16:35<guinea-pig>you're responsible for your own backups
17:16<encode>linode is not a managed solution
17:17<encode>they dont provide managed services, and backups fall into this category

18:54<Lone_Wanderer>Okay, I've decided I want to nuke my Debian install and put Slackware on there instead. How do I go about doing that?
18:55<Lone_Wanderer>Oh. That was easy.
18:57<encode>hehe
18:57<Lone_Wanderer>Is the 2.6 kernel stable yet or should I be using 2.4 still?
18:59[~]Lone_Wanderer sighs. Maybe I'll eat dinner before I set everything up...
19:00<IntuiWorx>I've been running the 2.6 kernel for a bit now and haven't had any trouble with it.
19:00<Lone_Wanderer>k
19:00<Lone_Wanderer>I think I'll stick with 2.4 unless I run into problems. For now at least.
