00:07<path->on your linode?
00:07<b4>path-, desktop
00:08<jkwood>I'll have to ask him if he pops in before I go to bed (which is possible, I suppose.)
00:09<mwalling>jkwood: nvm... i realize whats wrong
00:09<path->b4, you have ntpd running?
00:09<b4>path-, yup
00:10-!-dmadole1 [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]

00:10<mwalling>jkwood: i was 404ing on -12.1/testing/, and it obviously isnt a bz2 file then
00:10<Huru>The current time in New Zealand is 6:10PM Date: 01/01/2009
00:11<Huru>you guys only just get new years?
00:11<Huru>Mines almost finished
00:11<b4>sudo: timestamp too far in the future: Jan 1 00:02:57 2009
00:11<jkwood>Hmm... Interesting.
00:11<mwalling>jkwood: better question:
00:12<mwalling>jkwood: why does anorien not have a -12.1/testing/ ?
00:12<b4>my uptime hit 25 days and 12 hours at midnight
00:12<Huru>b4: feel proud?
00:12<b4>it's about 4 minutes behidn though
00:12<b4>Huru, mhm :)
00:13<Huru>tasaro: show him fremonts uptime
00:13<Huru>number 17 isnt it?
00:13<Huru>Has like 2 years uptime
00:13<mwalling>Huru: caker's still up...
00:13<path->does uptime roll over?
00:14<@caker>path-: yes... I've done it
00:14<jkwood>Uh... I have no idea.
00:14<b4>at what point doe sit?
00:14<b4>it takes windows 49 days
00:14<path->that's playing dead
00:15<b4>497 days
00:15<b4>it rolls over after 497 days

00:16<b4>i find it funny how my ICR bots RSS reader is now broken

00:18<Peng_>apt-get install language-pack-en?
00:18<taupehat>I've tried losing weight before
00:18<Peng_>Or -base at least?
00:19<taupehat>I gained weight
00:19<b4>we get billed today?
00:19<taupehat>fortunately, while I can get fatter, I cannot possibly get any less organized
00:19<taupehat>b4: I just got my invoice email
00:19<b4>i didn't
00:19<taupehat>b4: that's because you're kickbanned
00:19<Huru>I dont see "Pay Now" yet
00:20<Bdragon>Heh, this is my big one
00:20<taupehat>eh caker you guys doing anything with twitter?
00:20<@caker>4 days until my birthday. Still enough time to get my presents in the mail!
00:20<Bdragon>Total Due: $1,426.58
00:20<taupehat>I'd love a server reboot notification kind of thingy
00:21<Huru>Bdragon: Woah, how many servers do you own? lol
00:21<@mikegrb>mmm cake
00:21<b4>is tehre a maintenance/status twitetr feed I can follow?
00:21<Bdragon>I switched my main to 24 month :P
00:21<taupehat>exactly what b4 said
00:21*jkwood waits for all his monthly emails to show up
00:21<@caker>b4: no, just the forums rss
00:21<Huru>caker: Is payments automatic?
00:21<Huru>Or manuel
00:21<taupehat>caker: I'd love to see it twitted for a whole bunch of reasons, the biggest being twitterberry
00:21<Huru>I cant remember
00:22<@caker>Huru: auto
00:22<b4>Is tehre a twitetr bot availble that can make tweets from an RSS feed?
00:22<@caker>taupehat: ok, we'll look into that
00:22*jkwood is surrounded by twits
00:22-!-path- [] has quit [Quit: brb]
00:22<Bdragon>Hope it goes through, haven't tried on this card yet. (Switched because the other one was a debit card and as such had daily limits)
00:22<@caker>we haz new payment gateway
00:22<taupehat>that last URL is for caker and b4
00:22<mwalling>caker: that mean new merchant id?
00:22<Huru>payment gateway?
00:22<b4>I can set that up...
00:23<@caker>mwalling: I think so, yes :)
00:23<taupehat>b4: let linode set it up m8
00:23<Huru>payment just went through
00:23-!-phennessy [] has joined #linode
00:23<Bdragon>Is taking longer, used to seeing the two mails beside each other :P
00:23<taupehat>I bet there are a couple of linux daemons that can do it too
00:23<Huru>Here's to another month caker.
00:23<b4>taupehat, I could get a temporary one setup!
00:23<@caker>Bdragon: yeah, it's split up now
00:23<taupehat>b4: just don't use linode as the twitter username because that's the one I want to follow
00:23<@caker>b4: setup isn't a verb, btw
00:24<mwalling>caker: non-swiped transactions shouldnt be allowed on my debit, ecept for merchants i white list
00:24<praetorian>go go visa/mastercard/amex
00:24<b4>taupehat, ok
00:24<@caker>mwalling: is it by name, or some crazy merchant number?
00:24<taupehat>mwalling: NCP transactions are weird
00:24<taupehat>they might push it through anyhow
00:24<mwalling>caker: i tell $BANK name, they look up merchant number
00:24<Bdragon>I've never had trouble using my visa debit anywhere, but am phasing it out now that I have a "real" card...
00:24<@caker>mwalling: ok .. same name, new merchant account
00:24<mwalling>maybe a human will see it
00:25<praetorian>then we're all doomed
00:25<mwalling>i do that for security... i'm paranoid about my debit card
00:25<b4>hwo doe slinode-status sound?
00:25<Bdragon>b4 typing fail
00:25<b4>linode_status ?
00:25<praetorian>sounds fail
00:25<b4>linodestatus ?

00:26<mwalling>caker: ping me if you dont get paid, kthx?
00:26*mwalling doesnt know where i stand in the queue for the processor
00:27-!-dmadole1 [] has joined #linode
00:27<@caker>billing queue is long
00:27<mwalling>s/^/long /
00:27<b4>ntp updates fixed my qwit times
00:27<phennessy>like caker wouldn't hunt you down
00:27<Bdragon>So what's the deal with switching processors anyway? New one take less %s?
00:27<b4>i guarantee Im last
00:28<taupehat>I didn't realize Flickr/Y! supported OpenID
00:28<b4>yahoo won't survive 2008
00:28<mwalling>taupehat: google does too
00:28<taupehat>I know
00:28<mwalling>as does live
00:28<taupehat>b4: I know
00:28<taupehat>mwalling: I won't use live, but google is an option
00:30<@caker>Bdragon: biggest reason is because our old cybercash based system was ancient -- it was unaware of CVV
00:30<praetorian>ah, CVV, the field you must enter, but never is checked
00:30<@caker>and, as always, another chance to renegotiate
00:31<@caker>praetorian: and can't store .. which is curious for recurring transactions
00:31<Bdragon>Well, CVV isn't allowed to be stored, right?
00:31<mwalling>you dont need it though after you get an authorization from the first transaction i thought
00:33<@caker>the entire thing is a giant scam...
00:33<phennessy>i've gone through 3 credit card replacements and they haven't changed the CVV yet
00:33<@caker>they get 1-3% of all transactions for doing shit, IMNSHO
00:34<@caker>that's freaking megabucks across all their merchants. It's disgusting
00:34<phennessy>are you opposed to get paper checks?
00:34<phennessy>is it a pita?
00:34<@caker>phennessy: I've considered it, but yeah -- the PITA factor
00:34<taupehat>caker: You'll have a bit of a fight with the twitterfeed app from what I can see. Might be better off finding a plugin for your forum software
00:34<RockerMONO>CodeBlock: whore
00:35<praetorian>amex/diners charge more cc fee wise
00:35<phennessy>same with discover
00:35<mwalling>at my the resturuant i used to work at, we used to take the CVV because it was cheaper for us then a manual entry... Resturuant Manager used to then (optionally) store it along with the auth code from the first transaction, and use that auth code as the CVV from then on
00:35<CodeBlock>RockerMONO: wtf?
00:35<praetorian>visa/mc is not so bad
00:35*CodeBlock said nothing...
00:35<RockerMONO>CodeBlock: i got bored
00:35<CodeBlock>RockerMONO: do I _know_ you?
00:35<CodeBlock>get away from me.
00:35<phennessy>the state gets some crazy deals where it's next to nothing.. i think cause they are based in DE and get tax kickbacks
00:35*CodeBlock /ignores.
00:36*RockerMONO eats CodeBlock and idles some more
00:36<b4>RockerMONO, you forgot a 0
00:36<RockerMONO>b4: um....
00:36<CodeBlock>what he said...
00:36<jkwood>St. Fu, patron saint of ninjas.
00:37<jkwood>Hmm... that's a good idea.
00:37<Bdragon>So how's that queue lookin? I still owe moneys...
00:37<b4>billign just billed me a bill
00:38<taupehat>billmaker, billmaker, make me a bill
00:38<taupehat>make me a bill to pay for my ills
00:38*taupehat runs
00:38<b4>it's 9:38 PM...
00:38<b4>stupid FAIILclock
00:39<mwalling>b4: it is some where
00:39<mwalling>just not in ohio
00:40<praetorian>5 hours till 9:38
00:40<smh>where do i go to set the ns on linode?
00:41<mwalling>smh: for which way?
00:41<b4>smh, /etc/resolv.conf
00:41<taupehat>goddamn rednecks are jerkin off their guns here
00:41<mwalling>smh: you want linode to host dns for your domains, or do you want someone to look up dns records for you?
00:41<taupehat>I hate it here during NYE and 4th of july
00:41<phennessy>everyone in my neighborhood had fireworks
00:41<taupehat>always regard it as fair luck that nobody gets shot by accident
00:41<smh>i've set the nameservers on my registrar to linode
00:42<smh>and i've added my domains under the dns of linode
00:42<phennessy>but they get the big ones you're not supposed to have at home
00:42<smh>however it's pointing the www and mail etc to a private ip
00:42<taupehat>the "fireworks" here consists of 30-06 rifles, shotties, and miscellanious handguns
00:42*RockerMONO waves to the crazy people and goes :P
00:42<taupehat>it's a fracking blast
00:42<smh>not the eth0 ip
00:42<phennessy>you need to edit the dns zone again
00:42<taupehat>especially the long guns since those can go parabolic and be lethal from miles away
00:42<mwalling>phennessy: go back to path-, you're comfusing me (also, you're pink... path- is set to green in
00:42<phennessy>it asks which ip you want to use
00:42<taupehat>hicks == morons
00:43<Bdragon>Shooting guns into the air is irresponsible.
00:43<phennessy>mwalling: too late.. already registered and made a cert and deleted the old ones
00:43<mwalling>phennessy: damn you
00:43<Bdragon>Always make sure there's a hill behind what cher shootin
00:43<phennessy>it's a new year and a new me
00:44<taupehat>pow pow pow
00:45<Bdragon>no more path-?
00:45<Peng_>We forgot to order the new 2009 model path-.
00:45<phennessy>no mo
00:45<Bdragon>So, re: the billing, how long can I expect it to take before I start worrying, anyway?
00:45<checkers>path- 2.0?
00:46-!-mohney [] has joined #linode
00:46<smh>when i try to put that in it says # Invalid IPv4 or IPv6 address.
00:46<phennessy>i'd prefer path, but it's taken and the guy hasn't left for months
00:46<phennessy>so i've given in
00:46<b4>how do you get sysctl to reload the /etc/sysctl.conf file?
00:46<phennessy>tjfontaine wouldn't delete his registration
00:48<Bdragon>happy mailman day
00:48<Bdragon>mailman-owner@* loves me.
00:48<b4>i just recieved data at about 1000kb/s
00:49-!-mode/#linode [-q *!*] by FloodServ
00:49<Bdragon>Hmm, that seems awfully low.
00:49<b4>on my desktop
00:49<b4>at about clsoe to 1.5mb/s
00:50<mohney>Hoopy you around?
00:51<phennessy>!seen HoopyCat
00:51<linbot>phennessy: HoopyCat was last seen in #linode 7 hours, 32 minutes, and 11 seconds ago: <HoopyCat> bbl
00:51<Bdragon>how l?
00:51<mohney>i was going to say - he hsa been in here every time i came in haha
00:52<Huru>is there any reason why linode caches so much?
00:53<Peng_>Huru: What?
00:53<Bdragon>err, ttls and all you mean?
00:53<Huru>my memory seems to be cached
00:53<Huru>on both my linodes
00:53<Peng_>Huru: Linux does that.
00:53<Peng_>Huru: Because RAM is faster than the hard disk.
00:53<Huru>anyway to stop it?
00:53<Bdragon>Oh, that's it being efficient.
00:53<Peng_>Huru: Why would you want to stop it?
00:53<Bdragon>You do NOT want to stop it.
00:53<bd_>Huru: Why? Free memory is wasted memory.
00:54<bd_>that cached memory will be immediately freed if anything needs it
00:54<Bdragon>caching is good.
00:54<bd_>basically linux has a certain percentage of free memory it tries to maintain
00:54<mendel>Huru: Cached memory is "disk stuff stored in RAM", not "RAM swapped out to disk".
00:54<bd_>and until it hits that level, it won't free any cached ram
00:54<Bdragon>ESPECIALLY on a system that's io limited
00:54<b4>eat it.
00:54<checkers>Bdragon: you could say the same thing about not-swapping though
00:55<mwalling>caker: i've got another resolution for you... when our sessions expire, and we get sent to$FOO, can $FOO also include what linode we're working on so that when we log back in we go back to where we were?
00:55<Bdragon>swapping is good, swap thrashing is bad.
00:55<Bdragon>It's all about keeping what's hot hot and what's not not
00:59<b4>100%[====================================>] 95,545,644 75.78M/s
01:00<Bdragon>Happy New Year from this time zone.
01:00<bd_>In the interest of giving everyone enough rope to hang themselves, I'll point out the existence of /proc/sys/vm/min_free_kbytes here :)
01:00<phennessy>Bdragon: happy new year
01:01<checkers>why is that value not 0?
01:01<b4>bdahppy new year
01:01<praetorian>happy birthday
01:01<Bdragon>Still no confirmation :(
01:01<mwalling>Bdragon: long queue is long
01:02<praetorian>lol queue is long
01:02<mwalling>Bdragon: i havent been done yet either
01:02<praetorian>whats your invoice #?
01:02<Peng_>I'm on annual billing. I won't find out if the merchant change is a problem until like July. :\
01:02<praetorian>well im before you, ah huh
01:02<bd_>checkers: because certain kernel operations need free memory, and can't mess with caches to free some
01:02<bd_>eg, interrupt handlers
01:03<bd_>so the kernel keeps a (small) pool of memory for that purpose
01:03<bd_>note that that's just the minimum - the kernel keeps an additional pool above that to satisfy allocations quickly (the freeing gets pushed to a background thread)
01:03<praetorian>weather: should reach 32 today max
01:03<praetorian>current temp: 34.4
01:04<Bdragon>!weather 57013
01:04<mwalling>weather's broken
01:04<Bdragon>so linbot tells me.
01:04<bd_>checkers: also note that it's theoretically possible to drop below min_free_kbytes - it's just that low-priority allocations are blocked or denied there, and if you're out of swap too it's OOM-killer time
01:05<checkers>sounds fun... I think I'll leave that knob alone :)
01:05<mwalling>ug, manifest parser is teh slow
01:05<b4><gewt> _weather 12345
01:05<b4><Cherri2> gewt: The current temperature in GE Volunteers, Schenectady, New York is 1.9°F (1:05 AM EST on January 01, 2009). Conditions: Clear. Humidity: 74%. Dew Point: -4.0°F. Windchill: 1.4°F. Pressure: 30.03 in 1016.8 hPa (Rising).
01:05<mwalling>b4: yes?
01:05<b4>thats odd
01:05<mwalling>i maintain that station
01:05<bd_>checkers: usually best to leave it alone, yes :)
01:05<checkers>i'm glad I can't feel that cold :)
01:05<bd_>it's designed to be self-regulating
01:05<b4>mwalling, really o.0?
01:06<Bdragon>It's all by design. Turn off overcommit if you wanna be picky about allocation.
01:06<mwalling>i also answer letters to santa
01:06<mwalling>and i've got resume material to boot
01:06<praetorian>reminds me, i should probably fix up my resume
01:06<praetorian>if i can find it
01:06<praetorian>i keep losing the soft copy of it
01:07<praetorian>the worst part? the bulshit you write describing your previous jobs, and make it sound good is lost
01:07<praetorian>that part is so annoying to rewrite
01:08<mwalling>praetorian: i keep mine on my linode ;)
01:08*mwalling also does his in tex, so thats not a good example
01:08<praetorian>see, id probably lose my linode and not be able to find it then
01:08<praetorian>"where did i put that linode this time!"
01:08<praetorian>tbh, i think i have it stored on the family windows pc .. because i think i did it in word last time
01:09<mwalling>ug, slow manifest parser is *SLOW*
01:09<Bdragon>hee hee...
01:09*mwalling has processed over a million files though
01:09<Peng_>"manifest parser"?
01:09<Bdragon>To like, parse manifests and stuff.
01:10<mwalling>Peng_: parses the manifests for the packagesets in slamd64 and load them into a database for searching
01:11<Peng_>mwalling: Oh. Okay. :)
01:11*Bdragon kinda wonders why nobody's thought of just storing package names in EAs...
01:12<Bdragon>Like, so you can see what package a file supposedly belongs to..
01:12<mwalling>Peng_: reinventing for slamd64
01:12<checkers>video game publishers would have nice datbases
01:12<Bdragon>Of course, backing up extended attributes is a PITA...
01:12<phennessy>i thought you just compiled stuff in slackware

02:44<bd_>go to and paste that output there
02:45<bd_>that the only information there?
02:45<bd_>what kernel version/
02:46<bd_>I'm thinking that message was probably an old one (that backtrace is usually mostly harmless and just causes a dropped packet)
02:46<bd_>so, hmm
02:46<zxvf>i probably used up all my memory/resources
02:47<bd_>try one of the newer kernels, I guess. or file a ticket if you need urgent assistance from actual staff :)
02:47<zxvf>with my fancy new web app

02:48<bd_>zxvf: try sysrq w
02:49<bd_>lish -> Ctrl-A d (to exit to the lish console) -> sysrq w -> hit enter to get back to the console
02:49<bd_>might give some hints if the kernel is still alive at some level
02:49<zxvf>lish is just a screen session?
02:50<bd_>yes, there's the lish command line if you drop out of it
02:50<bd_>most of the screen commands are disabled for security reasons of course :)
02:50<zxvf>sysrq w does mostly nothing
02:50<zxvf>absolutely nothing

03:40<Smark>i know praetorian, i've googled the topic, but I'm still a bit confused
03:40<opello>dunno there -- you know the gist? setup TXT record ... probably something like an advanced record editor or something
03:40<Smark>i know where to input them, im having some trouble forming the correct record itself (syntax and whatnot)
03:41<opello> has a wizard
03:41<praetorian>there is a creator on that page i linked.. .yeah :)
03:41<Smark>again, i know
03:42<Smark>it said "Do any other servers send mail from <my domain>?
03:42<booja>gah at work on new years day
03:42<booja>what a bunch of bullshit
03:42<Smark>i have three domains on my linode
03:42<praetorian>whats your domain?
03:42<res0>it's asking the inverse of that smark
03:42<opello> IN TXT "v=spf1 a mx -all"
03:42<opello>straight from wikipedia :)
03:43<res0>Smark: you'll set up an SPF record for each domain individually
03:43<Smark>ok, then whats all this other stuff that i'm seeing about mx: and ptr:
03:43<res0>what that's asking is if any other machines are going to send mail from that domain, which is probably no
03:43<praetorian>(other then your mail server)
03:44<opello>"a mx" is pretty safe, because then your mx can send mail, as can the a record
03:45<Smark>as far as the linode dns manager, what should i put for the name of the TXT record?
03:45<Smark>i assume its not for descriptive purposes
03:45<opello>your domain name, if it's not the content itself
03:47<chesty>how does one test after adding the spf record?
03:48<chesty>and, how would I add gmail to the allowed to send list?
03:48*chesty hasn't read a thing about spf, so I might just keep on ignoring it for now ;)
03:48<praetorian>lasy arse
03:49<Nevyn>do you use google for your mail host?
03:49<exor|zzz>chesty: google apps for domains?
03:49<exor|zzz>add a after the a
03:50<chesty>i don't use gmail much, but I have set it up so I can send mail from gmail as my other non google apps domain
03:50<Nevyn>then just add the include to the TXT records

04:15<TwistOfFate>so what's an ssh-agent

04:16-!-opello [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
04:17<TwistOfFate>not sure i understand
04:17<TwistOfFate>i ssh in, do what i need to do.
04:17<TwistOfFate>i don't ssh in multiple times
04:18<chesty>say you log in locally, ssh-agent asks for your ssh passphrase, you give it. then you can ssh to your linode without being prompted for a passphrase
04:18<chesty>you can then log off ssh, and re log on as many times as you want, without using your passphase
04:18<chesty>makes more sense if you're managing 100's of boxes
04:18<checkers>you can protect ssh keys with a password. an ssh-agent stores that password in memory so you don't need to type it in every time you use the key
04:19<TwistOfFate>i see
04:19<TwistOfFate>sounds risky tto me
04:19<chesty>then don't use it
04:20<TwistOfFate>i won't.
04:20<TwistOfFate>ok, well i'll setup these keys now
04:20<chesty>then you have to disable password login in sshd
04:21<TwistOfFate>yeah. that's just a line in sshd_config right?
04:24<TwistOfFate>i'm looking at using fail2ban and denyhosts too
04:24<TwistOfFate>and possibly change the port sshd listens on.
04:25<chesty>personally, i chose to limit ssh logins to 2 per minute, it stops all but the sneakiest brute force attempts
04:26<TwistOfFate>i like that idea.
04:26<chesty>the newest brute force attempts only try to log in once every few minutes
04:27<TwistOfFate>should you use fail2ban and denyhosts together, or just one?
04:27<chesty>not sure what denyhosts does
04:27<chesty>fail2ban is popular
04:28<encode>TwistOfFate: no point using both
04:28<TwistOfFate>guess i'll stick with fail2ban then
04:28<TwistOfFate>i haven't installed denyhosts yet
04:29<TwistOfFate>how do i find out if fail2ban is actually banning stuff?
04:29<chopp>I use denyhosts, and it works great. Never tried fail2ban.
04:29<TwistOfFate>does it log all that kind of shit to /var/log/fail2ban.log?
04:30<chesty>one way is to use bad passwords a few times, then get blocked. you can then log in through lish and unblock yourself
04:37<exor|zzz>best way to test non-letheal enforcement systems

05:44<Peng_>checkers: 2048 is standard on Ubuntu.
05:45<Peng_>(s/standard/the default/)
05:45<checkers>I meant the version as distributed by openbsd
05:45<Peng_>Oh, really. Huh. I wonder why Ubuntu bumped it up?
05:45<checkers>actually openbsd might have increased it too, thinking about it
05:46<guinea-pig>always thinking of the future!
05:46<checkers>in that case, I meant 'standard' as in 'minimum recommended by some security council'
05:48<Peng_>Yeah, the default in the official releases is 2048.
05:48<Peng_>(ref: )
05:53<Peng_>The default was increased from 1024 to 2048 in 4.2 (
05:56<Peng_>Which was released in, what, about September 2005?

08:13<TwistOfFate>can postfix support sieve?
08:13<chesty>ummm, i think sieve is more for imap/pop3
08:14<TwistOfFate>explain chesty
08:17<chesty>it's a way to sort your mail, right? it's been a long time since i played with sieve. perhaps does need to be configured for it. can't recall :(
08:18<chesty>...perhaps postfix...^^^
08:19<TwistOfFate>makes more sense to me that the mta do it
08:19<TwistOfFate>rather than the imap server
08:19<TwistOfFate>i mean, you're right. it is supposed to be for the imap server.
08:19<praetorian>whats sieve
08:19<TwistOfFate>but that's weird to me. i mean, when does that filtering occur
08:19<TwistOfFate>when you connect to the imap server and it gives you your mail?
08:19<chesty>praetorian: your brains
08:20<praetorian>igoogled it anyway
08:20<TwistOfFate>apparently my imap server of choice (dovecot) has sieve support.
08:21<praetorian>sounds a bit like procmail
08:22<chesty>yes, but not as powerful
08:22<praetorian>oh, i can see why people like it then
08:22<chesty>it's not for people who like lots of lists

09:18<TimothyA>and is there a google cache of the logs in this channel?
09:18<A-KO>shubuntu_: none, if you want some sort of control panel you'll need to download and install one yourself. (and probably pay for the better ones)
09:18<shubuntu_>hi mikegrb
09:18<N0valyfe>your deniying the fact that you used that nickname, considering you opered there, with that nickname?
09:18<verheesj>i was oper?
09:19<shubuntu_>well i don't wanna build anything
09:19<shubuntu_>there's ISPConfig and Webmin
09:19<verheesj>ur fucking funny
09:19<shubuntu_>both look ok
09:19<atula>hmmm so the 12 months discount is only money? 10%... not hardware bonus ?
09:19<verheesj>so funny its unreal
09:19<shubuntu_>but you have to build them
09:19<TimothyA>webmin, stay the f*ck away from webmin
09:19<shubuntu_>i want something that can use the deb packaging and automatic resolving
09:19<praetorian>atula: with the 10% you save, you could get more hardware ... :-)
09:19<A-KO>shubuntu_: Linode's a virtual server provider, part of the reason people choose linode over a web hosting service is for the specific ability to build things as they need them.
09:19<TimothyA>oh wait, that's a different package than I was thinking about

11:00<agentbleubleu>im having trouble understanding symlinks. i have created the symlink but when I call it it does not seem to work, if i pico the file it is empty. but the actual file where the symlink point has content.
11:00<@caker>mmmm, fresh inbox
11:00<mwalling>agentbleubleu: ls -l
11:01<mwalling>oh... you did that...
11:01<agentbleubleu>i used that in the pastbin
11:01<mwalling>what color is the symlink?
11:01<HoopyCat>mwalling: gazelle
11:01<mwalling>agentbleubleu: red == bad
11:01<agentbleubleu>black background
11:01<agentbleubleu>red tex
11:02<mwalling>agentbleubleu: your symlink is pointing to a non-existant file
11:02<BP{k}>a simple test would have been: ls -l /scrapy/trunk/scrapy/bin/
11:02<mwalling>BP{k}: colors are easier to understand :)
11:02<agentbleubleu>ah ls: cannot access /scrapy/trunk/scrapy/bin/ No such file or directory
11:02<BP{k}>mwalling: not before coffee ;)
11:02<agentbleubleu>thanks guys
11:02<BP{k}>mwalling: oh and not before a decent fry up by kethry ;)
11:03<mwalling>BP{k}: stfu.

11:04<HoopyCat>we'd have probably had a good holiday morning breakfast today, but one of our cats is sick (5:30am: "Have you seen Punk?" "mmrmfgm, she was on her chair sleeping when I got home at 2am, mrggh"). ah, holidays.
11:13<agentbleubleu>so if i am logged in as a user, and want to create a symlink from the current dir to anther file. This is what i am doing : ln -s /scrapy/trunk/scrapy/bin/
11:13<agentbleubleu>but this gives the link as in red
11:13<agentbleubleu>what am i doing wrong
11:13<mwalling>11:02 < agentbleubleu> ah ls: cannot access /scrapy/trunk/scrapy/bin/ No such file or directory
11:14<mwalling>your symlink is fine
11:14<agentbleubleu>the file is there
11:14<agentbleubleu>from the root
11:15<HoopyCat>agentbleubleu: how do you know it's there?
11:15<agentbleubleu>pico /scrapy/trunk/scrapy/bin/
11:15<agentbleubleu>opens file
11:15<agentbleubleu>from the base dir
11:15<agentbleubleu>like here

11:16<agentbleubleu>somethings wrong its not there now
11:16<HoopyCat>so you're typing "pico /scrapy/trunk/scrapy/bin/" and it's giving you the contents of that file, but you're typing "ls /scrapy/trunk/scrapy/bin/" and it's giving you no-such-file-or-directory?
11:16<agentbleubleu>no just checked again its empty now
11:17<agentbleubleu>i look into it again
11:17<HoopyCat>oh good, that means the laws of physics still apply and the world makes sense
11:17<TimothyA>"please remove your personal jewelry including school rings and wedding bands; this is supposed to be a gritty neighborhood full of crackhouses and you're poor hocked all of your jewelry --for drugs."
11:18<HoopyCat>agentbleubleu: i suspect there's either a typo or a missing part of the path in there somewhere
11:18<agentbleubleu>pico scrapy/trunk/scrapy/bin/
11:18<agentbleubleu>this works
11:18<agentbleubleu>before i did this pico /scrapy/trunk/scrapy/bin/
11:18-!-ondrej [] has joined #linode
11:18<HoopyCat>"pico scrapy/trunk/scrapy/bin/" is completely and totally different than "pico /scrapy/trunk/scrapy/bin/"
11:19<HoopyCat>agentbleubleu: type "pwd" ... that'll tell you where you are
11:19<agentbleubleu>what does this mean
11:19<HoopyCat>Print Working Directory
11:20<agentbleubleu>so in the instructions it mentioned make the symlink with "pwd"
11:20<FFEMTcJ>did everyone beat their significant other last night, because based on the calls I ran, that's what your supposed to do on new years
11:20<agentbleubleu>before the link
11:20<HoopyCat>ok, then i bet "pico /home/bleu/scrapy/trunk/scrapy/bin/" will work, as will creating a symlink with ln -s /home/bleu/scrapy/trunk/scrapy/bin/ :-)
11:20<agentbleubleu>i see
11:20<agentbleubleu>how do you remove a symlink
11:21<@caker>how do you think?
11:21<SelfishMan>format c: /autotest ?
11:21<agentbleubleu>rm /home/bleu/scrapy/trunk/scrapy/bin/
11:21<@caker>agentbleubleu: good job
11:22<agentbleubleu>that would work?
11:22<@caker>maybe try it and see?
11:22<HoopyCat>agentbleubleu: if the pathname starts with a /, it's an absolute location -- it's like saying "123 Mulberry Street, Pound Ridge NY, USA"... there's exactly one of those. if it doesn't, it's a relative pathname, which means it is relative to where you are. if you're at 122 Mulberry Street and you say "it's the house across the street", it's going to be the same... if, however, you're in Wuthering Heights, NJ, it's not going to be the sam
11:22<HoopyCat>agentbleubleu: i'd probably try rm on the symlink instead of on the target.
11:23<agentbleubleu>caker - 1 point !
11:23<mwalling>is that one point for caker, or one point taken away?

13:06<HoopyCat>my wife's shop closed 3 hours early on christmas eve, which was relatively unexpected but nice. (unfortunately, that was 3 hours without pay, but she worked overtime on saturday which made up for both the early dismissal on christmas eve and not working on christmas day)

13:52<sillygoose>Do I need two IPs to run a two virtual domains, one SSL and the other normal?
13:52<sillygoose>*to run two virtual domains...
13:53<phennessy>you only need multiple ips to host multiple ssl sites
13:53<phennessy>to do ip based virtual hosting
13:53<sillygoose>Gotchya, thanks. :)
13:53<phennessy>you can do name based hosting with one ip
13:57<sillygoose>One more for ya... I am switching servers to linode; can I bring my old SSL-certificate over to the new server? (will have the same domain/url)
13:58<phennessy>should be able to
13:58<sillygoose>I wasn't sure because of the whole "server-generated signing/generating" thingamabob
13:59<phennessy>you need the private key and the public one
13:59<sillygoose>Okay, so the server-generated signing request is NOT specific to the server, right?
13:59<sillygoose>(seems strange)
13:59<phennessy>the file is the private key which you generated
14:00<phennessy>you then used that to make a csr to send to the CA
14:00<phennessy>then they gave you back the .crt file
14:00<phennessy>you really need the .key and .csr file
14:00<phennessy>you need the .key and .crt file
14:00<sillygoose>LOL, thanks.
14:00<phennessy>you can't use the csr again, but you can generate another one based on your .key file
14:01<sillygoose>This is nerve-racking... don't like switching servers around
14:01<mgoetze>oh, it's fun enough if you have time to do it properly
14:02<phennessy>where are you moving from?
14:02<mgoetze>one time, i got a message like "we are going out of business on the day after tomorrow, please make sure to backup all your data, kthxbye" ... now THAT was not fun
14:02<phennessy>if it's another xen vps, you might be able to copy your entire disk image over
14:03<sillygoose>phennessy: moving my FreeBSD box from ThePlanet to here.
14:03<sillygoose>Switching from FBSD to Debian... waiting anxiously for Lenny.
14:03<mgoetze>here as in a linode hosted at theplanet? ;)
14:03<mgoetze>don't bother waiting, just install lenny now
14:03<sillygoose>LOL, maybe
14:03<phennessy>that is a bit of a change
14:04<sillygoose>The idea is to keep the maintenance to an absolute minimum, since I wear all of the hats. And it sucks.

14:51<phennessy>usage of what?
14:51<DephNet[Paul]>RAM, network, HDD etc
14:52<phennessy>munin is useful
14:52<phennessy>there is also some scripts on the forum which will display bw usage and whatnot
14:52<phennessy>there are
14:53<DephNet[Paul]>whats MRTG like?
14:53-!-lakin [] has joined #linode
14:53<phennessy>munin is the new mrtg
14:53<phennessy>mrtg is the old
14:54<DephNet[Paul]>is munin lightweight?
14:54<phennessy>the guy who wrote that, then wrote rrdtool.. but a lot of people don't use rrdtool directly because it has a lot of options and whatnot
14:54<DephNet[Paul]>it looks like i only have 30 or 40MiB left
14:54<phennessy>but munin takes care of that for you
14:54<phennessy>of ram or disk space?

14:55<phennessy>there is a munin-node part i think
14:55<phennessy>and you could run the server part somewhere else (like at home)
14:55<DephNet[Paul]>does munin show HDD usage too?
14:55<phennessy>it's all a bunch of graphs
14:56<phennessy>there are some demos on there site
14:56<phennessy>i can't think today
14:56<DephNet[Paul]>thats an idea, i have a dev environment in the office so i could do that if possable
14:56<DephNet[Paul]>, thats the URL isnt it?
14:57<phennessy>the server collects the data from the clients and adds it to rrd files, which the cgi displays as graphs
14:57<phennessy>yea, sounds right
15:01<mgoetze>"munin is the new mrtg" - thought it's just a frontend?
15:02<phennessy>well rrdtool is the new mrtg really
15:02<phennessy>but i think people commonly use other tools that interface with rrdtool because of it's complexity
15:02<phennessy>such as munin
15:02<DephNet[Paul]>phennessy, i guess, if i do all the work on my local network i *could* use one install of the server with several munin-nodes?
15:03<mgoetze>oh wait, mrtg is just a frontend too...
15:03<mgoetze>ah, no, it isn't
15:03<mgoetze>anyway mrtg and rrdtool are written by the same person :)
15:04<phennessy>rrdtool is the new, mrtg is the old

16:54<straterra>The Vista firewall blocks ICMPv6 by default..but not totally
16:54<HoopyCat>straterra: bahahaha
16:54<straterra>It would see the first advertisement and configure itself
16:54<straterra> would block any further ones
16:54<straterra>So..after the initial advertisement would expire, ipv6 routing would break

20:24<Toba>interesting definition of 'working'
20:25<Toba>unless you know that all of those IPs did something bad and that every IP that did something bad was blocked, it's not perfect
20:25<Toba>I should write some 'firewall' software that just blocks IPs at random, people would think it was working.

20:41<SelfishMan>The windows exploit bots are handed a full /23 or /22 to scan and they pass along their scan progress and a new network to the systems they infect. SSH attacks aren't really from botnets but are still automated. Typically they scan the local /24 or possibly /23 but don't venture out that much without additional instructions to do so.
20:41<Bdragon>caker: What about making account/makePayment.cfm a two step page and ask there?
20:43<Toba>who ehre actually understands this software?
20:43<Toba>what is the chance that an IP will get blocked for connecting once and then disconnecting?
20:44<Toba>will that even get reported to the "central" repository of attacks?

20:46<checkers>SelfishMan: there's plenty of 'blind' scanning too
20:46<checkers>any IP in a TP datacenter will get scanned quite often
20:46<Bdragon>Well, it might help if you set a descriptive RDNS that points people to a web site describing your study ;)
20:47<Toba>good idea Bdragon
20:47<Bdragon>meh, any host on the ipv4 internet will get scanned quite often.

21:02<Seannachie>that isn't good, is it
21:02<charlie>Seannachie, I get a 60ms ping to my linode
21:03<phennessy>i suppose it depends on where you are coming from
21:03<Seannachie>My Linode is in Newark
21:03<Seannachie>I'm in Seattle
21:03<@caker>100ms cross country can be expected
21:03<Nevyn>I get 25ms to mine...Kansas to Dallas
21:03<@caker>electrons can only travel so fast
21:03<@caker>(and LIGHT BEAMS, too)
21:03<@tasaro>you may want to submit a ticket to be moved to Fremont when the new hosts are racked
21:04<@tasaro>if 100ms bothers you
21:04<phennessy>new hosts in fremont? Peng will be happy!
21:04<mgoetze>100ms bothers me, please open up a location in europe :P
21:04<@tasaro>mgoetze: move to the US
21:04<mgoetze>tasaro: is that a job offer?
21:05<@tasaro>did you submit a resume?
21:05<Seannachie>Hm, I wonder if I would get better speeds at The Planet?
21:05<@caker>mgoetze: depends -- are you hot?

21:14<phennessy>maybe they filter that too :)

21:14<Seannachie>this is confusing
21:15<mgoetze>yay for consisten naming
21:15<Seannachie>Thank you caker
21:15<checkers>can you imagine a government convincing every ISP in the country to run every port 80 connection through a bank of cisco webfilters? :p
21:16<@caker>mgoetze: it's consistent ... avail-<state> ... there are also aliases for the datacenters' initials
21:16<Bdragon>Well, it depends on whether the ISPs are state run in the country in question :P
21:16<mgoetze>checkers: uhm, writing a law and then sending the police to shutdown anyone not in compliance would be pretty convincing to me

21:17<Seannachie>When I move my Linode, can I run a command to replace every instance of oldip with newip in every file on the system
21:18<phennessy>checkers: ever hear of room 641A
21:18<@caker>Seannachie: I dunno, can you?
21:18*caker is one pedantic sonofabitch

21:19<Seannachie>When I move my Linode, what is the command to replace every instance of oldip with newip in every file on the system
21:19<@caker>much better.
21:19<bd_>Seannachie: that sounds incredibly dangerous
21:19<Bdragon>I'd say you should find them and then change them by hand
21:19<@caker>Seannachie: I agree with bd. It's possible, but unwise, imo
21:19<Bdragon>some variation on grep -R
21:19<Seannachie>why unwise?
21:20<bd_>Seannachie: imagine if the IP is in your database
21:20<bd_>and the new one is a different length
21:20<bd_>now your database is destroyed
21:20<bd_>even if it's the same length, your indexes are now broken.
21:20<Bdragon>Well, what if the bytes occur in an image or other file that isn't meant to be string-twiddled?
21:20<bd_>and that's just an easy example
21:21<Bdragon>So yeah, just grep for the ip first and then look at the files that had a match.

21:35<fukawi2>well I haI have my own linode now :) can anyone help me with getting Arch installed with a custom partitioning scheme? I've booted Finnix and setup the partition table on /dev/xvdb but now how do I get arch in there?
21:37-!-Huru|Sleeping [] has joined #linode
21:37<@caker>fukawi2: I don't suggest partitioning -- it prevents you from using our resize tools. Instead, create individual disk images
21:38-!-Huru|Sleeping is now known as Huru
21:39<mgoetze>caker: is there any advantage over just creating one big LVM PV?
21:39<bd_>mgoetze: You don't need to mess with pv-grub and initrds to get it to boot :)
21:39<@caker>so deploy Arch. Then create more empty ext3 disk images. Attach them all to a finnix profile. Boot finnix. Mount them somewhere, and then cp -a stuff onto its proper location, removing the stuff and updating fstab along the way
21:40<mgoetze>ok, let's say one 100mb /boot partition and a huge lvm pv :)
21:40<fukawi2>caker: fair enough - still have the same issue though, how do I get arch onto the disk? install it on xvda, then boot finnix to dd / cp everything to appropriate xvd*
21:40<bd_>mgoetze: it's easier :)
21:40<@caker>mgoetze: our system will refuse to resize down a non-ext2/3 image
21:40<@caker>no dd involved. You're copying files
21:40<bd_>fukawi2: set up all your disk images, boot finnix, mount root on /mnt, mkdir /mnt/usr, mount /mnt/usr, etc etc etc
21:40<bd_>then install to /mnt
21:40<fukawi2>caker: thanks caker, that was what I was hoping to avoid, but I guess I'll have to :)
21:41<@caker>bd_: that method he's mounting over the places he wants to copy stuff
21:41<mgoetze>caker: hm, but why would i want to downsize, unless i'm downgrading to lesser package, which is not likely with my 360?
21:41<bd_>caker: Oh, he's converting an existing system?
21:41<@caker>mgoetze: you asked.
21:41<fukawi2>bd_: but I can't boot the arch install ISO can I? only the Linode provided images to make a default machine?
21:41-!-J-Node [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
21:41-!-[1]J-Node is now known as J-Node
21:42<@caker>fukawi2: you cannot boot the install cd, no
21:42<bd_>fukawi2: right, you'll need to either install on your own system and upload or rsync an image, or find a tarball you can extract, or find a script that'll install it to some directory (like debian's debootstrap)
21:42<mgoetze>caker: yeah i'm just saying you didn't answer my question the way i meant it, unless you intended the answer to mean "no" ;)
21:42<bd_>the wizard supports arch
21:42<bd_>so you could do it like that
21:42-!-metaperl [] has joined #linode
21:42<bd_>use the distro wizard to create your root filesystem
21:42<fukawi2>I'll have a hack around with cp'ing everything... thanks for your help guys :)
21:42<bd_>then cp -a to the final mount points
21:43<@caker>"is there any advantage to using our method vs using an <boot image> and a giant LVM pv" -- yes, you can't use our resize tools to resize smaller
21:43<@caker>... when the image isn't ext2/3
21:43<bd_>there are advantages to the LVM method too
21:43<bd_>eg, snapshot support
21:43<phennessy>lvm in lvm in lvm
21:44<phennessy>well maybe not
21:44<mgoetze>caker: yes, that's not an advantage as far as i'm concerned
21:44<bd_>If it were possible to attach disk images at runtime you could also do a live resize that way (attach a new PV, then expand)
21:44<phennessy>using the tools in the manager make things so much easier
21:44<fukawi2>bd_: where do I find this "wizard" you speak of? :)
21:44<bd_>but unfortunately linode doesn't support that
21:44<bd_>fukawi2: deploy a linux distribution from the panel
21:45<phennessy>should be a button on the right column i think
21:45<fukawi2>db_: oh, yeah I found that... I thought you meant there was something to customize that further
21:45<phennessy>could install that and upgrade, right?
21:45<phennessy>i don't know anything about arch
21:45<bd_>install that and mess with the partitions from there even
21:46<fukawi2>yeah, that's what I'm going to have to do from what caker is saying... install arch, create additional disk images, book finnix, rearrange everything from finnix, then boot arch again
21:47<fukawi2>does Finnix support LVM?
21:47<linbot>phennessy: "customhowto" could be
21:47<phennessy>fukawi2: could try the custom thing too ^
21:47<@caker>fukawi2: it supports everything
21:47-!-TwistOfFate [] has quit []
21:47<@caker>fukawi2: what problem are you trying to solve with all these mountpoints?
21:48<phennessy>that could so be a urmom joke
21:48<bd_>caker: Finnix supports btrfs? :D
21:48<fukawi2>security and managability mainly... I like having /usr mounted RO, and /var separate so logs can't DOS, same for /home but so users can't
21:48<bd_>'everything' <-
21:49<fukawi2>phennessy - I like what you just sent me... I'm going to have a look at that. I have VirtualBox here that I could install "my" arch in to, then dd-ssh it :)
21:49<phennessy>it's best to use the linode kernels, so once it's copied over, you can delete them
21:50<phennessy>the linode kernels stay outside your fs
21:50*bd_ attempts to set up a linode with a btrfs root
21:50<fukawi2>so /boot inside the VM is redundant?
21:50<phennessy>no point really
21:50<fukawi2>interesting :)
21:50<bd_>fukawi2: you only need /boot if you're going to use a custom kernel
21:51<phennessy>you could do the pvgrub stuff, but that looks for (hd0)/boot
21:51<bd_>which is only minimally supported for tinkerers :)
21:51<phennessy>and if you had a special fs for that, you'd have /boot/boot/grub.lst or sompn
21:51<bd_>caker: is source and .config for the finnix kernel available somewhere?
21:51-!-TwistOfFate [] has joined #linode
21:51<@caker>bd_: no

22:53<SelfishMan>! people still use Mandriva?!?!
22:53<Bdragon>Last time I used it, it was called Mandrake.
22:54<Irl>I have a question.
22:54<Irl>With my vps, is it possible to use 2 payment methods?
22:54<SelfishMan>Not likely
22:55<@irgeek>mgoetze: I read it wrong. :) find ./ -type f -not -iname "*.gz"
22:55<Irl>So I have to use one payment method?
22:55*SelfishMan defers to irgeek
22:55<mgoetze>anyway, now i have to do: find -type f -exec zgrep -Hi geode '{}' ';'
22:56<@irgeek>Irl: If you want to do it every month, that's not great for us, but for a once off thing we can probably run it manually.
22:56<@irgeek>Why do you want to use two?
22:56<phennessy>and there is a discount if you go to an annual plan
22:57<SelfishMan>top - 22:56:44 up 11:36, 2 users, load average: 9999999999.99, 0.81, 0.39
22:57<Irl>Well, I am paying for the main linode with my card, but I am running a large bot on another network and we need to upgrade our vps. I cannot afford for the upgrade price, so I want to start accepting donations.
22:57<charlie>SelfishMan, load fail!
22:57<Irl>So the donations would go through paypal, and I would pay with my card still.
22:58<Irl>I was wondering if that was possible.
22:58<res0>why not load your paypal with your card and just pay with paypal?
22:58<guinea-pig>ah, but linode doesn't take paypal (iirc)
22:58<SelfishMan>Irl: just use your paypal card
22:58<res0>oh right
22:58<SelfishMan>But they will take a paypal debit card
22:58<Irl>guinea-pig, i forgot
22:58<bd_>btrfs-equipped finnix running :3
22:58<Irl>but something like that
22:58<@irgeek>res0: We don't accept Paypal...
22:58<Irl>irgeek, I knew that :p
22:58<Irl>But something like paypal.
22:58<Irl>The main thing though, is that possible?
22:59<Irl>Two payment methods going towards one vps?
22:59<SelfishMan>Irl: Does that provider offer a debit card?
22:59<Irl>Right now I'm using a visa gift card.
22:59<res0>Irl: from an ecommerce stance, that situation totally sucks for the merchant
22:59<Irl>But we need another method to accept donations.
22:59<@irgeek>Every month would be a PITA for us I think.
22:59<res0>Irl: because it forces them to process the transaction manually
22:59<Irl>Then what do you suggest we do?
23:00<res0>Irl: i'd just use donation via paypal and just pull the money back to your account in the amount of the difference
23:00<res0>then pay the whole amount each month
23:00<Irl>With a gift card?
23:00<Irl>Thats not possible
23:00<res0>how are you paying now?
23:00<Irl>Your idea could work.
23:00<Irl>I'm using a visa gift card.
23:00<@irgeek>Irl: What about a Paypal debit card?
23:01<Irl>You guys accept those?
23:01<res0>if they're on the visa or MC network
23:01<@irgeek>They have a (Visa|Mastercard) logo, so yes.
23:01<Irl>Right, because you guys accept visa.
23:01<SelfishMan>Paypal debit cards are just a regular mastercard
23:01<Irl>So, one more question.
23:01<guinea-pig>no they aren't. i used to have a paypal mastercard, but that was a real credit card, not attached to the paypal account
23:01<Irl>If I do decide to get a paypal debit card, would I be able to add money to that myself?
23:01<Bdragon>There's two kinds
23:02-!-fukawi2 [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
23:02<Bdragon>There's the GE Money Bank card, which is a real credit card (MasterCard)
23:02<mwalling>ge doesnt do comsumer credit products
23:02<Bdragon>and there's the debit card, which is a debit card I think.
23:02<guinea-pig>but then one company got sold to another, and then WaMu closed my account because they're having trouble
23:02<res0>Irl: paypal accounts let you draw from a credit card if you don't have the funds in your paypal account
23:02<teknicaL>Irl, it comes out of your paypal available balance and uses your checking account as a backup funding source.
23:03<Irl>I could possibly do that.
23:03<Irl>Thank you guys for the help.

23:04<res0>GE Consumer Finance doesn't exist anymore?
23:04<Bdragon>mwalling: FWIW, the interface for it does seem kinda crusty and old.
23:04<mwalling>res0: 2 ge employees think they shed that business
23:05<mwalling>they still have ComFin though
23:05<res0>mwalling: i have a retail credit card issued by GEMB and my bill payment still goes there
23:05<Bdragon>My Paypal Plus card is GE Money Bank, or at least something that goes by that name...
23:06<phennessy>BoA probably bought them
23:06<phennessy>that or Citi
23:06<Bdragon>Heh, I can totally imagine GE just plain forgetting about a division or two though :P
23:06<res0> still has "GE Money is a trademark of General Electric Company. Copyright © 2008 General Electric Company."
23:06<mwalling>they stopped trying to sell the apliance business
23:07<mwalling>"GE Money, the consumer finance arm of U.S.- based based industrial stalwart General Electric, is pulling back from doing business in its homeland, where it sees scant growth opportunities, to further expand its global footprint. "
23:07<Bdragon>GE without an appliance division is uh....
23:07<phennessy>their appliances are good advertising
23:07<mwalling>the first google result for "ge consumer finance sale"
23:07<mwalling>phennessy: right, but thier small appliacne business (aka walmart shit) is a bad thing
23:07<Bdragon>Oh, so that just means they don't sell to themselves anymore?

23:32<phennessy>or make new, cat and move
23:33<SelfishMan>I can't believe there isn't a prepend command for exactly this
23:33<@irgeek>SelfishMan: If you're trying to avoid copying the file, your problem is that the first byte of the first sector is already full.
23:33<StevenK>SelfishMan: cat ?
23:33<SelfishMan>StevenK: Too slow
23:33<@irgeek>You need to shuffle everything to put that one char in.
23:34<SelfishMan>irgeek: I know but it seems to me there should be an easy way to slap an extra block at the beginning of the file
23:34<bd_>SelfishMan: unfortunately most fs drivers don't support that sort of operation
23:34<phennessy>does the zone really need to be in order?
23:34<SelfishMan>I was really just hoping there was some way I wasn't aware of
23:34<bd_>for one, it makes it hard to avoid fragmentation
23:35<SelfishMan>phennessy: It would be nice to be able to do that with all the TLD zones I have so I don't need to specify it elsewhere
23:36<SelfishMan>But I'll just keep doing it as I have been
23:36<@irgeek>Do most filesystems even support a partially filled sector in the middle of a file?
23:36<phennessy>that's a pretty large file
23:36<bd_>irgeek: most don't, no
23:36<SelfishMan>For the record, Linode nameservers are referenced 10252 times in the .com TLD
23:36<bd_>if you're adding a sector at a time it's probably possible, metadata-wise
23:36<checkers>SelfishMan: are you just trying to get someone tl ask you how you got that?

23:38<checkers>yes, I know of at least one polace that serves diffs going back a few years
23:39<SelfishMan>.COM and .NET are reasonable but .US and .NAME are really poorly formatted. BIND will frequently choke on them even though they are technically BIND zone files
23:39<JoeK>how can i check how much space a folder is using?

23:40<mgoetze>blocks i think, but i always use du -h
23:40<SelfishMan>checkers: I'm curious what place is publishing those diffs as Verisign GRS will revoke access to the data for even thinking about doing that
23:40<dudeman>does linode charge a setup fee? or is it just the monthly rate?
23:40<bd_>SelfishMan: if BIND chokes on them, I suspect it's not really a BIND zone file :)
23:40<bd_>dudeman: No setup fees
23:41<SelfishMan>bd_: They are 'BIND compatible'
23:41<dudeman>bd_: cool thanks.. thought I saw some websites mentioning it
23:41<bd_>dudeman: Linode used to charge setup fees, years back
23:41<dudeman>bd_: gotcha
23:41<bd_>but at least for the last year there haven't been any
23:41<checkers>SelfishMan: it's scene, so I don't think they have ever noticed :)
23:41<SelfishMan>In capitalist America, Linode pays you!
23:42<bd_>SelfishMan: how big is the zone file? :)
23:42<SelfishMan>bd_: Which one?
23:42<bd_>.com I guess
23:42<SelfishMan>5.9GB uncompressed, 1.4GB compressed
23:42<phennessy>how many domains?
23:42<SelfishMan>about 40MB compressed in changes on average per day
23:42<bd_>hmm, somehow I expected something larger
23:43<checkers>consider how many bytes the average line is :)
23:43<SelfishMan>That actually includes all NS records too
23:43-!-dudeman [] has left #linode []
23:43<MarkJ>how many zones are there, 5 billion?
23:43<SelfishMan>Not even close

23:45<bd_>phennessy: nah grepping 5.6G doesn't take /that/ long
23:45<bd_>5-10 mins is reasonable
23:45<phennessy>unless you have 32G of ram!
23:45<MarkJ>create a script to import just the zones into a database :)
23:45<phennessy>which i don't, but i can see where it'd be useful
23:45<MarkJ>then try querying!
23:45<bd_>phennessy: if you can fit the entire file in RAM, sure, it's even faster :)
23:46<bd_>MarkJ: substring search isn't something most database schemas will help with
23:46<SelfishMan>I actually just moved around the last few zone files so I'm trying to find them
23:46<checkers>does linux allow caching of partial files into the disk cache?
23:46<SelfishMan>.COM TLD has 78,664,223 unique domains
23:46<bd_>checkers: partial files?
23:46<checkers>"part of a file"
23:46<bd_>the linux disk cache operates in units of pages
23:46<bd_>ie, 4kb blocks
23:46<phennessy>i'm surprised that file is so big for that many records
23:47<SelfishMan>36,955 domains under .COM contain 'geek'
23:47<bd_>... it might be able to go down to 512 byte blocks if you have a smaller filesystem block size
23:47<MarkJ>what about .net then?
23:47<bd_>not sure. it wouldn't be very efficient, as it still carves out a full page for it
23:47<SelfishMan>Substantially smaller zones
23:47<bd_>checkers: but anyway, yeah, it does do parts of files
23:47<checkers>ah ok. is a page a segment of a file, or a segment of the raw disk itself?
23:48<SelfishMan>About 218MB compressed for .NET containing 11,960,759 unique domains and 7,086 containing 'geek'
23:48<@irgeek>!calc (5.6 * 2^30) / 78,664,223
23:48<linbot>irgeek: (5.6 * (2^30)) / 78,664,223 = 76.4382331
23:48<checkers>how many with matching *porn*?
23:49<bd_>checkers: both!
23:49<@irgeek>76 bytes per domain seems reasonable to me...
23:49<phennessy>i guess so..
23:49<checkers>ah, heh
23:49<SelfishMan>There are many that are 000---------------------------------------------------*
23:49<SelfishMan>and similar
23:50<SelfishMan>137560 under .COM matching 'porn'
