Fine, I give up.
I changed the colour a bit, though.
@Ward You just have to be different. -.-
@Ward Oh, and Canada: WUBWUBWUB
Clipboards. How do they even work
Actually, I kind of like that so I'll leave it unedited.
@WesleyDavid I are a unique-ish snowflake!
@Ward So precious.
You're adorkable!
12:20 AM
Oooh, Derpy from Hell!
Rats, I forgot to change the DOFH colour to the slightly darker^H^H^H^H^H^H more evil shade.

This is why I love @Womble:
Q: What software can help me simulate a network?

BruceI wish to simulate a large campus network which contains routers, switches and hosts. What softwares can help me simulate different topologies and measure bandwidth, delay, congestion, link utilization and other parameters

"Tell me all the things!" style question. Ready the nukes:
Q: Recover Exchange 2007 DB (have log files)

Josh RI'm looking for a tutorial or steps to restore an Exchange DB. I had to recover our server using an image a few days old, this has an Exchange DB missing a few days worth of mail. Before I restored our server I copied the entire current Exchange directory off the broken server. There is no circu...

Muhahaha!!! @ChrisS has joined our ranks!
moar detail!
Q: When I restart my virtual enviorment it does not re-bind to the IP address

RoboTamerThe IP does no longer respond to a remote ping With restart I mean: lxc-stop -n vm3 lxc-start -n vm3 -f /etc/lxc/vm3.conf -d -- /etc/network/interfaces auto lo iface lo inet loopback up route add -net netmask dev lo down route add -net netmask dev lo...

Yeah, the downvote is mine.
3:15 AM
@WesleyDavid Yes, Iain's right. I think I've found maybe 3-4 good cPanel questions. Most are a nasty case of "HALP! My server's broken and I've not go Clue #1 WTF I should do about it!!!1!"
Welcoming to the Borkination.
I see 'thinice' just got chewed up and spit out by ErikA.
Yeah, that was the exciting dust-up for the weekend.
Not the first time he's copped an attitude though.
@WesleyDavid So why exactly are we all to be changing our gravatars?
@Adrian Because BOFH!!
I think it started with Chopper3 and/or Iain. Something about bleeding people out in front of their loved ones
3:30 AM
Seriously, is it that difficult to press Shift when typing "I"??!
@mgorven i guess so.
Also hard to press the space bar.
@mgorven: probably, I'm terrible about that. I also think using a capital I when I mean myself in the middle of a sentence seems pretentious, so I avoid doing so in informal writing. (I make the effort on the SE sites tho, cause people keep complaining about it politely ;p) (posted after hunting down, and applying capital punishment to stray is)
@JourneymanGeek How's things in Singaporeland?
busy busy still
hopefully things will calm down after july
Needed a meta post about it:
Q: BOFH Gravatar Week

WardThis is your chance to show your true colours... Use the (semi-) official Bastard Operator From Hell Gravatar for a week or a while. I don't think there's any particular reason, it just seemed like a good idea.

3:51 AM
@Adrian Favorite motorcycle?
WTF, this guy just reposted his closed question
Q: How to make apache to point to my IP address?

@WesleyDavid Doesn't go so well, hey
@ward, it's up to you to post all these avatars to your thread. I am a lazy cat after all. =)
No way, I'll just link to here.

Anyone else?
@freiheit @Holocryptic @pauska @voretaq7 @JourneymanGeek You need to check here:

@freiheit What will they think on bicycles.SE ?...
@Ward Nothing, because that's only my gravatar on SF
@freiheit What the... I didn't know you could have site-specific gravatars...
@Ward It's easy. Just have site-specific email-addresses.
Though, it is time for a cycling avatar update... I trimmed that beard off when the weather warmed up...
4:44 AM
@Zoredache Maybe a different colour to complement your Z...
Anal-retentive? Or just OCD?
@Ward Yes?
@ShaneMadden ^^
5:00 AM
@WesleyDavid sweet.
@lucas You get to choose. ServerFault or Twitter avatar?
5:12 AM
If chat ever updates
@ShaneMadden I see your new avatar.
5:25 AM
I was looking forward to seeing Shane's "Not Food" cantelope/rock...
The first one ;)
I'm sure it means something (bad) to have so many of the top voters doing the BOFH Gravatar...
And done
well, it hasn't loaded yet, but it will
Everyone hits refresh like a gerbil on speed...
thar we go
5:36 AM
Horns suit you!
How's things @Ward?
Same old same old.
sounds a blast
June is always crazy busy with end-of-year events for my kid's school.
Yeah, I remember that from when I worked the schools
5:41 AM
If it would just stop fucking raining, it'd be fun - field trips, bike rides, but instead we get hail storms.
But better hailstones than gallstones...
(see what I did there? but you probably have kidney stones, oops)
haha, nah, the kidney stones are gone :P
And between then and now, I've somehow managed to pick up a lady friend ;)
5:55 AM
So clearly, the world will end in December.
@Iain See what you caused?
@Holocryptic According to the Mayans...
@Ward :)
@Ward Yeah. I don't care what they think anyways. They're dead. And I've got a woman.
Jan 13 at 20:13, by Iain
@pfo I listened to a radio program recently that suggested this was new-aged twaddle. The main reason being that this is only the end of the 13th Bak'tun and 13 has no relevance to the Myans whereas to Myan's the 20th Bak'tun would be significant.
6:04 AM
I've no idea what that is, but I'll take your word for it.
how goes ?
good good
great, really
6:57 AM
@WesleyDavid ty, Im going with SF :p

Q: CCNA: OSPF adjency over Framerelay

Lucas KauffmanI set up framerelay and I can successfully ping from R1 to R2. The problem I'm having is that there aren't OSPF advertisements. I explicitly stated broadcast when mapping the IP's. Here are my configs: R1: interface Serial0/0 ip address encapsulation frame-relay ip...

So is VMWare ESXi 5 software iSCSI terribly unstable?
Lost access to volume 4e87194c-9fa4b194-5089-
1cc1de6cd992 (XXX) due to connectivity
issues. Recovery attempt is in progress and
outcome will be reported shortly.

Q: Bandwidth and hard drive space for url shortener

NickWhat is a good bandwidth and hard drive space for a url shortener with high traffic?For example bitly.com or is.gd ...what do their server's specs like?

3 hours later…
8:36 PM
@ewwhite Don't forget that ESXi 5 is really ESXi 4.5 - that's what it was designed for - I actually had beta code called exactly that, it's an evolution of 4 not a new version and although there will be changes to the iSCSI (not my thang I'm sure you'll recall) code I doubt it's significantly less stable than 4.
8:58 PM
@Chopper3 I think I found two issues... buggy Nexenta problems and the wrong subnet mask on my storage switch vlan.
@Iain dafuq, I'd say it's off topic too since he doesn't even seem to bother looking into basic DNS
@Chopper3 But I've had to rebuild one host three times due to problems with swISCSI boot delays and weird timeouts.
@LucasKauffman He's a devops what do you expect
@ewwhite have you tried KVM instead of ESXi :3
@LucasKauffman Yeah, it works like a charm... no issues, bugs or usability problems.
9:01 PM
We are working with openstack and kvm for our bachelors test, a few weeks ago they solved a bug in kvm with hairpin mode for IPv4, this caused a new bug where it's impossible to configure IPv6 because the kernel thinks there are duplicates and constantly deconfiguring the IPv6 addresses
anyone seen that nazis on the moon movie?
@LucasKauffman painful?
@ewwhite I think we opened 3 bugs at launchpad so far
but I have to admit, when it actually works its really fun to play with
"when it works"
yea :p
is that an endorsement?
9:29 PM
@ewwhite It has potential, I mean for a private cloud it's usable if they can get it stable
10:29 PM
Iron sky
is one weird movie
reminds me of space balls
10:42 PM
Q: Disk IO slow on ESXi, even slower on a VM (freeNAS + iSCSI)

varesaI have a server with ESXi 5 and iSCSI attached network storage(4x1Tb Raid-Z on freenas 8.0.4). Those two machines are connected to each other with Gigabit ethernet. The raid-z volume is divided into three parts: two zvols, shared with iscsi, and one directly on top of zfs, shared with nfs and sim...

I started to answer, but think that whatever I write will be a lost cause.
