not sure if that's the right time
yep that's right
@bwDraco looks like there was an HTTPError
 
404 on https://chat.stackoverflow.com/ws-auth? What?
 
and nocrash.py detected the exit code as "bad" and then attempted to restart again. If it had failed that, say, 5 times or more, or w/e it is the bot would've died off and a standby instance brought into active state.
@bwDraco happens every once in a while
no idea why
but it happens every once in a while.
 
That is weird...
 
that's CE being stupid
as I've said before, the python library we use called ChatExchange (aka CE) for the chat connections is its own piece of black magic sorcery
it works, but how it works is weird, and not understandable to mere mortals :p
 
3:08 AM
@ThomasWard If twice in a row, it reverts.
    elif ecode == 4:
        count += 1
        log('Incremented crash count: {}; sleeping before restart'.format(count))
        sleep(5)

        if crashcount == 2:
            log('Crash count triggered reverted state')
            if 'windows' not in str(platform.platform()).lower():
                git.checkout('HEAD~1')
            else:
                warn('Not reverting; we are on Windows')

            count = 0
            crashcount = 0

        else:
            crashcount += 1
 
ah right. I forgot that part. There's also a hard exit code somewhere, I just don't remember where it is.
@bwDraco it's been a while since I went into the nocrash.py
because it "just works", I've never had any reason to go in and check it recently :P
 
I see nothing in the nocrash.py that exits based on the crash count.
 
that's not where the hard crash code is :P
but meh.
i'm tired... blurgh
 
Server load looks normal now.
I've changed some settings in the Linode Manager to make it email me CPU load warnings on a low threshold. It's above what normal load is during peak hours, but not by much.
Running a routine update. This might result in a brief interruption, but it shouldn't require a failover.

fp- by Mithrandir
 
@Mithrandir Instead of starting over, you can always git reset --hard <state-to-reset-to>
E.g. git reset --hard origin/master
 
I don't exactly know how to use the command line *guilty look*
 
...that might be a bit essential if you want to use git :)
 
9:46 AM
i'm just experimenting at the moment, honestly, and googling stuff
 
There is of course Github desktop which simplifies things a bit, I think JF is actually a contributor to that application
 
That's what they advise using, but... thanks to my brother, I'm using Linux, and now I'm completely out of my depth with that :p
(it doesn't have a Linux option)
 
@Mithrandir I'm surprised by that. It's based on electron, which AFAIK works with all OSes by default
 
I'm looking at desktop.github.com, no Linux option
 
But anyway, sincle you're probably stuck with the command line, I can give you a quick lesson (don't worry, it's not that hard)
@Mithrandir yeah, probably since git operates with the filesystem in some magical way
 
9:49 AM
*grateful sigh* That'd be awesome, thanks :D
 
cd - change directory - you can use that to move to where you want to be
e.g. cd angus will move into a directory called angus within your current directory
 
@Mithrandir "over your head" is a good way to learn fast :)
 
You'll probably want to start in your home directory, which has the shorthand ~
cd .. to move up one directory
pwd (print working directory) will tell you where you are if you get lost
 
Okay, thanks - I'm currently located at /home/<user>
 
Next, we'll clone the repository that you're working with. Go to github, copy the URL that it gives you (the HTTPS one, not SSH, since SSH requires some setup)
Actually, no
On github, fork (basically copy to your own user account - top right hand button)) the repository, then in your own fork copy the clone url (the big green button)
Next, run git clone <url>
 
9:53 AM
I already (forked and) cloned it, with Google's help - and then made the edits I needed to from the file editor itself. Now I need to commit it with a specific commit message, and then create a pull request to the original app.

@SmokeDetector k
 
Except that I have no idea how to make the changes I made from the file editor (adding a folder with screenshots) change the stuff on Git.
 
Okay. Git basically has 3ish areas - your working tree, which has your current changes in the files, a staging area (where you tell git which files you want to commit), and commited files
To add your new screenshots to the staging area, run git add <foldername or filename>
Or if you want to add all the changes you have, run git add *
Next, run git status, and make sure that only the files that you want to commit are listed in green
 
like, literally git add * or am I supposed to replace the * with something?
