a cheap dedicated
00:07<Dreamr3>*nods*
00:07<@mikegrb>just watch for hidden fees
00:07<Dreamr3>right, i already have one dedicated :-)
00:07<@mikegrb>reboots normally run $15-50
00:07<@mikegrb>some have a limit of 2 or 3 support tickets, then charge a fee, etc
00:07<Dreamr3>never had a problem with the planet
00:07<@mikegrb>but for a production enviroment, those aren't huge concerns
00:08<@mikegrb>since you aren't normally rebooting often, or doing funky things that have a chance of breaking the system
00:08<Dreamr3>yeah
00:08<Dreamr3>i really like linode, but Rails eats a lot of RAM
00:08[~]mikegrb nods
00:08<Dreamr3>what is extra ram these days?
00:08<Dreamr3>for linodes?
00:09<@mikegrb>a dedicated server with the console access/remote reboots etc like linode would be in the $250+/month range
00:09<@mikegrb>but if you can get by without the price drops
00:09<@mikegrb>I believe it's 20MB/$5
00:10<Dreamr3>i've only requested one remote reboot in like 2 years on this other box :-)
00:10<Dreamr3>they didn't charge :-)
00:10<@mikegrb>yeah
00:10<Dreamr3>but i agree, you start wanting things like local console you pay for those
00:10<@mikegrb>waiting is an annoyance though
00:10<Dreamr3>mikegrb: it was only a few minutes... hmmm
00:10<@mikegrb>I dread a host I can't reboot going down
00:11<Dreamr3>i like linodes too because i feel more people are looking after the boxes
00:11<@mikegrb>we have a 15 min max gaurantee from the DC
00:11<Dreamr3>ie, if the hardware itself fails you have more people yelling at you
00:11<@mikegrb>but often it is 20 minutes
00:11<Dreamr3>mikegrb: for reboots?
00:11<@mikegrb>if it's a box I can reboot from here, we are talking < 45 seconds
00:11<@mikegrb>yes
00:11<@mikegrb>they are just slow
00:12<@mikegrb>if we put in a ticket and then call them imediately, it's normaly around 10 minutes
00:12<Dreamr3>linode up 111 days
00:12<Dreamr3>:-)
00:13<Dreamr3>can you not remote reboot your boxes?
00:13<@mikegrb>most of them we can
00:13<@mikegrb>but one of the dcs screwed up where the hosts from one of the RPCs are plugged in
00:14<@mikegrb>so there are about 5 hosts we can't
00:14<Dreamr3>ick
00:15<Dreamr3>so if i wanted 1gig of memory, could i get a discount? :-)
00:15<Dreamr3>just curious
00:15<@mikegrb>heh
00:15<@mikegrb>I'm pretty sure chris would be willing to give at least some discount for that much extra ram
00:15<@mikegrb>but dunno how large it would be
00:15<erikh>tasty:
00:15<erikh># ifconfig | grep inet | awk -F: '{print $2}' | awk '{print $1}' | grep -v fe | grep -v 127
00:16<erikh>complete hack but handy when your boss needs an excel sheet quick
00:16<Dreamr3>mikegrb: the boxes still are mirrored SATA, right?
00:16<@mikegrb>newer is sata, older pata
00:16<@mikegrb>but yes, all mirored
00:16<warewolf>haa
00:16<Dreamr3>pata?
00:16<erikh>parallel ata
00:16<warewolf>mikegrb: everything from me is not a flame :P PHP, Rails, and lighttpd just suck :)
00:17<erikh>I like rails
00:17<erikh>but it's not the end all
00:17<Dreamr3>ah, you mean boring old ata :
00:17[~]erikh is taking a permanent^Wextended vacation from writing mod_perl apps
00:17<Dreamr3>is PATA the new thing to make it sound cooler?
00:17<Dreamr3>warewolf: i agree with you PHP sucks
00:17<warewolf>erikh: cool, so you speak mod_perl too
00:18<warewolf>erikh: do you go the Mason route or do you write your own handlers from scratch?
00:18<erikh>one place I stayed on with just a few weeks had mason/etc setup very similarly to rails with some in-house libs
00:18<warewolf>erikh: contractor?
00:18<erikh>but the other places i've worked at were all custom jobs
00:18<erikh>warewolf: no, code was cool environment not so much
00:19<erikh>but most of the time I contract these days
00:19<warewolf>erikh: heh, know what I thought when I saw RequestTracker (RT) for the first time?
00:19<erikh>?
00:19<erikh>I've never looked at RT's guts
00:19<warewolf>erikh: "God damn. This app is written exactly the way I'd do it. Seriously."
00:20<warewolf>I was shocked
00:20<warewolf>it uses Mason the right way
00:20<erikh>I try to stay away from the web in my hobby time :)
00:20<warewolf>and doe sessions the right way
00:20<warewolf>yeah, I'm using RT at work now
00:20<erikh>I do dig on ruby though, even if rails isn't the end-all
00:20<warewolf>my SysAdmin plate is too full
00:20<warewolf>erikh: yeah I don't have anything against Ruby itself yet, just RoR.
00:20<erikh>it's a very slick and clean language
00:21<erikh>and has enough to remind me of perl to keep me comfortable.
00:21<warewolf>haha
00:21<warewolf>after years of writing/maintaining code you learn how NOT to write unmaintainable code
00:21<warewolf>(which is the problem with 90% of perl code, it's line noise without any comments)
00:21<erikh>eh
00:22<erikh>it's easy to write maintainable perl
00:22<Dreamr3>erikh: i agree, ruby can be very readable
00:22<erikh>you just have to know how to program... something that a lot of perl programmers don't
00:22<erikh>(IMO)
00:22<Dreamr3>and almost explain itself
00:22<Dreamr3>erikh: i find it a joy
00:22<warewolf>erikh: go look at the PHPbb source
00:22<erikh>warewolf: I *have* done that.
00:22<warewolf>erikh: that shit scares me, almost zero comments.
00:22<erikh>what a wretched mess
00:22<warewolf>yeah
00:22<erikh>warewolf: well it'd screw up their "plugin" system
00:23<erikh>hell, you can't even run patch against it
00:23<warewolf>I have half a mind to write a html::mason based threadded forums app that is the end-all and fucking secure to boot
00:23<warewolf>that'll happen once I finally snap
00:23<erikh>warewolf: for every one of you, there are 60 people doing it in RoR.
00:23[~]warewolf twitches
00:23[~]erikh is writing an AJAX'ed up IMAP client in RoR
00:24<erikh>it's something that I think would be useful
00:24<erikh>squirrel is nice but isnt' exactly gmail, either.
00:24[~]warewolf shrugs
00:24<erikh>I have a decent imap layer so far.
00:24<warewolf>I use squirrel in emergencies
00:24<warewolf>thunderbird otherwise
00:24<erikh>warewolf: I'm cloning the gui functionality of Mail.app
00:25<erikh>it's my little pet and I've been working on it for almost a year now heh
00:25<warewolf>what's that, the mac mail client?
00:25<erikh>yeah
00:25[~]warewolf has no mac
00:25<erikh>it's a simple interface that would work well on teh web
00:25[~]warewolf prefers to build his PCs from scratch
00:25[~]warewolf shudders
00:25<erikh>oh, i'm not having that argument
00:25<warewolf>especially at the latent fuck-ups by apple on grease
00:25[~]erikh has plenty of PC's
00:28<@mikegrb>http://thegrebs.com/~michael/tivo.png <-- for the win
00:48<warewolf>oh, you turned on the mac tivo republish stuff
00:56<erikh>mikegrb: hey there, I was wondering if I could get that 240 migration nwo that you guys have some available?/
01:08<@caker>erikh: you've got a ticket open, right?
01:08<@caker>nm, just found it
01:09<erikh>caker: yeah, I just replied to it
01:09<@caker>I'll set it up for you now
01:09<erikh>if you guys need to bill me extra for this month, let me know, I might need to wait until tuesday
01:09<@caker>nah
01:09<@caker>you will need to migrate to Fremont (ip change)
01:09<erikh>that's fine
01:10<erikh>I will need to make some dns changes, but I can do that in minutes and from what you told me in the ticket I'll be able to switch conveniently
01:10<@caker>ya
01:10<erikh>that is so nice. ;)
01:14<@caker>erikh: ok, info in your ticket

15:51<erikh>I honestly haven't checked, but I have ram nwo, which does have a noticeable improvement :)

16:51<cc06>hello
16:51<@caker>hello
16:52<cc06>I am having some issues with netowrking on host35, I am not sure if it is something I am doing wrong or not though
16:52<cc06>I opened a support ticket
16:52<@caker>cc06: I updated your ticket a bit ago
16:52<cc06>cool
16:53<cc06>I tried that, and still does not work
16:53<cc06>I will try that on the new profile
16:53<@caker>I can see your console -- so, run for me: ifconfig && route -n
16:54<cc06>doh..just shut it down
16:54<cc06>gimme a min
16:56<cc06>alrighty
16:57<@caker>cc06: did you happen to signup for the xen beta at some point?
16:57<@caker>doesn't look like it
16:57<cc06>I had signed up, but never actually transferred over
16:58<@caker>ok, that's the problem then
16:58<@caker>one sec
16:58<cc06>oh
16:59<cc06>I had a huge project come through for work, and never had a good chunk of time to migrate, I then figured it would be best to let someone who would really use it
16:59<cc06>thanks for your quick response :)
17:00<@caker>cc06: yeah, your node had its IP re-assigned to an IP for the fremont datacenter... I've reverted it back to your old IP, but you'll need to reboot
17:00<cc06>np
17:01<@caker>curious how you had your IP changed, but the migration was never configured ... did you speak to someone about un-doing the migration setup?
17:01<cc06>nope
17:01<@caker>or perhaps, I goofed
17:01<@caker>ok, my fault then :)
17:01<cc06>no worries :)
17:02<cc06>I use my linode for experimenting with linux/personal hosting so its not biggie for me
17:02<cc06>Im just glad your support rocks as much as it does ;)
17:04<@caker>we're conditioned to skip heartbeats whever we get paged

17:31<Dreamrr_3>can someone get in on the Xen stuff yet?
17:33<warewolf>wow
17:33<warewolf>you can (via a patch) use x509v3 certificates.
17:33<warewolf>er
17:33<warewolf>in openssh.
17:52<encode>why is that wow-worthy?
17:53<warewolf>I can use the same SSL certificate for everything, and verify it's path back to my own certificate authority.
17:53<warewolf>I can reject clients connecting that aren't using a certificate signed by my CA

18:24<Dreamrr_3>anyone use qmail here?
18:24<Dreamrr_3>encode: : monit works well for what it dos
18:24<encode>caker: is it hard to configure?
18:24<Dreamrr_3>with monit you have to THINK of the rules you write...
18:24<Dreamrr_3>ou don't just apt-get install monit, done

19:24<Dreamrr_3>caker: any idea when it'll be "Ready" :-)
19:25<@caker>Dreamrr_3: no clue, I refuse to move to it just to be cool -- it's gotta actually work better than UML
19:25<Dreamrr_3>it doesn't? :-)
19:25<@caker>no -- stability and IO QoS issues

19:43<@caker>SPF records are just TXT records in the zone, correct?
19:44[~]caker is throwing around the idea of a managed DNS service add-on for Linode members
19:44<@caker>(free)
19:47<gpd>caker: correct on the spf - and great job on the idea :)
19:48<@caker>gpd: yeah, seems fairly straight forward
19:48<tierra>secondary and primary?
19:48<tierra>multiple domains?
19:48<tierra>etc...
19:48<@caker>tierra: yes, multiple even ... I think also allowing for slaves, too (linode nameservers as master, and also linode nameservers as slaves)
19:49<TheFirst>caker:you stole my idea! :P
19:49<tierra>awesome

19:50|-|Electric1lf changed nick to ElectricElf
19:52<Dreamrr_3>caker: yes
19:53<Dreamrr_3>caker: you still using coldfusion for everything?
19:53<@caker>I've also considered some type of managed/shared SPAM filtering thing, but I've got no clue for the implementation
19:53<@caker>Dreamrr_3: for display stuff, yeah
19:54<Dreamrr_3>caker: will you still give the extra storage and stuff is someone pays for a year after they signup?
19:54<TheFirst>doesn't SA allow for remote connections? that'd seem easy to setup...or easy enough anyway
19:54<@caker>Dreamrr_3: yes
19:54<@caker>TheFirst: so what, people set our SA/MTA IP as their domain's MX?
19:55<Dreamrr_3>i'm thinking of setting up a dedicated e-mail server next
19:55<TheFirst>no...the MTA forwards to SA through spamc
19:55<Dreamrr_3>caker: i think simple mail setup is easy, but dealing with anything outside the lines will be harder
19:55<TheFirst>at least that's what i got out of a post i was reading on the topic on the qmr forums
19:56<@caker>TheFirst: the end user's MTA does that? ok, I get it
19:56<Dreamrr_3>i want to go with postfix, just wish it had sqlite support
19:56<TheFirst>yah...like the end user would setup qmail/exim/whatever to use the remote SA as another filter step
19:56<@caker>ok
19:57<@caker>that's not as easy as someone pointing their MX somewhere else, but that makes sense to me
19:57<TheFirst>no but on your end there's not much setup
19:58<@caker>oh, see along with the spam service, I wouldn't mind doing backup (even primary+backup) MX service, too .. but again, I've got no idea how that would work real-world

19:58<TheFirst>well backup would be easy to setup ... but you'd get nailed with spam
19:59[~]caker spend a month straight in 1997 or something setting up sendmail, haven't screwed with it since (besides binary updates)
19:59<TheFirst>qmail ... so easy to setup
19:59<TheFirst>and qmailrocks just rocks for documentation ;)
20:03<Dreamrr_3>caker: i'd suggest postfix :-)
20:03<TheFirst>Dreamrr_3: wanna take this outside? :P
20:03<Dreamrr_3>i evaled/bought the best books a while back and postfix was what I came to like
20:03<Dreamrr_3>i didn't consider sendmail

20:54<@mikegrb>Dreamrr_3: but qmail is the only mailserver spammers use scanners specifically to find
20:55<Dreamrr_3>mikegrb: really now?
20:55<@mikegrb>yes
20:55<@mikegrb>they look for ips with qmail listening
20:56<@mikegrb>and then send messages to random to addresses with the target address as the from address
20:56<@mikegrb>and qmail politely sends the spam to the intended recipient
20:58<Dreamrr_3>yeah :(
20:58<erikh>as with all things qmail, it depends on how it's patched
20:59<@mikegrb>but then it isn't qmail
20:59<erikh>heh.
20:59<@mikegrb>according to the license it can only be called qmail if it has no patches applied
20:59<erikh>well, let's not have that argument Mr. Bernstein. :)
20:59<erikh>wait, sorry... Dr. Bernstein
20:59<@mikegrb>Bernstein couldn't beat Bush in an IQ competition
20:59[~]erikh likes qmail, but isn't going to say it's bulletproof, either
21:00<erikh>then again, I also like sendmail.
21:00<@mikegrb>it's like anything from Bernstein, stinkier then my excrement after eating fo0bar's chili
21:00<erikh>I love daemontools.
21:01<erikh>daemontools is really, really nice.
21:01<erikh>although I just read about something called runit which is similar, and I'm eager to try it.

23:59<warewolf>caker- managed DNS is nice. Just do it correctly and do DNS updates via dynamic DNS.
