07:27<encode>nope, i cant see them
07:28<henrysixwives>hmmm, must be a network problem. They're responding to bootup and shutdown via the linode interface.

13:08<graham>mikegrb ?
13:09<guest468>is there anyone here that can help me with the status of a refund?
13:09<graham>I have a migration in progress which seems to be taking a while. Could someone take a look ?
13:13<guest468>this is obsurd, I have been trying to get support for two weeks and no response. Needless to say, I am *very* dissapointed with Linode in respect to this
13:14<warewolf>have you emailed, or opened a trouble ticket?
13:15<warewolf>and I think you mean "absurd"
13:15<lucca>graham: did you shrink the fs's and so forth before starting?
13:15<warewolf>oh yeah, shrinking the FS helps a _lot_
13:16<graham>lucca: I just shutdown via the web interface.
13:16<lucca>guest468: billing can't be handled via irc... this is for your safety
13:16<graham>How do you shrink the FS ?
13:16<lucca>graham: next time be sure to go into the disk image menu and shrink first... makes it a lot faster
13:16<graham>Ok thanks for the tip.
13:17<graham>Migration has just failed actually.
13:17<warewolf>yeah, delete or compress as much junk as you can, then shrink, then migrate.
13:17<@mikegrb>graham: no, it's okay
13:17<@mikegrb>graham: it completed the migration of the image but was hanging
13:17<@mikegrb>so I killed the process then checked the md5sums
13:17<graham>mikegrb: Glad to hear that.
13:17<@mikegrb>655MB done on the next image so far
13:18<@mikegrb>will have to look into why it didn't exit when it was finished
13:18<graham>Cool. Will the web interface know when the job completes ?
13:20<@mikegrb>1020M done

13:28<@mikegrb>2.8G done
13:29<graham>When it completes, I boot via the interface and Voila job done ?
13:34<rko>did something just happened to host53? my load spiked up to 32+
13:34<rko>it's coming down now
13:34<@mikegrb>graham: yes
13:35<eFUDd>ha. my boss just walked by the "Take a Number" sign i attached to the cube shaking his head yet saying nothing.
13:35<graham>rko: I think host53 is the one I'm migrating my Linode too. Might explain the load.
13:36<@mikegrb>3.9 done
13:36<rko>graham, ok... maybe I should do mine, too
13:37<rko>I didn't know they had started...
13:38<graham>Not sure what you mean. I'm upgrading my Linode and as part of the upgrade it gets migrated to a new host.
13:38<graham>you host :-)
13:38<graham>(I mean 'your')
13:38<rko>ah, upgrade... what I mean is that everyone is supposed to migrate off from host53 in coming weeks
13:39<rko>welcome to host53 :-) please don't hog it
13:39|-|linville [~linville@] has quit [Read error: Connection timed out]
13:39<graham>Odd about migrating off it - why move me there in the first place.
13:40<graham>Maybe mikegrb can shed some light ?
13:40|-|linville [~linville@] has joined #linode
13:40<@mikegrb>I forgot about that :/
13:41<@mikegrb>uptime is 17 days
13:41<@mikegrb>which isn't spectacular
13:41<@mikegrb>but it's not going down every week
13:41<@mikegrb>graham: it
13:41<@mikegrb>s tje pmer
13:42<@mikegrb>it's the only h ost with a free slot at this time, if you'ld like I can cancel the migration and you can remain on your current host for the time being
13:42[~]bendy24 cuffs Battousai
13:42<graham>No, that's ok.
13:42[~]Battousai submits
13:43|-|spr [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
13:43<Battousai>a little tighter please
13:43<rko>do we have ETA for migrating off from host53?

15:53<taupehat>yeah haha
15:54<taupehat>loving the reviews
15:54<taupehat>Amazon if you're hiring and want programmers who write code that doesn't send out idiotic review-requests for stuff like this, email me.
15:55<taupehat>eFUDd: try this one:
15:55<taupehat>run sol.exe as SYSTEM =]
15:56<taupehat>I've tried it - it works./
15:56<eFUDd>no reason why one shouldn't be able to.
15:57<taupehat>especially when you originally logged in under the guest account
15:58<taupehat>it's an amazingly simple hack
15:58<taupehat>and very typical of M$ idiocy
15:58|-|linville [~linville@] has quit [Read error: Connection timed out]
15:59|-|linville [~linville@] has joined #linode
16:03<@mikegrb>yes, running windows is an amazingly simple hack
16:04<Eman>thats the funniest thing ive ever seen
16:04<taupehat>it's a hack allright, but I wouldn't call it anything simple. Quite the opposite - overcomplicated doesn't even begin to touch it. Witness: registry
16:05<taupehat>Eman: which bit - the amazon thing or the doze hax?
16:05<taupehat>I find them both funny
16:05<Eman>winshit thing
16:05<taupehat>it's just so perfect
16:05<taupehat>works great, too
16:06<Eman>it didnt work on this box cause the task scheduler service is broken some how, but worked on my other box that was just reinstalled
16:06<taupehat>however, you can prevent it by removing task scheduler access via group policy
16:06<taupehat>which I'd already done to the student accounts here, otherwise I'm sure someone would start trying it next year when the kids get back
16:07<taupehat>the high school kids in particular hate my guts - I banned myspace (with full support of administration, mind, but you'd think I stole their lunch money)
16:07<taupehat>so they'd like nothing more than to install all kinds of crap on the machines to get back at me
16:07<Eman>my college gave up on that... they just use deepfreeze to reimage them on boot and let us login as admin
16:08<taupehat>yeah, deepfreeze is nice that way
16:08|-|womble [] has quit [Quit: What's behind the round window...]
16:08<Eman>its really nice cause the machines arent fucked up every time you use them
16:08<taupehat>the local uni here just ghosts all the labs weekly
16:08<taupehat>which isn't quite as good
16:08<taupehat>since by thursday or friday the machines are all boogered up with warez
16:09<@mikegrb>mmm cake
16:10<Eman>they've also told us using IE is grounds for losing computer access
16:10<taupehat>haha, rad!
16:10<taupehat>odd, though - what if you really need a site that's idiotically-coded?
16:10<taupehat>you know, the ones that use ActiveX for fancy stuff like drop-down menus
16:11<Eman>their answer is too damn bad
16:11<taupehat>what school you attend?
16:11<Eman>st clair college in windsor ontario
16:11<taupehat>ah, so
16:11[~]taupehat has a kid coming up, wants to know which schools are worth a shit, and that's one consideration
16:11<taupehat>hell, I might apply there some day =]
16:12<Eman>the teachers seem to know their shit
16:12<taupehat>I have to go deal with an emergency - someone spilled ranch dressing in her keyboard

17:52<@mikegrb>[newhorizons@host9 lish]# status
17:52<@mikegrb>website says it is up too
17:52<Eman>i should have been more specific, its xen4
17:53<@mikegrb>[xen4@host48 lish]# status
17:54<Eman>[xen4@host48 lish] There is no screen to be resumed matching xen4.
17:54<Eman>Your Linode isn't running, or another console session is already active.
17:55<@mikegrb>that doesn't say it is not running for sure
17:55<Eman>website says:
17:55<Eman>Your Linode is currently
