00:08<@pwoods>kelvin_: Hiya!
00:08<kelvin_>pls i want to urgently close this account.I have been having challenges with the firm for about 2 months on this issue and they keep billing me
00:09<kelvin_>i just need to close the account and the support dept is woefully inept at it,even after i sent messages to them last month
00:09<millisa>You can log in and do it yourself -
00:10<kelvin_>i have used the site but the password i saved is not working.i sent change password and it is yet to come into my mail box
00:10<@rgerke>kelvin_: was just going to post the link that millisa gave. It's a pretty quick process to close your account, and if you do need our assistance please feel free to open up a support ticket.
00:11<@rgerke>Or send an e-mail to if you can't log into your account to open a ticket
00:11<kelvin_>please i need to do this urgently due to time constrain.
00:11<@pwoods>kelvin_: If you contact Support with the last 6 digits of the account and the email on file, we can look into what email address the password reset would be sent to.
00:12<millisa>If you haven't already, you can also try recovering your username - (assuming you know the email address that's used)
00:12<kelvin_>MY EMAIL ACCT IS
00:12<millisa>this is a community channel, you'll want to keep private info out of it
00:14<kelvin_>i have been doing that for 2 months
00:14<kelvin_>i just need to close the account
00:14<@pwoods>kelvin_: do you have a ticket number you can share for me to look into?
00:15<@pwoods>kelvin_: thanks, taking a look now.

01:39<AugustusCaesar24>how do you see open ports?
01:41-!-AugustusCaesar24 [] has quit []
01:41<rawrus>depends on the operating system, most recent distributions come with `ss` rather than `netstat`. For new stuff on `ss` you can use `ss -tlnp` to list all bound tcp ports
01:41<rawrus>`netstat -plantu` will do the same for older distros

15:22<Cromulent>I want to build a landing page to test out if people are interested in signing up to a mailing list regarding a business idea I have - I'll probably use Mailchimp for the mailing list but the rest of the site will be a static HTML / CSS site. The thing is I want to be able to translate it from a static site to a fully working site if the idea turns out to be well received but I'm not sure what the best practices are for this?
15:22<Cromulent>well it'll be more than a landing page and more of a form plus additional information pages
15:22<Cromulent>at the end I want to use Vue.js on the front end and Flask on the backend
15:23<Cromulent>I'm thinking maybe if I used Flask right from the start I could have the advantage of using templates
