00:49<Solver>good point

00:49<Solver>I missed aussie meat pies while I lived overseas
00:50*HedgeMage frowns at her sweet tooth
00:50<Solver>otoh Jamaican patties (available more on the eastern side of North America than the west) are great
00:50<Solver>by a crazy coincidence my wife is Jamaican so caribbean food features in our house quite a bit
00:51<Solver>so cute to watch our young duaghter tuck in to ox tail and curry goat, with rice and peas :)

00:51*Solver is at work so will check it out later, ta for the warning
00:52<dominikh>not worth it :P
00:52<chesty>it's a picture of pasties
00:52<@heckman>fake :/
00:53<HedgeMage>I'd just like to point out that: 1) I'm not the one who went there this time and 2) fake and WTF is it with women who look fragile? totally not hot on either count
00:53<nate>chesty: there's no nipples or areola, as far as TV would be concerned it's maybe TV-14 w/ an adult supervision warning, totally SFW
00:53<StevenK>Agreed, totally fake
00:53<nate>possible typoing
00:53*nate checks
00:54<nate>maybe not, I feel slightly more intelligent.

01:24<utterglee>hey guys
01:24<utterglee>good morning
01:25<utterglee>do you know of anything in linux that blocks emails from going out but logs them somewhere so I can see?
01:25<utterglee>I need to test a s/w that involves sending tons of mail to 'groups' of people
01:26<utterglee>essentially, something like this, only working on Linux
01:26<dwfreed>any broken mailserver will do that
01:26<utterglee>don't be so judgemental akerl :(
01:26-!-Gnintendo [] has joined #linode
01:26<tonyyarusso>utterglee: Just break your DNS
01:26<utterglee>this is actually a communications tool for a company, internal s/w
01:26<tonyyarusso>Otherwise, yes, you could do this with iptables
01:27<dwfreed>tonyyarusso: or your sending of mail; iptables -A OUTPUT -p tcp --dport 25 -j REJECT --reject-with tcp-reset
01:27<utterglee>dwfreed, okay, and then I need to check the logs..? cool stuff, trying out
01:27-!-alnewkirk [] has joined #linode
01:27<dwfreed>yeah, just look at your mailserver's logs
01:28<tonyyarusso>It'll try to send it, fail, then "defer" the messages.

03:07<kyhwana>kyrias: where?
03:08<akerl>I don't have IPv6 access at my house
03:08<akerl>Well, not native
03:08<kyhwana>kyrias: whats your IP?
03:08<kyhwana>also pastebin a mtr
03:08-!-seanh-ansca [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
03:09<dcraig>I can reach a london linode via ipv6 just fine
03:10<kyrias>v4 is v6 should be 2a01:7e00::f03c:91ff:fe70:2110
03:10<kyrias>And never done a mtr
03:11<akerl>kyrias: Pastebin the output of `ip -6 addr` and `ip -6 route`?
03:12<dwfreed>kyrias: also `ip6tables-save` and `sysctl -a | grep forwarding`
03:12<kyhwana>kyrias: etc
03:12<utterglee>xchat right click has all sorts of advanced functions, but no simple 'copy text'
03:12*utterglee facepalm
03:13<utterglee>Ctrl+C doesn't work of course
03:13<akerl>click and drag, yo
03:13<kyhwana>kyrias: yeah, you don't have a ipv6 there
03:14<akerl>Yea, you aren't bringing up your address. I give 50/50 split to "blocking ICMP" and "Not accepting RAs"
03:14<akerl>Well, "Not accepting RAs because you have forwarding on"
03:14<dwfreed>and that's why I asked for the commands I asked for :D
03:15<kyrias>dwfeed any debian package for those? :p
03:15<dwfreed>kyrias: both should already be installed
03:15<retro|blah>mtr-tiny in debian
03:15<akerl>Both are pretty standard... does debian not have iptables utilities installed by default?
03:15<retro|blah>oh sorry
03:15<akerl>retro|blah: MTR isn't useful here
03:15<retro|blah>forgot we're way past that
03:16<kyrias>bleh. slow internets, sorry
03:16-!-sathirei [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
03:18<akerl>Yea... You're dropping all v6 traffic not to/from localhost
03:18<akerl>Which, shockingly, is preventing the network from talking to you
03:20<kyrias>One might ask why it does that, since I just rebuilt it a few minutes ago
03:20-!-desc|zenbook [~heh@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
03:20<akerl>? Did you install anything firewally?
03:20<akerl>modify and firewall settings?
03:20<akerl>etc etc
03:20<kyrias>I did not
03:21<kyrias>hmr, meh, might as well try rebuilding it

03:49<EugeneKay>No clue
03:52<EugeneKay>Hah, and my answer is in the man page.

04:07<chesty>you would think twitter would have generic sql schema available, but no, everyone has to invent one themselves
04:08<dwfreed>iirc, flaskr is even an official flask example
04:09<akerl>There isn't really much to "invent"...
04:09<akerl>That's pretty much as simple as schema gets, beyond key/value
04:09<chesty>thanks, that's very short, twitter has 100s of fields
04:09<chesty>akerl: yes, but you still have to type it all out
04:09-!-seanh-ansca [] has joined #linode
04:11<supine>EugeneKay: I've used keepalived a lot but not in the last 4 years, though something tells me it hasn't changed much in the meantime
04:11<chesty>and you have to work out what type and how big a field needs to be

04:13-!-brennannovak [] has joined #linode
04:14<EugeneKay>I'm just trying to sort out how to (sanely) deal with openvpn+keepalived for a LAN. notify_master/notify_backup look to be a suitable place to hook in for fiddling with NAT rules
04:14-!-k00pa [] has left #linode []
04:15<kuzetsa>EugeneKay: oh... you can just set it to 5
04:15<EugeneKay>Set what?
04:16<kuzetsa>I've found that "5" is an optimum value to use for openvpn & keepalived
04:16<chesty>11 is better, I'm not sure why you need keepalived for openvpn, I would have thought ospf would work ok
04:16<kuzetsa>five internets </trollish joking>
04:16<EugeneKay>keepalived is running for the benefit of the LANs behind these router/gateways
04:17<supine>EugeneKay: if you want actions on state change then notify_X is a good way to hook that in
04:17-!-Ashwath [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
04:17<EugeneKay>Yeah, I'm writing a short script to add/remove a few SNAT rules when running as BACKUP so that the routing back to clients on the secondary server works properly.
04:18<EugeneKay>The only reason it's a problem is I have openvpn clients with a LAN behind them, too. Yay, routing.
04:18<EugeneKay>Runnng a full-blown OSPF here would be overkill
04:19<supine>EugeneKay: just make sure the actions are deterministic and don't rely on any particular state being present
04:19-!-chris_ [] has joined #linode
04:19-!-chris_ is now known as ca
04:19<supine>EugeneKay: because you'll never know for sure the sequence they will get called in, particularly if there is flapping
04:20<EugeneKay>Yeah, the script is gonna have a sanity check so it won't try to run more than every 5s
04:20-!-seanh-ansca [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
04:21<EugeneKay>Actually.... I might be able to make this work with a bit of routing voodoo on the master node, via metric
04:23<Peng> <- No Ubuntu 12.04? :(
04:23<EugeneKay>The 10.04 instructiosn oughta work well enough
04:23<akerl>If you're gonna go custom, go all the way :)

04:30<chesty>good enough for government work
04:32<Peng>Linode's 10.04 instructions definitely have differences from how EC2 handles 12.04. Whether those differences matter I do not know.
04:32-!-david_padlock [] has joined #linode

04:34<david_padlock>I need to grep - <6>[ 829.900000] usblp0:
04:34<david_padlock>where the part between the bracket changes
04:34<david_padlock>the guide I am looking at said - dmesg |grep "<6>usblp0"
04:34<david_padlock>but that wont do it
04:35<Peng>david_padlock: dmesg | grep '<6>' | grep usblp0

04:39<linbot>New news from forum: php mail question re default smtp server in Email/SMTP Related Forum <> || Kerrighed? in Feature Request/Bug Report <>
04:39<david_padlock>and any idea how I could change PRINTEROFF="<6>usblp0: removed" to include the chaning part between brackets
04:39<david_padlock>this is a init script
04:39<Peng>grep in an init script?
04:42<Yaakov>grep "<6>\[ .*\] usblp0:"
04:42<Yaakov>Is more specific.
04:43<Yaakov>I would use Perl, personally.
04:44<chesty>you would use a pathological existential rubbish lister?

04:53<akerl>cp -R $(ls | grep) /home/peng
04:53<akerl>In linux, the one with the most command substitution and pipes wins
04:54<kyhwana>I had a bunch of fio benchmarks named with what they were, ie <blocksize> <controller> <drives> etc, but using mcp I can copy the bits I want into a directory based on the simple regexes, etc

10:31<@heckman>EugeneKay: If you set it to the IP address the PTR becomes the IP.
10:31<@heckman>It doesn't return NXDOMAIN
10:31<EugeneKay>I thought that those were then reaped periodically by the panel
10:32<@heckman>That'd be news to me.
10:32<gparent>My workaround is kinda shit but you can always make a dummy A record.

10:32<EugeneKay>That's basically what setting it to the IP does, without the extra A record

11:41<eren>why are ssl certificates expensive? All they have to do is to securite the private key and sign it digitally
11:41<EugeneKay>Artifical market.
11:42<EugeneKay>Look into StartSSL
11:42<eren>just because my browser does not recognize my self-signed certificate, I cannot secure my user's data
11:42<EugeneKay>Class 1(basic certs) are free, Class 2(wildcard, multiple domains) is $60 for the verification(two forms of ID are required), unlimited certs for a year(within reason).
11:43<eren>well, i will probably need wildcard and $60 is stil expensive
11:43<EugeneKay>Get a job, hippie. ;-)
11:44<trippeh>What you pay for (if paying at all) is them verifying your identity
11:44<eren>EugeneKay: it's not related with a 'job' or 'hipipness'
11:44<eren>even if I earn 10k, I will still think that it's expensive
11:45<eren>and PKI is just broken, we have seen from many examples. DigiNotar, Comodo, etc
11:45<trippeh>The "higher classes" of certs implies more trust and more thurough identity checks
11:45<EugeneKay>Yup, sure is. $60 is still the best price you're gonan get.
11:46<EugeneKay>You can start your own CA based around the principals of free as in beer for everybody, but good luck making enough money to keep it alive(and getting the certs installed in major browsers/OSes)
11:46<trippeh>Lets get DNSSEC and DANE up and running :)
11:46<eren>EugeneKay: yeah, these major browsers are pain in the arse
11:46<eren>demmit, PKI is just broken :)
11:47<trippeh>At least trust is pushed to the domain owner then
11:47<eren>trippeh: yeah, at least
11:47<trippeh>Rather than some random third parties
11:47<@heckman>eren: feel free to design, implement, and push a better system. I'm sure we'll all be very appreciative.

13:20<@qmr>taylorleejones: Resize or remove disk images on the destination
13:21<@heckman>taylorleejones: when you clone, it needs to have the unallocated space for the the disk images on the destination Linode.
13:21<@heckman>So ideally you'd be cloning to a Linode that has no disk images / configuration profiles attached

13:24<taylorleejones>*hangs head in shame*
13:24<@heckman>If you can afford downtime on the other Linode, you can shrink the disk images down and clone.
13:25<@heckman>shrinking requires the Linode to be powered down
13:25<@heckman>It also does require that you do not have more than 24GB of used space internal to the disk image.
13:25<taylorleejones>We do need to shrink, but we won't be able to do that presently. I appreciate the advice guys.
13:25<taylorleejones>Definitely have less than 24GB in use - so that won't be a problem.

16:31<Maff>Hi, IPv6 connectivity appears to have suddenly and inexplicably disappeared from a linode I administrate in London
16:31<kyhwana>Maff: do you have a global ipv6 address on that box?
16:31<gbit>caker, I should set this on MPM configuration? Or in httpd.conf?
16:31<Maff>It was working perfectly before
16:32<Maff>so yes
16:32<@caker>gbit: in the configuration section for the MPM you are running
16:32<hawk>Maff: But it isn't working now... so something is different *somewhere*
16:32<@caker>Yaakov: hello
16:32<kyhwana>Maff: ... pastebin the output of "ip addr" and "route -6"
16:32<Maff>cycling eth0 down and up did nothing to restore connectivity, it has an uptime of 278+ days, and nobody but me logs into it
16:32<Yaakov>caker: Snowy.
16:32<@caker>none for us, yet.
16:32<kyhwana>Maff: also whats your v6 IP?
16:32<Yaakov>Icky snow here.
16:32<Yaakov>Ugly, ugly.
16:33<gbit>caker, sorry to ask that, but how can I now which I'm running?

16:33-!-bbeausej [] has joined #linode
16:33<Maff>the server should have IPv6 address 2a01:7e00::f03c:91ff:fedf:d7e2
16:33<gbit>caker, thanks
16:33<Maff>but it's mysteriously disappeared
16:33<kyhwana>Maff: so.. you don't have a public v6 IP on eth0.
16:33-!-azizur [] has joined #linode
16:34-!-Fangrille [] has joined #linode
16:34<Maff>Not at the moment, however the server had been happily serving over IPv6 using the public address 2a01:7e00::f03c:91ff:fedf:d7e2 until today
16:34<akerl>Maff: Can you pastebin `ip6tables-save` and `sysctl -a | grep -i 'forwarding'`?
16:35<Maff>akerl: What would checking iptables and forwarding rules have to do with whether or not eth0 is assigned an IPv6 address?
16:35-!-bbeausej [] has quit []
16:36<akerl>Maff: Because your /128 IPv6 address is brought up by SLAAC magic; yours isn't up and you have no default v6 route, and the most common causes are "you're blocking icmpv6" or "you have v6 forwarding on, which turns off accept_ras"
16:36<kyhwana>akerl: ahh, that's what it was. (From yesterday, I think it was)

21:25<Nightmare>Typo: You can also prepay for services on the account tab -> make a payment
21:26<Typo>yeah but I dont know what the total will be, ill shoot em an email and request an invoice early if its possibe, i do have a faint memory of paying through the first month and then a year so im sure your all righ and it will bill on april 1
21:27<Typo>yep, billing page confirms it
21:27<Nightmare>Typo: What plan is it? 512?
