DJonesAre you able to update the dns for freedns.afraid.org using ddclient or other software/script, from what I can see, ddclient stopped supporting freedns08:06
brobostigonmorning boys and girls.08:07
MooDooDJones: popey should be able to answer that for you...I'm still using no-ip, just created a ddns.net host instead.08:09
popeyDJones: I update using my dd-wrt router08:10
DJonesMooDoo: I think popey said his router does the update08:10
MooDoohmmm wonder if I can update mine now....08:10
diploDJones, it needs to be the newest version08:11
diploBug in previous versions ( not sure if fixed on 14.04 )08:11
MooDoooo my router supports it now, is it worth changing my router software to this?08:11
DJonesI've got a sky router so thats a no go08:16
popeyi used to do it on my server... lemme see what i used08:16
MooDooDJones: asus router here, might try it see what it's like.08:16
bigcalmGood morning peeps :)08:26
MooDoomorning bigcalm08:26
DJonesAccording to MS it was a "technical error" that took all the no-ip users down, but they've fully restored things as of 6am Pacific time http://www.theinquirer.net/inquirer/news/2352891/microsoft-kills-off-no-ip-accounts-in-anti-cybercrime-crusade?utm_source=twitterfeed...... Erm, no they haven't08:28

JamesTaitGood morning all; happy I Forgot Day! :-D08:32
dwatkinsawilkins: I have the Tomato firmware on an old Linksys which I use as a DHCP server and wifi repeater08:32
bigcalmJamesTait: sorry, what day is it?08:33
foobarrydo chromecast work with most routers/wifi?08:33
awilkinsdwatkins, Sometimes I'm tempted to go back using the ISP router... it has a newer radio and possibly better antennae than my old one08:33
foobarryseems to be a suppored routers list on the web, bit scary08:33
dwatkinsawilkins: I've switched ISPs so much I have two spare08:33
JamesTaitfoobarry, I forgot. :-/08:34
awilkinsdwatkins, And maybe just keep using the Buffalo for it's utility08:34
dwatkinsToday is World UFO Day.08:34
awilkinsdwatkins, Being able to SSH to your router from outside your home network is super useful08:34
JamesTaitdwatkins, there is that as well. :)08:34
dwatkinsawilkins: absolutely, yes - I call it "poor-man's vpn"08:34
JamesTaitdwatkins, but I forgot about it. :-P08:34
awilkinsdwatkins,   http://www.linuxjournal.com/content/ssh-tunneling-poor-techies-vpn08:35
dwatkinsawilkins: neat, I tend to just manually forward ports08:35
awilkinsdwatkins, I usually just use the -D flag and make a SOCKS proxy08:35
dwatkinsI have a proxy that's accessible from work's IP address (but not publically, so Freenode don't ban me ;) )08:36
dwatkinsrunning ESXi on a machine at home means I have three sets of -L port forwarding going on at the moment08:36
MooDoodwatkins: I had esxi until I realised the cpu doesn't support VT :(08:37
MooDooyup, I suppose I could install a xeon processor, but CBA lol08:41
foobarryi throw stuff away with better specs ;)08:42
MooDoofoobarry: throw it in my direction ;)08:42
foobarrygot about 30cm08:43
dwatkinsMooDoo: how can I check (via ssh to the ESXi server)? Is it in the "cat /proc/cpuinfo" output [or not, as the case may be]?08:44
dwatkinsI don't have an ESXi license, but work has a site license for VMWare Workstation, and that has a web interface, so I'll use that, since this is mostly for teaching myself and testing of stuff.08:45
MooDoodwatkins: are you installing 64bit servers on a 64bit host.08:45
dwatkinsMooDoo: yes08:45
dwatkinsLinux xubuntu-vm 3.13.0-24-generic #46-Ubuntu SMP Thu Apr 10 19:11:08 UTC 2014 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux08:46
MooDoodwatkins: then you should be ok, I have a 64bit install, but it will only let me install 32bit hosts as I've got no vt tech08:46
dwatkinsaha gotcha, just a shame they're now enforcing the 60-day trial08:47
dwatkinsthey weren't at v5.1, I gather.08:47
MooDoodwatkins: if you license it which for esxi is free you remove the 60 limit08:47
MooDoodwatkins: Intel CPUs require EM64T and VT support in the chip and in the BIOS to run 64-bit virtual machines. This article helps you ensure your processor is VT-capable, and it also instructs you on how to enable this feature.08:48
dwatkinsMooDoo: I don't understand what you mean about the 60 limit, sorry08:48
dwatkinsoh, if I buy a license, yes08:48
MooDoodwatkins: is it's normal free esxi, then you can license it for free which removes the 60 day triel08:49
dwatkinsoh awesome, so I don't have to reinstall?08:49
dwatkinscan I still use vSphere, though?08:49
MooDoodwatkins: yup as far as I'm aware, take a look at this - https://communities.vmware.com/thread/42618708:51
MooDooyou just have to get the license from vmware, and use the vpshere client to install the licese.....IIRC!  i would research first08:52
MooDoowhen you register the free version, you loose some functionality, but it's not much08:52
dwatkinsawesomesauce, thanks MooDoo :)08:54
MooDooyou're welcome :D08:54
dwatkinsreinstalling the host with xubuntu and putting vmware workstation on it probably wouldn't be gigantically different from the way ESXi works, but it would take a while.08:54
JamesTait"I started installing updates and it was taking ages and didn't seem to be doing anything, so I just switched it off."  That could turn out badly. :(09:03
awilkinsImagine it's worse on Windows, TBH09:04
awilkinsBut even so, not good09:04
NET||abusefinding a really weird issue with ubuntu packaged chromium-browser, if i highlight and drag any content on a webpage, the tab freezes up09:08

diddledanbigcalm: personally, and because I don't know of a proper way (this might be the proper way) I'd switch to the correct branch, cherry pick the commit across and then switch to the wrong branch and revert the original commit20:00
