00:40<eFUDd> Jun-13-06
00:40<eFUDd> A: I'm not sure. Snakes are pretty dangerous creatures.
00:42<Eman>what about snakes on planes?
00:52<Battousai>heh, i love that auction

01:32<gpd>caker: very cool :)
01:33<gpd>I see that it is available in LPM too... you sir are fast
01:35<blakez>whats going on?
01:36<blakez>new os added?
01:36|-|blakez changed nick to blake
01:40<@mikegrb>we only support linux
01:41<gpd>i see the 'experimental|testing' tag has been removed...
01:43<gpd>seems Ubuntu 6.06 is available in the distro wizard too
01:43<gpd>and yet it is not mentioned on the Front Page... ?
01:44<blake>fuck ubuntu
01:44<@mikegrb>watch your language
01:44<@mikegrb>this is the last time I will warn you
01:44<blake>its the first... i didnt know profanity was not allowed, my apologies.
01:44<@mikegrb>I've warned you in here before
01:46<warewolf>caker- make that announcement yet?
01:46<gpd>ok - I'm going to boot into 2.6.17 - fingers crossed
01:47|-|gpd_ [] has joined #linode
01:47|-|gpd [~gpd@] has quit [Quit: leaving]
01:49<anderiv>blake: examine this for details of your last infraction...
01:51<blake>[02:49] <anderiv> :-)
01:51<anderiv>yep - that's what I said.
01:52|-|gpd [~gpd@] has joined #linode
01:52<blake>i meant to put in browser
01:52<blake>what did i do wrong?
01:52<blake>thats a huge log
01:52<blake>you gotta tell me where to lok
01:52|-|gpd_ [] has left #linode []
01:52<anderiv>you seem to have a short for "language"
01:53<blake>oh, i didnt see that
01:53<blake>prob minimized mirc and opened it later after that had scrolled up
01:54<gpd>caker: looking good with 2.6.17 (so far)
01:54<gpd>why no announcement of 6.06 on the front page?
01:54<@caker>finishing it up
01:55<@caker>(moving to hosts)
01:55<blake>im very happy with my linode, im going to stop making enemies on #linode though so i dont lose it. :)
01:56<@caker>blake: and, you're this --><-- close to that happening, to. Please don't do that again, regardless of if it's to/from a Linode or not.
01:56<blake>swearing in #linode?
01:56<@caker>blake: no, the ddos activity
01:56<blake>i didnt
01:57<blake>there was a problem with that last nite
01:57<blake>somebody had problems with isp and blamed me
01:57<gpd>Linux v2.6.17 Being named "Crazed Snow-Weasel" instills a lot of confidence in this
01:57<gpd>release, so I'm sure this will be one of the better ones.
02:00[~]anderiv watches blake start to dig himself out...
02:00<blake>thats because of eman
02:00<blake>i was joking about ddos with him
02:00<blake>and he got attacked like 10 mins later
02:01<anderiv>still digging...
02:03<blake>digging out of a hole i never should have been thrown into in the first place...
02:03<anderiv>such is life.
02:04[~]anderiv tries to decide if it's worth deploying the new 6.06 ubuntu image...
02:04<@caker>anderiv: dist-upgrade, no?
02:06<anderiv>caker: yah - I've done's probably not worth it.
02:06<anderiv>I probably only have 2 hrs of work on my current image, though, so it's not that big of a deal.
02:07<blake>anderiv: ubuntu us a silly name, forget it
02:08<Eman>who cares if its a silly name, its a rather nice os
02:08<anderiv>blake: I don't think I'll be taking advice from you anytime soon, Mr. un-hackable server man.
02:09[~]warewolf actually adds someone to his /ignore list
02:09<@caker>Please, don't feed the trolls
02:10<blake>isnt ubuntu for children?
02:10<blake>its like a childrens linux or something
02:13<warewolf>my sparc is reinstalled
02:13<warewolf>now I just need to finish up the minor touches
02:14<anderiv>warewolf: ooh nice...server machine?
02:14<warewolf>no, desktop. SunBlade 1000
02:14<warewolf>my personal unix box at my desk
02:14<warewolf>nobody else uses it
02:15<warewolf>!@#$ I forget how I made the volume up/down buttons on the keyboard work
02:15<warewolf>all I recall was that I had to install some app, and frob some openwin file.
02:15[~]warewolf fumes
02:16<warewolf>ah, found it.
02:17<blake>its not good when your server admin thinks of you as a troll :-\
02:17<blake>better clean up my act
02:18<warewolf>yaay xmms works
02:18<warewolf>and so do my volume up/down and mute keys.
02:19[~]warewolf squirms in delight
02:19[~]anderiv saw "Cars" this afternoon.
02:19<anderiv>...decent movie.
02:19<blake>it's for children, no?
02:19<blake>not to be rude...
02:20<anderiv>couldn't past the fact that "Lightning's" voice was done by Owen Wilson.
02:25<warewolf>woah that is fucking cool
02:26<warewolf>the SFWxterm package ( XTerm) has an app called 'multixterm'
02:26<warewolf>it allows you to spawn multiple xterms, and then focus the 'multixterm' app, and send keystrokes to all the xterms you spawned
02:26<warewolf>quick and easy way to execute the same command on lots of boxes
02:26<@mikegrb>warewolf: language.
02:26<anderiv>warewolf: yes - I've seen that before. Never had occasion to use it though.
02:27<@mikegrb>my terminal client has that too
02:27<@mikegrb>it says "Sent to all tabs" and "Send to all tabs & windows"
02:27<warewolf>anderiv: well, I have loads of similar boxes to admin
02:27<warewolf>anderiv: IDS boxes, firewalls, web caches, etc
02:28<warewolf>anderiv: so this is a godsend for sysadmining
02:28<anderiv>warewolf: I'm sure it's very helpful for that env.
02:28<anderiv>much better than the cut/paste method :-)
02:29<@mikegrb>anderiv: for a small number
02:29<warewolf>I wrote a shell script
02:29<warewolf>I admin um .. four different types of IDS probes
02:29<@mikegrb>anderiv: much above 5 and it's just a pain in the arse connecting to all the machines and you need something better
02:29<warewolf>so I do sensordo -[TYPE] "command to run via ssh"
02:29<warewolf>or sensordo -all for all of them
02:30<anderiv>mikegrb: yes - I agree.
02:30[~]mikegrb does sendToAll SendToTP etc
02:30<warewolf>yeah, similar.
02:30[~]mikegrb has a multithreaded version too
02:31<@mikegrb>need to add support for the various groups though
02:31<warewolf>mine's not, 'cause I generally like to see what is going on
02:31<@mikegrb>it just does everything right night
02:31<@mikegrb>it will output it while it's going on if you ask it to
02:31<@mikegrb>otherwise once it is done it displays all the output in order
02:31<@mikegrb>and super fast
02:32<@mikegrb>commands take about 2.5 times normal to execute on everything

14:56<Xel>It's only 80?
14:56<Xel>It was 103 a day or two ago
14:59<Xel>caker, will my old upgrade support ticket automatically close itself after a certain period of time? Cause you guys did all the stuff on it, it just still says its open
14:59<@caker>Xel: we leave them open for a bit to make sure it went through ok
15:00<@caker>Xel: maybe just a reply from you saying it went OK
15:00<Xel>You got it
15:04<Xel>Hmm, any of you guys running debian 3.1?
15:04<@caker>yes, why?
15:06<Xel>I'm thinking about installing it on my box, and I'm not sure if I want to use the debs (which I know are bulky) or compile from source (which I know can be ... difficult)
15:06<Xel>How bloated are the binaries in apt?
15:07<afv-13>how bloated are binaries compiled for i386?
15:07<Xel>probably apache2, php4, and mysql (latest on the apt tree for stable)
15:07<Xel>afv, well they could compile a LOT of extra things in.
15:08<afv-13>Xel: you sound like a gentoo man
15:09<Xel>afv, nope.
15:09<Xel>I've been a debian man for many years.
15:10<Xel>I just haven't recently had to work with 150mb of ram on a machine.
15:10<Xel>So I'm being really anal about each thing that I install.
15:10<Xel>A little bloat on a machine with a few gigs of ram didn't bother me.
15:10<Xel>But with 150, every little bit counts
15:10<@caker>Xel: the binaries aren't really the issue, it's the default configs
15:10<Xel>caker, ahh. Well that's easy enough to tweak.
15:11<@caker>Xel: in apache's case, you can/have to reduce the number of threads/clients,etc, along with turning off unused modules, etc
15:12<Xel>Ok good.
15:14<Xel>Last question (for now) on this: How does apache 1.3 stack up against 2.0 as far as resource use?
15:15<Xel>hah caker.
15:15<@caker>it's all in how you configure it, IMO
15:15<afv-13>Xel: have you had a look at lighttpd?
15:15<Xel>Ok so the binaries themselves are pretty similar in resource usage given a similar configuration?
15:15<Xel>afv-13, I have not.
15:16<afv-13>might work as a replacement for you
15:16<Xel>Hmm just checked out their site.

19:07<internat>forgive my ignorance but since the new kernels support ntls and therefor there is no reason to move /lib/tls out of the way... is there a performance gain by using tls or do we lose out by keeping it?
19:08<Zymurgy>well, I like the end result of the process, and have dabbled somewhat, but no, the nick is not an indication of any particular skill - more of the fact that I picked the nick by opening the dictionary to the last page :)
19:10<anderiv>Zymurgy: hehe - fair enough.
19:10[~]anderiv was just curious.
19:10<anderiv>there aren't very many people around that know what Zymurgy means.
19:10<anderiv> I had to ask
19:11<anderiv>Zymurgy: I've been extract brewing for ~3 years and I'll be doing my first all-grain batch tomorrow.
19:11<Zymurgy>anderiv: no worries... I do like the idea of brewing though, just haven't had the space and the opportunity... I figure my levels of consumption help to support many that do brew, so I'm doing my part in the grand scheme of things :)

19:32<laptop_jake>i'm owed money
19:32<laptop_jake>and it's annoying
19:32<@caker>IIRC, the card number isn't displayed
19:32<xptek>Yeah, I thought it was the last four digits.
19:32<internat>the last 4 digits are if i remember correctly
19:33<xptek>Alright, so I could just go through "step two" and it wouldn't be a problem?
19:35<internat>anyone able to answer that question i had about ntpl
19:35<@caker>internat: hmm?
19:35<internat>forgive my ignorance but since the new kernels support ntls and therefor there is no reason to move /lib/tls out of the way... is there a performance gain by using tls or do we lose out by keeping it?
19:35<internat><== that one
19:36<xptek>caker: Right. Going to be an issue if the card holder is in a completely different state?
19:36<@caker>internat: no reason to move /lib/tls, and I don't think it's a perf decrease w/o NPTL .. I would think if anything it's faster with NPTL, but that's just a guess
19:36<@caker>xptek: nah
19:36<xptek>lol, alright. Some companies *cough* Verizon are annoying about that.
19:36<@caker>xptek: we're paranoid enough, but I can overlook this situation :)
19:37<xptek>"Sorry, you have to use a card with the same last name."
19:37<internat>okies then, ill put it back i guess
19:37<xptek>"Can I scan it and send it to you somewhere? I just want to pay my damn bill."
19:37<xptek>"Sorry, sir."
19:39<internat>yeah thatd be sucky
19:41<xptek>caker: There you go.
19:41[~]xptek glares at laptop_jake
19:41<laptop_jake>if you want to glare, glare at Jim Sundstrom
19:41<xptek>Fail. :D
19:41<laptop_jake>he needs to be castrated
19:42<@caker>all set
19:42<xptek>laptop_jake: If you don't update that by the end of the month, heads will roll. :D
19:43<laptop_jake>you mean by the next billing date
19:43<xptek>Well, whatever. :P
19:43<laptop_jake>because i don't know if i'm going to be paid within the next couple weeks. hopes are that i am
19:43[~]xptek shrugs
19:43<laptop_jake>but no promises :\
19:44<laptop_jake>i swear, i will castrate someone

20:28<@caker>gpd: thank you
20:28<encode>so that i can switch to 2.6
20:29<gpd>fantastic service caker - keep up the great work :D
20:30<Beirdo>going to definitely have to reboot sometime soon to use the extra RAM. Thanks, caker :) More RAM means less swapping :)
20:30[~]caker pushes 2.6.17
20:30<Beirdo>and less swapping is better for all
20:30<@caker>encode: you know you want it
20:31<encode>caker: yes, i want it, but i dont want the downtime
20:31<cow>nobody notices downtime on a sunday night
20:31<gpd>i just rebooted -- downtime was less than 2 minutes...
20:31<encode>im waiting for something to break, so i can upgrade my kernel, and roll in that extra 2GB i bought
20:31<encode>i know no-one will notice it - but i will
20:32<encode>and i'll lose my fantastic irssi uptime too
20:32<encode>Irssi uptime: 125d 5h 38m 4s
20:32<TheFirst>holy crizap it's more ram
20:32<gpd>bah - get over it - think of the 2.6.17 joy -- released y'day!

20:33<encode>i cannot compete
20:33<eFUDd>whohhoo! 1970!
20:33<@caker>!calc 14662 days in years
20:33<linbot>caker: 14,662 days = 40.1432256 years
20:34<gpd>that may be a little off...
20:34<eFUDd>i cheated at the math. :)
20:34<encode>i thought 14662 days was greater than my lifespan to date
20:34<encode>but i wasnt sure
20:34<gpd>anyone else runnign 2.6.17?
20:34<eFUDd>i based it on 3650 = 10yrs
20:34<encode>cos its early, and my brain is lazy
20:34<eFUDd>and ~3x that.

22:42<gpd>bingo - reproducible :(
22:42<Eman>uptime o' gigantic vpenis
22:42<FireSlash>gpd, Don't complain.
22:42<FireSlash>Put up a system info script on your website
22:42<FireSlash>Then boast how AWESOME your uptime is
22:43<gpd>you know - it just might work...
22:43<FireSlash>You can also use it to promote how STABLE and RELIABLE linode is!
22:43<FireSlash>So reliable they've not rebooted in YEARS
22:43<@caker>"my uptime predates Linux!"
22:44<gpd>yeah - except 40 years is before most of computing - but a minor point
22:44<Eman>"my linode first ran on eniac and hasnt been rebooted EVAR!"
22:45<@caker>it seems to be incrementing /proc/uptime correctly -- just the initial value isn't zeroed out
22:45<FireSlash>gpd, Linode started out as a pair of hamsters on wheels...
22:46<gpd>hamsters with abacuses - beautiful
22:47<Battousai>that might actually be before the abacus too
22:49<gpd>when is unix epoch ? 01/01/1970? in which case it isn't even that?
22:51<Battousai>yeah, i wasn't serious
22:51<gpd>i realize - just expected it to be set to time from 0 not some weird date in 1976...
