13:18 ErikSiers good morning, gentlemen
13:19 ErikSiers nothing like a stiff dose of insomnia to improve your productivity; been coding for close to 12 hours now
13:37 mikemol heh
13:37 ErikSiers best night of coding i've had in YEARS
13:37 mikemol I notice we have a dozen or so new accounts, but no spam yet.
13:37 ErikSiers yeah, i noticed that as well. any of them provide good email addresses?
13:38 mikemol One bounce
13:38 ErikSiers not bad... maybe they're actually legit
13:38 mikemol I don't have a builtin way of tracking which are valid.
13:38 mikemol Most spam accounts didn't provide email addresses, period.
13:38 mikemol (At least, I don't think they did)
13:38 ErikSiers well, there ya go then
13:39 ErikSiers you're running Linux @ home, right?
13:39 ErikSiers (total change of topic)
14:01 ttmrichter There's another OS?
14:01 ttmrichter Oh, right.  BSD.  :)
14:01 ErikSiers I'm just wondering if anyone has used the 3.x kernels here. I'm kinda iffy about upgrading
14:03 ttmrichter Ah, I've been dodging that bullet myself for a while.
14:03 ErikSiers i'll probably end up waiting until the next version of slackware is released, and just upgrade EVERYTHING then
14:05 ttmrichter I think the next time I get a serious regression from a kernel update I'm jumping to a BSD.
14:05 ttmrichter Haven't decided which yet, mind.
14:05 ttmrichter Probably FreeBSD or derivative.
14:05 ErikSiers i've tried freebsd before, couldn't really get used to it
14:06 ErikSiers but yeah, it's on my list
14:06 ErikSiers plus there's some things i've been thinking about trying -- you can make it so each login is jailed, which sounds interesting to me
14:37 mischi joined #rosettacode
14:38 GlitchMr joined #rosettacode
15:12 ttmrichter ErikSiers: Yeah, jails are a nice feature.  About the sanest way to deploy an app suite.
15:13 ErikSiers i first read about jailed logins as a way to annoy customs officials. boot my laptop? ok. log in as root? sure [to a jail], there you go
15:16 ErikSiers right now, i'm trying to figure out samba. i can't seem to get windows to pass the appropriate logon info to my linux box

15:43 eMBee ErikSiers: i have been running 3.0.8 for a while and now i am on 3.1.10
15:43 ErikSiers how is it? noticeably different from 2.6?
15:43 eMBee not that i can tell
15:44 eMBee and i wouldn't expect so either
15:44 eMBee 3.0 is no different than what you'd expect from 2.6.40
15:45 ErikSiers so i've gathered... but i'm still leery of changing
15:45 ErikSiers hell, the 2.6 kernels are still getting updated anyway
15:46 eMBee the long term stable ones, yes, 2.6.32 should be the last one still being updated, maybe 2.6.38 or 39 too
15:47 ErikSiers i just downloaded linux-2.6.35.13, dated march 13
15:47 ErikSiers same date as 3.2.11
15:48 eMBee oh, ok
15:49 ErikSiers ...and now that i actually look in my archvies, i discover that it was a useless download, since i already had .39.3 (dated july 8)
15:49 ErikSiers ...sigh
15:49 ErikSiers still fighting with samba
15:49 ErikSiers ;-)
15:51 eMBee oh, my distribution has 3.2.9 available already...
15:51 ErikSiers which distro?
15:52 eMBee foresight
15:52 ErikSiers never heard of it
15:52 eMBee foresightlinux.org
15:52 GlitchMr42 joined #rosettacode
15:52 fedaykin "Foresight Linux - Because Your Distro Should be Cool!"
15:53 eMBee it has a great package manager (conary)
15:53 ErikSiers slackware has a great pkg mgr too, it's called gcc ;-)
15:54 eMBee lol
15:54 ErikSiers slack DOES have a pkg mgr, i just don't use it
15:55 eMBee :-)
15:56 ErikSiers well, it's almost 9am local, i've been up for roughly a billion hours... night, all
15:56 * eMBee does the opposite, even for stuff only available as source, he packages it before installing. because conary makes that almost trivially easy
15:56 eMBee good night

16:45 mikemol Do we have a messaging bot in here?
16:45 mikemol [[hello]]
16:45 fedaykin http://rosettacode.org/wiki/hello (Doesn't exist.)
16:46 mikemol fedaykin: Tell ErikSiers yes, I'm running 3.2.1 on most of my systems, 3.1.6 on one (which I've been lazy and haven't updated frequently enough)

17:31 mikemol Really odd bursting traffic patterns in the last 24 hours: http://rosettacode.org/cdc3/bin/index.cgi?hostnam​e=prgmr2.rosettacode.org&plugin=entropy&p​lugin=memcached&plugin=memory&timespan=86​400&action=show_selection&ok_button=OK

17:44 eMBee did you see any other hits from china since saturday?
17:45 eMBee btw: nickserv can also send messages

18:11 GlitchMr42 joined #rosettacode
18:12 mikemol eMBee: Only if they're registered. Most people who pass through here never register.
18:16 eMBee ah, ok
18:29 mikemol eMBee: Anyway, about a 30% jump in traffic over the last week from the previos. Significant comparative increase in traffic starting from  March 12 onward, so far.
18:39 eMBee nice
18:40 eMBee the blug presentation can't have much to do with that though, there weren't that many people
19:14 mikemol eMBee: I dunno; I think most of the non-search traffic tends to be repeat users.
19:14 mikemol Either people who see RC are interested or they aren't. If they aren't, they visit at most 2-3 pages. If they are, they keep coming back.
