01:09<@caker>ares6: hello
01:09<ares6>hi
01:10<SupaZubon>I am teh London!
01:10<ares6>I want to cry :(
01:10<ares6>I cant use "su" :(
01:10<ares6>I have no root access now
01:11<@caker>ares6: init=/bin/bash to the rescue (in your config profile settings)
01:11<@caker>SupaZubon: wow, really?
01:11<SupaZubon>yeah
01:11<ares6>well... su still doesnt work after changing password
01:11<SupaZubon>just arrived last night
01:11<SupaZubon>it's 7am here
01:11<SupaZubon>long painful flight, but we're here to look for apartments
01:12<ares6>I cant even do a "su ares" from my ares user
01:12<warewolf>ares6- maybe you should reboot, and add init=/bin/bash to your config in your profile.

01:15<ares>yeah.. but I cant get it to work again
01:16<erikh>I tried hacking this in screenrc about 9 months ago and couldn't find anything about this.
01:20<ares>oh, I think it's some permission problems
01:20<ares>wrong permission on some files
01:27<ares>ok, quick question.. how do you force a reinstall using apt?

04:58<warewolf>windows networking file-sharing across the intaweb.
04:58<warewolf>sloooooooooooooooooooooowwwwwwwwwww
04:59<efudd>CIFS is very chatty in M$ implementations.
05:08[~]warewolf figures out how to remove internet explorer from windows xp before install

06:15<warewolf>there we go.
06:16<warewolf>no IE, no "IE Core", FireFox, Thunderbird, VNC, WinZip, Spybot S&D, AdAware Personal, Symantec Antivirus, GAIM, DirectX 9.0c, all the hotfixes up to this month
06:16<warewolf>I think this custom packaged windows XP will be quite good.
06:29<efudd>sounds like too much work.
06:29<efudd>is this "no ie core" thingy documented?
06:32<warewolf>Yep.
06:32<warewolf>and god was this ever simple as hell
06:33<warewolf>documented as in you check a checkbox that == REMOVE THIS

06:33<efudd>er....
06:33[~]efudd doesn't remember that option.
06:33<efudd>ohwell
06:33<warewolf>riight. This would be in this application I used called nLite
06:34<warewolf>http://www.nliteos.com.
06:34<warewolf>it customises the winxp install
06:37<encode>warewolf: wouldnt it be easier to use a ubuntu cd?
06:38<warewolf>no.
06:38<warewolf>why?
06:38<warewolf>because ubuntu (or any other linux) doesn't play windows games 100% accurately
06:38<encode>true
06:38<warewolf>no matter how much cedega tries to do it right
06:38<warewolf>it's still a game of catch-up.
06:38<warewolf>hopefully, this streamlined XP w/o IE and other JUNK will be super stable
06:39<encode>i doubt it
06:39<encode>im pretty sure IE is part of the windows api
06:39<warewolf>and I'm pretty sure you're wrong.
06:39<encode>in which case its going to cause some issues if theres bits missing
06:39<encode>well i could be totally wrong
06:39<encode>its not something i've researched
06:39<encode>to any great extent
06:39<warewolf>IE's not "part of the windows API", it's just heavily used
06:40<encode>ok
06:40<warewolf>it's used in the windows xp (non-corp edition) activation
06:40<warewolf>it's used in some video games for HTML rendering (think Steam)
06:40<encode>is it used in windows update?
06:40<warewolf>yep that too
06:40<warewolf>but
06:40<warewolf>you don't need IE for automatic updates
06:40<encode>true
06:41<warewolf>there's a freebie open source windows update too
06:41<encode>ok
06:41<warewolf>http://windowsupdate.62nds.com/
06:41<encode>well, let us know how it goes
06:41<warewolf>will do :)
06:43<encode>but then you're installing symantec, which is massive bloatware
06:43[~]encode prefers mcafee viruscan enterprise
06:44<warewolf>it's a corp edition
06:44<warewolf>auto updates
06:44<encode>still bloated imo
06:47<warewolf>I gotta see if I can change the clsid of the "mozilla control" so that apps that try to embed IE will instead embed firefox

11:33<dggoldst>anybody here running a mail server?
11:36<dggoldst>that many, eh?
11:36<gpd>your question is scary and promotes lurk response
11:37<gpd>it implies that you don't and that you want someone to help you change this fact ;)
11:38<gpd>i run courier,postfix on my linode
11:39<dggoldst>ha
11:39<dggoldst>not to your running those
11:39<dggoldst>to the lurk response
11:41<dggoldst>so you have it set up so mail sent to you@yourdomain.com goes to your mail server?
11:41<gpd>correct
11:42<dggoldst>(this correct / incorrect model is good). so you just had to put an MX entry at your DNS saying that your mailserver is mail.yourdomain.com
11:43<gpd>hmm - not sure you need mail. but yes
11:44<jhmartin>[21~/quit
11:44<dggoldst>right now, mail sent to me@mydomain.com is handled by a private ISP, but I want to ditch them b/c I have a linode now. But I'm afraid to set up a mail server. Wi
11:44|-|jhmartin [jhmartin@mal.toger.us] has quit [Quit: ircII EPIC4-2.2 -- Are we there yet?]
11:44<dggoldst>ll probably get hacked or broken. My ultimate goal is to get off the ISP and have mail sent to me@mydomain.com to go to, say, gmail.
11:45<gpd>unless you have a particular reason for doing it... it is alot of effort
11:45<gpd>you can forward to gmail at your domain registrar
11:45<dggoldst>If you pay them, right?
11:45<gpd>no - should come with domain registration
11:46<dggoldst>hmmmm
11:46<gpd>godaddy etc allows free redirect
11:47<dggoldst>let's see. the registrar asks for your DNS server. The DNS server tells it where the mail server is. The mail server could then forward to gmail. But the registrar doesn't provide a mail server. Only the ISP does.
11:48<dggoldst>Right?
11:50<gpd>yes, once you remove dns to your isp the domain registar can't foward anymore
11:51<gpd>setting up mail to forward should be simple enough
11:52<gpd>if you install postfix in debian you can just put .forward in each unix account
11:52<dggoldst>right!
11:52<dggoldst>and you just need to tell the DNS to use your linode as the mail server
11:52<gpd>yeah
11:53<gpd>that implies you have multiple servers - mine is all on my linode
11:53<gpd>you said mail.mylinode... but that would be the same IP as www.mylinode
11:56<dggoldst>I have a non-linode private ISP that's handling my mail now. My site is hosted there, too. I have other sites on linode.
11:57<afv-13>propper handling or it's actually dggoldst@hisISP.wtf?
11:59<dggoldst>no, it's dggoldst@dggoldst.com sort of thing
11:59<afv-13>cause whiles i'm moving over to my gmail account, i've got a croned fetchmail (daemon uses too much ram) that then forwards the mail to gmail
11:59<afv-13>with exim
12:00<gpd>I find gmail slightly disturbing
12:00<dggoldst>So you are running your own mail transfer agent, exim.
12:00<afv-13>yup
12:01|-|Redgore [~Redgore@65.19.178.250] has joined #linode
12:01<afv-13>exim is the lazy mans MTA
12:01<dggoldst>Does it eat bandwidth everytime it forwards to gmail?
12:01<afv-13>well it's double a single mails b/w
12:01<afv-13>first pull then forward
12:01<dggoldst>yeah, i hear ya.
12:02<dggoldst>i see that exim comes out of cambridge, here in the UK, that's nice.
12:02<afv-13>but in my case as the migration goes further, the b/w used gets less and less
12:02<dggoldst>so it's safer/easier than running a full-on mail server.
12:03<afv-13>althougg for me it's actually 3x the b/w since i use squid when checking gmail cause i don't trust the people at work
12:03<dggoldst>:)
12:03<dggoldst>when you say "as the migration goes further" you mean you are now giving out a afv-13@gmail.com addy?
12:04<afv-13>me -> ssh tunnel -> squid -> gmail
12:04<afv-13>yes
12:04<dggoldst>why not just go afv-13@afv-13.com that way people will know it's good for lifetime use
12:04<afv-13>although that is not my email addy and since this is a public # that is logged, please no more email addresses
12:05<dggoldst>gotcha
12:05<afv-13>cause that sounds lame
12:05<afv-13>it would have to be me@mydns.wtf
12:05<afv-13>and that's worse
12:06<dggoldst>huh? just register the domain, point the DNS to your exim, forward the emails to gmail. that's what i'm looking to do.
12:07<dggoldst>gmails a pretty good external disk drive and will be 3GB soon
12:07<afv-13>k, i own afv-13:za:net|sed s,":",".",
12:07<dggoldst>awk, it's sed
12:07<afv-13>that would end up being afv-13@ what is above
12:08<afv-13>i really don't like me@me.com's
12:08<dggoldst>i guess you are a modest one
12:10<dggoldst>so, how long would it take a n00b (to MTAs) to setup exim, and will it lead to my indavertently sending nigerian spam worldwide?
12:10<afv-13>exim on debian will take you 2 minutes
12:10<dggoldst>i do have 2 minutes
12:10<afv-13>that's if you read slowly
12:10<afv-13>:p
12:11<dggoldst>and then what you gotta do at the DNS, add an MX line?
12:12<afv-13>yes
12:12<dggoldst>you just give it the IP of your linode?
12:12<afv-13>if i could remember who manages my dns i'd show you
12:12<afv-13>yes
12:12<dggoldst>that's crazy easy
12:13<dggoldst>absolutely terrifying, but easy sounding
12:13<dggoldst>i use everydns b/c it's $0.00
12:13<afv-13>thanks, "easy" reminded me
12:13<afv-13>everydns ftw
12:14<gpd>not when you have >5 domains :(
12:14<afv-13>register for anoter account and i'm sure their limit is 25
12:14<dggoldst>i've got 20 when i joined
12:14<dggoldst>"joined"
12:14<afv-13>oh, 20
12:14<gpd>bah - i just do it all myself with bind9
12:15<dggoldst>yeah, well i am writing one in assembler
12:15<afv-13>again it's a case of using your resources vs others :p
12:15<dggoldst>using my left hand only
12:16<gpd>bah meh and indeed grumpf
12:17<dggoldst>ok, so you've got 5+ domains on one debian installation. you set up MX records so that mydomain1.com mydomain2.com mydomain3.com all point to the IP of your linode? Like one exim handles all those domain names?
12:18<afv-13>it resolves ip and uses that
12:18<dggoldst>ooooo
12:18<gpd>you need to setup the domains in exim|postfix
12:19<dggoldst>wild
12:19<gpd>i use postfix virtual mailboxes so i don't have to create accounts for each domain user
12:19<afv-13>dpkg-reconfigure exim4-config
12:20<gpd>but i use flat files rather than mysql to lower overhead
12:21<dggoldst>makes sense
12:21<gpd>that way i can forward some ppl's mail to gmail|wtf and i can keep all my /precious/ mail in /home/vmail/domain/user/Maildir :)
12:21<dggoldst>you have precious mail?
12:21<gpd>then i know where it is... and that GOOOOOGLE or some other retard isn't looking after / about to delete / scanning it for WMDs
12:21<afv-13>lmao
12:22<gpd>mmm precious
12:22<dggoldst>you'd be surprised how many WMDs get into this country by gmail
12:22<gpd>EMDs ...
12:22<dggoldst>they're gzipped first and hard to detect
12:24<afv-13>might be pgp'd instead
12:25<dggoldst>i accepted in 1996 that i have no privacy
12:26<afv-13>can i quote you on that?
12:26<dggoldst>yes
12:26<afv-13>:D
12:26<gpd>yeah, but *giving* your mail to someone who *tells* you they are going to scan it for *adverts*...
12:26<gpd>if it was 10Mb would you do it?
12:26<gpd>no.
12:26<dggoldst>this chat is getting googlized
12:27<gpd>so they have *bought* you.
12:27<gpd></rant>
12:27<dggoldst>anyway, i've got a firefox extension that filters out the gmail ads.
12:28<dggoldst>and it doesn't bug me that a pattern matching algorithm is reading my email.
12:28<dggoldst>pattern matching algorithms need something to keep themselves amused

19:08<gpd>yeah i probably should learn sed
19:08<gpd>do you know if sed can do <span.*?>
19:08<gpd>or is there a simpler regex that i should be using?

19:54<robertsa>hm, I had a reverse DNS issue earlier.
19:54<robertsa>One of the DNS servers at work fell over and I had to restart it, it's now giving the updated hostname.
19:54<robertsa>So it's probably just not updated yet, even though the config on linode's end is correct.
19:55<robertsa>Reverse DNS updates always take forever at work, but I always thought that was beurocracy with bigpipe.
20:00<TheFirst_>hmm 56 is back up
