03:16<FluffyFoxeh>"For gamers, you can now play your favorite games, right in your browser"
03:16<FluffyFoxeh>why on earth would I want to do that
03:16<Zimsky>yes, we've already giggled about it
03:16<Zimsky>tbh if you can achieve the same performance, why does it fucking matter?
03:18<FluffyFoxeh>because the web browser makes no sense as a place to run such things
03:18<Zimsky>FluffyFoxeh: why not?
03:18<Zimsky>the internet(ish) was originally only for US military communications
03:19<Zimsky>now we all use it for sending pictures of our genitalia and laughing at cats doing stupid shit
03:19<FluffyFoxeh>okay well maybe I should play Crysis in my IRC client or read emails in my file browser
03:19<FluffyFoxeh>because hey we can shoehorn arbitrary binaries into anything
03:19<Zimsky>yeah but you see, that makes no sense
03:20<FluffyFoxeh>and it makes sense to run Photoshop or Call of Duty in my web browser?
03:20<Zimsky>a web browser is designed to be able to display dynamic content and through stuff like javascript, execute local functional code
03:20<Zimsky>so, it makes more sense to run crysis in your browser than your irc client
03:21<Zimsky>personally, I'd rather leave the web browser for browsing the web
03:21<Zimsky>and natively-written applications as natively-written applications
03:21<FluffyFoxeh>even if it makes *more* sense that doesn't mean it's not still stupid
03:22<Zimsky>my point is, apart from "BUT BUT BUT IT'S LIKE PUTTING AN APPLE ON A CHAIR TO LOOK AT IT ON WEDNESDAYS", if you can use a browser to run something originally compiled as native binary at the same (or better performance, though that seems unlikely), then there seems to be no real issue apart from the idea of static predetermined purpose
03:24<FluffyFoxeh>still would rather not. web people find all sorts of ways to make everything they touch shittier
03:27<internat>im sure chrome and mozilla just want to gain insight into your native application usage.. Nothing to worry about, just more data collection at work
03:28<Zimsky>FluffyFoxeh: like php
03:28<Peng>Mozilla collects certain data for functional purposes, but you realize they're not the evil empire
03:28<Zimsky>the language that should never have been
03:29<Zimsky>mozilla are cool
03:29<linbot>New news from forum: Sales Questions and Answers • -DELETE- <>
03:29<internat>personally i find it good that google or mozilla (i cant remember which), are stickign it to symantec
03:30<internat>aww but i dont want to be baleeted
03:30<Ikaros>How about delteated?
03:31<internat>ill consider it
03:31-!-Latersbaby [] has joined #linode
03:31-!-Latersbaby is "Latersbaby" on #linode #debian
03:31<Zimsky>one of the bigger issues is american control of the internet
03:31-!-mode/#linode [+l 355] by ChanServ
03:32<Zimsky>and taking steps to equalise that control/administration amongst all nations
03:32<Ikaros>Cookies if you get the references I was making
03:33<Zimsky>10 of the 13 root name servers are operated by american organisations :(
03:33-!-Latersbaby [] has quit []
03:34<FluffyFoxeh>delet this
03:34<Zimsky>I'm glad the NTIA/ICANN contract ended in 2016
03:35-!-mode/#linode [+l 354] by ChanServ
03:36<Peng>Zimsky: It's not governments that want to make the Internet better than want to wrest American control, though.
03:36<Zimsky>Peng, how do you mean?
03:37<Zimsky>well, I get what you mean, but what's the relevance?
03:37<Peng>Zimsky: Does [random utopia] want the ITU to control the Internet? No. Does Russia? Yes.
03:37<FluffyFoxeh>the tech giants do much more damage to the internet than the US government
03:37<Peng>Better the devil you know taking down music piracy domains without due process than whatever-the-heck could happen, IMO.
03:37<Zimsky>russia is good
03:38<Zimsky>they wouldn't hurt anyone
03:38<FluffyFoxeh>unless they're gayt
03:38<Zimsky>FluffyFoxeh: true
03:38<Zimsky>you could argue both ways though, really
03:39<linbot>New news from forum: General Discussion • salon de massage sur lyon <>
03:40<Zimsky>the us government, legislatively, is clueless and inept when it comes to technical internet governance, which could result in anything from no changes to the current system to catastrophic fuck-ups
03:41<Zimsky>whereas organisations are more likely to have an agenda or goal of what they want to achieve
03:41<Zimsky>internet governance is complicated :(
03:42<Zimsky>last time I checked though, mitch mcconnell or whatever his name is, is not a network engineer (or even decent person, for that matter)
03:43<Zimsky>there was more to the point I was going to make but it's a grey area and I can't be bothered
03:46<arlen>!point Zimsky
03:46<linbot>arlen: Point given to zimsky. (5)
03:46<Zimsky>thanks arlen, it's been a while since I last ate
03:46<Zimsky>now I can afford meals
03:48<Zimsky>microsoft doesn't use ipv6 on their mail servers?
03:49<Ikaros>Of course not, my servers have always talked to theirs over IPv4
03:49<Ikaros>Geez, even GOOGLE'S ahead of them on that
03:50<Zimsky>google is almost always ahead when it comes to rolling out new stuff like that
03:50<FluffyFoxeh>you say "even google" like you'd not expect them to be on top of IPv6
03:50<Zimsky>though, ipv6 is hardly new
03:50<Ikaros>But SOME people lag behind
03:50<Zimsky>you'd expect microsoft to at least be up there though
03:50<Ikaros>Namely, a number of US-based ISPs
03:51<Zimsky>even yahoo has ipv6 on their main site
03:51<Ikaros>"Oh it's not necessary we have plenty of space left"
03:51<Zimsky> doesn't even have ipv6
03:51<Ikaros>Let's see if they can say that when they're FORCED to
03:51<Zimsky>have any semi-large ISPs even rolled out ipv6-only yet?
03:52<Ikaros>Not IPv6-only but some larger ones have at least rolled out transitional technologies
03:52<FluffyFoxeh>IPv6-only right now would be a terrible idea
03:52<Ikaros>Hell, even Charter/Time Warner (Spectrum) not only rolled out IPv6 in their markets...theirs has reverse DNS
03:52<Zimsky>I don't think we'll see anyone being forced to roll out v6 (in order to maintain their business reachability) until we see ISPs dropping native ipv4
03:52<Ikaros>Just like their v4s
03:53<Zimsky>that's rather neat
03:53<Zimsky>is it configurable though?
03:53<Ikaros>Though I have no idea how you manage to do rDNS for THAT many potential subscriber addresses
03:53<Zimsky>I don't get it
03:53<Zimsky>why would the number of potential addresses matter?
03:54<Ikaros>That's a LOT of addresses to configure forward and reverse hosts for
03:54<Ikaros>Even smaller pools assigned to them
03:54<Zimsky>you're not filling a bind zonefile or pdns database with each and every address though
03:54<Ikaros>Maybe that's why some don't do it yet
03:54<Ikaros>'cause it's not really necessitated
03:54<Ikaros>No you're not, and you're right
03:55<Zimsky>you just run an authoritative nameserver that constructs the necessary PTR/AAAA based on the query
03:55<Ikaros>But yeah. Spectrum does do rDNS for IPv6 for their customers, much in the same manner as the usual IPv4 reverse host
03:55<FluffyFoxeh>let's just start assigning the same address to multiple endpoints and send them both the packets
03:55<FluffyFoxeh>one of them will be the right one
03:55<Ikaros>Not 'configurable' really, it's just there
03:56<Zimsky>"hi I'd like the PTR for", and then it responds with "sure lad it's"
03:56<Zimsky>or something akin to that
03:56<Zimsky>it's a quick bit of code
03:56<Ikaros>If I see a DNS server that actually talks like that I'll use it :P
03:56<Ikaros>"sure lad"
03:56<Zimsky>you'd be a lunatic to actually fill a database with every PTR
03:56<Zimsky>even for ipv4
03:57<Ikaros>Heh, well my ISP doesn't even do IPv4 rDNS
03:57<Zimsky>just specify your ranges and only provide responses to those addresses (in arpa format)
03:57<Ikaros>They believe that's a privilege reserved for static customers
03:57<Zimsky>do you have to pay more to be static?
03:57<Zimsky>also static sucks
03:57<Zimsky>for residential stuff
03:57<Ikaros>But I'll tell you it mucks with my mailserver setup for obvious reasons
03:58<Zimsky>is this a residential connection?
03:58<Ikaros>My server: "Whoa wait a minute you don't have reverse DNS? WTF that's ghey *denied*"
03:58<Ikaros>US-based no less.
03:58<Zimsky>that seems unwise
03:58<FluffyFoxeh>I used to run my mail server at my house :p
03:58<FluffyFoxeh>now it's on my Linode
03:59<Ikaros>Nah I just chalk it up to their NOC's stupidity
03:59<Zimsky>sure, used to, when decent servers were a minimum of 20 usd/month
03:59<Ikaros>'cause from what I can see, the IPs in my range that DO have rDNS set...only have PTRs WITHOUT matching address records.
03:59<Ikaros>So that generates warnings in some mail servers 'cause it can't verify the match
03:59<Zimsky>but now in the wonderful age of fivers per month, just spin up a little slice of the 'li and you're golden
04:00<Ikaros>I mean in what world do the network people for my ISP live in that says you only need a PTR

04:03-!-mode/#linode [+l 355] by ChanServ
04:03<Ikaros>My mail server already blocks IPs as one of many measures I have taken to avoid spam relays, even going so far as to checking that *first* before yeah, that means when I try to talk to my own mail server it blocks me. I just use my tunnel to speak to it but it's a bit inconvenient.
04:03<Ikaros>I mean checking if it has rDNS, that is
04:04<arlen>I just use fastmail
04:05<Ikaros>Of course, I still think my ISP is full of twats that I could run the NOC with a hand tied behind my back better than they could...and no that's not me being full of myself, I mean it literally. >.>
04:05<Ikaros>but enough ranting from me, it's time for sleep
04:07<Zimsky>that doesn't necessarily mean that you could run it "well"
04:07-!-VladGh [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
04:07<Zimsky>just better than they could.
04:08-!-mode/#linode [+l 354] by ChanServ
04:08<Zimsky>so if you could quantify their ability to run it as a numerical value, and the most awful operation of it being 0, and the best being 100, and their ability to run it ranks as a 14, then you could be understood to only be able to run it to an ability that would be quantified as a 15 on such a scale
04:09<Zimsky>which, while upholding your statement that you could run it better than them, you're also, in reality, still running it rather poorly
04:10-!-Cromulent [] has joined #linode
04:10-!-Cromulent is "Cromulent" on #linode
04:11<Zimsky>but that's only one of many possibilities (the number of possibilities depending on the scale interval/step)
04:11<Zimsky>perhaps you could run it to the ability of a 100
04:11<Zimsky>something something statistics

14:11<pacian>I am unable to gain access to my linode server see error

14:11<pacian>the passphase is correct
14:11<pacian>what did I do wrong and how do I fix ?
14:12<linbot>LISH allows you to perform certain actions without having to log in to the Linode Manager. LISH's primary function is to allow you to access your Linode's console, even if networking is disabled.
14:12<dwfreed>^ use that to log into your Linode and look at your logs to see why it's erroring
14:21<Woet>pacian: the key you are using is not an authorized key on your server.
14:21<Woet>not for that user at least.
14:22<pacian>what can I do
14:22<Woet>read what dwfreed said.
14:23<pacian>how can I start over again, clearly I made a huge mistake
14:23<pacian>I can only access using root
14:23<Woet>thats all you need.
14:23<pacian>I do not know how to use LISH
14:23<Woet>then click the handy guide that the message contained.
14:24<pacian>and usning it does not actually tell me how to solve my ssh problem
14:24<Woet>it gets you access to your server.
14:24<Woet>from there you use the commands to debug and solve the issue.
14:24<pacian>I prefer to not use root and use anotehr login as suggested my Linode
14:24<Woet>then configure that
14:24<pacian>how can I purge the user and start again
14:25<dwfreed>by logging in via Lish and fixing it

14:41-!-branko_ is now known as branko
14:42<pacian>pretty large file this auth.log
14:42<Woet>thats why you tail it while you try again.
14:42<scotti>pacian: man tail
14:42<scotti>pacian: we're going to teach you Linux Systems Administration in here
14:42<scotti>after your #linode crash course
14:43<scotti>you can earn $100000+ per year
14:43<scotti>working in Silicone Valley
14:44<dwfreed>that's a different valley
14:44<scotti>dwfreed: that's where you make the big $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$
14:44<scotti>if you're a hot chick that is
14:44<dwfreed>yeah, let's not go there
14:45*scotti wants to visit some day
14:45<arlen>the internet?
14:45<ponas>that's also where you pay shitloads of $$$ just for some crap place to stay isn't it

14:47<ponas>+1 for less +F
14:48<ponas>or shift+F when inside less
14:48<Woet>scotti: you can have that honest opinion

14:54<scotti>he slumped for a bit

14:55<scotti>dwfreed: are you suggesting that systems administrators shouldn't adapt to changing times ?
14:55<dwfreed>there's nothing wrong with tail -f
14:55<scotti>that we should stick to our roots
15:00<arlen>sometimes yes
15:00<pacian>okays.. thank you for lesson in tail but I already used tail.. the problem is my public key mismatch

15:15<pacian>no passphase
15:16<pacian>I try to fix it by regenerating a new key this time without the passphase
15:16<dzho>and where did you generate this key?
15:17<pacian>on my local computer
15:17<dzho>and what did you do with the public key?
15:18<pacian>it resides in the authorize_keys
15:18<dzho>ok, we're getting warmer
15:18<dzho>what os is running on your local computer?
15:18<pacian>to be exact
15:19<dzho>incidentally, the file is authorized_keys with a 'd'
15:19<dzho>well, it should be
15:19<pacian>yes sorry
15:19<dzho>not sure if you made a typo in IRC or on your linode
15:19<dzho>and that is in /home/user/.ssh/ ?
15:19<pacian>just a second
15:20<pacian>oops--not there
15:20<dzho>for appropriate values of "user"
15:21<pacian>are the only files there
15:21<dzho>that should be on the local computer, what of the remote computer?
15:22<pacian>let me check that a second please
15:23<pacian>authorized_keys id_rsa known_hosts
15:23<pacian>these are the files on my local computer
15:24<dzho>you need to take the contents of localcomputer:.ssh/ and put them in remotecomputer:.ssh/authorized_keys
15:24<dzho>where .ssh/ stands for /home/localuser/.ssh/ and /home/remoteuser/.ssh/ respectively.
15:24<pacian>just a second while I do that
15:28<pacian>the last line you wrote, I do not understand
15:28<pacian>english is not primary laguage
15:28<dzho>you generated a key pair.
15:28<dzho>it has two parts: a public part (with .pub) and a private part
15:28<dzho>the private part needs to stay on your local computer
15:29<pacian>hold please
15:29<dzho>the public part you have to put in /home/remoteuser/.ssh/authorized_keys
15:29<dzho>where /home/remoteuser is the home directory on the user on the remote computer
15:29<dzho>it might be /root
15:29<dzho>it might be /home/pacian
15:30<dzho>are you using Ubuntu on the remote computer as well?
15:30<pacian>on the remote site there is no authorized_keys file
15:30<dzho>then your ssh keypair will be of no use to you.
15:30<dzho>you must put it there.
15:30<dzho>or use password authentication
15:31<pacian>yes I am
15:33<pacian>I am using pacian on both computers remote and local computer
15:33<pacian>can I not just start over...
15:33<pacian>this is taking longer than expect
15:34<pacian>hold on...let start again..
15:35<pacian>these are the files on the local computer
15:35<pacian>authorized_keys id_rsa known_hosts
15:35<pacian>these are the files on the remote computer
15:36<dzho>on the remote computer you *probably* want to 'mv authorized_keys'
15:37<dzho>did you copy those files to the remote computer, or generate them in place?
15:37<pacian>generated them in place
15:37<dzho>oh, then they are not of any use
15:38<dzho>Starting over doesn't help us if you don't understand what I'm saying anyway.
15:39<pacian>the instruction on linode sucks and I honestly tried to follwo the instructions as best as I could
15:39<dzho>what instructions?
15:41<dzho>this is the key line that seems not to have been done: scp ~/.ssh/ example_user@
15:42<pacian>that seems to be for the Mac OS
15:42<dzho>or I guess in your case ssh-copy-id example_user@
15:43<dzho>at the top of that section it says "This is done on your local computer, not your Linode"
15:43<dwfreed>the command is the same regardless of OS; OS X doesn't ship with ssh-copy-id, which is why it says to use scp instead
15:43<dwfreed>but the same scp would work on Linux for a local system too
15:43*dzho nods
15:44<dwfreed>(fun fact: ssh-copy-id is written in shell)
15:44*dzho has never used it
15:45<dzho>that's all a little too turnkey magic for me.
15:45<pacian> scp ~/.ssh/ example_user@ Permission denied (publickey). lost connection
15:46<pacian>I honestly think it best I start from scratch..
15:46<dzho>is your user really "example_user"?
15:46<dzho>I thought it was pacian
15:46<dwfreed>^ and you need to adjust your sshd_config to allow password logins again temporarily
15:46<pacian>right.. I am getting tired
15:46<dzho>that too probably
15:47<pacian>scp ~/.ssh/ pacian@ Permission denied (publickey). lost connection
15:48<dwfreed> undo step 2
15:48<pacian>on the local or remote side
15:48<dwfreed>on your Linode
15:48<dwfreed>and then do step 4
15:49*dzho nods
15:55<pacian>sshd_config change and ssh restarted next please
15:55<dwfreed>run the scp again
15:57<pacian>from the linode or the local
15:58<pacian>never mind figured it out .. ran from local per instructions and it ran successfully..
