12:33 ben_e interesting
12:33 ben_e whuggle is a general term of affection used in a few irc channels i'm in
12:33 ben_e i figured urban dictionary would have it
12:33 ben_e but nyet
12:34 pdurbin plop
12:34 ben_e it's like a wuving huggle
12:34 * ben_e whuggles pdurbin
12:34 ben_e are you going to abcd today?
12:35 pdurbin hmm..  SPECIAL PRESENTATION: Chris Erdmann
12:35 pdurbin I prolly should...
12:35 pdurbin ben_e: what's he talking about?
12:36 pdurbin oh. I found it
12:36 ben_e tech at the SAO?
12:37 ben_e Christopher Erdmann, Head Librarian for the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, will be giving a talk on the precise degree of shame other scientific librarians feel when trying to compete with that title.
12:41 * pdurbin emails him, asking if the talk will be awesome
12:42 ben_e do you know him?
12:42 pdurbin oh sure, he's involved with http://theastrodata.org :)
12:43 ben_e right, right
12:43 joshu afternoon
12:44 ben_e and morning!
12:45 joshu quick silly question. i need to generate a new password for a specific very annoying user who prefers using her name as her pass. I know it's not the best but I'm considering using the 1password generator and giving her a pass like this: neb-ob-fa-qu and she's just going to have to learn it. Any thoughts? I know i know users
12:47 pdurbin joshu: do the right thing
12:50 joshu pdurbin which is? give her a head slap :P

20:24 ben_e pdurbin: marlena says you have been trying to recruit her for irc
20:35 pdurbin ben_e: she participated here: http://irclog.iq.harvard.edu/dvn/2013-02-13#i_809 :)
20:41 ben_e i broached the abcd irc server idea with rei and a few others that were around
20:41 ben_e it basically comes down to me being willing to run it probably
20:42 ben_e i guess i should stand up irc.abcd.harvard.edu at some point
20:44 larsks ben_e: what would be the point of a local irc server?  why not just have #harvard_abcd here on freenode?
20:45 ben_e i think the big win would be reliability
20:45 ben_e no netsplits due to DDOS of freenode
20:45 larsks ...really?  Because I've found freenode to be pretty reliable, and running a single server here seems like a good SPOF.
20:45 ben_e some local-to-harvard admins if we get some bad actors
20:46 ben_e i also think the officially unofficial blessing of an ABCD server would entice more people to join
20:46 larsks And it would be part of freenode?  Or some other net?
20:46 ben_e i was thinking just a standalone server
20:47 ben_e i understand the SPOF aspect, but i had it in mind as a low key, informal networking thing for tech ppl at harvard
20:48 ben_e if they are going to use it to coordinate during HU network outages then...
20:48 ben_e more thinking/engineering/etc would be required
20:48 larsks I dunno.  All the freenode services (cert. based authentication, chanserv, etc) are nice.  And not having to be logged into multiple servers is nice, too.
20:48 larsks And the community is nice!
20:48 ben_e that is a win
20:48 ben_e i suspect that the people we might attract to an abcd server would not be the types who joined and used public irc anyway
20:49 larsks I would vote for creating harvard-oriented channels here on freenode.  I would probably ignore a local server that wasn't part of a larger network.
20:49 ben_e noted :-)
20:49 larsks ...but that's moot, because I'm leaving in a month anyway.
20:49 * ben_e scratches out the note
20:49 ben_e congrats?
20:50 ben_e where are you off to?
20:50 larsks Heading to Red Hat! Starting early September.
20:50 ben_e has AC been assimilated yet?
20:50 ben_e you got poached by mamiller!
20:50 larsks Something like. :)
20:50 ben_e are you joining him in fedora cloud community ops thingy?
20:51 ben_e or another group?
20:51 larsks I'm going to be joining their openstack/cloud group.
20:51 ben_e cool
20:51 ben_e how many people left in AC when you go?
20:51 larsks 1 full time and 2 part time.
20:52 ben_e and no replacement for rob yet?
20:52 larsks They have hired a new Assistant Dean for Computing, starts on 8/19.  Not a replacement for Rob; the position is at a higher level.
20:52 ben_e the possibility of HUIT assimilation looms over every small IT group i think
20:52 ben_e nods
21:52 semiosis why do i keep making changes to prod after 5 PM on fridays?!?!?!
21:52 semiosis need a poster on the wall to remind me not to do this
22:43 ben_e you should just start drinking at 4 PM

23:32 pdurbin larsks: congrats! don't forget us!
23:32 pdurbin and I agree that freenode is both awesome and reliable
