@faheemmitha the thing I like best is the $100 credit I got for having a .edu email address.
 
@casey Credits are nice.
 
12:26 AM
@faheemmitha very easy setup, ipv6, PTR records reverse DNS. Scalable plans from $5/month. No complaints from me so far.
 
12:59 AM
@casey Ok. The current plan I have for ramnode is $5 per month. How much are you paying?
 
1:13 AM
@derobert remember this one? bugs.debian.org/744275
According to Norbert, there was "no bug here, just abuse of the system". He fixed it anyway. Without further explanation.
 
@faheemmitha I have the minimal plan. 1 core, 0.5 GB ram, 20 GB ssd storage and 1 TB transfer. Billed at $0.007/hour to a max of $5/month.
 
@FaheemMitha Debian must have good reasons to break backwards compatibility
 
@casey Do they freak out if your VPS goes haywire and starts running at capacity for no reason? Or has it never come up? I took a look at the DG terms of use. Quite disturbing. Though I can't recall if I've looked at the RN one. Maybe just as bad.
@Braiam What?
 
Haven't run into that.
 
@casey ok
 
1:20 AM
For big jobs I'd probably go with Google's compute engine. At least for the jobs I can't run on Yellowstone.
 
In blog.flameeyes.eu/2009/10/a-shared-library-by-any-other-name it says "uses the NEEDED entries in the .dynamic section of the ELF file". Any idea how to look that up / query that?
@casey Sure. How much does that cost? What service is that?
objdump -x works. possibly overkill
 
1:36 AM
@casey Thanks. The pricing looks relatively reasonable.

@derobert rename it to format-command?

@FaheemMitha yep, I'd call it reasonable as well. It would cost me on the order of $2.50 to run one my simulation cases on google compute and $3 or so to download the data. For 100 cases that would be $550 and I'm sure the grant award for yellowstone values my awarded core hours at much more than that for the same amount of work / transfer.
 
@casey Probably true.
 
especially since just applying for compute time on yellowstone in general requires you are funded on an NSF grant in the first place. High barrier to entry.
 
3:01 PM
and oops, I only estimated my cost with 16 cores and the runtime of 64 :) It would actually cost me $10 to run a case and $3 to transfer the data. So $13/case and $1300 for 100 cases. Still not too bad.

Are you by chance using a machine translator? Is impossible to understand what you are trying to do or how. — Braiam 15 mins ago
that was my thought as well
 
4:14 PM
@casey Well, the omnibus installer can be configured to play nice with some other things, e.g., to use a system postgres instance or nginx instance, I think. It looks like otherwise it mostly stays out of the way.
@Braiam I guess, though I think that'll be the only instance of said tag.
Also of course unfortunately generic... I suspect there are other, unrelated, format commands out there.
I just struck it off.
