whaack: asciilifeform: Lol good thing indeed, yes I choose the cheapest option under the '860' series
asciilifeform: you want 'evo' or (if you're launching into orbit, as i did in 1 box in uy) the costlier (and ~10-20% longer-lived) 'pro' .
asciilifeform: whaack: i oughta have said specifically. apol. to whaack et al & diana_coman for the added log kilometrage from this.
asciilifeform: whaack: imho 'pro' cannot be justified in a box that you can easily physically get to & swap disk in.
whaack: asciilifeform: Yes. I was just typing that it seems wisest to get evo and just make sure I back it up (as I plan / am assigned to do anyways)
asciilifeform: whaack: back up to a traditional mechanical hd.
whaack: asciilifeform: Will do and I'll post the hard drive I pick for the purpose. Right now I am using an external Seagate Backup Plus Slim - I picked it off the shelf as I was stuffing bag for CR.
whaack: thimbronion: msg securely received. That said I plan to put your addy through the heathen pipes on samsung's website on an order tied to my card. If there's another way you would like me to order the ssd to you, please let me know. For example I can reimburse you with cash here if you'd prefer to order it yourself.
thimbronion: whaack: it's fine to use my info
whaack: cool
jfw: << he made a valiant effort but didn't quite manage the 30. Beverage was delivered too.
ossabot: Logged on 2019-11-18 14:26:39 dorion: looking forward to delivering the 30 punches and a pinch to grow an inch.
ossabot: Logged on 2019-11-19 17:57:26 diana_coman: you clearly owe him a cerveza for that at least, lol.
jfw: diana_coman, your blog front page renders but articles all seem to be 404, e.g.
jfw: mod_rewrite config I'd guess.
whaack: diana_coman: EOD report - Writing the backup scripts took a bit of time because I had to pay a lot of unix debt along the way. I have the basic design you laid out here with steps a,b,c. done. I still have some questions about how the file's permissions + group + owner are copied over that I will investigate later. I need to make projections as t
whaack: o how long before my hard drive fills up, and also exactly what it is on my local computer I want to save. Lastly, I need to do a dry run of recovering my blog to make sure everything is in order.
whaack: diana_coman: As for the '2h of planning for the hardware store / listing comp parts' i didn't get to do that w/ a specific block of time. But I did make progress on that front earlier in the day w/ speaking to the carpenter + the figuring out the ssd for my comp. Continuing work on this is my first priority for tomorrow morning before I head to town.

diana_coman: hello Jeff78
diana_coman: ask in here Jeff78
Jeff78: Sure
Jeff78: Can you tell me about to goal of ossasepia. and the platform on
diana_coman: Jeff78: this chan is basically the forum/discussion place/direct interaction for my YH ( project
diana_coman: you can read the story on YH starting with (do note that you might need the IP directly for my blog )
diana_coman: Jeff78: as to platform, what do you mean? simply runs a customised version of wordpress really
diana_coman: (as does for that matter)
diana_coman: Jeff78: how did you find this place?
Jeff78: I've indeed read the part on younghandsclub. It difficult for me to understand though.
diana_coman: Jeff78: there is a lot to it; but just ask further then; what are you stuck on?
Jeff78: I will start of with reading the article here
Jeff78: The reason I'm interested in your project is because I saw the domain is directed to your project. I've started my own business recently after I graduated. To take it of the ground in germany I would be in need of the domain that is now pointing to your website. Would you be open to an offer from my side?
Jeff78: If you actually using it thats fine too. I'll have to find another name haha ;)
diana_coman: Jeff78: you might want to have a look at what others figured out too and/or the road they took to here, eg on their blogs
diana_coman: ? no idea
diana_coman: lolz; what is this project about?
Jeff78: Hahaha, did you see the redirect?
diana_coman: Jeff78: I just switched IPs recently so it's possibly an old record somewhere
diana_coman: Jeff78: I tend to ignore DNS and simply set the IPs in hosts file so not exactly bothered with all that
Jeff78: Hmm that could be it. I was amazed because it didn't ooint anywhere a few weeks ago
Jeff78: If people know where to find you IPs are fine haha :)
diana_coman: Jeff78: so what's the project you are working on ?
diana_coman: well yes, the people around here know and do; they are quite...knowing, like that. It's a bit the whole point around here, you know
Jeff78: We're developing a ticket solution for cultural organisations to be able to sell their tickets without having to deal with high fees from companies such as ticketmaster.
Jeff78: So I've had an interest in tracking the domain owner, but the whois records are set to anonymous
Jeff78: So you're my only lead lol
diana_coman: Jeff78: heh, the technical solution exists already really; there's a bot around those parts that does invoicing and payments and all that
Jeff78: I know we're not the only one, but we aim to be the only free one :p
diana_coman: to not have to pay high fees to ticketmaster and other similar slave-masters (because that's what they are), it's the people in those organisations you need to develop, not technical solutions
diana_coman: they are in that poor situation because they don't know better, not because they don't have more tools really
Jeff78: Oh definetely the technical solution is never the only part. You need to educate people.
diana_coman: Jeff78: the bot here is free, you know? but yes, it's free *not for anyone* and if you don't mind me saying it, the "free for everyone" approach is an extremely poor choice.
Jeff78: Do you have any idea of what was hosted on the ip before? Maybe that will give me a lead to the owner of the domain.
diana_coman: Jeff78: trouble is: what do you plan to educate them about/on?
diana_coman: Jeff78: I have no idea but apparently that eventix thing was hosted there before,no?
Jeff78: uhm, probably just pointed here.
Jeff78: There was never really a website
Jeff78: Its just some domain squatter.
diana_coman: well, I don't mind it,lolz.
Jeff78: But the ip probably hosted more websites by the same owner
Jeff78: Thanks for your help anyway
Jeff78: And for your interest in what im working on.
diana_coman: no problem; maybe find some time and read around a bit, you might find more than you came asking for :D
diana_coman: that's what I do around here: taking an interest in who people are and what they are working on; it reportedly... helps them.
dorion_road waves from vermont.
diana_coman: that's a long wave! good to see you made it though.
dorion_road: diana_coman thanks. fog cancelled the afternoon flight from boston, ended up renting a driver to make the ~4 hour drive instead. got in later, but had had a nice conversation on the drive with a fellow traveler and made a connection so it worked out.
dorion_road to get caught up on log/blog reading.
dorion_road: also, there's snow on the ground here, so that was nice to arrive to :)
diana_coman: enjoy!
whaack: diana_coman: good morning. Is there a specific type of thermal paste I should buy? Is the arctic mx4 an acceptable option? I am planning to get 2 4gram tubes of these.
BingoBoingo: whaack: That's probably a fine choice. Artic silver also probably a fine choice, but it is electrically conductive so gotta be very careful where it goes. When I do laptop heatsinks I usually use one of the artic ceramic pastes.
whaack: BingoBoingo: Cool, I will use the mx-4 then and be very careful where it goes regardless.
BingoBoingo: More tubes of smaller size is better. You'll be using very little of it infrequently, so the next time you want to apply thermal grease it may be better to open the second tube instead of using the first again. I base this around the assumption thermal grease is a sort of glue and "bottle open time" is the enemy of shelf life.
diana_coman: whaack: it's fine,yes; but buy small tubes, you won't need a ton for one single computer.
diana_coman: ah, BingoBoingo already said it, huh; thank you BingoBoingo !
BingoBoingo: The most important thing is following the instructions. They vary by thermal grease.
BingoBoingo: diana_coman: You're welcome.
whaack: alright, I will get 4x 2g tubes.
whaack: (the smallest size I see available on amazon)
jfw waves but will be pretty well tied up today.
diana_coman: no worries.
jfw: I look forward to your feedback on today's article and any direction for tomorrow's; a similar treatment of the WoT series would be my assumption.
diana_coman: and do write it in the morning please.
