13:38-!-cjdavis is "OFTC WebIRC Client" on #linode
13:38<cjdavis>What's the best way to submit a website takedown request to linode?
13:38<@_brian>right here:
13:39<@_brian>np :)
13:39-!-Ikaros [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
13:41<@_brian>cjdavis when creating your submission, depending on your reason for requesting the takedown, it can be helpful to cite whatever piece of our AUP the content violates
13:43<cjdavis>A website owned by us (we are authoritative for the domain) is being hosted on a linode IP address without our permission/approval and is serving copyrighted ebook content for free
13:44<millisa>What's stopping you from pointing the domain elsewhere?
13:48<@pwoods>cjdavis: while millisa has an excellent point in that the nameservers can be changed at the registrar level to point to a different hosting provider, the best way for us to take action on our customer is to submit a report through our Abuse Portal:
13:50-!-Ikaros [] has joined #linode
13:50-!-Ikaros is "Ikaros" on #linode
13:50<cjdavis>Good point. One of the problems is that we're unable to locate the person/persons who originally set up the site and linode account.
13:51<cjdavis>So, no visibility into the account and/or how it was/is configured
13:52<@pwoods>cjdavis: if there's a Linode account, then there is more likely a credit card that is being charged. Whomever owns that card is the owner in our eyes
13:53<cjdavis>Would a legal request override that ownership?
14:10<@pwoods>cjdavis: we would work with the customer through a Support ticket for anything reported through our Abuse portal.
14:12<cjdavis>We do not have the billing information
14:13<@pwoods>cjdavis: would you mind sharing the URL here? We can also do a private message if you prefer.
14:13<cjdavis>Private message would be preferred
14:16<cjdavis>@pwoods Pls send me a private message
14:26-!-sulaiman [~oftc-webi@] has joined #linode
14:26-!-sulaiman is "OFTC WebIRC Client" on #linode
14:26<sulaiman>Anyone here?
14:26<@pwoods>Hi sulaiman
14:27-!-Marz [~oftc-webi@] has joined #linode
14:27-!-Marz is "OFTC WebIRC Client" on #linode
14:27<@pwoods>Hello Marz!
14:27<sulaiman>Please if anyone could help me
14:27<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
14:27<@pwoods>Possibly - just remember that this is an open forum.
14:27<@pwoods>Please be mindful of sharing personal information.
14:28<Marz>Is the ddos service available in the shared services of linode?
14:28<sulaiman>I used linode servers from CloudWays. Then I copied my wordpress stie directly to linode. I compared the response time for ajax calls for the same exact website that is hosted on CloudWays linode and the one hosted on Linode directly. I noticed that it is faster on Cloudways
14:29<sulaiman>How is that happen?
14:29<sulaiman>How I can get the same results if I would like to host my site directly with Linode
14:34-!-Zajt [] has joined #linode
14:34-!-Zajt is "OFTC WebIRC Client" on #linode
14:35<Zajt>I am trying to run: apt-get update on my VPS, but get this - I don't think I've had any problems before with it so what may be wrong now?
14:35<millisa>does apt-get -o Acquire::ForceIPv4=true update work?
14:36<Zajt>Nope it does not
14:37-!-sulaiman [~oftc-webi@] has quit [Quit: Page closed]
14:39<millisa>hm. 19.10 EOL maybe
14:39<millisa>Might have to change what it's using for the repos
14:41<Zajt>Okay should I ask in ubuntu channel instead maybe how to do that? Because it's easy to fuck up the packages and then it's broken
14:44<Marz> Is the ddos service available in the shared services of linode?
14:44<@pwoods>Marz: the automated Dos protection does cover all Linode plans
14:45<Marz>Thanks for the info
14:51<@pwoods>Zajt: this is a known issue because of 19 being EOL'd. Here's a Community Questions site post about what you can do:
14:51<linbot>New news from community: Can’t access Administrator account on Linode with Windows Server 2012 <>
15:03<Zajt>Ah alright I see, so an dist-upgrade should do it pwoods ?
15:04<@pwoods>Please make sure you have a backup before doing anything. But yeah, that will likely work.
15:05<@pwoods>You can utilize our Backup Service for a short period of time as an option. Enable the service, run a snapshot, then perform the upgrade. If it works, disable the Backup Service. If it doesn't, restore and try again.
15:11<@pwoods>Oh yeah, cloning is also an option, Zajt. If it's in the same dc, you can swap IP addresses between the two Linodes.
15:13<Zajt>Damnit, I seems to be able to run apt-get update in order to upgrade..
15:14<@pwoods>The Community Questions post provides the steps needed to update the configuration so that it can pull from Ubuntu's mirrors.
15:14<Zajt>Yeah will follow that now
15:27<nuevu>You can swap *IPv4* addresses, not normal IPV6 ones. That's important to clarify and the docs rarely make it apparent that's an issue.
15:29<@pwoods>True, good point, nuevu

19:49<@jdutton1>millisa: if you're around, I never forgot about that Markdown thing from a few weeks ago
19:49<@jdutton1>did some digging around, and it sounds like it was most definitely a one-time glitch
19:49<@jdutton1>oh yes
19:50<@jdutton1>we link to Showdown on the Community site for syntax details:
19:50<millisa>worth testing with?
19:51<millisa>if I remember right, it was the preview was interpretting things differently than the bit that would actually show the post
19:51<@jdutton1>I tried recreating it a few times with the exact syntax you used, and it just never happened. Had some developers look to and they were stumped.
19:51<millisa>Let me go make a post to see if I remember what I did
19:51<@jdutton1>your syntax was just fine. pretty sure the preview was just being silly.
19:52<@jdutton1>for links, it should be: [Text](link)
19:52<linbot>New news from community: A community post test, please ignore <>
19:54<@jdutton1>seeing the post now - did you link to anything?
19:54<millisa> ![resize tab]( =600x300)
19:54<millisa>I put that in the edit
19:55<millisa>preview will show the image
19:55<millisa>post does not
19:56<@jdutton1>OH. It's an image. I thought it was just text you were trying to link.
19:57<millisa>the showdown cheat sheet i *think* says that is valid.
19:57<nuevu>That's the standard Markdown syntax to embed an image, at least.
19:58<millisa>compose vs preview tab.
19:58<nuevu>Is that URL actually correct? No "?"
20:00<millisa> I think it's correct? ![alt text](url/to/image =HxW)
20:00<@jdutton1>yeah the syntax is totally good
20:01<nuevu>Yeah, I was just realizing the dimensions weren't actually part of the URL. Sorry for the noise.
20:01<@jdutton1>I believe the Community site just doesn't support images despite the preview
20:01<@pwoods>FWIW, I don't believe I've seen a Community Questions post ever have an image posted.
20:01<@jdutton1>@pwoods: I was thinking the same
20:01<millisa>well, you wouldn't see it if it doesn't work
20:02<@jdutton1>lol fair
20:02<millisa>(feel free to remove the post whenever you've got enoug hi nfo)
20:02<millisa>er, enough info...
20:05<@jdutton1>bye bye post
20:06<@jdutton1>thanks for taking a minute to do that - sorry it's a no go
20:06<millisa>no worries.
20:07<millisa>doing an inline base64 encoded was similar if I remember right - ![Alt text](data:image/png;base64,iVBORKBORKyaddayadda)
20:07<millisa>it'd show in the preview, but not in the post
20:07<millisa>which is probably a good thing
20:08<@jdutton1>ok that's good to know. I'll see what I can do about not letting preview over promise content.
