danielpbarron: mod6, http://wotpaste.cascadianhacker.com/pastes/mY301/?raw=true
Vexual: rb subscription is 75*3 quarterly. what's that in real money? consumables is sd+usb stick?
ben_vulpes: ~0.03341478 and yes
Vexual: +50 one time right?
ben_vulpes: right. covers one ssd swap per year.
ben_vulpes: need moar, buy moar. ssd wear is entirely on the customer.
Vexual: sounds fair
ben_vulpes: Vexual: reg a key and ask for one if you're serious
Vexual: ah, wot only huh?
Vexual: i'd prolly ask for two if i was serious
ben_vulpes: what, registering a key is a turnoff?
ben_vulpes: mod6 asciilifeform we don't rent to 'nobodies' without a key, right?
Vexual: no, twas expected
danielpbarron: you dunno vexual? he's been around as long or longer than me and never regged a key
ben_vulpes: lol danielpbarron i know him as well as one can without having a key on the other end
danielpbarron would be very surprised if he finally registered a key
ben_vulpes: or swapping fluids
Vexual: i like you ben, but that ain't happening
ben_vulpes: at least reg a key and rent a rockchip eh
Vexual: imma get some on the bench and have a looksee
mod6: Vexual!
Vexual: hola m0d6
mod6: :]
mod6: Get in the wot amigo, so you can get yourself a rockchip. Will rate ya upon registration.
mod6: <@ben_vulpes> mod6 asciilifeform we don't rent to 'nobodies' without a key, right? << Affirmitive.
Vexual: mebbe you oughta just offer a discount. plently of floors vacant
Vexual: also are you accepting usd?
mod6: < Vexual> mebbe you oughta just offer a discount. plently of floors vacant << board has decided on wot-only. maybe we re-visit this later.
mod6: maybe it stays that way forever. depends on how things go.
Vexual: there's advantages for both sides
mod6: < Vexual> also are you accepting usd? << I believe we are, ya. Not sure we have a suitable interface. ben_vulpes, thoughts?
ben_vulpes: not that this is a terrific barrier; register a key, what.
ben_vulpes: not afaik mod6
mod6: ah, ok. coins only, at least for now.
ben_vulpes: why would we, runs contrary to the whole point of everything
mod6: just thought maybe we'd said we would before, but i may be mis-remembering.
mod6: Vexual: if you need to buy some coins, im sure someone would do cash-in-the-mail or whatever for ya.
Vexual: no, it's just your web says 75/100
mod6: true.
ben_vulpes: priced in is not paid in
Vexual: and it seems use need usd, so...
ben_vulpes: not in fifties and hundreds
mod6: I suppose when we get a landing page on our website we should have prices in btc, automatically converted on page load to btc from current BTC/USD VWAP
ben_vulpes: mod6: from whence the price signal though
ben_vulpes: maybe some day, but for now hand-cranked quotes are working
mod6: well, we could easily have a cron job that curls down the vwap once a day from any number of sites (lots of these have apis to grab from), write that value out to a file, then the webservice will suck that value in and calculate.
mod6: or if that's not tasteful, could be another manner, whatever is suitable.
mod6: http://p.bvulpes.com/pastes/7gNjU/?raw=true
Vexual: also, if we need more than one, can we spec different floors? alf or someone might go in chucking elbows
mod6: sorry, plz elaborate on 'spec different floors'? not sure what you're referring to.
Vexual: ideally they'd be on different power supplies
mod6: ahh. hmm, i don't have a solid answer for that -- im not sure how everything is currently configured, or how it may be configured in the future. perhaps one of the other gentlemen are better to answer this.
Vexual: all in one rack was my best guess, with more to come
mod6: yeah, im positive everything is in one rack, but i'm not sure how the power sources are configured.
mod6: i'll bet that alf will post pics when he returns
Vexual: i'd like to see dc cat most of all
Vexual: poor pet's prolly wondering when the nice man will return
mod6: danielpbarron: http://p.bvulpes.com/pastes/IRlWt/?raw=true
trinque: asciilifeform: http://www.sybausa.com/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=178 << curious what you think of this.
asciilifeform: trinque: loox like a fakeraid. for what do you want it ?
asciilifeform: diana_coman: were you able to fix the smg box ?
diana_coman: asciilifeform, yes
asciilifeform eats log..
diana_coman: asciilifeform, unrelated: what do you recommend/use for monitoring the raid?
asciilifeform: diana_coman: i normally use tw_cli
asciilifeform bbl, haven't eaten in 24hrs
diana_coman: k, thanks; and pofta buna!
trinque: asciilifeform: how can you tell, for my own education
trinque: these scammers always put "hardware raid" on the things
trinque has a box here he's thinking of raiding up, was wondering whether it's possible with the m.2s or msatas
BingoBoingo: trinque: There are cards available for that, but I am uncertain of their reliability and they aren't exactly hotswap friendly. http://www.thessdreview.com/daily-news/latest-buzz/highpoint-ssd7101a-1-nvme-raid-controller-review-samsung-toshiba-m-2-ssds-tested/
trinque: thanks BingoBoingo, will research moar
asciilifeform: http://logs.bvulpes.com/pizarro?d=2018-4-20#340947 << it's a marvell, and iirc i read the spec for it when looking for pogo datashits
mimisbrunnr: Logged on 2018-04-20 15:55 trinque: asciilifeform: how can you tell, for my own education
asciilifeform: and trinque afaik there's exactly 1 linux-supported iron raid, to this very day -- 3ware
asciilifeform: ( eaten by lsi co , but they're same chip )
asciilifeform: if anybody comes across an iron raid that is a working alternative to 3ware/lsi, i'd like to hear about it asap
asciilifeform: trinque et al ^
trinque: good to know; I didn't know the pickings were so slim
asciilifeform: trinque: they are afaik
asciilifeform: i'd luvv to be eventually proven wrong tho
asciilifeform: iron raid is a great rarity these days; sorta went the way of non-'win'-modems
asciilifeform: today's norm is 'i can't believe it's not raid' crapola.
asciilifeform: ( the notion probably being, 'use cloud, who cares if disk dies' etc )
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: sadly the bus taxi showed up and was not divertable, i ended up dragging the key back to my house
asciilifeform: and your leftovers sadly stayed in hotel.
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: No big deal. Now I get to visit one of those nifty little booths for a spare.
ben_vulpes:  !~ticker --market all
ben_vulpes: !~ticker --market all
lobbes hopes to get vanilla logbot stood up soon. Next step is modifying it to be a tickerbot
ben_vulpes: schmexcellent, lobbes
lobbes: Seems like the key is figuring out triggers on inserts in postgres. Once I do that I should be cookin'
ben_vulpes: lobbes: ask any questions you like, i'm no eight-figure consultant but i can lend a hand with triggers easily
lobbes: Nice. Ty ben_vulpes, I will most likely take you up on that at some point
ben_vulpes: yeah hit me up sooner rather than later, i'm heading out in a bit
lobbes: Ah, I meant more like over this weekend. I still gotta press logbot and test that it indeed is inserting into the database, etc
ben_vulpes: oh sure
ben_vulpes: there are a few ways to set it up, but what i do is use triggers to fire notifications on channels, the payloads of which are the pk for the table on which the insert operation was performed
ben_vulpes: this lets an entirely separate process (on an entirely separate box perhaps, even) listen for inserts, retrieve the row, perform some computation, and then insert into an outbox table for forwarding to irc or performing other side effects
ben_vulpes: you can even make an erlangy crash-only-semantics system out of this, where your logger process never has to do anything but eat from irc and shit into the db, and eat from the outbox and shit into irc while side-effect/response-generator processes can crash at will
ben_vulpes: i don't think logbot as implemented is quite erlang robust though, a listening process i don't think will know about lines logged during the listening processes downtime
ben_vulpes: now what you could do, if the extra tables don't bother you, is maintain another table the listening/responding process maintains to keep track of which lines it's seen and responded to (if necessary)
lobbes: Interesting. This is valuable info to chew on. I'm gonna digest what you said, map it out to myself confirm I get it, and will ask any q's abour what I'm fuzzy on
lobbes: I think I get the gist, though, and it follows with what I was gleaning from reading teh logs on the topic
ben_vulpes: hit me up with questions
