00:03<amitz>woah, 20mbps for US$350..
00:04<amitz>ah, with 60GB quota, bummer
00:04<bd_>you do realize that linode gives you 50mbps with a 200GB quota for US$19.95... :)
00:05<bd_>which works out to 3.5TB for US$350/mo
00:05<bd_>(and the 50mbps is of course a liftable soft cap...)
00:06<amitz>bd_: what's missing with linode is the ability to walk down the DC, plug an external storage, and copy all to it.
00:07<amitz>btw, that's for residential connection.
00:07<bob2>amitz: I get 18mbit/s on my dsl :)
00:07*amitz slaps bob2, twice!
00:08<amitz>how much do you pay for that?
00:09<amitz>that is like almost 3 times cheaper!
00:11<amitz>heh, anyway I don't think I can afford it even if it's AU120 :-p. 75GB/month is hmm.. reasonable.
00:11<bob2>50GB is a much more reasonable $AU80/month
00:12<amitz>oh, non-linear and it depends on quota!
00:12<bob2>I think theory is that people who are on the higher plans are more likely to use almost all of it
00:13<bob2>whereas people on 50GB are less likely to
00:13<@array>bob2: is the bandwidth split up into off/on peak?
00:13<bob2>array: no
00:13<amitz>I used to think a way to get over the quota. Put a server in a DC, install wifi router on the box, buy a house near the DC, then connect wireless to that server ;-)
00:13<bob2>(internode doesn't do the peak thing on any of their plans)
00:14<@array>bob2: ah nice, internode! I'm currently with a local provider, but I had been looking to switch over internode or westnet
00:14<bob2>internode are excellent
00:15<amitz>here, the server bandwidth cost is not dependent on quota. It depends on guaranteed bandwidth you subscribe to.
00:15<tonyyarusso>amitz: $350 a MONTH?
00:16<amitz>tonyyarusso: yeah. Too far from US :-p.
00:16<tonyyarusso>Note to self: avoid Australia
00:16<bob2>tonyyarusso: that's not au
00:16<tonyyarusso>oh dear, where?
00:16-!-daMaestro [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:17<amitz>oh yeah, actualy closer to US than AU. Indonesia.
00:17<ajmitch_>and I thought NZ prices were bad...
00:17<tonyyarusso>I think we pay like $40/mo for 7Mbps with a 250GB cap.
00:17<tonyyarusso>For $100/mo we could get 100Mbps
00:18<tonyyarusso>maybe $150, don't remember
00:18<bob2>fibre and cable(tv) are basically undeployed in australia
00:18<amitz>US$48 gives me a (guaranteed in practice) 512kbps unlimited.

00:32<Trystan>and ftth is being rolled out in tas as a test before being rolled out to 98% of Australians
00:32<bob2>(the latter is not by internode)
00:32<Trystan>their current ADSL network is majority not themself either
00:33<Trystan>but they still offer the product
00:33<Trystan>so while its not being done at a network level, they will have a foot in it retail most likely

00:34<encode>internode are pretty awesome... my parent's place uses them
00:35<Trystan>i use them, gotten a better ping time to US servers through them than any other ISP i have been with so far
00:35-!-blognewb [~blognewb@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:35<encode>i use iinet at home, only because internode didn't have a dslam at the exchange when i moved in
00:36<Trystan>i dont have a choice where i live for a cheaper dslam
00:36<Trystan>so have to use telstra wholesale
00:36<Trystan>but internode's access to TW adsl2+ means i can get it at a decent price atleast
00:37<Trystan>parents use westnet, I keep them on that for if something happens with node and i need net access :D
00:38<Trystan>westnet free pipe used to be awesome :(

01:26<rogi_>Needs to be on the label. Not recommended at certain times, depending on location.
01:27<rogi_>array: Bandwidth for linodes under the same account is pooled (right?), does that apply even if the 'nodes are in different dc's?
01:31<@array>rogi_: sure does, bandwidth is aggregated across all Linodes regardless of what DC they are in
01:32<rogi_>array: aha, ok, thanks. Can I have that in writing. :)
01:32<Trystan>you.. just did :P

04:49<megatron27>amitz, need to force myself to code dude
04:50<amitz>okay, I thought you might need some welcoming distractions. No need to response :-)
04:50<megatron27>so how is life
04:51<megatron27>I wonder, are earthquakes season because you guys have a had a lot recently
04:54<amitz>it's more like one large earthquake might destablized the earth crust of that region, which can only be stabilized by another earthquake, or so I heard.
04:55<megatron27>my theory is that there's an earthquake each time Inul dances :D
04:55<amitz>or by many smaller earthquakes. Because another large earthquake might make the adjustment to extreme that you need another earthquake.
04:55<amitz>she is fat now, and rich ;-)
04:56<megatron27>explains it
04:57<amitz>She invest her income wisely after she got rich with her drilling move. Now she doesnt have to drill anymore thus not burning much fat thus fatter :-p
04:57<megatron27>but come on, what kind of man is turned on by an old lady gyrating like that
04:57<amitz>do you follow her enough about her conflict with the founder of dangdut?
04:58<megatron27>I hate dangdut
04:58<amitz>well, I must say she gyrates well. Not the best it seems but well enough ;-)
04:58<amitz>with good enough body to boot.
04:59<megatron27>Julia Estelle is way better
04:59<megatron27>what's the name of her song
04:59<amitz>uh, Julia Estelle has no body. She is flat like a board.
04:59<megatron27>there's more to a woman that how she looks you shallow chauvinist pig!
04:59<amitz>dude, I really want to continue this but wife is calling, gtg.

06:06<bryen>Sure would be nice if the Linode DNS Manager included a drop-down menu for initial setup to give us a chance to indicate which node we want the domain to point to. I always forget and have to go back in and change the IP address (something I also never seem to memorize)
06:06<bob2>it does
06:07<bob2>I guess it should show the linode name in brackets after each IP

07:32<bryen>okay, so... any DNS experts here? I've set up a new domain but the browser is pointing it in all the wrong places, although pinging it resolves to the proper IP address. It's been over an hour since I set up the domain.
07:33<bryen>if I enter, it points to the wrong node, and if I enter it points to the "construction page" offered by Network Solutions
07:33<bob2>mention the actual name
07:34<rainman_>bryen, your browser may well have a dns cache too
07:34<KingTarquin>bryen, Are you using your ISP's default DNS settings? If so, it could take a while. (Some ISP's don't propagate as quick as others).
07:34<rainman_>KingTarquin, from the same machine, ping resolves it ok, so it can't be the ISP resolver
07:34<bryen>rainman_: I opened up another browser (opera) that hadn't ever gone to and it had the same problems
07:34*KingTarquin goes back to idling.
07:35<rainman_>KingTarquin, nofi :)
07:35<DephNet[Paul]>bryen, domain?
07:35<bob2>if it is windows, reboot
07:35<bob2>it sure resolves ok
07:36-!-sefz [] has joined #linode
07:36<sefz>hi everybody
07:36<@irgeek>Yup. That looks like a local cache issue.

07:38<bryen>then it's just me :-) That's not a terribly bad thing
07:38<sefz>what plan is best suitable for my needs? (wordpress blog with 25k uniques/day, with several peaks during evening (500 users simultanous connections) ?
07:38-!-kyhwana [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
07:39<amitz>so many wordpress users, must take a look some time..
07:40<@irgeek>sefz: Too many variables to give you an answer, really. You can start low - upgrading is easy.
07:40*bryen wants to be friends with sefz and figure out how he gets that much traffic on his blog (or her blog)
07:40<@irgeek>bryen: Try porn.
07:40-!-Guest1614 is now known as meff
07:40<bryen>irgeek: I try it all the time. :-)
07:41-!-meff is now known as Guest1623
07:41<amitz>bryen: try the more universal porn
07:41*bryen is afraid to ask
07:41<sefz>bryen, it's a movie streaming website
07:42<HoopyCat>bryen: the ttl on as it stands now (pointing, for me using opendns, at is at 1 day, so allow ~24 hours or so for the old IP to disappear
07:42<@irgeek>sefz: Are we going to get DMCA complaints?
07:43<sefz>no, i hope:)
07:43<bryen>HoopyCat: Should I change my TTL? or leave it at the default (which I guess is 1 day)
07:43<sefz>are you in the linode staff?
07:43<linbot>Users with ops are employees of Linode, and know what they're talking about. The rest of us are the ever-so-helpful(?) community.
07:44<bob2>bryen: too late
07:44<bob2>bryen: everyone has cached the ttl too
07:44<sefz>:) so i have another question: is technical support available to Linode customers? I mean, if for example, i want to setup Nginx instead of Apache, I have to do it alone?
07:45<bryen>bob2: Okay. Interesting though as I've never had this problem in the past and I've got about 10 domains set up so far.
07:45<bob2>sefz: you get a linux vps, doing anything inside it is your issue
07:45<bob2>sefz: that saidm has lots of useful docs
07:46<sefz>it's possible to have paid technical support? for m
07:46<@irgeek>We don't provide it, but you can always hire someone.
07:47-!-KingTarquin [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
07:47<bryen>sefz: Getting paid technical support inside your vps is pretty much the same as technical support for a real physical server. You hire the consultant that best fits your needs.
07:48<bryen>Since vps owners can pretty much do whatever they want under the sun (legally of course), it would be impossible for Linode to provide that level of support across the board.
07:48<HoopyCat>bryen: you probably didn't put the wrong IP in there at first for the other 10 domains :-) if you control your local DNS server or are using something like opendns, you can clear its cache; otherwise, hope someone trips over its power cord soon.
07:48<A-KO>bryen: tell that to my company, who hired a dba to support 2 lamp boxes :P
07:49<A-KO>because "oh he's a DBA with Oracle stuff--he must know linux"
07:49<sefz>is there anyone available for hire to do a nginx setup/optimization on a vps box? (enabling rewrites for wp-supercache)
07:49<bryen>A-KO: Name and phone number to call please?
07:49<amitz>A-KO: is the origin of your nick is "Project A-KO"?

07:50<bryen>well HoopyCat The problem for me whenever I set up a domain is that it always defaults to my first node and then I have to go back in and manually change it. I wish Linode DNS Manager gave me an option to point to the correct node as soon as I create a zone.
07:50<A-KO>it takes 15 minutes for linode's dns servers to refresh
07:50<A-KO>or w/e :P
07:50<A-KO>you have a little window of time to change it by hand
07:51<bryen>which I did, but somehow it didn't happen right this time. I guess when I set it upt it was just at the end of the systematic 15-minute period for Linode :-)
07:51<A-KO>eh, it's dns, it'll update eventually
07:51<A-KO>set low TTL values, most DNS servers should handle those properly
07:52<HoopyCat>bryen: you could duplicate an existing zone (or start blank), but at least when i add a master here, it's giving me a choice of IPs to template from...
07:52<amitz>bryen: there is a(n) alpha/beta version of DNS setting where you can just dump the DNS "definition". Just wait.
07:52<A-KO>only set long TTLs when you know DNS isn't going to change
07:53<bryen>does ttl only affect a records? Because ping has always resolved correctly.
07:53<A-KO>if it's resolving what's the problem?
07:54<bryen>A-KO: browser is resolving to the wrong places
07:54<A-KO>stop and restart dns client service in Windows?
07:54<@irgeek>bryen: When you add the zone there's a pull-down to select the IP you want the records to resolve to.
07:55<HoopyCat>bryen: hmm... is the browser resolving it incorrectly, or is there some cache in between that's resolving it wrong?
07:55<HoopyCat>bryen: (HTTP cache, not DNS cache)
07:56<bryen>irgeek: not on my end. I don't see any such pulldown.
07:56<@irgeek>You could also cook your own that works however you like -
07:56<@irgeek>bryen: How are you creating the zone?
07:56<A-KO>HoopyCat: if it's windows, stopping and restarting the dns client service often works, I've had to do that a few times to get things to work properly (since I vpn to my linode, sometimes the DNS servers it tries to get are wrong, occasionally)
07:57<A-KO>no idea why :P nslookup works fine,but browsing doesn't, etc.
07:57<@irgeek>It doesn't use the same library calls.
07:58<bryen>irgeek: Go to DNS Manager and "add a zone"
07:58<HoopyCat>bryen: i get after i type "" and select Master on the "add a new domain zone" screen
07:58<@irgeek>bryen: Look at the third image:
07:59<HoopyCat>err, blarfle.local
07:59<A-KO>:P .local, win :P
08:00<bryen>irgeek: ohhhh I see that now...
08:00<bryen>Sorry, Seriously, I am visually impaired and that was a little outside of my range of vision. Didn't realize there was something in that spot.
08:01<bryen>irgeek: Although I think you should include node names in that dropdown.

08:42<Yaakov>new_user: You can't become a problem for Linode or your "neighbors" who share the machine.
08:42<HoopyCat>new_user: the terms of service details the restrictions, but it boils down to "if it's legal and doesn't negatively impact others, it's generally OK"
08:42<Yaakov>new_user: Except for spam, any email is just fine.

08:45<@irgeek>new_user: We don't understand your question.
08:45<@irgeek>What do you mean by "flat formula"
08:45<HoopyCat>new_user: a flat formula as in "a given amount of data per month", as opposed to "95% percentile" or something like that?
08:45<Yaakov>new_user: There is a *protective* cap on outbound traffic which can be lifted at your request. It is generally not noticeable though.
08:46<new_user>ok i understand
08:46<rainman_>there's a limit in GBs though

09:14<HoopyCat>xrfang: does keeping something fairly active going in the ssh window (e.g. "vmstat 1") hold it up longer than it otherwise would? what sort of stuff is between your ssh client and the internet (NAT routers, firewalls, etc)?
09:15<xrfang>HoopyCat: I am using a home adsl with a router, I don't think there are any firewall, also, this happened today earlier in my office too
09:15<xrfang>the symptom is that ssh client (in gnome terminal) freezes
09:15<xrfang>and ping also does not reply, just the web is ok
09:16<xrfang>this some time gets recovered automatically, but just before I posted the question, 2 ssh window freezed completely,
09:16<xrfang>after I close the window and reconnect, the connection is ok...
09:16<@irgeek>Did they freeze at the same time?
09:16<xrfang>I wonder if the server is encountering high disk i/o load??
09:16<fapestniegd>Tauntaun now on preorder! + new stuff at ThinkGeek
09:16<xrfang>I guess so, but I am not sure, I went away doing other things,
09:17<@irgeek>And was this from a laptop you're taking with you. In other words are the connections from the same computer every time?
09:17<xrfang>if you mean home and office, they are 2 PCs
09:17<HoopyCat>xrfang: stateful firewalls will drop all knowledge of a flow after some amount of time, and if it's doing NAT, that would drop the mapping. generally speaking, disk I/O should have little to do with it (although that can be verified easily enough with "vmstat 1" as well :-)
09:18<xrfang>when it happened in office earlier today, it recovers quickly
09:18<xrfang>I am not sure... just will monitor this... I am now doing some testing with nginx on my local pc, so will keep an ssh client connected in background see what happens...
09:19<xrfang>thanks for your help... if this happens again I will return and ask.
09:20<HoopyCat>i generally ensure the server end has "TCPKeepAlive yes" in sshd_config and that usually does it, although my routine ssh traffic is tunneled over openvpn (which transports via udp and has its own keepalive behavior) so i haven't gone beyond that
09:20*HoopyCat fires up an ssh through not-the-vpn to see how that goes, then wanders off to make a sandwich

09:38<cmjb>whats the standard way to configure a second static IP on a linode thats on a different subnet / has a different gateway from the primary interface IP ?
09:39<orudie>is it illegal in the U.S. to have more than 1024 bit security key ?
09:39<HoopyCat>cmjb: just pick one gateway; both IPs are on the same physical subnet, so both gateways are equally valid.
09:39<amitz>orudie: shouldn't be.
09:40<HoopyCat>orudie: i don't believe so (to the point that i use keys longer than that)
09:40<rainman_>just specifying on bits is useless
09:40<amitz>rainman_: exactly
09:41<rainman_>the US used to be extremely strict in exporting encryption though
09:41<HoopyCat>orudie: there are restrictions on export, but i don't believe there are restrictions on use or development.
09:41<orudie>export ?
09:41<orudie>i don't get it
09:41<orudie>export of what
09:41<rainman_>code and algorithms
09:41<HoopyCat>orudie: export of encryption technology
09:42<rainman_>if microsoft builds superstrong encryption in IE, they can not ship that to iran
09:42<rainman_>though they might already not be allowed to
09:42<rainman_>there used to be a special export version of IE that only did 40-bit SSL
09:42<rainman_>and even europe could only have that one
09:42-!-Guest1632 is now known as meff
09:43<HoopyCat> is most applicable to most of the stuff i deal with
09:43<@irgeek>orudie: Encryption is classified as "munitions" so they have the same export restrictions.

09:48<HoopyCat>amitz: because you're outside the US and had to know that, because the US-based repos couldn't store software you needed :-)
09:48<amitz>HoopyCat: suppose to be that, but I thought my first encounter with debian was sarge (3.0) and I don't think they have that kind of separation...
09:49<HoopyCat>rainman_: yup, which is closer to where it probably needs to be, but it's still a constitutional quagmire.
09:49<amitz>oh wait, sarge is 3.1

09:55<Hareem-Haque>Got a quick question.. I wish to purchase 5 - 10 linodes and would like to set them up in a way so that i could queue up jobs onto them. I will be using ffmpeg & imagemagick.. I would like to know which application is the easiest to setup a job queue etc..
09:57<Hareem-Haque>how exactly to use it.?.. sorry im not a super duper pro programmer
09:59<@irgeek>It's a queue. You write something that sticks jobs into the queue and you write something else that checks for things in the queue and processes them.
09:59<Hareem-Haque>ok. Thank irgeek. Any other suggestions
10:01-!-RSully [] has joined #linode
10:01<HoopyCat>writing some sort of thing that collects jobs into a queue and then, when other things check for something in the queue, dispense one
10:02<HoopyCat>(which is probably how i'd do it, since i've never done it before and find it difficult to appreciate the cost of wheels without spending weeks in the garage with a geometry text and a band saw)

12:06<gary4gar>I have a problem with apache virtual host configration. Its a new centos server, I added new vhost as NameVirtualHost. now if I open that vhosted domain, I get contents of main domain.
12:06<gary4gar>I wonder why It does not give me contents of webroot of that vhost domain, which I am opening in the broswer
12:09<gary4gar>anyone has a clue why is this happening, its wierd
12:09<palintheus>restart apache?
12:10<adj>gary4gar: how did you set NameVirtualHost?
12:10<gary4gar>adj: Yes, I did
12:11<gary4gar>palintheus: restarting seems a good idea, let me try

14:05<rHn_>anyone here used bitmasks?
14:05<JshWright>rHn_: in what context?
14:05<rHn_>im trying to store 2 values in 1 int and then unpack them again
14:05-!-cpg [] has joined #linode
14:05<rHn_>a length and a type, length can be any value, type is either 1 or 2
14:05<tonyyarusso>rHn_: I messed with them once.
14:06<tonyyarusso>rHn_: Boolean values?
14:06<rHn_>int values
14:06<JshWright>yeah, bitmasking is only useful for boolean values
14:06<tonyyarusso>um, yeah
14:06<tonyyarusso>I suppose you could do it for other things if you know their size, but it seems silly.
14:07<rHn_>ok, so what is type was either true or false?
14:07<tonyyarusso>come again?
14:08<adj>what language are you using that requires you to use bitwise logic to optimally store such simple data types?
14:09<rHn_>say length is 100, and type is 1 or 0, can that be stored in a single int?
14:09-!-steffan [] has quit [Quit: ]
14:09-!-steffan [] has joined #linode
14:09<rHn_>and then unpacked
14:09<tonyyarusso>why would the length be 100?
14:09<adj>100 digits is a HUGE number
14:10<rHn_>length is an int
14:10<JshWright>length is an int with a value of 100?
14:10<adj>100 is much larger than an int
14:10<rHn_>as in length of a string
14:10-!-kyhwana [] has joined #linode
14:10<rHn_>oh man, im getting confused
14:10<adj>rHn_: you are confusing yourself by doing something that isnt really necessary
14:11<JshWright>rHn_: what language are we dealing with?
14:11<adj>if its c use a struct
14:11-!-sefz [] has joined #linode
14:11<adj>just make a class
14:11<adj>that holds the type as a boolean, and the value as an int

14:11-!-kyhwana_ [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
14:11<sefz>hi, i've installed ubuntu on my linode... apt-get can't find anything... anyone has a good repository?
14:11<sefz>i did
14:12<pbryan>sefz: etc /etc/apt/sources.list
14:12<pbryan>Err, edit.
14:12<adj>rHn_: then if you need to pack/unpack have your class implement Serializable
14:12<pbryan>You'll see universe is commented-out.
14:12<Jonno>rHn_: If it has to be a bitmask, you can use BigInteger for a 100 digit int
14:12<sefz>i uncomment universe?
14:12<pbryan>And apt-get update.
14:12<sefz>thank you

14:42<adj>is it possible that apache doesnt have permissions to read your home dir?
14:42<adj>perhaps home is o-x

14:43<randallman>YOu have restarted it gary?

14:56<adj>because hacking around plesk is non-trivial
14:56<gary4gar>how login into plesk? I have the root passoword
14:56<gary4gar>I tried logging but it didn't work
14:56<adj>i have no idea. i think i have installed plesk once, maybe
14:57<gary4gar>I tried Username:root and password:<my root password> but it says wrong username password
14:58<gary4gar>I am sure, once I get in. I can configure domains.
14:58<spkitty>that should be all you need
14:58<adj>does plesk auth through pam?
14:58<spkitty>i can only imagine the people you share the server with changed default settings
14:58<gary4gar>There must be someway to find out what login details are, they must store the logins something in shadow file or in database
14:59<adj>gary4gar: why not just ask them ;)
14:59<gary4gar>Since, I have full root level access, Maybe I can reset it
14:59<gary4gar>adj: they are management people. they won't have a clue.
15:00<spkitty>is root login disabled on your box?
15:00<spkitty>don't know then sorry, never fucked around with plesk settings - just hated it too much
15:01<gary4gar>then, I would fuck plesk tonight :P
15:01<adj>i'd like to see the statistics on rooted boxes running plesk (or other management crap) vs boxes without plesk
15:02<SelfishMan>adj: that assumes that the people running those apps actually know they have been rooted
15:02<SelfishMan>or even more so, it assumes they actually care
15:02<adj>oh. i never expected those numbers to be self reported ;)

17:21<borat>with about 800 people constantly online
17:21<borat>that idle in most cases

17:23<borat>eh thanks
17:23<DephNet[Paul]>your english is better than some english people
17:24<borat>but i've my google translator w/me LOL
17:24<Guspaz|m>800 simultaneous users with non-persistent connections? Anything could handle. With persistent connections? Apache will keel over.
17:26<Guspaz|m>Hosting your images on ImageShack: keep in mind that ImageShack has very low bandwidth restrictions, so you won't be able to host your sites' images there.
17:26-!-getsmart [] has quit [Quit: Ex-Chat]
17:26<borat>i think that the real load is 100 connections
17:26<Guspaz|m>All your visitors will simply see the "Bandwidth exceeded" image.

17:26<borat>others idle reading the contents

17:27<Guspaz|m>It sounds like any sized Linode with lighttpd or nginx should be able to handle that just fine, but somebody here will probably slap me for implying that it's easier to not use Apache for dealing with high load.

17:27<borat>adj now i'm on a shared hosting
17:27<adj>borat: is it holding up?

17:28<adj>varnish is awesome
17:28-!-cmjb [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
17:28<Guspaz|m>varnish is awesome, but I don't think it's really required in this scenario.
17:28<borat>but now i've not that load :o
17:28<adj>Guspaz|m: it would be useful for the static content only i think
17:29<Guspaz|m>adj: it would, but lighttpd and the disk cache would probably be fine for the load levels he's dealing with, and would be a simpler setup.
17:29<Guspaz|m>Or nginx.
17:29<adj>good point
17:29<Bdragon>(It does support some ESI stuff so if you have the time to goof off with page splitting you can win there)
17:29<Guspaz|m>Varnish is awesome, but if you don't need it, it's just another layer of complexity.
17:29<adj>i always tend to think in terms of "well what if the drop an ad campaign and i spike to 20k users?"
17:30<Guspaz|m>When dealing with a small static dataset and lightweight PHP pages, I'd be more concerned about bandwidth consumption at that point.
17:30<Guspaz|m>Although he didn't say that his PHP pages were lightweight, just that there was no database involved.

17:32<linbot>New news from forums: Ftp\http\Citadel don't work in General Discussion <>
17:32<Guspaz|m>borat: I think what we're saying is almost any sized Linode would do if properly configured, but that's probably about all we can say without additional information.
17:33<borat>about 10kb per user
17:34<Guspaz|m>10 KB/s per user, with 100 users? That's a lot of bandwidth.
17:35<borat>83kb is all the website size
17:35<Guspaz|m>Well, without knowing how many views you get in a day...
17:35<borat>mh 100k?
17:36<Guspaz|m>But it doesn't much matter, Linode bandwidth costs scale linearly. If you need to transfer 1000GB of data, it will cost $100 per month with a Linode 360, and it will cost $100 per month with a Linode 720.
17:36<borat>50 boh
17:36<borat>now i cant preview it
17:36<Guspaz|m>Linode charges $0.10 per gigabyte overage, and the included bandwidth costs the equivalent.
17:36<borat>i think that bandwidth is not my problem .o
17:37<borat>is a very light website
17:37<Guspaz|m>50k users per day times 83KB of data is a bit over 100GB, so any Linode plan is fine. Although, consider running mod_deflate or the equivalent, it'll save bandwidth.

17:38<borat>yes i will cache contents too
17:39<Guspaz|m>Yeah, I'd say that any sized Linode will do fine if you configure it properly.
17:39<Guspaz|m>You can always upgrade later if you need more; they can resize the linode.
17:39<Guspaz|m>Actually you can resize it since it's self-serve now.

17:40<Guspaz|m>Why not?
17:40<randallman>EVerybody Follows Speed Bits Exchange Stars Await to Glow
17:41<Guspaz|m>PHP consumes something like 10-15 MB per process (some of that shared) and a default Lighttpd fastcgi setup has, I think, 8 instances. The web server itself doesn't use much up since it isn't doing much. That's all you're running. The rest is for disk cache.

17:45<randallman>It's actually supported :P
17:45<randallman>yeah :0
17:45<randallman>as long as the banks of all channels are identical
17:45<Guspaz|m>Just because it's supported by the platform doesn't mean it's smart.
17:45<randallman>e.g. channel 1 = 4gb + 2gb and channel 2 = 4gb + 2gb.
17:45<randallman>and channel 3 = 4gb + 2gb.
17:45<randallman>well, the issue is you cant reach many target ram sizes WITHOUT mixing it

18:11-!-cmjb [] has joined #linode
18:12-!-jtaji [~jtaji@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
18:14<Pryon>(1) create disk images of the desired size, install the web site in the appropriate place in the filesystem. (2) Install quota and configure the appropriate quota for the user so they can use only the amount of disk space you specify.

18:16<amrnt>in the terminal... how to access each disk image?
18:16-!-TheJoe is now known as TheJoe|ZzZz
18:16<Pryon>What do you mean by "access"?
18:17<Yaakov>You know, access.
18:17<Pryon>Assuming the images exist in your configuration profile, you use the mount command to make them accessible in the filesystem
18:18<amrnt>where i can find them?
18:19<amrnt>am so new bie
18:20<mwalling>maybe you should start simple then
18:20<Pryon>If you look at your configuration profile, you should see a list of images and the device files to which they correspond
18:20<Pryon>For example, your root filesystem is probably /dev/xvda
18:20<mwalling>if you run head long into a cliff with out climbing equipment, you're going to get a bruise on your forhead
18:21<Pryon>So if you create an ext3 image and it is associated with device /dev/xvda, you could do mkdir /foo; mount /dev/xvda /foo and you could access that space in /foo
18:22<Pryon>mount /dev/xvdc
18:22<Pryon>or whatever the device is

18:50<amrnt>so what to use? hhh
18:50<BarkerJr>y'know, I think the only reason people complain about apache using too much ram is cause they run huge CMS applications

18:57<HoopyCat>sefz: i've seen a substantially high number with a properly-tuned not-wordpress blog via lighttpd and fastcgi. alas, i am having local network infrastructure issues doing such a benchmark right now.
18:57<spkitty>i sit around 50-70 hits a day, not much really
18:57<HoopyCat>sefz: suffice to say i can get enough traffic going to impact my local network! :-)

18:58<HoopyCat>Requests per second: 288.01 [#/sec] (mean)

20:15<Yaakov>English is spoken in many places. In spite of the admirable nationalistic spirit, "British English" is not "unqualified English".
20:16<seanscot>even the term "American English" or "Jamaican English" i find quite silly at times

20:16<Yaakov>Trystan: You apparently don't know the history of the English language or how languages evolve.
20:16<seanscot>im not nationalistic about it because im Scottish
20:17<Trystan>apparently not.

20:17<Yaakov>No, it is not. English is a language which is very dependent on loan words. "English" from England is a primitive component, based on Anglo-Saxon words generally considered the least sophisiticated.
20:18<JshWright>seanscot: not for nothing, but your use of that expression is another example of a lack of understanding of etymology
20:18<Yaakov>Most educated speakers, particularly in England, use latinate forms and loan words which are very recent introductions.
20:18<seanscot>thats nonsense yaakov , Oxford english is the most sophisticated western language there is
20:18<seanscot>i agree yaakov
20:19<Trystan>I agree with him seanscot it IS taken from anglo-saxon and other languages
20:19<seanscot>i constantly americanise my chatting online . i was chastised for it when i entered this room infact
20:19<Trystan>but that doesnt change the fact that it was derived as its own language in England
20:19<seanscot>yeah i agree
20:19<HoopyCat>no, you were chastised for calling it a room :-)
20:19<JshWright>seanscot: and using abbreviations like "u"
20:19<amitz>and lol :-p
20:19<JshWright>which is hardly "american"
20:20<seanscot>yeah , exactly , and i just pointed out that its in the same spirit as american english "colour" "color" etc
20:20<HoopyCat>oops, hit the cats lock key
20:20-!-orudie_ [] has joined #linode
20:20<seanscot>same principle
20:20<seanscot>its all for convenience
20:20<seanscot>and it doesnt matter jackshit really
20:20<seanscot>but when it compromises skills of articulation then its not good
20:21<Yaakov>Speakers at Oxbridge are a TINY minority of British Speakers. You seem to be advocating for the British equivalent of the Académie Française.
20:21<seanscot>no , but even some words when i talk to americans they are like "uhh i dunno what that means" theres a pattern of it
20:21<amitz>seanscot: I think abbreviations is basically being nice to yourself instead of others.
20:21<Yaakov>There is no prescriptive English, and the average British speaker is no expert in the language.
20:21<seanscot>and im like "how can you survive without that world" lol
20:22<seanscot>yaakov , that is nonsense
20:22<seanscot>prescriptive English is Oxford English
20:22<Yaakov>Brilliant argument. I concede.
20:23<seanscot>its the authoritive written dictionary if there is one
20:23<HoopyCat>seanscot: my pocket dictionary has ~70,000 words in it, and danged if i have to reference it regularly in my readings. most people don't have a pocket dictionary.

20:25<Yaakov>I speak standard American English and the expressive power of my language is not a second to British English, spoken at Oxbridge or anywhere else. And, for the record, the Oxford Dictionary of the English Language is the premier example of a *descriptive* dictionary, not a prescriptive one. In English, prescriptive dictionaries are laughed at.
20:26<HoopyCat>as a writer, you have to write for your audience. if your audience doesn't know their verisimilitude from vertiginous, you should probably revise it back a little bit.
20:26<opello>they call that rhetorical sensitivity in english class :p
20:26*litwol|mac googles those words
20:26<seanscot>yeah , shame that active dumbing down of the population could mean that we will all have to talk like retards to be understood
20:27<litwol|mac>THat's always been the case and will always be the case
20:27<seanscot>the active dumbing down in American culture is there for all to see , its becoming more prevelant in every country though.
20:28<litwol|mac>While general population intelligence rise, there are selective groups that will rise even further. and then they start complaining that they require to dumb down their speech to be understood ;)
20:28<seanscot>loss in articulation is a sad state
20:28<opello>the culture in general? i don't think things are dumbed down to such a degree as that suggests
20:28<@jed>we're hackers, guys:
20:28<seanscot>sorry , il rephrase , "popular culture"
20:29<HoopyCat>seanscot: moar words == less comprehension. name of the game. that's why fire alarms don't annunciate with urgency their request to vacate via the nearest egress with great dispatch; that's why they say "LEAVE THE BUILDING THROUGH THE NEAREST EXIT" in between loud squawking sounds. we gotta work with what we got.

20:29<JshWright>seanscot: Perhaps this is another Real/Fake English distinction, but 'round these parts, 'retard' is considered a fairly insensitive pejorative
20:29*litwol|mac lols @ jed
20:29<seanscot>it is insensitive , but i dont claim to be sensitive lol
20:29<opello>jed: but at least they got '6667' and '#' right :p
20:30<Yaakov>The estimated average IQ in England is 100, in the US it is 98. Wow, you are smart.
20:30<seanscot>what is it in Scotland?

20:31<Yaakov>It is actually folded into Great Britain at 100.
20:31<seanscot>didnt sound too smart there did I? lol
20:31<HoopyCat>it's a bit of a false comparison; it's already been established that all outside of scotland is comperable to crap
20:31<seanscot>ahh , thats not fair yaakov , thats like saying "oceania" for austrailians
20:31<seanscot>lol hoopy
20:32<Yaakov>There have been several exceptional mathematicians from Scotland. Actually, an unusual number.
20:32<seanscot>and inventors
20:32<JshWright>did they talk good english?
20:32<seanscot>my parents are Irish though ,thats why im thick lol
20:33<JshWright>seanscot: a few of my favorite books were written by an Irishman
20:33<Yaakov>All the data is "Great Britain", no separate Scotland.
20:33<JshWright>well, an Irishman born in the US, but raised in Ireland
20:33<HoopyCat>and by "books" he means "boozes", and by "written" he means "stolen", and by "an" he means "some drunk"
20:34<amitz>I only know scotland form highlander :-p
20:34<Yaakov>Scots are nearly impossible to understand, particularly when they get agitated. But you can get the gist of whether your life is in danger, usually.
20:34<seanscot>yeah but scotland is quite different to england
20:34<Trystan>it all depends on exposure I think
20:34<seanscot>and GB figures obscure Scottish figures , as we are 5 and a half million and they are 50 million
20:35<Trystan>I can understand some scottish accents fine because I grew up with one
20:35<seanscot>really? where from trystan?
20:35<Trystan>glasgow area I think
20:36<amitz>oh yeah, and bravehear.
20:36<dioz>omg i'm down
20:36<dioz>o nvm
20:36<Yaakov>All of the great Scots scientists shared a particular attribute: a distaste for whisky.

20:36<HoopyCat>i get knocked down, but i get up again
20:36<Trystan>one thing I cannot understand though, Is newcastle 'Chav' slang!

20:41<seanscot>cool :)
20:41<spkitty>Yaakov: more to the point all great scottish scientists shared one particular attribute - they got the fuck out of scotland as soon as they could
20:41<seanscot>well scots still speak a lot of scots
20:42<spkitty>no they don't
20:42<seanscot>which is technically a different language
20:42<spkitty>scots as a real language isn't ever spoken these days
20:42<spkitty>they speak some mishmash of scots and english
20:42<seanscot>parts of it are kitty
20:42<Yaakov>I have Welsh friends, they have the best langauge.
20:42<seanscot>yeah exactly
20:42<Sean>pk wild
20:42<Sean>** How can i VNC onto my linode from my mac
20:42<seanscot>nah , Irish gaelic is the best language

20:44<Sean>ok so basically i want to start a process, but i dont want it to stop if MY terminal closes
20:44<spkitty>we're likely moving out of dundee at the end of the year anyway - probably into the country up north somewhere
20:44<HoopyCat>Sean: take a look at "screen"
20:44<seanscot>its nice up north
20:44<Sean>however i dont want to nohup, because it creates a nohup.out file
20:44<seanscot>but i do like glasgow city life
20:44<spkitty>i hate glasgow sorry to say
20:45<spkitty>it's like dundee but slightly bigger
20:45<seanscot>have u spent much time here ?
20:45<Sean>Is there a way i can start a process from my computer without creating an output in a file?
20:45<spkitty>fuck the metal community that makes up both towns
20:45<spkitty>seanscot: i've been down a few times
20:45<Yaakov>I am sorry, but even though I love my Irish friends, they don't have a town called Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch.
20:45<seanscot>metal community is crap .
20:45<seanscot>lol yaakov
20:45<HoopyCat>Sean: take a look at "screen"
20:46<seanscot>hmm , uve been to the wrong places and in the wrong company then kitty

20:46<Yaakov>That's a real Welsh town.
20:47<Sean>then what?
20:47<spkitty>also my favourite part about Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch is how it breaks all websites that try to display it's name
20:47<JshWright>run "screen"
20:47<seanscot>yeah , but even an honest dundonian that knows anything about music or culture would admit that Glasgow is the place to be in scotland
20:47<seanscot>dundee is a town compared to glasgow
20:47<spkitty>i much prefer eds personally
20:47<spkitty>duh, dundee is such a town
20:47<spkitty>glasgow is a town compared to most places i've lived too though
20:47<Yaakov>But there is a Thai town called Krungthepmahanakornamornratanakosinmahintarayutthayamahadilokphopnopparatrajathaniburiromudomrajaniwesmahasatharnamornphimarnavatarnsathitsakkattiyavisanukamprasit.
20:48<seanscot>eds looks nice , but like dundee its a bit small and lacking in music culture
20:48<HoopyCat>Sean: that runs you through the basics
20:48<Yaakov>However, that's a transliteration so I don't know how long it is in the Thai orthography.
20:48<seanscot>maybe , but if u ever wanna come down il take u around
20:48<Sean>ok ive installed it
20:48<seanscot>and im confident u would change your mind on glasgow
20:48<seanscot>you need to know where to go to to get the most out of glasgow
20:48<seanscot>theres different ends to the city
20:49<Sean>how would i run screen?
20:49<JshWright>Sean, type "screen" and press enter

21:51<chb>I've a question re: partitioning
21:51<amitz>ask awachb
21:51<Bdragon>sefz: Gratz
21:51<amitz>ask away chb
21:51<chb>cool, thx
21:52<chb>so, I've followed the instructions provided here:
21:52-!-Holstein [] has quit []
21:52<chb>and I keep getting erros like "Uknown partition table"
21:52<chb>and blkfront barrier something
21:53<chb>and the instance is unresponsive when i try ssh/lish
21:53<chb>I'm tring this with Debian 9.10 and the newest kernel
21:54<sefz>i'm really happy with linode dudes...
21:54<@caker>unknown partition table is totally normal -- there is no partition!
21:54-!-Guest1713 is now known as meff
21:54<sefz>it's very fast and cheap..
21:54<bob2>caker: does the forward-dns check in the rdns thing special case the linode nameservers?
21:54-!-tar_ [] has joined #linode
21:55<amitz>I think you can abuse an institution by sending them something when they're required to do something for each thing you send. But I forget the specific..
21:55<@caker>bob2: no
21:55<chb>yeah, normally I'd agree with you, but I've created both the mount points and the disk images
21:55-!-meff is now known as Guest1717
21:55<chb>and have edited fstab accordingly
21:55-!-tar_ [] has left #linode []
21:56<@caker>chb: what you've done is create virtual disk devices. There are still no partitions on those virtual disks
21:56<@caker>so you can ignore the "unknown partition table"
21:57<bob2>caker: ah, thanks
21:57<chb>so, you're saying that this is a red herring and not, in fact, the reason why the system is unresponsive?
21:57<@caker>correct, and I don't know
21:58<@caker>sorry -- read that wrong. Correct answer is: affirmative
21:58<encode> <-- nifty
21:58<chb>caker: np, and thanks

22:04<HoopyCat>amitz: it's more of a sound thing
22:04<chb>caker: yes, I did, but I think I've realized my error...rebooting now
22:05<amitz>HoopyCat: if I get it right, I see some people with pin in the middle of tie without jacket.
22:05<HoopyCat>amitz: consider the differences amongst "ah, i crapped my pants!" "eh, i crapped my pants!" "hehe, i crapped my pants!" "hoho, i crapped my pants!"

22:22<Bdragon>Yes. I'm surprised you got this far without rm.

23:15<amitz>I use my linode to connect to OFTC server instead.
23:16<kyhwana_>jed: *nods* is it something you guys would look into at some point (maybe after it's matured a bit)
23:16<@jed>there's implementation details which make it mostly unusable for us
23:16<kyhwana_>oh, bummer
23:16<@jed>but I'm interested in its progress
23:16<dioz>oh shit
23:16<dioz>wrong term
23:16<@jed>it's not what it sounds like -- we'd essentially have to double our fleet and maintain a running copy of every linode to use it
23:17<@jed>one of the authors of the paper told me via e-mail about an hour ago that it has to run the entire time the domU is,'s cool, but we'll see
23:17<encode>so... where's the problem again?
23:17<@jed>I wouldn't expect it tomorrow
23:17<kyhwana_>jed: hmm, I was thinking you'd offer it as a premium service, etc
23:19<bd_>the paper sounds quite proud of the fact that the domU's not running on the backup, but it's still got all the same memory and disk needs, even if it's low-cpu
