00:29<nate>Didn't atlanta have like a battery bank fire or something ages ago that impacted linode?
00:31*Peng_ sprains face scowling
00:31<Peng_>Atlanta's had a million outages that impacted Linode, but they never said any involved anything that dramatic.
00:31<Peng_>You're not thinking of The Planet's transformer(?) explosion, are you? (Which didn't affect Linode.)
00:34<nate>nah, this was like yearrrs ago, pretty sure there was some sorta UPS bank fire or something at one of the few locations at the time, thought it was atlanta
00:35<Peng_>Well, under the circumstances, it would almost have to be Atlanta or Fremont 1. The other data centers aren't that unlucky. :D
00:36<Peng_>Well, I'm not disagreeing with you, but I don't remember that. Hm.
00:37<nate>I thought it was a linode relative event but it might notta been
00:37<nate>maybe I'll try to search through my logs for the word "Fire" in here lol
00:40<Peng_>Heh
00:41<Peng_>Back in May, Toronto had a network outage because the fiber caught on fire. But that was a safe distance from the data center. :D
01:04<FluffyFoxeh>> * Peng_ sprains face scowling
01:04<FluffyFoxeh>have a cuppa tea and relax ^^
01:05<Peng_>I was actually drinking tea when I wrote that :D
01:07<FluffyFoxeh>:D
01:14<FluffyFoxeh>remember when one of the locations was getting knocked down particularly hard by DoS attacks m
01:15<FluffyFoxeh>They were all getting hit but one of them was most severely affected
01:15<FluffyFoxeh>2016 ish maybe?
01:23<Peng_>The Christmas DDoS! D:
01:23<Peng_>Atlanta got it worst and London got it second-worst.
01:24<Peng_>I imagine Dallas was the main target, but it weathered it well.

03:09<chandu>Hello
03:10<rsdehart>hi chandu
03:10<rsdehart>welcome to community chat
03:18<chandu>Thanks
03:18<chandu>I have quick question but not sure is this right forum to ask.
03:18<rsdehart>!ask
03:18<linbot>If you have a question, feel free to just ask it -- someone's always willing to help. If you don't get a response right away, be patient! You may want to read http://alexfornuto.com/how-to-ask-for-help-on-irc/
03:18<rsdehart>:)
03:19<rsdehart>if it isn't the right place, maybe someone can point you in the right direction
03:20<chandu>Currently we are using AWS, and we are happy with the service except pricing part. I heard about Linode and saw the straight forward pricing & plans. So my question the pricing will apply what ever listed in the website (or) is this again like AWS charges like per instance, per usage,...etc etc?
03:20<rsdehart>no, what you see is what you pay
03:20<rsdehart>no games
03:21<rsdehart>usage is billed hourly up to the cap shown per month
03:21<rsdehart>so if you use all month you end up paying the listed monthly cost
03:21<rsdehart>if you use a portion of the month, you'll pay the hourly. The monthly cap is reached somewhere near the end of the month anyway
03:24<chandu>cool this is what I needed, so does not matter how many hours I am using....All I want is I select the plan and pay fixed pricing so that it will be easy for me...And in AWS - every month I pay different amount and we are confused totally
03:26<chandu>so is there any hours limitation per plan/pricing? Let's say I select "4 GB RAM2 CPU Cores80 GB SSD4 TB Transfer" for $30/month. Will I have any limitation on #hours usgae per month?
03:26<grawity>no, that $30 is for running it 24/7 the whole month
03:27<rsdehart>thanks grawity
03:27<grawity>although if it's like mining foocoin at 100% CPU through the whole month, they might not be happy about that
03:27<chandu>cool, whether I run it or not running it - I will pay $30/month based on my plan - this is what I need so that no confusion on pricing
03:27<rsdehart>it's for as long as the instance exists yeah
03:29<chandu>and S3 storage also same thing right - there are no separate costs like for download, upload, view, store, archive like AWS?
03:30<grawity>the "object storage" service?
03:30<chandu>yes
03:30<grawity>appears to be the same, just a fixed monthly price based on size
03:31<grawity>well, I'm looking at the "pricing" part of https://www.linode.com/products/object-storage/ anyway
03:32<chandu>one last question - any idea on setting rules in object storage? Like I want to set the rule like - auto delete files/folders every 24 or 48 hours and send them to archive folder incase if I need it..
03:34<grawity>I'm going to guess "not yet" since it's a relatively new service, but maybe wait for staff for that one

04:05<Chandu>Thanks grawity
04:08<Chandu>is there any platform for linode experts where I can take some help by paying? I need this service for migration and continuous support
04:09<rsdehart>!managed
04:09<linbot>https://www.linode.com/managed
04:10<Chandu>nice..it's going to be ticket based help (or) phone/webex help whenever we need help?
04:13<rsdehart>I don't know. I've never used it
04:13<rsdehart>ticket based help is available with unmanaged
04:15<Chandu>got you
04:16<Chandu>what is the difference between Block Storage Vs Object Storage? I know about object storage and I think this one something like S3 storage in AWS...but what is block storage..and plan pricing says $1/month for 10GiB
04:17<Chandu>sorry for my basic questions but I am new so trying to find out and clarify before we migrate to linode
04:26<grawity>Block Storage is an additional disk that you can attach directly to a VM
04:26<grawity>Object Storage is, well, S3-like thing

09:21<sp>hey guys, unable to get a DHCP offer, and therefore no ipv4 address... any tips?
09:21<grawity>can you reach the gateway if you configure the address statically?
09:21<sp>syslog after 'dhcpclient eth0': dhclient: No DHCPOFFERS received.
09:22<grawity>tbh I don't...remember whether Linode had DHCP at all
09:22<sp>will try that, thanks
09:22<grawity>I guess it did
09:22<grawity>but in any case, manual configuration would be a good test
09:22<grawity>does the same server have IPv6 available?
09:31<sp>manually set gateway and DHCP server, it worked this time
09:31<sp>thanks for the hand holding friends :)

17:31<millisa>bleh to rolling out this kinda change in the last 2 weeks of the year to go into effect in only a few weeks :(
17:38<chesty>"You will immediately notify us in the event your use of any Service is for a non-business purpose; and " why?
17:39<nate>yeah that seems like really poor wording lol
17:40<millisa>"Resale Prohibited. Covered Users are prohibited from selling or reselling any Service unless you, on behalf of yourself and all Covered Users, consent to the appropriate reseller SUP or SPA without exception. " i'm not sure how I deal with that
17:42<nate>When exactly are these new terms supposed to go into effect?
17:42<millisa>it says 1/1 at the top
17:42<nate>I technically haven't even agreed to new terms in like two years, I just keep skipping them in the classic panel >.>
17:43<Peng_>nate: Same!
17:44<chesty>not a lawyer, but I think it says by using a service you agree to the tos
17:44<millisa>the bit in bold at the top claims that anyways
17:48<nate>chesty: Yeah but there's been a lot of cases in the US where it simply saying that doesn't apply, which is generally why most services explicitly make you click an "I agree" or such
17:49<chesty>how about this, when you created the account you agreed to a tos that said you agreed the tos could be updated?
17:49<chesty>(again, not a lawyer, I have no idea)
17:52<nate>That one I'm not sure of lol, I don't think I've ever heard of a case like that. But one could argue that's common sense and that sure it could be updated but we still wouldn't have to explicitly agree :P
17:53<nate>I think those non-business and reselling clauses are probably gonna cause a lot of issues (since like all but one of my linodes are personal use for random stuff)
17:54<nuevu>chesty: Which document and section has that non-business clause?
17:54<millisa>10.2 in the msa
17:55<nuevu>Thanks!
17:55<chesty>it's https://www.linode.com/legal-msa/ what's a master service? is there another tos for non-business users?
17:57<millisa>section 8 makes me nervous too :(
17:58-!-anomie [~anomie@00018802.user.oftc.net] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
17:59<chesty>I guess master services agreement means it's the main agreement and there are other sub agreements that may be applicable
17:59<millisa>that's generally the idea. more a parent/child relationship
17:59<chesty>clinger loves section 8
17:59<@mcintosh>millisa: ooc what about section 8 makes you nervous?

18:32<millisa>section 9 of aup is awkward (extra space/indention of the bold bit, and bullet 2 needs editing; i'm not sure what word is extra in there; 'including' maybe?)
18:33<chesty>"You consent to resolve all Disputes arising from or related to the Services in accordance to the Terms of Service and in your individual capacity; " I wish I knew what "in your individual capacity" means here. consent is interesting too, apparently the legal definition is an agreement between two people to engage in sexual activity.
18:34<millisa>opposed to your official capacity
18:34<wraeth>I think it's code for "no class actions".
18:37<chesty>it sounds like a business can't resolve a dispute also a lawyer can't represent you, not saying that's what it means, just saying that's what it sounds like it means to me.

19:05<FluffyFoxeh>All of my use of Linoe is non-commercial
19:06<FluffyFoxeh>Linode*
19:08<FluffyFoxeh>Why does it matter?
19:16<millisa>maybe something to do with how they have to respond when a gdpr violation is reported? who is/isnt applicable?
19:18<pfu>FluffyFox, good evening from Philadelphia!
19:21<pfu>Thanks very much for your question. The clause you pointed out helps us with our current and future regulatory compliance needs, some of which request distinction between business and non-business uses.
19:22-!-mode/#linode [+o pfu] by jackley
19:23<millisa>To comply with that requirement, folks are going to need a (simple) way to do that notification and probably a way to mark it by service or account wide
19:26<Peng_>Anarchy today!
19:27<FluffyFoxeh>Ah, I see
19:29<FluffyFoxeh>I'm curious, what is an example of something that requires that distinction?
19:29<millisa>"The following applies to this Linode (check all that apply): [ ] Business use [ ] Non Business use [x] Steve Buscemi use [x] Cat videos"
19:38<@pfu>There are lots of examples, spanning from data localization to taxes, customer-side insurance to Linode legal compliance

20:08<FluffyFoxeh>I wonder what specific parts of those things distinguishes between a "business" and a non-"business" use. Though I have only peripheral knowledge of the law, I'm not aware of that distinction being commonly defined or recognized.
20:09<FluffyFoxeh>There are special provisions for non-profit corporations, "non-business use" doesn't sound like it refers to that (or they would have used the term non-profit)
20:13<FluffyFoxeh>If Linode wants to be informed of the nature of one's use of the services, that sounds harmless enough, so whatever. But I don't understand why.
20:15<FluffyFoxeh>And I would be interested to know if (and how) my declaration would affect my interactions and relationship with Linode.
