07:36<jblack>Hello. I'm considering moving from a business dsl account to a couple linnode virtual servers.
07:37<jblack>Will I still be able to run my mailserver?
07:54<jblack>Provided that's a yes, I'm willing to sign up for a pair of linode 100s and wait for them to become available
08:13<kvandivo>you can do essentially anything on a linode that you can do on a home machine, as long as it doesn't involve kernel mods or freaky hardware
08:14<kvandivo>main consideration with a linode is RAM. Make sure you get a 'node large enough to hold a specially tuned system for what you want to use it for in RAM
08:22<jblack>I'm pretty good on ram. I'm using xen here; most of my virtual machines are cut back to 32 or 64 megs of ram

16:46<xinu>one may or may not get what one pays for...
16:47<eFUDd>.... assumption is the mother of all fuckups.
16:47<Battousai>one doesn't pay a whole lot for uml/xen either ;)
16:48<eFUDd>... damn you folk are full of assumption.
16:48<eFUDd> is a "free VPS Management framework"
16:48[~]xinu pays $124.95/mo for linode
16:49<@mikegrb>same kernel shared by all virtual servers
16:49<eFUDd>friend of mine did a lot of the vserver implementation for a private company....
16:49<xinu>pls check my ticket

17:58<Godko>ticket #
18:00<@mikegrb>Godko: did you want to keep the extra 25 mb ram?
18:02|-|internat [] has quit [Read error: Operation timed out]
18:02|-|internat [] has joined #linode
18:02<Godko>this give more storage space or will i be keeping the ~8GB i have already got?
18:03<@mikegrb>that was my next question
18:03<@mikegrb>there is more base space but not as much total as you had in extras
18:03<@mikegrb>do you want to keep the same amount of space you have and it just be cheaper or do you want to have the base plus same amount of extras
18:04<eFUDd>mikegrb, gimme 100gb for warez so can use this bandwidth i don't use!
18:05<Godko>i'll keep my extras
18:05<Godko>i keep running out of space when i go to install stuff :-\
18:05|-|Dreamer3 [~Dreamer3@] has joined #linode
18:06<@mikegrb>all set
18:06<Godko>went to go install gnome along side w/ kde i and i ran out of space
18:06<@mikegrb>you had a 4gb and 1 gb line item for the extras
18:06<@mikegrb>I went ahead and combined them into one 5gb line
18:07<guinea-pig>gnome and kde on a linode.. hmm
18:07<guinea-pig>not my place to judge!
18:08<Godko>gotta have toyz :)
18:08<guinea-pig>whatever man
18:12<JasonF>mikegrb: I really do wish you guys made disk space cheaper :/
18:13<JasonF>I could use another couple of gig, but at 1G/mo for $5, it's kinda steep

18:18<brocktice>I've spent all day screwing around with Amazon S3 because I want more space...
18:18<brocktice>While it seems neat, the lack of the ability to use kernel modules on linode is somewhat hampering my efforts

19:23<JasonF>brocktice: if you need a module, you can probably get it compiled in
19:29[~]xinu notices a moist corncob on the floor and slowly backs away...
20:00<brocktice>JasonF: I've considered asking about it, but on the other hand I'm also still having trouble with it on my workstation. There aren't very many production-grade solutions for S3 at this point...
