01:12<the1>it has been half an hour since I tried password reset. now, how do I contact Linode to get help regarding this?
01:13<bd_>are you sure you are checking the right email? :)
01:13<the1>bd_, yes and I checked spam folder too.
01:14<the1>also, I don't remember entering any password while signing up. I think it asked for the email ID and billing details only.
01:14<bob2>it asked for passwords
01:15<amitz>maybe your password is your billing address ;-)
01:15<Fieldy>your SSN!
01:15<bd_>Fieldy: What, 1234?
01:16<the1>I logged in. :)
01:16<amitz>you're welcome ;-)
01:16<the1>I was entering the email address in the password field.
01:16<the1>sorry, email address in username field.
01:16*amitz attacks!
01:16<bd_>the1: that might just explain why the reset email didn't go through :)
01:19<the1>does it matter where I place the new Linode?
01:19<the1>i have 6 datacenters as option
01:19<bob2>mtr thoue and see which is closest
01:19<Fieldy>if ipv6 is a need, look for those, otherwise, yeah mtr
01:19<bd_>the1: The atlanta DC is a bad choice if you intend to run an IRC server. If you want IPv6, look here first:
01:19<bd_>other than that pick whichever is network-closest to either you or your users
01:20<bd_>you can change later, btw - although it takes some time to transfer your disk image
01:20<the1>most of my users are from India and US, two opposite parts of the world. So, European server would be a good idea?
01:20<the1>or Japan?
01:20<bd_>hmm, not sure which would be better in that case
01:20<the1>okay. thanks.
01:21<bd_>but yeah, one of those two
01:21-!-AsadR [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
01:21<bdube>linode lets you buy in BOTH or ALL
01:21<bd_>I shall purchase ALL THE LINODES
01:21<bdube>oh dang
01:21-!-pjbrunet [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
01:21<bd_>except not really because there's no way I can afford something like that :|
01:22<the1>bd_, why is atlanta DC a bad choice?
01:22<bdube>fort piltering
01:22<bd_>the1: atlanta dc filters some incoming ports. It's really only a problem if you're running an IRC server - 6667 is one of the blocked ports
01:22<the1>why do they do so?
01:22<bd_>the1: it's some datacenter-level policy.
01:22<Fieldy>i've been at atlanta for about a year, it's never caused me problems
01:22<the1>Fieldy, do you run IRC server on it.
01:22-!-the1 is now known as spal
01:22<bd_>it was linode's second DC, they didn't think to ask if ports were filtered until it was too late
01:23<bd_>and now they're stuck with it
01:23<bob2>atlanta at least made the filters one way
01:23<bob2>iirc it was both originally
01:23<spal>so Linode outsources the datacenter work to other companies?
01:23<Fieldy>seems like a pretty reasonable list
01:23<bob2>yes linode owns no datacenters
01:23<Fieldy>spal: no but if I did, i'd just use a different port / SSL only
01:23<bd_>spal: linode's not big enough to build their own DCs from scratch. They just lease space, power, cooling, and network in existing DCs
01:24<bd_>Fieldy: atlanta doesn't do application protocol inspection, and there's no actual policy against running IRC in Atlanta. You just have to change the port, is all.
01:24<spal>what's an example of big enough VPS: slicehost, rackspace, etc.?
01:24<bob2>slicehost is not
01:24<Fieldy>i don't thinke ven rackspace is
01:24<spal>and I found Linode to be the cheapest. I wonder why it isn't big enough.
01:24<bd_>IIRC rackspace builds their own DCs. But they did that before they bought slicehost.
01:24<bd_>Amazon is certainly big enough...
01:25<bd_>spal: because if they spent all that money on the huge capital outlay needed to build a GINOURMOUS datacenter they wouldn't be the cheapest anymore?
01:25<bd_>also the DC would go mostly unused for at least a few years
01:25<bd_>I suppose they could sublease space out to other providers though. But then it's not really Linode anymore, is it? :)
01:26<spal>is this a channel of linode users or are there linode staff also in this channel?
01:26<bd_>the ops are staff
01:26<Fieldy>staff too it's just late in the US
01:26<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. Official Linode contact information:
01:26<Fieldy>heh (?)
01:26<bd_>it's 1:26 am where most of the staff are
01:26<bd_>the rest of the staff are probably paying more attention to the ticket queue than IRC
01:26<bd_>(hi, restelow!)
01:27<bd_>also tomorrow's a holiday in the US
01:27<bd_>or, well, today at this point
01:29<spal>if i a deploy a machine of 10 GB disk only (while I am allowed 20 GB), can I use the remaining 10 GB in my quota somehow?
01:29-!-andrew [~andrew@] has quit [Quit: Ping Timeout]
01:30<bd_>spal: you can resize later, or create a new image and attach it as well, or I guess use it for images that you don't have attached (some kind of homegrown backup system?)
01:30<bd_>you can't attach it directly to another linode, although you _can_ copy images back and forth between linodes
01:31<spal>so if I use two images, they'll appear as two disks in /dev right?
01:31<bd_>If you attach them both to your config profile, yes
01:32<bd_>you'll need to mount them of course
01:32<bd_>fstab etc etc
01:32<spal>I'll just go for a full 20 GB disk. I don't think I need backup images.
01:33<bd_>backup images aren't really a practical way to do things anyway, since linode (still!) doesn't do snapshots for image clones, so you need to umount before cloning, and stay umounted (or read-only) until the clone finishes :/
01:38-!-onats [~onats@] has joined #linode
01:39<spal>so if I mess something up, I can't revert to an earlier snapshot?
01:39<bd_>you can either use linode's backup service (for an extra fee) or hack something together on your own :)
01:40<spal>the getting started guide says, "We strongly recommend sticking with the default swap image size, as allowing your Linode to go heavily into swap can seriously degrade performance in an environment where disk IO is shared among virtual machines."
01:40<spal>the default swap is 256 MB. However, I was about to set it to 512 MB.
01:41<spal>is my intention contradicting the guide? I couldn't correctly interpret what they mean by "heavily into swap"?
01:41<spal>Does it mean, less swap implies heavy swap usage or more swap?
01:42-!-SamT [] has joined #linode
01:42-!-SamT_ [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
01:45<bdube>it means, roughly, that more swap makes the kernel worse at managing its business. the default works well on linodes.
01:45<bdube>what do you plan to do with it?
01:45<bd_>spal: basically, if you have 256mb of stuff swapped out
01:46<bdube>and what distro?
01:46<bd_>chances are you're spending all of your time swapping stuff in and out and not getting anything done
01:46<spal>Debian, I'll run about 5 websites.
01:46<bd_>so better to keep your swapfile small, so, if you _do_ end up in this situation, the system runs out of memory, crashes the offending program, and recovers faster
01:47<spal>so you are saying that I should stick to 256 MB swap. If I use 512 MB swap, it can degrade performance?
01:47<spal>bdube, I am using Debian and I'll run blogs and websites on it.
01:48-!-wkl [~wkl@] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
01:48<bd_>I'm saying if you set it to 512, you'll never actually use that much, and if you _do_ use that much your system's already basically dead in the water and you're just delaying its recovery.
01:48<@psandin>Any swap can degrade performance, the more swap you have the longer and worse it can be
01:48-!-wkl [~wkl@] has joined #linode
01:52<spal>is it true even for a personal laptop? I've always given 512 MB swap on my personal laptop.
01:52<bd_>laptops are a bit different - you want around the same amount of swap as physical RAM so you can do suspend-to-disk (aka hibernation)
01:52<bdube>different use case
01:53<bd_>and with a personal computer it's less of a problem having to reboot it when it starts swapping heavily
01:53<bd_>after all either you're right there to reboot it (in which case the outage is short) or you're not (in which case nobody notices the outage)
01:53<Solver>swap can be useful to avoid an OOM. the useful ration of memory:swap is much lower than it once was
01:53<bd_>Solver: OTOH an OOM is often exactly what you want - it's arguably better than the whole system grinding to a halt
01:54<Solver>bd_: depends on the situation imho.
01:54<bd_>yes, there are exceptions
01:54<@psandin>Call me odd if you must, I'd rather OOM and be done with it than have a slow death by thrashing
01:54<Solver>bd_: an OOM effectively leaves the system is an unstable state so a reboot is probabhly required
01:54<bd_>Solver: no, an OOM sends a SIGKILL to some group of processes that were using a lot of memory.
01:54<bd_>the kernel's just fine
01:54<Solver>bd_: exactly - so you don't immediately know what was killed
01:54<@psandin>unrelated services might recover, which is better than everything being hosed due to thrashing
01:54<Solver>it is rarely worth bothing to find out
01:54<Solver>rebooting is a better option
01:55<Solver>egro - it leaves the system in an unstable state
01:55<bd_>Solver: I suppose. But if you're not there to reboot it, it might be able to keep running for a while.
01:55<bd_>actually it's pretty likely to be able to keep running
01:55<Solver>runing after an OOM can be very bad in some situations
01:55<bd_>on a LAMP sort of setup, mysql's memory usage is more or less constant, the apache master server's process memory usage is constant, so you'll have some child process being SIGKILLed
01:55<Solver>if you have a complex app and part of it has fallen over the behaviour could be inpleasant
01:55<spal>any such issues between choosing Debian 32-bit or Debian 64-bit?
01:56<Solver>fallen over because it was killed by the OOM killer, I mean
01:56<bd_>spal: if you don't know, pick 32-bit
01:56<bd_>Solver: Sure. But for 99% of people you'll either find out right away or it'll keep running just fine.
01:56-!-seanh-ansca [] has joined #linode
01:56<spal>bd_, I don't know if there is any difference or not. I use 64-bit at home because I've got a 64-bit processor.
01:56<bd_>and at the very least you get a nice log entry
01:56<spal>bd_, why do you recommend 32-bit? what's the advantage?
01:56<bd_>spal: 64-bit uses more RAM for relatively little benefit, unless you have more than 4G of total RAM
01:56<Solver>I recommend retaining a small amount of swap to avoid most OM conditions
01:57<spal>bd_, okay. makes sense.
01:57<bd_>Solver: Sure, a small amount is good, to let you swap out truly cold data. Things like init's working set.
01:57<Solver>with a samll amounto f sawp you'll avoid most OOMs and still not thrash badly
01:57<bd_>Just, not an excessive amount. The point of swap is _not_ to avoid OOMs, because if you actually use it to avoid OOMs, you _will_ be thrashing.
01:57<bd_>The point is to let you free up valuable physical RAM for something more useful than holding the list of getty processes :)
01:58<Solver>bd_: I don't recommend having so much swap you;ll be in swap hell
01:58<Solver>maybe 2GB is reasonable for a 4-8GB system, excluding laptops as others have noted
01:59<Solver>bd_: yes it is valuable to 'swap commonly used memory for rarely used memory'
02:00<Solver>of course you can use swappiness to good effect too
02:01<bdube>I dropped swappiness to 5 on linode 512
02:01<Solver>the % of ram that needs to be swapped out before you thrash is lower than it used to be for disk since the data transfer rates have not grown as fast as memory or disk storage capacity
02:01<Solver>ssd may change that equation - I can't tried swapping to ssd to see how it performs
02:03<spal>I installed Debian 6 and it uses the 3.0 kernel already. :) I don't think Debian 6 distribution provides the 3.0 kernel. Has linode customized the distro?
02:04<bdube>you can choose the kernel in your profile
02:04<bd_>spal: linode provides the kernel, the rest is vanilla. It's possible to provide your own kernel (including the distribution kernel), but not recommended.
02:07<spal>I've got an IP address for my linode instance. Will this IP address remain same between reboots? I need to make DNS entries. Hence, the question.
02:08<bd_>Yes, it'll remain the same unless you choose to move to a different DC at some point in the future (this won't happen unless you specifically ask for it in a ticket)
02:09<bd_>The default images use DHCP to configure things, but this is just to make deployment easier, you can go and change that to a static config if you want
02:11<spal>If I enable backups, would it cost me? If not, why isn't backup enabled by default?
02:11<bd_>it does cost you
02:11<spal>okay. what's the link to see the available DCs?
02:21<dcraig>don't pick the slow one

02:34<spal>I don't see /etc/hostname file on my Debian instance. I wanted to change the hostname to something meaningful.
02:36<Solver>add one in - and /etc/mailname if you want
02:36<Solver>also remember to look in /etc/default/dhcpcd - and tell it to not set the hostname from dhcp
02:36*Solver built a new linode from deb 6 on the weekend :)
02:39<onats>hi guys, just a question, is it possible to share a linode management to another user that signed up independently?
02:40<kyhwana>onats: I assume you mean with their own login and you have a different one, both managing the same linode?
02:40<onats>kyhwana, yes
02:41<kyhwana>AFAIK that's not possible. You can add a different user account to your manage tho
02:42<dcraig>it'd be neat if you could grant access to someone else's existing user name
02:42<kyhwana>(manager/account/user and permissions)
02:42<dcraig>then I wouldn't have to log out and log back in as someone else
02:43<onats>just thinking if its possible. coz i might be booting another 512 but for a different customer
02:45-!-crazedfred [] has joined #linode
02:45<crazedfred>Hello. I'm having a problem getting postfix to talk to SASL. I've been told to turn off chroot, but I have done so and the problem persists. Relevant logs/postconf is here:
02:49-!-ktabic [] has joined #linode
02:54<bdube>crazedfred: did you restart saslauthd when you restarted postfix? and is saslauthd configured to listen on a socket?
02:55<crazedfred>bdube: yes, and not sure (how can I find out?)
02:55<crazedfred>I tested saslauthd and confirmed it is working, let me check my notes
02:55-!-tyler [] has quit [Quit: CGI:IRC]
02:56<bdube>crazedfred: I ask because of the no such file or directory error, but perhaps postfix can't find your sasl conf
02:59<crazedfred>saslauthd[12246]: ipc_init : listening on socket: /var/spool/postfix/var/run/saslauthd/mux
02:59<linbot>New news from forums: Why not to have Premium Linode Accounts? in Feature Request/Bug Report <>
02:59<crazedfred>looks like it is :)
03:01<marius>but I like my premium account!
03:02<marius>It sounds like facebook gold xD
03:02<@psandin>don't worry marius we know you're "special"

03:03*psandin paging Perihelion to #linode
03:03*psandin slips away
03:03<crazedfred>bdube: hang on, after a reboot my testsaslauthd command is now returning "connect() : No such file or directory"
03:04<crazedfred>bdube: I'm guessing I have to fix that first, but s/etc/saslauthd.conf still looks fine...
03:04<linbot>New news from forums: Geological Load Balancing in Sales Questions and Answers <>
03:07<crazedfred>bdube: Ah, I tried "sudo testsaslauthd -f /var/spool/postfix/var/run/saslauthd/mux" and that worked.
03:07<crazedfred>But obviously postfix still doesn't work
03:09<bdube>crazedfred: looking at my own sasl config isn't helping much
03:11<crazedfred>Yea, this is just super frustrating because I've been working on it for some time, and "No such file or directory" is rather useless
03:12<crazedfred>I've disabled the chroot, but maybe the fact that I had to use "sudo testsaslauthd -f /var/spool/postfix/var/run/saslauthd/mux" is a clue?
03:12<crazedfred>aka, postfix is trying the wrong socket?
03:13<bdube>the wrong socket or has the wrong permissions for the correct socket
03:14<crazedfred>I'm afraid I wouldn't know how to find out either, however.
03:14<G>wow nice, hit 37Mb/s on Dallas' IPv6 network :P
03:15-!-Boohemian [] has quit [Quit: Going to eat and then (hopefully) have sex. g'nite!]
03:15<Peng>bits or bytes?
03:15<G>pretty sure that's bits, unless Linode doesn't know the difference
03:16<Peng>Not very much, then.
03:16-!-kraz_ [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
03:16<Peng>Though finding even 37 Mbps of IPv6 traffic is impressive, I suppose.
03:16<Fieldy>agree that's quite a bit
03:16<G>(rsync between LA & Dallas)
03:17<Peng>I got 10 times that between LA and Dallas once.
03:17<Peng>(wget -O /dev/null to test it)
03:18<bdube>crazedfred: I'd check the effective permissions that are in play
03:18<crazedfred>bdube: how?
03:21<bdube>crazedfred: something like 'ps aux | egrep "post|sasl"' to see who is running what, and 'ls -l /path/to/socket'
03:21-!-kraz [] has joined #linode
03:21<bdube>might need root on that last 'ls'
03:23<crazedfred>bdube: raw version easier to read
03:23<crazedfred>dunno why a pastebin site enforces claustrophobic text wrapping >< lol
03:24<bdube>crazedfred: that looks fine to me, but I'm asleep
03:24<crazedfred>I hear ya :/
03:24<crazedfred>I've been stuck on this for weeks, figured I'd ask Linode folks as well
03:24<crazedfred>It's supoosed to be dead-simple
03:24<crazedfred>If I don't get it soon I will probably reformat and start over, the nuke-it-from-orbit strategy
03:26<bdube>crazedfred: maybe it's sasl complaining about not being able to talk to ldap
03:26<crazedfred>well, if I can make saslauthd work, but need to add that socket option, where do I go from there?
03:27<bdube>the option you added to testsaslauthd? I don't think you need to tell postfix about that
03:28<bdube>can you verify ldap? it could be sasl<-->ldap borking
03:28<crazedfred>but if saslauthdtest is working (it returns success), then I'd assume something with the postfix config is wrong
03:29<crazedfred>$ sudo testsaslauthd -f /var/spool/postfix/var/run/saslauthd/mux -u "" -p "examplePassword"
03:29<crazedfred>0: OK "Success."
03:29<bdube>good point
03:29-!-sludge321 [] has joined #linode
03:30<crazedfred>said example account/password is in LDAP, and sasl is returning success on right password (and incorrect on wrong password)
03:30<crazedfred>which means it has to be correctly hitting ldap
03:30<bdube>then I think you're on to something. I don't know where you'd tell postfix about that
03:32<bdube>I have a very similar set up and I don't specify a path to the socket
03:33<crazedfred>I'm trying to find where one would be listed
03:33<crazedfred>of course this all begs the question, why would mine be different from anyone's -.-
03:33<crazedfred>HMMM: "Some distributions require the user postfix to be member of a special group e.g. sasl, otherwise it will not be able to access the saslauthd socket directory."

03:41<onats>hey guys, can anyone give me a sample of a popular app that's hosted on linode?
03:41<crazedfred>onats: actually the internet runs on linodes, don't tell anyone
03:42<onats>haha cmon. I'm trying to convince a customer to move from own server to this
03:42<kyhwana>onats: Amazon's cloud stuff!
03:42<bdube>yay, cloud
03:44<crazedfred>onats: sorry I'd be helpful if I could. generally I've seen linode offered as a much more cost-effective option than other VPS solutions
03:44<onats>crazedfred, sure. i know it is. but you know some people have the old school mindset that its 'safer' and more 'reliable' to have their own server
03:45-!-petedunham [~mehmet@] has joined #linode
03:45<petedunham>Anybody using Linode for OpenCart hosting? Sure of that there are a lot of people.. I would like to hear your experiences..
03:45<bdube>crazedfred: in your second paste, the socket path is right there as an option to saslauthd. I don't think postfix needs to know separately.
03:46<petedunham>Stack is going to be PHP+MySQL+Nginx.
03:46<crazedfred>bdube: oh :(
03:47<crazedfred>bdube: the theory being since saslauthd is running with that socket, we have to assume postfix can talk to it?
03:47<crazedfred>in which case, wtf is postfix doing -.-
03:48<spal>Just like Apache is very popular as a web server, what's commonly used for setting up email?
03:48<bdube>crazedfred: well, postfix would talk to saslauthd and saslauthd knows about its own socket
03:48<kyhwana>spal: dovecot/postfix?
03:48<crazedfred>bdube: makes sense, but then why is postfix returning a sasl error is my question
03:48-!-Cypher100 [] has quit []
03:49<spal>kyhwana, dovecot and postfix are two different servers, right?
03:49<kyhwana>spal: er yes, you need one to receive mail and one to send
03:50<bdube>mail transfer and mail delivery
03:50<crazedfred>I'm trying to get them to play nice as we speak :)
03:51<bdube>crazedfred: I don't know :/
03:51<crazedfred>bdube: haha yeah, me neither :(
03:53<crazedfred>petedunham: never heard of opencart, but everyone uses some variant of the LAMP stack....
03:53<bdube>crazedfred: but it *seems* to be a permissions issue
03:53<bob2>or it doesn't matter, since any crappy php app will run equally well
03:53<crazedfred>bdube: agreed.
03:53<crazedfred>bdube: you see why I'm so stuck?! lol :(
03:54<bdube>crazedfred: nuking might just land you back here at the same issue
03:54<crazedfred>indeed :(
03:54<crazedfred>the config guides for postfix/sasl are like 12 lines that say "do what I just did"
03:54<crazedfred>and the email discussion lists were unhelpful/snarky
03:54<petedunham>crazedfred: Yes. So, there is no much difference actually, it is one of most popular ecommerce package like Magento, osCommerce, etc.
03:55<petedunham>I mean, it is LAMP stack also.
03:55<bob2>crazedfred, almost certainly you missed a step or copypasted wrongly - start from the start and check each step
03:56<crazedfred>bob2: I went back through 2 guides looking at each config file, it seems elementary and as far as I can tell all config files match
03:56<crazedfred>also restarted all 3 services, and later the linode
03:56<bob2>I didn't say that
03:56<bob2>re-read the ONE guide that you were actually following
03:56<bob2>if you were trying to mix up two, you're probably boned anyway
03:56<crazedfred>petedunham: yea, looks like a standard CMS on PHP, you should have no problem running that basically anywhere
03:57<crazedfred>bob2: yeah I am following
03:57<bob2>don't do that
03:57<bob2>follow or one from the linode library
03:57<crazedfred>can you elaborate on why?
03:57<petedunham>crazedfred: Agree.
03:57<bob2>because they are complete and OS-specific
03:58<petedunham>I am in between to choose a VPS provider at the moment. I may be using Linude..
03:58<bob2>whereas the postfix SASL README is not complete or os-specific
03:58<kyhwana>petedunham: hmm.. whats the other VPS?
03:59<crazedfred>bob2: can you help me find one that uses specifically postfix/sasl? A lot seem to configure postfix to talk to mysql...
03:59<kyhwana>Does it have the same features as linode?
03:59<petedunham>kyhwana: Some friends recommend some others like Hetzner, Proplay, Slicehost, etc.etc.
04:00<kyhwana>hmm, lots of people leaving slicehost fsr..
04:00<bob2>crazedfred, meh
04:00<bob2>slicehost is being wound up
04:00<bob2>so that's not a useful option
04:00<petedunham>kyhwana: Some similar services and I am not a edge user actually. I need only LAMP stack, and it is not hig volume business at the moment. So, easy to choose.
04:00<bob2>the other two sound made up
04:00<kyhwana>well, there are stackscripts for LAMP, etc
04:01<bob2>crazedfred, what backend are you hoping to use then
04:01<crazedfred>bob2: ldap. sasl can already correctly auth against ldap, postfix is evidently not talking to sasl correctly
04:01<petedunham>kyhwana: Why do they leave? Acutally I didn't like when Rackspace bought out them.. Their web site is something like fancy.. I like simple things. So, linode takes my attraction.
04:01<kyhwana>petedunham: I guess because of what changed when rackspace bought them
04:02<petedunham>kyhwana: I think so. It was friendly before I think. I have no idea at the moment. Anyway
04:02<petedunham>kyhwana: Stackscripts.
04:03<bdube>what, no trigger for that?
04:04<petedunham>Any PHP+MySQL+Nginx.. But not big deal if there is no..

04:07<bob2>petedunham, then what did you want to know?
04:08<petedunham>I got my answer actually, just wanted to hear from somebody who using opencart..
04:08<petedunham>There are some companies like Linode, they are opencart friendly and/or support open cart etc..
04:08<petedunham>So anyway..
04:08<kyhwana>Hmm, I don't think so
04:09<kyhwana>Linode's are unmanaged.. stackscripts are about as close as you're going to get ;)
04:09<petedunham>kyhwana: Alright.
04:09<kyhwana>linode is opencart friendly in that you can install it and do whatever you want

05:49<gerryvdm>mm, how do i login to the forum

05:49<Typo>read what the auth screen says
05:50<Typo>the popup i mean

05:51<gerryvdm>i'll create two feature requests then :) one for a pdf invoice, one for a user friendly forum solution :)
05:52<AlexC_>gerryvdm: why can't you just print to PDF like normal folk?

05:53<gerryvdm>there is

05:55<rnowak>reading is hard
05:56<gerryvdm>Peng, already an improvement
05:56<gerryvdm>or make a html version of the invoice mail

05:58<Peng>gerryvdm: I'm just thinking...Unconditionally adding a PDF to all invoice emails seems unlikely. Putting a checkbox in the manager to attach PDFs -- or HTML -- would be an option, of course, and HTML checkboxes are common, but adding options always sucks. A link seems like a good compromise to me.
05:59<Peng>Actually, now that I think about it, a PDF for a one-page invoice would hardly be a huge file, so unconditionally attaching it wouldn't be *that* bad.
06:00<bob2>tl;dr ask in a ticket
06:00<gerryvdm>yeah it weights 24kb now
06:01<zibri>it's bad practice. if people want pdf versions of the invoices (ugh), a url would be the best solution.
06:01<Peng>bob2: I suggested the forum.
06:02<rnowak>"bad practice"? According to?
06:02<gerryvdm>anyway the problem with the plain-text version probably is that many mail clients dont use a proportional font
06:02<zibri>the internet community
06:02<rnowak>oh, well of course!
06:02<bob2>by problem you mean awesomeness right

06:03<rainman>when the time comes for tax work, i just go to the manager and get the pdf of all needed invoices, much faster than going through my inbox
06:03<rainman>the mail is for me just to skim whether linode did something outragious

06:37<bob2>renumber the vpn

06:40<chesty>you can probably push a route from the openvpn server config

06:42<spal>or where else would it deploy.
06:42<vai>Is london174 down?
06:42<@akerl>spal: You have 1 Linode with X resources. Deploy uses a specified amount of disk (you choose), and adds a Linux distro disk image. If you have available disk, you can do this more than once on the same Linode.

06:43<@akerl>Only one profile can be booted at a time on each Linode, but you can have multiple disk images.
06:43<JediMaster>chesty the problem is that 10.0.x.0 needs to nat through to tun0 to get to (only)
06:44<@akerl>The difference between deploy and rebuild is that deploy will use free space on your node to add a new distro image, where rebuild will delete all existing images on that node and replace them with the new one
06:44<vai>aww looks like london174 did go down :(
06:44<chesty>iptables -t nat -I POSTROUTING -o tun0 -j MASQUERADE

07:09<Solver>as far as a home link is comcerned i stopped caring somewhere above 10Mb/s
07:09<Solver>at least for the current state of the Internet
07:10<Peng>I still care because I can't get 10 Mbps *up*.
07:10<Peng>s/can't get/don't have/
07:10<Solver>we were on 10Mb/s down in canada - but only 512kb/s up
07:11<Solver>so much for the old 10:1 rule
07:11<rnowak>I do enjoy my 200Mbps home connection here (at mom's), and my 1/1Gbps at my place. I'd probably die if I'd have to go back to crapdsl
07:11<Solver>I would have been happier with 7 down, 1 up
07:12<Solver>australia is rolling out 1Gb/s to 90%+ of the population
07:12<Solver>it'll probably arrive here about the time we leave again :)

07:12<rnowak>too bad your link to the rest of the world will still make it crap :p
07:13<amitz>a solution is to instill enough nationalism to discourage people in consuming foreign content.
07:13<rnowak>In Lund (at Lund University), students can get 100/100 Mbps for 8USD/mo \o/
07:14<Solver>the are rolling out additional external capacity on a regular basis but it isn't like being in the heart of north america (as we were before)
07:14<Solver>rnowak: impressive :)
07:14<amitz>I used to have 57.6kbps for around that amount too \o/
07:14<Solver>europe benefits from population density of course - australia is >150% the size of the entire EU
07:15<Solver>with a population of 22Mil
07:15<rnowak>1000/1000 is 130USD/mo by Lund Via Europa - LKF, also using SUNET (Swedish University Network) as backbone
07:15<Solver>I'd be up for living in europe but my wife doesn't want to
07:15<Solver>not long term but a few years would be cool
07:15<rnowak>any idea where you'd want to settle down in europe then?
07:16<rnowak>amitz: I'd take my interweb connection and cold, over heat and worse-than-dialup any day :p
07:16<Solver>rnowak: anywhere with interesting ancient sites to visit on the weekends would work for me :)
07:17<Solver>I was going to go to europe when I met my wife and moved to north america. Glad I went to canada though - it is a great place
07:17<amitz>rnowak: hey hey, that's dial up! please get the fact straight! you're libeling!
07:17<rnowak>Solver: nice part about europe is, everything is so relatively close, you can just do weekend trips if you got the cash etc

07:18<rnowak>heh :)
07:18<amitz>of course the bad thing about europe is that english can only carry you so far...? :-p
07:18<Solver>we plan to return to north america in a few years
07:18<Solver>amitz: I understand that in certain countries work places are often multilingual
07:19<rnowak>amitz: you'll find most refusal in germany and france, and it isn't because they don't know it, it is because they are being assholes
07:19<Solver>i know aussies in Germany with limited german who communicate in english at work
07:19<amitz>Solver: of course, but the places you're living in, etc?
07:19<Solver>my wife is fluent in french but I'm not
07:19<amitz>rnowak: or so I heard. switzerland too, although I'm not sure of the reason.
07:19<rnowak>close enough to germany and france, there's your reason
07:20<amitz>rnowak: oh, heh.
07:20<rnowak>although that was a joke, people in switzerland are generally friendly

07:21<amitz>I'm under the impression that german is somehow the more universal lingua france in europe? at least the western part excluding england?
07:22*Solver was impressed at how few people spoke English in South america - i found it refreshing :)
07:23<rnowak>a german friend moved to sweden in feb, his swedish is still pretty much nonexistant and he is managing with english ;p
07:23<rnowak>nonexistent, as well
07:23<Solver>but I only went to one country (Venezuela)
07:23<amitz>eat that you germs!
07:24<amitz>Solver: I believe the 5 languages of UN will carry us far indeed, (english, spanish, france, german, chinese)
07:24<Solver>yeah but learning all 5 would be hard :)
07:25<amitz>small detail ;_)
07:26<Solver>amitz: do you speak any languages other than Indonesian and English?
07:26<rnowak>he speaks English?
07:26<amitz>Solver: conversationally? no, unfortunately. :-/
07:26<Solver>maybe I don't :)
07:27<amitz>rnowak, meets cactus. Kiss the cactus please!
07:27*Solver would like to learn Arabic but unless I was to go and live in th emiddeast (less likely now) there isn't a lot of point
07:28<amitz>Some languages I understand passively, some... probably under a life and death situation :-p
07:28<spal>what's the "SOA Email" in DNS Manager?
07:28<rnowak>I know enough arabic to get me out of tough situations as long as they are strong believers, also enough cursing to put me into the mentioned situation
07:28<spal>what does SOA stand for?
07:29<rnowak>how does google work
07:29<amitz>Some languages, I got them mixed up, the vocabularies. I know the meaning, but it takes effort for me to recall which language is that.
07:29*Solver went to the middeast and communicated in arabic a little 20 years go
07:29<amitz>Solver: oh, hah. If god allows ;-)
07:30<Solver>amitz: very useful phrase to know as it is widely used in arabic speaking countries :)
07:30<rnowak>spal: you should put in a working email there that you can be reached at, it should also not contain dots

07:35<spal>Why is the @ turned into a dot? And what service uses the SOA email and turns the @ into a dot?

07:38<Bret>14400 isnt it?

08:42<jake>I used to have two accounts, one for buisness and one for personal, I stopped using personal one a while ago but wanted to create a new linode but can't seem to log in anymore and password recovery says emailed me but has not.

08:43<Bret>ahh come on, I don't want geocities :-(
08:43<spal>I changed the nameservers for my domain. I see that I get one output from: dig A +trace but a different output from: dig A - Why is it so?

08:44<Peng>jake: I don't believe they get disabled.

08:45<spal>okay. just confirming. i've lost time entering email address there by mistake. :P
08:46<jake>wonder if it is because I am in Austria atm and normally log in via UK

08:47<praetorian>doubt it.. are you sure you arent getting the email

12:47<HorizonXP>hi, i'm trying to migrate my services from slicehost to linode, and i've run into a bit of trouble with the DNS
12:47<HorizonXP>i imported the zones into the DNS manager, changed the IPs as appropriate, and activated them here at Linode
12:48<HorizonXP>I deactivated/deleted the DNS entries at Slicehost at the same time
12:48<HorizonXP>now, when I try to ping my domain from my machines here, it says unknown host, which indicates that the DNS entries were likely removed, but not updated.
12:48<HorizonXP>any idea how long I should be waiting? also, what would've been a better way to do this, to have avoided this downtime?
12:49<nDuff>HorizonXP,, you should have added them in linode, then changed the servers at the registrar, and only after that had time to propagate, _then_ removed from your old DNS server

12:51<nDuff>HorizonXP, ...ideally, letting things propagate out (through whatever caching DNS servers various end-users' ISPs may be using) is a matter of at least a few days to be confident.

12:59<HorizonXP>crap, yeah, now I see it
12:59<HorizonXP>umm... here's another question: any recommendations on domain registrar?
13:00<HorizonXP>i'm using Netfirms right now, but i'm up for renewal in a month or so
13:00<HorizonXP>just wondering if there are better alternatives
13:00<Alan_>I've been using for quite a while
13:00<Alan_>never had a problem, but haven't shopped around much
13:00<Alan_>they were pretty cheap when i started with them, i think they still are
13:01<HorizonXP>2.99 a year, 4.99 /yr to transfer
13:01<HorizonXP>definitely better than the 11.99 that netfirms wants to renew
13:02<Fieldy>namecheap works good here too. stay away from AIT / needhosting

13:07<HorizonXP>hmm... interesting
13:07<HorizonXP>the price isn't any better
13:07<HorizonXP>namecheap wants $12/yr for my .ca domain too
13:07<HorizonXP>worth transferring for the same amount of money?
13:07<pjbrunet>How I picked Namecheap years ago, I read 100s of recommendations on WHT and Namecheap seemed to have the most recommendations.
13:07<HorizonXP>i mean, netfirms has been fine....

13:09<Alan_>how i picked namecheap about 7 years ago (i think): it wasn't godaddy
13:09<pjbrunet>Wasn't Godaddy recently sold to a new owner? Or did I imagine that.
13:10<rnowak>did he kill an elephant as well?
13:10<Alan_>i don't tend to keep up to date on this kind of stuff
13:10<Alan_>namecheap is the only provider i've not felt a need to switch away from, so i haven't switched away from them

13:39<tyler>Hi all. Anyone here?
13:39<Fieldy>DeaneVenske: it makes sense however it will be frustrating if you have not set up snort before. it comes with a fairly crappy default ruleset and you spend a lot of time tuning it up. then you look at addon rulesets like emerging threats (much better, but still has to be watched).
13:39-!-vraa [] has joined #linode

13:40<tyler>can you guys tell me why when I type hostname -f I get: hostname: Name or service not known ?
13:40<tyler>hostname works.
13:41<Fieldy>DeaneVenske: in addition without having full packet capture for some time period so that you can pull the packets for a given alert, you'll have to trust snort, and IDS systems can be wrong

19:21<rnowak>all of it

19:27-!-message144 [] has joined #linode
19:27<bob2>because certain FORUM SOFTWARES can only handle N rows in a database
19:28<tolle>Haha.. for real?
19:28<Obsidian|server>all of them only can, duh
19:28<tolle>Well, thats true for all. Doubt anything can handle infinite rows.
19:28<tolle>But where that becomes a issue.
19:29<Obsidian|server>IIRC, phpBB3 uses INT(11)
19:29<SleePy>That becomes the issue of the database backend more than a limitation of the software.
19:29<bob2>yes, php authors are muppets
19:29<Obsidian|server>unsigned, of course
19:29<bob2>google for "int(11)"
19:29-!-emad [] has left #linode []
19:30<tolle>Well, I guess I shouldn't be surprised.
19:30<Obsidian|server>there's been a very limited number of people that went over that on the posts table iirc
19:30<seanh-ansca>why in the world is avahi installed by default in the ubuntu 10.04 install o_0
19:31<Obsidian|server>and then they just did an ALTER_TABLE on the primary key and moved to bigint
19:31<Obsidian|server>which buys you 2^64 rows

19:32<tolle>theres like a freaking billion options and checkboxes and shit.
19:32<tolle>Takes a fucking year to read up on what everything does.
19:33<Obsidian|server>think that's bad, go try messing with joomla's admin panel
19:33<tolle>I've stayed away from joomla
19:33<tolle>I was offered a job related to that for a few months a while back but I couldn't bother
19:33<seanh-ansca>or any reasonable drupal permissions page
19:33<SleePy>Yet if there isn't enough options, people complain that they want more features :|
19:34*SleePy adds the ability for his forum to check the milk in the fridge.
19:34<Obsidian|server>people ALWAYS want more features
19:34<Obsidian|server>"can you add a chat to it"

19:35<Obsidian|server>Cypher100: aab123456
19:35<tolle>or try some other forum software.
19:35<Obsidian|server>Cypher100: there you go
19:35<seanh-ansca>tolle: no newsgroup love?
19:35<tolle>Actually no. Not recently
19:35<tolle>Maybe I should get back to it.
19:35<tolle>Bringing the geekiness up to 11
19:36<SleePy>Why break what isn't broken. IRC and mailing lists work just fine. Its not real time so I can reply at my own time.
19:36<Cypher100>is there a list of bb boards I can use?
19:36<tolle>Cypher100: on wikipedia
19:36<seanh-ansca>you need to use it for something other than alt.bin in order to hit 11 :-p
19:36<Obsidian|server>Cypher100: avoid mybb btw

19:36-!-goose [] has joined #linode
19:36<tolle>Yeah, I'd use the most paranoid one
19:36<Obsidian|server>even came with an eval() 'sploit until a few weeks ago
19:37<tolle>I dont get how forums and blog stuff, like wordpress, can become such massive hogs
19:37<tolle>they do nothing at all. some simple sql queries and list them
19:37<Obsidian|server>tolle: they query in /loops/
19:37<Obsidian|server>tolle: wordpress uses queries in LOOPS.
19:37<kyhwana>remote execution vulnerabilities in dovecot <2.0.13
19:38<Cypher100>then there was a security bug
19:38<tolle>I guess thats where they go full retard.
19:38<Cypher100>so they patched it
19:38<Cypher100>then that patch made more holes
19:38<Cypher100>so they patch those
19:38<Cypher100>then the software gets bigger and bigger
19:38<Obsidian|server>it's spaghetti code
19:38-!-vraa [] has joined #linode
19:39<tolle>A forum is a rather trivial thing to code yourself.
19:39<tolle>If you have the time. And can be bothered
19:39<Obsidian|server>a lot of the time though, it's also because there's poor organization - add in some OO and JIT autoloading, it drops the amount of stuff included into memory pretty nicely
19:39-!-dvgrhl [] has joined #linode
19:39<Obsidian|server>tolle: and care enough to deal with various browser....problems.
19:39<tolle>Yes, theres that
19:39<seanh-ansca>Obsidian|server: s/problems/features
19:40<Obsidian|server>e.g. IE not knowing how to download files without executing them as HTML if it looks like HTML
19:40<tolle>"Ah sweet, 17:00 on friday, I hit the deadline!". Just to get a phonecall about something not working in IE
19:40<tolle>Because you forgot to check the shit
19:40<Obsidian|server>simple solution:
19:40<tolle>granted, 90% of the time its due to retarded users.
19:40<Obsidian|server>if useragent contains MSIE
19:40<Cypher100>I'm looking at the bb forum timeline
19:40<Obsidian|server>DENY ACCESS
19:40<Cypher100>funny how phpbb does not get any forks
19:40<kyhwana>tolle: "We don't support IE6"
19:41<Obsidian|server>Cypher100: it's had forks, but they've died out due to noody caring
19:41<SleePy>Down with IE6!
19:41<Obsidian|server>Cypher100: I've seen a couple that added the kitchen sink et al. They were ignored and discarded.
19:41<tolle>Not sure if I can nag on people running old browsers since I still run firefox 3.6
19:42<Obsidian|server>SleePy: I wonder how much of those statistics are ruined by the hordes of spambots cloaking themselves with IE5, IE6 UA's
19:42<tolle>Granted, it is still supported. ie6 is just plain shit
19:42<Cypher100>vBulletin is a blackhole in your wallet
19:43<tolle>Yeah, but fork out or find something else.
19:43<SleePy>Obsidian|server, I would say 2% just as a guess :D
19:43<tolle>What functionality do you even need?
19:43<Cypher100>xenforo looks nice, til I find out it's also $100+
19:43<rnowak>how dare they earn a living selling software
19:43<Obsidian|server>fluxbb might work for something lightweight, but it's very barebones
19:43<dzho>haha "selling"

19:46<Obsidian|server>lol automatic updates
19:46<Obsidian|server>worst idea /ever/
19:46<SleePy>Yea, because windows does great automatic updates :P
19:46<Obsidian|server>unless it does code signing, just wear a sign that says "screw me over please"
19:46<tolle>Automatic updates only make shit break without you touching anything
19:46<Obsidian|server>all it takes is a DNS poisoning and you're SOL.

19:47<Obsidian|server>"Oh, you just got automatically updated with a fake infected update. Sucks to be you."
19:47<SleePy>I would hope that before processing the auto update it checks a cert or at least a ping back.
19:47<rnowak>tolle: o/
19:47<Obsidian|server>SleePy: i personally like code signing, but https would work too tbh.
19:47<rnowak>we do write it ourselves and push to production, but... o/
19:48<tolle>rnowak: well tbh, no body actually "test" their code before deploying it. But you are supposed to say you do.

19:49<tolle>So the dashboard will be just as freaking slow?
19:49<Obsidian|server>tolle: that's what I do - I have my custom code hooked up to fire off git pulls
19:49<SleePy>Ok.. Can people tell me why Calendar is considered a forum feature?
19:49<Obsidian|server>tolle: my admin page has a button I can click to trigger a git update, and another button that triggers a revert to previous commit :D
19:50<tolle>I have no fucking idea
19:50<rnowak>seanh-ansca: damn straight
19:50<Obsidian|server>SleePy: kitchen sink
19:50<seanh-ansca>rnowak: stay buggy my friends :D
19:50<SleePy>Obsidian|server, Thats helpful :P
19:50<tolle>Obsidian|server: The revert button is huge, red and with the words "PANIC!" on it?
19:50<SleePy>The bb article on wiki has calendar as one of the major features. Just trying to figure that out.
19:50<Obsidian|server>SleePy: it's the kitchen sink mentality
19:50<tolle>SleePy: What does it even mean?
19:51<Obsidian|server>tolle: Damn straight it is. Also, there's a giant warning message on the update page too
19:51<tolle>That you can check a calendar, or that you can schedule events?
19:51*Obsidian|server goes to find the screenshot
19:51<SleePy>I think just the first is required.
19:51<tolle>Skip the screenshot, just give us access
19:52<Obsidian|server>Ahahahaa no.
19:52<Obsidian|server>not like it'd let you do anything anyways. It's locked to specific IPs :)
19:52<Cypher100>is there any good opensource forum software out there?
19:52<MTecknology>Cypher100: phpbb?
19:52<MTecknology>pretty popular anyway
19:52<tolle>A few friends and I from univ have a homepage that some older peeps made, that shit is done in shellscripts and perl. With Makefiles for the homepage. Its a freaking nightmare to change anything
19:53<bob2>tolle, ikiwiki
19:53<rnowak>compile it, compile it all
19:53<Obsidian|server>tolle: :D
19:53<tolle>but it was made around 96 or so, I keep saying we should wait untill people born in 96 starts at the univ to replace it
19:53<Obsidian|server>Cypher100: phpBB3's a solid choice anyways. the audit by sektioneins helps
19:53<SleePy>Obsidian|server, :o

19:55<rnowak>You sure have a lot in common with that guy.
19:55<tolle>Fucking domain campers
19:56<tolle>They should have made registering a domain cost 200bucks in initial cost or something
19:57<rnowak>or require legitimate use
19:57<tolle>Something atleast
19:57<Obsidian|server>it should just be able to have it taken away if not used

20:04<Obsidian|server>before you make a choice though, look at the security history of what you pick
20:04<Obsidian|server>secunia's got good records
20:04<rnowak>SleePy: are you responsible for the spaghetti code? ;p
20:04<tolle>Is there any forum software where you can search the forum and it takes you to the actual place where the string is located? Not just the entire 200 page thread?
20:05<SleePy>I contributed some? But I blame somebody else for not fixing it first :D
20:05<seanh-ansca>iirc in phpbb you get a thread link and a post link
20:05<Obsidian|server>tolle: phpbb3, mysql engine for search
20:05<rnowak>SleePy: nice save, shove the blame on others!
20:05<tolle>Ah I must have missed it.
20:05<Obsidian|server>not sure if phpbb native engine does it, I think it does
20:05<Obsidian|server>mysql search requires myisam tables though, for fulltext indexing
20:06<SleePy>rnowak, Of course. I blame the person before me for the problems.
20:06<SleePy>Although I am helping fix the spaghetti code slowly.
20:06<tolle>Once stuff goes spaghetti, it seldom goes back.
20:07<Obsidian|server>well, not without scrapping a ton of code and getting rid of half the development team
20:07<SleePy>A complete rewrite using a framework ;)
20:07<tolle>There are no such thing as a temporary fix. Its just permanent fixes you are ashamed of.
20:07<Nivex>you can weave spaghetti into a framework
20:07<avenj>historically smf has given me less of a headache than phpbb ... but all forum software sucks including the big-dollar packages
20:07<SleePy>Nivex, Not if I can help it. Kicking these devs to do the job right.

20:09<Obsidian|server>OOP frameworks rarely think of it ~_~

20:13<Obsidian|server>SleePy: working with the observer design pattern on a test project (a challenge, really, to develop my OOP skills) I've found that you can really change it up with event-driven design
20:14<SleePy>From what I have seen, extensibility is not usually the thought process when designing the code structure. Its usually an afterthought.

20:20<AviMarcus>SleePy, linbot is supybot / gribble
20:20<AviMarcus>it's python and can do lots of stuff out of the box / easily
20:21<SleePy>AviMarcus, I know that :) I used to use supybot.
20:21<Obsidian|server>emberlabs/materia was the addon loading/metadata code originally. will likely reuse that for a bunch of web apps, for an addon framework
20:21<Obsidian|server>event dispatcher in openflame was originally in that project, and was ported out for general was the dependency injector
20:22<Obsidian|server>ended up ripping out the symfony2 yaml component and replacing it with just json after I noticed the performance of their yaml parsing. Atrocious.
20:23<beckham>support request: could someone please reset my linode? i am, my username is either beckham or leftorium, and i have my cellphone on me for confirmation. the paper with my password on it is on the other side of the country from me right now.
20:23<Obsidian|server>in a web app, it ended up taking 30-40% page gen time.
20:24<beckham>sure, but not from my expected email address. :-/
20:26<SleePy>FYI, you shouldn't store passwords on things like paper, text documents, your hand, etc..
20:26<Darxus_>Just telnet into port 25 of their mail server and forger your from address :)
20:27<Obsidian|server>SleePy: paper is fine if it's stored in a safe, tbh

20:28<dvgrhl>Darxus_: it went down?
20:28<Darxus_> - on passwords.
20:28<SleePy>Darxus_, It was never down.
20:28<rnowak>Fremont is always down in my heart
20:28<Darxus_>Perihelion: was the hop before my server, showing some loss. I still have the route if you're interested, but I hit reset since the loss stopped, and, well, it stopped.
20:29*SleePy wouldn't be here without freemont to bounce off of.
20:29<beckham>Darxus_: if my linode could establish a socket, i'd gladly telnet my way through. :)

20:30<Darxus_>I wonder if there was an ipv6 specific outage, based on that host name.
20:30<SleePy>ipv6 didn't fail on me either.
20:30<beckham>Darxus_: no, i don't have a functioning mailserver.

21:04<Solver>What is the the equivalent of a postfix transport map in sendmail
21:04<rnowak>god have mercy on those people
21:04<Solver>I thought it'd be mailertable but it doesn't seem to do per email address routing, only per domain
21:05*Solver hasn't done much sendmail in the last decade :)
21:05<rnowak>email, how very 1980
21:05*Solver is stuck with sendmail on this box
21:06<rnowak>just think it and erlang will do

21:17<MTecknology>seems like it should be really easy..
21:18<rnowak>padding, if you mean it should look nice visually, and not for reading in tabbed data

22:13<Obsidian|server>MTecknology: i tried this a while back; you have to send all mail through local smtp. using sendmail or mail won't do it
22:14<Obsidian|server>like, the sendmail/mail layers for postfix
22:14<MTecknology>Obsidian|server: :(
22:14<MTecknology>Obsidian|server: how much of a pain is it?
22:15<StevenK>For postfix, /usr/sbin/sendmail *is* postfix
22:15<Obsidian|server>MTecknology: enough of a pain that I said screw it and gave up, and went back to coding

22:17<Obsidian|server>and anything that makes it past, get an API key and report them to the database so everyone else can benefit from the data
22:18<MTecknology>i _should_ be making a plugin to do this but there's no possible way it's easier than making postfix work for me

22:19<MTecknology>StevenK: you happen to know how?
22:21<MTecknology>basically... this spam network has built a script to sign up for fake accounts, use a DEA, grob the verification link, novigate to it, log in, create a spam page
22:22<MTecknology>Obsidian|server: i love you
22:23<Obsidian|server>see, I'd asked this a while back on there
22:24<MTecknology>i passed to drunk to work on tech
22:25<MTecknology>Obsidian|server: i'll bookmark and read more- thanks!
22:27<MTecknology>does it make sense to put /usr on its own pantition?
22:27<Solver>not anymore imho
22:27<MTecknology>I was going to do that, and now I'm thinking that maybe it's a waste
22:28<Solver>it used to be common to mount /usr read-only and share it among many boxes but with modern packaging systems this doesn't work well
22:29<Solver>and besides disk is now much more plentiful then it once was
22:29<MTecknology>disk is scarce!
22:29<MTecknology>i only have 6GB after my raid setup

23:05<kyhwana>I imagine all the rest of them will get a lot more subscribers if that goes through
23:06<Obsidian|server>why don't they just go the cheaper route and buy every child a WoW subscription
23:06<kyhwana>Then they can make them farm gold too
23:06<praetorian>or a football
23:06<praetorian>or maybe a rugby ball

23:23<G>hmmm okay
23:23*G puts it down to his own insanity
23:24<Solver>the two may not be mutually exclusive
23:24<avenj>yeah lack of funk over here too
23:25<Solver>you may be insane and there may also have been a brief network interruption :)
23:25<G>Solver: hmmmm I like the way you think :)
23:25<G>Solver: btw, long time no see, hows it going?
23:26<Solver>G: NZ still treating you well?
23:26<Solver>yeah pretty good. we're still in aus - will be for a few years yet
23:26<G>Solver: you were in Canada for a while iirc right?
23:26<Solver>bearly 8 years
23:27<Solver>we'll go back one day. I quite liked living in a 'foreign' country. It's not really foreign anymore as I'm
23:27<Solver>canadian now :)
23:28<Solver>I miss Toronto and Tim Hortons and kerbside hotdog stands
23:28<G>heh just noticed one of Twitter's mail servers is called 'ham-cannon' :P
23:28<G>Solver: in Re to NZ, yeah but I'm over Rugby
23:28<Solver>G: happy you went back to NZ?
23:29<G>makes me wish I could go to the GABBA and watch an AFL match :P

23:31<ajmitch>now that the pool games have finished, you can almost ignore it down here unless you look at a newspaper or TV :)
23:32*Solver feels rugby/afl is less in his face than when he lived in australia before
23:32<Solver>in contrast ice hockey is a religion in canada
23:32<G>seriously, I don't need/want to know about Dan Carter's crotch (which iirc both TV1/TV3 dedicated an entire 6pm news bulletin to), nor any of the other players
23:32<Solver>G: haha :)
23:32<G>kyhwana: I was 'over' RWC about a year prior, actually I think back in 2008 I was 'over' it
23:33<G>ajmitch: I must say I liked FOUR's advertising campaign
23:34<G>"The home of NOT Rugby" unfortunately they spoiled it by putting RWC ads, and ads for Rugby xbox/PS games directly after the slogan
23:35<G>and thankfully TV2 isn't overrun by Rugby either
23:35*ajmitch doesn't bother with tv
23:35<G>Solver: btw, starting to like a Canadian TV show they are starting to show over here ;0
23:35<ajmitch>though there are some shows that I watch online, hulu works for that
23:36<G>ajmitch: haha yeah
23:36<ajmitch>ssh tunnel + squid on linode is useful :)
23:37<G>ajmitch: I just use OpenVPN
23:37<kyhwana>ajmitch: I couldn't get hulu to work with just ssh tunnel, had to use openvpn
23:37<Fieldy>vpn here too, good stuf
23:37<G>OpenVPN + 'ip rule' = brilliant
23:37<Fieldy>my linode is my default gateway for everything at home
23:37<ajmitch>kyhwana: it works for me, I use ssh port forwarding to access squid
23:38<G>when I want to watch something on Hulu or something I just flick an ip rule entry in
23:38<G>and I wrote a DNS proxy to dynamically forward DNS requests based on the computers routing decision
23:38<ajmitch>that sounds like a little bit of overkill :)
23:38<G>which gets around Akamai's geo-DNS :)
23:39<G>ajmitch: it's only a ~20 line or so twistd script
23:39<G>and it works
23:39<G>Fieldy: the problem w/ default gateway via VPN, is anti-fraud scripts etc

23:40<Fieldy>you have a good point though if you and the linode is far enough away, something can trigger and say "that ain't right"
