ben_vulpes: BingoBoingo: please make users for myself, mod6, and asciilifeform on UY1
ben_vulpes: asciilifeform mod6 hanbot: i'm thinking 25 bucks per month for these shells
ben_vulpes: that would be something like 0.003 btc/mo
ben_vulpes: also, finished retallying expenses, baked a transaction which will confirm ideally this evening and then i'll have funds in asciilifeform's deedbot wallet
ben_vulpes: going to keep all pizarro funds in a pizarro wallet moving forward, just to keep the picture clear
ben_vulpes: tomorrow i fire bills for pro-rated march services, and the pro-rata share of the transport fee to .uy
ben_vulpes: asciilifeform: i appear to have to wait for my deposit turd to wind its way through deedbot's bowels, so i'm going to hit the hay and finish this chore tomorrow
mod6: <@ben_vulpes> asciilifeform mod6 hanbot: i'm thinking 25 bucks per month for these shells <@ben_vulpes> that would be something like 0.003 btc/mo << any idea on how many to break even on this box? is $25 more or less than would charge for vps or small computer?
asciilifeform: mod6: approx what such a thing costs in heathendom, yes
ben_vulpes: mod6: mhm, it's approximately what an entry-level vps costs; i think it's actually a great deal
ben_vulpes: probably 10-15 usd of headroom in there
BingoBoingo: <asciilifeform> the q for BingoBoingo : do you know how to set up an ethernet switch such that 1) every jack has a FIXED ip 2) a nic in promisc mode on any jack , will see jackshit << I don't have much more than a vague idea of how it could be pulled off on our switch. The safer place to pull this off would probably be on one or more smaller switches.
mod6: <@ben_vulpes> mod6: mhm, it's approximately what an entry-level vps costs; i think it's actually a great deal << I don't think it's a bad deal either. Just curious how many accounts we'll need on there to even break even,
mimisbrunnr: Logged on 2018-03-22 22:35 asciilifeform: on the 'low-end' of things, i recently tested a http://www.friendlyarm.com , where 10bux gets you a pogo-style 256M, and 12bux -- 512M, with 100M/s nic
ben_vulpes: lobbes: what are the stats on that vps?
lobbes: On frantech it is 512M, 1TB bw per month, and a ~50GB hd space
ben_vulpes: BingoBoingo: please update /etc/profile to 0077, modify the permissions on /etc/skel to 700, and then create a new user with homedir and confirm that user's homedir permissions are 700 and umask is 0077
ben_vulpes: paste a log of the confirmations for asciilifeform's review
BingoBoingo: I've updated the /etc/profile file, but WTF is /etc/skel
ben_vulpes: it is the directory from which permissions are pulled for new user directories
BingoBoingo: Well I will probably be back later. Today's the day I get to see how my shit survived the latest dormitory to gas chamber conversion. Based on a brief peak at the purple residues on the glass this morning it looked like they used magnesium phosphide tablets.
mod6: I think we indeed need to work late today on this. What was the time horizon that we told Mr. P. & Hanbot that we'd have this ready?
asciilifeform: the one reason not to use nginx would be if somebody has something apache-specific they wish to run.
ben_vulpes: i'll have to jet here shortly, but before i do help me understand how customers are to install packages. should danielpbarron want eg weechat, is he to download sources and compile himself?
asciilifeform: the simplest method is that he requests it, here in the chan
