00:10<@_brian>Richard Myers: 11:50 PM: And another SILVER for Customer Service Department of the Year!
00:11<Ikaros>THAT, is well-deserved.
00:21<linbot>New news from community: Cannot send email using smtp on linode <>
00:24<Xion>I like how the bot doesn't know the difference between news and a question
00:32<FluffyFoxeh>It's an RSS feed. Everything is "news"
00:32<FluffyFoxeh>I don't know why it calls it "news" though

01:16<chesty>I could google, but what are the stevie awards? and what training program does linode have?

01:23<@_brian>from the wiki: The Stevie Awards are a set of hundreds of business awards given annually by the American Business Awards organization. They were created in 2002 to recognize accomplishments and contributions of companies and business people worldwide
01:26<@_brian>the training is regarding the onboarding process for new supportians, which is seriously impressive IMO. there is a very rigorous 6 week training followed by another ~4 of mentorship before new team members are even given the option to fly solo

01:32<chesty>I looked at the stevieaward website, it's too confusing, I couldn't find anything about the metal linode won.
01:34<chesty>cheers _brian, I didn't consider it was a training program for linode staff. I was thinking it was a generic program for customers and hadn't heard of it
01:38<Peng_>Linode blogged about it a few months ago!
01:38<Peng_>"a few"
01:39<@_brian>2005 was like last year iirc
01:39<Peng_>It was really surprising how Linode switched from UML to Xen and then to KVM in like six weeks
01:44<@_brian>a testament to the quality of the training tbh

22:12<zifnab>happy leap day!
22:13<Toba>we started leap day at my work with 2 different leap year bugs
22:13<Toba>fun day
22:13<zifnab>this linode is nearly unused now
22:13<zifnab>and for some reason backups fail 2-3 times a month and i get a ticket
22:14<Toba>i got a ticket for parking in a tow zone last night
22:14<Toba>I don't know how linode support found me, but they found me
22:14<zifnab>oh man, i've been getting fun "spam" tickets for a few days
22:15<Toba>you should stop spamming people then
22:15<zifnab>look at this beautiful spam message
22:16<Toba>i like how they give no geographical information whatsoever in the email
22:16<Toba>i bet the .doc has a macro virus in it
22:16<zifnab>the .doc also has some lovely vb macros
22:16<zifnab>i haven't bothered to look that hard
22:16<zifnab>i originally thought the first one was real
22:17<zifnab>and i have a linux machine that i can just spin up a docker container with open office or whatever
22:17<zifnab>"why not see how far this goes"
22:17<Toba>until it uses a kernel exploit
22:18<Toba>or spreads over the network in your local lan
22:18<Toba>i just upload em to virustotal and see what it says
22:18<Toba>i found a scammy new way of spreading viruses in my inbox lately
22:18<zifnab>oh that's a sane idea
22:18<Toba>a business taht will go nameless that i had emailed with
22:19<Toba>had their email breached clearly, eg their sent / received messages
22:19<Ikaros> such bad grammar. Who the heck is he fooling
22:19<Toba>and the scammer emailed "in reply" to my previous legit email
22:19<Toba>with a vague businessy thing
22:19<Toba>and used the sign-off that the business uses
22:19<Toba>but the from address was something obviously spammy
22:19<Toba>but the name on the email wasn't
22:19<Toba>and most people's fucking client doesn't even show the address by default or something
22:20<zifnab>oh man uploading that wa sfun
22:20<zifnab>windows defender no likey
22:20<Toba>so they would think it was a real reply from the business
22:20<Toba>it was sent from a random spammy looking mailserver, with a spammy from address
22:20<Toba>but it pretended to be my correspondent
22:20<Toba>it would fool a lot of people, but not me
22:20<Toba>so i wonder how many of their clients are fucked now
22:20<Ikaros>I'd not fall for that either.
22:20<Toba>because they fell for it
22:20<Toba>i always view headers first
22:20<Toba>unless i'm really sure it looks legit
22:21<Ikaros>Heh. Wonder if said mailserver is blacklisted
22:21<Toba>some people would, though
22:21<Toba>i didn't check on the mailservers let me see.. i kept them in my 'treasured scams and viruses' folder
22:21<zifnab>sometimes i'll set up some insane vm to run these things in
22:22<zifnab>like "hey here's a win7 vbox vm with 32 cores on the guest network, enjoy"
22:22<Toba>From: "Sales" <>
22:22<Toba>that email address, no part of it matches the "Sales" that would normally email me
22:22<Ikaros>No, that's not suspicious at all. Nope.
22:22*Ikaros rolls eyes
22:22<Toba>Received: from ( []) by (Postfix) with ESMTP id 00C203A13FA
22:23<Ikaros>Heh. Well, the first one's just a CNAME.
22:24<Ikaros>Other don't exist.
22:25<Ikaros>Man I was about ready to go on a rant about how they're using plaintext SMTP over a remote link too, lol. Probably internal so I won't go off that much on it.

22:50<Nthanhcong>Hi. I have a trouble when I try to login. I forgot the password, so I click on forgot password and I type my email correctly but I can't receive any email to change my password.
22:50<Nthanhcong>Can you help me
22:53-!-Nthanhcong [~oftc-webi@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
22:53<virtual>Nthanhcong: I think you are going to need proper Linode support staff's help - can you call them?
