00:43<taupehat>I suppose you could use it as a verb, but that'd be stretching things semantically
01:18<taupehat>homepage-pimping time
01:31<warewolf>you're the man now safe for work?
01:31[~]warewolf hates
01:37<taupehat>holy wow
01:38<taupehat>sometimes I think IRC has a lot fo spam
01:38<taupehat>I just joined yahoo chat to check out what gaim can't and can do
01:38<taupehat>holy wow
01:38<taupehat>it's pretty much _all_ spambot
01:38<warewolf>I'm confused
01:38<warewolf>you joined some kind of chat channel on yahoo messenger?
01:38<taupehat>there are zillions
01:39<taupehat>apparently, the whorebots know this as well
01:39<taupehat>I mean
01:39<taupehat>it's horrible
01:39<warewolf>taupehat: can I tell you something?
01:39<taupehat>warewolf: you're gonna anyhow
01:39<warewolf>taupehat: you're a blithering idiot.
01:39<warewolf>taupehat: 8-)
01:39<taupehat>thanks, really
01:40<taupehat>kind of puts the topper to my day
01:40<taupehat>like for what reason would you say that?
01:41<warewolf>joining a yahoo (or aol for the matter) chat channel is about as smart as using your tongue to check if the mains in your house are still on.
01:41<warewolf>I mean
01:41<warewolf>I hope you signed up on yahoo for fun

13:32[~]warewolf plug plug plug
13:32<taupehat>warewolf: did you catch my entry last night?
13:33[~]taupehat gets link
13:33<warewolf>I'm seeing more frequent errors lately, if that's what yo umean
13:34<warewolf>flashplayer is not "free" ?
13:34<warewolf>how so?
13:34<taupehat>and since when is IE6 free?
13:34<warewolf>it's not FL/OSS, no
13:35<warewolf>but IE6 is free
13:35<warewolf>man, some people.
13:35<warewolf>14:32 < warewolf> behold, the power of mod_perl.
13:35<warewolf>14:32 < tcccp> hrhr
13:35<warewolf>14:32 < tcccp> F*ck mod_perl
13:35<warewolf>14:32 < tcccp> PHP - Programming with attitude
13:35<warewolf>14:32 < warewolf> ... ok, right.
13:36<warewolf>he also did this "hrhr" thing twice.
13:36[~]warewolf -c sleep &
13:37<npmr>"free" as it is typically used in passing is shorthand for "free of charge"
13:38<npmr>i make an effort to actually say "free of charge" instead of just "free"
13:38<taupehat>but "free software" is a pretty specific term
13:38<npmr>no it isn't
13:39<npmr>witness the confusion
13:41<Redgore>freedom software would be a better term
13:41[~]taupehat needs to get back to work
13:48|-|Newsome [] has joined #linode
13:51<npmr>freedom software sounds very bleeding heart conservative to me
13:54|-|jekil [~alessandr@] has joined #linode
14:09<Beirdo>conservative isn't usually associated with bleeding heart :)
14:09<kvandivo>maybe he meant 'middle of the road'
14:09<npmr>no, i meant bleeding heart conservative
14:10<npmr>like freedom fries and deficit spending
14:11<kvandivo>bleeding heart: A person who is considered excessively sympathetic toward those who claim to be underprivileged or exploited... .. i'm not seeing the connection
14:23<Beirdo>I'm not getting started on freedom fries, but yeah, it strikes me as a similar feeling calling it freedom software
14:24<taupehat>someone sent me a recipe for freedom onion soup a year or so back
14:24<Beirdo>and I bet they freedom kiss their S.O. too

20:46<sprouse>can't seem to get it work with debian3.1 putty for win32
20:46<taupehat>sprouse: did you check the putty config
20:46<taupehat>make sure it's ssh2 only
20:47<sprouse>putty Preferred SSH protocol verion 2 is radio box is set
20:47<taupehat>not preferred
20:48<sprouse>there is a "2 only" radio button
20:48|-|Chang [] has quit [Quit: Chang]
20:48<taupehat>yes, that
20:50<sprouse>no go. let me check my logs to see whats up.
20:52<taupehat>do you have access to a real unix box to work with?
20:53<sprouse>interesting after scrolling past the pages of brutforce attacks in the logs it didn't tell me much
20:53<taupehat>sprouse: apt-get install fail2ban
20:53<sprouse>no i don't.
20:57<sprouse>thanks. I was reading that in the latest forum post that prompted me to look at my logs and hence attempt to setup ssh pub key auth
20:58<sprouse>gotta find my howto on apt pinning before I can grab fail2ban from unstable
20:59<taupehat>eh, I've got it on my unstable box
20:59<taupehat>it works well =]
21:00<sprouse>after I'm done a particular project I'll apt-get upgrade to unstable but can't right now
21:00<taupehat>oh aye
21:06<sprouse>taupehat: thanks for the time. I'm callin it a night, have a good one
21:07<taupehat>gn, gl
21:15<FireSlash>anyone know if theres a way to have analog look at archived logs (.gz)?
21:18<FireSlash>nm, log file format was wrong :B
21:37<tronix>heh I decided to go with the flow... saw patterns of three-digit non-alphanumerics :-)
21:38[~]tronix shamed back into submission and goes back to watching The Propaganda Machine
