00:02<@caker>http://www.linode.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=5878#5878 <-- Lish watchdog script
00:02<rko>http://www.kotalampi.com/linode-status
00:02<@caker>ahh :)
00:02<@caker>rko: thanks
00:04<Nigel>caker, i'm just wondering if bind on ns2 actually knows of my zones (i.e. are they actually added to the main config file)
00:05<@caker>Nigel: what's a domain to grep on?
00:05<Nigel>'voidirc.net/org'
00:06<@caker># grep void named.conf.local
00:06<@caker>zone "voidirc.net" {
00:06<@caker> file "/vbin/ns-zones/voidirc.net";
00:06<@caker>zone "voidirc.org" {
00:06<@caker> file "/vbin/ns-zones/voidirc.org";
00:06<@caker># grep include named.conf
00:06<@caker>include "/etc/bind/named.conf.options";
00:06<@caker>include "/etc/bind/named.conf.local";
00:06<@caker>...
00:07<@caker>hmm .. try now :)
00:08<Nigel>caker, SOA records!! it works!
00:08<@caker>etc/init.d/bind9, not bind :)
00:09<Nigel>caker, hmm?
00:11<guinea-pig>hehe, helps to use the right script :)
00:11<Nigel>rehupping the wrong thing?

01:02<Fingaz>anybody around
01:02<Fingaz>I could use some advice
01:05<rko>shoot
01:05<Fingaz>I'm new to linux and I've mainly been learning unix on freebsd
01:06<Fingaz>so I used gentoo for my linux distro on my linode
01:06<Fingaz>but I can't get it to ebuild the portage tree correctly
01:06<Fingaz>it's keeps erroring out on ghostscript-0
01:06<Fingaz>so I can't install anything I want
01:06<rko>sorry... I'm not an expert on gentoo...
01:07<Fingaz>I really don't like the way their ports are setup compared to freeBSD
01:07<Fingaz>debating just dropping it before I get anything running and going with a different disto
01:07<Fingaz>distro
01:08<Fingaz>takes a very long time for to process their updates
01:08<rko>for the first time, yes
01:08<rko>then you want to put updates daily
01:08<Fingaz>gets to 90% then errors out
01:08<rko>I have gentoo at home, but I don't do much else than emerge -Davu world
01:09<rko>their website is quite informative
01:09<Fingaz>what's the davu switch
01:09<rko>look for rebuilding portage tree
01:09<Fingaz>yea I read through it a few times I'll check again
01:10<rko>deep, ask, verbose, update
01:10<Fingaz>ah
01:10<Fingaz>yea remember now deep looks updates dependencies also along with what you've installed
01:11<Fingaz>alright just keep playing with it thanks
01:12<rko>have fun
01:12<@mikegrb>lolz
01:12<Fingaz>yea lol just need it to update so I can get some work done
01:14<rko>emerge --pretend --deep --newuse world ?
01:14<rko>oops, I mean:
01:14<rko> /usr/bin/emerge --sync
01:14<rko>won't that sync it for you?
01:14<Fingaz>that's what I'm running
01:14<Fingaz>and it errors out
01:15<rko>let me try... I have that in my cron for nightly
01:17<rko>does it do rsync part fine?
01:17<Fingaz>I think so... I'm new to rsync
01:17<Fingaz>used to cvsup
01:19<Fingaz>I'm running it again now it just said rsyn completed ok
01:19<Fingaz>then when it's updating the portage cache is errors
01:19<Fingaz>around 90%
01:20<rko>>>> Updating Portage cache: 100%
01:20<rko>q: Updating ebuild cache ...
01:20<rko>q: Finished 24800 entries in 10.531924 seconds
01:20<rko>no problems here
01:20<Fingaz>hmm
01:20<Fingaz>I have a brand new install
01:21<Fingaz>error's every time
01:21<rko>can you first try to emerge new portage/emerge (or whatever package it belongs to)?
01:22<Fingaz>you mean try and emerge that particular package
01:22<rko>emerge emerge
01:23<rko>emerge portage
01:23<Fingaz>it's at 32% now
01:23<Fingaz>wait and see what it does
01:26<warewolf>be cautious of how much disk IO you chew up, emerging a lot can cause disk IO contention issues for others on your host.
01:28<rko>true
01:29<rko>I did mine at my home system, not at linode
01:29|-|donnchaocaoimh [~donncha@194.125.76.187] has joined #linode
01:34<Fingaz>>>> Updating Portage cache: 89%!!! Cannot resolve a virtual package name to an ebuild.
01:34<Fingaz>!!! This is a bug, please report it. (virtual/ghostscript-0)
01:34<rko>try updating emerge and portage?
01:35<rko>you might have old version and your tree is having something they don't understand
01:35<Fingaz>ok
01:35<rko>put look for 'cat /proc/io_status' first
01:36<Nigel>actually, thats a file i'm confused about, how is it intended to be read?
01:37<rko>http://www.linode.com/wiki/index.php/IO_Tokens
01:38<Nigel>DOH!
01:38[~]Nigel slaps self
01:40<Nigel>rko, ahhh thats
01:40<Nigel>i totally understand it now (honestly) good system
01:42<Fingaz>I'm still pretty much close to my max amount of tokens
01:42<Fingaz>what is the command to emerge emerge?
01:42<Fingaz>I'm sorry for all the questions just first time I've ever used gentoo
01:43<Fingaz>still really unfamiliar with it
01:43<rko>emerge emerge
01:44<rko>emerge portage
01:44<Fingaz>pfft that's pretty simple
01:44<rko>give those two commands
01:44<Fingaz>aight give it a try
01:44<Fingaz>root@localhost proftpd # emerge emerge
01:44<Fingaz>!!! ARCH is not set... Are you missing the /etc/make.profile symlink?
01:44<Fingaz>!!! Is the symlink correct? Is your portage tree complete?
01:45<Fingaz>oh wait do I need to be in the root of portage tree
01:45<rko>oh yes!
01:45<rko>oh
01:45<Fingaz>same error
01:45<rko>no I thoght you asked if you need to be root
01:46<rko>no, that shouldn
01:46<rko>'t matter
01:46<Fingaz>same error about the make.profile symlink
01:46<Fingaz>and asking if my portage tree is complete which is obviously isn't since it can't sinc
01:47<Fingaz>sync
01:47<rko>where do you have it symlinked?
01:48<Fingaz>this is where my noobness comes in. I don't know how to check that
01:48<rko>file /etc/make.profile
01:48<Nigel>Fingaz, ls -l /etc/make.profile
01:48<Nigel>:P
01:48<Nigel>Fingaz, or stat /etc/make.profile
01:49<rko>or file :-)
01:49<Nigel>rko, i didn't think file says
01:49<rko>it does if it's a symlink
01:49<Fingaz>/etc/make.profile -> /usr/portage/profiles/default-linux/x86/2005.0
01:50<rko>ok, so you had it there...
01:50<rko>I think google will be your friend:-)
01:50<Fingaz>always is :)

14:37<guinea-pig>why is immigration such an issue?

14:38<blake>surely living in boston you can see that
14:38<guinea-pig>they *are* this country
14:38<blake>wtf
14:38<blake>how?
14:38<guinea-pig>let me see. i'm 1/64th native. the rest of me is immigrant-descended. what about you, irish boy?
14:38<blake>i'm sick of 800 lb. fat mexicans coming over here, not learning english, smelling like shit, and then trying to stab me
14:39<blake>that was different, my ancestors came over here and wanted to be american
14:39<blake>they wanted to learn english
14:39<blake>they were proud
14:39<guinea-pig>they didn't know english already? :P
14:39<blake>these mexicans just want to exploit welfare and everything to be in spanish for them
14:39<guinea-pig>i'm not anti-mexican. i'm anti-spanish-language. there's a difference.
14:40<blake>yes, me too.
14:40<guinea-pig>i'm upset that there's not as much french influence as there is spanish
14:40<blake>although, it's safe to say the majority of them wish to not learn english.
14:40<blake>so they're almost one and the same.
14:40<guinea-pig>they'd learn it if they had to.
14:40<blake>no, i don't think they would.
14:40<guinea-pig>*had* to
14:41<blake>i'm convinced they don't have the ability to.
14:41<blake>they're too stupid.
14:41<guinea-pig>...
14:41<blake>that's why they die on the side of the road in downtown crossing
14:42<guinea-pig>so you're saying hispanics are less intelligent? is that what you're saying?
14:42<blake>i'm saying the immigrants are, yes.
14:42<blake>mexico is a poor country.
14:42<blake>it's not racist or baseless to come to the conclusion that poor people are not as intelligent.
14:42<guinea-pig>not just the immigrants. the hispanics. it's been studied.
14:43<blake>i would say so, yes.
14:43<blake>because hispanics are generally poor.
14:43<guinea-pig>http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Race_and_intelligence
14:43<blake>i agree with that
14:43<guinea-pig>i don't know if i agree that they can't learn a second language, but i agree that they don't feel they NEED to
14:43<blake>asians are very intelligent
14:43<blake>they want us to conform to their needs.
14:43<guinea-pig>it's not an intelligence thing so much as a social/cultural thing
14:44<blake>when my family came over here, they worked their asses off to integrate.
14:44<blake>i mean, their was still irish pride.
14:44<guinea-pig>there
14:44<guinea-pig>damnit
14:44<blake>but they learned english as fast as they could
14:44<guinea-pig>learn english yourself
14:44<blake>i used their properly...
14:44<guinea-pig>you mean theirs?
14:44<blake><blake> i mean, their was still irish pride.
14:44<blake>that's correct
14:44<guinea-pig>they had pride, it was theirs
14:45<guinea-pig>no it's not
14:45<guinea-pig>what is your usage of the word?
14:45<blake><blake> i mean, their was still irish pride. = correct
14:45<guinea-pig>no
14:45<guinea-pig>prove it
14:45<blake>there is for a location
14:45<blake>like "I'm going over there."
14:46<blake>wow, blacks are lower than hispanics?
14:46<blake>that's surprising.
14:47<guinea-pig>their is a pronoun implying posession. you didn't specify the noun to which it referred, so if that was the use you intended, it should've been 'theirs'
14:47<guinea-pig>however, if you just mean that the pride existed, 'there' is correct.
14:47<guinea-pig>there is not only location
14:49<guinea-pig>it's a very ambiguous sentence, so strict usage is very important to avoid misunderstanding!
14:49<npmr>http://www.googlefight.com/index.php?lang=en_GB&word1=there-is&word2=their-is

14:51<blake>no, it wasn't the same
14:51<npmr>actually it is
14:52<blake>and irish were treated like shit
14:52<chris>Actually, most of the mexicans I see in ohio are working the shit jobs that need to be done but no one wants to do

14:52<blake>haha
14:52<blake>i know man
14:52<blake>you don't see that with the mexicans though
14:52<guinea-pig>ooh, it's close: http://www.googlefight.com/index.php?lang=en_GB&word1=linux&word2=win
14:53<blake>and they're 100 times worst than the poor irish were
14:53<guinea-pig>worse
14:53<guinea-pig>LEARN ENGLISH
14:53<npmr>i have no idea whether "mexicans are ignorant" or "mexicans are stupid" becuase there are a lot of them and i'm sure they're each unique
14:53<npmr>but i do know that you are stupid and ignorant
14:53<blake>they're slightly unique, but they're all stupid.
14:54<blake>come on, npmr. you're saying you wouldn't generalize mexicans as lazy?
14:54<guinea-pig>not the ones i've known
14:54<npmr>indeed not

14:54<blake>they kill for sport
14:54<guinea-pig>actually... aren't they always referred to as "hard-working mexicans" ?
14:54<blake>MS13; Latin Kings
14:55<blake>fucking scum
14:55<blake>they kill for sport
14:55<guinea-pig>what do they kill?
14:55<blake>they kill people
14:55<guinea-pig>oh
14:55<blake>for fun
14:55<guinea-pig>that's different
14:55<blake>so you can watch cnn as think "they
14:55<blake>"they're all nice and just wanna be happy and make minimum wage and be americans"
14:55<blake>that's bullshit
14:56<blake>they're fucking animals
14:56<blake>you haven't seen the shit i have
14:56<npmr>are implying that all mexicans are members of the gang Latin Kinds?
14:56<npmr>Kings
14:57<blake>nope, but alot are
14:57<npmr>how much is "a lot"?
14:57<guinea-pig>indeed
14:57<blake>i'm not saying more thna 50%
14:57<blake>i'm saying enough that it is a serious issue
14:57<npmr>well, what *are* you saying?
14:57<blake>enough to need to stop immigration
14:57<npmr>you're saying that the Latin Kings are the reason we need to stop immigration?
14:57<blake>because research has been done showing illegal immigrants reproduce alot faster than others
14:58<blake>so it may not be aproblem now, but it will grow exponentially
14:58<guinea-pig>oh you're talking about ILLEGAL immigration. you never mentioned that.
14:58<blake>8 mexicans are born for everyone that dies
14:58<guinea-pig>you just asked if i was for or against immigration
14:58<blake>read up on exponential growth
14:58<blake>in 20 years this country is going to be majority spanish speaking at this rate
14:59<npmr>so what?
14:59<blake>this isn't mexico.
14:59<npmr>so what?

15:00<blake>until you have seen the shit i have
15:00<npmr>that's rich
15:00<guinea-pig>so let's back up a minute
15:00<guinea-pig>there's a problem
15:01<npmr>i live in a mixed neighborhood in chicago, where the store signs are typically in two languages
15:01<blake>no, you don't see shit in harvard square
15:01<blake>you fuck
15:01<npmr>english and spanish is just one possibility
15:01<npmr>there's also english and arabic
15:01<blake>all you see is your harvard buddies all talking about how they love immigrants
15:01<npmr>and english and korean
15:01<guinea-pig>you believe in one solution to the problem
15:01<blake>they never had a family member stabbed by a fucking beaner
15:01<npmr>and you know what, i do see immigrants
15:01<guinea-pig>blake: I HAVE NO HARVARD BUDDIES
15:01<npmr>every day
15:02<guinea-pig>so shut the fuck up because you don't know me any more than i know you
15:02<blake>and if me and my southie boys see some beaner trying to look tough, we like our odds
15:02<npmr>i probably see more immigrants every day from more places than you
15:02<npmr>so, no, i am not ignorant
15:02<npmr>but you are
15:02<blake>alright.
15:03<guinea-pig>i used to work in a factory full of polacks and vietnamese
15:03<npmr>you see mexicans laying in the gutter and immediately extapolate that that's the majority
15:03<guinea-pig>try understand them... i'd rather the mexicans!
15:03<blake>understand who?
15:03<npmr>you don't know any different than that because it's all you see, or care to see
15:03<blake>i agree, viets are disgusting, they kill for sport too.
15:03<npmr>you don't see the mexicans who own homes and businesses
15:03<guinea-pig>ugh
15:03<blake>but they're not coming over here like the mexicans
15:03<blake>npmr: that's my point
15:04<npmr>no, it's mine
15:04<npmr>*i* do see them
15:04<blake>what do you think happens when there are more immigrants than blue collar jobs?
15:04<blake>CRIME
15:04<npmr>there's raoul who bought george's restaurant on foster avenue when george and hellen retired
15:04<blake>it's going to be too late when you see it.
15:04<@mikegrb>lolz
15:04<blake>lol raoul
15:04<npmr>there's jesus, a friend of my girlfriend who works for motorola
15:04<blake>i'll knock his head in with a tire iron
15:05<npmr>there's a couple of dozen mexican families living on my block
15:05<npmr>they go to work every day and send their kids to school, just like the white folks and the black folks and the koreans and the arabs
15:05<guinea-pig>people will do what they need to do to survive
15:06<guinea-pig>maybe we need to redefine what "surviving" means
15:06<guinea-pig>maybe we already have, and it backfired.
15:06<blake>i'm not saying i wouldn't come over here if i were a poor mexican.
15:06<blake>i'm saying we shouldn't allow it.
15:06<guinea-pig>why not?
15:06<blake>i would try too.
15:07<blake>that doesn't make it right.
15:07<blake>"they just want a better life" doesn't work
15:07<guinea-pig>who says it's right or wrong? who says country borders even make sense?
15:07<blake>any more than killing for "a better life" is
15:08<guinea-pig>GAR
15:08<blake>guinea-pig: this country is being invaded, if you're not just playing devils advocate, it's people like you that will bring this country down, not muslim terrorists
15:08<guinea-pig>blake: don't even get me started on muslims
15:08<blake>muslims are nothing
15:08<blake>that's just a tiny blotch in history
15:08<guinea-pig>you associate those two words so easily
15:08<blake>it will come and go
15:09<guinea-pig>would you prefer we invaded mexico?
15:09<guinea-pig>annexed it?
15:09<blake>no, why invade?
15:09<blake>just throw the mexicans out
15:09<guinea-pig>well, if mexico is part of the US, then they won't need to come up here naymore, would they?
15:09<blake>i mean, we need to fight the terrorists, but it's not as big a deal as the immigrants
15:10<blake>why would it be part of the US?
15:10<blake>and yes, they would come up.
15:10<guinea-pig>hey, here's an idea: let the terrorists fight the immigrants
15:10<blake>because there section would be shit
15:10<guinea-pig>blake: if we annex mexico....
15:10<blake>if we annex mexico, it will be the same problem, just civil war

15:11<blake>you're fucking stupid
15:11<blake>im gonna come over to dudley and fuck you up asshole
15:11<guinea-pig>hey, here's an idea. let's annex the world. no more borders. no more disputes. it'll be wonderful
15:11<blake>guinea-pig: why would there be no disputes?
15:11<guinea-pig>blake: why do you hate me/
15:11<blake>we had a civil war in the us, there were no borders.
15:11<blake>you fucking moron
15:11<blake>i hate you because it's people like you that destroy this country.
15:12<blake>more so than terrorists
15:12<guinea-pig>you can't go around killing everyone who disagrees with you.
15:12<guinea-pig>you're no better than those gangs you hate so much, if you do.
15:12<blake>guinea-pig: who suggested that?
15:12<blake>guinea-pig: so you would like no borders?
15:12<blake>all one country?
15:12<guinea-pig>sorry, i associated "fuck you up asshole" with killing
15:13<guinea-pig>my mistake :)
15:14<guinea-pig>blake: i don't know what i'd like. maybe i'd like to go back to a time pre-border, when you didn't have to worry about the next village over because it was so rediculously far away
15:14<blake>that's not an option
15:15<guinea-pig>sure it is. it's a big country.
15:15<blake>it's not an option for the country as a whole
15:15<blake>that's what i mean.
15:15<guinea-pig>it's an option for me. i don't care about the country as a whole.
15:15<blake>and that would only work for 10 years
15:15<guinea-pig>and of course, that's the problem for everyone: they only care about themselves and their immediates

15:17<guinea-pig>i don't understand those images.

15:18<blake>legalize the illegal irish
15:18<guinea-pig>legalize WHAT about it?
15:18<blake>didn't you hear about that on the radio?
15:18<blake>it's big news in boston.
15:19<guinea-pig>i don't listen to the radio. how long ago?
15:19<blake>they want to legalize all illegal irish
15:19<blake>it's got a good chance of passing
15:19<guinea-pig>what's illegal about being irish?
15:19<guinea-pig>oh.
15:19<guinea-pig>immigrants?
15:19<blake>yup
15:20<guinea-pig>how do you feel about that?
15:20<guinea-pig>i see you're not getting in a big fuss about irish imigrants, the way you were about mexicans.
15:21<blake>well, the argument they are making is that the US has a good relationship with IRL
15:21<blake>but, i'm not for it really
15:21<guinea-pig>the US has a bad relationship with mexico?
15:21<blake>it's ammunition the mexicans can use
15:21<blake>yes, we do.
15:21<guinea-pig>i was not aware
15:21<blake>yup
15:21<guinea-pig>hell, then why are we attacking iraq?
15:22<guinea-pig>let's get mexico!
15:22<blake>because we can't attack every country that acts stupid
15:22<blake>what?
15:22<guinea-pig>but we can attack some countries that act stupid?
15:22<blake>we can attack the ones that threaten us.
15:22<blake>every country has that right.
15:22<blake>every person has that right.
15:22<guinea-pig>you threatened me.
15:22<blake>to defend itself
15:22<blake>then defend yourself

15:23<blake>you're an idiot.
15:23<guinea-pig>no i'm not.
15:23<blake>you would love to see this country overrun by illegals.
15:23<guinea-pig>i'm just a bit ignorant
15:24<guinea-pig>then make them legal and it won't be illegals :P
15:24<blake>i wanna see your face at that moment when an illegal is about to stab you for 20 bucks and you're thinking "oh fuck, i was stupid, now i'm paying for it with my life."
15:24<guinea-pig>i'm very much in favor if legal immigrants.
15:25<guinea-pig>why are these people illegal, is my question?
15:25<blake>because they came over without applying for citizenship...
15:25<blake>are you stupid?
15:25<guinea-pig>then why don't they apply?
15:25<blake>because they know they wouldn't be approved
15:25<guinea-pig>why not?
15:26<blake>because too many illegals are here, so the ones applying can't get here legallt

15:33<blake>if you saw somebody murdered for no reason would you say "from who's perspective is that wrong?"

15:39<blake>nothing you say will change the way i think
15:39<guinea-pig>i know i'm wrong in my thinking. i just don't know what parts are wrong.
15:39<Eman>maybe if your border security actually did their job and kept the mexicans out, illegal immigration wouldnt be such a problem
15:39<guinea-pig>so i question
15:39<blake>i'm gonna go out with my southie boys every saturday night and look to solve a little piece of the problem
15:39<blake>do the best i can to fix it
15:39<guinea-pig>blake: solve?
15:39<blake>Eman: I agree.
15:39<blake>that's right
15:39<blake>fix the problem

15:40<guinea-pig>you're not fixing the problem in southie.
15:40<blake>i do my best.
15:40<Eman>you need a border with a berlin style wall
15:40<guinea-pig>you can't fix the problem
15:40<guinea-pig>it's a government thing that'll fix the problem.
15:40<guinea-pig>if there is even a "fix"
15:40<blake>Eman: I'm convinced they would find a way over. They're too lazy to learn English, but they will always find a way in.
15:40<guinea-pig>go to the source, not the end result of a problem.
15:41<guinea-pig>blake: is it a way in... or a way out?
15:41<blake>huh?
15:41<blake>it's a way out for them.
15:41<guinea-pig>are they coming to US to come to US, or are they coming to US to escape Mexico?
15:41<guinea-pig>there's a major difference
15:41<blake>either way, they're coming in.
15:41<guinea-pig>and if it's the latter, nothing short of "fixing" mexico will change anything
15:41<guinea-pig>so don't bother in southie
15:42<blake>guinea-pig: when illegals fear for there lives, that will make a change
15:42<guinea-pig>and if they are "ruining" the US
15:42<blake>maybe not completely, but a tiny change
15:42<guinea-pig>then they'll continue ruin it to a point where the scales balance, and the US is equal to Mexico.
15:42<guinea-pig>so don't deal with them in southie

15:46<blake>guinea-pig: The more reasons they have to not come here, the better.

15:47<guinea-pig>so my question now is why do they want to leave mexico?
15:48<blake>Because Mexico doesn't have a welfare system like ours that can be exploited.

17:15<taupehat>Hmm, I think blake barrie should be proud to give his beliefs in here. As someone who's likely to do some hiring in the future, I would certainly appreciate knowing how he speaks of such things.
17:15<taupehat>While I'd be one to circular-file his resume in about 0.00003 seconds as a result, who's to say he wouldn't find a more sympathetic audience when he applies to be a sysadmin for, say, the KKK, or maybe the Republican Party?
17:17<taupehat>(assuming there's a huge difference between the two - I sometimes have difficulty discerning between the two)

20:14<guinea-pig>haha
20:14<guinea-pig>warewolf: nice
20:15<taupehat>they finally ghosted his client
20:15<taupehat>after not insignificant discussion
20:16<encode>i also have blake on ignore
20:16<encode>maybe thats why this conversation doesnt make much sense
20:16<taupehat>heh
20:17<taupehat>he came in, did his thing, dropped some f-bombs
20:17<encode>who ghosted who's client, and what does that mean anyway
20:17<taupehat>nothing new
20:17<taupehat>encode: lilo's client - ghosted by freenode staff
20:17<taupehat>his client lingered weeks after he had died
20:18<warewolf>on efnet /wii sk0t
20:18<encode>ahh
20:19<@mikegrb>http://thegrebs.com/~michael/ladder/05.jpg <-- me at the end of an 8.5 story ladder
20:19<encode>it looks like you have a face mask on
20:20<@mikegrb>nah
20:20<taupehat>mikegrb: don't look down!
20:20<@mikegrb>bad light
20:20<encode>ok
20:20<encode>it looks kinda like a cartoon face
20:20<@mikegrb>light was brought up a lot
20:20<@mikegrb>was black before
20:20<@mikegrb>but you are right
20:20<encode>8.5 story ladder...thats pretty long
20:21<@mikegrb>didn't realize that
20:21<@mikegrb>yes indeed
20:21<@mikegrb>took a while to get up there
20:21<@mikegrb>and then the step didn't want to come down
20:21<@mikegrb>had to go ahead and clip in and yank it with both hands
20:22<@mikegrb>quite a bit of sway once you get to the last segment
20:22<@mikegrb>and then the operator rotated the ladder around
20:23<encode>what were you doing up so high?
20:23<taupehat>hehe
20:23<@mikegrb>one of the things I have to have signed off as doing to not be a rookie
20:23<taupehat>encode: getting motion sickness, no doubt
20:23<taupehat>it's that subtle form of hazing that falls fairly within the scope of "training"
20:24<taupehat>I've got a 40-foot ladder I have to climb regularly as a function of my new job
20:24<taupehat>and it's definitely a "let the new guy do it" kind of task
20:24[~]taupehat rubs his hands together as he's now rated on the scissor lift and will just use that instead
20:25<@mikegrb>http://thegrebs.com/~michael/ladder/08.jpg a view with more of the ladder
20:25<taupehat>ahh, that looks like a short trip to "overcoming vertigo for dummies"
20:25<taupehat>mikegrb: any breeze?
20:26<@mikegrb>it's always windy here
20:26<taupehat>whee!
20:30<encode>i'd feel scared it was going to fall over
20:30<encode>or that i'd fall off coming back down
20:41<Drew>Im trying to sign up for the forums, but it won't let me sign in with no/spam, I think I'm missing something?
20:42[~]taupehat wonders if drew is also known as droo
20:42<Drew>no... I'm not
20:43<taupehat>k
20:44<@mikegrb>Drew: have you signed up for a forums account?
20:44<@mikegrb>it's seperate from the linode account
20:44<Drew>That's what I'm trying to do now. A login pops up saying "please sign in with no/spam as user/pass"
20:44<Drew>I type it in and it doesn't work
20:45<@mikegrb>yeah username = no password = spam in the http auth box
20:45<taupehat>eesh
20:46<Drew>hmm
20:49<@mikegrb>lolz
20:49<Drew>ohh got it now finally lol
