ben_vulpes: asciilifeform: are the rockchips physically identifiable by IP?
ben_vulpes: BingoBoingo: please coordinate with asciilifeform on extracting the usb-ttl cables from phuctor for two rockchip customers
lobbes: btw ben_vulpes, in light of my spiffy new pizarro rockchip box, I don't think I'll need my shell going forward (and I got to pinch every bitcent). Feel free to reclaim my space once my period runs out (I think I was monthly); I dun have anything on there I need to save
ben_vulpes: lobbes: rockchip invoice fired; ping me when you pay it and i'll forward creds
mod6: (six because that's how many rockchips are availible -- for the readers sake)
ben_vulpes: we plug it into a rockchip, and they...what?
mod6: And if not, perhaps, they must buy the FG. If they do buy the FG, and they discontinue their rental of the rockchip, how do we keep track of the FG for them, or send it to them, or ... wire it into full 1U/2U?
mod6: re this thread : http://logs.bvulpes.com/trilema?d=2018-5-1#346513 << Any thoughts ben_vulpes ? I guess my first question: Since we only allow for rental of the rockchip, should we allow for the rental of the FG if one wishes to attach one to it? And if so, at what rate?
asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: i recommend to practice on a (unoccupied) rockchip first
asciilifeform: simplest method, run 'date' on your local box, then date -s 'whateveryougot' on the rockchip.
mod6: Can anyone help me here -- I'm just trying to emerge ViM on rockchip. Running this `emerge -v app-editors/vim`, there are 7 parts to this build. And it's been building the 4th package (ctags) for 2 days now.
asciilifeform: and likewise you gotta manually agree with people to run services on external port on that thing. whereas on rockchip, you are own admin, have own root, own ip.
mats: i ask because the monthly cost seems incredibly low compared to rockchip rental
mats: can i get an invoice for 1 q of rockchip service, a tar of the image, and build instructions for that image?
mod6: Get in the wot amigo, so you can get yourself a rockchip. Will rate ya upon registration.
ben_vulpes: at least reg a key and rent a rockchip eh
ben_vulpes: namenick12: reg a key, rent a shell or rockchip?
namenick12: hola. have a nit pick [21:12:45] · <mircea_popescu> ben_vulpes, so then, invoice me for 75 * 4 + 50 an' send the boy his details ? seems to be for 4 months yet you called it a year [21:31:19] · <deedbot> Invoiced mircea_popescu 0.04344809 << 1 rockchip @ pizarro, april 19 2018 -- april 19 2019 . namenick12 not good at maffs, but...
trinque: by chance did a rockchip or something come up with same IP?
mod6: I'm excited for the rockchip boxen. Thanks for getting that working and transported. :]
ascii_lander: ben_vulpes, mod6 : at yer earliest leisure, plox to begin calculating a pricing scheme for rockchip, and likewise for rockchip + $feature (e.g. FG, possibly later point, extra disk space, etc)
ascii_lander: ben_vulpes: plox to confer with BingoBoingo at yer earliers convenience re ip alloc for rockchip boxen
ben_vulpes: i'm racking my head for any other last minute items you might need to get these machines together. got the raid card, snake for the drives, fgs...pcengines and rockchips...
asciilifeform: given as there will be NO ipkvm service for rockchip boxen
mimisbrunnr: Logged on 2018-04-07 05:33 Vexual: any idea on cost to rent an rockchip board?
PeterL: hi guys. Did you say anything yet about what the cost of the rockchip boxes would be compared to the shared server?
