14:00 punter Is there a way to get a user's metacpan user_id, if I only know the user's facebook id?
14:14 punter https://github.com/CPAN-API/metacpan-web/issues/1243
14:14 dipsy [ Allow retrieval of a user's user_id from facebook_id, google_id or github_id · Issue #1243 · CPAN-API/metacpan-web · GitHub ]
14:23 punter I guess if I was a MC developer, I could do it myself.
14:23 punter :-)
15:30 sue joined #metacpan
15:31 sue i'm surprised that searching for Date::Manip doesn't show me that module. Is there something I should know?
15:44 ether what is the name of the thing that replaced the deprecated MetaCPAN::API?
16:33 ranguard ether ::Client i think
16:39 ether MetaCPAN::API::Client ? I can't find that
16:40 ether actually I'm getting 'Proxy Error' back from searches currently
16:40 ether did someone just do a new code deployment?
16:47 ether ranguard: MetaCPAN::Client?
16:49 mo someone unpolite was hammering us
16:50 mo faking the user agent
16:50 mo iptables ftw
16:50 mo http://www.utrace.de/ip-adresse/192.31.19.22
16:50 dipsy [ 192.31.19.22 - IP-Adresse - utrace - IP-Adressen und Domainnamen lokalisieren ]
16:51 mo DoD Network Information Center
16:51 mo interesting
16:51 ether block them! :)
16:52 mo same IP address requesting pages with user agents ranging from bing bot to google bot
16:56 ether looks like you're getting hammered again
16:56 ether I just had a request take ~20s to respond
16:56 ether s/you're/it/ # don't anthropomorphize computers; they hate that!
17:01 mo argh
17:01 mo since we are using fastly I was just blocking fastly I guess
17:01 mo ranguard: what do we do in such a case?
17:01 mo I don’t see the true Ip addresses anymore

17:22 ranguard mo: #fastly on freenode would help
17:23 ranguard we should setup their IP's to be trusted for ip_forwarding but not done that yet
17:23 ranguard sorry, afk for a bit more, will try get back soon
17:40 mo will that help with blocking through iptables? the source will still be one of their ips
17:43 neilb joined #metacpan
17:55 ranguard true - I'll go ask them
17:57 ranguard though at least you'd see what the traffic actually originated from
17:59 mo the user agent gives a good idea, it’s mostly bots that are hammering us
17:59 mo I don’t know if fastly allows to block based on user agent
17:59 mo or throttle even
17:59 ranguard anything Varnish can do basically
18:00 ranguard speaking to one of their support team now

18:06 ranguard mo: bottom line, need to get real IP's into the logs, then fastly can block those for us
18:07 ranguard throtteling not an option at the moment, could serve cached only content or other combinations, but as every page has a cookie it's not useful atm
18:11 heytitle_ hi!
