00:12-!-toothe [] has joined #linode
00:13<toothe>what are linode's prices on file storage?
00:13<toothe>I was thinking of setting up a file server using linode
00:13<toothe>"in the cloud"
00:13-!-wheatie [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
00:15<dcraig>there isn't a separate file storage service
00:16<toothe>I guess what I'm asking is, what's the price for disk space.
00:16<dcraig>42 cents per GB?
00:16<toothe>is it grown dynamically?
00:16<toothe>or do I have ato allocate a bunch of space
00:16<toothe>and then add...okay
00:17<dcraig>you could buy a linode vps and store files on it
00:17<toothe>that's waht I mean.
00:17<dcraig>the $20 linode comes with 48 GB of space
00:18<kyhwana>toothe: It's on the front page of the website
00:18<toothe>ahh, okay
00:22<kuzetsa>hmm... so google drive is like 5 cents per month per megabyte, smallest package is $4.99 for 100 GB
00:22<dwfreed>they also don't have an official Linux client
00:23<kuzetsa>hmm, plus it looks like google drive's pricing is higher for businesses
00:24-!-jrhorn424 [] has joined #linode
00:24<kuzetsa>smallest package is $4 for 20 GB if you're a business entity (so 20 cents per gigabyte)
00:27<kuzetsa>dwfreed: does "any web browser" count as a cross-platform client?
00:27<kuzetsa>'cause you can upload, download, view, and edit most google drive content from browser
00:27<dwfreed>kuzetsa: no, because headless servers shouldn't need to have X installed
00:28<kuzetsa>mmm, good point
00:28<kuzetsa>I suspect it wouldn't work well with links / lynx
00:28<dwfreed>s/well/at all/
00:28<dwfreed>they don't have Javascript support

01:51<jasonmchristos>Does anyone have that page which describes how to backup the entire image through SSH?
01:52-!-ddf [] has joined #linode
01:52<jasonmchristos>dwfreed: Now is this going to be able to be run on hardware or must it be run inide a virtual environment?
01:52<XReaper>jasonmchristos: preferrably in finnix
01:53<dwfreed>jasonmchristos: there's no difference, as far as it is concerned
01:53<XReaper>which you can access using lish :)
01:53<XReaper>hmm, anything special i should follow to roll my own finnix?
01:56<jasonmchristos>XReaper: What is finnix?
01:57<jasonmchristos>There are 4hrs for me to get the Image out and onto my laptop.
01:57<XReaper>jasonmchristos: it's what you get when you boot into rescue mode :)
01:58<jasonmchristos>XReaper: tell me more
01:58-!-corge [fdd@2a02:2f0e:400f:ffff::bc18:4bf4] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
02:02<jasonmchristos>Ok I mean on the client end XReaper
02:03<XReaper>could use linux, preferrably
02:03<XReaper>there are windows tools if you're stuck with that
02:03<XReaper>or osx :P
02:05-!-espen_ is now known as espen
02:06<jasonmchristos>SO this is green cube lingo
02:08<jasonmchristos>Is this the half brain man from texas?
02:09-!-Jippi [] has joined #linode
02:10<jasonmchristos>This is basically the same thing as amazon except $20 per month for what is free on amazon.
02:11<jasonmchristos>Correct me if I am wrong.
02:12<jasonmchristos>My SSL connections keep getting interrupted and it may be at the software layer this is a military live cd which connects to VMWARE servers.
02:13<jasonmchristos>I have about 3:30mins to get the software from linode to test if the interruptions are coming from software or hardware layer in the ISP
02:14<jasonmchristos>I don't care if this is the half brain man from texas, just asking.
02:15<jasonmchristos>XReaper: "hah" ?
02:15<XReaper>never mind :)
02:15<jasonmchristos>Come on let's go!
02:15<jasonmchristos>go time
02:16*kyhwana blinks
02:17<XReaper>kyhwana: kiwi
02:17*XReaper eats a kiwi fruit
02:19<jasonmchristos>Ok I am in the terminal in finnix mode.
02:19<jasonmchristos>First time I m completely unfamiliar with the controls.
02:23<jasonmchristos>dwfreed: What is the smallest default disk image?
02:25<jasonmchristos>BUt it is going to use dd so it is the raw disk I need to know what size to allocate the raw disk
02:32<jasonmchristos>It is asking for a credit card number already 15 minutes into it
02:33<swiftkey>whats the difference between systems admin and a systems engineer?
02:34-!-mr_flea [] has joined #linode
02:34<jasonmchristos>What a joke.
02:34<dwfreed>jasonmchristos: the smallest size you can use is going to depend on the distro you deploy
02:34<dwfreed>mr_flea: why hello there
02:34<jasonmchristos>It is free for 4hrs but after 15-30 mins a credit card is needed.
02:34<dwfreed>jasonmchristos: uh, no
02:35<dwfreed>if you don't want to convert to a paid account, you never have to enter your credit card information; the trial lasts 4 hours
02:35<jasonmchristos>dwfreed: uh well after I deleted the linode and try to recreate another it is now asking for a credit card to (continue the free trial)
02:35<jasonmchristos>uh is that kicking the tires?
02:35<dwfreed>you shouldn't have deleted it
02:35<dwfreed>because you only get 1 trial Linode
02:36<jasonmchristos>dwfreed: well it didnt say that and I wanted to change the image size
02:36<dwfreed>so you delete the disk images, not the Linode...
02:36<dwfreed>and it should be pretty clear that you only get 1 trial Linode
02:37<jasonmchristos>no it should not
02:37<jasonmchristos>unless it is stated how shall it be clear?
02:37-!-jesus_ [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
02:38<jasonmchristos>there are now zero linodes
02:38<jasonmchristos>so adding one is still 1 linode
02:39<kyhwana>Well, if you delete your trial linode, it's implied you dont want it anymore, so..
02:40<jasonmchristos>even the oil change companies can get the "whichever comes first" part in writing without claiming it should be clear
02:41<sandeep>you were using the trial to download their default disk image?
02:41<jasonmchristos>but linode
02:42<jasonmchristos>it should be clear what is never documented ....
02:42<dcraig>oh god you broke it !
02:43<jasonmchristos>yes I want a default disk image
02:43<jasonmchristos>so that i may keep a secure connection to the server
02:43-!-Ikaros [] has quit [Quit: Be right back]
02:44-!-Ikaros [] has joined #linode
02:44<jasonmchristos>dwfreed: are you a bot ployed by linode?
02:45<dwfreed>are you?
02:45<jasonmchristos>let me guess "should be clear"
02:45-!-Hoggs [] has joined #linode
02:46<jasonmchristos>Here comes Hoggs!
02:47<jasonmchristos>New support excuse for the day "should be clear"
02:49<jasonmchristos>Amazon offers a free trial and the v-machines can be deleted and new ones made.
02:49<dwfreed>to quote the welcome page, "a Linode cloud server"
02:50<hipsters_>if you're so in love with amazon why don't you marry them
02:50<jasonmchristos>Is there anything better about linode that warrents $20 month?
02:50<jasonmchristos>I was going to "kick the tires"
02:50<Hoggs>faster hardware, better support
02:50<jasonmchristos>But I guess "should be clear"
02:51<Ikaros>I think that's enough for me right there
02:51<Ikaros>I don't put out $20/mo, I put out $40/mo - I found them good enough for TWO, not just one. And I'm considering adding a 3rd into my lineup, because it's well worth what I pay for.
02:52<hipsters_>i have five now :v
02:52<hipsters_>a lot less than some i bet
02:52<Hoggs>I tend to get petter performance from my linode than I do from dedicated servers.
02:53<Hoggs>Won't get close at amazon :p
02:53<XReaper>hipsters_: quite
02:53<XReaper>hipsters_: some have 20+ :D
02:53<XReaper>and a few larger ones
02:54<sandeep>amazon is also more expensive
02:54<dwfreed>especially when you factor in transfer and EBS
02:54<dwfreed>(and EBS is slow as hell)
02:55<XReaper>dwfreed: yeah, i wonder if the nodes even have a 10gig backhaul
02:55<XReaper>to the ebs
02:56<XReaper>amazon transfer is expensive
02:56<XReaper>i did 1.8TB last month on linode
03:01<jasonmchristos>HOw does the support work for linode?
03:01<jasonmchristos>So I've opened a ticket. Let me guess "should be clear"
03:01-!-jesus [] has joined #linode
03:02<dcraig>you submit a ticket and as you're typing the ticket, AJAX magic allows the support people to read it as you type, so they prepare a response to your questions, which you receive immediately after hitting the "submit" button
03:02-!-mode/#linode [+b *!*@] by ChanServ
03:02-!-jasonmchristos was kicked from #linode by ChanServ [You are not permitted on this channel]
03:02<dcraig>depending on the synchronization of various clocks, you occasionally receive an answer before ticket submission
03:03<XReaper>that was the answer
03:04*Ikaros laughs
03:04<Ikaros>Another troll disposed of?
03:05<Hoggs>dcraig: Actually, or kidding? O_o
03:06<dcraig>Hoggs, I don't know... it might be true
03:06<Ikaros>You don't know how much joy I take in either watching that happen or actually doing it myself, but either way it's fun to watch trash get thrown out.
03:07<dcraig>a good kick message would have been "looks like your free trial just expired!"
03:07<dcraig>ops, if you ever need help with kick mesage copywriting, just let me know

03:24*dcraig tickles xreaper around a bit with a large yellowfin tuna
03:25<dcraig>how do you like them apples?
03:25*XReaper eats the tuna
03:26<kuzetsa>XReaper: I was curious so I looked at that link
03:26<kuzetsa>most of the pages under than nav menu are "coming soon" but the one I loved the most was this -->
03:26<kuzetsa>"if you don't know how.... haghahahahaha I love it"
03:26<kuzetsa>yay IRC :)
03:26<dcraig>once you click a link to another page, it's impossible to navigate back to the "start" page
03:26<dcraig>(without your back button, of course)

03:47-!-eagles [] has joined #linode
03:47<eagles>hey guys :)
03:48<eagles>hey guys what does one need to do to be able to submit a how to for inclusion on the linode documentation site
03:50<eagles>anyone lol
03:51<WormDude>eagles, you might want to put that on the wiki
03:51-!-WormDude is now known as WormFood
03:51<eagles>the community one
03:52<WormFood>since that is the only one you can edit
03:52<eagles>i think though it would be beneficial as community documentation
03:52<WormFood>there may be legal reasons why they can't put your how-to on the documentation side (like copyright)...I don't know
03:52<dcraig>you could cut and paste it into the suggestion box on the library homepage
03:52<eagles>good idea :)
03:53<eagles>i might just do that
03:53<WormFood>and if you feel it's really helpful, then put it on the wiki too
03:53-!-hipsterslapfight [] has joined #linode

03:54<WormFood>personally I feel the wiki is better, because then other people can fix it, update it, and add to it....if it's in the linode documentation section, then only linode employees can do all that stuff, and eventually it will get stale
03:56-!-hipsters_ [] has joined #linode

10:53<@jchen>Ahiru: what ip address did you put into the monitoring check?

11:27<@jchen>lame name, but it actually turned out really nice
11:27<gparent>lmao no kidding
11:27<synapt>EugeneKay: I think it probably has more to do with the fact that the oil just kind of collectively disipates with no way to 'exhaust' usually, where as any form of fan setup you at least can design where it intakes and exhausts
11:27<gparent>sounds like some bad wu tang clan spinoff

12:54<@akerl>Sounds like a plan
12:54<gparent>Alright, good day.
12:54<eagles>basically in a nut shell SASL doenst have AUTH showing up when i telnet
12:54<eagles>and the mail server is rejecting emails that im sending to it from google
12:54<gparent>It won't show up until you STARTTLS I thought
12:55<gparent>depending on config
12:55<eagles>its running already
12:55<gparent>I mean STARTTLS as in the thing that promotes your session to TLS from plaintext after you connect to port 25
12:55<eagles>this is on my server 250-STARTTLS 250-AUTH PLAIN LOGIN 250-AUTH=PLAIN LOGIN
12:55<linbot>New news from forum: Disappointed from the customer service and from the backup. in Customer Testimonials <>
12:55<eagles>whats missing on the other server no auth plain login showing up for some reason
12:56<gparent>And what if you use openssl to connect and perform STARTTLS?
12:56<gparent>does AUTH show then?
12:56<gparent>So you connected with openssl s_client?
12:56<eagles>im using saslauthd
12:57<gparent>on my server AUTH doesn't show up until I STARTTLS. Which you can't find out connecting through plain telnet unless you're some sort of amazing keyboard warrior ninja who can do SSL on the fly
12:58<eagles>ok how do i start ttls

15:09<gparent>pasting the config of what's broken will help, though I'm trying to solve some stupid Clipper things at the moment
15:10<gparent>did you check if there was the full path of what it's trying to read in error log? I think error should state permissions denied if it were a permission problem so maybe just look if the file is actually there relative to (I presume) your web root?

21:54<HoopyCat>apache can do it too (note: if you're using mod_php and therefore forced to use mpm-prefork, your life will suck)
21:57<asdri>still doesnt
21:58<asdri>my binding all port are above 1024 now
21:58<asdri>but hey thanks for answering my questions!

22:34<thomas>hello, provisioning Linode using API. what's the correct way to reboot after the stackscript is done? putting reboot at the end of the stacksript causes the stack script to get executed after every reload - so goes in circles
22:40<@akerl>thomas: "shutdown"
22:41<jed>[ -f /root/whatever_the_stackscript_log_file_is_called_I_forget ] || {
22:41<thomas>do i need to remove something from init.d that would cause the stackscript to get re-executed on reboot?
22:41<@akerl>jed: that's like 100% too much work
22:41<@akerl>Just shutdown and smile
22:42<jed>it also implements the desired behavior as requested
22:42<thomas>anker - shutdown won't reboot it
22:42<@akerl>thomas: Yes it will
22:42<jed>after a delay for lassie :P
22:42<thomas>ah, the watchdog will reboot it
22:42<thomas>and it won't kick off the stackscript again?
22:42<@akerl>jed: I tested this the last time we had a huge debate; shutdown by default queues the halt to happen in 1 minute
22:43<jed>my solution is more workable because it guards against every scenario
22:43<@akerl>So if you run it as the very last thing, it queues a halt for $now+1minute, the stackscript exits happily, then the system halts, then lassie brings it back
22:43<jed>you can write one stackscript and not worry how it's invoked
22:44<thomas>jed, not sure what your fix does? you're checking if the log file exists and?
22:44<jed>the braces are where your code would go, it's the "or" on that conditional
22:44<jed>you could also do && exit 0, but I think that loops
22:44<@akerl>If that looped, yours would too, would it not?
22:45<jed>I don't remember how stackscripts work
22:45<@akerl>(I don't think your way would loop)
22:45<jed>I thought a too-fast-death resulted in redo
22:45<jed>been a while
22:45<thomas>jed, so put my code between the { } and where does it reboot?
22:45<@akerl>If it does, I've never experienced it. that said, I haven't written many stackscripts that exit immediately
22:45<thomas>sorry guys.. appreciate the help
22:46<thomas>keep the reboot in the script?
22:46<jed>thomas: I don't want to feed you code, I'd rather you understood the concept and what you're getting into
22:46<jed>I'm just saying test for the stackscript log file, if present, don't do the rest of what you're about to do
22:46<thomas>right, i'm trying to understand how ur code works.
22:46<jed>it's one solution, akerl has another
22:46<thomas>i got it.
22:46<jed>the stackscript execution engine captures stdout into a log somewhere in /root, if I recall
22:46<dwfreed>you need to delay the shutdown in a subshell from a stackscript
22:46<thomas>and the file check will block until the log file disappears?
22:46<@akerl>jed: I'm not sure I'm a fan of your way because it means the stackscript still gets hooked in for the second boot
22:47<jed>dwfreed: welcome to 90 seconds ago
22:47<dwfreed>( sleep 10; shutdown ) &
22:47<@akerl>dwfreed: o.O
22:47<@akerl>See above for enlightenment on what `shutdown` does
22:47<jed>yeah, wtf
22:47<thomas>anker - so ur solution is shutdown at the end of the script.. which schedules it 1 min later, shutsdown, lassie reboots

22:47<@akerl>jed: Yours definitely covers more bases where inclusion and other fanciness are concerned, though
22:48<jed>dwfreed: strongly advise `man shutdown`

22:49<dwfreed>sorry, even my command is wrong, but 'shutdown' by itself will not work: "A lot of users forget to give the time argument and are then puzzled by the error message shutdown produces. The time argument is mandatory; in 90 percent of all cases this argument will be the word now."
22:49<@akerl>The time argument is definitely not mandatory
22:49<jed>god, talking in here sometimes is like talking to cardboard boxes
22:49*kyhwana gets the cardboard boxes wet
22:49<jed>fuck this
22:51<@akerl>dwfreed: <-- I promise you, it works just fine
22:51<dwfreed>akerl: perhaps on arch, where it just tells systemd you want to shut down, but on distros like debian (in particular debian 6, where I just tested this) it is:
