10:28<FluffyFoxeh>working for Linode would be cool
10:28<FluffyFoxeh>Too bad I'm in Canada
10:30<FluffyFoxeh>well, I love Canada but there's no Linode here :p
10:38<nyancat>There's a Canada location coming sometime soon
10:41<@mcintosh>( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
10:46<FluffyFoxeh>land of the FluffyFoxehs
10:46<nyancat>Now when I say location I mean you can create a Linode in a Canadian (Toronto) DC
10:46<nyancat>I'm not sure if Linode will open an office here or not
10:47<nyancat>For the sake of not collecting GST I hope not
10:47<FluffyFoxeh>I think I pay tax for linodes already?
10:47<nyancat>If you're in Canada no
10:48<nyancat>unless there's some fucky tax thing in your province that i'm not aware of, but here I just get billed the cost of the linode
10:50<FluffyFoxeh>Ontario, and yeah I don't see tax on the invoice

11:20<waltman> says the latest 64-bit kernel is 5.0.1-x86_64-linode122. I just rebooted my linode and I'm still on 4.18.16-x86_64-linode118. What's up?
11:21<nate>Yeah but so is linode's salary compared to woet's skill list I imagine :P
11:21<waltman>That's not even listed as one of the available kernels.
11:21<nate>(pretty sure he's a multi-role kinda person similar to me)
11:23<@scrane>waltman: The latest 64-bit kernel on that page is listed as 4.18.16-x86_64-linode118. The 5.0.1-x86-64-linode122 kernel should be listed as an available kernel at the bottom of the 64-bit kernels list in your LInode's configuration profile, but it is not at this time considered our latest 'stable' kernel. It's still being tested, I believe.
11:24<waltman>Oh, I see. I misread the info on that page. Thanks!
11:24<@scrane>NP! Glad I could help

16:22<BD>hey everyone
16:24<BD>is linode the best for the price or do you guys know anything better?
16:24<millisa>I think they are.
16:25<BD>why are people running heroku and amazon instances i really dont get them
16:25<millisa>One of their competitors with similar pricing and system sizes is Digital Ocean. They have a few other features Linode doesn't have, but I like how some of Linode's features work more (backups for instance)
16:25<BD>when you can have your own server for the same price
16:26-!-ntox [~textual@] has quit [Quit: My MacBook has gone to sleep. ZZZzzz…]
16:26<BD>I've never needed any backups in the past so I think I cannot appreciate it enough
16:26<millisa>There's often other features those folks may want to take advantage of - database instances, other integrated services
16:27<millisa>The other bit I like about Linode is they are pretty aggressive on keeping their pricing competitive. Their often the first to either drop prices or increase resources you get for the same price.
16:27<millisa>Er, they're.... I should just stop typing today. Can't even grammar goodly.
16:27<BD>I need a REDIS server but I think redis providers are charging too much just because they are "only" providing REDIS.
16:28<BD>I can host my redis with almost %10 off the price in linode as far as I can tell
16:28<millisa>Roll your own -
16:28<BD>Am I approaching this in the wrong way?
16:28<BD>Ah great haha
16:28<millisa>As long as you are comfy managing the server, the backups, recovery when things go wrong, go for it.
16:29<BD>So what PaaS's are really commercializing is convenience in managing your server?
16:29<millisa>Take a look at the getting started guide ( ) and see if it looks like your sort of thing
16:29<BD>Because PaaS's looks like they are doing everything I could do but for like triple the price
16:31<millisa>The assumption is they have folks ready 24x7 to deal with updates, incidents, and that sort of thing. Not taking the 3am call can be valuable
16:32<millisa>For a developer type that just needs the service available and doesn't want to actually manage the service - there's value to them too
16:34<BD>I love 3am calls they are easier to charge higher lol but it's my first time rolling my own project out to public I'm now lost if I should pick a PaaS or a server I can manage myself
16:35<BD>A server I can manage myself feels free if you know what I mean
16:35<BD>But a PaaS seems like they should know A LOT more than I do if they charge that much
16:35<millisa>Well, linode's bill by the hour. You can try it out and see what you can do. At worst you lose a few dollars finding out if you are capable
16:36<BD>Do you work for linode or are you just telling this lol
16:36<millisa>Just another customer.

16:38<BD>Thanks for all the advice you've given
16:38<millisa>sure thing
16:39<BD>You hang around here giving advice to newbies? lol
16:41<millisa>I'd say I hang around here more to talk about linode stuff. When there's announcements or incidents, it's often talked about here.
16:44<BD>Their newest release, dedicated CPU instances look reaaaaallly attractive
16:45<@mcintosh>> is linode the best for the price?
16:46<linbot>Users with ops are employees of Linode, and know what they're talking about. The rest of us are the ever-so-helpful(?) community. Official Linode contact information:
16:46<@mcintosh>(full disclosure :p)

20:02<shentino>two questions
20:03<shentino>Does a linode host subscribe to guest discards (block devices) in such a way that they can clean up or deallocate storage being used to store a guest's volumes etc?
20:03<shentino>guest discards, and host interprets by deallocating the associated storage (and possibly issuing discards of its own to the physical ssd)
20:04<shentino>and question 2
20:04<shentino>if not, could it in the future? It's an optimization opportunity. Letting the host free up space occupied by volume data the guest says to drop
20:06<shentino> could cause a risk of getting caught in an overcommit situation though
21:23<@mtjones>Hi shentino! For Block Storage and for a Linode's disks the space is reserved until the disk is resized or removed or the Volume is deleted.
