08:22<galexand>i have a billing problem (of my own making *sigh*), are any of the admins up?
08:23<@caker>about to head out -- what's the problem?
08:25<galexand>i got a yearly linode called 'stable'
08:25<galexand>but it was for work, and i handeda ll the passwords over to my coworker, but it wouldn't let me remove my credit card number, so i told him to
08:26<galexand>i'm sure he'd be happy to put his credit card number in now, buti don't want to pay for the next year first.
08:26<galexand>i just put in a gibberish cc# hoping that it hasn't been charged yet and will bounce and he will get a chance to try to deal with that
08:27<galexand>(it is up for renewal today)

09:12<pingu>Can anyone here tell me if there is something outstandingly hard/impossible about running a grsec kernel under UML?
09:32<iggy>I don't think grsec has been ported to uml (remember in the kernel it's considered a seperate arch)
09:41<pingu>Aah :\ Thanks.
09:41<pingu>So, it requires porting just like xen :\

17:40<fo0bar> <-- pwn3d
17:46<tsi>i like how linux on a cd went from being something that was just run of the mill and useful as a utility into the hottest trend among inexperienced new computer enthusiasts
17:46<warewolf>that's awesome
17:46<tsi>oh, wait, no. what's the opposite of like? hate. right. that's it. i hate it.
17:46<warewolf>I just crank called the girl/guy who lives in my house
17:48<warewolf>oh man
17:48<warewolf>I should crank call my office
17:48<warewolf>call pizza hut or someshit

17:50<fo0bar>Guest60226: I'm not a representative of linode, but I know the answer is no.
17:50<tsi>just paypal me $20 anytime you feel like it

17:52<[Doug]>They need. to. take. paypal!
17:52<@mikegrb>paypal isn't really useful for us
17:52<[Doug]>i`m 13.
17:52<@mikegrb>their terms, fees, restrictions on amount of money, etc
17:52<[Doug]>I don`t have a credit card.
17:53<[Doug]>Well, you should make it so only bank accounts can send money..
17:53<@mikegrb>then have one of your parents sign up
17:53<[Doug]>They have no clue I even am getting a VPS, or have paypal.
17:53<[Doug]>If you took paypal, even just as an exception I`d happily buy from you.
17:53<@mikegrb>anyway, at 13 we can't sell you a Linode anyway
17:53<[Doug]>you can't/
17:55<[Doug]>then im 15.
17:55<@mikegrb>doesn't work that way
17:56<[Doug]>i know.
17:56<[Doug]>what age you needa be
18:02<tsi>I certainly laud your effort to learn about computers
18:02<tsi>What are you trying to do?
18:02<tsi>Maybe there are other ways to accomplish it
18:02<[Doug]>i have a vps of my own now but its 20 euros a month for very little
18:02<[Doug]>stupid shitty USD
18:04|-|FireSlash [] has joined #linode
18:04<lucca>hm, I sure don't remember spending my childhood cussing about currency negotiations with hosting providers
18:05<tsi>I missed out on that phase, too, but that's only because setting up a BBS involved way more work than installing Apache and writing some PHP code
18:05<lucca>wwiv for the win!
18:05<lucca>well, wildcat was okay
18:05<warewolf>I actually have a tradewars server online RIGHT NOW! :)
18:06<tsi>oh man
18:06<tsi>sign me the hell up
18:06<warewolf>actually it's powered off, now that I look at the power light
18:06<warewolf>*boots winders peecee*
18:06<warewolf>right now due to my cablemodem intenet uscking
18:06<warewolf>you will get an Authentic BBS Experience
18:07[~]lucca cringes
18:07<lucca>I remember playing tradewars at 300baud with no color support. That kinda sucked
18:08<warewolf>have fun
18:09<warewolf>it's tradewars gold too
18:09<warewolf>4 games
18:09<lucca>conn refused....
18:09<warewolf>ok 1 sec
18:16<tsi>holy crap, 4 games to pick from
18:16[~]tsi ferret shock
18:16<warewolf>they're designed with varying levels of playing time
18:16<tsi>whoa. putty does NOT support ansi well
18:16<warewolf>eg, people who HAVE LIVES should play the 500 turn game (I think it's game A)
18:17<lucca>kinda bursty
18:17<lucca>it's cute
18:17<warewolf>if you were getting 25% packet loss you'd be burty too
18:17<lucca>but at this point I think i'd have more fun making a bot to play it
18:18<warewolf>please don't. :)
18:18<lucca>I won't
18:19<tsi>dang you don't show starbase in the info :(
18:19[~]tsi lazy
18:24|-|macdan [] has quit [Quit: Got Itch?]
18:29<warewolf>god damn
18:29<warewolf>fscking lag
18:29|-|Gerden [] has joined #linode
18:30<lucca>you can generally do irc with up to 90% packet loss
18:30<warewolf>yes, but it's over SSH, and I'm also trying to develop a website at the same time.
18:35<efudd>ok, who pulled out the bbs card
18:35[~]efudd has a valid WWIV registration, majorBBS registration and PCBoard registration upstairs...
18:36<efudd>among other things....
18:36<warewolf>I have lots of porn.
18:36<warewolf>does that count?
18:36<efudd>for shore.
18:46<warewolf>if you want things done right, you have to do them yourself.
18:46[~]warewolf writes his own CGI::Wiki::Formatter module for ratemylinode
18:46<warewolf>... tomorrow.
19:03|-|[Doug] changed nick to D[a]
19:31<taupehat>so like
19:31<taupehat>we all can thank lilo for that fscking lag
19:38<Spads>taupehat: do you mean Rob Levin?
19:39<taupehat>I do indeed
19:39<Spads>don't call him lilo
19:39<Spads>he is not the maintainer of lilo
19:39<taupehat>good point
19:39<taupehat>he should go as ##lilo
19:39<Spads>he tried forking it once, and failed
19:39<Spads>he should.
19:40[~]taupehat just made the suggestion in #freenode-social
19:41<Spads>how was it received?
19:41<taupehat>17:39 <+gloin> given the freenode naming conventions, perhaps lilo should call himself ##lilo just for consistency's sake =P
19:41<taupehat>17:40 <+nick125> haha
19:41<taupehat>17:40 <+gloin> although I think "mud" might be a better name for him right now
19:41<sonorous>I disagree, "twat" would be much better ;)
19:42<taupehat>perhaps I should turn my bMotion bot loose in there again
19:42<sonorous>bmotion rocks ;
19:42<taupehat>yeah it does
19:42<taupehat>last time I let one go in there it lasted two days
19:43<taupehat>geert twigged it, but now geert's been kicked from the channel along with numist and spb
