schestowitz-TR ota May 12 05:05
schestowitz-TR a) due to a little irc glitch the logs will have double lines (better than missing ones) May 12 05:05
schestowitz-TR b) I had to manually rereun some jobs, I hope the ipfs output is correct (I think so) May 12 05:05
schestowitz-TR c) on TR some gz files are made separate from source dump, which means homedir is left with May 12 05:05
schestowitz-TR very large files, like 8gb for each dump of wordpress. today's gz files are OK. May 12 05:05
Techrights-sec se Git May 12 05:54
Techrights-sec ^see May 12 05:54
schestowitz-TR thanks, got it May 12 05:55
schestowitz-TR the issue is already resolved May 12 05:55
schestowitz-TR we had it before when migrating from one server to another May 12 05:55
schestowitz-TR and both logged to the same file May 12 05:55
schestowitz-TR having such a tool is very handy May 12 05:55
schestowitz-TR around 2am my connection only to TR got dropped for a few minutes May 12 05:55
schestowitz-TR I had to do lots of manual work as a result May 12 05:55
Techrights-sec I saw no disruption in the monitory program, aside from the usual aroudn 03:40   May 12 05:56

schestowitz-TR I am thinking of contacting an MP soon May 12 05:57
schestowitz-TR to keep this portal updated May 12 05:57
schestowitz-TR it should not be expensive to do May 12 05:57
schestowitz-TR and it is essential for scrutiny May 12 05:57
Techrights-sec what was the cause of the break in connectivity? May 12 05:58
schestowitz-TR I checked my router, no issue here May 12 05:59
schestowitz-TR it seems like some other people also dropped the connection around that time May 12 05:59
schestowitz-TR maybe some routing issue across the Atlantic May 12 05:59
schestowitz-TR but this was a reminder of the high cost of such outages ESPECIALLY around 2-4AM when there are racing May 12 05:59
schestowitz-TR conditions and several jobs running at certain times May 12 05:59
schestowitz-TR *race conditions May 12 05:59
Techrights-sec acck May 12 06:00
Techrights-sec yes May 12 06:00
schestowitz-TR be patient as later today I might know if I can do TR full-time May 12 06:04
schestowitz-TR rianne already has a job contingency May 12 06:04
schestowitz-TR not confirmed or anything, but we can cope OK May 12 06:04
Techrights-sec ack May 12 06:05
Techrights-sec is it ok to deduplicate the four logs from yesterday? May 12 06:05
Techrights-sec ok May 12 06:05
Techrights-sec ok   May 12 06:05
schestowitz-TR the chain of workflow meant that there are already text versions and gmi versions, May 12 06:05
schestowitz-TR with them in ipfs and a hash May 12 06:05
schestowitz-TR but for html we canoverrise what's on the main server, I suppose May 12 06:05
Techrights-sec ok deduplication of yesterday's four HTML IRC logs is done May 12 06:10
Techrights-sec no the dependencies are not there until the OS upgrade takes place May 12 06:10
Techrights-sec had to download, process, upload.  kept copies ofthe originals May 12 06:10
schestowitz-TR just had to pay the annual fee (not much) for scifitness -- a site over a decade old May 12 06:11
schestowitz-TR originally made as a contigency for my job May 12 06:11
schestowitz-TR :-) May 12 06:11
schestowitz-TR oh, good May 12 06:11
schestowitz-TR did yoyu run it on the server side? May 12 06:11
schestowitz-TR yes, site updates would be like a "job" if I leave the current one May 12 06:11
schestowitz-TR TR is a much bigger job than TM May 12 06:11
schestowitz-TR the duplication started around the time I updated and then rebooted kde neon, for the first time in a month May 12 06:14
schestowitz-TR their update process reminds me of Windows May 12 06:14
schestowitz-TR I saw something had gone wrong when the output report file showed 1.7 MB html file for TR May 12 06:14
schestowitz-TR and I knew it was too big to be sane May 12 06:14
schestowitz-TR I did not detect it until this morning because my monitoring script already use uniq May 12 06:14
schestowitz-TR did you watch my short video about neon? May 12 06:14
Techrights-sec I should look at Neon some time May 12 06:14
Techrights-sec no I've seen few, text works best for me so I see the summaries in Gemini for May 12 06:14
Techrights-sec the most part May 12 06:14
schestowitz-TR to be fair toBT, so far this year the connection has been very stable May 12 06:16
schestowitz-TR as long as they don's ilently patch and reboot I'm OK May 12 06:16
schestowitz-TR sometimes I check the status before going to bed, to see if they sent a patch, as they reboot about 8 hours later May 12 06:16
schestowitz-TR then, DNS is the main issue as points to the wrong address May 12 06:16
schestowitz-TR (aside from other issues) May 12 06:16
*DaemonFC has quit (Quit: Leaving) May 12 06:27
Techrights-sec Some ISPs don't have the competency to run even a DNS server and lack the May 12 06:27
Techrights-sec paltry technical knowlege to know why it is important to have it close May 12 06:27
Techrights-sec to the end user May 12 06:27
schestowitz-TR me connects to (my rsspi upstairs May 12 06:29
schestowitz-TR me looks up DNS May 12 06:29
schestowitz-TR me sends a packet across the Atlantic May 12 06:29
schestowitz-TR Gulag reponds with an IP address May 12 06:29
schestowitz-TR oh, wait, that's home May 12 06:29
schestowitz-TR me connects to MY OWN HOME May 12 06:29
schestowitz-TR Thanks, Gulag! May 12 06:29
Techrights-sec the DNS listed on the RPi is your home BT router which probably serves as May 12 06:30
Techrights-sec a cache too May 12 06:30
Techrights-sec at least as far as the outgoing connections go May 12 06:30
schestowitz-TR yes, I was exaggerating a bit May 12 06:31
schestowitz-TR just checked resolv.conf May 12 06:31
schestowitz-TR 192.168.x by default May 12 06:31
schestowitz-TR and some ipv6 address otherwise May 12 06:31
schestowitz-TR I assume it's put there by the ISP when connecting May 12 06:32
schestowitz-TR let's see where that us... May 12 06:32

schestowitz-TR Assuming I did this correctly, at least I should be happy not to have an ISP that relays DNS lookups May 12 06:43
schestowitz-TR across an ocean to foreign spying companies May 12 06:43
schestowitz-TR it seems like it links to the router, which then does its own thing for DNS May 12 06:43
schestowitz-TR maybe hidden away May 12 06:43
Techrights-sec is it your BT router?  It is one hop from your RPi May 12 06:44
Techrights-sec SSH is usedthere May 12 06:44
Techrights-sec yes if you look in the router's web admin interface it may tell where it is May 12 06:44
Techrights-sec forwarding DNS requests to May 12 06:44
schestowitz " To use a dynamic domain name system (DNS) service, you'll first need to register with a service provider. The service provider will send you the information that you'll need to set up your Hub (including your service username, password and host name). " May 12 06:46
schestowitz-TR OK, May 12 06:47
schestowitz-TR and May 12 06:47
schestowitz-TR so unless I change this at the client end, it will default to the router, which uses that May 12 06:47
schestowitz-TR oops May 12 06:47
schestowitz-TR the second is 56, not 57 May 12 06:47
schestowitz-TR the web interfact does not let me change that May 12 06:47
Techrights-sec ack May 12 06:47
schestowitz-TR the external drive on the pi started working really hard May 12 07:10
schestowitz-TR I unmount'ed it May 12 07:10
schestowitz-TR and we put the drive back in thr drawer May 12 07:10
schestowitz-TR will swap over to another external anyway May 12 07:10
schestowitz-TR good practice regardless May 12 07:10
schestowitz-TR a bit extra physical effort May 12 07:10

schestowitz-TR inc. rianne's working notes and mine May 12 07:10
schestowitz-TR if we leave the job, rianne's noc pi with 2 VPNs can be repurpsosed for something else May 12 07:10
schestowitz-TR note to internal, cannot verify yet: seems like spamnil now pays for spambots or clickbots May 12 07:13
schestowitz-TR to boost the "views" of older vdideos May 12 07:13
schestowitz-TR no other explanation given the pattern I observed last night May 12 07:13
schestowitz-TR but it is hard to prove except by patterns May 12 07:13
Techrights-sec could be May 12 07:13
schestowitz-TR I know suh "services" exist for typical social control media May 12 07:13
schestowitz-TR so gulagtube is likely covered tio May 12 07:13
schestowitz-TR swapnil cannot market himself if the "guests" see the videos are viewed by almost nobody May 12 07:13

schestowitz-TR because it was embarassing May 12 07:15
schestowitz-TR I remember the counts in Muktware, more than 10 times higher May 12 07:15
schestowitz-TR that site now boosts the worst of the worst May 12 07:15

schestowitz-TR maybe he stopped using it May 12 07:30

*u-amarsh04 has quit (Quit: Konversation terminated!) May 12 07:40
Techrights-sec yes, strategically much  more important, though NVDIA's move, if sincere, is May 12 07:44
Techrights-sec also valuable to advance Software Freedom May 12 07:44
schestowitz-TR these sorts of posts are very time-consuming, but a lot more vaulable then YetAnorher(R) May 12 07:58
schestowitz-TR NVIDIA yada yada open source blah blah May 12 07:58
schestowitz-TR yes, I have just said this to rianne, very important May 12 07:58
schestowitz-TR ntoice however I was referring to the COVERAGE of the new May 12 07:58
schestowitz-TR rather than the news May 12 07:58
Techrights-sec yes true May 12 08:00
Techrights-sec however, nvidia's announcement needs examiniation by some with kernel or driver May 12 08:00
Techrights-sec experience to say whether anything of substance has been freed May 12 08:00
Techrights-sec it's not openwashing but I'd be more comfortable seeing an assessment of May 12 08:00
Techrights-sec how much essential material is still locked May 12 08:00
Techrights-sec The "unedited press conference" mentions "open source" by name at about 12:00 May 12 08:00
Techrights-sec unfortunately nvidia seemsto have fallen into github May 12 08:00
schestowitz-TR usually I'm of the opinion that, if you can just link to the original May 12 08:00
schestowitz-TR e.g. distro release May 12 08:00
schestowitz-TR do that May 12 08:00
schestowitz-TR no need for many mal-infmormed bits of blogspam May 12 08:00
