#linode IRC Logs for 2012-01-18

---Logopened Wed Jan 18 00:00:15 2012
00:00<squircle>there's a whole page by the Canadian government saying why the PATRIOT act is bad
00:00<squircle>go figure
00:00<auraka>obviously they are unpatriotic
00:00<puhola>ah, cool, wikipedia is down now
00:01<EugeneKay>The thing that amazes me is the level of cluelessness people have about the legislative process. It's been "rich tell the poor what to do" for thousands of years.
00:01<EugeneKay>Corporate control of the government is NOT new.
00:01<squircle>puhola: not for me!
00:01<squircle>EugeneKay: I'm ignorant of the US legislative process because I'm Canadian! (I was wondering if it was similar down there)
00:01<EugeneKay>I mean, the whole "Occupy" bullcrap.
00:01<puhola>squircle? huh? how? why not?
00:02<squircle>puhola: dunno! I tried clearing my cache, and it's still up. maybe 'cause I'm logged in...?
00:02<puhola>hmmmm, shit. I should have logged in. I just started my hw like 5 min ago
00:02<synapt>Hm interesting
00:02<synapt>They're just 'overlaying' a layer
00:03<synapt>All the wiki content is there behind the blackout page
00:03-!-HeavyMetal [] has quit [Quit: SIGTERM RECEIVED DISCONNECTING]
00:03<squircle>maybe my ad-blocker is helping me?
00:03<synapt>I don't know that an ad-blocker would necessarily effect it
00:03<synapt>are you US?
00:03<synapt>As far as I'm aware it's only the en.* wiki
00:03<squircle>nope, and it is my ad-blocker
00:03<pharaun>wikipedia is down
00:03<squircle>tried in safari and I see it
00:03<puhola>ahh, google changed their logo
00:03<EugeneKay>Hell, a Stylish rule will do it.
00:04<cehartung>I'm seeing a statement with a 'contact your representative lookup
00:05<puhola>but the page does render for me
00:05<pharaun>reddit is still up
00:05<cehartung>enter your zip code (postal code)
00:05<pharaun>hacker news is still up
00:05<puhola>it's only after a quick second that it shows me the black protest message
00:05<squircle> is down
00:05<pharaun>facebook is up too, figures
00:05<pharaun>its in their interest
00:05<puhola>reddit is going down in 2 hours or something. they're going by pacific time
00:05<pharaun>oh pacific? explains
00:05<puhola>oh no, 7 hours.
00:06<pharaun>er why?
00:06<pharaun>that makes no sense
00:06<bss>google's page is up
00:06<puhola>god knows. I wish they hadn't. silly reason -- out of sync with google, wikipedia, et al.'s actions
00:06<squircle>three hours
00:06<EugeneKay>Stylish CSS rule I just wrote to DeSOPAte Wikipedia:
00:06<Heron>google isn't going dark though
00:06<squircle>silly left coast
00:06-!-userx_ [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:06<Heron>they're just going to put up some info
00:06<bss>yeah, that's what i meant --- that's up
00:07<Heron>sorry :)
00:07<puhola>I see that stylish is a firefox extension -- what avenue would I take to view wikipedia pages on chrome?
00:07-!-zeade [] has joined #linode
00:07<pharaun>yes google page is up but their logo is gone
00:08-!-undrt [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
00:08<squircle>puhola: the default blocklist for adblock will block the layer for you
00:08<EugeneKay>I'm sure there's a plugin for Chrome
00:08<squircle>uhh... there's stylish for chrome...
00:08<bss>the logo approach is interesting. it's striking enough without being detrimental
00:09<EugeneKay>And fiddling the logo is something they have a long history of doing.
00:09<Heron>lol. I clicked on the PDF that's linked here:
00:09<Heron>and it took me to a Google Docs page...
00:09<Heron>... and said I don't have permission.
00:09<Heron>oh, maybe they just hammered themselves too hard
00:09<Heron>it says "we are unable to retrieve the document, or you don't have permission"
00:10<cehartung>maybe you need to be logged in?
00:10<EugeneKay>Download Original link worked for me
00:10<pharaun>lol yeah
00:10<Heron>maybe it's because i'm logged in and using chrome?
00:10<Heron>not sure why it made the pdf link go to google docs
00:10<Heron>the direct link works fine
00:11<puhola>for what URL would I add the stylish thing? how about:* -- because that apparently does not work
00:11<cehartung>interesting ... right pane "Error: ..."
00:12<EugeneKay>Dunno in chrome, but that style has it self-included for FF syntax
00:12-!-userme [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:12-!-arooni-mobile [~arooni-mo@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:13<cehartung>did we lose caker?
00:13-!-triplei [~dank@] has quit [Quit: Ex-Chat]
00:13<puhola>wow that's interesting, even when I specify it to have it apply on "everything", it still goes to the black screen
00:13<pharaun>why are you working around this :p
00:14<pharaun>go call your senate/congress person or call your friendly americans and provocate them into action :p
00:14<squircle>that's the element you have to block methinks
00:15<EugeneKay>That is one ugly bit of JS
00:16<squircle>for one ugly piece of legislation
00:16<puhola>it's intently obfuscated
00:17<puhola>speaking of which, why is html/js code obfuscated? I remember reading that as one of the checklist things developers do as a precautionary measure. I was confused why
00:17*zivester ha, just noticed google homepage... awesome
00:18<EugeneKay>Cuz haxors
00:18<squircle>google homepage looks totally normal to me... should it not be?
00:19<zivester>thats what i see
00:19<squircle>maybe it's only for US IPs
00:20-!-dassouki [~ahmed@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:20<puhola>squircle: wikipedia is up for you?
00:20<puhola>I think because you have javascript disabled? it seems accessible with js disabled
00:20<Defenestrator>Yeah, I think it's just for the US
00:20<Heron>(for google, anyway)
00:20<squircle>puhola: i added a rule for my adblocker to remove the overlay
00:20<MTecknology>what was the link for that again?
00:20<Defenestrator>Yeah, they're loading the overlay with JS pretty late in the rendering, seems like. If you're quick with the esc key you can stop it too
00:20<puhola>squircle: give me the rule please?
00:21<squircle>it's up there ^^
00:21<squircle>block this:
00:21<puhola>defenstator: hm, Esc? in what browser? how does that work out? is that like a Chrome shortcut to stop rendering the page or what?
00:21<EugeneKay>Or just block Special:BannerLoader totally
00:21<auraka> <--- does anyone find it ironic that google lists Torrentfreak?
00:22<EugeneKay>Should nuke the dreadfal beg banners, too ;-)
00:22<squircle>puhola: it's a shortcut to "stop"
00:22<Defenestrator>puhola: most browsers, I think. Stop load as well as js execution basically
00:22<bss>hmm. namecheap is slow as molasses for me right now
00:22<puhola>Interesting! escíng it does work. That's very clever, how did you come to think of that solution?
00:22<pharaun>this was upon request
00:22<puhola>hm ok
00:22<pharaun>for emergency
00:22<squircle>because the js is the last thing it loads
00:23<squircle>watching Special:RecentChanges is entertaining
00:23<EugeneKay>Who started the "Jan 18th" thing, anyway? Reddit?
00:23<squircle>as people figure out how to get around the blackout
00:23<dzho>routine use of NoScript ftw
00:23<EugeneKay>I think they were the first to majorly announce it
00:23-!-Webhostbudd [] has quit [Quit: Leaving.]
00:24<zivester>reddit did.. .i think it was when they were originally suppose to vote/talk about SOPA
00:24<cehartung>hey all, anyone here actually /from/ linode?
00:24<zivester>(in congress)
00:24<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:
00:24<pharaun>cehartung: anyone with snail in their name
00:25<cehartung>yeah, thanks
00:25-!-tierra [] has left #linode []
00:25-!-CapnKernel [~mjd@] has left #linode []
00:25<cehartung>not happy with this Empathy client
00:25<puhola>snail, heh. that's cute.
00:26-!-squircle [~squircle@2001:470:1d:647:cabc:c8ff:fee7:8bb7] has quit [Quit: Goodbye!]
00:26<JshWright>cehartung: bear in mind, it's after midnight at Linode HQ, and this is a community channel. If you absolutely need to talk to someone from Linode, a ticket or e-mail would be the way to do it
00:26<pharaun>^ would be wise if its emergency
00:26<cehartung>no emergency
00:26<pharaun>but if its some general support stuff we can probably help
00:27<cehartung>just curious who's hanging out here this late ...
00:27<cehartung>I'm on US Eastern time, too
00:27<JshWright>Linode has support staff on 24/7, so tickets are always answered, but staff participation drops off after hours
00:27<cehartung>caker took off about the same time as I figured out who he was
00:28<JshWright>not to say many of them don't hang out here when they're off duty, but it's certainly slower
00:28<cehartung>I'd have figured that much
00:28<cehartung>so you people are customers, then
00:28<cehartung>or friends of customers?
00:28<JshWright>the vast majoirty are customers
00:29<praetorian>or rackspace employees
00:29<JshWright>some potential cutomers, some previous cutomers, and a handful of non-custoemrs
00:29<cehartung>that's almost as funny as 'winode'
00:29<auraka>a.k.a freeloaders
00:30<cehartung>ah, thanks for filling in the blanks for me
00:30-!-puhola [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
00:31<cehartung>nice to see a real community here
00:31<cehartung>I've been evaluating vps hosting services
00:32<JshWright>you won't find a better community
00:32<cehartung>a very large number of them out there no longer monitor their IRC
00:32<cehartung>or they respond two or three days later to even a 'pre-sale' inquiry
00:32<cehartung>never ever do you get a phone call back
00:32<praetorian>linode once gave me crap response on a ticket
00:32<praetorian>i had to wait *5 minutes*
00:33<cehartung>I like linode
00:33<cehartung>I had a very good but very brief experience
00:33<cehartung>contemplating giving 'em another try
00:33-!-Knight [] has joined #linode
00:34<@Praefectus>what's to contemplate?
00:34<cehartung>it all went sour when my e-mail got ignored
00:34<cehartung>it was technically an excellent experience but I thought the CS sucked
00:35<MTecknology>I've never before heard of linode costomer service not being good
00:35<auraka> one at Linode ever wakes up in the morning and says "how am I going to provide crappy support today".....
00:35<cehartung>of course not
00:35<JshWright>if you have an account, a ticket is a _much_ better way to go
00:36<MTecknology>I worked at a company where they tried to teach you how to lie to customers to get more money from services
00:36<praetorian>(or you could just.. call them :))
00:36<auraka>cehartung: were you a gentoo/arch user? It could have been justifiable
00:36*praetorian adds auraka to the throw poop list
00:36<MTecknology>I actually need to open a support ticket sometime...
00:36-!-HeavyMetal [] has joined #linode
00:36<JshWright>please don't sar Arch... please don't say Arch... please don't say Arch...
00:37<cehartung>I'm pretty sure I submitted my correspondence by ticket
00:37<MTecknology>JshWright: you stuttered
00:37<bob2>just pay a small premium to get put on a no-moron host
00:37<bob2>no arch users or gentoo users or irc servers
00:37<@Praefectus>cehartung: what was the email about that was ignored?
00:37-!-advion [] has joined #linode
00:37<JshWright>MTecknology: it happens... long class, couple hours at the bar...
00:37<SleePy>I should open a ticket. Just because it would be my first ticket :D
00:37<praetorian>bob2: id like to be on a host without those ubuntu users.
00:37<bob2>praetorian, ditto
00:37<cehartung>I explained I'm a small web developer
00:38<auraka>praetorian: you and the other two arch/gentoo users wouldn't be able to pay for the server then :-/
00:38<MTecknology>JshWright: i was thinking more like a scared, don't say it, i can't stand it, about to roge kinda stutter
00:38<auraka>they'd go bankrupt
00:38<MTecknology>SleePy: one to say hi?
00:39<pharaun>MTecknology: i did
00:39<SleePy>Either that or ask them a really impossible question
00:39<MTecknology>cehartung: I've been able to run 10 sites both moderately used without any issues at all on the smallest linode at the time, don't remember what that was then..
00:39<auraka>I've never had a subpar response from linode even though I may have deserved one....
00:39<praetorian>auraka: boo
00:39<cehartung>anyway, it was obvious my e-mail / ticket wasn't understood
00:39<praetorian>i can name more than two usres on arch now :P
00:39<auraka>and count them on one hand
00:40<cehartung>I have clients with SSL requirements = dedicated IPs
00:40<praetorian>the ones i know personally. im sure there is more ;)
00:40<MTecknology>praetorian: maybe up to five more!
00:40<praetorian>hush :P
00:40<praetorian>arch is surprisingly grown in popularity.
00:40<MTecknology>cehartung: you don't really need a dedicated ip per https site
00:41<MTecknology>unless you're supporting ie6?
00:41<MTecknology>not sure when that stopped being the case
00:41<cehartung>I know my requirements
00:41*Heron uses arch
00:41*pharaun gives a disapproving glare at arch users
00:41<praetorian> - #6 !
00:41<praetorian>b[3~eeating centos!
00:41<bob2>lol distrowatch
00:41<Heron>pharaun: at least I don't use gentoo anymore! ;)
00:41<praetorian>bob2: :P
00:41<bob2>ha ha ha ha ha ha
00:41<JshWright>Linode is a very responsible service provider, especially when it comes to IPv4 allocation
00:41<pharaun>Heron: hah
00:41-!-atula [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
00:42<auraka>praetorian: I have come to the conclusion that gentoo/arch people are Sadomasichists
00:42<JshWright>Heron: how do you like that pacakge verification?
00:42-!-orudie_ [] has joined #linode
00:42<pharaun>Heron: i rebuild my gentoo desktop in hours :3
00:42<pharaun>all servers are debian ofc
00:42<JshWright>I've got nothing against gentoo... Arch is a scary distro for a server
00:42<praetorian>auraka: why?
00:42<SleePy>Debian 6.0.3 $26.95 <-- wtf?
00:42<auraka>praetorian: both like lots of pain for little reward
00:42<pharaun>yeah at least gentoo got some sort of gpg/checksum/etc, arch don't :(
00:43<praetorian>JshWright: psst
00:43<cehartung>JshWright: I understand the situation
00:43<praetorian>JshWright: arch has signed packages
00:43<bss>just recently
00:43<auraka>rnowak: tell them you have scientifically verified this
00:44<cehartung>JshWright: I don't think my requirement is unusual
00:44<@Praefectus>However, until the last few details regarding database signing and keyring distribution are ironed out, this is disabled in pacman's default config.
00:44<Heron>I use gentoo on my server here at home, arch on my linodes, ubuntu on my desktop
00:44<MTecknology>it is actually
00:44<Heron>or wait, i guess i'm using arch on my desktop VM righ tnow
00:44<cehartung>JshWright: or unreasonable
00:44<MTecknology>it is actually
00:44<Heron>ubuntu kept not working
00:44<pharaun>Heron: that's backward
00:44-!-stafamus [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
00:44*MTecknology runs off
00:45<pharaun>Heron: i can see gentoo on desktop where it would be benefitful, but gentoo on servers :\
00:45<Heron>pharaun: it's more an artifact of when I switched distros in general
00:45<Heron>I used to run gentoo on my desktop and laptop
00:45<JshWright>cehartung: I obviously don't know anything about your specific requirements, and I'm certainly not trying to pick a fight, I'm just saying that I, as a Linode customer, appreciate the fact that they act responsibly, even if it's the easiest, or most profitable, thing to do
00:45<pharaun>Heron: hehe alright :)
00:45<Heron>it's how I learned that compile times can be improved drastically by putting /var/portage/tmp on a 9GB ramdisk
00:46<praetorian>arch on servers isnt scary.
00:46<pharaun>Heron: i'm just a big fan of debian for servers, gentoo for my desktop
00:46<pharaun>Heron: haha yeah
00:46<pharaun> is just sad
00:46<praetorian>i always cheated. openoffice-bin
00:46-!-peter [] has joined #linode
00:46<bss>my two vanity linodes are gentoo. but i've also used it for approaching a decade now, it long ago reached a point that i could administer it in my sleep
00:46<Heron>these days I don't have the patience to wait for things to compile
00:46<bss>no point in switching
00:46<pharaun>chromium is down to 4-5 minute build on my desktop :)
00:46<auraka>using arch is like hunting boar with a needle...sure you may eventually get the job done but there is going to be lots of pain and you have to deal with all the pricks
00:46<Heron>I keep trying to use ubuntu but I consistently have show-stopping problems with it
00:46<Heron>so, I end up using arch
00:46<JshWright>cehartung: SNI wouldn't work for you?
00:46<praetorian>cant say ive seen arch been painful, fwiw
00:46<pharaun>i hate ubuntu
00:46-!-peter is now known as Guest24382
00:47<pharaun>i've tried ubuntu a few time
00:47<pharaun>i ended up just being all pissed at it and tossing it out
00:47<pharaun>fedora isn't bad so far, but i prefer debian or gentoo
00:47<JshWright>(I'm just curious, still not trying to pick a fight)
00:47<Heron>don't get me wrong, I don't dislike gentoo
00:47<Heron>i'm just not as patient as I used to be
00:47<bss>isn't SNI adoption still spotty?
00:47<auraka>Heron: wisdom with age
00:48<pharaun>android browsers/mobile browsers i think
00:48<Heron>er, yes, let's call it wisdom
00:48-!-michael_mbp [~michael_m@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
00:48<pharaun>i think the main issues is mobile and ie6
00:48<cehartung>JshWright: I don't believe it is unreasonable to ask for 5 IPs for myself and six clients
00:48<Heron>sounds better than "more impatient"
00:48<pharaun>Heron: fair enough :)
00:48<Heron>speaking of which
00:48<Katana>cehartung: look at it from their perspective, the more IPs they sell you, the less nodes they can sell
00:48<Heron>I should probably update my server
00:48<pharaun>Heron: but then again i do world rebuilds in hours :) so its not like its that slow :p
00:48<MTecknology>cehartung: I think it is
00:48<Heron>my home server hasn't been updated in ages
00:48<pharaun>haha yeah
00:49<@heckman>cehartung: why do you need that many IPs?
00:49<pharaun>i recently moved my home server off gentoo -> debian 6
00:49<Katana>cehartung: each node requires at least one IPv4 address, and assigning more to already existing nodes means less revenue
00:49<Heron>i'm not even sure how to tell how long it has been
00:49<JshWright>cehartung: to what end? assuming you don't need IE6 support, there's no technical reason for different IPs
00:49<MTecknology>Heron: he thinks he needs one per https site
00:49<MTecknology>heckman: *
00:49<praetorian>i used gentoo on my desktop. reason i really moved away from it, was i could get lazy and forget to update. so it would be always a pain updating.
00:49<pharaun>its so much nicer to be able to do apt-get upgrade and be fairly sure it'll work :)
00:49<praetorian>and arch solved that.
00:49<pharaun>praetorian: yeah it can be
00:49<Heron>pharaun: that's exactly why I haven't updated my home server
00:49<Heron>i'm afraid I'll break something :(
00:49<@heckman>Isn't it IE6 on XP and IE7 on XP as well (or am I thinking of something else?)
00:49-!-mcinerney [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:49*bss just finished a rebuild-world-then-restart-all-services cycle on his servers. kind of fun in a way
00:49<cehartung>JshWright: four different small companies, each with SSL, me as web designer / host
00:49<pharaun>but i been using this for so long that i do all of this in my sleep :)
00:49-!-HeavyMetal [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
00:50<pharaun>cehartung: what's your exact requirement
00:50<Katana>heckman: IE6 isn't available on win6.x iirc
00:50<@heckman>Katana: correct
00:50<pharaun>cehartung: do you need to support ie6, or some mobile? if no, then you should be fine with SNI
00:50<@heckman>Don't some modern mobile browsers support it? (iOS/Android)
00:50<bss>shame on them if they don't :|
00:50<cehartung>these are existing websites with existing SSL certs that need to be rekeyed when the sites are moved
00:50<praetorian>i could check if they did heckman
00:50<praetorian>but wikipedia is down.
00:51<JshWright>cehartung: that still doesn't imply a need for discrete IPv4 addresses. I run half a dozen sites off my node, 4 of them for clients, all with SSL, and only one IPv4 address
00:51<MTecknology>IE6.... why will people not let it just die!!!
00:51<praetorian>i cbf adding in the javascript hack
00:51-!-HeavyMetal [] has joined #linode
00:51<cehartung>how does that work with PayPal and etc?
00:52-!-rmk [] has joined #linode
00:52<pharaun>those are the browser that don't support sni, if he's not required to use support one of these
00:52<pharaun>then there is no technical reason why not to use SNI
00:52<MTecknology>cehartung: you pay by credit card, that's it
00:52<Katana>cehartung: as a word of caution, there's an increasing amount of paypal abuse against sellers lately. may want to caution your clients about that
00:52<Katana>MTecknology: you misread

00:54<rmk>bob2: That was really the question yeah.

04:56<crimbox2>kyhwana: no i seems to be working ok now
04:56<kyhwana>crimbox2: well, I guess you need to figure out what's using up all your CPU time and/or IO time when it's slow..
04:56<kyhwana>Check your linode manager graphs, etc.
04:57<Duke>leenodah eh
04:58<crimbox2>kyhwana: so it is a problem with the linode
05:00<retro|blah>crimbox2: You tell us.
05:00<kyhwana>crimbox2: maybe.. depends it could be lag or your linode being busy

07:12<Alan>and i can't figure out if the server's openssl version is relevant or not
07:12<kyhwana>what changed after 1.0.0e?
07:12<kyhwana>Is it refusing SSLv2/v3?
07:12<Alan>TLS v1.1 and v1.2
07:13<Alan>some broken TLSv1.0 implementations barf when presented with a client that supports 1.1 or 1.2

09:20<Kingsy>tusk - I can imagine it works.. the error doesnt occur all of the time.. it seems to happen "once in a while"

09:31<tusk>Kingsy: ok. then maybe you need to increase the memory setting in php.ini
09:32<tusk>grep -A25 "Resource Limits" php.ini
09:32<Kingsy>tusk: running out of memory in php tho should give you a fatal error.. not a problem loading page
09:32<tusk>Kingsy: it depends on your phh configuring.
09:33<Kingsy>tusk well the mem limit is set to 128M which is a little low..
09:33<tusk>I think default each php script can only use 32M
09:33<tusk>low ?
09:33<tusk>128M for each php session ?
09:33<tusk>it sounds high for me.
09:33<@irgeek>Running out of memory won't give you an error page if you're OOMing.
09:34<Kingsy>tusk: well yeah its enough to not give me errors.. so its not that
09:34<@irgeek>The kernel is killing the process you're talking to, hence the connection reset.
09:34<Kingsy>irgeek: right, can I find out why thats happenin?
09:34<tusk>it should say so in the messages file.
09:34<tusk>or check the kernel ring buffer with dmesg

09:39<tusk>see eg.
09:40<Kingsy>tusk: umm you want me to reboot the kernel ?
09:41<nehalem>@goose, Why do you say that?
09:41<tusk>You have already change that kernel parameter with the echo command.
09:41<tusk>to make it permanent (if it solves your problem) you need to edit /etc/sysctl.conf
09:41<Kingsy>tusk: oh ok.. so how do I check its changed? or is that it? work done.. see if the issue reappears?
09:41<tusk>yes. wait and see.

09:48<Kingsy>irgeek: the linode manager? or the terminal? and for what?
09:49<@irgeek>Not all kernel errors show up in logs - sometimes the kernel can't allocate memory to write them to disk.
09:49<Kingsy>irgeek: so what would you recommend?
09:49<@irgeek>09:29:59 <@irgeek> You're looking for the Remote Access tab. There's info about accessing your console there.
09:50<@irgeek>In the Linode Manager.

09:50<nehalem>Kingsy, it is very easy to install APC

10:08<@irgeek>They're using *lots* of memory each.
10:08<Kingsy>what is RSS? I would have thought the MEM column would be what we wanted to look at?
10:08-!-corycollier [~corycolli@] has joined #linode

10:12<Kingsy>what is O.O ?
10:13<@irgeek>Kingsy: The way you're doing everything now, your Linode doesn't have enough memory to run that particular software.

10:16<Kingsy>dwfreed: ah right so.. wow you have used all of your memory
10:17<Kingsy>wow.. upgrading is REALLY expensive... the max you can have on a vps is like 800MB of RAM ?
10:17<Kingsy>irgeek: is there a way of working with what I have somehow?
10:17<swaj>linode offers nodes up to 20GB of RAM
10:18<@irgeek>Kingsy: We don't offer a Linode with 800MB.
10:18<Kingsy>oh? I was just looking in my linode manager extras section is all
10:18<@irgeek>Don't use the extras. They're meant for "I need a quick boost of RAM for a few days"
10:18<swaj>also, have you exhausted apache tweaking options? (using a different MPM, etc)
10:19<@irgeek>Moving the PHP stuff into a separate process will probably help.
10:19<Kingsy>irgeek: ah ok I see.. so it would be a seperate plan
10:19<swaj>I mean like apache + mpm_worker (or mpm_event) and php5-fpm would probably help a lot for memory consumption.
10:19<Kingsy>irgeek: moving it to a seperate process..?
10:19<@irgeek>What swaj just suggested.
10:20<Kingsy>swaj: no I havent heard of em
10:20<swaj>so you're probably using mpm_prefork or whatever
10:20<@irgeek>That's going to require reconfiguring what you have now.
10:20<Kingsy>swaj: I am yeah
10:20<swaj>yeah mpm_prefork is a memory hog -- you using mod_php, too?
10:20<EriksLV>Getting stuck between spammers and their victims is not fun. Not fun at all.
10:21<Kingsy>swaj I am not sure.. how do I check?
10:21<swaj>eh, do you have the package installed?
10:21<swaj>how did you install PHP?
10:21<Kingsy>swaj: wiht apt-get
10:21<swaj>no I mean, what package did you install?
10:22<swaj>ubuntu or debian?
10:22<@irgeek>Kingsy: You have to do the cost/benefit analysis of the time it will take to reconfigure vs the extra money it costs to throw more memory at the problem.
10:22<swaj>what version of ubuntu? 10.04 LTS?
10:22<Kingsy>swaj: yeah
10:22<Kingsy>irgeek: yeah I would rather try and customize the server.. this way I will learn a little too
10:23<Kingsy>learning was the whole reason I got the server :)
10:23<swaj>so yeah, there's not a distro php5-fpm package, but MTecknology runs the nginx PPA for ubuntu that has it.
10:23<swaj>for lucid
10:24-!-vraa [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
10:24<Kingsy>swaj: I am a little lost.. is pgp5-fpm a extension for php that handles the way php uses memory? if so is it a case of install and done? do you install and enable in php.ini and your done?
10:24<swaj>php5-fpm basically runs PHP in a FastCGI process, outside of your webserver
10:24<swaj>so you proxy requests from the webserver to php5-fpm
10:25<swaj>it's faster, and uses a bit less memory in practice.
10:25<Kingsy>swaj: so its alot slower?
10:25<swaj>no, the contrary
10:25-!-orudie [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
10:25<swaj>it's a dedicated pool of processes just for PHP stuff
10:25<Kingsy>hehe so why wouldnt every guy under the sun use it?? :P
10:25-!-orudie [] has joined #linode
10:26<swaj>Kingsy: eh, in my experience, most people that know about FPM, use it.
10:26<dwfreed>Kingsy: just about every regular here who runs PHP sites and doesn't use Apache uses php65-fpm
10:26-!-devcomp [] has joined #linode
10:27<swaj>again, MTecknology (a linode regular) runs the PPA for it:
10:27<Kingsy>swaj: ok so.. lets get back to prefork first.. what should I be using? I take it that mod_prefork is an apache extension that decides how apache handles processes?
10:28<Kingsy>swaj: an prefork is crap default?
10:28-!-John [] has quit [Quit: User divided by zero]
10:28<swaj>it's not bad, it's just old, and uses more memory than the newer mpm_worker (or the beta mpm_event which I prefer)
10:29<Kingsy>swaj: just out of curiousity.. is there a way of measuring how much memory per request I am saving?
10:29<Kingsy>like now can I do a server request.. save the memory usage.. make a change refresh and compare?
10:29<hawk>Kingsy: prefork in itself is not the most efficient worker process model, but it's not quite that awful _unless_ you have mod_php which makes the worker processes huge
10:29-!-rainman [] has joined #linode
10:29<swaj>there's a lot of variables there
10:29<swaj>mod_php is definitely your biggest memory hog
10:29-!-hfb [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
10:30<swaj>which is what you have installed
10:30<Kingsy>swaj: is there a easy way of noting right now how much memory per request my server is eating? use free -m ?
10:30<hawk>Kingsy: The worst problem with prefork + mod_php is probably that it's hard to configure things in a reasonable way to limit php memory usage and still serve a lot of static files
10:31<swaj>not that I know of... free -m isn't going to give you realistic numbers
10:31<Kingsy>sorry I meant ps auxf
10:31<swaj>memory per request is a questionable measurement anyway
10:31<swaj>it depends on so many things
10:32<Kingsy>swaj: basically I am going to be making changes to free up memory.. how am I going to be able to tell its working.. without.. "taking your word for it" I know your not lying but it would be nice to see the changes as I go
10:32<swaj>my advice to you, if you want to keep using that 512, is to use php5-fpm + mod_fastcgi (or whatever it is in Apache)
10:32<swaj>Kingsy: switch and watch your total memory free up and errors go away :P
10:33-!-mpkossen [~mpkossen@] has quit [Quit: Leaving.]
10:33<Kingsy>swaj: by total memory free up.. you mean monitor free -m ?
10:33<Kingsy>ok cool
10:33<Kingsy>how do you tell apache to swtich from prefork..
10:33*Kingsy looks in apache2.conf
10:34<swaj>I think with ubuntu you can just switch to a different mpm package
10:34<swaj>I think it's like "sudo apt-get install apache2-mpm-worker"
10:34<swaj>to switch to worker mpm
10:34<swaj>it'll remove prefork, install worker, and restart apache
10:36<Kingsy>swaj: ok thats done..
10:36<Kingsy>it removed prefork and seemed to install mpm worker and restart.. looked ok to me
10:36<swaj>make sure you take the time to configure it, tweak the settings, etc. :)
10:37*MTecknology was pinged
10:37<swaj>so the next thing I'd do is either compile PHP5 yourself to get fpm, or use MTecknology's PPA :)
10:37<Kingsy>swaj: well now my site doesnt work.. whenever I load a page it just asks me if I want to save it
10:37<MTecknology>php5-fpm is in debian unstable and ubuntu+1
10:37<swaj>he's on lucid :P
10:38<Kingsy>swaj: why would that be happenin?
10:38<swaj>that's the PPA if you don't want to build PHP yourself
10:38<MTecknology>I'm getting excited for Ubuntu 12.10; I'm getting bored with 12.04
10:38<swaj>it might have removed mod_php when you switched workers, I'm not sure
10:38-!-gerryvdm [] has joined #linode
10:38<Kingsy>swaj ah ok ..
10:39<Kingsy>so just install php5-fpm and it should be ok then
10:39<swaj>then you need to reconfigure the vhosts to send php requests off to php5-fpm via fastcgi
10:39<swaj>and then you're done :P
10:39-!-devcomp [] has quit [Quit: devcomp]
10:39<swaj>because apache no longer processes PHP for you at that point -- that's php5-fpm's job
10:40<swaj>this is why I use nginx. I don't like apache's configuration... that and nginx is zomgfast.
10:40<Kingsy>swaj: ok so.. deb lucid main you just ype that and deb-src etc into the console.. and you done?
10:40<Kingsy>or do you then apt-get install php5-fpm ?
10:41<swaj>um, I think you can just do "sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nginx/php5"
10:41<swaj>to enable it
10:41<swaj>then sudo apt-get update and sudo apt-get install php5-fpm
10:42<Kingsy>swaj: naaa -bash: add-apt-repository: command not found
10:42-!-devcomp [] has joined #linode
10:42<swaj>sudo apt-get install python-software-properties
10:42-!-andrew [~andrew@] has joined #linode

10:43<MTecknology>swaj: he using nginx?
10:44<swaj><3 nginx
10:44<Kingsy>swaj: ok thats installed
10:44<swaj>alright, so you'll need mod_fastcgi installed so apache can send the php stuff off to php5-fpm
10:44<Kingsy>swaj: php still isnt handling the http request tho
10:45<swaj>also you may want to tweak the php5-fpm config
10:45<Kingsy>swaj: so sudo apt-get install apache2-mod-fastcgi or something?
10:45<swaj>try "sudo a2enmod fastcgi" and see if that works
10:46<swaj>it might already be installed
10:46<Kingsy>naa it says the module doesnt exist
10:46<swaj>try "sudo apt-get install libapache2-mod-fcgid"
10:47-!-caker [] has joined #linode
10:47<swaj>then sudo a2endmod fcgid
10:47-!-Taranli_Maren [] has joined #linode
10:48<Kingsy>just installed it.. restarted apache but it still says --> ERROR: Module fastcgi does not exist!
10:48<Kingsy>oh lol sorry 1 sec
10:48<Kingsy>swaj: ok so its enabled.
10:49<swaj>okay so the last step is to configure your virtualhost to send PHP requests off to php5-fpm
10:49<Kingsy>swaj: by virtualhost do you mean apache?
10:50<swaj>check apache's config folder
10:50<swaj>do you have a config file for mod_fcgid?
10:51<Kingsy>you mean in /etc/apache2/ ? no

10:56<swaj>/var/www ?
10:57<Kingsy>oh no, /srv/
10:57<Kingsy>but I have 3 sites
10:57<Kingsy>so there is 3 dirs in /srv/
10:57<Kingsy>that are hosted
10:57<@heckman>srving cats
10:57<swaj>so then remove that from fcgid.conf
10:58<Kingsy>swaj: remove what? that entire ScriptAlias /fcgi-bin/ "/usr/local/apache2/fcgi-bin/" line?
10:58<swaj>and add something like this to each virtualhost:
10:58<swaj>remove all the crap from my first paste, and leave it as it was, then add the second paste stuff to each vhost
10:58<Kingsy>oho k
10:58<swaj>change /srv/ to the real path
11:00<swaj>the php5.fcgi file doesn't need to exist, you're just making a fake path, and then telling fastcgi to intercept calls to that fake path, then telling any *.php file to be processed by fastcgi
11:01<Kingsy>swaj: so a sample would be <-- where is my doamin
11:02<swaj>yeah exactly
11:02<swaj>that looks right to me

11:10<Kingsy>ok np

11:55<swaj>it's in unstable, heckman :P
11:55<swaj>which means Debian 8
11:55<@heckman>12.04 is going to have it.
11:55<swaj>maybe they'll move it to testing :)
11:55<swaj>if enough people want it
11:56<Kingsy>swaj: is there a way of learning something about the setup we just implemented?
11:56<swaj>Kingsy: basically, what you did was disable an old, somewhat inefficent apache worker
11:56<swaj>that kept the entirety of mod_php in every worker process
11:56<swaj>and moved php out to a separate pool of worker threads
11:56<swaj>so apache does not manage PHP for you anymore

11:58<Kingsy>swaj: what is a fashcgi server?
11:58<swaj>it's a fast, CGI server :P
11:58<swaj>CGI is a protocol
11:59<swaj>basically, CGI is a protocol that lets webservers speak to external processes
11:59<swaj>like RPC
11:59<swaj>fastcgi is newer version that doesn't suck :)
12:00<Kingsy>so CGI is a internal protocol? or does that not make sense?
12:00<Kingsy>sorry I am just new to this server game :P
12:00<swaj>php5-fpm is a fastcgi server that let's any webserver that speeds FastCGI process php scripts
12:00<swaj>it's an interface between the webserver and a custom script or process
12:00<swaj>it's just a standard way of communicating between those processes

12:01<swaj>apache is then using mod_fastcgi to communicate with PHP5-FPM on that port
12:01<Kingsy>ah ok, so its listening to a internal port
12:02<swaj>fastcgi is the protocol/interface they use to communicate
12:02<Kingsy>ok so..
12:02<swaj>just like your browser uses HTTP
12:02<swaj>over port 80
12:02<swaj>you're using FastCGI over port 9000
12:02<Kingsy>apache listens on port 80 and gets a request... it then uses mod_worker??? right? to handle the request
12:03<swaj>then mod worker sees your vhost config and says "oh this request is for a php file, let's send that off to php5.fastcgi"
12:03<swaj>then the action line you added says "php5.fastcgi" is actually at "/srv/"
12:03<Kingsy>but thats a fake file that doesnt exist right?
12:03<Kingsy>cos I sure as hell didnt make it :)
12:04-!-JediMaster [] has joined #linode
12:04<swaj>then the fastcgiserver line you added says "hey, /srv/ is really just a fake guy, and you should send this request to host using fastcgi"
12:04*JediMaster hugs php5-fpm
12:04<swaj>then php5-fpm gets the communications on port 9000 using fastcgi, and it says "hey I can handle that" and runs your script. Then it communicates back with apache and says "okay, I ran the script, here's the output"
12:04<Kingsy>ok, then php5-fpm interprets for php and returns it to apache
12:04<swaj>then apache says "here you go user, here's your request"
12:05<Kingsy>which returns it to you using http
12:05<JediMaster>ewww, apache and php5-fpm?
12:05<JediMaster>if you're going to the hassle of using php5-fpm, use nginx!
12:05<swaj>lol I was fighting one battle at a time :P
12:05<JediMaster>ah fair enough
12:05<swaj>got him off prefork + mod_php at least :)
12:05<JediMaster>good job
12:06<Kingsy>I still don't really understand what prefork did tbh.. why was it so bad?
12:06<swaj>prefork loaded up some processes to handle requests
12:06<Kingsy>I understand mod_php was crap cos it was opening a new php thrad for every request
12:06<swaj>but then it loaded the entire PHP runtime inside each process.
12:06<Kingsy>thats right yeah?
12:06<swaj>so instead of one copy of PHP
12:06-!-EriksLV [~EriksLV@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
12:06<Kingsy>swaj: thats mod_php that did that right?
12:06<swaj>you were running 1 PHP * (num of processes) copies
12:07<swaj>yeah, well sorta :) it was the prefork + mod_php combo that made it happen
12:07<swaj>mod_php isn't inherently terrible, just combining it with prefork can make your server gobble memory like candy.
12:07<Kingsy>swaj: how the hell did you learn all of this?
12:07<Kingsy>I wanna know it all :)
12:08<swaj>if you want a really fast webserver with almost no memory usage, I recommend nginx :)
12:08<swaj>but yeah
12:08<swaj>another battle
12:08<swaj>nginx is a beast
12:08*JediMaster has 50 nginx + php-fpm servers
12:08<swaj>only problem is you'd have to convert those whacky htaccess rules to nginx
12:08<Kingsy>can you recommend any sources that teach you this stuff?
12:09<@heckman>I think mod_rewrite is a little more fully baked.
12:09<swaj>I'm just a web developer that watches lots of blogs/forums/etc.
12:09<swaj>mod_rewrite is indeed quite good. I wish igor would just steal it and bake it into nginx :P
12:09*JediMaster just dives head first into trying new stuff, breaks things then learns from fixing them =)
12:09<Kingsy>swaj: you know of any good blogs I could learn some of this stuff?
12:09<swaj>uh, not off the top of my head
12:09<JediMaster>much to the annoyance of my mother when I used to pull apart the TV
12:09<swaj>I just follow .NET guys mostly
12:09<swaj>a few ruby guys
12:10<swaj>find the figureheads in your community of choice and follow them :)
12:10<swaj>oh, and I follow a crazy python guy too
12:10<swaj>(Zed Shaw)
12:10<swaj>Zed's got a lot of good advice
12:11<Kingsy>well I don't use python
12:11<swaj>Zed's online ebook club
12:11<swaj>he teaches
12:11<swaj>all his stuff is free for the HTML versions
12:11<swaj>and his writing is good
12:12<JediMaster>Kingsy: RTFM too, is a good resource for PHP =)
12:13<JediMaster>especially when you can do: for instance
12:13<rnowak>it is a good reference manual which you can use if you know how to program
12:13<JediMaster>yes true
12:13<JediMaster>not great from nothing though
12:13<Kingsy>well it was pretty cool installing that I just wish i knew what I was doing a little more (with config)
12:13<rnowak>knowing how to program, the technique, is not quite the same as just needing to look up things for your platform
12:13<swaj>PHP is protesting SOPA :P
12:13<JediMaster>oh yeah!
12:14<JediMaster>so is wikipedia
12:14<swaj>so is reddit :P
12:14<Kingsy>is this a good place to hang out? maybe learn stuff in here too?
12:14<Kingsy>or is this support only? no idle
12:14<JediMaster>yup, all sorts of questions get asked here, generally someone has the answer
12:14<rnowak>you'll learn that debian is superior, and that urmom is always relevant
12:15<Kingsy>ubuntu is debian right?
12:15*rnowak dies
12:15<JediMaster>it's based on it
12:15<JediMaster>different group of people
12:15<rnowak>ubuntu's like the bastard black sheep of the family <3
12:15<JediMaster>got to love it
12:15<linbot>Today is Debian Appreciation Day! \o/
12:15<GaveUp>it's the bratty grandson that thinks it knows everything and is the center of the world :P
12:16<Kingsy>personal preference I guess, I have picked xubuntu as my distro for my desktops and ubuntu as my server distro
12:16<swaj>I used to be an ubuntu guy, but debian offered me cookies, so I switched.
12:16<rnowak>good enough choices, if you now don't feel the need to run pure superiority on your server (:
12:16*akerl runs for his Arch flag
12:16<GaveUp>personal preference sure...doesn't mean one of the choices isn't wrong :P
12:16<JediMaster>it's basically debian backed by a company with a few flavours and newer packages than the stable version of debian, as they release every 6 months instead of every 6 years...
12:17*rnowak trips akerl and ties him up to a debian flagpole
12:17<Kingsy>akerl: I used to use arch but it just wasnt friendly enough for a n00bie like me :)
12:17<Alan>holy crap do i want to kill openjdk
12:17<@akerl>rnowak: Don't make me fix your debian trigger again
12:17<swaj>ubuntu = debian testing + various nonfree stuff + unity and ubuntu branding crap :)
12:17<Alan>it needs to be destroyed
12:17<rnowak>akerl: >:(
12:17<JediMaster>however, for that reason it can be marginally less stable than debian, but I never notice any problems myself
12:17<Kingsy>well I gotta run guys..
12:17<Kingsy>swaj: awesome stuff.. thanks so much
12:17<rnowak>something that arch can't
12:17<swaj>you're welcome :)
12:18<swaj>glad you're running with lots of free RAM now
12:18<Kingsy>yeah.. feeeeellin good
12:18<JediMaster>even more if you use nginx =)
12:18<Kingsy>I will be back a bit later on
12:19<Kingsy>laters ppl swaj: thanks again
12:19<rnowak>so do you folks use ephemeral diffie-hellman on your ssl terminated servers, or have you disabled it?

14:45<mdcollins>I thought it was being voted on in a few days?
14:46<swaj>Jan 24 is the day it's supposed to be voted on, but if the bill sponsors withdraw, it will be killed.
14:46<swaj>PIPA's co-sponsor has withdrawn
14:46<swaj>and SOPA's main sponsor has withdrawn as well

15:56<Malstrond>Linode is not a registrar. You can use any registrar and use them to point the domain to the IP of your Linode, or to point the domain to the namsevers of linode and then use the linode UI to manage the DNS entries

16:09<Bartzy>Do you use your ssh key for lish as well ?
16:10<Bartzy>or did you generate another key only for that ?
16:10<@akerl>Smilex: Yea, or adding ?banner=no or by hitting ESC before the banner
16:10<Kyh>Smilex: Oh, hope you're not planning on using a domain that are run by any US companies (like .com/.org/etc)
16:10<@heckman>Otherwise you need to add the banner every time.
16:11<Kyh>Because the DHS can still "seize" any domains that are registered with any US registrars or owa tld run by a US company
16:11<Smilex>Kyh, forgot about the domains.. .net is also US domain?
16:12<Kyh>And linode is still a US company, so failing that the US can force linode to change your DNS records

16:14<@heckman>It's your own personal preference. My SSH keys are by machine.
16:14<@akerl>I tend to use one priv key per device
16:14<Kyh>Smilex: basically, you're boned either way, the US thinks (and can seem to) do whatever it wants, even too other countries
16:14<dzho>first rule of key security is . . .
16:14<Smilex>ok, maybe I should just ask it plainly. Is there any way I can host with Linode, and have the US have no juristiction or ties to my servers. Also if it is possible that my money won't go to US taxes, that'd be great
16:14<retro|blah>Bartzy: I use the same key for both but my level of paranoia is lower than average
16:14<Kyh>Smilex: nope
16:14<@akerl>Smilex: No
16:15<dzho>one of these things is not like the others
16:15<Kyh>I have a .nz domain for that reason ;)
16:16<Smilex>oh well, dissapointment is a big part of being an idealist, I guess
16:16<Malstrond>it all starts and ends with ICANN, which is under US jurisdiction. ICANN delegates every .tld to other registrars, for example the german .de to the DENIC. the DENIC is not under US jurisdiction. but the ICANN could in theory reverse the delegation at any time
16:16<Malstrond>so even .tlds of other countries are not "safe"
16:16<Smilex>I would have thought that Europe would at least be compitent enough to provide its own services.
16:17<hawk>heckman, akerl: But you are talking about one key per machine you connect _from_, right? As I read Bartzy's question it was about different keys for different things he connects _to_...?
16:17<Bartzy>heckman: You have a SSH key-pair for each machine?? by machine you mean server, or a machine you use physically ?
16:17<@heckman>Remeber, Al Gore invented the internet.
16:17<Malstrond>an few attempts have been made, for example the Open Root Server Network, but they all fizzled
16:17<@heckman>I have a pubkey for each computer I personally use, and I have a single pubkey that all of my servers use to communicate with one another.
16:18<Smilex>Malstrond, but I've heard that the American infastructure is not great, when it comes to internet services, and that Sweden, for example, has a much better infastructure. If this is true, should a DNS service be able to provide better service in Sweden than the US?

16:21<Malstrond>Smilex: for DNS reliablity it doesn't really matter. the router of some random end user probably uses the DNS server of their ISP, which copies and caches the DNS data from a root server. even if it went down or had latency, it wouldn't matter.

18:10<TomAdam>i'll make up a pastie
18:13<hawk>That looked ok, didn't it? And that was a tcptraceroute on a port that you can't connect to?

18:13<TomAdam>oh dear

20:06<@akerl>Or have them generate it on their end
20:08<@akerl>The main point being that when you're using an insecure medium to transport the private key, it's wasted effort to lock down your medium for sending the passphrase
20:09<Nivex>Isn't that the whole point of CSRs?

22:06<rlankfo>apache is down, can't ssh in, to any linodes i have in fremont, and of course the only ip have approved right now for hte dashboard is one of the linodes

22:11<mbreslin>iptables fail?

22:15-!-ZeeO [] has joined #linode
22:15<rlankfo>whtas your opinion on disabling OOM killer?
22:16<@caker>you can't. you tune your apps to not OOM
22:16<@caker>!web title
22:16<linbot>caker: Login
22:16<rlankfo>possibly some sort of attack?
22:17<Nivex>well, technically you can alter the overcommit behavior to get around OOM killer invocation, but things get even more cranky
22:17<@caker>doesn't really matter ... you shouldn't have your config untuned enough so it will OOM under any circumstance
22:17<bob2>tl;dr if you're using mod_php you need to turn down serverlimit/maxclients/etc
22:17<@caker>keepalives off
22:18<rlankfo>hm ok haven't had any problems with both of these linodes, since 2010 probably
22:18<rlankfo>one is running mod_perl but there should literally be no traffic to it since i'm the only one that accesses it
22:19<rlankfo>i go to the store for a moment, come back, and both are fubar'd
22:19<rlankfo>anyway, caker what can i do on the first one with kernel panic? can you issue a reboot for me?

22:21<rlankfo>i think its time to move away from these 2 smaller linodes and migrate to a beefier one
22:21<bob2>rlankfo, to be clear, turning down maxclients and keepalives will most likely prevent the oom
22:21<bob2>(and needs to be done even if you get a bigger node)
22:21<rlankfo>bob2: its just strange its never happened before
22:22<@caker>still doesn't really matter ... if they were untuned in 2010 you've just been lucky :)
22:22<rlankfo>the server that was OOMing.. no one should have been Fing with it at all
22:22<rlankfo>probably should serve request tracker over vpn from now on anyway

22:32<rlankfo>people are out to get me, and they have hired people (fact)
22:32<bob2>ie for http you get x-forwarded-for, for tcp you get jack
22:32<nehalem>Thanks bob2!
22:33<SirSquidness>Crap, rlankfo knows about my peons. Time for plan delta.
22:33<mbreslin>plan delta = water baloons
22:34<bob2>nehalem, ps if you cname'd you may get an ipv6 address in x-forwarded-for
22:34<rlankfo>lol its seriously that petty man
22:34<SirSquidness>sssssh, mbreslin. Plans are meant to be secret!
22:34<rlankfo>a company i used to work for hired a "private i", i'm not even joking
22:35<rlankfo>another guy was recently fired from said company for being "in league" with me, never even talk to the guy, these guys are just paranoid beyond measure
22:35<rlankfo>they had server problems in september, i heard about it because they instantly decided i had something to do with it
22:36<rlankfo>its turning into harassment at this point
22:36<nehalem>bob2, thanks for the info, I get it :-)
22:39<Katana>people who screw with cable configurations on equipment when "it isn't working" and they don't know what the heck they're doing in the first place should be beaten
22:40<rlankfo>yep pretty sure there is some illegal activity going on here though
22:40<rlankfo>think i'm going to hire a 3rd party security company to do the audit
22:40<rlankfo>for now i'm just going to migrate everything

23:33<nehalem>I ask because I've deployed a few Ubuntu system with success, uptime over 3 months etc. (Only 3 months because of restarts)
23:33<auraka>bob2: most likely....although some of us are/were pretty cheap and those apps weren't critical but "required" rhel
23:34<auraka>nehalem: in all seriousness no linux distro is really going to have uptime problems if you properly configure it
23:35<auraka>what most of us joke about is how hard it is to configure and MAINTAIN each different distro
23:35<auraka>and some distros are better at updating and not breaking installed apps

23:36<tzury>hi all
23:37<tzury>multiple domains with SSL on a single server, is SNI just enough or shall I have dedicated IP per domain?
23:37<auraka>if you want something stable stick with a centos, debian stable, ubuntu lts....if you want bleeding edge go fedora, debian testing or ubuntu latest.....and if you want sleep sweats arch/gentoo
23:38<auraka>hope that helps
23:38<bob2>tzury, up to you to decide
23:38<bob2>tzury, old IE-on-windows users are boned by SNI
23:39<nehalem>Yes auraka, thanks. I'll probably stick to Ubuntu 10.04 for now
23:39<tzury>what about mobile devices such as android and blackberry?
23:40<auraka>good part of your choice you have free reign to make fun of arch users....feel free to exercise this right at anytime
23:40<auraka>tzury: they support SNI

23:41<bob2>depends on the version
23:41<tzury>teh black out) wikipedia now, thanks bob2
23:41<nehalem>SNI depends on if your users support it. Mobile devices usually suck
23:42<tzury>auraka+bob2 -- thanks
23:43<auraka>since wikipedia is still blacked out
23:43<tzury>this one show a different picture
23:43<zivester>can someone help me debug an ssh "Permission denied (publickey)." im trying to connect from a new client to a server.. im not sure if my client isn't setup right, or if my server isn't setup right... my client has an .ssh/ file... and my server has an .ssh/authorized_keys file... what am i missing?
23:43<bob2>if only the wikipedia blackout was trivially circumvented
23:43<tzury>run this of curse: $("body").children().toggle()
23:43<pharaun>akerl: depends
23:43<bob2>zivester, on client: ssh-copy-id user@remotehost
23:43<bob2>zivester, done
23:43<pharaun>bb does not support, i pasted a url other night bout it
23:44<pharaun>android prior to ics/honeycomb does not support
23:44<pharaun>iphone does
23:44<auraka>I forget...not everyone has ICS :-/...upgrade people!
23:44<praetorian>could if i could
23:45<bob2>auraka, ha ha ha
23:45<auraka>praetorian: you can...
23:45*zivester is an idiot, i wasn't connecting with the right user O_o tx bob
23:45<bob2>you can still buy phones that can't run ICS without hackery at best
23:45<auraka>so...don't buy ones that do
23:45-!-VladGh [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
23:45<praetorian>auraka: i dont want to have to root my phone just to do it
23:45<bob2>tl;dr letting carriers or phone handset manufacturers get involved in software == catastrophe
23:45*pharaun roots praetorian
23:45<praetorian>pharaun: oh baby.
23:46<praetorian>pharaun: feel that arch
23:46<auraka>and now you have an std :-/
23:46<bob2>auraka, how do you deal with the manufacturers who just lie?
23:46<bob2>e.g. galaxy S
23:46<auraka>lie about which galaxy nexus has 4.0...I read up on it...and bought it...problem solved
23:47<auraka> mean carriers like ATT who is calling every phone 4G?
23:47<praetorian>whats an ATT?
23:47<auraka>tin can and string.....4G!
23:47<bob2>carriers who say/imply they will provide software updates and then don't
23:48<praetorian>do it the apple way. you never know when your phone will be unsupported.
23:48<auraka>oh.......I'm not sure....who is doing that? All of them? Can you pick one that doesn't?
23:48<Heron>pff, apple's pretty consistently stopped caring about phones after 2 years
23:48<mbreslin>auraka: any phone that doesn't start with the word nexus, pretty much
23:48<auraka>praetorian: say what you will but apple's play is much better than androids
23:48<bob2>auraka, this is all pretty complicated for normal people who just want aphone
23:48-!-tzury [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
23:48<mbreslin>you can't depend on any particular timeframe for an ota update from any carrier
23:48<bob2>that isn't /already abandoned by upstream/
23:49<auraka>so...people need to educate themselves before they buy
23:49<bob2>or, manufactuers and carriers need to be 1000% less fuckwitty
23:49<bob2>and not create a broken market
23:49<auraka>phones are evolving so quickly now kind of like computers back in the day so it isn't much of a suprise the software releases aren't keeping up
23:49<bob2>yes it is
23:49<bob2>it is absolutely unreasonable to be shipping a phone now that can't run ICS
23:50<auraka>also....there is no incentive for handset manufacturers to update your phone...they'll happily sell you a new one
23:50<bob2>and that is a thing that is occurring
23:50<auraka>why is it unreasonable...plenty of people want cheap phones that may not have the best boost, republicwireless, virgin, etc.
23:51<auraka>these are low margain that may not get the best support....if you don't like it don't buy a nice shiny iphone for the most part
23:52<auraka>if you remember back in the days before iphones many of us had to run winmo phones and upgrading those weren't trivial either
23:53<praetorian>i never had a winmo phone
23:53<praetorian>i valued my user experience.
23:53<bob2>sure, but only nerd bought them, and they knew how much they'd hate it
23:53<pharaun>never had winmo phone either
23:53<auraka>praetorian: consider yourself lucky
23:53<mbreslin>auraka: the point is there is 1 current generation phone that can be depended on for timely updates
23:53<mbreslin>that's a horrible situation
23:53<mbreslin>ok fine two.
23:54<auraka>what is the tother...crackberry?
23:54<mbreslin>the phone you have
23:54<auraka>oh....well we don't know how well windows will do this time around
23:55<pharaun>i used crackberry
23:55<pharaun>it was a dumb phone, sidekick, crackberry, and now iphone
23:56<auraka>i like my nice 4g speeds
23:57<bob2>windowsphoneseries7 is already letting carriers fuck up updates
23:57<pharaun>even crackberry allowed carriers to fuck up updates
23:57<mbreslin>i like the tile look on the phones actually but i'd never consider buying one
23:57<pharaun>i had to hack mine to get a newer os on
