01:14 * mikemol grumbles
01:15 mikemol recaptcha isn't working. DNSBLs aren't working.
01:16 eMBee what about captchas that make you do smarter things like math, or answering questions
01:17 mikemol Also doesn't help that RC's MW install is out of date at this point.
01:17 mikemol I really need to get that updated.
01:17 eMBee questions could be: make a list from 1 to 3 in python :-)
01:17 mikemol Damnit. I just don't have time to even maintain the server any more.
01:18 eMBee :-(
01:18 eMBee new job keeping you busy?
01:18 Hypftier joined #rosettacode
01:19 eMBee have you considered asking for volunteers to help?
01:23 mikemol It was like that for about six months. That, househunting, family medical issues, moving, fixing up a house that was prettier on the surface, jobhunting, scraping together enough part-time contracting work (that doesn't require moving) to prepare for taxes.
01:23 Hypftier joined #rosettacode
01:24 mikemol Well, the transition from busy job to jobhunting happened early january.
01:25 mikemol eMBee: I do pull in volunteers from time to time. BenBE keeps GeSHi up-to-date. Coderjoe handles server crises if I can't get to it in a timely manner.
01:25 mikemol But for maintenance, I haven't pulled anyone in.
01:28 mikemol RC needs at least a couple things at this point:
01:29 mikemol 1) decent automated backup. I've had that set up in the past, but chaos in my home network from time to time breaks whatever I set up.
01:31 mikemol 2) Backup server stack
01:38 eMBee well, maybe it's time to find help in that area.
01:41 mikemol I'm keeping the packages updated pretty easily; the server emails me every time there's an update available...but MediaWiki (and the extensions installed) aren't packaged, so don't get updates so easily. (Not to mention schema updates)
01:41 mikemol Indeed.
01:42 eMBee so you'd specifically need help maintaining mediawiki...
01:43 mikemol At the moment, that's the thing.
01:43 mikemol Although not terribly long from now, it'll be time to do another server migration for an OS update.
01:46 * eMBee knows about that one. got one server stuck in the past. fortunately my collegue is going to migrate and upgrade this week finally
01:46 mikemol MediaWiki updates are pretty easy, actually.
01:46 mikemol Copy localsettings.php to a temporary place, unpack the new tarball in place, copy localsettings.php back and run the schema-update script.
01:47 eMBee still, someone's got to do it, and that's easier if you don't have lots of other things on your mind
01:48 mikemol It's the CYA before and after the upgrade that's the time-consuming PITA.
01:49 eMBee CYA?
01:49 mikemol "Cover Your Ass".
01:49 mikemol Local backup, ability to roll back if something goes south.
01:51 * eMBee nods

20:06 mikemol Some men just want to watch the world burn...
20:10 mikemol In particular, I'm thinking of the jerks who are actively monitoring and manually adapting their spammer scripts to RC's specific configurations.
20:15 mikemol I wonder what DNSBLs exist for indexing IP ranges managed by hosting providers. Hosting provider IP addresses should not be creating accounts.
