12:09<fo0bar>I really liked the talks
12:09<fo0bar>bit too expensive to be worth it though
12:10<@caker>I'm back in nashville for the next few weeks to pack and wrap up stuff here (life), then moving back to NJ

13:46<blithe>Hey guys, I was curious why outbound ports 6667 are blocked on linode?
13:47<@caker>blithe: hello -- the atlanta datacenter blocks it upstream :( 6668 is open, however, but if that's not good enough submit a ticket and we'll migrate your Linode to another one of our facilities
13:47<blithe>Ah, gotcha.
13:47<blithe>Is it that big of a deal to move datacenters?
13:47<blithe>I don't want to be a pain.
13:48<@caker>Not at all, it's all automated on our end
13:48<blithe>Neato. Does IP change?
13:48<@caker>(grr, switched keyboards)
13:48<@caker>You'll get a new IP, and then a button appears in the LPM to perform the move when you're ready
13:49<@caker>I suggest resizing your disk image smaller to make the transfer go more quickly
13:49<blithe>Well, my partition size is maxed out, but I'm using very little of the space.
13:49<@caker>right, you can resize it by clicking on the image and entering a new size (need to shutdown first)
13:50<@caker>so, figure your used space and add about 10% or so
13:50<blithe>Will do, thanks man.
13:50<blithe>Much appreciated.
13:50<@caker>not a problem :)
13:51<blithe>It also seems Atlanta blocks 6667 inbound.
13:51<@caker>they do... :/
13:51<blithe>But that's not really a big deal to me.
13:51<@caker>what network are you trying to reach?
13:52<blithe>Well, I'm currently on freenode and oftc on alternate ports.
13:52<@caker>OFTC has got 6668 open, and then other popular networks can do irc-ssl, which is like port 6690 or something
13:52<blithe>But, there's a few private networks that only open 6667.
13:52<blithe>Even though I've asked for alternate ports.
13:53<blithe>Aight, shutting down. Thanks again.
13:53|-|blithe [] has quit [Quit: leaving]
14:23<@mikegrb>oftc does ssl too!

14:38<h00s_>caker: about new kernel, load average is now ok (load average: 0.00, 0.03, 0.00), with 2.6.20-linode28 it was ~0.6
14:38|-|h00s_ changed nick to h00s
14:39<@caker>cool, thanks ... time to make Latest 2.6 point to it, methinks
14:39<h00s>yeah, i think so too. i have encountered no other problems, seems all ok

15:02<h00s>caker: oh, just one more thing, on front page distribution list update centos 4.0 to 5.0 :)
15:02<@caker>got it, thanks
15:07|-|afv [] has joined #linode
15:09<Sputnik7>so Linode is not technically a web host, its more of server hosting and I can run what I want on them?? I just have some domains that the company i registered them with is going out of business and i need to move them over to some place else, can Linode do that or do i have to move them to a registrar then host on Linode?
15:09|-|linville [] has joined #linode
15:09<anderiv>Sputnik7: that's correct.
15:10<Sputnik7>can Linode be the registrar for my domains or do i need to move them to like godaddy and then host with linode?
15:10<kvandivo>if you already have domains, you shouldn't need to 'move' them
15:10<anderiv>Sputnik7: they're not a registrar (at this point anyway).
15:11<kvandivo>oh wait.. nevermind.. let me read everything next time before talking
15:11<Sputnik7>i registered my domains and the company i registered them with is going out of business, so if i don't move them i believe they go out to public after 60 days or something
15:12<opello>you need to transfer them to another registrar, and then using that registrar you would point the nameserver entries to linode's dns
15:12<Sputnik7>gotcha thats what i was thinking
15:12<opello>assuming you registered with a company that registered your domains, gave you webspace, etc
15:12<Sputnik7>thank you for the information everybody
15:12<Sputnik7>yes opello exactly i regsiterd with my old webhost cheaper than godaddy, i know why now though since they going out of business :D
15:13<Bdragon>Sputnik7: Your old webhost is probabaly not the actual registrar then... What's the domain?
15:13<opello>but they would probably have to issue the transfer, or at least permit transfers on the domain
15:14<Sputnik7>yeah the owner told me to make an account on like but they want 200$ just to make an account if i'm reading it correctly
15:14<Bdragon>The registrar is ENOM, INC.
15:14<opello>i use godaddy, but just for a registrar, not hosting, otherwise there's a bunch of them - probably hasn't screwed anyone over :)
15:15<Sputnik7>alright i guess i coul go back to godaddy but their tech support was mad slow the first time i had to transfer
15:15<opello>yeah, they also don't seem to notify the .org whois people about changes
15:16<Bdragon>I use dyndns for dns services. They recently got their accreditation, so they are my registrar too now. :)
15:17<opello> isn't bad either, for dynamic dns stuff
15:17<Bdragon>The funny thing is
15:17<Bdragon>I don't use dyndns for any dynamic services
15:17<opello>can't run your own dns?
15:18<opello>or not worth it...
15:18<blithe>It usually makes more sense to have it hosted.
15:18<Bdragon>Transfer of administrative overhead to third party ;)
15:18<blithe>Plus a service like is free DNS.
15:18<opello>yeah, i use zoneedit
15:18<Bdragon>I use zoneedit on a couple of zones too
15:20<Bdragon>See, I'd rather have "really reliable" than "free" for some of my zones, ya know?
15:20|-|linville [] has quit [Read error: Operation timed out]
15:21<Sputnik7> says i dont have an account there anymore, but they still spam my email every 2 weeks
15:21<opello>how thoughtful of them
15:21<opello>you might have to request your account id
15:21<Sputnik7>oh im on that screen, requesting says i don't hav ean account there
15:21<Bdragon>BTW, whatever happened to Alice's Registry? No site updates for a long time now...
15:21<Sputnik7>but my spam folder says otherwise
15:22<Sputnik7>no idea dragon first i've seen it
15:23<Sputnik7>if i registered at to become a registrar and i give htem the 200$, do i have to keep paying 10$ a year afterwords for my domain or is that mine to keep forever?
15:23<@linbot>New news from forums: Kernel: (Latest 2.6) in Announcements <>
15:24<blithe>Sputnik7: I think is for domain resalers?
15:24<blithe>Register wholesalers.
15:24<blithe>You shouldn't have to pay $200 to register.
15:25<Sputnik7>i couldn't find a place for just to make a free account
15:25<Sputnik7>they wanted me to buy like 200$ in credits or some shit
15:25<iggy>they aren't for registering domains, they are for reselling registry services
15:25<Sputnik7>i was just wondering cause im not totally grokking wtf does and why the owner of past place wants me to use it for transfer of domain
15:26<Bdragon>How do you ask them to release the transfer codes?
15:26<Sputnik7>if you talking to me bdragon ima tell him on IRC to do it lol
15:27<opello>Sputnik7: probably for easiness on his part, transferring to the same registrar
15:27<Bdragon>Anyway, you have to find a target registrar, unlock the domain at the source registrar, and authorize the transfer...
15:28<opello>and $OtherGuy will probably have to unlock then accept the transfer
15:28|-|linville [] has joined #linode
15:28<opello>or after a week it goes or some time period
15:28<Sputnik7>my domains should be unlocked
15:28<Sputnik7>soon as i found out they closing down i think i did that
15:28<Bdragon>Then you just need the transfer codes. (what are those damn things called again?)
15:28<Sputnik7>unlocking was where godaddy jerked me around years ago when i had them
15:29<Bdragon>Yeah, registrars used to be able to screw the registrant over with register-lock, but not anymore
15:31<Sputnik7>okay thank you all for the help, it's cool if I just lurk here right?
15:31<Bdragon>Think it's just called "authcode"

19:09<raman>hi, anyone around?
19:13<jvaughan>I am
19:13<Pryon>I'm not
19:13<Pryon>!seen anyone
19:13<@linbot>Pryon: I have not seen anyone.
19:13<Pryon>apparently not.
19:14<raman>I'm looking to migrate my fedora core linode to centos 5
19:14<raman>What I really want to do is setup my centos5 offline (while my fedora linode stays running), then just upload it and activate it
19:15<raman>Any relevant experiences?
19:16<raman>So basically once I upload it, I would run this script to create the devices right?
19:17<@caker>then edit fstab, start a getty on tty0 in inittab...
19:17<@caker>that's about it
19:18<raman>if I want to base it on your existing centos 5 distro...
19:19<raman>then I create that first, download it to my machine, and then I guess I would need something that runs your script in reverse?
19:20<raman>or is it just easier to build it from scratch
19:20<@caker>All the script does is just make a few /dev/ nodes
19:20<@caker>and there'd be no need to remove them on a physical box
19:20<raman>Ok, so if I download the prebuilt centos5 linode, I should be able to run it no problem on my own uml install
19:21<@caker>If you know what you're doing with UML, yes :)
19:21<raman>hmm, well, I don't :-(
19:21<@caker>Network setup can be a little tricky
19:21<@caker>Then install CentOS on your Real Box into a partition, and then lob it off up into your Linode once you're done
19:22<raman>thx caker, sounds like a plan

21:34<elliottf>i dont think so
21:34<@caker>perhaps you want #uml then, not #linode
21:34<elliottf>i saw alot of logs about people discussing uml here
21:35<Smark>caker, you know of any backup alternatives to rdiff-backup that are resumable? atleast at the file-list level
21:35<elliottf>im not fimilar with the irc plugin how can i get there from here?
21:35<Smark>/join #uml
21:35<Smark>if its supported
21:36<elliottf>not workin
21:36<elliottf>thats what would work for the non plugin i thought
21:36<Battousai>you'll have to use your own irc client
21:36<Smark>go to in your browser, they might have a cgi-irc client there
21:37<Battousai>they have browser links, but not a cgi client

22:01<warewolf>elliottf: and look on the forums next time :)
22:01<elliottf>im using
22:01<elliottf>my host is 2.6.
22:02<warewolf>are you talking about a linode?
22:02<elliottf>no, thats why i said it might be off topic
22:02<warewolf>no idea then, sorry.
22:02<elliottf>its just on this machine running fc6
22:02<warewolf>good luck
22:03<warewolf>(that wasn't sarcasm, I was honestly wishing you well on fixing your problem. I have nothing against fedora)
