12:44<@caker>yes
12:44<Karnaugh>ok cool
12:45<Karnaugh>anything new with Linode?
12:45<Karnaugh>I havn't checked up on it in like ages
12:45<@caker>check back in a few days
12:45<Karnaugh>free stripers with new signups or anything interesting?
12:45<Karnaugh>whats happening in a few days?
12:46<@caker>my lips are sealed
12:46<Karnaugh>how many is a few?
12:46<afv-13>hi Colin
12:46<Karnaugh>afv-13: hi
12:46<afv-13>you well?
12:46<Karnaugh>as well as can be
12:46<Karnaugh>yourself?
12:47<afv-13>not too bad thanks
12:47[~]Karnaugh wonders why so many people are complaining on the comunity forums
12:47<orospakr>let me guess!
12:48<afv-13>Karnaugh: that's probably the test xenode
12:48<orospakr>the Xen rollout!
12:48<Karnaugh>"Oh noes, I can't run a Quake 4 server on my Linode because of teh lame IO token cap"
12:49<Karnaugh>A Xen rollout doesn't thrill me
12:50<Karnaugh>unless its going to somehow happen without rebooting my linode :P

13:26<anderiv>beer?
13:26<anderiv>:-)
13:26<warewolf>and no I don't think it is a Xen rollout.

14:08<@mikegrb>so if you migrate to a new host and then have a problem, original images are still there

14:09<linbot>New news from wiki: OpenSSH Tutorial <http://www.linode.com/wiki/index.php/OpenSSH_Tutorial>
14:09<npmr>mikegrb, sounds like you need a retention policy *badly*
14:10<npmr>that stuff should have a limited lifetime
14:10<npmr>and also, how is it that a disk space outage brought down a linode?
14:11<@mikegrb>dunno there

16:59<Battousai>not in so few words, of course
16:59<npmr>the service reps have no clue what you're talking about but will fumble around for a while before they figure out that they don't do telegraphs anymore
16:59<blake->well, let me ask this question
17:00<blake->you wont cut my server for having questionable content?
17:00<blake->only if fbi has warrant?
17:00<npmr><-- not linode

17:01<blake->wow
17:01<npmr>and that means breaking laws
17:01<blake->so its not even like a
17:01<blake->"dont ask, dont tell"
17:01<npmr>yeah, basically
17:01<blake->or they turn a blind eye?
17:01<blake->cuz i gotta run ircd with like 3982452874975984567805987 bots on it

17:03<blake->yes
17:03<blake->but that aside
17:03<npmr>a DoS against one customer usually affects everyone on that host
17:03<npmr>it's not about victim/attacker
17:03<blake->well
17:04<blake->a host should stand behind a victim
17:04<npmr>it's about giving everyone else on your host the service they paid for
17:04<Dreamer3>npmr: i don't know that it's good cause to terminate an account, but when that account is in violate it surely is
17:04<blake->not dump them to stop the attack
17:04<blake->yes if violating
17:04<blake->i agree
17:04<blake->but what if its political site
17:04<npmr>Dreamer3, i've seen it happen both ways
17:04<blake->like antiliberal.com
17:04<Dreamer3>npmr: yeah
17:04<blake->and it gets ddos
17:04<Battousai>what does that have to do with anything?
17:04<Dreamer3>npmr: you have to protect the bottom line
17:04<blake->TROLRF
17:05<npmr>i've seen caker and mikegrb jump through a lot of hoops to get DoS's blocked at the router
17:05<Dreamer3>npmr: ah, that's more like what i'd expect
17:05<npmr>and i've seen them pull the plug on a customer when they find that the DoS was provoked by activity that voilated the ToS
17:05<Dreamer3>yep
17:05<Dreamer3>right oh
17:06<npmr>politics does not violate the terms of service

17:07<blake->would linode get rid of them?
17:07<npmr>...

17:07<npmr>politics does not violate the terms of service
17:07<blake->npmr: you don't understand what i'm saying?
17:08<npmr>i do
17:08<blake->then why u keep saying
17:08<npmr>do you understand what i've said?
17:08<blake-><npmr> politics does not violate the terms of service

17:09<blake->ok
17:09<blake->thats all i needed
17:09<blake->npmr: one time would have been nice
17:10<Battousai>there's no clause in the ToS that says "You agree not to be the subject of a Denial of Service attack."
17:10<blake->right

18:02<blake->well caker
18:02<blake->can i ask you a question?
18:02<blake->do you accect amex? can i use a gift card?
18:02<@caker>blake-: you can
18:03<blake->just for the first moth to try it out
18:03<blake->ok, sounds good
18:03<@caker>visa/mc/amex
18:03<taupehat>hmm
18:03<blake->and i wont run ircd with 432789548976167 bots either :)
18:03<brccc>Caker, my linode seems to be working fine again !Thanks !
18:03<@caker>blake-: read the TOS and AUP very carefully, please
18:03<blake->what u reccomend me to use for os?
18:03<@caker>brccc: excellent
18:03<taupehat>any postfix gurus in here know how to drop a regex in main.cf so it mangles mail sent to username@cars.com to username@trucks.com?
18:03<@caker>blake-: well, the majority of our clients run Debian
18:03<blake->well i will run ircd, but nothing illegal, i promise
18:03<blake->and can i get like 3 extra ip's
18:04<blake->it only gives option for one i think
18:04<Internat>yep.. last i looked u need a very good reason for more then 1 extra ip
18:04<Internat>and bncs/vhosts dont count
18:04<brccc>How are the xen tests going? Is it working ok ? I've had a XEN VPS at unixshell and it crashed and NEVER came back. Probrably unixshell's issue not xen :)
18:04<blake->Extra IPs $1.00/IP/mo
18:04<blake->i will take 3 of those
18:04<blake->:)
18:05<blake->or whatever i can get
18:05<blake->i would like seperate ip for ircd from web/ftp/etc.
18:05<blake->and seperate for bnc
18:05<@caker>brccc: probably a combination -- our work on supporting Xen is complete, but we haven't rolled it out yet because I don't feel Xen is mature enough
18:05<blake->caker: onle last question.
18:05<blake->can u set reverse dns
18:05<blake->like irc.domain.com
18:06<blake->or bnc.domain.com
18:06<blake->i think its calleed arpa or something that i have to allow
18:06<blake->is that possible?
18:06<@caker>blake-: yes, through the LPM (control panel)
18:06<blake->WOW
18:06<blake->linode sounds great then
18:06<blake->and changing payment method is allowed as well?
18:07<blake->it will be a diff credit card every month
18:07<blake->that ok?
18:07[~]caker considers renaming LPM to linpanel(also, .[com|net|org])
18:07<blake->can i change payment method via lpm every month?
18:07<@caker>blake-: you can change billing info, and as long as it passes our fraud checks, that'll be fine
18:07<blake->ok
18:08<@caker>blake-: why do you need a new one every month?
18:08<blake->im running down to store now to buy amex gift card
18:08<blake->cuz its a gift card
18:08<blake->GIFT CARD RECIPIENT
18:08<blake->is the name on it
18:08<blake->i always use them online
18:08<blake->nothing personal
18:08<brccc>caker: ok. Congratulations for your work. I really admire linode. I provide similar service in my counter using different tecnology and it gives lot of headeache :)
18:08<brccc>counter=country
18:08<blake->ya
18:08<@caker>brccc: which technology?
18:08<blake->for one guy running it, it's amazing
18:09<@caker>blake-: there are two, btw
18:09<blake->two what?

18:09<blake->brb with amex gift card
18:09<Internat>thats what mikegrb is for :)
18:09<blake->thanks for your help
18:10<blake->i dont need a domain when i order, do i?
18:10<blake->will it ask for my domain?
18:10<brccc>caker: linux - vserver
18:10<@caker>blake-: try it and see
18:11<blake->well i dont have the cc yet
18:11<blake->i wanna make sure i can order a linode without a domain tied to it
18:11<@caker>blake-: domain not required, that would be silly :)
18:11<blake->i own a domain now but not sure if its what i want to use
18:11<blake->okk thanks for your help
18:11<blake->any way i can donate extra?
18:12<blake->the credit cards will have an extra 5 bucks on them every month
18:12<blake->well i will sort that out later
18:12<blake->maybe can use that 5 towards the next month somehow
18:29<Internat>u need a visa debit card :) it links to a savings account of ur choice so u only put as much in the savings account as u want on credit card, it cant go negatives, so therefor u cant get ripped off online from it

19:29<blake->well im not using it for malicious purposes

19:29<@mikegrb>actually, cc is more likely lost by a big company
19:29<blake->yes i know
19:29<@mikegrb>and normally because of an employee selling them
19:29<blake->but by small company abuse by owner etc. if they dont like you
19:29<@mikegrb>so it is smarter to give a cc number to a small company
19:29<blake->yup
19:30<@mikegrb>you are argreeing?
19:30<blake->maybe slightly better, yes
19:30<@mikegrb>that is exactly opposite of what you just said!

20:05<Battousai>yeah, something simple like that would be best
20:05<@caker>rh9 is dead, don't use it
20:06<JasonF>if you use rhl9, baby jesus will cry
20:07<Battousai>centos
20:07<Battousai>thats the good stuff
20:07<gpd>caker: ubuntu 4.10 is also dead - probably better to remove it
20:07<JasonF>blake-: I'd say Debian for a newb on a linode

22:03<jelson>I have a question about linodes, if anyone's actually here
22:03<gpd>ask away
22:03<jelson>Hi - thanks! First, linode rocks. A lot.
22:04<jelson>My question is this: I want to deploy an app that requires redundancy, and want to try to buy several (3-4) linodes and have each of them in a different data center. Is there any way to do that?
22:04<jelson>Or do I get randomly assigned?
22:06<gpd>i think you can request a data center, but you'll need to ask mikegrb or caker
22:06<jelson>OK; I guess they're not around, so I'll open a ticket
22:06<gpd>caker was last seen mowing his lawn :)

22:10<gpd>btw... afik there are only 2 linode data centers: he.net and theplanet

23:08<blake->cuz people would use them to test inet connectivity?

23:08<blake->ya thats what i thought
23:09<blake->i do it all the time
23:09<blake->problem
23:09<@mikegrb>it will still use their bandwidth

23:11<blake->how to manage a server

23:12<blake->what?
23:12<blake->yeah i know
23:12<blake->sorry for bothering you
23:12<eFUDd>I missed something I guess. I thought you asked how many customers lindoe had?
23:12<eFUDd>no, no bother!
23:12<eFUDd>Just curious myself.
23:12<blake->i will try a support chan for the os i am using, not #linode
23:12<eFUDd>What OS?
23:12<blake->oh, just curiosity, cuz he said 1% uses rh9
23:12<eFUDd>Ah, yes.
23:12<blake->implying more than 100 customers
23:13<eFUDd>Ok, so you aren't completely dumb, good. :)
23:13<eFUDd>try debian.
23:13<blake->thanks
23:13<eFUDd>linode has been around a few years now.
23:13<eFUDd>I'm edging towards my third year as a customer now.
23:13<blake->i will join a #debian chan for any further support not related to linode
23:13<eFUDd>I can't speak on customer count. More than 1, less than a billion. :)
23:13<blake->eFUDd: do you have linode 80?
23:13<@mikegrb>wow, eFUDd that's damn accurate
23:13<eFUDd>I have a 320 currently.
23:14<blake->what ram does that have?
23:14<eFUDd>I maintained the old -192 for a couple of years (~240 I gu ess it moved to?)
23:14<eFUDd>320 is 320MB of memory.
23:14<blake->im wondering if 100 mhz will be enough for me to run irc / web/ ftp /hlds
23:14<blake->etc
23:14<eFUDd>What is hdlds?
23:14<blake->half-life dedicated server
23:14<@mikegrb>eFUDd: super 1337 stuffs
23:14<eFUDd>Ah ha.
23:14<eFUDd>I'm guessing that hlds is a cpu/memory hog.
23:15<blake->it may be
23:15<blake->i ran it on a 350 mhz i own
23:15<eFUDd>You aren't "limited" to 100mhz tho, fwiw.
23:15<blake->from home i ran it
23:15<eFUDd>it's a logical vs. physical split for CPU.
23:15<eFUDd>physical for memory.
23:15<eFUDd>physical for disk.
23:15<blake->well is it 100 mhz limited? or 100 mhz guaranteed?
23:15<blake->cuz i assume if the server is not full i can burst more than 100 mhz
23:15<eFUDd>it's 100mhz based on cpu speed / customer count on that box.
23:15<blake->right?
23:15<eFUDd>for example, I generally use < 1% of my host. or something.
23:16<blake->yea...
23:16<eFUDd>I genrally use < 5GB of my 200GB of bandwidth...
23:16<blake->wow
23:16<blake->you run website?
23:16<eFUDd>I could in theory chew up all the CPU on the host.
23:16<blake->cuz i was wondering what the 50gb would give me
23:16<blake->should be ok for decent size website?
23:16<eFUDd>but tha tjust owuldn't be polite.
23:16<eFUDd>What is your definition of decent. :)
23:16<blake->well not google.com
23:16<blake->:)
23:16<eFUDd>I get a few K hits/month on bullshit I've colected over the years.
23:17<blake->like um...
23:17<eFUDd>If you really have a "decent" websie, you'll have a buncha dedicated servers. :)
23:17<blake->haha
23:17<eFUDd>If you have a few users on some off-the-shelf blog/crm/whatever, well, you'll be fine.
23:17<blake->insult to linode
23:17<eFUDd>insult? no.
23:17<eFUDd>fact.
23:17<blake->right a few users
23:17<blake->but what about like 500 unique hits a day
23:17<blake->should be ok
23:17<blake->?
23:17<eFUDd>heh. Yes.
23:18<blake->thats ok then
23:18<blake->:)
23:18<eFUDd>500 hits is, uh, nothing.
23:18<eFUDd>with that said, I wouldn't use the smallest linode
23:18<blake->i prob get like 50 unique a day
23:18<eFUDd>but that's _just my opinion_
23:18<blake->hehe
23:18<eFUDd>and preference.
23:18<blake->ya i know
23:18<eFUDd>I prefer more, not less.
23:18<blake->i can always upgrade, right?
23:18<eFUDd>Indeed.
23:18<blake->can i upgrade plans without losing my server?
23:18<eFUDd>I just switched to a 320 last month or so...
23:18<eFUDd>Yup.
23:18<blake->did you switch plans or just do the upgrade
23:19<blake->and upgrade to 320 yourself?
23:19<eFUDd>I switched plans to the larger...
23:19<blake->ok
23:19<eFUDd>support (mikegrb/caker/etc) sets up a migration in the lpm
23:19<blake->cuz u can have like 350 mhz ram on the 80 plan
23:19<eFUDd>(web management tool you log into at linode.com)
23:19<eFUDd>it says "HI. PLZ CLICK ME TO MIGRATE"
23:19<@mikegrb>roflz
23:19<blake->ROFL
23:19<eFUDd>it moves me to a new host, and starts up in ~20-30 minutes depending.

23:23<blake->have to find a free solution
23:23<eFUDd>I cracked my linux kernel. :/
23:23<blake->well i did
23:23<@mikegrb>eFUDd: you bad boy
23:23<blake->but i didnt know if it applied to something that fbi wont come around for
23:23<eFUDd>I even emailed Linus to taunt him.
23:23<blake->any free alternatives for a web panel like cPanel?
23:24<eFUDd>He just told me that he uses FreeBSD and didn't care. :/
23:24<eFUDd>blake, you tried ksh?
23:24<blake->nope
23:24<blake->lemme google it
23:24<blake->kornshell
23:24<blake->?
23:24<eFUDd>uber admin tool.
23:24<blake->:-P
23:24<eFUDd>Yup, that's it!
23:24<blake->hoping for something a lil more friendly
23:25<eFUDd>damn thing supports scripting!
23:25<blake->L)
23:25<blake->like cPanel
23:25<eFUDd>Heck, you can run it remotely.
23:25|-|internat [~internat@c210-49-250-210.ipswc1.qld.optusnet.com.au] has joined #linode
23:25<eFUDd>From say, a palm pilot!
23:25<@mikegrb>ja
23:25<eFUDd>It works on a serial connection.
23:25<eFUDd>Or SSH.
23:25<eFUDd>LAN and WAN.
23:25<eFUDd>Amazing piece of software.
23:25<eFUDd>built in editor to!
23:25<blake->everyone is so helpful here on linode :)
23:25<blake->will be sure to send my friends here
23:25<eFUDd>I did suggest putting me on ignore.
23:25<eFUDd>:/
23:26<eFUDd>Then again, I also suggested 2 years ago that linode have a minimum aptitude test for purchasers.
23:26<eFUDd>I'm an asshole. :/
23:26<blake->I would still be looking for hosting.
23:26<blake->:-\
23:26<eFUDd>I'm not elitist, just "tired".
23:26<eFUDd>you seem a good sport, so here is a piece of advise.
23:26|-|blake- changed nick to blake
23:26<eFUDd>I'm completely unaware of all web based control tools
23:27<eFUDd>I can't speak about them at all.
23:27<eFUDd>With that said, plesk isn't that pricy, is it? :)
23:27<blake>20 bucks a month is pricy
23:27<blake>for linode
23:27<blake>to me
23:27<blake>:)
23:27<eFUDd>Odd.
23:27<blake>but worth it i think
23:27<eFUDd>How much did you pay for Windows?
23:27<@mikegrb>lolz
23:27<blake>lol
23:28<eFUDd>At least the OS is free on linode....
23:28<eFUDd>It even works.
23:28<blake>eFUDd: i think we both know what i paid
23:28<blake>:)
23:28<eFUDd>now really, i'm gonna go smoke a smoke or toke a toke.
23:28<eFUDd>blake, indeed.
23:28<blake>cya
23:28<eFUDd>As an old pirate, I still bought all my software.... sad but true.
23:33<eFUDd>sigh. i'm a dumbass. I have a meeting at 10am, 11am, 12pm, 1pm and 3pm. :/
23:34<blake>hehe
23:39<blake>so i assume the only time i would be limited to 100 mhz would be if everyone else was using 100 mhz as well
23:39<blake>?
23:39<blake>am i correct?
23:45<blake>whoa
23:46<blake>vista beta avail for dl from ms.com
