00:00<SelfishMan>wow, they are out
00:00<jroen>yeah, that's why I asked ;)
00:01-!-_Kyhwana_ [kvirc@2001:4428:20d::4] has joined #linode
00:02-!-Bdragon [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:03-!-Kyhwana [kvirc@2001:4428:20d::4] has joined #linode
00:07<amitz>I should probably buy a 14,400 and split it using chroot? if it's doable :-p.. profit!
00:07-!-|Kyhwana| [kvirc@2001:4428:20d::4] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:08-!-JM [] has joined #linode
00:09-!-_Kyhwana_ [kvirc@2001:4428:20d::4] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:09<checkers>if you made a profit, you'd have to sell it for more than linode would, so who would buy from you?
00:09<aaronpk>people who want a managed service
00:10<straterra>I make money on my linode o.O
00:10*aaronpk does too
00:10-!-Sputnik2 [~Sputnik7@] has joined #linode
00:11<amitz>checkers: people who can't wait for an empty freemont :-p
00:11<amitz>buy the 14,400 in freemont. The size should justify a new server.
00:12<jroen>how many regular websites can you run on a 360 linode? I am looking for a more reliable way to host some of my clients instead of on a shared reseller hosting account
00:12<straterra>Do you need php? mysql?
00:13<straterra>how many hits per day?
00:13<jroen>and mailservice
00:13<jroen>I figured mail would need the most of the slice
00:13<straterra>And I bet you'll hit swap with just those two roles
00:14<jroen>so, no go?
00:14-!-megatron27 [~firdaus@] has joined #linode
00:14<jroen>Not that many, in total 400 hits a day all websites together, these are corp websites that are just their 'presence on the web' altho they use email a lot
00:14<checkers>360 is fine then
00:15<checkers>400 hits is less than one a minute
00:15-!-Sputnik7 [~Sputnik7@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:15<jroen>ok thanks
00:15-!-Bass10 [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:15<jroen>then I will just go with a slice somewhere in the other 3 and wait for Fremont to become availabke
00:15-!-pwnguin [] has joined #linode
00:16<jroen>o yeah sorry :D
00:17<amitz>I wonder if some people in #slicehost mention node instead of slice? :-)
00:17<@jed>git experts:
00:17<@jed>I have a commit ID
00:17<@jed>how do I see the commit after it in the log
00:18<@jed>like, c47c1b1f3a9d6973108020df1dcab7604f7774dd^ gives me the one before
00:22-!-HalJordan_ [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
00:22-!-HalJordan_ [] has joined #linode
00:25<megatron27>but the word slice is so much sexier
00:25<aaronpk>if you're in to that sort of thing
00:28<amitz>the word node is sexier for another half of population.
00:28<jroen>"piece" works best for me and is universal

00:28-!-Kyhwana [kvirc@2001:4428:20d::4] has joined #linode
00:29<teef>jed: not sure if there's a direct way, but you could: git log --oneline |& less
00:30<teef>sorry you'll need git log --format=oneline |& less
00:30<@jed>basically I'm looking at;a=commitdiff;h=9049a11de73d3ecc623f1903100d099f82ede56c
00:30<@jed>which is a merge of 175 commits to mainline
00:30<@jed>I need to bisect zee whole thing
00:31<teef>throw a --children in there?
00:31<@jed>but, annoyingly, the log message snips the 175 commits
00:32<@jed>didn't like it
00:35-!-rose837 [] has joined #linode
00:35*jed reads with gloom in his eyes
00:35-!-mohney [] has joined #linode

00:42-!-Harry_Mudd [] has quit [Quit: WeeChat 0.3.0-rc2]
00:42<Smark>Horde webmail
00:42<Smark>is it secure and bug free (for the most part)?
00:43-!-peter [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
00:43<groulder>google apps for domains
00:43<groulder>use it.
00:43-!-MDW [] has joined #linode
00:45<Smark>do they store my mail?
00:46<aaronpk>you basically hand everything over to them and it just works
00:46<Smark>do they store my mail though?
00:46-!-JM [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:46<aaronpk>yes. but clients can still access it via pop/imap
00:48-!-Napta [] has joined #linode
00:49<amitz>Smark: you can have them copy all your mail to a designated address. You give up on dealing with yahoo hostility towards your email?
00:49<amitz>them = google apps.
00:49<straterra>Google apps is pretty damn good
00:50<amitz>straterra: althought it won't make you feel like a true sysadmin :-p
00:50<straterra>It saves a lot of hassle
00:50<aaronpk>exactly. meh. there are other sysadmin things i could be doing
00:51<straterra>I need something to help me stay awake :/
00:51<Smark>no, im not worried about the yahoo crap
00:51<straterra>this transfer is only 64% done
00:54-!-mcinerney [] has joined #linode
00:56<Smark>now with google apps for domains, as far as creating additional emails, managing redirects, how hard is it?
00:56<amitz>straterra: you're manning a transfer? maybe you can set the PC to yell fire if it's done?
00:56<aaronpk>pretty simple web interface. i think they also have a way to upload a CSV if you have a bunch of users to import
00:57<amitz>Smark: very easy, although the options may be a bit non-obvious. Just scan the options through.
00:57-!-elhippo_ [] has joined #linode
00:58<Smark>is it possible to play around with google apps without changing my existing mail server?
00:58<amitz>Smark: possible.
00:58<aaronpk>you can make your account and set everything up before actually changing your MX records
00:58<straterra>amitz: Not easily :/
00:59<Smark>is it free?
00:59<aaronpk>straterra: not true, it's pretty easy
00:59<amitz>free up to 50 users
00:59<aaronpk>they even give you fake email addresses you can use to send mail to your accounts before the MX records are set
00:59<Smark>well, im going to be having more than 50 users =S
00:59<Kerem>google creates a test address before you verify your domain
00:59<Smark>that 50 per domain or what?
00:59<aaronpk>fake meaning something like
01:00<amitz>you can have more than 50 emails per domain. But no more than 50 logins. 50 per domain.
01:00<amitz>I think.
01:00<straterra>I think they upped it to 200
01:00<straterra>My free account says 200 o.O
01:00<straterra>and I can request more without paying
01:00-!-argoe [~argoe@] has quit [Quit: argoe]
01:01<Kerem>Hmm "You can create up to 50 user accounts for this domain. If you would like more users, please purchase Google Apps Premier Edition."
01:03-!-elhippo [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
01:05<straterra>Can any of you read regex?
01:05<booja>nobody can read regex, regex reads you
01:06<straterra> ^.*\/*httpd
01:06-!-nb_ [] has quit [Quit: nb]
01:06<straterra>That's that mean? o.O
01:06<supine>straterra: context?
01:06<aaronpk>it's looking for "httpd" with 0 or more slashes before it
01:07<straterra>aaronpk: thank you
01:07<aaronpk>but yes, context?
01:07<straterra>Process check in Zenoss
01:07-!-nb_ [] has joined #linode
01:08<supine>so anyone can run a binary called httpd no matter where it's located
01:09<straterra>thats fine
01:13<Smark>can you create an alias without a new user on google apps?
01:13<bob2>yes, of course
01:14<Smark>i cant find it
01:14<aaronpk>yea, they call it groups now
01:14<bob2>otherwise it would be a "new user" rather than "an alias"
01:14<aaronpk>used to be lists
01:14<bob2>go to the user
01:14<bob2>add a nickname
01:14<aaronpk>ohh yea
01:14<aaronpk>good call
01:14<Smark>ah, ok, thanks
01:14<teef>jed: you still there? I think I've got some commits for you
01:15<Smark>i can't make an alias for "postmaster"?
01:16<bob2>you can make a group for postmaster
01:16<bob2>since google will always receive your postmaster and abuse@ emails, too
01:16<Smark>Username is reserved for email list only Cancel
01:16<Smark>when i try it
01:16-!-wastrel [] has joined #linode
01:17<wastrel>i just noticed that my monthly transfer is at 102%
01:17<Smark>i may look into this farther then, sounds very promising
01:17<Smark>wastrel, if you don't use anymore you're probably fine, but seeing as how you've got 11 days left...
01:17<bob2>assuming you're ok with skynet having all your email
01:17<SelfishMan>!skynet Can you read my email?
01:17<linbot>SelfishMan: Sorry, I don't know anything about that
01:17<SelfishMan>YOU LIE!
01:17-!-freireag [] has joined #linode
01:17<Smark>i know bob2, im looking to play around with it though
01:19<freireag>hey guys..i setted up my server one day ago and my apache process is growing more than a 100mb in one hour or less
01:19<bob2>let me guess
01:20<freireag>im looking to 300 used memory, and when i restart apache i see 190..
01:20<freireag>yeah, its just php right now
01:20<bob2>that doesn't matter, really
01:21*amitz wonders how people with VPS less than 360MB manage with PHP..
01:21<wastrel>bytecode cache
01:22<freireag>anybody knows what is happenning? i didnt tune my apache..nor php
01:22<amitz>I guess plenty of cache and lots of tuning.
01:22<freireag>just basic stuff, like timeouts and so
01:22<amitz>freireag: there your answer. Tune.
01:22<amitz>the keepalive seems like a popular tune here.
01:23<amitz>woah, I just realized. New IRC client = new mindset when IRC-ing.
01:23<freireag>i guess my keepalive is in 3 secs
01:23<nb>amitz, low traffic makes it not require as much
01:23<wastrel>amitz totally
01:24<amitz>nb: oh, didn't see about freireag's traffic.
01:24<nb>amitz, I DIDNT SEE EITHER
01:24<nb>oops sorry for caps
01:25<nb>i should go to sleep
01:25*nb is hitting keys without knowing it :)
01:25<amitz>what's with irssi <[space]nickname>
01:25<amitz>nb: oh, np :-)

01:33<Smark>with google apps is it possible to just redirect emails elsewhere? say to
01:42<Smark>without having to log into their account? I know I can do it from there.
01:42<@jed>teef: here now
01:42<@jed>it became moot, I was able to find a bisect point
01:44<amitz>jed: nice. The only time I use git is for specific purpose with a very detailed step by step rule.
01:44<amitz>seems powerful yet having steep learning curve.
01:45<@jed>bisect is the nizzle my bizzle
01:45<@jed>the problem is finding the left and right side of said bisect
01:45<@jed>I just spent all day bisecting v2.6.29..v2.6.30, only to find that the responsible commit was a merge commit
01:46<@jed>so now I have to bisect the merge
01:46<@jed>luckily I picked a good spot near the end, and it was good, so I have a relatively short left side
01:48<amitz>are you trying to find a particular patch having certain behavior?
01:49<amitz>the step-by-step guide I used is created for that purposes. But there is no mentioning of merge commit.
01:49<@jed>no, there was a bug introduced between 2.6.29 and 2.6.30
01:49<amitz>s/is/was/ . I wish English evolves such that tenses die.
01:49<@jed>In Certain Circumstances, of course
01:50<@jed>i can reproduce but upstream cannot, so for Ease Of Fixupping I'm bisecting to the very commit that broke stuff
01:50<amitz>jed: I basically used the git to find a patch that break regression testing, which is what you're doing right, I think.
01:50<@jed>sort of, I'm using bisect
01:52<amitz>let me search the guide, it may helps, hopefully.
01:53<amitz> . It uses bisect.

02:26<beginner22>Beginner linode user here. I installed PHP according to the instructions in the library. It went on successfully but fetching a php page on my linode results only in downloading the file, not executing it. What am I doing wrong?
02:26<bob2>need to mention a) what OS, b) what page you actually followed
02:26<beginner22>ok, hold on
02:27<beginner22>ubunto hardy 64
02:27<beginner22>looking for the page, hold on
02:27-!-Kyhwana [kvirc@2001:4428:20d::4] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]

02:28<beginner22>document =
02:28<beginner22>ok bob2, so which version should i use?
02:29<bob2>run 'dpkg -l libapache2-mod-php5 | tail -n1', paste the (one line of) output here
02:29<bob2>the i386 one
02:29<bob2>I think you forgot to run the :"apt-get install libapache2-mod-php5 php5 php-pear php5-suhosin php5-xcache
02:29<bob2>" line
02:29<beginner22>i did it
02:29-!-ph^ [~ph^@] has joined #linode
02:29<beginner22>but let me do it again
02:29<beginner22>just in case
02:31<beginner22>ran it again and got this: "php5 is already the newest version.
02:31<beginner22>" any idea?
02:31<bob2>16:29:02 < bob2> run 'dpkg -l libapache2-mod-php5 | tail -n1', paste the (one line of) output here
02:31<beginner22>ii libapache2-mod-php5 5.2.4-2ubuntu5.6 server-side, H TML-embedded scripting language (apache 2 module)
02:32<bob2>sudo a2enmod php5
02:32<bob2>then sudo invoke-rc.d apache2 restart
02:33<bob2>then try accessing the site again
02:36<beginner22>thanks bob2, it seems to be working :-)
02:36<beginner22>so what does the sudo a2enmod do exactly?
02:36<bob2>enable the php5 module
02:36<amitz>apache2 enable module.
02:36<bob2>which basically means symlinking .load file from /etc/apache2/mods-available to /etc/apache2/mods-enabled
02:41<beginner22>thanks a lot
02:42<beginner22>i wonder if they should update that library file with ur recommendations
02:47<beginner22>i just did apt-get install curl, still, when running a script that uses php curl functions, I get; "Fatal error: Call to undefined function curl_init() in /var/www/tests/s-meter.php on line 147"
02:47<beginner22>any idea?

07:37<hedac>can someone help me? I've just entered in Lish...
07:37<hedac>it says... Out of memory: Kill process 7691 ( apache2)

07:40<HoopyCat>hedac: if you're running apache and PHP, the default configuration assumes you have an infinite amount of memory. see for some tips on tuning that. (to start with, MaxClients around 10 and Keepalive 0 is probably a safe bet, and you can work MaxClients up from there)
07:41<hedac>entering in linode... says... Server refused our key

07:44<hedac>this is frustrating... 350-400 % cpu usage... no network usage... halted... Disk IO rate 25K.... this is in the dashboard graphs....
07:44<hedac>will have to reboot... last time it corrupted some mysql tables....
07:45<HoopyCat>hedac: 400% means your kernel has died, and huge disk IO spike usually means you've gone swap-thrashing. use less RAM, or buy more RAM, and your availability will improve.
07:46<hedac>maybe I should upgrade the kernel too.. reading the last linode blog.. there are some updates to kernels
07:48<HoopyCat>if you're set for Latest 2.6, you're all set and will pick up the new kernel on the reboot you're about to do
07:48<HoopyCat>(always look at the bright side ;-)
07:48<hedac>second try to log in lish seems responding better.... but nothing... it's strange
07:49<hedac>yes... I always try to look at the bright side... heh
07:49<hedac>I think it is on latest 2.6.. probably...
07:50<HoopyCat>log in and try to kill apache as quickly as possible. that'll probably give you room to work :-)
07:50<hedac>problem is that I can't log in...
07:50<hedac>lish keep writting thins on the screen but doesn't allow me to enter commands...
07:50<HoopyCat>what sort of things?
07:50<hedac>it's writing out of memory.. all the time.. lol
07:51<HoopyCat>immediately after a reboot? oof. hmm. might need to go for single user mode. (dashboard -> edit your config profile -> i think it's a radio button in there somewhere)
07:51<hedac>no,.. I'm rebooting now... and everytinh will be back to normal... I hope.

07:53<hedac>server alive again after reboot... I hope all mysql tables are ok...
07:54<hedac>but still I don't know what caused the problem... I'll check apache config
07:55<HoopyCat>it'll go along ok for awhile, and then it'll need to fork one too many processes (either a bit of additional traffic or maybe a query takes a couple moments longer), and then it'll start swapping... this causes requests to start taking longer, which means it will fork more processes to handle more concurrent connections....

07:57<hedac>yes... I would like to know if putting more RAM would solve this... but normally it doesn't consume so much RAM... the average is ok for my configuration...
07:58<HoopyCat>hedac: if you're ok most of the time, i'd just crank back MaxClients a long ways... that will directly limit how many concurrent connections apache will try to handle
07:58-!-alex-weej [] has joined #linode
07:58<hedac>Keepalive is set at 15
07:58<hedac>maybe I should put 0 ?
08:00<hedac>wow.. MAxClients is at 150
08:00<HoopyCat>some say 0, some say 1. that's how long it'll let the connection stay open after a browser is done sucking down a web page. not that useful, in practice, these days
08:00<hedac>but MaxClients is the one I have to reduce then
08:01<HoopyCat>if you assume everyone keeps their connection open the whole 15 seconds and actual request handling takes no time, that's... 10 connections/second. setting keepalive to 0 and maxclients to 10 will yield the same throughput with 1/15th the peak memory usage. ('course, theory very much != reality, but it's a way of thinking about it)
08:02<HoopyCat>(even better, if there are 10 connections being serviced and the 11th sucker wants in, they wait in line briefly. graceful degredation!)

11:27<beginner22>can someone help?
11:27<path>beginner22: what distro?
11:27<beginner22>ubuntu hardy 64
11:27<@caker>beginner22: !
11:29<path>more specifically
11:29<path>that also has some good info
11:29<megatron27>but for those who live in their word processor like a lot of people do, making the switch is going to be difficult
11:30<beginner22>ok, so the right category was "lamp"? I'm sorry still not used to finding stuff on the library
11:30<Daevien>you need to setup your linode with web server software, etc. it's not as simple as making the dns zone and then putting files somewhere and you are done
11:30<path>lamp is known as linux, apache, mysql, php
11:30<Daevien>it's much more complicated than shared hosting or managed servers for instance
11:31-!-oohoh [] has joined #linode
11:31<path>but nowadays people will use lighttpd instead of apache, postgres instead of mysql, and python instead of php.

11:31<linbot>Please don't install sendmail: despite the catchy name it isn't your best option for a mail server. If your needs are simple, consider postfix. More complex? Try exim. Don't need your server to receve mail? Try ssmtp.
11:31<megatron27>postgres instead of mysql? I missed the memo about that
11:32<beginner22>or just slightly more? i heard it was more fast
11:32-!-libervisco [] has joined #linode

11:34<Daevien>what do you consider a huge file?
11:34-!-kupesoft [] has joined #linode
11:34<@tychoish>beginner22: if you're new to this sort of thing, and don't have special needs, its probably easier to use Apache
11:34<path>but there is some phpcgi stuff which doesn't require mods in apache
11:34<Daevien>SpaceHobo, if he's askign these questions, don't throw out stuff like prefork & stuff. you'll mak ehis head explode :p
11:34<path>which is required for other webservers anyhow
11:34<beginner22>ok, I'll stick to apache then
11:34<@tychoish>I mean, it's true that there are other alternatives, and they do present some advantages over Apache in some situations
11:34<megatron27>well probably because of wealth of documentation
11:35<Daevien>SpaceHobo, then you'd be wrong
11:35<@tychoish>but apache is really well documented and quite flexible for most "hrm, I want to serve websites,"
11:36<beginner22>i guess I'm a "hrm... i wanna serve websites"
11:36<path>i would definitely learn with apache since there is a LOT of info out there on that
11:36<beginner22>(and run php scripts)
11:36<megatron27>you're not alone, I have a support group now
11:37<@tychoish>if in a year, you're like "dudes, my website is slow, and I don't want to keep throwing hardware, and I expect to get 10,000 hits an hour" come back and we'll talk about lighttpd
11:37<beginner22>reading this now: lighttpd vs apache:
11:37<path>then once you get a feel for things and want to try other things out, you'll be able to compare and know what the settings actually mean
11:37<beginner22>spacehobo: why "alas"?

11:38<@pparadis>yes again
11:38<megatron27>wtf is saphire?
11:38<teef>beginner22: think like religion, then apply to this conversation

11:39-!-dpickett [] has left #linode []
11:39<@pparadis>beginner22: depends on how you write your code.

11:40<path>so you call python from perl from cf?
11:40<@pparadis>not from cf
11:40<beginner22>the problem with learning to many languages is you get used to ways of coding, and then you start putting "+" instead of "." to concatenate strings...

11:55<beginner22>looking at this benchmark: am I right to conclude that apache2 would be faster for handling small files (for instance, a web site is often comprised of many small files) and lighty would be faster for large files?
11:56-!-Alan [] has joined #linode
11:57<beginner22>this one also suggests that lighty's specialty is large files:
11:58<megatron27>I don't know much about the performance of web servers but those articles are pretty old, I'm sure a lot has changed since then
12:00<beginner22>true, they're kinda old
12:00<steffan>beginner22: You are most probably better asking the developers yourself on #apache/#lighttpd
12:01<megatron27>personally, I use lighttpd because I can wrap my head around the configuration files
12:01<beginner22>steffan: ok, good idea
12:01<rainman`>lighttpd is also lighter in my experience

12:01<megatron27>I like knowing what every single line means in my configuration files but that's probably my OCD.
12:01<steffan>beginner22: Most websites just show user opinions, another option would just to be to try both out for yourself.
12:02<teef>as you have a linode, why not try both, and get your own benchmarks which reflect your actual usage?

13:34<obscurite>hey, what's a good alternative to ping if icmp is blocked. is there a ping over udp?

13:54<HoopyCat>beginner22: for what it's worth, cherokee exists in the ubuntu repos; by choosing to compile it as source, you will have to evaluate and deal with any security advisories yourself, including compiling and installing new versions as they're released. (apt-get update and upgrade won't touch cherokee.) that said....
13:54<HoopyCat>beginner22: did you apt-get install build-essential ?
13:56<beginner22>hold on
13:57-!-silverblade [] has joined #linode
13:57<beginner22>so reading by your first line, i should just do apt-get install cherokee?
13:58<HoopyCat>beginner22: generally, if you don't have a compelling reason to compile from source (and are fully aware of the consequences), it's best to go with what your distro has, even if it is relatively old

14:02<HoopyCat>Daevien: that'll eventually bite your ass on a dpkg-based distro. not so bad on an rpm-based distro, but that's probably because i spent years running centos. installing anything cool on centos is practically like warezing, but legal...

14:22<path>but thats where i'd like to take it
14:22<randallman>But check out cpan2rpm
14:22<randallman>it rock
14:23*path notes that
14:23<randallman>it actually takes 1 main argument, the name of the perl mod
14:23<randallman>and it downloads it and stuff :)
14:24<path>there is a "dh-make-perl" in ubuntu which does that kinda stuff
14:24<path>but it doesn't recursively build dependancies
14:24<beginner22>May someone be kind enough to tell me where i can find the document root of a server as in: "You can test php and its modules by making a file named for example info.php and putting it in document_root of the server. " -- still getting used to unix file syustem
14:25<path>probably /var/www/html
14:25<Karrde>beginner22: wherever your web server has defined it
14:25<path>or /var/www
14:25<Karrde>/var/www on many systems

14:40-!-Turl [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
14:40<randallman>o/~ We dont need a key, WE'LL BREAK IT! o/~
14:40-!-Battousai [] has joined #linode
14:42<JshWright>amitz: you're looking to delete an entry from the dict, or the whole dict?
14:43<HoopyCat>amitz: del(yourdict[key]), which calls yourdict.__delitem__(key)
14:44<JshWright>del isn't a fucntion
14:44<HoopyCat>i'm old-skool
14:44<amitz>JshWright: HoopyCat: got it, pop(). I found the attribute to print all attributes. Thanks guys!
14:44<HoopyCat>amitz: del yourdict[key], which calls yourdict.__delitem__(key)
14:45<amitz>HoopyCat: ooh, you can do that? hmm
14:45<JshWright>HoopyCat: the parens don't break anything, they just aren't needed since it's a statement
14:45<HoopyCat>i suppose pop() would do it too :-)
14:45<JshWright>yeah... but it's slowere
14:45<HoopyCat>JshWright: nod, i always forget.
14:46<HoopyCat>back to the mines, bbl
14:46<HoopyCat>(clickclickclickclickclickclickclick... hmm... clickclickclick)
14:47<amitz>I think solitaire, mines, and one other I forget are brilliants innovation from microsoft in teaching people to use mouse.
14:48<JshWright>amitz: you also have your_dict.clear() which will clear all the values from the dict
14:48<JshWright>but not delete the dict itself
14:50<amitz>JshWright: oh, I'll keep that in mind.

15:59<emag>especially since _my_ ldap server has no entries with an objectClass=ldapsubentry

18:33<silverblade>offtopic question but interested to hear a general opinion... for small ish (a few gb at most) archive/backups, what would the most reliable form of medium be for long term storage? i personally think flash memory, particularly SD card as they have write-protection.

18:34<laser`>SD cards is an interesting POV
18:35<silverblade>theyre not cheap unfortunately, but if you are archiving off some data you dont want to lose but will only want for "nostalgia", say some really old project you worked on once but abandoned for whatever reason
18:36<bd_>doesn't flash memory leak charge or something after a few years?
18:37<SelfishMan>Flash memory isn't stable over time
18:37<jtsage>huh. i was thinking the same

18:43<aaronpk>yea make sure you put it in a ziploc bag so it doesn't spill your data everywhere :P

18:46<SelfishMan>Hell, newspapers that were circulated and then put in walls for insulation 100 years ago are in better quality than most magnetic tapes in the last 10 years
18:46<aaronpk>it depends on the purpose of the backup. if you wanted to store a PSD file so that you could edit it again later, you can't really store that in an analog way

18:48<aaronpk>the Dollhouse seems to think they can

21:09<HslpGuise>so i am trying to set up ftp server so i can upgrade the plugins in wordpress automatically from the admin. How would i do that? I installed vsftp and i am lost
21:10<mwalling>HslpGuise: dont use ftp
21:10<HslpGuise>what should i use then
21:10<mwalling>HslpGuise: you can make the wordpress install owned by the webserver's user, then wordpress will do auto updates
21:11<HslpGuise>it is but then when i put info for the sftp it doesnt want to connect
21:11<Palintheus>amitz: /set scroll_page_count
21:12<mwalling>if the wordpress files are owned by the webserver user, it doesnt use ftp at all

21:19<repnop>i forget...are linodes prorated if you dont have it for a full month?
21:19<repnop>e.g. i have my 360
21:19<repnop>i start a 540, move data then kill the 360 (rather than use support to switch it)
21:19<aaronpk>repnop: yes. i had a linode for just a day and was billed ~ $0.75
21:19<repnop>if i do that over a weekend i wont get charged $50 for the month right...
21:20*repnop waits for caker, jed or mikegrb :p
21:21<HoopyCat>repnop: yes; cancelling a linode proratedly credits your linode account
21:21<repnop>since they only do billing the 1st of the month right
21:21<HoopyCat>repnop: or when you do something that causes your account to need moar moneys (e.g. adding a linode)
21:21<repnop>i figure if i'm going to have to take down my linode for kernel upgrade might as well upgrade ;)

21:34<repnop>i mean if i switch from a 360 to a 540
21:34<repnop>what is my quota for the month
21:34<repnop>should be higher than 200GB
21:34<repnop>but lower than 300GB right?

21:38<BarkerJr>iranians and chinese need free proxies
21:39<repnop>fair enough
21:39<repnop>i still hate tor traffic when it involves me :)
21:40<bob2>no different to some idiot on a home dsl line or rented server
21:40<@jed>Back on Wing Commander 1 we were getting an exception from our EMM386 memory manager when we exited the game. We'd clear the screen and a single line would print out, something like "EMM386 Memory manager error. Blah blah blah." We had to ship ASAP. So I hex edited the error in the memory manager itself to read "Thank you for playing Wing Commander."
21:40<amitz>bob2: soft like butter probably because linode bandwidth payment doesn't pay by quota, but by bandwidth size (or not at all).
21:40<@jed>^ best hack I've ever read
21:40<bob2>you're still not going to get help from the relevant abuse@ before it is too late
21:40<repnop>jed: haha slick
21:41<repnop>so jed if i upgrade from a 360 to 540 and use >200GB this month i shouldn't worry?
21:42<@jed>depends on how far "> 200 GB" you mean
21:42<repnop>at most 225GB or so
21:42<@jed>you'll probably be fine
21:42<@jed>we'll open a ticket if not
21:43<repnop>good to know :)
21:43<astronut>hey jed (asking you sinc eyou're the @ talking right now) - have you guys ever thought about a free transfer period immediately after the purchase of a linode?
21:43<astronut>for setup and such?
21:43-!-Mathew [] has joined #linode
21:43<BarkerJr>but repnop, maybe the chinese couldn't visit your site but through tor
21:44<astronut>i had several gigabytes of data and such to transfer to my linode, plus all the interaction i did (though i guess ssh is almost nothing but still)
21:44-!-[1]J-Node [] has joined #linode
21:44<repnop>BarkerJr: yeah thats cool, good for them if they use it.
21:44<repnop>i've never had legitimate tor traffic come to any network i have to deal with
21:44<repnop>always been some kid trying to grief people
21:44<repnop>so i just kill all tor endpoints and call it a day
21:44<bob2>astronut: thus you still have >95% of your allocation for the month left
21:45<bob2>astronut: 200GB is probably only reachable by <10% of linode users
21:45<BarkerJr>your lost customers :/
21:45<repnop>no customer uses tor
21:45<repnop>so i dont see how that would be relevent
21:45<BarkerJr>course not, cause you block them
21:45<@jed>astronut: I tend to agree with bob2 here
21:45<astronut>bob2: sure, i doubt i'll hit it, but it just seems like a nice enticement
21:46<astronut>maybe somthing like free .5*size(linode)
21:46-!-[1]J-Node [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
21:46<astronut>or even .25
21:46<bob2>why bother?
21:46<BarkerJr>it'd be better if you put tor users in a different class
21:46<@jed>we've never had many bandwidth problems, to be honest
21:46<BarkerJr>require registration or something
21:46<HoopyCat>astronut: get a linode towards the end of the month :-)

21:55<astronut>ah-ha, got one
21:55<HoopyCat>astronut: 100% == full qi of one host CPU, so 400% is the max
21:56<astronut>so ec2 is great for elastcicity, but linode is much cheaper for persistence
21:56<astronut>so use a linode to control an ec2 scalling or w/e

22:56<beginner22>This is off topic but if someone minds answering: what does that mean when a host uses "mod_bwlimited" in their apache server, such as here: "pache/2.2.11 (Unix) mod_ssl/2.2.11 OpenSSL/0.9.8i DAV/2 mod_auth_passthrough/2.1 mod_bwlimited/1.4 FrontPage/" (from a header check)
22:57<bob2>that they have loaded that module
22:57<bob2>it tells you nothing about whether it does anything
22:57<bob2>" I believe it's a built in cPanel module that limits bandwidth usage on a per host / per vHost basis (from memory). "
22:58<bob2>so it probably tells you their system is vulnerable to cpanel-related stuff
