00:08<fo0bar>caker: oh, when I changed my account last month, I also forgot to mention I wanted to give up the 3 extra IPs I haven't used in years. ticket?
00:08<@caker>fo0bar: that would be best
00:09|-|FireSlash [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
00:13<@mikegrb>you can't give up ips, it is not allowed
00:13<fo0bar>whoever responds to that ticket: please forgive me for saying "currenting" instead of "currently" :)

00:15<fo0bar>^^^ hahaha
00:17<fo0bar>ironically, I did the exact same thing last week
00:17<npmr>that's ironic?
00:17<Spads>It is apt, but not ironic.
00:18<fo0bar>npmr: it's like RAIIIIIN
00:18<npmr>yeah that

01:15[~]caker wonders how to get Google to suggest "Linode" when it's misspelled
01:16<npmr>buy the adword?
01:16<@caker>Been using adwords since day 1
01:20<warewolf>google does spelling based on shit it indexes
01:20<warewolf>so apparently linode isn't quite indexed enough.
01:20<warewolf>rik, on irc here was trying to get a job as a perl coder
01:20<warewolf>he came to me, seeking assistance in fixing the google spell perl module
01:21<@caker>well, I mean "ratemenude" has 11,200 documents, whereas linode has 83,700 ... linodee has 3
01:21<warewolf>"The google spell module currently fails one of it's test checks. Make it pass."
01:21<warewolf>know what the fix was?
01:21<warewolf>google had indexed the perl module itself, and thought the misspelling in the perl module was spelled correctly.
01:22<warewolf>so I had rik change the text the perl module was trying to "spell check" to "amrican arilines"
01:22<warewolf>and now it works correctly again (the weight of "american airlines" is high enough that if google indexed the misspelling, the REAL american airlines text would overpower it)

01:52<fo0bar> <-- no suggestion :(
01:52<fo0bar>at least finnix doesn't suggest finux :)
01:53<@caker>finnixx -- Did you mean: finnix
01:54<@caker>linnode -- Did you mean: line
01:54<warewolf>yeah I like it how 'ratemylinode' comes back with ratemenude
01:55<fo0bar>Results 1 - 10 of about 83,800 for linode
01:55<@caker>if finnix can have a "Did you mean", Linode should... doesn't make any sense
01:55<fo0bar>Results 1 - 10 of about 161,000 for finnix
01:55<fo0bar>I WIN THE INTERNET
01:55<fo0bar>12 months ago, I think that number was somewhere around 1,000
01:55<warewolf>LINODE FOR TEH WIN
01:56<warewolf>caker- lemme bounce you a .gif in an email, tell me what you think
01:57<fo0bar>caker: linode is generally known as the #1 VPS provider. is there a clear #2 you know of?
01:57<fo0bar>I know of many smaller VPSes, but I don't know how popular they are
01:57<warewolf>caker- mail sent
01:58<@caker>warewolf: neat -- I like it
01:59<warewolf>caker- compare to
01:59<warewolf>caker- he seems to be bent on this top-right navigation thing
02:09<TheFirst>for a #1 vps (which i agree with) you never came up when i started searching around
02:09<TheFirst>got stuck with a shithole vps prior to this and only found this by chance
02:09<@caker>TheFirst: how were you searching?
02:10<TheFirst>started with google, that found me hosthideout...think i saw etecc or whatever they were on there and went with them after i couldnt find anything cheaper...was several weeks of googling and reading various forums
02:10<TheFirst>wasn't until i got pissed and left etecc or whatever it was and found webhostingtalk that i saw linode reviews
02:11<@caker>we're top 10-20 in google for various search terms .. vps, virtual server, etc
02:11<@caker>also, adwords
02:11<TheFirst>i probably wasn't searching for that...i was a 'server newb' so to speak...knew the os but never done datacenter hosting or anything
02:11<TheFirst>had 2 bad experiences before i found this place actually ... sh3lls and etecc
02:13<TheFirst>now i'm here and for the most part satisfied ... and i'll leave it at that since i never bite the hand that feeds ;)
02:13<@caker>man, I can't believe how much has been ripped off from my competitors
02:14<TheFirst>what you mean?
02:14<TheFirst>etecc is nothing like you guys...
02:14<TheFirst>they're support is laughable
02:14<TheFirst>they have no control panel
02:14<@caker>etc, etc
02:15<TheFirst>when i was with them they oversold and got their servers cutoff ... down for days then when they moved it was to some temp place or so they said so they refused to setup rdns ... that was my last straw
02:15<TheFirst>just got that something shady is going on here feeling with them
02:20<warewolf>caker- something just hit me; do you have some cidr netblocks that include all the address space for Linodes?
02:20<warewolf>caker- these changes I'm going to make to support xen (and more graphs and stuff) are nolonger linode specific.
02:21<warewolf>caker- I'd prefer that I keep the service linode-only, and don't become "hey, monitor your joe-random-server here".
02:21<TheFirst>cant you restrict to linode's ip blocks?
02:21<warewolf>that's what I mean
02:21<warewolf>I'm asking the horse :)
02:22<TheFirst>ah i is the wee morning hours
02:22<warewolf>no problem :)
02:23<TheFirst>or maybe you could require a uname -r and grep that for linode?
02:23<warewolf>that can be faked
02:23<TheFirst>guess ip is the onlything that couldnt be
02:25<TheFirst>but then they'd have to know what to fake it wouldn't necc. be easy to fake
02:25<warewolf>I can check the source IP of the web request coming in submitting data
02:25<warewolf>that's easy
02:26<fo0bar>warewolf: I believe all netblocks are at least /24s and have gateways at .1. You could do a reverse->forward->reverse check and make sure the IP's .1 is *
02:27<fo0bar>but I could be wrong, or that could change in the future
02:27<TheFirst>about the best option i'd think though
02:27<warewolf>fo0bar: it'd be easier to get a netblock list from caker :) That way I can build a static Net::CIDR::Lite object and just say if($linode_cidrmask->contains("")) { ok }
02:28<warewolf>Net::CIDR::Lite is spiffy keen
02:28<TheFirst>warewolf: or close off at the firewall to anything except those blocks...
02:28<warewolf>you build the object, then add cidr blocks to it
02:28<warewolf>TheFirst: I can't firewall off stuff, I run too many different and unrelated websites on my linode
02:29<TheFirst>run the client/server on a diff port?
02:29<TheFirst>oh n/'re using a webpage setup for that...
02:30<TheFirst>gotta make it all difficult like
02:30<TheFirst>then again you could just make the client talk on a subdomain...have that subdomain on a diff port and firewall
02:30<TheFirst>but more work than what you propose
02:33<TheFirst>you should make a c version of the us poor saps with no ram dont gotta load up the perl interpreter and stuff ;)
02:34<warewolf>I honestly don't think that perl takes up that much memory.
02:35<TheFirst>it was enough to be real sluggish on my node...havent tried on the xen part though...prolly wouldnt be so bad
02:35<TheFirst>stupid apache and mysql hogs :(
02:35<warewolf>what? no. That's not your linode, it's mine :)
02:35<TheFirst>no it's mine...
02:35<warewolf>all the linodes checking in at once basically DDoS my linode
02:35<TheFirst>i had/have like 1meg ram free
02:37<TheFirst>maybe you could reverse the process? have the node run a daemon and your request info from it? then you could schedule so as to not ddos yourself
02:57<@caker>warewolf: yeah, I'll email them
02:57<warewolf>caker- awesome
03:07<encode>hooray for rml!
03:11<@mikegrb> suckage
03:12<fo0bar>mikegrb: I'll reboot tomorrow morning. thanks.
03:12<TheFirst>mikegrb: ewww don't present me with such disturbing i wont be able to sleep!
03:12<@mikegrb>sure thing

03:41<PenguinOfDoom>Hm. I'm seeing a bizarre packet size problem. I'm doing a 1000-byte traceroute from hosts A and B to my linode host L.
03:41<PenguinOfDoom>A's trace stops at L's next hop router (the router is included). B's goes through just fine.
03:42<PenguinOfDoom>What could possibly cause this?
03:45<PenguinOfDoom>argh. traceroute works. _mtr_ fails.

14:04<@mikegrb>Changes from version 4.2.1 Rev B: Fixed file and folders permission issue which could impair iSync functionality when installing Palm Desktop without administrator rights. If you encountered this issue, install this version (Rev D) to fix it.
14:04<gpd>mikegrb: it seems to be working! One of the 10.4.x updates must have fixed iSync :)
14:05<@mikegrb>looks like it was palm that was broken but perhaps apple added a work around in a newer isync
14:06<gpd>well - thanks for the encouragement
14:07<@mikegrb>no problem

16:34<@mikegrb>I think ps aux just sorts by pid
16:34<@mikegrb>which is typically by age but you do need to be aware of wrapping

16:54<@caker>cool .. looks like Xen-3.0.2 final will be released in the next few days
16:55<@caker>I'd say we're ready to roll Xen into production, but we'll give it some more time
16:56<kvandivo>i'd wait for version 5.0.3
16:56<kvandivo>better safe than sorry

16:57<lucca>caker: will xen-production have similar plans to what we had on the uml side?
16:57<@caker>lucca: no, we're planning resource increases across the board
17:00<tierra>ugh... now I'm going to get all impatient with the public beta with that knowledge
17:02<kvandivo>did someone say public beta? does that mean i don't need a linode account?

17:08<taupehat>thankfully, the fan and server is fine, but it was hungry!

19:06<Spads>it was a madhouse
19:06<efudd>that's the "reason for the talk" I guess.
19:06<efudd>or something.
19:07<gpd>anybody listened to Ricky Gervais Podcast?
19:09<gpd>Karl Pilkington would have trouble with that 1752 thing :)

20:51<gpd>is there a way to get around the lish screen within screen caper?
20:52<@mikegrb>what do you mean?
20:52<gpd>In LISH I did screen irssi... now when I detach - it detaches the lish screen not the irssi one...
20:53<gpd>I can just quit - but I imagine there is a simple solution
20:53<@mikegrb>^a then normal a then d
20:54<gpd>yeah - that gets me back to the lish page... but when you press return you go back to the irssi...
20:54<gpd>normally it won't let you start a screen session within a screen
20:54<gpd>so this might be a little odd
20:54<@mikegrb>"^a a" sends a literal ^a to what ever is inside the session, in this case the inside screen session
20:55<@mikegrb>I use screen within screen all the time with no problems
20:55<gpd>oh... got it... (doh)
20:58<SupaZubon>superbeef: by the way, that's a kickass username you got there
20:58<superbeef>SupaZubon Thanks chief... ground beef with a cape gets you places

22:47<@caker>post on the forums
22:47<valen2>Zombies happened.

22:48<taupehat_>worth reading
22:48<valen2>In a nutshell... CONFIG_DETECT_SOFTLOCKUP went nuts... Started causing zombie node problems.
22:48<taupehat_>zombie nodes???
22:48<taupehat_>that sounds bad
22:48<@caker>CONFIG_DETECT_SOFTLOCKUP can bite me
22:49<taupehat_>I'm not on host 27 though...
22:49<@caker>taupehat_: the xen forum
22:49<efudd>oh. hah. it tries to detect software lockups and doesn't watchdog them?!?
22:49<valen2>Basically DoSed the system from what I understand.
22:50<taupehat_>got it
22:50<taupehat_>I haven't seen the "graceful shutdown"
22:50<taupehat_> it's still showing as running
22:50<taupehat_>but the host load
22:51<taupehat_>the text attached to that graph needs refactoring imho
22:51<taupehat_>it shows almost no blank space and says "medium"
22:51<taupehat_>maybe when it's 2/3 of the way through the red part it could say "extra medium"
22:51<valen2>It hit high earlier.
22:51<efudd>I always wondered what the definition of "medium" was.
22:51<taupehat_>it's extra medium now
22:51<valen2>Or perhaps "medium well"
22:52<efudd>I expect you are right it just goes to "Extra medium" and that means 99.99999999% busy on user, sys, and io!
22:52<valen2>Have it use the burger scale... "Extra Rare, Rare, Medium Rare, Medium, Medium Well, Well Done"
22:54<taupehat_>when it hits high, it just echoes line 650 from /usr/src/linux-2.6.14/drivers/net/eexpress.c
22:54<efudd>now, I don't have that handy....
