08:05<finnovatives>I want to host my domain using linode's managed DNS service
08:06<finnovatives>how to do it through DNS manager in control panel
08:08<@caker>finnovatives: point your domain's authoritative dns servers to ns1 &; then add records

09:26|-|FireSlash [] has joined #linode
09:32|-|bettsp [] has joined #linode
09:33<bettsp>I have a linode question, would it be shady of me to pay for extra disk space for a month to build a new server install, then unsubscribe from it? I want to recreate my server but I don't want a huge amount of downtime
09:34<bettsp>Or if there's a way I can do it locally and just upload the server image, that'd be even better
09:35<bettsp>Basically, my overall question is, what's the best way to create and upload a new server to my Linode without lots of downtime
09:36<kvandivo>others have done that (bought extra for when they need it and then get rid of it)
09:39<bettsp>What would be awesome is if caker made the images public (via Bittorrent or what) then you could build the machine in emulation / UML / whatever, then just upload the entire image and hit "Go"
09:40<kvandivo>the number of random things that could go wrong when changing systems would be monumental. handling those things would be a heck of a lot of work for a feature that most people wouldn't bother with
09:41<kvandivo>but, that aside, i agree that any new capability would be cool to ahve
09:43<bettsp>kvandivo: Yeah, but it'd at least be faster than doing it by hand. You could even go a step further and create a VMware appliance that pretends to be a Linode server (so the images you build in it match the Linode UML environment exactly)

18:07<irgeek>I hate you.
18:07<npmr>i find it hard to believe the denver would close on account of 2" of snow
18:07<irgeek>That's just the last hour. We had about 10" before that. Up to a foot now. :)

18:09<npmr>40 and thunderstorms
18:09<npmr>that's worse than snow
18:10<irgeek>Our governor has declared a state of emergency. Sweet.
18:10<f8>I love Texas weather - except for the summer
18:10<irgeek>npmr: Worse than snow? I don't know about that.
18:10[~]npmr likes snow
18:11<npmr>i want it hip-high every winter
18:11[~]f8 likes to look at snow
18:11<npmr>light and powdery
18:11[~]f8 does not like to put up with snow
18:11<f8>shoveling and what not
18:12<irgeek>This is not light and powdery. It's dense and heavy. Great for snowballs. Terrible for getting around.
18:12<f8>stuck cars idiot drivers bitter cold
18:12<npmr>i enjoy the challenge of driving in snow, so long as the other drivers aren't being stupid
18:12<f8>but the other drivers usually are being stupid
18:12<npmr>it's a shame
18:12[~]f8 fears them
18:13<troy>meanwhile on the other side of the planet its 86F sunny and no snow in sight
18:13<f8>4 wheel drive etc. will get them up to speed faster
18:13<f8>but it will not slow them down faster or help them steer
18:13[~]npmr has loosed two stuck vehicles so far this winter
18:14<irgeek>troy: Aussie?
18:14<irgeek>The view out my window ->
18:15<npmr>irgeek, Awesome
18:15<Eman>i think i much prefer rain to snow
18:16<troy>irgeek: yup
18:16<f8>I am connected to a server in australia by PCAnywhere over a modem connection.
18:16<npmr> <-- irgeek, your airport is closed
18:16<f8>it is sooooo slow
18:16[~]f8 hates windows servers
18:16<irgeek>npmr: They're saying it will be closed until tomorrow night.
18:17[~]npmr wonders if that's why his girlfriend's flight was late leaving o'hare today
18:17<irgeek>troy: Where? My mum's in Melbourne and dad's in Perth right now.
18:17<f8>the thing I do like about snow is how bright it makes everything at night
18:18<troy>irgeek: i live in perth but i'm currently staying about 300 miles north of there for a couple of weeks
18:20<irgeek>troy: Anywhere near Argyle Diamond Mine/Kununurra?
18:21<irgeek>f8: That picture is enhanced. It's actually kind of dark already. But I know what you're talking about.
18:30<irgeek>Downtown Denver is supposed to get 18-20 inches. :-/
18:31<irgeek>Scratch that. 18-24. That's a lot of snow.
18:35<irgeek>There is no way into or out of CO right now. All roads and the airport are closed.
18:39<@caker>irgeek: hello
18:39<irgeek>Hey caker.
18:41<troy>irgeek: not quite that far up, i'm on the coast just north of Geraldton
18:41<irgeek>troy: Ah. I'd love to be down there. Haven't been to Aussie for about 10 years now.
18:43<troy>irgeek: yeah mate, i love perth, great weather & not too crowded
18:44<irgeek>WTF? It's mostly stopped snowing up in the high country. It's all falling down here now. :(
18:45[~]troy has never seen snow
18:46<irgeek>troy: My aunt and grandfather came to Denver a few years back for xmas. Neither had ever seen snow. They didn't like it. Mum's family are warm weather people.
18:48<irgeek>Main N-S highway through Denver. About a mile from my house. Should be the middle of rush-hour now ->
18:49<troy>that looks mad
18:49<irgeek>caker: Did you see my reply on ticket 23483?
19:03<irgeek>Ha! All of the malls in Denver closed but some had to reopen their food courts because some people couldn't leave. :D

20:15<catch23>ok, here's my first problem after 120+ days of uptime: accidentally killall -9'd sshd, after killing apache.. oops, no mutt, no webmail, no way to get to password reset url as this is my email server. Any suggestions other than smacking myself for being stupid?
20:16<irgeek>catch23: You can go in through your console.
20:17<irgeek>From your main account page go to "SSH, Remote Console and Desktop"
20:17<irgeek>The username/password to get in is the same as you account manager login.
20:18<catch23>I almost forgot that was my host, doubt remembering a password I used for one day 3 months ago is going to happen
20:18<catch23>guess I better restore a backup and hope an invoice number is in my old mailbox
20:20<irgeek>catch23: You don't know your account manager login? How are you going to restore from backups?
20:20<catch23>I'll have to restore it to a local machine
20:21<irgeek>I'd say open a ticket, but you need to login for that.
20:21<irgeek>Maybe one of the admins is around.
20:21<irgeek>They would be caker, mikegrb or tasaro

20:34<catch23>Would you please?

20:39<catch23>Cant believe I used this server for my contact email
20:39<catch23>and sorry to trouble you
20:40<@mikegrb>it's not a problem
20:40<@mikegrb>I've changed the website password to the last six digits of the credit card number on file for the account
20:40<@mikegrb>and the username is correct
20:41<catch23>Perfect! thanks
20:41<irgeek>Thanks mikegrb
20:41<irgeek>You can close that ticket
20:42<@mikegrb>no problem
20:42<@mikegrb>thank you irgeek
20:42<catch23>It worked, thanks again
20:42<catch23>and thank you irgeek
20:56<catch23>well heck, that drops me down to 4 nines, if it doesn't go down again, lol
20:57<irgeek>Why'd you reboot? Couldn't you just restart ssh...
20:57<catch23>i didnt reboot but apache and mysql were down for about 30min
20:57<@caker>irgeek: I did -- thanks for the reply .. I'll shoot you an email in a few days
20:57<irgeek>caker: Okey dokey.
20:58<irgeek>catch23: Oh. That. Yeah. Could be worse I suppose.

21:54<@caker>irgeek: familiar with Evergreen area? My Aunt lives there
21:54<irgeek>Yeah, it's just up the hill.
21:55<@caker>I spoke with her tonight, actually :)
21:55<irgeek>Well, 45 minutes away, but in CO we consider that pretty close
21:56<@caker>ahh -- they also have a house in Breckenridge (/me awaits usual reaction)
21:56<@caker>I've never been to Breck, but everyone freaks when I say that...
21:57<irgeek>Breck is pretty nice. I'm not a huge fan of the ski resort, but it's pretty close to some better ones.
22:02<@caker>I've been to Denver a few times -- liked it a lot.
22:02<@caker>Lots of places for motorcycle riders (both on/off road)
22:07<irgeek>Denver's nice except when there's over a foot of snow outside. I'm guessing we're getting close to 18" by now. We were at 12" 4 hours ago.
