10:16<Peng>There are some older #linode quotes on, but I see that the last approved quote is from June.............
10:16<cruxeternus>Well, the last approved quotes on are probably from before 2015 heh

10:52<@bbigger>ElroyJetson mind opening up a ticket and dropping your ticket number here?
11:01<@bbigger>ElroyJetson: Thanks, I'm looking into issues on our end now. In the meantime, could you try accessing your account using Classic Manager?
11:03<ElroyJetson>bbigger: it seems to work now. Thanks
11:03<ElroyJetson>### Now on to other problems/questions
11:03<@bbigger>haha, great to hear — I'll have an update to your ticket soon as well
11:03<ElroyJetson> wants me to create a TXT record with a TTL of 1 second but 5 minutes is the least in the DNS manager, correct
11:04<ElroyJetson>Here is the sslforfree dialogue -
11:05<Peng>ElroyJetson: The TTL doesn't matter that much.

13:15<Cromulent>does anyone have any hints for running an Ethereum node on Linode (NOT minining)? I need to have a couple of nodes running on the internet so I can execute my smart contracts on them
13:18<Cromulent>I'm currently trying to sync up a full node on my home computer for development - it seems that a fully synced node is less than 200GB
13:18<Cromulent>and won't require much CPU so was thinking I could run it using block storage

14:44<FluffyFoxeh>Something is weird here:
14:44<FluffyFoxeh>Is it just me or is the former redirecting somewhere else?
14:49<Peng> ?
14:49<FluffyFoxeh>yeah, that's it
14:49<FluffyFoxeh>did it get hacked? wtf
14:51<FluffyFoxeh>okay so apparently it's intentional, the main developer says "I think there are more important problems these days than XML processing"
14:51<FluffyFoxeh>so weird

15:47<Cromulent>dwfreed: ah yeah I guess you are right - I'm completely new to Ethereum
15:49<Cromulent>from my understanding it costs Ether to execute smart contracts and that each contract is limited to what it can do by how gas it costs
15:49<Cromulent>how much*

16:17<Cromulent>I mean I do have a static IP address on my home computer so I could theoretically host my own Ethereum node on one of my home computers
16:17<Cromulent>static IP address on my home ISP*

22:04-!-sam_ is "OFTC WebIRC Client" on #linode
22:04<sam_>i want to know that
22:04<sam_>how much monthly visits does the $5 plan handle
22:05<Toba>at least 4
22:05<Toba>That totally depends on what kind of software you are using and what your site is like, how big the files are etc.
22:05<sam_>i am using wordpress with basic lightweight landing pages
22:06<sam_>no big files no downlaods
22:06<Toba>It is too variable a thing for someone to answer with just that information, but it's probably a lot?
22:06<sam_>just somelanding pages
22:06<Toba>"not big", well, then "lots" is your answer
22:07<Toba>30 kbytes?
22:07<Toba>that's it?
22:07<sam_>30000 visitors
22:11<millisa>It's not really something we could give you a direct answer on. It depends on how much resources each one of those visits uses up.
22:12<Toba>even if I had built the site myself I could not answer that without testing and benchmarking and that's not the kind of work you do for free on irc.
22:12<millisa>Linode is an unmanaged vps provider; you'd get root access to a server you spinup with allocated resources according to which plan you pick. If you need more resources, you can resize the linode.
22:12<sam_>but their is a average limit
22:14<sam_>ok thanks
