daftykinssounds like you're using the nouveau graphics driver then?00:00
AdriannomAMD Phenom(tm) II X2 555 Processor, 8gb ram00:00
Adriannomwhich one is that?00:00
Adriannomchecking which one now00:01
daftykinsit's the open source nvidia one which'll be in use if you didn't install the nvidia proprietary00:01
daftykinsoh ok that's the official nvidia proprietary one then00:01
Adriannomit's nvidia proprietary00:01
daftykinswas that offered through additional-drivers?00:01
daftykinsif it showed any other versions, i'd be tempted to switch around and experiment00:02
Adriannominterestingly it seems like the problem occurs more frequently with sites like facebook, so i wonder if it's related to any kind of plugin00:02
Adriannomalso it seems to have trouble with fullscreen youtube sometimes00:02
Adriannomon one of my monitors... not the other00:02
Adriannomsorry, i should define trouble... i meant the video is quite choppy fullscreen00:03
Adriannomprobably unrelated i guess00:05
=== Lcawte is now known as Lcawte|Away
Adriannomactually... maybe it's compiz...00:05
daftykinswell fullscreen would try and use accelerated video rendering/decoding00:06
daftykinsthat it certainly could be00:06
daftykinsif it leaves browser windows looking white and empty, that'd be a likely MO00:06
Adriannomdamn gnome fallback for not having an alt-tab :P00:06
Adriannomi'll remove compiz and see if that works, thanks for helping diag daftykins :)00:09
ali1234fnome fallback does have alt-tab00:48
ali1234it's compiz that doesn't - when you use it outside of unity, you bare a totally bare config with no plugins enabled00:49
ali1234also "failure to redraw windows" is a compiz bug too00:50
ali1234specifically one that affects the nvidia driver00:50
daftykinsis it not genuinely worth having the person not quit to keep commenting?00:50

diddledannagios/icinga is noisy when you're reconfiguring stuff00:53
diddledandon't say "use the downtime feature" because I'm setting it up with a new system without losing the old working system until I'm sure they're reporting the same statuses00:54

diddledandamn, the company I work for has run out of IP Addresses in one of our datacentres - we really need to rebalance things08:00
MartijnVdSipv6 time :)08:00
diddledanI keep suggesting it08:01
MartijnVdSwell you won't be getting any more IPs from RIPE08:01
MartijnVdSunless you have an IPv6 transition plan (and even then you get a very small block)08:01
=== msm is now known as Guest64874
diddledanwe need another /28 in each of the two datacentres we colocate in08:05
MartijnVdStime to start writing that transition plan then ;)08:06
shaunoassuming you're getting them from ripe, and not just buying more addresses from the provider08:07
MartijnVdSshauno: that provider should be reluctant as well08:07
diddledanI think we just lease off the datacentre which helps08:07
shaunoI'm kinda curious how transition goes at larger sites.  must be some quiet mayhem08:09

dwatkinsMartijnVdS is very silly and he knows it.08:28
shaunoeg, for the typical multi-node web stack, you don't really need v4 on most machines.  pretty much just the haproxy/nginx frontends?  the application & db servers shouldn't really need it08:28
MartijnVdSdwatkins: On G+ you mean? :)08:30
dwatkinsMartijnVdS: yeah08:32
bigcalmGood morning peeps :)08:32
shaunoreminds me, the ubuntu installer doesn't seem to like it when you only give it a SLAAC address.  slaac+v4 works, dhcpv6+v4 works, and just dhcpv6 works.  but just slaac tells you autoconfiguration failed08:32

davmor2Apparently this year I get to sell our sensible family car and buy a 2 seater mgb gt or an e-type apparently :)10:23
AlanBelldiddledan: sounds like a "wait a bit" issue10:24
mgdmdavmor2: An E-Type? you made of cash? :)10:24
AlanBellmid-life crisis \o/10:24
davmor2mgdm: Hence the mgb gt was listed first10:24

arc__davmor2: Get a mazda rx-810:25
arc__or a audi a310:25
AlanBelldiddledan: I am updating now, no issues10:25

arc__davmor2: My family has a audi a4 estate10:27
diddledanmidlife crises require vintage cars10:27
diddledanor bikes10:27
mgdmI quite fancy a Jensen Interceptor, mostly based on the name10:27
mgdmalso they look quite cool10:27
diddledanif a bike then it needs to fire once every other lamppost. none of this modern japanese poo that sounds like a bumblebee10:28
mgdmthey also stopped making them 7 years before I was born10:28
arc__get a DeLorean DMC-1210:28
mgdmdiddledan: see, my problem with bikes like that is that they constantly sound like they're farting10:28

mgdmdiddledan: probably not10:29
diddledantickover is something like 30 seconds between explosions10:29
diddledanI jest, but that's the idea10:29
davmor2mgdm, diddledan: If I had a choice it would be a BSA model 4 or an a7 bike, an E-type jaguar just cause it's the best looking car EVER!!!! or the poor mans E-type in the mgb gt or at a push a triumph stag10:31
davmor2oh or the mallard obviously thats a bit harder to park10:31
mgdmIt's almost a shame that Jaguar wouldn't lend the James Bond producers an E-Type, so they ended up with the Aston...10:32
mgdmI mean it's a nice car, but it's not an E-Type10:32

mgdmI tend to find premier inns aren't objectionable11:06

MooDooI think you need to be a little clearer, you just asked if someone upgraded mysql today...no i didn't did you?13:18
diddledanI installed two mysql servers today13:18
mibofra_cellI've upgrated to ver 13.04.2 of the package mysql-server-5.5 and I couldn't start mysql from init script alias upstart job, the error log /var/log/mysql/error.log says that mysqld has been tried to start by init script with too much arguments (one of the too much ones is start for the log). So I've donwgraded to ver 13.04.1 version all mysql packages13:23
mibofra_celldiddledan did you experienced something like this?13:24
diddledannope, I'm not sure what you mean by "start for the log"13:26
diddledanmysql is started with `service mysql start` or even more succinctly just `start mysql`13:27
shaunojust to clarify, 12.04 or 13.04?13:29
mibofra_cellI don't remember now the words the log used but anyway it notified me the arguments was extra; after the error was showen first in the output of apt-get I've tried manually to start mysql with both commands but with the same results13:31

daftykins1) Costa - "no sorry you have to have a lid, health and safety"15:59
daftykins2) Woodies (a local one) - sure no problem15:59
brobostigon3) weatherspoons - are you a cheapo ?16:00
daftykinswould they really charge you less not to have one? :>16:00
brobostigonnot a chance.16:00
daftykinswe don't have them over here16:00
brobostigonwow, most places i have been in the uk, have had one.16:01
daftykinsGuernsey isn't the UK :)16:01
brobostigonah, that explains that then :)16:02
daftykinssome of our English vibe facts of late are growing though16:02
daftykinssuch as having two Costa coffee branches16:02
daftykinstwo big supermarkets are now Waitrose owned16:03
brobostigonor too many tesco's.16:03
daftykinsstill haven't got a tesco :)16:03
popeyi flew over guernsey yesterday16:03
daftykinsi used to like their sandwich selection at Uni time16:03

popeygiven it's easyjet16:06
popeysurly staff as usual16:06
daftykinsshocks me how they make you wear a jacket even if you're carrying it16:07
daftykinssuper tight rules16:07
daftykinsi think that was them anyway, flew to Cork in Ireland once16:07
popeyi think they're inconsistent with the application of their rules16:07
daftykinsprobably mind-numbing to enforce16:08
daftykinsthere are still such minor issues coming up in #ubuntu all the time16:28
popeykeep forgetting to re-join #ubuntu16:37
daftykinsit's probably safer to avoid16:38
daftykinsdespite helping for years i still get ops on my ass for the slightest of transgressions16:38
daftykinsoh sorry, did that guy celebrate that i got his issue resolved after he'd slaved on it for 24hrs?16:39

Azelphurhttps://www.dropbox.com/s/5lts9gf3q963p1i/timelapse2.mp4 updated my timelapse again, has sunrise now too :D16:41
MartijnVdSAzelphur: what's the "night light" at 00:1316:42
AzelphurMartijnVdS: that's a street, with street lamps, and cars.16:43
MartijnVdSAzelphur: no in the background16:43
MartijnVdSAzelphur: some sort of cloud outline?16:43
Azelphurhmm, I don't ese anything16:43
MartijnVdSAzelphur: around 0:11 it goes completely dark16:44
AzelphurMartijnVdS: oh hey, you can see the reflection of my room16:44
MartijnVdSthen around 0:13 the backgrouind lights up16:44
popeybah, so many people joining twitter now wwith @popey* names, I keep getting hilighted incorrectly16:44
MartijnVdSthen at 0:15 it goes away16:44
Azelphurthat's my sofa16:44
popeythe same problem aquarius has16:44
popeybut his is more pronounced16:44
MartijnVdSmore.. "Aqute"16:44
aquariusyes indeed it is more pronounced.16:44
Azelphurwill have to do something about the reflection16:45
Azelphurpopey: did you see my popeycam? :P16:45

Azelphurwebcam pointing out the window in my front room16:46
popeydoesnt work here16:46
popeyblack box16:46
Azelphurflash player?16:46
aquariuspopey, you back from hols?16:46
popeyflew back yesterday16:47
aquariuscrap, innit. I am too :)16:47
Azelphurpopey: black box, probably just needs a refresh, flash player breaks for me like that sometimes too16:47
popeytried that16:47
popeyyt works16:48
Azelphurpopey: you can look at the time lapse video instead from the webcam, https://www.dropbox.com/s/5lts9gf3q963p1i/timelapse2.mp4:P16:49
Azelphurhttps://www.dropbox.com/s/5lts9gf3q963p1i/timelapse2.mp4 oops.16:49
popeyyeah, looks good16:50
popeyshame it's out of focus16:50
popeyseems focussed on the window16:50
Azelphuryea, dunno how I could fix that16:50
popeyor its a crap camera ☻16:50
popeyput it closer to the window16:50
popeylike attached16:50
Azelphurcan't, it has that ring around the bottom http://pressbox.co.uk/images/logos/346102_edimax-wireless-802.11n-dual-mode-pan-tilt-internet-camera-with-1.3m-pixels-lens-ic-7000ptn-l.jpg16:51
Azelphurso it's always like an inch away from the window16:51
Azelphurunless I propped it up at an angle somehow16:51
* Azelphur shall try that16:51
MartijnVdSdoes it run custom firmwaR?E16:51
AzelphurMartijnVdS: nope, stock16:51
popeyput it outside ☻16:51
popeyhow did you stream to ustream from it?16:52
Azelphurhaha, it's not waterproof16:52
Azelphurpopey: ffmpeg rtsp :)16:52
popeycan i see the command line?16:52
popeyi would love to do that16:52
Azelphur./ffmpeg -r 7 -i "http://admin:1234@" -filter:v "scale=640:480,crop=640:360:60:0" -f flv "${RTMP_URL}/${KEY} flashver=FME/2.5\20(compatible;\20FMSc\201.0)"16:53
Azelphurit was really tricky getting the framerate right, because mjpg has no framerate info16:53
AzelphurI basically hard coded 7, which is a tad faster than real time, the stream stops to catch up occasionally.16:53
Azelphurnope, getting it pressed up against the glass didn't do much16:56
Azelphurbut then, it is at an angle16:56
popeyoh, stream is working now17:01
popeyto be fair it's a cheap camera and it's a long way from the subject17:01
popeynice view though17:01

Azelphurdaftykins: he evicted me :)17:03
daftykinsthat's quite harsh17:03
daftykinsdue to anything legit?17:04
Azelphurdue to me complaining about him being a fraudster.17:04
daftykinsi guess that'll do it17:04
Azelphurhe also filed a false police report against me17:04
Azelphurthat company is pretty nuts.17:04
MartijnVdSwhat did he accuse you of?17:04
daftykinsdoes indeed sound like grade-A nutcase-ery17:04
AzelphurMartijnVdS: he called the police and told them that I was apparently going to smash the place up before I left17:04
Azelphurso I had the police on my doorstep one morning to give me a lecture.17:05
MartijnVdSAzelphur: ugh..17:05
Azelphuryea, was pretty ridiculous17:06
AzelphurI think I have the recording of the police turning up somewhere, will dig it out17:06
daftykinshrmm are you allowed to do that 0o17:06
Azelphurdaftykins: are you allowed to record in your own home? absolutely17:06
Azelphurespecially when you tell em clear as day you're recording17:06
MartijnVdSthey record the streets anyway17:07

Azelphurok then!17:12
AzelphurIf you get the video, let me know!17:12
daftykinsAzelphur: oooo17:12
MartijnVdSdaftykins: ^ those people should be able to help out17:12
MartijnVdSgetting the video out17:13
daftykinsi really don't get you.17:13
daftykinsyour odd style of humour just feels like great time wasting :(17:14
MartijnVdSwell, VXJunkies *is* time-wasting. I have to agree.17:14
MartijnVdSit's people making up ever more complex fake-tech stories about their fake hobby :)17:15
MartijnVdSso yeah.17:15
daftykinsAzelphur: would've hoped coppers would be able to tell you're not the type for wanton destruction from seeing you really eh :(17:16
daftykinsbut then i guess it takes all sorts17:16
Azelphuryea, I'm not exactly the wanton destruction type17:16
daftykinsmaybe once you get your AMD card... ;D17:17
Azelphursadly I never ended up going after my LL legally, with the banks trying to rob me and wotnot.17:17
AzelphurI get all the luck17:17
MartijnVdSdoes anyone have laptop battery tips? Mine seems to not want to charge >85%17:22
daftykinsis that even after a full discharge?17:23
MartijnVdSdaftykins: that's what I'm trying now17:24
MartijnVdSthe discharge part17:24
daftykinsis it old?17:24
MartijnVdS2-3 years or something17:25
MartijnVdSlet me check the charge cycle count17:25
MartijnVdShm, unavailable17:26
daftykinsthe rabbit hole deepens...17:27
MartijnVdSbut the windows tool claims battery performance is "good"17:28
MartijnVdSmaybe I should start saving up money for a haswell ultrabook or something17:28
daftykinstheir battery efficiency would be tempting alone17:29
MartijnVdSyeah, 8 hours I read somewhere?17:29
daftykins*shrug* :)17:31
daftykinsmy 13" Asus already pulls off 8-10hrs17:31
MartijnVdSdaftykins: much more than the 3-ish I get now17:31
daftykinswhenever i've put ubuntu on a laptop i've owned they've been utterly terrible for battery life17:32
MartijnVdS"i3 330M"17:32
daftykinsah pretty early then17:32
MartijnVdSdaftykins: it's been getting better over the years17:32
MartijnVdSdaftykins: 4.10 was HORRIBLE, 12.04 is only slightly worse than windows17:32
popeyits pretty comparable for me on 13.0417:35
popeyi dual boot windows and ubuntu on this laptop17:35
MartijnVdSpopey: I've upgraded it to saucy, but as I said, the battery is going wonky17:36
popeyoh yeah, on saucy now17:36
popeypondering installing xmir17:36
Azelphurxmir works now?17:38
popeyjust saw that earlier17:39
MartijnVdSDoes it support multi-monitor17:40

Guest30230hi, i have a quick question. the dell developers edition seems to list the killer wireless on the dell website. i thought it had an intel wireless that had issues? is this an update?19:47
daftykinsperhaps Dell are more qualified to answer?19:49
Guest30230yep and i will contact them tomorrow when their online :)  just thought someone here might know19:52
daftykinsthey look kinda nice those systems19:53
Guest30230i can only find reviews online with the intel wireless card listed in the spec. and people saying it had wireless issues.19:53
daftykinsalthough i'd wait until they make a haswell edition since imo laptops are primarily about battery life19:53
Guest30230so maybe its a nice update19:53
Guest30230is true and the  Schenker S413  should be in the uk in few weeks19:55
