00:07-!-jcn [~jcn@207-237-244-88.c3-0.nyw-ubr2.nyr-nyw.ny.cable.rcn.com] has joined #linode
00:08<Pryon>Can't get to the console and host load is at ludicrous
00:08<Pryon>I hope it's not me
00:09<SelfishMan>What host?
00:09<Pryon>host28.fremont.linode.com, but I don't think that's the real host name
00:09<jkwood>Ludicrous speed!?!?
00:10-!-mikeage [~mmiller@mikeage.net] has left #linode []
00:10<Pryon>Ah, seems back to normal
00:10<Pryon>Host load is still high, but I'm getting a respnse now
00:10<jkwood>Well, at least it didn't go plaid.
00:10<Pryon>ha
00:12<mendel>Pryon: what's your load average? :)
00:12<mendel>i suppose that's still not representative
00:12-!-ijustam [~ija@c-68-51-94-8.hsd1.in.comcast.net] has joined #linode
00:13<ijustam>Does anyone have a script that will shut down the eth interface is bandwidth usage is too high?
00:13-!-ryan8403 [~ryan8403@home.ryanchewning.net] has left #linode [Leaving.]
00:13<Pryon>mendel: 10 minute avg is 1.25
00:13<SelfishMan>Not that I know of but it would be really easy to do
00:13<Pryon>I don't think it was me
00:14<ijustam>SelfishMan: yeah, just didn't want to do redundant work
00:15<ijustam>i'll probably make something over the weekend
00:16<SelfishMan>Just query the XML stats that linode provides and have it perform an ifdown if they are too high. You will of course have to turn it back on though
00:16<ijustam>yeah
00:16<ijustam>i was thinking of making it a cron job to run at 2am eveyr day or s.
00:17<ijustam>2am my time, at least
00:17<ijustam>midnight server time
00:17<ijustam>i assume bandwidth totals reset at midnight on the 1st of the month
00:21<ijustam>http://www.linode.com/members/info/?user=yourusername
00:21<ijustam>^-- still valid?
00:22-!-exor674 is now known as exor|zzz
00:22<charlie>tasaro: Your cryptic "Malicious Activity" complaint was very confusing, I can't exactly find out what's wrong with it, could you tell me?
00:25<charlie>oh, they think something malicious is happening on *my* box..
00:25-!-Trunet [~bd78bb8f@webuser.linode.com] has joined #linode
00:25<charlie>that's kind of strange, the ident for the connection says "mudoo" but i don't have a usernamed mudoo
00:25<charlie>*user named
00:28-!-SelfishMan [~SelfishMa@75-175-170-204.blng.qwest.net] has quit [Quit: SelfishMan]
00:30<Trunet>do you have any promotional code active right now? I want to migrate from amazon ec2 and I'd like some discount.
00:30-!-^GaveUp^ [gaveup@your.friendly.neighborhood.hellmouth.info] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:31<charlie>http://www.retailmenot.com/view/linode.com idk if they work, but there
00:31<Trunet>all is expired
00:32<Trunet>caker. you always post promotional coupons in wht
00:32<Trunet>give one :)
00:32-!-spasmface [~spasm@d122-111-44-9.mas17.nsw.optusnet.com.au] has joined #linode
00:32<Trunet>more storage will be nice
00:33<bd_>Trunet: there's a service in the works for NAS storage, but it's still very hush-hush on the details, it seems.
00:34<Trunet>no problem
00:34<Trunet>I just want to sign up a 1440 plan
00:34<bob2>don't think there are any promo codes atm
00:35<Trunet>2 month free will be nice
00:35<Trunet>anything
00:35<bob2>will or "would be"?
00:35<Trunet>(I'm brazilian, sorry for my english)
00:35<Trunet>(always learning)
00:35<charlie>bob2: haha
00:35<bd_>Trunet: most(?) of the time there are no promotion codes... they usually post them on webhostingtalk when they do have them
00:36<Trunet>I see
00:36<jkwood>Trunet: I haven't seen a single promotion code since I signed on here.
00:37<jkwood>There are referral codes, although I don't know how often those get used.
00:37<jkwood>I haven't used one, anyway.
00:37<charlie>if you want a service that'll give you tons of free space for registering, check out cheapvps.co.uk if you don't need IRC access or as flexible of cancellation rules as linode as: http://cheapvps.co.uk/specials
00:37<bd_>the referral codes don't give any kickback to the person signing up, I don't think
00:37<Trunet>no
00:37*charlie referred someone, i think they have like a month so far
00:37<charlie>bd_: they do if the person you refer keeps it for three months or something
00:37<Trunet>I'd search a lot, read a lot and likes linode
00:37<bd_>charlie: to you, or to that person?
00:37<Trunet>I don't want another vps host
00:37<Eman>ive got a 2 month promotion card that i havent decided on who's gonna get it
00:37<Trunet>hehehe
00:38<charlie>Trunet: then please accept that linode doesn't have any promotions at this time (that we know of)
00:38<Trunet>yes, I know...
00:38<Trunet>do you like linode?
00:38<Trunet>jkwood
00:38<bd_>(remember, most of the people aren't staff here - there might be a super secret discount code we don't know of ;)
00:38<jkwood>I love my linode.
00:38<charlie>bd_: if i refer someone who keeps their account for 3 months, then i get some credit
00:38<bd_>charlie: right - but /they/ don't
00:38<bd_>which is my point :)
00:39<jkwood>I use it to serve my website, as an IRC platform, and torrenting.
00:39<jkwood>erm... for, that is.
00:39<charlie>well yeah, that's not how referrals work though, i don't think
00:39<bd_>jkwood: linux ISOs and creative commons media, right?
00:39<bd_>charlie: http://blog.linode.com/2008/07/31/referral-system-annual-discounts/
00:39<charlie>yes i've read that
00:39<jkwood>I'm permanently seeding an iso for Slamd64.
00:39<charlie>i mean referrals don't usually give something to the person being referred
00:40<bd_>*nod*
00:40<jkwood>I occasionally pull a tv show that's on the net for free anyway, but that I can watch in my non-internet apartment.
00:40<bd_>some of them do though (Hi, dreamhost!)
00:40<Trunet>hehehe
00:40<bd_>and anyway the discussion came up when Trunet was looking for a discount, which being a referee wouldn't turn into :)
00:40<Trunet>I used dreamhost, liquidweb vps, amazon ec2(right now)
00:40<jkwood>If your dream is to have someplace that occasionally serves websites, and that you can get for free, then sure, DH is a great deal. ;)
00:40<bd_>Dreamhost still hasn't bothered deleting my account after I cancelled
00:41<Trunet>I hate liquidweb vps... slowwwwwww
00:41<charlie>bd_: are you paying anymore?
00:41<bd_>charlie: nope
00:41<bd_>all my quotas are zero
00:41<bd_>and my billing rates
00:41<bd_>but
00:41<charlie>bd_: haha
00:41<bd_>that doesn't seem to have hit the actual web hosts :)
00:41<StevenK>bd_: You can still log in and cause havoc? :-)
00:41<bd_>sure
00:42<charlie>well, i need sleep, i think i probably have a math test tomorrow or something like that
00:42<Trunet>the dallas dc of linode is theplanet?
00:42<bd_>Trunet: yes
00:42<charlie>Trunet: yeah
00:42<bd_>!download
00:42<linbot>http://www.linode.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=2636
00:42<bd_>^^^ links for ping/speed testing
00:42<Trunet>Is this datacenter that fas fire issues?
00:42<charlie>fremont is hurricane electric, newark is net access corporation, and i'm not sure what atlanta is
00:42<Trunet>has
00:42<charlie>Trunet: no, that's houston
00:42<bd_>StevenK: it's great, I've filed tickets to let them know (which was hard, because their ticketing system isn't designed for this) but they sort of shrugged it off
00:42<jkwood>Yeah. Dallas was not affected by the fires, no.
00:43<bd_>Trunet: also the datacenter that did blow up was fixed :)
00:43<Trunet>mtr for there is nice from brazil
00:43<bd_>(not linode's DC)
00:43<charlie>does anyone know if houston was affected by the hurricane?
00:43<Trunet>I know that
00:43<jkwood>Atlanta is NAP, I think. Or something like that.
00:43<bd_>charlie: it didn't go down, if that's what you meana
00:43<bd_>mean*
00:43<bd_>I hear they switched to generator power, but that's about it
00:43<charlie>ah, well thats good, another downtime would be pretty bad for them
00:43<jkwood>Houston may have been too far north.
00:43<jkwood>I know Dallas was.
00:44<charlie>yeah dallas definitely is/was
00:44<Trunet>so everybody loves linode
00:44<Trunet>nice
00:44<Trunet>I think I'll have to sign up
00:45<Trunet>without a discount coupon
00:47<Trunet>hey
00:48<Trunet>give me some referral code bd, charlie or jkwood
00:48<charlie>url: http://www.linode.com/?r=46cb6d6e7ae42fc9414f6c0c83a65045e67a2ea5
00:48<Trunet>I'll referral the first that post
00:48<Trunet>:)
00:48<charlie>code: 46cb6d6e7ae42fc9414f6c0c83a65045e67a2ea5
00:48<jkwood>Well, that was quick.
00:48<Trunet>charlie wins
00:48<Trunet>:)
00:48<jkwood>;)
00:49<charlie>jkwood: i had my browser open to the linode profile page coincidentally, i was looking up the status of my current referral :P
00:49<@mikegrb>lolz
00:49<jkwood>lol
00:49<fo0bar>lolz
00:49<Trunet>:)
00:49<jkwood>I don't mind. I may never give a referral, and that's okay with me.
00:50<jkwood>I'm in it for linbot.
00:50<charlie>it's pretty easy to refer people usually, i know a lot of people who have needs for VPSs
00:50<exor|zzz>I wish linode gave us free pizza
00:50<bob2>exor|zzz: $20 credit is like 2 pizzas!
00:51*linbot gives exor|zzz a large pepperoni
00:51<charlie>if only linode account credit was real money we could spend on pizza
00:51<Battousai>haha
00:52<Trunet>hahahaha
00:52<jkwood>Well, in a sense, it IS real money.
00:52<Trunet>Maybe they can deliver in Brazil?
00:53<jkwood>Think of it this way. Say you spend $3.10 a day on cigarettes. If you give that up, and put that money in a coffee can instead, you'll have over $11,000 in ten years.
00:53<Trunet>How many time they activate my account? I already receive a payment receipt email
00:54<jkwood>Trunet: They want to make sure you're a real person.
00:54<Trunet>No, I'm a bot
00:54*jkwood pours coffee down jadoba's tubes
00:54<jkwood>Most of the time, they activate your account within 15 minutes or less.
00:54<Trunet>That is in IRC talking(speaking bad english) and buying a VPS
00:55<Trunet>:)
00:55<Trunet>ok
00:55<Trunet>I'll wait a little more
00:55<jkwood>Which is why I'm caffeinating jadoba.
00:55<jkwood>There for a while, the average activation time was like 30 seconds.
00:56<bob2>the mean was mean
00:56<Trunet>some of you has a panel installed?
00:56<Trunet>cpanel, plesk or something else?
00:56<jkwood>Most of us just use the Linode Profile Manager.
00:56<jkwood>It's not Plesk or Cpanel, but it does the job.
00:56<jkwood>Well... it does SOME jobs.
00:56<bd_>or rather, it does an entirely different job
00:56<jkwood>I admin everything commando-style.
00:57<Trunet>It's to reseller
00:57<bd_>note: pending new accounts probably don't page anyone
00:57<Pryon>jkwood: TMI
00:57<bd_>Trunet: you could use whatever you used on EC2?
00:57<Trunet>some users don't have *nix abilities
00:58<Pryon>Trunet: those people should use two cans and a string
00:58<Trunet>in EC2 I just have one small instance
00:58<Trunet>with EBS and one IP
00:58<bd_>Trunet: did you have some kind of control panel for it?
00:58<Trunet>not right now
00:58<bd_>oh, nevermind then :)
00:58<bd_>I don't use panels, so I can't really recommend one... :|
00:58<Trunet>no problem
00:59<jkwood>Hmm... Who forgot the standard "please note that you are gaining root access on a Linux box that you configure yourself" warning?
00:59*jkwood blames path-

01:11<Peng_>Hmmm. So if I never ate again, I could like buy a car in 10 years? And a house in 200?
01:11<jkwood>Peng_: Depends on how much you spend on food.
01:12<jkwood>If you're eating nothing but Ramen, then I'm afraid that's a no-go.
01:12<jkwood>McDonald's Dollar menu... yes.
01:13<exor|zzz>caviar?
01:14<Peng_>I dunno how much I spend on food. I'm afraid to count.
01:14*Peng_ wanders off.
01:14<jkwood>The car wouldn't be a Chevy Aveo. That's for sure.
01:17*SelfishMan throws a day old McRib at jkwood
01:18*jkwood gladly eats it

03:35<Peng__>Oh damn. Dallas is finally becoming more reliable than my ADSL. :(
03:36<Eman>at least you arent on pppoe dsl
03:39<Peng_>What *is* PPPoE?
03:39<Peng_>I think I was on PPPoE, but a support tech told me to twiddle a setting and now I'm on something slightly different.
03:39*Peng_ shrugs.
03:40<Eman>username / password login stuffs
03:40<SelfishMan>PPPoE and PPPoA are the dominant technologies on ADSL connections
03:40<Eman>its pretty much high speed dialup
03:40<SelfishMan>Once in a while you see bridged or routed configs bu it's pretty rare
03:40<Eman>with all the same reliablilty
03:42<Eman>they do bridged dsl here, but it costs 4x the amount
03:42<SelfishMan>And do they bridge it and still make you do PPPoE?
03:42<Eman>no
03:43<SelfishMan>From a provider standpoint PPPoE is nice because it uses all the same methods of accounting as traditional dialup (PPP)
03:43<Eman>you get your own virtual circuit id and it looks just like a long ethernet connection
03:43<SelfishMan>Radius auth and acct makes it integrate seemlessly into any existing PPP environment
03:43<Eman>my isp never even bothered upgrading their billing system when they added dsl
03:43<SelfishMan>I've seen some that use a bridge through the DSL but the computer still has to do PPPoE to connect
03:44<Eman>it still counts hours and multiplies by my "hourly rate" of $0.00
03:46<Eman>all their user utilities are via telnet
03:46<Peng_>Maybe I'm not PPPoE then.
03:47<Eman>does your router just do dhcp to get an ip?
03:47*SelfishMan DHCPs Peng_
03:50<Peng_>My router uses DHCP to get an IP from my modem, which probably uses DHCP to get an IP from my ISP.
03:50<Peng_>My LAN isn't pretty. I plugged them in and they mostly worked, so.. :P
03:50-!-sveiss [~sveiss@splinter.brokenbottle.net] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
03:50*SelfishMan cringes
03:51<@mikegrb>lolz
03:51<Internat>lol
03:51<fo0bar>lolz
03:51<Internat>my network is convaluted, but atleast i know how its set up :)
03:52<Eman>same with mine
03:52<Internat>adsl/pppoe on the modem.. which does its own Nat to the 192.168.1.X network.. which has 192.168.1.254 in the dmz.. 192.168.1.254 is my linux firewall, which then routes to the 192.168.0.254 interface, and dishes out 192.168.0.x addresses
03:52<SelfishMan>I'm a firm believer that one of the biggest problems with security these days is too many devices that can just be plugged in out of the box without any additional config.
03:52*Peng_ coughs
03:53<Peng_>Hmm, why does it take 30ms to ping my modem?
03:53<SelfishMan>My outbound traceroute is a minimum of 6 hops before I even reach my ISP
03:53<SelfishMan>Peng_: Wireless probably
03:55<Peng_>SelfishMan: What wireless?
03:55<SelfishMan>Oh. That is really bad then
03:55<Peng_>:D
03:56<Peng_>It takes 1ms to ping my router, than another 30ms to cross tow 2 meter CAT 5 cable connecting them.

03:56<Peng_>the 2*
03:56<SelfishMan>Not too bad except for the homemade network splitter
03:57<SelfishMan>Not a long run to the other end I take it?
03:57<Eman>about 40feet max i'd guess
03:57<SelfishMan>That isn't too bad then
03:57<Eman>i'd run a second line, but the ceiling is drywalled up
03:58<SelfishMan>Damn I've done that kind of stuff too much!
03:58<Eman>hahaha
03:58<Eman>like my 10 year old dsl modem? :(
03:58<SelfishMan>As long as it runs
03:58<SelfishMan>The technology hasn't changed that much anyway
03:59<Eman>ya
03:59<Eman>i cant even use it to its fullest speeds
03:59<Peng_>Wait a minute. I can usually ping the outside world in, say, 90ms. If 30ms is just the modem, if that was solved, it would be 60ms?!
03:59<SelfishMan>Pretty much
04:00<Peng_>Augh!
04:00<Eman>from here (detroit area) to fremont: 75ms
04:01<SelfishMan>62ms to fremont, 78ms to dallas, 84ms to newark
04:01<Peng_>I'm not sure what's going on. I got a new modem a few months ago (for no real reason), and that improved things.
04:01<Peng_>Err, it improved my latency to the outside world, I mean.
04:02<SelfishMan>Peng_: What is the RTT to your first hop? The firewall type device?
04:02<Eman>42ms to newark, 53 to dallas
04:02<Peng_>SelfishMan: What do you mean? If I ping my router?
04:03<SelfishMan>Your config is You->router->modem->the rest of the world, right?
04:03<Eman>tracert to 66.220.1.60 and put it on the pastebin so we can see?
04:03<tozz>taling about speed, I've had this problem a while now and haven't found a solution. If I use my web server to host a file I get ~500kb/s down, that's ok (usually around 1mb/s for downloads closer to home) but when I download using SSH/SFTP I barely touch 100kb/s
04:04<tozz>talking*
04:04<Eman>sftp is always been slow for me
04:05<Eman>but then again, i usally only get about 150-220 from my linode
04:05<tozz>is the encryption that's terribly implemented or is it just the protocol? I would really like to know the reason :)
04:05<Peng_>SelfishMan: Right.
04:05<SelfishMan>Then ping your router
04:06<Peng_>SelfishMan: 1ms
04:06<SelfishMan>tozz: Encryption overhead
04:06<SelfishMan>Turn off encryption and try it and I bet the speed is pretty much where it is without SSH/SFTP
04:07<SelfishMan>Peng_: http://netspeed.stanford.edu
04:07<tozz>but seriously, that much overhead? sheesh :)
04:07<SelfishMan>It can detect some cabling issues and other strange problems
04:07<Peng_>Anyway, like I said, I'm very confused. IIRC, with my old modem, I could ping it in 13ms. With the new one, RTT to the outside world dropped by like 20ms. But how can that happen when 17ms is added right at the beginning?
04:07<SelfishMan>The ANL one is better but I can't remember the address
04:07<Peng_>SelfishMan: What is that, Java?
04:07<bob2>tozz: run top on both ends and see if cpu is the bottleneck
04:07<SelfishMan>Googling for "miranda anl" will probably work but that just looks wrong
04:07<tozz>yeah, gonna do that now actually
04:07<SelfishMan>Yeah, Java
04:08<bob2>tozz: also, scp is shit (if that's what you mean by ssh) - try rsync over ssh and it will probably be on-par with http (modulo cpu issues)
04:08<Peng_>SelfishMan: You mean http://miranda.ctd.anl.gov:7123/ ?
04:08<Peng_>SelfishMan: The otehr page links to it. :P
04:08<SelfishMan>That's the one
04:08<Peng_>I don't have Java.
04:08<SelfishMan>Like I said, googling for "miranda anl" is just not something you want in your history
04:08<Peng_>Heh
04:08<Peng_>If the cable connecting the modem and router was faulty, that could cause this, right?
04:09<Peng_>That cable has been in use for six years, so..
04:10<tozz>bob2: I use a piece of software called sftp-drive, it connects over ssh and initiates a sftp-server (part of openssh)
04:10<Eman>oh
04:10<Eman>sftp drive is slow as shit
04:10<bob2>ok
04:10<bob2>rsync is probably still faster
04:10<tozz>Eman: got any other recommendation for a win user?
04:10<Eman>windows file copying + sftpdrive = ohgodhowdidthishappen
04:10<tozz>hehe, I use total commander though
04:11<tozz>still affected by windows but not as severe
04:11<Eman>nah, i havent found anything that creates a drive like sftpdrive does
04:11<tozz>kk, it's blazing fast locally between virtual servers though ;)
04:12<tozz>guess I'll live with it
04:12<tozz>it's not cpu related at least, no usage indication at all

04:15<bob2>stock openssh doesn't include the null cipher, but you can rebuild it if you're interested
04:19<Eman>it could be the linode itself not having the cpu or w/e to allow it to run at full speed
04:20<bob2>didn't top just exclude that?
04:20<Eman>oh i didnt see that

05:43<chesty>i would suggest perl
05:44-!-Levia [~Levia@217-102-250-41.zeelandnet.nl] has quit [Quit: Bye]
05:45<agentbleubleu>can you give a more detailed answer svp
05:49<chesty>do you know perl?
05:52<agentbleubleu>no
05:52<chesty>then you are asking me to do it for you, no?
05:52<encode>much as I hate to admit it, perl isn't the answer. grep can do the job just fine, its just defining the regexp that agentbleubleu needs help with
05:52<encode>and the regexp still needs to be written if he's going to use perl anyway
05:52<agentbleubleu>yes this is what i suspect
05:53<chesty>grep usually looks at one line at a time
05:53<encode>chesty: have you ever read grep's man page?
05:53<chesty>nope
05:53<chesty>i can visualise how to do it in perl, not grep
05:53<encode> -C NUM, --context=NUM
05:53<encode> Print NUM lines of output context. Places a line containing -- between contiguous
05:53<encode> groups of matches.
05:54<chesty>so, what is NUM? 10, 20, 30?
05:54<chesty>is it always the same
05:55<chesty>what do you do with all the lines between the match and match+NUM?
05:55<encode>agentbleubleu: why aren't you just running grep against that exact error message?
05:55<encode>grep -r 'Reason for failure 571 Message Refused' *
05:55<agentbleubleu>erm i tried nothing came up
05:55<agentbleubleu>i will try again
05:56<encode>so... how do you know there are emails in that maildir with that return code?
05:56<chesty>i assumed the error message didn't have the From info
05:56<agentbleubleu>i can see them
05:56<agentbleubleu>on ^to
05:56<encode>agentbleubleu: try it with -i in case you don't have the case quite right
05:56<agentbleubleu>ok
05:57<chesty>just grep for 571 for a test
05:58<agentbleubleu>ok
06:00<agentbleubleu>grep -i '571' /home/linkbuildingassociation/homes/support
06:00<agentbleubleu>this has nothing
06:00<agentbleubleu>nor other combos
06:01<chesty>because it's maildir isn't it?
06:01<agentbleubleu>yes
06:01<agentbleubleu>erm

06:02<agentbleubleu>Maildir
06:02<agentbleubleu>how do you mean
06:02<chesty>linkbuidingassociation
06:03<chesty>link building is a way of propelling your website higher in the search engine rankings
06:03<chesty>usualy because they have ads or affiliate stuff on the page
06:04<agentbleubleu>not at all
06:04<agentbleubleu>anyone with a website would like better rankings
06:04<agentbleubleu>in say the real estate market
06:04<chesty>because they are selling stuff
06:05<chesty>they want an unnatural boost in ranks
06:05<agentbleubleu>well many people fo
06:05<agentbleubleu>do
06:05<agentbleubleu>unnatural?
06:05<agentbleubleu> they want to compete thats all
06:05<chesty>unorganic
06:05<agentbleubleu>not if there all at it
06:05<agentbleubleu>which they are
06:06<chesty>anyway
06:06<chesty>maildir has a file for each mail
06:06<agentbleubleu>yes
06:06<chesty>you need to find the right directory, and use a wildcard '*'
06:06<chesty>assuming there isn't millions of files
06:07<agentbleubleu>spacebo
06:07<agentbleubleu>I have seen tha :)
06:07<agentbleubleu>ok
06:09<agentbleubleu>but seo and link building is propagandairised by google to be spam, it's not if the others are all doing it and you havea better service or content. and in truth google is pretty dam poor about pushing the real good content to the top
06:10<agentbleubleu>they have a nice little biz of the back of pushing people down :)
06:18<HoopyCat>SEO is a scam; "success" is generally based on rankings for very specific searches, and in my experience, real people rarely search for those things
06:19<chesty>HoopyCat: google tell you how many times are specific search term is used, they target the higher ranking ones
06:19<chesty>the higher searched ones

06:22<HoopyCat>disclaimer: our SEO consists of sitemaps, using robots.txt as a cattle prod, and having damned good content, which works surprisingly well
06:23<chesty>one site seo is great, link building is cheating, and if google catch you, they'll slap you
06:24<chesty>onsite seo
06:26<HoopyCat>i want google to return, as hit #1, the most relevant (to me) single object possible. if it can't, it oughta just say "eh, ain't nothin' good here, ask your friends"
06:26<encode>hehe. I guess that business model will now have to include building a better search engine that takes over the world
06:26<agentbleubleu>hehe, well. I dont make the rules google does. but I can give you real examples, to show you what the world really looks like.
06:28<chesty>http://www.linkbuildingassociation.com/ has bolded "link building services", but googling for that term, they are nowhere to be found
06:28<chesty>great service
06:30<agentbleubleu>you cannot expect to reach no1 for a competitive term without good links. and despite the logic, sometimes people only link when something is controversial or upsets them, thus if mum and pup joe who make the best pies in london want any biz, they have to compete with people who are controversial and at top, maybe because they are simply bad. The logic is not as sound as one would hope. and is favored for those that will
06:30<agentbleubleu>I have not bothered to rank that site well,
06:30<agentbleubleu>if i wanted it top it would be believe me

11:33<Pryon>The UPS and the printer are on the same circuit. It's a 50% chance the UPS will go to battery on the first print job if it has been idle for a while.
11:33<Pryon>But no, the printer is not plugged into the UPS
11:33<tjfontaine>only 50%? you're doing well
11:33<Bdragon>Yeah, if it were, the ups would go into a fault mode as soon as the printer starts warming up :P

11:52<tjfontaine>2.6.18
11:52<tjfontaine>latest *stable* xen
11:53<panthar>ah ok
11:53<tjfontaine>although I have no problems on the highest number either
11:53<panthar>was 2.6.23.17-linode43 for the uml or whatever was used before?
11:53<tjfontaine>not sure what latest is for uml without looking
11:53<Pryon>that looks right
11:53<panthar>ok that makes sense why I don't see it in my dropdown then :)
11:54<panthar>I've been having weird issues with the newer kernels so I'll stick with the "Latest 2.6" for now.
11:54<tjfontaine>what kind of issue?
11:54<panthar>Strange lockups and exceptions that freeze the machine

12:17<jetlag>interesting

12:18<panthar>But if you want to add a little fluff to PuTTy, it's a nice little version.

12:24<panthar>hm
12:24<panthar>Looks like a nice little launcher
12:24<panthar>quick and simple
12:24<jetlag>Multiple solutions, yay #linode
12:24<dice>panthar: I've been using it for years now. It's fantastic for me.
12:25<dice>alt+\, then select the session, hit enter, and good to go.
12:25<dice>I did end up creating a Putty.lnk file that opens putty maximized that's called by twsc.
12:26<panthar>I might give the new version of that (SSC) a try since they said they left TWSC with some bugs
12:26<panthar>http://spoox.org/wp/wp-content/uploads/2006/12/popup_putty.png
12:27<panthar>looks about the same, but supports a few more apps
12:27<panthar>could be a great generic launcher
12:35<jetlag>Vista's Consolas seems less readable than Courier New, way to go MS.

13:09<jetlag>Maybe it was last Thursday
13:09<jetlag>I dunno. My graphs are pretty flat
13:12<Isvara>I have a suggestion for the root DNS zone:
13:12<Isvara>rog IN CNAME org.
13:12<SelfishMan>Isvara: I think that would make the entire TLD implode
13:13<Isvara>Why?
13:13<SelfishMan>I don't think PIR could handle it. Their zones are pretty messed up
13:13<jetlag> 13:13:32 up 110 days, 1:15, 1 user, load average: 0.00, 0.00, 0.00
13:13<Isvara>Who are PIR?
13:14<daniel>jetlag, how many hits does their site get?
13:14<jetlag>like 10/day
13:14<SelfishMan>Public Interest Registry. They are kinda sorta part of Afilias
13:14<SelfishMan>The people that control the .ORG TLD
13:15<Isvara>I don't think it'd affect them, and it'd save me having to learn to type properly, so let's do it!
13:16<SelfishMan>They have TTLs all over the place in the zone and it makes no sense
13:16<daniel>meh, I want my load down to 0 when there's 50,000 people on my site heh :D
13:16<daniel>Does linode offer uhmm custom packages? In case I want the power of 2 linode2880's without the extra space or bandwidth? (OK, so may be a little bit more bandwidth but mostly the ram?)
13:16<jetlag>actually more like 100/day but you get the idea.
13:16<row>rog cnamed to org would only work when typing org as the domain.....
13:17<SelfishMan>That too
13:17<jetlag>daniel: you can purchase additional resources
13:17<row>as everyone would have to have their records set up to cname everything to rog and you can't cname @ in a zone file either
13:17<row>be insanely messy
13:17<row>and completely retarded
13:17*SelfishMan looks at .ORG TLD zone and declares anything using ns[1-4].maximizemytraffic.com to be evil
13:18<daniel>jetlag, yeah I know, but meh that gets expensive. :P
13:21<jetlag>Hmm... what should I bind nicklist scroll to?
13:21<Isvara>row: Nonsense. It's not CNAMEing @. I'm talking about the /root/ zone, not a TLD zone.
13:21<Isvara>And "´╗┐rog cnamed to org would only work when typing org as the domain" is nonsense too.
13:22<row>er
13:22<SelfishMan>purple...that is all
13:22<row>Isvara: you sure?
13:22<Isvara>Yeah
13:22<row>never tried it I will be honest
13:22<jetlag>When I read "rog" the rest of the sentense reads in a Chinese accent for some reason.

15:03<kambiz>good afternoon .... quick question ... I just setup a new host ... and it appears I cannot connect to arbitrary ports that I might have open on my node .... is it possible to open this up?
15:04<Eman>are you in atlanta?
15:04<Eman>your linode i mean
15:04<kambiz>also ... port 22 appears to be intercepted and sent off to this bizarre "lish" interface ... ... no I set it up on the dallas node.
15:05<bd_>kambiz: you're connecting to the wrong IP
15:05<@caker>kambiz: console != ssh. You want to ssh into your Linode's IP address. Not the host it resides on
15:05<kambiz>I see
15:05<bd_>the atlantaXX.linode.com is your host, not your own linode, and its lish is to help you bail out in case you break your networking or ssh config :)
15:05<kambiz>my mistake may have been going to the node my linode resides on.
15:06<bd_>the correct IP address should be on the 'network' tab on the platform manager thingy

16:00<SelfishMan>So that whole power thing from earlier
16:02<SelfishMan>about 126 is bad but happens frequently. Ever wonder why your incandescent bulbs burn out so often? Ever wonder why those "long life" CFLs die every year? It's because they are rated for 115 volts nominal. If you go to the hardware store and look at regular incandescent bulbs you will see the "long life" or "commercial" bubls are rated at 130V nominal and they will last longer.
16:02<SelfishMan>If a single leg of your power frequently floats above 135V then you will have issues

16:17*SelfishMan suddenly feels old
16:20*bd_ has recently switched from duplicity->s3 to rsyncing to EBS
16:21<jcn>what is ebs?
16:21<bd_>amazon's persistent block device thing for EC2
16:21<jcn>ah. but isn't that limited in size?
16:21<bd_>basically I spin up an EC2 instance, attach the block device, rsync everything across, then kill the EC2 instance
16:21<bd_>jcn: well, you can allocate up to 1TB...
16:21<jcn>oh i didn't know that.
16:22-!-yhager [~yuval@bzq-84-109-109-105.red.bezeqint.net] has joined #linode
16:22<bd_>interestingly, it's actually slightly cheaper than S3 for raw storage (but has lower reliability in theory)
16:22<bd_>(geographically distributed storage vs raid5, is the general idea)
16:23<SelfishMan>bd_: What EC2 image are you using or did you roll your own?
16:23<bd_>I'm actually using the same image I made a while back to merge duplicity incremental backups into a full backup (self-rolled debian+duplicity), I'm just not using the duplicity part anymore
16:25-!-blithe [~blithe@li35-144.members.linode.com] has joined #linode
16:25<bd_>although really any image would work
16:25<bd_>I should probably roll one with a newer rsync so I can use the incremental file scanning feature of rsync 3
16:25<SelfishMan>Yeah, I have my own images but I'm always curious what everyone else is running
16:26<bd_>*nod*
16:26<bd_>the script I'm using now doesn't care as long as rsync and ssh are installed :)

16:30<bd_>dm-crypt might be interesting
16:31<bd_>jcn: I kept forgetting to purge the older backups, and decided I didn't need to be keeping them around anyway
16:31<bd_>also duplicity is slooooow
16:31<bd_>plus I was bored and wanted to play with the APIs a bit :)
16:31<jcn>more to the point.
16:32<jcn>i'm trying to figure out a good/easy backup solution for my linode.
16:32<bd_>hmm
16:32<bd_>well I could post the script I'm using, if it'll help
16:32<tjfontaine>write done by hand everytime you make a change :)
16:33<jcn>bd_ that'd be awesome, just to see your approach
16:33<bcc>brackup is pretty good if you want to use S3...

18:50<Daniel_G>isnt*
18:51<KB1PYW>oh sorry, old habits die hard..
18:52<Palintheus>;)
18:52<KB1PYW>so at a point in time, the max bandwidth is.. what/
18:52<KB1PYW>?
18:52<Bdragon>you really meant bandwidth?
18:52<Bdragon>As fast as you want..
18:52<KB1PYW>...
18:53<Bdragon>The amount of data you can transfer in a month is limited. How fast you can do so is not.
18:53<KB1PYW>hmm, are you sure?
18:54<atourino>bdragon it's limited by the physical abilities of the network interface.. routers etc
18:54<atourino>:D
18:54<Bdragon>yeah yeah...
18:54<Daniel_G>well its a shared connection, so you can cap it out, but when someone else on the node starts to use the connections your allowance will drop as his goes up, if you follow...
18:54<Bdragon>Several megabytes per second is not uncommon..
18:54<KB1PYW>for sure
18:54<KB1PYW>for realy????
18:55<KB1PYW>oh man...
18:55<Bdragon>I've always found it limited by the links between / the OTHER end of the connection...
18:55<KB1PYW>sure..
18:55<Daniel_G>the max ive seen going into my linode is 25MB/s
18:55<Daniel_G>that was an ubuntu torrewnt
18:55<Daniel_G>torrent*
18:55<Bdragon>Yeah, really the disk io is gonna be a limitation long before the network interface is, imo
18:57<bd_>Daniel_G: If each linode on a host maxed out their connections, they'd each get about 3.2 megabytes/s
18:58<bd_>(assuming linode 360)
18:58<Bdragon>Assuming the data you want to transfer is in ram already, you can make the other end drink from the firehose :P

19:26<DephNet[Paul]>panthar, i keep getting ones to enlarge my breasts :( im sure i cant get much bigger that a LLL :/
19:27<samall2>i want asked somthing
19:27<samall2>is this servers anti for DDOS ?
19:27<@caker>samall2: no. You get DDoSed, I cancel your account
19:28<samall2>no have man
19:28<samall2>asked only
19:28<samall2>:)
19:28<DephNet[Paul]>but wont the network still be flooded by the DDoS caker?
19:28*panthar is scared when someone is planning on being DDoS attacked
19:28<@caker>DephNet[Paul]: null route
19:29<DephNet[Paul]>caker, good answer :P
19:29<samall2>your server websystem , dns
19:29*caker ddoss ur gatewayz
19:29<samall2>any servers anti DDos
19:29<bd_>samall2: there are four dns servers, they'd have to DDoS all of them...
19:30*panthar smurfs your teardrop ports
19:30*caker bets he has more machines than you
19:30<@mikegrb>lolz
19:30<Bdragon>lol
19:30<fo0bar>lolz
19:30<bd_>caker: personally, or including those belonging to linode-the-company? >.>
19:31<samall2>i have ISP is veery bad tell me not have good firewall
19:31<@caker>bd_: one and the same!
19:31<bd_>caker: I thought legally they weren't one and the same? :)
19:31<samall2>how to anti my servers from this ?
19:32<panthar>samall2: don't get in ircbot fights on warez channels
19:32<DephNet[Paul]>bd_, they are if caker is self employed
19:32<bd_>samall2: If a DDoS is aimed at you specifically, then linode is not the service for you; you'll need something much more expensive to absorb a DDoS and keep going. If it's aimed at someone else, it'll be taken care of, but you might see a few minutes of downtime until the null routes go in.
19:32<bd_>DephNet[Paul]: WEll, if Linode is a LLC, then the assets would be considered seperate, I think?
19:33<bd_>I know caker's the founder, and probably owns most if not all of the company, but the point of the LLC is to keep business assets /and liabilities/ seperate from the person running it, right?
19:33<panthar>Aye
19:33<@caker>LLC is a pass-through to its owners (in my case, just me)
19:34<DephNet[Paul]>bd_, not sure about how it works in the US, but here in the UK if i form a LLC then the creditors can go after the owner for unpaid debts
19:34<bd_>Ah, so we're going by how many servers are included on your personal tax forms, then? :)
19:34<Daniel_G>DephNet[Paul]: are you talking about an LTD?
19:34<bd_>DephNet[Paul]: I'm not really an expert on the subject... what I'd heard is as long as the owner hasn't been obviously negligent or whatever, then they're insulated.
19:34<bd_>But I'm no accountant :)
19:34<DephNet[Paul]>a Ltd or PLC then no, the buck stops with the company, as that is a seperate legal entity
19:35<samall2>i want anti ddosattack
19:35*Battousai purchases the rights to caker's LCD
19:35<bd_>samall2: You're not going to get it for $20/mo
19:35<panthar>samall2: then you need to go with something expensive
19:35<tierra>the details vary from state to state too when it comes to LLCs and S-corps...
19:36<samall2>is this machine add before roter or add in ISP ?

19:37<DephNet[Paul]>Daniel_G, no, Ltd's are a step up the ladder, the creditors are unable to go after directors, but for a LLC (fairly new to the UK) the creditors are able to go after the directors

19:37<Battousai>are there any regular users on the hosts?
19:38<bd_>samall2: I don't know what you're trying to ask...

19:38<Peng_>ISTM smoking is popular among people in the hosting industry.

19:41<tierra>I admit, I have... Visual C++ has always been top-notch
19:41<Battousai>nice debugger
19:42<tierra>but other than that, yeah, not much else
19:42<booja>ntfs... you're doing it wrong
19:43<tierra>I'm rebooting, I think some process hooked into explorer has some file lock open or something
19:43<tierra>this folder isn't going anywhere
19:45<@caker>Your mouse has moved. Windows must be restarted for changes to take effect.
19:45<bd_>tierra: process explorer ftw :)
19:46<tierra>I usually use that to debug my own app, heh
19:47<tierra>I've got unlocker installed too, but it never popped anything up
19:48<tierra>totoisesvn doesn't always play nice with repos with 40,000+ files, and certainly hates it when I do anything with my working copy from within Cygwin
19:54<bd_>tierra: tortoisesvn may have a different idea about native line endings than cygwin's version
19:54<bd_>or there may be a large enough version difference that the working copy format was upgraded for one of them I guess
19:55<tierra>na, it's because I can never get cygwin to properly set the right file permissions on NTFS drives, and any file a process in Cygwin writes to gets changed to 000, then tortoise starts complaining
19:56<tierra>(and yes, I played with all the ntea options in Cygwin
19:57<bd_>ah :|
19:57<tierra>but you are right, if I used the command line SVN client in cygwin, it would do checkouts with unix line endings vs tortoise with dos newline endings
19:57<tierra>but I never mix the two
20:00<tierra>I use cygwin for anything that involves stuff like find & replace in all files of this type or whatever (some perl/find magic usually comes into play), or when I need to use the command line patch utility (TortoiseMerge kind of sucks at patching when there's conflicts involved)
20:01<tierra>... or if I just want to use a bash script for something

22:57<Adam12>If you are configuring everything by hand, then yes, nginx goes like a bat out of hell and is definitely worth it

23:10<rainkid>could prefer not to restart the linode. is there anyway else i can kill this process run-amok?
23:11<bd_>you could try a lish login, but that requires IO as well (particularly if it's swapping to death it's unlikely to work)
23:11<bd_>there are sysrq commands to kill off most of the processes in the system, but they're likely to leave your system in a state requiring a reboot anyway...
23:11<rainkid>it's been swapping to death the past 10 minutes =P
23:12<bd_>right, you'll probably need to reboot it :|
23:12<rainkid>hm
23:12<rainkid>hope that doesnt corrupt my db =(

23:30<Palintheus>if you configure them to have swap they will
23:30<Peng_>darkk: 540 MB of RAM. You can use some of your disk space for swap if you want to.
23:31<tjfontaine>probably should
23:31<Battousai>tj and his fud

23:32<darkk>is my disk space bare block device or is it just part of filesystem ?

23:33<bd_>LVM volume
23:33<bd_>avongauss: smugmug has swap on /ramdisks/, just to make it happy
23:33<tjfontaine>as far as your node is concerned it's a block device
23:34-!-rainkid [~a254f950@webuser.linode.com] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
23:34<darkk>and if it's LVM - it's even better.
23:34<tjfontaine>you don't have interaction with the host beyond the web configuration, you don't need to worry about such things beyond knowing it's hardware RAID1 + BBU
23:34<bd_>darkk: LVM on the implementation level. You don't see that inside your node.
23:35<avongauss>bd_: I believe it - I've made the mistake of being stubborn and not giving it any before... still hurts
23:35<bd_>It just looks like a straight block dev
23:35<tjfontaine>(you can if you choose to make them PVs)
23:35<bd_>tjfontaine: sure, I guess.
23:35<bd_>snapshotting's about the only reason to do so though
23:35<bd_>and apparently that's under development for the LPM..
23:35<Internat>indeed
23:36<tjfontaine>telling him about lvm only serves to confuse his questions, all he needed to know was that they appear as block devices to his install(s)
23:36<SelfishMan>Is there some trick to getting bind to forward queries to rbldnsd?
23:37<tjfontaine>SelfishMan: reboot 3 time
23:37<tjfontaine>s
23:37<SelfishMan>tjfontaine: tried that, no luck
23:38<darkk>does host server provide any statistics about resource (RAM and CPU) usage or do I have to install some monitoring system myself ?
23:38<Peng_>darkk: You can see CPU, network and I/O in the dashboard.
23:38<tjfontaine>you can see 24hr and 30day reports of what peng_ said
23:38<bd_>darkk: CPU usage yes, it doesn't know what your node's doing with RAM
23:39<darkk>yep, I thought that XEN does not know if RAM pages are commited but wanted to be sure :)
23:39<bd_>basically it hands your node a chunk of RAM at boot, and then doesn't touch it until it's shut down
23:39<bd_>right :)
23:39<bd_>xen has some baloon drivers to hand memory back to the system - but linode doesn't use that feature. You get all your ram at boot, and keep it.
23:39<darkk>anyway, thanks everyone, seems, I've found wonderful hosing provider with great community :)

23:49<Caydel>I have a domain set up on my linode, and it is working fine. I want to use a subdomain, however. I've created an apache virtual host for it... however, do I need to add anything to the DNS record to get it working?
23:49<Peng_>Caydel: Yes
23:49<Peng_>Caydel: Add an A or CNAME record for it
23:50<tierra>you can use a wildcard if you don't have other subdomains under other IP addresses
23:50<Caydel>ok. A CNAME would be the correct choice, since the subdomain is on the same IP, correct?
23:51<tierra>A/AAAA records I think are the standard
23:51<Caydel>tierra: really? how would that be entered?
23:51<Caydel>ok
23:51<Peng_>Personally, I'd use a CNAME, but people usually use A.
23:51<Caydel>what's the advantage of using a CNAME?
23:51<Caydel>and how do I set it up with a wildcard?
23:52<tierra>for wildcard, just add "*" with the IP to your record (I don't know if that works with CNAME)
23:54<Caydel>ok, thanks!
23:54<Caydel>set it up... let's see if it works
23:56<Caydel>does it usually take some time for the DNS to work? I added the * A record... but no cigar yet
23:56<Caydel>still can't connect to the server, apparently
23:56<Palintheus>yes it has to propogate to the name server you are using
23:56<tierra>depends on your DNS server your computer is requesting it from, and what your timeout settings are
