« first day (2086 days earlier)      last day (2923 days later) » 

9:01 PM
@Serg indeed. though, i've been in the top 3 since shortly after primary voting opened, I think?
not sure. But meh
still, may the best candidate win :)
 
You were 3rd , but now you squeezed in between Jacob and terdon there. I thought those guys wont have any competition whatsoever
 
heh
well, terdon's been at the top since it opened so
:P
 
yeah i just wonder why all of you did some kind of late minute nomination
 
it looks like the Stack Exchange API doesn't expose data for the elections?
 
@Videonauth work is evil?
@Videonauth didn't even know it was open, otherwise was busy
as happens from time to time in the IT world :)
 
9:04 PM
wel i have time all day long, but as it looks now i wont make it anyways :) even if it would have given me something to do
 
I did late nomination because I am usually unsure and hesitant
It takes me a lot of time to make up my mind
 
had I known a few days earlier it was open, I probably would have put my nomination in earlier heh
 
And probably I won't do something unless it's for a joke or "just to see"
Like my application to SUSE internship
 
heh
 
@Videonauth Definitely!
 
9:06 PM
goes back to poking python-pymssql packages
 
Without "whatever, I'll do it for the lulz" I wouldn't have posted it
 
dont get me wrong, i wont hold grudges :)
 
As for nomination, well . . . I was just curious how ready I am to take up my AskUbuntu game a notch
 
@TheBrownOne Yes... Surprised?
 
thats what i said as well, and made @Seth reacti with "-.-" as i said even if i wont make it then i was in for the lulz
 
9:07 PM
I guess me being #5 through out the primaries means i am doing not too bad , but there's a lot to learn i still have
lulz , making the world go round since 1999
 
for a two months old account still being in the top 10 i think i have doen good as well
but wela ll will see when the pool is closed
 
user139252
@Fabby No, happy :D
 
that's actually quite impressive @Videonauth
 
i even have more particiption basges as some people being 5 years on the site already
just earned today one more
 
@Videonauth My rep really started climbing when I lost my job...
 
9:10 PM
close to the electorate too, and to my second seward badge which i will even get before the election is over
 
And it really started declining after I found one!
(lucky me, because my Ask Ubuntu Profile was on my CV)
Nowadays, I should take my AU profile off my CV.... @Shog9
 
@Fabby maybe you should combine both ? find a job at StackOverflow :D
 
well i had a long talk on monday with my doctor and it seems that i might be able to get a light betterment in my situation, but might never be able to work again
 
@Videonauth :O
Well, I'm working remotely...
 
@Videonauth not even remote work ? over internet ?
 
9:12 PM
(there are those kinds of jobs: it doesn't really matter where you are)
 
yeah hat wold be something for me too, my problem is for apllying and so on you have to attend meetings
 
Conference calls...
Skype calls, WebEx Meetings...
 
Skype , like Fabby does ?
 
@Serg @fabby, the problem im only a computer hobbyist for 27 years , what they really want to see is certificates for being able to wipe your ass via command line and more
 
We'll talk Friday, but you should send me your CV: If you're a Network Engineer, you can get a job anywhere.
 
9:15 PM
well at least im a fast leaner, might be able to adapt to many stuff
 
Network engineers work from home nowadays...
The time they had to plug in cables is long gone.
Storage Architect is another one
Actually, I might still have my copy: I'll send it to you.
 
@Videonauth Also, remember the courses Seth posted ?
cybrary
 
yeah @fabby but we ight have to find a solution to quill more urgend fires first
 
cybrary.it
 
i have then bookmarked @Serg
 
9:18 PM
@Videonauth Yeah...
 
Free courses for certifications ,might be useful
 
SMOKE! BRB...
 
yeah, im new in the linux world, but let me tell you what gave me the most valuable insigth till now
it was trying building a linux from sratch
which is till fail :p
hard part is the testing, i build it on y 128GB USB stick but i bnot found a way qet to load a VirtualBox from an USB image
would mamke testing it quite a bit easier
 
@Videonauth you tried LFS?
 
?? doesnt ring a bell so i would say no
 
9:22 PM
you said building linux from scratch, so the first thing i thought was linuxfromscratch.org
 
yep thast what im going for
 
That's way more advanced that anything I've done so far
 
from this i gained more insight about the linux file stucture as from anything else
I dont know how often i started over, right now im again running the pass 3 of the gcc 5 compilations and test for making the toolchains
 
I just hope that comptia certificate will open me doors at least to some jobs. Because , essentially, i don't have any options right now. And being lab technician is still some money and some line on a resume but . . . .I'm essentially nobody still
 
user136984
Right, well I think I've finally completed the questionnaire to my satisfaction, just need to read it through one more time! :)
 
9:29 PM
Sigh . . .. those 3 weeks in China were so peaceful. Back to existential crisis again
How in the world i even passed level 4 of hsk test ?
 
other way to land a job in the linux world, as @ThomasW. might be able to confirm is doing a great white hat hack, whic is really noticable
but that can backfire as well
 
@Videonauth hm?
actually
linux sysadmin jobs are on the rise and in more demand
what with M$ Windows servers being pricey and pricey
 
@NathanOsman how about Apple sysadmins ? ^
Is there any worth in learning Apple anyway ?
 
@Serg you would have to offer me at least 90% of all appple shares to take that job :p
 
Hold on , let me take out my pen and pencil , i'll draw those shares real quick
sigh . . . 6 years in college , basically that counts as nothing . . . I've no certificates to my name, no degree, no experience ( except for restaurant, bookstore for 1.5 months, and lab tech )
 
9:36 PM
@ThomasW. Thats how a friend of mine landed a job at norton, he hacked their system, put his application as a cyber security expert on top of the stack in their HR departments and declined all other applicaions.
 
Meanwhile, my best friend's boyfriend basically dropped out ( I think, because she doesn't really know herself what her boyfriend does ) and is now a web developer in some Denver upstart
Life is a weeeeird thing

9:42 PM
if we would live in the world of shadowrun, I'm most certainly would be a decker
 
@ParanoidPanda So let me get this clear: you've been doing bug-fixes for Gnome , right ?
You're also doing vulnerability research for Gnome and Ubuntu right ?
And also answering and asking questions on AU ?
Have you created any scripting answers here on AU by the way ?
 
scratch that answering ;) he has a higher asking count as i have as as answer count ;)
 
Questioning is also contribution to the site , it makes our brains ponder the mysterious nature of this unique Ubuntu user
 
well but the answer is anyway always 42
 
Nah, in panda's case the answer is "He's just paranoid"
 
9:48 PM
how can pandas be paranoid
 
We'd need to ask one about that

hello onebree
 
i did misread it as meth lab...

I gotta FIX THAT OTHER LAB TOO :p
 
@onebree oh, that one was yours ? YAll be famous
 
user136984
@Serg: Yes, I do do bug fixing for GNOME as well as vulnerability research into the both that you mentioned (in fact even before I started using Ubuntu I was finding quite severe security vulnerabilities in Microsoft software etc). I'm sure I've done some here scripts before, but not too recently apart from for myself, but I'll have a look later if you are interested. :)
 
user136984
9:56 PM
@onebree: Pandas get paranoid due to debambooforestation.
 
@ParanoidPanda So . . . .what's stopping you for applying for Ubuntu membership ?????
"Contributions are valued and recognised whether you contribute to artwork, any of the LoCoTeams, documentation, the forums, the answers tracker, IRC support, bug triage, translation, development and packaging, marketing and advocacy or anything else."
am I right or what ?
 
user136984
Well, the main reason is because you need a wiki page... And for me to update my wiki page I need Ubuntu Membership... :D
 
wat ?
Create a new wiki page maybe ?
 
user136984
You can't do that either without membership, they changed the rules due to large amounts of spam.
 
@Serg He cant even if he has an account on the community wiki
 
user136984
9:58 PM
Unless you have membership you can't actually do anything there.
 
Anonymous
@ParanoidPanda i did not ask why thery are paranoid
 
@ParanoidPanda um . . . maybe ask an existing member to do that for ya ?
 
user136984
I don't really know any existing members...
 
@onebree but I did
 
user136984
That I know of anyway.
 
9:59 PM
@ParanoidPanda @NathanOsman is an ubuntu member
He could help you
 
fossfreedom soon too i guess, seth is one and some more
 
yeah, Oli probably too

does an ubuntu membership cost money?
 
nope

why would someone want a membership

The pros to publishing all my scripts online for this lab are (a) I get to use some Ruby for an otherwise program-free class, and (b) 100% NOT Plagiarized.
 
@Serg hack all the things drink all the booze? sounds good

ok math done... Looking at my list of things... Time for ice cream then history

@onebree Hagen-Dazs Coffee ice cream?
 
Wohoo! Google updated their repo so no more warnings for Google Chrome when you update! :D
 
user139252
Yippee!
 
@Videonauth that can be a good reward for yourself after you finish building linux from scratch?
@Terrance how did you know
 
@edwinksl I am on a mailing list for it. And I just got the email this afternoon. :D
 
@edwinksl in fact it makes me creative
 
10:40 PM
@Terrance awesome. i just checked and apt has indeed stopped complaining about google chrome
 
a few six packs dr.pepper, a few splifs, me and a brainstorming session, this id hoe the most of my scripts where born
 
hi fokes
 
@Videonauth hoe? lol
 
@edwinksl Yep, that is the one. When you Star it you get all the updates while they happen in your email.
 
10:44 PM

@Videonauth big difference ;)
 
i guess i should close the laptop, the sleeping pills are kicking in

@TheBrownOne how does one fix a lonely server?

Add more people to it.
 
Oh I know...it is a rpi right? build a cluster!
 
user139252
No, this one is a 4GB memory Lubuntu box.
 
Oh...well can you build a cluster with Lubuntu?
 
JS anyone? JS?
 
11:12 PM
Java Script?
 
@Zacharee1 Barely. Is it complex what you want?
 
yes
 
Then I'm probably not very helpful. You might let me try though if you want.
 
I have multiple strings of text that I want to prevent to client from actually seeing. They are API keys for a JQuery request.
Do you know PHP maybe?
Because the request will also work with PHP, NodeJS, Go, Python, cURL, and a few more
I need some way to get the data from the API in a way that doesn't expose the API keys
This is the query code (without the tokens/keys):
jQuery.ajax({
    url: "https://static.pufferpanel.com:5656/server",
    type: "GET",
    headers: {
        "X-Access-Server": "xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx",
        "X-Access-Token": "xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx",
    },
})
.done(function(data, textStatus, jqXHR) {
    console.log("HTTP Request Succeeded: " + jqXHR.status);
    console.log(data);
})
.fail(function(jqXHR, textStatus, errorThrown) {
    console.log("HTTP Request Failed");
})
.always(function() {
    /* ... */
});
 
use environment variables?
 
11:16 PM
?
I don't know PHP and I barely know JS
idk how I would integrate NodeJS with a web page
 
Oops, sorry for the delay. Crappy WiFi.
 
@ByteCommander you need one of my WAPS...

@Zacharee1 why do you need php and js?

This room today... O_o
I don't think it's ever been this busy before.
 
Oh epic win...Google photos has a timeline along the side of it now...
(and if it has been there I have never noticed it.)
 
@onebree API keys I want to keep private. I either need a way for a PHP file to send the output of the API data to JS or a way for PHP to replace the JS
I've made a PHP file with a script(?) but it just downloads it when I visit it
 
@Zacharee1 apache server ?
 
nginx

@Zacharee1 are you using Heroku or some similar service?

Okay,
 
Ah . . ., apache has some configs in /etc where you define php to be read, maybe nginx has the same thing

@Zacharee1 check this out: github.com/vlucas/phpdotenv

It was the first hit on "php dotenv"
 
I have no idea what that is or how to use it
 
Anonymous
11:30 PM
Basically, dotenv is good because no API keys are checked into source code. Instead, it reads it from the environment variables on that system
 
So I could use NodeJS to get the API data and store it in environment variables
 
Anonymous
I mean, you can do this yourself I am sure.. export SOME_API_KEY=xyz123, then reference that env variable in your program somehow. (IDK how to in PHP)
 
then have PHP read those environment variables?
neither do I but I have to go for a bit

I guess. IDK node or php

Overall, you scored as follows:
1% scored higher (more nerdy),
0% scored the same, and
99% scored lower (less nerdy).

Q: Calculating the total traffic generated by an application in a network

obiigbe91 I have network (shown above) with the same application (Appx) running on the nodes (Linux nodes). This Appx has data to send the same copy of the Appx running in each node (i.e. each Appx generates data to send to every other Appx). I will like to calculate the total traffic in the network that...

@NathanOsman I do have autotools installed.
 
oh I guess it didn't stop loading them entielrely...
long story short use Ubuntu 16.04 for your server ;)
 
Well... it depends on what you need.
16.04 is still quite fresh.
All my servers (except for the Discourse one) run 14.04 still.
And with numbers like this... who wants to upgrade?
