08:21<@_brian>it might fail on registration because we place a $1 auth hold on the card to verify it works

09:27-!-Dewihasanah is "OFTC WebIRC Client" on #linode
09:38<kharlan>Lol, you just make linbot automagically say “greetings” whenever some joins and says hi.
09:38<kharlan>You need a < 5 second response time or else they lose focus and leave the chat.
09:40<rsdehart>I wonder if there's some way to manage the expectation that this is a one-on-one support chat
09:40<kharlan>I guess the alternative is to place brian in front of a computer screen and never let him leave.
09:40<@_brian>wait is that not what we're already doing?
09:41<kharlan>This plan would exclude bathroom breaks and sleeping.
09:41<kharlan>It's a promotion.
09:41<@_brian>i am humbled to have the opportunity
09:42<kharlan>rsdehart , well it seems like they've updated their contact page. 'Chat with the Linode community on the Linode IRC channel. Join #linode on on your favorite IRC client.' . It doesn't even mention support or a 1-1 with an employee.
09:44<@_brian>i feel like if linbot greeted folks it would probably become tiresome pretty quickly
09:44<rsdehart>kharlan: what did it previously say?
09:45<@_brian>also the noise would probably mess up the regulars who respond to the new users
09:45<kharlan>True, bot spam is kinda annoying.
09:47<kharlan>rsdehart rip, according to way back machine, it said the same thing in 2018 lol
09:48<rsdehart>kharlan: it's said that for at least two years, yet people still seem to - yes
09:48<kharlan>Yeah... people are just..{}
09:49<rsdehart>maybe it's in part a misconstruing of "community" as "company"
09:49<rsdehart>or "community within the company"
09:49<rsdehart>community of employees
09:49<rsdehart>or "oh nice, they call their staff a community"

09:52<kharlan>Lol professional excuse maker
09:52<kharlan>I didn’t misread it and I tend to skip over words when I’m just grazing through a page?
09:54<kharlan>I can see how community could be misinterpreted as employees + normal users, but I’ve never seen a company only reference their staff as the companies community . Atleast not in the hosting industry?
09:57<kharlan>idk, you can't teach the world \o/

11:27<dwfreed>grawity: probably not; could be a bug in lish enumerating config profiles (Rescue Mode makes a config profile that the API hides from you)

11:28<grawity>not all of them are identical, too

14:50<test>i am trying to setup linode cli tool
14:50<test>and got stuck
14:50<test>anyone could help
14:50<millisa>maybe, where'd you get stuck?
14:50<test>pip3 install linode-cli --upgrade
14:50<test>this went fine
14:50<test>but linode-cli
14:50<test>is not in path
14:51<test>the command to set it in path was not mentioned in the page
14:51<test>for ubuntu
14:51<test>or linux
14:51<test>so which is the path where it got installed
14:51<millisa>On the last system I tried it on, it installed it to /usr/bin
14:52<millisa>Does '/usr/bin/linode-cli -v' work?
14:52<test> cannot access '/usr/bin/linode-cli': No such file or directory
14:53<millisa>which version of ubuntu?
14:53<test>ubuntu 20.04
14:53<Xion>Did you do pip3 install as root?
14:53<Xion>If no, is it in ~/bin or ~/.local/bin?
14:54<test>found it
14:54<test>this is the path ~/.local/bin/linode-cli
14:55<millisa>!point Xion
14:55<linbot>millisa: Point given to xion. (9)
14:56-!-test [~oftc-webi@] has quit [Quit: Page closed]
15:01<millisa>since I was curious; just did a quick test with a 20.04 spinup, and if you do the pip3 install as root there, it throws the binary into /usr/local/bin
15:01<millisa>er, the python3 script. binary I suppose is inaccurate.

16:47-!-octos4murai is "OFTC WebIRC Client" on #linode
16:50<octos4murai>Pardon me if this is not the place to ask. I am new to Linode. Does Linode bill users on a set date every month? Is this date the same for every user (e.g. start/end of every month)?
16:52<millisa>They bill on the first.
16:52<millisa>There are circumstances where they will do mid month billing
16:52<octos4murai>Thank you.
16:53<millisa>A little higher in the same doc: "All services are invoiced automatically on the first day of the month for usage from the previous month."
16:54<octos4murai>Very helpful. Appreciate you providing the source!
16:54<Peng>(Linode also authorizes or charges a little money when your first register an account.)
16:54<millisa>Sure thing. Also, this is a perfectly reasonable place to ask

17:40<warewolf>hey linode OPS - not entirely sure why my credit card company thought a monthly linode service charge was suspicious, but for some reason they thought it was. Just letting you know in case other customers charges don't go through; this might be why.
17:40<warewolf>thankfully my credit card company sent me an email to say "no this is totes legit, please let it go through" and all is good
17:42<Peng>Mine did the same thing. THey also did it a couple months ago to a service I've been subscribed to even longer than Linode. (Sorry Linode.)
17:43<Peng>It's scary and makes me not want to use them for subscription services. :-/
17:44<warewolf>well anti-fraud is _kind_ of the credit card company's _thing_ so if they're flagging it, they've got good reason to generally.
17:45<Peng>Generally yes. THis time no. :D

18:06<warewolf>Subject: Payment Receipt [11258065]
18:06<warewolf>payment went through.
18:09<virtual>when did mtr start using colour on its other display modes?? I like!
18:09<virtual>though, would be nice if everything over 252ms wasn't just '>' ;) (which for me, is 5 hops)
18:33<@pwoods>warewolf or Peng: any chance you were tweeting about that earlier today?
18:34<@pwoods>I'm not aware of this being a wide spread thing, but maybe it is? I'm not sure if there's much we can do about this, but if we know more, it could be investigated more. I think we would need more data about what banks and countries.
18:38<warewolf>wasn't me tweeting about it
18:38<Peng>Wasn't me either
18:40<Peng>I got the payment receipt email from Linode before the payment was actually approved with the credit card company. :-/
18:40<Peng>(Actually I have two Linode accounts, but only the first payment got flagged, I think.)
18:41<Peng>It ~seems~ they send a scary email without actually blocking the payment. I guess they'll do a chargeback if you say it was fraudulent.
18:41<Peng>That or payment processors are very nice
18:41<Peng>pwoods: PM?

21:27<chesty>how about "degraded service" when the whole thing is offline?
21:28<chesty>pssst, it's not 11am everywhere in the world

21:32<virtual>dammit. how did I miss that chesty basically said the same thing.

21:39<virtual>But when I listened to the recording, I thought he just said Sydney. So *shrug*
21:40<chesty>because you're a pom
21:41<virtual>okay, chesty has confirmed I'm a pom now.
