00:26<warewolf>watch, you're going to be able to hit a button and switch between MacOS and Winders on the new iMacs in a few months

01:40<fo0bar>hmmm, no PNI/SSE3 in the imackertoshes
01:40<fo0bar>unless darwin calls it something else
01:41[~]mikegrb calls fo0bar fo0bark
01:41<fo0bar>I'm just an idiot

02:35<tronix>time to buy imacs. :-)
02:35<tronix>was thinking about one the other day.
02:36<tronix>(I've had the first gen imacs; not very extensible but still nice machines)
02:41[~]Neurosis smashes imac
02:41[~]Neurosis burns imac
02:41[~]Neurosis die imac die
02:43[~][|^__^|] sticks with his thinkpad for a while
02:43<[|^__^|]>the whole point of using linode is that I don't *need* any new computers
02:48<taupehat>my silly bMotion bot has been happily talking to #freenode users all day now =]
02:49<taupehat>they don't appear to have noticed
02:49<[|^__^|]>megahal HO
02:49<taupehat>this isn't even megahal
02:49<[|^__^|]>man, I remember setting up a megahal called "nakedgirl" and putting it in #sex on some italian network
02:49<[|^__^|]>and laughing myself to tears
02:50<[|^__^|]>send ur pic
02:50<[|^__^|]>no u send ur pic
02:50<[|^__^|]>ok im sending pic
02:50<[|^__^|]>wheres the pic
02:50<[|^__^|]>u sed ud send ur pic
02:50<[|^__^|]>no u send ur pic
02:50<[|^__^|]>and of course it was good at keeping the languages separate
02:50<taupehat>you remember that skype prank?
02:50<[|^__^|]>italian, german, and english
02:50<[|^__^|]>but then seth schoen would talk to it and teach it latin and esperanto proverbs
02:50<taupehat>the one where you could set two dudes up to talk to one another but they thought they were talking to a chick
02:51<[|^__^|]>so sometimes the italian would switch into this lofty latin/esperanto stuff
02:51<[|^__^|]>the best part is that the bot would learn to speak like a horny rude guy in whatever language
02:51<[|^__^|]>so naturally it'd end up insisting that the conversant is gay
02:51<[|^__^|]>NO IM NOT GAY UR GAY
02:52<[|^__^|]>and of course it'd hurl accusations out of the blue that these guys were bots
02:52<taupehat>if I had a dollar for everytime I saw that running the skype prank
02:52<taupehat>19:55 <skiddieleet> would you ask in the channel if they could voice
02:52<taupehat> everyone instead of the last two people who joined?
02:52<[|^__^|]>the skype prank seems uninteresting
02:52<[|^__^|]>the bot was great because it was relentless
02:52<taupehat>oh no
02:52<[|^__^|]>it kept dozens of conversations going at once, and applied what it learned from one to another
02:53<taupehat>the skype prank was hilarious
02:53<taupehat>I ran it for quite a while
02:53<taupehat>and was blue in the face laughing
02:53<[|^__^|]>maybe I'll set up the troll megahal again some day
02:53<warewolf>that skype prank url is broken
02:53<[|^__^|]>until then... sleep
02:53<taupehat>try bMotion
02:54<taupehat>it's subtle, and not overly-chatty
02:54<warewolf>megahal responds every time it sees something
02:54<taupehat>bMotion is a lot more quiet
02:54<taupehat>which is how I can get away with leaving one in #freenode
02:54[~]Neurosis loves chatterbots
02:54[~]mikegrb conciders publishing a dnsbl
02:54<warewolf>speaking of
02:54<taupehat>mikegrb: just use the one on my website
02:54<@mikegrb>mmm cake
02:55<@mikegrb>taupehat: dnsbl != website
02:55<@mikegrb>I have plenty of data
02:55<warewolf>bmotion == eggdrop
02:55<warewolf>== the suck
02:55<taupehat>megahal needs eggy too
02:55[~]Neurosis loathes eggdrops
02:55<warewolf>don't argue with me boy
02:55<taupehat>I've got mine chrooted
02:55<taupehat>so w/e
02:56<warewolf>... interesting.
02:56<warewolf>megahal release version 9.1.1
02:56[~]warewolf downloads
02:58<@linbot>warewolf: Error: "@#$" is not a valid command.
02:58<warewolf>why does megahal require tcl!
02:59<@mikegrb>because it isn't written in tcl?
03:00<warewolf>IT DIDN'T USED TO BE
03:00<warewolf>it's written in tcl AND PERL
03:00<warewolf>AND PYTHON
03:01<warewolf>oh no wait, it has -interfaces- for those languages.
03:01<warewolf>I See.
03:02<warewolf>nice, I had "net edition" (eg, irc bot edition) and now this v9.1.1 version doesn't support irc.
03:03<taupehat>it's updatedb:30
03:03<taupehat>churn churn goes my host
03:03<encode>i used to use megahal
03:04<encode>but then it started using about 70MB of ram
03:05<taupehat>I'm liking bmotion
03:05<taupehat>it's really really funny on gaming irecnets
03:05<warewolf>I was going to go in a caffiene run.
03:05<taupehat>half the people there can't string two words together coherently, so noboy notices when it gets weird
03:08<fo0bar>jeez, 2.6.16 already has a release candidate
03:09<warewolf>so waht
03:09<warewolf>er wait
03:10<warewolf>you're telling me that bmotion will do well in #zdoom here? *grin*
03:10<@linbot>warewolf: Error: "fart" is not a valid command.
03:11<encode>i wonder if linbot parses the input for commands
03:11<encode>anyone know some tcl?
03:13<warewolf>taupehat: is that a no? :P
03:13<taupehat>what is that chan
03:14<warewolf>taupehat: are you a bot?
03:14<taupehat>are you?
03:14<taupehat>well then
03:14<warewolf>taupehat: can you proove you are not a bot?
03:14<taupehat>what's the zdoom channel about?
03:14<@linbot>encode: Error: "eat-my-toes" is not a valid command.
03:14<warewolf>oh, zdoom is a channel here on OFTC that is a gaming channel
03:15<taupehat>I'll dupe the eggy then =]
03:15<warewolf>taupehat: how can you prove to me that you are not a bot
03:15<taupehat>I dunno, warewolf. Perhaps you can devise a turing-like test for me.
03:16<warewolf>how does that make you feel, taupehat?
03:16<taupehat>like kicking you in the shins!
03:16<warewolf>that's not very nice.
03:16<taupehat>but I get grumpy when it's late and I haven't taken my contacts out, etc
03:16<warewolf>have you considered what kicking you in the shins would do?
03:17[~]warewolf always loved that about Eliza
03:18<warewolf>improper use of you/me/my/I
03:18<warewolf>there was some BBS eliza clone that got dirty if you talked nasty to it
03:18<warewolf>one guy I knew put it up for sysop chat
03:18<warewolf>had a blast
03:19<warewolf>it was great because it would typo, then backspace, or change it's mind on what it was saying
03:19<warewolf>real time too you could see every "keystroke"
03:19<warewolf>sumbitch typed fast too
03:24<warewolf>my tradewars server at home is offline
03:24[~]warewolf tries magic packet waking it up
03:24<warewolf> hardware ethernet 00:07:95:DD:15:CB;
03:25[~]warewolf attempts to wake it
03:25<warewolf>I guess it doesn't default to allow WoL when you pwoer it off by the power button
03:26<taupehat>no joy eh
03:26<warewolf>yeah no joy.
03:26<warewolf>I'd kill to play tradewars with people I knew again
03:27<warewolf>I even *bought* it.
03:27<warewolf>badass gold edition too
03:28<taupehat>guess I'll have to turn this bot loose in there
03:28<warewolf>please do.
03:29<warewolf>skype prank logs:
03:29<taupehat>those were hilarious
03:29<taupehat>you could insert text in realtime
03:29<taupehat>I had to stop
03:29<taupehat>some of those dudes were sending pix
03:29<taupehat>of their thingies
03:30<taupehat>it was unappealing in the extreme

03:45[~]tronix not sure but assuming it's a now-broken part. *cough* ;)
03:46<taupehat>he's answering your question
03:50[~]tronix lubs my Thinkpad T42, too (re: convo from a hour ago)
03:50<tronix>bought it out of own pocket, not a work-given deal.
03:50<tronix>work got me a Dell D600 which is spec-wise, identical to T42
03:51<tronix>both are great laptops but I prefer the T42's three button mouse
03:51<tronix>hate the two button emulation with Linux (PITA)
03:51<tronix>tho the D600's case feels nicer on the wrist
03:51<tronix>that's pretty much the only real difference between two
03:51<tronix>similar pricing, options, specs, etc
03:52<tronix>d600 works out ok cause I run windows on it and linux on the T42
03:52<tronix>so two button mouse on d600 is no big deal.
03:53[~]taupehat prefers his iBook
03:53<tronix>i'd love a powerbook, but that iBook at compusa other day looked nice, too
03:53<tronix>$999 was a decent-looking price for the iBook
03:54<taupehat>I've got an iBook, am happy with it
03:54<taupehat>does all I'd expect from a laptop
03:54<tronix>only thing I didn't like with the iBook is that it seemed rather hot under the left side, where you rest your hand
03:54<taupehat>and I hate to say it, but for laptops, Expose really _is_ a killer app
03:54<@mikegrb>tronix: yes
03:54<@mikegrb>taupehat: then why do you hate to say it?
03:55[~]taupehat resists the fanboi way of speaking
03:55<@mikegrb>tronix: I have mine run with the processor in power saving mode even when plugged in to compensate
03:55<tronix>ahh makes sense
03:55<tronix>thought it was probably due to way cusa had it config'd
03:55<@mikegrb>when I go to play in photoshop or somesuch, I flip it back
03:56<tronix>with linux and cpufreqd on the T42, I have it run at 600 MHz mode even with AC power on, unless I'm running some cpu intensive job
03:56<tronix>(in which case, cpufreqd temporarily gives me a faster CPU as needed)
03:56<@mikegrb>dynamic cpu speed makes baby jesus happy
03:57[~]mikegrb started a code benchmark about 3 hours before going to bed around noon this morning
03:57<@mikegrb>it's still running
04:02<@mikegrb>mmm cake
04:02<taupehat>I just got a verified kill by way of Godwin's law.
04:02[~]taupehat paints a hash mark on the window sill
04:03<tronix>mmm Snoopy scoring method
04:03<tronix>notch in doghouse :-)
04:03<tronix>he soon discovered the main problem with being too successful...
04:03<tronix>structural integrity failure.
04:07<warewolf>I am one sexy bald ass hunk of meat

04:32<warewolf>perl 6 scares me.
04:32<warewolf>I'm not sure what to think of it.
04:51<encode>me neither
04:51<encode>it looks so different from perl5
04:52<encode>like learning a whole new language
04:53<warewolf>know what I enjoy?
04:53<encode>not really
04:54<warewolf>hold one while I manually type this from one machine to another
04:54<encode>but i have a feeling
04:54<encode>you'll enlighten us
04:55<warewolf>bwahaha this is even better than I thought
04:55<warewolf>this is almost good enough for thedailywtf
04:55<encode>hah i love that website
04:55|-|internat [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
04:55<warewolf>this will be good
04:55<warewolf>you'll enjoy this
04:56<warewolf>oh god
04:56<warewolf>this is going on thedailywtf when I am done.
04:56<warewolf>this is really bad code.
04:57<encode>are u actually writing this...really bad code?
04:57<warewolf>I'm reducing it to TWO LINES.
04:58<warewolf>I have to nopaste this
05:03<@mikegrb>$date=sprintf "%04d%02d%02d\n,$year,$mon,$mday;
05:03<@mikegrb>chomp $date;
05:04<@mikegrb>puts a \n on it and then takes it off
05:04<@mikegrb>also, you forgot the "
05:04<warewolf>yeah I'll fix
05:04<warewolf>sorry :)
05:04<warewolf>but damn
05:04<warewolf>and this coworker of mine who coded this up WENT TO A PERL COURSE BY DAMIAN CONWAY
05:04<warewolf>I mean CHRIST MOTHERFUCKER
05:05<warewolf>DO YOU SPEAK IT
05:05<@mikegrb>no, they don't
05:05<warewolf>this is when I want him to sheepishly say "... no?"
05:05[~]encode returns from the shower
05:06<encode>yes i saw
05:06<encode>i dont think thats as bad as at least some of thedailywtf's
05:06<@mikegrb>sure it is
05:06<warewolf>1) chomping off a \n you added
05:07<warewolf>2) not putting the periods inside the sprintf
05:07<@mikegrb>I mean it isn't in vb like most of the stuff, but otherwise it is on par
05:07<warewolf>3) using regexes to pull out the zero padded year, month, day from the date
05:07<encode>yeah i guess
05:07<warewolf>4) ignoreance of strftime
05:07<encode>chomping a \n u just added is really dumb
05:07<warewolf>#3 is the worst IMHO
05:07<encode>looks like a copy, paste, trial-and-error-modify job to me
05:08<@mikegrb>well the regex to pull out the y, m, d isn't quite as bad as doing it so that you could put .s in between after you just created the string with sprintf
05:08<warewolf>5) ignorance of 'use strict;'
05:08<warewolf>I keep bashing that into him
05:08<warewolf>and he refuses to do it
05:08<encode>i must admit, without seeing warewolf's code i wouldn't have known about strftime
05:08<warewolf>I'm going to revoke his coding privs if he continues
05:09<warewolf>encode: that's ok. Everybody learns one way or another.
05:09<@mikegrb>I was happing this morning, got to remove a dependency on a library that precluded the use of use strict from something
05:09<warewolf>encode: ever use date +%blah ?
05:09<encode>my coding style is always evolving
05:09<encode>warewolf: nope
05:09<warewolf>encode: and it will improve. Mine's improved over the past 6 years.
05:09<@mikegrb>encode: but you would have assumed something like that existed, right?
05:10<warewolf>Thanks! Your message has been sent.
05:10<@mikegrb>or, at the very least, would have had the sprintf actually create the string you wanted
05:10[~]warewolf waits
05:11[~]encode begins to feel ignorant - why are u adding %blah? %blah is a hash
05:11<@mikegrb>Subject: [SpamCop summary report]
05:11<@mikegrb>( No current data - all clear )
05:11<warewolf>encode: I mean the shell date command
05:11<warewolf>encode: run on the command line date +%G%m%d
05:11<warewolf>encode: notice something similar? :)
05:12<encode>yes, well sprintf isnt something i've used a great deal for complex formatting
05:12<warewolf>it's great
05:12<warewolf>you'll find a use for it
05:12<warewolf>print "Or you will be\n"
05:12<encode>i mean, i've used it in C
05:12<warewolf>print "continuing to do stuff\n"
05:12<warewolf>print "like this to print\n"
05:13<warewolf>print "multiple lines, like my\n"
05:13<warewolf>print "coworker does.\n"
05:13<@mikegrb>but in perl 6 he can use say and not have \n!

06:09<tronix>re: WinCE... heh, one of our tape libraries uses WinCE to control its color LED menu interface :)
06:09<tronix>(of course, I wasn't the one whom ordered or approved it.)
06:09<tronix>[I got better libs.]
06:11<encode>color LED or color LCD?
06:12<tronix>oh um
06:12<tronix>LCD, sorry :)
06:12<tronix>fingers has permanently memorized the keystrokes for 'LED', I'm afraid.
06:12<tronix>built-in macro ;)
06:13<Nemesis__>usually pre-fixed with 'Blue' ?
06:13<tronix>speaking of which, don't recall if I've seen it BSOD, but know we've had a number of problems with it
06:14<tronix>the library that I ordered has been a rock solid performer, other than the silly thing we did with too-long SCSI cables.
06:14<tronix>but now management is jonesing for disk-based backup solutions. go figure ;)
06:14<tronix>vendors are *drooling* because they want to line their pockets with new sales. :P
06:15<tronix>(a point that is, I'm afraid, lost on my boss' boss...)
06:15<encode>TSM ftw
06:15<encode>the best of both worlds
06:15<tronix>TSM as in tivoli?
06:15<encode>plus cool robotic arms
06:15<tronix>aye. that's what I run :)
06:16<tronix>tsm + LTO libs
06:16<tronix>good stuff
06:16<encode>we use tsm, brightstor, veritas, other random stuff
06:16<encode>tsm works the best
06:16<tronix>other team runs legato + ait-3. legato is ok..sort of..

11:02<warewolf>somebody was persistant
11:02<Dreamer3>what do you use for geylisting?
11:02<Dreamer3>that changes headers like that

11:03<Dreamer3>no, it's quite nice :-)

11:03<Dreamer3>i'm just about to setup a db setup to handle e-mail routing, domains, greylisting, all with a slick web UI that I design
11:04<Dreamer3>but that header is pretty cool
11:04<@mikegrb>apt-get install postgrey
11:04<Dreamer3>does it do headers?
11:05<Dreamer3>that would require it be a filter, not just a policy
11:05<@mikegrb>Dreamer3: the correct answer was "no, but yours does"

11:06<Dreamer3>i was in a nice mood though
11:06<Dreamer3>mikegrb: i don't think it filters, i think it' sjust a policy tha tpasses or not
11:06<Dreamer3>it's a policy server
11:06<@mikegrb>it adds a header
11:07<Dreamer3>policy servers can add headers?

11:07<@mikegrb>I don't use postfix
11:07<warewolf>he uses exim!
11:07<@mikegrb>but I know postgrey adds a header
11:07<warewolf>so anyway
11:07<warewolf>my sendmail doesn't suck because it does greylisting, sender-id, spf, and srs.
11:07<warewolf>come back when your MTA can do all those.

14:23<srid>I am desperate to buy a linode sometime this month. After I do so, will the upgrade to Xen (for my linode) be smoother?
14:23<warewolf>srid: last I checked, the migration process to move from a UML based Linode to a XEN based linode was already set.
14:23<kvandivo>clicking a button, from what we've been told

14:24<srid>btw, no Ubuntu breezy?
14:25<warewolf>ask caker and mikegrb if they can add it as a distro
14:25<warewolf>if they get enough requests, they might add it :) asking doesn't hurt.
14:26<srid>warewolf: or can I install stock Ubuntu (warty?) and upgrade without much hassles to breezy?
14:26<srid>I mean, apt-get dist-upgrade
14:27<warewolf>srid- I don't know much about Ubuntu, but I do know this channel has a lot of debian fans, so you're likely to find someone who can help.
14:27<kvandivo> seems to indicate that you can

14:29<srid>btw, I have a domain name (registered a month back) and my site is hosted in How easy is it to migrade to a linode?
14:30<kvandivo>who's doing dns?
14:31<kvandivo>if nfs is, you'd probably want to get a zoneedit account or something similar
14:31<kvandivo>other than that, the term migrate is a bit of a misnomer.. i mean, linode is going to be a complete linux install, so you'll have to set up your webserver, etc etc
14:32<srid>kvandivo: yes, I'm using NFS's basic dns
14:32<kvandivo>ya, zoneedit is the easiest way to go from there.. you can even run your own dns if you want, but for small installations, zoneedit is much easier
14:32<srid>the webserver part is fine, but I'm more worried about the domain name, and email forwarding, since I haven't done any thing like this before
14:34<srid>my domain is just a month old, is that a problem?
14:34<kvandivo>not hardly
14:34<kvandivo>i'd suspect a reasonably percentage of people getting a 'node have a domain that is mere hours old
14:35<srid>I heard that yahoo is charging $3 per domain. How do I change my existing domain to yahoo?
14:35<kvandivo>sounds like you already have the domain name. why mess with it? when it comes due in another 11 months (or 23 months.. whatever) worrya bout it
14:36<srid>for the next renewal,i mean
14:36<kvandivo>oh. yahoo should have instructions for you, then
14:38<srid>btw, I don't want to buy a linode for a year initially. If i want to pay for a month + setup, and then from second month, if I want to pay for the whole year, will the setup fee be refunded and will I get 50% extra storage?

14:40<Redgore>tucows resellers can be a PITA
14:41<kvandivo>srid: don't know about the setup fee, but you get the extra storage
14:44<Neurosis>srid: kvandivo said about letting domain expire then remaking with yahoo is valid but be careful about that.. i owned and i did that with godaddy and they held it for 30 days trying to auction it off for $5 and then when no one bought it and i didnt pay the $80 to get it out of 'redemption period' they didnt release it and then they sold it straight to one of those catch all search portals we all hate so much
14:44<kvandivo>who said anything about letting it expire?
14:44<Neurosis><kvandivo> sounds like you already have the domain name. why mess with it? when it comes due in another 11 months (or 23 months.. whatever) worrya bout it
14:44<Neurosis>i thought thats what u meant
14:44<kvandivo>i would never tell someone to let it expire.. i was just meaning to wait until it was due for renewall
14:44<Neurosis>instead of transferring
14:44<Neurosis>my bad
14:45<kvandivo>transfer.. but go ahead and use the money that you've invested in the current registrar
14:45<Neurosis>aww yes
14:45<srid>well, I feel like 80MB won't be enough, though $20/month is the budget for me
14:45<kvandivo>what services are you planning?
14:46<Neurosis>i love linodes.. i cant imagine hosting from anywhere else
14:46<Neurosis>so much control
14:46<srid>subversion, irc, apache/php, (rails like)
14:47<kvandivo>if email includes SA, you're hurting on an 80
14:47<kvandivo>SA is a hog
14:47<kvandivo>irc mean client, or server?
14:47<srid>I'll mostly be forwarding email
14:47<kvandivo>apache and lighttpd ?
14:47<srid>but what if server also?
14:48<ferik>isn't SA on a linode 80 fine if you're only serving one user ?
14:48<srid>yes, apace and a few instances of lighttpd
14:48<srid>behind apache vhosts
14:48<kvandivo>well, if you are going to be on a site that regularly uses all of those things (ie., they all need to be in ram all the time) 80 is pushing it
14:49<kvandivo>if they can be gracefully swapped out, you would be fine.
14:49<kvandivo>the devil in the details of a linode is that you really DON'T want to bite into swap for active processes
14:49<kvandivo>swap is fine for apps that aren't being used.. but you don't want to be using more active ram than you actually have
14:49<kvandivo>swap for actively running processes is a no-no, though
14:50<Neurosis>how come?
14:50<Neurosis>isnt that what its there for?
14:50<srid>another question? how much is the swap? is it part of disk space ?
14:50<kvandivo>because that chews through your io tokens like a woodchipper chews through a branch
14:50<kvandivo>swap comes out of disk space, yes
14:50<Neurosis>my swap is 256 mb and i believe yes it comes from ur total space
14:51<Neurosis><--stupid alert...
14:51<Neurosis>whats an io token
14:51<Neurosis>i;ve heard of it
14:51<Neurosis>dunno what it is
14:51<Neurosis>tank u
14:52<kvandivo>99% of the io token problems that people have are a direct result of hitting swap for active processes
14:53<Neurosis>-bash: io_status: command not found
14:53<kvandivo>no kidding
14:53<@caker>Milestone: Xen Public Beta - Completed 1 day ago - 100% completed - Closed tickets: 13 Active tickets: 0 :))
14:53<Neurosis>how do u keep a process from hitting swap?
14:53<kvandivo>Neurosis: tune it so that it fits in available ram
14:53<@caker>just waiting on cabinets/hardware now :)
14:53<Neurosis>ahh i c
14:54<kvandivo>speaking of xen, hopefully it will help a lot with the io token issue. initial results look promising, (i think caker would agree with me saying that)
14:55<kvandivo>the io token issue is surmountable.. (trust me on this one.. i know) it just requires getting your 'node tuned so that it stays in ram

15:46<ascott>but it sure isn't to the rest of the world.

15:48<ascott>not sure. IP, you mean?
15:49<anderiv>ascott: lish. right side.
15:49<[|^__^|]>ascott: for example, I used to be on host27
15:49<[|^__^|]>ascott: so I'd "ssh"
15:49<[|^__^|]>and get to the console that way
15:49<ascott>I"m on a dial-up wtih XP. :-P
15:50<[|^__^|]>so you might "ssh"
15:50<ascott>hang on, I need an ssh client. none here.

15:57<ascott>okay, but why is my node unreachable?
15:57<[|^__^|]>I don't know. Didn't you say it was?
