00:01<Huitzilopochtli>supine: do you have a suggestion about how i can filter out the checks from ldirectord ?
00:02<supine>Huitzilopochtli: you mean in your web server logs?
00:02<Huitzilopochtli>no, in tcpdump
00:02-!-zefster [] has joined #linode
00:03<Huitzilopochtli>plenty of traffic leaves the load balancer !
00:03<Huitzilopochtli>i guess i can figure out what interface goes to outside world, nevermind
00:03<supine>define limits
00:03<supine>port 80 and not src ip LB_INT_IP
00:04<supine>of course i've forgotten my tcpdump speak
00:04<aaronpk>bummer... 6 hours to move my linode from newark to fremont
00:04<Pryon>At least you don't have to use a station wagon full of floppies
00:04<straterra>Don't copy that floppy
00:05<Pryon>!newercalc 16GiB in MiB
00:05<linbot>Pryon: 16384 MiB (mebibytes)
00:05<Pryon>!newercalc 16384MiB/1.44MiB
00:05<linbot>Pryon: 11380
00:05<supine>Huitzilopochtli: try 'port 80 and not host ...'
00:05<Pryon>only 11,380 floppies
00:05<Pryon>for a 360
00:05<aaronpk>!newercalc 11380 floppies in pounds
00:06<linbot>aaronpk: urmom
00:06<Bdragon>sounds more like something that wolfram thing would be better at
00:06<Pryon>!newercalc weight of a 3.5 inch floppy
00:06<linbot>Pryon: urmom
00:06<Pryon>not really
00:07<supine>Huitzilopochtli: I've only ever seen this working using masq. your setup was mostly for direct return.
00:07<Huitzilopochtli>supine: here i am telneting to port 80 of lb :

00:10<Huitzilopochtli>supine: ive gotten this to work with physical machines many many times, im not surew what im doing wrong
00:14<supine>Huitzilopochtli: that packet coming back is a reset
00:14<Huitzilopochtli>do i have something stupid set in sysctl.cnf on my load balancer ?
00:15-!-|Kyhwana| [kvirc@2001:4428:20d::4] has joined #linode
00:16<supine>Huitzilopochtli: not sure if it's sysctl but there is definitely something weird going on. you sure there is no firewall running?
00:17-!-MJCS [] has joined #linode
00:18<supine>Huitzilopochtli: also, you have a direct return config setup so change 'masq' back to 'gate'. n.b. I've never heard of anyone using that method on Linode, doesn't mean it can't be done
00:19<Huitzilopochtli>supine: i haven't installed any firewall stuff. its just default debian.
00:21<supine>Huitzilopochtli: netstat -pan | grep LISTEN

00:36<jordanb>How would I go about downgrading my linode?
00:37<reillyeon>jordanb: Enter a support ticket, it will need to be migrated.
00:39<amitz>interesting approach.. you pirate windows XP, then turn yourself in to BSA, then buy the so called impossible to buy XP licenses :-D
00:39<jordanb>Ok thanks.
00:43<Huitzilopochtli>supine: any more ideas?
00:46<supine>Huitzilopochtli: log files? the ipvsadm output shows ldirectord is doing all the right things but perhaps there is something else enlightening?
00:47-!-J-Node [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:48<Huitzilopochtli>supine: i looked through all of that, the only interesting thing is this 'failed: No child processes" error

00:52-!-jaiZ [~jaiZ@] has joined #linode
00:53<jordanb>One more question.
00:53<jordanb>I'm trying to figure out a better way to do backups.
00:53<jordanb>Currently I'm rsyncing to my home computer each night
00:54<supine>Huitzilopochtli: not quite sure what that is. if you stop ldirectord does the ipvsadm output empty? when you restart ldirectord do you see the same errors in the logs?
00:54-!-_Kyhwana_ [kvirc@2001:4428:20d::4] has joined #linode
00:54<jordanb>The linode faq says I can make another partition if I have space left over through the manger.
00:54<jordanb>Wouldn't that end up on the same disks as my linode?
00:55<jordanb>So I wonder why they suggest that as an option. :p
00:55<reillyeon>In case you want more than one partition?
00:55<jordanb>As a backup option
00:55<Bdragon>Because the vast majority of file lossages on linode have not been hardware related.
00:56<Bdragon>there has been only one multiple-disk failure in linode history.
00:56<StevenK>I thought there was two
00:56<SelfishMan>Bdragon: two
00:56-!-jaiZ [~jaiZ@] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
00:56<Bdragon>oh, right
00:56<SelfishMan>but the second one had a fair amount of recovery
00:56<amitz>teef: but there is no mentioning that the license is not available..
00:56<Huitzilopochtli>supine: yes, and yes. i think that error doesn't matter
00:56<jordanb>I remember right when I signed up for linode someone unsubscribed telling me their node had been nuked.
00:56<Bdragon>Sorry, it's 6 to midnight, I'm getting a bit fuzzy
00:56<jordanb>I guess that was a while ago, I had a linode64.
00:57<amitz>teef: in short, there is hope :-)
00:57<jordanb>I'm thinking about downgrading my linode 540 to two linode 360s.
00:57<teef>amitz: it's really tough to buy site xp now
00:57<jordanb>Does anyone use anything else, like amazon s3 or somethin?
00:58<jordanb>My main thing is I don't like my backups relying on my DSL line.
00:58<reillyeon>I pull backups to my home system, but I have a pretty fast connection.
00:58<jordanb>Mine is working fine in terms of how much bandwith it uses. But when I travel I like to turn my computers off, etc.
00:58-!-jaiZ [~jaiZ@] has joined #linode
00:59<jordanb>And also my connection is sometimes flaky.
01:00-!-|Kyhwana| [kvirc@2001:4428:20d::4] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
01:00<bob2>I use s3 with duplicity
01:00<amitz>teef: I personally believe that people must get out of microsoft dependency ASAP, while they still can. There is no telling the kind of scheme they will set up to sink us deeper.
01:01-!-J-Node [] has joined #linode
01:01<jordanb>bob2; How do you like it?
01:01<bob2>works well...nice and fast, pretty cheap
01:01<supine>Huitzilopochtli: looks that way. running out of ideas at this point.
01:01<bob2>.au has metered home internetz, so it is a lot cheaper to use s3 than suck it down to my house
01:02<jordanb>Microsoft seems like a dinosaur to me. They used to be really scary.
01:03<amitz>teef: but of course this kind of thinking is a too "long term thinking". The justification is too difficult to create.
01:03<jordanb>All they can do now is rattle the patent saber.
01:05<amitz>jordanb: one of the think that makes me want to get off microsoft ASAP is their Visual Foxpro 7 EULA on running VFP7 on wine. I mean, even if it's within their right to do that, it's foul play!
01:05<jordanb>Heh. I'm suprised they still sell Foxpro.
01:05<amitz>basically they don't allow you to run VFP7 on wine.
01:05<SelfishMan>amitz: First of all, people still use Foxpro?
01:06<jordanb>SelfishMan; That doesn't suprise me so much. People still use DB2.
01:06<SelfishMan>Second, it isn't in their right. Microsoft has been hit hard by that and Apple is getting attacked pretty good too
01:06<amitz>SelfishMan: I shamelessly admit, I do :-p
01:06<jordanb>I'm suprised that microsoft is still willing to sell it though.
01:06<amitz>it's a legacy application I really want to kill..
01:07<jordanb>My favorite thing about foxpro is that it came out of that mid-80s school of thought that the hardest thing about programming is the typing.
01:07<amitz>jordanb: oh no, I don't think they sell it anymore.
01:07<jordanb>So *everything* can be abbreviated.
01:08<jordanb>And is, by all the superbly lazy foxpro programmers
01:08<amitz>jordanb: yeah, the 4 letters magic. :-)
01:09-!-J-Node [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
01:09<teef>amitz: well we have a business critical app that's windows. there is a linux version, but it's just mainwin, so not what you'd want.

01:11<amitz>SelfishMan: up to 2004, there is this financial institution that is powerful enough to significantly propagate the currency crash in south east asia, still using foxpro, for dos.
01:12<amitz>as their core application
01:15<jordanb>I also notice that there seems to be quite a job market avaliable for maintaining legacy coldfusion
01:16<teef>have to bail, night all
01:16-!-teef [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
01:20<amitz>jordanb: high paying?
01:21<jordanb>Dunno. Maybe you could drive a hard bargin. ;)
01:21<jordanb>It seems like I get approached fairly frequently about coldfusion. I always say I know nothing about it and am not interested in learning.

01:26<aaronpk>ok, so i'm cloning a disk image from linodeA to linodeB. i want to start linodeA as soon as the copy is done, but the queue for linodeA is empty because linodeB has the copy task. is there a way to do this?
01:27<SelfishMan>aaronpk: yep. Wait for the clone to finish then click boot
01:27-!-HedgeMage [] has quit [Quit: Bedtime!]
01:27<aaronpk>>:( i will be asleep when it's done
01:27<SelfishMan>oh. bad planning then.
01:28<SelfishMan>shrink the image to save time
01:28<aaronpk>yes. i was hoping for something a bit faster than 400kb/s
01:28<SelfishMan>It shouldn't be that slow
01:28<aaronpk>newark to fremont
01:28<SelfishMan>in fact, I've never actually seen it that slow
01:28<SelfishMan>I do Newark <-> Fremont all the time
01:29<aaronpk>ok so it's 460kb/s right now
01:30-!-MJCS [] has joined #linode
01:30<nb>NICE! Fedora 11 is offered now
01:32<jordanb>Heh, I like it how's shared hosting pricing is horrible compared to's vps pricing.
01:32<jordanb>$20/mo for a 100MB shared host with 1GB of transfer.
01:32<jordanb>OOhh Boy! And Apache 1.3!
01:32<checkers>probably not updated since they launched linode ;)
01:33<jordanb>They're running it now on a linode. ;)

01:41<nb>any staff around?
01:41<nb>ny newly installed profile with fedora 11 doesn't appear to have networking set up or something
01:42-!-_Kyhwana_ [kvirc@2001:4428:20d::4] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
01:47<jordanb>That's a feature of fedora. They depricated networking because somebody penciled up this awesome system that will work way better someday. ;)
01:48<jordanb>In the meantime they'll close any bug regarding networking as WONTFIX
01:50<nb>jordanb, /me uses network service not NetworkManager
01:51<nb>actually what it is is that the linode image for fedora 11 appears to not set up /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0
01:51-!-jaiZ [~jaiZ@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]

01:55<@tasaro>nb: is dhcp not working on the new Fedora image?
01:55<nb>tasaro, it didn't appear to
01:55<nb>either that or just dns didn't
01:55<jordanb>Wow storage on S3 is embarassingly cheap
01:55*nb doesn't know if he actually tried to connect to IPs when it was using dhcp
01:56<Bdragon>jordanb: Of course you get charged to move stuff on and off of it
01:56<nb>I know resolv.conf appeared to be empty
01:56<jordanb>Per GB
01:56<supine>jordanb: and then you get charged for accessing it
01:56<jordanb>Transfer is 10¢ per gb
01:56-!-jtaji [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
01:56<nb>tasaro, i ended up just setting up static configs and that is working
01:56<jordanb>And with rsync my backups are a few hundred megs a night, tops
01:56<@tasaro>ok, deploying a fresh image to test on my end
01:56<Bdragon>jordanb: Two words: bulk savings.
01:57<Bdragon>or, economy of numbers
01:57<jordanb>I'm just thinking my whole backup scheme could cost a few dollars a month on S3
01:57<nb>jordanb, yeah, i need to set it up again
01:57<nb>jordanb, id recommend jungledisk
01:57<Bdragon>I use mozy on the family pee cee
01:58<nb>its 2.00/month for a really nice program that backs up to s3
01:58<nb>or it backs up to rackspace cloudfiles
01:58<bob2>but then you have to use jungledisk
01:58<jordanb>I think I'd use duplicity
01:58<nb>which is 15c per gb/month and no bandwidth
01:58<aaronpk>how fast is the disk copy within the same datacenter?
01:58<nb>bob2, actually no, not if you use compatibility buckets
01:58<nb>bob2, compatibility buckets stores it using the regular format, not the special jungledisk format
01:59<bob2>what's the hitch then?
01:59-!-jhford [] has joined #linode
01:59<jordanb>Why use a proprietory layer on s3 when duplicity works fine?
02:00<nb>duplicity is semi proprietary also
02:00<Bdragon>having someone to yell at over the phone when shit breaks?
02:00<nb>doesn't it use a special format?
02:00<jordanb>Really? It's in debian.
02:00<bob2>it uses gpg + tar + librsync
02:00<nb>jordanb, well, its open source
02:00<bob2>so 'no'
02:00-!-|Kyhwana| [kvirc@2001:4428:20d::4] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
02:00<nb>There's an open source code that reads the jungledisk format buckets also
02:00<bob2>is the trick just that jungledisk stores so much data they get the reduced per/GB cost, and thus eat the traffic cost for you?

02:01-!-J-Node [] has quit [Read error: Operation timed out]

02:01<nb>if you don't want it encrypted
02:01-!-blognewb [~User82934@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
02:01<jordanb>The transfer costs for me would be tiny with this thign.
02:01<jordanb>It'd be like a dollar a week
02:01-!-[1]Guspaz [] has joined #linode
02:01<nb>bob2, well, jungledisk is owned by rackspace so they have a special deal with if you use cloudfiles
02:01<nb>if you use s3, you pay the same as what amazon charges anyone
02:03-!-Guspaz [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
02:03-!-[1]Guspaz is now known as Guspaz
02:03<jordanb>I feel bad for the guys. They seem pretty cool but they're many times the cost of amazon.
02:03<jordanb>I was looking at them, I might as well buy another linode for what they're charging.
02:04<nb>tasaro, another little issue
02:04<nb>[root@li59-77 ~]# passwd

02:04*nb is not sure why it would have not found the passwd command
02:04<nb>and i had to symlink vi to vim
02:04<jordanb>Is your path correct?
02:05<nb>jordanb, dunno, im using whatever it came with
02:05*nb checks
02:05<nb>[root@li59-77 ~]# echo $PATH

02:07<@tasaro>nb: thanks -- have made a note for jed to check it out when he comes in tomorrow morn
02:08<nb>tasaro, ok
02:08<@tasaro>it was actually pushed out today (yesterday) - brand new template image
02:08<nb>yeah, i know last night i only saw fedora 9
02:08*nb was actaully hoping you woujld upgrade it, it makes it a whole lot easier for me to upgrade to rawhide, /me wants to use a linode to do some testing
02:09<nb>so i was happy to notice this today :)

02:31<encode>that sounds like a good idea. /me switches his browser identity string to SelfishMan
02:32<jordanb>I browse as 'telnet'
02:32<wabz>sites showing different content to googlebot will get themselves removed from the index fairly quickly :p
02:33<wabz>unless they're just removing ads and stuff
02:33<encode>wabz: by whom? yahoo? :P
02:33<jordanb>Expert sex change did taht for years.
02:33<bob2>clearly not
02:33<bob2>since lots of places do exactly that
02:33<bob2>e.g. safari
02:34<bob2>and scribd
02:34<jordanb>Scribd is a crime against humanity anyway.
02:34<bob2>shame there's no built in way to exclude rubbish from your results
02:34<wabz>it depends what 'content' you're changing
02:35<bob2>$keywords etc
02:35<wabz>you could probably use greasemonkey to do that bob2
02:36<SelfishMan>"Where did modsecurity went?"
02:36<SelfishMan>nb: I was testing how a site would handle various search engines
02:37<wabz>encode: try with UA 'googlebot' :p
02:38<SelfishMan>wabz: looks exactly the same
02:39<wabz>shouldn't be ads with googlebot

10:09<@tychoish>knipster: if you're writing something that interacts with the kernel directly, or using an app that does, you might (and this is a stretch) get some benefit from running something newer. there have also been instances where some distributions work better with newer kernels, but I would always take the "let me use the oldest stable that will work

10:17<knipster>tychoish: thanks, I suspected something like that, do you know of common examples of apps like that? The closest thing I think of (for small business/techie personal) would be something like Asterisk
10:22<@tychoish>I think it really depends on your specific compliment of programs,... so I'm not sure. Asterisk makes sense as one. I think in general "if you don't know if you need the latest kernel or not, you probably don't,"

10:28<iicsa>(r,sync,no_subtree_check) - is r not valid? i want read only
10:29<iicsa>what is read only? ro?
10:29<Bdragon>readonly is the default.
10:29<Bdragon>you use rw if you want readwrite
10:29<iicsa>ahhh cool thanks.
10:30<Bdragon>ro does work too
10:30<Bdragon>r doesn't
10:30<iicsa>ok, i just took out the 'r' works nice :)

11:06<@tychoish>Big-Mama: what are you trying to acomplish?
11:07<Big-Mama>I'm trying to connect to an IRC server with a special port (8005).

11:09<Big-Mama>Okay, just a space.
11:09<@tychoish> 8005
11:09<@tychoish>you can also specify things in your config file
11:09<Big-Mama>It looks like 8005 on this server is SSL.
11:10<Big-Mama>8006 port is non-ssl.
11:10<Big-Mama>Doesn't IRSSI support SSL?
11:10<hawk>Big-Mama: /help connect
11:10<Big-Mama>hawk: No worries, I'm connected via. non-ssl.
11:10<Big-Mama>But I thought IRSSI would support SSL connections.
11:10<Big-Mama>Anyways, no biggie, I'll be fine :)
11:10<hawk>Big-Mama: Ok, I thought maybe you wanted to use SSL, hence the reference to the docs
11:11<Big-Mama>Oh, I'm sorry.
11:11<Big-Mama>A little too quick there.
11:11<Big-Mama>Non-ssl will do for now, I'll sort it out later :)
11:11<Big-Mama>Thanks for all your help again #Linode :P

14:07<JasonF>it's much better

14:38<rainman`>i've seriously started to hate java
14:38<randallman>Actually no...
14:38<randallman>Our chief app architect who is actually sharp did :)
14:38<rainman`>i realised that i started java 7 years ago, and python 6 months ago
14:39<rainman`>and i understand the latter much better in every possible way
14:39<fapestniegd>randallman: I'd argue that based on his choices...
14:39<randallman>And our oracle ties go clear back to the late 90s
14:39<randallman>when MySQL wasnt cutting it
14:39<randallman>nor postgresql ;p
14:39<path>kill the developers!
14:39<rainman`>oracle is nice stuff, if you can get yourself a DBA
14:39*path runs off
14:39<randallman>Rainman, we haev a team of 4 DBAs
14:39<fapestniegd>until you need to roll a patch back...
14:40<rainman`>randallman, then it's quite doable
14:40<fapestniegd>"go to tape, restore from the last backup"
14:40<randallman>We use disk staging for oracle :) So no tapes involved; )
14:40*rainman` manages a 1TB mysql database that always should be faster, and has no DBA or anything resembling it
14:40<path>rollback urmom
14:40<randallman>plus we do arch log backups ;p
14:40<randallman>so we can restore to any second of any day for the last year
14:40<rainman`>did you ever do it? :>
14:40<fapestniegd>randallman: yeah, metalink zombies like that so they can "roll back" often
14:41<randallman>I hate metalink :) Especially the new flash one :)

14:41<randallman>we've had bugs cause data munging :)
14:41<randallman>Jed, good question :0
14:41<@jed>is it that hard to be a DBA? (I really wouldn't know)
14:41<randallman>No, not reall
14:41<rainman`>randallman, wrong answer, the correct one is "we do it every few weeks, to make sure it actually really really works"
14:41<randallman>Rainman, we do 1/4ly tests, sure
14:41<randallman>I thought you meant really... not a drill :)
14:42<rainman`>jed, it's a profession like any else really
14:42<rainman`>i think
14:42<@jed>I mean, my brother-in-law works with a DBA for MySQL who, fresh out of college, makes $95k at a large chipmaker
14:42<@jed>$95k fresh out of 4-year is nuts
14:42<randallman>that's a nice fresh out of 4 year salary :)

15:58<Dash>it used to work ... I just restarted the server and its causing the issue
15:58<Karrde>look at the log files
16:00<Dash>dont see any requests in the apache log files
16:00<Dash>could be firewall things then ha?
16:00<Karrde>what about the apache error log if any? what about the system log?
16:00<Dash>oh let me check
16:01<LostNeutrino>a few things. is there a more extensive side-by-side comparison of the different service levels than that on the homepage? what are the uptime guarantees for a linode? where can the linode aup be viewed?

16:04<LostNeutrino>what's the outbound connection?
16:04<@jed>LostNeutrino: fast.
16:05<@jed>I'm not trying to be coy or anything, but honestly, you'd never cap it and not pay overages within a few minutes. :)
16:07<LostNeutrino>possibly, but if i want burst transfers to be fast, it's still a reasonable question whether it's 10 100 or 1000 mbps
16:09<bliblok>1000 at least
16:10<bliblok>but your upload is capped lower by default, you'll have to put in a ticket to have it raised
16:11<LostNeutrino>capped throughput, or capped speed?
16:11<HoopyCat>fortunately, there's a safety limiter somewhere south of that to prevent a runaway somethingorother from going through your bandwidth quota in a few seconds
16:11<Karrde>17:16:46 <@ jed> 33 mbit sustained up

16:13<LostNeutrino>well 33 d/u seems pretty solid
16:13<Karrde>it maxes out my commercial home internet and that's all that matters
16:14<@jed>LostNeutrino: I removed my cap, and speedtest can't handle the full load
16:14<@jed>on a legal torrent I got about 145 mbit down
16:15<LostNeutrino>the tos says that services such as tor are allowed, then says that usage that 'prompts the receipt of abuse complaints pertaining to violation of United States and/or international copyright law must be promptly discontinued' without comment regarding the validity of these complaints. how are the two reconciled? does linode have a specific policy on tor?
16:16<path>i thought tor was only used by pedofiles
16:16<teef>Dash: can you connect to the webserver from the same box
16:16<teef>Dash: netcat localhost 80
16:16<teef>or nc localhost 80
16:17<LostNeutrino>and journalists, leaks, whistleblowers, people in iran and china, students, researchers... &c
16:17<teef>Dash: if that doesn't respond, then type: HEAD / HTTP/1.0
16:17<teef>Dash: and then another Carriage Return
16:17<HoopyCat>LostNeutrino: i'd consider 47 USC 230(c)(1), "No provider or user of an interactive computer service shall be treated as the publisher or speaker of any information provided by another information content provider", as a possible reason why linode might not answer that question
16:18<path>well, i'm supposing if illegal stuff comes or goes to your linode IP and you do nothing to stop it, than you will have your service discontinued
16:18<path>i think that is regardless of using tor or not.
16:18<randallman>wow what a fat frakkin' hack... I actually had to compile the old-assed DB3 for nsperl to work from Sun Java System Directory Server 5.2p6 on Linux
16:19<linbot>New news from forums: [ Poll ] rm -rf / in /dev/random <>
16:19<HoopyCat>LostNeutrino: exercising editorial control over the content of you, the publisher, has been found to move otherwise-immune entities uncomfortably close to "publisher"
16:19<Karrde>I'm compiling the very latest zlib, openssl, and openssh on a Tru64 system (a Compaq ES45) :|
16:19<path>i used the dag weirs rpm :/
16:19<randallman>For db3?
16:19<path>no, for git?
16:19<randallman>It exists? :P
16:19<LostNeutrino>my point is that it is totally legal to run a tor node, as HoopyCat points out. howver doing so might prompt 'the receipt of abuse complaints pertaining to violation of United States and/or international copyright law' though these complaints would be baseless
16:19<path>i guess you moved on
16:19<randallman>I finished git :)
16:19<randallman>I'm working on setting up a demo environment and we were using SJSDS5.2 on Solaris - but I wanted to build this in VM... SO i found SJSDS binaries for Linux
16:19<randallman>but they are for RHEL2.1 :)(
16:20<LostNeutrino>HoopyCat, running a node is legal, but may prompt complaints - which would be dismissed if there were a trial - but it would prompt complaints
16:20<path>if someone downloads illegal stuff using a tor exit node you host on linode, and you do not stop that behavior. i suspect they will close your account.
16:20<path>i don't think they care what you run, as long as no take down requests are received.
16:20<@jed>LostNeutrino: pasting us the tor boilerplate response is a good way to get us annoyed, by the way
16:20<HoopyCat>LostNeutrino: if you're an exit node, i recommend having a decent budget for legal defense, no matter what the tor faq says about the police saying "oh, never mind then, have a good day"
16:21<LostNeutrino>HoopyCat, i'm not concerend about my legal defence, i'm concerned about linode ending my service.
16:21<LostNeutrino>jed, i don't follow you
16:22<@jed>LostNeutrino: a fair number of users of tor believe that pasting the tor boilerplate response verbatim (which tor supplies) is an immediate "oh, the problem goes away" button
16:22<@jed>which, in fact, it is not
16:22<@jed>look, let's talk me to you for a second
16:22<@jed>you know what tor's about.
16:22-!-linoder [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
16:22<@jed>you know how it can be misused.
16:22<LostNeutrino>jed, you mean, in response to abuse requests?
16:22<SelfishMan>Law enforcement looks at this stuff in a very simple way
16:23<randallman>It's kinda like parking your car in a parking lot, unlocked, with a shotgun in the dashboard...
16:23<randallman>Sure, it's not necessarily illegal
16:23<@jed>tor is used for a variety of purposes, I agree -- but you are responsible for every byte of traffic leaving your linode
16:23<randallman>but damn, it's stupid :)
16:23<randallman>And it's likely someone is gonna get shot in the process :)
16:23<randallman>(with your gun, mind you)
16:23<SelfishMan>They keep following the finger pointing until it dead ends. If you can't point and say it was a specific person then you are liable for the illegal activities
16:23<path>every tor user would be a user on your system.. you are providing a service to them.
16:23<@jed>and you are responsible for their actions
16:24<LostNeutrino>is that your deduction, or linode's policy?
16:24<randallman>Personally, I think folks who setup Tor nodes are crazy :) I'd NEVER loan my house to someone who I didn't know :)
16:24<randallman>Why would I loan my server to them?
16:24<@jed>Linode does not prohibit the use of distributed, peer to peer network services such as Tor, nor does Linode routinely monitor the network communications of customer Linodes as a normal business practice. However, customers are responsible for the contents of network traffic exiting their Linode.
16:25<LostNeutrino>jed, yes, i just read that, and i was hoping that a member of staff in here might be able to tell me more specifically about the policy wrt tor in particular
16:25<HoopyCat>LostNeutrino: having worked on an abuse desk, approx. 99.99% of customers generate absolutely zero abuse complaints... the 0.01% that do, even if it's something unintentional like being part of a resi windows botnet, are usually not worth the PITA. the abuse desk isn't a profit center.
16:25<HoopyCat>'tho if we sold ad space on the autoresponders... *thinks*
16:26<@jed>LostNeutrino: the policy is fairly clear. if you get an abuse complaint, you must address it.

16:29<path>you might need to "address" the issue with them
16:29<LostNeutrino>jed, tor is a legal use that may promote allegations that it is not. this is clearly a situation that different hosts feel differently about. i wanted to know the specific way that linode feels about this
16:29<HoopyCat>randallman: i think you meant to phrase that as "so, does anyone have any recommendations for VPS providers other than linode? i want to, uhh, try something experimental"
16:30<@jed>tor is legal
16:30<@jed>but if you open your exit node, you know full well what people will use it for
16:30<randallman>Hoopy, this was at my house :)
16:30<LostNeutrino>yes, but that does not make its use any less legal, especially under us law
16:30<randallman>dont use my linode for questionable activities :)

16:31<LostNeutrino>jed, no i'm not.
16:31<@jed>our terms of service (civil) dictate that you are responsible for all traffic exiting your linode
16:31<LostNeutrino>...despite specifically mentioning tor
16:31<@jed>legality or not, if we get a dozen DMCA complaints for you due to your tor node, we're going to demand (for the protection of our network) that you do something to curb their flow
16:32<@jed>and let me tell you something
16:32<@jed>close to 99% of tor exit nodes in our network have generated at least 1 DMCA complaint

16:33<teef>by the minute
16:33<@jed>LostNeutrino: to answer your root question, we mention tor specifically in the ToS because there was a rash of DMCA tickets for tor, followed by the tor boilerplate, and we needed to reaffirm our position that you are responsible for every complaint received
16:33<@jed>tor just gets the honorable mention as it's the big one
16:34<Dash>MY IP address is not responding its gailing with fck errors
16:34<@jed>we get far more tor complaints than we do bittorrent (if you can believe that)

18:31<vuf>noexec is overrated ... how about limiting apache users with iptables, do you guys do that?
18:32<Solver>limited individual users?
18:32<Solver>netfilter will do that but I don't do it
18:32<Solver>I've always thought of it being for system users though
18:34<vuf>if an account gets hacked, it might be good that it had limited connectivity ... I don't know
18:35<Solver>yes containing an intrusion is a good idea

18:36<randallman>How many local exploits get released per month?
18:36<Solver>a lot
18:36<randallman>and how many of those are 0 day? NONE
18:37<Solver>there are 0day local root exploits
18:37<randallman>That's what I'm saying - and it takes days or weeks to get patches for them

18:40<Solver>oh well
18:40<randallman>It continues to amaze me about how people posture that they are 'secure'

18:40<randallman>and IPS devices

20:20<digitaljhelms>i guess that was the answer to the question i asked...
20:20<digitaljhelms>how about, why is there no default mta on the debian linode distro
20:21<bob2>it's a very stripped down image
20:21<bd_>The MTA is installed by default from a CD install or pulled in when you install a package that uses a MTA
20:21-!-|Kyhwana| [kvirc@2001:4428:20d::4] has joined #linode
20:21<supine>and you can install whichever you prefer without having to uninstall anything

20:23<digitaljhelms>i knew them to be minimal, but i sware i've had at least _some_ mta installed on the half dozen linodes i've set up...? guess i'm smoking crack today...
20:25<digitaljhelms>well, on that note, this particular cluster of linodes i'm setting up needs an outbound only mta for cron and other apps to report with; i was going to go with exim because i thought it was installed by default, but having a choice now, what is suggested? this cluster will be three linodes, 2 relaying mail to 1 primary nullclient mta that is outbound only.
20:27<bob2>postfix is super easy to configure
20:27-!-CyZooNiC [] has joined #linode
20:28<bob2>but if you've used exim in the past, that's probably reason enough to stick with it
20:28<CyZooNiC>Is there a Linode email list I can signup for so I get things like the latest blog post regarding the kernel vulnerabilities?
20:29<bob2>I guess you could use feedburner to subscribe to the blog thing
20:30-!-szabo [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]

20:30-!-szabo [] has joined #linode
20:31<digitaljhelms>bd_: ahhhhh, that's why I thought exim was in the default debian linode distro, i just blow through to the app setup and cron tasks and the mta makes it onto the box with magic...

23:24<orudie>how can i find out what cigarettes cost is per state in the U.S. ?
23:27<@caker> <-- seems fairly accurate/recent
23:27<orudie>thanks looking at it now
23:28<@caker>In other news: I quit smoking 10 months, 3 weeks, 6 days, 7 hours, 28 minutes, and 21 seconds ago. I would have smoked 5,303 cigarettes. (That's like smoking a 0.25 mile-long cigarette) I've saved $1,590.90! I've avoided 63 grams of tar, 5 grams of nicotine, and 63 grams of carbon monoxide.
23:28<MJCS>fuck $1600
23:29<MJCS>thats a nice new gaming computer
23:29<teef>Smark check your webserver logs for clues on which webmails not to install...
23:29<@caker>teef: heh
23:29<aaronpk>*ahem* roundcube
23:29<teef>much though I like it
23:29<MJCS>my gaming network has had squirl mail for almost a decade
23:30<SelfishMan>just don't install it in /webmail, /roundmail, /roundcube or in the root
23:30<SelfishMan>if you are actually willing to install it at all
23:30<teef>or /rc
23:30<MJCS>comeup wit a unique name
23:30<teef>or /mail
23:30<SelfishMan>I see regular attacks for roundcube and horde
23:30<teef>but they'll find it eventually, especially if you have a link

23:41<encode>you could add apache basic auth to the directory. That should prevent random people from accessing the (potentially vulnerable) URLs
