00:00<amitz>say, what a suggested static html builder? Like microsoft word? That works on window?
00:01*HedgeMage shudders
00:01<HedgeMage>wysiwyg editors in general are trouble.
00:01<amitz>I fear using microsoft word will make the page unrenderable by other browser :-p
00:02<mwalling>have you ever seen word-html?
00:02<amitz>HedgeMage: just for simple page building, it shouldn't cause much trouble :-)
00:02<amitz>mwalling: googling word-html.
00:02<mwalling>i meant the html that word makes
00:03<amitz>oh, you mean that. actually no but I don't have word in front of me right now so can't test it.
00:04<mwalling>put it this way... (no critisim from the peanut gallery) if i run 'links -dump
00:04<mwalling>' over our docs, and add up that, its about 3 megs
00:04<mwalling>if i compress the html files with LZMA, its 50 megs
00:05<mwalling>(where 'the html files' are exported from word docs

00:08<amitz>size per page.
00:10<jtsage>amitz- word is... ugh... 'liberal' with the inline style tags... to say the least. it bloats the html a wee bit.

01:06<armbruster>guys, for some reason, my linode can't get to to update.
01:06<armbruster>and i'm honestly confused. it's not down, my linode just can't connect to it.
01:06<armbruster>times out.
01:07<palintheus>where is your node?
01:07<Andrew>it works here.. could also be though that one of the addresses in the round robin are dodgy..

01:08<Andrew>Whats it resolving it?
01:10<Andrew>2nd it = to?

01:11<armbruster>oh, wait, it's back up.
01:11<linbot>palintheus: timed out
01:11<palintheus>probably a server in the round robin like Andrew suggested
01:11<Andrew>because here it resolves to jackass.* and that works. (I'm CA)
01:12<Andrew>Ca linode I mean
01:12<armbruster>okay, thanks.

01:12<palintheus>or used to be...
01:13<Andrew>that reminds me.. The default deb-src debian server in sources for the CA linnode doesn't work

02:36<ShakE>i need to know is there a way to work more faster
02:36<Andrew>Whats working slowly shake?
02:37<ShakE>the mysql database
02:37<ShakE>i want to optimize the speed of the mysql database, becouse i'm running a cronjob that takes 5minutes to complete
02:37<SelfishMan>optimize it and stop swapping
02:37<ShakE>and on my home pc it takes 30seconds
02:37<SelfishMan>disk thrashing will kill performance and large operations in mysql will be slow if you can't cache the whole dataset in ram
02:37<Andrew>yeah.. have you checked the ram usage?
02:37<ShakE>my homepc is windows based not a server, and it completes faster than the linode server
02:38<SelfishMan>ShakE: What does the IO graph show for peak during that time and what is the daily average?
02:39<ShakE>peak is 40
02:39<ShakE>on the IO graph
02:39<SelfishMan>40 or 40k?
02:40<ShakE>IO rate
02:40<SelfishMan>If the peak is only 40 then you have a really poorly designed query or poorly designed tables
02:40<SelfishMan>(or both)
02:40<ShakE>they are really poor i know that
02:41<SelfishMan>then the issue isn't really cpu
02:41<ShakE>the problem is that they take less time on my heavy loaded windows PC than the linode server...and i was thinking if there is a way to optimize it
02:42<SelfishMan>if the host load shows as idle or low then it isn't a host performance problem
02:42<SelfishMan>I guess it is possible that someone else is hitting the IO hard but host load will usually increase when that happens
02:43<ShakE>ok thanks

02:47<Keith-BlindUser>I wonder how difficult it would be for someone to generate a nice HTML page with a simpol formatted table showing the daily graphs of Linode throug hthe API? The graphs are completely inaccessible to screen readers for the blind/visually impared.
02:49<Andrew>Another thing I'd be interested in, is the popularity of different distro's that are active on linode
02:49<amitz>Keith-BlindUser: can you recommend a good introduction on accessibility compatible HTML?
02:49<Keith-BlindUser>I can tell you this much.
02:50<Keith-BlindUser>Most of Linodes stuff uses section headers, tables, etc. The control pannel app is quite useful. I.e. the button "boot" shutwodn, etc, are labled form conrols. The checkboxes are labled also. The main table that shows your total network transfer is fine. Same with sign-up pages etc.
02:51<Keith-BlindUser>But what happens on any of the graphs, is that I'll get something like: "Graphic CPU graph" from the screen reader. It's not labled, not presented in a table where it shows the information in collems/ros etc, or something.
02:51<Keith-BlindUser>I asked Linode support a while back. They've suggested that someone might be able to develop something through the new Linode API.
02:52<aaronpk>do you have any examples of graphs that are easily interpreted auditorily? i have no idea what that would look like
02:52<Keith-BlindUser>But the point is that to render anything like this properly for a screen reader, either the graphics need to be labled with alt-tag text explaining in more detail what the CPU graph is (with a percentage such as 5% or someting) or...not sure. It really depends.
02:53<Keith-BlindUser>Well, have you ever seen a graphic with an alt-tag lable for it?
02:53<Keith-BlindUser>For instance,
02:55-!-jhford [] has quit [Quit: oops]
02:55<Keith-BlindUser>On one assistive tech page, there are some graphics that show up to the screen reader s asomthing like: "Decrease Text Siz"
02:55<Keith-BlindUser>erm size
02:55-!-jhford [] has joined #linode
02:55<Keith-BlindUser>The code for some of these graphics:
02:56<Keith-BlindUser>Then, after that
02:57<Keith-BlindUser>our alt-tag that explains what a graphic loks like:
02:57-!-megatron27 [~firdaus@] has joined #linode
02:58<Keith-BlindUser>ALT="Decrease Text Size"></SPAN> <SPAN onClick="fontSize('up');" STYLE="center; cursor: pointer;"><IMG SRC="
02:58<amitz>Keith-BlindUser: maybe we can just output list of numbers at every point of time, should be easy. Or I'm thinking of streaming sound that represents the graph. High sound means higher position.
02:59<Keith-BlindUser>The point is that the alt-tag explains in more detail to us what the Graphic is. Problem though is that simply explaining that we're viewing a network graphic or something isn't useful. It would more useful to present the actual percentages. I am suggesting a simpol table layout over graphics, simply because a nicely organized tabl
03:00<Keith-BlindUser>table would be a better idea. You could have something like: get an idea, take a look at the sign-up table on where it says "Select your plan" see how that source code was written. That able for instance, is quite accessible.
03:00<bliblok>The text line would probably help. "CPU Pct Max: 3.24% Avg:1.17% Last:0.94%" (Data from my linode)
03:00<aaronpk>Keith-BlindUser: is it easier to interpret a list of numbers, or is changing the pitch or volume more indicative of a graph?
03:00<Keith-BlindUser>Usually a list of numbers. For instance.
03:01<Keith-BlindUser>To show us the percentage of the CPU usage graph
03:01<Keith-BlindUser>You could do a list with several bullited items such as:
03:01<Keith-BlindUser>Maybe it starts with 5%.
03:01<Keith-BlindUser>So you put that there.
03:01<Keith-BlindUser>Then you keep going.
03:02<Keith-BlindUser>The screen-reader is smart enough to put the list into the virtual buffer that it uses, (we're not actually) using a cursor as such, more like a virtual cursor to read PDF/HTML/etc.
03:03<Keith-BlindUser>Picture a virtual buffer, that once the page is downloaded brings the page into focuss, performs decolonization of the page, goes and presents it to us in a nice simpol layout. When we encounter a list, it usually says "List of X items"
03:04<Keith-BlindUser>But the point is
03:04-!-digitaljhelms [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
03:04<Keith-BlindUser>Those things usually work uot. If you give a table to us with 9 collums and X rows we'll here that first.
03:04<Keith-BlindUser>We also have control with screen readers on if we want to see the layout as it is on the screen or have the "simpol layout" as well.
03:05-!-supine [] has quit [Quit: Leaving.]
03:05<Keith-BlindUser>Just some ideas.
03:06<Keith-BlindUser>As long as you code your HTML properly, taking care that you think about alt-tagging your images, etc, rather than not labeling them, labeling form feeleds with meanful names, offering access keys for instance:
03:06<Keith-BlindUser>It would be smart to label a search box with Alt+S (or if using firefox the convention is different) but the point is you'd do that. You'd label the box with search, then the access key. So we'd hear, "Search. Alt+S" or whatever. Then told it's an edit box by "edit"
03:08<Keith-BlindUser>One nice thing Chris could do though in the control pannel is once a checkbox is highlighted in the Linode control pannel for a VM, to assign access keys: "If the reboot button has that state, he'd show alt+R or alt-shift-r for firefox. The access key would also (if done right) click on that button as well.
03:08<Keith-BlindUser>So one need only do an alt+R and the machine's rebot button is pressed because a clcik was issued automatically.
03:08<Keith-BlindUser>erm click
03:09<Keith-BlindUser>Just some useful suggestions, none of witch should be hard, especially giving us access keys. I'm sure you all know what access keys are, I.e. Control-N opens a new document in Word/notepad whatever...etc. Well, there present on webpages as well.
03:10<Keith-BlindUser>For example, if any of you have ever taken a look at Gmail's basic HTML page, you'll notice that alt+C or alt-shift-C (and the access key will be different) depending on browser used at the time, moves to the compose link on the Gmail pages.
03:10<Keith-BlindUser>A nicer step though on ther epart for instance would be to do a click however, so that we don't have to press the enter key to do the same thing on that link.
03:10<chequers>didn't consider writing this into an email Keith-BlindUser?
03:11<Keith-BlindUser>I would suggest virtualizing a Windows machine on your PCs at home, seeing if you cen get sound, and trying a demo of Window-Eyes or JAWS for Windows...or even NVDA with firefox. That would really be the best way to test results.
03:12<Keith-BlindUser>Not really.
03:12<amitz>Keith-BlindUser: yeah, all you have typed will be lost if you don't document it. Maybe as an email or a webpage.
03:12<Keith-BlindUser>I can easily give people the important parts with this IRC log though.
03:12<Keith-BlindUser>So either way.

03:12-!-_Kyhwan3 [kvirc@2001:4428:20d::4] has joined #linode
03:13<Keith-BlindUser>Actually it's logged.
03:13<Keith-BlindUser>My IRC client logs all my stuff.
03:13<Keith-BlindUser>So I can easily document/display on a webpage.
03:13<Keith-BlindUser>And because it documents in plain-text, I can just well...:)
03:14<amitz>Keith-BlindUser: so maybe you put all these thought in a webpage? And change it as necessary.
03:14<Keith-BlindUser>Good ideas.
03:15*Keith-BlindUser uses a Linode to run his website. Maybe I'll upload there.
03:15<Keith-BlindUser>I find Linode to be quite's pretty nice..even without access keys.
03:15<Keith-BlindUser>I was wondering something though about Linode.
03:15<Andrew>linode should get something like Dell ideastorm
03:16<Andrew>not that it needs it
03:16<amitz>Keith-BlindUser: let's just hope linode has a client that force linode to provide accessibility :-)
03:16<Keith-BlindUser>If you do a shutdown through the control pannel, does the Linode get a chance to save data properly? Also, if you do a shutdown from within the OS itself, will the shutdown watchdog detect this as something and rreboot it? I've been curious as to the best way to reboot/shutdown etc.
03:16<Keith-BlindUser>I have been using the control pannel for a while. But it'd be nice to issue these commands from the OS.
03:16<Keith-BlindUser>Other than booting it up again. :)
03:17<amitz>you can do booting from OS.
03:17<Keith-BlindUser>And if you do a shutdown from within the OS it'll do the same thing as the shutdown button on Linode's LPM. Right?
03:18*Keith-BlindUser is curious what happens if someone is logged into there Linode via SSH at the time the shutdown button in LPM is used.
03:18<Keith-BlindUser>Does that dstill doa "broadcast message from root"
03:18<chequers>shutdown from within the OS causes lassie to try and boot your OS again
03:18<Keith-BlindUser>I see.
03:19<Keith-BlindUser>I also assume you don't get billed for a shutdown server, right?
03:19<Keith-BlindUser>So if you're reconfiguring it, etc...transfering data, you don't get billed for the time it's not active. I.e. suppose you shutdown your server to do stuff for one month out of that billing cycle.
03:20-!-massimo [] has joined #linode
03:21<chequers>you do get billed
03:21<chequers>it's available for use
03:21<Keith-BlindUser>Makes sense.
03:21*Keith-BlindUser moans.
03:22<Keith-BlindUser>Wonder what the high-end Linode offers? Bet it's just you with noone on it.
03:22<Keith-BlindUser>the $700 thing
03:22<Keith-BlindUser>That main table I mentioned on the homepage needs to be updated.
03:22<Keith-BlindUser>Everything is listed but he kingsized plans. One must sign up to see those.
03:26<chequers>presumably because the uptake is so low it would reduce profit putting them on the front page :P
03:26<Keith-BlindUser>Linode is amazing.
03:27*Keith-BlindUser notes that Linode is pretty nice even at the lowest-end plan
03:27*Keith-BlindUser currently runs Gentoo and all that stuff on that plan..although I'd like omre disk space but can't aford it currently..
03:28<Keith-BlindUser>While having full root aaccess is nice, I have taken it upon myself for Linode security to disable that access by SSH.
03:28<Keith-BlindUser>I don't want anyone in the world able to use the root user account with SSH access.
03:28*Keith-BlindUser forces all users (if they have the proper permissions) or suggests, that sudo is used.
03:29*Keith-BlindUser uses that a lot.
03:29<Keith-BlindUser>I attempted locking the root account once, found it broke everything.

09:32<Daevien>as stated above, "it doesn't work" is not an answer that we can really help with solving. would you go to the doctor and say I don't feel well. and then refuse to talk or do anything except demand a cure?
09:33<Huitzilopochtli>Daevien: true. I'm too tired right now to explain it all. sorry to bother you. as supine noticed, I have painfully described every step of my problem and attempted solutions in this channel, a few days ago.
09:33<amitz>HoopyCat: I thought the lack of "instead" may sound sarcastic :-)
09:34<mwalling>Huitzilopochtli: the collection of people (and knowlege they posess) in this channel is an ever-changing set.
09:34<Daevien>nginx is a solution that should function fairly easily if all the ips can talk to each other
09:35<@jed>nginx can, indeed, do some mind-blowing stuff
09:36<HoopyCat>Huitzilopochtli: that's usually a sign that you might have better luck in a more specific channel related to LVS, or else it's time to try a more commonly-used solution. (or a forum post might be in order; IRC is quite real-time, so anything that happened more than 18 minutes ago has already scrolled off my screen)
09:36<Huitzilopochtli>i think it's a linode specific problem, but maybe LVS and Xen and linode just wont fit my needs. ill try nginx
09:37<HoopyCat>Huitzilopochtli: you're using a distro/custom kernel via pv_grub, right?
09:39<waldo_>that's a fairly strong claim, Huitzilopochtli. I suspect you will find people using linode to do what you are describing.

09:47<checkers>seems to be a common myth, but I can't see why

13:31<Eman>if using centos, this site is incredibly useful:
13:31<Daevien>exim, postfix, sendmail, etc
13:32<Daevien>if you are looking for other stuff besides just email, then citadel as well as the ones wastrel gave
13:32<prasanth>exim, postfix, sendmail etc are MTAs rt?
13:32*path uses postfix and dovecot
13:32<path>just using imap
13:32<wastrel>postfix and dovecot are good yes
13:33<path>for domains i host for other people, i sign them up for google apps and let them manage their own thing
13:33<prasanth>but they dont allow me to ask my employees to sign in and check their mail rt?
13:33<Daevien>prasanth, i'm a bit confused on what you want, thats why i said them.. do you just want a mail server? or do you want everything else? you said you wanted open source alternative to google apps but then said mail
13:33<Eman>dovecot is a pop3/imap server
13:33<prasanth>i need just mail
13:33<path>your employees would need to run thunderbird and set it to check for mail every couple minutes
13:34<prasanth>something like squirelmail will do okay.
13:34<path>or outlook, or
13:34<mwalling>what is "mail rt"?
13:34<path>realtime i think
13:34<mwalling>path: or is it request tracker
13:34<Daevien>or shorthand for right
13:34<mwalling>smtp is not reailtime
13:34<prasanth>i want them to be updated pretty much the way gmail updates the thing and shows new mail has come
13:35<Daevien>for what you want prasanth, you'd want something like postfix + dovecot + squirrelmail + webserver of some kind (suggest nginx or lighttpd if that's all you are goign to do on the machine, keep it's resources lower)

13:57<Rushi>hi guyz, i made a newbie mistake and launched a 64 bit ubuntu, apparently it is resource intensive and i wanted to revert back to 32 bit or xubuntu if possible but i don't want lose all my configurations and it possible?
13:59<@tychoish>you can save configuration files, and re-upload them
13:59<Rushi>i've done performance tuning with memcache, eaccelerator, and mysql query cache as well... i don't want to lose this stuff and go back

14:00<Rushi>my firewall settings and the works startup programs etc...
14:00<@tychoish>all of the configuration/tuning that you've done you can save, but you'll need to redownload and reinstall all of the applications
14:00<@tychoish>you should be able to download the iptables rules, and so forth
14:00<@tychoish>but all the binaries have to be recompiled for the different architecture...
14:02<Rushi>any links you might suggest for saving the configurations and mysql data onto my local maching and relaunching it?
14:02<Rushi>i have drupal installed and it is a pain reinstalling it from scratch...

14:04<@tychoish>there's a way to export and import data from a mysql database from the command line, but I don't know what it is off the top of my head
14:04-!-nessenj [] has joined #linode
14:04<@tychoish>there might also be a way to do that from within drupal

14:05<@tychoish>SelfishMan & jtsage thanks, you guys rock
14:05<Rushi>ok cool
14:05<SelfishMan>oddly enough I think those are the actual credentials to the urmom jokes db
14:06<@tychoish>I mess around with mysql infrequently enough that I'm always googling for the commands when I need them
14:07<Rushi>i guess there's no easy way thnks
14:07<SelfishMan>Rushi: how easy do you want it?
14:08<@tychoish>the mysqldump, Rushi is what I was thinking of
14:09<Rushi>it's kind of easy for computer techies but i would have to google all the things i installed and look for their config files and im a bit slow on knowing this kind of stuff but thnks
14:10<Rushi>it took me a entir two days for the first time around that's how slow i was
14:10-!-ph_ [~ph^] has joined #linode
14:12<HoopyCat>we google all this crap too... we aren't necessarily faster or better, we just have a lot more experience using google and cleaning up after we break something :-)
14:12<@tychoish>the database is probably the big part. if you know what the files you changed are, and what you installed, it'll probably be a lot easier this time
14:13<@tychoish>Rushi, also, what HoopyCat said is pretty true. we all learn by doing, failing, redoing, and repeating. it's almost always faster the second and twenty second time through ;)
14:14<Rushi>i hope ur right thnks guyz

14:20<Rushi>will it be efficient to install xubuntu 64 bit version any performance improvements or that's slow as well?
14:21<@caker>why do you want 64 bit?
14:21<@caker>we really need to do a 32-vs-64 bit comparison page
14:23<SelfishMan>caker: It would be nice to seen a linode published version using all the same stuff on the same node
14:24<@caker>some benchmarks, a few memory usage comparisons, etc
14:24<SelfishMan>the actual performance metrics are the important part
14:26<brainproxy>so in postgres I create table A, and one of the columns has dt serial set as primary key; postgres happily creates the sequence object for me, very nice; if I later grant insert privs to another role, is there a way to automatically grant select, update on the related sequence object, or I have to run a second grant command explicitly?
14:26<brainproxy>i've reviewed the manual for GRANT and some other stuff in the docs, but perhaps I've missed something

14:55<ralxz>sorry lol, buggy irc much
14:55<ralxz>in the 'network' tab of my linode, excatly which IP address should I use for my domain configuration for WWW?
14:56<HoopyCat>ralxz: at a domain registrar? (like, if you have and you want to maintain it using the DNS Manager?)
14:56<ralxz>yes but i'm using linode's DNS manager
14:57<HoopyCat>ralxz: ah, so the domain's already there and you just need to know the IP address for the A record. it'd be the eth0 IP.
14:57<ralxz>i just don't want to re-create my domain zone because it has lots of google apps email server settings in it

18:09<bd_>digitaljhelms: duplicity to s3 is a popular choice
18:10<digitaljhelms>i've heard the bandwidth on that is excessive though; but, i guess bandwidth is going to be an issue regardless of the data store and method, since it won't be a backup that is internal to linode
18:10<bd_>digitaljhelms: rsync to an external server works too
18:11<bd_>what I'm doing right now is using an (admittedly hacky) script to rsync off to a EBS drive in amazon's EC2
18:12<@tychoish>digitaljhelms: I've also heard of people using
18:12<nessenj>im using now on 2 linodes and it works pretty well so far
18:13<digitaljhelms>bd_: rsync was my first thought (actually unison, which I believe uses some of rsync within) and i'm familiar with it
18:14<@tychoish>rsync is crazy brilliant. Unison is windows-centric, right? and I'm not sure if there's shared code, but it is very similar conceptually
18:14<digitaljhelms>nessenj: is it easy to restore
18:14<bd_>unison is very different from rsync
18:14<bd_>the most annoying thing about it being that it has no protocol compatibility across releases.
18:14<bd_>at all.
18:14<nessenj>dunno, thank goodness i havent had to try yet :)
18:14<BarkerJr>linode backup is onsite, so it'll never be useful as a data backup
18:14<bd_>tychoish: and no, not windows-centric afaik
18:15<digitaljhelms>unison *is* very different, but I believe that unison utilizes rsync to an extent within it's core
18:15<digitaljhelms>tychoish: no, unison is entirely cross-platform
18:15<bd_> <-- the script I used, hacked together in the space of about two hours a year ago, so don't mind the hacks :)
18:16<bd_>you'll need to manually create an EBS volume, set up dm-crypt, create a filesystem in the dm-crypted volume, and create a backup and tmp directory in it
18:16<bd_>also create a /srv/k/root locally
18:17<digitaljhelms>BarkerJr: really? i dunno about that statement... if that's the consensus, why would they even build/offer it?
18:17<bd_>digitaljhelms: an onside backup is useless if the datacenter is hit by a meteor or something
18:18<mwalling>digitaljhelms: that sounds pretty trollish to me
18:18<mwalling>digitaljhelms: (him, not you)
18:18<digitaljhelms>bd_: correct, but so what you're saying is, each data center will provide backups onsite only??
18:18<bd_>digitaljhelms: currently yes
18:18<digitaljhelms>mwalling: yes, i agree
18:18<bd_>I've heard they're considering offsite backups as a value-add later
18:18<bd_>or well, an add-on thing
18:18<bd_>or whatever you want to call it
18:19<mwalling>hell, i dont even know if i'm going to shell out the $5
18:19<digitaljhelms>bd_: oh, yikes! i would think they would institute a policy where all backups are done not only locally, but distributed across all other data centers
18:19<mwalling>or 7.50 or something
18:19<bd_>digitaljhelms: that requires a lot of bandwidth :)
18:19-!-F2 [~lucifred@] has quit [Quit: NO CARRIER]
18:19<digitaljhelms>bd_: if it's paid for, who cares...
18:19<bd_>bandwidth _and_ storage
18:19<mwalling>remember, linode has no less then a gagillion linodes in production
18:20<bd_>that said, linode's never had a datacenter be hit by a meteor
18:20<BarkerJr>digitaljhelms: it's really a system backup, not data
18:20<mwalling>bd_: you did it
18:20<bd_>mwalling: hm?
18:20<mwalling>bd_: stop saying what they havent had happen
18:20<@tychoish>gagillion+, for the record
18:20<mwalling>tychoish: "no less then"
18:20<BarkerJr>insurance against your own corruption
18:20<digitaljhelms>bd_: like i said, this is a large application by the RNC/GOP -- you think i'm going to tell them that we put all eggs in one basket, or that $100/mo was too high when considering the ability to backup/restore their data
18:21<bd_>digitaljhelms: *shrug* one option would just be to get another VPS and rsync to it
18:21<digitaljhelms>bd_: think that's what i'm going to do
18:21<BarkerJr>but the easy way to backup is to get a second linode and rsync data, and setup mysql replication
18:21<bd_>if you're going to do that putting the backup target at a different provider's a good idea too
18:21<digitaljhelms>BarkerJr: not using MySQL
18:21<BarkerJr>mysql replication will be instantanious, and rsync is as frequent as you want
18:22<digitaljhelms>BarkerJr: PostgreSQL FTW
18:22<BarkerJr>I'm sure any good dbms supports replication
18:22<BarkerJr>I rsync minutely
18:22<digitaljhelms>bd_: I agree; perhaps a new linode in a different data center, with a custom backup routine, and also an S3 backup on it's own schedule as well
18:22<@tychoish>that works
18:23<@tychoish> also has a (we'll put your data in more than one data center option
18:23<bd_>digitaljhelms: If you're going to get a second VPS, having provider redundancy isn't a bad idea :)
18:23<bd_>tychoish: always seemed a bit expensive to me... :/
18:23<silverblade>meh, i just back up to my home pc.
18:23<mwalling>but they have a little birdie!
18:24<@tychoish>I think the vs. s3 decision depends very much on your usecase
18:24<mwalling>i like bd_'s rsync->EBS method
18:25<@caker> loses file ownership and permissions, afaik
18:25<silverblade>rsync tends to do that if you're rsyncing to a machine but dont have root access to the dest
18:26<digitaljhelms>mwalling: i do as well, but i'm not installing ruby, so it's out
18:26<silverblade>i ended up using find and a bunch of other things to spit out a "rebuild file permissions / ownership" script
18:26<mwalling>digitaljhelms: just because bd_ wrote a ruby script doesnt mean ruby is the only way to do it
18:26<digitaljhelms>mwalling: however, i can rewrite it in python
18:26<bd_>digitaljhelms: the principle should be usable with other languages. I just did it in ruby because that was the first EC2 interface library I found :)
18:26<digitaljhelms>mwalling: or find one that was open sourced
18:28<mwalling>the concept is pretty much boot ec2, start rsync, shutdown ec2, isnt it?
18:28<digitaljhelms>bd_: oh, i'm not hating; ruby, python, java, whatever -- get shit done and move on; i'm just saying that i'm not installing ruby on these production machines just for a backup, i'm sure there's a python script that'll do the same thing (and this is a full python setup) or i can write one ;)
18:29<digitaljhelms>i've worked with ec2 in python in the past anyway
18:29<digitaljhelms>caker: is the backup offering being worked on actively?

18:40<mwalling>k good
18:40<mwalling>i was trying to explain something a half hour ago and ended up erasing the white board 5 times
18:40<wastrel>whiteboard eh
18:40<@tychoish>I suspect there's similarity, but I don't think they're likely using it in the same way folks like us might use it
18:40<wastrel>my boss wants to somehow digitize the whiteboards
18:41<mwalling>wastrel: waste of time
18:41<wastrel>i think it's a crazy waste of time and money
18:41<silverblade>get a pen and write 1 0 1 0 1 1 0 0 1 0 1 1 0 0 on it
18:41<Pryon>wastrel: in what way? printouts from whiteboards is old tech
18:41<wastrel>yes! that's that i'm saying!
18:41<silverblade>then tell him it is digitized
18:41<wastrel>because we already have whiteboards installed
18:41<mwalling>just get a web cam and point it at the board
18:41<mwalling>not kidding...
18:41<wastrel>well my suggestion was digital cameras and just take snapshots
18:41<wastrel>but yes that would be just fine
18:42<Pryon>I do that at home all the time (pictures of the [way too small] whiteboard before erasing)
18:42<wastrel>yes that's perfectly reasonable
18:42<mwalling>each conference room has a dedicated machine, that handles lighting, projection, sound, etc... so i just took a p-card to target and got some webcams, mounted them to the projector, and vollia
18:42<wastrel>he seems to want some kind of fancy high tech digital whiteboard thing. star trek magic or something
18:42<mwalling>they're buggy
18:43<mwalling>at least the ones we have in the "Executive conference center"
18:43<digitaljhelms>just realized that linode handles dns hosting/management #facepalm so i'm going to try it out; does the soa email need to be entered with dot notation or will an @ suffice?
18:43<mwalling>digitaljhelms: @, i think the manager rewrites it
18:43<silverblade>I tried taking digital pictures of a whiteboard once, of some stuff I was working on.
18:43<silverblade>I ended up with this:
18:43<digitaljhelms>thanks; it took an @ but i didn't know if that's what it was looking for
18:44<Pryon>Speaking of ST and whiteboards - I was watching an episode and Chekov was giving some sort of lame-ass impromptu presentation and he had to physically walk up to the screen to point at stuff. I was thinking "yay, 23rd century technology."

18:57<BarkerJr>why can't a cname point to a cname?
18:58<HoopyCat>BarkerJr: i don't believe it can't
18:58<bd_>CNAME = 'canonical name'. That is, it's saying the true name of A is at B. If B isn't canonical, then the first CNAME is basically lying.
18:58<straterra>like urmom when she was she wasn't all over used
18:58<HoopyCat>digitaljhelms: alas, if you're leaving the hostname blank, you probably already have a SOA and a couple NSes there..
18:59<BarkerJr>is blank the same as @ ?
18:59<digitaljhelms>no, @ is a wildcard you can point a cname
18:59<digitaljhelms>and that's only with some dns hosts
19:00<BarkerJr>I've never seen @ as a cname... is that common?
19:00<digitaljhelms>a blank alias with only an ip assigned will let a domain without a prefix resolve to that ip
19:00<digitaljhelms>Barker: the @ isn't the cname value, it's the value of the alias that cname entry resolves to
19:01<HoopyCat>we're throwing a lot of slang around here; i'm declaring that all further discussion on this matter use either RFC terminology or BIND zonefile syntax, for i am getting confused about wtf we're talking about here
19:01<BarkerJr>I'm confused :)
19:02<digitaljhelms>HoopyCat: hahaha
19:02<digitaljhelms>i have 3 aliases for this domain (one for each linode in the cluster), and i have a cname for "www" resolving to one of those aliases, and various other cname entires as well, but it sucks to have a blank alias with an ip that one of the other aliases is already defined as... seems weird, i dunno..
19:02<HoopyCat>wait, which part is the hoohah?!
19:02<BarkerJr>@ IN CNAME www
19:02<BarkerJr>is that valid?
19:02<HoopyCat>BarkerJr: not if there's other records on @
19:02<BarkerJr>there's SOA and NS, right?
19:03<HoopyCat>digitaljhelms: CNAMEs suck. use A records, and if you have to change them, it's a couple nested for loops with :-)
19:03<HoopyCat>BarkerJr: yup

19:08<BarkerJr>do I have bind miscongigured?
19:08<@jed>BarkerJr: using two lookups
19:08<@jed>unless BIND is also returning it in "Additional"
19:08<@jed>(which, btw, end clients will not use)
19:08<BarkerJr>dig +trace only shows one lookup
19:09<bd_>jed: recursive resolvers can't use additional records?
19:09<bd_>surely they can, or they'd be unable to use glue

19:09<@jed>bd_: things like firefox won't use additional
19:09<HoopyCat>oh shiiiii
19:10<@jed>is what I meant there
19:10<BarkerJr>I would expect pessimism about additional, cause it's prone to dns poisoning
19:10<mwalling>doesnt firefox and friends just use the OS's resolver library?
19:11<@jed>that's what I mean, glibc's gethostbyname() will just look for Response records
19:11<@jed>firefox actually does *not* repeat *not* use the system resolver

21:38<tjr>Hello all
21:40<tjr>as anyone seen any issues with syslogng hogging cpu? I''m trying to figure out why it's at 20% when idle
21:40<bob2>how's your io-wait?
21:41<tjr>I have no idea, I'll start googling =)
21:41<HoopyCat>vmstat 1 <--- faster than googling for finding I/O wait :-)
21:42<bob2>man, linode should add collectd to the base installs
21:43<HoopyCat>tjr: huh.
21:43<guinea-pig>what's collectd?
21:43<HoopyCat>tjr: no wait, very little user CPU, but a wonk of system CPU...
21:44<HoopyCat>tjr: if it makes you feel better, my syslog-ng is averaging 1 second of CPU per day :-)
21:44*guinea-pig would argue against adding collectd to base installs.
21:44<bob2>guinea-pig: very easy to use monitoring tool
21:44<HoopyCat>bob2: apt-get install collectd # done
21:45<tjr> mine was at 100%. I turned off remote logging and it went to 20%. trying to figure out why it's even at that...

21:45<HoopyCat>tjr: i'm wondering if it's got itself in some kind of loop or something

21:47<HoopyCat>tjr: if you wish, pastebin your conf and i'll, at the very least, take a look and see if there's something blatantly weird. (i'm a syslog-ng noob, alas, but 1. a second set of eyeballs sometimes helps, and 2. i'm always interested to see how other people config their stuff :-)
