09:53<chibuzo>Any explanation will be appreciated
09:54<dwfreed>FluffyFoxeh: how do you square mass?
09:55<koenig>chibuzo: You are in an IRC channel for Linode (, a provider of Virtual Private Servers.
09:55<koenig>People who are Linode customers hang out here along with some of the Linode staff.
09:55<FluffyFoxeh>dwfreed: I don't know. It's a ton of tons
09:55<chibuzo>koenig: Ok. Thanks
09:56<rsdehart>FluffyFoxeh: a ton of tons is a ton
09:56<chibuzo>I'm a big Linux fan. So, I joined
09:58<koenig>Among many things that Linode is good for, learning more about Linux is a big one.

10:01-!-chibuzo is "chibuzo" on #linode
10:05<chibuzo>I wanted to convert my system to Linux from Windows 8 and in the process, power went out of the system, while resetting the system. After that, I got an Arabic dialog box which refused to go out and the resetting process didn't run to completion. What should I do about this? Thanks
10:08<rsdehart>chibuzo: unfortunately, we have no idea what the dialog box said
10:09<chibuzo>It's in Arabic and I also don't understand it. Any clue?
10:09<rsdehart>because as I mentioned, we don't know what it said
10:09<koenig>chibuzo: More or less that's unlikely to be something anybody here can help you with, for a few reasons.
10:10<koenig>(1) People don't know what the dialog said. (2) This channel is more directly for support of Linode the company rather than Linux in general.

10:10-!-eyepulp is "eyepulp" on #linode
10:10<koenig>It's possible that people would be willing to have an on-the-side conversation with you about this, but I'd guess not very likely.
10:11<rsdehart>there's not really any actual information to go on
10:12<rsdehart>it'd be like calling your doctor, saying "It hurts", and hoping for a diagnosis
10:12<nate>screen shot the error, take it to a channel or website with arabic speakers, voila. Also considering one doesn't really "convert" completely different core kernel platforms, I'm not sure I understand why the simple solution isn't simply restarting the linux reinstall

10:59<rsdehart>"no idea"
11:00<FluffyFoxeh>well it's in Arabic and I don't understand it
11:00<Peng_>Everything hurts once you're around 30, eh?
11:16<koenig>People sometimes have a difficult time understanding how to ask questions the right way.
11:17<koenig>Which turns out to be tough if you don't even know how to communicate what you're stuck on.

13:15<koenig>That's the old school IRC experience right there. :)
13:16<koenig>Oh, that was actually the central Matrix bridge. A bunch of people just parted on Freenode too.

13:29<koenig>I keep thinking that if they can get Matrix's rough edges sanded down, it'll be a pretty good system.
13:29<koenig>It sure seems non-trivial to get there, though.

22:57<manikk>any Linode staffs here?

22:58<manikk>ok fine
22:59<manikk>Are there services provided by Linode like security audits and general maintainence at a given intervals?
22:59<millisa>Not really. They have a managed service product, but it's more a break-fix from my understanding.
22:59<virtual>and install?
23:00<millisa>They have a professional services group that probably would do anything for the right price; you'd have to get a quote from them though
23:01<manikk>ok fine
23:01<manikk>just evaluating Linode
23:01<manikk>we have some servers running on DigitalOcean
23:01<millisa>the service offering is very similar
23:02<manikk>ok cool
23:03<millisa>They have this thing - (there's a 'Why linode' drop down at the top that has some interesting links). The support experience bit is good. If you want the marketing
23:04<millisa>You should definitely check out the guide (there's a promo up at the top and it looks like they've recently bumped how much they give to try things)
23:04<virtual>well, and the experience of many in this chat room :)
23:05<virtual>they should offer a long service reward for customers with single 10 year old linodes.
23:05<virtual>exept, damn, those ones moved around a bit.
