theblazehenhi Kilos 14:11
Kiloshi theblazehen 14:20
Kiloswhats news by you14:20
Kilosmeeting monday evening hey14:21
theblazehennot much. I know14:21
theblazehenordered a couple vps's a few days ago14:21
theblazehenmining litecoin on them14:21
Kilosmagespawn: you still at work?14:21
magespawnyup but busy studying14:22
Kilosah sorry14:22
magespawnno worries14:22
magespawnaudio so i can type and listen to the lecture as the same time14:23
magespawntheblazehen: read an article that basically said that was not worth while14:23
magespawncost of vp versus value of litecoins gained14:24
theblazeheni ake about $1 a month14:25
SquirmI'd rather mine Bitcoin14:26
magespawnthe dollar value of those are like a yoyo14:29
SquirmI'm running dd, copying a partition to another partition. do you think it'll work?14:30
magespawnwhy not?14:30
Squirmor do I have to align partition tables or something14:30
magespawnshould work fine14:30
theblazehenSquirm, I convert it to BTC14:30
magespawndo not know about that14:31
theblazehenbut LTC is ore efficient on cpu14:31
Squirmdd if=/dev/sda4 of=/dev/sdb1 bs=1M14:31
magespawntheblazehen: are litecoins easier to mine14:31
magespawnlooks okay to me but inetpro would know more14:31
theblazehenmagespawn, less beginner friendly, but easy enough. If you only have a cpu available you make about 10x more profit14:31
magespawnmmm might take a look then14:32
magespawnhave a few spare pcs to dedicate14:32
SquirmI'm busy pulling bit together to put up a little CentOS server14:34
SquirmI really, really would like an HP Microserver though14:34
theblazehenmagespawn,  build minerd from these instructions: https://www.litecoinpool.org/help then register at http://ltc.nushor.net/ you can then run the miner with ./minerd -o http://ltc.nushor.net:8998 -u $name_of_worker,defaults_to_username.x -p $password,defaultis_x14:35
magespawncool ty theblazehen14:35
Squirmtheblazehen: what's the CPU usage like?14:36
theblazehenSquirm, as high as you let it14:36
theblazehenbut you can always run it with nice14:36
SquirmI mean, thinking of running it in the background or something14:36
theblazehenDo it al the time on my netbook14:37
theblazehenyou can see their status on theblazehen.com14:37
Squirmmy office machine is up all the time14:37
theblazehenSquirm, good14:37
Squirmand the current exchange rate?14:38
theblazehen$1.8 per LTC14:38
magespawnSquirm: one of these http://is.gd/6QtICy ?14:39
Squirmmagespawn: yes14:39
theblazehenltc/usd is 2.5500280914:40
magespawnmmm i have ooggling those for awhile too14:40
Squirmmagespawn: small form factor, low electricity consumption, quiet14:40
magespawnthey are relatively cheep too14:44
Squirmyes they are. But I can't afford to get something like that. It'll sit and I dunno what it will do14:46

charlwb magespawn 18:48
Kilosnight all. sleep tight19:04
Kilosdont forget mondays meet19:04
kbmonkeyman I'm getting hungry again. :)19:08
Squirmplayback never worked :/19:08
Squirmif someone has tried to contact me in the last 4 hours, please state your claim19:08
Squirmmy ZNC usually plays back what I've missed in the channel19:21
charloh i see19:28
charli run irssi inside a screen session on a server so i can just ssh and reattach and use the page up key19:28
charlmany years ago i used psybnc though19:29
Squirmcharl: yeah, not a fan of irssi though. still like some of my gui stuff19:34
Squirmthought of that. haven't seen it though. I like xChat :)19:35
charlam the opposite of that, i like to try and do as much possible at the console/command line19:35
charli'm busy transitioning from kde to i3 though19:36
charlTonberry_: http://i3wm.org/19:37
magespawni am just getting used to kde19:38
charli have used kde now for 13 years, time for a change19:39
charlnot constantly though, i have been on gnome and openbox for a while too19:39
magespawnmmm indeed, i have not even been using linux that long19:41
Squirmcharl: fine, I use the cli as much as possible as well. Am doing my RHCE exam next month. But on a desktop, I like certain things to be gui based19:45
charlrhce - they still have that? interesting19:56
charlit used to be quite a big thing some time ago19:56
charlhaven't heard of it much the last few years though19:56
charli think it's because most people moved away from redhat but it still gets used in many companies19:57
Squirmcharl: if not RedHat then something like CentOS. Or any linux distro. The concepts pretty much stay the same. The packages are pretty much available across all distros19:57
charlyeah even oracle linux uses the same packages, also based on redhat19:58
charlsame as what ubuntu is based on debian19:58
SquirmCentOS = RedHat19:59
Squirmit's a package for package clone19:59
SquirmRH is still opensource, so the CentOS guys just compile the RH packages with the CentOS logos, etc20:00
magespawnand the linux certification is based on CentOS20:00
charlhahaha, i wonder why people still use redhat then, perhaps just for support20:00
Squirmyeah, it's the support you pay for20:00
Squirmwhich is meant to be pretty good20:00
SquirmI enjoy RH20:01
Lil-|^Red~OT |Meanwhile in Nigeria ^_^ :::::::: || http://motherlandnigeria.com/games/ayo.html :::: END20:01
Squirmvery clean distro20:01
charlobvious spam is obvious20:02
Vince-0ya wot, 20:02
charlabout redhat, we also use it at work, but considering we never make use of the support, i wonder why20:02
Vince-0dunno why anyone would spam that20:02
magespawnbit like running into a room shouting a word or sentance and then running out20:02
magespawncharl: maybe because it is proven20:03
Squirmmagespawn: CentOS = RedHat20:03
Squirmexcept without the support20:03
charlmagespawn: proven? :)20:03
charlcentos is also pretty proven imho20:04
Vince-0ya most software is tested with Centos20:04
charli used centos for the first time probably like 7 years back20:04
Vince-0Scientific Linus is binary compatible with RH i think20:04
Squirmcause it's RedHat :p20:04
SquirmVince-0: probably cause it's based on CentOS20:05
charllots of people use fedora instead, but afaik fedora is much more on the cutting edge20:07
charlso you perhaps get less stability20:07
charlbut you do get newer versions of the software quicker20:07
SquirmI didn't enjoy Fedora20:08
magespawncharl: as in all those other people use it so it must be okay for us20:08
Squirmit broke easily20:08
Squirmfelt... clunky20:08
charlcan't say i have had much negative experience with fedora myself20:08
charlthe only thing i had was some issues with graphics card drivers on nvidia but that's nothing out of the ordinary20:08
charli had to replace nouveau with some binary drivers but that was a number of years ago20:09
SquirmI'd definitely have CentOS/RH as a server. I am really enjoying Mint MATE on my desktop20:09
charli assume nouveau is up to scratch now20:09
charli use ubuntu 12.10 for both desktop and server now, although at work i mostly run the latest lts release 12.04 on servers20:10
charlbut for my personal server i try and stay on the latest release20:11
charlit's nice running exactly the same on both desktop and server because all the packages are the same etc20:11
charlat work you obviously don't "just" upgrade servers :)20:11
Squirmwe were running Fedora, squid was unstable, the server was unstable. After I went on the RH course, I asked if I could test CentOS, just to see if it helped20:14
Squirmwe haven't had a problem yet20:14
magespawni try to keep all my stuff on LTS, but the desktops in the shop are on 12.1020:14
Vince-0I run Fedora17 at work laptop which is pretty usable without graphics, Centos on servers20:14
Vince-0I've takend a liking to Enlightenment DE20:14
magespawnahh the wonders of open source choice20:15
Squirmso many choices20:15
Squirmso many preferences20:15
magespawnawesome stuff20:15
Vince-0see Google's recent fork of Webkit as Blink?20:15
Vince-0gonna get more choice in browsers20:16
SquirmI may stick to Chrome20:16
Squirmwaiting for my Nexus 4. Then I can sync everything to my phone as well :P20:17
Vince-0not to mention the recent forks made for Ubuntu graphics 'nstuff20:17
Vince-0yaa chrome is nice for that20:17
Vince-0the only thing it lacks is a decent tab grouper20:17
SquirmFirefox does it too20:17
Squirmhmm, tab grouper20:17
Squirminteresting idea.20:18
Vince-0too many tabs, firefox just puts em in boxes and remembers it for next time20:18
Squirmmeh. I have to install windows on a machine. but cause i'm home I only have 1 set of everything20:19
Squirmand my laptop isn't here20:19
Squirmwell, parents place20:19
Squirmso bbl20:21
Vince-0please excuse the long URL, my firefox tabs20:23
Vince-0chrome add-ons claim to do group tabs but naay20:25
magespawnwow thought  i used a lot, but i have never had that happen20:25
Vince-0I like to keep em open for particular subjects20:26
kbmonkeywow Vince-0, that is insane. I have no more than 5 at any time20:26
Vince-0oh, kinda replaced bookmarks and just keep em there so I can see where I was last at20:27
kbmonkeyholy crud, it's past dinner time XD20:27
Vince-0yar its like almost midnight snack time20:27
kbmonkeyI'm a sucker for minimalism. https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/18686471/images/2013-04-13.22341365885296.png20:38
