05:46<vaxen>hi there
05:46<vaxen>is linode under ddos?
05:46<@mikegrb>not aware of any but will tale a look
05:46<vaxen>host55 is crawling
05:47<@mikegrb>peak in last 2 hours is only 5.5 Mbps
05:47[~]mikegrb takes a look at 55
05:51<@mikegrb>vaxen: any better?
05:52<@mikegrb>host's load avg is now 1/2 of what it was
05:52<vaxen>ya
05:52<vaxen>a lil better
05:52<vaxen>thanks mike
05:52<@mikegrb>load average: 5.95, 10.87, 15.89
05:53<vaxen>what was wrong with it?
05:53<@mikegrb>still a touch high
05:53<@mikegrb>two swap thrashers
05:53<@mikegrb>they were double teaming you
05:53<vaxen>hehe
05:54<@mikegrb>it's still falling
05:54<vaxen>i can't update mysql while its running?
05:54<@mikegrb>4.33, 9.25, 14.86
05:54<vaxen>me using etch
05:54<@mikegrb>you can update the files but then it will have to be restarted
05:55<@mikegrb>apt should handle that automatically
05:57<vaxen>The following packages have been kept back: mysql-server
05:57<vaxen>doesnt wanna upgrade
05:57<@mikegrb>dist-upgrade
05:58<vaxen>thats what i did
05:59<@mikegrb>likely it depends on another package/newer version of another package that hasn't made it to etch yet
06:00<vaxen>alrite
06:01<@mikegrb>packages move from sid to etch automatially after so many days without bugs
06:01<@mikegrb>I think it's like 7 or 14 or so

10:16<Spads>good old tony
10:22[~]npmr wonders whether a conviction of moussaoui would create a precedent that might one day be used against the administration
10:24<Spads>wasn't he already convicted?
10:25<Spads>He's just waiting for sentencing, according to emad
10:25<npmr>oh, ok
10:25<npmr>well i'm just looking at this quote by the prosecutor
10:25<npmr>"He lied so the plot could proceed unimpeded," Robert Spencer said in his opening statement. "He lied, and 3,000 people died."
10:26<npmr>forty years from now, one might look at that quote out of context and wonder wheter "he" refers to moussaoui or bush
10:26<Spads>haha well, it's an opening statement and not a legal argument
10:26<npmr>by then i suspect people would have forgotten moussaoui's name
10:29|-|nikki [~nikki@dynamic-62-56-49-226.park-s46b.dslaccess.co.uk] has joined #linode
10:29<nikki>I'm still having trouble...
10:29<Spads>you should ping mikegrb and caker
10:30<nikki>I finally found out: my credit card has £44 available
10:31<Spads>ouch
10:31<Spads>so maybe if you pay down the balance that'll work out
10:31<nikki>huh?
10:32<nikki>sigh... lagged to death
10:33<nikki>xe.com says $19.95 is £11.49
10:33<nikki>so I'm not reaching my limit, unless it's still attempting to charge me for the entire year
10:33<heidi>then there is something else wrong with the card
10:33<nikki>nope
10:33<nikki>I checked
10:33<nikki>they said it's all fine
10:34<heidi>do you have your plan set on yearly
10:34<nikki>it used to be yearly
10:34<nikki>but I asked for it to be changed to monthly
10:34<Spads>ahhh
10:35<nikki>and it was, apparently
10:35<nikki>the extra space is certainly gone ;)
10:41<heidi>nikki: ok, when you log in to your account via website, it will say balance $19.95, there is a button next to it that should say charge my account
10:41<heidi>try doing that
10:42<heidi>then if it is still declined, open a brief ticket explaining the problem, this way when caker goes through and disables accounts for non-payment, he will see that you are trying to resolve it, then he won't disable the account right now
10:42<heidi>this is per mikegrb
10:42<heidi>(I am the wife)
10:42<kvandivo>that's the wife to you
10:46<Spads>haha
10:46<heidi>oh it should say pay my balance
10:54<nikki>heidi: I've tried that about 10 times over the last few days
10:54<nikki>heidi: every time I get The transaction failed. ErrorMessage: failure-bad-money ; ccsp ; Financial Institution Response: Declined.
10:55<Spads>could it be fraud protection on behalf of your card? Like, maybe they're skeptical that it's really you buying services from some funny overseas company
10:56<nikki>they tend to ring me when that happens
10:56<Spads>on a textphone?
10:56<nikki>they usually leave undecipherable messages on my mobile which I get other people to decipher for me :)
10:57<Spads>SMS?
10:57<nikki>nope
10:57<nikki>answer phone messages
11:14<tierra>yeah, my bank will call me sometimes on stuff like that...
11:15<npmr>likewise
11:15<npmr>hmmm
11:16<npmr>i wonder if i should call and let them know i'll be in germany next week
11:16<Spads>ze cherrrmany
11:17<Spads>npmr: usually they figure it out if you bought a plane ticket
11:17<npmr>i'm going to visit riffe castle
11:17<npmr>good point

12:34<ericdes>Is there someone there on host38 that has been disconnected?
12:35<kvandivo>elaborate
12:36<ericdes>I've been throttled because several other customers have complained about my linode eating up all the resources...
12:37<kvandivo>not being a good netizen, huh?
12:37<Spads>linodizen
12:37<Spads>hostizen
12:37<bendy24>startkeylogger
12:37<Spads>stopkeylogger!!!!

12:37<ericdes>Supposely other linodes on host 38 have been unresponsive.... I'm not sure what I've been doing wrong....
12:37<bendy24>Spads: you made Eman join!
12:38<bendy24>omg it works
12:38<npmr>so that's like some +++ATH thing?
12:38<Spads>bendy24: stopkeylogger works just the same as startkeylogger
12:38<Spads>npmr: on slashnet I joined #startkeylogger, and so when mIRC does a /list on connect it boots you off
12:38<bendy24>Spads: was joking... sheesh
12:38<Spads>it's hilarious
12:38<Eman>DCC SEND "string" 0 0 0
12:38<Eman>:D
12:39<Spads>most irc nets filter out the startkeylogger stuff
12:39<Spads>won't let you say the word
12:39<Spads>I changed my nick to it and said hello in #slashdot and four people disconnected
12:39<npmr>ok, but what the hell does it do?
12:39<Spads>basically norton personal magic pixie talisman firewall wotzit thinks you're hacked and talking to a spybot
12:40<npmr>hahahaha
12:40<Spads>so it says "THIS IRC CLIENT IS THE DEVIL! I BANISH THEE!"
12:40<npmr>is that a blanket thing or only for irc connections?
12:40<Spads>only irc
12:40<Spads>or rather, on the official irc ports
12:40<npmr>hmmm
12:40<Spads>6666-6670 or whatever
12:40<npmr>so if i wrote an irc client in javurscript....
12:41<Spads>yeah, the cgi.irc wotzit that some folks use here also gets hit by it
12:41<Spads>norton shuts off the interweb
12:41<npmr>awesome
12:41<bendy24>norton++
12:41<npmr>it's the new new joinkicker
12:41<Spads>it's the new "begin "
12:42<Spads>or the new saveuserprefs(/win32kernel)
12:42<Spads>or whatever that was
12:42<Spads>save bookmarks
12:42<npmr>yeah
12:42<npmr>what else does norton watch for?
12:42<Spads>dunno
12:43<Spads>presumably many things
12:43<Spads>we need only tickle its hastily-written filter rules to punch innocents in the face
12:43<Spads>if only we could somehow take their candy at the same time...
12:43<npmr>phishing?
12:44<Spads>phishing for candy!
12:44<npmr>i wonder if norton tries to detect phishing lures
12:44<Eman>http://alderaan.r-type.ca/erik/router.htm
12:44<npmr>if it did i bet it would just redirect to some norton.com page, anyway
12:45<Spads>I APOLOGIZE FOR THIS ABRUPT COMMUNICATION. I AM ONE LUMPOS AKLOS, FORMER OOMPA-LOOMPA OF WONKA CHOCOLATE CONFECTIONARY INDUSTRIES, LTD. I LEFT THE EMPLOY OF WONKA AND ASSOCIATES UNDER MYSTERIOUS CIRCUMSTANCES, BUT KEPT WITH ME THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE LOCATION OF SEVERAL GOLDEN TICKETS.
