00:01<karstensrage>is there any way to "remember me" for the password on the iPhone app?
00:02<@jed>karstensrage: the latest version saves your username and password
00:02<RSully>mine asks for password everytime
00:02<karstensrage>mine too
00:02<@jed>running latest?
00:03<RSully>oh haha nevermind, mine saved it last time
00:03<@jed>i.e., App Store doesn't offer upgrades?
00:03<RSully>yeah mine saves it
00:03<@jed>karstensrage: ^
00:03<RSully>but uh jed, id prefer you add an option NOT to save it, for my account's safty
00:03<RSully>secuirty*
00:03<@jed>the "Logout" button is there
00:03<RSully>wow i just fail tonight
00:04<RSully>yeah i know, but when im done with something i just press home :P
00:04<@jed>well, for security, I originally left saving passwords out
00:04<@jed>and then there was clamoring, so I put it in, and then there was clamoring albeit less
00:04<@jed>so unfortunately, less clamoring wins :)
00:05<@jed>it was a quicker fix to just do it by default instead of adding a check box for it, but I might come back to that
00:05<karstensrage>i use a hugely complex password so i really appreciate you saving it
00:05<@jed>karstensrage: does it work?
00:05<karstensrage>yeah
00:05<@jed>1.0.3+ save it
00:06<karstensrage>i just downloaded it again
00:06<amitz>luckily, linode is not microsoft who charge per upgrade ;-)
00:06<karstensrage>v1.0.4
00:06<@jed>yeah, that's latest
00:06<karstensrage>never got an upgrade notification though, this is anew iphone
00:06<RSully>hmm how original is the lastname zimmerlin
00:06<karstensrage>jed you wrote the Linode Manager for iPhone?
00:07<@jed>yes.
00:07<karstensrage>awesome job
00:07<@jed>thanks :)
00:07<RSully>jed you must teach me awesome objectiveCz
00:07<RSully>pls
00:07<@jed>that implies that I know it ;)
00:07<RSully>you're better than me
00:07<@jed>I copied and pasted for a while and eventually it worked
00:07<RSully>but thats the thing
00:07<RSully>IT WORKED!
00:07<RSully>:D
00:08<@jed>karstensrage: regarding the upgrading bit -- the way the machinery works in the background (don't know if you're familiar) is I submitted "Linode Manager for iPhone" and created a unique SKU for it, and all of the updates have been to that SKU
00:08<@jed>it shows up as one logical item in our UI
00:08<@jed>that's the entirety of the control I have over the "Upgrades Available" thing
00:08<@jed>I have no idea how they do it, and they don't let you do anything with it
00:08<karstensrage>yeah
00:09<RSully>apple does some magic =/
00:09<@jed>the day we dropped 1.0.3, there was several hundred upgrades, so I assume it works
00:09<karstensrage>hmm
00:09<@jed>were, not was
00:10<karstensrage>illl check again , but i dont think i got a notification
00:10<@jed>there's a numeric version in the bundle, in addition to the "marketing version" that is displayed -- apple's frameworks have all used floating-point numbers for the numeric version, so I suspect they do simple comparison
00:10<@jed>for the iPhone app, "1.0.4" is "10.4" internally
00:11<@jed>I think, been a while since I looked
00:14<RSully><3 jed's copy+paste skill
00:14<@jed>I kid, I actually wrote it, but I learned Objective-C to do it
00:14<RSully>yeah so teeech me :D
00:14<@jed>so I know that there's a lot of room for optimization, and there's still a few nagging problems I can't figure out
00:14<RSully>5 dolla
00:15<@jed>har
00:15<@jed>per minute? ;)
00:15<RSully>per day :D
00:15<@jed>if you do want to learn ObjC -- true advice -- the documentation on the Internet is all over the place
00:15<@jed>a lot of people stick to 1.0 paradigms, and 2.0 added a lot of things that make your life easier
00:16<RSully>yeah
00:16<@jed>one of them being dot getters and setters, which a lot of examples only show if they're specific to iPhone
00:16<@jed>I got a book on ObjC that I thought would take about the framework some, but it doesn't
00:16<@jed>it was useful for the language itself, though

00:17<@jed>the examples that Apple provides in the SDK are indispensable
00:17<@jed>having been raised on Win32 programming, I always took samples in SDKs with a grain of salt...so I delayed a long time until actually opening them
00:17<atourino>caker's mom is indispensable
00:17<@jed>atourino: agreed
00:18<@jed>RSully: good book on the language, SDK documentation, and examples -- and you're there
00:18<@jed>you can trudge through it with just that
00:19<@jed>you will begin to forget how to program in non-MVC environments, though
00:19<@jed>UIFrobnicatorControlEditControllerView!
00:22<atourino>I <3 complicated names in programming
00:22<atourino>so cool

01:01<amitz>..funny vent. My ISP is....funny. They use pre-purchased system, you must pay ahead before using. Now, there is slight peculiarity, that is you can't change packages you already bought. You must wait until the period end and then buy the connection package you intend to. This becomes a problem ever since they release this promotional package.
01:02<encode>funny is not the word I would use to describe that
01:02<amitz>well, I haven't finished yet.
01:03-!-jackson__ [~jackson@ip98-183-229-99.hr.hr.cox.net] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
01:05<amitz>The promotion is simple, every time you reload a voucher you will be given a free package: the cheapest one. Hence, when they run out of higher valued denomination voucher, you have to reload multiple times before you have enough value to buy the better package. But for every reload, they will extend the time lowest package. And so.... I'm now stuck with perhaps 13 days left of the lowest quality connection, *sigh*
01:06<amitz>extend the time of the lowest package
01:13<amitz>okay, the vent is not really funny. But the ISP is.

01:14<straterra>You're just pregnant
01:15<encode>amitz: sounds like a bizarre billing system
01:15<jtsage|ded>i want one of those though
01:18<amitz>encode: since this is pre-purchased, I'd call it bizzare charging system. To be fair, IIRC, they made existing package uncancelable because they were complains from people who accidentally canceled their package using payment to another package... heh
01:20<amitz>sorry, fail, let me rephrase.
01:22<amitz>To be fair, IIRC, they used to make existing package overridable by charging to another package. But they were complains from people who accidentally cancelled their package that way hence the default behavior now is "running package is uncancellable, but extended at the end of the last package".

02:02*amitz *mumbles*, I hope this vim drilling wort it.
02:07<Clorith>Why are you drilling the poor vims?
02:08<amitz>in preparation to urmom joke.
02:08*SirSquidness sticks amitz's mum in visual mode
02:09<amitz>I'm afraid to ask because I fear the answer is "there is". Is there anyway to make irssi editing behaves like vim?
02:10<xarcus>Do i need an extra ip address to get ip failover to work? or can I use an existing nodes ip and share that with another node?
02:10<amitz>SirSquidness: it's suppose to be urmom. You violate the norm!
02:10<SirSquidness>I violated urmom?
02:11<amitz>Clorith: it's urmom SirSquidness has been talking about!
02:11<amitz>I need a way to force myself to use vim editing.

02:27<Clorith>like, is there a "sent mail" folder so to speak
02:28<encode>sure. upgrade to postfix, and investigate the always_bcc option
02:28<Clorith>well, it is postfix :P
02:29<encode>well, there you go. Too easy
02:29<Clorith>I just wanted to know what was in the headers of some failed sends

03:11<purrdeta>awstats is ok
03:11<purrdeta>but it works with awstats.pl
03:11<Clorith>awstats might have jsut lost though, as the lack of an index file makes it quite useless to me

03:18<Clorith>really? o_O
03:18<Clorith>fascinating!
03:18<purrdeta>I have some random shit in httpd.conf that somehow aliases and all this crap
03:18<purrdeta>let me see here
03:19<Clorith>yeah, I used aptitude for the install, and aparently it's -supposed- to alias my httpd.conf and shit, but aparently the package isn't made for apache2, as everything defaults to /etc/apache/ =(
03:19<purrdeta>http://p.linode.com/3749
03:19<purrdeta>of course, that may be wrong because I did an interesting hybrid of the pacman install and source

06:29<Clorith>I'm afraid of how this will look once I go to analyze this xD

06:32<Clorith>I know...I'm a bad bad man
06:32<Clorith>I should use legs instead.
06:33<amitz>are you sure about the efficiency of your merger? I mean, perhaps it won't finish until next week? :-p;
06:34<Clorith>well, based on what I've heard, it takes 73 minutes to merge two 4MB logs on windows
06:34<Clorith>but this ain't windows :P
06:34<Clorith>(it's the awstats one)
06:34<straterra>73 minutes?
06:34<straterra>What, running on a Pentium Pro?
06:34<amitz>what do you mean by merge anyway? simple concat or choosing which line goes next?
06:35<Clorith>Well, slapping otgether all the old apache logs into one so I can get old stats and not jsut the last 24 hours
06:35<straterra>That sounds easy
06:36<amitz>and do you have to merge it?
06:36<Clorith>well, most of them are tar'ed down by logrotate
06:36<straterra>As long as the contents of the log files are in order, thats easy
06:37<Clorith>it also handles dns resolving while merging, so I guess that'll slow it down a bit

06:41<Clorith>well, the file is almsot 4GB now
06:41<Clorith>so it should be done any second I'd imagine

06:41<Clorith>considering it's 4MB a piece on log files, 104 of said files tar'ed
06:41<straterra>You wrote your own merging app?

07:12<Clorith>ok errm, is this a brand new node?
07:12<elench>I setup a few raw slices in the dashboard but when I try to fsck them. I get a non-existent reply.
07:12<elench>Clorith: yes brand new.
07:12<Clorith>Well, once you login o the manager it should give you a page where it asks you to create your first node
07:13<Clorith>where you pick a distro, chose a disk size and a root pass
07:13<elench>Yes.
07:13<Clorith>ok, then I'm not seeing your issue clearly
07:14<elench>I want to make various slices not have a disk as 1 slice.
07:14<Clorith>oooh
07:14<Clorith>wouldn't that leave really little space for each node?

07:15<elench>Yea. I did that.
07:15<Clorith>then pick "deploy a linux distribution"
07:15<Clorith>and select the newlyu created iamge
07:15<elench>cut up everything to the sizes I want.
07:16<elench>thats not the issue. :)

09:10<metaperl_>is there a drop-in replacement for "rm" that does not actually remove files, but move them somewhere?
09:10<Clorith>I actually saw one of those the other day, haha...but I cna't rememebr it
09:10<Clorith>also, why would you want to keep files you remove?

09:10<Clorith>This makes no sense...
09:10<amitz>oh, sorry, drop in
09:11<HoopyCat>metaperl_: i think aliasing it to mv might do the trick, BUT the hard part is remembering where the file came from for undeletion purposes... hmm
09:12<HoopyCat>Clorith: like you've never had to rummage around the Recycle Bin for the file you didn't want to delete

10:28<jamey-uk>Does Linode offer some sort of NAS for when a large amount of disk space required?
10:29<@Perihelion>Not really, but you're free to add extra disk space if need be or upgrade your plan
10:29-!-pheezy [~pheezy@64.245.48.61] has joined #linode

10:31<JshWright>you're doing it wrong ;)
10:31<tjfontaine>or you need to contact sales@ :)

10:33-!-sorressean [~FuckOff@168.103.85.95] has quit [Quit: Peace!]
10:35<jamey-uk>Hmm, the problem is I want around 512 GB of storage with much less transfer than that, something like 400 GB. But I don't want the huge price difference between a Linode 11520 and a Linode 720.
10:36<tjfontaine>and I want a pony
10:36*praetorian gives tjfontaine a pony
10:36<oojacoboo>jamey-uk: just mount an amazon s3
10:36<@Perihelion>Like I said, you can add the extra disk space
10:36<@Perihelion>There's that too
10:36<jamey-uk>tjfontaine: it's called a flexible pricing system, and also not being a total arse
10:37<jamey-uk>oojacoboo: do you have experience with s3 in terms of latency and speed?
10:37<tjfontaine>jamey-uk: sorry, I'm just 100% arse
10:37<jamey-uk>tjfontaine: well, I tried
10:37<jamey-uk>Perihelion: adding extra disk space I noticed also gets pretty expensive pretty quick I noticed
10:37<oojacoboo>jamey-uk: negative, but I am sure there are a couple dozen articles about ti and I know quite a few people on linode use it
10:37<JshWright>jamey-uk: VPS's aren't well suited to providing large amounts of disk space
10:37<jamey-uk>oojacoboo: cool, thanks, I'll look into it
10:38<jamey-uk>JshWright: fair point, I just thought there might be some cloud-type offering on its way
10:38<jamey-uk>I guess S3 or a similar third-party solution might be worth a shot
10:38<oojacoboo>jamey-uk: you should get "close" to 10mbit
10:38<tjfontaine>the problem with traditional s3 fusefs is they don't provide easy ways to modify a file, so you get nicked for uploading twice
10:38<jamey-uk>ahh
10:39<tjfontaine>there are other ones that store block info separate to take care of that
10:39<HoopyCat>S3 isn't too bad, depending on where you are and how fast you need things to be... the problem is that the linode disk is local, which means it's fast, stable, and in short supply (since there's only room for 4 normal-sized disks in 1U)
10:39<jamey-uk>it makes me feel like building a server and colocating it would be less hassle and cost over time, but I'm probably wrong
10:39<jamey-uk>HoopyCat: ah, that makes sense
10:39<oojacoboo>jamey-uk: you are def wrong about colo
10:39<@Perihelion>You could rent a dedi
10:40<@Perihelion>Colo is crazy expensive in comparison in most cases
10:40*oojacoboo has been there and done that
10:40<@Perihelion>I looked into it...:S
10:40<@Perihelion>There's a reason the server is sitting in my kitchen instead of being racked
10:40<oojacoboo>same reason I have 6...
10:41<JshWright>Perihelion: plus, if you're going to be paying for the electricity anyway, might as well use it to heat your house a bit
10:41<praetorian>Perihelion: because it made nice marmelade?
10:41<jamey-uk>Perihelion: Yeah we currently rent a dedi
10:41<HoopyCat>jamey-uk: beware of redundancy when looking for bulk storage... you prrrobably want at least two mirrored drives, which is going to make life correspondingly more expensive
10:41<oojacoboo>JshWright: unless you live somewhere where you don't want it heated ;)
10:41<@Perihelion>The kitchen was a convenient place for it. Also insert female/kitchen jokes here since I know you want to.
10:41<jamey-uk>But we need a bigger server, or more servers, so are looking towards cloud-type solutions or whatever we can find that will fit
10:41<HoopyCat>jamey-uk: i look at it as the difference between the cost of disk and the cost of storage :-)
10:42<@Perihelion>JshWright: The nice thing about it is that it doesn't get hot
10:42<@Perihelion>It's cool to the touch even when I use it to render 3d images n stuff
10:42<praetorian>Perihelion: but i dont know any :(
10:42<amitz>oojacoboo: it's too hot here you insensitive clod!
10:42<amitz>:-p
10:42<oojacoboo>Perihelion: they have amazing fans, most of them b/c when they are racked, they can't dissipate heat through the case really
10:43<jamey-uk>HoopyCat: hmm, okay - what would you do if you needed about 500 GB storage total, one hefty processing machine and one for regular LAMP stuff
10:43<HoopyCat>jamey-uk: what are you storing, and how often is it being read/written?
10:43<@Perihelion>It's racked on a half rack atm with another server

10:46-!-dajhorn [~dajhorn@transmisor.vanadac.com] has joined #linode
10:46<HoopyCat>jamey-uk: honestly, the first thought that comes to mind is S3, because it sounds like the files won't be edited in place or overwritten very often. (plus, S3's API will spit out temporary short-lifespan URLs that can be used to directly fetch files, e.g. if someone wants to download something but the file isn't otherwise world-readable)
10:47<jamey-uk>HoopyCat: we do have certain files that are overwritten potentially *very* frequently though, a bunch of PDFs to be precise
10:47<HoopyCat>jamey-uk: S3 via FUSE never really gave me that warm, happy comfortable feeling, so i usually end up just skipping the filesystem altogether when dealing with S3
10:47<jamey-uk>Amazon's offering has always sounded needlessly complex
10:48<JshWright>jamey-uk: how big are the PDFs?
10:48<JshWright>could you store those locally while sticking the images on S3?
10:48<HoopyCat>jamey-uk: it's ok with overwriting... i just worry about the read-the-file-in, start-editing, save-it-every-5-minutes loop of doom :-)
10:48<jamey-uk>JshWright: anything from a few megs to hundreds dependent on the customer
10:48<JshWright>DOOM!
10:49<HoopyCat>jamey-uk: but but but it has "simple" right there in the name! :-)
10:49<jamey-uk>HoopyCat: that's exactly the loop-of-doom we'd get with those PDFs
10:49<jamey-uk>HoopyCat: yeah, someone paid the marketing department way too much
10:49<jamey-uk>so we could store the PDFs locally and everything else on S3, that would probably be optimal from what you're saying
10:50<jamey-uk>there's very few cases where we're editing the photos, they either get deleted (eventually) or just more are uploaded
10:50<HoopyCat>jamey-uk: probably a good way to split things up. i like to use S3 as cold storage, for lack of a better analogy. it's the chest freezer out in the garage.
10:51<jamey-uk>HoopyCat: I like the analogy, but my way of using it would be more like a defrosting freezer (perhaps)... stuff will be being uploaded to it frequently, just not overwritten or 'edited' often, does that make sense?
10:52<jamey-uk>(I have a tendency to break analogies to a fubar'd state...)
10:52<HoopyCat>jamey-uk: another alternative is to roll your own storage architecture using one of those nice distributed filesystems everyone seems to be reinventing every week (someone remind me to rant about this) and a sufficiently-large number of inexpensive loss-leader dedicated servers
10:53<jamey-uk>Yeah but that sounds potentially fragile and volatile... what if one of the dedi centre goes down or bust?

11:19<bd_>jamey-uk: It's theoretically possible, but not the way linode has things configured (you could run paravirt xen inside normal xen's hardware virtualizaion mode)
11:20<jamey-uk>ah okay

13:08<Guspaz>Which is ~75 degrees I guess.
13:09<tanto>you mean that's what they like to keep the heat at =)
13:09<RSully>i'd prefer like 72 for the ac, anything higher is too hard to concentrate for me

13:50<@pparadis>somebody wrote a web server in postscript once

13:51<Yaakov>sorressean: Webmin's iptables module is pretty good.

13:52<dKingston>i do admit that

13:54<Yaakov>I use an httpd that runs on an original Babbage engine.
13:54<pwnguin>i was thinking about using erlang for the web
13:55<dKingston>..web server in.. ASM?!
13:55<dKingston>jed: what are you nuts?
13:55<@jed>against Win32
13:55<pwnguin>but then i found out it didn't support apache
13:55<tanto>erlang is kind of cool for some things
13:55<@jed>it was an exercise in __fastcall calling conventions under Win32
13:55<dKingston>jed: now do it in pure binary.
13:55<@jed>no.
13:55<pwnguin>we have these things called compilers and assemblers
13:55<@jed>honestly, if the idea of a Web server in assembly under Win32 scares you, you shouldn't be designing a language
13:55<@jed>word from the wise, my friend
13:55<pwnguin>they do these mundane translations for you
13:56<dKingston>i'm just kidding around
13:56<@jed>I know :)
13:56<@jed>write an interpreter first
13:56<@jed>optimizing hash table lookups for namespaces is a challenge in itself
13:56<pwnguin>hell, write the grammar and a dozen programs first
13:56<@jed>pwnguin: I mean an interpreter for an already-established language
13:56<dKingston>jed: which
13:56<@jed>dKingston: pick one
13:56<dKingston>C++
13:57<@jed>I'd recommend something simple and turing complete
13:57<Guspaz>COBOL
13:57<pwnguin>dKingston: you should write a parser for... ML

13:58<erikh>it's not hard.
13:58<pwnguin>dKingston: everything has been done
13:58<chrisa>C has a pretty simple syntax for what it's worth
13:58<@jed>this is an exercise for your learning, not distribution
13:58<chrisa>The grammar is in the back of the K&R book
13:58<tanto>problem #2 fixed, crontab'd cron find -exec rm syntax fail!
13:58<@jed>plus walking away from a project because it's been done already will make you a bummed out programmer for the rest of your life

13:59<dKingston>pwnguin: ...never

13:59<erikh>what a colossal waste of effort.
13:59<@jed>write an assembler
13:59<@jed>seriously, you think I'm kidding, but it's about as easy as it gets in the "coding tools" line of work
13:59<pwnguin><-- wrote a translator from MiniJava to C
13:59<@jed>complex syntaxes are for pros
13:59<erikh>anyhow, if you get stuck writing a scheme evaluator, there should be plenty of help out there.
13:59<erikh>it's not hard.
14:00<@jed>here you go: implement MMIX
14:00<@jed>implement MMIX and write an assembler for it
14:00<pwnguin>mini java == java without the annoying object reflections
14:00<@jed>implementing MMIX in hardware is on my list of things to do before I die
14:00<pwnguin>surely someone has posted that on opencores already
14:00<erikh>2009 was so last year.
14:01<HoopyCat>i dunno, i'd be happy building an 8-bit architecture in 74xx-series logic
14:01<pwnguin>heh
14:02<erikh>sql isn't that hard to write a grammar for either
14:02<pwnguin>The GNU Compiler Collection includes an MMIX back-end for its C/C++ compilers, contributed by Hans-Peter Nilsson and part of the main GCC distribution since late 2001.
14:02<erikh>at least the basics.
14:02<@jed>pwnguin: yeah, but nobody's put it in an FPGA yet
14:02<HoopyCat>hard part's finding enough physical space, wire, and room in the breaker panel for the 200-amp 5V supply
14:02<@jed>HoopyCat: ever thought about building an IBM PC on a breadboard?
14:02<pwnguin>jed: apparently not
14:02<@jed>a few people have done that
14:03<pwnguin>jed: but since gcc targets it you can at least build a few test apps
14:03<pwnguin>although, i suspect you'd be missing peripherals
14:04<HoopyCat>jed: it's entirely possible
14:04<@jed>yeah, and would be fun
14:04<pwnguin>im sure they did one or two of those at IBM
14:05*Guspaz 's idea of a DIY project is to build an NES PC that, excepting the lid, has no outward differences from a normal NES, including accepting the orginal controllers and outputting via composite.
14:06<pwnguin>Guspaz: what about the carts?
14:07<Guspaz>I'm willing to sacrifice that in order to fit the PC in there, and to give some place for PC connectors to be available.
14:07<pwnguin>NES is well documented and old enough that you can probably find linux drivers for the controllers
14:08<Guspaz>I'm afraid that such a project is probably beyond my skills, though. Getting a PC into a NES isn't the problem, getting connectors and such working is.
14:08<Guspaz>I had planned to just get USB adapters and wire them up internally.
14:09<erikh>you used to be able to find kits on fidonet that would adapt snes and nes controllers to old style game ports.
14:09<erikh>not that... i've done that or anything.

14:18<Guspaz>erikh: More interesting is that it looks like NES and SNES controllers are electrically compatible, in that the same retrozone controller handles both NES and SNES... So if I could build/buy an SNES to NES adapter (like this: http://www.stupidfingers.com/projects/snes2nes/), then I could use SNES controllers on the NESPC without needing uglification.

15:59<randallman>Nah guspaz
15:59<randallman>old guy just got fired today :)
16:00<chesty> poor old guy
16:00<Guspaz>But you didn't, and the new guy isn't causing issues yet, so... Don't be so down!
16:01<randallman>he's a friend
16:01<randallman>and someone who isnt that different than I
16:01<randallman>and bleh
16:01<Daevien>become the BOFH randallman, make it so they can't get anyone else to manage and hire him back
16:01<randallman>it disheartens me about my employer and their appraoch to people :)
16:02<Daevien>vast majority of employers only care about one thing: money. though it sound slike this guy brought them money, he was a risk sinc ehe didn't brownnose to their standard :p
16:02<randallman>bingo
16:02<randallman>but I dont brownnose to thier standard either
16:03<randallman>not sure why I havent been fired ;)
16:03<Guspaz>Because you're randallman.
16:03<randallman>yeehaw :P
16:03<randallman>Ya know the biggest surprise to me is that there are others in my field or even at my compnay who are LESS flexible and accomidating than I am
16:03<randallman>which is UNBELIEVABLE
16:03<randallman>because I'm an asshole :)
16:03<Daevien>cause they need you/. until they can find someone else to do your job for less :p
16:04<randallman>People like us who can code, build networks, build servers, and get the birds eye view of the business arent exactly growing on trees :0
16:05<randallman>moreover, those of us that actually retain people skills too...

16:36<Phiber_Optic>what about running chkrootkit?

17:27<erikh>dunno what the deal is lately, but putting my wallet in my back pocket at all, no matter how thin I make it, just tears my back to shreds after an hour or two
17:27<randallman>Best is driving long distances with the wallet in the ass pocket :)
17:27<kaitocracy>hi, I've two linodes and I'd like to say ssh from one to the other using the internal network
17:27<Yaakov>erikh: Remove the spool of razor wire you keep in it.
17:27<kaitocracy>so I do ssh linode1 from linode2
17:27<erikh>yeah, that'd probably help
17:28<Yaakov>kaitocracy: Then put private IPs on each and BLAM.
17:28<kaitocracy>I'd like linode1 at this point to see the request as coming from the private network IP of linode2 and not its public network IP
17:28<kaitocracy>how to do this?
17:28<erikh>but really.. back was agitating me all day, wondering what the hell I did (I don't normally have this problem), removed wallet, poof.
17:28<tjfontaine>money clip!
17:28<erikh>so in a way, ardmore pizza delivery relieved my back. that's kind of weird.

17:28<dvdm>kaitocracy: are they in the same location?

17:29<erikh>I tried that a long time ago. I always thought it was kind of showy
17:29<Yaakov>Hrm...
17:29<Yaakov>kaitocracy: Yes, they must be in the same data center.
17:29<kaitocracy>Yaakov: yes they are and usually it just works
17:29<Yaakov>kaitocracy: are you using names or IPs?
17:29<kaitocracy>Yaakov: I'm using names and I've got the names mapped to private network IP's in /etc/hosts
17:30<Yaakov>Are those names also the same as the ones you have in DNS for the public address?
17:31<kaitocracy>Yaakov: okay so DNS uses the same names and returns the public address
17:31<Yaakov>kaitocracy: Actually, just use the -b parameter on the ssh line.
17:32<erikh>or configure .ssh/config
17:32<Yaakov>kaitocracy: Or put it there, yes.
17:32<jonsowman>recommendations for uk domain registrars?
17:32<kaitocracy>Yaakov: interesting thanks that works now what about everything else?
17:32<Yaakov>I was about to suggest that.
17:32<kaitocracy>is there a way to set a default binding address?
17:32<erikh>(both options work equally, but if you're doing the -b a lot, be aware you can avoid that)
17:32<kaitocracy>because it's not just ssh that's the problem
17:32<erikh>kaitocracy: right. see what Yaakov and I were just saying.
17:32<Yaakov>kaitocracy: Yes, in the above-mentioned file.
17:32<Yaakov>Oh, for *everything*, no.

17:34<randallman>nice :)
17:34<randallman>a dude named jams :P
17:34<jams>yep
17:34<randallman>Hai
17:34<jams>it happens alot in the channel for some reason
17:35<kaitocracy>I guess the problem is that when my linode accesses another linode in the private network I'd like it to bind to the private address rather than its public address
17:35<kaitocracy>and usually it works correctly
17:35<randallman>kaitocracy, hmm... it should source from the address it routes via
17:36<randallman>unless the endpoint is specifically NOT the interface via which it routes...
17:36<kaitocracy>and this is a HUGE problem because tcp_wrappers and iptables and everything else is configured such that the private network traffic should appear to originate from private network addresses
17:36<Yaakov>I like exotic jams on fresh bread.
17:36<Yaakov>kaitocracy: Is this a *change* in behavior?
17:36<kaitocracy>randallman: I'm sorry I'm sort of a routes n00b what does this mean?
17:36<kaitocracy>Yaakov: yes and it is seemingly random
17:36<randallman>If you connect to the server on the private, it should appear to come from the private
17:37<randallman>if you connect to the server on the public, it should appear to come from the public

17:37<kaitocracy>Yaakov: well basically what randallman said above is the correct behavior
17:37<kaitocracy>Yaakov: then all of a sudden for no apparent reason
17:37<kaitocracy>Yaakov: when I connect to a server on the private it will appear to come from the public
17:37<Yaakov>Yes, but what changed at the time the behavior changed?
17:37<randallman>o/~ All of a sudden for no apparent reason o/~
17:38<kaitocracy>randallman: I'm dead serious it happened overnight when I was sleeping
17:38<Yaakov>kaitocracy: No, if you connect on the private address it will HAVE TO come from the provate address.
17:38<Yaakov>You are connecting to the public address.

17:38<randallman>Not sure how the privates are implemented @ linode, as a seperate VLAN?
17:38<kaitocracy>Yaakov: no I am not I am connecting to the private address
17:38<randallman>w/ no L3 rotuer?
17:39<Yaakov>If you try to connect to a 192.168.x.x address it CANNOT use the public interface.
17:39<randallman>If you connect to the public address, the source will appear to be the public....
17:39<kaitocracy>Yaakov: then is my problem just in the address resolution?
17:39<randallman>as it must, because packets received from the private address on one box towards the public of another would cause asymmetrical routing...
17:39<Yaakov>kaitocracy: It almost certainly is.
17:40<Yaakov>kaitocracy: Because you can't get to the private LAN from the public one.
17:40<randallman>yaakov, notwithstanding things like irssi choosing to use another addres on the box

17:40<randallman>for example
17:40<Yaakov>randallman: You still can't get there from here.
17:40<randallman>is how I *appear* as the inside interface of my linode rather than the hetunnel address
17:40<randallman>Well that's true...
17:40<kaitocracy>Yaakov: but when I test it by hand the name resolves to the correct address
17:41<Yaakov>kaitocracy: The application may not use the same method to resolve.
17:41<randallman>He could asymmetric it, stamping the private address into the TCP packet as it exits via the public interface :)
17:41<Yaakov>host, dig and nslookup will show different things.
17:41<randallman>But that's probably not what is happenning :)
17:41<kaitocracy>for example I have this in my SSH log
17:41<kaitocracy>Address 97.107.128.116 maps to linode3.kiwilight.com, but this does not map back to the address - POSSIBLE BREAK-IN ATTEMPT!
17:41<kaitocracy>Accepted publickey for kaiting.chen from 97.107.128.116 port 36215 ssh2
17:41<Yaakov>randallman: Go ahead and write your routing table to send private IPs to the public interface and see how far you get...
17:42<randallman>Yaakov :) Perhaps there's other forces at work here :)
17:42<randallman>such as spoofing filters etc...

17:42<randallman>Kaitocracy, why arent you using different hostnames for the privates/
17:42<randallman>e.g. linode3-priv.kiwilight.com
17:42<kaitocracy>randallman: didn't think there was a reason to as long as /etc/nsswitch.conf was set up properly
17:42<randallman>incorrect
17:43<randallman>you're confusing yourself and your system resolver
17:43<randallman>and then some apps like Net::DNS (perl) or Java DNS (java) might not even care about nsswitch or local resolver settings
17:43<kaitocracy>randallman: I see so the fix here is to have different names for the private addresses?
17:43<randallman>Yes
17:43<randallman>Totally
17:44<randallman>you'll take fewer advils
17:44<randallman>:)
17:44<kaitocracy>randallman: I see okay I'll go ahead and do that thanks
17:44<randallman>if you have multiple A records for the same host, it will round robin
17:44<randallman>if you have something different in /etc/hosts than in dns
17:44<randallman>it may behave differently in different situation

17:46<randallman>since there's no NAT :-)
17:47<kaitocracy>okay another question if I want to VPN into my linode from a Windows machine what is the best way to do this?
17:47<randallman>o/~ Once in a lifetime, water flowing underground o/~
17:47<randallman>I hear OpenVPN is good...
17:47<kaitocracy>I've been using OpenVPN and it's been a sucky solution
17:47<randallman>I personally just ssh port forward
17:47<Guspaz>I use OpenVPN-as, I like it.
17:47<kaitocracy>since it doesn't actually install on Windows properly
17:47<Guspaz>The -AS part of OpenVPN-AS is both good and bad. Good because it vastly simplifies the client and server config, bad because the free version only allows 2 simultaneous VPN connections.
17:47*Pryon uses the openVPN gui on a laptop and it's not too bad
17:48<Guspaz>The AS client is very simple, though. No options, no config, just a server provided profile.
17:48<kaitocracy>well I don't really have any problems with the client
17:48<erikh>yeah, at work I have several people doing the windows vpn client thing
17:48<kaitocracy>but TAP-WIN32 won't install for the love of God on Winodws 7 64-bit
17:48<erikh>w/ openvpn
17:48<erikh>kaitocracy: you need a newer openvpn
17:48<erikh>trust me. it works.
17:49<kaitocracy>erikh: been trying with the latest development version
17:49<erikh>I am using ... 2.4 I think?
17:49<kaitocracy>erikh: can't install on my Windows machine
17:49<Guspaz>kaitocracy: The OpenVPN Access Server client worked perfectly fine for me on Windows 7 64-bit, I ran the client installer and it was just working and connected.
17:49<erikh>and w7, 64-bit. working great.
17:49<kaitocracy>erikh: oh wait what is OpenVPN Access Server?
17:49<erikh>hell if I know.
17:49<Guspaz>OpenVPN's commercial distro of OpenVPN: http://openvpn.net/index.php/access-server/download-openvpn-as.html
17:49<Guspaz>It's turnkey style.
17:50<Guspaz>It's quite nice, but as I said, the free account can only have 2 clients connected at a time.
17:50<erikh>the only problems I ever have with ovpn on windows are with split dns
17:50<erikh>and that's because windows' dns cache is a complete turd
17:50<kaitocracy>interesting I'll take a look at this thanks
17:50<erikh>s/cache/resolver in general/
17:50<Guspaz>The cost for additional clients is $5 one-tim.
17:50<Guspaz>*one-time
17:50<randallman>o/~ I am standing up at the water's edge in my dream... I cannot amke a single sound as you scream! o/~
17:50<erikh>kaitocracy: hold on, i'll get you an exact copy of the installer I use.
17:51<erikh>I have it bundled with other stuff so I need to pluck it out.
17:51<randallman>what about the whole pptpd thing?
17:51<randallman>I know its not perfect or anything
17:51<erikh>you can see the version and find a less likely to be exploited copy
17:51<randallman>DONT DEW IT... ERIK SEEKS TO PWN j00! :P
17:51<Guspaz>The trick with openvpn access server is that the clients are generated by the server; each user gets their own customized installer when they log into the web interface. You can also set it up to auto-connect so that it's literally zero-config (run the client and it connects).
17:51<randallman>(kidding)
17:51<erikh>well, I am handing him an installer that installs system-level drivers. I wouldn't trust me either.
17:51<Guspaz>randall pptp is super annoying to set up, and GRE is limiting.
17:52<randallman>gre is limiting due to PMTUD sucking?
17:52<Guspaz>Due to the lack of ports.

17:53<@jed>ssh vpn ftw

19:30<Phiber_Optic>did u read my message?
19:32<Bohemian>no?
19:33<Phiber_Optic>I said before that I was going to cancel my account here in linode because i need a managed vps
19:34<maushu>Managed...? MANAGED?!
19:34<xorl>really?
19:34<xorl>Managed?
19:34<xorl>how hard is it to MANAGE a vps?
19:34<Phiber_Optic>xorl I dont know...
19:35<@jed>Phiber_Optic: you'll never know if you don't learn
19:35<xorl>It takes like a good 20 minutes to setup, the rest is just maintenence :\
19:35<BarkerJr>yum update often
19:35<Phiber_Optic>the thing is i have no experience and soon we will be launching an application like ticketmaster
19:35<Phiber_Optic>where security is a MUST
19:35<Bohemian>Phiber_Optic: then hire someone to do it, if you don't want to. linode is great.
19:35<@Perihelion>If you set up the VPS properly, security of your app is the main concern
19:35<xorl>Phiber_Optic: on a VPS?
19:36<Phiber_Optic>xorl yes
19:36<@Perihelion>Gotta start somewhere
19:36<@Perihelion>:P
19:37<Phiber_Optic>Perihelion how would I know if the vps is set correcty
19:38<@Perihelion>There are guides and people to ask :D
19:38<smed_>Phiber_Optic, - consider hiring an experienced Systems Administrator.
19:40<Phiber_Optic>:(
19:41<@Perihelion>Are you having a problem with something specific?
19:41<@jed>or investing the time and learning yourself
19:41<@Perihelion>Or just generally overwhelmed?
19:42<@jed>Phiber_Optic: a system administrator on a managed VPS is going to watch over the VPS itself -- meaning, local logins, keeping your packages updated, and all that jazz. I don't know a percentage, but I'd wager better than 90% of attacks that take down a VPS are through an application
19:42<@Perihelion>Yeah, agreed
19:42<@jed>a recent example would be apache.org JIRA, which was taken down through JIRA
19:43<@jed>weak passwords probably round out the percentages
19:43<Phiber_Optic>Perihelion i think im overwhelmed... and when i read http://www.wiredtree.com/supportservices/servershield.php it makes me wonder
19:43<@jed>honestly, to hear you say "we're launching an application like ticketmaster," and "I'm not experienced with security," it makes me nervous for you
19:44*smed_ nods
19:44<@jed>Phiber_Optic: this isn't because that service is offered by someone other than Linode -- i.e., I'd tell you the same thing if I worked for them
19:44<@jed>that's a complete and utter marketing shill
19:44<@jed>you can do all of that for free by reading through a few guides
19:45<@jed>think the Computer Optimization that best buy geek squad tries to sell you
19:45*smed_ chuckles
19:45<erikh>allow me to inject my horribly arrogant opinion here.
19:45<@Perihelion>That shield thing
19:45<mikegrb>lolz
19:45<@Perihelion>I can probably tell you exactly what they do...lol
19:46<mikegrb>lolz
19:46<Phiber_Optic>lol
19:46<xorl>Easiest 3 things: Firewall off important services, Don't code like a slob, make sure your updates are *CURRENT*
19:46<@Perihelion>Advanced Firewall (CSF) <-- you can easily install this yourself. The directions are awesome
19:46<erikh>it takes time to understand the issues, and understanding the issues is an important part of filtering out the crap suggestions you'll undoubtedly get.
19:46<xorl>It's not hard, but that's an durastic over simplification haha.
19:46<@jed>AUIIS -- All User Input Is Suspect
19:46<@jed>remember that as a programmer.
19:46<erikh>so, you have a time issue here that I don't think gets resolved with a few howto's.

19:48<@jed>Phiber_Optic: this is going to sound really harsh, so please don't take it as such
19:48<@Perihelion>No
19:48<@jed>if you don't like tinkering and getting into things
19:48<@jed>you don't deserve to work in IT.
19:48<@jed>the end.
19:49<@jed>a lot of administration is scriptable, and tech stuff always interests me
19:49<mikegrb>lolz
19:49<xorl>And another thing to add to the end of jed's statement, if you're just now setting up a server to launch a pre-coded project, you're horrible at project management lol
19:49<@jed>I realize you might have taken my 'you' there to mean you personally, but I don't, I mean the 'general' you
19:49<xorl>Exactly, whoever was before you, or you as in "The group" did not plan that out well.
19:50<xorl>I never jump on a projects bandwagon without knowing A) a release date and B) what will be needed.

20:52<atourino>yo dawg, I heard you like ssh so we put an open session into your open session so you can config while you config
20:52<Bohemian>(i'm using debian lenny)
20:52<@jed>just add -vvv to your regular ssh command line...
20:52<Bohemian>ooh
20:52<Bohemian>what does vvv mean?
20:52<atourino>verbose

21:01<@jed>I have an RSA key that it vomits on all day long

21:02<atourino>jed: you should change your machine's name to cameltoe. it's funnier than undertow...

23:10<RSully><!-- Cached page generated by WP-Super-Cache on 2010-04-20 23:09:16 -->
23:10<sbruner>it's been running for months.
23:11<@irgeek>Looks to me like it's cacheing, but regenerating the cache on every hit?
23:11<sbruner>what do you mean " rewrites correct"?
23:12<@irgeek>The stuff that make the cacheing work.

23:14<HoopyCat>i just hit it with wget a couple times; the first time took ~10 seconds, subsequent tries were almost instant. same .html output each time. so i think it's invalidating the cache more often than it should...
23:14<@irgeek>sbruner: The stuff under "Mod Rewrite Rules" in the plugin config.
23:15<HoopyCat>fourth attempt took ~8 seconds; only difference in html output was the wp-super-cache footer
23:16<sbruner>irgeek. section is not there.

23:18<@irgeek>I think you need to tweek something in MySQL. Pretty sure it's (a) quer(y)ies on the front that's are slowing it down.

23:19<sbruner>how do I identify slow queries?
23:19<HoopyCat>sbruner: wordpress is traditionally not the fastest application in the stack; caching should be helping you more than it is, but yeah, it's probably just sticking on one or two elements
23:20<RSully>try disabling certain plugins
23:20<HoopyCat>turn things off until performance improves. or i think mysql has a slow query log or something
23:20<sbruner>can you try home page again? I think it just sped up

23:25<HoopyCat>=== Possible Causes ===

23:26<erikh>sbruner: sorry, all I can think of is 'broner' when I read your name.
23:26<erikh>don't take offense. I just had to mention it is all.
23:26<HoopyCat>sbruner: do you have a... /var/log/mysql/slow-query.log or something like that?
23:28<sbruner>hoopyCat can't find one
23:28<sbruner>of course.
23:29<sbruner>rsully afreed
23:29<RSully>what?
23:29<HoopyCat>sbruner: ah, it'll be log_slow_queries in my.cnf
23:29<sbruner>erikh went to highoS school with a bronet
23:29<HoopyCat>log_slow_queries = /var/log/mysql/slow-query.log

23:31<@irgeek>PHP makes me stabby.
23:33<amitz>it was written so often that I thought irgeek just type another variation of...
23:33<sbruner>hoopyCat not sure if enabled. can enabling screw anything up?
23:33<erikh>'closure' would be so much better there
23:33<erikh>get on my heap, my heap is amazing.
23:34*irgeek declines to get on your heap
23:34<HoopyCat>sbruner: in theory, if you have a LOT! of slow queries, the process of logging them to the file could be a performance hit. however, by "a LOT!" i mean "many dozens per second, sustained", and if you're at that point.....
23:34<HoopyCat>sbruner: plus i think it requires a mysqld restart, which'll poop things out for a few seconds
23:34<amitz>erikh: hmm what's with you anyway? you have been quite active recently?
23:35<sbruner>hoopyCat got it
23:35<jtsage|ded>HoopyCat- logging them does requite a restart. and yes, when you hit *that* point, the disk IO overhead of logging does indeed rear it's ugly head.
23:35<erikh>amitz: caffeine.
23:35<erikh>and a lot of work.
23:36<mikegrb>mmm cake
23:36<purrdeta>http://www.thecakejar.com/ It's cake in a jar!
23:36<HoopyCat>jtsage|ded: which is still useful information :-)
23:37<@Perihelion>purrdeta: im totally ordering this.
23:37<purrdeta>I know
23:37<sbruner>FYI. I'm looking for 24x7 monitoring and support. anyone know of a company that does this ?
23:37<mikegrb>mmm cake
23:37<HoopyCat>purrdeta: it's like bonsai kitten, but for cake!
23:37<purrdeta>HoopyCat: zomg yes! :P
23:37<RSully>theres lots of companies who do it, but they cost $$
23:37<purrdeta>also not horribly cruel
23:37<jtsage|ded>HoopyCat- quite. until you hit the established system where you can't log the queries because it kills the box, and you can't find the suspect queries because you can't log them.... :)
23:38<HoopyCat>sbruner: 24x7 monitoring? there's quite a few out there, very affordably priced. 24x7 support? i fear it's probably gonna be cheaper (and more useful) to have a contract sysadmin and architect things so as to not need support at 3am on december 25.
23:39<sbruner>hoopyCat agreed
23:39<sbruner>my server usually behaves. all wordpress. all svn.
23:40<HoopyCat>pure luck!
23:40<@Perihelion>And maybe witchcraft
23:40<RSully>ive not a single problem with my linode so far :P
23:40<RSully>HoopyCat: you ever manage to recreate my io graph?
23:41<@Perihelion>Me either :3!
23:41<randallman>I have a terrible new years story :)
23:41<randallman>lost power NYE 2008->2009
23:41<randallman>generator fail :)
23:41<HoopyCat>RSully: nope; busy with school
23:41<randallman>didnt matter if we were on call or not, we all had to bust up in the joint :)
23:41<HoopyCat>i just packed my entire kit away and i have exactly 1 extra twist tie. wtf
23:41<RSully>magic
23:42<RSully>they probably counted on you being stupid and losing a twist tie
23:42<HoopyCat>RSully: i is they
23:42<RSully>well you should know better next time
23:45<erikh>pingdom can handle the monitoring issue.
23:45<erikh>it's pretty cheap and we've had great success with it.
23:45<@irgeek>sbruner: This may be of interest as well: http://www.pagerduty.com/
23:46<RSully>do they support pagers or only sms
23:46<@irgeek>Phone, SMS & email.
23:47<RSully>i almost want to buy a pager
23:49<erikh>so it doesn't come with the "boss is calling and you must answer" extra benefits?
23:49<RSully>i was just joking
23:49<RSully>i don't have a boss anyways
23:49<erikh>I know a few people who desire pagers (or have asked for them) for just that reason, is all I'm saying
23:50<Trystan>i has a pager
23:50<Trystan>i love when it doesnt go off....
23:50<erikh>yes. me too.
23:50<Trystan>state requirements that its tested daily
23:50<Trystan>so i get one a day, but other than that its been quiet recently.
23:51<RSully>well, im off. be back in 11 hours
23:51<erikh>lata
23:51<HoopyCat>974!
23:51<sbruner>irgeek. thanks. curently use pingdom
