01:51 pdurbin ah
05:02 comptona joined #crimsonfu
10:05 pdurbin holy crap. I think I fixed it! with firmware!
10:05 pdurbin X220 Touchpad jumpy response when used with 90w slim AC adapter - Firmware update http://forums.lenovo.com/t5/X-Series-ThinkPad-Laptops/X220-Touchpad-jumpy-response-when-used-with-90w-slim-AC-adapter/ta-p/766543
10:06 pdurbin via Lenovo ThinkPad Laptop – Jittery/Jumpy Touchpad | Ray Woodcock's Latest - http://raywoodcockslatest.wordpress.com/2012/12/09/lenovo-thinkpad-jittery-touchpad/
10:07 pdurbin lots of other stuff posted about this: "Using Ubuntu 12.04, 64-bit version, installed on Lenovo X220 laptop. Fresh "default" install and settings configuration. When the laptop is plugged into a power source, the touchpad's onscreen cursor (the white arrow that shows position) shakes excessively when trying to use the touchpad to control the cursor." -- Bug #1028617 “Cursor shakes violently when
10:07 pdurbin connected to power so...” : Bugs : “xserver-xorg-input-synaptics” package : Ubuntu - https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/xserver-xorg-input-synaptics/+bug/1028617
10:08 pdurbin random mouse clicking
10:08 pdurbin cursor jumping
10:09 pdurbin hopefully those are enough keywords so other people can find the solution. this has been driving me crazy
10:09 pdurbin more crazy :)
11:46 mhayden pdurbin: yeah, that's frustrating on the new lenovo models too (the ones without any mouse buttons)
11:46 mhayden i saw a post about someone complaining about a T440 for that reason
11:50 JamesBay joined #crimsonfu
11:56 pdurbin mhayden: I was losing my mind. All this clicking happening without me doing anything
11:56 mhayden yeah, i tossed windows 7 on my X1 just to see if i was totally nuts and it was like i had a totally different trackpad
11:56 mhayden it totally behaved itself
11:57 pdurbin EXACTLY
11:57 pdurbin and can you imagine me bringing it in?
11:57 pdurbin "um. sir, just reboot into windows. goodbye!"
11:58 pdurbin mhayden: to be clear, I didn't actually use anything on your post (though I did play with those settings a bit). The fix was a firmware update
12:01 melodie joined #crimsonfu
12:54 mhayden ah okay, i'm not sure if my X1 has a firmware update
13:51 rruma joined #crimsonfu
14:39 skay pdurbin: it's probably not copacetic for me to use swear words in dvn so, speaking of databases and key value stores, http://howfuckedismydatabase.com/
14:39 skay I love that site
14:39 skay http://howfuckedismydatabase.com/nosql/
14:40 skay please let me know if it is also not copacetic here
14:49 pdurbin it's all good
14:49 * mhayden is so extraordinarily offended
14:49 mhayden :)
14:55 skay okay whew.
14:55 skay :)
15:04 pdurbin skay: you can even start a python vs. perl debate... like old times in here :)
15:06 rruma joined #crimsonfu
15:08 skay country or western (blues brothers)
15:08 rruma1 joined #crimsonfu
15:08 skay vim or emacs
15:10 skay executable line noise versus executable pseudocode
15:11 skay one problem versus two problems

16:01 larsks joined #crimsonfu
16:01 larsks Any fasrc folks hanging around right now?
17:26 JoeJulian mhayden: "Your password must contain..." regardless of entropy?
17:50 mhayden JoeJulian: what?
17:50 JoeJulian I just had to change a password at RS. It didn't like my more-secure really-long password and made me choose one that had mixed case.
17:51 JoeJulian entropy > mixed-case...
17:52 JoeJulian mhayden: Do you use/recommend any sort of password-keeper and if so, which one?
17:56 mhayden JoeJulian: i'm partial to lastpass
17:57 mhayden i feel like i get the best security/usability balance with it
18:06 larsks I use GPG + a text file :)
18:23 semiosis post-its on the monitor
19:23 pdurbin larsks: welcome back!
19:24 sjoeboo joined #crimsonfu
19:25 pdurbin sjoeboo: you too :)
19:25 sjoeboo larsks: you were looking for someone fasrc ?
19:29 larsks Yes! Is that you?
19:30 larsks pdurbin: Hi! :)
19:30 sjoeboo yepppp
19:31 larsks sjoeboo: Do you know anything about rchelp.fas.harvard.edu?  It appears to account for, like, 80% of the requests to the RDO software repositories at http://repos.fedorapeople.org/ and we're trying to figure out who to contact...
19:32 sjoeboo oh yeah, that would be me/us
19:32 sjoeboo that, @ the moment, accounts for an ourbound proxy server
19:32 sjoeboo which out internal mirror system exgresses through
19:32 sjoeboo should just be an rsync hourly.
19:33 sjoeboo but one of the other guys setup the rdo one...lets see...
19:33 larsks No, this is something doing recursive HEAD and GET requests against the site; not rsync.
19:33 larsks Around 800,000 requests/day.
19:33 sjoeboo ugh, okay
19:33 sjoeboo this is this tangental team to us, need to track those guys down.
19:34 larsks Okay.  The RDO repositories don't update all that often, so the mirror could be cranked down a chunk and still keep things reasonably up to date.
19:35 sjoeboo yeah, no, this is/was some falks not directly on our team half-assed setting some stuff up...i'll track them down.
19:35 larsks Thanks.
19:38 sjoeboo found it, it'll stop, might resume @ some point but in a much nicer way.
19:38 sjoeboo if it happens again, or you've got any questions for us, help@fas.harvard.edu will get the whole group
19:38 sjoeboo wait
19:38 sjoeboo rchelp@fas.harvard.edu
19:38 sjoeboo durrr
19:40 sivoais joined #crimsonfu
19:42 larsks sjoeboo: Awesome!
19:44 larsks sjoeboo: If it helps, we can probably enable rsync mirrors.  If someone is interested they can contact me at lars@redhat.com.
19:44 sjoeboo okay cool
19:53 semiosis pdurbin: you're at IQSS right?  havent had a chance to read the article yet but noticed an IQSS mention here: http://harvardmagazine.com/2014/03/why-big-data-is-a-big-deal
19:55 pdurbin semiosis: yep: http://www.iq.harvard.edu/people/philip-durbin
19:55 pdurbin I'm slowing working through that article. It's a good one
21:05 pdurbin since I'm an employee, I get the print version at home
22:11 pdurbin speaking of fasrc, nice to see https://github.com/fasrc/openauth-puppet/issues/1 and use of travis, which I've been meaning to try
22:17 pdurbin semiosis: do you use travis?
22:23 semiosis pdurbin: https://travis-ci.org/semiosis/glusterfs-java-filesystem
22:24 semiosis yes i do
22:24 pdurbin ooooh, maven even
22:24 pdurbin this gives me hope I can get it to poop out a war
22:24 semiosis yep, it even installs a deb from a PPA before running the tests!
22:25 semiosis pdurbin: the hard part is what should it do with the WAR
22:25 pdurbin yeah
22:25 semiosis you'll need to do some fancy stuff to set up a secure upload from travis to wherever without disclosing the credentials publicly
22:26 semiosis there's docs on how to do it
22:26 pdurbin well, for starters, how about it runs checkstyle or something. and builds the war. baby steps
22:26 semiosis fwiw, my .travis.yml - https://github.com/semiosis/glusterfs-java-filesystem/blob/master/.travis.yml
22:27 semiosis one cool thing was the catlogs.sh (not my invention, got the idea from somewhere else)
22:27 pdurbin semiosis: thanks, I was just looking at that... that's all you need?
22:27 semiosis yep, and connect travis with github to run after a push
22:27 pdurbin nice
22:29 pdurbin semiosis: does it have to be a push? instead, can travis host the war file? then I pull it down and deploy it into my app server?
22:30 semiosis usually you'd have maven push the thing somewhere
22:30 semiosis there's plenty of options for that
22:30 semiosis maven wagon plugins
22:30 semiosis i like the s3 wagon plugin
22:30 semiosis lets maven upload to an s3 bucket
22:31 pdurbin sure. but with jenkins I can just download the war file from each build
22:31 semiosis eh, the power of maven comes from using maven
22:32 semiosis i doubt travis will save artifacts for you
22:32 semiosis but maybe
22:32 pdurbin ok
22:32 pdurbin makes sense. it would eat up a lot of their disk space
22:33 semiosis also ripe for abuse
22:33 pdurbin yeah
22:40 semiosis pdurbin: did you ever set up a nexus repo?
22:40 semiosis that's the ultimate place to store the artifacts
22:40 pdurbin nope :(
22:40 semiosis but of course the most sophisticated
22:41 pdurbin none of our ops guys are in here. can't ask them again if they'll set it up for me ;) ... I do have a ticket for it
22:41 semiosis wagon ftp is probably the absolute simplest, though i never have used it... https://maven.apache.org/wagon/wagon-providers/wagon-ftp/
22:42 pdurbin is there free nexus hosting for lazy people?
22:42 semiosis sonatype OSSRH, which feeds into maven central
22:42 semiosis i just signed up for that for the gluster java project
22:42 pdurbin orly
22:43 pdurbin crimsonfubot: lucky sonatype ossrh
22:43 crimsonfubot pdurbin: https://docs.sonatype.org/display/Repository/Sonatype+OSS+Maven+Repository+Usage+Guide
22:43 pdurbin "Sonatype OSSRH (OSS Repository Hosting Service) uses Nexus to provide Maven repository hosting service for open source projects: https://oss.sonatype.org "
22:43 pdurbin semiosis: now you tell me! :)
22:44 semiosis yeah, that
22:44 semiosis you never asked!
22:44 semiosis (iirc)
22:44 pdurbin :)
22:45 pdurbin oh, that reminds me. our designer signed up for pagekit recently. also free for open source
22:45 pdurbin er. pagekite
22:46 semiosis curl | sudo :(
22:48 semiosis afk
