00:48<MJCS>For the past few days I have been getting higher than usual ping to my teamspeak server as well as some fun bit of packet loss. I am not sure if it on Linodes end or on my stupid ISPs. Can someone take a look at this paste and let me know? https://vomitb.in/shCegcBYi6

00:49<Manoj>Hello
00:50<Woet>MJCS: did you try a different IP in a similar location not hosted by Linode?
00:51<MJCS>Do you have any up in Northern California that I can ping
00:51<Manoj>No
00:52-!-Manoj [~oftc-webi@103.85.207.217] has quit []
00:52<Woet>i'm sure AWS and DO do
00:52<Woet>see what i did there?
00:52<Woet>hehehe.
00:52-!-mode/#linode [+l 341] by ChanServ
00:53<MJCS>yeah
00:53<MJCS>hehe
00:53<MJCS>problem is all of the AWS ips I can find dont have the ping port open
00:55<Woet>if only they had a massive list of test IPs that comes up when you google "aws test ips"
00:59<MJCS>No packet loss to 13.52.0.2 in NoCal
00:59<MJCS>*NorCal
00:59<Woet>run a long MTR to both at the same time
00:59<Woet>also, theres no packet loss on your paste either
01:00<MJCS>There is from home to linode at 173.230.159.1
01:00<Woet>173.230.159.1 is not your linode.
01:00<MJCS>I know
01:00<MJCS>its just before it
01:00<Woet>a.lns3.mjcsstudios.net is your linode
01:00<Woet>theres no packet loss.
01:00<Woet>you should not attempt to read MTR reports if you're not sure what they mean
01:00<Woet>there will always be packet loss to the hops in between

01:00-!-murty is "OFTC WebIRC Client" on #linode
01:00<Woet>they are routers
01:01<Woet>they have more important things to do than reply to ICMP
01:01-!-mode/#linode [+l 342] by ChanServ
01:01<Woet>it's only relevant when there's packet loss at the destination
01:01<MJCS>TeamSpeak is reporting 37ms ping with 13.17 packet loss. Normally I have 20-23ms ping and 0 packet loss
01:01<Woet>okay, so you'll have to run the MTR for a long time
01:01<MJCS>Sound is garbled
01:01<Woet>so it actually picks up on that packet loss
01:01<Woet>because your MTR doesn't show any
01:02<murty>Heyo! Curious about how to get some account support :) Apologies if this is the wrong place!
01:02<MJCS>OK now the MTR shows 18% packet loss at my linode.
01:02<Woet>MJCS: show the output of both MTRs
01:02<Woet>murty: this is a community channel
01:02<@sjacobs>murty: if it is specific to your account, it would be best to open a support ticket.
01:02<Woet>murty: official support includes tickets / email / phone

01:11<Woet>it also shows sudden loss to "atlantis.mjcs.local" in comparison to the first one

01:24<Woet>[14:10:35] <Woet> and wheres the AWS one?
01:24<MJCS>working on it
01:24<Woet>you need to have them running side by side
01:25<Woet>running them after each other is pointless
01:26<MJCS>running them
01:29<MJCS>https://vomitb.in/Xk52EM2KN6 side by side
01:30<Woet>now you can open a ticket with that and they can investigate
01:30<Woet>seems like you have a bad neighbor or something
01:30<Woet>i recommend keeping both MTRs running for a while (like 1+ hour)

01:53<Castro>ok then if i follow the guide, everything will work fine right?
01:54<Castro>and it won't affect my existing running system right?

02:14<hms>i am looking to setup a server
02:14<millisa>Sounds good to me
02:14<Woet>congrats
02:14<hms>have bought ypur basic configuration
02:15<Woet>Sounds good to me
02:15<hms>how tought is it to install wamp and cpanel
02:15<millisa>!cpanel
02:15<linbot>Install cPanel on CentOS: https://www.linode.com/docs/websites/cms/cpanel-on-centos Linode does not sell cPanel licenses, but it's provided free to Linode Managed customers: https://www.linode.com/managed Or try a free panel like Webmin: https://www.linode.com/docs/websites/cms/webmin-control-panel Or just use the command line: https://www.linode.com/docs/platform/linode-beginners-guide/
02:15<Woet>its very tough to install wamp
02:15<Woet>seeing as it runs on Windows
02:16<dcraig>you can totally run windows on linode
02:16<dcraig>don't let woet trick you
02:16<Woet>i think thats a bannable offense
02:16<Woet>ops?
02:17<hms>do i need to purchase whm
02:17<millisa>If you want to do a LAMP setup without cpanel, there are lots of guides here: https://linode.com/docs/web-servers/lamp/ . There's also some LEMP guides https://linode.com/docs/web-servers/lemp/
02:17<hms>i am new to this
02:17<Woet>hms: you don't need to, no
02:17<Woet>hms: wouldn't it have been a good idea to look into this before buying?
02:18<dcraig>nah
02:18<dcraig>linodes are such a great value
02:18<dcraig>get it now and then explore

02:19<hms>have you heard if a thing like this
02:19<millisa>sounds like an odd way to go about it
02:19<Woet>nope
02:20<dcraig>you can change file permissions on linodes :D
02:20<hms>it only gives a read only permission execpt to the cache dir
02:20<hms>any ways let me try to install it my self and see
02:21<hms>will keep troubling you :-)

02:32<mmcer>hello.
02:32<millisa>hi
02:32<mmcer>does linode support BBR?
02:33<millisa>broken beyond repair?
02:33<@sjacobs>as long as your kernel supports it. it isn't enabled on the Linode kernel, but it is easy to switch to your distro's kernel and enable it.
02:34<mmcer>i use linux 4.9.56-x86_64-linode87
02:34<@sjacobs>https://linode.com/docs/tools-reference/custom-kernels-distros/run-a-distribution-supplied-kernel/
02:35<@sjacobs>once you switch, you should be able to use any guide you find for your distribution to enable it.
02:35<mmcer>yes, i know we can choose GRUB2
02:36<mmcer>but does this feature can build-in like linux 4.9.56-x86_64-linode87
02:36<mmcer>the string text "linux 4.9.56-x86_64-linode87" looks like more official
02:37<@sjacobs>it's possible, but the distro kernel is going to be easier.
02:38-!-Shentino [~Shentino@68-186-69-103.dhcp.knwc.wa.charter.com] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
02:38<@sjacobs>i'm sure your distribution's kernel is quite official.
02:38<mmcer>i know linode maintain its own kernel
02:39<mmcer>that is the reason why i want to ask linode add this good feature into kernel.

02:43<@sjacobs>what features do you need? you can always see what the linode kernel was build with using `zcat /proc/config.gz`
02:44<@sjacobs>fwiw, i boot all my linodes grub2 with their distro kernel. as new releases for distributions come out, it is going to be the default.
02:44<Woet>sjacobs: can you get me some mates rates?
02:44<Woet>i wont tell anyone
02:45<@sjacobs>no.
02:45<mmcer>can someone tell me the difference about GRUB2 and linux 4.9xxxxxx
02:45<Woet>wow
02:45<Woet>thats why i prefer the ops starting with J
02:45<Woet>they're much nicer
02:45<@sjacobs>that's why we hire more of them.
02:45<Woet>you're a second tier J
02:45<mmcer>?????
02:45<Woet>mmcer: this is a community channel
02:46<Woet>mmcer: we're not here just to answer your questions
02:46<@sjacobs>mmcer: that would depend what distribution you are running. (you should upgrade 4.9 anyway)
02:46<@sjacobs>https://blog.linode.com/2018/01/03/cpu-vulnerabilities-meltdown-spectre/
02:46<@sjacobs>^ you should reboot into latest if you are using the linode kernel.
02:47<mmcer>sorry, i mis-understanding this is linode official feedback channel.
02:47<Woet>its not
02:47<Woet>its just a chat channel
02:47<Woet>that happens to be mostly about linode
02:49<mmcer>thanks a lot, i already upgrade my node to the latest version.

02:53<@sjacobs>i'm very much looking forward to distro kernels by default.
02:54<millisa>i'm looking forward to not having the chili's baby back ribs song stuck in my head because I had to look up 'bbr'
02:54<FluffyFoxeh>sjacobs: is that a thing that's going to be happening?
02:55<@sjacobs>FluffyFoxeh: it's already the case for ubuntu 17.10 and fedora 27.
02:56<FluffyFoxeh>I see
02:56<@sjacobs>it's being changed per distro when an image for a new major version is released.
03:03<FluffyFoxeh>So is Linode eventually going to stop providing kernels then?

03:38<hawk>sjacobs: The microcode itself is available directly from Intel? But I guess that approach is not desirable for whatever reason?
03:40*grawity greps `lscpu` for PCID
03:40<grawity>good, at least that's present
03:40<Ikaros>Speaking of, not sure how I'd do microcode on my personal PC tbh. OEM does not look to offer it nor will they it seems.
03:41<hawk>Ikaros: https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/27337/Linux-Processor-Microcode-Data-File is there, if you want it.
03:44<Ikaros>Hm

03:47<@sjacobs>looks like i'll be using that download link to patch my home computer tomorrow, though.
03:47-!-mode/#linode [+l 339] by ChanServ
03:47<hawk>sjacobs: I just noted that as the article says the status is that you are waiting on microcode updates.
03:48<hawk>I don't know if that means someone just doesn't know or if there is an actual reason to wait.
03:49<@sjacobs>like i said, i'm not sure about the details. i'm not involved in any of the planning/patching.
03:51<Ikaros>hawk, I'm assumimg that microcode download is the one with the microcode fixes for the exploits? The date kinda caught me off guard a bit.
03:51<hawk>I believe that is the right one, at least. It fits the timeline, I think?
03:52<Ikaros>Unfortunately, my personal PC runs Windows. So I'm probably SOL
03:52<@sjacobs>https://betanews.com/2018/01/08/microsoft-meltdown-spectre-patch-bricks-amd-pcs/
03:53<Ikaros>Of course it does. >.>
03:53<grawity>Ikaros: afaik, at least Meltdown can't be fixed via microcode anyway
03:56<Ikaros>grawity yeah I know. I have Microsoft's software patch for that installed already and their PowerShell script shows I'm protected. Unfortunately, that same script shows the Spectre protections, while installed, are disabled due to lack of hardware support.
03:57<Ikaros>Spectre though I believe was reported to be the more difficult to exploit than Meltdown, if I remember right
03:57<hawk>Ikaros: Apparently there is an additional update. Not sure of the direct intel link, but https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+archive/primary/+files/intel-microcode_3.20171215.1.tar.xz includes it

06:51<neo^>Did Ubuntu patch meltdown/spectre?
06:52-!-mode/#linode [+l 339] by ChanServ
06:52<dwfreed>no, they're leaving critical vulnerabilities unpatched
06:53<dwfreed>but unless you're using the distro kernel, it doesn't matter whether they've fixed it or not
06:54<neo^>Ok, but all other Ubuntu systems out there must be vulnerable. What is taking so long?
06:55<dwfreed>i was being sarcastic
06:55<@sjacobs>https://wiki.ubuntu.com/SecurityTeam/KnowledgeBase/SpectreAndMeltdown

07:00<@sjacobs>sorry.

07:00<Woet>as usual
07:00<@sjacobs>it is. my eyes jumped over it with all the 4's.
07:00<Woet>thats why I only trust the J folk
07:01<neo^>Debian developers were quick in patching their kernel. https://www.debian.org/security/2018/dsa-4078
07:04<Peng>> We also identified a regression for ancient userspaces using the vsyscall interface, for example chroot and containers using (e)glibc 2.13 and older, including those based on Debian 7 or RHEL/CentOS 6. This regression will be fixed in a later update.
07:04<Peng>Ouch
07:05<neo^>"The Rolling HWE kernel for Ubuntu 16.04 will go to 4.13 early, instead of also fixing 4.10 HWE kernel. "

07:06<@sjacobs>that seems odd.
07:07<Peng>Maybe they were already working on 4.13 and it's faster to backport the patches than do 4.14
07:07<Peng>Or they were informed weeks/months ago
07:08<neo^>Peng: After 4.10, it's 4.13 in 16.04's HWE stack: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/LTSEnablementStack
07:10<Peng>Ah
07:10<Peng>Makes sense
07:11<neo^>To be on safer side, users can keep their vulnerable Ubuntu systems shut down until fix is released, or consider migrating to Debian.

08:05<Kurt_>Hello, Is it possible to get a VPS in Japan Datacenter ? Is that something you can set when your register a VPS ?
08:07<troy>Kurt_: yes you can select the Tokyo DC when you deploy a new linode
08:07<@bmartin>Absolutely. https://www.linode.com/speedtest will allow you to test speeds. When you create your Linode you will choose which DC you would like to use.
08:07<Kurt_>Perfect !
08:09<Kurt_>The received IP address is dedicated to that VPS ? or is it shared ?
08:09<troy>Kurt_: it is dedicated
08:09<troy>you recieve both a ipv4 and ipv6 address
08:10<Kurt_>The thing is to use the VPS with an API, if the API detects multiple access from a IP address it gets banned, so I need to be sure to have a dedicated IP address and not a NAT address
08:11<troy>it is a routable public IP address not a NAT address
08:14<Kurt_>thank you for your prompt answer ( Ubuntu is available )
08:15<troy>no problem, yes ubuntu images are avalible

08:23<nate>All AWS services? I thought at the very least EC2 were dedicated addresses
08:25<troy>you get a dedicated public ip with ec2 but the instances themselves are allocated a private address space from your vpc, its like a 1:1 nat relationship

11:11<emerson>it's there on manager.linode.com

11:12<DrJ>I wont say the new cloud panel is bad, but I much much much much .....

11:13<armiller>Single page apps for the win!
11:13<emerson>armiller: off the top of my head, there's no way to tell which linode a /64 of IPv6 is being routed to
11:13<emerson>they show up on all the linodes
11:13<emerson>s/linodes/linodes network tab
11:14<johnz>also it should really implement loading animations or something because most of the time when i click something there's a 1 second lag before showing another screen
11:14<johnz>and then for a moment i'm not sure i clicked or that it's working at all
11:14<johnz>(1 second is actually generous though)

11:15<armiller>emerson: I'm pretty sure thats because you could route a IPv6 /64 to any Linode in the same DC
11:15<AlexMax>Got a question
11:15<armiller>So if I recall correctly it doesn't really "belong" to any one Linode as much as it belongs to your account
11:15<AlexMax>Let's say that I am using a 1024 Linode
11:15<AlexMax>and I'm running something that's CPU intensive
11:15<AlexMax>like, 50% or so
11:15-!-mode/#linode [+l 350] by ChanServ
11:16<AlexMax>What would happen if I got a 2048
11:16<AlexMax>do I get more CPU power?
11:16<armiller>No
11:16<dwfreed>that depends on how loaded the host is you end up on
11:16<johnz>no, it's still 1 cpu
11:16<grawity>I think you just get more cores of the same type
11:16<grawity>but both 1G and 2G only provide 1 core
11:16<Peng>You have one core either way. If there's high contention, the 2048 has a larger "fair share" of minimum CPU, though.
11:16<armiller>But thats because of the pricing tiers of the 1024 and 2048
11:17<Peng>If steal is negligible, it doesn't matter.
11:17<armiller>^ And hopefully steal is negligible
11:17<grawity>what does that number actually show
11:17<AlexMax>steal is about 1.0-3.0
11:18<johnz>also, even with 2 cores your software must be written to take advantage of them
11:18<AlexMax>Here's a sample
11:18<AlexMax>04:18:12 PM CPU %user %nice %system %iowait %steal %idle
11:18<AlexMax>04:18:13 PM all 6.25 0.00 29.17 0.00 1.04 63.54
11:18<Peng>johnz: Application eats one core and kernel eats other core. :D
11:19<armiller>Nom nom nom
11:19*Peng switches contexts
11:19<dwfreed>fwiw, the first output of iostat is not useful
11:20<dwfreed>because that one is average since boot
11:21<emerson>armiller: doesn't seem like it, although the new docs don't say either way
11:21<Peng>You can get a /64 routed to an IP in a /116 though :D
11:22<dwfreed>armiller: re routing, yes, you can, but you still need to know what address it's routed to
11:22<emerson>but i guess they fixed the other annoyance, which was creating a new DNS record would always have a TTL of 3600 regardless of what you specified
11:23<hawk>Indeed, the /64 (all of it) is routed to one address of your choosing. It would be a good idea to pick an address in the /116 pool if you want to be able to move it easily.

13:10<IanBattaglia>Hey there, I'm following the guide to install a lamp stack on Ubuntu 16.04, and I want to configure this server to run to a subdomain, but I had a question for configuring Virtual Hosts. Anyone have a minute to answer?
13:10<grawity>depends; how long will it take for you to ask the question?

13:11<IanBattaglia>Ha, fair enough. Not long.
13:11<@scrane> What's the question?
13:12<IanBattaglia>How should the "/var/www/html/example.com/public_html" structure be modified for a subdomain? Should I configure everything as spec and then jsut adjust the DNS settings, or what?
13:12<IanBattaglia>*just
13:13<grawity>the exact paths aren't important, but if you're going by that structure, just use "/var/www/html/sub.example.com/public_html"
13:13<grawity>as long as your web server's DocumentRoot matches the filesystem, it'll work
13:14<IanBattaglia>That's what I thought, thanks. I'll just replace the domain with the full subdomain path, and follow the guide accordingly.

13:44<IanBattaglia>Hm, I'm trying to test to see if I did it all correctly, and when I try and access "subdomain.mydomain.com"/phptest.php, the site doesn't load. I tried restarting Apache, it's running fine. Any ideas?
13:45<@scrane>Is the subdomain configured in the zone file?
13:46<@scrane>So we can get a better idea, can you let us know what the subdomain and domain is? That'll help us poke at it and see if we can point you in the right direction
13:46<millisa>the output of 'apachectl -S' might be useful
13:46<IanBattaglia>I'm not sure, I didn't do anything to the zone file honestly. Sorry for the noob questions.
13:47<IanBattaglia>The domain is monochromatic.co, and the subdomain is "console".
13:48<@scrane>Haha it's all good. We all have to learn somehow. So pretty much... I'm looking at your DNS information. For monochromatic.co I am getting... 4 different IP addresses for monochromatic.co

13:50<dwfreed>i'm... surprised that works at all
13:51<IanBattaglia>Right now it's a domain pointing to a squarespace site, and I'm trying to set up the console subdomain as a site I wrote, without disturbing the original domain.

16:08<Cromulent>IanBattaglia: when you ran mysql_secure_install did you tell it to reject weak passwords?
16:09<IanBattaglia>I can't remember, honestly. The password I'm trying to set is a random 20 character string, though.
16:09<millisa>what is the mysql error you are getting?
16:09<Cromulent>ah OK - that won't be the problem then
16:10<IanBattaglia>ERROR 1064 (42000)
16:10<dzho>are you entering the square brackets?
16:11<millisa>there's not an actual message to go with that error number?
16:11<dzho>also, if you've already created the database once, you don't create it again, do you?
16:11<IanBattaglia>No, sorry, I wasn't sure how to deliniate code here.
16:11<dzho>ok, just pays to check when things are unsettled
16:12<IanBattaglia>You're right. I've got a database, but I'm not sure if I set a user / pass correctly.
16:12<IanBattaglia>aside from root.
16:12<dzho>the intarwebs tell me those codes go with a syntax error

16:14<millisa>there usually is something more after the 'error 1064 (42000): '
16:17<IanBattaglia>You're right, it logs the password I was trying to set.
16:17<IanBattaglia>What should I be swapping in on this line of code from the doc? GRANT ALL ON webdata.* TO 'webuser' IDENTIFIED BY 'password';
16:17<IanBattaglia>I thought it was asking me to set a user and password there.
16:17<dzho>which you may be wise to redact, but if you're dedicated to the help getting, you'll try to reproduce with a bogus pw and paste the whole thing
16:18<dzho>do you actually have a database called webdata, a user called webuser?
16:18<IanBattaglia>It's just a random string, I'm happy to post it, it if helps.
16:18<IanBattaglia>I do have a database called webdata, but no user that name. Instead I put ian_battaglia.
16:19<millisa>i usually prefer giving a location in the grant. grant all on dbname.* to 'dbuser'@'somelocation/ip/%' identified by 'someawesomepassword';

17:29<md_5>my linode just got rebooted for "emergency security maintenance" with a support ticket opened 12 minutes ago and no email
17:30<Peng>...Huh.
17:30<nate>well the support ticket should have probably resulted in an email
17:30<md_5>its a weird support ticket
17:30<nate>sure your mail host didn't block it?
17:30<md_5>there is no message attached to it at all
17:31<md_5>normally the automated reboots have a message explaining the reboot
17:31<md_5>given only 12 minutes warning this better be something worse than meltdown/spectre
17:32<Peng>That's difficult to imagine.
17:32<Peng>Quick, reboot, a team of secret agents have a blow torch and are approaching the cage.
17:33<md_5>replied to the ticket, I shall grab the popcorn
17:34<Peng>I'm sorry, the popcorn machine was taken down for maintenance 12 minutes ago.
17:34<Peng>Would you like this stale package of airplane peanuts we found underneath it.
17:35<md_5>and yeah my email is definitely working, just got the echo email of my own reply
17:35<Peng>Ah, i didn't mean to just be snarky. I'm sorry about the surprise reboot. :(
17:35<md_5>no problem, I imagine its a bug in the email system due to the fact the ticket had 0 content
17:36<md_5>http://files.md-5.net/s/5xiRnnO.png thats the entire ticket
17:37<waltman>Is there a delay in receiving emails from linode? It took about 24 hours to get an email after I rebooted my linode a few days ago, and I saw someone else mention a delay as well.
17:38<Peng>I've never noticed a delay.
17:38<md_5>neither
17:38<Peng>I imagine there might be a delay in the mass announcement emails that go through a separate provider.
17:38<Peng>But ordinary emails? No.
17:38<@mcintosh>waltman: event notifications were backed up for a bit the other day
17:38<@mcintosh>just those though
17:38<Peng>Ah
17:38<Peng>Are you saying it was an eventful day
17:39<md_5>it was a spectre/meltdown reboot
17:39<md_5>with 12 minutes warning
17:39<md_5>ffsa
17:39<Peng>md_5: They confirmed it?
17:39<md_5>how is this acceptable
17:39<md_5>Peng http://files.md-5.net/s/PTGWDRV.png
17:40<waltman>I rebooted Sunday at 13:55, got the email notification Monday at 10:56.
17:40<waltman>mcintosh: Ah, OK.
17:40<md_5>waltman the linode event notifications are batched, although mine are more like 30 minute batchewd
17:40<md_5>there might be a user preference to change it I think
17:40<Peng>Ah.
17:40<waltman>I'm not complaining, just pointing it out as another point of info.
17:41<Peng>Yeah, I don't mean to say that they're instant, but they're always fast enough that they've arrived by teh next time I check my email. :P
17:41<waltman>21 hours seems on the long side
17:41<md_5>hmm nah dont see a setting, just on/off
17:41<waltman>Ordinarily they've arrived in a few minutes.
17:44<millisa>(I actually saw a 24+ hour delay on a few of my reboots since Friday)
17:45<millisa>(er just a delay on the notifications of 'recent activity')

17:49<md_5>http://files.md-5.net/s/CAAA7nH.png poor support guy, but terrible decision by linode
17:50<tanja84dk>Cromulent, last it wered almost a day late for me ( a few days ago )
17:51<Peng>md_5: I agree with your comment, more or less, but IMO 24-36 hours reboot notice would have been excessive. I figure, send an email last week that reboots are coming soon, and then email people the precise schedule with 12-24 hours notice.
17:51<Peng>Bikeshedding engaged!
17:52<md_5>well 12 hours is still 60x more notice than they gave
17:52<Peng>Yep
17:53<Cromulent>guess my linodes are going to be rebooted soon then
17:53<kashike>now just to wait until tokyo 2 gets its turn
17:53<tanja84dk>md_5, guess you are one of the "lucky" there is being patched already now
17:53<Peng>For comparison, Amazon emailed people about December 15 that reboots were coming, um, January 5. Then when it hit the news, they emailed on January 3(?) that they were being moved up to January 4(?) with like 6-12 hours notice.
17:54<millisa>md_5: I was stuck on the phone and may have missed it - did you say which DC your linode was in?
17:54<Peng>I mgiht be a bit off on that, but not the important part.
17:54<md_5>tanja84dk one linode down, > half a dozen to go
17:54<md_5>this was singapore
17:55<tanja84dk>md_5, I'm in london ( I think on three difference hosts ) and there hav been no reboot there of what I know and no tickets of it
17:55<Peng>tanja84dk: Maybe you're next. :P
17:56<tanja84dk>Peng, actually I would hope it were soon in a way, because I know not everything is booting up automaticly. So I have to be online when it is
17:57<md_5>lol good luck with that

18:00<md_5>>An issue affecting the physical host this Linode resides on has been detected.
18:00<Peng>That's not abnormal.

18:03<md_5>the papers were released like a week ago
18:04<dwfreed>md_5: having looked at your images, the first "response" was actually a ticket list update
18:05<dwfreed>the ticket has to be created before the first update goes into it, and you happened to see the ticket before the update

18:11<Peng>Also, it depends on luck. You can be the first person on the host booted, or the last.
18:12<dwfreed>there are a lot of things that go into host updates; some of those things are manual, to allow for human validation
18:12<Peng>And if rumor is true (it's not) it takes 5-30% longer to reboot than it did before. :D
18:12<dwfreed>and Peng is right about boot order

18:24<md_5>> I certainly can't disagree with you here. We would have liked to have more time to communicate the upcoming maintenance but due to various factors that was not possible for this round of upgrades. We sincerely apologize for the lack of notice and we hope that you accept that our biggest consideration in starting this maintenance on such short notice is the security of our customers servers.
18:26<dwfreed>honestly? perfectly acceptable response
18:27<md_5>what about my other 6 servers, and the tens of thousands awaiting reboots from other customers?
18:27<md_5>Why can they not send an email out right now, even saying as little as "your server will be rebooted unexpectedly in the coming days"
18:28<Peng>Or one 2 days ago saying it would probably be rebooted
18:29<Peng>Could be things were really uncertain until the last minute
18:29<dwfreed>there's stuff on the blog
